        The Vale of Innocence: a Vision. Verses to an infant Daughter. And Sonnets on several Subjects .

      Printed and Sold by R. Loder; sold also by J. Johnson . London., Woodbridge 1785 - First editions of all three works, the first two very rare. Scots-born John Black (1753-1813) was perpetual curate of Butley in Suffolk and headmaster of Woodbridge Free School. All in all, these three works give an agreeable outline of the life of a civilised and well-connected country pastor in a prosperous part of England, with poems dedicated to various aristocrats, and also to 'The Ladies of the Book-Society, Woodbridge.' The dedication of another thanks the poet's friend 'Mrs. Pulham, on her drawing the author's portrait for this [the 1799 volume's] little publication.' The volume has an interesting later provenance. Alexander Gardyne had a substantial collection of early poetry, and at some point in the 1930s, or perhaps earlier, this volume found its way into the collection of Ralph Hodgson, poet and cartoonist. In 1933 Hodgson moved to Japan. He became guest lecturer in English literature at the Japanese University of Sendai and remained in Japan until 1938, latterly working on translations of the ancient Mannyoshui poems for the Japanese ministry of education, and presumably leaving this and other books behind when he left, with World War II imminent. The text contains a few pencil notations identified as in the hand of the poet Ralph Hodgson, and two loosely inserted folded leaves of manuscript quotations also identified (in English and Japanese) as in Hodgson's hand. pp. 28.[bound with:] The Conjunction of Jupiter and Venus, in Leo; on the 29th. of September, 1801. A Happy Prelude to a propitious Peace. A Poem. Mercury's Apology for the Curate's Blunder, An Impromptu; Addressed to the Right Hon. the Earl of Yarmouth.And other poetical Pieces .

        Amsterdam , Het IJ, Pampus - Matthias de Sallieth naar Abraham Storck, 1785-1791.

      ?Gezicht van het Y en Pampus?Kopergravure vervaardigd 1785/1791 door Matthias de Sallieth naar een tekening van Carel Frederik Bendorp ( 1736 - 1814) die op zijn beurt een schilderij van Abraham Storck kopieerde. Afm. (plaatrand): 32,9 ? 40,6 cm.Fraai gezicht gezicht over het IJ en Pampus, de door slib verondiepte geul gelegen aan de monding van het IJ ten oosten van Amsterdam en ten noorden van Muiden. (Dus niet te verwarren met het 19de-eeuwse forteiland Pampus.)Ten tijde van de VOC konden de schepen, zwaarbeladen door de handelswaar vanuit de Oost, als ze bijna thuis waren de ondiepe vaargeul niet makkelijk passeren. Vaak moest men op de vloed wachten om de haven van Amsterdam te kunnen bereiken.Na het afmeren kregen matrozen hun gage en verspilden het veelal in de dagen daarna aan drank en vrouwen. Dan gingen ze naar huis, net zo berooid als ze voor de reis waren. Matrozen kwamen veelal uit de provincie. Wanneer er weer ronselaars van de VOC in de dorpen kwamen, dan zeiden de moeders van de aanstaande matrozen: ?Niet doen, dat levert niets op.? Die ontmoediging was slecht voor de handel, want als er geen matrozen waren, dan konden de schepen niet bemand worden.De Heren van de VOC bedachten daarop een truc. Als de schepen voor de rede van Pampus lagen kregen ze water, eten en zeep. Vervolgens werd er een bordeel afgehuurd. De dames van het bordeel werden samen met een forse hoeveelheid drank aan boord gebracht. Na drie dagen waren de schepelingen totaal uitgeraasd en uitgeput. Daarna ging het schip naar de haven, meerde af, de matrozen kregen hun gage en gingen naar huis. Nu gingen ze met geld naar huis en met stoere verhalen. Hierdoor was het eenvoudiger om matrozen te werven. De term ?voor pampus liggen? in de zin van dronken zijn, komt van het hier beschreven gebruik.Prijs: ?625,-.

        An archive of 14 receipts or ledger pages for household expenses, mostly unsigned.

      Tonnere, 1779-1785. - Various formats. Altogether 16 ff. Including 7 autograph documents on large Folio sheets signed, partly with initials, and partly in the third person within the text, varying between "Mlle la ch're D'Eon," "La ch're D'Eon," and "D.". Ledger pages or receipts, listing prices paid or owed for firewood, lumber, food, clothing and other items, documenting the daily life of an 18th century crossdresser. - Éon de Beaumont was a French transsexual political adventurer, secret agent of Louis XV in Russia (1755), then minister to England. The term "eonism" denoting the tendency to adopt the costume and manners of the opposite sex, is derived from his name. Despite d'Éon's wearing a dragoon's uniform all the time, there were rumors that he was actually a woman, and a betting pool was started on the London Stock Exchange about his true sex. D'Éon finally claimed to be physically not a man, but a woman, and demanded recognition by the government as such. King Louis XVI and his court complied, but demanded that d'Éon dress appropriately and wear women's clothing. D'Éon agreed, especially when the king granted him funds for a new wardrobe. Overall, Charles d’Éon spent his first 49 years as a man, and his last 33 years as a woman. Upon death, a council of physicians discovered that d'Éon's body was anatomically male.

