         A Clue to the Comedy of the Non-Juror. With Some Hints of Consequence Relating to That Play. In a Letter to N. Rowe, Esq; Poet Laureat to His Majesty

      E. Curll, London 1718 - First edition. [3]-25, [3, ads] pp., lacking half-title. 8vo. Pope vs. Cibber. Rare first edition of Pope's pamphlet reply to Colley Cibber's The Non-Juror, a baldly propagandistic adaptation of Moliere's Tartuffe. Cibber's play slanders all non-jurors (such as the Catholic Alexander Pope) as outright Jacobites. Cibber alludes to Pope three times in the play and generally disparages his Catholicism. "These three allusions, not very meaningful in themselves, were probably meant to suggest that Pope's verse would be popular in homes disaffected to Hanoverian interests and to remind the audience or reader that Pope was a Catholic and, all too probably, like Dr Wolf, a Jacobite" (Guerinot, p. 70). Pope's ingenious reply twists Cibber's muddled work to suggest The Non-Juror is in fact a sly piece of pro-Jacobite propaganda.That Pope wrote a response to Cibber's play was known from Cibber's A Letter from Mr. Cibber to Mr. Pope (1742): "At this time then there came out a Pamphlet (the Title I have forgot) ? The Purport of this odd Piece of Wit was to prove, that the Non-Juror in its Design, its Characters, and almost every Scene of it, was a closely couched Jacobite Libel against the Government: And, in troth, the Charge was in some places so shrewdly maintained, that I almost liked the Jest myself; at least, it was so much above the Spirit, and Invention of the Daily-Paper Satyrists, that all the sensible Readers I met with, without Hesitation gave it to Mr. Pope." The unnamed pamphlet was commonly thought to be A Compleat Key to the Non-Juror, published by Curll in 1718. George Sherburn's "Notes on the Canon of Pope's Works, 1714-20," in The Manly Anniversary Studies in Language and Literature (Chicago, 1923), shows conclusively that the present work, the similarly titled A Clue to the Comedy of the Non-Juror, is by Pope, and the attribution was accepted by Griffith in the appendix to his bibliography of Pope.The Non-Juror was round two in the Pope-Cibber quarrel; the feud began the previous year with Pope's Three Hours after Marriage - in which, remarkably, Cibber was cast in the lead of a play designed to mock him - and culminated with Cibber as the modern epitome of dullness in Pope's 1742 Dunciad. "The Pope-Cibber quarrel was of long standing. Temperamentally incompatible, intellectually unequal, on opposite sides in politics and differing radically in their lifestyles, yet both inhabiting a tiny, emotionally overheated segment of London life in which each was acutely aware of the other's presence, they were almost bound to clash sooner or later" (ODNB).

         The true Nature of Imposture Fully Display'd in the Life of Mahomet.

      London: Printed for E. Curll and J. Hooke, and W. Mears and F. Clay,, 1718. With A Discourse annex'd for the Vindication of Christianity from this Charge. Offered to the Consideration of the Deists of the Present Age. The Seventh Edition, Corrected. Octavo (195 x 120 mm). Contemporary panelled calf, raised bands and red morocco label lettered in gilt to spine, blind-stamped fillets to each panel on covers, second concentric panel with floral blind-stamped cornerpieces, third concentric panel with serrated border roll-tooled in blind, red speckled edges. Small ink ownership inscriptions to front and rear pastedowns, bookplate to front pastedown. Slight rubbing to covers, top edge dust-soiled obscuring the red speckling, some light creasing to pages. An excellent copy. Seventh edition, first published in 1697. As the title implies, Muhammad is treated with great hostility in the book as a fraud and a tyrant. However, the main purpose of the treatise was not to act as a bulwark against the Islamic faith, which posed little threat of proselytising itself amongst the British people, but to serve as a polemic against Deism by equating Islam, still viewed with aversion by most Christians, with Deist ideas. Moreover, the latter part of the 17th century had seen greatly increased knowledge of Islam in the West, which was used by some Deists as a basis to critique Christian theology; by portraying Muhammad as an impostor, his value to the field of comparative religion was diminished. The author is careful however to ensure that his charges of imposture levelled at Muhammad cannot be applied to Christ. Though the book is appended with an impressive bibliography, research has shown that the author's claim to have read the original Arabic sources was false; George Sale was highly critical of Prideaux in his 1734 translation of the Koran.

