Non recando la data di stampa sicuramente questo volume è quindi precedente a quello del Mazzoleni, con il quale talvolta si confonde, e certamente più raro.

        LA FIERA, Commedia, e LA TANCIA, Commedia rusticale. Coll’annnotazioni dell’Abate Anton Maria Salvini, Gentiluomo Fiorentino e Lettor delle Lettere Greche nello Studio Fiorentino.

      Firenze, nella Stamperia di S.A.R. per li Tartini e Franchi, 1726. In-4 p. (mm. 305x205), p. pelle bazana coeva, sottile cornice dorata ai piatti, dorso a cordoni (restaurato) con decoraz. e tit. oro su tassello, tagli rossi, 1 c.b., XVI,603 pp.num., con ritratto dell'Autore di C. Allori, inc. in rame da Franceschini; tit. in rosso e nero al frontespizio con bella vignetta incisa. La "Fiera" (occupa 319 facciate) è seguita dalla "Tancia" (che termina a p. 370); vengono appresso le “Annotazioni” del Salvini sopra entrambe, l'Indice e l'Errata. Cfr. Gamba,253: “Pregevolissima edizione.. La "Fiera", pubblicata per la prima volta in questa edizione del 1726, è divisa in XXV Atti e in cinque parti, da recitarsi in altrettanti giorni; fu rappresentata in Firenze nel Carnovale dell'anno 1618. Venne principalmente composta coll'intenzione di maggiormente corredare di bei modi di dire toscani e di gerghi contadineschi il Vocabolario della Crusca” - Brunet,1394 cita la ns. ediz. e precisa: “La "Tancia" avait d'abord été imprimée à Florence en 1612, et la première édit. qui porte le nom de l'Auteur est celle de 1638”. “Michelangelo Buonarroti il Giovane (1568-1646) era figlio di Leonardo, un fratello del grande Michelangelo, di cui raccolse le "Rime" nel 1625. La sua padronanza della lingua toscana e l'amore col quale ne raccoglieva modi e voci dall'uso vivo del popolo, lo resero prezioso e attivissimo collaboratore della prima ediz. del ‘Vocabolario degli Accademici della Crusca'. E nell'Accademia prese il nome di ‘Impastaro'.. Impossibile è dare un sunto o trovare il filo conduttore dell'azione della commedia la "Fiera" che comprende oltre 25.000 versi.. La "Tancia" commedia rusticale in cinque atti in ottave, scintillante di arguzia, di vivacità e di forza drammatica, fu rappresentata nel 1611 alla presenza dei Granduchi Cosimo I e Maria Maddalena in Firenze.” Così Diz. Autori Bompiani,I, p. 363. Antiche scritte a penna in inglese sulla prima c.b. Fresco esemplare, molto ben conservato.

        Haarlem panorama - naar Pieter de Molijn.

      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 werd toen al eindeloos gewandeld, terwijl in andere Europese steden de inwoners wel twee keer uitkeken voordat ze de stadsgrenzen verlieten.Boven het profiel van Haarlem van links naar rechts het wapen van Haarlem, gehouden door twee zeemonsters, het wapen van Holland, een op een gevleugeld paard gezeten vrouw (dichtkunst?), de dorre boom met de wapens van Haarlem op een vaartuig met een zaag op de boeg (symbool voor de verovering van Damiate door een aantal leden van Haarlemse families waarvan de wapenschilden in de boom hangen), vervolgens een op een leeuw gezeten vrouw, die zuilen vasthoudt, als symbool voor de kracht. Daarna het wapen van prins Maurits en tenslotte het oude wapen van Haarlem, gehouden door twee zwaar behaarde mannen.Het cartouche rechtsonder bevat een opdracht aan het stadsbestuur van Haarlem in het Latijn en Grieks door Samuel Ampzing en David van Horenbeeck, daaromheen een aantal voorwerpen waarin we Haarlem zouden moeten herkennen, zoals wapens, harnassen, muziek, muziekinstrumenten, boeken, paletten en penselen, het zwaard van justitie, vlaggen, voorwerpen die te maken hebben met de textielnijverheid en blekerijen, geheel rechtsonder een biervat en een tulp.prijs: ?8.500,- (incl. lijst, BTW margerregeling).

