        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.

La mancanza di titolo per la stanza. la coda aperta mascella superiore. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, rare, dont la première édition semble avoir parue en 1715. 2 frontispices et 4 figures pour le tome I, 2 pour le second, l'ensemble non signé. Pages de titre en rouge et noir. Reliure en pleine basane brune glacée d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre de maroquin rouge. Coiffes arrachées. Manque à la pièce de titre. Mors supérieur ouvert en queue.  En 1609 parut Homicidio de la fidelidad y la defensa del honor, qui rassemblait pour la première fois en France sous un titre espagnol inventé divers textes et histoires extraits de Don Quichotte en français dans la traduction de Nicolas Baudoin. Ces premiers extraits se rassemblaient sur 125 pages, ils ont été augmenté depuis l'édition de 1715 d'une seconde partie formée de nouvelles histoires. Le texte de Cervantes, mais aussi les noms ont été changés pour le public français friand alors de pastorales, et certains passages ont été forgés complètement. Rappelons que la première édition du Quichotte a lieu en 1605 et sa première traduction française en 1614. Cet ouvrage témoigne donc directement d'une adaptation du Quichotte pour le public français, et d'une recréation de l'original ; l'ouvrage présenté sous formes de nouvelles est d'ailleurs parfaitement cohérent. On fit paraître à nouveau le livre après le succès remporté par la nouvelle traduction de Filleau de Saint Martin à la fin du XVIIe, comme de nouvelle aventures. Curiosité indispensable à tous les amateurs du chevalier à la triste figure et de sa réception en France. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

        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.

      (New York): Printed by James Parker, in New-York, 1747; and a few Copies are to be sold by him, and Benjamin Franklin, in Philadelphia. (1747). First. 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. Contents: pp. [1] title; [2] errata; 3-81 text (printed in two columns); 82-124 schedules I-XIV; [3 folded maps]; 1-11 "By the Council of Proprietors ... 25th Day of March, 1746 ..."

        La philosophie du bon sens

      New edition, reprint of the increased volume of the second edition 1740. It is illustrated with a portrait and a curious allegorical figure in the first volume, as well as a large thumbnail title to the Epistle .. Pages titles in red and black. Full mottled calf iced contemporary. Part of title and volume number in red morocco. 3 corners bumped. Slight crack in the upper joint of Volume II. Despite the shortcomings announced, fine copy, in a very handsome appearance. Implementation of a free thinker of the Enlightenment, the philosophy of common sense is an examination of prejudice and all branches of knowledge in the light of the assumption of skepticism; the author of this assumption uncertainty is beneficial as to the truth of things; the book was considered dangerous enough to be banned by the Parliament and thus Argens wrote most of his books in Holland paper, in the shelter of an arrest. Although praised by Voltaire, the work was condemned by Kant. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Good copy with ample margins. ----Norman 34; DSB I, p.113; Sotheran 71; Honeyman 806. - First edition. "In 1747 d'Alembert published two more important works, one of which, the Réflexions sur la cause générale des Vents, won a prize from the Prussian Academy. In it appear the first general use of partial differential equations in mathematical physics. Euler later perfected the techniques of using these equations ... D'Alembert's treatise on winds was the only of his works honored by a prize and, ironically, was later shown to be based on insufficient assumptions. D'Alembert assumed that wind patterns were the result of tidal effects on the atmosphere, and he relegated the influence of heat to a minor role, one that caused only local variations from the general circulation. Still, as a work on atmospheric tides it was successful, and Lagrange continued to praise d'Alemberts's efforts many years later." (DSB I, p.113). Very Good.

