Frankfurt und Leipzig, 1759.. 80 S. Rückenbroschur. Kitchen, Kaspar Hauser: Europe`s Child 195, 14; Bruland, Wilde Kinder in der Frühen Neuzeit, SS. 39-44. - Haarsträubende Geschichte, die von Bruland ob ihrer Authentizität auch stark angezweifelt wird: Im Sommer 1756 besucht der "bekannte Physicus zu Edinburg, Milsintown" die schottischen Insel Barra um naturkundliche Studien dort zu betreiben; er sieht ein wie einen Hund sich bewegendes Wesen, das bald eingefangen wird und sich als "Knabe von 14 bis 15 Jahren“ und "nakend, schwarz und zottigt am Leibe" entpuppt. Der Junge gibt nur tierische Laute von sich und ernährt sich ausschließlich von rohem Fleisch. Bei genauerer Untersuchung zeigt sich, dass der Junge ein entwichener Sklave sein muss; am Hintern hat er ein Brandzeichen und in den Ohren Löcher. Das Gesicht wird als grauenhaft hässlich beschrieben, entstellt von Narben, der Mund sei "einem Löwenrachen ähnlich". Bei dem Versuch ihm durch eine fehlgeschlagene Operation sein Sprachvermögen zurückzugeben, werden die Entstellungen noch schrecklicher. - Der spanische Kaufmann Don Josepho Valverde klärt den "Entdecker" des Wilden Kindes über dessen Herkunft auf. Das Kind wäre von vornehmer Herkunft, sein Vater ehemals "der oberste Sklave bey dem Holländischen Commandanten“ in Curacao, aber als Anführer eines Sklavenaufstandes wäre dieser grausam von den spanischen Herrschern getötet worden. Dessen Frau sei während des Aufstandes mit dem Kind geflohen, auf Barra gelandet, dort bald verstorben und das Knabe sei nun auf der einsamen Insel einsam wie ein wildes Tier … [Click Below for Full Description]

This edition is particularly desirable as it contains more than 100 pages of additional material. The first edition was entitled <i>A collection of scarce and valuable receipts</i> and was published in 1750 (ESTC locates one location in the United States - Schlesinger Library - and three locations outside of the United States). <br />"Since so many books, under the title of COOKERY, have been introduced into the closets of the Fair Sex, an addition to the number may be thought an imposition on their candour: but we beg leave to remove opinions of this kind by assuring our readers, that many of the receipts in the following are originals, not to be met with in any former collection, and most of them written by Ladies of quality, whose principal study has been household oeconomy and elegance of taste." - from the Advertisement. <br />Interestingly, in the early chapter of marketing tables, in addition to getting help on calculating the cost of various pounds of meat, there is a conversion chart from Portugese currency ("Portugal Pieces") to pounds and shillings.

ARDÈNE, Jean Paul de Rome d'.
Traité sur la connoissance et la culture des jacintes. Avignon, Louis Chambeau, 1759. 12mo. With 2 engraved folding plates. Contemporary calf, gold-tooled spine, marbled endpapers, red edges. 156 pp. First edition of a book on hyacinths, printed in 1759, by the French priest and botanist Jean Paul Rome dArdène. "Jean Paul Rome d' Ardène retired, about 1750, from his duties as 'supérieur' of the college at Marseilles to the Château d' Ardène, diocese of Sisteron, where he created a botanical garden and gave himself to the study of flowers" (Hunt). DArdène is famous because of his studies on flowers. In 1746 he had already published a book on ranuncula, titled Traité des renoncules. It went through 3 further editions in French and 1 in German, so it apparently proved popular. After this work, DArdène wrote the present book on hyacinths. Its 12 chapters discuss different aspects of hyacinths, including the etymology of the name, the right conditions for cultivating the flower and its common diseases. The book ends with two engraved folding plates with hyacinths, followed by an explanation of what we can see on those plates. The book was reprinted in French in 1765 and an Italian translation of this hyacinth study was printed in Viterbo, Italy in 1763. After this book, DArdène also wrote books on tulips (1760) and carnations (1762). The present first edition of the Traité sur la connoissance et la culture des jacintes seems to be very rare: the botanical literature mentions it only in the catalogue of the Lindley Library and a note in Hunt.

The 10th edition of the Systema naturae, was the first to introduce binomial nomenclature for animals. In this edition, the insects are divided according to the form of their wings. Among the order of the aptera ("wingless") can be found many creatures which are no longer considered insects, including springtails, spiders, scorpions, crabs, lobsters, centipedes and milipedes.Browned, otherwise in good condition.

