        FARTHER REASONS HUMBLY OFFER'D FOR PASSING THE FISH BILL [caption title].

      [London? ]. 1715 - Broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Small folio. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good. A rare British leaflet from the Fishmonger- Smackman Controversy of 1715. That year, a bill was in motion before Parliament that would regulate various aspects of the fishing industry, including fish size, net use and mesh size, and the importation of lobster. The latter issue ignited a significant controversy between and among British fish merchants and lobstermen, with the most vocal merchants supporting a clause that would remove a ban on the sale of lobster caught by foreigners. In the present document, the pro- free-trade-lobster fishmonger lobby responds to a recent leaflet by fellow fish merchants allied with the smackmen. An early example of commercial 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 five copies, at the University of London, Oxford, the California State Library, Harvard, and Yale. HANSON 2122.

        Bildnis einer jungen bürgerlichen Familie, um 1790.

      . Feder und Pinsel in Grau, über Bleistift, in zarten Farbtönen aquarelliert, mit getuschter Umrandung, auf Bütten. 24,5 x 19,5 cm. Mit mehreren Reißnagellöchlein im Rand, Tuschfleck rechts oben.. Schüler seines Vaters Johann Valentin Tischbein (1715-1768) in Hildburghausen, ab 1768 seines Onkels Johann Heinrich Tischbein d. Ä. (1722-1789) in Kassel. Die Unterstützung durch den Fürsten Friedrich von Waldeck ermöglichte ihm einen Studienaufenthalt in Paris 1772-1777, wo er die Akademie unter N. B. Lepicie (1735-1784) besuchte. Sein anschließender Romaufenthalt brachte ihn den Malern A. R. Mengs (1728-1779), J. L. David (1748-1825) und Fr.H. Füger (1751-1818) näher und führte wahrscheinlich zu einer intensiveren Auseinandersetzung mit der englischen Portraitmalerei. 1779 reiste er nach Neapel. 1780 verließ er Italien wieder Richtung Wien, um noch im selben Jahr über München, Stuttgart und Kassel nach Arolsen zu kommen. Hier arbeitete er im Dienst des Fürsten von Waldeck. Seit 1780 war er dessen Rat und Kabinettsmaler. Diese Jahre waren durch zahlreiche Reisen unterbrochen, die ihn mehrmals nach Holland und 1785 nach Weimar führten und mit bedeutenden Bekanntschaften (1785 Wieland, 1792 A.W. Schlegel) verbunden waren. 1795 trat er in den Dienst Leopold III. von Anhalt-Dessau. 1800 wurde er als Nachfolger A. Fr. Oesers (1717-1799) zum Direktor der Leipziger Kunstakademie berufen. In Leipzig lebte er mit Ausnahme einer längeren Reise nach St. Petersburg (1806-1808) bis zu seinem Tod, der ihn auf einer Reise in Heidelberg bei seiner Tochter Caroline, verehel. Wilken (1783 - 1843), ereilte. Der sogen "Leipziger Tischbein" gilt als bedeutender Porträtist der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft und bedeutendster Repräsentant seiner Familie.

        THE CASE OF THE SOAP-MAKERS MAKING GREEN-SOAP [caption title].

      [London? ]. 1715 - Broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Mild foxing. Very good. An early lobbying leaflet petitioning Parliament to lift the duty on domestic green soap. The authors argue that the soap is being twice-taxed, as the oil and potashes from which it is made amounts to fifty percent of the duty already being paid on the soap itself, and that the resulting high prices have created a black market in soap. The petition is among the earliest examples of commercial lobbying literature, which first began proliferating in the lobby of the House of Commons around the time of the accession of King George I and the British general election of 1715. ESTC and OCLC together record copies at six institutions in Britain and three in the U.S. (Harvard, University of Michigan, and University of Texas at Austin). HANSON 1723.

        Prospect af det Kongelig Slott Friderichsberg at See fra midten i Haugen Anno 1756.

      Kobberstik af Johan Jacob Bruun efter eget forlæg. 17 x 24,5 cm. Kobberstikket er ikke koloreret. I en nyere håndforsølvet Carl Petersen ramme med passepartout fra Brock Rammehåndværk. Rammen måler 30,5 x 37,5 cm. - Godt, stærkt tryk. Fornemt eksemplar.. Johan Jacob Bruun (1715-1789). Topografisk tegner og maler med en meget stor produktion af prospekter - tuschtegninger, akvareller og gouacher - af danske byer og slotte m.v. Han tegnede bl.a. forlæg til mange illustrationer i Laurids de Thurahs "Den Danske Vitruvius" (1746-1749) og "Hafnia Hodierna" (1748). J. J. Bruun forsøgte sig på egen hånd med det ufuldendte værk "Novus Atlas Daniæ". Subskriptionsindbydelse blev udsendt i 1757 (prospekterne ville komme i løsblade) og frem til 1764 udsendte han ialt 60 kobberstik efter egne forlæg. Herefter stoppede udgivelsen, måske fordi J. J. Bruuns værk blev overhalet indenom af Erik Pontoppidans "Den Danske Atlas", hvis to første bind udkom 1763-1764.Efter Johan Jacob Bruuns død i 1789 købte den vindskibelige G. L. Lahde kobberpladerne, og i årene 1799 til 1806 benyttede han dem i værket Dannemarks Kiøbstæder og Slotte i Kobbere af Bruun, historisk-topografisk beskrevet og udgivet af Sander, Nyerup og Lahde. Der var kun få ændringer af stikkene, bl.a. var årstallet fjernet på de fleste

