        The Tradesmans Director or

      London - W Owen, 1756 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. A scarce eighteenth century book . Containing such instructions as will enable the shop-keeper to carry on his business with more ease and greater exactness than is usually done. Gives a good overview of the world of business and commerce in London in the 18th century. With additional page numbered *45 and 46* has been inserted between p 44 and 45. Though not the first of it's kind, this scarce pocket sized work provides a complete overview of various aspects of trade and book-keeping. Manuals of this kind had begun to appear since the late 17th century, and were usually aimed at a broad audience, in particular towards 'Gentleman'. Previously volumes sought, by claiming to appeal to all classes, to increase readership, as it was supposed that all could benefit from an understanding of book keeping, weights and measures, from Lord to apprentice. By contrast, this work aims itself squarely at a trade audience, and as stated in the preface, 'in the plainest language. . . nothing introudced without being explained in an easy and familiar method: Most of the books of this sort were either superior to common capacities and ordinary dealings, or hand introduced such loads of rubbish as were fitted more to increase the difficulty than to make this sort of knowledge useful and agreeable. ' Furthermore, this volume was released as a handy pocket-sized work, rather than more awkward octavos or folios that had more oftencome before. Complete collation unavailable, although appears to be complete. Condition: Rebound in quarter calf with marbled boards. Externally smart. Internally firmly bound. Pages are clean throughout with the occasional ink annotation. Imprint exised at foot of title page with loss of publication date, new front and rear endpapers, some pages toned and light spotting throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

      ANDREA BONDUCCI, 1756. GLI UFFICI DI M. TULLIO CICERONE E SOPRA DI ESSI COMMENTARJ DI GIURISPRUDENZA, D'ETICA FILOSOFICA, DI POLITICA E DI FILOLOGIA. OPERA DEDICATA A SUA ALTEZZA REALE IL SERENISSIMO PRINCIPE DON FILIPPO INFANTE DI SPAGNA DUCA DI PARMA PIACENZA GUASTALLA &C &C DAL MARCHESE ANDREA LUIGI DE SILVA SUO GENTILUOMO ALLA CAMERA - in Folio, (cm 33,00 x 24,00 ), pp. X, (2), 348 - Bella antiporta calcografica incisa da Carlo Gregori su invenzione di Tommaso Gentili con ritratto idealizzato dell'Arpinate assiso su uno scranno e circondato da figure di divinita', tra cui Ermes con il cappello frigio ed il caduceo e Pallade in abito guerriero; altre figure mitologico-allegoriche femminili attorniano la figura del sommo oratore, una delle quali sorreggente un fascio littorio, l'insegna di origine etrusca, costituita da un mazzo di verghe tenute insieme da corregge e da una scure, che fu simbolo dellâ??autorita' dello stato nellâ??antica Roma, poi tristemente ripresa dal fascismo in eta' moderna. Frontespizio con titolo in rosso e in nero con vignetta calcografica allegorica raffigurante Eracle armato di clava tra Atena ad Afrodite, con, sullo sfondo, un paesaggio silvestre con un tempio circolare posto sulla sommita' di un colle, incisa dal Faucci su invenzione del Gentili, con motto entro cartiglio "Est iter in silvis" e bordura circolare di fogliame. Dedica a stampa del Marchese Andrea Luigi De Silva, suo Gentiluomo di Camera, al Principe Filippo di Spagna, Duca di Parma, Piacenza e Guastalla. Capilettera ornati e due altri capilettera istoriati su rame in testa alla dedicatoria e alla prefazione; in calce alla c. VI, ultima della dedicatoria, vignetta calcografica con il blasone gentilizio del dedicatario stesso sorretto da putti, sovrastato da corona e affiancato da cannoni, stendardi, lance, olifanti bellici. Foltissime annotazioni su duplice colonna in calce al testo ciceroniano, uno dei commentari piu' ampi stesi nel Settecento per il "De Officiis" e dovuto allo stesso volgarizzatore. Bella versione settecentesca, elegantemente impressa, commendevole soprattutto per la voluminosita' ed il rigore del commento del De Silva. Strutturato in tre libri, il "De Officiis" e' uno dei capidopera del Cicerone filosofo, composto nel 44 a.C. e dedicato al figlio Marco, inviato l'anno prima ad Atene per approfondire gli studi di filosofia. In parte derivato dallo stoico Panezio, il trattato, conforme ai canoni della precettistica romana, si diffonde ampiamente sulle virtu' e i doveri, sui conflitti sorti da quello che modernamente chiameremmo il "pluralismo dei valori", sull'identita' in sede pratica dell'onesto con l'utile, valori che possono confliggere tra loro solo nella sfera teorica. Fra i documenti anche umanamente piu' intensi di Cicerone, il trattato e' steso in forma quasi colloquiale, piu' prossima alle lettere agli amici dell'Arpinate che alla prosa delle sue opera oratorie e filosofiche. Bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena; frontespizio con segni di antiche notazioni, tracce di gore al margine esterno per alcune pp, ma complessivamente esemplare fresco stampato su ottima carta pesante.

