        The horse-hoing husbandry:

      or, an essay on the principles of tillage and vegetation. Wherein is shewn a method of introducing a sort of vineyard-culture into the corn-fields, in order to increase their product, and diminish the common expence; by the use of instruments described in cuts. By I.T."Tull first observed that pulverizing the soil without manuring it allowed improved aeration and freer entrance of water to the roots of plants, thereby increasing their nutriment. His most important invention, however, was the horse-drill, the construction of which was based on the mechanism of the church organ which he had studied as a young man when he was much interested in music. The drill, which he perfected in 1701, enabled him to sow seeds thinly in parallel rows and continuously in each row. Another of his inventions, the horse-hoe, was then used to improve the weeding and aeration of the adjacent soil. He made many other valuable observations on seed and the rate of sowing, and his inventions first made possible the reduction of manual labour on farms, while the use of his drill saved much seed. It was, in fact, the refusal of his labourers to introduce improved methods of sowing which led Tull to the invention of the drill by which he could obtain the desired results with less manual labour.At first his methods were widely criticized, but gradually they were accepted, and they laid the foundation for mechanizing and rationalizing the growth of crops.The first edition of this book was comparatively short. In 1733 a much enlarged edition was published, with illustrations."

        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 (8-1/2" x 7"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, blind fillets to joints, gilt tooling to board edges, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Some rubbing to extremities with wear to spine ends and corners, part of lettering piece lacking, partial crack in text block between front free endpaper and title page, minor worming to front endleaves, later armorial bookplate of the Earls of Macclesfield to front pastedown, small embossed Macclesfield stamp to head of title page. Moderate toning to text, somewhat heavier in a few places, occasional faint dampspotting, light browning and dampstaining (?) to title page. Early owner signature (Thomas Parker) to front free endpaper, 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. This copy belonged to Thomas Parker [1666-1732], 1st Earl of Macclesfield and Lord Chancellor from 1718 to 1725. Housed in Shirbirn Castle, the library of the Earls of Macclesfi [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Observations upon the Prophecies of Daniel, and the Apocalypse of St. John

      J. Darby and T. Browne, London 1733 - FIRST EDITION, AN EXTRAORDINARY COPY IN ORIGINAL BOARDS. "Especially interested in biblical prophecies, [Newton] studied everything he could on the topic, whether written in Greek, Aramaic, Latin, or Hebrew. He compiled long lists of various interpretations. The two primarily prophetic books of the Bible, namely Daniel and the Apocalypse (Revelation), especially interested him. Studying them he used the same analytical approach that he employed when examining nature. Developing a series of 15 'rules for interpreting the words and language in Scripture,' he regarded the prophecies in the two different books as a foretelling of world history. Many current interpretations of these biblical books still echo those of Newton's. Several years after his death his studies in this area were published as Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John" (Roth, Science Discovers God). London: J. Darby and T. Browne, 1733. Quarto (215 x 270 mm), original boards sympathetically rebacked with paper spine and paper label; uncut. Custom box. Neat early owner signature. Handsome early marginal annotations on three pages. Scattered light foxing (mostly to beginning and end of text); text generally exceptionally clean. An extremely large, wide-margined copy. Scarce in original boards. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

London: John Pine, 1733 [-1737]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, first issue, with "post est" in medallion on page 108, vol. II. A magnificent copy of John Pine's Horace, "the last word in ultra-elegance as it was then conceived" (McMurtrie), "a tour-de-force with the entire text and all the illustrations engraved on plates. The edition is curiously un-English, with its sharp, contrasting letters, and with open spacing ahead of its time; an octavo which foreshadowed much of what lay directly ahead" (Blumenthal, Art of the Printed Book). Edwin Wolf II wrote: "[Pine's] achievement is an unparalleled marriage of content and illustration." John Pine (1690-1756) began his career as a goldsmith and was a member of the Goldsmiths' Company. He was also a Freeman of the City of London, an official of the Royal Mint, an Engraver of His Majesty's Signet and Seals, and, importantly, a freemason. Pine's books were always expensive publications, and he made wise use of pre-publication subscriptions, which not only defrayed printing costs but also became a form of advertisement and endorsement. Certainly a large percent of the subscribers were connected in some way to Pine's membership in the fraternal organization of freemasons. The list of subscribers for his Horace reads like a directory of English and European luminaries: political, aristocratic, social and intellectual. Included are: the Prince of Wales, the Prince of Orange, a large gathering of Marquis, Princes, Dukes, Earls, etc., and such literary and artistic figures as: Alexander Pope, Lord Burlington, Colley Cibber, James Gibbs (the architect), George Frideric Handel, Edmond Halley and, of course, Pine's old friend William Hogarth. The subscribers for the second volume, published four years later in 1737, offers testament to Pine's ascendant reputation, as new subscribers include: George II, the Holy Roman Emperor, the King and Queen of Spain, Horace Walpole, Richard Sheridan, Jonathan Swift, Edward Harley and Christiaan Huyghens among many others.

