        Manuscript Account Book of Tristram Coffin, of Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts, 1718-1738

      12mo, 32 manuscript pp., unbound, no wrappers, entries written in ink, in a legible hand, dated 26 April 1718 to 10 April 1738; front leaf is inscribed: "Tristram His Book August the First Day 1721." There are a couple of other pages where the name "Tristram Coffin" is written a number of times, thus he is the person who appears to have kept this account book.The account book keeps record of monies paid out, accounts for foodstuffs like corn, corn for hogs, wheat, molasses, as well as household items including: a ladle, earthenware, lace, and things like calf skins, ox hides, planks, as well as wages paid out to hired hands. An entry for 7 March 1723 mentions "work done about the mill." There are nine different pages of accounts for "rum."A man named Nicholas Brock appears to have gone to work for Coffin in 1728 and 1729 and there are accounts for him for not only wages, but for also a hat, cloth for britches, cloth for shorts, for mending his clothes, etc. There is also mention of monies either being paid out, or collected for the rental of oxen for plowing for a day and a half.Various other accounts mention men by the name of John Tiler, Richard Schamenis, Isak Watson John Hobard, Jonathan Yong, John Carter, Tobias Hanson, Nat Hanson, Mark Giles, Joseph Abet, and others. Several of these are the rum accounts. There are also several women mentioned with accounts with Coffin: Elizabeth Coffin and Hannah Coffin, presumed relatives, as well as a Mrs. Haddon, a Mrs. Gage, and a woman by the name of Sarah.Tristram Coffin Family Tristram Coffin (or Coffyn) (ca. 1609 – 2 October 1681) was an immigrant to Massachusetts from England. He became a prominent citizen of the settlement. A great number of his descendants became prominent in North American society, and many were involved in the later history of Nantucket during and after its heyday as a whaling center. Many notable Americans with roots in Nantucket are descended from Tristram Coffin.Tristram Coffin and other Salisbury investors bought Nantucket island from Thomas Mayhew on 2 July 1659. The purchase price was 30 pounds plus two beaver hats made by his son, also called Tristram. Coffin was the prime mover of the enterprise and was given first choice of land. In 1659 he settled near the western end of the island near Capaum pond. His sons Peter Coffin, Tristram Coffin Junior and James Coffin also received land on the island. Soon after settling, Tristram Coffin purchased the thousand-acre Tuckernuck Island at the western end of Nantucket. On 10 May 1660 the sachems conveyed title to a large part of the island to Coffin and his associates for eighty pounds. He built a corn mill in which he employed many of the local Native Americans, and he employed others on his farm.In 1671 Coffin and Thomas Macy were selected as spokesmen for the settlers, going to New York in 1671 to meet with Governor Francis Lovelace and secure their claim to Nantucket. As the wealthiest and respected of the settlers, Coffin was appointed chief magistrate of Nantucket on 29 June 1671. In 1677 he was again appointed chief magistrate for a term of four years.Tristram Coffin died on 2 October 1681 at the age of 76. During the years before his death, he had bestowed much of his property on his children and grandchildren. He was buried on his property on Nantucket Island. At his death he left seven children, 60 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. One of his grandchildren calculated that by the year 1728, the number of his descendants was 1582, of whom 1128 were still aliveThe immigrant Tristram Coffin (c1609-1681) had a son named Tristram Coffin, Jr. (1632-1704) who was born in Brixton, England. This son married Judith Greenleaf (1625-1705), daughter of Edmund Greenleaf, and widow of Henry Somberby. Tristram Jr. was a Deacon and Representative from Newbury, Essex Co., Massachusetts. He died on 4 February 1704 and his wife died 15 December 1705. Together they had at least ten children. One of their children was James Coffin (1659-1736) who married Florence Hooke (1660-1712), the daughter of Horace Hooke of Newbury. One of the children of James and Florence was also named Tristram Coffin. This Tristram was born on 14 October 1694 and married Martha Cheney. Martha Cheney is likely related to the Peter Cheney that set up a corn mill at Newbury. This account book mentions a "mill" and mentions "corn." As was his grandfather, he was a Deacon too. Tristram died on 19 May 1775. This Tristram Coffin (1694-1775), the great grandson of the "immigrant" Tristram Coffin, would appear to be the one who kept this account book, as he would appear to be (according to a family genealogy online at ancestry.com) one who was living during time of the entire keeping of this account book during the years 1718 to 1738. There were at least three other Tristram Coffins, with their birth and death dates being 1688-1688; 1689-1718; and 1696-1727, thus Tristram Coffin, born 1694, dying in 1775, the son of James Coffin (1659-1736) and Florence Hook, would appear to be the correct writer of this account book. It is possible that the Tristram Coffin who was born in 1696 and died in 1727 is also the writer, with the later entries perhaps being added by someone else. Further research of the handwriting would be needed to clarify this.