        GOTTLIEB MITTELBERGERS REISE NACH PENNSYLVANIEN IM JAHR 1750. UND RUKREISE NACH DEUTSCHLAND IM JAHR 1754.

      Frankfurt. 1756. - [8],120pp. Bound to style in antique half calf and marbled boards. Very good. A mid-18th century account of German colonists in Pennsylvania by compatriot and traveller Gottlieb Mittelberger, reprinted in Frankfurt from the initial Stuttgart edition of the same year. Mittelberger's narrative is highly valuable for its firsthand information on the state of colonial Pennsylvania just prior to the French and Indian War. In particular, he gives many details of religious and cultural practices, social customs, societal structure, aspects of trade and agriculture, prevalent illnesses, and Indian relations, and also provides a detailed and lengthy description of the hardships of the transatlantic journey. The work is also notable for its frank appraisal of sexual behavior in Pennsylvania, and its denunciation of indentured servitude. Mittelberger travelled to Philadelphia from Heilbronn in 1750, and became a music and German teacher, before he returned in 1754, disappointed by his experiences. Indeed, his account is intended as warning to Germans not to immigrate to the colonies. Not only was the voyage a miserable one, according to the author, but the German immigrants were at great risk of being exploited in indentured servitude, which was often the price of passage, and being put to work in horrific conditions. Beyond this danger, Mittelberger reports on a widespread lack of religious belief and a prevalence of loose morals that he finds to be overwhelming. A fascinating though highly critical report on Pennsylvania in the early 1750s. HOWES M705, "aa." SABIN 49761 (ref).

        Catálogo de los Nombres, Patrias, Edades, Entradas y Grados de los Sujetos de la Compañia de Jesus de esta Provincia de Nueva España

      Exceptional Mexican Colonial Catalogue of the Jesuits Fathers working in the Viceroyalty of New Spain (current Mexico and southern United States), a virtual who´s who of the Jesuit Order in the Viceroyalty; each entry begins with the name, county of origin (or region, most are Mexican-born, also from Guatemala), date of birth, date of entry to the Order and date of taking of habits. The catalogue is a unique insight to the human composition of the widespread Order, which only decades before had some of it´s members disproving the insularity of California, and making the first settlements in the region. The making of such catalogues of the members of the Order was by no means new, and several had been published in Mexico, all in Latin, however this is the only one in Spanish we have found; an earlier one, published in Mexico in 1751 "Catalogus Personarum, & Domiciliorum... Societas Jesu Mexicana", compiled by Juan Antonio Balthazar and Peter Zespedes, can possibly have served as foundation to this one. The printed edition is very rare, with three copies showing up in Wordlcat, none in the United States. This Spanish translation would appear to be unique. Several biographies, menologies, and chronics of the deeds and progresses of the Order´s activities in the Viceroyalty were published in the 17th and 18th centuries, however, at least to our knowledge, nothing of these characteristics in Spanish. Manuscript on paper, title illustrated within frame, clear handwriting, perfectly legible. Extremely rare, we were not able to trace any copies of this text in institutions. Provenance: bought from Adalberto Walther Meade, professor, historian and collector. Fr. Astrain, "History of the Society of Jesus in the Old Spanish Assistance". Gonzalez de Cossio "Ensayo Bibliografico de los Catalogos de Sujetos de la Compañia de Jesus en Nueva España".

