        Philosophische Abhandlung von Gespenstern. Worinn zugleich kurtze Nachricht von dem Wustermarckischen Kobold gegeben wird.

      Berlin, Haude und Spener 1747.. 80 S. Rückenbroschur. Grässe, BMP 23. - Georg Wilhelm Wegner (1692-1765), Pfarrer in Germendorf und Nassenheide, berichtet nur kurz über die Aufsehen erregenden Vorkommnisse im Pfarrhaus von Wustermark, das angeblich von einem Poltergeist über Jahre heimgesucht wurde. Wegner argumentiert mit rationalistischen Begründungen und Erklärungen von Phänomen seinen Kampf gegen den Aberglauben. Unter dem Pseudonym Tharsander veröffentlichte Wegner zahlreiche aufklärerische Werke, das bekannteste ist wohl "Die Vampyren und schmatzende Todten".

        DIE BITTRE SUSE ODER DAS GESANG DER EINSAMEN TURTEL TAUBE, DER CHRISTLICHEN KIRCHEN HIER AUF ERDEN...[manuscript title]

      Ephrata, 1747. Small quarto. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Spine heavily worn, split in center. Later 19th- century ownership inscription on front fly leaf. Slight wear and foxing to some leaves, and some ink burn, resulting in splits to some leaves. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. A unique and spectacular manuscript hymnbook created by the religious community at Ephrata, Pennsylvania, founded by Johann Conrad Beissel. This manuscript is from the period when the community was at its zenith, and is an outstanding example of the Frakturschriften for which the Ephrata Cloister is known. It contains over 250 pages of manuscript music, some of it likely original compositions. The printed register at the end contains 375 hymn listings, and an additional fifteen pieces of music precede the main body of the work. Johann Conrad Beissel (1692-1768) was born in Germany and orphaned at an early age. A charismatic and engaging personality, he tried on several religious movements, and eventually emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1720 after being banished from his homeland for radical religious beliefs. Beissel spent part of the 1720s with the Dunkards in Germantown and Lancaster County before his controversial beliefs about celibacy and Sabbath-keeping caused a rift with his fellow congregants. He then established himself as a hermit on the banks of the Cocalico River, where he was eventually joined by other like-minded individuals who wished to follow his teachings, and so founded the Ephrata Cloister in 1732. "What began as a hermitage for a small group of devoted individuals grew into a thriving community of nearly 80 celibate members supported by an estimated 200 family members from the region at its zenith in the mid-18th century. During that period much of the activity surrounded the charismatic founder and leader, Conrad Beissel. His theology, a hybrid of pietism and mysticism, encouraged celibacy, Sabbath worship, Anabaptism, and the ascetic life, yet provided room for families, limited industry, and creative expression" - Ephrata website. "Both within and without Ephrata, Beissel aroused controversy. His opposition to the institution of marriage early divided his congregation, as did his refusal to tolerate the community's money-making industries. His adoption of the Jewish sabbath and work on Sunday violated provincial laws and aroused the opposition of civil officials. That women left their husbands and homes to be with Beissel produced their husbands' ever-lasting hostility and even provoked one to attack Beissel physically. Beissel's willingness to permit women to spend nights in his cabin and his initial housing of men and women in the same building led to rumors of sexual promiscuity that prompted a neighbor to try to set fire to the cloister" - ANB. The community became known for its self-composed a cappella music, Germanic calligraphy known as Frakturschriften, and the complete publishing center which included a paper mill, printing office, and book bindery. Printing at Ephrata began in 1745, the third geographical location of printing in Pennsylvania. In fact, the largest book printed in America before 1800, numbering more than 1,500 pages, was published at the Ephrata printing shop in 1748. The first printed hymnbook of the cloister was called the "Turtle-Taube (Turtle Dove)," and contained more than 400 of the community's hymns, most of which Beissel had written. It was issued in 1747, the same year as this manuscript. In addition to the press, the Cloister also had a scriptorium which produced beautiful manuscript hymnals and other works. Beissel composed many original hymns for the community, which then produced manuscript volumes containing both the words and, separately, the music. He is said to have composed more than 4,000 lines of poetry, almost all of it religious, some of it set to music also of his composition. "For the community's worship, he developed distinctive types of choral harmony and antiphonal singing, and he frequently required the members to sing in this style on late night walks around Ephrata" - ANB. Manuscript production at Ephrata was used as a form not only of book production, but also as a meditation and spiritual act. Beissel established a monastic style of living for the Cloister in 1735, three years after its founding, and the earliest output of the scriptorium dates to this time. Most of the fine manuscript work was likely done by the Sisters (the Cloister was segregated by gender), while the Brothers maintained the printing press. The scriptorium flourished during the 1740s and 1750s, declining near the end of that decade. The present manuscript was produced while the scriptorium was at the pinnacle of its output and handiwork. This volume, with its elaborate fraktur titlepage, was likely a presentation copy rather than a standard, everyday hymnbook. The Ephrata community produced virtually the only original hymn texts and tunes during the colonial era. It was meant to be used with the printed words from the 1747 edition of DAS GESANG DER EINSAMEN UND VERLASSENEN TURTEL-TAUBE.... A bearded face has been drawn in each of the two upper corners of the fraktur, a highly interesting and unusual feature of the work. It is inscribed on the front fly leaf with a later ownership inscription which reads, "Abm. Burger's Book / January 29, 1830," which is followed by a gift inscription: "A Present of a Music Book from / Abm. Burger / to / Elder Lucius Crandal / Plainfield / Essex County / N.J. / December 17th 1854." These lines were probably written by Abraham Berger (1795-1856), a member of the Snow Hill Congregation in Quincy, Pennsylvania, an offshoot of the Ephrata community located about ninety miles to the southwest. When Ephrata was in its decline in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Snow Hill was in its prime, and as a result, many of the books and manuscripts were transferred from Ephrata to Snow Hill. This would explain how and why Berger may have acquired the volume. The gift recipient, Lucius Crandall (1810-76), was an elder and minister in the Seventh Day Baptist Church, first at Plainfield, New Jersey, and later at congregations in Rhode Island and New York. The Ephrata Cloister congregation, following its incorporation in 1814, became known as the Seventh Day Baptists of Ephrata, also referred to as the German Seventh Day Baptists. While Ephrata had no official ties or affiliation to the Seventh Day Baptist Church with which Crandall was affiliated, the two denominations formed a close relationship. This was true to the extent that in the later 19th century, Crandall's denomination included the annual reports of the Ephrata and Snow Hill congregations in their own annual reports. Ministers and members would travel from Crandall's Seventh Day Baptist Church to the Cloisters at Ephrata for feast days and baptisms, etc., providing a link between the two men. The Winterthur Library and Museum in Delaware has a significant collection of these hymnals, as noted by Kari Main in her excellent 1997 article on the subject (she compares eight hymnals). Columbia University has half a dozen manuscript hymnals, as well, and further collections can be found at the Ephrata Cloister, The Free Library of Philadelphia, the Library of Congress, and the Hershey Museum. Many of these derive from the great Samuel Pennypacker collection, dispersed at auction in 1908. Such manuscript works are incredibly rare on the market today, and the present copy is an especially fine example of these remarkable manuscripts.

