        THE TRAVELS OF MR. JOHN GULLIVER, SON TO CAPT. LEMUEL GULLIVER. Translated from the French, by J. Lockman ..

      London: Printed for Sam. Harding, at the Bible and Anchor, on the Pavement in St. Martin's-Lane, 1731.. Small octavo, two volumes: pp. [1-6] i-iv 1-10 i-vi 1-212; [1-2] i-iv 1-198; collates A5; a8, B-I8; K-O8; P2; A3, A-I8; K-M8, N3, rebound to style in modern quarter leather and marbled boards by the Dragonfly Bindery. First edition in English. The French original of Desfontaines' LE NOUVEAU GULLIVER OU VOYAGE DE JEAN GULLIVER, FILS DU CAPITAINE GULLIVER, Traduit d'un Manuscrit Anglois par Monsieur L. D. F., was published in 1730, three years after he had translated Swift's TRAVELS into French. His sequel was quite popular, going through three editions the year of its publication. Besides being translated into English, JEAN GULLIVER was translated into Dutch, German (three times in 1731) and Portuguese. In his preface, Desfontaines discarded the fiction of his work being a translation and defended himself against the charge of exploiting the success of Swift's work. He pointed to the originality of his adventures in their settings and morals. "… the reader will be convey'd into one country where the fair sex have the superiority; a second whose men soon grow old, and enjoy but a very short life; a third whose inhabitants, tho' superlatively deform'd and ugly, do nevertheless appear handsome in the eyes of their countrymen; lastly, another whose natives are indulg'd a long life, and the advantage of returning to the bloom of youth, when they have attain'd to half their years." Lockman, the work's English translator, defends French literature, which is "look'd upon as light, wordy, as 'tis term'd, and consequently uninform'd with the manly sense of our English writers." He blames this bad reputation on poor translations, "bad Versions" in which "their words only are translated." He points out that if a painter were to "copy a Raphael or a Titian; 'tis certain that the grace, the spirit and fire of the originals would be entirely lost in their performances." He goes on to defend imaginative literature in general. "I cannot but take notice of the contempt in which Romances in general are had, (and consequently the writers of them,) tho' the moral be ever so excellent, by multitudes of persons, merely because they are fictitious." Attacks on imaginative literature in Western culture go back to Plato, and defenses follow, the most famous in English being Sir Philip Sidney's Defense of Poesy in 1595.

        Eloge de la méchante femme, Dédié à Mademoiselle Honesta

      Paris: Antoine de Heuqueville, 1731. 12mo (156 x 87 mm). [8], 49, [1] pp., 1 blank leaf. Woodcut title vignette, headpieces and initials. Offsetting of a title-page from a different work on verso of final blank leaf (see below). A few leaves browned. Early 19th-century French speckled calf, gilt Greek key border roll, spine gold-tooled, edges red-sprinkled (joints and extremities scuffed). *** First Edition (or first edition thus) of a very funny semi-feminist encomium of mean b***hes. In his dedication to "Madame Honesta," a paradigm of nasty womanhood, the author explains that he had looked high and low throughout the streets and salons of Paris (thronging with "sheeplike souls," sweet mild-mannered ladies) for a truly méchante femme, before finally finding her. Her ill-temper, intolerance of bores and of contradiction, and readiness to scratch the eyes out of anyone who displeases her (and who doesn't displease her?) are the hallmarks of her Nastiness. The author expresses an occasionally ambivalent attitude toward women (typical of the average husband perhaps) that echoes in places earlier misogynist parodies, but his expressions of respect for strong women and disdain for male self-delusion seem unfeigned. He introduces his subject with an extended mockery of superstition, in which category he classes men's fears of méchantes femmes, which had been drilled into them at a young age, just like their fears of the number thirteen, etc. These irrational prejudices against outspoken strong-willed women are fortified by the world's male authors: brief citations and paraphrases of French and classical literature are provided, with full citations in the second half of the text, a less interesting florilegium of misogynistic poems and aphorisms, with the author's commentary. The heart of the spoof is a list of ways that nasty women make the best wives. Essentially, intolerant shrews force men to better themselves: husbands learn humility faced with the daily barrages of criticism, most of which they can not honestly disagree with; they stay sober and faithful, the alternative being scenes; their nasty wives keep them generous, avarice being out of the question faced with those outstretched hands and menacing stares; they stay thin: dinnertime being the right time for scolding, there is little temptation to linger at table. Nasty women teach the choleric man to restrain himself, as rage only makes things worse. (The author repeatedly decries wife-beating and violence against women, both for moral and practical reasons.) Above all, a shrewish wife teaches men patience, that "heroic virtue," so necessary in the world no matter who one is. Much is made of Socrates, who acknowledged his debt to shrieking, table-overturning Xantippe for making him a philosopher. The author concludes that, far from an evil to be avoided, a nasty wife is the greatest treasure a man can hope for. Louis Coquelet was a prolific wit and author of facetious texts (several of which were "Eloges de ... i.e., "in praise of": nothing; something; gout; peasants; lies, and so on). He published a work with a similar title, La Méchante Femme, possibly an earlier, shorter version of the text, in 1728. The preface is signed C., and the Approbation, dated 30 December 1730, also refers to a S[eigneur] C. (it cites a different form of the title, "Les Amusements du S. C. ou Paradoxes nouveaux contenans les Eloges de la mechante Femme"). Barbier implies that instead of the final blank leaf there are copies with a publisher's list, listing "les Oeuvres de M. C**". This copy bears further evidence for Coquelet's authorship: on the verso of the final blank leaf is a faintly offset reverse image, from a damp sheet, of the title-page of a different work, Eloge des Paysans, aux Paysans. A woodcut vignette is visible but no imprint. That work, published under one of Coquelet's pseudonyms, appeared in 1731 in Paris, with imprints Paris: chez P. Morisset, or the Hague. Antoine de Heuqueville, who published the present edition, was a printer-bookseller; Pierre Morisset was only a bookseller, so one may deduce that Heuqueville must have printed the Eloge des Paysans. OCLC locates 4 copies, of which one in the US (Houghton). Barbier II:81; Gay-Lemonnyer II:88; Cioranescu, 18e siècle 21126.

