        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. Le Nepvou de Carfort, "Histoire de Du Gay Trouin le corsair", Paris, Plon, 1922 & "Du Guay Trouin, sa maison natale, Sa sepulture, Les manuscrits de ses memoires", St. Brieuc, Paris, 1912.

      London: printed for A. Churchill, J. Knapton, R. Knaplock, J. Walthoe, E. Horne, B. Tooke, D. Midwinter, B. Cowse, R. Robinson, and T. Ward, 1720. First Edition thus. Full Calf. Fine.

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. Of the examples dated 1720, Hobson identifies eight variants laid out in six distinct ‘editions.'

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.

      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.

All plates engraved by Adolf van der Laan after drawings by Sieuwert van der Meulen. Contemporary wrappers.

      Atlas van Stolk 3019; E. Ingals, Whaling prints in the F.B. Lothrop collection 15-30; Muller, Historieplaten supplement 3013 C (no copy seen). Extremely rare first edition of two print series with engraved general title: Groote vissery . One series presents the herring fishery and trade, and the other is a classic set of 16 whaling prints by Adolf van der Laan. "The exceptional comprehensiveness, historical accuracy, maritime detail, and artistry are rare in the history of the pictorial documentation of the industry..." (Ingals, p. 9). These 16 scenes show the different stages of whale fishery: the search for a whale, the attempt to catch it, butchering it, hunting polar bears, ships getting caught in ice, etc. "The set's popularity must have been somewhat exceptional, for it appears in innumerable variations, copies, and extractions" (Ingals, p. 9). It is believed that Sieuwert van der Meulen made the original drawings for the set around 1720, just after the Dutch entered Davis Strait, opening vast new whaling grounds and bringing new vitality, prosperity and interest to the industry. The first series (Herring fishery) with text in Dutch and English. The second series (Whaling) with text in Dutch, English and German.With a couple minor smudges in the margins, otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed. Wrappers rubbed along the extremities.

First edition - 1720 1st ed Robinson Crusoe Daniel Defoe Voyages Illustrated Shipwreck 2v French “It is never too late to be wise.” Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe “One of the most beautiful travel books in figures of the eighteenth century" (Gumuchian) Called the original adventure novel, Robinson Crusoe was originally published in 1719 and depicts the life of a castaway who learns to survive on an island for decades. However, while it saw substantial success with the masses, there were still those that were not impressed. Charles Dickens said, “.Robinson Crusoe should be the only instance of a universally popular book that could make no one laugh and could make no one cry.” This first edition was edited and translated into French by Themiseuil de Saint-Hyacinthe et J. van Effen. Complete in two volumes, a third (or supplemental) volume was written a year later. This first edition is unique in that it was the first edition printed with more than a frontispiece and map.

        Tractatus de febrium natura & differentiis 82pp manuscript With Brevis chirurgiae synopsis manuscript 81pp

      1720. Astruc, Jean (1684-1766). Tractatus de febrium natura & differentiis. Authore D. D. J. Astruc in alma Monspelliensiu[m] medicinae facultate professore regio dignissimo. Manuscript document. 4to. 76pp. N.p., 1720. Together with another medical ms. in the same hand (Brevis chirurgiae exegesis. Seu synopsis, per summaria capita . . .), 81pp. The two mss. contained in a single volume, 222 x 167 mm. Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards, slightly rubbed. Portion of ms. title cut away, otherwise fine.A transcription of Astruc's lectures on fevers delivered at Montpellier, where Astruc served as professor of medicine from 1716 to 1728. Astruc, who later joined the Faculty of Medicine in Paris, was a highly skilled and influential teacher. During the 18th century it was common practice for medical lectures such as these to be transcribed and for a small number of manuscript copies to be sold to students who might not have been able to attend. Astruc was: "extremely methodical and clear in his instruction. In a series of courses lasting six years he [covered all phases of medicine: anatomy, physiology, psychology, gerontology, pathology, therapy, venereology, gynecology, neurology and pediatrics. Even in American libraries there are manuscript copies of these carefully prepared and highly appreciated courses; during Astruc's lifetime some of them were used for editions printed without his knowledge in England, Switzerland and Holland" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). An unauthorized edition of Astruc's lectures on fevers was published in England in 1749 under the title Academical Lectures on Fevers; it is likely that the present lectures are incorporated in this work. We have not found any French or Latin editions of this title in the library databases, and it is quite possible that this work remains unpublished in this form. Astruc was the author of several important medical works, most of which were first published in Latin. The best known of these is his De morbis veneris (1736 and later eds.), the first great work on venereal disease (see Garrison-Morton 5195). The surgical manuscript following Astruc's work is a brief exegesis of surgical operations arranged by chapter headings. Its authorship is unknown.

        Britannia Depicta; or, Ogilby Improv'd; being a Correct Coppy of Mr. Ogilby's Actual Survey of all ye Direct & Principal Cross Roads in England and Wales

      London: Tho. Bowles, 1720 - Octavo (204 × 130 mm). Recent panelled calf to style, red morocco label, foliate roll in blind to the bands. Light browning throughout, some foxing, largely marginal, last map mounted on a stub, and with minor loss at the inner margin, overall very good. Engraved title page, 4-page table, 273 engraved maps. First edition, first issue of this of this highly popular reduced version of John Ogilby's 1675 road atlas; Bowen's address given as "next ye King of Spain", plate 128 misnumbered 121, and plates 74 and 75 transposed. Bowles decided to go one better than Thomas Gardner and John Senex, who were planning reduced size re-issues of Ogilby, by augmenting the work with 54 county maps and "a multitude of historical, topographical and statistical information" (Hodson) by the antiquarian John Owen, the whole engraved onto 273 strip-maps by Emanuel Bowen. Bowles puffed the work extravagantly claiming, that "One leaf of this, contains more Observations than any whole book of this Nature yet publish'd", and seems to have stirred up "a great demand as there were four editions issued from 1720 to 1724" (Chubb). How practical this was as a road-book is questionable, the lay-out is rather cluttered with three or four road strips per page, together with the county maps, armorials, and minisculely engraved cursive text, however, it is certainly lively, and undoubtedly would have possessed considerable novelty on publication. Ogilby's survey itself was the first of the roads of England and Wales, "and [he] is probably best known on this account . Sir H.G. Fordham . says [the survey] 'is of particular and historical importance, as it displaced the old British mile of 2,428 yards, and substituted it for the statute mile of 1,760 yards, thus effecting a revolution in customary measurements'" (Chubb, p. 444). Chubb pp. 117–23; Hodson 149. [Attributes: First Edition]
