        A Miscellany of Poems By Several Hands. Publish'ed by J[ohn] Husbands

      Printed by Leon. Lichfield. First edition.. Some foxing, particularly to the title-page and prelims; front free endpaper chipped at the fore-edge; very good copy.. Fleeman 31.10HM/1; Courtney 1; Chapman & Hazen, page 123. 8vo, 18th century sprinkled calf skillfully rebacked, later marbled endpapers, red morocco label, gilt rules and lettering. A miscellany of 61 poems (all but 15 of them by the editor John Husbands) which contains the first published work of Samuel Johnson, a translation into Latin verse of Pope's Messiah, done as an exercise in November 1728 for his Pembroke College tutor, William Jorden. Johnson's seven-page translation in 119 lines was executed with his usual scholarly enthusiasm and impressive (and later legendary) ability to work fast. He completed the task in little over a day. (See Jackson Bate, Samuel Johnson, pages 91-93). It has been claimed that there was a separate printing of Johnson's Messiah prior to this publication. A copy has never been found, though Husbands's Miscellany is still sometimes qualified as being the first "surviving" publication of any of Johnson's works. John Husbands (1706-1732) was also a young scholar at Pembroke College Oxford, but few facts are known about this life, and his claim to fame is as Johnson's first editor. At an early juncture in the 100-page preface, Husbands notes Johnson's contribution: "The translation of Mr. Pope's Messiah was delivered to his tutor, as a college exercise, by Mr. Johnson, a commoner of Pembroke College in Oxford, and 'tis hoped will be no discredit to the excellent original.? In the remaining preface Husbands writes about poetry in general and its models and types. For an interesting article on Husbands's Miscellany, see An Early Eighteenth-Century Enthusiast for Primitive Poetry, Modern Language Notes, January, 1922. Bookplates of Frank Brewer Bemis and Frederick Whiley Hilles on the front paste-down; small Yale University ink stamp on the verso of the title page; deaccessioned by Yale and sold by C. A. Stonehill of New Haven to collector Paula Peyraud in November, 1985. See Peyraud Sale lot 310. The rear paste-down noted in the catalogue as having a crudely removed bookplate has been replaced with a similar marbled paper.

Contemporary French mottled calf, spines richly gold-tooled, marbled endpapers and edges.

      Ferguson, Bib. Chem., I, pp. 83-84; Schelenz, Gesch. der Pharmazie, p. 563; Sotheran 6050; Wellcome, p. 118; DSB I, p. 527. Mathew Boulton's fine copy of the first and best edition of a thorough handbook of practical chemistry by one of France's most distinguished 18th-century chemists, pharmacists and equipment makers, with 12 plates showing a wide variety of furnaces, boilers, distilling equipment and other glassware, crucibles, etc. Baumé (1728-1804) worked for decades as a pharmacist and designed and produced laboratory apparatus. The present book, his most important publication, grew out of a series of courses he taught in the years 1757 to 1772. At the end of the latter year he was elected to the Académie des Sciences. Distillation (including the distillation of wine) was one of his specialties. A fine copy, with the two-leaf cancel (volume I, pages 71-74), and with only a minor tear in the text of 1 leaf and an occasional minor spot. Bindings with minor damage to the spines, but still very good. With the eighteenth-century letterpress bookplates of Mathew Boulton. A fine copy of a classic chemistry manual, especially interesting as a source for Watt and Boulton's steam engine.

        A Night Dance by Men in Hapaee

      - This outstandingly detailed copper-plate engraving depicting a scene in Captain Cooks Journey. Overall this print measures 21.5" x 16". Captain James Cook (1728-1779) was a British navigator, explorer and cartographer with the Royal Navy. In 1766, Cook began what would be three separate voyages to the Pacific, studying, charting and documenting the Pacific and island inhabitants. The engravings and images produced from these great eighteenth-century voyages presented the world with scientific and ethnographic data, pictorial representations, and cartographic discoveries of the pacific from its northern reaches to its southern extremities for the very first time. For his third and final voyage beginning July 12th 1776, Captain Cook commanded HMS Resolution in search of the Northwest Passage. This voyage was different to his previous two, however. Britain was at war as its American colonies fought for their own sovereignty. The Declaration of Independence had been signed on the Fourth of July, just eight days before the Resolution sailed, and the already perilous journey was now also in danger of capture from American pirates ready to hold the vessels hostage on their voyage home. It is notable that Benjamin Franklin, American Minister to the court of France, wrote a letter requesting free passage for Cook, as a mark of respect for the man himself and also in recognition of the importance of the journey's mission. Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing and staining in margins. We will not be knowingly undersold on this work of art.

