Fries skriver i sin biografi att Linné hade många gynnare, men att "skulle till Linné själf ställts den frågan, hvilka bland alla dessa lågo hans hjärta närmast, så lider det intet tvifvel, att han ej först skulle nämnt namnen Carl Gustaf Tessin och Abraham Bäck." Linné dedicerade flera av sina verk till Tessin, bl.a. andra upplagan av "Systema naturæ", och deras vänskap var lång och trofast

        INDUSTRY & FRUGALITY PROPOSED AS THE SUREST MEANS TO MAKE US A RICH AND FLOURISHING PEOPLE; AND THE LINEN MANUFACTURE RECOMMENDED AS TENDING TO PROMOTE THESE AMONG US. WITH SOME CURSORY REFLEXIONS ON CHARITY, SO FAR AS IT REGARDS OUR DISTRIBUTIONS TO THE POOR

      Boston. 1753.. 15pp. 19th-century half morocco and marbled boards. Front hinge cracked and loosening, spine worn. First three words of title [Industry & frugality] cropped, but supplied in contemporary manuscript. Page numbers trimmed. Light foxing and toning. Good. In a half morocco box. One of the earliest practical American works on manufactures, this pamphlet promotes the manufacture of American linen. "This seems to be the first non- government publication on linen manufacture written in this country" - Streeter. The Streeter catalog goes on to quote J.L. Bishop's remarks in A HISTORY OF AMERICAN MANUFACTURES, regarding New England's reaction to severe economic pressures at home and from London: "'...a society was formed in Boston, the following year [1749], for promoting industry and frugality, and was probably the forerunner of those associations which, a few years later, became the favorite mode throughout the country, of sustaining resistance to the pressure of ministerial authority. To favor this design, the Assembly purchased the factory, or "Spinning House," in Boston. ... At the anniversary of the society, in 1753, great enthusiasm was exhibited. About 300 young female spinners appeared upon the commons, seated at their wheels, arranged in three rows. ... one ... was carried on the shoulders of men, accompanied by music. ... A memorial presented to the Governor and Court, the same year, by Andrew Oliver and other members of the association, states, that their principal object was the employment of the poor in the manufacture of Linen. ... The Court made a grant of $1500, annually, to aid the society.'" The author encourages gainful factory employment for street urchins, writing, "I have often beheld, with concern, the swarms of children, of both sexes, that are continually strolling and playing about in the streets of our metropolis, cloathed in rags, and brought up in idleness and ignorance; and who must probably come, in a very short time, from picking of sticks to picking of pockets...nothing more is required that lodging a power in some proper persons, to take up such children and (whether their unnatural parents will or not) to place them out to such trades or employments as may in time enable them to acquire an honest subsistence." Benjamin Franklin thought enough of this pamphlet to send a copy to his London friend, the cloth merchant Peter Collinson, who had sent Franklin an Irish pamphlet on the same subject. Collinson's copy survives at the John Carter Brown Library with his inscription on the titlepage verso, which reads in part: "Mr. Franklin of Philadelphia...proposed the same plan to some ingenious publick spirited friends. They again [proposed?] to the legislature to encourage it, the ensueing pamphlet was publish'd at Boston to that end." Rink locates eight copies, and Sabin calls this "A scarce piece." No copy has appeared at auction since the Streeter sale in 1969. EVANS 7027. RINK 3269. KRESS 5275. SABIN 34687. STREETER SALE 4021.

