        A sermon preached to the Societies for Reformation of Manners, at St. Mary-le-Bow, on Monday, March 5th, 1738. : By Samuel Smith, L.L.B. rector of Allhallows on the Wall, and lecturer of St. Alban's Wood-street

      London: Printed for M. Downing, in Bartholomew-Close, near West-Smithfield (1738). 28pp - London: Printed for M. Downing, in Bartholomew-Close, near West-Smithfield (1738). 28pp. The Society for the Reformation of Manners was founded in the Tower Hamlets area of London in 1691. Its espoused aims were the suppression of profanity, immorality, and other lewd activities in general, and of brothels and prostitution in particular. One of many similar societies founded in that period, it reflected a sea-change in the social attitudes in England following the Glorious Revolution of 1688, and a shifting from the socially liberal attitudes of the Restoration period under Charles II and James II to a more moral and censorious attitude of respectability and seriousness under William and Mary. This document notes that "Great numbers of Bawdy-houses, Sodomitical haunts, Common gaming-houses, and other Disorderly houses, have been suppressed and shut up; and the streets very much purg'd from the Wretched tribe of Night-walking Prostitutes and most detestable Sodomites." The Society flourished until the 1730s, with 1,363 prosecutions in 1726-7. There was a series of raids on "molly houses" (homosexual brothels) in 1725. One prominent victim of the Society was Charles Hitchen, a "thief-taker" and Under City Marshal. He acted as a "finder" of stolen merchandise, negotiating a fee for the return of the stolen items, while extorting bribes from pickpockets to prevent arrest, and leaning on the thieves to make them fence their stolen goods through him. His business may have been undermined by the success of his competitor Jonathan Wild. In 1727, Hitchen was accused of sodomitical practices, and tried for sodomy (a capital offence) and attempted sodomy. He was sentenced to a fine of 20 pounds, to be put in the pillory for one hour, and then to serve six months in prison. He was badly beaten while in the pilory, and died soon after being released from prison. Very good, disbound from another volume, but intact otherwise. Uncommon.

Prima edizione dell'opera principale del celebre  medico napoletano Niccolò Cirillo, apparsa postuma e curata dal nipote, composta un'interessante raccolta di numerose diagnosi. Tra le ampie osservazioni sui benefici delle acque napoletane, spiccano quelle della Ferrata, di Testaccio, d'Ischia e le virtù dei Bagni di Pozzuoli. Cfr. Treccani: "" l'opera... raccoglie i pareri su casi clinici scritti dal C. su richiesta dei medici d'altre località e, in base, ad una descrizione epistolare dei sintomi, come anche quelli da lui, stilati a nome di collegi medici di cui aveva fatto parte. Il primo ed il secondo volume dei Consulti medici comprendono ciascuno duecento relazioni in italiano, mentre il terzo ne comprende quaranta scritte in latino più tre scritti eterogenei che i curatori colsero l'occasione per pubblicare: le Considerazioni su due pareri di opposta sentenza intorno alld coltura del riso nella piana di Gifoni, e le due dissertazioni De argento vivo e De ferro, concernenti i loro usi medici. Ciascuna relazione contiene, schematicamente, una descrizione dei sintomi essenziali, una diagnosi e proposte terapeutiche, ed esse mostrano, in genere, la notevole indipendenza del C. da affiliazioni di scuola troppo nette, anche se si colgono i segni d'una interpretazione ""fermentativa"" della patogenesi che è la traccia degli anni di voga iatrochimica in cui sera formato"".  Opera rara a trovarsi in prima edizione a cui ne seguirono diverse nel corso del XVIII secolo, pubblicate a Venezia.

To make the Work more complete, the Editor has compiled a full and faithful Account of the Author's Life; containing besides the Particulars given us by Toland, and other Authors, many never before printed, with several Pieces now first published from the original Manuscripts of Milton. . . To the Work is subjoined a large Alphabetical Index, which no other Edition has; and the Impression is much more beautiful and correct than any hitherto published. From the Advertisement to the Reader. With an engraved portrait frontispiece of John Milton. The title pages are in red and black. With the armorial bookplate to the front pastedowns, and ink signature to the title pages, of American academic Barret Wendell. Thomas Birch, 1705 1766, was an English historian. In 1732 Birch was appointed to the General Dictionary, Historical and Critical. . . Separate historical works also grew out of the General Dictionary. First came The Works of Mr John Greaves (1737) followed by the complete collection of the works of John Milton (1738) and the massive seven-volume compilation of the state papers of John Thurloe (1742). (DNB)Barrett Wendell, 1855 1921, was an American academic. Educated at Harvard, he became an Instructor, and later, Professor of English there. He was a trustee of the Boston Athenaeum, a member of the Massachusetts Historical Society, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Condition: The bindings are tight. The boards of volume 1, and the front board of volume 2, are detached, but are held by the reinforced inner hinges. The rear hinge of volume 2 is starting. There is wear to the extremities, including rubbing, with loss to the spine labels. Internally the pages are generally bright with only the odd scattered spot and occasional mark. There is very slight evidence of past worming, that does not affect the text, to the rear of volume 1 and the front of volume 2 but this is very marginal. With an copperplate ink signature for Robert Chambers to the title pages. Overall the condition is good only due to some slight remedial work needed to the early binding, with a very good interior..

