        Hampton-Court, August 31, 1718. This morning arrived here Captain Byng, the Admiral's Son, and brought Letters from him as far as the 7th Instant, O.S. with a particular Account of the Engagement with the Spanish Fleet off Cape Passaro.

      Printed sheet, 7 x 12 inches. Thirty-nine lines follow the headlines and give a detailed account of this battle, in which Byng defeated the Spanish in a runup to the all but forgotten War of the Quadruple Alliance. (As a result of this war, Spain briefly held Pensacola, Florida.) Byng's performance in this victory did him little good when, thirty-nine years later, he was executed for supposedly failing to protect Minorca during the Seven Years War. In fact, he simply took the fall for the Admiralty at large, which was then in disarray. This rare broadside is accompanied by an article from the London Gazette of the next day, recapitulating the account of the battle as it appeared in the broadside. The broadside itself bears the manuscript notation "1 Sept. 1718." Rare. According to Worldcat, only the British Library hold a copy. Evenly tanned; in excellent condition.

        The doctrine of chances: Or, a method of calculating the probability of events in play.

      London: W. Pearson for the author, 1718. Moivre, Abraham de (1667-1754). The doctrine of chances: Or, a method of calculating the probability of events in play. 4to. [4], xiv, 175pp. London: W. Pearson for the author, 1718. 251 x 200 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1718, front hinge cracked but holding, some wear at extremities and corners; boxed. Very good, clean copy with only occasional soiling. Engraved armorial bookplate of Charles Meynell on front pastedown. First Edition of Moivre?s first book on probability. The Doctrine of Chances was based upon Moivre?s short memoir entitled ?De mensura sortis,? published in the 1711 volume of the Philosophical Transactions. The first edition is essentially a gambler?s manual, ?giving a systematic presentation of the arithmetic principles upon which are based the solution of problems concerning the advantage of players and the size of wager which may be laid in a wide variety of games of chance? (Walker, p. 12). Shortly after the publication of The Doctrine of Chances Moivre began working on the most memorable of his discoveries, the approximation of the binomial probability distribution, which ?became the most fruitful single instrument of discovery used in probability theory and statistics? (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Moivre?s discovery was first printed in its entirety in 1733 in a Latin pamphlet, later translated into English and incorporated, in successively expanded versions, in the second (1738) and third (1756) editions of The Doctrine of Chances. Norman 1529. Stigler, The History of Statistics, pp. 70-88. Walker, Studies in the History of Statistical Method, pp, 12-13.

Folding map and 151 plates, maps & plans (6 folding), many botanical. First edition in English, translated by John Ozell, a year after the original text in French was published at Paris. Tournefort (1656-1708) was royal botanist to Louis XIV. The book arose from the suggestion made in 1699 to Louis XIV by the Count de Pontchartrain, Secretary of State and in charge of the French Academy, that he send suitable persons abroad to observe not only natural history, but also geography, commerce, religion and manners of other peoples. Between 1700 and 1702 Tournefort travelled through the islands of Greece and visited Constantinople, the borders of the Black Sea, Armenia and Georgia, collecting plants and undertaking other types of observations, reporting his findings in letters to Count de Pontchartrain. He was accompanied by the German botanist Andreas Gundesheimer (1668–1715) and the artist Claude Aubriet (1651–1743). The book was published posthumously after Tournefort was run over and killed by a carriage in Paris. It includes a famous early description of a vampire (vrykolakas) exorcism (volume I p. 103): "We were present at a very different scene, and one very barbarous, in the same Island [Mykonos], which happen'd upon occasion of one of those Corpses which they fancy come to life again after their Interment".

        Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France et des Decouvertes qui ont ete faites