Für ein sonst im Gebrauch zerschlissenes Werk in einem bemerkenswert guten Erhaltungszustand. Erweiterte Edition in der die "Artzney-Mittel" für die Kinder-Mütter in einer Abteilung mit eigenem Titelblatt zusammengetragen sind. Zum Schluss sind die Streitschriften mit dem Leipziger Prof. Petermann abgedruckt. Eines der einflußreichsten Hebammenbücher überhaupt, ein in Text und Abbildungen ganz originales Werk, das nicht auf Vorbildern wie Roesslin und Rueff fußt. Ein Lehrbuch, das für fast ein Jahrhundert ein Thesaurus und Berater war, aus dem Hebammen und Ärzte schöpften. Das Werk ist in Gesprächsform zwischen zwei "friedliebenden Wehemüttern" abgefaßt. Die großformatigen, klaren Abbildungen zeigen diverse Fehllagen, zu deren Behebung die Siegemundin verdienstvolle Neuerungen einführte. Der "doppelte Handgriff" bei der Wendung von Querlagen, sowie die Punktierung der Fruchtblase zur Stillung der Blutung der Placenta praevia verdanken ihre Einführung unserer Autorin. Die Siegemundin hat nur ihre Erfahrung zu Rate gezogen und die Natur zur Lehrmeisterin gemacht. - Ein "Rarissima" der älteren deutschen medizinischen Literatur und eine Zierde jeder gynäkologischen Bibliothek.Rare edition of this classic in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Justine Siegemundin was the most celebrated German midwife of the 17th century. In 1672 she obtained a copy of De Graff's book of generation, which started her on her career as a really scientific midwife. Basically self-taught she developed her skills to the degree that she was made Court Midwife by Frederic III and the royal family of Prussia. The book, a result of her own experience, is of major interest and importance for its original obstetrical illustrations not copied from Roesslin or Rueff. The fact that the work was written in German instead of Latin aroused a great deal of criticism. The major portion of the book consists of a dialogue between Justine and her pupil Christina. Generously illustrated with instructive copperplates, the "Siegemundin" had a great influence and new editions appeared up to 1756.cf. Garrison & Morton 6149 (1st. Ed. 1690) Hirsch V, 394-95 Thomas, Classical Contributions to Obstetrics and Gynecology, pp.54-59 Waller 8294 Fasbender 213-16 Neuburger-Pagel III, 894-96.

Nor can life or health subsist without a sufficiency of thinner juices intermixed with the red blood seeing the cruor deprived of its watery part, congeals and obstructs the smallest passages of the vessels, and kindles too great a heat." Would it be a misinterpretation to consider this statement as the first recognition of the condition in which thrombosis with gangrene occurs in the course of polycythemia? Haller was one of the first physicians who understood the value of blood examinations, and he confessed that he "could not perform a sufficient number of microscopic experiments on the red cells, which appeared very dense and convex." "His keen observations and recommendations were rapidly forgotten. Even a century later, microscopic examinations were not recognized in medicine. " Camille Dreyfus, Some Milestones in the History of Hematology, pp.1,11,12,27,63-64Haller's most important work was on the physiology of the blood vessels and of the nervous system, a subject to which the present volume makes an important contribution. ... His conclusion, that the capillaries are without contractility, became a foundation of medical science and practice for nearly two centuries. - cf.

