In so doing he was hijacking his brother Henry Benedict, who had proposed to do just that.himself.The previous September, after 5 months in the heather following Culloden, Bonnie Prince Charlie was the most famous man in Europe. He took ship with the French from Loch nan Uamh on 20th September (old style) and landed at Roscoff.on10th October (new style). He arrived in Paris to enormous cheering crowds. One of the first to entertain him to supper was the Comte d'Argenson, who had kept abreast of his campaign with frequent reports from the Marquis d'Éguilles. (D'Éguilles. was captured at Culloden but freed after negotiating the surrender of Inverness).However, the honeymoon lasted only about a fortnight.

Duhamel du Monceau
Paris: L'Imprimerie Royale, 1747. Condition: Very Good. 4to. Full contemporary calf with gilt titles and decorative spine. Engraved and woodcut initials, woodcut diagrams and head- and tail-pieces. Joints cracked, though intact. Spine laid down. Internally fine, very good overall. With the bookplate of Edward, Duke of Norfolk. First edition of an exhaustive work on the fabrication of hemp rope for ships, from raising the plant, to extracting the raw materials, to manufacturing cordage. But perhaps most significant as one of the earliest treatises on the commercial cultivation of cannabis. Includes two lovely and detailed fold-out plates of the male and female plants (both fine) that would make High Times proud. Though not exactly institutionally rare (OCLC locates ten copies of this edition, seven in the U.S.), it is so in the trade, with none currently in commerce and only a handful at auction since 1980. A second volume was published in 1769. Polak, 2858. Scott 341 (citing only the 2nd edition, this one presumably scarcer). [Attributes: First Edition]

ALEMBERT, Jean Le Rond d’
David l'aîné, Paris. Plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs orné et doré portant la pièce de titre, tranches rouges, gardes en papier marbré. Un volume in quarto (214x159 mm), (8)-xxviii-194-138 pages et 2 planches dépliantes Mors et coiffes finement restaurés Quelques rousseurs, mais globalement un très bon exemplaire Édition originale de cet important traité de météorologie scientifique. Cette édition de Paris parue en même temps que celle de Berlin est la seule à contenir aussi en 2e partie la version originale latine du texte, traduite par d'Alembert lui-même. Sur l'aspect de la météorologie, d'Alembert a sous estimé l'effet de la chaleur dont il estimait qu'elle n'avait qu'un impact local sur les vents. Ce traité est cependant d'une grande importance car c'est la première fois que sont utilisées les équations différentielles partielles en physique mathématique. Norman [34 : "Alembert’s treatise on winds contained the first general use of partial differential equations in mathematical physics, a technique later perfected by Euler."], DSB [I, p. 113 : "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 appeared the first general use of partial differential equations in mathematical physics. Euler later perfected the techniques of using these equations. The pattern was to become a familiar one : d'Alembert, Daniel Bernoulli, or Clairaut would pioneer a technique, and Euler would take it far beyond their capacity to develop it.

Hegi, Franz (1774 Lausanne ? Zürich 1850)
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.

Die Reichsabschiede bildeten die rechtliche Grundlage des Deutschen Reiches bis zum Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts! - Das Corpus recessum imperii (Sammlung aller Reichsabschiede) erschien erstmals im Jahre 1501 in München und verkörpert die Zusammenstellung der wichtigsten Gesetze und Verordnungen des Reiches, insoweit kann es als eine Art von Grundgesetz für das Deutsche Reich angesehen werden, wenngleich auch eine Reihe von privatrechtlichen Regelungen mitenthalten sind. Der Reichstag war die Zusammenkunft der Stände mit dem Kaiser. Im Ausgang des 15. Jahrhunderts hatte die Herausbildung der Reichsstände zur Konsolidierung der Reichtstagsverfassung geführt. Aus drei Kurien setzte sich der Reichstag zusammen: dem Kurfürstenrat, dem Rat der Fürsten und der Reichsstädte. Immerhin hatten die drei Kurien erreicht, daß der Kaiser bei den internen Beratungen ausgeschlossen blieb, der Kaiser hatte "vor der Türe zu steh … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Among Quaker women of her day, Sophia Hume had an extraordinary knowledge of arts, literature, and theology, to some extent the product of her years as an Anglican. Although conversion curbed and guided her intellectual pursuits within limits approved by Quakers, she yet found it hard to justify erudition by a woman, and harder to justify her public life, by her own principles. The result was a paradoxical career: as a minister and writer she upheld the traditional view that woman should lead a secluded life devoted to home and church, as a Quaker bluestocking she expounded scripture and culled quotations from ancient and modern Christian writers to defend her sect" (Notable American Women).

