        Architectura Civilis: Bestehend in Unterschiedlichen Gebäuen, der Besten und Neuesten Art, Nach dem Franzöischem Gusto, mit Gehörigem Grund und Aufrissen famt Darzu Erforderten Durchschnitten

      2 unnumbered leaves including engraved title page and author's preface, followed by 24 engraved plates showing floor plans and exterior designs for six different German homes, varying in grandeur, each building represented by floor plans of the first and second floors, a view of the façade, and an elevation or profile, plates numbered in the lower right corner. Some creasing, minor soiling, repair to lower right corner of title page, minor pencil notation to inside front cover, images clear and well-inked. Oblong 4to. Three-quarter calf. Minor wear and rubbing to extremities. Nürnberg (Joh. Christoph Weigels Seel. Wittib.) n.d. (circa 1726-1750). Johann Christian Weigel was a German engraver, art dealer, and publisher, who published an informal series of similar works including Anderer Versuch by J.R. Faesch and Vorstellung Einiger Modernen Gebäude by J.J. Saenger. Weigel passed away in 1726, and it is likely that this work was published by his widow between that time and 1729, when she handed over the business. No other works by J.J. Steinburger are known. Scarce; as of July 2017, WorldCat locates only two holdings in North American institutions.

        Earl of Portmore's signed document concerning shares in the South Sea Company

      England, March 22, 1726. 13" x 16". "13 x 16 laid paper. England, March 22, 1726. 3 embossed seals. A crown sits on top of a buckled garter containing the words ""HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE"" meaning ""shame on him who thinks evil of it"". This is the motto of the Order of the Garter, the highest order of English knighthood. A flower is in the center and the letters ""R XV PENCE"" are across the bottom. A red seal is next to the name ""Portmore"". The document shows fold marks and there are three small holes in the middle partially obscuring the text.Good handwritten document from the Earle of Portmore to Alexander Chalmore, an attorney, regarding the South Sea Company stock. The South Sea Company was created in 1711 and was promised all trade to the Spanish colonies in South America in exchange for consolidating the English national debt from the War of Spanish Succession. The company stock inflated as a result of several factors including the Bubble Act which passed in 1720 which increased confidence in the company and elevated the price of stock. When the company collapsed later that year, many people were financially ruined. Some people, however, profited including the management team of the South Sea Company. Investigations were conducted and those who profited were required to return the money. Also interesting to note is the mention of ""Charles Duke of Shrewsbury"" who played a leading role in the Revolution of 1688 in England which ended the reign of Roman Catholic James II and began the reign of his Protestant daughter Mary II and William III. The document reads in part:""Know all men by these presents that I David Earl of Portmore have made ordained constituted and appointed and by those [illegible] make ordained constitute and appoint [illegible] Alexander Chalmore of Burstow in his County of Surry [illegible] my true and lawful attorney for me...ask demand [illegible] and take all and singular the dividends or produce of...South Sea Stock now or late standing in the names of the right [illegible] Charles Duke of Shrewsbury and Robt Nelson [illegible] both deceased and George Pitt...in trust for me as also...in my own name...or in the names of any other [illegible] persons in trust for me..."""

        Travels into several remote Nations of the World... by Lemuel Gulliver

      First edition, Teerink´s "B". This is one of the most celebrated utopias of all times, as well as one of the great works of literature of the 18th century. It can be said that Swift (1667 - 1745) reinvents the genre of imaginary travels; the success was immediate, the first printing having sold out in a week. "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond Temporary Fame" (PMM). A fine copy of this remarkable piece of travel literature "Of all the works of eighteenth-century English literature, it is probably Gulliver´s Travels that is the best-known and most widely read today" (ODNB); this is Teerink´s "B" edition, or third issue, printed within a couple months from the first issue, which belonged to the famed 19th century British bibliophile Thompson Yates. Provenance: S. A. Thompson Yates, his bookplate on front pastedown, with additional clip-on booksellers catalogue entries. The illustration comprises portrait of Lemuel Gulliver by Sturter-Sheppard and six plates, the portrait in its second state. Teerink, 291. PMM, 185.

