His work is considered a bridge between the established Baroque and emerging Classical styles. Lotti is thought to have influenced Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, and Johann Dismas Zelenka, all of whom had copies of Lotti's mass, the Missa Sapientiae". (Wikipedia).

        Recueil de plusieurs Plans des Ports et Rades et de quelques Cartes particulières de la Mer Méditerranée, avec les figures des Terres remarquables pour les reconnoissances des Atterrages

      [Paris or Marseille?] 1732-46 - Quarto (340 × 270 mm). Contemporary calf, gilt arms to both boards of Charles-Eugène-Gabriel, marquis de La Croix de Castries, secretary of state for the navy from 1780 to 1787, and after 1783 marshal of France, rebacked with the original spine laid down, new red morocco label, raised bands, floral and foliate devices in the compartments, French fillet gilt panel to the boards, double rule edge-roll, marbled endpapers. A little rubbed, slight streaking on the boards, light toning, some offsetting and occasional spotting, but a very good copy. Engraved title, 70 double-page engraved charts, of which four are folding and two are printed on one mapsheet, and 10 double-page engraved coastal profiles. First and only edition of this uncommon collection of charts, including the first printed chart of Monaco, a large folding map of Marseilles, and accurate charts of most of the ports, harbours and bays of the region. Ayrouard's work forms a working "waggoner" for the coast, recording soundings, anchorages, and pilotage notes on rocks and reefs, and includes a series of coastal profiles as a further aid to navigation. This pilot would subsequently be drawn on by numerous hydrographers, most notably William Heather who cites Ayrouard in his New Mediterranean Pilot of 1802. Ayrouard dedicates the work to Jean Frédérick Phélypeaux, comte de Maurepas, secretary to the royal household and minister of the navy in the court of Louis XV, who was prominent in attempts to introduce a more scientific approach to naval affairs until he was exiled in 1749 for writing derogatory epigrams about the king's mistress, Madame de Pompadour. The Conseil de la Marine, for whom this work appears to have been produced, had been founded in 1720 as a central depository for maps, plans, journals, and memoirs relating to navigation. Of the hydrographer Ayrouard, little is known beyond the brief details he gives on the title where he describes himself as "Royal pilot of the King's Galleys," and explains that these charts were prepared by him on voyages that he undertook on the coast, leading him to add further pilotage notes for the safe entry into certain of the harbours and roads ("avec les Remarques necessaires qu'il faut observer pour l'entrée á Certains Ports et autres Endroits"). Similarly, the engraver of these superbly-detailed charts, Louis Corne, was known to Tooley solely from this work. It is possible that this was a local production, perhaps produced in Marseille, hydrographer and engraver brought together under the aegis of the Conseil de la Marine to produce this pilot for the benefit of visiting French naval ships. Scarce: OCLC records just six copies outside France. NMM 206; Shirley, British Library, M.AYR-1a.; LC 7862. The Map Collector, Issue 24, p.49, 'How Monaco evolved on maps and views', by David Lyon.

He then refers to several others (John George Grezzell, James Sacks, �Waldsmid�, and Monsieur de Collet), each supporting milk. � Sinclair states that milk is �highly beneficial� to the improvement of health when effected by gout. He claims it has �almost a certainty of success� [his own italics].

        Les avantures de Jacques Sadeur dans la découverte et le voyage de la Terre Australe

