        History of the Portuguese, During the Reign of Emmanuel: Containing All their Discoveries, from the Coast of Africk to the farthest Parts of China; their Battles by Sea and Land, their Sieges, and other memorable Exploits: With a Description

      London: A. Millar, 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..... First Edition in English. Leather. Good. 5¼" by 8¼".

      Venetiis Ex Typographia Balleoniana 1752 - 8vo, 160 x 96 mms., pp. xxiii [xxiv engraving], 424, title-page with engraved vignette, 7 engraved plates as part of register, on pages xxiv, 82, 138, 198, 252, 292, and 298, beautifully bound in full contemporary red morocco, with elaborately decorated gilt covers, spine gilt in compartments to a fan motif, all edges gilt; some slight wear to extremities, particularlry top of spine, but generally a fine copy. There are three provenance sources: an inscription in Italian on the recto of the front free end-paper which seems to be that of a young girl, with the autograph "Teresa Tergelli" in an 18th century hand. On the verso is the inscription "Mary H Pickersgill-Cunliffe/ from Mother/ July 1988". This is probably the daughter or granddaughter of the MP (for six weeks) John Cunliffe Pickersgill (1819 - 1867) and his wife Helen Hutton. Finally, on the rear paste-down end-paper is the pencil notation, "Sotheby 30 July 1957 [lot] 439/ ex libris Hugh Gledhill St Johns Oxford." Gledhill's books were sold at Sotheby's after his death. The fine engravings are by B. Falconi. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le parfait négociant, ou instruction générale pour ce qui regarde le commerce... (&:) SAVARY des Bruslons, Jacques (1657-1716). - Dictionnaire universel de commerce... 6me édition, exactement revûe, corrigée, et considérablement augmentée... -

      Genève, Cramer & Philibert, 1752-1750.2 voll. in 1 + 4 voll. In-folio. Uniformi legature coeve in pergamena rigida, titolo impr. in oro sui dorsi. I: Con una tav. f.t. (20), 529 pp.; (24), 392 (recte 394) pp. II: (8), XLIV pp., 1310 col.; (4) pp., 1636 col.; (4) pp., 1406 col.; (4) pp., 1228 col., 31, (61) pp.; piccoli forellini di tarlo nel dorso di un volume e nei margini dei primi fogli di un altro; occasionali ingialliture ed alcuni fogli un po' arrossati; buon esemplare in solide legature coeve. Jacques Savary fu uno dei maggiori economisti francesi del '600. Per le sue capacità venne incaricato da Colbert di partecipare alla stesura di un nuovo codice commerciale, il noto "Codice Savary" (1673). La sua opera più famosa, ?Le parfait négociant?, apparve nel 1675. Anche il figlio Jacques Savary des Bruslons fu un economista assai apprezzato; lasciò una gran quantità di appunti per il ?Dictionnaire universel de commerce?, raccolti dal fratello Philemon-Louis Savary (1654-1727) e pubblicati postumi (1723). Il dizionario, il primo nel suo genere, riguarda il sistema bancario, l?industria, le assicurazioni, il diritto, la contabilità, la pesca, la navigazione, il trasporto, la storia ecc. Le due opere ebbero un notevole successo e vennero più volte pubblicate separatamente, ma in questa stimata edizione, rivista, corretta e notevolmente aumentata, dovrebbero trovarsi unite. Cf. Kress 5232 e Einaudi 5097. Goldsmiths? 8515 e 8476. Two classics on commerce by the foremost French economists of the 17th century, father and son, first published in 1675 and 1723 respectively. They were frequently reprinted separately, but in this edition they should be together. Some light toning of the paper; pin wormholes in spine of two vols. and first blank margins of another vol.; generally a good set, uniformly bound in contemp. vellum with gilt lettering on spines.

        Historia Plantarum Rariorum... Beschreibung Seltener Pflanzen ihrer fürtrefflichkeit wegen von neuem herausgegeben durch Johann Daniel Meyer.

      Nürnberg, gedruckt bey Andreas Bieling, 1752. Folio (495 x 350mm). pp. (6), 24, with 50 colour-printed mezzotint plates finished by hand. Contemporary half calf, spine in 7 compartments with floral gilt ornaments and red gilt lettered label, speckled boards. Very scarce German edition of Martyn's famous botanical work first published London 1728. The plates were re-engraved by Meyer but closely copied from the originals of Jacob van Huysum. The text is in Latin and German. The 1728 edition is the first botanical book illustrated with colour-printed plates. It is devoted to new species growing at the Chelsea Physic Garden and the Cambidge Botanic Garden, some of which had been brought from the Caribbean region by Dr. William Houston. Dunthorne calls the book 'a rather amazing item', because its plates are printed in colour in an early form of mezzotint. 'The work is of particular interest as it contains some of the earliest examples of colour-printing from a single metal plate... Many of the prints in the 'Historia' are printed in green but some are printed in two or more colours from a single plate at one impression. All were afterwards touched by hand' (Henrey II, p. 53). Most of the plates are after Jacob van Huysum, a flower painter born at Amsterdam. He worked in England from about 1721 and was the brother of the famous Dutch flower painter Jan van Huysum. The plates depict plants from Cape of Good Hope (a few Pelargosiums and a Mesem), North America and the West Indies. The titlepage shorter but from this copy. Nissen BBI 1290; Stafleu & Cowan 5563.

      Paris, Jorry et al., 1752-1758.. 8vo in 4s, pp. [ii] (series title dated 1763), xxii, [ii], 244, 88; 48 (the pagination of the six supplements is continuous); text printed within woodcut border; partly uncut, finely bound in late nineteenth century crushed blue morocco, spine in compartments, gilt-lettering directly to spine, tooled with theatrical mask to spine and to all four corners of upper and lower board, upper edge gilt, gilt dentelles; a fine copy. First edition, very rare with all six supplements present, of this detailed account of French theatre up to the middle of the eighteenth century. The supplements, which were published separately over the course of six years, are very rarely present. Here they are collected with a general title page, dated 1763, published 'at the expense of the author', and bound in a fine 'theatrical' binding. The Tablettes dramatiques are a most valuable source for the history of French theatre, covering first the history of the theatre, the history of the foundation of specific theatres, an inventory of plays performed or printed for the period 1552 to 1752, with critical commentary, and finally a biographical dictionary of authors and actors. The supplements generally follow the same format and give information on new plays, a performance calendar for the period in question, details of ballets, and biographical information on new emerging actors. A fascinating overview of French or more specifically Parisian theatre history, documenting the transition from medieval theatre to the highly organised and politicised drama up to the middle of the eighteenth century. The chevalier de Mouhy (1701-84), was a playwright and prolific author on the theatre, he also published an Histoire du theatre français depuit son origine jusqu'en 1780. Grand-Carteret (Almanachs Français) 192; Dufour, Bibliographie de Paris, p. 395; Soleinne, IV, 283; OCLC locates a number of copies of the main work, but only Dutch Royal Library, Lyon and Bibliotheque Nationale for the full complement of supplements.

Med Gustaf Bernströms guldpräglade pärmexlibris och hans blyertsnotering "coll. cat.".. Klemming Sveriges dramatiska litteratur s. 88. "Herde-spel" har en stark rojalistisk tendens, vilket användes emot Dalin 1756 i samband med att han avlägsnades från hovet och förbjöds att undervisa kronprinsen och träffa kungafamiljen och efter deras misslyckade statskupp

      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.

        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.

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.
