        The Newlyweds and their Baby's Comic Pictures for Painting and Crayoning

      Akron/New York/Chicago: The Saalfield Publishing Co.. Very Good+. (c.1917, 1907). Stiff wrappers. NOISBN . [moderate edgewear to covers, internally Fine except for the expected and inevitable age-toning to the pages]. (cartoon strips and panels) A remarkably well-preserved example of this rare vintage coloring book (OCLC reports only four library holdings), containing mostly undated reprints of George McManus's newspaper comic strip, "The Newlyweds," generally considered the first American "family" strip. Created by the then 20-year-old McManus for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World in 1904, the strip ran for twelve years, at various times as both a daily and Sunday feature; when McManus left the World for the New York American (a Hearst paper), he began a new strip called "Their Only Child" ("a perfect clone," in the words of one historian), while "The Newlyweds" continued in the World, drawn by Albert George Carmichael. Dating the strips in the book would be a major research task, not helped by the mishmash of dates provided: the 1917 date is on the front cover; the title page reads: "Copyrighted 1907 by the Press Publishing Co."; and several of the individual color strips bear a 1916 copyright date, also credited to the "Press Publishing Co. (N.Y. World)." All appear to all be Sunday strips, although some are in B&W (for "coloring-in" purposes, I suppose) and others in color, and despite McManus's sole by-line on the title page, Carmichael's work is also well-represented. (On quite a few, either McManus's or Carmichael's signature is visible; generally speaking, the color versions appear to be by Carmichael and the B&W ones by McManus.)To my eyes, the 1917 publication date signals the publishers' attempt to wring a few more drops of revenue out of a feature that had ended the previous year; the seemingly anomalous 1907 copyright date would seem related to the "birth date" of baby Snookums (yes, that was his name), who was introduced into the strip in that year. [Either that or it's just a "holdover" from an earlier book incarnation, "The Newlyweds and Their Baby," published the same year by the New York World, but not to be confused with the present volume.] But relax: it's not so much a collection (let alone a chronicle) as it is a sampler of "The Newlyweds," and as such is utterly charming. McManus's most successful and best-remembered strip, "Bringing Up Father" (aka "Jiggs & Maggie"), debuted in 1913 and had an amazing 87-year run -- outliving its creator by 46 years! .

All early editions of this classic are now scarce. The first part was originally published on 25 April 1719; the fourth edition was published after 6 June, probably at the same time as the sequel and thus as found here. The sequel, ?'Farther Adventures?", was published in August the same year. Hutchins gives a detailed account of the printing and publishing of the two parts of Robinson Crusoe, including a number of variants within the first editions. These are not issue points, as the variants are found in different combinations. In this copy, the second part has verso of A4 with the announcement of the fourth edition and p. 295 correctly numbered. Copies of the book with both volumes in first edition are rare and now prohibitively expensive for most collectors.

        Amerique Septentrionale Divisee en Ses Principales Parties . . . François, Castillans, Anglois, Suedois, Danois, Hollandois Tirée des Relations de toutes ces Nations Par le Sr. Sanson

      Paris 1719 - Copper-engraved map by Cordier on laid, watermarked paper, hand-coloured in outline, in very good condition. A fine copy of Burden's 5th issue of Jaillot's map of North America, revised to incorporate the best available information from Guillaume De L'Isle and others. Hubert Jaillot's son Bernard carried on the family cartography business upon the death of his father in 1712, and in 1713, he issued a much revised and improved map of North America, incorporating the new geographic knowledge procured by De L'Isle and De Fer. In 1719, he issued what would be the fifth state of the map on which California ceased to be an island and the Carolinas were shown as part of the French territory: Floride. It is interesting to look at maps of North America at this period in terms of ambition competing with objectivity. One feels the emotional, political ambitions of England and France to have been boundless and liable to provoke quite pugnacious reactions, even though neither side really knew very well the geography of what they were claiming. The trials of exploration to ascertain actual facts were harsh and often not well rewarded, nor were the explorers always able to know: note LaSalle's account of the Mississippi wandering into Texas before finding the Gulf. Nevertheless, this revised edition of Hubert Jaillot's 17th century map incorporates a great deal of important geographical information: greatly improved delineation of the Great Lakes, the addition of tributary rivers to the Mississippi, the re-routing of the Colorado River to the Gulf of Mexico and, of course, the re-attachment of California to the continent. All these additions and changes were essentially correct. Burden, The Mapping of North America II, 709 (5th state); Karpinski, L.C.

