        Drop-title: Catalogue des Livres de feu Monsieur le President de Segur.

      29, [1] pp. 8vo, later red morocco, triple gilt fillet round sides, spine finely gilt, a.e.g. [Paris: Gabriel Martin, 9 Sept. 1755 & following days]. The extremely rare sale catalogue of the library of Nicolas Alexandre Ségur (1697-1755), "the Prince des Vignes." The Marquis de Ségur "owned the two first-growths of Lafite and Latour, plus Mouton (now first-growth), the great estate of Calon-Ségur in St-Estèphe and other properties in the Médoc and Graves. Louis XV dubbed him the Prince des Vignes, after being told that the (apparently diamond) buttons of his coat were the precious stones of his vineyard, cut and polished... "While most talk of this exceptionally prosperous man concentrates on his income, it should be remembered that it was he who drew the definite boundaries between the land of Lafite and the neighbouring Mouton, thus creating two profoundly different styles of wine. He undoubtedly ran his estates with great zeal and gave their reputations the solid foundation that has never foundered."-Hugh Johnson, Vintage: The Story of Wine, p. 257. This is one of Gabriel Martin's later catalogues (he died in 1761). The library consists of 56 lots but with many titles separately listed within each lot (totaling about 600 separate items), each priced. The library was rich in literature, theater, music, and opera. The sale took place at the "hôtel" of the Marquis on the Place de Louis le Grand (now the Place Vendôme) in Paris. A very fine copy; WorldCat locates only the BnF copy. Armorial bookplate of Louis de la Forets, Comte d'Armaillé and another. .

        The Journal of a Voyage to Lisbon

      London: Printed for A. Millar, 1755, 1755. First edition (initially suppressed). Cross, pages 326-327; NCBEL II, 931. Several of the signatures and leaves are a little browned; edges slightly rubbed; very good copy.. 12mo, later panelled calf by Zaehnsdorf, red and brown morocco labels, gilt decorations and lettering, a.e.g. With half-title. The last published work by Henry Fielding (1707-1754), a lively account of his journey by ship to Portugal where he soon after died and was buried. There are two versions of the text, as is well recorded by Cross and others: the first was apparently suppressed, and a heavily corrected second version was then printed and published. The first version is known as the "Francis" issue; it ends on page 245; and the second is the "Humphrys" issue; it ends on page 228. On November 1, 1755 a deadly earthquake, tsunami, and fire destroyed much of Lisbon, and there was a unexpected new demand for Fielding's posthumous work. The publisher Andrew Millar then met the demand by issuing copies using the original suppressed sheets. See Cross, volume three, pages 85-92.

        Johnson's Dictionary

      England, 1755. London, W. Strahan et al., 1755, First Edition. 2 volumes, folio 41.9 x 26,4 cm (16-1/2inches x 10-3/8 inches). Titles in red and black, all but the preface set in two columns. First edition of Johnson's Dictionary. This work has at various times been called "the most important British cultural monument of the eighteenth century" (Hitchings); "the only dictionary [of the English language] compiled by a writer of the first rank " (Robert Burchfield) and first genuinely descriptive dictionary in any language. Samuel Johnson's monumental work, which drew on all the best ideas and aspects of earlier dictionaries, was published on April 15, 1755 in an edition of 2000 copies. The price was a high one 4 10s, or 3 10s to the trade. The group of publishers whose names appear in the imprint were joint proprietors, having paid Johnson 1575 in installments for a copy, which took him eight years to complete. Some of Johnson's advance was used to rent the well-known house in 17 Gough Square, where the garret became his "dictionary work-shop". He called on the assistance of six amanuenses, five of whom, Boswell proudly records, were Scotsmen, and who were almost derelict when he hired them. "With no real library at hand, Johnson wrote the definitions of over 40,000 words... illustrating the senses in which these words could be used by including about 114,000 quotations drawn from English writing in every field of learning during the two centuries from the middle of the Elizabethan period down to his own time" (W. Jackson Bate, Samuel Johnson (New York, 1977), p.247. "It is the dictionary itself which justifies Noah Webster's statement that Johnson's writings had, in philology, the effect which Newton's discoveries had in mathematics. Johnson introduced into English lexicography principles which had already been accepted in Europe, but were quite novel in mid-eighteenth-century England. He codified the spelling of English words; he gave full and lucid definitions of their meanings (often entertainingly colored by his High Church and Tory propensities); and he adduced extensive and apt illustrations from a wide range of authoritative writers...but despite the progress made during the past two centuries in historical and comparative philology, Johnson's book may still be consulted for instruction as well as pleasure" (PMM). The Dictionary was issued with two title-pages, identifying the volumes as "I" and "II," and is usually divided between the letters "K" and "L", as here. . First Edition. Very Good.

