         The History of the Parthian Empire, From the Foundation of the Monarchy by Arsaces, To its final Overthrow By Artaxerxes the Persian

      Printed for Samuel Illidge; and John Hooke, London 1728 - Title continued: Contained in a Succession of Twenty nine Kings, Compiled from the Greek and Latin Historians and other Writers, and the Chronology settled. 372 p. Full calf with raised bands. Spine cracked at both ends but gold impressing in good condition. Front hinge cracked. Heavy scuffing to bottom front cover. Decorative edges visible but worn. Much thumbing, some soiling throughout text, especially beginning and end. Last few pages including index have discolouration at centre. Thomas Lewis (1689-1749?), a controversial preacher, received his BA from Corpus Christi College, Oxford, in 1711 and was ordained in 1713. He was forced into hiding due to the libelous nature of his publication, The Scourge, in Vindication of the Church of England, 1717, in which he criticized Protestant dissenters. He continued to publish controversial writings, however, on such topics as the dangers of burying the dead in churchyards. This history concerns ancient Parthia (modern Iran) with each chapter representing a king's reign. Has margin notes and index. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         A View of Sir Isaac Newton's Philosophy.

      London: S. Palmer, 1728. London:: S. Palmer, 1728., 1728. 4to. [l], 407, [1] pp. Original blind-tooled calf, rebacked to style, with blind-tooling, raised bands, red calf gilt-stamped label; edges worn. Title vignette, 12 folding plates, decorative headpieces. Ownership signature of Dan Brent, bookplate of J. Wilcocks, Esq. Very good – choice copy. FIRST EDITION of Pemberton's work on Newton's philosophy, containing both recollections by Pemberton of Newton, and a lengthy poem about Newton by Richard Glover (1712-1785). Dedicated to Sir Robert Walpole, whose coat of arms is engraved in the title-page vignette, this volume commemorates Newton and his works, being published the year following his death. The volume is divided into three books: "Concerning the Motion of Bodies in general," "Concerning the System of the World," and "Concerning the cause of colours inherent in the light," combining the essential discoveries and works of Newton as expounded in Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica and Opticks, two of his most important works. The foundations of modern physics, astronomy, gravitation and light are represented in this compendium. "Dr. Pemberton studied under Boerhaave, prepared the Fifth London Pharmacoepoeia and was invited by Newton to edit the third (1726) edition of the Principia. This study of Newton's philosophy is interesting as being the account of a close friend. The preface contains the author's recollections of Newton, especially in his old age. There is also a poem on Sir Isaac by Richard Glover (poet and M.P., 1712-1785) written in his 16th year; the author's introduction on Newton's method of reasoning in philosophy; and a long list of subscribers." [Babson]. / Typographically this volume is important as the first book printed in any of William Caslon's roman types. Also notable are the elegant pictorial head- and tail-pieces engraved by J. Pine after J. Grison. "Pemberton's work on the mechanism of accommodation was nearly his last independent work, for he was determined to join the circle of Newton's epigones. He attempted, unsuccessfully, to approach the master through John Keill. But Richard Mead, Newton's friend and physician, showed Newton a paper in which Pemberton refuted Leibnitz' measurement of the force of moving bodies – an obsequious essay larded with references to 'the great Sir Isaac Newton.' Although the measure of the force of moving bodes was not an issue germane to Newtonian mechanics, Newton was apparently pleased with the attack on Leibnitz. He made Pemberton's acquaintance, and Pemberton sought to cement the relation by contributing another obsequious essay on muscular motion, which converted itself into a panegyric on Newtonian method, to Mead's edition of Cowper's Myotomia reformata, completed in 1723 and published in 1724" (DSB, Vol. X, pp. 500-501). PROVENANCE: Dan Brent [unknown, 18th century] – bookplate of Joseph Wilcocks, Esq. (1724–1791), the only son of Joseph Wilcocks [Sr.], the former bishop of Gloucester, and bishop of Rochester and dean of Westminster. He, the younger Wilcocks, lived for some time at Barton-Segrave, near Kettering, Northamptonshire. – DNB.

