        The Holy Bible

      Oxford: John Baskett 1717 - 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 (191⁄2 x 113⁄4 in.).

        Exceedingly Rare Autographed Colonial Legal Document

      New York, 1717. unbound. 11.25 x 8.25 inches, City of New York, Commissioner for recording, Office of the Attorney General, February 14, 1717 -- a legal writ whereby Jamison presents charges against a colonist, in part: "David Jamison for our Lord the King George, by the grace of God of Great Britain, Wales and Scotland - and before John Johnston Esq., Mayor of the City of New York, on the 27th of Jan, in the fourth year of his reign...were informed that Jacob Bonnott...having insulted the King, faces damages sought in the amount of 24 shillings." Clearly signed "CJamison" as Recorder. Directly beneath this document, the Mayor of New York, John Johnston (1717 - 1719) pens his verdict in the form of an autographed document signed, February 14, 1717, in part: "CJacob Bonnett, the defendant, in his proper pardon before the above...acknowledged the above action and comforth judgment. I give judgment for the Plaintiff for one pound & four shillings Damages with Costs." A remarkable Colonial document. Slight weaknesses at the folds; very good(-) condition. Jamison was a Colonial lawyer, Attorney General of New York and New Jersey, staunch defender of religious freedom, and one of the founders of the Trinity Church. He was expelled from England (by the Stuarts) and sold into servitude in America because of his religious beliefs. As an accomplished lawyer, he later represented Reverend Francis Makemie, whereby the latter, a Presbyterian, was charged with "Preaching without a license in a private house." In this landmark case, Jamison argued for toleration in such a colony as New York, pointing out that he himself was (secretly) one of the founders of Trinity Church. To the amazement of many, Makemie was acquitted, and soon after, religious tolerance was enacted into the State Charter (1707). Jamison would eventually receive a Royal Commission as Recorder and Attorney General of New York. The founders of Trinity Church. Jamison was expelled from England (by the Stuarts) and sold into servitude in America because of his religious beliefs.

Particularly describing The Genius and Constitution of the Inhabitants, as well Indians as Spaniards: Their customs and Manners, their Natural History, Mines, Commodities, Traffick with Europe, &c. With a postscript by Edmund Halley and an account of the settlement, commerce, and riches of the Jesuites in Paraguay

      London: Jonah Bowyer, 1717 A good copy of the first English edition (published one year after the French 1st publication) with 37 fine engraved plates, maps and charts as called for. Frezier was a French royal military engineer, and was asked to undertake a voyage to Spanish possessions in South America to study fortifications and to chart the western coast. The first section covers his voyage from France round Cape Horn and the second gives detail of his voyage along the coast of Chile and Peru. His observations were valuable and he gives interesting accounts of local people and customs. Of interest now (particularly for those with golfing and strawberry eating interests) are his depictions of a sport that looks like golf and his discovery of strawberries which he introduced to France. Frezier made some geographical errors which Halley (of comet fame) corrects in this edition. In contemporary panelled calf which has been expertly rebacked to provide a newer spine with raised bands and title label. Some remaining gilt decoration to board edges. With frontispiece map (relaid); title page in red and black inks with small signature to top; dedication 1p; Preface to the Reader 8pp; Letter to Mr Bowyer re the English printing by Edmund Halley asking leave to add a postscript 1p; directions to the binder 1p; text - with decorative head and tailpieces and decorative initial capitals - including 24 maps, charts and profiles - 17 folding - and 13 plates - 1 folding, and some musical notation pp 1-319; Postscript by Edmund Halley pp 320-322; Some Account of the Settlement of the Jesuits pp 323-335; Index 9pp Finis. The binding is in very good condition with only slight wear. The original endpapers have been repaired. The text pages have light brown toning to edges and there is some brown marking and a very occasional light scholarly annotation. The plates and maps are in very good clean condition - one has a small repaired tear and there is light toning to edges. Circa 7.5 x 9.5 inches.

First edition, printing in octavo format. xxii, 162, [2] pp., comprised of engraved dedication, prefatory matter and text, advert leaf and 4pp. subscribers list. 1 vols. 8vo. Richly bound in modern black morocco, raised bands, gilt spine label, boards with decorative roll in blind around edges, edges with oiriginal silvering.

