        The Defense of Poesy

      Glasgow: R. Urie, 1752. Handsome early edition of Sir Philip Sidney's Renaissance defense of poetry, in which he argues that the poet has a potentially greater impact on the world than the philosopher or historian: "no other human skill can match him." While philosophers offer abstract precepts that only educated readers can grasp, and historians offer colorful but often uninstructive real-life examples, the great poets combine the power of precept and example to maximum effect, inspiring all those who listen. "Anger, the Stoics said, was a short madness; let but Sophocles bring you Ajax on a stage, killing or whipping sheep and oxen, thinking them the army of Greeks, with their chieftains Agamemnon and Menelaus; and tell me, if you have not a more familiar insight into anger, than finding in the schoolmen his genus and difference?" This 1752 printing is the second separate printing of The Defense of Poesy, preceded by the first edition of 1595; the essay also appeared in collected editions of Sidney's work throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. A near-fine example of an English Renaissance classic. Twelvemo, full eighteenth-century calf, spine ruled in gilt, pp. [1-2] 3-106. Ink ownership signature dated 1838 to front free endpaper. Two tiny wormholes; text block resewn at an early date; light occasional foxing; expert repair to binding joints and corners.

        Second partie de la Carte d'Asie contenant La Chine et Partie de la Tartarie, L'Inde au de la du Gange, les Isles Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Moluques, Philippines, et du Japon.

      Paris: Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville, 1752. unbound. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Together measure 39" x 28". This fine antique map dates to 1752 and depicts Southeast Asia, China, Korea, Japan and the East Indies. The map is in two panels and incredibly detailed with numerous place names labeled, especially in the northern sheet covering China, Korea and Japan. As we move to the southern sheet and the East Indies, these lesser known kingdoms at the time are not densely mapped. Some of the interesting cartographic features include the mapping of the Hokkaido or Jeso, which is all but attached to the mainland and is mis-shaped. Okinawa Island appears to be as large as Taiwan or Formosa. The supposed "ancient seat of the Monguls Empire" is identified. Straits of Singapore are labeled. Singapore Island, although not identified, is noted. New Guinea is mapped in its embryonic state. Overall the map is a wonderful overview of the mapping of this region in the mid-18th century. In good condition with minor wear along the centerfolds. Minor foxing at places and some offsetting. Lower sheet has a repair near the top right margin and a stain in Sumatra. <br><br>Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d' Anville (1697-1782) was a French geographer and cartographer whose accurate, research-based work raised the standards for 18th-century map-making. Passionate about maps from his childhood, he created maps during his school years and would go on to publish several atlases during his prolific career. In his early 20's he became the Geographer to the King of France. His accuracy and in depth research would make him one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century.

        Suite du livre intitule nouvelles fontaines filtrantes (1754) - Nouvelles fontaines filtrantes (1752) - Extrait du livre intitulé nouvelle fontaines domestiques (1752)

