        A Vindication of Natural Society, Or, a View of the Miseries and Evils Arising to Mankind From Every Species of Artificial Society : In a Letter to Lord ****

      London : Printed for M. Cooper, 1756-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. 1st ed. Fine modern leather binding. Gilt ruled with, 5 raised bands. Marbled end pages. New end pages. [4], 106. Hardcover. Fine binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages. Todd 3a; BMC 4:675.182. An important work of political philosophy. Edward Burke was a noted 18th century Irish political theorist and philosopher. He is best known for his political writings in support of the American Revolution and against the French. In the vindication of natural society, Burke satirizes the deism of Lord Bolingbroke. Burke presents an alternative model of society without civil government, church or substantial private property in an attempt to reduce Bolingbroke’s position a reductio ad absurdum. (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosphy) The text contains a warning of the "danger of measuring civil institutions by the test of pure reason..." PMM 239. Godwin attributed the first anarchist writing to Edmund Burke's A Vindication of Natural Society. "Most of the above arguments may be found much more at large in Burke's Vindication of Natural Society; a treatise in which the evils of the existing political institutions are displayed with incomparable force of reasoning and lustre of eloquence…" – footnote, Ch. 2 Political Justice.

        On the advantage of taking the mean of a number of observations

      London: Davis & Reymers, 1756. Classic of Statistics and Data Processing Simpson, Thomas (1710-61). On the advantage of taking the mean of a number of observations, in practical astronomy. In: Philosophical Transactions 49 (1755), pp. 82-93. Whole number, 4to. [16], 444pp. Fold. plates, text illustrations. London: L. Davis & C. Reymers, 1756. 255 x 195 mm. (uncut & unopened). Quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Some dust-soiling and fraying to edges, but very good. First Edition. Simpson's paper is considered a milestone in statistical inference, as well as the earliest formal treatment of any data-processing practice. Simpson was the first to attempt to prove mathematically that the mean result of several observations is nearer to the truth than any single observation (the law of large numbers). A key feature of his paper was that Simpson chose to focus "not on the observations themselves . . . but on the errors made in the observations, on the differences between the recorded observations and the actual position of the body being observed. . . . [This] was the critical step that was to open the door to an applicable quantification of uncertainty" (Stigler, Hist. Statistics, pp. 90-91; see also pp. 88-94). "Simpson was the first to characterize the errors in observations as independent events, taking positive and negative values with equal probabilities, and the first to provide a mathematical expression for the probability that the error in the mean result will lie between assigned limits" (Todhunter, History of Probability, p. 309). Also present in this volume are two important medical papers: Jonathan Wathen's "A method proposed to restore the hearing, when injured from an obstruction of the tuba Eustachiana" (G-M 3356), describing his method of relieving catarrhal deafness by injections into the Eustachian tube through a catheter passed into the nose; and John Machin's "An uncommon case of a distempered skin" (G-M 4013), containing the first known description of ichthyosis hystrix.

        Autograph letter signed to Mr. Lepard

      Charnock, John (1756-1807). Autograph letter signed to Mr. [J. P.] Lepard. N.p., 27 May 1802. 1 page. 150 x 152 mm. Offered with an engraved portrait of Charnock measuring 162 x 128 mm.From the author of A History of Marine Architecture (1801-1802) to the publisher J. P Lepard, regarding payment for printing costs of the History:"The Stationers Printers and other persons employd in manufacturing the History of Marine Architecture having according to the arrangement made originally by me with them for the liquidation of their accounts agreed to receive in payment the bills of the different booksellers. I have taken the liberty of enclosing your account and will in a few days transmit to you a bill for the amount of the same agreeable to proposals which if you will be pleased to accept will much oblige Sirs your very hum. srvt. John Charnock.Charnock's History of Marine Architecture was the first serious study of British naval architecture. Written at the start of the Napoleonic Wars, Charnock's work "followed the opinions of sea officers in over-praising French ships and designs at the expense of their British equivalents establishing a tradition that has only recently been reassessed" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). Lepard is not listed in the imprint of Charnock's work, but was evidently involved in some aspect of its production.

