         THE HISTORY OF THE WARS OF NEW-ENGLAND, WITH THE EASTERN INDIANS. OR, A NARRATIVE OF THEIR CONTINUED PERFIDY AND CRUELTY.

      Boston: Printed by T. Fleet, for S. Gerrish.and D. Henchman., 1726. - [2],iv,[2],134,[1]pp. including in-text woodcuts. 12mo. Old calf, neatly rebacked, spine tooled in gilt with raised bands and gilt morocco label. Lower quarter of titlepage (containing the imprint and two lines of Latin text) as well as the "Advertisement" (i.e. errata) leaf in expert facsimile. A few expert tissue repairs to leaves, some old soiling and staining, but overall a very good copy. One of the primary sources for the early Indian wars of New England, describing the fighting on the northern and eastern borders of Massachusetts during Queen Anne's War of 1703-13 as well as fighting in 1722-25. Vail calls it an "excellent history," and Field adds that Penhallow's "work on the Indian wars is esteemed as the highest authority on that subject." Penhallow, although having gone to Massachusetts as a missionary, became a chief justice of the colony, and as such was in an excellent position to know about colonial military affairs. A very rare book, accorded a "c" rating by Howes. Vail calls it an "excellent history" and Field ranks it "among the rarest of New England imprints." HOWES P201, "c." CHURCH 904. EVANS 2796. SABIN 59654. FIELD 1202. STREETER SALE 674. VAIL 351.

Finely bound in late 19th-century olivine morocco by Riviere & Son, rchly gilt spines, gilt French fillet on sides, richly gilt turn-ins, gilt edges. Housed in a custom-made morocco trimmed slipcase. From the library of the distinguished book collector E. Hubert Litchfield, with his armorial bookplate in each volume (sale at Parke-Bernet Galleries, New York, 1951). Letterpress expertly cleaned at the time of binding. A very attractive copy. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Gulliver (second state), 4 maps and 2 plans, wood-engraved head and tail-pieces and initials. First edition, Teerink's A edition with all the necessary points to distinguish it from the two later printings (Teerink AA and B) also dated 1726. Teerink's A was published on 28 October, AA some time in the middle of November, and the B edition in December. The first five editions of Gulliver's Travels (three octavo editions in 1726, one octavo and one duodecimo edition in 1727) were all published by Benjamin Motte. "The clandestine business of getting into print a pseudonymous and satirically explosive political satire entitled Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World (known from the start by its more popular title, Gulliver's Travels) was managed chiefly by Pope, with the assistance of John Gay and Erasmus Lewis. For speed, and to counter the risk of piracy, Motte used five printing houses (those of Edward Say, Henry Woodfall, James Bettenham, William Pearson, and, for the greatest share, that of Jane Ilive). The first edition appeared on 28 October 1726 in two octavo volumes at the price of 8s. 6d., but with unauthorized deletions and insertions by Andrew Tooke (the brother of Benjamin Tooke jun.), and sold out within a week. Gay wrote: 'From the highest to the lowest it is universally read, from the Cabinet-council to the Nursery' Motte followed up with two more octavo editions in 1726 and a duodecimo in 1727, and there was a serialized version which began in the Penny Post (25 November 1726). There were two Dublin editions before the end of 1726, each set up from Motte's first edition. The book sold well in French: the first complete translation appeared at The Hague in January 1727, and an abridged adaptation by the Abbé Desfontaines in Paris in April Swift received from Motte £200 and possibly more from the sales of the book, largely due to Pope's effort at instilling into his friend the principles of 'prudent management' Gulliver's Travels is the book by which Swift is chiefly remembered, and it is the record of his own experience in politics under Queen Anne as an Irishman in what G. B. Shaw called 'John Bull's other island'" (ODNB). A very desirable copy of one of the greatest books in the language.

