      London: J. Wilcox, B. Creake, and John Sackfield, 1720. First edition of this spurious adaptation of Boerhaave.

Burton (early owner's name in ink on pastedown); some old unobtrusive pencilled marginalia. "One of Boerhaave's pupils published an adaption of his 'Libellus de materie medica', greatly amplified from the lectures of his master.

Nel 1707 pubblica il primo atlante, arricchendolo rapidamente fino a superare il centinaio di carte con il ''Grosser Atlas" di 126 carte. Muore nel 1723. Esemplare perfettamente conservato.

        A New Map of the North Parts of America A New Map of the North Parts of America claimed by France under ye Names of Louisiana, Mississipi, Canada and New France with ye Adjoyning Territories of England and Spain

      Herman Moll,, London, 1720 - Moll's map of North America An emphatic statement in the cartographic wrangling between Britain and France over America, Hermann Moll's map of North Americafirmlyrebuts the claims made by Guillaume de L'Islein his 1718 map of the Mississippi Valley, which had "significantly reduced the western boundaries of the British colonies along the east coast, thereby adding territory claimed by England to French Louisiana" (Degrees of Latitude). Although Moll borrows elements from de L'Isle, he enlarges the map as a whole and makes radical changes to the extent of French claims in America, challenging the claim to the Valley and to the territory of Ohio. Moll calls to arms any English property owners in Carolina, drawing their attention tothe 'Incroachments' of the French map on their 'Properties' and on the land of their Indian allies. The map shows the area east of the Mississippi as English, and challenges French claims in the east by returning part of Florida to the control of Spain. An inscription acknowledges the debt to deL'Isle for the outline of southwest Louisiana, but does not pronounce on the competing claims to the state or on the British claim to Carolina. As noted by Reinhartz, an important feature is Moll's coastal geography, depicting barrier islands and the mouths of various rivers draining into the Gulf of Mexico. He also makes some interesting observations on local wild life, including the"Country full of Beeves" and the Spanish cattle which would eventually become the Texas longhorns, and notes the positions and allegiances of Native American nations. Moll used de L'Isle's map and a manuscript map in the Public Record Office as sources, which provided the detail of both his cartographical and cultural data. He made four large maps of North America, establishing himself as the leading English mapmaker in the early eighteenth century. Degrees of Latitude 21; Cumming British Maps of Colonial America pp.10-12; cf. Cumming The Southeast in Early Maps pp.21-24; Phillips p.570; cf.

        Memoires de monsieur Dugay Trouin, lieutenant général des armées navalles, commandeur de l'ordre militaire de St Louis

