        THE HISTORY OF THE FIRST DISCOVERY AND SETTLEMENT OF VIRGINIA: BEING AN ESSAY TOWARDS A GENERAL HISTORY OF THIS COLONY. [bound with:] AN APPENDIX TO THE FIRST PART OF THE HISTORY OF VIRGINIA

      Williamsburg, 1747. Contemporary speckled calf, red gilt morocco label, ornate gilt spine in six compartments, label renewed. Minor shelf wear, front board nearly detached. Faint toning. Signature X printed on paper that has more foxing than the other signatures, as usual. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. First edition, third issue of Stith's book, this issue possibly published as late as 1753. Stith's text is one of the first American histories to be written and printed in the British colonies, and the first such in Virginia. Stith, who was well connected in the colony, had access to numerous important sources, including the library of William Byrd of Westover, the personal recollections of Sir John Randolph, county court books, the official records of the London Company, and John Smith's seminal GENERALL HISTORIE OF VIRGINIA. Printing began in Virginia when William Parks established his press in Williamsburg in 1730. This is one of the earliest accessible Virginia imprints, and one of the most interesting. An appealing copy of a landmark book.

        BAJA CALIFORNIA / SONORA, MEXICO: SENO DE CALIFORNIA, Y SU COSTA ORIENTAL NUEVAMENTE DESCUBIERTA, Y REGISTRADA DESDE EL CABO DE LAS VIRGENAS, HASTA SU TERMINO, QUE ES EL RIO COLORADO AÑO 1747.

      - This rare and highly important map depicts by the Croatian Jesuit explorer Ferdinand Konš?ak (Fernando Consag) was instrumental in definitively disproving the long-standing myth that California was an island, and rather that Baja California was a peninsula. The map focuses on the northern part of the Sea of Cortés, which lies between Baja California and the Sonora region of the Mexican mainland. The map clearly shows the Colorado River entering the head of the sea, with the California peninsula labelled as the ‘Parte Septentrional de Californias,’ shown as being attached to the North American mainland. The Baja region is noted as the ‘Nacion de los Cochimes’ (the home of the Cochimí Native nation), while Sonora is ‘Pimeria,’ the land of the Pima Native nation. Several Jesuit missions dot the Baja region, including the town of San Ignacio (founded in 1728), in the southwest, Konš?ak’s home base. Numerous geographical features are labelled, most notably the Tres Vírgenes volcanoes, near San Ignacio, the 1746 eruption of which was witnessed by Konš?ak. Ferdinand Konš?ak & Proving California’s Peninsularity Since the 1620s, many maps depicted the widely believed geographic misconception that California was an island and that the Sea of Cortés was the southern part of a great strait that separated California from the North American mainland, with its northern opening being the Strait of Juan de Fuca. In the late 17th Century, Jesuit missionaries arrived the Sonora and Baja California regions. Deeply interested in geography, the Jesuits progressively explored and mapped the region. Padre Eusebio Kino, based on his explorations from 1698 to 1701, asserted that Baja California was a peninsula. His map supporting this point was first published in Paris in 1705, whereupon the notion of California’s peninsularity was adopted by many important mapmakers, notably Guillaume de L’Isle, the royal cartographer to Louis XIV. However, Kino never actually traversed the head of the Sea of Cortés, he merely surmised that a land connection between California and the mainland existed, based on his travels very near the sea’s head. Accordingly, many considered his narrative to be vague and some doubted his key assertion. The question of whether or not California was an island was far from settled. Enter Ferdinand Konš?ak (1703-59), popularly known as Fernando Consag, an enterprising Jesuit explorer and mapmaker. He was born in Varaždin, Croatia and was admitted to the Jesuit order at a young age. He received an excellent education in Leoden and Graz, Styria, before lecturing at the Jesuit academy in Zagreb, and later in Budapest. In 1729, he headed for Spain in order to train to become a missionary in the New World. In 1732, he was dispatched to the Jesuit missions in Baja California, where he would spend the rest of his days. Konš?ak adapted well to his new environment, fluently mastering Cochimí dialects and energetically strengthening the mission system in the region. He rose rapidly through the ranks of the Order, becoming head of the San Ignacio mission in 1748 and the superior of all of the Baja missions in 1758. His advanced training in mathematics supported his natural talent for reconnoitring the landscape, and he became a skilled cartographer. In June and July 1746, he mounted an expedition to definitively prove Kino’s assertion that Baja was a peninsula. He sailed up to the head of Sea of Cortés and traversed the mouth of the Colorado River, so empirically confirming Kino’s assumption. Upon his return to San Ignacio, he drew a manuscript map, which is the antecedent of the present map, along with a report, which was dispatched to Rome, and then on to Madrid. To all but a few oddball holdouts, Konš?ak had proven the case. In 1747, King Ferdinand VII of Spain issued a decree that formally declared California to be a peninsula, and with it the beloved myth of ‘California as an Island’ was legally dead. The present map represents the first prin