        Patent of nobility donated by Maximilian Joseph, Maximilian I, King of Bavaria (1756-1825) to Peter Anton Kreusser (1765-1831 or 1832), composer, becoming Freiherr.

      - Patent of nobility donated by Maximilian Joseph, Maximilian I, King of Bavaria (1756-1825) to Peter Anton Kreusser (1765-1831 or 1832), composer, becoming Freiherr. Bavaria, Munich, d.d. 27 August 1823. Folio. No covers, only paper endpapers. 370 x 280 mm. (8) pages on vellum. Manuscript, calligraphic text with printed decorative margins. One immaculate hand painted coat-of-arms (signed: J. Georg Portner) in colour and gold. At the end the signature of king Maximilian Joseph. Other signatures: Graf von Richburg, P.J. von Baumüller. No seal. The patent of nobility states that Kreusser comes form an honourable Frankischen Bürgergeschlecht and that he obtained his wealth in other countries and subsequently applied for nobility. Peter Anton Kreusser was a German composer. Claiming to be of Swabian aristocrat stock he was born in Lengfurt (today Triefenstein). He began the Anglo-Bavarian branch to the Kreusser [Kreußer] family when he married Anne Rickets in London. Peter was the younger cousin of the composer George Anton Kreusser (1743-1802), who was a friend and collaborator of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and who moved to Paris. Peter moved there as well, where he served as a violinist. The French Revolution brought him to London, where his career as a composer began. During his time in London he lived at 44 Greek Street. He formed a close association with the Wornum family that extended over two generations and resulted in the Sickert family coming to live in England. In 1823 he returned to Munich. He died in Munich during a cholera. He wrote many romantic airs, divertimenti, sonatas and dances for the piano forte. Much of his work was dedicated to friends and associates, amongst them were Emily Huskisson, wife of William Huskisson. His Six Waltzes for the Piano Forte… (Op. 12), was published in London in 1810. Sixteen published compositions or arrangements by him are listed in the British Library Catalogue. Kreusser's daughter by Elizabeth Landry, Emillia, married the Italian Count Londron. Kreusser's son Franz had several children with interesting connections: his daughter Blanche (1839-1918) was lady-in-waiting to Queen Marie of Bavaria. H138

With a large folding engraved map (58 x 62 cm). Sprinkled brown paper on boards.

      Blake, p. 496; Pritzel 41369; Quaritch, De Belder collection II, 907; cf. Hirsch VI, p. 339 (on the author). First and only edition of an "eccentric" pharmaceutical work by George-Christophe Wu¨rtz (1756-1823), a French philosopher and physician. In this work he "attempts to create a map of mental and physiological functions with herbal simples arranged according to the localities they effect. This is illustrated by the plate with the herbs appearing as stars as in a celestial chart" (Quaritch). The text, divided into two parts, discusses the method used and the scientific nature of the relations he found. Due to the completely new approach the present work earned him a respected position within the French and German medical field. Foxed throughout, and with a water stain in the outer margin of the first 50 pages, otherwise a good copy. Binding rubbed along the extremities, spine damaged at the head and foot.

        Elemens d'algèbre, traduits de l'Anglois et augmentés de quelques remarques par Mr. de Joncourt. -

