A ambitious lithograph advertisement for the Hotel de Belle Vue in Deutz, facing Cologne over the Rhine. The finely engraved view of the hotel shows it with its surrounding park lying on the Rhine which is bustling with barges, there is a bridge crossing the river full of promenading people. The litho map of Cologne indicates the places worth visiting in the city. The verso of the broadside is entirely taken up with a litho panorama of the Rhine from Cologne, over Dusseldorf to Mainz. On either side are litho maps for the railway journey from Cologne to Berlin and from Cologne to Paris, at the bottom there is a view of Cologne cathedral.

BIBLIOMACHIA SWIFT, Jonathan. 

A Tale of a Tub … to which is added, an Account of a Battle between the antient and modern Books in St. James’s Library … with the Author’s Apology, and explanatory Notes … 

A scarce later edition of Swift’s classic satires on corruption in religion and learning, as exemplified in the conduct of Peter (Roman Catholicism), Martin (Luther), and Jack (Calvin) in the Tale of the Tub, and the spirited fight over the highest peak of Parnassus in the Battel of the Books.  Both pieces were written at Moor Park about 1696-7, when Swift was acting as secretary to Sir William Temple, whose uncritical praise of the spurious Epistles of Phalaris had stirred up the controversy over ancient and modern learning.
