        A New and Accurate Description of the Present Great Roads and the Principal Cross Roads of England and Wales, Commencing at London and continuing to the farthest Parts of the Kingdom...

      London, England: R. & J. Dodsley, 1756. First [and only?] edition. In contemporary [?] or very early full leather binding of brown calf. Boards present but completely and cleanly detached. The binding much rubbed and dessicated, especially along the spine. The hubbed spine bearing, in blind-stamp, "Roads of England." Also, at the spine tail, in much-rubbed gilt, the date 1756. The firmly bound text block retains great integrity. 7 x 4.5 inches. On rag content, laid paper. With title page, 6 unnumbered pages, 168 and lxiv numbered pages. Title page states, Price Bound Four Shillings. With a handsome tail-piece engraving at p. 161 and at p. xl. Tipped in to the FEP opposite page lxiv is a large fold-out B&W map with decorative cartouche, Kitchin's most Accurate Map of the Roads of England and Wales: with the Distances by the Mile-Stones, and other most exact Admensurations between Town & Town. Map measures 14.5 x 14.25 inches (37 x 36 cm). The map in remarkable condition; just a hint of age-toning. Book's pastedowns and opposite FEPs with glue off-settings. Front pastedown with the handsome armorial/pictorial bookplate of R.P.L. Booker. A blank front FEP with the inscription, likely in his own hand, "R. P. Lee Booker, Eton" in very small neat ink writing. Preliminaries lightly to moderately age toned. Tiny tear to middle of p. 15. Else a rather clean copy. Downgraded to Good Plus chiefly on account of the poor state of the binding. Deemed worthy of custom rebinding or restoration. This is a study of the then-present principal roads of England and Wales, with detailed descriptions of way-stations, landmarks, distances, &c. Includes a section about the itinerary of Antoninus and Roman stations in England. Perhaps the most remarkable and significant feature of the book is the fold-out map, a map that seldom survives in extant copies of the book. A rare book in any condition. R. P. Lee Booker [died 1922?] was educated at Winchester and New College, Oxford, where he gained a first class in Mods. and a second class in Lit. Hum. in 1887. No later than 1888 he was appointed to the faculty at Eton College, Windsor, eventually serving as a House Master. Booker apparently served in WWI. By 1920 Booker had left Eton in hopes that he would find suitable employment elsewhere, though he made some critical remarks about the education system. He commented on the difficulty of getting his work printed. Booker was exceptionally interested in English antiquity, archaeology and history. He was a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries [FSA]. Specific interests apparently included: Prehistoric monuments and earthworks; Roman monuments and Roman earthworks; English ecclesiastical monuments; English secular monuments. In that regard, and commencing around 1908, he was active in contributing extensively to an inventory of the ancient and historical monuments and constructions connected with or illustrative of the contemporary culture, civilization and conditions of life of the people in England from the earliest times to the year 1700.. Presumed First Edition. Disbound. Good Plus. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Association Copy.

Leather bound. "In 1662, the newly formed 'Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge' was granted a charter to publish by King Charles II and on 6 March 1665, the first issue of Philosophical Transactions was published under the visionary editorship of Henry Oldenburg, who was also the Secretary of the Society. The first volumes of what was the world's first scientific journal were very different from today's journal, but in essence it served the same function; namely to inform the Fellows of the Society and other interested readers of the latest scientific discoveries. As such, Philosophical Transactions established the important principles of scientific priority and peer review, which have become the central foundations of scientific journals ever since."The early years of the Philosophical Transactions were not published yearly as today. The first twelve volumes were printed as abridged volumes from the years 1722 to 1756 and cover the Philosophical Transactions from its inception in 1662 to until 1750. This is volume ten, part II in this case (part I covered the first two parts, this volume parts III and IV as noted).

        North Sea antique chart - Mount and Page.

      ?A Chart of Part of the North Sea from the South Foreland to Burnham Flatts, and from Callis Schelling Isle??Copper engraving from ?The English Pilot Describing The Sea-Coasts, Capes, Head-Lands, Soundings, Sands, Shoals, Rocks and Dangers, The Bays, Roads, Harbours, Rivers and Ports in the Whole Northern Navigation?? published by W. and J. 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.

