Homer (trans. Alexander Pope)
London: Bernard Lintot Vols 1 and 6 of the Second 12mo (6.25in x 4in) Edition of this timeless masterpiece, published in 1720 and 1721 (Second Edition stated on title page). According to Griffith's Alexander Pope: A Bibliography, the 12mo editions were published after Pope's Iliad was 'printed in Holland and clandestinely imported' in duodecimo format (rather than the original folio) which 'forced Lintot to publish a duodecimo' (91). This is the Second Duodecimo Edition. Vol 6 in original binding, w/repaired hinges; Vol 1 rebacked, using original boards (also has a modern bookplate on the fpastedown). The first original leaf is the King's license to Bernard Lintot for exclusive publication, signed James Stanhope, followed by the frontis portrait of Pope by Vertue. The half-title page follows, backed by a second frontis of a bust of Homer (unidentified artist). The original title page is torn across the top and a 1755 owner's name is lost. Then follows the Preface, an essay on Homer by Pope, and the first four books of the Iliad. Each book has a frontis; in this volume the artist is unidentified. In addition to the frontis for Book 3, there are 2 folding plates: one has maps of 'Graecia Homerica' and 'Phrygia' and the other apparently depicts coins and monuments dedicated to Homer; they are separated by a geographical table of places mentioned. Vol 6 consists of Books 22-24, followed by several indices (it is the final volume). It is greatly enhanced by the 3 frontispieces of Elisha Kirkall, which are of masterpiece quality. Note: the famous folding plate of the Shield of Ac … [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.

FER, Nicholas de (1646-1720)
Paris: De Fer dans l'Isle du Palais à la Sphere Royale, 1720. Copper- engraved map, with original outline colour, in excellent condition. 19 3/4 x 28 3/8 inches. One of the largest and most important depictions of California as an Island. This is one of the finest early maps of California and the Southwest. Wheat called it an "important and carefully drawn map"; and Tooley described it as a "fine rare map ... a reissue of de Fer's map of 1705 but on a larger scale and with some notable additions." The map was based on information gathered by Father Eusibio Kino before 1695. Kino, Jesuit missionary and traveler, visited Baja California in 1685. He was among the Seris and Pimas in 1690, after which he transferred to northern Sonora, where he remained until his death in 1711. His missionary work in Sonora included expeditions north and west to Arizona. In 1696, he sent to Rome a compilation of his cartographical work. It was this manuscript, or another similar map now lost, on which Nicholas de Fer based his printed map. De Fer's map is probably the best synthesis of knowledge for the region on the eve of Kino's subsequent 1701 discovery that California was attached to the continental landmass. De Fer still shows California as an island, probably the last great map to do so, and the Gila flows directly into the sea rather than correctly into the Colorado River. The Gila is thick with placenames, and New Mexico is well portrayed. Below the title is a lengthy engraved text that gives the early history of California up to 1695. Over three hundred and fifty towns a … [Click Below for Full Description]

The South Sea Company, launched in 1711, partly as a Tory rival to the Whiggish bank and East India Company, but with the aim of transforming the unfunded national debt into its stock, was at the center of "the most notorious episode in the history of eighteenth-century financial speculation.

Title-pages printed in red and black.Title pages some browned and stained along the margins, inner margin stregnthened. Some toning to the leaves but not badly foxed. Bound in recent quarter calf with cloth boards and new endpapers. The noted map (10 x 14 in.) has a short tear, but is an excellent example showing New England from Long Island north. Lowndes p. 1657; Howes N-26. Sabin 52140; Pilling Proof Sheets 2726. Larned 992. European Americana 720/178. Howes notes that this is based chiefly on Mather's Marginalia and Oldmixon's British Empire in America. DNB calls Neal (1678-1743) the Historian of the Puritans This work was so well received in the colonies, that Neal was awarded an honorary degree from Harvard University in 1721. Learned notes: "[Neal's] work was superior to anything of the kind that preceded it. His attitude is that of one who wishes to remain impartial. He deals chiefly with political, religious, and military questions, but has an interesting chapter, largely condensed from Josselyn, describing the state of New England; and he has paid some attention to legislative history. His style is often sprightly and he displays a sense of humor. For some aspects of the revolution of 1688- 1689 his work is still useful.

