        The Life and Genuine Character of Doctor Swift. Written by Himself

      London: [Benjamin Motte for] J. Roberts, 1733. First edition. Engraved device on title, engraved headpieces. 19, [1] pp., with half-title. Folio. Modern marbled wrappers. Leaves extended at inner margins, light creasing, soiling to verso of final leaf. First edition. Engraved device on title, engraved headpieces. 19, [1] pp., with half-title. Folio. "Nearly as much mystification surrounds the publication of the poems as its authorship" (Foxon)"This poem is included in the Swift canon, partly on the evidence of Mrs. Letitia Pilkington who, in her Memoirs, claimed that her husband, Matthew Pilkington, had negotiated its publication on Swift's behalf, and partly on internal evidence. Swift himself denied authorship …" (Rothschild). The poem bears resemblance to Verses on the Death of Dr. Swift (1739), in which Swift similarly treats Rochefoucauld's maxim ("He says, 'Whenever Fortune sends / Disaster, to our Dearest Friends, / Although, we outwardly may Grieve, / We oft, are Laughing in our Sleeve"). With a dedication by the printer - signing as "L.M." - to Alexander Pope, whom Foxon suggests as a possible author of the poem. Foxon S884; Teerink 727; Rogers 844; Rothschild 2143; Williams II, p. 541

        Particularités et observations sur les ministres des finances de France les plus célèbres, depuis 1660 jusqu'en 1791

His father was a maf ire des comptes he was educated for the law, and became advocate at the Chtelet in 1755, master of requests to the council of state in 1760, and intendant successively of Auvergne, Provence and La Rochelle. He had repeatedly shown great independence of character, protesting against the accusation of Caradeuc de La Chalotais in 1766, and refusing in 1771 to suppress the local courts of justice in obedience to Maupeou. He was made a councillor of state in 1775 by the influence of Louis de Bourbon, duke of Penthivre, and in 1780 he was attached to the court in the honorary office of chancellor to the comte d Artois (afterwards Charles X.). He followed the princes into exile, and lived for some years in London. During the emigration period he spent large sums on the alleviation of the poverty of his fellow immigrants, returning to France only at the second restoration. Between 1780 and 1787 he had founded a series of prizes, the awards to be made by the French academy and the academies of science and medicine. These prizes fell into abeyance during the revolutionary period, but were re-established in 1815. Montyon died on the 29th of December 1820, bequeathing io,ooo francs for the perpetual endowment of each of the following prizes: for the discovery of the means of rendering some mechanical process less dangerous to the workman for the perfecting of any technical improvement in a mechanical process for the book which during the year rendered the greatest service to humanity the prix de vertu for the most courageous act on the part of a poor Frenchmanthe awards being left as before to the learned academies. Montyon wrote a series of works, chiefly on political economy: Eloge de Michel de lhpital (Paris, 1777) Recherches et considerations sur la population de la France (1778), a share of which is attributed to his secretary, Moheau Rapport fail a Louis XVIII. (Constance, 1796), in which he maintained in opposition to Calonnes Tableau de lEurope that France had always possessed a constitution, which had, however, been violated by the kings of France Letat statistique du Tunkin (1811) and Particularites . . . sur les ministres des finances en France (1812)..

        The Impertinent, or a Visit to the Court. A Satyr. By an Eminent Hand

      London: John Wileord [i.e Wilford], 1733. First edition. [3]-16 pp., lacking half-title. 4to. Modern half calf and marbled boards, morocco title label on front cover. First edition. [3]-16 pp., lacking half-title. 4to. Imitation of Horace by Way of Donne. First edition of one of the rarest of Pope's works, an imitation of Donne's Satyre IV (c. 1597), itself a reworking of Horce's Satire 1.9 ("Ibam forte via sacra"). In Horace's poem the speaker is pestered by a man petitioning favors and can only break free when the man's adversary appears; both Pope and Donne change the location to the court. Pope's version contains a pointed attack on Walpole and was published anonymously and with the printer's name perhaps deliberately changed from Wilford to Wileord. Pope later acknowledged authorship by including the poem in his 1735 Works under the title "Fourth Satire of Dr. John Donne," and several unauthorized editions followed in 1737. The half-title is missing in most, though not all, recorded copies; Griffith notes a half-title is allowed for by the pagination, though it was lacking in both copies he cites. A clean, wide-margined copy. ESTC T5678; Foxon P898; Griffith 317; Keynes, Donne 112n

