         De sectionibus conicis. Tractatus geometricus. In quo, ex natura ipsius coni, sectionum affectioens [!] facillime deducuntur. Methodo nova. London, William Johnston, 1758. 4to. With numerous illustrations on 17 folding engraved plates. Contemporary French gold-tooled red goatskin morocco, with the arms of the French King Louis XV in the centre of each board and his crowned monogram in each compartment (except that with the title) of the spine.

      - Sotheran II, 8850; Poggendorff I, col. 1009; for the armorial binding: Olivier XXV, plate 2495, 12. Splendid copy in contemporary red morocco, bound for the French King Louis XV, containing the first edition of a geometrical treatise on a new method of drawing and projecting conic sections (circles, ellipses, parabolas, hyperbolas). Hugh Hamilton (1729-1805), was a descendant of a Hugh Hamilton who settled in Ireland in the time of James I. He studied at Trinity College in Dublin, was appointed Erasmus Smith's professor of natural history in the University of Dublin in 1759, and was elected a fellow of the Royal Academy and member of the Irish Royal Academy. He later fulfilled several posts as vicar and dean and in 1799 he became bishop of Ossory. Hamilton published several learned treatises, of which the present was the most valued, as it contained several new theorems. The new analytical system of conic sections and the drawing of their projections is mainly taught by means of propositions and problems, all clearly illustrated on the large engraved plates. The present first edition was published simultaneously in both Dublin and in London. Although the book was reprinted several times it seems to be very rare today.A small blank area on the title-page cut out and restored, not approaching the text, presumably to remove an owner's name. Magnificent copy, with the coat-of-arms of Louis XV.

         Wunder-voller Schauplatz der Heiligen Märtyrer, Und zwar vornehmlich Der um der Wahrheit und des Namens Christi willen auf allerley grausame Weise Getödteten Kinder, Von Unmündigen an, bis auf Fünffzehn-jährige, Nebst einem kurtzen Anhang von den Trübsalen und Verfolgungen der Gläubigen durch alle Secula N. Testaments (.) Von Friedrich Eberhard Collin.

      Frankfurt am Main: Dominicus von Sand 1729 - (56), 664, 183, (1) Seiten. Frakturdruck. OHNE den doppelseitigen Kupferstich. Rot-schwarzer Titel mit Druckermarke (Schiff mit Wind im Heck erreicht Hafen, unten Monogramm des Druckers) Friedrich Eberhard Collin (1684-1727) war ein pietistischer Hofprediger zu Lobenstein. Eine Verfasserbiographie beinhaltet sein posthum erschienenes Werk 'Der Sieg der ersten Blut-zeugen Jesu Christi (.)'. Collins, der als Kleinkind mit seinen Eltern aus dem von den Franzosen belagerten Geburtsort Worms fliehen musste, studierte in Gießen und Jena Theologie bevor er Prediger dreier Gemeinden bei Wertheim wurde. Dieses Amt übte er wohl mit besonderer Wachsamkeit gegenüber seinen 'Schäfchen' aus, führte er doch penibel Buch über deren Namen, Kinder, Besitz geistlicher Drucke, etc. (Zu seiner nicht immer einfachen Zeit in Wertheim, vgl. auch Ritschl II, 539). 1723 wurde er vom Dienst suspendiert, tauchte jedoch schon im Folgejahr wieder als Schuldirektor auf, bevor ihn, ein weiteres Jahr später, der Graf Heinrich XV. Reuß zu Lobenstein zu seinem Hofprediger machte. In seine Zeit als Schulleiter fällt auch die Entstehung des vorliegenden Werkes, dessen Widmung er im Mai 1725 unterzeichnet. - Collins Werk ist exemplarisch für die durch den Pietismus hervorgebrachte moralische Erbauungsliteratur der Frühaufklärung. Theologische Literatur, zumal solche, die der breiter werdenden Leserschaft säkularer Werke eine starke religiöse Orientierungen des moralischen Handelns entgegensetzt, dominiert weiterhin das Buchwesen und befriedigt einen mit dem Pietismus steigenden Bedarf. Der Märtyer-Schauplatz teilt darüber hinaus in seiner Thematik und theatralen Metaphorik auch Tropen des barocken Dramas. Das Theater, das sich im 17. Jahrhundert auch als Werkzeug der konfessionellen Identitätsstiftung und Propagandamittel etablierte, will nicht die Realität abbilden, sondern präsentiert eine ständehierarchisch strukturierte und heilsgeschichtlich perspektivierte Welt, konzipiert als Theatrum mundi. Dazu gehören wesentlich die Märtyrerfiguren als erbauliche Exempel. Die inszenierte Atrocitas dient hierin schon bei Andreas Gryphius und anderen Dichtern der Mäßigung und Affektkontrolle des Rezipienten. - Der drastische Kupferstich, der durch Soldaten an Kindern verübte Gräueltaten zeigt, FEHLT. Eine Kopie des Stiches liegt bei. - Pergamenteinband etwas angeschmutzt und an den Innendeckeln stellenweise etwas gelöst. Rücken mit schwindendem handschriftlichen Rückentitel entrundet und vom Buchblock gelöst, Schnabelbildung am Frontschnitt. Innengelenke etwas abgeplatzt, das erste und letzte Blatt jeweils teilweise gelöst. Papier bis auf wenige schwache Braunflecken oder unmerkliche Spuren nur marginal färbender Wasserflecken gut erhalten. Trotz aller Alterspuren ein solides Exemplar des inhaltlich bemerkenswerten und recht seltenen Werkes. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1001 8° (18 x 10,5 cm) Pergamentband der Zeit mit durchgezogenen Bünden und rotgefärbtem Schnitt.

