        Cadenus and Vanessa. A poem. By Dr. S-t

      London: printed for N. Blandford; and sold by J. Peele, 1726. First Blandford edition. 31 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Recent marbled boards. Very good. A famous poem about the relationship between Swift and Esther Vanhomrigh ("Vanessa"), who died in 1723 and among whose papers a manuscript of the poem was found. It was first published in Dublin on about April 19, 1726, and a second edition followed shortly afterwards, adding ten "incriminating" lines; these two Dublin printings are very rare. On May 19 two rival editions, both unauthorized, appeared in London, this one, which follows the first Dublin printing, and one published by J. Roberts, which follows the second. Blandford went on to issue six more editions within the year, and Roberts several more as well. "This edition follows the text of the Dublin first edition and omits the additional ten lines" (Foxon) RARE. Neither of the first Blandford or Roberts printings has appeared at auction (in ABPC) since 1982.

        The works of the learned Joseph Bingham . Containing I. Origines Ecclesiasticae: or, The antiquities of the Christian Church. In twenty three books. II. A scholastical history of lay-baptism. In two parts. III. The French churches apology for the Church of England. IV. A discourse concerning the mercy of God to penitent sinners. In two volumes.

      Robert Knaplock, London 1726 - First collected edition, 2 vols., folio, pp. [4], xxxi, [1], 831, [11] index; [16], 842, [2] ads; first title-p. printed in red and black, sectional titles, 2 engraved plates and 10 engraved maps by Herman Moll; contemporary full paneled calf, effectively rebacked, rehinged with cloth tape, black morocco labels on spines; good and sound. Bingham (1668-1723), author of the Origines Ecclesiasticae, or The Antiquities of the Christian Church, "was the first, says a German writer, ëthat published a complete archÊology [of the Christian Church] and one worthy of the name.í And, we may add, he will probably be the last. What he did he did so thoroughly and exhaustively, that he would be a bold man who should attempt again to go over ground so completely traversed . The ëAntiquitiesí is, of course, the one imperishable monument which Bingham has raised for himself; but his lesser works, though now forgotten, are written in the same exhaustive fashion. The largest of these is entitled ëThe French Church's Apology for the Church of England,í which ëcontains a modest vindication of the doctrine, worship, government, and discipline of our church from the chief objections of dissenters, and returns answer to them upon the principles of the reformed church of Franceí . . Bingham's literary industry must have been enormous; the ëAntiquitiesí alone is sufficient to prove this. The work bears on the face of it traces of many years' reading, before the writing began at all, and the labour must have been all the more severe because he was sadly cramped for books in spite of his proximity to Bishop Morley's library. His family preserved a copy of Pearson ëOn the Creed,í in which were eight pages neatly transcribed in his own hand, because he could not afford the few shillings requisite to purchase a new copy in the place of his own mutilated one. But never was literary industry less thrown away. Bingham has not only written an invaluable work, but he has secured for the English church the glory of supplying a serious deficiency in ecclesiastical literature. Even Romanists have been forced to confess that the ëAntiquitiesí is a most important addition to theological libraries, and the fact that it was translated into Latin by a German protestant (Professor Grischovius or Grischow) shows how highly it was appreciated by the reformed churches abroad" (DNB).

        A voyage to Arabia the happy by the way of the Eastern ocean, and the streights of the Red-Sea: perform'd by the French for the first time, A.D. 1708, 1709, 1710.

      London, printed for G. Strahan and R. Williamson, 1726. - 8vo. XII, 312 pp. With folding map and 3 plates. Later binding in contemporary panelled style mit red morocco label to gilt spine. The rare first English edition of this conflation of reports from French expeditions to Arabia during the years 1708-1713, first published in French in 1716. "It was with distinct literary skill that La Roque, who himself had visited Syria in 1689, prepared a construed travel report from the notes of various members of the first French expeditions to Arabia and Yemen. The 'Travels to Happy Arabia' well suited the tastes of the time. The well-founded knowledge which La Roque owed to the observations of Captain Merveille and his companions allowed him to provide the first detailed account of Arabic coffee plantations and the coffee trade of the Peninsula" (cf. Schnyder/v. Waldkirch, Wie Europa den Kaffee entdeckte, p. 207f.). The Atabey copy sold at Sotheby's in 2002 (lot 1473) commanded £2,868. - Occasional duststaining, but well-preserved altogether. Provenance: from the library of William Alfred Eddy (1896-1962) with his armorial bookplate ("Crux mihi grata quies" - The Cross is to me a welcome rest) on pastedown. The Sidon-born Eddy, fluent in Arabic and Arabic culture, variously served as U.S. Marine Corps officer, Aramco consultant, U.S. minister to Saudi Arabia, university professor of English Literature and college president, intelligence operative and one of the fathers of the CIA. His Ph.D. in English studies, written on "Gullivers' Travels" (1922), would seem to befit a traveller so able in the art of reversing perspectives. Macro 1427. Howgego I, p. 591, L30. Cox I, 222.