        AN EXHORTATION TO THE INHABITANTS OF THE PROVINCE OF SOUTH-CAROLINA, TO BRING THEIR DEEDS TO THE LIGHT OF CHRIST, IN THEIR OWN CONSCIENCES; IN WHICH IS INSERTED SOME ACCOUNT OF THE AUTHOR'S EXPERIENCE IN THE IMPORTANT BUSINESS OF RELIGION

      Philadelphia: Printed by William Bradford, (1747). First edition. 8vo. 158 pp. With a contemporary inscription "Hannah Richardson / her book the gift of / William Brown of Philadelphia" on the verso of the title page. Hume (1702-1774) was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, among the well-to-do, but spent the last three decades of her life proselytizing as a Quaker, in Charleston, London, and Philadelphia, following her conversion from the Anglican Church in 1738. "Among Quaker women of her day, Sophia Hume had an extraordinary knowledge of arts, literature, and theology, to some extent the product of her years as an Anglican. Although conversion curbed and guided her intellectual pursuits within limits approved by Quakers, she yet found it hard to justify erudition by a woman, and harder to justify her public life, by her own principles. The result was a paradoxical career: as a minister and writer she upheld the traditional view that woman should lead a secluded life devoted to home and church, as a Quaker bluestocking she expounded scripture and culled quotations from ancient and modern Christian writers to defend her sect" (Notable American Women).

      sumptibus ex typis Georgii Ottonis, typogr. Ducal. Priv., Coburg 1747 - 4to (198 x 155 mm). [24] 183 [1] pp. Signatures: a-c4 A-Z4, 108 leaves. Errata on final page. Woodcut headpieces, woodcuts of three forms of tree growth on p. 169. Recent marbled boards, spine with gilt lettering piece, new endpapers. Text only little browned, very minor faint spotting. Provenance: library of Walter Pagel. A fine, clean and unmarked copy. ---- Dibner 23; Evans 82; Norman 1193; Pritzel 4524. - THE VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of this collection, inluding Jungius, Doxoscopiae physicae minores (first edition 1662) and Isagogae phytoscopia, first printed in Praecipuae Opiniones Physicae (1679); and Giuseppe degli Aromatari's Epistola de generatione plantarum ex seminibus first printed in his Disputatio de rabie contagiosa (1625). This collection reprints Jungius' seminal works in the history of botany. Jungius gave botany much of its present nomenclature and first clearly divided the subject into morphology, physiology and ecology. Linnaeus based his system of nomenclature on Jungius' work, via Ray's Historia plantarum (1686-1704). Accused of heresy, most of his writings were only published after his death. 'Some few treatises were published by his pupils, among them one entitled Isagoge phytoscopica (Handbook of Botanical Study). This work, comprising a volume of 46 quarto pages, must be regarded as one of the pioneering works in botany. It gives a concentrated account of the theory of botany, under the obvious influence of Cesalpino's, but without the latter's profitless Aristotelian speculations. The whole exposition, with its concise, vigorous sentences and its analyses of different parts of the plant drawn up in tabular form, is more reminiscent of Linnaeus' work than that of any other of the early botanists. Linnaeus, in fact, mentions Jung as his precursor as far as the drawing up of rules for the description of flowers is concerned and actually took up the characteristic description of plant-organs at the point where Jung had finished and certainly brought it up to a far higher standard.' (Nordenskiöld pp. 194-95). The edition also includes Giuseppe degli Aromatari's letter on the germination of plants from seeds. Jungius' published works were based on transcripts of lectures, edited shortly after his death and annotated by his students Martin Fogel and Johann Vaget. Presumably the rarity of the earlier publications meant that McLean Evans could only obtain the Opuscula to represent Jungius' 'epochal achievement', and Dibner as his 'herald'.

        Principes du Droit Naturel.

