John Milton
Birmingham: J. and R. Tonson, 1758. The first edition of this work to be printed by John Baskerville, and one of the earliest books to be printed in his innovative transitional typeface. Paradise Regain'd was composed in Milton's cottage in Chalfont St Giles in Buckinghamshire, and was based on the Gospel of Luke's version of the Temptation of Christ. The poem is four books in length, in contrast with Paradise Lost's twelve. One of the major concepts emphasised throughout Paradise Regained is the play on reversals. As implied by its title, Milton sets out to reverse the "loss" of Paradise. Thus, antonyms are often found next to each other throughout the poem, reinforcing the idea that everything that was lost in the first epic is going to be regained by the end of the mini-epic. CONDITION In a beautiful crushed morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally, lovely condition although front hinge is strained. Internally, firmly bound, generally bright and clean if not for slight marginal water damage affecting first and last few pages. Overall Condition: Very Good.

John Milton
Birmingham: 1758. To Paradise Regain'd there is also Milton's closet drama Samson Agonistes and Poems Upon Several Occasions. With a life of Milton to the preface of Paradise Regain'd and an introductory preface by Baskerville to Paradise Lost. Both of these volumes are printed by John Baskerville for J and R Tonson. They are some of the earliest books to be printed in his innovative transitional typeface. Both Paradise Lost and Paradise Regain'd are arguably some of John Milton's best poetical works with Paradise Lost being regarded as Milton's major work. Both are written in blank verse and relate to Christian history. Paradise Lost concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man, the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. It consists of ten books and over one thousand lines of verse. Paradise Regain'd shares similar theological themes to Paradise Lost and deals with the temptation of Christ as recounted in the Gospel of Luke. One major concept of Paradise Regain'd is the idea of reversals due to Milton's aim to reverse the 'loss' of Paradise. Frequently, antonyms are often found next to each other, reinforcing the idea that everything that was lost in the first epic will be regained by the end of this brief, four book, epic. CONDITION In full calf bindings Externally, rubbed. Particularly to the spine and joints in addition to the boards. Lacking both spine labels to vol II and most of the first spine label to vol I, as well as lacking the second spine label.

Prosper Marchand
1758. First edition, 2 volumes in 1 volume (as usual), folio, pp. [4], 330, [6] Catalogue des Livres qui se trouvent a La Haye chez Pierre de Hondt; [4], 328, [28]; title pages printed in red and black, text in double column, engraved plate, genealogical tree of the Estienne dynasty, several engravings in the text, woodcut initials and ornaments; a very nice copy in contemporary cat's-paw calf, gilt-decorated spine in 7 compartments, red morocco label in 1. Designed as a supplement to Bayle's Dictionnaire historique. "Prosper Marchand was a bookseller and an editor, to whom the literary world is greatly indebted ... He died in 1756, and left his library and manuscripts to the University of Leyden. He wrote, among other works Le Dictionaire historique ... the original manuscript of which 'was all written on little pieces of paper of different sizes, some not bigger than one's thumb-nail, and written in a character so exceedingly small that it was not legible to the naked eye. It has been said that this is the first book printed with the help of a microscope' (Watt). It is, however, a work full of erudition although the style is charcetrized as not being very pure" (Bigmore & Wyman II, p. 23). The catalogue of books offered by De Hondt at the back of the first volume is an impressive 12-column affair listing approximately 200 titles in French and Latin. [Attributes: First Edition]

Madrid, 1743 recounting the French scientific expedition from the perspective of Ulloa, a Spanish sailor who accompanied them on the mission.

BOSSE, Abraham
8vo, frontispiece, xxxii, 205, [4] p., 4 fine headpieces, 21 plates, most folding,, spine gilt, faint waterstain in prelims but a clean and fresh copy,, contemporary mottled calf, lower portion of boards at one time affected by damp and yawning away (repairable, price allows for this) Best edition of the key 18th-century manual for printmakers, enlarged from the 1745 edition by a chapter and 2 plates ('L'impression qui imite les tableaux, de la Gravûre en manière de crayon, & de celle qui imite le lavis'). E.F.Ferrer, IJHSS 4 (2014) 24-32 shows how the radical revision by Charles-Nicolas Cochin in 1745 had transformed Bosse's manual of 1645 to accommodate 18th-century taste and methods. This is therefore a gap after A&R H58, who cite only the 1649 edition. A.M. Hind showed in 1907 (note in the Burlington Magazine) that although the printed date is 1758 this book cannot have been issued before 1773

John Milton
Birmingham: 1758. To Paradise Regain'd there is also Milton's closet drama Samson Agonistes and Poems Upon Several Occasions. With a life of Milton to the preface of Paradise Regain'd and an introductory preface by Baskerville to Paradise Lost. Both of these volumes are printed by John Baskerville for J and R Tonson. They are some of the earliest books to be printed in his innovative transitional typeface. Both Paradise Lost and Paradise Regain'd are arguably some of John Milton's best poetical works with Paradise Lost being regarded as Milton's major work. Both are written in blank verse and relate to Christian history. Paradise Lost concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man, the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. It consists of ten books and over one thousand lines of verse. Paradise Regain'd shares similar theological themes to Paradise Lost and deals with the temptation of Christ as recounted in the Gospel of Luke. One major concept of Paradise Regain'd is the idea of reversals due to Milton's aim to reverse the 'loss' of Paradise. Frequently, antonyms are often found next to each other, reinforcing the idea that everything that was lost in the first epic will be regained by the end of this brief, four book, epic. In full calf bindings Externally, rubbed. Particularly to the spine and joints in addition to the boards. Lacking both spine labels to vol II and most of the first spine label to vol I, as well as lacking the second spine label. Some holes to the rear board of volume I due to worming.

