        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: Benj[amin] Motte, 1726 - 2 volumes, octavo (189 × 115 mm). Finely bound in late 19th-century olivine morocco by Riviere & Son, rchly gilt spines, gilt French fillet on sides, richly gilt turn-ins, gilt edges. Housed in a custom-made morocco trimmed slipcase. From the library of the distinguished book collector E. Hubert Litchfield, with his armorial bookplate in each volume (sale at Parke-Bernet Galleries, New York, 1951). Letterpress expertly cleaned at the time of binding. A very attractive copy. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Gulliver (second state), 4 maps and 2 plans, wood-engraved head and tail-pieces and initials. First edition, Teerink's A edition with all the necessary points to distinguish it from the two later printings (Teerink AA and B) also dated 1726. Teerink's A was published on 28 October, AA some time in the middle of November, and the B edition in December. The first five editions of Gulliver's Travels (three octavo editions in 1726, one octavo and one duodecimo edition in 1727) were all published by Benjamin Motte. "The clandestine business of getting into print a pseudonymous and satirically explosive political satire entitled Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World (known from the start by its more popular title, Gulliver's Travels) was managed chiefly by Pope, with the assistance of John Gay and Erasmus Lewis. For speed, and to counter the risk of piracy, Motte used five printing houses (those of Edward Say, Henry Woodfall, James Bettenham, William Pearson, and, for the greatest share, that of Jane Ilive). The first edition appeared on 28 October 1726 in two octavo volumes at the price of 8s. 6d., but with unauthorized deletions and insertions by Andrew Tooke (the brother of Benjamin Tooke jun.), and sold out within a week. Gay wrote: 'From the highest to the lowest it is universally read, from the Cabinet-council to the Nursery' Motte followed up with two more octavo editions in 1726 and a duodecimo in 1727, and there was a serialized version which began in the Penny Post (25 November 1726). There were two Dublin editions before the end of 1726, each set up from Motte's first edition. The book sold well in French: the first complete translation appeared at The Hague in January 1727, and an abridged adaptation by the Abbé Desfontaines in Paris in April Swift received from Motte £200 and possibly more from the sales of the book, largely due to Pope's effort at instilling into his friend the principles of 'prudent management' Gulliver's Travels is the book by which Swift is chiefly remembered, and it is the record of his own experience in politics under Queen Anne as an Irishman in what G. B. Shaw called 'John Bull's other island'" (ODNB). A very desirable copy of one of the greatest books in the language.

        Opera. Cura et studio Antonii de Winghe . aucta, ornata, et illustrata.

      Ingolstadt, de la Haye, 1726 - 8 Bll., LVI, 644 S., 27 Bll. Öfters aufgelegte Gesamtausgabe der Werke des französischen Benediktiners und Mystikers Louis de Blois, der auch unter dem Pseudonym Dacrianus publizierte. - François-Louis de Blois [auch Blosius] (1506 - 1566) "became page to the Archduke Clares (afterwards Emperor Charles V) but entered the Abbey of Liessies when only fourteen. Whilst still a novice he was sent to study at the University of Louvain, whence he was recalled in 1527 to become coadjutor to the Abbot, Gilles Gippus, his nomination as such being confirmed by a Bull of Pope Paul III. Three years later, in 1530, he succeeded Gippus as thirty-fourth Abbot of Liessies, and received ordination and the abbatial blessing in the same year. His first care was the cultivation in his abbey of a true monastic spirit and strict discipline, which had somewhat declined under his predecessors. He had hardly settle down to the work of reform before Flanders was immersed in war owing to its invasion by Francis I of France, which occurred in 1537. Liessies, being on the frontier, became in consequence an unsafe habitation and Blosius proposed a move to the priory of Ath, in the interior, but most of his monks, being opposed to his reform, either elected to remain at Liessies or else went to other laxer monasteries. The abbot, however, with three monks, returned to Ath and there he at once restored the primitive observance of the rule. In spite of opposition the reform gained ground and numbers increased rapidly. When a return to Liessies became possible, in 1545, the reform was accepted by those that had remained there and was confirmed by a Bull of Pope Paul III, Blosius next began a restoration and enlargement of the abbey buildings, which were only completed after his death. In 1556 Charles V offered him the Archbishopric of Cambrai and the abbacy of Tournai, both of which he refused in order that he might remain at Liessies. In personal character he was distinguished for his gentleness, his generosity to the poor, his love of chastity, and his devotion to the Mother of God. He was a diligent student, especially of the Scriptures, the works of the Fathers, and the mystical writers of the fourteenth century" (New Advent). - Etw. gebräunt und fleckig. Mehrfach gestempelt.

      Nürnberg Peter Conrad Monath 1726 - Small 4to (21 x 17.5 cm). pp. [4], 226, [13], engraved frontispiece, title page in red and black, engraved title page, 27 engraved folding illustration plates. Later floral boards. Fundamental and richly illustrated work describing Jewish customs, rituals and costumes. This detailed description of Jewish ceremonial customs by Paul Christian Kirchner, a Jewish convert to Christianity, was first published in 1717 and then re-edited by the Christian Hebraist Sebastian Jacob Jugendres, who added his own commentary to the work, in 1724. The new edition included twenty-eight copperplate engravings (nine signed by Johann Georg Puschner) depicting a variety of Jewish rituals, including events marking the life cycle within the synagogue community, such as: circumcision, presentation of the first born, prayer at the synagogue, wedding, purification of the bride, the washing of the brother-in-law's feet, divorce, the feast of reconciliation, death rites, burials, the Sabbath, and various holiday ceremonies. The illustrations are accompanied by four pages of legends that clarify them in detail. The book was intended for a German audience. Kirchner sought to persuade other Jews to follow his lead and convert to Christianity. The copper engravings may have been made in the workshop of Johann Georg Puschner the Elder (1680 – 1749), either by himself or by his son (also called Johann Georg).

