        Agreeable Ugliness: or, The Triumph of the Graces. Exemplified in the Real Life and Fortunes of a Young Lady of Distinction.

      Dublin: Printed by D. Chamberlaine and Sold by Michael North, 1757. 12mo, contemporary calf rebacked, dark red leather label, gilt rules and lettering. Half-title and two leaves of publisher's terminal ads present. ¶ An anonymous translation by novelist Sarah Scott of Pierre Antoine La Place's La Laideur Aimable, et les Dangers de la Beauté (1752). Agreeable Ugliness was traditionally thought to be an original work by Scott, however modern scholarship has conclusively shown it to be from the French of La Place (see Gaby Onderwyzer's "Sarah Scott's Agreeable Ugliness, a Translation" in Modern Language Notes, vol. 70, no. 8). Nevertheless, it is an interesting work of fiction that contrasts two sisters, one beautiful, vain and petty and the other unprepossessing (a "shocking monster" in the words of her mother), but of kind heart and agreeable disposition. ¶ Sarah Scott (1723-1795) wrote several novels, most famously A Description of Millenium Hall (1764) and was from a literary family: her sister was the famed Queen of the Blue Stockings, Elizabeth Montague. Contemporary ink signature of Thomas Burgh on the title-page, with his bookplate on the front paste-down and his now-faint ownership stamp on the upper board. Binding a bit rubbed and soiled; very good copy.

Cuoio Losanga copre su ogni piatto armi. Libreria di tag in mente. Nizza copia. Lattaignant (1697-1779) è considerato il grande canzone del suo tempo (ho buon tabacco ...), oltre a molte canzoni che ha scritto una luce e poesia galante tra cui La parola e la cosa è il pezzo più famoso. Come tale dediche canzoni o poesie sono abbastanza eloquenti e riassumono lo spirito di galanteria e libertina che il tempo; infine, una tabella mostra l'indirizzo e che ha presieduto l'occasione per scrivere pezzi. Voltaire, che ammirava, gli chiese una canzone: il raggiungimento sang bello; Trovò po 'crudele, perché sapeva come si prega di quanto [...] - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition après l'édition collective de 1756, donnée par l'abbé Delaporte ; une première édition collective parue sous le titre de Pièce dérobées en 1750 fut réalisée par Meunier de Quelon, dont on trouve la préface dans les pièces préliminaires.

Lattaignant (1697-1779) fut considéré comme le grand chansonnier de son époque (J'ai du bon tabac...), outre de nombreuses chansons, il est l'auteur d'une poésie légère et galante dont Le mot et la chose est la pièce la plus célèbre. A ce titre les dédicaces des chansons ou des poésies sont très éloquentes et résument assez bien l'esprit galant et libertin de cette époque ; in fine, une table reprend l'adresse et l'occasion ayant présidées à l'écriture des pièces.

Cuts and caps highlighted with golden threads. All marbled. A threadbare tail cap, a weakly broken tail. Some very tiny worm work on the joints. Nice copy.. Rare edition in four volumes of this book traces the sensational trial of Robert-François Damiens, quartered last of France, condemned for his assassination attempt on Louis XV After the sentence, Damiens would have this famously laconic " the day will be tough. " History has it that the sentence is executed in atrocious conditions: more than two hours and a quarter ordeal during which the executioners had to take it to some sixty times because we were not allowed to cut the joints, as well as it was customary. This veritable torture scene is described by Voltaire in his History of the Parliament of Paris, but also by Casanova in his famous memoirs: "We had the constancy to stay four whole hours in this horrible spectacle. I will say nothing, because I would be too long, and besides, it is known to everyone. It is not known if Damiens was a fanatic who tried to kill Louis XV, or a father wanting to punish the king of having abused his daughter and thinking do a good work. We think he did not try to kill but to injure him with a knife, but the King bled a lot and thought his last hour. This people to their torment called hell monster vomited to assassinate the best of kings he believed to worship, and he called the Beloved. [...] The people of France, said M. de Voltaire even, is the most abominable of all peoples. Chameleon who takes all colors, and capable of everything a chef wants him to do good or bad. "The book, a series of interrogative and negative issues of guilt evidence testifies to the judicial proceedings of the time; guilt is proved, sought to extort a confession by any rhetorical means; trial led him naturally to the performance that we know, demonstrating that once launched the judicial machine, we can not stop it, while Louis XV himself was eager to spare his life.

