After its rediscovery during the medieval era it became a staple of European legal education. Not in the British Museum Catalogue. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Collection of 10 pamphlets relating to the controversy concerning the battle of Toulon.]

      London: various publishers, 1744-5 - 10 octavo pamphlets, all uncut, most unopened, sewn in original wraps as issued. Housed in a black cloth solander box. Wraps a little tattered in some case, one upper wrap detached, and two lacking, but overall very good indeed. 4 folding maps and a folding table to the first item. First editions. An interesting selection of publications offering insight into this perfect exemplar of the eighteenth-century naval controversy, questions of ship-handling, the interpretation of signals, and personality clashes, all overlaid by matters of patronage. "Lestock's name will always be connected with the battle of Toulon (11 February 1744). By adhering to a restrictive interpretation of the fighting instructions and declining to take any initiatives he contributed to a monumental naval failure" (ODNB). Lestock and his direct superior Admiral Thomas Mathews had had previous contretemps, and in the aftermath of the battle, a virulent pamphlet war flared with Lestock throwing "blame on various captains not in his division and especially on Mathews, whom he charged publicly." Public opinion was against Lestock, but Admiral Byng's "interest" ensured that a parliamentary enquiry, and subsequent court martial were managed in Lestock's favour, "There is every sign that the exoneration of Lestock was arranged. The court, in fact, carried it to an extreme, for in every way conceivable the members found no possible fault in Lestock's conduct. Subsequently, the same court cashiered Mathews The public was not convinced. As a naval historian writing in 1758 observed, the 'nation could not be persuaded that the vice-admiral ought to be exculpated for not fighting' and the admiral cashiered for fighting (Barrow, The Naval History of Great Britain)." The ten pamphlets are as follow; [Mathews], A Narrative of the Proceedings of His Majesty's Fleet in the Mediterranean (1744); Original Letters and Papers between Adm--------l M---------ws, and V. Adm-------l L---------k (1744); Admiral Matthews's Account of the Action in the Mediterranean (1745); Vice-Admal Lestock's Recapitulation (1745); Admiral Mathews's Charge against Vice-Admiral Lestock Dissected and Confuted (1745); Ad------l M------ws's Conduct In the Late Engagement Vindicated (1745); An Impartial Review of the Conduct of the Admirals M---ws and L----k (1745); Minutes taken at a Court-Martial assembled On Board His Majesty's Ship Torbay (1745); Appendix to the minutes taken at a Court-Martial (1745); Captain Opie's Appeal against the Illegal Proceedings of Vice-Admiral Mathews (1745) [Attributes: First Edition]

Pages de titres en rouge et noir. Première édition, semble-t-il, a être totalement illustrée, de précédentes éditions ne présentaient que quatre frontispices, cependant il est à noter que les figures portent la date de 1742. La mention de troisième édition ne renvoie qu'aux éditions hollandaises et n'est donc pas significative. Traduction de l'abbé Prévost et de Aubert de la Chesnaye des Bois. Pleine Basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de tête du tome I arrachée. Un manque en tête du tome II. Un manque au mors supérieur en queue du tome I. Coiffe de queue en partie manquante au tome III. Coins émoussés. Frottements. Rousseurs péarses. Pamela fut un véritable coup de théâtre dans le monde des lettres et eut un succès retentissant dans toute l'Europe. Son principal mérite est sans doute d'avoir donné naissance non seulement au roman epistolaire (Rousseau) mais à Fielding qui donna deux suites satiriques : Les aventures de joseph Andrews et Tom Jones. On sait que Diderot ne tarissait pas d'éloges à propos de ce roman. Pamela est un roman de moeurs et un roman sentimental dont l'empreinte sur la littérature du XVIIIe est indélébile et durable. On le considère souvent comme le premier roman de moeurs bourgeoises, et ce déplacement des lieux de l'action de l'aristocratie vers la bourgoisie eut un énorme impact.

