        The doctrine of fluxions : not only explaining the elements thereof, but also its application and use in the several parts of mathematics and natural philosophy.

      J. Bettenham: and sold by W. Innys 1757 - Second edition. xvi, 432, [2] p., 102 folding plates, errata. Fine modern 3/4 leather over marbled boards, raised bands, black leather spine label, gilt rule. Minor toning, marginal soiling, tanning to title page. Errata page trimmed close. Emerson's first book. Emerson was an important supporter of Newtonian mathematics. From the preface: "To say anything in praise of the Method of Fluxions, or of its dignity and rank among the mathematical sciences, would be as needless as to describe the excellency of bright sunshine above the twinkling light of stars; since anyone who is acquainted with the sciences will allow it to be a method of calculation incomparably superior to all other methods that ever were known or found out; and beyond which nothing further is to be hoped or expected. It lens its aid and assistance to all the other mathematical sciences, and that in their greatest wants and distresses: It opens and discovers to us the secrets and recesses of Nature, which have always before been locked up in obscurity and darkness. To this all the noble and valuable discoveries of the last and present age are entirely owing: And by this method Sir Isaac Newton, the worthy inventor, determined and settled the system of the whole visible World." A fun aside. Emerson turned down FRS, stating: "It is a damned hard thing that a man should burn so many farthing candles as I have done, and then have to pay so much a year for the honour of F.R.S. after his name. When a man becomes eminent, he has to pay quarterly for it. This is the way ingenuity is rewarded in England. Damn them and their F.R.S. too." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Life of Mr John Van, a Clergyman's Son, of Woody, in Hampshire. Being a series of many extraordinary events, and surprizing vicissitudes: in which are shewn, among a great number of singular and merry occurrences, his entrance into the Army as a trooper; his bravery against the rebels; his marriage with an heiress of eight hundred pounds a year, at St Ive's in Huntingdonshire; his conduct in high life; his favours from fortune, and reduction to poverty. Written by his friend and acquaintance, G.S. Green. 2 vols.

      Printed for Francis Noble and John Noble. [1757?] - viii, 195, [1]pp ad. leaf; vii, (i) ad., 170pp, ad. leaf; 8vo. A near fine copy bound in contemp. calf, gilt ruled borders, raised & gilt banded spines, orig. red gilt labels; small expert repairs to heads of spines. Rare, ESTC T57440 records BL and Southampton in UK, and 5 copies in America (Beinecke, UCLA, Boston, Oberlin, Pennsylvania). Raven 411 (who dates this as 1757, though other sources suggest 1745-1750). Very little is known about George Smith Green, died 1762, who in two of his other works, The Parson's Parlour [1756], and The Images of the Antients [1758], describes himself as a 'tradesman of Oxford' He published 3 poems, 2 plays, and this, by far his most substantial, and possibly partially autobiographical, work. It describes a young tradesman, a cheesemonger, who 'as he mightily loved plays . engaged with a Company of young Gentlemen, that used to perform once a month for the entertainment of their friends .' (and) 'meeting with the Books of Ben the Bricklayer (Ben Jonson), he found that Kings and Queens, and some other Folks, as good as Cheesmongers, had done the same a hundred years before' It is a lively romp through life, and with its liberal use of dashes, italics, and false names (Mrs and Miss Beastly, Mr Bigbelly, Mrs Strong, Counsellor Somebody, Mrs Swallow, Dr Bentivoglia, a critic of Ale), brings to mind the work of Sterne, whose Tristram Shandy first started to appear two years later in 1759. In fact he appears to be trying to set a different style for his writing, and in chapter VI 'the deviations of authors' states 'If I have not been out of the way already, I beg leave to be so in the next chapter, though not in the manner of other modern biographies, who pretend to write the history of one man or one woman; and they give you a pack of stories of twenty different people, that have nothing to do with the main design . but I shall stick to my text, and only wander in my mode, to avoid those disagreeable choruses, said I, and said they, &c &c that take up a quarter of a story'.