        Catalogo degli antichi monumenti dissotterrati dalla discoperta citta di Ercolano per ordine della maestá di Carlo re delle due Sicilie, [.], composto e steso da monseigneur Ottavio Antonio Bayardi.

      - Naples, nella regia stamperia di S. M., 1755. Imperial folio (490 x 400 mm). (4),+ XXII,+ 447 pp. Title with engraved vignette. Near contemporary marbled full calf, richly gilt spine with raised bands and green title and part title labels, red edges. Spine defective at top. Garcia 1414. Furchheim p. 7. Blackmer 97. The somewhat unfortunate scholar Ottavio Antonio Bayardi (1694-1764) was forced to publish this catalogue after his failure with the ?Prodromo delle antichità d?Ercolano? And when the prime minister Bernardo Tanuccio founded the Accademia Ercolanese - in the same year - Bayardi was fired from his position as sole publisher of material from the excavations. Soon he also came to be replaced by Berardo Galiani as member of the Accademia. This catalogue consists of a list of all the finds made in Herculaneum and Pompeii and it is published as a pre-catalogue to the planned large ?Le antichita d'Ercolano eposte? The catalogue, however, offers only the listing and a brief description of the artefacts. The title vignette is after Camillo Paderni and engraved by Antonio Piaggio. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Relacion de la valorosa defensa de los naturals Bisayas del pueblo de Palompong en la Ysla de Leyte, de la Provincia de Catbalogan en las Yslas Philipinas, que hicieron contra las Armas Mahometanas de Ylanos, y Malanos, en el mes de junio de 1754

      1755 - An extremely rare Philippine imprint on native defence against piracy. 1755. Manila. Imprenta en la Compania de Jesus. In 8vo (200 mm x 135 mm). 14 pp. Recent calf. Printed on rice paper; lightly browned; a very good copy. First edition. The account of the ‘brave defense of the native Vesayans in the town of Polompong on the island of Leyte, who fought against the Muslims from Ilanos and Melanaoes’ was most probably a first hand account by the local Jesuit priest. There were several incursions by the Moros on the island of Leyte in 1754 which prior to this incident resulted in the burning to the ground of its two largest towns – Sogod and Maasim – and other villages. This account describes how the residents of Palompon defended themselves after having sought refuge in the local church. Although the town was pillaged and houses burnt to the ground, most of its inhabitants escaped death or capture for enslavement. The stone church, which had to be large enough to hold the entire community in worship, was also large enough to protect them all in a siege. Bibliotheca Filipina, 2296. Streit VI 1099.

Tanning and toning to pages. Loss to head of fep and rear corner of last page. <Br> Kenrick's most successful work, reprinted in over 20 editions, was a courtesy book originally published in 1753. but the author was simply listed as "A Lady." Kenrick here assumed the persona of a fallen woman, now reformed, who wants to persuade other women to live a life of virtue. The irony of Kenrick's presuming to improve the moral tone of feminine England has not gone unnoticed: he has been described as "one of London's most despised, drunken, and morally degenerate hack writers in the later eighteenth century.

