Troisiéme partie.

      A Amsterdam 1752 - 3 pièces reliées en 1 vol. in-8 de XLV-86 pp. ; 294 pp. ; (2)-72 pp., veau brun, dos lisse orné à la grotesque, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale. Les première et deuxième parties furent rédigées par Claude Yvon et la Suite sous-titrée troisième partie, par Denis Diderot. Le tirage de cette dernière partie à l'adresse d'Amsterdam en 72 pages est plus rare selon Adams que le tirage princeps imprimé la même année à « Berlin » en 108 pages « Cette édition n'a rien de commun avec le tirage berlinois, et le présent exemplaire est sinon unique, du moins le seul qu'il nous ait été donné de rencontrer. Comportant moins de pages, cette édition a tout l'air d'une production hollandaise » (Adams, Bibliographie des oeuvres de Denis Diderot). Recueil relatif à la thèse de l'abbé de Prades Jerusalem Coelesti soutenue le 18 novembre 1751 qui énonçait des doutes sur la divinité de Jésus-Christ, fit scandale et fut censuré par la Faculté de Paris, condamné par l'archevêque de Paris, Christophe de Beaumont, le 28 janvier 1752, puis par les archevêques de Montauban et d'Auxerre. Aussi connu comme collaborateur de l'Encyclopédie - qui fut interdite cette même année, Jean Martin abbé de Prades (1720 -1782) dut s'exiler en Prusse où il devint lecteur de Frédéric II. En 1754, l'abbé de Prades fit rétractation solennelle de sa thèse. Très bon exemplaire. Restauration ancienne en pied ; quelques cernes clairs en marge, petite rousseurs. Collation conforme à Adams, Bibliographie des oeuvres de Denis Diderot, AC1 et AC2 ; Tchemerzine-Scheler, II, 933. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        DER AUSFUHRLICHEN NACHRICHTEN VON DER KONIGLICH-GROSS- BRITANNISCHEN COLONIE SALTZBURGISCHER EMIGRANTEN IN AMERICA. [with:] [SIX ADDITIONAL CONTINUATIONS AND TWO PARTIAL ANTHOLOGIES]

      Halle, 1752. First volume (thick quarto) in contemporary three-quarter speckled vellum and boards, seven volumes in later plain wrappers, and one volume in modern brown cloth. Without the folding plate and two maps sometimes found in the first volume. Good. A virtually complete collection of these vital sources for the early history of Georgia. The 1741 collected edition (after the originals issued separately in parts beginning in 1735) of the first six parts of these important annual accounts of the Salzburger settlements in Georgia, commonly known as "the Salzburger Tracts," here accompanied by six additional continuations and two partial anthologies. These settlements began when a group of German settlers from Salzburg, fleeing religious persecution at home, accepted the invitation of Gen. James Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia, to settle there in 1734. By 1741 some twelve hundred Salzburgers were living in Georgia, and these volumes are both a history and a promotional work for further settlement. Included in the first (and most important) volume is the original relation, AUSFUHRLICHE NACHRICHT, nearly three thousand pages long, followed by the first five continuations. The six later continuations are each bound separately. "This series of NACHRICHTEN is one of the most important source works on the history of Georgia, being the contemporary accounts of the German settlements in the province..." - De Renne. Following the 1741 production, this offering includes six additional annual continuations and two anthologies. They are: 1) SIEBENTE CONTINVATION DER AUSFÜHRLICHEN NACHRICHT VON DEN SALTZBURGISCHEN EMIGRANTEN.... Halle. 1741. [52],361- 704pp. (lacking the last twelve pages) plus folding table. Largely unopened. 2) NUENTE CONTINVATION DER AUSFÜHRLICHEN NACHRICHT VON DEN SALTZBURGISCHEN EMIGRANTEN.... Halle. 1743. [4],[1015]-1270pp. 3) ZEHENTE CONTINVATION DER AUSFÜHRLICHEN NACHRICHT VON DEN SALTZBURGISCHEN EMIGRANTEN.... Halle. 1744. [24],[1771]-1930pp., without the misnumbering of p.1802 as 8002 found in some copies. Partially unopened. 4) ELFTE CONTINVATION DER AUSFÜHRLICHEN NACHRICHT VON DEN SALTZBURGISCHEN EMIGRANTEN.... Halle. 1745. [12],[1931]-2138pp. Partially unopened. 5) ZW?-LTE CONINVATION DER AUSFÜHRLICHEN NACHRICHT VON DEN SALTZBURGISCHEN EMIGRANTEN.... Halle. 1746. [12],[2139]-2270pp., lacking the appended Register (eighteen leaves). 6) DER DRE YZEHENTEN CONTINVATION DERER AUSFÜHRLICHEN NACHRICHT VON DEN SALTZBURGISCHEN EMIGRANTEN.... Halle. 1749. [20],[73]-203pp. 7) DER AUSFUHRLICHEN NACHRICHTEN VON DER KONIGLICH-GROSS- BRITANNISCHEN COLONIE SALTZBURGISCHER EMIGRANTEN IN AMERICA.... Halle. 1746. [64],358,[2]pp. Intended to reprint the sixth through the twelfth continuations, only the first continuation intended for this volume is present. That being said, the numerous separate continuations listed above plus this comprise, to this point, a complete assemblage of all continuations save the one for 1742. 8) DER AUSFUHRLICHEN NACHRICHTEN VON DER KONIGLICH-GROSS- BRITANNISCHEN COLONIE SALTZBURGISCHER EMIGRANTEN IN AMERICA.... Halle. 1752. [26],30,537-770pp. Largely unopened. The last of the anthologies, intended to reprint the thirteenth through the eighteenth continuations, present here is solely the continuation for 1752. Combined with the separate 1749 continuation listed above, five continuations from this last group are lacking. Despite a few missing texts, this offering is an impressive run of the extraordinarily scarce Salzburger tracts. While it is possible the separate issues listed above were removed from anthologies, it is more likely they are the original separate issues for their respective years, and as such they are of the greatest rarity. The De Renne library possessed only the seventeenth and eighteenth continuations in the separate issue. A simply exhaustive chronicle of the Germans in Georgia, considered by far the best account of the region for its time.