      Paris, 1718. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. "One of the most outstanding maps of Canada of the 17th and early 18th centuries" (Kershaw). "Del'Isle's map of Canada is one of the most outstanding maps of Canada of the 17th and early 18th centuries. Typical of all his work, the information that went into his map of Canada was the result of careful and painstaking research" (Kershaw, I, p. 278). The numerous trading posts and missions of New France and the major towns of the adjacent British colonies are labeled. The area around Hudson's Bay is shown to be inhabited by native tribes referred to as the Christinaux or Kilistinons, referring to their conversion to the Christian faith, while Labrador is home to the Eskimaux. Interestingly, the map features a number of notes specifically referring to the names of explorers and the dates in which they discovered certain places, such as the reference to Nouveau Danemarc, discovered by the Danish explorer Jan Munk in 1619. The depiction of the upper Mississippi and Ohio basins is also quite detailed, noting the position of the French fort of St. Louis or Crevecouer near the present-day site of Peoria, Illinois. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the map is its portrayal of the Rivière Longue, one of the most sensational and enduring cartographic misconceptions ever devised. This imaginary river was reported to flow from the Pays des Gnacsitares in the far west, promising the best route through the interior of the continent. A short distance over some mountains lies a long salt water lake, that is supposedly connected to the Pacific Ocean. It is a product of the imagination of the Baron Lahontan, an entertaining and roguish French adventurer, whose best-selling travel narrative Nouveaux voyages dans l'Amérique septentrionale (1703) convinced many of the world's greatest intellects of the existence of this mythical waterway. Nine states of the map were published in the 18th century, plus several derivatives. The present example is the fifth state, with De L'Isle's title "Geographe du Roy" added below his name in the cartouche.

First edition in French of Le Bruyn's important illustrated account of his voyage to Russia, Persia, India and Java. In his first expedition of 1674, Dutch traveller and painter Cornelius Le Bruyn remained in the Levant for seven years, travelling principally in Asia Minor, Syria, the Holy Land and Egypt. On his return, he published his Voyages au Levant , and encouraged by its success, undertook a second, more far-reaching expedition. "In 1701, Le Bruyn started on the second of his journeys taking a ship to the country of the Samoyeds ... and then proceeding to Moscow. Travelling by way of Asia Minor, he arrived in Persia where he remained for the years 1704-05. Leaving Persia he proceeded [by ship] to India [stopping at Cochin], Ceylon and the East Indies [i.e. Batavia]. He returned by much the same route, residing in Persia between 1706 and 1707 and describing the ruins of Persepolis and Pasargades" (Howgego). The numerous finely engraved illustrations include large folding panoramas of Moscow and Isfahan, views of Astrakhan, and the antiquities at Persepolis and many of the forts encountered on his journey, as well as portraits of native peoples, and depictions of the flora, fish, birds, animals etc. Of particular note are Le Bruyn's description and images of the Samoyeds and their country, among the earliest for the region. Le Bruyn also gives an account of an encounter with William Dampier in Batavia, and describes the route taken by Everard Ysbrants Ides, the Danish Russian ambassador to China.

        POEMS ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS

      London: Printed for Jacob Tonson, 1718. The FIRST AND BEST OF THE RARE Tonson subscription folio editions, ONE OF A VERY SMALL NUMBER OF COPIES ONLY, of this sumptuous "Superfine" issue, with the watermark of a fleur-de-lys surmounting a shield, organized and published by Prior?s friends. The Strasburg bend watermark was used generally for the subscribers and normal copies were issued with the London arms watermark. Illustrated with superb engraved frontispiece, and large and finely engraved head, tail and initial pieces throughout. Folio, original full period speckled calf, red calf label gilt within raised bands of the spine separating the compartments which are elaborately decorated with finely tooled gilt panel work surrounding central gilt tooled floral pieces, all edges speckled. [42], 506 + [6] Contents at end. A very fine and very crisp copy of this exquisitely printed work. Entirely unsophisticated with some very minor expected age. VERY RARE in this state. An exquisitely printed work. The quality of the engraving work is absolutely superb and the setting of the type and choice of paper of the very highest quality. Having this book in one?s hands makes one reflect upon how wonderful a folio edition of Shakespeare might have been had Tonson ever undertaken the task. Matthew Prior was one of the most important English poets of the century, and a diplomat as well. To raise money after his release from house arrest during the shift of power in England, Tonson and Alexander Pope especially aided Prior in setting to type a subscriber's edition of his poems. The project was a great success with nearly 1500 names included among the original subscribers to the work.

        LADOGA CANAL, Russia: Canalis Ladogensis nova delineatio secundum exemplar Petropolitanum / aeri incidit Matthaeus Seutter.

