POPE, Alexander) [Hill, Aaron]
[London: s.n., 1718. First separate edition. 2 pp. broadsheet. Folio (12 x 6 inches). Fine, with contemporary manuscript addition to title, explaining that the Preface is "To a poem called, The Northern Star, by Aaron Hill". First separate edition. 2 pp. broadsheet. Folio (12 x 6 inches). The first separate printing of Aaron Hill's Preface in reply to Alexander Pope's criticism of his Northern-Star, a poem published in 1718 and dedicated to Peter the Great of Russia. "Hill had, apparently through Lintot, asked Pope's opinion of The Northern Star. Lintot, according to Hill, reported to him that Pope though 'Printing any thing in Praise of the Czar of Russian wou'd be receiv'd as a Satyr on the Government'" (Guerinot). Hill questions Pope's criticisim and professes he would have preferred that the poem by critiqued on the merits of its style and execution, than to be faulted for insulting the government. He criticises Pope's Windsor Forest for its forced classicism and further lashes out at the popular poetic diction of his age, in which "… all our Women are Nymphs, Angels, or Goddesses; our Men, Demi-hero's; all our Soldiers are invincible; all our Generals beyond Caesar; all our Kings like Augustus …" The broadsheet is without imprint, but may have been printed by either Berington or Morphew, printers of The Northern-Star. Hill and Pope clashed frequently, though they were not bitter enemies and did exchange letters. Later editions of Hill's poem excluded the Preface, presumably at the author's request. Rare, not in ESTC. Cf. Foxon H225 & Guerinot, p. 7 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pope, Alexander]
London: E. Curll, 1718. First edition. [3]-25, [3, ads] pp., lacking half-title. 8vo. Contemporary Cambridge calf, spine with raised bands in six compartments, morocco lettering piece in one, the rest gilt, edges sprinkled. Front joint just starting, some toning and staining, loss to margin of Cymbalum Mundi title-page, a few leaves close trimmed, affecting a word on Pope title-page and a few page numbers and words trimmed elsewhere. First edition. [3]-25, [3, ads] pp., lacking half-title. 8vo. Pope vs. Cibber. Rare first edition of Pope's pamphlet reply to Colley Cibber's The Non-Juror, a baldly propagandistic adaptation of Moliere's Tartuffe. Cibber's play slanders all non-jurors (such as the Catholic Alexander Pope) as outright Jacobites. Cibber alludes to Pope three times in the play and generally disparages his Catholicism. "These three allusions, not very meaningful in themselves, were probably meant to suggest that Pope's verse would be popular in homes disaffected to Hanoverian interests and to remind the audience or reader that Pope was a Catholic and, all too probably, like Dr Wolf, a Jacobite" (Guerinot, p. 70). Pope's ingenious reply twists Cibber's muddled work to suggest The Non-Juror is in fact a sly piece of pro-Jacobite propaganda. That Pope wrote a response to Cibber's play was known from Cibber's A Letter from Mr. Cibber to Mr. Pope (1742): "At this time then there came out a Pamphlet (the Title I have forgot) ... The Purport of this odd Piece of Wit was to prove, that the Non-Juror in its Design, its Characters, and almost every Scene of it, was a clos … [Click Below for Full Description]

RETZ Cardinal de
- S.n., Amsterdam 1718, In-16 (8,5x14,7cm), (14) 428pp. et (2) 407pp. et (2) 420pp., 3 volumes reliés. - Seconde édition. Contrefaçon rare de la première édition d'une rareté insigne parue à Nancy en 1717. Cette édition sera également donnée à Cologne chez David Roger, qui semble être un éditeur fictif. Pages de titre en rouge et noir, contrairement à celle de Cologne. On notera que les lacunes des éditions anciennes des Mémoires n'ont jamais été comblées avant 1836 ; elles étaient causées d'une part par des passages raturés et d'autre part par des feuillets arrachés au manuscrit. Reliures en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs jansénistes. Pièces de titre et de tomaisons en maroquin rouge. Les dos sont plus foncés. Frottements. Un minuscule trou de vers en queue du tome I, ainsi que sur le mors supérieur en tête. Bon exemplaire. Paul de Gondi rédige ses mémoires à la demande de ses amis, lors de son exil, vers l'âge de soixante ans (vers 1675-1677), et compose l'autobiographie d'un homme politique dans une époque de guerre civile, la Fronde. Non seulement témoignage historique de tout premier plan, l'œuvre figure parmi les monuments littéraires du XVIIIe et des mémoires et autres autobiographies ; par son style alerte, précis, celui d'un homme d'action et d'intrigues à l'intelligence remarquable et à l'ambition politique toujours en éveil (toujours prêt à s'allier à qui l'a trahi la veille). Ses mémoires constitueront une revanche et son dernier ressort d'ambition. Ex libris manuscrit en bas de la page de titre : A. Germain, curé de Reilhac.

Espingarda perfeyta (The perfect gun) is the most remarkable treatise on this subject of it's period. "Written in the closing years of the 17th century in Lisbon, it describes the work of three brothers, leading gunsmiths of their day, two of whom signed the book and the third of which remains anonymous. As it was highly unusual to write about the closely guarded secrets of the art, they signed it using anagrams. The three brothers were Jose Francisco, Joao Rodrigues, and Manoel Antonio. Had these three been anxious for publicity, they would hardly have disguised their names. T … [Click Below for Full Description]

First octavo edition, second issue, second overall edition. The first issue of the second edition was released in 1717. Newton's major work on his corpuscular or emission theory of light, "a work of great authority" (PMM) both on its first publication in 1704 and in the present day. "The Opticks of 1704–6, generalizing the message of the Principia, issued a manifesto of his new programme. The mechanical philosophy with its imagined mechanisms of imagined particles was out. Forces mathematically defined, explaining observed motions in a quantitatively precise manner, formed the centrepiece of Newtonian science. Modern science has shaped itself accordingly. The same Opticks also contained at the end the first full papers in mathematics that Newton made public" (ODNB). The number of queries in this edition was increased to 31, including the "celebrated Query No. 28 on the nature of light". This copy with errata corrected in a contemporary hand on 23 pages.