        Les agremens de la campagne, ou remarques particulieres sur la construction des maisons de campagne plus ou moins magnifiques, des jardins de plaisance, & des plantages, avec les ornemens qui en dépendent, &c. 3 vols. Paris, David le Jeune, 1752.

      - Contemporary marbled calf leatehr, gilt lettering and ornaments. 8o: 3 vols., pag.: (vol. 1) [1] xxxix 249; (vol. 2) vi 326; (vol. 3) ii 335. With 16 folding plates after the original plates by J. van der Spyk, F. van Bleyswyck, J. Wandelaar and J.C. Philips. Fine set of this rare French translation by De Groot of this highly important horticultural treatise by the Dutch cloth merchant, art patron, and 'first garden theorist of the Netherlands' Pieter de la Court (1664-1739), His estate ‘Meerburg’ was situated near Leiden. The first Dutch edition of the book was published in 1737. It contains details of the laying out and planting of small Dutch pleasure gardens, stressing the importance of water, proportional harmony and careful consideration for site. De la Court emphasizes natural features above artful device, and the blending of the garden into the landscape, with the occasional consciously placed 'romantic element'. J.C. Loudon writes in his 'Encyclopaedia of Gardening' (1827) that the work is 'little known [.] among the best that have been produced'. The work contains information on the development of glasshouses and heating methods. The large engravings depict glasshouses, 5 fine plates of citrus fruit, and 2 further plates of citrus fruit and the magnificent pineapple and tuberose.B0136.

        EPANAPHORA INDICA [Parts I - VI]

