        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.

        Catecismo Mexicano . literalmente [traducido] del Castellano, en el puro y proprio Idioma Mexicano. y le anadio la Doctrina pequena con otras cosas. Imprenta de la Bibliotheca Mexicana

      Imprenta de la Bibliotheca Mexicana, Mexico City 1758 - Small 8vo, pp [ii], [xxx], 170, [i]. This copy has both the frontispiece of San Francisco Xavier by Otuno as the frontispiece, which is often missing, and the arms of the archbishop of Mexico. There are two title pages, one in Spanish, the other in Nahuatl. Not the first edition of Fr. Ripalda's Catecism, but the first of that work translated into Nahuatl or Aztec or the Mexican language, by Fr. Paredes. The work is entirely in Nahuatl, except for Latin parts of the mass and the Spanish title-page. This imprint of the Bibliotheca Mexicana is justly esteemed in the annals of Mexican printing; the first Mexican bibliographer Eguiara y Eguren was its director and the quality of the printing was maintained at a very high level (Medina Imprenta de Mexico, I:clxxiv), as is evidenced in this volume. There is a profusion of cul-de-lampes and elegant initial letters throughout. Fr. Paredes (1703 - 66?), a Jesuit, was extremely proficient in the Mexican or Nahuatl language, as Beristain de Souza tells us, and zealous in his labors among the native Mexicans at the Colegio de San Gregorio, which had been established by the Jesuits for the education specifically of the indigenous people.Beristain also notes that it was the best of the numerous catecisms in that language. It is based on the work of Fr. Ripalda, an Italian Jesuit, but a small "Doctrina" with other material was added by Paredes, all intended for the use of ministers working among this population, but in the introduction he also urges "los indios" to read it as well. Fr. Paredes is best known for his important "Prontuario manual mexicana" (1759). which was a handbook for the instruction of priest missionaries how to teach the Indians in their native language of Nahuatl; in that book, he urges the Native Americans to read and learn from this catecism. The book is in very nice condition: the Spanish title page has been professionally, and quite expertly, restored; ink stamp on verso of plate ("13213 Jun 6 1906'). Otherwise a very nice, clean copy with good margins. The binding is rather spectacular -- full vellum over boards with gilt borders, title in sepia ink on spine, rawhide stitching in the gutters, with the binder's name on front free endpaper: Brugalla 1970. It is preserved in a fleece-lined slipcase of patterned paper over boards. Very nice copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The British Herbal: an history of plants and trees, natives of Britain, cultivated for use, or, raised for beauty

      London: T. Osborne, J. Shipton, J. Hodges, J. Newbery, B. Collins, S. Crowder and H. Woodgate, 1758. Royal folio. (18 1/8 x 11 inches). Letterepress title printed in red and black with engraved hand-coloured vignette by C. Grignion after S. Wale, hand-coloured engraved coat-of-arms of the Duke of Northumberland heading the dedication. Hand-coloured engraved frontispiece by H. Roberts after Wale, 75 engraved plates (71 hand-coloured plates, printed in brown and coloured by hand; 4 plates [nos. 29, 61, 68 & 74] uncoloured and supplied from a smaller copy), by R. Benning, Boyce, Roberts and Smith and others after J. Burgess. (Text pp.195-200, 427-430 and 473-6 also supplied from a smaller copy). Contemporary sprinkled calf gilt, covers with decorative border of a dog-tooth roll, a fillet, and two decorative rolls, the inner incorporating various insects, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, brown morocco label in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt made up from various small tools, comb-marbled endpapers, red-stained edges Provenance: W. Wymondesold (early signature on front blank) Large paper copy with plates printed in brown and hand-coloured at a contemporary date: the whole illustrates approximately 1500 plants. This deluxe issue of The British Herbal was originally issued in weekly numbers "on Royal paper, with the cuts coloured" and published at 3s. 6d. per part according to advertisements in The Public Advertiser of 1756-7. "The genera and species are clearly described in The British herbal , and the work is of importance as being one of the first publications to appear after [Linnaeus'] Species plantarum of 1753, the year internationally accepted as the starting-point for modern botanical nomenclature. A number of generic names used by pre-Linnaean authors, but suppressed by Linnaeus, retain here their first pre-Linnean significance, and were thus restored to botanical nomenclature... The British herbal is also of interest for Hill's criticism of Linnaeus. Although Hill admired and often praised the latter, he did not hesitate to express his opinions when they differed from those of Linnaeus. Many examples of Hill's censures are to be found in The British herbal , and Druce has pointed out that in this work Hill 'criticizes Linnaeus quite fairly and strongly but not with acridity, and shows again and again where that illustrious botanist went wrong'" (Henrey). Henrey writes of Sir John Hill that "Not only was...[he] industrious and energetic, but his writings show him to have been a man of real ability and genius" (vol. II, p. 91). Unfortunately, he was also conceited, eccentric and fond of self-advertisement: traits not conducive to winning friends, and various false starts in his search for wealth and recognition led him to pursue a number of careers: apothecary, practical botanist, actor, gardener (he apparently assisted in the laying out of a botanic garden in Kew, and was gardener at Kensington Palace) and, most productively of all, miscellaneous writer (the list of his works in the Dictionary of National Biography runs to five and a half columns). Copies of this deluxe issue are quite scarce. It is unclear why four plates and seven text leaves are missing from this copy, but seem never to have been bound in; an early owner has supplied them from the regular edition. Blunt and Stearn The Art of Botanical Illustration , pp. 170-171; Bradley III.81; Dunthorne 128; Great Flower Books (1990) p. 100; Henrey II, pp. 92-94 and III, no. 799; Hunt 557; Nissen BBI 881; Pritzel 4063; Stafleu & Cowan 2769.

