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

      Lon., (1715).. b/w engravings. 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.

As also of the following Usurpations, and the Glorious and Happy Restoration of the Royal Family Containing Many remarkable particulars and circumstances of those Great Providence's not mentioned by the Earl of Clarenden, or any other Historian; and showing, that no one dissenter of fanatick had the least hand in the first of them. A Relation fit to be imprinted in the Hearts of all true Loyalists, and kept in their Houses for the information of their Children, to shew them how miraculously God protected his Anointed, in order to bless there Kingdoms with his Restoration

      Printed for A. Bettesworth, who is removed from London Bridge to the Red Lyon at Pater-Noster Row and sold by C. King Westminster Hall 1715. London 1715. Modern marble paper covered boards, blue cloth spine with paper title label. 8vo 7½'' x 5''. Containing 79 pages of text with embellished capital letter, header and tail-piece. Newspaper cuttings from The Times pasted to the rear paste downs, cracking between the title page and the first page of text, the paper is not foxed and has only marginal age toning to the edges. Charles II's father, King Charles I, was executed at Whitehall on 30 January 1649, at the climax of the English Civil War. Although the Parliament of Scotland proclaimed Charles II King of Great Britain and Ireland in Edinburgh on 6 February 1649, the English Parliament instead passed a statute that made any such proclamation unlawful. England entered the period known as the English Interregnum or the English Commonwealth, and the country was a de facto republic, led by Oliver Cromwell. Cromwell defeated Charles II at the Battle of Worcester on 3 September 1651, and Charles fled to mainland Europe. Cromwell became virtual dictator of England, Scotland and Ireland, and Charles spent the next nine years in exile in France, the United Provinces and the Spanish Netherlands. A political crisis that followed the death of Cromwell in 1658 resulted in the restoration of the monarchy, and Charles was invited to return to Britain. On 29th May 1660, his 30th birthday, he was received in London to public acclaim. After 1660, all legal documents were dated as if he had succeeded his father as king in 1649. Charles II was popularly known as the Merry Monarch, in reference to both the liveliness and hedonism of his court and the general relief at the return to normality after over a decade of rule by Oliver Cromwell and the Puritans. Charles's wife, Catherine of Braganza, bore no live children, but Charles acknowledged at least twelve illegitimate children by various mistresses. As illegitimate children were excluded from the succession, he was succeeded by his brother James. Member of the P.B.F.A.

        THE CASE OF CHARLES LORD BALTEMORE [sic], A MINOR, WITH RELATION TO HIS GOVERNMENT OF MARYLAND [caption title]

      [London? 1715].. Small folio broadsheet. Printed docket title on verso. Antique-style three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Some very minor foxing, else near fine. 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' 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 the 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.

        THE CASE OF THE PEOPLE CALLED QUAKERS, WITH RESPECT TO MANY OF THEIR FRIENDS IN SOUTH- BRITAIN, AND THEIR FRIENDS IN GENERAL IN NORTH-BRITAIN, WHO CONSCIENTIOUSLY SCRUPLE THE TAKING OF THE PRESENT AFFIRMATION

      [London? 1715].. Broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Moderate toning and foxing. Very good. In 1696, after experiencing decades of exclusion and imprisonment for conscientiously refusing to take loyalty and court oaths, Parliament granted Quakers the right to take a "solemn affirmation" in legal situations in place of an actual oath. Over the next two decades numerous Quakers objected to the invocation of God's name in the official affirmation and refused it as they had the oath. In 1715 a bill was under consideration in Parliament to renew indefinitely the Quakers' right to the affirmation. The Quaker authors of the present petition support the bill, but ask that it be amended with a revised affirmation that does not include the name of God. ESTC lists copies at four institutions: British Library, Library of the Religious Society of Friends, National Library of Scotland, and Oxford. SMITH, FRIENDS' BOOKS II, p.265 (listing its imprint at "about 1721").

