Als mede de vacantien, het varen der trekschuyten en beurtschepen, het vertreck der posten en postwagens. Nevens de maens op- en ondergang. Amsterdam, Erfg. van de Wed. C. Stichter, [1787].

      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.

      1726 - Nelson's Abridgment Nelson, William [b. 1653]. An Abridgment of the Common Law: Being a Collection of the Principal Cases Argued and Adjudged in the Several Courts of Westminster-Hall. The Whole Being Digested in a Clear and Alphabetical Method, Under Proper Heads, With Several Divisions and Numbers Under Each Title, For the More Ready Finding and Judgment or Resolution of the Law Cases. Whereby the Opinion and Judgment of the Courts May be Seen in an Exact Series of Time, And What Alterations Have Been Made in the Law by Subsequent Statutes and Judgments, Brought Down to the Year 1725. [London]: Printed by E. and R. Nutt and R. Gosling, 1725-1726. Three volumes. [xviii], 706; [xiv], 1304; [xii], 576, [111] pp. Folio (13-3/4" x 9"). Later three-quarter calf over textured cloth, lettering pieces and rules to spines, endpapers renewed. (Volume 1, bound at a later date, is a very close match, but not exact.) Light rubbing and a few minor scuffs to extremities. Faint dampstaining, dampspotting and early owner annotations and signatures to preliminaries, interiors otherwise fresh. * Only edition. Nelson intended this work to serve the needs of the student and lawyer, but he attempted to abridge cases with such "clearness and perspicuity" that they could be understood by the "common reader" (Preface). He assumed it would be used in conjunction with the abridgments of Brooke and Fitzherbert, so he did not include cases that are in those two works. Nelson was a versatile and gifted legal writer. In addition to his abridgment he published a notable JP Manual, treatises on forest law and evidence and editions of Dalton's Countrey Justice, Blount's Nomo Lexicon and Manwood's Laws of the Forest.

Shewing the True Etymologie and Derivation of the One, The Nature, Antiquity, And Original of the Other. With Sundry Emergent Observations, Both Pleasant and Profitable to be Known of Kentish-Men and Others, Especially Such as Are Studious, Either of the Ancient Custome, Or the Common Law of This Kingdome. By (A Well-Wisher to Both). London: Printed for F. Gyles, 1726. [xiv], 136, [4], 216, [8] pp. Copperplate frontispiece. Quarto (10-1/2" x 8"). Nineteenth-century morocco, gilt fillets and dentelles to boards, gilt spine with raised bands and lettering piece, gilt edges, marbled endpapers, detached ribbon marker laid in. Moderate rubbing to extremities, small chip to foot of spine, corners bumped and worn, early armorial bookplate (of Thomas Hall) to verso of title page, which is printed in red and black. Woodcut head and tail-pieces, text printed with wide margins. Moderate toning to text, faint dampspotting in places, internally clean. A handsome copy * Second and final edition. Gavelkind is a form of land tenure unique to Kent (and its environs) in which land descends equally to the decedent's sons. It was common during the Saxon era, but was gradually supplanted by primogeniture after 1066. Produced during the first wave of modern English legal scholarship, Somner's pioneering work was the first study of gavelkind, and one of the first important studies of early English law. Philological in orientation, it is a history of gavelkind and an analysis of its forms. Texts of significant documents are included. He also goes beyond his subject in one section to discuss the law of succession to chattels. Somner, a pupil of Causubon, was an ecclesiastical lawyer and historian of Anglo-Saxon law and literature who is best known for his pioneering Dictionarium Saxonico-Latino-Anglicum (1659).

        Acts of Assembly passed in the Province of New-York, from 1691-1725. Examined and compared with the originals in the secretary's office

      William Bradford, New York 1726 - (12 1/4 x 7 5/8 inches). [10], 124 [i.e., 128], 121-252, 261-319, [1, blank] pp. [mispaginated, as issued]. Woodcut arms of King George I on the title. (Head of title clipped without loss of text and expertly repaired). Expertly bound to style in half calf over period marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, red morocco lettering piece Provenance: Richard Price (early owner's signature on title and manuscript additions to the final page of the table) An early New York imprint from the press of William Bradford, the "pioneering printer of the English middle colonies" (DAB) and first printer of New York. Bradford (1663-1752) originally settled in Pennsylvania, where he began operating a printing press in 1685 and a bookstore in 1688. Controversies within the Quaker community, with Bradford supporting the dissident George Keith, led to the temporary seizure of his type and paper in 1692, and in 1693 he moved to New York. The present acts of Assembly cover the legislation passed between 1691 and 1725. Laws here include acts "for quieting and settling the Disorders that have lately happened within this Province" (1691), "for restraining and punishing Privateers and Pyrates" (1693 and 1698), and "against Jesuites and Popish Priests" (1700), as well as numerous acts "for Regulating Slaves" and one for "Baptizing them" (1706). Other Acts include those relating to Queen Anne's War, as well as the continuing conflicts with the French and Indians. A major early New York imprint, from the press of its first printer.

