Molijn-- Pieter de
GROOT(S) GEZICHT OP HAARLEM "HAER-LEM"? kopergravure vervaardigd door Jan van de Velde naar een tekening van Pieter de Molijn. Uitgegeven te Amsterdam door Reinier en Joshua Ottens tussen 1726-1766. De gravure bestaat uit 3 aaneengeplakte bladen; tesamen 41 x 169,2 cm. Later met de hand gekleurd. Signaturen midden onder: Petrus Molineus Inv. ; Johannes Veldius sculp. ; R.& I.Ottens Excud.Amst:. De eerste druk (staat) verscheen in 1621, uitgegeven te Haarlem door David van Horenbeeck. Dit is de tweede druk. Hier zien we Haarlem vanuit het noorden met centraal de Grote of St.-Bavokerk en op de voorgrond de Kleverlaan. Geheel links de ru?ne van kasteel Huis ter Kleef waarnaast een boerderij aan Het Zieken (de tegenwoordige Kennemerstraat) en het torentje van het voormalig Leproos-, Pest- en Dolhuis (thans Museum Het Dolhuys). Geheel rechts een van de molens aan de Zijlweg. In composities van Pieter de Molijn (London 1595-1661 Haarlem) komen de figuren altijd sterk naar voren en steken van de omgeving af. Op de voorgrond links zien we hier een aantal mannen en koeien. Op de Kleverlaan een aantal paard-en-wagens, ruiters en wandelaars. In het midden een tekenaar die het Huis ter Kleef schetst, vermoedelijk is dit De Molijn zelf die zich een plek in deze voorstelling gunde. Hollandse landschapsschilderkunst uit de 17de eeuw speelde zich vooral af rond Haarlem. Het burgerlijke buitenvermaak, zoals het rondrijden in "?speelwagens', het bezoek aan plattelandsherbergen, dorpskermissen en het wandelen, was daarbij een favoriet onderwerp. In het relatief veilige Hollandse platteland we … [Click Below for Full Description]

1726. Notre blog : https://librairie-trois-plumes.blogspot.fr/ Notre mail : benoit@troisplumes.fr R.P. Dom Jacques Alexandre, bénédictin de la Congrégation de Saint Maur, Traité du Flux et Reflux de la mer, où l'on explique d'une manière nouvelle & simple, la nature, les causes, & les particularitez de ce Phénomène ; & qui a remporté le prix au jugement de l'Académie de Bourdeaux, le premier May 1726. Paris, Babuty, 1726. In-12, XIV-[8]-176-5p & 6 planches dépliantes. Edition originale et unique de ce petit ouvrage intéressant malgré une hypothèse bizarre (dixit Jérôme de La Lande, Traité du flux et du reflux de la mer, 1781), qu'Alexandre a emprunté à Jean-Baptiste Baliani : la Terre tournerait autour de la Lune en un mois. La Lande considère cette hypothèse frivole, comme d'autres, et il ne faut donc pas y prêter attention. Néanmoins, monsieur de Mairan a pris la peine de la réfuter. Toutefois, cet ouvrage a un réel intérêt scientifique puisque malgré l'hypothèse frivole, l'ouvrage obtint un prix de l'Académie de Bordeaux. L'ouvrage contient 6 planches dépliantes dont 2 ont des parties mobiles liées par un petit fil et une troisième planche est en deux parties. L'ouvrage est complet de toutes ses planches et parties mobiles. Alexandre (1653-1734) est aussi l'auteur d'un ouvrage estimé sur l'horlogerie. Reliure pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre maroquin. Epidermures, manques aux coiffes, pièce de titre moderne, gardes renouvelées, papier uniformément jauni avec petite mouillure marginale. Ouvrage rare, complet.