London: at the expense of the author, [1729-] 1731-1743 [-1747]. Dimensions: approx 14 x 20 inches. Full margins and original hand color. Copperplate engraving by Mark Catesby, from "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands". First edition, published in London in 1731-44. "These Trees usually grow to a large Size, having a light coloured smooth Bark, under which is contained a white milky Juice, of a very poisonous Nature; the Leaves are smooth, serrated, some- what short, and pointed. The Flowers grow at the Ends of the Branches, consisting of small Tufts of very little yellow pappous Blossoms, placed at Intervals, the Length of about three Inches: The Fruit was the Size of the Figure, growing erect, and shaped like a Pear, or rather a Fig; but not being ripe, or even full grown, I had no Opportunity of seeing its Seeds, which Sir Hans Sloane, in his Nat. Hist. of Jamaica says are several, somewhat resembling those of a Melon, and are contain'd in a roundish very hard Stone, with many sharp Points on each Side of it." (Catesby) In 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Catesby was enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, and he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: at the expense of the author, [1729-] 1731-1743 [-1747]. Dimensions: approx 14 x 20 inches. Full margins and original hand color. Copperplate engraving by Mark Catesby, from "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands". First edition, published in London in 1731-44. "In the Bahama Islands these Trees grow to about fifteen Inches in Thickness, and thirty or more Feet in Height; with a rough brown Bark: The Leaves are like those of the Phillirea, growing by Pairs. The Flowers are globular, composed of numerous scarlet Filaments, produced from small green Capsula's; many of the Flowers grow together on long Footstalks, at the Ends of slender Branches, making an elegant Appearance. The Flowers are succeeded by Pods, of a reddish brown Colour, containing many flatish round shining black Seeds, which when ripe are discharged from out of the Pods, but hang thereto by a scarlet mucilaginous, spongy Substance, which incloses a third Part of every Seed: The Pods grow three or four together, in a wreathed or spiral Manner, which Nature seems to have designed for displaying its Beauties to Advantage; for had the Pods been streight, as those of French Beans, these glittering Seeds would have been much obscured. The Seeds are Food of Wild Pigeons, &c." (Catesby) In 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Catesby was enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, and he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolin … [Click Below for Full Description]

In 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Catesby was enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, and he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. The result was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done. Despite Catesby's initial difficulties in finding subscribers, his striking finished product received widespread acclaim. Catesby's charming, distinctive style sets his work apart from all artists who later followed his example. The overt simplicity of his compositions is deceiving; the artist arranged each of his images with great care, often combining seemingly incongruous elements to create the most artful scene possible. Very few artists were so personally involved in the completion of a published work, and Catesby's images convey what the artist m … [Click Below for Full Description]

"This is a large Tree, with a smooth light coloured Bark, the Leaves are about the Size of those of a Pear, but more rounding at the Points. The Fruit is round, and grows in Bunches, like Currans, but larger, and of a purple Colour, with a single Stone in the Middle: In December the Fruit is ripe, and is the Food of Pigeons and many wild Animals; it is a pleasant tasted Fruit, the Wood is hard and durable: It grows on Rocks, on many of the Bahama Islands."
