      Lambesc, 1728, plein maroquin de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, filet doré et fleurons sur les plats, tranches dorées. -Très bel exemplaire dans un très beau maroquin : ce qui est exceptionnel pour un instrument de travail. - in-12 de (8)-510-(2) pp. ; P. Masson, Les Bouches-du-Rhône, biographie, 1ère partie, p. 51 ; P. Arabeyre, J.-L. Halperin et J. Krynen, Dict. historique des juristes français, p. 40 ; Dict. de biographie française, V-col. 608 ; Achard, Histoire des hommes illustres de la Provence, I-p. 539 à 543."Né à Aix, où son père était contrôleur de la Chancellerie auprès du Parlement, Barrigue de Montvalon entra dans cette compagnie en qualité de conseiller clerc en 1702. Lorsqu'éclata le conflit entre le Parlement et la Cour des Aides d'Aix en 1725, il fut envoyé à Paris pour défendre les intérêts de son corps d'origine devant le Conseil du Roi. Sa bonne connaissance du droit, connue de d'Aguesseau, aurait incité le Chancelier à le consulter avant la rédaction des ordonnances de 1731 sur les donations et de 1735 sur les testaments et les successions." (Dict. hist. des juristes français)."Il intervint en faveur du Père Girard en 1731, et fit imprimer les Motifs des juges qui ont mis le P. Jean-Baptiste Girard hors de cours et de procès. Dans l'affaire de la suppression des Jésuites, il fit partie de la minorité qui s'opposa le 5 juin 1762 à l'arrêt supprimant provisoirement les collèges et les noviciats de l'ordre. Il fut poursuivi le 30 juin pour avoir fait entendre que le réquisitoire prononcé par le procureur général dans cette occasion, était un tissu de faussetés." (Dict. de biographie française).Achard, avec sa générosité provençale, le considère comme "l'un des plus grands magistrats de ce siècle" [XVIIIe].Le Précis des ordonnances circula d'abord sous forme manuscrite à l'usage de plusieurs magistrats. En 1752, le Parlement exigea de Barrigue de Montvalon que son ouvrage fût imprimé, ce qui fut fait la même année.Ce manuscrit se présente par ordre alphabétique de "Abolition (lettres d')" à "Usure". Les pages sont divisées en deux colonnes, encadrées d'un filet à l'encre rouge ; l'une donne un résumé succinct de la matière et l'autre la date et l'article du texte législatif qui la concerne.

        Tabulae Anatomicae... -

      Roma, Pagliarini, 1728. In-folio (35,8 x 24,5 cm.). P. pergamena coeva. Antiporta allegorica con ritratto del cardinale Albani, vignetta sul frontespizio che mostra una dissezione e 47 tavole anatomiche, il tutto inciso in rame. XXVIII, 79, (11) pp.; qualche leggera fioritura, ma buon esemplare. Seconda edizione delle celebri tavole anatomiche, incise nel 1552 ma stampate per la prima volta nel 1714. Si erano infatti perse nella Biblioteca Vaticana dove vennero ritrovate agli inizi del '700 ed affidate da Clemente XI a Giov. Maria Lancisi perché le publicasse con un suo commento. Le due edizioni romane sono particolarmente pregiate per essere le uniche stampate con i rami originali: le altre (Amsterdam 1722, Leyden 1744 ecc.) sono delle copie. Choulant-Frank, Anatomical Illustration, p. 202. Wellcome II, 536. Cf. Blake 139 e Garrison & M. 391: «These plates are more accurate than the work of Vesalius; Singer was of the opinion that had they appeared in 1552 Eustachius would have ranked with Vesalius as one of the founders of modern anatomy. He discovered the Eustachian tube, the thoracic duct, the adrenals and the abducens nerve, and gave the first accurate description of the uterus. He also described the cochlea, the muscles of the throat and the origin of the optic nerves». Second edition. The copper plates remained unpublished for over 160 years until they were rediscovered in the Vatican Library by Giovanni Maria Lancisi, the papal physician, who published them with his own commentaries in 1714. Only the two Rome editions were printed from the original copper plates. With a frontispiece, a vignette on title and 47 engr. anatomical plates. A little light foxing but a good copy in contemp. vellum.

