      5 bind. Kbhvn.: Bind 1-4 Trykt paas Authors Trykt Bekostning, bind 5 Trykt paa Otto Christ. Wentzels Bekostning 1748-54. Rent og pænt eksemplar indbundet i halvlæder, med farvede titelfelter, fra midten af attenhundredtallet. På første binds titelblad har en tidligere ejer skrevet, at han har erhvervet bogen 3 Sep. 1748.. "Denne samling af mere end 500 epistler, skrevet ligesom levnedsbrevene til en opdigtet adressat, fremkom i tre omgange. I 1748 afsluttedes 2. bd. med ordene Slut paa andet og sidste Bind. Et par år efter siges det igen Slut paa fjerde og sidste Bind, men der kom efter Holbergs død endnu et bind, hvori den første epistel, nr. 447, sædvanligt betegnes som det fjerde levnedsbrev. Den sidste store epoke i Holbergs forfatterskab, med Epistlerne som hovedværk, kom først efter hans fyldte 60 år. Han var nu optaget af at administrere både universitetets formue og sin egen. Samtidig skrev han endnu en række komedier til den genopstandne Danske Skueplads. Ind imellem fik han tid til at skrive de mange epistler om emner. han stødte på i hverdagen og i litteraturen".

        The Elements of Logick. In four books

      London:: Printed for R. Dodsley, , 1748. London: Printed for R. Dodsley, 1748 First separate edition. Originally published in the same year as part of Dodsley's the Preceptor. Duncan's work became a standard eighteenth-century logic, going through ten editions in fifty years. The first American edition appeared in 1792. The present edition is surprisingly scarce: ESTC lists only four copies in North America: Cornell, Pennsylvania, Trinity and Michigan. Contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked. Gilt-ruled spine with burgundy morocco label. Twelvemo. Complete with half-title. A very good copy. William Duncan (1717-1760) attended Marischal College, Aberdeen, and graduated MA in 1737. He wrote The Elements of Logick to 'introduce scientifical Reasoning into natural Knowledge;" its publication came shortly before the Baconian curriculum reforms introduced at Aberdeen University by Thomas Blackwell, with whom Duncan had once studied Greek. The work's success led to his appointment as professor of philosophy at Marischal College.

        OBSERVATIONS SUR LA PRATIQUE DES ACCOUCHEMENTS

      1748. Fine. VIARDEL, Cosme. OBSERVATIONS SUR LA PRATIQUE DES ACCOUCHEMENTS, Naturels, contre nature, & Monstrueux. Paris, d'Houry Pere, 1748. Octavo. [iv]344[12]pp. + [17]ff. Contains 17 etched plates. Three, a folding portrait frontispiece and two folding obstetrical illustrations, were in the original edition of 1671. Viardel, Royal Surgeon to Queen Marie- Therese, was unusual in presenting methods which, he says, eliminate the need for instruments in childbirth, and adds a chapter on female ailments. This edition is updated with notes. Extremely rare. Folding plates have inconspicuous archival repairs; one later plate shows light stains; faint foxing to a few pages, but on the whole internally fine. Bound in an attractive contemporary mottled calf with spine label. Light wear to extremities and small nicks to spine ends. (Walleriana 9946, 1st edition.)