      S. Palmer, London 1728 - 407 pages. 27 x 20 cm. [A4-a4-c4,d1, *A4-*B4,B4-Fff4]. Twelve copper engraved fold-out plates. Engraved title, head and tail designs after John Pine and J. Grison. Pemberton, a physician studied medicine under Boerhaave. He was a member of the Royal Society to which he contributed many papers: one of which came to the attention of Newton, and thus, a long friendship ensued. Newton employed him to superintend the third edition of the "Principia." Pemberton saw much of Darwin in his old age. "Probably the most famous (popularization of Newtonian philosphy) is that by Henry Pemberton.Pemberton's book is an excellent summary.So the reader of Pemberton would have emerged with a good idea of the whole Newtonian achievement, in the realm of physics. The presentation is relatively non mathematical.his remarks on what Newton believed are of great interest and the anecdotes are well founded." [see: KNIGHT. pp.66-67]. List of Subscribers.

        Atlas maritimus & commercialis; or, a general view of the world, so far as relates to trade and navigation / Sailing Directions for All the Known Coasts and Islands on the Glob, with a Sett of Sea-Charts

      London: James Knapton, 1728. Two parts in one volume. Illustrated with 53 of 54 fine uncolored copper plate maps, (last celestial chart is missing with a full size facsimile version provided from the British Library edition), and 5 fold-out diagrams tipped into the second text. Title page printed in black and red, foreword, preface, list of subscribers, and list of charts. Dedication page has a repair to the margin. "Atlas maritimus & commercialis," 340 pp. plus index. "General Coasting Pilot," 195 pp. plus maps. Page numbers written in ink. Elephant folio (21.25" x 13"), scuffing and corner wear to original brown leather binding, gilt spine in 8 compartments. Some toning and light scattered foxing to text and maps. Repairs to World Chart, North America chart and Celestial map along bottom fold out, small abrasion in margin of China map. Bookplate pasted down with Coat of Arms of Verney. This commercial sea atlas was published in 1728 as a guide to British global commerce. Today, it is a historically significant English overview of world trade during a rapid period of development of the British Empire's trading power. The atlas consists of two parts. The first is the "Atlas Maritimus & Commercialis" proper, which provides a geographical overview of the world as it relates to trade and navigation. It also gives an account of contemporary commerce, including the traded commodities of each country. The second part is "A General Coasting Pilot" by Nathaniel Cutler, which provides sailing directions. The volume was published anonymously, though the maps are often attributed to Sir Edmond Halley, the Astronomer Royal of Britain, who also wrote the prefatory note discussing the charts' use. The atlas's emphasis on commerce in addition to geography distinguishes it from "The English Pilot," the period's standard in maritime charts. It was also notable for covering the entire globe, including the south and west coasts of America, in one volume. This is an early issue of the Atlas, with A Chart of the Coast of Scotland on a globular projection. London: 1728.Sir Edmond Halley (1656--1742) was an English astronomer, geophysicist, mathematician, meteorologist, and physicist known for computing the orbit of the eponymous Halley's Comet. He was the second Astronomer Royal in Britain after John Flamsteed. John Senex (1678-1740) was a kind of Renaissance man of the 18th-century map world, working at times as a scholar, surveyor, engraver, astrologer, book seller and publisher of maps, atlases and globes. In a short period, he developed from an apprentice into one of the most important cartographers of the period and became a Fellow of the Royal Society of London, as well as Official Geographer to Queen Anne of Great Britain. A wonderful rarity about 'Globular Projection" maps which was invented by Halley, Harris and Senex. Includes the unforgettable large four sheet map "A Chart of the Atlantick Ocean Shewing the Coast from Texel to C. Cantin".