        Collection de thèses médico-chirurgicales, sur les points les plus importans de la chirurgie théorique et pratique; recueillies et publiées par M. le baron de Haller,et rédigées en francois par M.***.

Contemporary mottled French calf, spines ritchly decorated in gilt and with gilt-lettered morocco labels (only little wear to extremities), red-colored edges, marbled endpapers. Internally only little browned, occasional minor spotting, a few pencil marginalia in vol. 5. A fine set, rarely found complete as here. ----NLM/Blake p.195; Wellcome III, p.199; Conlon 57:829. FIRST FRENCH EDITION edited by Marquart of a collection of 163 inaugural theses and other medical tracts on surgery, partly presided by Haller in Göttingen. Haller's object was to illustrate a single disease, fatal cases where a post mortem had been made or where some trusty remedy had cured the patient. The in all 163 dissertations, ranging from 1666 to 1752, are presided over by Haller and such famous physicians as Lorenz Heister, Bernard Friedrich Albinus, Alexander Camerarius, Johann Sigismund Elsholtz, Jacob Benignus Winslow, Johann Adam Kulmus, and Friedrich Hoffmann. The collection is valuable as showing the subjects which interested surgeons during this period. They would have been lost to posterity if Haller had not preserved those which he considered to be the best either, as he says, on account of the full and accurate descriptions of disease, of new instruments invented or of unusual precautions adopted. Edition originale de la traduction par H.J. Macquart des "Disputationes chirurgicae selectae" (Lausanne, 1755-56) ou choix de thèses soutenues dans divers pays européens, réunies et éditées par le physiologiste allemand A. von Haller (1708-1777).

Decorative top and bottom borders on half title with advertisements on the verso and all four (half) title pages of respective essays. Publisher's device on title page.Four essays by the influential Scottish philosopher and historian. The publishing of this volume came about in a rather tumultuous fashion including little know episodes in the life of Hume (see Ernest Campbell Mossner in "Hume's Four Dissertations: An Essay in Biography and Bibliography"). Hume withdrew one of the original four essays, then adding two of which he withdrew one later, he canceled the dedication, 800 copies were printed without it, and never gave permission for a reprint in this arrangement again. First publishing of "The Natural History of Religion" with half title and dedication pages.

Includes Cancels C12 and DI but without K5-K8."The Natural History of Religion" argues that "polytheism or idolatry was, and necessarily must have been, the first and most antient religion of mankind (B2)." Monotheism Hume further argues that monotheism arises due to competition between religions and, as a consequence, the monotheist strives to dominate other religions, bury the emotional core of religion behind a veil of theology. Hume concludes that as a result this yields intolerance, dishonesty and morbid morals.In "Of the Passions" Hume attempts to exclude religion from our reasoning faculty of right and wrong while attributing our decision making process to overriding passions of any given moment, this way creating hope and fear which in turn gives rise to religion as a guiding vehicle.In the short essay "Of Tragedy" Hume elaborates on his concern regarding spectators pleasure in the sorrow and anxiety portrayed in a tragedy and comes to the simple conclusion that the viewer's astute awareness of the fictional character of the witnessed spectacle contributes to the pleasure experienced."Of the Standard of Taste" is considered a seminal contribution on aesthetics, the relativity of taste specifically, focusing on the "subject" rather than the "object" which is typical for the British sentiment as opposed to the French approach in trying to find an objective definition of beauty.Binding rubbed with some scuffing to joints of spine.

        Printed Admiralty order regarding venereal disease amongst sailors, signed by Anson and others.

      London: Office of the Admiralty, 5 October 1757. Folio, 6 pages plus integral blank; folded to docket size with manuscript annotation "Admiralty New Instructions relating to Surgeons" A scarce and desirable relic of eighteenth-century naval life: an official printed order from the Admiralty concerning the treatment of venereal disease amongst seamen, signed by three Admirals including the famous privateer and Pacific voyager George Anson.The document concerns the treatment of venereal disease by navy surgeons, ordering that some 15 shillings be deducted from the wages of each sailor to cover the cost incurred by the Navy. Gonorrhoea and syphilis were the bane of naval life, and this document laments both the spread of disease and seemingly impossible task of curbing the adventures of men during their time on shore: 'Having taken into consideration the great charge upon the seamen and others serving in the fleet, for Cure of Venereal Distempers, and that the same does not answer the desired effect of punishing to such a Degree, as to prevent the Men from running the Risque of getting those Distempers'The document is fully signed "Anson", followed by the signatures of two other Admirals (Forbes and Stanley). A little rubbed but very good condition indeed.

