        The Kit-Cat Club Done from the Original Paintings of Sir Geodfrey Kneller.

      - London: Sold by J. Tonson in the Strand and Mr. Faber at the Golden Head Bloomsbury Square, 1735. Folio, (18-3/8 x 12-7/8 inches). Title page by Faber after Gravelot plus 47 mezzotint portraits by Faber after Kneller mounted on thick paper stock, outlined in ink. Without the engraved dedication found in some copies.Each leaf trimmed outside the plate mark. Regency straight-grained red morocco handsomely tooled in gilt and blind. A handful of old and largely inconsequential abrasions on bottom cover with occasional quality repair; backstrip with some rubbing and a little wear at the foot. Bookplates on front pastedown and flyleaf of Frances Mary Richardson Currer (the foremost female English collector) and John Sheepshanks (the great art collector). Like its contents, an aristocratic copy. Very good. Only edition -- perhaps a deluxe copy with superb impressions of the plates and in a lovely Regency binding. When contemplating the career of Jacob Tonson the Elder, one usually considers his status as the greatest publisher and bookseller of his era, reprinting authors such as Dryden and Milton whose works had fallen out of copyright; his 1694 folio edition of Virgil is quite often considered his masterpiece. But he was also the founder of Òthe most famous of all literary clubs,Ó the club which Horace Walpole credited as populated by the Òpatriots that saved Britain.Ó What began as a rather informal congregation of luminaries became Òat its height in the first decade of the eighteenth century, BritainÕs pre-eminent political club and leading promoter and sponsor of the Whig party and its advocacy of contract theories of government, low-church interests, and the rights of religious nonconformists.Ó Neither minutes nor roll call were taken, and were it not for the series Òof forty-eight portraits of club affiliates commissioned by Tonson from the court painter Sir Godfrey KnellerÓ our knowledge of the groupÕs membership would be strained. As it stands today, the members list is impressive: Jacob Tonson, Joseph Addison, William Congreve, William Cowper. Robert Walpole, James Stanhope, Matthew Prior and John Tidcomb, to name a few. The subjects of these portraits usually gifted them to Tonson and the paintings subsequently made their way to the National Portrait Gallery. As evidenced by its distinguished provenance, this copy has very rich early impressions of the plates and is luxuriously bound. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Description géographique, historique, chronologique, politique, et physique de l'empire de la Chine et de la Tartarie chinoise.

      Paris, P.G. Le Mercier, 1735.4 volumes Folio. Contemporary mottled calf (small parts of hinges cracked but firmly holding; extremities of spines sl. damaged), spines ribbed and gilt with red and green morocco labels. With 4 title-pages printed in red and black with title-vignettes, 5 engraved vignettes, 23 engraved plates (10 folding) and 42 double-page or folding engraved maps.First edition of the 'Bible of European sinophilia'. - The most important and comprehensive work on China published up to that time. Du Halde, a Parisian Jesuit, collected and edited the letters of the Jesuit missionaries for this work. The fine plates depict all aspects of China and Chinese life including flora and fauna, engineering, astronomy, etc. The folio edition includes many important maps not previously published before, the maps are the most accurate of China available in Europe at the time. They are by Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville (1697-1782), the 'finest cartographer of his time'. - 'Historically, this work must be regarded as monumental. Its strenght lies in the vast amount and variety of interesting details, which must have given its readers an impression of the magnificence of the Chinese empire and the wide range of achievements of the Chinese people in literature, science, philosophy and art' (Löwendahl, Sino-Western relations, 394). The first French folio edition is the most desirable and significant. - Some marginal waterstaining and age-browning otherwise a very good copy of a cornerstone of any collection of books on China.Cordier, B.S.,col. 46-48; Lust 16.

