        The Chronology and History of the World, from the Creation to the Year of Christ, 1753; Illustrated in LVI Tables; of which IV are Introductory and include the Centurys prior to the Ist Olympiad; and each of the remaining LII contain in one expanded view, 50 years, or Half a Century.

      London: [privately printed], 1754.. [Chronological Tables]. FIRST EDITION. Large folio (45 x 31cm), pp.[16], [34]. With 56 copper engraved tables, some extending over two leaves. Including an introduction and detailed indexes, as well as a formidable list of subscribers including the King and the Prince of Wales. In recent tan quarter calf with raised bands, gilt titles to burgundy label on spine and marbled boards. Tears to the base of plates 17, 18 and 19, near the binding and not affecting text. A few contemporary manuscript additions to the tables, scattered throughout. Very good overall. Beginning with Adam, here born 4004 years before Christ, the first four tables rush through 3200 years, sketching events from the Bible and the Heroic Age of Ancient Greece. Thereafter every year from 800 B.C. to 1753 is recorded in tabular form, with notable events, rulers and other important characters marked out against them. Inevitably, the 'History of the World' refers almost exclusively to Europe. Space is also provided for more information to be added by hand up to the year 1800 (not filled out in this case).

        Der vom Frauenzimmer unschuldig verfolgte, geplagte und endlich ins gröste Elend gestürtzte Gelehrte oder wahrhaffte Geschichte eines nicht unbekannten Rechts-Gelehrten, einer grossen und Welt-berühmten Hansee-Stadt, aus dessen eigenhändigen hinterlassenen Nachrichten ans Licht gestellet [The scholar innocently hounded, tormented and finally plunged into deepest misery by a woman, or the true tale of a not entirely unknown legal scholar from a large and world-famous Hanseatic town, brought to light based on handwritten notes discovered after his death]

      Frankfurt und Leipzig: In Commission der Buchnerschen Handlung, 1754. Small octavo (16.8 × 10 cm). Later (late nineteenth-century) half parchment with hand-written title to spine; marbled boards; [3], 78 pp. Few old stains to gutter and some toning; else very good. First and only edition of this anonymously published German erotic novel, which contains possibly the earliest literary depiction of the "dumb blond" stereotype. It precedes the depiction in a 1775 satirical play of Rosalie Duthé (1748-1830), a Parisian courtesan typically cited as the first recorded "stereotypical blonde" in modern history (see, for instance, Joanna Pitman, On Blondes, 2003). The novel's protagonist, Aquilius, a young lawyer from Hamburg, meets Hedwig, a striking beauty, "the most beautiful among blondes," who captivates him immensely. Although he initially mistakes her silence for exhaustion or reticence, Aquilius soon discovers that Hedwig is unable to engage in any sensible conversation and explaims: "the head is beautiful, but it contains no brain" ("Der Kopf ist schön, nur fehlt das Gehirn," p. 43). The novel contains numerous other misogynistic depictions of the many women Aquilius encounters, nearly all of which are depicted as taking advantage of the noble-minded and polite young jurist. Finally, driven into desperation, Aquilius agrees to marry the widow of a lawyer, who drives him to suicide by her controlling and demeaning behavior. Ronald Dietrich cites the text as a particularly interesting case combining the literary theme of the naive scholar with prejudice toward women: "Den Höhepunkt misogyner Darstellung im Zusammenhang mit dem Gelehrten stellt möglicherweise Talinus' 1754 erschienene und bereits im Titel aufschlußreiche Schrift . dar. Hier stößt man nicht von ungefähr auf die vielleicht erste Blondine der Literatur" (Dietrich, Der Gelehrte in der Literatur, p. 184). With the bookplate of the Dutch collector François Gerard Waller (1867-1934), as well as an earlier bookplate of H. Heerdinck, to front pastedown. Hayn/Gotendorf VII, 525 ("very rare"). Bibliotheca Germanorum erotica, p. 133. Rare, with KVK, OCLC locating only the copy at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.

