      London: I. Ware. 1735. First edition, folio, 20-1/4 x 14 inches, 4pp. including engraved titlepage, + 35 numbered copper-engraved plates on 27 sheets, 9 of which are double-page, engravings by P[aul?] Fourdrinier after drawings by Isaac Ware.

Ware (the author / publisher) on verso of titlepage, binding rebacked with some strengthening to corners, some pages soiled, browned, a few small marginal tears, still a complete collectable copy, the author / publisher&#39;s own copy with his ex-libris. & Isaac Ware (1704-1766) was an English architect and translator of the books of Italian architect, Andrea Palladio. In 1721 he was apprenticed to architect Thomas Ripley, while continuing in the aesthetic sphere of Lord Burlington from whos patronage and influence he benefited. Gaining work from private patrons, he built a number of country houses, including Wrotham Park for Admiral John Byng and Clifton Hill House for Paul Fisher.& This book details the architectural plans by Colin Campbell, James Gibbs for the exteriors, and William Kent for the interiors, for Houghton Hall, built for Britain&#39;s first prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole. The engravings are by P[aul?] Fourdrinier, French artist and engraver who emigrated to England ca. 1720 and was active as an engraver until about 1750. & Houghton Hall is considered one of the key neo-Palladian buildings in England. Three years after the publication of this book, he published his own translation and engravings of Palladio&#39;s Four Books of Architecture, considered the best translation for the next 100+ years. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10631.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        A Journey over Land, from the Gulf of Honduras to the Great South Sea. Performed by ... Cockburn, and five other Englishmen... containing, variety [sic.] of extraordinary distresses and adventures, and some new and useful discoveries of the inland of these almost unknown parts of America: as also, an exact account of the manners, customs, and behaviour of the several Indians... To which is added, a curious piece, written in the reign of King James I. and never before printed, intitled, A Brief Discoverye of some things best worth noteinge in the Travells of Nicholas Withington, a Factor in the East-Indiase

      London: printed for C. Rivington, 1735. Octavo. (7 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches). 3pp. publisher&#39;s advertisements at back. Folding engraved map. Expertly bound to style in half 18th-century russia-backed contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. First edition with the rare folding map. This work, which was much re-printed, was, for many years, assumed to be fictional due to the severe nature of the descriptions of the &#39;extraordinary distresses and adventures&#39;. The map, titled &#39;A Map of that part of ye kingdom of Mexico travers&#39;d by Jno. Cockburn & his Companions&#39; depicts Central America and the Gulf of Honduras. &#39;Cockburn and several other pirates were set ashore ... at Puerto Caballos in 1730. After escaping from jail in San Pedro Sula, they crossed the Isthmus to San Salvador and thence traveled to Panama overland ... The account is valuable, as few foreign observers visited Central America in the early eighteenth century&#39; (Griffin.) The Withington, with its own titlepage, makes up the final eighty-five pages of this work. Field 336; Griffin 2530; Sabin 14095

        A JOURNEY OVER LAND, , FROM THE GULF OF HONDURAS TO THE GREAT SOUTH-SEA. PERFORMED BY JOHN COCKBURN, AND FIVE OTHER ENGLISHMEN....WHO WERE TAKEN BY A SPANISH GUARDA-COSTA, IN THE JOHN AND JANE, EDWARD BURT MASTER

      London: C. Rivington, 1735. Rebacked, one corner repaired, others bumped. Old endpapers retained. Armorial book-plate of Viscount Hood on front pastedown. Viscount Henry Hood (1724-1816) was a British Admiral known for his service during the American War of Independence and the French Revolutionary War. He was a mentor to Horatio Nelson. The frontispiece fold-out map is present and intact, without tears or significant soiling. The map shows the path of the journey. The rambling title continues, "and set on shoar at a place called Porto-Cavalo, naked and wounded,....containing a variety of extraordinary distresses and adventures, and some new and useful discoveries of the inland of those almost unknown parts of America. An exact account of the manners, customs, and behaviour of the several Indians inhabiting the tract of land of 2400 miles, particularly of their dispositions toward the Spaniards and English". The final pages from 265-349 are "A Briefe Discoverye of Some Things Best Worth Noteinge in the Travels of Nicholas Withington, a Factor in the East-Indiase", printed in London in 1734 with a separate title-page. Three pages of adverts at the end. There was some early skepticism regarding the accuracy of the account, but most now think it was a truthful narrative. Outside observers and travellers seldom visited the area of Central America in the early 18th century. An excellent association piece for the collector of naval history as well as the book comes from the library of Viscount Hood. Cited in Sabin 14095, Field 336.. First Edition. Full Brown Calf. Light to Moderate Cover Wear/No Jacket. Octavo.

