Haywood, Eliza Fowler
London: Printed for T. Gardner at Cowley's Head, 1756. First edition. Bound to style in full calf with gilt and morocco label to spine. Contemporary ownership signature of "John Burch 1759" to Contents page. Overall a surprisingly square, fresh, and unmarked copy measuring 100 x 160mm (pages) and collating complete: [2], v, [1, blank], 279, [1, adverts]. Scarce at institutions, this conduct book is also rare in trade; it does not appear in the modern auction record and is the only first edition on the market. "Eliza Haywood has been rightly called an emblematic early English woman writer, and a case study in the politics of literary history. The time in which she wrote was the moment when the novel was becoming the culture's chief vehicle for moral and social instruction, and her technical innovations were part of this foundation. She contributed substantially to making the form a serious site for political, moral, and social enquiry and a new hegemonic apparatus" (ODNB). Having lived a varied life as an actress and author, widowed early, she engaged in affairs with literary luminaries of Samuel Johnson's circle while also collaborating with these male writers. She published her first of fifty-five novels in 1719; and she developed a reputation for "combining a romance plot with shrewd modern political and social commentary" with focus on "how gender determines life experiences and possibilities" (Backscheider). Late in her career, Haywood turned to the conduct book form to convey her ideas, with The Wife and its follow up The Husband being her best known examples.

[STIEGLITZ, Christian Ludwig].
VIII, 124 pp.Second French edition of an "influential" (BAL) work on garden design by Christian Ludwig Stieglitz (1756-1836), who would become the leading architectural historian of his generation. It was first published in German verse in 1798 as Gemählde von Gärten im neueren Geschmacke dargestellt (often erroneously dated 1796 after the entry in Berlin Kat.) and first translated into French prose in 1802. In the introduction Stieglitz ridicules the formality of the French and Dutch garden designs and praises those of the German and English. Slightly foxed throughout, the back of the title-wrapper strengthened and the plates are printed on paper with a slight blue/green cast; a good copy.l Ganay 151; cf. Berlin Kat. 3364-3365 (erroneously catalogued German & French eds.); Springer, p. 67 (German eds.); for Stieglitz: BAL 3161.

[AUTOGRAPH - FRANCE, ENGLAND & INDIA].
[7], [1 blank] pp.First draft of an autograph manuscript in French, with erasures and corrections, probably written by a diplomat or strategist, concerning the causes of Britain's defeat of France in India during the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) and analysing different ways to restore France to power on Indian soil by an alliance with the sultan Haider Ali Khan (1722-1782), who ruled Mysore and a large part of southern India and was one of the greatest enemies of the British East India Company. According to the unidentified diplomat who wrote this text, Haider Ali Khan was the only one who was able to defeat the British or challenge their supremacy in India. In this manuscript he describes the best strategy not only to join Haider Ali Khan, but also to negotiate with the British people on profitable Indian trade for both parties.Slightly worn and frayed around the edges, first page slightly dust-soiled, but still an interesting autograph manuscript in good condition.

They were drawn by Perkois (1756-1804) and Prins (1757-1806) ca. 1790 and engraved by Sallieth (1749-1791) as models for young artists to follow. The 1818 publication indicates that they had previously been issued individually but never before collected for publication in book form. The two loosely inserted prints have the exposed skin of the faces, necks, arms and hands printed in a soft shade of red with the rest in black, inked a la poupée.

La Haye: Pierre de Hondt, 1756. 4to (272 × 210 mm), pp. xvi, 125, [3] (publisher's adverts), plus engraved frontispiece and 39 plates (5 folding), all with contemporary hand colouring. Text lightly browned throughout, heavier to some gatherings towards the beginning, the plates unaffected. Contemporary porphyry mottled calf, gilt, panelled spine with 5 raised bands, red morocco label, gilt edges. Rubbed, with a little more wear to corners and a few abrasions, but a very good copy. Early letterpress-printed bookseller's label to verso of one preliminary ('Se vend a Toulouse, chez Dupleix et Laporte...'), inscriptions 'Fr. Jadelot' and 'Ex Libris Veillet' to verso of frontispiece. First edition in French of Natural History of the Corallines (1755), all the plates with contemporary hand colouring (ordinary copies with plain plates and deluxe coloured copies are noted in the publisher's adverts at the end, the latter described as 'en Grand Papier'). John Ellis, with Daniel Solander, confirmed that corals were animals, not plants as previously assumed, and his work provided the basis for the later understanding of coral reefs. 'Ellis's zoophyte descriptions and professionally drawn engravings, and his scientific approach, were outstanding. His two longest books, Natural History of the Corallines... and the posthumous Natural History of Zoophytes (1786, partly written by Solander), were seminal. In the 1750s he was one of the British Museum's first noteworthy scientific visitors. He became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1754 and was its Copley medallist in 1767' (Oxford DNB).

Old light stain to bottom margin of pp. ix-xvi (Table des Matieres). Some contemporary ink marginalia throughout, including to some of the plates. Very good copy in attractive binding.. French edition, translated from the original English edition of 1755. The first work to state the animal nature of corals, which had previously been regarded as marine plants. Although unsigned, some of the plates are after drawings by Ehret.John Ellis (c. 1710-1776) was a pioneering zoologist and microscopist who established the animal nature of zoophytes and laid the foundation of marine biology in Britain and Europe. Another important contribution to science was his study of micro-organisms led him to conclude that they caused putrefaction—some eighty years before Pasteur, to whom the discovery is usually attributed. He and James Badenach concurred that micro-organisms might also cause disease: they were perhaps the first in the world to reach this conclusion but their ideas were unpublished and overlooked. His two longest books, ‘Natural History of the Corallines’ (1755; French and Dutch edns, 1756; pirated German edn, 1767) and the posthumous ‘Natural History of Zoophytes’ (1786, partly written by Solander), were seminal.