Origineel Leer met ribben, rijkelijk met goud bestempeld en met goud op snede, gebonden door de Tweede Stadhouderlijke Binderij in Den Haag, 8° (De onder- en bovenkant van de rug zijn iets sleets, lichte leesvouw in de rug. Het werk is gebonden met gedecoreerde schutbladen. Fraai exemplaar van de zeldzame eerste uitgave van dit historische en geografische leerboek door Louis François Krayenhoff, ca. 1724-na 1773. In het werk wordt eerst het gebruik van de globe uitgelegd en vervolgens wordt een beschrijving van de geschiedenis en gebruiken van verschillende landen gegeven. In het Nieuw Nederlands Biografisch Woordenboek wordt het werk aangeduid als: 'een hoogst merkwaardig boek, scherp in zijn aanvallen op de roomsch katholieke kerk, maar vooral merkwaardig om de karakterschetsen van de verschillende volken'. Het geheel is ingebonden door de Tweede Stadhouderlijke Binderij in een zeer fraaie stempelband. De Tweede Stadhouderlijke Binderij was actief geduurende de jaren 1752-1782 in de stad Den Haag. De binderij heeft zijn naam te danken aan het feit dat zij veel banden inbonden voor de stadhouderlijke familie, voor dit doeleinde bezaten zij enkele stempels die exclusief hier voor werden gebruikt, waaronder de sinaasappelbomen op deze set. Kenmerkend voor de band is het rijkelijk met goud bestempelde patroon, de stempels zijn te herleiden naar de binderij met behulp van het standaard werk van Storm van Leeuwen.)

        Lettere di giustificazione scritte a Milord Charlemont e a' di lui agenti di Roma dal signor Piranesi, socio della Real Società degli Antiquari di Londra intorno la dedica della sua opera Delle antichità rom. fatta allo stesso signor ed ultimamente soppressa