        Exemplification of the Common Recovery, with Double Voucher, (1683-1760, King of Great Britain)

      1744 - by Richard Weale and Thomas Wroughton from Jonathan Evendon, Gent., of "3 messuages, 7 gardens, 70 acres of land, fifty acres of meadow, 50 acres of pasture and 10 acres of wood" in Bromley Chart next Sutton Valence, Boughton Monchelsea, Langley and Erith, Kent, heard before Sir John WILLES, 1685-1761, from 1737 Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, and implemented by Thomas Hodsdon Esq., Sheriff of Kent, Evendon vouches [calls upon] to warrant him in possession the original owners in tail Charles and his wife Sarah Raymond, John and Thomas Webster, who are thereupon sued by Weale and Wroughton, so the original owners in tail call upon Samuel Ward as common vouchee, fine large portrait of George II in elaborate initial 'G', 8¾" x 7½", the heading continues along the top with a wide border of female figures including Britannia, and the Royal Arms, all engraved, vellum tab, Seal of the Court of Common Pleas in green-brown wax, 4½ inch diameter, the obverse bears George II enthroned, with figures emblematic of power and justice, the reverse bears the Royal Arms supported by a dragon and greyhound, below are the remains of the legend 'PRO BREVIBUS CORAM IUSTICIARIIS', the document vellum 28¼" x 33", Westminster, 7th May, 17th year of George II, seal defective at top near tab and on sinister side of the king's figure, lacking about one third in all, worn and legends faint, rust offset of former metal seal case affects several words near end (all can be supplied) and has caused three small holes in the decorative heading A 'common recovery' converted an 'estate in tail', burdened by conditions as to who might inherit, into an 'estate in fee simple', with absolute power to dispose of it. A friend of the owner claimed in court that the estate was all along in fee simple, and that he had been disseised of it by a fictitious Hugh Hunt within the past thirty years (in Ireland, Hugh Blake and twenty years). A 'common vouchee', usually the court crier, next claimed, untruthfully, that he had sold the lands to the present owner. Judgment was given for the friend, and against the common vouchee, who was supposed to give the present owner lands of equal value. As he was a 'man of straw', he never did. In this way the estate was conveyed to the friend, to be returned or disposed of by private arrangement. In later recoveries 'with double voucher', as here, the present owner in tail previously conveyed the estate to a further friend. The further friend called upon the owner in tail to warrant his possession, and the owner in tail called on the common vouchee. Common recoveries, designed to bind all parties and cover all loop-holes, were abolished in 1833, and replaced by a simple form of deed made by the owner.

VERY RARE. Piatti foderati con carta coeva (qualche leggera strofinatura). Tagli spruzzati in rosso. All'interno in ottime condizioni di conservazione e con ampi margini. Prima edizione veneziana stampata da Giuseppe Corona curata dal noto benedettino giansenista originario di Saint-Clais (Maine), Gerberon Gabriel pubblicate per la prima volta a Parigi nel 1675. Frontespizio del primo volume in rosso e nero, numerosissimi testatine, finalini e iniziali xilografici. Testo in colonne doppie. Celebre e monumentale raccolta del pensiero del celebre padre della Chiesa Cattolica S. Anselmo di Canterbury (1033-1109) nato a Aosta, in Piemonte. Dopo aver studiato in Borgogna e in Francia, entrò nell'ordine benedettino. Divenne arcivescovo di Canterbury nel 1093 carica che ricoprì fino alla morte. Teologo e filosofo molto ammirato è considerato fra i padri della scolastica ed è conosciuto per la sua tesi ontologica dell'esistenza di Dio, dimostrata nel suo Proslogion (1077-1078). Si schierò fortemente contro l'anti-intellettualismo, insistendo sul fatto che l'analisi razionale della fede cristiana non conduce necessariamente allo scetticismo. Al contrario, credeva che lo studio intelligente avrebbe portato ad una migliore comprensione della fede rendendola più forte. Fu canonizzato nel 1494 e nominato Dottore della Chiesa nel 1726. Doctor magnificus, come viene anche chiamato, scrisse numerose opere. L'opera più famosa del periodo inglese (terminata, però in esilio in Italia, sull'eremo benedettino di Villa degli Schiavi, l'antica Villa Sclavia, oggi Liberi in Provincia di Caserta) fu il Cur Deus homo (Perché un Dio-uomo?). Anselmo ci ha lasciato anche un'ampia raccolta di Preghiere e di Meditazioni, nonché un nutrito Epistolario, qui presentato, nel quale sono raccolte anche numerose lettere dirette ai suoi discepoli per i quali il Santo fu sempre una figura di riferimento estremamente attenta e gentile. Questa edizione veneziana estremamente curata contiene anche la Vita di Sant'Anselmo. Questa edizione è considerata fra le più corrette e complete mai stampate delle opere del celebre Santo. Ottimo esemplare. Very Good. VERY RARE.

