        Account of American Affairs: Relation of the late action in Virginia and Capitulation with the French. A republication of an account of the Colonel George Washington's Battle at Fort Necessity and his subsequent "Captulation."

      D. Henry and R. Cave, London 1754 - 2-page article within the entire September edition of The Gentleman's Magazine. Removed from a bound volume. Tight binding with clean pages. Very light wear. One of the earliest descriptions of the action at Fort Necessity in the Great Meadows of the Ohio which forced Colonel Washington's force of 400 to withdraw. Printed shortly after the first account in the Virginia Gazette. This article (which pre-dates a French account published in the 4 October edition of Le Courrier in Avignon) also includes an English translation of the terms of Washington's capitulation signed in print by the French Commander, Louis Coulon de Villers, that accuses Washington's force of assassinating a French officer (de Villers brother) while he was bearing a diplomatic "citation." Washington's acceptance of these terms, which has been attributed to a poor translation by a Dutch trader who accompanied Washington's force, created a major scandal in both France and England and led directly to the Seven Years War, of which the American French and Indian War was one of the theaters. The English author, Horace Walpole, famously wrote of this event, "The volley fired by a young Virginian in the backwoods of America set the world on fire." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Francisci Ficoronii, Reg. Lond. Acad. Socii, dissertatio de larvis scenicis et figuris comicis antiquorum romanorum ex italica in latinam linguam versa. Editio secunda, auctior et emendatior

      Roma, Sumptibus Venantii Monaldini, typis Angeli Rotilii, 1754. 4to. (XII),115,(5 index) p., 85 engraved plates, of which 1 folding. H.calf 29 cm (Ref: Brunet 2,1245; Sandys 2,380; Ebert 7528) (Details: Spine with 5 gilt and ruled raised bands, second compartment with lettered red morocco label; title in red & black; engraving on title: a man with a pig's head on the run in a landscape; engraved headpiece and initial on first page; the 85 engravings by Francesco Marroni and Silvio Pomarede show masks and actors wearing masks; the engravings are after ancient mosaics, gemmae, cameos, paintings, bronzes etc.; paper with wide uncut margins) (Condition: Cover scuffed; small piece at head of spine gone; back with crackles; round bookplate on front pastedown) (Note: 'The early 18th century saw an exceptionally active international trade in ancient coins and antiquities and the formation of a number of significant collections assembled by aristocratic amateurs, scholarly gentlemen and cunning dealers throughout Europe. The centre of the antiquities trade was Rome, teeming with dealers who purchased the many coins, gems and other objects found daily in excavations in the city or in the fields of the Roma campagna'. (J. Spier & J. Kagan, 'Sir Charles Frederick and the forgery of ancient coins in 18th century Rome', (Journal of the history of collections 12,1 (2000) p. 35) This was the biotope of the Italian Francesco de Ficoroni, 1664-1747, one of the most prominent antiquaries at the beginning of the 18th century, who combined the trade in antiquities with serious archaeological, antiquarian and topographical research. He was the Roman antiquary best known to English visitors, who acted also as scholarly guide and trader for wealthy gentlemen, students and scholars on their Grand Tour through Italy. His latest work, 'Vestigia, e rarità di Roma antica' (1744), was in fact a kind of guidebook, which supplied an instructive conspectus of the topography and the monuments. For his researches and services he was made Fellow of the Royal Society in London. Ficoroni sold antiquities to a vast number of collectors, e.g. the king of Poland, for whom he acquired the collection of Roman sculpture, now in Dresden. He earned his eternal fame, and the eternal gratitude of Italy, as the discoverer and first owner of the so-called bronze 'Ficoroni cista' of Praeneste, a funerary object which is now in the Villa Giulia at Rome. He did not want to sell this vessel, not even for a fortune, to the above mentioned Sir Charles Frederick, but it was his wish that it would always stay in Rome, to be admired in the Collegio Romano. He was not always an impeccable philanthropist, or honest trader, for he had on occasion troubles with the authorities for dubious transactions, e.g. trading in stolen goods, or illegally excavated objects. In 1736 Ficoroni published in Rome a richly illustrated monography on theatrical comic masks and comic figures in Roman art, 'Le maschere sceniche e le figure comiche d'antichi Romani, brevemente descritti'. In 1750 a Latin translation of this work was produced. Our copy is the second and best edition of that Latin translation. All the masks and other objects are discussed in detail. The engravings were made by Silvio Pomarede and Francesco Marroni. (Both Ficoroni and his 'cista Ficoroni' have their own lemma in Wikipedia, but the above mentioned article, with a nice portrait of Ficoroni, is much more informative. One can find it on: http://www.academia.edu/877012/Sir_Charles_Frederick_and_the_forgery_of_ancient_coins_in_eighteenth-century_Rome. It should be added that Ficoroni had nothing to do with the forgery of ancient coins)) (Provenance: On the front pastedown pasted an armorial bookplate: 'E Bibliotheca A.C. de Novavilla'. The plate shows a winged helmet with an eagle (griffin?) on top; below the helmet a shield with a cross having an ancre in its centre; in the 4 quarters a tower. The coat of arms is probably of one 'Neville', or 'Neuville'; the lithographed bookplate seems to be English) (Collation: a6, A - P4, 85 plates. Plates 40 & 41 have been switched.)

        A Treatise on Ship-Building and Navigation. In Three Parts. Wherein the Theory, Practice and Application of all Instruments are Perspiciously Handled... to Which is Added an English Abridgement of Another Treatise... Lately Published at Paris by M. Duhamel

      London, 1754. b/w copper plate engravings, many double page and folding. 4to. (2), iv, (8), (3)-268, 73, (1), (4), 70 pp. Rare first edition of this English treatise on shipbuilding. The addition of Duhamel du MonceauÂ’s work adds the latest in continental thinking. MacDonald calls it, “The most comprehensive and scholarly work on naval architecture in English until the publications of Steel at the end of the century.” - MacDonald 264. Scott, 270. This edition is much harder to find than the second edition, published in 1765. Eighteen black and white copper engravings; fifteen folding, two double folding, and an Analemma, a volvelle navigational aide, with its delicate parts intact and fully functional. With occasional contemporary penned marginalia, and the ownership signature of JnÂ’o Jones dated May 8th, 1754 on the first page of Part I. The 18 copperplates show a little tanning and offsetting, but are generally clean. The volvelle, plate XII, is complete and operational, with all its delicate parts intact. Quite unusual thus. Besides, where else are you going to find the word “perspiciously” in a title? Bound in old calf, superbly rebacked and recornered to match with the original spine label preserved.

        Veduta della Piazza e Chiesa di S Giovannino de P P Gesuiti e de Palazzi dei S S Marchese Riccardi e Panciatichi.

      Florence 1754 - Original double-page copper engraved plate (num. XIX), excellent condition with wide margins. T XIX Original plate for "Scelta di 24 Vedute di Firenze" by the 'Piranesi of Florence' - his spectacular views of the jewel-city of Tuscany have been equaled by no other artist. In 1744 the Marchese Gerini commissioned Zocchi's main work, as a memento for the many visitors to Florence. The series, which was re-issued in 1754, is considered unrivalled, not only documenting the beauty and serenity of the city, but also infusing each view with anecdotal scenes of every day life. Different copper engravers in various workshops have etched these fine, extra-large folio prints. The images measure ca. 46.5 x 67 cm and, since they were once bound in a book, have a centerfold.

        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.

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 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.

      . 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. 239-240 - - Lindeboom Nr. 76; *(Nr.75 (1734) weltweit nicht nachweis bar)
