        The Clergy-Man's Law: Or, The Complete Incumbent Collected from the...

      1725. Watson, William [1637?-1689]. The Clergy-Man's Law: Or, the Complete Incumbent.

To Which is Added, the Names of the Present Bishops, and Other Chief Dignitaries of the Church of England. With Large Additions. London: Printed by E. and R. Nutt, and R. Gosling, 1725. iv, [8], 652, 61 pp. Folio (12-1/2" x 8"). Contemporary calf, raised bands, blind frames and fillets to boards. Some rubbing, staining and a few scuffs, wear to corners and spine ends, front board partially detached but secure, rear board just starting. Early bookplate and annotation to front pastedown. Light offsetting to endleaves, title page and text notably fresh. * Third Edition. "[During the eighteenth century a] number of books aimed at setting out more or less a summary of those branches of law which would be useful to the clergy. The most elaborate of these books is [the present title], which was first published in 1701 and reached a fourth edition by 1747. The author was a clergyman who held the deanery of Battel; but he had been educated with a view to becoming a practitioner in the ecclesiastical courts, and had taken his degree of doctor of laws. Because he had had a legal education he was, he tells us 'soon apply'd to by his neighbours, as a person able to advise them in the many doubts and difficulties that daily occurred to them.' (...) The book deals clearly and systematically in fifty-nine chapters with the law and practice on all topics which are useful to the clergy. It is a learned book; but, as the title page indicates, it is compiled almost entirely from the English cases, statutes and other authorities, to which the full references are given. Though the author is an LL.D. he is obviously more learned in English law than in the civil or canon law.": Holdsworth, History of English Law 12:622-623.

      Den Haag: Chez Jean Neaulme 1725 / 1730.. 3 Blatt, 866 Seiten, 1 Blatt, Errata; 4 Blatt, 517 Seiten. Band 1: Ganzleder der Zeit mit ornamentaler Rückenvergoldung, zwei Rückenschildern und Wappensupralibros auf beiden Deckeln (beschabt und bestossen, Kapitale mit kleinen Fehlstellen, Bezug des Vorderdeckels mit kleinen Wurmspuren, innen etwas fleckig und, Quart und Oktav.. (braunfleckig, am Ende Wurmfraß im weißen Rand, sonst innen kaum gebräunt und fleckig, insgesamt recht gut erhalten). Quarto, 26,7 x 22 cm. Band 2: Ganzleder der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung (Rückengelenke brüchig und teils aufgeplatzt, Fehlstelle am oberen Kapital durch Wurmfraß, innen durchgehend starker Wurmfraß an der Oberkante und am Innensteg ohne Textverlust, sonst nur leicht gebräunt und gut lesbar, Zustand im Preis berücksichtigt !). Oktav, 16,8 x 9,8 cm. - Der erste Band in erster Ausgabe, der zweite Band in zweiter Auflage dieser englischen Geschichtsdarstellung bzw. Autobiographie aus der Feder des Bischofs von Salisbury. Auf dem Titel von Band 1 der Stempel "Comtes Uechtritz-Amade, Boes"; das Wappen des Einbandes konnten wir nicht identifizieren. Die 14 Porträts, gestochen von B. Picart, teils nach van Dyck und G. Kneller, zeigen Porträts von Jacob I., Charles I., Oliver Cromwell, Lord Clarendon, Count Essex, Queen Mary, Count Schomburg, William III. u.a. Die 4 Porträts im zweiten Band (Charles II., Jean de Wit, Frederick Duc de Schomberg und Arthur Comte d'Essex) sind in ähnlichem Stil gehalten, aber ohne Angabe der Vorlage und der Stecher. Eine zweite Ausgabe des Werks erschien beim gleichen Verleger im Jahre 1735 unter dem Titel "Histoire de ce qui s'est passe de plus memorable en Angleterre pendant la vie de Gilbert Burnet". Demnach handelt es sich um eine Übersetzung der gekürzten, von Thomas Stockhouse herausgegebenen Ausgabe von Burnets "History of his own time", deren erster Band 1724 postum in London erschienen war und deren zweiter Band erst 1735 in London erschien. Dr. Johnson hatte zum ersten Band (der ungekürzten Ausgabe) geschrieben: "Burnets Geschichte ist sehr unterhaltsam. Dem Stil nach handelt es sich allerdings um reines Getratsche. Ich glaube nicht, daß Burnet absichtlich gelogen hat; er war vielmehr so mit Vorurteilen befrachtet, daß er sich keine Mühe gab, die Wahrheit herauszubringen". Der englische Text der Autobiographie wurde immer wieder neu ediert und löste eine Flut von Pamphleten und Gegenschriften aus. Burnet (1643 - 1715) hatte bereits mit 13 Jahren seinen Magister Artium in Philosophie an der Universität in Aberdeen gemacht. Mit 18 promovierte er in Theologie. 1665 wurde er Bischof von Edinburgh und 1674 zog er nach London. Dort veröffentlichte er ab 1769 eine hochgelobte Geschichte der Reformation in England. In den Jahren 1685 bis 1688 bereiste er den Kontinent. Mit William setzte er 1688 nach England über und hielt 1689 die Krönungspredigt. Unter der Regierung von Queen Anne verlor er an Einfluß und widmete sich hauptsächlich seinen publizistischen Arbeiten. - Lowndes² I, p. 320 f. (zur englischen Ausgabe und den Gegenschriften) - Barbier II, Sp. 664 (zum Übersetzer).