      Exceedingly rare manuscript of Du Guay Trouin's Memoires, the famous French corsair; amongst the most appealing privateering narratives of all times and the basis to the best seller of maritime literature of the 18th century. The memoires of the Saint-Malo corsair were published for the first time in 1730 in a "pirate" edition, followed by Mortier's beautifully printed version. Du Guay (1673 - 1736), active during the last years of the 17th and beginnings of the 18th century, was one of the most famous French privateers and naval officers of his time; during his short though highly profitable life, Du Guay engaged English, Dutch and Portuguese fleets. Arguably, his most celebrated accomplishment was the defeat of the Brazilian fleet at Lisbon and the capture of Rio de Janeiro in 1711; a decade later, around 1720-1721, the first redaction of his memoires was possibly begun. Its intention was to establish the truth about the naval events occurred during his expeditions, setting forth right those by the Comte de Forbin. His retirement was almost final, with one exception, a demonstration of force in the Mediterranean in 1731, to impress Dey d'Alger. The way it´s written, with virtually no pause, shows a straightforward prose, with no corrections, nor intention to facilitate reading to a broad audience. It was written at the request of family and friends, and to be circulated amongst his most intimate circle. Furthermore, the sincerity and concern for truth latent across the memoires, not building a character but including personal details of the experiences, often not to his advantage, leads us to confirm the belief that it was not meant for publishing. Du Guay´s Memoires were published for the first time in 1730 in the famed "pirate edition" (Cf. Borba de Moraes and others), which raised the anger of Du Guay and obligated him to set the story right. The 1730 edition copies one of his manuscript journals. A most lavishly printed one would follow shortly in 1740, by Mortier, this time in large format, illustrated and revised by Du Guay himself; this, however, had the text edited and made easier to read, thus "truncated" of Du Guay´s crudely detailed narrative. De Carfort, the French historian claims that "du Guay Trouin fit lui-même plusieurs exemplaires de son manuscrit, de sa propre main, et les donna aux membres de sa famille et à ses amis... Tous ces manuscrits sont plus ou moins différents les uns des autres, principalement comme style, parce que ce ne sont pas des copies, mais plutôt des répliques du manuscrit primitif. Mais le fonds est le même. Ils se reconnaissent facilement à l'écriture, à l'orthographe, et surtout au manque absolu de ponctuation : on n'y trouve presque pas un seul point, une virgule, une seule apostrophe, et très peu d'accents." The style, however, is roughly the same to all versions of the manuscripts, no commas, points, quotes or accents. Borba, commenting on the 1730 edition, which was published after one of the aforementioned versions -and probably unaware of the existence of the surviving manuscript versions of the Memoires- says "This edition is interesting in spite of its inaccuracies and defects. It was published by Pierre de Villepontaux and contains many details of the author´s life and youthful adventures that were later suppressed from the manuscript at the request and advice of Cardinal Fleury". Provenance: with engraved armorial bookplate of "Emmanuel Jeanbernat barthelemy Ferrari Doria". Borba de Moraes, 271 (1730 edition). Polak, 2855.

First Strype Edition, Best and most desirable edition of Stow's magisterial study—the "starting point of all inquiry into the subject of Elizabethean London." Complete in two folio volumes; each of the six 'books,' introduced by a drop-head title, with its own pagination: [4], xii, xlii, [2], 308, 208, 285, [1]; [2], 120, 459, [1], 93, [3], 143, [1], 26, [2]pp, with 70 plates, plans and maps (31 double-page or folding), including those of London, Westminster and Southwark.

