        Secret Memoirs and Manners Of several Persons of Quality, Of Both Sexes. From the New Atalantis, An Island in the Mediteranean. Written Originally in Italian. The Second Edition.

      Printed: 1709. 1663-1724 Two octavo volumes, 7.5 x 4.5 inches. Second edition of the volume one; first edition of the second part. I: A4, B-Q8, R4; II: A-S8. (A8 is blank and present in this copy.) Volume one has the remains of a bookplate of Elizabeth Chaworth. Volume two has the engraved allegorical frontispiece. Both volumes are bound in matching full contemporary calf, a little cracking at the joints but the boards are still holding on. Of Mrs. Manley's life we know even less than that of Mrs. Behn, for our chief source of information is her own 'account of her life and times,' which contains more fiction than fact. We do know, however, that she was born in 1663, and lived most of her disreputable life in and about London, supporting herself by writing scurrilous articles, indecent plays, and scandalous stories. Her father, Sir Roger Manley, was associated in some mysterious way with the Turkish Spy, so that Mrs. Manley may be said to have been predisposed in favor of pseudo-historical compilations of political and social gossip. [.] In 1709, she published the notorious Secret Memoirs and Manners, in which she combined the secret-memoir and the ideal commonwealth. For this scandalous attack on the Whigs, she was arrested, and not discharged until 1710. So popular had it proved,however, that Mrs. Manley was induced to write continuations under various titles." (Charlotte Morgan, The Rise and Fall of the Novel of Manners) "Manley was taken into custody nine days after the publication of the second volume of 'Secret Memories and Manners,' on 29 October 1709. She apparently surrendered herself after John Morphew, John Woodward and the printer John Barber had been detained. Four days later the latter were discharged, but Manley remained in custody until 5 November when she was released on bail. After several continuations of the case, she was tried and discharged on 13 February 1710. [Manley's autobiography,] Rivella, provides the only account of the case itself in which Manley claims she defended herself on grounds that her information came by 'inspiration' and rebuked her judges for bringing 'a woman to her trial for writing a few amorous trifles.' This and the first volume which appeared in May 1709 were "romans a clef" with separately printed keys. Each offered a succession of narratives of seduction and betrayal by notorious Whig grandees to Astrea, an allegorical figure of justice, by largely female narrators, including an allegorical figure of Intelligence and a midwife. In Rivella, Manley claims that her trial led her to conclude that 'politics is not the business of a woman' and that thereafter she turned exclusively to stories of love." (Ros Ballaster)

        Johan Spencers sinnrike betänkiande om allehanda widunder och beydande tekn/ hwaruti theras förebådelses fåfängia bewises och förkastas/ och theras egentelige art och egenskap utmärkes/ utur ängelskan öfwersatt och i korthet sammandraget så ock med höga wederbörandes tillåtelse efter föregången censur utgifwit af Magnus Gabriel Block.

      Sthlm, O. Enæo, 1709. 4:o. (24),74,(1) s. & 1 grav. plansch. Titelbladet tryckt i rött och svart. Ljusbrunt lackat hfrbd med upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerad rygg, röd titeletikett och marmorerade snitt (Hedberg). Ryggen och övre delen av främre pärm blekta samt med en fläck nedtill på frampärmens ytterfals där det också är en liten spricka. Fin inlaga med några enstaka obetydliga fläckar. Ett litet hål med bokstavsförlust på s. 45 och den sista opaginerade sidan med några gamla lagningar. E. Sandells exlibris.. Planschen, signerad J. Spiegelberg, avbildar Blocks förklaring till varför Andreas Spole under en resa kunnat se hela Visingsö och Visingsborgs slott speglad i Vättern fast ön vid tillfället varit helt skymd av Omberg! Med tryckt dedikation till C. G. Renskiöld och A. L. Lejonhuwud samt ett förord i vilket Block varnar för vidskepliga tolkningar av ovanliga händelser i naturen med flera hänvisningar till antika historier. Block skriver också att de "förfarnaste medicus ofta öfwerträffas/ åt minstone uti gemena mans tycke och inbildning/ af en fåkunnig landstrykare/ och enfaldig qwinsperson/ som uppå en timas tid kan hafwa lärt någon naturens hemlighet och thessmedelst undertiden förrättar märkeliga curer, til then klokaste läkares förundran; hwar utaf man nu för tiden har ett friskt exempel i Stockholm uti then mycket utropade döpte juden Christian Bell, som til sin profession är en judisk slacktare/ och aldrig lärt läkare-konsten/ men tilltror sig likwäl at curera alla siukdomar/ ehwad namn the ock hafwa kunna/ med et ringa pulver giort af bränd klappersten och et algement mineraliskt salt/ thet han kokar med patientens urin". Ett allmänt rykte sa dock att patienter prövat att använda enbart urin utan kostbara tillsatser och att effekten blivit exakt densamma. I noter till texten hänvisar översättaren till aktuell litteratur och omtalar intressanta svenska exempel på de järtecken som Spencer avhandlar. Arbetet är en översättning av John Spencers (1630-93) "A discourse against prophesies" som utkommit första gången 1663 och som därefter trycktes i flera upplagor. Magnus Gabriel Block (1669-1722) hade många strängar på sin lyra, han talade bl.a. elva språk, var utbildad läkare och en flitig författare. Han kämpade hårt mot tidens villfarelser, t.ex. mot astrologi, Nostradamus profetior och liknande företeelser
