      Köln, Joh. Eberhard Fromart, 1728.. . Umfassende Neubearbeitung der wohl ersten deutschen Übersetzung aus dem Jahr 1673. Die "Confessiones" sind die erste Selbstbeichte großen Stils in der Weltliteratur, das "großartigste Erbe für alle subjektiven Darstellungen des Mittelalters und der Neuzeit" (Beyer-Fröhlich), das "zu einem Leitparadigma der Autobiographiegeschichte geworden" ist (Wagner-Egelhaaf). "Das Werk ist ein literarisches Dokument sui generis im genauen Sinn des Wortes: es ordnet sich in keine literarische Gattung der Antike ein; es läßt sich weder mit den philosophischen Selbstbetrachtungen etwa eines Marc Aurel vergleichen noch mit der ihm immerhin thematisch verwandten Schrift Ad Donatum' des Cyprianus aus Karthago. Und obwohl seit Augustin kein Mangel ist an Selbstdarstellungen, die, von Petrarca über Rousseau bis in die Gegenwart, bewußt oder unbewußt in seiner Nachfolge stehen, hat es nichts Ähnliches mehr gegeben. Sein Subjektivismus', dem erst das Christentum mit seiner hohen Bewertung der menschlichen Seele den Boden bereitete, scheidet es vom antiken Denken und Fühlen, sein dialogischer Bezug auf ein transzendentes Gegenüber von den späteren autobiographischen Erzeugnissen. Es ist im zweifachen Sinn Bekenntnis: Lebensbeichte vor Gott und preisendes Bekenntnis zu Gott ... Die Einzigartigkeit der Confessiones' liegt nicht allein in der Subtilität des Erfassens psychischer Vorgänge, in ihrem rücksichtslosen Freimut, ihrer religiösen Intensität und dem Scharfsinn der philosophischen Reflexionen; ohne Vergleich ist, wie dies alles zu einem Ganzen verschmolzen ist, das jeder Einordnung in ein literarisches Schema widersteht. Das Werk ist Tatsachenbericht, psychologische und philosophische Abhandlung, Hymnus und seelsorgerische Predigt in einem" (Gisela Hesse in KNLL). - Titel in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt. Sauberes Exemplar. Selten. - Wagner-Egelhaaf S. 107. Klaiber S. 2. Beyer-Fröhlich S. 28 f.

Zweite Werkausgabe (eine erste, jedoch weniger vollständige, war bereits 1707 erschienen), herausgegeben von J.-B. Casotti und A. F. Seghezzi. Der toskanische Dichter und Kirchenmann G. della Casa (1503-56) war Erzbischof von Benevent und päpstlicher Nuntius in Venedig, wo er die Inquisition einführte. Sein berühmtes Sitten- und Erziehungsbuch "Galateo" wurde in Italien so sprichwörtlich wie im deutschsprachigen Raum der "Knigge". - Zur vorliegenden Edition gehören auch einige Teile mit eigenem Titelblatt bzw. Impressum, die nicht von Pasinello gedruckt und wohl auch separat vertrieben wurden: "Le terze Rime di M. Giovanni della Casa" (18 SS.) am Schluß von Bd. 1 trägt das Kolophon "In Usecht al Reno appresso Jacopo Broedelet 1726"; die "due Orazione di Monsignor Gio. della Casa" (51 SS.) im 3. Band haben das Titelblatt "Lione, Bartolommeo Martin", o. J., danach folgen "Aggiunta di alcune cose appartenenti al primo tomo delle opere di Mons. della Casa" (19 SS.). - "Bonne edition, plus complete que celle de 1707 [...] A la fin du 3e volume doivent se trouver deux morceaux, qui ont une pagination particuliere, et dont l'un est un dialogue. intitule 'il Tasso'" (Brunet). - Papierbedingt teils etwas braunfleckig; zahlreiche Bleistiftmarginalien.