Arabic manuscript prayerbook written in black ink in a neat naskh Arabic hand, with well over 50 headings in red, the opening of the main text decorated with a floral design, 2 full-page perspective views in coloured inks showing the Masjid al-Haram (the Great Mosque) in Mecca, with the Ka'ba in its central plaza, and the al-Masjid an-Nabawi (the Prophet's Mosque) in Medina, about 25 calligraphic roundels, the Prophet's handprint and footprint, several calligraphic seals, 4 pages each with 3 flags, about 20 other pages with pictorial or semi-pictorial images with calligraphic inscriptions, numerous other inscriptions in circular borders and nearly every page in a rectangular border. Richly gold-tooled, tanned sheepskin(?) (ca. 1815?) with a flap that wraps around the fore-edge, rebacked. A richly decorated Islamic prayerbook in Arabic with extensive pictorial, semi-pictorial and floral decoration and calligraphic roundels, executed in the Ottoman Empire in 1199 AH (1784/85 AD). The Dala'il al-khayrat (sometimes translated as Proofs of good deeds or Waymarks of benefits) is a prayerbook invoking peace and blessings for the prophet Muhammad. It was written and compiled by Muhammad ibn Sulaiman al-Jazuli (807-870 AH or 1404/05-1465 AD), a Moroccan scholar in the mystical Islamic Sufi movement, and became one of the most popular Islamic prayerbooks, especially in the Ottoman Empire. al-Jazuli's inspiration for the prayerbook is said to have come before he left Fez for forty years in Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem, but he finalized it in Fez in the last years of his life. Some of the illustrations traditionally included in the book, including the views of the Mecca and Medina mosques, were added after his death. Many of the "illustrations" comprise texts written within a gold outline with the form of a vase, long-necked bottle, pair of trees, sword, etc., the whole in a rectangular border with a coloured background. A few are more pictorial, showing the Ka'ba, a dallah (coffee pot) and other items. - With a chip in the first leaf, just touching the text, a couple leaves torn along the border and many bifolia separated at the gutter fold, some water damage at the foot of the gutter margin and a few minor stains and tears (some repaired). The text and pictorial imagery in most leaves nevertheless remains in very good condition. The binding shows some wear, mostly at the extremities, but the rest of the tooling remains in good condition. An elaborately decorated and illustrated Islamic manuscript prayerbook from the 18th-century Ottoman Empire. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Early Reprint. Full Calf. Near Fine+. First Quarto Edition (sixth overall) of this "most amazing, enduring and endearing one-man feat in the field of lexicography" (PMM), printed from Dr. Johnson's own corrected copy of the fourth folio edition, of 1773. Collated and complete in two thick quarto volumes. Unpaginated, comprising half title (vol. I), two title pages (one for each volume), preface, history, grammar, advertisement, dictionary (printed in three columns), with frontispiece portrait of Johnson engraved by Thomas Cook after a painting by Joshua Reynolds. Contemporary tree calf covers bordered with gilt roll, flat spines elaborately gilt in six compartments divided by gilt rolls, twin leather lettering pieces gilt (one red, one black on each spine), original marbled endpapers with copper-engraved book plate of one of the Earls and Marquises of Northampton) to both front paste downs. A crisp, clean, finely bound example of this classic work, free of foxing, with only occasional stains to text pages and dust-spotted fore-edges. Alston, V 186. PMM 201 (for first edition). Sawyer & Darton, pp. 346-49. Lowdnes 1217. Grolier Johnson 20 (for first edition). Grolier English 100, 50 (for first edition). Courtney, pp. 30-68 (for an exhaustive review and commentary). In 1746, "there arrived the most significant career opportunity of Johnson's entire life. A group of booksellers headed by Robert Dodsley perceived the need for a new English dictionary to replace the semi-standard Dictionarium Britannicum of Nathan Bailey (1730). They found a receptive ear in Johnson, who had pondered for many years on the absence of an English equivalent to the great continental glossaries sponsored by public bodies and academies. . . . . Ultimately the work appeared in two folio volumes on 15 April 1755, garnished with preliminary matter, including a preface of extraordinary dignity and eloquence. The Dictionary left an immense mark on its age. It soon became recognized as a work of classical standing, and in spite of some minor blemishes it has never lost its historical importance as the first great endeavour of its kind." (ODNB) According to Noah Webster, "Johnson's writings had, in philology, the effect which Newton's discoveries had in mathematics." (PMM) N. B.

