      London: Printed for Henry Köpp, And Sold by Mr. Newbery, Mr. Owen, and Mr. Paterson, 1753. - 4to. pp. 1 p.l., [10]list of subscribers, [40], 432, [11]appendix, [1]blank, [2]errata & ads. engraved frontis. portrait & 5 folding engraved plans. 2 engraved headpieces (coats of arms). modern quarter calf (2 plans with neatly repaired tears - no loss, light dampstain to 1 plan). First Edition of this biography of military commander John Lindsay, twentieth Earl of Crawford [1702-1749]. In 1735 he received permission to join the imperial army under Prince Eugéne, distinguishing himself in particular at the battle of Claussen. In April of 1738 he travelled to St. Petersburg, having received from the Czarina Anne Iwanowa the command of a regiment of horse with the rank of general, and joined the army of Marshal Munich, then engaged in a war against the Turks. "He soon acquired great proficiency in the mode of warfare practised by the Russians, and excited special admiration by his horsemanship and his prowess with the sword. After the retreat of Munich to Kiow, Crawford left him and joined the imperialists near Belgrade.In April he rejoined the imperialists at Peterwaradin under Marshal Wallis. At the battle of Krotzka, 22 July, 1739, he was so severely wounded by a musket ball in the left thigh, that for some time his life was despaired of, and his health was permanently injured.". (DCB) He later served under the Earl of Stair at Hoschstet, and commanded the brigade of life guards at Dettingen. With the rank of brigadier-general he joined the allied army near Brussels in May of 1744, and fought at the battle of Fontenoy in April of 1745. The following May he was made a major-general, and on the outbreak of the rebellion in Scotland, he was appointed by the government to command six thousand Hessian troops, with whom he secured the towns of Perth and Stirling, and the passes into the lowlands. He subsequently served for a brief period in the Netherlands. [Attributes: First Edition]

See Sale's bibliography, pp.65-76, for a full account.'He had achieved nothing more delicate in his earlier books, and though today we may find the robustness of "Pamela" and the tragic intensity of "Clarissa" more appealing, it was "Sir Charles Grandison" which revealed the possibilities of the novel of domestic manners. It was "Sir Charles Grandison" which was Jane Austen's favourite.' (Butt & Carnall) Miss Austen owned a set of first editions, referred to the novel in her letters, and wrote a dramatic adaptation (as yet unpublished). See Gilson for further details.

        Cartas Edificantes, y curiosas, escritas de las Missiones Estrangeras, por algunos missioneros de la Compañía de Jesus

      1753 - The most important collection of Jesuit writings of their missions around the World. 1753. Madrid. Oficina de la Viuda de Manuel Fernandez. Sixteen volumes in 4to, with 23 folding plates and maps in the final volume (five of them repeated in volumes 2 and 7). Contemporary Spanish vellum, a coherent set but not absolutely uniform, overall in excellent condition. Fine copies for all volumes, folding maps very clean, only scattered foxing here and there. First Spanish edition of the celebrated collection of Jesuit reports from around the world. This collected publication of letters by Jesuit missionaries represents one of the most important sources of sixteenth to eighteenth-century Jesuit knowledge of the world. As well as reflecting Jesuit missionary activity in the East Indies, the Middle and Far East, the Americas and the Pacific, the Cartas provide us with an idea of the evolution of European knowledge on the Jesuit missions. These publications played a key role in the initiation and development of ideas of the Enlightenment, Voltaire and Montesquieu both acknowledged their debt to the work; Leibniz based his knowledge on its texts when he wrote about the Jesuit mission in China. In terms of the breadth of their scope and the diversity of subjects, the "Letters" belong with the other encyclopaedic works of the Enlightenment. The collection of original texts did much to raise European knowledge and consciousness (especially in France) of non-European cultures, and remains one of our main sources for information on the distant world during this period, especially regarding India, China and Japan, the Philippines and the East Indies, Tibet, Laos, and Vietnam. They are very important for America, and are often cited as sources for the history of early discoveries in both North and South America. Includes the works of Fathers Kino, Salvatierra and Picolo in California, descriptions of the Jesuit Reductions of Paraguay and Moxos of Bolivia, Peralta’s comments on Paraguay, Father Niel’s letter on Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, Marest’s missions in Illinois and amongst the Sioux, the Iroquois by Chollenec, and several others, too lengthy to mention. The array of information on the native tribes of South and North America (Guaranis, Chiriquan, Moxos, Hurons Ottawas, Sioux, Iroquois, Ouiapok, amongst others), their costumes, ethnology, manners, religions, and way of life is probably unsurpassed by any other work published by the 18th century. Extremely significant for China as well, derived from the fascination with everything Chinese in the eighteenth century, from its form of government, the peculiarities of its language, its customs and habits, literature and arts. The information that came with the Jesuits had a great deal to do with the beginnings of the European taste for chinoiserie. Even Du Halde was prompted to write his great work on China - without ever leaving Paris. 'The Constitutions of the Society of Jesus, approved in 1558, decreed that letters between "subjects and superiors" should be exchanged on a regular schedule to foster the spirit of union among the Society's members. Only annual letters were required from the missionaries in Asia because the fleets usually arrived in Europe but once each year. These annual reports, as well as many individual letters, usually wound up in Rome Edited selections from the annual letters began to be published at Rome in 1583 for the edification of the general public and for the stimulation of interest in the missions. Over the next one hundred and ninety years (1583 to 1773, the date of the dissolution of the Society) the Jesuits created an international intelligence system that could not be rivalled by any of the world's secular powers. Systematic compilations of the letters from throughout the world became the hallmark of the Jesuit publication program in the eighteenth century. These collections were storehouses of information about Asia that have been ransacked by . [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Mémoires de Gaudence de Luques , prisonnier de l'inquisition.