         Tabulae anatomicae

      Laurent et Thomas Pagliarini, Rome 1728 - Pleine basane du dix-neuvième siècle. Un volume in Folio (381x251 mm), xxviii-79-(1 bl.)-(10) pages et 47 planches Reliure frottée, coiffe supérieure et coins abîmés Mouillures en début d'ouvrage, mouchetures d'encre à la planche 10 et au feuillet de texte en regard, déchirure avec petit manque à la planche 33, légères rousseurs Seconde édition illustrée de 47 belles planches anatomiques et d’une grande vignette gravée par Gherrius en page de titre montrant une scène de dissection. Bartolomeo Eustachi avait fait réaliser ces gravures pour un traité anatomique destiné à concurrencer celui de Vésale ; cet écrit n’était jamais paru et les planches ne furent redécouvertes qu’en 1714 par Johannes Lancisi qui les fit publier avec des notes. Heirs of Hippocrates [324 (ed. 1714) : "With the intention of publishing an anatomical text, Eustachi had completed the drawings for his work and the plates had been engraved by 1552. The text, however, was never completed and Eustachi's notes to the plates were lost except for the eight which had been published in his lifetime. The plates were inherited by Eustachi's assistant and were eventually deposited in the Vatican Library, where they were uncovered a century and a half later and published by the papal physician, Giovanni Maria Lancisi (see No. 687 ff.), who added his elucidations and included the previously published eight plates with Eustachi's commentary. In all, there are forty-seven plates. Although from an artistic standpoint they are not as well done as the anatomical plates of Vesalius, from the point of view of anatomy they are sometimes more accurate than Vesalius'. Had the plates been published at the time they were executed, Eustachi would undoubtedly have ranked with Vesalius as a founder of modern anatomical studies. Indeed, the title page vignette illustrating a dissection, the forty-seven plates themselves, and the large initial capital letters decorated with pastoral and hunting scenes make his a splendid anatomical atlas, with few peers and fewer superiors." ] ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Nineteenth-century full sheep.

Print Bible of Pieter de Hondt, containing 212 engravings by Gerard Hoet, Arnold Houbraken and Bernard Picart with accompanying text by Jacques Saurin. 19 of the engravings are printed avant-la-lettre, which means that they are the first test pressure of the copper plates, above the volume indication on the spine is gilded 'eerste drukken' which means first prints in English. The borders of these 19 engravings are custom-made to match the size of the other pages. The entire work is printed on extra large paper and is bound by the Van Damme Bindery in three very beautiful, gold-stamped bindings. The Van Damme Bindery was active in the year 1750-1786 in the city Amsterdam. The bindery is so called because they worked for the well-known bookseller Pieter van Damme. The bindings made in this bindery belong to the best that was made in Amsterdam during the eighteenth century. The gilding used on the bindings is very diverse, in the middle of the covers a black central shield with the image of an angel, crowned by blessing hands. Surrounded by a triumphal arch with a pair of angels stamped in each others mirror image on top of it, altogether framed by broad ornamental border. The spines are decorated with an angel surrounded by tendrils between each raised band, leaving some space for the title and volume indication. The Van Damme Bindery was known to place minor and sometimes almost hidden references in the gilding, that point out to the content of the book. The tooling used for this set is an example of this. The angels and the blessing hands refer to the religious content of this work.)3 delen, (titelprent, 2, gegraveerde opdracht) 148 + 72 (2), (2) 149-280 14 + 71, (titelprent, 2, gegraveerde opdracht) 160 + 70 p.

De banden die afkomstig zijn uit deze binderij behoren tot het beste dat in Amsterdam in de achttiende eeuw werd gemaakt. De stempels die gebruikt zijn voor deze banden zijn divers, op het midden van de platten een zwart schild met een afbeelding van een engel, gekroond met twee zegenende handen. Dit wordt omringd door een triomfboog met op de bovenste hoeken twee engelen die in spiegelbeeld van elkaar zijn gestempeld, dit alles wordt omlijst door een brede decoratieve rand. De ruggen van de banden zijn bestempeld met op elk van de vlakken een engel omringd door een motief van ranken, waarbij een vak is opengelaten voor de titel en de deelaanduiding. De Van Damme binderij stond er om bekend kleine en soms verborgen verwijzingen aan te brengen in de bestempeling die verwijzen naar de inhoud van het boek. De stempels die voor deze set zijn gebruikt zijn hier een voorbeeld van. Zo verwijzen de engelen en de zegenende handen naar de geestelijke inhoud van dit werk.) Poortman, W.C. (1986).

