        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.

      sp;- London - Innys8 by 5; [viii]xxxvi[xiv]472 pp. 1725 - A thorough defence of the posited importance of reason and epistemology in theology. Phillips Gretton (c1678-1746) was a graduate Trinity College, Cambridge, whence he gained a fellowship in 1700. In the same year he gained two livings in Essex, and was awarded a D. D. from Trinity in 1732. He wasa critic of Samuel Clarke's a priori argument for the existence of God, although Clarke did not consider his criticism strong enough to warrant a response. In the Vindications, he discusses thesupremacy of the doctrine of reason, scripture and tradition, claims about the infallibility of the church, Catholicism, the status of the doctrine of the Church of England, the Greek and Eastern churches and their relationship toRome, theorigins of theReformation, and Papal usurpations and claims to supremacy. Condition: Externally, bound in old pannelled calf. Spine chipped with label missing. Joints cracked and corners slightly worn. Internally, firmly bound. Armorial bookplate of William Herrick and bookplate of Professor David Arthur Pailin on front pastedown; edge of leaves burnished; engraved headpieces and tailpieces; errata on p. xiv]; a little foxing on final page.

        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.

Vol. II - engraved frontispiece of Charleton and one engraved plate. Vol. III - one woodcut and ten engravings rebound to period in full brown morocco, ruled, decorated and lettered in gilt, new marbled endpapers & Inigo Jones was an (1573-1652) English architect whose father was a clothworker in the neighbourhood of St. Paul's in London, and raised a Catholic. Little is known of the first thirty years of his life. Towards the end of the sixteenth century he went to Italy and lived there for many years, principally in Venice. Christian IV, King of Denmark, induced him to leave Italy and accept an appointment at the Danish Court. Buildings are named both in Italy and Denmark as having been designed by Jones, but seemingly without proof. He returned to England in 1601, and for some time was engaged in designing the costly scenery and machinery of the court masques. About 1614 he again went to Italy and amongst other things studied the style of Renaissance architecture known as Palladian. On his return to England he was appointed surveyor to the king. Jones designed the queen's house, Greenwich, the banqueting house, Whitehall, St. Paul's church and the piazza of Covent Garden (burnt to the ground 1795), and many other buildings. Of his genius as an architect there can be no question, nor can there be any as to his vast influence on the course of architecture in England; but as to the quality of his work and the effect of his influence, opinions differ very widely. His theory of architecture was that "it should be solid, proportional according to the rules, masculine and unaffected". Much of his work, however, is classed as theatrical and his designs were never truly classical. & & & That Stonehenge was a Roman circular temple in Tuscan order dedicated to Coelum, the god of the heavens, was Inigo Jones's response to King James I's inquiry (1620), and appeared in a posthumous publication (1655) by John Webb, which drew extensively from mythology, history, and astrology. Jones's Stonehenge interpretation was an important part of his grand vision Coelum Britannicum, a congratulatory symbolism for the monarch, which drew a macro- and microcosm parallel between the heavens and Britain. This particular symbolism was favored by the architect for a number of reasons: it presented a specific geometrical scheme and therefore turned immediately into an architectural form; and as a consequence it let the architect take an ideal position in relation to the monarch, that is, the supplier of his wisdom. It appeared in other designs by the architect and arguably in works by others under his influence. - Rumiko Handa, "Coelum Brittanicum: Inigo Jones and Symbolic Geometry", pp. 109-126 in Nexus IV: Architecture and Mathematics [Wing J954. Lownes 1225. Fowler 159].