        Dickdook Leshon Gnebreet. A Grammar of the Hebrew Tongue, Being An Essay to bring the Hebrew +Grammar into English, to Facilitate the Instruction of all those who are desirous of aquiring a clear Idea of this Primitive Language by their own Studies

      Boston, N.E.: Printed by Jonas Green, and are to be Sold by the Author at his House in Cambridge, 1735. First edition. [4], 94, [2] pp. With a tipped-in broadside of "The Hebrew Grammar at One View, " from Parkhurst's "An Hebrew and English lexicon, " probably the 1762 edition. 1 vols. 4to. Three quarter speckled calf and marbled boards. Light stains on folding table, title-page and following three leaves. Final leaf (containing table of contents) with a one-inch triangular tear in the outer edge, costing about a dozen words. Several instances of early ink marginalia or doodlings. Very good. First edition. [4], 94, [2] pp. With a tipped-in broadside of "The Hebrew Grammar at One View, " from Parkhurst's "An Hebrew and English lexicon, " probably the 1762 edition. 1 vols. 4to. The First Hebrew Grammar Published in America. A landmark in the history of printing in the Americas, this is the first Hebrew grammar published in America, printed from "the first complete fount of Hebrew type in the American colonies" (Eames).  This copy bears the manuscript name, in two places (the upper margin of pages 20 and 94), of Simeon Howard.  Howard (1733-1804) attended Harvard, graduating in 1758.  He was almost certainly a student of Monis and would have used this book as his textbook.  For more than thirty-five years Howard was the pastor of the West Church in Boston, one of the most influential churches in the city.   Hebrew type was first used in the North American colonies in the Bay Psalm Book, printed in 1640 in Cambridge.  Over the next ninety-five years Hebrew type appeared in a handful of American imprints, usually in brief examples of single words or short sentences.  By the 1720s, measures were taken to change this situation.  As Eames explains, "In 1726, Mr. Thomas Hollis, merchant of London, sent over three boxes of Greek and Hebrew types, a present from one of his friends to the Corporation of Harvard College.  Upon examination by Mr. Monis, the instructor of Hebrew in the College, the set of Hebrew types was found to be incomplete, therefore in June, 1728, the Corporation voted to send for so many Hebrew types and points as were necessary to complete the set."   Judah Monis, born in Algiers or Italy in 1683, had settled in Boston by 1720.  In 1723 he was awarded an M.A. from Harvard, and he was the instructor of Hebrew there (though never a full professor) until 1760.  Monis published several works in his lifetime, and though the present grammar was accessible to any educated person, it was produced "especially for the use of the students of Harvard-College at Cambridge."  He attempted to publish the book in 1720 and again in 1726, but was hindered partly by the paucity of Hebrew types noted above.  The book was finally printed in 1735 by Jonas Green, the grandson of Samuel Green, who was the second printer in the British colonies, preceded only by Stephen Day (who printed the Bay Psalm Book).  Jonas Green apprenticed under his father, Timothy Green, himself a noted printer in New London, Ct.  Jonas Green printed a few items in Boston before moving on to Philadelphia (where he worked for Franklin and Bradford) and Annapolis, where he became printer to the colony in the 1740s.  The DICKDOOK... was printed in an edition believed to be a thousand copies, and was used by students at a number of New England colleges, including Dartmouth.   A landmark of American printing history, and of Jewish Americana.

Published for eighteenth-century European travelers and for military officers. The maps are preceded by a folding hand- coloured engraving of "L'Architecture Militaire" that illustrates fortification technique and the many instruments of war in use by European military troops in the first half of the eighteenth century. Johannes Ratelband (II) (1704-1730) was one of the key members of a long dynasty of Dutch printers/book and map sellers in Amsterdam. The firm began with Jansz. Ratelband (1590-1656), who moved from Germany to set up a press and shop in Amsterdam at the beginning of the seventeenth century. The firm flourished uninterrupted until the 1820s, perpetuated by a succession of family members. This Pocket Atlas includes: a world map, continental maps of Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America, then more detailed maps of: Germany, Hungary, Transylvania, the Balkans, Bavaria, the Palantine along the Rhine, Basel and Lake Neuchâtel, England, Scotland, Northern and Southern Spain, Catalonia, a large map of Gibraltar, the Strait of Gibraltar, Central America and the Caribbean, Portugal and the Algarve, France, Provence, Languedoc, Moscow region, Crimea, Poland, Scandinavia, Holland and Luxemburg, Flanders, North Holland, Amstellande, Brabant, Belgium (Leodiensis), Italy, the Piedmont, etc. Many of these maps include coats-of-arms of the countries, towns or regions, and well as detailed views of fortified cities and castles. The titles and legends for all maps are in Dutch and French. A few minor splits to lower edges of folds, otherwise, in perfect condition. Very Rare: OCLC list two copies of the Atlas worldwide; one in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris (1732 edition) and one in the British Library (1747 edition with 37 maps). No copies appearing at auction as listed by ABPC. Not in Koeman nor Shirley: though Koeman cites an edition of 1732 with 37 maps (K. III, Rat. 1) and edition of 1747 also with 37 maps (Shirley, G.Rat- 1a).

