Baldwin. 1755.. 1st Edition. 8vo, 19.8x 12.5cm, First British Edition, in 2 volumes, 568 & 416p., with engraved front folding map, hand coloured in outline (expert repair in the first panel), in contemporary full calf, expertly rebacked, raised bands, original crushed crimson labels, a fine set, rare. (cgc) First British Edition of the First History of America Written as a Whole, by a Resident of American Waldon. Biblio Canadiana Published in Great Britain, 1519-1763, p362.; cf.Lande 193; T.P.L. 225(1760) & 4711 (1755) [Wanting map]; Howes D-436; Clark I-226; Sabin 20726. Evans 6307. Wroth. American Bookshelf, pp.87-91. - Howes. Douglass was a Scottish physician living in Boston. Although not a work noted for its accuracy, Wroth comments, "Modern critics of the SUMMARY have overlooked the fact that its author was the first to attempt this story from the viewpoint of a resident American.," and further quotes a contemporary critic in the MONTHLY REVIEW as finding it "a fuller and more circumstantial account of North-America, than is any where else to be met with." In his PRESENT STATE OF NORTH AMERICA (London, 1755) John Huske wrote: "There is not one Work yet published to the World in our Language that in any Degree deserves the Title of a History of North America, but Smith's HISTORY OF VIRGINIA, and Douglass's SUMMARY. And this last is only valuable for being the best Collection of facts in general, for a future Historian, that was ever made or published."

Hugh Farmer
London: Buckland, 1755. Hugh Farmer (c1714-87) was a dissenter who held a place at Walthamstow, and there nurtured the size of the congregation significantly over many years until retiring due to blindness brought on by cataracts. His most prominent work is his Dissertation on Miracles. The interest in the relationship between natural law and theology which fed that work finds other outlets in this compendium of two publications. In the first of these, Farmer explores that relationship in terms of the reality of Christ's experiences in the desert. In the second, it is explored in terms of demonology. In the first publication Farmer explores critical views of Christ's temptation in the desert and defends his own conclusion that it can be viewed neither as an 'outward transaction' nor as a 'diabolical delusion' or 'divine vision,' before discussing the significance of temptation generally. In the second he attacks Worthington's Essay on Demoniacks, asserting that the demonic possessions discussed were not the work of Lucifer, but rather of the souls of departed people. He concludes by accepting that Worthington is under the same obligation as he to defend his convictions, and concedes that zealotry ought not to destroy benevolence and charity between Christians.

BUFFON, Georges Louis Leclerc
1755. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Virtually all the well-known writers of the Enlightenment were 'Buffonians'" ― Ernst Mayer The monumental work by Comte de Buffon, "Histoire Naturelle," was fascinating 18th-century collection of articles and encyclopedia entries on material sciences, physics, chemistry, technology, as well as the history of animals. Buffon wrote the volumes with the intent of addressing all of natural history, but after realizing the grandeur of the work, it focuses only minerals, birds, and quadrupeds. This fifth volume includes history of hooved animals - sheep, goats, rams, and pigs, as well as a description of dogs. While each volume of this set is illustrated, this particular tome includes over fifty full-page engravings.

Ruggiero Giuseppe BOSCOVICH
Roma, 1755. Il Padre gesuita Ruggiero Boscovich nasce a Ragusa in Dalmazia nel 1711 e si trasferisce a Roma già nel 1737, dove grazie alla sua profonda preparazione nel campo matematico e fisico, fu chiamato ad insegnare al Collegio Romano alla giovane età di soli 26 anni. Nonostante possa essere considerato come uno dei massimi esperti di astronomia e geodesia del suo tempo, fu consulente per molti difficili lavori di ingegneria, quali la bonifica delle Paludi Pontine e la sistemazione del porto di Rimini. L’idea di realizzare un importante rilievo geodetico-topografico dello Stato Pontificio fu suggerita proprio dal Boscovich che, grazie all’appoggio politico del Cardinal Valenti, ottenne l’approvazione e il sostegno economico di papa Benedetto XIV. Per la monumentale opera si avvalse dell’aiuto del gesuita inglese Padre Cristopher Maire, il quale pose come obiettivo dell’impresa la rettifica della carta geografica dello Stato Pontificio, ancora gravemente difettosa, e la corretta indicazione della posizione geografica delle principali città dello stato. L’opera fu ultimata, dopo oltre tre anni di lavoro, nel 1754 e ne fu data notizia in unapubblicazione, il De litteraria expeditione. del 1755, nel quale i due astronomi spiegano lo scopo e il metodo della grande impresa, basata su trinagolazioni e su misure derivanti da stime. L’opera a stampa venne alla luce nel 1755, diligentemente incisa ed edita dalla Calcografia Apostolica. La carta non risulta ricca di particolari, ma fissa in maniera definitiva il reticolato idrografico principale, la rete stradale e soprattutto la … [Click Below for Full Description]