        Del Collegio Petroniano delle Balie latine e del solenne suo aprimento in quest'anno 1719 in Siena per dote, e istituto del Cardinale Riccardo Petroni a benefizio di tutta la Nazione Italiana ad effetto di rendere naturale la Lingua Latina quale fu presso i Romani col vero metodo degli Studj per la Gioventù dell'uno e dell'altro sesso, nel medesimo Collegio stabiliti. Seconda impressione nella quale si aggiungono i Racconti delle solenni Feste, che si fecero ne' due giorni seguenti del Carnevale.

      appresso Francesco Quinza,, in Siena, 1719 - In-4° (230x168mm), pp. (8), 213, (1) di errata + (2) bianche, legatura coeva p. pergamena rigida con titolo manoscritto anticamente al dorso. Tagli spruzzati rossi. Antiporta con ritratto del Gigli a mezzo busto entro ovale inciso su rame da Giovanni Battista Canziani; una veduta ripiegata incisa all'acquaforte di come sarebbe dovuta essere la facciata del Collegio Petroniano, "architettura di Baldasar da Siena"; una tav. f.t., sempre all'acquaforte, raffigurante le "Balie Latine Petroniane in abito Collegiale e da Camera". Testatine e capilettera ornati xilografici. Lavori di tarlo marginali a svariate cc., lievi arrossature. In buono stato. Seconda edizione, immediatamente posteriore alla prima, di questo utopico vagheggiamento del Gigli (Siena, 1660-Roma 1722), il celebre commediografo toscano, fra i maggiori autori teatrali italiani a cavallo tra Sei- e Settecento; il progetto mai attuato di questo Collegio delle Balie Latine è reso dall'autore con vividissima ipotiposi, come se esso fosse realmente esistente. Modello ideale della singolare utopia del Gigli è quello della "Repubblica" platonica. "Il suo Collegio Petronianio publicato nel 1719 e un capo d'opera é che mostra quanto ingegno avesse l'Autore, poiché seppe in esso cosi ben fingere un Istituto per allevare fanciulli nella lingua latine sin dalle fasce, che la cose fu creduta" (Lombardi, Storia delle letteratura italiana nel secolo XVIII). "Questo libro a modo della Repubblica da Platone ideata, dell'Eutopia di Tommaso Moro, e dell'Eudemia di Nicio Eritreo, è uno scherzo, al quale mirabilmente seppe bene adattare i segni di verità, che indusse in un'erronea credenza molti Forestieri persuasi dalla lettura del medesimo della esistenza del finto Instituto di allevare i Fanciullli in Siena in un Conservatorio fino dalle fasce nel morto linguaggio dei Romani" (Moreni). Il capitolo XVII contiene "L'acclamazione delle Accademiche Assicurate" e riporta nome, ruolo, nome simbolico, emblema e motto delle più illustri principesse e nobildonne italiane del tempo, per un totale di 219 nomi. Il Gigli fu anche curatore delle Opere di Santa Caterina e autore del celebre Vocabolario Cateriniano, che lo fece destituire dalla sua cattedra senese per le aspre critiche in esso rivolte alla Crusca e al parlar fiorentino. Gamba, 2260: "Formò il Gigli quest'opera sulla norma della Repubblica di Platone". Moreni I, p. 433. Peignot, Dictionnaire historique et bibliographique, passim.: "Son ''Collegio Petroniano' où il prétend que les nourrices doivent enseigner le latin aux enfants, est très-curieux".

        The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, of York, Mariner:

