        New Reflexions on the Fair Sex. Written originally in French, by the celebrated Marchioness de Lambert, (and by her suppress'd)...Translated into English by J. Lockman

      London: Printed and sold by N. Prevost .... 1729. First. First edition in English. xxviii, 72pp. Bound in old, but later unprinted wrappers. A little soiling and very light foxing, a handsome, near fine copy. An important book by a woman about women, the Marchioness de Lambert bridges the gap between the 17th and 18th Centuries, and the salon she presided over was at the center of Parisian literary and intellectual life. In this book she reproaches men with "spoiling the dispositions nature has given to women, neglecting their education, filling their minds with nothing solid, and destining them solely to please, and to please only by their graces or their vices." It was doubtless these unpopular opinions, and her aversion to the publicity of authorship, that led her to buy the entire edition of her Reflexions sur les Femmes, which was published without her consent. The book has been almost continuously in print since originally published, and has gained new life in women's studies programs. OCLC locates but three copies worldwide -- two at the University of California, and one at Princeton. .

Griffith, 224-7)During the later 1720s Walpole, and Pope's whig friends, thought the poet had been netted and brought under control, a relatively small poem, anonymously published, probably on 18 May 1728, brought all this in question. This was the first of Pope's Dunciads; an expanded Dunciad came out in 1729, a New Dunciad in 1742, and a Dunciad in four books in 1743. SEe ODNB for a full Bio.

A PESAR DE LO DICHO, QUE ES PRECEPTIVO, EL LIBRO EN GENERAL SE ENCUENTRA EN BUEN ESTADO DE CONSERVACION, con el papel blanco y terso, sin manchas y completo. CONTIENE: A los Medicos buenos (introducción); Aprobación de Don Gregorio Mayans i Síscar; Suma de la licencia; Nota del traductor; Discurso I: Mas vale estar sin Medico, que no tenerle bueno; Discurso II: La Medicina sirve, pero cada uno puede ser medico de sí mismo; Discurso III: De la dificultad de la Medicina, y del engaño de las mas famosas Sectas de Medicos, y particularmente de los Dogmaticos, y secuaces de los antiguos; Discurso IV: En el qual se contienen algunas advertencias para vivir, y conservar la salud mucho tiempo; Discurso V: Si es mejor valerse de Medicos Modernos, ó Galenicos. El autor, físico y médico italiano, ejerció en Verona (Veneto), donde fundó la Accademia degli Aletofili; como precursor de la ilustración, en su tiempo alcanzó gran popularidad por su defensa de una medicina científica en contraposición a la hipocrático-galénica, causando una notable controversia al afirmar que muchas veces los enfermos morían más por la actuación de supuestos médicos que por las propias enfermedades. Esta obra refleja dichas teorías con un tono sarcástico y crítico muy duro hacia los curanderos o falsos médicos, a los cuales se acusa de recetar "letras de ejecución" a sus desaprensivos pacientes. El intenso debate dio lugar a contestaciones en forma de otros libros y subsiguientes reimpresiones de éste, llegando a sumar 24 ediciones distintas; la que ofrecemos es una de las cuatro que aparecieron por primera vez en España durante el año 1729, en Valencia, Sevilla, Valladolid y Madrid. En definitiva, el recurrente tema de los matasanos sacado a luz por primera vez en aquellos años. Palau 100968. Libro en español [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      S.n. [Guérin], S.l. [Paris] 1729 - 547 pp. + 581 pp., 2 volumes, in-12, reliure pleine basane d'époque, dos 5 nerfs, caissons ornés. Edition Originale peu commune. Importants pour la Fronde, ces mémoires ne se recommandent pas par leur impartialité. Procureur Général en 1641, Lenet fut pendant la Fronde, chargé par Condé de plusieurs missions et principalement de négocier un traité avec l'Espagne. Il dut s'enfuir de France lors de la pacification de 1653 et ne put revenir qu'en 1661. "Lenet, dit Madame de Sévigné, avait de l'esprit comme douze". Mémoires d'un grand intérêt car l'auteur n'y relate que des faits dont il a été le témoin. Il fut particulièrement actif lors de la guerre de Guyenne et des luttes autour de Bordeaux comme agent du Prince de Condé et de Madame de Longueville. Une deuxième partie de ces mémoires, traitant de la période précédant la Fronde (1627-1643) fut publiée en.1826 dans la Collection des mémoires relatifs à l'histoire de France publiée par Petitot (tomes LIII et LIV).

