        Opere fisico-mediche stampate e manoscritte. raccolte da Antonio suo Figliuolo, corredate d'una Prefazione.

      - Venezia, S. Coleti, 1733. 3 volumes. Folio (355 x 225mm). pp. (2), lxxxii, 469; (4), 551; (4), 676, with 92 engraved plates, 3 engraved title-vignettes, 2 engraved plates of portraits one of Vallisnieri and the other one of Contessa Celia Grilla-Borromea, to whom one of the works is dedicated and some engravings in the text. Contemporary half calf, a bit rubbed (frontcover hinge of first volume splitting). First edition of Vallisnieri's collected works. It was edited by his son Antonio and contains all his famous contributions on zoology, entomology, medicine, geology and natural history. Antonio Vallisnieri (1666-1730) was a pupil of Malpighi at Bologna. "In comparison with contemporary scientific thought, Vallisnieri's work has a very modern character - as Redi had already done - the way opened by Galileo (whom he quotes only twice) and Francis Bacon (whom he also quotes) he rejected Scholastic knowledge and trusted solely in direct observation and in experiment. Vallisnieri was thus one of the first modern naturalist to have a clear awareness of the character of scientific phenomena" (DSB). Vallisinieri did a.o. extensive research on the reproductive system of men and animals, he complemented to Redi's demonstration of the fallacy of the hypothesis of spontaneous generation and was a forerunner of evolutionary concepts.

        Carlo Antonio Pilati.

      [Anni ’20-’30]. - Carlo Antonio Pilati nacque il 28 dicembre 1733 a Tassullo in Val di Non. Di nobile famiglia. A sette anni venne mandato a Salisburgo dallo zio cancelliere del Principe Vescovo, dove frequentò il ginnasio e successivamente l’università. A Salisburgo studia lettere e filosofia ma conclude gli studi a Lipsia dove si interessa alla legge e alla storia. Nel 1752 a soli 19 anni venne incaricato di giudice per tutto il distretto delle Valli di Sole e di Non. Viaggia molto, prima in Italia e successivamente in Germania, Danimarca, Olanda e Francia. Nel 1760 viene nominato professore presso il Liceo leale di Trento, ed oltre insegnare esercita pure l’avvocatura. In questo periodo pubblica la sua prima opera legale "Di una riforma d’Italia ossia dei mezzi di riformare i più cattivi costumi e le perniciose leggi d’Italia", in cui condannò il malcostume italiano ascrivendolo a conseguenza della Controriforma. Venne per questo condannato dall’inquisizione e fu quindi costretto a vagare per l’Europa. Solo nel 1770 venne liberato dal bando. Morì il 27 ottobre 1802. Il disegno è pubblicato nell’opera dell’artista: "PRONER, Luigi. Medaglioni di illustri trentini in un popolare compendio di storia patria. Temi, Trento. 1958, p. 183", alla quale si rimanda per maggiori informazioni. Formato: Disegno originale a china di forma circolare con diametro di 8 cm con titolo manoscritto al piede. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.

        The State Dunces. Inscribed to Mr. Pope.

      London: Printed for W. Dickenson in Witch-Street. 1733. First Edition Folio, [-]1, B-E2, F1, [ii], 18 pp, disbound.Ascertained by Foxon (q.v.) to be the first of five editions dated 1733. "Whitehead's first notable satire, The State Dunces (June 1733), in heroic couplets, was inscribed to Pope and indebted to The Dunciad (1728-9), but in so far as Whitehead raises his sights to take in bishops, politicians, and, above all, Walpole, he anticipates Pope's New Dunciad (1742). Robert Dodsley bought the copyright for 10 guineas, prompting Johnson, who had a low opinion of Whitehead, to insist on no less for his London (1738)." -- ODNB

        The Argument of the Lord Keeper Sommers, On His Giving Judgment.