Rückenschildchen in rot und schwarz. 8vo.. Seltene, als Wiener Dissertation herausgegebene lateinische Ausgabe von Mariottes erstmals 1686 erschienenem Hauptwerk, "Traite du mouvement des eaux et des autres corps fluides", in dem u. a. die sog. Mariotte'sche Röhre besprochen wird. Mariotte (um 1620-1684) war Prior von St. Martin sous Beaune bei Dijon und Gründungsmitglied der frz. Akademie der Wissenschaften. "The scope and originality of his observations of fluid motion surely warrant placing him at the head of the French school of hydraulics [...] Not only did he seek in this volume to deal with liquids and gases, but his approach was so new at its time and yet so characteristic of many to follow that a detailed review of the work is in order" (Rouse/Ince, History of Hydraulics, 63ff.). - Durchgehend etwas wellig. - De Backer/Sommervogel IV, 413f., 3.

        Tabulae anatomica ... Praefatione, ac notis illustravit Joh. Maria Lancisius. Editio Roma altera.

      Rom, Lorenz & Thomas Pagliarini, 1728.. Folio. XXVIII, 79 S., 5 n.n. Bl. Mit gestochenem Porträt, gestochener Titelvignette und 47 Kupfertafeln. Pergamentband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem, rotem Rückenschild.. Blake 139. - Choulant 60. - Wellcome II, 536. - Dritte Ausgabe, zweiter Druck von den Originalplatten, hier erstmals mit dem Porträt des Kardinals Albano. "A romantic history attaches to this fine collection of plates, drawn by Euchtachius himself and completed in 1552. They remained unprinted and forgotten in the Vatican Library until discovered in the early 18th century, and where then presented by Pope Clement XI. to his physician, the famous Lancisi. The latter published them in 1714 together with his own notes. 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 adrenale and the abducens nerve, and gave the first acccurate description of the uterus. He also described the cochlea, the muscels of the thorat and the origin of the optic nerves" (Garrison-M. 391 zur Ausg. 1714). - Eustachius ist in seinen anatomischen Darstellung die Alternative zu Vesal. Hatte Vesal beabsichtigt die Autopsie durch möglichst naturgetreue Illustrationen zu ersetzen, so war es die Absicht von Eustachius aus der Vielzahl seiner vorgenommenen Autopsien ein modellhaftes Abbild zu liefern. Bereits Albrecht von Haller hat diesen Unterschied zwischen Vesal und Eustachius erkannt. - Breitrandiges Exemplar. Stellenweise schwach stockfleckig. Im Innenfalz durch Papierstreifen verstärkt. Innendeckel fleckig. Titel und Porträt leicht gebräunt. Einband etwas fleckig. Ecken und Kapitale mit Pergament verstärkt. Rückenschild teils abgeplatzt.

        AN ADDRESS TO THE INHABIANTS [sic] OF THE TWO GREAT CITIES OF LONDON AND WESTMINSTER: IN RELATION TO A PASTORAL LETTER, SAID TO BE WRITTEN BY THE BISHOP OF LONDON, TO THE PEOPLE OF HIS DIOCESS: OCCASION'D BY SOME LATE WRITINGS IN FAVOUR OF INFIDELITY

      London: Printed and Sold by J. Peele, at Locke's Head..., 1728.. 72pp. Octavo (signed in 4s). Extracted from nonce pamphlet volume, lower edges partially untrimmed. Some modest foxing early and late, extremely faint tidemark to lower portion of a number of leaves, but otherwise a very good copy. The rare first edition of this response to Bishop Gibson's pastoral letter - one of two attributed to Tindal - in which the noted freethinking Deist takes to task the Bishop's implicit elevation of faith above reason, and defends in general freedom of thought and discourse against subjugation to religious authority. In an interesting side note to Tindal's response to Gibson's assertion "That in some late Writings publick Stews have been openly vindicated...," he makes reference to the celebrated pseudonymously published 1724 pamphlet by Mandeville, A MODEST DEFENCE OF PUBLICK STEWS .... This 1728 printing is rare: ESTC locates only seven copies, of which four are in North America (BYU, UCLA, Huntington and General Theological). It was reprinted in 1729 (a much more common edition, with the spelling error on the title corrected), and again in somewhat revised form, in 1730. NCBEL notes only the 1729 and 1730 editions. ESTC N29243. NCBEL II:1868.

