        El Rey. Por quanto después de las conquistas de las Indias ha sido siempre uno de los más principales cuidados para su gobierno, y conservación, la formal prohibición del passe de extrangeros a ellas, y de que habiten, y se detengan en aquellos Dominios, como se reconoce de las repetidas providencias, que a ese fin están dadas, para evitar los graves inconvenientes, que de lo contrario pueden seguirle... [caption title]

      [Madrid], 1750. First edition. Self wrappers. A very good copy, old wax stain on first leaf, strong impressions, fold strengthened; trimmed at a slant, inked numeral at top margins, tiny stain to top margin of second leaf, manuscript additions.. [4 pp.]. Rare document [embellished in manuscript] ordering the Viceroys of South America to restrict foreigners and mete out heavy fines to offenders. Earlier in the 18th century, Philip V, repeatedly pointed out to his Viceroys and other countries, such as France, that, according to the laws, foreigners could not settle in any place of the Indies, nor open trade nor exercise it, unless they were naturalized or possessed the express authorization of the king. He also censured the Viceroys, Governors and Audiencias because they tolerated circumvention of the law, and ordered them to take care of all the foreigners illegally immigrated and to force them to return to Europe. In the reign of Ferdinand VI, who again sought economic growth in the colonies, the most stringent provisions against foreigners were renewed, as this document notes at its beginning: "after the Conquests of the Indies it has always been one of the most important cares for its government and its conservation the formal prohibition of the passage of aliens to them. And that they dwell in those domains, only as is recognized by the repeated measures which are given to this end to avoid the serious inconveniences which otherwise may be followed and were very much anticipated by the principles, and forced to repeat this important task incessantly." Reference is then made to earlier edicts. A separate document was sent to the Viceroy of New Spain concerning Veracruz (For a full discussion see Richard Konetzke: "Legislacion sobre inmigracion de extranjeros en america," in "Revista Internacional de Sociología, Volume 3 , 1945, pp. 269-300). This copy is accomplished in manuscript in "Buen Retiro" on 1 Febrero 1750. Signed "Yo El Rey... Por mandado del Rey.... Don Joachim Joseph Vazquez y Morales" representing the king. The verso of second leaf is entirely in manuscript signed with two long additions noting the acceptances and dated "En la Ciudad de la Plata en 23 día del mes de Junio de 1751, el Domingo" at the top, and the bottom. Not in Medina BHA, European Americana, JCB, BN Espana, CCILA, OCLC, nor any library databases. A similar decree dated 6 March 1750 is apparently in Ayala: Cedulario, t. 4, fol. 323, num. 276.

        Kashirakawari Yakusha Shichihenge (Kabuki actors portraits). Four volumes (of ten). About 1830-40s.

      1750 1750 - Four envelope folders (23.6 x 12.8 cm) made of rough paper, each with a printed crest and a name of a Kabuki actor written by hand in Japanese characters. The four actors are: Ichimura Uzaemon XII; Nakamura Utaemon IV; Onoe Kikgorõ IV; and Iwai Shijaku I. On unfolding the envelopes, each contains a multi-coloured wood cut-printed background depicting a Kabuki actor with the name of the Kabuki house written above. The four houses are: Tachibana-ya; Narikoma-ya; Otowa-ya and Yamato-ya. Included are loose pieces of "Katsura tsuke" different hair arrangements or wigs for both women and men. The different wigs symbolize various characters. On each side of the actor small blue labels stating different character names are pasted in. On the rear of the envelopes is written: "Bought at a Kabuki house 1840 by . (name illegible)". We haven't been able to find out how these envelopes were used. Possibly they were published as souvenirs to be bought at the Kabuki house? Seems very rare. Utagwa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861) was one of the last great masters of the Japanese ukiyo-e style of woodblock prints and paintings. He is mainly known for his depictions of the Samurai battles.

        A DISCOURSE CONCERNING UNLIMITED SUBMISSION AND NON-RESISTANCE TO THE HIGHER POWERS: With some Reflections on the Resistance made to King Charles I. And on the Anniversary of his Death: In which the Mysterious Doctrine of that Prince's Saintship...

