Thomas Tanner
London: Second Edition. With portrait frontispiece and three further plates featuring coats of arms. With an index of the religious houses to the rear. 'Printed by William Bowyer at the expense of the Society for the Encouragement of Learning'. Thomas Tanner, (1674-1735), bishop of St Asaph and antiquary. Tanner's chief work published during his lifetime is the Notitia Monastica, a short account of all the religious houses in England and Wales. This was published at Oxford in 1695; it was reprinted with additions by the author's brother, John Tanner, in 1744; and was reprinted again with further additions by James Nasmith in 1787. He also wrote Bibliotheca Britannico-Hibernica, a dictionary of all the authors who flourished in England, Scotland and Ireland before the opening of the 17th century, at which he laboured for forty years. This was eventually completed by David Wilkins and published in 1748, thirteen years after the author's death. Tanner also collected materials for a history of Wiltshire and worked for some time on a new edition of the works of John Leland. The "Society for the Encouragement of Learning" was a group that tried to help authors become independent from publishers. CONDITION Rebacked in calf with original boards. Externally very sound, rubbing to the original leather. Internally, firmly bound. Generally lovely and bright and clean with just a few scattered spots. Off-setting to the title from the frontis.

Thomas Tanner
London: Second Edition. With portrait frontispiece and three further plates featuring coats of arms. With an index of the religious houses to the rear. 'Printed by William Bowyer at the expense of the Society for the Encouragement of Learning'. Thomas Tanner, (1674-1735), bishop of St Asaph and antiquary. Tanner's chief work published during his lifetime is the Notitia Monastica, a short account of all the religious houses in England and Wales. This was published at Oxford in 1695; it was reprinted with additions by the author's brother, John Tanner, in 1744; and was reprinted again with further additions by James Nasmith in 1787. He also wrote Bibliotheca Britannico-Hibernica, a dictionary of all the authors who flourished in England, Scotland and Ireland before the opening of the 17th century, at which he laboured for forty years. This was eventually completed by David Wilkins and published in 1748, thirteen years after the author's death. Tanner also collected materials for a history of Wiltshire and worked for some time on a new edition of the works of John Leland. The "Society for the Encouragement of Learning" was a group that tried to help authors become independent from publishers. CONDITION Rebacked in calf with original boards. Externally very sound, rubbing to the original leather. Internally, firmly bound. Generally lovely and bright and clean with just a few scattered spots. Off-setting to the title from the frontis.

MONTESQUIEU, Baron de, Charles de Secondat.
Chez Pierre Marteau, Cologne. TP + 1-172 + [1]-196 + TP [Lettres Turques] + [3]-71; 12mo. Later Edition.This edition put out by Marteau, Montesquieu's original publisher, adds the Letter from a Turk in Paris which was not written by Montesquieu. The original publication in The Persian Letters in 1721, sparked a number of imitative works - all based on the "letter-writing" format. One of these, Letters from a Turk, was published by Poullain de Saint-Foix in 1730. When Marteau reissued The Persian Letters in 1731, he appended this work at the end. Montesquieu was not pleased, commenting that "a sequel is inadmissible, and that any admixture with the letters of others, however ingenious such letters may be, is still more so." This edition is from 1744, thirteen years after the first "complete" edition was published. In the history of letters and fiction, it is interesting to note that Montesquieu was well aware of the literary genre - the epistolary novel - that he had launched. He noted in his Mes Pensées: "My Lettres persanes taught people to write letter-novels."Montesquieu's first publication was a revolutionary book that had a profound and wide impact. "France was publicly shocked and privately delighted. Four editions appeared in 1721, and then none for nine years; it is not unreasonalbe to suppose that it was officially suppressed." (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 117, PMM 197 - De l'Esprit des Loix) But the damage had been done. French society, the Catholic Church and, perhaps most importantly, the French monarchy had been held up to scathing public ridicule in a boo … [Click Below for Full Description]

