        Travels Into Several Remote Nations of the World in Four Parts by Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships [Gulliver's Travels]

      Benjamin Motte, London, 1726. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Full contemporary paneled calf, neatly rebacked. Mixed states, volume 1 is Teerink's state AA (290) throughout, volume II is the text of Teerink's "second edition" (293) but the main title and Part IV title of state B (291). Though the first three states in Teerink's methodology were proven to be separate editions, he continued to refer to them as states because that is how the printers thought of them - by traditional measures this is a second edition with a mixed 3rd/4th. Likely paired very early on or even originally (the bindings are very similar - though not identical - and one has "Joseph Parsons" on the rear endpaper and one "John Parsons"), it was fairly common for title pages to be substituted as they were exhausted. In any case, a nice pair of an early edition of one of the great satires and one of the the World's most lastingly comic works of fiction. Four maps, two plans, light foxing and browning, a few small stains in the margins, tears and notes to endpapers, one or two marginal notes. xii, 148, (6), 164, (6), 155, (1), 199, (1)pp. Size: Octavo (8vo). 2-volume set (complete). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Literature & Literary; Antiquarian & Rare. Inventory No: 044336. .

        TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. [GULLIVER'S TRAVELS]

      London: Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726. FIRST EDITION, Third Issue (Teerink's "B" Edition) . Hardcover. 197 x 127 mm (7 3/4 x 5"). Usual misnumbered pages in volume I; 16-page publisher's catalogue at the end of volume II. Two volumes. FIRST EDITION, Third Issue (Teerink's "B" Edition). Quite pretty 19th century speckled calf by Lloyd & Wallis (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with gilt French fillet border, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with central floral sprig surrounded by small tools and floral cornerpieces, one red and one green morocco label, densely gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With frontispiece portrait of Gulliver (in the second state), four maps, and two plans. Front pastedown with bookplate of Mrs. L. Bartlett. Teerink 291; PMM 185; Rothschild 2108. Joints somewhat rubbed and flaked (though not with any cracks), extremities a bit worn, spines uniformly darkened a shade and with a hint of abrasion (the gilt also slightly dulled), minor marks and spots to boards, but the attractively decorated bindings entirely solid and still rather pretty. First volume with variable browning and offsetting throughout, noticeable in two gatherings (perhaps because of washing?), second volume much better, with only a hint of browning right at edges, isolated trivial defects like a rust spot here and there, but the text in both volumes otherwise fresh and clean. This is the third distinct issue (all printed within two months of each other) of the first edition of probably the greatest satire in the English language. A book with the special merit of appealing to readers of every age, the work ostensibly mocks the popular travel writings of the day, but "Gulliver" was in fact a subtle but potent attack on the contemporary political situation. While most works that rely on current fashions and politics quickly become dated, this one has transcended its time to give Swift immortality because of what PMM calls his two great gifts, "a sustained logic in invention and a facility for absorbing the reader till fiction becomes reality." When the first run sold out within a week of its October 28 printing, the publisher immediately went to work to satisfy demand, with two more issues appearing before the end of the year, ours being published in December.

Les pièces sont de longueur constante, entre 800 et 1100 vers, elles sont principalement psychologiques, et surtout apolitiques, en opposition aux pièces d'Aristophane. Elles mettent en scène les tourments du coeur et de l'âme. Térence fut l'un des premiers auteurs latins à introduire le concept d'Humanitas dans ses différentes oeuvres.

Sotto la linea marginale superiore, al centro titolo, a sinistra cartiglio a foggia di drappo, recante l'arma civica di Cuneo affiancata da 26 richiami in latino; sopra il bordolinea inferiore, a sinistra scala graduata e a destra indicazione "Iuvenalis Boettus Fossanensis, delineavit", nonché numero 35.

Blaeu, nel 1682, sotto il titolo di Theatrum Statuum Regiæ Celsitudinis Sabaudiæ Ducis [...]. L'immagine raffigura una veduta dall'alto della città piemontese di Cuneo; l'abitato appare munito di robuste strutture difensive con bastioni, a causa della sua importanza strategica; interessante è, inoltre, la descrizione dei dintorni della città, con i fiumi Gesso e Stura. G. Boetto fu ingegnere, architetto e topografo al servizio dei duchi di Savoia, oltre che geniale incisore. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

        Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World In four parts.