      Geneve, Barrillot & Fils, 1747. 4to. Contemporary full vellum with gilt title-label to spine. Binding a bit soiled, but overall nice and tight. Title-page a bit toned, but otherwise very nice and clean. XXIV, 352 pp.. The uncommon first edition of Burlamaqui's groundbreaking main work - the only work that he himself published - which, with its vision of constitutionalism, constituted a major influence upon the American Founding Fathers. It is in the present work that the quest for happiness as a natural human right is articulated for the first time, a principle that Thomas Jefferson, directly influenced by the present work, later restated in the Declaration of Independence. Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui (1694-1748) was very well respected as an eminent legal and political theorist. He was born in Geneva, and at the age of 25, he was designated honorary professor of ethics and the law of nature at the university there. Before taking up the appointment, he travelled through France and England, where he made the acquaintance of the most eminent writers of the period. Upon his return, he began lecturing and soon gained a wide reputation for his eloquence and for the precision of his views. In his introduction, Nugent (in his 1748 translation of the work into English) said of Burlamaqui: "His singular beauty consists in the alliance he so carefully points out between ethics and jurisprudence, religion and politics, after the example of Plato and Tully, and the other illustrious masters of antiquity."Burlamaqui's lectures drew many foreign students to Geneva, and his natural law treatise, the only work that he published in his life-time, was translated into English, Latin, Dutch, Danish, Italian, and Spanish and was republished in more than sixty different editions. The English translation became a standard textbook both at Cambridge and at the foremost American colleges. Burlamaqui's work was well known by the Founding Fathers, and his writings exerted considerable influence on the American constitutional system. Burlamaqui's work also exercised considerable influence upon the likes of Rousseau and Diderot

The anthology is considered one of the best editions of the so called ?Anthologia latina?, a collection of small anonymous latin poems. The first collected edition of them was edited by Scaliger in 1573. Petrus Burmann the younger (1714-78) was neveu of the older P. Burmann and also his pupil. He became professor at the Atheneum in Amsterdam in history and philology. This is his last publication with the name ?Junioris?, which he therefter changed to ?Secundus?.

        Philosophische Abhandlung von Gespenstern. Worinn zugleich kurtze Nachricht von dem Wustermarckischen Kobold gegeben wird.

      Berlin, Haude und Spener 1747.. 80 S. Rückenbroschur. Grässe, BMP 23. - Georg Wilhelm Wegner (1692-1765), Pfarrer in Germendorf und Nassenheide, berichtet nur kurz über die Aufsehen erregenden Vorkommnisse im Pfarrhaus von Wustermark, das angeblich von einem Poltergeist über Jahre heimgesucht wurde. Wegner argumentiert mit rationalistischen Begründungen und Erklärungen von Phänomen seinen Kampf gegen den Aberglauben. Unter dem Pseudonym Tharsander veröffentlichte Wegner zahlreiche aufklärerische Werke, das bekannteste ist wohl "Die Vampyren und schmatzende Todten".

        DIE BITTRE SUSE ODER DAS GESANG DER EINSAMEN TURTEL TAUBE, DER CHRISTLICHEN KIRCHEN HIER AUF ERDEN...[manuscript title]