        The artificer's looking-glass: containing, an exact and diverting representation of the lives, conduct, characters, and various humours of the following professors; as it was taken from their own mouths, in their several respective addresses to mother art. Viz. Limners, stone carvers, glass blowers, frame-work knitters, taylors, hatters, carpenters, joyners, brick-layers, sawyers, plaisterers, glaziers, weavers, wine-coopers, potters, dancing-masters, pipe-makers, watch-makers, &c. By Edmund Carter, Philo-Ars

      London: printed for J. Wilford, at the Three Flower de-Luces, in Little-Britain. 1726. 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. Only edition: rare (COPAC & OCLC find copies at only 6 libraries: BL + Guildhall + Columbia + Huntington + Congress + Princeton). Hanson 3577 (the BL copy). 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).

        TO THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL...[caption title]

      [London. 1726].. [2]pp. printed on the recto of two folio sheets. Worn along edges, some small tears and separations on folds neatly repaired. Overall good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. This document, probably printed for limited circulation to some British government body (possibly the Privy Council), publishes three petitions to the Crown relating to the governorship of Pennsylvania. Sir William Keith, who was appointed lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania by the original proprietor, William Penn, shortly before Penn's death, gained considerable popularity with the Assembly and the artisan class in the colony, all of whom wished for greater freedom in conducting their affairs. The merchant class was generally aligned with the interests of the proprietors. Keith served as governor from 1717 to 1726, when the tensions in the colony erupted in riots, which Keith did little to suppress. The Penn family immediately sought to replace Keith with one of their Loyalists, Patrick Gordon. In the first of these three petitions, William Penn's grandson, Springett Penn, implores the King to appoint him to the governorship so Gordon might continue his family's interests. The second petition, from Alexander Spottswood on behalf of William Keith, encourages the Crown to allow Keith to continue, arguing "that nothing less than an extraordinary Portion of Prudence could enable a Governour to conduct your Majesty's subjects there in that Peace and Tranquillity which Sir William Keith has all along done." The last petition is from a group of Keith supporters, urging both an adequate pension for the former governor and the extension of his office. It is likely that this document, presenting the opposing petitions, was printed in London in 1726, at the point when news of the disruptions in Pennsylvania reached there. Since these are petitions to the King and the affair was dealt with hastily, it is probable that it was printed for circulation to the Privy Council or the Council on Foreign Plantations to advise the Crown. They did, removing Keith and appointing Gordon. Keith remained in the colony until 1728, when he returned to England. Business reverses landed him in debtors prison in 1734, and he died there in 1740. An important document, not listed on OCLC, not in Cohen, and very rare. DAB X, pp.292-93.

        TO THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.[caption title].

      [London. ]. 1726 - [2]pp. printed on the recto of two folio sheets. Worn along edges, some small tears and separations on folds neatly repaired. Overall good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. This document, probably printed for limited circulation to some British government body (possibly the Privy Council), publishes three petitions to the Crown relating to the governorship of Pennsylvania. Sir William Keith, who was appointed lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania by the original proprietor, William Penn, shortly before Penn's death, gained considerable popularity with the Assembly and the artisan class in the colony, all of whom wished for greater freedom in conducting their affairs. The merchant class was generally aligned with the interests of the proprietors. Keith served as governor from 1717 to 1726, when the tensions in the colony erupted in riots, which Keith did little to suppress. The Penn family immediately sought to replace Keith with one of their Loyalists, Patrick Gordon. In the first of these three petitions, William Penn's grandson, Springett Penn, implores the King to appoint him to the governorship so Gordon might continue his family's interests. The second petition, from Alexander Spottswood on behalf of William Keith, encourages the Crown to allow Keith to continue, arguing "that nothing less than an extraordinary Portion of Prudence could enable a Governour to conduct your Majesty's subjects there in that Peace and Tranquillity which Sir William Keith has all along done." The last petition is from a group of Keith supporters, urging both an adequate pension for the former governor and the extension of his office. It is likely that this document, presenting the opposing petitions, was printed in London in 1726, at the point when news of the disruptions in Pennsylvania reached there. Since these are petitions to the King and the affair was dealt with hastily, it is probable that it was printed for circulation to the Privy Council or the Council on Foreign Plantations to advise the Crown. They did, removing Keith and appointing Gordon. Keith remained in the colony until 1728, when he returned to England. Business reverses landed him in debtors prison in 1734, and he died there in 1740. An important document, not listed on OCLC, not in Cohen, and very rare. DAB X, pp.292-93.

