        Le droit de la nature et des gens, ou Systeme general des Principes les plus importants de la Morale, de la Jurisprudence, et de la Politique. Traduit du lation par Jean BARBEYRAC.

      Amsterdam, Chez la Veuve de Pierre de Coup., 1734.. Cinquieme Edition, revue de nouveau & fort augmentee. Tome premier (...et second). Quart. (1) Kupferportarit von Pufendorf, Titelblatt in Rot-Schwarz-Druck mitt Vignette, CXXI, (3), 716 S.; (2) Ttlbl. in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, (2), 613, (36), 52, (2) S. Zwei Halblederbände mit Portrait von Samuel Pufendorf und Jean Barbeyrac. Epochales Werk zum Naturrecht und erste deutscher Entwurf eines naturrechtlichen Systems einer Privatrechtsordnung!. Die Naturrechtsordnung von Pufendorf nahm breiten Einfluß auf die geistigen Strömungen seiner Zeit, das Werk hatte gesamteuropäische Wirkung. Übersetzungen ins Englische, Französische und Russische waren die Folge und zeigen die epochale Bedeutung dieses Werkes an. Vor allem im Ausland wurde Pufendorf rezipiert, so von John Locke und auch Jean Jacques Rousseau. Und sein Einfluß auf die Menschenrechtserklärung in den USA ist unverkennbar. Bis zum Jahre 1684 blieb Pufendorf in Schweden, konnte auf eine außerordentlich eerfolgreiche Lehrtätigkeit an der Universität zu Lund zurückblicken und wurde schließlich von König Karl IX. zum schwedischen Hofhistoriographen ernannt. Ab dem Jahre 1684, nunmehr erschien erstmals das berühmte Werk in Deutschland, versuchte Pufendorf in Berlin Fuß zu fassen. Dies gelang ihm endlich aufgrund des Willens des Großen Kurfürsten. Versuche, ihn für die neugegründete preußische Universität in Halle zu gewinnen, schlugen jedoch fehl. Pufendorf blieb in Berlin und starb dort am 26. Oktober 1694.

New Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature II, 1503-4, notes this is the fourth edition of this work in English. Earlier editions in French cited in Graesse I, 314. Translated from the French by John Peter Bernard, Thomas Birch, John Lockman, and "other hands." With articles "relating to Oriental History" by George Sale. Separate dedications each volume. Prefaces in volumes I and II. The preface to Volume I notes that previous English editions were "undertaken by several persons, most of whom were not only unacquainted with the author's style and manner, but unskill'd in the French, and even in their own tongue." In addition, quotations in Greek, Latin, Spanish, and Italian in those editions were not translated. Preface includes specimens of such errors. This edition sought to correct such defects. Pierre Bayle (1647-1706) was a French Protestant and also a forerunner of the Encyclopedists who emerged in the early years of the Enlightenment. As hostility to Protestants grew in France before the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, Bayle fled from that country about 1680 to the Dutch Republic (biography in the online Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). All cover pages printed in black and red. Volume 10 includes alphabetical and chronological lists of all articles, and a general index. Vol. 1 printed in 1734. Vols. 2-3 in 1735. Vol. 4 in 1736.

        FIVE HUNDRED NEW RECEIPTS IN COOKERY, CONFECTIONARY, PASTRY, PRESERVING, CONSERVING, PICKLING; AND THE SEVERAL BRANCHES OF THESE ARTS NECESSARY TO BE KNOWN BY ALL GOOD HOUSEWIVES