      Ephrata, 1747. Small quarto. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Spine heavily worn, split in center. Later 19th- century ownership inscription on front fly leaf. Slight wear and foxing to some leaves, and some ink burn, resulting in splits to some leaves. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. A unique and spectacular manuscript hymnbook created by the religious community at Ephrata, Pennsylvania, founded by Johann Conrad Beissel. This manuscript is from the period when the community was at its zenith, and is an outstanding example of the Frakturschriften for which the Ephrata Cloister is known. It contains over 250 pages of manuscript music, some of it likely original compositions. The printed register at the end contains 375 hymn listings, and an additional fifteen pieces of music precede the main body of the work. Johann Conrad Beissel (1692-1768) was born in Germany and orphaned at an early age. A charismatic and engaging personality, he tried on several religious movements, and eventually emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1720 after being banished from his homeland for radical religious beliefs. Beissel spent part of the 1720s with the Dunkards in Germantown and Lancaster County before his controversial beliefs about celibacy and Sabbath-keeping caused a rift with his fellow congregants. He then established himself as a hermit on the banks of the Cocalico River, where he was eventually joined by other like-minded individuals who wished to follow his teachings, and so founded the Ephrata Cloister in 1732. "What began as a hermitage for a small group of devoted individuals grew into a thriving community of nearly 80 celibate members supported by an estimated 200 family members from the region at its zenith in the mid-18th century. During that period much of the activity surrounded the charismatic founder and leader, Conrad Beissel. His theology, a hybrid of pietism and mysticism, encouraged celibacy, Sabbath worship, Anabaptism, and the ascetic life, yet provided room for families, limited industry, and creative expression" - Ephrata website. "Both within and without Ephrata, Beissel aroused controversy. His opposition to the institution of marriage early divided his congregation, as did his refusal to tolerate the community's money-making industries. His adoption of the Jewish sabbath and work on Sunday violated provincial laws and aroused the opposition of civil officials. That women left their husbands and homes to be with Beissel produced their husbands' ever-lasting hostility and even provoked one to attack Beissel physically. Beissel's willingness to permit women to spend nights in his cabin and his initial housing of men and women in the same building led to rumors of sexual promiscuity that prompted a neighbor to try to set fire to the cloister" - ANB. The community became known for its self-composed a cappella music, Germanic calligraphy known as Frakturschriften, and the complete publishing center which included a paper mill, printing office, and book bindery. Printing at Ephrata began in 1745, the third geographical location of printing in Pennsylvania. In fact, the largest book printed in America before 1800, numbering more than 1,500 pages, was published at the Ephrata printing shop in 1748. The first printed hymnbook of the cloister was called the "Turtle-Taube (Turtle Dove)," and contained more than 400 of the community's hymns, most of which Beissel had written. It was issued in 1747, the same year as this manuscript. In addition to the press, the Cloister also had a scriptorium which produced beautiful manuscript hymnals and other works. Beissel composed many original hymns for the community, which then produced manuscript volumes containing both the words and, separately, the music. He is said to have composed more than 4,000 lines of poetry, almost all of it religious, some of it set to music also of his composition. "For the community's worship, he developed distinctive types of choral harmony and antiphonal singing, and he frequently required the members to sing in this style on late night walks around Ephrata" - ANB. Manuscript production at Ephrata was used as a form not only of book production, but also as a meditation and spiritual act. Beissel established a monastic style of living for the Cloister in 1735, three years after its founding, and the earliest output of the scriptorium dates to this time. Most of the fine manuscript work was likely done by the Sisters (the Cloister was segregated by gender), while the Brothers maintained the printing press. The scriptorium flourished during the 1740s and 1750s, declining near the end of that decade. The present manuscript was produced while the scriptorium was at the pinnacle of its output and handiwork. This volume, with its elaborate fraktur titlepage, was likely a presentation copy rather than a standard, everyday hymnbook. The Ephrata community produced virtually the only original hymn texts and tunes during the colonial era. It was meant to be used with the printed words from the 1747 edition of DAS GESANG DER EINSAMEN UND VERLASSENEN TURTEL-TAUBE.... A bearded face has been drawn in each of the two upper corners of the fraktur, a highly interesting and unusual feature of the work. It is inscribed on the front fly leaf with a later ownership inscription which reads, "Abm. Burger's Book / January 29, 1830," which is followed by a gift inscription: "A Present of a Music Book from / Abm. Burger / to / Elder Lucius Crandal / Plainfield / Essex County / N.J. / December 17th 1854." These lines were probably written by Abraham Berger (1795-1856), a member of the Snow Hill Congregation in Quincy, Pennsylvania, an offshoot of the Ephrata community located about ninety miles to the southwest. When Ephrata was in its decline in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Snow Hill was in its prime, and as a result, many of the books and manuscripts were transferred from Ephrata to Snow Hill. This would explain how and why Berger may have acquired the volume. The gift recipient, Lucius Crandall (1810-76), was an elder and minister in the Seventh Day Baptist Church, first at Plainfield, New Jersey, and later at congregations in Rhode Island and New York. The Ephrata Cloister congregation, following its incorporation in 1814, became known as the Seventh Day Baptists of Ephrata, also referred to as the German Seventh Day Baptists. While Ephrata had no official ties or affiliation to the Seventh Day Baptist Church with which Crandall was affiliated, the two denominations formed a close relationship. This was true to the extent that in the later 19th century, Crandall's denomination included the annual reports of the Ephrata and Snow Hill congregations in their own annual reports. Ministers and members would travel from Crandall's Seventh Day Baptist Church to the Cloisters at Ephrata for feast days and baptisms, etc., providing a link between the two men. The Winterthur Library and Museum in Delaware has a significant collection of these hymnals, as noted by Kari Main in her excellent 1997 article on the subject (she compares eight hymnals). Columbia University has half a dozen manuscript hymnals, as well, and further collections can be found at the Ephrata Cloister, The Free Library of Philadelphia, the Library of Congress, and the Hershey Museum. Many of these derive from the great Samuel Pennypacker collection, dispersed at auction in 1908. Such manuscript works are incredibly rare on the market today, and the present copy is an especially fine example of these remarkable manuscripts.

