        Laws of New-York, From the Year 1691, To 1751, Inclusive

      1752. Colonial Laws of New York Printed by James Parker, 1752 [New York]. [Livingston, William (1723-1790), Compiler]. [Smith, William Smith, Jr. (1728-1793), Compiler]. Laws of New-York, from the Year 1691 to 1751, Inclusive. Published According to an Act of the General Assembly. New York: Printed James Parker, 1752. [i], iv, [iii], [1], 488. Folio (13-1/2" x 9"). Recent quarter calf over cloth, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Light browning, occasional faint dampstaining, confined mostly to margins, some edgewear to title page and final three index leaves, internally clean. * First edition. With a subscriber list that includes Benjamin Franklin, Charles Pinckney, and James De Lancey. This volume was commissioned by the colonial assembly in order to codify the body of laws that had accrued since becoming a crown colony in 1690. Livingston and Smith were prominent New York attorneys who followed divergent paths during the Revolution. Smith, a loyalist, served as Chief Justice of New York during the British occupation. He settled in Canada after the war, served as Chief Justice of Quebec, and ended his career as the first chief justice of Lower Canada. Livingston was an ardent supporter of American independence and a delegate to the First, Second, and Third Continental Congresses. He became New Jersey's governor in 1776 and represented that state at the Constitutional Convention in 1787. The importance of this publication is evident in its subscriber list, a virtual "who's who" of colonial statesmen. It appears that fewer than 200 copies of this volume were printed, counting the 169 subscriber copies and three official copies produced for the colony. Tower, The Charlemagne Tower Collection of Colonial Laws 624. Benedict, Acts and Laws of the Thirteen Original Colonies and States 343-345.

      A. Millar, London 1752 - .of those Countries, and a particular Account of the Religion, Government, and Customs of the Natives. Including also, Their Discovery of the Brazils, and Their Wars with the Moors. Gibbs' scarce English version of Osorio's important history of Portuguese exploration, featuring Vasco da Gama, Magellan, Cabral, Albuquerque, and others. Osorio was well-regarded in his day as a stylist of Latin, earning the sobriquet 'the Portuguese Cicero'. First edition in English. Two volumes bound in period brown calf, red leather labels. Worn & frayed, hinges cracked but sound, heads of spines chipped, part of the label of volume two missing; catalogue clipping describing the set pasted inside front cover of volume 1, ink name & date (Nov. [19]43) in each volume, minor damage to endsheets, pencilled bookseller's notes inside rear, bookseller's label in rear of each volume; some staining to early/late pages; bookplate in volume one (see below), evidence of bookplate removal in volume two. Interesting provenance: volume one bears an armorial bookplate of severe simplicity: a blackletter 'E' under an Earl's coronet of five pearls - no doubt were one of sufficient breeding one would know exactly who that was. There were, as far as we can tell, three Earls 'E': Essex, Exeter & Euston. Essex was known to use an 'SX' sigil, but not necessarily exclusively; interestingly, it was Essex who carried off Osorio's extensive library when he sacked Faro in 1596, much of which ended up at the Bodleian; perhaps a later Essex completed the circle when he acquired Osorio's book.

        Lettres de Monsieur de Maupertuis. Nec mihi, si aliter sentias, molestum.

      Dresde: Chez George Conrad Walther, 1752 - Edition originale, in-16; [iv], 228p.; charmante vignette sur la page de titre de Matthieu Oesterreich, gravée par Johan Martin Bernigeroth et datée 1752. Reliure d"époque en plein veau moucheté, dos à nerfs joliment orné, coupes ornées, tranches mouchetées. Accroc à la coiffe supérieure, sinon un très bon exemplaire agréablement relié. Ce petit traité résume de manière simple et agréable plusieurs des théories novatrices de Maupertuis. Géomètre chargé de l'expédition au pôle nord pour la mesure du méridien terrestre, qui confirma l'aplatissement de la Terre, Maupertuis conduisit également des recherches sur l'hérédité et la mécanique céleste. Savant au caractère difficile, il s'attira l'inimitié de nombreux confrères. Invité par le roi de Prusse il fut nommé Président de l'Académie de Berlin, il se querella avec Koenig, qu'il fit expulser de l'Académie, puis avec Voltaire. Celui-ci ridiculisa en retour certaines des théories exposées dans le présent ouvrage et ces attaques hâtèrent la fin de Maupertuis, qui mourut à Bâle en 1759.