Maslen & Lancaster. Bowyer ledgers, 584. Lowndes V, 2526. Gibson's Library, p. 258. ESTC Citation No. T48975. This edition of Stow's Survey was the first to contain a series of ward maps: "Many of these maps are excellent. Their clarity and accuracy fulfill the requirements of the student of London history" (Hyde). Fifth and Best Edition.Titlepage in red and black. Each of the 6 ’books’ has its own pagination, and is introduced by a drop-head title. Adams London Illustrated 25; Lowndes III, 2526; Upcott II, pp, 605-617; Darlington and Howgego 16, 8 (London maps). "Fifth and grandest edition. John Strype was already collecting materials for the text by 1703, and an ambitious reprint 'with very great Additions throughout, and illustrated with about 100 large Copper Cutts .. requiring much Time and Great expence' was advertised as early as 1708. The advertisement was on the title verso of Hatton's New View of London, a smaller and cheaper book whose popularity actually caused the postponement of Strype's more monumental work. His two folio volumes cost six guineas and the print run was probably at least 500 copies. He included what he believed to be Stow's entire original text, which had become conflated with the 1618 and 1633 editions of Anthony Munday, clearly identifying his own additions in the margins. John Kip, who had been responsible for the views of London buildings in volume I of Mortier's Nouveau theatre de la Grande Bertagne (1707), is credited with about half the 28 engraved views of 'eminent places'. In addition there are two folding general maps of London, one showing the city as it was in Queen Elizabeth's time, 17 ward maps (bks. II-III) and 20 parish maps (bks. IV and VI). The only map to be signed is the Parish of St. Mary Rotherhithe revised by John Pullen and engraved by John Harris. (2)" Christies John Stow's Survey of London, first published in 1598, brims with amusing descriptions and anecdotes as well as highly detailed accounts of the buildings, social conditions and customs of the time, based on a wide range of classical and medieval historical literature, public and civic records, and Stow's own intimate knowledge of the city where he spent his life. "The reader of A Survey travels with Stow through each of the city's wards and the adjoining city of Westminster, learns about the wall, bridges, gates, and parish churches . . . [Stow] also records the negative aspects of urban growth, in the shape of unsightly sprawl, filth, the destruction of ancient monuments, and above all poverty. His book approaches the thoroughness of an encyclopaedia . . . It is noteworthy that while Camden's Britannia was written in Latin for the educated élite, Stow's Survey was composed in the language of his fellow countrymen." This edition, of 1720, greatly expanded with interpolated amendments by John Strype, is considered the best and most desirable. "Throughout his life at Low Leyton, Strype crossed the River Lea into London each week to meet and converse with his antiquarian friends and to call on his contacts in the book trade. . . . The Survey had been repeatedly revised and enlarged in order to keep up with the changing aspect of the post-fire city, now much expanded and altered in its religion and other ways. . . . Although Strype had arranged most of the work by 1707, and the engravings had been prepared, it was set aside after the publication of Edward Hatton's New View of London in 1708, which seemed to cover much the same ground and was considerably smaller and cheaper. . . . Finally, once the defects of Hatton's book were acknowledged another agreement in November 1716 led to the Survey's publication at the end of 1720. . . . The print run was probably more than 500 copies . . . To quote Merritt, ‘By this stage the Survey has a multiple personality, switching with little warning from nostalgic Elizabethan antiquary [Stow] . . . to diligent post-Restoration recorder of events [Strype] and back again’ (Merritt, 87)."

As an entirely engraved, chock-a-block with information, Britannia depicta or Ogilby improv’d was being constantly corrected and updated.

Tooley III, p. 345-47. Lister, p. 207. (ESTC does not record this imprint.) First edition, first or second issue, of this fully and finely engraved road atlas of England and Wales, a smaller-format, popular version (reduced to half the original scale) of Ogilby's famous seventeenth-century road atlases of England, originally published in two versions, both 1675, in folio editions. Ogilby's survey, undertaken to prepare the atlases, was perhaps the most accurate to date; he used the new distance of 1760 yards to a mile instead of the old standard of 2428 yards and calculated measurements methodically by foot. Because of public demand for these accurate strip road maps in a format conducive to travel, several smaller versions were published, with the present edition being one of the most successful. Bowen was official map engraver to both George II and Louis XV of France, producing some of the finest and most intricately engraved English county maps of his time. N. B.

        BAICHIKU RANGIKU [SHIFU]

      1720. Good. [HASSHU GAFU]. BAICHIKU RANGIKU [SHIFU]. 28.1 x 19.4 cm. One volume [THE ALBUM OF PLUM, BAMBOO, RAN AND CHRYSANTHEMUM] only of eight volumes originally published in Ming-era China. The Ming edition is unobtainable and the first Japanese edition of 1672 virtually so. This is almost certainly one of the volumes of the 1710 Kyoto edition, printed by Nakagawa Mohei. HASSHU GAFU literally translates as A COLLECTION OF EIGHT ILLUSTRATED SKETCH BOOKS. The books in the collection had no intrinsic connection with each other, save that they were heavily illustrated in woodcut. Some, like this one, are done on a botanical theme, others are illustrated poetry collections. In any event, the HASSHU GAFU had a great deal of influence on the Chinese style painters of the early Edo period once it was published there, an influence that only started to fade upon the import of the color printed MUSTARD SEED GARDEN and TEN BAMBOO HALL. This copy has the original dark blue green covers, printed on a thin hard toshi paper, string-bound fukuro-toji Japanese-style with the original printed paper title label. Overall good condition, good impressions.
