        Scandianensis, in Almo Ferrariensi Gymnasio De Rara Medicatione Vulnerum seu de Vulneribus raro` Tractandis liber Secundus in Quo Nova Traditur Methodus

      London - Joh. P. Schmidt, 1733 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce copy of this influential medical treatise. Third edition, written in Latin. Considerably expanded from the first edition. With chapters focusing on the process of using natural healing treatments to treat wounds, with particular focus on the studies of Ambroise Par . Ambroise Par was a French barber surgeon who served in the role for kings Henry II, Francis II, Charles IX and Henry III. He is considered one of the fathers of surgery and modern forensic pathology and a pioneer in surgical techniques and battlefield medicine, especially in the treatment of wounds. He was also an anatomist and invented several surgical instruments. Like Par, Magati believed that gunshot wounds were not in themselves poisonous. He proposed a rational treatment of wounds, which, in spite of the example set by Par, were still being treated with unguents of various kinds. He maintained that frequent exposure of wounds to the air was deplorable, and that the introduction of sounds and lint produced dangerous putrefaction. He denied the need for cleaning and anointing and prescribed bandaging with simple linen, to be renewed only after five or six days. (DNB)Featuring a vignette title page. Volume two of the original two. Condition: In a half paper vellum binding and marbled boards. Externally, a trifle rubbed with sunning to the spine and extremities. Wear and loss to extremities.

        The English Malady: Or, A Treatise of Nervous Diseases of All Kings, as Spleen, Vapours, Lowness of Spirits, Hypochondriacal, and Hysterical Distempers, &c. In Three Parts

      London: Printed By G. Strahan in Cornhill, 1733. First Edition. 8vo. [6], xxxii, [2], 370pp, [6]. Contemporary panelled speckled calf, expertly rebacked to style, with original spine label laid down. Early manuscript title label displayed to bottom edge. Bookplate and ink inscription of Wriothesley Digby to front endpapers, with an early manuscript price of 5s. 6d. Rubbed, with some bumping to corners. George Cheyne (1671-1743), Scottish physician and author, student of the Jacobite Archibald Pitcairne in Edinburgh. Following a varied career path as tutor of mathematics and man of letters, in addition to the practice of medicine, Cheyne's ouevre was similarly varied: including a general account of Newton's calculus Fluxionem methodus inversa (London, 1703) and a philosophical treatise following the principles of Newtonian natural philosophy, Philosophical Principles of Natural Religion (London, 1705). Following the commercial and intellectual failure of the latter, Cheyne suffered a mental and physical breakdown that is recounted under the heading 'The Case of the Author' in this volume, one of the earliest examinations of 'English' depression, supposedly caused by pecularities of the national climate, diet, sedentary life and urban overpopulation.

        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, 1733. 8vo (20 cm; 7.75"). iv, [4], 320 pp. 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. Wallis, Newton, 328.2; ESTC T18642. 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.

        Instructions for Planting and Managing Hops, And for Raising Hop-Poles. Drawn up and Published by order of the Dublin Society

      Dublin: Printed by A. Rhames, Printer to the Dublin Society, 1733. FIRST EDITION. 8vo (in 4s), pp. 79 [80 blank], woodcut illustrations on pp. 49 and 174, recently rebound in half calf, gilt spine, marbled boards. A very good copy. The Dublin Society was concerned about the act of 1711 which prevented Ireland from importing hops from any country other than Great Britain. This actually served the purposes of the Irish hop-growers, encouraging them to grow their own hops, because "whenever the Season is unfavourable for Hops in England, they are sure to sell at a very high price, which lays us under great Distress, tho' perhaps at the same Time they are sold cheap in other Countries." The work was a collaborative effort on the part of various members of the Society. An edition was published in London in the same year, and a second edition in Dublin in 1758. John Mills, publishing a version of the work in his New System of Practical Husbandry (1767), described it as the "best method yet laid down for the culture of hops." Henrey 665. ESTC T132555 locates several copies in these islands, and in the USA at the Clark Library, Huntington (2 copies), Winterthur Museum Library, University of Illinois Library, University of Kansas Spencer Research Library, and the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation.

