He is commonly known under his pseudonym Charles Dodd. he is said to have witnessed the siege of Douay (1712) as chaplain to an English regiment; certainly he wrote in that character a short History of the English College at Douay (1713) which purported to be by a Protestant chaplain. As it attacked the Jesuits, Father Thomas Hunter published his Modest Defence (1714), to which Dodd replied in The Secret Policy of the English Society of Jesus (1715).

        An Act for Providing a Publick Reward for such Person or Persons as shall Discover the Longitude at Sea [In a volume combining parliamentary acts for the twelfth year of Queen Anne's reign, with brief section for first year of George I]

      London: John Baskett, 1714. Folio, with 4 pp. table; bound with 22 other parliamentary acts for the session in contemporary plain calf, brown label, slightly rubbed, in very good condition. The longitude reward announced. The important first publication of the Longitude Act: 'nothing is so much wanted and desired at Sea, as the Discovery of the Longitude'. The act - more often seen in disbound form - is here in its appropriate context in the full printing of the twenty-three Acts of the first session of parliament in 1714. Other acts in the session are of some interest: for example one act removes the "ad valorem" tax on imported books and prints, another is for "Encouraging the Tobacco-Trade",The discovery of an accurate method of measuring longitude was recognised as fundamental to the naval expansion of Britain, especially after disasters such as the loss of Admiral Shovell's squadron on the Isles of Scilly in 1707. The Act was promulgated in July 1714 and is here published by the then Queen's printer John Baskett, as 'An act for providing a publick reward for such person or persons as shall discover the longitude at sea' (pp. [353]-357). This led to the formation of the Commissioners for the Discovery of the Longitude at Sea, otherwise known as the Board of Longitude. One of the first known examples of a government-sponsored award to stimulate scientific research, the board was given the authority to award a first prize of £20,000 to any person who submitted a proposal capable of measuring longitude within half a degree of a great circle, as well as lesser awards and small grants.A committee was quickly formed, with experts such as Newton and Halley heavily involved. Although several proposals were made, for two decades none were even considered likely enough to require the board formally convening. It was not until the trial of Harrison's first chronometer, H-1, that the board first met.

He went by sea from Amsterdam along the coast of Norway to Archangel above the polar circle, and travelled by river and overland southwards through Russia and the Caspian Sea, from there over land to Persia, the Gulf and by ship again onward to Batavia (now Jakarta), back to Persia, and across the Mediterranean homewards.

"Viewed as a whole, the contents [of Harmonia Sacra], both as to text and music, reveal a style that can best be described as very 'high church'... Purcell had not only contributed a larger share than anyone else to Harmonia Sacra, book I, but, as Henry Playford stated in a preface..., had taken upon himself the responsibilities of music editor as well." Zimmerman p. 147. "In early July 1693 the second volume of Harmonia Sacra was advertised for sale, contained in which were five of Purcell's finest devotional songs." King: Henry Purcell, p. 195. " 'In guilty night' is unique among all Purcell's sacred music: it fits into no single category, combining elements of the devotional song with those of the cantata and the oratorio." ibid p. 196 "Harmonia Sacra also contained two magnificent settings for solo soprano which demonstrate how Purcell had taken the dramatic, declamatory Italian style and created his own variant, brilliantly colourful yet always aware of every subtlety in the text..." ibid p. 197 Purcell's treatment of Nahum Tate's 'Tell me, some pitying angel'... is one of the greatest examples of Purcell's genius for setting words and capturing changing emotions, and arguable one of the best solo settings in the whole English musical repertoire." ibid In addition to works by Purcell, these volumes include pieces by Blow, Carissimi, Clark, Croft, Gratiani, King and others.

        Biblische Historien (Historie)

      Very Good 1714, Hamburg Germany. The first ever printing of this seminal classic. The first time that Bible stories were printed specifically for children. Thus it was somewhat "cleansed" before publication. One source I found says that the incest and murder committed by David were altered, among other things. It is four inches by seven inches, and includes 104 plates from engravings, 52 in the Old Testament, and 52 in the New Testament. There are 400 pages of text, plus the eight page introduction. Also, all the plates are on unnumbered pages, for a total of 512 printed pages. The book is in its original calves leather boards and spine, which are still attached but fragile. All pages, including all front and rear endpapers, are present. The last two plates have been repaired at the edges, and several pages inside have edge tears or stains, but they are minimal. There is the expected foxing throughout, and a former owner name and inscription in pencil at the front and a name alone in pencil at the rear. The leather of the boards and spine are rubbed and worn, and partially chipped off at the spine ends. The original black leather spine label with gilt titles is still present. A rare gem, the only copy I have ever seen of the original first printing from 1714. Johann Hübner (1668-1731) was a German geographer born in Türchau bei Zittau on May 15, 1668. He studied Theology, History and Geography in Leipzig from 1689 onwards. From 1691 he was Master, and then from 1694 Rector, of the Gymansium at Merseburg (Martisberg); then from 1711 of the Johanneum College in Hamburg. Hübner worked with Nuremberg mapmaker J B Homann (1663-1724) and English cartographer Jean Palairet (1697-1774). His other published works included Kurze Fragen aus der alten und neuen Geographie (Leipzig 1693 ) and Museum Geographicum, Das Ist: In Verzeichnis der besten Land-Charten...nebst einem Vorchlage, wie daruas allerhand große und kleine Atlantes können sortiert...

