        The Vocal Pocket Companion Being a Select Collection of the Most Favorite Catches, Glees and Duetts, for Two and Three Voices Humbly Inscribed to Mrs Crewe By Her Most Obedient and Obliged Servant

      London, [C.1780s]: George Smart, Printed for the Editor at His Music Warehouse. First and Only Edition. Dimensions 4 x 5.5 Inches. [2], 3-52ff. Each leaf mounted on stiff card. Engraved title and index leaves, the remainder printed. Very slight chipping to extremities and some browning to first two and final leaf. Preserved in nineteenth-century red morocco slipcase, a trifle rubbed. A scarce compendium of 50 popular choral music printed on small cards presumably produced to be held in the hand. The dedicatory nod to society hostess Fanny Crewe suggests these were produced for the luxury market, to be used in a social rather than professional setting. Whilst many of the pieces are attributed to the composers Lawes, Hilton, Baildon, Purcell, Brewer, Arne, Festing, Greene, Goodgrow, Byrd, Hayes, Atterbury, Wilson, Harrington, Holmes, King, Lawes, Travers and Gregory, others are published without a name attached. Included in the later category is 'So peaceful rests without a stone', taken from the sixth verse of Pope's Elegy to the Memory of an Unfortunate Lady (1717) and 'Fear no danger to ensue the hero loves as well' from Purcell's Dido and Aneas (1689). George Smart (1750/51?-1818?), musical instrument maker and publisher, relocated his 'music warehouse' to the corner of Argyll St. from nearby Conduit St in around 1774. According to Humphries and Smith's Music Publishing in the British Isles, (Oxford, 1970), it survived until 1805.The apparent rarity of this set both in commerce and institutionally makes this survival in such good condition more remarkable; OCLC locates a single set at the British Library (dated C.1785). A similar, likely subsequent Smart production with a very similar title, but with the replacement of 'new collection' for 'select collection' and naming 'the following eminent masters, viz. Dr Cooke, Danby, Webbe, Finesche, Callcott' to the title is recorded by OCLC at BL and Yale. Both titles have long been highlighted as treasures: forming single lots 66 and 68 at Sotheby's book sale of February 9th 1837.

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old Testament and the New:

      Oxford: by John Baskett, Printer to the King's most Excellent Majesty,, 1717. Newly Translated out of the Original Tongues: And with the former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised. By His Majesty's Special Command. Appointed to be Read in Churches. Imperial folio (533 × 348 mm). Contemporary blue goatskin with the gilt arms of George I as King of Great Britain 1714–1727 to the centre of each cover and his crowned monogram in the centre of each spine compartment, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments, sides with wide gilt border, marbled endpaper, gilt edges; rebacked with original spine laid down, silk ties lacking. Royal ruled in red throughout. Title page in red and black. With numerous engraved head- and tailpieces. The New Testament has separate register and title page dated 1716; with the Apocrypha. Small book label removed from front pastedown, ownership inscription of William Sawton, 1884, to front blank. Rubbed, front cover darkened, rear cover somewhat faded, some browning from old page markers, still a very good copy of this impressive volume. The Vinegar Bible, a magnificent production from the new university press at Oxford, the gilt arms of George I indicating that this copy was bound for use at one of the royal chapels. A condition of Baskett's lease of the university press was the contribution of £2,000 towards the building of a new printing house; the move from the Sheldonian into Clarendon House took place in October 1713. Baskett's ambitious imperial folio bible decorated with engravings by Hoffman, Du Bosc, and Vandergucht, later described by the bibliophile Thomas Dibdin as a magnificent work, was however marred by a number of errors and was nicknamed the Vinegar Bible from the misprint in the headline of the parable of the vineyard in Luke 20. Nevertheless, "even loose sheets of this work, described as 'shining examples of paper and print' by Daniel Price, were much sought" (Nichols, Illustrations, 708, cited in ODNB).

        COMPLEET NEDERDUITSCH EN FRANSCH WOORDENBOEK

      1717. Good. MARIN, Pieter. DICTIONNAIRE COMPLET HOLLANDOIS ET FRANCOIS. COMPLEET NEDERDUITSCH EN FRANSCH WOORDENBOEK. Amsterdam, printed for the author in de Wye-Capelsteeg, and also to be found at the Widow Gysbert de Groot and Pieter de Coup, 1710 and 1717. Quarto. Two volumes. [xl]1208[4]; [xx]1062pp. First edition, with both volumes signed by the author on the "copye van de Privilegie" page. The first volume, published in 1710, has French to Dutch vocabulary; the second, 1717, is Dutch to French. Both have engraved allegorical titlepages, explained in Dutch on a separate, printed leaf. The author promises to follow the usage of the French Academy, and to include terms of the "necessary arts, curious notes, historical remarks, and other items encouraging a taste for good literature." In early vellum, dried, broken and soiled. Volume I is detached from its covers, with the 20 leaves of prelims disbound, with some staining and tattering, but no loss to printed area. Volume II clings to its covers by two cords, shows dampstaining to last quarter of text, with two final blanks detached and key to frontispiece torn. Clearly in need of, and worthy of, a binder's help. This important dictionary was reprinted in 1720, 1728, 1730, and 1743. Both the OCLC and the Cordell Collection list only later editions.