      London Printed for Benj. Motte. 1726 - First Edition of Gulliver's Travels [SWIFT, Jonathan]. Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In four parts. By Lemuel Gulliver.London: Printed for Benj. Motte., 1726. First edition, Teerink’s State A, with the following points: Part I, p. 35, line 5 has "Subsidies" correctly spelled; Part III, p. 74 is misnumbered "44;" Part III, G6 is a cancel, with "Part III" at foot; Part IV, p. 52, line 1 has the misprint "buth is." Four parts in two octavo volumes. xvi, 148; [6], 164; [6], 155, [1]; [8], 199, [1] pp. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state, with the inscription "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of Redriff. Ætat. suæ LVIII." around the oval the the tablet bearing a Latin inscription (printed on paper with vertical chain-lines), four maps, and two plans. Modern antique-style mottled calf. Gilt double-rule border on covers, gilt spines with red and green morocco labels, gilt board edges, edges sprinkled red, marbled endpapers. Small ink stain on frontispiece portrait. Short tear to upper margin of B7 in Part I. Some inoffensive washing at the beginning of Volume II. A little light foxing and soiling. Early ink signatures on recto of frontispiece and on title-page of Volume I. Otherwise an excellent set. Housed together in a red morocco clamshell case. Gulliver’s Travels, to use the popular title, is one of the greatest satires in the English language—or 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 "would last as long as the language, because it described the vices of man in all nations" (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.

Cominciò pure a pubblicare opere di medicina pratica, scegliendo l’anonimato o utilizzando pseudonimi Accanto all’attività scientifica e didattica, portò avanti la professione medica sia come membro degli organismi direttivi della sanità ferrarese, occupandosi tra l’altro di un’epidemia bovina scoppiata nel 1711 e dedicandosi ad aggiornare la farmacopea ufficiale nel territorio dell’ex Ducato estense, sia come medico di personaggi più o meno altolocati, rispondendo anche a richieste di consulto provenienti da varie parti d’Italia.

        Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica. Editio tertia aucta & emendata

      London: Apud Guil. & Joh. Innys, 1726 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. 3rd Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. LARGE PAPER COPY. 4to (289x225 mm), [4: blank], [34], 530, [6], [4: blank] pp., including half-title, engraved frontispiece portrait, dedication leaf, Halley&#39;s verses; numerous woodcut diagrams and the engraving on p. 506. Full diced calf of the period (rebacked, extremities worn and scuffed), marbled endpapers. Very minor occasional staining, some, mainly marginal browning and soiling, portrait lightly foxed. With the armorial bookplate of Spains Hall, Finchingfield, Essex on the front pastedown, and the stencilled name of S.R. Ruggles, Clare Hall on the front flyleaf. An exceptionally large and bright copy. <br><br>PMM 161 (describing the first edition); Babson 13; Gray 9; Wallis 9; HBS 64483. ----- <br><br>The stated third edition, this one of the 200 large-paper copies on "General Royal Paper" with the "CC" watermark. The absence of the license leaf from this copy, as with some of the known copies of the large paper copies, suggests that they were produced prior to the regular paper version. The Babson catalogue notes that the license leaf had no assigned signature location, and is found at various places in copies of the regular edition. This edition was the last published during the author&#39;s lifetime and is the basis for all subsequent editions. The editor was Henry Pemberton, M.D., F.R.S., and this rescension of the text contains a new preface by Newton and a large number of alterations. The most important of these is in the scholium on fluxions, in which Leibniz had been mentioned by name in the earlier editions. His name is absent here, leading to claims that Newton was avoiding sharing credit for the development of calculus with his Continental rival..

        Travels into several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships.

      Benj. Motte 1726 - Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726. frontispiece portrait (in second state) and 6 further plates. A mixed set, the first volume being from the Teerink AA (second) edition (with the word &#147;Captain&#148; on the title page broken after &#147;Cap&#148; and then continued on the next line) and the second volume from the Teerink B (third) edition (with no comma after &#147;Year&#148; on special IV title page). 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 &#145;advisable to stick to the well-established practice of calling the three 1726 editions first&#146;, in part because both the printer and the author thought of them that way. Very good in leather bindings and highly gilt-decorated spines. The first volume measures 19.2 cm tall and the second volume is 20.3 cm tall. Housed in a custom-made collector&#146;s slipcase. (ESTC T139450, T139452; Teerink-Scouten 290, 291). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [72 Versetl Sammt 212 Toccaten besonders zum Kirchen-Dienst bey Choral-Aemtern und Vesperen dienlich]