        Cérémonies et Coutumes Religieuses des Peuples Idolatres. Représentées par des figures dessinées de la main de Bernard Picart: avec une explication historique, & quelques dissertations curieuses ... les Peuples des Indes Occidentales

      Amsterdam: chez J. F. Bernard, 1735. Volume VI only (of 9), 2 parts in 1, folio. (15 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches). Title in red and black with engraved vignette, half-title. 1 engraved headpiece, 45 engraved plates (34 of the Americas, 11 of India [one of these folding]) by Picart, many after De Bry. Contemporary calf, covers with triple fillet gilt border, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, morocco lettering-pieces in the second and third compartments, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, red-stained edges (rear hinge starting). A fine copy of the volume dealing with the Americas and India from Picart&#39;s encyclopedic survey of the religious ceremonies and customs of the world. Picart&#39;s Ceremonies et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde was originally published in Amsterdam beginning in 1723. The demand was such that volumes were reprinted in 1735 (as in this copy) and again in 1739. The present volume concentrates on the Americas and India, and contains a series of beautifully engraved plates. These plates were adapted by Picart from various sources, but it is testament to Picart&#39;s artistry that in many cases he improved upon the orginals. The American section includes plates after the famous illustrations in De Bry&#39;s description of life in the Americas, with at least 11 of the 34 images based on the drawings of Jacques Le Moyne or John White. The second part, on India, includes a further 11 plates. Cf. Brunet I, 1743; cf. Sabin 62600 (1723 edition of this volume) & 4931 (the entire work).

      Venetiis, Sub signo Aldi, 1735. 1735 2 opere in un vol. in-4° (253x180mm), pp. (1), XX, 410; (1), 20; legatura ottocentesca in m. pelle e angoli con titolo e filetti dorati al dorso. Piatti marmorizzati blu. Al contropiatto, bell'ex-libris Charles Atwood. Antiporta incisa in rame con ritratto dell'autore. Frontespizio con àncora aldina e antica firma cancellata. Capilettera, testatine e cul-de-lampe ornati in silografia. Varie dedicatorie, tra cui una dell'Alpino a Jacopo Foscareno, Gerolamo Capello e Giovanni Delfino, e una di Domenico Tabacco a Ludovico Rangoni. É riportata la prefazione di Hermann Boerhaave, ricavata dall'edizione del 1710 di Leida. Usuali fioriture. Segue: GIROLAMO FRACASTORO, "De diebus criticis. Libellus", Venetiis, sub signo Aldi,1735. Rara imitazione aldina. Il trattato, uno dei più noti dell'Alpino, dedicato allo studio della sintomatologia medica, apparve per la prima volta a Francoforte nel 1601 e consiste in un'ingegnosa compilazione attinta a fonti ippocratiche e galeniche. L'Alpino (Marostica, 1553-Padova, 1617), fu medico e botanico eruditissimo, professore a Padova; frutto dei suoi tre anni di soggiorno egiziano al Cairo (dove aveva seguito il patrizio veneto Giorgio Emo) furono il "De Medicina Aegyptiorum" e il "De Plantis Aegyptii", in cui si disserta del caffé (fu il primo in Europa a parlarne scientificamente) dei balsami, del papiro. Il trattato del Fracastoro che fa seguito a quello dell'Alpino apparve nel 1538 a Venezia e consiste in un serrato attacco alla medicina dogmatica e alla credenza dell'azione diretta degli astri come causa delle malattie.

        Poesie Sacre drammatiche di Apostolo Zeno istorico e poeta cesareo, cantante nella imperial cappella di Vienna.