      London: for W. Taylor,, 1719. who lived eight and twenty years, all alone in an un-inhabited island on the coast of America, near the mouth of the great river of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates. Written by himself. [With:] The farther adventures of Robinson Crusoe; being the second and last part of his life, and of the strange surprizing accounts of his travels round three parts of the globe. Written by himself. To which is added a map of the World, in which is Delineated the Voyages of Robinson Crusoe. 2 volumes, octavo (190 × 122 mm). Sympathetically bound in 19th-century russia by Clarke & Bedford, triple-fillet border, gold-stamped supralibros of a cock standing on a trumpet encircled by the motto "Vigilantibus," spine gilt, dentelles, edges gilt, in a calf slipcase; rebacked with original spines laid down. Part 1 with engraved frontispiece; part 2 with folding double hemisphere world map. From the libraries of Archibald Acheson, 3rd Earl of Gosford (1806?-1864), with his gold-stamped supralibros; and Archibald Philip Primrose, 5th Earl of Rosebery (1847?-1929), his embossed stamp on both titles "The Durdans, Epsom" and his bookplates. Fold-tears and another small tear in map neatly mended without loss, occasional light marginal spotting in first vol., first title and preface leaves a bit short at fore-margin, tiny mend in lower outer corner of title vol. 2. First edition, first issue of both parts, of the book that is widely accepted as the first novel in English, which was an immediate success, widely translated, and which inspired a huge number of imitations and adaptations across the world since publication. The first part was published on 25 April 1719 in an edition of 1,000 copies; the sequel, Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, was published in August the same year. Rousseau recommended it as the first book which ought to be studied by a growing boy; Coleridge praised its depiction of "the universal man" and Marx used it to illustrate economic theory in action. The first English novel was modelled along the existing lines of hugely popular travel books and distantly inspired by the true story of Alexander Selkirk, yet Robinson Crusoe was "novel", as Defoe claimed in the preface to the second part, in supplying a "surprising variety of the subject". "The special form of adventure that [Defoe] chose, and even the name of his hero, have been adopted by countless imitators … This influence is not yet dissipated, for much of science fiction is basically Crusoe's island changed to a planet. At least equally relevant to the present purpose is the figure of the lonely human being subduing the pitiless forces of nature; going back to nature, indeed, and portraying the 'noble savage' in a way that made the book required reading for Rousseau's Emile" (PMM). "Defoe's immortality will always rest … especially on Robinson Crusoe, that immensely subtle, complex book with its simple plot and a character of compelling reality who appears in one archetypal incident after another. Embedded in world cultural consciousness, Robinson Crusoe has never been out of print. Most people still encounter Crusoe in childhood and never forget him. Only the Bible has been printed in more languages. From the very beginning Defoe's impact was international, as was the recognition that Robinson Crusoe was a new literary form with revolutionary power to 'instruct and delight'" (ODNB). A third part, "Serious Reflections of Robinson Crusoe", was published in 1720, not included here. It is not a continuation of the novel but rather a collection of essays on religious and moral subjects, ostensibly written by Robinson Crusoe in old age.

      . Aquarell und Pinsel in Grau, auf Velin. 15,8:20,2 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung St. K. im Kreis, nicht bei Lugt.. Die Tochter des Tapetenmalers und Radierers David Friedrich (1719-1766) war Schülerin ihres Vaters und ihres Bruders, des Historienmalers Alexander Friedrich (1744-1793). Bei ersterem erlernte sie das Zeichnen und die Anwendung der Wasserfarben, bei ihrem Bruder die Ölmalerei. Darüber hinaus bildete sie sich durch Beobachtung der Natur autodidaktisch weiter. Beachtung fand sie schon früh durch Chr.L. von Hagedorn (1712-1780), Kunstkritiker und Direktor der Dresdener Akademie. Vom Kurfürsten Friedrich August III. wurde sie 1770/71 zur Pensionärin (Stipendiatin) der Dresdener Akademie mit einer jährlichen Gratifikation von 25 Talern ernannt, 1774 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied. Schon zu Lebzeiten fand sie viel Anerkennung und war seit 1776 auf nahezu jeder Akademie-Ausstellung in Dresden mit ihren Werken vertreten. 1783 wurde ihre Stipendium-Gratifikation erhöht, zugleich erfolgte die Ernennung zur Unterlehrerin für Stilleben an der Akademie. Die Künstlerin lebte jahrelang in einer Hausgemeinschaft mit ihrem Kollegen Johann Eleazar Zeissig, gen. Schenau (1737-1805) und unterrichtete bis 1812 zahlreiche Schüler und Schülerinnen. Ihre Zeichnungen, Aquarelle und Gouachen sind u.a. im Kupferstichkabinett in Dresden, der Graphiksammlung der Kunstsammlungen Weimar zu finden. Auch in der Sammlung von König Friedrich August III. war sie mit Arbeiten vertreten.

