        The Compleat City and Country Cook: Or, Accomplish'd Housewife.

      A. Bettesworth, C. Hitch: And C. Davis., London 1736 - The book is complete in text; all the plates are present, but the last two, numbers 48 and 49, are each partially lacking. Number 48, one of the folding plates, lacks one half of the right hand portion, and 49 lacks the bottom half of the plate. Otherwise, there are the inevitable occasional stains, thumbings and creases associated with early cookery books, but generally, apart from the damaged plates, it is a decent copy of this rare book. The binding is half chestnut calf, with raised bands, and contrasting lettering pieces which are gilt ruled. The boards are marbled and the endpapers are new. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

FIRST EDITION. 8vo (in 4s), 195 x 127 mms., pp. 30; contemporary marginalia and underlining, top margin of title-page slightly defective affecting two letters in "Design for," lacks half-title and folding plate (to which the marginalia seem to refer; supplied here in photocopy). BOUND WITH: LABELYE (Charles): A Short Account of the methods Made Use of in Laying the Foundation of the Piers of Westminster-Bridge.

To which are annex'd, The Plans, Elevations and Sections belong to a Design of a Stone-Bridge, adapted to the Stone Piers which are to support Westminster-Bridge, with an Explanation of that Design. London: Printed by A. Parker for the Author, 1739. FIRST EDITION. 8vo (in 4s), 195 x 127 mms., pp. [iv], vi, 82, with some marginalia (some deleted by rebinding) and underlining. 2 volumes in 1, rebound in the 19th century in half calf, binder's cloth; front joint cracked and tender, top and base of spine chipped, ex-library (London County Council Library), with several library stamps, and the LCC bookplate on the front paste-down end-paper. Langley (bap. 1696, d. 1751) made a reputation with his New Principles of Gardening (1728), and he also made several innovations in building procedures. He was one of several architects who competed - in his case, unsuccessfully - to build a new bridge across the Thames at Westminster in 1736 - 1737. The project was controversial and produced a number of pamphlets about the proposed method of constructing the bridge. Charles Labelye (bap. 1705, d. ?1781) was born in Switzerland and moved to England in the early 1720s. Labelye was chosen by the Commissioners to help in supervising the construction of the bridge; the stone piers were built according to his instructions, and, in 1740, the upper design was based on his work. The bridge was opened (with prediction from Langley that it would fall down) in 1750. It lasted for just over a century and was rebuilt in 1854 - 1862.

        An Enquiry into the Life and Writings of Homer [with original pen-and-ink sketch]

      [s.n.] M.DCC.XXXVI [1736], London - 8vo: [4],346,[82], with folding copper-engraved map of the Mediterranean world, frontispiece portrait of Homer, title-page vignette and 12 further half-page plates and tailpieces (one beginning and ending each section), engraved by Van der Gucht, all in excellent impressions. Contemporary mottled calf, boards framed with double gilt filet, ornately gilt-tooled spine in six compartments, red morocco lettering piece gilt, all edges speckled red, plain period end papers. Laid in is an accomplished drawing in pen and ink of the frontispiece portrait, signed and dated, "[John] Bateman 1760." (Bateman's engraved armorial book plate appears on the front paste down.) A Fine, virtually pristine copy, bright pages free of foxing and stains, clear print and ample margins, fresh gilt. In all, a highly attractive example of this seminal work of classical scholarship. Lowndes 213. Second Edition. Blackwell's reputation as a major figure of the Scottish Enlightenment rests chiefly on this pioneering study, first published anonymously in 1735. Blackwell believed that culture was learned, not inherent (a cornerstone of modern cultural anthropology), and that Homer's rank as a supreme epic poet "was the outcome of a specific historical context, social organization, geography, and climate, which combined to shape the culture he represented and which provided an ethos uniquely favourable to epic poetry. . . . A key point of the analysis was the idea of uneven development, an overlap between high civilization in the centres of Greek culture, with a continuation of relative barbarism and its attendant heroic values elsewhere. . . . In the early stages of society language was naturally bold and metaphorical, so that utterance had a rude and energetic quality which it later lost. . . . Homer was peculiarly favoured by circumstance, since he had appeared at the beginning of [this] new cultural phase, but still had personal experience of the old heroic ethos." (ODNB) Withal, Lowndes was unimpressed: "A production that displays more erudition than genius, and more affectation than elegance."

