         On Poetry: a Rapsody

      J. Huggonson, [London] Printed at Dublin, and Re-printed at London 1733 - First edition. Engraved device on title and headpiece. 28 pp. Folio. 'All Human Race wou'd fain be Wits, / And Millions miss, for one that hits'. First edition of this satire on Grub Street hacks which culminates in an attack on Sir Robert Walpole. Despite the imprint, there is no known Dublin edition. Swift's friend, the poet Mary Barber, conveyed the manuscript, along with "Epistle to a Lady" and others, to Matthew Pilkington, who later betrayed Swift's authorship. The Walpole administration considered arresting Swift for libel for lines in this and the "Epistle" but refrained, "upon being told that an army of no less than ten thousand men would be necessary for the arrest of the Dean of Ireland." The Hayward copy (lent by Harold Williams) contains manuscript verses recorded by Sir Walter Scott that "ought to have been inserted ? if it had been safe to print them" Foxon S888; Hayward 153; Rogers 869; Rothschild 2147; Teerink 741; Williams II, 639 In later drab wrappers. Title and final leaf soiled, foxed and frayed at edges, with short repaired tears, marginal soiling to first few text leaves, "11 Jany. 1733/4" on title-page in contemporary hand (published 31 December 1733 according to Foxon), and correction in ink to misprint, p. 4, l. 5 Engraved device on title and headpiece. 28 pp. Folio [Attributes: First Edition]

         The Impertinent, or a Visit to the Court. A Satyr. By an Eminent Hand

      John Wileord [i.e Wilford], London 1733 - First edition. [3]-16 pp., lacking half-title. 4to. Imitation of Horace by Way of Donne. First edition of one of the rarest of Pope's works, an imitation of Donne's Satyre IV (c. 1597), itself a reworking of Horce's Satire 1.9 ("Ibam forte via sacra"). In Horace's poem the speaker is pestered by a man petitioning favors and can only break free when the man's adversary appears; both Pope and Donne change the location to the court. Pope's version contains a pointed attack on Walpole and was published anonymously and with the printer's name perhaps deliberately changed from Wilford to Wileord. Pope later acknowledged authorship by including the poem in his 1735 Works under the title "Fourth Satire of Dr. John Donne," and several unauthorized editions followed in 1737. The half-title is missing in most, though not all, recorded copies; Griffith notes a half-title is allowed for by the pagination, though it was lacking in both copies he cites. A clean, wide-margined copy. ESTC T5678; Foxon P898; Griffith 317; Keynes, Donne 112n Modern half calf and marbled boards, morocco title label on front cover [3]-16 pp., lacking half-title. 4to [Attributes: First Edition]

         Theatro Moral de la Vida Humana, en cien emblemas, con el Enchiridion de Epicteto y la Tabla de Cebes, Filosofo Platonico.

      En Amberes, por la Viuda de Henrico Verdussen, 1733. - 3 parties en 1 volume in-folio. 10ff. 207pp. + 27pp. + 4ff. 50pp. 1f. Plein veau raciné, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, tranches rouges, guirlandes dorées à motifs floraux entourant les plats (fraiche reliure de l'époque). Très belle impression anversoise, sur grand papier, de ce fameux livre d'emblèmes, par le peintre flamand Otto van Veen (1557-1629). Le "Theatro Moral de la Vida Humana" est une oeuvre chorale qui s'articule autour de l'ouvrage "Quinti Horati Flacci Emblemata" (1607), recueil de planches gravées par van Veen pour illustrer des fragments d'Horace choisis par ses soins. L'oeuvre originelle fut enrichie de traductions de notices du français Martin le Roy de Gomberville, ainsi que du "Tableau" de Cébès de Thèbes et du "Manuel" d'Epictète. Selon Palau, on doit probablement au traducteur espagnol d'Epictète le fantastique proême anonyme qui précède l'oeuvre de van Veen, et qui contient "des pages parmi les plus délicieuses écrites en langue castillane" (Palau), savoureuses confessions autobiographiques sur la vie de cour au 17e siècle. Chefs d'oeuvre du baroque flamand, chacune des cent superbes planches est accompagnée d'explications en prose, suivies de quelques vers latins d'Horace ou d'autres, en castillan. Beau portrait gravé de van Veen en frontispice. Page de titre imprimée à l'encre rouge et noire, avec vignette gravée. Initiales ornées à chaque page d'emblème. Une dizaine de planches furent autrefois coloriées. Un feuillet déchiré et réparé, sans manque. Spectaculaire ouvrage illustré, dans sa fraiche reliure de l'époque. Palau, 358578.

