        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.

The countryside behind him is soft with rolling hills and light clouds. A beautiful image.

        A Second Tale Of A Tub

      J. Roberts, London, UK, 1715, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fair-, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, Presume 1stSize: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall, Seems to match all specifics for First Edition regarding the body of the text. Price given on title page as 3s 6d., book does not have illustrated frontispiece in place. After first 2 endsheets, the Imprimatur is verso 3rd sheet, facing title page. Date 1715 appears on title page w/ imprimatur 1714. Suspect restoration occurred with replacement of endsheets and perhaps boards, (I surmise that spine is original) many years ago. 219 pages (including first 6 on which no roman numerals appear) followed by 5 non-paginated. Pages numbered in roman numerals thru 43, 44 thru 219 in standard English characters. Collated in octavo manner (with unsigned pages at front), size measures 7 1/2 x 4 7/8". A few notes from the books previous owner/collector, "Old calf, cut marbled edge. satire of Robert Hartley, first Earl of Oxford M_____ Favorite Of Queen Anne. Many demands for the at time it came out in D & P catalog. Probably First Edition, Harley did not fall until death of Queen Anne. 1962." Details regarding the books condition as follows. The text has been nicely protected by the boards, while it has some age darkening and the ripple that seems typical of the era, it is heavy and attractive, I see no dog ear or notable chip, supple I might say. Sheets at the extremes do have more darkening and so forth. The first pastedown has 3 lightly penciled notes from the books previous owner, I will not try to erase. First endsheet has exquisite, very old penned note re the book, signed Cornelius Paine. 4 small penned notes appear on title page, ie authors actual name, initials M.H. in top margin, etc. As mentioned above, the endsheets look just a bit too new to be original and the boards have the look of having been rehinged at the spine. Front board nearly cracked thru, close to detatched. Back board less so but surely coming detached as well. Leather spine labeled "History of Robert Powel" with gilt illustrations has surface chipping of one half inch at head and foot, believe it to be original. The edges of this label (Powel's name) is chipping away. Leather boards have fine line of gilt trim at edges. Age appropriate wear, tip abrasion. Now stored as close to airtight as possible in acid free clear glassine sleeve. Photograph will follow shortly.

        A Correct Chart of the Carribee Islands.

      London. 1715-50 - Size: 525 x 430 mm. Fine condition. Copper engraving. Uncoloured. Depicted with north to the right, extending from Puerto Rico to Venezuela, title cartouche at top centre. The map has a compass at sea, rhumb lines, anchorages and depth soundings. It was published in The English Pilot for Mount and Page, in John Seller's fourth book, covering American waters. The atlas was produced and published to counter the prevailing dominance and output of maritime material by the Dutch. Seller began his atlas in the 1670s, and it proved so popular that it ran to over 30 editions, the later ones produced some 100 years later. As a result many charts were re-engraved, or replaced entirely by more accurate examples. Tooley, Maps and Mapmaking p61

EXCEPTIONALLY FINE CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO, covers bordered by plain gilt rule and dogtooth roll, raised bands, spines heavily gilt in compartments with large central fleuron, feather cornerpieces, each spine with a green morocco label, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials, and 19 engraved plates (including frontispieces). Intermittent neat pencil marks in the margins. Lowndes III, 2477. Tiny dent to one board, light offsetting from engraved material, one opening with (tea?) stain, a couple of dozen leaves moderately browned, but all of these imperfections minor, the set being otherwise IN EXTRAORDINARILY FINE CONTEMPORARY CONDITION, the text especially fresh and clean, and the bindings lustrous and showing no significant signs of use. This is a splendid copy of a new edition of Spenser's works, complete with a life of the poet and a glossary of obscure words; it is also apparently the first illustrated edition. Spenser (1552?-99) was the first modern English poet to achieve major stature, and Day points out that those "influenced by Spenser are virtually a roster of the great English poets since his time," among them Milton, Wordsworth, Keats, Rossetti, and Tennyson. The editor here, John Hughes (1677-1720), was a man of many talents who produced a number of poems and plays (his "Siege of Damascus" is considered his masterpiece) as well as translations of French and Italian works. The very pretty bindings are in outstanding "country house" condition, among the finest looking 18th century sets we've ever offered for sale.

        Die Chur-Brandenburgische Hof-Wehe-Mutter, Das ist: Ein höchst- nöthiger Unterricht von schweren und unrechtstehenden Gebuhrten, ...

