        An English and Swedish dictionary: wherein the generality of words and various significations are rendered into Swedish and Latin ... thereunto is added a large collection of terms of trade and navigation, and an herbal or index of plants ... The second edition with large additions and corrections

      Printed at Harg and Stenbro near Nykoping in Sweden, by Pet. Momma, 1757. 4to, pp. [8], 16, unpaginated lexicon in double column; full contemporary Swedish calf, red morocco label; rebacked, with old spine laid down, endpapers renewed; spine quite rubbed, but generally a good, sound copy. With a 'Table of Terms of Trade and Navigation' and 'Words of Command and Sea-Terms' occupying 17pp. at the back, and another on herbal terms occupying another 12pp. Serenius chaplin to the Swedish embassy in London 1725-35, where he tried to strengthen the relations between Sweden and Great Britain. It was during this time that he began work on his dictionary, Dictionarium Suethico-Anglo-Latinum, first published in Stockholm in 1741. Termed second edition, the present work is basically a new undertaking, being twice the size of the original, with a much expanded emphasis on etymology. Serenius states in his preface that he has been influenced by Edward Lye, and 'in a manner excited by the late lexicographer Mr. Johnson, that prodigy of laboriousness and sagacity, who in the preface to his excellent Dictionary complains of a scanty knowledge in northern literature É I must own that the judicious author is aright." This must be one of the earliest acknowledgements by a foreign lexicographer of the achievements of Johnson. Serenius does not say so, but it seems likely that some of the etymologies were borrowed from him.

        Essai géographique sur les Isles Britanniques, 1757

      Paris, Didot, 1757. 4to (250 x 190 mm), S. [viii], 471, [1, blank], mit graviertem Zusatztitel, fünf Tafeln (zwei Falt- und zwei farbige Umrisse) und zahlreiche gravierte Ansichten von Großbritannien Eingeschlossen in eleganten, aufwendigen Rokoko-Grenzen Buchdruck mit einer gravierten Vignette (von Cambridge) Zeitgenössische Baumkalb, vergoldet Rote Kanten. Erste Ausgabe. Eine Beschreibung der britischen Inseln durch den ersten Chef-Hydrographie-Ingenieur der Dépôt des cartes, Pläne und Journaux du Ministère de la Marine. Neben der geographischen Darstellung Großbritanniens enthält Bellin einen Führer zum Navigieren seiner Küsten und eine Abhandlung über die Herstellung von Charts mit Verweisen auf andere Kartographen und ihre Arbeit. Der Autor, der seit über fünfzig Jahren seinen Posten am Dépôt hielt, war ein Mitwirkender der als Philosoph bewunderten Enzyklopädie und Mitglied der Royal Society. Seine berühmtesten Werke waren der Neptun François (1753) und die Hydrographie française (2 Bände, 1756-1765). Die Essay géographique, geschrieben von einem Hydrographer an den französischen König und veröffentlicht in den Anfangsphasen des Siebenjährigen Krieges, spiegelte sich wider Französisches Interesse an England zu einer Zeit, als die Invasion der letzteren einen ernsthaften Aspekt der französischen Kriegsstrategie bildete. Ein wirklicher Invasionstest, der vom französischen Außenminister Choiseul organisiert wurde, wurde im Jahre 1759 gemacht. "Die französische Toulon-Flotte konnte aus Toulon und durch die Straße von Gibraltar herauskommen, bevor sie von der portugiesischen Küste besiegt wurde. Die Brest-Flotte wurde von der bretonischen Küste zerstört. Hätten sie in ihren Absichten gelungen, wäre Pitt kritisiert worden, um die britische Stärke in Kanada, den Westindischen Inseln und Westafrika zu zerstreuen. . . . [Die] Landung einer regelmäßigen Kraft, die mehrmals größer war als die jakobitische Armee, die 1745 aus Schottland eingedrungen war, hätte für das britische Ministerium ernste Probleme gehabt und hätte sie wahrscheinlich dazu gebracht, einen Frieden zu akzeptieren, der auf günstigeren Bedingungen beruht Nach Frankreich, als sie sonst hätte erwarten können "(Schwarze, natürliche und notwendige Feinde, S. 61-62) .Cohen-de Ricci 129 Shirley, Atlanten I p. 205.T 2710. N de réf. Du libraire T2710 Paris, Didot, 1757. In-4 de (4) ff., 471 pp. 2 titres gravés et 5 cartes dont 2 dépliantes, rehaussées de coloris dépoque. Maroquin rouge. Reliure armoriée de lépoque. 255 x 194 mm. Das Buch Innere ist in einem dem Alter entsprechend gutem Zustand. Alle 471 Seiten komplett erhalten und auch die ausklappbaren Karten in einem guten Zustand. Das Hardcover ist in Ordnung, allerdings stark abgenutzt/abgegriffen, wie auf den Fotos zu erkennen.

        Hudibras.