        "Carte de Nouvelles Decouvertes au Nord de la Mer du Sud"

      Paris, 1752. THE LANDMARK MAP OF ALASKA THAT GAVE NEW EVIDENCE OF THE FICTITIOUS NORTHWEST PASSAGE Copper-plate engraving with original outline color: 183/8" x 263/8" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 157-158. This is a landmark map in the history of northwestern cartography, charting the common boundaries of North America, Asia and the fictitious "Mer ou Baye de l'Ouest." French cartographer Philippe Buache's map illustrated the recent findings of explorers Aleksey Chirikov and Vitus Bering, a legendary pair of adventurers who led a Russian-sponsored expedition to Northwest America. (Chirikov is recognized as the first European to land on the northwestern coast of North America.) Buache likely had special access to this Russian expedition's findings as Buache's brother-in-law, Joseph Nicolas Delisle, served as Russia's official court cartographer. Nevertheless, while portions of Buache's map were based on firm topographical data, his work remains most famous for lending false credence to the reportings of explorers Juan De Fuca and Admiral De Fonte. De Fuca and De Fonte both claimed to have found evidence of a Northwest Passage, providing a much sought-after link between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The 1,200 mile long "Mer ou Baye de l'Ouest" (Great Bay or Sea of the West) pictured on Buache's map, was supposedly discovered by Juan De Fuca in 1592. At that time, De Fuca claimed he had found a large inland sea in the American Northwest, which was connected to the North Sea by a strait. In 1640, as he was sailing north from the Pacific coast of South America, Spanish admiral Bartholome de Fonte also claimed to have discovered a large network of bays and rivers in the northwestern region of America. De Fonte further maintained that when he reached this area he had come in contact with another sailor who had claimed to have reached the Northwest by traveling west from Boston. Though both De Fuca's and De Fonte's reports turned out to be nothing more than over-imaginative speculation, several members of the French cartographical school long supported the explorers' theoretical claims. Such cartographers included, most notably, Buache himself and his second brother-in-law, Guillame Delisle. Thus, this map constitutes an extraordinarily important document in the history of Northwestern geography in general and Alaska in particular. It also provides false evidence of a passage that only ever existed in legend.. Book.

      NBG XXXXV, cols. 680-682. Interesting collection of autograph signed letters containing notes on personal, political and maritime matters, written by the French Grand Admiral Comte Laurent Jean François Truguet (10 January 1752-26 December 1839), knight of the Grand-Cross of the Legion d'Honneur. In 1765 he entered the Navy and took part in numerous battles in the service of the Ancien Regime. Major de Vaisseau from 1784, he cooperated on the tasks assigned to M. Choiseuil-Gouffier, ambassador to Constantinople, and was charged with instructing the Ottomans in the arts of fortification, artillery, naval architecture, etc. As an enthusiastic Republican, he supported the Revolution and was promoted to the rank of rear admiral in 1792. He bombarded Nice, Villefranche and Oneglia. Visiting Corsica, he was received by the Bonaparte family and began a romance with Elisa, sister of the future emperor. In 1804 he took a public stand against the establishment of the Empire in a letter that became historic. This consigned him to five years of severe disgrace. In 1809, however, the Emperor recalled him and gave him the command of the Kingdom of Holland's navy. After the fall of the Empire Truguet returned to Paris where Louis XVIII brought him back into the navy at the head of the naval corps. On the second restoration he was given overall command of the Brest fleet. At the end of the July monarchy, Truguet was elevated to the post of Grand Admiral, the highest naval honour.Important collection in good condition.