Leather Cover, covers worn, Inscriptions on some pages, pages a little yellowed, some holey and ripped, some dogears, small sticker on frontcover inside This practical handbook of drugs was first published in 1694 and given an extensive review in the French Journal des Scavans. The additions to the English edition of 1712 are by the French chemist Nicholas Lemery who was a corpuscularian, though not of the same strain as Boyle. Like Levre he favoured the five element theory and the acid/alkali theory popular amongst the French but opposed by Boyle and Locke. Als Sohn von Pariser Geschäftsleuten, hatte Pierre POMET (1658-1699) schon als Kind Kontakte zum Handel mit Heilpflanzen. Auf Reisen durch Italien, England, Deutschland und Holland erweiterte er seine Kenntnisse auf dem Gebiete der Pharmazie. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Frankreich eröffnete er in Paris ein gut assortiertes Warenhaus mit medizinischen Artikeln und genoss schon bald die Achtung der angesehendsten Ärzte. POMET Junior trat in die Fusstapfen des Vaters und wurde Leiter der Hospitalapotheken von Paris. Der Vater, sehr gebildet und erfahren, wurde Hofapotheker unter Louis XIV. Immer wieder wurde er zu wissenschaftlichen Vorträgen in den "Jardin des Plantes" eingeladen. POMET gilt als "Vater der Pharmakognosie in unserem Sinne" (Alexander Tschirch) und sein Werk durch die neuartige Einteilung der Materialien als erstes illustriertes Handbuch der Pharmakognosie. Die "Histoire general des drogues" wurde 1694 erstaufgelegt und entwickelte sich zum europaweit benutzten Standardwerk des frühen 18. Jahrhunderts. Es erfuhr eine 2. franz. Auflage 1735 mit Ergänzungen aus der Feder von POMET fils. Das Werk ist bekannt wegen der zahlreichen Kupferstiche, die Pflanzen und Tiere darstellen, die in der Apotheke Verwendung fanden. Besonderes Interesse finden unter Sammlern die Darstellungen von Alltagsszenen (Verarbeitung von Vanillin, Tabak, Honig, Seide). Andere bekannte Blätter stellen Walfische, Einhörner, Elefanten und Rhinozerosse dar. Das Buch wurde ins Deutsche und Englische übersetzt. POMET schrieb ein zweites, weniger bekanntes (nicht illustriertes) Werk: "Droguier curieux, ou catalogue des drogues simples et composees" (Paris, 1695, 1709). Pierre Pomet was born in Paris on 2nd April, 1658. In his early life he travelled extensively - to Italy, Holland, Germany and England. His Grand Tour allowed him to collect recipes for medicaments and simples. On his return to Paris, he opened a druggist's shop and quickly made both an excellent living for himself and his family, and an increasingly impressive reputation amongst the French medical community. He first wrote his "Histoire Generale des Drogues" in 1694. It appeared in a folio edition, later to be republished in a new edition as two quarto volumes in 1735. The original version was translated firstly into German and published at Leipzig in 1717, and then into English, expanded with additional information from other authors, for publication in London in 1725. A mark of Pomet's authoritative position and success was the royal invitation to demonstrate his drugs at the Jardin des Plantes. Then, Pierre Pomet died quite suddenly on the 18th November.