        Plano geometrico de la Imperial Noble y Leal Ciudad de Mexico, teniendo por extreme la zanxa y garitas del resguardo de la Real Aduana

      Arguably amongst the most magnificent maps of Mexico City, containing cartographical information of privileged access, and to our knowledge, the first Spanish printed map of such dimensions of the Viceroyalty´s Capital City. Tomas Lopez de Vargas Machuca (1731-1802) was a Spanish publisher and the leading cartographer of the age. He studied with Jean-Baptiste Bouguignon d'Anville in Paris, before returning to his native Madrid in 1760, when he established the only independent cartographic publishing house in Spain in 1760. He began making maps for the Bourbon kings and became Royal Geographer to King Carlos III in 1780. He was even authorised to create a geographic agency for the secretary of state in 1795. Lopez´ map follows the one made by Ignacio de Castera Obiedo y Peralta (Mexico 1750 - 1811), a Mexican architect and cartographer. Castera gained the favour of Archibishop Nuñez Haro de Peralta and Viceroy Guemes Pacheco, which allowed him to participate in the construction of important buildings in the City of Mexico. Lopez had already published a 1758 map of Mexico City, a plain orthogonal plan of the type created by military engineers. His work was typical of late eighteenth century Spanish attempts to assert control of their empire through cartography. Castera´s maps, however, appear to have never been published, until this edition, by Lopez. Cartographically, it resembles greatly the "Plano Ignografico de la Nobilisima Ciudad de Mexico, hecho en el año 1776 por D. Ignacio Castera, Mro. De Arquitectura y Agrimensor de tierras, aguas y minas por S. M. y aumentado en el de 1778", thus, we are made aware of at least two maps made within 1776 and 1778 (El criollo en su reflejo, Fomento Cultura Grupo Salinas, pp. 46). Castera´s map reflects the political, social and urban modifications suffered by the city of Mexico as a result of the reforms carried out by the Borbon kings in the second half of the 18th century. In this sense, it is the first printed map to show "modern" Mexico. Dennis Reinhartz argued that Spain's reluctance at the beginning of the eighteenth century to make public claims on their American territories via maps and sparse settlements "encouraged Spain's European rivals, France and Britain, to engage in real and cartographic 'filibustering' campaigns in the region". Although Castera and Lopes' map supposedly presents a detached view, it is still fraught with ideology. Mexico City was a vital part of New Spain, the capital of the viceroyalty, the seat of the bishopric and a trading centre with links to both Asia and Europe. Carlos III, king at the time this map was made, was determined that the reforms he initiated in Spain should be copied throughout the Spanish empire, and that Spanish colonial possessions should reflect European cultural values. Protestant critics dismissed Spain's empire as an "intellectual backwater". This plan counters these claims by displaying it in the style of a European city view - well-planned, geometric, modern - and addresses contemporary thought which equated the physical order of a state with its political efficacy. It reflects the political, social and urban modifications resulting from the reforms carried out by the Bourbon kings in the second half of the eighteenth century. In this sense, it is the first printed map to show "modern" Mexico. To the lower right of the plan is a key listing districts, monastic houses, convents, non-religious buildings, public buildings, and canals. The plan clearly shows the Alameda Park, the Zócalo (Plaza Mayor), and the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary.  To the lower left is a note stating that the street names were taken from a manuscript map of the city provided by Don Francisco Xavier Machado y Fiesco. The plan is dedicated to Don Francisco Leandro de Viana, the Count of Tepa (1730-1804). Viana was active in the colonial administration of the Spanish Empire, and made his reputation protecting the interest of natives in the Philippines. He would eventually settle in Mexico after marrying into the Mexican nobility and was eventually appointed as Alcalde de Crimen (criminal judge) and Oidor (royal judge) there, two of the highest-ranking judicial positions that could be held in the Spanish empire. JCB doesn´t own a copy of the map, referencing a later impression on wove paper. The map is very rare, we are only able to trace seven extant examples of the map (Berkley; British Library; N.Y.P.L; University of Illinois; Harvard; Biblioteca Nacional, Madrid; Laval, Canada). We have not been able to trace the map as having sold at auction. López Gómez, and Antonio Porto Manso, Carmen, ['Cartography of the eighteenth century.
