        Istoria critica della vita civile. Scritta da Vincenzio Martinelli

      per Giorgio Woodfall Londra: per Giorgio Woodfall. 1752. "First edition, 4to, pp. 10, [2], 311; woodcut vignette on title-p.; contemporary full red goatskin, elaborate gilt borders on covers incorporating stars and fleurons, gilt-decorated spine in 7 compartments, citron morocco label in 1, a.e.g; 8 small pockmarks on back cover, front cover slightly rubbed, else fine. Martinelli (1702-1785) was from Florence, but he lived for many years in London where he published three books, of which this is the first. A volume of essays appeared in 1758, and a History of England, 1770-73. An interesting 6-p. list of 114 subscribers includes his great correspondent Horace Mann, as well as Horace Walpole, Dr. Akenside, the Earl of Chesterfield, and Voltaire's friend, Everard Fawkener. One of the most appealing allusions to Martinelli is in Boswell (1773) who reports that he and Johnson met the Italian, along with Goldsmith, at a dinner given by General Paoli, the Corsican exile. Boswell records Johnson's remarks on whether or not Martinelli should bring his History of England up to the present time; as Martinelli was a Whig, Johnson is less than enthusiastic about the prospect. Boswell also gives an anecdote which Martinelli told about Sigr. Carlo Townshend, to whom this book is dedicated. The present volume consists of 18 essays on various aspects of civil society, including education (and the education of women), marriage, poverty, liberal arts, reading, science, the theatre, law, and so forth. Hazen's catalogue of Horace Walpole's Library (1161) lists another Martinelli title, but notes that this one was not present in the Strawberry-Hill inventory, despite Walpole's subscription."

        The Practical Fruit-Gardener. Being the newest and best method of raising, planting and pruning all sorts of fruit-trees, agreably to the experience and practice of the most eminent gardeners and nurserymen ... revised and recommended by the Reverend Mr. Lawrence and Mr. Bradley

      London: printed for T. Woodward; and sold by D. Browne, 1752. Octavo. (7 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches). Half title, 2pp. publisher's advertisements. 6 folding engraved plans of fruit or kitchen garden lay-outs. Contemporary speckled calf, covers bordered with a gilt rule and a dog-tooth roll, spine in six compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by double gilt fillets, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, small expert repairs to spine. A re-issue of the second expanded edition of this influential work by "one of the most outstanding authors on practical gardening during the first half of the eighteenth century" (Henrey). This work was first published in 1724, with 3 plates and a total of 368 pages. The second edition of 1731 was expanded to 408 pages and 6 plates. The present example is the 1752 re-issue of the 1731 second edition with a new half-title and title page. The author, Stephen Switzer, Sweetsur or Sweetzer, was born in Hampshire, and was initially a practical gardener who received his training at Brompton Park nursery under London and Wise and subsequently a garden designer who worked on the planning and layout of a number of famous gardens including Castle Howard, Lumley Castle, Nostell Priory, Cirencester Park and the Somerset home of the Earl of Orrery, to whom the present work is dedicated. Switzer was also the author of a number of influential books, besides the present work, covering many aspects of practical gardening, the first of which, The Nobleman, Gentleman, and Gardener's Recreation, appeared in 1715.

        The Principles of Politic Law: Being the Sequel to the Principles of Natural Law. Translated into English by Mr. [Thomas] Nugent

      London, Printed for J. Nourse..., 1752. FIRST ENGLISH TRANSLATION. 8vo, 200 x 120 mms., pp. viii], 372, contemporary lightly speckled calf, spine ornately gilt in compartments, morocco; spine a little rubbed, edges of title-page browned, but generally a very good copy. Burlamaqui (1694 - 1748) had also written The Principles of Natural Law, which had been published in 1748, also translated by Thomas Nugent. His basic principle is often described as "rational utilitarianism." Among his concerns here familiar: waging war, including reprisals, when questions of ownership of property are in dispute. The original French edition, Principes du Droit Politique (Geneva, 1751), has an interesting textual history, in that it was published from an incomplete manuscript after his death. Burlamaqui had left his manuscripts to his sister and daughter, instructing them that the manuscript(s) was/were not to be published in book form; since they had the original manuscript, it is not clear how the editors of the French edition managed to find or to construct a copy-text. Nugent obviously translated from the French text of 1751, but he makes no allusion to or mention of the textual sources of Principes du Droit Politique. Goldsmiths' 875.

