        Fugitive Pieces in Verse and Prose

      [Twickenham]: Strawberry Hill Press. 1758. First Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary full calf with five raised bands on spine, spine lable bearing gilt titles and elaborate gilt decoration to rest of spine, boards with gilt tooled border and inside gilt dentelles, upper joint cracked and upper board held on just two cords, lower joint started from bottom edge, aeg, marbled endpapers with small bookplate on front pastedown, title page with vignette, contents clean and bright. , Printed in an edition of 200 copies, this is one of the earlier productions of Walpole's press at Strawberry Hill, which he founded in 1757. This copy is in the first state identified by Hazen but lacks the inserted note after p.216 (Hazen 4), as Walpole's own copy lacks this note Hazen states that its presence or absence cannot be used to identify a seperate state of the first edition. Walpole dedicates the book to his cousin Henry Seymour Conway (1719-1795). Conway was an army officer and politician who had a remarkably close relationship with Horace Walpole. They attended Eton together and maintained a close friendship throughout their lives. The closeness of that friendship, and Conway's alleged sexual ambiguity, would lead contemporaries to insinuate a sexual element to their relationship. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, [ii] iii-vi [1] 2-219 [1] pp .

        Verschiedene Zwiefalter und Käfer mit Hörnern.

      Nebst drey Kupfertafeln mit Figuren in Farben. Regensburg, Gebrüdern Zunkel, 1758. 4:o. (6),36,(2) s. & 3 utvikbara handkolorerade grav. plr. Rödbrunt pappbd med mörkt blå titeletikett (Johanna Röjgård). Gamla marmorerade snitt. Bra ex.. Nissen Die zoologische Buchillustration 3643. Planscherna signerade av Jac. Andr. Fridrich och Fr. Schaur. Jacob Christian Schäffer (1718-90) var tysk präst, botaniker, mykolog, entomolog, ornitolog och uppfinnare. Parallellt med sin prästerliga bana utgav han 1759 "Erlechterte Arzney-Kräuterwissenschaft", en botanisk handbok för läkare och farmaceuter om medicinska effekter av växter. 1762-64 skrev han fyra rikt illustrerade volymer inom mykologi, "Natürlich ausgemahlten Abbildungen baierischer und pfälzischer Schwämme, welche um Regensburg wachsen". 1774 utkom "Elementa Ornithologica", i vilken han framlade ett system för klassificering av fåglar baserade på benens struktur. Detta arbete följdes upp med "Museum Ornithologicum" 1789, i vilket han beskriver arter i sina egna samlingar. Inom entomologien publicerade Schäffer 1779 ett arbete som omfattade tre volymer, "Icones insectorum circa ratisbonam indigenorum coloribus naturam referentibus expressae", vilket innehöll 280 handmålade planscher föreställande omkring 3000 insekter. En introduktion till entomologien, "Elementa entomologica", följde 1789. Schäffer hade även en omfattande kuriosakabinett, "Schaefferianum Museum", vilken var öppen för allmänheten och som Goethe besökte under sin resa till Italien. Som medlem av talrika akademier korresponderade han med många naturforskare, inklusive Carl von Linné. Naturforskning var inte det enda område som intresserade honom. Han utförde experiment med elektricitet, färger och optik och uppfann även en tidig tvättmaskin, vilket han presenterade 1767 i "Die bequeme und höchstvortheilhafte Waschmaschine". Andra uppfinningar var bl.a. en såg och en ny masugn. Pappersframställning var ochså något som han intresserade sig för under 1765-71, vilket resulterade i "Versuche und Muster, ohne alle Lumpen oder doch put einem geringen Zusatze derselben, Papier zu machen". Detta arbete visade att sådant som olika växter, t.ex. poppel, mossa och humle kunde användas vid papperstillverkning