Augsburg: Johann Andreas Pfeffel, ca. 1730. Millard, Northern 17. |~||~||~||~||~| Five volumes on 18th-century Salzburg architecture and gardens, all in First Editions, with an important provenance. A total of 60 etched and engraved plates after designs by Franz Anton Danreiter. Includes two title-pages and 58 images of gardens, cathedrals and other structures, landscape design, and schematic plans for important castles and gardens in and around Salzburg. The first title has an engraved title-page and 20 plates depicting cathedrals and a hospital; the second with engraved dedication leaf and 5 plates of plans and buildings of Schloss Mirabell; the third, 9 plates of gardens and a garden plan of Mirabell; the fourth consists of 4 plates showing Schloss Salzburg; and the fifth with an allegorical engraved title and 19 images of gardens, fountains, and other structures at Hellbrun. Text at bottom of plates in German and French. Franz Anton Danreiter (d. 1760) was appointed by Leopold Prince of Salzburg as Inspector of Gardens (Oberaufseher aller Salzburgichen Hofgärten). Leopold was the owner of the estate at Hellbrun, and the present work provides some of the very few eighteenth-century visual records of the gardens. Danreiter was responsible for planting the famous garden of the Schloss Mirabell and later supervised the construction of the Sebastiankirche in Salzburg. The palace of Hellbrun, located three miles south of Salzburg, was built around 1615. It contains the famous mechanical theaters, as well as the acclaimed fountains. Danreiter's Garten Propect von Hellbrun contains an allegorical title-page, a plan of the estate showing the designs of the gardens, a view of the entrance of the Jardin de Plaisance, a view of the Batiment de Plaisance, two views of the gardens from the park, three views of the courtyards of the palace, views of the Grotto of Neptune and of Thetis, a view of the eerie sculptures in the woods entitled: Le Monstre de la Forêt, views of the fountains of Cleopatra, of Actaeon, and of Diane, views of the garden theaters of stones and of shells, a view of the garden pond, a view of the Édifice de Plaisance, and finally, a view of Belvedere, the Maison de Plaisance. The plates are in fine condition, in a beautiful binding. PROVENANCE: Sir William Sterling Maxwell, baronet, (1818-1878) with his large ex-libris on inside front cover and blind-stamped monogram on covers; Keir Art of Design, with ex-libris on inside back cover; Liberna "L" in circular blind-stamp at foot of first blank leaf. Sterling-Maxwell was one of the thirty-five original members of the Philobiblon Society and a member of the Athenaeum Club.

RLIN lists one of the fifth at Canadian Centre for Architecture. Not in Hunt, Plesch, Nissen or Pritzel. First and third not in Berlin Katalog, second 3335, fourth 2109, fifth 3334.

        Columbarium: or, the pigeon-house. Being an introduction to a natural history of tame pigeons. (with) an account of some medicines prepar’d by John Moore apothecary.

