That latter year he was alao elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1675 he edited John Wilkins's Principles of Natural Religion, completing what was left unfinished of it, and in 1682 his Sermons. Along with Burnet, Tillotson attended William Russell, Lord Russell on the scaffold in 1683. In 1684, he wrote a Discourse against Transubstantiation. He afterwards enjoyed the friendship of Lady Russell, and it was partly through her that he obtained so much influence with Princess Anne, who followed his advice in regard to the settlement of the crown on William of Orange. He possessed the special confidence of William and Mary, and was made clerk of the closet to the king in March 1689. It was chiefly through his advice that the king appointed an ecclesiastical commission for the reconciliation of the Dissenters. In August of this year he was appointed by the chapter of his cathedral to exercise the archiepiscopal jurisdiction of the province of Canterbury during the suspension of Sancroft. He was also about the same time named dean of St Paul's. Soon afterwards he was elected to succeed Sancroft; but accepted the promotion with extreme reluctance, and it was deferred from time to time, at his request, until April 1691. In 1693 he published four lectures on the Socinian controversy, partly to clear his own name from charges of sympathy with Socinianism in his previous associations with Thomas Firmin, Stephen Nye and others. His attempts to reform certain abuses of the Church, especially that of clerical non-residence, awakened much ill-will, and of this the Jacobites took advantage, pursuing him to the end of his life with insult and reproach. He died on 22 November 1694. For his manuscript sermons Tillotson's widow received 2500 guineas. Ralph Barker edited some 250 of them together with the "Rule of Faith" (1695-1704). In 1752 an edition appeared in 3 vols., with Life by Thomas Birch, compiled from Tillotson's original papers and letters. Various selections from his sermons and works have been published separately. AMS Press, New York, published a modern edition of his works in the 1980s. In his home town of Sowerby, a statue of Tillotson still exists in St. Peter's church and an avenue is named after him in the lower end of the town.

        Istoria Critica della Vita Civile

      Londra: Per Giogrio Woodfall..., 1752. FIRST EDITION. 4to, 294 x 231 mms., pp. 12, 311 [312 blank], 19th century half calf, marbled boards, neatly rebacked at some stage, title in gilt on spine. With the "Milton,/ Peterborough" book label on the top margin of the front paste-down end-paper. The subscribers include Mark Akenside, Earl of Chesterfield, Moses Mendez and two other members of his family, the dedicatee Charles Townshend, and Horace Walpole. Martinelli (1702 - 1785) came to England in 1748 and this was the first of three books that he published in England, and, as E. H. Thorne records, "made his reputation as a man of letters, and was reprinted several times both in England and in Italy. It consists of nineteen chapters each dealing with one aspect of la vita civile; aspects ranging from education and the duties of family life, through industry, art, and science, laws and methods of government, to la vita felice, and it ends - inevitably for a foreigner in eighteenth-century England - with a chapter 'della liberta.'" Among the good and the great that he met was Charles Burney, whose daughter, Fanny, recorded in 1771, "He has a most uncommon flow of wit, and with it the utmost bitterness of satire and raillery of ill nature. His vanity and self-conceit exceed every person's I ever saw; and far from endeavouring to conceal this weakness, he glories in it, and thinks he but does himself justice in esteeming himself the head of whatever company he is in, and (openly) manifesting that he does so. He is not satisfied with priding himself that he speaks to the Great with sincerity, he piques himself upon treating them with rudeness." E. H. Thorne, "Vincenzo Martinelli in England: 1748 - 1744," Italaian Studies (1956).