Johann Christian Klemm (1688 in Stuttgart , ?1754 Tübingen), tüchtiger Theologe, wurde 1717 Professor der Philosophie, der griechischen und orientalischen Sprache in Tübingen; sein Schwager, der bekannte Kanzler Chr. Matth. Pfaff suchte ihn in die theologische Facultät zu bringen, 1725 wurde er trotz des Widerstrebens derselben, welche an seinen Scriptis irenicis Anstoß nahm, wenigstens mit der außerordentlichen Professur bedacht, Mai 1730 erhielt er die ordentliche Professur, 1736 wurde ihm zugleich die Prälatur Hirsau übertragen, welche Stelle er bis zu seinem Tode behielt. Besonders bekannt und eigentlich allein bedeutend wurde er durch seine Bemühungen, eine Vereinigung der beiden protestantischen Confessionen und Kirchen herbeizuführen; noch als Professor der Philosophie schrieb er: ?Die nöthige Einigkeit der protestantischen Kirchen?, Tübingen 1719, worin er nachzuweisen suchte, daß in den Fundamentalartikeln des Glaubens beide Confessionen übereinstimmen, daß der Punkt in der Lehre von der Person Christi, welcher die Differenzen verursachte, kein Fundamentalartikel sei, sowenig wie die Lehre von dem h. Abendmahle, [154] 1722 vertheidigte er seine Lehre in: ?Vertheidigte Glaubenseinigkeit?, auch sein ?Irenisches Zeugniß? 1724 diente demselben Zwecke. Der Versuch scheiterte allerdings an Kursachsen. K. selbst gab seine Bemühungen mit dem Bemerken auf, daß er der lutherischen Lehre durchaus nichts habe vergeben wollen.Christoph Matthäus Pfaff (1686 Stuttgart; ?1760 Gießen) evangelischer Theologe, wurdet 1717 Professor für Theologie in Tübingen und war seit 1720 außerdem Propst und Kanzler der Universität. Nach einem Zwischenfall 1756 wurde er nach Gießen versetzt und war dort bis zu seinem Tode Professor der Theologie, Kanzler der Universität und General-Superintendent.Pfaff gilt neben Johann Franz Buddeus und Siegmund Jakob Baumgarten als der bedeutendste Bahnbrecher der theologischen Aufklärung innerhalb des deutschen Protestantismus. Er nahm pietistische Elemente auf, interpretierte sie aber im Sinne der Aufklärung. 15000 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Secrets of the Invisible World Disclos'd. Or, an Universal History of Apparitions Sacred and Prophane, Under all Denominations; Whether, Angelical, Diabolical, or Human Souls departed. [previously: 'History and Reality of Apparitions']