Enclosed in a ultra suede-lined cloth folding chemise. Executed in Silverplate Engravings This is the variant/impression in which page V has an ornamental border composed almost entirely of cherubs and there is no roman numeral at the head of the page. It is also one of the less common copies with the margins, initials and textblocks ruled in red. All aspects of the contents were executed by English engraver and calligrapher, John Sturt via silverplate engraving. Each page is surrounded by a delicate border, and many pages of the main text include one or more of a total of 129 different engraved scenes relevant to the particular text. Sturt (1658-1730) engraved most of the works of English writing-master, John Ayres, and contributed engravings to a number of religious or illustrated publications of his time. The advert leaf enumerates several of them, including the 1721 edition of THE ORTHODOX COMMUNICANT - suggesting that the advert leaf was revised as copies were bound and sold in the years following publication. There were also an unspecified number of copies imposed in 4to format, and yet other copies appear without red rules enhancing the borders and text blocks.

Paris: Florentine Delaulne, 1717. |~||~||~||~||~| An excellent copy of this popular French guide book. The impressive Description des Châteaux et Parc de Versailles et de Marly, with 16 engraved folding plates executed by Scotin l'aîné after designs by Sébastien Leclerc. The present volumes comprise an important, and very early, architectural and artistic record of the King's châteaux at Versailles and Marly-le-Roi. The existence of the former is rarely documented in such great detail prior to the nineteenth century. The château at Marly-le-Roy (now destroyed) was a sumptuous country house built towards the end of the seventeenth century by Louis XIV. The estate was located in a narrow, enclosed valley which Louis deliberately chose as a site because it was secluded and offered no vistas or 'means of making one.' Berrall claims that "Louis changed his mind about the view and had a hill leveled to achieve one; then cascades were fashioned behind a small hermitage (a beautiful classic building designed by Mansart) to make an impressive water staircase with jets and marble statues. As the gardens grew, clipped trees were trained into elaborate canopies, avenues were cut into the woods, and statues were added." The central pavilion (inhabited by the King himself) and its twelve subsidiary pavilions were intended to suggest the sun surrounded by the signs of the zodiac. Marly was wholly abandoned by Louis XVI and was demolished after the Revolution, its art treasures having previously been dispersed. The present work also includes a description of the Labyrinth at Versailles with the fountains depicting the fables of Aesop, as rendered in verse by Benserade. Piganiol de la Force (1673-1753) is described by Weiss as "un compliateur exact et laborieux." The Description of these two châteaux first appeared in 1701 (an unillustrated duodecimo edition which comprised only 426 pages). The present set is of the ninth, and greatly augmented, edition. Very rarely found complete with all the plates, especially that depicting the celebrated machine at Marly which had been constructed to provide water for the fountains. Slightest damage to the heads of the spines and corners; otherwise, fine. Ernest de Ganay 40. Not in Millard, Besterman, Fowler, Hunt, Plesch, Nissen, or Pritzel. For other editions see Cohen-De Ricci 801, Berlin Katalog 2485, Sander 1559, Lewine 416, Cioranescu II, 1390, and Cicognara 4391. See also Berrall, The Garden: An Illustrated History, pp. 202-3.