      Lisbon, 1752. Small quarto. Antique-style speckled calf, spine gilt, raised bands, gilt morocco label. 20th-century bookplate and manuscript notes in Portuguese on modern front endpapers. Margins of Part V trimmed more closely than margins of other parts. Light wear to calf. Minor foxing; some toning; minor marginal worming affecting a few characters of text on pp.9-14. A very good copy. The extremely rare complete series of writings of José Freire de Monterroyo Mascarenhas on the Portuguese Viceroyalty of Goa under the Marquez do Castelo Novo. Dom Pedro Miguel de Almeida e Portugal, the Count of Assumar and first Marquez of Castelo Novo, served as Viceroy of Goa from 1744 to 1750. The present work, published in six parts between 1746 and 1753, describes Castelo Novo's government, its struggles with the neighboring Maratha Empire, and various other events of the period, including the voyage and installation of Father Lourenço de Santa Maria as Primate Archbishop of Goa and Primate of Oriental Asia in 1744. Castelo Novo was largely successful in defending Portuguese interests from the Marathas, earning the title Marquez do Alorna for his capture of the city of that name in 1746. In his major work on the Portuguese in India, Frederick Charles Danvers writes that the "government of the Marquez de Castello-Novo e Alorna is deservedly looked upon as a brilliant episode in the declining years of Portuguese Power in India, and he as one of the best and most successful Viceroys of that period" (THE PORTUGUESE IN INDIA, Vol. II, p.418). Freire de Monterroyo Mascarenhas's work, the most extensive history of this episode, has also been noted for "throw[ing] much new light on Mahratta [i.e. Maratha] History" when it was examined by Ethel M. Pope for her 1937 work, INDIA IN PORTUGUESE LITERATURE (p.191). The six parts of the EPANAPHORA... are as follows: 1) PARTE I: EPANAPHORA INDICA NA QUAL SE DÀ NOTICIA DA VIAGEM, QUE O ...SENHOR MARQUEZ DE CASTELO NOVO FEZ COM O CARGO DE VICE-REY AO ESTADO DA INDIA, E DOS PRIMEIROS PROGRESSOS DO SEU GOVERNO...E SE REFEREM TAMBEM OS SUCCESSOS DA VIAGEM DO...SENHOR D. FR. LOURENÇO DE SANTA MARIA, ARCEBISPO DE GOA.... [1746]. 2) PARTE II: EPANAPHORA INDICA EM QUE SE REFEREM OSPROGRESSOS QUE TEM FEITO NO GOVERNO DO ESTADO DA INDIA PORTUGUESA O...SENHOR MARQUEZ DE CASTELO NOVO.... [1747]. 3) PARTE III: EPANAPHORA INDICA CONTINUA-SE EM REFERIR OS INCLITOS PROGRESSOS DO...SENHOR MARQUEZ DE CASTELO NOVO.... [1748]. This part contains a large folding map of Goa and its surrounding lands, "PLANTA DA JLHA DE GOA NA INDIA E SUAS TERRAS CONSINANTES f. por d'Orgeval 1747." 4) PARTE IV: EPANAPHORA INDICA EM QUE SE LERÁM OS PROGRESSOS POLITICOS, MILITARES, E CIVIS, QUE NO DISCURSO DO ANNO DE 1747, FEZ NO SEU GOVERNO O...SENHOR MARQUEZ DE ALORNA.... [1748]. 5) PARTE V: EPANAPHORA INDICA CONTINUAM OS PROGRESSOS DO GOVERNO DO...SENHOR MARQUEZ DE ALORNA.... [1750]. 6) PARTE VI: EPANAPHORA INDICA CONTINUAÕ-SE, E FINALIZAÕ- SE OS PROGRESSOS DO GOVERNO DO...SENHOR MARQUEZ DE ALORNA.... [1752]. An early 20th-century inscription on the front free endpaper notes the quality of this work ("Classico, muito estimado") and the great difficulty in procuring or assembling a volume containing all six parts, a task that took the original owner of this volume "many years." This owner also mentions that the "sage orientalist [Mons Rodolfo Sebastião] Dalgado was aware of only four parts." WorldCat and OCLC list only two complete copies, at the National Library of Australia and the Newberry Library; the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal in Lisbon also holds a copy in all six parts. Harvard and the University of Minnesota both hold copies in only the first five parts. Not in Palau.

        Versuch einer Anweisung die Flöte traversiere zu spielen.

      Berlin, Voß 1752. - 4°. (7) lvs., 334 pp., (11) lvs.; (1) leaf., (12) lvs. 24 engraved plates with music, 2 engraved vignettes. Contemporary leather (rubbed, head of spine restored, joints a little broken); the music plates separately bound in contemporary wrappers. First edition of this very important traverse flute tutor and music theory; the book appeared simultaneously in German at Berlin and in French at Paris. Quantz (1697 - 1773) was a pupil of Zelenka and Fux in Vienna. In 1728 he became a tutor in Berlin for the flute to the later Prussian King Friedrich II, 1741 and was appointed official chamber musician and composer to the court. He wrote approx. 300 concertos for flute in the style of Vivaldi as well as 200 pieces of chamber music for the flute, improving the construction of the flute by the introduction of a second valve or key. His "Attempt at a manual for playing the flute traversially " is more than purely a manual for playing an instrument: It represents one of the most important writings of its time on music theory. "His rules for adornment are tied to a specific time and partly personal opinion . His explanations regarding general ideas for performing, however, are valid for the entire European music of the late Baroque and Rococo. Many of his utterances concerning musical education, choice of career and aptitude of the instrumentalist . remarks regarding the experiencing of music and the tasks of the componists and of the interpreter are generally valid." (MGG X, 1804). Quantz propagated the "mixed tastes", of combining the Italian art of adornment, French architecture and rhythm as well as the German art of counterpoint to form a completely new style. Multiple forms of expression, changes in the instrumentation, and variety of harmonisation through the use of dissonance alll belonged to this idea of " mixed tastes ", just as much as the "expression" of the performance itself, which he demanded of his interpreters, in order to make the thoughts present within the music itself understandable. The book was published at the same time in German and French. Minor water-staining, a good copy. RISM B VI 676; Hirsch I, 477. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Laws of New-York, from the Year 1691, to 1751, Inclusive, Published According to an Act of the General Assembly