The first part of Pope's celebrated 'Essay on Man' is present in a large paper copy, corresponding to Foxon P824 and Rothschild 1614, where the Note succinctly renders the complexities of the bibliographical debate: "Part I is the variant described by Wise (Ashley) as the first; Griffith (p. 224 et seq.) argues that it is the second, (G)." Foxon notes that "Pp. 1-6 (and presumably cancelled B2) are reimpressed; the remainder is from standing type revised and rearranged." (The pagination omits pp. 7-8 but the text is complete. Griffith does not mention large paper copies of 304 and records an uncut copy as measuring 12-1/8 x 7-7/8, substantially smaller than the present copy.) This copy from the library of Frank Hogan, with autograph notes by Wise concerning the issue points of this copy laid in. Wise writes "This is an unusually fine copy. - Part I is a Large Paper Copy. This is very rare indeed. Yours is only the 2nd Large Paper copy I have actually held in my hand, & besides these I have only heard of one other. That makes 3. For many years my copy on L.P. was supposed to be unique"

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."

        THE MISER. A COMEDY TAKEN FROM PLAUTUS AND MOLIERE, AS IT IS ACTED AT THE THEATRE-ROYAL IN DRURY-LANE

      London: Printed for J. Watts..., 1733.. [12],87,[1]pp. Octavo. Three quarter crushed levant and marbled boards by Bennett. Small ink blot on pp. 46 and 47 slightly obscuring three letters, light foxing, a few small rubs to spine, otherwise a very good copy. First edition of Fielding's adaptation to the English stage of Moliere's L'AVARE, which was in turn derived from Plautus. The play met with some success, and Colley Cibber contributed an Epilogue, and "A Friend" contributed a Prologue. The prelims include a particularly detailed advertisement for an edition of English adaptations for Moliere's COMEDIES. As noted in ESTC, G2 is incorrectly signed G3, and like the Hyde copy described in Ximenes' Fielding Catalogue (list 92), the last two leaves of the prelims are unsigned. CROSS III:297. ESTC N4473.

Nell'introduzionesi legge: "avvertiamo il lettore che nella ristampa presente oltre alle poesie contenute nella edizione di Londra del 1727 si contengono di più favoritemi gentilmente dall'Autore.". Segue l'elenco delle poesie aggiunte in questa edizione veronese. Le aggiunte sono poesie di metro diverso come peraltrogià quelle presenti in questa edizione che si divide in sei libri e comprendeinfattiodi, endecasillabi, elegie, sonetti, canzoni e canzonette. In realtà l'edizione londinese del 1727 - quella a cui si allude nella prefazione - è intitolata "Di canzonette e cantate libri due" e contiene appunto soltanto i due libri di canzonette e cantate che corrispondono agli ultimi due della nostra edizione (peraltro le canzonette sono 24 e in quest'edizione 36 mentre le cantate sono in entrambi 25). In realtà l'edizione a cui nella prefazione si fa riferimento è quella delle Rime pubblicate a Londra nel 1717, presso Pickard, e poi appunto ristampata a Verona con aggiunte come anche indicato ancheda Gamba (Serie dei testi in lingua, p. 651). Nell'introduzione, quindi, l'editore confonde le due edizioni del 1717 e del 1727. ITA

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

      1733. 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 later quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands and blind fillets to lettering piece. Light rubbing to extremities, some toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves. A handsome copy. * 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.

        La Araucana

      Amongst the earliest references to the Araucanians of Chili. 1733. Madrid. Francisco Martinez Abad. In folio (298 mm x 204 mm). 1 [blank] + 8 ff. + 186 + 9 ff. + 4 ff. + 167 + 5 ff. Contemporary mottled calf, hinges starting and exposed, raised bands to spine, tooled in gilt, lettering piece, head of spine chipped. A fresh and clean copy overall. Considered the first complete edition of all five parts of this classic poem. The work is based on first-hand experience with the Araucanians of Chili under the expedition lead by Garcia Hurtado de Mendoza (1535 ? 1609), Governor of Chile and later Viceroy of Peru, which took place from 1555 to 1562, and thus, amongst the earliest references on the Chilean natives. In this poem, Ercilla criticises and consistently attacks Hurtado de Mendoza in regards to the force and brutality employed in the conquest of the native nation. Without doubt one of the great heroic poems of Spain and amongst the earliest on America, considered by Voltaire as comparable to the work of Virgil, Tasso and Camoens. Titles printed in red and black within typographical borders. Ercilla y Zuñiga was born in 1533, in 1555 he accompanied Alderete to the Americas; in 1557 he arrived in Chile, where he joined the expedition of to expand the frontiers of Chile to the South, accompanying the famous Hurtado de Mendoza.