        Epistola Itineraria LII. De Mumia Brunsvicensium

      One folding engraved plate. 32 pp. Small 4to, disbound. Wolfenbuettel: 1736. First edition. Brückmann (1697-1753), a member of the Academia Caesarea Naturae Curiosorum, was a prolific author on mining, mineralogy, and related natural history subjects. He practiced medicine at Helmstädt and Braunschweig and, after receiving a considerable inheritance, traveled widely and formed an important mineral collection. He published three separate Centuria of letters (I: 1728-41, with each "Epistola" being published separately; II: 1749; and III: 1756). Mumia or mumme is a wheat brew aromatized with herbs which is especially associated with the city of Braunschweig. Mumme originated in the late Middle Ages. Its composition gave the beer a long shelf life that allowed a wide distribution throughout Europe, Britain, and India. A number of stories and myths surround the early history of mumme beer and this is the first work to gather them. Brückmann provides a history of the beer, techniques of brewing, and a number of celebratory songs and poems inspired by its consumption. Fine copy. ❧ Hirsch, I, pp. 731-32. Poggendorff, I, 312-13.

        The South West Prospect of the City of Exeter

      London., 1736. Size: 430 x 857 mm. Copperplate engraving with later hand colour. Good condition. Split and repair to upper centrefold. From 1726 to 1742, Samuel Buck (1696–1779) and his brother Nathaniel published an ambitious series of collection of perspective views ("antiquities") in the counties of England and Wales. From 1728 they worked on a parallel project, producing long prospects of all the cities, sea-ports and county towns, usually marketing their town prospects in sets of six. Though the Buck brothers were not the only ones producing views of antiquities and town prospects in the eighteenth century they were much the most prolific. Collectively their engravings provide us with an indispensable record of what English and Welsh towns looked like before the industrial revolution.

        of the blanket maker Johann Franz Hörmannsperger.

