To the south is part of New Brunswick, Maine and Quebec again with their many lakes and rivers.

In smaller format, he issued the Petit Atlas Maritime (1764), which contained 580 charts, as well as maps to illustrate l Abbe Prevost's Histoire Générale des Voyages (1746-1757). Bellin also produced a substantial number of important separately issued maps, particularly reflecting continuing discoveries and political events in the Americas. His maps and charts were finely engraved and produced, and set a high standard of accuracy.

        Memoirs of Wool, Woolen Manufacture, and Trade

      (Particularly in England), from the Earliest to the Present Times; with Occasional Notes, Dissertations and Reflections.. Second Edition, Revised and Enlarged, 2 volumes xxxi, 5, 432; 449, 1pp royal quarto, a fine copy in contemporary half, marbled boards, expertly rebacked with the original leather labels retained, spines with elaborate gilt roll tooling, London, the author, 1757-1756. Goldsmith 923; Kress 5576. This is the best edition of this classic work on the subject. It was first published in a far briefer form in two octavo volumes in 1747 as Chronicon Rusticum Commerciale; or Memoirs of Wool, and is a masterly source book for the whole subject of the wool trade - arguably the key trade of the period. Williams (II, p.123) thought it 'very valuable'; McCulloch (p.237) described it as 'one of the most carefully compiled and valuable works that has been published on the history of any branch of trade', whilst Palgrave (vol III, p.425) describes the books as 'a highly valuable work.. a most careful and detailed account of the incidents and references relating to the woollen and cloth trade from the earliest mention of wool until the middle of the 18th century.' The author selects and collects together extensive extracts on his subject from original works by virtually every authority writing on economics and trade. These writers include Huet, Wheeler, Diggs, Misselden, Malynes, Robinson, Fotrey, Mun, Child, Petty, Manly, Yarranton, Davenant, Tryon, Cary, Gee, Postlethwayt, &c., &c. To these pieces are added the various relevant statutes, historical and background notices. A copy of the shorter octavo edition of this work was in Adam Smith's library - see Bonar, Catalogue of Adam Smith's Library, p.175. Adam Smith quotes the work in his Wealth of Nations, describing the author as 'very accurate and intelligent' (vol II, p.150 Cannan's edition, 1930, also vol I, p.230).

        An english and swedish dictionary: wherein the generality of words and various significations are rendered into swedish and latin, forms of speech, proverbs and terms of art in husbandry and gardening especially, observed, above 2400 english words traced from their true original gothick, and the mistakes of Junius, Menagius and other etymologians remarked.

      Thereunto is added a large collection of terms of trade and navigation and an herbal or index of plants common to both nations. The second edition with large additions and amendments. Harg och Stenbro nära Nyköping, P. Momma, 1757. 4:o. (8),16,(634) s. Fint men ngt nött samtida stänkdekorerat skinnbd med upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerad rygg och ljusbrun titeletikett. Stänkta snitt. Något enstaka lätt fläckigt blad och bitvis med en liten fuktrand längst ut i yttermarginalen. Med gammal anteckning på försättsbladet: "tilhörer om jag mins rätt h: secr. Hummelhielm" och C. F. Hummelhjelms namnteckning. Bra ex.. Första upplagan av Serenius engelsk-svenska lexikon utkom i Hamburg 1734, denna den andra är tryckt "at Harg and Stenbro near Nykoping in Sweden" - boktryckaren Momma lät sätta upp tryckeriet nära Serenius bostad i Stenbro, då denne själv ville övervaka korrekturarbetet. Med hyllningar av A. O. Rhyzelius och E. Alstrin. Lexikonet avslutas med avdelningarna "A table of terms of trade and navigation" och "Herbale anglo svethico latinum". Serenius (1700-76) var legationspredikant och kyrkoherde i svenska församlingen i London och betydde mycket för Sveriges förbindelser med England. Bl.a. införde han under påverkan från engelska kyrkan konfirmationen i Sverige. Serenius "Dictionarium anglo-svethico-latinum" (1734) var vårt första engelska lexikon och hans insats för kunskapen om engelska i Sverige har av Ingar Bratt betecknats som "monumental". Serenius var även känd politiker och en av mösspartiets ledande män. Lena Rogström skriver i sin avhandling om Serenius ordböcker att denne i andraupplagan av engelsk-svenska lexikonet tillfogar "en förteckning över växter, något som heller inte är vanligt i svenska ordböcker. Kanske kan detta vara en eftergift åt Linnés vetenskapliga rön och ett sätt att befästa Sveriges ställning på detta område. Linné rönte ju också stor uppmärksanhet i England, så det kan också vara ett sätt att tillgodose de engelska användarnas intresse." I subskribentförteckningen återfinns namn som P. Osbeck och J. Ihre