      Cambridge - J. Bentham 1744 - Two leatherbound volumes with gilt titles to the spine, and 16plates illustrated by William Hogarth: 9 in Volume I and 7 in Volume II. Samuel Butler (8 February 1612 25 September 1680) was a poet and satirist. Born in Strensham, Worcestershire and baptised 14 February 1613,he is remembered now chiefly for a long satirical burlesque poem on Puritanism entitled Hudibras. The work is a satirical polemic upon Roundheads, Puritans, Presbyterians and many of the other factions involved in the English Civil War. The work was written in three parts in 1663, 1664 and 1678 although an unauthorised edition came out in 1662. Published only four years after Charles II had been restored to the throne and the Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell being completely over the poem found an appreciative audience. The satire is not balanced as Butler was fiercely royalist and only the parliamentarian side are singled out for ridicule. Butler also uses the work to parody some of the dreadful poetry of the time. The epic tells the story of Sir Hudibras, a knight errant who is described dramatically and with laudatory praise that is so thickly applied as to be absurd, and the conceited and arrogant person is visible beneath. He is praised for his knowledge of logic despite appearing stupid throughout, but it is his religious fervour which is mainly attacked. His squire, Ralpho, is of a similar stamp but makes no claim to great learning, knowing all there is to know from his religion or new-light, as he calls it. Butler satirises the competing factions at the time of the protectorship by the constant bickering of these two principal characters whose religious opinions should unite them. These are fawning but barbed portraits and are thought to represent personalities of the times but the actual analogues are, now as then, debatable. A Key to Hudibras printed with one of the work's editions (1709) and ascribed to Roger L'Estrange names Sir Samuel Luke as the model for Hudibras. Certainly, the mention of Mamaluke in the poem makes this possible although Butler suggests Hudibras is from the West Country making Henry Rosewell a candidate. The witchfinder, Matthew Hopkins, John Desborough, parliamentarian general, and William Prynne, lawyer, all make appearances, and the character of Sidrophel is variously seen as either William Lilly or Paul Neale. The mock heroic epic and its jaunty verse form known as Hudibrastic became the standard of satire for some time after that with at least twenty-seven direct imitations being produced. Fifty years after the last part was written a new edition was published, with illustrations by William Hogarth, one of the foremost artists of the day. The work remained popular for several centuries as a warning against the zealotry during the Civil War period of English history. Condition: The volumes have been rebacked. The bindings are tight and firm with all covers and pages securely attached. There is some mild wear to the extremities including rubbing to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and isolated spot. There are bookplates to the front pastedowns. Overall the volumes are in very good condition.

      Ambrosius Haude, Berlin 1744 - In this work Euler gives "the solutions of the main problems of theoretical astronomy dealing with the structure, nature, motion and action of comets and planets. With regard to the theory of perturbed motion of celestial bodies, Euler formulated the perturbation theory in general terms so that it can be used to solve the mathematical problem of dynamic models and particular problems of theoretical astronomy . He gave an extensive mathematical treatment of the problem of improving approximations of orbits within the framework of the two-body problem and taking perturbations into account. In his Theoria motuum planetarum et cometarum published in 1744, Euler gave a complete mathematical treatment of the two-body problem consisting of a planet and the Sun."

