        Title: Missale Monasticum Pauli V. Pontificis Max. Auctoritate Recognitum, Pro omnibus sub Regula SS. Patris Benedicti Militantibus; In Quo Missae Sanctorum ad normam novi Kalendarii Auctoritate Apostolica approbati ordinate propriis locis disponuntur - Text in Latin - [Monastic Missal of Pope Paul V, Highest Pontiff. Acknowledged authority, for all under the rule of Father Benedict Militantibus; The Holy Mass according the the New Calendar, Approved by the Apostolic Authority of the Saints]

      Venice: Ex Typographia Balleoniana, 1754. Qto. xxxix, 492 pages, in black and red print, featuring 3 fine full page allegorical woodcut engravings, small woodcut engraved illustrated monograms at the start of each subject, music notes for hymns and incantations. Also with a scant few nineteenth century leafs for special ceremonies, skilfully tipped-in. All text is in Latin. Bound together with "Commune Sanctorum" xcvii [an additional 97 pages], printed in 1748; and an undated contemporary work titled "Missae Sanctorum Propriae Archi-Dioecesis Salisburgensis, et Monasterii Admontensis" being yet an additional 16 pages. Full leather binding, gilt tooled motifs front and rear boards, gilt Christogram 'IHS' to front, gilt monogram 'MARIA' to rear, 7 raised bands and further gilt tooling to spine, complete with two working clasps with a carved motif mounted on two leather bands. Volume measures approximately 24 x 32,5 x 6 cm. A splendidly ornate and solid antique leather binding. The present volume boasts a sound and visually pleasing mid-eighteenth century binding, with hole and pin type clasps which at the time remained in use virtually only for papal books and Bibles made in Germany. The Latin text which it has protected for well over two hundred years now, reveals both enlightened and dark religious teachings imposed on the general population. By its title, the secondary 16 page document bound herein suggests that this volume was used by an eighteenth century priest of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Salzburg, in Austria, and notably connected to the ancient Benedictine Abbey at Admont. It is titled, "Missae Sanctorum Propriae Archi-Dioecesis Salisburgensis, et Monasterii Admontensis" [Holy Mass of the Archdiocese of Salzburg, and the Monastery of Admont.] A primary source work of eighteenth century liturgy, including orations, incantations, prayers, fastidious ceremonies, and more, this volume is an original Latin missal, a work produced by the Roman Catholic Church and being the authoritative book of prayers and rites to be used and strictly followed in by the priests leading Mass. Covering an entire year, several special ceremonies and rituals observed are outlined, in celebrating the Holy birth, the resurrection, and so forth. We find in these pages some most fascinating examples, such as the "Missae Pro Defunctus" [Mass for the Deceased], and "Missa Contra Paganos" [Mass Against the Pagans]. The Roman Catholic Church anti-pagan masses have been used historically to rally crusades, for example in the case of Pope Clement V, who on 4 April 1312, promulgated a crusade against the Venetians and the Turks. Anti-Turkism was even more overt in 1453-54, particularly in the form of liturgical masses against Turks, called "Missa Contra Turcos," and again in 1456 by Pope Calixtus III. The Benedictine monastery Admont Abbey contains the largest monastic library in the world, as well as a long-established scientific collection. It is the oldest remaining monastery in Styria, located in the town of Admont, and widely known for its Baroque architecture, art, and manuscripts. Dedicated to Saint Blaise, Admont Abbey was founded in 1074 by Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg, it was in the 17th and 18th centuries, contemporary to the present volume, that the abbey reached a high point of artistic productivity, with the works of the world-famous ecclesiastical embroiderer Brother Benno Haan and the sculptor Joseph Stammel. Approximately one hundred years after this volume was printed and bound, in April 1865, a disastrous fire destroyed almost the entire monastery. While the monastic archives burned, the library was mostly salvaged. Reconstruction began the following year but was still not complete by 1890. The library hall at Admont Abbey was built in 1776 and is the largest monastery library in the world, containing approximately one third of the monastery's entire holdings of some 200,000 volumes. The abbey possesses over 1,400 manuscripts, the oldest of which, from St. Peter's Abbey in Salzburg, were the gift of the founder, Archbishop Gebhard, and accompanied the first monks to settle here, as well as over 900 incunabulae. Pope Paul V (17 September 1550 - 28 January 1621), born Camillo Borghese, was Pope from 16 May 1605 to his death in 1621. He is best remembered today as the Pope who, through the Roman Inquisition, persecuted Galileo Galilei for his support of Copernicus' theories of heliocentrism. The Christogram IHS, seen on the front of the volume, is a monogram or combination of letters that forms an abbreviation for the name of Jesus Christ, traditionally used as a Christian symbol. As in the case of Chrismon, the term Christogram comes from the Latin phrase "Christus Monogramma", meaning "monogram of Christ". In the Latin-speaking Christianity of medieval Western Europe (and so among Catholics and many Protestants today), the most common Christogram became "IHS" or "IHC", denoting the first three letters of the Greek name of Jesus, iota-eta-sigma. History of Book Clasps The use of book clasps appears to be as old as the codex itself. In its earliest form, which was Coptic bindings, the book clasp consisted of a strap and bone system. Book clasps consisting of a plaited thong with loops to fit over bone or metal pegs seems to have been used in England at least as early as the 12th century. English book binders of the 14th century began using two straps instead of just one, something which had been done earlier and more often on the Continent of Europe. The hole and pin type was more or less abandoned early in the 14th century and replaced by clasps and catches attached to the fore edge. Later, the metal part of the clasp was the full thickness of the book and was sometimes attached to the board by means of a metal hinge. In bindings of the 15th and 16th centuries, and probably earlier, the location of the book clasps is a reasonably accurate indication of the country of origin. The use of metal clasps began to decline early in the 16th century, however brass clasps were still used for some books bound with wooden boards. Silver clasps and corner pieces were often used on small Bibles and other devotional works as late as the late 17th and early 18th centuries. For certain German bindings, however, mainly Bibles and pontifical volumes, clasps were used continuously until the end of the 18th century.

