SWIFT, JONATHAN
London: Benj. Motte, 1726. FIRST EDITION. This is a handsome set of Teerink s A edition, the true first edition. As Sir William Temple s secretary at Moor Park, the young Swift had access to many travel accounts in Temple s library. A frequent reader of such books during his formative years, Swift began working in 1714 on his own fictional account of the travels of Martin Scriblerus. The success of Robinson Crusoe (1719) helped spur on the writing of the book, a satire not only of travel narratives but of many aspects of eighteenth-century life including politics, science, commerce, and society. By the 1720s that work had become Gulliver s Travels. In March 1726 Swift came to England for the first time since 1714, bringing the manuscript of Gulliver s Travels. To preserve his anonymity, Swift dealt with Motte by post and through intermediaries. It has always been assumed that political prudence was the main reason for Swift s so carefully preserving the secret of his authorship. Certainly Swift enjoyed the thought (whether real or illusion) of writing dangerously (Lock, The Text of Gulliver s Travels ). The author returned to Dublin even before the parcel had been delivered to the publisher. Although it was rumored that Swift was the author, he maintained the fiction that he knew nothing of the authorship in his conversation and correspondence. Motte hurried the book into print, using five printers who took different sections of the text. The initial printing (Teerink A) sold out within one week, and two additional editions (AA and B) soon followed. Gulliver s Travels was a … [Click Below for Full Description]

The first three editions of Gulliver's Travels were all published by Benjamin Motte in octavo format and dated 1726 without edition statement except in the second volume of the B edition, which stated "Second edition." The three were considered different issues until Lucius L. Hubbard and Harold Williams showed conclusively in 1926 that they were different editions. They appeared in quick succession, a testiment to the book's immediate popularity: the 'A' edition appeared on 28 October 1726, the 'AA" edition in mid-November, and this 'B' edition, which was set up from the AA edition, was published in December.

Sir Thomas More
Printed for James Woodman and David Lyon, 1726. FIRST EDITION. Octavo. xxxi,336, [15]pp. Index, Gilt-tooled full contemporary brown calf, red title-label with gold lettering. Raised bands. Frontispiece engraving of Thomas More. Title-page printed in red and black. A very good fresh copy which seldom surfaces in collectible condition. A captivating account of the life of Sir Thomas More (1478-1535). More was an English lawyer, statesman, author, social philosopher as well as a noted Renaissance humanist. He wrote Utopia, published in 1516, about the political system of an imaginary, ideal island nation and gave rise to a literary genre, utopian and dystopian fiction, which features ideal societies or perfect cities, or their opposite. He was also an important counselor to King Henry VIII and in the last years of his life serves as Lord Chancellor (1529-32). More opposed Henry VIII separation from the papal church and denied that the king was the Supreme Head of the Church of England. In 1534 he was imprisoned in the Tower of London for his refusal to take the oath required by the First Succession Act which was passed by the Parliament of England in March 1534. The oath acknowledged the anti-Papal powers of Parliament in matters of religion. A year after More was arrested he was tried for treason and beheaded. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Shelvocke, George (1675-1742
Printed for J. Senex; W. and J. Innys, J. Osborn and T. Longman, 1726. First Edition. Hardcover. "Captains Shelvocke and Clipperton led a privately financed privateering expedition to attack Spanish shipping. Shelvocke gave his superior officer the slip in a storm and proceeded to Brazil and thence to the west coast of South America, where in two months he sacked Payta, Peru, and captured several small prizes. His vessel, the Speedwell, was wrecked at Juan Fernandez Island, but a ship was built out of the wreckage, and he sailed up the coast to Baja California. After crossing the Pacific via Guam and Macao, Shelvocke returned to England, where he was accussed of piracy and embezzlement, and then acquitted. He soon left for the Continent a wealthy man. Shelvocke wrote this account, in part, as a vindication of his conduct. In it he mentions the gold of California and the guano of Peru, more than a hundred years before their rediscovery in the 19th century. An incident in the narrative describing the passage around Cape Horn, in which a sailor kills an albatross, is said to have inspired Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner" (Hill 1557). 468 p. with a folding world map that depicts California as an island, four plates (two folding), title page vignette, and decorative head and tail pieces, and initials.

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.

Roberts, George [Defoe, Daniel
1726. London: A. Bettesworth, at the Red Lyon, in Pater-Nofter-Row, and J. Osborn, at the Ship, at St. Saviour's Dock-Head, 1726. First Edition. Full leather. Octavo, [6], 458pp. Brown leather, contemporary leather spine, raised bands with title in gilt. Includes foldout map and 4 illustrated plates. Edges dyed red. Text clean, very occasional spotting. An exceptional copy of this scarce work. Near fine. Item #776 This work, written by Captain George Roberts, is often attributed to Daniel Defoe. In the "British Museum Catalogue," this work is attributed to Defoe. But multiple studies have questioned this opinion, notably the "Dictionary of National Biography," which notes that Defoe never mentions George Roberts in any of his works. National Biography also argues that "no reason can be alleged for doubting the existence of Roberts or the substantial truth of the narrative.". [Attributes: First Edition]

Maria Sibylla Merian
The Hague, 1726. This exquisite hand-colored folio engraving is from Maria Sibylla Merian's "Dissertatio de generatione et metamorphosibus insectorum Surinamensium" commonly referred to as "Insects of Surinam". This is the first French edition and was published in The Hague by Pierre Gosse in 1726. --- Maria Sibylla Merian was a naturalist and artist. Her contributions to entomology were nevery truly acknowledged in her lifetime, but she is considered a groundbreaker in the fields of botany and zoology. She made detailed observations of live specimens, which was a departure from previous studies that used preserved specimens. She focused great detail on the processes of metamorphosis which had not been studied so comprehensively before her work. --- The engravings were done by J. Mulder, P. Sluyter and A. Stopendaal, all after Merian. The work is considered to be one of the most beautiful if not most famous illustrated natural history works of the 18th century. --- The work was the result of Merian's trip with her daughter Dorothea to Surinam in 1699. The pair studied and recorded plants and insects for two year under difficult conditions. They came back to Amsterdam with specimens and their work and produced this astounding work. --- 'Her portrayals of living insects and other animals were imbued with a charm, a minuteness of observation and an artistic sensibility that had not previously been seen in a natural history book'; if Gould and Audubon have 'a spiritual ancestor, then it is difficult to think of a more worthy claimant to the title than Maria Sibylle Merian' (op. … [Click Below for Full Description]