Plein veau moucheté, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, roulette dorée sur les coupes (reliure de l'époque, frottée, charnière du plat supérieur fendue, usures aux coins). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage important et richement illustré, qui comporte 19 planches gravées dont 15 dépliantes (totalisant 20 feuillets). C'est une description détaillée des parasites dont l'auteur avait fait état dans son ouvrage intitulé "De la Génération des Vers dans le corps de l'Homme" (1700), qui est le premier traité médical de parasitologie. "Andry's views were often ahead of his time. Unlike most of his contemporaries, he did not believe in the spontaneous generation of parasites but clearly stated that their seeds entered the body from outside sources and that some foods were particularly liable to contain them" (Garrison-Morton). Les gravures, particulièrement spectaculaires, représentent différents types de parasites intestinaux, suspendus aux branches d'un arbre. Large trace de mouillure, déchirure restaurée assez grossièrement à la planche 14. Texte manuscrit en allemand inscrit au verso blanc d'une page dans le corps de l'ouvrage. Cf.

        ESPINGARDA PERFEYTA, & REGRAS PARA A SUA OPERAÇAM

      - com circunstancias necessarias para seu artificio, & doutrinas úteis para o seu artificio, & doutrinas uteis para o melhor acerto; DEDICADA A’ MAGESTADE DO SERENISSIMO REY DE Portugal Nosso Senhor D. JOAÕ V. Pelos dous Irmãos. CESAR FIOSCONI, E JORDAM GUSERIO. LISBOA OCCIDENTAL, Na Officina de ANTONIO PEDROZO GALRAM. Anno de 1718. In 8.º (19x13,5 cm) com [xxxii], 183 págs. Encadernação do século xix inteira de pele ao gosto da época. Ilustrado com magnifico frontispício alegórico gravado com as armas de D. João V ao centro e 11 (de 12) gravuras assinadas por M. Freyre. Exemplar com falta da gravura dupla na página 146; e com ex-libris armoriado de Ribeiro Lessa. Obra de excepcional raridade e única em todo o mundo pois os autores revelam os segredos da sua arte de fabricar espingardas. Trabalho muito valioso para o estudo do fabrico de armas em Portugal, que foi muito influente no desenvolvimento da construção de armas a nível mundial. Inocêncio 4, 28. "JOÃO RODRIGUES (2.º), Espingardeiro, muito perito na sua profissão, como diz Barbosa, e se comprova pelo livro que compoz. Foi natural de Lisboa, mas nada consta das datas do seu nascimento e obito. Espingarda perfeita, e regras para a sua operação, com circumstancias necessarias para o seu artificio, e doutrinas uteis para o melhor acerto. Lisboa, por Antonio Pedroso Galrão 1718. 4.º de XXXII-183 pag., com treze estampas. Este livro, que parece foi escripto por elle, e por seu irmão José Francisco, publicou-se com os nomes de Cesar Fiosconi e Jordam Guserio, que como se vê formam os anagrammas perfeitos dos de seus verdadeiros auctores. Elles constam egualmente da vinheta do frontispicio, posto que tão miudamente gravados, que apenas se percebem á vista, o que me fez observar o sr. Figaniere. Com quanto na obra haja que aproveitar, ao menos no que diz respeito á linguagem technica, e seja de tal qual interesse para a historia da arte, os exemplares ainda assim são pouco procurados, e eu comprei um por quantia bem insignificante. O que não obsta a que o falecido Joaquim Francisco Monteiro de Campos, homem que (como bem sabem os que o conheceram) tirava todo o partido possivel da boa fé, ou melhor da ignorancia dos compradores, vendesse no seu tempo alguns pelo preço exorbitante de 1:920 réis! Como não poucas vezes apparecem exemplares faltos de algumas estampas, e estas não tenham indicação do numero, nem outra circumstancia, que possa accusar a falta, julgo conveniente dar aqui uma descripção miuda das mesmas estampas, e da sua collocação, para que aquelles a cuja mão fôr ter algum exemplar hajam meio de verificar se todas existem nos seus logares. Antes da dedicatoria ha um frontispicio gravado, tendo no centro as armas reaes de Portugal. A pag. 8 uma estampa de maior formato, que representa a officina do espingardeiro, com os seus instrumentos e utensilios proprios da arte. A pag. 48 uma estampa no formato do livro, que representa dous artistas batendo uma peça sobre a bigorna. A pag. 76 uma estampa no formato do livro, que mostra o espingardeiro olhando pelo cano da espingarda á maneira de telescopio. A pag. 80, estampa no mesmo formato. Vê-se o espingardeiro affeiçoando ao torno o cano de uma espingarda. A pag. 84, estampa que mostra as dimensões que competem ao referido cano. A pag. 91, estampa que representa o espingardeiro na acção de limar o cano, a regra e compasso. A pag. 95, estampa que mostra o modo de limar os canos redondos. A pag. 121, estampa representando os fechos. A pag. 131, estampa que representa outra maneira de fechos. A pag. 137, estampa que representa os espingardeiros polindo as armas A pag. 147 estampa de maior formato que o do livro, contendo varias peças da espingarda. A pag. 160, estampa que mostra o artista na acção de experimentar a espingarda." [EN] Binding: contemporary19th Century replica made in full calf.