The very rare 1726 "Bradford" compilation of the earliest laws of New York, printed by New York's, and the Middle Colonies', first printer.

        Itinerarium Septentrionale; Or, A Journey Thro' Most Of The Counties Of Scotland, And Those In The North Of England. In Two Parts {Complete, Without The Later "Supplement")

      London: Alexander Gordon / G. Strahan / J. Woodman / J. Innys / T. Woodward, 1726. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. 66 Engraved Plates, Some Fold Out And Multi-Fold. 1st Printing First Issue (1726), Without The Later Supplement. 14 1/4" Tall. Full Calf, Elaborate Gilt Spine With Six Bands, Red Morocco Spine Label, Covers Blindstamped With Elaborate Frames, Gilt Border, Handmade Endpapers.Title Page, 2 Pp Dedication, 4 Pp Subscribers' List, 10 Pp Preface.

Covers Worn, Joints Cracked But Hinges Sound, All Pages Square And Immaculate, All Plates Clean And Intact, 1" Pull Tear In Margin Of Preliminary Fold-Out Map, Not Reaching The Printing Or Engraved Area. This Is The First Book Covering The Antiquities Of Scotland. Alexander Gordon (1692?-1755) Was A Scottish Antiquary And Singer. The Itinerarium, Was Considered An Essential Reference By All Roman Antiquaries Of His Time. Gordon Was Born At Aberdeen, Scotland, Not Later Than 1692. After Earning An M.A. At The University Of Aberdeen, Where He Distinguished Himself By His Classical Attainments, He Resided For A Time In The City, Eking Out A Living As A Teacher Of Languages And Music. He Also Painted Portraits In Oil. He Afterwards Visited The Continent, At First Probably As A Tutor, And Returned Home An Excellent French And Italian Scholar, And With A Good Knowledge Of Art And Antiquities. He Studied Music In Italy, And When In London He Occasionally Sang In Opera, And Among His Countrymen Was Known As "Singing Sandie." At One Time He Appears To Have Been An Itinerant Teacher Of Music, More Especially While Collecting The Materials For His Itinerarium, Some Time Before 1720. In 1720 Stukeley, In His Account Of A Roman Temple [Arthur's Oon] And Other Antiquities Near Graham's Dike In Scotland, Expressed His Wonder That No Scotsman Had Hitherto Investigated The Roman Antiquities Of The Country. "This," Says Gordon, "Was Sufficient Excitement For Me To Proceed Still More Vigorously In Collecting What I Had Begun." During Three Successive Years He Visited Different Parts Of Scotland And Northumberland, Exploring, Drawing, And Measuring Ancient Remains, At Much Cost And Some Hardship. Liberal Patrons, However, Were Not Wanting, Such As The Duke Of Queensberry, To Whom The Work Was Subsequently Dedicated, The Earl Of Pembroke, The Earl Of Findlater, The Earl Of Hertford, And Viscount Bateman, Whose Cabinet Of Curiosities He Was Often Enabled To Enrich During His Travels At Home And Abroad, Edward Chandler, Then Bishop Of Lichfield, And Duncan Forbes Of Culloden, At That Time Lord Advocate. His Great Patron Was Sir John Clerk Of Penicuik, Edinburghshire. He Was A Frequent Guest At Old Penicuik House, Where He Had Access To A Splendid Museum Of Antiquities, And Was Accompanied By Clerk In His Northumbrian Explorations, As Well As In Others Nearer Home. The Work, Which Had Been Largely Subscribed For, Appeared As Itinerarium Septentrionale In 1726. In This Laborious Work Gordon Proved Himself An Honest, Painstaking Antiquary. Though His Theories Have Long Since Been Exploded, He Has Preserved Records Of Earthworks, Inscriptions, And Relics Of Various Kinds, Of Which But For Him All Knowledge Would Have Been Lost. The Appendix Derived Its Chief Value From A Learned Correspondence Concerning Ancient Sepulchral Rites In Britain Between Sir John Clerk And Roger Gale Which Gordon Here Made Public, Greatly To Their Annoyance. He Apologizes For The Inelegant Illustrations Of His Itinerarium. Gordon Sailed For South Carolina In August 1741, As Secretary To James Glen, F.S.A., The Newly Appointed Governor Of That Province. There He Eventually Prospered. To The Royal Society He Sent An Elaborate Description Of The Natural History Of South Carolina, Which Was Not Read Until 25 May 1758. The Itinerarium, The Essential Handbook Of All Roman Antiquaries Of That Day, Was A Favorite With Sir Walter Scott, Who Has Immortalized It In The Antiquary As That Prized Folio Which Jonathan Oldbuck Undid From Its Brown Paper Wrapper In The Hawes Fly Or Queensferry Diligence.

