      various, 1721 - 1753. various. "Morris (Maurice) Griffith (1686 - 1766). Collection of 12 documents signed by or related to Griffith. In fair to good condition with weakness at the folds, some holes and paper loss including words, partial splits, wear, toning and foxing, some with chipped edges and smoothed folds.BackgroundIn The Tales of the Walrus (Xlibris, 2013), Richard Sharkey writes that ""George Washington … knew a man of Welsh background named Morris (also sometimes known as Maurice) Griffith who served as an Indian scout at sometime during the French and Indian War.""Griffith was an experienced frontiersmen in the New River and Holston River area of Augusta County in Virginia. A prominent figure among the settlers of the Welsh Tract in Pennsylvania, on August 12, 1755, Morris Griffith was captured in a raid on Vause’s fort and escaped.On July 10, 1758, in a letter, Christopher Gist informed Major George Washington that Morris Griffith had safely returned after being confronted by a ""Party of Indians & French … This Seems to be the foundation of the News we had Sometime past of a Number of white Men and Indians Makeing for Bedford County. I thought proper to give you this …"" . In 1750, the Ohio Company had hired Gist to survey along the Ohio River from what is now Pittsburgh to Louisville. Travelling with Washington to the Ohio Country in 1754, Gist served as scout, messenger, and Indian agent.""Gist continued, ""There were many such tales of a so-called Welsh tribe; one of interest was a Maurice Griffith who was taken prisoner by the Shawnee Indians in 1764. The Indians eventually befriended him and took him on a hunting expedition to seek the source of the Missouri. High in the mountains they came across 'three white men in Indian dress' with whom they travelled for several days until they arrived at a village where there were others of the same tribe, all having the same European complexion. A council of this white Indian tribe decided to put the strangers to death and Griffith decided it was time to speak. He addressed them in the Welsh language explaining that they had no hostile intentions but merely sought the source of the Missouri and that they would return to their own lands satisfied with their discoveries. The Chief of the Tribe greeted them in Welsh and they were thereafter treated as guests, staying with the nation some eight months.

      1721 - addressed to George Montagu, Earl of Halifax (d. 1739), Auditor of the Receipt of the Exchequer, ordering a large payment under 5 George I c. 19 (1719), in respect of people who had exchanged anticipated lottery proceeds for South Sea stock, 2 sides 4¼" x 6½" remargined to 6¼" x 7½", 28th March lacks bottom portion of first side, also line ends (easily supplied from title of the Act, see transcription), text on second side appears complete apart from addressee's style, tears in line 5 without loss To fund the war with France in Queen Anne's reign, the National Debt was increased by voluntary loans to the Exchequer and lottery subscriptions. Even blank lottery tickets paid a small amount of interest for a term of 32 years. The interest or annuities on these and previous loans was supposed to be secured by introducing more and more taxes, but Exchequer payments were increasingly in arrears. In 1710 the South Sea Company was set up to combine the various arrangements, by inviting creditors to exchange Exchequer debt for South Sea Stock, and till the Bubble burst in 1720, more and more people did so. The £87,342 4s 5d payable by this document was due annually to those who had bought lottery tickets under 8 Anne c. 4, 1709, and who had exchanged under 5 George I c. 19 in 1719. See the marginal note to s. 6 in Pickering's Statutes at Large, 1765, Vol. 14, p. 71. In 1721, although the directors were under investigation, there was a general feeling that Sunderland was responsible for the South Sea fiasco, and he was forced to resign within days of signing this document.

