JOHN SENEX
1721. Incisione in rame di mm 420x540, colorata a mano ai confini dei continenti. Tratta da "A new General Atlas of the world". John Senex (fl.1690 - 1740) fu un incisore, editore e geografo della regina Anna d'Inghilterra. In collaborazione con James Maxwell e Charles Price, produsse alcune mappe, ammirevoli in quanto a precisione, del mondo e dei continenti. In accordo con le conoscenze geografiche del tempo, la mappa rappresenta la California come un isola e l'Australia incompleta ed unita alla Nuova Guinea. Tali imprecisioni aumentano ancor di più il valore storico e la particolarità estetica di questo mappamondo. Bell'esemplare con lievi arrossamenti.

Qur'an.
1721. 8vo. (12), 114, (2), 558, (34) pp. Title page printed in red and black. Contemporary full vellum with ms. title to spine. First printing thus. - The edition of Christian Reineccius (1668-1752) contains the Latin text of Luigi Marracci (1612-1700), to which are added a history of the Quran and an account of the Muslim faith. Marracci's text, published in 1698, constituted the first accurate Latin translation, the first scholarly printed Quran (including a much more accurate Arabic text than any previously printed). "It was a considerable progress that the Quran, much maligned by so scholars many in the West possessing no familiarity at all with its content, now was made generally available" (cf. Fück). - Some browning throughout, as common; old ownership "Steph. Manno" stamped to title page. Altogether very well-preserved in an immaculate contemporary full vellum binding. Schnurrer p. 413f.

Segue una risposta di Vallisnieri allo stesso Rotari sul medesimo argomento. Compare poi una seconda lettera di Vallisnieri all'abate Girolamo Lioni intorno alle produzioni marine che si trovano sui monti, e agli effetti del diluvio. La terza relazione tratta dello scoglio appena comparso nei pressi dell'isola greca di Santorini (fatto avvenuto il 23 marzo 1707). Vallisnieri, nel registrare questi ritrovamenti, conclude che i pesci e i crostacei che 'ritrovansi sui monti sono l'effetto di inondazioni del mare'.

According to Taylor, Hatton kept a mathematical school in Stourbridge, Worcs. He produced a new edition of Recorde's Gound of Artes, and wrote a number of books on commerce, as well arithemtic. He seems to have been well known in scientific circles, to judge by the Subscribers, and the Dedication of the book to John Keill, Professor of Astronomy at Oxford, acknowledging favours. It is an interesting, 4-page, List of Subscibers. Gentlemen preponderate, aristocrats are almost absent, and the scientists are a distinguished number - Newton (see Harrison 744), Halley, Wren, Keill, Desaguliers. There are assorted lawyers, booksellers, and merchants, and tradespeople - soapmaker, watchmaker, painter, writing-master, instrument maker, &. One name that does not appear is Daniel Campbell, quite likely the wealthy Glasgow merchant of that name (1671/2–1753).

Senex John
London 1721 - Double page engraved map with outline original colouring, 53 x 30 cms. Third state of Christopher Browne's seminal map, first issued in 1685, here with changes to the cartouche and dated 1719. It was published in John Senex's A New General Atlas, London, 1721, and is a revised state of Christopher Browne's map, an important delineation of the Chesapeake Bay region, derived mainly from the earlier surveys of Augustine Herrman (1673). This is also one of the earliest maps to adopt a North-South orientation on the page. The boundary for Delaware (then part of Pennsylvania) is shown, favoring the claims of Lord Baltimore, rather than the Cape Henelopen boundary, which was finally ratified by the British Courts when the dispute was settled in the 1730s and finally mapped by Mason & Dixon several decades later. New Jersey is divided into East and West Jersey. From Senex's New General Atlas, London, 1721. Cumming p.293; Tooley p. 104;

