        The Iliad [The Odyssey] of Homer,

      London: Bernard Lintot,, 1715–26. Translated by Mr. Pope. 2 works together, 11 volumes, quarto (220 × 278 mm). Handsomely bound for James Brydges, first duke of Chandos, in contemporary red morocco, spines lettered in gilt, gilt raised bands and compartments, boards panelled in gilt, marbled endpapers, decorative gilt rolls to board-edges and turn-ins, gilt edges. Iliad: engraved frontispiece portrait of Homer by Vertue, folding map, folding view; without the Shield of Achilles plate, often lacking. Odyssey: a different engraved frontispiece portrait of Homer by Vertue. Pictorial headpiece and opening initial to each book. Some skilful restoration to extremities; a little water staining at head to early leaves of Iliad, v.1; ink stain to early leaves of Iliad, v.2, chiefly affecting edges; short tear without loss to upper outer corner of sig. 5N1 (Iliad, v.3) just touching the page numeral only; two conjugate leaves in Iliad v.6 (sigs. 10B1 and 10B4, recte 10X1 and 10X4) extended at head without affecting text (presumably a print shop accident repaired before binding); tear at foot of sig. K2 of Odyssey, v.2, without loss; faint water marking to last leaves of Odyssey, v.5; occasional minor foxing, spotting, or offsetting elsewhere; but a handsome copy of the subscribers edition in a luxury binding. First edition, one of 750 quarto sets for subscribers (there were also copies issued one month later in both large paper and small folio format) of one of the most important publications of its era, notable for establishing Pope as probably the first true professional poet in English. The particular method of publication by subscription in episodic annual volumes was innovative, allowing Bernard Lintot to use profits generated from one volume to finance printing of the next. Pope signed a contract for his new verse translation of Homer's Iliad with Lintot on 23 March 1714, a contract which specified that Lintot could not sell other copies until one month after the poet's 750 special subscribers' copies had been delivered. By presenting the poem in quarto, rather than the folios of Chaucer, Jonson, and Shakespeare, Pope's Homer introduced a new format for canonical literature into English publishing, following the pattern established in France around the middle of the seventeenth century. Pope's third large-scale enterprise, his edition of Shakespeare, completed in 1725, would appear in the same format. This set has the ownership inscription on the first front free endpaper verso dated 1745 of Lady Caroline Brydges, daughter of the second Duke of Chandos, whose father, the first duke, subscribed for ten sets, below the inscription of her mother, née Cassandra Willoughby (1670–1735), recording it as the gift of "my Dear Lord". Lady Caroline Brydges in turn received the set shortly after her father inherited the Chandos titles in August 1744. The pastedowns bear the armorial bookplates (over marks of removed bookplates) of her husband James Leigh (1724–1774) of Adlestrop, Gloucestershire, whom she married on 10 March 1755. The Chandos connection is interesting. James Brydges, the first duke, known to his contemporaries as "The Apollo of the Arts", was a noted patron of, among others, the composer Handel. Pope was subsequently much embarrassed when his Epistle to Burlington, published on 14 December 1731, was falsely alleged to satirize the duke's vast house, Cannons, where Handel had lived and composed for two years. Hogarth caricatured Pope splattering Chandos's carriage and the poet was forced to apologise. Pope's poem had prophesied the demolition of Timon's villa: on inheriting Cannons, the second duke found the family finances so encumbered by the costs of building it that he had it pulled down. The translation of the Iliad took Pope "six years, and at first 'I wished any body would hang me', he told Spence; he was 'under great pain and apprehensions' over it and 'dreamed often of being engaged in a long journey and that I should never get to the end of it' (Spence, 197, 193) … Pope earned £1275 from Lintot for his translation. Subscriptions raised this sum (by a modern estimate) to about £5000. Pope's version of the Odyssey, for which he recruited William Broome and Elijah Fenton as collaborators, was completed in 1726 and brought him (he said) £600 0s. 0d. from Lintot; again subscriptions are thought to have raised his profit to around £5000 (Spence, 201; Foxon, 63, 101). In 1976 David Foxon estimated that the value of Pope's Homer to the poet, translated into the financial values of that year, was about £200,000. This established Pope's fortune and set his fame on a firmer foundation. As he wrote in 1737, 'But (thanks to Homer) since I live and thrive,/Indebted to no Prince or Peer alive' (Epistle 2, ii.68–9, Poems, 4.169)" (ODNB).

Alles naaukeurig gereekent, ... als nooit in eenig boek van diergelyke stoffe. Amsterdam, printed for the author and sold by Hendrik van Eyl, [ca. 1716]. 4to. With 447 pages of tables. With 4 manuscript leaves of tables added by a contemporary owner. Contemporary vellum.

