        A Treatise of the Hypochondriack and Hysterick Passions, Vulgarly call'd the Hypo in Men and Vapours in Women; in which the Symptoms, Causes, and Cure of those Diseases are set forth after a Method entirely new. The whole interspers'd, with Instructive Discourses on the Real Art of Physick it self; and Entertaining Remarks on the Modern Practice of Physicians and Apothecaries: Very useful to all, that have the Misfortune to stand in need of either. In Three Dialogues

      London, Dryden Leach and W. Taylor, 1711.. 8°, Originallederband mit bildgeprägter Verzierung, neuer Rücken mit modernem Rückenschild, XXIV, 280 S.. Sehr seltene EA! First edition! NORMAN 1432: "Possibly the first psychiatric self-help book". HUNTER/MACALPINE 296: "the first book on minor mental maladies 'writ by way of information to patients' rather than 'to teach other practitioners', and to make what he had to say palatable". Mandeville (geb. 1670 in oder in der Nähe von Rotterdam, gestorben 1733 in London) ist sehr berühmt geworden wegen seiner "Bienenfabel" (1714). "Über M.s Leben ist nur wenig bekannt. Nach dem Besuch der Erasmus-Schule in Rotterdam schrieb sich M. 1685 an der Universität von Leyden als Student der Philosophie ein, legte 1689 seine Dissertation in Philosophie vor und erhielt 1691 nach der Abfassung einer medizinischen Studie den Grad eines Doktors der Medizin. Ende der neunziger Jahre faßte M. dann den Entschluß, sich in England niederzulassen, das seiner Meinung nach die Spitze der europäischen Zivilisation verkörperte" (Biographisch-Bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon, Bd. V, 1933). In diesem Buch wählt er den Dialog zwischen Arzt ("Misomedon") und Patientin ("Polytheca") als Darstellungsform. Amüsant der Dialog über die Frage, weshalb die Medikamente solche merkwürdigen Namen bekommen, die auch ein Latein- und Griechischkundiger nicht versteht: man kann sie dann leichter für mehr Geld verkaufen! (p. 231f.)

        An Essay on Criticism

      W. Lewis and sold by W. Taylor, T. Osborn and J. Graves, London 1711 - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of Pope's first major poem; one of the most oft-quoted works in the English language. In fine 19th-century signed Riviere & Son binding. "To err, is human, to forgive divine" "Fools rush in where angels fear to tread" "A little learning is a dangerous thing" "First published anonymously on 15 May 1711 as a quarto of forty-eight pages. The main publisher was William Lewis, and 1,000 copies were printed? The Essay expresses for the most part orthodox neoclassic doctrine as this had evolved in France and England, but it performs this task with unparalleled brilliance and élan. Pope's aim lay not so much in novelty of ideas as in the sparkle and compression of their embodiment in poetry? Pope's treatment of topics such as wit has proved of lasting importance in the history and theory of criticism" (The Alexander Pope Encyclopedia). Griffith's first issue, with four booksellers' names on the title page. With the extremely rare half-title; without the ad leaf that is almost always lacking in first issue copies. (Griffith believed that the ad leaf was probably not issued with the earliest copies.) Provenance: From the library of John A. Spoor, Chicago railroad and banking magnate known as the "J. Pierpont Morgan" of the mid-west whose famous and extensive collection of first editions was sold at Parke-Bernet Galleries in 1939; with his bookplate. Also with handsome bookplates of the book collector Chares Lilburn and legendary art and antiques collector Mrs. J. Insley Blair. London: Printed for W. Lewis and sold by W. Taylor, T. Osborn and J. Graves, 1711. Quarto, nineteenth-century full crushed morocco by Riviere & Son with gilt-tooled boards and gilt-decorated spine; uncut. Small scuff to rear board, repair to upper joint; a little browning to title, but text generally very clean with very wide margins. A beautiful copy. RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Reflections on Mr. Wall's History of Infant-BaptismIn Several Letters to a Friend

      London - Darby8 by 5; [xxx]547[12]pp., 1711 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An ardent and diligent voice in the 18th-century theological debate on baptism. John Gale (1680-1721) was a baptist, educated at the Universities of Leyden (where he recieved a doctorate in philosophy aged 19) and Amsterdam (where he was a student of Limborch). After returning to England, Gale assisted various ministries but never took Holy Orders or led his own congregation. This work is a vigorious critcism of William Halls 'History of Infant Baptism,' in the form of 13 letters to a friend. The published compendium was widely acclaimed for its virtuosity (even by those who disagreed with it) and earned a baleful reply from Wall, who declared that 'Reproaches' would have been a more appropriate title than 'Reflections. 'Condition: Externally, bound inold calf with worn corners. Chipped spine with contrasting label and gilt '4' (though volume complete in itself), split frontjoint. Internally, firmly bound. Slightly grubby and foxed throughout, with bookplate of Professor David Arthur Pailin anddamaged label of T.

