A few small repairs to bindings, some light, scattered spotting to contents. An excellent set.

The first part was originally published on 25 April 1719; the third edition was published about 6 June. 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.

Copies of the book with both volumes in first edition are rare and now prohibitively expensive for most collectors.

        The Works of William ChillingworthThe Religion of Protestants A Safe Way to SalvationNine SermonsHis Letter to Mr LewgarNine Additional DiscoursesAm Answer to some Passages in Rushworth?s DialoguesTwo Letters Never Before Printed

      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. Externally, bound in old calf, spine chipped,joints cracked, with a small loss of leather on front board, corners worn. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        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.

        Mémoires pour servir ? l?histoire de France. Contenant ce qui s'est passé de plus remarquable dans ce royaume depuis 1515. jusqu?en 1611. (Ed. Jean Godefroy).

      Heirs of Herman Demen,, Cologne [Brussels] 1719 - A finely-illustrated history of France in the sixteenth and early-seventeenth century. The second part (1589-1611) is printed here for the first time; the first part originally having been published in 1621 as Journal des choses memorables advenues durant tout le regne de Henry III (Cioranesco 13602).The imprint is certainly false, and Brussels is the more likely origin, though the woodcut device on the first title is that of Antoine Vincent of Lyon. The frontispiece is notable and is a violent allegory of this turbulent century, the female personification of France is beset by a crowd of petitioners in the form of vagrants, a monk, nobles and merchants while in the background several brutal excutions are enacted, with the city of Paris and the towers of Notre Dame in the distance. It is the work of Richard van Orley (1663-1732), a Brussels painter and engraver, and engraved by François Harrewijn (1700-1764), also a Brussels engraver, pupil of Romeyn de Hooghe, known primarily for his portraits of historical figures. Harrewijn also supplied the excellent suite of 33 portraits of kings and queens (including Mary Stuart) and leading members of church and state. 2 vols, 8vo (170 x 100 mm), pp. [xvi] (including dramatic engraved frontispiece, signed Rich. van Orley and Harrewijn), 334, [46]; [4] leaves (including repeated frontispiece), 384, [56] titles printed in red and black, with woodcut devices; 33 full-page engraved portraits (signed Harrewijn). Very light browning. Contemporary mottled calf, spines with 5 raised bands, gilt in compartments. Corners rubbed, two joints starting, bookplates removed. An attractive copy.

        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.

Forey, 1719. First edition and a very fine copy of this handsomely illustrated work. This book contains the description of the collection of models of machinery formed by Nicolas Grollier de Servière (1593-1686), a great nephew of the famous bibliophile, Jean Grolier. Written by the collector's grandson Gaspard (1677-1745), the volume contains descriptions and illustrations of numerous models of lathe work, clocks, bridges, military equipment and devices, sluices, locks, various water-raising machines, water and wind mills, pontoon bridges, an ingenious cyclometer mounted on a wheelbarrow, a revolving machine for reference books, a wheelchair, and drawing apparatus. "It is not clear whether all the mechanisms described were actual models, or whether some drawings and descriptions were included.

        Carte du Canada ou de la Nouvelle France, & des Découvertes qui y ont été faites

      Amsterdam: Chez L'Honoré & Châtelain, 1719. Copper-engraved map, in excellent condition. Sheet size: 18 x 21 5/8 inches. An important and fascinating map of Canada from Châtelain's celebrated 'Atlas Historique' This very finely engraved and epistemologically interesting map was one of the most important maps of Canada printed during its time, and was included in Châtelain's Atlas Historique. It is largely derived from Guillaume de L'Isle's famous 1703 map of Canada, and the geography of the Great Lakes, eastern Canada and New England is quite accurate for the time. 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," 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 'Crèvecouer' 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, supposedly placing one within close reach of 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. The text, 'Remarque Historique' that fills the northwestern part of the map describes the history of New France from the days of Jacques Cartier to contemporary times.

