Gasparro, Francesco Maria
1721. Gasparro, Francesco Maria [1679-1735]. Institutionum Juris Civilis. Ad Usum Seminarii Romani. Rome: Typis de Martiis, 1721-22. Four parts in two volumes bound as one. Quarto (9" x 6-1/4"). Contemporary vellum, gilt title to spine. Light soling to spine, spine ends bumped, negligible spotting to boards. Woodcut head and tail-pieces. Some toning to text, light foxing and browning in places, internally clean. * Second and final edition. Gasparro, a Jesuit canon lawyer and member of the Papal Curia, taught criminal and civil law and the University of Rome. Published with Jesuit sponsorship, and first published in 1707, Gasparro's was a standard text throughout the eighteenth century, editions appearing as late as 1787. Notable for its Jesuitical perspective, it begins with a consideration of the nature of justice, then continues with discussions of the legal status of the person, the power of the state, marriage, adoption, wards, the authority of tutors, servitude, testimony, rights of succession, sales and commercial law. Despite its popularity, all editions of this title are scarce today, especially in North America. Of all editions, OCLC locates 1 copy of the second (at UC-Berkeley Law School) and 2 copies of the first (at Harvard and Stanford Law Schools). Not in the British Museum Catalogue..

Bailey, N[athaniel]
London: printed for E. Bell, J. Darby [et al. ], 1721. First edition of one of the greatest of all English dictionaries, and "the most popular and representative dictionary of the eighteenth century" (Starnes & Noyes). 8vo, [388] leaves, lexicon in double column; contemporary full calf, red morocco label on gilt-paneled spine; minor scuffing and rubbing but no cracks of the joints and in all a very good, sound copy, the textblock clean, and the whole unrestored. This is the nicest copy we've ever handled. Bailey's An Universal Etymological Dictionary of 1721, which reached a 30th edition by 1802, was the most popular of all dictionaries before Johnson. Notable features include the prominence, and subsequent permanence of the etymological aspect, the inclusion of proverbs, a smattering of cant terms, obsolete expressions, dialect, and equivalents from other languages. It was also the first "universal" dictionary of English, accounting for all words in the language, not just the difficult or specialized ones. Alston V, 94; Kennedy 6211.

His son Jacobus then included readings from Florentine manuscripts which much improved the original. Graesse VII, p. 9-10, note, states that this edition is preferable to an earlier one that contained a similar selection, Amsterdam 1672, and in which the text was "quelquefois chang sur des conjectures, mais sans consulter des mss. ..." In the edition at hand, "les mss. de Florence ont t collationns plus exactement." Title page, vol. 2: ...Operum, tomus secundus, in quo libri quinque historiarum, De moribus germanorum, Vita Julii Agricolae, et auctoris incerti dialogus de oratoribus.

Vol. II has an armorial bookplate. (Paging 425-432 repeated in Vol. I.) A copy of this edition was in the Hollis gift to Harvard College. Bound in contemporary full leather, repaired, with new spine with gold in the style of the original, by the Hope Bindery. Stock#NS0273. A fine and handsome set.

The Canterbury Tales are illustrated with 26 engraved images of the Pilgrims. Decorative initial letters and head & tail pieces throughout. Previous owners armorial bookplate (William Markham, Becca Lodge, Yorkshire, the son of the Archbishop of York and Private Secretary to Warren Hastings) on the front pastedown endpaper. A handful of leaves with browning to the margins but overall this is a very good, tall, wide margined copy. Contemporary brown calf boards with decorative blind tooled frames. Gilt and blind tooled border to the edges. Professionally rebacked with the original spine laid down. Compartments ruled and decorated with floral centre pieces, all in gilt. Burgundy title label, gilt. Corners and edges bumped and rubbed but still an attractive copy of this impressive volume. Printed by William Bowyer; his records show three sizes printed: 1000 copies demy; 240 royal; 10 writing royal. Although the pages in this copy measure to the official size of a Demy leaf, the edges have been trimmed before binding so the original pages would have been larger, suggesting this to be one of the 240 Royal paper copies. The book is certainly much larger than any copy I have seen before and matches the size of the copies, both listed as being Royal copies, in t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leipzig, 1721. 4to. Both entire volumes (Acta Eruditorum 1721 + Supplementa VII, 1721) present, in uniform contemporary full vellum bindings with handwriting to spines. A small later label to top of spines. Old handwritten ex libris-inscription to top of both title-pages as well as a small stamp. The supplement-volume with an additional stamp to title-page, and both volumes with library label (Archiv des k.k. militär.-geograf Institutes) to pasted down front free end-paper. As usual some brownspotting. A nice set. pp. 500-514 (Supplement-vol.) + pp. 94-95. [Entire volumes: (2), 537, (39) pp. + three plates (Suppl.-vol.) + (4), 547, (42) pp. + five plates]. ¶ The highly important first Latin translation of Leibnitz' seminal "The Monadology" - his main philosophical work and the work that stands as the epitomization of anti-materialism - which was not published in the original French until 1814, and which only appeared in a German translation (exceedingly scarce) in 1720 and in a Latin translation, by Christian Wolff, in 1721, as it is here. Up until then, Leibnitz' key philosophical text had only circulated in manuscript form (written in 1714). - Here sold together with Wolff's anonymously written review of (the German version of the) "Monadology", which had great impact upon the reception of the seminal philosophical text that is the "Monadology"."Until the XXth century, criticism about Leibniz's "Principles of Nature and Grace" and "Monadology" has been characterised by a number of mistakes and misunderstandings, which have roots in the circumstances surrounding the genesi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Édition parisienne très rare, imprimée à Carpentras quelques semaines ou quelques mois après la rarissime édition originale marseillaise (de format in-quarto) qui fut rapidement saisie. Cette édition est de ce fait souvent donnée par les biographes comme l'édition originale. Cet ouvrage fut réédité en 1794. Il s'agit d'une relation étendue et jugée fidèle des événements survenus pendant cette effroyable épidémie de peste, jusqu'au 10 décembre 1720. Le médecin Bertrand, auteur d'un autre ouvrage important sur la peste à Marseille paru la même année écrit : "La relation la plus étendue est celle de M. Pichaty, avocat de la communauté, intitulée 'Journal abrégé. tiré du Mémorial de la Chambre du Conseil de l'Hötel de Ville'. Une relation fondée sur une semblable piece ne peut être que très-fidelle ; c'est peut-être pour l'être trop qu'elle fut supprimée et les exemplaires enlevés dès qu¿elle parut. Cet ouvrage est pourtant assez exact, les traits y sont vifs, les tours variés, nos malheurs y sont décrits avec une éloquence fastueuse et la maladie faisant rafle de tout y est peinte au naturel.".
