      per i Fratelli ManfrediniOpera completa in 23 tomi raccolti in 11 volumi, dedicata al Nobiluomo Niccolò Puccini. Cm.19,7x12,8. Pg.5772 complessive. Buone legature in piena pergamena coeva. Doppi tasselli con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi. L'erudito Juan Andres nacque a Planes presso Valencia nel 1740. Gesuita, dopo l'espulsione di questi dalla Spagna fu a Mantova, Ferrara, a Parma e in seguito a Napoli, ove divenne Prefetto della Biblioteca Reale. Morì ormai cieco a Roma nel 1817. La presente Opera, la sua principale, fu scritta in italiano e costituisce un vastissimo affresco della letteratura di ogni tempo, particolarmente attento alla influenza della cultura araba su quella occidentale. "Essa rappresenta il primo tentativo, felicemente riuscito, di una sintesi della Storia letteraria, o meglio della cultura, poichè l'Autore, secondo le idee del tempo e il suo spirito enciclopedico, comprende sotto il nome di letteratura anche le opere propriamente scientifiche, di Filosofia, di Scienze Esatte, di Medicina, di Storia Naturale" (Camillo Berra).

        Nouvelle instruction pour les confitures, les liqueurs, et les fruits : ou` l'on apprend a` confire toutes sortes de fruits, tant secs que liquides; & divers ouvrages de sucre qui sont du fait des officiers & confiseurs / avec la maniere de bien ordonner un fruit. Suite du Nouveau cuisinier royal & bourgeois.

      1740 - 12mo., sometime bound in full vellum with morocco spine label; pp.[8] + 518 + 21 leaves. With 4 folding engraved plates. Contemporary ink name on title-page, some browning and occasional spotting, boards slightly springing, otherwise a very good copy. "Nouvelle edition, revu^e, corrigee, & beaucoup augmentee, avec de nouveaux desseins de tables." François Massialot, born in Limoges, 1660, died in Paris, 1733. He was a French chef who served as chef de cuisine (officier de bouche) to various illustrious personages, including Philippe I, Duke of Orlà ans, the brother of Louis XIV, and his son Philippe II, Duke of Orlà ans, who was first duc de Chartres then the Regent, as well as the Duc d'Aumont, the Cardinal d’Estrà es, and the Marquis de Louvois. His ‘Nouveau Cuisinier Royal et Bourgeois’ first appeared, anonymously, as a single volume in 1691. His other cookbook, ‘Nouvelle Instruction pour les Confitures, les Liqueurs et les Fruits’ appeared, also anonymously, in 1692, and was reprinted several times in the eighteenth century, as offered here. Massialot describes himself in his preface as "a cook who dares to qualify himself royal", and it is not without cause, for the meals which he describes."have all been served at court or in the houses of princes, and of people of the first rank." An innovation in Massialot's book was the alphabetical listing of recipes, a step toward the first culinary dictionary. Meringues make their first appearance under their familiar name with Massialot, who is also credited with Crême Brulà e, in which the sugar topping was melted and burnt with a special dedicated red-hot fire iron. Another first with Massialot is two recipes in which chocolate is an ingredient: in a sauce for wigeon and in a sweet custard. Until then, chocolate was consumed solely as a drink. Massialot's works were translated into English as ‘The Court and Country Cook' 1702, and again were often reprinted. Vicaire 455. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A New Discourse of Trade,

      London: J. Hodges, W. Meadows [& 4 others in London],, [1740?]. wherein are Recommended several weighty Points relating to Companies of Merchants; The Act of Navigation, Naturalization of Strangers, and our Woollen Manufactures. The Balance of Trade, and the Nature of Plantations; with their Consequences in relation to the Kingdom, are seriously discussed. Methods for the Employment and Maintenance of the Poor are proposed. And some Proposals for erecting a Court of Merchants, for determining Controversies, relating to Maritime Affairs, and for a Law for transferring of Bills of Debts, are humbly Offered. To which is added, A short, but most excellent Treatise of Interest. The fourth edition. Octavo (162 × 95 mm). Contemporary mottled sheepskin, double gilt rule on sides and spine, dark red morocco label, red speckled edges. Duplicate gathering of signature G (pp 99-122) bound in; with the terminal advertisement leaf not cited by Kress. Large library stamp of "Bond" on front free endpaper. Binding somewhat worn, joints cracked but cords holding, with some loss of leather. An attractive sound copy, clean and with good margins, in a period binding. First published in 1690 as A Discourse about Trade. Sir Josiah Child (c.1631 - 1699) economic writer and merchant. "In 1690 he published under his own name the comprehensive Discourse about Trade, which included his Proposals for the Relief and Employment of the Poor, which had appeared earlier as an undated pamphlet. This work was reprinted in 1693 under the title A New Discourse on Trade to coincide with a new attempt in parliament to reduce the legal maximum rate of interest ( ... ) Child acquired considerable fame as an economic writer in his own day and was both widely read and frequently quoted. His works were reprinted continuously during the eighteenth century and published in French in 1754. He exerted influence because of his fluent and persuasive pen, his debating skills, and his obvious success in and experience of business" (ODNB). As Geoffrey Poitras notes "Child is another of the truly remarkable individuals populating the early history of financial economics. Child has some status as a noteworthy, pre-Smithian economist ( ... ) His status as Governor of the East India Company was matched by his stock trading acumen" (The Early History of Financial Economics, 1478-1776, 2000, p.322).

