      London: Printed for A. Bell, et al, 1714.. [2],xxi,[9],205,[5]pp. plus folding map. Contemporary paneled calf, expertly rebacked with original backstrip preserved. Armorial bookplate. Map clean and bright. Fine. The first translation into English of the version of Joutel's narrative edited by De Michel, originally published in Paris the previous year, including the account of La Salle's Texas colony and the return of the remainder of his party to Canada via the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers. Of the three major narratives of the journey, this record, by La Salle's closest subordinate, is the most valuable. The party embarked in 1684, ostensibly to establish a French base at the mouth of the Mississippi as a headquarters for operations, but also to push as far as possible into the region in order to gain a foothold against the Spanish. In fact, through a conscious deceit, the base was established at Espiritu Santo Bay, in Texas, from whence the party spent two years making excursions into the surrounding territory. When promised reinforcements failed to appear, La Salle and his men determined to return to Canada via the Mississippi; however, one of the company assassinated La Salle when they reached the Trinity River, and the party split up. Some of the survivors, including Joutel, pressed on, reaching Canada by way of the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers. Joutel's account is highlighted by the splendid map based on his own observations. This is the first map showing the results of La Salle's journeys, and for its era it gives very accurate delineations of the course of the Mississippi from its northern headwaters to its mouth, and of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence, complete with a beautiful engraved vignette of Niagara Falls. Joutel's JOURNAL... is one of the major works of the period on the region, and "of the three narratives of this journey, those of Joutel, Cavelier, and Douay, the first is by far the best" (Francis Parkman).

"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.

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.

        Historia Ecclesiastica Dissertationibus

      Paris - Anthony Dezallier, 1714 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A set of the Ecclesiastical History Dissertations. In Latin. With vignette title pages and decorative head- and tailpieces. Written by Natalis Alexandri (or Nol Alexandre), a Parisien priest, theologist and historian. In 1654, Alexandre joined the Dominicans in his hometown. Shortly after his ordination, he was appointed professor (first regent) of philosophy at the convent of Saint-Jacques in Paris. The success of Alexandre's subsequent lectures at the Sorbonne led to his selection by Jean-Baptiste Colbert as tutor to his son, Jacques Nicolas Colbert, afterwards archbishop of Rouen. Alexandre obtained the degree of doctor in divinity from the Sorbonne in 1675 and for twelve years taught philosophy, theology and ecclesiastical law to the members of the Saint-Jacques community. He played a prominent part in ecclesiastical affairs and preached several times before Louis XIV, who granted him an annual pension of 800 livres. He became provincial of his order in 1706, but was banished to Chtellerault in 1709 for having subscribed to the Jansenist Cas de conscience (1703), and was deprived of his pension in 1713 on account of his opposition to the bull Unigenitus. He died in Paris on August 21, 1724, having lost his sight some time before owing to his strenuous literary activity. His numerous works are still much valued by ecclesiastical students. Complete in eight volumes. Condition: Invellum bindings. Externally worn, withrubbing and marks to the boards. Some worming to boards and spines. Some loss to spines of volumes III, V, VII and VIII.

        The Gamester: A Comedy. As it is Acted at the New Theatre In Lincolns-Inn Fields By Her Majesty's Servants. The Prologue Spoke by Mr. Betterton. Written by N. Rowe, Esq; The Third Edition

