        Nouvelle relation de la France équinoxale, contenant la description des côtes de la Guiane; de l’isle de Cayenne; le commerce de cette colonie; les divers changemens arrivés dans ce pays; et les moeurs et coûtumes des différens peuples sauvages qui l’habitent

      1743 - The best work on Guyane of the 18th century. 1743. Paris. Chez Piget. In 12mo (160 mm x 90 mm). 1 [blank] + 2 ff. + iv + 250 + 1 ff. + 1 [blank]. Contemporary calf, boards with Dukes de Luynes arms in gilt, spine flat, tooled in gilt, red morocco lettering piece, hinges starting to head of spine. A fine copy, clean and fresh except for a few scattered foxing spots. First edition. A finely illustrated work on Cayenne, a city in French Guyane, north of Brazil, east of Surinam; it was one of the last places to be colonized, considered too poor and hot, until the French settled in the region in 1604. The Portuguese, irritated and determined to enforce the Treaty of Tordesillas, destroyed the settlement, again abandoning the region until the French returned in 1643, only to be thrown out this time by local natives. In 1664 the settlement was finally permanent, although Dutch (1658-64 & 1676) and English (1667) attacks caused it to change hands every now and then. This is possibly one of the best works on Cayenne, and definitely one of the most important from an iconographic point of view. It includes 19 -mostly folding- maps and plates of Indian artefacts, costumes, ethnology, and other subjects relating to the daily life, hunting and fishing methods, agriculture, architecture, and cartography. Barrere (1690 – 1755) was a botanist and doctor, appointed by he King of France and sent to Cayenne in 1722 for a period of three years, in this time he familiarized himself with the natives, flora, fauna, the settlement, natural history, ways of the locals and the adaptation of French colonials. It also contains important details on the cultivation of coffee, cassava and sugar. The work was published several years after Barrere’s return, shortly in fast demand for it was widely considered the best work on Guyane. An important provenance: from the recently dispersed library of the ducs de Luynes, Château de Dampierre. Sabin, 3604. Leclerc, 119. European Americana, 743/19.

        MEMOIRS OF AN UNFORTUNATE YOUNG NOBLEMAN, Return'd from a Thirteen Years Slavery in America, Where he Had Been Sent By the Wicked Conrivances of His Cruel Uncle. A Story Founded on Truth and Address'd Equally to the Head and Heart

      London: For J. Freeman, 1743. First volume only, half-title, 277pp., (7)pp. ads at rear, bound in a two toned paneled calf Cambridge style, raised bands with compartments fully gilt decorated, marbled endpapers, edges sprinkled red, small area stained to upper right corner of last few leaves, closed tear to page four otherwise a very good copy of an item that is rarely seen on the life of James Annesley (1715-1760), whose birthright was stolen after the death of his father and on the orders of his uncle was kidnapped and shipped to an American plantation in Delaware where he served seven years as an indentured servant. At the end of 1740 he entered one of the ships of Admiral Vernon as a sailor and told his story to officers who brought him back to England to pursue his claim taken by Lord Altham. Smollet certainly used the account in his Peregrine Pickle. (DNB, I, 477-478). (The case also appears in the Collection of State Trials, 1735-1765). It has often been argued that the case also became the basis for Stevenson’s Kidnapped and various scholars have questioned the historicity of the case. It was in 2010 that A. Roger Ekirch published Birthright; the True Story that Inspired Kidnapped that the facts of the case were proven to be accurate in most details. This copy belonged to Jane Dubuison apparently the same author who wrote about the horrific treatment of girls in early Nineteenth Century France. [Howes a281]. First Edition. 12mo.

