      Paris, G. Cavelier, 1733. - Traduit du Latin par J. J. Bruhier d'Ablaincourt. 2 Tle. in 1 Bd. 4°. 37 Kupfertaf., XXXIX, 368 S. - S. (369)-431. Lederband der Zeit mit Rückenschild und Rückenvergoldung (etwas fleckig und berieben). Erste französische Ausgabe eines der wichtigsten Werke der Geburtshilfe. - Blake 118; Waller 2421 und Wellcome II, 460 (beide 2. französ.

A more elaborate Latin edition appeared in 1701, and this French translation was made from it' (Heirs of Hippocrates 678 zur Ausg. Paris 1734). - Deventers vorliegendes Hauptwerk 'mit seinen guten Abbildungen läßt den Fortschritt besonders deutlich erkennen. Namentlich erscheint die Diagnostik der abnormalen Kindeslagen bei ihm erheblich verfeinert; nicht minder seine Technik der geburtshilflichen Eingriffe, bei denen er dem manuellen Verfahren gegenüber dem instrumentellen bis zur äußersten Grenze den Vorzug gab. Das letztere erhielt eine seiner wichtigsten Bereicherungen durch eine Erfindung, die sich auf die Dauer als eine der wirksamsten und segensreichsten in der Geburtshilfe überhaupt erwies: die Geburtszange' (Meyer-Steineg/Sudhoff 379 ff.). - Schönes, breitrandiges Exemplar.

        Le naturalisme des convulsions dans les maladies de l'épidémie convulsionnaire. Le mélange dans les convulsions confondu par le naturalisme. Le naturalisme des convulsions démontré par la physique, par l'histoire naturelle & par les événements de cette oeuvre.

      Soleure, Andreas Gymnicus, 1733. - 3 parties en 1 volume in-12, 198, 79, 102 pp., reliure plein veau raciné de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés, tranches rouges, ex-libris gravé (Emmanuel Jeanbernat Barthelemy de Ferrari Doria), rousseurs éparses, bon exemplaire. Ouvrage publié anonymement par Hecquet, bien complet des 3 parties, "réunion rare" (Dorbon) L'auteur, à propos des convulsionnaires de Saint Médard, est le premier à soutenir que ces convulsions relèvent d'une maladie contagieuse ou épidémique (et non pas de phénomènes surnaturels ou démoniaques) et qu'elles sont donc du ressort de la médecine et non de la théologie. Il établit un lien entre ces convulsions et l'épilepsie. Il rapproche de ces convulsionnaires de Saint Médard les possédées de Loudun, les fanatiques des Cévennes, . Philippe Hecquet (1661-1737), né à Abbevile, étudia la théologie puis la médecine. Il fut un janséniste austère. Il devint doyen de la Faculté de médecine de Paris.

        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.

Grolier English 43.The four epistles of the Essay on Man were published successively on February 20, March 29, May 8, 1733 and finally on January 24, 1734. The first editions of the first three Epistles appear in variant states, the priority of which is not always clear, but none of which are of significance textually (except Griffith's issue "I" of Epistle I, which Pope revised). The 'friend' to whom the Epistles were addressed was Henry St. John, Lord Bolingbroke. But this poem was not simply a statement of Bolingbroke's deistic philosophy. It has been referred to as 'a public, social and classical poem', a poem that takes into account Newton's impersonal universe but also interweaves a 'tissue of images from older and more human conceptions' (M. Mack, Works, Vol. III) and which examines the human condition against Miltonic, cosmic bacground. Although Pope's perspective is well above our everyday life, and he does not hide his wide knowledge, the work is suggestive, dramatic, exciting, and sometimes even comfortably concrete: "Each beast, each insect, happy in its own: / Is Heaven unkind to Man, and Man alone?"Eighteenth-century sociability and a Roman Catholic sense of corporateness are a key part of Pope's philosophical outlook, while his favored metaphor of serenity-from-discord can be traced back to Heraclitus. In Mack's view, the "poem is able to transcend its origins and establish contact with the collective religious and moral past. Between Paradise Lost and The Prelude, there is no other English poem of which this can be said" (Ibid., p. lxxii).Pope died on May 30, 1744. He left his property to Martha Blount. With the growth of Romanticism Pope's poetry was increasingly seen as outdated and the 'Age of Pope' ended. It was not until 1930s when serious attempt was made to rediscover the poet's work.While there is some argument as to the first issue of the first part, both camps (Griffith and Wise) are here represented with excellent examples. A wonderful, and truly complete compilation of all relevant issues of one of the great poems in the English language.Ashley IV, p. 38. Foxon P822. Griffith 304. Rothschild 1613.HBS 65395.$6,500