II: [22], 905 (i.e., 907), [63 (index)] pp.; 2 maps, 2 fold. maps (out of 8 maps & 60 plts. total). First edition of this descriptive overview of the New World, sponsored by German Protestant theologian Siegmund Jakob Baumgarten and compiled by Johann Friedrich Schröter, who translated and incorporated much of Lafitau's Moeurs des sauvages Américains, among other sources. The black-letter text is ornamented with decorative capitals, head- and tailpieces, and (in this copy) six copper-engraved plates (of the original larger number, see collation); present here are maps of "Hayti," San Domingo, Mexico, and "die Mexicanische See," and plates XII (antiquities representing deities) and XIV (two ceremonial activities). Along with its accounts of native religions and customs, and its discovery and exploration narratives, the work includes a section on chocolate ("ein Geschenk, das Mexico den Europäern gemacht," p. 333), potatoes, cassava, and other New World food items, as well as beers and wines. Provenance: Private bookplate on pastedowns and ownership stamp of John Carter Brown on first leaf of preliminaries and elsewhere. On his death to his son John Nicholas Brown (1861–1900). On his death deeded to the John Carter Brown Library. Deaccessioned 2008. Howes S200; Library Company, Afro-Americana, 9182; Sabin 77989. 19th-century half brown morocco and marbled paper–covered boards, spines with gilt-stamped titles and bands; moderately rubbed.

I and first text page of vol. II each with Brown's red signature rubber-stamp. Lacking four maps and 58 plates. Scattered faint foxing and spotting, vol. II with lower portions of front endpapers and first few leaves waterstained, pages overall generally clean. Priced to reflect plate absences — but this is a worthwhile text, complete, solidly bound, and with an interesting association.

        Ædes Walpolianæ: or, a description of the collection of pictures at Houghton-Hall in Norfolk, the seat of the Right Honourable Sir Robert Walpole, Earl of Orford

      London: printed [by John Hughs, from the colophon] in the year, , MDCCLII [1752]. Quarter-Bound Calf. Royal 4to: 143,[1]pp, with two copper-engraved portraits by Vertue (of Sir Robert and Lady Walpole) and four folding architectural plates (two floor plans and views of the East and West fronts). Includes "A sermon on painting" (which Horace wrote for the amusement of Sir Robert) and "A journey to Houghton . . . A poem. By the Reverend Mr. Whaley." Continental quarter calf over marbled boards. Unidentified copper-engraved armorial book plate to front paste down. On the front fly leaf, in an elegant hand, an old inscription at top: "Cornelius Grogan. Ex dono Guli: Tench," and below (in Grogan's hand) is copied the Latin inscription from the foundation stone of Houghton Hall. (Grogan was the eldest son of John Grogan of Johnstown Castle, Wexford, a Protestant landlord and member of the Irish parliament. On the outbreak of the Irish rebellion of 1798, Cornelius joined the insurgents, and was later court-martialed and hanged and beheaded on Wexford bridge.) Boards rubbed, very occasional text soiling, else an excellent, wide-margined example, beautifully printed, clean, fresh and bright, in handsome period binding. Hazen, Walpole, 4. Sowerby 4238. Lowndes V, 2818. & The Second Edition, with greatly expanded room-by-room description of the painting collection of Sir Robert Walpole, Earl of Orford (England's first prime minister and the author's father), "incorporating numerous corrections and additions in the text and plates." (Hazen) When he finally fell from power in 1742 and brought his treasures from Downing Street to Houghton Hall (the family estate in Norfolk), Walpole owned the greatest private art collection in Europe. After Horace returned from his Grand Tour in 1737, he compiled Aedes Walpoliana, which was first published in 1747, and which compared Walpole’s magnificent collection to those of the Continent's princes and noblemen. Houghton Hall "provided a setting for Walpole's magnificent art collection, which even the earl of Oxford was compelled to admire. . . . [B]y 1736 he [Walpole] owned 421 pictures, of which at least 400 had been acquired by him. His taste mirrored that of the age, and the collection was particularly strong in Dutch, especially Flemish, works, while containing significant numbers of paintings from the French and Italian schools. . . . At Houghton, the old masters were concentrated in the salon and drawing room and included such masterpieces as Van Dyck's 'The Holy Family' and Rembrandt's 'Abraham's Sacrifice.'" (ODNB) In 1779, when the third earl of Orford decided to sell the collection to raise money, Christie (who founded the auction house) handled the greatest country house picture sale of the eighteenth century, in which Walpole's collection was sold privately to Catherine the Great for the then record sum of £40,000." Parenthetically, Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of this edition, one of the books he bought in 1785 from the Rev. Samuel Henley. (Sowerby)