Cuts and caps highlighted with golden threads. All marbled. A threadbare tail cap, a weakly broken tail. Some very tiny worm work on the joints. Nice copy.. Rare edition in four volumes of this book traces the sensational trial of Robert-François Damiens, quartered last of France, condemned for his assassination attempt on Louis XV After the sentence, Damiens would have this famously laconic " the day will be tough. " History has it that the sentence is executed in atrocious conditions: more than two hours and a quarter ordeal during which the executioners had to take it to some sixty times because we were not allowed to cut the joints, as well as it was customary. This veritable torture scene is described by Voltaire in his History of the Parliament of Paris, but also by Casanova in his famous memoirs: "We had the constancy to stay four whole hours in this horrible spectacle. I will say nothing, because I would be too long, and besides, it is known to everyone. It is not known if Damiens was a fanatic who tried to kill Louis XV, or a father wanting to punish the king of having abused his daughter and thinking do a good work. We think he did not try to kill but to injure him with a knife, but the King bled a lot and thought his last hour. This people to their torment called hell monster vomited to assassinate the best of kings he believed to worship, and he called the Beloved. [...] The people of France, said M. de Voltaire even, is the most abominable of all peoples. Chameleon who takes all colors, and capable of everything a chef wants him to do good or bad. "The book, a series of interrogative and negative issues of guilt evidence testifies to the judicial proceedings of the time; guilt is proved, sought to extort a confession by any rhetorical means; trial led him naturally to the performance that we know, demonstrating that once launched the judicial machine, we can not stop it, while Louis XV himself was eager to spare his life.

        Carte Reduite des Isles Britanniques - Dressée aux Depost des Cartes, Plans, et Journaux de la Marine.

