Allen, Jeremiah, treasurer and receiver general for Massachusetts
Boston 1721 - One page, in ink. 1 vols. 31 x 20 cm. "Jeremiah Allen of full adge testifieth that on Saturday last being the 1st of April towards the evening he the deponent met with Capt. Christopher Taylor in Schoolstreet, who spoke words very disagreeable to me the deponent, and seemed (to me the deponent) delirious ?"Although we do not know the reason for the deposition, "sworne in court", it is clear that Capt. Taylor, a merchant seaman, was something of a pest and a troublemaker, frequently involved in controversy, as well as a contributor to the COURANT: "Captain Christopher Taylor (ca. 1677-1734) was a hypocrite. He contributed seven pieces to the annotated COURANT ? [he] lived with and had a child by his maid Anne Bell, but often denounced immorality and licentiousness in the COURANT. On one occasion he insulted Governor Shute in a 'rude and insolent manner'?" (Lemay, THE LIFE OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, pp. 106-107). Taylor's father, like Jeremiah Allen, was Treasurer of the Province.

NEWTON, Isaac.
London: Printed for William and John Innys,, 1721. The Third Edition, Corrected. Octavo (195 x 122 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, red morocco label to spine, boards tooled in blind with floriate motifs and lozenge pattern to central panels, edges sprinkled red. With the final leaf of advertisements. 12 engraved folding plates. Bookplate of High Legh Library to front pastedown. Joints and spine ends skilfully repaired, a few marks to boards, occasional foxing to contents, overall a bright, clean copy. Third edition of Newton's major work on his corpuscular or emission theory of light, "a work of great authority" (PMM) both on its first publication in 1704 and in the present day. "The Opticks of 1704–6, generalizing the message of the Principia, issued a manifesto of his new programme. The mechanical philosophy with its imagined mechanisms of imagined particles was out. Forces mathematically defined, explaining observed motions in a quantitatively precise manner, formed the centrepiece of Newtonian science. Modern science has shaped itself accordingly. The same Opticks also contained at the end the first full papers in mathematics that Newton made public" (ODNB). As Babson notes, this is a reprint of the second edition (1717-18) with a few corrections and one additional passage referring to Noah and his sons.

Third edition (originally published 1714). In April 1713, a series of articles in The Guardian launched a debate concerning the nature of pastoral poetry, by praising the verse of Ambrose Philips at the expense of Alexander Pope, who had claimed the mantle of first pastoral writer of his age and the true English Theocritus. Gay's contribution to this literary skirmish, intended to ridicule Philips, was this mock pastoral, a series of six poems modeled on Virgil's Eclogues, which in turn had been influenced by the idylls of Theocritus. The poems are composed in a pseudo-archaic dialect "explained"` in a glossary at the foot of each page. "These glosses are masterpieces of false learning . . . all deliberately chosen to draw attention to the false simplicity of Philips's verses. Yet amid all this Gay inserts some genuinely lyrical moments, before bathetically undermining them, reminding us of the rhythmic beauty of the count … [Click Below for Full Description]

[KERSTEMAN, Franciscus Lievens].
Buisman 1029; STCN (2 copies); Ter Horst no. X; Waller 745. First and only edition of Kersteman's extremely rare "histoire scandaleuse", describing the flagrant life of Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764), mistress of Louis XV. The book is described on the title-page and in the preface as a defence against the slanderous biographies published by the French and English. This apparently couldn't convince the French ambassador Louis Augustin d'Affry, who had, immediately after publication, destroyed the full run after buying all available copies for their full price, to defend Madame de Pompadour her good name. With modern bookplate on pastedown. The engraved frontispiece is possibly transferred from another work and has a small restored tear in the margins. Faint dampstain in the last quire and a few spots throughout. Good untrimmed copy. The original wrappers soiled, but the vellum very good.