        ALL THE ORATIONS OF DEMOSTHENES, PRONOUNCED TO EXCITE THE ATHENIANS AGAINST PHILIP, KING OF MACEDON. Translated into English; Digested and Connected, So as to form a regular History of the Progress of the Macedonian Power: with Notes Historical and Critical.

      London W. Johnston 1756 - The First Edition of Thomas Leland's acclaimed translation into English. With a large multi-folding map of the geography of Magna Graecia. 4to, handsomely bound in fine three-quarter polished calf over marbled boards to contemporary style, the spine with raised bands blind ruled, contrasting red and green morocco lettering labels gilt lettered and ruled in gilt, a rare, untrimmed copy still with the printer's edges. [xxiv], [6], 172, [3] pp. A very handsome and beautifully preserved copy, edges untrimmed, the pages crisp and clean and unpressed. FIRST EDITION OF THOMAS LELAND'S ACCLAIMED TRANSLATION OF THIS GREAT CLASSICAL WORK. Demosthenes particularly, is considered to embody the model of the ancient political orator, and might well be regarded as the greatest orator of all time. He began as a speech writer and worked his way to the position of prominent politician, earning the admiration of the Greeks by constantly urging resistance to the encroachments of Philip II of Macedon as he threatened Athens. He played a great and important role in negotiating public policy towards the Phillippic threat in the following years. A prolific orator and statesman, sixty-one of his speeches have survived and many are translated here into English. Especially significant are the inclusion of his speeches regarding the Phillippic threat. Starting in 352 BC, Demosthenes began a series of speeches to excite Athenians against the military encroachment of Philip, King of Macedonia (and father of Alexander the Great). Though ultimately defeated, Demosthenes continued to use his great oratory powers to fight against the Macedonians for fifteen years. Thomas Leland, eminent historian and fellow of Trinity College Dublin published this translation from the Latin in 1756. Leland had earlier published THE HISTORY OF THE LIFE AND REIGN OF PHILIP, KING OF MACEDON, an important work on early Macedonia and Greece (copies available). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Le Antichità Romane di Giamb.Piranesi Archit.Venez TOMO TERZO contenente gli avanzi de' monumenti sepolcrali di Roma e dell'Agro Romano