        Les avantures de Telemaque fils D’Ulysse.

Nouvelle édition conforme au manuscript original. Enrichie d’un grand nombre de figures en taille douce. Avec des Remarques pour l’eclaircissement de cet Ouvrage

      A Londres: chez J. Tonson, a l’enseigne de Shakespear dans le Strand; & J. Watts, a son Imprimerie dans Wild-Court pres de Lincolns-Inn-Fields, , MDCCXXVI [1726]. Full Calf. Near Fine. The Second Edition published in England, based upon the extensively corrected, enlarged and reconceived Paris edition of 1717. 12mo; [18], xxviii, [4], 468, [12]pp, with a portrait frontispiece of Fenelon, title page in red and black, folding map tracing Telemachus's travels throughout the Mediterranean, and 24 full-page copper-engraved plates, one at the head of each book (in reconceiving the work for the Paris edition, the author's grandnephew divided the story into 24 books conforming to Homer's "Iliad"). Contemporary sprinkled calf, the spine richly gilt in six compartments divided by raised bands with a red morocco lettering piece gilt in the second. End papers lightly spotted, but all else generally clean and bright; archival repairs to tears on two leaves (no loss of text); joints very skillfully (almost invisibly) repaired, with the binding now sturdy and secure. Collated and complete with the often-suppressed "Ode" and the two leaves of advertisements at the start of the book. ESTC Citation No. T139621. OCLC Number: 504521029. A scarce edition, with OCLC locating only one copy (in the British Library) and ESTC just five others. Fénelon, Archbishop of Cambrai and tutor to the seven-year-old Duc de Bourgogne (grandson of Louis XIV and second in line to the throne) published this didactic novel anonymously in 1699. The slender plot fills out a gap in Homer's Odyssey, recounting the educational travels of Telemachus, son of Ulysses, accompanied by his tutor, Mentor, the book's true hero. Mentor denounces war, luxury, and selfishness and proclaims the brotherhood of man. Though set in a far off place and ancient time, Télémaque (and Mentor's pronouncements) was immediately recognized as a satire on the autocratic reign of Louis XIV, whose wars and taxes on the peasantry had reduced the country to famine. Predictably, Louis banished Fénelon from Versailles, confining him to his diocese, where he remained, with few exceptions, for the rest of his life. Nonetheless, Télémaque was an immediate best seller, both in France and abroad, translated into every European language and even Latin verse. It inspired numerous imitations and supplied the plot for Mozart's opera, Idomeneo (1781). It was also a favorite of Thomas Jefferson, who reread it frequently. (adapted from Wikipedia)

        Ratio Disciplinae Fratrum Nov- Anglorum. A Faithful Account of the Discipline prosessed and practised; in the churches of New-England. With interspersed and instructive reflections on the discipline of the primitive churches

      Boston: printed for S. Gerrish in Cornhill, 1726. Small octavo, signed in 4s. (6 3/4 x 4 1/8 inches). [2],iv,10,207,[3]pp., including contents leaf. H3 torn, lower margin of Ee4 clipped, upper corner of title torn with loss to a few letters supplied in old manuscript facsimile. Contemporary panelled calf, rebacked.Provenance: W. Cogswell (early signature)Mather reviews church principles - a key work of New England church history.One of Cotton Mather's most important works and an "important exposition of the tenets of Congregationalism that carefully reaffirms the principles of the Cambridge Platform " (Streeter).Holmes reveals that although published in 1726, the work was actually written in 1701, quoting from Mather's Diary from October 3 of that year: "About this Time I finished a Work, which cost me much Time, and Care and Study. I wrote in a Book of above an hundred pages in Quarto, an account of the Principles and Practices of the Churches of New England. But I embellished it all along, with a further Account of what was done in the primitive Churches, which required some exquisite labor. I concluded, that a Book of this Importance, would have a mighty Tendency, to preserve the holy Discipline in our own Churches, from the Dangers of the Apostasy which may threaten it, and promote the Designs of Reformation abroad in the world."Holmes reviews and explains the many delays in Mather publishing the work, the addition of Increase Mather's Attestation dated 1719 and the eventual publication in 1726. The final publication was nearly derailed as the original manuscript was scattered by a strong gust of wind, with the loose sheets finding their way into the garden, the wood pile, and strangers's hands. That every page was recovered without the loss of a single sentence was, as Mather reveals in a letter to Thomas Prince, a sign that the "Angel of the Lord Look'd after it ... I don't wonder that such a work must be brought forward with a Struggle. Tis a sign, tis for the Kingdome of God!" (quoted in Holmes).Church 903; Evans 2775; Holmes 318; Sabin 46474; Streeter Sale 672.

