First edition second issue of volumes one to four, which are a translation of Prévost’s ‘Le philosophe anglais: ou l’histoire de Mr. Cleveland, fils naturel de Cromwel’ the first two volumes of which were first published at Paris in 1731-2 (though Gove, p.282, speculates that the English edition may have appeared first); first edition of volume five, which is not by Prévost, but is a translation of the spurious continuation published by Neaulme of Utrecht in 1734. Originally planned for issue in three volumes, as is shown by the word ‘Finis’ at the end of volume three, the first four volumes were published in 1731-2 with the imprint ‘London: Printed for N. Prevost in the Strand’, and in that issue volume two had 10pp. integral advertisements at the end, which are here excised. That the present issue consists of the same sheets with cancel titles is shown by the chain-lines which run vertically on the initial advertisement leaf in volume one, on the first four title leaves, and the last leaf of volume two (which has added Errata) but horizontally elsewhere. The advertisement of this title in volume four adds between ‘Oliver’s History and Amours’ and ‘never before made publick’ the words ‘and several remarkable Particulars in the Reign of King Charles II’. Most of the second volume is concerned with the affairs of an island surrounded by jagged rocks and high cliffs, in the hidden interior of which presbytarian refugees from la Rochelle have established a communistic society intended, according to their ideas, to be Utopian: “of the three principal passions which infest the heart of man, we have found out the art of suppressing two of them,” declares one of the Elders: “The equality which is established among us secures us from ambition, and the uselessness of riches has cured us of avarice. Love is the only passion for which we cannot find a remedy. Our young girls pine away, and it is a most melancholy circumstance that we can neither root out this passion from their hearts, nor ease them of their pain.” This is because “some noxious quality either in the air or in the soil” causes a genetic peculiarity as a result of which there is a vast imbalance in point of births of girl children over boys. The Elders attempt to remedy this by importing youg men, but the resulting passions and jealousies lead to the destruction of the whole. ESTC, T127130 (vols. I — IV) and T127129 (vol. V); NCBEL, 2: 1526; Gove, pp.279 — 284; McBurney, 265a. Copac records the British Library copy only of the original issue, and the British Library, Oxford and Birmingham copies only of this, though several libraries have the first four volumes, and two list separate records of volume five. In volume four of this copy the ‘04’ of the number to p.204 has slightly dropped, p.256 is mispaged ‘156’, and p.280 ‘180’; in volume five, p.239 is mispaged ‘39’, pp.286 and 287 are mispaged ‘284’ and ‘285’, and B3 is mis-signed ‘B2’; on p.93 the ‘y’ of the catchword ‘necessary’ is lacking.

A scarce epistolary fiction cashing in on the contemporary vogue for Gothic novels by pretending to be one. It is in fact a social novel, with a melodramatic, rationalised occult, sub-plot grafted on; but concerned more largely with reform: duelling, education, etiquette as it affects women, etc. Notably, it includes a sympathetically presented African, and anti-slavery reflections relative to the West Indies. COPAC records only the Glasgow, Aberdeen, British Library, and Oxford copies. The British Library copy collates as ours. ESTC T71903; NCBEL, 2: 678; Summers, ‘Gothic Bibliography’, pp.2 and 511. Summers lists the book as by Charles Andrews, who is one of the characters, conceivably because of the coincidence of this with the name of the dedicatee, James Petit Andrews. Oxford lists it as by Pye, two of whose other works are advertised in the publisher’s catalogue at the end. The missing frontispiece is reproduced, somewhat enlarged, facing p.50 of another of Summers’ books, ‘The Gothic Quest’.

[RUTLEDGE (Jean Jacques).] The Englishman’s Fortnight In Paris; Or, The art of ruining himself There in a few days. By an Observer. Translated from the French. London: Printed for T. Durham, at Charing-Cross, and G. Kearsly, at No.46, in Fleet-Street, 1777. [Fist] This Work may be had of the above Booksellers in French, printed from the Paris Edition, which was sup- Pressed in that Country.
Demy 8vo in half sheets; half-title not present, probably not called for; text-paper binder’s blank before title; editorial Advertisement leaf precedes author’s Preface; [?]integral blank at end; [ ]2, A-I, K-U, X-Z, Aa-Ee4, Ff3 (or 4); pp.[2]+x+222+[ii (?iv)]; modern half natural calf, marbled sides. A very little light foxing or marking more or less confined to margins; short tear in upper margin of leaf Ee2, not touching text, and repaired without the use of tissue; a very nice copy, nonetheless, prettily rebound in period style.