        A General Map of the Middle British Colonies in America ... Corrected and Improved with the Addition of the Line of Forts on the Back Settlemetns ..

      London: Sold by R. Sayer ... & T. Jefferys .., 1758. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring. Inset map of the Ohio River, tables of distance, numerous printed notes relating to Indian tribes and geography. One of the most important maps of the British colonies done prior to Independence. Lewis Evans' map, titled "A General Map of the Middle British Colonies in America," shows the east coast of North America from Montreal and New England to the northern border of North Carolina, and also includes the Ohio valley in the west. The Evans map appeared in 1755, the same year as John Mitchell's famous map, with Evans drawing from his own original surveys, as well as Fry and Jefferson's 1753 map of Virginia. Evans's map acknowledges French claims to all lands northwest of St. Lawrence Fort, resulting in criticism from New York. Despite the controversy, Evans's work was influential (there were eighteen editions and piracies issued between 1755 and 1814), and was famously used by General Braddock during the French and Indian War. "By 1758 Kitchin's plate seems to have passed into the possession of Thomas Jefferys, the famous map publisher of Charing Cross, for in that year we find the map re-issued with exactly the same title as Kitchin's but with an alteration in the imprint ... Very little difference is to be observed between the issues of 1756 and 1758, but a number of new Forts on the back settlements are added in the latter ... Fort du Quesne, which was marked simply F. du Quesne' in the 1756 plate, is now lettered 'Ft. du Quesne Destroy'd 1758 now called Pittsburg'" (Stevens). This correction to this issue makes this map the earliest map to name Pittsburgh. A rare issue of a desirable map of colonial America. Stevens and Tree 30b; Klinefelter, "Lewis Evans and his Maps" in Transactions of the American Philosophical Society , vol. 61, no. 7 (1971), p. 54; Stevens, Lewis Evans and His Map (London: 1905) III; McCorkle 758.3;.

        Atlas Universel

      Paris: chez les auteurs & Boudet, 1758. Folio. (20 3/4 x 16 1/2 inches). Letterpress 'avertissement' leaf, 33pp. text, 1p. 'table des articles', 5pp. subscribers, 1p. with details of costs and additional maps. Engraved title, 108 double-page engraved maps, all hand-coloured in outline and mounted on guards, each map stencilled on the verso twice with an identifying title. Bound to style in 19th-century calf, the covers elaborately panelled in blind, the large central panel with a diamond-shaped lattice in blind, spine in eight compartments, titled in blind in the second, the others with repeat decoration in blind, marbled endpapers A fine copy of the Robert de Vaugondy's great atlas Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy were descendents of Nicolas Sanson, and their atlas is clearly a continuation of Sanson's great work, Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties de Monde published in 1654 and later enhanced and enlarged by Hubert Jaillot. Of the 108 maps, 12 are of the ancient world and 96 reflect modern geography. The Robert de Vaugondys, following Sanson's example, include maps of the postal routes, roads and canal systems of the European countries but herein they are significantly more accurate. Special attention has been paid to the Far East and to North America where the French explorers made such important strides during the eighteenth century. The maps of the East Indies, China, Japan; the maps of Africa and Egypt; and the maps of North America, Canada, Virginia & Maryland, Colonies Angloises are especially interesting in this atlas because they include information gathered from the latest explorations of the area. In particular, California and Australia are represented in truer form. The finish date of 1758 is given on the basis of the date on the map numbered 24 'Carte du royaume de France'.

