To which is added, An Account of the State of Gardening, as it is now in Great Britain ... London, W. Mears, 1721. 4to. pp. (12), 194, (2), with 28 (1 folded) handcoloured engraved plates.

Richard Bradley was elected fellow of the Royal Society of London on 1 December 1720 and in 1724 was appointed to the chair of botany at Cambridge University. "Bradley was a prolific science writer ... His style was clear and readable and his reputation immense. Bradley's main scientific contributions were his studies on the movement of sap and on the sexual reproduction of plants" (D.S.B. II, p. 390). The present work is beautifully illustrated and deals for the larger part with zoological matter. Quite a number of reptiles and amphibians are shown such as: a turtle, rattle-snake, a West Indian serpent, a lizard, a camelian, a flying lizard from Ambon, frogs, the common English toad and the Surinam frog. Small owners stamp and signature on title.

[HOWELL, Laurence.]
London: Engraven and sold by J. Sturt, sold by Joseph Hazard,, 1721. By way of Meditation On the Order for the Administration of the Lord's-Supper, or Holy Communion; According to the Liturgy of the Church of England. Small octavo (166 × 103 mm). Contemporary black morocco, spine compartments divided saltire-wise with a dotted gilt roll, gilt flower-head tools, gilt rules, sides ruled in gilt with a French fillet, corners gilt with scroll tools and a crown, similar tools forming gilt central ornaments, board-edges and turn-ins gilt with a decorative roll, comb-marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Bookseller's imprint on a pasted slip below the border of the engraved title. Engraved throughout, complete with engraved dedication leaf and subscribers list at end. A trifle rubbed at extremities, a fine copy. First edition thus, engraved throughout by the English engraver and calligrapher John Sturt (1658–1730), exhibiting his mastery of miniature work, with the engraved text illustrated with 82 engraved vignettes of scenes of the life of Christ, all within engraved decorative borders. The text and borders were separately imposed, so that copies do not always have the same border surrounding a particular page of text, and the leaves are not always bound in the same order. In this copy the dedication leaf is between pages IV and V. The imprint also varies: in this copy, the bookseller's imprint is added separately on a pasted slip.

Playing Cards]:
[Amsterdam: Nullenstein Lautje van Schotten, 1721. Fifty-two cards, plus title card and publisher's card, for a total of fifty-four cards. 2 x 3 1/2 inches each. 16mo. Each card backed on 19th-century heavy card. Bright and clean. Later ownership notation on verso of each card. Very good. In a morocco solander case. Second edition, after the first of the previous year. The first edition was issued with a title card reading: APRIL KAART OF KAART SPEL VAN MOMUS NAAR DE NIEUWSTE MODE. Cards in both editions consist of an allegorical image set above humorous couplets. While the images in each set are primarily the same, the couplets are entirely different. According to Hargrave, a booklet was also issued with these cards, but it is absent here. This ornamental set of playing cards in the French suit system (hearts, clubs, diamonds, spades) lampoons John Law's Mississippi Bubble scheme, the South Sea Company, and other parties engaged in the disastrous speculation. The publisher's card bears the image of a large cock, which also appeared on John Law's arms. "John Law's Mississippi Bubble scheme started about 1717, was at its height in 1719, and collapsed in 1720, so that Law fled from Paris. There are several allusions to the South Sea Company. On the three of spades, the three companies, the South Sea, the Mississippi, and the West Indian, sit side by side in a swing. On the four of spades, Madame la Petite [represented here as a black cat] is supposed to mean the wife of Thomas Knight, the cashier of the South Sea Company, who bought his shares in her name" - Hargrave. … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Sein Ansehen im Inlande wie im Auslande infolge seiner Schriften war enorm [wegen seiner vielen innerkirchlichen Feinde jedoch auch heftig umstritten.] Sämmtliche Schriften van Espens "sind durch Decret vom 17.

Trotzdem wurden sie gerade in Rom viel gebraucht Was die der Darstellung des positiven Rechts gewidmeten anbelangt, so gehören sie zu den besten seit dem Mittelalter, durch quellenmäßige Forschung, volle Beherrschung des Stoffes, ausgezeichnete Darstellung und reichen Inhalt; für die particulare Rechtsbildung namentlich in Belgien sind sie unübertroffen." Johann Friedrich von Schulte in ADB Band 39 (1895), S. 476-478. Es verwundert daher nicht, daß einer seiner berühmtesten Schüler der Trierer Weihbischof Johann Nicolaus von Hontheim war, der als Kirchenkritiker Febronius europaweit Resonanz erfuhr.

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 ERHÖRTER DOCH IN DER NATUR UND VERNUNFFT WOHLGEGEGRÃœNDETER 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. Original full calf, blind-stamped on upper and lower covers, with raised bands and gilt ruling on spine; lettering t … [Click Below for Full Description]

I - (Maichel): An important early history of the French Royal Library and other famous Parisian libraries including the Bibliotheca Colbertina, St.-Germain, Mazarine, libraries of many religious orders etc. Horne (p. 561) says: "A work of great rarity. It is divided into two parts, the first of which contains an account of the rise and progress of the King's Library, and of nine other public libraries, at Paris. In the second part, the author discusses the use of public libraries, and the knowledge of literary history; and treats on a MS. de Mortibus Persecutorum, in the Colbertine Library, which is usually assigned to Lucius Caecilius, but which Michaelius ascribes to Lactantius. The sources of literary history are next discussed, together with the right object of studies. Some notices are also introduced relative to the librarians and other literati then at Paris." Also Watt described this as being "a work of great rarity" and Michaud says: "Cette ouvrage est rempli de détails intéressants et il est assez recherché." Psaume p. 225 "Ouvrage rare en France". Daniel Maichel (1693-1752) was a professor of theology and philosophy at Tübbingen. II - (Reichard): A very uncommon book.
