      London: A. Millar, 1751. First edition. xv, [i], 127, [1] pp. 8vo. Full red morocco, covers tooled in gilt to panel design with three double-fillets and floral roll, spines gilt in six compartments with raised bands, by The Club Bindery (signed in gilt on front turn-in, "THE CLUB BINDERY 1906"). Front joint rubbed, else fine, with fore- and lower edge uncut. First edition. xv, [i], 127, [1] pp. 8vo. First edition of Fielding's most important social tract, written as chief magistrate, "the most remarkable of his social tracts - a work as important for what it reveals about his temperament and character as for the remedies it prescribes for the disorders of the commonwealth" (Battestin, pp. 513-4). Fielding advocates reforms to the penal code that would curb the social ills - drunkenness, gambling, prostitution, theft - that plagued mid-18th century England. The social order can only be maintained by instilling fear in the general population, and punishment should be harsh and swift. Executions, instead of being public spectacles, should arouse fear and terror and should be solemnly conducted in secret. This copy bound by The Club Bindery, founded in 1895 by members of the Grolier Club to provide exceptionally fine binding for American collectors. Robert Hoe, who helped finance the bindery, would have commissioned this binding himself. Cross III, p. 320.

        De Caroli Odoardi Stuardii Walliae principis expeditione in Scotiam libri IV., , (non datato, ma collocabile tra il 1751, anno di compilazione, e il 1753, anno del trasferimento di Guasco da Alessandria a Roma).

      , (non datato, ma collocabile tra il 1751, anno di compilazione, e il 1753, anno del trasferimento di Guasco da Alessandria a Roma) - Mm. 240 x 185, pp. (2) 234 + 2 cc. bianche. Legatura coeva in piena perg. semi-floscia con tit.ms. al dorso; tagli spruzzati. Perfettamente conservato e grafia facilmente leggibile. Giulio Cesare Cordara (1704-1785), gesuita e letterato piemontese, fu autore di numerose e significative opere storiche e letterarie. Grazie all'amicizia con papa Benedetto XIV fu sempre al centro della vita ecclesiastica settecentesca. L'opera De Odoardi Stuardii Principis Walliae expeditio in Scotiam, libris IV comprehensa fu scritta nel 1751 (e quindi pubblicata postuma a Venezia nel 1804) sotto la spinta proprio di Giacomo III ed Edoardo Stuart, in quell'epoca esiliati a Roma. Agli ex-regnanti, suggestionati dalla riconquista del trono perduto, fu proposta una spedizione di rientro in Scozia. Ma Giacomo III, optando per una soluzione all'insegna della prudenza, perferì all'ultimo inviare il figlio Edoardo. La campagna fu inzialmente un successo. Lo sbarco avvenne nel 1745 a Eriskay; Edimburgo e l'intera Scozia furono occupate in breve tempo. Edoardo, nel frattempo nominatosi re di Scozia (Giacomo VIII di Scozia), decise di invadere l'Inghilterra, ma respinto con forza dalle truppe inglesi, fu costretto dapprima a ripiegare in Scozia e in seguito a fuggire in Italia. L'opera di Cordara, scritta in latino elegante e puro, descrive in modo sobrio e particolareggiato la cronaca dell'impresa. Un ulteriore segno d'importanza del manoscritto è la mano, di certa attribuzione, dello stesore. Francesco Eugenio Guasco (1725-1798), importante storico e letterato alessandrino, fu amico di Cordara e suo collaboratore, come in occasione della pubblicazione di un dramma pubblicato nel 1754 a Genova e intitolato La morte di Nice. Per i dettagli bio-bibliografici si rinvia all'ampia e dettagliata voce G. compilata da C. Preti per il Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Working collaboratively, the group imagined the persona of Scriblerus, through whose writings they accomplished their satirical aims. Cambridge's poem, "intended to expose false taste and false science, replete with happy parodies of distinguished passages in the classics, particularly Virgil," is preceded by a dissertation on the mock epic, in which he avows Cervantes as his master.