      impensis Orphanotrophei,, Halae, 1718 - In 4° (20,8x16,6 cm); 20, 752, (72) pp. Bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con dorso a 4 nervi e titolo in oro su fascetta. Tagli spruzzati in blu. Titolo impresso in rosso e nero. Bella marca tipografica animata al frontespizio con motto "Illo splendente levabor". Testatine, iniziali e finalini animati e riccamente ornati. Esemplare in ottime condizioni di conservazione con pagine che a differenza degli altri esemplari conosciuti, si presenta con pagine con solo leggerissima brunitura (le opere stampate a Halle per la qualità della carta si presentano solitamente fortemente brunite). Prima rarissima edizione, due soli esemplari censiti in ICCU, di questo importante studio medico-chimico del celebre medico tedesco Johann Juncker. L'autore fu a lungo professore di medicina ad Halle (fu anche rettore dell'Università) e medico privato di molte eminenti personalità dell'epoca. Junker fu anche uno dei massimi difensori della teoria del flogisto di Georg Ernst Stahl. Tale teoria elaborata nel XVII secolo riguarda la combustione dei materiali e ha l'intento di spiegare i processi di ossidazione e combustione. La teoria del flogisto venne successivamente smentita e abbandonata dopo che fu resa pubblica la legge della conservazione della massa di Antoine Lavoisier. La teoria in sostanza sostiene che i materiali combustibili e metalli arroventati si trasformavano in "calci" (oggi diremmo semplicemente che si ossidano) producendo durante il processo di combustione o di calcinazione, il "flogisto", un misterioso principio di infiammabilità o principio solforoso. Junker fu anche un grande organizzatore e fondò uno degli ospedali più apprezzati della sua epoca realizzando una struttura di sanità pubblica ad Halle che distribuiva farmaci gratuitamente ai poveri. L'opera qui presentata, che ebbe varie riedizioni nel corso di tutto il XVIII° secolo, è particolarmente apprezzata per la sua completezza nella trattazione di diverse patologie e per la chiarezza dei sentimi legati agli stessi. L'opera, divisa in capitoli tratta di diversi tipi di febbri ma anche di malattie veneree, malattie infettive e presenta capitoli intramente dedicati alla depressione (o melanconia), varie manie, idrofobia, nottambulismo e dei bambini. Esemplare in ottime condizioni di conservazione, raro. Good copy, rare, first edition. Rif. Bibl.: IT\ICCU\RMSE\007029.

