        Polly: An Opera Being the Second Part of the Beggar's Opera

      London: Printed for the Author, 1729, 1729. First edition. NCBEL II, 498. Binding a bit worn and stained; some light damp-stains in the text; a very good, large copy.. 4to, contemporary quarter calf, marbled paper boards, red leather label, gilt rules and lettering. 31 pages of engraved sheet music. The sequel to John Gay's popular Beggar's Opera (1728), but in Polly the characters have moved from the streets and highways of England to the West Indies, a setting Gay uses to ridicule fortune-hunting colonialists and the English colonial system. Polly was sufficiently offensive to the powers-that-be that Lord Chamberlain declared it libelous and banned it from being rehearsed, which Gay writes about in his four-page preface. This is followed by a clever three-page introduction on the nature of sequels written in the form of a dialogue between a poet and actor. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Henry Streatfield on the front paste-down, father of the legendary beauty Sophia Streatfield (1755-1835). The Streatfield library was later sold by W. H. Robinson Ltd. On the front free endpaper is the bookplate of American collector Charles Walker Andrews, who has noted in pencil above the bookplate that he purchased this from Robinson in 1935.

Not in BL London, BN Paris - "Although passed over by the majority if the historians of mechanics, this work marks a significant step toward the elaboration of a modern manual of practical mechanics, suitable for engineers of various disciplines. On the theoretical plane, La Hire's treatise was already out of date at the time of its appearance because it ignored Newton's laws of dynamics... on the other hand... he furnished useful descriptions and put forth the suggestion following Desargues, of adopting an epicycloidal for gear wheels" (DSB)..

        Emmenologia

      London: T. Cox, 1729. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Very interesting engraved printer's device on title. Full calf with simple blind stamped design and double gilt rules, somewhat worn; interior very clean and crisp, with only the occasional stain. Library stamp on paste-down, title, and final page. With the bookplate of Arnold Thackray, now loose. First edition in English of the first text on menstruation which appeared during the eighteenth century. This was the author's first book, originally published in Latin in 1703. Freind believed menstruation resulted from a plethora of the body, and because of erect posture the blood escaped via the uterus and vagina. Though his views on menstruation were not very popular, he provided some significant medical insight into the subject, such as proving by a calculation that the amount of blood passing through the umbilical cord would be sufficient for the needs of an embryo. Freind (1675-1728) was the first English medical historian. He was committed to the Tower, where he plotted in detail his History of Physick (1725-26), still considered a classic.

        Title in Ottoman Turkish:] Tarih-i seyyah der beyan-i zuhur-i Agvaniyan ve sebeb-i inhidam-i bina-i devlet-i Sahan-i Safeviyan (A Traveller's Chronicle Concerning the Emergence of the Afghans and the Cause of the Collapse of the Safavid Dynasty).

      Istanbul: Dar al-Tiba'ah al-Ma'murah, 1142 ah (1729 ce) - Octavo (215 x 152 mm). Contemporary dark red quarter morocco, marbled sides, catch-title (Tarih-i Agvan) to bottom edge in black ink. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Four Ottoman ownership stamps to ff. 1 and 21, later (1189 AH) ownership inscription to f. 1 by "Ahmad", possibly the owner of the seal directly below; additional inscriptions to f. 66 and verso of final blank. Minor loss to head and foot of spine with short split to head of front joint, earlier leaves with very faint damp-staining to bottom edge and slight finger-marking to bottom corners, very occasional light spotting to margins as usual, minute worm hole to gutter ff. [7]-10 and 72-97, old repair to f. 97v. with no loss of text, neat double incision to fore edge f. 66, ink-smudge to f. [5] r. and margin of f. 39 to no loss, f. 95 misbound between ff. 93 and 94. Overall a nice, crisp copy. A scarce title in a pleasing contemporary binding, this copy bearing several distinct Ottoman ownership seals yet with little real sign of wear. First edition in Turkish (printed with Arabic types) of this eyewitness account of the Afghan invasion of Persia in 1722 by Father Judasz Thaddeus Krusinksi (1675–1756), First published in French as Histoire de la dernière révolution de Perse in Paris, 1728. Krusinski, "the best known of the Polish Jesuits active in Iran" in the early 18th century, lived in Isfahan from 1707 to 1728 and again in the 1740s, serving as court translator, ambassador of French kings Louis XIV and XV, and intermediary between the Safavids and the Papacy (Encyclopaedia Iranica). The Afghan invasion saw the Safavid ruler Shah Sultan Husayn executed and the capital Isfahan sacked, precipitating the eventual downfall of the once-great empire in 1736 following a brief period of Safavid reconquest. Originally composed in Latin, Tarih-i seyyah was translated into Turkish by the Ottoman diplomat Ibrahim Müteferrika and became only the third text to be printed on his new printing press, the first press established under Muslim auspices. Following a long struggle against conservative religious sentiment, Müteferrika was finally granted permission for his project by Sultan Ahmet III in 1729. The first book printed was Kitab-i Lügat-i Vankulu, an Arabic–Persian–Turkish dictionary based on the Sihah of al-Jawhari, with the second being Katib Çelebi's Tühfet ül-kibar fi esfar il-bihar (Concerning Naval Expeditions), followed by the present title in the same year. The press was discontinued in 1742, with the consequence that any such "Turkish incunabula" are uncommon. Burrell 165 for the first edition and 448 for the first in English.