        A Sett [sic] of Anatomical Tables, with Explanations, and an Abridgement, of the Practice of Midwifery, with a View to Illustrate a Treatise on that Subject, and a Collection of Cases.

      London: [D. Wilson], 1754. <p>First edition, a very fine copy, of Smellie’s great obstetrical atlas, “which is very rare and is said to have been issued in only 100 copies” (Heirs of Hippocrates). “The plates in this classic of obstetrical illustration are far superior to any that had appeared before. They give everywhere a masterly representation, true to nature, of the relations of the parts of mother and child, and have perhaps contributed more to spreading correct ideas of labor than all the books that have ever been written on the subject” (Grolier Medicine). “Whcn Smellie’s Theory and Practice of Midwifery was published, Jan van Rymsdyk had already completed a series of twenty-six anatomical illustrations for use in Smellie’s obstetrical lectures, and in an advertisement published at the end of the work, Smellie announced his intention to publish these drawings in an atlas to be paid for by subscription. The atlas was published two years later, with the number of plates increased to thirty-nine, eleven of which had been supplied by Pieter Camper, professor of medicine at Francker in the Netherlands. Smellie was the leading forceps practitioner in London, and several of the plates illustrate the use of this instrument in various presentations of the fetus. These engravings are the first accurate anatomical illustrations of the fetus in utero. Three of the plates are devoted to obstetric instruments, with plate XXXVII illustrating the Smellie forceps, a short, straight instrument with leather-covered blades, which was widely used for many years” (Norman).</p> <p>&#10087; Grolier, <em>One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine</em> 43b; Norman 1955; <em>Heirs of Hippocrates</em> 522.</p> <p>“Smellie’s (1697-1763) Sett [sic] of Anatomical Tables … was designed to illustrate as accurately as possible the female pelvis and uterus. Smellie, the “master of British Midwifery,” is stated to have been the foremost obstetrician of the eighteenth century, and made a number of contributions to the field. In the Preface, Smellie gave his rationale for this work. “As in a long course of teaching and practice in Midwifery, I hope I may without vanity say, that I have done something towards reducing that Art, into a more simple and mechanical method than has hitherto been done. I have attempted to explain the same in my Treatise of the Theory and Practice of Midwifery …” He continued, that he was induced to prepare this volume as, “… most of the representations hitherto given … were in many respects deficient.” Smellie assured the reader, “the greatest part of the figures were taken from Subjects prepared on purpose, to show everything that might conduce to the improvement of the young Practitioner …”</p> <p>“Smellie described more accurately than any previous writer the mechanical relations of the fetal head to that of the mother’s pelvis during parturition, i.e. the mechanism of labor. He also stressed the importance of precise pelvic measurements, and was the first to measure the internal or diagonal conjugate. Importantly for the <em>accoucher</em>, he laid down rules regarding the safe use of obstetrical forceps which remain valid today. He introduced the steel “English” lock on the forceps and, coincidentally with André Levret (1703-1780) of Paris, added the pelvic curve. He apparently was the first to use forceps to rotate the fetal head, and to use forceps on the aftercoming head of a breech delivery. He also invented several important obstetrical instruments.</p> <p>“The anatomical plates of this elephant folio, and classic of illustrated obstetrics, are far superior to any that had appeared previously, and present masterly representations of the relations of the parts of the mother and child at several stages of gestation. The <em>Sett of Anatomical Tables…, </em>(the <em>Sett </em>of which was a misprint, corrected in later editions) may have achieved more in the spread of correct ideas of labor and parturition than all of the works previously written on the subject. Undoubtedly, it also played an important role in Smellie’s rise to fame. Of the 39 plates, 25 or 26 are by the Dutch artist and comparative anatomist Johannes van Riemsdijk (also Jan van Riemsdyk, van Rymsdyk, fl. 1750-1788). In fact, this was the first of the three great eighteenth century obstetric folios illustrated by van Riemsdijk.