Osbeck's journal contains interesting observations on the languages, cultures and domestic economy of the area's he visited, but the work's main value lies in the sections on foreign plants and fish, depicted in the engravings. The book opens with a preface by Osbeck, dated Stockholm, 25 April 1757, followed by Osbeck's journal of his voyage to Java and China. Included on page 312 is a letter from Linnaeus to Osbeck.

        'Whereas it is found by experience that ye number and consequently the question of the poore within the easterne parte of the county of Kent is already exceeding great and will, if not remedied beome intolerable to the great range of inhabitants as well as distresse of the poor themselves for want of workhouses to sett their poor to work and a sufficient authority to compel them thereunto for remedy whereof.'

      [1723?] This appears to be a manuscript draft proposal, written on 7 folio sheets, to be presented to Parliament, for the establishment of workhouses, workhouse hospitals, and houses of correction, the appointment of Justices of the Peace and overseers of the poor, and details for the regulation, funding, and administration of these proposals. There are a number of corrections and deletions, indicating a work in progress rather than a fair copy. Each sheet is neatly folded, the final one a little dusted on the reverse, with slight wear to folds, and a neat marginal repair.The sixteenth century increase in poverty led to a system of parish based poor relief evolving from Acts of 1597 and 1601 and lasting, with modification, until 1834. The Acts created a poor rate and overseers to care for the 'settled' impotent poor of every parish. The able-bodied were to be set to work. In their homes the 'deserving' poor received 'outrelief' in cash, food, clothing, fuel, rent and medical aid. Since poverty was created by unemployment, parishes were empowered to 'set the poor on work' in 'Abiding and Working Houses'. Although undated, this manuscript was most likely drafted just after Knatchbull's Act of 1722 which permitted parishes or groups of parishes to build or rent workhouses to 'receive the labour' of their inmates. Refusal to enter meant ineligibility for relief. By 1776 the basic pattern of a Kent workhouse system had emerged. Some 132 workhouses had accommodation, sometimes shared, for 5,819 inmates. Only 29 of 391 parishes did not use them since they were thought cheaper than 'outrelief'. While some large urban workhouses held 100-350 paupers, half held under 30 and were little more than cottages. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

        An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations. 3 vols. 7th edition. London, A. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1793.

      Full leather. Spine of vol. 2 broken, other spines weak, cover edges and corners worn. 8°: [vol 1] A6 B-2I8 2K2, pag.: [10] 1-499; [vol 2] A4 B-2K8 2L6 , pag.: [6] 1-518 [6]; [vol 3] A4 B-2K8 2L2, pag.: [6] 1-465 [50]. Bookblock of all volumes in good condition. Except for the traces of use a good copy. The Scottish economist Adam Smith (1723-1790) was the most influential thinker in the history of capitalist economics. The publication of his book ‘An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations' in 1776 established him as the single most influential figure in the development of modern economic theory. He describes the workings of a market 4, 54, 228, , the division of labor in production, the nature of wealth in relation to money, the inability of governments to manage economies, and the difference between productive and nonproductive labor. Smith's standardwork was reprinted many times in the eightteenth and nineteenth centuries and also in more recent times his work is being published (even a full text electronic edition is available on the internet). The present set is a rare, early edition, printed in London in 1793, only a few years after Smith's death. B0062. 4, 54, 228, ; Philosophy.

In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name.The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sansons grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson. From him, they inherited much of Sansons cartographic material, which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillots death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel.

        Obras de albeytería... Aora nuevamente añadido la sanidad del cavallo y explicación de sus enfemedades

      Early edition, one of the most significant treatises on albeyteria made in Spain in the 17th century, demonstrated by the several editions it went through; Arredondo´s work on the veterinary on horses was well accepted in his time and into the next century. On pp.147 we find the full-page woodcut illustrating a horse surrounded by the zodiac signs and their influence on the animal. The work is divided in three parts, dealing with pathology, therapeutics, antidotes and pharmacology, anatomy (some of it after Ruini). "Sin embargo que esta obra presenta sus extravios, sobre todo en la anatomia, no se puede negar que la Veterinaria le debe mucho a Arredondo, pues trato varios puntos con madurez y reflexion... El alfabeto medicinal de simples es muy digno de leerse" (Catalogo de algunos Autores Españoles que han escrito de Veterinaria, pp.15, 1780). "Arredondo se propuso recopilar los autores españoles que escribieron de veterinaria: cita las obras de los que mas se han distinguido en ello, y las personas ilustres que mas contribuian en su epoca a honrar esta clase de conocimientos" (Braulio Antón Ramírez, Diccionario de bibliografía agronómica, pp.302). The albeyteria was the science dedicated to the maintenance, treating and curing of animals, especially equine; it´s origins in the Spanish language are the "Llibre de la menescalia" or Libro de Albeyteria by Diaz, and shortly after, the one by Reyna. It is an early attempt of veterinary science, although plagued with folk knowledge and advice, appealing in instances to sciences as astrology, instead of scientific method. A rare edition, we found copies at: Danish Union Catalogue, Universitat de Valencia, Biblioteca Nacional de España, Biblioteca Universitaria de Granada, Universidad Complutense, Texas A&M. Palau, 17372.

