        LA GERUSALEMME LIBERATA DI TORQUATO TASSO.

      Elegante legatura coeva in pelle color avana spruzzata, con inserimento a mosaico di una bordura in pelle verde scuro ai piatti, recante fregio vegetale stilizzato sugli angoli e delimitata da riquadri di filetti e denti di topo; dorso a 6 nervi rilevati, evidenziati da fregi trasversali a rotella, decorato alle caselle con fiorone tra fasci di filetti, recante in testa due tasselli, il superiore rosso con autore e titolo, l'inferiore nero con numero di tomo e dati di tipografia; dentelle esterne e interne a rotella, il tutto impresso in oro; tagli dorati. (18) - 331; (2) - 337 pagine numerate, compreso il frontespizio di ciascun volume. Testo in lingua italiana; carattere prevalentemente tondo, con versi di dedica dell'edizione e argomento di ciascun canto in corsivo. L'opera, pregevolmente rilegata, è uno dei capolavori tipografici di Giovan Battista Bodoni, nato a Saluzzo nel 1740, attivo a Parma per lunghi anni e qui morto nel 1813. Bodoni impresse, con i caratteri da lui disegnati, due edizioni del poema tassiano nel 1794, entrambe con dedica a stampa a Carlo IV di Borbone re di Spagna: un'edizione venne realizzata in tre volumi in - folio mezzano, con due sole ottave per pagina; l'edizione in esame, invece, detta "di Napoli", reca tre ottave per facciata, e fu impressa in soli 130 esemplari, di cui 100 con il nome a stampa di uno egli associati sul foglio iniziale di ciascun tomo. Nel 1807, sempre a Parma per i Tipi Bodoniani, uscì una terza impressione del poema. Il tomo I reca, dopo il frontespizio, un'epigrafe dedicatoria dello stampatore a Carlo IV di Borbone su una facciata, cui seguono una poesia in endecasillabi sciolti composta dal conte Gastone Rezzonico della Torre e dedicata allo stesso sovrano, nonché una premessa in prosa di Bodoni al lettore. La cura testuale del poema eroico è opera di Pierantonio Serassi, che dichiarò di essersi basato su annotazioni autografe del Tasso nonché sulle edizioni della Gerusalemme impresse a Parma nel 1581 e a Mantova nel 1584. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo; alcune contenute, superficiali abrasioni alla legatura; interno fresco e marginoso.

        Verklaring van de Geheele Heilige Schrift, door eenigen van de voornaamste Engelsche Godgeleerden.

      Amsterdam, Isaak Tirion, and Jacobus Loveringh 1740. 17 delen in 18 banden, Origineel Leer met ribben en stempels, 4° (Mooie set met de 6 kaarten en 2 tabellen. De Bijbelverklaring is genoemd naar onder meer Simon Patrick, een anglicaanse bisschop die leefde van 1626 tot 1707. Zijn werk vormde de basis voor de commentaren op Genesis tot en met Hooglied. De Nederlandse samenstellers hebben zijn werk aangevuld met de commentaren van Matthew Poole, een non-conformistisch predikant, die in de Engelse Kerk in Amsterdam ligt begraven. Allerlei geografische gegevens zijn ontleend aan de werken van rector en cartograaf Edward Wells. Ook maakten de samenstellers gebruik van de kanttekeningen in de Geneva Bible -de voorloper van de King James Bijbel- en commentaren van andere personen. Het Nieuwe Testament is grotendeels van de baptist John Gill, een autodidact, die goed thuis was in de grondtalen. Hij kan gezien worden als een voorloper van Joseph Charles Philpot. Deze verklaring is een uitstekende aanvulling op de Bijbelverklaring van Matthew Henry.).

        Dissertation sur le cancer des mammelles, ou sans recourir à aucune hipotése, on donne une véritable idée de sa nature, de ses differences, de ses signes & de ses causes, avec la méthode de le traiter fondée sur plusieurs faits de pratique.