      London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, MDCCXXVI, MDCCXXVII [1726-27]. 2 vols, 8vo, pp. [i-v], vi-xvi, [1], 2-148; (6), [1], 2-164; engraved frontispiece portrait and plates facing B1r and 2B1r.

Contemporary mottled calf rebacked, a bit worn and tips rubbed, internally quite good though bottom corner of final leaf in vol. 1 torn away and repaired touching text. Edward Lowry Barnwell bookplate in each volume and signature dated 1837. First edition later issue of vol. I, second edition (so stated) of vol. II. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver. All six maps and plans present. Decorative woodcut and engraved head- and tailpieces throughout. ?'GulliverÕs Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fameÉ the brilliance and thoroughness with which his logic and invention work out the piquancies of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputian and then by a mimikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the authorÕs original intentions?" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 185). Thus while Swift may have originally set out to write another of his razor-like satires, generations of readers including children love this book for the interminably entertaining story line. Teerink 289-293. PMM 185. See Rothschild 2104.

        The History of Physick; from the time of Galen, to the beginning of the sixteenth century Chiefly with regard to practice In a discourse written to Doctor Mead

      London: J. Walthoe, 1726. Two volumes, octavo; titles within rules; a very good set in contemporary panelled calf, slightly worn and rubbed, early ms. inscriptions on free endpapers of both volumes. First history of medicine written by an Englishman. Attractive early mixed set of this first history of medicine written by an Englishman, comprising the third edition of the first volume and first edition of the second.A popular writer, Freind first conceived the idea for this history while imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1722, where he had been sent for his supposed support for the exiled Stuarts. Freed by his compatriot Richard Mead, Freind went on to complete this work, which is now rightly considered a classic and easily the most accessible and readable history of the period which it studies. Divided into fascinating chapters, and with an index, the work is discursive and broad-ranging. With passages in Greek and Latin.Attractively, this work includes Freind's hypotheses on the wrack of the Alexandrian library, and while he conventionally attributes the destruction to the Caliph in 642 AD, he writes that many of the works must have been preserved in the hands of scholars, much as happened after the expulsion from Constantinople in 1492.The second volume includes an appendix of small mixed translations from Arabic and medieval sources, including a life of the Arab physician Gabriel Damascus. The first edition of the first volume must have been quite small, and this work is not uncommonly seen in this mixed state.

Six engraved frontispieces, and 283 copper-engraved plates, as well as many text engravings, engraved vignettes and capitals. Signed in the first volume by all four publishers, listing all subscribers, and numbered (#93), identifying this set as that of Adriaan Deynoot (1685-1744). Contemporary uniform full morocco.

Marbled endpapers. Edges marbled.l First edition of this rare, splendid and opulent work which was vastly expanded on knowledge derived from the author's own collection of natural history specimens and artifacts - Marsigli's famous Kunstkammer in Bologna. The work deals with the natural history of the Danube river, which runs from southern Germany into Austria, through Slovakia, Hungary, along Croatia, through Serbia and Romania, and along Bulgaria, towards the Black Sea. It flows through Regensburg, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade and numerous other cities. It is the longest river of Central Europe. Its fauna has many endemic elements, and its waters have been a major trading route since prehistoric times. Wood: "Basic work on one of Europe's greatest rivers [...] in which [Marsigli] devoted much space to a study of the riverbed and of the waters, as well as to the flora and fauna, and geology and the mineralogy of the adjacent land." DSB: "An early classic on the natural history of the River Danube with an account (vols. IV-VI) of the animals living in it and about its course, a description of the fishes, birds and their nests, the quadrupeds roaming the banks, etc.". The volumes are devoted to cartography, astronomy and hydrography (Volume 1) with maps of the whole river and spurious astronomical observations [measurements of star positions (e.g. Polaris, Arcturus, Spica) at various places along the Danube (e.g. Vienna), Jupiter and the position of the Galilean moons (in several figures), the transit of Mercury, on 3 November 1697 and its track across the solar disc (figured), and lunar phases with 16 large figures showing the terminator relative to the moon?'s craters]; archaeology and history of the settlements, towns, roads and bridges (Vol. 2); mineralogy (Vol. 3); fish fauna (Vol. 4), which includes one plate with shells, and two with turtles; avifauna (Vol. 5); and several other subjects, including meteorological and climatological observations, notes on the river's velocity, the insects occurring in and near the river, etc., etc. (Vol. 6). They are titled as follows: Tomus I, in tres partes digestus : geographicum, astronomicum, hydrographicum; Tomus II. De Antiquitatibus Romanorum ad ripas Danubii; Tomus. III. De Mineralibus circa Danubium effossis; Tomus IV. De Piscibus in aquis Danubii viventibus; Tomus V. De Avibus circa aquas Danubii vagantibus, et de ipsarum nidis.; Tomus VI. De Fontibus Danubii. Observationes anatomicae. De Aquis Danubii et Tibisci. Catalogus plantarum. Observationes habitae cum barometris et thermometris. De Insectis. Wood: ?"The part of ornithological plates with 74 drawings by the Italian artist Raimondo Manzini (1658-1730), including 59 birds, and 15 nests with eggs, the latter are considered the first illustrations of its kind in the history of ornithology?". In several bibliographies the plate number is erroneously stated to be 284, which probably goes back to a counting error caused by inconsistencies in the numbering of figures and the distinction between engraved plates and text engravings. Complete copies have 283 plates, as should be concluded after carefully comparing the extensive plate listings. Provenance: the former owner of this copy was the original subscriber, Adriaan Deynoot from Holland, who earned his doctorate in law in Leiden and held various offices in his hometown of Rotterdam, including Commissioner for Water Regulations. He also served several times as the city's mayor. Sir Hans Sloane was among the other subscribers. Spines with some dry patches, a few skilful old repairs, some leaf-edges slightly toned or thumbed, but overall a fine, complete, and clean copy. Anker, 326; Cat. BM(NH), p. 1,247; Brunet III, 1474; Dean III, p. 284; Nissen IVB, 593; Nissen ZBI, 2697; Wood, p. 452.

