        REGIÆ VENATIONIS ÆDIUM PROSPECTUS.

      A LA HAYE, R. C. ALBERTS, 1725 (mm 465 x 585 ca. più marg.) - Incisione originale eseguita all' acquaforte su matrice di rame da un ignoto artefice nordeuropeo, su disegno eseguito nel 1670 da Giovanni Tommaso Borgonio ( Perinaldo 1628 ca. - Torino 1691 ). Sotto la linea marginale superiore, titolo entro cartiglio, centrato da arma sabauda tra figure allegoriche e putti con emblemi della caccia; all'angolo inferiore destro, numero XXXI; sotto la parte figurata, didascalie. La tavola è tratta dalla penultima edizione di una monumentale descrizione dei possedimenti sabaudi, siti al di qua e al di là delle Alpi: l'opera fu impressa la prima volta ad Amsterdam, presso gli eredi di I. Blaeu, nel 1682, sotto il titolo di Theatrum Statuum Regiæ Celsitudinis Sabaudiæ Ducis [.]. L'immagine raffigura una veduta prospettica, a volo d'uccello, della Venaria Reale: tale residenza sabauda venne eretta da Carlo Emanuele II su progetti dell'architetto di corte Amedeo di Castellamonte, come sede ducale durante le battute di caccia. La tavola in esame rappresenta la via principale della cittadina, che si allarga in un'affollata piazza a doppia esedra e conduce all'imponente castello, oltre il quale si estende un vasto parco alla francese. Tutte le decorazioni della residenza erano dedicate a Diana Trionfatrice, allegoria politica della duchessa madre Cristina di Francia. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo. 0

        Accurater Grundriss und Prospect der Weltberuhmten Hollandischen Haupt und Handels-stadt Amsterdam

      Homann, Johann Baptist, Nuremburg - This stunning plan of Amsterdam, published circa 1725, celebrates the capital of the Netherlands at the peak of its economic and military power. Hand coloring highlights the semi-circular shape of the city, which pivots around the trade center of the Amstel River. Over 300 prominent locations are labeled throughout the map in accordance with keys in the upper corners. Gardens and windmills are also drawn. Below the plan, multitudes of ships are rendered with fine detail in the harbor, illustrating the city's bustling trade. This effect is furthered by the panoramic view at the bottom of the map, which looks onto the city's waterfront from the sea. The view is set off with a frame that is adorned on the sides with the city's coats of arms. It is also topped with a cartouche featuring the city's arms sitting on a throne, surrounded by cherubs and books. Books on the left list the trading partners of the Dutch East India company, and books on the right name the Dutch colonies, including New Amsterdam, Curacao and Brasilia, below the logo of the Dutch West India Company. The cartouche continues to the sides of the map with scenes of commerce, featuring people from around the New World bringing their goods. Of particular interest is a tobacco rope made from twisted tobacco leaves, which points to the growing prominence of the tobacco trade. This map was printed from the Homann's original by his heirs. As was customary for Homann's maps and other Dutch maps of the mid-1800s, the plan has been colored and the cartouche and view left uncolored. It is in good condition with very minor chips to the corners and some overall discoloration. Stain near the river in the upper right. Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) was a renowned German mapmaker of the late 17th and early 18th century who served as geographer to the Holy Roman Emperor. His business was carried on through the 18th century by the Homann Heirs, also prolific and popular mapmakers. Their continued success with maps such as this one proves the enduring value of Homann's work. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 19.25" x 22.75".

        An abridgment of the common law: being a collection of the principal cases argued and adjudged in the several courts of Westminster-Hall. The whole being digested in a clear and alphabetical method, under proper heads, with several divisions and numbers under each title, for the more ready finding any judgment or resolution of the law cases whereby the opinion and judgment of the courts may be seen in an exact series of time, and what alterations have been made in the law by subsequent statutes and judgments, brought down to the year 1725. By William Nelson, of the Middle Temple, Esq; Vol. I [II, III]

