        The retir’d gardener. In six parts.

      London, J. Tonson 1717 - The retir’d gardener. In six parts. The two first being dialogues between a gentleman and gardener. Containing the methods of making . and improving a fruit and kitchen-garden . The four last parts treat of the manner of . adorning gardens; explaining the art of making and disposing of parterres, arbours or greens, wood-works, arches, columns and other compartments proper for the most beautiful gardens and plantations. London, J. Tonson, 1717. 8vo. [16] + 432 + 8p. Engraved frontispiece by M. van der Gucht after L. Laguerre, 20 engraved plates, woodcuts in text. Contemporary decorative panelled calf; lower spine strengthened. A rich source of information on contemporary horticultural practice, and garden design much influenced by French models. London and Wise owned the celebrated Brompton Park nursery from circa 1688 to 1714, and supplied most of the large estates with plants and trees; the nursery was highly recommended by John Evelyn. Wise was ‘master gardener’to Queen Anne, whilst London travelled the country giving advice on gardens including Chatsworth, Longleat and Castle Howard. The present work is advertised as a translation of two French works (those of François Gentil and Louis Liger) but with ‘several alterations and additions proper for our English culture’. This second edition revised by Joseph Carpenter who became a partner in the nursery in 1714, gives more details of English practice, tree-planting schemes and fruit preferences than the first published 1706 edition, and is considered of more use to the real gardener. There is a list of fruits and catalogue of seeds available at the Brompton nursery. Among the attractive plates are several of parterres, allées and garden layouts with topiary and fountains; arbours and covered walks are illustrated in an elm-entwined portico and a ‘gallery’of hornbeam (the text notes that the English would use lime). A handsome copy in contemporary binding, very faint toning only to one or two leaves. Henrey 990. See also David Green, Gardener to Queen Anne, 1958. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Works of Alexander Pope

      W. Bowyer, for Jacob Tonson at Shakespeare's Head in the Strand, and Bernard Lintot between the Temple-Gates in Fleetstreet, London 1717 - 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.

        Histoire des variations des Eglises protestantes. Avertissemens aux protestans sur les lettres du Ministre Jurieu contre l'Histoire des variations

      Chez Guillaume Desprez et Jean Desessartz, 1717. - Chez Guillaume Desprez et Jean Desessartz, Paris 1717, in-12 (10x17cm), (1) xxxiii (7) 509pp. (27) et (10) 510pp. (30) et (24) 682pp. (2), 3 volumes reliés. - Nuova edizione, dopo l'edizione originale pubblicata nel 1688 in due volumi in 4. Vitello granito completo marrone anticato. Torna con cinque nervi ornati di gioielli e scatole d'oro, parti del titolo e numero del volume di marocchino rosso, evidenziato con tagli calde pizzo. Tutti i bordi rossi. Due tappi di testa sfilacciato, una coda distaccata del primo centro del volume che serve e gli angoli molto leggermente urtato. Alcune delle principali opere di Bossuet, in cui l'autore riassume la polemica contro la chiesa protestante da un concetto chiave: variazione. E per di più variazioni sulla stessa dottrina, dobbiamo dimostrare che la chiesa protestante non può essere la Chiesa di Cristo e custode della fede. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, après l'édition originale parue en 1688 en 2 volumes in 4. Reliure en plein veau brun granité d'époque. Dos à cinq nerfs ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge, coupes soulignées d'une dentelle à chaud. Toutes tranches rouges. Deux coiffes de tête élimées, un tranchefil désolidarisé en queue du premier tome et coins très légèrement émoussés. Unes des oeuvres majeures de Bossuet, dans lequel l'auteur résume les controverses contre l'église protestante par un concept clé : la variation. Les destinées multiples et les variations autour d'une même doctrine doivent nous démontrer que l'église protestante ne saurait être l'église du Christ et le dépositaire de la foi.

