        A System of Magick; or, A History of the Black Art. Being an Account of Mankind's most early Dealing with the Devil; and how the Acquaintance on both Sides first begun

      London: J. Roberts, 1727. First edition, first issue. Covers detached. 8vo. [12], 403pp. Title printed in red-and-black. Engraved frontispiece depicting a magician in his study. Contemporary English blind-paneled calf. Provenance: Gilbert East (1793 inscription at title gutter). "Defoe again begins with a humorous preface, in which he explains that if anyone was expecting, based on the title, to find a work of science, "'a Book of Rules for Instruction in the Practice, or a Magical Grammar for Introduction to young Beginners, all I can say to such is, that they will be mistaken."' The work is instead a history of the practice of magic, beginning in ancient times and traced down to the present day. He explains how the Magi first came to deal with the Devil, and how the Devil has continued to insinuate himself throughout history, appearing to and deceiving men with false signs and wonders" (Lilly Library). A complete, unrestored copy. ESTC T70333; Moore 487.

        Schat-kamer ofte konst der stier-lieden, Amsterdam, Joannes Loots, 1702. With woodcut illustration of a ship's pilot with a plumb line and navigational instruments by Adriaan Le Duc (1693-1729) on title-page, 4 engraved plates (3 folding and 1 full-page). Further with many woodcut illustrations (mostly diagrams), and letterpress tables of tides and solar and lunar positions.Including: (2) VLACQ, Adriaen. De Tafelen der sinuum, tangentium en secantium, ofte der hoekmaten, raaklynen en snylynen. Amsterdam, Joannes Loots, 1702. Primarily with letterpress tables of logarithms and trigonometric functions, the present copy lacking those for logarithms. 2 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. Contemporary vellum.

      - Crone Library 373 & 374; cf. Bierens de Haan 5196 (1727 ed.); Cat. NHSM, p. 672 (1713 ed. plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone); STCN (1727 ed., plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone), WorldCat (1710 ed.). Very rare first edition of a standard practical manual on the art of navigation, by the virtually unknown Klaas de Vries, teacher of mathematics in Amsterdam. In the preface De Vries summarises the content of the book, which is profusely illustrated (mostly with diagrams) and includes letterpress tables of the tides, the time lag between the positions of the sun and moon for the years 1701-1710, the declination of the sun, etc., as well as 4 engraved plates of a compass rose, the use of the Jakob's staff, the "Platte Paskaart" and the "Wassende graadige paskaart". The work is concluded by sections on the winds one can encounter on the journey from Holland to the Dutch East Indies; how to sail to the East Indies in autumn, during monsoons, etc. Ad 2: The corrected Loots edition of tables of trigonometric functions and logarithms. The note to the reader explicitly states that the tables are based on those published by Adriaen Vlacq in 1665 (Tabulae sinuum .), but that they have been corrected, in part based on comparisons with the folio editions of Pitiscus for the trigonometric functions and Henry Briggs for the logarithms. The present copy lacks the tables of logarithms, but its collation and signing otherwise agrees with the somewhat irregular ones given in Crone. Good copy, the Schat-kamer complete with the errata leaf. The Tafelen lacks the two tables of logarithms (45 leaves, 2A1-M1). Binding somewhat dirty and stained, with the head of the spine chipped and cracked. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Mémoire sur les colonies Américaines, sur leurs relations politques avec leurs métropoles, et sur la manière dont la France et L'Espagne ont dû envisager les suites de l'indépendance des Etats-Unis de l'Amérique.Paris, Pierre-Samuel Dupont, 1791. 8vo. 19th-century half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      - Cat. Goldsmith I, 14728; Kress B2230; Sabin 97456. First separate edition of a revolutionary treatise on the relations between the American colonies and the colonising countries by the French economist Anne Robert Jacques Turgot (1727-1781). He explains his theory that the colonising countries should withdraw from the colonies on a friendly basis allowing the colonies to have their own goverment and trade with other countries independently. When the colonising countries would grant the colonies independence, they could still have the benefit of trading and settling there. The treatise was already composed in 1776 at the request of King Louis XVI, who solicited his ministers' opinions regarding the proper French policy toward the American Revolution. It was first published as Reflexions rédigées. in Mazzei's Recherches historiques et politiques (1788).A very good copy, only a few small spots. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Engraved vignette on title, folding map, & 60 engraved plates. Title-page printed in red and black, 7 p.l., 420 pp.; 1 p.l., 421-630 pp., [27] leaves. Two vols. in one. Thick 8vo, cont. speckled sheep, spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Leiden: J. van Abcoude, 1727. First edition in French (1st ed., in German: 1718), of this richly illustrated and scarce book; it is one of the best guides to Paris of the early 18th century. Nemeitz (1679-1753), a German scholar who traveled widely in Europe, served as a tutor for various members of the Italian and French nobility. Due to his profession, Nemeitz was familiar with many of the great cities of the Continent, where he sought out lesser-known "curiosities" as well as the standard sights. Following a two-year residence in Paris, he wrote the present work as a detailed guide. Not only does he provide "touristic" suggestions to go to gardens and cathedrals, he also instructs the reader on the skills necessary to ingratiate oneself with Parisian high society - fluency in German, French and Latin is essential, as well as a wide-ranging knowledge. The present work also contains profiles of prominent aristocrats and public figures such as Louis XV, the Duke of Orléans, the Prince of Condé, and the Archbishop of Paris. This book offers a rich perspective on the life of the upper-class in early 18th-century Paris with chapters discussing: "how one must dress," "conversation with the fairer sex," "coffee shops," "visiting public and private libraries," "necessary expenses," "preservation of health," and "in what season and what way one must see the royal chateaux around Paris." The 60 engraved plates depict the most famous buildings in Paris and its environs, accompanied by histories and architectural descriptions. Nice copy. This was a rather popular work which underwent several editions in both German and French. Unidentified 19th-century bookplate on front paste-down and early 20th-century engraved bookplate on verso of title. ? Brunet, Vol. IV, 36- "Il est curieux pour l'histoire de Paris au commencement du XVIIIe siècle." N.B.G., Vol. 37, cols. 649-50.

