Trott, Nicholas:
London: B. Cowse, 1721.. [4],[ix],[1],[2],[10],435pp. Title printed in red and black, woodcut printer's device on the title (rose and crown). Folio. Contemporary paneled calf, rebacked, spine gilt with raised bands, morocco labels. Endpapers renewed. Very good. Trott, the grandson of Bermuda founder Perient Trott, first came to South Carolina in 1699 as the attorney general of the colony, and was appointed chief justice in 1703. During his time on the bench in South Carolina, he is perhaps best remembered as the Vice Admiralty Judge during the trial of notorious pirate Captain Stede Bonnet. Upon his retirement from public service, he spent the rest of his life as a legal scholar. With the present work, Trott joined his interests in the law with his years of attempting to establish the Church of England within the colonies. Trott's LAWS comprise the collected ecclesiastical acts from South Carolina (pp.1-77), North Carolina (pp.83-104), Virginia (pp.113- 161), Maryland (pp.171-221), Pennsylvania (pp.227-243), New Jersey (pp.249-257), New York (pp.263-280), Connecticut (pp.285-298), Rhode Island (pp.303-304), Massachusetts-Bay (pp.311-337), New Hampshire (pp.343- 348), Barbadoes (pp.353-370), Antego (pp.375-380), Nevis (pp.385- 390), the Leeward Islands (pp.395-403), Jamaica (pp.409-426), and Bermuda (pp.431-435). Each section devoted to a colony is preceded by its own sectional title. Importantly, in the Preface, Trott details his sources for each colony and in many cases they were compiled from original manuscript records.

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.

BRADLEY, Richard; AGRICOLA, G(eorg). A(ndreas).
London: P. Vaillant, and W. Mears and F. Clay: , 1721. First English edition, translated, with additions, by Richard Bradley. "This was the first treatise on cuttings and graftings, and it made Agricola famous." (Hunt 452). Georg Andreas Agricola was a German doctor from Regensburg whose discoveries regarding plant propagation aroused significant interest at the beginning of the eighteenth century. In a book entitled NEU- UND NIE ERH?-RTER DOCH IN DER NATUR UND VERNUNFFT WOHLGEGEGRÜNDETER VERSUCH DER UNIVERSAL VERMEHRUNG ALLER BÄUME, STAUDEN UND BLUMEN-GEWÄCHSE (1716-1717) he first published details of his methods, including the use of a plaster he called "vegetable mummy," to refute exaggerated claims made about his discoveries by another writer. Bradley prepared this English translation and added to it his own preface as well as a translation of the preface from the French edition. The text is illustrated with copies of the plates from the original German edition. These plates depict examples of the regenerative process described by Agricola along with the grafting techniques, tools and structures employed in the various operations. In publishing Agricola's discoveries in England Bradley was doing what he seemed to do best: publicizing the latest horticultural advances and theories at a moment close to their inception. Hunt 452; Henrey 411 Royal 4to (27 x 22 cm); (xxiv) + 300 + (iv) pp. + 22 plates (some folding) with 34 engravings.

First edition. - The priest Gaudereau (1663-1743) had gone to Persia in 1689 in the company of Begnine Vachet, a director of the Seminary of Foreign Missions.

After Sanson's departure in 1692, Gaudereau continued negotiations with Suleiman, after 1694 with Husayn. Having negotiated a military and commercial alliance between Persia and the French East India Company, he returned to Isfahan, which he quit for Europe in 1703. It was during this journey from Constantinople and Trabzon that in September 1704 he contracted the illness he describes in his book, which he based on his own experience, having miraculously survived . - Occasional brownstaining, otherwise fine.

Halle im Magdeburgischen, In Verlegung der Neuen Buchhandlung, 1721.. 19 Bll., 360 S., 19 Bll. (Register), 1 Bl. Errata, 8°, Pappband d. Zt.. DNB Comp. Ed. 121; Graesse S.84; Rosenthal 3947; Hayn/G. III, 176; Ackermann II/786. - Hauptwerk des 1731 verstorbenen Autors; der Geologe u. Chirurg beschäftigte sich mit Aberglauben u. Okkultismus u. veröffentlichte vorl. Werk 1705 in London. Es ist "amüsant geschrieben, voller Klatsch und grotesker Erzählungen" (DNB a.a.O.) u. basiert angeblich auf realen Erfahrungen des Autors mit Geistern seiner Heimat Somersetshire. Der Bischof von Gloucester lobte das Werk ausdrücklich. Im letzten Kapitel geht der Autor auch näher auf das Werk von Balthasar Bekker "Die Bezauberte Welt" ein, das im Gegensatz zu Beaumont die Existenz von wirkungsvoller Magie u. Hexerei bestreitet. - Einband stärker beschabt u. bestossen; oberes Kapital mit kl. Fehlstelle; Innendeckel mit ExLibris; ohne das Frontispiz (fehlt); Titel mit kl. Prägestempel; tlw. gebräunt u. leicht braunfleckig, sonst ein gutes Expl.

