        [Opera]. Ex Recensione & cum Notis Atque Emendationibus Richardi Bentleii

      Cambridge: [University Press], 1711 First edition. Contemporary calf, rebacked, preserving original spine, corners repaired, armorial bookplate of Toft Hall on front endpaper, above it early ownership inscription of Ralph Leycester. Two volumes bound in one, quarto. Fine engraved title by George Vertue (slightly stained). Bound with the half-titles. Letterpress titles with engraved vignettes. A very good copy of Bentley's celebrated edition of Horace, perhaps the finest edition of a classical text ever produced. Probably no other poet's works have been so often copied or printed, and hundreds of versions in every modern language have been made of the least translatable of poets.....Bentley was and remains the greatest of English classical scholars...His immense learning was combined with an equal control in its deployment. Although he here restricted himself entirely to criticism of the text, and refrained from comment or explanation, in fact his feeling for Horace is revealed in the seven or eight hundred emendations, many of which have found permanent acceptance. Bold yet sensitive, deeply learned and at the same time understanding, his edition is a compound, as Bentley was himself, of temerity, authority and subtlety" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 178).

Tagli rossi, sguardie marmorizzate policrome. Frontespizi in rosso e in nero con vignette calcografiche. Complessive 84 tavv. incise in rame f.t.: un ritratto dell'autore in ovale all'antiporta del primo vol., una carta della Persia e del Ponto Eusino ripiegata in principio del primo vol. e altre 82 tavv. ripiegate, talora di grandi dimensioni, con raffigurazioni di popolazioni, luoghi e monumenti persiani. Esemplare d'eccezione, con 6 tavole in più rispetto alle 78 indicate solitamente nelle bibliografie. Ex-libris nobiliari Sormani Andreani Verri. Qualche normale fioritura e brunitura e restauri alle cerniere di alcuni volumi; ottime condizioni complessive. Terza edizione, ma prima edizione completa (la prima edizione assoluta, ridotta rispetto a questa, risale al 1686) del celebre resoconto di viaggio in Persia dello Chardin. Lo Chardin (Parigi, 1643-Chiswick, 1713), che di professione era gioielliere e discendeva da una famiglia di Ugonotti, svolse il suo viaggio in Persia nel 1664, accompagnato dal mercante lionese Antoine Raisin, allo scopo in parte di acquistarvi gemme preziose e in parte per appagare il proprio desiderio di viaggiare. Il viaggio, che valse allo Chardin il patrocinio del monarca safavide Shah Abbas II e di suo figlio Safi Mirza, fruttò una gran messe di osservazioni di ogni genere e lo condusse sino in India; il viaggio fu ripetuto nel 1671, compiendo un avventuroso tragitto attraverso la Turchia, Crimea, il Caucaso, la Mingrelia e la Georgia e raggiungendo Isfahan solo nel 1673. Lo Chardin rimase in Persia sino al 1677, tornando nuovamente in India e tornando in Europa nel 1680 dopo aver doppiato il Capo di Buona Speranza. Riparato in Inghilterra a motivo della sua fede protestante e delle persecuzioni cui i riformati furono sottoposti in tale paese, divenne in seguito gioielliere di corte di Carlo II a Londra. Trasferitosi poi in Olanda, dopo alcuni anni fece stabilmente ritorno in Inghilterra; alla sua morte venne sepolto nell'Abbazia di Westminster. I suoi "Voyages", fra le più celebri relazioni mai scritte di viaggio in Persia, ammirati da Montesquieu come da Voltaire, da Gibbon come da Rousseau, costituiscono una fonte storica ed etnografica di eccezionale importanza. Nella voce dedicata allo Chardin nell'Encyclopaedia Iranica, John Emerson nota come le informazioni raccolte dal viaggiatore francese sulla Persia safavide superino di gran lunga quelle fornite da tutti gli altri scrittori occidentali per estensione, profondità ed accuratezza. "Chardin?s massive work, along with many other accounts of travel to exotic lands, contributed to formation of one of the great streams of European knowledge leading to what Paul Hazard called ?la crise de la conscience européenne? and hence to the Enlightenment. Some of his ideas, for example, on the influence of climate on man, had a considerable impact, and his work was read and commented on favorably by a number of great 18th-century figures like Charles-Louis de Montesquieu, Edward Gibbon, Vol­taire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and William Jones." (Emerson). Atabey, 219. Chahine, 912. Brunet, I, 1802: "Ce Voyage est un des plus intéressants que l'on ait publiés dans le siècle dernier. L'édition que nous citons est assez belle, et les exemplaires bien conditionnées en sont peu commun". Emerson, cit. Giuseppe Caraci in Enciclopedia Italiana, IX, 936: "La prima edizione completa fu stampata ad Amsterdam nel 1711". . Ghani, pp 70-73. Diba, p. 238. Schwab, 87. Wilson, p. 40.