        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, 1747. Folio. Late 19th-century polished calf, spine and boards gilt, leather label. Heraldic bookplate on front pastedown, contemporary ownership inscription of Hendrick Remsen on front fly leaf. Occasional minor stains. Bound at the end is the March 7, 1747-48 issue of THE NEW-YORK GAZETTE (No. 268). A very good copy. This highly important work is of interest for a number of reasons: its primary author, James Alexander, achieved great fame as the lawyer of Peter Zenger; it contains some of the first maps engraved in America; it was seen through the press by Benjamin Franklin and his New York partner, James Parker; and it is a vital document in settling the long-standing land disputes of colonial New Jersey. Streeter calls it "one of the most remarkable documents of colonial times." The land disputes dealt with in this document had their origins in overlapping Crown grants made by Charles II, which came to a head in arguments over quitrents and surveys in the 1720s. James Alexander, who had been surveyor-general of New Jersey before becoming a lawyer and winning fame as the successful defender of Zenger, undertook on behalf of the Board of Proprietors of the Eastern Division of New Jersey to assemble the evidence for a Bill in Chancery to settle the matter. He assembled the material published here in the 1740s, arguing the proprietors' case with "great subtlety and complexity," according to Streeter. Alexander consulted Benjamin Franklin concerning publication, and the printing work of the letterpress was executed by James Parker of New York, a partner of Franklin. However, Franklin advised that proper map engraving could not be accomplished in Philadelphia or New York, and work on the three maps was farmed out to James Turner of Boston. The now-famed cartographer, Lewis Evans, drew the maps, the first showing North America from Cape Hatteras to Boston; the second showing early survey and boundary lines, Indian paths, and major roads; and the third showing surveys and purchases in East New Jersey. The maps were available to purchasers in both colored and uncolored format. Those present here are in the uncolored state. These are some of the earliest maps drawn and engraved in the colonies, and as such are of tremendous importance. Additional information on the history of A BILL IN THE CHANCERY... can be found in Joseph Felcone's bibliography, cited below.

