        The Cook's and Confectioner's Dictionary. Or, the Accomplished Housewife's Companion. Containing the choicest Receipts of Cookery; The Third Edition with Additions.

      London: Charles Rivington, 1726 - Leather, 8vo. newly bound in the old style, panelled calf, new red morocco label, pp. nn. engraved frontispiece provided in facsimile, pp. Qq1 and Qq 8 also in facsimile, some staining to first part of the volume. B.346, Mac.107, O.56. An attractive item echoing the food and cookery of period. The author gives a graphic description of an elaborate "Divertisement on Cookery, us'd at Festival-Times, as Twelfth-Day, &c." culminating in lids of pies being lifted, birds flying about, frogs leaping, canons discharging making "the Ladies skip and scamper" and causing "a surprizing and diverting Hurly-burly among the Guests". And all this before the Banquet is brought in. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica. Editio tertia aucta & emendata.

      William and John Innys 1726 - title printed in red and black, with engraved portrait frontispiece, 1 engraving and numerous diagrams in the text, complete with half-title and final advertisement leaf, some foxing at the beginning and end, a few scattered minor stains, repairs to margins of front fly-leaves, pp. [xxxvi, including half-title, engraved frontispiece portrait by George Vertue facing title], 530, [8], 4to, late 19th-century half red hard-grained morocco, spine gilt in compartments and lettered direct, red edges, rebacked preserving original (i.e. 19thC) spine, early inscription at head of title (see below), 19th-century signature stamp of Dugald Macdonald at centre of title-page, bookplate on flyleaf of the Québecois George G. Leroux, very good Third and definitive edition of ‘the greatest work in the history of science’(PMM), one of only 1250 copies printed, 250 of which were printed on large or thick paper. ‘This edition was the last published during the author’s lifetime and the basis of all subsequent editions. It was edited by Henry Pemberton, M.D., F.R.S., and contains a new preface by Newton and a large number of alterations, the most important being the scholium on fluxions, in which Leibnitz had been mentioned by name. This had been considered an acknowledgement of Leibnitz’s independent discovery of the calculus. In omitting Leibnitz’s name in this edition, Newton was criticized as taking advantage of an opponent whose death had prevented any reply’ (Babson, p. 12). The inscription at the head of the title-page, dated July 9, 1733, is a little cropped at the top, and faded. It is difficult to read, but seems to say: ‘Gifted to Mr. William Scott of Babecan advocate by me [ ] Foulis.’ (Babson 13; Wallis 9; PMM 161 (first edition, 1687))

        Sancti Caecilii Cypriani Episcope Carthaginensis et martyris Opera ad MSS. Codices recognita & illustrate studio ac labore Stephani Baluzii Tutelensis.

      Ex Typographia Regia, Paris 1726 - Tall folio. pp. [2], cxlvii, [8], 608, cccxlvi, [25]. With title page vignette and head and tail pieces. Text in Latin. Bound in full blind stamped period vellum with 7 raised bands on the spine. Front hinge is professionally repaired / strengthened. Pages are generally clean and crisp with a periodic spot of foxing (or miniscule ash burn); an occasional leaf is lightly age-toned. Several pages towards the end of the volume are numbered and signed twice (i.e. 543 544). A front blank fly-leaf contains a 5 x 32 mm hole and an inscription in a small early hand on the verso. Caecilius Cyprianus or St. Cyprian (200-258 c.e.) was Bishop of Carthage and important early Church father. He was beheaded in 258 during the persecution of Christians instigated by the Roman emperor Valerian. Many of Cyprian's writings still exist. His epistles and pastoral letters are an important source of early Church history. He also wrote on the various Church schisms and controversies of the time [EB11]. A section of spurious works attributed to Cyprian such as the "Confessio Sancti Cypriani" is also included. Edited by French scholar Etienne Baluze or Stephanus Baluzius (1630-1718) with an extensive section of notes and commentary on the texts. [Brunet II, 459 - "Bonne edition"; Graesse II, p. 316].