        Tanckar och anmärckningar öfwer desse tijders pestilentia.

      Sthlm, J. H. Werner, 1711. 8:o. (2),62 s. Bra men lätt solkigt pergamentsartat pappbd med röd titeletikett i skinn på främre pärmen. Ett samtida marmorerat omslag medbundet. Genomgående med mycket svag fuktrand nedtill. Med L. Wallins överstrukna namnteckning på titelbladet.. Waller 5839. Johan Linder (1678-1724, adlad Lindestolpe 1719) kom från ett fattigt hem men hans fallenhet för studier gjorde honom snart bemärkt och han steg i graderna. Internationell ryktbarhet vann han genom sin doktorsavhandling i Harderwijk i Holland 1707, vilken behandlar veneriska sjukdomar. Linder var bl.a. medicus i svenska flottan och brunnsläkare vid Viksbergs brunn i Salem men utgav även arbeten om textilfärgning och en del tillfällighetsverser. Under sin tjänstgöring i flottan gjorde han praktiska erfarenheter av den grasserande pestepidemien vilket kom att resultera i föreliggande arbete. Linder diskuterar vädrets betydelse för sjukdomens uppkomst men hävdar frankt att det "har altijd warit och ännu är min tancka/ at mer än hälfften af de menniskior/ som genom pestfebrer döö/ döö af bara inbillning och räddhoga för pesten."

        An Account of Several Late Voyages and Discoveries:

      London: Printed for D. Brown, W. Innys, and T. Ward, , 1711. I. Sir John Narbrough's Voyage to the South-Sea… II. Captain J. Tasman's Discoveries on the Coast of South Terra Incognita. III. Captain J. Wood's Attempt to Discover a North-East Passage to China. IV. F. Marten's Observations made in Greenland... Octavo (190 ×114 mm). Contemporary panelled calf , neatly rebacked, vermilion morocco label to the spine, raised bands. 3 folding maps and 19 engraved plates, 7 of them folding. Contemporary armorial bookplate of George Tollett, (1696-1727?), of Betley Hall, Staffordshire verso of the title page. Slightly rubbed, corners restored, light browning, the folding maps with splits professionally restored. Second edition, preferred over the first edition "because it has the chart of the western and southern oceans" (Hill). In 1699, Narbrough sailed onboard the Batchelour as part of a commission to find a western opening for the north-west passage and to explore the west coast of the Americas. This account is "of particular interest because of its description of Narbrough's passage in the Batchelour through the Strait of Magellan and into the South Pacific to Chile, which was much read by later navigators, [Narbrough being credited with] one of the first scientific studies of the indigenous population [and] inaugurating an era of research in southern South America that would last for a further two centuries" (Howgego). Also included is Abel Janzoon Tasman's account of his famous voyage of 1642, during which he discovered Tasmania and New Zealand and visited Tonga and Fiji. George Tollet was accountant general for Ireland, and was commissioner of the Navy at the time of Narbrough's voyage; he was a friend of both Samuel Pepys and Sir Isaac Newton.

      Engraved allegorical vignette on title by Nutting incorporating a portrait of Newton as the source of light, two folding engraved tables, numerous engravings in the text, and several engraved head- & tailpieces. 7 p.l., 101 pp. 4to, very good antique mottled calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: Pearson, 1711. First edition of one of the great books of science and a famous rarity. This book contains Newton's first independent treatise on higher mathematics and his first account of one of his three great contributions to science, the invention of calculus. It also contains the first printed account of his equally significant discovery of the binomial theorem. This work must be considered alongside his Principia of 1687 (Horblit 78) and Opticks of 1704 (Horblit 79) as demonstrating his extraordinary achievements in mathematics, physics, and optics respectively. This work contains De Analysi per Aequationes Numero Terminorum Infinitas (written in 1669 and published here for the first time; it contains the first printed account of the binomial theorem); two treatises first published in the Opticks but written in 1693 and 1695; Methodus differentialis (written in 1676 and published here for the first time; it is the basis of the calculus of finite differences); and a letter from Newton to Collins, written November 8th, 1676. A few minor stains but a very nice copy of by far the rarest of Newton's great books. ❧ Babson 207. Horblit 66b. .