        De Palingenesia veterum seu Metempsychosi sic dicta Pythagorica Libri III. Quibus num Pythagoras Animarum humanarum de corpore uno in aliud corpus crassum vel Hominis vel Bruti Atque hinc et Carnibus et Fabis abstinuisse

      Amsterdam, Henricum Vieroot, 1733. - in-4. 16ff. 514pp. 14ff. Plein parchemin, dos lisse avec titre doré (Reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage consacré aux doctrines sur la tranmigration des âmes ou métempsychose, élaborées par les Egyptiens, les Druides, les Perses, les Indous et surtout par les Grecs à travers les thèses et l'enseignement du philosophe et matématicien Pythagore. Willem van Irhoven (1698-1760), né à Kessel, étudia à Leyde et devint professeur à Utrecht. il décrit les croyances complexes de l'Ecole de Pythagore où se mêlaient les dogmes orphiques, les traditions orientales et le sabéisme chaldéen. Il traite également du régime alimentaire végétarien ou "diète pythagoricienne" pratiqué par l'école l'Ecole, qui excluait la consommation de viande. Curieux exemplaire dont une page de garde comporte, collée, une grande étiquette imprimée contenant un texte redigé en latin établissant un code pour le bon usage des livres empruntés. Elle a été imprimée vers le milieu du XVIIIs. mesure 15 cm. X 10cm., et porte le titre suivant : "Leges, voluminas ex Bibliotheca nostra commodato accepta, lecturis. Secundum auspicia lata Lictor Lege agito in Legirupionem. Mas vel Foemina fuas, hac tibi lege, Codicis istius usum, non interdicimus". Ce titre est suivi de 15 commandements adressés au lecteur ayant emprunté le livre, et d'où l'humour n'est parfois pas absent. Voici la traduction de quelques unes d'entre elles : n'emporte pas le livre comme si c'était une propriété; ne l'offense pas avec des annotations; ne le déchire ni ne le perfore, ce n'est pas un ennemi; ne le froisse pas; ne le prête pas, ouvertement ou en cachette; éloigne-le de l'eau, de l'huile, du feu, de la saleté; fais fuir les petits voleurs, la souris, la mite, la mouche; une fois lu ne consens pas qu'il reste longtemps avec toi; rends-le en bon état, comme tu l'as pris, etc. A la fin du texte se trouve indiqué le nom du propriétaire du volume : Thomas Vargas Macciucca, duc et chevalier de l'Ordre de Malte. L'idée originale de ces exhortations est due au savant espagnol Manuel Marti (Oropesa, 1663 - Alicante, 1737), bibliothécaire du duc de Medinaceli et bibliophile. Dans une lettre datée de 1723 adressée à son ami l'érudit Mayans y Ciscar, Marti lui communiquait le texte qu'il avait conçu "ad librorum conservationem" et que la présente étiquette reproduit fidèlement avec, comme seule différence, le nom de Thomas Vargas Macciucca remplaçant celui de Manuel Marti. Cette rarissime étiquette tend à prouver que l'initiative de Manuel Marti fut adoptée par certains collectionneurs ou bibliothécaires de son temps, qui reprirent a leur compte son texte en le faisant simplement suivre de leur propre nom. Bel exemplaire. Caillet, 5418: "Un des livres les plus documentés sur la Metempsychose". Sur l'étiquette apposée au début du volume, cf. "Correspondencia de Don Gregorio Mayans con Don Manuel Marti, Dean de Alicante, Parte I, Carta n. 31" in: Gregorio Mayans Epistolario, volumen III). [Attributes: First Edition]

