        An Enquiry into The State of the Union of Great Britain, and The Past and Present State of the Trade and Publick Revenues thereof.

      London: printed for A. and W. Bell, and J. Watts; and sold by B. Barker and C. King [& 2 others in London],, 1717. By the Wednesday's Club in Friday-street. Octavo (192 x 115 mm). Contemporary calf, library mark at foot of unlettered spine with raised bands. Ownership inscription and shelf mark to pastedown. Calf dry and rubbed, extremities worn, front free endpaper loosening, pages toned with some light foxing, a few pages lightly creased. A very good copy. First edition, written by William Paterson (1658–1719), founder of the Bank of England and projector of the Darien scheme. In An Enquiry into the State of the Union, Paterson – using the fictional "Mr May" as his mouthpiece – considers the effects of the Anglo-Scottish union of 1707 on English trade and commerce, as well as the best means of paying off the national debt. His arguments and opinions are presented as a series of conversations held by the imaginary Wednesday Club, who supposedly gathered in Friday-street, Cheapside and conducted discussions on current financial affairs under Paterson's direction; though his biographer, Saxe Bannister, has expressed doubt over the veracity of the anecdote, it was historically believed that the Bank of England was created as the result of a Wednesday Club debate. A Scottish politician and banker himself, Paterson was a strong advocate of the union with England and played an important part in the arrangement of the public accounts in the Treaty. He was employed in London and Edinburgh as part of the "team that calculated the compensatory 'equivalent' for Scotland upon being subject to English customs and excise rates" (ODNB), and spent much time in Edinburgh campaigning as a pro-union propagandist for Robert Harley's government. His final significant contribution to national finance reform was to suggest measures to reduce national debt: these became Walpole's Sinking Fund (1716–7), several elements of which he discusses in this work. This copy has the rare initial blank, lacking in the British Library, Kress, and Sraffa copies.

        Primera parte de las guerras de Cerdeña, y Sicilia. Reflexiones militares del Exmo S.or Marques de la Mina, Conde de Pezuela.

      [Spain] [later 18th cent.] - MS, 2 vols., (complete thus), 8vo., pp. [424]; [325]. First title-page decorated with red, yellow and green ink, one heading to first vol. with similar decorative scheme. New f.f.e.p. to vol. I, a very good manuscript in contemporary vellum boards. An important soldier's account of the War of the Quadruple Alliance mainly in Sardinia and Sicily (1717-1720), it existed only in manuscript until its first printing, with other works by the author, in 1898. The evidence of other manuscripts (cf. CCPB), show the text (complete thus) to have been circulating, in volumes such as the present, in the 1770s and 1780s. The Marques de la Mina (1690-1767) fought in the War of the Quadruple Alliance and later held the important position of Captain-General (i.e. governor) of Catalonia, from 1749 until his death. He dates the present work Barcelona, 1755. His 18th-century printed oeuvre comprised a propagandist bifolium (c.1744), and a work published three times called 'Maximas de la guerra' (1767). The text is marked by its thoroughness in describing a difficult war. This may explain its long existence in manuscript - it could be kept as a 'privileged' text for the education of a trusted elite. The author is interested in theory and art of war: in his prologue he discusses military literature, a subject he takes up again at end (referring here to a professor at the important school of mathematics in Barcelona, which he started). The chapters throughout include reflections. Chapter 88 (volume I) concerns the attempted Jacobite invasion of Scotland (with Spanish support) of 1719: "Expedicion malograda de Escocia".

        Russia Bianca o Moscovia...

      Carta della Russia ad opera di Paolo Petrini che prese ad esempio il lavoro del Sanson, come dichiarato nel decorativo cartiglio nell'angolo in alto a sinistra. Attenta la raffigurazione dei confini con i territori limitrofi (Polonia, Svezia e la Gran Tartaria) e della divisione interna. Sempre nel cartiglio si legge una curiosa descrizione degli abitanti "Li moscoviti Sono di statura grandi e robusti...nelli loro affari sono Feminieri perché ve ne sono delle Belle,...la loro Bevanda è acquavita..." e conclude lodandone le doti come cacciatori e buoni soldati. La carta fa parte dell'opera "Atlante partenopeo overo raccolte di tavole geografiche degli autori piu classici et accurati corrette et aumentate secondo le relationi piu moderne da Paolo Petrini" del 1700 [-1717]. Rara. Coloritura confinale all'acquerello, coeva. Ottima conservazione, fatta eccezione per la presenza di due antichi restauri al margine inferiore

Verey's most famous garden design was that of her own house, Barnsley House, near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. In 1970 she opened the garden for one day to the public for the National Gardens Scheme but eventually it was open 6 days per week to accommodate the 30,000 annual visitors. In 1984 when her husband David died, Rosemary Verey began designing gardens for American and British clients. Most notable are HRH the Prince of Wales, and Sir Elton John, Princess Michael of Kent, the Marquess of Bute and the New York Botanical Garden. See Wikipedia.

