        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.

        A GOOD OLD AGE. A BRIEF ESSAY ON THE GLORY OF AGED PIETY

      Boston: Printed by S. Kneeland and T. Green, for S. Gerrish, 1726.. [4],42pp. Half title. Contemporary marbled wrappers, sewn. Moderate edge wear, soiling, and rubbing to wrappers, corners worn. Near-contemporary ink ownership signature on front pastedown, titlepage, and last text page, slightly later gift inscription on verso of half title, minor foxing and toning. 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.

        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. - [2],iv,10,207,[3]pp., including contents leaf. Contemporary calf, tooled in blind, neatly rebacked in matching style. Some light scattered soiling, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. 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). EVANS 2775. SABIN 46474. HOLMES 318. STREETER SALE 672. CHURCH 903.

        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.. [8],xxxii,[4],468pp. plus five plates (three folding), including one map. Contemporary paneled calf, expertly rebacked, spine richly gilt, leather label. Corners expertly repaired. Some light dampstaining at the front of the volume, else bright and clean. Very good. First edition of "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 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. "On the map of the world, California is shown as an island. Two of the plates represent male and female inhabitants of California" - Cowan. COWAN II, pp.581-82. HILL 1157. HOWES S383. SABIN 90158.

        The Complete English Tradesman, in Familiar Letters;

      London: for Charles Rivington,, 1726. Directing him in all the several Parts and Progressions of Trade… Calculated for the Instruction of our Inland Tradesmen; and especially of Young Beginners. Octavo (196 × 120 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt-rule border to covers, neatly rebacked to style, red morocco label, sprinkled edges. Title printed in red and black. Endpapers renewed; a crisp, clean copy. Likely first edition, though the work is bibliographically complex. Moore gives its history as follows: It was first published in 1725 with ten numbered sections, but within several months another version was issued with twelve sections. Both these issues were dated 1726. In 1726, but with an imprint of 1727, a "second edition" was published, with a separately paginated supplement; and in 1727 itself a second volume appeared, directed primarily to more experienced tradesmen than those for whom the first volume was written. If Moore is correct, this copy is the second issue of the first edition, since it has twelve numbered sections. But given that Moore gives no collation for the supposed first issue, and that no copy is located in BMC, NUC, or any of the standard bibliographies and is not mentioned by Furbank & Owens, it is perhaps doubtful that such an issue ever existed. Our copy is probably, therefore, a straight first edition. This "highly original conduct book" (ODNB) was perhaps based in part on Defoe's own experience of bankruptcy in 1692. The work deals with many subjects useful to the inexperienced tradesman, including apprenticeship, bankruptcy, trade networks and materials sourcing, customer relations, rumour and scandal, credit, book-keeping, and so on. He warns of the pitfalls that lie in wait, "for a tradesman to borrow money upon interest, I take to be like a man going into a home infected with the plague; 'tis not only likely that he may be infected and die, but next to a miracle if he escapes" (p. xv). Interestingly, he also puts forward a strong case for a wife to be involved in her husband's business. The book presages DeFoe's career as a novelist, as "Tradesmen, their families, and customers take the stage, are given feelings and personalities, and exit. More and more Defoe gave free rein to the creation of fictional worlds, and the flow into fantasy in whatever he wrote became more common…" (ODNB).

        Museum Geographicum, das ist: ein Verzeichnis der Besten Land-Charten so in Deutschland, Franckreich, England und Holland

