        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.

        Relação que trata de como em cincoenta e oito gráos do Sul foy descuberta huma ilha por huma náo franceza, a qual obrigada de hum temporal, que lhe sobreveyo, no Cabo da Boa Esperança, foy a parar na dita Ilha. Traduzida da lingoa franceza por Bartholomeo da Silva e Lima. Primeira @[and Segunda@] parte.

      Lisbon,, 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."

        An Essay towards a Natural History of the Herring.

      Printed for T.

Bartley with a note of the price (5s), armorial bookplate of Alexander David Seton of Mounie Castle, with pencil Mounie shelfmark inside front cover, good With the half-title, 6 final contents leaves and a final advertisement leaf (Proposals for Printing by Subscription Dodd’s Natural History of Esculent Fish), but without the plate, as often (it is too large for the volume), and clearly never bound in here. An important study of the herring and the herring industry: with the aim of promoting the latter. The fish is anatomised, fisheries detailed, curing described, and the economic advantages considered. Also there are chapters on the herring as food, with recipies, and a long chapter on the medicinal uses, again with recipes. This is the first publication of Dodd (1720/21-1805), surgeon and latterly actor in a turbulent career. Esculent Fishes never appeared. Although well represented in economic bibliography, the work is curiously absent from medical and gastronomic bibliography.The Mounie provenance strongly suggests that this copy once belonged to James Anderson, so particularly anent his interests as it is.

        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.

He was the first to lay down safe rules regarding the use of forceps, and himself introduced the steel-lock, the curved, and the double forceps" (Garrison/M.). - Binding slightly rubbed, but decorative; back hinge beginning to split at upper spine-end.

      Halle. 1741-1752. - Nine volumes in all. 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) ZWÖLTE 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. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 741/234, 740/314. BAGINSKY GERMAN

Afin de situer l'enjeu de ces éditions, il est nécessaire de revenir un peu en arrière dans l'histoire : La bulle papale Unigenitus (1713) reprend et perfectionne les différentes bulles contre "l'hérésie Janséniste" en condamnant particulièrement les thèses de Quesnel et d'Arnauld, elle donnera lieu à une dispute religieuse en France qui s'aggravera peu à peu en crise politique majeure face aux billets de confession et aux refus des sacrements à ceux qui s'opposaient à la bulle. Non seulement le clergé français sera divisé, mais le Parlement lui-même se mettra en grève et s'opposera au roi dans cette affaire, qui avait ordonné l'application de la bulle. La confrontation entre le parlement et le roi durera plus de 20 ans. La bulle Unigenitus redonna une vigueur nouvelle à un Jansénisme moribond, provoquant ainsi l'effet contraire. 117 162 53 46 69pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Veduta della Gran Curia Innocenziana

      Paris 1752 - Hind 23 (2nd State, First Paris Edition)John Wilton Ely 176The watermarks that are present are numbers 88 and 89 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1180 and are dated between 1800 to 1809From the important series "Veduta de Roma"Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Batti [Attributes: First Edition]

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.