        MONASTIC RULES: Regula sancti Benedicti and Regula sancti Augustini episcopi

      MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT IN LATIN ON VELLUM WITH MODERN ILLUMINATION, Italy (Venice?), late fourteenth century with added modern miniatures. 145 x 115 mm. 79 folios, back pastedown made from a fourteenth(?)-century Italian Choir Book with music on four-line red staves, complete (collation: i4+1, ii6, iii-vi8, vii10, viii8, ix4, x8, xi6; f. 1 is inserted, ff. 2-5 belong between ff. 8 and 9), catchwords, written in cursive gothic bookhands, Rule of Benedict frame-ruled in pencil with up to 23 long lines (justification c. 115 x 65 mm.), and the Rule of Augustine written with 18 lines per page, without rubrics, on leaves ruled in hard-point; TWO MODERN FULL-PAGE MINIATURES: St. Benedict (f. 1v) and St. Augustine (f. 65v), likely added in the nineteenth or twentieth century, small red initials, some with pen decoration. BINDING: Bound in nineteenth-century burgundy velvet over pasteboard, some signs of wear, the velvet and joints worn, some cords broken, but in sound condition. TEXT: This attractively written pocket-sized manuscript contains an extremely rare pairing of texts: the two greatest foundation documents of early Western monasticism. The addition of the two modern miniatures, executed in a style based on fifteenth-century Italian miniatures adds greatly to the charm of the volume. St. Benedict of Nursia (c. 480-c. 550) is considered the founder of Western monasticism; his Rule, written c. 540, had a profound effect on the lives of religious men and women in the Middle Ages, and has remained the leading guide for communal monastic life down to the present day. The Rule of St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), although written in the fifth century, did not have a wide influence until the late eleventh century, when it became the standard rule by which Canons Regular (secular, or non-monastic clerics) ordered their lives. Its sanity, adaptability, and the repute of its author led to its adoption by a number of monastic bodies, both active and contemplative, including the Dominicans. PROVENANCE: Combining these two monastic rules in one manuscript is unusual; normally one would not expect a Benedictine monk to have wanted a copy of the Rule of Augustine, and vice versa. Manuscripts containing both Rules appear to be exceptionally rare: the Schoenberg Database records only the present manuscript and one other (sold in 1719). The original owner of the manuscript may have been a layman, or a monk or canon with a scholarly interest in religious rules. In the fifteenth century the manuscript had a Benedictine owner, as shown by the wording of the title he added on f. 2. Sold at L’Art ancien, Zurich, Catalogue 38: Manuskripte und Inkunabeln, Bücher des XVI. und XVIII. Jahrhunderts, 17 June 1964, no. 261. Belonged to the Harry and Virginia Walton Collection, Covington, Virginia; bought c. 1964 (not recorded in Faye and Bond). CONDITION: lower margins of ff. 8 and 65 cut away and repaired using medieval parchment, with minor signs of use and age, but generally in very good condition throughout.

        Relation de l'inauguration Solomnelle de Sa Sacrée Majesté Imperiale et Catholique, Charles VI. Empereur des Romains.Celebrée à Gand Ville Capitale de la Province, le XVIII. Octobre 1717

      Ghent: Augstin Graet, 1719. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Tall folio [44 x 27 cm], engraved frontispiece and 6 large folding plates by Helybrouck, Berterham and Harrewyn after van Volxsom, J. Colin and Eykens, 32 pp., including title and first text leaf printed in red and black. Bound in 19th c vellum, morocco title label on spine. Provenance: Victor Massena, Prince of Essling (1836-1910). Minor toning but generally a tall and fresh copy, with the plates in fine impression. First edition of a sumptuous festival book commemorating the inauguration of HRE Charles VI in 1717 as Count of Flanders, featuring an allegorical frontispiece and 6 large folding plates, including four engravings of the extravagant fireworks displays that followed the ceremony.Graet's text provides a meticulous day-by-day account of the festivities, including the cavalcade's departure from Brussels on the 16th of October and its arrival at Mont Blandin Abbey in Ghent, the musical program of the Mass at St. Bavo, and especially the opulent splendor of the inauguration on the afternoon of the 18th at the Marché du Vendredi (Vrijdagmarkt, Ghent's largest public square), for which an enormous stage had been specially designed by the architect Jacob Colin. The inauguration engraving-nearly a full meter wide-is signed by Colin, C.Eykens and the engraver J.B. Berterham, who also executed the engraving of the interior of the Cathedral. A third plate depicts a rather grisly triumphal arch, celebrating the expansion of the Austrian Empire with pikes bearing the severed heads of Turkish generals.The spacious Vrijdagmarkt, with its central column and statue of HRE Charles V, is also the backdrop for two of the three feu d'artifice plates. Curiously, each of these engravings depicts the incendiary towers in two stages: not only during the detonation of their pyrotechnic fountains, but also prior to their lighting, when their thousands of canisters still hang intact and untouched. The most striking of these plates, by Jacob Harrewijn, depicts the towers at night, looming over the Gothic façade of the Hôtel de Ville.Though Charles VI acceded as Count of Flanders in 1713, the protracted transfer of the province from the Spanish Habsburgs to the Austrian Habsburgs delayed festivities until 1717, at which point no expense was spared to celebrate the inauguration. Graet's fête book even proclaims Charles "Roy des Espanges," though that title had already been won in the War of the Spanish Succession by Philip V.*Berlin 2959; Watanabe 2730; Landwehr Ceremonies 198; Lotz, p. 104; Salatino, Incendiary Art, pp. 33-36.

