        Principes du droit naturel.

      Geneva: Barrillot & fils,, 1747. Quarto (248 x 190 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label, raised bands, compartments tooled in gilt, red edges. Woodcut device to title. Head of spine and front joint skilfully repaired, and extremities refurbished; horizontal tears to rear free endpaper with some loss, removed bookplate to front pastedown exposing board underneath; still a very good copy. First edition of the Swiss legal and political theorist's principal work, an important influence on the American Founding Fathers. A natural law professor at the University of Geneva, Burlamaqui (1694–1748) conceived of his treatise as a general introduction to his subject intended for students, but its success and influence far exceeded his expectations. It was "translated into English, Latin, Dutch, Danish, Italian, and Spanish and republished in more than sixty different editions. The English translation became a standard textbook both at Cambridge and at the foremost American colleges" (Petter Korkman, introduction to The Principles of Natural and Political Law, 2006). Thomas Jefferson possessed a 1756 French edition of the work (Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, 1409). "Jefferson's concept of moral sense is closest to that of Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui, one of his favourite authorities on legal studies" (Ari Helo, Thomas Jefferson's Ethics and the Politics of Human Progress: the Morality of a Slaveholder, Cambridge 2014, p. 96). In Principes du droit naturel Burlamaqui was the first modern thinker to identify the pursuit of happiness as a defining characteristic of man; hence it has been argued by Ray Forrest Harvey, the leading authority on Burlamaqui, that he was a major inspiration for Jefferson when the latter included the famous assertion of the right to "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" in the Declaration of Independence. Aside from his influence on Jefferson in particular, Burlamaqui was more generally a major influence on the American Founding Fathers, especially through his conception of the balance of powers: "Early American thought also drew on ideas circulating on the Continent. The author who played the greatest part in transmitting those ideas over the Atlantic was the Swiss writer Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui, now almost forgotten, but at one time a best-selling author" (Ronald Hamowy, general introduction to The Encyclopaedia of Libertarianism). Principes du droit naturel was Burlamaqui's only work to be published during his lifetime. It first appeared in English the year of his death in a translation by Thomas Nugent.

      Halfleer, (8)+176+(2)+110+(2)+182 pag. Mooi exemplaar. C1171.Ad. 2: Knuttel 18158. Drie publicaties over de ongeregeldheden te Groningen rond de benoeming van Willem IV tot stadhouder (3-5-1747) en de erkenning van de erfelijkheid van het stadhouderschap (16-11-1747). Groningen en Friesland wezen in december 1747 de erfelijkheid in vrouwelijke lijn af, maar gingen 20-3-1748 accoord met erfelijkheid in mannelijke lijn. Dit laatste na onlusten op 17 maart tijdens feestelijkheden rond de geboorte van een zoontje van de stadhouder. Burgemeester Geertsema weigerde een oranje strik te dragen en de feestende menigte een fooi te geven. Plunderen van zijn huis was het gevolg. Drie van de oproerlingen werden gestraft met geseling, maar de rust keerde niet terug en ook op het platteland werd geplunderd. De staten-voorzitter E.J. Lewe van Aduard verschanste zich in zijn buiten te Aduard tegen de opstandige prinsgezinden en moest door het leger ontzet worden. De revolutionaire acties van de Groningse (en Friese) boeren vonden weerklank in de gehele Republiek. Het eerste van de drie hier aangeboden werken opent met een lierzang van D. Menninga en de STCN vraagt zich af of deze ook de samensteller van het werk is.

        Document Signed by Future Connecticut Governor Jonathan Trumbull 1747

      Lebanon, Connecticut, 1747. Near Fine. Laid paper. Approximately 7.5" x 12.25". Old folds, one small tear and one small chip effecting no text, remnant of wax seal, very good. An indenture made on advice of Trumbull and on behalf of the town selectmen binding Prudence Lamb, a poor female child as maid servant to James Mackall and his wife until she turns 18. In exchange MacKall and his wife were required to provide her "...suitable meat, drink, washing, lodging & wearing apparel..." as well as to "...teach her to read and spin if she be capable of learning of it..." The document seems to not be in Trumbull's hand, but he has Signed and docketed it on the verso. Further research indicates the Prudence Lamb married Elijah Taylor in Lebanon in 1757. Trumbull, at the time a successful merchant, would later become a Royal Governor of Connecticut and was the only such to support the rebelling Colonies. He remained as Governor for the entirety of the Revolution. An early legal document bearing his signature.

