      L'Aia 1747 - Carta storico-geografica che mostra i posti occupati dall'Armata Imperiale austriaca il 16 aprile 1747, durante l'assedio di Genova, nel tentativo, poi fallito, di conquistarla. Le forze austriache guidate da Schulenberg raggiunsero la periferia della città in aprile, ma realizzando di non avere forze a sufficienza per lanciare un'offensiva, dovettero aspettare fino a giugno l'arrivo di dodici battaglioni di fanteria da parte dei loro alleati sardi. Questi ritardi permisero a spagnoli e francesi di mandare altre truppe in città al comando Marshal Boufflers per rafforzare la guarnigione. L'avvicinamento delle forze franco-spagnole al comando di Marshal Belle-Isle indusse i sardi a ritirarsi, e Schulenberg abbandonò l'assedio accusando gli alleati. Titoli e rubrica alfabetica A-X bilingue francese -olandese. Edita da Antoine De Groot & eredi. Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 595 505mm

        A SUMMARY, HISTORICAL AND POLITICAL, OF THE FIRST PLANTING, PROGRESSIVE IMPROVEMENTS, AND PRESENT STATE OF THE BRITISH SETTLEMENTS IN NORTH- AMERICA; WITH SOME TRANSIENT ACCOUNTS OF THE BORDERING FRENCH AND SPANISH SETTLEMENTS. No. 7 [- No. 8].

      Boston: Printed and sold by Rogers and Fowle in Queen-Street, 1747. - Two parts, 97-112; 113-128pp. Printed wrappers containing titlepage on front and publisher's ads on the rear. Stitched as issued. Some light wear and soiling. Very good. Two parts of Douglass' important work, which was published in serial fashion by Boston publishers and booksellers Rogers and Fowle. Each number was published as an irregular supplement to the AMERICAN MAGAZINE, and the whole work would eventually comprise two lengthy volumes. These two parts are interesting because they show a different form of publication for mid-18th-century colonial America, and the rearmost leaf contains ads both for newly published and imported books. "First American history of the whole country" - Howes. Douglass was a Scottish physician living in Boston. Although not a work noted for its accuracy, Wroth comments, "Modern critics of the SUMMARY have overlooked the fact that its author was the first to attempt this story from the viewpoint of a resident American.," and further quotes a contemporary critic in the MONTHLY REVIEW as finding it "a fuller and more circumstantial account of North-America, than is any where else to be met with." In his PRESENT STATE OF NORTH AMERICA (London, 1755) John Huske wrote: "There is not one Work yet published to the World in our Language that in any Degree deserves the Title of a History of North America, but Smith's HISTORY OF VIRGINIA, and Douglass's SUMMARY.And this last is only valuable for being the best Collection of facts in general, for a future Historian, that was ever made or published." An interesting peek at colonial publishing history, and a work of major importance in the writing of American history. HOWES D436. CLARK I:226. WROTH, AMERICAN BOOKSHELF, pp.87-91. SABIN 20726.

        Leger B of Henry Dewitt & Dirk W. Ten Broek in Company, 1738 (sic)

