        1754-1763 COMPLETE ACCOUNTING ARCHIVE AND HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT AUDIT OF THE EXPENSES AND RECEIVABLES OF THE HOPITAL DES INCURABLES

      Paris FRANCE 1754 - On offer is an accounting report for l'Hopital des Incurables in Paris France covering the years 1754 to 1763. This folio of two 23" x 19" folded sheets is a complete and detailed accounting of expenses, receivables etc for a ten year period. Beautiful penned final audit of the hospital's accounting. Folded twice into a quarter size, the documents are in good+ shape with some framing to the facing pages and some minor splits to some of the folds. Interior pages are super. Provenance: The collection of SIR THOMAS PHILLIPPS (1792-1872). Born in 1792, Sir Thomas Phillipps from childhood was obsessed with the idea of obtaining virtually anything written or printed on paper, including cartloads of documents from wastepaper merchants and the entire inventories of booksellers. "I wish to have one copy of every book in the world," he declared to a friend. He very nearly succeeded. His collection ultimately grew to more than 100,000 books and at least 60,000 manuscripts. As a result of his extravagant purchases, Sir Thomas was permanently on the verge of bankruptcy and was constantly pursued by creditors. So many books arrived at his house that it was impossible to unpack his acquisitions much less keep pace with them. Visiting scholars, driven to distraction, would spend days hunting for an elusive text in the dusty heaps that filled every room. Because Sir Thomas has a morbid dread of fire, most of his collection was housed in coffinlike boxes that could be carted away quickly. Visitors to Middle Hill were struck too, by the presence of numerous logs, a ploy he used to lure beetles away from his books. As Sir Thomas relentlessly pursued his passion, the house itself began to crumble and its floors started to sag under the cast weight of hundreds of tons of paper. His neglect of Middle Hill was partly deliberate, however. Sir Thomas's chief enemy in life, James Halliwell, had married his daughter against his wishes. It appears that Halliwell was, in Sir Thomas' eyes, the worst kind of criminal, a book thief who had stolen valuable works from university libraries and even from his father-in-law. Having no sons, Sir Thomas was unable to prevent Halliwell from inheriting his estate. To ensure that his detested heir would never receive anything of value, Sir Thomas's solution was to allow Middle Hill to fall unto complete disrepair. He even went so far as to chop down and sell for lumber the centuries-old oak trees that lined the majestic mile-long drive to his home. In 1863 Sir Thomas decided to move - in order to accommodate his books. With the aid of 160 men, 103 wagonloads of books and papers drawn by 230 horses, the books were lumbered from Middle Hill top their new estate in nearby Cheltenham. It is said that for years afterwards the countryside was littered with the remains of carts that had collapsed under the sheer weight of the Phillipps collection. Sir Thomas continues to add to his library until his death in 1872. After Sir Thomas's death, his immediate family had no room for his collection. So vast was the library that although individual items and large sections were sold privately or through numerous auction sales, the Phillipps collection is still being sold more than a century after the death of its owner. In the course of its sales, many treasures have come to light. As late as 1964, part of the long-lost and unique medieval manuscript of the Roman poet Ovid's Metamorphoses appeared and was subsequently reunited with its other half at Magdalen College, Oxford. Once destined for destruction as worthless wastepaper, this and many other priceless works were saved by the single-minded obsession of the greatest bibliomaniac of all time.

Illustrée d'un frontispice d'après Cochin. Pleine Basane blonde d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de tête en partie élimée et mors supérieur ouvert en coiffe. Epidermures sur les plats. L'ouvrage débute par une préface sur l'attribution du conte à Cadmus de Milet et se poursuit par un chapitre très documenté sur l'établissement des colonies de la Grèce, dans l'Asie-Mineure. Le conte met en scène l'existence du jeune prince, fils du roi des Dorides, le conte étant prétexte, dans la tradition du conte philosophique, au dévoilement de certaines vérités. Le chevalier d'Arcq (1721-1795), fils naturel du Comte de Toulouse, joua un rôle non négligeable dans le domaine des idées au XVIIIe, notamment en s'intéressant de près aux problèmes économiques et sociaux, plus classiquement dans ce conte l'auteur traite des passions humaines et du pouvoir.

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

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).

Ex-Libris de la Bibliothèque du Château de Cruzol. +++++++ Nouvelle édition de 1754 comprenant 770 lettres de Madame de Sévigné à sa fille, donc plus complète que les premières éditions autorisées par la petite-fille de la Marquise de Sévigné. Pour rappel, la toute première édition en 2 volumes, et non autorisée, fut publiée en 1726 et ne comptait que 134 lettres. Ce ne fut qu&#39;en 1734 que Pauline de Grignan, marquise de Simiane, petite-fille de la célèbre marquise, remit les lettres manuscrites qu&#39;elle possédait à Perrin, un éditeur d&#39;Aix en Provence, avec le soin de leur publication. Ce dernier publia 402 lettres en 1734 et 212 lettres en 1737 (soit 614 au total). En fait lors de ces deux publications, il ne fut retenu que les lettres à la Comtesse de Grignan, et après une sélection, les manuscrits furent détruits. L&#39;édition de 1754 augmentée que nous présentons dans notre offre contient justement des lettres à d&#39;autres personnages, portant le nombre de lettres à 770 - Reliures en bon état, à noter un coin émoussé sur les tomes 2 et 5, petit manque du papier de garde sur le tome 8 (suite décollage de la page de garde fixée par étiquette d&#39;Ex-Libris), intérieur frais, Bel exemplaire..