1726. For sale is a very important piece of Americana. Important for the history of tax exemptions for religious groups in America. This was done before the creation of the U.S. when we were colonies to Great Britain. These exemptions really set the precedent for what was to come in the new country. "An Act to exempt person commonly called Anabaptists and Quakers from being taxed for and towards the support of Ministers" Boston 1728, Printed by Bartholomew Green. 12 pages, 401-412, Unbound, Part of "Acts and Laws of the General Court of Massachusetts-Bay, for May, 1728". Has tear that has been repaired, otherwise Good Condition. See pictures. This is the first tax exemption of any kind to Baptist and Quakers in the American colonies. This tax exemption was just limited to 5 miles from the church. This meant that Baptist and Quakers no longer had to pay taxes in support of the Congregational Churches within 5 miles of the church. The first full tax exemption for Baptist and Quakers came in 1732. 11 copies located on OCLC. Very Rare. I sold this exact same piece to a collector in Texas for $3K. He wanted to trade it for another one done in 1732. [Attributes: First Edition]

NEW YORK. LAWS
1726. NEW YORK. LAWS. Acts of Assembly Passed in the Province of New-York, from 1691, to 1725. New York: William Bradford, 1726. Fol. [10], 124 [i.e., 128], 121-252, 261-319 p. Later half morocco, worn and scuffed at the entremities. Eight leaves in neat facsimile: title, the four-leaf index, leaves 2K1-2, and leaf 23V2. Leaves 2E2-G2 supplied from another copy. Library stamp on pastedown and title, occasional dampstaining, and the foxing and moderate browning inherent in American books of this date. Withal, an entirely respectable copy of a very rare book. While the earliest ownership signature has been lined through and is difficult to decipher, later signatures are Henry Sands 1800, Caleb S. Riggs, and Saml. R. Betts 1827. The very rare 1726 "Bradford" compilation of the earliest laws of New York, printed by New York's, and the Middle Colonies', first printer. Eight leaves are in neat facsimile and five leaves were long ago supplied from another copy, but otherwise this is a very satisfactory copy. Only two other copies have been sold at auction in the last forty years. Law compilations of this date from the Middle Colonies are extremely rare, and one must take what one can find.

1726. Rarissimo testo storico sulla vita di Luigi IX detto il Santo LO CEDO A FORTE SCONTO SULLE VALUTAZIONI ANTIQUARIE biografia, curata dal barnabita Don Gabriele Maria Valenzuela, fu stampata a Roma dalla Stamperia de' Rossi nel 1726. Sin dal primo esame del tomo ci si rende conto di essere di fronte ad una rara e pregiata opera, vuoi per la rilegatura importante realizzata in piena pergamena, vuoi per i tipi importanti e di grande dimensione, o per il taglio decorato a spruzzo. Ma la vera particolarità di quest'opera sono le acqueforti all'interno, di mirabile fattura, i capilettera riccamente ornati, le vignette di inizio capitolo e i cul de lampe dal chiaro sapore barocco che non si limitano a volute floreali, ma ritraggono anche putti che recano il giglio capetingio che si susseguono a grottesche e chiusure di alto valore artistico. Luigi IX di Francia, divenuto San Ludovico, è stato un Re di Francia della dinastia dei Capetingi. Salito al trono giovanissimo a seguito della morte improvvisa del padre, mosse i primi passi nella reggenza del trono di Francia sotto la guida della madre Bianca di Castiglia. Il suo regno fu un regno sostanzialmente di pace, grazie ai rapporti distesi con l'Inghilterra, acerrima nemica del trono di Francia. La sua paersona fu caratterizzta da una profonda religiosità, tanto che diede il via a ben due crociate, entrambe partite da Aigues Mortes, dove una statua lo ricorda. Deceduto a Tunisi durante la seconda sua Crociata a seguito di un grave attacco di dissenteria ovuto alla mancanza di acqua potabile, attorno alle sue spoglie si dice che … [Click Below for Full Description]

SWIFT, Jonathan
London: Benjamin Motte, 1726. Two volumes, octavo, with four maps, two plans and engraved frontispiece portrait (second state); panelled calf, sides bordered and decorated in gilt and blind, spines ornately panelled in gilt with triple lettering pieces, all edges gilt, by Morrell. One of the greatest of all works of English literature. This is a particularly attractive set of the first edition of Gulliver's Travels, the first volume in Teerink's state 'A' and the second state 'AA': that is, the first and second states of the three original printings of the first edition. A further state ('B') followed. As Teerink shows, although the words "Second Edition" appear on the title-page of the second volume, this was not followed in the later state 'B' and the subsequent edition of 1727 became the real "second edition". "One of the most famous English books of all time - Gulliver's Travels - is a series of imaginary voyages partly set in Australia. The hero is made a cousin of William Dampier and in the very year (1699) when Dampier was exploring the north-west of Australia, Gulliver's ship is 'driven by a violent storm to the north-west of Van Diemen's Land'. With a latitude given as 32°2' south, the imaginary Lilliput, setting of the first of Gulliver's four voyages, is placed somewhere in South Australia... Gulliver's Travels is an essential starting point for any collection of fictitious voyages to Australia..." (Davidson). With its map of an imaginary 'South Australia' coast and obvious derivation from Dampier, this must be the greatest work of literature associated with Au … [Click Below for Full Description]

