        A REVIEW OF THE MILITARY OPERATIONS IN NORTH AMERICA; FROM THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE FRENCH HOSTILITIES ON THE FRONTIERS OF VIRGINIA IN 1753, TO THE SURRENDER OF OSWEGO, ON THE 14th OF AUGUST, 1756.

      Dublin. 1757. - 276pp. 20th-century red morocco, gilt, a.e.g., by Riviere & Son. One corner lightly worn; bookplate on front pastedown. Internally clean. Near fine. In a red half morocco slipcase and cloth chemise. First Dublin edition of this important work, after the first London of the same year, which is among the prime authorities for the Lake George campaign of 1755. This Dublin edition is expanded slightly, including George Washington's journal of his 1754 expedition in Ohio. Largely a vindication of Major Gen. William Shirley's conduct during his service as commander-in-chief of the British forces in North America during the Seven Years' War, for which he was charged with neglect of duty, reviewing the progress of the war in Virginia and the northern colonies, including Washington's capitulation at Fort Necessity and Braddock's defeat at Monongahela. Shirley was replaced by Lord Loudon as commander-in- chief. The following year Loudon, placing the blame for the loss of Oswego squarely on Shirley's shoulders, dismissed him from military office and removed him from the governorship of Massachusetts. It has been suggested that New York historian William Smith may have had a hand in the preparation of this work. ESTC N12681. HOWES L401, "aa."

Prima edizione di questo importante trattato di stereometria applicata all'architettura, volto ad esporre i metodi per misurare e stimare le quantità e di costi dei materiali per i più diversi spazi e strutture, tra cui i più complessi esempi di volte e di cupole degli edifici del tempo. L'opera, per la sua chiarezza e semplicità, anche grazie alle belle tavole incise in rame, ebbe notevole successo e fu un testo di riferimento per diverse generazioni di ingegneri, rimanendo sempre attuale grazie anche alle ristampe di Perugia (1790) e di Firenze (1822). Numerosi i riferimenti ad architetti e teorici dell'architettura come Sangallo, Jousse, Blondel, Parent, La Hire e Varignon. L'opera contiene un'appendice "del modo di misurare le capacità delle Vasche, Legnaj, Fenili [sic], Grani, ec. Ed in fine alcune Memorie levate dalla Storia della Reale Accademia di Parigi, e tradotte dal Francese attinenti alla misura delle Volte, ad estinguere gl'incendj, misurare le Botti, ed altri simili aderenti alle Fabbriche". L'Alberti (Bologna, 1712-Perugia, 1768) fu ingegnere civile a Bagnacavallo, autore di numerosi scritti di ingegneria e matematica e ideatore di strumenti topografici, tra cui la dioptra monicometrica, precorritrice di strumenti di celerimensura ideati in seguito.

        Catalogue des Livres de feu M. Potier, Ancien Avocat au Parlement,

      dont la Vente se fera le Jeudi quatre ["quatre" is crossed-out & corrected to "3" in a contemporary hand] Février 1757 & jours suivans. 4 p.l., 156, [4] pp.; 8, [3] pp. Two parts in one vol. 8vo, attractive antique half-calf & speckled boards, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: Morel l'aîné, 1757. The Grolier Club and OCLC erroneously attribute the ownership of this catalogue to François Joachim Bernard Potier, duc de Gesvres (1692-1757). This is impossible as he was not a lawyer but a "noble d'epée" and died on 19 September 1757, seven months after this sale was held. Annie Charon, in the on-line "Esprit des livres," states that M. Potier was without doubt a member of the Potier family of magistrates and lawyers, many of whom had served the Parlement de Paris since the 15th century. We learn from the interesting two-page tribute in the preliminary leaves of the first part that Potier has devoted himself, in addition to his professional duties, to training young lawyers for the bar. His important collection of books on jurisprudence was available to everyone, both Frenchmen and foreigners. Indeed, the vast proportion of books described in the catalogue and supplement -- 2214 lots -- is devoted to legal topics. Fine copy. Priced throughout in a contemporary hand. ❧ Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions...1643-1830, 132-(lacking the schedule of sale for the first part and the Supplement). .

        Noticia certa de hum successo acontecido no Imperio da China, aonde se referem os tormentos, trabalhos, e martyrios que alli padessem os Catholicos, e os que passou o muito Reverendo Padre Fr. Joam de Santa Maria, religioso da veneravel Ordem de S. Doming

      Giving notice of the martyrdoms and torments suffered by Priests of the Dominican Order in China. 1757. Lisbon. In 8vo (192 mm x 136 mm). 7 pp. Unbound. Light toning and browning.Rare relation of the martyrdom and torments suffered by Joam de Santa Maria and Maricastro, both Priests of the Dominican Order. The newsletter narrates the persecutions of the Catholic missionaries working in China, their vanishing from some provinces and the pains undergone in fulfilling of their evangelizing; however, the author begins praising the land by telling the reader that China is the "largest, most fertile, must abundant, and richest country of Asia".We could trace one copy at the National Library of Portugal and three institutional copies in the U.S.

Amsterdam, Petrus Schenk [II] & son (vol. II: Petrus Schenk [III]), 1757-1774. Imperial folio (50 x 34 cm). With 2 title-pages in red and black, each with the same engraved allegorical device, a double-page engraved dedication plate and 41 double-page and 7 larger folding engraved illustration plates. Red half sheepskin, blue-grey paper sides (ca. 1800).

      Bierens de Haan [3818.5] & [4839.5] (vol. II only, with later ed. of vol. I); STCN (2 & 4 copies of the 2 volumes); not in Berlin Kat.; Roberts & Trent, Bibl. Mechanica. Second edition of both volumes of a remarkably detailed set of scale construction drawings (plans, sections, elevations, perspective views, etc., including many detail drawings of individual parts) of 18th-century Dutch waterworks, with the accompanying letterpress descriptions and notes. It includes locks, sluices, bridges, pumps, pile drivers, an ice-breaker, an elaborate water-bailing mill and more. Most of the plates measure about 45 x 54 cm, with the folding ones about 52 x 76 cm. At least most of the plates depict existing works, and the text occasionally gives some historical information. The drawings are so detailed and give such a clear picture of how the mechanisms functioned that one could use them to reconstruct the works shown. A fine copy, nearly untrimmed, with only some false folds in the half-title and an occasional minor defect in the paper. Plate 23 in volume 1 has no number, but it may have been trimmed off at the head. The inside front hinge has partly separated from the book-block, but the binding is otherwise good. A fine copy of a magnificent display of Dutch hydraulic engineering.
