        THE VOIAGE AND TRAVAILE OF SIR JOHN MAUNDEVILE

      London: Printed [by William Bowyer] for J. Woodman, and D. Lyon, 1725. One of 350 copies (see below) . Hardcover. 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.".

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

      Nuremburg: Homann, Johann Baptist. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 19.25" x 22.75". 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.

        STAMPA 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.

        STAMPA VALENTINI PROSPECTUS VERSUS ERIDANUM

      A LA HAYE, R. C. ALBERTS, 1725 (mm 479 x 634 più marg.)Incisione originale all'acquaforte su matrice di rame. All'angolo inferiore sinistro, cartiglio con titolo, sormontato dagli stemmi affiancati del duca di Savoia e di Maria Cristina di Francia, circondati dal Collare dell'Annunziata e timbrati da corona reale; sotto la linea marginale inferiore, a destra, cifra XXII. La bella veduta dall'alto del castello del Valentino è tratta dalla riedizione del 1725 della poderosa opera dal titolo Theatrum Statuum Regiæ Celsitudinis Sabaudiæ Ducis, pubblicata dopo una lunga gestazione ad Amsterdam apud Haeredes Iohannis Blaeu nel 1682. Le tavole che impreziosiscono quest'opera descrittiva e celebrativa furono disegnate da artisti e ingegneri operosi presso la corte ducale, e poi tradotti su lastra da artefici nordeuropei. Il disegno per il foglio in esame, tracciato nel 1668, spetta a G. T. Borgonio, che fu versatile calligrafo, miniatore, blasonatore, e fornì modelli per gli incisori con immagini di carattere cartografico, vedutistico e di genealogia. Della "delitia" sabauda del Valentino, eretta alle porte di Torino e conclusa nella prima metà del Seicento per ospitare la prima "Madama Reale" Maria Cristina di Francia, è qui rappresentato il prospetto sul Po. La veduta non rispecchia l'edificio effettivemente costruito e attuale sede della facoltà di Architettura: mai furono realizzati i cortili laterali, né il porticato semicircolare e l'ingresso che chiudono la "corte d'onore". Un particolare interessante è l'imbarcazione del duca che solca le acque del fiume. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo, dai discreti margini.

Entro la cornice fogliata, in alto a sinistra, stemma della principessa Ludovica di Savoia sostenuto da putti; all'angolo superiore destro, drappo retto da altri due putti con titolo. La tavola è tratta dalla penultima edizione di una monumentale descrizione dei possedimenti sabaudi 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 della villa fatta costruire sulla collina torinese, ad inizio del Seicento, dal cardinal Maurizio di Savoia, figlio cadetto di Carlo Emanuele I. Il prelato aveva fatto erigere l'edificio, circondato da giardini all'italiana con fontane e grotte artificiali, seguendo i modelli delle ville romane e genovesi. Per motivi soprattutto politici Maurizio, quasi cinquantenne, sposò la propria nipote adolescente Ludovica, che gli sopravvisse ed ereditò la residenza. Oggi la costruzione è nota come Villa della Regina. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

L'immagine raffigura una veduta della "vigna" fatta costruire, sulla riva del Po opposta a quella su cui sorge il castello del Valentino, per ordine della reggente Maria Cristina di Francia detta "Madama Reale". Il complesso di costruzioni e giardini (progettato intorno al 1648 da padre Andrea Costaguta) non fu realizzato che in minima parte nel corso del Seicento; la parte edificata, assai rimaneggiata successivamente, è oggi nota come Villa Abegg.

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.

        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..

      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.

        An Abridgment of the Common Law: Being a Collection of the

      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.