      London: Printed for Thomas Astley, 1734. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 206 x 124 mm (8 1/8 x 4 7/8"). 1 p.l. (title), iv, 249, [9] pp. Revised and recommended by Mr. Henry Howard. FIRST EDITION. Pleasing recent retrospective chestnut-colored calf, covers with central frame formed by multiple blind and decorative rules, fleuron cornerpieces, raised bands, maroon morocco label. Printer's woodcut rose device on title page. Bitting, p. 324; Oxford, p. 64; Vicaire, col. 598; Maclean, p. 101. Title page a little soiled, very faint dampstain to tail margin of first half of text, occasional minor marginal stains, smudges, or corner creases, other trivial imperfections, but AN EXCELLENT COPY of a book difficult to find in pleasing condition, the text generally clean and fresh with especially ample margins, and in an unworn sympathetic binding. Given the kind of use this volume would have been expected to incur, this is an unusually well-preserved copy of a sought-after collection of recipes for meat, game, fish, fowl, confections, pastries, preserving, and pickling from the repetoire of John Middleton, "Cook to his Grace the late Duke of Bolton." Middleton begins with terms and instructions for carving everything from eggs(!) to deer. Recipes follow in no particular order, so that in the space of three pages, one can find instructions for pickling walnuts, "sousing" trout, and making a hedge-hog cream (a dessert in the shape of, rather than made with, a hedge hog, one is somewhat disappointed to learn). At the end of the volume, we are given sample first and second courses for meals in each month of the year. These "receipts" gave the ordinary English housewife the opportunity to reproduce the fare served in the homes of the nobility, rather like the cookbooks of celebrity chefs today allow the modern cook to prepare dishes from the best restaurants. This is, of course, a culinary item, but it is also a fascinating glimpse into 18th century English domestic life.

        A New Account of Some Parts of Guinea and the Slave-Trade

      London: James, John, and Paul Knapton, 1734. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. William Snelgrave was an English sea captain, slave trader, and ivory trader on the West African coast. He reportedly treated his slaves better than most traders of the day. In what passed for notable humanity at the time,Snelgrave provided his slaves two meals a day, visits to the deck, and pipes and tobacco. He also allowed the women and children to be unchained. He was captured by pirate captains La Bouche, Cocklyn, and Howell Davis along the coast of West Africa in 1719. He was originally attacked by Cocklyn's quartermaster for failing to surrender, beaten, and shot in the arm. What allegedly spared Snelgrave was his men crying out: "For God's sake, don't kill our captain, for we were never with a better man." Snelgrave wrote about his captivity with the pirates. He described how Davis claimed that "their reasons for going a-pirating were to revenge themselves on base merchants and cruel commanders of ships." This may explain why Snelgrave was spared. In 1727 he arrived at Whydah, which had just been captured by Dahomey. His account of this event, which he learned of second hand, has been the main source of many modern historians. In 1734 he published A New Account of Some Parts of Guinea and the Slave-Trade. He was not critical of the slave trade like other traders became, and dedicated his book to the European merchants of West Africa. Here is the first edition of Snelgrave's book. The binding is recent and fine in 3/4 brown leather with raised spine bands and gilt rules over marbled paper-covered boards with leather corners. The contents are bright and clean with no spotting. The original folding map is present, properly folded, and untorn, though professionally reinforced on the back along the edges.

