      J. Nourse 1758, London - Published anonymously. pp. [2, tp], xi, [3], 375, [9, index]. Recased, with the original spine laid down. Binding chipped and worn, but now solid. An interesting volume. "Robert Dossie was a rigorous advocate for the advantages of improved public knowledge. His training as an apothecary brought experience with chemistry to his understanding of the use of sciences to achieve this goal in artisan endeavors." according to Sarah Lowengard. His most famous work, The Handmaid for the Arts, was first published in the same year as this work, and "instructs the reader in multiple techniques of painting and engraving, papermaking, and japanning. As a resource, it was well regarded by eighteenth- and early-nineteenth-century artisans and it continues to be a standard reference for practical techniques of that era."

        L'ami des hommes. ou traite de la population. 6 Bände.

      La Haye, Gibert, 1758-1762.. Mit 6 Tafeln (Tableaux economiques, falsch in Band 4 gebunden). Moderne Pappbände mit schwarzem Lederrückenschild, Buchblöcke unbeschnitten.. Early edition of Victor de Requeti's famous "The Friend of Man, or Treatise on Population". Victor de Requeti, Comte de Mirabeau (1715 - 1789) was a French economist of the Physiocratic school. He was the father of great Honore, Comte de Mirabeau and is, in distinction, often referred to as the elder Mirabeau. In 1756 Mirabeau made his first appearance as a political economist by the publication of his Ami des hommes ou Traite de la population. This work has been often attributed to the influence, and in part even to the pen, of Quesnay, the founder of the economical school of the physiocrats. In 1760 he published his Theorie de l'impot, in which he attacked with all the vehemence of his son the farmers-general of the taxes, who got him imprisoned for eight days at Vincennes, and then exiled to his country estate at Bignon near Nemours. At Bignon the school of the physiocrats was really established, and the marquis in 1765 bought the Journal de l'agriculture, du commerce, et des finances, which became the organ of the school. - Uncut. The 6 plates "Tableau economique" erroneously bound in volume 4 instead of volume 6. - Cf. Kress library no. 5738.

        Livro do vinde, e vede, e do sermam do Dia do Juizo Universal, em que se chama a todos os viventes para virem, e verem humas leves sombras do ultimo dia o mais tremendo, e regoroso do mundo ?.

      Lisbon, Officina de Antonio Vicente da Silva, 1758. - Woodcut headpieces, initial, factotum and vignettes. (12 ll.), 255, (1) pp., (1 l.). 4°, contemporary calf (very worn, spine defective), spine gilt, in a half burgundy morocco slipcase. Some marginal worming without loss, scattered light soiling and stains; overall very good to fine. Contemporary ownership inscription of Fr. João Baptista de Jesus on title-page. ---- FIRST EDITION of this sermon by a Paulista from a well known "bandeirante" family, who was almost a contemporary of the gold and diamond discoveries in Brazil. The sermon on the Day of Judgment, "em estilo patético," includes a description of a dungeon in the fortress of Santos (p. 15) so terrible that prisoners would beg to be immediately condemned to death rather than awaiting sentencing there, and a description of a prison on the Ilha das Cobras (p. 17) where it was said that Jews condemned by the Inquisition were incarcerated. Both are compared to Hell's torments. Ribeiro de Sequeira preached this sermon throughout Portugal and Brazil for 17 years, and was constantly asked by his listeners for copies of it. A second edition appeared in Lisbon, 1763.Born in Paranahyba (São Paulo), the author trained and practiced as a lawyer before becoming a monk of S. Pedro and serving as missionary to the provinces of Portugal and Spain. Finally he returned to Brazil and founded the seminary of Nuestra Senhora da Lapa in the province of São Paulo, where he died in 1776. Borba points out that this is the only sermon of Ribeiro de Sequeira's to survive?his other published works are orations and devotional books?and this sermon "E portanto obra necessária para se poder apreciar seu estilo."---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 789: noting that all the author's works are very rare; @Período colonial pp. 339-40.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM ELIJAH HUNTINGTON TO HIS FATHER, REPORTING ON HIS HEALTH AND OTHER DETAILS FROM CAMP DURING THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR]

