        Bassin de Neptune.

      1714 - F. Delamonce Illustrated plate of fountain at Versailles from Des Jardens de Versailles Paris, 1714 Hand-colored copperplate engraving (later color) 30 ½" x 37" framed Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles, which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to create a center for the royal court at Versailles. Beginning in 1669, the architect, Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), began a detailed renovation of the château. The Château of Versailles, outside of Paris, was converted into a spectacular royal palace in a series of four major and distinct building campaigns. By the end of the third building campaign, the Château had taken on most of the appearance that it retains to this day, except for the Royal Chapel in the last decade of the reign. Louis XIV officially moved to Versailles, along with the royal court, on May 6, 1682. Louis had several reasons for creating such a symbol of extravagant opulence and stately grandeur, and for shifting the seat of the monarch. By moving the royal court and the seat of the French government, Louis XIV hoped to gain greater control of the government from the nobility. All the power of France emanated from this centre: there were government offices here, as well as the homes of thousands of courtiers and all the attendant functionaries of court. By requiring that nobles of a certain rank and position spend time each year at Versailles, Louis prevented them from developing their own regional power and kept them from countering his efforts to centralize the French government in an absolute monarchy. Thus, many noblemen had to either to give up all influence, or to depend entirely on the king for grants and subsidies. Instead of exercising power and potentially creating trouble, the nobles vied for the honor of dining at the king’s table or the privilege of carrying a candlestick as the king retired to his bedroom. Versailles also served as a dazzling and awe-inspiring setting for state affairs and for the reception of foreign dignitaries, where the attention was not shared with the city of Paris, but was assumed solely by the king. Court life centered on magnificence; courtiers lived lives of expensive luxury, dressed with suitable magnificence and constantly attended balls, dinners, performances and celebrations. This view is from a series of grand views which showcase the gardens of Versailles, the grounds of which are the largest formal gardens ever created, with its extensive fountains and canals. The gardens at Versailles were designed by the landscape architect André Le Nôtre (1673-1700). Le Nôtre modified the original gardens by expanding them and giving them a sense of openness and larger scale. The plan was centered by the central axis of the Grand Canal (le Canal), an ornamental body of water covering 105 acres. The gardens are centered on the south front of the palace, which is set on a terrace, giving the palace a sweeping view of the gardens. The Fountain of Latona is located at the foot of the steps, and tells a story taken from Ovid’s poem Metamorphoses, which was considered an allegory of the Fronde, the French civil war (1646-53) that occurred when Louis XIV was a child.

        The Rape of the Lock. An Heroi-Comical Poem in Five Canto's; BOUND WITH A Key to the Lock or, A Treatise Proving, Beyond All Contradiction, the Dangerous Tendency of a Late Poem, Entituled [sic], . To Government and Religion By Esdras Barnivelt, Apoth.

      Printed for Bernard Lintott, at the Cross-Keys in Fleetstreet, 1714; Printed for J. Roberts, 1715, London - Pp.

ESTC - T5727 with the catchword "Th" on p.8 and the misnumbered pages 29, 44 and 45 (26, 45, 44 respectively). "First published anonymously in Lintot's Miscellany in May 1712 in two cantos (334 lines), but then revised, expanded and reissued under Pope's name on March 2, 1714, in a much-expanded 5-canto version (794 lines)." - Wikipedia. BOUND WITH "A Key to the Lock. Or, A Treatise proving, beyond all Contradiction, the dangerous Tendency of a late Poem, entituled [sic], The Rape of the Lock. To Government and Religion. By Esdras Barnivelt, Apoth. The Second Edition. To which are added commendatory Copies of Verses, by the most Eminent Political Wits of the Age." "Written in 1715 by Pope (using the pseudonym Esdras Barnivelt), this humorous interpretation of The Rape of the Lock serves as a warning to critics not to take the poem too seriously. In the Key Pope exposes his own poem as a dangerous political allegory (Belinda represents Great Britain, the Lock represents the Barrier Treaty.). The Key also shows Pope trying to placate Sir George Brown (the original for Sir Plume, Sir George was none too happy with the role he played in the poem) by indicating there were at least two possible originals for Sir Plume. " P. 8, then 7-32, first leaf of text catchword "nal", ESTC - T5683. Bound in modern quarter maroon morocco and cloth boards, gilt spine lettering, by Sangorski and Sutcliffe.

        The Publick Spirit of the Whigs: Set forth in their Generous Encouragement of the Author of the Crisis: with some Observations on the Seasonableness, Candor, Erudition, and Style of that Treatise

      London: Printed for John Morphew, 1714 - The scarce first issue of one of Swift's most effective political pamphlets, written on behalf of the government against Steele's The Crisis. Swift's aspersions on the Scottish peers made the Lords seek special means to suppress his work, and it was reprinted with the offending passages removed. His remarks here make it clear why the suppression was sought: in reply to Steele's note that the Kingdom of Scotland had many nobles, Swift chips in: "They had indeed; and to that we owe one of the great and necessary Evils of the Union upon the Foot it now stands. Their Nobility is indeed so numerous, that the whole Revenues of their Country would be hardly able to maintain them according to the Dignity of their Titles; and what is infinitely worse, they are never likely to be Extinct till the last Period of all Things . I could Point out some with great Titles, who affected to appear very vigorous for Dissolving the Union, though their whole Revenues before that Period would have ill maintained a Welch Justice of the Peace; and have since gathered more Money than ever any Scotchmen, who had not travell'd, could form an Idea of."

