COVENTRY, Francis.
London: M. Cooper, , 1751. or, The Life and Adventures of a Lap-Dog. Octavo (95 x 160 mm). Contemporary brown calf, raised bands, gilt frame to covers, title blindstamped to second spine compartment. Engraved frontispiece by Louis Botard. Ownership signature to front pastedown. Small chip to headcap, small repair to rear joint, a little stripping to covers, contents clean. A very good copy. First edition. The first edition is very scarce in commerce, particularly in a contemporary binding. Coventry studied at Magdalene College, Cambridge from 1746 onwards, where he met the poet Thomas Gray who presented him with a non-surviving comedy that would provide the basis for Pompey the Little. This satirical novel caricatures the English society of his epoch from the perspective of a lap-dog. The History of Pompey the Little was the first book in the "mock-heroic epic" genre to transcend its stylistic devices and take the form of a novel.

Beddie 1279; Chadenat 1751; Cox I, p. 386; Mendelssohn II, pp. 414-415.

In 1772 Sparrman received the opportunity to travel to the Cape Province, where he arrived in April. He made several journeys and reported on the plants, animals and inhabitants of the country. In October 1772, Captain Cook anchored in Cape of Good Hope on his second voyage to the Pacific Ocean. John Reinhold Forster and his son George accompanied Cook as botanists. They invited the Swedish naturalist to join their expedition and from November 1772 till March 1775, Sparrman circumnavigated the world, leaving the famous discoverer in Cape of Good Hope.Inspired by this journey, Sparrman set out on his own expedition through southern Africa with his friend Immelman. The largest part of his account, from volume 1 page 143 onward, is devoted to this tour which lasted from July 1775 till April 1776. He reports on plant and animal life, the local population, their customs and language. ". the narrative of their travels is interesting and instructive, and is described by Mr. Theal as the "most trustworthy account of the Cape Colony and the various races of people then residing in it" that had been published in the eighteenth century" (Menselssohn).The French translation was published in two editions, two volumes in quarto format and three volumes in octavo.

Terence
Impensis J. et P. Knapton, et G. Sandby,, Londini [London] 1751 - 2 vols., 8vo, pp. [xxvi], 208; [ii], 209-400, [6] + 6 engraved plates. Early twentieth-century vellum, boards bordered with a double gilt rule, red morocco labels to spines, marbled edges and endpapers. Occasional minor spotting. Boards slightly bowed outwards, labels a touch rubbed, some tiny spots to vellum. Between 1749 and 1763 William Sandby produced editions of several Latin authors, all elegantly printed and illustrated with engraved plates showing antiques, coins, medallions, etc. that are meant to support passages in the text. This Terence has relatively few illustrations, in this case small reproductions of select illustrations of masks from the 9th-century manuscript Codex Vaticanus Latinus 3868, which had first been printed in Fortiguerra's 1736 Italian translation of Terence. As usual with Sandby's illustrated Latin classics there are actually two editions: this larger 8vo with the text on 400 pages, and a smaller 8vo with the same text set in smaller type on 358 pages; the plates are the same in both.

COVENTRY, Francis.
London: M. Cooper, 1751 - Octavo (95 x 160 mm). Contemporary brown calf, raised bands, gilt frame to covers, title blindstamped to second spine compartment. Ownership signature to front pastedown. Small chip to headcap, small repair to rear joint, a little stripping to covers, contents clean. A very good copy. Engraved frontispiece by Louis Botard. First edition. The first edition is very scarce in commerce, particularly in a contemporary binding. Coventry studied at Magdalene College, Cambridge from 1746 onwards, where he met the poet Thomas Gray who presented him with a non-surviving comedy that would provide the basis for Pompey the Little. This satirical novel caricatures the English society of his epoch from the perspective of a lap-dog. The History of Pompey the Little was the first book in the "mock-heroic epic" genre to transcend its stylistic devices and take the form of a novel. [Attributes: First Edition]
