        Journey to The World Underground.

      London: T. Astley; Salisbury: Collins. 1742, 1742. First English Edition. 12mo. 324pp. Bound in recent full dark brown speckled calf with burgundy title labels and gilt decoration to spine and boards (Dragonfly binders label to rear pastedown). Handsome. Marbled endpapers. Lacking half title, ink splash to title page and small section of fore-edge otherwise internally clean; florid and rather elegant ownership to rear blank "John Brownjohn, The 26th of October, 1769". A clean, tidy copy. Very good indeed. A bizarre and important title detailing Niels Klim's journey into the underworld and his adventures therein, a satirical fantasy very much in the vein of Gulliver's Travels, albeit a trifle more gothic and lush...the picture of the Potuan denizen alone is worth the price of admission. It is notable from several points but is most widely considered to be one of the earliest science fiction novels, and likely the first to encompass the hollow earth concept as a trope.

Auction catalogue of a collection of precious books, manuscripts, and books printed on velum, from the library of a great bibliophile of the old school, though the catalogue names neither the collector, who was the bookseller Charles Chardin (1742-1826 or 1827), nor the compiler Jacques Charles Brunet (1780-1867), who had published the first edition of his pathbreaking Manuel du libraire the year before.The present sale catalogue lists 590 manuscripts, mostly on vellum and some going back to the 8th century. These include 82 Oriental manuscripts (including a few Western manuscripts about the Orient), described in a separate section: Chinese (about 33 items), Japanese, Arabic, Syriac, Indian, Turkish, Persian and even Peruvian. While the theological manuscripts are arranged by traditional genres, the other sections are arranged chronologically, an indication of the new interest in the book as material object.In very good condition and wholly untrimmed.

      1742. "Defective" Jurisprudence Muratori, Lodovico Antonio [1672-1750]. Dei Difetti della Giurisprudenza. Venice: Presso Giambatista Pasquali, 1742. [viii], 184 pp. Folio (13-1/4" x 9").

Muratori was a notable Italian legal reformer. Trained as an attorney, he was the duke of Modena's librarian and a prolific scholar. It went through four more editions in the eighteenth century, the last in 1794, and was reissued a few more times in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

        AN IMPARTIAL ACCOUNT OF THE LATE EXPEDITION AGAINST ST. AUGUSTINE UNDER GENERAL OGLETHORPE. OCCASIONED BY THE SUPPRESSION OF THE REPORT, MADE BY A COMMITTEE OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN SOUTH-CAROLINA...WITH AN EXACT PLAN OF THE TOWN, CASTLE AND HARBOR OF ST. AUGUSTINE AND THE ADJACENT COAST OF FLORIDA; SHEWING THE DISPOSITION OF OUR FORCES ON THAT ENTERPRIZE

      London, 1742. Modern crushed red morocco, spine gilt. Bookplate on rear pastedown. Final leaf trimmed a bit close in the upper margin, skimming the page numbers. Near fine. First and only edition, and a primary account of the English incursion into Florida against the Spanish at St. Augustine. The unsuccessful siege was led by General James Oglethorpe, one of the founders of Georgia. "During the War of Jenkins' Ear, 1739-43, an expedition under General Oglethorpe seized two Spanish forts on the St. John's River early in 1740, and made an unsuccessful attempt to capture St. Augustine. In 1742 Oglethorpe turned back an invasion into Georgia of a large force of Spaniards, and the next year made another unsuccessful invasion of Florida. The failure of the 1740 expedition caused much ill feeling in South Carolina against Oglethorpe, and this anonymous ACCOUNT, erroneously ascribed...to Oglethorpe, is in fact a bitter criticism of him for mishandling the forces from South Carolina" - Streeter. The author, in fact, has been identified as James Killpatrick, a Charleston doctor and an officer who served under Oglethorpe. Killpatrick quotes letters from Oglethorpe to the Carolina authorities in 1739 and 1740 asking for assistance in the expedition and gives a highly detailed account of the course of events from the arrival of the joint forces at the mouth of St. John's River (May 9, 1741) to the raising of the siege on July 5. The two maps (which Streeter calls "detailed and excellent") are a plan of the town, castle, and harbor of St. Augustine with the disposition of Oglethorpe's forces in 1740, and another showing the Florida coast from the mouth of the St. John's to Matanzas Inlet. Servies notes that some copies have a plate showing the town and castle of St. Augustine by Thomas Silver, which originally appeared in the GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE for July 1740. It seems that the view was not originally issued with this title but was inserted into some copies as they were published roughly contemporaneously. The Streeter and Siebert copies, for example, had no view, and Howes does not call for one. The Streeter copy realized $2200 (now at Yale) while the Siebert copy sold for $18,400 to a private collector. The publication of this text sparked a pamphlet war, directly answered by George Cadogan in 1743 in his THE SPANISH HIRELING DETECTED.