        THE KORAN, COMMONLY CALLED THE ALCORAN OF MOHAMMED

      London: Printed by C. Ackers for J. Wilcox, 1734. FIRST EDITION OF SALE'S TRANSLATION. Hardcover. First Printing of the Best Translation of the Koran, Owned by an Adventurer in the Employ of the Nawam of Oudh. 254 x 203 mm (10 x 8"). 3 p.l., iii-ix, [3], 187, [1], 508 pp., [8] leaves (index). FIRST EDITION OF SALE'S TRANSLATION. Excellent late 18th century treated sheep, covers with gilt centerpiece of upturned sword topped by a Phrygian cap, the handle of the sword containing the initial "P," flat spine with gilt compartments featuring a garland centerpiece within a lozenge of leaf tools, a smaller leaf tool at corners, black morocco label. With five engraved plates: a map of Arabia, a plan of the temple in Mecca (both folding), and three genealogical tables (two folding, and one of these incorporating the fifth plate as one of its panels). Top of title page with struck-through inscription of early owner J. B.(?) Thomas as well as ink ownership inscription of Colonel Ant[oine] Polier (see below); foot of title with "Antoine Polier an:2:" neatly stamped in black ink; front free endpaper and title page with embossed coat of arms, a shield with bend sinister and a fish hauriant in each field; front free endpaper with ink stamp of A. v. Hammerstein of Abentheuer bei Birkenfeld. Harris, p. 87; Lowndes II, 1290; Graesse IV, 44; Brunet III, 1309; Rothschild 1811. Joints and extremities a bit rubbed (corners worn through), covers slightly marked, a short closed marginal tear to the map, perhaps 10 percent of the gatherings with overall faint browning (not at all noticeable), occasional minor foxing or marginal smudges, otherwise a fine copy, the text consistently clean and crisp, and the binding solid and generally well preserved, with nothing approaching a serious condition problem. This is the first accurate translation of the Qur'an, or Koran, into English, or indeed into any modern language, offered here in an attractive 18th century binding, and with intriguing provenance. Sale's Koran was the first version to be done directly from Arabic into English, and its magisterial qualities are still held in high esteem. A French translation by Du Ryer had appeared in 1649, a work that the normally restrained DNB characterizes as "despicable," and from this French translation, Alexander Ross had created an English version. The translation of Sale is in a different class. According to DNB, "Sale's translation is remarkably accurate." Partly because he has consistently "made use of native commentators . . . , his version remains the best in any language . . . . Sale's preliminary discourse and notes display a remarkable acquaintance not only with the works of European writers upon Mohammedanism and its history, but also with native Arab literature. The preface and notes are still reckoned among the best sources of information with regard to the faith of Islam and the Mohammedan peoples." A solicitor and collector of Oriental manuscripts who never left England, George Sale (ca. 1697-1736) was taught Arabic by Daidichi, a Greek from Aleppo, and probably also by the Syrian Christian Solomon Negri. Negri and Sale cooperated on a translation into Arabic of the New Testament, undertaken for the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, and Sale then employed the knowledge of Arabic he had gained to translate the Qur'an. Given the gilt emblem on the boards here, the present copy was probably bound for the adventurer and collector Colonel Antoine-Louis Henri de Polier (1741-95), a military engineer from Lausanne who made a fortune in India. He had gone to that country in the employ of the British East India company, but entered the service of the wealthy and powerful Nawam of Oudh in 1772. His avocation was collecting manuscripts in Sanskrit, Persian, and Arabic, some of which he donated to the French royal library. Polier returned to France in 1788, just in time for the revolution. The symbol on the cover of this volume--the Phrygian cap with sword--indicates that he supported, or wished to appear to support, the revolutionary cause. (The "an:2:" ["year 2"] stamp on the title page refers to the revolutionary calendar year that ran from September 1793 through September 1794.) Polier was murdered in 1795, whether by robbers or political enemies is unclear.

        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 (268 × 210 mm). Contemporary full calf, spine in compartments with glint and blind rules, blind tooling, and a burgundy morocco title label, sides bordered with a floral gilt roll. Folding map, 4 plates of which 3 are folding. In this copy the non-folding plate 3 has been bound in attached to one of the folding plates. Pencil annotations throughout the preliminary discourse. Worming to top inner corner of the first six leaves, and to bottom inner corner from pp.463-end. Rebacked, with rubbed corners and a few marks and scratches, leaves somewhat cockled and some phases of tanning, but on the whole clean. A very good copy, attractively well-margined, untrimmed to fore- and bottom edge. First edition, a notably well margined copy, of the second and most authoritative English version of the Koran. Although a solicitor by profession, George Sale (c.1696–1736) was a leading orientalist, having acted as corrector to the SPCK's Arabic translation of the New Testament (1727). His translation is prefixed by a long "preliminary discourse", a compendium of all that was known about the religion of Islam, itself separately translated into and published in several languages. The 1734 edition was the only one that was published during his lifetime, but the translation was reprinted in 1746, 1764 and many times afterward, most recently in 1984. Sale was textually indebted to the 1698 Latin translation of Ludovico Marracci, confessor to Pope Innocent XI, but unlike Marracci, Sale was convinced of the sincerity of Muhammad's intentions, though he remained eager to secure the conversion of the Muslims to Protestant Christianity. Sale's presumed partiality to Islam earned him the criticism of his orthodox contemporaries, and probably led to a breach with the SPCK, but scholars like Gibbon (whose treatment of Arabian history and Islam in his Decline and Fall relies heavily on Sale), Voltaire, and Lessing valued him highly. In 1921 Edward Denison Ross claimed that Sale's version had not yet been superseded, and more than fifty years later Sale's objectivity still guarded him from criticism in Edward Said's Orientalism (1978).