      1752 - News of the Philippines and Tonkin; a copy enhanced with 8 unknown plates made in Manila in the 18th century, representing the martyrs. 1752. Madrid. Imprenta de Domingo Fernandez de Arrojo. In 8vo (206 mm x 149 mm). 1 [blank] + 16 ff. + 202 + 7 ff. +1 [blank] + 8 plates. Contemporary vellum restored, spine lettered in ink. A fine copy, with oxidation spots to few leaves; 8 plates tipped on heavy paper interleaved in the text. First edition. A special copy, added with plates made in Manila, of an already rare work on the martyrs of Tonkin and the Philippines: Navamuel explains the progress the missionary activity of the Ordo Predicatorum (Dominican Order) in the East Indies, mainly in the Philippines and Vietnam. The arguments are given largely through the lives, work and martyrdom of Fray Saint Mateo Alonso de Leciniana and Fray Saint Francisco Gil de Federic under the reign of Trinh Doanh. Saint Leciniana (1702 ? Tonkin 1745) entered the Dominican Convent of Segovia, where he resided until sent to the School of Santo Tomas (Manila), and later Tonkin; in the last place he learned the native?s tongue and began preaching; after being denounced, he was wounded and captured, sent to Nam-dinh and then Hanoi, imprisoned and trialed, sentenced to death and executed, for not wanting to step on the cross. Saint Federic (1702 ? Tonkin 1745), also of Spanish birth, asked to be allowed to travel and work in the Indies. He was sent to Luzon, were he preached to the native people of Bataan and Pangasinan, also learning their tongue; suffered a similar fait than the former, only jailed for 8 years, suffering torture and humiliation, refused being rescued by ransom, and died after being sentenced to death. They met in jail, and died the same day, after the commutation of their death penalty was revoked. The interleaved engraved plates are remarkably rare; Lorenzo Atlas engraved them after drawings of Father Joseph Azcarate. We have been unable to locate them bibliographically except for an obscure note, nor could we trace any copy having appeared onto the market. Medina in his introduction to the seminal ?La imprenta en Manila? (1896), included a short ?biography? of the engravers of Manila; in it, he praises Lorenzo Atlas ?Figura con cierto brillo relativo como artista por sus laminas del glorioso martiorio de los franciscanos en el Japon? (pp. XLIX); Atlas was also responsible for full page plate of the martyrdom of the Saints at Japan, as well as the plate in Murillo Velarde?s work. One of the plates represents Saint Leciniana, and mentions his martyrdom in Tonkin. The artist for most is Fray Joseph Azcarate of whom the only reference is actually a mention of his owning of 5 copper plates representing the Dominican martyrs of China, probably mistakenly referring to the martyrs of Tonkin. They comprise, amongst others: 1- A laudatory poem on Charles III (signed ?Manilensis. Anno 1770.? 2- Fray Peter M. Sanz, depicted with a sword through his head, signed by Fray Joseph Azcarate, and engraved by L.[Lorenzo or Laureano] Atlas ?P. F. Jph Azcarate O. P. delin. L.

He also notes that it was his only work “that was successful on the first publication. It was well received abroad and at home,” more specifically, it transformed his reputation in France.

        Abhandlung, welche bey der Akademie zu Dijon im Jahr 1750. Denn Preis über folgende von der Akademie vorgelegte Frage davon getragen hat: Ob die Wiederherstellung der Wissenschaften und Künste etwas zur Läuterung der Sitten beygetragen hat? Aus dem Französischen des Herrn Rousseau, eines Genfers. Leipzig: Friedrich Lankisch, 1752 [bound with] Vertheidigung der Gelehrsamkeit: und sonderlich der schoenen Wissenschaften gegen den Herrn Rousseau, aus Genf, am hoechsten Geburtsfeste Sr. Koen. Hoheit des Durchlauchtigsten Koenigl. Churprinzen zu Sachsen, in dem philosophischen Hoersale zu Leipzig unternommen, von Innenbenanten. Leipzig: Bernhard Christoph Breitkopf, 1752.