        Genuine and Impartial Memoirs Of Elizabeth Canning, Containing A complete History of that unfortunate Girl, From her Birth to the Present Time, and Particularly every remarkable Occurrence from The Day of her Absence, January 1, 1753, to the Day of her receiving Sentence, May 30, 1754.

      In which is included, The whole Tenor of the Evidence given against, And for her, on her late extraordinary Trial. With some Observations On the Behaviour of the Court, and the Conduct of the Jury. Also Free and Candid Remarks On Sir Crisp Gascoyne's Address. London: Printed for G. Woodfall at Charing-Cross, 1754. 12mo; half-title not called for; final page blank; pp.vi+293+[i]; A3, B - I, K - N12, O3; recent full natural fine-grain morocco (but probably in fact a brilliant plasticised imitation!), ruled and tooled blind and gilt on spine, brown lettering-piece ruled and lettered gilt; oil-marbled end-papers. Title-page embrowned and with small chip to lower fore-corner; a little scattered light foxing and marking, chiefly of early leaves; a few small corners turned; otherwise, and in general, a nice copy. Very scarce. Probably the First Detective Novel.Despite the unpromising title, a very readable epistolary novel in the manner of Richardson (whose 'Pamela' is mentioned in the text), and an essay in detective fiction precursive in its method of Edgar Allen Poe's 'The Mystery of Mary Roget' - taking as its subject-matter and structural principle the events surrounding the (temporary) disappearance of an eighteen year old girl, Elizabeth Canning, and the subsequent investigations which culminated: first in the trial of a notorious bawd, Mother Wells, and a gypsy, Mary Squires, for robbing and imprisoning her at the former's house in Enfield Wash (an area which seems not greatly to have changed its character in the last quarter millenium or so!); and subsequently in the trial and conviction of the girl herself for perjury. The persona writing the letters claims to have visited the alleged scene of the imprisonment - and other places involved in the development of the story - and also to have interviewed witnesses; but the main part of the novel is concerned with the development and analysis of the evidence, in real time, as it came to be presented through the medium of the pamphlet and newspaper war that surrounded the trials, the statements, depositions, etc. of the principals and witnesses, or at the Court hearings themselves. Most of the documents referred to are presented either in footnotes or in the body of the text (including full transcripts of the two 'Informations' given before Henry Fielding, and witnessed by him in his capacity of magistrate, which are referred to, but not transcribed, in his own pamphlet on the Canning affair). Besides its interest as a novel, and the fact that it is possibly the earliest example in fiction of an analytical method applied to a series of criminous events, it offers the fullest contemporary presentation of the circumstances surrounding these two celebrated trials, and presents a very credible argument for its conclusions. Anonymous as it is, it was advertised at the time as having been compiled by a society in Charge of Canning's case - a statement which should not be taken as meaning her defence. Not in Block, Hubin, or Summers; Raven, 267; ESTC T144508; British Library, Oxford, Wellcome, Cambridge, National Trust, and Leeds copies only on COPAC. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        Jubilos da America, na gloriosa exaltação, e promoção do Illustrissimo e Excellentissimo Senhor Gomes Freire de Andrada ... Collecção das obras da Academia dos Selectos, que na Cidade do Rio de Janeiro se celebrou em obsequio, e applauso do dito Excellentissimo Heroe ....