And the several postures of the salute with the half-pike, either from order, or on the march, are explained, and by proper figures represented, with the several postures, use and exercise of the halbert, illustrated by proper figures and directions (not to be found in any other author) together with the drawing up of a regiment, and posting the officers for review, and forming hollow squares.

A very good crisp copy. First and only edition: really quite rare. (Copies located at only 10 libraries in ESTC & OCLC of which only Cambridge + Guildhall + H.A.C. in UK. Not in BL). The author was Adjutant and Clerk to the Honourable Artillery Company. Two of the large folding plates show soldiers training with the half-pike and the halbert. * i.e. John 1st baron Gretton of Stapleford, 1867-1947, brewer and politician, who was a director of England's leading brewery, Bass, Ratcliff and Gretton of Burton upon Trent. 'Despite his Quaker descent, Gretton joined the Staffordshire volunteer regiment when young and maintained a lifelong devotion to soldiering. Known as ?'Colonel?' Gretton, he commanded the 6th battalion of the North Staffordshires (1900?-07), and was their honorary colonel (1912?-32). Military recruitment, training, and inspection consumed his energies in 1914?-18. Gretton was an archetype of the reactionary tory brewer.' [Richard Davenport-Hines in ODNB].

        The complete seedsman: shewing, the best and easiest method for raising and cultivating every sort of seed belonging to a kitchen and flower-garden. With necessary instructions for sowing of berries, mast, and seeds of ever-greens, forest-trees, and such as are proper for improving of land. Written at the command of a person of honour. By Benj. Townsend, formerly gardener to the Lord Middleton. To which is added, a catalogue of the seeds, plants, &c. mention'd in this tract, and to be found in a seedsman's shop. Recommended by R. Bradley, F.R.S. With an appendix out of Switzer's New Book of Gardening>; likewise a short extraction out of Moses Cook's Discourse of Forest-trees>

