        Le Spectacle de la Nature

      Paris -la Veuve Esitenne and JeanDesaint, 1735 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifully illustrated copy of this popular work of natural history. In three volumes. Volume I contains the Premiere Partie and is a third edition with an illustration to frontispiece and 23 further plates, 14 of which are folding. Volume II contains the Seconde Partie, is a Nouvelle edition and contains a frontispiece plus 34 folding plates. Volume III contains the rest of the Seconde Partie and is also a Nouvelle edition. It has a frontispiece followed by a half title and title page, and 32 plates, 31 of which are folding. The engraved plates depict a wide variety of subjects, including butterflies, sea creatures, plants and flowers, machinery, maps and scientific diagrams. Noel-Antoine Pluche (13 November 1688 19 November 1761), known as the abbe Pluche, was a French priest best-known for this work. Pluche, son of a baker, was born in Rheims, in a street now named after him. He became a teacher of rhetoric. The Bishop of Laon made him head of the town&#39;s college, a post he accepted to escape judicial consequences of opposing the papal bull Unigenitus (1713). He withdrew in 1749 to La Varenne-Saint-Maur, near Paris, where he died. His Spectacle de la Nature was published in 1732, and widely translated all over Europe. Although it influenced many to become naturalists, it was a work of popularisation, not of science. With a previous owner&#39;s inscription to each front free endpaper of one John Brooke. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally, sound with shelfwear and cracking to five joints. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean but with creasing and curling to many of the fold-out plates. Overall: GOOD.

        Traité de l'opinion, ou memoires pour servir a l'histoire de l'esprit humaine.

      Pitteri,, A Venise, 1735 - Due volumi legati in uno di cm. 26, pp. xvi, 703 (1); 440. Marchi xilografici ai frontespizi, testatine, capolettera incisi e 4 belle incisioni nel testo. Solida legatura ottocentesca in mezza pergamena con titoli ms. al dorso. Bell'esemplare, a pieni margini. Si tratta dell'edizione in formato maggiore di quest'opera stampata originariamente nel 1733 (sei volumi in ottavo). L'autore, noto anche come il Marchese di St. Aubin, ebbe l'idea di scrivere quest'opera seguendo il desiderio che Pascal esprimeva di leggere il libro italiano "Della opinione regina del mondo". La divisione in sei libri permette all'autore di ".passare successivamente in rassegna le varie rivoluzioni subite dalle lettere, la filosofia e le scienze. Intraprende d'indicare l'influenza dell'opinione sulla cultura delle scienze, stimate in un secolo e trascurate e anche disprezzate in altri; fa vedere le contraddizioni nelle quali caddero i più grandi uomini; dipinge le loro meschine contese, i loro pregiudizi e le loro debolezze." cfr.

      Oxonii [Oxford]: E theatro Sheldoniano, MDCCXXXV [1735]. Fine. The Anabasis and the Agesilaus [&#39;Xenophontos logos eis Agesilaon ton basilea&#39;], with separate pagination and title pages, edited by Thomas Hutchinson and printed at the Sheldonian Theatre (forerunner of the Oxford University Press). The first five words of the title are transliterated from the Greek. 4to: [10],XL,[2],662;[10],96pp, with copper-engraved frontispiece by Gravelot, folding map and woodcut tailpieces. Greek text with a Latin translation. Bound in period calf boards, beautifully rebacked to style, spine in six compartments separated by raised bands ruled in gilt, each with separate central gilt ornament; title and date stamped in gilt.

A Fine copy of one of the foundation works of Western civilization, the binding secure and tight, pages and plates exceptionally fresh, clean and bright with wide margins. Occasional marginal note in a neat script, in light, erasable pencil. Provenance: engraved bookplate (arms on urn) of William Downes, likely 1st Baron Downes (1751-1826), one of the leading Irish judges of his time. ESTC Citation No. T139182. & The Greek term anabasis denotes an expedition from a country&#39;s coastline to its interior, and in the Greek philosopher-soldier Xenophon&#39;s account refers to the march of Cyrus the Younger from Ionia, on the eastern coast of the Aegean Sea, to the interior of Asia Minor and Mesopotamia (though most of Xenophon&#39;s narrative is taken up with the return march from Babylon to the coast of the Black Sea). Cyrus and his Ten Thousand, an army of Greek mercenaries, intended to seize the throne of Persia from Cyrus&#39;s brother, Artaxerxes II. Though Cyrus&#39;s army fought to victory at Cunaxa, in Babylon, Cyrus himself was killed. Stranded deep in enemy territory, Xenophon, one of three remaining leaders, exhorted the Greek army to march north through snow-filled mountain passes toward the Black Sea and its Greek shoreline cities. Logos eis Agesilaon, the second work, celebrates the life of Agesilaus II, king of Sparta (444-360 BC), under whom Xenophon fought against his fellow Athenians. N. B.