      Printed by James Parker, New York 1752 - [6],iii,488,[1]pp. including Errata leaf. Half calf and marbled boards in antique style, leather label. Small old ink library stamp on verso of titlepage, some toning and minor foxing, marginal dampstaining to some leaves, with a remarkable contemporary poem "Epitaph on Thomas Paine," apparently an original composition, penned on two of the terminal blanks. Very good. One of the earliest compilations of the laws of colonial New York, and the first digest of the colonial statutes in force at that time. The work was prepared by William Smith (author of the History of New York ) and William Livingston, both prominent New York attorneys. The work is also notable for the subscriber's list, which includes prominent names such as Benjamin Franklin, Charles Pinckney, and James De Lancey, among others. The book belonged to James Smith and Peter Smith of Dutchess County, New York, who have noted ownership on the last blank leaf. In evidently the same hand there is an extremely interesting manuscript verse epitaph on Thomas Paine on the versos of the last two sheets. The poem is composed of some thirty-four lines, the text of which is apparently unpublished. It was likely written by the same James Smith who signs his name in the book. Smith was a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in Duchess County, New York during the American Revolution. In September 1775, Smith was tarred and feathered for openly opposing the County Committee, who had decided to take certain arms away from local British soldiers. Smith was an ardent Loyalist, and as a result, he was summarily held as a prisoner by the American rebels for three years during the war. After his release, Smith joined the British army, petitioning to form a regiment under Col. Abraham Cuyler. As a Loyalist, Smith would have been no admirer of Paine's, and he seems to have loosed his venom in this manuscript poem. The poem begins: "The wit that lays here below the Cold E[a]rth / He quitted the land where he Drew his first bre[a]th / Commence the Apostle of bloodshed and strife / And practise[d] the trade to the End of his Life / Sedition and Nonsence with Lyes to Dispence / and took up the title of the Common Sense." The poem continues in the same brutally unflattering terms, eventually calling out Paine by name near the end: "Blaspheams the Almighty Lives in filth like a hog / Abandon in De[a]th and Interd like a Dog / Thom Pa[i]ne for the Devil is sur[e]ly a match." What the poem lacks in poetic refinement, it makes up for in vitriol. An important and handsomely produced volume, with an undiscovered gem of a contemporary manuscript poem from a passionate Loyalist. Benedict 345. Tower 624. Evans 6897. ESTC W6326. Sabin 53730.

Den anderen, met het Hollandsche Oost-Indische Compagnie schip, genaamt Rustenwerk, ...Amsterdam, Bernardus Mourik, [1752 or soon after]. 4to. With 2 full-page etched plates. Disbound.

      Landwehr & V.d. Krogt 437; STCN (4 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 1238. The first edition of a compelling account of two fatal voyages, of the French East Indiaman Le Prince, and the VOC ship Rustenwerk (Rust en Werk). Le Prince, commanded by Captain Morin, left the port of Lorient on 19 February 1752, sailing for Pondicherry. The voyage had passed off quietly when fire was discovered in the ship. It spread fast, and the ship exploded when the fire reached the gunpowder magazine, leaving only 10 survivors. The second account relates the seizure of the ship Rustenwerk, a 650-ton Dutch East Indiaman. Moored off Ternate, it was taken by the pirate Frans Fransz on 28 June 1751 and some 12 passengers (including the Captain) were killed. The survivors reached Batavia by way of Makassar and sailed for Holland. The VOC eventually managed to retake the ship, but Frans Fransz escaped with the valuable cargo. The account includes a list of 210 VOC ships lost in the period 1688-1752 through disasters, mutiny, piracy etc.

      Paris: Guillyn, 1752. The Menon family copy, signed by the author. New (fourth) ediiton, augmented with many new ragouts and recipes for liqueurs. Two volumes. Pp. viii, 441 [misnumbered 451 by the printer]; iv, 428. 8vo., attractive contemporary calf, spine elaborately gilt in compartments with tan and gilt spine labels, marbled endpapers, green silk page markers still intact, few small wormholes in the binding and marbled endpapers, small tear not affecting text on p.202 of 2nd volume. A very good, handsome set with only slight browning. A very early edition of one of the most important eighteenth century French cookery books, Menon's classic work being first published in 1746. Apparently the author's own copy, signed on the first page. The set was the copy in the Chateau de Villiers according to small pen inscriptions on each title and tiny stamps on the first blanks. The first blank of the first volume bears the remarkable history of the book, written in ink in 1875. The story it relates is that the first owner of the book was Mrs. Menon, it passed to Margueritte Menon, her daughter, who was married to Claude Dodant, then to Anne Dodant, wife of Henri de Villemenard, then to their son Charles de Villemenard, then to Marie de Villemenard and finally to the author of the note, Villiers. The note is initialled and dated. It seems an extraordinary story to invent so one has to assume this is Menon family copy - even more interesting as the history of Menon is obscure.