      Amstelaedami: Apud Adrianum Wor & Haeredes Gerardi 8vo (22.7 cm, 9"). Added engr. title-page, [18], 291, [1] pp.. 1740 Sole edition of these neo-Latin poems, written by the brother of noted classical scholar Jacques Philippe d'Orville. The volume is illustrated with a mythic-themed, copper-engraved added title-page and head- and tailpiece vignettes done by A. vander Laan. All the engravings are gorgeous, and some extend almost to a half page in size. The main title-page is printed in black and red. Most of the poetry here is "occasional" — there are several epithalamia as well as elegies and odes honoring various "noble youths" and such figures as Pieter Burmann, Hadrian Reland, and the author's brother Jacque Philippe. Some works celebrate (and are in the styles of) the great ancient Latin poets; at least one, and the longest, is explicitly (Christian) religious; two are in Greek. Uncommon: OCLC and NUC Pre-1956 find only four U.S. holdings. Contemporary vellum, covers framed and panelled in blind with blind-tooled central lozenge, spine with hand-inked title; front cover slightly warped, binding dust-soiled. Front pastedown institutionally rubber-stamped. Scattered spots of light to moderate foxing. Errata (final page) lined through in ink.

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 (HISTORY OF PRINTING) First edition. 4to.

        The Lives of the Professors of Gresham College: To Which is Prefixed The Life of the Founder, Sir Thomas Gresham. With An Appendix, consisting of Orations, Lectures, and Letters, Written by the Professors

      London: John Moore, 1740 Book. Very Good. Full-Leather. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. [frontispiece and 4 engravings][4] xxiv, pp 1-338, [2], 156 A subscriber's copy of the first edition of Ward's Gresham College, inscribed and aggressively annotated by Christopher Wren, self-appointed protector of his father Sir Christopher Wren's reputation as summarised by Ward in this work. The book is bound in handsome twentieth century speckled calf, gilt, with new endpapers and a little trimming to the textblock. Christopher Wren who oversaw the topping out of his father's masterpiece, St Paul's Cathedral, in 1710 helped shape his father's reputation in his old age, collaborating on 'Parentalia, or, Memoirs of the family of the Wrens' which only appeared after his own death. It is no surprise therefore to find his printed name in the Subscribers' list of a book intimately involved with his father's life, and his ownership signature: 'E Libris Chr.i Wren' on the title page. Wren's annotations are amusingly dismissive about his own son, Stephen Wren (later the editor of Parentalia) as 'a rare fool' and he is equally critical of Ward's attempt to profile Sir Christopher, noting in the index against Ward's account of his 'person and character' that 'Both of these awkwardly and foolishly Described' and that the biography is: 'nothing to the purpose'. Ward's interpretation of his forebears attracts particular ire from the annotator who observes: 'His Descent which from this Book is made out to be none at all'. The pattern of annotation appears to have continued in the book after Wren's death with a note about the disposal of the long lost lunar globe devised by Sir Christopher Wren, that 'it was afterwards sold at a publick auction by his Grandson Stephen Wren' as well as other marginalia. Sir Christopher Wren's biographer Lisa Jardine has described him as 'an outstandingly gifted individual born at a defining moment in English history [whose] diverse talents were more exceptional by far than a single building, however magnificent, could convey'. This remarkable Wren family association copy allows the process of reputation building to be laid bare.

Contemporary Leather with ribbed back, Folio (with the portrait of the author and 1 architectonic engraving. The pages are very clear. Edward Pococke 1604-1691, was an English Orientalist and biblical scholar. He made himself master of Arabic, which he not only read but spoke fluently, studied Hebrew, Samaritan, Syriac, and Ethiopic, and associated of friendly terms with learned Muslims and Jews who helped him in collecting manuscripts. Pococke's observation of eastern manners and natural history served him in good stead as a commentator on the Old Testament (cf. his famous correction of 'wailing like the dragons' in Micah 1, into 'howling like the jackals') As a pastor he was devoted and indefatigable. The theological works of Pococke were collected in two volumes, and published in 1740 with a curious account of his life and writings by Leonard Twells.).

      A Leide [Leiden]: Chez Jean & Herman Verbeek, 1740.. [10],[3]-204pp. plus 29 folding plates of plans and a folding table. Quarto. Contemporary calf. Binding rather rubbed, chipped and scraped, with crack toward top of upper joint, foretips worn, a bit of foxing to title and terminal leaves, internally very good. The author (1633 - 1707) is regarded as one of the foremost military engineers of the 17th century, and was as skilled in the planning of attack as he was in the planning of defense and fortification. He advised Louis XIV on the best means of fortifying France's borders, and between 1667 and 1707, he undertook the upgrading of fortifications around nearly 300 French cities, and directed the building of 37 new fortresses and fortified harbors. His various works on military topics, as well as on a range of economic subjects, were widely translated and published, and those on fortification served as virtual standard texts on the subject. The plates include both general plans and details of forts, battery emplacements, fields of fire, etc.
