        "London: a poem, in imitation of the third satire of Juvenal. The second edition."

      London [i.e. Edinburgh]: printed [by Thomas Ruddiman] for R. Dodsley. 1738. "8vo, pp. 20; disbound. Samuel Johnson's first separately published original work. ""The poem reflects the political views current among the 'patriots' who opposed Sir Robert Walpole"" (Courtney). Fleeman's London- Edinburgh edition on which he notes: ""The ornamental tailpiece on p. 20 belonged to Thomas Ruddiman, jun. of Edinburgh, to whose shop this is therefore attributed. As an unauthorized edition is its not found advertised, so that the price remains uncertain, thought it was probably less than the London folios both on account of its size, and because of the cheapness of production É Its supposed scarcity seems to be the effect of neglect."" Not common: only 8 locations in ESTC. Courtney & Smith, pp. 7-8; Fleeman 38.5L/3; Foxon J-78."

        AVANTURES DU SR. C. LE BEAU, AVOCAT EN PARLEMENT, OU VOYAGE CURIEUX ET NOUVEAU, PARMI LES SAUVAGES DE L'AMERIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE.

      Amsterdam: Chez Herman Uytwerf, . 1738 - Two volumes. [14],370,[6]; 430,[6]pp. plus six plates (all folding) and folding map. Titlepages printed in red and black. 12mo. Contemporary calf, leather labels, raised bands, spines gilt. Very minor wear to hinges. On pp.378-379 and 411 of the second volume several sentences have been blacked out in ink (probably contemporary censorship). Otherwise a fresh, clean set, in handsome contemporary bindings. Very good. In 1729, Le Beau was transported to New France from a French prison where he had been incarcerated for libertinism. He fled from Quebec to Holland in 1730, having been charged with counterfeiting and thereby facing a death sentence. Sabin describes his narrative as "a pleasant gossiping book, evidencing considerable acquaintance with the subjects described. It contains a description of the manners and customs of the Iroquois, the Hurons, the Algonquins, and other Indian tribes, derived from the author's personal experiences, although the style in which the work is written is rather that of a romance than a true narrative." Of particular interest are the chapters in which the author discusses the habits of the beaver and the religious ideas and customs of the Indians. "A description of Huron, Iroquois, and Algonquin customs, written in charming style and based, the Author claims, on observations made on a trip to America in 1729" - TPL. TPL 168. LANDE 513.

        Representacion al Rey N. Señor D. Phelipe V ? dirigida al mas seguro aumento del Real Erario, y conseguir la felicidad, mayor alivio, riqueza y abundancia de su Monarquia ?.

      (Madrid?), , 1732 (i.e. 1738?). - Large woodcut initials, headpiece and tailpiece. (2 ll.), 180 pp. Folio, contemporary limp vellum (remains of ties), horizontal manuscript title on spine (faded). Some browning; small piece of blank margin torn off B2. Overall in very good to fine condition. ---- Second (?) edition of this important work on the Spanish economy, with emphasis on colonial commerce. Aguilar Piñal notes two different editions of this work?one collating 1 l., 266 pp. (in folio, though Aguilar Piñal erroneously terms it a quarto), and a folio edition collating as our copy?both with title-pages dated 1732 but without place of publication or publisher. Alden & Landis perceptively note that, in the edition we offer, the 10-year royal privilege and @fee de erratas are dated @1738, that is, the title-page date is the date of composition and not a publication date; the other edition is printed without licenses. The @Representacion was probably printed in Madrid, as that is where the @fee de erratas was issued.Zavala y Auñon suggests that the Spanish colonies be allowed to trade only with Spain, and for that purpose recommends the establishment of monopoly companies set up on the English and Dutch models (pp. 132-47). The numerous problems involved in such companies (from the nobility's dislike of trade to the likelihood that other nations will try to sabotage them) are dealt with on pp. 147-68, and the many benefits of exclusive trade on pp. 168-80. Zavala y Auñon also strongly recommends the elimination of most taxes, including @rentas provinciales, which he believes put too heavy a burden on the poorest classes, in favor of a flat tax on property and income.The @Representacion appeared again in Zavala y Auñon's @Miscelanea economico-politica, Pamplona 1749, one of the most important sources for the history of the Spanish Hacienda in the eighteenth century. Zavala y Auñon was a native of Badajoz.---- Alden & Landis 738/254: noting that the licenses are dated 1738; cf. 732/256: presumed first edition, without licenses. Palau 378415: collating as our copy, without mention of the quarto edition. Medina, @BHA 2886: the quarto edition, collating (2 ll.), 266 pp. Aguilar Piñal VIII, 4017: locating 4 copies in Spain; cf. 4016: a quarto [@sic?actually folio, measuring 32 cm.] edition: locating 11 copies in Spain and Portugal.