One of the most beautiful and elaborately engraved maps of the Americas ever published, Châtelain's famous map shows North and South America, the Pacific Ocean, the west coast of Europe and Africa, and the known coast of Australasia. California is shown as an island. The many inset plans, views, portraits and scenes make this a visual encyclopaedia of the discovery and exploration of the Americas. A vignette of the Niagara Falls has beavers in the foreground walking on their hind legs, clutching bundles of sticks; other vignettes show native American weddings and funerals, and panning for gold in the River Plate. There are numerous inset maps of different ports such as the Cape of Good Hope, and islands mainly in South America; and nine portraits of explorers in medallions at the top edge with text of their exploits on ribbons attached. The borders of the inset maps and illustrations are decorated with animals and plants. There are several short paragraphs of text on the map, giving information about the features, government and people of different countries, the tides and winds.

        A Compleat Collection of State Tryals and Proceedings upon Impeachments for High Treason and Other Crimes and Misdemeanours. In five volumes

      38 - London - Timothy Goodwin, 1719 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A complete first edition set of this fascinating collection of British trials from 1407 to 1709. First Edition. 'From the reign of King Henry the Fourth, to the end of the reign of Queen Anne'. 'With an exact alphabetical table to the whole'. Complete in four volumes (1719), with a supplementary fifthvolume (1738): 'A new abridgement and critical review of the state trials and impeachments for high treason; from the reign of King Richard II, down to the remarkable trial of Captain Porteous in the tenth year of the reign of his present majesty King George II'. Thomas Salmon (bap. 1679, d. 1767) was a historian and travel writer. Though he had no formal training for a profession he was said by the antiquary William Cole to have no small turn for writing, as his many productions show, most of which were written when he resided at Cambridge (BL, Add. MS 5880, fol. 198v). In 1716 or after he was recruited by the printer John Darby the younger (d. 1733) to edit what appeared as A Compleat Collection of State-tryals, in four volumes (1719), beginning with the trial of William Thorpe for heresy in 1407, and ending with the impeachment of Henry Sacheverell in 1710. Salmon had probably not led the collection of the material, but according to critics his tory political views were evident in his selection from the original sources. Salmon published abridged versions of the state trials in 1720 and again in 1737, by which time a second edition had appeared, in 1730, edited by Sollom Emlyn. Despite the improvements of Emlyn and, later, Francis Hargrave, many of Salmon's editorial decisions, particularly relating to seventeenth-century trials, survived into the edition of 180926, edited by Thomas Bayly Howell and Thomas Jones Howell. DNB. Condition: In full speckled calf bindings. Externally, rubbed with some loss and peeling to the leather of volumes II and IV. One hinge strained,six boards held by the cords only, and three boards detached but present. Internally, generally firmly bound although thefirst fewpagesof volumes II, III and V are working loose or detached but present. Generally clean with just a few scattered spots, although volume V has some more frequent light foxing. Some evidence of past worming to the first and last few pages of the volumes. Pastedowns coming away from boards. Copperplate ink marks to front pastedowns and front free endpapers. P. 611 of Volume III is detached but present and has a large closed tear and chipping. There is a torn pictorial bookplate to the front pastedown of the volume V. Would benefit from a sympathetic rebinding. Overall: FAIR with a good interior..