      8vo. [17 x 10.3 cm], (8) ff., 320 pp. Bound in contemporary half calf and speckled paper over boards, raised bands on spine, title hand-written on paper label; spine and covers somewhat rubbed. Manuscript ex-libris of Bibliotheca Augusta and armorial bookplate on front pastedown; light toning throughout, the most minimal foxing; generally excellent.                    $3000A rare first edition of an important cartographic catalogue and a valuable account of the state of map and atlas collecting in the first quarter of the 18th century: Johann Hübner (1668-1731) presents a detailed list of his personal collection ?" what he calls the Museum Geographicum ?" some 2000 examples assembled over many years and at great expense (cosmopolitan Hamburg and its yearly fairs, says Hübner, are a boon for map and atlas collectors). The book provides a great deal of information on the map trade at this period, offering details about map and atlas titles and their engravers, discussing the present state of cartography (e.g., the derivative nature of Italian mapmaking), providing valuable collation information about scores of rare atlases and smaller multi-map books, preserving details about how Hübner assembled many of his loose maps into thematic volumes (a common practice among early collectors), and, most famously, theorizing how maps should and should not be colored:"By the end of the 17th century, several mapmakers reacted against the use of excessive color on maps and advocated reducing color to the practical minimum. Although the engraver might continue to beautify maps with decorative detail, the addition of color was to be strictly functional. Principal Johann Hübner of Hamburg was very successful in his propaganda campaign for coloristic purism ... In the introduction to his Museum Geographicum he recommended that the cartouches and decorative details be left uncolored. Color should serve only the informative purpose of emphasizing the administrative, religious, ethnic and other divisions of a country. Hübner?s recommendations were widely received, among others by the most prolific cartographer of the early 18th century, ... Homann" (Ehrensvärd).The Museum Geographicum, arranged by region or country, begins with a list of abbreviations of mapmakers from van der Aa to Zürner. Next are celestial globes, terrestrial globes, maps of the poles, maps and atlases of the 4 large zones of the earth (Europe, Asia, Africa, America), "Special-Charten" of regions of Asia and America (e.g., Persia, the West Indies, etc.), Spain and Portugal, France, Britain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, "The North" (Scandinavia), Prussia and Russia, Turkey and Greece, atlases of ancient subjects both sacred and profane, sea charts, "curious" maps, and (with a separate title page) small and large composite atlases for use at home or on the road (zu Hause und auf Reisen zu gebrauchen). Throughout Hübner makes comments about the function, age, beauty, accuracy, decoration, and rarity of individual examples. In an appendix Hübner offers for sale 24 atlases of his own compilation, from an 18-map collection of Germany to a 5-volume 1000-map miscellanea, with various prices given for "finely" and "poorly" preserved volumes and for different types of bindings.Hübner, a professor of Geography at Leipzig and a school rector in Hamburg, published several pedagogical texts, but the Museum Geographicum was his most influential work, with a Dutch version appearing in 1735, and a revised second edition in 1746. The Museum Geographicum and the posthumous 1732 sales catalogue of Hübner?s wider library (Bibliotheca Hübneriana, Hamburg) together form a full bibliographical record of the scholar?s collecting interests.U.S. copies of the first edition of the Museum Geographicum are housed at Yale and the Newberry Library.* ADB XIII, 268; NBG XXV, 358; A.

        Le nouveau miroir de la fortune ou abregé de la Geomance

Mezza pergamena posteriore. Treccani.it: "Nato a Roma nel 1646, figlio di Pompeo Colonna, l'autore trasse dall'ambiente paterno l'incentivo a dedicarsi non solo agli studi letterari, ma anche a quelli scientifici ed occultistici. Nel 1668 si trasferì a Parigi. La persona che doveva influire più profondamente sulla formazione mentale del C. fu senza dubbio il famoso conte Henri de Boulainviller, che si fece assistere da lui nello studio e nella pratica delle scienze occulte. Il marchese d'Argenson ricorda un oroscopo fatto a madame de Nointel da Boulainviller e dal C. (Mémoires et journal inédit, du Marquis d'Argenson, I, Paris 1857, pp. 208 - 209). Perfino Voltaire, nel 1756, ricordava di essersi fatto predire il futuro dai due astrologhi, in una epoca imprecisata, che non può essere posteriore al 23 genn. 1722, data di morte di Boulainviller: "le célèbre comte de Boulainvilliers, et un Italien nommé Colonne, qui avait beaucoup de réputation à Paris, me prédirent l'un et l'autre que je mourrais infailliblement à l'ige de trente - deux ans. J'ai eu la malice de les tromper déjà de près de trente années, de quoi je leur demande humblement pardon" (Voltaire, Dictionnaire philosophique, in Oeuvres complètes, Paris 1877 - 1885, XVII, p. 448). it.wikipedia: "La geomanzia nasce in Persia, ed è ritenuta essere il più antico sistema divinatorio ancora oggi praticato in Occidente".

        Cadenus and Vanessa. A poem. By Dr. S-t

      London: printed for N. Blandford; and sold by J. Peele, 1726. First Blandford edition. 31 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Recent marbled boards. Very good. A famous poem about the relationship between Swift and Esther Vanhomrigh ("Vanessa"), who died in 1723 and among whose papers a manuscript of the poem was found. It was first published in Dublin on about April 19, 1726, and a second edition followed shortly afterwards, adding ten "incriminating" lines; these two Dublin printings are very rare. On May 19 two rival editions, both unauthorized, appeared in London, this one, which follows the first Dublin printing, and one published by J. Roberts, which follows the second. Blandford went on to issue six more editions within the year, and Roberts several more as well. "This edition follows the text of the Dublin first edition and omits the additional ten lines" (Foxon)RARE. Neither of the first Blandford or Roberts printings has appeared at auction (in ABPC) since 1982.