      J. Wilford, London 1735 - 8vo. xiv, 80 pp. Contemporary speckled calf. A most beautirul copy in superb condition FIRST EDITION OF A GREAT RARITY - ONE OF A HANDFUL KNOWN OF THE ORIGINAL PRINTED COPY. Complete, with the medical section of this pioneering study of pigeons. "With a partiality usually shewn to the victor, the Hawk has engaged the pen of many a writer: But his Prey . . . has scarce met with that" (dedication to Sir William Stapleton, Baronet). This is the "earliest English work giving a description of the different varietie of the domestic pigeon" (Casey Wood). Accordingly, Moore (d. 1737), well known for his worm powder which cures ailments including scurvy, measles, the King’s Evil, Sciatica, cholick, and much more, is considered the pre-eminent of all pigeon fanciers. Among some of the topics the author treats is the method of building a loft, the generation and breeding of pigeons, identification of various types of pigeons, their diet, their usefulness and their dung. Of special interest is his chapter on carrier pigeons. He was not only a very judicious fancier, but a gentlemen (chemist) who spared no pain to make himself acquainted with the diseases of these birds and to apply the best methods of cure. In the eighteenth and nineteenth century Moore’s treatise was copied line by line and page by page, though loaded with errors. It was reissued with a new introduction by W.B. Tegetmeier, the leading authority on pigeons who "introduced Darwin to the institutions of the fancy, took him to shows, and answered numerous queries in correspondence" (OBNB). In 1868 Tegetmeier wrote "there is no accurate reprint of Moore’s Columbarium. Matthew Eaton’s 1852 treatise on pigeons was a "cut up copy of Moore with additional erratic notes by Eaton." He also pointed out that John Mayor (pseud. of Daniel Girton) in 1765 plagiarized (or as he put it "cabbaged") and basically copied Moore. He was surprised that Mayor "did not have a little more candour or honour in acknowledging Moore." Apparently no one could find an original copy, suggesting there was only one or two printed. Most writers on the subject acknowledged that they did not know whether more than one copy of this work even existed. It was also noted in the Journal of Horticulture and Cottage Gardner, October 24, 1865, Volume XXXIV, page 350, that finding a copy of the original took Eaton a few years, a great deal of money, and when he finally found a copy, "he had to bribe the fancier."The story goes that apparently Moore was timid, and had little cash. With the few copies unsold his wife used to light their fire. Much of the research on this work is concerned with the history of finding an original copy such as we offer here.OCLC locates 5 copies in America, of which only 3 have the full 80 pages; British Museum Catalogue notes 4 copies, though only 1 has the full 80 pages; Casey Wood, p. 471 [Attributes: First Edition]

        Recueil de Pièces Choisies rassemblées par les soins du Cosmopolite.

      - A Anconne [Veretz (Touraine)], Chez Vriel Bandant, à l'Enseigne de la Liberté [chez la duchesse d'Aiguillon ?], 1735; in-4 (238 x 170 mm), 7 + 434 pp. + 9 pp. de table, plein maroquin bleu nuit de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné de nombreux fleurons et d'un petit fer à l'oiseau répété cinq fois, pièce de titre rouge, triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats, roulettes sur les coupes, roulette intérieure, tranches dorées (infimes traces d'usage). Dutel A-967. Gay-Lemonnyer III, 956; Pia, 1253 ; Éros invaincu 26. Édition originale rarissime, qui n'aurait été imprimée qu'à 7 ou 12 exemplaires (Charles Nodier, qui en possédait un exemplaire, penchait pour 12 ; Paul Lacroix avançait en 1839 le nombre de 7). "Cet ouvrage fort rare n'a pas circulé dans le public au XVIIIe siècle, ni d'ailleurs au XIXe, et son unique réimpression, sous le manteau, en 1865, est tout autant inaccessible. Au vrai, nous ne disposons sur ce Cosmopolite que de l'information figurant sur l'exemplaire du marquis de Paulmy (1722-1787) à l'Arsenal : "Ce recueil a été fait par M. le Duc d'Aiguillon et imprimé chez lui et par lui à Veret (Veretz) en Touraine (?). C'est sans contredit (?) le recueil d'ordures le plus complet et le plus rare (?). Il y a ici beaucoup de pièces qui ne sont qu'ici (?)." Mais alors, qu'est-ce que ce Cosmopolite ? C'est un pot-pourri monstrueux rassemblant près de trois cent quinze pièces versifiées en français, entrelardées de trois ouvrages encore en vers, mais cette fois en italien, Il capittolo del forno, Dubbii amorosi et Sonetti lussuriosi." (Jacques Duprilot in Éros invaincu). Les conteurs gaillards du XVIIIe siècle sont fortement représentés dans le recueil : l'abbé de Chaulieu (Description d'un cul), Alexis Piron (L'Ode à Priape), Jacques Vergier, l'abbé de Grécourt, François-Augustin Paradis de Moncrif (on attribue parfois la préface de l'ouvrage à ce dernier). Le recueil s'ouvre par la première profession de foi déiste de Voltaire, "l'Épître à Uranie", violente attaque contre le christianisme. La présence de cette charge fait du Cosmopolite un "livre philosophique" par excellence, à la tonalité très antireligieuse" (Duprilot). L'édition aurait été orchestrée par l'épouse du duc d'Aiguillon, Anne-Charlotte de Crussol-Florensac, amie de Voltaire, et imprimée sur vergé par et pour le duc d'Aiguillon, en sa terre de Veretz, en Touraine. La page de titre, imprimée en rouge et noir, comporte un emblème xylographique aux sirènes et phallus ailés ; cette gravure est reprise sur un feuillet placé entre les pp. 48 et 49, page de titre d'une pièce intitulée "Corona di Cazzi". Cette particularité n'est signalée par aucune des bibliographies consultées. De la bibliothèque Franchetti, avec son ex-libris.

