        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.***.

      Vincent, Paris 1757 - 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).

        Memoirs of wool, woolen manufacture, and trade,

      Two vols., 4to., xxxi (5) 432 and 449 (1)pp., a little worm damage in blank upper margin of a few leaves in vol.II (nowhere near text), marginal dampstain in final few leaves also of vol.II, recently bound in Trevor Lloyd in fine old-style half calf, gilt and labelled. A very good copy. Best (fullest and most comprehensive) edition of a minor classic of industrial history. First published in two octavo volumes in 1747 as Chronicon Rusticum-Commerciale; or memoirs of wool, the author provides a masterly source-book for the subject. It has been universally praised: Williams (II, p.123) thought it "very valuable"; McCulloch described it as "one of the most carefully compiled and valuable works that has been published on the history of any branch of trade" (McC. p.237). Palgrave (1926, vol.III, p.425) is equally enthusiastic, calling the book "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".

        Anno Regni Georgii II. Regis Magnae Britaniae, Franciae, & Hiberniae, Tricesimo. At a General Assembly Begun and Holden at Charles-Town, on Tuesday the Twelfth Day of November . in the Year of Our Lord, 1754. And from thence Continued by Divers Prorogations and Adjournments to the 21st Day of May 1757

      Printed by Peter Timothy, Charleston 1757 - 27pp. Expertly bound to style in period marbled paper wrappers. Provenance: Jacob Motte A very rare act of taxation in colonial South Carolina. The personal copy of Jacob Motte, with his signature on the titlepage. Motte was a plantation owner and political figure in colonial South Carolina, and also the public treasurer of the province at the time these laws were published. This copy has extensive marginalia and other notations throughout. These notations, calculations, and holographic notes and corrections are evidently by Motte, since a tax act of this kind would certainly have related to his work in the treasury. The official printer of South Carolina at this time, Peter Timothy, was the son of the proto-printer of the state, Lewis Timothy, and (as recorded in an article by Douglas C. McMurtrie) was a regular correspondent with Benjamin Franklin (who had helped his father establish the press). Gould and Morgan locate only the copy at the Library of Congress and the present copy of this rare imprint.

        ACCOUNT OF THE EUROPEAN SETTLEMENTS IN AMERICA IN SIX PARTS IN TWO VOLUMES (2 Volumes)

      London: R. and J. Dodsley, 1757. First Edition. Very Good binding. The first edition set of an important history of the European expansion into the New World, which Howes considered the "best contemporary account". Probably a married set, as Volume I has the ex-libris of "Wm. A. Phillips" of Salina, Kansas, while Volume II has the signature of the well-known South Carolina planter Peter Porcher. Each volume with an engraved folding map by Emanuel Brown, of South and North America. Volume I has lengthy notes about the book on the flyleaf, in an early hand. In period calf bindings, with double gilt fillets to the perimeter of the boards, raised bands and volume numbers stamped in gilt. Volume II has a morocco title label, lacking in Volume I.

        Noticia de la California, y de su Conquista Temporal, y Espiritual Hasta el Tiempo Presente. Sacada de la Historia Manuscrita, Formada en Mexico Ano de 1739.

      En la Imprenta de la Viuda de Manuel Fernandez., Madrid 1757 - [24],240pp. plus folding map; [8],564; [8],436pp. plus three folding maps. Small quarto. Contemporary half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt, edges sprinkled green. Small bookplates on front pastedowns. Hinges rubbed, moderate shelf wear, minor worming in spine hinges and boards. Map of the Gulf of California has a 1¾ inch tear at the gutter margin, not affecting image. Internally clean and fresh. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase and chemise. The First Edition The very rare first edition of this classic history of California, frequently reprinted in various languages. Wagner states that the work "contains more on Lower California than almost any other book that had been published in one hundred and fifty years." Howes describes the work as the "first attempt at a history of California. Based, by the anonymous editor, Father Andres Marcos Burriel, on Venegas's 1739 ms., but incorporating information from other sources. Volume three of the original Spanish edition contains [an] account of discoveries on the Northwest coast attacking, as fictitious, the then accepted voyages of de Fonte and de Fuca." "Volume III contains extracts from Lopez de Gomara and Torquemada relating to the early explorations on the northwest coast and several articles written by Father Burriel himself. Of these the most interesting is his account of the construction of the map of California, and of the general map of North America.The extract from Torquemada relates to the Vizcaino expedition of 1602 and 1603 which Torquemada took from the diary of Father Antonio de la Ascension" - Zamorano 80.