        [EIGHT EARLY MASSACHUSETTS TRACTS ON VARIOUS SUBJECTS, INCLUDING CURRENCY, MANUFACTURES, EARTHQUAKES, AND RELIGION]

      Boston, 1742. Half title in first five works. Contemporary calf, ornate blind-tooled border on covers, spine in seven compartments, 20th-century paper label with manuscript caption title. Covers bowed, rubbed, and scuffed. Spine cracked with one-inch chip at head, hinges worn. Old tape repair on verso of one half title. Occasional minute foxing. Later 18th-century ownership inscription on front free endpaper and later title. Despite pronounced wear to binding, this remains a superlative (and unusually ornate) example of mid-18th-century American bookbinding. In a half morocco and cloth box. An intriguing sammelband of early Boston imprints, the most important of which discuss early New England currency, paper money, and the famed Massachusetts earthquake of 1727. The pamphlets on paper money in the form of "manufactory bills" and the Vans attack on creating paper money backed by bullion in Massachusetts are by far the most important items here. The titles are: 1) Rogers, John: THE PERFECT AND UPRIGHT MAN CHARACTERIZ'D AND RECOMMENDED. A FUNERAL DISCOURSE OCCASIONED BY THE DEATH OF THE HONORABLE JOHN APPLETON.... Boston: J. Draper for D. Henchman, 1739. [2],24pp. Rogers uses the late Rev. Appleton as an example of the just life. Also included here is Nathaniel Rogers' THE CHARACTER, COMMENDATION, AND REWARD OF A FAITHFUL SERVANT OF CHRIST..., with a separate titlepage, though clearly produced as one publication. OCLC locates only seven copies. OCLC 1698386. EVANS 4418. NAIP w027599. 2) THE TESTIMONY AND ADVICE OF AN ASSEMBLY OF PASTORS OF CHURCHES IN NEW-ENGLAND AT A MEETING IN BOSTON, JULY 7, 1743.

[2],25pp. An extremely early treatise on paper money, written in the form of a letter from a merchant to a friend in the country, sometimes attributed to William Douglass, but now considered the work of Hugh Vans. The paper money debate was an on-going conversation in the colonies prior to the Revolution. As early as 1729, Benjamin Franklin published his MODEST ENQUIRY INTO THE NATURE AND NECESSITY OF A PAPER CURRENCY..., and in 1740, Douglass (better known for his medical tracts) and Vans each published similar works in Boston. In the present tract Vans condemns the proposed plan for two main reasons: the colony is unable to cover its current debts, and the fluctuating values of silver and gold make it unlikely the currency would bear value in an international market. Vans' tract is particularly notable for the detailed description he provides of the proposed scheme. A good account of the currency debate in colonial Massachusetts. OCLC locates five copies.

[Boston]: Printed for the Public Good, 1741. 28pp. The author's letter to a London merchant in response to a proposed plan to produce new "manufactory bills" describes these three fundamental pillars of the colonial economy: currency, industry, and trade. What led to the writing of this pamphlet was the founding of the Manufactory Company, an enterprise to manufacture textiles, begun in 1740, which had engendered arguments about interest rates, stocks, currency, and credit. The author responds to criticism that the paper currency in the colonies is "confused," and cites the circulation of New Hampshire and Rhode Island notes as evidence to the contrary. He continues by asserting that recognition of these legal tenders is essential to promote ongoing ship construction and other manufactures, and that to wait for bills to be used specifically to settle industrial debts is ridiculous. The overall thrust of his argument is that colonial currency must be validated in Great Britain and the colonies for manufactures to continue apace; no new manufactory bills are needed. This work was evidently missed by Rink, who does list two works (a broadside and a four-page pamphlet) relating to the Manufactory Company (see Rink 3264, 3265). Those 1740 pieces recorded by Rink are the earliest American publications listed relating to manufactures. OCLC locates only three copies. OCLC 17180513. KRESS 4566 (imperfect). EVANS 4739.

