All the boards are attached (though some are slightly loose) and the internal pages are tight. The front stuckdowns have an owner bookplate and a handwritten 1818 library inscription. There are watermarks and some small stains to some of the margins (mainly to the outer pages) but the pages are otherwise clean. Extensive photographs available and inspection is welcome at our Sydney premises. Extremely heavy, 24kg unpacked. Will need shipping in several boxes and overseas shipping costs are likely to be prohibitive.

        Lectures on Poetry. Read in the Schools of Natural Philosophy at OxfordÉTranslated from the Latin, With additional Notes.

      London: Printed for C. Hitch and C. DavisÉ 1742. - Trapp (1697-1747) was the first professor of poetry at Oxford, taking up the chair on July 14, 1708, and holding it for ten years. The lectures were first published in 1711 in Latin as Praelectiones Poeticae. The above translation is by Rev. William Clarke and William Bowyer, who have provided "additional Notes." In The Art of Discrimination (1964), Ralph Cohen notes that "although Trapp referred to 'description' as a literary device which had been practised by the ancients, he offered to extend the meaning of 'description' so that it referred to rural objects as well as to human action, and he sought to extend the meaning of poetry to include illustrations [reflection] as well as imitation [description]." Trapp's Lectures on Poetry provide a very good resume of early eighteenth-century ideas about the theoretical and practical foundations of poetry. From time to time, he does give glimpses of originality, e.g., in his description of metaphor, which has been described as advanced for its day. Otherwise, the work impresses with its non-nonsense approach, its lack of uncertainty and diffuseness about subject matter. For example, poetry is briskly defined in the second lecture as "An Art of imitating or illustrating in metrical Numbers every Being in Nature, and every object of the Imagination, for the Delight and Improvement of Mankind." This abundantly clear approach continues throughout his book, in which he considers the nature and origin of poetry in general, the style of poetry, beauty of thought or elegance and sublimity in poetry, epigrammatic poetry, elegies, pastorals, didactic poetry, lyric poetry, satire, drama, comedy and tragedy, and the epic. He is particularly interesting on the different passions inspired by comedy and tragedy, and surprisingly, does not seem to regard tragedy as superior to comedy, only different, noting that only a few are pleased by scenes of sorrow, while everyone is pleased with mirth. As a guide to received opinion about poetics in the early eighteenth century, Trapp's Lectures are exemplary. Twelvemo. [26], 358 pp. Contemporary sheepskin with gilt red morocco spine label. Front joint neatly restored, top of spine chipped, corners slightly worn. A very good copy. First edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Censura de historias fabulosas. Obra posthuma de don. Publícala don Gregorio Mayans i Siscar.

      Valencia, Antonio Bordazar de Artazu 1742 - Fol. (30,6 x 20,5 cm). Plena piel de época, lomo cuajado, con nervios y tejuelo, punto de lectura en seda verde. La Censura -que Nicolás Antonio dejó manuscrita- denunciaba los llamados “falsos cronicones” forjados por el jesuita Jerónimo Román de la Higuera, supuestos textos de los siglos IV a X donde se inventaban o confirmaban leyendas sobre santos locales, fundación de Iglesias o antigüedad de linajes; así encontraron amplia audiencia al halagar la religiosidad ignorante con mentiras piadosas, el nacionalismo español -en lo relativo a la predicación de Santiago en España-, el orgullo local, las pretensiones de supremacía de ciertas sedes o las de primacía de algunas iglesias -por ejemplo, el Pilar de Zaragoza frente a la Seo-, y la voluntad de encumbramiento de determinadas familias. Los cronicones eran el último episodio de la más laboriosa y pintoresca falsificación de la Historia de España, la venida de Santiago y la localización de sus restos en Compostela. Mayans no tocó el espinoso asunto de Santiago en su prólogo a la Censura, ni lo había hecho, más allá de los cronicones, Nicolás Antonio; pero la conexión era obvia, y la persecución se desató inmediatamente. La Inquisición no aceptó la denuncia, procedente de la colegiata del Sacromonte de Granada, pero sí el Consejo de Castilla, presidido por un cardenal, y ordenó recoger la obra en 1743. Mayans vio así herida de muerte la Academia Valenciana que había fundado para poner en práctica su proyecto de crítica de la Historia de España y de sus fuentes. Nunca concluyó la continuación de la obra de Nicolás Antonio, como había planeado. [Guillermo Carnero] Buen ejemplar, muy limpio y con bella encuadernación de época.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O. u. D. - 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Reizender Brief an ihre Schwester Wilhelmine, die Ehefrau des Leipziger Kupferstechers Christian Gottlieb Geyser (1742-1803): "Warum hast Du die beyden Gemäldchen nicht gleich in E[utritzsch] behalten? ich schicke sie durch Justus wieder hinaus, und übrigens werden wir uns wohl vergleichen, da ich sehr gern die kleinen Gemälde von de[m]selben Gegenstande haben möchte, das Eine ist sehr schön; bey dem Andern, wo bey dem Deinigen der Dame die Beinchen fehlen, fehlt in dem meinigen, dem jungen Herrn das Gesichtchen, doch was thut das? [.] Gestern hat Schnorr das Geld von Voßen gebracht, an Mad: Berg habe ich geschrieben, und hoffe auf [A]ntwort. Neuigkeiten weiß ich nicht; die Pastorin Hindenburg ist ohne Trost, mit verhängten Zügeln sind die Pers. nacher Leip[zig] gejagt worden, um Dr. Kilian den [W]undermann, zu holen, allein alle menschl. Hülfe war umsonst [.]". - Der Maler und Bildhauer Adam Friedrich Oeser (1717-1799) war von 1765 bis 1768 in Leipzig der Zeichenlehrer des Studenten Goethe gewesen; mit Oesers Tochter Friederike stand Geothe in freundschaftlichem Verkehr und hielt mit ihr auch nach seinen Leipziger Jahren brieflich Kontakt. - Aus der Sammlung Künzel; leicht fleckig und gebräunt; kleine Randschäden hinterlegt.