        Reveries or Memoirs upon the Art of War

      London: J. Nourse, at the Lamb, 1757. 1st. Hard Cover. Good. First Edition in English. 4to (8 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches) full original calf, professionally rebacked, false spine bands, maroon leather spine label, gilt printing, pp. x, 195, (1) page advertisements for other books by the publisher, 40 copper plates on 34 pages. Good copy, top inch of title page trimmed without loss of text, some edge wear to binding, former owner's name inside front cover. Added some original Letters, upon various Military Subjects, wrote by the Count to the late King of Poland, and M. de Folard, which were never before made publick: Together with His Reflections upon the Propagation of the Human Species. Translated from the French. This is the first edition in English of a classic military work by one of the world's most famous soldiers. Observing that the art of war is a science with no certainties or absolutes, Saxe (1696-1750) divides his book into two parts, the first examining the raising, feeding, clothing, exercising, paying, encamping, and moving of an army and its various parts, and the second covering the sublime or strategic aspect of combat, including attack and defense in various terrains, how to interpret the signs of enemy plans, and so on. The last chapter contains the author's reflections on the propagation of the human species. overall a Very Good copy of this fairly important classic on 18th century warfare., Of noble birth, headstrong, and given to excess, Saxe served in the military from the age of 12 in various wars, including under Peter the Great against the Swedes. He gained international fame by his surprise capture of Prague in 1741 during the War of Austrian Succession, for which he was made Marshall of France. He was given independent command in the Netherlands, and his several successes there were due in large part to his strategy and leadership, and this despite being carried about, as dropsy made it impossible for him to sit on horseback. The translator here had a distinguished career as a soldier. Sir William Fawcett (1728-1804) enlisted as an ensign during the rebellion of 1745, resigned his commission to seek active duty in 1748, studied military tactics and discipline in Europe, and worked his way up through the ranks until in 1796 he was made full General and was considered the most important officer in the army. In all, Fawcett, whose various assignments included the hiring of mercenary troops to fight in the American.

Äldre bläcksignatur på titelbladet, daterad 1772. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Warmholtz 7476. Första upplagan av den flitige Samuel Loenboms första tryckta arbete. En dansk översättning utkom 1789-90. Från 1751 var Loenbom, tillsammans med Erik Sotberg, informator åt greve Gustaf Leonard Stenbocks båda söner. I arbetet ingick även arkivarbete i dennes ärvda arkiv - en viktig del av det nuvarande Ericsbergsarkivet. Det främsta resultatet av deras arbete där var denna biografi över grevens fader, Magnus Stenbock. Samuel Loenbom (1725-76) blev från 1762 amanuens hos rikshistoriografen, men längre kom han inte i karriären. Han var, vid sidan av Gjörwell, en av de flitigaste av 1700-talets samlare och utgivare av historiskt källmaterial, som han till stor del hämtade ur herrgårdsbibliotek och enskilda personers manuskript- och brevsamlingar, varav mycket nu är skingrat.

        The Works of... in eight volumes. Collated with the oldest copies, and Corrected: With Notes, Explanatory, and Critical: by Mr. Theobald.

      London: Printed for C. Hitch [et al], 1757.. Eight volumes, 12mo. Printed frontispiece and 36 plates - one per play. One gathering slightly proud in volume I with the fly title to A Midsummer Night's Dream lacking, some mostly marginal worming at the beginning and end of several volumes, marginal loss to two leaves - with only very slight loss of text in one instance, one other leaf with a closed tear, contemporary signatures to titles and the first fly title in each volume with one set crossed out. Contemporary dappled calf, gilt spines with orange labels, some very light wear to extremities, minor loss to foot of one spine otherwise a handsome set. Theobald's "Shakespeare Restored" appeared in 1726, correcting Pope's edition of the previous year. It provoked much controversy - Pope appropriated most of Theobald's work in his second edition and later attacked him in his "Dunciad". Theobald's own edition of Shakespeare was first published in 1733 and remains a valuable work - "It would not be too much to say that the text of Shakespeare owes more to Theobald than to any other editor. Many desperate corruptions were rectified by him, and in the union of learning, critical acumen, tact, and good sense he has perhaps no equal among Shakespearean commentators" (DNB). Jaggard p501. A second edition of Theobald appeared in 1740 with another issue in 1752 before this one. Jaggard notes no major differences between this set and the 1740 second edition except for the addition of Shakespeare's will to the first volume, which had been included in the 1752 edition for the first time.