      Kingston, NY, 1747. Good +. A ledger from the transitional period from Dutch to English control in colonial New York, showing the Dutch roots of the state's commerce and culture. The manuscript account book was for the company of Henry Dewitt and Dirk Tenbroek, merchants in Kingston NY and is written in Old Dutch. Most of the early names recorded in the ledger are Dutch, while the later 1740s, they are written in English. The ledger also includes a 1740 record of a slave purchase by Philip Livingston, a statesman of Dutch lineage who later signed the Declaration of Independence. The Kingston company of Dewitt and Ten Broeck was owned by influential early Dutch families. Dirck W Ten Broeck (1715 - ?) also played a role in the Revolution. He represented the manor of Livingston in the Provincial Assembly during the Revolution when it met at Kingston in 1777, and again in 1778 in Poughkeepsie. He remained an Assembly representative until 1783. The most extensive accounts in the ledger are those for Philip Livingston (1716- 1878), who at the time was in business with his father, also Philip Livingston (1686 - 1749) trading slaves in the West Indies and Africa through their company Philip Livingston & Sons. The ledger records Philip Livingston's purchase of a slave on February 13, 1740 in Dutch: "Voor 1 neger gelevert (For 1 Negro delivered) 32 pounds" (p80). The ledger entries are recorded in Dutch until 1741; the entries recorded in English begin in 1744. Philip Livingston Sr. spent much time in New York City; he owned several ships used for privateering and the triangle trade. By the 1730s Livingston & Sons were one of New York's leading importers of slave labor from the sugar islands. Wall Street's official slave market existed from 1711 to 1762; slavery wasn't fully abolished in New York state until 1827. The ledger also records Livingston's other purchases, mainly fur pelts are recorded here from 1743 to 1747 in ruled charts headed "Philip Livingston, his account current in peltry with Henry DeWitt". Livingston Jr. became active raising funds and troops to fight the British. In 1759, he was elected to the New York House of Representatives and attended the Stamp Act Congress. When New York established a rebel government in 1775, he became the President of the Provincial Convention, and a delegate to the Continental Congress. There Livingston supported separation from Britain. In 1776 he joined other Continental Congress delegates in signing the Declaration of Independence. New Netherland was founded by the Dutch as a place of religious refuge and a center of free trade. In 1664 New Amsterdam under Peter Stuyvesant was forced to surrender to the English without a struggle, but this didn't mark the end of Dutch influence in the city or in the Hudson Valley. The Dutch kept a linguistic presence, with Dutch words entering the American vernacular, and Dutch place names remaining, such as Brooklyn (Breuckelen), Harlem (Haarlem) and Broadway (Breede Wegh). The street layout of lower Manhattan below Wall Street, as well as Kingston and Albany was made by the Dutch. Kingston was originally named Wiltwyck by the Dutch, and along with Beverwyck (Albany) was an important Dutch settlement on the Hudson. Other Dutch families recorded in the ledger include Gansevoort, Tappan, Beekman, Coursaler, Colden, Delameter, Dubois, Masten, Merkel, Oosterhaut, Pawling, Rensellaer, Rutsen, Steenburgh, Sleght, Schoonmaker, Ten Eyck, Tenbroek, Van Beuren, Van Nostrand, Vandenburgh, Vansteenburgh, and Van Vliet. These customers made purchases of dry goods, beverages, grains and meals, and pottery. Folio, 8 1/4 x 12 1/2". Title page, [3] pp customer index, 114pp. Has the rear paper covered board but lacks front cover and spine binding. Some leaves and gatherings detached but present. A few final leaves marked and worn, otherwise in remarkably good condition, text bright and legible. An important early record of commerce in colonial New York showing the central role of the descendants of the original Dutch settlers in the Hudson Valley right through the middle of the 18th century.

        A SUMMARY, HISTORICAL AND POLITICAL, OF THE FIRST PLANTING, PROGRESSIVE IMPROVEMENTS, AND PRESENT STATE OF THE BRITISH SETTLEMENTS IN NORTH-AMERICA; WITH SOME TRANSIENT ACCOUNTS OF THE BORDERING FRENCH AND SPANISH SETTLEMENTS. No. 7 [- No. 8]

      Boston: Printed and sold by Rogers and Fowle in Queen-Street, 1747. Two parts, 97-112; 113-128pp. Printed wrappers containing titlepage on front and publisher's advertisements on the rear. Stitched as issued. Some light wear and soiling. Very good. Two parts of Douglass' important work, which was published in serial fashion by Boston publishers and booksellers Rogers and Fowle. Each number was published as an irregular supplement to the AMERICAN MAGAZINE, and the whole work would eventually comprise two lengthy volumes. These two parts are interesting because they show a different form of publication for mid-18th-century colonial America, and the rearmost leaf contains ads both for newly published and imported books. "First American history of the whole country" - Howes. Douglass was a Scottish physician living in Boston. Although not a work noted for its accuracy, Wroth comments, "Modern critics of the SUMMARY have overlooked the fact that its author was the first to attempt this story from the viewpoint of a resident American...," and further quotes a contemporary critic in the MONTHLY REVIEW as finding it "a fuller and more circumstantial account of North-America, than is any where else to be met with." In his PRESENT STATE OF NORTH AMERICA (London, 1755) John Huske wrote: "There is not one Work yet published to the World in our Language that in any Degree deserves the Title of a History of North America, but Smith's HISTORY OF VIRGINIA, and Douglass's SUMMARY...And this last is only valuable for being the best Collection of facts in general, for a future Historian, that was ever made or published." An interesting peek at colonial publishing history, and a work of major importance in the writing of American history. HOWES D436. CLARK I:226. WROTH, AMERICAN BOOKSHELF, pp.87-91. SABIN 20726.

        The plan of a dictionary of the English language; addressed to the Right Honorable Philip Dormer, Earl of Chesterfield; one of His Majesty's principal Secretaries of State

