John Milton
London: John Hughs for Robert Dodsley, 1738. Condition: Very Good +. The 1st edition of John Dalton's adaptation of Milton's masque Comus. The original version, an important early work, was only performed once in Milton's lifetime. The music, as is noted on the title page, was the work of the baroque composer Henry Lawes (1595-1622), who also performed in the masque. The text was published anonymously in 1637; Milton then included it in his "Poems" of 1645 & 1673. Octavo, Roman and italic types. Woodcut initial cartouches, headpieces and culs-de-lampe. The two errata, on pg. 16 & 22, corrected in manuscript. Modern brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt, early green paper wrappers (which are titled in ink) bound in. Provenance: Wynne Edwin Baxter (1844-1920; English lawyer, antiquarian and botanist; noted coroner --he conducted the inquests into the deaths of many of the victims in the Whitechapel murders of 1888-1891; noted collector of Milton; bookplate on front pastedown).

Madame la Maquise de Sevigne, her first name being Marie, is best known for her thorough documentation of life in the court of Louis XIV, and general aristocratic life in the seventeenth Century. She was a prolific letter writer, and her letters show a very interesting insight into that period in history. As Marie was widowed at a young age, and never re-married, she had an interesting life at court, as she was respected as a wife would be, but she wasn't hindered by living husband's demands. Most of Marie's letters were to her daughter, Francoise. Knowing that her letters were being copied and circulated, Marie carefully censored them to provide a little bit of privacy. Marie lived to see many interesting events, including the trial and execution of Madame de Brinvilliers. Brinvilliers was an aristocrat who was charged with three murders, who's trail begun the 'Affair of the Poisons' during which ma … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLEURIEU, Charles Pierre Claret, Count d'Eveux de.
1738. Bibl. horlogère de Monsieur R.P. 196; Chadenat 2617; Gould, p. 96 note; Tardy, p. 99. First edition of an account by Charles Pierre Claret, Count Fleurieu (1738-1810), of the first voyage made to test the chronometers invented by his mentor, Ferdinand Berthoud (1727-1807). They were developed to keep accurate time at sea in order to solve the problem of the determination of longitude, to make it possible for ships to easily determine their position. Berthoud closely followed the work of Harrison in England, who had already proven the efficacy of his chronometer no. 4 in 1761, but refused to allow Berthoud and others to examine it. During the voyages described in the present work, Fleurieu tested Berthoud's chronometers as well as his own instruments on board the ship Isis, travelling to Cadiz, the Canaries, the Antilles, Santo Domingo, the Atlantic Ocean, Madera, and several other places. The results showed their success even beyond his own expectations. The present work is complete with the appendix.With an owner's inscription on both title-pages. With only some minor, mostly marginal water stains at the beginning of volume 2. Folios e2 and e3 misbound at the end between 4I1 and 4I2. In very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

[JAPAN] CRASSET, Jean
Augsburg: Franz Antoni Alger, 1738. First Edition. Hardcover. Nineteenth century signature to front fly leaf and early signature to title, some very light staining in various places throughout (mostly only visible in margins); expected soiling to binding. A clean and attractive Near Fine example. Quarto (8-1/2" x 12-1/2") with two parts bound together in contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards, clasps lacking but catches present, title on spine label stamped in blind; [24], 534, [2], 559, [1] pages. Title in red and black, engraved head- and tail-pieces and initials. Illustrated with 9 engraved plates. The First German Edition of this history of the Jesuit Mission in Japan. While Christianity in Japan flourished for a brief period in the mid 1500s, the religion was banned in 1620 and existed only underground. The Catholic church took some exception to Crasset's work, saying that he "attributed the origin of the persecution of 1597 to the imprudence of the friars in making their religious ceremonies too public" (Catholic Encyclopedia IV, 468).

L'oculiste du Roi George II, John Taylor, un habile chirurgien, apporta une contribution notable à l'ophtalmologie. Il parcourut toute l'Europe, et sa dextérité supposée lui valut un grand renom, qu'il sut adroitement entretenir à grand renfort de publicité. Il finit sa vie à Paris. Toutefois il est resté dans l'histoire pour ses opérations manquées sur les musiciens Bach et Haendel. In fine se trouve une bibliographie des auteurs qui ont écrit sur les maladies de l'oeil.

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."
