TURGOT, Anne Robert Jacques.
Cat. Goldsmith I, 14728; Kress B2230; Sabin 97456. First separate edition of a revolutionary treatise on the relations between the American colonies and the colonising countries by the French economist Anne Robert Jacques Turgot (1727-1781). He explains his theory that the colonising countries should withdraw from the colonies on a friendly basis allowing the colonies to have their own goverment and trade with other countries independently. When the colonising countries would grant the colonies independence, they could still have the benefit of trading and settling there. The treatise was already composed in 1776 at the request of King Louis XVI, who solicited his ministers' opinions regarding the proper French policy toward the American Revolution. It was first published as Reflexions rédigées... in Mazzei's Recherches historiques et politiques (1788).A very good copy, only a few small spots.

La première édition de cette Relation, posthume, publiée à Paris la même année, est en deux volumes in-4 et ne contient en tout que 87 planches. Important compte-rendu du voyage effectué par Tournefort sous les ordres de Louis XIV, afin de rechercher au Levant "des plantes, et des métaux et minéraux, de s'y instruire des maladies de ces pays et des remèdes qui sont en usage et de tout ce qui regarde la médecine et l'histoire naturelle". Le botaniste partit en 1700-1702, accompagné de son peintre Claude Aubriet ; il rapporta une immense collection botanique de quelque huit mille plantes et publia sa relation sous forme de lettres à Pontchartrain. Annotation à l'encre rouge au contreplat du premier tome "Payé en 1835 45 francs" ; l'auteur de cette annotation a également numéroté toutes les planches, donné une table pour les planches du tome I et a précisé, au titre du 1er tome : "[Avec] 151 planches représentant fidèlement..."

London: Printed for J. Roberts, in Warwick-Lane; J. Stagg, in Westminster Hall; and D. Browne, without Temple-Bar, 1727. Quarter-bound Leather. Very Good+. 4to: 80pp, with large folding copper-engraved frontispiece, "Procession of Kings and Queens with over 150 robed figures," measuring a full 44 cm x 35 cm, a second folding engraving, "The Manner of the Champions, performing the Ceremony of ye Challenge," and 12 woodcuts in the text depicting various ceremonial objects, including crowns, maces, scepters, and coronation rings.

Buddle Atkinson's bookplate appears in Hugo's Catalogue of Thomas Bewick's works, but it is, in fact, engraved on steel, not wood, and came from the workshop of Mark Lambert, one of Bewick's pupils. The plate was designed and engraved by George F. Robinson, who joined Lambert's workshop in 1841 and who, in the course of 50 years, became chief engraver and director of all art works carried out by the firm. The plate was produced when Atkinson (b.1841) was a … [Click Below for Full Description]

The fifth edition corrected (first edition published 1720, with nine editions through 1738). Not long after his discharge from army duty with the 16 Dragoons under Colonel Charles Churchill, Gibson published the first edition of this veterinary guide, the first work in English on diseases of horses to include more than a passing attempt at anatomy, here explicated in the first 100 or so pages and illustrated with 18 figures on seven plates. Nor was circulation of Gibson's work limited to Great Britain and the continent: in a list of supplies ordered from England in 1759 for his Virginia farm, George Washington specified 'Gibson on the Horse' along with 40 shilling's worth of medicines (see J. F. Smithcors, "William Gibson, Surgeon-Farier, on Fevers," in Medical History, 1958). N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only s … [Click Below for Full Description]

TRUE AND FAITHFUL NARRATIVE]
London printed for J. Roberts at the Oxford-Arms in Warwick-Lane. n.d. ?. 8vo., (2) + 30pp., recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A very good copy. First edition: very scarce (copies only at BL + NLS in B.Isles). Oneby was found guilty of the murder of William Gower during an argument at the gaming-table in The Castle Tavern, Drury Lane. His appeal against the verdict was heard by Lord Chief Justice Raymond (1673-1733) and became important in establishing a distinction between manslaughter and murder. The verdict was upheld and the prisoner committed suicide with a large knife. Raymond's entry in ODNB reads, in part: 'Certainly he helped to develop the law's distinction between murder and manslaughter. In 1727, giving judgment on a special verdict found against Major John Oneby for killing a man after a gambling argument, Raymond determined that an 'act of deliberation' on the part of the protagonist which occurred after the first quarrel showed that he was not deprived of his reason and therefore was guilty of murder.'