        Carte des Possessions Angloises & Françoises du Continent de L'Amérique Septentrionale

      London: Nourse, Vaillant, Millar, Rocque & Sayer, 1758. Copper-engraved map by Thomas Kitchin, with full original colour, with contemporary manuscript additions, lower centerfold strengthened outside of image area, in very good condition. A great French and Indian War map from Palairet's 'Atlas méthodique.' This is Palairet's most important map, a fascinating and artistically virtuous depiction of the political situation as it existed at the beginning of the French and Indian War (1756-63). The map colourfully depicts the British and French claims in North America and the unaligned territories in between. The map also includes the westward heading, parallel lines of each British colonies' right of expansion, as granted by one or another Stuart King, extending to the Pacific; all of which, of course, run through lands claimed by France , and at that time inhabited by Native tribes. On a more tactical level, the map locates French forts from Nova Scotia to the Mississippi and on the Missouri (Fourt Orleans). In other words, it is a map that sets the scene for the war in progress. Despite the French title, Palairet lived in Great Britain and worked for the Royal Family. The map is somewhat partial to Britain, which is shown to possess all of the eastern seaboard north of Spanish Florida up to the south bank of the St. Lawrence River - which in reality lay at the heart of New France. Southern Ontario and the region between the Appalachians and the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers is shown as disputed territory between Britain and France. These regions France considered her own. The map allows French Louisiana, comprising the land west of the Illinois and Mississippi, and the area from the Mississippi Delta to Mobile. As noted below the Explication , this issue of the map features a hand-drawn line in red ink from Bay Vert in Nova Scotia to Lake Ontario, a new 'line of control' that reflects French advances after victories in the first two years of the war. Cutting across Nova Scotia, Maine and New Hampshire, it turns south to include Lake George and Lake Champlain and most of the land ruled by the Iroquois Confederacy. All the French forts in North America have been circled as well in red ink. These revisions, made in the midst of war by one of the publishers, make this state of the map particularly intriguing. This map is based on John Mitchell's immensely influential A Map of the British Colonies in North America , published in 1755. The present map was engraved by Thomas Kitchin, one of London's most esteemed engravers and cartographers. It is adorned by an attractive rococo cartouche. The designation of states of this map will require future bibliographical clarification. The present map is an unrecorded state: dated 1755 and including "Sayer" as one of the publishers, but not including "par Palairet" (as in later states), nevertheless, reflecting events that took place in 1756 and 1757 (victories at Lake Ontario and the taking of Fort William Henry on Lake George). Jean Palairet was born in Montauban, France, but emigrated to England where he became a French tutor to the children of George II. He later wrote several informative books on arithmetic, language, arts and sciences, and geography. The present map is from the second edition of Palairet's greatest work, the Atlas méthodique , a magnificent cartographical demonstration, in which landmasses are shown in various stages of political definition.

Le premier volume comprend un exposé des faits ; il décrit l'évolution de l'embryon du poussin dans l'œuf, jour après jour. "Haller devised a numerical method to demonstrate the rate of growth of the foetus, showing that the rate of growth is relatively rapid in the earlier stages but that the tempo gradually decreases. He calculated the rate of growth of the chick and of the human embryo" (Garrison & Morton). Le second volume, illustré d'une planche sur cuivre, contient la description des expériences "les plus utiles" recueillies par l'auteur, suivies de Réflexions sur le développement et d'un Mémoire sur plusieurs phénomènes de la respiration où sont décrites 116 expériences réalisées sur animaux.

        Recreaciones geographicas, y nuevo compendio de Geographia moderna: Contiene la descripcion natural, politica, y artificiosa del Globo Terraqueo; sesenta y quatro problemas, y ochenta theoremas, para la practica de los mapas, y globos geographicos.