        Ragguaglio della Nozze delle Maestà Filippo Quinto e di Elisabetta Farnese...celebrate in Parma l’Anno 1714

      Parma: Stamperia di S.A.S., 1717. Rare fete book celebrating the nuptials of Philip V of Spain, the Founder of the Bourbon dynasty, and Elizabeth Farnese, at Parma Cathedral in September of 1714. Arranged by the Vatican after the death of Philip's first wife, Maria Louisa of Savoy, the marriage was of considerable political importance, and in due course brought about the transference of the Duchy of Parma from the possession of the Farnese family to that of the Bourbons. As not infrequently happened in such marriages, the groom didn’t show, but was represented by proxy (a high-ranking Cardinal!). The prose account retails the entry of the massive Vatican entourage into Parma, the tour of the Farnese apartments and other possessions and selected local attractions. The elaborate procession to the Cathedral is set out, with remarks on costume and of course the decoration of the cathedral is treated at length. The Farnese court painter Ilario Spolverino (1657-1734) was commissioned to make a series of paintings of the event, from which a number of engravings were made for the work at hand by the Bolognese Francia. The plates include an allegorical frontispiece in which winged figures present an oval portrait of Elizabeth Farnese to the (apparently) smitten King; (1) an “extra” large plate showing the entry of the Vatican party into Parma, complete with 24 mules; (2) the exterior of the cathedral decorated with draperies and family arms; (3) the decorated interior, with draperies and allegorical emblems, and showing as well the contemporary state of the Cathedral’s permanent decoration, a subject of considerable art historical interest; (4) the wedding proceedings “live,” including the panoply of the filled cathedral; (5) an architectural plan of the cathedral.* Berlin Kat. 3060; Lipperheide Si 36; Cicognara 1491; Vinet 567; Coxe, Memoirs of the Kings of Spain and of the House of Bourbon; R.A. Riccardi, Ilario Spolverini (1979), #55-73.. Folio, (1) f., 115, (1) pp., including frontispiece and 5 large folding plates measuring approximately ; plate I; 89cmx60cm; plate II.:49cmx44cm: plate III:43cmx67cm: plate IV:82cmx60cm; plate V: 82cmx53cm. Bound in original Spanish calf. ‘Pasta Espanola”. Very tall copy with large margins. Internally very fresh. Generally excellent.

      Nuremberg.: [Johann Baptist Homann.]. 1717.. A beautifully engraved hand coloured map of North East Germany showing the area around Erfurt in detail. In the centre of the map is a small plan of Erfurt, which is also shown as a panoramic view at the foot of the map and titled 'St. Petersburg'. An elaborate decorative title cartouche in the lower right corner depicts allegorical figures surrounded by the produce of the land including sheaves of wheat; a beehive; and a cornucopia of fruits. Cherubs holding a coat of arms float up from the scene on the right, while on the lower left a centaur sits meditatively beneath a pine tree amongst slaughtered cattle. Physical features of the area are illustrated and farming areas shown by fields which criss-cross across the map. A clear, dark impression, the work of an outstanding German cartographer who, in 1715, was appointed as imperial geographer by Emperor Charles VI. This map also includes "Schwan See" [Swan Lake] under a town of the same name, which has since disappeared. Hand coloured, two very minor splits at upper and lower edges on centre fold and not affecting engraved area, a handsome map, 54 x 61.5 cm. .

        A Voyage to the South-Sea, and along the Coasts of Chili and Peru

      London,: Jonah Bowyer, 1717.. Quarto, with 22 maps and plans and 15 engraved plates and views, title printed in red & black; an attractive copy in contemporary polished calf, neat repair to front joint; spine with unusual decoration in black & blind, banded and lettered in gilt. First English edition, with a new postscript by Edmund Halley dealing with South American navigation. FrÈzier sailed under the Horn to reach the west coast of South America, and his description and maps (especially those of the west coast anchorages) were much used by later navigators. He gives good descriptions of Chile and Peru. One of his odder claims to fame is that he introduced the strawberry to Europe from Chile. It is illustrated here.'FrÈzier, a French royal military engineer, was under contract to sail to the Spanish possessions in South America to construct forts for defence against English and Dutch attacks. The French government also ordered him to chart the western coast of South America in order that they would have some knowledge of that area for possible military operations. The first part of the book gives an interesting account of the voyage from France around Cape Horn and was used by contemporary and even by later navigators. The second part relates to the voyage along the coasts of Chile and Peru, describing the chief towns and cities. FrÈzier, a man of observation, brought back information of considerable geographical and scientific value. Much data is included about the native inhabitants...'