        The Iliad of Homer & The Odyssey of Homer

      London: Bernard Lintot, 1725-26. First editions of Alexander Pope's monumental illustrated translations of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. Quarto, Subscribers edition. 11 volumes. Uniform contemporary calf, with gilt titles to the spine and corner ornaments, rebacked to style in medium brown calf, raised bands. The bookplate in each volume of Sir John C. Hobhouse. John Cam Hobhouse (1786 - 1869), was Lord Byron's close friend, literary confidante and executor. Frontispiece portrait in first volume of each work, engraved title vignette in second, folding map and folding view of the Siege of Troy, engraved head and tail pieces, decorated initials (but wanting the Shield of Achilles plate from volume V of the first work). Moderate foxing, tanning and offsetting in first four volumes of The Iliad, which is often encountered. The first volume lacks the half- title and a clean marginal tear to one binder's blank. The Odyssey, apart from some occasional marginal dusting, is generally crisp and fresh.

For the Odyssey, Pope was assisted by Elijah Fenton and William Broome, and pencil notes in the texts identify the responsible party for the specific Books and Notes. That those pencil annotations and incidental others in pencil in the same hand scattered elsewhere are Hobhouse's seems probable, as a pencil note in a quite similar (or same) hand appears at the conclusion of the Postscript to the final volume (14 Dec. 1843 J.H.), suggesting either the date of his acquisition of the set, or more likely, his completion of reading. Editions in folio (large and small) to benefit the publisher followed the appearance of each new volume in a timely fashion, the proceeds from Subscriber's quarto edition having been Pope's exclusively.

        Furnival's Inn, Copperplate Engraving, c. 1725

      1725. Sutton, Nicholas. 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.

One of the finest French 18th-century collections; the sale catalogue of the library of Du Fay (1662-1723), is considered to be the best of those compiled by Gabriel Martin, who made Paris the international center for the sale of rare books by auction. Du Fay, after losing his leg in the bombardment of Brussels in 1695, devoted the rest of his life to collecting rare books and manuscripts. Buying from all the leading dealers in Europe, he formed a superb museum of literary rarities. Du Fay was advised by his friend and notable book collector Michel Brochard, professor at the Collège Mazarin, who was the author of the notice in Latin preceding the catalogue. Du Fay became an outstanding connoisseur, a friend of eminent savants and authors, including Fontenelle, and was in contact with the best booksellers of Europe. Many of his books ultimately found their way to Count d'Hoym. Priced throughout in a contemporary hand. 4414 lots, including early MSS. and bindings. Very nice copy with the rare portrait.