      Besançon, chez J.B. Charmet, 1740 - A Bruxelles & se vend à Besançon, chez J.B. Charmet, 1740 ; 1 vol. in-12 (148 x 85 mm), (14), 181, (24) pp., pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches jaspées, coiffe supérieure arasée, un mors partiellement fendu (reliure encore solide), ex-libris gravé du bibliophile et pharmacien de Saint-Etienne Henri Tardivi (1854-1915), intérieur en très bon état. Première et seule édition, très rare. C¿est l'une des rares monographies anciennes sur le cancer du sein. Elle semble seulement précédée par celle de Houppeville (cf. Bibliography, In : Birkett J : The Diseases of the Breast, p. xvi). Parmi les facteurs étiologiques, Vacher évoque le manque d'activité physique et les épreuves de la vie. Il reconnaît l'existence de cancers du sein chez l'homme. Il expose les différents moyens thérapeutiques utilisés de son temps et exprime ses idées personnelles, souvent très pertinentes, basées sur sa propre expérience. Il estime que la chirurgie est le seul moyen efficace. Il préconise une extirpation précoce, et privilégie la tumorectomie à la mammectomie lorsque le cancer est petit, peu profond et non compliqué. Il estime que, dans les tumeurs ulcérées, l'ablation doit intéresser aussi le revêtement cutané. Il décrit les interventions chirurgicales, d'un réalisme saisissant, avec ses détails effrayants, chez des patientes éveillées, angoissées et souffrant le martyre. Cet ouvrage n'est pas cité par de nombreux historiens de la cancérologie (Rather, Shimkin, Haagensen) qui ignoraient peut-être l'existence ou l'importance de ce livre très rare. Il est par contre souvent cité par Rouëssé (Une histoire du cancer du sein en Occident, pp. 7, 14, 45, 50, 52, 68, 90-91, 104, 110, 129, 133-134, 180) et par Darmon (Les cellules folles, pp. 42, 75, 80, 82, 83, 91, 108, 115, 116, 122, 123). Wolff l'avait aussi cité dans son important ouvrage sur l'histoire de la cancérologie (Die Lehre von der Krebskrankheit, vol. 4, p. 588) et Boddice le cite également (Pain and Emotion in Modern History, pp. 23, 29-30, 33-35). Gilles Vacher (ou Le Vacher de la Feutrie) (1693-1760), né au château de Chaleuses, en Bourbonnais, fut le disciple de Morand. Il se fixa à Besançon, où il obtint la place de chirurgien-major (Thiébaud, Médecins et chirurgiens de Franche-Comté, pp.404-406). © S.A.S. Jean-Pierre Aubert.

        AN ACCOUNT OF THE SHIPWRECK OF A DUTCH VESSEL ON THE COAST OF THE ISLE OF QUELPAERT, TOGETHER WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF THE KINGDOM OF COREA [KOREA] Translated from the French

      [London]: Printed for Henry Lintot; and John Osborn, [1740-1750]. [1745].. [1745].. Very good. - Folio, 14 inches high by 9 inches wide. Unbound, removed from a larger volume at some time in the past. [24] pages consisting of the title page and pages 720 through 742, with text printed in 2 columns with a woodcut decorated tailpiece. There is some darkening and occasional foxing with a few corner creases. Page 725 is miscut with the overlapping corner folded in. The edges of the last leaf are slightly chipped. Though the last leaf is detached and some of the leaves are partially detached, the contents are otherwise very good. Complete in itself, this section containing Henry Hamel's "Account of the shipwreck of a Dutch vessel on the coast of the Isle of Quelpaert, together with a description of the kingdom of Corea [Korea]" is extracted and removed from the substantial 6 volume set of Awnsham and John Churchill's "A Collection of Voyages and Travels".One of the earliest reports on the customs, manners and people of Korea. The author of this narrative, Hendrik Hamel, sailed to Batavia on the Sperwer in 1653. From there, they set sail for Japan ferrying Cornelis Caesar, the new governor of Formosa to his new post. Nearing Korea, the ship was shipwrecked on the coast of the Isle of Quelpaert. The crew was captured and brought to Korea where they were held prisoner for 13 years. Hamel and some of his men finally escaped in 1666. They fled to Japan, found refuge at the Dutch factory in Nagasaki, and eventually returned to the Netherlands."This short relation was first printed in Holland by the secretary, as he calls himself, of the ship that perish'd, and was one of those that escap'd, and, after a long captivity had the good fortune to return home. There's nothing in it that carries the face of a fable, invented by a traveller to impose upon the believing world; yet there are some men, who will scarce believe any thing but what they see, and at the same time will not stir an inch from home to be inform'd. These sort of creatures are not to be satisfied as to the credibility of any thing beyond their own capacities. ... the eight men mentioned at the end of this journal were all in Holland, and examin'd by several persons of reputation, concerning the particulars here deliver'd, and they all agreed in them; which seems to render the relation sufficiently authentic. Besides, as the French translator observes in his preface, there's nothing here asserted in the description of Corea, but what agrees with what Palafox, and others that write of the invasion of the Tartars, have said before. ... Thirteen years residence in Corea, was time enough to have given a much more perfect description, and many men in that time would have made it more ample and satisfactory; but the author gave what he had, and I suppose his memoirs were small and ill digested, having leisure enough, but perhaps little inclination, to write in that miserable life, as not knowing whether ever he should obtain his liberty, to present the World with what he writ." -[Quoted from the Preface].

