        THE WORKS

      London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, 1715. First Printing of the edition prepared by John Hughes n. Hardcover. Spenser in Contemporary Finery as Fine as Fine Can Be. 191 x 121 mm (7 1/2 x 4 3/4").Six volumes. First Printing of the edition prepared by John Hughes. 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

Avec une description des animaux, des fruits, des mineraux, des plantes, &c. Traduite de l'Espagnol de l'Ymca Garcillasso de la Vega, par Jean Baudoin.

      . 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..

"Despite the modest size of his output, comprising six collections of instrumental music and a handful of other authentic works, and its virtual restriction to three genres – solo sonata, trio sonata and concerto – Corelli exercised an unparalleled influence during his lifetime and for a long time afterwards. This influence, which affected form, style and instrumental technique in equal measure, was most closely felt in Italy, and in particular in Rome, where he settled in early manhood, but soon spread beyond local and national confines to become a European phenomenon. As a violinist, teacher of the violin and director of instrumental ensembles Corelli imposed standards of discipline that were unusually strict for their period and helped to lay the groundwork for further progress along the same lines during the 18th century. To Corelli belong equally the distinctions of being the first composer to derive his fame exclusively from instrumental composition, the first to owe his reputation in large part to the activity of music publishers, and the first to produce ‘classic’ instrumental works which were admired and studied long after their idiom became outmoded."

        The ILIAD Of HOMER. Translated by Mr. Pope.

      Printed by W. Bowyer, for Bernard Lintott, 1715 - 1720, London: - Illustrated with plates & maps. Pope, one of the leading literary figures of early 18th C England, enjoyed social success as well, and could count among his friends such great literary figures as Swift, Gay, and Congreve and 'saw much aristocratic society.' Of his character, the D.N.B. comments 'there is, in fact, no more difficult subject for biography, especially in a compressed form. The truest statement seems to be that he was at bottom, as he represents himself in the epistle to Arbuthnot, a man of really fine nature, affectionate, generous, and independent; unfortunately, the better nature was perverted by the morbid vanity and excessive irritability which led him into his multitudinous subterfuges.' It has been commented that Pope could Ôhardly drink tea without a stratagem.Õ His devotion to literature was unremitting, 'he might have rivalled Chaucer in one century, and Wordsworth in another. As it was, his poetry is the essence of the first half of the eighteenth century.' "Idolatry of classical models was an essential part of the religion of men of letters of the day. Many of them, however, could not read Greek, and the old translations of Chapman, Ogilby, and Hobbes were old-fashioned or feeble in style. Many translations from the classics had been executed by Dryden and his school. 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. However, the translation must be considered not as a publisher's speculation, but as a kind of national commission given by the elegant society of the time to their representative poet. The first volume, including the first four books of the 'Iliad,' was issued in June 1715. The next three volumes appeared in 1716, 1717, and 1718, the last volume of the 'Iliad,' delayed by ill-health, family troubles, and the preparation of various indexes, appeared in May 1720."

        "A New and Exact Map of the Dominions of the King of Great Britain on Ye Continent of North America" from The World described; or a New and Correct Sett of Maps

      London, 1715. THE FIRST MAP TO DEMONSTATE THE POTENTIAL COHESION OF THE BRITISH COLONIES IN AMERICA Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: 42" x 25" Reference: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 135. Herman Moll's "New and Exact Map of the Dominions of the King of Great Britain on Ye Continent of North America" was the first large-scale map to show English developments in North America and the first to show the American postal routes. This particular example is particularly notable for its sumptuous original color, which is of a quality rarely seen in English maps from this period. Moll was one of the most well-known cartographers in England in the generation before Thomas Jefferys came to prominence in the mid-eighteenth century. A native of the Netherlands, he came to England around 1680, settling in London, where he established his own shop in 1689. Moll's style grew increasingly distinctive as his career progressed, and his maps remain noted for their elaborate design and clarity of lettering. He was also known for including numerous legends on his maps that give historical information about the geography, inhabitants and general features of the areas shown. Moll's impressive body of maps and atlases constitute some of the finest examples of early British cartography and a summation of British geographical knowledge at the time. Meticulous and finely engraved, this map includes some of the most thorough and exact detail to grace any eighteenth-century map. It is notable for being among the first and most important cartographic documents relating to Anglo-French disputes over the boundaries separating their respective American colonies. It includes insets of Thomas Nairne's important and early map of South Carolina; the English, French and Indian settlements in the Carolinas; and Charleston Harbor. The most striking feature of Moll's map, however, is the celebrated depiction of Niagara Falls with beavers at work, occupying an inset at the right margin. The view of Niagara Falls, without the beavers, was first published in Utrecht in 1697, as part of Louis Hennepin's "Nouvelle découverte d'un tres grand Pays Situé dans l'Amérique." The following year an English version was printed and, in 1713, Nicholas de Fer, cartographer to the French King, copied Hennepin's view and added the famous beavers on his "Carte de La Mer du Sud & de La Mer du Nord." The imagery was included not just because of its charm but because beaver pelts were a significant part of a highly successful American fur trade - an industry that was used to promote settlement in America. The industrious nature of beavers, moreover, symbolized the notion that control of the land -- and the wealth that resulted -- was brought about by hard work.. Book.

Ex-libris manuscrito de anterior poseedor en todos los volúmenes. Magnífica edición de los diarios del explorador William Dampier (1651-1715), el primer británico en explorar algunas partes de Nueva Holanda (Australia) y el primero en circunnavegar el mundo en tres ocasiones. Considerado el primer historiador natural de Australia, se le define tambén como el mejor explorador-aventurero, a medio camino entre James Cook y sir Walter Raleigh. La primera edición de los diarios del New Voyage Round the World es de 1697 y causó verdadera sensación tras lo cual, en 1699, se le encomendó la exploración de la costa este australiana. Entre ese año y 1701 escribió una crónica de la expedición, A Voyage to New Holland, y se dedicó de nuevo a la piratería, una actividad con la que siempre convivió. Con el estallido de la Guerra de la Independencia española, Dampier sirvió en el barco corsario Duke como responsable de navegación: la expedición amasó una fortuna considerable, pero nuestro hombre falleció en Londres antes de recibir su parte. Personaje controvertido -se le juzgó por crueldad- no puede ponerse en duda que sus observaciones y análisis de la naturaleza tuvieron gran relevancia y ayudaron a Charles Darwin y Alexander voon Humboldt a desarrollar sus teorías. Dampier realizó también algunas innovaciones en el ámbito de la navegación que fueron estudiadas, entre otros, por James Cook. Pero sin duda son sus notas sobre la fauna y flora del noroeste de Australia las que despertaron mayor interés entre los estudiosos. Es, además, autor de un discurso sobre los vientos. Nuestra edición ofrece la compilación de su obra (el Viaje alrededor del mundo, con el suplemento, el Viaje a Australia, el Discurso sobre los vientos.) pero, además, incluye otras obras de interés. Así, en el volumen V encontramos el viaje de Dampier al que se añaden: 1) el viaje del capitán Wood a través el estrecho de Magallanes; 2) el diario de la expedición del capitán Sharp; 3) el viaje alrededor del mundo del capitán Cowley; 4) el viaje por levante de Mr. Robert. La obra se complementa con magníficos grabados que contienen mapas, vistas de ciudades, tipos, flora y fauna de los lugares visitados. La Biblioteca Nacional de Francia sólo recoge los vol. II y III de esta edición. viajes, siglo XVII-XVIII, viajes alrededor del mundo, exploraciones Àsia meridional i el subcontinent indi Libros antiguos anteriores a 1830 francés [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