        The Iliad of Homer

      London: Bernard Lintot, 1715-20. First edition of Alexander Pope's monumental illustrated translation of Homer's Iliad, the suscription edition. Quarto, 6 volumes, uniformly bound in contemporary calf, with gilt titles to the spine and corner ornaments, rebacked to style in brown calf, raised bands. The bookplate in each volume of Sir John C. Hobhouse. John Cam Hobhouse (1786-1869), was Lord Byron's close friend, literary confidante and executor. Frontispiece portrait of Homer. In very good condition with some of the usual toning. An attractive set. Encouraged by Swift, Addison and Steele, among others, 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 part of the religion of men of letters of the day… But a Homer in modern English was still wanting. Pope's 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 that Homer was not a mere instrument of torture invented by their masters. No translation of profane literature has ever occupied such a position" (DNB).

        Autograph letter signed ("G. G. Leibnitius").

      Hannover, 27. III. 1715.. 1 p. on bifolium with integral address panel.. In Latin, with a Greek interspersion, to the "clarissimo et doctissimo domino Bühel" in Braunschweig, i.e., the theologian and scholar Johann Christian Biel (1687-1745), concerning classical writings and languages: "Vir Doctissime. Video me nondum tibi gratias egisse pro egregio specimine Hesychiano quo et doctrinam et diligentiam tuam satis ostendis. Quo pauciores in his oris tibi similes sunt, eo magis tibi favendum est. Nam vulgo valde frigent haec studia quae non sunt [pros ta alphita]. - Laurentium [recte: Ludolphum] Custerum audio in nova Hesychii editione curanda Parisiis occupari. Quod si tibi liberet cum eo conferre, operam meam offero. Etsi enim mihi cum eo nullum sit per literas commercium, habeo tamen amicos qui libenter literas curabunt. - Rogo ut subinde annotes vocabula Scythica quae tibi forte in Hesychio aliisque Graecis scriptoribus occurrent. Fuere qui persica, indica, Aegyptiaca, phrygi[c]a, celtica collegere. Miror scythica neminem quod sciam curasse. Quod superest vale et me ama [...] P.S. Indicabis qua ratione recte literae ad te curentur et an suffciat Tabellarii offcio committi, quod nunc facio". The lexicon of Hesychius was an ancient reference tool for the study of Greek grammar; Biel was working on a publication of "all the scriptural glosses found in Hesychius". A new edition was apparently planned by the scholar Ludolph Küster, to be published at Paris, but Küster died suddenly in 1716, before the work was completed. Curiously, Leibniz mentions his interest in Scythia and asks Biel to let him know of any Scythian names or references he encounters in his work. Leibniz was at the time, one and a half years before his death, a political advisor and librarian to the House of Brunswick-Lüneburg in Hanover. - Several corrections and insertions by Leibniz. The address has been corrected by a Braunschweig postal official: "Biel / aufm Hagenmarkt zu erfragen". Traces of original folds. Small hole and edge trimming from removal of seal on address leaf, otherwise very fine. - G. W. Leibniz: Sämtliche Schriften und Briefe, Transkriptionen des Briefwechsels 1715, S. 119f., Nr. 84 ("Privatbesitz [?]"). First published: N. Barkey (ed.), Symbolae litterariae Haganae ad incrementum scientiarum omne genus (The Hague, 1779), p. 483f.

      Lon., 1715. 178 pp. "For the government and encrease of the navigation of England, and the relief of poor mariners, their widdows and orphans, &c."

        The Iliad of Homer & The Odyssey of Homer

      London: Bernard Lintot, 1715-26. First editions of Alexander Pope's monumental illustrated translations of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. Quarto, 11 volumes. Uniformly bound in full contemporary calf, gilt tooling to the spine with red morocco labels. Some rubbing to the spine and extremities, a very good set overall, scarce and desirable in contemporary calf. The subscribers list for the Iliad lists 575 subscribers, including Addison, Congreve, Newton, Steele and others; that for The Odyssey are 610 (including those in the supplementary list appended to the final volume). For the Odyssey, Pope was assisted by Elijah Fenton and William Broome, and pencil notes in the texts identify the responsible party for the specific Books and Notes. That those pencil annotations and incidental others in pencil in the same hand scattered elsewhere are Hobhouse's seems probable, as a pencil note in a quite similar (or same) hand appears at the conclusion of the Postscript to the final volume (14 Dec. 1843 J.H.), suggesting either the date of his acquisition of the set, or more likely, his completion of reading. Editions in folio (large and small) to benefit the publisher followed the appearance of each new volume in a timely fashion, the proceeds from Subscriber's quarto edition having been Pope's exclusively. Encouraged by Swift, Addison and Steele, among others, 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 part of the religion of men of letters of the day… But a Homer in modern English was still wanting. Pope's 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 that Homer was not a mere instrument of torture invented by their masters.

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."