Cant, Arent
Pieter van der Aa, Leiden, 1721. Cant, Arent (1695-1723). Impetus primi anatomici ex lustratus cadaveribus nati. . . . Large folio. [6] 28pp. Engraved title vignette, 6 folding engraved plates after drawings by the author. Leiden: for the author by Pieter vander Aa, 1721. 504 x 372 mm. Speckled calf c. 1721, gilt spine, a little worn & spotted, spine and corners repaired. Fore-edge of plate 6 repaired, a few tears and chipping to some margins, some damp stains mainly confined to final blank end-leaves, but otherwise very good. Russian library stamp on the verso of the title. From the library of Ira M. Rutkow, with his pencil signature on the rear flyleaf, and the collection of Dean S. Edell. First Edition. Cant, a pupil of Frederik Ruysch, was a skilled anatomist and artist whose ambitious plan to publish a great anatomical work was interrupted by his premature death at the age of 28. The present work represents the only volume of Cant's projected anatomy; it contains six large folding plates, drawn by the author, illustrating the anatomy of the head, heart, stomach, shoulder and knee joints, thoracic duct, etc. Cant was one of the few early anatomists to make use of the "grid-reference" identification system devised by Eustachius (1510/20 -1574), in which anatomical structures are located by means of numbered borders at the side and top of each plate; this method allows the anatomist to illustrate his figures without superimposed lettering or numbering.

Defoe was just five years old in Cripplegate at the time of the plague (1665). To reconstruct the horrors of the epidemic as it spread parish by parish, the shutting up of infected houses, the closing down of trade, Defoe drew upon a variety of contemporary sources, including the present works according to David Roberts (see infra). As was his custom, Defoe enriched his extraordinary narrative with a wealth of fictitious detail. The works are attested as being among Defoe's sources by David Roberts, for which see his introduction to Defoe's "A Journal of the Plague Year," ed. Louis Landa (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1990), p. ix. * Ad. 1: Loimologia: or, an historical account of the plague in London in 1665. London, 1721.

London - J. D., 1721 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The very scarce collectd works of John Denns, regarded as Englands first drama critic. The first volume contains two title pages with different dates. The first title page is a more detailed one, is dated 1721, with the second, shorter title page dated 1718. The second volume contains one title page only, dated 1718. John Dennis (1657 - January 6, 1734), was an English critic and dramatist, born in London, the son of a saddler. Neither the poems nor the plays of Dennis are much remembered, although one of his tragedies, a violent attack on the French in harmony with popular prejudice, entitled Liberty Asserted, was produced with great success at Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1704. Dennis is best remembered as a critic, and his earliest works, which lack the rancour that afterwards gained him the nickname of Furius, are regarded as his best. His sense of his own importance approached mania, and he is said to have desired the Duke of Marlborough to have a special clause inserted in the Treaty of Utrecht to secure him from French vengeance. Marlborough pointed out that although he had been a still greater enemy of the French nation, he had no fear for his own security. This tale and others of a similar nature may well be exaggerations prompted by his enemies, but the infirmities of character and temper indicated in them were real. Condition: These volume have been rebound with new pastedowns and end papers. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including a few marks to the boards and mild bumping to the spines.

Senex, John.
London: , c1721. Double page engraved map, 500mm x 580mm (24" x 20"), hand colored in outline, title cartouche in lower left corner. Scattered short tears and chips in margins, some minor browning and offsetting, paper a little brittle; still attractive with a crisp and bright image. John Senex (1678-1740) was a well-respected English cartographer that was named geographer to Queen Anne. Around 1719 he published a small book of undecorated maps, but a couple of years later he went upscale and produced a large set of maps of various parts of the world in 1721. This is a somewhat scarce attractive map of the African continent, which includes a decorative cartouche that shows the pyramids, a Moor brandishing a sword, and a shield mounted by a dragon. The map has good detail, even of the interior, for the period, and according to the title, is based on the latest observations. Norwich 76. Van De Gohm 142.