        The Works of Mr Alexander Pope

      London: W. Bowyer, for Jacob Tonson at Shakespeare's Head in the Strand, and Bernard Lintot between the Temple-Gates in Fleetstreet, 1717. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Very Good hardcover first edition. No DJ (ha, ha). This is the quarto version (alphabetical letters appear at the bottom of every 4th page as a guide to the bookbinder), 11.75" x 7.75", of Alexander Pope's iconic masterpiece of marketing and poetic achievement. You may see this volume bundled (even in upscale auction houses such as Bauman's) as volume one of four volumes, but that is an anachronism! Pope gambled on an audacious move in 1717 by publishing his "Collected Works" at the raw young age of 29. He was already a significant force in the English literary world, but, just as today, only venerated masters at the ends of their careers published "Collected Works." Pope broke that mold in 1717, but there was no volume 2 or 3 or 4 because he had written nothing else at that point! Nothing! It was a marketing ploy that worked beautifully for him. He was regarded from that year onward as an author with classic status. Several new works were published here for the first time, including "Eloisa to Abelard," and "Elegy to the Memory of an Unfortunate Lady." Truly a landmark volume in the history of literature and publishing. Folding frontis, [32], 408 pp. Early calf boards, rebacked, boards with wear and chipping to corners and edges. Frontis with long closed tear and one old repair to verso, 19th c. ownership signatures and dates to title page and front end paper, some light foxing and toning.

        The Holy Bible, Conteyning the Old Testament, and the New: Newly Translated

      First edition of the enormous Baskett Bible, a "magnificent edition, printed in large type" (DMH) and "one of the most beautiful Bibles ever produced" (Campbell, Bible: The Story of the King James Version). "Only Baskerville's Bible (Cambridge, 1763) is its equal among English Bibles for beauty of type, impression, and paper, and the richness of its decoration gives the Vinegar Bible a unique distinction" (Carter, The History of the Oxford University Press). This is the first and greatest Bible printed by John Baskett, the leading publisher of English Bibles in the first half of the 18th century. From 1710 to 1743 Baskett had a monopoly on Bible publishing in England and Scotland. Baskett's patron Arthur Charlett described the "proposed splendour" of this work: "We are here printing a most Magnificent English Bible, some very few Copys will be in Vellum for a Present to the Queen & my Ld Treasurer. You know Dr Wallis and Dr Gregory pronounced Mr Dennison absolutely the best Corrector they ever met with. If this Work have not the Advantage of his nice Ey at least in giving the first Directions, and settling the Distances of Lines & Words and the great Art in a beautiful and Uniforme Division of Syllables, with several other minute Regulations, invisible to vulgar Eys, the Work will want of its proposed Splendour . . . Mr Denison says the Fount of letters, is the very best He ever saw, and you know his Ey examines all the Tayls sides & Topps of letters &c. To do justice to Mr Basket, He spares no Cost nor Pains" (quoted by Norton, Textual History of the King James Bible). Despite its typographical beauty, the Baskett Bible included shocking typographical errors. The best-known of these gives the edition its most famous name, the Vinegar Bible, from the misprint "the parable of the vinegar" for "vineyard" in a heading in Luke XX. One buyer wrote to Charlett that the Bible bought for use at Winchester Cathedral was found to have errors in two consecutive chapters and added that "we have reason to fear that the whole edition is faulty." He warned, "Fame has fastened on the errors: what might have been one of the glories of English printing is one of its curiosities." Some called the enormous Bible a "Baskett-ful of errors." This handsome example of the Vinegar Bible is in a splendid period goatskin binding in unrestored condition. Provenance: W. A. Foyle, with bookplate, sold Christie's, 11 July 2000, lot 499. Darlow, Moule, and Herbert, Historical Catalogue of Printed Editions of the English Bible 1525-1961 942 variant A. Darlow, Moule, and Herbert identify two distinct editions (A and B), observing that the engravings in the B edition often "represent allegorical subjects, and others are merely ornamental pieces, and do not, as in A, generally illustrate Bible incidents" Folio (19 1/2 x 1 1/4 in.). Title and calendar printed in red and black, ruled in red throughout. Engraved frontispiece, vignettes, engraved head-pieces and initials. Blank lower corner torn from title, some browning, a few tears, mostly marginal. A fine contemporary Oxford binding of gilt-tooled black goatskin, covers elaborately paneled with a central lozenge enclosing a star, large corner-pieces with three dropping leaves, a pyramid built up from small tools on each side, spine compartments tooled with sprays, wavy-lines, semi- circular tools, and large corner-pieces, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Minimal restoration. A beautiful copy. One contemporary record suggests that the price for a well-bound copy such as this was a princely £4. 7. 6.