      IN VENEZIA: PRESSO CRISTOFORO ZANE, 1735 1735 In Venezia: presso Cristoforo Zane, 1735 In-4 (20) 506 (2) (1) c. (di tav. incisa a piena pag.) al frontespizio vignetta calcografica, testatina e capolettera figurato alla dedica. Piena pergamena, caratteri dorati al dorso. Ex.libris Franz Pollack-Parnau. Collazionatoe completo.Prima edizione della raccolta (Sisara; Tobia; Naaman; Giuseppe; David; Le profezie evangeliche d'Isaia; Gioaz; Il Batista; Gionata; Nabot; Daniello; David umiliato; Sedecia; La Gerusalemme convertita; San Pietro in Cesarea; Gesu presentato nel tempio) dei maggiori drammi sacri dell'erudito veneziano considerato il il creatore dell'"Oratorio" moderno, cui diede unità d'azione, di tempo e di luogo. Apostolo Zeno (Venezia, 11 dicembre 1668; Venezia, 11 novembre 1750) è stato un poeta, librettista, giornalista e letterato italiano. Nobile veneziano, fu nel 1691 tra i fondatori dell'Accademia degli Animosi. Nel 1695 compone il primo libretto d'opera, Gl'inganni felici, che ottiene un grande successo rendendolo librettista alla moda. Dal 1705 collabora con Pietro Pariati, riservandosi le scene teatrali e lasciando al Pariati la composizione dei libretti. Iniziò l'attività di giornalista letterario nella Galleria di Minerva, assumendone poi anche funzioni direttive ma ne prese le distanze quando si rese conto di non essere riuscito a darle l'impronta desiderata, tanto che finì col definirla una scempiaggine. Nel 1710 insieme al fratello Pier Caterino Zeno, Scipione Maffei e Antonio Vallisneri fondò il Giornale de' letterati d'Italia, sostenendo che era necessario che gli italiani si facessero essi il loro giornale? palesando che il buon senso, la dottrina e l'ingegno non vennero mai tra noi e che ora più mai fioriscono e s?avvivano. Il trimestrale ebbe collaboratori di prestigio come Scipione Maffei, Antonio Vallisneri, Eustachio Manfredi, Ludovico Antonio Muratori, Giovanni Battista Morgagni, Giambattista Vico, Bernardino Ramazzini: mosso soprattutto dalla volontà di giovare agli studi italiani, ebbe un buon successo. Chiamato Apostolo Zeno all'incarico di poeta cesareo alla corte imperiale di Vienna, nel 1718, il fratello Pier Caterino ne assunse la direzione fino al 1732 e ne rese annuale la periodicità. A Vienna rimase fino al 1729, quando gli subentrò Pietro Metastasio. Tornato a Venezia, si dedicò soprattutto a opere di erudizione e alla numismatica. Compose 36 libretti d'opera d'argomento storico e mitologico, fra i quali Gli inganni felici, 1695, Faramondo, 1698, Lucio Vero, 1700, Merope, 1711, Alessandro Severo, 1716, Griselda, 1718, Teuzzone, 1719, Semiramide, 1725, e 17 azioni sacre per oratori. Fra le opere letterarie, le Dissertazioni vossiane sono delle aggiunte e correzioni al De historicis latinis del Voss, mentre furono pubblicate postume le sue Annotazioni alla Biblioteca della eloquenza italiana di Giusto Fontanini. Ampio è il suo Epistolario.

        Recens Edita totius Novi Belgii, in America Septenrionali siti, delineatio cura et sumptibus

      La carta geografica del Seutter sul New England si basa sulle precedenti mappe di Janssonius e Visscher. A differenza delle precedenti, la carta del Setter è la prima che presenta i confini, delineati a stampa, tra Massachusetts, New England, New York, New Jersey e Pennsylvania, che precedentemente erano lasciati alla mano approssimativa del colorista. La mappa si distingue per il grande ed elaborato cartiglio che oltre alla veduta di New York, raffigura gli indigeni che portano doni e tributi al re d?Inghilterra. La veduta di New York, intitolata ?Neu Jorck sive Neu Amsterdam?, rimpiazza la veduta di ?Restituito? presente nelle carte del Janssonius e del Visscher. Questa edizione reca l?indirizzo di Tobias Conrad Lotter, erede della tipografia Seutter, ed è stampata circa nel 1757. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura coeva restauro al margine superiore destro, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Tooley, The Mapping of America, p. 292, 26a. Dimensioni 580x500. Seutter?s version of the famous Jansson/Visscher map of New England, originally published in 1730, was the first in the series to have printed lines showing the boundaries between Massachusetts, New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Previously these divisions had been left to the colorist, who improvised boundaries by tinting the different provinces. The Seutter map is distinguished by a large and elaborate cartouche over the inset view of New York, which depicts natives and gods presenting tribute to a seated English monarch, most likely George II. Seutter replaces the Restitutio view of New York City with a new view of New York entitled Neu Jorck sive Neu Amsterdam, with a key to the view in Latin. This edition was published after Seutter?s death in 1757 by his son-in-law Tobias Conrad Lotter. Copper engraving, beautiful contemporary hand colour, upper right margin repaired, otherwise in excellent condition. ref:Tooley, The Mapping of America, #26a, p. 292. Augsburg Augsburg Tooley, The Mapping of America, p. 292, 26a. Dimensioni 580x500.