        Ragguaglio delle Nozze delle Maesta di Filippo Quinto

      , 1717 1717. PARMA. Ragguaglio delle Nozze delle Maesta di Filippo Quinto E di Elisabetta Farnese, Nata principessa di Parma, Re Cattolici Delle Spagne Solennemente celebrate in Parma l'Anno 1714. By Giuseppe Maggiali. 115, [1] pp. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and five large folding plates by various artists after I. Spolverini. Folio, 316 x 202 mm, bound in full contemporary speckled Italian calf, red leather title label on spine, gilt-tooled stamped tools in spine compartments. Parma: Nella Stamperia di S.A.S., 1717. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. A beautiful copy of one of the most attractive Fête books of the Italian Baroque. The illustrations include an allegorical frontispiece and five large, double-folding plates, etched by various artists after original designs by Ilario Spolverini. The text and etched plates document sumptious details attending the marriage of Philip V of Spain to Elizabeth Farnese of Parma in 1714. The wedding took place at the Parma Cathedral to much pomp and ceremony. "This was the culminating event for the Farnese family's dynastic ambitions, and its commemoration was ensured not only by this illustrated book, but also by the three series of narrative paintings that Duke Francesco Farnese commissioned from the local painter Ilario Spolverin" (Millard, Italian and Spanish Architectural Books, p. 341). The book is famous for the five folding etched plates; but the first holds pride of pre-eminence. It shows the magnificent cortège of the papal legate, Cardinal Gozzadini, Bishop of Imola, and the bridegroom Philip V entering the city of Parma on 15 September 1714. The order of the procession is described in detail in the text and the plate provides a seventy-three item legend of the participants at the bottom. "It is a boustrophedonic composition, in which the procession is made to cross eight times the width of the plate from top left to bottom left… At top right the pentagonal citadel of Parma is shown mistakenly (with six bastions) and joyously exploding in bursts of smoke, illustrating the cannon salute described in the text. The excitement of movement is further enlivened by the baggage train of mules and by the cantering horses that pull a great collection of fancy carriages or carry elaborately attired courtiers. The principal participants- the papal legate, the royal ambassador, and the Duke of Parma- are shown close to the actual center of the sheet under a baldachin" (Millard p. 344). The original drawing by Spolverini for this spectacular etched plate survives in the British Museum (Arisi 1986). The other fine plates include the wedding decorations adorning the exterior facade of the Cathedral and two interior views of the Cathedral, one of these interior views showing the actual ceremony, clearly indicating the particular participants, the invited guests, and the detailed costumes worn by each. The final plate offers a diagramatic plan of the Cathedral with the wedding seating chart. This copy is in extremely fine condition, fresh both inside and out. Very scarce thus. Melzi II, 403.

Evenly toned throughout, Worm track to title [[30mm reducing thereafter] and first 9 leaves of Volume 3 with loss of a few letters. Boards rubbed. ex libris removed from front endpapers; shelf mark removed from spines . Joseph Pitton de Tournefort:"Relation D'Un Voyage au Levant" was first published, postumously, in Paris in 1717 [4to]; This edition was published the same year in Lyons [8vo]. The following year, 1818 two more editions were published; in Amsterdam [in the original French] [4to], and in London, translated in to English [8vo]. In 1737 an edition was published in Dutch, in Amsterdam [4to], followed in 1741 by a second English edition. The last edition was published in German in 1776 [8vo]. The plates, after the sketches and paintings of Claude Aubriet, therefore appear in a number of formats depending upon the edition. Joseph Pitton de Tournefort [ 1656-1708] was primarily a Botanist, who became a professor at the Jardin du Roi in Paris and is remembered for producing a system of plant classification and nomenclature in the 1690s. He was a pioneer in systematic botany, whose system of plant classification represented a major advance in his day and remains, in some respects, valid to the present time. His Institutiones Rei Herbariae (1700) might be described as the most important precursor of Linnaeus's work. In" Relation D'Un Voyage au Levant.."(1717) he 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 for him. He visited the Levant in the years 1700 -1702, at the command of Louis XIV; He was expressly commanded to go overland so that he could confirm the accuracy of the maps and reports the King was receiving from his ambassadors to the Caliphs of Alexandria & Constantinople. He was paticularly to observe the peoples, towns, cities, produce and manufacturing of the countries through which he travelled. Originally he was to travel through as far as Ethiopia via Eygypt, but he turned back early, on hearing reports of the Plague. He was accompanied on the Voyage by the artist Claude Aubriet. "Tournefort though a scholar was by no means a enthusiast and therefore his descriptions celebrated places may generally be depended If any thing he was too much disposed from not uncommon species of affectation to disparage places on which the ancients have thrown the rays of glory"  " The Lives of Celebrated Travellers: Jospeh Pitton de Tournefort..." By James Augustus St. John 1839.

