        PARENTATOR. MEMOIRS OF REMARKABLES IN THE LIFE AND THE DEATH OF THE EVER-MEMORABLE DR. INCREASE MATHER. WHO EXPIRED, AUGUST 23, 1723.

      Boston: Printed by B. Green, for Nathaniel Belknap, 1724. - [2],x,xiv,239,[5]pp. 12mo. Modern calf, spine gilt with leather label. Titlepage soiled and worn; chips and tears at edges repaired; bottom gutter corner torn and repaired, affecting a few letters of the imprint text and border. Moderate dampstaining to first few pages; some light foxing and toning. A good copy. Cotton Mather's homage to his famed and prolific father, one of the most influential men in the history of colonial New England, who died the previous year. It constitutes the earliest extensive biography of Increase Mather, and gives important details of his religious and political activities in Massachusetts. Holmes describes the biography as an "eminently readable work." The book includes an early catalogue of Increase Mather's works. The errata notes that this title was the first work printed by Timothy Green, Junior (1703-63), at the time an apprentice in his uncle Bartholomew's shop and a member of the distinguished Boston printing family. This copy lacks the frontispiece portrait of Increase Mather, which is the second engraved portrait to be published in the British colonies. According to Holmes, the portrait was not originally published with the work and appears "to have been added to special copies, either at the time of publication, or since."

        SOBER REMARKS ON A BOOK LATELY REPRINTED AT BOSTON, ENTITULED, A MODEST PROOF OF THE ORDER & GOVERNMENT SETTLED BY CHRIST AND HIS APOSTLES IN THE CHURCH.

      Boston in N.E. Printed for Samuel Gerrish, and sold at his shop near the Brick meeting-house in Cornhill, 1724 - Second edition. 12mo., 4 p.l., 126 pp. Later red half morocco. Edward Wigglesworth, first Hollis Professor at Harvard, was the son of Michael Wigglesworth, author of The Day of Doom. In 1720 John Checkley was convicted and fined by the General Court for upholding the doctrines of the church of England against the teachings of the New England divines. The appearance of his "Modest Proof"--criticising principles, practices and interests too vital to be ignored--was most disturbing to the Mathers and other leaders, and Edward Wigglesworth was persuaded to write the above answer, to which Checkley in turn replied in his "Defence".Boston, 1724 (Sabin 12362). The whole Checkley controversy is reviewed in Slafter's "John Checkley", 2vols. Prince Society, 1897. This is the second edition, with an explaation of the additions and changes in the preface. Binding rubbed otherwise a fine copy bearing the bookplate of William G. Mather a direct descendant of Richard, Increase , Cotton and Samuel Mather. Sabin103904; Evans 2995 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        With the Roads, Rivers, Sea Coasts &c. Actually Surveyed. A New and Correct Mapp of Middlesex, Essex, and Hertfordshire

      London, 1724 - Large hand-coloured engraved map on seven sheets, dissected and mounted on linen, subscriber's coats-of-arms to borders, folding into red cloth slipcase, with publisher's label of James Wyld, rubbed. Following the commercial success of his maps of Northumberland (c1716) and Yorkshire (c1720), Warburton announced his intention to publish maps of all the counties in England and Wales, though in many cases combining several counties on one map. The marketing for his next map, (that of Middlesex, Essex and Hertfordshire) followed familiar lines and on 25th October 1720, Warburton announced that "Proposals are given out and Subscriptions taken in for Surveying and Publishing the Counties of Middlesex (cum London) Essex and Hertfordshire.which it is hoped will be as agreeable to the Nobility and Gentry that have Seats of Inheritance therein, as to those in the Counties already Survey'd, and that their Approbation of the Undertaking will be shown by a ready Compliance in sending their Coats of Arms and Subscription monies viz 16s 6p." By February 1723 Warburton was able to announce the progress of the surveys and the acceptance of over 300 subscribers for their coats-of-arms to be inserted on the map. A further announcement on 2nd November 1723 stated that the surveyor Paylor Smyth had completed his survey,though it was over a year before Warburton was able to announce the publication of the map which now included "in the margin 724 Coats of Arms, belonging to the Families that have Seats and Estates in the said Counties.The Price is Ten Shillings in Sheets, or Twelve Shillings and Sixpence if pasted on Cloth, and coloured."The announcement of the 724 coats of arms (the final production did in fact display 736), caused the immediate displeasure of the College of Heralds who attacked Warburton for the inaccuracy, even non-existence of some of the arms on the Northumberland and Yorkshire maps and even queried Warburton's right to publish arms without a proper authority "not having resided within the Herald's Office for about two Years last past". Despite the stated intention to map the whole country, Warburton carried out no further surveys, though he did announce in 1749 separate maps of Middlesex and Hertfordshire taken from the large survey, which were advertised to include borders of coats-of-arms but which never materialised in this state.The map itself is finely detailed and includes the divisions of the three counties and their hundreds and main roads, whilst the distances between the latter are indicated in miles and furlongs. Further detail includes woods, rivers, wind and water mills, battlefields, marshes and sandbanks. The most impressive feature, however, is the border of armorials of the subscribers, each one keyed to refer to his respective residence on the map. This feature had already appeared on earlier large-scale county surveys, for example Senex's map of Surrey, and had undoubtedly contributed to the success of Warburton's maps of Northumberland and Yorkshire. Whilst Warburton took by far the major part in the publication of the 3 counties map with Paylor Smyth doing the survey, Joseph Bland's part in the enterprise would appear to be limited to collecting subscriptions and the distribution of the published map. With over 700 subscribers it should have been a considerable commercial success. Aesthetically it was very pleasing due partly to the clarity of Samuel Parker's engraving (he was also responsible for the Yorkshire map) but mainly to its impressive size and multitude of armorials, all with references on the map. Each of the six topographical sheets, except sheet 2, contains coats-of-arms, the seventh sheet comprising three rows of armorials for pasting along the top of the map should it be displayed, as was intended, as a wall map. When shown in this way it is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular examples of eighteenth century English cartography ever produced. There were further editions by Thomas Bowles