        Ricciardetto di Niccolo Carteromaco

      In Parigi A spese di Francesco Pitteri Libraio Viniziano, 1738. FIRST EDITION. 2 volumes. 4to, 275 x 200 mms., pp. [ii], xxxvi, 420; [ii], 412, including half-title to volume 2 but no title-page (as issued), engraved portrait frontispiece of "Niccolo Carteromaco," title-page in red and black, with engraved vignette (by F. Zucchi after G. Ghedini), engraved head- and tail-pieces, by F. Zucchi, C. Orsolini, M. Pitteri, G. Cattini after designs by Ghedini, for each of the 30 cantos, attractively bound in contemporary vellum, red morocco labels; natural flaw in paper of frontispiece, slightly affecting portrait, slight chip to lower fore-margin of binding of volume 1, but very good to fine set, from the library of the 19th century collector George Wilbraham, and inscribed on recto of front free end-paper of both volumes, "comprato alla vendita dei libri di G. Wilbraham in Londara il 13 di Giungno 1829." Niccolò Forteguerri (1674 - 1735) lived in Rome and worked in the Vatican. An accomplished poet, he contributed to anthologies and collections, but this posthumously-published work is his greatest achievement. A slightly satiric and mock-heroic chivalric narrative in octets (ottava rima), it occasionally verges on the risque. In his 1947 book on Shelley, Newman Ivey White, maintains that a major impetus for Shelley's poem "The Witch of Atlas" was Fortegurri's Ricciardetto.

Or A Catalogue of Plants naturally growing and commonly cultivated in diverse parts of England, more especially about Nottingham. The most known Latin and English Names of the several Plants, the Tribe they belong to, the Time of their flowering, and of those which are either Officinals, or otherwise of any known Efficacy, such Virtues are briefly mentioned as may be depended upon. With an English Index. To which is added, to the Benefit of the English Reader, a general Distribution of Plants, according to Mr. Ray, an Explanation of some Botanical and Physical Terms, and an Alphabetical List of Plants in Flower for every Month in the Year, together with short Directions when to gather any Parts of them. FIRST EDITION, 1738. 8vo, bound in fours, approximatley 175 x 110 mm, 7 x 4¼ inches, English text, pages: [20], 231, [11], 6, [4], 24 - including index, bound in full antique leather, double ruled border to covers, rebacked with raised bands, gilt rules and lettering. Covers worn and scratched, corners showing cardboard at tips, small bookplate on front pastedown, ink name on front endpaper, title page lightly foxed, occasional slight foxing to contents, binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. George Charles Deering (c. 1695-1749) medical doctor and student of botany, was a native of Dresden, Saxony. In the 1720s he practised in London as a physician, moving to Nottingham in 1735. "Deering appears to have had a life-long interest in botany, and when he lived in London was a member of the Botanical Society, founded by J. J. Dillenius and John Martyn. In the preface ... he advocates the pursuit of field botany as a means of obtaining fresh air and exercise". "This book, ... contains about 850 entries of phanerogamic and cryptogamic plants, and the names are arranged in alphabetical order... Localities are recorded for many species, and in a number of cases descriptive details include medicinal properties and uses. These medicinal details were possibly given to forward the sale of the book, for until the second half of the eighteenth century plant collecting remained chiefly the concern of those interested in obtaining herbs of economic and medicinal use". Henrey, British Botanical and Horticultural Literature before 1800, Volume II, page 59-61 and No. 620. The title page is followed by a dedication page addressed to the Duke of Newcastle and other eminent men of the day. According to Henrey some copies have a second dedication consisting of 6 leaves, this is not published in our copy. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

Paris: G. & C. Martin, 1738. An interesting and fine copy of one of the most outstanding book sales of the 18th century. Hoym had his books bound by the best French binders of the period, so that volumes with his arms have become much-desired specimens of this craft. "Le comte d'Hoym avait été ambassadeur en France du roi de Pologne, Auguste II; on ne possède aucun renseignement sur sa vie, mais on sait qu'il aimait les livres avec passion...Le catalogue comprend 4,785 articles...Le comte avait fait des achats considérables aux ventes Du Fay, Colbert, Baluze, etc. Dans son ardeur d'acquisition, il réunissait un grand nombre de doubles."-Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, cols. 470-71. This is a very remarkable copy, having not only the prices in MS., but also the price estimates and MS. additions indicating the numerous duplicates and triplicates (with prices and type of binding) not catalogued, but offered at the sale. Additionally, this copy has a six-page printed supplement of books omitted from the main part of the catalogue; this is very rare and usually missing. ❧ Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions...1643-1830, 46.