1726. Used with wear and tear. Benjamine Mote first printing 2nd impression. Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World. 1726. (Teerink AA). Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver.

Internally clean with occasional foxing, especially to end pages. Five engraved maps. The author's masterpiece and landmark in the early development of the novel. The first printing was published on 28 October and sold out within a week and was quickly followed by two further printings in 1726, which are subtly different to the first printing, though bibliographically distinct as shown by Teerink in his bibliography of Swift, and referred to as Teerink AA and B issues.

London: Benj[amin] Motte, 1726. London: Benj[amin] Motte,, 1726. Contemporary panelled calf 2 volumes, octavo (199 x 117 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, early 19th-century black morocco labels and gilt dates on spines. Housed in a dark brown quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver (first state), 4 maps and 2 plans, additional early 19th-century engraving after Stothard inserted into vol. I (showing Gulliver in Lilliput). Provenance: Robert Callaghan (ink name on title pages, dated 1732), and C. Fox (ink name to pastedown of vol. I and front free endpaper of vol. II, dated 1865). Clipping from The Times dated 9 July 1924, regarding a sale of a different copy, loosely inserted. Late 18th/early 19th-century manuscript addition of a verse by William Bowyer under the portrait frontispiece of Gulliver. Expert restoration at extremities, a few pages lightly creased, some faint staining at head of vol. I. An excellent copy, rarely found in such good condition in a contemporary binding. True first edition of Swift's masterpiece, Teerink's A edition, with the first state frontispiece. The first state frontispiece has the inscription beneath the portrait, which in the second state was placed around the portrait; a third state is a retouched version of the second. The strong elements of political satire perhaps intrigued the contemporary readership most, but the book holds a significant place in the evolution of science fiction, its significance alluded to in Edwin Lester Arnold's Lieut.

London: Benj[amin] Motte, 1726. 2 volumes, octavo (199 x 117 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, early 19th-century black morocco labels and gilt dates on spines. Housed in a dark brown quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Provenance: Robert Callaghan (ink name on title pages, dated 1732), and C. Fox (ink name to pastedown of vol. I and front free endpaper of vol. II, dated 1865). Clipping from The Times dated 9 July 1924, regarding a sale of a different copy, loosely inserted. Late 18th/early 19th-century manuscript addition of a verse by William Bowyer under the portrait frontispiece of Gulliver. Expert restoration at extremities, a few pages lightly creased, some faint staining at head of vol. I. An excellent copy, rarely found in such good condition in a contemporary binding. Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver (first state), 4 maps and 2 plans, additional early 19th-century engraving after Stothard inserted into vol. I (showing Gulliver in Lilliput). True first edition of Swift's masterpiece, Teerink's A edition, with the first state frontispiece. The first state frontispiece has the inscription beneath the portrait, which in the second state was placed around the portrait; a third state is a retouched version of the second. The strong elements of political satire perhaps intrigued the contemporary readership most, but the book holds a significant place in the evolution of science fiction, its significance alluded to in Edwin Lester Arnold's Lieut. Gullivar Jones: His Vacation (1905), also known as Gulliver of Mars, or the character of Gully (short for Gulli … [Click Below for Full Description]