         Importante raccolta di lettere, documenti e manoscritti autografi di Antonio Frizzi, il celebre autore della Salameide e della Memorie per la Storia di Ferrara; del cardinale Giammaria Riminaldi, grande riformatore dello Studio, della Biblioteca e del Museo di Ferrara (museo che oggi porta il suo nome); di Gaetano Frizzi, figlio di Antonio; ed altri.

      , 0 - L'archivio è così composto: 1) RIMINALDI, Giammaria Cardinale (1718-1789). 46 lettere autografe ad Antonio Frizzi, scritte fra il 1777 e il 1781. Ogni lettera è composta da un bifolio scritto sulla prima e sulla seconda pagina in elegante scrittura cancelleresca con data e firma del cardinale. Un certo numero di queste lettere è arricchito di post-scriptum di mano del porporato. Non si tratta di frasi convenzionali o d'occasione, ma di integrazioni al testo soprascritto. In questo carteggio è infatti minimo lo spazio dedicato ai convenevoli, anche se le forme più auliche non sono tralasciate; il cardinale si rivolge sempre al Frizzi con la formula di "Vostra Signoria Illustrissima". Ma il cuore di ogni lettera è Ferrara; Ferrara, una madre e una patria già nobilissima per il suo illustre passato, da onorare e accrescere con le opere dell'intelletto. Ecco quindi un costante incitamento al Frizzi, che Riminaldi stima davvero sinceramente, per portare a termine in uno sforzo comune alcune opere di primaria importanza. In primis, la stampa della Biblioteca degli scrittori ferraresi del Barotti che va per le lunghe, mancando ancora alcuni autori (ad es. le Opere di Alfonso Varano). Il cardinale tuttavia non visse abbastanza per vedere realizzato il suo desiderio. Altro argomento cardine è l'università, la cui vita viene seguita con costante attenzione e alla quale nel 1782 viene donata dal Riminaldi una quantità di libri. Per fornire alcuni esempi significativi di questo carteggio, nella lunga lettera del 20 ottobre 1781, Riminaldi si entusiasma per il proposito di Frizzi di scrivere la Storia di Ferrara. Poi spiega in dettaglio il suo progetto, già in parte realizzato, di far comporre in un pannello i ritratti di tutti gli illustri giuristi ferraresi dei secoli XIV, XV e XVI: "Faccio miniare in una gran carta che formerà un nobilissimo quadro tutte le teste delli più insigni giureconsulti antichi ital. dipinti.". Gli mancano solo tre ritratti e chiede al Frizzi di trovarli: per la "forma e qualità del vestito" gli suggerisce di rivolgersi al pittore Fr. Pellegrini. Mancano all'appello Giovanni Cefalo, Ercole Piganti ed un altro a scelta del Frizzi. "Ora che mi sono spogliato di tante mie raccolte di marmi e sculture che sono già state spedite alla volta di Ferrara. [si dedica ai ritratti che serviranno] a nobilitare ed accrescere il ns. Museo". Il pannello in questione con i 66 ritratti si trova oggi al Museo Riminaldi. Altro esempio. Nella lettera del 21 settembre 1782, Riminaldi incita il Frizzi a portare avanti la Storias di Ferrara e ritorna sulla pubblicazione della Biblioteca degli scrittori ferraresi del Barotti, arrestatasi ("ed il secondo tomo resta sepolto") nonostante le generose offerte dello scrivente. Ma è anche vero che il cardinale confessa di spendere molto in "sassi", in libri ed altre cose e, siccome l'edizione richiede "un migliaio di scudi", una dilazione non nuoce, ma non oltre l'anno 1783. Nella lettera del 4 settembre 1784 si esprime così: "Il mio trasporto per le belle arti non è inferiore a quello per la Patria". Riferisce poi dell'uscita di un giornale che abbraccia "le tre belle Germane e di più l'Incisione, la Poesia e l'Antiquaria". Sollecita infine il Frizzi a trovare abbonati per detto giornale, accludendone il manifesto (qui non presente). Ci auguriamo che questi pochi esempi bastino a suggerire la ricchezza tematica di questo carteggio e la sua notevole importanza, non solo per la città di Ferrara, ma anche per quella Respublica literarum, per quell'Europa dei dotti che è uno dei vanti del secolo dei Lumi. Giovanni Maria Riminaldi (1718-1789), compiuti gli studi di diritto canonico e civile a Ferrara, sua città natale, iniziò a Roma la carriera ecclesiastica presso la curia papale, ricoprendo importanti incarichi fino alla nomina cardinalizia nel 1785. A partire dal 1771, su impulso di papa Clemente XIV, si prodigò per riformare lo Studio di Ferrara e per dare nuovo slancio all'Università, al Muse [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         The Preface to Mr. Pope

