        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.

      London: Printed for J. Roberts, in Warwick-Lane; J. Stagg, in Westminster Hall; and D. Browne, without Temple-Bar, 1727. Quarter-bound Leather. Very Good+. 4to: 80pp, with large folding copper-engraved frontispiece, "Procession of Kings and Queens with over 150 robed figures," measuring a full 44 cm x 35 cm, a second folding engraving, "The Manner of the Champions, performing the Ceremony of ye Challenge," and 12 woodcuts in the text depicting various ceremonial objects, including crowns, maces, scepters, and coronation rings. Bound in early (possibly contemporary) quarter sheep with marbled boards, rubbed along spine and corners; red morocco lettering piece, chipped but clearly legible; all edges marbled. Bookplate of Buddle Atkinson to front paste down. A sturdy, unsophisticated copy, frontispiece slightly foxed along folds, sporadic light soiling and browning, otherwise clean and bright. ESTC Citation No. T116211. Lowndes 526. Bindley pt. vi, 1039. Fourth Edition (reissue, with altered title page, of sheets from third edition). Full of fascinating information relating to the etiquette and procedure of royal ceremonies. Buddle Atkinson's bookplate appears in Hugo's Catalogue of Thomas Bewick's works, but it is, in fact, engraved on steel, not wood, and came from the workshop of Mark Lambert, one of Bewick's pupils. The plate was designed and engraved by George F. Robinson, who joined Lambert's workshop in 1841 and who, in the course of 50 years, became chief engraver and director of all art works carried out by the firm. The plate was produced when Atkinson (b.1841) was a young child, perhaps for putting in books that had been owned by his father, John Buddle, so it likely dates from 1845-1850. N. B.

The earliest version in English, that of Sir Thomas Hoby, appeared in 1561; the second, by Robert Samber, in 1724. Castiglione’s Il libro del cortegiano (The Book of the Courtier) "is a classic of Western literature: a conduct book describing the ideal courtier of the Renaissance (and to some degree the ideal court lady too); it is also a highly polished literary dialogue rich in classical lore and representative of the avant-garde culture of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Italy. Responsible for transmitting fundamental cultural ideas abroad, among them the notion of the all-rounded, or ‘Renaissance’, man or woman, the stress on grace and elegance as part of the striving for perfection, and the details of the Neoplatonic love-theory then in vogue; it is also credited with having given rise in France to the concept of the gentilhomme and in England to that of the gentleman. . . . Interwoven into the fabric of the text is a wide spectrum of topics ranging from a theory of humor to an ethically grounded view of politics. . . . Truly encyclopedic in scope, The Book of the Courtier has been hailed as a veritable compendium of Renaissance culture." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.

        The works of John Locke Esq; in three volumes.

      The third collected edition of the works of one of the most significant philosophers of the Enlightenment. London : Printed for Arthur Bettesworth, Edmund Parker, John Pemberton, and Edward Symon, 1727. Three volumes, folio, uniform contemporary full calf with double gilt fillets; elaborately gilt spines in compartments between gilt-hatched raised bands, each spine panel featuring a central starburst tool incorporating a studded shield with an azured cross, flanked by unusual corner pieces incorporating volutes and a church monument or steeple, contrasting red and black morocco labels, gilt; bindings a little rubbed on sides and extremities, front joints rubbed on all volumes and partially split on third volume (but still holding firmly); edges speckled red; pp [6], xxviii, 575, [1], [16 index]; [2], 671, [13 index]; [6], 668, [16 index]; engraved frontispiece portrait of Locke by Geo. Vertue after G. Kneller, engraved epitaph plate (as frontis. to volume II), initials, head-pieces, and ornaments; front free-endpaper of volume I inscribed by the original owner with a quote from Voltaire: "Locke is the only one who has explain'd the human understanding, in a Book where there are nothing but truths; & what renders the work perfect is, that these Truths are clear. Voltaire"; an exceptionally fine set in well-preserved contemporary bindings. The importance of Locke's philosophy can hardly be overstated; it is summed up by the DNB: "Locke's authority as a philosopher was unrivalled in England during the first half of the eighteenth century, and retained great weight until the spread of Kantian doctrines. His masculine common sense, his modesty and love of truth have been universally acknowledged; and even his want of thoroughness and logical consistency enabled him to reflect more fully the spirit of a period of compromise. His spiritual descendant, J.S. Mill, indicates his main achievement by calling him the 'unquestioned founder of the analytic philosophy of mind'... By fixing attention upon the problem of the necessary limits of thought and investigating the origin of ideas, his writings led to the characteristic method of his English successors, who substituted a scientific psychology for a transcendental metaphysic... Hume's scepticism was the most famous application of Locke's method; but Reid and his follower Dugald Stewart, while holding that the theory of 'ideas' accepted by Locke would logically lead to Hume, still hold that a sound philosophy can be constructed upon Locke's method, and regard him as one of the great teachers... In France, Locke's name is said to have been first made popular by Fontenelle. He was enthusiastically admired by Voltaire and by d'Alembert, Diderot, Helvetius, and their contemporaries. Condillac, his most conspicuous disciple in philosophy, gave to his teaching the exclusively sensational turn which Locke would have apparently disavowed. Condorcet and the 'idéologues'... owed much to Locke during the revolutionary period... He was attacked as a source of the revolutionary views by De Maistre and by other reactionary writers... The English empirical school have continued to regard Locke as their founder, though they seem to have been more immediately influenced by his followers, Berkeley and Hume,... as also in some respects by his predecessor Hobbes." The first collected edition of Works was published in folio in 1714, the second in 1723, and the last folio edition in 1759.

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.

      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).

      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.

Lacking the Pierre Giffart engravings mentioned in the listings of the two French libraries which hold the only institutional copies found by OCLC (Cat.

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. .

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. Johansen 13,8.

        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. 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. Covers detached.
