SMITH, ADAM
1751. Two letters. 4to. 7 pages total. Excellent condition. In this outstanding pair of letters Adam Smith writes about the economics of bills of exchange, the inculcation of financial and moral responsibility, and other matters relating to money. Smith discusses at length financial matters relating to the education of his student and charge, the son of the Earl of Shelburne. Adam Smith was named Professor of Logic and the University of Glasgow, in 1751, and the following year he became Professor of Moral Philosophy. He remained there until 1764. During this fruitful period, Smith wrote his first book, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, published in 1759, the year he wrote these letters to Lord Shelburne. It was customary at this time for professors to take students into their houses. Smith’s most noteworthy charge was Thomas Petty-Fitzmaurice, younger son of the 1st Earl of Shelburne. “As the balance of exchange is almost always against Glasgow & in favour of London, all London bills commonly sell above Par, & this day I received ½ per cent advanced price for the two draughts” “that your son should be held to Oeconomy not that he might hoard, but that he might be able to give” RARITY Only 193 Adam Smith letters are known, all but a handful in institutions. Smith confessed to his friend David Hume “I am as Lazy a Correspondent as you,” but Hume’s letters outnumber Smith’s by a factor of three or more. In contrast, 1600 Samuel Johnson letters survive, more than 10,000 George Washington letters are known, and Voltaire wrote more than 20,000 letters. Of the 193 extant Adam Smith … [Click Below for Full Description]

SALLUST, C.C.; [ROSE, William (translator)]
Printed for R. Griffith in Paul's Church-Yard, 1751. First edition. 8vo. Contemporary full calf, ruled in gilt, maroon leather title label on the spine, lettered in gilt. Three pages of adverts at the rear. All edges red. A very good copy indeed, some wear to the head of the spine. Bookplate of Louisa Catherine, Marchioness of Sligo [1767 - 1817] to the front pastedown. Uncommon. Marbled endpapers. Sallust, [86 - c35 BC] was a Roman historian and politician, whose contemporary histories are amongst only a few to survive from the period, of which Catiline's War (the attempt in 63 BC by Catiline to overthrow the Roman Republic) and The Jugurthine War (Rome's war against the Numidians from 111 to 105 BC) are the most complete. Sallust's narrative style detailed party rivalries, political characters and corruption, and his partisanship of the Roman Republic struck a resonance with the English Classical republicans of the 17th century and translations of his work continued well into the 18th century. Sallust has been translated many times into English - "The versions most deserving notice . [include that]. of Rose (1751)", which is a " close and faithful" translation [Watson]. Described in a contemporary review as "A very faithful, accurate and excellent version . the first of these editions is very neatly printed." A 1795 review of various translations praised "the close and accurate version .(Mr Rose's), in which the concise style of the original is so happily copied." [Analyt. Rev. July 1795] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

CLELAND, John.
101, [1 blank]; 116 pp.Extremely rare pirated edition of the Memoirs of a woman of pleasure, or Fanny Hill, probably printed in Switzerland. The first, "very much abridged" (Ashbee) French translation of the book was published anonymously in 1751 and is commonly attributed to the erotic novelist Jean-Louis Fougeret de Montbron (1706-1760). An expanded edition appeared in 1770 and the title-page called it a "nouvelle traduction" (new translation). Six editions of the 1751 text appeared in 1776. Four of these bear the original title, but the richly illustrated edition published by Cazin in Paris, "the most desirable of all the French editions", falsely claims to be the "nouvelle traduction". The current copy is probably a pirated edition following the Cazin edition, since it also falsely claims to be a "nouvelle traduction". Although the title-page states that the book was published in London, the watermarks in the paper (which contain the Bern coat of arms) suggest that the paper was produced in or near Bern, making a Swiss printer and publisher much more likely.With unidentified collector's stamp on half title and first part-. The frontispiece is partly coloured and it and two other plates have parts of the genitals highlighted in red, plate 4 reattached and it and plate 3 with paper from the facing page stuck to their gutter margins, and an occasional small tear, otherwise in very good condition. Marbled sides rubbed.l Ashbee, Catena librorum tacendorum, pp. 74-75; ESTC T139059 (1 copy); Gay II, 304; Rose 919.