Masson, Les Bouches-du-Rhône, biographie, 1ère partie, p. 51 ; P. Arabeyre, J.-L. Halperin et J. Krynen, Dict. historique des juristes français, p. 40 ; Dict. de biographie française, V-col. 608 ; Achard, Histoire des hommes illustres de la Provence, I-p. 539 à 543."Né à Aix, où son père était contrôleur de la Chancellerie auprès du Parlement, Barrigue de Montvalon entra dans cette compagnie en qualité de conseiller clerc en 1702. Lorsqu'éclata le conflit entre le Parlement et la Cour des Aides d'Aix en 1725, il fut envoyé à Paris pour défendre les intérêts de son corps d'origine devant le Conseil du Roi. Sa bonne connaissance du droit, connue de d'Aguesseau, aurait incité le Chancelier à le consulter avant la rédaction des ordonnances de 1731 sur les donations et de 1735 sur les testaments et les successions." (Dict. hist. des juristes français)."Il intervint en faveur du Père Girard en 1731, et fit imprimer les Motifs des juges qui ont mis le P. Jean-Baptiste Girard hors de cours et de procès. Dans l'affaire de la suppression des Jésuites, il fit partie de la minorité qui s'opposa le 5 juin 1762 à l'arrêt supprimant provisoirement les collèges et les noviciats de l'ordre. Il fut poursuivi le 30 juin pour avoir fait entendre que le réquisitoire prononcé par le procureur général dans cette occasion, était un tissu de faussetés." (Dict. de biographie française).Achard, avec sa générosité provençale, le considère comme "l'un des plus grands magistrats de ce siècle" [XVIIIe].Le Précis des ordonnances circula d'abord sous forme manuscrite à l'usage de plusieurs magistrats. En 1752, le Parlement exigea de Barrigue de Montvalon que son ouvrage fût imprimé, ce qui fut fait la même année.Ce manuscrit se présente par ordre alphabétique de "Abolition (lettres d')" à "Usure". Les pages sont divisées en deux colonnes, encadrées d'un filet à l'encre rouge ; l'une donne un résumé succinct de la matière et l'autre la date et l'article du texte législatif qui la concerne.

         Tabulae Anatomicae... -

      Roma, Pagliarini, 1728. In-folio (35,8 x 24,5 cm.). P. pergamena coeva. Antiporta allegorica con ritratto del cardinale Albani, vignetta sul frontespizio che mostra una dissezione e 47 tavole anatomiche, il tutto inciso in rame. XXVIII, 79, (11) pp.; qualche leggera fioritura, ma buon esemplare. Seconda edizione delle celebri tavole anatomiche, incise nel 1552 ma stampate per la prima volta nel 1714. Si erano infatti perse nella Biblioteca Vaticana dove vennero ritrovate agli inizi del '700 ed affidate da Clemente XI a Giov. Maria Lancisi perché le publicasse con un suo commento. Le due edizioni romane sono particolarmente pregiate per essere le uniche stampate con i rami originali: le altre (Amsterdam 1722, Leyden 1744 ecc.) sono delle copie. Choulant-Frank, Anatomical Illustration, p. 202. Wellcome II, 536. Cf. Blake 139 e Garrison & M. 391: «These plates are more accurate than the work of Vesalius; Singer was of the opinion that had they appeared in 1552 Eustachius would have ranked with Vesalius as one of the founders of modern anatomy. He discovered the Eustachian tube, the thoracic duct, the adrenals and the abducens nerve, and gave the first accurate description of the uterus. He also described the cochlea, the muscles of the throat and the origin of the optic nerves». Second edition. The copper plates remained unpublished for over 160 years until they were rediscovered in the Vatican Library by Giovanni Maria Lancisi, the papal physician, who published them with his own commentaries in 1714. Only the two Rome editions were printed from the original copper plates. With a frontispiece, a vignette on title and 47 engr. anatomical plates. A little light foxing but a good copy in contemp. vellum.

Thomas Lewis (1689-1749?), a controversial preacher, received his BA from Corpus Christi College, Oxford, in 1711 and was ordained in 1713. He was forced into hiding due to the libelous nature of his publication, The Scourge, in Vindication of the Church of England, 1717, in which he criticized Protestant dissenters. He continued to publish controversial writings, however, on such topics as the dangers of burying the dead in churchyards. This history concerns ancient Parthia (modern Iran) with each chapter representing a king's reign. Has margin notes and index.

         Oppiano Della pesca, e della caccia tradotto dal greco, e illustrato con varie annotazioni da Anton Maria Salvini al Serenissimo principe Eugenio di Savoja tenente generale cesareo.