      Boston: Printed by D. Fowle and by D. Gookin, 1750. [viii] pages, 55 pages of text; complete with half-title page. Unfortunately this copy has been trimmed by a binder, with some loss to catchwords, some text, and the bottom of the title page. The binding is not present, but the pages remain bound together. The half-title and final few pages of text are lightly foxed, browned, and with a few spots of staining. The final two pages of text have a small spot of adhesive making them stick together; this is in part due to a small circle of loss to the text, which has an old repair using archival tape which stuck to the adjacent page through the hole. Old previous owner's name on the half title page. A very uncommom pamphlet. Sabin 47131 "The writer boldly asserts that resistance to tyranny is obedience to God, as well in Church as in State. He speaks strongly and historically against the Saintship and Martyrdom of Charles, with an irreverant glibness of tongue, akin to the feeling which until recently caused the bells of New Haven in Connecticut to ring a merry peel every year on the 30th of Jan., in honor of the regicides buried there (Stevens)." Title continues "...and Martyrdom is Unriddled: The Substance of which was Delivered in a Sermon preached in the West Meeting-House in Boston the Lord's-Day after the 30th of January, 1749/50. Published at the Request of the Hearers." First edition.. First Edition. Disbound. Very good- condition. Octavo (8vo).

        Inventaire des remédes contenus dans la cassette.

      (vers 1750). ____ Manuscrit très lisible. C'est une description de 106 remèdes, rédigée par un médecin. Cet inventaire accompagnait une caisse de bouteilles de médicaments et servait en quelque sorte de mode d'emploi. Pour chaque remède, l'auteur donne son origine, les indications d'emploi, les doses, les manières de l'administrer... On voit qu'il s'agit de l'oeuvre d'un praticien : "je m'en sers avec grand succès...", "je l'ai vu réussir...", "cette teinture [de Muscade] m'a été apportée de l'Inde...", "il ne faut donner ce remède qu'après avoir fait précéder le nombre des saignées qui sont nécessaires...", "je me suis très bien trouvé à l'armée dans des dissentries très opiniatres d'avoir doné un, deux, trois fois par jour quatre grains d'ipecuanha ... de cette manière j'ai guéri..." . A côté de médications classique pour l'époque, on en trouve d'autres plus singulières comme le "sang de bouqetin des Alpes". On trouve à la bibliothèque de l'Arsenal un manuscrit intitulé: "Inventaire des remèdes contenus dans la cassette de Monsieur Sidobre". Il pourrait s'agir du même texte. Antoine Sidobre (1672 -1747), médecin de l'Université Montpellier était médecin du roi par quartier (c'est à dire par trimestre) de 1720 à 1729. Compte-tenu du luxe de sa reliure, on peut penser qu'il était destiné à un personnage important. Les 98 premiers médicaments sont de la même écriture. Deux autres mains de la même époque ont ajouté des médicaments à la suite. Les deux derniers sont "des fébrifuges" et "une médecine ordinaire de mr. de Seniliac", qui semble être donc le destinataire de ce manuscrit. Très bel exemplaire.***** Very well bound manuscript, a companion volume for a crate of bottle of remedies, wrote by a physician, probably Antoine Sidobre, a doctor of Louis XV. In-8. [184 x 110 mm] Collation : (156) pp. Maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs orné, grande dentelle d'encadrement sur les plats, tranches dorées. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        瀟湘八景 [Eight Views of the Xiao and Xiang Rivers]

