        Political discourses. ...... The second edition.

      Edinburgh, printed by R. Fleming, for A. Kincaid and A. Donaldson. 1752. 12mo., (6) + 304pp., contemporary calf, spine gilt with raised bands and original gilt lettered label, a very good copy indeed. First published earlier in 1752, this was Hume's principal collection of essays on political economy, including commerce, luxury, money, interest, balance of trade, taxes, public credit and so on. It is not, in fact, a 'second edition' but a reimpression of the first, revised and then reimposed in the new (smaller) format. [See Chuo]. Oft quoted by booksellers is Hume's rather sad observation that Political Discourses> was 'the only work of mine that was successful on the first publication: it was well received abroad and at home'.

        Deductie gedaan maken en den Hogen Rade in Holland [.] uit den name ende van wegens Bewindhebberen van de Oostindische Compagnie ter Kamer Amsterdam, eerst requiranten van appointctement van anticipatie, en nu gedaagdens by mandament van revisie, ter eenre, op ende jegens aaltje Fransse, weduwe van Cornelis Canter, Jan Canter, en Hendrik van Greuningen, als in huwelijk hebbende Anna Canter, seggende te zyn moeder, broeder, en zwager respective, van Frans Canter, alle wonende te Amsterdam [.].

      [Amsterdam, 1752]. - Folio. 28 (misnumbered: 29) pp., 1 blank f., (2) pp. 19th century marbled wrappers. Amsterdam legal injunction against the mother, father, and brother-in-law (formerly defendants and now counterclaimants) of Frans Canter, manager of the VOC factory at Basrah from 1746 till 1750, who had infamously fled his post when he was to be replaced by Tido Baron Kniphausen. Fearing exposure for having embezzled Company funds, Canter had escaped to nearby Grain (Kuwait): "Sig van Bassoura door de vlugt heeft geretireert naar Green" (p. 4, no. 46). He continued his flight by caravan to Aleppo, then to Iskenderun, and finally by ship to Amsterdam, "where the East India Company was unable to get him prosecuted by the autonomous government of this town. - Canter's flight to Grain is a typical manifestation of a basic characteristic of Kuwait. Its essential function in the life of the Gulf at that time was that it was an area outside the sphere of influence of the Ottoman Government of Basra. In this way, it could serve as a refuge for both persons and trade when, for one reason or another, there was risk of trouble in Basra. This little desert trading town was born and continued to grow because of the simple fact of its being outside the troubled area of Ottoman Iraq" (Slot, The Origins of Kuwait, p. 117). Canter is also memorable for having composed, in the course of his escape, the first known letter written in Kuwait. While the original is lost, a contemporary copy made by an Amsterdam notary during these legal proceedings now rests in the General State Archives of the Netherlands (cf. Slot, p. 117-121). - Slight duststaining to the wide margins. A rare survival. Landwehr, VOC, 1020. OCLC 71711399. Not in Knuttel. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The History of the Island of Minorca.

      London: Printed for C. Davis. MDCCLII [1752]. - First edition, 8vo., half title, pp: [i-viii],ix-xxvii,[i],1-260,1-4, with the 4pp 'The copy of a letter from an Officer at Minorca, to his friend in London' published in 1756 and first appearing in the 2nd edition of that date - here bound in after the 1st edition of 1752, folding frontispiece map of Minorca + 2 plates (one of a Cairn & one of Fossils) both folding and small closed tear to fold of each plate without loss, map with a closed & repaired tear without loss, browning to extremities and nicked to head of title page without loss, with a contemporary previous owner's signature to front free endpaper 'Wm. Mapletoft? 57', bookplate neatly removed from front pastedown, bound in full contemporary calf, gilt, spine with raised bands, red title label lettered 'History of Minorca', front hinge split but firm, areas of leather missing from front board, worn & rubbed, head & tail of spine with loss, however sound, tight & contents very good. John Armstrong (1706-1758), military engineer and author, was born on 2 February 1706 in Ballycumber, King's county. He was cousin to Major-General Armstrong to whom he was indebted for his entrée to, and subsequent progress in the service of, the Board of Ordnance, as well as for his commission in the Royal regiment of Ireland (18th foot). Armstrong reached the rank of engineer-in-ordinary and saw service in England and New York. During the period 1738-42 Armstrong saw service with his regiment at Minorca, where he recorded his observations on the island's history, customs, religion, and people. His book was the first history of Minorca in any language and translations into French (1769) and Spanish (1781) followed. He died in impecunious circustances at the Swan tavern, Chelsea, on 27 March 1758 and was buried on 31 March 1758 at Chelsea Old Church. Signed by "Wm. Mapletoft 57" to the head of the front free endpaper - presumably Wm. Mapletoft from Lincolnshire who was garrisoned on Minorca with the 33rd Foot Regiment 1749-1753, when the regiment returned to England. It is therefore quite possible that the two were acquainted.

