      London: Printed for J. Roberts, in Warwick-Lane; J. Stagg, in Westminster Hall; and D. Browne, without Temple-Bar. 1727. [Price 2s 6d], 1727. Quarter-bound Leather. Very Good+. Fourth Edition (a reissue, with altered title page, of sheets from the third edition). 4to; 80pp, with a magnificent 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," measuring 17 cm x 19 cm; 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 the spine and corners, the red morocco lettering piece chipped but clearly legible; all edges marbled. Provenance: bookplate of Buddle Atkinson to the front paste down. A sturdy, unsophisticated copy with boards firmly attached; frontispiece plate slightly foxed along the folds with several short edge tears, but otherwise clean and bright in a fine impression; sporadic light soiling and browning throughout. Full of fascinating information relating to the etiquette and procedure of royal ceremonies. ESTC Citation No. T116211. Rare. 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.

        De Legibus Hebraeorum Ritualibus et Earum Rationibus, Libri Quatuor

      Canterbury - C. Crownfield, E. Jeffrey and W. Thurlbourn, 1727 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A two volume revised edition of De Legibus Hebraeorum by John Spencer, edited by Leonard Chappelow. A good wide margined clean copy needing a little remedial work now to the original high quality binding. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and blindstamped decoration. Two volumes, complete. John Spencer, 1630 1693 , was an English clergyman and scholar, Master of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. An erudite theologian and Hebraist, he is now remembered as the author of De Legibus Hebraeorum, a pioneer work of comparative religion, advancing the controversial thesis that Judaism was not the earliest of mankinds religions. He was educated at the Kings School, Canterbury, and Corpus Christi, Cambridge. He graduated B. A. in 1648, M. A. in 1652, B. D. in 1659, and D. D. in 1665. He was chosen a fellow of his college about 1655. After taking holy orders he became a university preacher. In 1667 he was unanimously elected master of Corpus Christi College, a post he held for twenty-six years. He was admitted, on the presentation of the king, to the archdeaconry of Sudbury in the church of Norwich in 1677; and was instituted to the deanery of Ely in 1677. Benefaction and writing characterized the last decade of Spencer's life. In 16835 he issued at Cambridge the first edition of his great work De legibus Hebraeorum ritualibus et earum rationibus, comprising three books on the ritual laws of the Hebrews, and the reasons for them. In this work Spencer derived nearly all his data from classical writers of Greece and Rome, from the Christian Fathers, the works of Josephus, or from the Bible itself. (DNB)Leonard Chappelow, 1683 1768, was an English clergyman and orientalist. He was Sir Thomas Adams's Professor of Arabic at the University of Cambridge, from 1720, for life, and also Lord Almoner's Professorship of Arabic. Chappelow matriculated as a sizar at St John's College, Cambridge in 1709. After graduating M. A. in 1716, he was a Fellow from 1717 to 1731. Chappelow was ordained in 1716. His first publication, in 1727, was a new edition of John Spencer's De legibus Hebraeorum ritualibus, which he annotated and supplied with an index. (DNB)Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The boards are held by the cords only, and could possibly detach during transit, even after careful packaging. There is wear to the extremities including bumping and rubbing, with slight loss to the leather. Internally the pages have very slight browning to the page edges, with the occasional spot, most prominent to the first and last few pages. Thereare nameplatesand institutional ink stampson the front pastedowns, and ink inscriptions on the front pastedown of volume 1. There is an ink signature on the title page of volume 1 and the half title of volume 2. Overall the condition is very good..

        Consiliorum medicorum liber unicus. Ex Bibliotheca Jo. Jacobi Strasskirchneri.