Some say, Before they were sensible of the Shock, they saw flashes of Light glance their Windows, and others observ'd their Dogs give a sudden bark, as when affrighted. But before they could look about them, to know the meaning of these things, they heard first a gentle murmur, like a small ruffling Wind, and then a more noisy Rumbling, as of Thunder at some Distance: which seem'd to approach nigher, and grew louder, till it roared terribly; and then we felt our Houses totter and reel, with the tremulous Motion and Heaving of the Earth, as if they would tumble down into Ruins. It's tho't the greatest Earthquake this Country ever knew...." Recent seismographic scholarship has focused much on early New England earthquakes in an effort to better predict their future occurrence. OCLC 11048419. EVANS 2874. NAIP w002453.

      - Florence, C. Albizzini, 1742. Folio (464 x 325mm). pp xxiii [including frontispiece], (1); ff. 126, with engraved frontispiece, portrait, 110 numbered full-page plates, 17 vignettes on section titles, 18 other vignettes and plates in text, 2 initials, main title and section titles in red and black. Early 19th century half calf, richly gilt decorated spine in 6 compartments (short split to joint of frontcover). A fine large uncut copy of the first edition of this beautiful shell book. Niccolo Gualtieri (1688-1744) was a professor at the University of Pisa and physician to Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany. The Duke was a keen collector and had a magnificent cabinet of shells including 360 species sent to him by Rumphius, and many of the duplicates were given to Gualtieri. The present work shows Gualtieri's collection and is one of the most curious and beautiful books on shells ever published. Many of the shells are depicted standing on their apices. Both engraving and typography is exceptional. The vignettes show marine scenes and corals. The engravings are by P.A. Pazzi after drawings by Giuseppe Menabuoni (1708 - after 1745).Gualtieri's collection is extant and can be found in the Museo Storia Naturale in Pisa. Many pages have a circular library stamp of Academie de Macon at the outer margin not affecting the illustration.Nissen ZBI, 1736. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Twelve new Designs of English Butterflies: Creatures whose Elegance and Variety of Beauty demand our Admiration .

      - London, B. Wilkes, 1742. Folio (410 x 310mm). 13 hand-coloured engraved plates including the dedication. Bound up with: WILKES, B. Directions for making a collection. (London n.d.). pp. 1. Later marbled boards. First edition, first issue. Lisney in his 'Bibliography of British Lepidoptera' gives an extensive description of the first, second issue and the second Bowles's edition. "There was no true title to the plates now known as the 'Twelve New Designs', although there was certainly a 'title-page' of sorts. There were actually thirteen engraved plates, the first being a dedication 'To the Worthy Members of the Aurelian Society,' describing in its text 'Twelve New Designs of English Butterflies' to follow, hence the commonly accepted name (even though moths as well as butterflies are depicted). Twelve plates with geometrical designs of numerous British Lepidoptera follow the dedication leaf, which is in itself a 'design' as it includes a floral rondo surrounded by larvae and foodplants" (Wilkinson, R.S. in his essay on Wilkes, preceeding the Classey reprint of 'Twelve new Designs').DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING A COLLECTION: Lisney 184. The second copy known, untill the present copy, the only copy known to have survived is the one in the British Museum (Natural History) (see Wilkinson p. 7). The heading of this folio broadsheet reads as follows: 'In order to oblige such Persons as may be desirous to make a Collection of Moths and Butterflies, though unacquainted with the Manner how, it is judged proper to lay down the following Directions.' The text is printed in two columns on one side of a single sheet. 'This folio broadsheet containing instructions to collectors was undoubtedly on sale at the same time as the 'Twelve new Designs of English Butterflies', but was at no time considered part of that work' (Lisney p. 123). '. the most momentous innovations mentioned in the 'Collecting Directions' is the use of the clap net, a design which would dominate British entomology for more than a hundred years' (Wilkinson p. 7).A fine copy with excellent colouring of the plates, except for some very slight discolouration of the paper due to faint dampstaining.Nissen ZBI, 4411 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Ownership signatures of Seth Parsons, Abigail Parsons and Daniel Dayton on endpapers. In a leather tipped brown cloth open end case. First American edition. x, 215 pp. 12mo. Daniel Henchman "was the most eminent and enterprising bookseller that appeared in Boston, or, indeed, in all British America before the year 1775" (Thomas, p. 196) He built the first paper mill in New England. Thomas claimed that Henchman published, some twenty years before Aitken, the "first Bible printed in America in the English language." Printed by Kneeland and Green, mainly for Henchman, but disguised with a London imprint "Printed by Mark Baskett, Printer to the King's Most Excellent Majesty" to avoid prosecution. "The Doctrine of the Law & Grace Unfolded" was first published in 1659, one of four pieces by Bunyan written before he was imprisoned for conducting a service outside of a church and for not being in episcopal orders.