      . Leipzig, Friedr. Braun, 1715, 4°, (34), 348, (12) pp., mit schön gestochenem Frontispiz, 42 Kupfertafeln (2 in Faksimile), 1 gefaltete Foliokupfertafel, Ledereinband der Zeit; Rücken erneuert; feines Exemplar.. KLASSIKER DER GEBURTSHILFE: "Die Chur-Brandenburgische Hof-Wehe-Mutter das ist: ein höchst-nöthiger Unterricht, von schweren und unrechtstehenden Geburten : in einem Gespräch vorgestellet, wie nehmlich, durch göttlichen Beystand eine wohl-unterrichtete und geübte Wehe-Mutter, mit Verstand und geschickter Hand, dergleichen verhüten, oder wanns Noth ist, das Kind wenden könne : durch vieler Jahre Übung, selbst erfahren und wahr befunden, nun aber Gott zu Ehren und dem Nächsten zu Nutz, auch auf gnädigst- und inständiges Verlagen Durchläuchtigst- und vieler hohen Standes-Personen : nebst Vorrede, Kupffer-Bildern und nöhigem Register zum Druck befördert.; Von Justinen Siegemundin, gebohrner Dittrichin, Von Ronnstock aus Schlesien, im Jaurischen Fürstenthum gelegen." - - Fast unveränderter Nachdruck der Erstausgabe (1690). - - "Nachdem sie ein von ihr verfasstes , ganz aus ihren eigenen vieljährigen Erfahrung und den Notizen, die sie sich über jeden schweren Geburtsfall gemacht hatte, geschöpfte Werk der med. Facultät in Frankfurt an der Oder, zur Censur vorgelegt hatte und deren Billigung 1689 erhalten hatte, erschien es unter dem Titel "Die Chur-Brandenburgische Hoff-Wehe-Mutter, das ist: ein höchst nöthiger Unterricht von schweren und unrecht stehenden Geburten, in einem Gespräch vorgestellt" (Coelln a.d. Spree 1690, 4°, 1692; 1708, (Leipzig) 1715; spätere Auflagen unter dem Titel: "Die Königl. Preuss. und Chur-Brandenb. Hoff-Wehe-Mutter u.s.w.", Berlin 1723, 4°, 1741, 1756; Leipzig 1713, 1724; holländische Uebersetzung von Cornelius Solingen, Amsterdam 1691, 4°." G. in Hirsch-H. V, pp.263-264 - - Eines der einflußreichsten Hebammenbücher überhaupt. Bedeutendste geburtshilfliche Schrift, die im 17. Jahrhundert ihren Ursprung hat. Es ist ein in Text und Abbildungen ganz originales Werk, das nicht auf Vorbildern wie Roesslin und Rueff fußt. Das Lehrbuch der Siegemundin blieb für ein Jahrhundert Hauptquelle und maßgeblicher Berater, aus der Hebammen und Ärzte schöpften. Das Werk ist in Gesprächsform zwischen zwei "friedliebenden Wehemüttern" abgefaßt. Die großformatigen, klaren Abbildungen zeigen diverse Fehllagen, zu deren Behebung die Siegemundin verdienstvolle Neuerungen einführte. Der "doppelte Handgriff der Siegemundin" erinnert noch heute an die Autorin. Die Justine Siegemundin (1636-1705) erfand auch das Stäbchen zum Einführen von Wendeschlingen und wußte, daß Gesichts- und Beckenlagen oft ohne Kunsthilfe gut enden können. Die Autorin hat nur ihre Erfahrungen zu Rate gezogen und die Natur zur Lehrmeisterin gemacht. -- Unser Band enthält das schön gestochene Frontispiz, das in späteren Auflagen nicht mehr erscheint. In einer Kartusche, von Putten umringt, die eine Blumengirlande halten, steht der Sinnspruch "An Gottes hilff und Seegen, Geschickten hand bewegen, Ist all mein Tuhn gelegen". - - Minimal restauriertes schönes Exemplar! - - cf. Garrison & Morton 6149 (1st. Ed. 1690); Thomas, Classical Contribution to Obstetrics and Gynecology, 54-59; Hirsch-H. V, 394-395

        THE CASE OF CHARLES LORD BALTEMORE, A MINOR, WITH RELATION TO HIS GOVERNMENT OF MARYLAND

      [London, 1715. Broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Small folio. Antique style half calf and marbled boards. Some very minor foxing, else near fine. Maryland restored to the Lords Baltimore In 1689, following the Glorious Revolution, the royal charter to Maryland was withdrawn from the Roman Catholic Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore, who had inherited the colony from his father, Cecil Calvert, Maryland's first proprietary governor, in 1675. While Maryland was in direct possession of the Crown, Charles's son Benedict Leonard Calvert renounced Catholicism and joined the Church of England in the hopes of having the family's title to Maryland restored. At the death of his father in February 1715, Benedict Leonard was named 4th Baron Baltimore and immediately petitioned George I for return of colony. Before the King could rule on the matter, however, Baltimore suddenly died in April, and his title passed to his sixteen year-old son, Charles, to whom Maryland was restored that year. The present petition to Parliament states that Cecil Calvert had exhausted much of the family's estate in his cultivation and improvement of Maryland and that the new Lord Baltimore has thus been left without funds to provide for his five siblings. His advocates request that Maryland may therefore be exempt from a new £3000 per year colonial tax. As the tax was intended in part to fund protection to the colonists from Indians, the petition further notes that few Indians remained in Maryland and could be easily overpowered by the white inhabitants. Rare, with ESTC recording only one copy, at Oxford. Hanson 2149.

