      Printed for G. Strahan, in Cornhill. 1734 - [6], xxxii, [2], 370, [6]pp ads. 8vo. Some sl. marginal browning but a very good clean copy. 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.

Likewise a true relation of the most secret intrigues and negotiations of the courts of France, Spain, Germany, and Savoy. Interspersed with variety of entertaining amours and original letters of the several Princes concerned. Also the political intrigues of the late King of Sardinia, containing an account of the ill treatment of Mr Phelippeaux the French Ambassador at the Court of Turin, contrary to the Law of Nations. Translated from the original French of Count Bonneval, now in great esteem at the court of the Grand-Seignior, by J. Sparrow, Gent. With a correct map explaining the seat of the last and present war in Italy.

      Printed for W. Mears. 1734 - [16], 376pp, engraved folding map bound as a frontispiece. 8vo. Some sl. worming to blank lower margin from page 253, single hole to page 301 then sl. more noticeable. Handsome full contemporary calf, gilt panelled spine, red morocco label. F.e.ps pasted down on to boards. ESTC T139730, the first English edition, and indicating that the author is not Count Bonneval. A second edition was published in 1736, under the title, Memoirs of the Famous Bashaw Bonneval. Our research indicates that the translator J. Sparrow also appears to be fictitious; ESTC records ?Sparrow? as author of A New English Dictionary in 1739, noting that the name is a pseudonym for Benjamin Norton Defoe. Benjamin, a hack writer, is thought to be the illegitimate son of Daniel Defoe, although the evidence is inconclusive. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         The Koran, Commonly called The Alcoran of Mohammed.

      London: by C. Ackers for J. Wilcox,, 1734. Translated into English immediately from the Original Arabic; with Explanatory Notes, taken from the most approved Commentators. To which is prefixed A Preliminary Discourse. By George Sale. Quarto (248 x 190 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, rebacked with the original gilt-tooled spine laid down, raised bands, title gilt to second compartment, rolled gilt border enclosing decorative blind panel to sides, red sprinkled edges. Title-page printed in red and black, folding map of Arabia, 3 genealogical plates of which 2 folding, one folding plan of Mecca. Light craquelure to darkened spine, sides and extremities lightly rubbed and scuffed, title page slightly browned, very small closed tear to folding map stub, a few trivial marks to contents, but otherwise remarkably crisp and fresh internally. A very good copy. First edition of Sale's Qur'an, the first English translation of the Qur'an to be made directly from the Arabic, and the basis for all subsequent English editions until the mid-nineteenth century; previously the only complete English translation had been Alexander Ross's 1649 version, which relied solely on the 1647 French edition by Alexandre du Ryer. George Sale was a solicitor and "the first notable English Arabist who was not in holy orders … From 1726 to 1734 he was closely associated with the Society for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge, which he served in his legal capacity. Meanwhile he was working on a translation of the Qur'an … a landmark in the history of Qur'anic studies" (Holt, Studies in the History of the Near East, p. 58). Sale was textually indebted to the 1698 Latin translation of Ludovico Marracci, confessor to Pope Innocent XI; notably, his citation of Muslim commentators is restricted to those already mentioned by his predecessor. Yet Sale's work, and in particular his extensive Preliminary Discourse discussing both the biography of the Prophet and the Arabian context of Islam, displays "an enlightened and objective attitude which may have been responsible for his gradual dissociation from the activities of the SPCK", in contrast to the openly polemical intentions of Marracci, whose prefaced offered a lengthy refutation of the Qur'an and Muhammad's prophethood (ibid.) Sale's balanced presentation of Muhammad and Islamic origins was much admired by his contemporaries, including Voltaire, Lessing and especially Gibbon, whose treatment of Arabian history and Islam in his Decline and Fall relies heavily on Sale. In 1921 Edward Denison Ross claimed that Sale's version had still not been superseded, and more than fifty years later Sale's objectivity guarded him from criticism in Edward Said's Orientalism (1978). Provenance: ownership inscription of "Wm Woodforde, Galhampton House" to the front pastedown, above the later ownership inscription "Jane Woodforde, Ansford House, 1845". William (1758-1844) was the nephew of the noted Somerset clergyman James (1740-1803), whose diaries (mentioning William) were rediscovered and published in the early 20th century as The Diary of a Country Parson, and have been widely studied for its "incomparably vivid picture of country life and manners" (ODNB): an interesting provenance hinting at Sale's wide contemporary readership and the growing interest in Islam across 18th-century England.

