GRAVINA GIAN VINCENZO
Romae, ex typographia Antonii de Rubeis, 1696. Pp. 141 (1) + 1 c.b. Preceduto da: GRAVINA GIAN VINCENZO. Opuscula. Romae, ex typographia Antonii de Rubeis, 1696. Pp. 205 (1) + 1 c.b. Due opere in un volume di cm. 14. Legatura settecentesca in mezza pelle con dorso a 5 nervi, titoli e fregi in oro; tagli spruzzati. Traccia di antico timbro. Due mancanze di pelle al dorso, lievi fioriture e qualche macchietta sparsa. Gian Vincenzo Gravina (1664-1718), di origini calabresi, fu letterato e acutissimo giurista, nonché tra i fondatori dell'Accademia dell'Arcadia. I. "Il Discorso da un lato riprese e rielaborò in modo sistematico temi e prospettive già presenti nel Discorso sopra l'Endimione, dall'altro anticipò problematiche che domineranno la Ragion poetica, di cui costituirà senza sostanziali modifiche il primo libro. Il G. vi volle definire il ruolo e l'utilità della poesia e tracciare un profilo ideale di poeta, per poi dimostrare la funzione essenziale della "verisimile favola", sia per la poesia sia per il poeta, facendo della figura di Omero il costante punto di riferimento" (voce G. in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani ? vol. 58).  II. "Gli Opuscula (Specimen prisci iuris, De conversione doctrinarum, De lingua Latina dialogus, De lingua Etrusca dialogus, De contemtu [sic] mortis, De luctu minuendo) contengono in nuce tematiche poi ampiamente affrontate nelle opere maggiori.

Swift, Jonathan (contributor) & John DUNTON (editor and publisher)
London: John Dunton, 1696. Volumes I-XIX (of XX) with volume titles. No. 25 in vol. XVII lacking. Folio. Contemporary Cambridge calf. Rebacked, heavy foxing and toning, some pages cropped. Volumes I-XIX (of XX) with volume titles. No. 25 in vol. XVII lacking. Folio. Swift's First Appearance in Print. A long run of The Athenian Gazette, containing Jonathan Swift's first appearance in print. His "Ode to the Anthenian Society" with a prefatory letter of 14 February 1791 from Moor Park appears on pages 1-6 of the supplement to the fifth volume. Both the poem and letter are signed in print, unusual for Swift who rarely acknowledged his works. Swift addresses his poem to the Athenian Society, an anonymous club of learned men, whose members are now known to have included the Gazette's publisher John Dunton, Samuel Wesley (father of John and Charles), and Richard Sault. The Gazette printed answers to questions sent in by its readers. "Through twelve diffuse stanzas, composed in nine days, Swift congratulates the nameless subjects of his adoration (actually a bookseller [John Dunton] and some hack assistants) upon their great part in reviving learning after the wars of 1688-91 ... while he is delighted by their skill in refining philosophy ... he reproves them for their compliments to women, which have turned the heads of the female sex" (Ehrenpreis, Swift I, p. 115). According to Dr. Johnson's apocryphal anecdote, this was the poem that lead Dryden to observe, "Cousin Swift, you will never be a poet." [Bound after:] [GILDON, Charles].

AUBREY, JOHN
London: Printed for Edward Castle, 1696, 1696. First edition. Wing A-4188; NCBEL II, 1682. Bound a little tightly; edges slightly rubbed; some scattered foxing; very good copy, and uncommon thus.. 8vo, contemporary calf rebacked, maroon leather label, gilt rules and lettering. Five woodcuts in the text. Lacking the front blank (A1). The only book by John Aubrey (1626-1697) printed in his lifetime, a compilation of entertaining anecdotes which he styled "A Collection of Hermitic Philosophy." It contains anecdotes on numerous subjects: Omens, dreams, apparitions, voices, impulses, marvels, magic, transportation by invisible powers, glances of love and envy, etc., interspersed with autobiographical details about the author. It was a popular work, though considered by many an eccentric one. There were later editions in 1721 and 1784, and Scott refers to it in his novel The Antiquary. "The Miscellanies make a pleasant bedside book, which the passing of two hundred and fifty years has not made dull," Anthony Powell, John Aubrey and His Friends (1963). Aubrey's famous Lives of Eminent Men (later Brief Lives) was not published until 1813.