</p> <p>“Smellie’s decision to produce this atlas from anatomic dissections could not have been undertaken lightly, and the expense must have been great. The artist later created the illustrations for Charles Nicholas Jenty’s (fl. 1720-1770) <em>Uteri praegnantis un ad partum</em> (1757), William Hunter’s (1718-1783) <em>Gravid Uterus</em> (1774), as well as for a quarto, of Thomas Denman (1733-1815). Eleven of the plates were by Pieter Camper (1722-1789), one of his students from Holland and anatomist at Franeker. Smellie himself is believed to have drawn the illustrations for two plates (37 and 39). All were beautifully engraved by Charles Grignon (1714-1810), a French artist who lived in London. Among the plates is the first illustration of abnormal presentations. Plate VIII illustrates the fetus at 6 or 7 months of gestation, with its placenta (K) and surrounding amniotic membranes (L), within the uterine wall (A) and bones of the pelvis (B, C, D). In Plate X, Smellie depicts near-term twins, with their individual placentas (K) and membranes (L), within the uterus (A, I) and the bones of the pelvis (B, C, D).</p> <p>“Smellie was born in Lanarkshire, Scotland. Following an apprenticeship with a local apothecary-physician, naval service, and general practice, he studied for a year in Paris. In 1741, he moved to London where he taught obstetrics in his home. To teach obstetrics on a scientific basis, Smellie used a mannequin fabricated from pelvic and fetal bones covered with leather. Practicing among the poor, Smellie became a popular teacher. In his Preface to “A Treatise …” [he states that] during one decade, he gave over 280 courses of midwifery “… for the instruction of more than 900 pupils, exclusive of female students: and in that series of courses, 1150 poor women have been delivered in presence of those who attended me; and supported during their lying-in, by the stated collection of my pupils: over and above those difficult cases to which we were often called by midwives, for the relief of the indigent. These considerations, together with that of my own private practice, which hath been pretty extensive, will, I hope, screen me from the imputation of arrogance, with regard to the task I have undertaken; and I flatter myself, that the Performance will not be unserviceable to mankind” (Smellie, <em>Treatise</em>, pp. v-vi). Among his pupils was the celebrated William Hunter” (Longo & Reynolds, pp. 138-140).</p> <p>“Smellie’s library, preserved at Lanark, Scotland, includes his own copy of the <em>Sett of anatomical tables, </em>the title-leaf of which displays his manuscript correction of the misspelled “sett.” The original drawings for this work were acquired by Smellie’s most famous pupil, William Hunter, and are preserved in the Hunterian Collections at the University of Glasgow Library” (Norman).</p> <p>Little is known about the illustrator Jan van Rymsdyk. He was probably born in the Netherlands between 1700 and 1730, and he lived and worked in England between 1745 and 1780. In 1778, with his son Andreas, he published at London a series of plates from antiquities and curiosities in the British Museum, <em>Museum Britannicum: being an exhibition of a great variety of antiquities and natural curiosities, belonging to that noble and magnificent cabinet, the British Museum : illustrated with curious prints, engraved after the original designs, from nature, other objects : and with distinct explanations of each figure</em>. In this book van Rymsdyk tells us something about his approach to his work: “there are three different ways of imitating an Object; the first is to dispose Nature at a tolerable Distance, suppose that of Fifteen Feet, where all the minutiae is lost, and only the Form, and grand Masses are to be seen; this Distance is in general approved of large Works, which are to be seen on high, as the Pictures on the Veiling at White-Hall, British Museum etc. The second or medium Distance, is where the small parts are more visible, as at Five Feet, or thereabouts; Painters never, or seldom exceed this, but the third is, where the Different Substances, and every minute Part is discovered by being brought so near the Eye. This Distance I was obliged to make use of, for to represent Nature in its greatest Beauty; the other two distances are what I would call only representing the Effect of Nature, as she appears at the Distance; or the Distance for an Artist to get a good deal of Money, and use much Art, but shew [show] little of Nature.”</p> <p>In the conclusion to his <em>Museum Britannicum</em> van Rymsdyk writes that he has taken “a dislike to those Anatomical Studies etc. in which I was employed.” He also felt he had been ill-treated by William Hunter, whom he accused of having discouraged him from becoming a “real” painter. There is no mention of van Rymsdyk in William Hunter’s <em>Anatomy of the Human Gravid Uterus</em>. The preface merely refers to “the ingenious artist who made the drawings and engravings”. Nevertheless van Rymsdyk remains one of the greatest of all medical illustrators.</p> <p> </p> <p>Garrison-Morton 6154.1; Grolier Medicine 43B; Heirs of Hippocrates 522; NLM/Blake, p.420; Norman 1955; Russell 753 (recording more than 14 editions); Waller 9012.