        Aedes Walpolianae: or, a description of the collection of pictures at Houghton-Hall in Norfolk, the seat of the Right Honourable Sir Robert Walpole, Earl of Orford

      London: printed [by John Hughs, from the colophon] in the year, , MDCCLII [1752]. Quarter-Bound Calf. Royal 4to: 143,[1]pp, with two copper-engraved portraits by Vertue (of Sir Robert and Lady Walpole) and four folding architectural plates (two floor plans and views of the East and West fronts). Includes "A sermon on painting" (which Horace wrote for the amusement of Sir Robert) and "A journey to Houghton . . . A poem. By the Reverend Mr. Whaley." Continental quarter calf over marbled boards. Unidentified copper-engraved armorial book plate to front paste down. On the front fly leaf, in an elegant hand, an old inscription at top: "Cornelius Grogan. Ex dono Guli: Tench," and below (in Grogan's hand) is copied the Latin inscription from the foundation stone of Houghton Hall. (Grogan was the eldest son of John Grogan of Johnstown Castle, Wexford, a Protestant landlord and member of the Irish parliament. On the outbreak of the Irish rebellion of 1798, Cornelius joined the insurgents, and was later court-martialed and hanged and beheaded on Wexford bridge.) Boards rubbed, very occasional text soiling, else an excellent, wide-margined example, beautifully printed, clean, fresh and bright, in handsome period binding. Hazen, Walpole, 4. Sowerby 4238. Lowndes V, 2818. The Second Edition, with greatly expanded room-by-room descriptions of the painting collection of Sir Robert Walpole, Earl of Orford (England's first prime minister and the author's father), "incorporating numerous corrections and additions in the text and plates." (Hazen) When he finally fell from power in 1742, Walpole transferred his treasures from Downing Street to Houghton Hall, the estate he built in in Norfolk, with rooms of various scales and sizes and contrasting degrees of splendor, to accomomodate the greatest private art collection in Europe. After Horace returned from his Grand Tour in 1737, he began compiling Aedes Walpoliana, which was first published in 1747, and which compared Walpole’s magnificent collection to those of the Continent's princes and noblemen. "[B]y 1736 he [Robert Walpole] owned 421 pictures, of which at least 400 had been acquired by him. His taste mirrored that of the age, and the collection was particularly strong in Dutch, especially Flemish, works, while containing significant numbers of paintings from the French and Italian schools. . . . At Houghton, the old masters were concentrated in the salon and drawing room and included such masterpieces as Van Dyck's 'The Holy Family' and Rembrandt's 'Abraham's Sacrifice.'" (ODNB) In 1779, when the third earl of Orford decided to sell the collection to raise money, Christie (who founded the auction house) handled the greatest country house picture sale of the eighteenth century, in which Walpole's collection was sold privately to Catherine the Great for the then record sum of £40,000." Parenthetically, Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of this edition, one of the books he bought in 1785 from the Rev. Samuel Henley. (Sowerby)

