        Bibliotheca Menckeniana, quae Autores praecipue Veteres Graecos et Lat. Historiae item Literariae, Eccl. et Civilis, Antiquitatum ac Rei Nummariae scriptores, Philologos, Oratores, Poetas et Codices MSS. complectitur.

      - Engraved frontis. port. of J.B. Mencke. Title printed in red & black. 8 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 876 pp., [82] leaves. Thick 8vo, orig. limp boards (occasional minor foxing), uncut. Leipzig, J.F. Gleditsch & Son, 1727. Second edition, much enlarged (1st ed.: 1723) and a very lovely copy in original state; this was a very influential catalogue and was considered in its time to be the model of a universal bibliography. The Menckeniana is a catalogue of a specialized library particularly interesting to students of history and the history of learning. It was open to the public. The library was created by Otto Mencke (1644-1707), professor of moral philosophy at Leipzig University and founder of the Acta Eruditorum, the first great German scholarly journal. Mencke bequeathed the library to his son Johann Burckhard (1674-1732), professor of history at the same institution. The first edition of the Menckeniana was exhausted in two years, suggesting how important the catalogue was considered by other scholars. In the Preface to the second and larger edition of 1727 Mencken writes about serving scholars and complains about the difficulty of recovering books that had been lent. There is no suggestion at the time that he contemplated the sale of his library, but within a year he issued small priced catalogues and within five years he had disposed of his books. As we can see, an owner's catalogue can be an incidental means of selling a library. The largest part of the library was purchased in 1730 by Bünau and the remainder was auctioned in 1732. The catalogue contains one of the earliest instances of a frontispiece portrait in a library catalogue. The final leaves contain an author index, one of the earliest examples found in a private library catalogue. A very fine copy in original state. ? Folter 528.

Statical Essays: containing Haemastaticks; or, an Account of some Hydraulick and Hydrostatical Experiments made on the Blood and Blood-Vessels of Animals.To which is added, an Appendix, containing Observations and Experiments relating to several Subjects in the first Volume.With an Index to both Volumes. xxii, [26], 361, [23] pp. 8vo, cont. calf (upper joint with a tiny split at head), double gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: W. Innvs, R. Manby, & T. Woodward, 1733. First editions and a very fine, fresh, and crisp set in matching bindings; these are great classics of experimental science. This set belonged to the great biologist Abraham Trembley (1710-84), who is best known for his pioneer studies of hydra; he has been called "the father of experimental zoology." He has signed the title-page at the foot of Vol. I (along with the maiden name of his wife, Strassen). In the first volume, Hales "studied the movement of sap in plants and discovered what is now known as root pressure. He measured the amount of water lost by plants through evaporation and related this to the amount of water present in a given area of soil in which the plants were growing. He estimated rain and dewfall in this connexion, measured the rate of growth of shoots and leaves, and investigated the influence of light on plants. He experimented on gases and found that they were obtainable from plants by dry distillation. He was the first to realize that carbon dioxide was supplied to plants by the air and formed a vital part of the plant's food supply. These experiments led the way to those of Ingenhousz and de Saussure, while his ideas on combustion and respiration facilitated the discoveries of Black, Lavoisier and Priestley. "The second volume contains the studies in blood pressure which make Hales one of the founders of modern experimental physiology. The application of the principle of the pressure-gauge or manometer enabled him to measure blood pressure during the contraction of the heart. He computed the circulation rate and estimated the velocity of the blood in the veins, arteries and capillary vessels and by showing that the capillary vessels are liable to constriction and dilation he made an important contribution both to the study of physiology and the practice of the physician of today.Hales's work marked the greatest advance in the physiology of the circulation between Harvey and the introduction of the mercury manometer and other instruments for the measurement of blood pressure by J. L. M. Poiseuille in 1828."-Printing & the Mind of Man 189. Uniformly bound sets of first editions are of great rarity. ? I & II: Horblit 45a & b. I: Dibner, Heralds of Science, 26. II: Garrison-Morton 765-"the single greatest contribution to our knowledge of the vascular system after Harvey, and led to the development of the blood-pressure measuring instruments now in universal use.".

        L Empire de la Chine

      Artist: Bonne Rigobert (-1795) Paris; issued in: Paris ; date: 1779 1727 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 47 x 54 - description: Map shows total China with Corea. - Vita of the artist: Rigobert Bonne (1727?1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century.In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne?s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses.While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal.

