        A GENERAL HISTORY OF THE LIVES AND ADVENTURES OF THE MOST FAMOUS HIGHWAYMEN, MURDERERS, STREET-ROBBERS, &c. TO WHICH IS ADDED, A GENUINE ACCOUNT OF THE VOYAGES AND PLUNDERS OF THE MOST NOTORIOUS PYRATES. INTERSPERSED WITH SEVERAL DIVERTING TALES, AND PLEASANT SONGS. AND ADORNED WITH THE HEADS OF THE MOST REMARKABLE VILLAINS, CURIOUSLY ENGRAVEN ON COPPER

      London. 1734.. [2],484,[2]pp. plus twenty-six plates. Folio. Contemporary calf, tooled in blind, rebacked, leather label. Extremities rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Light to moderate foxing and soiling. Some leaves with repairs at edges, not affecting text. Still, a very good copy. First edition of this great classic of lowlife literature. This work incorporates portions of Alexander Smith's HISTORY OF THE LIVES OF...HIGHWAYMEN, as well as Johnson's A GENERAL HISTORY OF...PIRATES, published in 1724 (and not to be confused with this rarer work) Johnson's works are generally ascribed to Daniel Defoe, but this volume was published ten years after Defoe's death, and it is not recorded by Moore as a posthumous publication. Perhaps someone else took on the Charles Johnson pseudonym, or perhaps Johnson himself actually existed. The section on the lives of the pirates comprises pages 197-316 and includes chapters on Mary Read, Ann Bonny, Black Beard, Captain Avery, Henry Morgan, and many more. The work is of Americana interest in that some of the exploits took place in North America. The illustrations include depictions of John Falstaff, Captain Avery, and Black Beard. There is a wealth of stories of English highwaymen, robbers, cutpurses, and thugs. A must-have for collectors of outlaw and pirate literature. NMM 4:274. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 734/111. HILL 892. GOSSE, MY PIRATE COLLECTION, pp.48-49. ESTC T112552.

        A Large Draught of the Coast of Arabia from Maculla to Dofar

      London: William Mount & Thomas Page, [1734]. Copper-engraved sea chart by Sutton Nichols, in excellent condition apart from a small expert repair to the lower right and left corners. 19 x 22 3/4 inches. A very fine sea chart of the coast of Yemen and Oman from the celebrated Third Book of 'The English Pilot' This very attractive sea chart depicts the coast of the Arabian Peninsula from Al Makullah in Yemen to Dhofar in Oman. The coastal view is bisected into two images, separated by a border formed by the elegant tendrils of a vine. The upper view depicts the southern, while the lower portrays the northern aspect of the coast. Prominent features of the desert coastline are depicted, while compass roses, from which radiate rhumb lines, decorate the seas. In 1671, the London cartographer John Seller (fl.1664-97) commenced work on The English Pilot, a work that intended to challenge Dutch hegemony in the sea atlas market. Intended to be published in four books covering different regions of the globe, Seller published an uncompleted book on 'Oriental navigation' in 1675. Unable to continue this Herculean endeavour, Seller sold his rights to John Thornton, the official hydrographer to the English East India Company. Thornton took up the project with great fervour, publishing his first editions in 1689. Thornton did not publish his first edition of the Third Book, detailing navigation in the East Indies, until 1703. While Thornton largely based his charts on those of earlier Dutch cartographers, most notably those found in Pieter Goos' Zee-Spiegel and Lucas Janz Waghenaer's Mariner's Mirror, The English Pilot proved to be enormously popular. When John Thornton died in 1708, his brother Samuel took over the business and added to and modified existing charts. All four books were produced in editions until the 1760s, the Third Book ran into twelve editions up to 1761. The project succeeded in giving the English dominance in the sea chart market as the eighteenth-century progressed. Tibbetts, Arabia in Early Maps, 177; Cf. Phillips, Atlases, 4278-18; Verner & Skelton (eds.), John Thornton - The English Pilot: The Third Book (Facsimile 1703 edition)

        A General History of the Lives and Adventures of the Most Famous Highwaymen, Murderers, Street-Robbers Etc. To Which is Added a Genuine Account of the Voyages and Plunders of the Most Notorious Pyrates

      London: J. Janeway, 1734. [4], 484pp, [2]. Later full straight-grain morocco, raised bands, spine in six panels, author / title to second panel, place / date to third, remaining panels with central lozenge made up of flowers and leafy stem tools with volute and flower head corner pieces, covers with a triple fillet and dog-tooth roll border with a large armorial centrepiece with thistles to head and tail, double fillet to edges, elaborate roll to inner dentelles, a.e.g., with silk endpapers embossed with lions rampant and thistles. Slightly rubbed to extremities, upper cover with a two inch scrape beneath the gilt centrepiece. Internally very lightly browned but generally bright and clean. Title in red and black, with twenty-five full page engravings. A sumptuous copy of this classic work, the leading source for all subsequent piratical literature, much copied and pirated. Johnson's identity is unknown, the work is often attributed to Daniel Defoe, see Moore's 'A Checklist of the Writings of Daniel Defoe', but Furbank and Owens 'de-attribute' it in their critique of Moore's checklist. The first edition in this format, (Johnson's 'Lives of the Pyrates' was first published a decade earlier), much of the material was taken from Smith's 'Live's of Noted Highwaymen, Robbers, Thieves and Pickpockets' (1714), to which was added the chapters on pirates. Uncommon, especially complete and in such wonderful condition. Moore 458; Furbank and Owens, pg 133; NMM IV:274. First Thus. Full Morocco. Very Good. Illus. by Basire, J.. Folio.