      No date. (circa1750). Stunning accordion style album of 10 original Japanese paintings and eight poems in calligraphy. This arresting album comprises 18 panels covered in gold paper on which are laid down 10 original paintings and 8 accompanying poems in calligraphy. Eight delicate colour paintings by Kano Terunobu 狩野英信 (1717-1763) on silk, have been laid down onto the gilt backing papers. Opposite each painting is the accompanying waka poem written in beautifully executed calligraphy. The additional two paintings, laid down on the first and last blank panels, show colourful baskets of flowers and were almost certainly added at a later date. These two floral arrangements are the work of Kano Tōju 狩野洞壽 (?-1777). Eight Views of Xiao and Xiang became a very popular subject for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean painting after Song Di (c.1067-c.1080) first painted this theme. Song Di's initial Eight Views of Xiao and Xiang inspired others not only to follow his lead, but also to adapt this idea to other regions in China, Taiwan, Korea and Japan. The atmospheric paintings in this album reflect a time when the Kano School had become less inclined to copy the somewhat more rigid Chinese landscape paintings. In Japan it is less common for the eight views to be painted in an album format such as this.Kano Terunobu was the second son of Kano Morinobu 主信, the 9th head of the Nakabashi Kano School 中橋狩野家, the main and most prestigious branch of Kano School. Terunobu later became the 11th head of the school and enjoyed the highest status as an official painter for the Tokugawa government and was favoured by Shogun Ieharu. He was awarded both the title of Hōgen 法眼in 1746 and in 1762 the highest title for a painter, Hōin 法印. He was also known as Yūsei 祐清 and his studio name was Jotekisai 如適

Die edle Fechtkunst in vollendeter Ausführung. 1750 verfasste Diderot einen in ganz Europa verschickten Prospekt, in dem er Interessenten zur Subskription der Encyclopédie aufrief. 1751 erschienen die beiden ersten Bände der Encyclopédie.... Der buchhändlerische Erfolg des Werkes war enorm, doch die Jesuiten und die Sorbonne diagnostizierten eine unchristliche Tendenz und erwirkten beim königlichen Kronrat ein Verbot. Da aber Madame de Pompadour (die Mätresse von Ludwig XV.), einige Minister, viele einflussreiche Freimaurer und der Chefzensor Malesherbes auf der Seite der Encyclopédisten standen, konnten 1753-1756 trotz des Verbots vier weitere Bände erscheinen.Danach jedoch wuchs der Druck der Gegner. 1758 wurde das Verbot erneuert, 1759 setzte Papst Clemens XIII. das Werk auf den Index. Inzwischen hatte aber die Regierung die Deviseneinnahmen schätzen gelernt, die trotz des Siebenjährigen Krieges (1756-1763) durch den Verkauf der Encyclopédie aus ganz Europa hereinkamen, und man ermutigte Diderot unter der Hand zum Weitermachen. Er brachte die letzten zehn Bände samt fünf Bänden Abbildungen heraus (1765).

        Culte et loix d?une societe d?hommes sans Dieu [Kultus und Gesetze einer menschlichen Gesellschaft ohne Gott].

      Diese atheistische Schrift wird dem französischen Dichter und Philosophen (Pierre-) Sylvain Maréchal (1750-1803) zugeschrieben, der als Spätaufklärer und Vordenker des Anarchismus gilt. Nach dem Studium der Rechtswissenschaften wandte sich Maréchal der Philosophie zu. Unter dem Eindruck der Werke von Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Voltaire, Helvétius und Denis Diderot konzipierte er einen Agrarsozialismus auf der Basis des Kollektiveigentums. Seine Vorstellung von einem Kult der Vernunft und die Kritik an der Religion und dem Absolutismus führten schließlich zur Entlassung aus dem Pariser Collège Mazarin. Zu vier Monaten Gefängnis verurteilt wurde der Advokat, weil er in dem von ihm herausgegebenen ?Almanach des Honnêtes Gens? den säkularen Maréchal-Kalender publizierte, in dem die Namen der christlichen Heiligen durch berühmte Persönlichkeiten der Geschichte ersetzt waren. Nach seiner Festnahme publizierte Maréchal nur noch anonym. Die Französische Revolution unterstützte er aktiv, indem er sich besonders für die Armen einsetzte. Maréchal war an der Verschwörung um Gracchus Babeuf und als Mitverfasser von dessen ?Manifest der Gleichen? beteiligt, entging jedoch der Verfolgung. Als Herausgeber der Zeitung Révolutions de Paris setzte er sich für die Befreiung des Menschen von jeder Form der Sklaverei ein und sah die Religion als Herrschaftsinstrument zur wirtschaftlichen Ausbeutung der Menschen. Maréchal entwarf einen patriarchalischen Anarchismus, der durch einen allgemeinen Streik zu erreichen sei. Der Historiker Max Nettlau schätzte die Schriften Maréchals als ?große Werke, in denen er die Früchte seines Durchforschens der Entwicklung der Geistesfreiheit vorführt?. Es handele sich um ?unkritische Bücher, gewiß, die aber auf manche seltene Spur führen? (Max Nettlau, Der Vorfrühling der Anarchie, Berlin 1925, S. 49). Bis auf die Würdigung der atheistischen Komponenten sind die frühen antiautoritären Ideen von Maréchal nahezu vergessen worden. Dessen ungeachtet dürfte ihm eine größere Bedeutung für die französische Spätaufklärung zuzuschreiben sein. Versiert gebundene Broschüre mit Titelausweis in Goldprägung. Einbandrücken an den Kanten geringfügig berieben. Angesichts des Alters Qualitätszustand. Es handelt sich um eine absolute Rarität, die nur in wenigen Bibliotheken überliefert ist.

