        The artificer's looking-glass:

      8vo., in half-sheets, (8) 62pp., without the advertisement leaf, upper margins cropped up to p.24 with loss or partial loss of several page numbers (but in no case affecting the text), bound in early 20th century black half roan over marbled boards, neatly rebacked to match, spine gilt lettered. Sometime in the library of The Surveyors' Institution with its 1908 bookplate on front pastedown but with no other obvious marks of ownership. This seems to be a graphic portrait of London tradesmen, their grievances and temptations, written, from a moral point of view, as if it was a confession to "Mother Art" herself. The grievances are, of course, about wages and working conditions, the temptations (by which so many tradesmen are ruined) including drink, sex, gambling and debt. "The intention of this treatise", writes the author, "is to paint virtue and vice in their proper colours and distinct lights". It is relevant also to note that Chester Noyes Greenough consulted this book, but rejected it for not matching his criteria, in his Bibliography of the Theophrastan character in English. (p.189).

        A playne and godly Exposytion or Declaration of the Commune Crede (Which in the Latin tonge is called Symbolum Apostolorum) And of the .x. Commaundements of goddes law

      N.P. 1726 - A little catechism of Erasmus on the Apostle's Creed and the Ten Commandments, requested by Sir Thomas Boleyn, father of Anne Boleyn's, and first published in March of 1533 in Basel under the title: Dilucida et pia explanatio symboli quod apostolorum. Explanatio symboli apostolorum. The book was then "quickly submitted to Cranmer and translated into English by William Marshall, a Lutheran lawyer was also published an English version of Marsilius of Padua's Defensor pacis (1533) and Lorenzo Valla's Donation of Constantine (1534) as part of a print campaign to support the supremacy. Yet Erasmus' writings, indeed the doctrine described in the Explanatio symboli itself, still had the potential to speak to traditionalists, including men like the king's cousin, the theologian Reginald Pole (1500-1558), whom the regime wanted to win over." (Pollnitz, Aysha. Princely Education in Modern Britain). The book offered here is an 18th century reprint of the original 1533 English translation, done in Roman rather than the original Gothic type. Very rare. We could locate only four copies worldwide. The publication date was probably sometime between 1720-1730. 8vo (20 x 13cm), 187 (i.e. 178) leaves. "H.M." inscribed on title-page. A very good clean copy. Bound in later half calf over marbled boards, rubbed.

        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 ruïne 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).

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD BY WAY OF THE GREAT SOUTH SEA, PERFORM'D IN THE YEARS 1719, 20, 21, 22...

      London, 1726. Contemporary dark brown calf, gilt, expertly rebacked with original label preserved. Very good and clean. First edition of "the fullest account of California, the natives and other features, of any of the old voyages" (Cowan). Shelvocke was engaged in a privateering expedition against Spanish shipping on the Pacific Coast of America. He sailed as far north as Baja California, and two of the plates depict Indians of Baja. He also reported gold in the region. The folding map depicts the world in two hemispheres with the route of the voyage traced. An important English Pacific voyage. "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 accused 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. HILL 1557.

        A compleat body of divinity in two hundred and fifty expository lectures on the Assembly's shorter catechism wherein the doctrines of the Christian religion are unfolded ... and a great light thereby reflected on the present age.

      Boston: Pr. by B. Green & S. Kneeland for B. Eliot & D. Henchman Folio (35 cm, 13.75"). [2], iv, 3, [3], 666, 581–914, [2] pp. (pagination erratic, skips 160–76); complete as issued.. 1726 First edition of the Rev. Willard's collected sermons on the Westminster Shorter Catechism, originally delivered as monthly lectures over 20 years' time. This posthumously printed volume opens with an account of the author, written by the Rev. Ebenezer Pemberton; Willard, one of the last of the great orthodox Puritan preachers of New England, was a clergyman noted for his => opposition to the Salem witchcraft trials and for serving as => acting president of Harvard between the tenures of Increase Mather and John Leverett. Evans notes that this is "the first folio volume, other than Laws, and => the largest work up to this time printed in the United States." This was a subscription printing, and includes Benjamin Franklin's father and brother, among other dignitaries, in its list of names; the sheets came from several different presses, and thus "it has fallen out . . . that the Pages for a considerable way, are numbered over again" (p. 666). The title-page is printed in red and black. The binding features => a very unusual 18th-century repair job: to reinforce the joints, an early hand stitched along either side of the front joint and part way down the back. Provenance: Title-page with inked ownership inscription of T. White, dated 1726, and with inked presentation inscription to Susanna White, dated 1782. Front pastedown with inked inscription of Timothy Badger, 1782; also with 19th-century institutional bookplate and presentation inscription. Contemporary mottled sheep framed and panelled in blind fillets with corner fleurons, a blind roll around the central panel; small scuffs, extremities rubbed, joints cracked and fragile, with early sewn repairs as above. Front free endpaper partially separated. Inscriptions as above; preface with additional early inked inscription in upper margin and inked numeral in lower margin, a very slim "mag strip" in one gutter margin and no other institutional markings. Pages age-toned and offset with varying degrees of spotting and staining; some corners dog-eared. Three leaves each with short tear from upper margin, just touching text without loss; a few leaves crumpled without tearing. First portion of volume with intermittent early inked marginalia, one note partially shaved. A milestone of early American printing and an interesting copy.