Translated (possibly by Rutledge himself, who was bi-lingual) from “La Quinzaine Angloise á Paris” published in France in 1776, and promptly suppressed. Paris on a thousand pounds a day! — Prostitution, gambling, horse-racing, drunkenness — art, philosophy, politics — the debtor’s prison — A well-balanced novel that would to-day be called extremely well-researched, giving a convincing insider’s view of many of the tricks and ploys of the ‘pigeon-plucker’s’ trade as well as some picture of what the hero might have experienced had the vanity and gullibility of his eighteen years not been so very great: told in the first person by a young English Lord. Beautifully readable, and great fun — albeit the translation is a somewhat styleless one. A copy of the 1777 French language edition referred to in the note on the title-page here, that once was in the collection of John Fowles, contained an early note that: “all the Characters are real & were well known at the time” and also a manuscript key giving the real identities of fifteen characters. NCBEL, 2: 1531, citing only a Dublin printing; Block, p.69 records it (from a single bookseller’s listing only) as an anonymous fiction, though on p.203, under Rutledge he records its sequel: “The Adventures of Monsieur Provence, Gentleman to Lord R --, the Hero of the Englishman’s Fortnight at Paris", 2 Vols., 1788: also from a single bookseller’s listing; ESTC, N31079. On p.159 of this copy the catchword reads ‘replies’ for ‘replied’, possibly as always.

In the publisher’s Avertissement preceeding the start of the text it is somewhat disingenuously remarked: “On ne sauroit dire précisément, si c’est un Roman, ou une Histoire qu’on donne ici au Publique: on n’en peut juger par la maniére [sic] dont cette Piéce est tombée entre les mains du Libraire; car il n’a aucune rélation avec l’Auteur, & ceux qui la lui ont donnée, ne lui ont fourni aucune lumiére [sic] sur ce sujet.” The imprint also, however, is fictitious. An English translation appeared in 1700 “Translated from the French Original, Printed at Cologne in the Year 1699” under the title “The French Spy", with a translation of the present title as subtitle (McBurney, 3). McBurney goes on to cite “Cologne: Pierre Marteau, 1698” for the original edition. The date 1698 comes from a reference to the volume in a letter by Bayle dated the 4th of December in that year, but no copy with that date on its title-page has ever been traced, and it seems certain that the copy referred to by Bayle will have been published in 1698 but (very sensibly) dated ahead. Sandras specialised in fictive biographies in which he drew his material from real life, but made use of the contemporary novel form and filled out the narrative with embellishments and anecdotes. His nine works of this kind represent a half-way stage between authentic memoirs and the life-stories of purely imaginary characters, the best remembered of which to-day, his ‘Memoires de Monsieur d’Artagnon, capitaine lieutenant de la Première Compagnie des Mousquetaires du Roi’, first published in three volumes in 1700, inspired the Dumas novels in which that character appears. Bourgeois & André, II, 756.

An epistolary novel, published pseudonymously, as allegedly written by an Anglicised Italian Jesuit, “whose long residence in England and analytical nature had endowed him with the insight and neutrality to develop a sweeping analysis of the decline of the English constitution, morals, manners, and culture under the corrupt rule of the Whigs. The selection of a Jesuit as a narrative persona encouraged allegations that Shebbeare was a Jacobite at heart, prompting the Whig antiquary Thomas Birch to revile the Letters as ‘a Book, which an Englishman and a Protestant must detest.’” — M. John Cardwell, DNB.. Although Shebbeare began adult life as a physician and chemist, in the 1740s he became closely involved in politics, and in 1754 embarked on a career as a writer. His first novel, The Marriage Act, was prompted by his objection to a passage in the 1753 Marriage Act. His growing engagement with politics during the 1750s was emphasised by publication of the present novel. Aspects of English life observed by Shebbeare include the cleanliness of English and French women compared, Welsh customs, academies of painting and sculpture, the effects of printing, English taste in architecture, theatrical writers, David Garrick, etc. It was this book that allowed Boswell to profess that Shebbeare deserved respect in London’s literary circles after he was imprisoned for his political writings.