The Huth - Slater - Brett-Smith copy, with the Huth bookplate. Despite the romantic framing story provided on the title-page, the text is largely derived from Shirley's The Triumph of Wit (1688), and the cant entries in B.E.'s A New Dictionary of the Terms Ancient and Modern of the Canting Crew (1699). Perhaps the gang member was carrying one of these books, or was newly initiated and required a ready translation of his confederates jargon? The Scoundrel's Dictionary nevertheless has its own charms. A product of a time of rising crime, when criminals were often viewed as popular culture heroes, its rough-and-ready appearance and pocket size fit it for practical or street use while its studious predecessors would have been more likely to be consulted or encountered in a library.

Volume 1 was first published in 1732, with subsequent editions in 1734 and 1739. Both volumes were reprinted once more in London in the eighteenth century, with a further edition in Dublin. The two volumes were considered of unequal merit, the first being received as a high authority and the second with much greater caution. Authorship of the volumes is uncertain, although Viner thought the first volume was the work of a Mr. Pooley. · References: Johnson 73 (5 copies); Wallace 490; S&M 1:286(6); Worrall 3-4; Bridgman 111; Cowley 245, 246; ESTC T97047..

        [Avanzo del Mausoleo d'Elio Adriano]

      1756Acquaforte in due fogli uniti, complessivamente mm. 475x722 alla battuta + ampi margini bianchi. L'incisione fa parte della raccolta "Le antichità romane", Tomo IV, tavola VII. Al margine inf. esaustiva descrizione della tavola: "Nella Tav. precedente si sono dimostrati gli Avanzi del Mausoleo e del Ponte d'Elio Adriano sino da loro Fondam.ti nella presente si riporta il Taglio, o sia Spaccato de' medesimi....". Nel 1756 Piranesi studiò e misurò una quantità innumerevole di edifici dell'antica Roma. La conseguenza fu la pubblicazione in quattro volumi di viste degli antichi monumenti romani, le Antichità Romane de' tempo della prima Repubblica e dei primi imperatori. Tali vedute mirano a magnificare la grandiosità dell'architettura romana e spesso le dimensioni sono volutamente esasperate nella deformazione prospettica: per esempio in questa tavola le Fondamenta del Mausoleo di Adriano, trasformate in una montagna gigantesca di cui non si riesce a vedere la cima. Nella prefazione Piranesi lamenta sul degrado, e la manomissione dei resti archeologici, ponendosi tra i primi ad aver chiara l'esigenza di una specifica salvaguardia dei monumenti, e della necessità di documentarli con immagini.

        British Education: Or, The Source of the Disorders of Great Britain. Being An Essay towards proving, that the Immortality, Ignorance, and false Taste, which so generally prevail, are the natural and necessary Consequences of the present defective System of Education. With An Attempt to shew, that a Revival of the Art of Speaking, and the Study of our own Language, might contribute, in a great measure, to the Cure of those Evils. In Three Parts. I. Of the Use of these Studies to Religion, and Morality; as also, to the Support of the British Constitution. II. Their absolute Necessity in order to refine, ascertain, and fix the English Language. III. Their Use in the Cultivation of the Imitative Arts: shewing, that were the Study of Oratory made a necessary Branch of this Education of Youth; Poetry, Musick, Painting, an Sculpture, might arrive at as high a Pitch of perfection in England, as ever they did in Athens or Rome

      London: Printed for R. and J. Dodsley..., 1756. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. 8vo, 203 x 116 mms., pp.[ii], [xl], including half-title, 536, later 18th century mottled calf, rebacked, new morocco label, a very good copy, with the later armorial bookplate of John S. Pakington (1799 - 1800) on the front paste-down end-paper. Pakington, the first Baron Hampton, entered Parliament in 1832 and was noted for his interest in reforming education. Thomas Sheridan (1719 - 1788) combined his talents as actor and theatre manager with those of a proselytiser for British education and orthoepy. The work was first published in Dublin. Thomas Miller, in "The Formation of College English: A Survey of the Archives of Eighteenth-Century Rhetorical Theory and Practice" (Rhetoric Society Quarterly, 1990) notes, "The Irishman who had the greatest impact on college English was not a college professor but a public advocate of English studies, the elocutionist Thomas Sheridan.... Sheridan's argument that elocution would preserve the British way of life become more understandable when read against his specific proposals for teaching English in Ireland in order to keep the gentry from emigrating to learn how to become more English."