      Lisbon, Na Oficina do Dor. Manoel Alvares Sollano, 1754.. FIRST and ONLY EDITION. 4°, nineteenth-century brown levant morocco by Emile Rousselle (minor wear at joints), spine richly gilt with raised bands in six compartments, gilt fillets on bands, covers with triple gilt ruled borders, edges of covers double ruled in gilt, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endleaves, all text-block edges gilt. Title page in red and black, woodcut vignette on *ii, woodcut ornaments scattered throughout. Some browning. Small hole at foot of text on Y1, affecting 3 letters per side. Overall in very good to fine condition. Armorial bookplate of Joaquim de Sousa-Leão, made in England, signed in print with tiny initials W.P.B., and dated 1927. (40 ll.), 363 pp. [p. 191 misnumbered 165]. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of "a Brazilian literary classic" (Borba de Moraes II, 760). According to Wilson Martins, "Os Jubilos da America ... estão literariamente na ponta inicial de um arco cuja ponta final será O Uraguai - ambas as obras ligadas à história do nosso estabelecimento territorial e à fisionomia geográfica do Brasil" (História da inteligência brasileira I, 364). As Borba points out (Período colonial, p. 323), it is not only the individual contributors that make this an interesting volume. Jubilos is also the only publication of a Brazilian academy of this period in which we can see how the academy was founded and how it functioned, by reading the dedication, prologue, the letters to Sequeira e Sá and the program. The work represents, too, a group effort by intellectuals characteristic of their era. Innocêncio believed that almost the entire edition of Jubilos had been sent to Brazil, and Borba comments, "Today very few copies exist. Copies in good condition are rare." This volume was mostly the work of the members of the Academia dos Selectos, founded in Rio de Janeiro. The Academia met only once, on 30 January 1752, to offer congratulations to the Brazilian governor, Gomes Freire de Andrada, on his appointment as head of the Portuguese commission to establish the frontier with Spain in southern Brazil. These pieces in Latin, Portuguese and Spanish include the work of more than thirty Brazilian authors (at least nine of them natives of Brazil), most of whom did not publish works elsewhere. Even the editor admitted that the quality of the works was uneven: "Reconheço que nas obras que produzco a nossa Academia, reluz mas o affectuoso que o Poetico." However, they are invaluable for the study of Brazilian prose and verse of this period, and also important as one of the few published products of the eighteenth-century Brazilian academies. The volume is dedicated to Gomes Freire's brother, José Antonio Freire de Andrada, who funded the publication of Jubilos (see preliminary leaves 2-14). Sequeira e Sá, who wrote the dedication, also composed the prologue to the reader, in which he explains how the Academia was formed (preliminary leaves 15-28). Eight leaves of poems dedicated to Sequeira e Sá follow (preliminary leaves 29-36), all written by natives of Brazil who were studying or teaching at Coimbra; none of these authors had any other works published (see Borba, Período colonial, pp. 319-20 for a list of these authors). The last four preliminary leaves include the index of contributors and the licenses. On pp. 1-46 of the text proper are Sequeira e Sá's letter to the members of the Academia and the replies he received. These replies are especially informative, because each is preceded by a paragraph in italics that states the writer's occupation and literary accomplishments. Next (pp. 47-57) is the program of the Academia, listing the subjects from which the contributors are to choose their themes. Finally, on pp. 59-336, are the poems themselves. Aside from the signed works, this section includes unsigned poems by groups of Jesuits (pp. 133-73), Benedictines (pp. 175-84), Franciscans (pp. 185-88) and Carmelites (pp. 189-91). A final section, which Borba suggests was added as an afterthought (see Período colonial, p. 321), contains more poems in honor of Seqeuira e Sá and some poems on subjects unrelated to Gomes