        STAMPA L'INDOVINO.

      Senza indicazione di luogo, stampatore e data, secolo XVIII (mm 380 x 289 ca.)Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame; in lastra, sotto la parte figurata, a sinistra e a destra indicazione degli artisti, più in basso quartina di endecasillabi a commento dell'immagine, dall'incipit "Non son già un ignorante Ciarlatano...". L'opera, di pregevole esecuzione e assai interessante per il soggetto, è una scena di genere raffigurante un indovino, sul suo palco, circondato dagli strumenti del mestiere, in atto di leggere la mano a una ragazza. L'anonimo incisore dalla sigla "A. S.", probabilmente di scuola veneta, potrebbe forse essere identificabile con Antonio Sandi (1733 - 1817), apprezzato incisore riproduttore di vedute ma anche di scene di costume. Il dipinto del veneto Francesco Maggiotto fu riprodotto a bulino e acquaforte anche da Giovanni Volpato, con il titolo "L'astrologo" e senza la quartina di versi. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo, rifilato alla battuta, dalla contenuta ossidazione.

        Observations upon the prophecies of Daniel, and the Apocalypse of St. John. In two parts

      Dublin: Pr. by S. Powell, for Goerge Risch, George Ewing, and William Smith 8vo (20 cm; 7.75"). iv, [4], 320 pp.. 1733 First edition printed in Ireland. In addition to being a physicist, mathematician, and natural philosopher, Sir Isaac Newton was something of a Biblical scholar as well, as shown by the present exegesis on apocalyptic texts. His analysis generally reads as being practical in nature — as the New Catholic Encyclopedia (X, 428) says, "Newton's writings on apocalyptical prophecies were not mystical or millenarian in any sense, but more exercises in deciphering cryptograms." They comport with our sense of him as someone who believed in the scientific method! => Printed with a two-page, small-type list of the subscribers to this Irish edition, some entries noting a profession or a locality. Recent full brown calf, Cambridge style binding: Round spine, raised bands accented with single gilt rules above and below each, gilt center device in five spine compartments; black spine label, gilt. Covers tooled in blind with center compartment with corner devices; new endpapers. Old rubber-stamp along inner margin of title, with another to lower margin of dedication page and an inked line of presentation to its gutter; age-toning and stray stains. A good+ copy of the uncommon Dublin edition.

Einband fleckig, etwas bestossen. Papier mäßig gebräunt, stellenweise etwas fleckig, insgesamt jedoch sauber.. ADB VI, 555 f. - Wichtiges Quellenwerk zur Geschichte des Nordgaus und speziell zu der des Hochstifts Eichstädt, verfasst von dem Historiker Johann Heinrich von Falckenstein (1686-1760). "Dieser trat als wirklicher Hofrath und Kammerjunker in die Dienste des Fürstbischofs Anton I. von Eichstädt ... In diesem seinem neuen Amte erhielt er eine Mission, die mehr noch seinen Neigungen als seinen Fähigkeiten entsprach, nämlich den Auftrag, eine Geschichte des Hochstiftes Eichstädt abzufassen. Es wurden ihm zu diesem Zwecke Archive und Registraturen geöffnet. Der Tod des Fürstbischofs Anton I. (1725) erschütterte aber aus unbekannten Gründen Falkenstein's Stellung; er trat daher im Jahr 1730 als Hofrath in die Dienste des Markgrafen Wilhelm Friedrich von Ansbach ... Als das vergleichungsweise wichtigste Werk dürfen immerhin seine sogenannte 'Antiquitates Nordgavienses', das heißt die Eichstädtische Geschichte bezeichnet werden; sie bezeugt zugleich den Unmuth, in welchem Falckenstein von Eichstädt geschieden, und hat zu lebhaften Recriminationen und Erwiderungen Veranlassung gegeben" (ADB). 1743 erschien ein dritter, schließlich 1788 ein Urkundenband. Mit der meist fehlenden großen Faltkarte: "Eigentliche Verzeichnung der Gegend und Prospecten der Hochfürstl. Bischöffl. Haupt u. Residentz Stadt Aichstaedt". Diese zeigt eine Gesamtansicht, umgeben von Ansichten des Doms und Gerichtshofs, darüber eine große Vogelschaukarte von Eichstätt mit der Umgebung (49 x 57 cm). Gutes Exemplar.

        Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel, and the Apocalypse of St. John. In Two Parts

      London: Printed By J. Darby and T. Browne, 1733. vi, [2], 323pp, [1]. Recent antique-style panelled calf, contrasting red morocco title label, gilt. A fine copy. Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727), English natural philosopher and mathematician. After groundbreaking discoveries in differential calculus, mechanics and optics, Newton switched the focus of his efforts to alchemy and theology as early as the 1670s, the latter perhaps as a result of Trinity College statutes which required all fellows be ordained as Anglican ministers. Following extensive study of the Bible and works of the early Fathers, he began to question the orthodox Trinitarianism; his study and interpretation of the prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation instead led him towards Arianism. This posthumous publication does not, however, contain the radical and almost heretical views of his youth apparent in his early manuscripts, but instead an exposition of the same prophecies without clear direction or theological standpoint - a product of old-age, realization of the importance of orthodoxy (and thus the danger of Arianism) to his academic career, and of editing by his nephew Benjamin Smith. Babson 222. ESTC T41883. Wallis 328.. First Edition. Quarto.

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 Ecole de medecine wohnenden und von derselben beschäftigten Barbier-Chirurgen, besuchte zugleich die Vorlesungen in jener Schule; es waren der Anatom Winslow, im Hotel-Dieu Mery 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 "Traite des operations 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 Ecole de medecine und wurde 1728 zum königlichen Demonstrator, anfänglich der Materia medica, dann der Operationen bei der Ecole 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.

        The Desperadoes; an heroick History. Translated from the Italian of the celebrated Marini (the Original having passed ten Editions.) Containing a Series of the most surprizing Adventures of the Princes Formidaur and Florian In four Books. Embellish'd with eight excellent Copper-Plates.

      London: Printed by W. R. and sold by T. Asltey J. Isted and T. Worrall 1733. - 8vo., pp. [2], iv, [2], 5-284; with a frontispiece and seven other engraved plates; a few small stains, slightly shaken, in contemporary half calf and marbled boards, rubbed and scraped; early gift inscription to title-page 'Carolus a Carolo d'Avenant?.First and only edition in English of Le gare de' disperati (1644), the second of three romances by Marini (1596-1668). Inevitably, 'It was necessary to omit many Things that were contrary to our Morals; to Decency, and to the Purity of the English Tongue '. But the general scheme of events is the same as the original, and is outlined on the title-page: 'A Series of the most surprizing Adventures of the Princes Formidaur and Florian; the former being in love with Zelinda, whom he takes to be his own Sister; and the latter having married Fidalme, who he supposes to be his father's Daughter by a second Wife, and afterwards kills in Disguise in single Combat. With a Relation of the various amazing Accidents, and Misfortunes, which happen thereon, until the Whole concludes with making them all happy, by a most extraordinary and uncommon Revolution.'Marini's biography remains vague, but he was the author of several successful romances, the first being Calloandro (1640-1), written under a complicated collection of pseudonyms. Le gare de' disperati was the only work by him to be translated into English. ESTC lists seven copies: BL, Cambridge, National Library of Ireland; Columbia, Harvard, UCLA, and University of Pennsyl vania.