Woodcut headpieces, woodcuts of three forms of tree growth on p. 169. Recent marbled boards, spine with gilt lettering piece, new endpapers. Text only little browned, very minor faint spotting. Provenance: library of Walter Pagel. A fine, clean and unmarked copy. ----Dibner 23; Evans 82; Norman 1193; Pritzel 4524. - THE VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of this collection, inluding Jungius, Doxoscopiae physicae minores (first edition 1662) and Isagogae phytoscopia, first printed in Praecipuae Opiniones Physicae (1679); and Giuseppe degli Aromatari's Epistola de generatione plantarum ex seminibus first printed in his Disputatio de rabie contagiosa (1625). This collection reprints Jungius' seminal works in the history of botany. Jungius gave botany much of its present nomenclature and first clearly divided the subject into morphology, physiology and ecology. Linnaeus based his system of nomenclature on Jungius' work, via Ray's Historia plantarum (1686-1704). Accused of heresy, most of his writings were only published after his death. 'Some few treatises were published by his pupils, among them one entitled Isagoge phytoscopica (Handbook of Botanical Study). This work, comprising a volume of 46 quarto pages, must be regarded as one of the pioneering works in botany. It gives a concentrated account of the theory of botany, under the obvious influence of Cesalpino's, but without the latter's profitless Aristotelian speculations... The whole exposition, with its concise, vigorous sentences and its analyses of different parts of the plant drawn up in tabular form, is more reminiscent of Linnaeus' work than that of any other of the early botanists. Linnaeus, in fact, mentions Jung as his precursor as far as the drawing up of rules for the description of flowers is concerned and actually took up the characteristic description of plant-organs at the point where Jung had finished and certainly brought it up to a far higher standard.' (Nordenskiöld pp. 194-95). The edition also includes Giuseppe degli Aromatari's letter on the germination of plants from seeds. Jungius' published works were based on transcripts of lectures, edited shortly after his death and annotated by his students Martin Fogel and Johann Vaget. Presumably the rarity of the earlier publications meant that McLean Evans could only obtain the Opuscula to represent Jungius' 'epochal achievement', and Dibner as his 'herald'. Julius von Sachs, trs. Henry E. F. Garnsey, History of Botany (1890), pp. 58-63; Erik Nordenskiöld, trs. Leonard Bucknall Eyre, The History of Biology (1928); A. G. Morton, History of Botanical Science (1981) pp. 167-75. (R. Gaskell, Books from the Library of Walter Pagel, Pt. 2, 104). Very Good.

Good copy with ample margins. ----Norman 34; DSB I, p.113; Sotheran 71; Honeyman 806. - First edition. "In 1747 d'Alembert published two more important works, one of which, the Réflexions sur la cause générale des Vents, won a prize from the Prussian Academy. In it appear the first general use of partial differential equations in mathematical physics. Euler later perfected the techniques of using these equations ... D'Alembert's treatise on winds was the only of his works honored by a prize and, ironically, was later shown to be based on insufficient assumptions. D'Alembert assumed that wind patterns were the result of tidal effects on the atmosphere, and he relegated the influence of heat to a minor role, one that caused only local variations from the general circulation. Still, as a work on atmospheric tides it was successful, and Lagrange continued to praise d'Alemberts's efforts many years later." (DSB I, p.113). Very Good.

        Rélation exacte et circonstanciée du combat de l'escadre angloise commandée

      Nantes: chez N. Verger, [1747]. Printed bifolium, octavo. An intriguing and ephemeral French publication, telling of the surrender of a French convoy to Anson. It was published in Nantes and prints a letter sent from Plymouth by the Chevalier de Saint-George (a rather ironic name in the context), who was on the Invincible (no comment) and was the officer who surrendered his sword to Anson to cede the fleet.In three concise pages the Chevalier describes the events when the French squadron under the command of de la Jonquière engaged Anson's fleet near Cap Finistere. The battle was of tremendous significance in the War of the Austrian Succession as it went a long way towards grounding the French fleet. The surrender of the French was taken by Anson himself, who was sailing on his old ship the Centurion, the same ship on which he had completed his circumnavigation three years earlier. The fourth page lists the ships involved, including three French East India Company vessels.The publisher of this most uncommon work was the Nantes-based Nicolas Verger, who was long-established as a printer for the King, and who issued all manner of royal statutes and decrees in the first half of the eighteenth century. His involvement no doubt gave this a quasi-official status, and it is likely that it was printed as the first news of the disaster to reach France. Some wear and old folds but very good.

        Le cuisinier gascon. Nouvelle édition à laquelle on a joint la Lettre du patissier anglais.

      Amsterdam, 1747. ____ Seconde édition, en partie originale, elle est augmentée de la "Lettre du patissier anglais". Ce petit traité de cuisine contient peu de recettes, mais elles sont pour la plupart, assez recherchées et désignées sous des noms pittoresques. C'est ainsi que l'on y trouve les bignets bachiques, le hachis d'œufs sans malice, les oeufs au soleil, les poulets à l'allure nouvelle, en chauves-souris, en culottes, les poulets vilains ou à la motte, les sauces à la marotte, au bleu céleste, à la demoiselle, le veau en crotte d'âne roulé à la Neuteau, etc. "Louis-Auguste de Bourbon (1700-1755), était le fils aîné du duc du Maine et de Louise-Bénédictine de Bourbon-Condé, la petite-fille du Grand Condé. Un livre lui a été dédié, il s'agit du Cuisinier gascon. Cet anonymat ne trompait personne, du moins à la cour, car tout le monde savait qu'il était de la main de Louis-Auguste de Bourbon lui-même. Ce 'Cuisinier gascon' est considéré comme l'un des livres de cuisine les plus célèbres du XVIIIe siècle." (Bertrand Galimard Flavigny). Très bel exemplaire. Vicaire 234. ***** Second edition, enlarged, of one of the most famous book of French cooking. In-12. Collation : (8), 244 pp. Veau marbré, dos orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        Copper Medal in commemoration of his 1740-1744 Circumnavigation and 1747 defeat of the French at Cap Finisterre.

