        La Vie de Marianne ou les Avantures de Madame la Comtesse de *** EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris,|La Haye: Chez Prault / Chez Gosse et Neaulme, 1736. Fine. Chez Prault / Chez Gosse et Neaulme, Paris, La Haye 1736-1742, 4 volumes in-12 (9,5x16,5cm), (12) 95pp. (8) 98pp. (6) 140pp. et 126pp. (2) 130pp. (2) 120pp. (4) et 144pp. 132pp. (4) 168pp. et (4) 122pp. (2) 106pp. (4) 91pp., 12 parties reliées en quatre volumes. - Original Edition for Part 3 to 12, parts one and two in the second edition, but have the same number as the original. Some titles are without place or address Neaulme Rare meeting of different parts in uniform binding Different parts seem to have appeared simultaneously in Paris and Holland..; so there was a Parisian original edition, and Dutch. Our copy combines the two runs. Binders in full sheepskin blonde then. Back smooth decorated with parts of title and volume number of red morocco, flower boxes and small golden chains, golden lace bird tail. All edges gilt. Eight bumped corners and a few tiny scuffs. Marginal tear without lack on page 23 of Part IX. Unfinished Marivaux, like his other novel, Le Paysan parvenu, but probably for the incompletion by its very nature, Marianne is one of the first novels published in serial. Marivaux almost abandon the company several times, although the success of the novel was considerable. Emblematic work of the eighteenth, the book borrows from all genres in vogue: novel of manners, learning novel, picaresque and adventure. Marianne, Countess, y tale by letters adventure of his life, or how, received nothing, she will climb the social ladder. It is also known as Marivaux had to stop at the eighth game, but for editorial reasons, he wrote other stories to give away. Only the twelfth part is not Marivaux. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale pour les parties 3 à 12, première et deuxième parties en seconde édition mais présentent la même pagination que l'originale. Certains titres sont sans lieu ou à l'adresse de Neaulme. Rare réunion des différentes parties en reliure uniforme. Les différentes parties semblent avoir paru en même temps à Paris et en Hollande ; il y a donc une édition originale parisienne, et une hollandaise. Notre exemplaire mêle les deux tirages. Reliures en pleine basane blonde de l'époque. Dos lisses ornés de pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge, caissons et petits fers floraux dorés, dentelles dorées à l'oiseau en queue. Toutes tranches dorées. Huit coins émoussés et quelques infimes épidermures. Une déchirure marginale sans manque à la page 23 de la neuvième partie. Œuvre inachevée de Marivaux, tout comme son autre roman, Le paysan parvenu, mais sans doute destinée à l'inachèvement de par son caractère même, Marianne est l'un des tout premiers romans à paraître en feuilleton. Marivaux faillit en abandonner l'entreprise plusieurs fois, bien que le succès du roman fut considérable. Œuvre emblématique du XVIIIème, l'ouvrage emprunte à tous les genres alors en vogue : roman de mœurs, roman d'apprentissage, roman picaresque et d'aventure. Marianne, comtesse, y conte par lettres l'aventure de sa vie, ou, comment, parvenue de rien, elle grimpera les échelons sociaux. On sait par ailleurs que Marivaux comptait s'arrêter à cette huitième partie, mais que pour des raisons éditoriales, il composa d'autres histoires pour donner une suite. Seule la douzième partie n'est pas de Marivaux.

        Liberty. A Poem [Comprising: Antient and Modern Italy Compared; Greece; Rome; Britain; The Prospect]