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

        An original theory or new hypothesis of the universe, founded upon the laws of nature, and solving by mathematical principles the general phaenomena of the visible creation; and particularly the Via Lactea

      London: printed for the author, and sold by H. Chapelle, 1750. First edition, 4to, pp. viii, [4], 84; title page printed in red and black, 32 engraved plates (2 folding, 8 rather spectacular ones in mezzotint), wood-engraved initials, head- and tailpieces, with the errata- and list of subscribers leaves, without the final blank; recent full speckled calf by Phil Dusel, double gilt-rule on covers, gilt-decorated spine in 7 compartments, red morocco label in 1, gilt edges; quarter tan calf clamshell box. A very nice, large copy measuring 11 3/8" x 9". The list of subscribers consists of a mere 113 names, so the edition was likely a small one and the book is consequently rare. A beautifully illustrated book, and one of considerable importance in the history of science. Wright first explained the Milky Way and the nebulae as external galaxies and provided the basis for the theories on the universe by Kant, Herschel and Laplace. Wright, a teacher of navigation and a land surveyor by profession, "hypothesized a 'divine center' of the universe, corresponding to a gravitational center around which the sun and other stars orbited. He also proposed, as a possible explanation for the visual phenomenon of the Milky Way, a model of the universe in which the orbiting stars formed a flattened ring. This hypothesis caused Immanuel Kant, who did not realize that Wright's 'center' was supernatural, to credit Wright with originating a disk-shaped model of the galaxy" (Norman).

        A survey of the city and suburbs of Bristol survey'd by John Rocque Land Surveyor. Plan de la ville et faubourgs de Bristol levé par Jean Rocque.

      Copper engraved 480 x 700 mm A fine and detailed, separately published, map of the city and suburbs of Bristol. The map was surveyed, drawn and published by John Rocque and is flanked by 10 views of public buildings and local topography: A view of Redcliff Church on the south side with part of church yard - A view of the Great Crain and Slip at the lower end of Princess Street - The elevation of the Exchange of Bristol as it fronts north to the Peristyle... - The elevation of the Exchange of Bristol as it fronts to the General Market ... - Cathedral or the view of the college and rope walk from the opposite south side of the River Avon - A view of Clifton and Brandon Hills from the south side of the River Avon - A view of the High Cross and Cathedral Church from the north side of College Green - The elevation of the Exchange of Bristol as it fronts north to Corn Street - The elevation of the Exchange of Bristol as it fronts south to the Peristyle - A view of St. Vincents Rocks with the Hot Well's from Mr Warrens House. This detailed city plan is a single-sheet reduction of Rocque's 1743 four sheet map of Bristol. It plots the all the major roads, buildings, and landmarks from Redclift (Redcliff) to King's Down (Kingsdown) with the Rivers Avon and Froom (Frome) snaking through the city and littered with sailing and merchant vessels. Brandon Hill occupies the top left corner of the map with relief shown by hachures. The map is plainly titled in English and French and has three measurement scales below, a compass rose to the top left indicates the unusual orientation of north to the top right. John Rocque (1709-1762) was a Hugenot refugee who came to England as a baby in 1709 with his parents, fleeing persecution in France. In addition to his work as surveyor and mapmaker, Rocque was an engraver and map-seller. He was also involved in gardening as a young man, living with his brother Bartholomew, who was a landscape gardener, and producing plans for parterres, perhaps recording pre-existing designs, but few details of this work are known. Rocque produced engraved plans of the gardens at Wrest Park (1735), Claremont (1738), Charles Hamilton's naturalistic landscape garden at Painshill Park, Surrey (1744), Wanstead House (1745) and Wilton House (1746). Rocque is now mainly remembered for his Map of London, published in twenty four sheets in 1746. It was by far the most detailed map of London published up to that time, and remains the most detailed map of eighteenth century London today. Rocque also published another smaller-scale map of London in sixteen sheets at the same time. His success as a cartographer brought him the appointment as cartographer to Frederick