      Amsterdam, David Mortier, 1732, in-12, [16]-341-[3] pp, veau marbré de l'époque, dos lisse et fleuronné, pièce de titre fauve, tranches rouges, gardes de papier dominoté, Cette célèbre utopie, parue pour la première fois en 1676 sous le titre La Terre Australe Connue, serait, d'après Pierre Versins, des plus singulières et son caractère serait trop joyeux pour que les auteurs genevois aient pu en goûter toute la saveur. Le héros, hermaphrodite, est dans une Australie peuplée d'androgynes où il n'y a pas de sexe. Les habitants de cette contrée sont gouvernés par la Raison et la Géométrie et ne connaissent pas la religion. Leur langue est d'une grande beauté ; ils ne savent pas ce qu'est la maladie, n'enfantent pas dans la douleur et ont des animaux inconnus. Et Foigny de décrire plusieurs milliers d'inventions réalisées par ces Australiens. La présente édition a été donnée par l'abbé Raguenet qui en a rendu le titre plus attrayant pour les lecteurs du dix-huitième siècle. Gabriel de Foigny (1630?-1692), cordelier défroqué, abjura le catholicisme en 1666. Il se réfugia en Suisse auprès des protestants. Il devint correcteur d'imprimerie, professeur de musique et auteur d'ouvrages de pédagogie. Bel exemplaire portant au second feuillet un ex-libris manuscrit ancien, "A moy, Léopold P. de Lobenstein", rogné en pied, donc antérieur à la reliure. Notons les très belles gardes de papier dominoté aux motifs floraux, jaune et ocre. Petite déchirure, sans manque, au titre. Pierre Versins, Encyclopédie de l'utopie, p. 338.

He became deacon of the Oratory of St. Magloire and was noted for his critique of the papal bull Unigenitus, which condemned Pasquier Quesnel's annoted translation of the Bible He gave his annual family pension to the poor, and in his retirement he lived in a state of extreme poverty. He retired to a modest house in Faubourg Saint-Marceau, Paris, where he led a very austere life. Indeed his living condition was so lowly that he "lodged in a hutch of planks set up in a courtyard, wore a hair shirt, and ate one meal a day, all while knitting stockings for the poor and giving advice to those who asked for it." He became increasingly reclusive, and his ascetic lifestyle became increasingly severe. He was apparently considered a local saint by many. Only 36 years old, Paris died in 1727. Cardinal Archbishop Noailles came to attend his funeral in the small chapel at Saint-Medard. During the funeral and after, people began to collect snippets of hair and fingernails, splinters of wood from his casket & soil from his gravesite, which might serve as holy relics. In 1731 a phenomenal series of events began being reported at the graveyard which reportedly brought about extraordinary cures, after people visiting the grave experiencing "violent convulsive movements which overtook the patients" These people became known as the "Convulsionnaires of Saint-Medard". Shortly after the funeral, his tomb became the site of religious pilgrimages, purported wonder-working and supernatural events. Miracles were said to be performed before his tomb and left people in a state of ecstasy. In 1731 there was a movement by the Jansenists to canonize Monsieur de Paris as a saint in acknowledgement of th [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Specchietto di tutte le messe, uffizi, messe cantate, limo.e, & altri oblighi di nra Opa di Carità. Compilato l'anno 1732.

      - [Firenze], 1732, manoscritto su carta, in chiarissima grafia, in-folio, leg. originale in piena pelle su assi di legno, decorata a secco: piatti inquadrati da due cornici concentriche congiunte agli angoli (le due cornici sono formate da due filetti a quadruplo filo con inserito all'interno un fregio fitomorfo impresso a rotella), campo centrale con singoli ferri fitomorfi impressi agli angoli e fregio centrale formato dallo stesso ferro ripetuto 4 volte. Dorso a 4 nervi con titolo manoscritto su tassello di carta e singoli ferri floreali impressi a secco nei compartimenti. Fermagli originali ai piatti, (bindelle in pelle con terminali di attacco in metallo). Carte [92], le ultime 9 bianche. E' presente una cartulazione manoscritta coeva sulle prime 83 carte. Nel 1487 fu istituita in Firenze una Congregazione di Sacerdoti, la quale fu chiamata Opera di Carità allo scopo di assistere tutti Cappellani del Duomo durante la vecchiaia o le malattie. Coll'andar del tempo quest'Opera di Carità accrebbe il suo patrimonio non solo per i sacerdoti, che volontariamente vi si erano iscritti, ma più ancora per i lasciti a suo favore di molte persone, nobili e possidenti fiorentini. Questo volume raccoglie tutti gli obblighi contratti dall'Opera con questi donatori: messe in onore, cerimonie religiose, preghiere in favore; ed è divertente notare come alcune funzioni vengano improvvisamente interrotte perché il pagamento del personaggio o della famiglia non è pervenuto, o riprese in caso di pagamento effettuato; curioso è anche che alcune messe in onore fossero previste per molti anni a venire: in un caso si sarebbero dovute interrompere solo in pieno XX secolo. Segnaliamo infine la presenza d'un elenco dei beni immobili posseduti dall'Opera con le relative rendite (entrate) di ciascuno di essi, e un elenco delle spese effettuate dall'Opera durante quell'anno. Volume in ottime condizioni. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Singapore, Strait of Malacca

