Engraved armorial eighteenth-century bookplate of the Casa da Annunciada library on verso of title page. 144 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Innocêncio states of this work "Escripta quando o auctor contava 23 ou 24 anos de edade, esta oração é um panegyrico eloquente do marquez, por vezes empolado em demasia, mas abundante de considerações mui sisudas e bem desenvolvidas ácerca do estado das sciencias, e das artes em Portugal nos differentes seculos da monarchia. Deve notar-se particularmente o modo como elle fala de Verney, e do seu @Methodo d'estudar, a pag. 137. Posto que os exemplares não sejam raros, gosam comtudo de estimação, e não faltou quem conferisse ao auctor a honrosa qualificação de mestre da lingua portugueza."The author was a career official in the Portuguese ministries of Foreign Affairs and War. He took part in many diplomatic missions, and as late as 1818 was serving as secretary to the Portuguese legation in Vienna. He is said to have died in 1829, age 80. His reputation was that of a man of vast wisdom and incorruptible integrity. @Provenance: Casa da Annunciada library of João Vicente de Saldanha Oliveira Juzarte Figueira e Sousa, 1º Conde de Rio Maior (1746-1804).

Burney's writings on music are legendary; his "Tours and the General History of Music remain wellsprings of observation and insight into 18th-century musical life and practice." Kerry S. Grant in Grove Music Online. His History of Music, which remains of considerable importance today, was the first to be written in the English language. Although but a music teacher with no University degree, Burney moved in the circles of Samuel Johnson, Garrick and Joshua Reynolds. Upon coming to London, Haydn, with whom Burney had had some correspondence, made a point of first calling on Burney.

         Observations concerning the Distinction of Ranks in Society. Under the following heads: I. Of the Rank and Condition of Women in different Ages. II. Of the Jurisdiction and Authority of a Father over his Children. III. Of the Author of a Chief over the members of a Tribe or Village. IV. Of the Power of a Sovereign over an extensive Society. Of the Authority of a Master over his Servants. The Second Edition, greatly enlarged.

      London: Printed for J. Murray. 1773 - 8vo, 211 x 127 mms., pp. [iv], xxii, 312, including half-title, contemporary calf; binding dried, piece of leather missing from lower front corner, joints very slightly cracked. John Millar (1735 - 1801), Professor of Civil Law at the University of Glasgow, is a good example of an author whose reputation flourished during his lifetime, and who thereafter virtually disappeared from the map of intellectual history. Observations concerning the Distinction of Ranks in Society was first published in an attractive quarto by John Murray in London in 1771; a Dublin edition was published in the same year by Thomas Ewing with Murray's consent and collaboration. A second edition, "greatly enlarged," followed in 1773, and for the third edition, "corrected and enlarged" of 1779, Millar revised the title to The Origin of the Distinction of Ranks: Or, An Enquiry into the Circumstances which Give Rise of Influence and Authority in the Different Members of Society. Commenting on the last section, the reviewer for The Monthly Review said, "The performance, indeed, deserves to be read in the Author's own words. The manner in which it is written is agreeable; and the style is in general correct, without stiffness or affectation. From the short analysis of it which we have given, the learned Reader will perceive that this is one of those works which only could be produced in an age superior to prejudices, and guided by the spirit of a free and liberal philosophy." Nothing like self-congratulation to warm the cockles of a reviewer's heart. W. Zachs, The First John Murray (1998) 70. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Cours complet d'anatomie, peint et grave. Pt. I Myologie (all published).

