Ich muß es gestehen, die Menge dererjenigen Personen, deren Nutzbarkeit und Glückseligkeit ich hier erweisen will, setzte mich anfangs in einige Furcht.

        [UTOPIA AND IMAGINARY VOYAGES] Decouverte De L'Isle Frivole (caption title)

      S.l., n.d. (ca. 1750). First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 4to. A-C4, D2. 28 pp. COMPLETE. Modern blue-cloth backed marbled boards, title in gilt on red morocco label on front cover, marginal repair to top edge of last leaf (no text affected), light stains, very large margins. First edition of this important pre-Romantic Utopia inspired by Anson's voyage, "the first of what would become a long tradition of supplements to ship's journals that rose around mid-century." (SOURCE: Imaginary Voyages, no. 49). This is the first edition, and was issued anonymously without a title-page; the work's popularity merited a second, revised edition, which then led to a spate of Utopian-themed publications on the Anson expeditions, including the ambiguously named "Supplement to Lord Anson's Voyage Round the World. Containing a Discovery and Description of the Island of Frivola" (the implied official status being entirely apocryphal). Coyer (1707-1782) was a French man of letters and lapsed Jesuit (he resigned in 1736). His many works include a history of the Polish king Jan Sobieski, travel accounts of Holland and Italy, a study of ancient religions, belles-lettres, and a popular attack on the guild system, Chinki. He became a member of the Royal Academy of England and the Academy of Nancy. It is said that when he visited Voltaire at Ferney and announced his desire to return each year for three months, Voltaire replied that whereas Don Quixote had mistaken inns for castles, Coyer was mistaking castles for inns" (SOURCE: "Commerce, Culture, and Liberty: Readings on Capitalism before Adam Smith," ed. Henry C. Clarke). Hartig & Soboul, "Pour une histoire de l'utopie en France, au XVIIIe siècle" p. 52. Negley, "Quest for Utopia An Anthology of Imaginary Societies" 234. Provenance: Boudewijn Büch / Bibliotheca Didina et Pinguina (his sale 11/23/2004, lot 780). This first edition is very scarce: combined searches in Worldcat and KVK locate only 3 copies worldwide, none in the U.S. (KB, Copenhagen, BSB Munich and BnF Paris). Amazingly, ours is the ONLY copy that appears in Rare Book Hub (which lists more than 5.7M rare book transactions from the 19th century to the present).

        The Spirit of Laws

      London: for J. Nourse, and P. Vaillant,, 1750. Translated from the French … With Corrections and Additions communicated by the Author. 2 volumes, octavo (205 × 125 mm). Contemporary diced Russia, flat spines decorated and lettered in gilt. With the Belper bookplate. Joints and spine ends skilfully restored. Some light spotting throughout; a very good copy. First English edition. One of the central texts in the history of 18th-century thought, L'Esprit des Loix was a huge influence both on English law, especially as mediated by William Blackstone, and on those who framed the American Constitution. Blackstone's Commentaries, Hamilton's Federalist Papers and Tocqueville's Democracy in America are all thoroughly imbued with Montesquieu's theories. In particular, Montesquieu is credited with the idea that the powers of government should be separated and balanced in order to guarantee the freedom of the individual, a key concept in the creation of the US Constitution. No English language edition was published in America until 1802. The translation is by the prolific Irish-born author and skilful translator of works mostly from the French Thomas Nugent (c.1700?-1772).

        A View of Florence on the side of the Arno and of Trinity Bridge Taken from the Palace of Signior Capponi

      London.: R. Sayer.. 1750.. Copperplate engraving, handcolored, plate mark 11 3/4 x 17 1/4 inches on sheet 14 1/4 x 21 1/2 inches. Faint toning to paper edge (not affecting image), very good condition. Giuseppe Zocchi (Joseph Zocchi) (1711 or 1717 - 1767) was an Italian painter and printmaker, known for his impressive views of Florence, Italy. A collection of engravings of the views was published in 1744 under the title Scelta di XXIV vedute delle principali contrade, piazze, chiese, e palazzi della citta di Firenze, with subsequent later editions. This 1750 British copperplate engraving after a Zocchi view has rather crude but likely contemporaneous hand coloring, the skies being embellished with a strong gouache blue. The publication line beneath the title reads: London Printed for R. Sayers Map & Printseller opposite Fetter Lane Fleet Street. ?- And J. Boydell Engraver at the Unicorn the Corner of Queen Street Cheapside. .

        Plaidoyer de Mr. Freydier avocat a Nismes, contre l'introduction de Cadenas, ou Ceintures de chastete