      1714 Duodecimo, 6.3 x 3.75 inches. Third edition. A4, B-D12, E2. 75 pages. This copy has a pale splotch on the title page, and two leaves have a slight water stain. It is a large copy, and has been recently rebound in full parchment over boards.   A stand  female playwright  of what has been called "A sad lot were all these early feminine intruders into the field of letters, -Aphra Behn, Mrs. Manley, Mrs. Pilkington, and the rest. Mrs. Centlivre was the best of them. Almost the first of her sex to adopt literature as a calling, she may well be regarded as an unconscious reformer, the leader of a forlorn hope against that literary fortress which was so long defended by the cruel sneers of its masculine garrison. She fell upon the glacis. But over her body the Amazons have marched on to victory." (H. A. Huntington, "Mrs. Centlivre," Atlantic Monthly, 1882, vol. 49, page 764. "[Centlivre's] plays have a provoking spirit and volatile salt in them, which still preserves them, from decay. Congreve is said to have been jealous of their success at the time, and that it was one cause which drove him in disgust from the stage. If so, it was without any good reason, for these plays have great and intrinsic merit in them, which entitled them to their popularity, and besides, their merit was of a kind entirely different from his own." (William Hazlitt, 1818, "Lectures on the English Comic Writers," Lecture viii. The original source for the plot line was Jean Francois Regnard's "Le Joueur." The prologue was written by Nicholas Rowe (1674-1718).

The Free-Holder, or political essays. London: printed for D. Midwinter and J. Tonson, 1716. 12mo (6 3/8 x 3 7/8 inches). Half-title. First edition in book form. CBEL II, 1101; cf. Rothschild I, 10 (8vo issue). 3 works in four volumes. Uniform contemporary black morocco, covers elaborately panelled in gilt with floral cornerpieces, spines in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second compartment, the others elaborately tooled in gilt, marbled endpapers (one volume with hinge repaired). Provenance: Anne White (inscription dated 1772 in each volume). A very fine series in a very unusual contemporary binding. The use of morocco and the elaborate tooling suggest that, originally, these works were either bound for a very high status original owner, or that they were intended for presentation. This is counteracted by the knowledge that these works were also available in an octavo format that was more expensive. The likely explanation is that they originally formed part of a gentleman's (or ladies) personal travelling library. In any event, all three works offer a contemporary light on British political events of the day: a fascinating glimpse of an important period in modern history.

Some foxing and uniform tanning, thin paper flaw along outer margin of B6 in first volume (with no loss), lower portion of final general title backed at an early point, with no loss of letterpress, and a bit of soiling to lower margins of following three leaves, but a good set, attractively bound, with the bookplates of Edward and Andrew W. Arnold. The first collected edition of Moliere in English, translated (with the exception of two of the plays), with a prefatory Life, by John Ozell, a prolific translator of the times who found his capacity for such work derided by Pope and Swift. Moliere was of considerable influence on the English stage via adaptations and derivatives by greater and lesser talents, and even if the translations printed here were considered less than graceful by some, they were widely read. At the end of his Dedication to the Earl of Dorset and Middlesex, Ozell notes "that the Misanthrope and Malade Imaginaire ... are translated by other Persons, whose Names I forbear to mention, since they have thought fit to conceal themselves."

        Recueil de cent estampes représentant differentes nations du Levant. [With, part two:] Explication des cent estampes qui représentent les costumes des differentes nations du Levant. Avec de nouvelles estampes de ceremonies turques qui ont aussi leurs explications

      Paris: Le Hay and Duchange, 1714; Jacques Collombat, 1715. Folio. (19 3/4 x 13 inches). Engraved title, 102 engraved plates (comprising 100 numbered plates and 2 unnumbered, 3 double-page), one leaf of engraved music. Contemporary red morocco, covers ruled in gilt, spine in eight compartments with raised bands, black morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers (expert restoration to the joints). A lovely copy of Le Hay and Ferriol's famous work depicting the costume of the Levant: this copy bound in 18th century red morocco. The plates are based on paintings in the collection of the Marquis de Ferriol. In 1707, Ferriol commissioned Jean Baptiste van Mour to paint one hundred pictures of different officials and races in their costumes: the chief eunuch; a Turkish man cutting himself to show his love for his mistress; a Jewish woman taking goods to Turkish harems; a Greek bride; a Turkish women at leisure; Albanians, Bulgarians, Greeks, Persians and Arabs. When the paintings were complete, Ferriol helped le Hay to publish the present engravings of the pictures. Le Hay's work was an instant success and the plates quickly became the principal source of turqueries for artists and publishers throughout Europe. In recognition of van Mour's talents, he was granted the unique post of `Peintre ordinaire du Roi en Levant' in 1725.