         Letter to an unnamed fellow freemason in Braunschweig, probably Ferdinand, Herzog von Braunschweig-Lünenburg or someone in his inner circle].Halle (Saale), 9 August 1781. 4to. Autograph letter in German, signed, written in brown ink on laid paper in a clear German hand, with foreign words and names in a Latin hand.

      - For background information: Whitehead, "A guide to the dispersal of zoological material from Captain Cook’s voyages", pp. 53-93, at pp. 68-70; Uhlig, George Forster, especially pp. 136-138. Signed autograph letter from Johann Reinhold Forster (1729-1798), professor of natural history at the University of Halle, member of the Royal Societies of London and Göttingen and very active freemason, to a fellow mason at Braunschweig, passing on information about the London goldsmith and entomologist Dru Drury (1725-1804) and his Illustrations of natural history (1770-1782), explicitly noting that Moses Harris engraved the butterflies for it and that the third volume was in press. It also makes reference to many other figures in the English scientific circles, including Joseph Banks and Henry Smeathman. The footnote refers to the engraved portrait of Linnaeus and to the 1781 supplement to his Mantissa plantarum, published at Braunschweig.After Johann Reinhold and his son Georg returned from Cook’s second voyage to the South Seas (1772-1775), they joined the masonic lodge Les neuf soers in Paris, established in 1776, where Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, Jérôme de Lalande and many other leading intellectuals met and kept in touch.Formerly folded horizontally and vertically for posting and later mounted on a stub (with traces surviving along the main fold). Slightly browned and with minor wear along the old folds, and with some small ink stains, affecting but not obscuring a few words. Still in good condition. A detailed letter giving insights into the important scientific and masonic networks in Europe between the American and the French Revolution.

         Hell Upon Earth: or the town in an uproar. Occasion'd by the late horrible scenes of forgery, perjury, street-robbery, murder, sodomy, and other shocking impieties ...

      Printed for J. Roberts in Warwick- Lane, and A. Dodd without Temple- Bar. 1729 [ii], 62pp. 12mo. Sl. browning. Handsomely rebound in modern quarter calf over marbled boards, vellum tips, red morocco label.ESTC T36083, the sole edition; seven locations in the UK; eight in North America. Scarce in commerce. A shocking portrayal of London life in the early Georgian era. Our anonymous author paints a London of 1729, expanding rapidly in geography and population, as a hellish sea of crime and destitution. 'This great, wicked, unwieldy, over-grown Town, one continued hurry of Vice and Pleasure; where nothing dwells but Absurdities, Abuses, Accidents, Accusations, Admirations,, Adventures, Adversities ...'He outlines hour by hour 'the usual observations of the Sabbath: 'Eleven o'Clock. Fine fans, rich brilliants, white hands, envious eyes, and gold snuff- boxes displaying in all parish churches. - many excellent stolen sermons preached by some clergymen who won't take pains to make worse of their own ... drunken beggars battling and breaking on anothers heads about the streets in dividing the charity of ostentatious fools and old women ...' He later comments that the 'late proceedings in our courts of law have furnished us with ample proofs, that this town abounds too plentifully with a sect of brutish creatures called sodomites ...' Our author continues in the same vain throughout attacking satirists, actors, coquettes, beaux, the inhabitants of coffee-houses, and most other citizens of the city.

