        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

        [Manuscript on paper]. Tractatus. De Contractibus in Specie [inscription inside front cover: "Codex 3e Matutinus" (sic)

      s.n. (France): , 1750 (ca.). s.n. (France), 1750 (ca.). 4to. (225 x 175 mm). [336] pp. = 168 unnumbered ff., all but one bearing densely written cursive handwritten text. 14 quires of 12 sheets, with curious quire numberings: the second leaf bears the signature AM, BM, CM, DM (etc.) through OM. Original "temporary" marbled boards, sewn on 4 double-bands and 2 half-bands, original flyleaves. Highly curious, apparently unpublished legal manuscript of high quality. There can be little doubt that the manuscript was carefully written in a fine cursive hand by an erudite legal scholar in training. Extending more than 300 pages, the manuscript covers legal issues concerning the many forms of contracts, promised gifts, leases, deposits, loans and the profits of usury, purchases, records, exchanges, codicils, legates, etc. At the end are 5 pages of Questions which provide a fascinating record of Law School in France in the mid-18th century. The watermark is quite clear and can be identified as a type of Gaudriault No. 734 (datable to 1750). This manuscript is suitable for research and exhibition, and merits considerable scholarly inquiry.

        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.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED BY ANTOINE LOUIS ROUILLÉ, PRESENTING A LETTER OF INTRODUCTION FOR SWEDISH BOTANIST PETER KALM TO CARL FREDRIK SCHEFFER, SWEDISH DIPLOMAT]

      Versailles, 1750. [1]p. Remargined with archival paper, repairing two small closed tears at right edge. Lower left corner of original letter sheet lacking, small section of upper left corn town away, neither affecting text. Composed in a neat hand. Good plus. An interesting letter relating to the explorations in colonial America conducted by Peter Kalm, Swedish botanist and naturalist, in the mid-18th century. Kalm travelled in the British colonies and French Canada from 1748 to 1751. Streeter calls Kalm's writing on his experiences, first published in Stockholm in three volumes between 1753 and 1761, "One of the most reliable 18th-century accounts of American natural history, social organization, and political situation." The Swede spent most of 1748 and 1749 in the British colonies, before heading north to Québec, then returning to Sweden in February 1751. This letter, written by French diplomat Antoine Louis Rouillé in April 1750 to a Swedish counterpart in Paris, Carl Fredrik Scheffer, encloses a letter of introduction (not present) promising Kalm "toutes les facilités qu'il pourra raisonnablement desirer," intended to resemble another letter sent directly to Canada on his behalf. The letters apparently had their intended effect, as Kalm was much taken with life in Canada and his treatment by the French colonial government: "His diary shows that his impression of Canadians was much higher than his book suggests. In his published account he speaks glowingly of their personal qualities. He praises the politeness and cheerfulness he found at all levels of society and contrasts the industrious women with the colonial Englishwomen 'who have indeed taken the liberty of throwing all the burden of housekeeping upon their husbands.' In his manuscripts he is even more favourable, comparing Canada with the British colonies as heaven compares with earth, white with black. No doubt part of this feeling stemmed from the royal treatment he had received in New France, thanks to the intervention of the Swedish minister to Paris" - DCB. A letter that provides interesting background on the travels of an important writer on colonial America.

        Il carro di Pulcinella o Pulcinella felice

      1750. Acquaforte, 1750 circa, firmata in basso a destra 'Joan. Aug. Ratti Pictor Sanueasis inv. et fec.' Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, una piccola macchia nel bordo bianco inferiore, qualche piega di carta, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa rara incisione del celebre pittore ligure Giovanni Augusto Ratti fa da pendant con un altro foglio che rappresenta Pulcinella infelice che abbandona la casa con la propria famiglia. Il tema di Pulcinella era stato rappresentato da Ratti non solo in queste due incisioni ma anche, in qualità di pittore ceramista, su maiolica. Il savonese Giovanni Agostino Ratti (Savona, 1699 - Genova, 1775) nella sua carriera di pittore ha prodotto numerosi quadri di soggetto sacro e profano che ornano chiese, oratori e palazzi di tutta la Liguria, dove principalmente operò nella sua vita. Fu padre e maestro di Carlo Giuseppe Ratti e frequentò a Roma la scuola di Benedetto Luti. Protagonista della pittura a Savona nel Settecento, il Ratti a metà del secolo rappresenta anche nel più vasto panorama culturale ligure un riferimento di spicco, soprattutto per l'impegno nella costituzione e nell'incremento - anche attraverso gli influssi sul figlio Carlo Giuseppe - dell'Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti. Sono note 22 incisioni, quasi tutte realizzate durante il suo soggiorno romano. Le due incisioni di Pulcinella, però, furono realizzate una volta rientrato in Liguria, dove continuò a lavorare tra Savona e Genova, fino alla sua morte. Etching, 1750 circa, signed on platea t lower right 'Joan. Aug. Ratti Pictor Sanueasis inv. et fec.' Good example, printed on contemporary laid paper, below small spot in the white border, otherwise in good condition. A very rare etching by the famous Italian painter Giovanni Augusto Ratti is a pair with another sheet showing Pulcinella, sad, who leaves the house with his family. The theme of Pulcinella was represented by Ratti not only in these two recordings but also, as a ceramist, on majolica. Giovanni Agostino Ratti, from Savona, came early to Rome, where he studied for several years in the studio of Benedetto Luti. Most of his 22 well-known etchings originated mainly in Rome, but the motifs of the Pulcinella did not arise until after his return to the homeland, where he pursued various orders between Savona and Genoa until his death.
