Berlin: Bey Joh. Andreas Rüdigern privil. Buchhändler, 1715. 935 Seiten, Fadenheftung, Format 10 x 16,4 cm, Ganz-Pergament-Einband der Zeit. * Vor dem Titelblatt des ersten Teils eine gestochene Tafel. Jeder Teil mit eigenem Titelblatt, trotzdem eine fortlaufende Seitenzählung. Die Titelblätter wurden teils bei der Seiten-Nummerierung mitgezählt, teilweise auch nicht. Von daher egeben sich bei der Nummerierung kleine Lücken. Die auf der Rückseite des Titelblatts für den 6. Teil angesprochene "Inliegende Land=Tafel" wurde nicht mit eingebunden. Erhaltung: Keine Mängel. Buchblock und Einband sind fest zusammen, die längere Schnittkante ist wohlgerundet. Der Buchblock absolut fleckenlos. Der Pergament-Einband ohne Einrisse oder andere Beschädigungen. Insgesamt ein sehr gutes und frisches Exemplar. Der einzige Mangel (aber kein echter): Die fliegenden Vorsätze haben sich gelöst, waren wohl zu schwach angeleimt. Ich empfehle aber, sie nicht wieder anleimen, da sich dadurch interessante Einblicke in die handwerkliche Struktur u. Machart des Einbands ergeben. Dessen ungeachtet ist der Einband so gut und solide gearbeitet, daß er auch ohne diese Verleimung ganz genau so stabil dasteht. Sprache: Deutsch [Attributes: First Edition]

BENSON, Willliam
London, 1715. Broadsheet, 13½ x 10 inches. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Disbound. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Small stain, affecting one character of text, toning at upper edge. An interesting assessment of a country squire's income An unrecorded document lobbying Parliament in support of the election of William Benson as MP for Shaftesbury, disclosing the ownership history and financial information on his family estates in Middlesex. William Benson (1682-1754) was a prominent early Whig political writer, politician, amateur architect, and patron of the arts. This broadsheet refers to the election by which Benson would first enter Parliament, by petition, in 1716. In 1718, Benson vacated the seat to replace Christopher Wren as Surveyor General of the Royal Works. He was relieved of that position the following year, after a humiliating incident in which he condemned the chamber of the House of Lords, incorrectly declaring that it was in imminent danger of collapse. An early example 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. No copies recorded by ESTC or OCLC. DNB II, p.261.

[HAMMOND, Thomas]
London, 1715. Broadsheet, 16¼ x 10 inches. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Ornamental initial. Disbound. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of left margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. A petition to Parliament on behalf of Thomas Hammond, "a considerable Trader for Twenty Years last past in Wines, and other Merchandises," asking for public assistance in paying the remainder of his debts to the government. During the War of the Spanish Succession, Hammond suffered major losses to his trade and merchandise, resulting from the sinking of the ships Thomas and Elizabeth near Virginia, the capture of other ships sailing to India, the failures of various merchants, vintners and coopers to pay him, and other "Losses at Home and Abroad." Unable to pay his own debts, Hammond absconded but was caught, imprisoned, and stripped of all his assets. The present document relates this history, tabulating his losses and the amounts he had already paid to his creditors through assets and sureties, and petitions the House of Commons to pass a bill allowing the Treasury to forgive his debts due for customs. Part of the earliest British literature relating to decriminalized bankruptcy, following upon the historic bankruptcy statute of Queen Anne of 1705, which granted the first modern provisions for the release of insolvent debtors from their debts. This is also 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 Br … [Click Below for Full Description]