        Arithmetick manuscript

      Overview Details & Condition  An unusually nice 18th-century child's mathematics workbook decorated with calligraphic drawings and elaborately scrolled paraphs. The owner of this manuscript was William Killick (1752-1837) of Shipley, West Sussex, who created it in 1763 and 1764, when he was 11 years old. It contains rules, charts, and solved problems in addition, subtraction, elementary monetary calculation, multiplication, division, reduction (converting quantities), weights and measures (including troy weights, wool weights, apothecaries' weights, square mileage, time, and beer, wine, and cloth measures), and a basic level of algebra comprising: "The Golden Rule or Rule of Three Direct", "The Single Rule of Three", and "The Double Rule of Three". The word problems are of particular interest, as they set the manuscript firmly within its time and place. One begins "A medalist lays out 6" 8' on curious coins...", and another asks the student to imagine a merchant ship that was loaded with gold lace, rich silks, logwood, and "sundry other goods", but "tempestious weather arising was obliged to cast overboard" part of the cargo. One even tells us about the owner: "William Killick being 11 years old in the date 1763. In what year of our Lord was he born in?"Based on the contents and what we know of Killick's life, it is reasonable to assume that he was middle class, perhaps the son of a tradesman or shopkeeper, and was being given a practical, career-focused education. But it seems that, like many children, William was less interested in mathematics than in doodling in his notebook. In addition to his often very large and elaborate calligraphy he has added to the text charming human faces, animals, pen trials, and floral patterns. It's possible, though not certain, that some of the text was written out by a tutor - for instance, some of the the charts, titles, and word problems, which are in a more controlled hand. A good example is a sophisticated calligraphic title, "Addition of Money", which incorporates a face and a bird, and seems to have inspired Killick's own more clumsy attempts at similar designs later in the text. (Speaking of clumsy, there also seems to have been an accident with the red ink bottle, as the cover and a few leaves have been splashed.)Given the manuscript's intended purpose it is in remarkably nice condition in the contemporary vellum binding, and offers a superb look at how mathematics was taught to middle class boys during the 18th century. Shipley, West Sussex, 1763-64. 200 x 160 mm. 180 page notebook containing 156 pages of manuscript and 24 blank pages. Contemporary stiff vellum binding, the upper board labelled by hand in ink "William Killick's Arithmetick, 1763" in an elaborate script, and the first leaf with the manuscript title, "William Killick, His Book 1764". Binding a little rubbed and discoloured with some small worn spots, small knocked area at the head of the spine, contents lightly toned, particularly at the edges, a few light red ink splashes to the upper board, front pastedown, and tail margin of the first few leaves, evidencing slightly clumsy handling of the ink-bottle at some stage. Very good, unsophisticated condition.

        The Adventurer

      London: J. Payne, 1752-, 1754. Most of the imprints at the end of each number trimmed away or cropped (as often: the imprints appear very low on the page), but with decent margins throughout, signature clipped from upper corners of flyleaves; extremities rubbed, joints partly cracked but sound, generally in excellent, crisp condition.. 140 original numbers bound into two volumes, small folio; library bookplates with release stamps, small stamps on title-pages; in contemporary tree calf, spines gilt in compartments between raised bands with ornate double labels;. Cook's editor's influential literary periodical: the first edition, in an elegant contemporary binding. It was because of the prolific literary skills and the versatile pen exhibited in works like The Adventurer that Hawkesworth was appointed to compile the official account of the voyages, based on the journals kept by Captain James Cook and others, selling the copyright to Strahan and Cadell for the then immense sum of £6000.This is a rare complete set, in excellent condition, of this creation which was intended as a successor to Johnson's Rambler, for which he had been a major contributor; although here Hawkesworth was not only the editor and major contributor, but also the creator. He was assisted in his effort by Joseph Warton and Richard Bathurst, as well as by Dr Johnson himself, who contributed twenty-nine essays, most of which are signed "T.". Other contributors included Bonnell Thornton, Warton, Hester Mulso, George Coleman, and possibly Elizabeth Carter. It is also particularly interesting as a source of what little biographical information on Hawkesworth exists for, as John L. Abbott has shown, many of the pieces (particularly numbers 12 through 14 on "Opsinous") are strictly autobiographical in substance (John L. Abbott, 'John Hawkesworth,' Eighteenth-Century Studies, Spring 1970, p. 340).In its day, The Adventurer had a considerable success and was for example distinctly more popular than The Rambler, largely because Hawkesworth gave his audience the mixture of topics it wanted: 'an astute editor, Hawkesworth saw the folly of forcing too much criticism on a public among whom the tinsel of a burletta had more admirers than the gold of Shakespeare?' (Graham). The Adventurer is also still seen as a particularly useful text for its critical articles by Johnson as well as by Warton, who contributed twenty-four essays, ten of which 'contain notable criticism'. He reviewed Pope, 'wrote three papers on the Odyssey, two on the Tempest, one on Jewish poetry, one on Paradise Lost, one on the fragments of Menander, and two on King Lear. He thus helped to give The Adventurer a critical volume in excess of either The Spectator or The Rambler?' (Graham).This beautiful set comprises the first printings of the complete run of the 140 numbers of The Adventurer, published twice a week from 7 November 1752 until 9 March 1754. Bound up from the original numbers, it includes the corrected state of numbers 58, 84, and 137.

