        The North Prospect of Cliefden House in Buckinghamshire the Seat of the Right Hon:ble The Earl of Orkney

      London: Published by Colen Campbell, 1725. Engraved by Henry Hulsbergh. Watermarked laid paper. A few spots. Repaired split at bottom of centerfold. Browning at edges. 10 x 19 1/2 inches. 19 3/4 x 26 1/2 inches. A noble British Palladian facade from Colen Campbell's "Vitruvius Britannicus." Colen Campbell's Vitruvius Britannicus is considered one of the greatest eighteenth-century English architectural works. Campbell's seminal text helped establish Palladianism as the English national style and gave a unified façade to England's architectural landscape. Campbell published the first three volumes between 1715 and 1725, but the text was continued in two subsequent volumes by Woolfe and Gandon in 1767 and 1771. The work is comprised of large, finely engraved illustrations, plans, and cross sections of English country houses and parks. This rendition of the north facade of Cliefden was drawn by Campbell and engraved by Henry Hulsbergh (d.1729). Colen Campbell (1676-1729) was a descendant of the Campbells of Cawdor Castle in Scotland. As an architect, he favored the Palladian style and through his own designs and withVitruvius Britannicus successfully established it as the dominant style in great houses, public and private, in England. Cliefden House near Maidenhead was at one time a residence of Frederick, Prince of Wales, son of George II, but outlived by his father. The building burnt down in 1795.

Pinto a Portuguese explorer whose "exploits are known through the posthumous publication of his memoir Pilgrimage (Portuguese: Peregrinação) in 1614.. In the course of his travels in the Middle and Far East, Pinto visited Ethiopia, the Arabian Sea, China (where he claimed to have been a forced laborer on the Great Wall), India and Japan. He claimed to have been among the first group of Europeans to visit Japan and initiate the Nanban trade period. He also claimed to have introduced the gun there in 1543. It is known that he funded the first Christian church in Japan, after befriending a Catholic missionary and founding member of the Society of Jesus later known as St Francis Xavier"(Wikipedia). Upon returning to Portugal, Pinto wrote "his famous Peregrinacao, now regarded as one of the finest travel books of all time"(Howgego P99). "It is, moreover, a classic record of the experiences and observations of one of the earliest Europeans to penetrate into the interior of oriental countries, which, in that era, were practically unknown. He was the first European to enter Japan (in 1542), seven years before Saint Francis Xavier, the Apostle of the Indies"(Cox I, p. 324). .

        De Vita & Rebus Gestis Serenissmiae Principis Mariae Scotorum Reginae, Franciae Dotariae,

      London - Jacob Woodman and David Lyon, 1725 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce first edition of De Vita & Rebus Gestis Serenissmiae Principis Mariae Scotorum Reginae. Bound in a contemporary full leather binding with gilt lettering and blindstamped decoration. Two Volumes, complete. This work isthe life of Mary, Queen of Scots, in Latin. The binding could do with strengthening but still good to see it is the original and this is a rare work, last seen t uction in 2001 and before that only in 1985 in the last thrity years. Samuel Jebb, d. 1772, was a physician and scholar. He was educated at Mansfield grammar school, and Peterhouse, Cambridge. He was intended for the church, but being a nonjuror he was unable to take orders. He remained at Cambridge at least until 1718, when he became librarian to Jeremy Collier in London and began to occupy himself with literary work. . . Possibly the death of Collier in 1726 had something to do with Jebb's change of profession, for he commenced the study of medicine, attending Mead's private practice, and also learning chemistry and pharmacy. . . Jebb took the degree of MD in 1728 and set up as a physician where he combined medical practice with his literary work. . . . He did not become a licentiate of the College of Physicians until 1751. (from the DNB)Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. The boards are held by the cords only, and could possibly detach in the post, even after careful packaging. The frontendpapers of volume2 are detached. There is significant wear to the extremities, including significant bumping and rubbing, with some loss. Three of the four spine labels are missing. Internally the pages generally clean and bright, with slight browning to the page edges, and the very occasional spot. There are occasional slightly browned watermarks that do not affect the visibility of the text. Overall the condition is good, with a very good interior..

        Le Maître à Danser. Qui enseigne la maniere de faire tous les differens pas de Danse dans toute la régularité de l'Art, & de conduire les Bras à chaque pas

      Engraved frontis. & 59 finely engraved plates (four are folding). xxiv, 271, [1] pp. 8vo, cont. polished calf (very well rebacked to match, a few signatures slightly browned), double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: J. Villette, 1725. First edition of "the most authoritative exposition of the early 18th-century French style of dancing, a style which was performed throughout Europe because of its elegance and refinement. The book was read and approved by Louis Pécour, dancing-master for the Paris Opéra, and may thus be taken to represent the central French practice of its day. It gives a clear and detailed account of such matters as the correct way to stand, move and ask a lady to dance, etiquette at court balls and the movements and steps of dances, as well as a complete description of the minuet. It is directed primarily towards the needs of social dancing, and does not discuss virtuoso practices peculiar to ballet. The book, which was several times reprinted, contains many excellent drawings which clarify the verbal descriptions."-New Grove, Vol. 15, p. 573. The largest of the folding plates depicts the grand ball of the King. This plate is frequently missing. Rameau (fl. early 18th century), was dancing-master to Elizabeth Farnese (1692-1766), who became Queen of Spain on her marriage to Philip V in 1714. Fine copy. .