        A Prospect on the River Manyfold, at Wetton-Mill [Pl. 3]

      London: Published by Smith, July 29, 1757. Engraving with beautiful hand- colour. Printed on watermarked laid paper. In good condition with the exception of some staining in the margins. Two creases along bottom corners. Label on verso of sheet. Image size: 15 x 20 7/8 inches. 15 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches. 15 3/4 x 22 inches. A stunning view of the River Manyfold, by Smith of Derby, one of the most celebrated English landscape painters. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a trend developed amongst English artists and printmakers, which sought to visually record the natural beauties of England and Wales. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, English printmakers began to publish topographical prints of the important sights in the British Isles. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside they were meant to encourage public recognition of the beauty and history of England. They were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those vicarious tourists who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. One of the earliest and most influential landscape artists to begin this trend was Thomas Smith who came to be known as "Smith of Derby". Smith traveled the north of England painting famous houses and beautiful views. He was one of the first artists to depict wild landscape scenes, which became immensely fashionable with the development of the "picturesque landscape" towards the end of the century. Smith's paintings not only captured the English countryside at the onset of the Industrial Revolution, but also recorded the activities of visiting tourists and local inhabitants. These works capture a period in England's history, which was forever changed by the wheels of progress. Before the mills and the factories came to dominate the landscape of northern England Smith depicted its wild beauty and breathtaking scenery.This lovely print comes from a suite of eight views of Derbyshire and Staffordshire, produced by Smith around 1743. The views were then engraved and offered for sale by subscription, along with letterpress explanations of the sites. This important suite represent the first appearance of precipes and cascades in English landscapes, and mark a pivotal point in the concept of the countryside as sublime. The set was republished twice, first by Smith in 1757 and later by Boydell in 1769. This print is from Smith's second edition. Wetton Mill in the distance was a river run mill for grinding corn. River Manyfold (now Manifold) appears well-named as it forms a large loop before the viewer. Wetton is in Staffordshire. Clayton The English Print 1688-1802 page 155-157, 299.

Image size: 15 1/8 x 20 3/4 inches. 15 1/2 x 21 5/8 inches. 15 5/8 x 21 3/4 inches.

        The Spectator, Volume Sixth (Signed by James Wilson)

      U.S. Constitution Signer?s Copy of an English Journalistic Classic Summary:  Boldly signed "James Wilson" in ink in blank portion of title. Tonson's 1757 complete edition of The Spectator was intended as a deluxe typographical production. Finely printed on heavy paper and embellished with vignettes by skilled engravers, it is a reflection of the enduring public regard for Addison and Steele's 555 daily papers (published from March 1711 to December 1712; 80 issues added in 1714). James Wilson.  Signed Book.  Joseph Addison and Richard Steele, The Spectator, Volume Sixth. London: Jacob and Richard Tonson, 1757.  Engraved vignette on titlepage.  Speckled sheep, covers gilt-ruled, spine gilt with red morocco gilt-lettered label. Quarter morocco gilt protective slipcase.# 21874     $2,000 Historical Background:  James Wilson (1742-1798) was born in Scotland and educated at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow, imbibing the principles of the Scottish Enlightenment. Unable to graduate due to his father?s death, Wilson emigrated to America, and became a tutor at the College of Philadelphia, and assistant to Pennsylvania lawyer John Dickinson. For many years, Wilson practiced law in Reading and Carlisle, and became a powerful force in Pennsylvania politics. In 1774, he published ?Considerations on the Nature and Extent of the Legislative Authority of the British Parliament, an influential revolutionary pamphlet. Wilson was twice elected to the Continental Congress, and served concurrently as a brigadier general in the state militia. Like other Pennsylvanians in Congress, including his mentor, Dickinson, Wilson was pressured by his constituents to forestall declaring independence. Wilson himself eventually changed his mind, voting for and signing the Declaration of Independence. As a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, Wilson sat on the Committee of Detail, which produced the first draft. He proposed the Three-Fifths Compromise, and was, next to James Madison, the most active participant in the Convention. Wilson was a major proponent for ratification in his home state, which became the second state to approve the new constitution in 1787. President Washington named him as one of the six original justices of the Supreme Court. Condition:Board edges a bit darkened, joints cracked.