      Nancy Chez Jean-Baptiste-Hyacinthe Leclerc 1773 - First edition. Large folio (64 x 49.5 cm). [iv], 25pp.,of explanatory text, 15 coloured plates, two showing male and female bodies, 13 showing muscles and body structure, each body part numbered, all printed in four colour mezzotint, 1 plate with tear into image repaired, a few plates with light creases, modern calf spine over original marbled boards, new free endleaves, light edge wear, an attractive copy. "These fifteen plates follow a scheme of progress, from the classical figures at the start, to skeletal hands and feet; or we can see it as a strip performance, from fully clad nudes by stages to muscle and bone. The delightful Apollo and Venus starting the theme were of course prepared in four mezzotint plates by Arnauld-Eloi, but painted by a Nancy artist, Jean Girardet, who died five years later. They are certainly stunning examples from neo-classical France, reproduced with sophisticated art by the Gautier Dagoty process" (Franklin, Early Colour Printing pp. 49-50). Garrison Morton describes Gautier's coloured mezzotints as striking. It had been intended that the complete work would consists of five parts but only Pt. 1 seems to have been published (Welcome catalogue). Gautier d'Agoty (c.1715 - 1785) was the assistant and successor to the master painter, engraver and pioneer of colour printing Jacques Christophe le Blon (1670 - 1741). Le Blon had experimented with a three-colour process for colour-printing - following Newton's ground-breaking studies into the formation of colour - but it was Gautier d'Agoty who elevated the art to a higher level with the addition of a fourth black plate which gave the resultant images their superb tonal contrast and artistic depth. After the death of Le Blon, Gautier d'Agoty's refinement of Le Blon's technique aroused controversy until in 1745 he was awarded the exclusive use of his own technique. Although Gautier d'Agoty's anatomical works have been criticised for their lack of anatomical verisimilitude - he was after all an artist - there can be no doubt that his productions, with their artistic composition, magnificent illuminating colour and haunting facial expressions are extraordinary examples of a visionary artist displaying his abilities to the utmost.

De 1773 à 1774, Beaumarchais fit paraître 4 mémoires dans lesquels il met en scène son aventure judiciaire (on voit qu'il avait choisi de se représenter lui-même). Ces 4 mémoires qui mêlent dialogues et interrogatoires divertirent le tout Paris, jusqu'à Madame Du Barry, et furent joués un peu partout dans les cafés et sur les boulevards, car ils constituent une formidable comédie dans laquelle le mensonge finit par être dévoilée. Beaumarchais sera en effet élargi dans l'affaire qui l'opposa au juge Goezman ; ce dernier était rapporteur à son procès dans l'héritage Paris-Duverney qui ruina et deshonora l'auteur. Beaumarchais accusa de corruption Goezman et le juge accusa en retour Beaumarchais de diffamation et tentative de corruption. Le juge Goezman constitue surtout un symbole de la corruption du nouveau Parlement érigé par Louis XV, et de l'arbitraire de la justice.

       4°, 3 Seiten, Papier etwas gebräunt Heinroth (1773-1843), bekannt als erster Lehrstuhlinhaber für Psychiatrie (\"Psychische Heilkunde\") überhaupt, war zur Zeit der Abfassung deses Briefes zwar Professor der Medizinischen Fakultät, aber immer wieder auch in Geldnot. Er hatte im Februar 1833 beim Rat der Stadt um eine feste Anstellung im St. Georgenhaus gebeten, was aber ebenso abgelehnt wurde wie eine reguläre Gehaltserhöhung (Steinberg/Angermeyer, 200 Jahre Psychiatrie in Leipzig, p. 26). Hier ein bewegender Brief in wohl äußerster Geldnot. Heinroth weigert sich, einen Ring, den er schon einmal für 200 Taler ins Pfandhaus gegeben hatte, für 150 Taler zu verkaufen, sieht aber andererseits keine Möglichkeit, seine Schulden bei dem Adressaten zu bezahlen: \"... Aber wie nun? Herr Hilliger verlangt zu Ende dieses Monats die Rückzahlung des Capitals? Dieses zu leisten ist mir schlechterdings unmöglich ...\". - Sehr persönliches Dokument aus der Biographie des ersten Hochschullehrers der Psychiatrie weltweit Versand D: 5,00 EUR Psychiatrie, Psychiatriegeschichte, Leipzig, St. Georgenhaus, signiert