      London: printed, and Dublin re-printed by S. Powell, for R. Norris, at the Indian-Queen in Dames-street, and T. Whitehouse, under the Free-Masons-Coffee-house, on Essex-bridge. 1726. 8vo., viii + 160pp., 2pp. of Preface rather dust-soiled, old ms notes in ink on final blank leaf listing flower varieties, contemporary calf with minor wear, without spine label. A very good copy. The extremely rare Dublin printing of which ESTC & OCLC + Henrey together locate only 2 other copies - at BL + Cashel. The London 1st. (also 1726) is less rare but nonetheless ESTC & OCLC + Henrey locate copies at only 9 libraries altogether (viz. Bodleian + All Souls + Glasgow + Lindley + NLW and Congress + Dumbarton Oaks + Chicago Botanic + Missouri Botanical). A charming little book dedicated by Townsend to the Honourable Sir Thomas Coke. Townsend's claim to being 'formerly gardener to the Lord Middleton' refers to Thomas Willoughby, 1st Baron Middleton (ca. 1670-1729), second son of Francis Willoughby, F.R.S., the celebrated naturalist and friend of John Ray. Thomas Willoughby succeeded his brother as second baronet in 1688, and was created Baron Middleton of Middleton, Warwickshire, in 1712. He was elected a F.R.S. in 1693. Townsend's own identity has been traced moderately successfully by Henrey although she also flags up some uncertainties about his authorship. 'In a treatise by Richard Bradley published in 1725', she writes, 'the year before the appearance of The complete seedsman>, a Townsend is referred to by Bradley, thus: 'Mr. Benjamin Townsend, a surveyor at Mr. Whittmill's, an ingenious gardiner at Hoxton ... his works convince me of his capacity of doing great things; and of his considering how to contract the expence which is no less commendable; his designs shew us his judgment in preserving and even improving the natural beauties of an irregular ground, especially where there is any advantage to be made of wood and water, which are two of the most delightful furnitures of a grand garden, where they are managed with skill, and especially in the distribution of water, which he so well knows how to turn to the advantage of land; at the same time he gives us the diversion of it in jets and water-falls'. From this there seems little doubt that Benjamin Townsend the surveyor, and the Townsend who appears as the author of The complete seedsman>, are one and the same man. A second edition of The complete seedsman> was published in 1738. The title-page of this edition reads The complete seedsman's monthly calendar ... By Richard Bradley, F.R.S.> Townsend's name is now omitted from the title-page, and an advertisement signed 'The bookseller' contains the following statement: 'The faults which escaped the press in the former, are, in this edition, carefully corrected; and the whole piece has been revised, and in many places improved, by the late author, Dr. Bradly. This it has been thought proper to intimate in justice to his memory, the name of Mr. Townsend, a gardener, being only put to it by the author to do him a service, by bringing him into business.' The bookseller, W. Mears, who published both editions of The complete seedsman>, may have received the above information from Richard Bradley himself. The two men were well acquainted, Mears being the publisher of a number of Bradley's many publications. However, when the second edition appeared in 1738 Bradley was dead and perhaps Townsend also. Thus, it is possible that Mears decided to print the name of Richard Bradley, F.R.S., on the title-page, not so much 'in justice to his memory' as in the knowledge that this celebrated writer's name would be better for the sale of the book than that of the little-known gardener Benjamin Townsend. In 1750 The complete seedsman's monthly calendar> was appended to an edition of The farmer's instructor>. Here the work is published anonymously, with a statement on the title-page reading: 'By a gardener'.' [Blanche Henrey, British botanical and horticultural literature before 1800>, II, pp.341-2].

        The Religion of Nature Delineated

      London: Printed by Samuel Palmer... and Sold by B. Lintot, W. and J. Innys, J. Osborn and T. Longman, and J. Batley,, 1726. Quarto (241 × 189 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, red speckled edges. Wood-engraved title vignette showing a printing house, head and tail-piecs and initial letters. Joints partially split but sound, spine rubbed, but an attractive, unsophisticated copy. Second trade edition, of note for the fact that the eighteen year old Benjamin Franklin, newly arrived in London and recently employed at Samuel Palmer's "famous printing-house", worked as a compositor on this edition. It is the primary work of the moral philosopher William Wollaston (1659-1724). "His one major work was The Religion of Nature Delineated, which he had privately printed in 1722, and then published shortly before his death in 1724... This was a major success: some 10,000 copies were sold within a very few years, and it went through many editions... [it] argued for the identification between moral good and evil with what was right and wrong; truth was the basis of happiness, and truth was to be discovered through the operation of 'right reason'" (ODNB).

        The Universal Passion. Satire I-V, and "Satire the Last"

      London: J. Roberts, 1726. First editions. Folio. Contemporary calf, spine with gilt morocco label. Joints rubbed, ffep loose, pages of Satire the Last toned, still an attractive copy in original condition. Bookplate of John Darner, possibly the profligate husband (committed suicide in 1776) of Anne Seymour Darner, sculptress and friend of Horace Walpole; and the bookplate of the notable bibliophile and Oxford don, John Sparrow. First editions. Folio. John Sparrow's Copy. "The great achievement of Young's early career" (ODNB) and an important influence on Pope, the seven satires entitled The Universal Passions were published as separate folios between 1725 and 1728 and were collected in a second edition in 1728 under the title Love of Fame. Satire VI, not present here, was actually printed in 1728, after "Satire the Last," in 1726. Laid in is a retained copy of a Typed Letter, unsigned from 12 May, 1955, almost certainly by JOHN SPARROW, to an Edward Young scholar regarding the seemingly strange absence of Satire VI in this contemporary binding: "It occurs to me that, since the seventh satire is called "Satire the Last" and is not numbered [underlined phrase] and is anterior in date (1726) to Satires V (1727) and VI (which I understand was published un 1728, though it is missing from my copy), it may be that Young wrote and published the last Satire, either intending the whole poem to consist of five Satires only ... or without having made up his mind whether or not he was going to add further Satires ... It is to be noted that Satires V and VI are the only ones which carry an actual title ("On Women") on their title page. I would suggest, on this hypothesis, that the original owner of my copy bought the Satires as they came out and had them bound up in 1727, fondly supposing that he had the complete set; later, Young published Satire VI, to be interposed before 'Satire the Last.'" The contents of this fascinating copy are as follows: YOUNG, Edward. THE UNIVERSAL PASSION. Satire I. To his Grace the Duke of Dorset ... London: printed for J. Roberts in Warwick-Lane. 1725. FIRST EDITION. Folio, pp. [iv], 15. Foxon Y122. THE UNIVERSAL PASSION. Satire II ... London: printed for J. Roberts in Warwick-Lane. 1725. FIRST EDITION, Folio, pp. 17, bound without the half title.