        An Account of Six Years Residence in Hudson's Bay from 1733 to 1736 and 1744 to 1747

      London: Payne and Bouquet. 1752. First Edition, complete. 8vo; (4), vi, 84pp; appendix 95, 3 foldouts, rebound in new quarter leather over marbled boards. Ex-library with faint 2 x 1" oval Lynn Free Public Library stamp on the title page, shelf numbers on verso, pp. 9 and 51 (appendix); pp. 9-34, 1" minor damp- staining at gutter base 1 ¾" damp-stain across gutter top descending at most ¼" into page, minor damage across base of p. 68, top edge slightly dampened from headbands in about 2". Otherwise a clean copy with all fold- outs, very good. & Robson&#39;s ACCOUNT OF SIX YEARS RESIDENCE is one of the very few publicly-printed eighteenth century descriptions of the Hudson&#39;s Bay area, making it an indispensable reference on the early history of the local. It takes on added importance as one of the very few contemporary descriptions of the region.& Joseph Robson&#39;s association with the Hudson&#39;s Bay Company, known as the HBC, began in 1733 with a three-year term as a stonemason. He returned to the region again in 1744, this time as the Surveyor and Supervisor of Buildings. His experiences with the HBC, however, left him disaffected. Upon his return to London, he wrote his ACCOUNT OF SIX YEARS RESIDENCE, which not only describes the geography of Hudson&#39;s Bay, but also decries the HBC&#39;s governance and argues for an end to their trade monopoly on the area. Robson&#39;s argument against the HBC is based on their limited propensity to explore and develop the region beyond their few already-established trading posts, something he felt would open up a new market to British trade.

Booth and his wife, Amelia, bearing comparison in temperament to Fielding and his wife, Charlotte, though the Fieldings&#39; circumstances where no where near as dire: The book is "set in and against a London of almost unrelieved squalor, corruption and violence" (OCEL)."The book sold extremely well, but was attacked by many, led by Richardson and Smollett, and Fielding made alterations to later editions. It was his own favorite among all his books" (OCEL).Rothschild 853. Cross III, pp. 321-22.

        L'orpheline angloise, ou histoire de Charlotte Summers, imitée de l'anglois de M. N**** par Mr. de la Place.

      chez Rollin fils,, "Londres et se trouve ? Paris" [probably printed in Paris] 1752 - A rare edition of the French translation of The history of Charlotte Summers; the first imitation of Henry Fielding's Tom Jones (1749) and translated by Fielding's own French translator. The work is occasionally, though not securely, attributed to Sarah Fielding. L'orpheline angloise had first appeared the previous year also with a (false) Londres imprint.

        Das Neue Testament unsers Herren und Heilandes Jesu Christi, nach der Deutschen Uebersetzung D. Martin Luthers

      16mo. Original full calf with both metal clasps present and fully functional. 537pp, (5pp). Front and rear flyleaves are fairly modern crude replacements; text block moderately age toned throughout, with mild occasional foxing. A tight and attractive second printing of this noted "New Testament" issue from the press of the well-known Philadelphia printer (1752-1837); the printing office and home in which this was printed still stands today; it was built in 1730, purchased by Billmeyer in 1789 and is supposedly the site from which George Washington directed his Continental Army forces in the Battle of Germantown. When Billmeyer and his father-in-law set up their Lutheran press in the 1780s, they acquired the surviving equipment of the reknowned Philadelphia printer Christopher Saur Jr., whose press the British had destroyed in 1777. The two small leather straps on this copy are old but not original, but all the brass clasp parts are present and attractive -- and it still clicks firmly closed. Despite mild wear, an exceptional copy.

        A View of Richmond Hill up the River. / Vue du Pais proche de la Riviere prise de la Montagne de Richmond

