        An historical dissertation concerning the malignant epidemical fever of 1756. With some account of the malignant diseases prevailing since the year 1752, in Kidderminster.

      London: printed for W. Johnston 1758 - 8vo., viii + 68pp., without the errata slip, title-page a little soiled and gutter stained by tape and now strengthened by archival tissue, bound in 1982 in rich blue calf gilt, spine lettered. First edition. A scholarly first-hand study of an epidemic in the carpet-manufacturing town of Kidderminster (Worcestershire) in which Johnstone describes a new form of disinfectant for typhus. James Johnstone (1730-1802) was a distinguished Edinburgh trained physician who had established a medical practice in Kidderminster in 1751, having heard a report from his brother, who had preached there, that many children in the locality had recently died in an epidemic of diphtheria, of which James Johnstone had made a special study. He had an extensive practice area, well beyond Kidderminster itself, reaching to Lichfield, Stafford, Shrewsbury, Birmingham, and Wolverhampton. Among his illustrious patients were Lord Lyttelton of Hagley, Lord Chesterfield, Sarah Siddons, Lord Hertford, and Samuel Richardson. He published several medical papers, wrote on the abolition of slavery, and in 1795 reported on a recent earthquake. He was an honorary member of the Manchester Literary and Philosophical Society, a fellow of the Royal Medical Society of Edinburgh, and a member of Bath Philosophical Society, and as a corresponding member of the Medical Society of London he was the first to receive its medal.

        Philosophiae naturalis theoria redacta ad unicam legem virium in natura existentium

