        Four Dissertations.

      London: for A. Millar,, 1757. I. The Natural History of Religion. II. Of the Passions. III. Of Tragedy. IV. Of the Standard of Taste. Duodecimo (165 x 98 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, expertly rebacked preserving most of the original spine, new red morocco label, raised bands with double gilt rules, edges speckled red. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown, extremities worn, tiny hole to initial blank, sporadic light foxing. A very good copy. First edition, with the scarce half-title and dedication. The first word on p. 9 is "ative" instead of the corrected "lative" (the first copies printed correctly, but the "l" was then dropped and then again reinserted in later copies). The first word on p. 131 is corrected to "lancing" (the "l" was initially misprinted as an "I"). Cancels C12 and D1 and the omission of K5-K8 agree with the description of Todd, p. 200. These essays were offered by Hume to his publisher in June 1755 for 50 guineas. "After publication Hume withdrew the dedication to John Home or Hume (author of the tragedy 'Douglas'), but cancelled the withdrawal four days later: in the interval 800 copies were sold without it. He never reprinted it"(Jessop, p. 34). In this copy the half-title and the first divisional title have been inverted.

        La géographie universelle: où l'on donne une idée abrégée des quatre parties du monde, et des différens lieux qu'elles renferment, par Jean Hubner. Nouvelle édition, revûë & augmentée de quantité d'articles nouveaux & des divers changemens arrivés jusqu'à la fin de l'année 1756. COMPLETE 6 VOLUME SET. EDWARD GIBBON ASSOCIATION.

      Basle: Jean Rodolphe Im-Hoff, 1757. 6 vols. Small 8vo. (17 cm.) Table of mileages between principal cities of Europe in vol. I; indexes at the end of each volume. - A geographical encyclopedia of all the regions of the earth by a well-known geographer and the son of an even more famous one. Translated from the German but according to the tastes of a French audience (from the preface). Full calf binding, 5 raised bands, spine titles. This set belonged to John Baker Holroyd, First Earl of Sheffield (1735-1821) and his bookplate appears on the front pastedown of each volume. Earlier name penned on bottom of the t.p. in each volume (inked out in 2): Pavilliard Pasteur 1762. Binding is somewhat scuffed, some joints are rubbed or cracked, spine ends chipped, worming in first and last volumes in early and final sheets, minor worming in vol. 5. A few minor stains, but mostly clean throughout and a nice set. Pencilled notation (for an auction?) on top of each front pastedown. The first owner was Daniel Pavilliard, a Calvinist minister in Lausanne, Switzerland, best known as the preceptor of the young Edward Gibbon, who had been sent to Lausanne by his father to be cured of his conversion to Roman Catholicism at Oxford. Gibbon lived under Pavilliard's roof for 5 years in the 1750s. Pavilliard, presumably cured him of the "errors of popery" but more significantly was an excellent teacher who was the major influence in Gibbon's education. John Baker Holroyd was Gibbon's life-long friend, and served as the editor of his friend's memoirs and was the executor of his estate. Baker Holroyd, known also as Sheffield, had a significant career as an MP, and was the author of British policies that seriously affected maritime commerce in the newly independent US. There is no evidence that Gibbon himself owned the set, and his friend had the opportunity to acquire it from Pavilliard directly in 1763 when he was in Lausanne with Gibbon. The calf binding came later: the set acquired from Pavilliard may have had paper covers or cheap boards, as his name is partially covered up at the gutter by the binding in some volumes or the date 1762 is cut off at the bottom margin. In vol. 1-2, Pavilliard's name is written over in ink; vol. 1 has name "J. Holroyd" at the top right edge of t.p. NOTE: This is a 6 volume set and will require extra shipping costs.

