EUSTACHIUS Bartholomaeus
R. Bernabò, 1728. in-folio, ff. XXVIII, 79, (11, di indice), leg. coeva p. pergamena rigida, tassello con titolo oro al dorso. Frontesp. a stampa rossa e nera con inc. in rame raffig. un teatro anatomico dis. ed inc. da P. Leo Ghezzi, ritratto di Papa Clemente XI (Annibale Albani) cui l'opera è dedicata, dis. da N. Ricciolini ed inc. da C. Gregori, e la serie delle superbe 47 tavole anatomiche inc.a piena pag. Seconda edizione (la prima era apparsa nel 1714) di una delle opere più rare nella storia della medicina e odontoiatria per l'importanza dei primi studi sui reni, il sistema venoso, l'udito e i denti. Celebre e rara edizione delle tavole anatomiche di Bart. Eustachio (San Severino 1520 -1574), la quale fu pubblicata con le tavole tratte dai rami originali del 1552, che erano rimasti inediti per oltre 160 anni; ritrovati finalmente da Giov. Maria Lancisi e presentati al Papa, furono ripubblicati dall'archiatra pontificio con proprie note esplicative. "Ces tables d'Eustachi sont à beaucoup de points de vue plus exactes que les célèbres planches de Vésale. Les représentations du squelette sont fidèles; les figures des os crâniens et faciaux sont remarquables; les organes auditifs sont minutieusement représentés" (Histoire générale de la médecine, t. III, p.156). Esemplare puro, ampi margini (qualche fioritura della carta).

Bartolomeo Eustachi avait fait réaliser ces gravures pour un traité anatomique destiné à concurrencer celui de Vésale ; cet écrit n’était jamais paru et les planches ne furent redécouvertes qu’en 1714 par Johannes Lancisi qui les fit publier avec des notes. Heirs of Hippocrates [324 (ed. 1714) : "With the intention of publishing an anatomical text, Eustachi had completed the drawings for his work and the plates had been engraved by 1552. The text, however, was never completed and Eustachi's notes to the plates were lost except for the eight which had been published in his lifetime. The plates were inherited by Eustachi's assistant and were eventually deposited in the Vatican Library, where they were uncovered a century and a half later and published by the papal physician, Giovanni Maria Lancisi (see No. 687 ff.), who added his elucidations and included the previously published eight plates with Eustachi's commentary. In all, there are forty-seven plates. Although from an artistic standpoint they are not as well done as the anatomical plates of Vesalius, … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

En 1728, Dom Calmet fut appelé comme abbé de Senones, la capitale de la principauté de Salm. C'est dans la grande abbaye vosgienne qu'il travailla et vécut la dernière partie de son existence, entretenant une correspondance avec de nombreux savants. Il y mourut le 25 octobre 1757. Dom Calmet a laissé une œuvre immense. L'ouvrage le plus connu est son Histoire de Lorraine dont la deuxième édition fut écrite à Senones. C'est aussi à Senones qu'il rédigea une œuvre à présent oubliée, une Histoire universelle en 17 volumes, à laquelle Voltaire collabora quelques jours en 1753 ; une Bible en latin et en français, avec un Commentaire littéral et critique sur tous les livres de l'Ancien et Nouveau Testament (Paris (1707-1716 ; 26 vol. in-4). Le Commentaire, œuvre majeure de l'abbé de Senones, qui revenait sans cesse opérer des corrections, ou vérifier des traductions, a été reproduit à part sous le titre de Trésor d'antiquités sacrées et profanes, à partir de 1722, en 9 volumes. La réimpression de cette Histoire ecclésiastique & civile de la Lorraine, Nancy, 1728, en … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bartolomeo Eustachi
Rome, 1728. In Latin. Bound in the original pigskin binding. With some ink scribbles and other marks to the covers. Faint title visible to spine. Bumping to corners. Pigskin has split along front edge. Binding fairly tight, though the stitching has stretched. Ink splashes and previous owner's neat inscriptions to front endpaper. Minor browning to first few pages, although they remain legible. Liberally illustrated throughout with full-page anatomical drawings in great detail. Light foxing and browning throughout, though the pages remain legible and clear. Overall, this book is in remarkably good condition, given its age. The illustrations are very well rendered and accurate, and the binding has remained resilient. This is a particularly large book of folio size.

[Pope, Alexander]
[London]: Dublin, Printed, London Reprinted for A. Dodd, 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. Full red morocco gilt, a.e.g. by Riviere. 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.

London: John Watts, 1728. First edition. [viii], 82, [2] pp. 8vo. Disbound. First three leaves detached. In a custom gray card folder. 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. Love in Several Masques would run for only 4 nights, and Fielding would shortly depart for Holland to study, his next theatrical works not appearing until 1730. Cross III, p. 290