      London: Printed for & Sold by Robert Sayer at the Golden Buck opposite Fetter Lane Fleet Street, 1752. Engraved by Grignion after A. Heckel. Engraving with beautiful colour. In excellent condition. Framed in gold frame with a cream washline mount. Image size: 9 x 15 1/8 inches. Framed Size: 17 1/8 x 22 1/4 inches. A beautiful Vue d&#39;Optique of Richmond in Surry, England During the eighteenth century "vues d&#39;optique" or "perspective views" became extremely popular in England and Europe. Like other optical prints they capitalized on a connoisseur market eager for the latest novelty. English publishers such as John Bowles and Robert Sayer had great success with these optical views, which quickly developed into a collecting craze that swept through print shops on both sides of the Channel. "Vues d&#39;optiques" were specifically designed to create the illusion of perspective when viewed with a zograscope or perspective glass. These viewing devices used a series of reflecting mirrors to enhance the illusion of depth in the print, creating a veritable "view" for the onlooker. Typically these prints depicted city or landscape views, and were horizontal in format. They had roughly the same dimensions and were sold with heavy opaque colouring, so as to show the tints when viewed through the lens. In their heyday, optical prints were a technical revolution; they could be seen in almost every fashionable drawing room, and were enjoyed by the poorer classes in print shops or at traveling fairs. For a small fee the citizens of Europe and England could travel the world without leaving their village. The "vue d&#39;optique" was the first medium to bring the visible appearance of the wider world to a large European public. Ironically the artists and engravers who created these prints rarely had first hand knowledge of the scenes depicted, hence the views were often not as accurate as they were advertised to be. As a result of their constant handling, optical prints such as these are rare, especially in good condition. They are not only beautiful images but a fascinating glimpse into the history of printmaking. Clayton, The English Print 1688-1802, 140-141

Indicem Operum Exhibet Pagina, Quae Generalem Praefationem Excipit. Leiden: Apud Samuelam Luchtmans et Filios, 1752. [xvi], 571, [23] pp. Quarto (8" x 6"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine, small shelf label to foot of spine. Some shelfwear and light soiling, boards slightly bowed. Title page with copperplate vignette printed in red and black, woodcut initials. Interior notably fresh. A handsome copy of an important title. * Second, and final, edition. (The first edition was reissued in 1744.) Bynkershoek was a Dutch jurist who founded the positive school of international law, which held that usage and practice were more important than deductions drawn from natural law. He was also the first to propose the "three-mile limit" rule, which states that a nation may claim sovereignty over territorial waters to a distance of three miles from shore. Respected during his lifetime, his works are still consulted today. This collection of "minor works" actually contains two of his most important essays: "Dissertation de Domino Maris (Dissertation on the Sovereignty of the Sea)" and "De Foro Legatorum, Tam in Causa Civili, Quam Criminali (On the Jurisdiction Over Ambassadors in Both Civil and Criminal Cases)." The other five essays address aspects of Roman and Dutch law. Dekkers, Bibliotheca Belgica Juridica 15 (15).

        A French Wall Map of the Western Hemisphere

      Lyon, France 1752 - Map. L'Amerique Divisee en ses Pricipales Parties ou sont distingues les ud de autres les Estats, selon quils appartiennents presentement aux Differents Souverains De L'Europe . . . Par le Sr. Bailleul le jeune Geographe. Jean Louis Daudet, Lyon, France, 1752. Approximately 31 x 40 in., on original wooden rollers. Historical BackgroundJean Louis Daudet, a Lyonnais map and book seller, published this map of the known states and territories of the New World created by Gaspard Bailleul, a noted Parisian geographer, and his son. Unsurprisingly, the Caribbean, Eastern Seaboard, and California coasts are the most detailed and accurate, while the extremities north, south, and inland are less detailed, leading to some interesting cartographic fables. Bailleul's view of the Northwest Coast of America, includes the early appearance of the fabled "Mare de L'Ouest" (Sea of the West) and "Presque Isle de Nord Ouest" (Peninsula of the Northwest) in the areas of present-day British Columbia and points north.Perhaps most remarkable is the presence of huge continent, "Indes Meridionales," (Southern Indies) in the South Atlantic Ocean. Bailleul labels it"Decouverte par le Sr. Binot Paulmier en 1503." referring to a widely-held belief that Binot Paulmier, an early 16th century French explorer, was thought to have discovered "Terra Australis." In 1503, Paulmier sailed for the East Indies but was blown off course by a storm. In 1505, he returned claiming to have discovered a "great Austral land" that he also called "Indies Meridionale." Despite his claims, as well as renewed interest a century later, Paulmier had made landfall on the coast of Brazil. Bailleul's map provides one of the largest and most ambitious depictions of the unknown southern continent by French geographers and historians.Bordered by 30 vignettes illustrating scenes from European discovery and colonization such as the Conquests of Peru and Mexico, the Discovery of America, Taking Possession of New France, Native Peoples of the North, and many others. Bailleul also provides the journeys of early explorers and circumnavigators. One such site, Drake's Beach, ("P.te de Drack" ) in present-day northern California, is the location where of Sir Francis Drake overhauled his ships before crossing the Pacific Ocean on his circumnavigation.Condition Very good, original rollers, laid down on modern linen. Minor tears and abrasions.