      A very rare map of Singapore, included in Celebi´s famous "Mirror of the World" by Celebi, printed by Ibrahim Muteferrika, the first printed in Turkey. The Jihannuma or Mirror of the World was author by Katib Celebi (1609 - 1657), was a renowned historian, bibliographer, and geographer. Muteferrika (1674 - 1745) was born near Transylvania (Kolozsvar), he was captured by the Ottomans at a young age during his appointment as diplomat; whilst in Istanbul he became familiarized with the Turkish, their language, customs and religion, and soon became fascinated, converting into Islam. Muteferrika was a learned humanist, educated in geography, astronomy, philosophy, and economy. Sultan Ahmed III gave him license to become a printer, and thus he began the first printing press of moveable Arabic type in Turkey, under Islamic auspices. The first book printed in Turkey was Vankuli´s Kitab-i Lugat-i Vankuli; the second was Celebi´s Tuhfet ul-Kibar fi Esfar Il-Bihar (1729). The press gave birth to 17 works, until it was discontinued in 1742. Muteferrika is regarded as one of the champions of Ottoman reform of the 18th century, and the introducer of the printing press into the Ottoman Empire.

        A Collection of Voyages and Travels

      London: John Walthoe, 1732. In fine condition.. Eight volumes, folio, two works in matching binding, some 213 engraved plates including work by Herman Moll, Johannes Kip, and others (many double-page or folding), engraved and woodcut illustrations throughout; a handsome set in late eighteenth-century Russia, marbled edges. A splendid set of the two great voyage anthologies of the early eighteenth century, in handsome contemporary matched bindings. This set contains the Churchill anthology in its second improved edition and the first edition of the supplementary Osborne series, better known as the "Harleian" or "Oxford Voyages".Copies of the various editions of the Churchill Collection, in particular, do appear on the market from time to time, but almost always in dilapidated condition - the result of their substantial size and the use that they were subjected to as the major source for voyage information in the early eighteenth century. This copy is in superb condition, the bindings bright and the text and plates remarkably fresh. The substantial volumes contain many accounts of voyages to a great many places, a number of accounts appearing for the first time, or at least for the first time in English. Originally published in 1704 in four volumes, it appears here in its second, much augmented six-volume edition.The success of the work is a reflection of an audience keenly interested in what was a time of energetic exploration and trade expansion throughout the world. For example, the first volume here contains descriptions of the lands and peoples of China, Formosa, Japan, the Congo, and South Africa, lands just beginning to be known to Europeans, as well as accounts of relatively less mysterious but still unfamiliar places such as Egypt and the Ukraine.The final two volumes of the Churchill anthology contain materials new to this edition. The fifth volume is devoted largely to Africa, containing accounts of the lands which in the seventeenth century were called Guinea and Lower Ethiopia, but which in fact include the entire coast from Senegal through Angola. Native life, European settlements, animals, natural products, and much more are described in great detail. There is also a translation from the Spanish of Herrera's account of the discoveries of Columbus.The contents of the other volumes are varied, with reports of the Solomon Islands, Dutch shipwrecks in the East Indies, Ovalle's work on Chile (with a fine depiction of the Southern Cross), Virginia, attempts to discover a Northwest Passage, the sages of India, and the land of Tonqueen, now North Vietnam, among very many other reports. Much of the third volume is Baldaeus' work on the East Indies translated from the Dutch, while Nieuhoff's work on the East Indies, also translated, appears in the second volume.The plates are of special appeal, often showing very striking scenes of exotic life, particularly in tropical climes. They include detailed depictions of natives involved in sometimes fascinating activities (witchcraft, elephant catching) as well as many plates of botanical and zoological interest and a number of views of harbours or military engagements.This set is supplemented by the two-volume work by Thomas Osborne, generally known as the "Harleian Voyages" or the "Oxford Voyages". These two very scarce volumes were published by Osborne from the unpublished manuscripts in the collection of the earl of Oxford. Although separately published much later, the two Osborne volumes are often described as a supplement to the Churchill collection of voyages.Osborne's first volume comprises travels mainly in the Near and Middle East, while the second volume comprises voyages to India, East Asia, the East Indies, Africa, and North America. The maps are after Dutch cartographer Herman Moll and the frontispiece map in the second volume is "A Chart of the East Indies?" with the north and north-west coasts of Australia delineated in accordance with Dutch discoveries.