      STCN (5 copies); not in Hoover; Kress. Practical guide to the calculation of the value of gold and silver of any purity, intended for merchants, mint masters and others who deal with precious metals. The author notes that there is "now" a great deal of low grade gold and silver on the market (below 20 carat and 10 penningen respectively, i.e. below 83 1/3 %), and that previously published guides did not cover these in a convenient manner. He therefore first explains how these metals are weighed in the Netherlands, presenting the units of weight and their relations, and gives instructions for using the tables, with examples. Once one has weighed the gold or silver and assayed it to give the purity in carats/mark or penningen/mark respectively, the tables on pp. 1-223 and 225-395 tell the weight of fine metal in a given weight of impure metal. Once one knows the weight of fine gold or silver, one can look up its value in guilders in the tables on pp. 224 and 396-447. Grill was himself an assayer. In 1715 he published his tables for gold alone, also sold by Van Eyl, and the present tables for gold and silver probably followed soon after. The heaviest weight listed for both gold and silver is 100 marks (so that the tables could be used without multiplication for weights up to 200 marks), but for silver in four degrees of purity, a contemporary owner has inserted manuscript tables for weights up to4000 marks.In very good condition. A rare and valuable window into trade in precious metals in the early 18th-century Netherlands.

        Nouveau voyage autour du Monde , où l'on décrit en particulier l'Isthme de l'Amerique, plusieurs Côtes et Isles des Indes Occidentales

      Rouen: Robert Machuel le jeune & Eustache Herault, 1715. Five volumes, duodecimo, with a total of 34 engraved maps, coastal profiles and harbour plans (12 folding) and 32 plates (13 folding) including engraved title pages and frontispiece for volume I-III; two of the title-pages a little chipped at one corner; contemporary French mottled calf, banded spines richly gilt, crimson morocco labels, from the Villeneuve library with engraved bookplates to all volumes. A beautiful set of the first full collection of Dampier. Rare: an attractive set of the first collected edition of Dampier in any language to include the related accounts of Cowley, Sharp and Wood. Most of the maps, coastal profiles, and natural history plates are accurate copies of the English originals, but this edition is notable for the addition of a small series of newly engraved views (perhaps based on the Dutch edition Nieuwe reystogt rondom de werreld, published between 1698 and 1704). Dampier's 'style is clear and simple, making his writings almost classical. A precursor of the Enlightenment, he was not interested in marvels, but in examination and description of natural phenomena. Through his writings, Dampier made known the profitable possibilities in the Pacific' (Hill, describing the collected English edition). It is interesting that it was not until 1729, some fourteen years after the present edition, that the London publishers Knapton prepared their famous four-volume edition of the collected Dampier, which also included the accounts of Cowley, Sharp and Wood. Borba de Moraes noted that part of the edition was printed by Robert Machuel and part by Eustache Herault.

The whole extracted from MSS and printed Evidences. Attempted in an Alphabetical Order. 2 volumes. 8vo. [191 x 116 x 61 mm]. [4]ff, xl, 183, [1] pp; [3]ff, xii, 558, 10 pp. Bound in contemporary black goatskin, the volumes bound in a similar style but with different tools, the covers tooled in gilt with a double fillet border, a single fillet outer panel with an acorn tool at the corners on vol.1 and a fleuron on vol. 2, and volutes at the centre of each sides, mitred to a triple fillet inner panel. The spines divided into six gilt panels with triple fillet compartments, lettered in the second panels, the others tooled with central ornaments and corner scrolls, the edges of the boards and turn-ins tooled with gilt rolls, marbled endleaves, gilt edges. (The spines slightly faded). A supplementary volume appeared many years later, in 1750. In vol. 2 pp.297-304 have been bound in twice. At first glance the bindings appear uniform, but the tools used on the two volume are all different. This may be explained by the year separating the publication dates. They are a distinguished pair of bindings - possibly designed for presentation. The first volume has a number of manuscript corrections. Bookplate of P.W. Donner, covering the bookplate of John Wallop who was in 1727 made Viscount Lymington and in 1743 became the first Earl of Portsmouth. From the library at Hurstbourne Park, Hampshire.

        A Mapp of Ye Improved Part of Pensilvania in America, Divided into Countyes, Townships and Lotts

