a Gentleman
sp;- London - R. Gosling. 1717. Hardcover. Book, Full calf leather binding. Extracts taken from Richard Allestree's religious book of the same title. Richard Allestree (1621/21681), was a Church of England clergyman. Allestree's influence on the late seventeenth-century church may owe less to his preaching or his university lectures than to the series of moral and devotional works initiated by The Whole Duty of Man (1657). The Whole Duty of Man was intended to show the very meanest readers how to behave themselves so in this world that they may be happy for ever in the next. This best-selling manual's prescription of morality and effort was balanced by an emphasis on divine grace and devotional practice: the result was sober, orthodox, common-sense advice pitched at the level of ordinary Anglican parishioners. This was an anonymous work and although it rapidly won acclaim among Allestree's peers, its authorship remained a mystery. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are attached, though the front board is attached by one cord only. The front inner hinge is strained but holding. There is some wear to the extremities, including some chips to the spine and edges of the boards. The corners are also bumped and the front outer hinge is cracked. Internally the book is clean and bright apart from some isolated spots and handling marks. There is a copperplate inscription and an ownership plate to the front paste down. Very Good.

HOWARD, Henry, Earl of Surrey
London: for W. Meares, and J. Brown,, 1717. Who Flourish'd in the Reign of Henry the Eighth. Printed from a Correct Copy. With the Poems of Sir Thomas Wiat, and others his Famous Contemporaries. To which are added some Memoirs of his Life and Writings. Octavo (188 × 114 mm). Late 18th-century green straight-grained morocco, single gilt rules, flat spine lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Three ownership inscriptions to title in different places, though not disfiguring: one undated, one dated 1892, and the inscription dated 1798 of the literary scholar Octavius Graham Gilchrist (1779?-1823), with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Binding a little rubbed, an excellent copy. First edition printed outside the 16th century, and for most collectors the earliest obtainable edition of the poems of Howard and Wyatt, the "first reformers of our English meetre and stile". First published in 1557, any of the 16th-century editions are notably rare.

Beginning in 1715 Proops began advertising other works for sale at the end of each of his publications (he was the first to publish a sales catalogue of Hebrew books); at the end of each volume can be found his advertisement, “todas suertes de Libros Hebraicos y Españoles.” Each volume with lovely engraved title page by I. Van Sasse incorporating vignettes of Biblical scenes, highlighting women of the Bible (one with the legend “Por mugeres pias salimos de Egipto” i.e., “On account of the righteous women we were redeemed from Egypt”).

Lyons (Anisson et Posuel), 1717.. 3 vols. (22), 379, 448, 404, (60)pp., 153 engraved plates, plans and maps (6 folding). Stout 8vo. Eighteenth-century French tree-calf gilt, raised bands, with red and green morocco lettering pieces. A.e.g. Second edition of the work, published in the same year as the Paris first edition, in quarto; a third edition was issued in 1718 (Amsterdam), as was an English translation. “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 traveled 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” (Leonora Navari, in the Blackmer catalogue). An elegant copy.

(FABRICIUS, Johann)
Titles in red & black. Six vols. 4to, cont. vellum over boards (a few bindings a little warped). Wolfenbüttel: 1717-18-19-21-22-24. First edition of this catalogue which rarely appears on the market. Fabricius (1644-1729), was a leading classical philologist and inspector of the schools of the Duchy of Brunswick-Luneburg. This is "a biobibliographical dictionary. It is a roughly classified list of books owned by Johannes Fabricius, with brief but very valuable accounts of the life and writings of the various authors. Since larger and more recent reference works often do not mention these authors, who were chiefly minor sixteenth- and seventeenth-century scholars, Fabricius is likely to give helpful information. Fabricius was obviously more interested in giving this information than in making a catalogue of his library, for the Historia does not claim to be a complete catalogue."­Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 7­(& see pp. 11, 108, 186, & 204). Minor browning but a fine set. Brunet, II. 1154­"Cet ouvrage, travaillé avec soin et qu'on a souvent cité." .

FRÉZIER, Amédée-François (1682-1773)
London: Printed for Jonah Bowyer, 1717. 4to. (9 3/8 x 7 inches). Title in red and black. 37 engraved maps and views (22 maps [15 folding], 13 plates [1 folding] and 2 folding profiles). Contemporary panelled calf (rebacked), modern dark blue shot silk-covered box. First edition in English of this important Pacific voyage, after the original French edition published in Paris in 1716. According to Hill the present first edition in English "is preferred ... because it contains a postscript by Edmund Halley ... which corrects certain geographical errors made by Frézier." Other authorities agree: "This English edition is much sought after" (Borba de Moraes). "The relation of M. Frezier has always been highly esteemed from his character as an author of great truthfulness, as well as for the numerous exact maps with which it is illustrated" (Field). A "production of unrivaled interest and beauty" (Sabin). This book is unusual in that, with the exception of the specially produced frontispiece/route map, all the maps and plates are printed from the same printing plates as were used for the engravings in the first edition published in French in Paris. The author, "a French Royal military engineer, was under contract to sail to Spanish possessions in South America to construct forts for defense against English and Dutch attacks. The French government also ordered him to chart the western coast of South America ... The first part of this book gives an interesting account of the voyage from France around Cape Horn ...

Blount's Law Dictionary was first published in 1670 under the title 'Nomo-Lexicon'. '[This] work quickly superseded its predecessors. In addition to providing the explanation of common law terms, Blount was the first lexicographer of a purely English dictionary to attempt an etymology of words (Starnes & Noyes, p. 46); he devoted many pages to etymology and described the origins of ancient law customs. Blount was also the first English lexicographer who consistently cited references to authorities consulted, statutes, and treatises (Cowley, lxxxix). The work was reissued in larger and revised editions throughout the eighteenth century. By 1717, editor William Nelson of the Middle Temple added more than 3000 words to the original text ...'

DE L'ISLE, Guillaume (1675-1726)
Paris: Chez l'Auteur sur le Quay de l'Horloge, 1717. An excellent early issue of this fine early map of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean, from Guadeloupe to Grenada, by one of the great French mapmakers. Guillaume De L'Isle (1675-1726) was son of a cartographer and a pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De L'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. This map depicts some the highly disputed islands that figured in the sugar trade and the wars between France and England throughout the 18th century. The purview of the map is from Guadeloupe in the north to Grenada in the south, and it includes Martinique, St. Vincent, Barbados, Dominica and the Grenadines. Phillips Maps p.1054. Copper-engraved map, with period outline colour. Fine condition apart from some light old discolouration to left blank margin.

The Seventh Edition, in which the whole Translation is revised, and much amended: Whereby it is now made more fit than any of the former Impressions for the Use of Schools." A twice-rebound copy, good plus; bound in 3/4 leather in the 19th century, rebacked with a cloth spine recently. An old red leather title-piece, possibly the original, is reapplied to the new spine.
