Jerónimo Lobo, a Portuguese Jesuit, travelled to Lake Tana and the Blue Nile, reaching the province of Damot. He was the second European to describe the sources of the Blue Nile and was the leading European expert on Abyssinia / Ethiopia of his day. Like the other Jesuits, he was expelled from the country in 1648. This second edition includes a new preface by the editor, George Gleig, in which he attacks the numerous printer's errors in the 1735 edition. It also includes material not in that edition. The fourth Dissertation is about the mythical Christian ruler Prester John. There are seven "other tracts" by Johnson in the book. Courtney & Smith pp 2-4. (Old former owners' names are James Geddes, Thornhill, 1828, George Sutton, and Thomas Haggart. I believe these men were residents of Ontario.)

The young Boswell's first important publication, "with its reports of the gallant islanders and a Plutarchan depiction of [General Pascal] Paoli paralleled with several classical heroes, it was an immediate success. The work was widely read and translated, stimulated great interest in Paoli and the Corsican cause, brought its author wide fame in Britain and Europe, and found an interested readership among the Americans. It attracted the notice of the French government (which had a translation made), and though Boswell's ambition for British intervention was not to be fulfilled, he probably influenced Britain's decision to send secret supplies of arms to the Corsicans" - ODNB.

The famous plea for religious tolerance in Chapter XV brought on the condemnation of the Sorbonne and the Archbishop of Paris, all but ensuring the book's success. "Bélisaire is a banned 1767 French novel on the life of the Byzantine general Belisarius by Jean-François Marmontel. It popularised the apochryphal tale of his being reduced to beggary by Justinian I despite his great services to the empire, citing it as an example of the ingratitude of those in power towards their faithful servants and indicting the French king Louis XV by proxy as another such ungrateful monarch." - Wikipedia. Marmontel's contributions to the great Encyclopédie, collected as Eléments de Littérature, is still considered a classic of French literature. "John Ruskin named him as one of the three people in history who were the most influential for him. In his autobiography, John Stuart Mill credits Memoires d'un père with curing him of depression." - Wikipedia. A nice copy of this French classic.