        La araucana. Primera, segunda y tercera parte

      Francisco Martinez Abad, impresor, Madrid 1733 - Don Alonso de Ercilla y Zúñiga nació en Madrid el 7 de agosto de 1533. Ligado a la nobleza y hombre culto, fue paje del futuro Rey Felipe II y acompañando a éste realizó diversos viajes por Europa. En 1555, el joven Alonso se embarcó rumbo al Perú con Jerónimo de Alderete, quien falleció en las cercanías de Panamá, y posteriormente llegó a Chile en 1557, formando parte de la expedición del nuevo gobernador García Hurtado de Mendoza. Luego, el 26 de junio de aquel año, los españoles desembarcaron en la Isla Quiriquina, desde donde pasaron a la destruida ciudad de Concepción (hoy Penco) donde construyeron un fuerte para repeler los constantes ataques de los araucanos. Tras sangrientos combates siguieron hacia el sur, hasta finalmente llegar a la isla grande de Chiloé, desde donde comenzó el retorno. De este modo, el poeta y soldado Ercilla estuvo en el teatro de operaciones de la Guerra de Arauco en 1557 hasta finales del año siguiente, luego de que un incidente ocurrido en la ciudad de La Imperial fuera la causa de su destierro al Perú, ordenado por el gobernador García Hurtado de Mendoza. Compuesta en octavas reales y dividida en tres partes con un total de 37 cantos, "La Araucana" de don Alonso de Ercilla y Zúñiga es el primer gran poema épico dedicado a la conquista de América y el mejor en lengua castellana. Desde su aparición en 1569, "La Araucana", costeada por su propio autor, obtuvo éxito, lo que obligó a Ercilla a preparar la segunda parte en 1578 y, más tarde, en 1589, la tercera. El poema completo, con sus tres partes, se publicó en Madrid, por primera vez, en 1590. Valorada desde sus inicios, esta pieza clave del Siglo de Oro español aparece ya distinguida en el escrutinio de los libros del Quijote de Miguel de Cervantes, donde es destacada conjuntamente con "La Austriada" de Juan Rufo y "El Monserrat" de Cristóbal de Virués.

Publiées à Paris pendant le séjour de l'auteur en France, elles sont toutes en latin, à l'exception des XXIII et XXIV, rédigées en italien et formant une longue étude sur les amphithéâtres conservés en Provence et Languedoc (Nîmes, Arles, Fréjus, Orange) - toutes les illustrations du livre concernent d'ailleurs cette partie - et des XXV et XXVI, en français, l'une adressée à la marquise de Caumont, l'autre au président Bouhier. L'antiquaire véronais Scipione Maffei (1675-1755) avait commencé par collectionner des objets d'art, ce qui était la voie royale de l'érudition au XVIIIe siècle, et il acquit rapidement une grande autorité en la matière. En 1732, il entreprit un voyage archéologique dans le midi de la France, avant de passer trois ans à Paris, et ses observations sur les théâtres romains de notre pays remontent à cette expérience.