        Letters Concerning the English Nation.

      London, C. Davis and A. Lyon, 1733. 8vo. Contemporary full calf binding, rebacked with gilt title. Edges and corners born. Inner hinges re-inforced. Internally fine, with only a bit of light occasional brownspotting. Printed on heavy, fine paper; good margins. (16, -including preface, contents, advertisements), 253, (1), (18, -Index) pp.. The important actual first edition of this highly celebrated key work of the Enlightenment, in which the anecdote of how Newton discovered gravity (the story about Newton and the falling apple) appeared for the first time, together with the description of the difference between the physical world view of the English and the French (the "plenum" and the "vacuum") . This seminal work, in which Voltaire famously depicts British philosophy, science, society and culture, in comparison to French, can be viewed as the Enlightenment equivalent to Tocqueville's "Democracy in America". This series of essays, which is based on Voltaire's experiences when living in England was actually written by Voltaire mostly in English, which he mastered to perfection. It has often been presumed that the first edition of the work was that published in French in 1734, but actually, the present English edition constitutes the actual first appearance of the work as well as the version that is closest to Voltaire's intention, as the French language version is the re-written one, and the English version the original. Curiously, almost all modern English versions are translations into English of the French edition, instead of the original English version, making this edition of the utmost importance.After the original English edition of 1733, two French editions soon followed (the first in 1734). Unlike the British, the French resented the book, and already in 1734, the French Parliament issued an order for the author's arrest and condemned the work, causing the impact of it in France to be delayed. The book was burned for being "dangerous to religion and civil order". At the same time, the work became a bestseller in Britain, and as much as 14 editions of the work were published in the eighteenth century. "Inspired by Voltaire's two-year stay in England (1726-8), this is one of the key works of the Enlightenment. Exactly contemporary with Gulliver's Travels and The Beggar's Opera, Voltaire's controversial pronouncements on politics, philosophy, religion, and literature have placed the Letters among the great Augustan satires. Voltaire wrote most of the book in English, in which he was fluent and witty, and it fast became a bestseller in Britain. He re-wrote it in French as the Lettres philosophiques, and current editions in English translate his French." (Nicholas Cronk, Introduction to the Oxford's Classics edition from 1999).The great French philosopher Voltaire was greatly impressed by the philosophical and scientific achievements of the English, especially those of Newton, Locke, and Bacon. As a disseminator of scientific knowledge, Voltaire came to play a great rôle in the popularization of Newtonian science and its discoveries, the present work being a prime example. Although the work was condemned by the French authorities, it still came to play a great rôle in the spreading of Newtonian ideas in France. The present work generally came to play a dominant rôle in Enlightenment accounts of the history of science and philosophy. The work focuses on British science and thought and uses the accounts of these to emphasize what is lacking in French society and French thought. The work is generally very critical towards the French "ancient régime", and when Voltaire here discusses the emergence of empiricism, it is viewed as an English tradition that stands in opposition to the French rationalist tradition (with Descartes as the prime example). This view is taken over by the following Enlightenment historians of science and philosophy, e.g. d'Alembert (see for instance his "Preliminary Discourse" of 1751). Some of the most influential passages of the work are probably those on Bacon (who Voltaire sees as the founder of modern experimental science), Newton, and Descartes. Letters XIV, on Descartes and Newton, XV, on attraction, and XVI, on Newton's Optics (from 1704), are among the most influential essays of the work. In XVI Voltaire reflects upon Newton's "Optics" and the way that he rejected Descartes' theory and set out his own account of the properties of light. In XV he presents the first account of Newton and the falling apple: "As he was walking one Day in his Garden, and saw some Fruits fall from a Tree, he fell into profound Meditation on that Gravity, the Cause of which had so long been sought, but in vain, by all the Philosophers, whilst the Vulgar think there is nothing mysterious in it. He said to himself, that from what height soever, in our Hemisphere, those Bodies might descend, their Fall wou'd certainly be in the Progression discover'd by Galileo; and the Spaces they run thro' would be as the Square of the Times. Why may not this Power which causes heavy Bodies to descend, and is the fame without any sensible Diminution at the remotest Distance from the Center of the Earth, or on the Summits of the highest Mountains; Why, said Sir Isaac, may not this Power extend as high as the Moon?..." (pp. 127-28).But perhaps the most famous passage in the volume is the opening of Letter XIV: "A Frenchman who arrives in London, will find Philosophy, like every Thing else, very much chang'd there. He had left the World a "plenum", and he now finds it a "vacuum". At Paris the Universe is seen, compos'd of Vortices of subtile Matter; but nothing like it is seen in London. In France, 'tis the Pressure of the Moon that causes the Tides; but in England 'tis the Sea that gravitates towards the Moon; so that when you think that the Moon should make it Flood with us, those Gentlemen fancy it should be Ebb, which, very unluckily, cannot be prov'd..." (pp. 109-10)