        The Holy Bible Containing the Old Testament and the New. Newly Translated and Revised. By His Majesty's Special Command. Appointed to be Read in Churches

The Old Testament ends on Qqqq3 and the New Testament ends with [X]4. No pagination provided Large folio (500 x 312 mm; 10 - 3/4 x 12 - 3/8 inches) Title page dated 1716 is a full page engraving by Sturt after J. Thornhill(?), title page dated 1717 printed in red and black (as is the "Kalendar"), and with engraved illustration of the University by M. Burghers. Each Book has a steel engraved large chapter head illustration and tail piece; numerous engraved initials. Some of the contributors to the illustrations are J. Thornhill, M. Burgers, L. Cheron, and L. Laguerre; Claude du Bose, L. du Guerier, C. Dupui, Cochein, and Michael van der Gucht were the engravers brown leather over thick cardboard, spine with raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt The Bible is printed in two columns of 59 lines. The New Testament has its own title page dated 1716. The interior is in fine condition, with only a very few leaves a little browned, but no torn, ripped, or repaired leaves, and would make an excellent candidate for a new binding and thus becoming a truly splendid copy. The Bible was called by Baskett's contemporaries "a Baskett - ful of errors" because of all the typgraphical errors it contained, and specifically so because of the heading in Luke XX which had a misprint of "vinegar" instead of "vineyard" in the Parable of the Vineyard. However, John Baskerville's King James Bible of 1763 is the only other Bible that experts consider worthy comparisons to Baskett's 1717 Bible for its beauty of type, impression and paper Spine worn with actual spine strip lacking, hinges weak, boards worn with patches of the leather missing. Interior contents largely fine, including the engravings, a few leaves occasionally a bit browned [Herbert 942]

In quegli anni il Muratori accompagnato dal suo allievo e segretario Pietro Gherardi visitò molti archivi pubblici e privati in tutta l'Italia del nord raccogliendo molto materiale che sfociò nella composizione di questa sua prima opera prettamente storica, e divenendo il fondatore della moderna storiografia scientifica.

Old ink number (trimmed) in upper outer corner of title page. Author's name added in contemporary ink manuscript in blank portion of title page above imprint. 19 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this eyewitness account of a naval action off the coast of Morea, in the Peloponnesus, Greece, during the Seventh Ottoman-Venetian War (1714-1718). Venice had lost the Peloponnesus to the Ottomans in 1715, but while she was unable to fight the Turks on land, she was still a power at sea. By 1717 Venice had gained the financial support of Pope Clement XI, and several Catholic rulers sent ships to Venice's aid. The Portuguese sent a small fleet, which arrived at Corfu on June 10 to rendezvous with the Venetians and the Knights of Malta. The author focuses on the preparation of the Portuguese fleet, its commanders, the strategy of the combined fleet, confusion in the Venetian command, and the damages to the Portuguese ships at the Battle of Matapan, on the southern coast of Greece.The battle was a strategically decisive Ottoman victory, since it totally frustrated the Venetian efforts to regain the Peloponnesus. The Ottomans lost no ships compared to three Venetian and allied ships sunk, and much damage done to others.Pedro de Sousa de Castelo Branco (Lisbon, 1678-1755), present at the action described here, is listed as the author by Innocêncio. He signed (in print) the dedication (leaf A2 recto) with the pseudonym D. Inofre Chirino. Castello Branco was a Commendador da Ordem de Christo and served in the army and navy, reaching the rank of general and of governor of Setubal. He was the translator of the Abbé de Vallemont's @Elementos da historia, in 5 volumes, 1734-1751.*** Innocêncio VI, 448-9: "exemplares são raros," with a long discussion of this work. Figanière 402.

Livro muito raro. O Padre António Franco, empenhado na transmissão da memória da sua Ordem, descreve nesta obra as biografias (retiradas das cartas anuas ou registos anuais da Companhia de Jesus) dos padres jesuítas formados nos diversos Noviciados de Lisboa e que se distinguiram nas suas diversas missões pelo mundo. Esta obra está dividida em 4 livros com diversos capítulos cada: Livro I: Descrição do noviciado da Companhia de Jesus e dos seus diversos domicílios em Lisboa. Biografia do Padre M. Simão Rodrigues, terceiro companheiro de Santo Inácio de Loyola e primeiro provincial da Companhia Jesus em Portugal. Biografias dos ?servos de Deus? da Casa de Santo Antão o Velho.