      - Extremely rare 18th Century Spanish treatise on geography and the use of maps and globe, published in Salamanca. This exceedingly rare and fascinating work, printed in Salamanca during the era of La Ilustración (Spanish Enlightenment), is a detailed and comprehensive treatise on global geography and its practical applications, including how to read maps and use globes. The work is divided into four main parts, namely: 1. ‘Introduccion’ (pp. 1-10); 2. La Descripcion Politica de la Terra’ (pp.11-161), which describes the political geography of the world; 3. ‘Descripcion Artificiosa de la Terra’ (pp.162-205), which includes a description of the physical world and how it can be classified; 4.‘Practica de el Globo, y Mapas’ (pp. 206-255), perhaps the most interesting aspect of the work, it presents a fascinating discussion of diverse elements of applied geography, in the form of 64 questions, asked and answered. Of particular interest, the work outlines the best way to use maps and globes. The work is concluded by a gazetteer of the latitude and longitude of various locations around the globe and two illustrated leaves of plates featuring 5 figures of the profile views of the world, an artillery sphere and globes. Importantly, the present example of the book is complete as issued. That being said, two leaves have been purposefully removed from the book (ff. 6 and 7), representing the ‘Approbaccion’ (Approbation). It appears that all surviving examples of the work have the same leaves removed, indicating that this was done in the establishment of the publisher Antonio Villargordo before the work’s release, ensuring the book as amended possesses a complete collation as issued. It is not known why these leaves were removed, but perhaps they featured a politically inconvenient passage or reference that concerned the royal censors during a period when all printing in Spain was highly regulated by both ecclesiastical and civil authorities. One of the examples of the work at the Biblioteca Nacional de España (Shelfmark: GMM/545) can be viewed on line, featuring the same two leaves as having been removed. Cristóbal Machado originally hailed from the Seville region and established himself as a watchmaker in Salamanca. It must be remembered that during the 18th Century watchmakers were imbued with great skills that could cross over into a variety of different disciplines, including instrument making, globe production and printing. During the 1750s, Machado became deeply involved in the academic life of the University of Salamanca and participated in a series of debates of the nature of geography sponsored by the mayor of Salamanca. Consequent to these debates, in 1758, Machado submitted a paper, co-written with Ramón de Guevara, to the Real Academia de la Historia entitled ‘Discursos critico-geográficos’ (Boletín Informes de la Real Academia de la Historia, Nov., 1899, p. 394). This paper spurred Machado to explore a grander study of geography, leading to the production of the present work. Machado attained considerable success as a watchmaker, with his pieces being offered to the Spanish aristocracy in the finest shops in both Madrid and Salamanca. He remained engaged in academic geography and towards the end of his life edited and annotated a Spanish edition of the treatise of Nicolas Bion, the French royal geographer, Usos o problemas de las esferas i glóbos celéstes i terráqueos, para el manéjo de éstos instruméntos (Madrid, 1790). The present work is extremely rare and was issued in only a single edition (printed 1762), erroneous references to a 1761 edition exist. We can find no records of any other examples of the work appearing in dealers’ catalogs or at auction during the last 25 years and we can locate only 3 institutional examples: 2 examples at the Biblioteca Nacional de España (Shelfmarks: 2/49297 and GMM/545) and a single example at the Bibliotecas de la Unversidad de Salamanca (Shelfmark: BG/32843).

        FRENCH AND INDIAN CRUELTY; EXEMPLIFIED IN THE LIFE AND VARIOUS VICISSITUDES OF FORTUNE, OF PETER WILLIAMSON, A DISBANDED SOLDIER. CONTAINING A PARTICULAR ACCOUNT OF THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS AND DRESS OF THE SAVAGES...A SUMMARY OF THE TRANSACTIONS OF THE SEVERAL PROVINCES OF PENNSYLVANIA (INCLUDING PHILADELPHIA), NEW YORK, NEW ENGLAND...FROM THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE WAR IN THOSE PARTS, PARTICULARLY THOSE RELATIVE TO THE INTENDED ATTACK ON CROWN POINT AND NIAGARA, AND AN ACCURATE AND SUCCINCT DETAIL OF THE SIEGE OF OSWEGO

      Glasgow, 1758. Early half calf and marbled boards, black gilt morocco label. Boards rubbed, worn at spine ends. Bookplate on front pastedown, lengthy annotations on front free endpaper. Internally clean. Very good. In a chemise and half blue morocco slipcase. The self-styled "third edition, with considerable improvements," issued the year after the superlatively rare first, of what Vail calls "the most popular of all Indian captivities." Peter Williamson was born in Scotland, but was kidnapped and sold into bondage in Pennsylvania when he was eight years old. His master proved kind and ultimately his benefactor, leaving Williamson enough money to marry and establish himself on a farm near the forks of the Delaware. In 1754 he was captured by Indians, probably Delaware, held captive for three months, and submitted to various tortures and humiliations. Escaping in January 1755, he joined the army and was first sent to Boston, then with the expedition to defend Oswego. When Oswego was captured by the French, he was wounded and taken prisoner. Ultimately he was paroled and sent to England, arriving in November 1756. Williamson's narrative is vivid and detailed, deserving of the interest and editions it evoked. It served as a model for many later narratives, and numerous fictional treatments stole details from it. One of the earliest obtainable editions, the first existing in only a few copies.

Moderate rubbing to extremities, minor gatoring to boards, hinges starting, later owner bookplate of George P.

Shelf label to spine, small inkstamp to verso of title page of The Case. Two scarce titles with an interesting association. * First editions. Born in New Jersey, Ralph was a versatile writer of literary works, histories and political criticism. He began his career in Philadelphia, where he associated with Benjamin Franklin. He traveled with Franklin to London in 1725 and remained there for the rest of his life. An author of some stature, he worked closely with Henry Fielding and was one of the writers satirized in Pope's Dunciad. The Case of Authors is one of his most important and enduring works. It argues that the decline of aristocratic patronage has placed the writer at the mercy of the marketplace, with negative financial, artistic and intellectual consequences. Although it sold poorly, it went on to influence literary criticism and the development of copyright law. It was reissued in 1762. Cited in works by Oliver Goldsmith and Thomas Babington Macaulay, it also influenced the Essay on the Manners and Genius of the Literary Character. It was a popular book that reached its fourth edition in 1828. Its author, the father of the Prime Minister, was a notable literary scholar and essayi

Die Iconologia overo Descrittione Dell’imagini Universali cavate dall’Antichità et da altri luoghi war ein erfolgreiches und folgenreiches Buch.