      [London: s.n., 1718. First separate edition. 2 pp. broadsheet. Folio (12 x 6 inches). Fine, with contemporary manuscript addition to title, explaining that the Preface is "To a poem called, The Northern Star, by Aaron Hill". First separate edition. 2 pp. broadsheet. Folio (12 x 6 inches). The first separate printing of Aaron Hill's Preface in reply to Alexander Pope's criticism of his Northern-Star, a poem published in 1718 and dedicated to Peter the Great of Russia. "Hill had, apparently through Lintot, asked Pope's opinion of The Northern Star. Lintot, according to Hill, reported to him that Pope though 'Printing any thing in Praise of the Czar of Russian wou'd be receiv'd as a Satyr on the Government'" (Guerinot). Hill questions Pope's criticisim and professes he would have preferred that the poem by critiqued on the merits of its style and execution, than to be faulted for insulting the government. He criticises Pope's Windsor Forest for its forced classicism and further lashes out at the popular poetic diction of his age, in which "… all our Women are Nymphs, Angels, or Goddesses; our Men, Demi-hero's; all our Soldiers are invincible; all our Generals beyond Caesar; all our Kings like Augustus …" The broadsheet is without imprint, but may have been printed by either Berington or Morphew, printers of The Northern-Star. Hill and Pope clashed frequently, though they were not bitter enemies and did exchange letters. Later editions of Hill's poem excluded the Preface, presumably at the author's request. Rare, not in ESTC. Cf. Foxon H225 & Guerinot, p. 74 (for Hill's poem); not in ESTC

         A Clue to the Comedy of the Non-Juror. With Some Hints of Consequence Relating to That Play. In a Letter to N. Rowe, Esq; Poet Laureat to His Majesty

      London: E. Curll, 1718. First edition. [3]-25, [3, ads] pp., lacking half-title. 8vo. Contemporary Cambridge calf, spine with raised bands in six compartments, morocco lettering piece in one, the rest gilt, edges sprinkled. Front joint just starting, some toning and staining, loss to margin of Cymbalum Mundi title-page, a few leaves close trimmed, affecting a word on Pope title-page and a few page numbers and words trimmed elsewhere. First edition. [3]-25, [3, ads] pp., lacking half-title. 8vo. Pope vs. Cibber. Rare first edition of Pope's pamphlet reply to Colley Cibber's The Non-Juror, a baldly propagandistic adaptation of Moliere's Tartuffe. Cibber's play slanders all non-jurors (such as the Catholic Alexander Pope) as outright Jacobites. Cibber alludes to Pope three times in the play and generally disparages his Catholicism. "These three allusions, not very meaningful in themselves, were probably meant to suggest that Pope's verse would be popular in homes disaffected to Hanoverian interests and to remind the audience or reader that Pope was a Catholic and, all too probably, like Dr Wolf, a Jacobite" (Guerinot, p. 70). Pope's ingenious reply twists Cibber's muddled work to suggest The Non-Juror is in fact a sly piece of pro-Jacobite propaganda. That Pope wrote a response to Cibber's play was known from Cibber's A Letter from Mr. Cibber to Mr. Pope (1742): "At this time then there came out a Pamphlet (the Title I have forgot) … The Purport of this odd Piece of Wit was to prove, that the Non-Juror in its Design, its Characters, and almost every Scene of it, was a closely couched Jacobite Libel against the Government: And, in troth, the Charge was in some places so shrewdly maintained, that I almost liked the Jest myself; at least, it was so much above the Spirit, and Invention of the Daily-Paper Satyrists, that all the sensible Readers I met with, without Hesitation gave it to Mr. Pope." The unnamed pamphlet was commonly thought to be A Compleat Key to the Non-Juror, published by Curll in 1718. George Sherburn's "Notes on the Canon of Pope's Works, 1714-20," in The Manly Anniversary Studies in Language and Literature (Chicago, 1923), shows conclusively that the present work, the similarly titled A Clue to the Comedy of the Non-Juror, is by Pope, and the attribution was accepted by Griffith in the appendix to his bibliography of Pope. The Non-Juror was round two in the Pope-Cibber quarrel; the feud began the previous year with Pope's Three Hours after Marriage - in which, remarkably, Cibber was cast in the lead of a play designed to mock him - and culminated with Cibber as the modern epitome of dullness in Pope's 1742 Dunciad. "The Pope-Cibber quarrel was of long standing. Temperamentally incompatible, intellectually unequal, on opposite sides in politics and differing radically in their lifestyles, yet both inhabiting a tiny, emotionally overheated segment of London life in which each was acutely aware of the other's presence, they were almost bound to clash sooner or later" (ODNB).