        A Map of the British Empire in America with the French and Spanish settlements adjacent thereto

      London: "Engrav'd by Willm. Henry Toms", [circa 1734]. Folio. ( 20 3/8 x 15 3/4 inches). Map engraved by William Henry Toms (with twenty-two integral inset views and plans), on 15 double-page and 5 single-page sheets, mounted on guards throughout, preceded by a folding double-page key map by Toms, with very fine full period hand-colouring throughout. Contemporary manuscript list of maps on front free endpaper with corresponding manuscript numbers in the top right corner of each map, two contemporary manuscript additions on sheet 6 at the entrance to Delaware Bay ("Cape May" and "Cape Hinlopen"). Contemporary English red morocco binding, the covers with elaborate border in gilt, built up from fillets, roll tools, and various small tools, expertly rebacked to style, spine in eight compartments with raised bands, overall repeat decoration composed of small tools in each compartment. A monument to the cartography of 18th- century America: a spectacular fully-coloured copy of the first large- scale map of North America, and the first printed map to show the thirteen colonies. Popple maps with full contemporary colour are exceedingly rare and exceptionally beautiful. The colouring allied with a contemporary English red morocco binding suggests that this copy was prepared for a high-status original owner. Popple produced this map under the auspices of the Lord Commissioners of Trade and Plantations to help settle disputes arising from the rival expansion of English, Spanish and French colonies. "France claimed not only Canada, but also territories drained by the Mississippi and it's tributaries - in practical terms, an area of half a continent" (Goss The Mapping Of North America p.122.) The present copy of Popple's map, with its full contemporary hand-colouring, would have been particularly useful in these disputes. Mark Babinski in his masterly monograph on this map notes that 'The typical coloring of fully colored copies ... is described best by a contemporary manuscript legend on the end-paper affixing the Key map to the binding in the King George III copy at the British Library: "Green - Indian Countrys. Red - English. Yellow - Spanish. Blue - French. Purple - Dutch." The careful demarcation of the disputed areas by colour would have made the identification of whether a particular location was in one or another 'zone' a great deal easier. Thus the colouring adds a whole new dimension to a map that is usually only seen in its uncoloured state, and perhaps suggests that the copies with full hand-colouring were, in general, originally produced for some official use to do with the international land disputes of the time. Benjamin Franklin, on May 22, 1746, ordered two copies of this map, "one bound, the other in sheets," for the Pennsylvania Assembly. It was the only map of sufficient size and grandeur available - and the map is on a grand scale: if actually assembled it would result in a rectangle over eight feet square. Its coverage extends from the Grand Banks off Newfoundland to about ten degrees west of Lake Superior, and from the Great Lakes to the north coast of South America. Several of the sections are illustrated with handsome pictorial insets, including views of New York City, Niagara Falls, Mexico City, and Quebec, and inset maps of Boston, Charles-Town, Providence, Bermuda, and a number of others. "Henry Popple...came from a family whose members had served the Board of Trade and Plantations for three generations, a connection that must have been a factor in his undertaking the map, his only known cartographic work" (McCorkle America Emergent 21.) Babinski has made a detailed study of the issues and states of the Popple map. This copy, however, is an unrecorded variant issue (though resembling in many respects Babinski's 4a) without the engraved "1" in the upper left corner of the first map, with Searle's name removed from the imprint on sheet 20, with the manuscript additions at the entrance to Delaware Bay on sheet six, sheet 10 without the Georgia overslip or manuscript additions, etc. The key map is in Babinski's state 1, with only Toms' name below the border at the bottom and no additional place names in the 17 small insets.

Stroh & Ekelöf Kronologisk förteckninga öfver Emanuel Swedenborgs skrifter 95. Hyde Bibliography of Swedenborg's works 228-30. Bibliotheca Walleriana 11018. Utgiven av Fredrik Hekelius. Verkets sällsynthet i komplett skick illustreras väl av att Kungliga bibliotekets ena exemplar också saknar porträttet i första delen, det andra exemplaret saknar en plansch i tredje delen. Av fyra tidigare jämförda exemplar saknar samtliga bladet med anvisningar för bokbindaren, vilket även tycks vara fallet med Wallers exemplar. Arbetet, och i synnerhet första delen "Principia rerum naturalium", anses kanske vara det största svenska naturfilosofiska arbetet som skrivits. Här utreds världens uppkomst, uppbyggnad och mekaniska lagar. Ett betydande inflytande över den Swedenborgska mekanistiska världsbilden ska Polhems vid tiden opublicerade naturfilosofiska tankegångar ha haft. Utgångspunkten är cartesiansk, men med den väsentliga skillnaden att planeterna och solsystemet skulle ha slungats ut ur solens massa och inte att de var slocknade stjärnor som dragits in i solvirveln. För Newtons ideer, som ändå vid tiden var välbekanta för Swedenborg, lämnas anmärkningsvärt nog inget utrymme. Sten Lindroth tror att huvuddragen för kosmogonin är hämtade dels ur Polhems idéer, dels ur Swedenborgs poetiska inbillning. De två följande delarna är av mer jordnära natur. "De ferro" och "De cupro" behandlar främst metallurgiska framställningsmetoder. De har kanske sitt största vetenskapliga värde som encyklopedier i europeisk bergshantering. Bl.a är ett större avsnitt i andra delen ägnat gruvdriften i Sibirien och illustrerat med en stor utvikbar karta. "De ferro" utgavs i svensk översättning 1923. Carl Gustaf Lewenhaupt ägde gården Aske i Håtuna socken i Uppland. Hans boksamling omfattade ca 10000 band och innehöll mycket historia, resor, genealogi och heraldik samt många ströskrifter från frihetstiden och gustaviansk tid. Grundstommen till biblioteket var ett arv efter Johan af Nordin