        ONNA DAI RAKU TAKARA BEKI: GREAT PLEASURE FOR LADIES ON OPENING THEIR TREASURE-B

      - Japan [1751], np. New green silk cloth-covered boards, 113 double-folded leaves, woodblock printed by hand on hand-made paper, first few pages later amateur color, thumbed, else as issued, illustrated on nearly every page, 18 x 25 cm. RARE ! *** *** *** . . . EXCEPTIONALLY RARE & EARLY, STUNNINGLY EROTIC . . . PROFUSELY ILLUSTRATED HARU BON [Erotic Book] . . This is a famous book, inspired by another famous work by the great Kaibara Eikken: "PARODIES OF ONNA DAIGAKU TAKARA BAKO [GREAT LEARNING FOR LADIES OPENING THEIR TREASURE BOX" i.e. opening their locked vaginas to pleasure. 'Precious Box' or 'Treasure Strong-Box' has been synonyms for "Oman ko" [colloquial for 'vagina' or 'pussy'] from time immemorial in Japan. . *** A FAMOUS AND VERY EARLY PROFUSELY ILLUSTRATED EROTIC BOOK: This is an early erotic illustrated book, with color woodblock printing on the frontispiece page, the balance of the work is in Sumi [black India ink & white] entirely hand printed on hand-made Washi paper, contained in a new indigo Chitsu [folding case] with new title labels, two bone clips. The fascinating point of this unusual work is that women of all classes of Japanese society are illustrated and discussed as all have the same basic instincts, erotic nature, erotic zones and erotic pleasures. The work was designed and illustrated to be an erotic training book for women and girls. . *** This book illustrates various classes of Japanese society, farmers life, showing the threshing of and planting of paddy rice by both men and women, most of whom are engaged in love making while performing their tasks. The book then continues into Japanese court life taken from the Tale of Genji, with nobles fully engaged in love-making throughout. This set of illustrations are done in the old Momoyama style, where the viewer is somewhere in the clouds, looking down upon the earthlings as they engaged in their daily life and love. The next section begins the instructional text and illustrations of ONNA DAI RAKU TAKARA BAKO, wherein we see a mother presenting her daughter with a lacquered tray containing two dildos, one white, the other black. Its time for the young lady to learn the pleasures of self stimulation & enjoyment. . *** The next shows a man and his lover sitting at the Kotatsu [table over a Hibachi-like warmer with quilt cover], while the girl looks at an erotic book, the man uses his toes to stimulate her clitoris. Next shows a father teaching his daughter calligraphy, while he makes love to a very ecstatic mother. Followed by a several views of couples fully engaged in love making. One shows lovers exchanging tongue kisses & making love while a maid voyeurs. Then a group of superb illustrations showing couples making love while engaged in daily chores, such as spinning thread, washing Kimono, weaving, embroidery, knotting silk cord, papermaking [this is illustrated in Hillier as #108, see notes below], dyeing thread and others. . *** Next shows a very unusual & highly imaginative illustration of a woman under a horse who penetrates her open vulva with huge penis that has a silk cord tied around it. Others show couples engaged in love-making: tea-leaf pickers, fishermen & fisher women, pleasure boat passengers, Shamisen players, and a host of others enjoying a passionate moment. . *** Following is a fascinating physiognomic illustration in the central part of the book, revealing a graphic display of superior feminine sexual markers. A nude woman is depicted showing her places of superior sexual value and locations of excitement. These are individually marked with a tremendous amount of black dots, with a descriptive paragraph of explanation. Jumping to the last page, it continues in this vein, but with focus strictly on the vulva: the various shapes and types, markers of the labia, clitoris and showing the various "types," that is, those with and without pubic hair and the value and comparisons. This section begins with a group of illustrations of erotic

        [Deed of Sale for Land in New Milford, Connecticut. Signed and Completed in Manuscript. Sealed]

      [New Milford, Conn.], 1751. Chips to edges, mainly at the top with some repairs on the verso, bottom edge with small chip and discoloration where newspaper clipping was removed, paper browned, a few minor splits at the fold, still good, legible, and without loss of text.. 1 sheet. Partially printed document, signed and completed by Sherman, 30 July 1751. Roger Sherman (1721-1793) is the only man to have signed the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and both the Articles of Association and Confederation. This is an early signature, when Sherman was only 30 years old, but was already becoming a force in his community of New Milford, where his position as "Surveyor of Lands for the County of New Haven," to which he was appointed in 1845, brought him some wealth. By 1850, a year earlier than this document, he began publishing his Almanacs and had become active in Town politics. In this deed of sale, David Camp sells land to Amos Northrup. The document is completed in Sherman's hand including his detailed seventeen line description of the land, then signed by him as witness; also signed by Camp, John Hitchcock, the other witness, who was a town official at that time, and Paul Welch, Justice. Recording clerk's notation on verso. This is the earliest signed document by Sherman that we could find offered at auction in at least the last hundred years, the closest being a letter dated 5 October 1752 which sold at Swann's in 2012.