      J. Clarke A. Millar and J. Green, London 1729 - Hardcover, 8vo, [xii +] 396 pp, Contemporary calf boards, with later (nineteenth century?) leather spine raised bands and blind tooling and leather spine labels with gilt titling between bands. Frontis, and five full-page engraved plates. The third issue of the first edition of the last of Defoe's treatises on the supernatural. It was also the last issue published during the author's lifetime. The book was first published anonymously in March 1727 under the title "An Essay on the History and Reality of Apparitions " but perhaps because of the anonymity sales were slow. In November 1728 it was reissued using the same sheets as the first edition, but with a new title-page which identified the author as "Andrew Moreton" (a pseudonym which Defoe had used several times previously) a different title and a different publisher ("J. Peele"). In February of the following year it was reissued once more, using the same first edition sheets, but again with a different title page, the details of which was essentially the same as those of the second issue, except that it had yet another publisher's imprint (J. Clarke, A. Millar and J. Green). This, the third issue of the First Edition, was also the final issue of that edition. The Second Edition, which was a complete new printing, did not appear until 1735, four years after the author's death. The book itself is essentially a lengthy argument attesting to the existence of beings of "the invisible world." The waning of belief in witchcraft during the seventeenth century had been accompanied by a broader rejection of the supernatural, a viewpoint against which Defoe argued vehemently, suggesting that disbelief in apparitions was tantamount to religious unbelief. In this work he explores the nature of ghosts, angels, and other supernatural beings, arguing that while they may not be as we imagine them (he did not, for example, believe ghosts to be the spirits of departed people) they existed nonetheless, as had been well attested throughout history. The full subtitle gives a fair summation of its contents: Or, an Universal History of Apparitions Sacred and Prophane, Under all Denominations; Whether, Angelical, Diabolical, or Human Souls departed. Shewing I. THEIR various Returns to this World; with sure Rules to know, by their Manner of Appearing, if they are Good or Evil ones. II. The Differences of the Apparitions of Antient and Modern Times; and an Enquiry into the Scriptural Doctrine of Spirits. III. The many Species of Apparitions, their real Existence, and Operations by Divine Appointment. IV. The Nature of seeing Ghosts before, and after, Death; and how we should behave towards them. V. The Effects of Fancy, Vapours, Dreams, Hyppo, and of real or Imaginary Appearances. VI. A Collection of the most Authentic Relations of Apparitions, particularly that surprizing One attested by the learned Dr. Scott. The spine has been sympathetically rebacked, probably during the nineteenth century, preserving the original boards, which are rubbed and rounded at the corners. Old pencil notes to rear blank and pastedowns, clipping from a bookseller's catalogue advertising a different edition on the front pastedown. Title page a little grubbing, a few spots of browning and a few faint discolored patches to the margins here and there, but the over all the pages are clean and supple, and generally the books is an attractive VG+ copy.

        Letter Signed ("Le Card. de Fleury) to Cardinal Corradini on matters relating to the Jansenists

      [Paris?, 9 mai 1729 - A letter of great interest, relating to Jansenism and the reaction of the Church authorities to the challenge it posed. Fleury (1653-1743) was an extremely powerful advisor and minister to Louis XV, a member of l'Académie Française. He wrote this immediately following the death of Cardinal de Noailles, the Archbishop of Paris who was closely associated with policy of the Papal Bull known as Unigenitus (1713), which had virtually banished Jansenists from the Church. In the years following the Bull, known as the period of 'appeal' because the Jansenists called for a new Church Council to resolve the issues, the clergy was divided. In his letter announcing the death of the Cardinal de Noailles, Fleury expresses his hopes for a period when Jansenism will diminish, and cites various cases of retraction among the dissidents. "Je commence ma réponse par la nouvelle que Votre Eminence recevra sans doute d'ailleurs, qui est la mort de M. le Cardinal de Noailles. Il avait une connaissance si confuse et si embrouillée qu'il ne put même pas prononcer le symbole avant de recevoir le Saint Viatique, et n'a pas été en état de prononcer une seule parole de suite sur les sentiments dans lesquels il mouroit. Le chapitre a nommé six vicaires généraux dont plus de la moitié sont bons et les autres ne sont que douteux. Il y a lieu d'espérer que s'ils ne font pas grand bien, au moins ne feront-ils pas de mal . Il ne fault pas être étonné que les Jansénistes cherchent ê profiter de tout et l'interprêter ê leur avantage. S'il falloit en croire leurs gazettes, presque tout le monde seroit en France de leur parti et Dieu merci rien n'est plus faux, car un grand nombre des novateurs ouvrent les yeux tous les jours, et je pourrois citer depuis un mois plusieurs exemples de rétractations sincères d'appel. Les chapitres de Laon, de Boulogne, de Tours, de Bayeux, etc., sont presque déja purgés des réfractaires . " Folio. 7 pp. Tipped into a bound volumes with several other documents, engravings of the period, including engraved portraits of Cardinal Noailles, Louis XVI, a portrait of Fleury himself, of Phillippe d'Orléans, regent of France, and a letter to Phillippe from a Carmelite order asking for charity.