BEDOS DE CELLES François
à Paris: Chez Briasson.

Three corners bumped, a good copy.Without doubt one of the best general treatises on sundials, perfectly illustrated and executed under the patronage of the Academy of Sciences by the learned and wise Benedictine monk Francois de Bedos de Celles (1709 - 1779). The great strength of this work is in its clarity of exposition and practice, which make it easy to apply its teaching both easily and precisely.

Francis Hutcheson
printed and sold by R. & A. Foulis...London: sold by A, 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).

Questo trattato di architettura militare è fra le opere principali di Sturm, pubblicato per la prima volta a Nuremberg nel 1702 e quindi, in edizione ampliata, nel 1719. “Léonard-Christophe Sturm, célèbre architecte allemand, natif d'Altdorf, fit ses études à l'académie de Leipzig, où il acquit des connaissances très étendues dans toutes les parties de son art. Ses talents le firent bientot connaitre: à peine sorti de l'école, le duc de Brunswic le nomma professeur de mathématiques à Wolfenbuttel; il remplit ensuite la chaire de cette science à l'académie de Francfort sur l'Oder. Le duc de Mecklenbourg le tira de la carrière de l'enseignement, pour lui confier, avec le titre de conseiller, l'intendance générale de ses batiments. Ce fut dans les loisirs que lui laissait cette place honorable que Sturm composa les ouvrages qui répandirent bientot sa réputation dans toute l'Allemagne. Mais l'excès du travail détruisit sa santé, et il mourut à Gustrow en 1719”. Così Biographie Universelle,XLIV, p. 122. Cfr. anche Berlin Katalog,3538 per l'ediz. del 1719.

"But Mansfield, in this as in other cases, was rather too ready to decry a set of reports because they contained a decision which was contrary to his own view of the law in the particular case before the court...Against Mansfield's condemnation we can set the opinions of Platt and Parker who recognized these reports as authoritative in 1853" (Holdsworth).

FUSS, Nicolas.
DSB V, pp. 209-210; Daumas, Scientific instruments, pp. 152-153. First and only edition of an important manual on the construction of telescopes and microscopes, the first publication by Nicolas Fuss (1755-1826), who grew up in a modest Swiss family but was to become one of the leading mathematicians and astronomers of his generation. The majority of Fuss's writings present solutions to problems raised by Leonhard Euler, in the fields of mathematics, mechanics, astronomy and geodesy. Euler's memoirs had been published earlier, but they were inaccessible to most people working in optics. Fuss published the present work, giving a very simple and rather schematic résumé of Euler's work. He listed "a number of formulae for the construction of telescopes with a magnification of five to fifty times, for achromatic telescopes with three lenses and a magnification from 25 to 320 times, and for achromatic telescopes with four or five lenses" (Daumas). Fuss gave all the necessary theoretical measurements for constructing these instruments. It ends with a description of a microscope with an achromatic objective of three lenses.With a small brown stain in the lower outside corner of the last few leaves, a small tear in the gutter margin of one leaf and small stains in the foot margin of another, but otherwise in very good condition and with large margins. Rebacked and restored at an early date.