"Each issue consisted of Houghton's lengthy editorial, plus one or more letters, covering all aspects of agriculture and land improvement and occasionally venturing into matters of commerce or popular science and technology; they dealt with matters then under active discussion by progressive agriculturalists. Houghton was the first to remark on the cultivation of the potato as a field crop, just beginning at the time (...) His correspondents included many small farmers, countrywomen, rural merchants, and husbandmen such as John Worlidge, besides his fellow members of the Royal Society, among them John Evelyn, John Flamsteed, Edmond Halley, and Robert Plot."

      Four folding engraved plates. Title printed in red & black. 2 p.l., xi, 372 pp., 2 leaves of ads. 8vo, cont. panelled calf (minor rubbing). London: J. Woodman & D. Lyon, 1727. First edition and a lovely copy. Bradley (1688-1732), first professor of botany at Cambridge, was one of the earliest British writers to treat agriculture as a science. His writings were prolific, including about twenty volumes dealing with agriculture. This book is one of his most important. "Cost of production was beginning to interest farmers more then it had done. For a hundred years the business had been steadily becoming more commercial. Instead of being rich because he grew a lot to eat, a man was beginning to find that he was only rich if he grew a lot to sell, and naturally he wanted to sell at a profit. To do that he must know what it cost him to grow the produce…and so writers began to insert costings in their books and Bradley was one of the earliest to do this. The Complete Body contains numerous costs, but I suspect they were of common knowledge rather than anything more immediately collected and closely scrutinized, yet they must have been accurate enough by the author's readers as not unreasonable."-Fussell, I, pp. 111-12. Fine crisp copy. ? D.S.B., II, p. 390.

He computed the circulation rate and estimated the velocity of the blood in the veins, arteries and capillary vessels and by showing that the capillary vessels are liable to constriction and dilation he made an important contribution both to the study of physiology and the practice of the physician of today...Hales's work marked the greatest advance in the physiology of the circulation between Harvey and the introduction of the mercury manometer and other instruments for the measurement of blood pressure by J. L. M. Poiseuille in 1828."-Printing & the Mind of Man 189. Uniformly bound sets of first editions are of great rarity. ? I & II: Horblit 45a & b. I: Dibner, Heralds of Science, 26. II: Garrison-Morton 765-"the single greatest contribution to our knowledge of the vascular system after Harvey, and led to the development of the blood-pressure measuring instruments now in universal use.".

        Holy Bible

      1727 - BIBLE. The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments". Oxford: John Baskett, 1727. Two volumes. Quarto, contemporary full red-brown elaborately gilt-tooled morocco rebacked with original spines laid down, raised bands, black morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $9200.Impressive 1727 Oxford quarto edition of the magisterial King James Bible, illustrated with six folding maps of "sacred geography" and 260 fine engravings by John Sturt "from designs of the greatest masters," beautifully bound together with a 1726 Book of Common Prayer, concordances and metrical psalter in a stunning elaborate morocco binding gilt-tooled in a "cottage roof" design."If everything else in our language should perish, [the King James Bible] would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power" (Macaulay). First published in 1611, the King James Bible is "the only literary masterpiece ever to be produced by a committee and was the work of nearly 50 translators". [who] lived at a period when the genius of the language was in full flower" (PMM 114). Bound with a 1726 Oxford edition of the Book of Common Prayer"""as a source of spiritual inspiration, it is for most Englishmen second only to the Bible" (PMM 75)""at the front of the second volume, preceded by an engraved frontispiece portrait of King George II. Sturt's engravings, printed and sold by Richard Ware, were designed to be fitted and bound with various "house" or family Bibles such as this one. In this copy, his fine engravings depicting dramatic scenes and important people from Scripture appear two to a plate with a lovely engraved ornament depicting angels beneath; the 130 plates are appropriately bound throughout the biblical text. The six engraved folding maps of Sacred Geography (also published by Ware, 1725), each measuring approximately 15 by 18 inches when unfolded, are also bound in at relevant points.

With additional engraved allegorical general title page; title page for Sturt's engravings; and title page printed in red and black for Sacred Geography. Apart from the 1727 general title page, the Bible conforms to Herbert 979, a 1726 Baskett quarto, with 1726 New Testament title page, Apocrypha present and Revelation ending on leaf 4I2b (although Herbert's copy lacked all, including title page, preceding F3). Griffiths 1726:3 (prayer book). Contemporary gift inscriptions ("Ann Bridges, a present from her Father the first visit she paid him after her Marriage").