      1733 - A Low Point in Somers's Career Somers, John, Baron [1651-1716]. The Argument of the Lord Keeper Sommers, On His Giving Judgment in the Bankers Case: Deliver'd in the Exchequer-Chamber, June 23, 1696. [London]: Printed by E. and R. Nutt, and R. Gosling, 1733. [ii], 128 pp. Quarto (8" x 7"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent marbled boards, printed paper title label to spine. Soiling to title page and verso of final leaf, light foxing to a few leaves. Early shelf label to head of title page, annotations to two leaves, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition and the only complete account. This case was an unfortunate moment in Somers's otherwise brilliant career. (He was an important Whig jurist, Lord Chancellor during the reigns of William & and Mary and Queen Anne and framer of the English Bill of Rights). "In the most important case which came before him in the exchequer chamber, that of the bankers who had recovered judgment in the court of exchequer for arrears of interest due to them as assignees of certain perpetual annuities charged by Charles II upon the hereditary excise as security for advances, he expended some hundreds of pounds and an immense amount of thought and research, with no better result than to defeat an intrinsically just claim, on the technical ground that it was not cognisable in the court of exchequer, but only by petition of right. No judgment so elaborate had ever been delivered in Westminster Hall as that by which, in November 1696, he reversed the decision of the court of exchequer.": (DNB). This decision was reversed by the House of Lords three years later. Despite Somers's importance, few accounts of his legal work exist today; it is known mostly through summaries.

Among the clinical illustrations Cheyne included his own case, which he cured by purges, a milk and vegetable diet and the study of religious writings. Cheyne's work inspired an interest in England in exploring the metaphysical relationship between mind and body. Howells, p. 190. Hunter & Macalpine, pp. 351-354. [Attributes: First Edition]

OCLC: Libraries worldwide that own item: 4. Magna Bibliotheca Anglo-Judaica / A bibliographical Guide to Anglo-Jewish History. . SHERLOCK, Thomas, anglikanischer Theologe u. Bischof * 1678 in London, + 1761 in London. - S. war der Sohn von William S., Dean of St. Paul's in London, der am Ende d. 17. Jh.s ein bekannter englischer Theologe war. Er erhielt seine Schulbildung in Eton, wo er mit dem spateren liberalen Premierminister Robert Walpole Freundschaft schloss. Danach besuchte er d. Catherine Hall in Cambridge u. wurde Fellow seines Colleges. 1714 wurde er Master u. gleichzeitig Vizekanzler d. Universit?t. Seine kirchliche Laufbahn begann er 1715 mit dem Amt d. Dean v. Chicester. 1719 wurde er Domherr in Norwich. Im Jahre 1728 wurde er Bischof im walisischen Bangor und 1734 in Salisbury. Spater wurden ihm u. a. die Erzbist?mer von York (1743) u. vielleicht auch Canterbury (1747?) angeboten, d. er ablehnte. 1748 nahm er eine Berufung als Bischof v. London an und ?bte dieses Amt bis zu seinem Tode aus. Er war einer d. einflu?reichsten anglikanischen Theologen d. 18. Jh.s u. galt als gro?e St?tze d. K?nigshauses. Das hinderte ihn jedoch nicht, in d. Bangorian controversy mit dem G?nstling der Krone, Benjamin Hoadley, um Gestalt u. Verst?ndnis d. Kirche zu streiten. Ein Gro?teil d. Schriften S. geh?rt in d. Zusammenhang dieses Streites. Er durchzieht auch zahlreiche Predigten S.s, wobei er sich als Verfechter einer beschr?nkten kirchlichen Selbst?ndigkeit gegen?ber dem Staat, profilierte. Mehrfach fiel er wegen dieser Ansicht in Ungnade. - Seine theologische Hauptarbeit galt d. Bek?mpfung d. Deismus, d. in England eine gro?e Zahl u. auch einflu?reiche Vertreter hatte. Auf d. zentrale Frage nach der Auferstehung Jesu konzentrierte sich sein Hauptwerk "The Tryal of the Witnesses of the Resurrection of Jesus" von 1729. Dort versuchte er d. Wahrheit der Auferstehung damit zu beweisen, d. er d. Auferstehungszeugen nach Art d. britischen Gerichtsverhandlung f?r d. Wahrheit der Tatsache aussagen lie? Diese Schrift wurde ungemein popul?r u. erlebte zahlreiche Auflagen. Von deistischer Seite sind zahlreiche Gegenschriften verfa?t worden, deren bedeutenste von Voltaires Lehrer, Peter Annet, stammt. Insgesamt war S. weniger ein selbst?ndiger Denker, als vielmehr ein apologetischer Vertreter anglikanischer Theologie, d. die Kirche in beschr?nktem Rahmen aus d. Vormundschaft d. Staates l?sen wollte. Werke: A Sermon preached before the Queen, Jan. 31 1703, beeing the anniversary of the martyrdome of King Charles I, London 1704; The Measures of Christian Charity and their rewards, as stated by Bishop S. and their rewards, (1710), Daventry 1851; A Sermon preach'd before the Sons of the Clergy Dec. 5.