      - Very rare first German edition of Rousseau's 'First Discourse', the work that made him famous throughout Europe, introducing key themes developed in his later writings. 'In 1749 the Academy of Dijon announced a prize for an essay on the effect of the progress of civilisation on morals. Rousseau competed, taking as his thesis the paradox of the superiority of the noble savage, and won the prize. Next year he published it, under the title of Un Discours sur les arts et sciences, to resounding applause' (PMM, p. 124). The French original was reviewed by Lessing in 1751, and was swiftly followed by this translation by the scientist Johann Daniel Titius -'a very productive member of Gottsched’s so-called translation factory, or "Ãœbersetzungsmanufaktur"' (Dictionary of Eighteenth- Century German Philosophers). 'Rousseau's [first] Discourse had a tremendous impact in Germany, occasioning a wave of response to his provocative denial that advancements in science and the arts brought with them moral improvement in mankind. This challenge to so bedrock a conviction of the entire Aufklärung could hardly go without rebuttal. Instead, German tomes ponderously full of piety for progress lumbered onto the field of discourse to denounce - or at least to correct - the wayward Genevan. Gottsched in Leipzig played a major role in orchestrating this scholarly outrage' (John H. Zammito, Kant, Herder, and the Birth of Anthropology, Chicago, 2002, p. 92). Bound second here are rare early examples of this scholarly German outrage by four young members of the Gesellschaft der freyen Künste, that Gottsched had founded in Leipzig the same year: Johann Friedrich Burscher (b. 1732, secretary of the Gesellschaft), Wilhelm Abraham Teller (b. 1734), Karl Friedrich Brucker, and Johann Traugott Schulz. Gottsched's own introduction in Latin is appended. Rousseau mentions these 'quatres sermons allemands' at the beginning of the Preface to his play Narcisse (1753) as examples of the misguided hostility his First Discourse had so quickly provoked. 2 publications in one volume, 8vo, 61, 134 (14 misnumbered 16), [1] pp., mid twentieth-century boards with hand-lettered paper spine label, contemporary annotation on the (repaired) front free endpaper, small library stamp on first title-page, faint marginal waterstain on the first and last few leaves, one leaf with an ink splash, otherwise very good clean copies.

        Bibliographia Poetica: A Catalogue of Engleish [sic] Poets, of the Twelfth, Thirteenth, Fourteenth, Fifteenth, and Sixteenth Centuries, With a Short Account of Their Works

      12mo. Modern brown cloth rebind with burgundy leather spine label. 407pp. Very good. Modern binding of course fine and pristine; some age toning about the edges of the title page; original text block clean and quite handsome. First edition. Ritson (1752-1803) was an eccentric but highly-regarded English antiquarian whose many collections of early texts includes such volumes as "A Select Collection of English Songs" (1783) and "Ancient Songs and Ballads from the Reign of King Henry the Second to the Revolution" (1792), "Robin Hood: A Collection of All the Ancient Poems, Songs, and Ballads, Now Extant Relative to That Celebrated English Outlaw" (1795). This unique copy of "Bibliographia Poetica" belonged to the American poet, editor and essayist JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL (1819-91), with his signature and the year "1843" boldly penned in brown ink at the top of the title page. Lowell makes three interesting editorial comments in the margins. On page 157, in a discussion of George Chapman, Lowell brackets the text "9. 'Justification of a strange action of Nero in burying with a solemn funerall one of the cast hayres of his mistresse Poppaea,' 1629. 4to. 10. 'A just reproofe of Juvenall,' 1629. 4to." -- and pens in "These are one Work. Vide 'Poetical Decameron' Vol1, p60" in his miniscule but neat hand. On page 242, Lowell pencils an asterick alongside the name John Higins, and at the bottom of this page notes, "He says at the end of the story of Mempricius that he was not yet thirty in 1575." And last on page 299, alongside the text "PHILLIP JOHN wrote and publish'd 'A rare and strange historicall bouell of Cleomenes and Sophonisba, surnamed Juliet; very pleasant to reade:' printed by Hugh Jackson, 1577, 8vo," Lowell neatly pens, "This Phillip also published 'The Life & Death of Sr Phillip Sidney, late Lord Governour of Flushing: His funeralls Solemnized in Paule's Church where he lyeth interred: with the whole order of the mournfull shewe as they marched through the citie of London on Thursday the 16 of February 1587. At London printed by Robt Waldegrave re 1587' Vide Collier's Poetical Decameron Vol 11. p. 50." Intriguing to note Lowell's attention to detail and the depth of his bibliographical expertise. In his 1870 book "Among My Books," Lowell writes, "From the two centuries between 1400 and 1600 the indefatigable Ritson in his Bibliographia Poetica has made us a catalogue of some six hundred English poets, or, more properly, verse-makers. Ninety-nine in a hundred of them are mere names, most of them no more than shadows of names, some of them mere initials. Nor can it be said of them that their works have perished because they were written in an obsolete dialect; for it is the poem that keeps the language alive, and not the language that buoys up the poem. The revival of letters, as it is called, was at first the revival of ancient letters, which, while it made men pedants, could do very little toward making them poets, much less toward making them original writers....