      1756. Acquaforte, 1756, firmata in lastra, in basso a destra. Dal tomo terzo de Le Antichità Romane, prima edizione edita da Bouchard e Gravier. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La prima edizione dell'opera, in quattro tomi, fu pubblicata a Roma nel 1756 nella stamperia di Angelo Rotili a Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne, dai signori Bouchard e Gravier, librai e mercanti in Roma con sede presso San Marcello al Corso. La raccolta conteneva un ritratto del Piranesi, inciso da Felice Polanzani, e recava una dedica a James Caulfield conte di Charlemont, dedica poi eliminata in seguito ad un litigio. Di questa edizione originale, che venne alla luce nel maggio del 1756, sono note tre diverse tirature, connesse con le vicende del litigio con lord Charlemont, vicende documentate dal Piranesi stesso nelle sue "Lettere di Giustificazione" del 1757. Le diverse tirature sono riconoscibili tra loro proprio nel frontespizio del primo tomo, quello originariamente dedicato al nobile inglese, che successivamente si presenta con dedica e stemma araldico abraso, quindi con l'aggiunta di una dedica dell'autore "Aevo Suo Posteri set Utilitari Publicae". Henry Focillon , nel suo saggio del 1918, suppone che il Piranesi prepari ed incida le tavole per l'opera tra il 1750 ed il 1756, tuttavia elementi architettonici fanno risalire talune al 1746. In realtà le tavole più antiche utilizzate nella raccolta risalgono probabilmente ad anni ancora precedenti, come sembra suggerire sia l'estrema complessità dell'opera, legata ad un lunghissimo lavoro di preparazione e ricerca, sia l'oscillazione stilistica riscontrabile comparando le varie tavole. La grandiosità delle Antichità Romane del Piranesi tuttavia non sta solamente nel grande lavoro grafico prodotto dall'artista; l'opera risulta infatti fondamentale come innovamento metodologico nel quadro dell'archeologia a lei contemporanea, con l'utilizzo di scritti che sono essenziali per comprendere il pensiero dell'autore e l'innovamento della metodo piranesiano. Si può quindi sostenere, come giustamente fa notare il Focillon, che l'artista veneziano fondi l'archeologia moderna. Questa innovazione, comporta però un enorme stacco e una grande divergenza con il pensiero e la cultura ufficiale ed accademica del periodo, di origine anglosassone, causando enormi polemiche di cui il Piranesi fu bersaglio ed il fiorire di una malevola letteratura aneddotica intorno alla sua persona, il cui scopo era quello di ristabilire l'egemonia minacciata della cultura a cui reagiva. Il principale pensiero espresso nelle Antichità Romane consiste nel documentare e conservare in effige un patrimonio monumentale che andava di giorno in giorno sgretolandosi, linea di condotta che andava contro l'atteggiamento culturale di amatori ed antiquari, il cui piacere era puramente estetico, non disdegnando all'occorrenza l'asporto di frammenti anche vistosi di antichità a titolo di collezionismo o alla stregua di souvenir. La principale novità della sua impostazione consiste nell'unificare in un solo momento le operazioni di scavo, di rilievo, le indagini strutturali e la misurazione con lo studio delle fonti letterarie, a cui egli fa riferimento diretto. Questo momento di unificazione è rappresentato dallo studio topografico, che unito alla tecnica di rilievo, alla conoscenza dei materiali e delle tecniche antiche, allo scavo ed al sopralluogo dava luce all'archeologia, ovvero lo studio della storia antica. I quattro volumi dell'opera rappresentano pertanto il nucleo centrale, il perno stesso su cui si incentra e si svolge l'intera opera piranesiana, costituendo il punto di arrivo e messa a fuoco di un metodo d'indagine e conoscenza dell'antica città di Roma e allo stesso tempo il punto di partenza per le opere successive di argomento analogo e complementare, che possiamo considerare come dimostrazioni ulteriori della sua interpretazione. Le Antichità quindi si possono considerare come lo sforzo di fornire un quadro unitario della città dalle origini al periodo degli ultimi imperatori, attraverso l'individuazione dei monumenti delle zone e degli spazi, ai quali vengono affiancati gli aspetto prosaici e quotidiani della città, rappresentati dai ponti e dalle strade, che contribuiscono a costruire l'immagine di un corpo vivo e pulsante. "Etching, from the first edition, third issue, of ""Le Antichità Romane. The first edition of this work, in four volumes, was published in Rome in 1756 at the printing-works of Angelo Rotili at the Massimo alle Colonne Palace, by Bouchard and Gravier, book-dealers and tradesmen located in Rome near the church of St. Marcel at the Via del Corso. This collection included a portrait of Piranesi, engraved by Felice Porziani, and a dedication to James Caulfield, count of Charlemont. This dedication was later abolished in the aftermath of a quarrel, described by Piranesi in his Lettere di Giustificazione [Letters of Justification] (1757), which also gave rise to three different versions of this first original edition (May 1756). These different versions are distinguishable from the title-page of the first volume, which initially was dedicated to the Irish aristocrat, then exhibited a cancelled dedication and coat of arms and, finally, bore a Latin motto written by the artist ""Aevo Suo Posteri set Utilitari Publicae"". Henry Focillon, in his 1918 treatise, presumed that Piranesi prepared and engraved the plates for this collection between 1750 and 1756, although some architectural features could have a few of them dating back to 1746. Actually, the oldest plates included in this collection probably date back even further, as suggested by the extraordinary complexity of this work, due to a prolonged phase of preparation and research, together with the stylistic alterations which can be observed by comparing the different plates. The magnificence of Piranesi's Antichità Romane, however, is not only in the artist's large graphic output. Indeed, this work is of primary importance from the standpoint of methodological innovation within the framework of contemporary archaeology, with the utilisation of texts which are of essential importance for the comprehension of the author's ideas and of the innovations implied in Piranesi's methodology. It can be asserted, as correctly emphasised by Focillon, that the Venetian architect founded modern archaeology. However, this new-fashioned approach implied an important disassociation and a significant deviation from the convictions and the official and academic culture of the time, which was of Anglo-Saxon derivation. This gave rise to a serious controversy, whose target was Piranesi, and to an adverse anecdotal literature concerning his person, the objective being the re-establishment of the endangered authority of the culture it was threatening. The main motivation behind the Antichità Romane was the documentation and preservation, utilising illustrations, of a heritage of ancient monuments which was being ravaged on a daily basis. This approach was incompatible with the one held by amateurs and antiquarians who only took pleasure from aesthetic contemplation and would not refrain from occasionally removing rather imposing parts from ancient relics for their private collections or, more simply, as souvenirs. The main new feature in his procedure was to unify into a single space the acts of excavating, surveying, structural inquiries and measurement together with the analysis of literary sources, the latter of which he examined for himself. This step of unification is characterised by the study of topography which, together with surveying techniques, the knowledge of antique procedures and materials, excavations and on-site inspections, gave rise to archaeology, in other words to the study of ancient history. Therefore, the four volumes comprised in this collection are the central nucleus, the fulcrum around which all of Piranesi's activity revolved, constituting the accomplishment and focal point of a method of inquiry and comprehension of the ancient city of Rome and, at the same time, the starting point for analogous and complementary works, which can be considered as additional proofs of his interpretation. Consequently, the Antichità can be regarded as an attempt to furnish a unified account of the city from its foundation up to the times of the last emperors, identifying monuments, areas and spaces, set side by side with prosaic and common aspects of the city, such as bridges and streets, which help to bestow it with an animated and vibrating atmosphere." 265 410