John Strype (1643–1737), historian and biographer, was approached by the publishers Richard Chiswell and Thomas Horne to provide yet another revised version of John Stow's much admired Survey of London (1598). An agreement was drawn up whereby Strype would receive 43 guineas, his expenses, and six bound copies of the finished work. 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. Strype immediately set about transcribing documents from the London archives and in 1703 Awnsham Churchill joined the agreement as senior partn … [Click Below for Full Description]

Early English Map of Switzerland A contemporary of Herman Moll, John Senex was one of the most successful mapmakers during the golden age of English cartography. He issued a series of atlases with John Maxwell and C. Price, and went on to reissue Ogilby's road atlas. He was appointed Geographer to Queen Anne, and in 1728 was elected to the Royal Society. His beautiful maps are famed for their meticulous detail and ornate cartouches, and they remain some of the best examples of eighteenth century English mapmaking. In this handsome map of Switzerland, the original 13 Cantons are listed with their dates of incorporation, and around the border of the map are the crests of each canton, as well as those of their allies.

M. Fabii Quinctiliani; Burmannum, Petrum (editor)
Lugduni Batavorum: Joannem de Vivie, 1720. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. Quintiliani (Quinctilianus) was a well-known Roman philosopher and orator. He wrote and published his one surviving work, Institutione Oratoria, in twelve books, prior to 96 CE.It describes the life and training of an orator from birth until maturity.Book 1 covers the importance of language as a foundation in early education, including the influence of nurses, parents, and slaves, as well as the superiority of schools over home education. Book 2 discusses the entrance of a boy into rhetoric school, the qualities of a good instructor, and guidelines for students working together. Books 3-7 discuss technicalities of oration in court speeches. Books 8-11 illuminate Quintilian's views on oratory style and delivery. Perhaps most interesting is Book 10, where Quintilian gives his uncensored views of famous Greek and Latin writers. Book 12 sums up the discussion of an ideal orator by elucidating the personal and moral characteristics which make a vir bonus dicendi peritus, 'a good man who knows how to speak' (Quintilian quoting Cato the Elder). Quintilian insisted on eloquence as a moral force, but was most concerned with good content to help shape sensible men.The twelve books are bound here as one volume. Bound in contemporary vellum boards with neatly inked black title to spine. Embossed floral image and rules to both boards. Raised bands to spine. Two inch long split to top of front joint. Soiling to boards and wear to corners, as is common with a book of this age. The front hinge is starting with a sp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Välbevarat samtida pergamentband, med beigefärgat titelfält, stänksnitt. Fint exemplar ur Warmholtz bibliotek, med dennes anteckningar på försättsbladet, och Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Warmholtz 1421. Brunet III, 657. Carlander II, 464ff & III, 564ff. Första upplagan av denna samling av essäer om fornnordisk/ keltisk religion och kult, bl.a. om Stonehenge och andra monument, och druider. Warmholtz anser att den upptar mycket som angår de nordiska antikviteterna, även om författaren är kritisk mot svenska historiker och i synnerhet gentemot Rudbeck. Den innehåller tidiga illustrationer av Stonehenge, och den är även känd för kapitlet om Maran och mardrömmar. J. G. Keysler (1693-1743) var tysk antikvarie, som annars idag kanske är mest känd för sin reseskildring i Centraleuropa. C. G. Warmholtz väldiga historiska bibliotek på Christineholm utanför Nyköping, vilket låg till grund för hans stora bibliografi, såldes 1780 till Gjörwell och Uppfostringssällskapet. Dennes kroniskt dåliga ekonomi tvingade honom dock att i olika omgångar sälja vidare bitar av biblioteket, som således skingrades. Många titlar letade sig så småningom fram till Ericsberg, ofta via d'Albedyhll.
