        Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World

      First Edition of Gulliver\'s Travels[SWIFT, Jonathan]. Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In four parts. By Lemuel Gulliver...London: Printed for Benj. Motte..., 1726.First edition, Teerinkís State A, with the following points: Part I, p. 35, line 5 has ìSubsidiesî correctly spelled; Part III, p. 74 is misnumbered ì44;î Part III, G6 is a cancel, with ìPart IIIî at foot; Part IV, p. 52, line 1 has the misprint ìbuth is.î Four parts in two octavo volumes. xvi, 148; [6], 164; [6], 155, [1]; [8], 199, [1] pp. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state, with the inscription ìCaptain Lemuel Gulliver of Redriff. â??tat. suÃ? LVIII.î around the oval the the tablet bearing a Latin inscription (printed on paper with vertical chain-lines), four maps, and two plans.Modern antique-style mottled calf. Gilt double-rule border on covers, gilt spines with red and green morocco labels, gilt board edges, edges sprinkled red, marbled endpapers. Small ink stain on frontispiece portrait. Short tear to upper margin of B7 in Part I. Some inoffensive washing at the beginning of Volume II. A little light foxing and soiling. Early ink signatures on recto of frontispiece and on title-page of Volume I. Otherwise an excellent set. Housed together in a red morocco clamshell case.Gulliverís Travels, to use the popular title, is one of the greatest satires in the English languageóor any language, for that matter. It was an immediate success, which accounts in part for its bibliographical complexity, and has been hailed as a book that ìwould last as long as the language, because it described the vices of man in all nationsî (D.N.B.). Vice not withstanding, and unintentionally, it has become not just a great satirical novel, but a juvenile classic as well.Grolier, 100 English, 42. Hubbard, pp. 15-17.

        A catalogue of books printed for H. Curll, over-against Catherine-Street in the Strand

      1726. (London), n.d. (1726). Drop-title. 8vo. 16pp. disbound. Edmund Curll (1675-1747) was a rather controversial person. According to Straus there never was a man who succeeded in irritating almost beyond endurance so many of his betters. And nothing could make him see the error of his ways: he just continued to irritate. If, for instance, objection was raised to some books of his of the bawdier kind, it would as likely as not be followed by another even more scandalously improper. If a furious author declared that a book of his, published by Curll, was wholly unauthorised, he would probably find that a second volume of his work was being advertised as corrected by the author himself. Occasionaly the bookseller went too far, and then there was trouble, sometimes wholly grotesque. He was frequently sued for libel and variously fined and even imprisoned for printing and publishing obscene and immoral books. In November 1725 Curll was once again found guilty and announced his retreat from bookselling. His son Henry was called on to step in the breach. Henceforth, it was decided things should continue much as it had been, except for an altered initial. That probably explains why this catalogue was printed for H. Curll rather than his father Edmund. Although officially he was retreated it was Edmund who ran the business. Straus dates this catalogue around 1726 or 1727: ... must, I think, have been issued either in the summer of 1726 or in the spring of 1727 [cf. Strauss, The Unspeakable Curll & Plomer, A dictionary of the printers and booksellers]. Scarce.

        Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships. Vol. 1. [Part II. A Voyage to Brobdingnag. Part III. A Voyage to Laputa, Balnibarbi, Glubbdubdrib, Luggnagg and Japan. Part IV. A Voyage to the Houyhnhnms.]

      London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple-Gate in Fleet-street, MDCCXXVI [1726]. 2 vols, 8vo, A-K8, L2, [-]1, 2[-]2, 2B-2L8, M2; pp. [i-v], vi-xvi, [1], 2-148; (6), [1], 2-164; engraved frontispiece and plates facing B1r and 2B1r. Vol. II: A3, B-K8, L4, M2, 2A4, 2B-2M8,N8, O4: (6), [1], 2-155, [156, blank]; (8), [1], 2-199, [200, blank]; engraved plates facing B1r, D4r, F5v, and 2B1r. 20th century full brown morocco, concentric central panels ruled in gilt, black and blind, gilt fleurons at corners, gilt backstrips a touch faded in (6) compartments, marbled endpapers. Gilt edges. Bookplate at the front (see below). The true first edition, Teerink A with all the first issue points. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state as usual. All six maps and plans present. Decorative woodcut and engraved head- and tailpieces throughout. Ã’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 intentionsÓ (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. This copy was cleaned and rebound c. 1920, as books often were at that time, perhaps for Mrs. Poole. From the Caroline Boeing Poole Collection, sold by B.M. Rosenthal in 1977. Armorial bookplate bound in of Thomas Macro DD of Bury St Edmunds and Great Yarmouth (d.1743/4, aged 60); he was University Librarian at Cambridge so he might well have been an active book buyer and perhaps bought this copy when it was published as it is the rare first issue which was radically changed almost immediately after being published (see John Blatchly, Some Suffolk and Norfolk ex-libris. The Bookplate Society, 2000). Teerink 289. PMM 185. Rothschild 2104.

      Sixty finely engraved plates. 8 p.l., 153 pp., [5] pp. Folio, cont. boards (a bit soiled & rubbed). Leipzig: C. Zunkel, 1726. First edition of one of the most important volumes in Leupold's series Theatrum Machinarum, or "Theater of Machines"; this was the most complete and richly illustrated work on engineering and machinery published, not just up until that time, but for many years to follow. "Leupold's treatise is the most comprehensive of all the early bridge books and the first to be published in Germany. It was inspired by Gautier's influential work and covers masonry, pontoon, floating and military bridges but is particularly notable for the material on long-span timber-truss bridges. Leupold writes with authority on this type of structure, of which there was a long tradition in Germany, taking as examples some recently-built bridges and making an attempt to illustrate the behaviour of beams and trusses and to describe the properties of timber; in this he follows Galileo and anticipates Buffon."­Elton, Cat. 2, 58. Leupold (1674-1727), a Leipzig mechanical engineer, established a workshop to manufacture mathematical and mechanical instruments. His numerous books describe the latest technological developments of the day. Fine fresh copy. .

