         La Vie du Duc de Ripperda, Seigneur de Poelgeest, Grand d'Espagne, etc.etc.etc. Par Mr. P. M. B.

      A Amsterdam, chez J. Ryckhoff et Z. Romberg, 1739. - 2 volumes in-12. 13ff. 1 planche hors-texte gravée. 332pp. + 1f. 1 planche hors-texte gravée. 508pp. Plein veau brun, dos à ners orné (reliure de l'époque, petits défauts). Edition Originale de la première biographie de Johan Willem Ripperdá, militaire néerlandais devenu Premier ministre espagnol puis pasha du Maroc. Figure inclassable, le Duc de Ripperdá mena une existence romanesque dans les plus hautes sphères, au gré des opportunités politiques et économiques qu'il sut se procurer: né en 1680 dans une famille noble de la ville de Groningue, il embrassa d'abord la carrière des armes. Devenu ambassadeur de Hollande à Madrid, il se convertit au catholicisme afin de pouvoir offrir ses services au roi Felipe V d'Espagne, duquel il fut brièvement le Premier Ministre, à la faveur d'un mensonge au cours de négociations avec un envoyé de la couronne d'Autriche. Forcé de s'exiler, il regagna les Pays-Bas, avant finalement de rejoindre le sultan du Maroc, Abdallah II. Converti cette fois à l'islam, on lui confia notamment le commandement de troupes qui attaquèrent les espagnols à Ceuta. C'est à Tétouan qu'il mourut en 1737. Entré à dix-huit ans au monastère bénédictin, Pierre Massuet se convertit bientôt au protestantisme et s'enfuit aux Pays-Bas. Devenu médecin, il s'établit à Amsterdam où il s'adonna à l'enseignement et à l'écriture de nombreux ouvrages salués pour leur grande érudition. Bois aux titres. Titres imprimés en rouge et noir. Deux frontispices gravées d'après l'artiste néerlandais Simon Fokke (1712–1784). Quelques taches. Un peu court de marge en tête, mais assez bon exemplaire. Cioranescu, 43705.

         Projet de taille tarifée ... revue par l'auteur et augmentee de nouvelles observations

      chez Jean Daniel Beman. Cm. 18,5, pp. (4), 8, xxiv, 479 (1). Esemplare proveniente dalla biblioteca del Marchese Romualdo De Sterlich come si evince dall'antico timbretto al frontespizio "ex Museo March. De Sterlich" e dai titoli impressi in oro nella parte inferiore del dorso "R. S. segnatura s. III. 18". Il Marchese De Sterlich (Chieti 1712 - 1788) intraprese la creazione di una biblioteca pubblica nella Chieti del settecento, importante sia per il numero dei volumi, sia per la tempestività con cui veniva aggiornata, rappresentò inoltre un momento di rottura con la cultura circostante per la presenza di opere degli illuministi europei (Cfr. D.B.I., XXXIX, pp. 450-51). Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titoli in oro al dorso, segnalibro in seta verde conservato. Alone chiaro limitato all'angolo inferiore delle ultime 70 pp. Bell'esemplare, intonso e in barbe. Charles Irenee Castel de Saint-Pierre abate di Tiron (1658-1743), va annoverato tra i più singolari pensatori di politica economica del Settecento francese. Autore, tra l'altro, di annali politici e di un importante discorso contro l'aumento della moneta ed in favore dei censi annuali, Castel de Saint-Pierre dedicò buona parte delle sue riflessioni ad eleborare un progetto di riforma delle imposizioni fiscali, culminate nel 1723 con la prima stesura di quest'opera, poi rivista ed aumentata più volte fino alla redazione della quinta datata appunto 1739. La "taille" fu concepita originariamente come tassa eccezionale rivolta ai possessori non nobili di terre (tassa proporzionale alla quantità di terra); divenne quindi imposizione permanente a partire dal 1439 e venne considerata, forse non a torto, tra i più detestabili provvedimenti fiscali dell'Ancien Régime. Quest'opera risulta divisa in due parti: nella prima L'A. si propone di teorizzare un calcolo delle tasse in base alle complessive ricchezze di ciascuno (quindi non solo ricchiezze riferibili alla terra); nella seconda vengono formulate numerose osservazioni pratiche e precise risposte alle numerosi obiezioni dottrinali susseguitesi negli anni successivi alla prima stesura. Raro. Cfr. Cat. Einaudi, 151 per altre edizioni; Kvk..

