VALLISNERI. Antonio (1661-1730)
Collectible [Publisher: Giovanni Gabbriel Hertz] 1721
2011-07-25 20:33:41
London - J. D. 1721 - The very scarce collectd works of John Denns, regarded as Englands first drama critic. The first volume contains two title pages with different dates. The first title page is a more detailed one, is dated 1721, with the second, shorter title page dated 1718. The second volume contains one title page only, dated 1718. John Dennis (1657 - January 6, 1734), was an English critic and dramatist, born in London, the son of a saddler. Neither the poems nor the plays of Dennis are much remembered, although one of his tragedies, a violent attack on the French in harmony with popular prejudice, entitled Liberty Asserted, was produced with great success at Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1704. Dennis is best remembered as a critic, and his earliest works, which lack the rancour that afterwards gained him the nickname of Furius, are regarded as his best. His sense of his own importance approached mania, and he is said to have desired the Duke of Marlborough to have a special clause inserted in the Treaty of Utrecht to secure him from French vengeance. Marlborough pointed out that although he had been a still greater enemy of the French nation, he had no fear for his own security. This tale and others of a similar nature may well be exaggerations prompted by his enemies, but the infirmities of character and temper indicated in them were real. Condition: These volume have been rebound with new pastedowns and end papers. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including a few marks to the boards and mild bumping to the spines. Internally the pages are generally clean and … [Click Below for Full Description]

AGRICOLA, Georg Andreas (1672-1738)
printed for P. Vaillant . and W. Mears and F. Clay, London, 1721. (11 1/16 x 9 inches). Title printed in red and black. 22 engraved plates (13 double-page). Contemporary speckled calf, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt (joints split, corners neatly repaired) First edition in English, with notes by Richard Bradley, of the "first treatise on cuttings and graftings" (Hunt). In 1715-16, Agricola, a German doctor who practiced in his native city of Ratisbon, published some details of his important new method of propagating plants. "This consisted in grafting twigs and boughs to pieces of the same tree, using a plaster containing turpentine and pitch, mixed by means of heat, which he termed vegetable mummy. He also said that if 'vegetable mummy' were used to seal the open end of a cut bud, twig, or leaf, this would produce a root and develop into a new plant or tree. He thus claimed to be able to propagate as many new plants as a plant had twigs or even buds and leaves" (Henrey). Agricola subsequently published a book, in two parts, on the same subject "Here Agricola gives a detailed description of his method and its practical possibilities . This work proved extremely popular and was translated into French, English, and Dutch. The French translation was probably by Antoine Augustin Bruzen de la Martinière, and it was translated from this French version into English.

Moderate/heavy shelf wear, corners through, front and rear boards separated from spine, majority of spine leather missing, else tight, bright and unmarred. Full brown leather, decorative endpages. 8vo. Non-sequential pagination. Illus. (b/w plates). An unusually fine copy of [the textblock of] the first edition 'of the first important German treatise on insects' (Miall p. 240). 'Frisch was a careful and diligent observer, bent not merely upon observing, but upon interpreting the facts of structures and habit. He takes one insect at a time, describes its external features, figures it in all stages, if possible, and tells all that he has been able to discover about its mode of life' (Miall pp. 240-1). Johann Leonard Frisch (1666-1743) was also the author of several dictionaries (and is remembered for introducing the mulberry into Prussia). The present work was issued over a period of 18 years describing some 300 different insects. The exceptional plates were engraved from Frisch's own drawings (many by his son, Philip Jacob). It is very uncommon to find such a nice copy of this book, most often found in poor condition. HagenI, 254; Miall, L.C., (The Early Naturalists: Their Lives and Work (1580-1789)), pp. 240-244).

Titles printed in red and black, old ownership signature partially obliterated on first. Trivial marginal waterstaining at intervals. Worn contemporary calf, rebacked and recornered. Wood himself, who sometimes chose to style himself “à Wood”, is described as “a very strong lusty man, of uncouth manners and appearance ... not avaricious and a despiser of honours ... [he] led a life of self-denial, entirely devoted to antiquarian research. Bell-ringing and music were his chief relaxations.” (Ency. Brit. 11th edition.) Britannica also adds that “his taste and judgment are frequently warped by prejudice”. His work, the first of its kind to deal with the University and the Colleges, courted controversy. This second, revised English edition contains posthumous defences by Wood's nephew, after Wood had been condemned at the vice-chancellor's court for libels against the earl of Clarendon in the first edition of 1693, and attacked by Bishop Burnet for displays of popish prejudice.