      [Vienna]: [F.A. Dietell, engraver]. [1726]. Oblong quarto. 18th century dark brown calf with raised bands on spine in decorative compartments gilt. 2ff. (dedications), 88 pp. Engraved. An elegantly-printed collection, with attractive printed calligraphic flourishes to titling to many pieces.& & With the signature of "Zenetti" to foot of first dedication, quite possibly the Austrian composer and early teacher of Anton Bruckner, Leopold von Zenetti (1805-1892) who encouraged Bruckner &#39;s study of Bach&#39;s Well-Tempered Clavier.& & From the famed music collection of André Meyer and with the collection stamp to the rear blank endpaper. & & Binding slightly worn, rubbed and bumped; rebacked; head and tail of spine slightly frayed. Very slightly worn, soiled and stained; tear to pp. 45/46 repaired; small hole to pp. 83/84 with very minor loss. Lacking title (as in 7 of the 20 known copies). . RISM M8133, MM8133. & & Muffat is considered "the leading keyboard composer in Vienna in the early 18th century... [He] was appointed official court organist in 1717: he was required to play for services in the Hofkapelle and to provide continuo accompaniment for performances of operas... Subsequently, he acquired additional duties at court, including the tuition of various children of the imperial family, among them the future Empress Maria Theresa... After the death of the Emperor Karl VI in 1740 and with the accession of Maria Theresa, the resources of the Hofkapelle were reorganized, bringing Muffat his final promotion to first organist in 1741..."& & "... He came at the end of a long line of Baroque organists and keyboard composers working in Vienna and was the only contemporary of Bach there to make a substantial contribution to the keyboard repertory in both quantity and quality..."& & "... Muffat&#39;s versets, like his ricercares, belong to a well-established tradition. His chief predecessors in this field were Kerll (Modulatio organica, 1686), the anonymous author of the Kurtzer, jedoch gründlicher Wegweiser (Augsburg, 1689) &#150; an organ tutor containing versets for practice &#150; Speth (Ars magna, 1693) and Murschhauser (Octi-tonium, 1696). These publications were all familiar to Viennese organists in the early 18th century. Muffat used the same kind of external structure as they did, arranging his pieces according to the order of the church tones, with a short introductory toccata and a regular number of versets in each tone. He followed their internal structure also in the miniature fugal form of his versets. Like Murschhauser he left the function of the versets open and avoided reference to chant, so they are not restricted to one part of the liturgy. The elimination of chant is one aspect of a general process of secularization of style culminating with Muffat: more than his predecessors, he used strongly secular, even rustic, subjects (often in dance rhythms). He also applied a wide range of ornamentation symbols and provided an explanatory table similar to the one in the Componimenti. Although French composers were using copious ornamentation and secular dance styles in liturgical organ music from at least the mid-17th century, Muffat was the first among Austro-German composers to absorb these trends fully into the traditional verset." Susan Wollenberg in Grove online& & None of Muffat&#39;s autographs appear to be extant. & & Zenetti was organist and choirmaster in the town of Enns, where Bruckner went three times a week to study organ, piano and harmony. It was through Zenetti that Bruckner was first introduced to Bach&#39;s Well-Tempered Clavier and to his chorales and organ music. Zenetti&#39;s library was dispersed; portions are now held at the Austrian National Library, the Museum of the City of Enns, and the archives of the city of Linz. & & It may be conjectured that Bruckner consulted this copy of Muffat&#39;s work during his studies with Zenetti.