      Mexico: Impr. de Doña Maria de Rivera Small 8vo (14.8 cm; 5.875"). [15] ff., 324 pp.. 1752 Mining was one of the chief industries of colonial Mexico, and after a century of decline during the 1600s, the 18th century saw a renaissance in ore extraction, chiefly due to new technologies that made it possible to rework old ore and to achieve higher than previously imagined levels of silver and gold extracted from newly mined ore. Berdugo's work, a vade mecum of conversion tables of values for gold of different carats and for silver of different values of purity, was => absolutely essential for all merchants and other business people, and for government workers in the treasury department — for milled coins were the exception in Mexican commerce, cob pieces the norm, and raw gold and silver, including dust, were extremely common. The volume ends with the "Reglas varias, para sacar juntos, o separados en pasta, o en moneda los reales derechos, que se pagan a S. Mag. De el oro y de la plata, y para reducir a toda su ley estos metales." An economic work of which we trace fewer than nine U.S. copies, this was printed by Doña Maria de Rivera with a red and black title-page, and with woodcut arms on the first dedication page. The charming cut of a herald cherub appears after the decima dedicated to the author at the end of the preliminaries. Contemporary full Mexican calf, modestly tooled in gilt and with all edges red; recased, new endpapers. Final two leaves little ragged at edges costing a few letters and with small hole at center and short tears at inner margin; old staining and age-toning/browning throughout. => There is every indication that this well-produced little volume saw time "in the field"!

        A Genuine and Impartial Account of the Life of Miss Mary Blandy

      1752. The "Love Philtre" was Arsenic [Murder]. [Blandy, Mary (1720-1752)]. A Genuine and Impartial Account of the Life of Miss Mary Blandy, Particularly from the Time of Her Commitment to Oxford-Castle, To Her Execution at Oxford, Monday, April 6, 1752, For Poisoning Her Father. With Her Own Account of the Affair Between Her and Mr. Cranstoun, From Their First Acquaintance, In 1746: In a Narrative of the crime for Which She Suffered. Also Copies of Original Letters to Her, And Her Answers Thereto: And a Copy of Her Declaration, (in Which is Contained a Solemn Confession of Her Faith) Which She Sign'd Immediately After Receiving the Sacrament, And Desired to be Made Publick After Her Death. Likewise the Declaration Which She Made at the Place of Execution. London: Printed and Sold by W. Jackson, 1752. 17 [1] pp. Includes one-page publisher advertisement. Title page has large copperplate portrait of Blandy, who is holding the fatal "love philtre.". Main text in parallel columns. Quarto (9" x 6-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent period-style three-quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt title and fillets to spine, title page re-hinged. Moderate toning and light foxing, minor tears to margins of a few leaves, light soiling to title page. A handsomely bound copy of a scarce title. * Only edition. The well-educated daughter of a prosperous lawyer, Blandy was not a typical female criminal of the era. Her unfortunate story begins with a dowry. Her father, Francis, advertised an unusually large dowry for Mary, ?10,000. This attracted many suitors including one who captivated Mary, the Honourable Captain William Henry Cranstoun, the son of a Scottish nobleman. Francis became angry when he learned that Cranstoun was already married and realized that he was after the dowry. Sensing danger, Cranstoun persuaded Mary to give her father an ancient "love philtre" he acquired. Cranstoun said it would make the father like him. It was actually arsenic. Mary was fooled by this ruse and administered the powders. When her father was stricken and she learned what she had done, Mary foolishly burned Cranstoun's letters and disposed of the remaining powders. Cranstoun fled to France when it was clear that Mary was going to be arrested. The trial was interesting because it was the first of its kind to employ detailed medical evidence

