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. Some holes to the rear board of volume I due to worming … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

First edition, in Latin, of one of Swedenborg's early mystical writings, published anonymously by John Lewis in London in an edition of 1000 copies.

The spirits of Mercury travel across the universe in globe-like phalanxes "to acquire the knowledges of things." Describing to Swedenborg the vast numbers of beings and worlds beyond our own, they relate to him that "they knew there were earths existing in the universe to the number of some hundred thousands and upwards" and ask, "yet what is this to the Divine, which is infinite?"

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.

Edition Originale de cette pièce fameuse que Voltaire composa pour se venger de Fréron qui, depuis la fin de 1758, ne cessait de le harceler. La première représentation de cette pièce, le 26 juillet 1760, fut un succès considérable comme en atteste le nombre d'éditions, traductions et contrefaçons qui furent immédiatement publiées. La pièce jouée par les comédiens ce jour là ne suivait pourtant pas exactement le texte original, en raison de diverses corrections faites par Voltaire au dernier moment. En particulier le nom du protagoniste Frelon, qui désignait de manière si évidente le littérateur visé par la satire, fut remplacé par celui de Wasp signifiant guêpe en anglais. Mais curieusement, ces corrections qui furent reportées dans plusieurs éditions du temps, en particulier celle d'Amsterdam (Paris) parue en 1761, semblent ensuite avoir été omises des éditions ultérieures jusqu'à celle de Beuchot (Oeuvres Complètes, 1817-1822). Intéressant exemplaire dans lequel fut inséré à l'époque de l'édition, un errata de 4 pages comportant les dernières corrections de l'auteur. Cet encart que nous n'avons pas trouvé décrit, fut sans doute spécialement composé pour compléter les exemplaires qui restaient à vendre après la première représentation. Le collationnament de l'ouvrage reflète par ailleurs les aléas de sa publication pa … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

ROUSSEAU, J.J. - [THE PLACE OF ENTERTAINMENT IN SOCIETY]
Amsterdam, M.M.Rey, 1758. 8vo. Beautiful contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands and gilt red leather title-label to richly gilt spine. All edges Minor loss to lower capital, but apart from that an absolutely beautiful copy, internally as well as externally. Very nice, clan and fresh. Printed on good paper, with good margins. Engraved title-vignette. XVIII, 264, (8) pp. ¶ The rare first edition of this important work, which inaugurated one of the most significant intellectual debates of the 18th century.The letter is Rousseau's answer to the article on the city of Geneva, which his friend d'Alembert had written for the French "Encyclopédie". In the article, d'Alembert had suggested that the citizens of Geneva establish a theatre which - so d'Alembert - would lead to a refinement of the mores and ways of the Genevans, not to mention adding a bit of sparkle to a city which he described as dreary and sad. The response by Rousseau opened up what was one of the most important intellectual polemics of the 18th century.Rousseau, a citizen of Geneva by birth, uses the article by d'Alembert as a springboard for a reflection on the place of culture in society. He relates the institution of the theatre to the question of political morality and attempts to define boundaries between the morally innocuous and corruptive forms of entertainment. The letter is permeated by a pronounced Platonism. The arguments which Rousseau advances against the theatre closely recall those advanced by Plato in the Republic against the poets. As Plato, Rousseau focuses his attention on the art … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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.