        Voyages de Jean Ovington: faits à Surate, et en d'autres lieux de l'Asie et de l'Afrique

      Paris: Etienne Ganeau, 1725. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. "Having joined the East India Company as a chaplain, Ovington was assigned to the Company's vessel Benjamin for a voyage to the East Indies in 1689. Ovington stopped briefly in Bombay and then settled at Surat for two and a half years. His narrative describes Bombay as a sink of debauchery filled with whores and drunkards. Of Surat Ovington commented at length of the Mughal influence, on religious and cultural characteristics of the Hindus and Parsees, and the nature of the fakeer or Mohammedan religious mendicant. In passing Ovington described and defended the drinking of tea for which he was later attacked by Alexander Hamilton. Of the greatest interest, however, is Ovington's outline of the organization and operation of the English factory at Surat. Of the early narratives, Ovington's possesses greater interest and far wittier prose". (Riddick) These two volumes, respectively 323 pp and 318 pp, comprise the first French translation from the original English of 1698. Both volumes retain their original calf bindings with tooled and gilt spines, marbled endpapers, and red-stained text block edges. The bindings show wear and Volume I shows loss at the spine ends, but the bindings are intact and unrestored. The contents are remarkably clean, crisp, and bright with no spotting.

        An exact draught of the City of Jerusalem and the apurtenances belonging to the Temple with the genealogy of Jesus Christ our Saviour in the border thererof faithfully collected out of the Holy Scriptures

      London: Sayer. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 23 x 36". This beautiful bird's-eye view of the city of Jerusalem combines a plan of the city with biblical information related to the geneaology of Jesus Christ. The city is rendered in playful perspective, and pictorial drawings depict its significant sites and buildings, with the massive Temple of Solomon as its central landmark. Many place names are accompanied by the abbreviations of Biblical verses in which they appear. The map is also labeled with roman numerals that correspond to a key below it that describes "the city...in general and its eminent places in particular." The outer border of the map has long descriptive engraved text in four columns in the margin, keyed to 25 places in the image, and 13 details and scenes in the side borders. There is a horizontal fold, mat burn and chips to margins.Robert Sayer (1725-1794) was an important English publisher of maps, portraits, and nautical engravings. Partnering with John Bennett around the 1760s, the two published the works of well-known cartographers such as Kitchen, Jefferys, Belling, d'Anville and others. This beautiful, large-scale map is an impressive example of his work.

The Glorious Revolution, also called the Revolution of 1688, was the overthrow of King James II of England (VII of Scotland and II of Ireland) in 1688 by a union of English Parliamentarians with an invading army led by the Dutch stadtholder William III of Orange-Nassau (William of Orange) who, as a result, ascended the English throne as William III of England together with his wife Mary II of England. The expression "Glorious Revolution" was first used by John Hampden in late 1689, and is an expression that is still used by the British Parliament.

An Essay toward A Natural History of the Bible, Especially Of some Parts which relate to the Occasion of revealing Mosess Principia by John Hutchinson (1674 - 1737), an English theological writer. In this work he states that Moses advanced no new Philosophy but His Description appears to have been from God, and for his Glory, and the Benefit of MenIndeed the Works of God, either natural or spiritual, are, without Revelation, unsearchable. . . Among other things, he rejects the theory that seeks to show that the biblical reports of creation, the flood, and the genealogy of Christ are not true by seeking, for instance, to explain both the Deluge and presence of fossils on mountains by suggesting that a comet run foul upon the Earth, and swashd the Seas on to Land, and so drownd all, and formd Mountains full of Oyster-shells, and after that another gave it a Side-wipe, and set it a jogging again, and dropd a few Animals upon it.

        STAMPA REGIÆ BIBLIOTHECÆ, EQUESTRIS ACADEMIÆ, VETERIS CASTRI CUM SUO UTRINQUE FORO, AD SEPTENTRIONEM INSPECTIO.