Copiare le braccia di Luigi XV colpito sui piatti, e la figura ripetuto sul retro, un simbolo che certifica l'origine della Biblioteca Reale di Versailles. Luigi XV aveva una grande biblioteca che è stata particolarmente ampliata non appena il principe sono stati portati a Versailles. 17000 volumi aderito alla Biblioteca Nazionale per la rivoluzione. Leganti pieno screziato vitello marrone vintage. Indietro con i nervi decorato Luigi XV di figura ripetuta 4 volte con gigli angolari. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] édition originale, rare, de ces deux volumes parus à deux années d'intervalle et dont la suite ne verra jamais le jour. Un frontispice et un grand tableau dépliant généalogique. Exemplaire aux armes de Louis XV frappées sur les plats, et au chiffre répété sur le dos, symbole qui atteste de la provenance de la bibliothèque royale à Versailles. Louis XV possédait une très vaste bibliothèque qui fut notamment agrandie lorsque les Princes furent élevés à Versailles. Dix-sept mille volumes rejoignirent la Bibliothèque nationale à la Révolution. Reliures en plein veau brun marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné du chiffre de Louis XV répété quatre fois avec des fleurs de lys angulaires. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Plats aux armes. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Coiffes restaurées. Plusieurs fentes le long du mors supérieur du tome I et du tome II. Coins et certains endroits des coupes restaurés. Manque le coin droit de la première page de garde. Trace de mouillure très pâle en marge et débordant sur le texte de la page 217 à la fin ; de la page viiij à xxxviij en marge ; idem sur les feuillets de garde de la fin du tome II. Malgré les défauts annoncés, rare exemplaire aux armes et au chiffre de Louis XV. L'ouvrage contient une longue introduction qui précise le projet du Chevalier d'Arcq en tant qu'historien. Sa méthode critique d'examen des textes est scrupuleuse, il rejette ce qui n'est pas prouvé et se range en l'annonçant aux hypothèses les plus sûres. Cette méthode et son travail seront loués par Le Journal des scavants qui fit le compte-rendu du premier livre en 1756 puis du second en 1758, avec de nombreux éloges, notamment sur le style élégant de l'auteur et sur sa façon d'installer un récit aux vives couleurs à partir de faits abrupts. Au-delà de l'histoire et de la géographie, l'auteur cherche l'aspect essentiellement militaire et montre comment les guerres, entre victoires et défaites, ont façonné la géographie des peuples, et précipité la fin et la naissance de royaumes. Le tome I traite de la Grande et de la Petite Arménie (Cappadoce, etc.), le second des royaumes autour du Pont (Phrygie, Paphlagonie, Héraclée, Pergame...). Bien que l'ouvrage traite d'une rare histoire ancienne et que sa lecture soit passionnante, le livre ne rencontra pas le succès, et le projet éditorial ne fut pas mené à son terme.