Homer; Translated by Alexander Pope
Bernard Lintot 1715-26, London. 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 relig … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAINE
[London. Small folio. Bound to style in half calf over marbled paper-covered boards. Ornamental border. Minor foxing. Very good. A project for colonizing Maine in 1715 A rare, early petition relating to British settlement in the eastern part of present-day Maine. The authors refer to petitioning "his Majesty in Council, on the 6th Day of December last, for having a Colony settled between New England and Nova Scotia" with "over one thousand disbanded men" and to be funded with the proceeds of a proposed coinage operation. The only copy of this document listed by OCLC and ESTC is at the New-York Historical Society, which estimates merely that the document was printed during the 1700s. The historical context, the text cited above, and discovery of this broadsheet among similar petitions dating almost exclusively to 1714 and 1715, however, make 1715 an extremely likely date of printing. In the Treaty of Utrecht (1713), the French ceded the land east of the Kennebec River (presumably the area in question here) to the British; this event and the reference to "disbanded soldiers" suggest that the War of the Spanish Succession had recently ended, which it finally did in 1714. George I succeeded Queen Anne in late 1714, meaning that the petitioning of "December last" could not have been earlier than that year. With the new monarchy and a major upheaval in the House of Commons following the general election of 1715, petitionary literature distributed in the lobby of Parliament surged, with this document almost certainly among the examples from that year. The petitioners, evidently of … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Fire]:
[London? 1715].. Broadside. Dbd. Small folio. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Some foxing. Very good. A rare leaflet lobbying Parliament on behalf of British merchants who had recently lost £22,500 worth of sugar, ginger, oil, and sarsaparilla in a great fire. The merchants had just recently imported the goods, paying approximately £3000 in customs. In the present document the merchants petition the House of Commons to allow them to import goods duty-free up to the value of the customs of the goods destroyed. This is among the earliest examples 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.

[Withall, Benjamin]:
[London? 1715].. Small folio broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Some foxing. Very good. A rare political leaflet alleging frauds and abuses by the British Board of Ordnance in 1715, George I's first full year as king. The author, engineer Benjamin Withall, shows that the Office of Ordnance's estimate for land service for 1715, a year of peace, is more than triple that of 1714, the final year of the War of the Spanish Succession. Arguing that the budget should not be much more than one-fifth the present estimate of £170,991, Withall petitions Parliament to allow him to interrogate members of the Board regarding their "strange" and "marvellous" calculation. This 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.

PURSHULL, Conyers
[London, 1715. Broadside. Dbd. Small folio. 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 Early Proposal To Find Longitude; One of Two known CopiesAn extremely rare petitionary leaflet relating to the historic longitude prize, evidently printed during the first two years 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.

STEUART, Sir James
Edinburgh: printed by James Watson. MDCCXV [1715]. folio, with a fine engraved portrait frontispiece of Steuart by George Vertue, title printed in red and black within ruled borders and with large woodcut device, (4) + 340 + 16pp., contemporary panelled calf, neatly rebacked to match, with raised bands and label. A fine, crisp, copy. First edition. Sir James Stewart [or Steuart], of Goodtrees (1635-1713), politician and judge, had, controversially, made a name for himself when he published, in 1669, his most important political treatise, Jus populi vindicatum, or, the people's right to defend themselves and their covenanted religion, vindicated>, in which he combined biblical, natural law, and contractual arguments in support of a private right to violent resistance to tyrannous rulers. He pretty inevitably got into trouble with the government, went into exile, later returning under an alias. Under William III, however, his star rose when he was appointed Lord Advocate of Scotland in 1692. It was in that office that he wrote much of the government's report (1695) on the Glencoe massacre (of Feb. 1692), procured passage of an Act establishing the Scottish East India Company (1695), and drafted Scotland's Habeas Corpus Act (1701). Stewart was 'widely respected not only for legal and political prowess but also for religious devotion and theological and ecclesiastical acumen'. [E. Calvin Beisner in ODNB]. Sir John Nisbet (1610-1688), Lord Dirleton, judge and politician, had been the author of Some doubts and questions in the law> which were edited by Sir William Hamilton of Wh … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Fishing]:
[London? 1715].. Small folio broadsheet. [1]p. plus printed docket title on verso. Dbd. 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 lobsters 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, California State Library, Harvard, and Yale. HANSON 2122.

Tischbein, Johann Friedrich August (1750 Maastricht - Heidelberg 1812) - zugeschrieben
. 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.

Leibniz, Gottfried Wilhelm, philosopher and mathematician (1646-1716).
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Homer; Translated by Alexander Pope
Bernard Lintot 1715-20, London. 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). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