        The works of William Drummond, of Hawthornden. Consisting of those which were formerly printed, and those which were design'd for the press. Now published from the author's original copies

      Printed: 1711 Folio, . First collected edition [4],xlv,[3],243,[1];iv,60p.,plates : ports. ; 20. William Drummond is the last significant figure in Scottish poetry before the Eighteenth Century. The gap between him and Alan Ramsay indicates a crisis in Scottish literary culture brought on by the departure of the Scottish court to London with the accession of James VI of Scotland to the throne of Great Britain. James had been a patron of poets, dabbled in poetry himself and delivered himself of Rewellis and Cautelis [Do's and Don'ts] for its composition. Not only had the court been a centre of literary activity where men of letters such as Drummond's uncle, William Fowler, and his friend William Alexander of Menstrie, later Earl of Stirling, gained employment, it had also given authority to Scots as a literary language. These conditions were now abolished. Poets who had published their work in Scots, followed James in revising it and publishing it in English, and Drummond, who did not go south with the court, was left in a state of cultural bereavement. He made a lot of that melancholy state. He became a poet of retreat and death, like Henry Vaughan during the Interregnum. Drummond was born in 1585, the eldest son of John Drummond, descended through a cadet branch from the Drummonds of Stobhall, Lords Drummond of that ilk since 1471, and of Susannah Fowler, daughter of a well-connected Edinburgh burgess. John Drummond acquired the property of Hawthornden, where the North Esk runs through a romantic gorge near Dalkeith, and was made gentleman usher at the court of James VI in 1590. William Drummond was educated at the High School in Edinburgh and at Edinburgh University, where he graduated MA in 1605. He completed his education by travelling to France, visiting Paris and studying law at Bourges. On the way out and on his return in 1609, he stayed in London. He became laird of Hawthornden on the death of his father in 1610 and thereafter seldom left his estate, where he dedicated himself to literary pursuits, accumulating an excellent library and rebuilding the house as a Scots baronial mansion. Like everyone else he published a lament on the death of Prince Henry in 1613, "Teares on the Death of Moeliades". Poems followed in 1614; most of these were included and revised in the 1616 edition, whose first part is a celebration of a love for Auristella and the second a mourning of her death. The "Teares" for Prince Henry is included and there are additional madrigals and epigrams, but the main body of the collection is a two part series of sonnets and songs like Sir Philip Sidney's Astrophil to Stella and Sir William Alexander's Aurora. Drummond was a late practitioner of the Petrarchan sonnet sequence in English, but he worked in phrases and ideas of the French and Italian masters of late petrarchism. Marino was an author he admired and imitated. The language he writes in is not the Scots he spoke but a literary English, as correct as he could learn to make it from reading books. His art aims at refined sweetness both in versification and in the preciosity of his reworking and tinkering with petrarchan imagery. The landscape of his love-melancholy is a solitary and Arcadian Midlothian. On this colde World of Ours, Flowre of the Seasons, Season of the Flowrs, Sonne of the Sunne sweet Spring, Such hote and burning Dayes why doest thou bring? (Madrigal vi, ll. 1-4, Poems, Part 1) The love affair he writes about so artificially has a very oblique relation to his life. His Auristella has at least some connection with Euphemia Cunningham, who lived by the Ore, or Ora as he has it, in Fife. Like Poe, Drummond seems to have felt that the death of a beautiful woman was the best subject for poetry and Euphemia Cunningham did her best for him in this respect. Only a year after he had completed the Poems that end in mourning her literary epiphany. Religion was another source of melancholy interiority that he exploited; he expanded the divine poems of the 1616 collection and brought them out as Flowres of Sion in 1623. The volume includes his prose meditation on death, The Cypresse Grove. In 1617, James visited Scotland, and joining in the public rejoicing, Drummond published "Forth Feasting" to celebrate the occasion. Drummond's Poems were a success. He had already made the acquaintance of Alexander in 1614 on a chance visit to his house in Menstrie; he records the hospitality and literary chat in an attractive letter. Through Alexander, he struck up an epistolary friendship with Michael Drayton; and Ben Jonson visited him in the summer of 1618, having walked up to Hawthornden from London. The notes of his talk are among the best things Drummond wrote. In the years after the death of Euphemia Cunningham, Drummond kept a mistress by whom he had three illegitimate children. In 1632 he married Elizabeth Logan, and by her had nine legitimate ones. He wrote a welcome for the visit of Charles I to Scotland in 1633, but his literary activity had dwindled. He wrote an essay on impresas and anagrams and some coarse satirical squibs and epigrams, which display an interesting obverse to the aesthetic refinement of the poetry he is most known for. He followed the Scottish virtuoso, John Napier of Merchiston, in thinking up machines for the destruction of mankind or improvements on those already in use and applied for a patent in 1626. In later years he began to compile an uninteresting royalist History of Scotland. The Bishops' Wars between Charles I and the Scots Presbyterians and the involvement of the Covenant in the politics of the English Civil War stirred Drummond to write political tracts against the Covenanters, notably Irene in response to the promulgation of the National Covenant of 1638 and Skiamachia in support of the Cross Petition to the Scottish Parliament against moves for an alliance with the English Parliamentarians. He did not publish them but they probably circulated in manuscript. Too literary, written in too elaborate and beautifully modulated a style to engage effectively in the cut and thrust of Civil War polemic, they nevertheless make shrewd points about the contradictions in which the Covenanters had involved themselves. Here is his address in Irene to the Covenanting churchmen who meddle in politics: Yee lightes of the World, examples of Holiness and all Vertues, you living libraryes of Knowledge, Sanctuarryes of Goodnesse, looke upon the weaknesse and fragilitie of Mankynd! The Bodyes of Common wealthes are alreddye turned in Skeletones, the Cityes in Sepulcheres, the fieldes in Shambles, the Trees in Gibbetes. Pittye humaine Race, spare the blouud of Man: the earth is druncke with it, the Watteres empurpled, the aire empoysoned, and all by you, for, who give advice and counsell for the performing of evill actiones, cause them, and doe these actiones themselves: and they who command them and approve them when done are beyond he actores guilty Drummond died "of a sort of gravell", harassed by debt and distressed by the execution of his King in 1649. The non-juring bishop, John Sage, brought out an edition of his works in 1711, which, along with the poems, includes some of his letters, his history of Scotland and not very reliable versions of the political works. Lowndes, p. 675. who reports that Ben Jonson thought of Drummond as a 'Scotian Petrarch'