      n.p., Amsterdam 1753 - Four volumes in two, octavo; with all four titles and half-titles, each volume with an engraved plate as well as an engraved headpiece vignette at start of text; contemporary French mottled calf, head of spines chipped but an attractive set. First illustrated edition of an interesting utopia. The second French edition, with four wonderful engravings and four vignettes by Fessard, and the first illustrated edition in any language. An earlier French translation, by Miltz and de Saint-Germain, was published in 1746, and it was not until 1753 that this edition came out, newly revised and extended by the prominent eighteenth-century man-of-letters, Jean-Baptiste Dupuy-Demportes (d. 1770). Although it pretends to derive from an Italian source, the Memoirs was created by an Englishman. The text was sometimes thought to be the work of Bishop Berkeley, but became correctly attributed to Berington during the nineteenth century. As the title suggests, the work takes the form of a trial transcript, with questioning from various inquisitors and a learned commentary from one Signor Rhedi. The protagonist Gaudentio, hauled in front of the Inquisition, describes Mezzorania in Africa, a city which has been cut off from external contact for over three thousand years. His first impression of the principal city of Phor is of an 'immense Garden', but his more detailed analysis shows a city which owes much to the solar model earlier proposed by Campanella in Città del Sole. Less regulated than many other utopias, the citizens have a system based on the precept 'Thou shalt do no wrong to anyone'. Unusually for the strict utopia, long-term relationships based on love are actively encouraged; indeed, Gaudentio talks at length about his own relationship with a Mezzoranian woman. It is this emotional engagement which leads Rees to see in the Memoirs an unusually novelistic utopia, and thus a work which avoids some of the neatness and simplifications of others in the genre. Ellison, in an article devoted to this 'forgotten utopia' and its authorship, comments that 'Berington can stand upon his own merits, and the early appraisal of the work which saw in it the reflection of a wise, humane, and generous spirit does not have to be seriously discounted.' ('Gaudentio Di Lucca: A Forgotten Utopia', PMLA, 1935). Similarly, Gove happily approves Dunlop classing the work with Gulliver's Travels and Robinson Crusoe. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Carte des Pays connus sous le nom de Canada