      London: In the Savoy: printed by E. and R. Nutt and R. Gosling (assigns of Edw. Sayer, Esq;) for R. Gosling at the Middle Temple Gate, W. Mears at the Lamb near Temple Bar, T. Ward in the Inner Temple Lane, and J. Hooke at the Flower de Luce against St. Dunstan's Church in Fleet-street. MDCCXXV. [1725] [Vols II & III:] MDCCXXVI. [1726] , 1725. Book. Very Good. Leather. 1st Edition. Description: 3 volumes, folio (14 × 9¼ in): [20], 706 p.; [14], 707-1304 p.; [12], 576, [112] p. Modern half-calf over marbled boards, stamped in blind. · Register: 2º: [pi]1 [A]² a-c² d1 B-4U^4 4X1; [pi]1 a-c² 4X^4(-4X1) 4Y-8C^4; [pi]1 a-b² c1 B-4D^4 4E-5I². · Condition: Faint dampstain in gutter of first volume; expert paper repairs to fore edge of initial leaf of the first volume and the lower corner of title-pages of second and third volumes, without loss of text; otherwise clean and bright. · Comments: Sole edition. The first leaf is an advertisement for volumes II & III, then in the press. Most writers have adopted the criticisms of Charles Viner, who in 1742 wrote in the preface to volume 13 of his Abridgment that Nelson was frequently mistaken in digesting of the cases, or that he added things that were not in the original, and that parts of it were transcribed (and not accurately) from Hughes' Abridgment (1660). Although Viner's strictures on Nelson are harsh, three things should be noted: first, Viner himself says that when Nelson's Abridgment first came out, he left off abridging what Nelson had done, so it cannot be that Nelson's work was so wretched as Viner suggests; second, Nelson published an abridged version of Lutwyche's Reports (omitting the entries) that contains extremely harsh criticisms of the judge's work, so it may well be Viner thought Nelson had earned calumny; third, Viner was, of course, hoping to sell subscriptions to his massive undertaking, so the deprecation of his most recently-published competition (considering Bacon's "Abridgment" as more encyclopedia than comprehensive digest) would seem a logical marketing tool. · References: Johnson 146 (7 copies); Worrall 3; Bridgman 227; Marvin 534; S&M 1:19(17); Cowley 213; Winfield 241; Holdsworth, HEL 5:377, 12:162; ESTC T82602..

        Die egyptischen grossen Offenbarungen, in sich begreifend die aufgefundenen Geheimnissbucher Mosis; oder des Juden Abraham von Worms Buch der wahren Praktik in der uralten gottlichen Magie... [Book of Abramelin]

      Koln am Rhein [Cologne]: Peter Hammer, 1725. [i.e. Stuttgart: Scheible, c.1850.]. SECOND EDITION, being a reprint of the 1725 original. Twelvemo bound in eights (145 x 94mm) pp. 420. Title spread over two leaves, printed in red and black. Bound in half black leather with marbled sides. Bookplate to front pastedown (P. Gawenda) and his name in ink to first blank. Upper joint splitting, though book remains fairly tight. Double page title splitting at gutter with a 3cm closed tear to lower edge, but no loss of text. Pages browned as usual with German books of this period, but not heavily. The Book of Abramelin ends at page 290, followed by a number of alchemical works including Paracelsus Geheimniss aller seiner Geheimnisse (reprint of the 1746 Frankfurt edition, after the 1686 first), a work titled: Arcanum Arcanorum seu Magisterium Philosophorum (text in Latin) among other short pieces. A French manuscript version of this work was the basis of MacGregor Mathers: The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin the Mage (1898), but Georg Dehn in his 'The Book of Abramelin (2006) has shown Mathers' version was incomplete, compared to the 1725 Peter Hammer original - a book that surprisingly appeared to be unknown to Mathers or other members of the Golden Dawn who between them had a vast collection of Esoteric material. The 1725 first edition is a legendary rarity, this 19th Century reprint seems just as difficult to find.

      1725. Nelson, William [b. 1653]. An Abridgment of the Common Law: Being a Collection of the Principal Cases Argued and Adjudged in the Several Courts of Westminster-Hall. The Whole Being Digested in a Clear and Alphabetical Method, Under Proper Heads, With Several Divisions and Numbers Under Each Title, For the More Ready Finding and Judgment or Resolution of the Law Cases. Whereby the Opinion and Judgment of the Courts May be Seen in an Exact Series of Time, And What Alterations Have Been Made in the Law by Subsequent Statutes and Judgments, Brought Down to the Year 1725. [London]: Printed by E. and R. Nutt and R. Gosling, 1725-26. Three volumes. Folio (13-3/4" x 9"). Later three-quarter calf over textured cloth, lettering pieces and rules to spines, endpapers renewed. (Volume 1, bound at a later date, is a very close match, but not exact.) Light rubbing and a few minor scuffs to extremities. Faint dampstaining, dampspotting and early owner annotations and signatures to preliminaries, interiors otherwise fresh. * Only edition. Nelson intended this work to serve the needs of the student and lawyer, but he attempted to abridge cases with such "clearness and perspicuity" that they could be understood by the "common reader" (Preface). He assumed it would be used in conjunction with the abridgments of Brooke and Fitzherbert, so he did not include cases that are in those two works. Nelson was a versatile and gifted legal writer. In addition to his abridgment he published a notable JP Manual, treatises on forest law and evidence and editions of Dalton's Countrey Justice, Blount's Nomo Lexicon and Manwood's Laws of the Forest.

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.

      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.

        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.