         Memoires du Cardinal de Retz

      S.n. 1718 - - S.n., Amsterdam 1718, In-16 (8,5x14,7cm), (14) 428pp. et (2) 407pp. et (2) 420pp., 3 volumes reliés. - Seconde édition. Contrefaçon rare de la première édition d'une rareté insigne parue à Nancy en 1717. Cette édition sera également donnée à Cologne chez David Roger, qui semble être un éditeur fictif. Pages de titre en rouge et noir, contrairement à celle de Cologne. On notera que les lacunes des éditions anciennes des Mémoires n'ont jamais été comblées avant 1836 ; elles étaient causées d'une part par des passages raturés et d'autre part par des feuillets arrachés au manuscrit. Reliures en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs jansénistes. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Les dos sont plus foncés. Frottements. Un minuscule trou de vers en queue du tome I, ainsi que sur le mors supérieur en tête. Bon exemplaire. Paul de Gondi rédige ses mémoires à la demande de ses amis, lors de son exil, vers l'âge de soixante ans (vers 1675 - 1677), et compose l'autobiographie d'un homme politique dans une époque de guerre civile, la Fronde. Non content d'être un témoignage historique de tout premier plan, l'oeuvre figure parmi les monuments littéraires du XVIIIe et des mémoires et autres autobiographies ; par son style alerte, précis, celui d'un homme d'action et d'intrigues à l'intelligence remarquable et à l'ambition politique toujours en éveil (toujours prêt à s'allier à qui l'a trahi la veille). Ses mémoires constitueront une revanche et son dernier resssort d'ambition. Ex libris manuscrit en bas de la page de titre : A. Germain, curé de Reilhac. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Second edition. A rare counterfeit of the first edition of a rare rarity that appeared in Nancy in 1717. This edition will also be given in Cologne at David Roger, who seems to be a fictional publisher. Title pages in red and black. Bindings in full brown contemporary brown. Back to Jansenist nerves. Title and tomato pieces in red morocco. The backs are darker. Friction. A tiny hole of worms at the tail of volume I, as well as on the upper bit at the top. Good copy. Paul de Gondi wrote his memoirs at the request of his friends, at the time of his exile, about the age of sixty (about 1675 - 1677), and composed the autobiography of a politician in a contemporary of civil war. Sling. Not content to be a historical testimony of the foremost, the work is among the literary monuments of the eighteenth and memoirs and other autobiographies; by his precise alert style, that of a man of action and intrigues of remarkable intelligence and political ambition always on the alert (always ready to ally himself with those who had betrayed him the day before). His memoirs will constitute a revenge and his last spring of ambition. Ex libris handwritten at the bottom of the title page: A. Germain, parish priest of Reilhac.