      Paris: Boudet, 1753. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand outline color. Image measures 18.75 x 26.25". Sheet measures 21.5 x 29". This rare separate issue map by Robert de Vaugondy depicts the region of North America east of the Great Lakes. Published in 1753, the map dates to a period of conflicting colonial claims, with the French and the British vying over land on the present-day border of the United States and Canada. To the extent that de Vaugondy generated controversy and debate in his drawing of boundaries, the map figures in some ways as a cartographic prefiguration of the French and Indian War, which officially began the following year in 1753. In addition to its political significance, the map also provides remarkable detail about North America in the mid-18th century, with particular attention paid to the various lakes and rivers that define the region's landscape. Hand outline color provides further definition to the coasts and accentuates the centrality of the Great Lakes. An inset in the lower left corner shows Newfoundland, the southwestern corner of which just barely appears at the right margin of the map. In the lower left corner is a beautiful title cartouche that celebrates the landscape thus described, nestling a waterfall and flora amongst elaborate scrollwork. The map is in very good condition with wide margins. Some small tears in margins not affecting the image. Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688-1766) was an important French mapmaker during the 18th century. His "Atlas Universel" was one of the most significant atlases of the period, integrating older sources with more modern surveyed maps in order to convey correct geographical and political information. This map of Poland demonstrates his commitment to detail.

        Nieuwe kaart van het Oostelykste Deel der Weereld

      Amsterdam: Isaak Tirion, 1753. Handcoloured map measuring 360 x 490 mm. (sheet size); mounted, fine. A colourful and attractive eighteenth-century Dutch map of the Old World, Africa, Asia and Australasia. Interestingly, it depicts the Australian continent connected to the landmass of New Guinea - an archaism given that Abel Tasman proved the two lands distinct and separate in 1643, some 110 years prior to the publication of this map. Ironically, a large river flowing from the deep interior of the continent into the Gulf of Carpenteria is named 'Abel Tasman's R.' Also discovered and named by Tasman, Van Diemen's land (being present-day Tasmania) is also notably absent and the entire south-eastern mass of the continent is approximated in dotted lines stretching to the extreme south. As was conventional of the era, present day Western Australia is labelled New Holland, and the landfalls of principal eighteenth-century Dutch voyagers are noted. The Amsterdam based publisher Isaak Tirion (1705-1769) is known to have produced books, charts and maps for the Dutch mercantile elite. Tirion was primarily a cartographic publisher, who issued several lavish atlases as well as smaller geographical guides (literally 'Hand Atlas'), from which this attractive map is derived. During his prolific career Tirion was associated with the Dutch East India Company; in 1757 Willem Udemans, a shipwright and director of the VOC shipyard at Middelburg commissioned Tirion to print a treatise on naval architecture. He also published a Dutch language edition of Commodore Anson's circumnavigation in 1749, a work remarkable for the quality of its maps and charts.

        Relacam do que aconteceo aos Demarcadores Portuguezes, e Castelhanos, no certam das terras da Collonia; opozicam que os Indios ihe fizerao, rompimiento de Guerra que houve, e de como se alhanarao todas as deficultades

      Native opposition to the King´s surveyors. N.d. [1753]. Lisbon. In 8vo. 4 ff. Recent quart calf over boards, spine gilt with lettering piece. Browned throughout, uniformly.First edition. Extremely rare imprint, with first-hand news on the perilous execution of the Treatise of Madrid (1750), between the Kingdoms of Portugal and Spain; the peace treatise exchanged the bulk of Paraguay, home of the Reductions of the Guarani´s, for Colonia del Sacramento, a Portuguese possession in one of the banks of the River Plate. As per the treatise, Colonia would pass to Spain, eager to control the navigability of the River Plate to themselves, whilst Portugal would receive Paraguay. The immense region of Paraguay (between the rivers Ibicui and Uruguay) had several Jesuit missions occupied by thousands of Guarani´s; these last were by no means anxious to leave the product of their work with the natives and the already-self-supporting Missions; the natives (mainly Guarani) weren´t either. As it would be expected, the Indians clung to their farms, homes and land; the conflict arose promptly and sharply, with the Guarani´s and Atalaya natives attacking the Portuguese and Spanish surveyors.Rare, we could only find the copy at the New York Public Library.Not in Sabin.