      Bellin,, 1757. Paris, Bellin, 1757. Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 55.5 cm x 90 cm. Outer Margins 67 cm wide x 97 cm high. Original Map with a 4 cm tear (repaired). Only very mild signs of foxing. A very beautiful and large map of the British Isles. Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703 ? 21 March 1772) was a French hydrographer, geographer, and member of the French intellectual group called the philosophes.nBellin was born in Paris. He was hydrographer of France's hydrographic office, member of the Académie de Marine and of the Royal Society of London. Over a 50-year career, he produced a large number of maps of particular interest to the Ministère de la Marine. His maps of Canada and of French territories in North America (New France, Acadia, Louisiana) are particularly valuable. He died at Versailles. In 1721, at age 18, he was appointed hydrographer (chief cartographer) to the French Navy. In August 1741, he became the first Ingénieur de la Marine of the Depot des cartes et plans de la Marine (the French Hydrographical Office) and was named Official Hydrographer of the French King. During his reign the Depot came out with prodigious amount of charts and maps among which was a large folio format sea-charts of France, the Neptune Francois. He also produced a number of sea-atlases of the world, e.g., the Atlas Maritime and the Hydrographie Francaise. These gained fame, distinction and respect all over Europe and were republished throughout the 18th and even in the succeeding century. Bellin also came out with smaller format maps such as the 1764 Petit Atlas Maritime (5 vols.) containing 580 finely detailed charts. nBellin set a very high standard of workmanship and accuracy thus gaining for France a leading role in European cartography and geography. Many of his maps were copied by other mapmakers of Europe.He was one of the Encyclopédistes, a group of 18th century intellectuals in France who compiled the 35-volume Encyclopédie which was edited by Denis Diderot and Jean le Rond d'Alembert. Bellin contributed 994 articles. The Encyclopédistes, were part of the group called philosophes among whose members were the great minds of the Age of Enlightenment, e.g., Montesquieu, Voltaire, Rousseau, Baron d'Holbach.nBellin contributed a number of maps to 15-vol. Histoire Generale des Voyages of Antoine François Prévost or simply known l'Abbe Prevost. One of these maps led to a geographical blunder whose impact reverberates to this day. This was the map of the Philippines which Bellin copied from a world-famous chart produced in 1734 by the Spanish missionary to the Philippines, Fr. Pedro Murillo Velarde.nnUnlike many other European mapmakers of the time who outright appropriated Murillo's map, Bellin had the intellectual integrity to fully credit Murillo as his source, an open acknowledgement shown in the title cartouche of Bellin's map which came out the same year as the original work by Murillo.nnShown in Bellin's map was an island named "Limasava", a word invented in 1667 by Spanish friar, Fr. Francisco Combés, S.J., to refer to the way station of the Armada de Molucca under the command of the Portuguese captain-general Fernao de Magalhaes during its navigation in Philippine waters. Combés, who had not read a single eyewitness account of the Magellan expedition relied on two sources, the hopelessly garbled Italian translation of the Antonio Pigafetta account by Giovanni Battista Ramusio and the secondhand account by Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas. Ramusio wrote the fleet anchored in March?April 1521 in Butuan in Mindanao, and from there sailed for Cebu with a brief stopover at "Messana". In the authentic Pigafetta account, the port was an isle named Mazzaua while the stopover isle was named Gatighan. Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas gave a faithful narration of the Mazzaua anchorage.nnCombés disregarded de Herrera's version and adopted Ramusio's. He wrote that Magellan's fleet had anchored at Butuan and from their sailed for Cebu making a stop at a way station he named Limasaua.nnFive years earlier than Combés, Fr. Francisco Colín wrote the Armada moored at Butuan from March?April 1521 where Magellan and his men together with the natives celebrated an Easter Sunday mass on 31 March 1521. From Butuan the fleet sailed for Cebu making a brief stop at a way station he called "Dimasaua", an invented word meaning "this is not the Mazagua of Antonio de Herrera where supposedly an Easter Sunday mass was held which I already said happened in Butuan." This episode was projected in the 1734 map made by Murillo who used Combés name, "Limassava" not "Dimasaua" which map Bellin copied.nIn 1789, Augustinian Carlo Amoretti, Italian Encyclopedist and librarian of Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan, discovered the authentic Italian manuscript of Antonio Pigafetta among the scattered holdings of the library. Here it came out that the port of March?April 1521 was not Butuan but Mazaua. Amoretti, who himself had not read any of five eyewitness reports of the incident including two French versions of Pigafetta's account, asserted in a footnote that Mazaua was probably the isle named Limasava in Bellin's map, thus interchanging the real port of Mazaua with the way station Gatighan. Largely with the appearance of the eyewitness account of Ginés de Mafra, the only seaman in Magellan's fleet to return to Mazaua, whose testimony reveals a concrete, measurable description of Mazaua, the skein starting from the garbled version of Pigafetta by Ramusio to the mishandling by Combés to Bellin and finally to Amoretti has been unraveled: Pigafetta's Gatighan is Bellin's Limasava.

        A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful

      London: for R. and J. Dodsley,, 1757. Small octavo (184 x 114 mm). Contemporary dark sheep, spine in compartments with gilt tooling and somewhat later red morocco title label, double gilt rule bordering sides. With the half-title. Ink ownership inscriptions to front endpapers. Repair to headcap, ends and corners worn, covers generally somewhat rubbed and scratched, front joint split but holding, repair to front hinge and front free endpaper, some marks, spots and light cockling within, E8 and F1 with small section cut from bottom margin, but on the whole quite fresh, and overall a very good copy. First edition, published in what Todd calculates to have been "a rather small edition, possibly limited to 500 copies", in the original binding with the half title stating "price-bound three shillings". The Philosophical Enquiry is Burke's first truly successful work, winning praise in many quarters: Dr Johnson, "an example of true criticism"; Hume, "a very pretty treatise"; Reynolds, "the admirable treatise"; and Kant describing Burke as "the foremost author" in "the empirical exposition of aesthetic judgments" (Writings and Speeches, 1.187-8). "His enduring achievement was to have tackled a difficult subject in a fashion accessible to any educated reader" (ODNB). The book was also fundamental to subsequent discourse about the sublime in Romantic literature and art.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Moses"). [Berlin, Mai/Juni 1757].

