[MUSIC]
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 condit … [Click Below for Full Description]

INDEX OF BOOKS
Rome: Typographia Camera Apostolica, 1717. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (163x104 mm). [20], 531 pp. Contemporary blind stamped pigskin over wooden boards with brass catches and clasps. Title somewhat stained, otherwise virtually unspotted and unstained. Provenance: Monastery of St. Nicholas, Innsbruck with their dated inscription (1721) on the title-page and final leaf. An exceptionally fine copy of a rare edition of the Church Index of Prohibited Books. ---- This was something sparked off by the Reformation and first issued in 1543 and was then first published in 1559. Thereafter the office of the Apostolic Camera periodically published updated catalogues of books deemed to be dangerous to faith and morals. This particular issue reprints the 1710 Decree of Clement XI prohibiting discussion of the Coeremoniarum Sinensium, or Chinese Rites. These concerned the elements of Confucianism that Fr Matteo Ricci S.J. had incorporated into the brand of Catholicism propagated in the Sino-Manchu Empire. Fine.

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...'

London: Printed for Bernard Lintott, between the Temple Gates in Fleet Street, 1717. Two works bound as one. Octavo, 84 & [19], 115, [1] pages. Fifth and Second editions, respectively. The "first original eighteenth century English treatise on gardening" [Henrey, p. 415], together with its companion, The Gentleman's Recreation. In 1718, following the printing of this volume, a third work was added, The Fruit-garden Kalendar... in order to make his "two former treatises of gardening compleat, and if possible more intelligible." [from the preface of The Fruit-garden Kalendar]. The works are devoted almost entirely to fruit culture, and contains one of the earliest published records of transmission of a virus by grafting. The second volume work contains an 11 page appendix, written by the author's brother, Edward Laurence, outlining a method for finding a Meridian Line, and an advertisement for a forthcoming book titled Timber, Measured and Valued. A few small wormholes to the bottom margin of a signature or two of the second work. Folding plate number one with a closed tear along the fold. Otherwise generally very good internally. In full brown, blind-tooled calf, with raised bands, and a now illegible paper label. Hinges cracked externally, but holding. Overall, good or better. With the bookplate, and ownership signature to the title page of Mr. Edward Stratford, Armorer and Earl of Aldborough. [Henrey 937, 943; Fussell, Old English Farming Books page 101].

Frezier, (Amedée François)
4°. 7 n.n. Bl., 335 S., 9 n.n. S. Index. Mit 37 Kupfertafeln (davon 24 [17 gefalteten] Karten und Pläne). Kalblederband der Zeit mit blindgeprägter mehrfacher Deckelfiletierung, Mittelstück mit Rollstempelverzierung und Eckfleurons. Borba de Moraes I, 329. - Palau 94965. - Sabin 25926. - Nissen ZBI 1433. - Erste englische Ausgabe. Erschien 1716 auf Französisch, jedoch ohne den Anhang von Edmund Halley (dem Kometenhalley) und dem anonymen Bericht über die Jesuiten in Paraguay. Frezier, aus einer aus Schottland nach Frankreich zurückgewanderten Familie stammend, wurde 1682 in Chambéry geboren, studierte in Paris und wirkte als Militäringenieur in verschiedenen Gebieten. So gilt sein Werk 'Traité des feux d'artifice', erstmals 1706 erschienen, als Standardwerk der Feuerwerksliteratur. Beauftragt vom französischen Hofe, die Verteidigungsanlagen der Spanier in Südamerika auszuspionieren und gleichzeitig die Resultate der Vermessungen der Expedition von Louis Feuillée in den Jahren 1707 bis 1712 zu überprüfen, nutzte Frezier den Aufenthalt für vielfältige naturwissenschaftliche Studien. So beschreibt Frezier die Chilenische Erdbeere (Fragaria Chilonesis) und brachte diese Frucht erstmals nach Europa. Seine Karten und Bemerkungen zum Kap Hoorn wurden bis ins 19. Jahrhundert geschätzt und seine Beschreibungen der Urbevölkerung Argentiniens, Chiles und Perus und der frühen europäischen Siedlungen galten als vorbildlich. Mit Ausnahme des Frontispiz wurden für die vorliegende Ausgabe die Kupferplatten der französischen Ausgabe verwendet. Durch das 3seitige Postscriptum Halleys und der … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lucas, John:
London: Printed for the author..., 1717.. 15pp. plus folding table. Small quarto. Dbd. Minor soiling and foxing; a few leaves moderately soiled. About very good. A pamphlet proposing the establishment of a "Company to enlarge trade and commerce, employ the poor, improve navigation, advance the King's revenues; and for the common good of all merchants and traders whatsoever." Clearly hoping to benefit by the success (thus far) of the South Sea Company, it seeks to raise 200,000 pounds, "which may be managed by Directors chosen by the Subscribers, in such a manner as the south- Sea or other Companys." The proposal lays out twenty-eight articles for the government of the company, which also aims to "lend money six months or a longer time without interest, unto all merchants or importers of goods, to pay the King's customs, and for the speedy discharge of ships." Only six total copies located in ESTC and OCLC. ESTC T112523. GOLDSMITH 5385. HANSON 2324.