Livro II: Biografias dos Noviços da Casa de São Roque e da de Campolide. Entre estes noviços encontra-se o Padre António de Andrade, que descobriu o Tibete. O Padre António Franco descreve este país e o lamaísmo, apontando a falta de comunicação como a razão pela qual se extinguiu a missão no Tibete após a morte do Padre Andrade. Na biografia do Padre Francisco Pimentel relata a sua missão em Tonquim e a vida dos missionários na China. Livro III: Biografias dos Noviços da Casa do Monte Olivete. Entre estes jesuítas está o Padre André Fernandes, eleito Bispo de Japão e outros padres envolvidos nas missões em Angola (Cuanza) e na Índia (Maduré).

São João de Brito é também biografado neste livro. É um dos mais importantes santos da Igreja Católica, tendo sido dos primeiros a adaptar-se aos povos que ia evangelizar. Morreu como mártir na Índia e era já considerado santo no seu tempo, apesar de apenas ter sido canonizado em 1947 pelo Papa Pio XII. FRANCO, Padre António.

II: [1] f., 687, [1 (blank)] pp., [4] ff.. 1717 Johan de Witt was one of Europe's greatest statesmen of the 17th century: Appointed the "councillor pensionary" (i.e., the political leader) of Holland (1653–72), he successfully led the United Provinces in the First and Second Anglo-Dutch wars (1652–54, 1665–67) while at the same time effectively consolidating the country's position as a formidable commercial and naval power. The present work publishes the resolutions that the States General secretly reached during Witt's years leading the republic, matters being related that would have led to political, diplomatic, or economic trouble or reprisals if publicly known in "real time." Vol. I covers the period 26 February 1653 to 17 December 1658 and II from 17 January 1659 to 20 December 1668. Provenance: From the collection of Frank Marshall Vanderhoof (American scholar, university librarian, private collector; 1919–2005). Contemporary speckled calf, round spine with raised bands; plain sides and gilt spine extra; bindings rubbed, old stains from a liquid on upper areas near joints of all covers, front joints (outside) lightly cracked and boards holding very strongly. A 19th-century reader's notes on front free endpaper of vol. I. Some considerable browning of paper, as is not uncommon with this work. => Sound and complete.

        Lettres Patentes en Forme D'Edit, Portant Etablissement d'une Compagnie de Commerce sous le nom de Compagnie d'Occident. Donné à Paris au mois d'Aoust 1717.

      Paris: Chez la Veuve Saugrain & Pierre Prault, à l'entrée du Quay de Gêvres, du côté du Pont au Change, au Paradis, 1717. No Binding. Fine. Quarto, 12 pages, a fine copy with wide untrimmed margins. This is the charter of John Law's famous Mississippi Company, the Compagnie d'Occident (also known as the Compagnie du Mississippi), was established in 1717 by the Scottish financier John Law and changed its name to the Compagnie des Indes in May 1719, had a monopoly over trade in Louisiana from 1717 to 1731, as well as a monopoly over Canadian beaver exports from 1718 to 1760. As early as 1715, John Law had put to the Regent a plan for the economic and financial recovery of France, the "Système," which was at first refused but which Law finally succeeded in putting into place progressively. After founding the Banque Générale Privée, which developed the use of paper money, in May 1716, he created the Compagnie d'Occident, which received its letters patent in August 1717 (the present item) and was granted a monopoly over trade in Louisiana. The area covered by the company included the whole of the Mississippi valley, the Illinois Country becoming part of Louisiana through a decree in September 1717. The company's obligations were vast: it was to transport 6,000 colons and 3,000 black slaves over twenty-five years; it was also responsible for expenditure related to religion and defense. Over the following years, the Compagnie d'Occident took over all the other large French trading companies, as well as all large sources of state revenue. Farms were to have brought the company the financial support necessary for the exploitation of its immense colonial domain. Nevertheless, these purchases initially forced it to issue new shares, which the general public bought with banknotes. The Banque Générale had been turned into a Banque Royale in December 1718; in August 1719, an edict was issued according to which the state's debt would be written off through the refunding of loans and offices in banknotes. Because the investment market was too rigid, the new holders of banknotes invested them by buying shares in the Compagnie des Indes. From May 1719, the share value began to increase, and this feverish period of investment, fueled by intense propaganda, continued to grow, while the bank continued to issue bank notes that did not correspond to a metal standard. The "Système" thus found itself at the mercy of a shift in public opinion that took place in the first months of 1720. The inability to refund all investors led to bankruptcy. After July 1720, the "Système" was liquidated: the bank was closed, the original financial and fiscal organization was reintroduced, and the Compagnie des Indes was henceforth only responsible for any trade activity under the tight control of the monarchy. While its actions in Louisiana between 1717 and 1720 had helped to give the colony stability, the company then imposed destructive cuts. Eventually, after the massacre of the Natchez in 1729, the company returned Louisiana to the Crown in 1731. It retained the monopoly over exports of Canadian beaver products until the fall of New France. Wroth and Annan 603, one of several issues of this decree. See Sabin 40716, citing the issue printed by the Imprimerie Royale, "Du Pratz characterizes it as 'A very scarce pamphlet.'" Maggs, French Colonisation of America, 98, listed a variant, Wroth and Annan 601 at £ 10 10s.