      8 Bll., 672 S., mit gest. Frontispiz u. Titelkupfer, 1 Taf., 79 S., Kl.-8, Halbpergament d. Zt. "In einer Untersuchung über die Niederschrift des Traums bilden Johann Gottlob Krügers Träume, die zum ersten Mal 1754 in Halle verlegt wurden, zweifelsohne einen Grenzfall. Ihr Anliegen war dennoch wissenschaftlich: Diese Sammlung fiktiver Träume sollte nicht nur den Traumprozess, sondern auch die Natur des Traums beleuchten, d.h. eine Wissenschaft vom Traum vorschlagen. Zwei Probleme wurden damit aufgeworfen. Erstens: Wie könnte eine empirische Psychologie im Sinne einer Wissenschaft vom Traum begründet und definiert werden? Zweitens: Da Wissenschaft auf einem Abstand zwischen Gegenstand und Beobachter beruht, wie waren echte Träume zu beurteilen und Bearbeiten?" (Claire Gantet: Der Traum in der Frühen Neuzeit. S.413) - Frontispiz unterzeichnet: "Mylius del." u. "J. C. G. Fritzsch sc:". Titelkupfer: G. L. Crusius. Im Anhang "Eine Uebersetzung aus den Ceremonies et Coutumes Religieuses de Tous les Peuples du Monde. Abhandlung von dem Gottesdienste."