      Montpellier: Augustin-Françous Rochard, 1750. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo (185 × 110 mm), pp. xxxvii, [1] (blank). Woodcut fleuron to title. Title lightly spotted. Preserved in 19th-century boards, green morocco spine label rubbed. First Edition of this highly curious work, containing legal arguments of an actual 18th-century trial concerning the forced use of chastity belts; it remains one of the most bizarre trials of sexual jealousy. Even in the 19th-century this first edition of 1750 was quite unobtainable. The importance of this work, and the rarity of the first edition of it, merited a reprint by Jules Gay, the great bibliographer of pornography and human sexuality, in 1863. Gay's edition contained a preface (unsigned, but by the great French bibliographer Gustave Brunet) in which is claimed: "There exists few trials as bizarre as this one, and we believe that the case involving Master Freydier remains unparalleled in the annals of legal literature." THE CASE AGAINST PIERRE BERLHE (age 36) was brought by Freydier, a lawyer at Nimes, on behalf of 18-year old Marie Lajon. Berlhe had raped and kidnapped the young woman, subsequently imprisoning her and forcing her to wear a chastity belt while he was away on his travels. After Miss Lajon, escaped she lodged a complaint with the civic authorities in Nimes, and retained the counsel of Nimes attorney Freydier (his first name is not recorded). The lawyer here describes in considerable detail the chastity belt in question, while embellishing his legal argument with obscure references to Genesis, Plato, Saint Jerome, Saint Isidore, and others. The outcome of the trial is unknown, but Freydier clearly used it as a platform for what has been called an ?"érudition déplacée?" (Gay). Gay and others cite this 1750 Montpellier edition as the first. The BnF catalogue records a unique, undated folio edition from Toulouse which was not known to Gay or Brunet. Gay notes that copies of our edition are known with 3 added plates, but it was issued as text alone, as here. OCLC does not locate any copies with added plates. Gay, Amour, III, 753-4. This work remained unknown to David Murray "Lawyers' Merriments.

        The Moral and Political Works

      London: Printed in the Year, 1750. Never before collected together. To which is prefixed, the author's life, Extracted from That said to be written by Himself, as also from The Supplement to the said Life by Dr. Blackbourne; and farther illustrated by the Editor, with Historical and Critical Remarks on his Writings and Opinions. Folio (345 × 226 mm). Early 19th-century polished calf, spine gilt in compartments, black morocco label, spine dated at foot, sides with thick-and-thin gilt rule border, marbled endpapers and edges. Engraved portrait, engraved Leviathan frontispiece. Provenance: G. Harding of Middle Temple and W. Vaughan of the Royal Medical Society, ownership signatures on engraved title (the first crossed through, with another dated 1836) and occasional ink marginalia; indistinct Arabic ownership stamp on both titles; Captain Willim (John Gurens Willim, 1778??-1864, retired captain in the army of the East India Company, and disliked stepfather of George Eliot's common-law husband, George Henry Lewes), bookplate. Rubbed, joints cracking, occasional light browning, some ink marginalia cropped, still a good copy. First complete collected edition of Hobbes's English works. The editor shows himself to be entirely comfortable in Hobbes's world of thought but is anonymous and has eluded all attempts at identification. It was not superseded until the eleven volumes of William Molesworth's edition (1839?-45).

        Manuscrit intitulé Maladies des enfans par Mr. Astruc médecin consultant du Roy.

      S.l., (vers 1750), in 12, de 184pp. d'une belle écriture manuscrite avec une table in fine, pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné, bel exemplaire. Très intéressant manuscrit inédit du cours de pédiatrie du médecin Jean Astruc (1684-1766), professeur au Collège Royal, doyen de la faculté de médecine de Paris et médecin de Louis XV. Ce manuscrit, non daté (mais vers 1750), est signé R. Poyneau (?). C'est un exposé clair, Astruc traitant successivement, pour chaque affection, des symptômes, des causes, du diagnostic, du pronostic, du traitement. Des chapitres sont consacrés aux soins à apporter au nouveau-né, au sevrage, aux croutes de lait, à la teigne, à la maladie pédiculaire, au feu volage, à la suppuration, aux maladies de la bouche, à la dentition, à l'hydrocéphalie, à la coqueluche, aux hernies, aux écrouelles, au rachitis, etc. le tout avec une table des matières. Astruc n'a jamais publié ce cours magistral. Il existe une traduction anglaise d'un cours d'Astruc, intitulée A general and compleat treatise on all the diseases incident to children, publiée à Londres en 1746 ; mais ce traité ("issued from student's lecture notes") n'a pas été autorisé par Astruc (édition pirate) et la fidélité de la traduction n'a semble-t-il jamais été vérifiée. ¶ La bibliographie établie par P. Huard et M.J. Imbault-Huart note l'existence de trois manuscrits conservés en France sur les maladies des enfants (à Amiens, à Lille "daté de 1744" et à Troyes). Janet Doe, dans sa bibliographie de Jean Astruc n'a retrouvé sur le continent nord-américain aucun manuscrit sur les maladies des enfants. Quant à la provenance : il pourrait éventuellement s'agir de René Poyneau, chirurgien à Sanxay (Vienne) au XVIIIe siècle, mais en fait plus certainement de la Sage-femme du même nom Mme Poyneau, une des premières reçue devant le Collège de chirurgie et dont le nom figure dans l'Etat de la médecine pour 1777, avec pour date de réception 1749 et comme adresse "rue de l'Observance". Ainsi elle aurait suivi le cours d'Astruc juste avant 1749, ce qui correspond bien à la date du manuscrit. Rappelons que sous l'influence d'Angélique du Coudray (premier professeur pour les sages-femmes) et de François Mauriceau, à partir des années 1750 l'État ordonne que les sages-femmes aient une formation théorique et pratique de 2 ans avec une maîtresse sage-femme, un jury de deux maîtres chirurgiens validant leurs connaissances. ¶ cf. Huard P. Biographies médicales et scient., pp. 7-30 : « Astruc était un professeur né, extrêmement méthodique et didactique [...] ; il apportait le plus grand soin à la rédaction de ses leçons, très appréciées des étudiants. » - Doe J. Jean Astruc (1684-1766) : a biographical and bibliographical study, Journ. Hist. Med., 1960, 15, p.184