      Wien, 7. I. 1726.. 2 SS. Folio..

"Reichs-Ritterschaft und Adel" des Niederrheinischen Kreises hatten gegen den Erwerber der beiden Dörfer Klage erhoben und sich dabei auf ein Vorkaufsrecht bezogen, das beim Verkauf der Dörfer von Johann Heinrich von Hagen an Graf Gustav Adolf von Nassau-Saarbrücken i. J. 1624 ausgehandelt worden war. Der Kaiser befiehlt nun, die Dörfer "gegen das anerbottene Kauff-pretium" zurückzugeben. - Etwas angestaubt und fleckig und mit kleinen Randläsuren; einige Ausrisse alt hinterlegt; mit eh.

Reissue ( containing an 8 page postscript ) of a detailed work on the treatment of various Abdominal Hernias ( or ruptures ) by the Glasgow Surgeon Robert Houstoun [ 1678 - 1734 ]. In 1701 he had removed a large growth or cyst from a 58 year old patient & thus performed the first ovariotomy, and in so doing achieved lasting fame. He would in 1724 be asked to give a lecture before the Royal Society in London on this operation, such was its importance. Here he gives a comprehensive account of the treatment of the hernia, ancient & modern with recipts and relates, with full credit, the details of the secret cure for Ruptures which was work of Katherine Bowles. The Postcript at the end rejects the claims of a Dr Littlejohn with regard the 'Secret' cure - Littlejohn had approached the Admiralty & passed off Bowles' cure as his own. She responded with a short work of her own [ 1726 ] and Houstoun here asks readers to decide who was the true inventor of the cure.

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

      London: printed for N. Blandford; and sold by J. Peele, 1726 - 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 First Blandford edition. 8vo. 31 pp. Recent marbled boards. Very good.

Leibniz (sinds 1673 Freiherr von). Leipzig 1 juli 1646 - Hannover 14 november 1716. Buitengewoon veelzijdige filosoof. Trad in 1667 in dienst bij de aartsbisschop-keurvorst van Mainz. Leerde in deze betrekking zeer veel geleerden en filosofen persoonlijk kennen. Met de meesten bleef hij in contact door een uitgebreide briefwisseling. Na de dood van de aartsbisschop van Mainz maakte hij zelfstandig nog enige reizen en deed wetenschappelijke ontdekkingen; o.a. construeerde hij een rekenmachine, ontwikkelde hij de mathematische annotatie (o.a. integraalteken) en ontwierp hij de differentiaalrekening (onafhankelijk van Newton). Vanaf 1676 tot aan zijn dood was hij te Hannover in dienst van Johan Frederik hertog van Brunswijk-Lünburg en diens opvolgers, aanvankelijk als bibliothecaris, later ook als historicus van het Huis Brunswijk. Hij is ook de stichter van de Berlijnse Academie van Wetenschappen (1709). "Die Essais de Théodicée sur la bonté de Dieu, la liberté de l'homme et l'origine du mal erschienen 1710, sind aber bereits früher verfaßt worden; sie gehen auf Gespräche L.s mit der Königin Charlotte zurück. Die drei Arten des Übels, das metafysische, das physische und das moralische Übel, entspringen, das ist das Beweisziel der Essais, nicht Gott als ihrem freien Urheber, sondern sind nach den Gesetzen, die unsere Welt möglich machen, notwendig.

        Le nouveau miroir de la fortune ou abregé de la Geomance

      COLONNA Francesco Maria Pompeo. Le nouveau miroir de la fortune ou abregé de la Geomance. A Paris, chez Andre? Cailleau, 1726. In 16mo; pp.10n.nn., 101, 3n.nn. Due tavole fuori testo. Mezza pergamena posteriore. "Nato a Roma nel 1646, figlio di Pompeo Colonna, l'autore trasse dall'ambiente paterno l'incentivo a dedicarsi non solo agli studi letterari, ma anche a quelli scientifici ed occultistici. Nel 1668 si trasferì a Parigi. La persona che doveva influire più profondamente sulla formazione mentale del C. fu senza dubbio il famoso conte Henri de Boulainviller, che si fece assistere da lui nello studio e nella pratica delle scienze occulte. Il marchese d'Argenson ricorda un oroscopo fatto a madame de Nointel da Boulainviller e dal C. (Mémoires et journal inédit, du Marquis d'Argenson, I, Paris 1857, pp. 208 - 209). Perfino Voltaire, nel 1756, ricordava di essersi fatto predire il futuro dai due astrologhi, in una epoca imprecisata, che non può essere posteriore al 23 genn. 1722, data di morte di Boulainviller: "le célèbre comte de Boulainvilliers, et un Italien nommé Colonne, qui avait beaucoup de réputation à Paris, me prédirent l'un et l'autre que je mourrais infailliblement à l'ige de trente - deux ans. J'ai eu la malice de les tromper déjà de près de trente années, de quoi je leur demande humblement pardon" (Voltaire, Dictionnaire philosophique, in Oeuvres complètes, Paris 1877 - 1885, XVII, p. 448). it.wikipedia: "La geomanzia nasce in Persia, ed è ritenuta essere il più antico sistema divinatorio ancora oggi praticato in Occidente".