        Parlamento avuto à Popoli di Corsica nel Congresso tenuto in Corte. Presidente della Suprema Consulta di quel Regno

      Naples or Livorno?, 1735. Soft cover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Bound n contemporary wrappers.. Some staining and wear, but generally good. Exceedingly rare first edition of Corsica&#39;s first constitution, written by the independence leader Giacinto Paoli. As one of the earliest - if not the first - nations in modern history to employ a democratic constitution, Corsica&#39;s struggle for independence gripped the attention of major figures across Europe: Rousseau championed its cause in Le contrat social (1762), while Boswell, encouraged by Rousseau, famously visited Corsica and wrote admiringly of Giacinto Paoli and his son Pasquale in his Account of Corsica (Glasgow, 1768). Voltaire and Frederick the Great of Prussia were also vocal supporters. By the 1720s, Corsica had been under Genoese control for almost 400 years. The situation came to a head when, in 1729, a bad harvest prompted the villagers of Bozio to refuse to pay their taxes and to expel the Genoese. Word spread, and other villagers took action. The struggle for independence was underway. In January 1731 a traditional Corsican decision-making assembly (consulta) gathered in Corte and proclaimed Corsica&#39;s freedom from Genoese rule. Genoa quickly appealed to Charles VI for help, and his troops made the Corsicans sue for a settlement in 1732. But the rebellion broke out again as soon as the imperial troops had left, and it was this resurgence that culminated in the seminal consulta of 1735. This meeting saw Giacinto Paoli appointed one of the island&#39;s three leaders, Corsica&#39;s first attempt to organize on the national level, and a new declaration of independence from Genoa, which in turn prompted Paoli&#39;s historical codification of Corsica&#39;s fundamental principles in the present constitution, which grants sovereignty to the people and endorses the separation of powers. Although it would be superceded in 1755, the present document thus counts among the first-if not the first-democratic constitution in modern history. While Rousseau drafted his own constitution for the island in 1765, it was the young law graduate James Boswell who would become the most vocal champion for Corsican democracy. Following his visit to the island and his meeting with Pasquale Paoli (the son and heir to General Giacinto&#39;s fame), Boswell&#39;s Account of Corsica. and Memoirs of Pascal Paoli portrayed Corsican society in all its Rousseauean primitive simplicity and held up Pasquale as a classical popular hero. Boswell&#39;s work remains an important source for the history of the Corsican struggle for independence, which would finally be quashed by the French annexation of the island in 1769. Dedicating the book to Pasquale, Boswell called his father "a man of learning, religion and bravery; well-qualified to serve his country, either in politicks, or in war," (pp 94-5), and even reproduces a sonnet by Giacinto celebrating victory over the Genoese, with an English translation. * The present document may correspond to OCLC: 661153036 (1 copy at the BnF, no collation given). It is unrecorded on ICCU, although we have been able to confirm one Italian holding of this first edition, in the Archivio di Stato in Turin. The Biblioteca Universitaria of Bologna and the Biblioteca Comunale of Pescia have manuscript versions of the document. With thanks to Antoine-Marie Graziani for this information, and for his expert opinion on the present work&#39;s place of publication, which notwithstanding the Corsican imprint, was most likely published on the Italian mainland, whether in Naples or Livorno.