      Gedruckt bey der Kayserlichen Acadeie der Wissenschafften, St. Petersburg 1729 - Folio (29.5 × 19.5 cm). 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.

Ferrari (nach anderen Quellen des britischen Konsuls in Venedig und Bibliophilen Joseph Smith, 1682-1770) von E. Orlandini besorgt und von Pasinello verlegt wurde, ist mit der Originalausgabe nahezu identisch. Dem Fälscher sind jedoch einige Fehler unterlaufen, an denen sein Neudruck erkennbar ist (z. B. „Decemeron" in der 7. Zeile des 2. nn. Blattes). - „Every one of the numerous reprints of modern times must leave first place to the Ventisettana" (Gamba). - „Diese sehr ähnliche und schöne, aber incorrecte Nachbildung erschien auf Kosten des Consuls Smith zu Venedig bei Pasinello 1729, ist von St. Orlandini besorgt und bloß 300 Exemplare abgezogen.

        Polly: An Opera. Being the Second Part of the Beggar's Opera.

      London: Printed for the Author, 1729. 4to, contemporary quarter calf, marbled paper boards, red leather label, gilt rules and lettering. 31 pages of engraved sheet music. The sequel to John Gay's popular Beggar's Opera (1728), but in Polly the characters have moved from the streets and highways of England to the West Indies, a setting Gay uses to ridicule fortune-hunting colonialists and the English colonial system. Polly was sufficiently offensive to the powers-that-be that Lord Chamberlain declared it libelous and banned it from being rehearsed, which Gay writes about in his four-page preface. This is followed by a clever three-page introduction on the nature of sequels written in the form of a dialogue between a poet and actor. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Henry Streatfield on the front paste-down, father of the legendary beauty Sophia Streatfield (1755-1835). The Streatfield library was later sold by W. H. Robinson Ltd. On the front free endpaper is the bookplate of American collector Charles Walker Andrews, who has noted in pencil above the bookplate that he purchased this from Robinson in 1935. Binding a bit worn and stained; some light damp-stains in the text; a very good, large copy.

        Antiquities of Constantinople

      1729. First Edition . [GILLES, Pierre] BALL, John, translator. The Antiquities of Constantinople. With a Description of its Situation, the Conveniencies of its Port, its Publick Buildings, the Statuary, Sculpture, Architecture, and other Curiosites of that City. London: Printed for the Benefit of the Translator, 1729. Octavo, contemporary full paneled calf rebacked retaining old endpapers, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $3000.First edition in English of this beautifully illustrated account of Constantinople, enlarged with an ancient description of the wards of Constantinople, with a copper-engraved frontispiece and title page, 11 copper-engraved maps, plans, and views (three folding), and a copper-engraved vignette, in contemporary paneled calf covers.This work is a translation and enlargement of Pierre Gilles’ two-part work on Constantinople and environs, which was “among the earliest to describe Constantinople and the Thracian Bosporus, regarding accurate and reliable information” (Blackmer 684). Gilles was a prominent humanist, diplomat, and naturalist who accompanied d’Aramon’s embassy to the Porte in 1547. He was tasked with collecting Greek manuscripts and other antiquities for the king of France. This work, however, was the most lasting result of the journey and Gilles stayed far beyond his scheduled visit to complete it. In it, Gilles discusses the city’s history, landscape, architecture, monuments, and markets. He pays special attention to the city’s major building triumphs, frequently analyzing them from both an anthropological and archaeological standpoint, making this an early and important source on Constantinople. “[Gilles] has given us the first circumstantial account of the antiquities of Constantinople and may be considered the founder of Byzantine archeology” (Cox I:122). First published in Latin as De Bosporo Thracio in 1561 and De Topographia Constantinopoleos in 1562, reprinted by Elzevir in 1632. The plates appear here for the first time, supplied by Ball. “This book is beautifully adorned with cuts of the Buildings, the Statuary, and Sculpture of that city” (Cox I:122). Minor marginal tear to upper corner of A5, not affecting text. Occasional minor spotting or soiling to text margins; plates clean and fine, with crisp impressions. A few small flecks of paint to covers. An attractive copy in contemporary paneled calf.
