GOTTI (Vincenzo Ludovico)
(1729) Vincent-Louis Gotti, cardinal et théologien né à Bologne en 1664 et décédé à Rome en 1742, entra à l'âge de seize ans dans l'Ordre Dominicain. Il fut notamment professeur de théologie à Bologne. En 1708, il fut élu prieur du couvent dominicain de Bologne, réélu en 1714 et, deux ans plus tard, il devint supérieur de toute la province. En 1715 Clément XI le nomma inquisiteur général de la Foi dans la ville de Milan. De retour à Bologne, il reçut la chaire de théologie polémique à l'université et, en 1720, il fut élu pour la troisième fois prieur du couvent de Bologne. Ses commentaires de l'œuvre de Thomas d'Aquin constituent son travail le plus important. "Il a rempli huit volumes et a été divisé en seize parties : la première partie comprend les prolegomena et loci theologici, et tout le reste suit l'ordre de la "Somme" de saint Thomas, à l'exception de la dernière partie, qui traite de l'état de l'âme après la mort, la fin du monde, le jugement général, etc. "[Encyclopédie catholique"]. Texte sur deux colonnes, pages de titres imprimées en rouge et noir ou en noir.

(SWIFT, Jonathan) [Arbuckle, James, attributed]
[Dublin]: [s.n.], 1729-30. 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). ESTC T497; Foxon P36; Rogers 810; Rothschild 2121; Teerink 691; Williams II, p. 491. Disbound.

Fleury, André-Hercule de (1653-1743)
[Paris? 9 mai 1729. 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. 1 vols. Folio. The Jansenists and the Church. 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.

DANET (Guillaume).
Paris, G. Danet, 1729. 495 x 730 mm. Rare mappemonde à deux hémisphères, publiée à Paris en 1729. Elle est ornée d'un cartouche de titre décoré de deux figures allégoriques entourant les armoiries royales. Les bordures sont décorées de sphères illustrant les quatre théories de l'Univers : pour Copernic, le Soleil était au centre de l'Univers, tandis que Ptolémée, Descartes et Tycho Brahé affirmaient, au contraire, que la Terre était bien le centre de l'Univers. La carte est également décorée de sphères illustrant les planètes, dont une carte de la Lune par Cassini, d'une sphère armillaire et de deux cornes d'abondance. Les routes de grands voyageurs comme Magellan en 1520 ou Abel Tasman en 1642 sont indiquées en pointillés. Y figurent également les découvertes de Halley en 1700, de Drake, ainsi qu'une note sur Amerigo Vespucci au sud-est de la Terre de Feu. Marchand papetier, éditeur et marchand de cartes de géographie, Guillaume Danet épousa en 1695 la fille de Nicolas de Fer. À la mort de ce dernier, il hérita de la moitié de son fonds de cartes et plans qu'il se contenta de rééditer. Cette carte est par conséquent rare, car le nom de de Fer n'y figure pas en tant qu'auteur. Contours aquarellés à l'époque. Petites déchirures restaurées.

VERY RARE, ORIGINAL 1729 EDITION OF "AN ACT FOR ESTABLISHING AN AGREEMENT WITH SEVEN OF THE LORDS PROPRIETORS OF CAROLINA, FOR THE SURRENDER OF THEIR TITLE AND INTEREST IN THAT PROVINCE TO HIS MAJESTY." This important 18th century treatise was printed by Henry Hills, London. Seminal monograph in the annals of the Carolinas was published within the British Acts passed during the second session of the Parliament of 1727-1728 (first year of the reign of George II). British acts of this period, although issued separately, were paginated continuously as is the present work. This landmark act resulted in the separation of the northern and southern parts of the original Province of Carolina, and thus, the founding of North and South Carolina. It is among the most significant laws relating to colonial America passed during this parliamentary session, and a significant piece of early American history. Volume is scarce. Sabin 87355. The division between the northern and southern Carolina governments was cemented in 1712, however both colonies remained in the hands of the same group of proprietors. A rebellion against the proprietors broke out in 1719 which led to the appointment of a royal governor for South Carolina in 1720. After nearly a decade in which the British government sought to locate and buy out the proprietors, both North and South Carolina became royal colonies in 1729. "The Government of Carolina, from the surrender in 1729, became regal; and the Province was divided into North and South Carolina, by an order of the British Council, which fixed the boundaries between t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sophocles; Adams, George (translator)
C. Davis in Pater-noster-row; and Stephen Austen, in St. Paul's Church-yard, London. First edition in English of the collected plays of Sophocles, including the first English appearance in any form of Oedipus at Colonus, Women of Trachis, and Antigone: "I was not born to hate with others, but love." Sophocles produced over one hundred tragedies over his long career, winning first prize in the most important Athenian dramatic festival, the City Dionysia, an unmatched eighteen times. The first of his plays to appear in English was Electra in 1649, followed by Ajax in 1714, Oedipus Tyrannus in 1715, and Philoctetes in 1725. In this 1729 edition, George Adams offers a lengthy "defence of Tragick Poetry," followed by new English prose translations of all seven of Sophocles's extant plays. Adams published these volumes fifty years before the collected works of Sophocles's great rivals, Aeschlylus and Euripides, would appear in English. As a result, the plots and characters of Sophocles exerted a significantly greater influence on the eighteenth-century London stage than those of his Athenian contemporaries (Hall and Macintosh, Greek Tragedy and the British Theatre 1660-1914). This edition was printed by William Bowyer, whose records indicate a run of only 1000 copies. ESTC T140983. A handsome copy of an important early translation.