Somewhat flaked and crackled on the boards, but spines presenting very well, light browning, else very good. Second, enlarged edition. "Compiled by Awnsham and John Churchill, this is a very valuable collection, both for its range of coverage and for the fact that it gives the original accounts" (Hill). It includes the voyages of Nieuhoff, Baldaeus, and Thomas Phillips. Originally published in 1704 in four volumes, this edition includes an additional two volumes. By the third edition (1744-7), the work had grown to eight volumes. Awnsham Churchill was John Locke's publisher, and in the third edition the preliminary essay on the history of navigation is described as being 'supposed to be written by the celebrated Mr. Locke', and it was included in the 1812 edition of his works. However, "The authorship is doubtful, but Locke had much to do with getting together the materials of the collection, which is likely to have been produced at his instigation. Locke was upon friendly terms with Awnsham Churchill for many years, and left him a small legacy" (DNB).

Three volumes. Folio (10 by 16 inches), period-style full speckled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, red morocco spine labels. $8500.Scarce first edition in English of Augustin Calmet’s impressive biblical dictionary, illustrated with 160 copperplate engravings (over 50 double-page) depicting scriptural places, people and traditions, the Duke of Bedford's copy, very handsomely bound.A French Benedictine abbot, historian and pioneering biblical exegete, Antoine Augustin Calmet authored several key theological texts as well as this comprehensive dictionary of ""all the Proper Names mentioned in the Old or New Testament, whether of Men, Women, Cities, Countries, Rivers, Mountains &c."" In large part it collects explanatory essays from Calmet's ""epoch-making"" 1707 commentary on the Latin Vulgate, ""which treat such topics as Hebrew poetry, music, weights and measures, medicine, marriage customs, burial customs, military organization, circumcision, the Sanhedrin and Hebrew schools and sects, and are, for his time, remarkably full and judicious"" (Jewish Encyclopedia).

Illustrated with 160 detailed copperplate engravings, over a third of them double-page; also with engraved vignette headpiece on first text page of each volume. Title pages printed in red and black. First published in French in two folio volumes in 1720; ""a supplement (also folio) was added in 1728. An improved and enlarged edition in four folio volumes was published in 1730"" (Catholic Encyclopedia). D'Oyly, a parish vicar, and Colson, a mathematician, began their translation prior to 1730, but revised it to take account of Calmet's changes. ""The work reveals Colson's interest in arithmetic, calculations, tables and measurement"" (DNB). Armorial bookplates of John, seventh Duke of Bedford (1710-71) and John, ninth Duke of Bedford (1766-1839); the volumes hail from the library at Woburn Abbey, Scattered light foxing, occasional light marginal dampstaining.