        Uitbeelding der Heerlijkheit Friesland... ENGRAVED TITLE PAGE. [Willen Henskes copy?.

      Leeuwarden:: Francois Halma,, 1718.. Very rare. From the second, enlarged edition, as the first edition (1698) was published in only 125 copies.. 28 x 45cm. Single leaf.. Francois Halma, ed. Title page. Trimmed just outside the borders. Appears to be a title page pre-publishing (?), with small map, coat of arms, and title tablet excised, replaced with contemporary notes in ÒWillem HenskesÓ hand (?). Henskes was an authority on Dutch books in the 18th century. It is rare, but few books of the period were bound with such things as the coat of arms and title lacking from the engraving, so that the owner could personalize it for themselves. Mounted at corners on larger plain leaf, suitable for framing, or to match with another copy. From the famous Friesland Atlas, the first atlas of the Dutch province of Friesland. Beautiful allegorical frontispiece (first appearance in this edition), engraved by Jacob Folkema after a drawing by artist Gerbrandus van der Haven and especially after the poet Johannes Hilarides.

      Artist: Seutter Matthias d ; issued in: Augsburg; date: d1718 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 49,5 x 57; - description: Decorative map of the region centered on Belgrade and the Danube River. The map is graphically engraved to illustrated mountains, rivers, lakes, swamps, modern and Roman roads, fortifications, monasteries, cities and villages. The superb title cartouche commemorates the Treaty of Passarowitz (1718) when the Austrians took the region from the Ottoman Turks. ; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

        [Correspondence]: Letters of Admiral of the Fleet Sir George Byng to Sir George Delaval concerning the Battle of Cape Passaro in 1718, including Line of Battle Orders

      Near Fine. A remarkable archive of 24 letters from Admiral of the Fleet George Byng, sent to Rear Admiral George Delaval, who commanded the Blue Squadron under Byng's command, along with associated documents from George Saunders and Josiah Burchett, Secretary of the Admiralty, relating to the British naval campaign of 1718 in the Mediterranean, culminating in the Battle of Cape Passaro, Sicily, on the 11th August. A mix of quarto and folio sheet with many folded once to form four pages. Each letter is Signed by Byng, with one signed twice. Despite their age the letters are near fine or better with only light wear and housed in a custom cloth chemise with printed labels.The Battle of Cape Passaro resulted in the defeat of the Spanish by the British Fleet under Sir George Byng four months before the War of the Quadruple Alliance. The Spanish refused to re-embark their army from the Sicilian mainland. Despite war not having been formally declared, Byng correctly anticipated approval from home and attacked and routed the Spanish fleet, thwarting their ambitions to take Italy and Sicily.The subject matter of the letters is concerned with supplies, day-to-day naval matters, and continuing hostilities against the Spanish, and includes details of several rendezvous for meeting up in the event of separation owing to bad weather. Common problems are mentioned such as desertion and shortage of food and more particularly wine. The earliest is dated May 17th concerning the mobilization of troops and pressed men for the campaign. The letter of May 29th regards the Line of Battle detailing ships, ordnance and men, commanders and formation, and pennants, and the signals to be used. On July 3rd Byng gives orders to oppose the landing of the Spanish in Italy with a warrant order of operations to "take, sink, burn or destroy" the King of Spain's ships; the last of the series dates from the December 9th from the Admiralty office (not by Byng) congratulating Delaval on his safe arrival at Spithead and requesting him to escort the fireship Griffin to Deptford. Byng sent mail from on board his ship the Barfleur whilst at sea, and also from the Admiralty office in London.Byng was sent on subsequent diplomatic missions on behalf of England to negotiate with Italian princes and states, and was instrumental in the acceptance of the terms of the Quadruple Alliance by Spain. In 1718 Byng was already a respected member of the establishment, having supported the accession of William and Mary at the Glorious Revolution, contributed to the burning of the French fleet at Vigo, and leading the bombardment squadron during the capture of Gibraltar. He was rewarded with a knighthood and a regular promotion. After the success of 1718 this included membership in the Privy Council, admittance to the Order of the Bath and the title of Viscount Torrington which his descendants still bear today. In 1727 Byng was made First Lord of the Admiralty and the Royal Naval College at Portsmouth was founded in his memory.Delaval also had a distinguished naval and diplomatic career from a young age, with victory at the Battle of Malaga in 1704 and missions to Spain and Portugal, as well as his promotion to Rear Admiral and leadership of The Blue Squadron. He is perhaps best known for rebuilding his ancestral seat, the celebrated Seaton Delaval Hall in Northumberland (now a National Trust property), with architect Sir John Vanbrugh.It is important to note that Admiral George Byng should not be confused with his fourth son, John Byng, also present at the Battle of Cape Passaro as a 13 years old, who built a respectable career as a naval officer and became an Admiral but was court-martialed and shot by firing squad on 14 March 1757.A remarkable collection of letters from the First Lord of the Admiralty during the reign of King George II. Detailed list by date:1. BYNG, George. ALS, 2pp., Admiralty Office: May 17th.