        Lex Constitutionis: Or, The Gentleman's Law, Being, a Compleat

      1719. A Legal Guide for "Gentlemen of All Ranks" Jacob, G[iles] [1686-1744]. Lex Constitutionis: Or, The Gentleman's Law. Being, A Compleat Treatise of All the Laws and Statutes Relating to the King, And the Prerogative of the Crown; The Nobility, And House of Lords; House of Commons; Officers of State; The Exchequer and Treasury; Commissioners and Officers of the Customs; Of the Excise; Of the Post-Office; Stamp-Office; Forfeited Estates; Publick Accounts; The Navy-Office; War-Office; Lieutenancy of Counties; Justices of Peace, &c. Wherein Near One Hundred Authors of the Best Reputation, Both Ancient and Modern, On the Subject, Have Been Consulted, And are Referr'd to. And also, An Introduction to the Common Law of England, With Respect to Tenures of Lands, Descents, Marriage-Contracts, Coverture, &c. Of Property, Creation and Forfeiture of Estates; Trials of Offenders, Courts at Westminster, &c. To Which are Added, Under Their Proper Heads, The Manner of Passing Bills in Both Houses of Parliament, the Judicature of the Lords; Variety of Adjudg'd Cases; And some Curious History of Antiquity. [London]: Printed by Eliz. Nutt and R. Gosling, (assigns of Edward Sayer, Esq;) for B. Lintot, 1719. [ii], [v]-xiv, 360, [12] pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-3/4"). Recent period-style calf, blind panels to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate toning to text, faint dampspotting in places, internally clean. A handsome copy. * First edition. In his preface, Jacob indicates that he did not write this treatise on England's Constitution for the landed gentry exclusively, but for "gentlemen of all ranks," that is, the literate general public. This distinction is significant. Jacob, though certainly interested in boosting sales by attracting the widest audience possible, was an idealist who believed that widespread knowledge of the law would help create a more just society. This is also evident in his other publications, such as, A Treatise of Laws (1721), The Common Law Common-Placed (1726), Every Man His Own Lawyer (1736). Another edition of the Lex Constitutionis was published in 1737. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:102 (48). English Short-Title Catalogue T137002.

Mit 2 Kupfertafeln. *Seltene, aus dem Spanischen ins Lateinische übersetzte Publikation mit den berühmten und bis heute umstrittenen mystischen Visionen "Mistica Ciudad de Dios" (deutsch: "Die mystische Stadt Gottes") der spanischen Franziskaneräbtissin und Mystikerin Maria de Jesus. - Teil 1 beginnt mit dem Prologus Galeatus des Josephus Ximenius, gefolgt von der Mystica civitas Dei mit den Annotationes des Frater Josephus Ximinez de Samaniego. Die Teile 2 und 3 ebenfalls mit umfangreichen Annotationes verschiedener Autoren. Am Schluß die "Vita venerabilis matris, sororis Mariae a Jesu". - María de Jesus de Agreda (1602-1665) war eine Visionärin und Äbtissin des Franziskanerinnenkonvents in der spanischen Ortschaft Agreda. Nachdem ihre Familie ihr bisheriges Wohnhaus zu einem Franziskanerinnenkloster umgewandelt hatte, wurde Maria nebst ihrer Mutter und Schwester Nonne dieses Konvents "Von der unbefleckten Empfängnis". Seit 1627 leitete sie diesen als Äbtissin. Bekannt wurde sie durch ihre Visionen über das Leben der Gottesmutter. Die erste Niederschrift hatte sie aus Angst vor der Inquisition vernichtet. Nach erneuten Visionen schrieb sie das Werk dann doch (in mehreren Bänden) auf. Es erschien 5 Jahre nach ihrem Tod 1670 unter dem Titel "Mistica Ciudad de Dios" in Madrid. Das Werk wurde bereits 1672 von der Inquisition beschlagnahmt, 1686 wieder freigegeben und danach bis ins 19. Jahrhundert mehrfach auf den Index gesetzt bzw. verboten und danach wieder erlaubt. Das Werk ist in der kath. Kirche bis heute umstritten, der bereits 1673 eingeleitete Prozeß zur Seligsprechung ist bis heute noch nicht abgeschlossen. Sie gilt trotz der Kontroversen als eine der herausragenden Gestalten der spanischen Spiritualität des 17. Jahrhunderts- Die 2 Kupfertafeln zeigen eine Szene ihrer Visionen und ein umrahmtes Halbporträt in Medaillon der Maria de Jesus. - Innendeckel und die ersten 5 Blatt im ersten Band mit kleinen Wurmstichen im weißen Unterrand, ansonsten durchgehend sauber und gut erhalten.

        The Political State of Great-Britain, For The Month of April, 1719. Containing in Particular

      London: Printed for the Author, and to be sold by T. Warner .... and A. Rocayrol, (1719). Title page plus pages [323] - 452. Disbound, linen tape on spine, taped into later plain wrappers. Title page trimmed at top, affecting the first word ("The"), a few chips to edges of wrappers, very good otherwise. Pages 443 - 444 carry an account of the death of the pirate Blackbeard (Edward Teach or Edward Thatch). This account, an extract from an Admiralty Office report, describes how Blackbeard was beheaded at the orders of Lieutenant Maynard, and his head "hung under the boltsprit of his Sloop, and carried in that manner to Virginia ...." Very scarce; the only recorded copy sold was in the Caren Archive (sold by Bonhams April 7, 2014, auction 21962, Treasures from The Caren Archive, Lot 37), and that copy wanted the title page, which is present here. The POLITICAL STATE is described thus in a popular account of the editor, Boyer: .... "[A] monthly periodical, The Political State of Great Britain, being an impartial account of the most material occurrences, ecclesiastical, civil, and military, in a monthly letter to a friend in Holland (38 volumes, 1711&#150;29). Its contents, which were those of a monthly newspaper, included abstracts of the chief political pamphlets published on both sides, and, like the Annals, is, both from its form and matter, very useful for reference. The Political State is, moreover, particularly noticeable as being the first periodical, issued at brief intervals, which contained a parliamentary chronicle, and in which parliamentary debates were reported with comparative regularity and with some approximation to accuracy".