        Afbeelding der menschelyke bezigheden, bestaande in hondert onderscheiden printverbeeldingen. Amsterdam, Reinier & Josua Ottens, [ca. 1726/50]. 4to. With richly engraved emblematic frontispiece, engraved publisher's device on title-page, and 100 numbered engraved plates (plate size ca. 12 x 8 cm) of trades and professions, engraved after the designs by Jan and Caspar Luyken. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum, gilt and gauffered edges.

      V. Eeghen & V.d. Kellen 244; Klaversma & Hannema 740; Landwehr, Emblem books Low Countries 531. A wholly engraved edition except for the letterpress title-page, printed by Reinier and Josua Ottens (ca. 1726/50) from the plates of the pirated edition of 1695 of the most celebrated and most famous work of Jan and Caspar Luyken. The plates in the pirated edition may have been engraved from the original Luyken drawings and are not in mirror image.The pirated edition, and consequently our edition as well, is quite differently arranged: all trades and professions are put in alphabetical order, thus presenting a rational and handy dictionary of Dutch contemporary trades and professions. Also the texts are totally different: instead of Luyken's 2-line mottos above and 6-line emblematic poetry below, this edition has single titles engraved above, and an elegant quatrain by the Dutch poet Anthony Janssen van ter Goes (ca. 1626-1699) below. This pirated edition was clearly intended for the very different market of a more worldly public. The depictions of the trades and professions themselves are virtually the same, except for the fact that the plates are somewhat firmer and the impressions stronger than in any of the Luykens' editions. With a slip of paper covering the contemporary owner's name. In fine condition, with only an occasional minor spot or marginal defect, and with generous margins (leaf size 20.5 x 16 cm). Fine collection of prints by two of the best Dutch engravers of their day.

Though the name of the author does not appear in the title, a dedication to John Lord Cateret is signed Francis Hutcheson.

Hutcheson's philosophical system is founded on the observation of human nature, and in these works he elaborates on the correlation between beauty and goodness, harmony and pleasure, respectively the moral good and evil, virtue and vice. Hutcheson was an important influence on David Hume and Adam Smith and the American historian Norman Fiering names Hutcheson as one of the "most influential and respected moral philosophers in America of the eighteenth century (Moral Philosophy at Seventeenth-Century Harvard: A Discipline in Transition, 1981, p. 199)."Inside cover contains bookplate of Samuel Bosanquet Esq. (1700-1765); his son, also named Samuel, was Governor of the bank of England from 1791-1793. Sam Bosanquet 1729 inked to top of title page.

        New Map of the Terraqueous Globe according to the Ancient Discoveries and most general Divisions of it into Continents and Oceans.