Freire. The contributors to the volume came from various walks of life. Antonio Nunes de Sequeira and Francisco de Faria were both clergymen. Nunes de Sequeira was born at S. Sebastião (Rio de Janeiro) in 1701, and entered the Church after studying law. Known for his composition of poetry and music, he also served as a choirmaster. His only known surviving works are those printed in this volume: a "Romance Lyrico" (pp. 207-09), three sonnets (pp. 210-12), an epigram (p. 213) and a long "Romance" (pp. 339-42). (See Blake I, 272). Francisco de Faria, president of the Academia dos Selectos, contributed two letters (pp. 7-8), an "Oração panegyrico" (pp. 59-88) and a sonnet (p. 130). Faria, born in 1708 at Goiana (Pernambuco), taught at Bahia, but in 1760 was exiled to Lisbon and Rome (see Leite VIII, 216 and Blake II, 438-39). His only other published work is the famous Conclusiones metaphysicas de ente reali ..., Rio de Janeiro, 1747, one of the only three works printed by Antonio Isidoro da Fonseca at the first printing press established in Brazil. (See Borba I, 303). The Jesuit Simão Pereira de Sá, a native of Rio de Janeiro (b. 1701), was Procurador da Coroa e Fazenda for Rio de Janeiro and also a historian. His history of Colonia do Sacramento had received the licenses for publication when Jubilos appeared (see p. 21), but for some reason was not printed until Capistrano de Abreu published part of it in 1900 (see Borba, Período colonial p. 322). The other works by Pereira de Sá mentioned in the Jubilos were apparently unpublished during the author's lifetime; his only appearance in print was with the two sonnets, the "Romance heroico" and two poems to Sequeira e Sá in Jubilos, pp. 285-90 and 343-46. (See Blake VII, 234-35). Antonio Cordeiro da Silva, born at Rio de Janeiro early in the eighteenth century, studied at Coimbra and pursued a military career; by 1752 he was captain of a regiment in Rio de Janeiro (see Blake I, 139). Cordeiro da Silva contributed nine works to this volume (pp. 249-65), including a 29-stanza poem on the military situation of Colonia do Sacramento (pp. 253-62). One of his other poems was published separately: Maria Imaculada, Lisbon 1760 (see Borba II, 798). The only woman author represented in the Jubilos is Angela do Amaral Rangel, "A Ceguinha," born blind at S. Sebastião (Rio de Janeiro) in 1725. As Blake points out (I, 85-86), she lived in an age when no one knew how to give a literary education to the blind. This and the fact that her native tongue was Castilian, rather than Portuguese, made her poetic accomplishments the more remarkable: "Sem educação litteraria, sem cabedal algum de instrucção necessaria al cultivo da poesia, dona Angela do Amaral foi um genio ... " (Blake I, 85). Her only published works are the "Romance" and two sonnets in this volume (pp. 271-75); one of the sonnets was reprinted by Varnhagen in his Florilegio. Angela do Amaral Rangel was not a member of the Academia, although she wrote on the prescribed themes. Mateus Saraiva, president of the Academia dos Felizes (founded in Rio de Janeiro, 1736) contributed a long letter and seen sonnets (pp. 28-32, 230-35 and 305). Not mentioned in the introduction to the letter, although it does appear in the subscription to the sonnets, is the fact that Saraiva was Chief Physician of Rio de Janeiro. He wrote and circulated in manuscript one of several works criticizing João Cardoso de Miranda's Relação cirurgica of 1741. (See Borba II, 573; not in Blake). Manuel Tavares de Sequeira e Sá, the secretary of the Academia dos Selectos and editor of this volume, was trained in law at Coimbra, then served as a magistrate in Portugal and later in Paranaguá (Paraná). He wrote the dedication and prologue of the Jubilos and the final poem in the volume (p. 363), but published no separate works. (See Blake VI, 204; Borba II, 759-60; and Borba, Período colonial, pp. 317-19). Provenance: Joaquim de Sousa-Leão, distinguished Brazilian historian and diplomat of Portuguese ancestry, was a significant book and art collector. He wrote on art and historical subjects, being an expert on the Flemish painter Frans Post: see Frans Post 1612-1680, Amsterdam: A.L.