      Albany. June 24, 1758.. [1]p., addressed on verso. Folio. Old fold lines. Light soiling and wear, corners torn away, not affecting text. Good. Letter written by Elijah Huntington to his father, Isaac Huntington, from his military encampment at Albany. Elijah Huntington (1734-1814) was a native of Norwich, Connecticut who served several years during the French and Indian War, including on the final campaign to Montreal with General Amherst, where the French capitulated and essentially ended the fighting in North America. He would later live a quiet life as a farmer, though he did also serve in the Connecticut legislature. The present letter was written several weeks before the Battle of Ticonderoga, on July 8, in which Huntington took part as part of a large British, colonial, and allied Indian assault on the celebrated fort, held by the French at the south end of Lake Champlain. Despite the great numerical superiority of the British side, they failed to dislodge the French, and were driven off with heavy loss. This was still in the future as he wrote this letter about incidents of the campaign. He writes (all misspellings are his own): "Honoured father taking this opertunity to let you know that I am in good health and all our company excepting Ebenezer Roth that we left behind not very well. We arived at Albany the 22nd instant and sometime expect to march this after noon but to morrow morning at farthest (this minuit sd. Roth came into the barrack where I am writing and saith he is prity well) the soldiers tary in Albany but litle while Capt. Whitig marchd out the same day we came in, and one company more I know not who, this day one Rhodes- Island company marchd. This day one Rhodes-Island soldier an Indian man was shot thro the sholders by one of their one men by an axidient some thinck he will recover and others not. The small pox [is] in the sity in some houses I hant heard of any dying we dont go in the sity more than needs. I have bin to the store house by the water for provision we ly about half a mile off the sity. I cant tell any news from the front only that we have meet to posts to hurry all along as fast as posible. Sir your obediant son Elijah Huntington. Dr Solomon Huntington desires to be remembred to his father and mother and all enquiring friends and I doe like wise. Solomon wold have wrote him self but he was bisy acooking jest now and it is some thing dificulty for any body to wirte [sic] there is so much noise." Letters from the French and Indian War are quite scarce, and those from ordinary soldiers are exceedingly so.

Part of title in red morocco. Head cap weakened. 3 corners bumped. Pretty good copy. The book was originally written in response to a book by Antoine Court (1695-1760), Letter from a patriot of civil tolerance of Protestants of France and the advantages résulteroient for the kingdom (1756); this is why it is written in the vocative. The author justified by historical and economic study seriously the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. "The author does a great display of" scholarship and science in the field of "political economy. Dissertation offers curious reseArches paper" (Michaud). This defense of intolerance provides very interesting remarks on demographics. Finally, the author provides economical solutions to overcome this demographic threat. Disssertation on the day of St. Bartholomew denies that it was a religious matter, and even deaths, and seeks to mitigate the historical significance. The book aroused ample indignation, including Voltaire. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de tête fragilisée. 3 coins émoussés. Assez bon exemplaire. L'ouvrage fut originellement écrit en réponse à un livre d'Antoine Court (1695-1760), Lettre d'un patriote sur la tolérance civile des protestans de France et sur les avantages qui en résulteroient pour le royaume (1756) ; c'est pourquoi il est écrit au vocatif. L'auteur justifie, au moyen d'une étude historique et économique sérieuse la révocation de l'édit de Nantes. "L'auteur fait un grand étalage d"érudition et de science en matière d"économie politique. La Dissertation offre des recherches curieuses" (Michaud). Cette défense de l'intolérance fournit de très intéressantes remarques sur la démographie. L'auteur enfin donne des solutions économiques afin de sortir de cette menace démographique. La disssertation sur la journée de la Saint-Barthélémy nie que ce fut une affaire religieuse, et même le nombre de morts, et cherche à en atténuer l'importance historique. Le livre souleva d'amples indignations, notamment celles de Voltaire.

        Philosophiae naturalis theoria redacta ad unicam legem virium in natura existentium.

      Vienna, Officina Libraria Kaliwodiana, 1758 - 4to (219 x 170 mm), pp [xxviii] 322 [4] 16, with four folding engraved plates; bifolia c and d transposed, a fine copy in contemporary calf-backed marbled boards, spine and joints worn and cracked but sound. £75,000First edition of one of the rarest great books in the history of science. Boscovich's masterpiece, A Theory of Natural Philosophy Reduced to a single Law of the Actions Existing in Nature, is one of the fundamental books in the history of scientific thought and is 'the birth of atomic physics' (Printing and the Mind of Man). Boscovich's atomic theory arose from an attempt to build a comprehensive physics based on the ideas of Newton and Leibniz, and to go beyond both to produce new results. The success of the Theoria was immediate and widespread. It was highly influential on British physicists: Priestley, Robinson, Faraday, Clerk Maxwell, Lord Kelvin, J.J. Thompson, and Niels Bohr. All acknowledged its importance. in 1898 Lord Kelvin said 'My present assumption is Boscovichianism pure and simple.' 'The Theoria was not only the first general mathematical theory of atomism. but more specifically it was the first scientific theory: to treat all the ultimate constituents of matter as identical; to employ finite numbers of point particles; to eliminate Newtonian mass as a primary quantity, substituting a kinematic basis; to postulate a relational basis for the mathematical treatment of inertia and of all space and time observations; to propose to derive all physical effects from a single law; to eliminate the scale-free similarity property of the Newtonian law, introducing natural lengths into continuous laws so as to determine unique equilibrium positions and other scale-fixed properties; to employ a power series to represent an observable.'An examination of this list shows that where Boscovich was original he anticipated the aims, and many of the features, of twentieth-century atomic physics. Nor is this all that stands to the credit of the Theoria. 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.'

