        Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica.

      London: William & John Innys, printers to the Royal Society,, 1726. Editio tertia aucta & emendata. Quarto (283 x 223 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked with corners restored, compartments and raised bands lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt, boards ruled in gilt. Bound with the half-title which is often missing; bound without the licence leaf and final advertisement leaf as is common. Engraved portrait frontispiece, engraved illustration of cometary orbit by John Senex on p. 506, woodcut diagrams to the text. Armorial bookplate of George Stace, modern ownership inscription of Edmund C. Stoner and label of J. H. Stoner to front pastedown, near-contemporary ownership inscription of Robert White Almond to front free endpaper, pencil annotations to pages 133 and 243. Boards marked, frontispiece foxed as typical, occasional faint ink marks and spotting to margins, upper edges of sig. Q1, R1, R4, Xx2, Yy2, and Zz2 browned, edges of rear free endpaper slightly torn, overall a very good copy. One of 200 large paper copies of the third and best edition of "the greatest work in the history of science" (PMM), containing the definitive text edited by Henry Pemberton and by Newton himself, in the form that Newton approved, the last published during the author's lifetime and the basis of all subsequent editions. It contains a new preface by the author together with extensive alterations (the most notable being to the scholium on fluxions) and additions such as a new section on the motion of the moon's nodes and the inclusion of several experiments by John Theophilus Desaguliers, Newton's assistant. It is the first to contain the three-quarter-length line engraved portrait of Newton by George Vertue after John Vanderbank which was made during Newton's lifetime. This frontispiece has become uncommon, and many copies of the third edition in circulation are bound without it: even fewer have both the frontispiece and the half-title. Large paper copies are significantly scarce in commerce; only eight have appeared at auction in the last 20 years to our knowledge. There were a further 1,000 copies on ordinary paper and 50 largest paper copies on thick paper. This copy has an excellent near-contemporary Cambridge provenance. It bears the inscription of the Reverend Robert White Almond (1786-1853) who, like Newton, was admitted to Cambridge University as a sizar. From 1803 he studied mathematics, first at Trinity College and then at Queen's College, as the inscription notes. He matriculated with an MA in 1813 and soon thereafter became rector of St Peter's Church in Nottingham, where he remained until his death, Almond was one of the principal founders of the Bromley House Library as well as the President of Nottingham's Astronomical Society for 34 years, where he led scientific discussions and advised on the purchase of new books. His keen interest in contemporary science led him to purchase several pieces of apparatus for the library, including a sundial which he presented in 1836. This copy remained in Cambridge throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries: George Stace was mayor of the town from 1910 to 1911, and British theoretical physicist Edmund C. Stoner graduated with a First Class degree from the University in 1921. "The Principia provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory. With him the separation of natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlunar worlds disappeared. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens ... [Newton] is generally regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time and the founder of mathematical physics" (PMM).

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.

        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..."""

"The text given by the Cruscan Academy was first thoroughly corrected in 1726-7 by G. A. Volpi, Professor of philosophy at Padua; and the edition of that date, superintended by him, and printed at Padua by Giuseppe Comino (Hence 'The Cominiana') is much and deservedly noted for its accuracy, and has been more frequently reprinted than any other."

        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. Par feu Messire François de Salignac de la Motte Fénelon, Précepteur de Messeigneurs les Enfans de France, & depuis Archevêque-Duc de Cambrai, Prince du saint Empire, &c. 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.