      London: A. Millar, 1736. First edition, regular paper issue with prices printed on title-leaves. viii, 37, [3]; [6], [9]-42; [4], [9]-48; 63, [1]; 38, [2] pp. 4to. Contemporary quarter vellum and marbled boards, spine titled in ink, uncut. Spine defective, front cover loose, ffep detached, first part browned, scattered foxing throughout. First edition, regular paper issue with prices printed on title-leaves. viii, 37, [3]; [6], [9]-42; [4], [9]-48; 63, [1]; 38, [2] pp. 4to. Presented by Thomas Hollis to Jonathan Mayhew. A complete gathering of James Thomson's 5-part poem on the theme of liberty in the modern and ancient world. "This whiggish historical narrative traces the rise and fall of liberty in ancient Greece and Rome and in modern Europe until its perfection in England at the revolution of 1688. The poem ends, however, as it had begun, among the ruins of Rome, with an implicit warning that luxury and political corruption might ruin even Britain" (ODNB). This copy presented from the Whig propagandist Thomas Hollis (1720-74) to his American friend, Boston Congregationalist minister Jonathan Mayhew (1720-66), with an inscription on the first half-title, "Jonathan Mayhew's, the Gift of Thomas Hollis, Esq., F.R.S. 1760." Both men were active proponents of liberty - Hollis distributed his reprints of republican literature in elegant bindings adorned with emblematic libertarian tools; Mayhew was a leading opponent of the Stamp Act and campaigned for religious and political freedom in the colonies. It is interesting to note that it was Hollis who met with Prime Minister Rockingham in 1765 to convey the American colonists' objection to the Stamp Act (Bond, Thomas Hollis of Lincoln's Inn, p. 27). Hollis later gave to Harvard an emblematic binding containing sermons by Andrew Eliot and Jonathan Mayhew regarding the passage and repeal of the Stamp Act. Hollis published a portrait of Mayhew as part of his "liberty-print" series, and in 1760, the year of this gift of Thomson's poems, Hollis convinced the publisher Andrew Millar to reprint two sermons by Mayhew on the taking of Quebec. The correspondance between Hollis and Mayhew is preserved at the Massachusetts Historical Society (cf. Knollenberg, Thomas Hollis and Jonathan Mayhew Their Correspondence, 1759-1766, Proceedings of the Massachusetts Historical Society, Third Series, Vol. 69 (Oct., 1947 - May, 1950), pp. 102-193). The correspondence makes clear that Hollis was in the habit of sending Mayhew parcels of books, for his own reading and to be distributed among friends or given to Harvard. The present gift was likely among a box of books sent in the summer of 1760. Hollis also had some acquaintance with Thomson; Millar, asked Hollis' help in designing a frontispiece to a collected edition of his works as well as help in composing and designing a memorial inscription to Thomson (cf. Bond, p. 107). An intriguing association. With: [GREEN, Joseph, attributed to.] An Eclogue sacred to the Memory of the Rev. Dr. Jonathan Mayhew, who departed this Life July 9th, Anno Salutis Humanae 1766. 18 pp., including fragment of final ad leaf. 4to. Boston: Thomas and John Fleet, [1766]. First edition. Disbound, text foxed and stained, top portion of first two leaves excised (with loss of "An" from title). Evans 10325. And with 3 pp. of notes in an unknown hand, ca. 1765, on the printing of an edition of Locke's Letters Concerning Toleration by Millar with the assistance of Hollis. Foxon T186, T191, T194, T196, T198; Rothschild 2425 (first part only)

        Arabian Nights. Entertainments Consisting of One Thousand and One Stories Told by the Sultaness of the Indies, to Divert the Sultan from the Execution of a Bloody Vow [...]. Translated into French from the Arabian MSS., by Mr. Galland, of the Royal Academy; and now done into English from the last Paris Edition. The Seventh Edition.

      London, G. Buckeridge, 1736.. Folio (195 x 303 mm). 3 parts in one vol.; incomplete. (139)-148, 153-293, (1) pp. 320 pp. 250 pp. Contemp. English calf; spine silt with giltstamped red label.. Undocumented, early edition (here counted as "the seventh"), printed and published by G. Buckeridge of Baldwin's Gardens, Holborn. Galland's liberal but highly influential French translation, adapted to Parisian tastes, was published in 12 volumes between 1704 and 1717. "Even before the last of Galland's volumes had been published in France, some of his stories had been translated into English and were circulating as cheap chap-books on the popular market" (R. Irwin, The Arabian Nights: A Companion, p. 19). This is one of the several early English editions, all very rare: indeed, no other copy of this one, printed more than a century before Edward Lane's translation, is recorded by OCLC. It is also uncommon for being generously printed in two columns in the folio format, rather than as the usual duocdecimo set. "Galland's translation [...] was quickly translated into English and German. It enjoyed a most remarkable success throughout Europe, perceptible even in children's literature, and contributed significantly to the new image which enlightened Europeans entertained of the Islamic East: after Galland, this was no longer the home of the Antichrist and of accursed heresy, but rather the ever-constant Orient beneath an eternally fair sky, boasting splendid colours and unheard-of wealth, Caliphs, Viziers, and Kadis, harems, fairy-tale princes, fairies and genies, sorcerers and sages, a world of fantastic adventure and outrageous incidents" (cf. Fück, p. 101). - Begins with the 66th Night, bound thus in the 18th century, lacking the first and much of the second book ("volume") of the first part. Upper hinge repaired; wants pp. 1-138 and pp. 149-152 of the first part; first leaf severely damaged with loss (remargined); slighter loss to lower edge of final leaf. From the library of the Rev. Lyndhurst Burton Towne of Harlow (his bookplate to pastedown). - Cf. Chauvin IV, 185 D (the 4th ed., in-12mo). OCLC 731574131 (1736: the 8th ed.; in-12mo).