One of the better-known novels, by a prolific author. Cast in epistolary form, and favouring the spirit of the French Revolution. The Preface, on the same half-sheet as the Errata, was evidently the last part of the book to be printed (apart possibly from the inserted quarter sheet H* in volume three), and is dated ‘June 20, 1791’, which suggests that the book was almost certainly issued in the second half of that year and dated ahead. CBEL, II, p.550; NCBEL, 2: 684; ESTC, T73500; Black, 736; Block, p.220; Hardy, 257; Summers, p.185; Baker (1932) p.440. In this copy there is no risen furniture after the last line of text on K1v in volume one; B6 in volume three is signed B5; N11r has the catch-word ‘Dasmond’ for ‘Desmond’, probably as always.

Smollett’s first novel, and third published work, of which 2,000 copies in all were printed, in January 1748 (v. ‘The Library’ 4th Ser., XII (1932), p.282). The first state of text, with I9 not cancelled in volume one, and Locke’s name present in l.22r. I7v bears the press letter ‘P’, rather than ‘1’, as recorded of some copies. As in Rothschild’s copy of this issue, there is no final blank in volume two, the final leaf being a single inset. Rothschild does not record the cancel E4 in volume two, which may suggest that an error in the cancellandum was corrected early in the printing, before it was decided to remove Locke’s name from I9r. L4 in volume one is here signed K4, this also not noticed by Rothschild, though he does note that A2 in that volume is signed ‘A’. Rothschild, 1906; Block, p.221; NCBEL, 2: 962; ESTC, T55366.

Each volume with the ownership inscription and armorial bookplate of Sir Joseph Sawle Graves Sawle, Bart.

This passage occurs in the ‘Memoirs of A Lady of Quality’ which their authoress, Frances Anne, Viscountess Vane, paid Smollett to insert: the alteration probably being made at her request. P.134 in volume two is mis-paged 144, p.279 in volume three is mispaged 297, and pp.304-5: probably as always. Chapter LXVII in volume two contains an early reference to signage.

A fine binding in virtually fine state, but not signed. The state of text in which the title-page is dated to the actual year of issue, MDCCLXIX. Another state exists in which it is dated MDCCXLIX and this is usually assumed to represent the earlier state of text on the grounds that a correct date would not have been altered to an incorrect one. The date MDCCXLIX, however, may or may not have been an error since the supposed ‘Advertisement From the Publisher to the Reader’ mentions “the 7th of March, in the present year 1748” as the date at which the manuscript was offered to the publisher, and one could imagine — particularly with this sort of book — a humorous pre-dating, ‘MDCCXLIX’ for ‘MDCCLXIX’, as being the intent. If this were so, it is at least as likely that the date was ‘corrected’ to the actual date of issue by a typesetter, either on the assumption of mistake or through a natural enough misreading, before printing began — and then changed back to the intended date during the course of the print run — as it is that at some point in the print run the date ‘MDCCXLIX’ was noticed, thought to be a mistake, and altered then. In the absence of further evidence, it would seem to be impossible to decide which state of text was in fact the earlier. In this copy, however, the following errata and typographical flaws have been noted (state or issue significance also undetermined): in Vol.I., p.31, l.9, ‘Fika-kika’ for ‘Fika-kaka’, and l.19, risen space before ‘sub’; p.33, l.16, ‘p’ of ‘portion’ dropped; p.38, l.10, ‘heard’ for ‘beard’, and last line, ‘Fika-ka’ for ‘Fika-kaka’; p.53, last line, ‘adornedw     th’ for ‘adorned with’; p.101, penultimate line, ‘ski     l’ for ‘skill’; p.111, l.1, ‘Gothama-’ for ‘Got-hama-’, and in penultimate line, ‘Gotha-’ for ‘Got-ha-’; p.166, l.13, ‘irs’ for ‘its’; p.171, l.19, ‘m’ of ‘mall’ dropped; p.184, l.3, ‘goblets’ for ‘gobbets’ (probably); p.207, l.3, space between ‘u’ and ‘t’ in ‘reputation’; p.218, l.21, ‘w’ of ‘was’ slightly raised; in Vol.II., half-title, ‘D’ lacking from ‘AND’; p.1, antepenultimate line, ‘e’ of ‘some’ almost lacking; p.70, last line, ‘shit-tilk’ for ‘shi-tilk’; p.132, l.10, ‘pa’ of ‘paign’ slightly dropped; p.182, l.7, ‘Lleynah’ for ‘Lley-nah’. A vicious satire on contemporary British public affairs, with a science-fantasy frame and some minor science fantasy content in the action (such as a sex-change). Rothschild, 1923 and 1924, listing two copies of the ‘1749’ issue; NCBEL, 2: 963; ESTC, T55310; Bleiler, (1948), pp.25 and 254, listing only the Dublin edition; not in Clute and Nichols or Locke’s ‘Spectrum’.