OUVRAGE ORNE DES FIGURES, PLANS ET CARTES NECESSAIRES. ET QUI CONTIENT UNE HISTOIRE DE YNCAS DU PEROU, ET LES OBSERVATIONS ASTRONOMIQUES & PHYSIQUES, FAITES POR DETERMINER LA FIGURE & LA GRANDEUR DE LA TERRE. 2 VOLUMES. Amsterdam & Liepzig: Arkstee & Merkus, 1752. First edition in French. [22], 554; 316, [6], 309, [3] pp. 4to., original gilt ruled calf, raised bands, gilt leather spine labels (title label detached, laid in for Vol. I). Originally published in Madrid in 1748. Two engraved frontispieces and 54 engraved maps, plans and views (on 53 leaves), most folding, in excellent condition. Marbled edges and endpapers. Joints cracked, leather worn, spines and corners chipped, ink annotation to top board of Volume I. Personal bookplates to pastedowns. Occasional pencil annotations. Plate VX in Vol. I has been hand-colored (volcano and aurora). Plate XXIX in Vol. II is annotated in colored pencil. Some plates are heavily offset; a few have a discreet owner's inkstamp to reverse, not showing through. Needs rebinding. Attached to a French expedition to South America organized by the Academie des Sciences, Ulloa and Juan were "two of the most scientific" officers of the Spanish Navy (Sabin); having discovered together the element platinum by 1744. The purpose of the trip was to measure the degree of longitude in the equatorial region of Peru. The second volume is largely devoted to the Incas and their culture. The work also contains the earliest reference to the "aurora australis." Verplanck Colvin's copy with his pencil notes. Verplanck Colvin (1847-1920) was a lawyer and topographical engineer whose understanding and appreciation for the environment of the Adirondack Mountains led to the creation of New York's Forest Preserve and the Adirondack Park.

        VOYAGE HISTORIQUE DE L'AMERIQUE MERIDIONALE FAIT PAR ORDRE DU ROI D'ESPAGNE

      Amsterdam & Leipzig: Arkste'e & Merkus, 1752. Two volumes. [22],554; [2],316,[6],[6],309,[3]pp., plus fifty-five plates and maps (most folding). Quarto. Contemporary speckled calf, spines gilt, leather labels. Hinges cracked, boards lightly worn and stained. Bookplates on front endpapers. Light scattered foxing and soiling. A good plus copy with nice wide margins. First French edition, after the original Spanish of 1747. Sabin lists the French language edition as published in Amsterdam and Leipzig, with the note: "Some copies of this French translation have the imprint, 'Paris: Charles Antoine Jombert, MDCCLII'; this has given rise to the idea that an edition was printed there, which is not the case; there is merely a change in the title. The translator was M. de Mauvillon." This voyage to Peru was undertaken due to the desire of the French government to send members of the Academy of Sciences to measure a degree of longitude in the equinoctial countries of Peru. To share in the honor the King of Spain sent along his two most scientific-oriented officers, Ulloa and Juan. The text is illustrated with handsome engraved plates and maps of the region and the inhabitants. Much of the second volume is devoted to the Incas and their customs. COX II, p.275. HILL 1740.