        Examen castellano de la crisis griega, con que el R.P. Fr. Manuel Bautista de Castro intentò establecer el Instituto Bethlemitico.?

      Madrid, en la Imprenta Real, 1736. - Woodcut vignette on title-page, woodcut initials, of 6 and 9 lines, typographical decorations at head of page 1, and foot of final page. (14 ll.), 363, (5) pp. 4°, contemporary sheep with unusual vine and leaf design on covers (slight wear to extremities, one corner worn), spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments, gilt letter, text block edges sprinkled blue-green. Light, small dampstains to about 15 leaves; a few leaves very slightly toned. Overall in very good, almost fine condition. Contemporary ink ownership inscription on recto of front free endleaf of Fr. Paulo da Assumpção. Penciled note below (by D. Manoel de Vasconcelos?), stating that the book was acquired for 800 reis at the bookshop of the "Alfarrabista" Lopes da Silva, in Porto on 1-4-1920. Oval stamp of Vieira Pinto on recto of third leaf. Accession ticket of the Conde de Sucena on rear pastedown endleaf, indicating that the volume was purchased on February 22, 1934 at the auction of D. Manoel de Vasconcelos. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. This is a reply to Padre Fray Manuel Bautista de Castro's @Crisis doxologica, apologetica y juridica por el monachato legitimo de el maximo Padre San Geronimo en sus Congregaciones monachales de España, Portugal, y Lombardia . Madrid: Bernardo Peralta, 1730. The text is concerned with the priority of the Hieronymites in Spain, i.e., when they were established and how much authority they have or ought to have. The Hieronymite order, following the rule of St. Augustine, controlled royal monasteries such as the Escorial and Santa Maria de Guadalupe in Extremadura in Spain and the Jerónimos monastery at Belém in Portugal. Beginning on the third unnumbered leaf and continuing to the final preliminary leaf are "Memorias para la vida de D. Luis de Salazar," including a "Cathalogo de las obras impressa, y manuscritas de Don Luis de Salazar, formado del de Frankenau, y de su Bibliotheca manuscrita" of four pages. Don Luis was a leading genealogist, having written extensively on the subject, and his library was rich in genealogical manuscripts. An interesting biographical detail is that Don Luis's bed was normally covered with books. He was known as an expert in both civil and canon law, using his knowledge of the latter on several occasions to attempt to resolve disputes between religious orders.---- Palau 286838. Whitehead S48.

        The Life of William Bedell, D.D. Bishop of Kilmore in Ireland [bound with] An Abstract of the Number of Protestant and Popish Families in the Several Counties and Provinces of Ireland

      Dublin 1736 - Two books cut and bound together in a modern plain cloth cover, somewhat stained and worn. The words "Life of Bp. Bedell" are blocked in gilt on the spine. The page edges have been guillotined and stained red. This cutting has resulted in two losses: the date of publication has been cut from the bottom of the title page of Bishop Bedell (and has been written in ink above), and some contemporary annotation in the margins is partially excised. The text is unaffected and all pages are in otherwise excellent condition. There is little foxing, mainly confined to the outermost leaves of the two works. A few faint damp stains are also evident. The binding has plain purple endpapers, with an ownership signature at the front. The ESTC citations of the two books are T115041 (Bishop Bedell) and T18178 (Abstract of protestant and Popish Families) and bibliographic details accord fully. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Histoire De La Comtesse Des Barres A Madame La Marquise De Lambert

