        Travels into several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships. Vol. I [-II].

Motte 1726 - 4 parts in 2 vols., frontispiece portrait (in second state) and 6 further plates, a bit of browning and spotting in vol. i, damp-staining in vol. ii, pp. xii, 148; [6], 164; [vi], 154, [8], [155]-353, [1], 8vo,[bound with, following the relevant part:] [Corolini di Marco (pseud)] The Flying Island, &c.

In a Fourth Letter to Dean Swift, 1726, pp. 28. contemporary panelled calf, rebacked, new end-papers, contemporary signature repeated a few times on back of frontispiece, sound A mixed set, the first volume being from the AA (second) edition and the second volume from the B (third) edition. The first three editions were once considered to be different issues of a single first edition. Later bibliographical analysis demonstrated that they were separate editions, each set from the previous, but Teerink, acknowledging the work done to identify them, still thought it ‘advisable to stick to the well established practice of calling the three 1726 editions first’, in part because both the printer and the author thought of them that way.The ‘Keys’ were 4 in number, one for each part, issued separately and at length collectively, the practice of binding them up with the text beginning with the B edition.

        Lithographiae Wirceburgensis, ducentis lapidum figuratorum, a potiori insectiformium, prodigiosis imaginibus exornatae specimen primum.

      Wirceburgi, apud P.W. Fuggart, 1726. Folio (310 x 200mm). pp. (12), 96 (recte 98), with engraved frontispiece and 21 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spine in 6 compartments. A fine copy of the first edition of one of the rarest curiosities in geological literature. "In the early years of the 18th century there were still a few skirmishes over the organic origin of fossils, but the notion that they were mere sports of nature was finally killed by ridiculous. Some pupils of J. Beringer of Würzburg decided that they would assists nature and their Professor by making some of these sports themselves; they therefore carved fantastic figures and hid them in the hills which Beringer explored. After making a large collection, he published a fully illustrated work 'Lithographiae Wirceburgensis' 1726, now one of the rarest curiosities of geological literature; for Beringer finally discovered the deception, endeavoured to buy up and destroy the whole collection" (Edwards. Early History of Paleontology, p. 34). Unfortunately he did not destroy the copies which he purchased, they were found in his house after his death and bought by a publisher who provided them with a new title-page and issued them in 1767 as a second edition of this work.//M.E. Jahn & D.J. Woolf in their translation and commentary of the above work 'The Lying Stones of Dr. Johann Bartholomew Adam Beringer ...' point out that the fakes were made by two academic rivals of the university, J.I. Roderick, professor of geography and mathematics and J.G. von Eckhart, privy counsellor and university librarian, and not Beringer's students as is often believed.//Our copy does not have the six pages of Hueber's 'Corollaries' which have no relation with the above work. Hueber's small work is inserted in some copies, however most copies do not have it.//Ward & Carozzi 182; Junk Rara I, p. 27.

        The Voyages and Adventures of Captain Robert Boyle, in Several Parts of the World to Which is Added, the Voyage, Shipwreck, and Miraculous Preservation of Richard Castelman, Gent. with a Description of the City of Philadelphia, and the County of Pennsylvania.

      London: John Watts, 1726 - Octavo (193 × 111 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, neatly rebacked, red morocco label, edges sprinkled red. Housed in a tan quarter morocco slip case, in limp cloth chemise. Bookplate of Frank S. Streeter to front pastedown. Slightly rubbed, conjoined wormholes through the front free endpaper and first few leaves, including the frontispiece and titlepage, light browning, but overall very good. Engraved frontispiece of a ship attacked by natives, by van der Gucht, head- and tailpieces. First edition. "Howes points out that Boyle's narrative must probably be a work of pure fiction, and certainly any reading of the novel supports his contention. Like the Thousand and One Nights, the novel is a series of tales, each new story prompted by a character in the last" (Imaginary Voyages). Sabin states that Castelman's narrative, which is distinguished by having a separate title page, "bears the mark of authenticity." In ODNB, where the present work is unequivocally identified as a novel, Chetwood is described as "an active but minor participant in the theatrical and publishing worlds of the first half of the eighteenth century. He knew everyone, travelled everywhere, and explored every conceivable avenue to financial stability, only to fail." Cox II, p.478; Howes C-355; Imaginary Voyages in Prose Fiction, 107; Sabin 12553.

        VETUS DISCIPLINA MONASTICA, SEU COLLECTIO AUCTORUM ORDINIS S. BENEDICTI maximam partem ineditorum, qui ante sexcentos fere annos per Italiam, Galliam atque Germaniam de Monastica disciplina tractarunt.