        NOTICIA DE LA CALIFORNIA, y de su Conquesta Temporal, y Espiritual Hasta el Tiempo Presente Sacada de la Historia Manuscrita, Formada en Mexico año de 1739. por el Padre Miguel Venegas, de la Compañia de Jesus; y de otras Noticias, y Relaciones antiguas, y modernas

      Madrid: Imprenta de la Viuda de Manuel Fernandez, 1757. First edition. Vellum lightly soiled and worn, chips to first volume spine label, old mend to verso of map in first volume and to title page of third volume, minor foxing. Overall a very good set in very presentable condition. 3 volumes, small quartos; [24], 240; [8], 564; [8], 436 pp.; 4 folding copperplate maps: Vol. 1 "Mapa de la California su golfo, y Provincias Fronteras en el Continente de l Espana" (approx. 14.75 x 12.25 inches); Volume 3: "Seno de California, y su Costa Oriental Nuevamente Descubierta, y Registrada Cabo al las Virgenes, Hasta su Termino, que es el Rio Colorado año 1747..." (approx. 12.5 x 11.25 inches); "Carta de la Mar del Sur, o Mar Pacifico, entre el Equador..." (approx. 9.25 x 9 inches); "Mapa de la America Septentl. Asia Oriental y Mar del Sur Intermedio..." (approx. 11.75 x 14 inches). Later full vellum with dark green morocco spine labels Generally regarded as the first published history of California, the first two volumes of "Noticia de la California" deal exclusively with Baja (lower) California and are based on the manuscript written by Mexican Jesuit scholar Miguel Venegas in 1739. Though he was himself unable to travel he compiled his history from a variety of sources, including reports, letters, mission documents, original manuscripts, etc. Upon its completion his manuscript, titled "Impressas Apostolicas . . . de la Provincia de Nueva Espana obradas en la conquista de Californias . . . ," was sent to Spain where it went unpublished for several years, deemed too potentially revealing of Spanish military secrets in New Spain. The work was eventually turned over to Jesuit historian Andres Marcos Burriel who anonymously edited and extensively revised the manuscript. Burriel brought to Venegas' work additional information from a variety of sources and ultimately organized "Noticia" into four parts. The first introduces the geography and native inhabitants of Baja California; the second explores pre-Jesuit attempts to colonize the region; the third focuses on Jesuit activities in Baja and includes both Venegas' original work and Burriel's additions to bring the text up to date. The fourth part (comprising the whole of the third volume) is entirely the work of Burriel and is composed of a series of seven appendices and three maps. The text includes accounts of discoveries in Northern California, including Russian activities on the coast. Burriel also dismisses as fictions the widely accepted accounts of the voyages of de Fuca and de Fonte. The maps include Father Ferdinand Consag's "Seno de California," based on his own findings in a 1746 expedition to the mouth of the Colorado River. This is the first printing of the map, engraved from Consag's original manuscript. It is foundational in the cartographic history of California, as it put a definitive end to the notion of California as an island. The large frontispiece map in the first volume "Mapa de la California su golfo . . ." (which is based on Kino’s 1702 map) is beautifully rendered and includes ten captioned vignettes bordering the cartographic image. These depict local Indians, local wildlife, and two tableaux dramatizing the martyrdoms of of Father Carranco and Father Tamaral. These same images were reprinted as plates in the first English-language edition of the work (London, 1758). The London edition was an abridgement of the work and included only one map. Subsequent French (1766) and German (1769) editions were translations from the English. Intermediate issue with page 479 misnumbered as 476. Cowan p. 238; Graff 4470; Howes V69; Palau 358387; Sabin 98848; Streeter sale 2433; Wheat Transmississippi West 138; Zamorano 80 #78.

        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.

        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 20.1, 20.2 und 20.3: Briefwechsel mit Zelter. 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). Very Good.

      London [i.e. Paris?: no publisher], 1757 - 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. 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. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 14 engraved plates of which 3 folding, woodcut head and tailpieces. 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. Lowndes p. 336 [Attributes: First Edition]

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). Bookplate of Reverend Anson Phelps Stokes, who was the son of prominent New York financier Anson Phelps Stokes and a descendant of two early American families, the Phelps and Stokes, both ""early settlers in the Massachusetts colonyÂ… the Reverend was secretary of Yale University, and pastor of New Haven's most fashionable church, Saint Paul's Episcopal"" (Birmingham, The Rest of Us, 58).Text generally fresh with light scattered foxing, expert restoration to morocco.

        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.

        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.