Engravings by Frans de Bakker, François Morellon La Cave, Jacob Folkema, Duflos, Title in red and black; engraved title vignettes. Translations by E. de Mauvillon of Ulloa's "Relacion historica del viage a la America Meridional," and of the companion work by Jorge Juan y Santacilia, entitled, "Observations astronomicas y physicas hechas de orden de S. Mag. en los reynos del Per?" (both published at Madrid in 1748); and of Garcilaso de la Vega's "Comentarios reales de los Incas." This copy with the Paris imprint, but Sabin argues it is just a change to the title page of the Arkste's & Merkus edition (Amsterdam et Leipzig) the same year. In 1735 the French Academy of Science requested permission to send an expedition to the equatorial regions of Spanish controlled South America in order for Charles de la Condamine and other French scientists to measure several degrees of meridian at the equator. By comparing their results with those obtained by a similar mission to Lapland, the Academie hoped to settle the controversy between the Newtonians and the Cartesians over whether the earth was flattened or elongated at the poles. Ulloa and Juan y Santacilia, Spain's best scientific officers, were sent along. Despite great difficulties, the expedition's geodetic measurements proved the validity of Newton's hypothesis. Antonio de Ulloa y de la Torre-Girault (1716 -1795) was later the first Spanish governor of Louisiana though he was deposed in 1768 after two years, during a creole revolt and also served as governor of Huancavelica in Peru.

        Notizia de' tempi de' principali fenomeni del cielo

      Florence: Viviani, 1752. FIRST EDITION. A large folding plate depicting a solar eclipse, woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemporary paste-boards. An excellent copy. First edition of Ximenes' astronomical observations according to Cassini's tables to determine the solar ecliptic longitude. This was Ximenes' first published work. His observations were recorded in Florence during the years 1752-1753 and described the solar eclipse of October 26, 1753 in twenty-two different European towns. The solar eclipse of 1753 Oct 26 was a rare hybrid solar eclipse in which the eclipse path starts out as annular; further down the track it changes to total and then back to annular before the path ends. Of interest, it was preceded two weeks earlier by a partial lunar eclipse on October 12, 1753. Ximenes (1716-1786) was an Italian mathematician, engineer, astronomer and geographer. In 1756, he founded the observatory of St. John in Florence (now named after him, the Ximenian Observatory). He is also known for having restored the fifteenth-century gnomon in the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence which he used to conduct his astronomical and physical observations. Rare; OCLC locates 1 copy in America (Oklahoma) and 3 copies in Italy.

Early struck-through signature to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. $1,500. * First edition in English. The sequel to The Principles of Natural Law, his other major work, The Principles of Politic Law develops his thesis that international law is based on natural law and examines the principles of sovereignty with respect to considerations such as foreign rights, the necessity of war, the concept of absolute power, public treaties and economic factors. Burlamaqui, a Swiss jurist and professor of civil and natural law at Geneva, outlined a constitutional system based on principles similar to those of the American founding fathers. "Burlamaqui formulated the principles of popular sovereignty, of delegated power, of a constitution as a fundamental law, of a personal and functional separation of powers into three independent departments.and finally, he provided for an institutional guardian of the fundamental law" (Harvey). Burlamaqui's other great achievement was to put Pufendorf's theories into systematic form. Harvey, Jean Jacques Burlamaqui: A Liberal Tradition in American Constitutionalism 178-179.

        Sheet entitled:] 'An Astronomicall and Chronologicall Clock, shewing all the most usefull parts of an Almanack.' 'Io.S Naylor near Nantwich Cheshire.' [Sheet entitled:] 'An Astronomicall and Chronologicall Clock, shewing all the most usefull parts of an Almanack.' 'Io.S Naylor near Nantwich Cheshire.'

