         Vida, y virtudes heróicas de la Augustíssima Emperatriz Leonor Magdalena Teresa. Dedicada a su Alteza Sereníssima la Princesa de Asturias (Nieta de la Augusta Emperatriz). Traducida del idioma portugués en castellano por el Doctor Don Juan Elías Gómez de Terán, Capellán de Honor, y Predicador de Su Magestad, y Cura de su Real Palacio

      0 - Dinarich, Esteban (S.J.), Vida, y virtudes heróicas de la Augustíssima Emperatriz Leonor Magdalena Teresa. Dedicada a su Alteza Sereníssima la Princesa de Asturias (Nieta de la Augusta Emperatriz). Traducida del idioma portugués en castellano por el Doctor Don Juan Elías Gómez de Terán, Capellán de Honor, y Predicador de Su Magestad, y Cura de su Real Palacio, Madrid, Imprenta de los Herederos de Francisco del Hierro, 1734. 4º. (24 x 17 cm.), 28 hs. + 1 lámina + 496 págs. Portada a dos tintas, papel de gran gramaje, con amplios márgenes. El extraordinario grabado calcográfico del retrato de la Emperatriz viuda fue realizado por Palomino. Asimismo posee dos pequeños grabados en cobre firmados por Benítez. Ejemplar único conocido, emisión especial realizada para la casa real con extraordinaria encuadernación en piel de época, con el lomo con nervios, título y adornos en oro restaurado, y los planos con sendos superlibros con los escudos de las monarquías española y portuguesa. Este ejemplar se diferencia de las 8 ediciones referenciadas en el Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico Español (CCPB000289759-8 y CCPB000443042-5), y la descrita por Palau (nº. 373493), en el replanteamiento de la portada (fol. a1) en la que desaparece el nombre del traductor portugués ("Juan Leopoldo, Varon Libre de Seegh), y se explicita el traductor español y su cargos ("Doctor, Don Juan Elías Gómez de Terán, Capellán de Honor y Predicador de su Magestad, y Cura de su Real Palacio), frente a ese anónimo "Por un sacerdote secular". Asimismo se modifica la firma de la dedicatoria a la infanta María Bárbara de Braganza (vuelto del folio c2) que en el resto de los ejemplares figura con el criptónimo D.D.J.E.G.T., ahora se desarrolla, "Doct. D. Juan Elías Gómez de Terán". Por el contrario, coinciden ambas emisiones en mantener este criptónimo en la Suma del Privilegio (folio f2). Es destacable asimismo que otra de las diferencias notables de esta emisión es que utiliza un papel de mejor calidad, más fuerte. En las páginas que el Traductor dedica a su trabajo se nos ofrece cumplida noticia de la historia editorial de esta biografía de la Emperatriz consorte del Sacro Imperio Germánico, escrita en primer lugar en latín por el confesor de la monarca, el jesuita Esteban Dinarich, provincial de la orden. Posteriormente será traducida al alemán, italiano y portugués, e incluso formará parte de un compendio latino. Gómez de Terán, autor de varias obras morales, la trasladará, como se explicita en la portada, a partir de la versión portuguesa, Vida e virtudes heroicas da augustissima imperatriz Leonor Magdalena Theresa, esposa de Leopoldo o grande, imperador dos romanos. Composta per um religioso da Companhia de Jesus, e traduzida em portuguez (par D. João Leopoldo Baraõ livre de Seegh), Lisboa, na Patriarcal Officina de Musica, 1727. La obra se dedica a la Infanta portuguesa María Bárbara de Braganza (1711-1758) princesa de Asturias, esposa de Fernando VI y nieta de la Emperatriz biografiada, quien incluso conservaba en su larga lista de nombres el recuerdo de su abuela (María Magdalena Bárbara Xavier Leonor Teresa Antónia Josefa de Bragança). Como es sabido fue una de las reinas españolas más cultas, mecenas y amante de las artes, protectora del famoso cantante Farinelli, y fundadora del Convento de las Salesas Reales de Madrid, en donde reposan sus restos mortales. Es posible pensar que el ejemplar que ofrecemos pudiera haber sido el personal de la Infanta, habida cuenta que no se conserva en la Biblioteca del Palacio Real de Madrid. En este sentido, y como curiosidad, cabe destacar que las Librerías de viejo españolas y extranjeras y de sus asociaciones promotoras publicaron un opúsculo conmemorativo de 16 páginas en el 2006 con motivo del bautizo de la infanta doña Leonor de Borbón, en el que se reproducía la portada de esta obra en la emisión corriente. La librería ofrece por tiempo limitado un descuento del 10%. El precio original de este ejemplar [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Leçons de phisique, contenant les élémens de la phisique, déterminés par les seules loix des mécaniques., expliquées au Collége Royal de France. En 4 volumes. Edition originale et complète