        History of British Birds

      Bewick, Thomas: (1753-1828) History of British Birds. The Figures Engraved on Wood by T. Bewick. Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 containing the description and history of land birds etc. Newcastle: Sol. Hodgson; Edward Walker 1797; 1804, 1804. 2 vols. 8vo. xxx, [ii], 335, [1]; xx, 400 pp. With 233 cuts of birds in the text. Contemporary half-polished calf over boards, spine gilt; an excellent copy with respect to the interior of the book. Unfortunately the board is detached and nearly off. This copy is signed by Henry Oates and presented to him by his Aunt Ann Rayner in Dec. 1797. Ascended from Joseph Henry Oates to Lawrence (Titus) Oates who accompanied Scott on his expedition to the South Pole.First edition, second issue as shown by the presence of the words "Wycliffe, 1791" from the figure of the sea eagle on p. 11 of Volume I. Mottled calf over paper boards with some damage to the leather on volume one and volume two. Occasional spotting but otherwise a nice clean and internally bright copy. This is a very rare set, owing in part to the signature and ascension of the Oates family. Published in two parts, the first deals with land birds, the second with water birds. "The text of the first volume was entirely written by Ralph Beilby; the illustrations are all by Bewick. It is as illustrator and artist that Bewick is best known, and mainly on account of his excellent woodcuts this work passed through numerous editions, a supplement being published by him in 1821. He also issued a number of small atlases of cuts without descriptive matter. The text in all the treatises bearing his name is mostly compilations from earlier writers." Thomas Bewick, 1753-1828, is best remembered for his wood engravings, especially those in his two works of Natural History: A General History of Quadrupeds, and A History of British Birds, Vol. I, Land Birds, Vol. II, Water Birds. The methods of printing used in the eighteenth century led Bewick to develop techniques of engraving that far surpassed the work of his contemporaries. He lowered the surface of the blocks in the areas which he ?wished to appear pale, so as to give the effect of distance?.  These techniques, together with Bewick?s complete mastery of the traditional methods, and his artistic ability, resulted in some exquisite engravings. Masterful engraving indeed, but all too frequently the printers of the day had neither the opportunity, time, or the incentive, to produce fine, sensitive impressions. Today, printing the engravings individually and using a combination of eighteenth and nineteenth century techniques, and twentieth century materials, I was able to produce impressions that I hope go some way towards revealing the full potential of the blocks. As always it was both a privilege and a pleasure to print these wood engravings. Bewick was born in the north of England at Cherryburn, on the south bank of the river Tyne, twelve miles west of Newcastle upon Tyne. At the age of fourteen he was apprenticed to Ralph Beilby, a general engraver in Newcastle. Ten years later he formed a partnership with Beilby. Wood engraving was only a small part of the business and the majority of the work involved engraving inscriptions and decorations on a wide variety of objects such as guns, dog collars, harness, clock faces, rings, cutlery and the engraving of banknotes, billheads and even bookbinders' tools and letters. Bewick is best known for his wood engravings in his two works of natural history: A General History of Quadrupeds and A History of British Birds, Vol.1 Land Birds, Vol. 2 Water Birds. Bewick started to engrave the illustrations for the Quadrupeds in 1785, and in his autobiographical Memoir 1 recounts: 'The greater part of these Wood cuts were drawn & engraved at nights, after the days work of the shop was over. The book was very well received, and Bewick was encouraged to work on a history of birds.  © David Esslemont 1997. These books were purchased at a Dominic Winter Auction and further family provenance is as follows from a Oates historian. "Joseph Oates, whose name is inscribed in the volume, was the great-grandfather of Captain Oates. He was born in 1743 and died in 1824. His wife was Elizabeth Rayner, which accounts for the other signature in the book. Joseph Oates and Elizabeth Rayner had six children and the youngest, Edward (1792-1865) married Susan Grace in 1836. One of their five children was William Oates (1841-1896), the father of Captain Oates. His grandparents' names were included in the full name of Captain Oates - i.e. Lawrence Edward Grace Oates. There is a strong connection with travel and exploration throughout the Oates ancestors." There is no connection to be found that these books were taken on the expedition or recovered from the expedition, if they were, they would be worth considerably more than our price. It is safe, however to say that it was a treasured set by grandparents and parents of Oates and that both the great grandfather and father had interest in birds and collected such upon their travels around the world. From the age of 20 until his death at 32, Oates was mostly away in service or in the Antarctic. He spent 9 months at his ancestral home recovering from a leg wound he received in the Boer War in 1901.

        Dissertation sur le Principe de la Moindre Action avec l'Examen des Objections de M. le Prof. Koenig faites contre ce Principe [with facing title-page in Latin: Dissertatio de Principio Minimae Actionis...]