DANIEL, Gabriel
70 engraved plates. 3 p.l., xxxviii, 626 pp.; xx, 770 pp., one leaf of errata, approbation, & privilege. Two vols. Large thick 4to, fine cont. polished tree calf (head of spine of Vol. I very slightly chipped, minor foxing), spines richly gilt, red morocco lettering pieces on spines. Paris: D. Mariette et al., 1721. First edition and a splendid set from the Macclesfield library. Daniel (1649-1728), a Jesuit historian, wrote an extremely successful history of France which first appeared in 1713 and a number of other works of history and commentaries on the writings of Descartes. This is the standard work on the history of militias in France which had played such an important role in the earlier history of that country. Before 1688, France has three kinds of organized military forces which were not professional in character nor employed full-time: the urban militia, the militia active in the countryside, and the militia protecting the coast line and borders. By the end of the 17th century, the introduction of firearms began to favor the professional soldier and militias began to lose their effectiveness. Increased fire power -- muskets, pistols, and cannons -- became the domain of the highly trained professional soldier. In 1688, François de Louvois, the secretary of war for Louis XIV, created royal militias to serve as auxiliary forces to the professional army. Their roles were partly to find drafts for and partly to augment the regular army. The plates depict battle formations, weaponry, devices used in sieges, fortified cities, other fortifications, bombs, uniforms of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRAKTUR
Pennsylvania, February 3, 1721. Single sheet, (3 ½ x 3 ¼ inches). Very fine Fraktur manuscript Valentine card with floral embellishments and depiction of a crane, in pen and red, black, and green ink and watercolor wash heightened with gum arabic. Provenance: The Dr. Frank H. Sommer III Trust. Doyle sale 13BP04, November 25, 2013, Lot 296. ORIGINAL FRAKTUR MANUSCRIPT VALENTINE. This beautifully lettered and decorated Valentine is cut in the shape of a heart, with a ten-line poem as well as the date "Anno 1721 Den 3 February," and a small figure of a crane at the bottom identified as "Ein Kranich" ("a crane"). Approximate transcription follows: "Kunst und liebe tot defacten kan datselve lich figmacten Luft zur Lugend mitzig machet / Kunst und Weiss- heit verurfachet / dass man Pommt zu hohen- Dingen / Drumuss man nach Lugent ringen. Man soll nichts zum Lernen spahren / Felts schon schnoer in ersten Jahren / Ists dochleicht hernach und brin- get / Dass uns unsser Heil gelin- get." Fraktur work was used to decorate many different kinds of manuscripts and documents made by the mainly German-speaking communities of Pennsylvania. Fraktur is also the name of the specif-ic style of calligraphic lettering used on these documents, as here. It was a popular typeface in German-speaking parts of Europe from the mid-1500s until the 1940s. In 1683, upon William Penn's invitation, Mennonites from Krefeld, Germany, settled near Philadelphia. Others fol-lowed, coming from Germany, Switzerland, and Holland..

Soundly bound within a marbled card wrapper. Clean pages. Wear along the spine. Richard Bradley, a Fellow of the Royal Society and Professor of Botany at Cambridge first published most of this text as A Short Historical Account of Coffee in 1714 ("all trace of which appears to be lost," Ukers, All About Coffee, p.42). He republished it in 1721 with more medical information and this revised title to take advantage the terror gripping England as a result of the Great Plague of Marseille. In addition to discussing the supposed medical effects of coffee, Bradley provided a bibliography of the few European writings about the plant and drink entertainingly annotated with his own observations and opinions. He also included instructions for preparing the drink (including drying, roasting, grinding and boiling) just as did "Persons of Distinction in Holland." As a frontispiece, Bradley provided a folding plate with an illustration of "The Coffee Plant." Scarce outside of institutions. As of 2016, although OCLC shows 26 institutions hold undamaged copies, none are currently available for sale within the trade, and only five sold at auction within the last 80 years per ABPC and Rare Book Hub.

Mather, Cotton
London, 1721. vi,304,vii-[1]pp. Contemporary paneled calf, neatly rebacked in matching style, spine gilt, leather label. Minor toning and foxing, a very good copy. This is one of the most curious controversial books in the vast Mather canon. Although Mather's exploration herein of the wonders of nature is intended to exhibit God's presence in the world, the book is essentially scientific and was apparently written with a self- aggrandizing motive. Mather had a flair for science, having helped to introduce smallpox inoculation into America, and in 1714 he began using the initials of a Fellow of the Royal Society after his name. According to Stevens, Mather wrote a letter of thanks to the Society and continued correspondence, but there was much contemporaneous skepticism about whether he had the right to use the august "F.R.S." This work, written while the controversy was still hot, was apparently intended to demonstrate Mather's competence and eagerness to be America's first Royal Society member. Mather's most substantial and personally significant work of science. HOLMES, COTTON MATHER 52-A. SABIN 46253.