Den egentlige udgiver er Hans Gram, der har forsynet vaerket med en instruktiv fortale henvendt til det danske sprogs elskere. Bibl. Dan. IV,215. "While Kingo is known for his hymns, Bording is more succesful as an occasional poet and satirist. Perhaps his most important contribution to Danish literature is his creation of what is called "the first Danish newspaper", "Den danske Mercurius" (1666 - 1677). The 1735 edition, which includes Den danske Mercurius, is the first complete collection of Bording's poetry; it also represents the first collected edition of any Danish poet."

        Tratado do successo que teve a não Sam Joam Baptista, e iornada, que fez a gente, que della escapou, desde trinta, & tres graos no Cabo da Boa Esperança, onde fez naufragio, até Zofala, indo sempre marchando por terra

      Shipwreck off the Cape and gruelling overland March to Mozambique. 1625 [eighteenth-century counterfiet edtion, ca. 1735]. Lisbon. Pedro Craesbeeck [i.e. António Pedroso Galrão?]. In 4to (190 mm x 140 mm). 2 ff. + 5-95 pp. Manuscript foliation, "17-64" in upper outer corner of the recto of each leaf; text block edges rouged, scattered small foxing spots, else a fine copy.Second [?] edition; a counterfeit of the 1625 Craesbeeck edition -also included in Gomes de Brito's Historia tragico-maritima. The Sao Joao Baptista sailed from Goa on March 1, 1622. In July, after its companion ship disappeared near the Cape of Good Hope, two Dutch ships attacked the Sao Joao. Following a vicious 19-day battle she finally escaped, rudderless and battered, and drifted northward until the sailors managed to beach her at about 33° South. In early November the 279 survivors decided to attempt to reach Mozambique on foot. Vaz de Almada describes their battles with the Kaffirs, their desperate struggles to find food, and the fate of those who became too weak to keep up with the group. The captain attempted to maintain his authority by arbitrary beheading and hanging; in at least one case, the survivors ate the bodies of those executed. Vaz de Almada, elected leader after the captain's death near Lourenço Marques, showed considerable prudence but could not avoid the attack of over a thousand Kaffirs, who took what possessions the shipwreck victims still had and left them to stagger naked into Ponta da Barra (about 24° South). There a Portuguese ship from Sofala finally collected 32 survivors in August 1623.The 18 shipwreck narratives that make up the @História trágico-marítima are now recognized as literary masterpieces as well as invaluable historical sources.  "Written almost invariably with utmost frankness, and with an almost complete absence of literary artificiality and conceits, these narratives bring vividly before us the dangers and discomforts of life aboard the overcrowded and overloaded East-India carracks" (Boxer, p. 92). They are also of great importance for the ethnography of the South African Bantu before they came into close contact with Europeans. According to Duffy (p. 144), Vaz de Almada's account gives the most thorough description of the tribes along the coast.Boxer, An Introduction to the História Trágico-Marítima, pp. 80-2.
