CHETWOOD, William Rufus]
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 slipcase, 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.

Abreu, Joseph Francisco Antonio Ignacio Noberto Augostinho Bras luis de
Coimbra: Joam Antunes, 1726. First edition. Hardcover. g+. Folio. [42], 763, [1], 16pp. Original speckled calf with gold lettering, tooling and ruling on spine. Raised bands. Title page in red and black lettering. Decorative head-, tailpieces, and initials. Only edition and all published of this wonderfully zany early 18th century attempt at a modern Portuguese Pliny! Although primarily concerned with debunking the false medical practices of his day, exposing charlatans and attacking ineffective and/or dangerous pharmaceutical compounds widely sold as medicine, this volume touches, i.e., on pygmies, eating and drinking customs, cadavers, the mechanical and liberal arts, metals, meteorology, typhoons, chiromancy and androids. Each of the twenty major sections is devoted to a single animal (man, lynx, elephant, wolf, etc..), and Abreu weaves a net of interrelation between the animal's physiology, emblematic value, the diseases it symbolizes and the cures appropriate to them. For instance, the ass opens the door to his opinions on medical ignorance. He doesn't hesitate to name colleagues he feels employ the incorrect or harmful treatments, to snipe at medical astrologers and decry the popularity of mountebanks. He himself, however, contributes a sonnet to each section, frequent notes on the ethical and moral values attached to particular disorders, a lenghty digression on magic including many incantations and a 350-line verse romance. His citations mix classical with contemporary writings, but show a particular emphasis on 17th and 18th century Portuguese physicians. Abreu's … [Click Below for Full Description]

(4),XXXII,(4),468 pp. First edition; with armorial bookplate of Thomas Lloyd. - 'Captains Shelvocke and Clipperton led a privately financed privateering expedition to attack Spanish shipping. Shelvocke gave his superior officer the ship in a stom 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 prices. His vessel, the Speedwell, was wrecked at Juan Fernàndez 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' (Hill p.554). 'From the Brazilian aspect, Shelvocke's voyage is of interest because he landed at Santa Catharina, and describes it at length in a special chapter' (Borba de Moraes p.796). 'In the map of the world California is shown as an island. Two of the plates represent male and female inhabitants of California. Shelvocke has the fullest accounts of California, the natives and other features, of any of the old voyagers' (Cowan p.212). Selvocke's controversial narrative is probably best known as the inspiration behind the albatross inciden … [Click Below for Full Description]

La Roque, Jean de].
London, printed for G. Strahan and R. Williamson, 1726. 8vo. XII, 312 pp. With folding map and 3 plates. Later binding in contemporary panelled style mit red morocco label to gilt spine. The rare first English edition of this conflation of reports from French expeditions to Arabia during the years 1708-13, first published in French in 1716. "It was with distinct literary skill that La Roque, who himself had visited Syria in 1689, prepared a construed travel report from the notes of various members of the first French expeditions to Arabia and Yemen. The 'Travels to Happy Arabia' well suited the tastes of the time. The well-founded knowledge which La Roque owed to the observations of Captain Merveille and his companions allowed him to provide the first detailed account of Arabic coffee plantations and the coffee trade of the Peninsula" (cf. Schnyder/v. Waldkirch, Wie Europa den Kaffee entdeckte, p. 207f.). The Atabey copy sold at Sotheby's in 2002 (lot 1473) commanded £2,868. - Occasional duststaining, but well-preserved altogether. Provenance: from the library of William Alfred Eddy (1896-1962) with his armorial bookplate ("Crux mihi grata quies" - The Cross is to me a welcome rest) on pastedown. The Sidon-born Eddy, fluent in Arabic and Arabic culture, variously served as U.S. Marine Corps officer, Aramco consultant, U.S. minister to Saudi Arabia, university professor of English Literature and college president, intelligence operative and one of the fathers of the CIA.

BINDING MARIE LESCZYNSKA, QUEEN CONSORT OF LOUIS XV -- GLANVILL, Joseph (1636-1680).
London: printed for A. Bettesworth, J. Batley, W. Mears, and J. Hooke, 1726. Hardcover. Very Good . 8vo (200 x 120mm). [12], 35, [10], 498 pp. 4pp., ads at rear. Each part with full-page engraved frontispiece, first of Saul encountering vision of Samuel, and second of six scenes including demonic possession, witchcraft, flying, and a deathbed. Title printed in red and black, large plate in the second part giving the dimensions of two stones, three in text figures of diagrams for soul and spirit lines, and ornamental woodcut head and tail-pieces throughout. Bound in a remboitage binding of French armorial, full red morocco in fanfare design, elaborately tooled in gilt and with the arms of Marie Leszczynska (1703-1768), France’s much loved Polish Queen, to the covers, spine with a contemporary red morocco lettering label “GLANVIL ON WITCHES” likely from an early English binding, later red silk pastedowns and endpapers, the silk front pastedown signed by “Saint Yves 350 Rue St. Honore”; (title lightly toned around edges, joints starting and light spotting, but otherwise good). An English note in a late eighteenth or early nineteenth century hand discussing corrections to contents, and few marginal notes throughout. A curious and beautiful remboitage, the reclaiming of the royal heraldic binding of Marie Lescyznska seems likely from the clue of the early twentieth century binder’s stamp of Saint Yves of Rue St. Honoré. The binder can be located in a 1905 advertisement and is described as leather worker and heraldic engraver; it is likely that the Parisian binder Saint … [Click Below for Full Description]

1726. Suggestive stampe che, in due scene, raffigurano con dovizia di particolari uno dei classici rituali attribuiti alla genìa delle streghe, il "sabba", ovvero l'abituale raduno notturno del sabato in luoghi magici, ove si compiono sortilegi e si danzano ridde infernali. Inframmezza il titolo, in basso al centro, lo stemma del Conte di Vence, proprietario dei dipinti eseguiti con la finezza e la fantasia che resero celebre il Téniers presso i contemporanei nella sua vastissima produzione (cfr. Bénézit, III, pp. 529-33). Le depart.... La scena è ambientata all'interno di un antro fumoso ove svolazzono pipistrelli e strani pesci volanti: a destra, sta per spiccare il volo a cavallo di una scopa fiammeggiante una bella fanciulla ignuda, sospinta dalla fattucchiera alle sue spalle attorniata da mostruose creature (tra cui immancabile il caprone). A sinistra, una megera, seduta accanto a uno spaventevole demonio, sta preparando un filtro magico; a terra sono sparsi vari oggetti, strumenti del "mestiere", quali un teschio, carte da gioco, un pugnale, una clessidra, ecc., insieme a parole arcane incise in semicerchio. Arrivèe...Il convegno è intorno a un gran trave conficcato nel terreno, illuminato da una lanterna posta alla sua base e da uno spicchio di luna tra le nuvole, a destra. La scopa fiammeggiante è "parcheggiata" tra le mani della figura mezzo-uomo e mezzo-animale, a destra, una delle orride creature che si affollano intorno alle due streghe che impugnano l'una una torcia fumante, l'altra una pala. Anche qui non mancano pipistrelli, pesci volanti, una civetta, le tes … [Click Below for Full Description]