      1752 - 3 ouvrages en 1 fort volume Paris, Antoine Bourdet, et Jean-Baptiste Coignard et Antoine Bourdet, 1752-1754, in-12, 3 ouvrages en 1 fort volume in-12, frontispice rehaussé à l'aquarelle, LXXXII-332-[4] pages et 9 planches rehaussées en couleurs, dont 8 repliées ; VIII-71-46 pages et 7 planches, dont 6 repliées ; [2]-95 pages (manque les 28 feuillets liminaires), veau raciné de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné et portant une pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, filet à froid d'encadrement sur les plats, tranches et gardes marbrées, Rare ensemble d'ouvrages de physique expérimentale et d'hydraulique appliquée à la santé et à l'hygiène publique. Les trois textes sont en édition originale ; les deux premiers comprennent une superbe illustration sur bois et sur suivre, en partie rehaussée à l'époque. La Suite du livre intitule nouvelles fontaines filtrantes est reliée en tête du volume, avec le frontispice emblématique gravé sur bois (la santé publique, sous les traits d'Hercule, animée par les rayons de la royauté française, combat l'insalubrité et les maladies personnifiées par l'hydre de Lerne). L'ensemble des illustrations de cette partie, le frontispice compris, a été colorié à l'époque. Le troisième livre est incomplet des pages I à XIII de la préface et des 8 feuillets liminaires suivants, qui doivent comprendre les avis de Réaumur, Falconet et de l'Académie des sciences, ainsi que la table. On ignore presque tout de la vie de Joseph Amy, avocat au parlement d'Aix-en-Provence. Seuls les livres qu'il publia entre 1747 et 1759, sur la purification de l'eau utilisée en milieu domestique et les eaux et fontaines de la ville de Paris nous renseignent sur sa personne, sa vie et les relations qu'il entretint avec ses contemporains. Les ouvrages de ce curieux inventeur, avant tout soucieux du bien être de la population, de ce qu'il nomme lui-même, la "Santé Publique" (voir la planche XVI de la "Suite"), s'apparentent à de doux pamphlets promouvant, et faisant la publicité, des fontaines filtrantes mises au point par ses soins et défendant activement l'utilisation du plomb bien affiné contre celle de l'étain et du cuivre. Fort de la reconnaissance et de l'appui qui lui accordèrent, en 1748, l'Académie des Sciences, Réaumur et Falconet (voir les pages LXVIII à LXXIX de l'avertissement de la "Suite" où il renvoie à ces importants éloges), Amy détaille longuement chacune des machines qu'il inventa, celles-ci profitant toujours d'illustrations gravées sur cuivre, et condamne explicitement par des illustrations allégoriques l'emploi du cuivre (planches 14, 15 et 16 de la "Suite"), ainsi que l'ignorance et les mauvaises habitudes (voir son étonnant et très schématique "Plan de Paris", à la page 13 de la seconde partie des "Nouvelles fontaines" de 1752, où il divise la population de Paris en fonction de son niveau de connaissance des nouvelles fontaines proposées à la vente). Ces 3 ouvrages valent bien sur par leurs innovations, mais aussi par leur rhétorique simple et efficace : à une idée à défendre correspond une illustration. Ainsi, au total on compte pas moins de 16 figures représentant des schémas de fontaine ou de machine hydraulique : fontaine publique pour les villes et garnisons, parallèle des nouvelles fontaines avec les anciennes, différents états des fontaines de cuivre à Paris, machine à élever les eaux, fontaine filtrante pour bateau, petite fontaine pour raffiner l'eau déjà filtrée dans le fond de la cale d'un bateau, fontaine de cave de carrosse, ou de chaise de poste, "filtroir" militaire, marin ou domestique, "filtroir" d'abondance, "filtroir" par descension et ascension dans le sable, fontaine de fer blanc étamé ou plombé, nouvelle espèce de pierre poreuse, fontaine de poche, fontaine de cuisine, et enfin 3 types de fontaines de raffinage. Le troisième livre forme un "Extrait", ou plus exactement, l'abrégé d'un livre parut pour la première fois en 1750, les "Nouvelles fontaines domestiques".

      Mexico: Impr. de Doña Maria de Rivera Small 8vo (14.8 cm; 5.875"). [15] ff., 324 pp.. 1752 Mining was one of the chief industries of colonial Mexico, and after a century of decline during the 1600s, the 18th century saw a renaissance in ore extraction, chiefly due to new technologies that made it possible to rework old ore and to achieve higher than previously imagined levels of silver and gold extracted from newly mined ore. Berdugo's work, a vade mecum of conversion tables of values for gold of different carats and for silver of different values of purity, was => absolutely essential for all merchants and other business people, and for government workers in the treasury department — for milled coins were the exception in Mexican commerce, cob pieces the norm, and raw gold and silver, including dust, were extremely common. The volume ends with the "Reglas varias, para sacar juntos, o separados en pasta, o en moneda los reales derechos, que se pagan a S. Mag. De el oro y de la plata, y para reducir a toda su ley estos metales." An economic work of which we trace fewer than nine U.S. copies, this was printed by Doña Maria de Rivera with a red and black title-page, and with woodcut arms on the first dedication page. The charming cut of a herald cherub appears after the decima dedicated to the author at the end of the preliminaries. Contemporary full Mexican calf, modestly tooled in gilt and with all edges red; recased, new endpapers. Final two leaves little ragged at edges costing a few letters and with small hole at center and short tears at inner margin; old staining and age-toning/browning throughout. => There is every indication that this well-produced little volume saw time "in the field"!