      - Detailed originally coloured map with titles and names in Latin and Cyrillic shows the Ladoga Canal on the coast of Lake Ladoga between Shlisselburg at the head of the Neva River and the mouth of Volkhov River. The Ladoga Canal was one of the projects of Peter the Great and one of the first major canals constructed in Russia. The construction of the canal was ordered in 1718. The canal was necessary as economic development in Russia required a significant expansion of waterways and the windy and stormy Lake Ladoga offered difficult and dangerous sea routes. The construction began in 1719, but was briefly stopped in 1723, when General Skornyakov-Pisarev, who was in charge of the project, was arrested for his incompetence and carelessness. The work was taken over by Burkhard Christoph von Münnich, who completed the canal in 1730. To a great disappointment of the Czar the canal was less than a meter deep and could not be used. It was only enlarged and expanded by the Catherine the Great from 1765 on. The map shows the ideal construction of the Ladoga Canal with a plan on the upper left part. The German Author Matthäus Seuter based his map upon a Russian map, made by Joseph Nicolas de L'Isle in 1735, published in (Atlas Russicus) Russischer Atlas: Welcher in einer General-Charte und neunzehen Special-Charten das gesamte Russische Reich und dessen angraentzende Laender, nach den Regeln der Erd-Beschreibung und den ne Academie der Wissenschafften (St. Petersburg 1745). This Russian Atlas, published by , was based on work by Iwan Kirillowitsch Kirilow (1689-1737). Kirilow published his maps in unfinished atlas Atlas vserossijskoj imperii (????? ????????????? ???????) in 1734. Matthäus Seutter (1678-1757) was one of the most prominent German publishers of the 18th century. He started his apprenticeship under the most famous engraver of the time Johann-Baptist Homann.In 1732 he received a title of Imperial Geographer by German Emperor Charles VI. After Matthäus’ death his son took over the firm for mere five years, until his death in 1762. After that the firm was divided between the printing firm Probst and Seutter’s son-in-law Tobias Conrad Lotter. References: L. Bagrov: Ivan Kirilov, compiler of the first Russian atlas, 1689 1737.

        Hampton-Court, August 31, 1718. This morning arrived here Captain Byng, the Admiral's Son, and brought Letters from him as far as the 7th Instant, O.S. with a particular Account of the Engagement with the Spanish Fleet off Cape Passaro.

      Printed sheet, 7 x 12 inches. Thirty-nine lines follow the headlines and give a detailed account of this battle, in which Byng defeated the Spanish in a runup to the all but forgotten War of the Quadruple Alliance. (As a result of this war, Spain briefly held Pensacola, Florida.) Byng's performance in this victory did him little good when, thirty-nine years later, he was executed for supposedly failing to protect Minorca during the Seven Years War. In fact, he simply took the fall for the Admiralty at large, which was then in disarray. This rare broadside is accompanied by an article from the London Gazette of the next day, recapitulating the account of the battle as it appeared in the broadside. The broadside itself bears the manuscript notation "1 Sept. 1718." Rare. According to Worldcat, only the British Library hold a copy. Evenly tanned; in excellent condition.

        Uitbeelding der Heerlijkheit Friesland. ENGRAVED TITLE PAGE. [Willen Henskes copy? Pre-published?].

      Francois Halma,, Leeuwarden: 1718 - Title page. Trimmed just outside the borders. Appears to be a title page pre-published, with small map, coat of arms, and title tablet excised, replaced with contemporary notes in ÒWillem HenskesÓ hand (?). Henskes was an authority on Dutch books in the 18th century. It is rare, but few books of the period were bound with such things as the coat of arms and title lacking from the engraving, so that the owner could personalize it for themselves. Mounted at corners on larger plain leaf, suitable for framing, or to match with another copy. From the famous Friesland Atlas, the first atlas of the Dutch province of Friesland. Beautiful allegorical frontispiece (furst appearance in this edition), engraved by Jacob Folkema after a drawing by artist Gerbrandus van der Haven and especially after the poet Johannes Hilarides. Very rare. From the second, enlarged edition, as the first edition (1698) was published in only 125 copies.