         The Life and Genuine Character of Doctor Swift. Written by Himself

      [Benjamin Motte for] J. Roberts, London 1733 - First edition. Engraved device on title, engraved headpieces. 19, [1] pp., with half-title. Folio. "Nearly as much mystification surrounds the publication of the poems as its authorship" (Foxon)"This poem is included in the Swift canon, partly on the evidence of Mrs. Letitia Pilkington who, in her Memoirs, claimed that her husband, Matthew Pilkington, had negotiated its publication on Swift's behalf, and partly on internal evidence. Swift himself denied authorship ?" (Rothschild). The poem bears resemblance to Verses on the Death of Dr. Swift (1739), in which Swift similarly treats Rochefoucauld's maxim ("He says, 'Whenever Fortune sends / Disaster, to our Dearest Friends, / Although, we outwardly may Grieve, / We oft, are Laughing in our Sleeve"). With a dedication by the printer - signing as "L.M." - to Alexander Pope, whom Foxon suggests as a possible author of the poem. Foxon S884; Teerink 727; Rogers 844; Rothschild 2143; Williams II, p. 541 Modern marbled wrappers. Leaves extended at inner margins, light creasing, soiling to verso of final leaf Engraved device on title, engraved headpieces. 19, [1] pp., with half-title. Folio [Attributes: First Edition]

         OPERA

      John Pine 1733-37, London - 228 x146 mm. (9 x 5 3/4"). Two volumes. Edited by John Pine. Second Issue (with "potest" error on p. 108 of volume II). FINE CONTEMPORARY FRENCH CRIMSON CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, covers with triple-fillet border, smooth spines in compartments with central floral sprig surrounded by small tools, volute cornerpieces, two dark green morocco labels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. ENGRAVED THROUGHOUT, THE TEXT EMBELLISHED WITH LAVISH ROCOCO DECORATION including headpieces and tailpieces, initials, and numerous vignettes and large illustrations, 10 of them full-page. With the subscriber list. Cohen-de Ricci 497; Rothschild 1548; Schweiger II, 408; Dibdin II, 108; Brueggemann, p. 585; Graesse III, 354; Brunet III, 320. Faint soiling and spotting to covers, otherwise A SUPERB SET, clean, bright, and fresh internally, and in virtually unworn bindings. This is an engraved book of celebrated beauty, offered here in most attractive decorative morocco and in a state of preservation that far exceeds even the most sanguine expectations. Ray says that the book "marks a high point of Augustan taste" and adds that "Pine's complete command of his craft makes this the most elegant" of 18th century English books in which text and illustrations are entirely engraved. Brunet says that the book is remarkable for the elegance of its decoration and insists that it is more textually correct than generally recognized. The elegant binding is unsigned, but is clearly the work of a first-rate French workshop, executed with finesse using beautiful materials and considerable taste. The condition of our two volumes can only be described as exceptional, with gilt nearly as bright as the day it was applied. Pine's Horace is not especially rare, but copies like the present one, with its wide margins and wonderful contemporary binding, are more and more difficult to obtain.