        "A system of moral philosophy. In three books ... published from the original manuscript, by his son Francis Hutcheson, M.D. To which is prefixed some account of the life, writings, and character of the author..."

      Glasgow: printed and sold by R. & A. Foulis...London: sold by A. Millar...and T. Longman. 1755. "First edition, 2 volumes, 4to, pp. [12], xlviii, 358; [4], 380; contemporary full calf neatly rebacked, red and black morocco labels on spines; board edges dry and peeling, corners restored; the binding is sound and the text is clean; a good, sound copy. Among the subscribers is Adam Smith (a student of Hutcheson's at Glasgow who took two sets), and Lord Kaims. ""Hutcheson was a close follower of the third Lord Shaftesbury, and had a great influence upon the Scottish philosophers of the 'common-sense' school. His first essays were directed against the selfish and cynical theories of Hobbes and Mandeville. He adopted and developed the 'moral sense' doctrine as given by Shaftesbury in contrast to the egoistic utilitarianism of his time...he was apparently the first writer to use Bentham's phrase, 'the greatest happiness of the greatest number'...[and] He may be thus classed as one of the first exponents of a decided utilitarianism as distinguished from 'egoistic hedonism'"" (DNB).

        Den Haag, Loosduinseweg - Hendrik Florisz. Scheurleer, 1755-1761.

      Kopergravure vervaardigd door Iven Besoet en uitgegeven 1755-1761 door Hendrik Florisz. Scheurleer. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent): ca. 28,5 x 40,5 cm.De Westeinderbrug over de West Singelsgracht, gezien vanaf de weg naar Loosduinen. Links en rechts resp. de Heeremolen en de Zuidmolen. Aan de overzijde van de brug een gezicht door het Westeinde met in het verschiet de Grote of St. Jacobskerk. Op de voorgrond rechts de brug naar de weg aan de overzijde van de Lijnbaan.De Haagse uitgever en boekverkoper Hendrik Florisz. Scheurleer (1692-1768) speelde in op de populariteit van het stadsgezicht in het midden van de 18de eeuw. Hij publiceerde een reeks van achttien uiterst informatieve gezichten van Den Haag en directe omgeving die hij allemaal aan Haagse burgemeesters, baljuws of secretarissen opdroeg. Ze zijn gegraveerd door Iven Besoet (ca. 1720-1769) een uit Leiden afkomstige kunstenaar. Dat de reeks een succes was, mag blijken uit de diverse kopieën (meestal optica-prenten) die er naar zijn gemaakt. Of Besoet er goed aan heeft verdiend, is echter zeer de vraag, want als we de biografieën mogen geloven werd hij wegens wanbetaling zijn huis uitgezet, waarna hij, gehuld in een deken, op straat verbleef en korte tijd later overleed.Prijs: € 975,- (incl. lijst) .

        Vida de la venerable madre Michaela Josepha de la Purificacion. Religiosa de velo, y choro de el observantissimo Convento de Señor San Joseph de Carmelitas descalzas de la ciudad de la Puebla, de el que fue cinco vezes priora.