      Joseph Naylor, [c.1752]. - A previously unrecorded state of a rare promotional broadside for an astronomical clock Separately published broadside engraved map. John Naylor was one of an important school of clock-makers based in Nantwich, Cheshire, active from about 1725. By about 1740 he had relocated to London, and seems to have died there in 1752.It seems likely that, in about 1726, he designed a series of engraved metal plates that could be used to make a clock face, such as the example in the British Museum. In parallel, he must have published a second, near identical clock face, to be used as a promotional broadsheet for the clock, or as an instructional guide to the uses of the clock. While virtually identical, the promotional version has engraved hands over the face of the clock, so it could not be used to make up a working clock face, as the owner would have the mechanical, rotating hands and the engraved hands of the print.As he was principally a clockmaker, rather than a mapmaker, it is perhaps no surprise the geography is outdated. In fact, the cartography is largely based on John Carte’s astronomical clock of circa 1700; this would suggest that the engravings were first made in the early part of Naylor’s career, reinforced by the Nantwich address used, but no example of the broadsheet datable to this period has been traced and, until such an example has been found, this first state must be speculative (but likely).The British Museum has the first state of this promotional engraving, with the text at the top commencing “The explanation March the first 1725/6 .”, which was acquired with their example of the clock.The British Museum also has a second state of the complete promotional engraving, with the text at the top revised, with the text commencing “The explanation March the first 1750/1 .”, evidently published to coincide with, and capitalize on, the British change-over from the Julian to Gregorian calendar. The British Library example is of the clock only, lacking the Sun god engraving and text.This example is the third state, with the Christian name in the imprint revised from ‘Jo.n’ to ‘Jos.p’ ( John Naylor’s successor Joseph Naylor), apparently also in 1752, and with the hand of the various dials in the border re-aligned.Joseph Naylor seems not to have been a clock-maker, but seems to have inherited a finished clock. In time-honoured fashion, he planned a lottery to maximise his profit on the inheritance. There is an accompanying booklet to launch the lottery entitled ‘An explanation of an Astronomical Clock .’ and, presumably, he re-engraved the broadsheet at the same time. 629 by 385mm (24.75 by 15.25 inches). Map border: 125 by 126mm; clock: 351 by 355mm; frame: 375 by 382mm; Widest: 629 by 385mm.

        Prospetto del Palazzo Pontificio di Loreto, del nuovo Campanile, e facciata della Basilica Lauretana

      1752 - Bella veduta prospettica del Palazzo Pontificio e della facciata della Basilica lauretana, dopo l'intervento di restauro di Luigi Vanvitelli, promosso da papa Benedetto XIV. Vanvitelli completò il loggiato del Palazzo Apostolico, fatto dal Bramante, e aggiunse alla basilica il monumentale campanile. In alto, la Santa Casa di Nazaret che, secondo la tradizione, gli angeli trasportarono in volo. In basso al centro, le insegne papali di Benedetto XIV. L'incisione fu disapprovata proprio dall'architetto in una lettera del 27 maggio di quell'anno ( cfr. L.VANVITELLI, Le lettere di Luigi Vanvitelli della Biblioteca Palatina di Caserta, a cura di F. STRAZZULLO, 1976). Acquaforte, firmata in lastra in basso a destra "Giuseppe Vasi disegnò e incise". In ottimo stato di conservazione. Large prospective view of the façade of the Basilica della Santa Casa, with the campanile by Luigi Vanvitelli and the Palazzo Apostolico. At top side, a scene depicting angels carrying the Holy House of the Virgin Mary from Nazareth to Loreto According to tradition in 1291 angels carried the house of the Virgin Mary from Nazareth to a location in Dalmatia and three years later to a hill near Recanati in the Marches. Etching, signed at bottom right "Giuseppe Vasi disegnò ed incise." At bottom centre, the coat of pope Benedict XIV". In very good condition.