      4to (216x168 mm). [28], 322, [2: Index], 16 (Epistola ad Carolum Scherffer), [2: Adnotanda, et corrigenda] pp. and IV folding engraved plates, displaying 75 diagrams. Signatures: a-c4, d2, A-Rr4, Ss2, a4, b4, [†]1. Contemporary stiff vellum, marbled edges. In the present exemplar, as in other recorded copies, the errata leaf substitutes the leaf with the Monitum (printed on recto only), whose short text is included in the errata. From a quick survey of the extant copies of the Theoria it appears that most exemplars either have the Monitum leaf or the errata leaf, presumably printed at a later stage to replace the Monitum; very few copies have both. An unsophisticated, wide-margined copy, only slightly browned as usual.FIRST EDITION of this fundamental book in the history of scientific thought. 'A Theory of natural philosophy reduced to a single law of the forces existing in nature' marks the birth of atomic physics and contains other remarkable anticipations in modern theoretical physics and cosmology.Boscovich, inaugurating the modern search for a unified field theory, suggests that a single law is at the basis of all natural phenomena, and that our inadequate mathematical knowledge is the cause of our misperception of the multiplicity of physical forces. The chapter De Spatio, & Tempore, ut a nobis cognoscuntur ('On space and time as they are perceived by us') is regarded as an anticipation of the theory of relativity. Moreover, Boscovich's attempt to explain the structure of matter in terms of 'point atoms', called "puncta", governed by forces acting among them, is considered as a forerunner of the modern theory of quarks.The Theoria enjoyed an immediate success and a wide circulation. The work had a great influence on and was praised by such important physicists as J.-J. Lalande, P.-S. Laplace, A.-M. Ampère, J.-L. Gay-Lussac, M. Faraday, H. von Helmholtz, H.R. Hertz, J. Priestley, H. Davy, J.C. Maxwell, Lord Kelvin, J. J. Thompson, N. Bohr, and W. Heisenberg, who in 1958 wrote: "Boscovich's work contains numerous ideas that have found their deserved place only in the modern physics of the past 50 years, proving that Boscovich based his investigations in natural sciences on valid philosophical suppositions".The work was composed in Vienna. Boscovich entrusted the Jesuit Karl Scherffer (1716-83) with the publication of the book, which was printed in August 1758 soon after Boscovich had left the town. Scherffer was the supervisor of the Observatory at Graz and later became professor of mathematics in Vienna, where he taught Newton's Principia. As a sign of gratitude, Boscovich appended to his book a letter to Scherffer. The dedication to Cardinal Cristoforo Migazzi, Archbishop of Vienna, is dated February 1758. On March 4, while the book was still under the press, Boscovich travelled back to Italy, arriving in Rome in May. The first copies of the Theoria were sent to protectors and friends in Vienna on August 22. By November 21 the edition was already sold out. The work was reissued at Vienna in 1759, and a revised and corrected edition appeared in Venice in 1763."The 'Theory of Natural Philosophy' is now recognized as having exerted a fundamental influence on modern mathematical physics. Its author was born at Ragusa (Dubrovnik). He became a Jesuit and spent most of his life in Italy as professor of mathematics at the Collegium Romanum and at Pavia, and as director of the Observatory at Milan, and he also held academic posts in Vienna and Paris. Boscovich's theories are concerned in the first place with the constitution of matter, the behaviour of physical forces, and the nature of atoms and of light. Lucretius's theory conceived of atoms as hard particles in continual motion in a void, influencing each other by impact. His discussion of their relation to the various substances of nature is of the most general kind. Newton was an atomist with a clear notion of inter-atomic forces. Boscovich's views are different and come nearer certain ideas of modern physics. As the title of his book implies, he considered that a single law was the basis of all natural phenomena and of the properties of matter; that the multiplicity of physical forces was only apparent and due to inadequate mathematical knowledge. These 'point-atoms' of Boscovich were deemed to have a position - but no extension - in space, and to possess mass. Boscovich believed that each atom is surrounded by a field of force, alternately positive and negative through a number of cycles. The force exists whether there is at any point another atom for it to act upon, or not. Newton (and every other atomist) could_not believe in the continuity of matter. Descartes did, for he was not an atomist. The Theoria had an immediate success in scientific circles, even though it was regarded as no more than speculation. Joseph Priestley read it and a century later Faraday was influenced by it. Clerk Maxwell described its contents in his Encyclopaedia Britannica article on the atom. Lord Kelvin cited Boscovich frequently, and J.J. Thomson referred to him when describing the electron and his own idea of successive rings or shells of electrons in the atom, only the outer ones of which are chemically operative. This in its turn led to the work of Niels Bohr, who showed that the energy of the electron revolving in its fixed orbit was transformed into light energy of a definite frequency" (J. Carter & P.H. Muir, eds., Printing and the mind of man, London, 1967, p. 122)."Boscovich's Theory of Natural Philosophy is one of the great attempts to understand the structure of the universe in terms of a singles idea. Though conceived in the eighteenth century, and strongly influencing the nineteenth, it is in several respects a twentieth-century idea... The idea is simple: All phenomena arise from the spatial arrangements and relative displacements of identical point particles interacting by pairs under an oscillatory law determining their relative accelerations... Boscovich's 'new world' was an ideal atomic cosmogony, involving a new structural attitude to space and time. Moreover it was fundamental in the sense of being atomic and concerning itself with ultimate structure. Boscovich absorbed Descartes, Locke, Newton, and Leibniz, and fused what he needed into a unified structural interpretation of all known physical phenomena. He was the geometer of atomism, the Euclid of Democritus, thinking in terms of visual images of spatial patterns of particles... Part II of the Theoria covers applications to mechanics, e.g. systems of 3, 4, or more puncta, centre of gravity, action and reaction, collision, resolution of 'forces', centre of equilibrium and oscillation, pressure of fluids, etc. Part III treats applications to physics, e.g. penetrability, divisibility, gravity, cohesion, composite particles, solidity and fluidity, flexible rods, viscosity, elasticity, chemical processes, fire, light, cold and heat, electricity and magnetism... [Moreoer] the Theoria has brilliant passages on continuity, geometry, penetrability, non-interacting universes which might float undisturbed through each other, forms of matter with very high densities, finite universes, limit points, innermost structure, complex molecular fields, chemistry, chain reactions, probability, and the importance of the proportionality of gravitational and inertial mass" (L.L. Whyte, Boscovich's atomism, in: "Roger Joseph Boscovich. Studies of his life and work", L.L. Whyte, ed., London, 1961, pp. 102, 105, 110 and 116)."Although best known for its contribution to dynamical atomism and matter theory, the book also included considerations of a cosmological nature. For example, Boscovich imagined that, apart from our space, there might exist other spaces with which we are not causally connected. His conception of the universe was relativistic, such as illustrated by a passage from the end of Theoria, which may bring to mind much later cosmological ideas: 'If the whole Universe within our sight were moved by a parallel motion in any direction, & at the same time rotated through any angle, we could never be aware of the motion or the rotation ... Moreover, it might be the case that the whole Universe within our sight should daily contract or expand, while the scale of forces contracted or expanded in the same ratio; if such a thing did happen, there would be no change of ideas in our mind, & so we should have no feeling that such a change was taking place'. Boscovich imagined all matter to consist of point-atoms bound together by Newtonian-like attractive and repulsive forces. If no forces were present, a body might pass freely through another without any collision (after all, points have no extension in space). The possibility led him to a daring cosmological speculation: 'There might be a large number of material & sensible universes existing in the same space, separated one from the other in such a way that one was perfectly independent of the other, & the one could never acquire any indication of the existence of the other'. Boscovich did not elaborate. Here we have, in 1758, a new version of the many-universe scenario: not different universes distributed in space and time, but coexisting here and now. It was surely a scenario that harmonized in spirit with ideas that some cosmologists would propose more than two hundred years later" (H. Kragh, Conceptions of Cosmos, from myths to the accelerating universe: a history of cosmology, Oxford, 2007, p. 82). Ruggero Boscovich (Ruder Josip Boskovic) was born in Dubrovnik, at the time called Ragusa. His father was Serbian, his mother was from Bergamo, Italy. He had his first education at the Collegium Ragusinum, directed by Italian Jesuits. Then, in 1725, he was sent as a novice to the Roman college of S. Andrea delle Fratte. Three years later he moved to the Collegio Romano and started teaching logic and mathematics, taking the chair that had beloned to his teacher, O. Borgondio.In the following years he published many writings on physics, mathematics and astronomy, becoming the major supporter of Newton in his order. In 1744, when he was ordained, Boscovich was already a renowned scientist all over Europe. In 1746 he became a member of the Bologna Academy and in 1748 of Académie Française. Between 1750 and 1752 he made several geodetic surveys with the aim of drawing up a map of the territory of the Pope's state and measuring the meridian arc between Rome and Rimini.From 1757, probably due to friction with some brothers of his order, Boscovich was gradually removed from teaching and employed only for diplomatic missions. In that year he was sent to Vienna as a representative of the Lucchesi in a dispute over hydraulic works against the Florentines, who had sent as their expert father Leonardo Ximenes. His stay at the Habsburg court went on for over a year.In 1759 Boscovich visited Paris and Versailles, and made the acquaintance of the encyclopaedists, with whom he shared a mutual hostility. In 1760 he arrived in England, where he was welcomed by the English scientific word and accepted as a member by the Royal Society. In 1761 he was sent by the Royal Society to Constantinople to observe the transit of Venus scheduled for September that year. Boscovich arrived too late, but remained on the Bosphorus for over six months, then in 1762, bound for St. Petersburg, he reached Warsaw. In 1763 he was back in Rome.In 1764 Boscovich was appointed professor of mathematics and astronomy at the University of Pavia and undertook the construction of the new Brera observatory, of which he became the director. In 1768 he moved to the Palatine Schools in Milan. In 1773, when his order was suppressed, he resigned from all his positions and moved to Paris, where he started working for the French navy.In 1782 Boscovich came back to Italy, spending his last years in Pescia, Florence, Bassano, and Milan, where he died on February 1787 (cf. Z. Marcovic, Ruder Josip Boskovic, in: "Dictionary of Scientific Biography", Ch.C. Gillespie, ed., New York, 1970, II, pp. 326-332).L. Law White, ed., op. cit., pp. 50-68; 127-152; J. Carter & P.H.