"The most amazing and endearing one-man feat in the field of lexicography" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Johnson's dictionary is one of the most famous reference works in history. "The dictionary took just over eight years to compile, required six helpers, and listed 40,000 words. Each word was defined in detail, the definitions illustrated with quotations covering every branch of learning. It was a huge scholarly achievement, more extensive and complex than any of its predecessors...the dictionary was enormously popular and highly respected for its epic sense of scholarship" (British Library).

Gilt roll on edges of covers. On the spine, six panels with double-gilt borders and gilt flower centerpieces. Title-piece gilt in second panel: “DESCO | DE | ROUSS”. French-curl marbled end-papers. All edges marbled. Fore-corners worn. Some scratches to covers. Head- and tail-pieces worn. Hinges cracked, but only superficially. End-papers mildly tanned. Paper flaw to A9 and A10. Text itself is bright, with next-to-no foxing. Late-XIXc catalogue description (misspelling “fondemens” as “fondements”) pasted lightly to front paste-down (price 50 fr.). Although Marc-Michel Rey of Amsterdam printed the first edition of Rousseau’s second-most famous treatise in 1755, the present item is in fact a piracy – the first clue being that the true first is an octavo! Still, it is a very close copy, even misspelling Rousseau’s given name as Jean-Jaques at the end of the dedication (p. xlvij), as in the true first. The true first has a charming illustrated frontispiece; the current item has not, although a note on p. 199 directs the reader: “Voyez le Frontispice”. The treatise is Rousseau’s entry to a prize competition set by the Académie de Dijon in 1754: ""Quelle est l’origine de l’inégalité parmi les hommes, & si elle est autorisée par la Loi naturelle."" (""What the origin of inequality among men is, and if it is authorized by natural law."") Rousseau did not win with his treatise; a canon of Besançon by the name … [Click Below for Full Description]

[MORELLY, ETIENNE-GABRIEL]. - [A FORERUNNER OF MARX & ENGELS]
Par-Tout (i.e. Paris or Liège), Chez le vrai Sage, 1755. Small 8vo. Lovely contemporary full mottled calf with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. And excellent nice, clean, and fresh copy, printed on good paper. Old owner's name to title-page and a bookplate to inside of front board (M. Ph. de Planterose). Title-page printed in red and black and with an engraved vignette. 236, (4) pp. ¶ First edition of this canonical work of revolutionary utopianism, Morelly's main work, which greatly influenced later socialist and communist thought and which constitutes a forerunner of the works of Marx and Engels. The work was published anonymously and the author Étienne-Gabriel Morelly (1717 - 1778) remains a bit of a mystery about whom very little is known. At first, "The Code of Nature" was attributed to Denis Diderot, but other great authors of the day have also been proposed. "The Code of Nature" constitutes an early example of utopian socialist thought, providing a detailed plan for the establishment of a perfect state. It severely criticized the society of the time and proposed a constitution intended to lead to an egalitarian society without property, marriage, church or police. Based upon the principle that man is by nature good and the view that all social and moral ills were consequences of private property, it argues for an egalitarian society in which almost all private property - and thereby all of its pernicious consequences - is eliminated. Due to these radical views, Morelly is considered a significant forerunner of later socialist and communist thinkers, including … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOMONOSOV, MICHAEL. - [THE FOUNDATION OF MODERN RUSSIAN]
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. <br><br>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).<br><br>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.<br><br>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.

Martin Johann Fredrik (1755 - 1816)
Artist: Martin Johann Fredrik ( - 1816); date: ca 1780, 1755. - technic: Aquatinta; - colorit: gouache; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 35 x 54; - description: View of Stockholm. Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the most populous city in the Nordic countries. The city stretches across fourteen islands where Lake Mälaren flows into the Baltic Sea. Just outside the city and along the coast is the island chain of the Stockholm archipelago. The area has been settled since the Stone Age, in the 6th millennium BC, and was founded as a city in 1252 by Swedish statesman Birger Jarl. It is also the capital of Stockholm County. Stockholm's location appears in Norse sagas as Agnafit, and in Heimskringla in connection with the legendary king Agne. The earliest written mention of the name Stockholm dates from 1252, by which time the mines in Bergslagen made it an important site in the iron trade. The first part of the name (stock) means log in Swedish, although it may also be connected to an old German word (Stock) meaning fortification. The second part of the name (holm) means islet, and is thought to refer to the islet Helgeandsholmen in central Stockholm. According to Eric Chronicles the city is said to have been founded by Birger Jarl to protect Sweden from sea invasions made by Karelians after the pillage of Sigtuna on Lake Mälaren in 1187. The strategic and economic importance of the city made Stockholm an important factor in relations between the Danish Kings of the Kalmar Union and the national independence movement in the 15th century. The 17th century saw Sweden … [Click Below for Full Description]