        Carte De La Louisiane…

      [Paris]: 1757. Small engraved map, 30.5 x 22.4 cm (9 " x 12" excluding margins), uncolored, small decorative cartouche. Some aging and browning, some creases at folds, small tear in lower margin, impression bright and clean; very good or better. Bellin (1703-1772) born in Paris and according to Tooley was considered one of the most prominent cartographers of the 18th century in a career that lasted about 50 years. This is a colonial period map that was made after Delisle's map of the Mississippi and Louisiana. There is considerable detail, and the map shows the Louisiana Territory extending from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. The map also shows part of Northern Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, and even part of Texas. Some Indian territories, including the Apaches are shown along with some European settlements.

The regulations relate in Part I to Field-Duty for infantry, cavalry and artillery, in Part II to forming battalions, marching, passing a bridge, regiments in action, regulations for artillery when marching. The unknown editor states in his preface that in this work "many Articles of the Prussian Service are made public, which have hitherto been kept secret". See ESTC T112373 and Copac.

        ACCOUNT OF THE EUROPEAN SETTLEMENTS IN AMERICA IN SIX PARTS. IN TWO VOLUMES (2 Volumes)

      R. and J. Dodsley, London 1757 - The first edition set of an important history of the European expansion into the New World, which Howes considered the "best contemporary account". Probably a married set, as Volume I has the ex-libris of "Wm. A. Phillips" of Salina, Kansas, while Volume II has the signature of the well-known South Carolina planter Peter Porcher. Each volume with an engraved folding map by Emanuel Brown, of South and North America. Volume I has lengthy notes about the book on the flyleaf, in an early hand. In period calf bindings, with double gilt fillets to the perimeter of the boards, raised bands and volume numbers stamped in gilt. Volume II has a morocco title label, lacking in Volume I. The boards of Volume I have been discreetly reattached. (Sabin 9282; Howes B974). Very Good binding. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The History of the Province of New-York, from the First Discovery to the Year M.DCC.XXXIII. To which is annexed, A Description of the Country, with a short Account of the Inhabitants, their Trade, Religious and Political State, and the Constitution of the Courts of Justice in the Colony

      Thomas Wilcox, London 1757 - Bound (ca. 1900) by Rivière and Son (gilt-stamped on front turn-down) in a Grolier-style binding of full dark red crushed morocco. Triple gilt-fillet border with floral corner-ornament on turn-downs. On the spine, five raised bands with panels double gilt-fillet-bordered with a floral ornament. Title gilt in second panel within single gilt-fillet-border, author and publication same in third panel. Marbled end-papers. Top-edge gilt. Enclosed in a straight-grained dark red morocco pull-off case, also, presumably, by Rivière.\\Some chips to slip-case. Map mounted onto linen. Paper browned, but evenly and mildly; un-foxed. Some small chips to edges of pages. A very pretty copy indeed.\\Armorial book-plate of Samuel Jones, engraved by Henry Dawkins, on recto of the (original) binder’s blank. Signature of Jones on the upper edge of the same page. On the title-page, presentation inscription from the author (in a different hand) to Jones: "Ex Libris/ Samuelis Jones/ a Gulielmo Smith donatis 1756[8?]".\\William Smith (1727-1793), namesake of his father –a prominent lawyer and judge in his own right –wrote the first history of New York: the present item, running from 1492 to 1732. Smith planned and began work on a sequel, treating 1732-1762, that was published posthumously (1826). At first seeking to avoid revolution by siding with the British under Lord North, who proposed granting to the Americans everything short of independence, Smith eventually became a loyalist and emigrated to England. Still, his History gave him legitimacy as an expert on New York, for which he hoped to be granted command and territory by the British. Smith served as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the British colony of New York (which at the time was essentially confined to the City of New York) 1780-2 (I thank Mr. Michael Benowitz, Assistant Director of the Historical Society of the New York Courts, for his assistance).The book comprises five historical sections, with the fifth containing a treatment of the legislative and judicial structures in pre-Revolutionary New York.\\Smith presented the book, perhaps even before its publication (if the inscription reads 1756), to Samuel Jones (1734-1819), the first comptroller of the State of New York (1797-1800). Jones, also a loyalist, was elected to the Congress of the Confederation in 1788, although he did not attend. He is remembered as the "father of the New York Bar," and was a trustee of the New York Society Library, just south of us on E. 79th St.\\Jones’s bookplate was engraved by Henry Dawkins, one of the most prominent early America engravers. Dawkins was arrested in 1776 for counterfeiting money; held in jail for six months, he petitioned for the death penalty but did not receive it –fortunately, for he was commissioned to make the first engraving of the New York State Coat of Arms.\\Church 1023; Howes S703; Larned 1109; Sabin 84566; Streeter S 871.\On Dawkins: S.