With nineteen text sheets, all the plates from the main volumes are described in great depth. A complete guide to architecture, in particular that contemporary to the Encyclopédie, these plates are also very attractive. The five orders are examined and displayed in detail, with some measured drawing as well. Many examples of 18th-century architecture then follow. Foremost amongst these are the plans by Blondel, also a key encyclopédist, for his Fontaine de la rue de Grenelle, plans for the Colonnade of the Louvre, a project for the Abbaye Royale de Panthemont by François Franque, for the church of the Panthemont, and the Town Hall of Rouen designed by Le Carpentier. Other plans include private houses and further Blondel work, alongside designs for the interiors of new rooms at the Palais Royale. A display of some of the most important building work at the time, this large suite of plates is also of interest as a historical record of buildings and interiors now lost or altered. There are also many plates from the supplement, which again cover a variety of topics. Starting with further plates on the five orders, more measured drawing is included as well. A large section of this supplementary suite is devoted to the Bagne de Brest, where Eugène François Vidocq was famously held. With designs by Raphael and Carac, magnificent plans by Charles De Wailly are also displayed. The penultimate set in this suite contains nine theatre designs, with both interior and exterior views. The suite then closes with a final plate concerning Architecture Navale and tools used in the art. The main article for Architecture by Jaques-François Blondel is included with these plates alongside many other relevant entries. A good introduction to the plates, it is testament to Blondel's understanding and knowledge of architecture. Professor at his own École des arts, Blondel had already written extensively on architecture, with his Traité de la Décoration des Edifices receiving much praise. With numerous creative abilities, as displayed in his work at the Metz Cathedral, he wrote nearly five hundred articles for the Encyclopédie. We see the full scope of his expertise displayed in this article.

        Urbis Venetiarum prospectus celebriores, ex Antonii Canal tabulis.

      Venice 1751 - Second edition. Three parts in 1 vol. Landscape folio ( 53 x 38 cm). One engraved prospectus dated 1742, one engraved double-page portrait, 3 title-pages dated 1752 with engraved vignettes, 38 engraved views of Venice engraved by Visentiini after Canaletto, all captioned in Italian; slight marginal staining on few plates. Overall strong dark impressions, contemporary mottled boards. Most widely known and best of the many engravings after Canalatto's views of Venice. Originally commissioned by Consul Smith and based on paintings by Canaletto. The engravings were first published in 1735 in Urbis Venetiarum Prospectus Celebriores ex Antonii Canal. The first complete edition was issued in 1742 and then re-issued in 1751, 1754 and 1773. It was so successful it was even reprinted in the XIX century. 'Self-styled as painter, architect, and engraver, Visentini enjoyed a long career in Venice where he was connected to the Academia and to the artistic and publishing circle centred around Consul Joseph Smith. Visentini's etchings are distinguished in the confidence and authority of their perspectival projection and etched line. Visentini's buildings seldom sag and never "sink" under their own weight into the water of the canals as they occasionally might in the work of Carlevaris and Mariechi. Canaletto's compositions are quite various and are refreshingly dramatic in the contrast between the large foreground buildings and the smaller ones in the receding perspective. 'These views were crucial to forming the image of Venice in the mind of its visitors.' (Millard) Millard Italian 153; Constable E II (S. 605 ff.); UCBA I, 218; Ornamentstichslg.

        Dissertatio physiologica de irritabilitate quam divinis auspiciis consensu gratiosae facultatis medicae pro obtinendis doctoris medici honoribus defendet ... D. Iulii MCCCLI.

