        The culture of silk: or, an essay on its rational practice and improvement. In four parts ... For the use of the American colonies.

      London: Pr. for A. Millar 8vo. Frontis., xv, [1 (blank)], 299, [1] pp., plt.. 1758 Interest in the production of silk in the New World began with the Spaniards in the 16th century, though despite the best efforts of many in Mexico, the enterprise came to naught. Either undaunted by or unaware of the failure of these earlier efforts, the English in the 18th century attempted the introduction of sericulture into their regions of North America. This early English treatise on the possibilities of silk culture in British North America was aimed at planters and owners of land on which the essential mulberry trees could be planted, and entrepeneurs looking to enter a new business at ground level. In the period 1750 through 1820 there was considerable interest in the development of this potentially lucrative enterprise. The work in hand is divided into four parts: "I. On the raising and planting of mulberry trees. II. On hatching and rearing the silkworms. III. On obtaining their silk, and breed. IV. On reeling their silk-pods." The two plates (one being the frontispiece) show various machinery and tools for, and stages of, the production of silk. The author, a "reverend," flourished 1734–60. Recent quarter calf, antique style. Round spine with raised bands accented with gilt ruling. Gilt center devices in spine compartments. Green morocco title-label. Marbled paper sides. Light foxing. A very good copy.

        Homeri Opera. 4 Vols bound in two (Complete) [HOMER'S ILIAD AND ODYSSEY]

      Robert and Andrew Foulis, Glasguae (Glasgow) 1758 - Folio. XI, [1], 312, [2], 336, [6], 297, [5], 336pp. Full gilt-stamped calf. Rebacked but retaining the original covers in both volumes.

Previous owner's armorial bookplate on inside of each front board (Carolus Jacobus Stuart Baronettus), with the motto: 'Justitiae Propositique Tenax.'This striking edition of the collected works of Homer is one of the most splendid and correct productions of the Foulis press.

Elegance and correctness in an eminent degree characterize their various publications; some of which may justly surpass those of Barbou and Bodoni. "Homeri Opera" is the Foulis brothers' masterpiece.Covers partly and moderatly rubbed along edges. Corners slightly bumped (not affecting pages). Very minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Text in Greek. Binding in overall good to good+, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        SERMONS UPON THE FOLLOWING SUBJECTS, VIZ. THE DIVINITY OF JESUS CHRIST. THE MILLENIUM. THE WISDOM OF GOD, IN THE PERMISSION OF SIN

      Boston: Edes and Gill, 1758. FIRST EDITION y. This unprepossessing volume of sermons by a Congregational minister is a superb example of an early American binding in outstanding condition. The theological meditations making up the text examine the divinity (versus the human nature) of Christ, the promises of the book of Revelations, and the question of whether permitting sin is evidence of God's wisdom. Joseph Bellamy (1719-90) studied at Yale with the great theologian Jonathan Edwards, who became a life-long friend. His memorable and eloquent sermons made him a leading light in the evangelical revival known as the Great Awakening. He revealed one of the secrets of his success as a preacher in his admonition to one of his students, who was given to hellfire and brimstone orations: "thunder less and lighten more," for it is lightning, not thunder, that strikes a man down. Bellamy was respected as a theologian on both sides of the Atlantic, and was awarded an honorary degree by the University of Aberdeen in 1768. His reputation in Britain no doubt suffered when he embraced the cause of American independence. The simple sheepskin binding--done very near the time of printing as evidenced by the inscription on the endpaper--has a dozen double fillets of gilt on the spine, which in Puritan Boston qualified as ornate for a book of this nature. It is rare to find an early American binding in such fine condition.. 159 x 89 mm. (6 1/4 x 3 1/2"). vi, 209, [3] pp. FIRST EDITION. Austere but pleasing contemporary sprinkled sheepskin, raised bands flanked by double gilt fillets. Front free endpaper with ink ownership inscription of S. Williams dated 1759; title page with ink inscription of E. Church dated 1847. Evans 8081. Mild dampstaining to lower outer corner of half a dozen gatherings, faint overall browning (typical of American imprints like this one), F2 with two small paper flaws affecting three words on either side of the leaf, K5 with two-inch light brown stain, but still quite an excellent copy, the text fresh, and the original unsophisticated sheepskin binding in unusually fine condition, with only trivial wear. This unprepossessing volume of sermons by a Congregational minister is a superb example of an early American binding in outstanding condition.

        Historia Naturalis Ranarum nostratium. Die natürliche Historie der Frösche hiesigen Landes worinnen alle Eigenschaften derselben sonderlich aber ihre Fortpflanzung umständlich beschrieben werden. Mit einer Vorrede Herrn Albrechts von Haller.

      - Nürnberg, Johann Joseph Fleischmann, 1758. Folio (425 x 300mm). pp. (8), viii, 115, (1), text in parallel columns in Latin and German, with fine handcoloured engraved frontispiece and 24 hand-coloured engraved plates, each with a plain anatomical key engraved plate, 6 engraved headpieces. Contemporary calf, richly gilt ornamented spine with red gilt lettered label, sides with gilt border and corner pieces. A beautifully bound copy of the first edition of the most beautiful work published on amphibians. 'For instance, Roesel von Rosenhof's illustrations of the frogs and other amphibians have never been surpassed in their beauty, accuracy and vitality. The frontispiece to his 'Historia Naturalis Ranarum' , showing frogs in a pond surrounded by wild roses, is beyond praise' (Dance, Art of Natural History p. 74). "The present volume is one of the classics on amphibiology. The illustrations are the finest and the whole work is admirably done. The title and text appear both in Latin and German and there is a preface by A. von Haller - altogether a very valuable, early contribution to the literature of the batrachia' (C.A. Wood). "These plates must be among the most beautiful illustrations in all of herpetology. The complete life cycle of all species of German frogs and toads is presented in great detail - including amplexing adults and developmental stages of tadpoles - together with their anatomy and osteology"(Adler, K. Contributions to the history of herpetology p. 10).The excellent plates are by the author, the frogs and toads are from southern Germany and illustrate internal anatomy, skeletons, embryological development, copulation etc. The anatomical key plates closely follow the coloured versions, omitting or adding anatomical details.Roesel von Roesenhof (1705-1759) was a German artist-naturalist, miniature painter and engraver in Nürnberg, publisher of one of the most beautifully illustrated German entomological works 'Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigung .'.