The first volume, apart from the first gathering, is typographically distinct from the second one: a fact that is explained by it consisting of sheets having been originally issued in 1702, whilst the whole of the second volume is now first published. The sheets of the first volume are here reissued as originally printed except that the Table of Contents has been suppressed and the address ‘To the Impartial Reader’ has been reprinted together with the new, updated, title-page. Imagination applied to history, largely in an anecdotal form: a somewhat curious hybrid, but included in McBurney’s ‘Check List of English Prose Fiction’ under 1725, as item 170. He does not record the 1702 issue, or the further re-issue made in 1730. In typesetting the first volume the printer evidently lost some of his copy: the inserted gatherings (Tt) and (Ttt) forming the first pp.289 — 320 were the result. In the present copy, besides the reduplicated page numbers noticed above, p.260 in volume one is misnumbered 250, and p.304, 404; the page numbers (but not the text) to pp.362, 363 and 366, 367 have been swapped; in volume two, p.220 is misnumbered 20. Not in NCBEL; ESTC, T177202, listing copies at Cambridge (2), Cashel Cathedral Library, and Edinburgh University in Great Britain; and eight copies elsewhere.

The present copy has errata corrected in ink on pp.48 and 97 in volume one (l.10, deletion of word before ‘attached’; last line, ‘a’ inserted after ‘When’); and on p.33 in volume two (penultimate line, ‘myself’ substituted for ‘himself’).

[SWIFT (Jonathan)]. [Title to first volume:] Travels Into several Remote Nations Of the World. In Four parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain Of several Ships. To which are prefix’d, Several Copies of Verses Expla- Planatory [sic] and Commendatory; never be- Fore printed. Vol. I. The Second Edition. London: Printed for Benj. Motte, at the Middle Temple Gate in Fleet-street, 1727. [Title to second volume:] Travels Into several Remote Nations Of the World. By Captain Lemuel Gulliver. Part III. A Voyage to Laputa, Balnibarbi, Glubbdubdrib, Luggnagg and Japan. Part IV. A Voyage to the Houyhnhnms. Vol.II. The Second Edition, Corrected. London: Printed for Benjamin Motte, at the Middle- Temple-Gate, 1727.
Four parts in two volumes, bound in one (in fact as issued), each part separately paginated and with separate prelims; separate title present to each volume; fly-titles present to Parts one, two, and four (none called for to part three); engraved portrait frontispiece and two maps in volume one; three engraved maps and one diagram in volume two; integral advertisement leaf precedes title-page in volume two; [A]1, a2-7, b4, *2, A2-7, B-I, K-U8, X4, Y1; [ ]1, A3, B-I, K8, L4, M2; 2A4, 2B-2I, 2K-2N8, 2O4; pp.[i-ii]+[24 (unpaginated)]+[iii]-xii+148+[vi (unpaginated)]+164; [viii (unpaginated)]+155+[i (blank)]+[viii (unpaginated)]+199+[i (blank)]. Victorian full sheep, oil-marbled end-papers; edges burnished scarlet. Front board lacking; chip in blank fore-margin of portrait, not approaching printed area; small hole at inner margin of leaf B7 in volume one affecting three letters of text; blank corner of I3 in same volume chipped, not affecting text; two or three leaves towards start of volume one, and towards end of second volume a little foxed in margins; otherwise a nice large copy.

