        Paradise Lost

      London - J. and R. Tonson, 1758 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An early and very well-preserved copy of Milton's classic poem Paradise Lost, and one of the earliest of JohnBaskerville's printings. Once Paradise Lost was published, Milton's stature as epic poet was immediately recognised. He cast a formidable shadow over English poetry in the 18th and 19th centuries; he was often judged equal or superior to all other English poets, including Shakespeare. Taken from Thomas Newton's annotated edition of the poem. Newton (1704 - 1782) was an English cleric, biblical scholar and author. His most remembered workwas his annotated edition of Paradise Lost, including a biography of John Milton, published in 1749. John Baskerville printed works for the University of Cambridge in 1758 and, although an atheist, printed a splendid folio Bible in 1763. His typefaces were greatly admired by Benjamin Franklin, a printer and fellow member of the Royal Society of Arts, who took the designs back to the newly-created United States, where they were adopted for most federal government publishing. Baskerville also was responsible for significant innovations in printing, paper and ink production. He developed a technique which produced a smoother whiter paper which showcased his strong black type. Baskerville also pioneered a completely new style of typography adding wide margins and leading between each line. Condition: Rebound in half-morocco binding. Externally, very smart, with just some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages have some scattered spotting throughout. Overall:VERY GOOD INDEED..

The Faerie Queene was a new departure in the history of English poetry, being a combination of Italian romance, classical epic, and native English styles. (DNB)Louis du Guernier, 1687 - 1716, was a French engraver. Du Guernier was soon recognized as a good designer, etcher and engraver, especially [of] small historical subjects for books or plays, of which he did a great many (Vertue, Note books, 2. 131). He worked in particular for Jacob Tonson. . . He was involved in many prestigious undertakings, particularly for noble patrons. (DNB)Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. The hinges are starting but still generally firm.

      London: Printed by S. Richardson, and Sold by A. Millar...John Rivington...and R. and J. Dodsley, 1758 First edition of the first English translation of the complete works of Epictetus. This esteemed work was the standard English version prior to Oldfather's translation (1925-8). (See Long, Epictetus: A Stoic and Socratic Guide to Life, Oxford: 2002.). Contemporary calf, gilt-ruled spine with brown leather label, edges sprinkled red. . Quarto. With a scholarly introduction to the Stoic philosophers by the translator, an impressive list of subscribers, and an index and appendix of variant readings. Joints starting to crack, but sound. Endpapers lightly foxed, a few small splotches on edges, small chip in back free endpaper. Engraved bookplate of Iames Hustler of Acklam, dated 1730; armorial bookplate of British judge Geoffrey, Lord Cross of Chelsea (1904-1989). A very good, clean copy. Elizabeth Carter (1717-1806) was a noted member of the Blue Stocking Circle. Despite an early learning disability and "with a persistence that won the praise of V. Woolf in A Room of One's Own," (as Margaret Drabble reminds us in the Oxford Companion to English Literature) she learned Latin, Greek, and Hebrew in childhood with her brothers, and later studied French, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Arabic. She was a friend of Samuel Johnson, who thought her one of the best Greek scholars he had known, and invited her to contribute to The Rambler. She made a number of translations, of which this is considered her masterpiece. It was undertaken at the request of her friend, Catherine Talbot, who arranged for publication and solicited subscribers, amongst which were a large number of women, and members of the Johnson circle.

(inclusa l?antip.), XXXII,462 pp.num., 1 c.nn. (indice dei rami), illustrato da 25 tavv. inc. in rame (le relative descriz. sono su foglio a parte). Opera dedicata alla Maestà di Carlo Re delle Due Sicilie.. Testo latino affiancato dall'ottima traduzione e commento del Marchese Galiani (1724-1774), autore anche dei disegni delle tavole, inc. da Francesco Cepparulli. Il vol. è ornato da interessanti grandi iniziali e finali, con vedute di rovine classiche, inc. su legno da Ignazio Lucchesini; l'antiporta (che rappresenta un allegorico "trionfo dell'architettura"), il frontespizio e la vignetta alla dedica sono inc. in rame da Francesco La Marra. Il lavoro dell'erudito marchese napoletano è di grande pregio. Fu una delle iniziative più importanti tra gli studi vitruviani di tutto il secolo e fu accolto con generale favore dall'ambiente colto italiano, tanto che ebbe almeno sette ristampe. I commenti, che risentono del pensiero razionalista dell?Illusminismo e ampiamente presente tra i patrizi della Corte napoletana, sono in strettissima relazione con l?interesse per l?archeologia, che si diffuse in Europa nella seconda metà del Settecento, grazie soprattutto agli scritti di Winkelmann. Importante "prima edizione" della traduzione e commento del Galiani. Cfr. Berlin Katalog,1820 - Fowler Collection,424 - Comolli,III,54-55 - Cicognara 733 - Cat. L?Archivolto (1983) - Riccardi,II,618.

