CATESBY, Mark (1683-1749)] - Johann Michael SELIGMANN (1720-62)
Seligmann, Nuremberg 1755 - Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, in good condition apart from one large expertly repaired tear and a number of small repaired tears to old folds. A fine copy of the first and only continental edition of one of the finest and most important maps of the region 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 9 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. The 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Joseph, King of Portugal
Freedom for the Indians of Brazil A fine sammelband of Portuguese Royal Decrees regarding the freedom of the natives from Brazil, Jesuits, and one forbidding the printing of satires. [Joseph, King of Portugal]. Dom Joseph por graca de Deos que desde o descubrimento do Grão Pará, e Maranhão, até agora não só se não tem multiplicado, e civilizado os Indios daquelle Estado. Ley porque V. Magestade há porbem restituir aos Indios do Grão Pará, e Maranhão a liberdade das suas pessoas, bens e commercio na forma nella se declara. 1755. Lisbon. Miguel Rodrigues. In folio. 12 pp. This document is the historical law of emancipation of Indians in Brazil. (6 of June of 1755). This law, known as Law of Liberty, "frees Indians from Church Administration and settler enslavement.". On June 6, 1755, King José I promulgated a second law, the so called Law of Liberty, which “restored to the Indians [of the Amazon basin] the liberty of their persons, possessions, and commerce.” The law swept aside, at least on paper, the abusive practices, including forced labour and enslavement, to which these Indians, specifically those living in Jesuit-controlled aldeias, had for two centuries been subjected. Granted political autonomy and ownership of their village, they could, theoretically, choose to work for whomever they wished at fair wages. [bound with] [Joseph, King of Portugal].

Justi, Johann Heinrich Gottlob v.
Leipzig, Bernhard Christoph Breitkopf, 1755. Erste Ausgabe des klassischen Briefstellers, der darüber hinaus im theoretischen Teil auch ein sprach- und dichtungstheoretisches Werk ist. Es ist erstaunlich, über welche Kenntnisse und welchen Literaturüberblick der Volkswirtschaftler Justi verfügte. So enthält der erste Teil Kapitel wie: 'Von der Güte, Schönheit und dem Nachdruck der Worte', 'Betrachtungen über die deutsche Sprache und die Sprachkunst', 'Von der Erfindung, Ordnung und Schönheit der Gedanken' u.a. Justi (1717-1771) war einer der bedeutendsten Kameralisten seiner Zeit, insbesondere wegen seiner systematischen Trennung der Kameral- von den Polizeiwissenschaften. Er arbeitete als Privatsekretär, Advokat und Rat der Herzogin von Sachsen-Eisenach und wurde 1751 Prof. der Rhetorik und der Kameralistik am Theresianum in Wien. Seine Lehren, die am Leitbild einer durch Grundgesetze gemilderten und rational verwalteten absoluten Monarchie orientiert waren, beeinflssten die Reformen Josephs II. Justi veröffentlichte u.a. staatswirtschaftliche, ökonomische und kameralwissenschaftliche Schriften. Fehlspekulationen im Silberbergbau zwangen ihn 1754, aus dem österr. Dienst auszuscheiden. Er begab sich zunächst nach Göttingen, wo er als Polizeidirektor und Bergrat wirkte, scheiterte aber bald erneut aufgrund finanzieller Probleme. Nach kurzer Zeit in dänischen Diensten wurde er vom preuß. König 1765 zum Leiter der staatlichen Bergwerke ernannt, drei Jahre später jedoch wegen angeblicher Unterschlagungen seines Amtes enthoben und in der Festung Küstrin inhaftiert, wo er nach ei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mosman, Nicolas, 1727-1787
Rome, c. 1755-1765. A series of forty-four large chalk drawings (circa 482/525 × 345/360 mm) of exemplary antique statues in Rome, perhaps executed for an English patron, or with a view toward eventual publication in England, as they are scaled in both English piedi and Roman palmi. Nicolas Mosman is known chiefly by a set of drawings of paintings in Roman collections, produced between 1764 and 1787 for Brownlow Cecil, 9th Earl of Exeter. In Rome, Mosman was linked socially and professionally with the painter Mengs, the archaeologist Winckelmann, the painter-dealer Thomas Jenkins, and the restorer Bartolomeo Cavaceppi. His selection of sculpture reflects the revaluation of antique sculpture then being undertaken by Mengs and Winckelmann, and the commercial transactions of Jenkins and Cavaceppi. In addition to the narrow canon of masterpieces established by Mengs, Mosman documents recent additions to the Capitoline collection (purchases by Clement XII from the Albani and Odescalchi collections, and by Benedict XIV from the D'Este collection and from digger-dealers), and sculptures within the Barberini, Borghese, Casali, Farnese, Giustiniani, Ludovisi, Medici, Pighini, Spada, and Verospi family collections recently lauded by Winckelmann. Four drawings depict antique sculptures restored by Bartolomeo Cavaceppi and introduced onto the market in 1754/1755, 1764, 1766/1768 respectively; another two are of modern sculptures: a bronze statue of Mercury by Guglielmo della Porta in the Palazzo Farnese and a marble statue of Santa Susanna by François Duquesnoy in S. Maria di Loreto. T … [Click Below for Full Description]

