        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.

        Rossijskaja Grammatika (Russian, i.e. Russian Grammar).

      Sanktpeterburg (St. petersburg), 1755. 8vo. Very worn contemporary full calf. Leather lacking at capitals and corners, but binding is still tight. Internally a bit of soiling and damp staining (mostly quite vain), but overall in quite good condition and surprisingly clean. Many notes to pasted-down end-papers and old owner's inscriptions to title-page. 210 pp. Lacking the contents-leaf at the end. Some copies also seem to have a frontispiece, but this is not present in all copies (about half of the copies on OCLC do not collate it). It is not present here.. The extremely rare first edition of Lomonosov'e groundbreaking Russian Grammar, which completely reformed the Russian literary language, by combining Old Church Slavonic with the vernacular. Mikhail Vasilyevich Lomonosov (1711-1765) was the first Russian scientist-naturalist of universal importance, among whose discoveries were the atmosphere of Venus and the Law of Mass Conservation in chemical reactions. He was a great polymath and was also very influential as a poet and an artist. But he was probably most influential as a linguist, as it is he, who laid the foundation of modern Russian literary language (primarily with his "Russian Grammar", 1755).In 1748 he founded the first Russian chemical laboratory at the Academy of Sciences, and it was on his initiative that the Moscow University was founded in 1755.During the first half of the XVIIIth century in Russia, deep social and cultural changes had led to a chaotic linguistic situation, which somehow had to be solved. "An important number of scholars, writers, translators - in one word, "men of learning" - participated in, and contributed to the formation of what we now call modern Literary Russian. However, the name M.V. Lomonosov (1711-1765) stands apart, and in our opinion, deserves special attention. Lomonosov can be considered the first to have influenced the course of events by establishing some basic rules and criteria, and by giving some important grammatical and stylistic guidelines within the linguistic and literary field. Among his numerous achievements in various fields of human activities, his contribution in the sphere of language is certainly among the most important. If we accept the assumption that the "men who were at the cradle of modern Russian had to have two fundamental qualifications: 1) Complete familiarity with the Church Slavic language, with Church Slavic literature and culture in the broad sense, plus a knowledge of Greek... [and], 2) a similar familiarity with the West European languages, literature and culture...," then Lomonosov certainly fulfils these criteria, As G.H. Worth points out, in order to have a unified literary language, the most important prerequisites are: a standardized grammar, and a regulated vocabulary. Indeed, Lomonosov's most important contribution lies in the achievement of both these tasks. His "Rossijskaja Grammatika" was a first comprehensive grammar of the Russian language. It was published five times between its first appearance in 1755 and the end of the eighties... It remains an indisputable fact among scholars that Lomonosov's contribution in the field of grammar was of paramount importance." (Olgica Zingg: The Role of Lomonosov in the Formation of the Early Modern Russian Literary Language, 1997, pp. 4-6)

The author states that the 1755 earthquake was not due to natural causes, as was usual at the time and disputed by humanists like Voltaire. Nevertheless, the text in epic prose depicts well the tsunami, its approach and the main places of destruction: 'rebentando a água neste vistoso campo do Bonfim' [the waves hitting this beautiful field of Bonfim]; 'verde negro das ondas' [the greenish black of the waves]; 'nas tuas ruas os barcos, os batéis, e os hiates atravessados com o ímpeto' [on your streets the boats, barges and the yachts dragged by the force of the waves]; etc. Location/localizacao: 4-6-D-59

      [Lisbon, 1755. Folio. Dbd. Minor soiling. Near fine. This law is an interesting example of the type affecting South American indigenous populations and was very liberal for the time. This significant ruling was intended to favor the Companhia Geral do Grão-Pará e Maranhão, which had been established in 1755 by the Marquis of Pombal as a monopolistic trading company. It was given commercial control of the northern region of Brazil, employing imported slave labor rather than impressed indigenous labor. This law was one of the numerous laws passed in Portugal affecting the company's operations, the effect of which was to liberate the indigenous population of Grão Pará and Maranhão in present northern Brazil. The law was also calculated to vastly reduce the power and influence of the Jesuit missions and secularize the indigenous society by passing control of the region to the company. The Pombaline Reforms, including the establishment of this company, were a series of reforms with the goal of making Portugal an economically self-sufficient and commercially strong nation, by expanding Brazilian territory, streamlining the administration of colonial Brazil, and reforming fiscal and economic matters. The Jesuits were finally officially ejected from Brazil in 1759 as part of this movement. The text is divided into four sections. The preamble justifies the law, followed by a section which includes extracts from the law that freed the indigenous people; this is followed by the law which declared indigenous people could work for whomever they pleased and the law of 1611, which freed all indigenous people who were slaves. Not in Borba de Moraes or Sabin. GAUZ 1755/22.