        Works of Rabelais

      1750. RABELAIS, Francois. The Works of Francis Rabelais, M.D. Formerly translated by Sir Thomas Urquart, M.DÂ… Since carefully revised, and compared throughout with M. le du ChatÂ’s edition, by Mr. Ozell. London: John Hart, 1750. Five volumes. 12mo, 19th-century full brown morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $1850.Early edition of the first English translation of Rabelais, the first edition with the set of 28 copperplate engravings (24 folding), very handsomely bound.“Though an English version of Gargantua was licensed in 1592, and was probably then issued, no translation of Rabelais is extant prior to UrquhartÂ’s of 1653Â… In point of style Urquhart was Rabelais incarnate, and in his employment of the verbal resources, whether of science and pseudo-science or slang, he almost surpassed Rabelais himself” (DNB). “This translation has been called ‘one of the most perfect transfusions of an author from one language into another that ever man accomplished” (Pforzheimer 814). Rabelais “is often censured for his lapses into gross indecency and his physiological and medical obscenities. These may be explained partly as the work of an irrepressible jester writing for a coarse, outspoken societyÂ… His work incensed the theologians and was condemned by the parlement. He issued a revised edition of the first two books, attenuating his insulting references to the theologians, but it failed to placate the Sorbonne and both books were again condemnedÂ… Moliere drew on him, Voltaire and Balzac imitated him, but many have censured his obscenity” (Reid, 509-10). Bookplates, early owner signatures.Plates and text clean and fine, with only one tear along fold line to one plate (IV:135). Bindings very handsome. A desirable set of an esteemed translation.

        London Punch-House trade card

      1750. ASHLEY, James. London Punch-House trade card. London: Thomas Worlidge, circa 1750. Card measures 6 by 7-1/2 inches, engraved on recto only. $8500.Rare original 18th-century trade card of James Ashley, credited with creating the drink that would become the modern cocktail at the Punch-House in London in the 18th-century, fully engraved with a portrait of Ashley flanked by the Punch-House's iconic iron punch bowls.Drink historian David Wondrich has called Ashley ""the world's first celebrity mixologist, the first man to become famous for compounding and selling a mixed drink"" (Wondrich, Punch, 171). This original engraved trade card features a portrait of Ashley flanked by the elaborate pedestals topped by iron punch bowls that stood outside the front door of his London Punch-House, with the caption ""James Ashley / Who at the London Punch House on Ludgate Hill 1731 / First Reduced the Price of PUNCH & rais'd its Reputation."" Perhaps just as important as lowering the price was Ashley's innovation of serving smaller, individual servings, made to order for each customer—the precursor of the modern cocktail. Extensively advertised and promoted by Ashley, the London Punch-House enjoyed clientele such as William Hogarth, James Boswell, Oliver Goldsmith and Benjamin Franklin. This trade card is engraved by Ashley's friend Thomas Worlidge (dubbed ""The English Rembrandt""), who also engraved portraits of Ashley's wife and one Mrs. Graywood, the bar-keep at the Punch-House. Only slightest wear and discoloration, impression strong and vivid. Rare.