         TAFEREEL, OF BESCHRYVING VAN DEN PRACHTIGEN TEMPEL DEN ZANG-GODINNEN

      Amsterdam: Zacharias Chatelain, 1733. FIRST EDITION IN DUTCH. This Dutch retelling of classical myths from Ovid and other Roman authors is beautifully illustrated by the man Ray calls "the outstanding professional illustrator of the first third of the eighteenth century"; it is offered in a very pleasing binding incorporating tools from two Middelburg binders who apparently had a close working relationship. Jan Storm van Leeuwen suggests that Mandelgreen, who was not Dutch by birth, began his career in Middelburg with the Rosette Roll Bindery before going on to create bindings that were "among the most beautiful made in the Netherlands during the eighteenth century." Mandelgreen (d. 1758) was originally from Sweden, and Storm van Leeuwen believes he may have come to Holland via England, as his bindings show a definite English influence. The binding here is similar to those by the Rosette Roll Bindery pictured in Storm van Leeuwen L884 and fig. 237, large folio bindings that are "most elaborate, with varied marbling, three wide frames, corner tooling, and a large central block." Storm van Leeuwen notes that the bindery and Mandelgreen had a number of tools in common, and rolls associated with both workshops appear on our covers. Taught by his father, Etienne, our artist Picart (1673-1733) distinguished himself both as designer and engraver, executing a variety of different kinds of plates, mostly for books, in Paris and then Amsterdam. For this "Temple of the Muses" Picart was inspired by a "Temple des Muses" of 1655 with designs by Diepenbecke. The 60 plates illustrate ancient myths, the twisting figures framed by often-stormy landscapes, the scenes enclosed by lovely rococo borders that are superb examples of the style. This was one of Picart's final projects, and in it he combines the baroque style in which he was trained with elements from the emerging rococo school. Former owner Victor von Stedingk was apparently the distinguished military figure by that name (born in Stockholm in 1751 and died there in 1823) who was also a bibliophile with a library featuring fine bindings.. 472 x 302 mm. (18 1/2 x 11 3/4"). 4 p.l., XXVI, [2], 158, [4] pp. FIRST EDITION IN DUTCH. HANDSOME CONTEMPORARY DUTCH MOTTLED PANELLED CALF, GILT, BY THE ROSETTE ROLL BINDERY AND SUENONIUS MANDELGREEN, covers with gilt roll frames and large oblique fleurons at corners, central lozenge, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central star medallion enclosed by drawer handles and other ornaments, curling cornerpieces, maroon morocco label (short portions of joints apparently--and, if so, very expertly--repaired at top and bottom). Engraved title within architectural border, engraved vignette on letterpress title, and 60 FINE ENGRAVED PLATES BY PICART illustrating tales from classical mythology, each plate with captions in French, English, German, and Dutch. Front pastedown with bookplate of Swedish collector Victor von Stedingk; verso of half title with engraved armorial bookplate of Phs. Van Yypersele. Cohen-de Ricci 531; Brunet V, 696. For the binding: J. Storm van Leeuwen IIB, Rosette Roll Bindery and S. Mandelgreen (Middelburg): p. 597, roll II and p. 623, roll X. Joints a bit flaked and with short, thin cracks at top and bottom (not affecting firmness), tiny chip to tail of spine and small chip out of label, corners somewhat rubbed, but the impressive binding nevertheless in extremely agreeable condition, the covers virtually unblemished, and the gilt still very bright. Expert paper restoration adding a new two-inch strip across the top, well away from any letterpress, text leaves with occasional minor foxing and frequently a little browned, otherwise fine internally with wide margins, the plates (on superior paper stock) clean and bright, with rich impressions.

Former owner Victor von Stedingk was apparently the distinguished military figure by that name (born in Stockholm in 1751 and died there in 1823) who was also a bibliophile with a library featuring fine bindings.

         OPERA

      London: John Pine, 1733-37. Second Issue (with "potest" error on p. 108 of volume II). This is an engraved book of celebrated beauty, offered here in most attractive decorative morocco and in a state of preservation that far exceeds even the most sanguine expectations. Ray says that the book "marks a high point of Augustan taste" and adds that "Pine's complete command of his craft makes this the most elegant" of 18th century English books in which text and illustrations are entirely engraved. Brunet says that the book is remarkable for the elegance of its decoration and insists that it is more textually correct than generally recognized. The elegant binding is unsigned, but is clearly the work of a first-rate French workshop, executed with finesse using beautiful materials and considerable taste. The condition of our two volumes can only be described as exceptional, with gilt nearly as bright as the day it was applied. Pine's Horace is not especially rare, but copies like the present one, with its wide margins and wonderful contemporary binding, are more and more difficult to obtain.. 228 x146 mm. (9 x 5 3/4").