CANTILLON, RICHARD
“Londres [Paris]: Fletcher Gyles”, 1755. Contemporary armorial calf, spine gilt, red morocco label. A few small spots. Fine. First edition of the book that is, “more emphatically than any other single work, the cradle of political economy” (Jevons). Published posthumously, Cantillon’s Essay on the Nature of Trade in General was cited by Adam Smith, Condillac, Quesnay, Harris, Postlethwayt, and many others. It is “the most systematic treatment on economic principles before the Wealth of Nations” (Roll), and Cantillon is the “founding father of modern economics” (Rothbard). Born in Ireland, Cantillon was active in banking in Paris for years. A man among boys in business, he made a fortune from John Law’s scheme. “Bankers fell like autumn leaves in Paris between 1717 and 1720, and as Higgs remarks, ‘Their losses were probably very heavy in 1720 and much of them went into Cantillon’s pocket’” (New Palgrave). He successfully defended himself in numerous lawsuits brought by victims of the Mississippi Bubble, but he eventually deemed it prudent to depart for England. In 1734 he was murdered by his recently-dismissed cook, who evidently robbed him and burned his house down, destroying his manuscripts among other things. While in Paris, Cantillon had written the Essai in English and translated it into French for a friend. That friend arranged for its publication more than two decades later in 1755. Cantillon covers, in analysis far surpassing that of his contemporaries, currency, foreign exchanges, banking, credit, and the international specie flow mechanism (which Schumpeter hailed … [Click Below for Full Description]

1755. Antique Master Print, titled: 'The Polling. Plate III.' - Satirical print on the corruption endemic in parliamentary elections in the 18th century (before the Great Reform Act). This shows a large group of people come to vote. A few hold pamphlets showing a hanged man. Corruption is indicated by a dying man being brought to vote, as well as a mentally disabled man. In the background a woman in a coach represents Britannia. Her coachmen are gambling and ignore that the coach is broken. Etching/engraving on wove (vellin) paper. Description: the series "The Humours of an Election", originally painted in 1755 and the prints published in 1758. These engravings are from "The Works of William Hogarth", published by Baldwin, Cradock and Joy in 1822 with the original plates restored by James Heath, engraver to His Majesty. The Heath edition was the last to print directly from Hogarth's original engraved plates. All 'Hogarth' prints appearing after this date are copies of these original plates. The earlier plates published by Cook between 1796-1803 are made after Hogarth and not the original plates by Hogarth. Artists and Engravers: Made by 'William Hogarth' after an anonymous artist. Engraved by Hogarth and Francois Morellon de la Cave (Le Cave). William Hogarth (1697-1764) was an reknown English painter, printmaker, social critic and cartoonist. Condition: Very good, given age. Scattered small stains in the margin. Paper weak on the upper pllatemark. A dampstain in the lower left, just beside the image. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plate : 'La Famille Royale, ou le Bouquet Cheri.' (The Royal family, or the cherished bouquet.) This plate shows a flower bouquet with the portraits of Louis XVIII (1755 - 1824) - Marie Therese, duchesse d'Angouleme (daughter of Marie-Antoinette and Louis XVII) - Charles, Comte d'Artois - Louis Antoine, duc d'Angouleme - Ferdinand, duc de Berry. In 1814 the Bourbons were restored to the throne of France. This engraving, published ca. 1815, puts the returning Bourbons at the center of a 'royal bouquet.' It is interesting that the duchesse d'Angouleme is placed in the second tier of flowers, just below the right hand side of Louis XVIII. Perhaps the engraving, which was no doubt created to promote joy in return of the Bourbon monarchy, was intending to capitalize on the memory of the French. They would remember their 'princess in the tower', daughter of the last king and queen, much more than her two cousins. Extremely rare item. Crayon style engraving on a vellin type paper. Description: This original antique master print was published ca. 1815. 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: This plate published in Paris by Madamme Ve. Chereau. Madame le Veuve Chereau (literally, The Widow Chereau, named Genevieve Marguerite) was a French print publisher in Paris. She went into business when she inherited the plates of her husband, the engraver F … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fielding, Henry
London: J. Roberts, 1755. First authorized edition of The Grub-Street Opera, second edition of The Masquerade. [vi], 56, [iv], 11, [1] pp., The Masquerade with separate title-page. 8vo. Disbound. Gatherings sprung, light offsetting to title-page. First authorized edition of The Grub-Street Opera, second edition of The Masquerade. [vi], 56, [iv], 11, [1] pp., The Masquerade with separate title-page. 8vo. The first authorized edition of Fielding's ballad opera following several piracies drawn from prompt books and memorial reconstructions. The play was first performed under the title The Welsh Opera on April 22, 1731 to great success. Fielding immediately began expanding the work, changing the title to The Grub-Street Opera, and planning a performance of the revised version for June. "In June 1731 The Grub-Street Opera, which ridiculed the royal family and the leaders of both political parties, was withdrawn at the Haymarket before it opened, almost certainly because of threats from the government" (ODNB). L.J. Morrissey, in his scholarly edition of The Grub-Street Opera (Edinburgh, 1973), shows that the imprint to this edition is undoubtedly false. It was likely printed by Andrew Millar in 1755 for his nonce collection of Fielding's plays. Booksellers later broke up the collections to sell the individual plays; indeed, the present copy shows evidence of having been removed from a binding. The Masquerade, Fielding's first surviving work, is known in only a handful of copies in its first edition; it is reprinted here with a separate title-page. Cross III, p. 293

Edition originale de la traduction française, donnée Elie de Joncourt.

Composé sous la supervision de Newton lui-même dans les derniers instants de sa vie, l’ouvrage contribua dans sa version anglaise, puis dans cette version française à la diffusion et à la vulgarisation internationale de l’œuvre du savant.