      London: Printed for Samuel Illidge; and John Hooke, 1728. First Edition. Full-Leather. Fair. Title continued: Contained in a Succession of Twenty nine Kings, Compiled from the Greek and Latin Historians and other Writers, and the Chronology settled. 372 p. Full calf with raised bands. Spine cracked at both ends but gold impressing in good condition. Front hinge cracked. Heavy scuffing to bottom front cover. Decorative edges visible but worn.

Thomas Lewis (1689-1749?), a controversial preacher, received his BA from Corpus Christi College, Oxford, in 1711 and was ordained in 1713. He was forced into hiding due to the libelous nature of his publication, The Scourge, in Vindication of the Church of England, 1717, in which he criticized Protestant dissenters. He continued to publish controversial writings, however, on such topics as the dangers of burying the dead in churchyards. This history concerns ancient Parthia (modern Iran) with each chapter representing a king's reign. Has margin notes and index.

        Oppiano Della pesca, e della caccia tradotto dal greco, e illustrato con varie annotazioni da Anton Maria Salvini al Serenissimo principe Eugenio di Savoja tenente generale cesareo.

      In Firenze: nella stamperia di Sua Altezza Reale : appresso il Tartini, e 'l Franchi, 1728 - In-8 (17 cm) XVII (1) 510 (2). Marca editoriale incisa al frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero. Piena pergamena coeva. Tagli rossi. Oppiano di Apamea (in greco: ?pp?a???, Oppianòs) (Apamea (o Pella), Seconda metà II sec. d.C. – dopo il 212 d.C.?) è stato un poeta greco antico. Oppiano, nativo di Apamea, sarebbe vissuto durante il regno del dell'imperatore Caracalla. La sua opera, comunque, è spesso accreditato al più famoso in precedenza Oppiano di Corico in Cilicia (l'attuale sud della Turchia) ed è possibile che il suo vero nome non fosse Oppiano, anche se divenne noto come tale dalla confusione dei due scrittori. Ad Oppiano è attribuito, nei manoscritti, un poema sulla caccia (Cynegetica), dedicato a Caracalla, verosimilmente dopo il 211. L'opera, di 2144 versi esametri, in quattro libri, inizia, nel libro I, dopo il topico proemio, con la descrizione del cacciatore ideale, della sua attrezzatura e dei cani da caccia. Nel libro II (di vv. 628), il poeta si cimenta con la descrizione di svariati animali cacciabili con il cane: toro, cervo, antilope, gazzella, capra e pecora, elefante, rinoceronte, pantera, gatto, scoiattolo, riccio e toporagno, scimmia. La descrizione continua nel libro III, che si apre con un secondo proemio: leone, leopardo, lince, orso, asino, cavallo, lupo e iena, tigre, cinghiale, porcospino, volpe, giraffa). Infine, nel libro IV, un proemio conclusivo apre la descrizione sulla caccia ai leoni, leopardi, orsi, gazzelle e volpi). L'opera ha una sovrabbondanza di similitudini che, spesso, assumono un tono quasi grottesco e risulta, inoltre, incompiuta, arrestandosi dopo alcune informazioni sulla sagacia delle volpi; essa fu edita per la prima volta da Aldo Manuzio nel 1517 a cura di Lorenzo Lippi, insieme all'opera sulla pesca di Oppiano di Anazarbo. Una prima traduzione italiana in versi fu quella del Salvini, pubblicata a Firenze nel 1728. Sempre a questo Oppiano si deve il poema sulla caccia con il vischio, ossia gli Ixeutikà, in 3 libri, di cui resta una parafrasi in prosa composta da un certo Eutecnio in età medievale. Dedica a Eugenio di Savoia. Ottimo esemplare. 18mo secolo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

