[Fielding, Sarah] Xenophon
Bath: Printed by C. Pope...and sold by A. Millar..., 1762. Bath: Printed by C. Pope...and sold by A. Millar... 1762 First edition. Early nineteenth-century calf over marbled boards, rubbed. . Octavo. Front joint cracking, but sound. Old ownership inscription on title-page, partially cropped at top margin in the process of binding. A very good copy. Sarah Fielding (1710-68) was the sister of Henry Fielding and a friend of Samuel Richardson and of Jane Collier. She was the author of several novels, the best-known of which is The Adventures of David Simple, a Moral Romance (1744). She was " of the earliest of the English novelists to explore with close attention varying states of feeling and the roots of motive" (Oxford Companion to English Literature). She was a woman of considerable learning, and her translation of Xenophon is highly regarded. The D.N.B. notes that it includes some notes and possibly a revision by James Harris of Salisbury (the author of Hermes). It was published by subscription at Bath, where Fielding spent her final years. In a note to the preface, Fielding defends her use of the word "Memoir" for the title of the book, citing the entry in Johnson's Dictionary and Elizabeth Carter's use of the word (presumably in her translation of Epictetus).

Parigi (1762) - Lattré Graveur et Jean Thomas Herissant. 1 ff bb, 6 pp nn (con testo inciso al recto), 1 tavola a doppia pagina incisa in rame, 36 carte geografiche a doppia pagina incise in rame con i contorni colorati all'epoca, 1 carta p.v.r. datata 1837 (di Pierre Lapie) relativa all'Oceania, 1 ff bb Bella legatura coeva in mezza pelle con dorature al dorso e titolo in oro su tassello di pelle rossa. Segni di usura ai bordi ed agli angoli. Carte di guardia e tagli superbamente marmorizzati. Due carte con strappi anticamente restaurati al verso; una macchia di inchiostro molto sbiadita sul cartiglio della carta relativa al "Royaume de France", qualche piccola macchiolina qua e là, tracce di sporco su alcune carte. In generale, molto buono lo stato di conservazione. Prima edizione di questo importante atlante compilato grazie al contributo di famosi cartografi del 18° secolo. Bonne Rigobert nel 1773 divenne cartografo del re di Francia. Il suo contributo segnò una svolta nella cartografia moderna: l'impostazione del suo lavoro fu più pratica e dettagliata rispetto a quella per certi versi decorativa presente nelle opere del seicento e dei primi anni del settecento. Jean Janvier (1716 circa - 1782) fu editore di carte generali assieme al Longchamps. Giovanni Antonio Rizzi Zannoni (1736 - 1814) fu un appassionato cartografo, geografo e viaggiatore. È particolarmente famoso per il suo "Atlante geografico del regno di Napoli" (1812) composto di ben 32 fogli. Cfr.: "A list of geographical atlases in the Library of Congress", P. L. Phillips, Washington (1909), Col. II, n. 629

[ Goldsmith, Oliver]
London: Printed for J. Newbery, 1762. Two volumes. vi[ie vii],[1],286;[2],238,[16]pp. 12mo. Full brown crushed levant, raised bands, gilt inner dentelles, t.e.g., by Ramage. Two bookplates in each volume, as well as discoloration from a third on versos of binder's free endsheets, slight wear at crown of one spine and patch of rubbing across one spine compartment, fore-tips a bit rubbed, else a very good set. First edition, the issue with the integral title - another issue features cancel titles with 'Printed for the Author' in the imprint. In this set, page vii in the first volume is numbered 'vi' rather than 'v' as in other sets. The 'i' in the catchword on II:11 is out of alignment, not dropped. Goldsmith's letters appeared anonymously in THE PUBLIC LEDGER beginning in late January of 1760, and concluded in August of the following year. Their considerable popularity, and their publication in book form, were significant factors in Goldsmith's early ascent from Grub Street to what Scott describes as "the freedom of the precincts of the inner sanctuary of letters."