      1743 - (Charles VI, 1685-1740), thanking him "for the honour the Count has done Me by his congratulations on My Election under the auspices of the divine Spirit . to the dignity of the Archbishopric of Mainz and the Electorate", and promising "to take every occasion I can to assure him" of his particular goodwill, 1 side folio on mourning paper with conjugate blank and original envelope bearing the Archbishop's papered seal, Mainz, 16th July As Archbishop of Mainz, Ostein was president of the Electoral College, Arch-Chancellor of the Holy Roman Empire and Primate of Germany, and yet was only a deacon when elected. He had, however, undertaken important diplomatic missions for his predecessor. The most pressing current problem was the War of the Austrian Succession. This he solved as far as Mainz was concerned by accepting 250,000 thalers from George II of Hanover as the price of his neutrality. He was thereby able to foster the arts, promoting Bach and Handel's music, founding the Mainz porcelain factory and developing the University and its library.

        MÉMOIRES DE CONDÉ, servant d'éclaircissement et de preuves à l'Histoire de M. de Thou, contenant ce qui s'est passé de plus mémorable en Europe. [6 volumes].

      1743 - Londres & Paris, Rollin, 1743 [et] La Haye, Chez Pierre Dehondt, 1743 pour le tome sixième et dernier.Six volumes in-quarto (205 X 260) veau fauve marbré, dos cinq nerfs, caissons dorés ornés de fers d'angle et fleuron central, pièces de titre et de tomaison maroquin grenat et ocre, coiffes et coupes ornées, tranches rouges (reliure de l’époque). Tome I : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, frontispice, XXIV pages, 632 pages, 4 planches ; Tome II : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, 661 pages, 3 planches ; Tome III : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, 708 pages, 5 planches ; Tome IV : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, 698 pages, 2 portraits, 2 tableaux dépliants, deux cartes dépliantes ; Tome V : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, 587 pages, XL pages, 1 planche ; Tome VI : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, portrait frontispice, XL pages, IX pages, 303 pages. Habiles restaurations à la reliure. ÉDITION ORIGINALE de ce RÉCIT DE PREMIÈRE MAIN DES GUERRES DE RELIGION auxquelles Louis Ier, Prince de Condé, prit une part active ; ce recueil est particulièrement intéressant pour l'histoire des règnes de Charles IX et de Henri IV. Il s'agit de la MEILLEURE ÉDITION, donnée par Denis-François Secousse. Frontispice de Richardson et vignette de titre gravés par Duflos, 5 en-têtes, 17 PLANCHES hors-texte de portraits, 2 PLANS dépliants de batailles (celle de Dreux et celle donnée par le duc de Guise contre les Huguenots), le tout gravé en taille-douce, et 2 tableaux dépliants. Le sixième volume, avec le Supplément, divisé en trois parties, a été publié par Lenglet du Fresnoy à l'adresse de La Haye. Il contient les rééditions de "La Légende du cardinal de Lorraine" par François de l'Isle, celle de Claude de Guise, satire attribuée à Jean Dagonneau par certains, et à Gilbert Regnault par d'autres, et l'"Apologie de Jean Chastel" par François de Vérone, ainsi que plusieurs autres pièces, le tout avec notes historiques et critiques. « Denis-François SECOUSSE ne s'est pas contenté de réimprimer d'une façon plus correcte (et d'ordinaire d'après les éditions originales) les pièces de l'édition de Strasbourg (qu'il appelle «Petits Mémoires de Condé »), de la disposer dans un ordre chronologique plus satisfaisant ; il y a joint une quantité à peu près égale de pièces nouvelles, notamment quelques pièces catholiques et des documents extraits des registres du Parlement ou des recueils Béthune, Brienne, du Puy. [.] Les «Mémoires de Condé », où l'on voit que la personnalité de Condé est, en somme, pour peu de choses, sont donc essentiellement un recueil de plaquettes, dont certaines nous ont été également conservées à l'état isolé, tandis que pour d'autres les originaux ont disparu. La comparaison, partout où elle est possible, entre les pièces originales et le Recueil atteste la fidélité des compilateurs de ce dernier. Mais il va de soi que c'est surtout l'édition de Secousse qui est pour nous un inappréciable instrument de travail. » (Hauser). BEL EXEMPLAIRE en reliure d'époque de ces précieux mémoires. (Barbier, III, 194 – Cioranescu, 59724 – Brunet, II, 215 – Hauser, pp. 104-105). NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Histoire generale et particuliere de visa fait en France.

