        L'Isthme de l'Acadie, Baye du Beaubassin, en Anglois Shegnekto. Environs du Fort Beausejour

      Paris: Chez le Rouge, rue des Augustins, 1755. Copper-etched map, in excellent condition except for old folds. An important and very rare map that depicts the first battle of the French and Indian War in Canada The Chignecto isthmus was the location of a dividing line between the British region of Nova Scotia and the French territory. The French built Fort Beausejour on the Aulac Ridge early in 1750. The British in response constructed Fort Lawrence (called here Ft. St. Laurent) on the ridge immediately to the east across the tidal Missaquash River. This was generally accepted as the boundary between the territories, although France and England never agreed upon an official boundary. With the construction of Fort Gaspereau at Baye Verte on the shores of the Northumberland Strait, France gained effective control of travel on the Acadian isthmus. The population of the isthmus was still largely Acadian, though the English were actively trying to colonize. The Earl of Halifax had established the port town of Halifax with this in mind in 1749. The map thus establishes the context of the brief battle described below. Tensions deriving from King George's War (1745-48) had never been resolved in the region and both sides were actively trying to undermine the other. The British forces described in the account below consisted of two New England volunteer battalions and one regular British detachment. William Shirley, Governor of Massachusetts, seems to have been one of the primary provocateurs in the confrontation. "The Battle of Fort Beauséjour marked the opening of a British offensive in the French and Indian War (the North American theater of the Seven Years' War). Beginning June 3, 1755, a British army under Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Monckton staged out of nearby Fort Lawrence, besieged the small French garrison at Fort Beauséjour with the goal of opening the Isthmus of Chignecto to British control. After two weeks of siege, Louis Du Pont Duchambon de Vergor, the fort's commander, capitulated on June 16. In June 1755, Lieutenant-Colonel Monckton, commanding a fleet of 31 transports and three Royal Navy warships carrying 270 British regular troops (from the 43rd Regiment of Foot) and 2,000 New England militia, entered Cumberland Basin. The ships dropped anchor at the mouth of the Missaguash River and the British forces were able to land unopposed. Using the nearby British outpost of Fort Lawrence (about three kilometers (2 miles) to the east) as a staging area, Monckton then proceeded to the top of Aulac Ridge. The British offensive began on June 3, with Monckton carefully and methodically advancing on the French fortification from the north. When his forces were close enough on June 13, Monckton began a bombardment with 13 inch mortars. Although the commander of the fort, the Marquis Louis Du Pont Duchambon de Vergor, defied the British for two weeks, there was little the French could realistically do against the numerically superior British forces. On June 16, British mortar fire breached the walls of the fortification and badly mauled the French garrison. De Vergor had little choice but to surrender. The next day, the French abandoned nearby Fort Gaspareaux, severing communications between Acadia and ÃŽle Royale (Cape Breton Island), and leaving the British forces in control of the frontier between Nova Scotia and Acadia." (Wikipedia). The aftermath of the relatively minor siege and battle was enormous. Under the pretext of requiring unconditional allegiance to George II, the New England militia forcibly removed 14,000 Acadians from Acadia, about 75% of the French speaking population. This, known as the Great Expulsion, was perhaps the first instance in modern history of an ethnic removal. Jefferys published a version of this map, also in 1755, Shegnecto Bay. A large and particular Plan of Shegnecto Bay .... and the circumjacent country; with the forts and settlements of the French, till dispossessed by the English in June 1755 : Drawn on the spot by an officer, the map dated August . (Phillips p.233). It is not clear which map came first. The LeRouge map is clearly the French version, with French names given priority. Both maps were issued soon after the results of the battle were known. Very few examples of the map have been found. One is in the Bibliotheque et Archives Canada. And an example is listed in an 1889 map catalogue: Le bibliophile americain with the comment: "Très jolie carte gravée à l'eau forte." Catalogue of New-York State Library: 1856. Maps, Manuscripts, Engravings, Coins, &c. (Albany: 1857). p.78; Anderson, The Crucible of War p. 112-114; Chris M. Hand The Siege of Fort Beausejour 1755 (Fredericton: 2004).

        Theatrum botanicum: The theater of plantes. Or, an herball of a large extent ...

