Later polished calf, flat spine (rebacked) lettered in gilt, speckled boards framed with French fillet, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled end papers (end papers and fly leaves renewed). An excellent copy, several engravings and a few pages with very light marginal stains, else clean and bright. Provenance: bookplate of the collector Horace Noble Pym (1844-1896) to front paste down, with his red ink library stamp to front fly leaf. Foxon G74. Rothschild 922 (calling this the fourth edition). 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]

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.

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.

SCHELTEMA, Jacobus.
Muller, Bibl. Neerlando-Russe, 319 ("sur pap[ier] fort. - rare"); Nijhoff cat., Ouvrages sur la Russie et la Pologne 297; Saalmink, p. 1721. First edition of a detailed account of Tsar Peter the Great's visits to the Dutch Republic in 1697-1698 and 1717, dedicated to the Admiral Jan Hendrik van Kinsbergen. The book opens with an 86-page introduction describing Russia's history and Dutch-Russian relations. Peter's visit of 1697 was part of his "Grand Embassy", aimed at creating an anti-Ottoman alliance with European monarchs. He initially travelled disguised as a workman, leaving the mission nominally in charge of his ambassadors and living himself in a modest cottage (shown in one plate), thinking he would learn far more about Dutch advances in shipbuilding from the floor of the shipyards than in conference with statesmen. He visited Nicolaas Witsen, the wharf of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and the famous collections of Frederik Ruysch, Jacob de Wilde, Levinus Vincent and Simon Schijnvoet. During his second embassy (1717) he bought the renowned collections of Albertus Seba, Frederik Ruysch and Levinus Vincent and had them transported to St Petersburg. The plates show Peter's residence in Zaandam and his visits to Nicolaas Witsen and the VOC wharf. With a list of subscribers. Printed on laid paper watermarked C & I. Honig = Dutch lion on a crowned shield with "Fryheyt" and "Pro Patria Eiusque Libertate", topped with a branch, closely resembling Heawood 3151.

KERSTEMAN, Franciscus Lievens].
1721. 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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

WAERMA, Meindert.
Bierens de Haan 5217; Houzeau-Lancaster 12119; STCN (5 copies, incl. 3 incomplete); for the author: Mennonite Encyplopedia IV, p. 868. First and only edition of a rare work on the computing of solar and lunar eclipses. The author describes and illustrates a new method using geometry (rule and compass) rather than arithmetic to calculate the data for eclipses for any location worldwide. The work further includes data for the 4 seasons, the dominical letter, the golden number and Easter. It is dedicated to Otto Tholen, "majoor der stad Embden", who also drew 4 of the illustrations.Meindert Waerma was a preacher of the Groningen Old Flemish congregation at Emden in East Friesland, Germany. The present work seems to be his only contribution to astronomy. Many extant copies lack the fold-out errata leaf.With contemporary owner's name on flyleaf, the errata corrected in manuscript and a note "Is van alle fauten gezuiverd" (all errors have been corrected). In very good condition, with only a faint water stain in the upper part of several leaves. Untrimmed.