      Gottingae, typis Georg. Ludov. Schulzi, 1751, 4, (8), 74, (2) pp., 2 Holzschnittvignetten, Halbpergamenteinband ersten zwei Blätter etwas fleckig feines Exemplar. Very Rare First Edition!"After three years of medical studies, Haller's pupil Johann Georg Zimmermann (1728-95) started working on his dissertation in 1750, which would make up his fourth and last year in Gottingen. Like quite a few of his fellow students he was a Swiss, from Brugg in the state of Bern. The presence of fellow countrymen was a certain comfort to Haller who was often plagued by homesickness [Heimweh), which in these times was considered to be a typically Swiss malady. Zimmermann was certainly one of the favoured pupils of Haller. After his studies he wrote an extensive biography of his teacher (1755), who procured him the post of a physician in his hometown and, in 1768, that of private physician to the English king in Hanover. He became one of the best known figures in the German countries as a much demanded physician but even more through his popular books on solitude (1756, revised 1784-5), national pride (1758, revised 1768), experience in medicine (1763-4) and for his published conversations with Frederick the Great (1788). These writings were not to Haller's taste and were partly responsible for the growing alienation between the two.As a student, Zimmermann lived in Haller's house. He was very diligent and in the evening drank a lot of tea in order to stay awake as long as possible."1 Haller described him as a pupil of extraordinary promise.'" It must be considered as a sign of special appreciation that Haller placed the problem of muscular action into his hands. The last chapter outlined the knowledge of this controversial topic as it was available to Zimmermann when he set out to explore it himself. Of course, he was especially familiar with Haller's thoughts, which will be treated in more detail in the next chapter but some of which we must mention briefly here. Similar to Frederick Winter, Haller located a pronounced irritability especially in the heart and the intestines, which explained the movement of these organs even after their detachment from the nerves. Nevertheless, and again in accordance with Winter, the nerves to him seemed to play a certain role, as their ligature resulted in a decrease of the activity of the heart. But he rejected both Winter's theory of the dura mater as origin of all movement and Boerhaave's idea of a sensible and motive fibre as the ultimate structural unit of the body. These concepts, in his view, would result in the attribution of the faculties of sensation and movement to all parts of the body. To such generalised notions he had objected already in his early writings and with more precision in the dissertation of his pupil Johann Gottfried Zinn (1727-19) in 1749 which had proven the insensibility and immobility of the dura mater.On 15 September 1750 at 2pm, Zimmermann performed his first experiments on two frogs/- With a pair of pliers he cut off the head of a living frog and put it on the floor. The frog jumped around three or four times. Half an hour later and again after one and a half hours, it reacted to minute irritations of its upper leg with long leaps. Even at 8.30pm it was still jumping and at 10.20pm still moving. The next morning, though, it was stiff and 'the heart could not be irritated in any manner.' In six further, similar experiments, carried out on 26 September and 19-21 October, Zimmermann managed to reactivate a stopped heart through stimulation.From these sporadic trials he concluded that heart and muscles may be set in motion irrespective of their connection with the brain. But, of course, that is what he already knew before. To us, these early experiments mainly reveal Zimmermann's uncertainty as to what to examine and how to proceed. It seems that Haller was not present at these first trials. Since the series of his pupil Foelix from December 1749 to February 1750, Haller had not performed further experiments of his own. Only on 12 November 1750 did he resume his former inquiries and determined the topic of his new interest: 'a dog, regarding irritability'. This notebook entry marks the beginning of Haller's explicit experimental investigation into the subject.And now the quality of the experiments changed. Henceforth, the animals were mostly dogs and cats, the single bodily parts of which were irritated with greater care, both mechanically and chemically and in some cases also by the application of heat or cold." Until 15 April 1751, the day of Zimmermanns last notebook entry, some 200 experiments were carried out, 45 of which were protocoled by the student, 135 by the teacher, and 20 by both of them (see Figure 2.4 and 2.5). The person taking the notes was usually the experimenter himself but very likely the trials were often witnessed by both student and teacher, and sometimes by others, too. From Haller we know that he made the notes immediately after the experiment and in presence of those who had seen it. Whereas Zimmermann completed the greater part of his experimental work after three weeks, in November 1750, Haller carried on with continuous intensity for another year, until November 1751.On 22 July 1751 Haller wrote to his former pupil Georg Thomas von Asch (1729-1807): 'In two weeks Mr Zimmermann will [publicly] defend [his dissertation on] irritability and, indeed, he will cause a sensation.'"Haller was well aware that Zimmermann's dissertation would call for a revision of several traditional assumptions about the movement and sensation of some of the parts of the body. What he did not say in his letter, though, was that already at this stage his own views differed in many respects from those of Zimmermann. His own results he presented some nine months later in his famous speeches at the meetings of the Royal Society in Gottingen.

