Possibly the death of Collier in 1726 had something to do with Jebb's change of profession, for he commenced the study of medicine, attending Mead's private practice, and also learning chemistry and pharmacy...

LIEGELSTEINER, George.
WorldCat (8 copies); cf. W. Pall, "Dwarf Trees of George Liegelsteiner", Bonsai Magazine III, pp. 38-39 (1725 ed.); not in Arnold Arboretum; BMC NH; Nissen; Pritzel; etc. Very rare last and most extensive edition of the first Western book on the cultivation of dwarf trees, extensively illustrated. All editions are very rare and this important and remarkably early account appears to have been wholly overlooked in the botanical, arbocultural and horticultural literature. "[Liegelsteiner] understands tree physiology like only a small minority of bonsai enthusiasts today" (Walter Pall). The technique he describes is exactly the traditional "Chinese" technique, and he explains in detail how, when and where to clip both roots and branches, advises transplanting trees regularly, notes correct and incorrect clipping techniques, gives instructions for correcting a lopsided tree, and for encouraging the bearing of tasty fruit. He also includes a chapter on training peach, apricot, plum and cherry trees on latticework, and an 8-page appendix (apparently new to this edition) on improving poor soil and enhancing wood growth. The 9-page "Vorrede" by an unidentified hortophile, also apparently new, gives valuable and detailed information about the introduction of the cultivation of dwarf trees to the European gardens.With a manuscript shelf(?) number on title-page, otherwise in very good condition. Endpapers browned, and binding slightly rubbed, but still good.

BERGH, Johan van den.
For Van den Bergh: NNBW IV, cols. 116-117. The original, heavily revised, juridical documents of a case handled by the bailiff of Rhineland, Johan van den Bergh, at the supreme court of Holland, against Pieter Oostenrijk "Broodbakker tot Soeterwoude", who killed the town's blacksmith Cornelis Jansz. Schrier using a knife. Pieter Oostenrijk was banned from Holland and West-Friesland for the next 50 years. In the Leydse courant of 2 May 1725, we can find and advertisement of the sale of the blacksmith's workshop, so the actual murder must have happened before that date.Johan van den Bergh (1664-1755), from 1725 to 1755 bailiff of Rhineland and several years burgomaster of Leiden, was the man who in 1741 bestowed the Leiden University library with the famous Psautier de Saint Louis.In very good condition, spine of the wrappers tattered.

CASANOVA, Giacomo.
Pollio, p. 119; Rives Childs, Casanoviana XXXII.2 (p. 74); WorldCat (3 copies this edition, 3 another ed. & 2 ambiguous). One of the rare first two Italian editions (apparently by the same printer, priority uncertain) of an interesting diplomatic pamphlet by Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798), world famous for his romantic and sexual adventures with numerous noble women. In the years 1772 to 1776 the Venetian Zannovich brothers successfully defrauded two Dutch merchants in a complicated swindle with bills of exchange, cargos of non-existent ships and uncovered debts. Amsterdam officials found Venice's failure to take action against the perpetrators exasperating and believed that a Venetian diplomat had abetted the brothers. This was the situation when Casanova stepped in and attempted to influence public opinion by writing at least three pamphlets about the incident in 1784 and 1785. He exposed the perpetrators and argued that the Venetian diplomat was another ignorant victim of their fraud. Very good copy. The wrapper is slightly faded near the spine, where it also has a couple small holes. Rare example of Casanova's skills in the seduction of disputing governments rather than women.

First edition, second issue, in which the plates from the first issue (c.1725; no copy seemingly extant) have been amended so that the title-page to the first part reads ‘Compos’d by the late Mr. Henry Purcell Dr. Blow &c.’ (rather than ‘Compos’d by the most Eminent Masters of the Age’) and the names of John and Joseph Hare, having died in the interim, have been erased from the imprint. The second part recycles material from the folio Jovial Companions or Merry Club, which Walsh, in partnership with his brother-in-law Peter Randall, had published in 1709 (Smith 303). The collection brings together songs by a range of English Baroque composers— the vast majority by Purcell (‘with over fifty pieces, almost his entire printed output in the genre’, Newman; no other composer wrote half as many), but Aldrich, Blow, Clarke, Eccles, Henry Hall, Michael Wise etc. are also represented—and it is interesting to see that their music remained popular long after most of them had died. Many of these composers are remembered today for their church music, or perhaps what they wrote for the stage, but here we see another side to their output: the catch. ‘The essential characteristic of the genre is its humour: catches were a celebration of irresponsible male leisure time, spent out of reach of the demands of women and children. Their words are usually on such subjects as drink, tobacco, music, different trades and their shortcomings, poor service in taverns and, especially, sex in its most ridiculous and least mentionable forms, the bodily functions of women being described with schoolboyish … [Click Below for Full Description]

[BLEWITT, George*]
London: R. Wilkin. 1725. 8vo., (8) + 218pp., closed tear in one leaf touching letters without loss, contemporary calf, raised bands, original gilt morocco spine label. A fine copy. First edition. The author has comments to make on just about everything although he probably focuses on Mandeville's Fable of the Bees.> Blewitt certainly thundered against Mandeville's esteem of duelling. And he concludes his Preface with some observations on charity schools. 'Those gentlemen who are the greatest admirers of the Fable of the Bees,> would hardly vouchsafe to look into a book, which they found could treat of so ungraceful a subject, as the teaching poor children to read, giving them cloaths, and binding them apprentices'. * Authorship seems to be unclear. Various authorities (see ESTC) suggest the author's identity is Thomas Bluett, others Robert Bluet and one (NjP) has a copy with a ms. inscription attributing to John Bluet of Holcomb court, Devonshire.