      In Firenze: nella stamperia di Sua Altezza Reale : appresso il Tartini, e 'l Franchi, 1728 - In-8 (17 cm) XVII (1) 510 (2). Marca editoriale incisa al frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero. Piena pergamena coeva. Tagli rossi. Oppiano di Apamea (in greco: ?pp?a???, Oppianòs) (Apamea (o Pella), Seconda metà II sec. d.C. – dopo il 212 d.C.?) è stato un poeta greco antico. Oppiano, nativo di Apamea, sarebbe vissuto durante il regno del dell'imperatore Caracalla. La sua opera, comunque, è spesso accreditato al più famoso in precedenza Oppiano di Corico in Cilicia (l'attuale sud della Turchia) ed è possibile che il suo vero nome non fosse Oppiano, anche se divenne noto come tale dalla confusione dei due scrittori. Ad Oppiano è attribuito, nei manoscritti, un poema sulla caccia (Cynegetica), dedicato a Caracalla, verosimilmente dopo il 211. L'opera, di 2144 versi esametri, in quattro libri, inizia, nel libro I, dopo il topico proemio, con la descrizione del cacciatore ideale, della sua attrezzatura e dei cani da caccia. Nel libro II (di vv. 628), il poeta si cimenta con la descrizione di svariati animali cacciabili con il cane: toro, cervo, antilope, gazzella, capra e pecora, elefante, rinoceronte, pantera, gatto, scoiattolo, riccio e toporagno, scimmia. La descrizione continua nel libro III, che si apre con un secondo proemio: leone, leopardo, lince, orso, asino, cavallo, lupo e iena, tigre, cinghiale, porcospino, volpe, giraffa). Infine, nel libro IV, un proemio conclusivo apre la descrizione sulla caccia ai leoni, leopardi, orsi, gazzelle e volpi). L'opera ha una sovrabbondanza di similitudini che, spesso, assumono un tono quasi grottesco e risulta, inoltre, incompiuta, arrestandosi dopo alcune informazioni sulla sagacia delle volpi; essa fu edita per la prima volta da Aldo Manuzio nel 1517 a cura di Lorenzo Lippi, insieme all'opera sulla pesca di Oppiano di Anazarbo. Una prima traduzione italiana in versi fu quella del Salvini, pubblicata a Firenze nel 1728. Sempre a questo Oppiano si deve il poema sulla caccia con il vischio, ossia gli Ixeutikà, in 3 libri, di cui resta una parafrasi in prosa composta da un certo Eutecnio in età medievale. Dedica a Eugenio di Savoia. Ottimo esemplare. 18mo secolo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

César-Pierre Richelet was a 17th-century French grammarian and lexicographer who edited this first methodically-organized dictionary of the French language. Richelet rejected dialectic, archaic and trivial words and only included words in general use at the time, supported by literary quotations. The first edition appeared in 1680 and was ordered to be burned but was rescued by Richelet and reissued in 1681. Many later editions, including this one by Pierre Aubert in 1728, appeared after Richelet's death. An abridged version of 1759 was more popular than the original but various editions continued right into the early 19th century. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Edition Originale posthume des œuvres de Johann Philipp von Wurzelbau (1651-1725), un amateur allemand passionné d'astronomie qui devint le plus célèbre astronome de Nuremberg, sa ville natale. Commerçant en laiton de son état, il s'était intéressé à l'astronomie et aux mathématiques dès 1678 et il s'équipa d'un observatoire privé en 1682, qu'il fit agrandir dans une tour spécialement construite en 1692. Il a laissé des observations minutieuses sur certains phénomènes astronomiques, en particulier sur la course du soleil, des travaux sur les coordonnées géographiques de Nuremberg ainsi que des instruments astronomiques conçus d'après ses indications. Wurzelbau entretenait une vaste correspondance scientifique avec Leibnitz, Cassini, La Hire, Helvetius, et beaucoup d'autres savants a travers l'Europe. Un cratère de la Lune porte notamment son nom. La présente édition contient les trois ouvrages publiés par Wurzelbau de son vivant: "Stabilimentum baseos Uranies Noricae astronomico-geographicae", "Uranies Noricae basis astronomica" (avec un texte diffe rent qui paraît ici pour la première fois) et "Tabulae solares Noricae".

      Artist: Seutter Matthias ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1728 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 50 x 58; - description: Map of Swabia; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

         Love in Several Masques. A Comedy, as it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal ?

      John Watts, London 1728 - First edition. [viii], 82, [2] pp. 8vo. Fielding's First Play. First edition of the 20-year-old Fielding's first play and his second surviving publication. "Fielding's career as dramatist began auspiciously enough when, as an unknown author in his twentieth year, his first play, the comedy Love in Several Masques, was staged by Cibber at Drury Lane-an extraordinary favour due probably to the influence of Lady Mary, to whom Fielding dedicated the published version" (ODNB). In the Preface Fielding acknowledges the difficulty of competing for audiences with Gay's Beggar's Opera and Vanburgh's The Provok'd Husband. Love in Several Masques would run for only 4 nights, and Fielding would shortly depart for Holland to study, his next theatrical works not appearing until 1730. Cross III, p. 290 Disbound. First three leaves detached. In a custom gray card folder [Attributes: First Edition]