        Books Printed and Sold by the Assigns of J. Sowle, at the Bible in George-Yard, in Lombard Street

      1715. (London, 1715?). 8pp. 8vo. Drop head title. Disbound (loose). J. Sowle must be Jane Sowle, wife of Andrew Sowle and mother of Tace Sowle. On this family of printers Plomer says the following about the Sowle family: Andrew Soyle was a printer in London. Although his name is not found in any imprint before 1683 there is no doubt that he was the printer of most, if not all, of the early Quaker literature. In the obiturary notice of him it was stated that he engaged himsel freely in printing Friends books, and that his printing materials were several times seized and broken to pieces, and on one occasion a thousand reams of printed books were taken from him. On another occasion he was taken before Sir Richard Browne, who threatened to send him after his brother Twyn, who had been executed in 1664 for printing a seditious book. One of his daughters, Tace (or Tacy) succeeded her father in the business. Dunton (pp. 222-3) says of her: She is both a Printer as well as a Bookseller, and the daughter of one; and understands her trade very well, being a good Compositor herself... She keeps herself unmarried. Three years later however, in 1706, she married Thomas Raylton. Her mother Jane Sowle, and from 1715 the latter's assigns, continued the business.

        TO THE] LORDS COMMISSIONERS FOR THE LONGITUDE [caption title].

      [London? ]. 1715 - Small folio broadside. Dbd. Closely cropped, with loss of first line of title and portion of printed signature. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Overall very good. An extremely rare petitionary leaflet relating to the historic longitude prize, evidently printed in the first two years after the creation of the Board of Longitude. In 1714, responding to a problem that had continued to beleaguer sailors and cartographers well into the age of navigation, Parliament passed the Longitude Act, establishing awards from £10,000 to £20,000 for developing an accurate methods of determining longitude and a panel, the Board of Longitude, to judge submissions. The author of the present document, Conyers Purshull (for whom no biographical information has been discovered), had submitted a plan for finding longitude at sea by "measuring the Distance which the Ship runs from Place to Place, with a Wheel fixed thro' the Bottom of a Boat towed by the Ship." His plan was rejected by the Board based on three major objections, for which Purshull offers various solutions here. The petition was discovered in a bound volume of similar documents, nearly all of which date with some certainty to 1714 and 1715, and there is no reason to believe that this document is an exception. It 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 records no copies; OCLC lists one, at Yale.

        Barnacle-encrusted spike from a sunken galleon in the Spanish Treasure Fleet of 1715

      [Off Florida Coast], [1715] Heavy barnacle-encrusted spike, approximately 2? in diameter, 7? long, recovered from a sunken Spanish Galleon in the treasure fleet of 1715, four days after leaving Havana for Spain. 4.5 lbs.From 1561-1748, the Spanish government sent two merchant convoys each year, with few exceptions, to the New World. One went to Mexico, the other to Panama. They brought European goods to the colonists and returned with gold and silver coins, gem stones, and other valuables. These convoys became known as treasure fleets.Two fleets filled with treasures left Cubafor Spain on July 27, 1715. They sailed up the east coast of Florida. On July 31, 1715, a hurricane drove the fleets into the reefs along the east coast of Florida. The entire fleet of 11 ships and nearly half of the 2500 crew members were lost. Some of the ships? cargo was salvaged by the Spanish government, but most of it remained on the ocean floor.From the Certificate of Authenticity signed in facsimile by Mel Fisher, Preside

      . Amsterdam, J. Desbordes, 1715. Two parts in two. 8vo. 1,087 [(xxviii), 512; (xii), 492, (34)] pp., two engraved frontispieces, three engraved plates (one larger, folded), one large folded map. Uniform vellum with script title on the spines.* Very rare French translation of a work first published in Spanish in 1609-1616, this being the second Amsterdam edition. Widely regarded as the most accurate description of the Inca kingdom. With a fine large map of northwestern South America, including Peru and most of Colombia, and eastern Brazil. Garcilaso "El Inca" de la Vega (1539-1616), born in Cuzco, was the first scholar of mixed European and Inca descent. Old private book owner's stamp on the front flyleaf rectos, some text sections rather toned, otherwise a nice clean set. We could only trace two copies in the auction records, one in 1914 and one in 1972, so this edition is very rare. Brunet II, 1483; Sabin, 98752..