        Carta Nuova dell Arabia

      Amsterdam: Giovanni Battista Albrizzi, 1740. unbound. Map. Uncolored copper plate engraving. Image measures 13.75 x 17.875". Early map of Arabia and surrounding areas distinctly showing the Pearl Bank regions on the southern shore of the Gulf and the western shores of the Red Sea. Minor toning centerfold as expected from the atlas tip in. Giovanni Battista Albrizzi (1698-1777) was a prominent Venetian publisher of books and maps. He inherited his business from his father and was part of a family active in publishing and bookselling in Venice for 150 years. In addition, he edited a weekly bulletin, Novelle della Repubblica delle Lettere, which reviewed and commented on books published throughout Europe. This scarce map is from Atlante Novissimo Che Contiene tutte le parti del Mondo, an Italian edition of De Lisle's Atlas. Albrizzi worked with Isaac Tirion, a Dutch publisher, to update the maps for this edition.

Hoewel de Bergsen polder bij Tholen er met de datum van inpoldering, 1692, op voorkomt, is het gebied rond Bommene, in 1682 ondergelopen, nog steeds niet als zodanig aangegeven. De kaart vertoont nog altijd de fouten van Visscher, hoewel zij een kopie is van de Zeeland-kaart van Jaillot, getuige de Franse benaming van Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, Vlissingen, de Ooster- en Westerschelde.

Contemporary French mottled calf, gilt spine, marbled endpapers. Upper joint starting at bottom, and apart from some minor toning, this is a lovely, unsophisticated copy in contemporary dress. Printed by Prosper Marchand, a Huguenot publisher and journalist who fled France in 1709, the work appeared at the 300th anniversary of the invention of printing. Marchand writes that he produced the book "a la sollicitation de quelques amis qui ont cru que le troisième jubile ou la troisième année séculaire, de l'imprimerie, reveilleroit infailliblement la curiosité du publique touchant l'origine de ce bel art [at the request of some friends who believed that the third jubilee, or the tercentenary of printing, would infallibly wake the public curiosity concerning the origin of this beautiful art]." The allegorical frontspiece by J.V. Schley show Minerva and Mercury, descending from Heaven, granting the gift of printing to Germany who in turn gives it to England, Holland, France, and Italy.

A fine copy of this important early book linking colour and music by the French mathematician Louis Castel, whose main claim to fame is the clavecin oculaire. This ocular harpsichord had sixty small coloured glass panes, each with a curtain that opened when a key was struck. A second, improved model of the harpsichord was demonstrated for a small audience in December of 1754. Pressing a key caused a small shaft to open, in turn allowing light to shine through a piece of stained glass Castel thought of color-music as akin to the lost language of paradise, where all men spoke alike, and he claimed that thanks to his instrument's capacity to paint sounds, even a deaf listener could enjoy music.