Lacking subscriber's list called for in ESTC. 8 vols. 8vo. Contemporary sprinkled calf. Expertly rebacked to style, red morocco spine labels, text exceptionally clean and crisp. First Irish edition of Shakespeare. Wood-engraved head- and tailpieces and initials. Lacking subscriber's list called for in ESTC. 8 vols. 8vo. 'The first edition of Shakespeare's works published in Ireland' (Jaggard). A rare complete set of the first edition of Shakespeare's works printed in Ireland. Published in 8 volumes by George Grierson and George Ewing, this piracy reprints Pope's 6-volume 4to edition of 1725, including Rowe's Life and the Index of the Characters, Sentiments, Speeches and Descriptions. It also includes the text of Sewell's supplementary volume 7 - volume 8 in this edition. Jaggard notes that the edition "appears to have met with poor encouragement, only 162 subscribers offering the needful support." This was not Grierson and Ewing's first attempt to print Shakespeare in Ireland. Grierson's 1721 edition of Hamlet is believed to be the first printing of any Shakespeare work in Ireland; Grierson also printed editions of Othello and Julius Caesar that year. In 1723 Ewing issued an edition of Macbeth. All early Irish editions of Shakespeare are rare. We find no complete copies of this set at auction on ABPC or Rare Book Hub and fewer than 20 copies in institutions. The Eccles copy of the 1723 Macbeth brought over $31,000 in 2004. With Irish provenance from the library of Mount Congreve, County Waterford. Jaggard, p. 498; ESTC T63759. Provenance: John Congreve (1801-1863, armorial bookplate in each volume)

      Printed for J. Darby, A. Bettesworth et al., London 1726 - Octavo. xxvi, (1) 304pp. Original blind-stamped decorative calf with gilt lettering on spine. Raised bands. Though the name of the author does not appear in the title, a dedication to John Lord Cateret is signed Francis Hutcheson. Regarded as one of the earliest modern writers on aesthetics Hutcheson and was appointed Chair of Moral Philosophy in Glasgow, succeeding his master Gershom Carmichael in 1729. 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.

        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.

      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.

      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."

        TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First Surgeon and then a Captain of Several Ships.

      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. 8vo. (184 x 114 mm). Recent, period style full speckled tan calf, red morocco title labels to the spine, lettered in gilt, raised bands with gilt decoration in the sections. Occasional light spotting but generally clean and bright. Overall an excellent set of this seminal work. Four maps and two plans, plus decorative chapter headings and tailpieces. 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]

        The Works of Shakespear. In Eight Volumes. Collated and Corrected by the Former Editions, by Mr. Pope

      Dublin: Printed by and for Geo. Grierson ... and for George Ewing ..., 1726. First Irish edition of Shakespeare. Wood-engraved head- and tailpieces and initials. Lacking subscriber's list called for in ESTC. 8 vols. 8vo. Contemporary sprinkled calf. Expertly rebacked to style, red morocco spine labels, text exceptionally clean and crisp. First Irish edition of Shakespeare. Wood-engraved head- and tailpieces and initials. Lacking subscriber's list called for in ESTC. 8 vols. 8vo. 'The first edition of Shakespeare's works published in Ireland' (Jaggard). A rare complete set of the first edition of Shakespeare's works printed in Ireland. Published in 8 volumes by George Grierson and George Ewing, this piracy reprints Pope's 6-volume 4to edition of 1725, including Rowe's Life and the Index of the Characters, Sentiments, Speeches and Descriptions. It also includes the text of Sewell's supplementary volume 7 - volume 8 in this edition. Jaggard notes that the edition "appears to have met with poor encouragement, only 162 subscribers offering the needful support." This was not Grierson and Ewing's first attempt to print Shakespeare in Ireland. Grierson's 1721 edition of Hamlet is believed to be the first printing of any Shakespeare work in Ireland; Grierson also printed editions of Othello and Julius Caesar that year. In 1723 Ewing issued an edition of Macbeth. All early Irish editions of Shakespeare are rare. We find no complete copies of this set at auction on ABPC or Rare Book Hub and fewer than 20 copies in institutions. The Eccles copy of the 1723 Macbeth brought over $31,000 in 2004. With Irish provenance from the library of Mount Congreve, County Waterford. Jaggard, p. 498; ESTC T63759. Provenance: John Congreve (1801-1863, armorial bookplate in each volume)