Wegmann, Schweizer Exlibris 3676ff.). Schönes Exemplar des seltenen Buches. Um was es bei diesem Buch geht, gibt der Titel in hinlänglicher Ausführlichkeit an. Die biographischen Angaben zum Autor sind leider in den diversen Handbüchern weniger ausführlich. Immerhin weiß man, daß er 1707 vor dem Consistorium in Bayreuth wegen ketzerischer Ansichten in religiösen Dingen verhört worden ist, daß er sich dann, in halb EURpa, vor allem natürlich in Holland und England, herumtrieb, daß er 1735 gestorben ist, und man kennt natürlich seine Schriften, von denen auffallend viele sich die Offenbarung des Johannes vornehmen. Im Jöcher wird er als ?Fanaticus? eingeführt, anderswo wird er als ?religiöser Schwärmer? und ?mystisch-chiliastischer Separatist? bezeichnet. Als Gewährsmänner für die in seinem Buch verlangte Trennung von Staat und Kirche und für seine Verteidigung der Toleranz - ?hier sage ich nun rund heraus: Der Fürst ist verbunden, alle Dissentierungs-Freyheit in Religion-Sachen, quoad fidem & cultum, zu verstatten, alle Dissentirende zu toleriren, sie zu schützen und an ihren bürgerlichen Rechten und Freyheiten nichts entgehen zu lassen? (S. 174) - führt Seitz Grotius, Pufendorf, Locke, Bayle und Thomasius an. Er selbst sah sich zweifelsohne als membrum ecclesiae spiritualis, die sichtbare erschien ihm in beiden Konfessionen verderbt vom Widersacher.

        A Cruising Voyage Round the World..

      London, 1718. b/w folding maps. xix, 428, 57, (7) pp. “This work may be considered a buccaneering classic. With William Dampier as pilot, Captain Woodes RogersÂ’ privateering expedition set sail from Bristol. After sailing down the coast of Brazil and rounding Cape Horn, she made for the deserted island of Juan Fernandez... There Rogers rescued the celebrated Alexander Selkirk... The expedition then cruised the coast of Peru, taking various prizes, reached California, and crossed the Pacific to Asia.”—Hill 1479. It is generally supposed that Daniel Defoe based his “Robinson Crusoe” on this work, since it is the first to describe Selkirk. A large part of the book also relates to California and Mexico. This is the second “Corrected” edition of a book first published in 1712. It contains 5 folding maps by Moll and Senex, and an expanded appendix. Ink lines at bottom of title page and dedication, not obscuring any text. A very nice copy, bound in contemporary full calf “Cambridge style” binding, rebacked to match with gilt spine decorations, raised bands, and red spine label. Backstrip lightly scuffed.

Dialogue entre A, B et C sur la nature de l'éloquence, A ayant le rôle de Socrate et employant la maïeutique, B et C répondant aux questions de A. Les personnages discutent d'un sermon qu'ils viennent d'entendre et définissent à partir de là les qualités de la véritable éloquence en puisant ces dernières parmi les exemples des Anciens. Fénelon critique à la fois les Anciens et les Modernes, donnant la préférence à l'éloquence des saintes Ecritures. L'essai de Du Cerceau tente de caractériser la poésie française et ce qui fait la spécificité du vers par rapport à la prose.

      Choulant, pp. 296-297; ESTC T137584; Gaskell 56; Heirs of Hippocrates 942; Roberts & Tomlinson, pp. 460-465. Magnificent first edition of a bilingual (Latin and English) anatomical atlas on obstetrics and gynaecology, illustrated with 34 mostly life-sized and accurately detailed anatomical plates of pregnant women and their unborn children. William Hunter (1718-1783), royal physician and professor of anatomy at the Society of Naval Surgeons, wrote the preface and the notes to the plates, had the illustrations drawn under his supervision and worked closely with the engravers, who produced the plates at his expense. The work began when a young woman died suddenly at full term in 1751 and Hunter was able to procure her body before any deterioration. In the preface Hunter gives remarkable details about his techniques, such as "the injection of the blood-vessels" to preserve the body for the artists, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of different kinds of anatomical illustration, which he mixes here. "One of the great publications of world medical literature as well as a classic of book production" (Heirs of Hippocrates) and "one of the great artistic achievements in medicine" (Haskell Norman).With the ca. 1800 ink stamp of "The Liverpool Library". Without the dedication leaf, fore-edge of plate VIII slightly shaved, a small restoration removing its engraver's name, a few other small marginal restorations, a crease in 1 plate and a few text leaves, and a faint marginal water stain in the last few leaves, but still generally in good condition. The marbled-paper sides are slightly rubbed but the binding is otherwise very good. A spectacular showpiece for any collection in the field of anatomical illustration, women's studies, obstetrics, gynaecology or book production..

