        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: Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726 [with:] TRAVELS INTO SEVERAL REMOTE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. BY CAPT. LEMUEL GULLIVER. VOL. III. [&] . VOL. III. PART II. A VOYAGE TO SEVARAMBIA &C

      Printed in the Year, London 1727 - Two volumes, with uniform third volume. viii,[4],310; [6],353pp. [with:] Two parts bound in one volume [8],118, [8],159pp. Octavo. Uniform contemporary paneled calf, gilt labels. Frontis portrait, 4 maps & two plans in the first two volumes; half-title and engraved frontis in the third volume. Old small manuscript shelf-label on each spine, engraved bookplate of Ricasoli Firidolfi in each volume on prelim, some wear to spine extremities and minor cracking to joints, some foxing and occasionally pronounced tanning (often varying between signatures), small wax drop in one blank margin, but a good set in a moderately well-preserved contemporary binding. Teerink's "B" edition (i.e. the third octavo edition), with the frontis portrait in the first volume in the second state, with the inscription within the oval frame rather than on a tablet below it, accompanied by the first edition of the spurious continuation. The 'A' edition appeared on 28 October 1726, the 'AA" edition in mid-November, and this 'B' edition, which was set up from the AA edition, was published in December. This, Swift's best known work, was published anonymously. Written in Dublin between about 1720 and 1725, the finished manuscript was brought to England by Swift when he left Ireland for London in March 1726. During his visit he stayed with friends, including Alexander Pope. Pope, along with John Gay and John Arbuthnot, helped Swift arrange for the publication of the book. Even after its publication Swift kept up the public pretence of having had no hand in it, but the immediate popularity of the work can be gauged from the fact that there were four printings within a year, translations into French, German, and Dutch, and the spurious continuation and other pastiches. The second part of the continuation was adapted from Siden's THE HISTORY OF THE SEVARITES (1675- 9), but the first part is an original imitation. During the 18th century, it was often included in translations of the genuine work. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 185. ROTHSCHILD 2108. TEERINK 291-2. BLEILER, p. 190. GROLIER ENGLISH HUNDRED 42.

First edition of Schwarz’ history of Pomerania, a second was printed in 1734.Albert Georg von Schwarz (1687–1755) was professor of history and philosophy at the University of Greifswald and wrote several works on Pomerania and its history. Historia finium principatus Rugiæ deals with the history of Rügen from the 11th-century to the end of the 17th-century, "sub regibus Sveciæ". Rügen belonged to Sweden from the Peace pf Westphalia 1648 to 1815. The book has a printed dedication to the Swedish Governor-General in Pomerania (and Rügen) Johan August Meyerfeldt. Together with the posthumously printed first edition of Bugenhagen’s history of Pomerania. A supplement (11 pp) was published to Bugenhagen, but is – as here – often missing. The reformator Johannes Bugenhagen, by Luther called "Doctor Pomeranus", (1485–1558) was a close friend of Martin Luther and introduced the Protestant Reformation in the Duchy of Pomerania – and also in Denmark – in the early 16th century. He was born in Wollin and educated in Greifswald. He later moved to Wittenberg and become one of Luther’s closest associates, and was a part of the team that translated the bible, and he was among the first to become a "Protestant doctor" of theology. He returned to Greifswald in 1539 and reformed the university to a protestant university, and he wrote several new church orders (Kirchenordnungen) for the northern German towns and Duchies, and for Denmark. Bugenhagen wrote his history of Pomerania, the first of its kind, already in 1517–18, but it remained unpublished until this edition by professor Jacob Henrich von Balthasar in 1728. Christian Ketelhot (c. 1492–1546) and six other monks introduced the Lutheran reformation in Stralsund in 1523, and the 200 years anniversary was celebrated in 1723. Langemak contains the first publication of "Apologie Ketelhots". (Zit. nach "Centralantikvariatet, catalogue 80 POMMERN")