US $1,202.80


Second Edition, with corrections and additions (the fore-matter to volume one being here first added), with the Second Edition title leaves to both parts (many copies of the Second Edition having been issued with the first edition title leaves), and with the frontispiece portrait (which is sometimes lacking). The frontispiece in this copy is in the third state (Teerinck, 2a), having the inscription round the medallion frame of the portrait and two lines of Perseus beneath, and chain lines in the paper which run vertically. Corresponds to the British Library copy bearing the shelf-mark 12612.d.22, except that the two leaves signed ‘*’, inserted after leaf b4 in volume one, are not present in the British Library copy. These, which contain the thirty lines of verse headed ‘The Words of the King of Brobdingnag    .    .    .’, are on paper of a slightly darker colour than the bulk of the volume, resembling that on which the plates are printed: they were added to later-issued copies of the volume. Leaves B7, C3 and C4 in the same volume are on similar paper, and would appear to be cancels or possibly added from another copy. NCBEL, 2: 1062, recording this edition as issued ‘2 vols in 1’; ESTC, T139025; Teerinck-Scouten, 293, erroneously recording the first inserted gathering in volume one as being signed ‘22-7’, having mis-read a damaged ‘a’; he also records the Roman pagination as being in upper instead of lower case letters, which it has not been in any copy we have seen; Rothschild, 2108. Rothschild, 2104, note, records that “The text of the first edition [of 1726] was heavily ‘edited’ by the publisher, Motte, and contains many inaccuracies. Although in his covering letter to Motte, pseudonymously signed ‘Richard Sympson’, Swift appeared to sanction cuts for prudential reasons, he strongly objected to the ‘mangled’ version which appeared in print. At Swift’s request [Charles] Ford prepared a list of errata which was sent to Motte [in a letter dated January 3rd, 1727], and resulted in nearly all the minor corrections being made in the second edition of 1727, though the cuts and alterations remained.” The prefatory verses are now thought to be by Pope.

TREYSSAC DE VERGY (P[ierre].H[enri].). The Lovers: Or, The Memoirs of Lady Sarah B-- and the Countess P--. Printed for the Editor and Sold by J. Roson, No. 54, St. Martin’s le Grand; and all the Booksellers in Great Britain, 1769.
Lge.post 8vo; two copper engraved plates; [A]6, B-I, K-P8, Q2; pp.vi+[xi]-xv+[i (blank)]+227+[i (blank)]; contemporary full natural calf tooled gilt on edges of boards, spine with five raised bands, red lettering-piece. Joints firm but with some cracking of the calf; a little scattered foxing, mostly very light, but text in general nice.