      12mo. Bruxelles [i.e. Paris]: Francois Foppens, 1736. 12mo, ?140? (vere 180) pp. Full crushed blue-black morocco extra by Trautz-Bauzonnet, backstrip lettered in gilt, gilt edges, early signature ?de Beauchamp? in ink on title-page, bookplate of Madame de Pompadour, and Wilmerding, also a manuscript note by Gustave Mouravit, and his stamp on the title-page. Front free endpaper detached, otherwise a fine copy of a rare book with a great provenance. Madame de Pompadour bought the entire library of de Beauchamp; this is #3513 in her library catalogue. First edition of this rare account of a libertine priest who dressed as a woman. Wilmerding sale part 3, #209.?L'abbe de Choisy ecrivit ses aventures sous le pseudonyme de la comtesse des Barres. Pretre libertin, il se travestissait en femme depuis sa plus tendre enfance puisque sa mere le preferait ainsi. C'est sous ce nom de comtesse des Barres qu'il se refugia au chateau de Crepon, pres de Bourges. L'abbe de Choisy, devenu ecclesiastique, fut envoye par Louis XIV aupres du roi de Siam en 1685. Il tacha de racheter sa conduite passee par le recit de ce voyage. Ce livre contient le recit des aventures galantes vecues par cette "femme" dont Louvet s'inspira pour son roman sur Les Amours du Chevalier de Faublas. Histoire de madame la comtesse des Barres parut d'abord en 1736 a Bruxelles et fut republie par Paul Lacroix en 1862. "Car depuis mon enfance, j'avais toujours aimé à m'habiller en fille ; quoique j'eusse alors 22. ans, mon visage ne s'y opposait point encore. Je n'avois point de barbe..." (p. 10). L'Histoire de la comtesse des Barres se compose de cinq fragments tirés des manuscrits de Choisy après sa mort (1724), restituant des récits autobiographiques de ce personnage célèbre tiraillé entre luxure et religion, dont la mère, pour qu'il intégrât le monde des gens de qualité et en particulier celui de Monsieur, frère de Louis XIV, et suivant le principe selon lequel " le ridicule est préférable à la pauvreté " (p. 186), l'avait habillé en femme jusqu'à l'âge de dix-huit ans.? No copy recorded at auction (ABPC) but copies offered twice by Sotheby?s Europe.

        Gratulatio Academiae Oxoniensis in Nuptias...Frederici Principis Walliae et Augustae Principissae de Saxo Gotha

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1736. First edition. 1 vols. Folio. Contemporary full red morocco gilt, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Rebacked, rubbed, extremities worn. Fascinating copy of this collection of congratulatory verses on the marriage of the Prince of Wales to Princess Augusta. From the library of bibliophile William Bolland (Dibdin's "Hortensius"), with his name neatly penned on flyleaf; and with the following items inserted: a contemporary copy of George II's letter to the Prince, banishing him from St. James's; a contemporary copy on vellum of the Marriage License of the Prince and Princess; bookplate of the Prince of Wales & Bishop of Osnaburgh, May 1771; bookplate of George III; bookplate of the Prince of Wales, Carleton Library; engraved portraits of George II and Prince Frederick Louis. The long-standing hostility between George II and the Prince of Wales came to a climax when the Prince failed to inform His Majesty of the Princess's pregnancy; the King sent a letter to the Prince, banishing him from the Court indefinitely. "Copies of the correspondence...were sent by the King to each of the British ambassadors abroad and the foreign ambassadors in England..." (DNB). The letter contained herein is apparently one such copy.

