London: W. Bowyer for Bernard Lintott, 1715. The Iliad of Homer, Translated by Mr. Pope, printed by W. Bowyer, for Bernard Lintott between the Temple-Gates, London, 1715, six volumes, illustrated, full leather, large 4tos. In fair condition. Boards are detached on 2-6 volumes. Ex-library of the 10th Earl of Derby with his royal insignia pasted on rear side of title page. Boards are in relatively typical shape for being over 300 years old. They show typical wear and bumped corners. They can be repaired if need be. Text blocks are in beautiful condition with very little wear. Gilt work still bright on spines with raised bands and original red morocco labels. A very solid, readable set. Please see photos. Alexander Pope's monumental translation of Homer's Iliad, first edition. Uniformly bounds in contemporary calf, gilt tooling to the spine with red morocco labels. For the Odyssey, Pope was assisted by Elijah Fenton and William Broome. Pope began translating Homer in 1713. The arduous undertaking would prove to be the most laborious literary enterprise of his life, but one to which he was well-suited. "Idolatry of classical models was an essential pal part of religion of men of letters of the day, but Homer in modern English was still wanting. Popes rising fame and his familiarity with the literary and social leaders made him the man for the opportunity. The Homer was long regarded as a masterpiece, and for a century was the source from, which clever schoolboys like Byron learnt Homer was not a mere instrument of torture invented by their masters.

Contemporary sheepskin parchment. Recased in the original boards with new endpapers. [475], [1 blank] pp. Manuscript bookkeeping journal of the Cosmas and Damianus guild (the guild of surgeons, doctors and apothecaries) of the city of Brielle, near Rotterdam, begun in the year 1715 and continued to 1783. The guild's patron saints were the physicians Saints Cosmas and Damian, twin brothers martyred in Syria. Under each year the journal generally records the names of the guild officials, city burgermasters and masters in the guild, and records payments received from them, then payments received from quacks, medicine pedlars and others, then payments made for provisions, couriers, etc., then notes of various kinds, including transcripts of city resolutions related to the guild. It records payments for articles of apprenticeship, registration as a guild member, burials of family members, marriages, etc., as well as fines for absences from events or other transgressions. It also records some events that did not require payments, such as a member's death or departure for another city or for the East Indies. It therefore not only gives an extremely detailed picture of the guild's operations, but also an extensive record of the masters and apprentices, including genealogical and biographical information.Two pages that were stuck together and separated are slightly damaged and discoloured, but the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio (ca. 29 x 21 cm). 8 original drawings in black ink with ink washes plus 1 additional line drawing of a catafalque added about a decade later. Never bound, but formerly sewn. ll. 28-31, 34-37. Original ink and ink-wash drawings of 5 triumphal arches and 3 catafalques (elaborate funeral biers), plus an additional line drawing of a 4th catafalque on the back of one leaf, all erected at various locations in the city of Siena in Tuscany: in the cathedral, in the piazza before the cathedral, in Palazzo Piccolomini and at the Porta Santuccio. The drawings are richly decorated with sculptures, bas-reliefs, columns, cartouches, vases, candelabras and decorations, including Christian and classical figures and putti. The five triumphal arches were all erected for the occasion of the entry of Alessandro Zondadari (1670-1745), the new archbishop of Sienna on 11 August 1715. He was the fourth and last son of Ansano Zondadari and Agnese di Mario Chigi. She was a niece of Pope Alexander VII and heir of her brother Cardinal Flavio Chigi, one of the most influential and powerful men in Siena. One catafalque was erected for the funeral of Alessandro Zondadari's older brother Marc' Antonio Zondadari (1658-1722), Grand Master of the Sovereign Military and Hospitaller Order of Knights of St. John of Jerusalem and Malta.

Oblong folio (20 x 32 cm). With calligraphic title-page and 9 leaves with calligraphic specimens, all engraved by J. Cole and by Nutting. Disbound. [1], 9 ll. Wholly engraved English dictionary of calligraphic abbreviations of Latin words. It comprises 600 abbreviations in the court hand, with their significations written out in full in engrossing and secretary hands. The work was published by the writing master-master Thomas Ollyffe (fl. 1685- ca. 1725), who was an expert in these hands used at court. The gothic court hand is difficult to read, so that the book remains a valuable aid for anyone studying documents in that hand.

A set of 96 letters from 20 Dutch diplomats throughout Europe, 52 in the year 1715 and 44 in the years 1725 to 1729, in copies made by the Dutch government as the letters came in. They give a remarkably detailed view of day to day activities in international diplomacy and local current events, forming a valuable primary source for any study of the period. A 1715 report from Turin gives information on troops in Malta, an 1728 report from Moscow ranges from the future Empress of Russia's pilgrimage on foot to a General setting off for Siberia to oversee the copper and iron mines, a 1729 report from Warsaw notes that they are warily keeping an eye on the Ottoman Porte in Constantinople. More than half the letters date from the year 1715, giving an extraordinary view of Europe in the aftermath of the War of the Spanish Succession, in the year of Louis XIV's death and during the Ot … [Click Below for Full Description]

[DRAWING - ORNITHOLOGY].
[Great bustard (Otis tarda)].[Northwest Germany?, ca. 1710/20]. Watercolour drawing on 2½ sheets of Imperial laid paper (129 x 57 cm as assembled). A life-size watercolour drawing of a Great bustard (Otis tarda) cock, hanging from a hook by a cord threaded through its nostrils, presumably awaiting the cook's assistants, who would have plucked it. The skilful artist remains unidentified. The drawing itself, from the hook (which bleeds off the paper at the head) to the tips of the claws, measures 126 cm and the bustard itself measures 110 cm from the tip of its beak to the tip of its tail. Its plumage is predominantly light brown, with black stripes on the back and with the breast and the lower parts of the wings white. The hens were much smaller than the cocks, which are the heaviest flying birds in the world and the heaviest indigenous birds of any kind in Europe today. The drawing probably comes from the estate (the kitchen?) of a nobleman. The great bustard has become rare in northern Europe, with only a few hundred, largely confined to small parts of East Germany and western Poland, but there is still a larger population spread throughout Hungary. It is classified as vulnerable worldwide. In the early 18th century it had a much greater range, including much of Germany and England. In 1797 Thomas Bewick noted that it made "excellent eating ... as excellent a repast as our own domestic poultry, or even as the [American] turkey". He therefore lamented that it had not been domesticated and foresaw that hunting might lead to its "total extinction" in England.Formerly folded. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abbreviations as used in the courts of Kings Bench and Common Pleas[.] containing more than six hundred words properly abbreviated in the court hand[.] With their significations in words at length in the engrossing and secretary hands &c.London, Owen Lloyd, [ca. 1715]. Oblong folio (20 x 32 cm). With calligraphic title-page and 9 leaves with calligraphic specimens, all engraved by J. Cole and by Nutting. Disbound. [1], 9 ll. Wholly engraved English dictionary of calligraphic abbreviations of Latin words. It comprises 600 abbreviations in the court hand, with their significations written out in full in engrossing and secretary hands. The work was published by the writing master-master Thomas Ollyffe (fl. 1685- ca. 1725), who was an expert in these hands used at court. The gothic court hand is difficult to read, so that the book remains a valuable aid for anyone studying documents in that hand. Very good copy, upper margin slightly frayed and title-page a bit thumbed. ESTC T135970 (2 copies); Heal, English writing-masters, pp. 81-82; WorldCat (5 copies).

Cosmus en Damian[us] gild-boeck. ... 1715[-1783].Brielle, 1715-1783. 4to (20 x 16.5 cm). Manuscript bookkeeping journal in Dutch, written in several Latin hands in dark brown ink on paper. Contemporary sheepskin parchment. Recased in the original boards with new endpapers. [475], [1 blank] pp. Manuscript bookkeeping journal of the Cosmas and Damianus guild (the guild of surgeons, doctors and apothecaries) of the city of Brielle, near Rotterdam, begun in the year 1715 and continued to 1783. The guild's patron saints were the physicians Saints Cosmas and Damian, twin brothers martyred in Syria. Under each year the journal generally records the names of the guild officials, city burgermasters and masters in the guild, and records payments received from them, then payments received from quacks, medicine pedlars and others, then payments made for provisions, couriers, etc., then notes of various kinds, including transcripts of city resolutions related to the guild. It records payments for articles of apprenticeship, registration as a guild member, burials of family members, marriages, etc., as well as fines for absences from events or other transgressions. It also records some events that did not require payments, such as a member's death or departure for another city or for the East Indies. It therefore not only gives an extremely detailed picture of the guild's operations, but also an extensive record of the masters and apprentices, including genealogical and biographical information.Two pages that were stuck together and separated are slightly damaged and discoloured, but the … [Click Below for Full Description]

A set of 96 letters from 20 Dutch diplomats throughout Europe, 52 in the year 1715 and 44 in the years 1725 to 1729, in copies made by the Dutch government as the letters came in. They give a remarkably detailed view of day to day activities in international diplomacy and local current events, forming a valuable primary source for any study of the period. A 1715 report from Turin gives information on troops in Malta, an 1728 report from Moscow ranges from the future Empress of Russia's pilgrimage on foot to a General setting off for Siberia to oversee the copper and iron mines, a 1729 report from Warsaw notes that they are warily keeping an eye on the Ottoman Porte in Constantinople. More than half the letters date from the year 1715, giving an extraordinary view of Europe in the aftermath of the War of the Spanish Succession, in the year of Louis XIV's death and during the Ot … [Click Below for Full Description]