Reliures de l'époque en plein veau marbré, dos à cinq nerfs ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés, ainsi que de pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge, plats aux armes du Duc de Hautefort et encadrés d'un filet à froid, toutes tranches rouges. Coiffe de tête du quatrième volume présentant un petit manque. Quelques coins très légèrement émoussés. Restaurations et reprise des dorures sur deux des dos. Rare édition en quatre volumes de cet ouvrage retraçant le retentissant procès de Robert-François Damiens, dernier écartelé de France, condamné pour sa tentative d'assassinat sur Louis XV. Une fois la peine prononcée, Damiens aurait eu cette phrase laconique restée célèbre : « la journée sera rude ». L'histoire veut que la sentence ait été exécutée dans des conditions particulièrement atroces : plus de deux heures et quart de supplice durant lesquelles les bourreaux ont du s'y prendre à quelques soixante reprises car on leur avait interdit de sectionner les jointures, ainsi qu'il était coutume. Cette véritable scène de torture est décrite par Voltaire dans son Histoire du Parlement de Paris, mais aussi par Casanova dans ses célèbres Mémoires : « Nous eûmes la constance de rester quatre heures entières à cet horrible spectacle. Je n'en dirai rien, car je serais trop long, et d'ailleurs il est connu de tout le monde. On ne sait si Damiens était un fanatique qui avait tenté de tuer Louis XV, ou un père voulant punir le roi d'avoir abuser sa fille et croyant accomplir une bonne œuvre. On pense qu'il ne chercha pas à le tuer mais à le blesser avec un canif, mais le roi saigna beaucoup et se crut à sa dernière heure. Le peuple présent à son supplice l'appelait monstre que l'enfer avait vomi pour faire assassiner le meilleur des rois qu'il croyait d'adorer, et qu'il avait appelé le Bien-Aimé.[.] Le peuple de France, dit M. de Voltaire même, est le plus abominable de tous les peuples. Caméléon qui prend toutes les couleurs, et susceptible de tout ce qu'un chef veut lui faire faire de bon ou de mauvais. » L'ouvrage, une succession de questions interro-négatives et de preuves de culpabilité témoigne des procédures judiciaires de l'époque ; la culpabilité étant avérée, on cherchait à extorquer l'aveu par tous les moyens rhétoriques ; le procès conduisit le plus naturellement à l'exécution que l'on connait, démontrant qu'une fois la machine judiciaire lancée, on ne peut l'arrêter, alors que Louis XV lui-même était désireux d'épargner sa vie.

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.

        Joannis Meursii Elegantiae Latini sermonis seu Aloisia Sigaea Toletana De arcanis amoris et veneris. Adjunctis fragmentis quibusdam eroticis

      ex Officina Elzeviriana, Amstelodami 1757 - 8vo, 2 parts in 1, pp. [2], xxiv, 211, [1]; [4], 172; engraved frontispiece, printer's woodcut device on both title pages; contemporary full mottled calf, double gilt rules on covers, smooth gilt-decorated spine laid out in 6 compartments, red morocco label in 1; corners showing, upper joint cracked, but still a nice copy. Willems 2178 noting that the book was actually printed in Paris by Barbou. From an old bookseller's catalog entry (laid in) "A blasphemous and erotic work foisted by Chorier on the pious and learned Spanish savante Louise Sigée, as translated into French by Jean de Meurs. Chorier's own works, however, are so mediocre that it is difficult to believe that he could have written this little masterpiece. What is now thought more likely is that a manuscript of one of Westrene's erotica came into his hands and that he had it published as a joke. This edition which is published as a pseudo-Elzevir is probably the work of the Compte d'Estaing who has added some additional material." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Pièces originales et procédures du procès, fait à Robert-François Damiens, tant en la Prévôté de l'Hôtel, qu'en la Cour de Parlement

      First edition in-12, published the same year as the original in-4, although its complete table of contents that was sold separately.Copy the arms stamped on covers of Count de Broc (Britain), Lord of the Mill and Jumelière, Azure, a chevron, accompanied of three crescents, all gold.Binders full mottled calf blond at the time. back smooth decorated with parts of title and volume number of red morocco and Havana, as well as boxes and gilded florets. boards to arms. 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.