        Rechtliches und Vernunft-mäßiges Bedencken eines Icti, der unpartheyisch ist, von dem schändlichen Nachdruck andern gehöriger Bücher.

      O. O., 1726. - 29 S. Rückenbroschur aus Goldbrokatpapier. ADB X, 129; Stintzing-L. III/1, S. 122-25, Noten S. 72-74. - Wichtige erste Ausgabe des ersten Werkes zu Grundfragen des geistigen Eigentums und Urheberrechts. Der Frühaufklärer, Jurist ("Icti", d. i. Iuris consulti) und Hallenser Professor wendet sich vehement gegen die Unsitte seiner Zeit, den Nachdruck von Büchern ohne Zustimmung des Autors oder des berechtigten Verlegers. Er fordert ein Verbot aus Fragen der Gerechtigkeit und der wirtschaftlichen Überlebensfähigkeit von Autoren und Verlegern. Mit den Raubdruckern geht Gundling hart ins Gericht, er bezeichnet sie als "Hottentotten", denen ein hässlicher Wurm in der Seele sitzt und empfiehlt ihnen, zu den Tartaren oder nach Irland zu gehen, wo das Plündern und Rauben bekanntlich erlaubt sei. - Sehr gutes Exemplar!

        Haarlem panorama - naar Pieter de Molijn.

      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 werd toen al eindeloos gewandeld, terwijl in andere Europese steden de inwoners wel twee keer uitkeken voordat ze de stadsgrenzen verlieten.Boven het profiel van Haarlem van links naar rechts het wapen van Haarlem, gehouden door twee zeemonsters, het wapen van Holland, een op een gevleugeld paard gezeten vrouw (dichtkunst?), de dorre boom met de wapens van Haarlem op een vaartuig met een zaag op de boeg (symbool voor de verovering van Damiate door een aantal leden van Haarlemse families waarvan de wapenschilden in de boom hangen), vervolgens een op een leeuw gezeten vrouw, die zuilen vasthoudt, als symbool voor de kracht. Daarna het wapen van prins Maurits en tenslotte het oude wapen van Haarlem, gehouden door twee zwaar behaarde mannen.Het cartouche rechtsonder bevat een opdracht aan het stadsbestuur van Haarlem in het Latijn en Grieks door Samuel Ampzing en David van Horenbeeck, daaromheen een aantal voorwerpen waarin we Haarlem zouden moeten herkennen, zoals wapens, harnassen, muziek, muziekinstrumenten, boeken, paletten en penselen, het zwaard van justitie, vlaggen, voorwerpen die te maken hebben met de textielnijverheid en blekerijen, geheel rechtsonder een biervat en een tulp.prijs: ?8.500,- (incl. lijst, BTW margerregeling).

        Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World (Gulliver’s Travels) by Lemuel Gulliver

      London: Benj. Motte 1726 - FIRST EDITION. This is an outstanding untouched example of Teerink’s A edition, the true first edition, preceding the AA and B editions. 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 an immediate success, and the book has remained one of the enduring classics of English literature. Thomas Gay wrote that “from the highest to the lowest it is universally read, from the Cabinet Council to the Nursery.” The influence of Gulliver’s Travels has been vast. The terms Lilliputian, Brobdingnagian, and Yahoo have entered the language. The book inspired countless sequels, adaptations, parodies, and imitations worldwide in print, comics, cartoons, television, stage, and film. The wildly imaginative book became a source of inspiration for authors from Voltaire to Orwell, and it is one of the few works of fiction of its time that is still widely read for pleasure. A fine, unrestored copy of Gulliver’s Travels is a cornerstone of any collection of the greatest books in English literature. Teerink 28 (A edition). Rothschild 2104-6. Printing and the Mind of Man 289. Grolier/English 42. Two volumes. Second state of portrait as usual. Contemporary paneled calf. One joint cracked, another slightly cracked, a few minor flaws, but an unusually fine set. Calf case. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World

