        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..

        Brief mit eigenh. U.

      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'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's Rime of the Ancient Mariner" -Hill. HILL, p.272-73. HOWES S383. SABIN 80158. COWAN II, pp. 581-582.

        SATYRE MENIPPÉE, DE LA VERTU DU CATHOLICON D’ESPAGNE, ET DE LA TENUE DES ETATS DE PARIS, A laquelle est ajoûté un Discours sur l’Interprétation du / mot de HIGUIERO DEL INFIERNO, & qui en est l Auteur. III volúmenes. Ilustrador Cornelius Severus

      - "A Ratisbone. Chez les Heritiers de Mathias Kerner. 1726. Tres volúmenes. O.C. 8º mayor, 4h incluso frontis grabado y portada a dos tintas, xxxvi-464pp-14 folios para tabla y uno blanco, 7h para láminas, 2 de ellas plegadas, 5h inclusa portada a dos tintas, 522pp-19h para tabla, 1h blanca, 2h para láminas, 2h inclusa portada a dos tintas, 596pp-17 folios para tabla, 1h blanca. Magníficamente ilustrada con X grabados de Cornelius Severus en talla dulce de magnífica factura, II plegados, portadas con viñetas xilográficas, grabados y capitulares iniciales, vinetas finales en madera. Soberbia encuadernación del siglo XIX plena piel gofrada época, nervios, lomera cuajada, triple filete dorado recuadrando ambos planos y doble en cantos, hierros al oro en contracantos. 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.

        TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First Surgeon and then a Captain of Several Ships.

      Benj. Motte 1726 - First edition, first printing (i.e. Teerink A). Frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state, as usual, with vertical chain lines and the lettering around the oval frame. Two volumes (197 x 120mm), bound in contemporary calf with gilt ruled borders and gilt titles to the spine. Binding sometime neatly rebacked with some old repairs to the hinges and corners. Internally clean with occasional browning. An excellent, tall set of this landmark novel in contemporary state. Five engraved maps. The author's masterpiece and landmark in the early development of the novel. The first printing was published on 28 October and sold out within a week and was quickly followed by two further printings in 1726, which are subtly different to the first printing, though bibliographically distinct as shown by Teerink in his bibliography of Swift, and referred to as Teerink AA and B issues. The work was immediately hailed as a classic, "From the highest to the lowest, it is universally read, from the Cabinet-council to the Nursery" - John Gay "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond Temporary Fame" (PMM) Teerink 290; PMM 185 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World.

      1726 - Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts by Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships. Two volumes, 8vo. Frontispiece portrait and six plates (five maps and a design for a thought machine). London, Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726. First edition, third issue. [Teerink's state B, published in December 1726. There were three issues of the first edition of the Travels published in 1726, known as the A, AA, and B editions. The A edition was published in October of 1726 and sold out within a week]. Original brown panelled calf binding with decorative blind ruled borders and corner pieces. Spines with raised bands, title labels heavily worn on volume 1 and just the remnants left on volume 2. Volume numbers stamped in gilt in 4th compartment. Spines scuffed, head of spines worn, joints cracked, but bindings sound. The text of both volumes bright and fresh throughout. A very good set, rarely found in contemporary bindings. The first printing of Gulliver's Travels was in October of 1726 and there were four distinct 8vo editions (all by Motte) and further 12mo editions within a year. The first three octavo editions are traditionally considered to comprise the First Edition. Swift endeavoured to remain anonymous as the author of the travels. The printer Motte wrote that he received the second part of the travels 'he knew not from whence, nor from whom, dropped at his house in the dark, from a hackney coach. Gulliver’s Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame. All those who had been fascinated by the realism and vivid detail of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe were captivated again, even though they knew that Gulliver must be fiction. The brilliance and thoroughness, with which his logic and invention work out the piquancy of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputians, and then by a minikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the author’s original intention. Gulliver s Travels has achieved the final apotheosis of a satirical fable (PMM). [Grolier], [100 English, 42]. [Printing and the Mind of Man 185].

        Istoria e coltura delle piante che sono pe'l fiore più ragguardevoli , e più distinte per ornare un giardino. con un copioso trattato degli agrumi.

      - Venezia, presso Andrea Poletti, 1726. 4to (235 x 175mm). pp. (34), 761, (3), with an engraved portrait of Clarici holding a bouquet of flowers in his right hand, an engraved title-vignette with a dwarf lemon tree in a pot with two putti, and a large engraved plan (530 x 740mm) of the Villa Marocco and its gardens. Contemporary half vellum, spine with red gilt lettered label, marbled sides. A fine copy of the first and only edition of one of the most important works on flower gardens and the cultivation of flowers of Northern Italy. Paolo Bartolomeo Clarici (1664-1725) 'spent most of his life in the Veneto where his literary and scientific tastes brought him the friendship of many members of the great Venetian families. Prominent among these was Gerardo Sagredo, Procurator of St Mark's, for whom he laid out a splendid garden in the Venetian style for the family villa at Marocco. Clarici used a print of a bird's eye view of this Marocco garden in his book as an ideal example of layout. predominantly a flower garden' (Masson, Italian gardens).'The work is divided into four sections: the first provides the reader with a brief history of the garden architecture and instructions on how to contruct a proper garden; the second is dedicated to cultivation techniques; the third to botanical history and the cultivation of certain prized flowering plants; and the fourth to a dissertation on citrus plants. 'Istoria e coltura della piante' was a work of serious scholarship, one based on careful reading of the most recent scientific works on botanical subjects as well as the author's own research. Thus Clarici left behind him a useful legacy that was to influence generations of garden architects and floriculturists both in Italy and elsewhere' (Tomasi, An Oak Spring Flora pp. 140-2).Pritzel 1728; Tomasi, An Oak Spring Flora No. 36.

