[Alf layla wa-layla - French].
8vo. 6 vols. (24), 312 pp. (8), 352 pp. (12), 322 pp. (12), 323, (1) pp. (6), 228 pp. (6), 456 pp. Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spines on five raised bands, gilt labels to spines, red sprinkled edges. The first six volumes of the original edition of the Arabian Nights, considered unobtainable in all twelve volumes as published by Antoine Galland from 1704 onwards. Of the utmost rarity: not a single copy of any of the original issues (even separate volumes or incomplete sets) traceable at auction or in the trade within the last decades; even the Bibliothèque nationale de France holds only an incomplete set (lacking vol. 3, cf. FRBNF33486572), while all but four (Univ. of Indiana, UCLA, Princeton, and Newberry) of the 91 entries in OCLC refer either to separate volumes or incomplete sets. The Newberry (OCLC 919637686) and Princeton copies seem to be identical with ours, describing the imprint as "Lyon, chez Antoine Briasson" dated 1709-17 (Princeton: 1706-20). The twelve volumes initially appeared over a period of 13 years, but due to their immense popularity the separately published volumes were reissued multiple times by their original three printers in Paris and Lyon, and so all known sets - complete or incomplete - are made up of various issues of the original edition. "With our present knowledge, we cannot distinguish those reissues or tell whether any real differences entered into them" (Macdonald, 388). Pirated editions, too, appeared at once in Holland; only in 1726 did a distinctive second edition appear in six volumes (Chauvin 21B: "recherchée en raison de … [Click Below for Full Description]

POLENI, Giovanni (1683-1761). -
Venezia, Pavino, 1709. In-4 (215 x 153 mm.). Solida legatura coeva in pelle marrone; piccole mancanze alle cuffie. Con 9 tavole ripiegate incise in rame. (8), 56 pp.; fresco esemplare. Edizione originale della prima opera del Poleni con la quale ottenne, a soli 26 anni, la cattedra di astronomia e meteore all'università di Padova. La Miscellanea è una raccolta di studi su svariati argomenti scientifici, tra cui i barometri, i termometri, e la descrizione di una "Machina arithmetica" di sua invenzione. Si tratta della prima macchina calcolatrice inventata e realizzata in Italia. Poleni sapeva delle calcolatrici realizzate da Pascal e da Leibniz nel secolo precedente, ma non ne conosceva il funzionamento, per cui ne progettò una del tutto nuova con "un meccanismo completamente diverso da quello utilizzato da Leibniz (...) ma l'idea forse più innovativa di Poleni consiste nel fatto che la macchina era costruita in modo da separare nettamente la parte di impostazione dei dati da quella del calcolo vero e proprio, cosa che ritroveremo praticamente in tutte le macchine progettate dal XIX secolo" (D. Casalegno, Uomini e computer, Storia delle macchine che hanno cambiato il mondo, pp.33-34). DSB XI, p.65. Riccardi II, 290. First edition of Poleni's first publication. It contains a description of his arithmetical calculating machine, which proved to be the first calculating machine with gears with a variable number of teeth (so called pin-wheel), a great improvement on the proto-computers of Pascal and Leibniz. The Miscellanea also includes dissertations on barometers, thermometer … [Click Below for Full Description]

I) L'Octavio de Minucio Félix, célèbre dialogue philosophique ou la dispute que soutient le païen Cecilio, le chrétien Octavio et l'auteur qui se présente avec le nom de Marcos. Dans ce dialogue il montre que la foi chrétienne peut se concilier avec la culture traditionnelle, notamment avec la philosophie : les grands philosophes ont été les précurseurs de la doctrine chrétienne et ont approché de la vérité sans y parvenir pleinement. II) Le traité de l'inutilité des idoles, de Cipriano un évêque de Carthage. III) Enfin, l'ouvrage finit avec l'oeuvre de Firmicio Materno sur les erreurs des religions profanes. Cette oeuvre essaie de convaincre de la supériorité du christianisme sur les "religions superstitieuses et licencieuses des païens".

Sacheverell, Henry)
[various imprints], London [mostly]. 21 pamphlets, 8vo. Bound together in contemporary sprinkled calf, ruled in blind, morocco label to spine (reading 'Pamphlets Vol. III'), manuscript table of contents to front endpapers. Paper of variable quality with some browning and spotting, one pamphlet with a small wormtrack in blank margin, a few small stains and edge-tears. Binding a little rubbed at extremities, slightly marked, spine darkened. Early inscription to title-page of first work. A contemporary pamphlet collection relating to religious controversies, primarily the impeachment of Henry Sacheverell (1674-1724) after his November 5th sermon which compared dissenters to Catholics, denying the accepted comparison between the Glorious Revolution and the failure of the Gunpowder Plot. Among the texts are the two sermons for which Sacheverell was impeached, the speeches he made during the impeachment, Gilbert Burnet's response to the impeachment and reponses to that, and further reflections on Sacheverell's sermons by other authors. The collection then moves to Roger Maynwaring (1589-1653), who had been impeached by the House of Commons in 1628 for preaching in favour of the royal prerogative; these are reprints contemporary to Sacheverell, to whom Maynwaring is compared on one title-page. The last few pamphlets pick up the argument between Offspring Blackall (1655-1716), Bishop of Exeter, and Benjamin Hoadly (1676-1761) over their understanding of the validity of the Glorious Revolution and resistance to a reigning sovereign, with contributions by the Iris … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALLEMONT, Pierre Le Lorrain de
Paris: Jean Boudot. 1709. 12mo. Contemporary full brown morocco, spine with gilt raised bands, centre tools and red morocco gilt lettering piece; pp. [xii] + 422 + 34 + [7], engraved frontispiece and 23 plates; binding a little rubbed, very good. Provenance: front pastedown with bookplate of Edward Andrade (1887-1971), British physicist and poet. He is best known in scientific circles for his work with Ernest Rutherford on the wavelengths of gamma rays, proving that they were shorter and higher in energy than X-rays. He was also a popular broadcaster, becomign famous for his role on BBC Radio's The Brains Trust during the 1940s. Second French edition. The work was first published in 1693 in Paris with a second edition published in Amsterdam in 1696; this edition follows the Dutch version. This is the first French work on the divining rod, detailing how can help in the discovery of water, mines, treasure chests, thieves and murderers on the run. It is illustrated with some attractive engravings of divining techniques as well as scientific instruments and astrological charts. The author, better known as the Abbé de Vallemont (1649-1721), was a serious physicist who wrote works on magnetism and Copernican astronomy. While the science behind dowsing is, at best, questionable, Vallemont does display a rather modern conception of particles, contending that 'atoms' rose from subterranean water, hidden treasures and people that were so small that they were unaffected by wind and could be detected at some distance.

Large 8vo, bound into protective wraps, with tipped on title label to the upper cover. [79]pp. paginated within the Rowe text. A fine and well preserved copy. The text clean and sound. An excellent copy of this highly important printing, which represents a number of "firsts": the first octavo printing, the first illustrated edition, the first scholarly edition, the first eighteenth century edition, the first to introduce act and scene divisions where they had been lacking in the folio editions, the first manual edition, from the first collection to present a biography of the poet, the first to bear an editor's name and from the first complete collection of the works available other than the said four folios. To quote Colin Franklin, who so eloquently discusses the eighteenth century editions in his book, SHAKESPEARE DOMESTICATED (1991), "This remains a very attractive reading edition, witness to Tonson's first intention in planning it. To that extent and for its innovations Jaggard the bibliographer's comment is true: 'In importance and interest this edition ranks second perhaps to the editio princeps.'