The first part of Pope's celebrated 'Essay on Man' is present in a large paper copy, corresponding to Foxon P824 and Rothschild 1614, where the Note succinctly renders the complexities of the bibliographical debate: "Part I is the variant described by Wise (Ashley) as the first; Griffith (p. 224 et seq.) argues that it is the second, (G)." Foxon notes that "Pp. 1-6 (and presumably cancelled B2) are reimpressed; the remainder is from standing type revised and rearranged." (The pagination omits pp. 7-8 but the text is complete. Griffith does not mention large paper copies of 304 and records an uncut copy as measuring 12-1/8 x 7-7/8 in, substantially smaller than the present copy.)This copy from the library of Frank Hogan, with autograph notes by Wise concerning the issue points of this copy laid in. Wise writes "This is an unusually fine copy ? Part I is a Large Paper Copy. This is very rare indeed. Yours is only the 2nd Large Paper copy I have actually held in my hand, & besides these I have only heard of one other. That makes 3. For many years my copy on L.P. was supposed to be unique".

         Essai sur la musique ancienne et moderne. With : (2) [LA BORDE, Jean-Benjamin de]. Mémoires sur les proportions musicales, le genre énarmonique des Grecs et celui des modernes ... Supplément a l'Essai sur la musique.Paris, printed by Denys Pierres and sold by Eugène Onfroy, 1870-1781. 2 works in 4 volumes. 4to. Each title-page with engraved vignette, numerous engraved head- and tailpieces, letterpress music notes, 3 folding letterpress tables and 463 engraved plates (several folding). Contemporary calf, gold-tooled spines.

      Cohen 538; Fétis II, 26; Honegger II, 682; for La Borde: Fend, "La Borde, Jean-Benjamin de", in: Grove Music Online. Very rare first edition of a wide-ranging account of music, finely illustrated and including complete compositions by Claude le Jeune, Lassus, Ronsard and several others. It "remains an extremely valuable source of information on 18th-century music, as well as that of earlier periods and its historiography" (Fend). La Borde, a popular composer, writer and farm tax collector, assembled a vast amount of information on music, both European and non-European. The first volume describes, amongst others, the music of Chaldea, Egypt, Persia, Turkey and Arabia, followed by chapters on individual instruments, with illustrations of a marabba, tambura, semendsje, and a surma. Volumes 2-4 are devoted to composition and songs and the supplement describes harmony and proportion, concluding with the engraved text and music of a song, with the several parts ("basse", "taille" and "haute contre") engraved separately.Jean-Benjamin de La Borde (1734-1794) studied the violin with Dauvergne and composition with the great Jean-Philippe Rameau. He composed many "opéras comiques" and wrote a number of books on topography, music, history and literature, but he is best remembered as the author of the present encyclopaedic work on music.In very good condition. A renowned work on music, attractively bound in contemporary calf.

         A General History of the Lives and Adventures of the Most Famous Highwaymen, Murderers, Street-Robbers, &c.