When Billmeyer and his father-in-law set up their Lutheran press in the 1780s, they acquired the surviving equipment of the reknowned Philadelphia printer Christopher Saur Jr., whose press the British had destroyed in 1777. The two small leather straps on this copy are old but not original, but all the brass clasp parts are present and attractive -- and it still clicks firmly closed. Despite mild wear, an exceptional copy.

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. [Attributes: First Edition]

Juan and Ulloa were the two Spanish officers who accompanied (some say spied on) La Condamine, the French scientist/explorer, on his travels and experiments in Ecuador from 1730 to 1741. Both men were acting as expedition security officers (reporting to the Spanish King) as no foreigner (La Condamine was French and therefore suspect) had yet to travel in New Spain. After returning to Spain they compiled a scholarly explanation of their journey with La Condamine and published their own scientific findings. These volumes have many fold-out maps and charts and two exquisite frontispieces. Volume I: Voyage au Perou, Premiere Partie. Contenant la Relation de la Route Suivie Jusqu'au Royaume de Quito.

        Elemens de l'Architecture navale , Traite pratique de la construction des vaisseaux

      Paris: Charles Antoine Jombert, 1752. Quarto, frontispiece, title-page vignette; a very good copy in contemporary mottled calf, front hinge worn. French naval construction. A beautiful first edition of this landmark in the development of naval architecture. This study distilled the French naval engineer Duhamel's years of experience into a well-organised manual, and was 'the first training manual for aspiring naval constructors ever produced' (James Pritchard, "From Shipwright to Naval Constructor", Technology and Culture, 28:1, p. 16). Duhamel was responsible for instilling a belief in best practice rather than simple routine, with the result that this is an important work of nascent engineering, concerned with obtaining the best results within the practical constraints of their trade. The mid-eighteenth century marked the zenith of early French naval construction, a period when the design of their warships was much envied and much copied (it is telling that the British regularly converted prizes into flagships). Especially in the second quarter of the eighteenth century, French shipwrights went through a period which saw many major innovations, and this study was the signature work. Duhamel had initially been involved with detailed studies of specific questions such as the prevention of dry rot, the manufacture of rope, or the conservation of water at sea. His pursuit of answers to such questions led him to England and Holland, as well as French arsenals and their India Company at Lorient. It was Duhamel who bucked the trend of increasingly theoretical works, and he was behind the founding of elementary schools for apprentice shipwrights, the first founded in Toulon in 1741 and another in Paris shortly after. His influence is attested to by the fact that the 'chief constructors of the three major naval dockyards during the 1750s were all former students' (Pritchard, "From Shipwright to Naval Constructor", p. 15). This is a beautifully produced work, with twenty-five engravings on twenty-three folding plates (not twenty-four, as commonly listed). The elegant engraved frontispiece and vignettes at the head of each chapter are by Nicolas Ozanne; a naval engineer himself, Ozanne worked at Brest and Paris, and his work led to him being given 'le brevet de dessinateur de la marine'.

Four engraved plates by P. I Lutherberg after I. M. Weis. Strassburg: Ex officina libraria Amandi Konigii, 1752. 460 x 328 mm. Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards. Margins of 6 leaves skillfully repaired, minor soiling and spotting, otherwise a very good copy. </p><p> First Edition in Latin. Garrison-Morton 6018. Eisenmann&#39;s atlas of bipartite and double uterus. "A notable event in the [eighteenth] century was the publication of G. H. Eisenmann&#39;s Tabulae Anatomicae Quatuor Uteri in Strasbourg. His Atlas of the Uterus was an important advance in the history of gynecological anatomy" (O&#39;Dowd and Philipp, History of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, p. 64, misstating the publication date as 1725). The work was published in a French edition the same year. Eisenmann was a professor of medicine and pathology at Strassburg. Hirsch gives the Tabulae as Eisenmann&#39;s only publication; OCLC and RLIN also cite several collections of dissertations under Eisenmann&#39;s name.</p>