        Eigentliche und wahrhafftige Abbildung der alten und neuen Griechischen Kirche, Nach ihrer Historie, Glaubens-Lehren und Kirchen-Gebräuchen

      Leipzig: Joh. Friedrich Gleditsch und Sohn, 1711. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Three parts in one thick volume with an appendix and an index. 4to. [21.5 x 17 cm], engraved portrait frontispiece, [22], including title printed in red and black, 236, 422, 474, 84, [56] p., with 16 additional engraved plates and one woodcut vignette. Bound in contemporary stiff vellum, covers a bit soiled, spine spotted. Some minor fingersoiling on title and light even toning throughout, but generally a fresh copy, with good impressions of the plates. Scarce first and only edition of the first full-fledged study of the Greek Orthodox Church, extensively illustrated, and an important addition to the nascent German tradition of studying the history of religious traditions without partisan intent. Of particular interest for the theological underpinnings of church architecture. Heineccius was a Lutheran, and he pursues his object of study as an antiquarian and historian, not as a controversialist. The work deals with the foundation and early history of the church as well as contemporary religious practice, treating such topics as the calendar, architecture and ecclesiastical ranks and dress. Organized in three parts, the first covers early history; the second theology; and third contemporary practice. The numerous plates picture architectural ground-plans for churches, ecclesiastical accoutrements, costume, and a bird's-eye view of the patriarch's residence at Constantinople. Johann Michael Heineccius (1674-1722) was a well-known jurist, historian, preacher, and theologian, originally Dutch but living in Halle. Best known for the present work, he also made one of the first systematic study of seals (De veteribus Germanorum aliarumque nationum sigillis, 1710). * OCLC record.

        Letter signed.

      "Elbing", 6. XI. 1711. - 4to. 2 pp. In the present letter to Field Marshal Count Sheremetev, Peter I shows the extent to which he involved himself in military affairs, giving both tactical and strategic orders. One order is for a small unit action and the other for the garrisoning of larger bodies; both were to be tied to international events to provide "disinformation" to the enemy. This demonstrates how Peter the Great was able to think both tactically and strategically at the same time. Peter I orders Sheremetev to move the Cossack troops to the opposite bank of the Dnieper and to destroy their dwellings. He instructs that seized troops are to be garrisoned at the fortress, but in order to misinform the Turks, rumors should be circulated that it is Menshikov's hired men who are settled there. The Polish senators should be told that the troops are garrisoned at the fortress provisionally until the King of Sweden is at Turkey. The Field Marshal is also asked not to stay in Poland too long. As to his request to be sent troops stationed at Riga for the winter, Peter advises that this will be impossible. - At the time this letter was written, Russia was at war with two countries - Sweden, since 1700, over Baltic territories, and Turkey, since 1710. Peter I directed most of the wars himself and also took part in some of the campaigns. Russia was victorious over the Turks in 1713, and over Sweden in 1721. - Numerals in red ink at foot of second page; browning, margin reinforced, some spotting. - Letters signed by Peter the Great are extremely rare.

        An Account of Several Late Voyages and Discoveries: I. Sir John Narbrough's Voyage to the South-Sea... II. Captain J. Tasman's Discoveries on the Coast of the 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, and other Northern Countries...to which are added, a large introduction and supplement, containing short abstracts of other voyages into those parts, and brief descriptions of them

      London: printed for D. Brown, J. Round, W. Innys and T. Ward, 1711. Octavo. (7 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches). 3 large folding engraved maps, 19 engraved plates (7 folding). (Two images with flags of ships with early hand- colouring). Contemporary calf, covers panelled in blind, rebacked with the spine in six compartments with raised bands flanked by gilt rules, black morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment. An excellent copy of the second edition, which "is preferred because it has the chart of the western and southern oceans, which was not included in the first edition, and additional text relating to Greenland and to whales and whaling" (Hill). This work was originally published in 1694, and was probably edited by Sir Tancred Robinson. Hill describes this work as of particular importance for its account of the Straits of Magellan, much relied upon by the next generation of navigators, and says further: "The book is of the greatest importance to an Australian collection, as it contains one of the earliest English accounts of Abel Janszoon Tasman's famous voyage of 1642 from Batavia." Also contained herein are two important northern voyages, including Marten's account of whaling in the Greenland waters. Three of the folding plates depict whales and whaling, while the other plates depict indigenous birds, animals, and plants. Cox I, pp.8-9; Hill (2004) 1476; European Americana 711/183; Sabin 72186.