Holy Bible
Parisiis : Sumptibus Societatis. 1729-45. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An extremely rare and highly desirable 'Biblia Sacra' published in Paris in 1729. This beautiful set features the Vulgate and a translation by Sante Pagnino edited by Henri Estienne, Nicholas Henri and Michaud. The translation comes directly from Estienne's 1545 text from the original Hebrew (published in 1557). And while these translation are important, this edition features the commentary and supplemental notes of Francois Vatable and Dom Calmet. Francois Vatable was a 16th-century Hebrew language scholar who is individually responsible for the restoration of Hebrew language study in France. The second volume of this two-volume set is dated 1745, with the delay in printing due to collation needs, described in a notice to the reader in said volume. Darlow and Moule says of this edition: "A fresh edition of a Bible first published in 1721. The preface to vol. 1 states that the Vulgate text follows.

Parisiis : Sumptibus Societatis. 1729-45. An extremely rare and highly desirable 'Biblia Sacra' published in Paris in 1729. This beautiful set features the Vulgate and a translation by Sante Pagnino edited by Henri Estienne, Nicholas Henri and Michaud. The translation comes directly from Estienne's 1545 text from the original Hebrew (published in 1557). And while these translation are important, this edition features the commentary and supplemental notes of Francois Vatable and Dom Calmet. Francois Vatable was a 16th-century Hebrew language scholar who is individually responsible for the restoration of Hebrew language study in France. The second volume of this two-volume set is dated 1745, with the delay in printing due to collation needs, described in a notice to the reader in said volume. Darlow and Moule says of this edition: "A fresh edition of a Bible first published in 1721. The preface to vol. 1 states that the Vulgate text follows. Vitre's Paris edition, while Pagninus' version is reprinted partly from Estienne's edition of 1557, and partly from Servetus edition of 1542, with some corrections.

ANONYMOUS.
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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Mendelssohn, Moses
Modern, old style binding, half calf leather. Else a good copy with an ownership mark on the titlepage (‘Joseph Basler [or Basbe?]’). With an engraved frontispiece showing three scenes from jewish life and a small engraving on the titlepage by I.M. Eben. 8°: A-Z 8, pag.: 368. The filosopher Moses Mendelssohn (1729-1786) was the spiritual leader of the German Jewry during the Enlightenment. He wrote many philosophical treatises and is considered the father of the Jewish Enlightenment. Thus he became the symbol of progressive Judaism to the Christian world. At the height of his career, in 1769, Mendelssohn was publicly challenged by a Christian apologist, a Zurich pastor named John Lavater, to defend the superiority of Judaism over Christianity. The letters forming his reply - published in German in 1770 and translated for the present rare French edition - neither attacked Christianity nor defended Judaism; they maintained instead that such polemics were inconsistent with Judaism and unbecoming of Jews. The controversy, which disturbed Mendelssohn greatly, forced him to recognize that his Judaism created a barrier between himself and his enlightened colleagues. Mendelssohn wanted to take the Jews out of a ghetto lifestyle and into secular society. He tried to improve the relationship between Jews and Christians as he argued for tolerance and humanity.

