After crossing the Pacific via Guam and Macao. Shelvocke returned to England, where he was accused of piracy and embezzlement, and then acquitted. He soon left fort he Continent a wealthy man. Shelvocke wrote this account, in part, as a vindication of his conduct' (Hill p.554).

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. Treccani.it: "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".

        Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World

      , 1726. 1726. first edition. First "AA" EditionIn A-1 Condition[SWIFT, Jonathan]. Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships. London: Printed for Benj. Motte, 1726. First (Teerrick's AA) edition (second octavo edition), with all errata as noted by Teerick, issued "medio November 1726," not quite three weeks after the first octavo edition. Four parts in two octavo volumes (7 1/2 x 4 5/8 inches; 191 x 117 mm.). xvi, 148; [6], 164; [6], 155, [1, blank]; [8], 199, [1, blank] pp. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Gulliver in the second state, with the inscription “Captain Lemuel Gulliver of Redriff. Ætat. suæ LVIII.” around the oval frame, the tablet below bearing a Latin inscription; five engraved maps, two for Part III (facing pp. [1] and 39) and one for each of the other Parts (facing p. [1]), and an engraved plate of symbols in Part III (facing p. 74). Decorative woodcut and typographic head- and tail-pieces and initials.Contemporary calf paneled in blind. With the bookplate of William 6th Baron Monson (1796-1862) . Spines expertly and almost invisibly restored. An unusually clean, attractive, and excellent copy."The first five editions of Gulliver's Travels were all published by Benjamin Motte. They form a group together, and give rise to the following observations:(1) A edition (1st 8vo edition), publ. 28 Oct. 1726.(2) AA edition (2d 8vo edition), publ. medio Nov. 1726.(3) B edition (3d 8vo edition), publ. Dec. 1726.(4) Second Edition (4th 8vo edition), publ. May 4, 1727(5) [Third Edition] (1st 12mo edition), with the year 1727 but published early in 1728.The first three editions, long considered different issues only, have been proved to be separate editions...This sequence has the advantage of being the conventional one. Pope, Swift, and Ford all meant the 1727 8vo edition when they spoke of the 'second' edition" (Teerink). In this, the "AA" edition, the general title to Volume II notes "second edition," and the special title to Part IV has "Voyage" in lower case; it is all in upper case in edition "A." Both volume I and volume II in this copy conform to Teerink's AA: the first volume is usually married with a Teerink B copy of volume II."Gulliver’s Travels, to use the popular title, is one of the greatest satires in the English language—or 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 “would last as long as the language, because it described the vices of man in all nations” (D.N.B.).“Gulliver’s Travels has given Swift an immortality beyond temporary fame…All those who had been fascinated by the realism and vivid detail of Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe were captivated again, even though they knew that Gulliver must be fiction. The brilliance and thoroughness with which his logic and invention work out the picquancies of scale involved by the giant human among the Lilliputians, and then by a minikin Gulliver among the Brobdingnagians, ran away with the author’s original intenation. Gulliver’s Travels has achieved the final apotheosis of a satirical fable, but it has also become a tale for children. For every edition designed for the reader with an eye to the historical background, twenty have appeared, abridged or adapted, for readers who care nothing for the satire and enjoy it as a first-class story” (Printing and the Mind of Man).
