Lucotte, [Jacques-Raymond], Diderot & d'Alembert, editors]]
- The section on woodworking in buildings from the Encyclopédie of Diderot and d'Alembert published initially in Paris between 1751 and 1772.This section, folio,260x365mm, is well bound for protection in 20th century brown thin card covers finished on the spine in green hessian or similar cloth; tiny worm hole in the extreme lower left margins of the first three or four leaves and with the usual slight browning around the margins but a very good, complete copy with clear, crisp text on 16 numbered pages and 38 full page copper engraved plates (numbered I - XXIV but several with subnumbered plates in the particular subseries). The Encyclopédie, the magnificent Enlightenment undertaking with the grand aim of publishing all the world's knowledge and intended to "change the way people think", appeared between 1751 and 1772 in 28 folio volumes with over 70,000 articles and more than 3,000 illustrations, later supplemented with additional material and revised elements. It was the first general encyclopedia to include material on technology and on crafts, entirely appropriately as the underlying focus of the work was on human reason rather than on theology or nature and because the editors wished to provide information applicable to people's everyday lives. There is no separate section title page and it's unclear exactly when this part was published but judging by the quality of the engravings it's most likely from the original edition or at least from a very early printing. The text consists of descriptions of the 38 plates written by the architect Jacques-Raymond Lucotte who als … [Click Below for Full Description]

[American Revolution. Declaration Signer] Sherman, Roger
[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.

In the present work, the author sets forth his hypothesis of this vital power with regard to internal secretion: that every organ, tissue, and cell discharges, into the blood, products which influence the function of other parts of the body. In some ways a forerunner of the science of endocrinology, Bordeu's theory was based on speculation rather than rigid scientific investigation. But his theories were rather widely held and had their counterparts in similar "schools" and hypotheses in other European countries."] ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Contemporary full mottled sheep, spine gilt in six compartments, title in gilt on lettering-piece, marbled edges, marbled endpapers. 12mo (163x93 mm), xxiv-520-86-(2) pages Caps and corners worn, spine and joint cracked .

Publish'd According to Act of Parliament May 1st. 1751 - Etching and mezzotint Image 247 x 340 mm, 259 x 350 mmsheet A burlesque version of the biblical scene of St Paul declaiming before the Roman procurator of Judea, Marcus Antonius Felix, originally used as the subscription ticket for Hogarth's heroic scenes of Paul before Felix and Moses Brought to Pharaoh's Daughter. The burlesque itself was probably stimulated, in a Hogarthian display of business acumen and timely satire, by the recent imitations of Rembrandt executed by Benjamin Wilson, and sold successfully as Old Master prints to two of the leading connoisseurs of the age. Thus, Paul Before Felix Burlesqued is replete with imagery 'in the true Dutch taste.' Many of the figures are dressed in Dutch clothing, a wall at the back of the court is decorated with a display of Delftware, and in the distance a harbour scene features Dutch ships, houses, and a windmill. The central figure of Paul, haloed and wearing robes, stretches out his hands during an emphatic address on the nature of righteousness, temperance, and justice. His address is made from a stool (in this state, prior to the addition of a small horned devil that attempts to topple by sawing through one leg). Paul's fat guardian angel slumbers, while an evil-looking dog edges up behind Paul, his collar labelling him as 'Felix.' The actual Felix sits in his curule chair below the Eagle of the Senate and People of Rome. Despite the oak chaplet on his head, and the attendant with fasces to his right, he is dressed in the clothes of a contemporary judge. Paul's arg … [Click Below for Full Description]

GENNES (Pierre de)]
Paris, Imprimerie de Delaguette, 1750-1751, - 2 parties en un fort vol. in-4, 284-220-72-87-15-48-57-19 pp., avec 6 planches hors-texte (4 tableaux dépliants, une carte de Madras, une grande carte volante en couleurs), veau fauve, dos à nerfs cloisonné orné de pièces d'armes, pièce de titre cerise, encadrement de double filet à froid sur les plats, double filet doré sur les coupes, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Plats un peu tachés, mais bon exemplaire. Edition originale, au format in-4 (en même temps sortit un tirage en quatre volumes in-12). Recueil à la pagination chaotique (les pièces justificatives ont chacune leur chiffrage, et pas toujours cohérent), commandité par Pierre-Bertrand Mahé de La Bourdonnais (1699-1753), prisonnier à la Bastille depuis son retour en France en mars 1748, et en attente de son procès, intenté à la suite des manoeuvres malveilllantes de Dupleix. Les pièces comme les cartes du recueil (composées sous la direction de Mahé) forment un précieux ensemble documentaire sur l'Inde française, et les Mascareignes pendant les conflits avec l'Angleterre pendant la Guerre de Succession d'Autriche. Les bibliographies ne signalent que le plan de Madras, mais le planisphère en couleurs est bel et bien intitulé Carte pour l'intelligence du Mémoire de M. de La Bourdonnais, et se rapporte donc directement à notre texte. Corda III, 16. Ryckebusch 4483. Relié à la suite : Observations sur les deux Mémoires à consulter, distribués par la famille du sieur Dupleix.

HOLBERG, LUDVIG:
1751 1751 - Kiøbenhavn: Trykt paa Autors egen Bekostning 1751. Med træskårne vignetter. [12] + 258 s. Let bruneret eksemplar på skrivepapir indbundet i samtidigt helskind med rig rygforgyldning. Ryggen med brugsspor. Navn på friblad. * Denne samling rummer udover en gengivelse af en række klassiske fabler også adskillige småstykker, der snarere kunne betegnes historier end fabler. Bogen har ofte været ret strengt bedømt, således skrev Suhm, som selv havde beskæftiget sig med genren 'Nogle Fabler ere gode, som ere tagne af de Engelske. Men andre indeholde ei andet end Ammestuesnak. I intet Skrift er han sig meere uliig'. Senere tider har dog haft en mere positiv opfattelse af værket, en længere fabel om 'Midernes Art og Egenskab' anses nu for et fremragende arbejde. Bogen udkom allerede samme år i en ny udgave på dansk og i tysk oversættelse.Ehrencron-Müller X, 466. Johansen 31.

VISENTINI, Antonio.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