BOWEN, Emanuel
London,: Printed for Carington Bowles, in St. Paul's Church Yard, and Robert Sayer No. 53 Fleet Street. DescriptionEngraved map on six sheets, original hand colour, trimmed to image, all sheets backed on japan paper, later half calf over red buckram boards. NotesWhilst almost every English county was the subject of a large-scale survey in the eighteenth century, this did not apply to Wales, many counties relying on this map of South Wales and Evans survey of North Wales to provide the detail missing from the maps to be found in the county atlases of the period. Emanuel Bowen was a prolific engraver and map publisher during the first half of the eighteenth century and was appointed engraver of maps to George II of England and Louis XV of France. He produced several county atlases, in some of which he was assisted by his son Thomas. Despite this commercial success ill-health and impecuniosity dogged both father and son, the later dying in Clerkenwell Workhouse. Emanuel Bowens map of the six counties of South Wales detailed, informative and decorative - a splendid example of the mapmakers art. There are two large cartouches, one giving the title, the other dedicating the map to the Prince of Wales, whilst there are topographical views of Carmarthen, Brecon, Haverfordwest, Tenby and Swansea. A note on the Explanation refers to the Table of Principal roads on the bottom of the map which lists over 150 different routes in computed and measured miles. Although this is usually indicated on the map itself, the author tells us that in this instance he considers it provides greater cl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pope, Alexander].
London: A Dod, 1729. 4to, engraved title page with vignette of book-laden ass, 16, (2), 6, 9-29, (3), 118, cxix-cxxiv pp. Engraved head-pieces, woodcut tail-pieces. Full polished calf by Bedford, triple gilt fillet borders, backstrip gilt with floral designs and green labels, inner dentelles gilt, top edge gilt, bottom edge untrimmed. Front joint skillfully repaired, a clean and attractive copy with the signature and bookplate of Maurice Baring, and the monogram bookplate of Charles C. Kalbfleisch. First variorum edition, first complete edition of the first three books of The Dunciad. Pope didn't openly avow his authorship until 1735 but this is the first edition to include several unambiguous hints. According to Griffith, the real publisher was Lawton Gilliver who used the fictitious imprint to suggest the publisher was A. Dodd who had published all the London editions of 1728. This edition of the Dunciad, newly expanded with pseudo-scholarly paraphernalia and extensive ironic footnotes, was a counter-counter-attack in the ongoing war between Pope and his outraged satiric targets. This copy once belonged to Maurice Baring OBE (1874-1945), the English writer, Catholic convert, and regular member of the upper class literary circles including Virgina Woolf, Hilaire Belloc, and G.K. Chesterton. From him it passed to the American collector Charles C. Kalbfleisch (d.1943), a member of the Grolier Club for 50 years; his books, including this one, were auctioned by Parke-Bernet in January 1944 in the sale "The Arts of the Book . . . The Splendid Library Formed by the Late Charles … [Click Below for Full Description]

VERY RARE, ORIGINAL 1729 EDITION OF "AN ACT FOR ESTABLISHING AN AGREEMENT WITH SEVEN OF THE LORDS PROPRIETORS OF CAROLINA, FOR THE SURRENDER OF THEIR TITLE AND INTEREST IN THAT PROVINCE TO HIS MAJESTY." This important 18th century treatise was printed by Henry Hills, London. Seminal monograph in the annals of the Carolinas was published within the British Acts passed during the second session of the Parliament of 1727-1728 (first year of the reign of George II). British acts of this period, although issued separately, were paginated continuously as is the present work. This landmark act resulted in the separation of the northern and southern parts of the original Province of Carolina, and thus, the founding of North and South Carolina. It is among the most significant laws relating to colonial America passed during this parliamentary session, and a significant piece of early American history. Volume is scarce. Sabin 87355. The division between the northern and southern Carolina governments was cemented in 1712, however both colonies remained in the hands of the same group of proprietors. A rebellion against the proprietors broke out in 1719 which led to the appointment of a royal governor for South Carolina in 1720. After nearly a decade in which the British government sought to locate and buy out the proprietors, both North and South Carolina became royal colonies in 1729. "The Government of Carolina, from the surrender in 1729, became regal; and the Province was divided into North and South Carolina, by an order of the British Council, which fixed the boundaries between t … [Click Below for Full Description]

This work was first printed in 1572 and may be the first privately printed book in England." (Universit … [Click Below for Full Description]