      Both titles with the woodcut vignette of the Prussian eagle. Latin & French texts on facing pages. 8 p.l., 223 pp. 8vo, cont. mottled sheep (minor rubbing, head of spine a trifle chipped), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Berlin: Michaelis, 1753. First edition of one of the very rarest of Euler's books; this copy, printed on large paper, bears the stamp on the title-page of Charles Marie de la Condamine (1701-74), the great mathematician and natural historian. La Condamine was Maupertuis' closest friend, to whom he bequeathed all his papers. The principle of least action, originally formulated by Maupertuis in 1744, has proven to be one of the greatest and most fertile generalizations in the history of science. The first scientist to contradict Maupertuis was Johann Samuel König, who published some critical remarks in March 1751 and, in fact, claimed priority. This "resulted in perhaps the ugliest of all the famous scientific disputes. Its principal figures were Koenig, Maupertuis, Euler, Frederick II, and Voltaire; and as is well known, it left an unseemly stain on Euler's otherwise untarnished escutcheon."-D.S.B., VII, pp. 442-43. In the course of the dispute, Euler accused Koenig of forging a Leibniz letter. The first part of the text (pages 1-95) contains Euler's explanation of his concept of the theory of least action, in support of Maupertuis. Pages 98-195 provide Euler's careful examination of -- but really a strong attack on -- Koenig's March 1751 article. Pages 197-223 contain further notes by Euler on the controversy. The principle of least action "was clarified and underwent important developments at the hands of Hamilton and Jacobi in the 19th century...[It] has come to play a fundamentally important part in twentieth-century Physics...the discovery of its atomicity is the basis of the Quantum Theory."-Wolf, A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy in the Eighteenth Century, p. 69. Fine copy, printed on large paper. The lavish production of this work -- given Prussia's notorious austerity -- along with the fine paper and Prussian Eagles with Frederick's initials on both titles indicate that the publication was financed by him. Old stamp of a religious house and modern stamp of R.D.E. Gelin on verso of title. ❧ For Euler's role, see D.S.B., IV, p. 471. Terrall, The Man Who Flattened the Earth. Maupertuis and the Sciences in the Enlightenment, pp. 270-309. .

        A Chart of North and South America including the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans with the nearest coasts of Europe, Africa and Asia