      AMSTELODAMI, 1725 (mm 495 x 623 più marg.)Incisione originale su matrice di rame, eseguita all'acquaforte , su disegno tracciato nel 1674 da Giovanni Tommaso Borgonio (Perinaldo 1618 circa - ante 1692). In lastra, sopra la linea d'inquadramento superiore, titolo; sotto la parte figurata, 8 richiami in lingua latina. La tavola è tratta da una monumentale descrizione dei dominii dei duchi sabaudi, siti al di qua e al di là delle Alpi: nell'opera editoriale si affiancano relazioni scritte a splendide vedute topografiche, disegnate da artefici attivi presso la corte torinese e tradotte su rame da incisori nordeuropei. Nell'immagine, parte del primo tomo del Theatrum, è descritto il cuore della Torino barocca, con gli aulici edifici di rappresentanza legati alla corte: la raffigurazione ha un carattere non realistico, ma ideale, e segue gli ambiziosi progetti architettonici del tempo. A sinistra in basso, la galleria che collega il Palazzo Ducale al Castello ospita la biblioteca del sovrano; a sinistra sempre in basso, il vasto cortile porticato e l'alto padiglione attiguo rappresentano due istituzioni destinate all'educazione degli ufficiali: l'Accademia Militare e la Cavallerizza. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

        THE VOIAGE AND TRAVAILE OF SIR JOHN MAUNDEVILE

      Printed [by William Bowyer] for J. Woodman, and D. Lyon, London 1725 - 235 x 146 mm (9 1/4 x 5 3/4"). 3 p.l. (additional title page tipped onto flyleaf), xvi, [8], 384, [8] pp. One of 350 copies (see below). Pleasing recent retrospective sprinkled calf, covers paneled in blind with blindstamped fleuron cornerpieces, raised bands decorated in blind, head and tail panels with blindstamped floral ornament, red morocco label, new endpapers. Title printed in red and black. A Large Paper Copy. Additional title page printed in red and black with 19th century ownership signature of A. J. O'Dell; other title page with ink signature of Josh[ua] Winter and front flyleaf with Winter's thoughts on the author, dated 1746 (see below); occasional ink marginalia in Winter's hand. Cox I, 319; Lowndes II, 1463; ESTC T-100822; Maslen & Lancaster, "Bowyer Ledgers," 1096. Front flyleaves with faint dampstain along head and fore edges, text with margins faintly browned, isolated minor stains, foxing, corner creases, and other trivial imperfections, but an excellent copy--very smooth, clean, and fresh internally, with commodious margins, and with the well-executed sympathetic binding unworn. This is a tall, pleasing copy of a famous book, offered here in a particularly important and sought-after edition. First appearing as an anonymous manuscript in France in about 1357, the work exists in many forms: there are at least 22 versions known from some 250 surviving manuscripts, and the account was printed at least 20 times in the 15th century (in Latin, French, German, and Italian, as well as once each by Pynson and Wynkyn de Worde). The work continued to appear with regularity in English during the 16th and 17th centuries, but ours is said by Cox to be the "completest edition up to date," and it is characterized by Lowndes as "the best English edition." Cox tells us that although "long accepted as an authentic and valuable record of travel," it is now known to be a fabrication. He gave the credit for authorship to "one Jehan d'Oultremeuse, a citizen of Liege," but Britannica states that d'Oultremeuse was merely the executor of the estate of the real author, Liege physician Jean de Bourgogne, who confessed the deception to d'Oultremeuse on his deathbed. The DNB, however, speculates that the author was likely to have been a monk, "perhaps the librarian of his house," someone with access to a large library and someone who had read the accounts written by real travellers describing exotic places he himself had never visited. Regardless of its origin, the work was for centuries a respected travel reference used by explorers, including Christopher Columbus, and it continues to provide fascinating reading as a description of the known world in the 14th century. We know that the 1725 edition was strictly limited: K. I. D. Maslen and John Lancaster found it listed in the records of London printer William Bowyer, who noted that he printed 350 copies. Our particular copy has an especially strong connection with the past because of the annotations of its early (probably original) owner, the Reverend Joshua Winter of All Saints Church in Derby. A leading intellectual and member of the Derby Philosophical Society, Winter says, among other things, in his marginal notes that Addison's characterization of this work as the product of "a meer [sic] ignorant absurd Romancer" is misguided, and that it is rather "the work of a sober, sensible man.".