      Glasgow: R. Urie. 1752. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. First separate printing of this work after its original 1595 edition; there were a number of editions of Sidney&#39;s &#39;The Countess of Pembroke&#39;s Arcadia&#39; published in the 17th Century that apparently had the Apology for Poetry appended to them, and in the early 18th Century there are a number of editions of the Works of Philip Sidney that include publication of the Defense, but as far as separate printings, there are none between 1595 and 1752. 12mo, later (early 20th C.) half maroon leather gilt and brown cloth boards, 106 pp., (2 pp). Very good. Considered one of the most important literary critical works of the English Renaissance, this was composed in approximately 1579 and published after Sidney&#39;s death. RARE.

        Remarks on the Life and Writings of Dr. Jonathan Swift, Dean of St. Patrick&#39;s Dublin,

      Dublin - George Faulkner, 1752 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Remarks on the Life and Writings of Dr. Jonathan Swift in a series of twenty-four letters from Swift&#39;s friend John Boyle to his son Hamilton Boyle. With a portrait of Swift to frontispiece and a small portrait of John, Earl of Orrery to half title. With a decorative head piece and capital to first page of text. First edition. John Boyle, 5th Earl of Cork and 5th Earl of Orrery, FRS (1707- 1762) was a writer and a friend of Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope and Samuel Johnson. He published a translation of the letters of Pliny the Younger in 1751, and Remarks on the Life and Writings of Jonathan Swift in the same year, and the Memoirs of Robert Carey, 1st Earl of Monmouth. His Letters from Italy was published in 1774 by J. Duncombe. Hamilton Boyle, 6th Earl of Cork and 6th Earl of Orrery (1729 - 1764) was the son of John Boyle, 5th Earl of Cork. He inherited the titles of 6th Earl of Cork and Orrery and 3rd Baron Boyle of Marston from his father in 1762. He served in the Parliament of Great Britain as MP for Warwick between 1751 and 1762, and represented Charleville in the Irish House of Commons between 1759 and 1761. Jonathan Swift (1667 - 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer, poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick&#39;s Cathedral, Dublin. He is remembered for works such as Gulliver&#39;s Travels, A Modest Proposal, A Journal to Stella, Drapier&#39;s Letters, The Battle of the Books, An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity, and A Tale of a Tub. Swift is probably the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry. Swift originally published all of his works under pseudonyms- such as Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, M. B. Drapier- or anonymously. He is also known for being a master of two styles of satire: the Horatian and Juvenalian styles. With previous owner&#39;s ink inscriptions to recto of frontispiece and rear blank and a further ink inscription to title page. Condition: Handsomely rebound in a quarter crushed morocco binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, in a lovely condition with minor shelfwear, mostly to spine and the odd mark to boards. Internally, firmly bound. With slight background foxing, occasional tidemarks and handling marks to pages. With slight evidence of past worming marginally to a small section to front. Overall: VERY GOOD.