        POLYMETIS: OR, AN ENQUIRY CONCERNING THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE WORKS OF THE ROMAN POETS, AND THE REMAINS OF THE ANTIENT ARTISTS BEING AN ATTEMPT TO ILLUSTRATE THEM MUTUALLY FROM ONE ANOTHER

      London: Printed for R. Dodsley, 1747.. xii,361pp. plus forty-one copperplate engravings by Boitard (some double- spread). Folio. Engraved portrait after Vertue. Full contemporary mottled calf, handsomely rebacked and recornered to style, gilt label. Engraved tail pieces. Some minor edgewear to boards, foxing to endsheets and some of the plates, otherwise a crisp, very good copy. First edition of this major work by Pope's friend and promoter, a treatise on classical mythology as illustrated by ancient works of art and Latin writers. "His collections for the book were commenced in 1732 under the title of ?'Noctes Florentinæ.?' and, although severely criticised for its total neglect of Greek authors, brought its author £1,500. A fourth edition appeared in 1777, and an abridgment in 1802. Like the ?'Essay on the Odyssey,?' it is in the form of dialogue. Although inadequate from the first, and long ago superseded, it remains an agreeable book, owing to the urbanity of its old- fashioned scholarship, the justice of some incidental observations, and its affluent stores of quotation; and, as an intellectual if heterogeneous banquet, may be compared with the ?'Deipnosophists?' of Athenæus. Gibbon speaks of its ?'taste and learning.?' ?'Polymetis?' remained Spence's only considerable contribution to classical scholarship..."- DNB NCBEL II:1748. ESTC T133753

Er war ein enger Freund William Hogarths (1697 - 1764) und Schüler des berühmten französischen Kupferstechers Bernard Picart (1673 - 1733). Er war Träger des "Bluemantle" des College of Arms von 1743 - 1747. Um 1735 gestaltete er eine Bilderserie von zehn Motiven, welche die Seeschlacht gegen die Spanische Armada zeigen, für das Britische Parlament aus. Das dazugehörige Werk "The Tapestry Hangings of the House of Lords" erschien 1739 in London. Seine großartige Arbeit wurde durch einen "Act of Parliament" festgehalten und seine lebenslangen Bezüge gesichert. Zur Vervollständigung der Bilderserie im Parlament fertigte er fünf weitere großformatige Kupferstiche an. John Pine (1690 - 1756) was admired in Britain as the foremost heraldic and decorative engraver of his generation. He was a close friend of William Hogarth (1697 - 1764) and a scholar the famous French engraver Bernard Picart (1673 - 1733). His first engravings exhibited the splendid ceremonial of the installation of the knights of the bath in 1725. These were followed by his admirable prints, ten in number, representing the tapestry hangings in the House of Lords, showing the fight against the Spanish Armada. These were so highly approved, that the Parliament passed an act to secure the emolument arising from their publication to him. He engraved five other plates of the same size, to accompany them, being/Diese zeigen: 1.

Some light browning, contemporary speckled calf, gilt amorial device to upper board, surface worming to upper board, intricate gilt compartments with gilt lettered labels to spine, sm. label to tail of spine with minor loss to leather. The author attempted to establish - with no historical basis - that Freemasonry originated in England with Oliver Cromwell ?'who is supposed to have employed it as a political engine to aid him in the dethronement of Charles I, in the abolition of the monarchy, and in the foundation of a republic on its ruins, with himself for its head...?' The resultant tome is apparently ?'The armory from which all the enemies of Masonry have since delved their weapons of abuse.?' US$743

        Georg Liegelsteiners wohlgezogener Zwerg-Baum oder Gründlicher Unterricht wie die Frantz-Bäume gewartet werden müssen, daß selbige bald und gute Früchte bringen, und damit grösserer Nutzen, als mit hohen Bäumen zu schaffen [...].