        Heures Nouvelles Contenant Le Petit Office. Dedies a Tres illustre, Tres Populaire et ttres Vertueuse Dame La Duchesse D'Aiguillon Par Son Tres Humble. Serviteur Claude Gaignol [manuscript - manuscrit]

      Unpublished, France 1754 - (12.5x19cm) [8] ff 118 [2] Eighteenth century devotional manuscript dedicated to the Duchesse D'Aiguillon, Louise-Felicite de Brehan, who became Duchess when her husband the General and later Secretary of State for War, Emmanuel-Armand De Vignerot Plessis, assumed the Dukedom in 1750. Bound in crimson sheepskin with elaborate gilt decoration and all edges gilt, old adhesive marks to the upper cover; pink silk endpapers with an eighteenth century manuscript bookplate of 'Pelzi Delvev[?]' and on the following blank the armorial bookplate of the early nineteenth century collector Henri-Auguste Brolemann of Lyon (collection dispersed Sotheby's 1926 - later sold at Christies, 22 June 1983, Lot 145). The manuscript is written recto and verso on Dutch 'Blauw' watermarked paper with half a dozen engravings by Claude Duflos after Charles Le Brun tipped in. Written in a mixture of black, blue and gold for initial words, the manuscript is in French and Latin, foliated throughout with each page of text contained within a double ruled panel. The text concludes with a two page Table. This example of a manuscript books of hours is relatively late but conforms to the eighteenth century pattern of dedicating the book to a prominent figure. In this case the Duchesse D'Aiguillon was just reaching the zenith of her influence at the court of Louis XV despite the hostility between her husband and the King who had contrived to steal the young Plessis' lover Marie Anne by sending the young man off on a series of designedly lethal military adventures. Fortunately for the future Duchesse the young man survived the ideal and had a distinguished career which culminated in his assuming the role of Foreign Secretary.

        Institutiones juris naturae et gentium in quibus ex ipsa hominis natura continuo nexu omnes obligationes et jura omnia deducuntur

      Halle Magdeburgicae ; Renger, 1754 - Wolff (1679-1754) war einer der wichtigsten Philosophen der Aufklärungszeit. Seit 1706 war er Professor für Mathematik und Philosophie an der Universität Halle, mußte die Stadt jedoch wegen des Vorwurfs des Atheismus aufgrund eines königlichen Befehls 1723 verlassen. Er war ein charismatischer Professor, dessen in deutscher Sprache gehaltene Vorlesungen über Rationalismus, Vernunft und Offenbarung oder mathematische und philosophische Erkenntnis bei Studenten und Gelehrten Anklang fanden, so dass er über eine große Anhängerschaft verfügte. Seine Ideen und Gedanken zur Vernunft bildeten auch die Grundlage des modernen Völkerrechts. In dieser Naturrechtslehre verbindet er den Gedanken der sozialen Natur des Menschen mit der von Leibniz übernommenen Idee der Vervollkommnung (perfectio) von Mensch und Gesellschaft. Das Naturrecht der Aufklärung, das im 18. Jahrhundert großen Einfluss auf die Gesetzgebung gewann, erwarb sich um die Humanisierung der Rechtspflege (Abschaffung der Folter und der Hexenprozesse) nachhaltige Verdienste la Gewicht in Gramm: 528 18 x 11,5cm, zeitgen.

        The Philosophical Works of the late Right Honorable Henry St John, Lord Viscount Bolingbroke, in Five Volumes

      London, David Mallet, 1754 (first collected octavo edition). Octavo, five volumes; early full polished calf with gilt morocco title-labels on the spines; joints starting to crack, but all of them are very firm; endpapers lightly tanned around the edges by the leather; trifling signs of use and age; an excellent set. Each volume contains the armorial bookplate of A.R. Downer, Sir Alexander 'Alick' Russell Downer (1910-1981), politician and diplomat. He was the Minister for Immigration under Menzies from 1958, and the Australian High Commissioner in London from 1963 to 1972. Henry St John, '1st Viscount Bolingbroke (1678-1751) was an English politician, government official and political philosopher. He was a leader of the Tories, and supported the Church of England politically despite his anti-religious views and opposition to theology. In 1715 he supported the Jacobite rebellion of 1715 which sought to overthrow the new king George I. Escaping to France he became foreign minister for the Pretender. He was attainted for treason, but reversed course and was allowed to return to England in 1723. He is best known as the philosopher of the Country Party' (Wikipedia). The 'Dictionary of National Biography' bears all this out, and more, and has this to say about his works: 'Bolingbroke's philosophical works were published after the deist controversy in England had lost much of its novelty.... [His] works excited only a momentary attention, and are too fragmentary and discursive to be of much value.... Finally, in 1754, Mallet published the collected works ... which add "Substance of some Letters written originally in French about 1720, to M. de Pouilly"; "A Letter occasioned by one of Archbishop Tillotson's Sermons"; "[Four] Essays addressed to Alexander Pope"; "Fragments or Minutes of Essays" ... which, according to Mallet, were sent to Pope as written. This edition was the gun charged against Christianity of Dr. Johnson's famous comment'.

