        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.

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'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.

Modern grey and brown decorative paper over boards with a modern printed black-on-grey label on the front cover reproducing part of the title page as a smaller scale, within a double-ruled border. Text is in 130 numbered columns.

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. Back cover of modern binding slightly soiled; otherwise in Fine Condition. Very scarce.

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.

Vol3 Examen poeticism (1693) Dryden, Mulgrave,Selden,Bathurst, Yalden, J.H., Howard, Talbot, Wolsey,Congreve,Waller, Sprat, Clifford, Vaughn, Allestry, Chomondely, J.R., Garth, Higgons, Cromwell, Glanvill Rochester, Eaton, 'A LADY" Pope, Sacherville, Dorset, Hopkins, Montague, Aylosse, D'Avenant, Tate, Donne (The Will) Mrs Behn. Vol4 Annual Miscellany (1694 by the " most eminent hands ") Poems and translations by Dryden , Addison,Congreve, Townsend,Hopkins, Yalden, Buckingham, Purcell, Dennis, Glanvil, Knapp, 12 Poems by John Donne including "The Valediction forbidding mourning" Rochester many "Anon songs" Waller Goodolphin, Two versions of the anon poem Imperfect enjoyment, John Eccles, Carryl, Drayton,Walch. 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.

        POEMS ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS

      1727. Fine. BROOME, William. POEMS ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS. London: Bernard Lintot, 1727. Octavo. xiii(3)248pp. First edition. Fine frontispiece portrait engraved by George Vertue. Three pages of publisher's ads. Broome, a country clergyman, contributed the notes to Pope's Iliad (1715-20), and wrote eight of the 24 Books of "Pope's" translation of the Odyssey, published in 1725-6, as well as the Notes. He felt he received insufficient credit or payment for his work, and Samuel Johnson (in Lives of the Poets) said there was "more than coldness" between him and Pope. Facing the first page of text here is Broome's rather caustic "Advertisement:" "The Author has not inserted into this Collection any part of his translation of the Odyssey, published by Mr. Pope: he thought it an Imposition on the Public to swell this volume with Verses taken from a Work that is in the hands of almost every Reader." Johnson quoted a comic verse current at the time: "Pope came off clean with Homer, but they say/ Broome went before and kindly swept the way." Pope lampooned Broome in The Dunciad and Bathos. Johnson called Broome an "excellent versifyer, his lines smooth and sonorous, his diction select and elegant," but admitted that he was not a great poet. Tipped-in on the flyleaf is a description of another copy of this edition from a Sotheby's catalogue of 1870, copied out in longhand. Contemporary calf boards, skillfully rebacked with black morocco spine labels. Scarce

        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).

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'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.

Complete sets of Leupold's Theatrum are virtually never found and Ferguson stated in his bibliography of technology that he had never seen a complete set. Each volume is complete in itself. The eighth volume is of particular interest in the history of computers as it mainly deals with calculating machines. This volume contains detailed descriptions of the calculating machines of Schott (1668), Grillet (1673), Leibniz (1674), Poleni (1709), and Leupold himself. The tenth volume is a supplement to the series published after Leupold's death by Ernst Scheffler. It deals with odometers, gyrometers, step counters and other devices for the measurement of distances. However this volume is important because it contains the 90 page general index to the entire series.

        THE WORKS OF GEOFFREY CHAUCER. Compared with the Former Editions and many Valuable MSS, out of which, Three Tales are added which were never before printed; By John Urry, student of Christ-Church,Oxon...

      Together with a Glossary by a Student of the same College. To the Whole is prefixed The Author's Life, newly written. Illustrated with a fine engraved frontispiece portrait of Chaucer (by Vertue), letterpress title incorporating an engraving of Chaucer's tomb, with a full-page engraved portrait of Urry following title page. Engraved illustration of the pilgrims leaving the Tabard Inn on the first text leaf and a half-page engraved illustration of each of the pilgrims at the commencement of each tale. [vi], [50], 626, 82pp very tall large folio, full early calf (probably contemporary) on heavy boards professionally and sympathetically rebacked with raised bands and red leather morocco label gilt, an attractive copy, London, Lintot, 1727. PHOTOGRAPHS CAN BE SENT ON REQUEST. *The Works of Chaucer were first printed in 1532, followed by editions in 1542, 1561 (Stowe), and 1598 (Speght). Urry's important luxurious 1727 edition was the next to be published and kept Chaucer's name alive for the 18thC and into the 19thC. It was the first to be printed in Roman, not Gothic type. In it appeared for the first time, The Tale of Gamelyn, The Pardoner and the Tapster, an account of what happened after the pilgrims had reached Canterbury, and The Second Merchant's Tale, or Tale of Beryn. Although interesting in themselves, none of these "Tales" are in fact by Chaucer. Urry was a friend of the antiquarian, Thomas Hearne, and was one of a number of scholars in the early eighteenth century who undertook research into Anglo-Saxon, and early English. This edition includes an extensive "Glossary explaining the obsolete and difficult words in Chaucer." The work was left unfinished at Urry's death, and the final revision and completion were entrusted to Timothy Thomas, who wrote the preface and glossary. The life of Chaucer was originally written by John Dart, but was revised and altered by William Thomas. A spectacular edition of Chaucer.

Experience Mayhew was the fourth generation of Mayhews who preached to the Indians of MarthaÕs Vineyard, his great-grandfather being Thomas Mayhew, to whom Sir Ferdinando Gorges granted the patent in 1641, along with Nantucket and the Elizabeth Islands. At the time of writing there were upwards of three thousand Òpraying IndiansÓ on the Vineyard and Nantucket. Field's comments on this work are interesting enough that we quote, in-full, his remarks: "In this extraordinary relation of the effects of the Gospel upon the aborigines, are narrated biographical sketches of one hundred and twenty-nine Indians, who gave unexceptional tokens of conversion by Christian lives. The humane labors of this noble missionary contrast so strikingly with the bloody massacre of the Cheyennes in 1863, by the forces under the Rev. Colonel Chivington at Sand Creek, that we cannot but wonder if their religion was the same. We are reminded, however, that Mr. MayhewÕs own sect instigated wars between the tribes of New England, in order to weaken their forces, slaughtered the entire adult members of some tribes, and sold their children into slavery in the West Indies." Key title documenting the early history of religious interaction between the Native Americans & the English ministry. Uncommon in the trade, last coming to auction in 1999, when then it fetched $3000.