        P. Virgilii Maronis Opera

      Paris - Sumptibus Fratrum Barbou, 1726 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A lovely copy of Charles de la Rue&#39;s publication of the works of Virgil. In Latin. With engraved frontispiece, vignette title, elaborate decorative head and tail pieces and capitals throughout, and one folding map. With notes and introduction by Charles de la Rue. Charles de La Rue (3 August 1643 27 May 1725), known in Latin as Carolus Ruaeus, was one of the great orators of the Society of Jesus in France in the seventeenth century. He entered the novitiate on 7 September 1659, and being afterwards professor of the humanities and rhetoric, he attracted attention while still young by a poem on the victories of Louis XIV. Pierre Corneille translated it and offered it to the king, saying that his work did not equal the original of the young Jesuit. He wrote several tragedies, published an edition of Virgil, and wrote several Latin poems. After having several times refused to permit him to go to Canada, his superiors assigned him to preaching; as an orator he was much admired by the court and the king. His funeral orations on the Dukes of Burgundy and Luxemburg, and that on Jacques-Bnigne Bossuet, his sermons on Les Calamits publiques and The Dying Sinner have been regarded as masterpieces by the greatest masters. He preached missions among the Protestants of Languedoc for three years. He was a most virtuous religious, and during his last years endured courageously great infirmities. Publius Vergilius Maro (October 15, 70 BC September 21, 19 BC), usually called Virgil or Vergil in English, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues (or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. Virgil is traditionally ranked as one of Rome&#39;s greatest poets. His Aeneid has been considered the national epic of ancient Rome from the time of its composition to the present day. Modeled after Homer&#39;s Iliad and Odyssey, the Aeneid follows the Trojan refugee Aeneas as he struggles to fulfill his destiny and arrive on the shores of Italyin Roman mythology the founding act of Rome. Virgil&#39;s work has had wide and deep influence on Western literature. Condition: Rebacked with original vellum boards and backstrip laid over. Externally very sound, though with large marks. Institutional notation to spine. Hinges have been reinforced. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright aside from mild marginal age-toning, with light scattered spotting, marginal tidemarks to the index. Overall: VERY GOOD.

The first volume, &#39;Naturall Arithmetique&#39; was then, at Wingate&#39;s request, revised and augmented by John Kersey [ 1616 - 1677 ] and published in 1650, with a seven chapter supplement by Kersey. 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 &#39;rule of proportion&#39;, an instrument for performing logarithmic calculations. This work, part one of Wingate&#39;s original, had been intended to be &#39;onely a key to open the secrets of the other, which treats of artificial arithmetique performed by logarithms&#39; 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&#39;s work is a series of mathematical conundrums & puzzles.

        Archive of Scarce and Significant Broadsides on Tobacco, from Berlin, Concerned Primarily with Despotism over Manufacturing, Selling, Exporting, and Using Tobacco at a Personal Level

      Berlin, 1726-1770 Seven official decrees issued by the Royal Prussian Court, dealing solely with tobacco usage and trade. The earliest are printed by Christian Albrecht Gäbert, the others by Georg Jacob Decker. Folio. Double leafs, early handmade laid paper, untrimmed edges, several featuring woodcut engravings. Text is in German, ranging from 2-6pages of text, each document concluding with the woodcut initials &#39;LS&#39; in cameo. Very good original condition, beautifully preserved. Seven separate edicts, from Berlin mid-1700s, are concerned primarily with despotism over manufacturing, selling, exporting, and even using tobacco at a personal level. Topics specifically address matters of potential fire induced by tobacco smoke, quality improvement, regulations and privileges for cigar makers, collection of duties on tobacco and transport, taxation of imported tobaccos, proper procedures for purchasing and selling which most often bereaves any small grower or entrpreneur from profit, and, finally, penalties for disobeying the laws. The collection includes the following: 22 June 1726. 3 pages, issued by the March (Margraviate) of Brandenburg, a major principality of the Holy Roman Empire, prohibits tobacco smoking in the any wooded terrain, forests, and the like. 20 October 1742. 2 pages with a cherub and crown woodcut engraving, prohibits civilians from smoking on hay wagons, and from bringing cigars into a barn. 8 July 1744. 6 pages on 2 double leafs, with a cherub and crown woodcut engraving, issued by the March (Margraviate) of Brandenburg,concerning careless and dangerous tobacco smoking practices. The substantial edict reinstates or re-proclaims an edict of 28 April 1723, appears to present consequences for contravening the law, and mentions in the first paragraph Valangin in Neufchatel-en-Bray, Haute-Normandie, France. Annotations from 1746 to front. 3 May 1745. 3 pages with a cherub and crown woodcut engraving, issued by the March (Margraviate) of Brandenburg, being a declaration of general privileges for the tobacco spinner, also known as a cigar maker, which regulates the market, specifically preventing the sale of any tobacco which does not bear the official "duties paid" sticker, and also preventing the purchase of tobacco from directly from farmers. 4 September 1766. 2 pages with a lovely regal woodcut engraving, a declaration of the 15th article, which controls the rights for trade, preventing civilians to sell tobacco to anyone other the Prussian state government. 20 February 1768. 3 pages, outlines eight separate points, this edict addresses foreign shipment and trade, specifically naming Chur, Prussia, Pomerania, Magdeburg, Halberstadt, and Silesia, stating that all shipments must be appropriately recorded and also reported to the authorities. 1 August 1770. 6 pages on 2 double leafs, with three woodcut engravings, comprises nineteen matters on the subject of tobacco contravention, outlining penalties for the illegal possession or transgressional usage of tobacco on which duties have not been paid. .