César-Pierre Richelet was a 17th-century French grammarian and lexicographer who edited this first methodically-organized dictionary of the French language. Richelet rejected dialectic, archaic and trivial words and only included words in general use at the time, supported by literary quotations. The first edition appeared in 1680 and was ordered to be burned but was rescued by Richelet and reissued in 1681. Many later editions, including this one by Pierre Aubert in 1728, appeared after Richelet's death. An abridged version of 1759 was more popular than the original but various editions continued right into the early 19th century. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Circulus Suevicus in quo ducatus Wirtembergensis

      Artist: Seutter Matthias ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1728 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 50 x 58; - description: Map of Swabia; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

        Love in Several Masques. A Comedy, as it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal ?

      John Watts, London 1728 - First edition. [viii], 82, [2] pp. 8vo. Fielding's First Play. First edition of the 20-year-old Fielding's first play and his second surviving publication. "Fielding's career as dramatist began auspiciously enough when, as an unknown author in his twentieth year, his first play, the comedy Love in Several Masques, was staged by Cibber at Drury Lane-an extraordinary favour due probably to the influence of Lady Mary, to whom Fielding dedicated the published version" (ODNB). In the Preface Fielding acknowledges the difficulty of competing for audiences with Gay's Beggar's Opera and Vanburgh's The Provok'd Husband.

        Belgium foederatum

      Artist: Seutter Matthias ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1728 - - technic: Wood engraving; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 50 x 57; - description: Map shows total Belgium; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

        The Dunciad. An Heroic Poem. In Three Books

      Dublin, Printed, London Reprinted for A. Dodd, [London] 1728 - First edition. Engraved frontispiece (Griffith Variety 1 with "Dunci-" on second line of pendant). viii, [ii], 51, [1] pp. Collation: A-E^6 F^2. 12mo. The distinguished Hagen-Pforzheimer-Slater copy of the first edition of Pope's satirical masterpiece, a mock-epic reply to his critics (primarily Lewis Theobald) and other hack writers, as well as a broader critique of George II and Walpole. Published anonymously under a misleading imprint suggesting a Dublin first edition (which does not exist). Editions followed in 1729 (Dunciad Variorum), 1742 (A New Dunciad), and 1743 (Dunciad in four books).This 12mo impression is the first and precedes the 8vo printing of the same year. Bound with the second edition of Edmund Curll's Key, which spells out Pope's allusions and provides full names where Pope only supplies a first initial. Thus the close of the first stanza ("Still Dunce the second reigns like Dunce the first?") is glossed as "Meaning Mr. Theobald succeeds Mr. Settle, if he has not a worse Meaning," which of course he has, referring to the accession of George II the previous year.Also bound with the first edition of The Progress of Dullness, which takes Pope's original title to The Dunciad and the one used to announce a sequel on the final leaf of the first edition.

        Della satirica poesia de' Greci e della Satira de' Romani. Libri due tradotti dal latino in Lingua Toscana da Anton Maria Salvini e il Ciclope d'Euripide tradotto dal Greco dal Medesimo

      Appresso Giuseppe Manni,, In Firenze, 1728 - Cm. 21,5, pp. xx, 186 (2) 26 (2). Alcune testate, capolettera e lo stemma Guicciardini (il dedicatario) inciso al verso del frontespizio. Solida e perfetta legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, dorso liscio con titoli e fregi in oro. Esemplare genuino e marginoso, in ottimo stato di conservazione con solo una lieve brunitura ad un quaderno. Edizione originale della traduzione italiana per quest'opera in cui l'autore, per primo, offre una profonda investigazione sul genere letterario satirico di greci e romani. Vi afferma che la poesia satirica dei latini è assai differente da quella dei greci, opinione poi più volte abbracciatta o contestata. In sostanza, Casaubon redasse la prima moderna monografia sulla satira, lavoro che fu considerato come principale lezione per oltre due secoli. Cfr. Brunet I, 1613-14 per l'originale del 1605.