      London: Thomas Cotes Folio (35.3 cm, 13.9"). Add. engr. t.-p., [18], 1755 (i.e., 1745), [3] pp.; illus.. 1640 First edition: Over 3,000 species and their virtues described for the use of apothecaries and herbalists. Parkinson (1567?-1650), who served officially as Royal Botanist to Charles I and unofficially as gardening mentor to his queen, Henrietta Maria, was also one of the founders of the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries — to which the allegorical frontispiece here may refer with the rhinoceros in its upper portion. The author of Paradisi in sole paradisus terrestris, Parkinson was much acclaimed by his contemporaries and by later botanists; Henrey cites Sir James Edward Smith's assessment that "this work [the Theatrum botanicum] and the herbal of Gerarde were the two main pillars of botany in England till the time of Ray." Gerard and Parkinson indeed competed in publication, with the printing of the present work having been delayed several years so as to avoid marketplace clash with Johnson's edition of Gerard's herbal. In the present work, Parkinson divided the plants by classes such as "Sweete smelling Plants," "Purging Plants," saxifrages, wound herbs, cooling herbs, "Strange and Outlandish Plants," etc. Most of the entries are illustrated with in-text woodcuts, interspersed with pages wholly occupied by four images. Among the Americana content here are descriptions of Virginia bluebells, Peruvian mechacan, potatoes, and an assortment of "Ginny peppers" (with dire warnings regarding their fiery hotness); also present are => 28 previously unrecorded British species, including the strawberry tree and the lady's slipper orchid. The index and tables are organized by Latin name, English name, and medicinal property. Provenance: Front pastedown with John Ruskin's Brantwood ex-libris, and with bookplate of American zoologist Charles Atwood Kofoid; additional engraved title-page with inked inscription "Ex bibliotheca Mathiae Lynen, Londini," dated 1641. A cheque drawn on Prescott Dinsdale Cave Tugwell & Co. by Joanna Ruskin Severn on Ruskin's behalf is tipped in. Contemporary speckled calf framed in blind double fillets, spine with gilt-stamped red leather title-label; much worn with front joint open, hinges (inside) reinforced with linen tape, old refurbishments including shellacking. Front pastedown and engraved title-page reinforced, the latter by attachments to endpaper and title-page; preface leaf partly separated; first and last leaves generally tattered and a few others with marginal paper flaws, one affecting a few letters and a small portion of one image. Occasional marginal tears, one just touching text; three small ink spots to one leaf, touching two images, else scattered spots only; one spread with ink blot (possibly printer's) obscuring portions of five words. Some corners bumped, and index leaves creased with three partly split along creases; final table leaf and errata leaf with old repairs costing a few words. Some pagination erratic and pp. 845?-48 laid in, supplied from a smaller-margined copy; front free endpaper with pencilled annotations regarding this copy. A worn and pored-over yet respectable copy of this important 17th-century herbal, with => nice English and American provenance suggesting who did some of the poring.

        A New Map of Jamaica, In which the Several Towns, Forts, and Settlements are accurately laid down...the Greatest part drawn or corrected from actual surveys made by Mr. Sheffield and others, from the year 1730 to the year 1749

      London, 1755. Copper-engraved wall map with inset: "A General Plan of Port Royal" by J. Bayly, on two joined sheets, with original outline colour, in very good condition. An unrecorded state of the "The first large-scale map of Jamaica" This large, dramatic map of Jamaica, the first large scale map of the island, corresponds to the new importance and interest the island had for the British due to the vast fortunes compiled in sugar and slaves. This map, which includes topographical details and some roads, shows the sites of many sugar plantations, most of which were located in the southeast near the harbors. Kapp notes two states, the first with the imprint of John and Carrington Bowles (1755), the second with that of Carrington Bowles and Robert Wilkinson (1790). This example has no imprint, but still bears the date 1755. It is probably an intermediate state between those listed by Kapp. Aside from the lack of imprint, this example is identical to Kapp's first state. The map is the most detailed and exact for Jamaica published to its time. It locates "Gentleman's Seats," sugar works, churches, taverns, "crawls," "ginger, coffee, and indigo settlements," barracks, etc. The large inset shows both the portion of Port Royal destroyed in the earthquake of 1692, and that part which was still standing. Twenty-four sites in the town are identified by key. Patrick Browne was an Irish physician, who traveled extensively, settling in Jamaica in 1746. He had a keen interest in botany and history, and he published "A Civil and Natural History of Jamaica" in 1756, with plant illustrations by Georg Ehret. Sellers & Van Ee, Maps & Charts of North America & West Indies , 1916; See Kit Kapp, "The Printed Maps of Jamaica up to 1825," (MCS 42), 71, plate 25 (first state.)