      Leipzig, Wolfgang Deer, 1747.. 8vo. (10), 143, (9) pp. With fine woodcut frontispiece showing saw and pruning knife, 1 engraved folding plate, and 30 woodcut text illustrations. Contemp. half calf and speckled boards, spine richly gilt with gilt lettered label.. The first western book on the cultivation of dwarf trees, or "bonsai". Georg Liegelsteiner was court gardener to the Archbishop of Salzburg in Austria, Count Franz Anton Harrach. His book on dwarf trees, although now largely forgotten and overlooked in botanical and horticultural literature, proved extraordinarily successful in its day, achieving six editions including the original edition of 1705. Liegelsteiner "writes about dwarfing trees so that they look like a very beautiful big tree, but only much smaller. He understands tree physiology like only a small minority of bonsai enthusiasts today. He explains in detail how to shorten roots and transplant trees often, how to shorten branches, how to correct a one-sided tree. He explains how to cut back a tree to a stump, let the new shoots grow, cut them back at strategic points, let the new shoots grown again and cut them back. It is exactly the 'Chinese' clip-and-grow technique. He makes drawings which explain the development of a dwarf tree in a way that could not be improved" (Walter Pall, Dwarf Trees of George Liegelsteiner, in: Bonsai Magazine 3 [2000]). The edition offered here is the final one, published after the death of its author, with a very interesting new preface which attempts to sketch a history of dwarf trees in Europe. It suggests that the art of growing Bonsai trees came to Versailles in the late 17th century. One of the Versailles gardeners, Grottendorf, settled in Berlin and experimented more on it. Eventually he was appointed head gardener to the wealthy merchant and Councillor Georg Bose's garden, the "Kleinbosischer Garten", in Leipzig. Liegelsteiner received advice from Grottendorf about the art of growing dwarf trees. - OCLC locates the 2 copies in US: Berkeley and National Agriculture Library; also: Berkeley (1703 ed.); Delaware, Agricult.

        Histoire de Gil Blas de Santillane

      à Paris: Par les libraires associés, 1747. Fine. Par les libraires associés, à Paris 1747, 4 tomes en 4 Vol. in 12 (10x17cm), (8) 402pp. (6) et (4) 342pp. (3) et (8) 360pp. et (8) 369pp. (10), relié. - Final edition, important, revised by the author, on which all future editions will be made. It should not be confused with counterfeiting (which differs by a few differences) published on the same date and is not a reprint of the first edition published in 1715 (first 2 volumes), 1724 (third volume) and 1735 (fourth volumes). This edition is rare and sought after. Illustrated with 30 figures re-engraved from the original published in three editions. Full mottled calf and cold. Back tooled raised. Part of title and volume number in red morocco. Rubbings, some corners bumped. (It is possible that parts of titles and volume numbers have been redone in the late eighteenth century). Good copy. Lovely series. Our copy seems to have a notable feature; Indeed the third volume does not seem perfectly similar to the other; headbands titles are different and the figures are not pages designated by the Small, precisely because we think the third book is part of the infringement in 1747; In addition it has two figures below should have the right edition 1747; we can only guess by what mystery it is isolated in this series. However, the title page is entirely consistent with other volumes. It is now well established that one can not be accused of plagiarism immortal masterpiece of Lesage, the last fire of the baroque picaresque novel; if Lesage drew its material elsewhere, the fact remains that Gil Blas is a unique and personal work. It includes the misadventures of a picaro, frippon also possible that through its multiple meetings draws a satirical portrait of contemporary society. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition définitive, importante, révisée par l'auteur, et sur laquelle toutes les éditions futures seront faites. Il ne faut pas la confondre avec la contrefaçon (qu'on distingue par quelques différences) parue à la même date et qui n'est qu'une réimpression des éditions originales parues en 1715 (2 premiers tomes), 1724 (tome troisième) et 1735 (tomes quatrième). Cette édition est rare et recherchée. Illustrée de 30 figures regravées à partir des originaux parues dans les 3 éditions originales. Reliure en plein veau marbré et glacé. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Frottements, quelques coins émoussés. (il est possible que les pièces de titres et de tomaisons aient été refaites à la fin du XVIIIe). Bon exemplaire. Belle série. Notre exemplaire nous semble comporter une particularité notable ; en effet le troisième tome ne semble pas parfaitement similaire aux autres; les bandeaux de titres sont différents et les figures ne sont pas aux pages désignés par le Petit, précisément parce que selon nous, le troisième tome fait partie de la contrefaçon de 1747 ; en outre il comporte deux figures de moins que ne devrait posséder la bonne édition de 1747 ; nous ne pouvons deviner par quel mystère il se trouve isolé dans cette série. Cependant, la page de titre est absolument conforme aux autres volumes. Il est aujourd'hui parfaitement établi qu'on ne saurait accuser de plagiat l'immortel chef-d'oeuvre de Lesage, dernier feu baroque du roman picaresque ; si Lesage a puisé sa matière ailleurs, il n'en demeure pas moins que Gil Blas est une oeuvre originale et personnelle. On y retrouve les mésaventures d'un picaro, aussi frippon que possible, qui au travers de ses rencontres multiples dresse un portrait satirique de la société contemporaine.