Quarto. Contemporary tooled calf. Calf moderately worn; covers bowed. Early ink scribblings and numerical notations on the endpapers. Minor dampstaining toward the rear. Printed ownership label affixed to front pastedown. Overall very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. The earliest obtainable version of the Massachusetts-Bay colony laws, since the 17th- century versions are virtually unobtainable today. Second issue, with the reprinting notice on the verso of the titlepage, with the CHARTER... preceding the ACTS... and the second edition of THE TABLE containing pagination through 1721 (also bound in prior to the ACTS... titlepage). All of the session laws which followed through 1723 are present (they are continuously paginated, although issued periodically). This version of the laws would have been made obsolete by the 1726 version of the laws, when the session law numbering would have begun all over again. A nice early colonial legal volume, in contemporary condition. EVANS 1686, 1750-1752, 1815, 1816, 1891, 1892, 1966-1968, 2031, 2032, 2130, 2131, 2233- 2237, 2347-2348, 2442-2444.

      1714. Very Good. ROWE, N[icholas]. THE TRAGEDY OF JANE SHORE. Written in imitation of Shakespear's style. London: Printed for Bernard Lintott ..., 1714. First edition, with the following readings on p. 18, line 3: "the heart" and on p. 19, line 17: "This trickling Show'r of Teats,"and the publisher's notice on last page dated January 28, 1713-14. Small quarto. A-I4. 21.5 x 16.5 cm. [8],63,[1] pp. Bound in Roxburghe style brown quarter morocco with brown linen sides that shows slight shelfwear. Early ink ownership (`Mr Wilkson his book') p. 13. Bookplate of Edgar F. Leo at front pastedown. The first three leaves and the final three leaves are browned and soiled; otherwise the text is clean but for an occasional bit of light foxing and/or soiling. The final leaf has been repaired along the inside edge and has a small lacuna. Very good overall. Jane Shore was real person. She was a famous London beauty of humble origins, who, after her marriage to William Shore, a mercer, was annulled, became notorious as the mistress of Edward IV and others. She was charged with conspiracy against the protectionist government of Richard III and imprisoned at Ludgate, but only after having performed mandatory public penance for her promiscuous behavior. 'Mistress Shore' is mentioned only a few times in Shakespeare's Richard III as King Edwards's whore, Lord Hasting's whore, just about anyone's whore. But in Nicholas Rowe's `Tragedy of Jane Shore' - the story of a London wife seduced by one king, Edward IV, and harshly punished by another, Richard III - she is a suffering and penitent victim. Sarah Siddons was famous in the role. Beside being the author of lachrymose 'She-Tragedies' such as `Jane Shore,' `The Fair Penitent,' and `Lady Jane Grey,' Rowe did useful work as editor of Shakespeare's plays. He was the first to prefix a list of dramatis persona to each play, to divide and number acts and scenes on rational principles, and to mark the entrances and exits of the characters. In addition, he corrected and modernized spelling, punctuation, and grammar. His octavo edition of Shakespeare's collected works (1709) was also a first: previous to

      London: Printed by William Pearson, for S. H. and sold by John Young 1714 - Second editions, formerly belonging to the composer William Horsley (1774–1858), one of the founders of the Philharmonic Society, a friend of Callcott and Mendelssohn, and ‘one of the most elegant, learned and artistic of all the excellent glee composers our country has produced’ (Baptie, Sketches of the English Glee Composers, p. 82). Purcell edited the two books when they first appeared, published by Playford in 1688 and 1693, with music by himself, Blow, Pelham Humfrey, Matthew Locke, Jeremiah Clarke etc. setting texts by Cowley, Donne, Herbert, Thomas Flatman, William Fuller, Jeremy Taylor, Nahum Tate, and Sir Thomas Dereham.

        Mr. Steele Detected: or, the Poor and Oppressed Orphan’s Letters to the Great and Arbitrary Mr. Steele; Complaining of the Great Injustice done, to the Publick in General, and to Himself in Particular, by the Ladies Library; Publish’d by Mr. Steele.