A handsome set. * Second and final edition. Volume II is entitled: Ordo Judiciorum; Seu Formularium in Negotiis et Litibus in Foro Ecclesiastico-Civili. Oughton "was a learned man, who spared no pains to produce a book which was scientific, accurate, and historically correct. He consulted public and private muniment rooms, the records of the courts, the Cottonian MSS., and the MSS. in the Harleian library. The result of these labors was a book in two volumes, the first of which describes the practice of the ecclesiastical courts, and the second contains a collection of formularies. After the book had been finished and sent to the printers, the printing office and the MS. was destroyed by fire. But Oughton, being, as he said, 'ardens et tenax,' rewrote it. His diligence and perseverance were rewarded; for it became the accepted authority on the practice of the ecclesiastical courts." Holdsworth, A History of English Law XII:616.

Very rare. Not in Gregory-Bartlett, Wolffheim or Hirsch. Cortot p. 56. RISM BVI p. 237 (3 copies only, all at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris). & & "In France similar books of amateur violin instruction were printed. The modest tutors by Brossard, Montéclair, and Dupont appeared in the first quarter of the eighteenth century. A work of a far more advanced character was Corrette's L'Ecole d'Orphée, published in Paris in 1738. This method reflects the notable advance in violin playing in France after the advent of the Italian sonata. Corrette reports on both French and Italian styles of playing, both being prevalent in France in his time. He recommends holding the violin under the chin in the Italian style, and he mentions both the Italian bow grip, used by the new French sonata players, and also the old French (thumb-under-hair) grip of the traditional dance violinists. Corrette also associates first-position playing with the French style, and positions as high as the seventh are described as part of Italian practice... Corrette's work of 1738 is the most advanced treatise for the violin to appear in France before that of L'Abbé le fils in 1761."

He was one of the founders of Methodism and of the evangelical movement generally. He became perhaps the best-known preacher in Britain and America in the 18th century, and because he travelled through all of the American colonies and drew great crowds and media coverage, he was one of the most widely recognized public figures in colonial America.

The work went through several editions, was first printed in Antwerp in 1615 and 1627 (Beller); later in Berlin in 1705 (Rüdiger). In 1738 publisher Martin Schagen got the publishing rights and issued the present copy. He could now reset the entire work and print it in elegant quarto format, add the Johannes Stradanus suite of portraits, extra suite of coin illustrations, and allow the plates the freedom to remain bound separately from the text. The edition was printed on handsome laid paper with ample margins, and the strikes of the plates are remarkably more beautiful than these of their predecessors.

        The history of the British plantations in America. With a chronological account of the most remarkable things, which happen'd to the first adventurers in their several discoveries of that new world. Part I [all published]. Containing The History of Virginia; with remarks on the trade and commerce of that colony

      London: Printed at the Expense of the Society for the Encouragement of Learning, by S. Richardson, 1738. Quarto. (10 x 8 inches). 2 engraved folding maps, engraved title vignette repeated on verso of the final leaf, ornamental tailpiece. Uncut and largely unopened. Expertly bound to style in half 18th-century russia over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. First edition of an early English history of Virginia: a tall, uncut copy complete with both maps. This rare account of the early exploration and settlement of Virginia is all that was published of a planned series of books on the British colonies in America. Although it begins with a brief sketch of the discovery and early exploration of America, the volume is mostly devoted to an account of Virginia, its commercial prospects, Indian tribes inhabiting the country, and tobacco growing there, with the whole of the work stressing the importance of trade between colony and mother country. Keith served as governor of Pennsylvania from 1717 to 1726, having previously been surveyor-general of customs for the southern colonies. He was a satisfactory official for the time that he served, and was well liked by both British officials and the colonists. The work contains two maps. The first, titled A New and Correct Map of America, shows all of North and South America, with California as an island, with an inset of the Arctic regions (with a note on the search for a Northwest Passage) and an inset vignette showing the Newfoundland cod fisheries. The map, according to the title, is after John Senex, William Moll "and other modern geographers." The other map, titled A New Map of Virginia, depicts Virginia, South Carolina, Maryland and the southern part of New Jersey. Copies of this work complete with both maps are rare. Alden & Landis 738/129; Church 930; Clayton-Torrence 147; Howes K36; Sabin 37240; Winsor III, p. 165; Arents 930; Cumming 240.