        Cassandre

      à Paris: ChezBauche, 1752. Fine. ChezBauche, à Paris 1752, 3 tomes en 3 vol. in-12 (9,5x17cm), (2) xij ; 522pp. (5) et (4) 504pp. et (4) 486pp., 3 volumes reliés. - New edition. Binders of the time in full mottled calf. Back smooth decorated with gilded finials and boxes, as well as parts of title and volume number of red and green morocco. Net gilded on the cuts. All red edges. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, version abrégée donnée par Alexandre-Nicolas de La Rochefoucauld, marquis de Surgère. De 1642 à 1645 parurent 10 volumes composant Cassandre, ils ont été réduits dans cette édition à 3. Reliures de l'époque en plein veau marbré. Dos lisses ornés de fleurons et caissons dorés, ainsi que de pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge et vert. Filet doré sur les coupes. Toutes tranches rouges. Bon exemplaire. Ecrivain prolixe et fécond, La Calprenede entre dans le monde littéraire au moment de l'apogée du genre précieux et pastoral dont L'Astrée d'Honoré d'Urfé était déjà le modèle. Il y ajoute des princes, des rois, et des coups d'épée, bref les ingrédients du roman de chevalerie, tel La Jerusalem délivrée du Tasse ; le résultat est une série d'enlèvements, de combats, d'amours contrariés, bref un incroyable mélange entre le genre pastoral, celui de la chevalerie et celui des romans d'aventures grecs et latins, l'auteur semblant jouer adroitement de tous les domaines pour contenter son public. Ses oeuvres furent très appéciées et lues, mais on ne les considéra jamais comme sérieuses, à l'image de leur auteur, gentlhomme gascon de belle humeur. Cassandre est le premier des romans de l'auteur, il se déroule dans l'empire des Perses, bien après sa conquête par Alexandre le Grand.

        The Spirit of Laws

      Complete 2-volume set. Translation by Mr. Nugent. 8vo. Quarter calf with gilt rules and lettering and decorative paper over boards. xl, (19pp), 451pp, (1p ad); xvi, 483pp, (1p ad), (46pp), (2pp ads). Decorative endpapers. Good plus. Though internally a superb very good, the calf spines on this early 20th century binding are rather chipped, rough and delicate. A tight and decent second edition ("corrected and considerably improved") of this early translation of this influential 1748 treatise on political philosophy. Most interesting is the provenance of this set: The inner flyleaf of the first volume bears the large, pencilled ownership signature of Adlai E. Stevenson II, who also adds "Florence 126" below. Stevenson and his sister toured Italy that year, during which she met her future husband. Stevenson (1900-65) was the Illinois governor who twice lost a presidential bid against Dwight Eisenhower (1952 and '56), later serving as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Labeled "egghead" by Eisenhower, Stevenson's intellectual demeanor and liberal platform made him the darling of intellegentsia, academics and Hollywood elite -- so it's not surprising his reading interests as a young man would lean towards heavyweight philosophical works such as this. A choice association set.

        LAWS OF NEW-YORK, FROM THE YEAR 1691, TO 1751, INCLUSIVE, PUBLISHED ACCORDING TO AN ACT OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY

      New York: Printed by James Parker, 1752.. [6],iii,488,[1]pp. including Errata leaf. Folio. Half calf and marbled boards in antique style, leather label. Small old ink library stamp on verso of titlepage, some toning and minor foxing, marginal dampstaining to some leaves, with a remarkable contemporary poem "Epitaph on Thomas Paine," apparently an original composition, penned on two of the terminal blanks. Very good. One of the earliest compilations of the laws of colonial New York, and the first digest of the colonial statutes in force at that time. The work was prepared by William Smith (author of the HISTORY OF NEW YORK) and William Livingston, both prominent New York attorneys. The work is also notable for the subscriber's list, which includes prominent names such as Benjamin Franklin, Charles Pinckney, and James De Lancey, among others. The book belonged to James Smith and Peter Smith of Dutchess County, New York, who have noted ownership on the last blank leaf. In evidently the same hand there is an extremely interesting manuscript verse epitaph on Thomas Paine on the versos of the last two sheets. The poem is composed of some thirty-four lines, the text of which is apparently unpublished. It was likely written by the same James Smith who signs his name in the book. Smith was a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in Duchess County, New York during the American Revolution. In September 1775, Smith was tarred and feathered for openly opposing the County Committee, who had decided to take certain arms away from local British soldiers. Smith was an ardent Loyalist, and as a result, he was summarily held as a prisoner by the American rebels for three years during the war. After his release, Smith joined the British army, petitioning to form a regiment under Col. Abraham Cuyler. As a Loyalist, Smith would have been no admirer of Paine's, and he seems to have loosed his venom in this manuscript poem. The poem begins: "The wit that lays here below the Cold E[a]rth / He quitted the land where he Drew his first bre[a]th / Commence the Apostle of bloodshed and strife / And practise[d] the trade to the End of his Life / Sedition and Nonsence with Lyes to Dispence / and took up the title of the Common Sense...." The poem continues in the same brutally unflattering terms, eventually calling out Paine by name near the end: "Blaspheams the Almighty Lives in filth like a hog / Abandon in De[a]th and Interd like a Dog / Thom Pa[i]ne for the Devil is sur[e]ly a match." What the poem lacks in poetic refinement, it makes up for in vitriol. An important and handsomely produced volume, with an undiscovered gem of a contemporary manuscript poem from a passionate Loyalist. BENEDICT 345. TOWER 624. EVANS 6897. ESTC W6326. SABIN 53730.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Hamburg, 26. VI. 1752. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt (Wasserzeichen: doppelstrichige Antiquaversalien "IKM"). 4to. Unbekannter Brief an den Schriftsteller Nikolaus Dietrich Giseke (1724-65): "Sie machen mich, auf die gefälligste Art, ungewiß, ob ich mit grösserm Vergnügen Ihre Predigten oder Ihre Briefe lese: so sehr verdienen beyde meine gantze Hochschätzung. Mir ist, allererst vor drey Tagen, und zwar zu Rugenbergen, auf dem Gebiete und im Saale dH. Dr. [Jacob] Rölcke, eingefallen, daß, da der Diaconus in Zehren, dH. [Gottlieb] Fuchs, unverantwortlich, vergessen hat, seinem so gütigen Fürsprecher, dem Herrn Abt [Johamm Friedrich Wilhelm] Jerusalem, sein neues Glück zu melden, mir um so mehr oblieget, Se. Hochwürden davon, ohne längeren Verzug, zu benachrichtigen und nochmals zu danken, daß dieser rechtschaffene Mann mein dreistes Bitten damals, als der Diaconus zu Zehren ohne alle Hülfe und Hofnung war, aufs grosmüthigste, Statt finden lassen. Dieser ist gewiß glücklich. Schon itzo stehet er, in einer der angenehmsten Gegenden von Sachsen, im Amte, zu 400 Thlr., ohne, wie andere, mit dem Ackerbau zu schaffen zu haben: vier Meilen von Dresden, eine diesseits Meissen, an der Elbe. Der Dresdensche Bürgermeister [Ernst Chr.] Hübner, ein vernünftiger, angesehener Mann, hat ihm nicht nur seine Stieftochter zur Gehülfin gegeben, mit der er durch dH. Dr. [Johann Joachim Gottlob] Am-Ende getrauet worden, sondern ist auch, wie dH. [Johann] Vaake mich versichert, würklich im Stande, ihn nach Dresden beruffen zu helffen. Wer hätte vor einigen Jahren ihm dieses verheissen können? Dieses nun gedachte ich an dH. Abt selbst zu schreiben. Die einzige, vielleicht unhinlängliche, Ursache warum es nicht geschiehet, ist, daß ich Ihn mit keiner Antwort bemühen mag, da ich weiß daß mit Seinen Höflichkeiten und Freundschafts-Bezeugungen nur die beschwerlichste Menge Seiner Geschäfte in Vergleich zu stellen stehe. Ich bitte Sie also, Ihm dieses, zu einer gelegenen Stunde, anzuzeigen, meinen Dank recht gros und so wie ich meine Schuldigkeit empfinde vorzustellen, und zugleich dem ehrlichen Engelländer, der wahrlich Seiner Achtung nicht unwürdig, ein Geistlicher ist und es zu seyn verdient, so lange dessen kurtzer Aufenthalt in Braunschweig währt, eine gütige Aufnahme aufs beste zu erwircken. Mein Brief an dH. [Johann Arnold] Ebert wird diesen meinen Nachbarn und recht wehrten Freund, Mr. [Timothy] Neve, Ihnen kennbar machen und ich ersuche, den Brief zu lesen, ehe Sie ihn dH. Abt darstellen und empfehlen. Ich habe gedacht, ihn insonderheit mit dem glücklichen Übersetzer des Young bekannt machen zu müssen und diesem, nicht weniger als jenem, damit eine Gefälligkeit zu erweisen. - Ich liebe unsern Freund Klopstock je mehr ich ihn kennen lerne. Wir haben, bey dH. Dr. Rölcke, zu Rugenbergen, ein paar Tage recht vergnügt zugebracht, allwo ich auch dH. Hofmeisters Lutterloh Gesellschaft gehabt habe, die mir sehr angenehm gewesen ist. Nur dH. Klopstocks seiner kan ich nicht immer so habhaft werden, als ich wünschte. - Man macht mir Hofnung, daß Sie bald wohlversorgt seyn werden. Es gehe Ihnen wohl, in Ihren jungen und alten Tagen! Das wünsche ich Ihnen hertzlich. Sie verdienen diesen Anwunsch und ich bin unveränderlich / Ihr / Ergebenster Diener / Hagedorn." - Einige alte Bleistiftanstreichungen und Numerierung "46". Zeitgenöss. Faltspuren; etwas gebräunt bzw. braunfleckig; die Ränder stellenweise mit kl. Läsuren. Während das erwähnte, am selben Tag verfasste Schreiben an den Dichter und Übersetzer Johann Arnold Erbert in der Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel überliefert ist (Slg. Vieweg 642; Briefe Nr. 176), war das vorliegende Schreiben bislang unbekannt. Nicht bei: Hagedorn, Briefe (hg. von H. Gronemeyer, Berlin/New York 1997) (wäre als Nr. 176a einzuordnen).