      Frankfurt und Leipzig, C. C. Immig, 1727. - Gestochene Titelvignette, 3 gefaltete Tabellen, (3 Bl.), 466 (recte 464) S., (5 Bl.) 4°. Pergamentband der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel Laehr, Die Literatur der Psychiatrie, Neurologie und Psychologie II, 217-219; Blake 68; vgl. Hirsch/H. I, 738 (zum Verfasser); nicht bei Kreuter, Wellcome, Waller und Osler. - Außerordentlich seltenes Werk, von dem wir einzeln seit 1950 nur ein Exemplar im Handel nachweisen konnten. Das bereits 1617 posthum erschienene Werk wurde offenbar nur in kleinster Auflage publiziert und ist wegen seiner umfangreichen Kapitel über Melancholie und Epilepsie interessant. Nicht in den großen Medizinsammlungen und mit Ausnahme von Laehr auch der Fachgeschichtsschreibung weitgehend unbekannt, daher konnten wir zur Rezeptionsgeschichte nichts weiteres ermitteln. Das Todesjahr des Verfassers gibt Dunckel - abweichend von Hirsch/H. und Jöcher - in Band I seiner "Historisch-kritischen Nachrichten von verstorbenen Gelehrten" mit 1610 statt 1604 an. - Brunner, 1540 in Halle geboren, studierte in Erfurt, war kurze Zeit Professor in Leipzig, unternahm dann längere Reisen durch Spanien, Frankreich, England, Belgien und die Schweiz, war Famulus bei Crato von Krafftheim (dessen Gesamtausgabe wir anbieten), dann angesehener Arzt in seiner Heimat, zuletzt Leibarzt der Anhaltinischen Fürsten. Schmieder in seiner Geschichte der Alchemie (S. 320/321) und Jöcher im Allgemeinen Gelehrten-Lexicon I, 1426 heben das Interesse des Verfassers an der Alchemie hervor, der den Stein der Weisen gesucht habe, 20 Jahre chemische Versuche dazu in seinem Laboratorium in Halle unternahm und 16000 Gulden dafür aufgewendet hatte. "Unter dem lateinischen Namen und mit einem fingierten Vornamen, wurden nach seinem Tode einige Aufsätze von ihm gedruckt, unter dem Titel: Johannis de Fontina, Vier nützliche chymische Tractat, Halle 1612" (Schmieder). - Ungewöhnlich schönes, nahezu fleckfreies Exemplar.

The author, Michael Heberer (1560-1623/33?), has been called der pfälzishe Robinson, or Robinson Crusoe of the Palatinate, because of his unlucky sea voyages recounted here. The engraved map shows Heberer's route around the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea. The other engravings depict a ship wreck, prisoners of the moors, the freeing of some prisoners in Alexandria, and the execution of others.

        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&#39;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. &#10087; Folter 528.

        Recentissima Novi Orbis Sive Americae Septentrionalis et Meriodionalis Tabula

      Amsterdam: R. & I. Ottens, [circa 1727]. Copper-engraved map, full period hand-colouring. 21 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches. A lovely copy of a scarce issue of this map of North and South America, here with beautiful period hand colouring. Burden lists the present map under Danckerts, who had re- engraved a close copy of De Wit&#39;s circa 1675 map of North and South America. Danckert&#39;s re-engraved version removes De Wit&#39;s dedication cartouche in the upper left, allowing for a more visible and detailed mapping of Terra Esonis and a portion of Japan. In the South Pacific, New Guinea and the Solomon Islands have been added. The present copy is an example of Burden&#39;s third state, with nomenclature on Terra Esonis and with Otten&#39;s imprint added. Interestingly, besides adding his own imprint, Ottens has removed Danckerts name and replaced it with De Wit. Burden cites a Covens and Mortier catalogue criticizing the Ottens for falsely crediting De Wit in an attempt to better market the map (De Wit apparently being more respected than Danckerts). In sum, this map is by the Ottens brothers falsely crediting De Wit to mask the fact that the map was a reprinting of a map by Danckerts, who had in turn appropriated De Wit by re-engraving his map!