      Lugduni Batavorum: Apud Samuelem Luchtmans, 1728 Pharsalia, Lucan's (39-68 A.D.) great heroic poem on the struggle between Caesar and Pompey after the crossing of the Rubicon, enjoyed great popularity during the Renaissance; in fact it was probably even more popular than Virgil. This is one of the two best quarto variorum editions. The other, which appeared in 1740, adds some notes and removes others so that the serious collector would do well to have both. The editor is Frans van Oudendorp (1696-1761), professor of history and Latin eloquence at the University of Leiden, who also produced esteemed editions of Julius Caesar, Suetonius, Obsequens, Apuleius, and others. . Full contemporary black straight-grained morocco. Covers and spine ruled in gilt, all edges gilt, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers. . Thick quarto. Engraved frontispiece, engraved folding map, title-page in black and red. First few leaves and frontispiece lightly foxed. A fine copy in a handsome binding. A very excellent edition; it contains the ancient Scholia, the select notes of various ancient and modern editorsâ?¦with the editors's own remarks and annotations, in which he has explained the subject of his author in a concise and perspicuous manner" (Dibdin).

        TWO DISSERTATIONS CONCERNING SENSE, AND THE IMAGINATION. WITH AN ESSAY ON CONSCIOUSNESS

      London: Printed for J. Tonson, 1728. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. The Macclesfield Copy of a Rare and Important Anti-Locke Work On Cognition. 213 x 130 mm (8 3/8 x 5 1/8"). 4 p.l., 231 pp. FIRST EDITION. Pleasing contemporary sprinkled calf, double gilt-rule edging to covers, raised bands, spine panels with large complex gilt floral ornament, red morocco label. Decorative and historiated woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials. First three leaves with small embossed armorial stamp of the Macclesfield Library and front pastedown with matching armorial Macclesfield bookplate. Buickerood, "Two Dissertations," in "1650-1850: Ideas, Aesthetics, and Inquiries in the Early Modern Era," VII, 51-86. Leather a bit dried, spine top slightly rubbed and with two small cracks, very minor nicks and spotting to covers, but the original unsophisticated binding completely solid and still quite appealing. A trace of foxing here and there, otherwise a nearly fine copy internally, the text very clean and fresh, and with quite ample margins as well as deep impressions of the type. Attributed, with some uncertainty, to Zachary Mayne, this is an important early work on cognition that was written in forceful response to the doctrines of John Locke's "Essay on Human Understanding," which the author calls "very dangerous and pernicious." Locke believed that all knowledge stemmed from an initial intake of data through the senses, thus contradicting Plato's theory of ideas, which posits a higher form of understanding independent of sentient perception. Our author objects that Locke puts humanity on the level of the animals. James Buickerood in his lengthy exploration of "Two Dissertations" says that our author's "ultimate purpose is to defend the dignity of human nature by way of establishing a sharp distinction between it and animal nature, which he effects by offering what he claims to be the first extended analysis of the concept of consciousness." Buickerood conceeds that, next to the influence of Locke's work, the present volume cannot measure up in importance, but he does say that in the 18th century "explicit use is made of its arguments and analyses in influential texts such as Edmund Law's English edition of William King's 'De Origine Mali' (which was closely studied by David Hume), and the second edition of Chambers's 'Cyclopaedia,' as well as publication of more restricted scope." In the 19th century, the work was used by philosophers and scholars such as Wilhelm Tennemann, Friederich Überweg, and Noah Porter, who "attributed considerable philosophic significance to" it. And, says Buickerood, Sir William Hamilton "understood its conception of consciousness to bear strong similarities to his own influential position." In general, Buickerood concludes, "the attention and regard [our book] has received has not been proportionate to its worth." The identity of the author is wrapped in uncertainty. Our best guess is that he was Zachary Mayne (1631-94), a clergyman and Oxford graduate who was described by Oliver Cromwell as "eminently godly." Mayne must have written the present work shortly after Locke's "Essay" was published in 1690, but for some reason Mayne's response was only published long after his death, in this first edition of 1728. Like a number of other little treasures from the Macclesfield collection, this is an early English work on an important subject that is of remarkable rarity, especially for a Tonson imprint: ABPC records no other copy at auction since at least 1975, and no other copy seems to be on the market at present.