        Le Rabelais moderne ou les oeuvres de maitre François Rabelais EDITION ORIGINALE

      AAmsterdam: ChezJean Frédéric Bernard, 1752. Fine. ChezJean Frédéric Bernard, AAmsterdam 1752, 6 tomes en 8 Vol. Pet. in-12 (8x14,5cm), relié. - Edition carried out by the historian François Marsy this modernized version of the work of Rabelais, with extensive notes and comments. Binding right calf antique brown granite. Back smooth decorated with grotesque. As part red morocco and volume number in black leather. Triple mentoring net on the boards. Cailloutées slices. Beautiful series, although decorative. Fresh set. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition réalisée par l'historien François de Marsy de cette version modernisée de l'oeuvre de Rabelais, avec de nombreuses notes et commentaires. Reliure en plein veau d'époque brun granité. Dos lisse orné à la grotesque. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge et de tomaison en maroquin noir. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches cailloutées. Mors supérieur du tome VII restauré ; mors du tome III restaurés ; mors supérieur du tome I également restauré ; certains mors supérieurs fendillés. Faux-titres des tomes 2, 5 et 6 absents. Belle série, bien décorative. Diversités de teintes dans les pièces de titre et de tomaison. Ensemble frais. Préface de la traduction de Rabelais en français moderne : "J'ai soigneusement évité d'insérer dans le nouveau texte aucun terme trop moderne & trop neuf, ce qui eut causé une bigarrure ridicule. J'ai été si scrupuleux a cet egard que je ne crois pas avoir substitué aucun mot, qui ne se rencontre dans les Ecrivains contemporains de Rabelais, & qu"on ne trouvât peut-etre dans Rabelais même, si l'on se donnoit la peine de le chercher". Le grand intérêt de cette mise en français moderne est que l'édition propose les termes anciens qui ont été changés et des notes qui accompagnent ce changement ou cette modernisation. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

Jhdts. Herder, Lavater, Heinse, Hamann, Mendelssohn u. a. verdanken ihm Anregung, und es gehörte zu Schopenhauers ständiger Lektüre in seinen letzten Lebensjahren. Auch heute wird die Bedeutung Huartes als Bahnbrecher einer neuen Experimentalwissenschaft, die sich inzwischen zur Psychologie, zur Gehirntopographie und wissenschaftlichen Begabungspsychologie weiterentwickelt hat, allgemein anerkannt" (Kindler VIII, 111). - Fl.

        Osservazioni critiche di Gio: Andrea Tria Arcivescovo di Tiro Intorno alla Polizia della Chiesa Che si legge da suoi primi tempi sino al presente ne quattro Tomi della Storia Civile del Regno di Napoli. (5 libri en un tomo).

      Roma Giovanni Zempel 1752 - Rilegatura originale con titulo dorato en el dorso, dorso tarlato, titulo stampa en rosso e nero, XXVIII, 644 latos, gr. 8°. Pietro Giannone - Ad Ischitella e nato nel 1676 lo storico e giureconsulto Pietro Giannone. Egli fu autore di una monumentale "Istoria civile del regno di Napoli", che gli costò vent'anni di lavoro e che, condannata dal Santo Uffizio come eretica e scismatica, gli procurò la scomunica. Visse alcuni anni in esilio, a Vienna e Ginevra. Fu fatto catturare dai Savoia e morì nel 1748 dopo tre anni di carcere a Torino. Oltre all'opera citata, monumento del giurisdizionalismo e dell'anticurialismo, accesa critica delle usurpazioni ecclesiastiche sui diritti della monarchia e della potestà civile, Giannone lasciò importanti scritti di storia a difesa dei suoi principi, fra cui il "Triregno", appassionata requisitoria contro il potere temporale della Chiesa cattolica, ed un'autobiografia.