        Collection of 6 manuscripts relating to the anti-Spanish riots in Rome in March, 1736

      [Rome, 1736. 59 pp. in all, on laid paper. 4to (all, with one exception, approx. 27 x 20 cm.). Provenance: Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guilford [1766-1827]; library of Sir Thomas Phillipps (ex Ms. 7544); with H.P. Kraus. Riots in Rome: The Spanish Bourbons in Southern Italy - from the Thomas Phillips Collection Following the acquisition of the Kingdom of Naples and the Two Sicilies by the Bourbons of Spain in 1736, the conquering Spanish troops, returning through Rome and Papal States, provoked anti-Spanish riots in March of 1736. The following 6 manuscripts, each in a different, contemporary hand, all from the collection of Sir Thomas Phillips and comprising Phillips Ms. 7544, relate to those events. They are as follows:1) [CONTI, Antonio? attributed to]. "Relazione dei tumulti accaduti on Roma l'anno 1736. Loro origine, e sequele." [13] pp., on 7 leaves.2) "Sopra il tumulto populare seguito in Roma il 13 Marzo 1736." 6, [2, blank] pp. on rectos of 7 leaves. *3) "Se domanda se un Popolo si solleva tumultiamente nel Domnio altrui contro una nazione con offesa del Sovrano di essa, ottenuto il perdona generale ?" 4pp. on two leaves.4) Same text as above with minor differences (e.g. "amnistà" for "perdona"). 4 pp. 21.5 x 15 cm.5) Manuscript Letter, fair copy, headed "Sigl. Mio", 2 [?] Giuglio 1736" beginning: "Non potevate far cosa pui grata all mia amicizia che commnicarmi la lettera trasmessa da Roma ?"[12, 4 blank] pp. Docketed on final page: "Relazione dei tumulti seguiti in Roma l'anno 1736 per iscrivi [?] Austrici [?] contro i Spagnuoli"6) Manuscript Letter, fair copy, headed "Sigl. Mio". 15 pp. N.p., n.d. From the collection of Thomas Phillips (1792-1872). "His collection of over 60,000 manuscripts was an outstanding achievement in the annals of bibliophily" (ODNB), and such was the scale that over 100 years passed after his death until the last tranche of the papers were finally sold, in 1977, to H.P. Kraus.*The attribution would seem to be based on a manuscript of the same title in the University of Chicago, Special Collections Library (v. OCLC: 154339939).

        Integrity and Religion to be principally regarded, by such as design others to stations of publick trust.?A sermon preach'd before His Excellency, Jonathan Belcher, Esq; His Majesty's Council, and the Assembly of the province of the Massachusetts-Bay in New-England, on the anniversary for the election of counsellors for said province, May 26. 1736. By Edward Holyoke, M.A. Pastor of a Church in Marblehead. [Eleven lines of quotations]

      Boston: in New-England :?Printed by J. Draper, printer to His Excellency the governour and Council, for J. Eliot, 1736. First Edition, no half-title. [iv], 51, [1] pp. 8vo. Disbound. Edward Holyoke (1689-1769) was an American clergyman and the president of Harvard College (1737-1769), whose notions of democracy and government by the people preceeded and foreshadowed the Declaration of Independence. As Harvard president, a position that required teaching, Holyoke would have crossed paths with a number of Revolutionary War leaders, such as John Adams, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and Joseph Warren. Holyoke's position was expressed thus: "That those whose Providence it is, to design others, to Stations of publick Trust, should have a principal Regard ro their Integrity and Religion" (p. 5), and that "All forms of Government originate from the People; that is, God in his Providence hath influenced them; some to fix on one form of Government, and some upon another" (p. 12).

        Collection of 6 manuscripts relating to the anti-Spanish riots in Rome in March, 1736

