Kräutern, Sträuchen, Bäumen, Bluhmen und anderer Erd-Gewachsen Art, Krafft und Würckung dergestalt beschreiben werden, dass man dieses Werck statt einer Botanischen Bibliothec haben, jedes Kraut zu seiner rechten Haupt-Art bringen, auch dessen Nutzen in der Artzney deutlich und umständlich finden... Frankfurt, Anton Heinscheidt, 1719. (issued with:) (WELLING, G.) Opus Mago-cabalisticum et theologicum. Von Uhrsprung und Erzeugung des Salzes... Frankfurt, Anton Heinscheidt, 1719. 2 volumes. Folio (336 x 205mm), pp. (xx), 584, (24); (ii), (viii), 80; with 223 plates of botanical emblems in text, 387 engraved plates and 10 engraved 'occult' plates, 9 handcoloured, in second volume; old stamp inked out on title, a fine fresh copy in contemporary German calf, spines gilt, a little wear to heads and tails of spines. First edition of this immensely appealing botanical 'museum', a compilation of engraved plates by Merian, the de Brys, etc. The botanical emblem plates are from Ludwig, Prince of Anhalt's 'Der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft Nahmen, Vorhaben, Gemählde und Wörter, engraved and published by Matthäus Merian in 1646. Volume two contains plates from the de Bry-Merian 'Florilegium renovatum et auctum' (Frankfurt, Matthäus Merian 1641-47), the plates of which in turn derive from several sources. These include Johann Theodor de Bry's 'Florilegium novum' (Oppenheim 1612-14), Ferrari's 'De florum cultura' (1633) and Michael Rupert Besler's 'Gazophylacium Rerum Naturalium e regno Vegetabili', (Nuremberg 1642) along with other sources. There is a further series of plates with engraved versions of the woodcuts of Mattioli, Bauhin, and others, and miscellaneous plates taken from various publications, including some ephemera which are unavailable in the originals. The final ten 'occult' plates pertain to the second title, 'Opus mago-cabalisticum', a hermetic work on the origin of salt. Valentini's assemblage of plates comprises a pictorial 'museum' of botanical images, in keeping with the spirit of another work of his, 'Museum museorum' (1704-14), a collection of 'Wunderkammer' texts and images. Valentini (1657-1729) was a physician, professor of medicine at Giessen, and a collector of natural history objects. He must also have acquired the Merian and de Bry plates. The plates are arranged as follows: two plates of floral parts and 223 emblem plates in the first volume, and 385 plates numbered 1-383, with two plates numbered 261 (a and b) and an unnumbered plate between 215 and 216; this is followed by the Welling work with its 10 plates at the end. Unfortunately, because of the emblem and florilegium plates, the Valentini has become a popular target for 'breakers', with the result that most copies that have turned up recently have been broken. Hunt 447 and 448; Johnston, Cleveland herbal, botanical and horticultural collections 344 (without the Welling); Nissen BBI, 2037..

Tomus Primus (3 Parts, all). (Theodicy: Essays on the Goodness of God, the Freedom of Man and the Origin of Evil).

      Franckfurt, Bencard, 1719. 8vo. Contemp. full vellum. A few small brownspots to covers. Large engraved titlevignette. (48),(40),408,(12) pp. 1 folded table (between p.48/49). Clean and fine.. Extremely scarce first Latin edition of Leibniz's hugely influential work "Essais de Theodicée sur la Bonté de Dieu, la Liberté de L'Homme, et L'Origine du Mal" (1710). It is his importent treatise on the goodnes of God, the free will of man and the causes of evil in the world, The principal subject of the work being the problem of liberty and free will. It is the only larger philosophical work published by Leibnitz himself.The "Théodicée" was a response to skeptical Pierre Bayle, who wrote in his work Dictionnaire Historique et Critique that, after rejecting three attempts to solve it, he saw no rational solution to the problem of evil.The work was composed at the instigation of Sophia Charlotte, with whom Leibniz had conversed concerning the views of Bayle. In response to a request from Prince Eugene for an abstract of the Théodicée, Leibniz in 1714 wrote the "Principes de la nature et de la grâce fondées en raison and the Monadologie".It is often the case, that this Latin edition is followed by the small work "Causa Dei Asserta per Justitiam Ejus..." (32) pp. This work is not withbound here.Ravier "Bibliographie des Oeuvres de Leibniz", No 344. - PMM (1710-edition)

        A New Map of America From the latest Observations

      London: [1719]. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. 20 5/8 x 23 inches. Unusual English depiction of California as an island and with a conjectural mapping of the northwest coast. This is one of relatively few English maps to depict California as an island. Depicting all of North and South America, the map includes a conjectural northwest coast, likely derived from Morden (with the farthest north point on that coast to be a town named on the map Desolation). A large mythical Lake Thoaga is shown in western Canada and a wide river is shown extending from western Virginia to the Gulf of Mexico across the Florida panhandle. The cartouche is a lovely composition of native peoples and animals.

