Staal de Launay (Marguerite Jeanne Cordier ; Beaune 1684-1750) :
Londres [i.e. Paris], s.n., 1755 ; 4 tomes reliés en deux volumes in-8, demi-veau jaspé, dos lisse à faux nerfs dorés, palette décorative en queue, fleurons et entourage dorés, pièces de titre et de tomaison grenat, plats ocre clair jaspé portant une grande étiquette rouge "Bibliothèque de Maupertuis" dans un encadrement doré (reliure de l'époque); 321 ; 298; 284 ; 247 pp. (les titres des tomes II et III ont été intervertis). Edition originale. Née à Paris, Marguerite Jeanne Cordier reçut une éducation brillante dans le couvent St Louis de Rouen où, enfant, elle était au centre de l'intérêt des religieuses et converses de bonnes familles. C'est, plus tard, la duchesse de la Ferté, sa protectrice, qui la plaça chez la duchesse du Maine (Louise-Bénédicte de Bourbon-Condé ; 1676-1753) qui tenait à Sceaux une cour brillante ; intrigante, elle organisa la conspiration d'Espagne en France. Ce complot avait pour objet d'écarter le Régent qui, lui-même, avait écarté son mari, Louis-Auguste de Bourbon, prince légitimé, de tout pouvoir, en faisant casser le testament du Roi Louis XIV, en 1715. Marguerite Cordier fut mêlée à cette affaire et fut embastillée pendant que la duchesse du Maine était en exil à Dijon. Libérée, elle se retrouvèrent à Sceaux, et elle épousa le baron de Staal, capitaine aux Gardes Suisses, maréchal de camp du duc du Maine. Les mémoires de madame de Staal sont très intéressants sur la période de la Régence et le règne de Louis XV. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de Pierre Louis Moreau de Maupertuis (1698-1759), philosophe, mathématicien, physicien, astr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giuseppe VASI (Corleone, 27 Agosto 1710 - Roma, 16 Aprile 1782)
Acquaforte e bulino, 1755. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, qualche piega di carta, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maverick, Peter Rushton
Near Fine. A silversmith and an engraver, Peter Rushton Maverick (1755 -1811) emigrated to America, where he settled in New York before the American revolution, marrying in New York in 1772. Mavericks engraving shop was located on Liberty Street (formerly No. 3, Crown Street) at Maiden Lane in lower Manhattan in 1784. It is believed to have been on Dey (formerly Batteau) Street in 1775. A fine example of copper plate engraving, this bookplate is simply signed, Maverick, Sculpt. New York. With the motto Fortiter Ascende under an image depicting two sister temples of learning with the mottoes Famae Sacrum and Virtuti Sacrum engraved on their respective facades above a rocky climb, with a goddess leading a young student up the steep incline. Below the image is a second garlanded cartouche with Erasmus Hall Library No. This bookplate measures15.7 cm x 9 cm and has obviously been trimmed. The call numbers of books in which this plate was used remain on the lower cartouche. The condition is good, as the quality of paper used for printing was and remains crisp and fine. Erasmus Hall is one of the most storied educational institutions in New York history, boasting centuries of distinguished alumni.

1755. Original antique print, untitled. It shows: a portrait of a toothless old beggar woman. She wears a cloth headdress and has a bared shoulder. She looks at the artist with pity-inducing eyes, and holds a begging hand out. Etching on a verge type handlaid paper. Description: Separately published master print, published 1755. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text. These can both be prints made by old masters (artists) or prints made by others (artists, engravers, etchers) after old masters.Artists and Engravers: Engraved by Schmidt after an unidentified artist in the Rembrandt school. The original was formerly attributed to Rembrandt. Georg Friedrich Schmidt (Schonerlinde 1712 - Berlin 1775) was a German engraver and designer. He studied art under Busch and later Larmessin in Paris. In 1757 he was summoned to Saint Petersburg to engrave the portrait of Empress Elizabeth. His etching and engraving style (in the manner of Rembrandt) gained him great recognition and is ranked among the best work in Germany at the time. He created ca. 200 etchings and engravings in his lifetime. Condition: Very good, given age. Ghosting from previous matting, some faint foxing in the margins.