      The border between the colonial settlements of Portugal and Spain in Brazil and Argentina. 1748. Lisbon. Officina de Francisco Luiz Ameno. In 4to (226 mm x 157 mm). 1 [blank] + 4 ff. + 109 + 1 [blank]; including 5 mostly folding plates. Contemporary calf, raised bands to spine, gilt fillet on boards, wormholes and scratches restored. A large copy with scattered foxing and marginal damp stains; ff. 27 and view of Buenos Aires with loss of paper, restored in expert facsimile, hardly noticeable.First edition. An exceptionally rare work on the siege of Montevideo by Buenos Aires, a conflict emerged from a long-lived dispute. In 1678 the Portuguese founded the city, its geo-political importance was evident as it lies on the shore of the River Plate. The Spanish, aware of the trouble-making situation of having to share exclusivity on an important navigational river, attempted to invade the city several times. By 1726 the Capitan General Bruno Mauricio de Zabala, preventing further expansion of the Portuguese in the opposite bank of the River Plate, settles what is today Montevideo.In the midst of the Spanish-Portuguese War (1735 - 1737) the Capitan General of the River Plate Miguel de Salcedo receives orders from Madrid to attack Sacramento and reduce it to insignificance. Salcedo marched towards the city with a garrison of 1500 men and several thousand Guarani?s, who hated the Portuguese for their continuing incursions into Paraguay. The siege started on October 1735 and lasted for a few months, until Portuguese reinforcements arrived and destroyed the Spanish fleet attempting to blockade the entrance. The Portuguese defeated the Spanish both in the siege and at the naval engagements; subsequently even attempted to invade Montevideo, unsuccessfully.A handsome work, illustrated with a plan of Colonia del Sacramento, a plan of Montevideo ?amongst the earliest-, a view of Buenos Aires from the River ?the fourth view of Buenos Aires-, a map of the River Plate and an architecture plate of the Casa de Armas da Colonia do Sacramento.Not in Borba de Moraes.

        The History of a Savage Girl, Caught Wild in the Woods of Champagne

      London: R. Davidson. no date, ca. 1748. Hardcover. Good. no date, ca. 1748. 12mo, (2), ii, 116 pp. Original calf, more recent (late 19th Century) spine. Good or better with light wear to corners, old but not original endpapers. OCLC erroneously cites an edition from 1731 and a dated edition from the same publisher of 1760, but we estimate this to be slightly earlier than the 1760 edition, and a note on the title page dates the volume 1748. A famous feral child case: the girl, Marie- Angelique Memmie Le Blanc, was actually a member of the Meskwaki or Fox tribe of Native Americans and was born in what is now Wisconsin in 1712 and brought by a lady from France, via Canada to Marseilles in 1720, where she escaped and journeyed hundreds of miles to the Champagne region, where villagers found her running wild in the woods at the age of 19, having spent at least ten of those years without any human contact. Her tale was first publicized by Marie-Catherine Homassel-Hecquet and edited by de la Condamine in a pamphlet published in Paris in 1755. She died in Paris in 1775 and was one of the few feral children to acquire the ability to read, write and speak.

        AN ANSWER TO MR. FERGUSON'S ESSAY UPON THE MOON'S TURNING ROUND ITS OWN AXIS. [bound with] A SUPPLEMENT TO THE ANSWER TO MR. FERGUSON'S ESSAY ON THE MOON';S TURNING ROUND HER OWN AXIS

      London: Printed for J. Roberts, 1748. FIRST EDITIONS . Hardcover. 203 x 127 mm (8 x 5"). 52 pp.; 24 pp. FIRST EDITIONS. Recent retrospective three-quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands. With woodcut initials and headpieces and five folding plates (three in the first work; two in the second) of diagrams of rotation and orbits. With contemporary handwritten note on both titles (erroneously) attributing responsibility for the work to "John Plumptre Esqr. Of Nottingham." ESTC N-30410; ESTC N-69391. AN EXTREMELY FINE, FRESH COPY, the text and plates especially crisp, clean, and bright, and the attractive replica binding as new. These two works were written in response to "A Dissertation upon the Phænomena of the Harvest Moon. Also, the Description and Use of a New Four-Wheel'd Orrery, and an Essay upon the Moon's Turning Round Her Own Axis" (1747) written by James Ferguson (1710-76), a fellow of the Royal Society and inventor of scientific instruments who enjoyed a considerable reputation for his work on the subject. Grove (d. 1764) was among the few unconvinced by arguments that the moon rotated on an axis as it revolved around the sun. Science was not his area of expertise--he had written biographies of Cardinal Wolsey and the Dukes of Devonshire--but he sets forth his arguments like the successful attorney he also was. Both of these pamphlets are scarce: OCLC locates nine copies of the first and just three of the latter.