        Hispaniæ et Portugalliæ Regna

      Amsterdam: Peter Schenck Junior, 1725. Copper engraving with stunning period colour. Printed on fine laid paper. In excellent condition. 18 ¾ x 22 ½ inches. 22 ¼ x 26 inches. An elegant map of Spain and Portugal by the celebrated cartographer Nicolaes Visscher. For nearly a century the Visscher family dominated Amsterdam's map trade. Claez Jansz Visscher (1587-1652) founded the business at the beginning of the seventeenth century, establishing the firm near the workshop of the great Dutch publisher Pieter van der Keere. At this time he produced a few separately issued maps but his first major atlas was completely comprised of maps printed from van der Keere's old plates. The business was continued by Visscher's son and grandson, Nicholaes Visscher I (1618-1679) and Nicholaes Visscher II (1649-1702). During their lifetimes they issued a great quanity of atlases, which they consistently updated and revised with the latest cartographic discoveries. Elizabeth Visscher, the widow of Nicholaes II, continued the business after her husband's death and published both an Atlas Minor and an Atlas Major in several revised editions. This is a very attractive and readable map of the Iberian Peninsula by Nicolaes Visscher. The cartouche shows the combined coat of arms representing one kingdom, as it was under Philip II (and his successors) until 1640, when Portugal broke away.

        [Baron Halifax' Residence] This New Design of my Invention is most humbly Inscribed to the Rt. Honble. the Earl of Halifax

      London: Published by Colen Campbell, 1725. Engraved by Henry Hulsbergh. On laid paper. Two repaired tears in the bottom margin, well outside image. 19 1/2 x 26 1/2 inches. From Colen Campbell's "Vitruvius Britannicus, or the British Architect" Vitruvius Britannicus is one of the great eighteenth-century English architectural works. It illustrates, in a way, the social revolution that occured in the first half of the 18th century under the governance of Robert Walpole. Noble country estates as grand as any in continental Europe appeared throughout the land. These are buildings of Classical formality and grandeur, implying familial and imperial permanence, vast, symmetrical palaces that preside over their surroundings.Colen Campbell (1676-1729) was a descendant of the Campbells of Cawdor Castle in Scotland. As an architect, he favored the Palladian style and, through his own designs and withVitruvius Britannicus , helped establish it as the dominant style in great buildings, both public and private, in England. This design for the Earl of Halifax was Campbell's own.

        Furnival's Inn, Copperplate Engraving, c. 1725

      1725. [Engraving]. [Inns of Chancery]. Sutton, Nicholas, Engraver. Furnival's Inn, c. 1725. 13" x 18" copperplate engraving, handsomely matted and glazed. Image notably fresh. * This engraving, which has a caption near the top margin, offers a bird's eye view of the courtyard of Furnival's Inn, its buildings and the surrounding neighborhood. The appearance of the Inn and the clothing and vehicles of the figures places the date of this image in the early decades of the eighteenth century. Sutton was highly regarded for his topographical engravings. Many were created for later editions of John Stow's Survey of the Cities of London and Westminster, which is probably the source of this plate. Furnival's Inn was an Inn of Chancery attached to Lincoln's Inn that was founded in 1383. Sir Thomas More was a reader at this Inn; Dickens rented rooms there in 1834 to 1837, the time when he was writing the Pickwick Papers.

        The North Prospect of Cliefden House in Buckinghamshire the Seat of the Right Hon:ble The Earl of Orkney

      London: Published by Colen Campbell, 1725. Engraved by Henry Hulsbergh. Watermarked laid paper. A few spots. Repaired split at bottom of centerfold. Browning at edges. 10 x 19 1/2 inches. 19 3/4 x 26 1/2 inches. A noble British Palladian facade from Colen Campbell's "Vitruvius Britannicus." Colen Campbell's Vitruvius Britannicus is considered one of the greatest eighteenth-century English architectural works. Campbell's seminal text helped establish Palladianism as the English national style and gave a unified façade to England's architectural landscape. Campbell published the first three volumes between 1715 and 1725, but the text was continued in two subsequent volumes by Woolfe and Gandon in 1767 and 1771. The work is comprised of large, finely engraved illustrations, plans, and cross sections of English country houses and parks.This rendition of the north facade of Cliefden was drawn by Campbell and engraved by Henry Hulsbergh (d.1729). Colen Campbell (1676-1729) was a descendant of the Campbells of Cawdor Castle in Scotland. As an architect, he favored the Palladian style and through his own designs and withVitruvius Britannicus successfully established it as the dominant style in great houses, public and private, in England. Cliefden House near Maidenhead was at one time a residence of Frederick, Prince of Wales, son of George II, but outlived by his father. The building burnt down in 1795.
