Justinus, Martyr; Styan Thirlby
Londini : Impensis Richardi Sare, 1722-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio. 468 p. Latin and Greek. Bound in contemporary full leather. Handsome binding. Gilt lettering on spine. 6 raised bands. Beautifully restored. Red and gold leather spine label. Rebacked. Good binding and cover. Bookplate of Sir John Chester, 6th Baronet on inside board. Clean, unmarked pages with tanning. <br><br> Contents: The First Apology addressed to Antoninus Pius, his sons, and the Roman Senate; Second Apology of Justin Martyr addressed to the Roman Senate; Dialogue with Trypho. <br><br> Justin Martyr, also known as Saint Justin, was an early Christian apologist, and is regarded as the foremost interpreter of the theory of the Logos in the 2nd century. Most of his works are lost, but two apologies and a dialogue did survive. The First Apology, his most well known text, passionately defends the morality of the Christian life, and provides various ethical and philosophical arguments to convince the Roman emperor, Antoninus, to abandon the persecution of the fledgling sect. Further, he also makes the theologically-innovative suggestion that the seeds of Christianity actually predated Christ's incarnation. In the Dialogue with Trypho, after an introductory section, Justin undertakes to show that Christianity is the new law for all men. In this work, Justin associated Satan with the Serpent that induced the fall of Adam and Eve in Genesis. He was the first interpreter of the Scripture to make this association.

Madrid: a costa de Francisco Medel 4to (21 cm; 8.25"). [4] ff., 378 [i.e., 376] pp.. [1722] Golden Age writer Cristobal Lozano (1609–67) was a priest, doctor in theology, commisar of the Holy Crusade and of the Holy Office, and a friend of Calderon de la Barca and of Juan Pérez de Montalbán. He left a goodly corpus that includes novels, poetry, and plays, all reflecting or studying in one degree or another the concerns of Counter-Reformation Spain. Themes include purity of blood, student life, and the status and roles of women in society. Soledades de la vida y desengaños del mundo was first published in Madrid in 1658 and was reprinted many times in the subsequent decades, attesting to its continued popularity during the "Edad de Oro." Essentially a miscellany, it is composed of two distinct parts, the Soledades and the Persecuciones de Lucina, dama valenciana, y tragicos sucessos de Don Carlos. The first is essentially a four-part pastoral novel about love and life while the second is an eight-part novel concerning a pair of young lovers whose parents oppose their friendship with the expected result of the youngsters running away together and having adventures and misadventures. Provenance: No individual's name appears, but the title-page is inscribed in an 18th-century hand with the name of a little town in southeast Puebla, Sto. Tomas Hueyotlipan. Recent vellum, old style, with ties.

DELISLE, Guillaume
Paris: Chez l'Auteur Sur le Quai de l'Horloge, 1722. Map. Engraving with modern hand coloring. Image measures 20" x 25.5". Beautiful map of the island of Ceylan from 1722 with two ornate cartouches. Includes part of southern India. Nautical soundings and banks noted, including a large pearl bank. Some staining to margins and small repair to margin lower left. Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726) was one of the cartographers who propelled the French school of map-making away from Dutch dominance. The French school emphasized science and accuracy over ornament. His family took over the business and kept publishing maps well into the late 18th century. He used astronomical observations to determine locations and draw more precise coastlines. He continually updated his maps and dispelled prevailing geographical inaccuracies throughout his life. Engraved by Claude-Auguste Berey who was the official engraver for the Royal Academy of Sciences.

The first attests to George I as rightful King of England, rejects any influences of the Pope and Roman Catholicism (shown below), and rejects transubstantiation (turning bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ) as an article of faith. The second broadside is a complete rejection of James III?s or his progeny?s claims to England?s, or anyone else?s, throne.

NEWTON, [Isaac]
Montalant 1722 Finely printed with decorative woodcut headpiece, initials, and engraved chapter vignettes depicting author?s optical experiments (white on black background - - see sketch of vignette in Guerlac, pp. 158 and on dust jacket of his book). With 12 folding engraved plates. Full vellum; faint water stains on the blank fore - edge of a few leaves. Bookplate of Arnold Thackray as well as a very interesting contemporary wax armorial stamp used as a bookplate. An especially nice, crisp copy, important for its illustrations and typographical execution. This second French edition is greatly superior to the first Amsterdam edition of 1720 (which was published in 12mo.) not only textually but for its beauty. According to Guerlac, it is the handsomest edition of the Opticks printed in Newton?s lifetime, or indeed later. This edition, quite rare, was edited by Pierre Varignon, and included changes proposed by de Moivre and authorized by Newton.

