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.

1758. London, 1758. Rare. Boards Emblazoned with Large Gilt Arms of the British East India Company [British East India Company]. Charter of the 8th of January, 1753; Being the Twenty-Sixth of King George the Second; Establishing Courts of Justice, And a Military Force in the East Indies [caption title]. [London, c. 1758]. 50 pp. Folio (14-1/4" x 9-1/2"). Contemporary calf, rebacked retaining existing spine, gilt fillets to board edges, large gilt arms of the British East India Company to centers of boards, raised bands and lettering piece (reading "Charter. 1783") to spine, spine ends rapaired, marbled endpapers. Light rubbing and a few minor stains and shallow scuffs to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, some chipping to spine ends, boards just beginning to separate, but secure. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, light soiling to upper margins of a few leaves. $5,000. * The Honourable East India Company, or British East India Company, was established in 1600 as a trading company. It became the engine that drove the expansion of the British Empire into India and other parts of Southeast Asia.

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.

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.

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.