        [John Pine, engraver] Quinti Horatii Flacci Opera [First Issue]

      Londini [London]: aeneis tabulis incidit Iohannes Pine [through 1737], MDCCXXXIII-MDCCXXXVII. [1733-37]. First issue (inscription on the medal of Augustus Caesar, in vol. 2, p. 108, reads "post est," later corrected to "potest") of John Pine's "tour de force" (Blumenthal), the legendary edition of the Works of Horace, the "most elegant of English eighteenth century books." (Ray), " far ahead of its time and an influence on the future." (Levarie) Two octavo volumes, collated and complete: [30],264,[2]; [24],191,[1],[14]pp, with 324 copper-engraved portraits, vignettes, and head and tail pieces. As with most copies, our set does not include the folded letterpress leaf headed "List of the antiques in the first volume of Horace," which must have been added quite late in the print run. "The engravings are executed on a very stout, clear paper, and the tout ensemble presents to the eye a very pleasing appearance." (Moss) What's more, "copies which contain the first impressions [of the engravings, as ours] are valuable and much sought after." (Dibdin) Beautifully bound in red morocco, covers with gilt panels and corner-pieces, spines densely gilt in compartments between raised bands with gilt lettering to two compartments, wide elaborately gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, multicolored silk page ribbon in each volume. Expertly rebacked by the Old English Bindery retaining original spines. A fresh copy in a very handsome binding, "remarkable for the beauty of its engraving." (Lowndes) Brunet III, 320.

His edition of Horace is engraved throughout, text as well as ornament, though it is said that the text was first set in type and an impression transferred to the plate before it was engraved. The results are a unity between decoration and text which at times suggests Didot's Horace of 1799; a contrast between thick and thin strokes in the letters which naturally follows from the engraving process but which foreshadows the type design of Baskerville, Bodoni, and Didot; and the wide "leading" between the lines of the text which did so much to give their pages a brilliant effect." (PMM) "The subscription list printed at the beginning of the book must be one of the most illustrious of its kind, naming the great and the good from every corner of Europe, including the kings of England, Spain, and Portugal."

      - Paris, Jean-Baptiste Coignard fils, 1733. In-4, 52p. Edition originale de cet important ouvrage, en latin, théorisant l'utilisation pédagogique du théâtre dans les collèges. Ce jésuite, originaire de Caen, enseigna au collège Louis-le-Grand de 1708 à 1741 et eut pour élève Voltaire, avec qui il conservera toujours des relations suivies. Ce dernier en dit d'ailleurs : « Jésuite, du petit nombre de professeurs qui ont eu la célébrité chez les gens du monde, éloquent dans le goût de Sénèque, poète et très bel esprit. Son plus grand mérite fut de faire aimer les lettres et la vertu à ses disciples. » Porée, appliquant ce traité, écrivit des pièces destinées à être jouées par ses élèves. On en connaît aujourd'hui 11 mais nul doute qu'elles ne furent plus nombreuses. Reliure plein vélin moderne, tranches rouges, quelques petites taches et rousseurs. Deux corrections manuscrites dans le texte. Ouvrage intéressant et peu commun. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Im Anhang: Dissertation - Vom Ursprunge der Chirurgie und der Medizin, desgleichen von der Vereinigung der Medicin mit der Chirurgie und von den endlichen Trennung dieser beyden Wissenschaften*.Erste deutsche Ausgabe, übersetzt von Joh. Alexander Mischel. René-Jacques-Croissant de Garengeot (1688-1759), "berühmter französischer Chirurg, war am 30.Juli 1688 zu Viré in der Bretange geboren, wo sein Vater Chirurg des dortigen Hospitals war. Nachdem er den ersten chirurgischen Unterricht von seinem Vater erhalten, war er 5 Jahre lang im Hospital zu Angers, darauf in den grossen Marinespitälern der Bretange thätig, machte einige Seezüge mit und kam 1711 nach Paris. Er trat daselbst in den Dienst eines in der École de médecine wohnenden und von derselben beschäftigten Barbier-Chirurgen, besuchte zugleich die Vorlesungen in jener Schule es waren der Anatom Winslow, im Hôtel-Dieu Méry und Thilbaut und ausserdem Arnaud und J.L.Petit seine Lehrer. Schon ehe er 1725 in die Genossenschaft der Chirurgen aufgenommen wurde, hatte er so bedeutende Werke verfasst, wie sein "Traité des opérations de chirurgie..." worin die Lehren der bedeutendsten Chirurgen jener Zeit enthalten sind." Zu der genannten Zeit hielt er mit großem Beifall anatomische Vorlesungen in der École de médecine und wurde 1728 zum königlichen Demonstrator, anfänglich der Materia medica, dann der Operationen bei der École de chirurgie ernannt auch wurde er zum Mitglied der Acad. de chirurgie und der Londoner Royal Society." "1742 wurde er zum Chirurgien-major eines Infrantrie-Regimentes ernannt, mit dem er mehrere Feldzüge mitmachte. Während eines derselben starb er am 10.December 1759 zu Cöln an Apoplexie." "Er gehörte zu den angesehensten Chirurgen seiner Zeit, wenn er auch mancherlei Angriffe erfuhr, um die er sich jedoch wenig kümmerte. Fremde Erfahrungen mit den seinigen vereinigend, hat er fast alle Theile der operativen Chirurgie gefördert. Ohne auf Details näher einzugehen, wollen wir nur anführen, das bei den Operationen der Thränenfistel, der Nasenpolypen, der Hasenscharte, des eingeklemmten Bruches, der Hydrocele u.s.w. Modificationen von ihm angegeben worden sind. Die von ihm herrührende Vervollkommnung des Zahnschlüssels ist noch heute unter seinem Namen bekannt. Er hat aussersdem verstanden, dem ganzen Stande der Chirurgen, gegenüber den Aerzten, eine grössere Geltung zu verschaffen." -cf. Gurlt, Hirsch II, p.496 SGC I.V, p.285 Hirsch/H. II, 686 Wellcome II, 89 (1744) Morand, Opuscules de chirurgie, Pairs 1768, I, p.69 P.J.Cabaret, Journ. des connaiss. méd.-chir. 1846, p. 217 Le Roy, Dic. Hist. Med. II, p.305-309.