      Puebla: Por la viuda de Miguel de Ortega y Bonilla [i.e., Manuel Cerezo], en el Portal de las Flores Small 4to (20 cm; 7.875"). [9] ff., 90 pp.. 1755 Manuela Cerezo, widow of Miguel de Ortega y Bonilla, received the commission from Domingo Pantaleon Alvarez de Abreu, the bishop of Puebla, to print this work at his expense. His coat of arms, in a large woodcut, appears at the head of the dedication that Miqueorena wrote in his cell in the monastery at Carrion, in the Atlixco Valley. Undoubtedly it was also in that cell that Miqueorena, a Mercedarian who was the comendador of the Carmelite monastery at Carrion, wrote this biography of the five-time prioress of the convent of Discalced Carmelite nuns in Puebla. That convent (Convento de San Jose) was the order's first in Mexico, established in 1604, just eleven years after St. Theresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross founded the order in Spain. Mother Michaela Josepha de la Purificación (1681–1753) was a native of Puebla, born into a well-to-do family, and one of two daughters who entered religious life. Miqueorena knew Mother Michaela and helped her in a supervisory way, so his biography is based on both oral history and personal knowledge. Needless to say, he emphasizes her religiosity, her relation with God, and her humility and works of charity, but he also underscores aspects of => individuality. For example she had a gift of prophecy and an emotionally moving of saying prayers aloud. The work is printed in double-column format, in roman type with chapter summaries in italic. The title-page has an ornamental border composed of printer's flowers, other typographic flowers are used to create a head-piece on p.1, there is a nice use of initials, and the work ends with a woodcut tail-piece offering flowers in a bowl. Contemporary limp vellum with evidence of ties. A very good copy.

        Hoc est, puncta aliquot compendiosa, quae circa gubernationem Reipubl. observanda videntur.

      Wien, Ghelen, 1755. 16°. 2 Bll., 135 (1) S., Ldr. d. Zt. m. handschriftl. Rückenschildchen u. dreiseitig gespränkeltem Rotschnitt. Äusserst seltener Nachdruck dieses erstmals 1632 bei Gregor Gelbhaar in Wien erschienenen Fürstenspiegels, der für den österreichischen Hof des 17. Jahrhunderts von großer Bedeutung war. So war man bis zum Erscheinen von Oswald Redlichs Aufsatz „Princeps in compendio. Ein Fürstenspiegel vom Wiener Hofe aus dem 17. Jahrhundert“ der Ansicht, Kaiser Ferdinand II. habe dieses Werk selbst für seinen jüngeren Sohn Leopold Wilhelm verfaßt. Als weiterer möglicher Verfasser wurde Wilhelm Lamormaini ins Spiel gebracht, was aber von Redlich ebenfalls für unwahrscheinlich gehalten wird. Jedenfalls ist die Schrift um 1630 im engeren Umkreis des Kaiserhofes entstanden und war von seinem Erscheinen bis zu Joseph II. bei der Prinzenerziehung prägend. - „Der ‚Princeps in compendio‘ - so ist das kleine Werk benannt - ist selbst ein Nachfolger jener Fürstenspiegel, durch die ein junger Herrscher in die theoretischen und praktischen Prinzipien des Regierens eingeführt werden sollte. 1632 war dieses Büchlein zum erstenmal , offenbar in so kleiner Auflage gedruckt worden, daß Peter Lambeck, der Hofbibliothekar Kaiser Leopolds I., im Jahre 1667 um die Bewilligung ansuchte, es neu herausgeben zu dürfen, was 1668 auch geschah. Gottlieb Eucharius Rinck, der Biograph Leopolds, machte einige Jahrzehnte später auf die Bedeutung aufmerksam, die mittlerweile der Princeps in compendio erlangt hatte als ‚diejenige Richtschnur, wonach jetzund alle oesterreichischen Prinzen in der Regierungskunst unterwiesen werden‘ und als das Handbuch des Kaisers ‚seit seiner Regierung‘“ (A. Coreth, Pietas Austriaca, S. 9f.). - 1701 erschien eine dt. Übersetzung unter dem Titel „Princeps in compendio, Das ist: etliche kurtze zusammen gefaste Puncte oder Reguln, welche ein Regent bey seiner Regierung zu beobachten nöthig hat“. - Die Österreichische Nationalbibliothek besitzt nur den Nachdruck von 1668 und auch sonst ist diese Ausgabe über KVK etc. nicht nachweisbar. - Einband leicht berieben bzw. bestoßen. Oberes Kapital m. winziger Fehlstelle. Vorsatzbl. mit alter Eintragung („Auctor huius libelli fertur Ferdinandus III. [...]“). Titel m. Besitzvermerk. Titel verso m. mont. zeitgen. gest.
