Bound in 19th century halfleatherbinding with coloured label on frontboard. Titlepage weakly foxes, text and plates mostly clean. * Jeremias Wolff was responsible for publishing this anonymous work, and quite possibly for editing its rext. The form and wording of the titlepage, the format of the whole, the heavy reliance on Nicolaus Goldmmann's manuscripts, and the signature of L.C. Sturm on some the plates betray the origins of the work, which undoubtedly lay in Sturm's unrealised plans to publish a complete compendium of civil architecture based on Goldmann's theories.

        The Sailing and Fighting Instructions or Signals as they are Observed in the Royal Navy of Great Britain

      London, (1715). b/w engravings. 16mo. Unpaginated. This is the first printed British Signal Book. ?"The year 1714 saw the issue of the first signal book. This curiously enough was a private venture of one Jonathan Greenwood... No doubt this duodecimo sized book was much more convenient than the folio sized Instructions. Each signal is represented by a drawing of a ship flying the flag or flags of the signal at the proper place, the purport being added underneath, a method at use in the French navy at least twenty years earlier... Apparently, although the Instructions were regarded as confidential the signals were not, as the work is described as, ?'designed to supply the Inferior Officers who cannot have recourse to the Printed Instructions.?'?"- Perrin, British Flags, p. 163. The book consists of 72 leaves, all engraved, most containing two illustrations of ships or cannon, many with contemporary hand-coloring - 67 engraved illustrations in all. A&W 1890. It is a scarce book in the trade, particularly in good condition, as most copies were used hard. Worldcat shows only two libraries holding copies. The most recent copy in comparable condition to appear at auction sold for 3000 pounds in 2009. It is uncertain whether or not all copies have a frontispiece portrait. This one does not. It is in very good condition, bound in full period blind stamped calf. A wonderful survival.

        The Works of Mr. Edmund Spenser

      London - Printed for Jacob Tonson, 1715 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The first edited edition of Spenser. Bound in calf with gilt frame and lettering. Edmund Spenser (c. 1552 13 January 1599) was an important English poet best known for The Faerie Queene, an epic poem celebrating, through fantastical allegory, the Tudor dynasty and Elizabeth I. He is recognised as one of the premier craftsmen of Modern English verse in its infancy. This edition was compiled by the poet John Hughes (1677-1720) who was an English poet noted for his editing of and commentary on the works of Edmund Spenser. Writing at the very end of 17th Century and at the beginning of the 18th, he also translated French drama and poetry, including Molire. With engravings by Ludwick Du GuernierCondition: The binding of the text blocks are tight and firm, however, volume vi's front board is missing and some of the hinges are strained and starting. There is significant wear to the extremities, including bumping and rubbing, with some loss to the leather. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright, withsome handling marks and the occasional browning. There is some slight spotting to the endpapers and some small ink signatures on the flyleafs. Overall the condition is fair, due to exterior..

        Africa Secundum legitimas Projecttionis Sterrographicae regulas et juxta recentissimas relationes et observationes?

      Nuremberg: , c1737. Engraved double page (24 " x 21 "), hand colored, large title uncolored cartouche in bottom left corner. Slight bend in right corner, normal aging and browning, slight creasing; otherwise very good plus or better. Very attractve overall. This handsome 18th century map of Africa presents Homann's 1715 map of Africa updated by Johann Matthias Hass to include new cartographic developments included by Delisle and D'Anville in their maps. The decorative cartouche shows Europeans negotiating with an African prince, with exotic flora and fauna including lions, a leopard, elephants, a rhino, a crocodile, tropical birds and an unidentified reptile complete the composition. An interesting feature of the cartouche is that the African prince is sitting on the back of another person. The map appears to provide an accurate depiction of Africa in the early part of the 18th century, without many of the fictitious lakes and rivers of earlier maps. Homann focuses on the known coastal regions of the continent, leaving the interior sections largely blank or marked Terra Incognito. On this map Egypt, Nubia and Abyssinia are shown as distinct entities. Norwich # 83.

      Boston: Reprinted: Sold by Nicholas Boone, at the Sign of the BIBLE in Cornhill, 1715. - Testimonial leaf, title-leaf, 116pp. 12mo. Modern calf in period style, over original birch boards, with original wastesheet pastedowns. Minor binding wear, margins trimmed a bit close in places, shaving a few letters and catchwords, small paper repair to upper forecorner of leaf C4, only evident on recto, a bit tanned. Overall very good. With contemporary ownership signature of Samuel Whitwell, an 1802 notation from an Andrew Grimes who bought the book at auction, and a 20th-century bookplate from the Zion Research Library. Second edition, after the virtually unobtainable first New York edition of 1713. The present pamphlet was issued in response to an attempt by the Mathers and others to initiate a movement to establish associations of clergy to exercise functions usually left up to individual churches. Wise has since been called the "first great American democrat," due to his argument that the ultimate power of the churches should rest with the congregation and not with their ministers or an association of ministers. "The People.are the first Subject of Power.a Democracy in Church or State is a very honourable Government." Wise's influential A VINDICATION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF NEW- ENGLAND CHURCHES (Boston, 1717) is the famous statement of his belief in Congregational polity. EVANS 1795 SABIN 104897. HOWES W594, "aa."