        Hemisphere Septentrional pour voir plus distinctement les Terres Arctiques

      Paris 1714 - Engraved double-page map, period hand colouring in outline. Sheet size: 19 1/4 x 23 3/4 inches. Top margin trimmed close to plate mark, others wide; small abrasion in the Atlantic, mild soiling in margins. Handsome early 18th century polar projection map of the northern hemisphere. First edition of this polar projection of the Northern Hemisphere, drawn with scientific accuracy. De L'Isle is most highly regarded for his meticulous research and for leaving blank any area for which no knowledge was available; earlier cartographers were wont to insert guesswork coastlines and topographical features. This map is the first to correctly place the west coast of North America by moving it substantially eastward from previous mappings. California is correctly shown as a peninsula (at a time when it was often still shown as an island). Much of the northwest of North America is left blank. Polar projections distort increasingly as you approach the equatorial parts, but are accurate at the poles and arctic latitudes; the Mercator projection has just the opposite effect - giving northern latitudes disproportionate volume. This map corrects that impression. Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726) was the son of a cartographer and a pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. [Attributes: First Edition]

      . Amsterdam, R. and G. Wetstein, J. Oosterwyk and H. van de Gaete, 1714. Folio (33.3 x 21.1 cm). Allegorical frontispiece (by Picart, dated 1711), title page (in red and black ink), engraved portrait of de Bruyn (by G. Kneller), [vi], 472, [xii] pp., and 260 numbered engraved plates (many double, folded), two large maps, and 34 large text engravings, not numbered, including, portraits, views, etc. Contemporary blind ruled and embossed vellum. Spine with six raised bands, title written in ink, in a neat contemporary hand.* First edition, second issue of one of the most richly illustrated voyages through Russia, Persia and adjacent countries and territories. This voyage was made by the Dutch painter Cornelis de Bruin (as on title page), or de Bruyn (as in the portrait) (1652-1727). He went by sea from Amsterdam along the coast of Norway to Archangel above the polar circle, and travelled by river and overland southwards through Russia and the Caspian Sea, from there over land to Persia, the Gulf and by ship again onward to Batavia (now Jakarta), back to Persia, and across the Mediterranean homewards. It is an extensive work important to naval and travel history, and includes beautiful large panoramic views of, for instance, Archangel, Moscow, and "Spahan" (= Isfahan), some are impressively long when unfolded. Most are as stated in the title, from drawings made on the spot by de Bruin himself. The work was dedicated to Anton Ulrich, Duke of Brunswyk and Lunenburg. This edition is identical to the 1711 edition published for the author by Willem and David Goerree. Two book plates of former private owners on front paste-down, one small previous owner's stamp on first blank, old Japanese paper reinforcements to the outer edge of the front flyleaf and first blank, tiny weak bookseller's stamp in title page lower margin, a pencil annotation below the portrait of De Bruin, otherwise clean. In all an excellent copy in contemporary binding. The plates in a strong impression. Henze I, 378; Tiele 207, 209..

        The Rape of the Lock: An Heroi-comical Poem. In Five Canto's (Signed Leather Binding)

      Bernard Lintott, London 1714 - SIGNED BINDING by Lloyd and Wallis. Slim 12mo, late 19th century full navy crushed morocco gilt, raised bands, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. First complete edition and first separate publication of Pope's mock-heroic masterpiece; the 1st edition to contain all five cantos of the poem. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and five plates, as well as a later portrait of Arabella Fermor Inserted opposite the dedication. Pope was initially inspired to compose The Rape of the Lock in order to resolve a quarrel that arose between the Fermor and Petre families after Robert lord Petre snipped a lock of Arabella Fermor's hair. Hoping to ease the animosity between the two families through playful humor, Pope, with Arabella Fermor's permission, first published The Rape of the Lock in two cantos in Lintott's "Miscellaneous Poems and Translations" in 1712. Pope's genius, however, is fully displayed in the five-canto version of the poem in which he expands the sketch to include divine machinery, albeit on the miniature scale of sylphs and gnomes. "One of Pope's most brilliant performances, it has also been one of his most popular" (DFrabble, 810). Rothschils170. Bookplates. Early owner inscription, dated 1766, and a few other small ink marks on washed title page. A lovely copy, beautifully bound in full morocco by Lloyd and Wallis. Photos available upon request.