        Tentamina experimentorum naturalium captorum in Academia del Cimento sub auspiciis serenissimi principis Leopoldi Magni Etruriae Ducis et ab ejus academiae secretario conscriptorum: ex Italico in Latinum sermonem conversa. Quibus commentarios, nova experimenta, et orationem De methodo instituendi experimenta physica addidit Petrus van Musschenbroek L. A. M. Med. et Phil. et Mathes. Profess. In Acad. Ultraj.

      Joan. Et Herm. Verbeek,, Lugduni Batavorum, 1731 - In 4° (23,8×19 cm); (16), XLVIII, (12), 193, 192, (14) pp. e 32 tavv. f.t. ripiegate e una tabella. 2 parti in un volume. Bella legatura coeva in tutta pergamena rigida con titolo parlato al dorso. First edition, good copy. Frontespizio in rosso e nero. Prima edizione in ottime condizioni di conservazione di questa raccolta illustrata di esperimenti relativi alla misurazione di umidità, pressione atmosferica, la struttura del ghiaccio, caldo e freddo, capillarità, ottica, il movimento del suono, il magnete, ecc. Esemplare con leggerissima ed uniforme brunitura dovuta alla tipica qualità della carta utilizzata a Leida ma non fastidiosa e meno intense che nelle altre copie conosciute e nel complesso bellissimo esemplare. Opera di estrema importanza per la storia della fisica moderna. Qui è presente anche la prima descrizione del pirometro (Pyrometer chiamato così da Musschenbroek), uno strumento per misurare la dilatazione dei corpi solidi quando esposti al calore. Pieter van Musschenbroek (1692-1761), professore di fisica a Leida, fu un grande ammiratore di Newton e Desaguliers. Iniziatore della fisica sperimentale in Olanda, il suo insegnamento fu particolarmente apprezzato per la qualità dei suoi esperimenti. L’eccellenza delle sue lezioni aiutò a mantenere la reputazione che l’Università di Leida aveva acquisito sotto Boerhaave e Gravesande, continuando ad attrarre studenti provenienti da tutta Europa, tra i quali Jean Antoine Nollet che divenne poi il primo professore di fisica sperimentale presso l’Università di Parigi. Il suo nome rimane legato all’invenzione della così detta "bottiglia di Leida" che ebbe un’importanza cruciale sulle ricerche riguardanti l’elettricità. La bottiglia di Leida costituisce la forma più antica di condensatore. Fu utilizzata per condurre molti dei primi esperimenti sull’elettricità durante la seconda metà del XVIII secolo. In questo libro, l’autore, raccoglie e presenta con commenti, integrazioni e spiegazioni diversi esperimenti fisici portati avanti nell’Accademia del Cimento. Il tutto è preceduto da un discorso sulla storia e i fondamenti della fisica sperimentale. L’opera contiene anche la prima traduzione in latino dell’opera del Magalotti "Saggi di naturali esperienze", fatta dallo stesso Petrus van Musschenbroek che aggiunse ad essa le sue "Oratio de methodo instituendi experimenta physica" i "Commentarii" (o "Additamenta") e "Nova Experimenta" che contengono importantissime aggiunte e nuove esperienze pratiche mai prima provate. Tra gli esperimenti effettuati molti "deal with the mechanics of rigid bodies, air pressure, heat, cohesion, capillarity, phosphorescence, magnetism, and electricity. Many of these experiments have become classics in elementary instruction. One of the better-known apparatuses is the pyrometer (the name was given by Musschenbroek) first described in the Tentamina of 1731 " (Dict. of Scientific Biogr., vol. 9, pp. 594-6). Prima non comune edizione in ottime condizioni di conservazione. Rare. A good copy. Bibl.: Wellcome Vol. 4 p. 23; Graesse IV, 637 e VI, 218; Wheeler Gift Cat. 276.
