Der letzte Abschnitt behandelt die Zahnanatomie (De dentibus). - - Hirsch-Hübotter I, 71.

        Recueil concernant le voyage de S.A.S. Mademoiselle de Clermont allant chercher la Reine à Strasbourg. 25 juillet 1725.

      S.l., s.d., (1726), - in-4, [2] ff. n. ch. (titre et table), 73 pp., couvertes d'une écriture moyenne et très lisaible (environ 15 lignes par page), texte en partie réglé, maroquin noir, dos à nerfs muet, cloisonné et fleuronné, double encadrement de dent-de-rat et simple filet doré, puis double filet et dent-de-rat dorés avec fleurons d'angle sur les plats, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure, gardes doublées de papier doré à motifs floraux (reliure de l'époque). Manuscrit inédit. Quatrième fille de Louis III de Bourbon-Condé et de Louise-Françoise de Bourbon (Mademoiselle de Nantes), Marie-Anne de Bourbon-Condé (1697-1741) fut nommée le 27 avril 1725 surintendante de la maison de la Reine, la jeune Marie Leszczinska, par l'entremise de son frère Louis IV (1692-1740), ministre en exercice, qui avait négocié l'étrange mariage du Roi avec cette princesse polonaise plus qu'obscure. A ce titre, elle mena la maison du Roi de Paris à Strasbourg, pour accueillir la jeune Reine, l'assister dans les cérémonies par procuration qui eurent lieu dans la cathédrale de Strasbourg, et la ramener à Fontainebleau. A la suite de cette première mission, réussie à la satisfaction tant de son frère que du cardinal de Fleury, Mademoiselle de Clermont garda auprès de la reine sa charge jusqu'à sa mort. . Composée pour Marie-Anne de Bourbon-Condé. Notre manuscrit correspond exactement à ce voyage de Strasbourg, et son contenu suggère qu'il a été composé à l'usage même de la princesse. Nous avons en effet successivement : 1. L'itinéraire de Paris à Strasbourg (25 juillet - 13 août 1725), puis de Stasbourg à Fontainebleau (16 août - 5 septembre 1725, pp. 1-2). 2. Le règlement du 27 avril 1725 instituant Mademoiselle de Clermont surintendante (pp. 3-6). 3. Un mémoire sur les droits et fonctions de la surintendante (pp. 6-18). 4. Des mémoires sur le voyage de Strasbourg (pp. 19-30). 5. Les provisions de la charge et le mémoire donnant les ordres mêmes du Roi pour le voyage (pp. 31-47). 6. Les ordres du Roi sur les fonctions de la duchesse de Boufflers, dame d'honneur de la Reine (pp. 47-57). 7. Une copie d'une lettre de Maurepas en réponse à plusieurs questions d'étiquette (pp. 58-62). 8. Un règlement sur les fonctions des officiers et officières de la chambre de la Reine (pp. 63-69). 9. Enfin, plusieurs correspondances relatives à l'étiquette, y compris celle à observer pour la visite de la Reine d'Espagne (Louise-Elisabeth d'Orléans, 1709-1742, veuve de Louis Ier, qui avait discrètement regagné Paris en 1725 après la mort de son jeune mari en 1724) à Marie, prévue le 31 mars 1726, donc bien après le retour de Strasbourg.

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.

      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.