        A NEW SYSTEM OF AGRICULTURE. Being A Complete Body of Husbandry and Gardening In all the Parts of them. Viz. Husbandry in the FIELD, And Its Several Improvements...In FIVE BOOKS...

      for Tho. Woodward,: London: , 1726. London: for Tho. Woodward, 1726. First edition. Laurence's "most ambitious literary project..." (Henrey p. 421). With a handsome etched frontispiece by van de Gucht showing the Prince of Wales's Richmond Lodge or Ormonde Lodge. The work is dedicated to the Princess of Wales, later Queen Caroline to George II, who would eventually improve Richmond Lodge with Charles Bridgeman.. The lodge no longer exists. (Henrey,p. 421 ). Laurence (sometimes spelled Lawrence), who bears the distinction of having written the first original eighteenth century treatise on gardening, THE CLERGY-MAN'S RECREATION, 1714, was rector at Yelverton in Northhamptonshire where he turned an unpromising patch into a thriving fruit garden over the course of 20 years. The first book in this ambitious work concerns every aspect of agriculture from dung to brickmaking. Book II describes the characteristics and uses of a great variety of forest trees, timber trees, evergreens and flowering shrubs, all suitable for growing in England without "housing". Book Three is about the subject for which the author is perhaps best known, fruit culture. Book IV : the kitchen garden. Book V is devoted to the flower garden and includes "A complete catalogue of Flowers great and small perannual (sic) or annual, usually known or propagated in England, either in the naked Ground or Hotbed." With seven engraved printer's ornaments by Francis Hoffman. Henrey 945; Hunt 466; Johnson, A HISTORY OF ENGLISH GARDENING p. 156. Folio ( 34.4 x 21.2 cm); (xxiv) + 456 (i.e. 452) pp. + etched frontispiece + 2 copperplate engravings (with 3 impressions); with 7 engraved printer's ornaments by F. Hoffman. Original full leather boards with double gilt ruling, very skillfully rebacked in full leather with gilt ruled raised bands and what is probably the original gilt-lettered title piece; original front pastedown preserved with two bookplates (Hare of Docking, Esq. and L.K. Elmhurst); free endpaper and following blank recent and well-matched; much faded old damp-staining (washed?) appearing in upper margins of some pages, only occasionally appearing in text, at rear pages. The name Charles Martin written in faded ink on title page. A well preserved copy.

Moderate edge wear, soiling, and rubbing to wrappers, corners worn.

Half title present but partly utilized as front pastedown, torn and still partially adhered to the front wrapper. Very good. A rare later work from the pen of eminent American minister Cotton Mather as attributed by Holmes. A contemplation of aging, especially as it relates to the afterlife. The subtitle reads "Humbly Commended and Presented unto Them, whose Arrival to, or near, SIXTY, ranks them among, the AGED." Mather was sixty-three years old at the time. One of the more difficult to find of Mather titles, with only seven copies reported in OCLC. Holmes locates eight copies, but two of them are imperfect. EVANS 2768. HOLMES 155. SABIN 27834, 46346.

        Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World

      London: for Benj. Motte,, 1726. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships. 2 volumes, octavo (191 × 119 mm). Contemporary speckled calf skilfully rebacked and refurbished to style, richly gilt spines, dark red morocco labels, two-line gilt border on sides; housed in a custom-made plush-lined brown cloth flat-back box. Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver (second state, as called for), 4 maps and 2 plans. Marginal dampstaining to a dozen leaves in volume I, and at lower fore-corner of first gathering in volume II, a few old pale ink splashes to B5-8 in volume I. A very handsome set. 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 12mo 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). The true first edition of Gulliver's Travels is one of the rarest and most desirable books in the English language.