That latter year he was alao elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1675 he edited John Wilkins's Principles of Natural Religion, completing what was left unfinished of it, and in 1682 his Sermons. Along with Burnet, Tillotson attended William Russell, Lord Russell on the scaffold in 1683. In 1684, he wrote a Discourse against Transubstantiation. He afterwards enjoyed the friendship of Lady Russell, and it was partly through her that he obtained so much influence with Princess Anne, who followed his advice in regard to the settlement of the crown on William of Orange. He possessed the special confidence of William and Mary, and was made clerk of the closet to the king in March 1689. It was chiefly through his advice that the king appointed an ecclesiastical commission for the reconciliation of the Dissenters. In August of this year he was appointed by the chapter of his cathedral to exercise the archiepiscopal jurisdiction of the province of Canterbury during the suspension of Sancroft. He was also about the same time named dean of St Paul's. Soon afterwards he was elected to succeed Sancroft; but accepted the promotion with extreme reluctance, and it was deferred from time to time, at his request, until April 1691. In 1693 he published four lectures on the Socinian controversy, partly to clear his own name from charges of sympathy with Socinianism in his previous associations with Thomas Firmin, Stephen Nye and others. His attempts to reform certain abuses of the Church, especially that of clerical non-residence, awakened much ill-will, and of this the Jacobites took advantage, pursuing him to the end of his life with insult and reproach. He died on 22 November 1694. For his manuscript sermons Tillotson's widow received 2500 guineas. Ralph Barker edited some 250 of them together with the "Rule of Faith" (1695-1704). In 1752 an edition appeared in 3 vols., with Life by Thomas Birch, compiled from Tillotson's original papers and letters. Various selections from his sermons and works have been published separately. AMS Press, New York, published a modern edition of his works in the 1980s. In his home town of Sowerby, a statue of Tillotson still exists in St. Peter's church and an avenue is named after him in the lower end of the town.

        Istoria Critica della Vita Civile

      Londra: Per Giogrio Woodfall..., 1752. FIRST EDITION. 4to, 294 x 231 mms., pp. 12, 311 [312 blank], 19th century half calf, marbled boards, neatly rebacked at some stage, title in gilt on spine. With the "Milton,/ Peterborough" book label on the top margin of the front paste-down end-paper. The subscribers include Mark Akenside, Earl of Chesterfield, Moses Mendez and two other members of his family, the dedicatee Charles Townshend, and Horace Walpole. Martinelli (1702 - 1785) came to England in 1748 and this was the first of three books that he published in England, and, as E. H. Thorne records, "made his reputation as a man of letters, and was reprinted several times both in England and in Italy. It consists of nineteen chapters each dealing with one aspect of la vita civile; aspects ranging from education and the duties of family life, through industry, art, and science, laws and methods of government, to la vita felice, and it ends - inevitably for a foreigner in eighteenth-century England - with a chapter 'della liberta.'" Among the good and the great that he met was Charles Burney, whose daughter, Fanny, recorded in 1771, "He has a most uncommon flow of wit, and with it the utmost bitterness of satire and raillery of ill nature. His vanity and self-conceit exceed every person's I ever saw; and far from endeavouring to conceal this weakness, he glories in it, and thinks he but does himself justice in esteeming himself the head of whatever company he is in, and (openly) manifesting that he does so. He is not satisfied with priding himself that he speaks to the Great with sincerity, he piques himself upon treating them with rudeness." E. H. Thorne, "Vincenzo Martinelli in England: 1748 - 1744," Italaian Studies (1956).

