        DISCOURS SUR LES DIFFERENTES FIGURES DES ASTRES Ou l'on donne l'Explication des Taches lumineuses qu'on a observées dans le Ciel: Des Etoiles qui paroissent s'allumer & s'eteindre:

      Paris G. Martin Jean-Baptiste Coignard & les Freres Guerin 1742 - De celles qui paroissent changer de grandeur: De l'Anneau de Saturne: Et des effets que peuvent produire les Cometes. SECOND EDITION 1742 enlarged, (first published in 1732), French text, 8vo, approximately 200 x 120 mm, 7¾ x 4¾ inches, engraved frontispiece printed on a blue ground, woodcut diagrams in the text, pages (16), 176, half-title present, bound in full antique mottled calf, raised bands, gilt decoration in compartments, gilt lettered morocco label, all edges red, marbled endpapers. Spine showing wear, 10 mm (½ inch) repair at head, tiny chips at tail and to 3 of the raised bands, hinges starting to crack at top, corners slightly worn, front inner paper hinge cracked, sign of removal of small bookplate to front pastedown, occasional slight light foxing, otherwise contents very bright and clean. Binding tight and firm. A good sound copy of an important astronomical book. Maupertuis (1698-1759) studied mathematics in Paris and became converted to Newtonian mechanics during a visit to London in 1728. This was his first published work and is considered the first unequivocal Newtonian text to come from a French scientist. "In it he objected to Cartesianism on the ground that it was unable to explain why Kepler's laws should hold." In his second book La Figure de la Terre (1738) he published the results of an expedition with the scientist Clairaut to Lapland to measure as accurately as possible the length of a degree of longitude, by which he was able to prove Newton's theory that the earth was flattened at the poles.

        A Present for an Apprentice: or, a Sure Guide To gain both Esteem and Estate; With Rules for his Conduct to his Master, and in the World. By a late Lord Mayor of London.

      London: No publisher, 1742 - Duodecimo gathered and signed in half sheets (140 x 92 mm). Recent grey paper boards, title label to front board printed in black. With the 3-page contents issued at the rear repositioned after the title page. Trimmed in the binding process, a very good copy. Early edition of the politician's compendium of practical hints on everyday subjects, first published in 1740 at the height of his reputation. Barnard (c.1685-1764) was elected lord mayor in 1737. A Present for an Apprentice is in the form of a lengthy letter addressed to the writer's son, and is "imbued with strong Christian moralizing" (ODNB). It is the only work which can be confidently attributed to Barnard.

        Chorographia Britanniae

      London: (1742-[c.46]). Octavo (170 x 105 mm.), full modern blind panelled mottled calf. With raised bands, ornate blind decoration to compartments, red calf gilt titled label to spine. Engraved double page title with minor crease, engraved double page dedication and 53 double page plates numbered 1-50 which include 7 tables, 6 general and 40 county maps. Engraved throughout and in fine full early wash colour. Some centrefold restoration to the chart of England and Wales, some loss to margin of Cornwall reinstated, Lancashire and Lincolnshire restored and some minor centrefold splits repaired, otherwise a reasonable example in a rare form.; This is an example of the 'Chorographia Britannia' in full early wash colour. First published in 1742 this is a later edition bearing the revised imprint of John Clark on the title page. He had joined Charles Hitch and William Henry Toms in the ownership of the atlas by November 1745 when a newly worded advert was placed in the 'Evening Post'. Clark died in April 1746 and was succeeded by his wife Anne. It is the first pocket size English county atlas published in the eighteenth century. It is surprising it took so long for one to be published considering the runaway success of the 'Britannia Depicta' of 1720. Two similar atlases were to be published shortly after, the 'Geographia Magnae Britanniae' by Thomas Osborne, 1748, and the 'Small English Atlas' by Thomas Kitchin and Thomas Jefferys, 1749.

The dedication is to the opposition reformer Lord Talbot, to whom Fielding recommends Aristophanes as one who "exerted that Genius in the Service of his Country." A footnote to Act II, scene 5, references Fielding's distaste towards those who abandoned their opposition to Walpole when he was made Lord Ormond, following his resignation in 1742: "To make use of popular interest, and the character of patriotism, in order to betray one's country, is perhaps the most flagitious of all Crimes" (p. 57). Uncommon on the market, with the last copy sold at auction in 1982 according to ABPC. Cross III, p. 307.

I adskillige af komedierne optræder jøder som faste komediefigurer på linie med læger, advokater, bønder, officerer og vægtere. De er oftest pengeudlånere eller udlejere af maskeradeklæder og de karakteriseres ved at tale gebrokkent sprog. Holbergs Jødiske Historie er den første samlede oversigt på dansk over jødernes gamle og nyere historie. I modsætning til den kritiske holdning, man måske kunne udlede af komedierne, giver Holberg et yderst sympatisk billede af jødefolket." Paul Johansen 22, 1-2. Ehrencron-Müller XI,301. Bibl.

A fine set. Viner "was more [interested] in the literature of the law than in its practice. He began to collect notes of recently decided cases in 1703, but devoted the greater part of his life to the exhaustive arrangement of existing legal materials under alphabetical headings, based on the works of his predecessors Robert Brooke and Henry Rolle. His General abridgment of law and equity. was published in 23 volumes between 1742 and 1757 (the final volume posthumously). This was printed, reputedly under Viner's direction at his own home, on paper watermarked with his monogram, published by him personally, and the earlier volumes sold from his chambers in the Temple. Though unwieldy to use, it was the most comprehensive attempt to render accessible the legal materials printed before his time, and it remains an invaluable key to these works" (ODNB). The work was "printed for the author, by agreement with the law-patentees". At the beginning of each volume is a list of those who authorised the publication, including Thomas Parker (nephew of Thomas Parker, first earl of Macclesfield), and the seventeenth volume of this work is dedicated to him by the author.

Parliamentary Act for further Regulating the Plantation Trade; and for the Relief of Merchants Importing Prize Goods from America

      Published in London, Printed by Thomas Baskett and Robert Baskett, Printers to the King's most Excellent Majesty; 1742. softcover. This first edition is in Very good+ to Near Fine condition. pp. 711-723. This if the first edition of the 18th century Parliamentary Act to further regulate the Plantation Trade and merchants importing goods from the American colonies. This act reaffirms the Navigation Acts from the 17th century and further trade regulations with the colonies. This is the earliest official printing available of this act, from the Sessional Volumes of Parliament. Acts such as this, predating 1796 are very scarce as a maximun of 1,100 copies were only ever printed at that time, which were solely available for the Members of the Houses of Parliament, the great officers and offices of state and the judiciary (ref. Report of the Committee for the Promulgation of the Statutes, 1796).There is some slight rubbing to the covers, and some pencil writing to the title label affixed to the front cover. The corners of the covers are a little creased, but internally this Act is in excellent condition with just the occasional spotor toning to show for its age. In all it is in remarkable condition for an 18th century piece.This is an exceptional piece of British trade and colonialisation history from the 18th century that is very hard to come by and, as such, would be an incredibly valuable acquisition for scholars and collectors of this period.