Une des deux éditions princeps de la Pucelle d'Orléans, qui correspond à l'édition B de Bengesco, sans que l'édition A soit déclarée la première, ces deux lettres ne sont là que pour différencier les deux éditions (Bengesco, I-)478. L'ouvrage fut condamné à l'Index par décret du 20 janvier 1757 ; la Pucelle fut aussi brûlée à Genève. Edition fort rare. La reliure a un peu souffert (coins et coiffe supérieure usés, mors supérieur fendu en haut et en bas, soit aux 2/3, quelques petites taches et rousseurs) mais l'exemplaire est bien manipulable.

Another edition, with 31 pp., bears the same imprint: its setting of type is completely different, but a cursory comparison of the texts revealed no differences.

STEBBING, Henry
London: C. Davis 1755 - 8vo., (4) + iii + (1) + 55 + (1)pp., including the half-title, recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A fine, crisp, copy. First edition. Henry Stebbing (1687-1763), chancellor of Sarum and a Chaplain to King George II from 1732, 'played his part in the debate over Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act (1753) in A dissertation on the power of states to deny civil protection to the marriages of minors made without the consent of their parents or guardians (1755). This proved a contentious deployment of the natural law arguments of Grotius and Pufendorf, and several replies appeared in quick succession; Nathaniel Forster's manuscript reply is in the British Library (Add. MS 11276).' [B.W. Young in ODNB). Lord Hardwicke's Act (1753) had brought about reform of British marriage laws, most notably by establishing the requirement of banns, or a licence, to do away with the scandal of clandestine marriages. The author here argues for certain limits on the power of the state of regulate marriages by resorting to principles of natural law as defined by Pufendorf and Grotius.

JOHNSON, SAMUEL
London: Printed by W. Strahan for J. & P. Knapton et al., 1755. FIRST EDITION. Described by PMM as "the most amazing, enduring, and endearing one-man feat in the field of lexicography," this is the most important dictionary in English, a monumental undertaking and an appropriately imposing physical object. Johnson wrote all of the definitions in the first dictionary in English to employ illustrative quotations, the first genuinely descriptive (rather than proscriptive) dictionary, the first to codify the spelling of words, and the first dictionary to contain anything like analytical, comprehensive definitions for words with many shades of meaning. Webster said that "Johnson's writings had, in philology, the effect which Newton's discoveries had in mathematics." This magnificent book, so massive and so frequently subjected to heavy use, is becoming increasingly difficult to find in excellent condition. Former owner Bernard J. S. Coleridge, second baron Coleridge (1851-1927) was a prominent jurist with a charming connection to Dr. Johnson: his great-grandmother had known the author, and had even perched on his knee as a small child.. 425 x 255 mm. (16 3/4 x 10"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Very pleasing modern period-style panelled calf, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with large central fleurons formed of ornate lancets and other small tools, azured drawer-handle cornerpieces, black and burgundy morocco labels, marbled endpapers. Front pastedowns with armorial bookplate of Bernard, Lord Coleridge; title pages with (partially erased) 18th century signature of F … [Click Below for Full Description]