Pages are browned. This is a polemic against the Sabbateans: against Nechemya Hayon and his works and against the essentials of the Sabbatean faith by R. David Nieto, Rabbi of the Sephardic Congregation of London. Vinograd THESAURUS volume 2, page 364, London number 27. (Hayun controversy). 8vo. With Spanish. Steinschneider 4834,2 Column 882. Vinograd London number 28. Cecil Roth LONDON number 7, Steinschneider 4834,1 column 882. NIETO, DAVID (1654 1728), philosopher and haham of the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue in London (1701 1728). Having studied medicine at the University of Padua, Nieto functioned as dayyan, preacher and physician in Leghorn before going to London. He was proficient in languages and an astronomer of some repute. His calendar (1717) served the London community until the 19th century as a guide for the Sabbath and festivals. His works indicate that he was fully aware of the religious currents and crosscurrents of his time, including *Spinozism, Deism (see conceptions of *God), and Shabbateanism. MATTEH DAN (1714), his magnum opus, devoted to a defense of the Oral Law against the attacks of ex Marranos to whom the rabbinic tradition was both novel and unacceptable, has frequently been reprinted as a defense of rabbinic Judaism (last edition: Jerusalem, 1958). ESH DAT (1715) was directed against the Shabbatean heresiarch, Nehemiah Hiyya Hayon. Previously, Nieto had published PASCALOGIA (1702), dealing with the date of the Christian Easter in relation to that of the Jewish Passover, and DE LA DIVINA PROVIDENCIA (1704). The latter was an elaboration of a sermon Nieto had delivered to combat the deistic notion of a "Nature" apart from God Nieto identified Nature with God; and, although he made it clear that he had NATURA NATURANS, and not NATURA NATURATA (see *Spinoza) in mind, he was accused of Spinozistic leanings. Nevertheless, "Hakham Zevi" Ashkenazi (cf. his responsum number 18) ruled in his favor. Nieto's REPLY TO THE ARCHBISHOP OF CRANGANOR, published posthumously in 1729, controverts the christological interpretation of the Bible. In his writings, Nieto gives evidence of wide reading in science and the humanities. He argues for the compatibility of Judaism and scientific investigations. Nieto is also one of the very few Jewish theologians who used the argument de consensu gentium to establish the dogmas of God's existence and of retribution. BIBLIOGRAPHY: I.

        Sefer Shaar Ora Sharey Orah

      Zeligman Reis, Elizabeth, New Jersey 1715 - Sha¿arei Orah, a work roughly contemporaneous with the publication of the Zohar, was written by the Spanish kabbalist Joseph Gikatilla towards the end of the 13th century. It has served countless generations of aspiring students as a systematic primer guide of Kabbalah, to the systematic study of the Sefiroth (Divine emanations) and their code names, with Malchuth (Kingdom) as the primary, and Keter (Crown) as the final Sefirah. It is an exposition of Kabbalistic symbolism and the designations of the Sephorith. Joseph Gikatilla (Chiquatilla) (1248- c.1325) was a disciple of the founder of the school of ¿Prophetic kabbalah,¿ Abraham Abulafia, and a close colleague of Moses de Leon of Guadalajara (who publicized the Zohar). Gikatilla composed some of the most detailed, yet lucid, expositions of Kabblistic concepts. Indeed R. Chaim of Volozhin recommended it to his students as an important introduction to the arcane wisdom of Kabbalah. Gikatilla was the originator of the doctrine equating the infinite Ein Sof with the first of the Ten Sephiroth. Vinograd THESAURUS v. 2, page 10, Offenbach imprint number 13 (kabala) . Very good modern full leather binding with raised bands and gilt lettering on spine. Remains of old marbled paper on the earlier binding are bound in. 116 leaves.

        A Treatise of the hypochondriack and hysterick passions, vulgarly call'd the hypo in men and vapours in women; in which the symptoms, causes, and cure of those diseases are set forth

      London: Dryden Leach...and sold by Charles Rivington, 1715. Second edition. Hardcover. 8vo. pp. xxiv, 280. Full modern calf, blind tooled after early Cambridge style with a dark brown center panel. Pages are generally clean with some scattered marginal foxing. Name written in an old hand on front free end paper - "John Campbell Hooke." First edition appeared in 1711. Mandeville's treatise was "possibly the first psychiatric self-help book" (Norman Sale Catalogue). Hunter and Macalpine state: "This was the first book on minor mental maladies 'writ by way of information to patients' rather than 'to teach other practitioners.'" The book is written as a dialogue between doctor and patient. The author even discusses his own bout with melancholy which caused him to imagine that he had syphilis. [Hunter and Macalpine, p.296; Blake NLM, p.285; Norman Sale Catalog 641; Laehr II, p.241].