        Descripcion del Destricto del Audiencia de la Española

      One of the few Spanish maps of the Caribbean. 1726. Madrid. Wide margins, strong impression, slight toning, washed, else excellent. 300 mm x 296 mm. Copper engraved map of the Caribbean, published in 1726 in Herrera ´s Historia general de los hechos de los castellanos en las Islas I Tierra firme del Mar Oceano. Pristine example of one of the only Spanish maps of their colonies in the Caribbean. The map extends from Florida, the extreme Eastern side of Central America, the Caribbean Islands ?with a large Cuba- to the Northern part of South America, particularly Venezuela and Colombia. Spanish maps are extremely rare, the reason of their scarcity is often attributed to Spain´s government secrecy policy. On the upper right corner, a ?cartouche? is placed detailing the names of the places contained in the map. Extremely large original margins, uncoloured as issued.

        Shakespeare restored:

      London: For R. Francklin, J. Woodman and D. Lyon, and C. Davis,, 1726. Or, a Specimen of the Many Errors, as well Committed, as Unamended, by Mr. Pope In his Late Edition of this Poet. Designed Not only to correct the said Edition, but to restore the True Reading of Shakespeare in all the Editions ever yet publish&#39;d. Quarto (286 × 226 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco label, spine with gilt devices in compartments, two-line gilt rules either side of raised bands, covers ruled round in blind with two-line fillet, floral roll gilt to board-edges, red sprinkled edges. Fresh, clean, and large, a very handsome copy, from the Evelyn family library, with Lady Evelyn&#39;s simple and elegant book label. First edition, first issue, with Francklin spelled thus in the imprint. In Theobald&#39;s own words, this is "the first Essay of literal Criticism upon any Author in the English tongue." Pope&#39;s Shakespeare (1725) had many passages of "intolerable Carelessness interspers&#39;d thro&#39; all six Volumes." Theobald offers in response 132 pages of cruces in Hamlet and an appendix of 62 compressed pages devoted to other plays. Theobald&#39;s key perception was that Shakespeare wrote secretary script, and his own experience of that form of handwriting and of prompt books allowed him precisely to visualize manuscript copy and the kinds of misreading such copy might induce in a printed text. These considerations are brought to bear on his brilliant emendation of the first folio&#39;s (1623) mystifying "and a Table of greene fields" in the Hostess&#39;s report of Falstaff&#39;s death (Henry V, II.iii.16&#150;17), to Theobald&#39;s proposed reading "&#151;for his Nose was as sharp as a Pen, and a&#39; babled of green Fields" (p. 138). Theobald is generally adjudged "the best all-round editor of Shakespeare in [his] period or any other" (Vickers, 1) and "one of the finest editors of the last three centuries" (G. Taylor, in Wells, 54). Theobald established several fundamentals in Shakespearean scholarship: "first, Shakespeare clearly becomes an author to be studied, in addition to being heard on the stage; second, what Shakespeare wrote takes precedence over the taste of his editor, literary fashions, grammar, usage, and predilections of later readers. Recovery of Shakespeare&#39;s &#39;genuine&#39; text is established &#133; for the first time as a specifically scholarly activity, separated as far as possible from literary criticism, which, in his then novel opinion, could only be practised when the text was reliable" (ODNB). Over 300 of the emendations introduced by his 1733 edition of Shakespeare are still accepted by modern editors. Peter Seary, in Lewis Theobald and the editing of Shakespeare, describes him as "the founder of modern scholarship devoted to Renaissance English literature.