        Le Roman de la Rose. Revu sur plusieurs Editions & sur quelques anciens Manuscrits. Accompagné de plusieurs Ouvrages, d'une Preface historique, de Notes & d'un Glossaire..

      Amsterdam, ean Fred. Bernard, 1735. 1735 3 volumi in -12, pp. LXVIII - 362; (2) 424; (2)384. Leg. dell'epoca piena pelle, dorsi a nervetti con titoli e fregi oro (piccolo difetto ad una cuffia). Tagli decorati a spruzzo. Buon esemplare. Edizione curata da Lenglet-Dufresnoy, che riporta anche la prefazione di Clément Marot, che accompagnava le edizioni del 1527, 1529 e 1537. Questa edizione contiene anche: "Vie de Jean Clopinel dit de Meung" di André Thevet, "Le Codicile de Maistre Jean de Meung", "Le Testament de Maistre Jean de Meung", "Le Remontrances de Nature a l'Alchimiste Errant", "La Response de l'Alchimiste, a Nature", "Testament attribué a Arnauld de Villeneuve", "Petit Traicté d'Alchymie intitulé Le Sommaire Philosophique de Nicolas Flamel", "La Fontaine des Amoureux de Science, par Jean de La Fontaine de Valenciennes, e la " Balade du Secret des Philosophes. "Le Roman de la Rose" fu composto da Guillaume de Lorris tra il 1225 e il 1230, e poi da Jehan Clopinel de Meung che lo continuò a partire dal 1269 per terminarlo verso il 1278. Si tratta dell'arte di amare, espressa attraverso un sogno ricco di simboli dove si narra della conquista, in un giardino strettamente sorvegliato, di una rosa contenuta in un vaso di cristallo, nascosto all'interno di una fontana. Secondo gli studiosi dell'arte Alchemica, nella parte composta da Clopinel sono nascoste le chiavi dei misteri della filosofia ermetica (novanta versi sono dedicati all'Alchimia). Jehan de Meung credeva alla possibilità della trasmutazione e questo interesse gli provocò una reputazione di Alchimista. Ancora all'inizio del XVI sec. Bernard Palissy, uno dei più illustri scienziati del tempo, non esitava ad associare il nome di Jehan de Meung a quello di Geber e Arnaldo da Villanova. Cfr. Caillet, 6802; Dorbon-Ainé, 2760.

        Two Silver Pheasants and a Black-crowned Night Heron in a landscape.

      Signed and dated, lower right W V ROYEN 1735, also dated lower left: 1735, inscribed in brown ink on verso: 'dese vogels sijn bij d: edl: aghtb: Heer de Heer Theodorus deLeeuw/ na het Leven getekent inde Lust plaas van sijn edelen genaamt/ elsenburg door Mr Willem van Rojen 1735. Watercolour and gouache over traces of black chalk within black chalk framing lines. 303 by 436mm. As the inscription on the verso records, these birds were seen by Van Royen in the collection of the eminent Amsterdam merchant, Theodorus de Leeuw (1679-1744), at his country house of Elsenburg, on the river Vecht, near Maarssen. De Leeuw lavished considerable resources on improvements to this rural retreat, and seems to have commissioned Daniel Marot to design an elaborate summerhouse in the grounds (for further information, see R. van Luttervelt, 'De Buitenplaatsen aan de Vecht' 1948, pp. 100-2). Another watercolour of birds by Van Royen (sold, Dordrecht, Mak, 5 October 1993, lot 37) is also dated 1735 and inscribed with the name of De Leeuw, and there is also an 18th century sale record of a painting by Royen of birds on the terraces of Elsenburg (sold, Amsterdam, P. van der Schley/ J. Yver, 18 July 1786, lot 277). Together these are the only three known examples of the works by Van Royen that can be linked with a specific patron. Relatively few drawings of Van Royen are known, but these include dated works from as early as 1711 (sold, London, Sotheby's, 19 June 1973, lot 62), which stand as important precursors of the bird watercolours of Aert Schouman and the younger generation of Dutch artists. Exhibited: Leeuwarden, Museum Het Princessehof, 'Oude tekeningen uit drie eeuwen; Collectie Hans van Leeuwen', 1977, cat. no 46; Amsterdam/ Dordrecht 1994-5, cat. no. 42, reproduced in colour p. 6.