      1726. First Edition . 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… London: Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726. Two volumes. Octavo, mid-20th-century full brown morocco, raised bands, all edges gilt. $19,500.First edition, scarce second issue (Teerink “AA”) of Swift’s classic satire—“at once a favorite book of children and a summary of bitter scorn for mankind”—with engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver, six plates (four maps and two plans), as well as numerous woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces. Handsomely bound.A classic ""at once a favorite book of children and a summary of bitter scorn for mankind,"" Swift's masterpiece will ""last as long as the language, because it describes the vices of man in all nations"" (DNB). ""A remarkable feat in the creation of imaginary worlds as a vehicle for satire upon the political and religious establishments of the day"" (Clute & Grant, 914). ""Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame… For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the historical background, 20 have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story"" (PMM 185). ""Of all Swift's writings it best shows the merits of his mind and his gifts of expression… It is important to realize that it could be written only by one who had the highest ideals for human achievement and who despaired of the achieving"" (Baugh et al., 865-66)—although Swift himself expressed this hope for his ""Travells"" to a friend: ""They are admirable Things, and will wonderfully mend the world"" (Rothschild 2104). First published October 28, 1726. This copy is second issue (Teerink AA), published in mid-November 1726, with ""Voyage"" in title to Part IV not in capitals and with all other points.

        Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica

      London: Guil. & Joh. Innys, Regiae Societatis typographos, 1726. Third Edition. Contemporary calf. Very Good. RARE 1726 THIRD EDITION OF NEWTON'S PRINCIPIA, THE LAST EDITION EDITED BY NEWTON AND THE BASIS FOR ALL SUBSEQUENT EDITIONS. One of only 1250 copies printed. "The Principia is generally described as the greatest work in the history of science. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. 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. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equalled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species. It was the final, irrevocable break with a medieval conception based on Greek and Roman cosmology and a scholastic system derived from the medieval interpretation of Aristotle... Newton's universe, almost independent of the spiritual order, ushered in the age of rationalism, scientific determinism and the acceptance of a mechanistic view of nature" (Printing and the Mind of Man 161). On the history and importance of the third edition: Towards the end of his life, Newton "gave one last effort to the Principia. It is clear that he regarded the Principia rather than the Opticks as his masterwork... He worked over the Principia without end to hone its language to a perfect expression of his ideas. Perhaps the appearance of a reprint of the second edition in Amsterdam in 1723 stimulated Newton to put his plan for a new edition into action. Perhaps a serious illness in 1722 reminded him that he could not delay forever. We know only that printing of an edition more sumptuous than either of the others began in the fall of 1723. As editor, Newton had the services of a young member of the Royal Society, Henry Pemberton... In the fall of 1723, Pemberton addressed to him the first of thirty-one communications which stretched over the following two-and-a-half years while the edition passed through the press... Through 1724 and 1725 the edition made its slow but steady progress toward completion with none of the delays that stopped the press during the second edition. Newton dated the preface 12 January 1726. It was the last day of March when Martin Folkes presented a copy 'richly Bound in morocco Leather' to the Royal Society in Newton's name. In all, 1,250 copies were printed..." (Westfall, The Life of Isaac Newton). Provenance: With engraved bookplate of Jeremiah Dixon, almost certainly the Jeremiah Dixon of "Mason-Dixon" fame. Dixon (1733-1777) studied astronomy and mathematics and was a Fellow of the Royal Society before coming to America with Charles Mason to perform the surveying work that would later be known as the "Mason-Dixon" line. Also with small discreet circular stamp on title verso and H2 for the Selbourne Library, the library of the noted twentieth-century book collector Hugh Selbourne. With frontispiece portrait engraving by Vertue and numerous illustrations in text. Complete with the privilege leaf, half-title, dedication leaf, index and ad leaf. London: Guil. & Joh. Innys, Regiae Societatis typographos, 1726. Quarto, contemporary calf. Housed in a spectacular custom full calf box with built-in display cradle. Nearly invisible repairs to joints; flyleaf re-attached. Binding with general scuffing (particularly to spine) and exposure at joints. Joints tender, but holding. Text extremely clean.
