      [London? ca. 1713].. Broadsheet, 15 x 11 inches. [1]p., plus printed docket title on verso. Ornamental initial. Dbd. Early folds and early stab holes in left margin. Small portion of inner margin excised, with no loss to text. Mild foxing. Very good. Richard Jones, 3rd Viscount and 1st Earl of Ranelagh (1641- 1712), was an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, Irish politician, and Member of Parliament in the English House of Commons (his peerage was Irish, which did not disqualify him) from 1685 to 1703. In 1702, discrepancies were discovered in his accounts as paymaster-general of the army; his resignation from that position was interpreted as an admission of guilt, and he was expelled from Parliament in 1703 and convicted of "defalcations to the amount of 72,000l" (DNB). The scandalous nature of Ranelagh's life in both political and personal realms led the DNB to note: "Perhaps the only redeeming feature in Ranelagh's character was the unaffected pleasure he took in building and gardening." He helped design and build the structures and gardens of an architecturally celebrated pair of estates in Chelsea and Cranborne Chase, near Windsor. In the present leaflet, advocates of Ranelagh's two granddaughters, Margaret and Frances Coningsby, petition Parliament to ensure that, if any property remain from Ranelagh's estates after being sold to pay off his substantial debts, it be given to them, as per his wish. A scarce and early example of lobbying literature, which first began proliferating during the major changes in British government in the mid-1710s. ESTC records copies at four locations in the United Kingdom and one in the United States, the University of Kansas. DNB X, pp.1042-4.

[4], 82, [2] pp.. 1713 First edition of the second portion of one of the best-known responses to Anthony Collins's landmark Discourse of Free-Thinking.

        Demonstration de l'existence de Dieu tirée de la connoissance de la nature EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: Chez jacques Etienne, 1713. Fine. Chez jacques Etienne, à Paris 1713, Pet. in-8 (9,5x16,5cm), relié. - First edition, scarce Binding in full burgundy morocco signed XIXth Chambrolle mid-Duru. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare. La démonstration de l'existence de Dieu tirée de ses attributs [...] parue en 1718 comme une seconde partie n'est en réalité pas une seconde partie. Extraite des manuscrits de Fénelon, cette oeuvre inachevée est en effet antérieure à la Demonstration de l'existence de Dieu tirée de la connoissance de la nature, elle ne repose que sur des fragments d'un projet. En juxtaposant ultérieurement les deux parties, les éditeurs publient en fait deux oeuvres différentes, écrites à des périodes différentes. Reliure en plein maroquin bordeaux glacé fin XIXe signée Chambrolle-Duru. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Titre et date dorés. Riche frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. infimes traces de frottements au mors supérieur. très bel exemplaire, parfaitement établi. La Démonstration est à la fois une oeuvre philosophique et une oeuvre théologique. Fénelon s'adresse à des esprits forts, ou à des esprits chrétiens dont la foi reposerait sur la raison ; il emprunte ainsi son argumentation à une apologétique de type cartésien. L'idée maîtresse étant que le spectacle de la nature donne à voir l'activité du créateur, fénelon mettant en parallèle l'ordre et l'harmonie du monde à celui de l'action divine, réenchantant ainsi la vision mécaniciste du corps et de l'âme. En outre faute d'une cause commune à l'âme, aux animaux, à l'univers même, l'homme serait ainsi directement confronté à l'existence divine.