        AMELIA

      London: Printed for A. Millar, 1752. FIRST EDITION y. This is an attractively bound copy of Fielding's final novel, the story of the penniless young officer, William Booth, and the virtuous and long-suffering Amelia who runs off with him against her mother's wishes. The two are variously subjected to imprisonment, dire poverty, illicit advances from unscrupulous admirers, and other indignities before it is discovered that Amelia, not her duplicitous sister, is the rightful heiress to the family property. Along the way, Fielding examines various social evils of the time, including the scandals of the prisons and sponging-houses. According to Day, Henry Fielding (1707-54) was "the first English author unashamedly and forthrightly to write novels--that is, imaginary delineations of character and circumstances designed primarily for the understanding of the human situation." Our prior owner was the noted bibliophile and enthusiastic collector of British authors, Robert Hill Taylor (1908-85), who served as president of the Grolier Club, the Keats-Shelley Association of America, and the Bibliographical Society of America, and as chairman of the Council of Fellows of the Pierpont Morgan Library and of the Friends of the Princeton University Library.. 171 x 102 mm. (6 3/4 x 4"). With the terminal blank at the end of volume I and the ads at the end of volume II. Four volumes. FIRST EDITION. Modern tan crushed morocco, raised bands, spines gilt in panels with large fleuron, gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. Front pastedowns with morocco bookplate of Robert Hill Taylor. Cross III, 321-22; Rothschild 853. A touch of rubbing to corners, one board a little faded across the top, leaves a shade less than bright, with occasional minor foxing or small stains, but an excellent copy, generally clean and fresh in lustrous bindings with very little wear.

        Suite du livre intitule nouvelles fontaines filtrantes (1752) - Nouvelles fontaines filtrantes (1754) - Extrait du livre intitulé nouvelle fontaines domestiques (1752)