FOURCROY (Antoine François).
2 ouvrages en 1 volume petit in-8. Plein parchemin, dos lisse orné, filets sur les plats, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (Reliure de l'époque). 1). Edition Originale. Le chimiste Antoine François Fourcroy (1755-1809) fut un des premiers à comprendre l'importance des découvertes de Lavoisier et à oeuvrer pour leur diffusion. Il publia cet ouvrage pour en faciliter la compréhension. "As a guide for the student attending a course of lectures, or the older chemist who was, perhaps, uncertain of the antiphlogistic theory, 'Philosophie Chimique' was without a rival" (Smeaton). Ce livre eut un succès immédiat et les éditions et traductions dans les diverses langues européennes se succédèrent. "The first edition is very rare" (Zeitlinger). ** Smeaton, p. 91. Partington, III, 538. Manque à Duveen. 2). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage basé sur les herborisations de l'auteur dont le but était tout à la fois l'étude botanique et la collecte de plantes. Jean-Louis Thuillier né à Creil en 1757, mort à Paris en 1822, était botaniste, jardinier et fournisseur d'herbiers qu'il fabriquait lui-même. Il était installé à Paris, rue de Bièvre (aujourd'hui dans le 6ème arrondissement, près de la Seine). ** Pritzel, Thesaurus literaturae botanicae, 10230. Bel exemplaire de ces deux ouvrages reliés ensemble à l'époque. Il a appartenu au botaniste, géologue et homme politique Antoine-François Passy, né à Garches en 1792, mort à Gisors en 1873, membre de l'Académie des Sciences et l'un des fondateurs de la Société Botanique de Paris.

Theodorus, Flavius Malius; Heusinger, Jacob Friedrich, editor
Bindsal, Wolfenbuttel 1755 - 40 pp. Editio princeps. A small quarto. Leather boards are scuffed and quite rubbed at the corners, front board detached, spine covering is dry and rough. Marbled endpapers with some age and a few numbers written on them. Title page has the stamp and inscription of Ign. F. Hostmann who would become Bishop of Cleveland. Original silk page marker. Some amusing woodcuts, text in double columns under an italic text, entirely in Latin. Date from colophon. Theodorus (fl 376-ca409) was a consul of the Roman Empire and the author of this treatise on metres, "one of the best of its kind" (H. Keil). Augustine of Hippo was initially a fan but came to dislike Theodorus intensely -- however, not for reasons having to do with metrical scholarship! The editor, J. F. Heusinger (1717-1778) , was a noted grammarian in Wolfenbuttel (Guelpherbyti) , an admirable interpreter of Greek and Latin authors. For this editio princeps, he worked from an old manuscript of Theodorus's work. Very scarce. No auction records and no originals for sale. Most of the copies in WorldCat are later editions, even those in the 1755 record. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 40 pages [Attributes: First Edition]

CALVIN, Jean (1509-1564)-BÈZE, Théodore de (1519-1605)
8vo (175x11 mm). (94), 208, (6) leaves. With the printer's device on the title-page. 19th-century polished calf, spine with gilt ornaments and morocco title-label, gilt edges, hinges a bit weak, some light dampstains, but a fine copy with the entry of ownership of Georges Constantin Naville (1755-1789), pastor and theological writer at Geneva, and with the book plate of Charles-Louis Frossard (1827-1902), minister at Lille and also writer on geology. SECOND EDITION of the commentary on Joshua, Calvin's dying bequest to the Church, and FIRST EDITION of the revised and augmented version of his biography by Théodore de Bèze. In his last exegetical endeavor Calvin provided a moral model for Reformed believers, one that he hoped would represent the Reformed as people who were law-abiding, morally sound proponents of order and peace (cf. R.A. Blacketer, The Moribund Moralist: Ethic Lesson in Calvin's Commentary on Joshua, in: "The Formation of Clerical and Confessional Identities in Early Modern Europe", W. Janse, ed., Leiden, 2006, pp. 149-168; see also M. Woudstra, Calvin's Dying Bequest to the Church: A Critical Evaluation of the Commentary on Joshua, Grand Rapids, MI, 1960, passim). Calvin started to lecture on Joshua in June 1563 in the Friday congregation and finished his commentary shortly before his death. In the early part of 1564 Calvin's sufferings (fever, asthma, stone and gout - the fruits for the most part of his sedentary habits and unceasing activity) became so severe that it was manifest that his earthly career was rapidly ending. On February 6, he preached his l … [Click Below for Full Description]

The King was inspired to make this wise move by Francois de la Peyronie (1678-1747) the eminent Montpellier surgeon who, with Georges Mareschal (1658-1736) had founded the Academy of Surgery and, in fact, devoted his entire fortune to the advancement of his beloved art." – Garrison.
