        Amelia

      1752. first edition. There's Something About AmeliaFieldings' Favorite BookFIELDING, Henry. Amelia. London: Printed for A. Millar, 1752. First edition, first impression with dropped pagination to p. 22 of volume one, but with second impression correction to p. 191 line four ("at the Folly") of volume three. With the often lacking "Universal-Register-Office" advertisement at end of volume two (M12r). Four twelvemo volumes ( 6 9/16 x 3 7/8 in; 167 x 99 mm). xii, 285, [1, blank]; viii, 262, [1, adv.], [1, blank]; ix, [1, blank], 323, [1, blank]; vii, [1, blank], 296 pp.Contemporary full sheepskin. Gilt rolled edges. Original black morocco spine labels. Sprinkled edges. With the armorial bookplates of Aluredi Baronis De Braye of Leicester. Original owner's small, neat signature to upper corner of title pages. Bound without the terminal blank to volume one (N12). Scuffing to all volumes, some loss to spine heads of three volumes. Loss of sheepskin at upper spine and to upper board to volume three, as well as loss to spine label. A few gatherings a tad insolent. Otherwise a tight, completely untouched, internally clean copy in the original contemporary binding. Rare thus. Housed in a clamshell box."There were two impressions, Strahan printed 5,000 copies of vols. I and III in Dec. 1751, and 3000 copies of the same volumes in Jan. 1752" (Cross).…Perhaps the only book, which being printed off betimes one morning, a new edition was call for before night" (Dr. Johnson)."Printer of vols. II and IV unknown. Vols. I and III differ from vols. II and IV in paper, in fonts used for title-pages and for table of contents, and incidentally in other respects… The two impressions perhaps indistinguishable" (Cross).Amelia, in contrast to Fielding's earlier books, Joseph Andrews and Tom Jones, is concerned with married tenderness and family happiness, the characters of Capt. Booth and his wife, Amelia, bearing comparison in temperament to Fielding and his wife, Charlotte, though the Fieldings' circumstances where no where near as dire: The book is "set in and against a London of almost unrelieved squalor, corruption and violence" (OCEL)."The book sold extremely well, but was attacked by many, led by Richardson and Smollett, and Fielding made alterations to later editions. It was his own favorite among all his books" (OCEL).Rothschild 853. Cross III, pp. 321-22.

        The Practical Fruit-Gardener. Being the newest and best method of raising, planting and pruning all sorts of fruit-trees, agreably to the experience and practice of the most eminent gardeners and nurserymen ... revised and recommended by the Reverend Mr. Lawrence and Mr. Bradley

      London: printed for T. Woodward; and sold by D. Browne, 1752. Octavo. (7 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches). Half title, 2pp. publisher's advertisements. 6 folding engraved plans of fruit or kitchen garden lay-outs. Contemporary speckled calf, covers bordered with a gilt rule and a dog-tooth roll, spine in six compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by double gilt fillets, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, small expert repairs to spine. A re-issue of the second expanded edition of this influential work by "one of the most outstanding authors on practical gardening during the first half of the eighteenth century" (Henrey) This work was first published in 1724, with 3 plates and a total of 368 pages. The second edition of 1731 was expanded to 408 pages and 6 plates. The present example is the 1752 re-issue of the 1731 second edition with a new half-title and title page. The author, Stephen Switzer, Sweetsur or Sweetzer, was born in Hampshire, and was initially a practical gardener who received his training at Brompton Park nursery under London and Wise and subsequently a garden designer who worked on the planning and layout of a number of famous gardens including Castle Howard, Lumley Castle, Nostell Priory, Cirencester Park and the Somerset home of the Earl of Orrery, to whom the present work is dedicated. Switzer was also the author of a number of influential books, besides the present work, covering many aspects of practical gardening, the first of which, The Nobleman, Gentleman, and Gardener's Recreation, appeared in 1715.The present work contains much useful information and is broken down into 47 short chapters each dealing in short practical manner with the subject at hand - occasionally the author's prejudices break through; "for however some Countries excel us in other Fruits, yet we may justly claim the Preheminence in this of Apples ... The French (who would fain be the first in every Thing) will scarce allow us here in England, to have any Fruit that is valuable, but what comes from them: And though there are some good Sorts of Fruit in the Countries over-against us ... yet what are their Fenneletts, Orgarans, Francatuses, Haute-Bonnes, Calvilles, and Abundance more hard Names compared with our Permains, Gillliflowers, Pippins, Reynets, and the like, and the several Sorts of Russetings, concerning the Original of which they would needs contend with us? ... yet such is the natural Arrogance of these People, that when they can once get Possession of any Fruit and put their Cramp names on it, it is immediately their own; and so like a Crow, they strut with Feathers borrowed out of other People's Caps." (pp.136-137). Henrey III, 1415