        The Aphorisms of Hippocrates, and the Sentences of Celsus, with Explanations and References to the most considerable Writers in Physick and Philosophy both Ancient and Modern

      London - R. Wilkin, F. and F. Bonwick, 1735 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A fascinating and early investigation into the philosophy and practises of Hippocrates and Celsus. Second edition. To which are added Aphorisms Upon several Distempers, not well distinguished by the Ancients. Featuring one of the original two, engraved plate of Celsus, by M. V. Grucht, and decorative head and tail pieces, with illuminated capitals. Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician of the Age of Pericles, and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. He is referred to as the father of Western medicine in recognition of his lasting contributions to the field as the founder of the Hippocratic School of Medicine. This intellectual school revolutionised medicine in ancient Greece, establishing it as a discipline distinct from other fields that it had traditionally been associated with (notably theurgy and philosophy), thus establishing medicine as a profession. With printed transcriptsfrom victorian surgeons and physicians loosely inserted, discussing the nowbanned remedy, Bromidia. Edited and compiled by Sir Conrad Sprengell, M. D. member of the College of Physicians, and fellow of the Royal Society. Condition: With original calf binding, but with detached boards, making it disbound though with boards present. Externally, both boards are detached, and spine is cracked with loss to spine label. Boards are a trifle rubbed with wear to extremities. Internally, binding has failed in places,due to cracked spine,although mostly firmly bound to the text block edge. Bright but with instances of foxing throughout, and instances of past worming. Copperplate ink annotated notes to pages 412 through to 414. Bookplate to the front pastedown. Overall: FAIR..

        The chace. A poem. By William Somervile, Esq

      London: Printed for G. Hawkins, and sold by T. Cooper at the Globe in Pater-Noster-Row, MDCCXXV [1735]. First Edition. Full Calf. Near Fine. 4to: [12],106,[2]pp, with frontispiece by Scotin after Gravelot of Apollo receiving his lyre and Diana, goddess of the hunt. Contemporary full mottled calf, spine in six compartments gilt, red morocco lettering piece gilt. An excellent, wide-margined copy, collated and complete, expertly recornered, joints skillfully reinforced, head caps rebuilt. Very minor worming to rear end papers and a few adjacent pages, far from any text, with most pages bright and fresh. Printed by William Bowyer, whose records show 750 copies produced. Provenance: engraved armorial bookplate of John West, first Earl De La Warr (1693&#150;1766), to front paste down, and on the front fly leaf the engraved bookplate of the dukes of Gloucester with the order of the garter motto, &#39;Honi Soit qui Mal Y Pense,&#39; surmounted by a crown. Foxon S562. According to the ODNB, Somervile had two major interests, writing poetry and the hunting. Both were united in this, his major work, comprising four books of Miltonic blank verse through which he conveyed the excitement and dangers of the hunt. The poem also traces the history of hunting up to the Norman Conquest and provides all manner of incidental information on kennel design; hare, stag, and otter hunting; the breeding and training of dogs, and dog diseases and bites. It&#39;s interesting to speculate on West&#39;s association with Somervile, who dedicated this, his major work, to Frederick, prince of Wales. In March,1736, West was sent to Saxe-Gotha to accompany Princess Augusta to England, where she was to become Frederick&#39;s consort. &

Together with All the Rules of the Said Courts Brought Down to the Year 1719. The Second Edition. In Which are Comprized the Rules of the Respective Courts, Brought Down to This Present Year of 1735, and Likewise (Under Their Several Heads) All the Cases Reported Since the Publication of the Former ed. To Which are Added, Two Tables; One of the Several Acts of Parliament Mention&#39;d and Explain&#39;d throughout This Whole Work; The Other, Of the Names of the Several Heads Contained in Each Volume.

Contemporary calf with later rebacking, raised bands and lettering pieces to spines, corners mended, endpapers renewed. Moderate rubbing and scuffing to boards, front hinges starting. Faint dampspotting and soiling to some leaves, interior otherwise fresh. Ex-library. Stamps to preliminaries of both volumes. A solid copy. * Second edition. Based on Styles&#39;s Regestrum Practicale (1657) and a standard reference during the eighteenth century, Lilly&#39;s Register was first published in 1719. After this edition it was issued again in 1745 with a supplement "containing the rules to Michaelmas Term, 1744, and containing Acts of Parliament and cases." It is divided into two parts. The first deals with conveyances. (The information is arranged under 36 alphabetical headings from "Assignments" to "Uses."). The second is a collection of precedents. As Holdsworth points out, "they are a varied collection, since they include, besides the ordinary conveyances of interests in real property, a settlement of stock, the assignment of a debt, compositions with creditors, an agreement between a high-sheriff and his under-sheriff, and agreement between a bishop&#39;s register and his deputy, and even a precedent for a private act of Parliament for the settlement of an estate.": Holdsworth, A History of English Law XII:376.