      apud Franciscum Metternich,, Coloniae Agrippinae, 1728 - In-4° (240x180mm), pp. (40), 840, legatura coeva p. pergamena con titolo su tassello su dorso a nervetti. Tagli rossi spruzzati. Frontespizio in rosso e nero. Antiporta incisa su rame con scena di adorazione delle Vergine, raffigurata in gloria con il Bambino Gesù in braccio. Fregi tipografici incisi su legno, testo su doppia colonna. Macchie alla pergamena, bruniture consuete, aloni sparsi. Buon esemplare nel complesso. Ristampa di Colonia di questa vera e propria enciclopedia mariana elaborata in età barocca dal Marracci (Torcigliano, 1604-Roma, 1675), la cui intera opera fu orientata allo studio della figura della Vergine. Molte volte ristampata e costituente un punto di riferimento imprescindibile per gli studi di mariologia, venne pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1648 col titolo "Bibliotheca Mariana", per assumere poi questo definitivo titolo nella ristampa del 1683. "Pervasa di spiritualità mariana, l’esistenza del Marracci fu contraddistinta dall’impegno profuso nello sviluppo di questo tipo di pietà attraverso una vastissima operazione di carattere bibliografico, finalizzata a raccogliere in una sorta di summa tutto lo scibile sulla figura della Madre di Dio. Nonostante alcune delle sue opere siano andate perdute durante il periodo della soppressione napoleonica degli ordini religiosi (il fratello Ludovico ne aveva classificate 115), se ne contano ancora oggi 84, di cui 32 a stampa e 52 manoscritte. L’opera che lo fa considerare tuttora il "bibliografo della Madre di Dio" è la Bibliotheca Mariana (Roma 1648; una recente edizione ibid. 2005): un repertorio alfabetico degli autori (ben 2678) che a partire dal I secolo fino alla prima metà del Seicento si sono occupati di mariologia. La Bibliotheca, in cui fu dato ampio spazio alla biografia dei personaggi citati, fu arricchita successivamente da un’Appendiz edita nel 1683 da Peter Ketteler a Colonia." (Lisa Saracco in D.B.I, LXX, 2007). Cfr. Graesse, IV, p. 415: "'Catalogue Bibliographique très rare".

        A View of Sir Isaac Newton's Philosophy.

      London: Printed by S. Palmer 1728 - FIRST EDITION. 4to, 288 x 218 mms., pp. [50], 407 [408 blank], engraved vignette on title-page, other engraved vignettes and illustrations in text (by John Pine after John Grison), 12 folding engraved plates, recently rebound in quarter calf, spine gilt in compartments to a floral motif, red morocco label, blue marbled boards. An attractive copy. Although Pemberton (1694 - 1771) had a medical degree, he practiced medicine only sporadically. His interest in mathematics led him to show some of his work to the mathematician John Keill, and that brought him into contact with Newton; this book was one of the results. Voltaire in his Letters concerning the English Nation (1733) made extensive use of Pemberton's commentary. The work also formed part of the mathematical tripos at Cambridge shortly after it was published. It is also notable for being the first book to use Caslon's Roman typeface. The poetic tribute by the sixteen-year-old Richard Glover, author of Leonidas (1737) and other epic poems, is usually dismissed as doggerel: raise your hands those who understood Newton at sixteen and had a command of classical literature and prosody. Pemberton returned the compliment in 1738 with one of his works on aesthetics, Observations on Poetry, especially the Epic, occasioned by the late Poem upon Leonidas; in 1753 he published Some Few Reflections on the Tragedy of Boadicea, also by Glover. Among the subscribers is one "Capt. John Price." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In-quarto (190 X 246) veau fauve brun, dos cinq nerfs, caissons dorés ornés aux petits fers, pièce de titre maroquin grenat, large frise dorée en queue, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque) ; (20) ff. de titre, préface, catalogue des oeuvres de Newton et avertissement de l'éditeur anglais, 416 pages, (2) ff. de table, approbation, privilège et errata.