Whilst still a novice he was sent to study at the University of Louvain, whence he was recalled in 1527 to become coadjutor to the Abbot, Gilles Gippus, his nomination as such being confirmed by a Bull of Pope Paul III. Three years later, in 1530, he succeeded Gippus as thirty-fourth Abbot of Liessies, and received ordination and the abbatial blessing in the same year. His first care was the cultivation in his abbey of a true monastic spirit and strict discipline, which had somewhat declined under his predecessors. He had hardly settle down to the work of reform before Flanders was immersed in war owing to its invasion by Francis I of France, which occurred in 1537. Liessies, being on the frontier, became in consequence an unsafe habitation and Blosius proposed a move to the priory of Ath, in the interior, but most of his monks, being opposed to his reform, either elected to remain at Liessies or else went to other laxer monasteries. The abbot, however, with three monks, returned to Ath and there he at once restored the primitive observance of the rule. In spite of opposition the reform gained ground and numbers increased rapidly. When a return to Liessies became possible, in 1545, the reform was accepted by those that had remained there and was confirmed by a Bull of Pope Paul III, Blosius next began a restoration and enlargement of the abbey buildings, which were only completed after his death. In 1556 Charles V offered him the Archbishopric of Cambrai and the abbacy of Tournai, both of which he refused in order that he might remain at Liessies. In personal character he was distinguished for his gentleness, his generosity to the poor, his love of chastity, and his devotion to the Mother of God. He was a diligent student, especially of the Scriptures, the works of the Fathers, and the mystical writers of the fourteenth century" (New Advent). - Etw. gebräunt und fleckig. Mehrfach gestempelt.

      Nürnberg Peter Conrad Monath 1726 - Small 4to (21 x 17.5 cm). pp. [4], 226, [13], engraved frontispiece, title page in red and black, engraved title page, 27 engraved folding illustration plates. Later floral boards. Fundamental and richly illustrated work describing Jewish customs, rituals and costumes. This detailed description of Jewish ceremonial customs by Paul Christian Kirchner, a Jewish convert to Christianity, was first published in 1717 and then re-edited by the Christian Hebraist Sebastian Jacob Jugendres, who added his own commentary to the work, in 1724. The new edition included twenty-eight copperplate engravings (nine signed by Johann Georg Puschner) depicting a variety of Jewish rituals, including events marking the life cycle within the synagogue community, such as: circumcision, presentation of the first born, prayer at the synagogue, wedding, purification of the bride, the washing of the brother-in-law's feet, divorce, the feast of reconciliation, death rites, burials, the Sabbath, and various holiday ceremonies. The illustrations are accompanied by four pages of legends that clarify them in detail. The book was intended for a German audience. Kirchner sought to persuade other Jews to follow his lead and convert to Christianity. The copper engravings may have been made in the workshop of Johann Georg Puschner the Elder (1680 – 1749), either by himself or by his son (also called Johann Georg).

They are steady and sound. There is some wear to the spine seams, but the book's security and facility are unaffected. The contents are in excellent condition. There are, of course, age related marks, areas of tanning and foxing. In general, and by far, the contents are healthy, tidy, well maintained and preserved.

Osborn at the Ship at St. Saviour's Dock-Head near Horsely-Down 1726 - First edition. 8vo., vi, 458pp., folding map, 4 engraved plates, contemporary calf, neat repairs to joints, lightly rubbed, an excellent copy. An imaginary voyage, originally regarded as a genuine account, but later regarded as fictitious and possibly by Daniel Defoe. The Defoe theory is now not widely held, but it is believed that the book is a work of fiction. In this first-person narrative, George Roberts is an English slaver. In 1721 he signs on as chief mate for a voyage to Virginia via Madeira and Barbados. Roberts falls out with the captain however, and sest out on his own for Guinea. He is captured by pirates and set adrift in a sloop which wrecks on St. John, one of the Cape Verde Islands. He remained there for two years before returning to England in 1726. The narrative includes much information on the Cape Verde Islands. European Americana 726/180; Howgego V, R19; Moore 483; Sabin 71888. [Attributes: First Edition]