         Plan de Paris, Commencé l'Année 1734. Dessiné et Gravé, sous les ordres de Messire Michel Etienne Turgot

      1739 - - Paris 1739, In-plano, 21Pl., relié. - Edition originale, rare et précieuse, composée d'un plan général découpé en 20 rectangles numérotés et reprenant schématiquement les 20 plans de Paris en perspective qui suivent, soit 21 planches sur double page et sur papier fort, la 18 et la 19 étant liées et dépliantes, et contenant le cartouche avec le titre et les données éditoriales. On pourait s'étonner de la disposition des planches dans le recueil, elles obéissent en fait à un ordre strict. Les planches ont été reliées en suivant le plan général, de gauche à droite ; en les retirant, on recomposerait ainsi aisément en plaçant les planches dans l'ordre, le grand plan de Paris en perspective d'une taille approximative de 2,50 m sur 3 m (chaque planche mesurant environ 50x80cm). Reliure en plein veau marbré et glacé d'époque aux armes de la ville de Paris. Dos à nerfs orné de fleurs de lys, une centrale et quatre en écoinçons. Plats frappés en leur centre des armes de la ville de Paris. Large frise d'encadrement avec fleurs de lys angulaires. Très discrètes et habiles restaurations. Michel Etienne Turgot, Marquis de Sousmont, alors Prévôt des marchands de Paris, cherchant à promouvoir l'image de Paris commissionne Louis Bretez (membre de l'Académie royale de peinture et sculptures et professeur de perpective) pour un nouveau plan de Paris. Bretz commence son travail en 1734. Durant deux années, aidé par l'autorisation de Turgot de pénétrer partout où bon lui semble (jardins, maisons, monuments) il prend des mesures précises. C'est seulement en 1736 qu'il débute la gravure. Les plans de Paris seront établis selon une projection isométrique, réalisant une plus grande précision que les habituelles vues d'oiseaux, et possédant ainsi pour la première fois une nette avancée scientifique dans la manière de graver les plans et un véritable exploit, tous les monuments, jardins et rues étant très exactement représentés, jusque dans de nombreux détails. Le plan en perspective cavalière deviendra si célèbre qu'il prendra le nom de son commanditaire. Très bel exemplaire aux armes de la ville de Paris. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition, rare and precious, composed of a general plan divided into 20 numbered rectangles and schematically repeating the 20 plans of Paris in perspective that follow, 21 boards on double page and on hard paper, the 18 and the 19 being linked and unfolding, and containing the cartridge with title and editorial data. One may be surprised at the arrangement of the boards in the collection, they are in fact obeying a strict order. The planks were connected following the general plan, from left to right; by removing them, it would be easy to recompose by placing the planks in order, the large plane of Paris in perspective of an approximate size of 2.50 m by 3 m (each board measuring about 50x80cm). Binding full marbled and glazed vintage calf weapons of the city of Paris. Back with nerves adorned with lily flowers, a central and four spandrels. Plates struck in their center of arms of the city of Paris. Large frieze framing with angular lily flowers. Very discreet and skilful restorations.