LA PRIMERA, DECLARA SER EL MANIFESTO MENOS DIGNO DE IGLESIA tan grande. Ser insubsistentes los motivos, que expressa. Ser notoriamente incertas muchas de sus erudiciones.

        De Sancto Matrimonii Sacramento disputationum. Posterior et accuratior editio.

      Pezzana,, Venetiis, 1726 - Tre volumi in uno di cm. 34, pp. (80) 380; 308; 314. Primo frontespizio in rosso e nero con grande stemma centrale ripetuto agli altri frontespizi. Solida legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, dorso a piccoli nervi. Manca parte del tassello, lievi tracce d'uso, peraltro esemplare genuino, marginoso e ben conservato. Il Sanchez (1550-1610), gesuita spagnolo, fu giureconsulto di enorme fama; quest’opera fu messa all’indice nel 1627 soprattutto a causa della disputatio De debito coniugali (cfr. tom. III, p. 171 e ss.). La reazione ecclesiastica verte sul ruolo dell’autorità pontificia in relazione alla validità del matrimonio in presenza o assenza di prole. La fortuna di quest’opera si deve attribuire in definitiva non solo alla pura dottrina giuridica, bensì anche alle numerose pagine dedicate, direttamente o indirettamente, alla sfera sessuale nel contesto matrimoniale. Assai ricercato. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      apud Franciscum Zane Sub Signum S.Ignatii 1726 Testo latino. Cm.24,8x18,4. Pg.(8), XXXIV, 610. Buona legatura in piena pergamena rigida coeva, con dorso a cinque scomparti. Tagli spruzzati. Vignette calcografiche al frontespizio e all'inizio del testo e bellissima incisione su rame di Antonio Luciani all'antiporta. Nella parte che riporta la numerazione romana sono elencati i nomi di tutti i destinatari delle epistole ciceroniane. Bell'esemplare, impressione fresca, buoni margini, solo qualche lieve brunitura. Bella, rara edizione "in usum delphini" delle lettere familiari ciceroniane, raccolte in trentasei libri ed annotate dal gesuita francese Philibert Quartier. La prima edizione aveva visto la luce a Parigi nel 1685. "Queste lettere, giustamente elogiate per la forma e prese a modello in ogni tempo, sono il documento più importante per la storia dell'ultimo periodo della Repubblica romana e, più ancora, per conoscere da vicino quel singolarissimo personaggio che fu il loro autore. Di esse non molte furono scritte per essere pubblicate; la maggior parte, e sono le più interessanti, sono di carattere intimo".

      apud Marcum Michaelem Bousquet 1726 Opera completa in due tomi raccolti in unico volume. Seconda edizione. Cm.24,5x19,5. Pg.(20), XCVI, 752, 76. Ottima legatura coeva in piena pergamena con elementi decorativi impressi ai piatti. Titoli manoscritti al dorso a sei nervature. Opera adorna di 48 tavole ripiegate, contenenti figure geometriche e astronomiche (una da collocarsi nella Prefazione e 46 numerate, la n°XIX è doppia) e cinque a soggetto gnomonico. Una bella tavola incisa su rame da G.Seiller all'antiporta. Ai due frontespizi piccole vignette calcografiche incise da Chopy su bozzetti di De Poilly. Ulteriore incisione calcografica di Seiller all'inizio della dedicatoria. Alcuni cartigli e capilettera. Esemplare in condizioni di notevole freschezza, ottimamente conservato. Si tratta del principale, fondamentale testo di astronomia, matematica e gnomonica di David Gregory (Aberdeen, 1661 - 1708), docente a Oxford e Edinburgh, nipote del matematico scozzese Jacopo Gregory e amico personale di Isaac Newton. L'Opera, basata proprio sulle teorie newtoniane, vide la luce la prima volta nel 1702 ed è qui in seconda edizione. Di particolare interesse la presenza nell'Appendice, con numerazione araba, della prima ristampa della "Astronomiae Cometicae Synopsis" di Edmund Halley, in cui l'Autore prevede il ciclo della cometa che avrebbe assunto poi il suo nome, oltre al trattato di gnomonica.