"ONE OF THE GREAT CLASSIC OF MEDICINE" First Edition, First Issue, without the errata on the verso of the last leaf (F 8), Complete!"Percussion of the abdomen as a means of distinguishing between tympanites and ascites dates back into antiquity, but percussion of the thorax starts with Leopold Auenbrugger whose Inventum Novum ex Percussione Thoracis Humani was published in I76i, the same year as Morgagni's great work on pathological anatomy. Auenbrugger's discovery of percussion was not entirely fortuitous for his father was an innkeeper, and he must have watched men tapping the wine barrels to find out how full or empty they were. He was also a good musician and wrote the libretto of an opera (Antonio Salieri's - The chimney sweep) for which he was ennobled by the Empress in I784, so that evidently he had a good ear for sound.Born at Gratz in I722, he studied medicine in Vienna under Van Swieten, graduating in 1752, and later became physician to the Spanish Hospital in Vienna where for seven years 'amid laborious and tedious exertions' he tested his method of percussion by dissections whenever possible and experimented on cadavers by filling the chest with water. Auenbrugger practised direct or immediate percussion, striking the patient's chest, covered by a shirt, with the finger tips of his gloved hand, first during normal breathing and then in full inspiration. He described the natural percussion sound in different parts of the chest, noting that over the space occupied by the heart the sound loses part of its natural clearness and becomes dull. His observations related mainly to lung disease, but two sections dealt with heart disease, namely section XLVI on dropsy of the pericardium and section XLVIII on aneurysm of the heart. He divided dropsy of the pericardium into serous and purulent varieties, noting a completely deadened percussion sound such as obtained by striking a fleshy limb. He also described the symptoms such as fainting, unequal pulse, swelling of the neck, and a tendency to fall asleep while sitting with the body inclined forwards, later described as the pillow sign by Blechmann. He defined aneurysm of the heart as a condition of overdistension of its cavities when they became unequal to propel their contents forward, and found a fleshy percussion sound over a considerable space in the region of the heart. Auenbrugger's treatise proved to be premature as the anatomical conception of disease based on Morgagni took many years to permeate clinical medicine, so that percussion was virtually ignored by the majority of contemporary physicians, though Haller regarded it favourably and Stoil seems to have practised it in Vienna where others were hostile.The treatise was twice republished in Latin and Roziere de la Chassagne included a French translation in his manual on pulmonary disease (I770), stating that though he had not used the method, it seemed free from danger! The credit of introducing percussion into clinical practice belongs to Corvisart who first learned of it from the works of Stoll whose aphorisms he had translated. He tested percussion in his clinic in Paris, described it in his famous textbook of i8o6, and published a second French translation of Auenbrugger's Inventum Novum in i8o8, together with his commentaries based on twenty years of experience.""Auenbrugger's discovery had to wait half a century before it came into clinical use in Paris where it was soon overshadowed by Laennec's mediate auscultation which made him famous in his short lifetime. Nevertheless, percussion paved the way to physical diagnosis of heart disease, and as far as the heart is concerned Auenbrugger made fewer errors than Laennec. There is no doubt as to the important role of percussion of the heart in the preradiological era when great advances in cardiology were taking place, and I can do no better than to quote G. W. Balfour's Harveian Discourse of I887, in which he stated that nowadays when we can ascertain the dimensions of the heart and the state of its orifices with a precision which is almost perfect, we can scarcely realize the state of chaos into which ignorance of percussion and auscultation would plunge us!"

In 1710, he was became the editor of the Descriptions of the Arts and Trades, a major government project to stimulate manufacturing and industry throughout France. In 1731 his interest migrated to meteorolgy, leading him to invent the Réaumur thermometer scale. Sometimes referred to as "the Pliny of the 18th century," Reaumur greatly enjoyed the systematic study of natural history. He also studied botanical and agricultural matters, and devised processes for preserving birds and eggs. In the work offerred for sale here, Reaumur presents his elaborate system of artificial incubation.; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. .

      Westphalie: Chez Florent-Q., Tue Pet-en-Guele, au Soufflet, MDCCLI [i. e. Paris, Jean-Baptiste Langlois, 1751].. 12mo, 108 pp. With a full-page engraved frontispiece. Later full calf, gilt edges, a very good copy. First (only?) edition of this very rare satire on farting, complete with the frontispiece. Not in Brunet. Records show the BN, and possibly Yale and Harvard with the only copies. Farting became quite the sensation in the late 19th-century in Paris where a highly skilled farter was the star of his own show: Le Petomane was his title and he was said to be able to fart the Marseillaise or extinguish a candle at several yards, reducing his audience to hysterical laughter.