An interesting and historically important work as virtually the only English language work of the topic between John Bulwer's mid-17th century titles and the first translations of Lavater. Parsons' interests are (as Charles Bell's would later be) primarily physiological or neurological, particularly in relation to emotional expression, rether than concerned with character reading. Two small ink lines in the top margin of the title page suggest it may have been cropped, but no other indication of this. The important John Crerar Library was founded in Chicago 1897, and is now run by the University of Chicago. How this item turned up in the U.K. is a mystery.

Zeit auf 7 Bünden 187 S. + 2 IndicesNamensvermerk auf dem VorsatzblattEinband bestoßen, Rücken wurmstichig, kleiner Abriß am vorderen Vorsatzblatt, sonst innen tadellos!Die preußische Provinz Hessen-Nassau war 1868 aus den 1866 von Preußen annektierten Ländern Kurhessen und Nassau, dem Kreis Biedenkopf (Hessisches Hinterland) des Großherzogtums Hessen sowie der Freien Stadt Frankfurt entstanden. Sie umfasste den nördlichen und mittleren Teil des heutigen Bundeslandes Hessen, in den allerdings die hessische Provinz Oberhessen eingelagert war, sowie Teile von Rheinland-Pfalz, Niedersachsen und Thüringen und bestand bis 1944. Die größten Städte waren Frankfurt am Main, Kassel (Provinzhauptstadt) und Wiesbaden. Die Provinz hatte eine Fläche von 15.700 km² und (1905) gut zwei Millionen Einwohner. Nach dem Deutschen Krieg 1866 gelangten das Kurfürstentum Hessen (Residenzstadt Kassel), das Herzogtum Nassau (Residenzstadt Wiesbaden), die Freie Stadt Frankfurt und die bayerischen Ämter Gersfeld und Orb unter preußische Herrschaft. Ferner musste das Großherzogtum Hessen den Kreis Biedenkopf, das sog. Hessische Hinterland, sowie die kurz zuvor erworbene Landgrafschaft Hessen-Homburg an Preußen abtreten, es erhielt allerdings das zuvor kurhessische Bad Nauheim.Obwohl die mitten in Hessen gelegene, ehemals Freie Reichsstadt Wetzlar schon im Jahre 1815 preußisch und 1822 Kreisstadt des neu geschaffenen preußischen Landkreises Wetzlar geworden war, blieb sie weiter im Regierungsbezirk Koblenz der Rheinprovinz. Erst am 1. Oktober 1932 wurden Stadt und Kreis Wetzlar in den Regierungsbezirk Wiesbaden der Provinz Hessen-Nassau eingegliedert.Die neuen preußischen Gebiete wurden zunächst in den Regierungsbezirken Cassel und Wiesbaden unter einem vorläufigen preußischen Oberpräsidium in Cassel vereinigt.Am 7. Dezember 1868 entstand hieraus die neue preußische Provinz Hessen-Nassau. Sie gliederte sich – wie in Preußen üblich – in Stadtkreise und Landkreise.(wikipedia)

        A Bill in the Chancery of New-Jersey, at the suit of John Earl of Stair, and others, Proprietors of the Eastern-Division of New-Jersey; against Benjamin Bond, and some other persons of Elizabeth-Town, distinguished by the name of the Clinker Lot Right Men. With three large maps, done from copper-plates.