        Mémoires de Gaudence de Luques , prisonnier de l'inquisition

      Amsterdam: n.p., 1753. Four volumes in two, octavo; with all four titles and half-titles, each volume with an engraved plate as well as an engraved headpiece vignette at start of text; contemporary French mottled calf, head of spines chipped but an attractive set. First illustrated edition of an interesting utopia. The second French edition, with four wonderful engravings and four vignettes by Fessard, and the first illustrated edition in any language. An earlier French translation, by Miltz and de Saint-Germain, was published in 1746, and it was not until 1753 that this edition came out, newly revised and extended by the prominent eighteenth-century man-of-letters, Jean-Baptiste Dupuy-Demportes (d. 1770). Although it pretends to derive from an Italian source, the Memoirs was created by an Englishman. The text was sometimes thought to be the work of Bishop Berkeley, but became correctly attributed to Berington during the nineteenth century. As the title suggests, the work takes the form of a trial transcript, with questioning from various inquisitors and a learned commentary from one Signor Rhedi. The protagonist Gaudentio, hauled in front of the Inquisition, describes Mezzorania in Africa, a city which has been cut off from external contact for over three thousand years. His first impression of the principal city of Phor is of an 'immense Garden', but his more detailed analysis shows a city which owes much to the solar model earlier proposed by Campanella in Città del Sole. Less regulated than many other utopias, the citizens have a system based on the precept 'Thou shalt do no wrong to anyone'. Unusually for the strict utopia, long-term relationships based on love are actively encouraged; indeed, Gaudentio talks at length about his own relationship with a Mezzoranian woman. It is this emotional engagement which leads Rees to see in the Memoirs an unusually novelistic utopia, and thus a work which avoids some of the neatness and simplifications of others in the genre. Ellison, in an article devoted to this 'forgotten utopia' and its authorship, comments that 'Berington can stand upon his own merits, and the early appraisal of the work which saw in it the reflection of a wise, humane, and generous spirit does not have to be seriously discounted.' ('Gaudentio Di Lucca: A Forgotten Utopia', PMLA, 1935). Similarly, Gove happily approves Dunlop classing the work with Gulliver's Travels and Robinson Crusoe.

        LA PERFEZIONE E I DIFETTI DEL CAVALLO di. Direttore e Primo Cavallerizzo dell'Accademia di Pisa. Dedicata alla sacra cesarea Real Maestà Francesco I Duca di Lorena e Granduca di Toscana.

      Stamperia Imperiale,, Firenze, 1753 - in folio, pp. CXLIII, bella leg. p. perg. coeva con tit. mss al d. Dedicat. a Francesco I Granduca di Toscana. Bell’antip. fig. inc. in rame. Front. a due colori. Testo bilingue (francese e italiano). Con 22 tavv. comprendenti 119 figg. Rara ediz. orig. Il vol. costituisce un interess. manuale morfologico-funzionale del cavallo, corredato di numerose incis. in rame che illustrano i principali pregi e i più deprecabili difetti di questo animale. Vengono così descritte le caratteristiche morfologiche ben note agli estimatori del cavallo, quali "cavallo che beve in bianco", "testa zaìna", "testa di luccio", arrivando via via – dai richiami di attinenza strettamente semeiologica – alla descrizione e definizione dei difetti più rimarchevoli che necessariamente devono essere riconosciuti, di modo che "chi vorrà seguitare il mio sentimento scanserà facilmente i lacci, che a tutti quelli che vogliono comprar cavalli ordinariamente si tendono", così come si legge nell’ "avvertimento" dell’autore a inizio d’opera. Le tavv. richiamano con ottimo tratto i particolari descritti nel testo: dai difetti della testa, del collo e dell’incollatura, della linea del dorso, si giunge a diversi tipi di groppa e alle diverse attaccature di coda, per concludere così un’ampia panoramica di tutti i difetti di appiombo, illustrati nelle diverse angolazioni. I difetti del piede e i richiami alle più comuni patologie articolari del cavallo (vesciconi, cappelletto, spavenio, .) concludono quest’opera che, per la dovizia del particolare e l’oggettiva base scientifica, appare estremamente utile e attuale per tutti gli appassionati di questo splendido animale.

The work was first published in 1742 and in the same year was condemned to be burnt by the Parlement de Dijon (some sources give 1741 for the first edition). The work tells the now familiar story of a statue which, when kissed, coms to life, acquires feelings and a soul. No copies traced in Copac; WorldCat locates copies at North Carolina Chapel Hill and Johns Hopkins.