        Pistoia.

      Augsburg, 1735 - 1740 circa. Incisione in rame (due lastre stampate su due fogli di carta originariamente uniti), colore, cm 35 x 100 (alla battuta della lastra), titolo entro festone in alto al centro, 25 didascalie, unico nome presente: F. B. Werner del. C. L. S. A. R. Gran Duca di Toscana e, pi? sotto, Haered: Ier: Wolffy exc: Aug Vind., entrambi in lastra in bs. a ds. Alcune incisioni databili tutte nella prima met? del settecento, si contendono la priorit? di una veduta dal mare o da terra, il pi? possibile rappresentativa del nuovo centro urbano, come si era venuto ormai delineando un secolo prima. E il capostipite di tale veduta ? appunto quella di Georg Balthasar Probst (1673 - 1750), uno dei maggiori editori tedeschi di stampe nella prima met? del '700, in qualit? di erede di Jeremias Wolff (1663 - 1724): la sua officina produsse incisioni di ogni genere fra cui le vedute ottiche e le grandi vedute di citt? europee, ormai difficilmente reperibili sul mercato antiquario, considerata la misura e di conseguenza il numero limitato di esemplari tirati. La veduta, edita nel 1730, su disegno di Frederich Bernard Werner (1690 - 1778), costituisce un fondamentale capostipite per una rinnovata percezione della citt?, in senso pi? monumentale che descrittivo - topografico, presentando infatti un modello iconografico di scarsa affidabilit? architettonica, ed esprimendosi in chiaro stile nordico, con una selva di cupole, campanili e altissime antenne che si concludono con coperture a profilo concavo, come le tipiche coperture delle citt? mitteleuropee. Ne esce un ritratto urbano in due rami che copre un ampio arco, dai Capuccini a Porta Fiorentina, a documento di una delle pi? grandi vedute della citt?. Avendo scelto un punto di vista piuttosto basso, l'artista ? indotto a esagerare le altezze degli edifici, soprattutto di cupole e campanili, raggiungendo un effetto assai singolare e vivace di esasperazione verticale. Una scelta che peraltro risponde al particolare linguaggio del momento. A questa serie di vedute si ispirer? poco dopo Johann C. Haffner (1668-1754), incisore ed editore attivo a Vienna. Stretti margini e coloritura posteriore ma buon esemplare di questa importante veduta prospettica della citt? di Pistoia.

Single gilt line-border to boards, inside which a lovely blindstamped ornamental border to one side. All edges of boards with blindstamped ornamentations.

Macclesfield copy, with the armorial bookplate of Earls of Macclesfield to pasted down front end-paper and Shirburn Castle (seat of the Earls of Macclesfield) armorial blindstamp to first four leaves Ex-libris. A lovely, clean, and crisp copy. IV, 48 + (2), 92 pp.. Exceedingly scarce first edition of Morris' book of tables for renewing and purchasing leases in relation to age, being the most accurate and comprehensive list of tables published at the time. The work was considered controversial due to the proposed fall in rent in relation to age, which was seen as a discrimination of young people; a concept which today has been implemented in virtually all aspects of banking and insurance. "As late as 1735, Gael Morris, a writer of commercial manuals on annuities and leases, explained that annuities could frequently be purchased cheaper on lives aged between 30 and 40 than on lives under 25 because 'the Hazards of Persons between 15 and 25 are so many' - a conclusion making some intuitive sense but strictly at odds with the lessons taught by Halley's table. There seems to have existed, in short, a deep reluctance to embrace the discovery that the value of annuities and land leases made for the duration of a life (or lives) varied predictably with the age(s) of the lessee(s)." (Clark, Betting On Lives: The Culture of Life Insurance in England, 1695-1775, p. 116).Gael Morris worked as a mathematician and astronomer and was the assistant of British astronomer James Bradley for several years, where he helped to compute tables of planetary orbits.The work is of the utmost scarcity, with only five copies listed on OCLC (two in the US) and merely one copy listed at auction within the last 40 years (being this copy).