      Amsterdam, Arkste'e & Merkus, 1756. 2 voll. In-4. Legature coeva in pelle maculata, dorsi con nervi, doppi tasselli e fregi oro; qualche abrasione. Un bel ritratto dell'autore inc. in rame, e 9 tavole. ripiegate inc. in rame. (2), XLVIII, 359 pp.; (4), XX, 403 pp.; strappi in 4 carte alla fine del vol. I riparati, tavole un po' brunite e qualche minima ingiallitura, nel complesso però, buon esemplare marginoso in solide legature del tempo. Prima edizione in francese. L'autore, pur avendo perso la vista da piccolo, divenne professore di matematica a Cambridge, guadagnandosi la stima di Newton e di Lord Chesterfield; quest'ultimo, dopo aver assistito ad alcune sue lezioni, lo descrisse come un professore che pur non potendo usare i propri occhi, insegnava agli altri ad usarli!. Nel primo volume viene anche trattata la "matematica palpabile", che permette d'eseguire operazioni d'aritmetica usando solo il tatto. Smith, History of Mathematics, I, 454. DNB XVIII, 822: «The treatise is a model of careful exposition, and reminds one of the 'Algebra' which Euler dictated after having been overtaken by blindness. It contains an account of Euclid's doctrine of proportion, a good deal of what we now call mensuration, a consideration of Diophantine problems, and of magic squares, and it finishes with the solution of biquadratic equations». First French edition. With a fine portrait and 9 folding engr. plates. Contemp. mottled calf, spines with leather labels and richly gilt; a little rubbed, corners worn. Tears in 4 leaves towards end of vol. I repaired, plates a little browned and some occasional minor foxing, but a good copy.

        Le gentilhomme cultivateur, ou corps complet d'agriculture. Translated from the English by Dupuy Demportes. 16 vols. Paris/Bordeaux, 1761-1764.

      16 vols., together appr. 6500 pp. With 21 folding engravings. Cont. half calf, covers worn at the corners. Nice set. Although the titlepage indicates that this multi-volume agricultural encyclopedia was translated from the English original of Thomas Hale, Oberlé writes that the French author Jean Baptiste Dupuy Demportes in fact only borrowed the general idea and some of Hale's observations. Hale's original publication was published in London in 1756 as The complete body of husbandry. Le gentilhomme cultivateur is an important source for the knowledge of the agricultural history of the 18th century, presenting a very complete description of farming including subjects like the growing and deseases of animals, fishing, fruits & vegetables etc. The 7th volume is of viticultural interest with descriptions of vineyards in Haute-Bourgogne, Provence and Jura.

        The Life and Exploits of the Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote de la Mancha

      London: Printed for J. and R. Tonson and S. Draper, and R. and J.Dodsley,, 1756. Translated from the original Spanish by Charles Jarvis. The third edition in two volumes. 2 volumes, quarto (297 x 228 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, titles gilt to green and black labels to spines, spines richly gilt in compartments, single rule frame gilt to covers, turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges black, others olivine, green page marker. Frontispiece to vol. I and 68 copper engraved plates by Vandergucht and Virtue, after John Vanderbank. Single leaf of card with amateur pencil drawing of plate laid-in. Expert restoration to inner hinges. Slight rubbing to extremities, occasional light foxing; an excellent set. A handsomely bound copy of the third Jarvis edition. Charles Jarvis, a friend and one-time art tutor of Alexander Pope, was primarily an artist and an art collector. He also had literary ambitions, and this translation of Don Quixote, his major literary undertaking, published posthumously and frequently reprinted, is generally considered to be close in spirit to the original. The illustrations in this edition were originally commissioned in 1723 by the publishers J. and R. Tonson to illustrate Don Quixote in the original Spanish; this eventually appeared as a lavish four-volume quarto edition in 1738, the plates used repeatedly by the publishers. "This project, for which Vanderbank's initial designs were preferred over Hogarth's, appears to have preoccupied Vanderbank, perhaps almost empathetically, for the remainder of his life" (ODNB). Vol. I contains, as issued, The Life of Michael de Cervantes Saavedra by Don Gregorio Mayáns and Siscár, "his Catholick Majesty's Library-Keeper", translated from the Spanish by Mr. Ozell.

The long poem is full of interesting details and unknown facts of the Amsterdam everyday life during the mid-seventeenth century, the peak of the Dutch Golden Age. It is a desired book by many bibliophiles, as it is placed in the Elzevier collection. The name of the author, Pierre Le Jolle, is probably a pseudonym; it is thought that his name was Pierre Langle (born in 1630).Fine copy of this poem full of details of everyday life in Amsterdam in the 17th-century.