      Paris: Chez Francois Fourneir, Avec Privilege de sa Majeste, 1713.. Four items bound in one volume. 117,[2]; 80; 43,[1]; 23pp. Quarto. Modern half red morocco and paper boards, spine gilt. Contemporary ink number in upper outer corner of each titlepage. Near fine. The growing power of France and its attempt to install a Bourbon on the Spanish throne in 1700 led to a general European war from 1702 to 1712, with widespread repercussions in the American colonies. Known in Europe as the War of the Spanish Succession, it was called Queen Anne's War in America. During its course, the French and Indians launched bloody raids on British frontier settlements, and the British seized parts of Canada. The war went badly for the French and Spanish and well for the British, who were thus able to gain favorable terms. A group of treaties grew out of this settlement, which did much to determine European and American circumstances in the early 18th century. The present volume collects the official French printing of four of the treaties signed by France: those with Great Britain, the Estates General (the Netherlands), the Kingdom of Savoy, and Prussia. France actually signed two treaties with Great Britain, a treaty of navigation and commerce, and a general peace treaty. France returned Hudson Bay to the British and gave up Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, as well as St. Kitts in the Caribbean, and acknowledged England's sovereignty over the Iroquois. The French received fishing rights off the coast of Newfoundland, and both countries agreed to extend most-favored nation trade status to the other. France was also able to keep its position in Acadia and at Louisborg, which proved very troublesome to the British in later wars. One of the supplementary articles at the conclusion addresses the tobacco trade. This printing of the French- British treaty is not in TPL, which records two other printings in Latin, French, and English. Not in EUROPEAN AMERICANA or Arents. The printings of the French treaties with the other three powers are quite scarce. The Dutch gained little from the French, although the general weakening of Spain greatly strengthened their position in world trade. Savoy gained territory as well, including Sicily. An important group of treaties with great American significance. DAVENPORT 100, 101. SABIN 96539.

L'illustration comprend 3 vignettes de titres répétées aux armes, 2 bandeaux de titre pour l'épitre et la préface, et 2 lettrines ; 6 bandeaux de titres et lettrines pour le texte ; le tout gravé par Audran. Les huit tableaux dépliants de Paris sont manquant. Pages de titre en rouge et noir. Le premier volume du Traité de la police parait en 1707, le volume 2 en 1710, le volume 3 en 1719, et un quatrième volume (De la voirie), rédigé par le secrétaire de Delamare, paraîtra à titre posthume en 1738. Reliure en plein veau usagé d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin brun. 3 premiers caissons des deux premiers tomes absents, idem pour le premier caisson du tome III. Coiffes de queue arrachées. Pièces de titre et de tomaison manquantes aux 2 premiers tomes. Intérieur d'une belle fraîcheur. Le traité de la police, tout en étant secondairement une histoire des règlements dans l'Antiquité et de l'exercice de la police contient l'ensemble des ordonnances et des règles dans tous les domaines, c'est à dire tout ce qui se rapporte au droit public (nourriture, commerce, des spectacles, des prisons...) pour la ville de Paris. Le premier tome traite également des divers corps de la police et de son administration. C'est en 1667 que Lamoignon, premier Président du Parlement de Paris, suggéra l'idée à Nicolas Delamare, d'écrire un ouvrage décrivant les méthodes de la police dans une grande ville ; les archives et la riche bibliothèque de Colbert lui furent ouvertes à cette fin. « Cet ouvrage n'est pas, dit l'auteur, un simple recueil d'ordonnances, comme je me l'étais d'abord proposé ; ce sont des dissertations sur toutes les matières de police ; c'est une histoire de toutes les lois et de tous les règlements depuis l'établissement de la plus ancienne des républiques jusques à présent ». Dès les premières pages de son Traité, Delamare donnait une définition large de la police, comme un « art de procurer une vie commode et tranquille ». Le plan original de Delamare prévoyait 12 livres, il n'en parut que 6. Le premier livre traite "De la police en général et de ses magistrats et officiers", le second "de la religion", le troisième "des moeurs", le quatrième "de la santé",  et le cinquième "des vivres".