      Together with Mr Steele’s Answers; and some just Reflections on them London: Printed for John Morphew: First edition 1714 - 8vo., 21 (3) pp., small neat closed tear to extreme top right-hand corner of title-page, some light occasional staining, some fore-edges untrimmed as usual, bound in later quarter morocco backed boards, slighty chipped at top of spine with some light rubbing. A generally VG copy of this rare work. The ESTC collation for this pamphlet does not call for a frontispiece, but some of the fifteen copies recorded to report a plate. The frontispiece would infact appear to be a reproduction of the 17th century engraved title-page for Taylor's Holy Living; the relevance of this image was no doubt not immediately obvious to early binders, and the plate was therefore discarded. A remarkable squabble over copyright, by the grandson of the bookseller Richard Royston , and the son of Royston's successor Luke Meredith. Earlier in the year the Richard Steele had published, through Jacob Tonson, a compilation called The Ladies Library; the text had been edited for Steele by Bishop Berkeley. "The work is a sort of mixed grill, improvingly arranged, of extracts from seventeenth-century divines, with large chunks from [Jeremy] Taylor, and predominantly from Holy Living. Royston Meredith, who was evidently Royston's, and co-heir with his sister Elizabeth Meredith, complained that he was being robbed of his literary property (other works originally published by Royston, besides those by Taylor, were rifled to fill The Ladies Library); he wrote to Steele and accused him of theft from 'two poor orphans who had very little else to subsist on.' The orphans were presumably himself and his sister. Later he threatened proceedings on account of his rights in Taylor's works. Steele retorted with his intention to do 'all the good offices I can to the reverend author's grandchild now in town.' Meredith beleived this to be, on Steele's part merely 'a blind excuse for his notorious plagiarisms.'" - Gathorne-Hardy and Williams, A Bibliography of the notorious plagiarisms; Gathorne-Hardy and Williams, A Bibliography of the Writings of Jeremy Taylor, p.36. For the exchange of letters between Meredith and Steele (for which there is no manuscript source), see The Correspondence of Richard Steele (edited by Blanchard), pages 97-100.

      Rarissima mappa tratta dal "Nouveau Petit Atlas - Atlas soluagé de son gros pesant Fardeau" stampato a Leida, circa 1714. L?atlante è incredibilmente raro e solo una copia completa è conosciuta nella biblioteca di Leida, mentre Burden possiede solo il primo volume. L'atlante è composto di nove parti: una parte generale denominata "Nouveau Petit Atlas" e 8 parti con mappe di una certa regione ogni intitolato "Atlas Soulage de son gros e pesant Fardeau". Quasi tutte le mappe vengono stampate utilizzando e rielaborando le lastre di Janssonius per il suo "Atlas Minor", atlante di ispirazione mercatoriana che prima Hondius poi Janssonius ampliarono e aggiornarono. I titoli e la scala sono stati tradotti in francese. I cartigli sono stati modernizzati, con una forma tonda od ovale composta e delle rose dei venti aggiunte. Alcuni toponimi sono aggiunti, come si nota dalla diversa grafia incisa. Le carte dell?Italia che proponiamo provengono dall?ottava ed ultima parte dell?atlante, denominata ?L?Atlas Soulagé de son gros & pesant fardeu: Ou NOUVELLES CARTES GEOGRAPHIQUES qui contiennent l?ITALIE, avec le Paryies principales qui la composent comme l?Etat del L?eglise, Naples, Sicile, &c. Ouvage propre pour Vouager commodement & agréablement des Yeux?. Lastra di rame con colore coevo, picoclo restauro al margine sinistro, per il resto in perfette condizioni. Grandissima rarità cartografica. A very rare map taken from the "Nouveau Petit Atlas - Atlas soluagé de son gros pesant fardeau" printed in Leiden circa 1714. The atlas is very rare and only one complete copy is known in the library of Leiden, while Burden old only the first volume. The atlas is composed of nine parts: a general part "Nouveau Petit Atlas" and 8 parts with maps of a certain region each titled "Atlas soulagé de son gros & pesant fardeau". Almost all maps are printed from reworked plates of Janssonius's "Atlas Minor". The titles and scale were translated into French. The cartouches have been modernized and windrose added.