         A Panegyric on the Reverend D--n S----t. In Answer to the Libel on Dr. D--y, and a Certain Great L--d

      [s.n.], [Dublin] 1729 - First edition. Woodcut headpiece. 8 pp. 12mo. 'For Gulliver divinely shews, / That Humankind are all Yahoos'. Rare copy of an anti-Swift satire variously attributed to the minor Irish poet James Arbuckle and Swift himself. The poem, which paints Swift's misanthropy as a form of self-regard, was one of a series of "libels" in response to a poetical address to Lord Carteret by Swift's friend, Patrick Delany. The poem was attributed to Swift by Ball in his edition of the correspondence on evidence gleaned from the letters; in an October 1730 letter to Lord Bathurst, Swift referred to "all the libels that have been writ against me ? and among the rest a very scrub one in verses lately written by myself." Faulkner's 1768 edition of Swift's works attributed the poem to Arbuckle. The case for Arbuckle's authorship has been more recently made by James Woolley ("Arbuckle's 'Panegyric' and Swift's Scrub Libel: The Documentary Evidence," in Contemporary Studies of Swift's Poetry, University of Delaware Press, 1981, pp. 191-209), who gathers evidence from a bound collection of Arbuckle's printed and manuscript poems - including a corrected copy of the 1730 London edition of "A Panegyric" - in the National Library of Wales: "In effect, this volume stands as his tacit claim to have written the poem, a claim the more persuasive because it is unlikely to have been made to deceive" (p. 201).

      (Sevilla), Sacalo a la luz y lo costea un Amigo del Author, año de 1729. - Petit in-8. 16ff. 112pp. Plein vélin ancien, gardes refaites, réparation ancienne au dos. Edition Originale de l'un des premiers ouvrages consacrés au phénomène social du "Cicisbeismo". Cette mode née en Italie au 18e siècle et qui s'exporta en Espagne (uniquement) dans les années suivantes, consistait à doter les dames mariées de la haute société d'un jeune "chevalier servant" qui était autorisé à les accompagner partout, tant en société que dans leur intimité. Le présent ouvrage est une violente dénonciation de ces pratiques jugées immorales et scandaleuses. Aujourd'hui, le "Cicisbeismo" est perçu comme une démarche d'émancipation féminine tendant à donner aux femmes les mêmes prérogatives que les hommes, lesquels s'affichaient souvent en compagnie de leurs maîtresses. Petite tache marginale aux derniers feuillets. Exemplaire un peu manipulé. Ex-libris manuscrit du 18e siècle, d'un couvent de Carmélites. Palau, 112322: "Raro en comercio".

Samuel Johnson attributed to it his first earnest attention to religion. But the most significant testimony is that of John Wesley, who reaped where Law had sown. Writing after they had parted company, he said: 'it will hardly be excelled, if it be equalled, in the English language, either for beauty of expression or for justice and depth of thought'" (PMM).

Folded leaves; paper spine strip; 12 pp. Bilingual title and text in Russian and German in facing columns. Lacking one leaf (pp. 5-6); slightly resized; small paper repairs; moisture stains. First and only printing of a treaty signed between Russia and Persia in February 1729, at Rasht, which was the first agreement "to deal with the sovereignty issues of the Caspian" (Troubled Waters: the Geopolitics of the Caspian, 20). The treaty marks the inability of Russia to retain the rapid conquests made in Persia under Peter the Great. After his death in 1725, a number of treaties regulated the return of territories and the resolution of existing conflicts. In the present treaty, the Russians returned territories in exchange for the mutual right to navigate the region. The treaty was quickly invalidated, however, when the Afghan ruler of Persia, Ashraf Hotak, was overthrown by Nader Shah, who went on to rule as Shah of Persia. No auction records located.