        Ex antiquitate orientali de Kinaeis.

      Jena, [Catharina Magdalena] Nisius für Johann Volkmar Marckgraf, 1717. - 4to. (2), 40 pp.; interleaved with 21 ff., containing contemporary handwritten notes throughout. Contemporary red brove-varnish paper wrappers. First edition of Murray' master disputation: the author's interleaved personal copy with his extensive autograph revisions for the second, significantly expanded edition which would be published by Bohn in Hamburg in 1718 (an octavo volume of 136 pages). The thesis discusses the Kenites, a nomadic clan in the ancient Levant, whose lands God promised to the descendants of Abraham: "On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: the Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites (Gen 15:18-19). "Their origin is not known: some locate it in Arabia, others in the Philistine states or in Judah" (cf. Zedler XV, 452). The Kenites' possible origin from the Arabian Peninsula (Arabia Felix) is discussed on p. 24 in particular (with numerous corrections and amendments in the margin and additional notes on the "Sinus Arabicus" and the "mare rubrum" on the following interleaf). Rare in all editions: no copy in trade records internationally. - Murray (1695-1771), of Scottish descent, was born in Memel in East Prussia. After gaining his Master's degree with the present work, he travelled to Hamburg and then, with his expanded book-length thesis to recommend him, on to England. After his return to the continent in 1719 he lectured in Kiel before embarking on a career as a preacher in Holstein, Stockholm, and Uppsala (cf. Jöcher/A.). - Murray's extensive handwritten revisions, as indeed the printed text, are in Latin with occasional interspersions in Greek and Hebrew. Somewhat browned throughout due to paper, but a charming survival. VD 18, 1039186X. Jöcher/A. V, 224f., 1. OCLC 47167605. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      presso Michele Hertz. Folio piccolo (mm 328x225); carte 4 non num., pagine 480 con centinaia di silografie nel testo raffiguranti le piante, carte 14 non num. di indice; frontespizio in rosso e nero con vignetta silografica con motto "Portum fortiter occupa" con l'immagine di un vascello entro cornice ornamentale e figure allegoriche, capolettera entro vignette. Mezza pelle di inizio Ottocento con piatti marezzati, titolo in oro al dorso con filetti dorati. L'autore, Castore Durante fu medico e cittadino romano (Gualdo Tadino 1529 - Viterbo 1590). Celebre opera, che, dopo la prima pubblicazione del 1585, fu ristampata in otto edizioni di grande successo, fino al 1718 in diverse lingue. La nostra edizione del 1717 è rara, sebbene presente in alcune biblioteche. L'opera riunisce più di 900 specie ordinate alfabeticamente secondo il nome volgare; il ricco apparato iconografico, di notevole fascino, probabile opera di Isabella Parasole, una delle più note artiste del tardo Rinascimento, accompagna le descrizioni dei nomi in lingua greca, latina, araba, francese, spagnola e tedesca, ed è di supporto alle descrizioni nel riconoscimento dei vegetali.Il testo è completo delle revisioni e appendici, aggiornato dell'inserimento delle descrizioni relative alle piante esotiche che dopo il 1585 entrarono a far parte dell'uso farmacologico e alimentare. Durante, intitola l'opera Herbario nuovo, intendendo soprattutto divulgare le conoscenze di materia medica tramandate dall'antichità fino al XVI secolo, basate sull'uso dei Semplici, da cui si estraggono i principi attivi dei farmaci del tempo e non solo. Bell'esemplare che presenta tracce di tarlo di varia intensità solo al margine interno senza ledere il testo, fino a pag. 150, ultima carta di indice con antico restauro, carta di rinforzo, saltuarie minime macchioline. Pritzel 2552; Nissen 569.