        The Sailing and Fighting Instructions or Signals as they are Observed in the Royal Navy of Great Britain

      London, (1715). b/w engravings. 16mo. Unpaginated. This is the first printed British Signal Book. “The year 1714 saw the issue of the first signal book. This curiously enough was a private venture of one Jonathan Greenwood... No doubt this duodecimo sized book was much more convenient than the folio sized Instructions. Each signal is represented by a drawing of a ship flying the flag or flags of the signal at the proper place, the purport being added underneath, a method at use in the French navy at least twenty years earlier... Apparently, although the Instructions were regarded as confidential the signals were not, as the work is described as, ‘designed to supply the Inferior Officers who cannot have recourse to the Printed Instructions.’”- Perrin, British Flags, p. 163. The book consists of 72 leaves, all engraved, most containing two illustrations of ships or cannon, many with contemporary hand-coloring - 67 engraved illustrations in all. A&W 1890. It is a scarce book in the trade, particularly in good condition, as most copies were used hard. Worldcat shows only two libraries holding copies. The most recent copy in comparable condition to appear at auction sold for 3000 pounds in 2009. It is uncertain whether or not all copies have a frontispiece portrait. This one does not. It is in very good condition, bound in full period blind stamped calf. A wonderful survival.

        Lettres Edifiantes et Curieuses, Ecrites des Missions Etrangeres, par quelques Missionnaires de la Compagnie de Jesus. Recueil XI

      Paris:: chez Nicholas le Clerc,. 1715.. First edition. Hardcover. Very good overall. Sabin provides a good account of the publishing history of these highly important compilations of reports sent back by Jesuit missionaries around the world. They include vivid accounts of the inhabitants of America, Asia and the South Seas particularly; and they are replete with lore on folkways, natural history and the incidental discoveries of the far-flung and often imperilled missionaries. Writing of a later edition, Thomas W. Field enthuses,"Every one of these volumes is crowded with interesting details for the history of the aborigines of the countries in which these wonderful men had their missions.". This is the eleventh volume of the 34 volumes that appeared between 1702 and 1776. The title at the spine is of the fifth of the six reports in the volume, and reads "Lettre du P. Marest, "Kaskaskia 1712". Kaskaskia was the name given to a local river by the indigenous people, about a dozen tribes which made up the Illinois Confederation, who lived in the Great Lakes region. In 1703 Kaskaskia became a permanent Jesuit mission and one of the major French settlements in the New World, with Indians, settlers, fur traders, and eventually slaves. There is a loosely inserted bookplate of previous owner Judge Walter B. Douglas of St. Louis who had an interest in the fur trade of Creole French pioneers of the eighteenth century in the Kaskaskia area. This volume includes a journal entry on the Philippines, titled "Relation en Forme de Journal, de la Decouverte des Isles de Palaos, ou nouvelles Philippines" (pp75 -91). The report describes the 1710 voyage of the 'Sainte Trinite' to the islands of the Philippine archipelago (under the Jesuit college of the Philippines), in which Fathers Duberron and Courtil (sic) were lost. These two Jesuit fathers were so eager to plant a crucifix at a small island, that they went ashore against captain's orders, and the vessel was carried away by the wind, leaving them behind. With a folding map of the Philippines, extending from the Philippines to the Celebes and the Marianas Islands, showing the track of the 14 November 1710 voyage of discovery. 12mo, [24], 428pp, [8], folding map. Contemporary full calf, spine decorated in gilt. Covers well rubbed, a very fresh copy inside. With the armorial bookplate of Philippe Vonderweil inside the front cover; a bit chipped at lower portion.

        Original Watercolour Painting of a Prince of Wales Own 10th Royal Hussar on Horseback (Untitled)

      - [no date]. () Very good. No date. 6.5" X 8.5" Original Watercolour (16.5 X 21.5 cm). With blue matting in a 12.25" X 15" (31 X 38 CM) thin copper brushed wooden frame. A beautifully detailed and richly coloured painting in fine condition, signed by the artist on the bottom right corner. The frame is somewhat worn with some light chipping. The painting depicts a sharp and clean image of a man on horse back (in regimental dress) turning his head backward to glance at the ladies on horse back who have just rode past him. The countryside behind him is soft with rolling hills and light clouds. A beautiful image. The dress of the man signifies that of the 10th Royal Hussars (Prince of Wales's Own) which was a cavalry regiment of the British Army from 1715 to 1969. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
