        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, Mexico City 1758 - Small 8vo, pp [ii], [xxx], 170, [i]. Lacking the frontispiece of San Francisco Xavier, as is often the case. Not the first edition of Fr. Ripalda's Catecism, but the first of that work translated into Najuatl or Aztec or the Mexican language. It begins with the title in Aztec, followed by the title in Castillan; 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 Najuatl 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. The book is in very nice shape altogether: the first signature has some light foxing, but the remainder of the text is quite clean, with good margins.It has been attractively rebound in full 17th-18th century style paneled calf, with red morocco spine label. Very nice copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.. [2],104pp. 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. VAIL 526.

        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.. iv,112pp. 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. VAIL 526A. SABIN 104469. AYER 317. HOWES W500, "b."

        Mémoires pour servir à l"histoire générale des finances.

      Londres: Louis Pierre Mortier, à la Belle Image, 1758 - Première édition, 2 volumes in-12; T.I: [ii], xcii, 163p.; T.II: [ii], 316p. Reliure d"époque en veau moucheté, dos lisse orné, gardes marbrés, coupes ornées. Petit manque de cuir au plat inférieur T.II, accroc à la coiffe supérieure du T.I. et mouillure en coin aux pages 149 à 163, autrement en très bon état. Intéressant essai sur l"histoire financière de la France. Le premier volume traite de l"administration des finances depuis les temps anciens, en passant par Rome, les rois carolingiens et le moyen-âge jusqu"à la mort de Louis XIII qui laissa "les finances dans un désordre qui enfanta tous les malheurs de la minorité de son successeur". Le second volume traite de la situation sous Louis XIV et Louis XV. L'un des principaux agents de la diplomatie secrète de Louis XV, le chevalier d'Eon gagna la faveur de l'impératrice Elisabeth de Russie sous l'identité d'une femme, devint sa lectrice et la gagna aux vues de Louis XV. Il fut par la suite exilé en Angleterre sous la pression de ses ennemis à la Cour, jaloux de son influence auprès du roi. La question du sexe du chevalier, qui s"habilla tantôt en homme, tantôt en femme, fut longtemps douteuse, mais un procès-verbal de son autopsie après sa mort à Londres en 1810 assure "avoir trouvé les organes masculins parfaitement conformes".

        Tab XCV (95), Tomus III

      Amsterdam 1758 - Albert Seba (1665-1736). Copperplate engraving with original hand color from Locupletissimi Rerum Naturalium Thesauri, Tomus III. Published in Amsterdam by Waesberg, 1758. Paper size: 19 1/2"x24 3/4" Condition: Very Good. Albert Seba’s magnificent “Thesauri” is a catalogue of his personal natural history collection, an immense conglomeration of specimens of a number of exotic plant and animal life. The son of a Frisian peasant who became rich in the service of the Dutch East India Company, Seba was an apothecary practicing in Amsterdam when he began to collect. His scientific interests and curiosity motivated him to amass this collection on a series of travels to the East and West Indies, and from purchases he made of specimens collected by travelers the world over. Many of the snakes, plants, fish and shells illustrated and described in his “Thesauri” were based on the specimens Seba collected in this “cabinet of curiosities.” In fact, many of the extravagant designs of the engravings were copies of the arrangements of the specimens in the drawers of his cabinet and the walls upon which he hung his collection, which in this way became a sort of predecessor of the modern museum. The collection was a valuable source to European natural historians, many of whom would not have had the opportunity to travel to the far flung destinations where the specimens originated. It is documented, for example, that Carolus Linneas visited the collection when he was in Amsterdam. These fine engravings made Seba’s unparalleled collection accessible to a much wider spectrum of enthusiasts, and modern viewers, too, can appreciate the stylized compositions and near-abstract quality of their fanciful compositions.

        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 .

      Sold by R. Sayer . & T. Jefferys ., London 1758 - 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; Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring. Inset map of the Ohio River, tables of distance, numerous printed notes relating to Indian tribes and geography.