        Ruins of the Palace of the Emperor Diocletian at Spalatro in Dalmatia

      By R. Adam F.R.S. F.S.A. Architect to the King and to the Queen. Printed for the author MDCCLXIIII. Elephant folio (564 mm tall), contemporary half-calf over marbled papered boards (worn), spine in compartments with simple gilt rule, contrasting morocco title label, pp. [xii]; 34; 61 fine copperplate engravings, many of which are folding and printed on multiple sheets, a short split to plate 18, plate 2 with a marginal water stain not affecting the image, a fine and clean copy. "Robert Adam is today known as one of the foremost practitioners of the neo-classical style of architecture. The son of the architect, builder and entrepreneur William Adam, he undertook the Grand Tour (1754-8) after his university education, though with more constructive ambitions towards the antique than most of his contemporaries. He became acquainted with archaeologists and architects, and designed fantasy buildings based upon what he saw in Rome. The climax of his tour was Dalmatia, which he visited in 1757 in the company of the French architect Charles-Louis Clérisseau (1721-1820) and two other draughtsmen. Clérisseau's speciality was in fantasy buildings or actual buildings set in imagined, romantic landscapes, and he was to provide the picturesque views and romanticised images of the palace at Spalato (formerly Spalatro; now Split) for Adam's 'magnum opus'. The publication of large folio volumes of illustrations of the antique was in its heyday, and offered a perfect opportunity for Adam to make his name and challenge his rivals with a magnificent production. Adam took seven years to produce his volume after the visit to Dalmatia, finally publishing it in 1764. The engravings were supplied by Francesco Bartolozzi among others and the publication may be seen as part of Adam's single-minded ambition to establish himself as the leading architect in England as well as Scotland." - Royal Collection Trust website, https://www.royalcollection.org.uk/collection/1071086/ruins-of-the-palace-of-the-emperor-diocletian-at-spalatro A fine copy in contemporary binding of one of the great illustrated records of the Grand Tour.

        A Careful and Strict Enquiry into the Modern Prevailing Notions of that Freedom of Will, which is Supposed to be Essential to Moral Agency, Vertue and Vice, Reward and Punishment, Praise and Blame

      Boston: S. Kneeland, 1754. First edition. Rebound to style in full sheep, blind rules, raised bands and a red morocco spine label. Octavo (pages 195 x 114 m), collating: [ii], vi, [iv], 294, [xiv]; complete with the Table of Contents in the front, and the Index and List of Subscribers, in the back. Index with errata slip pasted in. Pages browned, minor soiling and a few early and late leaves dampstained. Overall a Very Good copy of a scarce and important work. The Cambridge History of American Literature devotes a whole chapter to Jonathan Edwards, pointing out that he remains one of the giants of the intellect and one of the enduring masters of religious emotion. It was of this book that Dr. Johnson said "[a]ll theory is against the freedom of the will, all experience for it." Boswell's typical remark was "[t]he only relief I had was to forget it." A very important early American philosophical work. "The most recent generation of scholars has put Edwards back into deeper historical context: as a pastor exemplifying changes in the role of the minister within a socioeconomically evolving community; as a preacher developing the homiletic arts to fit the needs of his audience; and as a thinker engaging with the best European ideas, innovatively synthesizing rationalism and piety in order to transmit the best of the Puritan vision of man's frailty and God's glory into a modern age that found it convenient to ignore both."

        Scelta di XXIV vedute delle principali contrade, piazze, chiese, e palazzi della Città di Firenze.