        Philosophia Rationalis Sive Logica, Methodo Scientifica Pertractata Et Ad Usum Scietiarum Atque Vitae Aptata. Praemittitur Discursus Praeliminaris De Philosophia in Genere

      Libraria Rengeriana, 1732-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. A handsome book. 4to. [16], 866, [18] pp. 1 folding plate. 22 x 18 cm. Contemporary vellum. Excellent binding. Clean, unmarked pages. Minor toning. Latin. Christian Wolff was a Rationalist philosopher of the German Enlightenment. Wolff is regarded as the central historical figure who linked the philosophical systems of Leibniz and Kant. "According to Kant, in the "Preface" to the Critique of Pure Reason (2nd ed), Wolff is "the greatest of all dogmatic philosophers." Wolff's "strict method" in science, Kant explains, is predicated on "the regular ascertainment of principles, the clear determination of concepts, the attempt at strictness in proofs, and the prevention of audacious leaps in inferences" (Kant, 1998, 120). Like many other philosophers of the Modern period, such as Descartes, Hobbes, and Spinoza, Wolff believed the method of mathematics, if properly applied, could be used to expand other areas of human knowledge. "The influences of Wolff's systematization of philosophy include the early Kant, Alexander Baumgarten, Samuel Formey, Johann Christoph Gottsched, Martin Knutzen, Georg Friedrich Meier, and Moses Mendelssohn." (Matt Hettche, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, 2006)

It is here that the Gutenberg Bible is identified and first described. De Bure was the first in a long tradition of French scholar-booksellers" (Breslauer & Folter). "The long search for a rational order and the demand for a specific professional competence, found expression in the preliminary discourse with which Guillaume-François De Bure (1732-1782) introduced his Bibliographie . ... Taking note of the different viewpoints of academics researchers and booksellers, he defined the respective environments and duties of each, comparing the "science des gens des lettres" and the "science d'un libraire", which had as its focus the typographical characteristics of the book and its commercial value, in order to meet the needs of the "amateur" and the "curieux" and to determine the prices of books" (Balsamo).Very good set, some volumes with some occasional foxing.

        Recreations perspectives et essais des nouveaus cabinets des berceaus, cages, ou volieres artificieles, et attiques des jardinages . . . Perspectivische Belustigung und neue Versuche von Kleinen Lust-Hausern, wie auch allerhand Kunstlichen Vogel-Bauern samt unterschiedlichen Aufsatzen und Garten-Werck

      Nuremberg: Johann Christoph Weigels, 1732. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary red half roan, rubbed and stained; plates are bright and clean. From the library of the Mathesis Scientiarum Genitrix, Leiden. First edition of an uncommon work by the Nuremberg mathematician and architectural theorist, J.J. Schubler, presenting stunning forms of garden architecture whose different elements - archways, fountains, sundials, clocks, glockenspiel, bird cages, and topiary - are often fantastically combined. Schübler (1689-1741), born in Nuremberg, had an extremely varied career as an architect, draughtsman, mathematician, painter, and sculptor. The son of a braid and tassel maker, his prodigious talents were first recognized during his early childhood. In 1696, fire destroyed the Egidienkirche, a Romanesque cathedral in Nuremberg. Aged only seven, Schübler was then reported to have created an architecturally exact drawing of the cathedral from memory, as it had appeared before its destruction. He then received his first drawing lesson from the noted architectural painter J.A. Graff, and at age nine, became part of the atelier of Jakob von Sandrart, the founder and director of the Nuremberg Academy of Fine Arts. From 1705 to 1713, Schübler completed his education through extended travels through Europe where his interests in mathematics and physics solidified. In 1717 he was asked to build a triumphal arch in Sulzbach. Though his work was widely praised, he did not accept a royal assignment until 1741, when Schübler was asked to travel to Berlin, to work as an architect in the court of Friedrich II. Tragically, he died on 11 September of the same year, and was never able to fulfil this long-awaited role. Despite never having worked in a royal court, Schübler was extremely productive during the first half of the eighteenth century. This does not mean, however, that his work was universally well-regarded. Apparently his manner of speaking - as demonstrated in the captions to many of his prints - was decidedly baroque, which made the works 'difficult to enjoy.' Secondly, they often require a great deal of prior technical knowledge to understand. His largest and most often reproduced work was first published by Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg, before 1724. This publication, entitled Ausgab feines vorhabenden Wercks (Edition of fine intended works), presents designs for a vast array of objects, including altars, pipe organs, libraries, beds, clocks, garden gates, and fountains. The inventiveness of his later designs, such as the modern-looking projector and stove, was as much guided by contemporary scientific innovation as his architectural work was ruled by ancient mathematical principles. Though sometimes obscured by the extensive ornaments he favored, it is clear that Schübler's early interest in math and science remained firm throughout his career, enabling him to produce works that are practical as well as decorative - a perfect balance between the Late Baroque and the Age of Enlightenment.