      London: J. Janeway,, 1734. To which is added, a Genuine Account of the Voyages and Plunders of the most Notorious Pyrates. Interspersed with several diverting Tales, and pleasant Songs. And adorned with the heads of the most Remarkable Villains, Curiously Engraven on Copper. Small folio (353 x 223 mm). Late 19th century red morocco by Bedford, richly gilt spine, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing gilt French fillet panel with corner fleurons, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Title page printed in red and black, 26 copperplates by Basire, Bowles, Toms, Atkins, Parr or Pritchard after Nicholls or Jett, woodcut initials and ornaments. Joints and extremities professionally refurbished. An excellent copy, tall, clean and crisp. First edition (with the catchword "As" on the first page of the introduction). Originally published in seventy-two weekly twopenny numbers, Johnson's famous book is actually a compilation of excerpts from Alexander Smith's History of the Lives of the Most Noted Highwaymen (1714) and Johnson's own earlier publication A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the most Notorious Pyrates (1724). "In 1932 the American scholar John Robert Moore announced that the real author of the History of the Pyrates was none other than Daniel Defoe but subsequent research has cast serious doubt on this theory. Johnson's evident familiarity with seamen's language suggests that he spent time at sea and he may well have been a sea captain" (ODNB). The illustrations, largely engraved by Isaac Basire after Nicholls, have a robust Hogarthian vigour and a number exemplify the archetypal perception of the highwayman holding up a stage coach at gunpoint. Provenance: the Hoe copy, from the library of Robert Hoe III (1839-1909), New York businessman and celebrated bibliophile, with his black morocco gilt book label (sale of his library, Anderson Auction Company, 8 January 1912, lot 1797).

Divided into nine books, the Histoire takes for its theme the gradual Christian reconquest of Spain from the Moors and the unification of Castile and Aragon under Ferdinand and Isabella. Orléans finished only the first seven books, the last two being completed by Pierre Joseph Arthuys and Pierre Brumoy. The Histoire was reprinted at The Hague, 1734; Paris, 1737 and 1787, and an Italian translation appeared at Venice, 1737. The folding map, specially engraved for this edition, was prepared by the French cartographer Jean Baptiste Nolin.The folding engraved plate in volume II is a genealogical tree (drawn to look like an actual tree) showing the pretenders to the throne of Aragon in the early fifteenth century.Orléans (1641-1698) was born in Bourges and entered the Jesuit order in 1659, later serving as an instructor in rhetoric. He had earlier written a similar work, Histoire des revolutions d'Angleterre (Amsterdam, 1689), which met with considerable success, being reprinted many times and translated into several languages. Among his many other published works are biographies of noted Jesuits.*** Backer-Sommervogel V, 1944. Brunet II, 822. Graesse II, 428. NUC: MH, NjP, InU, CU, MeB, NNG.

        Alciphron, ou Le petit philosophe ; en sept dialogues; Contenant une Apologie de la Religion Chrétienne contre ceux que l'on nomme Esprits-Forts.

      - La Haye, P. Gosse & J. Neaulme, 1734. 2 volumes in-12, plein veau porphyre de l'époque, dos lisses ornés de compartiments fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin bordeaux, triples filets d'encadrement sur les plats, filets sur les coupes, tranches jaspées, (8), 372, (10) p. et (2), 218, (6), 133, (15) p., planche gravée dépliante de figures géométriques. Première traduction française, par l’encyclopédiste Elie de Joncourt, d’‘Alciphron, or the Minute Philosopher’, que Berkeley composa en 1729 à Newport (Rhode Island), ce qui en fait le premier ouvrage philosophique d’importance rédigé en Amérique du Nord. "Alciphron reprend le projet pascalien d'une apologie de la religion chrétienne contre ses critiques modernes. D'une haute tenue littéraire, l'oeuvre est imitée des dialogues platoniciens et s'inscrit dans la grande tradition apologétique. Parmi les quelques intellectuels qui s'y sont risqués depuis la Renaissance, Berkeley est un de ceux qui se sont le plus brillamment acquittés de cette tâche" (Pierre M. Bellemare, Univ. du Québec). Pour les historiens des idées, l’ouvrage possède une valeur considérable par le débat qu’il suscita autour de la question du déisme, parmi ses contemporains en Angleterre: Shaftesbury, Hobbes, Toland, Tindal, Collins, Mandeville, comme en France à travers Voltaire et ses détracteurs. Contient, en fin du second volume: "Essay sur une nouvelle théorie de la vision" ("Nouvelle théorie de la vision défendue et expliquée"), en pagination séparée. (‘France Littéraire’, I, 286. Jessop, ‘A Bibliography of Berkeley’, 126b. Rochedieu, Bibliogr. of French translations of English works’, 22). Petit cachet ex-libris. Très bon exemplaire, bien relié à l’époque.