      [Madrid, 1758. Folio. Dbd. Maltese cross at head of title. Contemporary manuscript inscription in ink and later pencil inscription at top of first page. Accomplished in manuscript (see below), with additional inscription on p.[3]. Additional manuscript inscription on blank verso of final printed page. Extremely light dampstaining in margins, occasional light soiling. A very good copy. A rare royal cedula issued by Ferdinand VI, King of Spain, confirming earlier published laws stating that Viceroys, Presidents, and Audiencias are to ensure that corregidores and justices reside in the principle towns and headquarters of their jurisdictions. The decree also states that the judges are not to be absent from their principle residences except under special circumstances when a license is issued indicating the precise cause for the absence and the length of time the judge will be away. In addition, the judges can not name their own "lieutenants" or assistants, nor can the Viceroys, Presidents, and Audiencias name judges' assistants without royal approval. This copy, accomplished in manuscript at Villaviciosa, Spain, on September 7, 1758, is signed by Juan Manuel Crespo, with the additional inscription "Yo El Rey" and the annotation "Por mandado del Reyno exo. señor." A manuscript inscription on the blank verso of the final printed page, dated Dec. 4, 1759, confirms that the decree has been reviewed by the President and other high-ranking officials in Santiago de Chile. A rare proclamation regarding colonial judges in Spanish dominions throughout the New World. Not in OCLC, Medina (BHA), or Palau.

         Pharmacopoea Hagana, ... tertium instaurata et aucta. The Hague, widow of Frederik Boucquet, 1758. 4to. With an engraved table (two folding leaves) of special symbols used in medical and pharmacological texts, with their meanings. Contemporary, richly gold-tooled mottled calf by the so-called Second Stadholder Bindery in The Hague, each board with the arms of the city of The Hague as centrepiece. The three rolls and the distinctive corner flower on the boards all appear to match ones from what Jan Storm van Leeuwen calls the Second Stadholder Bindery in The Hague, but the impressive crowned and supported arms do not appear there or in Spoelder or Coppens. .

      Daems & Vandewiele, p. 113; STCN (7 copies). Third edition, revised, of the official pharmacopoeia of the municipality of The Hague in the Netherlands, in Latin, in a municipal armorial binding by one of the two "most distinguished" (Storm van Leeuwen) binderies of the 1750s. The index lists more than 600 medicines. In some cases the text simply gives the name of the medicine with a reference to a published source, in others it gives a full recipe with the ingredients and instructions for their preparation. Some copies include an engraved title-page, but that was apparently an option and the present copy appears never to have had one. With occasional minor spots in the paper and the first couple leaves very slightly darkened on the fore-edge, but otherwise in fine condition and with very large margins. The chemicals used to mottle the leather have caused superficial flaking and the spine and hinges are somewhat worn, but the binding is otherwise in good condition and most of the tooling remains clear. An important and beautifully produced pharmacopoeia bound for the municipality, perhaps as a presentation copy for a high official..

      - A Paris chez Durand, Libraire, rue du Foin 1758. Imprimerie de Moreau. In-4 relié plein veau fauve marbré de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs très orné, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, tranches rouges, gardes de papier marbré. Page de titre + XXII + 643 pages + approbation à la date du 27 mars 1758 et privilège au 12 mai 1758. Relié en suivant "CENSURE DE LA FACULTE DE THEOLOGIE DE PARIS CONTRE LE LIVRE QUI A POUR TITRE, DE L'ESPRIT". A Paris chez Jean Baptiste Garnier 1759, 79 pages. Reliure armoriée, non identifiée dont nous faisons un essai de lecture comme suit : Ecartelé au 1 et au 4 à trois fasces ondées, 3 merlettes en chef, au 2 et au 3 à la croix de Toulouse vidée, glands ou pommes de pin entre les branches. Brochant sur le tout un oiseau (loriot) sur un mont de six coupeaux (Famille AURIOL ? dont de nombreuses branches), couronne de Marquis, deux lévriers en supports. La reliure présente un manque de cuir à la coiffe et en queue, le coin inférieur du premier plat est très émoussé, les autres le sont également mais beaucoup moins, le corps de l'ouvrage est en très bon état, papier bien blanc à grandes marges. Une note manuscrite du temps en page de titre et une seule autre en marge plus loin dans le texte. Nous référant à la bibliographie de David Smith sur les écrits d'Helvétius, nous pouvons dire que cet exemplaire est de type E.IB (p.121 et suivantes, Key for identifying editions, le titre comporte bien le premier "p" de approbation juste en dessous du M de la date, la collation est parfaitement identique, les vignettes, dont celle du titre signée Papillon et ornements concordent parfaitement. Nous retrouvons bien les erreurs d'imprimerie relevées par D. Smith et les cahiers marqués d'une étoile (*). Pour mémoire rappelons que l'ouvrage fût censuré par arrest du Conseil du Roi à la date du 10 août 1758, malgré l'approbation et le privilège antérieurs délivrés, semble t'il un peu à la hâte, puis condamné au feu. Malgré les défauts de reliure signalés, bon exemplaire du second tirage augmenté de la censure rédigée en français et en latin. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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