Travels into several remote nations of the world. In four parts. By Lemuel Gulliver.London, Benjamin Motte, 1726. 4 parts in 2 volumes. 8vo. With an engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver, 5 engraved maps and one engraved plate. 19th-century gold-tooled calf, richly gold-tooled spines, gilt edges. VIII, [4], 148, [6], [149]-310; [6], 54, [8], [155]-353, [1 blank] pp. The so-called "B"-edition of Jonathan Swift's classic Gulliver's travels, published in the same year as the true first edition. The three 1726 editions are often grouped together as the first edition, as they precede the 1727-edition, which says "second edition" on the title-page. The best and most famous satire of modern Western politics, religion and culture in almost all its aspects (and a brief satire of Japan). It includes all four voyages (supposedly in the years 1699-1715): to Lilliput (a land of tiny and petty people who fit in the palm of Gulliver's hand); to Brobdingnag (a land of crude giants where he fits in the palm of their hands), to Laputa (a land in the air where bureaucrats pursue scholarship and culture with no regard for practical life: the fact that the name means "whore" in Spanish and Portuguese is probably no accident), Balnibarbi (which suffers under Laputan rule), Luggnagg (where people grow decrepit but never die), Glubbdubdrib (where Gulliver converses with ghosts of historical figures), and Japan (a satire of the real Japanese fumi-e test, where suspected Christians were asked to trample on an image of Jesus or Mary); and to the land of the Yahoos and Houyhnhnms (where intellige … [Click Below for Full Description]

SWIFT, Jonathan] GULLIVER, Lemuel
Benj. Motte, 1726. First edition, first printing (i.e. Teerink A). Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state, as usual, with vertical chain lines and the lettering around the oval frame. Two volumes (197 x 120mm), bound in contemporary calf with gilt ruled borders and gilt titles to the spine. Binding sometime neatly rebacked with some old repairs to the hinges and corners. Internally clean with occasional browning. An excellent, tall set of this landmark novel in contemporary state. Five engraved maps. The author's masterpiece and landmark in the early development of the novel. The first printing was published on 28 October and sold out within a week and was quickly followed by two further printings in 1726, which are subtly different to the first printing, though bibliographically distinct as shown by Teerink in his bibliography of Swift, and referred to as Teerink AA and B issues. The work was immediately hailed as a classic, "From the highest to the lowest, it is universally read, from the Cabinet-council to the Nursery" - John Gay "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond Temporary Fame" (PMM) Teerink 290; PMM 185 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Modern half red calf, gilt-lettered backstrips, gilt tops. A fine set with an armorial bookplate in each volume. § A very pleasant copy of a significant edition of Locke's great work, scarce in trade. Locke’s Essay “makes an epoch in the history of philosophy. He introduced the method, which became prevalent in England and France during the following century, of treating philosophical questions from the standpoint of psychology. Locke’s cautious but unsystematic account of the origin and nature of knowledge was developed by Condillac and others into a thoroughgoing materialistic sensationalism, and by Hume into complete philosophical scepticism. By Voltaire and others Locke was regarded as the initiator of commonsense rationalism in opposition to the authority of both ecclesiastical and philosophical dogmatism” (Palgrave).

"Abandon all hope, ye who enter here." ― Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy Dante's "Divine Comedy" is one of the most important and long-lasting works for literature. Versions and editions have been published regularly since the 15th-century. In 1602, Carlo Noci collected and organized the rhyme of 'Divine Comedy', citing each rhyme throughout each book of the original work in a 'dictionary-like' setting. This 1726 printing of Noci's 'Rimario' was published in Padova as part of the complete 'Divine Comedy'.

1726. Rarissimo testo storico sulla vita di Luigi IX detto il Santo LO CEDO A FORTE SCONTO SULLE VALUTAZIONI ANTIQUARIE biografia, curata dal barnabita Don Gabriele Maria Valenzuela, fu stampata a Roma dalla Stamperia de' Rossi nel 1726. Sin dal primo esame del tomo ci si rende conto di essere di fronte ad una rara e pregiata opera, vuoi per la rilegatura importante realizzata in piena pergamena, vuoi per i tipi importanti e di grande dimensione, o per il taglio decorato a spruzzo. Ma la vera particolarità di quest'opera sono le acqueforti all'interno, di mirabile fattura, i capilettera riccamente ornati, le vignette di inizio capitolo e i cul de lampe dal chiaro sapore barocco che non si limitano a volute floreali, ma ritraggono anche putti che recano il giglio capetingio che si susseguono a grottesche e chiusure di alto valore artistico. Luigi IX di Francia, divenuto San Ludovico, è stato un Re di Francia della dinastia dei Capetingi. Salito al trono giovanissimo a seguito della morte improvvisa del padre, mosse i primi passi nella reggenza del trono di Francia sotto la guida della madre Bianca di Castiglia. Il suo regno fu un regno sostanzialmente di pace, grazie ai rapporti distesi con l'Inghilterra, acerrima nemica del trono di Francia. La sua paersona fu caratterizzta da una profonda religiosità, tanto che diede il via a ben due crociate, entrambe partite da Aigues Mortes, dove una statua lo ricorda. Deceduto a Tunisi durante la seconda sua Crociata a seguito di un grave attacco di dissenteria ovuto alla mancanza di acqua potabile, attorno alle sue spoglie si dice che … [Click Below for Full Description]