      Tip. Caroli Osmont. París, 1726 - . 25 cm. LXVII-594 pág., 17 h. Frontis calcográfico con retrato del abad de San Blas dibujado por Charles J. de Bender. Cabecera y capitular calcográfica. Enc. en piel, deslucida, cajo sesgado, planos y puntas rozadas, cortes pintados. * Primera edición de esta obra clave para la historia del monacato cristiano. La escribió el benedictino Hergott (1694-1762), cuyo verdadero nombre era Jean-Jacques y que fue consejero e historiógrafo en la corte austríaca en el siglo XVIII. En el subtítulo a la obra aparece como presbítero y monje benedictino de la congregación de san Blas en la Selva Negra. Los capítulos de la orden benedictina, contenidos íntegramente en este volumen, llegaban como suplemento a una necesaria ampliación de aquellos puntos no suficientemente desarrollados en la regla benedictina. En la época tenían la misma relevancia que la que tienen hoy las constituciones de un monasterio o congregación. El prefacio de la obra levantó un gran revuelo, como recoge J.-M. Quérard en el tomo IV de La france littéraire, ou dictionnaire bibliographique des savants. (París, Firmin Didot frêres, 1830): "El prefacio provocó grandes quejas por parte de los religiosos de Saint-Germain-des-Prés, ligados a la regla que se contradice, sobre la abstinencia y sobre muchos otros puntos. Vincent Thuillier (1684-1736) pasa por ser su autor, aunque protestó y negó haber participado en la obra más alla de revisar el latín de Hergott, de quien tenía toda la confianza." También Vacant y Mangenot sostienen la tesis de la colaboración de Thuillier en el tomo XV del Dictionnaire de Théologie Catholique, aunque él siempre lo negó, como recogen Prosper y Tassin en Histoire littéraire de la Congrégation de Saint-Maur (1770). Hergott es autor de otras cuatro obras, también en latín, impresas en Viena.

        Danubius Pannonico-Mysicus. Observationibus geographicis, astronomicis, hydrographicis, historicis, physicis perlustratus.

      . Hagae Comitum (The Hague) Gosse, Alberts, & de Hondt; Amsterdam, Uytwerf & Changuion, 1726. Six volumes in six. Imperial folio (58 x 40.5 cm). Titles printed in red and black. Six engraved frontispieces, and 283 copper-engraved plates, as well as many text engravings, engraved vignettes and capitals. Signed in the first volume by all four publishers, listing all subscribers, and numbered (#93), identifying this set as that of Adriaan Deynoot (1685-1744). Contemporary uniform full morocco. Spines with eight raised, gilt-ornamented bands, rich gilt compartments and two black morocco labels with gilt titles. Boards with gilt ornamental borders, gilt corner pieces, and gilt dentelles. Marbled endpapers. Edges marbled.* First edition of this rare, splendid and opulent work which was vastly expanded on knowledge derived from the author's own collection of natural history specimens and artifacts - Marsigli's famous Kunstkammer in Bologna. The work deals with the natural history of the Danube river, which runs from southern Germany into Austria, through Slovakia, Hungary, along Croatia, through Serbia and Romania, and along Bulgaria, towards the Black Sea. It flows through Regensburg, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade and numerous other cities. It is the longest river of Central Europe. Its fauna has many endemic elements, and its waters have been a major trading route since prehistoric times. Wood: "Basic work on one of Europe's greatest rivers [...] in which [Marsigli] devoted much space to a study of the riverbed and of the waters, as well as to the flora and fauna, and geology and the mineralogy of the adjacent land." DSB: "An early classic on the natural history of the River Danube with an account (vols. IV-VI) of the animals living in it and about its course, a description of the fishes, birds and their nests, the quadrupeds roaming the banks, etc.". The volumes are devoted to cartography, astronomy and hydrography (Volume 1) with maps of the whole river and spurious astronomical observations [measurements of star positions (e.g. Polaris, Arcturus, Spica) at various places along the Danube (e.g. Vienna), Jupiter and the position of the Galilean moons (in several figures), the transit of Mercury, on 3 November 1697 and its track across the solar disc (figured), and lunar phases with 16 large figures showing the terminator relative to the moon's craters]; archaeology and history of the settlements, towns, roads and bridges (Vol. 2); mineralogy (Vol. 3); fish fauna (Vol. 4), which includes one plate with shells, and two with turtles; avifauna (Vol. 5); and several other subjects, including meteorological and climatological observations, notes on the river's velocity, the insects occurring in and near the river, etc., etc. (Vol. 6). They are titled as follows: Tomus I, in tres partes digestus : geographicum, astronomicum, hydrographicum; Tomus II. De Antiquitatibus Romanorum ad ripas Danubii; Tomus. III. De Mineralibus circa Danubium effossis; Tomus IV. De Piscibus in aquis Danubii viventibus; Tomus V. De Avibus circa aquas Danubii vagantibus, et de ipsarum nidis.; Tomus VI. De Fontibus Danubii. Observationes anatomicae. De Aquis Danubii et Tibisci. Catalogus plantarum. Observationes habitae cum barometris et thermometris. De Insectis. Wood: "The part of ornithological plates with 74 drawings by the Italian artist Raimondo Manzini (1658-1730), including 59 birds, and 15 nests with eggs, the latter are considered the first illustrations of its kind in the history of ornithology". In several bibliographies the plate number is erroneously stated to be 284, which probably goes back to a counting error caused by inconsistencies in the numbering of figures and the distinction between engraved plates and text engravings. Complete copies have 283 plates, as should be concluded after carefully comparing the extensive plate listings. Provenance: the former owner of this copy was the original subscriber, Adriaan Deynoot from Holland, who earned his doctorate in law in Leiden and held various offices in his hometown of Rotterdam, including Commissioner for Water Regulations. He also served several times as the city's mayor. Sir Hans Sloane was among the other subscribers. Spines with some dry patches, a few skilful old repairs, some leaf-edges slightly toned or thumbed, but overall a fine, complete, and clean copy. Anker, 326; Cat. BM(NH), p. 1,247; Brunet III, 1474; Dean III, p. 284; Nissen IVB, 593; Nissen ZBI, 2697; Wood, p. 452..