        [English Channel] Canalis inter Angliæ et Galliæ Littora. Pasecaert van 't Canaal tusschen Engeland en Vranckryck

      [Amsterdam: Renard, 1715 or 1739]. Copper-engraved sea chart, with full orginal colour, in very good condition. 21 1/2 x 24 3/4 inches. A highly decorative sea chart of the English Channel, by the master-engraver Renard. The marine atlases of 17th and 18th century Holland were best sellers. The nation that led the world in overseas commerce also led in the arts of engraving and cartography. Plus, there was a large audience of mariners and mariners' parents, who needed to study the obscure straits and recently discovered island groups their sons were seeing. Louis Renard first published Atlas de la Navigation, et du Commerce qui se fait dans toutes les parties du monde in 1715. It was re-issued unchanged by the Ottens in 1739. The charts were printed from plates made by Frederick de Wit in 1675, Orbis Maritimus ofte Zee Atlas. These were corrected by Renard, using, primarily, van Keulen.

Edition Originale de ce recueil curieux divisé en deux parties parues à un an d'écart, et consacré à la question du mariage des intellectuels. L'ouvrage de Wagner, publié sous le pseudonyme d'Irénée Carpentier, est une collection de notices biographiques sur les savants célibataires. On y trouve à la suite la première édition du traité de Mellemann sur le mariage des érudits, selon lequel ces derniers n'ont pas de raisons de fuir l'union matrimoniale, et la lettre de Heinsius où il décrit les qualités d'une femme convenant à un savant. "Carpenterius wrote surveys of celibate scholars. To these was added the disquisition on the marriage of a learned man by Mellemann who believes that there is no reason for learned man to fly from marriage. And indeed there is annexed the letter of Daniel Heinsius about wether and what sort of wife a learned man should marry. This argument weakens the case since it establishes such requirements of the wife, of the most extraordinary kind, and also so many, and such severe rules which will not meet with the women's compliance" (Holtzmüller).

        [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 method 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.

His sonatas are in the Italian style of Corelli and are generally of the sonata da chiesa type... The bass parts are more independent than those of John Loeillet of London, not only in the fugal second movements, where they may play an equal part, but also in the slow movements, where they often have their own rhythmic patterns throughout the movement; his basses often start a movement with two or three bars solo before the recorder enters. Loeillet de Gant had a stronger contrapuntal sense than his two cousins; occasionally his fugal movements have clearly differentiated countersubjects but they lack the skill shown by many of his contemporaries. Unlike John Loeillet, Loeillet de Gant ornamented many of his slow movements in the French manner, with flourishes of demisemiquavers and notes perdues (the ‘little note that does not enter into the bar'."

        This map of South America

      London., [1715]. to The Right Honourable Charles, Earl of Sunderland.....one of Her Majesties Principal Secretaries of State.... 2 sheets joined. Size: 600 x 975 mm. Copperplate engraving with original outline colour. Some skilful paper restoration to map folds and to worm holes. Very good condition. A large scale and very handsome early eighteenth century map of South America by the highly regarded and prolific cartographer; Herman Moll. Moll was a German émigré, who settled in London around 1680. His map of South America provides a surprising wealth of knowledge, comment and detail, with the notable exceptions of Amazonia, of Patagonia and the interior of Brazil which he leaves mostly blank. He embellishes his central map with two large and highly decorative cartouches - one of the Spanish sliver mines of Potosi in Peru, the other being the interesting title cartouche that features erupting volcanoes, three native inhabitants, one of whom is wealthy, plus numerous ingots of gold. There is also an elaborate baroque style dedication to The Earl of Sunderland. The prevailing Trade Winds and the assorted islands that inhabit both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans are shown prominently.