SWIFT, Jonathan
Benjamin Motte, at the Middle-Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, London, 1726. Four parts in two volumes, octavo; portrait of Gulliver by John Sturt engraved by Robert Sheppard and six engraved plates, five of them maps, by H. Moll; a fine set in 19th-century polished calf gilt, spine gilt between raised bands, green lettering pieces, triple fillet border on sides, marbled endpapers with gilt dentelle borders, gilt edges; binding by Francis Bedford with his stamp. First edition, first issue (Teerink "A"), with the portrait in second state as is more usual. This is a fine copy of one of the greatest of all works of English (and travel) literature. From its first publication the success of Gulliver was immediate and sustained, its influence enormous. Gove knows of over one hundred eighteenth century editions and there have been countless since. Although it had its famous detractors (notably Samuel Johnson's famously dismissive 'When once you have thought of the big men and little men, it is very easy to do all the rest') it has become one of the best loved and most immediately recognizable works of fiction. No one was more surprised by this than Swift himself, who had said to Pope that the satire would never be published until 'a printer shall be found brave enough to venture his ears'. "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond Temporary Fame" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Gulliver is one of the most famous English books of all time, and also the greatest work of literature associated with Australia. It is a crucial work in the Imaginary Voyage tradition, particul … [Click Below for Full Description]

Haarlem panorama - naar Pieter de Molijn, 1726-1766
1726. GROOT(S) GEZICHT OP HAARLEM "HAER-LEM"' kopergravure vervaardigd door Jan van de Velde naar een tekening van Pieter de Molijn. Uitgegeven te Amsterdam door Reinier en Joshua Ottens tussen 1726-1766. De gravure bestaat uit 3 aaneengeplakte bladen; tesamen 41 x 169,2 cm. Later met de hand gekleurd. Signaturen midden onder: Petrus Molineus Inv. ; Johannes Veldius sculp. ; R.& I.Ottens Excud.Amst:. De eerste druk (staat) verscheen in 1621, uitgegeven te Haarlem door David van Horenbeeck. Dit is de tweede druk. Hier zien we Haarlem vanuit het noorden met centraal de Grote of St.-Bavokerk en op de voorgrond de Kleverlaan. Geheel links de ruïne van kasteel Huis ter Kleef waarnaast een boerderij aan Het Zieken (de tegenwoordige Kennemerstraat) en het torentje van het voormalig Leproos-, Pest- en Dolhuis (thans Museum Het Dolhuys). Geheel rechts een van de molens aan de Zijlweg. In composities van Pieter de Molijn (London 1595-1661 Haarlem) komen de figuren altijd sterk naar voren en steken van de omgeving af. Op de voorgrond links zien we hier een aantal mannen en koeien. Op de Kleverlaan een aantal paard-en-wagens, ruiters en wandelaars. In het midden een tekenaar die het Huis ter Kleef schetst, vermoedelijk is dit De Molijn zelf die zich een plek in deze voorstelling gunde. Hollandse landschapsschilderkunst uit de 17de eeuw speelde zich vooral af rond Haarlem. Het burgerlijke buitenvermaak, zoals het rondrijden in "˜speelwagens', het bezoek aan plattelandsherbergen, dorpskermissen en het wandelen, was daarbij een favoriet onderwerp. In het relatief veilige Hollandse plattel … [Click Below for Full Description]