        A View of New Palace Yard Westminster: Veüe de New Palace Yard a Westminster

      London: Published by John Boydell Engraver at the Unicorn the corner of Queen Street in Cheapside, 1755. Engraving with original colour. Very good condition. A wonderful "vue d'optique" of Westminster London with stunning early colour. During the eighteenth century "vues d'optique" or "perspective views" became extremely popular in England and Europe. Like other optical prints they capitalized on a connoisseur market eager for the latest novelty. English publishers such as John Bowles and Robert Sayer had great success with these optical views, which quickly developed into a collecting craze that swept through print shops on both sides of the Channel. "Vues d'optiques" were specifically designed to create the illusion of perspective when viewed with a zograscope or perspective glass. These viewing devices used a series of reflecting mirrors to enhance the illusion of depth in the print, creating a veritable "view" for the onlooker. Typically these prints depicted city or landscape views, and were horizontal in format. They had roughly the same dimensions and were sold with heavy opaque colouring, so as to show the tints when viewed through the lens. In their heyday, optical prints were a technical revolution; they could be seen in almost every fashionable drawing room, and were enjoyed by the poorer classes in print shops or at traveling fairs. For a small fee the citizens of Europe and England could travel the world without leaving their village. The "vue d'optique" was the first medium to bring the visible appearance of the wider world to a large European public. Ironically the artists and engravers who created these prints rarely had first hand knowledge of the scenes depicted, hence the views were often not as accurate as they were advertised to be. As a result of their constant handling optical prints such as these are rare, especially in good condition. They are not only beautiful images but also a fascinating glimpse into the history of printmaking. John Boydell was one of the most influential figures in the history of English printmaking. He was not only an accomplished engraver and an industrious publisher, but also a print seller who came to dominate the English print trade. He is best known as the originator of the Shakespeare Gallery , which made him one of the most successful print-sellers of his time. Clayton, The English Print 1688-1802 , 140-14.

        Partie Orientale de la Nouvelle France ou du Canada

      [Paris: Bellin], 1755. Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Bellin's foundation map of eastern Canada. First issued in 1744, Kershaw has identified 4 editions of the map, with multiple states, by Bellin (plus a subsequent re-issue by Homann Heirs). The present map is an example of the final state by Bellin. "Numerous changes have been made to the plate, notably the left-hand corner, west and south of Lake Champlain, has been completely re-engraved, with changes to the Saint Lawrence River, Lake Ontario, Cape Cod ... Notably 'la Pointe Riche' has been added towards the top of the west coast of Newfoundland, somewhat surprising for a French map" (Kershaw). Importantly, this map would be the basis for many future mappings of the region, including those by Homann Heirs, Bowen, Jefferys and Turner.

        Le Mouton Favori

      Paris: chez l'Auteur, rue S. Jacques, au dessus des Jacobins, 1755. Engraving. Printed on laid paper with watermark. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed on the bottom margin below the publication line. Small tear on right margin. Trimmed just outside platemark on top edge. Image size: 17 3/16 x 14 1/16 inches. A charming Rococo print by the Parisian engraver Robert Gaillard, after the celebrated genre painter Charles Eisen. Charles Eisen (1720-1778) was renowned for his charming genre paintings, which were immensely popular with an art market eager for romantic images. Eisen's charm and grace, as well as his considerable talent, brought him to the attention of the King's mistress, Madame du Pompadour. Through her influence Eisen soon became a popular Court painter and a professor at the Acadèmie de Saint-Luc. Eisen was granted the honor of instructing Madame Pompadour in drawing, a privilege, which insured court favours as well as aristocratic patronage. Like Boucher, Eisen rejuvenated the 'pastoral tradition' in French art. His idealic images are wonderful examples of the decorative paintings and prints that would have adorned the walls of aristocratic homes across France. Here, Eisen depicts a young couple seated in a woodland setting, clearly enthralled with one another The man, who is obviously a shepherd, places a rose into his lover's hair while she threads a ribbon around the neck of the favored lamb. A goat wither her kids resting on her on one side, a devoted dog on the other, add to the general atmosphere of affection. All of nature seems to yearn for the happiness and union of the young couple, and so, like many Rococo pastoral scenes, it is symbolic rather than literal, an emblem of the transformative power of love. The common view that scenes like these are saccharine and sentimental completely misses the point. Le Blanc, Manuel de L'Amateur D'Estampes , p. 261, No. 47.