      [Rome, 1736. 59 pp. in all, on laid paper. 4to (all, with one exception, approx. 27 x 20 cm.). Provenance: Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guilford [1766-1827]; library of Sir Thomas Phillipps (ex Ms. 7544); with H.P. Kraus. Riots in Rome: The Spanish Bourbons in Southern Italy - from the Thomas Phillips Collection Following the acquisition of the Kingdom of Naples and the Two Sicilies by the Bourbons of Spain in 1736, the conquering Spanish troops, returning through Rome and Papal States, provoked anti-Spanish riots in March of 1736. The following 6 manuscripts, each in a different, contemporary hand, all from the collection of Sir Thomas Phillips and comprising Phillips Ms. 7544, relate to those events. They are as follows: 1) [CONTI, Antonio? attributed to]. "Relazione dei tumulti accaduti on Roma l'anno 1736. Loro origine, e sequele." [13] pp., on 7 leaves. 2) "Sopra il tumulto populare seguito in Roma il 13 Marzo 1736." 6, [2, blank] pp. on rectos of 7 leaves. * 3) "Se domanda se un Popolo si solleva tumultiamente nel Domnio altrui contro una nazione con offesa del Sovrano di essa, ottenuto il perdona generale ..." 4pp. on two leaves. 4) Same text as above with minor differences (e.g. "amnistà" for "perdona"). 4 pp. 21.5 x 15 cm. 5) Manuscript Letter, fair copy, headed "Sigl. Mio", 2 [?] Giuglio 1736" beginning: "Non potevate far cosa pui grata all mia amicizia che commnicarmi la lettera trasmessa da Roma ..."[12, 4 blank] pp. Docketed on final page: "Relazione dei tumulti seguiti in Roma l'anno 1736 per i scrivi [?] Austrici [?] contro i Spagnuoli" 6) Manuscript Letter, fair copy, headed "Sigl. Mio". 15 pp. N.p., n.d. From the collection of Thomas Phillips (1792-1872). "His collection of over 60,000 manuscripts was an outstanding achievement in the annals of bibliophily" (ODNB), and such was the scale that over 100 years passed after his death until the last tranche of the papers were finally sold, in 1977, to H.P. Kraus. *The attribution would seem to be based on a manuscript of the same title in the University of Chicago, Special Collections Library (v. OCLC: 154339939).

Verey's most famous garden design was that of her own house, Barnsley House, near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. In 1970 she opened the garden for one day to the public for the National Gardens Scheme but eventually it was open 6 days per week to accommodate the 30,000 annual visitors.

        Comoediae

      1736. TERENCE, Publius. Comoediae. xxiv, 324 pp. including numerous engravings (some full-page). Folio, 395 x 270 mm, bound in contemporary Italian full vellum. Urbino: Heirs of Mainardi, 1736.|~| |~||~||~||~||~| Important edition; a superb Urbino production dedicated to Cardinal Albini, with the Italian translation by Forteguerri here printed for the first time. This edition is highly prized for the illustrations, which are based on two noteworthy sources, the first being a series of figures of the "Dramatis Personae" taken from an ancient MS in the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, the second being the Gruninger Terence of 1496; the Vatican MS contains some of the earliest known theatrical illustrations, dating from the ninth century. According to Graesse, the engravings in the present edition are more accurate than those reproduced by Dacier in 1723. The Latin text is taken from an edition by Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655), a Dutch scholar whose Latin treatise on Tragedy in the Theater had considerable influence on dramatic writing theory throughout Europe. The translator Niccolo Forteguerri (1674-1735) was a burlesque poet and member of the Arcadia Academy at Rome; his translation proved popular and was reprinted throughout the eighteenth century. The binding is no doubt Italian, as the endpapers bear an Italian watermark (type of Gaudriault 2013). Pastedown inscribed "T.W. Jackson, Worcester College, Oxford" -- subsequently in the Newcastle Public Library, with bookplate and neat ink-stamps on margins of a number of leaves. Brunet V, 723 "Belle édition". Dibdin, Greek and Latin, 475 ("sumptuous"). Graesse VII, 61. See also Magnus, European Literature 175 & 229.

Illustrated with engraved frontispiece and nine full-page engravings. 8vo., 197 x 125 mm, bound in contemporary English calf, skillfully rebacked. London: Printed and sold by W. Dicey at Ye Print Office in Bow Church Yard & C. Corbett at Addison's head against St. Dunstan's Church Fleet Street, 1736. |~||~||~||~| A fine copy of this English architectural pocket manual, which was first published in 1733. Harris says that although there is nothing original in the book it was presumably desirable because of its simple text and plates, and because of its handy format. The first part, entirely engraved, demonstrates the five orders breaking down the easily understood illustrations with two or three pages of explanation. Also included are descriptions of the imposts of arches, diminution of columns, fluting of columns, formation of moldings, pediments and raking moldings. The engraved portion of the book is followed by a letterpress glossary of architectural terms. PROVENANCE: The Newman family, with armorial bookplate on the front past-down and ownership inscriptions in two different hands on the frontispiece and title-page.