Up until this point the study of shells etc., was considered a 'curiosity' - it was Dezallier D'Argenville that coined the classification.Antoine-Joseph Dezailler d'Argenville (1680-1765) was avocat to the Parlement de Paris and secretary to the king. He was a connoisseur of gardening and natural history in general and was called upon to edit or contribute more than six hundred entries in the Encyclopédie of Denis Diderot and Jean le Rond d'Alembert, which was published in parts from 1751. His interest in natural history resulted in two treatises, on shells and minerals, L'histoire naturelle éclaircie dans deux de ses parties principales, la lithologie et la conchyliologie. (Paris 1742) and La Conchyliologie, ou Traité sur la nature des coquillages 1757 etc. The connoisseurship of shells and their most colorful and fantastic form was a gentleman's occupation and a worthy inclusion in a cabinet de curiosités before it became a science under the Linnaean system of classification. Dezailler d'Argenville was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of London in March 1750.Nissen ZBI, 144

        Consecutive run of session laws from August 1734 through May 1742]

      William Parks, [Williamsburg 1742 - (12 7/8 x 8 1/8 inches). Caption titles, as issued. 1-51; 1-48; 1-52; 1-21; 1-2; 1-58pp. Expertly bound to style in full period calf, spine with raised bands ruled in blind, morocco lettering piece. A remarkable run of early Virginia imprints. An extraordinary run of the earliest Virginia imprints, the most extensive group of material to come on the market in perhaps a century. This remarkable volume contains six Assembly session laws published in Williamsburg between 1734 and 1742, from the press of Virginia's first printer, William Parks. The beginnings of printing in Virginia can be traced, in a sense, to 1682, when William Nuthead went to Jamestown with a press to print the acts of the Assembly; Governor Thomas Culpeper tossed him out, and Nuthead left without issuing a single publication. Culpeper's successor Francis Howard banned printing entirely, and it was fifty years before another attempt was made. In February 1728, William Parks, the official printer to the Maryland Assembly since 1726, seeking to expand his business, petitioned the Virginia Assembly for a similar position. Receiving the commission, Parks opened an office in Williamsburg in 1730. That year, he published what is generally credited as Virginia's first imprint: John Markland's Typographia: an ode to printing, a 15pp. paean to Sir William Gooch, the governor who had approved the invitation to Parks. This survives in a single copy, at the John Carter Brown Library. Indeed, the handful of early Virginia imprints prior to 1735 that are not laws only survive in unique copies. Parks moved to Williamsburg himself in 1731, although he would continue to maintain his Annapolis press until 1737. In 1733 he published the first locally printed collection of Virginia laws. The present imprints follow directly after that volume with new legislation issued over the next decade. He was certainly, with Benjamin Franklin, the most significant and enterprising printer in the American colonies south of Boston in the first half of the 18th century, prior to his death in 1750. During this time Parks sometimes quarreled with the Virginia House of Burgesses over fees and articles in his newspaper, but always retained the lucrative contract for printing the legislative materials of the colony. The present collection of session laws contains the fourth and final session of the 1727-1734 Assembly, all four sessions of the 1735-1740 Assembly and the first session of the 1742-1747 Assembly. The first of the above is significant, as it was "the first time the public and private acts of a session were printed in full" (Swem), the previous session laws including the titles of the private acts only. The acts within these sessions includes those addressing tobacco, duties on slaves, judicial matters, regulating liquor, for the encouragement of the College of William and Mary, dividing counties, relating to Native Americans, the raising of the militia for an expedition against the Spanish, among other matters. Of particular note is an act within the final session which establishes the town of Richmond on the falls of the James River. All early Virginia imprints are of great rarity. The legislative material was probably printed in editions of several hundred copies at the most. Berg locates eight to ten copies of each of the imprints listed here; in virtually all cases these copies have been held since before the First World War, and only a few individual imprints can be traced in sale records. The collection is comprised of: 1) [Virginia, General Assembly of 1727-1734, fourth session] Anno Regni Georgii II . At a General Assembly, begun and held at Williamsburg, the First Day of February, in the First Year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord George II . to the Twenty Second Day of August, 1734. Being the Fourth Session of this present General Assembly [caption title]. [Williamsburg: William Parks, 1734]. 51pp. Berg, Williamsburg Imprints 14 ("The economy, education, and public safety wer