        Totius Neobelgii nova et accuratissima Tabula

      Amsterdam: Ottens Brothers, 1725. A MAP OF NEW ENGLAND CONTAINING THE FAMOUS "RESTITUTIO" VIEW Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: plate size 181/2" x 213/4" Reference: Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 476-477. This map is one of five that closely follows the Visscher Novii Belgii. It is a magnificent version of Hugo Allard's edition published by the Ottens brothers, after their purchase of Allard's plate in 1708, and shows the famous "Restitutio" view of New York. In 1664, the English successfully captured New Amsterdam and renamed it New York. The Dutch were entirely unable to rival the English, but for one brief episode between 1673 and 1674 when they recaptured the city and renamed it New Amsterdam. It was then that this updated version of Visscher's map was first engraved replacing the inset view of New York with what became dubbed the "Restituto" view. The inset celebrated the 'restoration' of New Amsterdam to Holland, in August 1673, by the fleet under the command of Cornelius Evertsen. The figure on the pedestal is holding a laurel of victory, while the updated glimpse at the southern tip of Manhattan shows a city that has grown significantly, and is a triumphant indication of Dutch pride in its recapture. Unlike the Visscher view, here the town is depicted from the east. On the right-hand side of the view is part of the wall that became Wall Street, with its guardhouse and gate. To its right are new settlements that were just beginning to crop up north of the wall. This view actually shows the Dutch capture of the town in progress, with soldiers marching along the quay and a cannon firing from the fort. Despite the fact that the city was returned to the British under the Treaty of Breda the following year, this map with the "Restitutio" view continued to be published for almost a century by Dutch mapmakers, perhaps for reasons of nostalgic national pride. By this time, Dutch overseas power was waning, particularly in America. This view, with its grandiose presentation of momentary triumph, played to the need for some affirmation of Dutch colonial power even in the face of overwhelming evidence to its demise.. Book.

Soprattutto in quest?ultima sono riportate notizie sull?opera di cui viene fatta un?analisi quasi filologica in una serie di paragrafi, tra i quali si possono segnalare quello sulle antiche edizioni dell?opera che vide la luce a Perugia nel 1481 coi tipi di Stefano Arns, quello sull?inizio della stampa a Foligno e Perugia, quelli dedicati all?autore dell?opera e alla sua identificazione con il Frezzi. Federico Frezzi, nacque alla metà del XIV secolo a Foligno e dopo essere entrato fra i Domenicani, professore di Teologia a Firenze, Pisa e Bologna, venne nominato Vescovo di Foligno nel 1403. Morì a Costanza in Germania nel 1416 durante i lavori del Concilio che doveva concludere lo scisma d?occidente, al quale partecipava. L?opera narra in quattro libri il viaggio dell?autore attraverso quattro regni - da cui il titolo ? quello dell?Amore, quello di Satana, dei Vizi e delle Virtù. Il tutto nella celebrazione dei Trinci sotto la cui signoria era in quel momento Foligno. Ai Trinci è dedicato il capitolo XVIII del I libro Dove si tratta del reggimento della Casa de?Trinci, e della Città di Foligno, tanto da far risalire la casata ad un mitico Tros che da Troia sarebbe giunto nella terra fra Topino e Timia e che avrebbe fondato un?altra Troia, un luogo chiamato or Trieve. Buona edizione dedicata a Papa Benedetto XIII dagli Accademici Rinvigoriti di Foligno di quest?opera unanimemente considerato la migliore imitazione della Divina Commedia. Pompeo Campana iniziò la sua attività di tipografo nel 1705 ed appena tre anni dopo venne riconosciuto come ?stampatore pubblico? e quindi nel 1728 aggiunse anche l?indicazione di Stamperia Camerale. Alla sua morte nel 1743 l?attività della tipografia continuò fino al 1781, data dell?ultima pubblicazione edita a Foligno. Tra la sua produzione oltra al primo lunario conosciuto col titolo di Barbanera del 1762, anche gli Avvisi che, iniziati nel 1706, divennero nel 1776 la Gazzetta Universale che continuò ad essere edita a Foligno fino al 1783. Continuò ad essere poi edita sempre colsuo nome ad Asisi da Ottavio Sgariglia che del Campana aveva sposato una figlia. Cecchini G., Mostra dell?arte della stampa umbra, 1943, p. 30, n. 97.
