        [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. Lewine, p. 246. Graesse III, 354. Legacies of Genius 15. Moss II, 23-24. Dibdin II, 108. Lowndes II, 1113. Rothschild 1546-47. Blumenthal, Art of the Printed Book, p. 24 and plate 72. Ray, p. 3. Bland p. 216 and fig.186. Levarie, pp. 245-6. PMM 105. a high point of Augustan taste. ¶ John Pine (1690-1756) was the "best English engraver in the first half of the [eighteenth] century. 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]

        Splanchnologia five anatomica viscerum. Das ist: Gründliche Abhandlung von allen Eingeweiden die in den dreyen Cavitäten des menschlichen Körpers enthalten.

      Berlin, A. Haude, 1733, Kl.8, 7 Bl., 444 pp., 10 Bl. Register, mit 20 Kupfertafeln, Halbpergamenteinband im Stil der Zeit. 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.

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.

"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.".

      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.

NCBEL II, 1096. ESTC Citation Nos. T77575 and T77578. Mandeville's famous book, one of the most influential 18th-century contributions to social and economic thought, originated in a 433-line poem published in 1705, "The Grumbling Hive: or Knaves Turn'd Honest," which argued for free trade, prefiguring Adam Smith's laissez-faire economics. In defense of the numerous attacks against his poem, Mandeville elaborated it into a full-scale book, the 1714 first edition of Fable of the Bees, comprising ‘An enquiry into the origin of moral virtue’ and twenty ‘remarks’ annotating and explaining various lines in the verse fable. While claiming that every calling and trade has vices, he showed that these vile ingredients combine to produce a wholesome society, balancing individually unpleasant elements, as in the great, thriving metropolis of London itself: only if London were less flourishing would the streets be cleaner; their dirtiness was a necessary evil. The Fable attracted little attention, but in 1724 Mandeville published a second edition, enlarging the remarks (including, for example, a discussion of how thieves contribute to the public good) and adding "An essay on charity and charity schools" and "A search into the nature of society." Here offered is the fourth edition of 1725, along with the second edition of Part II (1733), "which is, in fact, an entirely new work. In six dialogues, Mandeville argues that The Fable is an entirely moral and religious work which has been grossly misrepresented, then goes on to develop an extensive ‘conjectural history’ of how human beings developed from savagery to civilization."

        Trattato della pittura di Leonardo da Vinci : nuovamente dato in luce, colla vita dell' istesso autore, scritta da Rafaelle du Fresne. Si sono giunti tre libri della Pittura, ed il trattato della Statua di Leon Battista Alberti, colla Vita del medesimo. E di nuovo ristampato, corretto ed a maggior perfezione condotto.

      A superb and rare example of the large paper issue of Ricciardo's 1733 edition of Leonardo's treatise on painting, the third and most complete edition in Italian. Leonardo's intention was to describe painting as a science, and he conceived his treatise in two sections: the first is theoretical, outlining the philosophical principles and ideals of painting with particular reference to perspective (linear, aerial and chromatic) and chiaroscuro; the second is practical, and serves as a guide to the young painter.  [Naples] : In Parigi, appresso Giacomo Langlois, stampatore ordinario del Re cristianissimo, al Monte S. Genovesa MDCLI [1651]. Ed in Napoli, nella stamperia di Francesco Ricciardo a spese di Niccola, e Vincenzo Rispoli, MDCCXXXIII [1733]. Folio, 41 cm, contemporary vellum over boards, spine with title in gilt; edges speckled red; title page in red and black, with copperplate engraved episcopal coat of arms of the dedicatee, Ercole d' Aragona, bishop of Perga, Vescovo and Mileto, initialled F.S. (Francesco Sesoni), discrete early collection wet stamp with monogram VAG surmounted by crown to lower margin (some mild staining at lower outer corner), pp [16, including title page], engraved portrait of Leonardo by Francesco Sesoni, 115, [8, including title page], engraved portrait of Leon Battista Alberti by Sesoni, 55; 75 copperplate engravings by Sesoni in the text, many half page; on large paper with wide margins; occasional browning; a fine, fully contemporary copy of the rare large paper issue. Leonardo da Vinci's notebook writings on the science of painting were gathered together by Francesco Melzi some time before 1542. The first printed editions, edited by Raphaël du Frésne under the title Trattato della pittura di Leonardo da Vinci, were printed in Italian and French by Jacques Langlois in Paris in 1651. Subsequent editions were published in French, in 1716 (Paris : Pierre-Francois Giffart); in English, in 1721 (London : Senex and Taylor); in Italian, in 1723 (Naples : Francesco Ricciardo); in German, in 1724 (Nuremberg : Christoph Weigel); and again in Italian, in 1733 (Naples : Francesco Ricciardo). Ricciardo's 1733 edition contains 20 more engravings than the 1651 edition, while his 1723 edition was unillustrated and did not include Alberti's treatise. Referring in 1821 to the example in his own collection, the art historian and bibliophile Count Leopoldo Cicognara (1767-1834) noted that his was 'uno de'pochissimi esemplari in carta grande' ('one of very few examples on large paper'). (Cicognara, Catalogo ragionato dei libri d'arte e d'antichita posseduti da lui, v. 1, 1821, no. 233). The large paper issue also differs from the ordinary paper issue in having a variant title page with an engraving by Franceso Sesoni of the coat of arms of the dedicatee, Ercole d' Ayerbe d' Aragona (1682-1735), bishop of Perga, Vescovo and Mileto; the title page engraving in the ordinary paper issue is the publisher's device of Niccolò Rispolo - a coat of arms with lion rampant, three stars and the motto Sub se omnia. In other respects, the title pages of the large and ordinary paper issues are identical. Examples of the large paper issue are held in the Newberry Library and Getty Research Institute; an accurate census of holdings worldwide would be difficult to obtain, but, based on Cicognara's estimation, the number would be very low. Leonardo's philosophy of painting is that it is reliant on the artist's penetrating observation of nature and of the understanding of physical phenomena through mathematics, geometry, anatomy and optics. The engravings illustrating the 1733 edition are by the Neapolitan Francesco Sesoni (or Sesone, 1705-1770), and display an exceptional level of craftsmanship. The first part of the work also includes a short biography of Leonardo by du Frésne, while the second part contains the treatise of Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472), the earliest Renaissance commentary on the aesthetic and scientific principles of architecture, painting and sculpture, and a work to which Leonardo's own philosopy and writings were indebted. The final two pages comprise Osservazione di Niccolo Pussino, sopra la pittura, remarks on painting by the Baroque artist Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665). Cicognara, 233; PMM, 28; Guerrini, Bibliotheca Leonardiana 1493-1989, v. I, 1990, p. 124-125. For a comprehensive comparative overview, see University of Virginia, Leonardo da Vinci and his treatise on painting.

        Letters Concerning the English Nation

      London: Printed for C. Davis and A. Lyon, 1733, 1733. First edition. Cf. Bengeso 1558; Sabin 100751 (noting Voltaire's letters on William Penn and the Pennsylvania Quakers). Fine copy.. 8vo, contemporary paneled calf (hinges skillfully repaired). The first appearance an early and important prose work by Voltaire, a series of epistlotary observations comparing British and French society, culture, science and philosophy. Written when he was living in England (1727-28), Voltaire's opinions shed a favorable light on British institutions and individuals, including Sir Isaac Newton. Voltaire tells an early version of the apple falling from the tree story that inspired Newton's theory of gravity. When Letters was published on the continent as Lettres Philosophiques (1734), it was condemned by French authorities and precipitated one of Voltaire's many conflicts with the crown.