        Lezioni Accademiche

      Florence: Jacopo Guiducci & Santo Franchi, 1715. First edition of 12 collected lectures composed for the Academia della Crusca, posthumously published; “an important summary of Torricelli’s theories,” including reprints of his important letters on the barometer. Torricelli (1608-47) was Galileo’s pupil and secretary, succeeding him as professor of mathematics at Florence. Calling himself “a Galileist by profession and sect,” Torricelli was the first in Rome to make a careful study of Galileo’s Dialogo. The extensive preface reprints the two letters to Michelangelo Ricci in which Torricelli discusses atmospheric pressure and reports on the 1643 research that led to the invention of the barometer. “His experiments provide the first strong refutation of the generally held view of the impossibility of a vacuum” (Parkinson, Breakthroughs. See further for a more detailed account of the barometric experiments). “From the point of view of physics, the lectures on the force and impact and on wind are of particular interest. In the former he said that he was reporting ideas expressed by Galileo in their informal conversations, and there is no lack of original observations…” (DSB XIII.438-39). “Chapter 7 on the movement of winds is a pioneer contribution in the field of meteorology explaining in detail their origin in atmospheric changes and refuting the contemporary theory that they issued from the earth” (Roberts and Trent p. 322). Lessons two through four treat percussion, one of Galileo’s favourite problems. Other lessons are devoted to mathematics, military architecture, etc. Tommasso Bonaventuri (d. 1731) includes a biography of Torricelli in the prefatory material. The attractive portrait of the 40-year-old Torricelli, which was engraved after Anichini’s 1647 portrait, is decorated by a cartouche displaying a clever anagram of Evangelista Torricellius: “En virescit Galilaeus alter.”* Cinti169; Norman 2088; Dibner 149; Roberts and Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 322; Riccardi II.544; Sparrow 190.. Large 4to., 49, (1) pp., (1) f., 96 ff., with 1 engraved author portrait signed Pietro Anichini, with 3 woodcut illustrations in the text. “Imprimatur” leaf misbound following preliminaries. Bound in contemporary cartonnage, laid down. Scattered waterstaining, upper corners of later leaves worn; nonetheless, generally very good, with portrait very fresh.

        A Second Tale Of A Tub

      London, UK: J. Roberts, 1715 Book. Fair-. Hardcover. Presume 1st. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" 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. We will provide delivery confirmation and insurance, where possible, at our expense..

Homann first printed this map in 1714, including it in his Atlas Novus. That year, Alexander Spotswood, the Lt. Governor of Virginia, founded Germanna, a colony for German immigrants on the banks of the Rapidan River, identified on the map as "Germantown / Teutsche Statt". English settlers had proven reticent to migrate to the colony's interior, leaving it vulnerable to French and native encroachment. Spotswood hoped that a wave of German immigration would act as a protective bulwark for Virginia, while also making him a fortune from related property speculation. While Virginia is geographically given the place of honour in the centre of the map, the art of persuasion is principally conveyed by the large title cartouche occupying the lower right of the map. Surrounding an open scallop shell, the iconography of Utopia is presented with blazing intensity. Natives, shown as "noble savages", in the manner of Theodore De Bry, offer their wares. Well- attired Europeans are shown enjoying a realm bursting with gold, kegs of libations, fish, produce and exotic animals. An opportunity to experience such a paradise must have appealed to Homann's intended audience. Importantly, while Virginia is the focus, the map embraces a vast portion of the eastern seaboard, from South Carolina to Connecticut, and is geographically quite conservative, save for the appearance of part of an impossibly large and misplaced Lake Erie in the upper left corner, and the imaginary lake "Apalache Lacus" in the lower left. One of the most celebrated cartographers of his day, Johann Baptist Homann established the most successful German publishing house of the eighteenth century. His prolific business, which was inherited by his family after his death, dominated Germany's map market for over a century, and produced some of the finest maps and atlases of the age. He established himself in Nuremberg, and by 1715 was appointed Geographer to the Emperor. After Homann's death, the business was taken over by his son, Johann Christoph. From 1730, the firm was entrusted to a committee of family members, the Homann Heirs, who published maps and atlases for the next two generations, maintaining the high standards set by Johann Baptist.