      London: Philip Lea, ca. 1715. London: Philip Lea, ca. 1715 Single sheet (18 1/2 x 21 1/2 inches). A fine engraved and detailed map of Pennsylvania, with a inset map "The City of Philadelphia Two Miles in Length and one in Breadth" within an allegorical cartouche top centre, the dedication to William Penn within an elaborate armorial cartouche upper right, with two keys at the left and right-hand edges, showing the properties of settlers throughout the area, the Delaware and its branches at the border with New Jersey. THE FIRST MAP OF PENNSYLVANIA: "without question the finest printed cartographic document relating to North America to be published to date" (Burden). First single sheet edition, second issue with Lea's imprint erased and a simple rectangular box lower left stating Willdey as the seller of the map, reduced from an original seven-sheet map for printed for the political use of William Penn and his associates, or the "more notable wealthy citizens of the colony" (Burden). Holmes' map depicts the settled, outlying regions of Philadelphia, and also contains an inset, modestly-sized plan of the aforementioned city. The dominant map depicts William Penn's own manor of Pennsbury upriver to Newcastle, and, further inland, the present-day sites of West Chester and Doylestown. In addition, the map lists the names and depicts the properties of the hundreds of settlers who inhabited the region. Penn, a Quaker and founder of the Pennsylvania colony, commissioned Holme to create this map as a means of advertising the settlement abroad. Penn's incredible knack for salesmanship helped the region become the most swiftly occupied North American colony to date. Holme, Pennsylvania's first Surveyor General, played a primary role in the planning of the City of Philadelphia, and had also won great acclaim for his outstanding 1683 map of the then infant city entitled, Portraiture of the City of Philadelphia. Thus, by 1688 Penn could have found no more qualified candidate than Holme to create the first map of Pennsylvania's settlements. After Holme completed drafting the map, Penn enlisted Francis Lamb to engrave it. Penn's old friend John Thornton and Robert Greene took charge of the map's publication. The version of the map shown here, representing the first state, is a single sheet reduction of Holme's original seven-sheet work, and was released by Philip Lea and engraved by John Harris. Lea, one of the premier English publishers of the seventeenth century, acquired the map's original plates from Greene's daughter. Once Lea controlled the rights to the map, he ordered a number of changes be made to the plate before releasing his own edition of it. Such changes largely resulted from Lea's desire to broaden the map's appeal to a group of buyers that went beyond mere politicians and wealthy Pennsylvanian settlers. Thus, he reduced the original seven-sheet version to one sheet. Nevertheless, Lea's edition of the map preserved many of the original features of the earlier map. For example, the plan of Philadelphia is merely shifted to the top and center of the map, and the dedication is kept intact. Moreover, since the shrunken size of many of the new land lots contained in the updated version of the map could no longer hold the names of its owners, Lea listed the names of these owners in a keyed table on the upper right corner of the map. Toponyms are also preserved, but slightly adjusted so as to appear more level on the surface of the map. Gloria Gilda Deak, Picturing America, 1497-1899 (Princeton, 1988), no. 72; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America II: A List of Printed Maps 1671-1700 (Rickmansworth, 2007), 669.

        King of Sweden; from his first Landing in Denmark, to his Return from Turkey to Pomerania.

      By a Scots Gentleman in the Sweedish Service. London, A. Bell, 1715. 8vo. (4),+ 192, 225-400 pp. Spotting. Modern half calf, gilt spine (Johanna Röjgård). ESTC: T65952. Moore 322. Warmholtz 5806. First edition, a second was published in 1720 with the title changed to "...his late Majesty Charles XII". The attribution to Daniel Defoe is disputed. Only the second edition has a portrait. Warmholtz ansåg att även om den anonyme författaren kan ha varit i svensk tjänst så visar alla missuppfattningar på att framställningen är uppdiktad och bygger på pamfletter. Huruvida upphovsmannen till verket är Defoe eller inte har varit omtvistat, men det är idag allmänt accepterat. Under några år efter sina mer politiskt kontroversiella ungdomsverk skrev Defoe en rad historiska böcker med utnyttjande av pamflettlitteratur som källa, innan han 1719 började skriva romaner såsom "Robinson Crusoe". Även denna historik över Karl XII är dock till en del skönlitterär och är delvis skriven i jagform. Den andra upplagan utökades fram till kungens död

        An Act for Building and Maintaining a Lighthouse upon the Great Brewster (called Beacon Island) at the Entrance of the Harbour of Boston

      Folio sheet, printed both sides. “Passed by the Great and General Court or Assembly of His Majesties Province of the Massachusetts-Bay in New-England... the Twenty-fifth of May, 1715...” The act calls for a lighthouse on the southern tip of Great Brewster, to be lit from sundown to sunup. Great Brewster was selected because, unlike the other low-lying islands in the area, it is a drumlin, rising about 100 feet above sea level, and thus insuring a good view of the light. The project was to be financed by a duty of one penny per ton upon vessels using the harbor. The act primarily concerns itself with defining who is subject to the duty, but the final paragraph spells out the duties of the lighthouse keeper, and the penalties for neglect of his job. Removed from larger volume, but complete. Pinhole in right margin, else excellent condition. A foundation document in the history of American light houses.