        L'Ami des Femmes

      [S.l.]: [s.n.], 1758. Very Good. [4], 159, [1] p.; 15 cm. Signatures: pi2 A-F12 G8 (12mo). Contemporary full mottled calf with six spine compartments. Gilt-tooled title in second compartment; gilt-tooled decoration in remaining compartments and along board edges. All page edges red. Marbled endpapers. White ribbon bookmark. Quotation from Aristotle below title; typographic title vignette. Unsigned 2-page Advertissement follows title page. Advertissement and following section, titled L'Ami des Femmes, have typographic head- and tail pieces. The remainder of the work consists of 12 numbered and titled chapters. Armorial bookplate on front fixed endpaper with text "Ex Libris Brölemann" and in ink at lower edge "2461." In an old hand on the verso of the front free endpaper: De La Farelle. The bookplate is that of Henry-Auguste Brölemann (1775-1869) and his son Arthur Brölemann (1826-1904). Whether this edition or the 188-page edition printed in Hamburg by Chretien Herold in the same year is the true first edition has not been established. The anonymous author, Pierre-Joseph Boudier de Villemert, advocated increased educational opportunities for women so that they could fulfill their role as agents of reform. In Very Good Condition: edges lightly rubbed; lower corner of back board has slight loss of leather; upper corner of second leaf lacking (Advertissement) without loss of text; very faint dampstain from fore-edge of first two leaves; otherwise clean and tight. A very attractive copy of this scarce edition of L'Ami des Femmes.

        A Discourse Concerning the Residual Analysis; A New Branch of the Albebraic Art, Of very extensive Use, both in Pure Mathematics and Natural Philosophy

      London: Printed for J. Nourse, 1758 First edition. Recent quarter crimson morocco over marbled boards, gilt spine, new endpapers. . Quarto. Occasional light foxing. A very good copy. John Landen (1719-1790) was the most notable British mathematician in the second half of the eighteenth century. At the time when British mathematics was held back by inadequate notation, an unfortunate consequence of the Newton-Leibniz dispute, he was the only Englishman to score major advances in mathematics and in the art of computation. In this book and the succeeding Residual Analysis, Book I (1764), he attempted to replace the fluxional calculus with an analytic method "founded entirely on the anciently received principles of algebra." According to Lacroix, this was the first attempt to reduce the infinitesimal calculus to "purely mathematical notions" (Oxford DNB). Landen's writings served as the starting point for investigations by Euler, Lagrange, and Legendre. He also developed the theorem known by his name for expressing the length of a hyperbolic arc in terms of the lengths of arcs in two ellipses

Övre hörnet bortrivet på s. 43 med förlust av pagineringen och det nedre hörnet bortrivet på s. 75. Med Eric Törnqvists exlibris.. Bihangen består av avtryckta brev från F. Angerstein respektive Maria E. Aspgreen. Johan Brelin (1734-82) avreste i januari 1755 till Kina med Ostindiska kompaniets skepp Sophia Albertina under kapten Carl Gustav Lehmans befäl. Hemresan från Kina blev lång och omständlig. Brelin gick vilse, bröt foten och blev akterseglad på den obebodda ön Ascension väster om Afrika. Han fruktade "en död som kan med skäl kan kallas den svåraste", men räddades i sista stund av ett franskt fartyg. Med bruten mast tog de sig till Brasilien och sedan vidare mot Portugal där Brelin en kort tid misstänktes vara spion. Utfattig genomlevde han en vinter i Amsterdam innan han i april 1757 kunde återvända till Sverige. I Stockholm fann Brelin att han "blifvit redan såsom döde begråtne" och att hans anhöriga ännu bar sorgedräkt för hans skull. Hans strapatsrika skildring präglas likväl av ett gott humör och ett öppet sinnelag. Resebeskrivningen utgavs i faksimil 1973

Geringius och C. Bergquist. Sten Lindroth skriver om Triewalds tid i Stockholm under 1720-talet då han efter återkomsten från England försökte "bedriva propaganda för den experimentalfysik, vars resultat skulle lägga grunden till det teknologiska framåtskridandet. Han hade sin medförda instrumentsamling och nyåret 1728 inledde han på Riddarhuset sina föreläsningar över den moderna naturläran, fortsatta över två terminer. Triewalds föreläsningar (1730 upprepade av hans assistent Daniel Menlös) väckte stort upseende. Anhopningen av apparater och experiment kunde väl förvirra men åhörarna kom i skaror, även förnämt folk som riksråd, generaler och diplomater. Villigt sällade de sig till subskribenterna, när Triewald i reviderat och utökat skick omsider utgav sina föreläsningar i två volymer med vackra kopparstick". Trots dess uppenbara lån från utländska auktoriteter betonar Lindroth arbetets betydelse då det var "en redig och levande framställning på modersmålet av centrala områden inom den moderna fysiken. De adelssköldar som återfinns på de graverade planschbladen vittnar om Triewald förmåga att värva sponsorer till sina företag. Boken blir därigenom en av de tidigaste svenska vapenböckerna