        Observationes In Tripartitum Opus Juris Consuetudinarii Inclyti

      1715. [Manuscript]. [Kingdom of Hungary]. Observationes In Tripartitum Opus Juris Consuetudinarii Inclyti Regum Hungariae per Commissionem Systematicam in Arlo 24. 1715 Fundatum hoc 1717 Anno Posony Celebratum, Elaborate. [Arlo, Hungary, 1715-1717, 1726]. [101, 9 blank, 32 pp.] Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary paneled calf, ties lacking. Moderate rubbing to boards, heavier rubbing to extremities with wear to spine and corners, rear hinge partially cracked, two leaves at rear of text detached, occasional worming to margins with no loss to text, contemporary armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Some toning to interior, text in neat secretarial hand. The second group of notes, 32 pp., are dated 1726. * Two sets of student notes on the Tripartitum. Compiled in 1514 by Istvan Werboczy [c.1465-1541], a Hungarian jurist and statesman, this collection of early customary laws, though never incorporated formally, was regarded as the second pillar of the Hungarian constitution. It was a de facto law-book of Hungary until 1848. According to the doctrine of the Holy Crown, which appeared in the Tripartitum, the king and the legally equal noblemen formulated the "corpse of the Holy Crown," which symbolized the Hungarian state. This manuscript is one such effort, in the early eighteenth century, to coordinate the Tripartitum with Hungary's constitutional statutes.

Med en hyllningsvers undertecknad Thorlefus Haltorius. Warmholtz skriver: "rätta författaren, säger Torfæus, i sit företal, vara en magister Gualterus, hvilkens arbete han på sit sätt öfversat; och bragt i detta skick." Arbetet rör den danska sagokungen "Rolf Krake", omnämnd i bl.a. "Beowulf". Exemplaret har uppenbarligen förvärvats av den kände samlaren Sigfrid Lorentz Gahm Persson (1725-94) under dennes studietid i Uppsala. Han blev sedan kammarskrivare vid Krigskollegiet och beskrivs av Carlander som "historisk samlare". Han använde all sin lediga tid till att samvetsgrant avskriva historiska och biografiska urkunder i arkiven, inte minst om hemtrakterna i Småland. Hans fina bibliotek såldes efter hans död 1794 under hand av änkan enligt tryckt katalog. Virgin köpte boken från Thulin & Ohlson i Göteborg

        Praeludia botanica ad publicas plantarum exoticarum demonstrationes dicta in Horto Medico, cum demonstrationes exoticarum 3 Octobris 1701, & 29 Maji 1702. ex auctoritate Nobilissimorum & Amplissimorum D. Consulum auspicatur. His accudent plantarum exoticarum, in praeludiis botanicis recensitarum, icones & descriptiones

      Lugduni Batavorum (Leiden), J. du Vivie, 1715. 4to (25.1 x 20.2 cm), 4 ll., 86 pp., with 33 engravings pasted on folded leaves (one double-sized). Rebacked contemporary half goatskin with original speckled boards and original hand-stamped flyleaves.* A very rare, important and well illustrated book on exotic plants from - mainly - the Cape Province, most of which had not been described or illustrated before. Written by the professional botanist Caspar Commelin (1668-1731). Most of the species figured are succulents & cacti. For the first time the Geranium Africanum is figured, now being perhaps the most popular cultivated plant in numerous varieties. The first edition of 1703 is quite rare. But this 1715 edition may be even rarer. It is possible that this actually is a 1703 edition "updated" by the (new) publisher with a new title page alone, as often done in the 18th century. A slightly different paper for the title page supports this theory. Several of the plates have been cleaned and some rather vague waterstaining in the bottom part of the text. New spine, some expert repairs to boards. The plates were pasted on folding leaves according to the publisher's instructions on p. [86]. The sometimes missing unsigned gathering between pp. 64 and 67 is present. ADDED in the same volume is J. Schreber, Plantarum verticillatatum unilabiatarum genera et species. Lipsiae, S. Crusius, 1774. 5 ll., LXXV pp., and one large folding engraving. Identical to the 1773 edition. Both publications are rare. For the latter see Pritzel, 8399, 8400; Stafleu and Cowan, 11.131A, for the Commelin see Nissen BBI, 388; Pritzel, 1837; Stafleu and Cowan, 1185.