        De l'esprit

      Paris: Chez Durand 1758 Paris: Chez Durand, 1758. First edition, second issue. 4to (9-3/4 x 7-1/4 inches). [4], xxii, 643, [1] pp. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt spine with red leather label, marbled endpapers and edges. Upper joint starting but solid, half-title with small stain at outer edge, overall a fresh, crisp copy. Smith E.1B . First edition of the last major work of the French philosopher and encyclopEdiste, Helvetius, DE L'ESPRIT (On the Mind) was condemned by the Church and the Sorbonne for its uncompromising atheism, regarded as dangerously revolutionary by the Court of Louis XV, and publicly condemned by Parliament. A follower of Locke's empiricism, Helvetius's work was an important development in the history of utilitarian thought, and both Bentham and Mill were strongly influenced by Helvetius' elaboration of a theory which saw mankind as the product of his environment and his education.The first issue of the first edition is very rare: Smith locates only 15 copies. Although the second issue of the 1758 quarto is not as rare as the first, it should be noted that only one copy of the First edition has appeared at auction (in ABPC) since 1975, and that copy was the first issue; no copies of the second issue have appeared for 30 years

        De l'Esprit.

      Paris, Chez Durand, 1758. 4to. Very nice cont. full mottled calf w. five raised bands on richly gilt back. All edges of boards gilt. Top-layer of leather on back-board gone. Upper hinges a bit weak, top-capital worn. Internally very nice and clean. W. the large armorial bookplate of Lord Viscount Lymington. W. half-title. Large woodcut title-vignette and many smaller vignettes throughout. (4), XII, 643, (1, Approbation + Privilege) pp.. First edition, second issue of the monumental work of French Enlightenment. Helvetius' main work, because of which he is remembered today. The work caused an immense uproar, when it appeared. It was considered heretical, atheistic, immoral etc. and lost its privilege within a few weeks; it was heavily condemned by the Church and the State and was burnt by the Hangman, the plan being to destroy all copies of it. Rarely had a book been met with such opposition, condemned by both the son of Louis XV and the Sorbonne, and the priests succeeded in convincing the court that the doctrines presented in this work could hardly be more dangerous, so even though Helvetius wrote three retractions, the book was still publically burned. Probably due to the noisy condemnation of the work, it was almost immediately translated into all European languages, making it quite influential. The likes of Bentham and Mill were influenced by the early utilitarian thoughts presented in the work, but apparently France was not ready for these new thoughts. When the Encyclopédie of Diderot and d'Alembert was suppressed for the second time, this had much to do with De l'Esprit, since Helvetius was thought to have been inspired by the dangerous encyclopedia.Both issues of the first edition are rare, and only four complete copies are known of the first issue. The printing history of the work is extremely complicated, but due to David Smith's bibliography from 2001, it has now been possible to positively identify this copy as being the first edition, second issue, i.e. E.1B. Not in Graesse, not in Brunet.From the library of Lord Viscount Lymington, who was married to Catherine Conduitt; because of her mother being the niece of Newton, his books and manuscripts ended up in the library of Viscount Lymington

        Försök til mineralogie, eller mineral-rikets upställning.

      Sthlm, Wildiska tryckeriet, 1758. 8:o. (40),251 s. Nött samtida hfrbd med upphöjda bind och spår av mörkbrunt infärgat titelfält. Svagt rödstänkta snitt. Pärmsidorna hårt nötta. En namnteckning bortklippt överst på försättsbladet och författarnamnet skrivet både med bläck och blyerts på titelbladet. Inlagan däremot mycket bra med några enstaka rättelser och marginalanteckningar. Ett litet nagg i övre marginalen på s. 231. Från Ericsberg.. Utgiven av P. J. Bergius. Översattes till tyska, engelska, franska, italienska och ryska. En ny svensk upplaga utkom 1781. "Försök til mineralogie" är Axel Fredric Cronstedts huvudarbete med vilket han snabbt vann ryktbarhet i Europa. Vid slutet av 1760- och under 1770-talet var Cronstedt en lika stor auktoritet inom mineralogin som Linné inom botaniken. Hans revolutionerande indelning av mineralriket byggde på kemisk analys istället för på klassificering efter yttre egenskaper och utseende. När A. G. Werner vid slutet av seklet utvecklade sitt system, som med tiden skulle bli rådande, följde det i huvuddrag det som presenterats i Cronstedts arbete 40 år tidigare