XIXth c. parchement quarter binding with marbred paper. VG+. "8º, (160x107mm.); [4], 161, [1] p.; sign.: á2, A6, B-H8, I4, K-M2, N4, O6 [O6 blanck]; sphere printer mark in title-page; six folding plates.- // XIXth c. parchement quarter binding with marbred paper. So good margins. A little gallery in the inner margin from title-page to p. 18, which follows as a hole between lines 3 and 4 until p. 89; slight dampstain in bottom corners; plates in very fine condition.- // Prov.: Two stamp exlibris in verso of title-page, from E Gelin and from a libary (ilegible).- // Refs.: Boistel, 9 ; Conlon, III, 307. First edition of one of the first writtings of the abbé Esprit Pézenas, Jesuit, mathematician and astronomer, who began his career in 1729 as professor at the École Royale d Hydrographie, established the previous century in Marseilles by Louis XIV for the training of the royal galleys officers. Shortly afterwards, the Company commissioned him to reactivate the astronomical observatory they had at their  house on the Marseillaise hill of Saint-Croix. Until the closing of the École in 1749, Pezenas held simultaneously both occupations, and from then until his forced retirement on the occasion of French expulsion of Jesuits in 1763, he dedicated himself exclusively to his astronomical activity. For the time that he was teaching at the School of Hydrography, Pezenas also published 'Pratique du pilotage', and solved the open question about the determination of longitudes, a matter on which he would return 30 years later, in his retrait at Avignon with two memoirs, 'Examen de la methode de la Caille pour trover les longitudes' and 'Nouveaux essais pour déterminer les longitudes en pleine mer'. About Pezenas publications there is a bibliography prepared by Guy Bostel(1), but, unfortunately, it is insufficient in realtion with these 'Elemens de pilotage' because the data related with the two editions published are mixed as if there was only one. 'Elemens de pilotage' was published twice. Firstly, this edition from 1733, and afterwards one undated with the mention of nouvelle edition in the title-page, published in the smaller format in 12, to which some people, as for instance Querard, dated erroneously in 1732(2). Both of them are very rare imprints. One of the nouvelle edition was auctioned in Paris in 2011, but we should back to Sotheby s, 1981, to find one exemple of the first edition like this one. It should be noted that most of the preserved copies of the first edition  also the Bibliotèque nationale de France copy have only four plates. We have only located other copy full of the six plates, such as the one we offer, the Harvard Library copy.

Contemporary blind-stamped parchment, with handwritten title to spines. Raised bands. First volume with an engraved frontispiece portrait of the author by W. P.

Series comprising the complete set of Hermann Witsius' compendium of religious works in two volumes ("Miscellaneorum sacrorum"), and his magnum opus "De Oeconomia Foederum Dei Cum Hominibus, Libri Quatuor" (The Economy of the Covenants Between God and Man). - The first volume of "Miscellaneorum sacrorum," published in 1733, is the third edition, but contains the first edition (with separate title page dated 1712) of Johannes Marckius' "Oratio funebris, in obitum plurimum reverendi, doctissimi, et celeberrimi viri, Hermannii Witsii," a funeral eulogy delivered on October 29, 1708, just a week after Hermann Witsius' passing. It includes eight full-page engravings (unsigned), including four double-page. Six of these appear in the text on Jewish law and ritual ("de Tabernaculi Levitici mysteriis"), and one includes an overflap showing the Ark of the Covenant. Also includes an extensive Index at rear. - The second volume of "Miscellaneorum sacrorum," published in 1712, is the second edition. It contains 23 academic exercises in public disputation, preaching, and lecturing intended to solidify learning and churchly skills. Also includes the essay: "Conciliatory Animadversions on the Controversies agitated in Britain under the Names of Antinomians and Neonomians," as well as five orations, including the following: - "De vero Theologo," delivered on May 16th, 1675, in Franeker, on the occasion of his investiture as professor of Theology. - "De praestantia veritatis Evangelicae," delivered on May 2nd, 1680, in Utrecht, upon his appointment as professor in Divinity. - "De Theologo modesto," delivered on the 16th of October 1698, on his entrance upon the professorship of Divinity at Leiden. This second volume also includes an extensive Index at rear. [WITH] "De Oeconomia Foederum Dei Cum Hominibus, Libri Quatuor" (The Economy of the Covenants Between God and Man) is Hermann Witsius' magnum opus. Divided into four books, "this work presents the reader with a fully biblical and experiential doctrine of the divine covenants; opening up their nature, stipulations, curses, and blessings" (Ligonier). Witsius was motivated to publish this work by his sorrow at the controversies between Voetians (adepts of Dutch Calvinist theologian Gisbertus Voetius) and Cocceians (adepts of Dutch theologian Johannes Cocceius). Originally published in 1677, this 1712 copy is the fourth edition of Witsius' important work. Includes an extensive Index at rear. Bindings partly age-toned and water-stained. Closed tear along front joint of second volume. Ex-library stamp and reference number on additional engraved title in first volume.