        Extracts, from the several Treaties subsisting between Great Britain and other Kingdoms and States, of such Articles and Clauses, as relate to the Duty and Conduct of the Commanders of His Majesty's Ships of War. The third edition.

      London: Printed in the Year, 1758 - Quarto (240 x 191 mm). Contemporary red goatskin, decorative gilt spine with five raised bands, floriate gilt decoration within each compartment, green label, sides with broad decorative border of fleurons, corners with backwards-facing birds each balanced on a series of small tools emerging from an urn, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Some light abrasions and marks to binding. An excellent copy, with the prelminary blank [a1] and frontispiece. Attractive wood-engraved frontispiece showing the Admiralty fouled anchor on an escutcheon set against a trophy of arms within a scrollling cartouche (also featuring sextants, compasses, cannon and canonballs), tail-piece of a classical female figure representing the arts of navigation. Third edition - preceded by those of 1741 and 1747 - issued against the background of the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) and updated to take into account the latest maritime treaties: with Algiers (1751), France (includes treaty of Aix la Chapelle,1748), Morocco (1750-51), Portugal (1755), Savoy (1748 and 1750), Tripoli, and Tunis (both 1751 - and both comprising an extensive series of articles including the treatment of escaping slaves). Historical agreements are included with the fourteen treaties outlined here, between Britain and Algiers, Austrian Netherlands, Denmark, France, Morocco, Portugal, Russia, Savoy, Spain, States General, Sweden, Tripoli, Tunis, Turkey. The details of French treaties include several mentions of the American colonies. This is a decidedly distinguished binding - provenance of which cannot, regrettably, be ascertained - that was perhaps executed for an individual with a connection to the Admiralty. In its overall style, and in particular the use of the backwards-facing bird tool, it resembles the work of Jonas Hanway's first binder (see Maggs, Bookbinding in the British Isles, 1996, I 121). Hanway (1712-1786), merchant and founder of the Marine Society, had a particular devotion to maritime affairs. Therefore, the subject matter of the present volume places it very much in Hanway's sphere of interest. "He was another eccentric philanthropist who sought to further the good causes he favoured by presenting elaborately bound books on such subjects to possible subscribers" (Nixon & Foot, The History of Decorated Bookbinding in England, 1992, pp. 87-88).

