      London, Thomas Osborne, 1752. Folio (375 x 235mm). pp. (8), 584, (4), with 28 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine in 6 compartments with black gilt lettered label, marbled sides. A separately published volume of Hill's 'A General Natural History', which contained a volume on Botany, one on Mineralogy and a final one on Zoology. The present work is an attractively illustrated encyclopaedia of the animal world. "Hill's principal achievement in zoology is the third volume of the 'General Natural History', on animals. A large section is devoted to microscopic animals, and some of the names Hill coined for these animals still stands, such as 'paramecium'"(DSB). "This work, in the English language, was unsurpassed as a source of information on natural history and as a work of almost unbelievable labour" (Stafleu, Linnaeus and the Linnaeans p. 210). The fine engraved plates are by B. Cole and show among others insects, fishes, shells and birds. An uncut copy.//Nissen ZBI, 1939; Anker 210.

Francisco Sanchez de las Brozas, also known as El Brocense, and in Latin as Franciscus Sanctius Brocensis, was a Spanish philologist and humanist. The importance of the ideas of el Brocense in the reform of classical studies in Spain is, in the mid-16th century, comparable to that of Antonio de Nebrija at the beginning of the century. He is mostly remembered for his Minerva sive de causis linguae Latinae (Salamanca: Renaut, 1587), a Latin grammar in four books or sections (study of the parts of speech, the noun, the verb, and the figures) which, subjecting the study of language to reason, is one of the very first epistemological grammars and made him a European celebrity for several generations. While the first grammarians of Humanism (Lorenzo Valla or Antonio de Nebrija) were still writing normative grammars based on the usus scribendi of the ancient authors, el Brocense took ratio (reason) as the cornerstone of his whole grammatical system. He acknowledged no other authority than reason and took to its ultimate consequences the logic of grammatical study. He was determined to make everything fit within rational schemes, and granted in his grammatical interpretation a very important role to ellipsis, an essential tool of his system. In that search for rational explanations, he stepped beyond the limits of the Latin language to go as far as to foreshadow the universal grammar which is implicit in all languages. He is thus a most important milestone towards Port-Royal Grammar and Noam Chomsky's generative grammar. His Minerva was very successful, and had had 15 editions by 1761. The dense scholia by Scioppius appeared in the mid-17th century and would accompany the Minerva until the 19th century. The notes by Perizonius were written at the request of a publisher from Franeker in the Netherlands. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An impartial examination of a pamphlet, intitled, Considerations on several proposals lately made for the better maintenance of the poor: with some serious and occasional animadversions on this important subject. To which are annexed, copies of the Considerations; and of another pamphlet, intitled, Remarks on the laws relating to the poor.

      London: printed in the year, 1752 - 44;vi,26;vii,[1],31,[1]p.,; 8vo. 'Considerations on several proposals . ' is by Charles Gray and dated 1751, and 'Remarks on the laws relating to the poor' is by William Hay; both have separate pagination and register. Half calf, marbled boards. Bound with Higgs 339 (Just Creed's Impartial Examination): "Copies (of the two pamphlets reviewed) not with this tract nor with any I have seen" Professor Foxwell. Goldsmiths' 8747. Kress 5196. "Does not include 'Considerations' or 'Remarks'". Many of the copies located in ESTC are found without the two accompanying pamphlets. A most unusual publication in which Creed issued his answer along with copies of the two pamphlets it considers. In a short preface Creed explains that he has issued Gray's pamphlet and Hay's answer, side by side, after his own comments, to show how unfairly Gray has been treated by Hay in the discussion. At issue was the question of county versus parochial administration of the poor law; Creed favoured the former, Gray the latter. The tracts by Hay and gray appeared in several different editions but they are here issued as an appendix to Creed's pamphlet. Some copies of the Hay and Gray with the paginations as here are also recorded separately. As seen above Higgs records the Creed on its own with the comment "Copies (i.e. of the Gray and Hay) not with this tract (i.e. the Creed) nor with any I have seen," so it does certainly appear that these three pamphlets were also issued separately.

Traduzida da lingoa franceza por Bartholomeo da Silva e Lima. Primeira @[and Segunda@] parte.

      Lisbon, n.pr., n.d. (ca. 1752). - Large woodcut of a ship at sea with an island in the background on title pages to the first and second parts. 8, 8 pp. 4°, disbound in modern folding case with marbled boards and crimson leather lettering-piece with gilt letter on front cover. Faint dampstain in gutter. Overall in good to very good condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of what purports to be a translation of two accounts of exploration, but is more probably an original Portuguese work of popular fiction. The first tells of a French ship that set sail from Nantes in 1752 and, blown off course while rounding the Cape of Good Hope, landed at an unrecorded island at 58 degrees South. It contains vivid descriptions of a ferocious wild animal that lived on the island, whose back was like a serpent, whose front was like a lion without a mane, and which was covered with shells. Attacked by these animals, the shore party fled and landed elsewhere on the island. There they discovered pale humans who wore leaves for clothing; the author describes their reaction to the Frenchmen and their method of hunting wild animals.The second part offers a more detailed description of their appearance and dress, and how they hunt the savage beasts on the other end of the island. The ship eventually made its way to Mozambique.The Portuguese translation of the island's name is @Isla dos Bichos (Creature Island). We suspect this is an imaginary voyage, since the monsters are suspiciously similar to those described in several fantastic accounts of beasts ravaging Turkish dominions: see, for example, @Relaçam de hum formidavel e horrendo monstro silvestre, que foy visto, e morto nas visinhanças de Jerusalem, 1726. It is suggestive that neither Gonçalves Rodrigues or any of the online catalogues which cite this work give an original author, nor do they cite any original title in French.---- Gonçalves Rodrigues, @A tradução em Portugal 868.

Zum einen hat sich vorher, zumindest in Deutschland, kein an einer Universität ausgebildeter Arzt mit der Chirurgie beschäftigt; die Chirurgie war ausschließlich Sache der zur Zunft der Bader und Barbiere gehördenden Handwerkschirurgen. Zum anderen wurden wissenschaftliche Bücher damals nicht in deutscher Sprache geschrieben. An diesen beiden Punkten lässt sich auch die enorme Bedeutung aufzeigen, die Heister für die Chirurgie gehabt hat."

        Letter sur le Progres des Sciences

      Berlin:: chez Etienne de Bourdeaux,. 1752.. A collection of observations & dissertations on the large scientific questions of the day - the Southern lands (Terres Australes), Patagonia, the search for the North West Passage, Africa, pyramids, foreign colleges of science, astronomy, parallax of the moon and its relationship to the earth, observations on medicine, animal experiences, microscopic observations, metaphyics, etc. Maupertuis was the foremost proponent of the Newtonian movement in France and a convinced defender of Newton's ideas about the shape of the earth. The first & longest essay is on the "Terres Australes", the search for the Great Unknown Southern continent, and the voyage of Captain Lozier. The search for the North West Passage (5pp) speaks of the immense value to commerce this would represent. In his "Observations", he refers extensively to Edmund Halley's work. He speaks with admiration about the scientific discoveries made by the Chinese, Indians & Egyptians, along with the art discovered in their countries, and would recommend that a "College" be established to bring these savants together. All together, a wide ranging discussion of the scientific and philosophical questions of the day. The first edition appeared the same year, published in Paris. While this Berlin edition has the same chapter headings as the original, there are fewer pages, so we assume it is either a 2nd edition or a pirated edition. 12mo, (2), 78pp, sml. woodcut on title page, factotum, head- and tail-pieces.