      Napoli, nella Stamperia Simoniana, 1758. In folio (mm. 400x258), bella legatura in p. pergam. coeva, cornice dorata ai piatti, decoraz. e tit. oro su tassello al dorso, tagli rossi, 4 cc.nn. (inclusa l?'antiporta), XXXII,462 pp.num., 1 c.nn. (indice dei rami), illustrato da 25 tavv. inc. in rame (con relativa descriz. a fronte, su foglio separato). 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'antip. (che rappresenta un allegorico "trionfo dell'architettura"), il frontesp. 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 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 pp. 267 e 273 con antico restauro al solo margine; alc. carte con uniforme arross. più o meno lieve, ma certamente un buon esemplare su carta distinta.

        Gebäudeteile eines italienischen Klosters mit skizzenhaft angedeuteten Bäumen und Büschen.

      - Bleistift und Feder in Schwarzbraun, auf Velin mit Wasserzeichen: I. C de R Im-Hof. 23,6:33,7 cm. Provenienz: Vente Salathé, Paris, Stempel nicht bei Lugt. Salathé war Schüler P. Birmanns (1758-1844) in Basel und befreundet mit dessen Sohn S. Birmann (1793-1847). 1815-1821 war er in Italien, vor allem in Rom und Neapel. Im Juni 1819 befand sich der 26jährige Künstler in Olevano, um Landschaftsstudien zu betreiben. Da er sich nach Neapel begeben wollte, hielt er es für angebracht, sich von einer so einflussreichen Persönlichkeit, wie es Baron Carl Friedrich von Rumohr war, zu verabschieden. Dieser wohnte zusammen mit J.A. Ramboux (1790-1866) in der Casa Baldi. Eben bei diesem Abschiednehmen geschah es, dass eine Gruppe von Briganten, angeführt von ihrem Hauptmann Don Nicola, den Baron entführen wollte. Da es ihnen aber nicht gelang des Barons habhaft zu werden (er entfloh ihnen), schleppten sie Salathé und Giuseppe Baldis Stiefsohn als Geisel mit sich fort. Rumohr zahlte das geforderte Lösegeld und Salathé kam frei. 1821-1823 lebte und arbeitete er in Basel, danach in Paris.

        FRENCH AND INDIAN CRUELTY; EXEMPLIFIED IN THE LIFE AND VARIOUS VICISSITUDES OF FORTUNE, OF PETER WILLIAMSON, A DISBANDED SOLDIER. CONTAINING A PARTICULAR ACCOUNT OF THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS AND DRESS OF THE SAVAGES...A SUMMARY OF THE TRANSACTIONS OF THE SEVERAL PROVINCES OF PENNSYLVANIA (INCLUDING PHILADELPHIA), NEW YORK, NEW ENGLAND...FROM THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE WAR IN THOSE PARTS, PARTICULARLY THOSE RELATIVE TO THE INTENDED ATTACK ON CROWN POINT AND NIAGARA, AND AN ACCURATE AND SUCCINCT DETAIL OF THE SIEGE OF OSWEGO

      York, 1758. Later three-quarter calf and marbled boards, expertly rebacked, spine gilt. Armorial bookplate on front pastedown. Some mild foxing, but generally internally quite clean. Very good. Lacks the half title. "The second edition, with corrections and amendments," issued the year after the superlatively rare first edition, of what Vail calls "the most popular of all Indian captivities." Peter Williamson was born in Scotland, but was kidnapped and sold into bondage in Pennsylvania when he was eight years old. His master proved kind and ultimately became his benefactor, leaving Williamson enough money to marry and establish himself on a farm near the forks of the Delaware. In 1754 he was captured by Indians, probably Delawares, held captive for three months, and submitted to various tortures and humiliations. Escaping in January 1755, he joined the army and was sent first to Boston, then with the expedition to defend Oswego. When Oswego was captured by the French, he was wounded and taken prisoner. Ultimately, he was paroled and sent to England, arriving in November 1756. Williamson's narrative is vivid and detailed, deserving of the interest and editions it evoked. It served as a model for many later narratives, and numerous fictional treatments stole details from it. This is the earliest obtainable edition, the first existing in only a few copies.

        De l'Esprit.