Some dampstaining on title and in the inner margin at the beginning and end of the textblock. A fine copy.Erik Molin (1709-55), who probably was born in Gästrikland or Uppland in the eastern part of Sweden, had a passion for pietistic ideas in his youth and in the 1730s he was often criticized by the Church Council for his writings and preachings. In 1734 the right to preach was taken from him and he became the subject of a lengthy court process. The case was put to rest until the autumn of 1735 and during this time Molin chose to disregard the fact that he had been forbidden to preach. The result was that he was asked to leave Sweden, which he refused to do. He was put into custody for four years, after which he was condemned to exile. He travelled to Rostock, Altona, Amsterdam and other cities and during this period he published several works, many of which was written in an attempt to get his exile reversed. "Die wahre und lebendige" is probably the first work that he published in exile. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Histoire secrette du Prince Croque??Etron et de la Princesse Foirette

      ??A Gringuenaude [i.e., Paris?]: [ca. 1740-1780]. 12mo (129 x 76 mm.). viii, 64 pp. Half-title. Expressive woodcut vignette on title (a chamber pot and its contents). Occasional light spotting. 19th-century citron morocco, sides gilt panelled, spine gilt lettered longitudinally, turn-ins gilt, gilt edges, pair of vellum flyleaves, by Koehler, with his signature on verso of front free endpaper. Provenance: Antoine-Augustin Renouard (not found in his catalogue).*** first edition of a silly scatalogical spoof, attributed to a female fairy tale writer. Farts, excrement, latrines, and their Rabelaisian synonyms provide characters' and place names and an endless supply of windy jokes in this ultimately tragic love tale. The hero Prince CroquÂ?Etron (Sh*t-eater), son of the sneaky Roi de Vesse (Silent-But-Deadly-Fart), falls in love with the lovely Princess Foirette (Diarrhea), daughter of his fatherÂ?s enemy the open-hearted Roi Petaut (Loud Fart). Abetted by King VesseÂ?s minister Constipati, whose secret liaison with one of FoiretteÂ?s governesses, Lady Clisterine (Enema) makes him take the PrinceÂ?s side, CroquÂ?Etron persuades his father to replace war with dynastic marriage, a gentler path to territorial aggrandizement. Love vanquishes all, King Petaud gives Prince CroquÂ?Etron a handsome commode chair, and the Kingdom of Caca finds peace, but the newly married lovers meet their demise at the hands of the evil Prince Gadouard (Manure), who drowns them in vats of perfume, and is punished by the king with the opposite fate, being buried alive in you know what. This clever extended dirty joke, complete with satirical preface and printing permission (dated from Laval, 1 Sept. 1701), and a final selection of verses sung at the royal marriage, is the most daring of the tales attributed to Mlle. de Lubert, daughter of a Président de Parlement, friend of the salonnière Mme de Graffigny, and dedicatee of two poems by Voltaire. Little is known of her life, other than what can be gleaned from references to her in literary correspondence of the period. Â?Mad about fairy-talesÂ? (Bull. du bibliophile), she wrote over a dozen novels, novellas, poems, and fairy tales, Â?most published between 1743 and 1756. Her tales are humourous and, at times, irreverentÂ? (Haase). This was her only literary success, if it was indeed hers. Stanford University holds a manuscript of the text, with textual variants, dated (falsely) 1716: attribution to Mlle de Lubert is questioned by the Stanford cataloguers; however, the work has been included in her literary corpus since at least the 19th century, and, if not by Mlle. de Lubert, it certainly parodies her own works and thus must date to the second half of the century. The publishing history was garbled by Gay, who describes two 18th-century editions, dating the supposed first ca. 1701, based on the facetious permission dÂ?imprimer. The only 18th-century edition located in library catalogues is this one, usually dated, again after Gay, [ca. 1790], but whose typography indicates an earlier date. Reprints appeared in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This copy, bound with his signature vellum flyleaves, may have belonged to Antoine-Augustin Renouard, but does not appear in his library catalogue.

        Lettre autographe signée.