Nach seiner Ausbildung bei Christian Ferdinand Hartmann (1774-1842) in Dresden, ging Lindau bereits 1821 nach Rom, wo er Mitbegründer der Ponte Molle Gesellschaft, des späteren römischen Kunstvereins war. Er war als Genre- und Landschaftsmaler tätig.

        Friendship album of Conrad Friedrich Daumiller (Daumüller) from Nuremberg.

      Nuremberg, Altdorf, Jena and other places, 1753-1756. - Oblong 8vo. Title page, 9 pp. of index, and 290 entires on a total of 155 ff. Contemporary red-dyed vellum, covers and spine elaborately gilt. A southern German student's curious and substantial friendship album, containing numerous entries and poems in German, Latin, and French, many with salacious or erotic content: "Ein Buch, ein Freund, ein Glas, ein wol gebiltes Weib / Sind der Galanten Welt vergnügter Zeitvertreib." - "Vivent les filles de quatre etages, / Jeunes, Belles, Riches, et Sages". - "Fällt un-gesundes Wetter ein, / So lachen die Doctores. / In Jena sollen Jungfern sein? / O tempora o mores!" - "In Jena giebts keine Jungfer mehr, / Es sey denn eine Fremde." - "Der Priester Fluch, / Der Juristen Buch / Und das Ding unter dem Schürztuch: / Diese drey Geschirr / Machen die ganze Welt irr". - "Ein Mädgen Zehn Tausend reich, / An Thalern, nicht an Flöhen; / Soll diese Viertelstunde gleich / Mit mir zu Bette gehen." - "Ein Mädgen und ein Orgelwerk, / So fern ich dieses recht bemerck, / Vergleichen sich in Vielem: / Denn Beide muß man mit Bedacht, / Sowohl bei Tag als wie bei Nacht, / befingern und bespielen." Among such risqué contributions are the usual pious sayings, as well as quotations from the classics and by contemporary poets such as Gellert and Lessing. - Conrad Friedrich Daumiller (Daumüller) hailed from Nuremberg, studied theology in Altdorf and Jena, and died in 1761, still a young man, as a candidate for a preacher's office at the Carmelites' monastery in Nuremberg. Another friendship album of Daumiller's is known in the Anna Amalia library in Weimar, covering a similar period of time but comprising no more than 28 entries (Stb 318; acquired from a Nuremberg auction in 1811; cf. K. Goldmann, Nürnberger und Altdorfer Stammbücher aus vier Jahrhunderten, Nuremberg 1981, no. 376). - A few leaves have been removed, apparently by a (near) contemporary owner. Well preserved; binding somewhat faded; gilt decoration oxydized; slight defect to lower spine-end. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A New and Accurate Description of the Present Great Roads and the Principal Cross Roads of England and Wales, Commencing at London and continuing to the farthest Parts of the Kingdom...

      London, England: R. & J. Dodsley, 1756. First [and only?] edition. In contemporary [?] or very early full leather binding of brown calf. Boards present but completely and cleanly detached. The binding much rubbed and dessicated, especially along the spine. The hubbed spine bearing, in blind-stamp, "Roads of England." Also, at the spine tail, in much-rubbed gilt, the date 1756. The firmly bound text block retains great integrity. 7 x 4.5 inches. On rag content, laid paper. With title page, 6 unnumbered pages, 168 and lxiv numbered pages. Title page states, Price Bound Four Shillings. With a handsome tail-piece engraving at p. 161 and at p. xl. Tipped in to the FEP opposite page lxiv is a large fold-out B&W map with decorative cartouche, Kitchin's most Accurate Map of the Roads of England and Wales: with the Distances by the Mile-Stones, and other most exact Admensurations between Town & Town. Map measures 14.5 x 14.25 inches (37 x 36 cm). The map in remarkable condition; just a hint of age-toning. Book's pastedowns and opposite FEPs with glue off-settings. Front pastedown with the handsome armorial/pictorial bookplate of R.P.L. Booker. A blank front FEP with the inscription, likely in his own hand, "R. P. Lee Booker, Eton" in very small neat ink writing. Preliminaries lightly to moderately age toned. Else a rather clean copy. Downgraded to Good Plus chiefly on account of the poor state of the binding. Deemed worthy of custom rebinding or restoration. This is a study of the then-present principal roads of England and Wales, with detailed descriptions of way-stations, landmarks, distances, &c. Includes a section about the itinerary of Antoninus and Roman stations in England. Perhaps the most remarkable and significant feature of the book is the fold-out map, a map that seldom survives in extant copies of the book. A rare book in any condition. R. P. Lee Booker [died 1922?] was educated at Winchester and New College, Oxford, where he gained a first class in Mods. and a second class in Lit. Hum. in 1887. No later than 1888 he was appointed to the faculty at Eton College, Windsor, eventually serving as a House Master. Booker apparently served in WWI. By 1920 Booker had left Eton in hopes that he would find suitable employment elsewhere, though he made some critical remarks about the education system. He commented on the difficulty of getting his work printed. Booker was exceptionally interested in English antiquity, archaeology and history. He was a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries [FSA]. Specific interests apparently included: Prehistoric monuments and earthworks; Roman monuments and Roman earthworks; English ecclesiastical monuments; English secular monuments. In that regard, and commencing around 1908, he was active in contributing extensively to an inventory of the ancient and historical monuments and constructions connected with or illustrative of the contemporary culture, civilization and conditions of life of the people in England from the earliest times to the year 1700.. Presumed First Edition. Disbound. Good Plus. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Association Copy.