        A JOURNEY TO THE WORLD UNDER-GROUND. BY NICHOLAS KLIMUS

      London: Printed for T. Astley ... and B. Collins, 1742.. [4],324pp. 12mo. Modern half-calf and marbled boards, gilt label, to style. A few trivial press and finger smudges, but a very good, crisp copy, neatly bound. First edition in English of Holberg's great utopian novel / imaginary voyage, first published anonymously, in Latin, in Leipzig in 1741. Holberg, an accomplished playwright, novelist, historian and essayist, is regarded as one of the primary literary figures of 18th century Danish and Norwegian letters. Indebted to mythology and Halley's late 17th century speculations, this popular novel in many ways established the now classic hollow earth literary convention popularized in both fiction and pseudoscience: Niels Klim falls down a shaft while exploring a cave and find himself in free space orbiting an inner sun. His travels in the inner world take him to a number of strange lands inhabited by intelligent animals, disparate cultures and, in one case, by animated musical instruments. Much in the manner of Swift, Holberg utilizes Klim's encounters to comment upon, or satirize, social, political, religious and economic topics in the actual world. Translations into German, French, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Russian, Hungarian and several other languages followed, with the text's eventual popularity rivaling Defoe and Swift and at least one imitation appeared in 1745. ESTC's collation does not call for a half-title. ESTC T91064. HOWGEGO H26. NEGLEY 576. LEWIS (PENN STATE), p.92.

        The History Of Nadir Shah, Formerly called Thamas Kuli Khan, The Present Emperor of Persia To which is prefix’d A short History of the Moghol Emperors…

      London: Printed by W.Strahan, for the Author; And sold by G.Strahan, and J.Brotherton, J.Oswald…, 1742., 1742. 8vo. pp. 1 p.l., vi, 234, [6]index & errata, 40. folding engraved frontis. & folding engraved map. woodcut ornaments & initials. later half calf, rebacked & recornered, endpapers preserved (map browned, occasional light foxing). First Edition of "the first book in English treating of Nãdir Shãh, ?'the scourge of God?'. It is important not only as a first-hand contribution to the history of contemporary events [Nãdir Shãh invaded India in 1737-38], but also for the number of original documents which it alone has preserved." (DNB) Fraser collected materials for his account during his first stay in India, 1730-40 (he returned as a factor for the East India Company, 1743-49). He managed to acquire some 200 manuscripts in the Persian, Arabic, and Sanskrit languages, a catalogue of which is appended here, with separate title (pp. 40). His collection of Sanskrit manuscripts was the first of that kind ever brought to Europe, although individual manuscripts had reached England and France even earlier. The entire collection eventually came to reside in the Bodleian Library at Oxford University.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.

Son texte, revu sur plusieurs manuscrits et sur l'édition princeps, comporte de nombreuses notes. Exemplaire en grand papier. Reliures (de l'époque, très légèrement postérieures) en plein maroquin bleu foncé signée Anguerrand, dos lisses ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés, ainsi que de pièces de titre, de tomaison, de date et de lieu de maroquin rouge. Triple filet doré et fleurettes en encadrement des plats. Large dentelle dorée en encadrement des contreplats. Toutes tranches dorées. Dos un peu passés et quelques frottements, sinon bel exemplaire. Intéressant détail qui retrace la vie de cet exemplaire : les dos ont été mis au goût du jour à la fin du XVIIIe siècle ; les pièces de titre, en maroquin rouge, ont été changées, certaines déplacées et les caissons, muets à l'origine, ont été surchargés de fer de cette même époque. Il semble bien être l'exemplaire qui a figuré au catalogue de la bibliothèque Lamoignon de 1791 (II, n°4292).
