Second Dutch edition of this great classic on Japan and the chief source of western knowledge on this country. Engelbert Kaempfer (1651-1716) was a German physician in the service of the Dutch East India Company. "He remained in Nagasaki from September 1690 to October 1692 and twice accompanied the chief of the factory at Deshima on his embassy to Edo (now Tokyo). In Nagasaki he made a profound study of Japanese history, geography, customs, and flora... it contains an account of his journey, a history and description of Japan and its fauna, a description of Nagasaki and Deshima; a report on two embassies to Edo with a description of the cities which were visited on the way; and six appendixes, on tea, Japanese paper, acupuncture, moxa, ambergris, and Japan's seclusion policy" (DSB). In November 1692 he left Japan for Java and Europe, and in October 1693 he landed at Amsterdam. Receiving the degree of M.D. at Leiden, he settled down in his native city, becoming also physician to the count of Lippe. He died at Lemgo on the 2nd of November 1716. The present work was first written in German but the English translation appeared first in print. Landwehr, VOC, 531; Cordier 418..

Cartonnage d'attente de l'époque (taches, salissures, coins frottés). Première Edition Latine du principal ouvrage du philosophe anglais Rodolphe Cudworth (1617-1688), l'un des représentants les plus brillants de l'école dite des "Platoniciens de Cambridge". Ce groupe de philosophes qui comptait notamment des penseurs comme Henry More (1614-1687), s'opposait frontalement à l'athéisme de Hobbes et s'efforçait de réconcilier l'éthique chrétienne fondamentale avec la rationalité de la philosophie, de la science et de l'humanisme de la Renaissance. "Le 'Vrai Système Intellectuel de l'Univers' demeure, en dépit de ses longueurs, le chef-d'oeuvre de Cudworth, où nous pouvons le mieux lire son vaste rationalisme. La position que cet exposé dogmatique occupe dans l'histoire de la philosophie moderne est bien remarquable, car ce livre nous offre une métaphysique toute platonicienne, édifiée par les seules forces de l'intellect, métaphysique singulièrement agressive contre toute doctrine suspecte de compromettre les vérités fondamentales du spiritualisme et du déisme, et qui par cela même contraste singulièrement avec cet empirisme intraitable qui, dès cette époque même, avait mis sa marque sur la spéculation anglaise " (Georges Lyon). Beau frontispice allégorique gravé. Très bon exemplaire à toutes marges, dans son modeste cartonnage d'attente de l'époque.

        CHILTERN AND VALE FARMING. [bound with] THE PRACTICAL FARMER; OR THE HERTFORDSHIRE HUSBANDMAN

      London: Printed for the author, 1733; London: Printed for Weaver Bickerton, 1732. Early [First?] Edition of the first work; Second Edition (with additions) of the second work (published in same year as the first edition) . Hardcover. 191 x 127 mm (7 1/2 x 5"). viii, 400 pp.; iv, 5-171 pp., [5] pp. (ads). Two separately published works bound in one. Early [First?] Edition of the first work; Second Edition (with additions) of the second work (published in same year as the first edition). Pleasing recent retrospective half calf over marbled boards, raised bands, spine with red morocco label, speckled edges. Paper repairs to title page and pp. iii and 151 of first work, no doubt to remove library stamps. Perkins 557, 562. A few quires of the first work with faint dampstain in the upper half of the fore margin (not affecting the text), light soiling to "Chiltern" title page, isolated minor browning in the first work, otherwise quite a fine, fresh, clean copy with only trivial imperfections internally, and in an unworn sympathetic binding. This volume contains two important 18th century English works dealing in a direct, specific way with land management, soil amelioration, and animal husbandry. William Ellis (d. 1758) was a self-described "plain farmer," whose second book "The Practical Farmer" (bound last in our volume) was an immediate success, going into three editions in its first year. Divided into nine chapters, it covers topics that clearly were of interest to the contemporaneous audience, from "increasing crops of pease and beans" to "how to keep pigeons and tame rabbits to advantage." The 14 chapters of the first work in our volume cover a great many headings. But it is slightly more focused than the second in that its various discussions feature two kinds of fields--those found in "the Chiltern," or hilly ground (where soils are diverse and frequently problematic) and those in "the Vale," or lowlands, full of fertile black and "blewish" soils. Ellis' gift lay in his business sense: in Fussell's words, he was among the first agricultural authors to try "to prove the advantages of the methods he propounds by attaching to them the golden measure of their financial profit, a touchstone that reaches everybody." As a result, he found himself very much in demand as a farm management "consultant" to the landed gentry, travelling all over England to proffer his expertise. Always one to capitalize on an opportunity, he supplemented his income by selling seeds and implements to his clients. These enterprises, coupled with his steady production of literature (including the first English book devoted entirely to sheep herding), led him to neglect his own farm in Hertfordshire. As a result, his reputation suffered in the eyes of visitors who expected to see a model of modern farming methods on his own spread, but who found instead outdated equipment and general dilapidation. As Fussell indicates, Ellis was criticized by more serious scholars for his inclusion of picturesque descriptions of the countryside and anecdotes about "gipsies and thieves," but, ironically, this inclusion constitutes one of the major attractions of his work for the modern reader.

        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. Bothhinges have failed. Internally, binding is strained in places, with the title page detached but present. Intermittently clean, although with the odd spot and light marginal tide marks to the last few pages. Marks and institutional ink stamp to the title page. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

        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.

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."

        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.

Timbretto e firma di ex possessore al front.annotazioni manoscritte al margine bianco di una pagina. Cartonat. coeva. Edizione parzialmente originale di questa raccolta di rime di Paolo Rolli. 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.