        A BILL IN THE CHANCERY OF NEW-JERSEY, AT THE SUIT OF JOHN EARL OF STAIR, AND OTHERS, PROPRIETORS OF THE EASTERN- DIVISION OF NEW-JERSEY; AGAINST BENJAMIN BOND, AND SOME OTHER PERSONS OF ELIZABETH-TOWN, DISTINGUISHED BY THE NAME OF THE CLINKER LOT RIGHT MEN. WITH THREE LARGE MAPS, DONE FROM COPPER-PLATES

      New York, 1747. Folio. Late 19th-century polished calf, spine and boards gilt, leather label. Heraldic bookplate on front pastedown, contemporary ownership inscription of Hendrick Remsen on front fly leaf. Occasional minor stains. Bound at the end is the March 7, 1747-48 issue of THE NEW-YORK GAZETTE (No. 268). A very good copy. This highly important work is of interest for a number of reasons: its primary author, James Alexander, achieved great fame as the lawyer of Peter Zenger; it contains some of the first maps engraved in America; it was seen through the press by Benjamin Franklin and his New York partner, James Parker; and it is a vital document in settling the long-standing land disputes of colonial New Jersey. Streeter calls it "one of the most remarkable documents of colonial times." The land disputes dealt with in this document had their origins in overlapping Crown grants made by Charles II, which came to a head in arguments over quitrents and surveys in the 1720s. James Alexander, who had been surveyor-general of New Jersey before becoming a lawyer and winning fame as the successful defender of Zenger, undertook on behalf of the Board of Proprietors of the Eastern Division of New Jersey to assemble the evidence for a Bill in Chancery to settle the matter. He assembled the material published here in the 1740s, arguing the proprietors' case with "great subtlety and complexity," according to Streeter. Alexander consulted Benjamin Franklin concerning publication, and the printing work of the letterpress was executed by James Parker of New York, a partner of Franklin. However, Franklin advised that proper map engraving could not be accomplished in Philadelphia or New York, and work on the three maps was farmed out to James Turner of Boston. The now-famed cartographer, Lewis Evans, drew the maps, the first showing North America from Cape Hatteras to Boston; the second showing early survey and boundary lines, Indian paths, and major roads; and the third showing surveys and purchases in East New Jersey. The maps were available to purchasers in both colored and uncolored format. Those present here are in the uncolored state. These are some of the earliest maps drawn and engraved in the colonies, and as such are of tremendous importance. Additional information on the history of A BILL IN THE CHANCERY... can be found in Joseph Felcone's bibliography, cited below.

        POLYMETIS: OR, AN ENQUIRY CONCERNING THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE WORKS OF THE ROMAN POETS, AND THE REMAINS OF THE ANTIENT ARTISTS BEING AN ATTEMPT TO ILLUSTRATE THEM MUTUALLY FROM ONE ANOTHER

      London: Printed for R. Dodsley, 1747.. xii,361pp. plus forty-one copperplate engravings by Boitard (some double- spread). Folio. Engraved portrait after Vertue. Full contemporary mottled calf, handsomely rebacked and recornered to style, gilt label. Engraved tail pieces. Some minor edgewear to boards, foxing to endsheets and some of the plates, otherwise a crisp, very good copy. First edition of this major work by Pope's friend and promoter, a treatise on classical mythology as illustrated by ancient works of art and Latin writers. "His collections for the book were commenced in 1732 under the title of ?'Noctes Florentinæ.?' and, although severely criticised for its total neglect of Greek authors, brought its author £1,500. A fourth edition appeared in 1777, and an abridgment in 1802. Like the ?'Essay on the Odyssey,?' it is in the form of dialogue. Although inadequate from the first, and long ago superseded, it remains an agreeable book, owing to the urbanity of its old- fashioned scholarship, the justice of some incidental observations, and its affluent stores of quotation; and, as an intellectual if heterogeneous banquet, may be compared with the ?'Deipnosophists?' of Athenæus. Gibbon speaks of its ?'taste and learning.?' ?'Polymetis?' remained Spence's only considerable contribution to classical scholarship..."- DNB NCBEL II:1748. ESTC T133753