      Oxford: c. 1726-38. 20 x 14.5 inches, later hand-coloring, matted, very good. Decorative and instructional double hemisphere map of the world, dedicated to William, Duke of Gloucester. This map shows California as an island, an incomplete New Holland attached to N. Guinea, and a partial New Zealand coastline with the annotation ?supposed to be part of ye Southern unknown Continent?. Edward Wells was a tutor in mathematics and geography at Christchurch College, Oxford. This is from a set of 22 maps he dedicated to his student, William, Duke of Gloucester, who was then heir to the throne but who died only a few years after the maps were published. The maps enjoyed commercial success for their clarity and their beauty. Below the hemispheres is a dedicating vignette, with William shown with his tutor under the tree on the left, an encounter between men of the old and new worlds in the center, and geographers from various cultures under a tree on the right. In the background is Christchurch Meadow and the towers of Christchurch, Magdalen, New College and others. The engraver of the map, Michael Burghers, emigrated from Holland to England and settled in Oxford in 1673 where he became engraver to the University. See Leighly, California As An Island #117.

        Caart van het Eyland Manipa / Caart van het Eyland Noessa-Laoet / Caart van het Eyland Honimoa / Caart van het Eyland Oma

      Amsterdam: Francois Valentijn, 1726. unbound. Chart. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 17 3/4 x 22 1/4" This rare chart depicts the Islands in the Moluccas group. Essentially four maps on a single sheet, the islands of Manipa, Noessa-Laoet, Honimoa and Oma are included here. The Moluccas, part of the so-called Spice Islands, otherwise known as the Maluku Islands in Indonesia. Covered largely in mountains and forests, the islands were highly valued by the Dutch as a center for the trade in nutmeg, mace and cloves that were originally found only there. A panel on the left depicts an interesting scene of two warriors from Manipa, west of Seram, in battle with knife, shield and sword. The map also features rhumb lines and compass rose. Map is in very good condition with some offsetting and foxing throughout. François Valentijn (1666-1727) was a Dutch minister and naturalist who worked as a missionary in India. He is best known for his "Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indiën," a monumental history and description of the East Indies and its surrounding lands that remains a significant primary source today. This map is a fascinating document of Dutch involvement in the region.

        [Gulliver's Travels] Travels into several remote nations of the world. In four parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, first a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships [Teerink "B"]

      London: printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle-Temple Gate, in Fleet-Street, , M,DCC,XXVI. [1726]. First Edition. Full Calf. Fine. Four parts in two octavo volumes, with continuous pagination to each volume (the parts of the first two editions/issues were separately paginated, giving rise to the suggestion they were originally issued in parts): viii,[4],148,[6],149-310; [6],154,[8],155-353,[1]pp (numerous misnumbered pages, but text continuous and complete), engraved frontispiece portrait of Lemuel Gulliver by Sturter Sheppard, in second state, printed on paper with vertical chain lines, with "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of Redriff. Ætat. suæ LVIII." around the oval and beneath, on a tablet where the inscription first appeared, a quotation, in Latin, from Persius; five engraved maps (two for Part III and one for each of the other Parts), and engraved plate depicting the writing machine in the "Grand Academy of Lagado" in Part III; decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces and historiated initials. Early nineteenth-century speckled calf, very skillfully rebacked; red and black morocco lettering pieces gilt; marbled end papers; all edges gilt; cloth slipcase. A superb presentation, bindings square, tight and unmarked; contents clean and fresh (unobtrusively washed with faded signature on title page, vol. II). Teerink-Scouten 291. Rothschild 2108. Printing and the Mind of Man 185. Grolier English 100, 42. Third Issue/Edition (Teerink "B"), published in December, 1726 (following appearance of the first issue on October 28). For nearly two hundred years, the three separate appearances of Gulliver's Travels from 1726 (Teerink A, AA and B) were considered different issues of a single first edition. Early in the twentieth century bibliographical analysis demonstrated that these were, in fact, separate editions, each set from the previous, but Teerink still thought it "advisable to stick to the well established practice of calling the three 1726 editions first," largely because the publisher (Benjamin Motte), as well as Swift (in letters to Pope and Ford), thought of them in that way, describing only the edition following Teerink B (the 1727 octavo edition) as "The Second Edition" (vol. 1 title page) and "The Second Edition, Corrected" (vol. 2 title page) and the 1727 duodecimo as the Third (all five published by Motte), "after which Bathurst's 1742, 1747 and 1751 editions as 'fourth,' 'fifth' and 'sixth' follow in regular sequence." The several editions of 1726 all consist of two volumes of two parts each describing voyages to: I. Lilliput; II. Brobdingnag; III. Laputa, Balnibarbi, Luggnagg, Glubdubdrib, and Japan, and IV. the Country of the Houyhnhnms. The distinguishing feature of the third issue/edition, according to Williams (whose exhaustive analysis of all five Motte editions, in the introduction and notes to the definitive edition of Swift's text, appeared in 1926), "is the continuous pagination and continuous count by signatures throughout each volume." (Williams, p. lxxiv) "Gulliver's Travels has achieved the final apotheosis of a satirical fable, but it has also become a tale for children. For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the [book's] historical background, twenty have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story."