        Suite de la science des personnes de cour, d'epee et de robe. contenante les elemens de la philosophie moderne, la pneumatique, la metaphysique, la physique experimentale, le systeme du monde, suivant les nouvelles decouvertes, tome premier-second a amsterdam chez z. chatelain et fils 1752

      Due volumi in-16° (cm 16,6x9,9), pp. (22), 1-432; (2), 433-932, legatura coeva in piena pelle con fregi in oro e titoli su tassello al dorso, guardie marmorizzate, tagli spruzzati. All'antiporta di entrambi i volumi una tavola allegorica. Sedici tavole fuori testo più volte ripiegate al primo volume, (tavole I-XVI), tredici tavole fuori testo, anch'esse più volte ripiegate, al secondo (tavole XVII-XXIX): le tavole illustrano, in prevalenza, gli strumenti scientifici utilizzati per i vari esperimenti descritti. Alcuni segni d'uso e del tempo alla legatura: segnaliamo in particolare piccole spellature ai piatti e alcune fenditure alle cerniere dovute appunto all'utilizzo, fenditure che, comunque, non pregiudicano la solidità della legatura. Bruniture e arrossature ai facicoli da A ad L (pp. 1-264) del solo primo volume, dovute al tipo di carta utilizzata. Timbro di bilioteca privata al secondo foglio di guardia di entrambi i volumi. Si tratta della prosecuzione, del tutto autonoma, aggiornata ai risultati delle ultime ricerche, dell'opera enciclopedica Science des personnes de cour, d'épée et de robe, commencée par Mr. De Chevigni, continuée par Mr. De Limiers, revue, corrigée et considerablement augmentee par Mr. Pierre Massuet, Docteur en Médecine, uscita in 7 tomi, divisi in diciotto volumi, nel 1752 presso lo stesso Chatelain. Il primo proprietario dell'esemplare in nostro possesso fece rilegare, con tutta probabilità, i due volumi assieme ai 18 della Science des personnes de cour del 1752: il legatore, anziché considerarli la prosecuzione, l'aggiornamento dell'opera enciclopedica, attribuendo loro gli ultimi due posti nella numerazione complessiva dei volumi, li considerò parte dell'opera stessa: i due volumi infatti riportano, sui tasselli al dorso, l'indicazione "Tom III" e "Tom IV". L'opera si occupa di analizzare, di illustrare, di indagare, in forma dialogica, i vari aspetti connessi alla filosofia, alla metafisica, alla fisica sperimentale, alla matematica, alla geometria, all'idraulica, all'ottica, alla geologia (caratteristiche dei vulcani, dei terremoti), all'astronomia, attingendo agli scritti dei maggiori pensatori e scienziati del tempo. Così l'autore sulle fonti da cui ha tratto le informazioni: "Les Sources où j'ai puisé, sont les Ouvrages de ces Grands-hommes qui ont sondé la Nature, et l'ont comme forcée à leur reveler ses secrets. Tout le mérite de la Physique moderne est dù aux travaux de ces excellens Guides, à la force de leur génie, à la sagacite de leur esprit. Par des expériences sans nombre ils ont dévoilé la Nature, et nous ont fait voir un Spectacle d'autant plus surprenant, qu'il étoit nouveau et impévu. Descartes, Newton, Cassini, Huyghens, Perrault, Bernoulli, Keill, 's Gravesande, Boerhave, Musschenbroek, Maupertuis, de Mairan, Wolff, Voltaire, Desaguliers, le Car, les Abbés Pluche et Nollet; voilà les principaux Auteurs que j'ai suivis, et à qu'il peut y avoir de bons dans ces Elémens". Sommario: Preface de l'auteur; Introduction: De la Philosophie en général. Livre premier. De la Pneumatique. Livre second. De la Metaphysique. Livre troisieme. De la Physique experimentale (tra i vari argomenti trattati segnaliamo: De la Physique en général. Des Règles et des Loix de la Nature. Division de la Physique; Son Utilite.