      Engraved frontis. port. of J.B. Mencke. Title printed in red & black. 8 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 876 pp., [82] leaves. Thick 8vo, orig. limp boards (occasional minor foxing), uncut. Leipzig, J.F. Gleditsch & Son, 1727. Second edition, much enlarged (1st ed.: 1723) and a very lovely copy in original state; this was a very influential catalogue and was considered in its time to be the model of a universal bibliography. The Menckeniana is a catalogue of a specialized library particularly interesting to students of history and the history of learning. It was open to the public. The library was created by Otto Mencke (1644-1707), professor of moral philosophy at Leipzig University and founder of the Acta Eruditorum, the first great German scholarly journal. Mencke bequeathed the library to his son Johann Burckhard (1674-1732), professor of history at the same institution. The first edition of the Menckeniana was exhausted in two years, suggesting how important the catalogue was considered by other scholars. In the Preface to the second and larger edition of 1727 Mencken writes about serving scholars and complains about the difficulty of recovering books that had been lent. There is no suggestion at the time that he contemplated the sale of his library, but within a year he issued small priced catalogues and within five years he had disposed of his books. As we can see, an owner's catalogue can be an incidental means of selling a library. The largest part of the library was purchased in 1730 by Bünau and the remainder was auctioned in 1732. The catalogue contains one of the earliest instances of a frontispiece portrait in a library catalogue. The final leaves contain an author index, one of the earliest examples found in a private library catalogue. A very fine copy in original state. ? Folter 528.

      London: J. Roberts, 1727. First edition, first issue. Covers detached. 8vo. [12], 403pp. Title printed in red-and-black. Engraved frontispiece depicting a magician in his study. Contemporary English blind-paneled calf. Provenance: Gilbert East (1793 inscription at title gutter). "Defoe again begins with a humorous preface, in which he explains that if anyone was expecting, based on the title, to find a work of science, "'a Book of Rules for Instruction in the Practice, or a Magical Grammar for Introduction to young Beginners, all I can say to such is, that they will be mistaken."' The work is instead a history of the practice of magic, beginning in ancient times and traced down to the present day. He explains how the Magi first came to deal with the Devil, and how the Devil has continued to insinuate himself throughout history, appearing to and deceiving men with false signs and wonders" (Lilly Library).

        Memoria istorica sopra l'avvenuto in Roma in occasione della Bolla Pretiosus Ben. XIII. [Rom, um 1727.]

      1727. Eigenh. Manuskript. 4 SS. 275:203 mm. Lose in Pappmappe. Folio. Vom Verfasser unterdrückt ("dentro le mani") und ausschließlich für die Nachwelt verfaßt, bringt dieses anscheinend unveröffentlichte Manuskript eine erbitterte Aufzählung der Reaktionen innerhalb der Kirche auf die umstrittenste Bulle Benedikt XIII., die "Bulla Pretiosus". Benedikt (1724-30), selbst Dominikaner, erlaubte damit den Dominikanern, die Augustinische Gnadendoktrin zu predigen. Besonders interessant ist das Manuskript deswegen, weil es offensichtlich auf Informationen fußt, die v. Kardinal Giambattista Salerni (1670-1729) herrühren, einem Favoriten Benedikts, der den polnischen König August zum Katholizismus bekehrt hatte. Zur Zeit der Abfassung des Manuskripts war der Jesuit Turani (auch Turano), päpstlicher Visitator in Sizilien u. Verfasser zahlreicher Abhandlungen (vgl. de Backer/S. VIII, 2709ff. u. L. Cardella, Memorie storiche de' cardinali VII, 190f.). - Aus der Sammlung Sir Thomas Phillipps (ex Ms. 7532).

Illustrated throughout, with over one hundred beautifully engraved vignettes as headers for each fable. Illustrations are engraved by theAntwerp engraverHenrik Cause and are modelled after drawings by Francois Chauveau. de La Fontaine's Fables are known universally as they showcase his versatility and fecundity as an author.

His fables earned royal patronage and display deep insights into human nature. Lacking parts I and II of this five part series. So three out of the five parts present. Jean de La Fontaine was the most famous French fabulist and one of the most widely read French poets of the 17th century. His Fables provided a model for the subsequent fabulists.

