        XII Sonatas in three Parts Six of which are for two Violins and a Bass three for two German flutes and three for a Hautboy & common Flute with a Bass for the Violoncello and a Thorough Bass for the Harpsicord... Opera Secunda. [Parts]

      London: Walsh... Hare. [ca. 1725]. 3 volumes. Folio. Contemporary mid-tan calf-backed marbled boards. Violin/Flute I: 2ff. (title, dedication to Prince John Duke of Rutland), [i] (blank), 24 pp. & Violin/Oboe/Flute II: 1f. (title), [i] (blank), 24 pp. & Basso Continuo: 1f. (title), [i] (blank), 24 pp. & & From the collection of André Meyer (1884-1974), with his stamp to endpapers of each volume. & & Bindings slightly worn and rubbed; Violin I part with small modern paper label to upper. Slightly worn; occasional minor defects; worming to upper outer blank margins of second violin part. . First Edition. Priestman x, i. Smith 958. Not in BUC. RISM L2725. & & Often confused with Jean-Baptiste Loeillet ('Loeillet le Gant'), John Loeillet "settled in London in about 1705, where his surname was often rendered more or less phonetically as ‘Lullie’ or ‘Lully’, and he anglicized his first name to John. He is mentioned in 1707 as a member of the Drury Lane orchestra, and a year or two later he appears as principal oboist (and flautist) in Heidegger’s list of the opera band at the Queen’s Theatre, Haymarket... Loeillet became a celebrated master and teacher of the harpsichord. There is a tradition, which may well be true, that he was chiefly responsible for introducing the transverse flute as a fashionable instrument in England... His instrumental sonatas fall into the sonata da chiesa pattern, usually comprising a slow first movement in common time, a fast alla breve fugal movement (often with a bass of running quavers), a sarabande-like slow movement requiring much ornamentation, and a lightweight gigue." Alec Skempton and Lucy Robinson in Grove online& & An elegantly-printed collection.

        Geographica nova ex Oriente ... Mare Caspium / Kamtzadaliam seu Terram Jedso

      Nuremberg, c. 1725. Map. Copper engraving, 49.5 x 58 cms, two maps on one sheet (the Caspian Sea and Kamchatka), original hand colour, small stain bottom right,blank verso. Russian cossacks took possession of Kamchatka in 1697. There they encountered a shipwrecked Japanese sailor from Osaka who explained that Japan was not far away, and that the sea between was strewn with islands. A map based on this account together with a map of the Caspian Sea was sent by Peter the Great to Paris and came into the hands of Homann, who published both new maps on one sheet, hence the general title covering two seemingly unrelated maps - it was simply new information from the east.

        Ductum Salivalem Novum, per Glandulas Maxillares, sublinguales, Linguamque excurrentem &c. (...) submittunt Praeses Johannes Georgius du Vernoi (...) et Respondens Albertus Haller, Helveto-Bernas

      Tubingen: Josephi Sigmundi, 1725. First edition. Small quarto (8-1/4" x 6-1/2"); 22, (1)p, folding plate. From the library of Henry Sigerist, with his hand-stamps to title page recto and verso. Removed; lacking cover wraps; a few leaves (including plate leaf) neatly separated from binding at spine. Faint scattered foxing, else quite clean and fresh internally.& & The first appearance in print of "one of the most imposing figures in all medical history" (Garrison p. 317). Von Haller's response essay, written before his 17th birthday, opposes Coschwitz's contention that the lingual vein is a salivary duct. Haller would extend this polemic in his own inaugural dissertation, published in 1727, 'Experimenta et Dubia circa Ductum Salivalem Novum Coschwizianum;' in which he provided a clear refutation of Coschwitz's discovery, in the process advancing our knowledge of the lymphatic system, which at this time was poorly understood. & & Haller would go on to become the master physiologist of his time, creating in his Elementa Physiologiae "the first great modern treatise on Physiology" (Osler). Of the present work, OCLC locates only three copies (NY Acad. Med.; Harvard; & Swiss Nat. Lib.). None at auction in at least 25 years.

        The Works of Shakespear. In Six Volumes. Collated and Corrected by the former Editions, By Mr. Pope. [The Seventh Volume . The Whole Revis'd and Corrected, with a Preface, by Dr. Sewell.]

      London: for Jacob Tonson, [vol. VII by J. Darby, for A. Bettesworth, F. Fayram, W. Mears, J. Pemberton, J. Hooke, C. Rivington, F. Clay, J. Batley, E. Symon,] 1725 - Together 7 volumes, quarto (274 × 220 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, boards ruled in gilt with a three-line fillet, fleurons at corners, neatly rebacked in closely matching brown morocco, relined, corners repaired. Some occasional light spotting or browning, a few pencil marginal strokes, a very good set. Frontispiece engraved portrait of Shakespeare, engraved plate of the Shakespeare monument, incorporating a portrait bust; first title printed in red and black, engraved head- and tailpieces, decorated initials. Armorial bookplates of Patricia Cottenham (Peter Cottenham is listed among the subscribers). First edition, the first collected edition in quarto, only the second modern edition of Shakespeare, intended by Pope to remedy what he (though he had been Rowe's friend) perceived as the deficiencies of Rowe's 1709 edition. After the four Folios and two Rowe editions, this is the seventh edition overall. Pope had been working simultaneously on this and his celebrated translation of Homer, published the same year, for the past few years, and Tonson published them both in sumptuous quarto format, handsomely printed and decorated. Johnson states that Pope's remuneration for the Shakespeare was £217.12s, and that 750 copies were printed, although 140 were left unsold. The first volume is dated 1725, the others 1723, suggesting that the first volume was printed last: certainly Tonson did not send Pope a proof of his Preface until 23 December 1724. As with Rowe, Pope's edition covered only the plays; the supplementary volume of Shakespeare's poems with a preface by George Sewell was published in 1725, but neither Tonson nor Pope had any part in it. Pope's edition silently "regularised" Shakespeare's metre and rewrote his verse in several places. Lewis Theobald and other scholars soon attacked it, incurring Pope's wrath and inspiring the first version of The Dunciad. Although his editorial practices have generally been judged as falling short of the very highest standards of contemporary scholarship, many of Pope's emendations survive and his Preface, printed here for the first time, remains a notable critical essay. His revision of Rowe's life of Shakespeare is also considered valuable. Ford, Shakespeare 1700?1740, pp. 19?21; Griffith 149; Jaggard, p. 498.