      Brocas (et autres), Paris 1734 - Paris, Brocas (et autres), 1734-1739, 4 pt. in-8°, illustrés de nombreuses figures planches [I, II, III, IV (2 fois), V (3 fois), VI (2 fois), VII, VIII (2 fois), IX, X (2 fois) + 8 planches non numérotées], reliures plein veau, dos à cinq nerfs ornés, tranches rouges. Edition originale et complète. Travail de vers dans les premières pages du premier volume sans atteinte au texte et sur la partie supérieure du second plat du quatrième volume, léger manque sur la planche VII, sinon bon état général. Personnage majeur dans la lutte prolongée contre l'importation de la science newtonienne en France, Privat de Molières consacre sa carrière au développement et à l'amélioration de la physique cartésienne. Conscient de la supériorité de la précision newtonienne par rapport à l'imprécision cartésienne dans l'explication des phénomènes naturels, il était néanmoins convaincu de la rectitude de l'idéal de Descartes d'une science purement mécanique. Dans une série de mémoires lus à l'Académie, dans des articles du Journal de Trévoux, et dans la version publiée de ses conférences au Collège Royal, les quatre volumes de Leçons de physique, Privat de Molières propose un programme cartésien remanié qui, en intégrant les calculs et les techniques mathématiques de Newton, s'accorderait avec des données expérimentales et observationnelles exactes. Au centre de son système se trouvait l'existence de petits tourbillons, idée empruntée à Malebranche pour remplacer la théorie cartésienne discréditée de la matière.

         The Tragedy of Locrine, the Eldest son of King Brutus

      London: Tonson, 1734. 2nd separate edition, and the earliest one you can buy, as neither luck, nor wealth, will procure the Thomas Creede 1st edition (a 1594 quarto, that's hideously rare, and expensive beyond speculation). Rebound in old marbled paper wrappers, near fine (really nice for this book). The 17th century attributed Locrine to Shakespeare, and it was included in the 4th folio of 1685. More recent debate advocates assigning it to either Wentworth Smith, George Peele, Robert Greene, or even Charles Tilney, with Shakespeare serving as reviser, but doubts remain, no one knows for sure, and new discovery may attribute it wholly or primarily to Shakespeare as it once was. Collation: 12mo: [2], [3], 4-59, [1] (frontis+60 pages, including the ad, a tirade against Walker). Near fine.

         The Ichnographii of the Town Parts, Leasehold and Copie Hold, Tennements and Cottages in the Mannor of Milton Abbas.

      1656 and 1734. - Large folio. 650 x 420 mm. Bound collection of 12 manuscript maps covering the area around Milton Abbas, Dorset. Dating from two periods, 1656 and 1735, bound out of sequence. The earlier maps are extremely ornate, hand coloured and detailed plans with reference keys, all mounted on linen, 1656 or a little later. The later sequence of maps is surveyed for Jacob Banks [Bancks], Esq and dated 1734, on vellum and comprises field outlines and perhaps serves as an accompanying key to the earlier maps. 1. Situation of Delcomb Farm with the Court and Town of Abbas Milton. The Farm House, Orchards and Gardens. 580 x 1270 mm. [c. 1656] ? see 9. 2. Luccombe Farm.