First edition and a surprisingly scarce book on the market. "Numerical data on the laws and phenomena of magnetism. Law of distance, p. 20; action of flames, p. 70; whirling magnet, p. 116; consequent poles, p. 243; declination at Paris and London, p. 150; dip, p. 206. Contains Halley&#39;s chart of magnetic lines."-Wheeler Gift Cat. 268-(illustrated). This work is also notable for containing Musschenbroek&#39;s experiments on the strength of materials, capillarity, and cohesion. "Of particular relevance to this collection is &#39;Introduction ad Cohaerentiam Corporum Firmorum,&#39; accompanied by a number of plates illustrating fractured test specimens and testing apparatus. Also of relevance is the chapter &#39;Tentamen de corporum Duritiâ,&#39; which concerns the hardness of materials."-Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 232. Musschenbroek (1692-1761), professor of natural philosophy and mathematics at Utrecht and, later, professor of experimental physics at Leyden, was one of the most celebrated physicists and most important investigators of his time. The experiments described in his books have become classics in elementary instruction. "Underlying Musschenbroek&#39;s lectures demonstrated with experiments was the experimental philosophy...the principal source of inspiration was Newton, but Galileo, Torricelli, Huygens, Réaumur, and others were important to this school."-D.S.B., IX, p. 596. Very good copy, preserved in a box. Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. .

        Die Geduld. ("Patience").

      . Kupferstich in Punktiermanier, in mehreren Farben, von W.W. Ryland (1729 oder 1732-1783), auf Bütten. Darstellung im Hochoval. 37,7:29 cm. Published London 1777. Literatur: Nagler 19; Le Blanc 25; Boerner 1979, vgl. 185; vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Angelika Kauffmann. Ein Weib von ungeheurem Talent. Hrsg. von T.G. Natter. Bregenz 2007, Nr. 150 (Rotdruck). Illustration zu William Mason, Caractacus.. Angelika Kauffmann war eine der berühmtesten Malerinnen ihrer Zeit. Bereits als 11jährige galt sie als Wunderkind. Als Tochter des Porträt- und Freskenmalers J.J. Kauffmann (1702-1782), der ihr erster Lehrer war, wurde Kauffmanns zeichnerisches und musikalisches Talent schon im Kindesalter erkannt und gefördert. Die beiden ersten Italienaufenthalte in den Jahren 1754-1757 und 1758-1766 brachten entscheidende künstlerische Impulse sowie die Verbindung zu zahlreichen potenziellen Auftraggebern. 1766 ließ sie sich in England nieder, wo sie zahlreiche Porträtaufträge von Hof und Adel erhielt. Nach der Heirat mit dem Maler A. Zucchi (1726-1795) siedelte sie 1782 nach Rom über, wo sie ebenfalls bald zu einer der gefeiertsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit avancierte. Auch für die deutschen Romreisenden war ihr Atelier eine wichtiger Treffpunkt, insbesondere für den Weimarer Kreis um Goethe, Herder, die sie beide porträtierte, und Herzogin Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar. Neben ihrer Porträttätigkeit betrieb Angelika Kauffmann ebenso erfolgreich die Historienmalerei. So führte sie Aufträge u.a. für Kaiser Joseph II. und für das russische Herrscherhaus aus. Bereits 1762 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia Bologna und 1765 ordentliches Mitglied der Accademia di San Luca zu Rom. Zudem beteiligte sie sich 1768 an der Gründung der Royal Academy; gemeinsam mit Mary Moser (1744-1819), einer der berühmtesten Malerinnen Englands, gehörte sie zu deren einzigen weiblichen Mitgliedern.