        Lago di Sabaudia e Monte Circeo

      Mappa manoscritta, circa 1727/30, finemente realizzata a penna, inchiostro bruno e acquarello su carta. Pieghe e piccoli strappi, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione.La carta è orientata con l?Ovest in alto e descrive il Lago di Paola o di Sabaudia, denominato ?lago di Santa Maria? e alla sinistra il Monte Circeo e la città di San Felice. Molto accurata la legenda in basso che elenca 27 luoghi, siti e strade. Sebbene per certi elementi stilistici ricordi un manoscritto di fine XVII secolo, questa mappa è databile intorno al 1730. Nella legenda infatti viene citata la strada costruita per il passaggio di papa Benedetto XIII, vescovo di Roma e Papa della Chiesa cattolica dal 1724 al 1730. Dopo la sua elevazione al soglio pontificio Benedetto XIII, visitò per due volte la sua città natale, Benevento. Nel 1727 segui questo itinerario: Albano, Porto d?Anzio, Torre Paola Circeo, Terracina, Fondi e quindi Benevento. Il 2 maggio 1727 celebrò messa a Terracina nella chiesa del SS. Salvatore. Durante il suo secondo viaggio di ritorno da Benevento, si fermò a Terracina, il 30 maggio 1729, e mentre proseguiva verso Roma, a Torre Paola rischiò di essere catturato da pirati barbareschi, informati dell?itinerario del Pontefice.

The author, Michael Heberer (1560-1623/33?), has been called der pfälzishe Robinson, or Robinson Crusoe of the Palatinate, because of his unlucky sea voyages recounted here.

VI) A6, B-P12,Q6 Fifth edition of the classic miscellany, originally issued in 1684-1709 and now advertised by Tonson as published by Dryden, but as Macdonald points out he was not much more than an occasional adviser and took no overall responsibility for the work. Nevertheless, the early volumes include a considerable amount of his own work, as well of course as poetry by all the major poets writing in English at this time. VOL 1 Miscellany Poems (1684), includes works by Dryden Mulgrave, Scrope, Roscomon, Creech, Duke, Adams, Short, Bowles, Chetwood, Stepney, Denham, Lee, Prior, Milton, Mrs WHARTON, Suckling, Marvell, Waller, Sprat, Rymer, Buckingham, Cotton, Higgins, Glanvill, Cartright, MRS BEHN.