      London [i.e. Paris?: no publisher],, 1757. Poëme écrit dans le tems des Troubles d'Angleterre; et traduit en vers françois avec des remarques et des figures. 3 volumes, duodecimo (166 x 95 mm). Contemporary red goatskin, smooth spines gilt-ruled in compartments containing central floral devices enclosed by star, diamond and leaf-form tools gilt, twin green morocco labels, three-line gilt borders to sides, floral cornerpieces gilt, all edges gilt, dot-and-line roll to turn-ins gilt, blue endpapers, bound blue silk pagemarkers. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 14 engraved plates of which 3 folding, woodcut head and tailpieces. Contemporary gift inscription from William Myddelton to one Sarah Webber, to the front free endpaper of each volume; bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and collector of eighteenth-century literature in contemporary bindings, to vol. 1 front pastedown; contemporary inscription to vol. 1 title identifying the translator as J. Townley (sic). Tips and bottom edges of boards lightly rubbed, the bindings nonetheless bright, the contents crisp and fresh. A superb copy. First edition in French, a "masterly translation" (Lowndes), of Butler's Civil War satire, one of 200 copies printed, this copy in a superior contemporary binding. The translator, John Towneley (1697-1782), piqued by Voltaire's dismissal of Hudibras as untranslatable, set about rendering passages for the amusement of salonnière Madame Doublet, and was persuaded to complete his translation by John Turberville Needham. It was "published anonymously in Paris in 1757, although the frontispiece indicated London as the place of publication, a stratagem to avoid censorship. The English original is given on parallel pages, and Hogarth's engravings [first published in 1726] are reproduced" (ODNB); the "remarques" are by Pierre Larcher, translator of Herodotus. Hudibras was originally published between 1663 and 1678; Towneley's translation was reprinted in 1819 with modernised French spelling and a revised English text.

Band 21: Registerband.Die MÜNCHNER AUSGABE bietet das gesamte dichterische und das autobiographische Werk (oft in verschiedenen Fassungen), sämtliche Schriften zu Literatur und Kunst sowie zur Naturwissenschaft. Zum ersten Mal in der Editionsgeschichte wurden auch die amtlichen Schriften in breiter Auswahl in eine Ausgabe Sämtlicher Werke aufgenommen. Die bedeutenden Briefwechsel mit Schiller und dem Komponisten und Berliner Musikprofessor Carl Friedrich Zelter (beiden hat Goethe selbst Werkcharakter beigemessen) sind ebenso enthalten wie die berühmten Gespräche mit Eckermann. Darüber hinaus wird eine Vielzahl weiterer Briefe und Gespräche in den Bandeinführungen und Kommentaren herangezogen. Goethes Werke erscheinen in dieser Ausgabe, im Unterschied zu bisherigen Goethe-Editionen, nach den jeweiligen Epochen seines Lebens und Schaffens geordnet. Die Ausgabe vereint jeweils in einem Band, was nach entstehungsgeschichtlichen Bedingungen, nach thematischen und strukturellen Gemeinsamkeiten, aber auch hinsichtlich der zeitgenössischen Rezeption zusammengehört. So wird im Rahmen eines Bandes die "wechselseitige Erhellung" unterschiedlicher Werkschichten sichtbar, die auch Goethe selbst wichtig war: von Dichtung und Naturwissenschaft, literarischer Produktion und theoretischer Reflexion, von Akten des Schreibens und autobiographischer Selbstdeutung. Für den Kommentar ergeben sich daraus neue Möglichkeiten, solche Zusammenhänge sichtbar zu machen. Neue Wege geht die Ausgabe auch mit dem dargebotenen Text: Sie vertraut nicht mehr der Ausgabe letzter Hand, sondern bemüht sich, auf bessere frühere Drucke oder die Handschriften zurückzugehen. Auch vom Konzept der Ausgabe her lag diese Entscheidung nahe. In Textgestalt, Anordnung und Kommentar entsteht so ein farbiges und historisch differenziertes Goethe-Bild, das sich der neuen Begegnung und aktuellen Aneignung anbietet. Eine Ausgabe, die - von besten Sachkennern betreut - sowohl den neuesten wissenschaftlichen Standard repräsentiert als auch leserfreundlich angelegt ist.[Die Bände liegen angenehm in der Hand und sind köstlich anzusehen!]

        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.***.

      Paris: Vincent, 1757. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. 1757-1760. 5 volumes. 12mo (165 x 96 mm). xi [1], 449 [3] pp. and 1 plate; [4], 414 (i.e. 412) pp. and 1 plate; [4], 449 [1], [2] pp. and 1 plate; [2] 480 pp.; [2] 435 [1] pp. and 1 plate. 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).