Second edition in the original English (revised) of the first two volumes, first edition in English of the third; extra-illustrated with five additional plates, most copies found with 56 plates and maps only. The first two volumes, which largely concern the Ottoman Empire, were first published in 1723, with a popular French translation appearing in 1727; the third volume, which concerns later travels Prussia, Russia and Poland, was originally published in French in 1732. La Mottraye (1674-1747), of Huguenot origin, began his travels in 1696 with a tour through Scandinavia. He sailed from London for Constantinople in 1698. He travelled widely in Turkey and the Levant and witnessed the Janissaries' overthrow of Sultan Mustafa II in 1703. During the Russo-Turkish War of 1710-11 he visited Charles XII of Sweden, in exile at Bender, and entered his employ. He also visited the Crimea, Circassia, and the Volga estuary. "This important work describes La Mottraye's travels over a 26-year period which took him through Northern Europe to Tartary and the Levant. The plates are of particular interest and include many signed by Hogarth which form part of his early work. They illustrate antiquities, objets d'art, and scenes from Eastern life" (Blackmer).

        An Abridged Plan of the River Dee An Abridged Plan of the River Dee

      John Mackay jr. c.1732., [London], - The River Dee Engraved map, small hole to the right, otherwise good condition. Almost nothing is known about John Mackay beyond the small number of surveys that he completed; he was a mathematician and surveyor, with a father of the same name and profession, with whom he surveyed the Parish of St. George's Hanover Square in 1725, both describing themselves as of the Parish of St. James's Westminster. Alexander Gordon's Itinerarium Septentrionale: or, a journey thro' most of the Counties of Scotland, and those in the North of England . (London, 1726) contains a map by a John Mackay, entitled '. This Map shewing the situation of the principal Roman Camps Forts, Walls, etc. between ye River Tyne in England & the Tay in Scotland .' which might be by one of the pair.This rare chart of the mouth of the River Dee was prepared in opposition to A Bill to Recover and Preserve the Navigation of the River Dee, in the County Palatine of Chester, 11 June 1732 .; the chart marks 'Mr. Kindersley's New Channel', which crosses 'SALTNEY MARSH' from 'THE RIVER DEE' to 'CHESTER'. There is a dividing line laid across the Wirral with the note 'All on the East Side of this Line is laid down from a Draught of the River Mersey'.The proposal was for a new cut or channel to be built through Saltney Marsh, which would mean that the marine approach to Chester would follow the southern (Welsh) coast rather than the then northerly approach. It is likely that the chart was commissioned by the Chester Cheesemongers, to accompany The Case of the Cheesemongers, in and about the Cities of London and Westminster, relating to the Bill to recover and preserve the Navigation of the River Dee, in the County of Chester; the Cheesemongers conducted their trade through the port of 'PARK GATE' on the northerly approach, and they feared this route would become silted up by the new works. In this broadside, they claimed that cheese exports from Parkgate accounted for nine-tenths of Chester's exports; the lengthy explanatory text on this chart concludes:". By ye Bill depending in Parliament & ye Undertaker's protracted Survey of ye River Dee, it is evident, 1st That ye almost straight & uninterrupted Course of ye River is to be turn'd thro' an unexperienced Cutt & from thence through uncertain crooked Channels over loose shifting Sands. . Whether these ill Consequences w[hi]ch. must certainly attend the present Undertaking, are not more likely to destroy the present Navigation in Hyle Lake & the River Dee; rather than to Recover and Preserve a better, is humbly Submitted to ye Right Hon[oura]ble. the House of Lords."The opposing view was expressed in The Case of the Inhabitants of the County and City of Chester, Petitioners for the Bill to Recover and Preserve the Navigation of the River Dee; in answer to the Petition of the Cheesemongers ., and it was this view that won out. The Act was duly passed, and in 1737 a new canal, the New Cut, was completed from Chester, taking the course of the river below Chester to the Welsh side rather than English side of the estuary as before. 447 by 545mm. (17.5 by 21.5 inches). cf. Hanson, Sources of British and Irish Economic History, 4450; COPAC records only BL, Maps *1240.(10.).