The main objective of the expedition was to observe the "Transit of Venus" at Tahiti and secondly to search for a Great Southern Continent. The expedition entered the Pacific around Cape Horn and sailed to Tahiti where the observations of the Venus were made, then the voyage continued to the Society Islands, and after that New Zealand was explored and also the eastern coast of Australia (New South Wales). As stated above, Cook was the first to confirm that New Zealand was, in fact, an island. Hawkesworth's account was an immediate success and aroused much interest in the Pacific throughout Europe. Captain Cook was promoted to the rank of Commander, and in the following year he set out in command of the Resolution heading once more to the Pacific. The first volume of Hawkesworth account covers the voyages by John Byron , Captain Wallis and Captain Carteret. Primary credit for the creation of this account is given to John Hawkesworth who had been commissioned by the Admiralty to edit Capt. Cook's papers. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         A CONTINUATION OF THE NARRATIVE OF THE INDIAN CHARITY SCHOOL, BEGUN IN LEBANON, IN CONNECTICUT; NOW INCORPORATED WITH DARTMOUTH-COLLEGE, IN HANOVER, IN THE PROVINCE OF NEW-HAMPSHIRE

      New-Hampshire [i.e. Portsmouth], 1773. Gathered signatures, stitched. Institutional ink stamp on titlepage. Contemporary manuscript notes on titlepage (noting the scope of the work), and in a few instances in the text. A bit of foxing and tanning. Very good. Untrimmed. The sixth of eight pamphlets published by Wheelock between 1763 and 1775, documenting his history of the first Indian school in America. The series began with his A PLAIN AND FAITHFUL NARRATIVE OF THE ORIGINAL DESIGN... (Boston, 1763), which covered 1754 to 1762. The school, founded by Wheelock, opened in 1754 under the name of the Moors Charity School. In 1772 it was removed to Hanover "where it formed the germ of the institution, known as Dartmouth College" (Field). This tract describes the progress made at Dartmouth College from May 6, 1771 to September 10, 1772. Wheelock begins with an account of the first buildings to be erected: "I have now finished, (that is so far as to render comfortable and decent) the building there mentioned to accommodate my students, of 80, by 32 feet; and have done it in the plainest and cheapest manner, which furnishes 16 comfortable rooms besides a kitchen, hall and store- room." Other constructions included a saw-mill, a grist- mill, and two barns: "I have also raised, and expect within a few days to finish a malt house of 30 feet square, and several other lesser buildings which were found necessary; I have also clear'd, and in a good measure fitted for improvement about 70 or 80 acres of land, and seeded with English grain about 20 acres last fall; from which I have taken at the late harvest, what was esteemed a good crop considering the land was so lately laid open to the sun." At the end is an interesting appendix, dated September 26, 1772, in which Wheelock describes a visit made by one of his colleagues, Mr. Ripley, to a tribe of Indians at Lorett (or Loretto), near Quebec, to recruit new students for his school. Ripley's proposal to the tribal chiefs was deemed acceptable: "In consequence of which determination, nine of their boys were made ready to accompany Mr. Ripley hither; three of which were children or descendants from captives, who had been captivated when they were young, and lived with them 'till they were naturalized and married among them. One was a descendant from the Rev. Mr. Williams who was captivated from Deerfield in 1704, but the boy was taken sick with the measles, and thereby his coming was prevented; but may be expected in the spring. Another was a descendant from Mr. Tarbull, who was captivated from Groton, in the year 1700, who is now a hearty and active man, and the eldest chief, and chief speaker of the tribe. He expressed great affection to his relations in New-England, sent his love to them, and desired they might be informed he had a grandson at the school. The other was son to Mr. Stacey, who was captivated from Ipswich, and is a good interpreter to that tribe. They all arrived safe and in health on that day fortnight, after they sat [sic] out from Caghnewaga, and appeared to be very glad 'that they had got home,' as they expressed it." There are two issues of this pamphlet, from the same setting of type; in the other the titlepage is dated 1772. Daniel and Robert Fowle were the only printers active in Portsmouth in this period.