        Paradise Lost

      London - J. and R. Tonson, 1758 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An early and very well-preserved copy of Milton's classic poem Paradise Lost, and one of the earliest of JohnBaskerville's printings. Once Paradise Lost was published, Milton's stature as epic poet was immediately recognised. He cast a formidable shadow over English poetry in the 18th and 19th centuries; he was often judged equal or superior to all other English poets, including Shakespeare. Taken from Thomas Newton's annotated edition of the poem. Newton (1704 - 1782) was an English cleric, biblical scholar and author. His most remembered workwas his annotated edition of Paradise Lost, including a biography of John Milton, published in 1749. John Baskerville printed works for the University of Cambridge in 1758 and, although an atheist, printed a splendid folio Bible in 1763. His typefaces were greatly admired by Benjamin Franklin, a printer and fellow member of the Royal Society of Arts, who took the designs back to the newly-created United States, where they were adopted for most federal government publishing. Baskerville also was responsible for significant innovations in printing, paper and ink production. He developed a technique which produced a smoother whiter paper which showcased his strong black type. Baskerville also pioneered a completely new style of typography adding wide margins and leading between each line. Condition: Rebound in half-morocco binding. Externally, very smart, with just some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages have some scattered spotting throughout. Overall:VERY GOOD INDEED..

The Faerie Queene was a new departure in the history of English poetry, being a combination of Italian romance, classical epic, and native English styles. (DNB)Louis du Guernier, 1687 - 1716, was a French engraver. Du Guernier was soon recognized as a good designer, etcher and engraver, especially [of] small historical subjects for books or plays, of which he did a great many (Vertue, Note books, 2. 131). He worked in particular for Jacob Tonson. . . He was involved in many prestigious undertakings, particularly for noble patrons. (DNB)Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. The hinges are starting but still generally firm.

Contemporary calf, gilt-ruled spine with brown leather label, edges sprinkled red. . Quarto. With a scholarly introduction to the Stoic philosophers by the translator, an impressive list of subscribers, and an index and appendix of variant readings. Joints starting to crack, but sound. Endpapers lightly foxed, a few small splotches on edges, small chip in back free endpaper. Engraved bookplate of Iames Hustler of Acklam, dated 1730; armorial bookplate of British judge Geoffrey, Lord Cross of Chelsea (1904-1989). A very good, clean copy. Elizabeth Carter (1717-1806) was a noted member of the Blue Stocking Circle. Despite an early learning disability and "with a persistence that won the praise of V. Woolf in A Room of One's Own," (as Margaret Drabble reminds us in the Oxford Companion to English Literature) she learned Latin, Greek, and Hebrew in childhood with her brothers, and later studied French, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Arabic. She was a friend of Samuel Johnson, who thought her one of the best Greek scholars he had known, and invited her to contribute to The Rambler. She made a number of translations, of which this is considered her masterpiece. It was undertaken at the request of her friend, Catherine Talbot, who arranged for publication and solicited subscribers, amongst which were a large number of women, and members of the Johnson circle.

        L'ARCHITETTURA DI M. VITRUVIO POLLIONE. Colla traduzione italiana e comento del Marchese Berardo Galiani.