        On poetry, a rapsody

      Dublin, reprinted at London, 1733. Folio, 28 pp., three minute wormholes; completely unbound and uncut, stitched as issued, just fraying at spine; boxed. First edition, a fine unsophisticated copy of Swift's own favourite among his poems. The imprint's mention of an earlier Dublin edition is baloney. A Dublin edition did actually appear the following year (the printers were arrested), as did a second London edition. Swift's witty and laconic description of the best way to develop a poetic style whilst simultaneously escaping the ire of 'learn'd Commentators' recommends the dogged imitation of stale convention and fashion, preferably allied with the use of slander hidden behind pseudonyms and initials. His metaphor is a classic of bathos:'So Geographers in Afric-Maps/ With Savage-Pictures fill their Gaps;/ And o'er uninhabitable Downs/ Place Elephants for want of Towns'. When all else fails, he recommends becoming a critic, famously making the observation, that a 'Flea':'Hath smaller Fleas that on him prey,/ And these have smaller Fleas to bite 'em,/ And so proceed ad infinitum'.

        Les Avantures de Monsieur Robert Chevalier, dit de Beauchene

      Amsterdam: Aux Depens de la ..., 1733. Two volumes in one, duodecimo, five plates, titles printed in red and black with engraved vignettes; slight waterstaining affecting only the margins, occasional ms. marginalia in a neat early hand, a good copy in later half red morocco, head of spine restored. Colourful tale of a Canadian corsair. An attractive copy of the second French edition of this important imaginary voyage and Canadian adventure based on the exploits of Robert Chevalier Beauchêne. Le Sage (1668-1747) was a successful playwright and novelist, now chiefly remembered as the author of the picaresque novel Gil Blas. The novel claims to be derived from notes sent to Le Sage by Beauchêne's widow, and is a heady confection of piratical life set in the wilds of eighteenth-century Canada. Beauchêne is an Indian scout turned coast-prowling pirate, and the narrative recalls his bloodthirsty exploits in duels and ship-boardings, as well as his recollections of being sold into slavery in New England. It is difficult to sort the fact from the fiction in this rollicking tale - the Canadian Encyclopedia comments that Le Sage's work has 'many exaggerations and inaccuracies' - but it is a vivid account, concluding with Beauchêne's return to France with his plundered loot, where he dies in a tavern brawl in Tours.

        An Essay on Man. In Epistles to a Friend

      London: J. Wilford, 1733 -, 1734. Four volumes in one, small folio; a few upper margins cut close touching one or two page numerals; a good set in crushed red-brown morocco gilt by Morrell. Pope's great poem. A beautifully bound edition of one of the greatest long poems in the English language. Second edition of the first part, the others first editions. An Essay on Man is one of the best known poems by the poet and satirist Pope. It was widely read on publication, and occasioned a response from Voltaire, La Loi Naturelle of 1756. Pope was very attached to the work, and crushed by some of the negative responses it engendered, in particular its demolition by a Swiss professor, Jean-Pierre de Crousaz. Not until the 1735 publication of his Works did Pope firmly claim authorship of the work, commenting: 'If I could flatter myself that this Essay has any merit, it is in steering betwixt the extremes of doctrines seemingly opposite, in passing over terms utterly unintelligible, and in forming a temperate yet not inconsistent, and a short yet not imperfect system of Ethics'.

        A COMPENDIOUS ACCOUNT OF THE WHOLE ART OF BREEDING, NURSING, AND THE RIGHT ORDERING OF THE SILK - WORM. Illustrated with figures engraven on copper: whereon is curiously exhibited the whole management of this profitable insect.