Glasgow Printed by John Bryce and David Peterson MDCCLIX Up for sale is a very scares and incredibly early work of Virginia law.

This present edition brings the acts up to 1758. It is unknown why this book was printed in Glasgow rather than in Virginia like the previous edition. This book has contempoary library binding and typical stamping. The title page does have a missing corner as pictured. This is a very clean copy.

Paradise Regain'd was composed in Milton's cottage in Chalfont St Giles in Buckinghamshire, and was based on the Gospel of Luke's version of the Temptation of Christ. The poem is four books in length, in contrast with Paradise Lost's twelve. One of the major concepts emphasised throughout Paradise Regained is the play on reversals. As implied by its title, Milton sets out to reverse the "loss" of Paradise. Thus, antonyms are often found next to each other throughout the poem, reinforcing the idea that everything that was lost in the first epic is going to be regained by the end of the mini-epic.

HELVETIUS, Claude Adrien.
Smith, Bibliography H.3; cf. Cioranescu 33651 (other edition); for Helvétius's philosophy: Blom, A Wicked Company, pp. 126-129. Third (or second?) edition of one of the key works of the Radical Enlightenment, published in the same year as the first edition. The author had evoked huge outcry with the publication of De L'esprit (1758), a carefully argued essay on the mind, in which he roundly rejected metaphysics and the idea of Truth, replacing Christian morals by purely utilitarian ethics and stressing the importance of education as the key to moral behaviour. In De l'homme, Helvétius expanded and clarified his views, provoking even Diderot to write a Réfutation. The present edition was most likely printed in France, and, as Smith argues, it was probably this edition that the Paris Parliament condemned on 10 January 1774.Binding slightly rubbed; top of spine slightly worn. Fine copy.

Whitworth, Charles Whitworth, Baron.
Printed at Strawberry-Hill, 1758. First edition and sole Strawberry Hill edition; second and third editions appeared from other publishers in 1761 and 1771. As handsomely printed a work as one would expect of Horace Walpole's Strawberry Hill press, this bears a title-page offering an engraved vignette of Strawberry Hill and presents Walpole's account of the author and his assessment of the Account as an "Advertisement" occupying pp. [iii]-xxiv. The errata appear on the last leaf.=> Limited to 700 copies. Whitworth was perhaps the most effective English ambassador to Russia in the first half of the 18th century. His Account was originally written for the foreign office and remained in manuscript till Walpole printed it. The DNB (on-line) writes of it, "Succinct and perceptive, it was a survey of Petrine Russia which held its readership through to the century's end and beyond." Horace Walpole (1717-97), the 4th earl of Orford, is best remembered as the author of the Gothic novel The Castle of Otranto. Among bibliophiles he is also remembered for his private press, variously known as the Officina Arbutana or the Strawberry Hill Press. Walpole's almost fantastic wealth allowed him the connoisseur's luxury of maintaining this noble enterprise, which he operated in the arena of the rebirth of fine printing in Great Britain that was being carried on by the Foulis brothers, Baskerville, and others. Provenance: 20th-century bookplate of William & Helena Hand.

This edition has therefore been accepted as "the basis of zoological nomenclature". (Sandberg no. 12). "Systema Natura" is considered the bible of natural history, and with the definitive tenth edition of it, it founded modern zooloical nomenclature and changed the science more profoundly than any other work before or after.

Tagli decorati a spruzzo. Con un ritratto del Celano, inciso su rame, all'antiporta e tredici tavole, anch'esse incise su rame, fuori testo, più volte ripiegate, tra le quali una veduta di Napoli a volo d'uccello e una veduta di Chiaia e Posillipo con il Vesuvio fumante. Piccolissimo strappo, senza perdite, perfettamente rimarginato da intervento di restauro, nel margine interno delle tavole alla prima giornata e ad una alla seconda. Qualche piccolo, leggero segno d'umido, per il resto esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara edizione. Alla prima giornata, le pagine 1-56 ospitano le "Notizie generali della nostra città di Napoli". Si tratta della terza edizione della famosissima guida di Napoli del Celano. L'opera aveva incontrato un grande successo e già all'epoca sia gli esemplari della princeps, stampata a Napoli nel 1692 da Giacomo Raillard, sia quelli della seconda edizione, uscita nel 1724, sempre a Napoli, dai torchi di Gianfrancesco Paci, erano divenuti assai rari. Il tipografo Paci decise dunque di ripubblicarla, riveduta, corretta, aggiornata e ampliata, sia nel testo che nell'apparato iconografico, avvalendosi, come lui stesso riporta nell'avviso "Al leggitore" al tomo primo, dell'aiuto di "una persona alquanto versata in queste materie": le aggiunte al testo vennero im … [Click Below for Full Description]
