FLEURIEU, Charles Pierre Claret, Count d'Eveux de.
Bibl. horlogère de Monsieur R.P. 196; Chadenat 2617; Gould, p. 96 note; Tardy, p. 99. First edition of an account by Charles Pierre Claret, Count Fleurieu (1738-1810), of the first voyage made to test the chronometers invented by his mentor, Ferdinand Berthoud (1727-1807). They were developed to keep accurate time at sea in order to solve the problem of the determination of longitude, to make it possible for ships to easily determine their position. Berthoud closely followed the work of Harrison in England, who had already proven the efficacy of his chronometer no. 4 in 1761, but refused to allow Berthoud and others to examine it. During the voyages described in the present work, Fleurieu tested Berthoud's chronometers as well as his own instruments on board the ship Isis, travelling to Cadiz, the Canaries, the Antilles, Santo Domingo, the Atlantic Ocean, Madera, and several other places. The results showed their success even beyond his own expectations. The present work is complete with the appendix.With an owner's inscription on both title-pages. With only some minor, mostly marginal water stains at the beginning of volume 2. Folios e2 and e3 misbound at the end between 4I1 and 4I2. In very good condition.

ANTI-STAMP ACT MANUSCRIPT)
REVEREND JOHN PAGE (1738-1783). Page received from Harvard College his AB in 1761 and his AM in 1764. He was ordained as a Congregational minister in Danville, New Hampshire in 1763. He died of smallpox on January 29, 1783 after tending to sick parishoners. THE STAMP ACT. In the wake of Britain?s expensive victory in the French and Indian War, Parliament decided to tax the colonists to pay for the conflict. In 1765, the British government required that materials printed in the colonies use paper produced in London and bearing an embossed revenue stamp; this included newspapers, legal documents, etc. Additionally, Parliament stated that the tax had to be paid with British currency, not cheap colonial paper money. The colonists thought the tax was unfair and that they had no say in its passage. Street protests erupted in several states and there were political measures taken too. In October 1765, the Stamp Act Congress, attended by nine colonies, was held in New York City. Across the Atlantic, Parliament got the message about the Stamp Act, and voted to repeal it in February 1766. The Stamp Act, however, was the forerunner to the Townsend Act and other unpopular measures Parliament took, and they are regarded as perhaps the first shot in the quest for Independence. AM. 3 ¾? x 6 ¼? 20 pgs. 1765-1766. No place [Danville, New Hampshire]. A lengthy and fiery manuscript sermon delivered by Reverend John Page of Danville, New Hampshire. The minister responded to the Stamp Act from the pulpit. In this manuscript (which was likely his reading copy), Reverend Page frequently uses abbr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Benjamin Baddam
London: Volume one only. Fourteen plates including frontis, ten of which are folding. Benjamin Baddam (c1693-1740) was a printer and compiler of the Memoirs of the Royal Society. He compiled an abridgement of the Royal Society's Philosophical Transactions. It was printed for him between 1738 and 1744 by Godfrey Smith in ten volumes, with 131 folding plates drawn by G. Smith and engraved by James Hulett, under the title Memoirs of the Royal Society, being a new abridgment of the Philosophical Transactions for the years 1665 to 1735. Previous abridgements of the Philosophical Transactions had been carried out on a piecemeal basis, whereas Baddam's version provided continuity and uniformity for the first time. CONDITION The boards are missing. The text block is firm. Internally the pages are generally clean, with slight browning. There is some very mild spotting, which is mostly limited to the first and last couple of pages. There is the occasional handling mark. The back endpaper is chipped. Overall the condition is fair due to the need for rebinding, otherwise good. Overall Condition: Fair.