        Arte de lengua mexicana ... corregido ... por el Br. D. Antonio de Olmedo y Torre.

      Puebla: por Diego Fernãdez Leon y por su original en la Impr. de Francisco Xavier de Morales y Salazar Small 4to (19 cm.; 7.5"). [2], 54 [i.e., 53] ff.. 1726 The third edition of this => uncommon and significant work on the language of the Aztecs, the first having appeared in 1689 and a second in 1693. A third edition of 1716 is listed in several bibliographies, but it is a ghost: The "2" in the date of this 1726 edition is often indistinct on the title-page, causing some to read it as "1716." Vázquez, a native of Puebla, was a professor of the "Mexican language" (i.e., Nahuatl) at the Royal College of San Juan and San Pedro; his local "take" is discernable here. 20th-century vellum over boards, vellum a little sprung and lightly soiled. Some upper and lower margins closely trimmed costing catchwords, signature signs, or portions of folio numbers, and just touching the base of one very large handsome tailpiece. Small ownership stamp in lower margin of verso of title. In all, a good copy of a difficult to obtain indigenous language book.

        RATIO DISCIPLINÆ 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. Contemporary American brown morocco, tooled in blind. Minor spotting, occasional small tears in margins, else very good. Provenance: Jno. Cotton (inscriptions, variously dated 1729 and 1733); Rev. Chandler Robbins; Jesse Harlow Jr. (inscription, dated 1800, noting that he bought the book at the sale of Rev. Robbins' books). In a half morocco slipcase. 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' 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 has 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.

        Catalogue de la Bibliotheque du Chasteau de Rambouillet, appartenant a son altesse serenissime Monseigneur le Comte de Toulouse

      Woodcut arms on title. 7 p.l. (the first a blank), 620, [30] pp. 8vo, cont. polished marbled calf (expertly rebacked with the orig. spine laid-down), spine gilt, red morocco lettering pieces on spine. Paris: G. Martin, 1726. The second of the two rare privately printed catalogues of the library of the Comte de Toulouse, (1678-1737), the natural, legitimized, son of Louis XIV and Madame de Montespan. Following his marriage in 1723 to Marie-Sophie-Victoire de Noailles, he retired to his Château de Rambouillet, southwest of Paris, where he sought to avoid the intrigues of the court. He lived in great splendor, rivalling the court at Versailles. The 1708 catalogue (with a 1716 Supplement) is first catalogue of a private library to be issued in France. The Comte de Toulouse formed an important library of about 5000 titles. "Ce catalogue, il n'était destiné qu'au service de la bibliothèque, et il n'a pas été vendu. If fut rédigé avec soin et avec beaucoup de détail par Gabriel Martin, le libraire le plus instruit de l'époque."-Gustave Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 611. As he explains in his preface, Martin wanted to make the library at Rambouillet, "that redoubt of the muses," as accessible as possible to the Prince and the Princess and their guests. He grouped the books together by subject and printed in the margins the shelf mark and exact position of each volume (e.g. "190 F"). Fine copy. A supplement was issued in 1734; it rarely appears. ❧ Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Books Auctions...1643-1830, 26. Peignot, p. 127.

        Arte de lengua mexicana ... corregido ... por el Br. D. Antonio de Olmedo y Torre.

      Puebla: por Diego Fernãdez Leon y por su original en la Impr. de Francisco Xavier de Morales y Salazar Small 4to (19 cm.; 7.5"). [2], 54 [i.e., 53] ff.. 1726 The third edition of this => uncommon and significant work on the language of the Aztecs, the first having appeared in 1689 and a second in 1693. A third edition of 1716 is listed in several bibliographies, but it is a ghost: The "2" in the date of this 1726 edition is often indistinct on the title-page, causing some to read it as "1716." Vázquez, a native of Puebla, was a professor of the "Mexican language" (i.e., Nahuatl) at the Royal College of San Juan and San Pedro; his local "take" is discernable here. 20th-century vellum over boards, vellum a little sprung and lightly soiled. Some upper and lower margins closely trimmed costing catchwords, signature signs, or portions of folio numbers, and just touching the base of one very large handsome tailpiece. Small ownership stamp in lower margin of verso of title. In all, a good copy of a difficult to obtain indigenous language book.