A brilliant and devout student, he was fluent in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew by the age of 15, when he entered the University of Utrecht. He was ordained at 21 and served in several pastorates, filling both the pulpit and the academic chair over the course of his life" (Encyclopedia Britannica).

Simonneau.Édition originale de cet important traité sur les aurores boréales.Mairan apparaît comme un précurseur important des nouvelles théories aurorales et de disciplines émergentes comme la géophysique. C?est moins par le contenu scientifique de sa théorie qui persista néanmoins jusqu'à la fin du XIXe siècle, que par l?historicité qu?il a donnée aux aurores que l'ouvrage de cet médecin et géophysicien a servit de référence. En effet, l'ouvrage contient une liste très complète des aurores observées depuis le Ve siècle.Il permit également de sortir le phénomène de l'aurore boréale du monde du merveilleux qui caractérise encore la philosophie de son époque.

      1733 - Roland Fréart. John Evelyn, Translator & Editor The Three Greek Orders, Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian, comprise the First Part of this Treatise And the two Latin, Tuscan and Composita, the Latter. To which is added, An Account of Architects and Architecture, in an Historical and Etymological Explanation of certain Terms particularly affected by Architects. Together with Leon Baptista Alberti's Treatise of Statues. The Fourth Edition, with the Addition of The Elements of Architecture: Collected by Sir Henry Wotton, Knt. from the best Authors and Examples. London: Printed by T. W. for J. Walthoe, D. Midwinter, and A. Ward; W. Mears, F. Clay, B. Motte, and D. Browne, 1733. Fourth edition (first published in 1664) of John Evelyn's translation of Roland Fréart's Parallèle de l'Architecture antique et de la moderne, which was first published in Paris in 1650. Two parts in one folio (14.5 x 9.25 inches; 370 x 235 mm.). [24], xxiv, xxix-xxxviii, 115, [1, blank]; [6], 53, [1, blank], [2], 61-74 pages. In the first part, pages 74, 75, 79 are misnumbered 72, 69, 69; in the second part, page 73 is misnumbered 71. Signatures: a-e2 a-i2 k1 B-Z2 Aa-Gg2 A-P2 R-U2. Title-page printed in red and black with wood-engraved vignette. Fifty engravings in the text (forty full-page, two half-page on pages 67 and 69 in the second part, and eight head- and tail-piece vignettes). Small woodcut diagram in the text on page 47. Bound in it’s original full calf binding with a recent re-back to period and original label. A handsome binding for an amazingly detailed book. ESTC T117369. Harris 236. Keynes, Evelyn, 78. RIBA, Early Printed Books, 1137. See Fowler 130 and Millard, British, 19 (describing the 1707 second edition). In 1664 Evelyn issued the first edition of his translation of Roland Fréart's Parallèle de l'architecture antique avec la moderne, of 1650-'I had,' Evelyn wrote in his dedication, '(by the Commands of the Royal Society) endeavour'd the improvement of Timber, and the planting of Trees, I have advanced to that of Building as its proper and natural consequence'.In the first part of the Parallel Fréart deals with the three Greek orders as illustrated by a range of theorists and commentators, Palladio and Scamozzi, Serlio and Vignola, Barbaro and Cataneo, Alberti and Viola, Bullant and De L'Orme.The second part of the Parallel concerns the Tuscan and 'Composita,' dealt with in much the same way as before, but at less length.At the end Evelyn made his own contribution; he expanded Fréart's one-page explanation of terms to a twenty-eight page 'Account of Architects and Architecture, together with An Historical, and Etymological Explanation of certain Tearms particularly affected by Architects.' He took his cue from Vitruvius, dealing, in an essay rather than in an alphabetical list, with the qualities requisite for a good architect, a good patron, and a good workman, and then with a detailed analysis of the various parts of the orders. There had been nothing like this before in English, and though Evelyn claimed to be addressing his work primarily to craftsmen, they would not have comprehended much of his meticulous analysis. Appended to the Parallel was the first translation into English of Alberti. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         On Poetry: a Rapsody