      Paris, Durand, 1758. Large 4to. Large-paper copy bound in a beautiful contemporary full calf binding with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. Triple gilt line-borders to boards, all edges of boards gilt and inner gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. A stunning, bright, clean, and fresh copy, with minimal wear and no restorations of any kind. Presentation-inscriptions to front free end-paper and to verso of title-page (see description in note below). Large woodcut title-vignette and many smaller vignettes throughout. (4), XXII, 643, (1) pp. + 40 ff. (i.e. the original, uncorrected leaves: pp. 1-16; 35-38; 59-62; 67-70; 75-78; 139-142; 145-154; 169-176; 187-190; 233-34; 227-230; 459-462; 547-550; 603-606 + 2 extra leaves that were printed incorrectly, namely p. 160 - reset & p. 239 - different vignette).. Extremely rare first edition, first issue, with manuscript dedication-inscription from the author, of this monumental work of the French Enlightenment. This magnum opus of modern thought is considered the founding work of modern Utilitarianism, as it is here that Helvétius articulates the greatest happiness principle ("the greatest happiness for the greatest number") for the first time and becomes the first to define social welfare upon this utilitarian maxim, directly influencing Bentham and Mill.The materialistic philosophy of Helvétius' "De l'Esprit" also directly influenced Karl Marx, who had studied the work while in Paris and called the ideas presented in it "the social basis of communism"."De l'Esprit" arguably constitutes the greatest "succès de scandale" of Western thought and one of the most influential works of Western philosophy.This magnificent copy is stunning in all ways. It contains all the extremely rare condemned and repressed leaves of the first issue (bound in the back), it is printed on large paper, contemporarily bound (presumably under instruction by Helvétius himself) in a stunning full calf gift binding and with two manuscript ex-dono- (presentation-) inscriptions by Helvétius himself. One of them, on the verso of the title-page, is crossed out, but is still legible (reading "donum auctoris 17 avril 1760 Cl. Helvetius"), the second, on the front free end-paper reads "ex dono auctoris 1761" - thus indicating that Helvétius, who had the copy in his possession, to give away when he felt it appropriate, had first intended to give it away - perhaps late in the year - in 1760, and then ended up giving it away in 1761. The work lost its privilege almost immediately, and even though Hélvetius wrote three retractions, it was still condemned and publicly burnt. In spite of this, Helvétius still kept a few copies of the very first issue, with all the original leaves. According to Smith, 15 copies existed, and as Jacques Guérin also notes, these copies were all intended for his close friends and family (we know for instance that Rousseau received one of the copies). These copies, of which the present is one, are thus of the utmost scarcity. Only one other has been on the market within the last 25 years, namely that of Jacques Guérin, which, however, did not have a dedication-inscription from Helvétius.As Tchermerzine describes, the extremely rare copies of the first issue, which are either without the newly formulated leaves or with the original leaves preserved (our copy has them all!) are between 10 and 60 times as valuable as the later issues, depending on condition - these between 4 and 15 copies are the only ones to contain the 80 revolutionary pages that caused the work to be condemned and burnt and sent Helvétius into exile. Tchermerzine does not, however, account for copies with a presentation-inscription like the present. The work caused an immense uproar, when it appeared. It was considered so heretical, atheistic, and immoral that it lost its privilege within a fortnight; 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. Few books in the entire history of printing have been met with such opposition - it was condemned by both the son of Louis XV and the Sorbonne, and the priests succeeded in convincing the court that the doctrines were so dangerous that even though Helvetius wrote three retractions, the book was still publically burned; and when the Encyclopédie of Diderot and d'Alembert was suppressed for the second time, this had much to do with Helvétius' De l'Esprit and the scandal it had caused.This scandalous work, however, gained so much attention that it was almost immediately translated into all European languages, contributing to the immense influence it came to have on all European thought. "The history of Helvetius's De l'esprit (1758), his first major work, is eventful, complicated and paradoxical. No book during the eighteenth century, except perhaps Rousseau's Emile, evoked such an outcry from the religious and civil authorities or such universal public interest. Condemned as atheistic, materialistic, sacrilegious, immoral and subversive, it enjoyed a remarkable succes de scandale. The work lost its privilege within a fortnight of its publication. It was attacked in Church periodicals and in polemical pamphlets, in the literary salons and in popular songs, from bishops' pulpits and from the stage of the Théâtre francais. Though Helvetius retracted his book three times, he was condemned by the Archbishop of Paris (Nov. 1758), the Pope (Jan. 1759), the Parlement of Paris (Feb. 1759), the Sorbonne (Apr. 1759) and by various bishops." (Smith, p. 332)."In "De l'ésprit" (1758), Helvétius follows the Lockean sensationalism of Condillac and pairs it with the claim that human beings are motivated in their actions only by the natural desire to maximize their own pleasure and minimize their pain. "De l'ésprit", though widely read, gives rise to strong negative reactions in the time, both by political and religious authorities (the Sorbonne, the Pope and the Parlement of Paris all condemn the book) and by prominent fellow philosophes, in great part because Helvétius's psychology seems to critics to render moral imperatives and values without basis, despite his best attempts to derive them. Helvétius attempts to ground the moral equality of all human beings by portraying all human beings, whatever their standing in the social hierarchy, whatever their special talents and gifts, as equally products of the nature we share plus the variable influences of education and social environment." (SEP).D. W. Smith, The Publication of Helvetius's De l'esprit, in French Studies, 1968, p. 105.Tschermerzine III:672