Gottfried Arnold nennt in seiner "Kirchen- und Ketzergeschichte" (1741 Bd.II, S.424-427) einen Peter Moritz aus Halle als Autor.

I. First edition in French (1st ed., in Latin: Danzig, 1734) and enlarged. This is "one of the earliest monographic treatments of the sea urchins. It includes descriptions, illustrations, and a classification of both recent and fossil sea urchins.Although altered and enlarged, this work was a major source of information on the Echinoidermata for zoologists and paleontologists throughout the eighteenth century and remained a point of departure in discussions by such early nineteenth century authors as James Parkinson."-D.S.B., VII, p. 401. II. First edition in French (1st ed., in Latin: Leipzig, 1743). This work summarizes Klein's feelings about taxonomic methods. His method was based entirely on external characteristics, such as the number and position of limbs and the mouth. He vigorously opposed any method, including the Linnaean system, based on characters not visible externally. Klein (1685-1759), a leading marine zoologist, "had many and diverse interests in natural history besides sea urchins. He developed a botanical garden in Danzig, founded and directed a naturalist's society there, made extensive collections, and published about two dozen monographs, including studies of birds, fishes, reptiles, and invertebrates other than the sea urchins, particularly the mollusks."-D.S.B. The attractive frontispiece depicts Klein standing in front of his natural history cabinet. A very fine and pretty copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Title in red & black. vii, [1], 343, [1] pp. Large 4to, cont. calf (corners a little bruised with one having a bit of wear), spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Göttingen & Leyden: E. Luzac Sons, 1754. First edition of this important book. "In the Recherches, Bonnet grouped five memoirs, all of which were of prime importance for plant biology: He precisely described the characteristics of the nutrition of leaves and of their transpiratory phenomena. Although he did not know the kinds of gases (oxygen and carbon dioxide) produced and absorbed by green leaves exposed to light, Bonnet made very careful observations on their production. For his masterly experimentation, Bonnet should be considered one of the first naturalists to investigate experimentally the question of photosynthesis. He studied the movement of leaves and discovered the epinastic phenomena; he observed the position of leaves on the axis of the stalk and collected a great many anatomic facts; he returned to experiments on etiolation, on the movement of the sap, and on teratology."-D.S.B., II, p. 286. The handsome plates were engraved by Jacob vander Schley and Wandelaer, who executed the famous anatomical plates of Albinus. A fine and crisp copy. ? Pritzel 981.

      Woodcut device on title & 17 folding engraved plates. 6 p.l., 570, xxii pp. Large 4to, cont. mottled sheep (a few minor scuff marks), spine nicely gilt, contrasting vellum lettering piece on spine. Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1754. Third edition, greatly enlarged, of the first exhaustive treatise on the aurora borealis. Mairan attributed the phenomenon to an extension of the sun's atmosphere, which at times enveloped the earth and blended with our atmosphere. "Inquiry into the history and physics of the aurora borealis; the chapter on the relation between the aurora and the magnetic declination is of special interest."-Wheeler Gift Cat. 382. There are many references to Descartes, Newton, Cassini, and Euler. Mairan (1678-1771), while basically a Cartesian, did incorporate some Newtonian ideas in his theories. He was secretary of the Paris Academy of Sciences and belonged to the Royal Societies of London, Edinburgh, and Uppsala, the St. Petersburg Academy, and the Institute of Bologna. Unusually fine copy. Bookplate of Pierre Sciclounoff, the prominent Geneva lawyer and book collector. &#10087; D.S.B., IX, pp. 33-34. See E.