        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.

        The Works of Jonathan Swift, D D (in 6 vols )

      London: Printed for C. Davis, C. Hitch and L. Hawes, C. Bathurst, R. And J. Dodsley, and W. Bowyer, 1755. First edition. Six quarto volumes (preceding the octavo version), collating: 8, 4, 43, xviii, 184, [ii], viii, 286; 231, 182 (but 202); iii, 191, [viii], 253; [viii], 318, ii, 237; [iv], 258, [iv], 232; [iv], 210, iii, 218. Complete with 26 numbered engravings (although number 6 bound out of order) as well as two unnumbered leaves of music plates, with a total of four plate impressions. Bound in contemporary diced calf with gilt borders, rebacked with black and brown morocco spine labels. A few paper repairs to marginal chips or tears, a few worm-tracks, and some toning to leaves, but on the whole a pleasing copy. With the armorial bookplates and signature (dated 1763) of John Wombwell. The complete works of one of literature's key satirists. Swift was in his late 30s and already had a career as a priest when his first satires, A Tale of a Tub and The Battle of the Books, were published. The former caused quite a sensation - many people thought that Swift was attacking religion itself, as opposed to its more negative aspects - but it would also make Swift a household name. Swift served for a time in politics before eventually taking up a Church position in Ireland. Though he considered himself like "a rat in a hole," he started to publish many of his most famous works, including "A Modest Proposal" and, of course, Gulliver's Travels. "...he is one of the writers I admire with the least reserve, and Gulliver's Travels, in particular, is a book which it seems impossible for me to grow tired of." (George Orwell).

        Deformity. An Essay

      London, R. and J. Dodsley, 1755 [third edition]/ 1754 - Octavo, [iv], 81, [3] pages. Early full calf worn at the extremities, with slight loss to the ends of the spine; spine lightly scorched in one small section and heavily rubbed, removing most of the gilt-decorated surface and the title-label; outer hinges broken but the covers are held firmly in place by the cords; a very good copy. William Hay (1695-1755), author and MP, wrote this 'autobiographical polemic addressing contemporary demonizing attitudes towards disfigurement [which] has been under-recognized as a key intervention in the history of disability' (Shuttleton: Smallpox and the Literary Imagination, 1660-1820). Bound together with [ASGILL, J.]: An Argument proving, that according to the Covenant of Eternal Life revealed in the Scripture, Man may be translated from hence into that Eternal Life, without passing through Death, altho the Humane Nature of Christ himself could not be translated until he had passed through Death ([London?], 1700; 106 pages), and [ASGILL, J.]: Mr Asgill's Defence upon his Expulsion from the House of Commons of Great Britain in 1707 [London, 1712; 88 pages). John Asgill (1659-1738): 'Eccentric writer, student at the Middle Temple, 1686, and called to the Bar 1692. In 1699 he published in an unlucky hour a pamphlet to prove that death was not obligatory upon Christians, which, much to his surprise, aroused the public wrath and led to his expulsion from the Irish and English House of Commons successively. Asgill thereafter fell on evil days, and passed the rest of his life between the Fleet and the King's Bench, where, strange to say, his zeal as a pamphleteer continued unabated' (Cousin: A Short Biographical Dictionary of English Literature [online]). Apart from a later name-stamp and two old signatures on the early leaves of the first Asgill item and some light tidemarks to the top corner of some leaves of the second Asgill item, the contents are in excellent condition.

        Nuova carta geografcia dello Stato Ecclesiastico.