        Relation d'un Voyage du Levant fait par ordre du Roy, contenant l'histoire ancienne & moderne de plusieurs Isles de l'Archipel, de Constantinople, des Côtes de la Mer Noire, de l'Armenie, de la Georgie, des frontieres de Perse & de l'Asie Mineure avec les plans de villes... enrichie de descriptions & figures d'un grand nombre de Plantes rares, de diverses Animaux; et de plusieurs observations touchant l'histoire naturelle.

      Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1717. 2 volumes. 4to (255 x 195mm). pp. (18), (2, blank), 544; pp. (4), 526, (40, index), with 150 (some folded) engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spines with gilt lettered label (hinges cracked but firm, spines somewhat worn). First edition. "The botanist Pitton de Tournefort was sent on a mission to the Levant by Louis XIV in 1700. He was accompanied by the artist Claude Aubriet and the doctor Gundelsheimer. Pitton de Tournefort travelled extensively in the Archipelago, visiting most of the islands in the Cyclades. He also spent a considerable period in Crete before going to Constantinople and Asia Minor, the coasts of the Black Sea and then overland through Armenia to Persia. The travellers returned to Paris in June 1702. The text takes the form of letters to M. de Pontchartrain, who sponsored Pitton's mission. The very fine plates are after Aubriet's drawings, and illustrate costumes, botanical and zoological specimens, views and maps" (Blackmer catalogue). Joseph Pitton de Tournefort (1656-1707) was a French botanist and student of Pierre Magnol and professor at the Collège Royale in Paris. Tournefort was the first to describe the common azalea and rhododendron, as well as other plants he collected during this journey. The genus Tournefortia of the Boraginaceae was named after him. Tournefort notes not only plants, but geographical features, antiquities, the people he encounters, and their way of life, agriculture and industry, providing fascinating insights into areas then little known in western Europe. The number of plates varies of the present book as in 2 instances 2 plates are printed on a folded leaf, and these plates are sometimes counted as one or two. In our case they are counted as one plate.//B.M. (Nat. Hist.) V, p. 2128.

        Lettres Patentes Du Roy, Portant Reglement Pour le Commerce des Colonies Françoises. Données à Paris au mois d'Avril 1717.