Vol5 Poetical Miscellanies (1704) :This volume was edited by Nicholas Rowe, before he Married Elizabeth Singer. This volume of Miscellanies contains work by Dryden, Addison, Roscommon, Elizabeth Singer Rowe, George Granville Lansdowne, Charles Hopkins, N. Tate, Buckhurst, Congreve, Buckingham, and Cowley. Being at Bath in the year 1709, Mr. Rowe was introduced by a gentleman of her acquaintance, into Mrs. Singer's company, who lived in a retirement not far distant from that city. The idea he conceived of her from report, and from her writings, charmed him; but when he had seen and conversed with her, he felt another kind of impression from the presence of so much beauty, wit, and virtue; and the esteem of the Theorist was converted into the rapture of a Lover. During the courtship, he writ a poetical epistle to a friend that was a neighbour of Mrs. Singer, and intimate in the family. I shall take the liberty [Page 19]? to quote a few lines out of it, not so much for a specimen of Mr. Rowe's poetical genius (tho' that appears in them too) as his passionate veneration for Mrs. Singer. Youth's liveliest bloom, a never fading grace, And more than beauty sparkles in her face; Yet the bright form creates no loose desires, At once she gives, and purifies our fires, And passions chaste as her own soul inspires; Her soul, heaven's noblest workmanship, design'd To bless the ruin'd age, and succour lost mankind; To prop abandon'd virtue's sinking cause, And snatch from vice its undeserv'd applause. Mrs. Elizabeth Singer was married to Mr. Thomas Rowe in the year 1710, on which occasion a learned friend of Mr. Rowe's wrote the following beautiful Latin epigram. In nuptias Thom Rowe & Elizabethë Singer. Quid doctum par usque tuum, sociosque labores ??Fabrë & Dacerii, Gallia vana crepas? Par majus gens Angla dedit, juvenem atque puellam, ??Quos hodie sacro foedere junxit amor. Namque ea quae nostri Phoebo cecinere docente, ??Explicuisse tuis gloria summa soret. Thus translated by a young gentleman: On the marriage of Mr. THOMAS ROWE and Mrs. ELIZABETH SINGER. No more, proud Gallia, bid the world revere Thy learned pair, Le Fevre and Dacier; Britain may boast this happy day unites Two nobler minds in Hymen's sacred rites: What these had sung, while all th'inspiring Nine Exalt the beauties of the verse divine. Vol 6 Poetical Miscellanies (1709) includes works by Mr Phillips, Pope, Wicherly,Waller, Earo of Mulgrave, Garth, Hughes, Gentelman of Cambridgr, Tickell,Trapp, William Worts, Rowe, Burlington, Davenant, The Ballad of RobinHood, Corbet, Mennis, Pelham, Harrison. and many Anonymous poems and songs. The solid position of John Dryden in the history of English literature as "the major literary figure of his time" is evident in almost all of his many works. As Stapleton states " Dryden was one of the most skillful and accomplished artists in English Letters, a professional in the modern sense of the word" Perhaps Dryden's contribution to Restoration Comedy is greatest. His efforts as a playwright met with outstanding success, and he wrote more than a dozen comedies (most of which were published/printed by Herringman). Marriage A-la-Mode is a 'serious" romance, with a humorous fore-plot if anti-romance, J. Sutherland writes" He writes here (Marriage.A-la-Mode) not only with more comic assurance than ever before, but with one of the most thoughtful treatments of sex and marriage that Restoration comedy can show. With its witty repartee, its engaging impudence, its critical precision of phrase, and the comic force of its situations, this is a comedy without any admixture of farce, and it contains what many would call his finest comic character,the affected and foolish Melantha. On the reverse of the prologue, is a list of "persons Represented" which tells us "Melantha , an affected Lady," was played by Mrs. Bowtell.

        COPIA DE UNAS INFORMACIONES, FEES DE BAPTISMO, Y CASAMIENTOS, Y OTROS INSTRUMENTOS QUE SE PRESENTARON POR DOÑA MARIA DE VIVERO MONTEZUMA Y DON NICOLAS DE VIVERO Y PEREDO EN EL PLEITO DE TENUTA SOBRE EL ESTADO DE FUENSALDAÑA Y SAN JUAN SACADA

      [Valladolid. May 14, 1727].. 339 leaves of manuscript. Ornate titlepage. Folio. Contemporary plain wrappers. Minor edge wear and curling at corners. Internally clean. Near fine, untrimmed. In a half morocco and cloth box. An exhaustive transcript of baptismal and marriage records presented by Doña Maria de Vivero in support of her claim to the Montezuma estates of Fuensaldaña and San Juan. The many lawsuits perpetuated by the several heirs persisted over hundreds of years and lasted into the 19th century. The documents present here include an overwhelming amount of genealogical evidence, presumably gathered to prove the legitimacy of Vivero's claim on the estates, as well as other data relevant to the famous lawsuits. The persistence of Vivero and the other heirs is a testament to the value of the land in contest. Such disputes were not limited to the Montezuma estates. In the early years after Cortés' conquest, nascent Mexican agriculture developed on an ad hoc basis. Land grants were common, but the most frequent method of expanding one's property was to simply seize adjacent acreage. Naturally, this behavior gave rise to numerous lawsuits, and the problem never reached a satisfactory decision until large haciendas emerged and consolidated available resources and power. A fine resource for Mexican legal history, reaching back to the earliest Spanish colonization. MAGGS BIBLIOTHECA AMERICANA 2049a, 5313 (this manuscript).

        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

      London: Printed in the Year 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. First edition, Teerink&#39;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 &#39;A&#39; edition appeared on 28 October 1726, the &#39;AA" edition in mid-November, and this &#39;B&#39; edition, which was set up from the AA edition, was published in December. This, Swift&#39;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&#39;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.
