HOBBES, THOMAS
Leviathan Or the Matter, Forme, and Power of a Commonwealth Ecclesiasticall and Civill
. by Thomas Hobbes, of Malmesbury. Oxford: James Thornton, High Street. 1881, [9] 573, + 12pp. publisher's catalogue. orig. green cloth, gilt title on spine, top/bottom spine sl. frayed and bent annot in ink on reverse of last e.p. and page opposite half title and here and there in the text, edges and corners of binding sl. worn. Copy comes from the archive of our bookshop. James Thornton was a cousin, his publishing house eventually merged with the bookshop.
The work concerns the structure of society and legitimate government, and is regarded as one of the earliest and most influential examples of social contract theory.[4] Leviathan ranks as a classic western work on statecraft comparable to Machiavelli's The Prince. Written during the English Civil War (1642 - 1651), Leviathan argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and the brute situation of a state of nature ("the war of all against all") could only be avoided by strong undivided government.

The ornaments are those used by Henry Woodfall. Illustrated with numerous engravings and diagrams. Keill, John 1671-1721, mathematician and astronomer, was born in Edinburgh.. He was the deputy to Dr. Millington, Sedleian professor at Oxford, and seems to have joined Christ Church (ib. ii. 26). His lectures were from the first highly successful. They were printed in 1701 under the title "Introductio ad Veram Physicam " and became well known on the continent. Halley is said to have pointed out numerous errors in the first edition, but in a friendly manner. (ib. i. 90). The book was first published in Latin in 1701 Two additional lectures and many corrections were introduced into the second edition, published at Oxford in 1705. Other editions appeared in London in 1715, and at Cambridge in 1741. In a translation into English, published in 1736, Maupertuis, who suggested the venture, appended his theory of the ring of the planet Saturn. The "Introductio" was considered Keill"s "best performance" and it was generally welcomed as an excellent introduction to the "Principia" of Newton He was much Newton's client in the priority dispute with Leibniz. One of few Newton supporters with High Church patronage he was crucial in fighting Cartesianism and mechanical thinking, stating natural theology should be subordinated to the Scripture. His lectures were well regarded with the first translation into English. In a new polished cloth binding with the central leather panel of trhe original binding preserved and recessed in the front board (see image).

O'TOOLE, L.M. [PADDY] AND ANN SHUKMAN (EDS.)
General Semiotics (Russian Poetics in Translation Volume 3)
. Oxford, Holdan Books, 1976,82pp. paperback. Contents: Modelling significance of the concepts "end" and "beginning" in artistic texts / Yu. M. Lotman ; translated by Wendy Rosslyn --Logico-semiotic level of proverbs and sayings: towards a classification of the genre / G. Permyakov ; translated by Doris Bradbury --Stage setting, artistic space and time in the folk theatre / P.G. Bogatyrev ; translated by L.M. O'Toole --On the cosmological origins of early historical descriptions / V.N. Toporov ; translated by Christopher English. In the mid-1970s, with the establishment of the Neo-Formalist Circle in Britain and the publication of a number of international anthologies of and commentaries on the Russian Formalist theorists of the period 1916-1932, it became clear that this important school of literary theory and criticism was only sketchily known to scholars unable to read Russian. The editors, Ann Shukman and Michael O'Toole, published in English ten volumes (80-120pp. each) of the key Formalists: Eikhenbaum, Tynyanov, Shklovsky, Brik, Jakobson, Tomashevsky, Yarkho, Bernstein, Freidenberg, Bogatyrev and Vinogradov on poetry, prose genres, dramatic structure and cinema.Since the Soviet suppression of Formalist theorizing in the early 1930s, it was left to the Bakhtin School of discourse theory and the Prague School of Structuralists to continue the best of their enterprises until the emergence of the Russian Structuralist theorists of the 1960s to 80s, such as Lotman, Zholkovsky, Scheglov, Toporov, Gasparov, Tarlinskaya and Permyakov, who have continued to influence theories of literature, cinema, language and culture worldwide.