      Mexico: En la Nueva Imprenta del Real, y Mas Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso 4to (20 cm; 8"). [24], 328 pp., illus.. 1755 Noted Jesuit author Francisco de Florencia (1619?-95) has the distinction of being one of the earliest known Florida-born authors. His writings are numerous and his best focus on Mariology. The work at hand is the first published survey of shrines in Mexico relating to Mary and her Apparitions. The manuscript remained unpublished at Florencia's death and it fell to fellow Jesuit and Mariologist Juan Antonio de Oviedo to update, edit, and publish it for the first time in 1755. Provenance: 18th-century signature on title-page of "Zelana," and early 19th-century one of "Dr. Osorio" on same page. Late 19th- or early 20th-century booklabel of a Mexican bookstore (obliterated); remnants of an early 20th-century American label stating the book had been disinfected before importation. This copy has added to it a full-page engraving of the Virgin of Guadalupe, dated 1763, from the burin of early Mexican engraver => Jose Benito Ortuno. It has been pasted to the obverse of the title-page. 19th-century quarter leather Mexican binding with blue and black mottled paper sides, heavily rubbed on the paper areas; spine leather dry and missing a small piece at base of spine with front joint slightly rubbed. Title-page sometime removed, image of the Virgin pasted to back as above, and the whole tipped back in with attachment to next leaf. Occasional spotting or staining in some margins; worming in inner margins at middle of the text block, not costing any letters. => A good copy with a very pleasing graphic addition.

        Carolinae Floridae nec non Insularum Bahamensium cum partibus adjacendibus delineato ad exemplar Londinense in lucem edita

      Nuremberg: Seligmann, 1755. Copper-engraved map, with full original hand colouring, in good condition apart from an expertly repaired split to the fold. A fine copy of the first and only Continental edition of a Map of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands, here with particularly fine period hand-colouring. The English edition of this map (first published in Vol.II of Mark Catesby's Natural History of South Carolina, and the Bahama Islands , London, 1743) is now virtually unobtainable. This has greatly increased the desirability of this fine Continental version, which is itself quite scarce. Seligmann's Sammlung verschiedener auslaendischer und seltener Vögel was published in nine parts between 1749 and 1776, and included a German translation of Catesby's work with re-engraved versions of his images, including the present map. Catesby's work was the first natural history of American flora and fauna. Catesby scholar G.F. Frick calls this map "a good representation of the better English ideas about the geography of North America" in the period. It is not generally recognized that the English version of this map appeared in two states. On the first state of 1743, the territory on both sides of the Mississippi was coloured green, to indicate that the entire region was in the hands of the French. A second state was included in the third edition of the Natural History in 1771, altered to show the political realignment brought about by the Treaty of Paris in 1763. The territory on the east bank of the Mississippi, which had been acquired by Britain, was now coloured green; the territory to the West, which now belonged to Spain, was coloured blue. The present German edition corresponds with the English first state. The map shows Southeastern North America as far west as the Mississippi River, plus the nearby Caribbean islands of the Bahamas, Cuba, Jamaica, and Hispaniola. Cf. Cumming, The Southeast in Early Maps (1998 ed.), 210 & 292.

        3e Mappe-Monde

      London: Nourse, Vaillant, Millar, Rocque & Sayer, 1755. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, repaired area in blank space in lower left of image, lower centerfold strengthened, otherwise in very good condition. A highly decorative map, depicting the World shortly before the great era of Pacific voyages This fascinating and attractive map showcases the world in twin hemispheres. While the general outlines of most regions are familiar to the modern observer, one will notice that vast realms of the Pacific still remained a mystery to the European consciousness. This is especially evident with reference to eastern Australia, which is shown to be connected to New Guinea and the "Terre du S. Esprit" by the "Côtes conjecturées." New Zealand is only partially delineated, having not been visited since Abel Tasman's landing in 1642. The Pacific coast of North America remains a complete enigma north of "Nle. Albion" (California). The Pacific Ocean is traversed with the normal routes of the Spanish galleons that ran between Acapulco and Manila. The map also features the track of Admiral Anson's epic circumnavigation of the world in 1740. The tropics in the Western Hemisphere are divided in the climatic zones, while the northern temperate regions are similarly divided in the Eastern Hemisphere. The map is gracefully adorned with a magnificent title cartouche of a rococo style that rests between the twin hemispheres. Jean Palairet was born in Montauban, France, but emigrated to England where he became a French tutor to the children of George II. He later wrote several informative books on arithmetic, language, arts and sciences, and geography. The present map is from the second edition of Palairet's greatest work, the Atlas méthodique , a magnificent cartographical demonstration, in which landmasses are shown in various stages of political definition.