        The Fairy Queen

      London: Printed for J. and R. Tonson, 1758 Two volumes. Illustrated with nine engraved plates by Louis du Geurnier. First edition thus. Bound in full contemporary brown calf, with five raised bands to the spines, contrasting red and black title labels lettered in gilt, spine compartments decoratively tooled in gilt, printed on laid paper. About near fine, with some light toning to the spines, minor wear to the extremities, Vol. I with a few minor chips to the spine ends, bright gilt, a few light spots to the endpapers and page edges, otherwise fresh pages, sturdy spines. A beautiful set in a handsome binding. This edition of Spenser's The Fairy Queen is the first published by J. and R. Tonson and attempts to be "more correct than any of the former" by modernizing some outdated vocabulary and providing a glossary for the remaining antiquated terms. The Fairy Queen is an incomplete epic allegorical poem written in honor of Queen Elizabeth I, who is symbolically represented as the title character. Spenser envisioned the work completed in twelve parts, with each section describing a different member of the Faerie Queens' court, each of whom referred to an actual member of Queen Elizabeth's court. Just as Virgil created a history for Rome by connecting it to Ancient Greece in the Aeneid, Spenser lauded the reign of the Tudor Family by linking their ancestry to King Arthur.. Illus. by du Geurnier, Louis. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

A rare proclamation by Ferdinand VI, King of Spain, demanding that earlier laws regarding the appointment of judges in the Spanish Indies be observed. The decree states that disregard of these laws and guidelines in the past has been a great injustice, causing injury to royal interests and to the general population. This proclamation was to be sent to the viceroys and audiencias throughout the Spanish Indies. This copy, accomplished in manuscript at Aranjuez, Spain on August 20, 1758, is signed by Juan Emanuel Crespo, with the inscription "Yo El Rey" and the annotation "Por mandado del Reyno exo. señor." A manuscript inscription on the blank verso of the final printed page, dated December 4, 1759, confirms that the decree had been reviewed by the President, the fiscal, and other high-ranking officials in Santiago de Chile. Not in OCLC, Medina (BHA), or Palau.

        L'Ami des Hommes, ou Traité de la population. Nouvelle édition, augmentée d'une quatrième Partie & des Sommaires.

      S.l. [Avignon]: s.n., 1758 -1760 - Nouvelle édition complète en 6 parties, reliées en 3 volumes in-4; les parties 1 à 3 sont en seconde édition, les parties 4 à 6 en édition originale; Vol. I: v, [iii: Table], 192p., [6p.: Titre, Table], 266p., frontispice de N. Blakey gravé par Fessard, 1758. Vol. II: [vi: Table], 263p., [9p: faux-titre, titre, avis de l'éditeur, table], 278p., 80p. (Avertissement, Questions intéressantes sur la population, l'agriculture et le commerce). Vol. III: Mémoire sur l'agriculture envoyé à la très-louable société d'agriculture de Berne, avec l'extrait des six premiers livres du corps complet d'oeconomie rustique de feu M. Thomas Hale: viii (faux-titre, titre, avertissement), 167p., 118p., 119-279p., [2f. table]. Les faux-titres des deux dernières parties (Réponse à La Voierie et Tableaux Oeconomiques) n'ont pas été reliés dans cet exemplaire. Reliure d'époque en veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné avec pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge et vert, gardes marbrées, tranches rouges. Minime accroc à la coiffe inférieure du second volume, autrement un bel exemplaire très frais. Important ouvrage qui développe la thèse selon laquelle l'agriculture est à l'origine de la richesse des nations. L'accroissement de la population dépend de l'agriculture, mais inversement les progrès de l'agriculture dépendent de la population. La tolérance religieuse, la liberté du commerce et une distribution équitable des richesses sont nécessaires au développement économique. L'ouvrage, qui eut un retentissement international, fut remarqué par Quesnay, qui se rapprocha de Mirabeau, et les deux hommes furent à l'origine de l'école physiocratique. La première édition publiée en 1756 ne comprenait que trois parties. Victor-Riquetti Mirabeau est le père du célèbre orateur Honoré-Gabriel. Il meurt en 1789, deux ans avant son fils. Bel exemplaire de cette édition complète. Tchemerzine IV, 750a. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