         Treatise of Human Nature

      London: John Noon (vols. 1-2), Thomas Longman (vol. 3), 1739-40 First edition of David Hume's greatest work. Only one thousand copies of the first two volumes were published by John Noon in 1739, and there was almost no public notice. Hume wrote, "It fell dead born from the press, without reaching such distinction, as even to excite a murmur among the zealots." As a result of poor sales, Hume changed publishers, and volume III was issued a year later by Thomas Longman in a reduced printing run. As a result, complete sets of all three volumes are rare. Hume's masterpiece has influenced the course of philosophy for more than 250 years. The Treatise contains Hume's theories of cognition and causation, his treatment of inductive inference, and his analysis of moral judgments, all of which were published here for the first time. His philosophical work delineates a distinct epoch in the evolution of modern philosophical thought, and the "Treatise of Human Nature ... is in every respect the most complete exposition of Hume's philosophical conception" (Ency. Brit. 11th). Kant is said to have exclaimed that Hume was responsible for "waking me out of my dogmatic slumber." Adam Smith wrote of Hume, "Upon the whole, I have always considered him, both in his lifetime and since his death, as approaching as nearly to the idea of a perfectly wise and virtuous man, as perhaps the nature of human frailty will permit." Hume's discussion of the theory of self-interest helped to shape Smith's economic philosophy. Bob McTeer, when President of The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, observed, "David Hume is primarily known as a philosopher ...studying his economic work enables us to see how he reshaped John Locke's quantity of money theory and how he influenced the great Adam Smith, Hume's close friend and fellow Scottish Enlightenment philosopher. Hume is one of the pillars of the classical school of economics, primarily founded by Smith" (FRBD, Economic Insights, Vol. 8 No. 1). Rare in prime collector's condition. Three volumes. Contemporary speckled calf, burgundy morocco labels. Gilt stamping of vol. 1 slightly disparate. Discreet ownership signature on title of first volume. Minor wear to head of spine of vol. 3, minor separation of joints at extremities of vols. 2-3, but a very sound set. Exceptionally clean and crisp. A near fine set in original, untouched condition. Printing and the Mind of Man 194. Rothschild 1171.

         Essai de physique. Avec une description de nouvelles sortes de machines pneumatiques, et un recueil d'expériences

      1739 - 2 volumes en numérotation Leyde, Samuel Luchtmans, 1739, in-4, 2 volumes en numérotation continue, portrait, [2]-XXV-[5]-502 pp. + [2] pp. et reprise de 503 à 914-[32]-[63]-[8] pp, 33 planches et 1 carte, veau glacé de l'époque avec un triple filet doré sur les plats, dos à 5 nerfs ornés de motifs floraux et de pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge et bordeaux, tranches rouges, Première édition française. Ouvrage orné de 33 planches dépliantes gravées sur cuivre et d'une grande carte dépliante montrant les déclinaisons magnétiques terrestres. Les huit dernières pages de cet ouvrage sont en fait une sorte de catalogue intitulé "liste de diverses machines de physique, de mathématique, d'anatomie et de chirurgie", avec les prix indiqués en florins. Ces "machines" se trouvent à Leyde, chez Jan van Musschenbroek, le frère de l'auteur. Pieter van Musschenbroek (1692-1761), professeur de physique à Leyde, était un admirateur de Newton et de la physique de Désaguliers. Pour la rédaction de son ouvrage, il s'inspira fortement de celui de ce dernier, qui avait été publié à Londres en 1725. Initiateur de la physique expérimentale en Hollande, son enseignement était particulièrement recherché pour la qualité de ses démonstrations ; son nom reste attaché à l'invention de la bouteille de Leyde. Rappelons au passage que c'est Musschenbroek et ses élèves qui réalisèrent la célèbre expérience sur le vide, dite "expérience de Leyde". Bien complet du portait replié de l'auteur, au début du premier volume. Bel exemplaire, assez grande de marges portant quelques rares mouillures sur l'extérieur des pages.

         Verses on the Death of Doctor Swift. Written by Himself: Nov. 1731

      London: C. Bathurst, 1739. First edition. [ii], 18 pp. Folio. Modern blue wrappers. Horizontal crease from prior folding, with resulting small tears on title and last leaf, spotting and staining. In custom green cloth chemise. First edition. [ii], 18 pp. Folio. First edition of Swift's poem, which, to cite the heading of p. [3], was occasioned by a maxim of La Rochefoucauld: "Dans l'adversité de nos meilleurs amis nous trouvons quelque chose, qui ne nous deplaist pas." [In the troubles of our dearest friends, we find something which is not altogether displeasing]. On the authority of Dr. William King, to whose oversight Swift entrusted the publication, all three of the first London editions were much abridged and purged of verses King deemed offensive to royalty and religion; in addition, King included 61 lines from "The Life and Genuine Character" of 1733. The Dublin edition of the same year, published by Faulkner, was much more inclusive, and is recognized as the most definitive.

