        Prodromus tractatuum de geographia Scandinaviæ veteri, et historiis Gothicis: Exhibens succinctum judicium de Scythiæ, Svethiæ et Gothiæ etymo, ut et runarum in cippis Helsingicis ac Medelpadicis inventarum ætate, usu atque explicatione.

      Auctore Erico Julio Bioerner. Stockholm, Joh. L. Horrn, (1726). 4:o. (4),+ 48,+ (6) s. Med 11 runavbildningar i träsnitt i texten. Lagerfläckar. Sammanhäftad med: CELSIUS, Olof d. ä.)

Med genomgående fuktrand i nederkant. Sammanhäftad med: CELSIUS, Olof. De monumentis quibusdam runicis epistola ad amicum. Uppsala, Wernerianis, 1727. 4:o. 16 s. Kaffefläck(?) på titelbladet och några andra fläckar. Häftad i något senare gråpappomslag. Ur Trolleholms bibliotek med Carl Trolle Bondes förgyllda monogram på främre omlaget och Trolleholms bibliotekstämpel på försättsbladet och första verkets titelsida. Med notering i bläck att boken inköpts av Sparre på auktion efter A. Roman i mars 1859 och äldre innehållsförteckning i bläck på försättsbladet. Warmholtz 660-663 & 1265. Fiske Runic Literature, s. 5 & 15. Carlander III, s. 462ff. Bortsett från den första utlösande skriften av Anders Celsius, "Cippi runici...", en komplett samling i fint skick av stridsskrifterna mellan Olof Celsius d. ä. och Björner om hälsingerunorna och deras ålder. Ovanlig! Den första skriften är Björners första inlägg - och tillika Björners första publicerade bok, vid sidan av sin avhandling från 1717. Sidan 29-48 i detta innehåller kapitlet "De aetate, usu & genuina explicatione runarum...", vilket är ett hårt (oanständigt, enligt Warmholtz) angrepp på både Olof, Anders och Magnus Celsius skrifter om hälsinge- och medelpadsrunorna. Därefter följer Celsius svar ställt som ett brev till Björner och dennes svar på detta, samt Celsius avslutande skrift som blåste av fejden. Björner, som på det stora hela gick förlorande ur striden, hade dock rätt på en punkt; att dessa runor var yngre än vanliga runor och inte äldre, vilket Celsius hävdade. Gustaf Adolf Sparres stora bibliotek köptes 1886 av Carl Trolle Bonde och införlivades med Trolleholms bibliotek

        THE HISTORY OF THE WARS OF NEW-ENGLAND, WITH THE EASTERN INDIANS. OR, A NARRATIVE OF THEIR CONTINUED PERFIDY AND CRUELTY

      Boston: Printed by T. Fleet, for S. Gerrish...and D. Henchman..., 1726.. [2],iv,[2],134,[1]pp., including in-text woodcuts. 12mo. Antique-style speckled calf, ruled in gilt, spine tooled in gilt with raised bands and a gilt morocco label. Titlepage has been backed with paper, expertly repairing a small tear in the center foredge, with two letters in the date "1725" in fine facsimile. First text leaf repaired in margins, as are leafs S1 and S2, resulting in loss of a few letters of text. Text trimmed quite close, occasionally shaving a page number or the outer letter of a line of text. "Advertisement" (i.e. Errata) leaf in expert facsimile, as is almost always the case with this book. Still a very good copy overall. One of the primary sources for the early Indian wars of New England, describing the fighting on the northern and eastern borders of Massachusetts during Queen Anne's War of 1703-13 as well as fighting in 1722-25. Vail calls it an "excellent history," and Field adds that Penhallow's "work on the Indian wars is esteemed as the highest authority on that subject." Penhallow, although having gone to Massachusetts as a missionary, became a chief justice of the colony, and as such was in an excellent position to know about colonial military affairs. A very rare book, accorded a "c" rating by Howes. Vail calls it an "excellent history," and Field ranks it "among the rarest of New England imprints." HOWES P201, "c." CHURCH 904. EVANS 2796.

        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 1/2 x 4 inches). [2],iv,10,207,[3]pp., including contents leaf. (Minor spotting, occasional small tears to margins ). Contemporary American brown morocco, covers panelled in blind, the inner panel with small flower-spray tools at each corner, the flat spine divided into compartments by intermittent rolls in blind. In a half morocco slipcase. 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). This copy with important provenance to John Cotton (1693-1757), the minister of the Church in Newton and the great grandson of Puritan divine John Cotton (1585-1652), the maternal grandfather of Cotton Mather.

        GULLIVER'S TRAVELS

      1726. Very Good. [SWIFT, Jonathan]. TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. In FOUR PARTS. By LEMUEL GULLIVER, First a SURGEON, and then a CAPTAIN of several SHIPS. Vol. I.[II.] London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, 1726[-1727]. Mixed first and second edition. Four parts bound in two octavo volumes: xii,148,[vi],164; [vi],155,[1 blank],199,[1 blank]. Engraved frontisportrait of Gulliver in Vol. I in the usual second state, with the inscription "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of..." on the oval and a Latin inscription on the tablet. Also illustrated with four maps, two plans, and numerous wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces. Contemporary calf boards, expertly rebacked with later matching calf spines and leather labels, all edges stained red. Early ink ownership on front fly-leaf of Vol. I. Boards have gently rounded fore- corners and abraded surfaces. The lower joint of Vol II is starting. Rear endpapers in both volumes are replacements and are slightly toned. Occasional light foxing and/or soling to text, but very good overall. Vol. I is first edition, second printing (Teerink no. 290: first edition state AA) throughout, with all titles, typos, pagination, and signatures as called for. Vol. II is second edition (Teerink no. 293) throughout, with all titles, typos, omissions, pagination, and signatures as called for, including "The Second Edition, Corrected" on the title-page and the facing page of advertisements. Gulliver's Travels was an immediate success upon publication (28 October 1726), requiring many rapid, subsequent printings to meet demand, all of which has led to its bibliographical complexity. For example, the time elapsed between the printing of the two volumes in this set was only six months. And based upon the style, condition, and wear to the bindings of these volumes, they were probably mated at or immediately after publication in 1727.