      London Printed, Boston, New-England, Re-printed and Sold by, 1755. Small octavo. Antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, gilt leather label. A bit of light foxing. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage. Very good. First published in London the same year, this is the very scarce first American edition. A second Boston edition (identified as such on the titlepage) was also issued in 1755, due to the great demand for the work. Huske reviews the history of North American settlement from an English point of view, then describes French aggressions in Nova Scotia, in Maine, penetration into upper New York and the Ohio country and throughout the South. Huske urges immediate war to remedy the situation. "This book was, at the time of its appearance, both inflammatory and influential. It set forth British aims in North America, making a clear, vigorous, and concise attack on the French pretension..." - Lande. Often attributed to John Huske, the North American Imprints Project, DNB, and British Museum CATALOGUE list the author as Ellis Huske (John Huske's younger brother). Ellis Huske was postmaster in Boston in 1734, preceded Benjamin Franklin as deputy postmaster general of the colonies, and was the publisher of the BOSTON WEEKLY POSTBOY for some twenty years. He died in 1755.

        Jansénisme]. Nouvelles ecclésiastiques ou Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire de la Constitution Unigenitus pour l'année M.DCC.LV.

      Paris 1755 - In-4 à deux colonnes de 208 pp., maroquin brun, dos isse orné, pièces de titre en maroquin rouge, dos lisse orné, armes et chiffre en écoinçon sur les plats, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Quelques petites rousseurs. Exemplaire aux armes de Jean-Luc Vaysse de Saint-Hilaire, conseiller au parlement de Toulouse de 1740 à 1790. Exemplaire cité par Olivier, Hermal, Roton, pl. 1034. Les Nouvelles ecclésiastiques ont paru chaque semaine régulièrement de 1728 à 1803. C'est le plus extraordinaire monument de la presse clandestine durant l'ancien régime. Le gouvernement, les Jésuites, la hiérarchie catholique, la police, ont tout mis en oeuvre pour arrêter le cours de ce périodique mais en vain. Grâce à un réseau secret remarquablement organisé, malgré l'arrestation de près d'un millier de colporteurs, libraires ou imprimeurs, les jansénistes ont su conserver intacte cette tribune. On y trouve un journal précis des luttes religieuses et politiques qui ont marqué le XVIIIe siècle à propos de la Constitution Unigenitus. Principaux rédacteurs : Philippe et Elie Boucher, Alexis et Jean-Baptiste Desessarts, Louis Troya d'Assigny, François Joubert, Philippe Boursier, Pierre Vaillant, Jacques Fontaine de La Roche, Marc-Claude Guenin de Saint-Marc, Louis Guidi, Pierre-Sébastien Gourlin, Jean-Baptiste Mouton.

        Mapa Maritimo del Golfo de Mexico e Isles de la America para el uso de los navegantes en esta parte del mundo, construido sobre las mexores memorias, y observaciones astronomicas de longitudes, y latitudes

      [Madrid]: Tomás López & Juan de la Cruz Cano y Olmedilla, 1755. Copper-engraved map. Small expert marginal repairs. A beautiful and very rare Spanish maritime chart of Florida, Louisiana, parts of Texas and the whole of the Caribbean. Tomás López, one of the most important Spanish map-makers, was the official cartographer to the King of Spain during the second half of the eighteenth-century. The present map is one of a small handful relating to North America to be published in Spain during this period: it was published by Lopez and and Juan de la Cruz in Madrid in 1755 and is based on d'Anville's work. Unusually, this particular example is on a large single sheet rather than the more usual two sheets or two joined sheets. The geographical area depicted extends beyond the Caribbean to include Central America and the Caribbean, including the northern coast of South America. As is to be expected with a maritime chart the northern portion of the gulf shows only coastal features (with some inlets, bays and river-mouths), with Florida drawn as a series of closely associated islands on the eastern and southern tip. The land region of the northern gulf is labeled "Luisiana"; and Mexico is noted as "Nueva Espana". The sea areas are criss-crossed with rhumb lines and compass roses. There is an elaborate and very attractive rococo cartouche with the title including a dedication to Ferdinand VI of Spain, and the Spanish Royal coat of arms, fruits and vegetables from the New World, a bow and quiver with arrows and a native headdress, as well as an European sword and shield. The publication date of 1755 is significant as it marks the second year of the French and Indian War (or Seven Years' War as the conflict as a whole was known in Europe). By the war's end, France was compelled to relinquish virtually the entirety of its American empire. Canada and the Ohio Valley were ceded to Great Britain, and all of Louisiana west of the Mississippi was transferred to Spain. López published this map to allow an overview of the numerous islands and southern coastal regions that were being fought over by the three main combatants.