        Miscellaneous Poems and Translations [The Rape of the Lock]

      London: Printed for Bernard Lintott. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, containing the FIRST APPEARANCE of Pope's The Rape of the Lock. "The earliest version of Pope's mock heroic poem The Rape of the Lock, composed in a fortnight during summer 1711, had for nine months been anonymously printed in Bernard Lintot's Miscellany. The masterpiece of Pope's earlier period, The Rape of the Lock (1712, 1714) had its origin in a quarrel between two Catholic families, apparently over the provocative cutting off of a lock of hair by Lord Petre from the head of Arabella Fermor... "The poem... is far from being a mere social satire in which a trivial quarrel is mocked by being presented in epic terms. Indeed, by the time the poem has been thoughtfully read it is not really clear that the quarrel is trivial. The 'Heroi-Comical' in Pope's hands is a volatile mixture: some of its comedy rebounds on the epic conventions that are primarily deployed to mock the foolish and vain. In the shining lock of hair Pope contemplates beauty, reputation, conquest in love and war, anger, humour, and resignation. The political facets of the poem, parts only of the total multi-faceted effect, have recently come more into the light, so that the work has its own angle on historical change. Not only does the poem have many targets, all seen through the prism of Belinda and her lock, but it also has many tones, those of subtle comedy, outright farce, and lofty sadness" (DNB). Pope sold this 2-canto version to Lintott for 7 pounds in March 1712; in 1714 an expanded 5-canto version was issued. London: Printed for Bernard Lintott, 1712. Octavo, contemporary paneled calf rebacked. With engraved frontispiece and half-title. Some light marginal worming, light occasional dampstaining (not affecting Pope's verses). A handsome copy.

        ORDINUM EQUESTRIUM ET MILITARIUM CATALOGUS

      Romæ: Typis Georgii Plachi, 1711. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. With a Profusion of Costume Plates Depicting Knightly, Military, Social, and Charitable Orders. 248 x 191 mm (9 3/4 x 7 1/2"). 20 p.l. (including three title pages, one engraved, one in Latin, one in Italian), followed by plates with facing commentary and, at the end, two index leaves. FIRST EDITION. Excellent contemporary sprinkled calf, covers with border in gilt and blind, raised bands, spines handsomely gilt in compartments with large intricate fleuron centerpiece and scrolling cornerpieces, reddish-brown morocco label. WITH A TOTAL OF 167 FULL-PAGE ENGRAVED PLATES: a frontispiece showing Victory perched above military accoutrements, 143 plates (engraved by Giovanni Battista Sintes after Andrea Antonio Orazi) depicting members of various knightly orders in a variety of costumes (each plate facing a text leaf of explication in Latin and Italian), and 23 plates showing the insignia of the orders (usually with several figures on each of these plates). Bookplate of the Macclesfield library on front pastedown, first three leaves with small matching embossed armorial Macclesfield stamp. Brunet I, 1086; Graesse I, 480. Spine and joints with slight dryness and rubbing, several tiny marks to covers, a trivial spot here and there internally, but A REALLY EXCELLENT COPY, the attractive early binding solid and without any serious wear, and THE TEXT AND PLATES UNUSUALLY CLEAN AND FRESH. The illustrations here of members of various "knightly and military orders" are a wonderful source for the costumes of the early 18th century. The orders include not only genuine fighting orders such as the Templars and the Teutonic Knights, but all sorts of honorary, social, and charitable orders, so that some figures appear in suits of armor, others in clerical garb, and many in elaborate secular dress, decked out in the extravagant fashions of the day. Of the orders, 18 are for women, all elegantly costumed here, some suitably for the cloister, others for the ballroom. Perhaps the most exotic are a Roman member of the knightly (i.e., business) class, dressed, naturally, in a toga; a Turkish member of the Order of the Moon; a Peruvian; and a Floridian. The artist Andrea Orazi (b. 1670) painted in oils and frescoed two Roman churches. In addition to writing books on subjects ranging from coins to musical instruments to natural history, the learned Jesuit Buonanni (1638-1725) served as librarian of the Collegio Romano and in 1698 became curator of the Kircherian Musem.

      Paris: Michel David, 1711. Octavo, [6], 536, [8] pages. Frontispiece, five leaves of folding plates. Second printing of the first edition. Michel David issued the title originally in 1710. A compilation of two seventeenth century works by Nicolas de Bonnefons, here issued under a royal privilege granted to Louis Liger, sieur d'Auxerre (1658-1717). The work is divided into four books, the first three concerning cooking, the fourth dealing with gardening, and with an additional brief treatise on hunting and fishing. Liger's compilation of de Bonnefons' work continued to be revised and reissued after his death and well into the eighteenth century. And rightly so. De Bonnefons' work recognizes the primacy of excellent ingredients. The final section is considered to be the first work on the kitchen garden. John Evelyn, who translated the work in 1658, called it "the first and best work of that kind that introduced the use of the olitorie garden to any purpose." Contemporary full-calf, compartmented spine with gilt-tooled ornaments and title. Some wear to foot of spine and corners, and one leather chip absent from the rear panel. Several contemporary ownership inscriptions to endpapers, some signed "Drouilly". Inkblot to verso of frontispiece has penetrated, and is visible in the engraved image. Overall, near very good. [Bitting, pages 287-288; Cagle 285-85 (later editions); OberlŽ refers to the earlier publication of de Bonnefons' work, but not the Liger editions; Vicaire 522-523].

        [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).

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.

        [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).
