HELVETIUS, Claude Adrien.
Smith, Bibliography H.3; cf. Cioranescu 33651 (other edition); for Helvétius's philosophy: Blom, A Wicked Company, pp. 126-129. Third (or second?) edition of one of the key works of the Radical Enlightenment, published in the same year as the first edition. The author had evoked huge outcry with the publication of De L'esprit (1758), a carefully argued essay on the mind, in which he roundly rejected metaphysics and the idea of Truth, replacing Christian morals by purely utilitarian ethics and stressing the importance of education as the key to moral behaviour. In De l'homme, Helvétius expanded and clarified his views, provoking even Diderot to write a Réfutation. The present edition was most likely printed in France, and, as Smith argues, it was probably this edition that the Paris Parliament condemned on 10 January 1774.Binding slightly rubbed; top of spine slightly worn. Fine copy.

Whitworth, Charles Whitworth, Baron.
Printed at Strawberry-Hill, 1758. First edition and sole Strawberry Hill edition; second and third editions appeared from other publishers in 1761 and 1771. As handsomely printed a work as one would expect of Horace Walpole's Strawberry Hill press, this bears a title-page offering an engraved vignette of Strawberry Hill and presents Walpole's account of the author and his assessment of the Account as an "Advertisement" occupying pp. [iii]-xxiv. The errata appear on the last leaf.=> Limited to 700 copies. Whitworth was perhaps the most effective English ambassador to Russia in the first half of the 18th century. His Account was originally written for the foreign office and remained in manuscript till Walpole printed it. The DNB (on-line) writes of it, "Succinct and perceptive, it was a survey of Petrine Russia which held its readership through to the century's end and beyond." Horace Walpole (1717-97), the 4th earl of Orford, is best remembered as the author of the Gothic novel The Castle of Otranto. Among bibliophiles he is also remembered for his private press, variously known as the Officina Arbutana or the Strawberry Hill Press. Walpole's almost fantastic wealth allowed him the connoisseur's luxury of maintaining this noble enterprise, which he operated in the arena of the rebirth of fine printing in Great Britain that was being carried on by the Foulis brothers, Baskerville, and others. Provenance: 20th-century bookplate of William & Helena Hand.

CELANO Carlo
Nella Stamperia di Gianfrancesco Paci, 1758. Dieci tomi in tre volumi in-16° (15,3 x 9 cm), pp. (12), 281, (7); 214, (2) al primo volume; 346, (2); 174, (6), al secondo volume; 172; 96; 132; 52; 80; 120 al terzo volume, legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titoli in oro impressi al dorso. Tagli decorati a spruzzo. Con un ritratto del Celano, inciso su rame, all'antiporta e tredici tavole, anch'esse incise su rame, fuori testo, più volte ripiegate, tra le quali una veduta di Napoli a volo d'uccello e una veduta di Chiaia e Posillipo con il Vesuvio fumante. Piccolissimo strappo, senza perdite, perfettamente rimarginato da intervento di restauro, nel margine interno delle tavole alla prima giornata e ad una alla seconda. Qualche piccolo, leggero segno d'umido, per il resto esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara edizione. Alla prima giornata, le pagine 1-56 ospitano le "Notizie generali della nostra città di Napoli". Si tratta della terza edizione della famosissima guida di Napoli del Celano. L'opera aveva incontrato un grande successo e già all'epoca sia gli esemplari della princeps, stampata a Napoli nel 1692 da Giacomo Raillard, sia quelli della seconda edizione, uscita nel 1724, sempre a Napoli, dai torchi di Gianfrancesco Paci, erano divenuti assai rari. Il tipografo Paci decise dunque di ripubblicarla, riveduta, corretta, aggiornata e ampliata, sia nel testo che nell'apparato iconografico, avvalendosi, come lui stesso riporta nell'avviso "Al leggitore" al tomo primo, dell'aiuto di "una persona alquanto versata in queste materie": le aggiunte al testo vennero im … [Click Below for Full Description]

This edition of 1758 is much more enlarged and vividly narrates pertinent historical events till the reign of King John V (1689-1750).

1758. [POMBAL, SEBASTIAO JOSE DE CARVALHO (1699-1782). Breve relazione della republica, che i religiosi Gesuiti delle provincie di Portogallo e di Spagna hanno stabilita ne'domini Oltromarini delle due monarchie e della guerra... Lisbona; Madrid: 1758. Part of a larger smear campaign levelled against the Jesuits in the latter part of the 18th century, this small book is a relation of the "Republic" the Jesuits established in the South American regions of Paraguay and Brazil. In actuality this "Republic" was a series of autonomously governed Jesuit missions (much like Juniperro Serra's missions in California) among the Guarani territory of South America in which each mission included a church, basic housing, a school, farms, and light industry. These highly successful ventures endured for over 150 years, and provided protection for the Guarani people from the ruthless slave-traders of the area, particularly the Portuguese. Pombal, who either wrote or sponsored this work, was the Portuguese Prime Minister and was vehemently anti-Jesuit. After the Jesuits were expelled from the territory, under pressure from both the Spanish and Portuguese Crowns, the European powers moved in to destroy these "Reductiones". The Guarani's led a brief armed resistance (the Guarani War, 1756), but ultimately were defeated and forced to flee back into the rainforest. This book appears to mention the war in the title, and is published only a year following it. This work was first published in Portuguese in 1757 in Lisbon. 8vo (17 x 11cm), 48p., 16p., 38p.