Provenance: Joze Nogueira Carvalho da Fonseca (ink inscription to verso of frontispiece). An outstanding, completely untouched copy. ---- FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE EARLIEST AND MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS ON GUNSMITHING AND OF GREAT RARITY. Espingarda perfeyta (The perfect gun) is the most remarkable treatise on this subject of it's period. "Written in the closing years of the 17th century in Lisbon, it describes the work of three brothers, leading gunsmiths of their day, two of whom signed the book and the third of which remains anonymous. As it was highly unusual to write about the closely guarded secrets of the art, they signed it using anagrams. The three brothers were Jose Francisco, Joao Rodrigues, and Manoel Antonio. Had these three been anxious for publicity, they would hardly have disguised their names. These men were obviously so dedicated to their craft, and so anxious to produce the most perfect gun that they were prepared to risk the enmity of their fellow artisans by revealing the secrets of the trade. They also wished to record for posterity, and the benefit of the less skillful their many discoveries. That there was support for their venture from the highest levels is clearly seen by the magnificent title page. John V of Portugal (1689-1750) was a generous patron of the arts and industry during his reign. He used the enormous royal treasury, swollen from the diamond, spice, and gold trade of Portugal's colonies, to bring to Portugal the brilliance of Europe's enlightenment courts. Unfortunately, spectacular mismanagement by his clerical administrators and the catastrophic Lisbon earthquake of 1755 led to an irresistible decline in Portugal's fortunes." (Dis Pater, The Demesne of Dis Pater, Cap. IV, Espiranga Perfeyta, or Ye Perfect Gun, online resources, 2000). COPAC records but six copies, with four located in the United States (Harard Univ.; Yale Univ., Indiana Univ., NY Metropolitan Museum of Arts), one in the British Library and another in Berlin.

He produced John Elphinstone's map of Scotland (1746), Geographia Scotiae (1749), and The Small English Atlas (1749) with Thomas Jefferys. The Large English Atlas (with Bowen 1749?60) was a serious attempt to cover England at large scale. In 1755 Kitchin engraved the Mitchell Map map of North AmericaHe worked for London Magazine. He produced 170 maps for London Magazine (1747?83). Kitchin was the head hydrographer for the King of England. Kitchin frequently stole the works of other cartographers, which is one reason why he created so much work as a cartographer. His book, The Present State of the West-Indies: Containing an Accurate Description of What Parts Are Possessed by the Several Powers in Europe was published in 1778 by R. Baldwin in London.

"The Opticks of 1704–6, generalizing the message of the Principia, issued a manifesto of his new programme. The mechanical philosophy with its imagined mechanisms of imagined particles was out. Forces mathematically defined, explaining observed motions in a quantitatively precise manner, formed the centrepiece of Newtonian science. Modern science has shaped itself accordingly. The same Opticks also contained at the end the first full papers in mathematics that Newton made public" (ODNB). The number of queries in this edition was increased to 31, including the "celebrated Query No. 28 on the nature of light". This copy with errata corrected in a contemporary hand on 23 pages.

         Descriptions et usages de plusieurs nouveaux microscopes, tant simples que composez.

      Paris: Collombat. 1718. Small quarto. Contemporary half calf; pp. [x] + 78 + 96 + [v, contents], 34 plates, engraved headpieces; binding a little rubbed, stain to pp. 7-8, otherwise very good. Provenance: with ownership signature of Lorenz Oken to front pastedown. Oken (1779 - 1851) was a leading German naturalist who, inspired by Kant and Goethe as much as by natural science, conceived of nature as a whole organism rather than a collection of discrete components, much in the manner of Humboldt. He produced his own system of animal classification based on the sophistication of the sense organs and noted many of the homologies between human and animal physiologies that, later in the nineteenth century, made clear the evolutionary origins of man. Also with the bookplates of W.H. van Seters, Dutch biliophile and writer, and Librarie Alain Brieux, the well-known Paris bookseller, to the front pastedown and an oval inkstamp bearing the word 'Geneve' to ffep. First edition. Louis Joblot (1645-1723) is now overshadowed by his contemporary Leeuwenhoek but was an equally innovative scientist. In this volume, his landmark work and the first French book on microscopical research, he presents his own technical improvements to the microscope, his observations of protozoa and, crucially, his rejection of spontaneous generation. He observed many animalcules for the first time, classifiying them according to shape, and was the leading discoverer of infusoria until 1773, making this book an important document of early microbiology.