        Analyse raisonnee de Bayle, ou abrege methodique de ses ouvrages, particulierement de son Dictionnaire historique et critique: dont les remarques ont ete fondues dans le texte, pour former un corps instructif & agreable de lectures suivies (8 volume set)

      Londre[s] [but Paris]: [publisher not identified] 1755 - 8 volume set. Volume I-IV, 1755; Volume V-VIII; 1773. Bound in full armorial calf. Gold seal of Louis Marie August, 4th Duke d?Aumont stamped to the front and back covers. Gilt spine. Solid bindings, with chipping to spine. Joints cracking to a few volumes. All edges gilt. Marbled end pages. Scattered and sparse foxing, internally good. Worming hole to bottom margin of Vol. VI. Early signature of Chevalier D?Espagnac on title pages. An important book in the history of freedom of thought. Analyse de Bayle was a controversial work, censored in France during its time. Marsy, a former Jesuit, compiled Bayle's writings that were unfavorable to religion. "Pierre Bayle made a case for the possibility of a society of atheists in the late seventeenth century. Not surprisingly, Bayle's work became increasingly popular in France after 1750, aided by Marsy's popular summary of his ideas in Analyse raisonnee de Bayle, which was predictably condemned by the Paris Parlement in 1756. By the time Rousseau entered the fray of this debate Bayle's reasoning, 'which ran wholly counter to all arguments on behalf of a social religion, [had] entered the mainstream of enlightened speculation and caused some debate.' (Graeme Garrard. Rousseau's Counter-Enlightenment: A Republican Critique of the Philosophes" SUNY, 2003. p. 70). Much of the edition was burned, and the author was sent to the Bastille. The remaining four volumes (slightly different in style of binding because of the elapsed time) were compiled by Jean-Baptiste-Rene Robinet and did not appear until 1770 in Holland. (J.P. Belin, Le Mouvement philosophique de 1748 a 1789. 1913, pp. 71-73) Also, John Mackinnon Robertson. "A Short History of Freethought Ancient and Modern, Volume 2," Putnam, 1906. p. 225. br> Pierre Bayle was a Huguenot scholar who fled from French religious intolerance to Geneva and Holland. Bayle's influential encyclopedia was a best-selling philosophical work of the 18th century. The Dictionnaire's influence can be seen on Diderot, Locke, Leibniz, Kant, Hume, Berkeley, among others. Although an avowed Christian by faith rather than by reason, Bayle's fideist approach to the question of God created the logical framework for an atheist worldview. Bayle pointed out contradictions between theological tenets and the supposedly self-evident dictates of reason, though at the same time sought to promote religious tolerance, and argued strongly against inflexible and authoritarian application of religious articles of faith. (Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy remarks that Bayle's most significant impact is on the impulse towards modern atheism.) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[Rochester: s.n., 1755]. 4 pp. Folio (15" x 9-1/2"). Moderate toning, three horizontal fold lines, some edgewear with two tears along folds, text annotated throughout in contemporary hand, docketed at foot of p.4: "Kent Calendar/ Lent Assizes 1755/ Geo. Sayer Esq./ Sheriff." * A list of 40 prisoners, 36 printed and 4 added in contemporary manuscript, with detailed charges held against them while being held at Rochester Goal, Kent, England. The annotations list the sentences passed on each detainee, such as "Transported," "Death," "Not Guilty," and "Whipt [sic]." The annotations were probably written by Sheriff Sayer or one of his clerks. An example of one of the charges: "William Savage, committed by S. Stevenson, Esq; (Mayor of Maidstone) the 12th of December, charged on a strong Suspicion of feloniously conveying certain Instruments into his Majesty's Goal at Maidstone aforesaid, in order to facilitate the Escape of certain Prisoners in the said Goal, charged or Convicted of diverse Felonies." Savage was sentenced to transportation. Not listed on OCLC or ESTC; neither locate any assizes for Rochester goal.

      Typis Ballantianis, Faventiae 1755 - 4to (27 x 20 cm). Contemporary Italian vellum binding over boards.19th century bookplate of the Baron de Warenghien on front paste down. Collation: [I-iv], v-vii, 1-80 pp. + 40 copper engraved plates. The text and plates are in very good condition. All edges have speckled red inking. This first edition offers notes on published and unpublished mycological literature along with the author's views on the theory of spontaneous generation from putrefaction or from the "decayed nutritive juice." The latter would provide reproduction "by seed." There are notes of practical interest, such as on how to distinguish poisonous mushrooms and their therapeutic qualities. The work concludes with descriptions of around 300 kinds of mushrooms, divided into eight classes. The classification criteria is given by the external form, judged by Battarra to be a more certain and practical method of classification, than that used by Gleditsch in his Methodus fungorum of 1753.

In 1749, the fort was rebuilt as Fort Menagoueche when Lieutenant Charles Deschamps de Boishebert was ordered to secure the mouth of the Saint John River and defend it from the British. It was Boishebert who then burned it in 1755 while in retreat as British Colonel Robert Monckton sent Captain John Rous [sometimes Rouse] to take the fort. Monckton later rebuilt the fort in 1758, naming it Fort Frederick (Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada, Minutes, 1924, 1980)."