      Calcografia Apostolica, Roma 1755 - Incisione in rame in tre fogli uniti, complessivi mm 1190x645, colore d'epoca ai confini. Importante carta graduata costruita grazie ad osservazioni e operazioni astronomico-geodetiche effettuate lungo il meridiano di Roma. Gli autori quindi, pur non avendo per scopo di "formare un'esatta carta topografica delle parti minute dello Stato Pontificio", poterono, grazie alle misurazioni effettuate "rettificare la geografia generale di esso". La carta fu terminata nel 1754 ma l'opera a stampa venne alla luce nel 1755, diligentemente incisa ed edita dalla Calcografia Apostolica. La carta non è ricchissima di particolari, ma determina idrografia principale, rete stradale e toponomastica.Ruggiero Boscovich, gesuita, nacque a Ragusa in Dalmazia nel 1711, fu chiamato ad insegnare al Collegio Romano a soli 26 anni. Grazie alla profonda conoscenza tecnica fu consulente per molti difficili lavori di ingegneria (bonifica delle Paludi Pontine e sistemazione del porto di Rimini). Bibliografia: F. Ronca e A.

        A NEW THEORY OF THE EARTH, From its Original to the Consummation of All Things. Wherein The Creation of the World in Six Days, the Universal Deluge, And the General Conflagration, As laid down in the Holy Scriptures, Are shewn to be perfectly agreeable to Reason and Philosophy. With a large Introduction concerning the genuine Nature, Style, and Extent of the Mosaick History of the Creation.

Metham, contemporary double gilt rule edged calf, some discolouring and wear with sm. repair to upper board, gilt ruling with gilt lettered title label to spine with sl. loss to head and tail. ESTC. T98873. ODNB ?'... Whiston's swift conversion to Newton's natural philosophy soon bore fruit in his first publication, [the above first published] (1696). He had shown this millenarian cosmogony in manuscript to Richard Bentley (1662?-1742), Christopher Wren (1632?-1723), and Newton himself, whom Whiston claims ?'well approved of it?' (Whiston, Memoirs, 43) and to whom the book was dedicated. Whiston's New Theory applied the physics of Newton and the geology of John Woodward (d. 1728) to demonstrate that the scriptural accounts of creation, the flood, and the final conflagration were ?'perfectly agreeable to Reason and Phylosophy?' (ibid.). He also sought to correct Thomas Burnet's Cartesian and deistically tinged Sacred Theory of the Earth (1681, 1684), which Whiston had defended for his BA degree. Whiston prefaced his earth theory with an essay on the style of Genesis and, like Newton, argued for a more literal hermeneutic. He drew from Newton's work on comets, and posited that the planetary system had solidified from comets attracted by the sun's gravitation. He used a catastrophist cometography to explain the flood, suggesting that the near approach of a divinely guided comet had initiated the diurnal rotation of the earth, transformed its orbit from circular to elliptical, and caused the deluge through the condensation of vapours from the comet's tail. He also identified stratified sedimentary rock and marine fossils found in continental areas as vestiges of the flood. The New Theory proved popular and after the initial run of 1500 copies went through five further editions (1708?-55), was translated into German (1713), epitomized in French (1718), and summarized by the comte de Buffon (1707?-1788) in 1749. The latter wrote ostensibly to refute the New Theory, but was nevertheless indebted to some of Whiston's ideas, as were other earth theorists. Praised by John Locke (1632?-1704) for its novel hypotheses, the New Theory was the first full-length popularization of Newtonianism and the most direct cause of Whiston's meteoric rise ...?'

        A View of the Palace of Chantilli, taken from the Principal Entrance / Vue du Chateau de Chantilli, prise du cote de la Principale Entree

      London: Sold by J. Boydell, Engraver at the Unicorn the corner of Queen Street in Cheapside, 1755. Hand-coloured engraving. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition. Framed in a beautiful gold-leaf frame with a cream washline mount. Image size: 8 1/2 x 17 inches. A magnificent view of a stunning chateau in Chantilly, France by the celebrated landscape engraver Jacques Rigaud. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a trend developed amongst English and European artists and printmakers, which sought to visually record their country's natural beauties. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, artists and printmakers began to publish topographical prints of important sights and architectural attractions. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These topographical prints were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those vicarious tourists who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. By joining this printing trend Jacques Rigaud made a name for himself in both France and England, and became one of the most successful French landscape engravers. He dedicated his artistic life to producing delicate engraving of national beauties across France. He executed a large series of works depicting France's stately homes and he worked in England, where he was commissioned to illustrate the celebrated gardens at Stowe. Rigaud's work influenced an entire generation of English and French printmakers; his delicate formal engravings established a classical format for topographical prints, which would be used until the onset of the nineteenth century.