      1747 - London: W. & J. Mount and T. Page, 1747. Two sheets conjined, total 450 x 820mm. Narrow margins top and bottom due to the size of the chart. A detailed chart of the English Channel based on the observations carried out in 1701 by Edmond Halley. It shows from the Scilly Islands to the Straits of Dover, with insets of the Thames Estuary, the Scilly Islands and the Solent. It was first published in Thornton's 'Atlas Maritimus', with a dedication to Admiral of the Fleet Cloudesley Shovell, ironically placed next to the Scilly Islands inset, where Shovell's fleet famously ran around, prompting the institution of the Longitude Prize.

        Familienszene am Haus, sitzende Mutter mit zwei Kindern links, rechts der Vater im Hauseingang sitzend.

      - Feder in Braun, grün und braun laviert, über Bleistift, auf Velin. 15:18 cm, auf Untersatz montiert und mit brauner Federlinie umrandet. Entwurf für eine Buchillustration. Der Schweizer Hegi war der Sohn von J. Hegi I (1747-1799), eines Goldschmieds und Kupferstechers, wurde aber nach dem Umzug der Eltern nach Stuttgart in einem Züricher Weisenhaus erzogen. Da sein zeichnerisches Talent früh erkannt wurde, kam er 1790 als Schüler zum Kupferstecher M. Pfenninger (1739-1813), den er bald mit großen Aquatintablättern übertraf, die ihm zu großem Ansehen verhalfen. Von 1796-1802 arbeitete der Künstler für den Maler und Verleger P. Birmann (1758-1844) in Straßburg, für den er auch nach seiner Rückkehr nach Zürich tätig war. Erste Radierversuche sind für 1804 dokumentiert. In dieser Technik entwickelte er eine große Meisterschaft und seine zahlreichen Arbeiten für Neujahrsblätter, Almanache und lit. Werke gehören zu den besten zeitgenössischen Leistungen. Die mittelalterlichen Bauwerke seiner Vaterstadt, ihre Vergangenheit, Sitten und die Trachten der Einwohner war sein bevorzugtes Sujet. In diesem Zusammenhang ist auch seine reiche Materialsammlung zur Kultur- und Architekturgeschichte des Mittelalters zu sehen.

        Principes du droit naturel

      Geneve: Chez Barrillot & fils 4to (24.3 cm, 9.55"). XXIV, 352 pp.. 1747 First edition of this lucid examination of the philosophy of natural law, written by a Swiss jurist. The Encyclopaedia Britannica says of Burlamaqui that "his fundamental principle may be described as rational utilitarianism" (IV, 836); his writings served as important source material for the political theory underpinning the Declaration of Independence. This may be a later issue of the 1747 first edition; the last line of p. 7 here begins with "de l'esprit" and the first line of p. 223 with "tage au préjudice." A companion volume to the present work, Principes du droit politique, was to be printed posthumously in 1754 and it is not present here — this volume being a very satisfactory stand-alone, arriving at a conclusion describing the "heureux accord de la lumière Naturelle & Révélée." (Conceiving of the two works as vols. I and II of a larger whole is an anachronism in period to 1766 when de Felice was to bring them together for the first time.) Recent quarter calf over marbled paper–covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped leather labels and gilt-stamped decorations in compartments. Pages age-toned, with light foxing in spots; outer and lower edges of title-page showing offsetting from original turn-ins.

        La philosophie du bon sens

      A La Haye: Chez Pierre Paupie, 1747. Fine. Chez Pierre Paupie, A La Haye 1747, 2 tomes en 2 Vol. in 12 (9,5x17cm), (2) XII 480pp. et VIII 468pp., relié. - 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. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, réimpression de l'édition augmentée du second volume de 1740. Elle est illustrée d'un portrait et d'une curieuse figure allégorique au premier volume, ainsi que d'une grande vignette de titre à l'épitre.. Pages de titres en rouge et noir. Reliure en plein veau marbré glacé d'époque. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. 3 coins émoussés. Légère fente au mors supérieur du tome II. Malgré les défauts annoncés, bel exemplaire, au fort bel aspect. Oeuvre d'un libre penseur des Lumières, la philosophie du bon sens est un examen des préjugés et de toutes les branches des connaissances à la lueur du postulat du scepticisme ; pour l'auteur ce postulat de l'incertitude est salutaire quant à la vérité des choses ; le livre fut jugé suffisamment dangereux pour être interdit par le Parlement et d'Argens écrivit ainsi la plupart de ses livres en Hollande, à l'abris d'une arrestation. Bien que salué par Voltaire, l'oeuvre fut condamné par Kant.