        Livre de portraiture recueilly des oeuvres de Ioseph de Rivera, dit l'Espagnolet.

      en casa de Jean Stada, Paris 1726 - 26 planchas grabadas al cobre. Cubiertas originales en cartoné. Rara cartilla de dibujo de José de Ribera, que sirvió de guía a todos los alumnos y profesores desde finales del siglo XVII y todo el XVIII. En 1650 vieron la luz por vez primera en Paris 24 de las planchas. A mediados del siglo XVIII la Calcografía las imprimió en España, grabadas esta vez por Juan Barcelón. Dice Cean Bermúdez en su "Diccionario histórico de los más ilustres profesores de Bellas Artes": "Fue el Españoleto uno de los más insignes pintores naturalistas que ha habido. Aventajose a su maestro -Caravaggio- en el dibuxo e igualó su fuerza en el claro oscuro. Ninguno hubo más adicto al natural pues expresaba hasta las arrugas y demás accidentes del cuerpo humano. Son 26 las estampas que grabó al aguafuerte con delicadeza y corrección." Buen ejemplar, en su estado original. Mancha de humedad en las primeras 4 planchas, el resto en perfecto estado.

      Joannes Ratelband Amsterdam 1726 - TUTTE LE OPERE DEL SIGNOR JACOB CATS; CAVALIERE, CONSIGLIERE ANZIANO PENSIONARIO D?OLANDA. & C. L?ULTIMA EDIZIONE STAMPATA; COMPRENDENTE ?UNA VITA LUNGA OTTANTADUE ANNI? DEL POETA; E ?NOTTI INSONNI?, ARRICHITO CON STAMPE ILLUSTRATE. Due tomi in uno AD AMSTERDAM, PRESSO JOHANNES RATELBAND, LA VEDOVA JAN VAN HEEKEREN, HERMANUS UYTWERF, ISAAK VAN DER PUTTE, A L?AIA PRESSO PIETER VAN THOL E PIETER HUSSON. MDCCXXVI Al frontespizio Incisione allegorica raffigurante due putti che sorreggono una corona di fiori sopra un tondo nel quale una figura alata tiene per mano un fanciullo: in alto,un motto in francese recita: Virtù come guida Il volume raccoglie tutte le opere di Jacob Cats (1577-1660), poeta olandese e autore di libri di emblemi, molto amato dagli olandesi che lo chiamavano affettuosamente ?Padre Cats? I libri di emblemi, una forma letteraria molto diffusa nel 17° secolo, consistevano in una raccolta di incisioni accompagnate da detti, proverbi, versi o commenti in prosa, a scopo di ammaestramento morale; questo stile, derivato dalle allegorie e dai bestiari medioevali, fu introdotto per la prima volta da Andrea Alciati nel 1531, con il suo Emblematum liber. L? emblema ebbe la sua età aurea nel Cinquecento, soprattutto in Olanda; andò decadendo nei due secoli successivi fino a scomparire con l?Ottocento. Jacob Cats, che conseguì una grandissima notorietà con le sue opere, fu il primo a unire alla letteratura emblematica la poesia d?amore, anche grazie alle sue grandi doti narrative; le sue fonti principali furono la Bibbia, i classici e, in parte, Boccaccio e Cervantes. Il volume in-folio,tutta pelle con nervi al dorso e scritte in oro, piatti con linee e cornici dorate, diviso in in due parti, è un monumento della letteratura e dell?illustrazione olandesi del 17° secolo; con più di 1300 pagine (9 ? 673 -6 ? 607 ? 68),ritratti dell?autore, incisioni a tutta pagina e a doppia pagina, ricco di capilettera e finalini, due frontespizi illustrati e (circa) 422 incisioni di Adriaan van de Venne (1589-1662), un pittore olandese specializzato in soggetti allegorici e illustrazioni e ritratti di genere, commentate ognuna da proverbi in spagnolo, italiano, tedesco e francese, che accompagnano idealmente 19 poemi in lingua olandese.

        Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts by Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships.

      London: for Benj. Motte, 1726 - 2 volumes, octavo (178 × 115 mm). Contemporary calf, red and green morocco labels, red speckled edges. Ownership signature partially erased from verso of each front free endpaper. Repairs to joints and corners, some light marking and spotting to contents, minor crease and tear to frontispiece. Excellent condition. Frontispiece portrait, 5 maps, and 1 diagram. Teerink's "B" edition, with the portrait of Gulliver in second state, as usual. The first three editions of Gulliver's Travels are all octavos published by Benjamin Motte dated 1726 without edition statement, and were long thought of as merely different issues. The edition designated Second on the title-page is dated 1727. It was noted by John Gay that, "The whole impression sold in a week". It was hailed as a classic that "would last as long as the language, because it described the combination of qualities which made it at once a favourite book of children and a summary of bitter scorn for mankind" (DNB). "Gulliver's Travels has given Swift immortality beyond temporary fame" (PMM 185). PMM; Teerink B.