      [London] Printed at Dublin, and Re-printed at London: J. Huggonson, 1733. First edition. Engraved device on title and headpiece. 28 pp. Folio. In later drab wrappers. Title and final leaf soiled, foxed and frayed at edges, with short repaired tears, marginal soiling to first few text leaves, "11 Jany. 1733/4" on title-page in contemporary hand (published 31 December 1733 according to Foxon), and correction in ink to misprint, p. 4, l. 5. First edition. Engraved device on title and headpiece. 28 pp. Folio. 'All Human Race wou'd fain be Wits, / And Millions miss, for one that hits'. First edition of this satire on Grub Street hacks which culminates in an attack on Sir Robert Walpole. Despite the imprint, there is no known Dublin edition. Swift's friend, the poet Mary Barber, conveyed the manuscript, along with "Epistle to a Lady" and others, to Matthew Pilkington, who later betrayed Swift's authorship. The Walpole administration considered arresting Swift for libel for lines in this and the "Epistle" but refrained, "upon being told that an army of no less than ten thousand men would be necessary for the arrest of the Dean of Ireland." The Hayward copy (lent by Harold Williams) contains manuscript verses recorded by Sir Walter Scott that "ought to have been inserted ... if it had been safe to print them" Foxon S888; Hayward 153; Rogers 869; Rothschild 2147; Teerink 741; Williams II, 639

Leaves extended at inner margins, light creasing, soiling to verso of final leaf. First edition. Engraved device on title, engraved headpieces. 19, [1] pp., with half-title. Folio. "Nearly as much mystification surrounds the publication of the poems as its authorship" (Foxon) "This poem is included in the Swift canon, partly on the evidence of Mrs. Letitia Pilkington who, in her Memoirs, claimed that her husband, Matthew Pilkington, had negotiated its publication on Swift's behalf, and partly on internal evidence. Swift himself denied authorship …" (Rothschild). The poem bears resemblance to Verses on the Death of Dr. Swift (1739), in which Swift similarly treats Rochefoucauld's maxim ("He says, 'Whenever Fortune sends / Disaster, to our Dearest Friends, / Although, we outwardly may Grieve, / We oft, are Laughing in our Sleeve"). With a dedication by the printer - signing as "L.M." - to Alexander Pope, whom Foxon suggests as a possible author of the poem.

         Particularités et observations sur les ministres des finances de France les plus célèbres, depuis 1660 jusqu'en 1791

      First Edition, Erste Ausgabe, Halbleder / half-leer / demi-veau / half leather, zeitgenössisch / uit dezelfde tijd / époque / contemporary, 8, xi, 397 pages, / Seiten, Titelblatt / titelpagina / page de titre / title-page mit with Stempel / stempel / estampille / stamp, Zustand: gut, a good copy MONTYON, ANTOINE JEAN BAPTISTE ROBERT AUGET, BARON DE (1733-1820), French philanthropist, was born in Paris on the 23rd of December 1733. His father was a maf ire des comptes he was educated for the law, and became advocate at the Chtelet in 1755, master of requests to the council of state in 1760, and intendant successively of Auvergne, Provence and La Rochelle. He had repeatedly shown great independence of character, protesting against the accusation of Caradeuc de La Chalotais in 1766, and refusing in 1771 to suppress the local courts of justice in obedience to Maupeou. He was made a councillor of state in 1775 by the influence of Louis de Bourbon, duke of Penthivre, and in 1780 he was attached to the court in the honorary office of chancellor to the comte d Artois (afterwards Charles X.). He followed the princes into exile, and lived for some years in London. During the emigration period he spent large sums on the alleviation of the poverty of his fellow immigrants, returning to France only at the second restoration. Between 1780 and 1787 he had founded a series of prizes, the awards to be made by the French academy and the academies of science and medicine. These prizes fell into abeyance during the revolutionary period, but were re-established in 1815. Montyon died on the 29th of December 1820, bequeathing io,ooo francs for the perpetual endowment of each of the following prizes: for the discovery of the means of rendering some mechanical process less dangerous to the workman for the perfecting of any technical improvement in a mechanical process for the book which during the year rendered the greatest service to humanity the prix de vertu for the most courageous act on the part of a poor Frenchmanthe awards being left as before to the learned academies. Montyon wrote a series of works, chiefly on political economy: Eloge de Michel de lhpital (Paris, 1777) Recherches et considerations sur la population de la France (1778), a share of which is attributed to his secretary, Moheau Rapport fail a Louis XVIII. (Constance, 1796), in which he maintained in opposition to Calonnes Tableau de lEurope that France had always possessed a constitution, which had, however, been violated by the kings of France Letat statistique du Tunkin (1811) and Particularites . . . sur les ministres des finances en France (1812)..