        MARY, Queen of France, CHARLES BRANDON Duke of Suffolk

      1748.. Copper engraving. Original colour. Fine condition. Size: 57 x 38.5 cm. (22½ x 15 inches). Spectacular print of Mary Tudor and Charles Brandon. Mary was the sister of Henry VIII and Charles Barndon was his best friend. They married in secret, and Brandon's friendship to the monarch was sorely tested. They were the grandparents to the unfortunate 'Queen for nine days' Lady Jane Grey. The surround to the portrait is richly ornamented with symbols of their relationship, from the crown and sceptre on her aside to the lance on his and the fragment of words on a ribbon, 'Cloth of Gold do not despise, tho' thou be matched with Cloth of frieze.' The print is based on a painting, then in the possession of John Lord Carteret, Earl of Granville

        Demosthenous Logoi

      Cambridge - Printed by Joseph Bentham, 1748 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The first of classical scholar John Taylor's volumes of Demosthenes, in a decorative binding. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and decoration. This edition corresponds to ESTC #N60654. Imprint from Colophon. The work is in both Latin and Greek. An edition of this text has also been published with a different title page, as Volume 3 of Demosthenous, Aischinou, Deinarchou kai Demadou ta sozomena, 1748-1757. In 1741 he published an edition of Demosthenes contra Leptinem, which he intended as a specimen of a projected complete edition of Demosthenes and Aeschines. He published the third volume of the work in 1748 and the second in 1757, but he failed to complete the first volume, which is represented only by the notes that Anthony Askew gave to Johann Jacob Reiske. He henceforth was known as Demosthenes Taylor. (DNB)John Taylor, 1704 1766, was English classical scholar. He was educated at St John's College, Cambridge. In 1732, he was appointed librarian, and in 1734 Registrary of the university. Somewhat late in life he took orders and became rector of Lawford in Essex and in 1751, canon of St Pauls in 1757. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The front hinge is held by the cords only, butis still firm. There is mild wear to the extremities, including mild rubbing withedge wear. Internally the pages are brightwith the occasional handling mark and very occasional spot. There is marginal past worming throughout that does not affect thetext. Overall the condition is good only..

Instigated by him, the English ministry approved of an expedition against Canada, and a force of over eight thousand men was raised, principally from the northern colonies. The British force which was to have co-operated was, however, detained either by bad weather or by the blundering of the ministry, and nothing came of the attempt" - Lande.

        La Grote de Marechal. Gravé d'Après le Tableau Original de Ppe. Wouvermens de dix neuf pouces de large sur vingt trois pouces de haut

      Paris: Moyreau, 1748. Engraving, coloured by hand, by J. Moyreau. 17 1/8 x 13 3/4 inches. 23 5/16 x 18 3/4 inches. A fine composition, showing life on the road in the Flemish low countries: two travellers wait outside a farrier's shop. One of their horses had thrown a shoe and the farrier prepares the hoof whilst his assistant runs out from the shop with a new shoe clasped in a pair of iron tongs. Meanwhile life continues round about. The title notes that the original painting was 23 inches high by 19 wide. 'Dutch painter and draughtsman. [Philips Wouwerman]... was the eldest son of the painter Paulus [Pauwels] Joostens Wouwerman of Alkmaar (d 28 Sept 1642), whose two other sons, Pieter Wouwerman and Johannes Wouwerman, also became painters. Philips probably received his first painting lessons from his father, none of whose work has been identified. According to Cornelis de Bie, Wouwerman was next apprenticed to Frans Hals, although no trace of Hals's influence is discernible in Wouwerman's work. Wouwerman is also reputed to have spent several weeks in 1638 or 1639 working in Hamburg in the studio of the German history painter Evert Decker (d. 1647). While in Hamburg, he married Annetje Pietersz. van Broeckhof. On 4 September 1640 Wouwerman joined the Guild of St Luke in Haarlem, in which in 1646 he held the office of vinder (agent or finder). Given the many southern elements in his landscapes, it has repeatedly been suggested that Wouwerman must have travelled to France or Italy, but there is no documentary evidence that he left his native Haarlem for more than short periods. During his lifetime he must have attained a certain degree of prosperity, as demonstrated by the relatively large sums inherited by each of his seven children after his wife's death in 1670.