        The orthodox communicant

      engraven and sold by J. Sturt in Golden Lion Court in Aldersgate Street : 1721 : London : 8vo, pp. iv, [6], v-ix, [1], 82. According to ESTC this is the most common binding order. : This was Sturt's second engraved liturgical book following his better known Book of Common Prayer of 1717. The text is annonymous but generally attributed to Laurence Howell; however it is Sturt who signs the dedication to Lady Henrietta Cavendish. Sturt was apprenticed at the age of 17 to Robert White and he engraved a number of portrait frontispieces in the manner of his master. He engraved writing books for John Ayres, Thomas Watson, John Seddon and Eleazar Wiggan in the 1680's and 90's. Perhaps the prayer book too was intended as a copy-book and the subscribers include 3 writing masters, Robert More, Elias Pen and Ralph Snow.Interestingly, other graphic artists and members of the printing trades are prominent in the subscribers list, including the letter founder Robert Andrews; the engravers Edward Hill, Andrew Motte and John Senex; the drawing masters Bernard Lens senior; the limners Bernard and Edward Lens; and the printers Benjamin Mott and Richard Nutt, and James Roberts. Among prominent book collectors we find Sir Hans Sloane and Lord Harley, as well as a separate subscription for Lady Harley. And members of Sturt's family: Nathaniel, Jacob, Anne and Eliza. Like the prayer book, each leaf, with the exception of the final leaf of subscribers, is made up of two leaves pasted back to back. Each page is printed from two separate plates, a border, which repeats, and an inner plate with an illustration at the top and the text below.

        A New Map of Asia From the latest Observations. Most Humbly Inscrib'd to the Right Hon.ble George Earl of Warrington.

      London: John Senex, 1721. Hand-coloured engraved map measuring 540 x 625 mm. (sheet size), with ornamental title caption to the top left corner; slight aging, very good condition, mounted. Finely engraved map of greater Asia (including Arabia, India and a small portion of northernmost Australia) by John Senex (1678-1740), geographer to Queen Anne and fellow of the Royal Society. As with many maps of the early eighteenth-century the coastline of northern Australia is included.The map was printed for the New General Atlas of 1721, drawing upon information from a wide variety of sources including leading continental cartographers of the era: 'The atlas was claimed to be based on the best authors, particularly Cluverius, Brietius, Cellarius, Blaeu, Baudrand, Hoffman, the two Sansons, Luyts, and other geographers' (Shirley p.942). Senex was widely respected as a pre-eminent scientific publisher of his generation. He also sold globes and instruments and was sometimes employed as a surveyor. Shirley notes that maps in the New General Atlas of 1721 marked as revised by Senex are most probably derived from plates previously owned or published by the prolific London publisher and map-seller Christopher Browne (fl. 1688-1712).This marvellous map features a most attractive ornamental title to one corner featuring a reclining Ottoman gentleman with a long pipe, a Mongol swordsman and a monkey brandishing a goblet. Curiously, the route of Evert Ysbrandszoon Ides, an envoy of Tsar Peter the Great who travelled to China in 1692 is here clearly engraved.

        La Monarchie des Solipses, traduite de l'Original Latin de Melchior Inchofer Jesuite. Avec des Remarques.

      Ansterdam: n.p. 1721. Duodecimo, woodcut device on title; in contemporary mottled calf gilt. First French edition of this satirical fantasy on the Jesuits, exaggerating their society as a separate world with a 'nouvelle forme de Gouvernement inconnue dans nôtre Hémisphere'.Scotti (1602-1669), an Italian from an influential patrician family and a Jesuit himself, had a turbulent career marred by a series of public quarrels with both the Order and the various universities at which he was professor. His Monarchie des Solipses (first published in Venice in 1645) takes the form of an 'ingenious satire against the Jesuits achieved by describing their society as the monarchy of Solipsia' (Gibson). Scotti's scathing account of a narcissistic society separated from the world struck a chord: indeed, his apparent invention of the word 'solipsist' to describe the Jesuits was popularly used as a derogatory term for some time after publication.The thoroughness of the work and the consistency of the allegory were widely praised, although its obscurity was a problem: 'Peu de lecteurs sont en état d'entendre le style obscur, plein d'allusions et de réticences, de cet ouvrage, qui, à part endroits curieux, n'est qu'une satire dictée par le dépit' (NBG). No doubt this accounts for the fact that this French translation is furnished with extensive notes clarifying and explaining the allusions. A very good copy.