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.

A pleasing and fairly typical example of the distinctively Scottish herringbone binding style. The style was established by 1725 and was in decline by the late 1770s. The herringbone consists of a vertical stem placed in the centre of the cover with "ribs" of paired tools placed symmetrically on either side. A variety of tools were used to adorn the space between the centre and the borders. It was customary to bind Bibles in two volumes, as here, with the metrical psalms being added to the second volume. As the psalms were used in the church services, this volume is normally found in a poorer condition than the first volume. It was usual for the endleaves of these books to be of "Dutch gilt" paper. These highly patterned and coloured papers came principally from France, Germany and Italy and were so-called becaus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leipzig, Bernhard Christoph Breitkopf, 1758. 8vo. 2 vols. bound in one. XLVIII, 606, final blank. (2), 744, (52) pp. With 5 folding tables. Contemporary unsophisticated boards. Second, much enlarged edition of Justi's most important economic book, first published in 1755. Justi (1717-71) came up with a broad range of ideas for economic reform: apart from measures supporting population growth and fostering competition (by reducing the power of guilds and corporations), he viewed the increase in private consumption (by abolishing sumptuary laws), the spread of manufactures and companies as well as the growth in external trade (with the help of government-sponsored trade companies and the abolition of prohibitions regarding the import and export of goods) as cornerstones for economic success. These measures were to be accompanied by improvements in mining and agriculture. In his financial writings, the influence of contemporary French authors as well as cameralistic theories developed by Wolff and Pufendorf are evident. - Title stained and with a small repair. Occasional mild foxing. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

On front free endpaper the name of ancontemporary owner "J. von Höpken d: 4. Junii 1765". Anders Johan von Höpken (1712-89) was a Swedish statesman and the leading figure in establishing the Hat-party's anti-Muscovite system. First edition of this landmark work in Mineralogy which set up a new rational system for classifying minerals. Cronstedt's system of classification - published the same year as Linné's famous tenth edition of Systema Naturae - stands as an important landmark in the history of Mineralogy. The system was to a large extent based on the results of chemical tests performed with the blowpipe, and his emphasis on these "internal" characteristics makes him one of the founders of mineral analysis; Bartow has suggested that he might be called "the father of analytical chemistry". By systematically using the blow-pipe analysis, Cronstedt divided the minerals into four groups: earths, salts, bitumen and metals. In 1751 he discovered Nickel."One of his greatest contributions to science was the treatise in which he reformed mineralogy and classified minerals not merely according to their ewxternal properties, such as form, hardness, and color, but also according to their chemical composition. (Weeks, p. 165). "here for the first time, he established the current distinction between simple minerals and rock minerals consisting of a mixture of several minerals" (DSB).Poggendorff I,499. - Neville, 309 (only the second ed.). … [Click Below for Full Description]

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'Espr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tissot, S A D
Lausanne: Marci-Mic. Bousquet & Soc, 1758. Tissot, Samuel Auguste André David (1728-97). Dissertatio de febribus biliosis; seu histori epidemiae biliosae . . . accredit tentamen de morbis ex manusturpratione. 8vo. xiv, 264pp. Lausanne: Marc-Michel Bousquet & Soc., 1758. 204 x 127 mm. 19th-century quarter morocco, marbled boards, vellum corners, light edgewear, 2 worn areas on spine, marbled paper a bit bubbled. Very good copy. First Edition of Tissot's notorious treatise on the dangers of masturbation, which forms the second part of the Dissertatio. According to Tissot, masturbation was responsible for a wide range of physical and psychological maladies including insanity, epilepsy, blindness, memory loss, impotence, vertigo and nymphomania; chronic masturbators could be distinguished by their "moist and clammy hands, stooped shoulders, pale sallow face with heavy, dark circles around the eyes, a 'draggy' gait, and acne" (Engelhardt, p. 6). Tissot's book played an important role in shaping the medical and social perception of masturbation as a debilitating illness, a view that persisted into the 20th century. A separate edition in French, considerably augmented by the author, was published in 1760 under the title L'Onanisme; ou dissertation physique, sur les maladies produites par la masturbation, and the work went through numerous later editions and translations, including one in English published as Onanism; or a Treatise upon the Disorders Produced by Masturbation (1766). Engelhardt, "The disease of masturbation: Values and the concept of disease," in Lindemann, ed., M … [Click Below for Full Description]