Er war ein enger Freund William Hogarths (1697 - 1764) und Schüler des berühmten französischen Kupferstechers Bernard Picart (1673 - 1733). Er war Träger des "Bluemantle" des College of Arms von 1743 - 1747. Um 1735 gestaltete er eine Bilderserie von zehn Motiven, welche die Seeschlacht gegen die Spanische Armada zeigen, für das Britische Parlament aus. Das dazugehörige Werk "The Tapestry Hangings of the House of Lords" erschien 1739 in London. Seine großartige Arbeit wurde durch einen "Act of Parliament" festgehalten und seine lebenslangen Bezüge gesichert. Zur Vervollständigung der Bilderserie im Parlament fertigte er fünf weitere großformatige Kupferstiche an. John Pine (1690 - 1756) was admired in Britain as the foremost heraldic and decorative engraver of his generation. He was a close friend of William Hogarth (1697 - 1764) and a scholar the famous French engraver Bernard Picart (1673 - 1733). His first engravings exhibited the splendid ceremonial of the installation of the knights of the bath in 1725. These were followed by his admirable prints, ten in number, representing the tapestry hangings in the House of Lords, showing the fight against the Spanish Armada. These were so highly approved, that the Parliament passed an act to secure the emolument arising from their publication to him. He engraved five other plates of the same size, to accompany them, being/Diese zeigen: 1. "A Plan of the House of Peers; another of the House of Commons A View of the Creation of Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, by Henry VIII. from a drawing in the College at Arms." 2.

Another View of the House of Peers, with Elizabeth on the throne, the Commons presenting their Speaker at t;he bar, from a painted print in the Cottonian Library. A copy of a beautiful Illumination of the Charter of Henry VI, to the Provost and College of Eton." 3. "The House of Lords, shewing his majesty on the throne, the Lords in their proper robes and seats, the Commons at the bar, and the Speaker addressing the throne." 4. "The House of Commons, shewing the Commons assembled in their House, the Speaker in his Chair, and sir Robert Walpole, the Minister, standing forth in his usual posture toward the chair." 5. "A View of the Court erected in Westminster Hall for the Tryal of Simon Lord Lovat." [Das seltene wie interessante Blatt leicht gebräunt und and den Rändern angestaubt.]

Some light browning, contemporary speckled calf, gilt amorial device to upper board, surface worming to upper board, intricate gilt compartments with gilt lettered labels to spine, sm. label to tail of spine with minor loss to leather.

        Georg Liegelsteiners wohlgezogener Zwerg-Baum oder Gründlicher Unterricht wie die Frantz-Bäume gewartet werden müssen, daß selbige bald und gute Früchte bringen, und damit grösserer Nutzen, als mit hohen Bäumen zu schaffen [...].

      Leipzig, Wolfgang Deer, 1747.. 8vo. (10), 143, (9) pp. With fine woodcut frontispiece showing saw and pruning knife, 1 engraved folding plate, and 30 woodcut text illustrations. Contemp. half calf and speckled boards, spine richly gilt with gilt lettered label.. The first western book on the cultivation of dwarf trees, or "bonsai". Georg Liegelsteiner was court gardener to the Archbishop of Salzburg in Austria, Count Franz Anton Harrach. His book on dwarf trees, although now largely forgotten and overlooked in botanical and horticultural literature, proved extraordinarily successful in its day, achieving six editions including the original edition of 1705. Liegelsteiner "writes about dwarfing trees so that they look like a very beautiful big tree, but only much smaller. He understands tree physiology like only a small minority of bonsai enthusiasts today. He explains in detail how to shorten roots and transplant trees often, how to shorten branches, how to correct a one-sided tree. He explains how to cut back a tree to a stump, let the new shoots grow, cut them back at strategic points, let the new shoots grown again and cut them back. It is exactly the 'Chinese' clip-and-grow technique. He makes drawings which explain the development of a dwarf tree in a way that could not be improved" (Walter Pall, Dwarf Trees of George Liegelsteiner, in: Bonsai Magazine 3 [2000]). The edition offered here is the final one, published after the death of its author, with a very interesting new preface which attempts to sketch a history of dwarf trees in Europe. It suggests that the art of growing Bonsai trees came to Versailles in the late 17th century. One of the Versailles gardeners, Grottendorf, settled in Berlin and experimented more on it. Eventually he was appointed head gardener to the wealthy merchant and Councillor Georg Bose's garden, the "Kleinbosischer Garten", in Leipzig. Liegelsteiner received advice from Grottendorf about the art of growing dwarf trees. - OCLC locates the 2 copies in US: Berkeley and National Agriculture Library; also: Berkeley (1703 ed.); Delaware, Agricult.