        Lettres sur la Certitude des signes de la Mort, Où l'on rassure les Citoyens de la crainte de être vivans. Avec Des Onservations & des Expériences sur les Noyés... [Avec le dissertation de M. Winslow "An Mortis Incertae Signa munùs incerta à Chirugicis, quam ab aliis experimentis]

      Paris,: Michel Lambert,, 1752.. viii, 376, [viii], [ii blank] pp. Small 8vo (10 x 17 cm.).

With 1 engraved plates. ** First edition. Louis was a pioneer of French medical jurisprudence. This work was written in reply (a rather strong attackt) to J.J. Bruhier d'Ablaincourt's "Dissertation sur l'incertitude des signes de la mort", for which the thesis by Winslow "Sur l'incertitude des epreuves chirurgiques pour constater la mort" was the basis. The thesis of Winslow occupies here pages 300-351 (French and Latin on opposite pages).--(Apart from some minute imperfections to the binding, a very fine and clean copy of this scarce work).

        The Independent Reflector

      New York: printed by James Parker, 30 November 1752 - 22 November 1753. Numbers I-LII (all published) in one volume, folio. (10 3/4 x 6 5/8 inches). Without the later-printed general title and preface. (Lacking pp. 175-178 from number XLIV, old creases, repaired tear to pp.159/160, the outer blank margin of pp.141/142 torn with some loss, inked library stamp on first leaf). Old calf, panelled in blind (lower joint split, front free endpaper lacking). A rare run of a suppressed early American newspaper which argued for the separation of church and state and freedom of religion. William Livingston was both the editor and main contributor to this weekly publication. Livingstone was later elected a member of the New York Legislature, was appointed to the Continental Congress from July 1774 to June 1776, served as the first Governor of the newly independent State of New Jersey and was a signer of the United States Constitution. Here, however, he was the principal author of these articles which largely discuss making what would become Columbia University entirely non- sectarian. "In the Independent Reflector, Livingston vigorously opposed the establishment of an American Episcopate and the incorporation of an Episcopal college in New York. In the Preface---which is so rare as to have nearly escaped notice by the bibliographers [and not present in this copy] ---he gives some account of the means employed to suppress the Reflector. James Parker refused to print it, after the end of the first year, and no other printer in New York dared undertake its publication. When the Preface was printed does not appear. The imprint of the general title [also not present in this copy] is: 'New York (until tyrannously suppressed) in 1753'" (Brinley). Brigham confirms the later printing of the title and preface, which explains its absence in this run: "The last issue was that of Nov. 22 1753, no. 52, after which it was suppressed by the authorities. Livingston then brought out a title-page and a preface." This copy bound from the original weekly issues, each with their original fold lines. Brigham p.653; Evans 6866 and 7042; Sabin 34452; Brinley sale 2894; Cf. Papers of the Bibliographical Society (1950), vol. 44.

        Port de Mer [Pl. 72]

      Paris: Moyreau, 1752. Hand-coloured engraving on laid paper by Moyreau. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and a bit of mild rippling. 14 1/2 x 18 3/4 inches. 18 5/8 x 23 3/4 inches. A fine composition showing a crowd awaiting the arrival of a ship at a Dutch harbour. This beautifully coloured print is one of many engravings Jean Moyreau (1690-1762) made of Wouwerman's paintings. Born into a family of Dutch artists in Haarlem in 1619, the prolific draughtsman and painter Philips Wouwerman was primarily renowned for his lively battle and hunting scenes. After an early elementary introduction to the art of painting by his father, Paulus Joostens, he trained with the landscape painter Jan Wynants (1620-1679) and briefly worked in the Hamburg studio of the history painter Everard Decker (d. 1647) around 1638. Wouwerman later returned to Haarlem, where he joined the Guild of St. Luke, which later elected him to the office of vinder in 1646. His elegantly rendered, distinctive works, which are characterized by their luminous colour and detailed, animated treatment of figures and landscape alike, were extremely popular in the seventeenth century as well as the nineteenth century, during which they were zealously collected. In addition to his hunting scenes, Wouwerman's varied and substantial repertoire of subjects included military and battle scenes, landscapes, travellers, animals and genre subjects. Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs, vol 14, p. 723
