Early folds and early stab holes in left margin, 5-inch lower portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Some toning in upper margin and very light foxing. Very good. In the early 1710s noted mathematicians and friends William Whiston and Humphrey Ditton conducted a historic conversation over the problem of longitude, the means of figuring which had continued to elude sailors and cartographers well into the age of navigation. Whiston, Isaac Newton's successor as Lucasian Professor at Cambridge, mentioned to Ditton that he had been able to hear the guns fired at the Battle of Beachy Head from Cambridge, some ninety miles away. Ditton seized upon the idea of the constant speed of sound as a solution to the longitude problem: firing cannons from fixed points at specified times could allow people within hearing distance to calculate their longitude based on the amount of time it took for the sound to reach them. After seeing the fireworks celebrating the Peace of Utrecht on July 7, 1713, Whiston added the element of light to the proposal, which he and Ditton had since learned was insufficient due to the unreliability of sound travel at sea. By firing a shell from a fixed location timed to explode at 6,440 feet, recorders on distant ships could time the delay between the fireball and the bang and plot their longitude accordingly. An entire fleet of signal boats, Ditton and Whiston imagined, could be anchored at r … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Pickworth, Henry]:
[London. 1714].. Broadsheet, 14 x 9 inches. [1]p., plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Some foxing. Very good. Henry Pickworth (1673?-1738?) was an English Quaker who, in 1701, challenged the Quaker apostate Francis Bugg to visit New Sleaford, Lincolnshire, and debate him at a public conference. Bugg accepted and prevailed before the judges and clergymen assembled, which led to the public burning of two Quaker books and the publication of numerous pamphlets attacking Bugg by Pickworth. As the controversy died down, however, Pickworth was won over by Bugg and soon began writing against the Quakers and attending the annual Friends' meeting in London to present his protests and testimonies. Eventually, in June 1714, the Lincoln quarterly meeting disowned him. In this rare and historically noted petition, Pickworth lobbies Parliament to grant him another public conference in Lincolnshire, this time against the Quakers of his home meeting. He asks that members of the Lincoln meeting be convened "to one against me, in order to their Defences, from the Charges of Error, Heresy, Uncharity, Falshood, Evasion, Inconsistency, Innovation, Imposition, Infidelity, Hypocrisy, Pride, Railery, Apostasy, Perjury, Idolatry, villainy, Blasphemy, Abomination, Confusion, and worse than Turkish Tyranny in their Church Capacity." He was denied and subsequently issued a book with a title based on the series of invectives above (itself printed earlier in a half-sheet Pickworth published … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Paper]:
[London. 1714].. Small folio broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Ornamental initial. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Trimmed close, with slight loss to the first line of caption title and docket title, minor foxing; overall very good. A scarce petitionary leaflet published on behalf of the English paper making industry. The authors argue that a recent duty on cards has "hindered the Consumption of many thousand Reams of Paper," harming the livelihoods of the approximately 40,000 poor who are maintained by the gathering of rags used to make the paper. A proposed bill adding duties to printed books, they argue, will further exacerbate the problem. The document is among the earliest examples of commercial lobbying literature, which first began proliferating during the major changes in British government in the mid- 1710s.

An early British petitionary leaflet calling for greater enforcement of customs laws for imported goods. The author charges that most consignments of foreign goods are now being made to "Naturalized Foreigners and Unfreemen," who are not under the same obligations as Freemen, who state in their oath "not to Colour of Cover the Goods of Aliens." If "no Remedey be given," it is argued, "all Persons will be discouraged from taking their Freedoms, and few will be left of Substance to perform the necessary Service in the Government of [London]."

Occasional pale brown flecks, not significantly affecting the plates. 138 (27 large, 111 half-page) etchings by Francis Barlow. First French Edition. Like the second English edition of 1687, this one combines the "Aesop" plates of the 1666 edition with the "Life of Aesop" plates engraved by Thomas Dudley after Francis Barlow's designs. Barlow was one of the first great English book illustrators. "...he is the first English artist to understand and practice modern interpretive illustration...He made his most significant personal contribution in so drawing and organizing his charcaters that they interact in a dynamic, expressive, and appropriate dramatic way that is at the heart of interpretive illustrations. Barlow's Aesop's fables is one of the chief English illustrated books...that makes him the father of English book illustration,: Hodnett, Francis Barlow. The English editions of Barlow's famous Aesop had a polglott text but Roger used L'Estrange's English text, translated by Roger into French. DG 2.1663. Bodemann 101. Brunet I,96. Cohen/Ricci 350.

Lehenherr, David (Maler) & Fridrich, Iacob Andreas (Stecher).
Augsburg. 1714. J.M.Roth - Augsburgisches Friedens - Gedächtnüs Die „ Augsburger Friedensgemälde „ sind jährlich erscheinende Einblattdrucke mit erläuterndem Text, die an den Westfälischen Frieden von 1648 erinnern sollten. Die Initiative dazu ist von der evangelischen Barfüßergemeinde ausgegangen. Zwischen 1651 und 1789 erschienen insgesamt 138 Blätter mit Kupferstichen unter Beteiligung von 55 Künstlern als Zeichner und Kupferstecher; allein für das Jahr 1653 ist kein Kupferstich, sondern nur ein Gebet gedruckt worden. „ Die Reihe ist somit ein Musterbuch der Augsburger Künstler dieser Zeit". Die Druckplatten wurden von der Barfüßer-Pfarrei aufbewahrt; es folgten immer wieder Nachdrucke, die in Sammelbänden mit eigenem Titel und einer Einführung verlegt wurden. Nach der Herausgabe im Jubiläumsjahr 1748 folgten bis 1789 noch 41 Jahrgänge. Sämtliche Jahrgänge wurden 1790 ein letztes Mal mit neuem Titel versehen herausgegeben. Lit.: Seitz, Augsburg. Anhand der großen Auswahl der gezeigten Blätter, an der teils bedeutende Stecher und Zeichner der Augsburger Schule beteiligt waren, lässt sich die Stielentwicklung des Augsburger Kupferstichs vom Hoch- über den Spätbarock bis zum Rokoko ( etwa ab 1740 ) verfolgen; die letzten Stiche zeigen sogar frühklassizischtischen Stil. - In leuchtenden Farben kolorierter Kupferstich. Sprache: Deutsch Kolorierter Kupferstich. 50 x 30 cm. mit dem Text.

[Massachusetts Laws]:
Boston: Printed by B. Green for Benjamin Eliot, 1714-1723.. [2],392pp. [bound with:] THE CHARTER GRANTED BY THEIR MAJESTIES KING WILLIAM AND QUEEN MARY, TO THE INHABITANTS OF THE PROVINCE OF THE MASSACHUSETTS-BAY IN NEW-ENGLAND; THE TABLE [i.e. the index to ACTS...]; and twenty-four consecutive printings of session laws through 1723. 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.