        Paradoxes intéressans sur la cause & les effets de la révocations de l'Edit de Nantes, la dépopulation & répopulation du Royaume, l'intolérance civile & rigoureuse d'un gouvernement. Pour servir de réponse à la "Lettre d'un patriote sur la tolérance civile des Protestans de France. Avec une dissertation sur la journée de la S. Barthélémi

      S. n., S. l. 1758 - ____ Farouche partisan de la révocation de l'Edit de Nantes, l'abbé Novi de Caveirac montrent que les calvinistes ne peuvent être tolérés "par la nature de leurs principes" et "en raison de leur conduite passée." Après avoir examiné les conséquences économiques de leur départ de France, il expose les moyens qui permettraient d'augmenter la population sans les protestants. Il faut bannir le luxe et la misére du Royaume. Il préconise ainsi la diminution des impôts, l'établissement d'une taille réelle, la supression de la gabelle et des corvées et un renforcement de l'Administration provinciale. Alfred Sauvy a analysé cet ouvrage dans: "Quelques démographes ignorés du XVIIIe siècle." INED 3402. Petit accroc à la coiffe, mais bel exemplaire. *-------*. In-8. Collation : (4), VI, (4), 565, (1), LXIIII, (2) pp. Veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        A plan for the establishing a working-school, for the maintenance, education, and employment of poor children, especially orphans. And also rules for the execution and good government thereof. Proposed to the consideration of all who are or may be subscribers thereto.

      London John Ward 1758 - 4to, 15 + (1)pp., margins a little dusted in places, printed on heavy paper, early 19th century half calf over marbled boards, neatly rebacked and lettered, with the armorial bookplate of Ferguson of Raith> on front pastedown. A very good copy. First edition. The author proposes a school for poor children, especially orphans, from the ages of six to fourteen years old, the plan containing the rules covering such matters as diet, medical inspection, education, work to be undertaken etc. The Orphan Working School was established by a group of nonconformists in 1758, at Hoxton, for the reception of 20 destitute boys. In 1771 it moved to the City Road. In 1773 a building was erected for 35 boys and 35 girls. By 1846 1,236 children, both boys and girls, had been received into the institution. In 1846 it was proposed to move the school again, this time to a healthier position at Haverstock Hill, in the vicinity of Belsize Park. In 1988 the school, now called the Royal Alexandra and Albert School, was relocated in Reigate (Surrey). This was one of several similar proposals for social reform, including the establishment of charitable institutions for poor children in London during the 1750s. [See, e.g. others by Fielding, Hanway, Massie and Saunders Welch]. The present proposal was evidently based on purely philanthropic and Christian (but non-denominational) motives. 'Amongst the various objects calling for compassion, and the aids of charity, poor children, especially orphans, always have been justly esteemed some of the principal,' claims the author of the present 'Plan'.> 'Witness, amongst other excellent institutions, the great number of charity schools, in and about this city, erected and supported with the kindest design, and at no small expence. And yet experience has long shown, how ineffectual these are to promote their valuable intention; how little they answer the expence at which they are carried on. Their defects are too obvious to need enumerating; the subject of daily complaint; and lamented most by those who are most conversant in such matters. Children are formed for stations above what Providence designed them, or the public good requires. In the intervals between learning, they are left exposed to all the snares of indigence, evil example, and bad company. And for want of being trained to industry and diligence, contract habits of sloth and idleness, and are sadly exposed to the temptations thereof. Strange therefore it would be, if in an age so distinguished for charity as the present is, this important object of it should alone be neglected: and that while so many are wishing for something further to be done, none should attempt it. Such an attempt is now made .'. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