        An Account of Six Years Residence in Hudson's Bay from 1733 to 1736 and 1744 to 1747

      London: Payne and Bouquet. 1752. First Edition, complete. 8vo; (4), vi, 84pp; appendix 95, 3 foldouts, rebound in new quarter leather over marbled boards. Ex-library with faint 2 x 1" oval Lynn Free Public Library stamp on the title page, shelf numbers on verso, pp. 9 and 51 (appendix); pp. 9-34, 1" minor damp- staining at gutter base 1 ¾" damp-stain across gutter top descending at most ¼" into page, minor damage across base of p. 68, top edge slightly dampened from headbands in about 2". Otherwise a clean copy with all fold- outs, very good. & Robson&#39;s ACCOUNT OF SIX YEARS RESIDENCE is one of the very few publicly-printed eighteenth century descriptions of the Hudson&#39;s Bay area, making it an indispensable reference on the early history of the local. It takes on added importance as one of the very few contemporary descriptions of the region.& Joseph Robson&#39;s association with the Hudson&#39;s Bay Company, known as the HBC, began in 1733 with a three-year term as a stonemason. He returned to the region again in 1744, this time as the Surveyor and Supervisor of Buildings. His experiences with the HBC, however, left him disaffected. Upon his return to London, he wrote his ACCOUNT OF SIX YEARS RESIDENCE, which not only describes the geography of Hudson&#39;s Bay, but also decries the HBC&#39;s governance and argues for an end to their trade monopoly on the area. Robson&#39;s argument against the HBC is based on their limited propensity to explore and develop the region beyond their few already-established trading posts, something he felt would open up a new market to British trade.

The work is occasionally, though not securely, attributed to Sarah Fielding. L'orpheline angloise had first appeared the previous year also with a (false) Londres imprint.

(signed Charpentier) plus 4 engraved plates (one in each volume), signed P. Aveline. Paper flaw or tear to pp. 185-188 in vol. 4, across much of each of the two leaves but with no loss of text. Nineteenth-century quarter calf, flat spines, gilt in an attractive "romantique" style. Slightly rubbed. A very good copy. [Not in COPAC.] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Das Neue Testament unsers Herren und Heilandes Jesu Christi, nach der Deutschen Uebersetzung D. Martin Luthers

      16mo. Original full calf with both metal clasps present and fully functional. 537pp, (5pp). Front and rear flyleaves are fairly modern crude replacements; text block moderately age toned throughout, with mild occasional foxing. A tight and attractive second printing of this noted "New Testament" issue from the press of the well-known Philadelphia printer (1752-1837); the printing office and home in which this was printed still stands today; it was built in 1730, purchased by Billmeyer in 1789 and is supposedly the site from which George Washington directed his Continental Army forces in the Battle of Germantown. When Billmeyer and his father-in-law set up their Lutheran press in the 1780s, they acquired the surviving equipment of the reknowned Philadelphia printer Christopher Saur Jr., whose press the British had destroyed in 1777. The two small leather straps on this copy are old but not original, but all the brass clasp parts are present and attractive -- and it still clicks firmly closed. Despite mild wear, an exceptional copy.