MOREAU (Jacob Nicolas).
La Haye, [Paris], 1755-1759. 4 volumes in-12, demi-maroquin vert, dos lisses filetés or (reliure moderne). Rare collection, bien complète des 46 lettres et notamment de la seconde partie de la vingt-troisième qui manque toujours. Ces lettres furent rédigées par Moreau, un juriste attaché au Ministère des Affaires étrangères, d'après les notes fournies par l'abbé de La Ville, premier commis du même ministère. Elles furent très vraisemblablement écrites et publiées avec l'accord du gouvernement, et, bien que se présentant comme impartiale, l'auteur (très bien renseigné par ailleurs) défend en fait le point de vue français contre celui de l'Angleterre. La série commence un an avant le début officiel de la Guerre de Sept ans (1756-1763), qui fut précédée par des accrochages entre Français et Anglais en Amérique du Nord, connus sous le nom de guerre franco-indienne. Dans le cours des lettres, l'auteur reviendra souvent sur la situation du Canada. On trouve relié entre les dix-huitièmes et dix-neuvièmes lettres: Essai de paraphrase de la réponse de M. de Hellen au mémoire de M. de Kauderbach. Liège, Pierre Marteau, 1756. 88 pp. imprimées sur 2 colonnes. Bien que ne faisant pas proprement partie de l'Observateur hollandois, cet ouvrage se trouve assez souvent relié avec lui. Bel exemplaire de cet ouvrage peu commun. Mouillure claire marginale au tome 4. Hatin, 61. -- Ouvrage non cité dans les bibliographies usuelles telles que Sabin, Leclerc, Kress ou Ined.

Graziosa legatura del tempo in piena pelle marmorizzata, piatti inquadrati da cornicetta in oro, merlettatura interna in oro, dorso a 5 nervi con fregi e titoli in oro. Ex libris a stampa di Franco Bandini. Ottimo esemplare. Edizione originale di quest'opera che risulta sconosciuta a tutti i repertori bibliografici, sebbene venisse schedata per due volte da Viollet le Duc nel suo catalogo pubblicato nel 1847 (p. 84 e p. 203). Questo libello famoso, sia in questa preziosa edizione originale, sia in quelle successive citate dal Gay, è di eccezionale rarità, mancando al Nodier, all'Enfer, alla Biblioteca Arcana e a tutti i repertori specialistici. E' fatto di 101 epigrammi "postribolari", ciascuno di dieci versi da otto sillabe, quanto più si possa immaginare allusivi di oscenità. L'Hotel de Roule era nel '700 la più celebrata casa di piacere fino a quel tempo esistita in Europa, situata a Chaillot, località che si trovava -all'epoca- fuori dalla cerchia urbana di Parigi. Di questo celebre serraglio e della sua celebre maman, la "appareilleuse Justine" [cognominata Paris], scrisse con entusiasmo anche Giacomo Casanova nelle sue Memoires (Libr. III, cap. IX).

Beneficiándose del patrocinio real, los responsables de la Real Capilla consiguieron hacerla iglesia parroquial con la extensión de servicios que ofrecían al palacio y a la vecindad además de obtener los capellanes más beneficios pecuniarios. Esto provocó la reacción del Cardenal Arzobispo de Toledo que mandó un escrito al rey expresando sus dudas sobre la legitimidad de la acción. Por este motivo el Cardenal Mendoza recibió el encargo de redactar este informe. En él, Mendoza describe la historia de la Real Capilla, lo que parece ser la primera historia de la misma. Al mismo tiempo describe la situación de la iglesia madrileña). MADRID