        Historia general de los hechos de los castellanos en las Islas y Tierra Firme del Mar Océano?

      Nicolás Rodríguez Franco 1726-1730, Madrid - I: (20) h., 78 pp., (2) h., 292 pp., (4) h., 288 pp.; II: (2) h., 296 pp., (3) h., 232 pp; III: (4) h., 252 pp., (3) h., 236 pp., (3) h., 245 pp. (en realidad 247); IV: (3) h., 251, (446) pp. 9 frontis y 14 mapas a doble página. Pasta española de época, lomo con nervios, hierros dorados y doble tejuelo, ligeramente sobada. Buen ejemplar de esta obra fundamental para la Historia de América. Edición corregida y aumentada con notas por Andrés García de Barcia. Las ocho Décadas tienen cada una portada independiente finamente grabadas al cobre representando diferentes escenas del descubrimiento y conquista junto a los retratos de los conquistadores y descubridores más importantes. Cada portada, aunque con una estructura de composición similar, contiene diferentes motivos. En total 72 escenas de guerra, vistas de sacrificios, vistas de ciudades, indios, etc., y 39 retratos de conquistadores y de los primeros españoles en el Nuevo Mundo, cuyas representaciones son las más auténticas que se conocen. La Descripción de las Indias Occidentales, también con portada grabada independiente, contiene 14 mapas plegados representando América por territorios; uno de ellos representa el Continente completo además del Océano Pacífico con sus Islas (Salomon, Nueva Guinea, Filipinas, etc.) hasta la parte más oriental de China. Esta es sin duda la parte más importante de la obra ya que para la realización de los mapas Herrera pudo acceder a los Archivos más secretos de la Corona Española para hacer su composición. Como describe Pérez Pastor, La Imprenta en Madrid, 784 & 785: "Los 14 mapas grabados al cobre son en muchos casos las primeras representaciones y descripciones de muchas provincias americanas."Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas (1559-1625) nació en Cuéllar, en la provincia de Segovia. Fue un erudito en su tiempo, conocedor de lenguas clásicas e incansable historiador y biógrafo, escribió y publicó numerosas obras, siendo la presente la que le dio fama universal. En 1596 fue nombrado Cronista de Indias por Felipe II, cargo que también desempeñó bajo el reinado de Felipe III. Esta obra, también conocida como Décadas de Indias, fue publicada por partes y tardó diecinueve años en escribirla; para su realización utilizó una amplia bibliografía: crónicas oficiales, de gobernadores, de frailes, etc., además de consultar los archivos de la Corona. Pequeños puntos de polilla al pie de la portada del tomo I, y algunas manchas en la portada del tomo IV. Encuadernación original, algo rozada. Palau 114287 cita: "Obra importante y una de las más completas para el estudio de las Indias, desde su nacimiento hasta 1554"; Porrúa Hnos. 7145; Sabin 31546; Medina, BHA, 2580; Leclerc 706; Pérez Pastor, La Imprenta en Madrid, 784 y 1334.

George Shelley [ 1666 - 1736 ] took over the work in 1704 with the eleventh edition, adding chapters of his own. Edmund Wingate [ 1596 - 1656 ] mathematician and legal writer who in 1620 was one of the first people to publish a book on the use of the slide rule or the 'rule of proportion', an instrument for performing logarithmic calculations. This work, part one of Wingate's original, had been intended to be 'onely a key to open the secrets of the other, which treats of artificial arithmetique performed by logarithms' which was the reason Wingate requested Kersey to revise it so as it could stand alone as a text book on elementary mathematics. Chapter XI of Kersey's work is a series of mathematical conundrums & puzzles. 500 grams. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Charter Granted by Their Majesties King William and Queen Mary, to the Inhabitants of the Province of the Massachusetts-Bay in New-England [and] Acts and laws of His Majesty's Province of the Massachusetts-Bay in New- England

      Boston: B. Green - for Benjamin Eliot -, 1726 - An attractive, unsophisticated copy of this early and important compilation of the Acts and Laws of the Province of Massachusetts, as organized under the terms of the charter of William & Mary. That charter, which was enacted May 14, 1692, included Massachusetts Bay Colony, Plymouth Colony, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, the Province of Maine, and parts of what is now Nova Scotia. More importantly, the independence of the old Colony was greatly reduced, the powers of the Provincial Governor were increased, and the newly chartered Province was more tightly controlled by British imperial rule. Even more important is the inclusion here for the first time of the newly adopted modification to the Charter, King George's "Explanatory Charter" (pp. 13-14), whereby the position of the Governor was further strengthened: he was given sole power to adjourn the House of Representatives, and the right to veto the House's choice of their Speaker. The "Explanatory Charter," which was adopted in January, 1726, is printed here for the first time; it was first printed separately later in the year (Evans 2659). Not until the "Intolerable Acts" of 1774 was there such a radical alteration to the Charter, and such a serious blow to colonial autonomy. An important and early document in the development of modern Massachusetts, and in the chain of events culminating in 1776 (MASSACHUSETTS COLONY) Folio. Two parts: [2], 14 [Charter]; [2], 347 [Acts], [1], 17 [Table] pp. Two parts with separate title-pages and pagination. Contemporary calf tooled in blind. Some rubbing and wear, free endpapers missing, last few leaves frayed, piece torn from margin of final leaf, slightly affecting a few letters, some foxing, soiling, occasional minor tears or fraying. Contemporary ownership signature of Capt. John Rounsevell on first title-page. Evans 2762; Cushing, Mass. Laws 343