      London: Thomas Pingo, 1747. Copper medal, 43.3 mm., with Anson crowned by Victory at right, on the reverse Victory on hippocamp, the names of Anson's officers around; corrected CAMPBEL variety, remnants of 'H' faintly visible, about uncirculated, some mint color remaining, slight abrasions on the obverse. An excellent copper medal, commemorating Lord Anson's circumnavigation of the Globe and his 1747 defeat of the French at Cap Finisterre off the coast off Spain.George Anson was one of the most successful British naval commanders of the eighteenth-century, famous for his notoriously difficult circumnavigation of the globe from 1740-1744 as commander of the Centurion. In 1739 he had been given command of a Pacific squadron to raid Spanish possessions, a period at sea which saw him lose five of his six ships and literally most of his crew, but also return with a staggering £400,000 in bounty after his capture of the Manila treasure galleon. 'After the fleet's failure off Toulon in February the navy stood in need of a popular triumph, and the capture of a treasure galleon was in the public mind the next best thing to a fleet victory. Day after day the newspapers carried reports of the homecoming: the procession from Portsmouth to London, with thirty-two wagons laden with treasure; the feting of Anson and his men; details of the prize money and the dispute over its allocation... ' (Williams, p. 229). Anson went on to a long career and, as this medal also commemorates, was instrumental in the French defeat at Finisterre off the Spanish coast on 3 May 1747, where Anson's thirteen ships of the line defeated the French admiral De la Jonquiere's smaller fleet in just three hours with most of the French men-of-war taken.This medal was struck for both of Anson's great achievements, and was commissioned from Thomas Pingo (1692-1776), then assistant engraver at the Royal Mint. On the obverse is a bust of the admiral crowned with a laurel by Victory and the caption 'Vict. Mai III MDCCXLVII'. The reverse bears the legend 'Circumnavigation' and the names of other officers on the famous journey, themselves famous names in the British navy: Keppel, Saumarez, Saunders, Brett, Dennis, and Campbel.When the medal was originally issued the name of the junior officer Campbel was mis-engraved "Camphel". The present medal is an example of the issue known as the corrected "Campbel" variety, with only remnants of the mis-engraved 'H'. Eimer suggests that the medal was commissioned by Thomas Anson, George's brother and himself a collector of medals. In this light, it has plausibly been argued that the long-accepted date of production of 1747 is in fact far too early, and that it was not until 1768, six years after Anson's death, that this medal was commissioned and struck.

        Le Malheureux Rabby Cabaliste à Francfort sur le Mein 1711. Der Rabbiner Ben Cohn und zwei Knaben werden von einer plötzlichen Lichterscheinung geblendet, während sie sich über einige Bücher beugen.

      - Aquatinta nach einem Gemälde von Johann Andreas Benjamin Nothnagel (1747-1804), entstanden 1772, auf Bütten, verso mit Bleistift signiert „Nothnagel". 28,7:21,5 cm. – Durchgehend leicht stockfleckig. Probedruck vor aller Schrift, mit winzigem Rändchen um die Plattenkante. – Sehr selten! Literatur: Ph. Fr. Gwinner, Kunst und Künstler in Frankfurt am Main vom dreizehnten Jahrhundert bis zur Eröffnung des Städel’schen Kunstinstituts. Frankfurt a.M., 1862, S. 378. Vergleichsliteratur: Derselbe, Dasselbe, S. 357 (Nothnagel). Das Gemälde von Nothnagel befindet sich heute im Jüdischen Museum, Frankfurt a.M. Gwinner schreibt darüber: „ in dem Prehn’schen Kabinet sieht man u.a. die Darstellung der Sage von dem Rabbi Naphtali Cohen, durch dessen kabalistische Experimente der große Brand entstanden sein soll, welcher am 14. Januar 1711 den größten Theil der Judengasse in Asche legte. Dieses Bild ist in gleicher Größe von Regina Catharina Quarry in aquatinta geäzt worden. In dem Katalog des Prehn’schen Cabinets wird diese Darstellung von Passavant irrtümlich auf den großen Judenbrand von 1346 bezogen." In ihrer Geburtsstadt absolvierte die Künstlerin eine Ausbildung bei J. Gottlieb (1739-1808) und Maria Katharina Prestel (1747-1794), mit denen sie möglicherweise verwandt war. Auf deren Antrieb hin folgte sie ihnen 1783 nach Frankfurt am Main, wo sie zunächst in der Werkstatt ihrer Lehrer tätig war. 1786 heiratete sie den englischen Sprachlehrer und späteren Verleger J.C. Quarry, mit dem sie 1807 nach Paris zog, wo sie den offiziellen Namen „Carey" führten. 1793 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Kasseler Akademie.
