TOUCHET, Mervyn (Earl of Castlehaven)
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: First Edition; Hard Cover]

HARRIS, JOHN.
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 typ … [Click Below for Full Description]

William Chillingworth
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..

Captain William Snelgrave
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[L'ESTOILE, Pierre de].
Cologne [Brussels]: Heirs of Herman Demen, 1719. 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 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Thomas Salmon
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 Em … [Click Below for Full Description]

DEFOE, Daniel
London,: W. Taylor, 1719-, 1720.. Three volumes, octavo, frontispiece and one folding plate (originally the frontispiece to vol. III) in volume one, folding map in volume two; occasional marking and foxing rarely affecting the text; generally a very handsome set, the first two volumes in contemporary sprinkled calf, the third (slightly shorter) in contemporary panelled calf, all volumes neatly rebacked to style, spines with double red morocco labels. A handsome set of all three of the Robinson Crusoe books by Daniel Defoe: the ground-breaking first work, the lesser-known sequel of the same year, and the rare second sequel, the Serious Reflections of 1720, with the appendix describing Crusoe's ultimate voyage into space, the 'Vision of the Angelick World'.This is an excellent set, with the second and third volumes present in first edition, while the first volume is the third edition. Such was the original novel's popularity that it went through four editions in four months; contemporarily formed sets of the three works are frequently composed of mixed editions. This early set of Defoe's masterpiece has uniform bookplates of Thomas Philip Earl de Grey in all three volumes, as well as the bookplates of Henry Duke of Kent in the first two.Robinson Crusoe, one of the most famous of all English books, all but founded the imaginary voyage tradition. Based on the story of the Scots sailor Alexander Selkirk, Defoe turns a genuine experience of bare survival into an elaborate tale. Indeed, Crusoe's hard-fought survival and eventual moral redemption is one of the most important and in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Keulen, Gerard Van: [Saint Thomas]: [Dutch West Indies]:
[Amsterdam]. 1719.. Sheet map, 22 1/2 x 38 1/2 inches. Modern color. Handsomely matted and framed. Old fold lines, some minor wear. Very good. Large and handsome chart of St. Thomas, now in the U.S. Virgin Islands but then a Dutch colony, made by the famed Van Keulen cartography firm. This map was originally published as part of a 1720 edition of Van Keulen's DE GROOTE NIEUWE VERMEERDERDE ZEE-ATLAS..., a significant work containing one hundred maps and charts (cf. Phillips). The chart shows the entire island on a very large scale, with its topographical features and harbor depths, as well as the forts and settlements. Two insets on the right show a detailed view of the harbor of St. Thomas and the harbor of the neighboring island of St. John. Along the bottom are five profile elevations, showing the island from different angles. The map is one of the handsomest maps of the island made in the colonial period. Johannes van Keulen enrolled in the Dutch booksellers' guild in 1678 and began publishing sea charts and atlases. That same year, his son, Gerard (1678- 1726), was born, who would go on to become a skillful engraver and a significant asset to the firm. "This son was endowed with talent. He was a skillful engraver and proficient in mathematics and navigational science. Gerard was responsible for establishing the scientific basis of the firm of Van Keulen" (Koeman). Gerard van Keulen took over the family business in 1704 and would go on to become the hydrographer for the East India Company in 1714, a prestigious and important office. His son, Johannes, took up the … [Click Below for Full Description]