        The horse-hoing husbandry: Or, an essay on the principles of tillage and vegetation

      London: Pr. for the author, and sold by G. Strahan, T. Woodward, A. Miller, J. Stagg, and J. Brindley , 1733. Folio (30.2 cm, 11.875"). [4], x, 200 pp.; pp. [201–202]. 6 fold-out plts. [bound with] Tull, Jethro. A supplement to the essay on horse-hoing husbandry.... London: Pr. for and sold by the author, and may be had at Mr. Mills's, London, at John Aitkins's, Esq, in Edinburgh, and at the Bear in Hungerford, Berks., 1736. Folio. pp. [203–205], 206–69; [1] pp. Improvements in farming founded on a scientific basis made British agriculture one of the strongest in Europe in the 18th century. Though called to the bar, Jethro Tull (1674–1741) never practiced law, but devoted himself to farming on land that had belonged to his father. From the beginning he set about trying to discover ways of doing things better, including inventing a number of implements, as this work reveals both in text and in image. His work proved very successful — Tull's "seed drills" revolutionized planting techniques — and it saw a number of editions; it was translated into French, whence it proved influential on the Continent. This volume's => six beautifully engraved, pleasantly intelligible plates ("W. Thorpe, sculp.) illustrate some of Tull's inventions, including improved plows and drills for planting seeds. First printed in London in 1731, Horse-hoing is here (likely) the fourth edition; it is only the second London (and it is the first in folio), but there were also apparently two Dublin editions of 1731. Bound with it is the first edition of the interesting Supplement issued in 1736, directed largely to answering Tull's detractors. The first title is fairly widely held, in libraries; the latter, much less so. Goldsmiths'-Kress 7065; ESTC T81915 and N24607. Contemporary calf with remnants of gilt; dry, flaking, and partially gone to red, with some chips to edges, corners, and spine tips; old repairs to joints. Remnants of bookplate on front pastedown. Old water/mildew damage to lower margins, occasionally making its way a bit into text; several leaves repaired, long since. Plates generally quite clean and always pleasing, with faintest waterstaining to lower portion of plate 6 (only). All edges speckled red.