        A. Cornelius Celsus Of Medicine

      1756. CELSUS, Aulus Cornelius. (GREIVE, James). A. Cornelius Celsus Of Medicine. London: Printed for D. Wilson and T. Durham, 1756. Octavo, full contemporary calf gilt rebacked with original spine laid down, raised bands, original red morocco spine label. $8000.Scarce first edition in English, Greive's ""fine and scholarly"" translation (DNB) of ""the greatest medical treatise from ancient Rome.""""Roman literature, otherwise so barren of good medical authorities, can boast of possessing in Celsus one who, for elegance, terseness, learning, good sense and practical information, stands unrivaled"" (Peck, 308). Celsus' De Medicina ""is the oldest medical document after the Hippocratic writings. Written about AD 30, it remains the greatest medical treatise from ancient Rome, and the first Western history of medicine;"" its editio princeps, printed in Florence in 1478, ""was one of the first medical books to be printed"" (Garrison & Morton 20). Celsus' work is notable for containing important, early Western accounts of dentistry (including treatments of toothaches and fractured jaws) and surgery (including the first accounts of the use of ligature and early descriptions of plastic surgery). A physician and lecturer in chemistry, Grieve ""omitted no pains in examining the various editions of his original, nor in consulting his best annotators"" in preparing this first edition in English: ""Whoever has sufficient leisure and disposition for an attentive perusal of this work must perceive it has cost the Translator much time, care, and study… Dr. Grieve has shown himself a gentleman of literature and application"" (Brueggemann, 641). Extra-illustrated with engraved plate depicting the Ambe of Hippocrates preceding leaf A2. Garrison & Morton 6375. Blake, 82. Lowndes, 399. Bookplate. Engraved title page from a 1687 edition of De Medicina published in Amsterdam by Joannem Wolters affixed to front pastedown. With portion of a line engraving (measuring 3 by 6 inches) regarding 17th-century cancer patients affixed to rear pastedown. The Wellcome Library holds another, larger fragment of the same broadside, and believes it to be an advertisement for ""the services of an English travelling healer, possibly Sir William Read (d. 1715)… Read was oculist to Queen Anne, traveled around England treating people for cataract, cancer and other diseases, flaunted his services to charity and received a knighthood for his charitable services"" (Wellcome Library).Scattered light foxing. Title page with excised strip renewed, including the word ""OF"" from the title. Binding expertly restored. A most desirable copy in contemporary binding. Scarce.

        Le Christianisme dà voilà , ou Examen des Principes et des Effets de la Religion Chretienne