      Dublin: Printed by and for Samuel Fuller, at the Globe in Meath-Street, 1735. (IRELAND) 15 x 9-1/2 inches. Printed on recto of a single sheet. Extensively repaired, loss of a few letters at fold. Matted. Bristol B974 (American printing); ESTCW34563 (American printing) .

Bristol and ESTC record a (presumed) Philadelphia printing of this same broadside, which was found bound in the New York Historical Society&#39;s copy of Franklin&#39;s Pennsylvania Gazette for 1735-6 -- but ESTC does not record this Dublin printing of 1735.

[Bound with:] Thomas SMITH, of Derby (d. 1767). Eight of the most extraordinary Prospects in the Mountainous Parts of Derbyshire and Staffordshire commonly called the Peak and the Moorlands. [No place of publication: plates dated March-August 1743]. Titled beneath the image of the first plate. 8 etched or engraved double- page plates by Benoist, Vivares, Scotin and others after Smith (subjects include: Dovedale (2), River Manyfold at Wetton, Matlock Bath (2), River Wye (2), Castleton). [And:] A collection of 10 other topographical views (6 double-page after Smith: one of Haddon Hall, one of Chatsworth and 4 of views on the rivers Trent and Derwent; 2 after W. Oram of Catterick Bridge on the River Swale and Knaresborough on the Nidd; 2 double-page of the Giant&#39;s Causeway after Drury). Folio (21 x 15 ½ inches), mounted on guards throughout. Contemporary mottled calf gilt, covers with wide decorative border of fillets and roll-tools with various motifs including birds and bees, spine in seven sections, red morocco lettering-piece in one, the others tooled in gilt (joints weak, spine chipped at head and foot).

The first work is on Houghton Hall in Norfolk which was built for Sir Robert Walpole from Ripley&#39;s designs, the interior detailing shown in the present work was designed by William Kent: the designs for the plaster ceilings were carried out by Italian craftsmen, with gilded and painted ornament; the walls are dressed with classical plinth, pilasters, and frieze; and pedimented chimneypieces contain bas-relief panels above the mantelpiece. As a whole the present collection is in fine condition with wide margins and clearly bound at the time of publication. First work: Harris 911.

        Historia Tragico-Maritima

      Lisbon,, 1735.. Two volumes, small quarto, woodcut vignettes on the divisional titles; a few light stains, owner's stamp on titles; an excellent copy in the original marbled sheep, spines gilt, double labels; slight wear to both spines at head. First edition of one of the classics of the sea. The Gomes de Brito collection of shipwreck narratives is often cited as giving the most convincing impression of what life at sea might actually have been like in the sixteenth century, with a tremendous depiction of the terrors of extreme weather and imperfect vessels at sea, mixed with the ready superstition of sailors, quicker to religious emblems than to lifeboats.The collection contains twelve narratives of Portuguese shipwrecks and other maritime disasters from the loss of the Sao Joao in 1552 down to the capture of the Santiago by the Dutch off Saint Helena in 1602; the work is complete as it stands, although a volume with later accounts, issued clandestinely by an unidentified publisher, sometimes accompanies these two original volumes.This is "the great prose epic on the subject of shipwrecks... a moving tribute to a great race of seamen... it was a long time before these tragic tales of the sea achieved recognition as literary masterpieces... The original relations were either the work of survivors or were compiled by contemporary writers from their accounts. They are as a rule movingly and graphically written, if not always as grammatically as could be wished..." (Penrose)."Written almost invariably with the utmost frankness, these narratives bring vividly before us the dangers and discomforts of life aboard the crowded East-India carracks... They give us the seamy side of the Portuguese "conquest, navigation, and commerce", the obverse of which is so majestically perpetuated in the 'Decades' of Joao de Barros and the 'Lusiadas' of Luis de Camoes..." (C.R. Boxer, The Tragic History of the Sea, Hakluyt Society, 1959).Borba de Moraes, p. 125; James Ford Bell, B540; Mendelssohn (1979) II, p. 368; Silva, 413.

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>

      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.

After escaping from jail in San Pedro Sula, they crossed the Isthmus to San Salvador and thence traveled to Panama overland ...

        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).

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.

(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.