      Florence Giuseppe Bouchard 1754 - Second edition. Folio (58 x 41.5 cm). Double-page engraved allegorical title page, engraved dedication, engraved map, 24 double-page etched and engraved plates numbered I-XXIV, engraved by Corsi, Franceschini, Gabuggiani, Gregori, Papini, Muller, Marieschi, Monaco, Pazzi Pfeffel, Seuter, Sgrilli, Vasi, after drawings by Zocchi. Contemporary red morocco gilt by Derome (ticket to title); small hole (50 mm) to blank outer margin outside plate plate mark of plate VII, tiny area of restoration to verso plate XXIII outside plate mark. A complete set of the finest pictorial record of the historical architecture of Florence in the XVIII century. In red morocco by Derome. Zocchi (1711-1767), a painter, draftsman, and etcher, was the protege of Gerini, who commissioned these prints and also paid for Zocchi's artistic education in Rome, Bologna, and Lombardy. Although he made easel and mural paintings, Zocchi's oeuvre is richest in drawings and prints. The present series was etched by a team of twelve artists after Zocchi's designs. The four most important squares are shown at times of great festivity, and are most likely the earliest views Zocchi made for this series. Other plates demonstrate various uses of the River Arno, the splendid bridges that cross it, and the great buildings along its shore. The series as a whole presents Florence in a wonderful light, as a city of beautiful architecture with a lively population: 'Consistently celebrative and accomplished, this collection shows a city striving to maintain a placid and prosperous appearance; Zocchi's limpid vision, similar to Carlevaris' and Visentini's interpretations of Venice, endow the city with cohesion and serenity.'

        Herman Boerhaavs Phisiologie (Physiologie) / Uebersezt und mit Zusätzen vermehrt Von Johann Peter Eberhard Der Weltweisheit und Arzneigelahrtheit Doktor und der Weltweisheit ausserordentlichen Professor.

      Halle im Magdeburgischen, 1754, 8, (16), 1128 pp., (32 pp. Register, Halbpergamenteinband einige Lagen im Rand wasserfleckig, ansonsten feines und frisches Exemplar. Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ersten akademischen Lehrbuches der Physiologie!"Boerhaaves "Institutiones medicae" erschienen seit 1708 in immer neuen Auflage. 1741 erfolgte die erste Übertragung ins Englische, 1740 ins Französische, 1754 *) unter dem Titel "Phisiologia" ins Deutsche. Dies Buch war das erste akademische Lehrbuch der Physiologie für Studenten. Die Wirkung dieses Titels: "Institutiones medicae" läßt sich in der Bezeichnung englischer und amerikanischer Lehrstühle für diesen Gegenstand verfolgen. Sie hießen sei damals vielfach "Instiutes of Medicine" und hatten vornehmlich Physiologie im Sinne Boerhaaves zum Lehr- und Forschungsgegenstand. So entstand in Edinburgh im Jahre 1726 ein Lehrstuhl mit der Bezeichnung "Institues of Medicine" unter Boerhaaves Schüler Andrew Sinclair. Er wurde erst 1874 in einen solchen für "Physiologie" umgewandelt." "Im großen und ganzen enthält die Physiologie Boerhaaves keinen wesentlich Zuwachs an neuen Tatsachen. Doch bedeutet sein Versuch, die Physik und Chemie zur Erklärung der Vorgänge in der organischen Struktur heranzuziehen und die medizinische Krankheitslehre und Therapie von Boden naturwissenschaftlichen Erfahrungen systematisch zu begründen, einen lange nachwirkenden Anreiz zu ähnlichen Unternehmungen. Herman Boerhaave (1668-1738) hat vor allem seinen großen Schüler Albrecht von Haller für diese Fragen lebhaft interessiert und damit den Ausbau in der zweiten Hälfte des 18.Jahrhunderts den Weg bereitet." K.E.Rothschuh, Geschichte der Physiologie, pp.68-73"In seinen experimentell-physikalischen Vorlesungen wirkte Johann Peter Eberhard (1828-1779) höchst fortschrittlich als Aufklärer und machte die Physik frei von allem Geheimnisvollen und Übernatürlichen, worauf auch die Titel seiner Bücher "Sammlung derer ausgemachten Wahrheiten in der Naturlehre" (Halle 1755) und "Abhandlungen vom physikalischen Aberglauben und der Magie" (ebenda 1778) hindeuten. Als Mediziner war er ein Anhänger Friedrich Hoffmanns als Schriftsteller pflegte er neben der Zoologie und Physiologie insbesondere die Physik (Newtons Farbentheorie Schall Feuer, Licht und Elektrizität Gewitter Nordlicht Himmelsfarbe) und die Mathesis applicata (Mühlenbaukunst, Hydrotechnik, Bergwerksmaschinen, Optik, Gnomonik). " Rudolph Zaunick, NDB 4 (1959), pp. 239-240Lindeboom Nr. 76 *(Nr.75 (1734) weltweit nicht nachweis bar)