BUCHWALD, JOHANNES de. - [THE GREATEST BOTANICAL CURIOSITY OF DENMARK]
Copenhagen, Höppfner, (1721). 8vo. Samt. helldrbd. Ryg og kapitæl med brugsspor. (16),544 pp. Bladkanter brunede. Med omkring 180 indklæbede planter fra Botanisk Haves medicinplanter. 8vo. Contemporary full calf. Spine and capitals with wear. Edges of leaves browned. (16), 544 pp. With ab. 180 original, dried plants taken from the medical plants of the Botanical Gardens inserted. Ab. 10 plants might have fallen out, but it's not certain that they were ever inserted. Extremely rare. This truly splendid book contains a stunning ab. 180 real, dried plants, taken from the Botanical Gardens in Copenhagen in ab. 1720. Buchwald was the King's doctor. He was a skilled surgeon, and due to his frindship with the king, he was given the chair of medical professor at the university in Copenhagen. This profoundly changed medical studies in Denmark, where previously only theoretical doctors had taught surgery to the students. He also had a keen interest in botany and as professor of medicine, he was in charge of the great botaical gardens with its excellent section of medicinal plants. The moment he was put in charge, he began reforming the Botanical Garden, which did not please everyone. He also made the present work, which is a sort of descriptive catalogue of the , in which he organized the plants alphabetically and enhanced it with real specimens from the Garden. The work first appeared with Latin text in 1720. and the year after in German translation, by his son. Both versions appeared both with and witout the original plants, thus also as a mere printed catalogue. And copies vary. W … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tootel, Hugh ; a.k.a. Charles Dodd (1672-1743)
London: Printed in the Year MDCCXXI, 1721. London: Printed in the Year MDCCXXI. Good+. 1721. Softcover. 4 p.l., 3-144 pages; Disbound, small octavo, gathered in fours. Untrimmed edges. This anonymous volume makes an appearance in Halkett and Laing (IV, 315) -- attributed as "[Thomas Fulford?]" The English Short Title Catalogue repeats this, watered down a bit to "Sometimes attributed to Thomas Fulford." Fortunately, the DNB steers us in a different direction. Under the long article about one "Charles Dodd" we learn that the man who wrote under that name was really born as Hugh Tootel. As an English Catholic, he had ample reason to be evasive of easy identification. DNB attributes this 1721 work to Tootel/Dodd, without any question marks or equivocation. The first part of the title is a clear clue to the author's Catholic faith, being a salutation from the Catholic Mass -- PAX VOBIS (meaning "peace to you"). The long subtitle can easily be parsed as philosophically Catholic. ["setting forth the rule for the truth, and true sense of Scriptures: establish'd by our Saviour; transmitted to posterity by his Apostles; rendering the most illiterate as able divines for the right understanding of the word of God, as the greatest peadants in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin."] This is appropriate, since Hugh Tootel, before his formal studies of Philosophy, was born in Durton-in-Broughton , Lancashire and confirmed in the Catholic faith at Euxton Burgh Chapel - the property of the Dalton family, in September 1687 -- the same year that King James II, the last Ro … [Click Below for Full Description]

[ANONYMOUS]
Napolo: Per Francesco Ricciardi, 1721, 1721. First and only edition. Title a little spotted and foxed at the edges; very good copy. Rare.. Single bifolium, modern marbled wrappers, four pages. Woodcut vignette title and woodcut illustration in the text. A learned bookman from Berkeley, California generously interpreted the text for us: "A popular account of a female Great White Shark captured and killed by an armada of Neapolitan fishermen in a "vendetta" undertaken after one of their number was eaten while diving for shellfish. Inside the shark were found a great many fish and a few human bones, including the scalp of the poor fisherman, with hair still intact. Since the days of Pliny, the Bay of Naples has been notable for the variety and abundance of its seafood. It was the inevitable location for the world's leading marine research station, the Stazione zoologica Anton Dohrn, founded in 1872, staffed by scientists, with specimens supplied by local fishermen. The characteristic Neapolitan mixture of science and superstition may be seen in this pamphlet, which gives the scientific name of the "mostruoso pesce", Canis Charcharias, while noting that it is the habit of the locals to set its teeth in silver as an amulet to hang round the necks of children, to ward off fear and the pains of teething." Francesco Ricciardi was a Neapolitan printer and publisher in the first half of the 18th century.