      Apus Haeredes Joh. Grossi, Lipsiae [Leipzig] 1726 - 208 pages plus index (complete). In Latin throughout. Fully covered in parchment. Cloth paper. A VERY RARE and MOST pleasing copy of this history of Roman Law from the busy jurist, Christian Hoffmann. Especially taking the book's age into account, this book is wonderful to hold, read, and to turn the pages. The boards have wear, scuffing and marks. They are benevolent, venerable. They are steady and sound. There is some wear to the spine seams, but the book's security and facility are unaffected. The contents are in excellent condition. There are, of course, age related marks, areas of tanning and foxing. In general, and by far, the contents are healthy, tidy, well maintained and preserved. The chapter, "Fragmenta Edicti Perpetui in Corpore Juris Romano-Justinianei Dispersa, ad mentem vir. clariss. G Vil. Ranchini, Jac. Gothofredi, Gerardi Noodtii aliorumque Collecta Atque Emendata", have antique ink annotations that add considerably to the character of the book. The pages are clear, very assured and certain, confident and delectably ancient. fk [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The four years voyages of Capt. George Roberts; being a series of uncommon events, which befell him in a voyage to the islands of the Canaries, Cape de Verde, and Barbadoes, from whence he was bound to the coast of Guiney. The manner of his being taken by three pyrate ships, commanded by Low, Russell, and Spriggs, who, after having plundered him, and detained him 10 days, put him aboard his own sloop, without provisions, water, &c. and with only two boys, one of eighteen, and the other of eight years of age. The hardships he endur'd for above 20 days, 'till he arriv'd at the island of St. Nicholas, from whence he was blown off to sea (before he could get any sustenance) without his boat and biggest boy, whom he had sent ashore; and after fo

      London: Printed for A. Bettesworth at the Red Lyon in Pater-Noster-Row and J. Osborn at the Ship at St. Saviour's Dock-Head near Horsely-Down 1726 - First edition. 8vo., vi, 458pp., folding map, 4 engraved plates, contemporary calf, neat repairs to joints, lightly rubbed, an excellent copy. An imaginary voyage, originally regarded as a genuine account, but later regarded as fictitious and possibly by Daniel Defoe. The Defoe theory is now not widely held, but it is believed that the book is a work of fiction. In this first-person narrative, George Roberts is an English slaver. In 1721 he signs on as chief mate for a voyage to Virginia via Madeira and Barbados. Roberts falls out with the captain however, and sest out on his own for Guinea. He is captured by pirates and set adrift in a sloop which wrecks on St. John, one of the Cape Verde Islands. He remained there for two years before returning to England in 1726. The narrative includes much information on the Cape Verde Islands. European Americana 726/180; Howgego V, R19; Moore 483; Sabin 71888. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A new dictionary, Spanish and English, and English and Spanish, much more copious than any other hitherto extant. Laying down the true etymology of words . Diccionario nuevo español y ingles.

      J. Darby, A. Bettsworth [et al.], London 1726 - First quarto edition (first published as a folio in 1705-06), and second edition overall; pp. vii, [1], [806], [1] ads; title-p. printed in red and black; lexicon in triple column; title toned lengthwise along the gutter, prelims trimmed close at the top, but never affecting letterpress, recent quarter brown calf, new label on spine lettered in gilt (not quite aligned), all else very good in a new binding. Stevens, "probably an Irishman" (DNB) was an officer in the English army with some military experience in Ireland, and perhaps Portugal; his father was purportedly on the staff of the English ambassador to Spain. "This 1726 edition is the first dictionary in the history of Spanish and English bilingual lexicography not to share the volume in which it is contained with some other work, such as a grammar or dialogues . Because of the uncritical methods of borrowing from Minsheu, Oudin, Aldrete, Covarrubias, and sundry reference works, because of the long-winded definitions, and because of the failure to show the gender of Spanish vocabulary noun entries, while Minsheu furnished a perfectly adequate treatment of them, one would be hard put to say that much of a lexicographical advance had been made during the 106 years between Minsheu's dictionary and Stevens' " (Steiner, Two Centuries of Spanish and English Bilingual Lexicography, p. 58 ff.).

      Black sharkskin (spine slightly damaged), with a silver centerpiece depicting a VOC-vessel and two silver clasps with the monogram VOCD (VOC chamber of Delft), at both covers. With the original silver pencil connecting the clasps and at the same time functioning as a catch. Gilt edges. 12°. Almanack printed in black and red. Before the almanac three marbled and three blanc flyleafs. With seven leafs of waxcoated paper, interleafed with blancs. At the back a pocket, made of brocate paper and green silk. Beautiful copy of a rare VOC-almanac. Almanacs of this kind were made as special gifts for the Rotterdam and Delft chamber of the Dutch East India Company. The printed almanac is combined with specially prepared paper on which one could write with the silver pencil. These writings could be removed afterwards, to be able to use the pages again. This technique was used in the 16th and 17th century for note-books and sketch-books. Artists like Rembrandt and Goltzius used them to make a removable draft for a drawing or print. Usually the printed almanac was removed from the binding after the year had passed, leaving a usable note book. An entry in the diary of the Amsterdam silversmith Johan George Holtzhey (1726-1808) reveals that the silver work for both the Delft and Rotterdam chamber of the VOC were made by him. Each year he made about twelve of these almanacs by order of the chambers of Delft and Rotterdam, which were meant as gifts for friends and relations of the directors. About 20 of these VOC-almanacs are known in public collections, but only two of them still contain the original calendar. A12.B0094. B0094

        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).

        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..."""