Le tout selon l'hypothese de Copernic. Expliquée & demontrée. Paris, Jacques Quillau, 1714. 8vo. With 2 engraved illustration plates and 2 engraved plates with movable parts. Contemporary sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      De La Lande, p. 361; Cat. Weil 25, no. 167 (lacking 1 moveable plate); cf. Houzeau-Lancaster 7531 (Premontval's biography). First and only edition of descriptions and illustrations of 4 ingenious and unusual astronomical instruments, all designed and operating according to the Copernican system. The first is one of the earliest examples of a clockwork model of the Copernican solar system. Pigeon notes that the terrestrial globe in the complete planetary system is too small to conveniently demonstrate the earth's movements, so he also built a separate larger one, described and illustrated in the next part of the book. Next comes Pigeon's planisphere, not merely illustrated but included in the book in working form, with a turning dial. It is designed to calculate the distances of the various planets. Finally a second working instrument is included: an orthographic equatorial projection of the globe with a movable pointer to indicate the position of the sun. In very good condition. The hinges are cracked and there is minor damage to the spine and the surface of the leather, but the binding remains structurally good.

        M. Frobichers Scheeps 'Togt, Gedaan om de Noord, ter Ontdekking van een Straat na Cataya en China.

      1714 - Leiden, c.1714. Original colour. Map within separately-printed frame-like border, total printed area 220 x 290mm. Martin Frobisher's map of his route across the North Atlantic to Greenland in 1576, with the straits he discovered there. However it is based on his belief in the existance of the mythical island of 'Frisland', causing him to mistake Greenland for his true location on Baffin Island in Canada. Frobisher (1535-94) intended to find the the North West Passage: he landed on Greenland but thought it to be the non-existent Frisland shown on his charts. When he sailed on and touched land again he believed he had arrived in Greenland when in fact he was at what is now Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic. Entering the bay he believed he had discovered a strait on Greenland, and even two more voyages (1577 & 1578) did nothing to make him doubt himself. Two more voyages (1577 & 1578) did nothing to make him doubt himself. Over a century later this map still shows Frobisher's Strait on Greenland, although Frisland had been consigned to history.

A scarce map of Nottinghashire, from Overton's county atlas, 'England Fully Described in a Compleatt Sett of Mapps of ye County's of England and Wales'. It is unusual in that the map takes up less than half the area: a large plan of Nottingham fills the top left half of the sheet, not based on that by Speed but apparently a new survey. Under that is the title cartouche and a text box with a few statistics and sundry information, ending 'the most noted rivers are the Trent and Erwash, its cheif Comõdities the best Liquorice, Plaster like that of Paris, Malt'.

During his father's lifetime the firm was known as J. and J. Pemberton. They were the publishers for the House of Commons, and also for the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts. After the death of his father in 1739, John the younger was joined by his brother Henry, and their joint imprint is found in books until 1744; but as there is no mention of John in the will of Henry, proved in 1748, it may be presumed that he died or retired between 1744 and 1748."

Rene-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, or Robert de La Salle was a French explorer. He explored the Great Lakes region of the United States and Canada, the Mississippi River, and the Gulf of Mexico. After sailing for New France in 1666, La Salle began issuing land grants and learning the native language. The Mohawk told him the Ohio River flowed into the Mississippi River. Thinking the river flowed into the Gulf of Mexico, La Salle began his expedition to find a western passage to China. Details La Salle's final expeditions from July 1684 to August 1688. The main goal of the expedition was to establish a French Colony on the Gulf of Mexico, akin to Quebec, on the mouth of the Mississippi River, as a foothold between Spain's holdings in North America. The expedition was a failure, from pirate attacks sinking one ship and poor navigation which sent the foundation of the colony, Fort Saint Louis, 400 miles west of the intend landing. La Salle led a group eastward on foot on three occasions to try to locate the mouth of the Mississippi. On the final search, some of the remaining 36 men mutinied, near present day Navasota, Texas. On March 19, 1687, La Salle was slain by Pierre Duhaut during an ambush while talking to Duhaut's decoy, Jean L'Archeveque. The remaining six men, led by Henri Joutel, made their way to Illinois Country. During their journey through Illinois to Canada, the men did not tell anyone that La Salle was dead. They reached France in the summer of 1688 and informed King Louis of La Salle's death and the horrible conditions in the colony.The colony itself lasting only until 1688, when Karankawa-speaking Native Americans killed the remaining adults and took four children as adopted captives. Joutel's journal provides some of the earliest written information on the interior, natural history, and ethnography of central North America. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