        Ã†sop naturaliz'd: in a collection of fables and stories from Æsop, Locman, Pilpay, and others

      London: printed for D. Midwinter, 1711 Contemporary sheep, neatly rebacked, reddish-brown morocco spine label. . Octavo. Some abrasion on back cover, but a near very good, appealing copy. With ink annotation on front free endpaper with the dates 1723 and 1726. Third edition, "with the addition of above 50 fables." The genesis of this book appears to be a volume published in Cambridge in 1697, with 111 pages and containing one hundred fables; Foxon cites an entry in the Term Catalogues for a second edition "corrected," in 1702, but no copy of this is known. This third edition is, as Foxon puts it, "a radical revision," so much so that it is essentially a new book, in which there are now 180 fables, with each consisting of the fable itself, followed by a moral, all in verse. Many of the fables are familiar from antiquity, such as "The Tortoise and the Hare," "The Fox and the Grapes," "The Country Mouse and the City Mouse," or "The Peacock and Juno." The source of many others is less obvious, and the verses have often been adapted to reflect daily life in the early 18th century. In a three-page preface, the compiler makes it clear that his book is intended for an unsophisticated audience: "If these fables are acceptable in prose, they cannot be less acceptable in verse; but more pleasing and more easie to be apprehended and remembered; as will be evident if we reflect how easily children and persons of mean capacity apprehend a story or fable, how deep the impression is fix'd in their memories, and how early it takes root, before such persons have any relish for dry jejune moral truths, represented without such advantages.

      Christian Petzold Amsterdam Christian Petzold 1711 First edition g 12mo. 5pp. (12). 544pp. 3/4 vellum over decorated paper-covered boards with brown handwritten lettering to spine. Scuffing, abrasions and discoloration to boards and spine. All maroon page edges. 2 Ex libris- plates pasted-in on front endpaper: 1) Ex libris Rev. Joseph Jaquett. Presented by Edwin Jaquett Sellers. 1902. 2) Library of the Protestant Episcopal Divinity School, Philadelphia. Perforation to title page: "Philadelphis Divinity School." Signature and date to title page: "Joseph Jaquette. June 20th. 1825." Some age browning and welling to pages not affecting text. Magnificent translation of one of the tracates of the "Mishne Torah," a code of Jewish law by one of the most important Jewish authorities, Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, better known as Maimonides or by the Hebrew abbreviation RaMBaM (1135-1204). The Mishneh Torah was compiled between 1170 and 1180, while he was living in Egypt, and is regarded as Maimonides' magnum opus. This tractate deals with the "Parah aduma" or red cow aka red heifer, a cow that is sacrificed and whose ashes are used for the ritual purification of people who came into contact with a corpse. In Hebrew and Latin. Overall in good condition. R. Moses Maimonides (Rambam) was a 12th century Jewish philosopher and halachic legal scholar. A highly controversial figure, both during his lifetime and after his death, but generally acknowledged as the preeminent Jewish thinker of the Middle Ages. He was born in CÛrdoba, Spain but fled as a child from the Almohad persecution. He eventually settled in Egypt where he served as a rabbi, physician and philosopher. His fourteen-volume Mishneh Torah, his only work not in Arabic, still carries canonical authority, particularly within the Yemenite Jewish community, as the codification of Talmudic law. His other work includes a commentary on the Mishnah entitled Kitab al-Siraj, Kitab al-Fara'I, a book on precepts, and the philosophical work Dalalat al-Ha'irin, known in Hebrew as the Moreh Nevukhim, The Guide to the Perplexed. The major premise is an attempted philosophical/theological reconciliation of the Hebrew Bible and Greek knowledge. This work came to play a central role in all subsequent major controversies over philosophy within the Jewish community during the Middle Ages.