En 1728, Maupertuis revint de Londres convaincu de la valeur de la théorie de Newton, dont l'une des conséquences serait un aplatissement de la terre aux pôles, ce qui était contraire aux savants calculs fait par Cassini et son équipe qui prévoyaient au contraire un allongement. Pour trancher la question l'Académie des Sciences décida l'envoi de deux expéditions, l'une à l'équateur (c'était l'expédition de La Condamine, Louis Godin et Pierre Bouguer), et l'autre en Laponie. Cette expédition, à laquelle prit part le savant astronome Celsius, fut placée sous la direction de Pierre-Louis de Maupertuis; elle comptait trois autres membre de l'Académie des Sciences (Clairaut, Camus, et Le Monnier), ainsi que l'abbé Outhier correspondant de l'académie, qui publia ici le journal de l'expédition. Les deux expéditions prouveront l'exactitude des prévision de Newton. ("In 1736-1737 the Academy sponsored an expedition to Lapland to measure the length of a degree of latitude near the North Pole, in order to determinate the actual figure of the earth; and Outhier, "dont la capacité dans l'ouvrage que nous allions faire, etoit connuë."(Maupertuis, LA FIGURE DE LA TERRE, p. xv), was invited to participate.

Contemporary speckled calf, raised bands, spines gilt, leather labels. Slight wear at joints and spine ends. Early armorial bookplate in each volume. Contemporary manuscript notations to flyleaf of first volume. A most attractive set. Very good. First duodecimo edition, printed the same year as the three-volume quarto edition of this classic work of Canadian history, including important material on French settlement in the Mississippi Valley. The journal consists of thirty-six letters, six of which relate to the southern colonies. "The principal work of this great Jesuit traveller and historian and the pre-eminent authority on the French period in the West" - Howes. "This work is one of the best authorities concerning various Indian tribes, some of which no longer exist. The laborious accuracy with which the work was executed can be estimated by the fact that the maps, dated 1743, are marked with the latest discoveries, in 1742, in the extreme north of America" - Lande. Most of the maps in this work were drawn by French cartographer Nicholas Bellin, including his important rendering of North America, a frequent source for later mapmakers, as well as some of the most definitive and up- to-date maps available of Canada. Besides its great importance as a historical and cartographical work, Charlevoix's narrative is also of considerable interest for the section entitled "Description des Plantes Principales de l'Amerique Septentrionale," which in the duodecimo edition occupies much of the fourth volume. Here the author describes ninety-six plants, mainly ones native to Canada, but including herbs of the Mississippi Valley as well. Most of the plants described are of medicinal value. The text is accompanied by forty-four folding plates illustrating all ninety-six species discussed. LANDE 125. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 120. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 756. TPL 188. HOWES C307, "b."

Tagli a spruzzo azzurri. Fregi tipogr. ai frontespizi. Fregi tipogr. n.t. Amplissimo indice degli autori e delle materie in fine dell'ultimo volume. Edizione torinese del monumentale commento di gerard Van Swieten agli aforismi medici di Hermann Boerhaave ("Aphorismi de cognoscendis et de curandis morbis", Leyden, 1709), uscito a Leida tra il 1745 e il 1772 e tradotto nelle principali lingue europee. Esso costituisce il più significativo documento del nuovo ippocratismo che ebbe il suo centro principale a Vienna. Boerhave (Voorhout, 1668-Leida, 1782), medico e scienziato tra i principali del suo tempo, cercò di conciliare l'ippocratismo con i principi della iatrochimica e della iatromeccanica. Nella sua vastissima opera si occupò anche di chimica e di botanica. Gerard Van Swieten (Leida, 1700-Vienna, 1782), insigne medico olandese, fu tra i fondatori della Scuola di Medicina di Vienna. Allievo del Boerhaave in gioventù, fu tra l'altro medico di corte di Maria Teresa. Il suo nome resta legato anche al cosiddetto "liquore di Van Swieden", che egli prescrisse per la cura della sifilide. Eccellenti esemplari con qualche alone e brunitura. Cfr.

