Gmelin, Johann Georg.
Typographia Academiae Scientiarvm, 1749. Mit 98 gefalteten Kupfertafeln (komplett) Erste Ausgabe. - Einzelband des seltenen Werkes des großen deutschen Sibirienforschers Johann Georg Gmelin (1709-1755). In der Geschichte der wissenschaftlichen Erschließung Sibiriens steht Gmelin zwischen Messerschmidt und Pallas (Henze 2, S.356). Mit 22 Jahren erhielt er 1731 den Professorentitel für Chemie und Naturgeschichte an der 1724 gegründeten Russischen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Sankt Petersburg. 1732 wurde er von der Zarin Anna Iwanowna zur Teilnahme an der "Großen Nordischen Expedition" ausgewählt. 1733 begab sich Gmelin mit Müller und dem französischen Astronomen Louis De lIsle auf die Expedition. Gmelins Reiseroute führte über die Stationen Jaroslawl, Kasan, Tobolsk, Semipalatinsk, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Tomsk, Jenisseisk und Irkutsk bis Jakutsk. Ein Brand im Winter 1736/37 zerstörte einen Großteil der Aufzeichnungen und Sammlungen. Später kehrte Gmelin über Irkutsk, Tomsk, Werchoturje sowie Weliki Ustjug und Schlüsselburg nach St. Petersburg zurück. Mit der zehnjährigen Expedition legte er die Grundlage für das vierbändige Werk "Flora sibirica sive Historia plantarum sibiriae" (1747-1749). - 010

[New York]: [Colhoun, Alexander]
New York, 1749. [3]pp., on a single folded sheet. Folio. Old folds, tiny repaired tear to lower foredge of first leaf, tape repairs to top edge and folds of second leaf. Hinged to modern paper backing along left edge. Overall very good. An interesting entry in the long tradition of political duels among New York state political figures, one of whom later became a New York City alderman and staunch Loyalist. This document describes in detail the duel between controversial New York political figure Oliver DeLancey (1718-1785) and Dr. Alexander Colhoun. On a separate, previous occasion DeLancey had created drama by insulting the mayor of New York, Edward Holland; DeLancey rode by Holland in March 1749, remarking to him, "were it not for your post...I would lay my horse whip over your back and whip you as long as I could stand over you." Later in the summer, on June 23, DeLancey was speaking badly of Governor George Clinton - calling him "a Damned Rogue, a Damn'd shifting fellow & the worst Govr" - while drunk at dinner at the home of Andrew Ramsay. Upon hearing this, Dr. Colhoun demanded better manners and a duel ensued at DeLancey's home in which Colhoun was stabbed but not killed. DeLancey apparently stabbed Colhoun while the latter was already lying on the ground, a breach of duel etiquette. During the course of the duel, DeLancey also injured another doctor, Richard Shuckburgh. Oliver DeLancey was the younger brother of James DeLancey, appointed Lieutenant Governor of New York by the King but whose commission was withheld by Governor Clinton for six years.

PUISIEUX (Madeleine d'Arsant de)].
1749. In-12 de XIX-(1)-194 pp., maroquin rouge, dos lisse orné, triple filet doré sur les plats, fleurons dorés aux angles, pièce de titre en maroquin vert, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale du premier ouvrage de Mme de Puisieux qui écrit dans le Discours préliminaire en sorte d'avertissement : « La plûpart des femmes n'étant faites que pour boire, manger, dormir, mettre des enfans au monde, jouer, tromper leurs amans, leurs maris, leurs Directeurs, & médire de leurs semblables ; ces maximes leurs sont inutiles ».La critique s?accorde aujourd?hui sur l?importance des écrits de Mme de Puisieux notamment pour ses prises de position en matière d?éducation féminine et celles relatives aux rapports de sexes. Ses essais lui avaient valu au moment de leur sortie une gloire certaine. Les histoires littéraires en revanche la citent peu ou alors seulement comme maîtresse de Diderot à qui elles attribuent la paternité de ses ouvrages. Mme de Puisieux se défend contre cette insinuation dans le Discours qui ouvre la seconde partie de ses Caractères (1750-1751) ; elle y montre plus généralement les difficultés que rencontrèrent les femmes de lettres de son temps.« Mme de Puisieux se mit à écrire, sans nul doute encouragée par Diderot. C'était un auteur ambitieux, rempli de vanité et de prétention intellectuelle, comme le montrent ses diverses préfaces et introductions, qu'irritait fort l'idée qu'elle ait cherché auprès de Diderot quelque aide littéraire » (Wilson, p. 55).Bel exemplaire. Quelques rousseurs. [Attributes: First Edition]