      Wien, 7. I. 1726. - 2 SS. Folio. An den "jetzigen Besitzer" der im Niederrheinischen Kreis gelegenen Dörfer Eidenborn und Falscheidt (wohl ein Erbe des letzten, 1723 verstorbenen Grafen Karl Ludwig von Nassau-Saarbrücken). "Reichs-Ritterschaft und Adel" des Niederrheinischen Kreises hatten gegen den Erwerber der beiden Dörfer Klage erhoben und sich dabei auf ein Vorkaufsrecht bezogen, das beim Verkauf der Dörfer von Johann Heinrich von Hagen an Graf Gustav Adolf von Nassau-Saarbrücken i. J. 1624 ausgehandelt worden war. Der Kaiser befiehlt nun, die Dörfer "gegen das anerbottene Kauff-pretium" zurückzugeben. - Etwas angestaubt und fleckig und mit kleinen Randläsuren; einige Ausrisse alt hinterlegt; mit eh.

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD BY WAY OF THE GREAT SOUTH SEA, PERFORM&#39;D IN THE YEARS 1719, 20, 21, 22

      London. 1726.. [8],xxxii,[4],468pp. plus four engraved plates (two folding) and one folding engraved double-hemisphere world map. Contemporary dark brown calf, gilt, expertly rebacked with original spine label preserved. A clean text in very good condition. 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&#39;s Rime of the Ancient Mariner" -Hill. HILL, p.272-73. HOWES S383. SABIN 80158. COWAN II, pp. 581-582.

Pequeños exlibris estampillados en portadas. Excelente ejemplar impreso sobre recio papel de hilo, intonso en origen conservando todas sus barbas, amplios margenes, ladillos. Magnífica impresión y varias tipografías, en general bastante limpio, aunque los cortes tiene algo de óxido muy tenue. Reimpresión de éste libelo célebre del siglo XVI con las observaciones de Duchat y algunas adiciones de Prosper Marchand. Importante sátira que parodia la asamblea del Etats Generaux sostenida en 1593 (con el objeto de elegir a un Rey Católico). Expresa las opiniones a favor de las reclamaciones de Enrique IV de Francia (1589-1610) y III de Navarra (1572-1610) oponiéndose a la Liga española y sus partidarios. Las sátiras influyeron enormemente en el resultado de la asamblea, y Enrique IV fue elegido. El trabajo esta dividido en tres partes. Comienza con una descripción de apertura de la asamblea, seguido en la segunda parte por un catálogo del jefe de la Liga y discursos imaginarios. Finalmente, hay sátiras mixtas y epigramas. Escrito en el momento de la derrota del Liga, fue "un bestseller" inmediato. La paternidad literaria, por lo general, es atribuida a Jean Leroy, con la colaboración de Jean Passerat, Pierre Pithou, Nicolas Rapim y otros. El título de la sátira proviene de "Saturae Menippeae", trabajo perdido de Varro basado en las sátiras del cínico griego Menippus. CCPB000069376-6. Brunet V, 145. Cohen de Rici, 939. Palau 302972.
