        An Enquiry Into the Origin of Honour, and the Usefulness of Christianity in War. By the Author of the Fable of the Bees

      London: For John Brotherton. 1732. First Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary sprinkled calf rebacked with five raised bands and contrasting spine label bearing gilt titles, armorial crest pasted to front pastedown, endpapers a little browned else internally clean and bright. A very nice copy. ESTC: T59021, Bernard Mandeville (1670-1733) is most famous as the author of "The Fable of the Bees" (1714) in which he dissects human nature and concludes that the human vices, as much as any virtues, are essential to a well ordered society. Mandeville claimed that he wasn't recommending vice to individuals, only observing that many of the values of the society in which he lived, such as the increase of trade, imperial ambition, even politeness, were incompatible with virtue and innocence. A second part of the Fable (1729) was followed by this work, in which Mandeville expands on his thinking about 'honour' as a sort of perverted false courage. While true courage might be a virtue, honour has its roots in pride and shame and so is seen as a useful device in the socialisation of humans. Mandeville's anti-clericalism is revealed in his account of how a perverted version of the truly peaceful doctrine of Christianity, making use of concepts of honour and duty, can be used to motivate soldiers. , 8vo, [2] xi [9] 240 pp .

        Arithmetica universalis; sive De compositione et resolutione arithmetica liber.

      Apud Joh. et Herm. Verbeek bibliopolae, Lugduni Batavorum [Leida]. MDCCXXXII [1732]. [8], 344 p., XIII c. di tav. inc., 4° (28 cm), cart. Frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero. Marca (Motto: Varietas delectat) calcogr. sul front. Iniziali e fregi xil. Title printed in red and black. Engraved vignette on title plus 13 folding engraved plates. Arithmetica universalis was first printed in Latin in Cambridge in 1707 and based on lecture notes by Newton for the period 1673 to 1683. There is no record of the lectures ever being present, but these form an important complement to Newton?s Principia composed at the same time. William Whiston prepared the first edition which also included Halley?s method of finding roots of equations arithmetically. Newton covers the essentials of algebra: notation, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, extraction of roots, reduction of fractions, reduction of geometrical questions to equations, and resolution of equations. In addition, Newton extended Descartes? rule of signs to imaginary roots. He also formulated a rule to determine the number of inaginary roots of any equation. The rule was complicated and offered without proof. Some idea of its originality is shown by the fact that it took another 180 years before the rule was proven by rigorous analysis. This continental edition was the first edited by ?Gravesande and includes additional treatises by Halley, Colson, DeMoivre, Maclaurin, and Campbell. There is also an Appendix: De Solutione et Constructione Aequationum Scripta Varia, extracted from the Phil. Trans. Babson 204; Gray 279; Wallis 279. Please also see my other Newton listings.

        A Letter from South Carolina; Giving an Account of the Soil, Air, Product, Trade, Government, Laws, Religion, People, Military Strength, &c. of that Province; Together with the Manner and necessary Charges of Setling [sic] a Plantation there, and the Annual Profit it will produce ... The Second Edition

      London: J. Clarke, 1732. 8vo. (7 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches). 63,[1]pp. Later marbled paper wrappers. Scarce South Carolina promotional tract anonymously written by the first Indian Agent to Carolina. This work presents "an unusually fine account of the fur trade, Indian relations, and the activities of the French west of the mountains. As to accuracy of observations, style, organization and presentation, it is one of the finest accounts of colonial South Carolina. Nairne ... had advocated the planning of a Swiss colony west of the Savannah, but he was never able to accomplish this objective, since the Yamassees burned him at the stake in 1715" (Clark). Styled the "Second Edition" on the titlepage, this is in fact the third edition, after those of 1710 and 1718. The attribution of authorship has frequently been debated. Others have suggested that the author was Jean Pierre Purry, though it is more likely that he was the recipient of the letter. Nairne, one of the great figures in the early history of South Carolina, was appointed "Agent and Itinerary Justice Among the Indians" in 1707. Sabin 87861; Howes N5 "B"; Clark I:128.

        September 1732

      [from "Twelve Months of Fruit"]. London: Robert Furber, 1732. Copper engraving by Henry Fletcher after Casteels, contemporary hand-colouring. Expert restoration to margin. 18 5/8 x 15 inches. A marvellous cornucopia of real fruit. Robert Furber was a nurseryman with gardens near Hyde Park gate in Kensington, and for many years a churchwarden at St. Mary Abbot's, Kensington. Following on from the success of his Twelve months of Flowers catalogue (first published in 1730), Furber employed the same methods two years later, when publicising the wide range of fruit that he could provide to the great gardens of England: each plate depicts different arrangements of fruit 'arranged on or around bowls, dishes, or baskets ... from the apples and pears of January and February to the cherries, currants, mulberries, plums, peaches, strawberries, and other soft fruit of June ... [A total of 364 varieties] are shown, each one numbered in reference to the names printed below each picture. By the name of each variety is a letter S, D, E, or W, for standard, dwarf, espalier, or wall, and indicating its habit of growth and most productive method of treatment' (Oak Spring Pomona p.65). This plate (like all the others in the series) is based on the incomparable paintings of Pieter Casteels (1684-1749) who came from Antwerp and settled in London in 1708. Between 1708 and 1735 (when he retired from painting) Casteels enjoyed great success with his paintings of nature: birds, flowers and, as here, fruit. Cf. Dunthorne 117; cf. Henrey III, 734; cf. Nissen BBI 765; cf. Oak Spring Pomona 26.

        Les avantures de M. Robert Chevalier, dit de Beauchene, Capitaine de Flibustiers dans la Nouvelle France

      Rare first edition of this narrative of piracy in Canada, considered a holly fictional account. 1732. Paris. Etienne Ganeau. Two volumes in 12mo (160 mm x 95 mm). 1 [blank] + 9 ff. + 390 + 1 [blank]; 1 [blank] + 4 ff. + 363 + 1 [blank] + 6 engraved plates. Contemporary mottled calf, elegantly gilt spines with red morocco lettering pieces, hinges split but holding firm, head of spines chipped. Remarkably fresh and clean copy. Rare first edition of Le Sage´s biography; although considered by some as a wholly fictional account of a privateer?s adventures during the French and English wars in Canada, there is some evidence to the contrary, in fact, he is said to have been born near Montreal (a baptismal record was found at Montreal for a Robert Chevalier, whom it is believed later became the sieur de Beauchene, later killed by the English at Tours in 1731). Beauchene?s memoirs manuscript was apparently given by his widow to Le Sage, celebrated for his authorship of Gil Blas. Illustrated with 6 engraved plates by J.B. Scotin after Bonnard; Cohen-de-Ricci call for 4 plates. Cohen-de-Ricci, 635. Sabin 4163.

"The poem is the most comprehensive, creative mythological work that has come down to us from antiquity."(Galinsky). Ovid was a major inspiration for Shakespeare, Dante, Chaucer and others. Ovid was arguably the popular poet of his time. Text in Dutch and Latin. Age wear and abrasions on bindings. Surface hairline cracks on spines. Discoloration to boards. Wear to edges. Many pages have previously been removed along gutter and later crudely reattached with clear tape (not affecting text or plates). Usual rippling to pages.