      The Hague, Rutgert Christophle Alberts 1724 - Arcus Ariminensis, Arc de Rimini (Rimini, Italy) Joan Blaeu (1596-1673) Illustrated plate from Nourveau Theatre d’Italie, our Dexcription Exacte de ses Villes, Palais, Eglises, Principaux Edifices, etc. (New Theater of Italy, or Description of its Towns, Palaces, Churches, Principal Buildings, etc.) The Hague, Rutgert Christophle Alberts: 1724 Hand-colored copperplate engraving Sheet size: 21 1/4" x 13" Arguably the most celebrated mapmaker and draftsman of the 17th century, Joan Blaeu was responsible for the splendid 11-volume Atlas Maior, published in Amsterdam in 1662. The Atlas Maior was such a symbol of status that it became the traditional state gift presented by the Dutch government, its prestige derived mainly from the remarkable standards of production involved. After the completion of the atlas, Blaeu turned his attention and considerable drawing talents to an equally sumptuous publication, this time devoted to views of Italian cities and monuments. For quality of draftsmanship, evgraving, beauty of ornament, typography and quality of paper, these images have never been equaled, with the possible exception of Piranesi’s views of Rome. Each is depicted with extreme technical precision, with great esthetic conern for composition. The engravings from Blaeu’s Theatre d’Italie illustrate the highest standard of accuracy and beauty, bearing witness to the excellent craftsmanship of engraver, printer and papermaker in Northern Europe during the Baroque era.

        Synodorum generalium, ac provincialium decreta, et canones, scholiis, notis, ac historica actorum dissertatione illustrati, per F. Christianum Lupum, Iprensem, Ordinis Heremitarum Sancti Augustini, Sacrae Theologiae in alma Lovaniensi Universitate doctorem, ac regium primarium professorem .

      Albrizzi,, Venetiis, 1724 - Dodici volumi di cm. 35, pp. 400 ca. ciascuno. Bel ritratto all'antiporta del primo volume e bello stemma gesuitico in calcografia inciso da Zuliani al centro di ciascun frontespizio. Capolettera e testate in xilografia. Perfetta legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, dorsi a piccoli nervi con titoli in oro su tasselli. Tagli spruzzati. Esemplare marginoso, freschissimo ed in eccellente stato di conservazione. La cura dell'opera affidata al padre Filippini di Ravenna contiene alcuni scritti mai apparsi precedentemente. Christian Wolf nasce a Ypres nelle Fiandre il 12 giugno 1612 ed a 15 anni entra nell'ordine degli Eremiti di S. Agostino. Insegna filosofia e teologia a Colonia e Lovanio e, grazie alla sua reputazione, diventa amico del cardinale Fabio Chigi, poi papa Alessandro VII. Accusato di giansenismo viene chiamato a Roma a giustificare la sua fede dove rimane per cinque anni. Tornato a Lovanio succede a Gerard van Wern alla cattedra di regio professore, ma muore il 10 luglio 1681, prima di prenderne possesso. La sua opera consta soprattutto di raccolte di materiali altrui, trascrizioni di manoscritti, lavori di erudizione filologica nel campo della patrologia greca e latina. Wolf viene generalmente ricordato per la sua sapienza ed erudizione. Nell'"Histoire littéraire de la république des lettres" del gennaio 1726, dando l'annuncio dell'avviata edizione veneziana delle opere, si trova invece questo curioso giudizio sul Wolf: "Un habile homme, mais rempli de préjugés, & opinatre à n'en jamais démordre".

        Obeliscus Flaminus (Rome, Italy)

      The Hague, Rutgert Christophle Alberts 1724 - Joan Blaeu (1596-1673) Illustrated plate from Nourveau Theatre d’Italie, our Dexcription Exacte de ses Villes, Palais, Eglises, Principaux Edifices, etc. (New Theater of Italy, or Description of its Towns, Palaces, Churches, Principal Buildings, etc.) The Hague, Rutgert Christophle Alberts: 1724 Hand-colored copperplate engraving Plate size: 28” x 24 1/2” Arguably the most celebrated mapmaker and draftsman of the 17th century, Joan Blaeu was responsible for the splendid 11-volume Atlas Maior, published in Amsterdam in 1662. The Atlas Maior was such a symbol of status that it became the traditional state gift presented by the Dutch government, its prestige derived mainly from the remarkable standards of production involved. After the completion of the atlas, Blaeu turned his attention and considerable drawing talents to an equally sumptuous publication, this time devoted to views of Italian cities and monuments. For quality of draftsmanship, evgraving, beauty of ornament, typography and quality of paper, these images have never been equaled, with the possible exception of Piranesi’s views of Rome. Each is depicted with extreme technical precision, with great esthetic conern for composition. The engravings from Blaeu’s Theatre d’Italie illustrate the highest standard of accuracy and beauty, bearing witness to the excellent craftsmanship of engraver, printer and papermaker in Northern Europe during the Baroque era.

Antonio de Solís y Ribadeneyra (1610-1686), Spanish dramatist and historian, was at one time secretary of state as well as private secretary to Philip IV.

His History of the Conquest of Mexico covers the three years between the appointment of Cortes to command the invading forces of Spain and the fall of the city of Mexico. It is considered a classic and has been used as a primary source by later historians. Sabin 86487. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