(cgc) Peel (3), 18. Describes an attack on the HBC which led to the investigation of the monopoly by a Parliamentary committee in 1749. (Peel). Dobbs, who later became governor of North Carolina, was a strong advocate of the search for a North West Passage and opposed the monopoly of the Hudson's Bay Company, alleging that their rapacity in dealing with the Indians had thrown the fur trade into the hands of the French in Canada. He gives an account of the fur trade and accounts of early exploration of the area and the opportunities for further discoveries. He states that his sources were from published accounts by the French and communications received from persons who had resided there and who had been employed in the fur trade. He quotes particularly from Joseph de la France, a French-Canadian half-breed who came over to England in 1742. Dobbs also attacks Captain Middleton over the leadership of the 1741-1742 expedition search for a Passage; initiating a public attack and counter-attack that lasted more than three years and raised awareness and interest in the North West Passage. In 1745, parliament announced a bounty of twenty thousand pounds sterling to the discoverer of the pas … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frontis. An extensive auction catalog from one of the leading Parisian art dealers of the period, this copy priced fairly extensively in an early hand. Besides the paintings, prints, and drawings, this sale includes a section of seashells. (Gersaint had evidently helped Lorangere form that collection.) ìGersaint was also the first dealer in France to realize the potential of public auctions . . . which he organized as a kind of public spectacle and which he recommended to curieux as events both instructive and amusing. These sales were accompanied by sales catalogs, which were his most important and lasting contribution to the art of dealing. . . . More than one of his catalogs employed a frontispiece by Charles-Nicolas Cochin [as here], that, like Watteauís shopsign, discloses the intimate sphere of privileged amateursî (McClellan, 1995). McClellan argues that besides the scholarly value of his catalogs, the catalogs themselves helped burnish Gersaintís image as a disinterested, reputable dealer whose attributions were based on scholarship rather than profit. It is in this catalog, with Gersaintís biography of Watteau, that Gersaint makes his explanation of Watteauís LíEnseigne de Gersaintóthe putative advertisement for Gersaintís galle … [Click Below for Full Description]

Poetry played a prominent role in genteel culture in eighteenth-century Britain. In addition to well- selling collections by poets like John Dryden, Alexander Pope, and Edward Young, there were regular sections of poetry in most of the leading periodicals. The genre was embraced for political critique, moral instruction, philosophical argument, religious devotion, light diversion, and a range of other public purposes. John Wesley was typical of many in his day in keeping a manuscript notebook during his Oxford years where he copied poems that he found instructive or worthy of reading repeatedly. While Wesley's manuscript collection includes several selections that he would have viewed as entertaining, it is clear that he particularly valued poems with strong moral and religious themes. Thus, he was sympathetic to a suggestion made by Selina Hastings, Countess of Huntingdon, in 1742 that public culture would greatly benefit from a collec … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomas Tanner
London: Second Edition. With portrait frontispiece and three further plates featuring coats of arms. With an index of the religious houses to the rear. 'Printed by William Bowyer at the expense of the Society for the Encouragement of Learning'. Thomas Tanner, (1674-1735), bishop of St Asaph and antiquary. Tanner's chief work published during his lifetime is the Notitia Monastica, a short account of all the religious houses in England and Wales. This was published at Oxford in 1695; it was reprinted with additions by the author's brother, John Tanner, in 1744; and was reprinted again with further additions by James Nasmith in 1787. He also wrote Bibliotheca Britannico-Hibernica, a dictionary of all the authors who flourished in England, Scotland and Ireland before the opening of the 17th century, at which he laboured for forty years. This was eventually completed by David Wilkins and published in 1748, thirteen years after the author's death. Tanner also collected materials for a history of Wiltshire and worked for some time on a new edition of the works of John Leland. The "Society for the Encouragement of Learning" was a group that tried to help authors become independent from publishers. Rebacked in calf with original boards. Externally very sound, rubbing to the original leather. Internally, firmly bound. Generally lovely and bright and clean with just a few scattered spots. Off-setting to the title from the frontis. Overall Condition: Very Good.