        Historia Plantarum Rariorum. Centuriae primae Decas 1-4 (of 5).

      - London, R. Reily, 1728 (-1737?). Folio (515 x 355 mm). pp. (6), iv, 42, including the engraved dedication leaf to the Royal Society, title printed in black and red, large engraved and mezzotint headpiece and initial printed in black and green at the opening of the preface, 40 mezzotint plates printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Elisha Kirkall after paintings by Jacob Van Huysum, Massey and G. Sartorys. Contemporary calf, later rebacked spine with red gilt lettered label. A fine copy of the first 4 parts without the final part with 10 more plates. It is the first botanical book illustrated with colour-printed plates. It is devoted to new species growing at the Chelsea Physic Garden and the Cambidge Botanic Garden. 'The work is of particular interest as it contains some of the earliest examples of colour-printing from a single metal plate. These plates were executed by Kirkall in a mixture of line engraving - for the titles and the coat of arms of the dedications - etchings, and mezzotinting. Many of the prints in the 'Historia' are printed in green but some are printed in two or more colours from a single plate at one impression. All were afterwards touched by hand' (Henrey II, p. 53). 30 of the fine plates are after Jacob van Huysum, a flower painter born at Amsterdam. He worked in England from about 1721 and was the brother of the famous Dutch flower painter Jan van Huysum. Each plate is dedicated to a patron-subscriber with an engraved coat-of-arms or monogram.The plates depict plants from Cape of Good Hope (a few Pelargosiums and a Mesem), North America and the West Indies.Great Flower Books, p. 118; Nissen BBI, 1289; Dunthorne 193.; Gunn & Codd, Botanical Exploration of Southern Africa, 63.

        The Arts of Logick and Rhetorick, Illustrated by Examples taken out of the best Authors, Antient and Modern, In all the Polite Languages. Interpreted and ExplainÕd By that Learned and Judicious CritickÉTo which are added Parallel Quotations Out of the Most Eminent English Authors in Verse and Prose: Wherein the like Observations are made on their Beauties and Blemishes in all the various Kinds of Thought and Expression.

      London: John Clark and Richard Hett.[et al.], 1728. - Bouhours (1628-1702) was a Jesuit professor of rhetoric and belles lettres at the Collge de Clermont, among others. He was a friend of Boileau, La Fontaine, La Bruyre, Racine, and Bussy-Rabutin. The present work first appeared in 1687. In the ÒAvertissementÓ to the French text, he notes that he does not intend for this work to have any connection with the Port-Royal Logic, or seek to use the methods of Aristotle or Descartes the set rules governing thinking. He sought rather to show readers how to form correct judgments in matters concerning eloquence and belles-lettres. The work consists of four dialogues between two fictional persons named Eudoxe and Philanthe, in which they ponder over what makes a literary work great. Topics discussed include truthfulness, sublimity, agreeableness, clarity and intelligibility in style. The work was immensely popular, being reprinted twenty-four times in the next hundred years and being translated into English, Latin, and German. xxxii, 232, pp, 225-418, [16, index], [2, ads] pp. Text is continuous despite pagination. Title-page in black and red. Contemporary paneled calf, rebacked to style. Gilt spine with red morocco label, edges sprinkled red. Light tape stains on front cover. Ink signature of Thomas Foxcroft (1697-1769), pastor of the Congregational Church in Boston, admired for his skills as a logician. Additional ink signature of Joseph E. Foxcroft (1773-1852), colonel, merchant, sheriff, state senator and postmaster from New Gloucester, Maine. Ink notations on back endpapers, including a index, in the hand of one of the two Foxcrofts. A good and interesting copy. First edition of this second English translation of BouhoursÕ important book. As Howell notes in Eighteenth-Century British Logic and Rhetoric, this is really more of a paraphrase of Bouhours, with added references to English writers, and as such, is almost a new work, and an important one in the history of English literary criticism. The first English edition appeared in 1705 as The Art of Criticism: or, The Method of Making a Right Judgment Upon Subjects of Wit and Learning. The translator is given as Òa person of quality.Ó The present translationÑor paraphraseÑby John Oldmixon (1673-1742) quickly eclipsed the earlier translation. The key interest lies in the fact that Oldmixon Ònot only translated belles lettres into Ôpolite Learning,Õ and specified that this phrase embraced works of history, poetry and eloquence, but he also suggested that his own title was dictated by what Bouhours had said when he called his original work a discourse on Ôboth the Arts and Logick and RhetorickÕ. Moreover, by adding copious English illustrations to those given by Bouhours in French, Italian, Latin and Spanish, and by speaking words of blame or praise for English writers, Oldmixon gave the arts of logic and rhetoric a central place in the study and criticism of literature of his own landÉBy putting rhetoric in this kind of framework, Oldmixon was helping to prepare the way for its emergence in England as the acknowledged custodian of the belles lettresÉ (Howell, p. 529).