      Printed by James Parker, in New-York, 1747; and a few Copies are to be sold by him, and Benjamin Franklin, in Philadelphia, (New York) - First edition. Folio. pp. [1-2] 3-124, 1-11 [12 (blank)], 13-24 [25 (blank)], 25-39 [40 (blank)], [1-6 (last page blank)]. With 3 folded maps prepared by James Alexander and Lewis Evans, and engraved by James Turner. The highlighted boundary lines on maps I and II are hand-colored in accordance with the color-coded key printed in the cartouche on Map no. I (yellow, red, blue, and green). This copy also includes the color purple along the border of Staten Island. Small ink signature on the title page (dated 1815), some browning and modest scattered foxing to the text pages and maps (Map III is partly damaged, with a small missing section restored), a few occasional small stains to the margins, a good copy. Professionally rebound in modern period style full goat, spine decorated in gilt with raised bands and two (red and black) spine labels, gilt-stamped covers with blind-ruled borders, modern period style marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. All three maps have been professionally restored: Maps I and II are backed on linen, and Map 3 is backed on wove paper with the survey lines from a small missing section (about 1.5" x 4.5") neatly restored in lead pencil. Laid-in are two engraved bookplates: of Edward M. Crane and Hiram Edmund Deats (removed from the previous binding).A handsomely bound copy of this historically important case involving long-standing land disputes in colonial New Jersey. Commonly known as the Elizabethtown Bill in Chancery, the Bill was drafted by the lawyer and statesman James Alexander (best known for his defense of John Peter Zenger). Printed by James Parker in partnership with Benjamin Franklin, Alexander also enlisted Franklin's help for the engraving and printing of the copperplate maps by James Turner of Boston. Americana collector Thomas W. Streeter has called the book: "one of the most remarkable documents of colonial times." The first map depicts the Atlantic coast from Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras; the second map provides a more detailed view of Northern New Jersey, and adjacent areas of New York and Pennsylvania ("Laid down by a Scale of Five miles to an Inch"); the third map focuses on the contested region in Northeastern New Jersey ("Protracted by a Scale of 150 Chains to an Inch"), showing considerably more geographical detail (of the Blue Mountains, along the Raritan River, Perth Amboy, and adjacent areas) than earlier maps of the region.A scarce copy containing all three maps that are among the earliest maps drawn and engraved in the colonies, in a fine period style binding. A detailed description follows:Collation: p1 A-2G2 2H2 (2H2 missing, blank?), a-c2, 2b-d2, 2E-H2, ?2, 2?1.

        An address to the College of Physicians, and to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge; occasion'd by the late swarms of Scotch and Leyden physicians, &c. who have openly assum'd the liberty (unlicens'd from the College, &c.) of practising physick in England, contrary to the privileges of our Universities, and of the Charter granted to the College of Physicians in London. To which is added, a compleat list of all the regular physicians. By an Impartial Hand.

      London: M. Cooper 1747 - 8vo., (4) + 27 + (1)pp., title-page just a bit soiled, in a fine modern binding of blind-rules maroon morocco, spine neatly lettered in gilt. A very good copy indeed with the tiny circular inkstamp of the Selbourne Library> in a couple of places. First, and only, edition and apparently really quite scarce: ESTC finds copies at only 6 libraries outside UK. Wellcome II, p.15. This is a perceptive criticism of the chaotic state of medical education and licensing of physicians in mid-18th century London. The author, perhaps himself a member of the College of Physicians, gives us an expert analysis of what he had discovered in his investigations. He thus touches on such matters as: The difficulty of attaining a doctor's degree in the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, particularly at Oxford. . That the laws of Holland cannot have any effect in England; consequently Leyden physicians have no right to practise here, - and are never incorporated in the College. . Physick brought into disrepute by the inundations of S----h and L-yd-n practitioners. . A proposal for suppressing all irregular practitioners . A complaint that irregular physicians (nay even Roman Catholicks) are elected physicians to our publick hospitals, and recommended to all the places of profit in physick .> [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Carta del P. Pedro Lozano, de la Compañia de Jesus, de la Provincia del Paraguay, escrita al P. Bruno Morales

