Much misunderstood by his Augustan contemporaries, many of whom declared his book pernicious, Mandeville turned his physician's eye upon his society's health, and found that it thrived everywhere upon individual corruptions. His analyses of the role of social ideals and personal impulses in human motivation are as stimulating today as they were in his time, and those who believe that the political morality of Machiavelli is still alive today cannot ignore the pungent social criticism of Mandeville, his kindred spirit"--Introduction.

The collection includes a letter from John Sidney Hawkins to William Wilkins describing a volume, to be published, of a history of St. Stephen's Chapel. Another letter, from Philip Morant to Andrew Cortee Ducarel, gives advice about researching the Augmentation Office through old records in the Receipt of the Exchequer and the Cottonian Library; and two letters by Charles Vallancey discuss ancient Irish and Arab history. The volume also contains letters on other subjects: one letter from Henry Baker requests his correspondent to send him details of a recent earthquake in Northampton so that he can enter a record of it with the Royal Society; another letter discusses calculations of annuities; and one entry consists of biographical notes on John Nichols, accompanied by an engraved portrait of him11ocn318644369bookTonson, JacobPapers of Jacob TonsonManuscriptsMaterials written by or to Jacob Tonson I or Jacob Tonson II, with a handful of bills addressed to Jacob Tonson III. Autograph manuscripts by prominent literary figures such as John Dryden, Aphra Behn, Richard Bentley, Joseph Addison, William Congreve, and John Vanbrugh as well as letters from others, chiefly members of the Kit-Cat Club. The correspondence is representative of both Tonson's professional and personal activities: several letters concern gathering engravings and subscriptions for a fine edition of Caesar's Commentaries (ultimately published by Samuel Clarke), while others thank Tonson for his gifts of cider. Transcripts of 10 letters from Alexander Pope concern Lewis Theobald's Shakespeare. Correspondents: Joseph Addison, Roger de Coverley (pseud.?), Francis Atterbury, William Congreve, S.