      1757. 1 S. Folio. Heiterer Brief an den jungen Buchhändler und Schriftsteller Friedrich Nicolai (1733-1811), mit Mendelssohn Herausgeber der Zeitschrift "Bibliothek der schönen Wissenschaften und der freyen Künste", dessen erster Halbjahresband im April 1757 erschienen war. Mendelssohn berichtet von einem Besuch bei Johann Georg Sulzer (1720-79), der mit dem Werk bekanntgemacht und wohl auch für Beiträge gewonnen werden sollte. "Mon Ami / Ich bin bey Hn. P[rofessor] S[ulzer] gewesen. Dieses Compliment scheint ihm überaus angenehm gewesen zu seyn. Er fragte, ob die Hrn. Mitglieder unbekant bleiben wollten. Ich sagte: sie wünschen es noch einige Zeit bleiben zu können - Er 'Kan ich dieser Gesellschaft worin nützlich seyn? und welche Gelegenheit wollen Sie mir geben, diese besondere Höflichkeit zu verschulden?' - Ich - Sie wünschen nichts als Ew. etc. Compl[i]mente. - Er - nahm die Bibliothek besah den Titel - Ey das ist vortreflich! Daß sich dise Herrn in einem eintzigen Felde einschränken, und ô [nicht] wie bisher von den Journalisten geschehen, von allen etwas auskrahmen wollen. Sind auch eigene Abhandlungen darin? - ja, und zwahr vom Trauerspiel - Er - 'daran fehlt es noch ziemlich im deutschen.' Ich finde aber nichts von den freuen [freien] Künsten darin - ich - Sie belieben die vermischten Nachrichten nachzuschlagen, allwo Sie auch Ihren Plan zum Dictionaire des Beaux arts ziemlich weitläufig recensirt finden werden - Er - mit großen Erwartungsvollen Augen - wo? wo? - ja hier, ich werde mir Zeit nehmen es durch zu lesen. Machen Sie indeßen diesen Herren etc Complimente - 'Warum aber kommen Sie nicht, und erzehlen dieses mündlich?' - Ich weis nicht, mein Herr!..." Linker Rand mit länglichem Ausschnitt (ohne Textberührung) und Heftspuren. - Im ersten Band der "Bibliothek" war u. a. Nicolais wegweisende "Abhandlung vom Trauerspiele" erschienen. Sulzer lehrte als Professor für Mathematik am Joachimsthalschen Gymnasium; seit 1750 war er Mitglied der Akademie der Wissenschaften. Erst 1760 erschien Sulzers erster (und einziger) Beitrag zur "Bibliothek". Sein Hauptwerk "Allgemeine Theorie der schönen Künste" erschien 1771-74 in Leipzig; es wurde von Goethe und Wieland ablehnend beurteilt. Gesammelte Schriften, Bd. 11, Nr. 49b (mit kleinen Abweichungen und einer Auslassung).

        Essai sur l'histoire générale, et sur les moeurs et l'esprit des Nations, depuis Charlemagne jusqu'à nos jours

      - S.n., S.l.[ Paris] 1757, In-12 (10x17cm), viij, 348pp. et (4) 344pp. et (4) 342pp. et viij, 400pp. et (4) 346pp. (2) et (4) 294pp. et vij, 340pp. et (4) 316pp. (3) et (4) 365pp. (1) et (4) 360pp. (2), 10 volumes reliés. - nuova edizione Leganti completa fiera vitello periodo freddo. Indietro con i nervi decorati. Parti in marocchino rosso, marocchino e il numero del volume di tabacco. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition parisienne après l'originale parue sans lieu et sans nom également à Genève chez les frères Cramer (1756-1757). Cette édition a été publiée par le librairie Lambert et s'insère dans les oeuvres complètes du même éditeur, tout comme l'édition de Genève (Voir bengesco : Voltaire. Bibliographie de ses oeuvres). En 1771 Voltaire optera pour le titre définitif : Essai sur les moeurs et l'esprit des nations. Reliures en plein veau blond glacé d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièces de titre de maroquin rouge, et de tomaison de maroquin tabac. Tranches dorées. Tomaisons de X à XX, mais les pages de titre sont tomés I à XI. Un manque au mors inférieur en tête du tome XVI. Mors inférieur du tome XVIII épidermé avec 4 trous de vers. Dos des tomes XV et XVI épidermés sur la première moitié du dos. 4 feuillets détachés dans le tome XIII. Malgré quelques défauts, bel exemplaire. L'ouvrage est bien davantage qu'une histoire du monde depuis Charlemagne. On sait par ailleurs que toutes les éditions du Second Empire jusqu'à aujourd'hui même ont été expurgées des idées défendues par Voltaire et contraires à l'image de l'auteur construite par la modernité. Une des thèses centrales est la perversité de la religion chrétienne, et plus particulièrement catholique, dont l'enseignement est manifestement erroné. Les races selon Voltaire ne pourraient découler d'une seule source, elles sont trop hétérogènes. L'essai sur les moeurs contient en effet toutes les thèses d'un racisme et d'un antisémitisme qui s'épanouira au XXe siècle et Voltaire s'y montre non seulement mysogine mais également antisémite et xénophobe. Or cette oeuvre est importante pour Voltaire qui ne cessera durant quinze années d'y travailler, et s'il se montre en faveur d'un despotisme éclairé, ce choix est mûrement réfléchi. L'ouvrage de Voltaire est fort important, car il montre les paradoxes d'un homme épris de justice (Le Traité sur la tolérance), un homme des Lumières, mais agité lui-même des préjugés de son époque. Le premier volume débute par une étude des Chinois, puis des Arabes, avec de longs chapitres sur Mahomet et l'Islam.  "Il est difficile de mesurer ce que l'histoire doit à l'Essai sur les moeurs. La présence de Voltaire dans l'évolution historiographique est certaine. Son influence est plus délicate à circonscrire ; elle varie selon les générations et selon les écoles » (L. Trenard).  Ex libris du XIXe : Blanche de Chateaumorand.