Inocêncio II, 437 e 442: 'D. Francisco Manuel de Mello nasceu em 1611, de família mui nobre. Fez os seus estudos no colégio de Santo Antão com os jesuítas, e aí concluiu com grande distinção o curso de humanidades, tornando-se igualmente perito na filosofia e teologia. Aos 17 anos, por morte de seu pai, determinou seguir a vida militar, e passando a Castela fez varias campanhas navais e terrestres, chegando ao posto de Mestre de Campo, e servindo como tal nas guerras de Flandres e Catalunha. Culpado na morte de um indivíduo que apareceu assassinado, teve de jazer nove anos sucessivos nas prisões da torre de Belém, e da torre Velha. Não foram bastantes as diligências, que durante este tempo empregou para justificar-se do crime que lhe assacavam, chegando até a interessar em seu favor el-rei Luís XIII de França, que escreveu ao de Portugal uma carta, datada de 6 de Novembro de 1648, em termos assaz significativos, empenhando se pela liberdade do preso. A final depois de tão longos e penosos sofrimentos, foi-lhe ainda imposta a pena e degredo temporário para o Brasil, a qual cumpriu com paciente resignação. Voltando para a Europa, fez uma digressão á Itália, e assistiu em Roma durante alguns anos, começando aí em 1664 uma edição completa de suas obras, que por motivos ignorados não prosseguiu. Recolheu-se por último a Lisboa, onde faleceu em 1666. Há segunda edição das Cartas, feita em Lisboa 1752, 4.º Nela se fez substituir a carta última por outra mui curta, e destituída de todo interesse, com a qual se completou a centúria 5ª. Esta edição é feita em mau papel, e inferior em tudo à de Roma. Todavia, no mercado corre quase pelos mesmos preços, e eu paguei há anos por um exemplar 1:200 réis'. Location/localizacao: 7-A2-B-40

        The History of the Portuguese

      London,: A. Millar,, 1752.. Two volumes, octavo, contemporary mottled calf, joints cracked but the sides firmly held, spine labels renewed. First English edition. Osorio, often described as the "Portuguese Cicero", chronicled the reign of King Manuel I of Portugal (1495-1521), during which the sea route to India was discovered and the foundations of empire laid in Africa, Asia and America. The Latin original appeared in 1571. There were several foreign editions and translations, but the book did not appear in Portuguese itself until 1804. Osorio 'was born in Lisbon and studied at Salamanca, Paris, and Bologna. He became an official in India, private secretary to the infante Luis, held many high positions in the Church, and was eventually made Bishop of Silves, and later of Evora. The earl of Essex, during his raid into southern Portugal in 1596, captured Osorio's fine library, which he later presented to the Bodleian Library, where the books still remain, Osorio's book details the explorations, expeditions, and embassies under the reign of King Manuel of Portugal... included are the accomplishments of Cortereal, Vasco da Gama, Magellan, Cabral, and de Lemes...' (Hill catalogue).OsÛrio's history 'was the book about the discoveries most widely read in the rest of Europe... Outside of Portugal his reputation was made by his chronicle. Montaigne in 1588 referred to him as "the best Latin historian of our century"' (Lach II/2 pp. 139-45).Borba de Moraes, p. 638; Hill, 1270; Mendelssohn (1979) III, p. 604.

Translations by E. de Mauvillon of Ulloa's "Relacion historica del viage a la America Meridional," and of the companion work by Jorge Juan y Santacilia, entitled, "Observations astronomicas y physicas hechas de orden de S. Mag. en los reynos del Perù" (both published at Madrid in 1748); and of Garcilaso de la Vega's "Comentarios reales de los Incas." This copy with the Paris imprint, but Sabin argues it is just a change to the title page of the Arkste's & Merkus edition (Amsterdam et Leipzig) the same year. In 1735 the French Academy of Science requested permission to send an expedition to the equatorial regions of Spanish controlled South America in order for Charles de la Condamine and other French scientists to measure several degrees of meridian at the equator. By comparing their results with those obtained by a similar mission to Lapland, the Academie hoped to settle the controversy between the Newtonians and the Cartesians over whether the earth was flattened or elongated at the poles. Ulloa and Juan y Santacilia, Spain's best scientific officers, were sent along. Despite great difficulties, the expedition's geodetic measurements proved the validity of Newton's hypothesis. Antonio de Ulloa y de la Torre-Girault (1716 -1795) was later the first Spanish governor of Louisiana though he was deposed in 1768 after two years, during a creole revolt and also served as governor of Huancavelica in Peru.