      Elegante legatura in piena pelle rossa, duplice filetto in oro ai piatti; dorso abilmente rifatto con autore e titolo in oro su tassello verde, fregi e filetti sempre in oro agli scomparti; tagli dorati, dentelle interne e sguardie marmorizzate. 2 carte bianche; 91 pagine numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo in rosso e nero e ampia allegoria incisa da Vercruysse; 2 carte bianche finali; alla pagina 91, altra allegoria a chiusura del volume incisa su matrice di rame. Da Wikipedia: " Antonio Cocchi nacque a Benevento dove i genitori, Giacinto Cocchi e Beatrice Bianco di Baselice, si erano momentaneamente trasferiti dal natio Mugello per motivi di lavoro, visse gran parte della propria vita a Borgo San Lorenzo, località di cui la famiglia era originaria e dove la stessa aveva numerosi possedimenti. Nel 1713 studiò a Pisa poi a Firenze presso i Padri Scolopi e successivamente si laureò in medicina, seguendo l'attività paterna, presso l'Università di Pisa. Nel 1736 fu nominato lettore di Anatomia nello Studio Fiorentino. In medicina si mosse sulla linea tracciata da Francesco Redi e da Giovanni Alfonso Borelli. Sostenne l'importanza dell'anatomia per gli studi medico - chirurgici. Studiò inoltre le acque termali dei Bagni di San Giuliano, sulle quali scrisse un importante trattato. Fu anche valente naturalista e, nel 1734, ricostituì la Società Botanica di Firenze con Pier Antonio Micheli. Il 12 marzo 1736 fu tra i personaggi che ebbero l'onore di trasportare le ossa di Galileo Galilei, nel nuovo sepolcro allestito nella Basilica di Santa Croce in Firenze. Per alcuni anni esercitò la professione medica sull'Isola d'Elba, quindi viaggiò molto in Europa, in particolare in Francia, in Olanda e in Inghilterra, dove ebbe occasione di conoscere Isaac Newton, dedicandosi quindi allo studio della storia medica, traducendo anche trattati classici greci e latini. La sua attività di scrittore fu indirizzata allo studio di importanti opere letterarie, pubblicando trattati e saggi su opere di Voltaire e di John Milton ed alla traduzione di opere di Senofonte Efesio. Tradusse anche vari scritti greci che formarono la raccolta dei Graecorum chirurgici libri. Tra le sue altre opere si annoverano anche una Vita di Benvenuto Cellini ed il trattatello Del matrimonio". Fu membro dell'Accademia della Crusca ed uno dei primi membri italiani della massoneria (fu iniziato in una Loggia fiorentina nel 1732 che teneva le sue riunioni nel palazzo di famiglia a Firenze). Esemplare in ottime condizioni, ad ampi margini; lievi, modeste, ossidazioni alle prime carte.

Moss II:17 "useful and creditable editions"; Dibdin II:101-105, "Amsterdam editions of 1713 and 1728 are preferable to the Cambridge one of 1711"; Mills College Editions of Horace 430, Dibdin also notes that the "merits of Bentley are highly extolled by Harles and Mitscherlich: 'Priceps Criticorum' is a title frequently bestowed on him" (Dibdin II:101-2). "Bentley, Richard (1662-1742), philologist and classical scholar ... Bentley's Horace took longer still: less than a year for the text, but nearly seven for the textual notes, during part of which he stopped work altogether. In 1713 a second edition was printed in Amsterdam and a small edition in Cambridge with short notes, prepared by his nephew Thomas Bentley, who became a fellow of Trinity in the following year. A few days after its initial publication Thomas Hearne observed, on 29 January 1712, 'Dr Bentley's Horace is much condemn'd for the great Liberty he hath taken in altering the text' (Remarks, 3.273), and pamphlet attacks soon followed. With more than 700 changes from the vulgate, this was indeed 'unlike any edition of a Latin author ever before given to the world' (Monk, 1.316). Few of Bentley's conjectures are accepted, but many of his accepted emendations began as conjectures before he found support in manuscripts consulted for his notes. Confident in his own divination, Bentley emended 'anything inconsistent with the harmonious measures of classical poetry' (Pfeiffer, 154). Yet, even where his solutions are wrong, Bentley's grasp of textual problems and the learning he brings to bear on them are quite extraordinary. The much quoted note on Odes, book 3, ode 27, line 15'To us reason and common sense are better than a hundred codices'significantly continues, 'especially with the added testimony of the old Vatican codex'."