PREMIÈRE ÉDITION FRANCAISE de cette histoire des premières grandes civilisations, à savoir celles des Grecs, Egyptiens, Assyriens, Babyloniens, Mèdes et Perses. L'édition originale, posthume, a été publiée à Londres la même année, et traduite de l'anglais en français par François Granet et Marthan. COMPLET des TROIS PLANCHES dépliantes gravées sur cuivre, représentant des plans du Temple de Salomon. Composé par Isaac NEWTON (1643-1727) pour son propre délassement, ce système chronologique a été publié à son insu par un certain Abbé Conti, à qui Newton en avait confié une copie. Il se trouva ainsi obligé, contre son intention, d'en donner une édition plus fidèle, mais il ne put que la préparer, la mort le surprenant avant sa publication. Pierre Daunou (1761-1740) a donné dans la "Biographie Universelle" de Michaud une longue note érudite à propos de cet ouvrage, note qu'il conclut en ces termes : «En perdant sa base astronomique, le système chronologique de Newton ne repose plus que sur des considérations relatives à l'histoire, à la durée des générations et des règles, aux progrès des sociétés, des arts et de l'idolâtrie. Quelques graves que soient ces observations, et quelque incertitude qu'elles puissent répandre sur la chronologie vulgaire, elles ne suffisnet point assurément pour en établir une nouvelle. Mais ce système est un très grand fait dans l'histoire de la science chronologique ; et il sert au moins à confirmer ce qu'à dit Varron, que l'âge historique ne commence qu'à la première olympiade » (Tome XXX, pages 397 à 400). Exemplaire de Louis-Nicolas-Jean-Joachim de CAYROL (1775-1859), député de 1820 à 1822, commissaire des guerres sous la Révolution, puis commissaire ordonnateur et sous-intendant militaire.

        The Deserts of Egypt , Arabia & Syria with Cyprus

      Middle East: Augsburg, Seutter, Matthäus c 1728-42. Copper engraved map of Cyprus, Egypt and Syria from Seutter's "Atlas Novus". Original old colour; verso blank The map shows the the Eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus as it lies off the coasts of Egypt, Arabia & Syria. The map is oriented North east with Cyprus at the top centre and the Red Sea also in the centre of the map. The map is obviously a copy of the map by Sanson/Jaillot , re engraved but with most elements included, even to the pirate ships that appear in the sea off Palestine; the shape of Cyprus is slightly different from the earlier map. The decorative title cartouche, scale and the compass rose are re engraved. Good dark impression; slight dampstain to lower margin just entering the image at centrefold; lower centrefold split with repair. Seutter, Matthäus (The Elder): 1678–1757, Seutter was an engraver, globe-maker and publisher. Born in Augsburg in 1685, the son of a goldsmith. Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg in 1697, apprenticed as an engraver to Johann Baptist Homann. in 1707 later he returned to Augsburg subsequently working in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in the city. He founded the Seutter publishing house and print shop in 1710, producing maps, atlases, and globes., which became a primary competitor to Homann. Very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and none of the necessary connections to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Therefore Seutter copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models (approximately 500 pieces). His "Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt' appeared in 1725 with 46 maps: the "Atlas Novus" various editions in 1728, 1730, 1736, 1742; the "Grosser Atlas" in 1734 with 131 maps, and the pocket atlas "Atlas minor in 1744 with 64 maps. After Matthäus Seutter died in 1757, his son, Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the business for five more years.