HOMER Translated by Alexander Pope
London: Bernard Lintot. Condition: Very good -. Quarto, 11 volumes. PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY AND CONTACT US WITH ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS. Volume I of The Iliad is a later edition (1738), though uniform in binding, style, and format with the rest of the series. "The Iliad" lacks the "Siege of Troy" plate in Volume II, and Achilles' shield of armor in Volume V (The folding map of Greece and Phrygia is present and in excellent condition). This is the quarto Subscriber's Edition (though Volume I of "The Iliad," being a later edition, lacks the subscriber list). Volume I of "The Odyssey" contains the subscriber list for that set. Ex-library with attractive institutional bookplate on the front paste-down, pocket in rear, with some evidence of library marking removal to the rear endpapers of a few volumes. Internally quite clean and unmarked, with a very small "withdrawn" stamp and inked call number on the dedication leaves, and a few erasable pencil notations from the library. The front board of each volume has a thin, blind-embossed call number near the base. Despite library markings, overall about very good in 19th century full light brown diced Russia, with gilt edges, gilt borders, gilt dentelles, blind-tooled cloth endpapers, raised bands, and black morocco spine labels.

Charles VI, Emperor.
1738. Folio, ca. 58 x 44 cm. 1 p. At the beginning of the third year of war against the Ottoman army in the Austro-Russian-Turkish War of 1735-39: a mandate to the Upper Austrian Estates and their subservients regarding an extraordinary tax to be raised for the support the Imperial army. "We [the Emperor] should have wished nothing better, from the time that we were obliged to take arms against the hereditary enemy, than to re-establish the peace, and effect this either through the force of weapons or by kind acts; however, as during the time of our recent campaign our so numerous and well-equipped armies have much suffered from illnesses, long and tiring marches, and other hardships which must needs accompany a war, and thus have been hindered in achieving the desired further successes, and peace negotiations are yet distant, though We do not desist in pursuing all means conducive to achieving such an end, all that is now necessary is to replenish our forces, and convey here the necessary tools, in other words, to make our forces capable of effectively preventing all enemy action, and to bring peace and safety to our kingdom and dominions; all of which, as everybody will readily acknowledge, cannot be done without great expenditure, for which our treasury and the ordinary grants from the estates are not sufficient, We have found Ourselves compelled, even if against our own wishes, to apply a general contribution, or Turk tax [...]". - Traces of folds with slight tears and paper defects; captioned on reverse by a contemporary hand.

Madame de Sevigne
Paris: Chez Rollin Fils, 1738. An early edition of this work, complete in six volumes. Madame la Maquise de Sevigne, her first name being Marie, is best known for her thorough documentation of life in the court of Louis XIV, and general aristocratic life in the seventeenth Century. She was a prolific letter writer, and her letters show a very interesting insight into that period in history. As Marie was widowed at a young age, and never re-married, she had an interesting life at court, as she was respected as a wife would be, but she wasn't hindered by living husband's demands. Most of Marie's letters were to her daughter, Francoise. Knowing that her letters were being copied and circulated, Marie carefully censored them to provide a little bit of privacy. Marie lived to see many interesting events, including the trial and execution of Madame de Brinvilliers. Brinvilliers was an aristocrat who was charged with three murders, who's trail begun the 'Affair of the Poisons' during which many prominent members of court were accused of poisoning and witchcraft. Marie was also good friend with the author Madame de La Fayette, who wrote 'The Princess of Cleves'. CONDITION In the original full calf binding. Externally, sound. Rubbing has caused slight loss and discolouration to the spines and joints. A little loss to the head and tail of spines and the extremities due to bumping.

CHAMBERS, Ephraim
1738. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. ENORMOUS 1st English Science Encyclopedia FOLIOS "This is a view of knowledge, as it were in stamine; exhibiting only the grand, constituent parts thereof." - Ephraim Chambers, Cyclopaedia, preface. A fine folio edition of the first general encyclopedia to be published in English! Ephraim Chambers' famous 'Cyclopaedia' would become a direct inspiration for Diderot and d'Alembert's 'Encyclopedia'. This huge two-volume set includes full page engravings, some of which are folding. Many encyclopedias written during the 18th-century and early were specific to areas of study; however, this work includes a broad array of topics, including astronomy, law, medicine, military, navigation, music and more! According to historians, this landmark work was as influential, or to some even more so, as Samuel Johnson's great Dictionary. Chambers's Cyclopedia had even a more important impact on defining cultural significance. [Attributes: First Edition]