        A View of Richmond Hill up the River. / Vue du Pais proche de la Riviere prise de la Montagne de Richmond

      London: Printed for & Sold by Robert Sayer at the Golden Buck opposite Fetter Lane Fleet Street, 1752. Engraved by Grignion after A. Heckel. Engraving with beautiful colour. In excellent condition. Framed in gold frame with a cream washline mount. Image size: 9 x 15 1/8 inches. Framed Size: 17 1/8 x 22 1/4 inches. A beautiful Vue d&#39;Optique of Richmond in Surry, England During the eighteenth century "vues d&#39;optique" or "perspective views" became extremely popular in England and Europe. Like other optical prints they capitalized on a connoisseur market eager for the latest novelty. English publishers such as John Bowles and Robert Sayer had great success with these optical views, which quickly developed into a collecting craze that swept through print shops on both sides of the Channel. "Vues d&#39;optiques" were specifically designed to create the illusion of perspective when viewed with a zograscope or perspective glass. These viewing devices used a series of reflecting mirrors to enhance the illusion of depth in the print, creating a veritable "view" for the onlooker. Typically these prints depicted city or landscape views, and were horizontal in format. They had roughly the same dimensions and were sold with heavy opaque colouring, so as to show the tints when viewed through the lens. In their heyday, optical prints were a technical revolution; they could be seen in almost every fashionable drawing room, and were enjoyed by the poorer classes in print shops or at traveling fairs. For a small fee the citizens of Europe and England could travel the world without leaving their village. The "vue d&#39;optique" was the first medium to bring the visible appearance of the wider world to a large European public. Ironically the artists and engravers who created these prints rarely had first hand knowledge of the scenes depicted, hence the views were often not as accurate as they were advertised to be. As a result of their constant handling, optical prints such as these are rare, especially in good condition. They are not only beautiful images but a fascinating glimpse into the history of printmaking. Clayton, The English Print 1688-1802, 140-141

        Opera Minora, Olim Separatim, Nunc Conjunctim Edita. Recensuit et

      1752. Bynkershoek (Bijnkershoek), Cornelis van [1673-1743]. Opera Minora, Olim Separatim, Nunc Conjunctim Edita. Recensuit et Nonnulla Addidit Auctor. Indicem Operum Exhibet Pagina, Quae Generalem Praefationem Excipit. Leiden: Apud Samuelam Luchtmans et Filios, 1752. [xvi], 571, [23] pp. Quarto (8" x 6"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine, small shelf label to foot of spine. Some shelfwear and light soiling, boards slightly bowed. Title page with copperplate vignette printed in red and black, woodcut initials. Interior notably fresh. A handsome copy of an important title. * Second, and final, edition. (The first edition was reissued in 1744.) Bynkershoek was a Dutch jurist who founded the positive school of international law, which held that usage and practice were more important than deductions drawn from natural law. He was also the first to propose the "three-mile limit" rule, which states that a nation may claim sovereignty over territorial waters to a distance of three miles from shore. Respected during his lifetime, his works are still consulted today. This collection of "minor works" actually contains two of his most important essays: "Dissertation de Domino Maris (Dissertation on the Sovereignty of the Sea)" and "De Foro Legatorum, Tam in Causa Civili, Quam Criminali (On the Jurisdiction Over Ambassadors in Both Civil and Criminal Cases)." The other five essays address aspects of Roman and Dutch law. Dekkers, Bibliotheca Belgica Juridica 15 (15).

        The Acts of the General Assembly of the Province of New-Jersey

Contemporary sheep, covers bordered with a blind double- fillet, expertly rebacked to style with spines with raised bands in seven compartments. The second compilation of the laws of New Jersey, and the first to be printed (in part) in the colony. This compilation of laws covers the period from 1703-1761. The second volume, printed by James Parker at his Woodbridge press, is the first volume of New Jersey laws to be published in the colony. Given the nine year gap between the two volumes, complete sets are uncommon. The first owner of this set, Andrew Sinnickson, who has inscribed the first volume with the date 16 April 1757, served as a member of the New Jersey Provincial Congress (1775), the New Jersey Provincial Convention (1776) and the New Jersey Legislative Council (1776).