Cant, Arent
Leiden: Pieter van der Aa, 1721. First edition. Cant, Arent (1695-1723). Impetus primi anatomici ex lustratus cadaveribus nati. . . . Large folio. [6] 28pp. Engraved title vignette, 6 folding engraved plates after drawings by the author. Leiden: for the author by Pieter vander Aa, 1721. 504 x 372 mm. Speckled calf c. 1721, gilt spine, a little worn & spotted, spine and corners repaired. Fore-edge of plate 6 repaired, a few tears and chipping to some margins, some damp stains mainly confined to final blank end-leaves, but otherwise very good. Russian library stamp on the verso of the title. From the library of Ira M. Rutkow, with his pencil signature on the rear flyleaf, and the collection of Dean S. Edell. First Edition. Cant, a pupil of Frederik Ruysch, was a skilled anatomist and artist whose ambitious plan to publish a great anatomical work was interrupted by his premature death at the age of 28. The present work represents the only volume of Cant's projected anatomy; it contains six large folding plates, drawn by the author, illustrating the anatomy of the head, heart, stomach, shoulder and knee joints, thoracic duct, etc. Cant was one of the few early anatomists to make use of the "grid-reference" identification system devised by Eustachius (1510/20 -1574), in which anatomical structures are located by means of numbered borders at the side and top of each plate; this method allows the anatomist to illustrate his figures without superimposed lettering or numbering.

Wood, Thomas (1661-1722)
London: London: printed by W.B. for Richard Sare, at Gray's-Inn-Gate in Holborn. 1721., 1721. 3rd Edition . Leather. Very Good. Description: 8vo (8 × 5¼ in): t-p., 144, xvi, [8], 414, [10] p. (the last page contains ads). Contemporary polished calf, decorated in blind, morocco label. · Register: 8º: [pi]1 ^[pi]B-K^8 A^8 a^4 B-2D^8 2E^4. · Condition: Slight wear to head and tail of spine, but generally well-preserved; signed on the title-page "Dudley Hussey"; the preliminary treatise moderately browned and foxed. · Comments: Third edition, the last in the author's lifetime and the first to contain the "Treatise on the first principles of the law." In the main work, Wood describes the civil law on its own terms, according to the Insitutes of Justinian, and gives comparative notes on English law. The preliminary treatise is much more theoretical and synthetic. Wood was learned and industrious, but lacked literary genius; like his Institute of the Common Law, the main work dwells much on detail while neglecting broader principles. Perhaps the work prefixed to this edition was meant to answer that criticism. Despite his short-comings, Wood is credited with recognizing the contribution of the civil law to the form and content of the common law, without giving it undue primacy. Dudley Hussey was a lawyer active in Dublin in the second half of the eighteenth century; he was elected recorder (a judicial office) of that city in 1784 and died the following year. · References: Johnson 208 (3 copies); Worrall 66; Bridgman 368; Marvin 743; S&M 1:613(16); Holdsworth, HEL 12:425-427; EST … [Click Below for Full Description]

SENEX, John (1678-1740)
London: J. Senex, circa 1721. Copper-engraved map by John Harris, with full modern colour, printed on laid paper, in excellent condition apart from the loss of the lower right corner (well outside platemark) and a re- backed centerfold. 20 5/8 x 24 ¾ inches. A stunning plan of Rome, by the celebrated English mapmaker John Senex. A contemporary of Herman Moll, John Senex was one of the most successful mapmakers during the golden age of English cartography. He issued a series of atlases with John Maxwell and C. Price, and went on to re-issue Ogilby's road atlas. He was appointed Geographer to Queen Anne, and in 1728 was elected to the Royal Society. His beautiful maps are famed for their meticulous detail and ornate cartouches, and they remain some of the best examples of eighteenth century English mapmaking. Like Senex's other town plans, this stunning aerial view of Rome includes vignettes of the city's ancient and Renaissance landmarks. Indeed, all of the city's architectural treasures (as of 1715) are clearly illustrated. Anyone interested in present day Rome will be fascinated by the extent to which the city has and has not changed. The map is oriented with the north to the right. the Vatican holding the lower left corner. The map includes an extensive alphabetical index of 252 churches, palaces, monasteries, convents and colleges. There are inset views in each corner showing the Colosseum, St. Peter's cathedral, Trajan's Column and the Pyramid of Gaius Cestius. A truly enthralling historical document.