      Rome: Giambattista Piranesi, 1757 Small folio (251x174 mm). Etched dedication leaf [Wilton-Ely 739, Ficacci 324] (an elaborate wreath with the inner space left blank for the dedication of the copy, here without recipient's name), etched title-page [W.-E. 738, F. 323, state two of two early states], XXVIII pp. and VIII full-page etched plates (one double-page and folding) [W.-E. 745-752, F. 327-331], the first four being reproductions on a smaller scale of the frontispieces to the four volumes of the Antichità Romane, the last four being inscriptions. With also 4 etched head-pieces [W.-E. 740-743, F. 324-326] above the preface and each of the three letters, and one tail-piece [W.-E. 744, F. 326] at end of the third letter, by and after Piranesi. The etchings are printed on a thicker paper than the text. Contemporary boards, marbles edges. A few small stains in the margin of the dedication leaf and the title-page, otherwise a nice copy.RARE FIRST EDITION of this Piranesi's polemical work against his patron Lord Charlemont, in which Piranesi expresses his own view on the relationship between artist and patron. "This edition is extremely rare... The plates indicated as table I to IV were subsequently reused in the post 1761 edition of the Opere varie" (Ficacci, p. 320).The Irish nobleman and politician James Caulfield, first Earl of Charlemont (1728-1799), was a patron of the arts, chairman of the committee of the Dilettanti Club and a friend of Burke, Johnson, Reynolds, Goldsmith and Hogarth. Educated privately, he went on the Grand Tour at the age of eighteen in 1746, travelling to Turin, Rome, the Greek Islands, Constantinople, the Levant, and Egypt, before returning to Ireland in 1754.Piranesi's Camera sepolcrali degli antichi romani le quali esistono dentro e fuori di Roma (ca 1750) was published as a prospectus to find a patron. Charlemont responded and Piranesi engraved a large number of additional plates to the work, finally publishing in 1756 what had become a four-volume set under the title Le Antichità romane. Charlemont had promised to subvention the significant financial outlay involved in the publication but, after his return to Ireland and despite repeated requests from Piranesi, he provided only a sum which Piranesi dismissed as offensively small. As a response, Piranesi removed then the dedications to Charlemont present in the first states of the title-pages to the work and the following year published the Lettere di giustificazione, which includes two of the artist's letters addressed to Charlemont together with a third letter to Father Peter Grant, who had attempted to intervene in the dispute and mediate between the two parties.The textual vindication of Piranesi's position is complemented by the series of eight plates which demonstrate the disassociation of Charlemont's patronage from the work in a methodical manner; they illustrate the original title-pages with their dedications to Charlemont, two versions of Charlemont's text for the dedication leaf, the first title with the dedicatory text erased, and, finally, the second state of the title-page with the revised dedication.As Wilton-Ely states, "the intellectual and social changes of the late 18th century affected the traditional relationship between patron and artist, and the Lettere are symptomatic of issues greater than a mere personal quarrel. Themes which transcend the tedious details of the affair include the nobility of artistic reputation and the imperishable nature of art -- the latter neatly symbolized by the serpent of Eternity in the [dedication leaf]. For Piranesi, deeply involved in the study of Roman civilization, the creative act of recording the achievement for posterity conferred on him a dignity worthy of his patron's respect" (p. 802).The title-page of the Lettere exists in two early states: with a quotation from Ennius and with a quotation from Pliny (as here). Wilton-Ely states that the first state was for copies "circulated to influential people of rank while the second one was intended for Piranesi's artist friends and collaborators, especially among the British colony at Rome" (p. 803). In a copy of the Lettere di giustificazione recently sold at auction, on the verso of plate 6, can be found a manuscript list of influential people, to whom the book was probably distributed. Among them, Andrea Rossi, Venetian etcher and engraver; Francisco Preciado de la Vega, Spanish-born painter and bookseller; Filippo Della Valle, Roman sculptor; Bartolomeo Cavaceppi, Roman sculptor and dealer in antiques; Domenico Gregorini, Roman architect; Anton Raphael Mengs, German painter active in Rome; John Russell, English painter; Sir Horace Mann; David Murray, second Earl of Mansfield; Sir William Hamilton, archaeologist and collector; Sir Brook William Bridges, a member of Sir Horace Mann's circle; and many others.Cicognara, 3830; Hind, p. 84 ("the volume was suppressed soon after publication, which accounts for its extreme rarity"); J.

        Opera. Ex antiquis monimentis illustrata. Cura, studio & sumtibus Henrici Justice, Armigeri, Rufforthii Toparchae.

