Most of the individual works were originally published in the 1640s in sole editions, almost all of which are now very rare. Volume I has two essays on jurisprudence: the Tres relaçõens de direito, and the Lustre ao dezembargo do paço. Volume II includes essays by Pinto Ribeiro on D. João de Castro, Viceroy of India (pp. 113-67), on the pen vs. the sword, on the Portuguese nobility and its privileges, on papal confirmation of Portuguese bishops, and several on the Restauração of 1640. Pinto Ribeiro played a major role in persuading the Duque de Bragança, D. João, to claim the throne as D. João IV.The first volume is dedicated to D. Antonio Ribeyro de Abreu, a secular priest, official of the Coimbra Inquisition and Senate. Volume II is dedicated to D. Francisco Xavier de Menezes, Conde da Ericeyra.Pinto Ribeiro (d. 1649) held a doctorate of laws from the Universidade de Coimbra and was a magistrate and confidential advisor to D. Luisa de Gusmán, the wife of the Duke of Bragança.At the end of the first volume appear several works by Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo (1618?-1680), one of the leading economists in seventeenth-century Portugal, best known for his efforts to end the economic crisis in Portugal during the second half of the seventeenth century. Innocêncio notes that Ribeiro de Macedo was esteemed by his contemporaries for his elegant prose and verse composed in the Spanish style; more recently, Bell has praised the author's prose but is less complimentary about the verse. Included here are his Sonho politico, breve discurso das partes de hum juis perfeyto, the Discurso politico moral, and the Obras metricas. This is the second edition of these works, all having first appeared in the Discursos politicos e obras metricas, Lisbon 1721.*** Innocêncio IV, 22-3: calling for viii, 144, 83, vi, 22; viii, 165 (i.e., 265), 44 pp.; cf.

        The dunciad, variorum. With the prolegomena of Scriblerus [Large Paper?]

      London: Printed for A. Dod, 1729. First Edition thus. 4to: 16,[2],6,9-29,[3],118,cxix-cxxiv,[2]pp, with engraved title page showing an ass chewing thistles and laden with books, an owl perched on top (No. 1 of four versions of the image) and head-pieces and woodcut tail-pieces. (Pagination of the "Prolegomena" omits pages 7 and 8, as always, but text is continuous.) Not to be confused with the reissue of the 1729 edition printed by John Wright for A. Dod, with an added leaf at end, headed "Addenda. M. Scriblerus lectori" (ESTC Citation No. T5544; as Foxon cautions: since the reissue differs "only in lacking the leaf of addenda, copies may be easily sophisticated." In our copy, X3 and X4 are conjugate, as are the following two blank leaves.). Contemporary mottled English calf, spine (very skillfully relaid) in six compartments very richly gilt between raised bands; covers, with gilt French fillet, stamped in blind with decorative roll; reddish-brown morocco letter-piece gilt, board edges gilt, leaf edges speckled red. A gorgeous wide-margined copy (Large Paper, according to Lowndes), in a Fine period binding, pages and engravings pristine (excepting end papers and blanks, which are foxed). ESTC T5545. Griffith (Pope) 211 (calling our copy variant a) and p. 162. Foxon P771. Vander Meulen (Engelhard Lecture), p. 5. Wise (Pope Library). Lowndes IV, 1917 ("The author's first avowed edition."). Pope's literary landmark, published in four major versions and in five dozen editions, impressions, and issues between 1728 and 1751, making it something of a bibliographic quagmire. The poem celebrates a goddess, Dulness, and the progress of her agents as they bring decay, imbecility, and tastelessness to the Kingdom of Great Britain. Pope first published The Dunciad in 1728, in three books. The poem was not signed, and he used only initials in the text to refer to the various Dunces in the kingdom of Dulness. However, "keys" immediately came out to identify the persons mentioned in the text, and an Irish pirate edition was printed that filled in the names (sometimes inaccurately). "In the spring of 1729, the 'War of the Dunces' entered a new phase with the publication of the enlarged Dunciad [our copy]. Though the text of the poem was not greatly changed relatively, the size of the book was quadrupled by the edition of a prolegomena, a mass of foot-notes and appendices in which Pope made his attack upon his antagonists more direct and more pungent." (Griffith) In this, the Dunciad Variorum of 1729, Pope called the version of 1728 "surreptitious," claiming that there had been five different forms of that "imperfect" version and baffling bibliographers to this day. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

      (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.