de Saint André, François ; Robert-Marc Despilly [publisher]
Paris: Chez Robert-Marc Despilly, libraire, 1725. First Edition. Full Calf. Very Good+. Tight, bright, and unmarred, superb copy. Bound in contemporary mottled calf, gilt decorated spine with raised bands. 12mo., 8 unnumbered pages, 446 pages, 2 unnumbered advertising pages. With marble endpapers and marble fore-edge and imprinted with illustrated devices. François de Saint André was medical counsel to King Louis XIV and author of treatises on various diseases and remedies. He wrote extensively about magic, spells and sorcerers, to prove that "the possessed and the sorcerers are often sick people in the midst of obsessions." He also describes the role of the Church, as not participating in the imagination and popularization of sorcery, demonology, and magic on the minds of the masses. In his mind, if the practice of subduing witchcraft is not in the Bible, then the Church should not endorse a position. Rather than inflating the notion of superstition, de Saint André suggests people be treated by medicines for their possessions. Scarce edition, excellent source on Rationalism and instances of early magic, occult, and sorcery in the 17th-18th century. This copy is in splendid condition with a lovely binding and endpapers.

MOIVRE, Abraham de.
Printed by W.P. and sold by F. Fayram; Benj. Motte; and W. Pearson, London, 1725. A very nice copy of de Moivre’s influential study of annuities based upon the mortality statistics gathered by Edmund Halley in the 1690s. "De Moivre’s contribution to annuities lies not in his evaluation of the demographic facts then known but in his derivation of formulas for annuities based on a postulated law of mortality and constant rates of interest on money. Here one finds the treatment of joint annuities on several lives, the inheritance of annuities, problems about the fair division of the costs of a tontine, and other contracts in which both age and interest on capital are relevant. This mathematics became a standard part of all subsequent commercial applications in England" (DSB IX: 454). ?Norman 1530; Garrison-Morton 1690. "De Moivre’s preoccupation with matters concerning the conduct of a capitalist society, such as interest, loans, mortgages, pensions, reversions or annuities, dated back at least to the 1690s, from which time a short note survives in Berlin containing his answers to a client's questions. In 1693, using the lists of births and deaths in Breslau for each of the years 1687 to 1691, Edmond Halley had published in the Philosophical Transactions a life table together with applications to annuities on lives, but the amount of calculation involved in extending this to two or more lives turned out to be immense. De Moivre replaced Halley’s life table by a (piecewise) linear function, which allowed him to derive formulas for annuities of single lives and approximations fo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Elles rassemblent 46 pièces imprimées, à pagination séparée, chacune avec sa propre page de titre. Après une notice sur la vie de Ruysch, l'éditeur a rassemblé diverses publications précédemment publiées, à des dates de différentes. Ces textes sont suivis d'une table générale.

(Indians, South America).
1725. Because Spanish colonial-era laws concerning Indians were numerous and published in the unwieldy Recopilacion de leyes de los reynos de Indias (5 vols., 1681 with subsequent revisions and editions) and authoritatively interpreted in Solorzano Pereira's also hefty Politica indiana (2 vols., 1648 and later editions), lawyers and judges often resorted to reducing the laws most relevant to their own work to a manuscript epitome, i.e., a booklet offering an abstract of each chosen law with its proper citation to either the Recopilacion or to Politica indiana when the full law or interpretation might be wanted. THIS IS JUST SUCH A WORKING EPITOME, and that it speaks both to laws relating to Indians generally and, as per its title, to => laws relating specifically to Indians settled in reducciones helps to localize it. In regions where the indigenous populations were sedentary (e.g., Mexico, Guatemala, central Peru) there was no need to force them into "reducciones" (essentially, created communities with a high degree of "townness"); but in places were the natives were nomadic (e.g., Paraguay, and some jungle regions of the Viceroyalty of Peru) enforced resettlement was the norm. Whether the Indians within the ken of this law practice were sedentary by tradition or "resettled," they were to enjoy numerous privileges and exemptions and also were prohibited from doing certain things. The first chapter headings here are a good summary of these privileges, exemptions, and prohibitions: "On the treatment of Indians," "Personal service," "Privileges in legal matters," and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dutch vellum over boards, panelled in blind with a blind arabesque in center of each cover. Leiden: J. & H. Verbeek, 1725. First Latin edition of Keill's lectures on physics and astronomy delivered at Oxford University; each was first separately published in 1702 (physics) and 1718 (astronomy). The 1702 Introductio ad veram Physicam was "probably the first textbook of Newtonian physics ever to appear."-Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook, p. 284-(giving the date as 1701). Keill (1671-1721), a student of David Gregory and Savilian professor of astronomy at Oxford from 1712, "was one of the very important disciples gathered around Newton who transmitted his principles of philosophy to the scientific and intellectual community, thereby influencing the directions and emphases of Newtonianism."-D.S.B., VII, p. 275. The lectures were general introductions to the principles of physics and astronomy based on Newtonian concepts and contain sketches of the history of the two sciences. Fine copy.

In it, he describes “the delights of Italy” (both Roman and Greek), its ancient ruins, statuary, paintings, libraries, monasteries, churches and palace, from Milan and Venice to Florence, Naples, and Rome, where in addition to the classical sites, he also explored some mediaeval remains. Montfaucon was an outstanding and celebrated Grecist and Greek palaeographer of the late humanist period (see PMM175).
