Longue, Louis- Pierre de- ).
Amsterdam, Chastelain. In- 12 ; (8)- 213- (3) pp. ; veau marbré havane, dos lisse orné, filet or sur les coupes, tranches rouges, rel. de l' ép. De la même année que l' originale, qui paraît à Paris, chez Didot. L' éd. de Chastelain reproduit d' ailleurs fidèlement le Privilège accordé à "notre bien- aimé François Didot". Anyway, petit livre rare par le sulfureux auteur des "Princesses malabares", (1734), l' un des deux seuls livres, avec les "Lettres philosophiques" de Voltaire, a avoir été condamné au bûcher pour impiété au XVIIIe s., avant 1740. (Minois, Athéisme, p. 372). Concernant la poésie, la thèse de de Longue est que la poésie française meurt d' un excès de rimes, le "brocantage de la rime", (p. 29), et qu' il faut en venir à "de la Prose Nombreuse ou de la Poésie sans Rimes". ("Avis au lecteur"). L' idée n' a pas séduit les auteurs de "Observations sur les Ecrits modernes", (vol. X, 1737, pp. 20 à 24), pas plus que le ton du livre : "ton burlesque, hardi & peu décent qui règne dans une grande partie de la brochure." Nombreuses réflexions de de Longue sur diction et prononciation, indices sur les parlers, y compris régionaux, du temps. Marges extérieures des premiers ff. brunies, petit trou en marge sup. d' un feuillet (pp.81/82), les numéros des 2 pp. ont disparu, sinon très bon ex. en quasi impeccable petite reliure d' époque.

([SMITH, Joseph])
Title printed in red & black. 1 p.l., 70 pp., 1 leaf. 8vo, cont. vellum over boards, black morocco lettering piece on spine (label abraded). [Venice: J.B. Pasquali, 1737]. The very rare second edition, enlarged by 21 additional incunabula (the first edition of ca. 1735 lists 227 titles and was printed in an edition of only fifty copies) of Consul Smith's privately printed catalogue of his magnificent collection of incunabula. Only a few copies of this edition were printed (an early note on the title-page of this copy states only 25 copies were printed). Smith (1682-1770), was British Consul at Venice and, in 1765, sold his superb library to George III for 10,000 pounds. It thus became the nucleus of the "King's Library" and of the British Museum (now Library). Horace Walpole sneered at Smith as "the merchant of Venice" who knew nothing of his books save their title-pages, but the censure is quite undeserved. Fine copy with the Bibliotheca Lindesiana bookplate. With an early note on the front paste-down endpaper "Sale by Wheatley March 1833." ❧ Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 625. De Ricci, pp. 54-55. Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 261-62.

Thusnelda's 'Rendimi il dolce sposo', ending Act 2, is an attractive siciliana and Varus' expansive Act 3 aria 'Mira il ciel' makes evocative use of oboes and horns."

HARVEY William
Johannem van Kerckhem, 1737. 2 opere in 1 vol. in-4, ff. (8), pp. 170 e 2 tavole f.t.; ff. (12), pp. 404, ff. (4); legatura coeva in pelle, fregi oro e tassello granata al dorso. Titoli in rosso e nero e con vignette in rame. Le due tavole f.t. in rame (J.d. Groot del.; J.vd Spyk fecit) illustrano il sistema circolatorio nelle braccia. Prima edizione collettiva dei due trattati più celebri di Harvey, noto fisiologo inglese (Folkestone 1578 - Hempstead 1657). Comprende il "de Motu Cordis et Sanguinis in animalibus", apparso per la prima volta nel 1628: quest'opera segna un momento rivoluzionario nella storia della medicina, paragonabile a quello provocato dall'opera di Copernico in campo astronomico. Con la scoperta della circolazione del sangue nacquero la moderna fisiologia e biologia; l'elaborazione della teoria fu basata sulle osservazioni sperimentali (vivisezione e autopsie) e supportata dal ricorso alla scienza meccanica e alla dimostrazione matematica. «English experimental scientists regarded the discovery as of equal importance with Copernican astronomy or Galilean physics» (PMM 127). Il "de Generatione Animalium", apparso per la prima volta nel 1651 a Londra, rivoluzionò la teoria galenico-aristotelica dello sviluppo dell' embrione. "The chapter on labour ("De partu") in this book represents the first original work on obstetrics to be published by an English author". (Garrison-Morton 6146). Ottimo esemplare di raccolta rara e ricercata.

Ce livre fit scandale et valut à son auteur, Louis Basile Carré de Montgeron (1686-1754), une mise en Bastille d'où il ne sortit que pour d'autres cachots jusqu'à sa mort. Après le décès du diacre François de Pâris, les fidèles vinrent prier sur sa tombe et nombre de guérisons spectaculaires s'y produisirent. Le roi fit fermer le cimetière Saint-Médard pour mettre fin aux attroupements. Mais peu après, les convulsions des malades se firent de plus en plus violentes, nécessitant des « secours » sous forme de coups de bûches ou de barres de fer, tiraillements, et même crucifixions. Montgeron, conseiller au parlement de Paris, se rendant au cimetière Saint-Médard (1731) pour prouver la fausseté des miracles intervenus sur la tombe du diacre, fut converti, et travailla dès lors à la justification des convulsionnaires. Le premier volume présente 9 cas de guérisons miraculeuses, illustrés par 20 gravures, dont une double. Les gravures sont exécutées par le buriniste exerçant à Amsterdam, Pieter Yver (1712-1787) d'après les dessins du peintre français Jean Restout (1692-1768) ; un portrait du diacre Pâris en prière, non signé, mais sans do … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: I. Walsh, No. 605, 1737. First Edition, sole issue. Smith p. 20, 1. BUC p. 426. RISM H116. An opera in three acts to a libretto anonymously adapted from Antonio Salvi Arminio (1703, Pratolino), Arminius was first performed in London at Covent Garden on January 12, 1737. "Handel composed Arminio immediately after drafting Giustino, completing the 'filling-out' of the score on 14 October 1736. It was the first new opera in Handel's season of 1736-7 at Covent Garden Theatre, when for the last time his productions competed with those of the 'Opera of the Nobility' at the King's Theatre... Arminius has some very fine numbers, notably his noble declaration of faith to his country ('Al par della mia sorte'), with its suggestion of a chaconne bass, and his prison aria 'Vado a morir'. Thusnelda's 'Rendimi il dolce sposo', ending Act 2, is an attractive siciliana and Varus' expansive Act 3 aria 'Mira il ciel' makes evocative use of oboes and horns."

I företalet hävdar Nicander att svenskan lämpar sig väl att anpassas efter den latinska versens regler, något som tidigare skribenter som Arvidi och Poppelman helt motsatt sig. "Detta torde wäl icke synnerligen falla i allas tycke, i synnerhet wåra rimmares, som hädanefter, til äfwentyrs, ei skulle hafwa så lätt före att skaka ett par hundrade vers ur armen, som härtils; [...] så skulle jag hålla före, at den [skaldekonsten] äfwen nu för tiden borde hållas i samma värde, så at hwar och en Sot-Matts och Pär Rimare ei finge tilstånd, at til språkets wahnähra gifwa en hop odugeligit kram i dagsliuset." Om Sot-Mats upplyses i en not: "Denne så kallade Sot-Matts eller Matts Mattsson war skorstensfägare för några år sedan i Upsala. Han war så stark rimare/ at alt hwad han talade/ hwar rim", Pär Rimmare i sin tur var "en tiggare i Skåne/ af samma egenskaper/ som den förre".
