        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 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 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) 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. Church 903; Evans 2775; Holmes 318; Sabin 46474; Streeter Sale 672.

        Manuscript, signed: "Tres quentas de cargo y datta, desde 1o de maio de 1726, hasta fin d agosto de 1728. Que son dos anos y un tercio de obra."

      Arnedo de Marín was the accountant of the Inquisition in Mexico and the collection agent of the Conde de la Enjarada. He here gives the required accounting of income and expenses of the encomienda of the Conde de la Enjarada, Bernardino Carvajal Monctezuma y Vivero, and the collection of the share due to the Crown and now in the coffers of the Holy Office awaiting shipment on the Serrano fleet. The encomienda in question was located in regions of Metepeque and Tacuba. Even as late as the 1720s the encomienda seems to have been generating at least 4000 pesos per annum for the conde. His bloodline included as ancestors both Tezozomoc and Moctezeuma II. Provenance: Maggs, Bibliotheca Americana, part IV, 2912.

        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.

        A Description of the English Province of Carolana. By the Spaniards call'd Florida, and by the French, La Louisiane ... With a large and curious Preface, demonstrating the Right of the English to that Country, and the unjust Manner of the French usurping of it ... The Second Edition

      London: Printed for A. Bettesworth, 1726. 8vo. (7 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches). [54], 122pp. Folding copper-engraved "Map of Carolana and of the River Meschacebe" [i.e. Mississippi]. Contemporary speckled calf, expertly rebacked to style, spine with raised bands in six compartments, black morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt Provenance: W. Windham (early signature); Thomas Conolly (armorial bookplate) A rare and highly important work, with the map which includes the first English depiction of the Mississippi Valley. With the exception of the title, this "second edition" is identical to the first published in 1722. According to William S. Coker, in his introduction to the 1976 University of Florida facsimile of the first edition, the three subsequent "editions" were in fact re-issues of the unsold sheets of the first edition with new updated title pages inserted. This is one of the first English works to describe the Southeast in any detail. Colonel Coxe laid claim to an enormous amount of land in the South thanks to grants made to his father Dr. Daniel Coxe by King Charles II. Coxe published the present work to further his families claims, but also to raise awareness of the huge potential of the area and the dangers posed by French incursions. He did not limit himself to the Carolinas, discussing the lower Mississippi in detail as well. Florida, Georgia and Louisiana are also described. Much of the information, gathered from British hunters and explorers, is published here for the first time. The work is also credited with being the first published proposal of a political confederation of the North American colonies. The map, which is often missing but present here, is of real importance. Drawn up by the Coxe family to illustrate their claims, it is also the first English depiction of the Mississippi valley. It also improved on all previous maps by eliminating the mountain ranges that were often shown as running beside the Mississippi River, as well as correctly fixing the location of the Appalachian and Ozark mountains. It extends as far north as the Great Lakes and includes an inset of the Mississippi Delta at the lower right "A Map of the Mouth of the River Meschacebe". Church 886; Clark I:68; cf.

      Venice, Antonio Bortoli, 1726 - 4to (252 x 185 mm), pp [xvi] 407 [1] [+ pp 325-330 in another setting] 40, with engraved medallion portrait frontispiece and one folding engraved plate; a fine copy, uncut in original boards. £2500 Fine presentation copy, first issue of the second edition (first 1715), with pages 325-330 present in both uncorrected and corrected states. This is a substantially augmented version of Vallisnieri's work on the origin of springs, a classic of geological literature. It contains his demonstration that ground water percolates down and is then passed along impervious strata until there is a break, emerging as springs and rivers. The plate illustrating geological sections of mountains is one of the first of its kind.The first edition appeared as the second part of his Opere diverse published in 1715, and comprised only 87 pages.This edition also contains as an appendix a dissertation on spontaneous generation and embryology, occupying the second part of forty pages.Pages 325-330 are normally found as cancel leaves, due to serious faults in the setting. Vallisnieri recalled as many copies as he could, and had the faulty leaves reprinted by another printer, Pietro Poletti, who also reprinted bifolium a1/4 (title and conjugate), changing the imprint from Bortoli to Poletti, and this is the issue usually found (see Sabia, Opere di Vallisneri, p. 12)Provenance: presentation inscription by Vallisnieri on title: 'All.

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

      London, 1726. Contemporary paneled calf, expertly rebacked, spine richly gilt, leather label. Corners expertly repaired. Some light dampstaining at front of volume, else bright and clean. Very good. "The fullest account of California, the natives and other features, of any of the old voyages" - Cowan. "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 was 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. "On the map of the world, California is shown as an island. Two of the plates represent male and female inhabitants of California" - Cowan.

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

      - Oxford: c. 1726-38. 20" x 14.5", hand-colored. 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 of Oxford University. 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, was an engraver and draftsman from Holland, who came to England and settled in Oxford in 1673 where he became Engraver to the University.

      Leipzig, C.Zunkel for the Author & J.F.Gledisch 1726 - folio, [16], 153, [5] p., title in red and black, one woodcut in the text, 60 engraved plates (numbered I-LVII, with also IIA, XVIA, XLA), the text (on the bad German paper of the time) quite heavily browned, the plates on better paper, not browned but with some light stains, modern marbled boards First edition. SKB3553; Roberts & Trent 134; Wolf II, 540. Published as an independent work, though when Leupold's ten volumes (1724-1739) were put together after his death as Theatrum Machinarum this became vol.VI. The first treatise on bridge building was Hubert Gautier, Traité des ponts 1716-17. Leupold builds on this, but is much more comprehensive, and in particular gives a thorough treatment of the long-span timber bridges commoner in Germany than France. The first 3 plates contain picturesque images of equipment needed for working on and in the water - diving suits, weighted boots, inflatable rafts, canoes and the like. London Bridge (the only London bridge at the time) appears at pl.XXII. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