        Chirurgie, in welcher alles, was zur Wund Artzney gehöret, nach der neuesten und besten Art gründlich abgehandelt und in vielen Kupfer-Tafeln, die neuerfundenen und dienlichsten Instrumente nebst den bequemsten

      - Nürnberg, J. Hoffmann seel. Erben, 1719, Kl.4°, (14), 753, (23) pp., Frontispice, 22 gefalt. doppelblattgroßen Kupfertafeln, Pergamenteinband der Zeit; 2 fehlende Blätter, Kapitel beigelgt aus anderer Auflage; feines Exemplar. Die extrem seltene Erstausgabe des Heisters in deutscher Sprache - Diese edition principes ist eines der größten Rarissima der älteren chirurgischen Literatur. Eines Ausgabe von 1718, wie von Billroth bis Garrison fälschlich angeführt, hat es nicht gegeben. Zwar ist das Vorwort von 1718, jedoch erst im Oktober verfasst. Außerdem trägt die Ausgaben 1724 die Bezeichnung "2.Auflage"! - - DER DEUTSCHE HEISTER EIN MARKSTEIN DER CHIRURGIE ! - Hauptwerk des Begründers der wissenschaftlichen Chirurgie in Deutschland. Die gründliche Bearbeitung der ganzen Chirurgie von der einfachen Wundbehandlung bis zur größten Operation, und die sorgfältige Darstellung des gesamten Instrumentariums, war ein bedeutender Fortschritt. Der große Erfolg seines Werkes ist daran ersichtlich, das seine Chirurgie in zahlreichen Auflagen erschienen, in vielen Sprachen übersetzt, einer ganzen Medizinergeneration dienlich war. Es ist eines der ersten vollständigen Handbücher der Chirurgie und enthält einige der schönsten chirurgischen Kupferstiche der medizinischen Literatur überhaupt. Eine ganze Reihe heute noch gebräuchlicher Instrumente werden hier erstmalig vorgestellt. - Lorenz Heister (1693-1758), geboren in Frankfurt, studierte bei Ruysch, Albinus u. Boerhaave. Er war Professor der Anatomie und Chirurgie in Altdorf bei Nürnberg und Helmstedt.

        Libellus de materia medica et remediorum formulis, quae serviunt aphorismis de cognoscendis et curandis morbis.

      . Lugduni Batavorum, Apud Isaacum Severinum, 1719, 8°, 12, 259, 45 pp, (1 p. Hi Libri Medici .. Is. Severinum), Pergamenteinband der Zeit; feines Exemplar.. The 'genuine edition' - the rare first edition of Boerhaave's collection of prescriptions ! - - Herman Boerhaave (1768-1738) "is remarkably moderate in the preface to his own edition that he wrote on 1 February 1719, and this moderation is in contrast to his sharp criticism of the pirated editions. In this preface he observes that a 'vir eruditus' in London had allowed Boerhaave's own collection of prescriptions to be published against his will and that many harmful errors had crept in. Therefore he felt obliged to publish the work himself with the necessary corrections and additions: 'so prompted, I revised and corrected it, and made some additions: use it therefore and be relieved from copying the work'. - - In order to guarantee the authenticity of the book he made the publisher Severinus sign personally every copy. The small book ran to 259 pages and was provided with an extensive index. It was eagerly received. Boerhaave himself published new editions in 1721 and in 1727, and in other countries it was frequently reprinted, even after Boerhaave's death. The last edition appeared in 1776." G.A. Lindeboom, 2nd. Ed., pp.79-80 - - "Preface dated February 18, 1719. Index of Samuel DuRy, doctor of medicine and practising physician. One finds on the inside of the titlepage of the first edition: "Auctor nulla hujus Libelli agnoscit exempla, nisi quae siut edita apud Bibliopolam, qui sum ipse nomen hic subscripsit. (Signature: I. Severinus)." Lindeboom,1 st. Ed., p.56 - - Lindeboom No.284; Lindeboom, Dutch med. biogr., 179/186; Wellcome vol. II, 189; Blake p. 54; Heirs of Hippocrates 741 (engl. transl. 1739).