Balchon to be passed on to any more senior officer at Spithead.3. BYNG, George. ALS, 3pp., Admiralty Office: May 19th.

Winder's proposition of taking wine and Byng agrees with it.

        [Correspondence]: Letters of Admiral of the Fleet Sir George Byng to Sir George Delaval concerning the Battle of Cape Passaro in 1718, including Line of Battle Orders

      Near Fine. A remarkable archive of 24 letters from Admiral of the Fleet George Byng, sent to Rear Admiral George Delaval, who commanded the Blue Squadron under Byng's command, along with associated documents from George Saunders and Josiah Burchett, Secretary of the Admiralty, relating to the British naval campaign of 1718 in the Mediterranean, culminating in the Battle of Cape Passaro, Sicily, on the 11th August. A mix of quarto and folio sheet with many folded once to form four pages. Each letter is Signed by Byng, with one signed twice. Despite their age the letters are near fine or better with only light wear and housed in a custom cloth chemise with printed labels.The Battle of Cape Passaro resulted in the defeat of the Spanish by the British Fleet under Sir George Byng four months before the War of the Quadruple Alliance. The Spanish refused to re-embark their army from the Sicilian mainland. Despite war not having been formally declared, Byng correctly anticipated approval from home and attacked and routed the Spanish fleet, thwarting their ambitions to take Italy and Sicily.The subject matter of the letters is concerned with supplies, day-to-day naval matters, and continuing hostilities against the Spanish, and includes details of several rendezvous for meeting up in the event of separation owing to bad weather. Common problems are mentioned such as desertion and shortage of food and more particularly wine. The earliest is dated May 17th concerning the mobilization of troops and pressed men for the campaign. The letter of May 29th regards the Line of Battle detailing ships, ordnance and men, commanders and formation, and pennants, and the signals to be used. On July 3rd Byng gives orders to oppose the landing of the Spanish in Italy with a warrant order of operations to "take, sink, burn or destroy" the King of Spain's ships; the last of the series dates from the December 9th from the Admiralty office (not by Byng) congratulating Delaval on his safe arrival at Spithead and requesting him to escort the fireship Griffin to Deptford. Byng sent mail from on board his ship the Barfleur whilst at sea, and also from the Admiralty office in London.Byng was sent on subsequent diplomatic missions on behalf of England to negotiate with Italian princes and states, and was instrumental in the acceptance of the terms of the Quadruple Alliance by Spain. In 1718 Byng was already a respected member of the establishment, having supported the accession of William and Mary at the Glorious Revolution, contributed to the burning of the French fleet at Vigo, and leading the bombardment squadron during the capture of Gibraltar. He was rewarded with a knighthood and a regular promotion. After the success of 1718 this included membership in the Privy Council, admittance to the Order of the Bath and the title of Viscount Torrington which his descendants still bear today. In 1727 Byng was made First Lord of the Admiralty and the Royal Naval College at Portsmouth was founded in his memory.Delaval also had a distinguished naval and diplomatic career from a young age, with victory at the Battle of Malaga in 1704 and missions to Spain and Portugal, as well as his promotion to Rear Admiral and leadership of The Blue Squadron. He is perhaps best known for rebuilding his ancestral seat, the celebrated Seaton Delaval Hall in Northumberland (now a National Trust property), with architect Sir John Vanbrugh.It is important to note that Admiral George Byng should not be confused with his fourth son, John Byng, also present at the Battle of Cape Passaro as a 13 years old, who built a respectable career as a naval officer and became an Admiral but was court-martialed and shot by firing squad on 14 March 1757.A remarkable collection of letters from the First Lord of the Admiralty during the reign of King George II. Detailed list by date:1. BYNG, George. ALS, 2pp., Admiralty Office: May 17th. Letter giving instructions for troops and pressed men on transport ships coming from Ireland to be taken to the Isle of Wight until the fleet is ready for them to board (care to be taken that they don't desert).2. BYNG, George. LS, 1p., Admiralty Office: May 18th. Letter requesting reports every other day instead of weekly, now that the Mediterranean ships are under his command. Reports should give details of the condition of ships and provisions for the squadron at Spithead; ships to be kept well supplied. The letter is addressed to Capt. Balchon to be passed on to any more senior officer at Spithead.3. BYNG, George. ALS, 3pp., Admiralty Office: May 19th. Letter requesting men to be dispersed where needed among the ships already assembled as Byng's ship the HMS Barfleur is held up by strong winds at the Downs. All should be in sailing order and prepared for voyage with Byng shortly making his way to Portsmouth.4. BYNG, George. ALS, 3pp., onboard the Barfleur at Spithead: May 20th. Letter to accompany requesting twice weekly forms to be completed whilst in England and each Monday thereafter.