Prima edizione italiana di opera significativa e assai osteggiata sulle missioni e i viaggi in oriente. L' autore, norberto P. Parisot (1697-1769) cappuccino lorenese, famoso per le sue controversie contro i Gesuiti, fu inviato in America, ma al ritorno il Papa gli vietò di stampare i suoi scritti contro i missionari; fu costretto a scappare in Olanda, Inghilterra e Germania. Scrisse varie opere ma questa è la più importante tanto che nel 1750 a Londra ne fu stampato un altro volume. Sembra che anche questi tre tomi, non sono stati stampati a Lucca, ma all' estero, forse ad Avignone(?). Questo è quanto si evince dal: " Dizionario Biografico Universale " Firenze 1840-49 vol. IV p.231: " Avignone, sotto la rubrica di Lucca 1744". Molto raro, manca a varia bibliografia consultata compreso Cox " Reference Guide to the Literature of Travel".

Newton's "Opuscula Mathematica [.]" covers many different treatises by Isaac Newton, from his mathematical works and optical lectures, which were greatly influential and laid the basis for modern science, to his philological essays on history and theology. Thus the work presents several of his most influential texts. The three volumes of "Opuscula Mathematica" are part of a hybrid set of in all 8 volumes of the first collected works of Isaac Newton. The hybrid set was published between 1739-1761 and also consists of "Geneva Principia" , 3 vols. (1739-42), "Opticks" (1740) and "Arithmatica Universalis" (1761), but the three volumes of "Opuscula Mathematica" are usually found separate. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First Edition. The product of twenty years research and reflection, based on personal observation and material gathered from the archives of the Jesuit order and the Department of Marine, Charlevoix's famous work is the first general history of the French discoveries and settlements in North America, covering the period 1500 to 1736. Charlevoix, who was a Jesuit missionary to New France from 1705 to 1709, was charged in 1720-22, by the regent Philippe, Duc d'Orléans, to investigate the rumours about the existence of a western sea between the New World and the Orient. Volumes V-VI of his history provides a detailed and precise account of his observations made during the course of that journey, by canoe, up the St. Lawrence, through the Great Lakes and down the Mississippi to New Orleans, with stops at missions and fur-trading posts along the way. The work contains much important information about the Indian tribes and settlements, particularly in the Mississippi Country, and includes "one of the most valuable, if not the most valuable, early accounts of Louisiana." (Clark) Charlevoix's history is also highly valued for a number of other reasons. It contains the first annotated bibliography of New France (Vol. I pp. xli-[lxii]) (see Harrisse 'Bibliotheca Americana', pp. xvii-xviii), a remarkable illustrated descriptive catalogue of the principal plants of North America (Vol. II, pp. 56), an annotated calendar of major voyages and discoveries (Vol. I, pp. v-xl), and 28 engraved maps and plans of Acadia, Louisbourg, Port Royale, Port Dauphin, Quebec, the St. Lawrence, the River Saguenay, Montreal, Newfoundland, Hudson's Bay, James Bay, the Great Lakes, Louisiana, the mouth of the Mississippi, &c., prepared especially for the work by distinguished French cartographer, Jacques Nicholas Bellin (see Karpinski pp. 137-38). There is also a short essay by Bellin prefixed to Volume III (pp. xix), discussing the accuracy of his maps and the errors and misrepresentations of earlier cartographers. Dionne II 439.