        Twelve new Designs of English Butterflies: Creatures whose Elegance and Variety of Beauty demand our Admiration ...

      London, B. Wilkes, 1742. Folio (410 x 310mm). 13 hand-coloured engraved plates including the dedication. Bound up with: WILKES, B. Directions for making a collection. (London n.d.). pp. 1. Later marbled boards. First edition, first issue. Lisney in his 'Bibliography of British Lepidoptera' gives an extensive description of the first, second issue and the second Bowles's edition. "There was no true title to the plates now known as the 'Twelve New Designs', although there was certainly a 'title-page' of sorts. There were actually thirteen engraved plates, the first being a dedication 'To the Worthy Members of the Aurelian Society,' describing in its text 'Twelve New Designs of English Butterflies' to follow, hence the commonly accepted name (even though moths as well as butterflies are depicted). Twelve plates with geometrical designs of numerous British Lepidoptera follow the dedication leaf, which is in itself a 'design' as it includes a floral rondo surrounded by larvae and foodplants" (Wilkinson, R.S. in his essay on Wilkes, preceeding the Classey reprint of 'Twelve new Designs')./DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING A COLLECTION: Lisney 184. The second copy known, untill the present copy, the only copy known to have survived is the one in the British Museum (Natural History) (see Wilkinson p. 7). The heading of this folio broadsheet reads as follows: 'In order to oblige such Persons as may be desirous to make a Collection of Moths and Butterflies, though unacquainted with the Manner how, it is judged proper to lay down the following Directions.' The text is printed in two columns on one side of a single sheet. 'This folio broadsheet containing instructions to collectors was undoubtedly on sale at the same time as the 'Twelve new Designs of English Butterflies', but was at no time considered part of that work' (Lisney p. 123). '... the most momentous innovations mentioned in the 'Collecting Directions' is the use of the clap net, a design which would dominate British entomology for more than a hundred years' (Wilkinson p. 7)./A fine copy with excellent colouring of the plates, except for some very slight discolouration of the paper due to faint dampstaining.//Nissen ZBI, 4411.

        The Other Side of the Question,

      London: T. Cooper,, 1742. Or an Attempt to Rescue the Characters of the Two Royal Sisters Q. Mary and Q. Anne, Out of the Hands of [Sarah Jennings Churchill] the D[owager] D[uchess] of [Malborough], in which All the Remarkables in her Grace's late Account are stated in their full Strength, and as fully answer'd; the Conduct of Several Noble Persons is justify'd; and all the necessary Lights are thrown on our Court-History from the Revolution, to the Change of the Ministry in 1710. In a Letter to Her Grace, by a Woman of Quality. Octavo (199 × 118 mm). Contemporary, spine gilt in compartments, latterly retooled, morocco label, double gilt rule to boards. Bookplate of the Viscount Downe. Spine rubbed, corners nicked, some marks to covers, endpapers tanned, pages somewhat cockled. Overall a firm copy in good condition. First edition. An intriguing and amusing document of court politics in 18th century Britain: this volume, packaged as the work of "A Woman of Quality" but in fact written by the Grub Street author James Ralph, was intended as a refutation of "An account of the conduct of the Dowager Duchess of Malborough, from her first coming to court, to the year 1710", a memoir documenting the meteoric rise of Sarah Jennings in becoming the Duchess of Malborough, close friends (though they later fell out) with Queen Anne and one of the most influential women of her day, written at the dictation of the Duchess by the historian Nathaniel Hooke. Between these two works, one has in effect a cat-fight between two noblewomen being ghostwritten by two male authors of modest means. In spite of this, the bitchy snobbery of Ralph's text is amusingly palpable, "But the World will by no means be persuaded to endure, that you should set up your own Statue in the Place of hers, who raised you out of the Dust, if I may be allowed to borrow a pointed Phrase of your own; and without whom, 'tis more than possible, Posterity would never have known that such a Person as your Grace, a Daughter of Mrs. Jennings, ever had a Being." James Ralph was an American-born poet and historian who first came to London with his friend Benjamin Franklin, and was satirised in Pope's Dunciad.