      First edition. An extremely rare relation written by the Chronicler of the Society of Jesus in Paraguay, addressed to Father Bruno Morales; it "Describes José de Quiroga's expedition to the Patagonian coasts" (European Americana 747/105). The relation describes the expedition sent out by the Governor of the River Plate, Jose Andonaegui (1685 - 1761), in 1745, to the Patagonia; the group included the Jesuit Priests Jose Quiroga, Jose Cardiel, and Matias Strobel, on board the ship San Antonio, commanded by Joaquin Olivares y Centeno. Adonaegui was an unusually active Governor, who amongst other appointments, was in charge of conducting the Guarani's to Portuguese Jurisdiction, under the 1750 Treaty. The expedition aimed to expand the commercial frontiers of Buenos Aires and explore the riches of the vast Patagonian region, up to then virtually untouched. Under his auspices, the first expeditions south of Buenos Aires, only inhabited by hostile natives, took place, laying the ground for future settlements and interest. The expeditionary´s reached Puerto Deseado in January 1746, and from there went further south, exploring the San Julian bay, the River Coig and other areas; they returned to Buenos Aires in April of the same year. Later, Father Cardiel would join Falkner in his mission to the Patagonia. Lozano (1697 - 1752) was a Jesuit missionary and historian, heavily involved with the activities of the Jesuits in America; he travelled to Paraguay when only 17, where he attended the Colegio Maximo de Cordoba, applying himself to philosophy, theology, and history. By the first half of the 18th century, he was appointed historian to the Jesuits. Lozano authored the "Descripcion chorographica del Terreno, Rios, Arboles y Animales de las dilatadissimas Provincias del Gran Chaco Gualamba" (1733), the "Historia de la Compañía de Jesús en la Provincia del Paraguay" (1754), and the Historia de las revoluciones del Paraguay. The rarity is considerable, no copy has appeared on the market since the 1968, and Sabin speculates that it was likely "printed for private distribution only". Medina, BHA, 7227, Palau, 142976, Sabin, 42597 (all re the 56-page edition).

        Hecho por informe que hicieron los oficiales reales de la Villa Imperial de Potosi

      Likely the first -and only- edition. Rare imprint concerning the legal case of a judge -Ignacio Antonio del Castillo- with the Real Audiencia de la Plata, who was suspended in the early 1740´s for marrying from a women native of his Audiencia, a union which required the express authorisation from the King. Castillo was later reinstated with all honours in 1746. The prohibition of marrying within the region where an officer was appointed was of a practical nature, and as such, could be overlooked against a fee to be paid to the Crown (Cf. Bridikhina: "Theatrum mundi; Entramados del poder en Charcas colonial", p.117). Gomez Garcia was a legitimate son to Captain Jose Gomez Garcia and Luisa Flores de Villoria y Mondragon; Gomez Garcia scaled rapidly within the colonial administration of Peru, having been appointed as Fiscal de Charcas, Oidor for the Lima Audiencia (Cf. Lohmann Villena "Los minitros de la audiencia de Lima en el Reinado de los Borbones). Rare limenian imprint, only one copy sold at auction -this one- and only one copy in public institutions in Spain according to CCPBE. Medina, Lima 986.

        Moeurs et usages des Turcs, leur religion, leur gouvernement civil, militaire et politique, avec un abrégé de l'histoire Ottomane. Ouvrage enrichi de Figures, entailles Douces. TWO VOLUMES.

      Pierre Mortier & Mérigot et Piget,, Amsterdam 1747 - Volume I: XXIV, 453 pp, (17) / Volume II: VIII, 537 pp, (4), 2 engraved frontispieces, 28 plates (7 folding), engraved by Duflos after Boucher & Halle comprising scenes illustrating Turkish characters and costumes, full calf, lightly rubbed, title gilt on raised decorated spine, marbled endpapers, title page printed in red and black, numerous engraved initials and head-tail pieces, all edges red, small shelf label at top spine, small tear to one folding plate in Vol II without loss, minor damp stains to margins, otherwise a fine copy with wide margins. The first edition of this work appeared in Paris; Volume I was published by Coustelier in 1746, and Volume II was published by Mérigot et Piget in 1747. At the same time they re-issued Volume I with their own imprint, and they either gave permission to Pierre Mortier of Amsterdam to sell the work with his own name attached to it, or he pirated the work by buying up original sheets and providing new title-pages. Colas identifies copies with the imprint containing only Mortier’s name (as this Vol. I) as piracies. The title page to this Volume II appears to be that of the genuine second edition published by Mérigot and Piget, but with Mortier’s name added to the imprint. In any case the original sheets have been used in all these issues/or piracies. In this issue Guer’s name appears only on the title of Volume II. In the true second edition it appears on the title of Volume I as well. Guer did not travel in the Levant; the text of the work is compiled from Grelot, Busbecq, Belon, Rycaut, Maillet, etc. In fact, to his contemporaries Guer was best known as the editor of Maillet’s Telliamed. His Turkish work is of considerable interest for its plates, which were engraved by Duflos after designs by Boucher and Halle and which consist of views and scenes illustrating Turkish characters and costumes. Bibliographic references: Blackmer 762; Weber, 761 for 2nd edition; Brunet II, 1783 for first edition; Colas 1348, 1349; Atabey 534. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]