Letter in reply to one sent to him on the 19th with instructions that the men recently arrived at Spithead from Ireland should be dispersed "as you think fit" and only discharged if sick. Fleet should be assembled by the end of the week ready to leave as soon as possible so should be in sailing order.6. BYNG, George. ALS, 3pp., Admiralty: May 21st. Letter requesting the pressed men from the Dunkirk should be put on board the HMS Success and the HMS Drake sloops from Ireland. Men are in short supply and the expected West Country recruits from Captain Drake have not materialized.7. BYNG, George. ALS, 1p., Admiralty: May 24th. Letter apologizing for not replying to Capt. Winder's proposition of taking wine and Byng agrees with it. Suggests he (Byng) should set out next day for Portsmouth with the rest of the squadron as long as his instruction is signed by the King -- he's impatient at the delay.8. BYNG, George.

In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

        The Preface to Mr. Pope

      s.n., [London 1718 - First separate edition. 2 pp. broadsheet. Folio (12 x 6 inches). The first separate printing of Aaron Hill's Preface in reply to Alexander Pope's criticism of his Northern-Star, a poem published in 1718 and dedicated to Peter the Great of Russia. "Hill had, apparently through Lintot, asked Pope's opinion of The Northern Star. Lintot, according to Hill, reported to him that Pope though 'Printing any thing in Praise of the Czar of Russian wou'd be receiv'd as a Satyr on the Government'" (Guerinot). Hill questions Pope's criticisim and professes he would have preferred that the poem by critiqued on the merits of its style and execution, than to be faulted for insulting the government. He criticises Pope's Windsor Forest for its forced classicism and further lashes out at the popular poetic diction of his age, in which "? all our Women are Nymphs, Angels, or Goddesses; our Men, Demi-hero's; all our Soldiers are invincible; all our Generals beyond Caesar; all our Kings like Augustus ?" The broadsheet is without imprint, but may have been printed by either Berington or Morphew, printers of The Northern-Star. Hill and Pope clashed frequently, though they were not bitter enemies and did exchange letters. Later editions of Hill's poem excluded the Preface, presumably at the author's request. Rare, not in ESTC. Cf. Foxon H225 & Guerinot, p. 74 (for Hill's poem); not in ESTC Fine, with contemporary manuscript addition to title, explaining that the Preface is "To a poem called, The Northern Star, by Aaron Hill" 2 pp. broadsheet.