Dezallier's (1680-1765) "La Theorie et la Pratique du Jardinage" (first published in 1709) is an important book on the theoretical aspects of eighteenth-century gardening. "The bibliography ... is complicated by the fact that the work was at first published anonymously, then under initials, then as by Alexnadre Le Blond, who furnished the designs for some of the illustrations. As there were a good many editions, and as the names Dezallier d'Argenville and Le Blond (together) may be listed at five diffeent places in dictionary catalogues, it is not easy to bring together complete information. There were editions of 1711, 1715, 1719, 1722, 1737, 1747, 1760, and 1777 ..." (Hunt Catalogue).

      December 1713 - July 1714. Folio: together 3 manuscripts + 2 printed texts loosely stitched): 10 pp., 1 blank f., 3 pp. (written on vellum), 8 pp. Sewn to: "Declaration du Roy pour le Reglement des fonctions des Maires & de laurs Lieutenans." Paris, 19 Aug. 1702 (11 Sept. 1702) + "Edit du Roy, portant creation de Maires perpetuels..." Paris, Aug. 1692 (27 Aug. 1692). + 1 blank f. (docket). Worn and partially defective; some staining, and priced accordingly. Manuscript and printed documents which illustrate the legislation and regulations of mayors in France, and the sale of municipal offices during the late 17th- and early 18th-century. The present collection a printed copy of the actual 1692 Royal Edict which authorizes the sales of mayoral offices; moreover, there is a contemporary MS account of a lawsuit by such a (former) mayor against the town of Arras. The significance of this rare Edict is described by Michael P. Breen: "In the early 1690s, as the monarchy struggled to keep its armies in the field against the combined forces of England, the Dutch Republic, Austria, and the Holy Roman Empire, it began aggressively to tap the wealth of France's towns, selling virtually all existing municipal offices and creating new ones for sale. In August 1692, Louis XIV created offices of "perpetual mayors" along with new assesseurs in all walled cities except Paris and Lyon. The threat of losing control over their city's principal office, it appears, was enough to motivate the leading inhabitants of many major cities to pay the crown's asking price, often 100,000 livres or more." (SOURCE: "Law, City, and King: Legal Culture, Municipal Politics and State Formation in Early Modern Dijon, pp. 136 et seq.). This is corroborated by Raymond Poincare who states that "From 1692 onwards Louis XIV issued a whole series of edicts and ordinances depriving the ancient electors of the communes of the right of choosing their own mayors ; he created the offices that is, hereditary public appointments of sheriffs, jurats, capitols, and perpetual mayors. The pretext alleged was that the interest of the towns demanded such a step, as they were said to be agitated and disturbed by elections. But in actual truth these offices were created that they might be sold and the royal treasury filled." (SOURCE: How France is Governed, pp. 33-34). The present manuscripts concern a lawsuit by one of these mayors, namely Nicolas-Francois Boucquel (at that time mayor of Arras) against Adrien-Philippe du Carieul, Chevalier, Seigneur de Fiefs, Beauquesne, etc., and the members of the Confrérie Saint Sebastien in Arras. To these manuscripts are attached printed documents which describe the new terms for the office of the "perpetual mayor" and would appear to have been used to support the position of the plaintiff. As if the infallibility of the original 1692 Edict was not enough, the plaintiff also attached a copy of the 19 Aug. 1702 "Declaration du Roy pour le Reglement des fonctions des Maires & de leurs Lieutenans." The document reaffirms the validity of the 1692 and August 1701 Edicts. THE PLAINTIFF: Nicolas-François Boucquel came from a powerful and wealthy family (his father had been ennobled to a charge of Secretary to the King in the Chancery of Paris in 1683). Boucquel became mayor of Arras in March 1692, and was appointed Conseiller Secretaire-Controlleur of the Chancellerie pres le Parlement de Douay in 1703. In this capacity he presided over the renewal of the aldermen and hearing accounts. In 1718 the city of Arras tried to get rid of Boucquel, and suddenly "abolished" the mayoral post, only to appoint François Deslyons the next year. But in 1719, Boucquel was reinstated upon payment of twelve thousand livres. Nicolas-François Bouquel died suddenly December 18, 1726, struck with apoplexy in the rue Saint-Nicolas, in Arras (SOURCE: Dictionnaire historique et archéologique du département du Pas-de-Calais, Volume 1, 1873, p. 52). Several versions of the August 1692 Edict exist, only one of which appears to be in the U.S. (at Harvard). The present 4-page folio edition (without the name of the printer or publisher) does not appear to be listed on OCLC.