        La noblesse militaire et commerçante; en réponse aux objections faites par l'auteur de la noblesse militaire.[Ensemble] La noblesse commerçable et ubiquiste. [Ensemble] La noblesse oisive.

      Chez Duchesne 1756 - - Chez Duchesne, A Amsterdam & Paris _1756, 156 ; 111 (1) ; 23 (1) p., 156 (1) ; (2) 111 ; 23 (1)p., relié. - Edition originale de ces trois traités. Plein veau brun glacé marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de 5 grands fleurons. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de queue élimée. Jolie reliure, au fer peu courant. La querelle sur la noblesse militaire et commerçante fut originellement lancée par l'ouvrage de l'abbé Coyer qui engageait la noblesse à s'engager dans le commerce, ce premier livre fut suivi de réponses, d'objections et de libelles durant toute l'année 1756. Notre exemplaire regroupe trois essais relatifs à cette polémique. On sait que la noblesse étant primitivement militaire, le commerce fut longtemps considérée comme l'oeuvre de basses classes. L'ouvrage de l'abbé Coyer fit l'effet d'une bombe, l'argument contraire d'une noblesse d'épée fut défendue par le chevalier d'Arq. Les deux premiers essais tentent de trouver une solution raisonnable à ce dilemme en examinant les principes et thèses des deux idées opposées. Le dernier essai est un essai au ton satirique sur l'éloge de l'oisiveté, prenant ainsi à contre courant toute la polémique sur les fonctions de la noblesse. 156 (1) ; (2) 111 ; 23 (1)p. .

Amsterdam & Leipzig, Arkstee & Merkus, 1756. 8:o. VIII,+ 328 s. Titeln tryckt i rött och svart. Enstaka obetydliga fläckar. Pappersförtunning i marginalen på s. 33. Liten pappersförlust i nedre marginalen på s. 117. Fint samtida pergamentband med rödbrun guldornerad titeletikett längst ned på ryggen, röda snitt. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Jämför Warmholtz 8533, not. Ny upplaga av Jean Roussets utökade andra upplaga av den franska översättningen av Pufendorfs "Dissertatio de foederibus inter Sueciam et Galliam", från 1708. Denna upplaga är okänd för Warmholtz. Den första franska upplagan utgavs 1709 under titeln, "Dissertation de Mr de Pufendorf sur les alliances entre la France et la Suede" och Roussets utökade upplaga kom 1745. Pufendorfs verk utgör i Roussets utgåva s. 1-64, medan resten är tillägg av Rousset, med bl.a. brev av Olivekrantz, Bengt Oxenstierna, Karl XI, Fredrik I, men även av "Suite de la dissertation de Puffendorff jusqu'à l'an 1686". En outgiven svensk översättning, föranstaltad av Bengt Oxenstierna, hade Warmholtz i manuskript. Pufendorfs verk är en utredning om resultaten av Sveriges tidigare allianser med Frankrike, skriven på begäran av Karl XI 1680, då denne funderade på att ånyo ingå en allians för att förstärka finanserna. Pufendorfs slutsats var att Frankrike alltid svikit givna löften. Historikern Jean Rousset (1686-1762) skrev ett stort antal verk om diplomatiska förhandlingar och fördrag

        A Short History of the Israelites. With an Account of their Manners, Customs, Laws, Polit and Religion. Being an useful Introduction tot he Reading of the Old Testament. Translated from the French of Abbé Fleury, Author of the Ecclesiastical History. By Ellis Farneworth

      London, Printed for J. Whiston and B. White...and R. Baldwin..., 1756. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this translation. 8vo, 194 x 119 mms., pp. viii, 246, contemporary lightly speckled calf, gilt spine, red morocco label; lower front joint very slightly cracked, but a very good copy, with the inscription "Allen Wheeler/ E. Coll. Wadh./ Oxon." on the title-page, and in another contemporary hand on the recto of the blank leaf before the title-page, "Fleury's Manner of the Jews is an admirable little Book." Wheeler (1776 - 1823) matriculated at Wadham College, Oxford in 1792; he was later headmaster of Worcester College. Fleury (1640 - 1723) published Moeurs des Israélites in 1681. John Nichols, in his Literary Anecdotes of the Eighteenth Century quotes a letter from Thomas Bedford who claims that he, not Farneworth, was the translator. The entry for Farneworth in the ODNB doesn't mention this as one of his translations, but cites Nichols' report that Farneworth was obliged to "hawk round the town" the translation of Machiavelli. The work was reviewed at length (pp. 321 - 333) in the October, 1756 issue of The Monthly Review, with extensive quotation from the book and the rather lame conclusion, "the extracts we have already given will be sufficient to convey to our Readers a just idea of the whole performance, and likewise render it unnecessary to say any thing of the translation." Maslen and Lancaster. Bowyer ledgers, 4044. 500 copies printed.