Signed in the first volume by all four publishers, listing all subscribers, and numbered (#93), identifying this set as that of Adriaan Deynoot (1685-1744). Contemporary uniform full morocco. Spines with eight raised, gilt-ornamented bands, rich gilt compartments and two black morocco labels with gilt titles. Boards with gilt ornamental borders, gilt corner pieces, and gilt dentelles. Marbled endpapers. Edges marbled.l First edition of this rare, splendid and opulent work which was vastly expanded on knowledge derived from the author's own collection of natural history specimens and artifacts - Marsigli's famous Kunstkammer in Bologna. The work deals with the natural history of the Danube river, which runs from southern Germany into Austria, through Slovakia, Hungary, along Croatia, through Serbia and Romania, and along Bulgaria, towards the Black Sea. It flows through Regensburg, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade and numerous other cities. It is the longest river of Central Europe. Its fauna has many endemic elements, and its waters have been a major trading route since prehistoric times. Wood: "Basic work on one of Europe's greatest rivers [.] in which [Marsigli] devoted much space to a study of the riverbed and of the waters, as well as to the flora and fauna, and geology and the mineralogy of the adjacent land." DSB: "An early classic on the natural history of the River Danube with an account (vols. IV-VI) of the animals living in it and about its course, a description of the fishes, birds and their nests, the quadrupeds roaming the banks, etc.". The volumes are devoted to cartography, astronomy and hydrography (Volume 1) with maps of the whole river and spurious astronomical observations [measurements of star positions (e.g. Polaris, Arcturus, Spica) at various places along the Danube (e.g. Vienna), Jupiter and the position of the Galilean moons (in several figures), the transit of Mercury, on 3 November 1697 and its track across the solar disc (figured), and lunar phases with 16 large figures showing the terminator relative to the moon’s craters]; archaeology and history of the settlements, towns, roads and bridges (Vol. 2); mineralogy (Vol. 3); fish fauna (Vol. 4), which includes one plate with shells, and two with turtles; avifauna (Vol. 5); and several other subjects, including meteorological and climatological observations, notes on the river's velocity, the insects occurring in and near the river, etc., etc. (Vol. 6). They are titled as follows: Tomus I, in tres partes digestus : geographicum, astronomicum, hydrographicum; Tomus II. De Antiquitatibus Romanorum ad ripas Danubii; Tomus. III. De Mineralibus circa Danubium effossis; Tomus IV. De Piscibus in aquis Danubii viventibus; Tomus V. De Avibus circa aquas Danubii vagantibus, et de ipsarum nidis.; Tomus VI. De Fontibus Danubii. Observationes anatomicae. De Aquis Danubii et Tibisci. Catalogus plantarum. Observationes habitae cum barometris et thermometris. De Insectis. Wood: "The part of ornithological plates with 74 drawings by the Italian artist Raimondo Manzini (1658-1730), including 59 birds, and 15 nests with eggs, the latter are considered the first illustrations of its kind in the history of ornithology". In several bibliographies the plate number is erroneously stated to be 284, which probably goes back to a counting error caused by inconsistencies in the numbering of figures and the distinction between engraved plates and text engravings. Complete copies have 283 plates, as should be concluded after carefully comparing the extensive plate listings.