      Fortoiseau, 15. VIII. 1740. - 8 pages in-4. [À Évrard Titon du Tillet]. Très belle lettre mêlée de vers à l'auteur du "Parnasse françois". Il a presque terminé sa lecture de la "Description du Parnasse" et des "Essais sur les honneurs": "il n'est point d'effort que vous ne fassiez pour immortaliser les grands hommes qui font honneur à la France. Ce qui me touche le plus sensiblement dans vos travaux, c'est votre bon cœur, votre goût exquis, et votre amour pour notre patrie. [ ] Vous étiez né pour être Romain [.]". Il loue son œuvre et ses nobles idées. "Non seulement j'aime tout ce qui peut contribuer a la gloire de notre Nation, mais je n'ai oublié aucuns efforts dans les pays étrangers ou j'ai vécu si longtems, pour la défendre contre les atteintes des prejugez, de l'injustice et de l'envie, en cela bien différent de notre Voltaire si estimable d'ailleurs, qui ose faire un point d'honneur d'exalter nos voisins à nos depens [.]". - Et de citer une épigramme inspirée par l'indignation: "Un grand auteur ose avancer | Que le François enseigne à plaire, | Et que l'Anglois montre à penser. | Au second point je suis contraire, | On ne sauroit me le prouver. | Or voici que je hazarde; | L'anglois peut m'apprendre à rêver, | Mais à penser? Que Dieu m'en garde [.]". Destouches aime de plus en plus la solitude, parce qu'elle l'éloigne du fracas d'un monde dont il a senti tous les défauts et tous les ridicules; il félicite l'auteur du Parnasse de son dessein de se confiner dans une aimable retraite: "vous y trouverez mille agréments inconnus à ceux qui ont toujours voltigé dans le tourbillon [ ] vous y eprouverez qu'on n'est veritablement heureux, qu'autant que les autres ne font point notre bonheur, et vous concurrez enfin que ce n'est point ici bas qu'il faut le chercher [.]". Il cite un quatrain à cet effet, puis reprend : "Vous déplorerez l'aveuglement de ces hommes présomptueux qui pensent que leur merite leur tient lieu de tout, et que le bonheur consiste à faire beaucoup parler de soy; et vous vous écrîrez avec Sénèque le Tragique; | Malheur à l'homme prévenu | Qui sur son mérite se fonde, | Et qui, connu de tout le monde, | Meurt sans jamais s'etre connu. | Vous parviendrez facilement à penser de la sorte. [ ] Mais du moins différez votre retraitte jusqu'au printems. Se retirer à la campagne pendant l'hyver, c'est commencer par où l'on doit finir. [ ] Attendez que la belle saison vous invite à quitter Paris". Destouches ira le rejoindre. Il y a des auteurs "qui se piquent d'être tout esprit dans leurs productions; et vous, Monsieur, vous êtes tout cœur dans vos ouvrages [.]". Il prie d'excuser son griffonnage: "je suis comme Made de Sévigné, j'écris tout d'un trait, et je deviendrois froid et languissant, par conséquent très ennuyeux, si je mettois au niveau chaque mot [.]".

        L'Optique des Couleurs

      1740. CASTEL, Louis B. L'Optique des Couleurs, Fondée Sur Les Simples Observations, & Tournée Surtout À La Pratique De La Peinture, De La Teinture & Des Autres Arts Coloristes. [2], xviij, 487, [9] pp. Illustrated with 2 leaves of plates. 12mo., bound in contemporary calf. Paris: Chez Briasson, 1740. First Edition. A fine copy of this important early book linking colour and music by the French mathematician Louis Castel, whose main claim to fame is the clavecin oculaire. This ocular harpsichord had sixty small coloured glass panes, each with a curtain that opened when a key was struck. A second, improved model of the harpsichord was demonstrated for a small audience in December of 1754. Pressing a key caused a small shaft to open, in turn allowing light to shine through a piece of stained glass Castel thought of color-music as akin to the lost language of paradise, where all men spoke alike, and he claimed that thanks to his instrument's capacity to paint sounds, even a deaf listener could enjoy music.

