OGILBY, John (1600-1676) [BOWEN, Emanuel]
Printed and Sold by Tho Bowles, London 1720 - 4to; [6], 273, [1]pp. Bound in contemporary full English paneled calf, sympathetically rebacked, the spine with five raised bands ruled in gilt and a new red morocco lettering piece gilt; all edges speckled red. First edition, first issue, of this fully and finely engraved road atlas of England and Wales, with 273 maps patterned after the 17th-century versions of John Ogilby. Scarce first issue, with "next ye King of Spain in S: Katherines" in the imprint statement (later issues read "near ye Stairs in St. Katherine’s"). First Edition points as follows: p. 8, Sussex 'rapes' [administrative boundaries] not numbered; p.128 misnumbered '121' (a later owner has added lines to the numeral '1' making it look like an '8'; p.141 showing a coat of arms in the text at bottom right showing three trefoils in a bend or diagonal bar. Shirley I, 278-80. Hodson 149. Tooley, 83. Lister, 62. A smaller, popular version of John Ogilby's famous road atlases of England, originally published in 1675 in a folio edition entitled: Britannia: or an Illustration of the Kingdom of England and Dominion of Wales. Ogilby's survey 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. Due to 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. Emanuel Bowen was official map engraver to both George II and Lo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio. 11-1/2" x 7-3/4" Pope, one of the leading literary figures of early 18th C England, enjoyed social success as well, and could count among his friends such great literary figures as Swift, Gay, and Congreve and 'saw much aristocratic society.' Of his character, the D.N.B. comments 'there is, in fact, no more difficult subject for biography, especially in a compressed form.... The truest statement seems to be that he was at bottom, as he represents himself in the epistle to Arbuthnot, a man of really fine nature, affectionate, generous, and independent; unfortunately, the better nature was perverted by the morbid vanity and excessive irritability which led him into his multitudinous subterfuges.' It has been commented that Pope could ‘hardly drink tea without a stratagem.’ His devotion to literature was unremitting, 'he might have rivalled Chaucer in one century, and Wordsworth in another. As it was, his poetry is the essence of the first half of the eighteenth century. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Johann Michael Seligmann
- A very detailed hand colored ornithological engraving by Johann Michael Seligmann (1720-1762) from his book "Sammlung Verschiedener Auslandischer und Selener Vogel" which was printed in Nuremberg in1749-76. These engravings were after George Edwards and Mark Catesby's earlier prints. Overall this print measures 15 ½” x 10”. Mark Catesby (1682-1749) was born and educated in England, and was originally sent to Carolina by the Royal Society in 1722 as a botanist. From there he traveled to Florida and the Bahamas, returning to England in 1726 with a vast store of information on the wildlife he had observed. By the spring of 1729, he had completed the first part of The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands (1734-1746), but it was not until 1746 that the work was finally finished. It became the earliest colored book on American birds. George Edwards (1694-1773) was a contemporary of Mark Catesby. He was an ornithologist and bird illustrator who was heavily influenced by Catesby. Edwards is best known as the author of A Natural History, composed of two books: A Natural History of Uncommon Birds (1743-51) and Gleanings of Natural History (1758-1764). The plates that were contained within these works were valued for their landscape backgrounds, which were unusual at the time. To satisfy the tremendous demand for both these landmark works, Johann Michael Seligmann, a German publisher, issued a nine-volume compilation of the works of Mark Catesby and George Edwards.