Nicolas Barat évoque les auteurs grecs (Aristote, Porphyre, Pythagore, Sextus Empiricus...), latins (Cicéron, Sénèque, Virgile), des Pères de l'Eglise (Eusèbe de Césarée, Origène...), et de nombreux théologiens, humanistes ou savants (Erasme, les Estienne, Pic de la Mirandole, Saumaise, Turnèbe, Vivès, Basnage, Athanase Kircher, Pococke, David Blondel, Richard Simon - dont Barat fut l'élève...) ou des recensions plus étonnantes, comme celle du premier Coran imprimé en Arabe ("le premier Alcoran que nous avons vû en Arabe a été imprimé in 4° à Hambourg en 1694"). D'une manière générale, on relève l'intérêt soutenu et compréhensible de l'orientaliste Nicolas Barat pour les études de savants arabisants ou hébraïsants (Kircher, Pococke).

A rare and important work. The author's contributions to cardiology were of great importance. "By injecting mercury into various vessels and internal organs, of living animals and fresh human cadavers, Vieussens was able to trace the exact course of the blood's flow in differents parts of the body. He confirmed the hypothesis that there is a continuous vascular pathway between the arterial and venous vessels. In cardiac pathology, he was the first to describe mitral stenosis and aortic insufficiency on the basis of both clinical and anatomicopathological observation. Vieussens had already noted that disease of the aorta manifests itself by a characteristic pulse, which was rediscovered a century later by D. J. Corrigan, whose name it now bears" (DSB, XIV, 26) Français

      Frankfurt, heirs of Johann David Zunner and Johann Adam Jungen, 1714. 3 volumes in two. Folio (375 x 240mm). pp. [28, including engraved title-page], 520, [4], 76, [4], 119, [1]; pp. [24, including engraved title-page], 196, 116; pp. [viii], 228 [recte 236], [24], with two engraved titles, 95 engraved plates of which many double-page, 287 engravings and 5 woodcuts in text; an outstanding copy, in contemporary German blindstamped vellum over boards, spines in 5 compartments, gilt lettering. First complete edition (comprising the second issue of vol I (first 1704) and the first editions of vols II and III), special thick-paper copy, of Valentini?s ?Museum of museums?, a comprehensive survey of European Wunder- kunst- und Schatzkammern. This work is normally found printed on poor paper, often browned. The present copy is on a much heavier and whiter paper, and the whole volume, contents and binding, is exceptionally fine. ?Valentini was the personal physician to the Margrave of Assia and professor of experimental science and medicine at Giessen. His 'Museum Museorum' is the single most valuable contribution to Wunderkammer studies as it reprints many early collection catalogues [many of which are completely unobtainable now] and gives a list of all the museums known to exist at the time (some 159). Valentini also includes a catalogue of his own cabinet at Giessen and illustrates the interior of the Royal Library and Raritäten-Kammer at Vienna and an unusual view of the bear pit (with an elaborate fountain, tree houses and spectators leaning over the enclosure) at the Dresden Zoo. The first volume deals with plants, animals, minerals and metals, their properties and commercial and medical use. The second volume covers stones, fossils, coins, tropical plants, shells, unicorns and monstrosities. Several plates give an early attempt at the reconstruction of fossils skeletons [including a unicorn]. A separate appendix, Ost Indianische Send-Schreiben, is a compilation from Rumph, Kaempfer, Ten Rhyn and others on the rarities, mostly botanical, of the East Indies. The third volume is devoted to experiments in physics and natural philosophy with fine illustrations of the apparatus, and concluding with a dissertation on the divining rod. ?The catalogues printed by Valentini are for the Royal Museum at Vienna, Treasury of the Abbey of St. Denis and the Anatomy Cabinet at St. Victoire, the Royal Museums at Copenhagen and Dresden, the Hesse-Cassel Museum, the Treasury of Loretto, relics in the Liebfraun Kirche at Aachen, the Royal Society, the Anatomy Theatres at Leyden and Amsterdam and the Garden Gallery at Leyden, Apothecary Petiver?s cabinet, the museums of Tobias Reymer of Lüneberg, C.M. Spener of Berlin, Lorentz von Aldershelm of Leipzig, the fossils of J.G. Kisner of Frankfurt, Gottfried Nicolai of Wittenberg, J.C. Ratzel of Halberstadt, the Museum Brackenhofferianum, Professor Weigel of Jena?s astronomical instruments, J.D. Major?s Kunstkammer and the cabinet of an unnamed collector which was for sale?