        REASONS FOR ESTABLISHING THE COLONY OF GEORGIA, WITH REGARD TO THE TRADE OF GREAT BRITAIN, THE INCREASE OF OUR PEOPLE, AND THE EMPLOYMENT AND SUPPORT IT WILL AFFORD TO GREAT NUMBERS OF OUR OWN POOR, AS WELL AS FOREIGN PERSECUTED PROTESTANTS. WITH SOME ACCOUNT OF THE COUNTRY, AND THE DESIGN OF THE TRUSTEES

Wrappers worn, spine perishing. Some dust soiling at edges, an occasional fox mark. Very good, in original condition. In a cloth slipcase and chemise. An important and rare Georgia tract from the time of the colony's founding, complete with a map of the region. Martyn was a strong advocate and defender of the colony, and herein gathers a number of interesting documents in addition to his own arguments, including a letter from Oglethorpe to the Trustees from Savannah, their reply to him, a list of the Trustees, etc. The map is the second state of that which first appeared in the 1732 edition of SOME ACCOUNT OF THE DESIGNS OF THE TRUSTEES FOR ESTABLISHING THE COLONY OF GEORGIA IN AMERICA, altered by removal of some of the notations and relocation of a few incidentals (see De Renne I, p.18 for details). The interesting frontispiece is an imaginary view of the laying out of Savannah. This is the first edition, second issue of Martyn's tract, and includes additions not found in the first edition, first issue. "A well-written tract; plausible in its arguments, glowing in its descriptions, valuable for its information, and pertinent in its appeals to the philanthropic and benevolent" - Sabin.

"Pierre Fauchard has been called the 'Father of Dentistry'; his comprehensive and scientific account of all that concerned dentistry in the 18th century is one of the greatest books in the history of the subject" (Garrison-M). "in fact the first scientific work on its subject, and modern dentistry begins with its publication. Fauchard describes in fullest details the procedure of operative dentistry, in the filling of teeth and most especially in prosthesis, which is that part of dental surgery concerned with artificial dentures, bridge work and the like. He was especially novel in his method for correcting irregularities and was the first, for example, to describe the use of metal bands or braces for this purpose." (PMM 186). Very Good.