        The History of the Valorous and Witty Knight-Errant Don Quixote of the Mancha - Vols I, III, & IV (of four) - RARE

      D Midwinter, W Innys et al 1740 - Hard to find later Shelton edition as we've been looking in vain for the missing Volume II of this set for many years - indeed, we've not come across any copies of this 1740 Shelton edition at all, so must be pretty rare. All three volumes are in a similar condition, original calf covers are scuffed and worn as one would expect from 275-year old books, but the bindings remain tight, thin gilt border on both covers plus numbers on spine which has five raised bands, page edges tanned, but there is very little actual foxing in any of the volumes, tho there are brown shadows on the pastedowns and feps, owner's name on top of fep on all three vols, written as Saint Richard(?) Burges, there are 17 lovely new engravings "From the French of Coyper", tho another 3 or 4 seem to have been cut out. Includes 38 pages of introductory material in Vol 1, plus a 34-page index at the back of Vol 4. We'd be asking £2000 upwards were the set complete, so price takes into account the missing volume.

        Histoire secrette du Prince Croque’Etron et de la Princesse Foirette

      ?"A Gringuenaude [i.e., Paris?]: [ca. 1740-1780]. 12mo (129 x 76 mm.). viii, 64 pp. Half-title. Expressive woodcut vignette on title (a chamber pot and its contents). Occasional light spotting. 19th-century citron morocco, sides gilt panelled, spine gilt lettered longitudinally, turn-ins gilt, gilt edges, pair of vellum flyleaves, by Koehler, with his signature on verso of front free endpaper. Provenance: Antoine-Augustin Renouard (not found in his catalogue).*** first edition of a silly scatalogical spoof, attributed to a female fairy tale writer. Farts, excrement, latrines, and their Rabelaisian synonyms provide characters' and place names and an endless supply of windy jokes in this ultimately tragic love tale. The hero Prince Croqu?'Etron (Sh*t-eater), son of the sneaky Roi de Vesse (Silent-But-Deadly-Fart), falls in love with the lovely Princess Foirette (Diarrhea), daughter of his father?'s enemy the open-hearted Roi Petaut (Loud Fart). Abetted by King Vesse?'s minister Constipati, whose secret liaison with one of Foirette?'s governesses, Lady Clisterine (Enema) makes him take the Prince?'s side, Croqu?'Etron persuades his father to replace war with dynastic marriage, a gentler path to territorial aggrandizement. Love vanquishes all, King Petaud gives Prince Croqu?'Etron a handsome commode chair, and the Kingdom of Caca finds peace, but the newly married lovers meet their demise at the hands of the evil Prince Gadouard (Manure), who drowns them in vats of perfume, and is punished by the king with the opposite fate, being buried alive in you know what. This clever extended dirty joke, complete with satirical preface and printing permission (dated from Laval, 1 Sept. 1701), and a final selection of verses sung at the royal marriage, is the most daring of the tales attributed to Mlle. de Lubert, daughter of a Président de Parlement, friend of the salonnière Mme de Graffigny, and dedicatee of two poems by Voltaire. Little is known of her life, other than what can be gleaned from references to her in literary correspondence of the period. ?"Mad about fairy-tales?" (Bull. du bibliophile), she wrote over a dozen novels, novellas, poems, and fairy tales, ?"most published between 1743 and 1756. Her tales are humourous and, at times, irreverent?" (Haase). This was her only literary success, if it was indeed hers. Stanford University holds a manuscript of the text, with textual variants, dated (falsely) 1716: attribution to Mlle de Lubert is questioned by the Stanford cataloguers; however, the work has been included in her literary corpus since at least the 19th century, and, if not by Mlle. de Lubert, it certainly parodies her own works and thus must date to the second half of the century. The publishing history was garbled by Gay, who describes two 18th-century editions, dating the supposed first ca. 1701, based on the facetious permission d?'imprimer. The only 18th-century edition located in library catalogues is this one, usually dated, again after Gay, [ca. 1790], but whose typography indicates an earlier date. Reprints appeared in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This copy, bound with his signature vellum flyleaves, may have belonged to Antoine-Augustin Renouard, but does not appear in his library catalogue. OCLC lists 3 copies in American libraries (Harvard, U. Indiana Kinsey Institute, U. Ottawa).