      [Henry Justice], [The Hague] 1757 - FIRST EDITION, 5 vols., 8vo, pp. [xvi], 14, 138 + frontispiece and 9 plates; [x], 99, [1], 100-129 + frontispiece and 6 plates (one a folding map); [ii], 142 + frontispiece and 5 plates; [ii], 154 + frontispiece and 5 plates; [ii], 3, [1], 2, [1], 82, [1], 83-87, [1]. Numerous head- and tail-pieces within the pagination. Largely untrimmed in somewhat later half red roan, red paper boards, spines divided by double gilt rules, gilt-lettered direct in second and fourth compartments. A number of the tissue-guards (in place for both plates and head- and tail-pieces) rather foxed and this also affecting the adjacent leaves, some scattered spotting elsewhere. A little rubbed, corners a touch worn, several hinges neatly relined and a few flyleaves renewed (vol. 3 rear flyleaf absent). The first Justice edition of Virgil, entirely engraved throughout in imitation of Pine's Horace and published at the editor's great expense. Henry Justice (c.1696-1763), a barrister from York and compulsive book collector, was sentenced to transportation to America in 1736 for stealing books from Trinity College Library; his wife Elizabeth published a thinly disguised novel of their marriage and its breakdown over his refusal to spend money on the household instead of books (Amelia, 1751). Justice reappears in the historical record two decades after his trial, in the Netherlands, working on this edition of Virgil. The only place and date in it (The Hague, 1765) are in the dedication to Catherine the Great, which follows the title-page in vol. 5. In fact publication began in 1757 and was ongoing in 1763, when Justice died, with three volumes finished by that time; the fourth was ready shortly afterward and the fifth by 1765, both under the care of Henry's son William. The plates were reimpressed some time later on one side of the sheets only, by J.L. de Boubers in Brussels, with his name added at the foot of the title-page. There is no date in this edition either, but de Boubers began as a type-founder in the late 1760s and operated until his death in 1804, with his widow carrying on the business for another 17 years. The reimpression made the book a more luxurious production, and the BL catalogue suggests that it was limited to 80 copies only, but this first is now rather scarcer, especially on the market. COPAC locates copies of the first in only Manchester, BL, Oxford, and Cambridge - with an indeterminate 'large paper issue' in Glasgow - as compared to 8 copies of the reissue in 7 locations. The status of the large-paper issue is hard to pin down: Brunet mentions that it is rare in France because most of the copies were bought up by the dedicatee, Catherine the Great, to use as gifts. The Trinity College Cambridge catalogue entry describes the large paper issue as having horizontal chain lines, in contrast with the vertical ones in that copy. However, this example appears to be printed on wove paper, with no detectable chain lines at all, so perhaps the large-paper issue was de Bouber's work. Dibdin II 558. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Edinburgh: printed by C. Wright and Company for the author 1757 - 8vo., xii + 432 + (6)pp., folding plate, contemporary calf gilt with raised bands and a label. A fine, crisp, copy: signed by the author on verso of title authenticating this copy as genuine 'further to prevent pyrating'.> First collected edition. Perkins 1173. Rothamsted p.103. Higgs 1390 (but giving a grossly erroneous collation). Goldsmiths 9224. Williams II, p.41. Not in Kress. A valuable collection of over 60 essays, papers and letters, some of which had been previously published by Maxwell in his Select Transactions> (1743). It is evident that a good number of the papers were queries addressed to The Society of Improvers in the Knowledge of Agriculture in Scotland of which Maxwell was secretary. The papers touch on the whole range of subjects of interest to the agricultural community. In any event, a substantial part of this collection of papers were either original contributions by Maxwell or his answers to questions sent to the Society. By 1757 The Society itself was declining owing to the death of nearly all the founder members except Hope of Rankeilor, though it had at one time a membership of more than 300 'of the Flower of the Nation, whereof about fifty were Peers'. [Fussell. II, p.20]. Robert Maxwell (1695-1765) was an agricultural promoter 'who, during the first half of the century, perhaps did more than any other to introduce and encourage the practices of new methods'. [DNB]. He evidently had an unashamedly high opinion of himself. 'If farmers will read my papers with as much attention as I have wrote them, will be convinced of errors, will depart from them, and will practise the husbandry which I have directed, we must soon become rich, and may be happy'.

        ITER PALAESTINUM ELLER RESA TIL HELIGA LANDET... UTGIFVEN AF CARL LINNAEUS

      Stockholm: n.p.. Very Good. 1757. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good, in contemporary quarter sheep. Linnaeus sponsored Hasselquist's travels in the Holy Land, and published this book after the author's death. Soulsby 3577. In 1747, Frederic Hasselquist entered the study of his teacher Carolus Linnaeus to announce his decision to go to the Holy Land and explore its natural history. This decision was prompted by a lecture in which Linnaeus complained that the natural history of the Holy Land was almost as little know as that of the remote provinces of India. Hasselquist finally embarked on his journey in 1749; visiting parts of Asia Minor, Egypt, Cyprus and Palestine, making large natural history collections. Unfortunately, his health succumbed to the fatigues of travel, and he died near Smyrna on his way home. His collections did reach Stockholm, and five years after his death his notes were published by Linnaeus under the title Iter Palæstinum, Eller Resa til Heliga Landet, Förrättad Ifrån år 1749 til 1752, which was translated into French and German in 1762 and into English in 1766 (as Voyages and Travels in the Levant, in the Years 1749, 50, 51, 52).; .