        A Canoe of the Sandwich Islands, the Rowers Masked

      - This outstandingly detailed copper-plate engraving depicting a scene in Captain Cooks Journey. Overall this print measures 21.5" x 16". Captain James Cook (1728-1779) was a British navigator, explorer and cartographer with the Royal Navy. In 1766, Cook began what would be three separate voyages to the Pacific, studying, charting and documenting the Pacific and island inhabitants. The engravings and images produced from these great eighteenth-century voyages presented the world with scientific and ethnographic data, pictorial representations, and cartographic discoveries of the pacific from its northern reaches to its southern extremities for the very first time. For his third and final voyage beginning July 12th 1776, Captain Cook commanded HMS Resolution in search of the Northwest Passage. This voyage was different to his previous two, however. Britain was at war as its American colonies fought for their own sovereignty. The Declaration of Independence had been signed on the Fourth of July, just eight days before the Resolution sailed, and the already perilous journey was now also in danger of capture from American pirates ready to hold the vessels hostage on their voyage home. It is notable that Benjamin Franklin, American Minister to the court of France, wrote a letter requesting free passage for Cook, as a mark of respect for the man himself and also in recognition of the importance of the journey's mission. Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing and staining in margins. We will not be knowingly undersold on this work of art.

      Francisco del Hierro, Madrid 1728 - Quarto, pp [24], 333, [6]. Beautiful engraved title page using printers' devices. Sabin (59627) notes: "This book contains important notices about the foundation of Mexico" It is in fact a history of the foundation (1666)and early years of the first Franciscan convent for women, Capuchinas, San Felipe de Jesus in Mexico City. In addition to a detailed history of the trials of the first 6 nuns who had come over from Spain to make this foundation, much information is also given on the construction and architecture as well of this important institution. Beristain knows nothing of the author, except that he was a franciscan of the Mexican province, centered in Mexico City. Rather scarce book, never reprinted, at auction only once (1981) in the last 25 years, and only six copies noted on OCLC. [Beristain v:124: Sabin 59627].

Howgego 63 intermediate between states 4 and 5. Large and detailed plan of London.The map bears grid lines for ease of reference, with the major public buildings such as Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham House, and the Tower of London are represented as birds-eye views. The text upon the map gives the extent of London as "7500 Geometric paces, that is above 7 English Miles and a half" from west to east and "2500 paces, or 2 miles and a half" from north to south. There are about 5000 streets. The number of houses is calculated to be 110,000. The population is guessed at "by what is eaten": "There were in one Year, when it was less by two thirds [ie. in the mid seventeenth century], 67500 Beefs, 10 times as many Sheep, Besides Poultry &c. also every Year is brought into the River 400,000 at least Charldon of Coales". Also the number of "Buryings" was said to number 26,000 per year. The amount of ale and beer produced is said to be 20,000 barrels. Bowles acknowledges the source of these numbers as Sir William Petty (1623-1687), who through some crude statistical analysis calculated the population in the mid-seventeenth century. He estimated that there were 115,846 families and 695,076 souls; more than Paris, Rome, Rouen or Amsterdam, which were said to have some 500,000 souls. To the left of the text is a list of watermen and hackney carriage rates.Scale: 7 1/2 inches to 1 statute mile.