      Par G. Martin. xii, 396 pp. 8vo, cont. mottled calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: G. Martin, 1754. A rare sale catalogue of the library of a Fermier général. According to the Preface by Gabriel Martin, La Haye (1684-1753) was a son of one of the Sécretaires du Roi; he became a Fermier General in 1718 and served in this capacity until his death in 1753 at the age of sixty-nine. He was extremely successful and acquired the Hôtel Lambert from the Marquis du Châtelet in 1745 and lived there in great luxury with a large staff. He formed one of the major collections of paintings of the time and his library was considered to be one of the best when compared to those of his contemporaries. For obvious reasons, the collection was strong in works on finance, French history, and government. The first 3547 lots describe the books, lots 3548-3620 the prints and illustrated books, 3621-3708 maps and atlases, 3709-88 a marvelous collection of engraved and printed music, 3789-97 books ordered by subscription, and 3798-3820 a supplement of books. This is one of twenty-two catalogues by Martin with an index. Fine copy, priced throughout in a contemporary hand.

        Vita e Macchine di Bartolommeo Ferracino...colla Storia del Ponte di Bassano dal Medesimo rifabbricato..

      By Francesco Memmo. Fine engraved frontis. port. of Ferracino & three folding engraved plates. xii, 222 pp. Small 4to, orig. carta rustica, uncut. Venice: Remondini, 1754. First edition. Ferracino (1692-1777), an engineer from Padua, was "interested in machinery from his earliest years, his first invention being a wind-powered saw. Interest in horology and automata produced the well-known clock at St. Mark's in Venice. The most outstanding of his inventions was his Hydraulic Machine which lifted water thirty-five feet from the River Brenta…Because of his fame as an engineer, Ferracino was asked to reconstruct the city bridge of Bassano. This volume opens with a short life of Ferracino, including some laudatory verses, followed by a history of the city bridge at Bassano from 1110 to its destruction. The following section deals with the reconstruction of the bridge and a controversy surrounding it."-Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 115. The attractive plates depict his famous hydraulic machine, the reconstructed city bridge at Bassano, and an elaborate pile driver. Nice uncut copy. ? Riccardi, I, 147.

      Fine engraved headpiece (repeated three times) depicting a scientist in his laboratory & 53 folding engraved plates. xx, 38, 124 pp.; vi, 78, 27 pp. Two vols. in one. Large 4to, cont. polished calf (corners very carefully repaired), spine gilt, contrasting leather lettering piece on spine. Paris: Briasson, 1754-55. Second edition, greatly enlarged, of the first French book on microscopy (1st ed.: 1718 with the title Descriptions and only 34 plates). Joblot (1645-1723), professor of mathematics at the Ecole nationale des Beaux-Arts, probably became interested in microscopy during the visit of Huygens and Hartsoeker to Paris in 1678 when they demonstrated microscopes brought from Holland. While Joblot's observations were largely limited to protozoa in the first edition, the second edition reflects his study of minerals, plant cross-sections, and insects, illustrated on the plates in the first volume. The charming headpiece, repeated three times, depicts a scientist in his laboratory, surrounded by instruments, specimens, and books. The second volume contains a number of fine plates depicting many new kinds of microscopes and their construction. Joblot "introduced some improvements, including the use of stops (diaphragms) in compound microscopes to correct for chromatic aberration. Joblot designed the first porte loupe, a simple preparation microscope in which the lens is supported by a string of 'Musschenbroek nuts,' forming a ball-and-socket jointed arm."-D.S.B., VII, p. 110. A very handsome copy. Several leaves of the table of contents misbound in the second volume. ? Clay & Court, History of the Microscope, pp. 57-61. Dobell, Leeuwenhoek and his Little Animals, p. 372.