This is the beginning of the end for the Compagnie d'Occident, as the Mississippi Bubble begins to burst. "A variant and unrecorded issue of Wroth 654" - Maggs. The one copy in OCLC, at Harvard, appears to be the same as Wroth 654. Rare. From the library of Cardinal Etienne Charles de Lomenie de Brienne (1727-94), Minister of Louis XVI, Archbishop of Toulouse and of Sens. A friend of Voltaire and a member of the Académie Française, Brienne wielded significant power as head of the Finance Ministry, which earned him many enemies. He died in prison during the French Revolution, despite having renounced Catholicism in 1793 (presumably as an attempt to save his life).

      Leyden, Johannes Muller, the widow of Cornelis Boutesteyn, and Samuel Luchtmans 1718. (gegraveerde titelpagina, 21) 302, (2) 134, (14) 164, (2) 66 folia. Origineel Perkament met ribben en stempels, Folio H. 43 x B. 27 x D. 12 cm. (Zeer fraaie Statenbijbel in heldere druk op zeer wit papier, in een originele perkamenten band, het is zeer zeldzaam om een Bijbel uit deze tijd gebonden te zien in perkament. De onderkant van de rug is vakkundig gerestaureerd en de linten zijn vernieuwd. Met de 6 uitvouwbare kaarten van Cornelis Danckerts II. Deze 6 bijbelkaarten werden rond 1710 gegraveerd door Albert Schut, een graveur die werkzaam was van 1708 tot 1713. De wereldkaart en de kaart over de zendingsreizen van Paulus zijn gewone, enigzins bijgewerkte atlaskaarten. Op de laatste kaart staan zelf Nederlandse plaatsnamen te lezen, zoals Coeverden en Staveren of het Waddeneiland Schierman Ooge, namen waar Paulus wel nooit van gehoord zal hebben. De kaarten over het paradijs, de woestijnreis en het Beloofde Land lijken veel op de gelijknamige kaarten van Nicolaes Visscher. Alles is veel soberder van opzet, meestal zonder inzetten en engeltjes, meer in de Franse stijl, welke in de achttiende eeuw populair werd. De Jeruzalemkaart, volgens het ontwerp van Villalpando, is sterk verwant aan die van de familie Keur. Voor het drukken van deze Bijbel werd gebruik gemaakt van gegoten platen, waarop de complete tekst van de te drukken Bijbel stond. Luchtmans was de enige drukker die hiervan gebruik heeft gemaakt.) (engraved titlepage, 21) 302, (2) 134, (14) 164, (2) 66 folia. Contemporary blind-stamped Vellum with 6 raised bands, Folio H. 43 x L. 27 x W. 12 cm. (Beautiful Dutch States Bible, bright printing on very white paper, bound in a contemporary vellum binding, it is very rare to see a Bible from this time bound in complete vellum. The bottom of the spine is skillfully restored and the ribbons have been renewed. With the 6 folding maps by Cornelis Danckerts II. These 6 biblemaps were engraved around the year 1710 by Albert Schut, an engraver who worked from 1708 until 1713. The worldmap and the map of the travels of Paul are slightly modified atlas maps. On this last map you can even read Dutch place names, like Coeverden and Staveren or the Wadden island Schierman Ooge, these are names Paul most likely could have never heard of. The maps of the Paradise, the wanderings of Israel in the desert, and the Promised Land look a lot like the similar named maps by Nicolaes Visscher, although everything is much more moderate of design, most of the time without insertions and little angels, but more in the French style, which became popular in the eighteenth century. The map of Jerusalem, after the design by Villalpando, is strongly related to the similar map by the family Keur. For the printing of this Bible were used casted plates, on which were written the complete text of the to be printed Bible. Luchtmans was the only printer that ever used this system.) Poortman, W.C. (1983). Bijbel en Prent. Deel I: Boekzaal van de Nederlandse Bijbels, p. 160, 161 / Poortman, W.C. (1995). Kaarten in Bijbels, p. 230.