      Typis Regiae Celsitudinis apud Tartinium et Franchium, 1727. in-4° (340x240 mm); leg. moderna in mezza pelle e tela ai piatti, con titolo in oro al tassello colorato in rosso, dorso liscio, tagli spruzzati di colore rosso; pp. XXXVI + 254 + (2); bellissime incisioni calcografiche al frontespizio, in corrispondenza di testate, capilettera e finali; numerosissime riproduzioni a stampa in b.n. nel testo raffiguranti epigrafi ed iscrizioni, incise su monumenti o lapidi, descritte nel testo; 21 tavole incise, di cui 1 tav. f.t. in corrispondenza della pag. XXV e 20 tavv. in fondo, di cui alcune doppie e ripiegate; caratteri rossi e neri al frontespizio. Prima edizione e una delle prime opere pubblicate dal grande archeologo Antonio Francesco Gori (1691-1757). Opera di pregio e di particolare interesse archeolgico, in cui l'A. descrive, indaga e illustra il "Colombario" (monumento funebre), scoperto sulla Via Appia nel 1726, eretto per lo schiavo e i servi di Livia Drusilla (Julia Augusta) (58 a.C. - 29 d.C.), madre di Tiberio, seconda moglie di Augusto. Il Colombario, una tomba comune e deposito per le urne, conteneva le ceneri dei morti (liberi e schiavi) della famiglia di Livia. Le incisioni alle testate ed ai finali dell'opera illustrano gemme antiche ed altri preziosi reperti di piccola scala, provenienti da collezioni contemporanee. Le belle tavole mostrano il Colombario, un piano, le sale di sepoltura con una miriade di nicchie lungo le pareti, una serie di sarcofagi romani decorati, e altre antichità funerarie ritrovate in quel luogo. Ogni tavola è dedicata ad un mecenate influente, tra i quali Joseph Smith e Sir Thomas Dereham. La scoperta del Colombario aveva anche catturato l'attenzione dell'allora direttore delle antichità di Roma, Francesco Bianchini, che ha pubblicato le sue scoperte nel libro "Camera ed iscrizioni sepolcrali ... della casa d'Augusto", che è apparso nello stesso anno. Rif.: IT\ICCU\VEAE\002437. OCLC, 23645736. Cicognara 3750; Rosetti, Rome, 5464; Borroni 8100. Cond.: Opera completa, in ottime condizioni generali, con carta che canta e con rari difetti peraltro di lieve entità (leggera macchia d'umido alle prime cinque carte, non interessante il testo; a pag. 9 mancanza di una piccola porzione di angolo non interessante il testo; a pag. 49 macchie d'inchiostro blu non interessanti il testo; le carte delle tavv. XII, XIX e XX sono tagliate inferiormente con leggera perdita dei titoli delle tavv. stesse). -- FIRST EDITION AND ONE OF THE EARLIEST WORKS PUBLISHED BY THE GREAT ANTIQUARY GORI, DESCRIBING AND ILLUSTRATING THE COLUMBARIUM (FUNERAL MONUMENT), DISCOVERED IN ROME ON THE VIA APPIA IN 1726. Hardcover, with 21 engraved plates (13 double-page), 3 engraved tail-pieces, 2 engraved head-pieces, 3 engraved initials, many woodcuts of funerary inscriptions in the text, title-page printed in red and black and with large engraved vignette; a very good, large, clean and crisp copy recently re-bound in quarter vellum and cloth, spine with gilt lettered red painted label, red speckled edges. First edition and one of the earliest works published by the great antiquary A.F. Gori (1691-1757). He describes, investigates and illustrates the "Columbarium" (funeral monument) at the Via Appia, discovered on the Via Appia in 1726. It was erected for the slave and servants of Livia Drusilla (Julia Augusta) (58 BC - 29 AD), mother of Tiberius, 2nd wife of Augustus. The Columbarium, a communal tomb and repository for urns, contained the ashes of dead men (free and slaves) from the household of Livia. The work is sumptuously produced with fine head- and tail-pieces incorporating ancient gems and other small-scale antiquities from contemporary collections. The fine plates show the Columbarium, a plan, the burial halls with its myriad niches lining the walls, a number of fine decorated Roman sarcophagi, and other funerary antiquities discovered there. Each plate is dedicated to an influential patron, among them Joseph Smith and Sir Thomas Dereham.The discovery of the Columbarium also ca