        The hermit: or, the unparallel'd sufferings and surprising adventures of Mr. Philip Quarll, an Englishman: who was lately discovered by Mr. Dorrington, a Bristol merchant, upon an uninhabited island in the South-Sea; where he has lived above fifty years, without any human assistance; still continues to reside, and will not come away.London, printed for J. Wren, J. Jefferies and J. Fuller, 1751. 12mo. With engraved frontispiece and engraved map. Contemporary tanned sheepskin.

      ESTC (7 copies); Gove, pp. 262-268; Howgego, Invented narratives, L45; cf. Sabin 66952; Ullrich IV, pp. 118-119. Rare third edition of a popular account of an imaginary voyage and robinsonade, written by Peter Longueville. The first edition was published in 1727, and "became an enormously popular work, rivalling Defoe's Robinson Crusoe , of which it is possibly the best imitation" (Howgego). The story tells about the imaginative Englishman Philip Quarll, who shipwrecked near an uninhabited island in the South Sea where he continued to live for almost fifty years. It starts with the voyage of the Bristol merchant Edward Dorrington, who discovered Quarll in 1725. He gives an extensive account of Quarll's life, starting with his adventures in England, where he married three wives before becoming a merchant seaman. Stranding on the island, he had to build a home and survive. The book relates remarkable events involving sea monsters and Quarll's pet monkey Beaufidelle. "Apart from occasional intrusions by bloodthirsty Indians and marauding Russian pirates, life in his 'second Garden of Eden' is carefree and idyllic, so much so that he refuses Dorrington's invitation to return to England" (Howgego).Somewhat browned, foxed and with a few marginal water stains. Overall a good copy. Corners of binding bumped and worn, hinges cracked, lacking the front flyleaf.