        Lettere di un Confessore scritte ad una sua Penitente sopra vari soggetti riguardanti la direzione del suo spirito. Assieme di 49 missive inviate da Liborio Venerosi a Maria Anna Strozzi Cellesi. Manoscritte su carta. Pistoia 1727-1744

      1727. in-4 (mm 225x165), titolo e 197 pagine, legatura coeva in pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Interessante raccolta di 49 missive, di cui al verso si conservano indirizzo e sigilli, inviate da Venerosi a Maria Anna Strozzi Cellesi. Il Venerosi, cui il Forteguerri dedicò il ''Ricciardetto'', signore dei conti di Strido e proposito dei rev. Sacerdoti di San Filippo Neri di Pistoia, fu persona assai dotta. Il Carteggio, che copre il periodo dal 25 ottobre 1727 al 30 ottobre 1744, tratta dell'analisi dell'anima e la sua direzione spirituale. Di Maria Anna Strozzi Cellesi è noto anche un altro carteggio conservato all'Archivio Stato di Firenze, inviato al fratello dal 1740 al 1744 ed incentrato essenzialmente sulle questioni inerenti l'amministrazione del patrimonio e la tutela dei figli venutesi a creare in conseguenza della improvvisa morte del marito, Sebastiano Cellesi, avvenuta nel gennaio 1740. Interessante documentazione.

        Voyages en Europe, Asie & Afrique. Den Haag, Johnson & van Duren, 1727.

      1727. Folio (200 x 315 mm). 2 vols. (14), 472, 23 pp. (6), 496, 39 pp. With 2 engr. frontispieces, 2 engr. title vignettes, 47 engr. plates (some folding) after Hogarth, Picard and others, and 4 folding engr. maps. Modern half calf. First edition in French. "This important work describes La Mottraye's travels over a 26-year period which took him through Northern Europe to Tartary and the Levant. The plates are of particular interest and include many signed by Hogarth which form part of his early work. They illustrate antiquities, objets d'art, and scenes of the eastern life. Especially interesting is a plate showing a dance at a Greek wedding, with each member of the party dressed in a different costume" (Blackmer). Chapter XII of vol. 1 discusses the Quran, and the Appendix contains extracts from a manuscript on the Muslim faith as well as a section on the Islamic calendar. "Aubry de la Mottraye, a Huguenot, travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Africa during the years 1696 to 1729, beginning in Scandinavia, where he became a confidant of Charles XII. He then went on to Tartary and the Levant. The work contains several notable costume plates, particularly relating to the Levant, some of which may have been inspired by Ferriol and Le Hay's 'Recueil de cent estamped représentant différentes nations du Levant' (1714)" (Atabey). - Occasional edge defects, repaired. Slight brownstaining. Formerly in the Ottoman collection of the Swiss industrialist Herry W. Schaefer. Blackmer 946. Weber II, 443. Röhricht (Palästina), p. 287. Tobler 116. Chatzipanagioti-S. 504.

        De aanmerkenswaardigste en alomberoemde zee- en landreizen der Portugeezen, Spanjaarden, Engelsen en allerhande natiën: zoo van Fransen, Italiaanen, Deenen, Hoogh- en Nederduitsen als van veele andere volkeren. Voornaamenlyk ondernomen tot ontdekking van de Oost- en Westindiën, midsgaders andere verafgelegene gewesten des aardryks. The Hague and Leiden, widow of Engelbrecht Boucquet and sons, Jan van der Deyster, and Boudewijn and Pieter van der Aa, 1727.