[4], XXIV, 846 pp. Fifth edition of a dictionary of medical herbs compiled by the French chemist Nicolas Lemery (1645-1715). Nicolas Lemery (1645-1715), was a French chemist, one of the first to develop theories on acid-base chemistry. At the beginning of his career he lectured on chemistry in Montpellier. He next established a pharmacy in Paris, still continuing his lectures. In 1675 he published the first version of his most successful work, his Course of Chemistry. He lived to see 13 editions and for a century it maintained its reputation as a standard work which was also translated in various languages. He developed especially his theories of the reaction between acids and alkalis. Being a Calvinist, he was obliged to retire to England in 1683. When the Edit of Nantes was abrogated, however, he returned to France, and turning Catholic in 1686, he was able to reopen his shop and resume his lectures. In 1697 he published the first edition of his Pharmacopée universelle and his more or less complementary Traité des drogues simples followed in 1698. These two books were both republished and translated many times. The … [Click Below for Full Description]

This edition is particularly desirable as it contains more than 100 pages of additional material. The first edition was entitled A collection of scarce and valuable receipts and was published in 1750 (ESTC locates one location in the United States – Schlesinger Library – and three locations outside of the United States). "Since so many books, under the title of COOKERY, have been introduced into the closets of the Fair Sex, an addition to the number may be thought an imposition on their candour: but we beg leave to remove opinions of this kind by assuring our readers, that many of the receipts in the following are originals, not to be met with in any former collection, and most of them written by Ladies of quality, whose principal study has been household oeconomy and elegance of taste." – from the Advertisement. Interestingly, in the early chapter of marketing tables, in addition to getting help on calculating the cost of various pounds of meat, there is a conversion chart from Portugese currency ("Portugal Pieces") to pounds and shillings. There was much trade between England and Portugal during the 18th century, and the presence of this chart testifies to that fact.

ARDÈNE, Jean Paul de Rome d'.
Traité sur la connoissance et la culture des jacintes. Avignon, Louis Chambeau, 1759. 12mo. With 2 engraved folding plates. Contemporary calf, gold-tooled spine, marbled endpapers, red edges. 156 pp. First edition of a book on hyacinths, printed in 1759, by the French priest and botanist Jean Paul Rome dArdène. "Jean Paul Rome d' Ardène retired, about 1750, from his duties as 'supérieur' of the college at Marseilles to the Château d' Ardène, diocese of Sisteron, where he created a botanical garden and gave himself to the study of flowers" (Hunt). DArdène is famous because of his studies on flowers. In 1746 he had already published a book on ranuncula, titled Traité des renoncules. It went through 3 further editions in French and 1 in German, so it apparently proved popular. After this work, DArdène wrote the present book on hyacinths. Its 12 chapters discuss different aspects of hyacinths, including the etymology of the name, the right conditions for cultivating the flower and its common diseases. The book ends with two engraved folding plates with hyacinths, followed by an explanation of what we can see on those plates. The book was reprinted in French in 1765 and an Italian translation of this hyacinth study was printed in Viterbo, Italy in 1763. After this book, DArdène also wrote books on tulips (1760) and carnations (1762). The present first edition of the Traité sur la connoissance et la culture des jacintes seems to be very rare: the botanical literature mentions it only in the catalogue of the Lindley Library and a note in Hunt.

[4], 67, [13] pp. First edition of a nomenclator of Linnaean taxonomy, according to the 10th edition of the Systema naturae, by the Swedish entomologist and arachnologist Carl Alexander Clerck (1709-1765), also a good friend of Linnaeus. It lists Linnaeus's classification for plants, each class followed by several flowers of plants, followed by an index; and Linnaeus's classification for insects and shellfish. The 10th edition of the Systema naturae, was the first to introduce binomial nomenclature for animals. In this edition, the insects are divided according to the form of their wings. Among the order of the aptera ("wingless") can be found many creatures which are no longer considered insects, including springtails, spiders, scorpions, crabs, lobsters, centipedes and milipedes.Browned, otherwise in good condition.

A physician, naval engineer, and botanist, Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau (1700-82) gave up on formal university training to take lodgings near the Botanical Gardens, where he pursued his own plan of learning from the director and from other distinguished persons who gathered there. After inheriting his father's estate, he set up a model farm on the property to test various theories and methods of agriculture.

Schröder, Friedrich Ludwig, Schauspieler und Dramaturg (1744-1816).
An den Freimaurer Cornelius Johann Rudolf Ridel (1759-1821), den Wiedererwecker der Loge "Amalia" in Weimar, nach der Besetzung Hamburgs durch Napoleons Truppen: "[...] Die Gewissheit, dem Sclavenjoche zu entgehen, giebt mir den Mut, die Übel welche ich jetzt erdulde, und die Verkümmerung meines Vermögens gelassen zu ertragen. