      1715. Decorativa a affascinante tavola araldica contenuta nel V volume dell'Atlas Historique, pubblicato ad Amsterdam tra il 1705 e il 1720. Il folio mostra i blasoni nobiliari di diversi paesi, mentre in basso sono riportati corone regali, copricapi ecclesiastici ed elmi cavallereschi. L'atlante, in 7 volumi, è innovativo per la sua epoca perché combina le mappe geografiche con incisioni e informazioni di carattere geografico, storico, etnografico e araldico. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Molto decorativa. Attractive and interesting heraldic plate from the fifth volume of 'Atlas Historique...'

The atlas was published in seven volumes between 1705 and 1720, with a second edition appearing in 1732. The maps were accompanied by information pertaining to cosmography, geography, history, chronology, genealogy, topography, heraldry, and costumes of the world. The maps in the Atlas Historique were mainly based on those of the French cartographer, Guillaume De L'Isle, but were presented by the Chatelains in an encyclopaedic form. Copper etching, finely hand coloured, in very good condition. Amsterdam Amsterdam 610 500

        A Second Tale of a Tub: or, The History of Robert Powel the Puppet-Show-Man

      Printed for J. Roberts near the Oxford Arms in Warwick-Lane,, London 1715 - 8vo: [2],219,[5]pp, with frontispiece and imprimatur leaf. Variant with price 3s/6d on title page. Period calf ruled in blind, rebacked to style, red morocco lettering piece gilt, end papers renewed. From the library of bibliophile Hugh Selbourne, M.D. (1906-1973), with his discreet ownership stamp on two pages. (In an appreciation of Shelbourne's diaries, Hilary Mantle noted in The Guardian: "His passion is for antiquarian books, and he owns them by the yard; we are not talking about first editions of Dickens, but first editions of Erasmus, 'printed Basle, 1517'. His regular beat takes him to his private consulting rooms at St John Street in the centre of Manchester, then to Shaw's, the book dealer . . .".) A handsome copy, clean and sound, with several abrasions to boards, marginal toning to some leaves, occasional spots and soiling, inoffensive ink blot to p. 195 obscuring four or five letters but not affecting sense. ESTC Citation N22063. McBurney 79. Lowndes 325 (calling it a satire on Sir Robert Walpole, ascribed to Thomas Duffet). Wicked satire on statesman Robert Harley, Earl of Oxford (political power-broker and patron of Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, and Daniel Defoe), taking its title from Swift's celebrated Tale of a Tub (but not recorded by Teerink-Scouten in the list of spurious sequels to Swift's work). Probably written with the collaboration of George Duckett, it casts an account of Harley's life as an allegory of a Machiavellian scoundrel who betrays family and friends in his rise to power and practice of ruthless state craft. The vehicle for this allegory is Martin Powell (fl. 1709-29), the physically deformed showman who ran a celebrated puppet-show in Covent Garden (as shown in the frontispiece). The Tale portrays Harley as a puppet-master manipulating Swift and other hack writers in the service of the Tory faction. Though not a novel, per se, Second Tale of a Tub is seen by some as an important link between Swift's antecedent and Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy (Eugene Korkowskia, Studies in the Novel, Vol. 6, No. 4, pp. 470-474).

        Invitto a' religiosi contro dell'armi Ottomane. Ad' istanza di Gioseppe Madi detto il Musico Toscano.

      Venice & Bassano, Giovanni Antonio Remondini, [ca. 1715]. - 8vo. 8 pp. With woodcut device on title page. Wrappers. An appeal, written in verse, to all religious orders and Christian laymen to take arms against the Ottomans. Apparently an early product of the Turkish-Venetian War of 1714-18, in which the new Grand Vizier Silahdar Damat Ali Pasha re-conquered Morea (the Peloponnesus) from the Venetians, who had held the peninsula since 1699. A different version (kept at the Biblioteca Civica Bertoliana in Vicenza), published by Giovanni Berno "in Venetia, Bassano, & in Verona", is dated 1715; this date of publication is also supported by the mention of Pope Clement XI (1700-21). However, the Marciana in Venice keeps an earlier publication of the same work produced for the Venetian Alessandro Cortesi, bearing the date 1663. Yet another, undated version in the Biblioteca Universitaria di Padova bears the imprint "In Venezia, per Domenico Lovisa à Rialto". No other copy with Remondini's imprint is known. - Some browning and waterstaining; old pagination in manuscript and stamped (apparently removed from an old collection). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        SOME REASONS HUMBLY OFFERED, TO THE CONSIDERATIONS OF BOTH HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT, WHY THE QUAKERS AFFIRMATION SHOULD NOT PASS INSTEAD OF AN OATH [caption title].

      [London? ]. 1715 - 4pp. Printed in two columns Dbd. Small folio. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Some foxing. Very good. A rare and expansive appeal to Parliament against the 1715 bill to renew the Quakers' right to the "solemn affirmation" in place of the legal oath. In 1696, after experiencing decades of exclusion and imprisonment for conscientiously refusing to take loyalty and court oaths, Quakers were granted the right by an act of Parliament to take a "solemn affirmation" in legal situations in place of an actual oath. In 1715, a bill was under consideration in Parliament to renew that act indefinitely. Significantly longer than most lobbying documents from this time, this petition asks that Parliament only extend the act if the affirmation be made "of no Force where they are concern'd in Interest, but where they only Affirm as Witnesses between others, there being no Temptation for them to Lye, when it brings no Profit to them." Many Quakers by this time had achieved significant prosperity in manufacturing and commerce, adding fuel to their enemies' resentment. The author of this pamphlet charges various Friends with hypocrisy, greed, and swindling and reprints an earlier petition describing six widows of commanders of two "Guinea ships" allegedly defrauded by Quakers (including one Quaker from Maryland). Not listed in Joseph Smith's BIBLIOTECA ANTI- QUAKERIANA or A DESCRIPTIVE CATALOGUE OF FRIENDS' BOOKS. ESTC records only one copy, at Oxford.

        A report from the Committee of Secrecy, Appointed by Order of the House of Commons to examine Several Books and Papers laid before the House, relating to the late Negotiations of Peace and Commerce, &c. Reported on the Ninth of June, 1715...Together with an appendix, containing Memorials, Letters, and other Papers referred to in the said Report. Published by Order of the House of Commons

      London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, Timothy Goodwin, Bernard Lintott, and William Taylor, 1715. [4], 64, 94pp. With initial license leaf. Handsomely bound in contemporary panelled calf, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece, gilt, with elaborate gilt supra-libros of the arms of Thomas Coningsby to centre of each board. Slightly rubbed, some short cracks to joints, bumping to corners and some darkening to spine. Presumably from the library of Whig politician Thomas Coningsby (1657-1729), English politician and vociferous member of the very parliamentary inquiry into the conduct of British negotiations of which this volume is the detailed report. The signing of the 1713 Treaties of Utrecht ended the Wars of the Spanish succession; strengthened English territorial dominance in North America; and established greater trade links with native American tribal areas as well as the monopoly over the supply of slaves to the Spanish colonies in South and Central America. Nevertheless, the domestic political reaction led to this detailed and lengthy enquiry into the actions of the English negotiators, and most especially that of Matthew Prior, by a committee of leading Whigs.

An early lobbying leaflet petitioning Parliament to lift the duty on domestic green soap.

"The 'Praeludia botanica' is an important work because it offers the first illustrations of certain aloes and other plants" (Hunt p. 405). "Important because of the first description of a number of South African plants... Wijnands (1973) provides an example of the importance of the book for the typification of South African taxa" (Stafleu & Cowan). Caspar Commelin (1667/68- 1731) was professor of botany and director of the botanical garden of Amsterdam at a time that numerous South African plants were introduced through the Dutch East Indies Company and first grown in the Amsterdam 'Hortus Medicus'. He succeeded his uncle Jan Commelin.//Stafleu & Cowan 1185; Nissen BBI, 388; Kerkham, Southern African Botanical Literature, 159.

        Lezione accademica intorno all'origine delle fontane,

      colle Annotazioni per chiarezza maggiore della medesima. Venezia, Gio. Gabr. Hertz, 1715, - in-4, pp. (8), 87, leg. orig. cartoncino rustico, tit. ms. al dorso. Dedica a stampa dell'a. a Luigi Ferdinando Marsilli. Con una tavola inc. in rame ripieg. f.t. raffigurante le sezioni geologiche di alcune località montane. Prima edizione, seconda tiratura (cfr. Sabia M., Le opere di A. Vallisnieri, nn. 106 e 120: ''le principali e accreditate bibliografie di testi scientifici del Settecento confermano che la prima edizione originale dell'opera è stata stampata nel 1715.Ma in realtà il trattato vide la luce l'anno precedente, cioè nel 1714 e in seguito lo stampatore ha continuato l'impressione del volume, ma in seconda tiratura., identica alla precedente col solo cambio della data sul frontespizio''). Opera d'importanza straordinaria del grande medico e naturalista reggiano (1661-1730), vero e proprio classico della letteratura geologica, che contiene le prime osservazioni sulle sorgenti alpine; inoltre la bella tavola incisa costituisce sicuramente uno dei primi esempi di illustrazione stratigrafica moderna.

        THE MOST SAD AND DEPLORABLE CASE OF ROBERT BLACKBURNE, JOHN BERNARDI, ROBERT CASSILLS, ROBERT MELDRUM, AND JAMES CHAMBERS. HUMBLY PRESENTED TO THE PARLIAMENT OF GREAT BRITAIN [caption title].

      [London? ca. ]. 1715 - Broadsheet, 14 x 8 1/2 inches. [2]pp. With ornamental initial on recto and and 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. Mild foxing. Very good. A petition to Parliament to review the case of Robert Blackburne and others connected to the so-called "Lancashire Plot" who were imprisoned in London without charges, trial, or opportunity for habeas corpus. Robert Blackburne (d. 1748), a scion of prominent Roman Catholic families in Lancashire, and his companions were arrested in 1695 on suspicion of connection to an assassination plot against William III and held at Newgate prison, where "no person but our Jaylor and his Servants were permitted to speak with us. We were denied the Use of Pen, Ink, and Paper, debarred of all Comforts and Conveniences, and under great Hardships as to the very Necessaries of Life; out Confinement being so strict, that even our Food and Linnen were searched, to prevent the least Communication." When after many years of being held without trial they finally managed to enter a request for habeas corpus, their petition was denied because they had not claimed it during the first parliamentary session after their imprisonment. This, they note, had been impossible to do, as they had had no access to pen, paper, or friends beyond the prison walls. Around 1715, following the accession of King George I and the election of a new Whig Parliament, the prisoners learned of a new bill in Parliament which they hoped would at last secure their release. It apparently was never passed, and Robert Blackburne was never exonerated; he died after fifty-three years' imprisonment, never brought to trial. An early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons during the 1710s. Signed in print by Robert Blackburne, John Cassells, John Bernardi, Robert Meldrum, and J. Chambers. Rare, with ESTC recording only four copies, three in England and one at the Folger Library.

        THE CASE OF THE OFFICERS OF LIEUTENANT GENERAL HAMILTON'S LATE REGIMENT OF FOOT (SUBJECTS OF GREAT-BRITAIN) BROKE IN THE SERVICE OF THE STATES GENERAL OF THE UNITED PROVINCES [caption title]

      [London, 1715. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good. A petition to Parliament by the officers of Lieutenant General George Hamilton's Regiment of Foot, seeking pay due for services abroad in the War of Spanish Succession. Lord George Douglas-Hamilton (1666-1737), was a Scottish Williamite officer during the Glorious Revolution who later married William III's mistress, Elizabeth Villiers, became a confidant of William, was created Earl of Orkney in 1696, was appointed Governor of Virginia in 1714, and in 1736 was the first British general promoted to the rank of Field Marshal. In 1701, at the beginning of the War of the Spanish Succession, Hamilton led the First Regiment of Foot (the Royal Scots) to the Netherlands, where the regiment fought for the remainder of the war. Despite their long service and the high position of Hamilton, the officers suggest in the present petition that, having been so long overseas, they had been forgotten by the British government and charge that they had not received their pay, even after frequent petitions. The document is an early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC records four copies, two at the British Library, one at Oxford, and one at the National Library of Scotland.

A petition to Parliament on behalf of Thomas Hammond, "a considerable Trader for Twenty Years last past in Wines, and other Merchandises," asking for public assistance in paying the remainder of his debts to the government. During the War of the Spanish Succession, Hammond suffered major losses to his trade and merchandise, resulting from the sinking of the ships, Thomas and Elizabeth, near Virginia; the capture of other ships sailing to India, the failures of various merchants, vintners, and coopers to pay him; and other "Losses at Home and Abroad." Unable to pay his own debts, Hammond absconded, but he was caught, imprisoned, and stripped of all his assets. The present document relates this history, tabulating his losses and the amounts he had already paid to his creditors through assets and sureties, and petitions the House of Commons to pass a bill allowing the Treasury to forgive his debts due for customs. Part of the earliest British literature relating to decriminalized bankruptcy, following the historic bankruptcy statute of Queen Anne of 1705, which granted the first modern provisions for the release of insolvent debtors from their debts. This is also among the earliest examples of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC locates only two copies, at Harvard and the University of London. HANSON 2164.

        THE CASE OF THE WARRANT OFFICERS [caption title]

      [London, 1715. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Some foxing. Very good. A rare political leaflet petitioning Parliament for relief of warrant officers who had fought in the recent War of the Spanish Succession. In March 1715 the House of Commons ordered that a list of all the regimental and warrant officers be drawn up, but by the time this document was printed, numerous warrant officers had not been entered into the list and rumors had begun to circulate that they would therefore not be receiving expected compensation for their service. "Besides, the Nature of several of the Warrant Officers Posts was such, as they could not be put on a Regimental List, viz. Directors of Hospitals, Commissaries, Officers who have lost their Limbs, and many other Officers, whose particular Hardships, Pretensions, and Disappointments are more at large set forth and specify'd in their several Warrants. So that their Condition is very deplorable." This is among the earliest examples of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons at the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC lists only two copies, at Oxford and the University of Missouri. HANSON 2212.