      [Leclerc, 1766], London [Nancy] 1756 - THE FIRST PUBLISHED ATHEIST DENUNCIATION OF THE CHURCH: A FOUNDATION WORK IN THE ATHEIST CANON. "LE LIVRE LE PLUS HARDI ET LE PLUS TERRIBLE QUI AIT JAMAIS PARU DANS AUCUN LIEU DU MONDE" â€" GRIMM. Octavo (190 x 120mm.) pp. [2], ii, xxviii, 295, [1]. a*2, a-b8, A-S8, T2. Woodcut ornament on title, typographical ornaments. In contemporary cats-paw calf, spine richly gilt in gilt ruled compartments, large sunflower tools gilt at centres, green morocco label gilt, edges with gilt dentelle roll, blue marbled endpapers, all edges marbled blue. A fine copy, fresh, crisp and clean. First edition, very rare and a fine copy, of Holbach's first work, the first published atheist denunciation of Christianity, printed in a very small print run, with a false date and imprint, in the guise of a work by Holbach's friend Boulanger, who had died a few years previously. "Paul Henri Thiery, Baron d'Holbach (1723-1789), was the centre of the radical wing of the Philosophes. He was friend, host, and patron to a wide circle that included Diderot, D'Alembert, Helvetius, and Hume. Holbach wrote, translated, edited, and issued a stream of books and pamphlets, often under other names, that has made him the despair of bibliographers but has connected his name, by innuendo, gossip, and association, with most of what was written in defence of atheistic materialism in late eighteenth-century France" (Richardson, p. i). Holbach realised that the publication of his incendiary text would need to be treated with the utmost caution. He had carried out the posthumous publishing of two works by his good friend Boulanger, L'Origine du Despotisme Oriental in 1761 and L'Antiquità Devoilà in 1765. He then took advantage of the cover given by these works to publish his own, much more explosive work, concealed behind the name of Boulanger, using a false date, and with a title that imitated one of Boulanger's. "M. Barbier has published detailed information given him by Naigeon to the effect that Holbach entrusted the manuscript to M. De Saint-Lambert, who had it printed by Leclerc at Nancy . . . Most copies that got to Paris at that time were bought by several officers of the King's regiment then in garrison at Nancy, among them M. De Villevielle, a friend of Voltaire and Condorcet. Damilaville (one of Holbach's chief collaborators) did not sell a single copy and even had a great deal of trouble to get one for Holbach who waited for it a long time" (Cushing p. 46). The most detailed bibliography to date, by J. Vercruysse, entirely concurs with Barbier's account of the printing of the few copies of the first edition at Nancy, but corrects the date of printing to probably 1766, as correspondence about the work, particularly from Voltaire, Diderot and Grimm commenced from that year. The watermarks also date the paper to 1762-3. We now know, through the testimony of Naigeon, Holbach's chief collaborator, that Holbach then used this clandestine form of printing to publish, with the same collaborators, a whole series of atheist texts, an extremely dangerous occupation. "Indeed, Diderot feared for his friends who produced such atheistic works, writing in 1768, 'It's raining bombs on the house of the Lord. I go in fear and trembling lest one of these terrible bombers gets into difficulties.' He certainly had in mind his friend d'Holbach" (Holohan. pp. xl). The initial diffusion of the work was slow as it was produced in a very small print run, and was actively sought after by the police. Both Voltaire and Diderot wrote to friends advising extreme caution because of the danger of owning the work. Voltaire noted that it had created "une sensation prodigieuse et merità e," describing it as a bomb thrown against the ancient edifice of the church. Diderot wrote that the work was being sold for as much as four gold 'Louis' and that anyone caught selling a copy was severely punish . . .

        Principes mathématiques de la philosophie naturelle.