        Autograph letter to M. Cabanis, 4pp. folio, discussing the type of knife to be used in a cancer operation

      Paris, 1754. <p>Louis, Antoine (1723-92). Autograph draft (probably incomplete) of a letter to Pierre Jean Georges Cabanis (1757-1808). 4pp. N.p., May 18, 1754. 260 x 186 mm. Creased where previously folded, some browning, tiny hole in first leaf not affecting text, otherwise very good. English translation included.</p><p> From the pioneer French medical jurisprudence authority (see G-M 1730-31) to a medical colleague, discussing the type and size of cutting instrument appropriate for removal of a cancerous tumor in the breast. Cabanis had been involved in a dispute over whether a smaller instrument, such as a lancet, was preferable to the razor recommended by several authorities for such an operation. The Royal Academy of Surgery had asked Louis to give his opinion on this matter, which he did in the present draft. Louis took Cabanis&#39;s side in preferring the smaller instrument, citing the writings of Delahaye, Garangeot and Fayet to back his judgment, while noting the opposing opinions of LeDran and Dionis.</p><p> "When one tries to understand the reasons and the different procedures expounded in the different methods of operating, one sees that the razor and the large knife are recommended only for cutting off the breast with one blow. . . .And if you have the memoirs of the Royal Academy of Surgery, vol. 1, page 681 in the quarto edition, you will read a memoir of M. Fayet of a tumor of the breast, you will see that one must have one&#39;s fingers in the incision made and the circumference of the tumor in order to judge the depth, the hardness and the way it is attached, in order to detach the tumor more easily. Since the removal of a cancer is a dissection, where each step is based on what one must do after it and it is the only was to precisely remove the whole body of the tumor, then how can one do this dissection with a large knife which will only serve to cut out, if I dare to speak this way, the cancer with one cut." </p>

        Dell'antica lira ferrarese di Marchesini detta volgarmente Marchesana. Dissertazione.

      Presso Bernardino Pomatelli,, in Ferrara, 1754 - In-4° (287x210mm), pp. IX, 208, legatura ottocentesca m. pelle marrone con dorso a 4 nervi decorati in oro con titolo in oro e filetti a freddo entro scomparti. Sguardie rosa. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero. Dedica a stampa al Conte Bartolomeo Masi e ai signori Savj del Maestrato di Ferrara. 84 xilografie di monete n.t. Testatine e capilettera incisi ornati o istoriati. Un timbro di possesso ottocentesco. Ottimo esemplare. Prima e unica edizione. Vincenzo Bellini (Giambulaga, Ferrara, 1708-ivi, 1783) fu parroco di Cassana, presso Bologna, dal 1737 al 1758, nonché illustre cultore di studi numismatici, storico, linguista e proprietario del fondo originario di monete ed antichità che costituì poi il nucleo del futuro Museo Civico di Ferrara. Si tratta d'un notevole esempio di "descrizione storica" d'una moneta ideale condotta, con acume e con diligenza, attraverso le vicende della sua circolazione, anche se una volta soltanto il suo vero valore è calcolato sul reale valore delle merci. Ogni documento pur minimamente utilizzabile viene attentamente esaminato in ogni sua parte; mentre le notizie di storia, invece che per delineare il quadro economico e politico in cui iscrivere le monete, sono riferite piuttosto per non procurar "tanto tedio" al letore." (Nicola Parise in D.B.I., VII, pp. 716-718). Ranghiasci, F/18: "È questa una dissertazione eruditissima nella quale si correggono il conte Carli circa il giusto valore della Lira de Marchesini ed il Muratori In somma la dissertaz. oltre ad essere arricchita di moltissime medaglie, è piena d&#146;importanti annotazioni riguardanti la storia civile di Ferrara Opera tanto in credito de&#146; dotti, tanto divenuta rara".

        Essai sur les Troubles Actuels de Perse, et de Géorgie

      Paris, Desaint & Saillant, , 1754. Par M. de P***. 12mo. (169 × 102mm) Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label, French fillet gilt to the boards, spine gilt with foliate volutes, indistinct arms to the tail, red edges. Small book-ticket of the geographer, translator, author and bibliophile Jean-Baptiste Eyriès (1767-1846) to the front pastedown. Two folding tables, engraved head- and tailpieces. Lightly browned, slightly rubbed at the extremities, one folding table cropped at the head, upper joint a little cracked at the head, but overall a very good copy, half title bound in. First Edition. "Attribué à de Peyssonel père, qui peut en avoir fourni les matériaux, mais la rédaction semble appartenir au fils." The elder Peyssonel held a number of consular positions in the Near East, being for some years at Smyrna and in 1753 in the Crimea, his son served in a similar capacity at Smyrna and was for some time Consul to the Khan of the Tartars. Erekle II, perhaps better known by the Latinized form Heraclius, and his father Teimuraz had been made de facto rulers of Georgia - Erekle of Kakheti, Teimuraz of Kartli - for their suppression of Abdulla Beg&#39;s 1745 Mukhranian coup against Persian rule. However, they still paid heavy tributes to Nadir Shah and when he was assassinated in 1747 they took advantage of the political instability in Persia to eject the occupying garrisons. In the years that followed they suppressed a further rising by the Mukhranians, concluded an anti-Persian alliance with the khans of Azerbaijan, and made overtures to the Russians for their support for an invasion of Persia. On Teimuraz&#39;s death in 1762, Erekle succeeded him in Kartli, uniting politically for the first time in 300 years. Uncommon, OCLC shows just four copies in the USA, only three on COPAC.