NEWTON, [Isaac]
Montalant, Paris 1722 - 4to. [xx], 595, [1] pp. Finely printed with decorative woodcut headpiece, initials, and engraved chapter vignettes depicting author’s optical experiments (white on black background -- see sketch of vignette in Guerlac, pp. 158 and on dust jacket of his book). With 12 folding engraved plates. Full vellum; faint water stains on the blank fore-edge of a few leaves. Bookplate of Arnold Thackray as well as a very interesting contemporary wax armorial stamp used as a bookplate. An especially nice, crisp copy, important for its illustrations and typographical execution. This second French edition is greatly superior to the first Amsterdam edition of 1720 (which was published in 12mo.) not only textually but for its beauty. According to Guerlac, it is the handsomest edition of the Opticks printed in Newton’s lifetime, or indeed later. This edition, quite rare, was edited by Pierre Varignon, and included changes proposed by de Moivre and authorized by Newton.

Pitois, Giuseppe Aureglio
Reycends & Guibert, Torino 1722 - oblong folio. contemporary blue wrappers. 26 engraved leaves (of 28). Text in Italian. A manual by Italian writing master Pitois. One of a number of his works produced in Turin by Reycends Brothers and the book/mapseller firm Guibert. At the beginning of the 18th century, the Rome-Venice hegemony in penmanship was waning, due to growing French influence in calligraphy. This slant towards French taste is revealed in the "Moderno" of the title and the fact that most of the twenty-six leaves are marked as engraved in Paris by artist Claude-Auguste de Berey. From 1690 to 1730 de Berey, or Berey, engraved the plates for several well-known French works on calligraphy. All the firm's writing manuals printed at this time were engraved in Paris (Barker, p. 147). Two leaves lacking. Soiled, margins chipped, old fold at center. Marks in ink throughout.

London: printed, and sold by T. Warner, at the Sign of the Black-Boy in Pater-Noster-Row, 1722. First edition in English of this amusing "back-handed condemnation" of cuckold-making. 12mo. 24 pp. Twentieth-century full brown bear skin with the fur still on, marbled endpapers by John Field. Faint foxing to text, fur binding fine. ESTC T89694 . The cuckold plays his part in the stereotypical imagery of 18th-century frivolity-connected to the realm of erotic conspiracy and license. "Our wives are lovely,"acknowledges the author, "why should they not be beloved?- We live in an age where men sell their consciences for a bribe, why should not we then sell our wives' favors for good posts and precious things?- Let us discretely wink at their stealths." "Offering insight into the mentality of the public as they engaged in loose morality and cuckold-making, this piece is perhaps the most compelling evidence of back-handed condemnation. It includes the wife's perspective and moral justification for her behavior. These justifications, though, seem trivial [to the modern reader] and show themselves to be mere attempts at pacifying the cuckold's guilty conscience" (Ryan Gritter)

"THE EARLIEST VIEWS TAKEN IN CANADA" (Sabin). An early contemporary history of the Indian nations of Canada and their relations with the French and English, written by a French naval officer serving in Hudson's Bay and New France between 1697 and 1714. Bacqueville's epistolary account derives chiefly from his own observations of the capture of Fort Nelson and Frontenac's administration, and also summarizes the earlier stewardship of Denonville, the French establishment on the St. Lawrence, the Hudson's Bay expeditions, and the Iroquois Nation's method of making war and contracting alliances. "This work relates entirely to Canada and the Iroquois Indians; the plates comprise the earliest views taken in Canada" (Sabin). The maps include: "Carte de la Baye et Detroit d'Hudson," "Carte du Gouvernement du Montreal," and "Carte Generalle [sic] de la Nouvelle France."

Daniel Defoe
Holland: ?, 1722. This book is obviously a 19th century production. It resets the original text including the title page word for word dated 1722 although there is no attempt to deceive. At the bottom of the title page it states Printed in Holland but there is no other information regarding date or publisher. The binding is a good quality three quarter calf with marbled boards and the block is gilt top edge. The front pastedown bears the armorial library plate of Ricardi F.GVL.Brandt and the title page the stamp of R.F.W.Brandt, possibly a son. There are references to RFW Brandt making ceramic bequests to the Victoria & Albert Museum so the book probably has some pedigree. A publishing enigma and extremely scarce.. Three-Quarter Calf. Very Good. 180x120mm.