Contemporary tan calf, gold-tooled spine, gold triple fillet border on both sides, gold fillet on board edges, gold-tooled turn-ins, decorative endpapers (block-printed in gold), edges gilt over marbling.

      Einaudi 4024; Goldsmith 10507; Kress 6663; WorldCat (4 copies). Fine copy of an interesting and very extensive prospectus, by André Morellet (1727-1819), announcing a new commercial dictionary in 5 folio volumes and calling for subscriptions. He first explains why a new dictionary is needed, extensively describing the first commercial dictionary in Europe of Jacques Savary des Brûlons. He also mentions English dictionaries of commerce. He found all these dictionaries far from complete, omitting many interesting details and says they are not as universal as they claim. So in the present prospectus Morellet proposes a new, complete, universal commercial dictionary, and describes the differences between his planned dictionary and the existing ones. The prospectus is very detailed and well organised, no doubt because he needed to convince his public of the need for such an extensive and therefore probably expensive dictionary. Morellet worked on his dictionary for 20 years before the French Revolution interrupted him, but never published the dictionary itself.With a couple rust spots in the paper and occasional very minor foxing, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding shows a few scrapes and scratches on the boards and is slightly worn at the hinges, but still very good. A remarkably detailed record of a project that unfortunately never came to fruition.

        Alexipharmaca. Io. Gorraeo Parisiensi medico interprete.Paris, Michel de Vascosan, 1549. 8vo. Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      - Bird 1727; Durling 3338; cf. N. Wilson, Encyclopedia of Ancient Greece (2006), pp. 503-505. First Paris edition of a work on antidotes, by the Greek poet and physician Nicander of Colophon, (fl. second century BC). "Nicander wrote at least 20 works, of which two survive: Theriaca on poisonous creatures, with remedies against their stings and bites, and Alexipharmaca on antidotes to poisons. Both are indebted to Apollodorus" (Wilson). The present edition gives the text in Greek with the Latin translation, along with annotations by the Parisian pharmacist Jean de Gorris (1505-1577). "After a poem addressed to Protagoras of Cyzicus, [the Alexipharmaca] presents 22 substances and entities - animal, vegetable, and mineral - that are fatal or harmful to human beings. Some of the more notorious toxic substances known to antiquity are included: hemlock, aconite, opium, henbane and blister beetle. In each case, the poet first describes the symptoms produced by the poison, and then the antidotes" (Wilson).With bookplates of the Trotter family of Mortonhall and F.B. Lorch, and early owner's and auction inscriptions. Bookblock almost completely detached from binding, with a large waterstain in the upper right corner and slightly smudged margins, otherwise in good condition.

This was one of the last publications of the gifted architect and mathematician, Lodovico Perini (1685 - 1731). He studied practical geometry and perspective with the Gasparo Bighignato guide and later Domenico Rossetti. Perini aimed to make the principles of geometry applicable to practical activities and undertakings in land management, surveying, architecture, etc. The woodcut engravings in the text provide very useful visual guides to measuring dimensions, calculating volume, and constructing tools and implements.

        L'Imitation de Jesus-Christ, Traduction Nouvelle. Avec une pratique et une Priere ... Par le R.P. de Gonnelieu, de la Compagnie de Jesus. Nouvelle edition. [In Four Volumes]