On y a joint un Etat des Actionaires & des Mississipiens compris au Rôle des Taxes du 15. Septembre 1722, avec des Remarques sur leurs Fortunes présentes.

      The Hague: F. H. Scheurleer, 1743 - 4 volumes, twelvemo (155 x 95 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, flat spines ruled gilt, red and green labels, sprinkled edges. A few small single wormholes to the spines, contents unaffected. A highly attractive set. Title-pages printed in red and black, with engraved vignettes. First edition of one of the rarest texts in economics: the detailed account of the operation of the Visa, which was brought into operation after the downfall of John Law to investigate the profiteers of the Mississippi bubble, to improve the financial position of the state and to penalize the financier class. The Visa was similar to the Chambre de Justice. This is the first book to print the name of Cantillon and to give details of his financial activities in the Mississippi bubble and his dealings with John Law. The Visa was established by decree on 26 January 1721, and Pâris Duverney was entrusted with its execution. The aim of the Visa was to make an inventory of the property of all those, who either directly or indirectly, had shared in the profits of the Système, and to tax them retrospectively. "The decree of 26th January 1721 ordered that all the contracts for income from the state – both perpetual and life annuities – the shares of the India Company, all the certificates of bank accounts, accounts of deposits, all the bonds, contracts for annuities, as well as the notes of the royal bank, as such all the proofs of personal property created by the Système, should within two months, a time which might be extended to the 30th June, be presented before a commission to be appointed by the king. The accounts which were rendered from the 1st to the 15th of July were, as a commencement, to be reduced by a third; those which were rendered from the 16th to the 31st of July by two-thirds. If not presented before the last date mentioned they lost all value To crown the work of Pâris Duverney, and to reach those who had hitherto been able to escape, the council of state, on 15th September 1722, issued a decree enforcing an additional poll-tax, namely the levy of a fine on all immovable property belonging to the hommes nouveaux, which produced 187,893,661 livres" (Palgrave III, 630–1). The last section shows this special "wealth tax" on the property of those who had gained the most in the system, the hommes nouveaux. Cantillon is listed among them (II, 170) and, according to the figures given, only twenty-two people had made more money than him. His capital gains were estimated at 20 million livres, and the tax levied 2.4 million. Cantillon had left France fearing the results of the Visa and the tax payments it would entail, and presumably had his agents working to have his name omitted from it. This he did not achieve, but he was listed as "inconnu", which was clearly untrue, since his bank was still in business (being only gradually wound down), and was listed in the Almanach royal of that year (see Antoin E. Murphy, Richard Cantillon: Entrepreneur and Economist, p. 196). Volumes III and IV are two additional – particularly rare – parts containing the relevant decrets and arrêts, beginning with the Chambre de Justice of 1716 and leading up to 1722. Marmont du Hautchamp (c.1682–c.1760), born in Orléans, was fermier des domaines of Flanders. His other works are an Histoire du Système des Finances . pendant les années 1719 & 1720 (The Hague, 1739), and three novels, Rhétima (1723), Mizivida (1738), and Rispia (1754).

        maj:ts nådige bref til öfwer-ståthållaren och samtelige landshöfdingarne, dat.