        Avis de précaution contre la maladie contagieuse de Marseille, qui contient une idée complette de la peste, & de ses accidens. Avec des moyens préservatifs, & curatifs ; de formules choisies, & un catalogue général de remèdes, tant simples, que composez.

      Lyon, Frères Bruyset, 1721 - Lyon, Frères Bruyset, 1721 ; 1 vol. in-12 (16.5 x 9.5 cm), (24), 203, (5) pp., plein veau de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, armes dorées poussées au centre des plats, filet doré dencadrement sur les plats, petites traces de frottement, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches jaspées, ex-libris gravé (Dr. François Jung), très bon état. Édition originale très rare, a fotiori dans cette condition. Cet ouvrage, dédicacé "à Son altesse Royale Léopold Ier, Duc de Lorraine et de Bar" est écrit de façon claire, fait très inhabituel pour l'époque. Pestalozzi est aussi plus rationnel que ses prédécesseurs et la plupart de ses contemporains. Il commence par indiquer que "c'est une erreur populaire, & un abus grossier de croire qu'il y ait des secrets universels contre cette maladie". Il prône l'observation et le raisonnement. Pestalozzi a le mérite d'indiquer que les "variations de la maladie" correspondent à des formes cliniques relevant "d'une même cause, c'est-à-dire d'un poison étranger". Comme la plupart des médecins de cette époque, il pense que la peste est due à des "corpuscules" transportés par l'air. Selon lui, ces corpuscules volatils sortent du corps des pestiférés. Pestalozzi, en opposition avec Chicoyneau, se déclare "contagioniste". Il rapporte l'histoire de la peste de Marseille et étudie les moyens de communication. Il a le mérite d'analyser la théorie des insectes énoncée par Kircher et qui fit l'objet de violentes critiques au XVIIIe siècle. Pestalozzi émet cependant deux objections à cette théorie, la fécondité et la durée de vie des insectes lui paraissant incompatibles avec le mode de propagation de la peste. La symptomatologie est bien exposée. Pestalozzi préconise les antidotes traditionnels (thériaque, etc.), l'antimoine, l'eau de vie, etc. Il indique de nombreuses formules de remèdes préservatifs et curatifs. Jérôme Jean Pestalozzi (1674-1742), d'origine vénitienne, fut reçu docteur en médecine à Valence et devint agrégé au Collège de médecine de Lyon, médecin de l'Hôtel-Dieu. Références : Coste J : Représentations et comportements en temps d'épidémie dans la littérature imprimée de peste (1490-1725), pp. 152, 179, 182-184, 226, 232, 254, 261,291, 320, 325, 336, 340, 344, 812 ; Takeda JT : Between Crown and Commerce: Marseille and the Early Modern Mediterranean, pp. 106, 108-109, 112-114 :" Early eighteenth-century epidemiologists introduced new interpretations that tended to shrink plagues dimensions. While preserving Hippocratic theories of miasmas, physicians assumed a rationalist tone that reduced the disease to its 'simplest forms'. They configured plague, disharmony, and irrationality against experimental knowledge and rationality. The medical views of two renowned physicians who practiced and wrote during the plague of 1720, Jérôme-Jean Pestalozzi and François Chicoyneau, point this transition. Pestalozzi insisted that plague was a simple disease. It destroyed many things, but it did so in the same way. Pestalozzi advocated a simplified method of confronting the plague: observation of the disease's effects. Pestalozzi's scientific method was fraught with tensions. Though he had inherited the Hippocratic vocabulary, his investigative process leading from particular effects to general ideas made him a budding empiricist. While he subscribed to ideas about plague that linked physical derangement with political and social disorder, he attempted to strip it of metaphors and reduce it to biological dimensions to make it manageable and curable. ; Panzac D : Quarantaines et Lazarets, pp. 13-16, 104. © S.A.S.