        Sefer Arba'ah Ve' Esrim

      Refa'el Hayim Me-Italya Ha-Rofe, Mantua 1744 - Complete 2 volume set. 4to. First volume (4), 142 leaves, 88 leaves. Second volume 98 leaves, (1) leaf, 51 leaves, (6) leaves. Half brown leather over paper boards with raised bands. Blue and red speckled edges. Pair of illustrated and full title pages. The illustrated title page contains the heading: "open the gates so that the righteous converts, the protectors of the faith, shall come." The illustrations are of biblical scenes, Moses and the tablets, David and his harp, Miriam leading the women at the Red Sea, Queen Esther and King Ahasuerus, Ezekiel bringing the dried bones to life, Solomon with the disputed baby and Joshua stopping the sun. This illustrated title-page appears before the Pentateuch, Early Prophets, Later Prophets and Hagiography sections. The full title-page has red and black letters. There are decorated initials and tail pieces at the beginnings and endings of sections. The book contains the Old Testament text in Hebrew accompanied by the Hebrew commentary Minhat Shai (Goder Perez) by the 17th century scholar Rabbi Jedidiah Norzi and edited by Rabbi Raphael Hayyim Basila. Prefaces by Basila and the printer Doctor Raphael Hayyim di Italia. Letter of approbation by the Mantua rabbis R. Menahem Samson b. Solomon Basila and R. Jacob Mendola. There is a short poem at the end by printer, comparing the 24 books of the Old Testament to bread and wine. There is also a pair of short discourses on Hebrew grammar by Norzi. This work is the product of early modern rabbinic efforts to reach out to Mantua's converso immigrant population. This can be seen in the heading praising "converts." One assumes this refers to those conversos, who were reared as Catholics, but came to Judaism as adults. The poem's references to bread and wine can be read as a polemic against the Eucharist, which the converso reader was giving up for the "true source of life," the Old Testament. Text is in Hebrew. Cover shows wear, particularly at the corners and edges. Corners of front free endpaper torn. Rippling and water staining to endpapers. Second volume spine cover is split, but still intact. Overall in good condition. Darlow and Moule #5150. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Traduit du latin par Monsieur Barbeyrac, avec des notes du traducteur qui y a joint celles de la Traduction Angloise.

      1744 - A Amsterdam, Chez Pierre Mortier, & A Paris, Chez Huart, 1744. In-quarto (200 X 255) veau fauve, dos cinq nerfs, caissons dorés, encadrement à froid sur les plats, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque) ; 1 feuillet blanc, faux-titre, frontispice, titre, XXVIII pages (préface du traducteur et vie de l'auteur), 1 feuillet non chiffré (table), 425 pages, 9 pages non chiffrées (errata & table des matières), un feuillet blanc. EDITION ORIGINALE française. Elle contient un BEAU FRONTISPICE signé "L.F.D.B." [Louis-Fabrice Du bourg] et gravé par Tanjé. Religieux et philosophe anglais (1631-1718), Richard Cumberland fut évêque de Peterborough. C'est pour s'élever contre la pensée de Hobbes qu'il entreprit de rédiger son ouvrage majeur, connu sous le nom "De legibus naturae disquisitio philosophica" (1672), ou "Traité philosophique des lois naturelles". Pour lui, il est erroné de dire que tout ce que prescrit un législateur doit être regardé comme autant de maximes de la droite raison, qui imposent une obéissance absolue aux administrés. Il observe notamment que, s'il est possible de dégager des lois naturelles, c'est parce que la « nature humaine » se retrouve toujours et partout la même, et que, dès lors, à partir du moment où une loi a été reconnue comme bonne, tant par les lumières de notre esprit que par les législateurs les plus scrupuleux, on peut présumer qu'elle revêt un caractère général. Autant dire que, à côté de Pufendorf, Cumberland se range parmi les défenseurs de la liberté et les adversaires des régimes autoritaires. Le "Traité philosophique" sera une des lectures de Rousseau pour le grand ouvrage qu'il projetait, "Institutions politiques", et la lecture de Cumberland influença profondément la philosophie morale et politique de John Locke. BEL EXEMPLAIRE, d'une remarquable fraîcheur. (Cohen, Guide de l'amateur de livres à gravures du XVIIIe siècle, 135-136). FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

First Swedish translation, made by Olof Bidenius Renhorn, who has dedicated the first part to the diplomat, politician and patron of the arts Carl Gustaf Tessin, one of the grand figures of 18th-century Swedish cultural life. Renhorn has also added a foreword in each part and a number of footnotes. The translation is made from a French edition, printed in Paris in 1727, which is praised by Renhorn since the French translator has "excluded all indecent och unuseful words, and instead added useful things, so that the book has become shorter and more pleasant".
