"For the first hundred years or more of its existence the Pilgrim's Progress was read only among the dissenters, the lower and middle classes; the the many early editions, like the first [of 1678], were poorly printed. Now it is universally known and loved, and the parable of salvation is accepted by all denominations. Its language has become common to all, and the life of Bunyan has become the hope of all imprisoned for conscience' sake. His prose style has profoundly affected later writers."

      Printed by B. Collins, for F. Newbery, Salisbury 1766 - Two volumes. [4],214,[2 (blank)];[2],223,[1]pp. 12mo. Contemporary calf, rebacked to style with the original backstrips laid down. Contemporary bookplate in first volume (Walbancke); heavy offsetting from calf turn- ins to margins of endsheets, prelims and terminal leaves, upper quarter portion of binder's free endsheet in second volume torn away, a few signatures starting slightly, but a good set. Enclosed in a full morocco solander case by Riviere. First edition. The edition was burdened with a number of typographic errors or omissions (such as the omission of the word 'husband' in the first line of I:15, the misspelling 'Waekcfield' in the headline of II:95, etc), the most significant of which have been sorted into four variants. This set is of the second variant, with no catchword on I:213, with the corrected catchword on II:39, and page 159 correctly numbered. This edition printed in Salisbury precedes the first London printing by slightly over two months, although publication was some four years after the rights to the manuscript were sold to the publisher by Samuel Johnson on Goldsmith's behalf. The delay has been ascribed, variously, to Goldsmith's revisions, or to the publishers' reticence to commit to printing the work until Goldsmith had established a reputation. Over the next century, it became one of the most popular novels of its generation. GROLIER ENGLISH HUNDRED 53. ROTHSCHILD 1028. SCOTT 173ff. ESTC T146176. BLOCK, p.89. NCBEL II:1197.

      Paris. 1766. - 51pp. Large folio. Stitched. Minor soiling and foxing. Very good. Defense of the Comte de Lally for his actions in India during the Seven Years' War. This is one of two versions authored by him. Lally, head of the French expedition to India, reached Pondichery in 1758. Though capable, he was incredibly unpopular and fell into a series of events which proved fatal to his career and his person. He was unsuccessful in the Siege of Madras, beaten at the Battle of Wandiwash, and eventually capitulated from the siege of Pondichery. Taken prisoner by the British, he returned to France on parole and was imprisoned for two years before being put on trial and executed. This is his last defence, published shortly thereafter or perhaps immediately preceding - a publisher's note is dated April 14 and Lally was executed May 6th.

        Del fulmine, e della sicura maniera di evitarne gli effetti dialoghi tre di Carlo Viacinna a Matteo Allagia

      per Federico Agnelli, 1766. Cm. 22, pp. 1 c.b. (6), clvi (1) + 1 c.b. Una nota ms. coeva posta al frontespizio attribuisce l'opera ad Anastasio Cavallo. Bross. coeva in carta decorata con motivi floreali. Mancanze di carta al dorso, perlatro esemplare fresco e marginoso. In barbe. Atanasio Cavalli (1717 ca. - 1798 ca.), di Asti, nel 1764, anno pubblicò le Lettere di Filalete accademico libero. Frate con il nome di Atanasio di S. Luigi insegnò Teologia in un convento carmelitano di Torino. Si occupò dello studio dello spiritismo e dell'occultismo e pubblicò un libro sull'argomento: Delle apparizioni ed operazioni de' Spiriti. La sua attività scientifica si basò soprattutto sulle osservazioni astronomiche, meteorologiche e in genere naturalistiche. Questo interessantissimo trattato dedicato ai fulmini si colloca nell'ambito di questa particolare inclinazione. Sempre attraverso i torchi di Agnelli Cavalli pubblicò nel 1769 un'opera dedicata al Vesuvio. Nel 1770 chiese ed ottenne la secolarizzazione e si trasferì a Roma dove fu docente di fisica e poi di filosofia morale all'università gregoriana. Rarissima edizione originale. Cfr. Iccu che però attribuisce l'opera a Carlo Viacinna..

      Londres [i.e Yverdon]: [F.-B. de Félice],, 1766. Duodecimo (177 x 105 mm). Contemporary marbled wrappers, pages uncut. Contemporary ink notation on interior of front cover. Covers lightly marked, some light chipping to covers and a few pages, a few small ink marks on title page, loss to corner of p. 57 not affecting text, offset on final blank. Hume's account of his dispute with Rousseau was first published in Paris in October 1766. Two pirated editions followed later that year, the first of which was printed in London, the second of which, this edition, was printed in Yverdon and included extended commentary which had not been present in the previous editions. The work consists of "correspondence between Hume and Rousseau, with connecting narrative passages by Hume. Rousseau had maligned him so deeply, and the city gossips had filled out the tale so apocryphally, that Hume was stung into adopting this method of clearing himself. His friends, both English and French, at first advised against publication, but soon d'Alembert and his circle changed their minds and urged it." (Jessop). The book is rare in any state, and especially so in uncut state.

        The Surprising Life and Death of Doctor John Faustus.

      London: For H.W.,, 1766. To which is now added, The Necromancer, or, Harlequin Doctor Faustus; As Performed at the Theatre Royal in Covent-Garden. Truly translated from the original Copies. Duodecimo (144 x 86 mm), pp. 131, [1] bl. Contemporary "school" cloth, spine expertly repaired. Old stain, probably tallow, affecting the lower outer portion of the first dozen leaves, paper still sound, fore-edge margin a little close, a good copy. Apparently the first edition under this title (adding "Surprising"), although this immortal story appeared in English at last as early as 1592, as The Historie of the damnable Life, and deserved Death of Doctor John Faustus (where it is described as "Newly imprinted"), an edition which is often called The English Faust Book. The prose narrative of Faustus's adventures here gives many details omitted from Christopher Marlowe's play. Helen of Troy, for example, is reported to have borne him a son. The Necromancer, or Harlequin Doctor Faustus, was first performed in late 1723 and printed in various iterations in 1724. It was one of several successful musical entertainments in which John Rich (1692–1761), under the stage name Lun, performed the mute role of Harlequin. The addenda here, occupying the last 10 pages, is a truncated version, with two scenes set in a study and "The Doctor's School of Magick" respectively. This edition is institutionally rare, with three locations only in ESTC: University of Hull, Pierpont Morgan, and Yale.