GB £480.00

US $595.20


Signed ‘De Vergy’ at the foot of the title-page in faded ink — though we are unable to guarantee that the signature is the author’s. A very readable — and sometimes philosophical — epistolary novel based upon contemporary scandal, also, according to Summers, dealt with in The Unhappy Wife’ of 1770: Lady Sarah B-- being Lady Sarah Bunbury. The volume might well have appeal for the modern women’s movement: “Men have ordered that the ‘woman who has a NOBODY for her husband,’” writes the Countess P-, “‘and does not prefer him to a lord WILLIAM, should be a disgrace to her sex.’ — Who among those polite and discreet [sic] legislators would prefer a deformed wife to a beautiful mistress? None. Why then do the fools require from us what next to death they hate to perform? Put that question to them, they will laugh; so will I at their impertinent law.” — p.17, and: “The gratification of the senses, when on fire by the involuntary passions of the heart, who can condemn? Were it not extravagant to punish a blind man for falling into an abyss!” — p.122. But it also puts another point of view: “’Tis not lady Sarah’s person, my lord,” the husband of Sarah B- writes, “but her sensibility I really adore — not the wife but the friend I regret. In her society the dull hours of life slip unfelt away — she talks, pleasure fills my heart — with her the laborious days of a courtier end in evenings of delight.” — p.153. A second series, entitled ‘The Lovers; or the Memoirs of Lady Mary Sc-- and the Hon Amelia B--.’ was published in 1772; and a third series was advertised also for that year, though it may never have appeared. The curious pagination of the prelims. is certainly correct, as is proven by offsetting — and there is no interruption of the sense — the printer having evidently allowed for a full sheet, whilst the dedication, pp.[v]-vi, was set last: the two ‘missing’ leaves being utilised in the meantime as gathering ‘Q’. There is no list of plates, but they are marked to face pp.68 and 208, and are here so bound in. This title not in CBEL or NCBEL; COPAC records copies at the British Library (which they claim to have mislaid), National Library of Scotland, Oxford, Cambridge, and Edinburgh; ESTC, T115338 adds UCLA, Huntington, Yale, N.C., Ohio, University of Pennsylvania, and Rice; Block, p.239, Summers, p.393, giving differing incorrect versions of the title-page; not in Rothschild. The plates are marked to face pp.68 and 208 and are here so bound in. In this copy the following erratum and typographical flaws have been noted: (state or issue significance, if any, undetermined) p.xii, l.2, raised ‘t’ at start of line; p.33, catchword, risen shoulders to dash; p.34, l.18, first ‘I’ slightly dropped; antepenultimate line, ‘I’ slightly dropped; penultimate line, ‘I’ slightly raised (other examples on p.35); p.47, l.1, ‘overly’ for ‘loverly’; p.59, ll.5, 14, 18, and 20 ‘I’ very raised; penultimate line, ‘I’ slightly dropped; p.66, l.5, ‘a m’ for ‘am’; square bracket before the page number to p.99 reversed; p.[122], irregular type in first word of text; p.160, penultimate line, risen space at start; p.173, l.1, dash lacking after ‘Mrs. D’ and comma; p.184, l.1, raised furniture before start of line; p.202, risen space rule after last line; p.223, l.16, closing inverted comma at start.

[VICTOR (Benjamin).]. The Widow Of the Wood. London: Printed for C. Corbett, opposite St. Dunstan’s Church in Fleet-Street, 1755.
12mo; half-title present; A4, B-I12, K8; pp.[4]+[iv (last page blank)]+208; contemporary full calf, spine with five raised bands and lettering piece, ruled and tooled gilt on sides and spine, edges ruled gilt, gilt inner dentelles; a.e.g.; marbled end-papers. Lettering piece lacking, and joints just a little rubbed; old, barely visible, repairs to tears in fore-margins of leaves I10 and K8, without loss of text, the first at least due to an original paper fault; otherwise a fine copy.

Without the inserted advertisement leaf for the 1755 state lottery present at the end in some copies. The first and last signatures are on slightly thicker paper than the rest of the book in this copy, and were evidently printed conjugate. A scandal-novel that is said to have given such offence to members of the family of Sir William Wolseley that they acted to destroy every copy that they could obtain. ESTC lists four states or issues, suggesting no priority: the first with ‘St.’ in the address on the title in Italics, with a squirrel ornament beneath the title, and an ornament with a bust surrounded by scroll-work on p.206; the second as the first, but with the ‘St.’ in Roman face; the third as the first, but with the ornament on p.206 involving an urn and two birds; and the fourth as the third, but with the title-page having an ornament with flowers. The present copy corresponds to the third of the variants listed above. CBEL, II, p.545; NCBEL, 2: 998; ESTC, T74394 (this issue); Block, p.244; not in Rothschild.

Set for an Imp.32mo format, and printed on large paper. Lively, scurrilous, fictionalised memoirs first published in French at Cologne in 1675, and here making their first appearance in English. The ‘Reasons of her Coming into England’ and the ‘Letter containing a True Character of her Person and Conversation’ are additions by Porter, the French text having ended with her coming to reside at Chambéry.