INSELIN, Charles.
Paris: Bernard Jaillot, 1715. Coloured. Two sheets conjoined, total 635 x 840mm. A large and impressive map of the British Isles, with the coastline of Europe from Brittany and the Channel Islands east to Norway and Denmark, with the seas marked with rhumb lines. Originally published by Inselin c.1713, this separate-issue map was originally openly dedicated to James III, the Old Pretender, James Francis Edward Stuart. Born the year his father, James II, was forced into exile, he styled himself James III after his father's death in 1701. However for this edition of 1715 (the year of the First Jacobite Rebellion in Scotland, and the earliest state of the map that Shirley records) he had the dedication changed to the more neutral one used here, despite continued French support for the Stuart claim to the throne. The association of this map with the Jacobite cause continued: the next known reissue of the map was in 1745, the year of the Second Jacobite Rebellion, when French troops massed at Dunkirk ready to invade Essex in support and money and guns were sent to Scotland. A final edition was published in 1793, after the Jacobite movement was ended with the death of Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1788, when France was intending to invade Britain as part of the French Revolutionary Wars.

With full-page engraved frontispiece by D. Coster of an author in his library, seated at his writing desk, his feet warmed by furs, behind him a great wall clock, and beyond the balcony a scene of great combat. Additionally there is a full-page engraving preceding the "Bibliotheca Mundiana." Collation: *7 A-O12 P4 (lacking half-title which is also lacking in the British Library copy). Eighteenth-century Spanish mottled calf, single gilt fillet around sides, small floral vignette at the corners, mottled edges. Title and *3 with small paper repair at the fore-edge. Overall in good antiquarian condition. Clandestinely published by the key figure in the Scottish Dutch book trade in the early 18th century. No copy in America; two copies located in the UK (none in Scotland). At the end of this fairly routine vade-mecum is an intriguing and little-known 52-page catalogue of "best books" for the cultured ambassador, diplomat, and man-of-the-world, entitled: "Bibliotheca Mundiana, ou Catalogue des livres de la bibliotheque de l'homme du monde" which has a special title-page and its own engraved frontispiece. Whereas the imprint is fictitious, it is certain that the present volume was published -- and probably compiled -- by Thomas Johnson (c. 1677-1735), a Scotsman who was active as a bookseller in The Hague from 1701 to 1728, and then to Rotterdam until his death.

Très rare manuel manuscrit de tracé de lettres typographiques à la règle et au compas qui établit les modèles géométriques des "Romains du Roi" (Le Grandjean), premiers caractères basés sur une construction géométrique gravés entre 1694 et 1714, inspirés par les travaux de la Commission Billon qui a tenté une théorisation mathématique et géométrique de la typographie. Précédé des Règles des Proportions des Lettres Capitales, l'alphabet manuscrit en coloris d'époque se compose de 26 lettres capitales droites dont chaque spécimen colorié en jaune est inscrit dans un carré "réduit" de 56 cases tracé en pointillés rouges (78 mm de côté) avec les points de construction marqués ; chaque schéma est suivi d'un court texte explicatif. « La modélisation des contours des caractères d'imprimerie par le compas et la règle remonte à la Renaissance avec notamment Pacioli en Italie, Dürer en Allemagne et Tory en France ; elle a été reprise sous Louis XIV par l'abbé Sébastien Truchet (Lyon 1657-1729), à qui on doit aussi le concept de point typographique. Suite aux travaux de trois membres de la Commission Billon (1692) Truchet, Jaugeon et Des Billettes, visant à doter Louis XIV d'une typographie d'État, un alphabet fut établi, le Romain du Roi, premier caractère basé sur une construction géométrique.

Ruddiman was a Jacobite who disagreed in his introduction with Buchanan's opposition to hereditary monarchy (though Buchanan had been tutor to King James VI), and this naturally caused some controversy, including the proposal of a counter-edition which never saw the light of day, though it did influence a Dutch edition which followed ten years later.