      Chez Claude Robustel. LEATHER BOUND. B071W5CD5J In French, and the Ordinary of the Mass (which precedes this translation of The Imitation of Christ) is in both French and Latin. 1727 Chez Claude Robustel (Paris), four 5 x 7 3/8 inches tall full leather bound volumes, ruled covers, elaborate gilt decorations and gilt-lettered burgundy leather labels to spines, all page edges red, marbled endpapers, [Vol. 1] liv, [2], 206; [Vol. 2] 207-352; [Vol. 3] 353-534; [Vol. 4] 535-677 pp. Includes a two-page catalogue of publisher Claude Robustel's work. Lacking the Pierre Giffart engravings mentioned in the listings of the two French libraries which hold the only institutional copies found by OCLC (Cat. No. 490232683) worldwide, but otherwise complete in all respects. Light to moderate rubbing and edgewear to the covers. A couple of pinhole size holes, impacting a couple of words in the Approbation at the rear of Volume 4. A few pages with slight, mostly marginal staining, and a few creased page tips. Otherwise, in very good condition - clean, bright and unmarked, of this extremely rare issue, which hasn't come up to an auction recorded by ABPC over the past several decades. A handsome set with a splendid shelf appearance. Reference: Augustin De Backer, Essai Bibliographique sur le Livre De Imitatione Christi, 876. ~LR1~A rare translation of this immortal devotional work derived from the French version first published in Paris in 1712 by French Jesuit theologian, ascetical writer and preacher Jerome de Gonnelieu (1640-1715), with relevant observations and prayers following each of the book's many chapters. Most scholars - and the two French libraries which hold copies (Bibliotheque nationale de France and Bibliotheque interuniversitaire Sainte-Genevieve) - credit Nancy, France printer John-Baptiste Cusson for the primary translation, saying Gonnelieu's prinicipal contribution was the observations following each chapter. The Imitation of Christ was first written by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471) as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. There is probably no other book apart from the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations. . Very Good. 1727. First Edition.

        Den Danske Comoedies Ligbegængelse, Med Taliæ Afskeeds Tale, Forestillet Til allersidste Slutning Af De Danske Acteurs Den 25 Februarii 1727.

      1727 1727 - Kiøbenhavn, 1746. Trykt udi Hans Kongel. Majests. og Universitæts-Bogtrykker, af Johan Jørgen Høpffner. 8vo. [16] s. Gennemgåend rent eksemplar indbundet i nyt helpergament i gammel stil. * På grund af manglende indtægter måtte teatret i Lille Grønnegade lukke i slutningen af februar 1727, og til den sidste forestilling skrev Holberg en lille epilog; manuskriptet forsvandt, men mange år senere fandt man en afskrift, som efter Holbergs godkendelse blev trykt af Høpffner. Udover den trykte udgave fra 1746 findes en ældre afskrift foretaget af Benjamin Dass fra 1732, som fremviser en del afvigelser fra den trykte tekst. Vilhelm Møller hævder i 1898, (efter grundige studier i Dass' afskrift) at epilogen blev skrevet i begyndelsen af 1725, da teatret også måtte lukke; der er flere ting, som passer bedre på året 1725 end 1727, og i epilogen findes ikke et eneste ord om påfølgende sæsoner fra 1725 til afslutningen 1727; denne påstand er senere underbygget af Hans Brix, men til gengæld mente Martensen (Holbergs Komedier 1897), at Holberg ikke blot gennemså afskriften men også forandrede og tilføjede noget i den, og hvis det er således, burde Holberg også have rettet årstallet 1727 til 1725.EM II, 449.

      London: J. Roberts, 1727. 8vo. [12], 403pp. Title printed in red-and-black. Engraved frontispiece depicting a magician in his study. Contemporary English blind-paneled calf. Provenance: Gilbert East (1793 inscription at title gutter). "Defoe again begins with a humorous preface, in which he explains that if anyone was expecting, based on the title, to find a work of science, "'a Book of Rules for Instruction in the Practice, or a Magical Grammar for Introduction to young Beginners, all I can say to such is, that they will be mistaken."' The work is instead a history of the practice of magic, beginning in ancient times and traced down to the present day. He explains how the Magi first came to deal with the Devil, and how the Devil has continued to insinuate himself throughout history, appearing to and deceiving men with false signs and wonders" (Lilly Library).