      i råd-cammaren then 9 julii 1743, med then uti kongl. maj:ts nådige kungiörelse af then 23 sistledne junii utlåfwade berättelse, angående en del dal-allmoges sammangaddning och upror. Stockholm, Pet. Momma, 1743. 4:o. (84) s. Spridda lätta solkfläckar. Handskriven sidnumrering från tidigare samlingsband. Tagen ur band och med blåstänkta snitt. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Warmholtz 6205. Skildring av och aktsamling kring dalupproret 1743, den stora daldansen. De första 38 sidorna upptas av Gustaf Boneauschiölds "Berättelse om en del dal-almoges och thes medföljes sammangaddning och upror" ("tros icke wara så aldeles owäldig" enligt Warmholtz), resten är avtryckta handlingar om upproret. Stora daldansen 1743 var det sista av de stora bondeupproren, orsak denna gång var dock mindre Dalarnas gamla upprorstradition än försämrade ekonomiska förutsättningar för Dalarna, såväl gällande den viktiga gränshandeln som hemslöjden. I bakgrunden fanns även bondeståndets missnöje med regeringens förordande av Adolf Fredrik som kronprins. Den 4500 man starka upprorshären lämnade Falun den 11 juni, tvingade landshövdingen Wennerstedt och andra ståndspersoner med sig, och tågade mot Stockholm, där nervositeten steg. Några av de mer aggresiva tågade in i Stockholm och den 22 juni avlossades de första skotten på Norrmalmstorg (nuv. Gustav Adolfs torg). Ganska snart var dock bondehären fullständigt slagen, och ledarna avrättades. När ordningen återställts kunde även tronföljarvalet genomföras och redan den 23 juni valdes Adolf Fredrik till svensk tronföljare

The Traite de dynamique, one of d&#39;Alembert&#39;s most famous scientific works, demonstrates d&#39;Alembert clearly recognized that a scientific revolution had occured and sets out to formalize the new science of mechanics - an accomplishment often mis-attributed to Newton. The first part of the treatise comprises d&#39;Alembert&#39;s own three laws of motion: inertia, the parallelogram of motion, and equilibrium. The second part contains the first statement of what has come to be known as "d&#39;Alembert&#39;s Principle:" which states that the internal forces of inertia must be equal and opposite to the forces that produce the acceleration - a theory which is applied to many mechanical and technical problems, in particular to the theory of the motion of fluids. &#39;The "Treatise on Dynamics" was d&#39;Alembert&#39;s first major book and it is a landmark in the history of mechanics. It reduces the laws of the motion of bodies to a law of equilibrium" (PMM)..

        Amours de Theagénes et Chariclée. Histoire Ethiopique.

      "Londres" [but Paris], 1743 - First edition of this anonymous translation of the third century Greek romance Aethiopica, a work highly prized in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe as perhaps the earliest prose adventure. It was admired and imitated by European authors such as Racine, Mme de Scudéry, Marin le Roy de Gomberville, Cervantes, and Aphra Behn and exercised a profound influence on the development of the European novel.

        Kreigs Expeditions Karte in Bohmen I Blat, in welchern die Haubstadt Prag mit der Franzofsischen und Saechsischen Belegerug und Eroberung, so den 26 Novembere 1741 [...] / Carte des Expeditions de Guerre en Boheme, I. Feuille, dans laquelle se voit le Plan de la Ville de Prague, assiegee et prise par les Troupes auxillaires de France et de Saxe [...]

      Nuremberg, 1743. Copper engraving, 51 x 60 cms, original hand-colour, blank verso; town plan of Prague with insets showing sections through the fortifications and further illustrating the disposition of the besieging forces. Prague was captured by a mixed force of French, Bavarians and Saxons on behalf of Charles, the elector of Bavaria, during the Austrian war of Succession. In 1743, the year in which our map was published, Prague was re-taken by the armies of the empress Maria Theresa, and despite two sieges by the Prussian armies of Frederick the Great in 1744 and 1757 (the first briefly successful), Prague remained under Austrian control until the collapse of the Holy Roman Empire during the First World War.

        The South Prospect of Leicester

      London., 1743. Size: 403 x 830 mm. Copperplate engraving with later hand colour. Good condition. From 1726 to 1742, Samuel Buck (1696&#150;1779) and his brother Nathaniel published an ambitious series of collection of perspective views ("antiquities") in the counties of England and Wales. From 1728 they worked on a parallel project, producing long prospects of all the cities, sea-ports and county towns, usually marketing their town prospects in sets of six. Though the Buck brothers were not the only ones producing views of antiquities and town prospects in the eighteenth century they were much the most prolific. Collectively their engravings provide us with an indispensable record of what English and Welsh towns looked like before the industrial revolution.