        Dissertatio de generatione fungorum ad illustrissimum & reverendissimum praesulem Ioannem Mariam Lancisium....

      Romae, F. Gonzagae, 1714. Folio (375 x 250mm). pp. 40, with engraved title vignette and 31 engraved plates; pp. xlvii, (6), with a folding engraved map. Contemporary vellum. A fine copy of this beautifully produced early work on fungi. Lancisi's commentaries are titled; 'Dissertatio epistolaris de ortu, vegetatione, ac textura Fungorum..' & 'Physiologicae animadversiones in Plinianam Villam nuper in Laurentino detectam...' "Earlier views on the origin of fungi were still, however prevalent. Particularly that elaborated by Luigi Fernando Marsigli (who after retiring from a military career had, about 1710 founded the Institute of Bologna for the advancement of science) and set out at length in "Dissertio de generatio fungorum, 1714". This was supplemented by a commentary by the famous epidemiologist and physician to several popes, Giovanni Maria Lancisi (to whom the dissertation is dedicated), who supported Marsigli's view that fungi are product of corruption, mycelium being the intermediate state between corruption and the fungal fruit-body" (Ainsworth p. 17).

        Bishop Brunet's History of his Own Time. Volume I: From the Restoration of King Charles II to the Settlement of King William and Queen Mary at the Revolution. Volume II: From the Revolution to the Conclusion of the Treaty of Peace at Utrecht, in the Reign

      London: [Vol. 1:] Printed for Thomas Ward?1714; [Vol. II:] Printed for the Editor, by Joseph Downing?and Henry Woodfall, 1734 First edition. Contemporary paneled calf. As the two volumes were issued ten years apart, the design of the paneling is slightly different in each volume. Volume I is also slightly larger than Volume II. The bindings, however, are complimentary. . Two volumes, folio. List of subscribers in each volume. The verso of the title-page in Volume II bears an ink notation: "The Original Manuscript of both Volumes of this History will be deposited in the Cotton Library by G. Burnett [sic]." Joints cracking or starting to crack, but cords sound. Some scuffing and corner bumps. However, a very good, attractive set. Volume I with the armorial bookplate of Sir Richard Bedingfeld. Bishop Burnet (1643-1715) was a Scottish theologian and historian, educated at the University of Aberdeen. He was associated with the Whig party. His History of his Own Time or "secret history," as he called it, begins in 1683. He worked on it steadily until May, 1685, when he left England for the safety of the continent. He appears to have kept a running account of events in England during the reign of James II from The Hague, where he spent much of his exile. He returned to England after the revolution of 1688, when William and Mary took the throne. He worked on it intermittently from 1691 through 1703. In 1703, having read and admired Jacques-Auguste De Thou's Historia sui temporis, he decided to recast his history, making it less autobiographical and more impartial. He completed his recasting in 1704, and in 1705 resumed his History from when he left off. He worked on it until 1713 and spent the last two years of his life revising the final portions.Though it proved immediately controversial, Burnet's work remains an important sources for the period it deals with, and is admired for its detailed accounts of many events, and for Burnet's attempts to be accurate and fair.