        Ichnographia urbis Jedo, quae japonici imperij metropolis & summi japonum monarchae sedes est ex mappa japonica musei Sloaniani

      Londra 1727 - Rara e importante pianta della città di Tokjo, pubblicata nell'opera The History of Japan, edita a Londra, in 2 volumi, nel 1727. Sotto questo titolo venne dato alle stampe il manoscritto inedito del medico, viaggiatore e scrittore tedesco Engelbert Kaempfer (1651–1716), il cui titolo originale era "Heutiges Japan". Alla sua morte, i manoscritti inediti vennero acquistati da Sir Hans Sloane, noto collezinista scozzese, che incaricò il suo bibliotecario svizzero, John Gaspar Scheuchzer, di tradurlo in inglese. Ne seguì una traduzione olandese del 1729, due francesi: in due volumi del 1729 e in 3 volumi nel 1732. La traduzione in tedesco, dalla prima inglese, apparve nel 1777. L'opera, non solo era la più voluminosa rispetto alle altre pubblicate, ma per la precisione della trattazione, le numerose e originali fonti utilizzate e presentate - incluse le mappe e le vedute raccolte da Kaempfer -divenne subito in Europa un riferimento imprescindibile per la conoscenza del Giappone. Acquaforte, usuali pieghe di carta, lieve e uniforme brunitura, nel complesso in ottime condizioni. Very rare and important historical plan of Tokjo, published in 1727 as part of The History of Japan, by Kaempfer - Sheuchzer. Engelbert Kaempfer (1651–1716) traveled to Russia, Persia, India, South-East Asia, and Japan between 1683 and 1693. His writings were the chief source for European knowledge about Japan: Amœnitatum exoticarum politicophysicomedicarum fasciculi V, published in 1712, is especially important for medical observations and the first extensive description of Japanese plants – and his History of Japan became the chief source of Western knowledge about the country throughout the 18th century. At Kaempfer’s death, the unpublished manuscripts were purchased by Sir Hans Sloane, and conveyed to England, among them the manuscript for a history of Japan under the title „Heutiges Japan". Sloan had the manuscript translatied into English by Johann Caspar Scheuchzer (1702–1729) and published at London, in 2 vols., in 1727. A Dutch translation was published in 1729, a French in 1729 (2 volumes) and 1732 (3 volumes). A German version – translated from the English text, was published in 1777. The Scheurchzer-Kaempfer book not only was far more voluminous than any of its predecessor, it also was far more successful. Indeed,i view of its systematic thoroughness and the manyy original sources it used and presented - including maps and other visuals colletcted by Kaempfer in Japan - it deservedly became the lodestar od Europe's views of and opinions on Japan for the next century. Copper etching, slightly browned, usual paper folds, otherwise in very good condition. Dimensioni 400 390mm

Brunet IV, p. 588. "I have carefully read over Burman's edition of Phaedrus," says Harwood, "and it is very correct and does great honour to the singular erudition and critical acumen of that great man." -- Dibdin II, 281. Erudition aside, this volume seems to be the product of intense scholarly squabbling between the great English classicist Richard Bentley and his rivals, of which Burman was one. Apparently, Bentley's inclusion of Phaedrus in his Terence of 1726 led to a falling out between Bentley and Burman, who had been planning this present edition of Phaedrus himself. Bentley had hastily published the Phaedrus to score points against another erstwhile friend, Francis Hare, later Bishop of Chichester) whose 1724 edition of Terence had been compiled with information he had obtained from Bentley, and issued prior to one projected by the latter. Hare subsequently retaliated against Bentley's Phaedrus with his caustic 1726 Epistola Critica, which is here reprinted. "The letter is in Latin, and is not only very scarce, but considered to be a very fine piece of classical criticism." (Dibdin II, p. 281). The third portion of this volume is comprised of funeral orations and inscriptions, written by various authors, in Latin and Dutch, on the occasion of Burman's death in 1741.

Proper and legal performance of the liturgy, and especially of the Mass, was an overriding concern--one might say an obsession--of the post-Tridentine Catholic Church up until the II Vatican Council. Printing had made possible the standardization of liturgical texts and rubrics to a degree unknown in the middle ages; the Holy See issued a whole series of directions to avoid heresy, sacrilege, or an invalid celebration; and Jansenism made scrupulosity the order of the day. Commentaries like this one, printed in small type and focussing on every little thing that could possibly go wrong with the Mass, became more and more common: educating clergy in how to celebrate the liturgy flawlessly according to the rubrics. This is the second edition of this commentary on the rubrics of the Mass by Paulo Maria Quarti (fl. ca. 1663), a clerk regular; it was first published in 1674, but here carries added commentaries on processions, including the Litany of the Saints, and on blessings. The title-page is handsomely printed in red and black with a woodcut vignette, and the text is simply ornamented with a few remarkable woodcut initials and headpieces. Scarce.

