(Seven Years' War) Johnson, William
Lisboa: [Domingos Rodrigues], 1757. First edition. Woodcut vignette to title-page. 7, [blank] pp. Small 4to. THE BATTLE OF LAKE GEORGE. A Portuguese translation of General William Johnson's "Letter to the Governours of the Several Colonies who raised Troops on the Present Expedition" signed in the text "Wilhelmo Gonson." Not long after the commencement of the Seven Years' War, Johnson was appointed British agent to the Iroquois. On 28 August 1755, he renamed Lac Saint Sacrement Lake George in honor of the British monarch, and proceeded north as part of a four-pronged attack on the French, specifically to capture the French-held Fort St. Frédéric at Crown Point. "It was not the greatest battle of the French and Indian War, but it came when a victory was needed, and the results were momentous. It retrieved both the glory and morale so badly depleted when Braddock fell at the forks of the Ohio the previous July. It blunted a French drive which menaced Albany and the northern frontier, set up a new English outpost in that area, and the capture of a distinguished French general [Dieskau] was triumph for the victors and humiliation for the enemy" (Hamilton). The publication of this letter was, of course, a remarkable source of propaganda for the English and boosted Johnson's career signficantly. The letter was reprinted in London, an engraved plan of the battle was produced as well as portrait. This Lisbon printing is, however, very rare and little known. It's not in COPAC, there wasn't a copy in the Streeter Sale. In fact, the last copy on the market we can find was in 1928. Not … [Click Below for Full Description]

S. l. : 1757 Deux parties en un volume in-8, frontispice, (4)-206-(1)-(4)-168-(1) pages. Veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs fleuronné, gland doré estampé au centre des plats, roulette dorée sur les coupes. Première édition de ce plaidoyer en faveur du développement du commerce maritime. L'ouvrage est largement fondé sur la propre expérience de l'auteur. La dot de son épouse comportait en effet des terres sur l'Ile Bourbon, où il obtint les places de procureur général et de juge de police, avec l'appui du cardinal de Fleury et de Philibert Orry, contrôleur des finances. Nommé en 1741 premier conseiller de l'île, il profita de sa position pour recueillir de nombreux documents sur les intérêts du commerce maritime et les ressources de la navigation.Dans cet ouvrage, il souligne l'importance de la découverte du Nouveau Monde dans les échanges commerciaux et notamment dans le développement du commerce maritime, dont il note l'infériorité en France par rapport à la Grande-Bretagne et à la Hollande. Insistant sur la nécessité d'établir une flotte marchande en France, il examine les différentes branches de commerce entreprises par les armateurs, puis les moyens de les développer : culture des terres, commerce des grains dont l'exportation doit être autorisée, pêcheries, commerce du Levant, exportation du draps français aux Echelles du Levant et de Barbarie, à Constantinople et Smyrne, denrées de l'Amérique, importatiosn d'Orient, commerce avec les Echelles de Morée, Syrie, Égypte, etc. Pour promouvoir le commerce extérieur, il préconise également l'abaissement, si ce n'est l'an … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

DECKER MATTHEW
s.e, 1757. Due volumi di cm. 16,5, pp. (2) 302; (2), 392. Fregio al frontespizio, alcune testatine e capilettera xil. Graziosa legatura coeva in mezza pelle con punte; dorso a 5 nervi con titoli, filetti ornati e fregi in oro. Carta decorata ai piatti e tagli spruzzati. Mancanza alla parte alta del dorso di un volume e qualche forellino; lievi fioriture e qualche sporadica macchetta. Esemplare nel complesso genuino e ben conservato. Matthew Decker (1679-1749), nativo di Amsterdam, fu direttore della East India Company ed esperto di dinamiche commerciali. Definito da Adam Smith "an excellent authority", Decker si distinse per una visione del commercio internazionale basata sulla condanna delle restrizioni economiche. Le difficoltà della politica commerciale della Gran Bretagn sono indagnate puntigliosamente in relazione al sistema fiscale vigente nella prima metà del Settecento. La soluzione proposta da Decker consisteva nell'abolizione dei dazi e nell'istituzione di una tassa sul lusso, misura finalizzata a contrastare i monopoli, a fortificare i redditi più bassi anche attraverso il rilancio dell'industria. Prima traduzione francese (prima assoluta 1744) curata da J.P. de Gua de Malves, che integrò il lavoro di Decker con un brillante commento critico. Opera interessante e poco comune. Cfr.

Seven Years' War) Johnson, William
[Domingos Rodrigues], Lisboa 1757 - First edition. Woodcut vignette to title-page. 7, [blank] pp. Small 4to. THE BATTLE OF LAKE GEORGE. A Portuguese translation of General William Johnson's "Letter to the Governours of the Several Colonies who raised Troops on the Present Expedition" signed in the text "Wilhelmo Gonson." Not long after the commencement of the Seven Years' War, Johnson was appointed British agent to the Iroquois. On 28 August 1755, he renamed Lac Saint Sacrement Lake George in honor of the British monarch, and proceeded north as part of a four-pronged attack on the French, specifically to capture the French-held Fort St. Frédéric at Crown Point. "It was not the greatest battle of the French and Indian War, but it came when a victory was needed, and the results were momentous. It retrieved both the glory and morale so badly depleted when Braddock fell at the forks of the Ohio the previous July. It blunted a French drive which menaced Albany and the northern frontier, set up a new English outpost in that area, and the capture of a distinguished French general [Dieskau] was triumph for the victors and humiliation for the enemy" (Hamilton).The publication of this letter was, of course, a remarkable source of propaganda for the English and boosted Johnson's career signficantly. The letter was reprinted in London, an engraved plan of the battle was produced as well as portrait. This Lisbon printing is, however, very rare and little known. It's not in COPAC, there wasn't a copy in the Streeter Sale. In fact, the last copy on the market we can find was in 1928. Not … [Click Below for Full Description]

COYER GABRIEL-FRANCOIS
chez Duchesne, 1757. Due parti in un volume di cm. 16,5, pp. 152; 206 + (2) di cat. edit. Leg. coeva in pena pelle, dorso a 5 nervi con titoli su tass. e ricchi fregi in oro; tagli rossi. Minime spellature ai piatti e piccoli difetti alle cuffie, peraltro fresco e ben conservato. Gabriel Francois Coyer (1707-1782), gesuita francese, fu letterato e pensatore economico forse più apprezzato fuori dai confini nazionali; fu infatti membro della Società Reale di Londra. La Noblesse commercante fu la sua principale opera. Pubblicata nel 1756 scatenò numerose reazioni dottrinali, sfociate in altrettante edizioni a stampa. Le tesi contenute nella Noblesse, rivolte al progresso dell'economia anche attraverso l'affermazione di limiti da imporre agli aristocratici nell'esercizio delle attività commerciali, vengono riaffermate in quest'opera, edita a distanza di un anno allo scopo di respingere gli attacchi dei numerosi detrattori. Non comune edizione originale. Cfr. Einaudi, 1383. Goldsmiths, 9241; Kress 5597..

Vol. I has stains to boards and dampstains throughout, causing pages to wrinkle. Vol. II has a very slight dampstain only on front endpapers and is otherwise clean.

It is a contemporary history of the period 1658-1739 that covers the customes, rules, laws and habits of the period. Grimm considered this history as more thorough and reliable than Voltaire's 'Siecle de Louis XIV'. French text. Fair. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