      Vienna, 1736. - Oblong folio (390 x 252 mm). 118 numbered ff. (but 115: ff. 96, 106, and 112 skipped). Calligraphic preface by Hörmannsperger, 58 full-page textile designs by the same, mostly in red, blue, green, and gilt (including one folded, double-page sized specimen and 4 ff. with 2 designs each), 7 splendid gouache washes raised in gilt and silver; bound in between these are a total of 52 engravings on 48 plates, all in splendid contemporary colour raised in gilt and silver. Contemp. marbled boards. Unique, museum-quality document of late Baroque craftsmanship among the urban Third Estate: apart from 58 meticulously executed textile designs, the album contains seven large-format gouaches showing the self-assured author practising his trade in his workshop, advertising and selling his wares to customers, as well as playing music and even bowling, but also attending the general meeting of the Viennese blanket makers. The engravings which Hörmannsperger inserted between his own works all show mundane subjects (dwarves, soldiers, caricatures, etc.): thus, his autograph textile designs and gouaches are interleaved with some of the rarest and most charming pieces produced by the 1720's Augsburg school of engraving. - The album is introduced by a self-portrait of the 26-year-old Hörmannsperger in his workshop (with his compass and one of the later-included textile designs lying on the table); on the opposite page he offers a brief preface to the volume: "for true art speaks for the master: here is a book, all mine, with many drawings, as they will be seen, all drawn by me, though I say so myself, with much time, labour, and trouble [.] I, Johann Frantz Hörmansperger" (transl.). The captions to the splendid gouaches prove the author's humour (sometimes bawdy) as well as a trait of surprising self-confidence. Pitching his self-plaited blanket to a female customer, he addresses her: "My dear lady, here's a fine blanket for you - you may well stretch yourself under this: one and a half ells wide and two in length; perfect for flipping over with your husband underneath" (transl., f. 84). Another image shows him selling saddlecloths to military officers ("we'll have these and take them into battle", f. 86); yet another shows him bowling in a Baroque garden at the weekend ("All gay and jolly, for we are journeymen of the trade: and so the virgins may be; they will not be bored - here is red and white wine, so well we may make merry", f. 94) and dancing ("Be merry all. Musicians play! Thus the blanket makers frolic and dance with pretty girls until their shoes may fall to pieces", f. 104). The final leaf shows an apprentice received into the society of blanket makers at their quarterly general assembly ("The blanket makers convene today to discuss what concerns the society: the young man must have learned his trade; he is not too tall nor too small. But he must put in his time, until he is made a journeyman", f. 118). Some of Hörmannsperger's ornamental designs, created with the use of a compass, include centerpieces showing armorial or figural motifs; one design (f. 113) is apparently a commission for Emperor Charles VI (bearing his monogram and Imperial insignia); according to the later caption, it was indeed executed for him. - Between his own works Hörmannsperger bound engravings by the great Augsburg masters of his age, all splendidly coloured and raised in gilt and silver: eight engravings from Elias Bäck's dwarf series (fencing school, drinking, gluttony, and tobacco addiction), a complete cycle of the seasons and the life stages of man by Martin Engelbrecht ("Der Menschen Jahr Veränderung"), a total of 19 of the famous engravings by Pfeffel, Schmidt, and Engelbrecht showing a soldier's life (two with movable parts), as well as a fine broadsheet by Albrecht Schmidt showing the seven Honest Swabians, and finally an untitled eight-page cycle showing the female tempers. - The Austrian and especially the Viennese bedclothes were known for their hig [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Histoire du Concile de Trente. In two volumes

      London -Samuel Idle, 1736 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Thescarce 1736Courayer Frenchtranslation of Paolo Sarpi's significant work. Written in Italian by Fra-Paolo Sarpi and newly translated into French with critical notes, histories and theologies by Pierre Francois le Courayer. With a frontispiece of Caroline de Brandebourg-Anspach, Queen of Great Britain to volume I, an illustrated head piece to the dedication opposite, a furtherportrait plate of Sarpi with a life of the author, and capitals. Complete in two volumes. Fra (Brother) Paolo Sarpi (August 14, 1552 January 15, 1623) was a Venetian patriot, scholar, scientist and church reformer. His most important roles were as a canon lawyer and historian active on behalf of the Venetian Republic. In 1619 his chief literary work Istoria del Concilio Tridentino (History of the Council of Trent), was printed at London. It appeared under the name of Pietro Soave Polano. Translations into other languages followed: there were the English translation by Nathaniel Brent and a Latin edition in 1620 made partly by Adam Newton, and French and German editions. Its emphasis was on the role of the Papal Curia, and its slant on the Curia hostile. This was unofficial history, rather than a commission, and treated ecclesiastical history as politics. This attitude was coupled with a criticism, that the Tridentine settlement was not concilatory but designed for further conflict. Sarpi was much read by Protestants; John Milton called him the great unmasker. The Council of Trent was the 16th-century Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church. It is considered to be one of the Church's most important councils. It convened in Trent (then capital of the Prince-Bishopric of Trent of the Holy Roman Empire, in Italy) between December 13, 1545, and December 4, 1563 in twenty-five sessions for three periods. The council issued condemnations on what it defined as Protestant heresies and defined Church teachings in the areas of Scripture and Tradition, Original Sin, Justification, Sacraments, the Eucharist in Holy Mass and the veneration of saints. It issued numerous reform decrees. Condition: In full calf bindings. Externally worn, much of the leather rubbed away,three boards detached and the other held by the cords only. Internally, generally firmly bound, aside from the detached endpapers. Very bright and clean throughout aside from some dusting to the top edges, occasionally affecting the margins.