         The Impertinent, or a Visit to the Court. A Satyr. By an Eminent Hand

      London: John Wileord [i.e Wilford], 1733. First edition. [3]-16 pp., lacking half-title. 4to. Modern half calf and marbled boards, morocco title label on front cover. First edition. [3]-16 pp., lacking half-title. 4to. Imitation of Horace by Way of Donne. First edition of one of the rarest of Pope's works, an imitation of Donne's Satyre IV (c. 1597), itself a reworking of Horce's Satire 1.9 ("Ibam forte via sacra"). In Horace's poem the speaker is pesteredby a man petitioning favors and can only break free when the man's adversary appears; both Pope and Donne change the location to the court. Pope's version contains a pointed attack on Walpole and was published anonymously and with the printer's name perhaps deliberately changed from Wilford to Wileord. Pope later acknowledged authorship by including the poem in his 1735 Works under the title "Fourth Satire of Dr. John Donne," and several unauthorized editions followed in 1737. The half-title is missing in most, though not all, recorded copies; Griffith notes a half-title is allowed for by the pagination, though it was lacking in both copies he cites. A clean, wide-margined copy. ESTC T5678; Foxon P898; Griffith 317; Keynes, Donne 112n

         A Collection of all the Acts of Assembly, Now in Force, in the Colony of Virginia. With the titles of such as are expir'd, or repeal'd. And notes in the margin, shewing how, and at what time, they were repeal'd. Examin'd with the records, by a committee appointed for that purpose