        Le Decameron de Jean Bocacce

      Londres: [i.e. Paris, Prault], 1757. The most sought after edition. With five engraved title pages (one in each volume). Some slight rubbing to covers, very slight occasional browning and foxing throughout (not affecting plates). Octavo. Five volumes Profusely illustrated by Hubert Francois Gravelot, Cochin, Boucher and Eisen with full page plates and tail pieces, engraved by Aliamet, Baquoy, Flipart, Legrand, Lemire, Lempereur, and others. The full page engravings in vols. I, !! and IV bear the "paraphe" indicating proof impressions full ox-blood red morocco, spines with raised bands and extra gilt, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Volume III very skillfully rebound to match quite some time ago, most likely late 1800s (no trimming of pages) With the bookplate of noted book collector Mary MacMillin Norton & Provenance: sold at Hotel Drouot in 1908. The first volume also contains "Vie de Jean Bocace, poete Florentin" (Life of the Florentine poet Jean Bocaccio) by Philippe-Matthieu Villani.& & The Tales of the Decameron were originally published in 1351 or 1353. The story has stories within the story; seven young women and three young men flee the Black Plague in Florence and stay at a villa in Fiesole, they tell stories to each over a period of fourteen days, except for the days of work and rest, so ten stories each day for ten days. In the stories Bocaccio is considered to have given himself the voice of Dioneo, who can choose to talk about any topic in his story. The stories deal with lust and greed, the clergy's especially; love stories between members of different societal classes, the wealthy merchants dealings with noble personage, tricks that people play on each other and similar topics.& & The illustrator, Hubert-François Gravelot, was a French engraver (1699, Paris - 1773) who also did illustrations and was an occasional figurative painter. He trained in Paris under Francois Boucher and later departed for London around 1732. There he became friends with William Hogarth and both of them taught at the St, Martin's Lane Academy (a precursor to the Royal Academy). One of his students was Thomas Gainsborough.& & He illustrated Gay's "Fables", and was one of the first artists to illustrate Richardson's "Pamela" and Fielding's "Tom Jones." Perhaps his most well known work of illustration is the "Decameron." Although other artists provided illustrations for the Decameron Gravelot created 89 of the 111 plates, and all 97 of the tailpieces. Bocaccio's stories and Gravelot's temparement were well suited to each other; he also found his way to depict the society around him by transposing Bocaccio's characters to the France of his [Gravelot] day.& & The plates in these volumes are first proofs of the illustrations and each one bears the monogram stamp in ink on the verso & [Cohen-de Ricci 160-1; Ray 39-4.

        Elementa physiologicae corporis humani

      Marc Michael Bousquet Lausanne: Marc-Michael Bousquet, 1757. No Dust Jacket. First Comprehensive Textbook of Physiology Haller, Albrecht (1708-77). Elementa physiologiae corporis humani. 4to. Engraved portrait by P. F. Tardieu after E. J. Handmann & 6 plates.. Lausanne: Bousquet. . . , 1757-63 & Berne: Sumpt. Soc. Typogr., 1764-66. 8 vols. 240 x 187 mm. Calf, gilt spines, c. 1757-66 (some variation in mottling patterns, spine tools as might be expected). Bindings worn, rubbed, some joints cracked. Good set, internally very good. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 588. The first comprehensive treatise of physiology, "a vast and well-systematized storehouse of physiological knowledge, replete with citation and an incredible number of accurate references to literature" (Fulton / Wilson 81). Also includes important anatomical descriptions. Haller's most original physiological contribuitons were the establishment of both concepts of sensibility and irritability, recognition of the cardiac automatism and confirmation of an airless pleural space. In addition, Haller rejected the concept of an active systole occuring in the cerebral membranes, and the previous attempts to localize the seat of the soul. Moreover, he clarified the relationships between the cerebellum and the motion of the heart as well as other vegetative functionsŸ (Rothschuh 130, also 125ff.). Lundsgaard-Fischer 284.

William Smith was a graduate of Yale, became a distinguished New York lawyer, and later justice of the province. He was involved in a number of major land litigation cases in colonial New York, and it is likely that because of this he and Holland would have become closely acquainted. A Loyalist during the Revolution, Smith moved to Canada upon its conclusion and there became a chief justice as well. This history covers the period up to 1736.An important early history of New York. Howes rates the large paper edition a "d." This is only the second large paper copy of the work we have encountered. Howes S703, "d" (for the large paper issue). Streeter Sale 871. Church 1023.

His studies of minerals substances enhanced the understanding of various metals and compounds, the results of his many experiments heating substances in a furnace were published in his Lithogeognosia of 1746, his detailed tables of results were invaluable to the development of mineral chemistry.

Företalet är av utgivaren Linné vars eventuella inflytande på redigeringen av Hasselquists text har diskuterats. Hasselquists naturaliesamlingar och hans arabiska manuskript förvärvades av Lovisa Ulrika till Drottningholmssamlingarna efter att han dött av tuberkulos i Smyrna 1752, endast 30 år gammal. Arbetet är en av de första naturalhistoriska beskrivningarna över Palestina och översattes till engelska och tyska 1766, till franska 1768 och 1769 samt till holländska 1771. Fredric Hasselquist (1722-52) var prästson och hade 1747 disputerat på en avhandling om växternas verkan under Linnés presidium. Riksheraldikern m.m. Adam Lewenhaupt (1861-1944) byggde vidare på sin fars fina samlingar på Sjöholm i Södermanland och ägnade sig åt ett omfattande personhistoriskt författarskap