      London: printed for J. & P. Knapton, T. Longman and T. Shewell [et al.], 1747. First edition, second state (without Chesterfield's name on A2 recto), 4to, pp. [2], 34; a very good copy in full 20th century speckled calf by Riviere, red morocco label, gilt decorated spine. "A notable document which showed that the problem of [establishing standardized English] had found its master, one who had the vision, the learning, the common sense, and the tenacity to execute a project comparable to that which had for so long occupied the French Academy… Under such a burden of responsibility Johnson formulated a comprehensive and minute plan, discussing selection of the vocabulary, orthography, pronunciation, etymology, syntax, definitions, usage, and citations of authorities. Johnson's Plan presented two proposals of outstanding importance, the carefully divided and ordered definition and the citation of authorities" (Starnes & Noyes, pp. 148-52). "Johnson conceived the thought of compiling an English Dictionary quite early in life, but he did not turn to the work until his proposals to publish an edition of Shakespeare in 1745 were nullified by Tonson, the holder of the Shakespeare copyright. Work began fairly early in 1746 for Johnson's manuscript draft of his plan, entitled "A Short Scheme for compiling a new Dictionary of the English Language," now in the Hyde collection, is dated 20 April, 1746. The manuscript was read by at least two readers who made notes an comments on it. Johnson then revised and rewrote his "Short Scheme" and had the second version copied out by a professional scribe… The faircopy was apparently read by Lord Chesterfield to whom the published version was addressed … In August 1747 the Plan was published. There are two versions of the original quarto pamphlet, the first bearing the drop-head title on p. 1 "To the Right Honorable Philip Dormer, Earl of Chesterfield… The first signed sheet A containing pp. 1-8 was then canceled and reprinted, the second version having no drop-head title on p. 1, and differing in a few minor readings… When the Dictionary was about to appear in February 1755, the Plan was reprinted from the non-Chesterfield version, as an octavo pamphlet, still bearing the date of 1747" (Alston). Alston V, 361; Courtney & Smith, p. 20; Chapman & Hazen, p. 130; Kennedy 6234.

        Nouvelles découvertes faites avec le microscope par T. Needham. Avec un Mémoire sur les polypes à bouquet, et sur ceux en entonnoir par Trembley

      1747 - [16]-179-[1] pp., 7 pl. depl. A Leide, de l'Imp. d'Elie Luzac fils, 1747, in-12, [16]-179-[1] pp, 7 pl. depl, veau marbré de l'époque, dos à 2 nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, tranches rouges, roulette sur les coupes, 7 gravures en taille-douce : la dernière figure le microscope aquatique simple de Trembley. Édition originale de la traduction française du texte de Needham. L'ouvrage a paru à l'origine à Londres sous le titre de An Account of Some Microscopical Discoveries en 1745. La même année a paru un second tirage, portant un nouveau titre, New Miscroscopical Discoveries. Needham (1713-1781) rend compte ici d'une découverte faite alors qu'il avait placé des grains de pollen dans l'eau pour effectuer des observations au microscope : un grand nombre de ces grains éclatent en globules minuscules, ce qu'il avait déjà pu observer sur les stigmates des fleurs examinés dans l'eau ; il parvient ainsi à la conclusion que les globules constituent une substance fertilisante (chapitre VII : "Sur la poussière qui féconde les plantes"). Il tente également d'apporter un argument capital pour la théorie de la génération spontanée en prouvant, de manière empirique, que les oeufs et les vers peuvent surgir de la viande avariée. L'ouvrage est accompagné de la Lettre du naturaliste genevois Abraham Trembley (1710-1784) à Mr. Folkes et du Mémoire sur les polypes à bouquet : l'édition originale de ces textes avait d'abord paru en anglais dans les Philosophical Transactions. for the Years 1744 and 1745 (vol 43, London, 1746, pp. 169-183 : "Translation of a Letter from Mr. Abraham Trembley, F. R. S. to the President, with Observations upon Several Newly Discover'd Species of Fresh-Water Polypi"), mais sans la planche qui représente le microscope de Trembley. Il est représenté ici pour la première fois (planche VII) et décrit par le traducteur de cette manière : "[la planche] représente l'appareil que Mr. Trembley emploie pour observer les insectes dans l'eau ; je connois toute l'utilité par ma propre expérience (.). Ceux qui ne seront pas à portée de faire construire les portes-loupes, qui sont la principale pièce de cet appareil, en trouveront ici à Leide, chez Mr. Jean van Musschenbroek (Avertissement, pp. [10]-[11]). Le microscope se compose en effet d'un bocal de verre et d'un bras de Musschenbroek avec un verre grossissant pouvant être déplacé contre le récipient. Les Philosophical Translations en donneront à leur tour une représentation en 1748 (for the year 1746) pour l'article de Trembley "Observations upon Several Species of Small Water Insects of the Polypus Kind" (pp. 627-655). De la bibliothèque de Jean-Baptiste Huzard, avec son cachet ex-libris reprenant sa signature : "Huzard de l'Institut". Huzard (1755-1838) fut Élève puis professeur à l'École vétérinaire d'Alfort.

Hof hade omfattande naturalhistoriska intressen som han delgav sina elever, varav flera blev framstående naturvetenskapsmän, till exempel Torbern Bergman, Adam och Johan Afzelius, Johan Abraham och Leonard Gyllenhaal samt Anders Dahl. Han var dock framför allt språkforskare, särskilt intresserad av samtidens svenska språk. Hans ordbok över västgötadialekten omfattade 3 000 ord.