Title page of first volume in red and black lettering. Decorative head-, tailpieces, and initials. Each book is housed in a modern orange cloth covered clamshell box, with gold lettering to spine.A much praised and revered edition of Plutarch's Parallel Lives, a series of biographies of illustrious Greek and Roman men, arranged in tandem to illuminate their common moral virtues or failings, probably written at the beginning of the second century AD. Brunet called it "Une belle edition qui représente le texte de l'édition de Paris (1624);" and Lowndes called it "An excellent edition." Its translator and editor Augustine Bryan (d. 1726) "was a classical scholar and Church of England clergyman educated at St Paul's School and Trinity College. The present work went to print just before his death, and only ten years after his graduation. It was completed by Moses du Soul." (For more information, see Encyclopedia Britannica). Both the Latin and Greek texts were printed primarily from the Paris edition of 1624, though with a few corrections and comments. This edition was the first to give the variants of five Oxford MSS, and, what is of much greater importance, an exact collation of the "Sangermanensis." (For more information, see: Graesse V, 355. Lowndes IV, 1890. Brunet IV, 736. ESTC T106982. ODNB, article/3787).This five volume set is illustrated with engraved medallion portrait headpieces (from gems) by Gerard van der Gucht depicting the famous men.Bindings heavily rubbed and darkened with most covers detached but present. The first volume is rebacked with modern olive cloth. The second and fourth volumes are crudely rebacked with binder's tape. The remaining original spines are heavily rubbed and chipped. Ex-library copy with stamp on frontispiece and title pages. Library pocket on inside of each back cover. Pages evenly age-toned and slightly foxed in first volume. Sporadic and minor clear water staining throughout Vol. 4, and at upper margin of pp. 425 to 468 in last volume. Text in Greek and Latin.

        The dunciad, variorum. With the prolegomena of Scriblerus [Large Paper?]

      London: Printed for A. Dod, 1729. First Edition. Full Calf. Fine. First Edition thus. 4to: 16,[2],6,9-29,[3],118,cxix-cxxiv,[2]pp, with engraved title page showing an ass chewing thistles and laden with books, an owl perched on top (No. 1 of four versions of the image) and head-pieces and woodcut tail-pieces. (Pagination of the "Prolegomena" omits pages 7 and 8, as always, but text is continuous.) Not to be confused with the reissue of the 1729 edition printed by John Wright for A. Dod, with an added leaf at end, headed "Addenda. M. Scriblerus lectori" (ESTC Citation No. T5544; as Foxon cautions: since the reissue differs "only in lacking the leaf of addenda, copies may be easily sophisticated." In our copy, X3 and X4 are conjugate, as are the following two blank leaves.). Contemporary mottled English calf, spine (very skillfully relaid) in six compartments very richly gilt between raised bands; covers, with gilt French fillet, stamped in blind with decorative roll; reddish-brown morocco letter-piece gilt, board edges gilt, leaf edges speckled red. A gorgeous wide-margined copy (Large Paper, according to Lowndes), in a Fine period binding, pages and engravings pristine (excepting end papers and blanks, which are foxed). ESTC T5545. Griffith (Pope) 211 (calling our copy variant a) and p. 162. Foxon P771. Vander Meulen (Engelhard Lecture), p. 5. Wise (Pope Library). Lowndes IV, 1917 ("The author's first avowed edition."). Pope's literary landmark, published in four major versions and in five dozen editions, impressions, and issues between 1728 and 1751, making it something of a bibliographic quagmire. The poem celebrates a goddess, Dulness, and the progress of her agents as they bring decay, imbecility, and tastelessness to the Kingdom of Great Britain. Pope first published The Dunciad in 1728, in three books. The poem was not signed, and he used only initials in the text to refer to the various Dunces in the kingdom of Dulness. However, "keys" immediately came out to identify the persons mentioned in the text, and an Irish pirate edition was printed that filled in the names (sometimes inaccurately). "In the spring of 1729, the 'War of the Dunces' entered a new phase with the publication of the enlarged Dunciad [our copy]. Though the text of the poem was not greatly changed relatively, the size of the book was quadrupled by the edition of a prolegomena, a mass of foot-notes and appendices in which Pope made his attack upon his antagonists more direct and more pungent." (Griffith) In this, the Dunciad Variorum of 1729, Pope called the version of 1728 "surreptitious," claiming that there had been five different forms of that "imperfect" version and baffling bibliographers to this day.

        Patent of nobility donated by Emperor Karl VI (1685-1740) to Johann Wilhelm Rzikowsky von Dobritz (Dobrzitz).