        The Tryal of Mervin Lord Audley, Earl of Castlehaven, for a Rape and Sodomy. Also the Proceedings between the Duke of Norfolk and his Dutchess

      Volume II. London: Printed for E. Curll in Fleet Street (1719) - Volume II. London: Printed for E. Curll in Fleet Street (1719). Hardcover. 58pp. A record of the famous Castlehaven sodomy trial in 1631, among a number of similar publications issued by this publisher to exploit the case for his own commercial purposes and which fed on the "sodomite-hunting" that was rampant during the period. The 2nd Earl of Castlehaven was convicted of abetting the rape of his wife and of committing sodomy with his male servants and the trial was a spectacular sex scandal, resulting in the execution of Castlehaven and his servants. Included with this publication is another sensational trial from 1699 involving adultery and divorce of Henry Duke of Norfolk. Contemporary calf boards, front panel missing, front endpaper a bit browned and worn. Rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE HISTORY OF KENT. IN FIVE PARTS. CONTAINING, I. AN EXACT TOPOGRAPHY OR DESCRIPTION OF THE COUNTY. II. THE CIVIL HISTORY OF KENT. III. THE ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY OF KENT. IV. THE HISTORY OF THE ROYAL NAVY OF KENT. VOL. I. (ALL PUBLISHED)

      London : Printed and sold by D. Midwinter, at the Three Crowns in St Pauls Church-Yard 1719 - Folio. Portrait facing Title, Dedication, Preface, Ode to Kent, list of subscribers + 592 pp. + xl index . Illustrated with a large folding engraved map of the county within heraldic border. Maps of Romney Marsh and the Isle of Thanet, and 39 views (35 double-page) of Kentish houses including a fine panorama of Rochester and Chatham and the famous view of the Pantiles at Tunbridge Wells. Bound in full paneled calf, gilt expertly rebacked. A nice tall copy with the plates and maps in very good preservation, occasional light foxing to fore-edges affecting one or two plates and the text lightly browned as is normal, a few paper faults and the binding worn on extremites, but a very good copy. This copy has the heraldic bookplate of Robert Bristow of London. This magnificent illustrated history was never to be completed and Harris's work was not published until shortly after his death in 1719. It is much prized today for the sumptuous plates and maps which provide us with a picture of Kent at the beginning of the eighteenth century. The views of the great Kentish houses, by Kip and Badeslade, which utilize the birds-eye projection, show not only the house and gardens in detail but the countryside around and its cultivation. The great map of the county by Parker, within the coats of arms of the noblemen and gentry is, probably, the most splendid and decorative ever printed. The Map of Romney Marsh is also a rarity. This book is becoming very hard to find complete as the value of this type of illustration has caused numerous copies to be broken up. KENT HISTORY KENT

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.

      London - Walthoe, Knapton, Tooke, Midwinter, Robinson, & Cowse, 1719 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A compendium of the works of prominent 17th-century theologian William Chillingworth, bound regally in old calf. Chillingworth (1602-44) was born in Oxford and educated therein at Trinity College in the University. Inspired by the Jesuits and seeking a 'certainty' he had yet to find, Chillingworth converted to Catholicism and travelled to Douai in 1630; however, he returned to England before a year had elapsed and declared himself Protestant once more, though he remained skeptical about 'dogmatic certainty' in his ongoingsearch for truth. He was a Royalist and an Episcopalian during the civil war, and died after being captured at Arundel castle, having designed the siege engines used at Gloucester. The thread of Chillingworth's reservations against dogmaticzeal runs through histheological writings, in which he asserts the importance of 'unfettered' rational inquiry and consciential conviction in spiritual matters. Condition: Internally, bindings holding firm. Bookplates of Ogles, Duncan, and Cochrane Booksellers, Prof. David Arthur Pailin, and C. M. College Library on front pastedown; in old ink C M College Library, Bala on verso of blank sheet at front; red ink stain, about an inch long, on edge of final leaves and very slightly penetrating onto a few pages.

        A New Account of Some Parts of Guinea and the Slave-Trade

      William Snelgrave was an English sea captain, slave trader, and ivory trader on the West African coast. He reportedly treated his slaves better than most traders of the day.  In what passed for notable humanity at the time,Snelgrave provided his slaves two meals a day, visits to the deck, and pipes and tobacco. He also allowed the women and children to be unchained. He was captured by pirate captains La Bouche, Cocklyn, and Howell Davis along the coast of West Africa in 1719. He was originally attacked by Cocklyn's quartermaster for failing to surrender, beaten, and shot in the arm.  What allegedly spared Snelgrave was his men crying out: "For God's sake, don't kill our captain, for we were never with a better man."  Snelgrave wrote about his captivity with the pirates. He described how Davis claimed that "their reasons for going a-pirating were to revenge themselves on base merchants and cruel commanders of ships." This may explain why Snelgrave was spared.  In 1727 he arrived at Whydah, which had just been captured by Dahomey. His account of this event, which he learned of second hand, has been the main source of many modern historians.  In 1734 he published A New Account of Some Parts of Guinea and the Slave-Trade. He was not critical of the slave trade like other traders became, and dedicated his book to the European merchants of West Africa.  Here is the first edition of Snelgrave's book.  The binding is recent and fine in 3/4 brown leather with raised spine bands and gilt rules over marbled paper-covered boards with leather corners.  The contents are bright and clean with no spotting.  The original folding map is present, properly folded, and untorn, though professionally reinforced on the back along the edges.