        A Cruising Voyage Round the World: First to the South-Seas, thence to the East Indies, and homewards by the Cape of Good Hope. Begun in 1708, and finished in 1711 ... The Second Edition, Corrected

      London: Printed for Bernard Lintot, 1726. 8vo. (7 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches). 5 engraved folding maps, 2 folding plates. Contemporary speckled calf, covers with a double fillet gilt border, spine with raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment. An important account of an early Pacific voyage and a British buccaneering classic: this edition with two additional plates of alligators not found in the first edition. Rogers, who was accompanied by William Dampier as his pilot, went out via Cape Horn, rescued Alexander Selkirk from the island of Juan Fernandez (making this the source book for Robinson Crusoe, with an account of his experiences), and then attacked Spanish shipping on the west coast of South America and Mexico, succeeding in taking the Acapulco galleon in 1709, as well as other prizes. The expedition went as far north as California, and put into various ports in South America. The maps show the voyagers&#39; track around the world and the South Sea coast of America from the island of Chiloe to Acapulco. The sources for some of these maps include manuscripts taken from the Spanish on the expedition. Rogers&#39;s eyewitness account of his adventures provides an important contemporary source for its vivid descriptions of buccaneering life on the high seas. This edition, stated on the title as the second but actually the fourth, is desirable for the additional plates not found in the previous: "It is the same as the second edition of 1718, except for a new title and the addition of two plates representing the alligator and crocodile, drawn from life" (Hill). This edition considerably more scarce than the first edition of 1712 or the second edition of 1718. Hill 1480; Howes R421, "b"; Sabin 72755; Wagner, Spanish Southwest 78 (first edition); Borba de Moraes, p. 744 ("very rare"); NMM, Piracy & Privateering, 472 (first edition).

        Travels into several remote nations of the world. In four parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, first a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships [Teerink "B"]

      printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle-Temple Gate, in Fleet-Street, London: printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle-Temple Gate, in Fleet-Street,& , M,DCC,XXVI. [1726]. First Edition. Full Calf. Fine. Four parts in two octavo volumes, with continuous pagination to each volume (the parts of the first two editions/issues were separately paginated, giving rise to the suggestion they were originally issued in parts): viii,[4],148,[6],149-310; [6],154,[8],155-353,[1]pp (numerous misnumbered pages, but text continuous and complete), engraved frontispiece portrait of Lemuel Gulliver by Sturter Sheppard, in second state, printed on paper with vertical chain lines, with "Captain Lemuel Gulliver of Redriff. Ætat. suæ LVIII." around the oval and beneath, on a tablet where the inscription first appeared, a quotation, in Latin, from Persius; five engraved maps (two for Part III and one for each of the other Parts), and engraved plate depicting the writing machine in the "Grand Academy of Lagado" in Part III; decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces and historiated initials. Early nineteenth-century speckled calf, very skillfully rebacked; red and black morocco lettering pieces gilt; marbled end papers; all edges gilt; cloth slipcase. A superb presentation, bindings square, tight and unmarked; contents clean and fresh (unobtrusively washed with faded signature on title page, vol. II). Teerink-Scouten 291. Rothschild 2108. Printing and the Mind of Man 185. Grolier English 100, 42. & Third Issue/Edition (Teerink "B"), published in December 1726 (following appearance of the first issue on October 28). For nearly two hundred years, the three separate appearances of Gulliver&#39;s Travels from 1726 (Teerink A, AA and B) were considered different issues of a single first edition. Early in the twentieth century bibliographical analysis demonstrated that these were, in fact, separate editions, each set from the previous, but Teerink still thought it "advisable to stick to the well established practice of calling the three 1726 editions first," largely because the publisher (Benjamin Motte), as well as Swift (in letters to Pope and Ford) thought of them in that way, describing only the edition following Teerink B (the 1727 octavo edition) as "The Second Edition" (vol. 1 title page) and "The Second Edition, Corrected" (vol. 2 title page) and the 1727 duodecimo as the Third (all five published by Motte), "after which Bathurst&#39;s 1742, 1747 and 1751 editions as &#39;fourth,&#39; &#39;fifth&#39; and &#39;sixth&#39; follow in regular sequence." The several editions of 1726 all consist of two volumes of two parts each describing voyages to: I. Lilliput; II. Brobdingnag; III. Laputa, Balnibarbi, Luggnagg, Glubdubdrib, and Japan, and IV. the Country of the Houyhnhnms. "Gulliver&#39;s Travels has achieved the final apotheosis of a satirical fable, but it has also become a tale for children. For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the [book&#39;s] historical background, twenty have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story."

        The Voyages and Adventures of Captain Robert Boyle, in Several Parts of the World&#133;

      London: John Watts, , 1726. 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. 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. Engraved frontispiece of a ship attacked by natives, by van der Gucht, head- and tailpieces. 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. First edition. "Howes points out that Boyle&#39;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&#39;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.