      London: Thomas Jefferys, 19 Feb 1753. Folio (24 x 16 1/2 inches). Engraved map of the Americas, the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans on 6 double- page copper engraved sheets, with original outline colour (each sheet 24 x 30 1/4 inches). (Bound without the letterpress colour key slip, 1" square repaired area in lower right corner of the image area of the first map sheet). Contemporary marbled-paper over pasteboard, early manuscript title lettering in ink to backstrip, modern morocco-backed cloth box, green morocco title labels to spine and upper cover. A very fine copy of this rare and fascinating atlas by an Irish cartographer of great ability: Braddock Mead (who worked under the name John Green) was one of the most gifted mapmakers working in London in the first half of the 18th-century. This atlas (essentially an unassembled six sheet wall map centered on the Americas] accurately documents European exploration in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans up to the mid-eighteenth century. The six sheets cover an area from 185 degrees west to 20 degrees east, and from 60 degrees south to 82 degrees north, and would form a map of about 60 x 48 inches if joined. The map records the tracks of all the latest voyages to the Arctic and the Bering Straits, as well as the Dutch voyages to the South Pacific. Overall, the map offers a clear record of the discoveries that had been made in the area as of 1753, just before an explosion of Western activity in the Pacific and the start of the search, in earnest, for the Northwest Passage. Each of the six double-page sheets includes tables recording distances and positions, the voyages of various explorers, and additional miscellaneous notes (many referring to other maps and mapmakers). Each map is individually titled along upper margin as follows: Sheet I: Chart containing part of the Icy Sea with the adjacent Coast of Asia and America Sheet 2: Chart comprising Greenland with the Countries and Islands about Baffin's and Hudson's Bays Sheet 3: Chart containing the Coasts of California, New Albion, and Russian Discoveries to the North; with the Peninsula of Kamchatka, in Asia, opposite thereto; and Islands, dispersed over the Pacific Ocean, to the North of the Line Sheet 4: Chart of the Atlantic Ocean, with the British, French, & Spanish Settlements in North America, and the West Indies Sheet 5: Chart containing the greater part of the South Sea to the South of the Line, with the Islands dispersed thro' the same Sheet 6: Chart of South America, comprehending the West Indies, with the Adjacent Islands, in the Southern Ocean, and the South Sea Jefferys, the leading British mapmaker of the mid-eighteenth century, became geographer to the Prince of Wales in 1746 and geographer to the King in 1760. He published a remarkable number of maps and charts, many of the North American continent. "The genius behind Jefferys in his shop was a brilliant man who at this time went by the alias of John Green. He made a great six-sheet map of North and South America (1753), concerning which he said, 'The English charts of America being for the general very inaccurate, I came to a resolution to publish some new ones for the use of British navigators.' In addition to his extensive cartographic abilities, Green's personal history also stands out from amongst the biographies of other 18th-century British map makers. John Green was born Braddock Mead in Ireland before 1688, married in Dublin in 1715 and around 1717 moved to London. He was imprisoned in 1728 for trying to defraud an Irish heiress. He also worked with Chambers on his Universal Dictionary. After he got out of gaol, he took the name of Green, and subsequently worked for Cave, Astley, and Jefferys. Mead 'had a number of marked characteristics as a cartographer ... One was his ability to collect, to analyze the value of, and to use a wide variety of sources; these he acknowledged scrupulously on the maps he designed and even more fully in accompanying remarks. Another outstanding characteristic was his intelligent compilation and careful evaluation of reports on latitudes and longitudes used in the construction of his maps, which he also entered in tables on the face of the maps ... Mead's contributions to cartography stand out ... At a time when the quality and the ethics of map production were at a low ebb in England, he vigorously urged and practiced the highest standards; in the making of maps and navigational charts he was in advance of his time. For this he deserves due credit." (Cumming). Complete suites of the six maps are rare. In 1991, the Dupont set sold for $12,000 hammer; in 2007, the Frank Streeter set sold for $60,000. A separately-issued pamphlet on the map is seldom found together with the map, and is not included with this set. Lada-Mocarski quotes an 1899 Henry Stevens catalogue concerning the map: "We have never before met with the Remarks and Chart together. The latter is very rarely complete, as the 6 charts has a complete border and title so that they were evidently sold separately as required." Crone, "John Green. Notes on a neglected Eighteenth Century Geographer and Cartographer," Imago Mundi, VI (1950) p. 89-91; Crone, "Further Notes on Braddock Mead, alias John Green..."

        fl.) Nytt förråd af äldre och nyare handlingar rörande nordiska historien.

Sidorna 253-4 och 255-6 med äldre papperslagning i marginalen. Enkelt hkbd från mitten av 1800-talet. Warmholtz 8888. Allt som utkom, och med de två mycket sällsynta arken till det femte häftet (slutar med kustoden "Anno"), vilka aldrig utgavs! Faksimilplanschen är graverad av J. Gillberg. Utgivare var Bengt Bergius, David Ståhl och Jöns Lind, vilka bildade ett informellt historiskt sällskap. P.g.a. oenighet inom sällskapet avbröts dock arbetet i förtid och Bergius forsatte på egen hand genom "Små-saker til nöje och tidsfördrif" och "Allahanda" sin utgivning av historiska dokument. Intressant urkundsamling med aktstycken från 1500- och 1600-talen med lärda och skarpsinniga inledningar (Bring). Det som utkom av femte stycket innehåller fortsättningen från fjärde stycket av: "Laurentii Petri Gothi beskrifning om k. Eric XIV:des kröning i Upsala, 1561."

III, 177. - Der Pfarrer von Gottmannshofen gibt eine ausführliche Beschreibung der Merkmale, an denen "heimlich Besessene" erkannt werden können, und führt die Verwirrung der Welt auf die baldige Ankunft des Antichristen zurück, welcher "in disem tausend siben hundert, und zwey und fünffzigsten Jahr, entweders schon würcklich gebohren worden seye, oder noch werde gebohren werden" (S. 236). - Johann Christoph Beer (1691 Wien - 1760 Gottmannshofen/Schwaben), nicht zu verwechseln mit dem gleichnamigen Verfasser geographisch-historischer Schriften aus Nürnberg, fand als volkstümlicher Prediger großen Anklang. Seine Schriften erschienen zwar meist in mehreren Auflagen, heute jedoch sind sie von großer Seltenheit. - Etwas gebräunt. Schönes Exemplar!