        Conjugal Lewdness: or, Matrimonial Whoredom

      London: Printed for T. Warner, 1727. First edition. Bound in contemporary full speckled calf with gilt rules, rebacked to style with original spine labels retained. Marbled end papers, all edges gilt, a Fine copy overall. With the bookplate of Henry Francis Readhead Yorke on the front paste-down. Extremely rare with the first issue title page, reissued as: "A Treatise Concerning The Use and Abuse of the Marriage Bed" a few months later. Last copy at auction (Christies 1995) brought $920 for the second issue; last copy with first issue title page offered in 1969. A critique of contemporary marriage practices, Defoe's text argues that men and women degrade the institution when they join together for mercenary reasons such as sex, social position, or economic stability. Wedding for these reasons leads to matrimonial whoredom rather than proper and holy matrimony. From the start, Defoe is adamant in defining marriage as companionate and equal, and in this way he lays critical groundwork for the women's rights movements of the next century. "The great Duty between the Man and his Wife, I take to consist in that of Love, in the Government of Affection...the Obligation is reciprocal, 'tis drawing in an equal Yoke; Love knows no superior or inferior, no imperious Command on one hand, no reluctant Subjection on the other...This is Matrimony in its just appointed meaning, whatever Notions our fashionable People may have of it.".

        Lettres de Monsieur Antoine Arnauld Docteur de Sorbonne.

      - A Nancy, aux dépens de Joseph Nicolaï [i.e. en Hollande], 1727-1743. 9 tomes reliés en 4 volumes in-8, demi-vélin à coins de l'époque, dos lisses titrés à la plume, tranches rouges. Edition originale de la correspondance du Grand Arnauld, donnée par Jacques Fouillou, diacre licencié de la Sorbonne, qui se retira en Hollande auprès de Pasquier Quesnel. Exceptionnel exemplaire complet du rare 9e volume et de son supplément en pagination séparée ; ces deux dernières parties parurent seize ans après les 8 premiers volumes. Cette volumineuse correspondance constitue l’une des sources fondamentales pour l’histoire intellectuelle de la période qui s’étend de 1640 à 1694, date de la mort l’auteur. « Le grand Arnauld n’a laissé ni mémoires ni autobiographie; sa correspondance est donc d’une importance capitale » (‘Sources de l’Histoire de France’, II, p. 266, n°1032). L’adresse de Nancy est fictive. Donnée comme imprimée à Amsterdam par Weller ('Falsche Druckorte’, p. 89), les parties 1 à 8 ont plus probablement été imprimées à Utrecht par Corneille Guillaume Le Febvre. Le tome IX et son supplément sans doute en France. (Colonia, ‘Dictionnaire des Livres jansénistes’, II, 414. Willaert, ‘Bibliotheca Janseniana Belgica’, 9609). Quelques craquelures et petits défauts de vélin. Exemplaire comportant la signature autographe ex-libris de « Frederic Ernest d’Isembourg » (Friedrich Ernst zu Isenburg, 1709 – 1784) en tête de chaque volume. Très bon exemplaire, frais, très bien relié à l'époque. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

This book is a response to a point in A Discourse of the Judicial Authority Belonging to the Office of Master of the Rolls in the High Court of Chancery (1727) by Philip Yorke, Earl of Hardwicke. Burroughs believes Yorke is incorrect when he stated that the Chancery court was directed by two judges that are not "co-ordinate, but in a subordination of one to the other" (3). Our copy once belonged to the library of Shirbirn Castle, the library of the Earls of Macclesfield, one of the finest private libraries in Great Britain. English Short-Title Catalogue T95693.

A RICHLY ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF OLEARIUS' CELEBRATED TRAVEL ACCOUNT, translated 70 years before by Abraham Wicquefort and edited by Van der Aa; from the collection of one of the most important families of the Belgian nobility. Olearius (Adam Oehlschlaeger, 1603-71) travelled to Ispahan on the Duke of Holstein's train during the Duke's official visit to the Tsar and the King of Persia; this was the first German expedition to Persia. "The head of the [Diplomatic] Mission was one Otto Brugman who according to Olearius was a boor and an idiot. [.] Brugman seems to have insulted every official along the way, molested Armenian women and heaped abuse on his subordinates. [.] Brugman came to a sad ending. He was executed on 5 May 1640 for adultery. Olearius, who had a most unpleasant stay in Persia, comments on many aspects of Persian life and what he witnessed [.] The ambassador and the author had an audience with Shah Safi whom he described as humourless. The author was probably unaware that Shah Safi was drunk most of the time" (Ghani). Olearius's account greatly influenced European opinion of Russia and Persia in the 17th and 18th centuries. The work is of great cartographic importance, particulary for its large map of the river Volga. The illustrations include a large folding plate of Riga, and fine views of Tver, Danzig, Moscow, Kazan, Samara, Bagdad and Ispahan, among many others. Atabey 884 (missing a leaf and with an engraved title from Van der Aa's 1719 edition); Boucher de la Richarderie I, 187 (wrong date); Brunet IV, 178; Ghani 286; Ulyaninskiy 3949.