First published in French in 1710. It is the only larger philosophical work, Leibnitz himself published and it is a work of immense importance to philosophy, theology and mathematics. In this work Leibniz represents his excellent calculating machine, which has served as the basis for what we now call a computer, as he presents the binary arithmetic, "Rechnen mit Null und Eins" ("calculating with zero and one") in the Beylage (p. 926), which forms the basis for the much later developed computer science (see PMM 177). This work contains "Anmerkungen" by Richter and "Lebens=Beschreibung" by Fontenelle, followed by "Beylage". In these "Beylage" we find the method of converting numbers into the binary system, which here is said to be "etwas recht neues, welches der Herr Leibnitz zu Hanover erfunden" ("something brand new, which Mr. Leibnitz von Hanover has discovered") as well as "Eine Schrift. In welcher klar gezeiget wird/ dass nicht Herr Neuton,sondern der Herr von Leibnitz Erfinder des CALCULI DIFFERENTIALIS sey." (A Treatise. In which it is clearly shown/ that Mr. Leibniz and not Mr. Newton is the inventor of the CALCULI DIFFERENTIALIS").All early editions of the Theodicee are rare. See D.S.B.: VIII, pp. 161-166

      Lugduni Batavorum: Gerardum Potvliet, 1735. Hardcover. Some mold spotting to the rear board which lightly affects a few of the rear pages. A little wrinkling to the pages but generally a clean copy with crisp plates. Near Fine. Small quarto (6" x 8") in contemporary vellum. Two volumes bound in one. Illustrated with 102 copper-engraved plates of animals and plants. RERUM AEGYPTIARUM [xx], 248, (12) pages. PLANTIS AEGYPTI [viii], 306, [24] pages. Two plates from part one misbound in the second, plant part, but it makes sense since these are botanical plates. (Hunt 164, Nissen 20 for Plantis Aegypti). This work combines two of Alpinusís major contributions from his exploration to Egypt as physician and avid naturalist. The first part of this work is published here for the first time and is often referred to as Rerum AEgyptiarum. Alpinus had received his training in medicine at Padua and eventually became director of the Botanical Garden. His meticulous and copious notes and collections that he made wherever he touched ground during his travels to and in Egypt resulted in a number of publications. This is the third, which deals with botany as well as natural history of animals. Although the botanical information here, the first scientific study of Egyptian plants, was first published in 1592, the present posthumous work has been supplemented with notes and observations of Veslingi.

        [Beaux illustrés du XVIIIe & Les Classiques] Les oeuvres de Monsieur de Moliere

      A La Haye: Chez J. M. Husson, 1735. relié. 4 tomes en 4 Vol. in 12 (7,5x14,3cm). Nouvelle édition collective, après la première complète parue en 1682. Elle est illustrée d&#39;un portrait et de 33 figures (une par pièce en frontispice) par Punt ; ces figures sont légendées et sont la réduction des figures de Boucher (in 4) parues dans la célèbre édition de luxe de 1734. Les figures de Punt portent la date de 1738 ou 1739. Pages de titre en rouge et noir. Plein Veau glacé marbré d&#39;époque. Dos à nerfs orné de caissons contenant un semi d&#39;étoiles autour d&#39;un soleil avec fleurs de lys angulaires. Roulette en queue. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, et de tomaison en maroquin brun. Coiffe de tête du tome III en partie élimée. Manque en tête du tome II. Manque en queue du tome I. Coins émoussés. Charmant exemplaire, présentant quelques défauts mineurs. Cette édition semble bien être la première à avoir utilisé les figures de Boucher réduites, elle suit par ailleurs d&#39;un an la fameuse édition in 4, et se trouve plutôt bien imprimée. Ces figures réduites seront utilisées par plusieurs éditions plus tardives notamment celle de 1765, comprenant les notes de Voltaire. La vie de Molière comprend une centaine de page, imprimée en petits caractères. Cette édition contient les deux versions de la princesse d&#39;Elide, dont l&#39;une tout en vers a été terminée par un autre auteur. A la fin du quatrième volume sont placées divers extraits d&#39;auteurs ayant écrit sur Molière. C&#39;est une des seules éditions, et peut-être la seule en 4 volumes et non en 6 ou plus généralement en 8, l&#39;une des causes en est le papier utilisé, plus fin, et la typographie. - Chez J. M.