This copy in an attractive Regency binding with an interesting English Catholic provenance: the Hornyold family of Worcestershire.

The church, with an attached monastery for monks of the Redemptorist order, was paid for by John Vincent Gandolfi, a Genoese silk merchant who had married into the Hornyold family and would inherit the Blackmore Estate in 1859. 12mo (140 × 85 mm), pp. vii, [1], 435, [1].

THOMSON, James.
Leipzig, in der Weidmannischen Handlung, 1756. First collected edition in German, with an introduction by Lessing, then still only 27. The translations were done by a literary society in Stralsund. Thomson’s bestselling The Seasons had first appeared in German in 1740, influencing poets such as Ewald von Kleist (Der Frühling, 1749) and Gessner; the culmination of its influence was Haydn’s Die Jahreszeiten in 1801. Here we find his plays, which Lessing praises as ‘masterpieces’, warmly commending them to German readers. The year before, the young playwright had published the English-inspired Miß Sara Sampson, the first German domestic tragedy of any importance. Goedeke IV/I, 371, 67; Price & Price, Literature 1066. Small 8vo (171 × 95 mm), pp. 14, 440; some light offsetting; neat small stamped initials (‘C. F.

His accomplishments in medicine, surgery, anatomy, physiology, botany, literature, bibliography, and public service were simply enormous, and he achieved distinction in all of them. Any one of his major work, or his exhaustive bibliographies, would have been enough to occupy the lifetime of a lesser man, but Haller carried on a vast correspondence with hundreds of scientists, wrote thousands of reports, composed poetry which was a landmark in the development of German literature, wrote on the history of medicine, and was active in public affairs."

Mount, T. Page and Sons, London 1756. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 44 x 54 cm. The English Pilot was an important British sea-atlas published from 1671 to 1803. Initially published by John Seller, publication of the atlas changed hands periodically, with other publishers including Charles Price, John Thornton, and the Mount & Page firm. The charts from the English Pilot were intended as working charts so there was an effort to make them accurate, although predictably, many seamen complained that the charts were consistently out of date and that changes were slow to appear, a charge leveled at virtually every British, French and American Chart maker, including the respective governments of these nations. Ironically, it was in no small part due to the proprietary nature of the information included in the maps and sailing directions that there was a tendency for commercial pilots to pass the information from mariner to chart-maker more slowly than might otherwise have been the case, although the chart makers on the Thames and otherwise were undoubtedly reluctant to immediately make each and every necessary correction, for fear of undermining the economic viability of their businesses.

Die Musik dazu ist von Herrn Wolfgang Amade Mozart, Kapellmeister, und wirklichen k.k. Kammer Kompositeur. [no place] [no printer] 1795. 8vo. 80 pp. Simple paper over limp boards decorated in brown pulled paste. Worn, staining throughout, stamp of "Haus Landfort" on title, faintly penned name of "J. A. Luyken" to upper left of inner front board. The complete libretto of The Magic Flute was first published by the time of the first performance at Schikaneder's theatre on Sept. 30, 1791 in Vienna. We have been unable to positively identify other copies of the present edition, relying only on pagination and printed date, in WorldCat; the Mozarteum catalogue of Libretti includes no examples of any Zauberflöte libretti printed in 1795. The present copy evidently belonged to the Amsterdam physician and botanist Johann Albert Luyken (1785-1867), who lived from 1823 at the country estate and former manor house Landfort in Megchelen ( Municipality Oude IJsselstreek ), in the Dutch province of Gelderland, located on the German border and with a history dating back to the fifteenth century. An amazing cultural phenomenon in the last decade of the eighteenth century and the first decades of the nineteenth century, there were known performances of The Magic Flute around the time of this publication in a number of cities throughout Europe, but with their printed libretti generally listing the respective locations.

[1], [1 blank], [14], 274, [30]; 54, [2] pp. Ad 1: Unrecorded first issue of the rare third edition of the Ghent pharmacopoeia, the first to call itself a "pharmacopoea" (instead of "antidotarium") in the title.This copy differs slightly from all others recorded in that it contains a somewhat different preface and approval, which is signed only by A.C.J. van Rossum and dated 1755. It therefore lacks the more expanded approval from 1756 of the professors of the University of Louvain, including that of Van Rossum, as well as the subsequent dedication to Empress Maria Theresa. The present variant is therefore almost certainly an earlier issue.Ad 2: New edition of the taxa, regulating the prices of pharmacists in Ghent. The previous version dates from 1690, and this new edition was published to reflect the changes made in the pharmacopoeia of 1756.With the binding worn at the spine and somewhat along the extremities.

Ad 1: Anet (2 copies); Daems & Vandewiele, p. 106 (3 copies); STCV (2 cop … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thümmel, Moritz August von, Schriftsteller (1738-1817).
Reskript: Da die Brauversuche der Gebrüder Schmidt in Saalfeld mißlungen seien, habe der Senat von Saalfeld beschlossen, ein Quantum von qualitativ hochwertigem Malz an den Coburger Hofbraumeister Müller zu senden, damit dieser einen weiteren Brauversuch unternehmen könne, um zu sehen, ob "solchergestalt gut Bier verschaffet werden könne." - Thümmel studierte seit 1756 Rechtswissenschaften in Leipzig. 1761 wurde er Kammerjunker des Erbprinzen Ernst Friedrich von Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld, 1763 Hofrat und 1764 Geheimer Hofrat. 1768-83 war er Geheimer Rat und Mitglied der Geheimen Ratskonferenz in Coburg. - Minimal gebräunt.