        Avon: A Poem in Three Parts

      4to. Birmingham: John Baskerville, 1758. 4to, [3], 78 pp. Original wrappers bound into quarter red calf, a bit worn, occasional spotting or discoloration. Front pastedown with bookplates of Ralph Straus and Robert Hartshorne. First edition -- K2 is signed 2K and the ?O? of Poems in title is inverted as usual; ?Cambden? is thus misspelt on p. 32, and ?had? is omitted from the last line on p. 51. One of Baskerville?s scarcest works, issued 1 June 1758 at 3s, approximately one year after his famous Virgil. ?Though Avon garnered generally positive reviews from contemporary critics and portions of it were reprinted in the Gentleman?s Magazine and in Dodsley?s Annual Register that year, it gained equal, or perhaps greater, attention as an early specimen of John Baskerville?s typesetting. ?Avon is nothing but a Type?, Thomas Gray remarked (letter to William Mason, 11 Aug 1758)? (DNB). Ralph Straus was the primary contributor to the 1907 Cambridge University Press publication John Baskerville: A Memoir. Though listed as a co-author of this valuable reference (a good supplement to Pardoe and Gaskell), he ?brought to the subject an intimate technical knowledge of the Baskerville types, enabling him to deduce new and interesting theories as to the extent to which these famous types were used; and by his independent researches he made good his claim to a share in the production of the ?life?...[with] the lion?s share of the task falling upon [Straus]? (written by his co-author in the preface to the 1907 edition). Gaskell 3.

        Dictionnaire Historiques ou Memoires Critiques et Litteraires, Concernant La Vie et Les Ouvrages de Divers Personnage Distingues, Particulierement Dans La Republique des Lettres. 2 Volumes Bound as One

      [The Hague] a la Haye: Pierre de Hondt, 1758-1759. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. This remarkable "Historical Dictionary," offers critical and literary memoirs about the life and works of various distinguished persons, particularly in the republic of letters, This book was done as a complementary work to the famous early 18th century dictionary of Pierre Bayle. Prosper Marchand (1678-1756) was a Huguenot refugee who became a bookseller, bibliographer, and publisher in the Netherlands. Marchand died before the manuscript was complete, but he had commissioned his friend and executor, Jean Nicolas Sebastien Allamand, to review and publish it. Allamand spent four years putting Marchand's notes in order. They were mostly written on confused and scattered scraps of paper. In his introduction, Allamand describes all the pains he had to take to restore these notes and to supplement the omissions of Marchand. The result is this monumental bound folio with two painstakingly printed volumes on on seemingly everyone and everything literary. Printed in double columns with numerous shoulder footnotes on most pages. At the end of Volume II are an alphabetical list of articles, a table of subjects, and a catalog of books published by Pierre de Hondt. Bound in three quarter brown leather with decorated brown paper boards. Six raised bands to spine with brown leather title label in second compartment. Chipping and small tears to leather as well as to paper covers. Interior pages show light aging but are otherwise clean and bright. Offsetting on free endpapers from leather borders on pastedowns.

Redrafting by the author do not change anything, the book was originally dedicated to the king, who dismissed the dedication. The authorities were particularly indignant social and political ideas contained in the work. Encyclopaedists did were not mistaken for whom the book was the bible of Rationalism (though his point was rejected by Diderot). Helvetius not intended as research into the human mind as an object of knowledge, but from a materialist assumption, since it asserts that all human faculties can be reduced to physical sensations. Helvetius (1715-1771) was General Farmer, becoming rich, he knew how to be very generous and a patron of philosophers and writers. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