[Book of Common Prayer]
Cambridge: Printed by Joseph Bentham Printer to the University .., 1762. Not paginated. [¶2],A-2Z4,*A-*C4. Folio (signed in 4s). 40 x 25cm. Contemporary mottled calf, six raised bands, gilt monogram device of King George III in each spine compartment and in the extreme corners of the boards within a triple-ruled border, four ribbon ties at fore-edge (one nearly detached, but otherwise intact), a.e.g. Joints cracking, but cords sound, early amateurish repairs to spine ends and fore- corners, edgeworn, faint tidemark at extreme lower fore-corners of 3Z4 to end, occasional marginal smudges, but otherwise very good. An uncommon variant of Bentham's folio printing of 1762, with the separately signed Articles at the end concluding with *C4. ESTC locates but one copy of this variant (Queen's College, Oxford), as opposed to a dozen with the final leaf being 3A2. This copy has an interesting provenance: it is inscribed in the upper margin of the title: "GH Governor of Minorca 1766." After an active and successful military career George Howard (1718-1796), sat in the House of Commons for Lostwithiel from 1761 until 1766, when he was appointed Governor of Minorca -- the British had reclaimed the island in 1763 as a consequence of the Treaty of Paris. After holding the post for two years, he returned to political and military pursuits and continued to flourish. His second marriage, in May 1776, was to Elizabeth of the Beckford family. Given the Royal ornamentation of the binding, and the nature of the inscription, it seems probable that this represents a Royal gift to Howard, if no … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kollar, Adam Frantisek.
Wien. Trattner.1762. 25 x 20,5 cm. 12 Bll., 326 S., 16 Bll. Halbleder d. Zeit. Leicht berieb.; Später noch mal neu eingebunden. Innen Papier leicht gebräunt, fast fleckenfreies Exemplar. Lateinische Sprache. Adam František Kollár, deutsch auch Adam Franz Kollár (* 17. April 1718 in Terchová, Königreich Ungarn, heute Slowakei; † 10. Juli 1783 in Wien) war ein slowakischer Schriftsteller, Geschichtswissenschaftler und Hofbibliothekar; er gehörte dem niederen Adel an. Kollár war Hofberater der Königin Maria Theresia. Er gilt als Persönlichkeit der Aufklärung und Verfechter der absoluten Monarchie. Daneben wird ihm die Schöpfung des Begriffs Ethnologie und dessen Definition zugeschrieben. Kollár wurde in die Familie eines Edelmanns im Ort Terchová, etwa 25 km östlich von Sillein geboren. Er besuchte eine Jesuiten-Schule in Neusohl und später ein Gymnasium in Schemnitz. Anschließend studierte er an der Universität Tyrnau (1734–36), wo er auch Mitglied der Gesellschaft Jesu wurde. 1748 schloss sein Theologiestudium an der Universität Wien ab; nach der Promotion verließ er die Gesellschaft Jesu. Während seines Studiums befasste er sich mit zahlreichen Sprachen. So beherrschte Kollár neben dem Slowakischen, seiner Muttersprache, auch Deutsch, Ungarisch, Französisch und Hebräisch sowie klassische (Latein, Altgriechisch) und orientalische (Türkisch, Persisch) Sprachen. Noch während seines Studiums begann seine Karriere als Professor in Liptau-Sankt Nikolaus. Nach Studienabschluss wurde er Skriptor in der K.u.k. Hofbibliothek zu Wien. Schon ein Jahr später avancierte er zum zweiten … [Click Below for Full Description]

excudebat Thomas Alphanus, 1762. Due volumi di cm. 36, pp. (8) 420; (8) 421-872. Primo frontespizio in rosso e nero. Leg. coeva in piena perg. rigida con titoli in oro al dorso. Alone all'angolo basso dei due volumi, marginali tracce d'umidità, fioriture e bruniture sparse, qualche trascurabili segno di tarlo limitato al margine di poche cc. Nel complesso esemplare discreto e genuino. Hugues Doneau (1527-91), celebre giureconsulto francese, fu uno dei maggiori rappresentanti della scuola culta; insegnò a Tolosa, Ginevra, Heidelberg, Leida ed Altdorf. Doneau (o Donello), schematicamente e frettolosamente accostato a Cuiacio ed agli esponenti fautori del metodo esegetico finalizzato alla storicizzazione del diritto romano, si distingue invece da questi per una forte impronta sistematica che lo colloca in un contesto di minore discontinuità rispetto al mos italicus ed alla tradizione di diritto comune. Quest'edizione raccoglie tutte le lecturae dell'A. sopra il Codice giustinianeo. Non comune e ricercato. Cfr. Kvk; non in Sapori. .

Er polemisiert heftig gegen die im 18. Jh. praktizierte „positive“ Erziehung, die eine zu frühe Entfaltung der Intelligenz begünstige und das Kind zu früh über seine Pflichten als Erwachsener aufkläre“ (KNLL 14, S. 390). – Einbände beschabt u. bestoßen, Besitzvermerk auf Vorsatz, teilweise etwas unsauber beschnitten; Bd 1 mit montiertem Bildnis Rousseaus, durchgehend gebräunt, bis zur Hälfte mit Feuchtigkeitsrand, die erste Seite mit kleinem Einriß, einige schwache Bleistiftanstreichungen; Bd 2 gering gebräunt u. vereinzelt leicht stockfleckig, wenige Blatt am Ende mit schmalem schwachen Feuchtigkeitsrand.