      Paris?, 1717. No Binding. Fine. small quarto, 11, [1] pp., a fine copy. This is the most important decree concerning French trade with her colonies, on which all subsequent regulations were based. This decree remained in force for a considerable time, suffering periodic amendments, to suit varying economic and political changes. Article I appoints the following ports as trading centers with America: Calais, Dieppe, Le Havre, Roüen, Honfleur, St. Malo, Morlaix, Brest, Nantes, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Bayonne and Cette. Article II declares that "Toutes les denrées & marchandaises, soit du crû ou de la fabrique du Royaume, mesme la vaisselle d'argent, ou autres ouvrages d'Orfeverie; les vins & eaux-de-vie de Guyenne, ou autres Provinces destinez pour etre transportez aux Isles & Colonies Françoises, seront exempts de tous droits de sortie & d'entrée, ." and the same applies according to the next article, to the ships' munitions and provisions. By article X goods coming from abroad to be shipped to the French colonies pay the "droits d'entrée" into France but are exempt from the "droits de sortie," except in the case of foreign salt beef, which is exempt from both. As regards goods coming from America and destined for foreign countries, these also pay no dues, on condition that the necessary declarations are made and that the goods awaiting the conclusion of such sales are warehoused in any of the ports mentioned above, except St. Malo, Morlaix, Brest and Nantes. Five classes of goods may be imported for sale abroad at these four harbours as well, namely "sucres terrez ou cassonades, indigo, gingemvre, rocou & cacao provenant des Isle & Colonies Françoises," to be transported by land along certain specifically defined routes. The following are the Customs duties levied on imports from the Colonies for consumption in France: "Les Moscovades ou Sucres bruts, le cent pésant, Deux livres dix sols. Les Sucres terrez ou Cassonades, le cent pésant Huit livres. L'Indigo, cent sols le cent pésant. Le Gingenvre, quinze sols. Le Cotton en Laine, trente sols. Le Rocou, Deux livres dix sols. Les Confitures, Cinq livres. La Caffe ou Canefice, une livre. Le Cacao, Dix livres . Les Cuirs secs & en Poil, cinq sols de la Piece, Le caret ou Ecaille de Tortue de toutes sortes, Sept livres du cent pésant," this always in addition to any local dues. All goods from the Colonies had to pass through France, or at least a French port, and heavy penalties were imposed in cases where goods were shipped direct from the Colonies even to some neighboring foreign land, nor were ships destined for the Colonies allowed to load wine or other goods in any foreign country, not even in Madeira. This decree contains a number of other purely administrative regulations connected with French colonial trade. By a later decree these regulations were made to apply also to Canada. Unrecorded variant issue of Wroth and Annan 592. See Maggs, French Colonisation of America, 94 for their description of another variant issue. (Their price was £25 in 1936).

        Vieni o Caro che senza il tuo core. Aria from Rinaldo. Musical manuscript. England, ca 1717 or later. Scored for soprano and keyboard

      This setting not in HWV (Rinaldo is HWV 7a and 7b; reference to new, unspecified arias for 1717 production, p. 109). Not in the Halle Halleische Hndel-Ausgabe or the Handel-Gesellschaft edition. One MS copy at the Foundling Museum, London (part of Gerald Coke Handel Collection; RISM no. 806930963). Allegedly published in Additional Favourite Songs in the Opera of Rinaldo as they are perform'd at the Kings Theatre Hay-Market by J. Walsh, London (?1731); however, the extant copies of that publication do not the present setting of the aria. Otherwise probably unpublished; sound recordings exist. Possibly part of Richard Divall's unpublished edition of the opera (MS at the National Library of Australia). According to George Frideric Handel: Collected Documents, vol. 1: 1609-1725, ed. Donald Burrows, Helen Coffey, John Greenacombe, and Anthony Hicks (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2013), Handel newly composed the aria on the occasion of the revival of Rinaldo on January 5, 1717 as an insert (act 2, no. 3) for the soprano Anastasia Robinson as Almirena. The aria is not related to the bass aria "Vieni o cara" from the same opera (act 1, no. 7) as sometimes claimed. The title of the present manuscript either suggests that the manuscript originally included all eight additions to the opera or that it was copied from Walsh's publication with the same title. Apparently an unrecorded early source.. Folio (298 x 240 mm). 4 pp. (one bifolium). Watermark "IV"; presumably the countermark to a "bend" watermark . Notated in brown ink on 12-stave paper. No ascriptions. Singer not identified. "8 Aditionall[!] Songs in Rinaldo" at the upper margin of the first page in scribe's hand. Three staves per system, with the vocal line on the middle staff. Upper staff in G clef, middle staff in C1 (soprano) clef, lower staff in bass clef. D minor; 3/8 time except for first measure at the entrance of vocal part, which is in common time (and unaccompanied). Text: Vieni o Caro che senza il tuo core questo petto piu viver non fa. E se Vive e porteno d'amore che alimento di speme gli da. Small tears to margins; some soiling (dust). Lower margin slightly foxed.