        Hidrologia o tratado de las aguas ferrugineas, rubras, vulgarmente dichas de la Virgen de la Cinta de Tortosa, de sus admirables

      - Imp. Joseph García, en la Plaza de Calatrava. Valencia, 1738. 15,5 cm. 3 h.,188 pág. Enc. en pergamino de época. Restauracioes en unas hojas, sin afectar el texto. Primera edición. Vicente Vinaima, doctor en medicina desde el año de 1865, era médico titular de la ciudad de Tortosa. Él descubrió las propiedades medicinales de las aguas ferrugíneas de Tortosa, y fue él quien reunió sus experiencias en esta obra Hidrologia o tratado de las aguas ferrugíneas rubras. El prólogo de la obra fue redactado por Juan Piquer, médico de Tortosa, en que presenta otros lugares de España ricos en aguas minerales de todas clases, pero elogia las de Tortosa en energia y eficacia. Vinaima explica en esta obra su descubrimiento del manantial de Tortosa, hacia 1705. Las primeras pruebas con mujeres fueron positivas, pero no pudo probarlo con otras dolencias a causa de las continuas revueltas de esa época y del asedio que sufrió la ciudad de Tortosa. Poco después vino un cirujano napolitano que cotejó esta agua con otras de igual naturaleza que había visto en Inglaterra e Italia, y las prescribió en varias dolencias. Indica en la obra todas las enfermedades en las que se puede prescribir esta agua y sus efectos positivos, y presenta casos prácticos. Cree que las sustancias que la mineralizan son azufre, algo de vitriolo de Venus, sal amoniacal y sal marina. Al final, concluye con el modo de hacer uso de este remedio y las reglas y precauciones que deben ponerse en práctica. Destacamos por nuestra parte capítulos de interés para la historia local como son el capítulo sobre la situación de los pozos donde se sacan las aguas: la Huerta de Pimpi, la huerta de Vicente Fatsini, etc. .

        Außführliche Geschicht der in dem äussersten Welt-Theil gelegenen Japonesischen Kirch.

      Augsburg, Franz Anton Ilger, 1738. - Folio (215 x 320 mm). 2 pts. in 1 vol. (24), 534, 559, (1) pp. (313-320 counted as columns). Title page printed in red and black. With 9 engr. plates. Contemp. blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards (wants clasps). First German edition of this history of the Jesuit mission in Japan, first published in 1689. Accounts of the country, its inhabitants, and their customs. The plates show costumes, buildings and scenes of martyrdom. Although the book was widely translated, the Catholic church curiously took exception to it: "Crasset's history was scarcely original, for it was drawn in great part from the work which Father Solier had issued in 1627; he merely retouched the style and continued the narrative from 1624 to 1658. The objection is made that the work lacks precision, is heavy, and is crowded with details.

        Della Istoria d'Italia Libri XX

      Venezia [Venice] - Giambatista Pasquali 1738 - A very scarce copy of this groundbreaking history of Italy from Francesco Guicciardini. In Italian. Francesco Guicciardini (6 March 1483 22 May 1540) was an Italian historian and statesman. A friend and critic of Niccolo Machiavelli, he is considered one of the major political writers of the Italian Renaissance. In his masterpiece, The History of Italy, Guicciardini paved the way for a new style in historiography, with his use of government sources to support arguments and the realistic analysis of the people and events of his time. Guicciardini is best known as the author of the Storia d'Italia (The History of Italy), which provides a detailed account of politics in the Italian Peninsula between 1490 and 1534. Written during the last years of his life, this work contains the historian's observations collected over his entire lifetime and was a work intended for posterity. As Gilbert writes: The History of Italy stands apart from all his writings because it was the one work which he wrote not for himself, but for the public. In the words of one of Guicciardini's severest critics, Francesco de Sanctis: If we consider intellectual power [the Storia d'Italia] is the most important work that has issued from an Italian mind. With engraved frontispieces and vignette title pages, plus decorative head and tail pieces and one other plate. Written in twenty parts. Complete in two volumes. Condition: Rebound in half-calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally smart, with very little shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are mainly bright, with a few light spots. Overall: FINE [Attributes: Hard Cover]