      Holy Roman Empire, Vienna, d.d. 29 July 1729. Folio, full purple velvet, bound with yellow and gold wire. 340 x 275 mm. (20) pages on vellum, slightly grimed in the margins. Manuscript, calligraphic text. One hand painted coat-of-arms in colour with the siege of a castle in the background. With the signature of Emperor Karl VI. No wax seal. This patent of nobility was issued in 1729 but states that the Rzikowsky family already recieved its title of Freiherr from Leopold I, the father and predecessor of Karl VI, in 1675. The siege in the background of the coat-of-arms points to the military career of Rzikowsky and his family. At the time of writing of the patent Rzikowsky was active as Rittmeister in the Baron Seherischen Cuirassier Regiment and proved his chivalry in action. Rzikowsky eventually became Generalfeldwachtmeister on 1 July 1752. He later served as a general in the Imperial army. The Rzikowsky family is linked to the Markgraftum Mähren (mark county Moravia, currently Czech Republic) and he or his family is mentioned in a book about the mark county printed in 1794. H137

Reçu docteur en médecine le 23 avril 1705, il fut appelé, dès 1708, à la chaire de physique à l'université ; à cette occasion, il fit son oratio de chymiae cum physica conjunctione. Promu au doctorat en philosophie, Boecler devint professeur public ordinaire d'histoire naturelle, en 1711, et, après la mort de J.Z. Henninger, professeur de chimie, de botanique et de materia medica (1719). Boecler appartenait aux deux Facultés. La réputation de ce professeur était si grande que Stanislas Poniatowsky le choisit pour médecin de sa maison.

        Histoire Naturelle, Civile et Ecclesiastique de L'Empire du Japon:

      The Hague: Chez P. Gosse, & J. Neaulme,, 1729. Composeé en Allemand … 2 volumes folio (353 × 230 mm). Late 19th-century calf-backed boards, red and green morocco contrast labels, edges sprinkled red, marbled endpapers. With engraved allegorical title to volume I, title pages printed in red and black, 45 engraved plates, maps and plans, all but 2 folding or double-page, one of them a large folding general map of Japan, engraved arms to the dedication leaf, cul-de-lampes. From the Château Dampierre library of the ducs de Luynes, bookplate to verso of the front free endpaper, and contemporary inked collation verso of the first publisher's blank in volume I. Spines a little sunned, a few minor repairs, some browning throughout as usual, particularly at the inner margin of volume I, one plate rather heavily browned, but overall a very good copy. First edition in French published two years after the first edition which was published in English. In his lifetime Engelbert Kaempfer (1651-1716) published nothing of his travels in the Far East; it was not until his natural history collection and literary remains were purchased by Sir Hans Sloane in 1723–5 that this account, written shortly before his death, was translated into English by Johann Gaspar Scheuzer and prepared for publication. Thereafter this encyclopaedic description of Japanese flora and fauna, religion and customs, government and industries remained "the chief source of Western knowledge of Japan" (Landwehr) for over a century, being translated into all major languages and reprinted on numerous occasions. Born in Westphalia, Kaempfer graduated in 1676 with a doctorate in languages, history and medicine from Cracow, spending the following four years at Königsberg studying medicine and natural science. In 1681 he moved to Upsala and two years later was chosen to accompany Ludwig Fabritius's embassy from Charles XII to Russia and Persia. At Esfahan Kaempfer decided not to return with the rest of the party, but instead obtained employment with the Dutch East India Company and headed south for Bandar Abbas, where for two years he was surgeon at the Dutch factory. In 1688 he set sail for the east passing through Muscat, the Malabar and Coromandel coasts, Cochin, and Quilon, arriving in Batavia in October 1689, "After spending the winter studying the natural history of Java he took a vessel to Japan as physician to the Dutch trading factory there. En route the vessel called at the Dutch factory in Siam, where Kaempfer visited Ayuthaya and Bangkok. On 24.9.90 he arrived at the Dutch factory of Deshima in Nagasaki, Japan, the only Japanese port at that time open to foreign trade" (Howgego). In 1691 he set out with the head of the factory on his first journey to the imperial court at Edo, receiving an audience with Shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi. He made a second similar trip in 1692 before leaving Japan and returning to Batavia, eventually sailing for Europe some time in 1693. "His adroitness, insinuating manners and medical skill overcame the habitual jealousy and reticence of the natives, and enabled him to elicit much valuable information" (Ency. Brit.) By 1695 he had established himself as a physician in his home town of Lemgo where he remained until his death in 1716.