BROOKSHAW, George.
XII, 4; [4], [4] pp. + plates with accompanying text leavesQuarto edition of a collection of 60 attractive coloured plates illustrating different varieties of fruits, by the former cabinet-maker George Brookshaw (1751-1823), "one of the most eminent English artists of the early nineteenth century" (Dunthorne). It is meant to promote the cultivation of fruit trees in Great Britain (so they wouldn't have to import so much from France) and to inform the public about quality, varieties, and "above all ... to excite gentlemen ... so that .. they may ... be able to direct and superintend their own gardeners ..., instead of being, as they too generally are, the sport of their ignorant pretension" (preface). The plates shows the fruits, twigs, leaves and an occasional flower, of 164 varieties of apples, apricots, pears, plums, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, currants, figs, gooseberries, grapes, melons, nectarines, nuts and peaches. Also of interest is the table at the end, specifying the gardens from which the most curious and rare specimens were obtained.Some occasional minor spots and thumbing and faint browning (in particular to the title-page of volume one), nonetheless still in very good condition and wholly untrimmed. Binding rubbed along the extremities and sides, but still good.l Bradley III, p. 78; Dunthorne 51 and p. 55; GFB, p. 81; Nissen, BBI 244; Oak Spring Pomona 40b.

Spenser, Edmund; Birch, Thomas; Kent, William (illustrator)
J. Brindley and S. Wright, London, 1751. First complete illustrated edition of Edmund Spenser's Faerie Queene, originally published in 1590 (Books 1-3) and 1596 (Books 4-6), printed here with Spenser's fragmentary Mutabilitie Cantos, posthumously published in 1609. Inspired by Virgil's achievement in the Aeneid, Spenser set out to glorify the English nation by writing an epic in a new poetic form: a dazzling synthesis of classical mythology, Arthurian legend, Christian morality, and Elizabethan politics. Dense with allusions, The Faerie Queene also works as a straightforward tale of adventure: "His Lady, sad to see his sore constraint, / Cride out, Now, now, Sir knight, shew what ye bee; / Add faith unto your force, and be not faint; / Strangle her, else she sure will strangle thee." The preliminaries in this edition include Spenser's letter to Walter Raleigh; a series of commendatory and dedicatory verses; a collation of the first and second editions; a glossary; Thomas Birch's Life of Mr. Edmund Spenser; and an errata leaf. The 32 engravings are the work of prolific artist and designer William Kent (1686-1748), Principal Painter in Ordinary to King George II, best remembered for pioneering the "natural" English style of garden architecture. Kent's fascination with landscape effects is evident in these double-page panoramas. ESTC T35152. A very handsome edition of a landmark in English literature. Three quarto volumes, measuring 11 x 9 inches: [7], iv-lxiii, [1], ii-xxxvii, [3], 453, [1]; [2], 450; [2], 440.

Scattered spotting. Title-page vignette engraving. Tail-piece. Tartarotti was an Italian abbot known for his works on witchcraft. His 'Three Books on the Nocturnal Congress of the Lamia,' written in 1748, proposed that witchcraft was an organized religion descended from the Romans' cults of Diana and Erodiade. This was a heterodox idea and he was obliged to re-state some points in this volume, published as an apologia in 1751. Text in Italian. . Very Good. Wraps. 1751.