        Historiarum sui Temporis

      Fine engraved frontis. port. of the author, engraved vignettes on titles, & engraved headpieces. Titles printed in red & black. Seven vols. Large folio, cont. polished calf (a few corners a little worn or defective, a few head- or tail-caps a bit chipped), spines richly gilt, red & green morocco lettering pieces on spines. London: S. Buckley, 1733.The best critical edition, and the most complete, of de Thou's monumental and controversial History of his Own Times. De Thou (1553-1617), president of the Parlement de Paris and book collector, was deeply involved in the politics and religious wars of his time and negotiated the Edict of Nantes with the Protestants.This history was the work of his whole life. The materials for writing it were drawn from his rich library, which he established in the Rue de Poitevins in the year 1587, with the two brothers Pierre and Jacques Dupuy, as librarians. His object was to produce a purely scientific and unbiased work. With the publication of each part, de Thou was attacked by various factions within France and the second part, dealing with the first wars of religion (1560-72) was put on the Index librorum prohibitorum.This is the best critical edition, the material for which had been collected in France itself by Thomas Carte (d. 1754), while in exile. De Thou's history is a model of exact research, drawn from the best sources, and presented in a style both elegant and animated. Dr. Richard Mead (1673-1754), supported Carte's research and hired the printer Samuel Buckley to edit and print de Thou's work.The six and seventh volumes print a number of related and supplementary texts, important sources for the religious and literary history of the period.Nice fresh set.❧ Brunet, V, 841-"Cette édition, la plus belle, la plus complète et la la meilleure de cette histoire estimée, est aussi la seule qu'on recherche.".

        [FIVE ORIGINAL BERNARD PICART ENGRAVINGS OF JEWISH LIFE. FROM

      London, 1733. First English language edition. Bound in period red half-leather with gold lettering and tooling. 29 x 32 cm. In English. The present engravings portray The Search for the Leaven before the Passover Begins, The Feast of Tents or Tabernacles, the Acafoth or Seven Turns Round the Bier, A Funeral Ceremony of the Jews, The Redemption of the First Born, and The Circumcision of the Child on the Eighth Day. All prints are from the original "Ceremonies and Religious Customs of the Various Peoples of the World", or "Cérémonies et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde" (1723-1743) . This nine-volume folio work was originally published by Jean Frederic Bernard, a French language bookseller in Amsterdam, and lavishly illustrated by Bernard Picart, one of the most famous engravers of the time. As the title suggests, they sought to capture the ritual and ceremonial life of all the known religions of the world. Because Bernard chose to remain anonymous as author, the work has long been catalogued under the name of its engraver, Picart.

Jean-Jacques d'Ortous de Mairan (26 November 1678 – 20 February 1771) was a French geophysicist, astronomer and most notably, chronobiologist, was born in the town of Béziers on 26 November 1678. Over the course of his life, de Mairan was elected into numerous scientific societies and made key discoveries in a variety of fields including ancient texts and astronomy. His observations and experiments also inspired the beginning of what is now known as the study of biological circadian rhythms. In 1718, de Mairan was inducted into the Académie Royale des Sciences.The Cardinal and the Count of Maurepas selected Mairan to replace Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle as Associate Secretary of the Academie in 1743. De Mairan also served as the Academie's assistant director and later director intermittently between 1721 and 1760.Eventually, de Mairan was appointed editor of the Journal des sçavans, a science periodical, by Chancellor d'Aguesseau. Also, in 1735, de Mairan was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and in 1769, a Foreign Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences as well as to the Russian Academy (St. Petersburg) in 1718. De Mairan was also a member of the Royal Societies of London, Edinburgh, and Uppsala and the Institute of Bologna. With Jean Bouillet and Antoine Portalon, he founded his own scientific society in his hometown of Béziers around 1723. Mairan proposes that the aurora were vapors from the sun that entered the Earth's atmosphere. The treatise was published as Suite des Memoirs de l'Academie royal des Sciences for the year 1731.