Spines tooled in gilt and blind with black morocco title labels and red gilt morocco volume numbers. The head of the spine to Vol I expertly repaired, and some slight rubbing. Some foxing to the first and last leaves in each volume. 8vo. Printed in the Year. 1755. In this social satire Shebbeare adopts the popular 18th century conceit of masquerading as a continental visitor to England - in this case an Italian - relating in lively style all manner of things ‘English' back home. He comments on ‘the little regard paid to literature in London' - ‘English gallantry compared with the Italian and French' - ‘the taste of England at present in architecture' - ‘on the English taste in gardening'.

        An essay on insurances, explaining the nature of the various kinds of insurance practised by the different commercial states of Europe. Illustrated by real and extraordinary cases, stated at large, with observations thereon, tending to settle divers doubtful points in making up accounts of losses and averages.

      London: printed by J. Haberkorn; and sold by W. Baker, 1755 - To which are annexed, some brief hints to merchants and insurers concerning the risks to which navigation is exposed in time of war. [With: An essay on insurances, being a collection of all the foreign ordinances of insurances, and forms of policies, translated into English, with remarks on such parts as are obscure or defective; all the English Acts of Parliament relating to insurances, shipwrecks, salvages, and insurance-companies; the forms of policies and bottomry bonds; the conditions of insurances against fire, &c. Together with a summary of all the treaties of commerce subsisting between England and foreign powers; and some mercantile reflections thereon. Volume II.] Two vols, 4to, (ii), vi, xviii, 562; vi, 466, 451-56, 473-714 pp., incorrect numbering of pages 433-466 in vol. II altered by means of pasted-on printed slips. Birmingham Law Society stamp on titles and occasionally elsewhere, some light foxing, contemporary calf, plainly rebacked, endpapers renewed, rubbed and darkened, edges worn, library gilt stamps on covers. First English edition. Old Palgrave II, p. 662; McCulloch, p. 243; Higgs 975, and 478 (German edition: "A valuable work by a very able man"). An important work, the most substantial by far on the subject to that time, and one which was to lay the foundations of insurance in England. This English edition is actually so much enhanced as to constitute a new work. Part of the book was published in German at Hamburg in 1753; at the request of some booksellers, Magens translated the work into English himself and added much of the material which makes up the second volume, particularly the matter concerned specifically with England. Magens was a German merchant, but lived for many years in England. He gives as his reason for publishing the lack of any treatise in English on maritime and mercantile insurance. Although the book is predictably widely held institutionally, it is rarely offered for sale. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A MISCELLANEOUS ESSAY CONCERNING THE COURSES PURSUED BY GREAT BRITAIN IN THE AFFAIRS OF HER COLONIES: WITH SOME OBSERVATIONS ON THE GREAT IMPORTANCE OF OUR SETTLEMENTS IN AMERICA, AND THE TRADE THEREOF

      London, 1755. 20th-century half calf and old marbled boards, gilt morocco label. Titlepage and final pages slightly soiled, a few leaves dampstained, otherwise very clean internally. A very good copy. The author was one of the earliest advocates of a union of the American colonies. In this tract he argues that the independent governments of the various colonies make it difficult to formulate a united commercial and defense policy, and calls for the establishment of a board of trade to regulate commerce, and to increase the authority of the Crown. McCulloch also recommends better treatment and closer alliances with the Indians, especially the Iroquois, to balance the French threat. An important political statement at the beginning of the French and Indian War, written by a prominent resident of North Carolina.

        STATE OF THE BRITISH AND FRENCH COLONIES IN NORTH AMERICA, WITH RESPECT TO NUMBER OF PEOPLE, FORCES, FORTS, INDIANS, TRADE AND OTHER ADVANTAGES

      London, 1755. Modern three-quarter speckled calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Quite clean internally. Very good plus. An important pamphlet, written as two letters, placing the blame for the situation in North America on the bad management in America as well as Europe, and including remarks on Washington's mission to the Ohio and the importance of that region and the claims of the French, with some material on Nova Scotia. The anonymous author draws upon the writings of Archibald Kennedy and Cadwallader Colden, and on Franklin's OBSERVATIONS UPON THE INCREASE OF MANKIND (then circulating in manuscript, but as yet unpublished) and William Smith's BRIEF STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA. John Huske was incensed by the present work, especially by the author's impartiality and the criticism of the British colonists' treatment of the Indians, and voiced his anger in his PRESENT STATE OF NORTH AMERICA, published the same year. "This anonymous work is a calm and dispassionate statement of the case of England against the encirclement policy of France....In emphasizing the importance of the Indians to the English, the author exposes the abuses which the Indians had suffered at the hands of the colonists" - Streeter. The present copy is without the map, not found in all copies. Quite rare.