GOETHE, Johann Wolfgang von.
XIV, 15-87, [1 blank] pp.First edition in French of an important botanical study by Germany's greatest poet, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) into the origins and processes of life. His scientific career had actually started at the court of Weimar, where he was summoned in 1775, and where his duties soon included the supervision of mining in the duchy. His main goal was finding a theory to explain all living forms, plants and animals. The Urpflanze, as an Urform of nature, would show - according to Goethe - the diversity of types which had evolved and would help chart the processes of life. His ideas on plant form had a considerable influence on European botany, and some people even considered them a precursor of Darwinism. The present work is a fascinating exercise in probing the "mind of nature" via a study of its phenomena, in this case plant life. As such, it is thoroughly representative of the school of Nature Philosophy. It first appeared in German, in 1790, and Frédéric de Cingins-Lassaraz translated it into French for the present edition.Very good, untrimmed copy, slightly foxed, and somewhat dog-eared, small tear in front wrapper. Attractive copy of a study on the philosophy of botany by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.l Pritzel 3452; cf. DSB V, pp. 442-446; Norman Library 913 (first German ed.); Stiftung für Botanik 293 (first German ed.).

Gmelin, Johann Georg.
Typographia Academiae Scientiarvm, 1749. Mit 98 gefalteten Kupfertafeln (komplett) Erste Ausgabe. - Einzelband des seltenen Werkes des großen deutschen Sibirienforschers Johann Georg Gmelin (1709-1755). In der Geschichte der wissenschaftlichen Erschließung Sibiriens steht Gmelin zwischen Messerschmidt und Pallas (Henze 2, S.356). Mit 22 Jahren erhielt er 1731 den Professorentitel für Chemie und Naturgeschichte an der 1724 gegründeten Russischen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Sankt Petersburg. 1732 wurde er von der Zarin Anna Iwanowna zur Teilnahme an der "Großen Nordischen Expedition" ausgewählt. 1733 begab sich Gmelin mit Müller und dem französischen Astronomen Louis De lIsle auf die Expedition. Gmelins Reiseroute führte über die Stationen Jaroslawl, Kasan, Tobolsk, Semipalatinsk, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Tomsk, Jenisseisk und Irkutsk bis Jakutsk. Ein Brand im Winter 1736/37 zerstörte einen Großteil der Aufzeichnungen und Sammlungen. Später kehrte Gmelin über Irkutsk, Tomsk, Werchoturje sowie Weliki Ustjug und Schlüsselburg nach St. Petersburg zurück. Mit der zehnjährigen Expedition legte er die Grundlage für das vierbändige Werk "Flora sibirica sive Historia plantarum sibiriae" (1747-1749). - 010

Portrait frontis to both vols, with minor dampstaining to frontis of vol. II. The portraits are later additions: vol. I is of 'the late' Charles Wesley, and vol. II is of John Pawson, 'Aged 58 / Preacher of the Gospel', the image taken from the Arminian Magazine. Both portraits look 18th-century and fit perfectly in style and paper quality with the books (Charles Wesley died in 1788; John Pawson, itinerant preacher, was 58 in 1795). Decorative headpieces and tailpieces. A couple of tiny pencil marks to margins of vol. I. Very minor foxing to early and late pages, with a few scattered instances throughout. Size: 10.5 x 18cm. Index of first lines, contents, and errata to end of vol. I, contents leaf and errata leaf to end of vol. II. Vol. I is second edition, published 1755 by E. Farley; vol. II is first edition, published 1749 by Felix Farley. (The first edition of vol.I appeared in 1749). The Farley family were well-known Bristol printers and publishers, first established in 1698. Elizabeth Farley took over the business after the death of her husband Felix Farley in 1753, running it until her death in 1779. The only substantial difference to the second edition appears to be the addition of an index of first lines and a revised errata section. Charles Wesley (1707- … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hieronymite Monks
Diocese of Burgos [Spain], 1749. Two manuscripts on one vellum leaf, dated 8 days apart, each being an illustrated manuscript vow of monastic service to the Order of Hieronymites, after the one-year probation had been completed, each elevating the writers from novice to a full Augustine monk, both of whom are pledging service to the Diocese of Burgensis [Burgos]. Both declarations are signed in the original by the new monk, and also by two superiors who are named in the vows. To one side, the declaration is by Josephus Manceto, dated 15 December 1749, beautifully illustrated with the drawing of a monk, presumably depicting himself. The second declaration to verso, made on 23 December 1749 is by another member of the Order, Joannes a Galbon. All text is in Latin. Item measures approximately 24,5 x 34 cm. Slightly age-toned, otherwise in very good condition, a beautifully preserved document, of which seldom survive. Skillfully illustrated in manuscript, a monk in cloak is serenely poised and waving a banner which bears the standard blessing, at the top of the vows which are penned in a neat circle bearing the Maltese Cross as its own symbolic header. Dramatic leafs, blooming flowers, and two birds resembling larks which are the symbol of the humility of the priesthood, complete the most satisfying image of a perfect life. The other side of the vellum leaf is equally impressive and intriguing for its artwork. Here we find long Roman spears entangled in the prayerful banner heading, a most imposing and frame around the text, drawn with precision. Symbolic animals include again … [Click Below for Full Description]