      Williamsburg: William Parks, 1733. Folio. (16 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches). [2], 622pp. (Without the list of subscribers, found in few copies). Woodcut arms of Virginia on the title, ornamental headpieces and tailpieces throughout. Contemporary boards, spine perished. Housed in a black morocco box.Provenance: John Aspinall (1716-1784)The first collection of Virginia laws published in Virginia and the first significant book published in the colony, issued by its first printer, William Parks: of the greatest importance for Virginia and the history of printing in America.The beginnings of printing in Virginia can be traced to 1682, when William Nuthead arrived in Jamestown with a press, seeking to print the acts of the Assembly. Gov. Thomas Culpeper threw him out, and Nuthead left for Maryland without issuing a single publication. Culpeper's successor banned printing altogether, and fifty years would pass before the establishment of printing in Virginia. In February 1728, William Parks, the official printer to the Maryland Assembly since 1726, seeking to expand his business, petitioned the Virginia Assembly for a similar position. Receiving the commission, Parks opened an office in Williamsburg in 1730. That year, he published what is generally credited as Virginia's first imprint: John Markland's Typographia: An Ode to Printing , a 15-page paean to Sir William Gooch, the governor who had approved the invitation to Parks. This survives on a unique copy, at the John Carter Brown Library. A handful of broadsides, almanacks and pamphlets followed, all surviving in single copies, until the publication of the present volume, the first work of any size published in the colony.Edited and prepared for press by George Webb, this collection was the first collection of Virginia laws to be compared with the official scribal record by a committee of the General Assembly (John Holloway, John Clayton, Archibald Blair, John Randolph, and William Robertson) and is considered more accurate than any previous compilation, as well as being the first collection of Virginia laws to be published with legislative sanction. The work contains all the acts then in force from 1662 through the spring 1732 session of the Assembly. Most of the earlier laws would seem to have been copied from the London, 1684 collection of Virginia laws, with the rest set directly from the scribal record. This included, among many historic acts, the first printing of the infamous slave code of 1705 (4 Annae, Cap. 49, see pp. 218-228), the foundation of Virginia's slave legislation which codified slave status, defining slaves as real estate, and acquiting masters who kill slaves during punishment, among other horrors. The work also includes the far reaching 1723 act passed in response to fear of slave insurrections (9 George I, Cap. 4, pp. 339-344), which all but precluded manumission, denied the rights of freed slaves to vote, prohibited assembly by slaves on pain of death and more.Given the number of copies needed for official purposes (Justices of the Peace, members of the Assembly, clerks and justices of the county courts, etc.), plus the 230 known private subscribers, it is estimated that upwards of five hundred copies were printed; an astonishing task on a recently-established American colonial press. About twenty complete copies have survived. Almost all of these have been in institutional collections since the early 20th century.The quality of printing is impressive; this is perhaps the finest example of Virginia colonial printing, and among the most beautiful works published in all of colonial America. The type (similar to Caslon) and paper are believed to have been imported from Holland; ornamental headpieces, tailpieces and fleurons are evidenced throughout.The present large paper example is more than three inches taller and an inch-and-a-half wider than other extant copies. Although we can find no reference to the work being issued in large paper, it was presumably done for presentation to important colonial officials. Besides Franklin's Cato Major and the 1736 Lewis Timothy printing of the Laws of South Carolina, this is the only pre-1750 American imprint of which we are aware, published in a large-paper issue. This example with provenance to John Aspinall of Standen Hall, who was educated for the law and became one of the serjeants-at-law and Recorder of Clitheroe.Evans 3728; Swem III:22517; Clayton-Torrence 124; Sabin 100385; Berg, Williamsburg Imprints 10; A.

         La araucana. Primera, segunda y tercera parte

      Francisco Martinez Abad, impresor, Madrid 1733 - Don Alonso de Ercilla y Zúñiga nació en Madrid el 7 de agosto de 1533. Ligado a la nobleza y hombre culto, fue paje del futuro Rey Felipe II y acompañando a éste realizó diversos viajes por Europa. En 1555, el joven Alonso se embarcó rumbo al Perú con Jerónimo de Alderete, quien falleció en las cercanías de Panamá, y posteriormente llegó a Chile en 1557, formando parte de la expedición del nuevo gobernador García Hurtado de Mendoza. Luego, el 26 de junio de aquel año, los españoles desembarcaron en la Isla Quiriquina, desde donde pasaron a la destruida ciudad de Concepción (hoy Penco) donde construyeron un fuerte para repeler los constantes ataques de los araucanos. Tras sangrientos combates siguieron hacia el sur, hasta finalmente llegar a la isla grande de Chiloé, desde donde comenzó el retorno. De este modo, el poeta y soldado Ercilla estuvo en el teatro de operaciones de la Guerra de Arauco en 1557 hasta finales del año siguiente, luego de que un incidente ocurrido en la ciudad de La Imperial fuera la causa de su destierro al Perú, ordenado por el gobernador García Hurtado de Mendoza. Compuesta en octavas reales y dividida en tres partes con un total de 37 cantos, "La Araucana" de don Alonso de Ercilla y Zúñiga es el primer gran poema épico dedicado a la conquista de América y el mejor en lengua castellana. Desde su aparición en 1569, "La Araucana", costeada por su propio autor, obtuvo éxito, lo que obligó a Ercilla a preparar la segunda parte en 1578 y, más tarde, en 1589, la tercera. El poema completo, con sus tres partes, se publicó en Madrid, por primera vez, en 1590. Valorada desde sus inicios, esta pieza clave del Siglo de Oro español aparece ya distinguida en el escrutinio de los libros del Quijote de Miguel de Cervantes, donde es destacada conjuntamente con "La Austriada" de Juan Rufo y "El Monserrat" de Cristóbal de Virués.