        A View of the Real Power of the Pope, and Of the Power of the Priesthood over the Laity

      London: Printed in the Year, 1733. With an Account how they use it. By T. H. Esq; Octavo (196 × 119 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, raised bands, unlettered. Early ownership inscriptions of Benjamin Coleman, 1787, and Mary Coleman to front endpapers. Old and inoffensive ink stain running down the rear joint with a couple of ink spots to top edge not affecting the text, a handsome copy in excellent condition, clean and fresh. First edition. An interesting example of the apparently widespread attitude of ordinary English Catholics at this time, exhibiting considerable anti-clericalism and impatience bordering on disgust with papal temporal power. The work includes one chapter rich with thinly disguised personal details settling the author's score with various English priests. Thomas Hawkins (c. 1675?-1766), of Nash Court, Boughton under Blean, Kent, was a member of a notable English Catholic family, numbering the poet and translator Sir Thomas Hawkins (bap. 1575, d. 1640?) among his forebears. His father, also Thomas, died in 1678, and after 1688 the family was plundered and forced into exile in France, where Hawkins took the opportunity to study at the University of Paris. The second part of the book consists of a translation of the prefatory discourses of Claude Fleury's Histoire ecclésiastique (1691).

        An Enquiry into the Original of Moral Virtue. Wherein is shown, (Against the Author of the Fable of the Bees, &c.) That Virtue is founded in the Nature of Things, is unalterable, and eternal, and the great Means of private and publick Happiness. With Some Reflections on a late Book, intitled, An Enquiry into the Original of our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue.

      Edinburgh Printed for Gavin Hamilton by R. Fleming and Company 1733 - 8vo, 194 x 116 mms., pp. [iv], xxxii [xxxiii - lv Contents, lvi blank], 546 [547 errata, 548 blank], recent quarter roan, marbled boards; a rather drab binding, but the text is clean. Campbell (1691 -1756) wrote this work in the early 1720s and entrusted its publication to Alexander Innes (c. 1675 - 1742), who promptly published the book under his own name in 1728, in a spectacular piece of literary thievery. To make matters worse, Innes impudently inserted marginal notes explaining the text and frequently misinterpreted Campbell's views. Campbell drew attention to this piracy in his Discourse proving that the Apostles were no Enthusiasts (1730), with a dignified, but pointed note on the verso of the title-page saying that he would soon be publishing an edition of the work "with considerable Additions and Amendments, leaving out the Doctor's Introduction." Campbell's Christian charity was almost as spectacular as Innes' impertinence, since he generously claimed in the Preface, when the book was published in 1733, that "tis of no Consequence to the Publick, by whose Labour the following Sheets were compos'd. If they are capable of serving any good End, this is all that can be judg'd valuable in the Performances." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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

      London: 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.

        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.

        HISTORY OF THE RENOWNED DON QUIXOTE DE LA MANCHA.translated by several hands: and published by Peter Motteux.

      London For John Knapton, R. Knaplock, J. Sprint, D. Midwinter, J. Tonson [et al] 1733 - 4 volumes. An early printing, "Carefully Revised and Compared with the Best Edition of the Original at Madrid By Mr. Ozell". "Adorn’d with New Sculptures", comprised of 15 fine woodcut plates and woodcut head-and-tale-pieces, and engraved initials. 12mo, beautifully bound in full polished calf and signed by Bayntun of Bath, the spines with gilt ruled raised bands separating compartments elaborately decorated with fully tooled panels incorporating central gilt devices and with red morocco labels lettered in gilt. [xxi], 311; [vi], 304; xii, 312; 359 pp. A superb set in especially fine condition. Very handsome and beautifully preserved. A WONDERFUL PERIOD AND EARLY EDITION IN ENGLISH OF CERVANTES GREAT CLASSIC. This is the best of Motteaux’s editions, the most faithful to the Spanish original yet retaining the flow and style of his earlier English translations. Motteaux’s translation was also chosen for English illustrated editions by Gustave Dore and Salvador Dali. The engraved illustrations used in this edition are both charming and evocative. They add tremendously to the appeal of this printing. DON QUIXOTE ranks among the greatest literary works of Western Civilization. "What had begun as a simple satire on the tedious chivalric romances of the time broadened into a sweeping panorama of Spanish society. It was for this, the liveliness, and the gibes at the famous, which one it instant fame. Its larger claims, the subdued pathos, its universal humanity, were slower to be appreciated. But within months Don Quixote and Sancho Panza had become legendary.Don Quixote is one of those universal works which are read by all ages at all times, and there are very few who have not at one time or another felt themselves to be Don Quixote confronting the windmills." (PMM). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