      London - Printed for J. T. and Sold by Owen Lloyd, 1715. London - Printed for J. T. and Sold by Owen Lloyd, 1715 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The uncommon first edition of The Political Writings of Sir Richard Steele. Bound in calf with gilt lettering. With a tipped-in illustration opposite the title page. Sir Richard Steele, d. 1729, was an Irish writer and politician, remembered as co-founder, with his friend Joseph Addison, of the magazine The Spectator. A member of the Protestant gentry, he was educated at Charterhouse School, where he first met Addison. He went on to Merton College, Oxford, then with joined the Life Guards of the Household Cavalry. In 1709, Steele founded a thrice-weekly satirical magazine, Tatler, which lasted only two years in its first incarnation. Joseph Addison was a frequent contributor. Following the demise of the Tatler, the two men founded The Spectator. A member of the Whig Kit-Kat Club, Steele became a Member of Parliament of the United Kingdom in 1713, but was soon expelled for issuing a pamphlet in favour of the Hanoverian succession. When George I of Great Britain came to the throne in the following year, Steele was knighted and given responsibility for the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London.

        D. Junii Juvenalis et A. PersiiflacciSatirae Interpretatione ac Notis Illustravit Ludovicus PrateusRhetoricae Professor EmeritusJussuChristianissimi Regis, In Usum Serenissimi Delphini

      London - J. Nicholson et al., 1715. London - J. Nicholson et al., 1715 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of satirical poems from Juvenal and Persius, two Roman poets. Roman Satura was a formal literary genre rather than being simply clever, humorous critique in no particular format. Juvenal wrote in this tradition, which originated with Lucilius and included the Sermones of Horace and the Satires of Persius. In a tone and manner ranging from irony to apparent rage, Juvenal criticizes the actions and beliefs of many of his contemporaries, providing insight more into value systems and questions of morality and less into the realities of Roman life. The author employs outright obscenity less frequently than Martial or Catullus, but the scenes painted in his text are no less vivid or lurid for that discretion. Fourth Delphin edition. In Latin. With notes on this edition by Ludovicus Prateus. Condition: In a calf binding. Externally worn, with loss to the spine and rubbing to the board. Frontboard is missing. Internally, firmly bound. Numerous ink signatures to recto of front free-endpaper. Pages are bright, with just some slight marginal browning and scattered light spotting. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

M. Together with Georgii Buchanani Scoti Poematum Pars Altera (1714) in qua continentur: Franciscanus & Fratres; Elegiarum Liber I; Silvarum Liber I; Hendecasyllabon Liber I; IambonLiber I; Epigrammatum Libri III; Miscellaneorum Liber I; De Sphaera Libri V; Medea & Alcestis (Euripidis Poetae, Traici, Latino carmine redditae); Satyra in Carolum Lotharingum Cardinalem. With an engraving to frontispiece. Three volumes bound in one. In Latin. There are two early editions of Buchanan's works of which this is one: Georgii Buchanani Scoti, Poetarum sui seculi facile principis, Opera Omnia, in two vols. fol. edited by Thomas Ruddiman (Edinburgh, Freebairn, folio, 1715). George Buchanan (1506- 1582) was a Scottish historian and humanist scholar. He was part of the Monarchomach movement. For mastery of the Latin language, Buchanan has seldom been surpassed by any modern writer. His style is not rigidly modelled on that of any classical author, but has a freshness and elasticity of its own. He wrote Latin as if it were his mother tongue. Buchanan also had a rich vein of poetical feeling, and much originality of thought. His translations of the Psalms and of the Greek plays are more than mere versions; his two tragedies, Baptistes and Jephthes, enjoyed a European reputation for academic excellence. His Pompae verses were written for performance at the court entertainments of Mary, including the Offering of the Rustic Gods sung during a masque devised by Bastian Pagez for the baptism of King James. In addition to these works, Buchanan wrote in prose Chamaeleon, a satire in Scots against Maitland of Lethington, first printed in 1711; a Latin translation of Linacre's Grammar (Paris, 1533); Libellus de Prosodia (Edinburgh, 1640); and Vita ab ipso scripta biennio ante mortem (1608), edited by R. Sibbald (1702). His other poems are Fratres Fraterrimi, Elegiae, Silvae, two sets of verses entitled Hendecasyllabon Liber and Iambon Liber; three books of Epigrammata; a book of miscellaneous verse; De Sphaera (in five books), suggested by the poem De sphaera mundi of Joannes de Sacrobosco, and intended as a defence of the Ptolemaic theory against the new Copernican view. The second of his larger works is the History of Scotland, Rerum Scoticarum Historia, completed shortly before his death (1579), and published in 1582. It is remarkable for the power and richness of its style, and of great value for the period personally known to the author, which occupies the greater portion of the book. Condition: In a calf binding. Externally, generally sound but with front board absent, spine label absent, loss to head and tail of spine and rubbing and marks to rear board, with wear to extremities. Rear board held by cords only. Internally, text block firmly bound. Bright but with scattered foxing and handling marks. Overall: GOOD ONLY.