Printed from the author's original plates inserted in the Paris edition. Lacks the frontispiece map. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7 3/4") bound in leather with raised spine bands and red label with gilt lettering. Postscript by Dr Edmund Halley and an account of the settlement, commerce and riches of the Jesuits in Paraguay. (Palau 94965, Sabin 25926, Nissen ZBI 1433, Hill p117) First English edition. Frézier was educated in Paris and served as lieutenant of infantry from 1702 til 1707, when he entered the engineer corps. In 1712 the government sent him to examine the condition of the Spanish colonies in America. After visiting the principal points in Peru, Chili and Brazil, he returned to Marseilles. He pointed out several mistakes in the "Relation" of Father Feuille, and this led to a bitter controversy between the two travelers. Frézier introduced the large Chili strawberry into France. First published in France in 1714. The first edition into English is preferable to the French original "because it contains Halley's. postscript, which corrects certain geographical errors made by Frézier" (Hill). "The first part of this book gives an interesting account of the voyage from France around Cape Horn. The second part relates to the voyage along the coasts of Chile and Peru, describing the chief towns and cities. Frézier, a man of observation, brought back information of considerable geographical and scientific value. Much data is included about the native inhabitants. Condition: Rebacked with original spine label laid down; lacking frontispiece map and binder's leaf, free endpapers renewed, intermittent foxing else a very nice copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Contemporary red full morocco, gilt borders, gilt edges of covers, corners bumped, faded richly gilt spine, all edges gilt. Minor foxing. Old catalogue cutting pasted on first endpaper. The first edition was also published in 1717. Anthony Collins (1676-1719), deist, freethinker, follower and friend of Locke. The book is said to be a "powerful statement of the doctrine of necessitarianism" (Enc. of Philos. II, 144). And "is his last strictly philosophical work, in which he unites the psychic determinism of Locke with the metaphysical determinism of Hobbes and Spinoza. The work was widely praised by Voltaire, Priestley (who reprinted it in 1790) and the French materialists" (Dict. of 18th c British Philosophers). See also Israel, Radical Enlightenment, p. 614ff.: "Collins was a philosophical necessitarian and radical Bible critic who firmly believed great benefits would accrue to society from the new freedom to philosophize ... But was all this freedom and intellecual progress worth the disillusionment and disruption?".

        Map of North America Corrected from the Latest Discoveries And Observations

      London c. 1717 - Hand-coloured engraved map, on two sheets, joined, extending north to south from Baffin's Bay to Panama, elaborate pictorial cartouche upper left, 'G. Willdey' advertisement below cartouche, some skilful repairs along old folds. Dimensions: 965 × 650mm (38 × 25.5 inches). A fine example of a rare and beautiful map. The present map seems to be an amalgam of two Delisle maps, the 'Carte Du Canada.' and the 'Carte Du Mexique et de la Floride.' both from 1703, and is taken from his composite Atlas of c.1717. Willdey has incorporated a lavish cartouche showing a vignette of George I flanked by a trumpeting angel and Mercury above a personification of America. George Willdey (fl.1707-1737) had broad commercial interests: his shop was stocked with all manner of goods and commodities, many of which are listed and illustrated on this map, including spectacles, scientific instruments, cutlery, toys, snuff, and so on. However, the cartographic side of his business seems not to have been very successful, and few examples of his maps survive.

      Frankfurt and Leipzig: Christoph Gottlieb Nicolai, 1717. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Two volumes in one. 16mo. [14],296,[18] pp. plus frontispiece; 75 pp. plus two folding plates. In German. Modern vellum, manuscript spine title, gilt sun device in spine, gilt sun, moon, and star devices in cover. Title page of first work in black and red. Trimmed close, touching some text. Toning throughout, light dampstains in text and plates of second work. Very good. A Sammelband of two early modern texts on alchemy and practical magic: the first edition of Johann Martius's "Lessons on Natural Magic" and the 1651 second edition of Jacob Wolff's "Treasure Chamber of Nature..." (after the first of 1645). Johann Nikolaus Martius was a Brunswick-based physician whose works focused on magic's practical applications. Thorndike refers to his 1700 dissertation as a "last word in the seventeenth century on magic": "He divided magic into three kinds: natural, artificial or mathematical, and diabolic. He accepted various legendary instances of artificial or mathematical magic... On the other hand, he despaired of the aeronautical arts ever succeeding. He approved of the cabbala, but regarded geomancy as without any natural foundation... Martius felt that it was necessary to build up a new astrology based on experience, although he did not have much hope that this would come about. But he did not doubt that the human soul had power to leave its body and join itself with other things" (HISTORY OF MAGIC AND EXPERIMETAL SCIENCE Vol. VIII, p. 625). His text here discusses the principles of natural magic and includes numerous recipes for curing ailments, effecting changes in foods, manufacturing paints, etc., followed by one hundred repices along the same lines by 16th-century French physician and astrologer Antoine Mizauld. Jacob Wolff (1642-1694) was an early member of the Academy of the Curious as to Nature (the Leopoldina), where he played a major role in the establishment of its library and natural history collection. His Schatzkammer is largely a discussion of Paracelsus's ideas of Mumia and Arcanum, and he writes at length of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and the Tree of Life, as illustrated in the folding plates. Two rare works representing the last generations of alchemists at the dawn of the Enlightenment.