Historiated headpieces, decorative initials and endpieces. Title page of the Matthew Gospel with publisher's device on title page.

Done into English, with additional notes. Numb. I (to be continu'd Monthly). The 256 page introductory essay describes at length the author's knowledge of ancient Jewish and non-Jewish sources. They explain their understanding of Devine wisdom as inspiration and truth, both in the life and time of Jesus and in their own day. The French edition was published in Amsterdam in 1718, translated and annotated by Isaac de Beausobre and Jacques Lentfant. I. de Beausobre (1659-1738), a French Protestant, migrated to Berlin in 1694, where he became chaplain to the King of Prussia, and counsellor of the royal Consistory. J. Lenfant (1661-1728) was pastor of the French Protestant church at Berlin and chaplain to the King (DM 3808). Beausobre was best known for his history of Manichaeism and Lenfant for his many works on church history. According to Thoams Thornton this edition distinguishes itself from other early translations of the Luther Bible in that it marks the supplementary words with considerable care. The english translation was done by Jeremiah Batley and Nonconformist minister Samuel Chandler (Steven DeRose, List of English Bible Versions, Translations, and Paraphrases). Our copy is complete with only St. Matthews being published in English (Herbert 980).Binding with front cover detached but present, back joint cracked but firm with small chips at head and tail of spine; wear along edges and rubbed.

      Translator, London 1727 - A magnificently bound complete first edition first issue, in folio, of Kaempfer's important work on Japan, one of the most influential histories to shape the West's conception of that country for over 150 years. The book contains all 45 plates called for, all in good condition, as well as both title pages and the additional title page containing symbols of various clans in Japan. It has been magnificently bound in beautiful full paneled calf, with period appropriate gilt work to the spines and morocco labels by a master binder. This is the scarce 1st edition 1st issue copy of 1727, which does not contain the "2nd Appendix" which was included in the 2nd issue of the work. The books are large folios measuring 15 x 9. They are magnificently rebound in full period calf leather with panels and blind tooling, five raised bands to the spines with era-appropriate gilt devices in the panels, red and green morocco labels, all in fine condition. End papers are renewed. The book is complete with all 45 plates as called for, many folding. Plates V and VI are out of order but still present. Both title pages are present as is the beautifully printed frontis title. Pagination is [12] Lii, 392 [4] 20 plates; [4] 393-612, 76, [4], 25 plates, [6]. One page has a short marginal tear, 2 pages have small marginal chips, page 39 of the appendix has a repaired tear at the top of the page with a small hole in the header, there is occasional browning and foxing, mostly at the beginning and end of the books, pages 241-245 have a bit more browning as well as some pencil notations. Throughout there is the slightest hint of browning/staining at the top edge - you can see this in the photos - but it is minor. Paper is crisp and wavy as is normal with this book. The plates are in good condition with just a bit of browning and age, the large folding map has the beginning of separation at the bottom gutter. Contains the list of subscribers, main titles in red and black. Binding is tight and firm. Engelbert Kaempfer (September 16, 1651 - November 2, 1716) was a German naturalist, physician, and writer known for his tour of Russia, Persia, India, South-East Asia, and Japan between 1683 and 1693. His History of Japan, published posthumously in 1727, was the chief source of Western knowledge about the country throughout the 18th and mid-19th centuries when Japan was closed to foreigners. At Kaempfer's death his mostly unpublished manuscripts were purchased by Sir Hans Sloane, and conveyed to England. Among them was a History of Japan, translated from the manuscript into English by Sloane's librarian John Gaspar Scheuchzer (1702-1729). It was first published at London, in 2 vols. , in 1727. The German version was not published until 50 years later, in 1777. A beautiful copy of this important and delightful work. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall [Attributes: First Edition]