MORE, Thomas
Leide: Pierre Vander Aa, 1715. 1715 Thomas More UTOPIA 1st Gueudeville ed Socialism Communism Utopian Politics"[how can anyone] be silly enough to think himself better than other people"― Thomas More, 'Utopia'This famous book by Thomas More, 'Utopia,' depicts a fictional island society with its own social, religious, and political customs. First published in 1516, many 16th-century critics were curious and confused at the reason More wrote the work. Many aspects of 'Utopia'describe life in a monastery, yet still, More seems to be criticizing European society - which he considered to have many problems. More, a devout Catholic, writes of controversial topics which those on the island of Utopia practiced such as divorce, euthanasia, married priests, and female priests. These practices were widely opposed within the Catholic faith, but More cites them as commonplace in his writing. 'Utopia'is even polarizing in terms of modern politics. It seems to have been influential to Anabaptists, communism, and social Marxism. Though, 'the answer implied by "Utopia" was that political realities must be changed in order to free men." "More was claiming that community pressure could be made to correspond to and to endorse conscience and the way to achieve this was through institutional and legal regulation, supervision and control...the environment of the monastery." (Davis, 57-58).An incredibly rare first edition printing of Nicolas Gueudeville's translation of Thomas More's 'Utopia.' - Includes expected first issue points, see below.Item number: #10647Price: $950MORE, ThomasL'Utopie de T … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: John Baskett, Printer to the Kings Most Excellent Majesty, 1715. Rare 17th century Book of Common Prayer bound with the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible and Book of Psalms. Octavo, bound in full contemporary morocco, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. In very good condition. A nice example. The Book of Common Prayer was created out of English Reformation leader Thomas Cranmer's desire for a liturgical text that all of Europe's Protestant, English-speaking churches could agree on. The Book of Common Prayer was first issued in 1549 during the reign of Edward VI and revised through the reign of Mary I, James II, and ending significantly in 1832. The original book, published in 1549 in the reign of Edward VI, was the first prayer book to include the complete forms of service for daily and Sunday worship in English. Its magisterial liturgical language is, "as a source of spiritual inspiration for most Englishmen second only to the Bible" (PMM 75). [Attributes: First Edition]

SYMSON William
1715. First edition. Engraved half-title, two engraved folding plates, and a double hemisphere world map. 12mo. Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked, sprinkled edges. A very handsome copy. [viii], 340, [11 index], [1]pp. London, Printed by H. Meere for A. Bettesworth, An exceptional copy of a famous plagiarism, which was one of Swift?s inspirations for Gulliver?s travels. Though both Symson and his voyage were fictive, the book is nevertheless an early English-language source on Arabia, with descriptions of Muscat, Dhofar, Aden, Mocha and Jeddah. Picking truth from fiction was a hard task for eighteenth-century readers, as a lack of knowledge of non-European geography and unscrupulous publishers conspired to blur the lines between real travel accounts, imaginary voyages and fake narratives. A new voyage to the East-Indies? is of the last variety: an outright lie posing as a genuine account. Unlike some falsified works, which were often intentionally fantastical, A new voyage? contains a great deal of fairly accurate information; especially in those parts concerning Western India. This is because the main narrative ? covering the West coast of India, Oman, Yemen, the Red Sea and Southern Africa ? plagiarises John Ovington?s A Voyage to Suratt? (London, 1696), which was chiefly based on his time as an East India Company chaplain. Only a few sections of that work, such as those on the court of the Great Mogul and the Arabian Peninsula, were gleaned from other sources (see Donald F. Lach & Edwin J. Van Kley, Asia in the Making of Europe. (Chicago, 1998), vol.III, p.579). The Ar … [Click Below for Full Description]

FER (Nicolas de) & LA HIRE (Philippe de).
Paris, Danet, [circa 1715]. Deux feuilles, chacune de 470 x 464 mm. Superbes cartes célestes des hémisphères boréal et austral, dressées par l'astronome Philippe de La Hire et publiées par Nicolas de Fer. Elles ont été gravées par Herman van Loon, et sont dédiées à l'abbé Jean-Paul Bignon, bibliothécaire du roi Louis XIV. En 1702, Philippe de La Hire fit graver deux planisphères de 16 pouces de diamètre, sur les dessins qu'il en avait faits. Les positions principales furent déterminées par ses propres observations. Les étoiles sont dérivées du catalogue d'étoiles de Johann Bayer, intitulé Uranometria, édité à Augsbourg en 1603. L'atlas de Bayer fut le premier atlas couvrant entièrement la sphère céleste. Les deux cartes sont accompagnées d'un texte et d'une légende des symboles utilisés pour la grandeur et figure des étoiles, et ornées d'une lettrine et des armoiries du dédicataire, Jean-Paul Bignon. Nicolas de Fer fut un géographe, graveur et éditeur français, ayant produit près de 600 cartes, très recherchées pour leur qualité décorative. Bel exemplaire. Très légères traces de pliures, petites rousseurs sur le planisphère méridional. Pastoureau, FER II ; Kanas, Star Maps, pp. 216-217.
