Così Diz. Treccani,VII, p. 75. Cfr. Brunet,III,1108: "cette édition, pour laquelle l'éditeur a consulté cinquante manuscrits et cent treize textes imprimés, est, au jugement des savants, un chef-d'oeuvre d'exactitude et d'érudition; nous pouvons ajouter que le mérite de l'exécution typographique égale celui du texte". Esemplare ben conservato: purtroppo con bruniture per la qualità della carta.

        A description of the empire of China and Chinese-Tartary, together with the kingdoms of Korea and Tibet: containing the geography and history (natural as well as civil) of those countries ...

      London : T. Gardner for Edward Cave, 1738-41. First complete English edition. Two volumes, folio, contemporary full calf ruled in gilt, expertly rebacked preserving the original labels; spines with raised bands and gilt rule; vol. 1 frontispiece portrait of Confucius, pp [4], xii, [1], xii, 678; vol. 2 pp [4], 388, [8]; with 51 engraved maps and plans (42 folding; map of China miscreased) and 13 plates; originally the personal copy of Thomas Percy (1729-1811), clergyman at Easton Maudit, Northamptonshire, later Bishop of Dromore, presented to him by the bookseller and writer Robert Dodsley (1704-1764), and inscribed on the front free-endpaper of the first volume "The Gift of Mr. Dodsley to Th. Percy"; bound in at the rear of the second volume is Percy's own 8-page manuscript index, with a note at the foot, dated at Easton Maudit, 1762, expressing his frustration at the inadequacy of the error-riddled printed index; both pastedowns with the engraved armorial bookplate of Du Pre Alexander, second Earl of Caledon (1777-1839), politician and colonial administrator, and his blind library stamps on the title pages; [accompanied by] a signed autograph letter by Jean Baptiste Du Halde, dated 11 October 1729; [1] page, small quarto, with attached blank leaf; addressed to an unnamed correspondent; in the note, Du Halde mentions a gift and apologises for not being able to present it in person. The French Jesuit geographer and historian Du Halde's encyclopaedic work on China is considered the most comprehensive of any printed in Europe in the eighteenth century. Its scope covers Chinese religion and customs, language, science and medicine, political institutions and antiquities. In the opinion of Tooley, the maps which appeared for the first time in this English edition - drawn by d'Anville from recent surveys by Jesuit missionaries in China and engraved by Emanuel Bowen - constitute "the principal cartographic authority on China during the 18th century." The work also contains the first published separate map of Korea, accompanied by an account of Korea by Jean-Baptiste Régis. The translation (possibly by William Guthrie, according to Löwendahl) contributed significantly to the standardisation of Chinese orthography in English. A much shorter earlier English edition, with only 15 plates and 4 maps, was published in 1736. Cordier, Sinica, 50; Lust, 15; Löwendahl, 409

Although other editions have been given in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, it is not only the most beautiful edition of this text, but also the best translation by Favre, reviewed by Gorgeons and others .. Full speckled antique glazed calf. Back tooled raised florets in 4 boxes. Part of title in red morocco. Caps head leveled. Tail headdress of Volume II threadbare. Wormholes and a gallery on the upper flat of Volume I. A flap of skin torn on upper cover of Volume III of 3 cm. Corners bumped. Of the three title pages, two rectangles of paper were pasted ly of both sides, under the title, thus masking a previous owner. History of the wars of Italy begins in 1490 and ends in 1534; Guicciardini worked there for 27 years, and his work, in the opinion of critics of his time is valuable and of great merit, even though it was criticized its violence would greatly praised his impartiality; this work did much to modernize methods in history. Ambassador, writer and politician of Florence, friend Machiavelli, Guicciardini is part of the pantheon of great men of Florence. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Bien que d'autres éditions aient été données au XVIe et au XVIIe siècle, celle-ci constitue non seulement la plus belle édition sur ce texte, mais également la meilleure traduction, par Favre, revue par Gorgeons et d'autres auteurs.. Reliure en plein veau glacé moucheté d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de 4 fleurons dans des caissons. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffes de tête arasées. Coiffe de queue du tome II élimée. Trous de vers et une galerie sur le plat supérieur du tome I. Un lambeau de peau arrachée sur le plat supérieur du tome III, sur 3 cm. Coins émoussés. Sur les trois pages de titre, deux rectangles de papier ont été contrecollés anciennement de part et d'autre, sous le titre, masquant ainsi un ancien propriétaire. Cette Histoire des guerres d'Italie commence en 1490 et se termine en 1534 ; Guicciardini y travailla durant 27 années, et son oeuvre, de l'avis des critiques de son temps est précieuse et de grand mérite, même s'il lui fut reproché sa violence, on loua grandement son impartialité ; cette oeuvre fit beaucoup pour la modernisation des méthodes en histoire. Ambassadeur, écrivain et homme politique de Florence, ami de Machiavel, Guicciardini fait partie du panthéon des grands hommes de Florence.

        THE LORD JESUS CHRIST THE ONLY, AND SUPREAM HEAD OF THE CHURCH. A SERMON, DELIVERED, IN PUBLICK, TO THE ASSEMBLY OF MINISTERS, AT THEIR ANNIVERSARY CONVENTION, IN BOSTON; WHICH WAS FOLLOWED WITH A COLLECTION FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE GOSPEL. JUNE 1. 1738.

      S. Kneeland and T. Green,, Boston: 1738 - [4], 34, [2 blanks] pp, with the half title [chipped at blank lower margin]. Disbound, scattered foxing and light wear, Good+. A Harvard graduate and Congregational Minister in Marblehead for over fifty years, Barnard was, according to Charles Chauncy, "equalled by few in regard either of readiness of invention, liveliness of imagination, or strength and clearness of reasoning" [so quoted in DAB]. His early work, 'Ashton's Memorial', was "a worthy and early American addition to the literature of castaways" [II Streeter Sale 671]. Here Barnard makes a powerful argument for the self-government of New England congregations, with obvious implications for self-government of American political institutions. Religious self-government profoundly differed from Anglican practices across the Atlantic. New England congregations reflect the early practice of "the Primitive Church." For "the first three hundred Years after Christ, the Churches consisted of particular Congregations, each having their own Pastor, to minister unto them in the holy Things of God; and every such Assembly of professed Christians. had entire Power within it self, to manage the Affairs of the Kingdom of Christ, and the holy Discipline belonging to it, without any Dependance upon any superiour Power upon Earth." This "was the Principle of our Fathers, who laid the Foundation of these Churches, in this Wilderness."Evans 4219.

In addition to his religious role in the community, Eliot was actively involved in the natural sciences, medicine, and agriculture. "For more than forty years he never failed to preach at least once every Sunday, and was highly regarded in the colony as a minister and adviser in church matters. Without neglecting the duties of this office, he pursued his interest in natural science and achieved eminence in widely different fields...He bought considerable tracts of land, experimented wisely in their improvement, and embodied his results in an ESSAY ON FIELD HUSBANDRY IN NEW ENGLAND, published in six parts at intervals in the years from 1748 to 1759. These for a long time were the most widely read and prized agricultural essays in America. With President Ezra Stiles of Yale College, he introduced silk culture into the colony" - DAB. EVANS 4241.