Dessler, Wolfgang Christoph (1660-1722), Kirchenliederdichter, D. erlernte gegen seine Neigung die Goldarbeiterkunst, widmete sich aber bald den Wissenschaften, da er für den Beruf des Vaters untauglich war. D. studierte in Altdorf bei Nürnberg Theologie, mußte aber wegen Geldmangels und anhaltender Kränklichkeit sein Studium abbrechen und nach Nürnberg zurückkehren. Er übernahm für verschiedene Druckereien Korrekturarbeiten und lernte dabei den religiösen Schriftsteller Erasmus Finx, genannt Francisci, kennen, der ihn in der geistlichen Dichtkunst unterwies. D. half ihm bei der Herausgabe verschiedener erbaulicher und theologischer Schriften und übersetzte auf seinen Wunsch wertvolle ausländische religiöse Werke ins Deutsche. Er schrieb selbst Betrachtungen über Sprüche der Heiligen Schrift und Passionsandachten und streute in diese Arbeiten seine Lieder ein. D. wurde 1705 Konrektor an der Schule zum Heiligen Geist in Nürnberg und verwaltete 15 Jahre dieses Amt.

        A catalogue of Books printed for and Sold By A. Bettesworh, at the Red-Lion in Pater-Noster-Row

      1726. (London, c. 1726). 8vo. 16pp. Disbound. The first 10 pages of this catalogue are devoted to general books. For each book a size and price are stated. The rest of page 10 and page 11 contains 'Libri in Usum Scholarum'. Pages 12 to 16 contain newly published books each of these with a very extensive description, the year it was published and the price. The second half of page 16 contains a short list of plays that are sold at one shilling each, without giving more than the title, among which are of course some of Shakespeare's plays. Rare catalogue of Arthur Bettesworth who worked at Paternoster Row between 1726 and 1738. His will was proved on June 9th 1739 (cf Plomer 1726-1777). Plomer also mentions Bettesworth in the dictionary of 1668-1725 as working at the Red-Lion on London Bridge between 1699-1737. He says: "Chiefly a publisher of divinity, though he published many novels, &c., and, like all booksellers on the Bridge, dealt in some questionable literature".

      Boston: Printed for S. Gerrish in Cornhill, 1726.. [2],iv,10,207,[3]pp., including contents leaf. Contemporary American brown morocco, tooled in blind. Minor spotting, occasional small tears in margins, else very good. Provenance: Jno. Cotton (inscriptions, variously dated 1729 and 1733); Rev. Chandler Robbins; Jesse Harlow Jr. (inscription, dated 1800, noting that he bought the book at the sale of Rev. Robbins' books). In a half morocco slipcase. 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). This copy has important provenance to John Cotton (1693- 1757), the minister of the Church in Newton and the great grandson of Puritan divine John Cotton (1585-1652), the maternal grandfather of Cotton Mather.

        Ebauche de la religion naturelle. Traduite de l'Anglois, avec un supplement, et autres additions considerables. The Hague: Jean Swart, 1726.

      - First French edition of Wollaston's important work in constructive deism, The Religion of Nature Delineated (privately printed in 1722 then published in 1724, the year of his death). The French translator was one 'Garrigue', perhaps a French protestant since the Garrigues were a prominent Hugenot family. 'The book achieved rapid fame which was to last for over half a century, and spread far beyond the British Isles. We are told that 10,000 copies of it were sold in the course of a few years. In all, eight editions appeared, the last one coming out in 1759. As early as 1726, a French translation was published by Garrigue at the Hague under the title "Ebauche de la Religion Naturelle par Mr. Wollaston", to be followed in 1756 by a fresh edition in three volumes. In the Preface to the work the translator speaks of "l’applaudissement extraordinaire, que le Public a donne a ce livre", and greatly eulogizes the author. The two editions contain also a translation into French by de la Faye, Professor of Oriental Languages at the Hague, of Wollaston's copious Latin, Greek, and Hebrew notes, and supplementary notes by the translator. At the end, three supplementary chapters offer an evaluation of Wollaston's work (Alexander Altmann, 'William Wollaston (1659-1724)', Transactions of the Jewish Historical Society of England, Vol. XVI, 1952, p. 185). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 4to, xix, [i], 442, [6] pp., no half-title, contemporary plain boards with manuscript spine lettering, somewhat marked and dusty, scattered light browning only, a good unsophisticated copy with wide margins, uncut.