      In folio (mm. 400x258), bella legat. in p. pergam. coeva, cornice dorata ai piatti, decoraz. e tit. oro su tassello al dorso, tagli rossi, 4 cc.nn. (inclusa l?antip.), XXXII,462 pp.num., 1 c.nn. (indice dei rami), illustrato da 25 tavv. inc. in rame (le relative descriz. sono su foglio a parte). Opera dedicata alla Maestà di Carlo Re delle Due Sicilie.. Testo latino affiancato dall'ottima traduzione e commento del Marchese Galiani (1724-1774), autore anche dei disegni delle tavole, inc. da Francesco Cepparulli. Il vol. è ornato da interessanti grandi iniziali e finali, con vedute di rovine classiche, inc. su legno da Ignazio Lucchesini; l'antiporta (che rappresenta un allegorico "trionfo dell'architettura"), il frontespizio e la vignetta alla dedica sono inc. in rame da Francesco La Marra. Il lavoro dell'erudito marchese napoletano è di grande pregio. Fu una delle iniziative più importanti tra gli studi vitruviani di tutto il secolo e fu accolto con generale favore dall'ambiente colto italiano, tanto che ebbe almeno sette ristampe. I commenti, che risentono del pensiero razionalista dell?Illusminismo e ampiamente presente tra i patrizi della Corte napoletana, sono in strettissima relazione con l?interesse per l?archeologia, che si diffuse in Europa nella seconda metà del Settecento, grazie soprattutto agli scritti di Winkelmann. Importante "prima edizione" della traduzione e commento del Galiani. Cfr. Berlin Katalog,1820 - Fowler Collection,424 - Comolli,III,54-55 - Cicognara 733 - Cat. L?Archivolto (1983) - Riccardi,II,618. Antip. e p. 267 con antico restauro al solo margine; alc. carte con uniforme arross. più o meno lieve, ma certamente un buon esemplare su carta distinta.

        De l'Esprit.

      Paris, Chez Durand, 1758. 4to. Very nice cont. full mottled calf w. five raised bands on richly gilt back. All edges of boards gilt. Top-layer of leather on back-board gone. Upper hinges a bit weak, top-capital worn. Internally very nice and clean. W. the large armorial bookplate of Lord Viscount Lymington. W. half-title. Large woodcut title-vignette and many smaller vignettes throughout. (4), XII, 643, (1, Approbation + Privilege) pp.. First edition, second issue of the monumental work of French Enlightenment. Helvetius' main work, because of which he is remembered today. The work caused an immense uproar, when it appeared. It was considered heretical, atheistic, immoral etc. and lost its privilege within a few weeks; it was heavily condemned by the Church and the State and was burnt by the Hangman, the plan being to destroy all copies of it. Rarely had a book been met with such opposition, condemned by both the son of Louis XV and the Sorbonne, and the priests succeeded in convincing the court that the doctrines presented in this work could hardly be more dangerous, so even though Helvetius wrote three retractions, the book was still publically burned. Probably due to the noisy condemnation of the work, it was almost immediately translated into all European languages, making it quite influential. The likes of Bentham and Mill were influenced by the early utilitarian thoughts presented in the work, but apparently France was not ready for these new thoughts. When the Encyclopédie of Diderot and d'Alembert was suppressed for the second time, this had much to do with De l'Esprit, since Helvetius was thought to have been inspired by the dangerous encyclopedia.Both issues of the first edition are rare, and only four complete copies are known of the first issue. The printing history of the work is extremely complicated, but due to David Smith's bibliography from 2001, it has now been possible to positively identify this copy as being the first edition, second issue, i.e. E.1B. Not in Graesse, not in Brunet.From the library of Lord Viscount Lymington, who was married to Catherine Conduitt; because of her mother being the niece of Newton, his books and manuscripts ended up in the library of Viscount Lymington

        Försök til mineralogie, eller mineral-rikets upställning.

      Sthlm, Wildiska tryckeriet, 1758. 8:o. (40),251 s. Nött samtida hfrbd med upphöjda bind och spår av mörkbrunt infärgat titelfält. Svagt rödstänkta snitt. Pärmsidorna hårt nötta. En namnteckning bortklippt överst på försättsbladet och författarnamnet skrivet både med bläck och blyerts på titelbladet. Inlagan däremot mycket bra med några enstaka rättelser och marginalanteckningar. Ett litet nagg i övre marginalen på s. 231. Från Ericsberg.. Utgiven av P. J. Bergius. Översattes till tyska, engelska, franska, italienska och ryska. En ny svensk upplaga utkom 1781. "Försök til mineralogie" är Axel Fredric Cronstedts huvudarbete med vilket han snabbt vann ryktbarhet i Europa. Vid slutet av 1760- och under 1770-talet var Cronstedt en lika stor auktoritet inom mineralogin som Linné inom botaniken. Hans revolutionerande indelning av mineralriket byggde på kemisk analys istället för på klassificering efter yttre egenskaper och utseende. När A. G. Werner vid slutet av seklet utvecklade sitt system, som med tiden skulle bli rådande, följde det i huvuddrag det som presenterats i Cronstedts arbete 40 år tidigare