Jahrhunderts war der Freiherr Johann Georg Adam von Hoheneck (1669 - 1754) eine der bemerkenswertesten Persönlichkeiten des oberösterreichischen Adels, die als ständischer Politiker, wissenschaftlicher Sammler, Genealoge und Zeithistoriker hervortrat. An seinen adeligen Zeitgenossen kritisierte er, daß sie in den Städten wohnten, viel Geld ausgaben und die Zeit mit Spielen und Banketten verbrachten. Er selbst trug in seinem Schloss Schlüsselberg bei Grieskirchen in Fortsetzung der Arbeiten Streins, von dessen adelsgeschichtlicher Sammlung er eigenhändig 14 Bände kopierte, Enenkels und Preuenhuebers eine Fülle geschichtlicher Quellen zusammen, die er für seine dreibändige Genealogie die Stände ob der Enns verwertete.

VRIES, Klaas de.
Crone Library 373 & 374; cf. Bierens de Haan 5196 (1727 ed.); Cat. NHSM, p. 672 (1713 ed. plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone); STCN (1727 ed., plus 1707 ed. of Tafelen alone), WorldCat (1710 ed.). Very rare first edition of a standard practical manual on the art of navigation, by the virtually unknown Klaas de Vries, teacher of mathematics in Amsterdam. In the preface De Vries summarises the content of the book, which is profusely illustrated (mostly with diagrams) and includes letterpress tables of the tides, the time lag between the positions of the sun and moon for the years 1701-1710, the declination of the sun, etc., as well as 4 engraved plates of a compass rose, the use of the Jakob's staff, the "Platte Paskaart" and the "Wassende graadige paskaart". The work is concluded by sections on the winds one can encounter on the journey from Holland to the Dutch East Indies; how to sail to the East Indies in autumn, during monsoons, etc. Ad 2: The corrected Loots edition of tables of trigonometric functions and logarithms. The note to the reader explicitly states that the tables are based on those published by Adriaen Vlacq in 1665 ( Tabulae sinuum ... ), but that they have been corrected, in part based on comparisons with the folio editions of Pitiscus for the trigonometric functions and Henry Briggs for the logarithms. The present copy lacks the tables of logarithms, but its collation and signing otherwise agrees with the somewhat irregular ones given in Crone. Good copy, the Schat-kamer complete with the errata leaf. The Tafelen lacks the two tables of logarithms (45 leaves, … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: J. Roberts, 1727. First edition, first issue. Covers detached. 8vo. [12], 403pp. Title printed in red-and-black. Engraved frontispiece depicting a magician in his study. Contemporary English blind-paneled calf. Provenance: Gilbert East (1793 inscription at title gutter). "Defoe again begins with a humorous preface, in which he explains that if anyone was expecting, based on the title, to find a work of science, "'a Book of Rules for Instruction in the Practice, or a Magical Grammar for Introduction to young Beginners, all I can say to such is, that they will be mistaken."' The work is instead a history of the practice of magic, beginning in ancient times and traced down to the present day. He explains how the Magi first came to deal with the Devil, and how the Devil has continued to insinuate himself throughout history, appearing to and deceiving men with false signs and wonders" (Lilly Library).

TURGOT, Anne Robert Jacques.
1727. Goldsmith 14728; Kress B2230; Sabin 97456. First separate edition of a revolutionary treatise on the relations between the American colonies and the colonising countries by the French economist Anne Robert Jacques Turgot (1727-1781). He explains his theory that the colonising countries should withdraw from the colonies on a friendly basis allowing the colonies to have their own government and trade with other countries independently. If the colonising countries would grant the colonies independence, they could still have the benefit of trading and settling there. Turgot had composed the treatise already in 1776 at the request of King Louis XVI, who solicited his ministers' opinions regarding the proper French policy toward the American Revolution. It was first published as Reflexions rédigées. in Mazzei's Recherches historiques et politiques (1788).A very good copy, with only a few small spots. [Attributes: First Edition]