      1727. 8 vols. 1mo and folio. With 7 (of 8) engraved frontispieces (lacking that of volume 4), 4 engraved dedications, 117 engraved maps on 61 leaves, 7 engraved plates and 502 engravings in text. Further with 127 (of 128) title-pages (including a general title-page, a title-page to 7 (of 8) volumes, lacking that of volume 4, and 118 for the separate works). Volume 1-3 & 5-8: contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine and board edges; volume 4: modern calf. Large paper copy of the so-called "folio-edition" (although here mostly printed as 1mo) of Van der Aa's voluminous collection of important voyages to the East and West Indies and other countries, undertaken by all European countries, other than the Dutch. Including voyages by Acosta, Balbi, Cabot, Cavendish, Chester, Columbus, Cortes, Coutinho, Da Cunha, Drake, Evesko, Frobisher, Gallonye, Da Gama, Garay, Garcia, Gilbert, Jenkinson, Harcourt, Herberer, Magallanes, Mildenhal and Cartwright, Mouette, Petelin and Andrasko, Raleigh, Saris, De Soto, etc. - The work is falsely attributed on the title-page to Johan Lodewijk Gottfried, by Van der Aa, most likely because he made good money publishing Gottfried's "Chronicle" in 1702. In reality Gottfried had nothing to do with the present work. The work was edited and co-published by Pieter van der Aa, known for his ambitious projects. Where other publishers were primarily concerned about the profits, Van der Aa wanted to publish outstanding books. For the present series of travels he either reused and revised older Dutch translations or had the original accounts translated for the first time into Dutch. In 1706 he already started publishing the translated voyages both in small (8vo) and large instalments (folio or 1mo), and a year later he published a 28-volume set of the 8vo editions. The folio editions were afterwards issued and divided in four large collections of two volumes each. The present issue, is a reissue of these four collections with their own independent tile-pages and frontispieces, and ads a new general title-page and list of subscribers. - While all sets seem to be described as "folio" the present set is printed mainly as 1mo, with some occasional quires in folio. And as the large editions of the two volume sets were available on normal paper (80 guilders) and on large paper (100 guilders; Hoftijzer, p. 43), it seems very likely the present set is one printed on large paper. All leaves are unwatermarked and the 1mo leaves are only slightly trimmed (measuring 396 x 238 mm with the tranchefiles often still visible) the folio leaves are trimmed more and don't have visible tranchefiles. The fourth volume is from a different set which is trimmed down much more, but also combines both 1mo and folio leaves. - Some occasional spots, a couple minor restorations and a few wormholes; a very good set, but with the fourth volume from a different and heavily trimmed set (though printed on the same large paper), in a modern binding and lacking the frontispiece and the title-page to the volume. The seven volumes with contemporary bindings slightly worn along the extremities and with some minor wear on the sides, but otherwise very good. Cordier (Sinica) 1942f. Muller, America 1889. Sabin 3 (note). Tiele, Bibl. 10. For Van der Aa: P.G. Hoftijzer, Pieter van der Aa (1659-1733), Leids drukker en boekverkoper (1999).

         [BAGNOLET] Plan général du chasteau de Bagnolet et de ses jardins, appartenant à S.A.R. Madame la duchesse d'Orléans, du dessein de Mr. Desgotz, architecte du roi et controlleur de ses bâtimens.

      Paris, Mariette, 1727. 418 x 551 mm. Très rare plan figurant les jardins du château de Bagnolet, dessiné par Claude Desgots, architecte paysagiste du roi. Il est accompagné d'une table de 83 renvois. Construit au XVIIe siècle, le château de Bagnolet fut vendu en 1719 au duc d'Orléans. La duchesse d'Orléans, qui en avait fait sa résidence favorite, fit ajouter deux ailes au bâtiment et redessiner le parc par Claude Desgots, petit-neveu d'André Le Nôtre. Pour pouvoir y aller de Paris, sans passer par la populaire rue de Bagnolet, elle fit ouvrir, vers 1720, une avenue plantée d'ormes (légende n°1 sur le plan), dite "avenue de Madame", correspondant de nos jours à la rue des Orteaux. Collaborateur privilégié de Le Nôtre, Claude Desgots participa aux travaux de Chantilly, des Tuileries, de Saint-Cloud, de Sceaux et de Trianon. En 1692, Le Nôtre lui transmit la moitié de sa charge de dessinateur des plants et parterres, et fit de lui son héritier désigné en lui cédant, en 1698, son office de contrôleur général des bâtiments et manufactures du roi. Desgots travailla par la suite pour les jardins du Palais-Royal, de Saint-Maur, de Champs-sur-Marne et du château de Perrigny en Bourgogne, ainsi que dans plusieurs jardins européens, en Angleterre notamment, pour les parterres du château de Windsor. Rousseurs marginales.