        THE TRAVELS AND ADVENTURES OF JAMES MASSEY. TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH

      London: Printed for John Watts, 1733.. [12],318,[6]pp. 12mo. Contemporary calf, sympathetically rebacked in matching calf, with raised bands and gilt labels. Engraved frontis (signed "G. Van der Guchte"). Early stamped insignia on front pastedown, modest tanning, but a very good copy. First edition in English of a significant imaginary voyage, of particular import for its relation to early conceptions of Australia. The first edition was published under a false Bordeaux, 1710 imprint, and three other editions appeared similarly dated. Recent authorities have sorted out the precedence, with the first edition being identified with some confidence as actually [Rouen, 1714]. The translator’s dedication is signed Stephen Whatley. Tyssot de Patot's novel "is a carefully written, well authenticated story of travel and adventure in Europe, in Africa, in Asia, and in an unknown land far beyond the Cape of Good Hope. The realism of the setting is based upon a close following of accounts of real travelers, such as Dellon, Tavernier, Mocquet, and Lahontan. There is nothing fantastic, unbelievable or overdrawn in the descriptions of the Austral continent. Tyssot seems to restrain himself consciously in order to write an apparently true story. Indirect criticism by the example of an imaginary and virtuous community is used here as in all the previous novels of the type. The journey to the unknown land is very carefully authenticated, as is the return journey... Discussions of science and religion are fitted into the adventures much more artistically than in the case of the novels of Foigny and Vairasse...From the point of the history of ideas...[it] is a very interesting document."- Atkinson. It is also notable for a reference to the Wandering Jew, as well as for a well-constructed bee fable. Atkinson, THE EXTRAORDINARY VOYAGE IN FRENCH LITERATURE FROM 1700 TO 1720, pp. [67]-97.

Two volumes, quarto, with a portrait of Prince Henry the Navigator, a fine folding world map and fifteen other plates, one folding, mainly views and town plans; a good large copy in contemporary French mottled calf. First edition of this important work on Portuguese discoveries by an adventurous Jesuit missionary - the discoverer of ginseng. The foremost colonising power of Europe, Portugal was responsible for many of the discoveries in the East Indies and the Far East and Lafitau's book is an important work for this area.Lafitau was a French Jesuit priest, historian and missionary, an adventurous figure who spent many years in Canada, some of the time among the Iroquois; his experiences there formed the basis for his Moeurs des Sauvages Ameriquains, the pioneering anthropological study which influenced, among others, Rousseau and Chateaubriand and drew the vituperation of Voltaire.The insights and acumen he gained by his practical experience as a 'pioneer' were applied to this significant historical study of the grand age of Portuguese exploration. "This work is principally concerned with Portuguese voyages and explorations in the East Indies, China, Japan, and Melanesia. Many important references to Magellan are included. The introduction is an appreciation of Portuguese historians..." (Hill).Hill, 961; Silva, 779.

        A New History of the Holy Bible

      London - Printed for the author, 1733 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Thomas Stackhouse's popular self-published illustrated history of the Bible. First edition. Complete in two volumes. This work was originally to be called 'A Complete History of the Holy Bible'. Stackhouse had in May 1732 been approached by John Wilford and Thomas Edlin, to whom he owed money for books, to write a work for publication in parts, and had suggested this subject. He subsequently contracted with Edlin but soon fell out with him over payment and the rate of production of both copy and printed text. This quarrel led Edlin to engage John Campbell to take over the work, which he hurried out in 1733, though not before Stackhouse had published 'The Book-Binder, Book-Printer, and Book-Seller Confuted' (1732), defending himself and revealing Edlin's shortcomings as a publisher. Having shrewdly learned his lesson, Stackhouse completed his own text, now called 'A New History of the Holy Bible', and published it himself in 1733. Illustrated with maps and plates, each dedicated to a different member of the hierarchy of the Church of England, this book was based on wide reading and written in an accessible style. It proved to be a great success as a reliable work of reference. [DNB]With many beautiful engraved plates and maps, including a plan of the Temple of Solomon, maps of the travels of Jesus and St. Paul, a fold-out illustration of Noah's Ark and a plate depicting the Passover of the Jews. With previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown of one G. E. R. BrummerCondition: Expertly rebound in half calf bindings with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, sound with shelfwear and rubbing. Slight cracking to one joint. Internally, firmly bound. Foxing to first and last few pages but otherwise generally bright and clean with just the odd spot. Some pages have been repaired and one or two have very slight marginal loss. Some plates have been discreetly reinforced to repair curling or small closed tears. Closed tears to the Noah's Ark folding plate. Overall: VERY GOOD.