Anonymous:
Amsterdam, 1720. Copper engraving, 30 x 23.5 cms, black and white, elaborate engraved border, Dutch text beneath; generous margins, blank verso. A Dutch ‘fool's cap' map, satirising the bursting of the financial bubbles of 1720. Cartographic features are given punning names such as the River Bubble, the Island of Despair and the town of ‘Madmandam', but the real Rivers Thames, Seine and Meuse are also marked, drawing attention to the scenes of the greatest folly. In Britain, the South Sea Company folded, wiping out inumberable fortunes after a period of intesnse speculation. In France, colourful Scottish financier John Law won the confidence of the Duke of Orleans (then Regent of France), and was permitted to set up the Mississippi Company, which controlled all trade with France's vast and largely unexplored American possessions - believed to be rich in gold and silver. He established the Royal Bank and issued paper money based on the supposed value of shares in the company. Eventually he was minting French coinage, collecting taxes and largely controlling the French economy. The value of the shares soared, the French economy boomed, more paper notes were issued and after a period of wild speculation confidence collapsed, ruining investors throughout Europe. The imaginary ‘mad-head' island depicted by the engraver in a sea of shares and inhabited by shareholders (discovered by Mr Law-rens) has an ass's ears and wears a fool's cap. The cartouche shows angry investors storming the offices of John Law's company, and an equally ludicrous land-ship sailing towards a lunatic asy … [Click Below for Full Description]

PHILLIPS, John
JT - Thomas Jauncey, London, 1720. An early edition of this celebrated poem about Cider and how to grow apple trees. John Phillips, from Hereford, (obit 1709) published the poem to great acclaim in 1708. Johnson, in his "Lives of the Poets", remarks that: "his greatest work (was) the poem upon Cider, in two books; as an imitation of Virgil's Georgick, which needed not shun the presence of the original.", was first published in 1708. Johnson added that " the poem on Cider is grounded in truth; the precepts which it contains are exact and just, and that it is therefore at once a book of entertainment and of science". A small, neat volume, 72pp, slightly browned in places, with a very good quarter leather and marbled cloth binding, spine with PHILLIP'S CYDER in gilt letters, two books bound in 1, frontispiece of apple trees and a cornucopia between two classical female figures, printer's advertisement sheet inside back cover. 6" by 4", a very attractive and interesting volume.

Durret, Sieur de
A famous ?and possibly fictitious- voyage to Lima. 1720. Paris. In 12mo (165 mm x 93 mm). xxxv + 282 + 244 + 1 ff. + 5 plates and folding plan. Handsome copy in contemporary calf, spine with raised bands and red lettering piece, gently rubbed. Title and a few pages a little foxed, else fine. First edition. An intriguing book, it is thought that the author never really visited Lima nor Brazil; nevertheless, the chapter that describes Saint Catherine and Brazil is taken from a real source ?Chapter 17 of the first part and chapter 19 contain descriptions of Santa Catharina and Brazil in general. The letter is signed 'Durret' but the account is by Bachelier, a surgeon. Father Labat believes that this was an imaginary voyage" (Borba de Moraes). Describes the customs, manners and geography of Peru, Argentina, Paraguay and Chile in South America and a few other countries (Panama, Martinique, amongst others) in the Caribbean; it is embellished with five folding plates and a folding plan of Lima. Sabin, 21437. Borba de Moraes, 281.

Page de titre du tome I en rouge et noir. Toutes les premières éditions de cet ouvrage furent édités chez Marteau (Louis Elsevier) ; on ne connait pas la véritable adresse de celle-ci. Cette édition, après consultation des exemplaires recensés dans les bibliothèques ne contient pas toujours les figures, et quand elle les contient (l'exemplaire de la British Library), on n'en dénombre que 13, sans les deux figures du prêtre clément, et celle intégrée dans Les Sorcelleries de Henry de Valois. Par ailleurs, l'avis au relieur ne présente que 12 portraits. Toutes ces figures sont contenues dans le tome I, le tome II étant occupé par les remarques de Duchat et Denys Godefroy et de nombreux textes qui n'apparaissaient pas dans les précédentes éditions. Reliure en pleine basane blonde marbrée d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin beige. Mors supérieur du tome I fendu en tête. Mors supérieur du tome II fendu en tête et queue. Mors inférieur du tome II fendu. Réunion de textes violemment satiriques et critiques sur Henry III, la reine mère, la reine Margot et la cour ; l'ensemble ne constituait au départ de l'entreprise en 1621 que quelques textes glanés dans les carnets de Pierre de l'Estoile par Louis Servin.