      1752 - 3 ouvrages en 1 volume : Paris, Antoine Bourdet, et Jean-Baptiste Coignard et Antoine Bourdet, 1752-1754, in-12, 3 ouvrages en 1 volume : frontispice, LXXXII, 332, (4) pages et 9 planches rehaussées à la main dont 8 repliées ; VIII, 71, (1), 46 pages et 2 planches repliées ; et, (2), 95, (1) pages, veau raciné de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné et portant une pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, filet à froid d'encadrement sur les plats, tranches et gardes marbrées, Rare ensemble d'ouvrages de physique expérimentale et d'hydraulique appliquée à la santé et à l'hygiène publique. Les trois textes sont en édition originale. On ignore presque tout de la vie de Joseph Amy, avocat au parlement d'Aix-en-Provence. Seuls les livres qu'il publia entre 1747 et 1759, sur la purification de l'eau utilisée en milieu domestique et les eaux et fontaines de la ville de Paris nous renseignent sur sa personne, sa vie et les relations qu'il entretint avec ses contemporains. Les ouvrages de ce curieux inventeur, avant tout soucieux du bien être de la population, de ce qu'il nomme lui-même, la "Santé Publique" (voir la planche XVI de la "Suite"), s'apparentent à de doux pamphlets promouvant, et faisant la publicité, des fontaines filtrantes mises au point par ses soins et défendant activement l'utilisation du plomb bien affiné contre celle de l'étain et du cuivre. Fort de la reconnaissance et de l'appui qui lui accordèrent, en 1748, l'Académie des Sciences, Réaumur et Falconet (voir les pages LXVIII à LXXIX de l'avertissement de la "Suite" où il renvoie à ces importants éloges), Amy détaille longuement chacune des machines qu'il inventa, celles-ci profitant toujours d'illustrations gravées sur cuivre, et condamne explicitement par des illustrations allégoriques l'emploi du cuivre (planches 14, 15 et 16 de la "Suite"), ainsi que l'ignorance et les mauvaises habitudes (voir son étonnant et très schématique "Plan de Paris", à la page 13 de la seconde partie des "Nouvelles fontaines" de 1752, où il divise la population de Paris en fonction de son niveau de connaissance des nouvelles fontaines proposées à la vente). Ces 3 ouvrages valent bien sur par leurs innovations, mais aussi par leur rhétorique simple et efficace : à une idée à défendre correspond une illustration. Ainsi, au total on compte pas moins de 16 figures représentant des schémas de fontaine ou de machine hydraulique : fontaine publique pour les villes et garnisons, parallèle des nouvelles fontaines avec les anciennes, différents états des fontaines de cuivre à Paris, machine à élever les eaux, fontaine filtrante pour bateau, petite fontaine pour raffiner l'eau déjà filtrée dans le fond de la cale d'un bateau, fontaine de cave de carrosse, ou de chaise de poste, "filtroir" militaire, marin ou domestique, "filtroir" d'abondance, "filtroir" par descension et ascension dans le sable, fontaine de fer blanc étamé ou plombé, nouvelle espèce de pierre poreuse, fontaine de poche, fontaine de cuisine, et enfin 3 types de fontaines de raffinage. Le troisième livre forme un "Extrait", ou plus exactement, l'abrégé d'un livre parut pour la première fois en 1750, les "Nouvelles fontaines domestiques". Ce dernier volet, uniquement descriptif (il ne renferme aucune illustration) contient des réflexions sur les matériaux à utiliser dans une cuisine (étain, cuivre, fer ?) et des remarques pratiques sur les robinets. L'auteur s'étend par la suite sur les vertus bienfaisantes et hygiéniques des nouvelles fontaines, et termine son épitome sur un véritable manuel à l'usage des nouveaux acheteurs de ses fontaines. Sur le premier contre-plat, l'ex-libris imprimé de l'abbé Paramelle, un des plus fameux découvreur de sources du XIXe siècle. Précieux ensemble qui nous plonge, d'une part au coeur des recherches de physique appliquée du siècle des Lumières, et d'autre part au milieu d'un essai d'entreprise manufacturière de grande ampleur entrepris par l'ambitieux Joseph Amy [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Dos pequeños tampones en verso de portada, de ingreso en la Harvard College Library el 1 de marzo de 1938 y visado de su salida en un expurgo.- // Proc.: Ex-libris de la Harvard College Library, expurgado.- // Suele mover a sorpresa que el Examen de ingenios de Huarte, cuyo indiscutible éxito editorial se tradujo en múltiples ediciones en castellano, italiano, francés e inglés, no fuese vertido al alemán ni el siglo XVI ni, sobre todo, en el XVII. Sin embargo, igual suerte corrieron las obras de autores de la talla de Montaigne, por ejemplo, de la misma generación que Huarte de San Juan (1). Las explicaciones deben buscarse en que en los medios intelectuales alemanes se manejaba el latín y el francés y en que hasta mediados del siglo XVIII no se inició en Alemania un movimiento de promoción de la propia lengua en el terreno intelectual con la fuerza suficiente como para posibilitar una actividad editorial de traducción a la propia lengua de las principales obras filosóficas que en vez de en latín, habían sido escritas en lenguas vernáculas. A ese movimiento no fue ajeno el genio de Lessing, cuya tesis de "licenciatura" [Magister] en Artes, de abril de 1752, en Witemberg (la misma ciudad en la que Lutero clavase a las puertas de una Iglesia las 95 tesis en alemán que dieron inicio a la Reforma), versó precisamente sobre algunos aspectos psicológicos de la obra de Huarte. Para este trabajo o a raíz de él realizó la que sería la primera traducción al alemán del "Examen de ingenios", publicada en Zerbst ese mismo año, esta que ofrecemos. La misma casa editorial volvería a imprimir la traducción de Lessing 30 años más tarde con las modificaciones debidas a la revisión realizada por el matemático Jakob Ebert. Sin embargo, sí que mueve a la sorpresa descubrir que de la primera edición de la primera traducción al alemán del Examen de Huarte, estando realizada nada menos que por Lessing, no exista ningún ejemplar en ninguna biblioteca en España (nosotros, al menos, hemos sido incapaces de localizarlo), y que de la postrera de 1783, solo exista uno, en la Biblioteca de Navarra. En la Biblioteca nacional se dispone, en cambio, de una edición facsímil de la primera edición, publicada en München, por Wilhelm Fink, en 1968. Sobre esta traducción y sobre la recepción de la obra de Huarte en Alemania, puede verse Martin Franzbach: "La traducción de Huarte por Lessing (1752): recepción e historia de la influencia del Examen de Ingenios para las Ciencias (1575) en Alemania".- Pamplona: Institución Príncipe de Viana; [Madrid]: Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas, 1978.- // Refs.: Díaz, IV, 1180: Graesse, III, 381; Iriarte, p. 133-4; Simón Díaz, XI, 5248.- // (1) La primera versión en alemán de los "Essais" de Montaigne es de 1753, al año siguiente de la primera del Examen de ingenios de Huarte de San Juan.