        A Clue to the Comedy of the Non-Juror. With Some Hints of Consequence Relating to That Play. In a Letter to N. Rowe, Esq; Poet Laureat to His Majesty

      E. Curll, London 1718 - First edition. [3]-25, [3, ads] pp., lacking half-title. 8vo. Pope vs. Cibber. Rare first edition of Pope's pamphlet reply to Colley Cibber's The Non-Juror, a baldly propagandistic adaptation of Moliere's Tartuffe. Cibber's play slanders all non-jurors (such as the Catholic Alexander Pope) as outright Jacobites. Cibber alludes to Pope three times in the play and generally disparages his Catholicism. "These three allusions, not very meaningful in themselves, were probably meant to suggest that Pope's verse would be popular in homes disaffected to Hanoverian interests and to remind the audience or reader that Pope was a Catholic and, all too probably, like Dr Wolf, a Jacobite" (Guerinot, p. 70). Pope's ingenious reply twists Cibber's muddled work to suggest The Non-Juror is in fact a sly piece of pro-Jacobite propaganda.That Pope wrote a response to Cibber's play was known from Cibber's A Letter from Mr. Cibber to Mr. Pope (1742): "At this time then there came out a Pamphlet (the Title I have forgot) ? The Purport of this odd Piece of Wit was to prove, that the Non-Juror in its Design, its Characters, and almost every Scene of it, was a closely couched Jacobite Libel against the Government: And, in troth, the Charge was in some places so shrewdly maintained, that I almost liked the Jest myself; at least, it was so much above the Spirit, and Invention of the Daily-Paper Satyrists, that all the sensible Readers I met with, without Hesitation gave it to Mr. Pope." The unnamed pamphlet was commonly thought to be A Compleat Key to the Non-Juror, published by Curll in 1718. George Sherburn's "Notes on the Canon of Pope's Works, 1714-20," in The Manly Anniversary Studies in Language and Literature (Chicago, 1923), shows conclusively that the present work, the similarly titled A Clue to the Comedy of the Non-Juror, is by Pope, and the attribution was accepted by Griffith in the appendix to his bibliography of Pope.The Non-Juror was round two in the Pope-Cibber quarrel; the feud began the previous year with Pope's Three Hours after Marriage - in which, remarkably, Cibber was cast in the lead of a play designed to mock him - and culminated with Cibber as the modern epitome of dullness in Pope's 1742 Dunciad. "The Pope-Cibber quarrel was of long standing. Temperamentally incompatible, intellectually unequal, on opposite sides in politics and differing radically in their lifestyles, yet both inhabiting a tiny, emotionally overheated segment of London life in which each was acutely aware of the other's presence, they were almost bound to clash sooner or later" (ODNB).

        The true Nature of Imposture Fully Display'd in the Life of Mahomet.

      London: Printed for E. Curll and J. Hooke, and W. Mears and F. Clay,, 1718. With A Discourse annex'd for the Vindication of Christianity from this Charge. Offered to the Consideration of the Deists of the Present Age. The Seventh Edition, Corrected. Octavo (195 x 120 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, raised bands and red morocco label lettered in gilt to spine, blind-stamped fillets to each panel on covers, second concentric panel with floral blind-stamped cornerpieces, third concentric panel with serrated border roll-tooled in blind, red speckled edges. Small ink ownership inscriptions to front and rear pastedowns, bookplate to front pastedown. Slight rubbing to covers, top edge dust-soiled obscuring the red speckling, some light creasing to pages. An excellent copy. Seventh edition, first published in 1697. As the title implies, Muhammad is treated with great hostility in the book as a fraud and a tyrant. However, the main purpose of the treatise was not to act as a bulwark against the Islamic faith, which posed little threat of proselytising itself amongst the British people, but to serve as a polemic against Deism by equating Islam, still viewed with aversion by most Christians, with Deist ideas. Moreover, the latter part of the 17th century had seen greatly increased knowledge of Islam in the West, which was used by some Deists as a basis to critique Christian theology; by portraying Muhammad as an impostor, his value to the field of comparative religion was diminished. The author is careful however to ensure that his charges of imposture levelled at Muhammad cannot be applied to Christ. Though the book is appended with an impressive bibliography, research has shown that the author's claim to have read the original Arabic sources was false; George Sale was highly critical of Prideaux in his 1734 translation of the Koran.