        Die vornehmsten Wahrheiten der natürlichen Religion in zehn Abhandlungen auf eine begreifliche Art erkläret und gerettet. Zweyte verbesserte Auflage. Hamburg: Johann Carl Bohn, 1755.

      - Second edition, enlarged (36 pp. longer than the first edition from the same publisher the previous year). An English translation didn't appear until 1766, and the first French edition came out in 1768. The book includes criticism of Spinoza's account of substance (pp. 168-72), in which Reimarus accuses Spinoza of begging the question against dualism. 'Of great significance was Reimarus's Die vornehmsten Wahrheiten der natürlichen Religion (1754), which was read throughout the second half of the eighteenth century. Thinkers such as Moses Mendelssohn and the pre-critical Kant found them to be of value, and Kant preferred Reimarus to all other philosophers (according to one of Kant’s dining companions). The immense influence of the book was due in part to a misunderstanding. With the deistic premise that reason is the basis of religion, Reimarus remained decisively committed to rational knowledge. Although most readers did not notice it, natural religion had therewith forfeited its customary function as a preamble to Christian revelation. With its optimistic portrayal of both God and man, the stylistically brilliant work is perhaps one of the greatest pieces of philosophical prose of the German Enlightenment. It was also used apologetically against pantheism and French materialism (especially that of La Mettrie), and it made Reimarus into a philosopher of religion recognized throughout Europe' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, [xvi], 724, [28] pp., contemporary gilt-panelled calf, rubbed, spine creased and with loss at head, marbled endpapers, engraved bookplate of the Bavarian monk and rhetorician Albrecht Kirchmayer (1745-1814) by the artist Christian Thomas Wink, uniform light age-toning, isolated spots, no stamps or inscriptions, a good copy.

      Augsburg-München-Ingolstadt, Franz Xaver Crätz u. Thomas Summer, 1755-, 1753 - 1760. Mit einigen Holzschn.-Vignetten. 8°, neuer blauer GanzlederBd., Rotschnitt. Soweit nicht anders angegeben jeweils erste Ausgaben. Gelegentlich minimal braunfleckig, vereinzelt kleine Einrisse an den Seitenreitern. Durch seine Controverspredigten machte sich Neumayr sowohl bei den Evangelischen wie auch einigen Katholischen unbeliebt, denn er schrieb polemische Werke gegen Protestanten oder Freidenker. In einer Schrift von 1760 behandelte er den Probabilismus, woraufhin der Dominikanermönch Reichard mehrere Streitschriften verfasste. Diese Auseinandersetzung wütete eine lange Zeit mit Unterbrechungen, dabei hatte Neumayr einige Anhänger. Eine seiner Predigten diesbezüglich wurde indiziert. Er setzte sich gegen den Probabilismus ein, weshalb seine Gegner ihn beim Bischof anzeigten. Dieser klagte Neumayr in Rom an und am 29. Mai 1760 wurde ein entsprechendes Dekret der Inquisition ausgestellt. Nachher verurteilten auch deutsche Bischöfe seine Predigt. Da er der Kirche treu war, schwieg er, womit der Streit erledigt war. Seit diesem Streit beschäftigte er sich intensiver mit Literatur und wollte mehrere asketische Schriften abschaffen.Neumayr besaß umfassende Kenntnisse in sämtlichen theologischen Gebieten. Er verteidigte den Katholizismus, wobei er teils auch intolerant gegenüber anderen Konfessionen auftrat. So schrieb er ein Werk, in dem er behauptete, die katholische Konfession sei die einzige vernünftige. Er verfasste außerdem ein Werk mit Argumenten, katholisch zu bleiben oder zu werden. Trotzdem war er als theologischer Schriftsteller sowohl bei katholischen wie auch bei evangelischen beliebt. Ein Teil seiner schriftstellerischen Arbeiten erschien aber erst nach seinem Tod.Zwar war Neumayr eher praktisch, suchte in seinen Werken aber immer eine Rechtfertigung seines Handelns. Insgesamt verfasste er etwa 100 Werke, die zusammengerechnet in 400 Auflagen veröffentlicht wurden und auch außerhalb Deutschlands Verbreitung fanden. Darunter befinden sich auch Lehrbücher und dramatische Werke, wie auch dramentheoretische. Er verfasste sechs Tragödien, drei Komödien sowie ein Singspiel.