With an engraved vignette on the title-pages, and an engraved alphabet leaf at p.2; a little browned and dusty here and there. Contemporary red morocco very richly gilt, gilt-panelled backstrips with black labels. § A superb copy of a renowned Greek edition of the Bible with a fascinating association. This copy was in the choice Greek library of Sophia Streatfeild; prior to that there is the bookplate of an earlier Streatfeild with their motto "Data Fata Sequutus" (sic), and the modern bookplate of Joseph M. Gleason whose library was at Lone Mountain College in San Francisco until they sold it en bloc to John Howell-Books who dispersed the books far and wide. This book recently turned up in a yard sale in Central California and was bought by a scout purportedly for $5. Sophia Streatfeild was a brilliant classical scholar, a stunningly beautiful woman, and a renowned flirt, whose charms and amorous conquests were recorded at length by Hester Thrale with equal parts admiration and exasperation: "a Young Coquet whose sole Employment in this World seems to have been winning Men's hearts on purpose to fling them away. How She contrives to keep Bishops, & Brewers, & Doctors, & Directors of the East India Company all in her Chains so--& almost all at a Time would amaze a wiser Person than me". Thrale's own husband was one of the many much taken with Streatfeild, as was Samuel Johnson, although he apparently regarded Fanny Burn … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pp. 164-210 + folded map. [entire volume: (8), 202, 536 pp + 23 folded plates. ¶ First edition of Guettard important paper which includes one of the very earliest mineralogical/geological maps of the eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East.Guettard, French naturalist and mineralogist, was born at Étampes, near Paris. In the mit 1740ies, he communicated to the Academy of Sciences in Paris a memoir on the distribution of minerals and rocks, and this was accompanied by a map on which he had recorded his observations. He thus, as remarked by W. D. Conybeare, "first carried into execution the idea, proposed by Martin Lister years before, of geological maps." In the course of his journeys he made a large collection of fossils and figured many of them, but he had no clear ideas about the sequence of strata.The present volume contain many original scientific contributions by scientists such as Du Hamel, Daubenton, Fouchy, Bouguer.

B. de Poilly. Dans ce tems l‡ le fameux Edouard Teach, communÈment appellÈ Barbe noire, infestoit les Mers de l'Amerique. On ne vit guËres d'homme plus sanguinaire.

Often called a translation of an abridgement of Hans Sloane, but quite clearly on comparison of texts a translation of Charles Leslie's New and Exact Account of Jamaica (Edinburgh, 1739), this translation attributed supposedly to Joseph Raulin. Whether Leslie drew on Sloane is unclear, though Leslie appears in fact to have been a Jamaica resident who had met family members of that notorious local figure, Blackbeard.

This copy was in the choice Greek library of Sophia Streatfeild; prior to that there is the bookplate of an earlier Streatfeild with their motto "Data Fata Sequutus" (sic), and the modern bookplate of Joseph M. Gleason whose library was at Lone Mountain College in San Francisco until they sold it en bloc to John Howell-Books who dispersed the books far and wide. This book recently turned up in a yard sale in Central California and was bought by a scout purportedly for $5.Sophia Streatfeild was a brilliant classical scholar, a stunningly beautiful woman, and a renowned flirt, whose charms and amorous conquests were recorded at length by Hester Thrale with equal parts admiration and exasperation: "a Young Coquet whose sole Employment in this World seems to have been winning Men's hearts on purpose to fling them away. How She contrives to keep Bishops, & Brewers, & Doctors, & Directors of the East India Company all in her Chains so--& almost all at a Time would amaze a wiser Person than me".

COLDEN (Cadwallader)
Paris, Durand, Pissot, 1751. In-12, plein vélin souple postérieur, 103, (1) p. Première édition française de cet essai que le savant et homme d'État américain Cadwallader Colden (1688-1776) présentait comme une critique constructive de la théorie newtonienne. L'ouvrage a d'abord été imprimé à Londres sans son consentement sous le titre de "The Principles of Action in Matter, the Gravitation of Bodies, and the Motion of the Planets..." et immédiatement traduit en français par Dominique Castel. Il est illustré de deux tableaux de suites de nombres à pleine page, compris dans la pagination (p. 87 et 93). "La théorie de Colden sur la lumière en tant que matière en mouvement a conduit des chercheurs à lui attribuer le mérite d'avoir développé une conception moderne de l'énergie" (Lokken, p.371). Botaniste, médecin, savant et correspondant de Benjamin Franklin, Colden devint lieutenant-gouverneur (maire) de New York de 1761 à 1775. (Querard, 'France littéraire', II, p. 73) Ex-libris gravé et petit cachet "Sergia Vavilova" (en russe). Petite auréole claire au fond. Très bon exemplaire, très frais.