Surveyed for Jacob Banks, Esq. 1734. 620 x 355 mm. on vellum. ? see 6. 11. Bagber?s Farm, Surveyed for Jacob Banks, Esq. 1734. 355 x 990 mm. on vellum. ? see 3. 12. Hewish Farm, Surveyed for Jacob Banks, Esq. 1734. 355 x 710 mm. on vellum. ? see 5. The Milton Abbas estate was in the hands of the Tregonwell Family from the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries and passed to John Tregonwell IV sometime during the seventeenth century. It seems likely that the first series of plans was produced on his death when the estate was passed on to his son John Tregonwell V. He died without a male heir in 1696 and his daughter married Sir Jacob Bancks, nephew to the Swedish ambassador. On Bancks' death in 1724 the estate was inherited by his second son, also called Jacob, who began extensive rebuilding and renovation. It would be reasonable to assume that he also undertook the new survey of his estates, which feature here, based on the earlier survey. On his death in 1737 there was a fifteen year dispute between rival Bancks and Tregonwell claimants and the estate was sold in 1752 to Joseph Damer, later to become Lord Milton, then the Duke of Dorchester. The grounds of the Abbey itself were later landscaped by Capability Brown, and much of the original village was demolished and relocated. Full eighteenth century mottled calf, worn, but sound.

         The English Malady: or, A treatise of nervous diseases of all kinds; as spleen, vapours, lowness of spirits, hypochondriacal, and hysterical distempers, &c. In three parts. Part I. Of the nature and cause of nervous distempers. Part II. Of the cure of nervous distempers. Part III. Variety of cases that illustrate and confirm the method of cure. With the Author?s own case at large. The second edition.

      Printed for G. Strahan, in Cornhill. 1734 - [6], xxxii, [2], 370, [6]pp ads. 8vo. Some sl. marginal browning but a very good clean copy. Full contemporary sprinkled calf, double gilt ruled borders, raised & gilt banded spine; some minor rubbing to hinges & board edges. Name stamp on front endpaper: ?This is the property of Silke Montague' ESTC T53891. Each of the three parts has its own titlepage. George Cheyne, 1671-1743, was a Scottish physician and proto-psychologist based in Bath, best known now as an early supporter of a vegetarian diet. The English Malady, first published in 1733, included case histories of some of Cheyne's patients and a lengthy account of his own battle with obesity and depression. To Cheyne, the English malady was melancholy, not obesity itself, but obesity was a symptom along with lowness of spirits, anxiety, insomnia and nervous agitation, all of which were the result of modern urbanity and an immoderate, luxurious lifestyle. In calling melancholy ?the English malady,? Cheyne was flattering his readers by suggesting that it was a syndrome arising from English wealth, civilization and refinement. The eighteenth century elite believed themselves particularly susceptible to nervous disorders and dietary complaints ? probably because they tended to overindulge in rich food and take very little exercise. The patients described in the case studies suffer from various maladies combining both nervous and physical symptoms; since Cheyne believed that mind, body, and spirit were linked, he recommended a healthy, ?animal-low? diet and light exercise as treatment for a wide range of mental and physical illnesses. He had a number of high-profile patients including Alexander Pope, Samuel Richardson, Robert Walpole?s daughter, the Earl and Countess of Huntingdon, the Earls of Essex and Bath, and many others.

Likewise a true relation of the most secret intrigues and negotiations of the courts of France, Spain, Germany, and Savoy. Interspersed with variety of entertaining amours and original letters of the several Princes concerned. Also the political intrigues of the late King of Sardinia, containing an account of the ill treatment of Mr Phelippeaux the French Ambassador at the Court of Turin, contrary to the Law of Nations. Translated from the original French of Count Bonneval, now in great esteem at the court of the Grand-Seignior, by J. Sparrow, Gent. With a correct map explaining the seat of the last and present war in Italy.