        M. Fabius Quinctilianus His Institutes of Eloquence: Or, The Art of Speaking in Public in Every Character and Capacity. Translated into English after the Best Latin Editions. With Notes, Critical and Explanatory by William Guthrie

      London: Printed for T. Waller..., 1756. FIRST EDITION. 2 volumes. 8vo, 206 x 125 mms., pp. xxxiv, 396; [ii], 568, contemporary calf, red morocco labels; very slight wear to front joint of volume 1, but a very good and attractive set, with the "Auchincruive" bookplate on the front paste-down end-paper of each volume. A commentary on Quintilian published in 1686 by John Warr (fl. 1648–1649) seems to be the first attempt to render a portion of Quintilian's Institutes in English, followed by this first complete translation by William Guthrie (?1708 - 1770). Another new translation by J. Patsall was published in 1774, who comments in his Preface that he had envisioned a translation of Quintilian just before Guthrie's was published, ungraciously remarking that, "It was necessary to give time for the judgment of the Public upon Mr. Guthrie's performance; but it was found not favourable to him."

A remarkable and most attractive sammelband of eight French, Dutch, and Belgian art auction catalogues. All of them are rare. I. Jean Omer Joly de Fleury (1700-55), a member of a prominent and wealthy family, was an important collector of prints, drawings, books, scientific instruments, and natural history objects. We learn from Gabriel Martin's preface that, due to the collector's sudden death, the prints and drawings would be sold "as found" in portefeuilles and the large collection of specimens again, would be sold "as found," in the drawers. Nevertheless, the collection is quite well catalogued and we can gather an excellent idea of the contents. Dezallier d'Argenville described Joly's collection in 1755, calling it "famous." He illustrates some of the specimens. II. A fine sale of 847 lots of prints and 19 lots of books with plates. Very rare; no copy in OCLC. III. 116 lots. OCLC locates only one copy, at the BN. IV. A painter's collection of art. 443 lots including paintings, drawings, prints, and reliefs. Collin de Vermont (1693?-1761), was "a pupil of Rigaud and Jouvenet. He studied in Rome and entered the Académie in 1725. In 1727, he was one of the artists to work on decorations for the Apollo Gallery in the Louvre."-Benezit, III, p. 1244. OCLC locates only one copy, at the BN. V. 300 lots of paintings by Rubens, van Dyck, Breughel, Wouwermans, and Teniers. Very rare; no copy in OCLC. VI. Benjamin da Costa, a member of the prominent Anglo/Dutch Jewish family, formed a small but important collection of paintings. 90 lots. Very rare; no copy in OCLC. VII. Adrien Maurice, duc de Noailles (1678-1766), had a brilliant military career and served in the wars of Louis XV in Italy and Germany. He was appointed a marshal of the French Army in 1734. The duc de Noailles was also a fiscal advisor to Louis XV and unsuccessfully recommended financial prudence. This catalogue contains only 88 lots but we find paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Titian, Raphael, Carracci, Dürer, Breughel, Rembrandt, etc. OCLC locates only one copy, at the BN. VIII. One of the most important art sales in Holland of the period. 117 lots of paintings (Wouwerman, Ruysdael, and others), 172 lots of drawings, 227 lots of prints, 85 lots of illustrated books, 20 lots of instruments, 192 lots of medals, and 29 lots of "Diverses Raretés." Not in OCLC. Fine copies. ❧ I. Lugt 906. N.B.G., Vol. 26, col. 861. II. Lugt 1404. III. Lugt 1395. IV. Lugt 1181. V. Lugt 1006. VI. Lugt 1400. VII. Lugt 1654. VIII. Lugt 1528. .