Contemporary mottled calf, spine richly gilt. A beautiful, fresh, fine set. One of the most useful contemporary authorities on French Louisiana, based on the author's sixteen-year residence there. Jefferson instructed Lewis and Clark to take an edition of the book on their expedition.

".Valuable for showing French claims to southern territory east of the Mississippi and for particulars concerning Indian nations there" - Howes. Of special interest is a short account of Louis de St. Denis' expedition to New Mexico in 1715. ".A curious mixture of history, travel narrative, tall stories, and reminiscences.touch[ing] upon almost every phase of Louisiana in [the author's] time." - Clark.

Internally quite clean and fresh, with very light foxing in places, small tear to fore-edge of leaf Z6 (pp. 549-550). A very appealing copy. * First edition. With indexes for East Jersey and West Jersey. The third official compilation of New Jersey law, and the scarcest according to Felcone, it is the first to print fundamental laws, constitutions and documents from 1663 to 1702 and session laws from 1668 to 1702. "This handsome volume, generally known as Leaming and Spicer's Laws, was prepared under the authority of an act of Assembly passed in 1752, and is the largest work issued from the press of Wm. Bradford. Subscribers' names were first solicited in February, 1755, the compilers having spent nearly two years in its preparation.

(Vera Créola, Berne). Grand classique, ?encore une autorité de nos jours? (Hoefer).Le traité du «Droit des gens», qui venait combler un vide aux dires de l'auteur, connut immédiatement un énorme succès et fut rapidement traduit dans les principales langues de l'Europe. Dépassant les travaux de Grotius, de Wolff et de Puffendorff, Vattel nous propose une oeuvre incontournable en ce qui concerne les bases fondamentales des gouvernements et les constitutions des peuples, les rapports politiques des nations entre elles et avec les princes, les relations commerciales, maritimes et autres intérêts qui unissent ou divisent les Etats, tout cela sous le signe d'une politique nouvelle, régie par la justice et la probité. Jeanneret, en 1863, n'hésitait pas à dire de cet ouvrage qu'il était ?encore une autorité de nos jours? ?Als Christian Wolf's Schüler hat der Schweizer Vattel durch sein 1758 erschienenes Droit des Gens den meisten Einfluss auf die Gelehrten wie auf die Staatsmänner der folgenden Jahrzehnte gewonnen?

        Catecismo mexicano.

      Mexico: Impr. de la Bibliotheca Mexicana Small 8vo (14.5 cm; 5.75"). [17] ff., 170 pp., [1] f.; plt.. 1758 The first edition of Father Ignacio de Paredes's translation of Father Ripalda's Spanish-language catechism into Nahuatl. Both men were Jesuits, but in different centuries and on different continents: Ripalda was born in Spain in 1535 and died in 1618, never having left Europe; Paredes was born in Mexico in 1703 and died there the year this book was published, hailed as one of the most important Nahuatl scholars of the period. Beristain describes Paredes as being "outstanding in the Mexican language." His volume was intended for use by missionaries, by parish priests, and by Indians: Indeed, there is a => prologue intended to persuade Indians in particular to read and learn this catechism. The volume is illustrated with woodcut arms on the verso of the second title-page and bears many woodcut initials and tailpieces throughout => This copy retains Ortuño's engraved frontispiece (often missing) of St. Francis. Binding: A very interesting contemporary Mexican sprinkled calf binding, probably by a "provincial" binder. Covers with a single gilt-roll border having a modest corner device in each corner, that tool reused to form a four-part center design on each cover; same gilt-roll used on spine to accent the slightly raised bands and form spine compartments, one of these compartments with a spine-label and one having the covers' corner device gilt-tooled at its center. Board edges also with a gilt-roll design; all edges green. Highly unusual endpapers of a pattern in blue and red resembling images of strings in string theory: This is the first time we have ever seen this pattern. Binding as above, in good condition; light offsetting from it to early and late leaves. A few small areas of discoloration where candle wax spilled on a page, and a bit of other light toning; p. 135 with "Per Omnia Secula Seculorum" neatly written in bottom margin. Very good.

One of the most useful contemporary authorities on French Louisiana, based on the author's sixteen-year residence there. Jefferson instructed Lewis and Clark to take an edition of the book on their expedition. Le Page du Pratz affords a great deal of useful information on the Natchez and other Mississippi tribes, and his work as a whole has been the basis for many later studies of the period. "...Valuable for showing French claims to southern territory east of the Mississippi and for particulars concerning Indian nations there" - Howes. Of special interest is a short account of Louis de St. Denis' expedition to New Mexico in 1715. "...A curious mixture of history, travel narrative, tall stories, and reminiscences...touch[ing] upon almost every phase of Louisiana in [the author's] time..." - Clark. There is a folding plan of New Orleans and a "Carte de la Louisiane" which shows a large eastward-flowing Missouri. SIEBERT SALE 675 (this copy). HOWES L266, "aa." CLARK I:75. GRAFF 2462. RADER 2219.