Incisione allegorica in ovale al frontespizio, con vedutina di Firenze sullo sfondo. Cartigli e capilettera ornamentali. Scrittore di parte guelfa, il Malispini (o Malespini) compose la sua opera attorno al 1270.

L'edizione è autorizzata per buona nel Vocabolario della Crusca, nella cui ultima ristampa però allegasi più spesso quella, che ne fu fatta in Firenze nel 1718 insieme colla Cronica di Giovanni Morelli fiorentino, non mai prima pubblicata, qual similmente per Testo di Lingua citasi dagli Accademici .... Egli (il Malespini) si protesta aver tratto la sua Cronica da Scritture della Badia Fiorentina, e da altre ottenute in Roma da un tal Fratello di Liello Capocci....... Il Muratori asserisce essere stato il Malespini il primo Scrittore Istorico che abbia usato la nostra Lingua, ma ciò non sembra però essere vero, mentre avanti il Malespini scrisse in questa istessa Lingua la sua Istoria Matteo da Giovenazzo .....". Gamba, 637, "La Cronaca di Giovanni Morelli, qui pubblicata per la prima volta, venne frequentemente adoprata dai Vocabolaristi. E' in lingua bellissima e quantunque l'Autore abbia per iscopo di narrare gli avvenimenti della sua famiglia, non manca di registrarne altri della sua Firenze, ed appresta una lettura curiosa ed assai dilettevole".

Stab-stitched pamphlets bound into recent imitation-morocco cloth, black-stamped titles to front board, light toning to contents. $350. * First editions. In the early eighteenth century, grand juries were often an integral part of civil and criminal matters heard in the Court of Quarter Sessions and the six-monthly Assizes. These charges outline the duties of grand jurors and their importance. Their appeals to patriotism and duty reflect the reluctance of many men to serve as grand jurors. As it is today, service on a grand jury required a considerable commitment of time, energy and expense. English Short-Title Catalogue T17516, T17515.

JOBLOT, Louis.
1718 - Paris: Collombat. 1718. Small quarto. Contemporary full calf, gilt spine with red morocco gilt label, marbled endpapers; pp. [x] + 78 + 96 + [v, contents], 34 plates, engraved headpieces; binding a little bumped to extremities, previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown, manuscript notes in ink to flyleaf, previous owner's signature to title page, internally very clean and bright, very good. First edition. Louis Joblot (1645-1723) is now overshadowed by his contemporary Leeuwenhoek but was an equally innovative scientist. In this volume, his landmark work and the first French book on microscopical research, he presents his own technical improvements to the microscope, his observations of protozoa and, crucially, his rejection of spontaneous generation. He observed many animalcules for the first time, classifiying them according to shape, and was the leading discoverer of infusoria until 1773, making this book an important document of early microbiology.

BUFFON, Georges Louis Leclerc, Comte de.
1718. Ad 1: Nissen ZBI, 737; STCN (2 copies); ad 2: STCN (3 copies); cf. Nissen ZBI, 3639 (German editions). Ad 1: A separately published chapter from Buffon's Algemeene en byzondere natuurlijke historie (the Dutch translation of Buffon's Histoire naturelle), dealing with the hippopotamus, containing the same engraved plate, depicting the hippopotamus on a river bank, as the French edition published by Schneider at Amsterdam.

Klockner of the preparation and stuffing of a dead hippopotamus that was shipped from the Cape of Good Hope to Amsterdam.Ad 2: First edition of the Dutch translation of Versuche mit Schnecken by the German entomologist, mycologist and clergyman Jacob Christian Schäffer (1718-1790). It is an account of many experiments executed on several species of snails to find out whether the heads, including the tentacles, grow back after decapitation, which Schäffer finds out to be the case. It includes 7 plates, all coloured by hand, showing different species of snails in different stages after their decapitation.Title-page slightly damaged, as if something was pasted on it and later removed, hardly affecting the text, slightly creased throughout with some occasional minor stains or foxing. Binding rubbed along the extremities with partly cracked hinges. Overall in good condition and only slightly trimmed, leaving most of the deckles intact. [Attributes: First Edition]

Cardinal de RETZ
Second edition. A rare counterfeit of the first edition of a rare rarity that appeared in Nancy in 1717. This edition will also be given in Cologne at David Roger, who seems to be a fictional publisher. Title pages in red and black.Bindings in full brown contemporary brown. Back to Jansenist nerves. Title and tomato pieces in red morocco. The backs are darker. Friction. A tiny hole of worms at the tail of volume I, as well as on the upper bit at the top. Good copy.Paul de Gondi wrote his memoirs at the request of his friends, at the time of his exile, about the age of sixty (about 1675 - 1677), and composed the autobiography of a politician in a contemporary of civil war. Sling. Not content to be a historical testimony of the foremost, the work is among the literary monuments of the eighteenth and memoirs and other autobiographies; by his precise alert style, that of a man of action and intrigues of remarkable intelligence and political ambition always on the alert (always ready to ally himself with those who had betrayed him the day before). His memoirs will constitute a revenge and his last spring of ambition.Ex libris handwritten at the bottom of the title page: A. Germain, parish priest of Reilhac. S.n. Amsterdam 1718 In-16 (8,5x14,7cm) (14) 428pp. et (2) 407pp. et (2) 420pp. 3 volumes reliés