        Allegoria dell'Eloquenza

      1727. "Chiaroscuro a due legni, stampato in sanguigna da due blocchi, su linee all'acquaforte impresse in nero. Nitida impressione su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Come esplicitamente indicato nella didascalia sotto il titolo, la tavola è stata incisa a chairoscuro da Vincent Lesueur e, per le linee all'acquaforte, da Charles Nicolas Cochin père. Il soggetto si basa su un disegno ritenuto a lungo di Raffaello, e oggi attribuito alla sua scuola. Il disegno è conservato presso l'Ashmolean Museum (WA 1846.212). L'opera fu certamente incisa prima del 1727 perché si conserva un esemplare successivo, con l'indirizzo di Mariette, che reca la data 1727. La tavola appartiene alla serie ""Recueil d'estampes d'après les plus beaux tableaux et d'après les plus beaux desseins qui sont en France"". Anche nota come ""Recueil Crozat"", la serie è ccomposta da due volumi di tavole commissionare dal collezionista francese Pierre Crozat e rirpoducenti famosi dipinti e disegni della sua epoca. Il primo volume, di 140 tavole, fu pubblicato nel 1729; il secondo - di 42 tavole (invece che le 110 iniziali) - fu pubblicato nel 1740. Dopo la morte di Crozat, i rami furono venduti ad alcuni librai che incaricarono Mariette di riorganizzare la raccolta. Mariette organizzò le tavole in due volumi, aggiungendo alcune descrizioni mancanti, e pubblicando l'opera nel 1742. Nel 1764 Basan ripubblicò la raccolta ma incidendo le tavole con la tecnica xilografica." "Chiaroscuro woodcut, printed in sanguine from two blocks, on etched lines printed in black. Engraved by Vincent Lesueur (woodcut) and Charles Nicolas Cochin père (etching) after a drawing formerly attributed to Raphael, now to his school, in the Ashmolean Museum (WA 1846.212). The plate was engraved before 1727: an impression now in the Cabinet des Estampes bears Mariette's signature, along with the date '1727'. The plate is from the series ""Recueil d'estampes d'après les plus beaux tableaux et d'après les plus beaux desseins qui sont en France"". Also known as 'Recueil Crozat', is a series of plates commissioned by the collector Pierre Crozat and reproducing famous paintings and drawings of the era; 140 plates were published in 1729. A second volume formed by 42 prints (instead of the 110 plates initially planned) was issued in 1740. After Crozat's death, the plates were sold to a company of booksellers who commissioned Mariette to reorganize the 'Recueil'; Mariette divided the plates into two volumes, added some missing descriptions, and advertised the set to the public in 1742. In 1764, Basan bought the plates and the text, and republished the 'Recueil', but replaced the woodcuts by intaglio prints. Basan also published the 45 plates reproducing the Italian paintings from the collection of the Duc d'Orléans in a volume entitled 'Recueil d'après la gallerie du palais royal'" Inventaire du Fonds Français 50. 251 280

A bill of fare at a former coronation-feast. With many other notable particulars, . . . The whole adorn’d with curious cuts, . . .

      Printed for J. Roberts, in Warwick-Lane; J. Stagg, in Westminster Hall; and D. Browne, without Temple-Bar, London 1727 - 4to: 80pp, with large folding copper-engraved frontispiece, "Procession of Kings and Queens with over 150 robed figures," measuring a full 44 cm x 35 cm, a second folding engraving, "The Manner of the Champions, performing the Ceremony of ye Challenge," and 12 woodcuts in the text depicting various ceremonial objects, including crowns, maces, scepters, and coronation rings. Bound in early (possibly contemporary) quarter sheep with marbled boards, rubbed along spine and corners; red morocco lettering piece, chipped but clearly legible; all edges marbled. Bookplate of Buddle Atkinson to front paste down. A sturdy, unsophisticated copy, frontispiece slightly foxed along folds, sporadic light soiling and browning, otherwise clean and bright. ESTC Citation No. T116211. Lowndes 526. Bindley pt. vi, 1039. Fourth Edition (reissue, with altered title page, of sheets from third edition). Full of fascinating information relating to the etiquette and procedure of royal ceremonies. Buddle Atkinson's bookplate appears in Hugo's Catalogue of Thomas Bewick's works, but it is, in fact, engraved on steel, not wood, and came from the workshop of Mark Lambert, one of Bewick's pupils. The plate was designed and engraved by George F. Robinson, who joined Lambert's workshop in 1841 and who, in the course of 50 years, became chief engraver and director of all art works carried out by the firm. The plate was produced when Atkinson (b.1841) was a young child, perhaps for putting in books that had been owned by his father, John Buddle, so it likely dates from 1845-1850. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