        Belgii pars Septentrionalis communis nomine vulga Hollandia nuncupata Continenes Statum Potentissimæ Batavorum Reipublicæ seu Provincias VII. Foederatas

      Nuremberg: Homann, c. 1725. Engraved with attractive later colour, excellent impression. Small repair to bottom margin, otherwise excellent condition. 19 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches. 20 5/8 x 23 1/4 inches. A beautiful, sharp impression of a work that is both a map and a tribute to the young Dutch Republic Johann Baptist Homann, the leading German cartographer of the early 18th century, derived his style from the great Dutch mapmakers of the previous century, adding a Baroque flair, as demonstrated in this excellent map of the Dutch Republic and its colonies. Homann's admiration is most clearly shown in the cartouche in which the title is supported by mermaids and attended by putti bearing the Dutch Lion and a caduceus, here symbolising commerce and possibly peace (the Romans used it as a symbol of truce). Neptune himself stands to the left and points approvingly at the words "Batavorum Reipublicæ". Flanking the exuberant cartouche are maps of the Dutch spheres of influence: the New Netherlands with an oval view of Manhattan and the East Indies, with an oval view of Batavia on Java. In point of fact, the Dutch no longer ruled New Amsterdam, though they remained a strong element in the life of the city and along the Hudson River. The main topic of the map is of course the United Provinces themselves, here handsomely delineated and printed with period hand- colouring. The inset in the lower right is the southern continuation of Geldria. All in all, this is an exceptionally good example of Homann's work and a fine celebration of Holland.

Hon flyttade 1708 till Østrupgaard på Fyn, där hon levde sina sista 28 år upptagen av litterära sysslor och energisk drift av sin jordegendom. 1716 stiftade hon det adliga "frøkenklostret" i Odense, till vilket hon skänkte sin värdefulla boksamling, som till största delen bestod av äldre danska handskrifter och tryckta böcker samt tysk teologi, inte minst uppbyggelselitteratur. Bland handskrifterna finns en viktig samling folkvisor och bland böckerna många av de allra första danska trycken, varav ett antal i de enda bevarade exemplaren. Föreliggande katalog förtecknar de danska trycken. Boksamlingen är det äldsta bevarade danska privatbiblioteket och sannolikt ett av de äldsta bevarade i världen samlat av en kvinna

        Bibliothecae Bridgesianae Catalogus: or, a Catalogue of the Entire Library of John Bridges, Late of Lincolns-Inn, Esq; Consisting of Above 4000 Books and Manuscripts in all Languages and Faculties; particularly in Classics and History; and especially the History and Antiquities of Great-Britain and Ireland:

      which will begin to be sold by Auction on Monday the seventh Day of February 1725/6, at his Chambers in Lincolns-Inn, No 6. Engraved allegorical frontis (slightly cropped at outer margin). 3 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 199 pp. 8vo, attractive blue morocco-backed boards, spine lettered in gilt. London: Printed by J. Tonson & J. Watts, 1725/26. The English issue of the sale catalogue of the library of John Bridges (1666-1724), historian of Northamptonshire. Bridges left his fine library to his two brothers, who prepared an inventory catalogue in 1725 for sale. Their efforts were apparently fruitless as the books were sent to auction before the year was out. There are two issues of the present auction catalogue: the English issue with the title in English and a frontispiece, and a second issue with two title-pages, one in Latin and another in French. The continental issue was prepared in order to attract bids from dealers and collectors from Europe. It is generally not recognized that attempts were made by English auctioneers in the early 18th century to generate business from the Continent. Dibdin called Bridges "a notorious book-collector." The library contained over 4000 books and MSS. It was notably rich in the history and antiquities of Great Britain and Ireland. There was a scandal surrounding the sale as Bridges's two brothers were quite obviously bidding up the books. Humphrey Wanley, who was a buyer at the sale for Robert Harley's library, described the sale as "very knavish." A very good and crisp copy. ❧ D.N.B., II, pp. 1229-30-"the catalogue of his library was long retained as valuable by curious collectors." Fletcher, English Book Collectors, pp. 156-58. See Pollard & Ehrman, p. 212, Table XXV, & no. 222 for the inventory catalogue of earlier in the same year. Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 193 & 206. .

        The West Front of Cliefden House

      London: Published by Colen Campbell, 1725. Engraved by Henry Hulsbergh. On laid paper. Two repaired tears in the bottom margin, well outside image. 9 7/8 x 19 1/2 inches. 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. 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.

        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..

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.

      Génova, por Matheo Garvizza, s.a. (hacia 1735). Dos volúmenes en 4to.; 3 hs., 349 pp. + 336 pp. Encuadernación uniforme en piel, de la época. Rara edición, impresa probablemente en Sevilla por los genoveses afectos a la causa borbónica, «corregida de los innumerables errores que padecen las otras» y especialmente cuidada en lo que se refiere a la distribución de «fidelidades» erróneas en las anteriores, a partir de la aparición del texto en 1725, generadora de exacerbadas reacciones de una parte de la nobleza aludida y que condujeron a Felipe V al ecuánime gesto de mandarlas retirar.