William Sheppard was factor at Blackwell Hall in the City, the centre of the wool and cloth trade in England from medieval times until the 19th century; his wife, Sarah, was the daughter of Charles Slaughter (mentioned here), who was involved in the same business as Sheppard.

        A Scheme of the Solar System with the Orbits of the Planets and Comets Belonging Thereto Describ'd from Dr. Halley's Accurate Table.

      John Senex,, London, 1723 - Rare broadside illustrating the the orbits of the known comets Engraved print A large, impressively engraved broadside that illustrates the solar system and the orbits of known comets. The broadside is an expression of the general interest and curiosity produced by Newton's discoveries. The orbital details of each comet, taken from Halley's catalogue published in the Philosophical Transactions, are engraved along its orbital track. The explanatory text of the planets and their orbital information is present in four engraved panels of extended text at each corner of the broadside. Finally, there are quotations from Newton's Opticks engraved as circular panels and located within the planisphere. Oddly, the illustrations of Saturn and Jupiter are prominent in the broadside. In 1759, after the work of the Alexis-Claude Clairaut and Mme Nicole-Reine E B Lepaute, the recovery of the comet sighted in 1531, 1607, and 1682 and noted by Halley, was a sensation. Clairaut had been the first to recognise and factor in the influence of the gravitational attraction of the two massive planets on the orbits of comets, and proved it with an accurate prediction of the date of return; in the process he also provided confirmation of the veracity of Newton's mechanics and dynamics. This was unknown to Senex and the makers of the broadside when it was being engraved in 1712. This copy was printed on or before 1720, with John Senex's addess, coinciding with that given by Clifton. Few copies of the earliest issues survive; of those that do, several are erroneously attributed. Those after 1720 can be ignored (e.g., those impressions with the St Dunstan's Church address). The University of Bern has the single known copy of the 1713 impression. It is dated, below the plate line, and priced. The publishers' names, John Senex and John Maxwell, engraved in the legend coincide with the dates given by Clifton. Oxford and the BL have later reprints by Bowles.

        The Fatal Legacy; A Tragedy. As it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal in Lincolns-Inn Fields

      London: Printed for E. Symon, J. Roberts and A. Dodd, 1723, 1723. First edition. ESTC N9868. First and final leaves a little dust-soiled; very good copy.. 8vo, disbound, 79 pages. Half-title present. A translation and adaptation of Racine's La Thébaide. The anonymous dedication states "This tragedy was writ by a young lady, and entrusted to my management . . . The four first acts are taken chiefly from Racine; but the last is (excepting a few lines) entirely new." The Fatal Legacy had a short run at Lincolns-Inn Fields, with Anthony and Anna Maria Seymour Boheme in starring roles. It is apparently the only publication by Jane Robe, about whom little else is recorded. The attribution to Robe comes from Allardyce Nicoll's A History of English Drama.

        The Fatal Legacy; A Tragedy. As it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal in Lincolns-Inn Fields

      London: Printed for E. Symon, J. Roberts and A. Dodd, 1723, 1723. First edition. ESTC N9868. First and final leaves a little dust-soiled; very good copy.. 8vo, disbound, 79 pages. Half-title present. A translation and adaptation of Racine's La Thébaide. The anonymous dedication states "This tragedy was writ by a young lady, and entrusted to my management . . . The four first acts are taken chiefly from Racine; but the last is (excepting a few lines) entirely new." The Fatal Legacy had a short run at Lincolns-Inn Fields, with Anthony and Anna Maria Seymour Boheme in starring roles. It is apparently the only publication by Jane Robe, about whom little else is recorded. The attribution to Robe comes from Allardyce Nicoll's A History of English Drama.

        Systeme de la Nature (2. von 2 Bänden), Ou des loix du monde physique et du monde moral, (IN FRANZÖSISCHER SPRACHE)

      412 Seiten, 8, braunes Ldr der Zeit mit rotem und grünem Rückenschild ORDENTLICHES EXEMPLAR ohne das vordere fliegende Blatt mit wenigen handschriftlichen Anmerkungen, lediglich der Einband etwas berieben (EINZELBAND, 2. von 2 Bänden). Paul Thiry dHolbach (* 8. Dezember 1723 in Edesheim bei Landau 21. Januar 1789 in Paris) war ein Philosoph der französischen Aufklärung, der vor allem für seine religionskritischen und atheistischen Thesen bekannt ist. Sein Geburtsname lautet Paul Heinrich Dietrich Holbach. Berühmtheit erlangte sein Buch System der Natur, das er 1770 unter dem Namen des zu der Zeit bereits seit zehn Jahren verstorbenen Jean-Baptiste de Mirabaud veröffentlichte. In diesem Werk trat er ausdrücklich für den Atheismus ein und betrachtete die Natur als materialistisch-deterministisch wirkende Kette von Prozessen. Holbachs Pariser Haus war ein Treffpunkt und ein wichtiges Zentrum des Gedankenaustauschs unter den Aufklärungsphilosophen.