      Augsburg: Johann Georg Hertel, um 1758 - 1760.. (Historiae et Allegoriae) Darstellung im Plattenrand 19,5 x 12,5 cm, Blattgröße 24 x 19 cm,. "Cesare Ripa (* um 1555 in Perugia; 1622 in Rom) war ein italienischer Koch, Schriftsteller und Gelehrter. Ripas Werk, die Iconologia von 1593 ist ein ikonografisches Wörterbuch, das zu einer unerschöpflichen Quelle für Kunst und Literatur des Barock geworden ist. Die Iconologia overo Descrittione Dell'imagini Universali cavate dall'Antichita et da altri luoghi war ein erfolgreiches und folgenreiches Buch. Das Buch, das auf ägyptischen, griechischen und römischen Bild- und Schriftquellen basiert, wurde von Rhetorikern, bildenden Künstlern und Dichtern verwendet, um abstrakten Begriffen, wie Tugenden und Laster, Affekte und Leidenschaften, Künsten und Wissenschaften Gestalt zu geben. Das Buch war, gemäß einem in der Renaissance üblichen Verfahren, nicht systematisch, sondern alphabetisch angeordnet. Jedem Begriff entspricht in dem Buch ein Bild mit einer Beschreibung der allegorischen Figur oder Personifikation, in der Art und Farbe der Kleidung einer Figur und ihre unterschiedlichen Attribute vorgegeben werden, einschließlich Belegen aus der Bibel oder der antiken Literatur. Erst 1603 erschien eine illustrierte Fassung mit 151 Bildern. Zahlreiche Übersetzungen ins Italienische, Französische (1644, 1677, 1681 und 1698), ins Niederländische (zwischen 1644 und 1750), Deutsche (1670, 1704,[2] und 1758-1760) und Englische (1709, 1779, 1785) belegen die große Nachfrage.

        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: very rare. Wellcome III, p.361. ESTC & OCLC together locate about 11 libraries with copies (6 in Britain: 4 in US including Nat.Lib. Medicine: 1 in Sweden). 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.

        Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained, and Samson Agonistes

      London: John Baskerville, 1758., 1758. First Baskerville edition. 2 vols. Octavo. Bound in full wine calf, with blind ruling to boards, raised bands, gilt titles and blind decoration to spine; all edges dyed yellow, blind stamped dentelles. Bindings are rubbed, with a few small chips to top and tail of spine, slight wear to corners. Internally clean with the exception of tanned endpapers and very minor spotting to prelims. Baskerville's preface states his desire to print only 'books of Consequence, of intrinsic merit, or established reputation', and surely this collection of Milton's most important works meets every one of those criteria. The extraordinary Christian epic poem, which retells the opening chapters of Genesis, is one of the greatest works of English literature. Baskerville's edition is based on the text of Thomas Newton - with a mistake on p.75 that reads "God is light" which marks this out as a copy of the first edition edited by Baskerville.

        Essai sur l'amelioration des terres.

      Paris: chez Durand, 1758 - Duodecimo (161 x 92 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, spine decorated gilt in compartments with a thistle device, yellow spine label, marbled endpapers, edges stained red. Short crack to joints and slight wear to spine ends; a crisp, clean copy. Wood-engraved title decoration, engraved headpiece to Dedication, 3 folding engraved plates of fields. Ownership inscription of C. Macdonald Lockhart to the free endpaper. First edition, scarce, of a highly influential book: "Its influence was to be very great and Pattullo was to be quoted throughout the rest of the century as one of the famous agriculturists of his time, and the founder of a definite agricultural system (.) the Essai is a handbook of English farming for the use of the French" (Andre J. Bourde, The Influence of England on the French Agronomes 1750-1789, Cambridge 1953, p. 78). It is also one of the earliest works to publicise the views of the French Enlightenment economist François Quesnay (1694-1774). who had published two articles on agriculture in the Encyclopedie: "Fermiers" (1756) and "Grains" (1757). Pattullo, a Scot, has been described as Quesnay's "first foreign disciple". Henry Pattullo, possibly a Jacobite exile who fled to France following the '45, is an obscure but important figure in 18th century writing on agriculture. "[His] Essay on the Improvement of Land (.) was the first work to describe properly the new methods of crop rotation practised in England and Flanders" (Milward & Saul, The Economic Development of Continental Europe 1780-1870, p. 80). A lovely copy of an important work. Einaudi 4321; Goldsmiths' 9334; Higgs 1656; Kress 5745. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Practische Philosophie für alle Stände. 2 Teile in 1 Bd.

      Leipzig, J.B. Ackermann, 1758.. 8vo. 8 Bl., 1034 S., 31 Bl. Pergamentband der Zeit mit vergoldetem Rückenschild.. Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe. - Basedows erstes bedeutendes Werk, in dem er seine Ansichten über Religion, Philosophie und allgemeine Bildung niederlegte. Dieses Werk enthält schon den Kern seiner späteren Entwürfe zur Verbesserung des Schulunterrichts. (ADB 2, 115). Basedow war mit seinem Erziehungsprogramm und seinen schulpraktischen Forderungen, die er seit seiner "Praktischen Philosophie" und seiner "Philatelie" in immer neuen Entwürfen einer europäischen Öffentlichkeit vortrug, nicht nur Wortführer, sondern der Vorkämpfer der deutschen Aufklärungspädagogik geworden (LdKJ I, 110). - Etwas berieben und fleckig. Durchgehend schwach wasserrandig. Gestochenes Exlibris im Vorderdeckel, Titel mit altem Stempel.