        Arrest de la Cour de Parlement contre Robert-Francois Damiens (26 Mars 1757). WITH: Arrest de la cour de Parlement, contre la famille de Robert-Francois Damiens (29 Mars 1757)

      Paris: P.G. Simon, 1757. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 4to: 13, [1] pp. (final page blank). Original self-wrappers, stitched (some soiling). Top corner of the margins have a diagonal cut (no loss of text) perhaps to remove the "Arrest" from others that were fastened together, otherwise the edges are untrimmed. ADDED: Arrest de la cour de Parlement, contre la famille de Robert-Francois Damiens, Extrait des registres du Parlement. Du 29 Mars 1757. 4to: 3 pp. THE INFAMOUS DAMIENS TRIAL CHANGED THE CRIMINAL PUNISHMENT PROCESS IN CIVILIZED NATIONS WORLDWIDE. First printing of all the gruesome details of the trial and death sentence (by torture) on Robert-Francois Damiens for feebly attempting to assassinate Louis XV. The sentence mandated execution by means of torture that was so cruel, so ghastly, so horrible, and so sickening, that it merited immediate and justifiable outrage on an international scale, and even now continues to shock legal and sociological historians, notably Michel Fouchault, who described Damiens's torture and execution at length in his pioneering work on "Discipline and Punish" (1979). Damiens' was the last sentence of its kind in France, and the events prompted real changes in the punishment phase of the legal system, in France and elsewhere. By the present Parliamentary decree, the Royal Executioner, aided by sixteen assistants, was ordered first to torture Damiens with red-hot pincers; the hand with which Damiens had held the knife during the attempted assassination was to be burned with sulpher. Then molten wax, molten lead, and boiling oil were to be poured into the aforementioned wounds. He was then to be publicly drawn and quartered. All of this went according to plan, except for the final punishment: Damiens' limbs did not separate, even after several horrific hours, during which time two of the four horses became so exhausted that they had to be replaced by two fresh horses. Damiens' endless shrieks were so incredibly disturbing that many people in the crowd -- including the Royal Executioner, Nicolas-Charles-Gabriel Sanson -- were unable to watch and turned away. The officiants came to realize that the process simply was simply not working. As Sanson had abrubtly resigned from his post, his son was ordered to partially cut Damiens' limbs with an ax in order to save the horses from further misery. When at last Damiens' limbs were pulled apart, his reportedly still-living torso was burnt at the stake. TOGETHER WITH: The equally rare Edict which sentenced Damiens' family, their only crime being that they were in some way related to him. The "Arrest de la cour de Parlement, contre la famille de Robert-François Damiens, Extrait des registres du Parlement" is the infamous 3-page pamphlet that was published on March 29, 1757, i.e. on the day following Damiens' execution; it records the Parliamentary sentence of Damiens' family which mandated that: the house of Damiens' birth was to be razed; his wife, daughter, and father were to be banished from France, and all other relatives were ordered to change their names with immediate effect. Ours appear to be the only copies on the market.