First edition. Venice's prominence as a port combined with its marshy situation, caused the city to be vulnerable to serious and frequent outbreaks of disease, particularly cholera. This pamphlet describes in considerable detail the precautions to be taken in preventing vessels from landing, and ensuring that passengers and cargoes were taken into quarantine in two island lazarettos before being allowed onto the mainland. There is detail of how ships were to be inspected and disinfected, how the lazarettos were administered and the passengers kept supplied with food and drink, how different commodities of goods were to be stored and purified etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The History of the Portuguese, during the Reign of Emmanuel: containing all their discoveries, from the coast of Africk to the farthest parts of China... Now first translated into English by James Gibbs

      London: A. Millar, 1752. Joints cracked but the sides firmly held, spine labels renewed.. Two volumes, octavo, contemporary mottled calf. First English edition. Osorio, often described as the "Portuguese Cicero", chronicled the reign of King Manuel I of Portugal (1495-1521), during which the sea route to India was discovered and the foundations of empire laid in Africa, Asia and America. The Latin original appeared in 1571. There were several foreign editions and translations, but the book did not appear in Portuguese itself until 1804. Osorio 'was born in Lisbon and studied at Salamanca, Paris, and Bologna. He became an official in India, private secretary to the infante Luis, held many high positions in the Church, and was eventually made Bishop of Silves, and later of Evora. The earl of Essex, during his raid into southern Portugal in 1596, captured Osorio's fine library, which he later presented to the Bodleian Library, where the books still remain, Osorio's book details the explorations, expeditions, and embassies under the reign of King Manuel of Portugal… included are the accomplishments of Cortereal, Vasco da Gama, Magellan, Cabral, and de Lemes…' (Hill catalogue).Osório's history 'was the book about the discoveries most widely read in the rest of Europe… Outside of Portugal his reputation was made by his chronicle. Montaigne in 1588 referred to him as "the best Latin historian of our century"' (Lach II/2 pp. 139-45).

Volume 4 includes 23 engravings, including 10 fold-outs. Corners bumped. Some scuffs and dents. Volume 4 has a bad bump on the front board. Discreet library markings.

In all volumes there is some marginalia, mild foxing, light stains and thumbprints. Generally clean and bright. "Containing all his Writings, Except the Life of Cicero: Many of which were never before Published.With a complete Index to the whole." Conyers was university librarian for Cambridge. His religious publications led and responded to much controversy. Here you will find his most important work "Introductory Discourses". Pope considered him a master of the language, and although some plagiarism in his work has been exposed, he has a lasting place of praise in terms of style and argument in the school of rationalist theology. He questioned the historical accuracy of the Bible and advocated opening up the church to a broader spectrum of beliefs. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