A second edition was published in 1736, under the title, Memoirs of the Famous Bashaw Bonneval. Our research indicates that the translator J. Sparrow also appears to be fictitious; ESTC records ?Sparrow? as author of A New English Dictionary in 1739, noting that the name is a pseudonym for Benjamin Norton Defoe. Benjamin, a hack writer, is thought to be the illegitimate son of Daniel Defoe, although the evidence is inconclusive. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         The Koran, Commonly called The Alcoran of Mohammed.

      London: by C. Ackers for J. Wilcox,, 1734. Translated into English immediately from the Original Arabic; with Explanatory Notes, taken from the most approved Commentators. To which is prefixed A Preliminary Discourse. By George Sale. Quarto (248 x 190 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, rebacked with the original gilt-tooled spine laid down, raised bands, title gilt to second compartment, rolled gilt border enclosing decorative blind panel to sides, red sprinkled edges. Title-page printed in red and black, folding map of Arabia, 3 genealogical plates of which 2 folding, one folding plan of Mecca. Light craquelure to darkened spine, sides and extremities lightly rubbed and scuffed, title page slightly browned, very small closed tear to folding map stub, a few trivial marks to contents, but otherwise remarkably crisp and fresh internally. A very good copy. First edition of Sale's Qur'an, the first English translation of the Qur'an to be made directly from the Arabic, and the basis for all subsequent English editions until the mid-nineteenth century; previously the only complete English translation had been Alexander Ross's 1649 version, which relied solely on the 1647 French edition by Alexandre du Ryer. George Sale was a solicitor and "the first notable English Arabist who was not in holy orders … From 1726 to 1734 he was closely associated with the Society for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge, which he served in his legal capacity. Meanwhile he was working on a translation of the Qur'an … a landmark in the history of Qur'anic studies" (Holt, Studies in the History of the Near East, p. 58). Sale was textually indebted to the 1698 Latin translation of Ludovico Marracci, confessor to Pope Innocent XI; notably, his citation of Muslim commentators is restricted to those already mentioned by his predecessor. Yet Sale's work, and in particular his extensive Preliminary Discourse discussing both the biography of the Prophet and the Arabian context of Islam, displays "an enlightened and objective attitude which may have been responsible for his gradual dissociation from the activities of the SPCK", in contrast to the openly polemical intentions of Marracci, whose prefaced offered a lengthy refutation of the Qur'an and Muhammad's prophethood (ibid.) Sale's balanced presentation of Muhammad and Islamic origins was much admired by his contemporaries, including Voltaire, Lessing and especially Gibbon, whose treatment of Arabian history and Islam in his Decline and Fall relies heavily on Sale. In 1921 Edward Denison Ross claimed that Sale's version had still not been superseded, and more than fifty years later Sale's objectivity guarded him from criticism in Edward Said's Orientalism (1978). Provenance: ownership inscription of "Wm Woodforde, Galhampton House" to the front pastedown, above the later ownership inscription "Jane Woodforde, Ansford House, 1845". William (1758-1844) was the nephew of the noted Somerset clergyman James (1740-1803), whose diaries (mentioning William) were rediscovered and published in the early 20th century as The Diary of a Country Parson, and have been widely studied for its "incomparably vivid picture of country life and manners" (ODNB): an interesting provenance hinting at Sale's wide contemporary readership and the growing interest in Islam across 18th-century England.

First edition of Sale's Qur'an, the first English translation of the Qur'an to be made directly from the Arabic, and the basis for all subsequent English editions until the mid-nineteenth century; previously the only complete English translation had been Alexander Ross's 1649 version, which relied solely on the 1647 French edition by Alexandre du Ryer. George Sale was a solicitor and "the first notable English Arabist who was not in holy orders From 1726 to 1734 he was closely associated with the Society for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge, which he served in his legal capacity. Meanwhile he was working on a translation of the Qur'an a landmark in the history of Qur'anic studies" (Holt, Studies in the History of the Near East, p. 58).
