         A TREATISE CONCERNING THEPRINCIPLES OF HUMAN KNOWLEDGE

      JACOB TONSON, LONDON 1734 - Berkeley's most significant work, which challenged Descartes, Newton and Locke claiming that every existing object is generated wholly by human consciousness.This volume forms part of the collected edition published in 1734 and includes Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous in opposition to scepticks and atheists. In addition, the volume includes The Theory of Vision, or visual language. The volume has been rebound at some time in half leather and the spine is almost detached, but the binding is tight and the text block in good condition. There are a few marginal notes and it is obvious from them that the pages were trimmed when rebound, but this does not impact in any way on the readability of the volume. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      0 - Dinarich, Esteban (S.J.), Vida, y virtudes heróicas de la Augustíssima Emperatriz Leonor Magdalena Teresa. Dedicada a su Alteza Sereníssima la Princesa de Asturias (Nieta de la Augusta Emperatriz). Traducida del idioma portugués en castellano por el Doctor Don Juan Elías Gómez de Terán, Capellán de Honor, y Predicador de Su Magestad, y Cura de su Real Palacio, Madrid, Imprenta de los Herederos de Francisco del Hierro, 1734. 4º. (24 x 17 cm.), 28 hs. + 1 lámina + 496 págs. Portada a dos tintas, papel de gran gramaje, con amplios márgenes. El extraordinario grabado calcográfico del retrato de la Emperatriz viuda fue realizado por Palomino. Asimismo posee dos pequeños grabados en cobre firmados por Benítez. Ejemplar único conocido, emisión especial realizada para la casa real con extraordinaria encuadernación en piel de época, con el lomo con nervios, título y adornos en oro restaurado, y los planos con sendos superlibros con los escudos de las monarquías española y portuguesa. Este ejemplar se diferencia de las 8 ediciones referenciadas en el Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico Español (CCPB000289759-8 y CCPB000443042-5), y la descrita por Palau (nº. 373493), en el replanteamiento de la portada (fol. a1) en la que desaparece el nombre del traductor portugués ("Juan Leopoldo, Varon Libre de Seegh), y se explicita el traductor español y su cargos ("Doctor, Don Juan Elías Gómez de Terán, Capellán de Honor y Predicador de su Magestad, y Cura de su Real Palacio), frente a ese anónimo "Por un sacerdote secular". Asimismo se modifica la firma de la dedicatoria a la infanta María Bárbara de Braganza (vuelto del folio c2) que en el resto de los ejemplares figura con el criptónimo D.D.J.E.G.T., ahora se desarrolla, "Doct. D. Juan Elías Gómez de Terán". Por el contrario, coinciden ambas emisiones en mantener este criptónimo en la Suma del Privilegio (folio f2). Es destacable asimismo que otra de las diferencias notables de esta emisión es que utiliza un papel de mejor calidad, más fuerte. En las páginas que el Traductor dedica a su trabajo se nos ofrece cumplida noticia de la historia editorial de esta biografía de la Emperatriz consorte del Sacro Imperio Germánico, escrita en primer lugar en latín por el confesor de la monarca, el jesuita Esteban Dinarich, provincial de la orden. Posteriormente será traducida al alemán, italiano y portugués, e incluso formará parte de un compendio latino. Gómez de Terán, autor de varias obras morales, la trasladará, como se explicita en la portada, a partir de la versión portuguesa, Vida e virtudes heroicas da augustissima imperatriz Leonor Magdalena Theresa, esposa de Leopoldo o grande, imperador dos romanos. Composta per um religioso da Companhia de Jesus, e traduzida em portuguez (par D. João Leopoldo Baraõ livre de Seegh), Lisboa, na Patriarcal Officina de Musica, 1727. La obra se dedica a la Infanta portuguesa María Bárbara de Braganza (1711-1758) princesa de Asturias, esposa de Fernando VI y nieta de la Emperatriz biografiada, quien incluso conservaba en su larga lista de nombres el recuerdo de su abuela (María Magdalena Bárbara Xavier Leonor Teresa Antónia Josefa de Bragança). Como es sabido fue una de las reinas españolas más cultas, mecenas y amante de las artes, protectora del famoso cantante Farinelli, y fundadora del Convento de las Salesas Reales de Madrid, en donde reposan sus restos mortales. Es posible pensar que el ejemplar que ofrecemos pudiera haber sido el personal de la Infanta, habida cuenta que no se conserva en la Biblioteca del Palacio Real de Madrid. En este sentido, y como curiosidad, cabe destacar que las Librerías de viejo españolas y extranjeras y de sus asociaciones promotoras publicaron un opúsculo conmemorativo de 16 páginas en el 2006 con motivo del bautizo de la infanta doña Leonor de Borbón, en el que se reproducía la portada de esta obra en la emisión corriente. La librería ofrece por tiempo limitado un descuento del 10%. El precio original de este ejemplar [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Leçons de phisique, contenant les élémens de la phisique, déterminés par les seules loix des mécaniques., expliquées au Collége Royal de France. En 4 volumes. Edition originale et complète