      London, printed for John Worrall; Olive Payne; Thomas Boreman; and Thomas Game, 1733.FIRST EDITION, 1773, pamphlet. Small 4to, approximately 205 x 165 mm, 8 x 6¼ inches, 5 only of 6 fine folding engraved plates, lacks plate 2, now supplied in facsimile on 18th century paper, taken from an earlier engraved plate with Latin text at bottom, (the plates were copied from plates done in the 16th century), plate 5 signed "Geo. Child sculp", pages: (4), iv, (9) - 32, bound in plain drab grey - blue wrappers, linen spine, no label or lettering on spine as issued, covers slightly marked, 3 small light brown stains to frontispiece, top outer corner of title page slightly creased, corners of early pages slightly dog - eared, 2 leaves have pale stain in fore - edge margin, small pale stain to 2 inner margins, 2 neat corrections to text, 2 contiguous leaves expertly reinserted, 1 plate dusty in top margin. A good copy of a scarce item (lacking 1 plate as noted, now supplied in facsimile). This work is generally attributed to Thomas Boreman the bookseller and author of the famous children's book Description of Three Hundred Animals. The Dedication and the Introduction are signed T. B. and his name is in the list of publishers on the title page. The first interest in silk culture in colonial America stemmed from the discovery of native mulberry trees growing in Virginia. King James I, seeking a way to avoid the heavy importation charges, promoted the development of sericulture in Virginia and sent the colonists detailed instructions and materials for silk cultivation. The attempt was not successful, but it did not discourage other colonies from undertaking this unfamiliar and labour - intensive process. Silk culture was one of the main considerations in the settlement of Georgia, and Boreman dedicates his Compendious Account to the "trustees for establishing the colony of Georgia in America". Boreman's instructions described the more elaborate methods then used in European silk - making. Two years after the publication of this book, Georgia exported eight pounds of silk and over a thousand pounds in 1759. Although advocates of the Georgia colony predicted that it was the ideal place for the silk culture to thrive, the lack of skilled labour thwarted the dream of huge savings on silk imports. Not in Sabin, Goldsmiths' or Kress. Frontispiece: Plate 1, with the men on horseback, recounts the story of the Nestorian monks who (according to legend, at least) smuggled silkworm eggs out of China in their hollow walking sticks, and brought them to Emperor Justinian. Plate 2, the facsimile plate, shows the stages in the life cycle of the Silk - worm, plate 3 shows the incubation of the silkworm eggs, plates 4 & 5 show the worms being fed and cared for and the spinning, plate 6 represents the machine to wind off the silk from the cods, with furnaces and cauldrons for that purpose.

Strahan; Bath: J. Leake, 1733. 195 x 125 mm. Paneled calf ca. 1733, gilt edges, rebacked, endpapers renewed. Very good copy. Engraved armorial bookplate of Charles Hope, first Earl of Hopetoun (1681-1742) or his son John Hope, the second earl (1704-81).</p> <p>First Edition. Cheyne&#146;s term &#147;English malady&#148; refers to depression, the causes of which Cheyne listed as moist air, the variable English climate, too much meat and alcohol, sedentary habits and overcrowding. 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&#146;s work inspired an interest in England in exploring the metaphysical relationship between mind and body.</p> <p>&#147;Drawing upon modern advances in anatomy and physiology, Cheyne saw what we would term &#145;functional disturbances&#146; and &#145;neuroses&#146; as the products of disorders in the nervous system, and thus may be seen as one of the originators of the neurological school of psychiatry. Believing such sickness was growing more frequent, he contended that it should be regarded as a &#145;disease of civilization,&#146; the product of the pressures and affluence of modern life, especially among the rich. Hence his approach may broadly be termed that of epidemiological psychiatry. By making &#145;neurosis&#146; acceptable, even fashionable, Cheyne&#146;s book assumed considerable wider cultural significance during the Enlightenment&#148; (Porter, &#147;Preface,&#148; in George Cheyne: The English Malady (1733), ed. Porter). Garrison-Morton 4840. Hunter & Macalpine, pp. 351-354. Norman 471.</p>