Philadelphia: Re-printed, and Sold by B. Franklin, and D. Hall, 1757. Small octavo (4-1/2 by 6-3/4 inches), early 20th-century full red crushed morocco rebacked with original spine laid down, top edge gilt. $4500.First American edition of Joseph Pike's influential Quaker work, a rare imprint of the firm of Franklin and Hall, issued near the same time Franklin became a representative for the Pennsylvania Assembly and the colonies of Massachusetts, Georgia and New Jersey in Britain, handsomely bound in full morocco.During Franklin's partnership of several decades with David Hall, their firm focused ""on those aspects of the printing business which were best established and likely to be most profitable—the Pennsylvania Gazette, the public printing for the Assemblies of Pennsylvania and the Lower Counties, the Poor Richard and pocket almanacs"" (Miller, xxx). By 1757, the year this work was published, Franklin had developed a close relationship with the Overseers of the Press on behalf of the Society of Friends (Minutes of the Meeting for Sufferings, August 29, 1757, 93). Franklin maintained a ""lifelong friendship with Quaker politicians, merchants and scientistsÂ… He admired Quakerism because of its affirmation of simplicity, frugality, anti-slavery and humanitarianism"" (Waldstreicher: 7.7). Pike, author of this Epistle, was a prominent Quaker merchant of Cork whose ""business affairs frequently took him to England, Holland and Flanders. On one of these journeys he accompanied William Penn to Holland and attended the yearly meeting at Amsterdam"" (Myers, 151). First issued in Dublin in 1726, his Epistle addresses ""good order and discipline in the Church."" Its publication in both Ireland and America signals its importance as a defense of the faith. As issued with ""Joseph"" spelled ""Josph"" on title page. Evans 8008. Hildeburn 1552. Miller 655 (issued behind a section title with Barclay's Anarchy of Ranters).

        Four Dissertations

      1757. First Edition . HUME, David. Four Dissertations. I. The Natural History of Religion. II. Of the Passions. III. Of Tragedy. IV. Of the Standard of Taste. London: Printed for A. Millar, 1757. 12mo, contemporary full brown speckled calf gilt sympathetically rebacked, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $3800.First edition of this collection of four essays, including the first appearance of HumeÂ’s Natural History of Religion, with scarce half title and dedication pages present.This classic volume includes the first appearance in print of HumeÂ’s important The Natural History of Religion and his only works in the field of aesthetics, Of Tragedy and Of the Standard of Taste. “In The Natural History of Religion, Hume maintained that there is no evidence of any specific instinct for religious belief. Some races have no religion. In all known cases the earliest religions were polytheistic and idolatrous, with no notion whatever of an intelligent cause of the whole frame of nature. They were as truly atheistic as would be the beliefs of a contemporary person who acknowledged the existence of elves and fairies but denied the existence of God” (Encyclopedia of Philosophy), an argument which lead to Hume himself being accused of atheism. “After publication Hume withdrew the dedication ‘To the Reverend Mr. Hume, Author of Douglas, a Tragedy,Â’ but cancelled the withdrawal four days later, 800 copies having been sold without it. He never reprinted itÂ… The fourth ‘DissertationÂ’ originally proposed by Hume was to have been Some Considerations previous to Geometry and Natural Philosophy; this he withdrew and substituted two, Of Suicide and Of the Immortality of the Soul. These two reached the proof stage before being withdrawn and replaced by Of the Standard of Taste” (Rothschild 1176). First edition, early state, with cancel leaves C12 and D1, as in all copies (Todd, 200); with uncorrected “ative” as the first word on page 9 and corrected “lancing” as the first word on page 131. With half title and scarce dedication pages. Fly title to the first dissertation bound after the title page. Jessop, 33-5. Todd, 200. Rothschild 1176. Early owner signature to title page.Occasional scattered light foxing to interior; expected age wear to contemporary calf boards. A handsome copy of this landmark philosophical work.

While he had finished his history of New York nearly up to the present time, he was persuaded “by forcible reasons” to limit the first edition of his history to the year 1732. The unpublished remainder appeared for the first time in 1826, as Volume IV of the Collections of the New-York Historical Society. Smith based his landmark work, a cornerstone of colonial history, “chiefly on the Provincial Laws, the Minutes of the Council, the Journals of the General Assembly and other government records” (Sabin 84566). In this copy, the frontispiece view of Oswego is a later version, re-engraved in Albany by D. Vaughan and printed by Gavit & Duthie. Bookbinder’s ticket of W.S. Barber of Brooklyn. Howes S703. Streeter 871. Faint stamp of the Long Island Historical Society on the title page.Text lightly toned, a few short tears along folds of frontispiece; scattered foxing to Continuation, outer paper hinges split, cords holding firm. Lovely copies of this seminal history.

        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.

The play was a revolution at its first performance, the theater then entered a totally new era, not only from an aesthetic point of view and literary but also political and social.

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.

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.

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).

        Four Dissertations. I. The Natural History of Religion. II. Of the Passions. III. Of Tragedy. IV. Of the Standard of Taste

      Printed for A. Millar, in the Strand, London 1757 - Duodecimo. 4 unnumbered, vii, 240pp. Contemporary calf with raised bands and double ruling and gilt lettering on red label of spine. 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. Page 9 with the correction to "lative" instead of "ativ" and a typographical error is corrected to "lancing" on page 131. 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. Paper plate with Samuel Johnson quote "Tradition is but a meteor, which, if it once falls." glued to inside front cover. Inside back cover reinforced with binder's tape at gutter.