        Recherches sur l'Usage des Feuilles dans les Plantes, et sur quelques autres Sujets relatifs a l'Histoire de la Vegetation

      Engraved vignette on title & 31 folding engraved plates. Title in red & black. vii, [1], 343, [1] pp. Large 4to, cont. mottled calf, spine gilt, orange morocco lettering piece on spine. Göttingen & Leyden: E. Luzac, Fils, 1754. First edition and a very handsome copy. "In the Recherches, Bonnet grouped five memoirs, all of which were of prime importance for plant biology: He precisely described the characteristics of the nutrition of leaves and of their transpiratory phenomena. Although he did not know the kinds of gases (oxygen and carbon dioxide) produced and absorbed by green leaves exposed to light, Bonnet made very careful observations on their production. For his masterly experimentation, Bonnet should be considered one of the first naturalists to investigate experimentally the question of photosynthesis. He studied the movement of leaves and discovered the epinastic phenomena; he observed the position of leaves on the axis of the stalk and collected a great many anatomic facts; he returned to experiments on etiolation, on the movement of the sap, and on teratology."-D.S.B., II, p. 286. The handsome plates were engraved by Jacob vander Schley and Wandelaer, who executed the famous anatomical plates of Albinus. A really fine and unpressed copy. ? Pritzel 981.

        Ordre Naturel des Oursins de Mer et Fossiles, avec des Observations sur les Piquans des Oursins de Mer, et quelques Remarques sur les Bélemnites

      Fine engraved frontis. port. of Klein & 28 engraved plates. 3 p.l. (incl. frontis), 233, [1] pp., one leaf of ads. 8vo, fine cont. polished calf, spine nicely gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: C.J.B. Bauche, 1754. [bound with]:-. Doutes ou Observations de Mr. Klein…sur la Revûe des Animaux, faite par le premier Homme, sur quelques Animaux des Classes des Quadrupedes & Amphibies du systême de la Nature, de M. Linnaeus. Et des Remarques sur les Crustacés, sur les Animaux qui ruminent, & sur la Vie de l'Homme, comparée avec celle des Animaux. One folding engraved plate. 2 p.l., 108 pp. 8vo. Paris: J.B. Bauche, 1754. I. First edition in French (1st ed., in Latin: Danzig, 1734) and enlarged. This is "one of the earliest monographic treatments of the sea urchins. It includes descriptions, illustrations, and a classification of both recent and fossil sea urchins...Although altered and enlarged, this work was a major source of information on the Echinoidermata for zoologists and paleontologists throughout the eighteenth century and remained a point of departure in discussions by such early nineteenth century authors as James Parkinson."-D.S.B., VII, p. 401. II. First edition in French (1st ed., in Latin: Leipzig, 1743). This work summarizes Klein's feelings about taxonomic methods. His method was based entirely on external characteristics, such as the number and position of limbs and the mouth. He vigorously opposed any method, including the Linnaean system, based on characters not visible externally. Klein (1685-1759), a leading marine zoologist, "had many and diverse interests in natural history besides sea urchins. He developed a botanical garden in Danzig, founded and directed a naturalist's society there, made extensive collections, and published about two dozen monographs, including studies of birds, fishes, reptiles, and invertebrates other than the sea urchins, particularly the mollusks."-D.S.B. The attractive frontispiece depicts Klein standing in front of his natural history cabinet. A very fine and pretty copy.

        A treatise of tenures. Containing the original, nature, use, and effect of feudal or common-law tenures.

      Dublin: Pr. by Alex. M'Culloh for Sarah Cotter 8vo (19.8 cm, 7.8"). vii, [1], 144, [36 (index)] pp.. 1754 First Irish edition and, notably, printed for a => woman publisher. Sir Geoffrey (also given as Jeffrey or Jeffray) Gilbert (1674?1726), an eminent English judge, became chief baron of the Irish exchequer to the acclaim of all and sundry ? until a case he was hearing put the Irish House of Lords in direct conflict with the British, leading to his brief imprisonment and, though much of the situation was beyond his control, much subsequent blame from the Irish for the passing of the Dependency of Ireland on Great Britain Act of 1719. During his otherwise more fortunate career, Gilbert wrote a number of legal works, none of which were published until after his death but all of which were well-received upon their appearance. This particular treatise was => praised by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1815, and by John Adams; it appears here in its first Irish and third overall edition, following the first of 1730. Contemporary speckled calf, joints reinforced some time ago, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and blind-tooled bands. Pages age-toned and lightly cockled, with mild to moderate offsetting and spotting; last few leaves of index waterstained.