Seconde partie, où l'on fait voir la nécessité d'examiner les corps des femmes mortes sans accoucher, ¿ Traduite du latin¿ augmentée de reflexions sur les points les plus interessants par Jacques Jean Bruhier d¿Ablaincourt.

      P.Fr. Giffart, Paris 1733 - In-4, XXXIX, (1), 431, (3) pp., 37 planches h.t. (dont 1 dépl.), plein veau de l'époque, coiffe supérieure manquante, coins émoussés, bas du plat inférieur rongé sur 2 cm de large et 8 mm de hauteur, 5 feuillets roussis, sinon intérieur en très bon état. Première édition de la traduction française, très rare, rééditée l'année suivante, puis en 1739. L'exemplaire est bien complet du feuillet d'errata. Cet ouvrage fut publié à Leyde, en latin (première partie en 1701 et deuxième partie en 1724) et en hollandais (première partie seule, en 1701 : Garrison & Morton, 6253). Cette édition française a été considérée comme la meilleure, toutes langues confondues, et c'est celle qui a eu le plus d'influence en Europe (cf. Cutter & Viets). L'édition anglaise, de qualité inférieure, ne comporte que la première partie du texte. Cette traduction française est excellente ; Bruhier d'Ablaincourt y a ajouté une préface et quelques remarques ; ce texte, avec les additions du traducteur, fut même retraduit en hollandais en 1746. Les planches gravées sur cuivre sont remarquables. Celles-ci, au nombre de 37, représentent en 40 figures les positions f¿tales et l'arsenal obstétrical. Deventer décrit précisément les déformations du bassin et leurs conséquences. Hendrik van Deventer (1651-1724), célèbre accoucheur, est né en Hollande, et prit le nom de sa ville natale. cf. Garrison & Morton, 6253 (éd. hollandaise); Siebold, T. II, pp. 200-208 "oeuvre ordonnée d'une manière rigoureusement scientifique"; Cutter & Viets, p. 180 : « The two parts (of the edition in Latin) were translated into French by Jean-Jacques Bruhier d'Ablaincourt, with the plates redrawn by Mathey, and published in Paris in 1733. It was reset by another printer, with the same figures, in 1734. Both editions were superior to the original latin editions of 1701 and 1724. The translation was excellent and it was these French editions that made van Deventer's name known throughout Europe. The English edition, published in London in 1716, contains only the first part of the text. The plates, by Gucht, are inferior to those found in the original Latin edition or in the superior French edition." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The case of the planters of tobacco in virginia...a vindication of the said representation.

      J Roberts 1733 Contemporary paper - backed marbled boards. From the Astor Library and New York Public with a duplicate release stamp, and the library of Gordon Jones, M.D., with his bookplate. First edition. The tobacco planters of Virginia in the British Colonies in America became outraged by the hardships imposed upon them by acts of British Parliament. The vast majority of American tobacco was exported to England, and thus planters in the Colonies were dependant for their survival upon payment by tobacco merchants in Great Britain. Fraud and corruption by those tobacco merchants were rampant; higher duties were imposed regularly, and bonds and security had to be paid prior to export. Planters were warned not to trust the merchants and in addition to other acts of protest, the representatives of the planters in Virginia proposed keeping the tobacco in a warehouse under lock and key.