Housed together in a red morocco clamshell case.Gulliverís Travels, to use the popular title, is one of the greatest satires in the English languageóor any language, for that matter. It was an immediate success, which accounts in part for its bibliographical complexity, and has been hailed as a book that ìwould last as long as the language, because it described the vices of man in all nationsî (D.N.B.). Vice not withstanding, and unintentionally, it has become not just a great satirical novel, but a juvenile classic as well.Grolier, 100 English, 42. Hubbard, pp. 15-17.

        A catalogue of books printed for H. Curll, over-against Catherine-Street in the Strand

      1726. (London), n.d. (1726). Drop-title. 8vo. 16pp. disbound. Edmund Curll (1675-1747) was a rather controversial person. According to Straus there never was a man who succeeded in irritating almost beyond endurance so many of his betters. And nothing could make him see the error of his ways: he just continued to irritate. If, for instance, objection was raised to some books of his of the bawdier kind, it would as likely as not be followed by another even more scandalously improper. If a furious author declared that a book of his, published by Curll, was wholly unauthorised, he would probably find that a second volume of his work was being advertised as corrected by the author himself. Occasionaly the bookseller went too far, and then there was trouble, sometimes wholly grotesque. He was frequently sued for libel and variously fined and even imprisoned for printing and publishing obscene and immoral books. In November 1725 Curll was once again found guilty and announced his retreat from bookselling. His son Henry was called on to step in the breach. Henceforth, it was decided things should continue much as it had been, except for an altered initial. That probably explains why this catalogue was printed for H. Curll rather than his father Edmund. Although officially he was retreated it was Edmund who ran the business. Straus dates this catalogue around 1726 or 1727: ... must, I think, have been issued either in the summer of 1726 or in the spring of 1727 [cf. Strauss, The Unspeakable Curll & Plomer, A dictionary of the printers and booksellers]. Scarce.

      London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, MDCCXXVI [1726]. 2 vols, 8vo, A-K8, L2, [-]1, 2[-]2, 2B-2L8, M2; pp. [i-v], vi-xvi, [1], 2-148; (6), [1], 2-164; engraved frontispiece and plates facing B1r and 2B1r.

Gilt edges. Bookplate at the front (see below). The true first edition, Teerink A with all the first issue points. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state as usual. All six maps and plans present. Decorative woodcut and engraved head- and tailpieces throughout. Ã’GulliverÕs Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fameÉ the brilliance and thoroughness with which his logic and invention work out the piquancies of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputian and then by a mimikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the authorÕs original intentionsÓ (Printing and the Mind of Man, 185). Thus while Swift may have originally set out to write another of his razor-like satires, generations of readers including children love this book for the interminably entertaining story line. This copy was cleaned and rebound c. 1920, as books often were at that time, perhaps for Mrs. Poole. From the Caroline Boeing Poole Collection, sold by B.M. Rosenthal in 1977. Armorial bookplate bound in of Thomas Macro DD of Bury St Edmunds and Great Yarmouth (d.1743/4, aged 60); he was University Librarian at Cambridge so he might well have been an active book buyer and perhaps bought this copy when it was published as it is the rare first issue which was radically changed almost immediately after being published (see John Blatchly, Some Suffolk and Norfolk ex-libris.

      Sixty finely engraved plates. 8 p.l., 153 pp., [5] pp. Folio, cont. boards (a bit soiled & rubbed). Leipzig: C. Zunkel, 1726. First edition of one of the most important volumes in Leupold's series Theatrum Machinarum, or "Theater of Machines"; this was the most complete and richly illustrated work on engineering and machinery published, not just up until that time, but for many years to follow. "Leupold's treatise is the most comprehensive of all the early bridge books and the first to be published in Germany. It was inspired by Gautier's influential work and covers masonry, pontoon, floating and military bridges but is particularly notable for the material on long-span timber-truss bridges. Leupold writes with authority on this type of structure, of which there was a long tradition in Germany, taking as examples some recently-built bridges and making an attempt to illustrate the behaviour of beams and trusses and to describe the properties of timber; in this he follows Galileo and anticipates Buffon."­Elton, Cat. 2, 58. Leupold (1674-1727), a Leipzig mechanical engineer, established a workshop to manufacture mathematical and mechanical instruments. His numerous books describe the latest technological developments of the day. Fine fresh copy. .