        Shells] plate 92.

      Florence 1742 - Hand-coloured engraving, finished with silver leaf. Dimensions: 380 by 250mm. (15 by 10inches). From "Index Testarum Conchyliorum", first edition. Giuseppe Menabuoni and Antonio Pazzi were both Italian painters and printmakers and Niccolò Gualtieri was a medical doctor and professor at the University of Pisa, whose avocation was the study of molluscs. He devised a system of classification of the shells for this book, which was admired by the zoologists, such as Jean-Baptiste Lamarck. Menabuoni's splendid plates reproduce specimens of Gualtieri's shells, some of which are still in the collection of the Museum of Natural History and the Territory in the Certosa di Calci, operated under the auspices of the University of Pisa. They are at once scientific studies, and also decorative works of art exhibiting the interplay of the natural colors, textures, and shapes of the shells in an Italianate arrangement.

        New Principles of Gunnery: containing the determination of the force of gunpowder, and ... resisting power of air to swift and slow motion

      London, 1742. First Edition. Full contemp. calf. A very good copy; frt. endpaper excised; one leaf loose; some light toning. 8vo., There is one fldg. plate and text illus. . The book that founded a new science.Contemporaries felt Robins was, '... in gunnery what immortal Newton was in philosophy ....'This obscure British mathematician and engineer invented new instruments, undertook original field trials and experiments with high velocity projectiles and made the first observations on the sound barrier. He conducted theoretical and thermodynamic analysis of interior ballistics, discovered the Magnus (Robins) effect of fluid mechanics, and established a rational explanation for the rifling phenomenon. He is also responsible for resolving the crucial and complex function of air-resistance force encountered by high speed projectiles and thereby illustrated the inadequacy of Galileo's projectile theory and the oversimplification of Newton and Huyghens' air resistance theory of projectile motion. A direct result of these experiments is that he has come to be recognized as one of the founders of modern aerodynamics. It is impossible to overstate the importance of this book to the scientific study of ballistics and the development of fluid mechanics. A landmark in the literature of mechanics.

Good bindings and covers. Moderate shelfwear. Blindstamp on title page. Boards startings. Clean, unmarked pages. Ships daily. ABPC 1976; Brunet IV.614. BMC, Vol 20, p. 239 (177). Harwood, 76. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. <br><br> Philo used philosophical allegory to attempt to fuse and harmonize Greek philosophy with Jewish philosophy. His method followed the practices of both Jewish exegesis and Stoic philosophy. His allegorical exegesis was important for several Christian Church Fathers, but he has barely any reception history within Judaism. He believed that literal interpretations of the Hebrew Bible would stifle humanity&#39;s view and perception of a God too complex and marvelous to be understood in literal human terms. Some scholars hold that his concept of the Logos as God&#39;s creative principle influenced early Christianity. Other scholars, however, deny direct influence but say both Philo and Early Christianity borrow from a common source

        Index Testarum Conchyliorum quae adservantur in Museo Nicolai Gualtieri... et methodice distributae exhibentur tabulae CX.

      Florence, C. Albizzini, 1742. Folio (464 x 325mm). pp xxiii [including frontispiece], (1); ff. 126, with engraved frontispiece, portrait, 110 numbered full-page plates, 17 vignettes on section titles, 18 other vignettes and plates in text, 2 initials, main title and section titles in red and black. Early 19th century half calf, richly gilt decorated spine in 6 compartments (short split to joint of frontcover). A fine large uncut copy of the first edition of this beautiful shell book. Niccolo Gualtieri (1688-1744) was a professor at the University of Pisa and physician to Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany. The Duke was a keen collector and had a magnificent cabinet of shells including 360 species sent to him by Rumphius, and many of the duplicates were given to Gualtieri. The present work shows Gualtieri's collection and is one of the most curious and beautiful books on shells ever published. Many of the shells are depicted standing on their apices. Both engraving and typography is exceptional. The vignettes show marine scenes and corals. The engravings are by P.A. Pazzi after drawings by Giuseppe Menabuoni (1708 - after 1745)./Gualtieri's collection is extant and can be found in the Museo Storia Naturale in Pisa. Many pages have a circular library stamp of Academie de Macon at the outer margin not affecting the illustration.//Nissen ZBI, 1736.