Engraved vignette on title, one folding engraved plate, and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text. 14 leaves, 484, [8] pp. 1 vols. 4to. The Second Principia. The critical second edition of what is incontestably the single most important scientific work ever published, one which laid the foundations for modern physics. Published in Newton's lifetime by his friend and collaborater, Roger Cotes (1682-1716), this edition contains for the first time Cotes' Preface which lays out Newton's method, a 7 pp. Index, and most importantly, Newton's own celebrated conclusion entitled SCHOLIUM GENERALE (pp. 481-484), written in response to the objections of Berkeley and Leibniz, in which the author expresses the religious conceptions underlying and supporting his empirical-mathematical construct. "Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The PRINCIPIA provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory. With him the separation of natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlunar worlds disappeared. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws" (PMM).

Though nearly twice the length of the earlier 'Vita of Bernini' written by Filippo Baldinucci (1682), this version omits the catalogue of the artist's works and the nine architectural engravings. When comparing the two works, Domenico's biography was considered a doppelganger of its predecessor. Although both works use virtually the same title, Domenico omits the professional identities scultore, architetto, e pittore on his title, which underscores the son's emphasis on Bernini the 'man' in place of Baldinucci's account of Bernini the 'artist.' Until the late twentieth century, it was believed that Baldinucci's Vita del Cavaliere Gio. Lorenzo Bernino was the ultimate word on Bernini. The biography that followed 31 years later written by Bernini's youngest son Domenico Bernini (1657-1724) was considered by Adolfo Venturi, Julius von Schlosser and many others to be a shameless example of plagiarism of the earlier Baldinucci text. However, in 1919 Erwin Panofsky began investigating the two nearly similar texts and recorded that he felt Domenico's version to be more persuasive (see: "Die Scala Regia im Vatikan und die Kunstanschauungen Berninis," Jahrbuch der Preussischen Kunstsammlungen 40 (1919, pp. 241-78, especially 272 n. 1 and 276 n. 4). In 1966 Cesare D'Onofrio, following Panofsky's lead, compared the two texts in light of a detailed analysis of what was then known about the genesis of Baldinucci's and Domenico's biographies, and he hypothesized that Baldinucci relied heavily on material provided by the Bernini family, including a complete manuscript Vita written by Domenico while his artist/father was still alive (see: "Note Berniniane 2: Priorità della biografia di Domenico Bernini su quella del Baldinucci," Palatino 10 (1966), pp. 201-8). "Though his Life of Gian Lorenzo Bernini was published only in 1713, Domenico wrote the first draft of this full-length biography of his father in the late 1670s (see the publisher's "Preface to the Reader"), while his father was still alive and with presumably some input from his father, if only in the indirect form of anecdotes and tales told by Bernini to his children at the dinner table and remembered by the author while compiling his biography. The most compelling evidence leads scholars now to conclude that Domenico's lost first draft, in fact, supplied the substance of the biography of Bernini published in 1682 by Florentine art critic Filippo Baldinucci, for there is no other persuasive explanation for the substantial amount of verbatim repetition between the two works. Though Baldinucci's work for many years enjoyed pride of place among the scant primary sources for the life and works of Bernini, it is Domenico's biography that represents the most important biographical source" (Franco Mormando, The Life of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. A Translation and Critical Edition, with Introduction and Commentary, Penn State University Press, 2011). "When D'Onofrio's hypotheses about the genesis and priority of the biographies finally took hold in the 1980s, Domenico's text came to be considered the biography that stood closer to Bernini himself, even proffering the promise of conveying actual one-on-one exchanges between artist and biographer" (see Introduction to Maarten Delbeke's Life of Bernini, Penn State University Press, 2007). Some pencil underlining, else a fine copy. Cicognara 2209. Schlosser-Magnino 469. Rossetti 1009.