      Paris, Desaint & Saillant, Lambert, 1756. ____ Première édition française et rarissime PREMIER TIRAGE. Les pages de titre sont datées de 1756, on n'en connaît qu'une douzaine d'exemplaires. D'après Cohen, ces exemplaires seraient une édition préliminaire distribuée en 1756. Mais pour Chambat et Varry, il est possible qu'une partie de l'ouvrage ait été imprimée entre 1746 et 1747 et que les feuillets aient été conservés jusque vers 1756, date à laquelle avait été prévue la distribution. Cette sortie a ensuite été retardée à 1759 par la perte de planches et le travail de Clairaut, ou par d'autres raisons inconnues. Les deux tomes sont bien à la date de 1756. La préface de Cotes est présente. L' "Avertissement" en deuxième état. (Les bandeaux sont différents et le texte a été recomposé, avec quelques modifications). Emilie du Châtelet, amie intime de Voltaire, a par cette traduction annotée des "Principia" de Newton largement contribué à la diffusion des idées newtoniennes en France. "On trouvera souvent Newton plus intelligible dans cette traduction que dans l'original & même que dans la traduction anglaise." (Avertissement). Cohen, The French translation of Isaac Newton's Philosophiae..., Archives internationales des sciences 21, 1968. Frédéric Chambat & Dominique Varry, Faut-il faire une description bibliographique des Principes mathématiques ?, Centre international d'étude du xviiie siècle. Très bel exemplaire. ***** First and sole French translation of Newton's "Principia". FIRST ISSUE. One of the very rare copies with both titles dated 1756, about 12 copies are known with this title page. This 1756 edition was presumably issued in a very small number of copies and then quickly withdrawn on account of its imperfections. The Cotes preface is present. Second state of the "Avertissement". "Known throughout intellectual Europe as Emilie, the name popularized by Voltaire, Mme du Châtelet - beyond the influence she had for some fifteen years on the orientation of Voltaire's works and on his public activity - contributed to the vitality of French scientific life to the parallel diffusion of Newtonianism and Leibnizian epistemology. Her affairs entertained the faishionable world of her period, yet her last moments revealed the sincerity of her scientific vocation. Although she limited her efforts to commentary and synthesis, her work contributed to the great progress made by Newtonian science in the middle of the eighteenth century". DSB 3, 215- 217. 2 volumes in-4. [248 x 192 mm] Collation : (4), XXXIX, (5), 437 pp., 9 planches. / (4), IV, 180, 297, (2) pp., 5 planches. Veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges.

        Histoire générale des guerres. Tome premier contenant l'histoire de la Grande Arménie [.] Tome second, contenant l'histoire des peuples de la Basse Asie

      Imprimerie royale 1756 - - Imprimerie royale, A Paris 1756 - 1758, In-4 (20x26cm), (6) vij-xij clxxvj, 372pp. et viij, 614pp., 2 volumes reliés. - Edition originale, rare, de ces deux volumes parus à deux années d'intervalle et dont la suite ne verra jamais le jour. Un frontispice et un grand tableau dépliant généalogique. Exemplaire aux armes de Louis XV frappées sur les plats, et au chiffre répété sur le dos, symbole qui atteste de la provenance de la bibliothèque royale à Versailles. Louis XV possédait une très large bibliothèque qui fut particulièrement agrandie dès que les Prince furent élevés à Versailles. 17000 volumes rejoignirent la bibliothèque Nationale à la Révolution. Reliures en plein veau brun marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné du chiffre de Louis XV répété 4 fois avec des fleurs de lys angulaires. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Plats aux armes. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Coiffes restaurées. Plusieurs fentes le long du mors supérieur du tome I, 2 le long du tome II. Coins restaurés et certains endroits des bordures. Manque le coin droit de la première page de garde. Trace de mouillure très pâle en marge et débordant sur le texte de la p. 217 à la fin ; de la p; viiij, à xxxviij en marge ; idem sur les feuillets de garde in fine du tome II. Malgré les défauts annoncés, rare exemplaire aux armes et au chiffre de Louis XV. L'ouvrage contient une longue introduction qui précise le projet du chevalier d'Arcq en tant qu'historien. Sa méthode critique d'examen des textes est scrupuleuse, il rejette ce qui n'est pas prouvé et se range en l'annonçant aux hypothèses les plus sûrs. Cette méthode et son travail seront loués par Le journal des scavants qui fit le compte rendu du premier livre en 1756 puis du second en 1758, avec de nombreux éloges, notamment sur le style élégant de l'auteur, sur sa façon d'installer un récit aux vives couleurs à partir de faits abrupts. Au delà de l'histoire et de la géographie, l'auteur cherche l'aspect essentiellement militaire et montre comment les guerres, entre victoires ou défaites ont façonné la géographie des peuples, et précipité la fin et la naissance de royaumes. Le tome I traite de la Grande et de la petite Arménie (Cappadoce, etc), le second des royaumes autour du Pont (phrygie, Paphlagonie, Heraclée, Pergame.). Bien que l'ouvrage traite d'une rare histoire ancienne et que sa lecture soit passionnante, le livre ne rencontra pas le succès, et le projet éditorial fut stoppé. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition, rare, these two volumes published two years apart and whose result will never see the day.

Shebbeare returns to defeat England on the bad policy and general presence in Canada, the intervention of the American militia and Washington.