        Les avantures de Jacques Sadeur dans la découverte et le voyage de la Terre Australe

      1732 - de (16), 341, (3) pp. Amsterdam, David Mortier, 1732, in-12, de (16), 341, (3) pp., veau marbré de l'époque, dos lisse et fleuronné, pièce de titre fauve, tranches rouges, gardes de papier dominoté, Cette célèbre utopie, parue pour la première fois en 1676 sous le titre La Terre Australe Connue, serait, d'après Pierre Versins, des plus singulières et son caractère serait trop joyeux pour que les auteurs genevois aient pu en goûter toute la saveur. Le héros, hermaphrodite, est dans une Australie peuplée d'androgynes où il n'y a pas de sexes. Les habitants de cette contrée sont gouvernés par la Raison et la Géométrie et ne connaissent pas la religion. Leur langue est d'une grande beauté ; ils ne savent pas ce qu'est la maladie, n'enfantent pas dans la douleur et ont des animaux inconnus. Et Foigny de décrire plusieurs milliers d'inventions réalisées par ces Australiens La présente édition a été donnée par l'abbé Raguenet qui en a rendu le titre plus attrayant pour les lecteurs du dix-huitième siècle. Gabriel de Foigny (1630?-1692), cordelier défroqué, abjura le catholicisme en 1666. Il se réfugia en Suisse auprès des protestants. Il devint correcteur d'imprimerie, professeur de musique et auteur d'ouvrages de pédagogie. Bel exemplaire portant au second feuillet un ex-libris manuscrit ancien, "A moy, Léopold P. de Lobenstein", rogné en pied, donc antérieur à la reliure. Notons les très belles gardes de papier dominoté aux motifs floraux, jaune et ocre. Petite déchirure, sans manque, au titre. Pierre Versins, Encyclopédie de l'utopie, p. 338.

        Alciphron.

      J. Tonson, London 1732 - Volume 1: 1 blank leaf + TP + [i]-[ii] = Advertisement + [iii]-[ix] = Contents + [1]-350 + 1 blank leaf, Octavo. Volume 2: 1 blank leaf + TP + [i]-[v] = Contents + [1]-358 + 2 blank leaves, Octavo. First Edition, First Issue. (Keynes 15). "In 1733, he published Alciphron, a series of dialogues in which he applied his principles to refute the current forms of freethinking" (PMM p. 105)."Berkeley wrote the Alciphron dialogues in the years 1729-31 while he was enjoying a rest from more worldly affairs in the pleasant surroundings of Newport, Rhode Island. Some of the Dialogues have traditional associations with various places in the neighborhood. They constitute a defense of Christianity from the point of view of an Anglican divine, though based on the philosophical beliefs defined in Berkeley's earlier works. The book attracted much more attention than any previous work by Berkeley.Alciphron is regarded as an outstanding example of English literature among works of philosophy." (Keynes, pp. 36-37). Philosopher" in gilt lettering on a red field. The Earl of Roden's bookplates to the inside front cover and the front free end paper in both volumes. A clean, tight, and bright copy. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]