        LES CHATS.

      [2], 204, [16] pages. Illustrated with 9 etched plates by Caylus, of which two are folding; folding genealogical table; one engraving in the Errata. Bound in contemporary full calf gilt; red label to spine. First edition. Tear in blank margin of genealogical plate; binding repaired at spine; bookplate; else a very good copy. Necker 1377 : 'First published in 1727 Les Chats is one of the earliest books written exclusively about cats. Because of the fame of its author and the ridicule with which it was received (due to its subject matter) the book was immediately popular and is often erroneously considered the first cat book. Other early cat books are lost in obscurity but Les Chats has become a classic in its field.'

        Holy Bible

      1727. BIBLE. The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments… Oxford: John Baskett, 1727. Two volumes. Quarto, contemporary full red-brown elaborately gilt-tooled morocco rebacked with original spines laid down, raised bands, black morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $9200.Impressive 1727 Oxford quarto edition of the magisterial King James Bible, illustrated with six folding maps of “sacred geography” and 260 fine engravings by John Sturt “from designs of the greatest masters,” beautifully bound together with a 1726 Book of Common Prayer, concordances and metrical psalter in a stunning elaborate morocco binding gilt-tooled in a “cottage roof” design.“If everything else in our language should perish, [the King James Bible] would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power” (Macaulay). First published in 1611, the King James Bible is “the only literary masterpiece ever to be produced by a committee and was the work of nearly 50 translators… [who] lived at a period when the genius of the language was in full flower” (PMM 114). Bound with a 1726 Oxford edition of the Book of Common Prayer—“as a source of spiritual inspiration, it is for most Englishmen second only to the Bible” (PMM 75)—at the front of the second volume, preceded by an engraved frontispiece portrait of King George II. Sturt’s engravings, printed and sold by Richard Ware, were designed to be fitted and bound with various “house” or family Bibles such as this one. In this copy, his fine engravings depicting dramatic scenes and important people from Scripture appear two to a plate with a lovely engraved ornament depicting angels beneath; the 130 plates are appropriately bound throughout the biblical text. The six engraved folding maps of Sacred Geography (also published by Ware, 1725), each measuring approximately 15 by 18 inches when unfolded, are also bound in at relevant points. Handsomely bound in elaborately gilt-tooled full contemporary morocco using a “cottage roof” design of fleurons and foliate corner pieces within a wide, ornamental border. Separate New Testament title page dated 1726. Apocrypha bound following Revelation. Bound with a 1726 edition of Downame’s concordance and a 1723 edition of Sternhold and Hopkins’ popular metrical psalter. With additional engraved allegorical general title page; title page for Sturt’s engravings; and title page printed in red and black for Sacred Geography. Apart from the 1727 general title page, the Bible conforms to Herbert 979, a 1726 Baskett quarto, with 1726 New Testament title page, Apocrypha present and Revelation ending on leaf 4I2b (although Herbert’s copy lacked all, including title page, preceding F3). Griffiths 1726:3 (prayer book). Contemporary gift inscriptions (“Ann Bridges, a present from her Father the first visit she paid him after her Marriage”). Previous owner’s signatures, address labels to front pastedowns.Scattered light foxing, occasional light embrowning. Closed tear along hinge of folding map “Situation of Paradice” (Genesis 3). Closed tear to plate following 4A1, Volume II, not affecting images. Minor paper restoration in Volume II to plates following 3S3, 3U2, 3X7, not affecting images. Binding bright and fine. A most beautiful Bible in magnificent binding and excellent condition.