Though he was certainly interested in boosting sales by attracting the widest audience possible, Jacob was an idealist who believed that widespread knowledge of the law would help create a more just society.

         The Gardeners Dictionary: containing the methods of cultivating and improving the kitchen, fruit and flower garden, as also the physick garden, wilderness, conservatory, and vineyard; According to the Practice of the most Experienc'd Gardeners of the Present Age.

      London: Printed for the Author, and sold by C. Rivington, 1737 & 1739 - 2 volumes, folio (345 x 227 mm). Contemporary half calf, raised bands to spine with 2 black labels, marbled sides, endpapers and edges. Bookplate of Sir Joseph Radcliffe to front pastedown in both volumes, ownership inscription of Thomas Percival to title page of vol. 2. Some scuffing to boards, a little wear to extremities and tips, a couple of marks to contents and a few marginal annotations, overall quite clean. A very good set. Engraved frontispiece and 8 plates, 3 folding, printed in double columns, illustrations in text. Third edition of the first comprehensive dictionary of gardening. Philip Miller (1691–1771) was the most distinguished and influential British gardener of the eighteenth century. His dictionary is a noteworthy milestone in the great sequence of encyclopaedias and dictionaries of that era, fit to rank with John Harris's Lexicon Technicum (1704), Chamber's Cyclopaedia (1728), Johnson's Dictionary (1755), the Encyclopaedia Britannica (1768), and ultimately the great French Encyclopédie (1751–1772) of Denis Diderot. Like Harris, Miller was a fellow of the Royal Society. He was a major contributor to Nathan Bailey's Dictionarum Britannicum (1730), which was the initial model for Johnson's Dictionary, and Johnson in turn relied heavily on Miller for his botanical entries. Johnson knew Miller personally: Boswell quotes him repeating Miller's approbation of the technical accuracy of Phillips's Cyder. The Gardeners Dictionary reached eight editions during Miller's lifetime. An appendix dating to 1735 is bound in at the end of this volume. Henrey 217-9.

         A Treatise of Human Nature: Being An Attempt to introduce the experimental Method of Reasoning into Moral Subjects.

      London: John Noon (vol. III Thomas Longman), 1739-40 - 3 volumes, octavo (195 x 122 mm). Rebound to style in modern speckled calf, red and green morocco labels to spines, red morocco roundels on green labels lettered in gilt, compartments ruled in gilt, raised bands tooled with rope-twist roll in gilt, boards double-ruled in black, red sprinkled edges. Contents to Books I and II additionally bound in to the front of volume 2. Corrections neatly made in pencil to contents of volume 1 following errata, 2 faint marginal pencil marks to volume 2. A fine set with very occasional spotting. Engraved head- and tailpieces and initials. First edition of Hume's first great work, rarely found thus, with two of five leaves which Chuo notes as often cancelled in the uncancelled state (A4 and F6 of volume 3). Hume composed the first two books before he was 25 during his three years in France. He returned to London with the finished manuscript by mid-September 1737, but he did not sign articles of agreement with a publisher, John Noon, for another twelve months, and the two volumes finally appeared, anonymously, at the end of January 1739. Already fearing that they would not be well received, Hume had meanwhile begun a third volume, Of Morals, in part a restatement of the arguments of these first two books, which was not published until 5 November 1740 by a different publisher, Thomas Longman. Hume treated the third volume as a discrete work in its own right in so far as he later "cast anew" its contents alone as An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals (1751). As a result of this broken-backed publication history, the three volumes of the Treatise are rarely found together. "The book comes up for sale so seldom that one may doubt whether more than one or two hundred can be extant" (Keynes and Sraffa, in their introduction to Hume's Abstract). Chuo 30; Fieser A.1–3; Jessop, p. 13; Printing and the Mind of Man 194; William B. Todd (ed.), Hume and the Enlightenment (1974), pp. 190–1. [Attributes: First Edition]