An exceptional copy, the text essentially pristine, bright and fresh and unpressed, the bindings very handsome, the backs sometime restored to perfect style and preserving the original morocco labels, a most handsome and proper set, as fine as one could wish for. FINE ANTIQUARIAN FOLIO PRINTING AND THE BEST EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC WORK, BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED WITH ENGRAVED MAPS AND DOUBLE-PAGE PLATES. These are the only books published of the massive history Raleigh planned and begun while the author was imprisoned in the Tower of London after the accession of James I. Raleigh was one of the principal figures of the English Renaissance. As well as being a poet of wide repute and a successful soldier, he was one of the earliest explorers of the New World (one of its cities still bears his name). This ambitious book, which Raleigh worked on with the help of several assistants, ostensibly deals with Greek, Egyptian, and biblical history up to 168 B.C., but the preface summarizes modern European history and represents one of the earliest English views of the world and its history. It has become a classic of English Renassaince literature. This edition of 1736 was the first to include the Life and Trial of Raleigh by Mr. Oldys.

      London: Printed By W. Bowyer for the Author. 1736. First Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary full calf with six raised bands on spine with contrasting spine label bearing gilt titles, joints and corners repaired, internally clean and bright, small hole to upper margin of pp.503/04 not affecting text, collation as per Upcott pp.1357-1364 with 60 plates and maps (some folding), including the title to Part.2 with head and tail piece engraved by John Pine and a further 52 illustrations on the letter-press. Heavy item, will incur additional shipping costs for international delivery. , Francis Drake (1696-1771) was an antiquary and surgeon who came from an old Yorkshire family whose seat was at Horley Green, near Halifax. Drake received little formal education having been apprenticed at an early age to a surgeon, Christopher Birbeck. When Birbeck died in 1717 Drake took over his medical practice in York. His reputation quickly grew and he was appointed surgeon to the City in 1727. Drake married in 1720 but his wife died just eight years later and it was after her death that he began to devote his time to the study of history and to writing this history of York. The book was printed by subscription and the list of subscribers contains nearly 540 names but the name of the archbishop of York, Lancelot Blackburne, is conspicuously absent. According to Drake he refused to accept the dedication to the second part of the work and he also refused to subscribe. Drake retaliated with insulting references and by leaving out an account of Blackburne's life and an illustration of his coat of arms. The book is dedicated to Lord Burlington who not only gave Drake £50 towards completing his history but also intervened when Drake was imprisoned in the Fleet for a debt that by rights belonged to someone else. , Folio 13" - 23" tall, [xxviii] 398 [2] 399-627 cx [xxxv] pp .

        The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe

      London - Printed for T. Woodward, 1736 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Bound in the original full calf leather binding. Very scarce with the map and plates as called for. The sequel to Robinson Crusoe. This particular edition was issued with the 8th edition of Robinson Crusoe;stating volume II on the spine but it is complete in itself. It is illustrated with superb engraved plates and has a folding frontispiece of the Map of the World. This book recounts the adventures of Crusoe after leaving his island, and his desire to return to it. It covers his return to the island, also travels to Madagascar, Southeast Asia and even Siberia. The volume revisits Providence, and the device of presenting an account of supposedly factual events, known as a false document giving a realistic frame story. Defoe went on to writethis lesser-known sequel,intended to be the last part of his stories, according to the original title-page of its first edition, but in fact a third part, entitled Serious Reflections of Robinson Crusoe, was written; it is a mostly forgotten series of moral essays with Crusoe's name attached to give interest. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are attached. The front outer hinge is cracked and the front board is holding by the cords only. There is some wear to the extremities including some rubbing to the boards resulting in some slight loss to the leather. There is some bumping to the corners. Internally the book is generally clean apart from some occasional mild spots. There is a small ink spot to the fore edge. Overall the book is in good to very good condition..