      Brocas (et autres), Paris 1734 - Paris, Brocas (et autres), 1734-1739, 4 pt. in-8°, illustrés de nombreuses figures planches [I, II, III, IV (2 fois), V (3 fois), VI (2 fois), VII, VIII (2 fois), IX, X (2 fois) + 8 planches non numérotées], reliures plein veau, dos à cinq nerfs ornés, tranches rouges. Edition originale et complète. Travail de vers dans les premières pages du premier volume sans atteinte au texte et sur la partie supérieure du second plat du quatrième volume, léger manque sur la planche VII, sinon bon état général. Personnage majeur dans la lutte prolongée contre l'importation de la science newtonienne en France, Privat de Molières consacre sa carrière au développement et à l'amélioration de la physique cartésienne. Conscient de la supériorité de la précision newtonienne par rapport à l'imprécision cartésienne dans l'explication des phénomènes naturels, il était néanmoins convaincu de la rectitude de l'idéal de Descartes d'une science purement mécanique. Dans une série de mémoires lus à l'Académie, dans des articles du Journal de Trévoux, et dans la version publiée de ses conférences au Collège Royal, les quatre volumes de Leçons de physique, Privat de Molières propose un programme cartésien remanié qui, en intégrant les calculs et les techniques mathématiques de Newton, s'accorderait avec des données expérimentales et observationnelles exactes. Au centre de son système se trouvait l'existence de petits tourbillons, idée empruntée à Malebranche pour remplacer la théorie cartésienne discréditée de la matière.

         The Tragedy of Locrine, the Eldest son of King Brutus

      London: Tonson, 1734. 2nd separate edition, and the earliest one you can buy, as neither luck, nor wealth, will procure the Thomas Creede 1st edition (a 1594 quarto, that's hideously rare, and expensive beyond speculation). Rebound in old marbled paper wrappers, near fine (really nice for this book). The 17th century attributed Locrine to Shakespeare, and it was included in the 4th folio of 1685. More recent debate advocates assigning it to either Wentworth Smith, George Peele, Robert Greene, or even Charles Tilney, with Shakespeare serving as reviser, but doubts remain, no one knows for sure, and new discovery may attribute it wholly or primarily to Shakespeare as it once was. Collation: 12mo: [2], [3], 4-59, [1] (frontis+60 pages, including the ad, a tirade against Walker). Near fine.

         The Ichnographii of the Town Parts, Leasehold and Copie Hold, Tennements and Cottages in the Mannor of Milton Abbas.

      1656 and 1734. - Large folio. 650 x 420 mm. Bound collection of 12 manuscript maps covering the area around Milton Abbas, Dorset. Dating from two periods, 1656 and 1735, bound out of sequence. The earlier maps are extremely ornate, hand coloured and detailed plans with reference keys, all mounted on linen, 1656 or a little later. The later sequence of maps is surveyed for Jacob Banks [Bancks], Esq and dated 1734, on vellum and comprises field outlines and perhaps serves as an accompanying key to the earlier maps. 1.

Hewish Farm, Surveyed for Jacob Banks, Esq. 1734. 355 x 710 mm. on vellum. ? see 5. The Milton Abbas estate was in the hands of the Tregonwell Family from the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries and passed to John Tregonwell IV sometime during the seventeenth century. It seems likely that the first series of plans was produced on his death when the estate was passed on to his son John Tregonwell V. He died without a male heir in 1696 and his daughter married Sir Jacob Bancks, nephew to the Swedish ambassador. On Bancks' death in 1724 the estate was inherited by his second son, also called Jacob, who began extensive rebuilding and renovation. It would be reasonable to assume that he also undertook the new survey of his estates, which feature here, based on the earlier survey. On his death in 1737 there was a fifteen year dispute between rival Bancks and Tregonwell claimants and the estate was sold in 1752 to Joseph Damer, later to become Lord Milton, then the Duke of Dorchester. The grounds of the Abbey itself were later landscaped by Capability Brown, and much of the original village was demolished and relocated. Full eighteenth century mottled calf, worn, but sound.

Full contemporary sprinkled calf, double gilt ruled borders, raised & gilt banded spine; some minor rubbing to hinges & board edges. Name stamp on front endpaper: ?This is the property of Silke Montague' ESTC T53891. Each of the three parts has its own titlepage. George Cheyne, 1671-1743, was a Scottish physician and proto-psychologist based in Bath, best known now as an early supporter of a vegetarian diet. The English Malady, first published in 1733, included case histories of some of Cheyne's patients and a lengthy account of his own battle with obesity and depression. To Cheyne, the English malady was melancholy, not obesity itself, but obesity was a symptom along with lowness of spirits, anxiety, insomnia and nervous agitation, all of which were the result of modern urbanity and an immoderate, luxurious lifestyle. In calling melancholy ?the English malady,? Cheyne was flattering his readers by suggesting that it was a syndrome arising from English wealth, civilization and refinement. The eighteenth century elite believed themselves particularly susceptible to nervous disorders and dietary complaints ? probably because they tended to overindulge in rich food and take very little exercise. The patients described in the case studies suffer from various maladies combining both nervous and physical symptoms; since Cheyne believed that mind, body, and spirit were linked, he recommended a healthy, ?animal-low? diet and light exercise as treatment for a wide range of mental and physical illnesses. He had a number of high-profile patients including Alexander Pope, Samuel Richardson, Robert Walpole?s daughter, the Earl and Countess of Huntingdon, the Earls of Essex and Bath, and many others.