        SAMUEL SPAVOLD'S MANUSCRIPT VISION

      SPAVOLD, Simon . Manuscript " A Vision which Sam Spavold had when he was in London" [London 1754?] Folio Pp 4, approx 1600 words written in a tidy hand in ink, now bound in modern marbled paper covered boards. Simon Spavold (1708-1795) was a Yorkshire born Quaker Minister, who lived in later life in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, described as a Ship's Carpenter. He was described as "Tall in person, of a thin habit, and latterly of a genteel appearance, the figure of this fine prophetic Soul was familiar in Meetings far and wide." [Citation: Sinton Family Trees The History of Ballyhagan and Richhill Meetings 1654 - 1793 - 2004 The manuscript letter is in three sections, the first headed as above, the second part "To Friends of the Morning Meeting as likewise to my Brethren of the Meeting of Suffering. My Brethren....." dated at end "12th Month 28th 1754" and the third part which is not headed but contains Spavold's declaration of his vision. Apparently there exists a publication by Spavold together with Thomas Carrington entitled "An Epistle to Friends at the National Half-Year's Meeting in Ireland " ,Dublin 1779, and there is extensive information online about Spavold's Irish visits [ see citation above]. Spavold also visited America with Mary Kirby in 1757. Spavold's vision is an extraordinary piece of writing .This excerpt contains both visual and auditory hallucinations;"I awakening out of my sleep about the third hour in ye morning instantly was seized with great Darkness and my Soul fill'd with unutterable fear, and Dread, and Horror Whilst I thus lay, I beheld a little Cloud about as big as a man's hand, hovering over the City, and my mind being fix'd upon it, I heard a very awefull voice speak these words, "Both Church and State bear Rule by the Spirit of Error" and it was repeated several times, and as I beheld the Cloud it moved, and came down upon ye City...." A very emotive Quaker piece.

        Een Christins reyse na de eeuwigheyt. (.). Vertaald uit het Engels. Amsterdam, Gijsbert de Groot Keur, 1754.

      - 12°: A-L 12 M 6, gepag.: 269 [3] pp. Titelpagina in houtsnede. Ooorspr. karton. Lit.: Witsen Geysbeek II p.105 Vervolg op 'De Christenreis'. In dit tweede deel beschrijft Bunyan de zinnebeeldige tocht van Christiana en haar kinderen naar de hemelse zaligheid. Zij hebben het een stuk gemakkelijker dan Christen, omdat die op zijn reis te gelijk de bane eerst moest breken en daarom de allerhardste strijd uytstaan. 'Een Christins reyse' (eerste Engelse druk 1684) heeft bij lange na niet de bekendheid gekregen van de zes jaar eerder verschenen 'Pilgrim's progress'. De op de titelpagina met A.E.C. aangeduide vertaler is Albert Ebbo Crous, die door Witsen Geysbeek wordt weggezet als een Groninger rijmer die in 1721 een allerellendigst prulwerk, genaamd Josephs droev' en bly-einde4, 398, in het allerplatste Groninger dialect [heeft] geschreven; plomper taal is misschien nimmer in eenig tooneelstuk gevoerd. De eerste druk van Crous' vertaling was in 1723 in Groningen verschenen bij Seerp Bandsma. Deze uitgave is zoals veel volksboekjes gedrukt in gotische letter; vooraf gaat een drempelvers van R.A.Cr. van Stalberg. De titelplaat, die de berg toont die moet worden beklommen om de Hemelse Stad te bereiken, is midden in het boekje nogmaals afgedrukt. L1839
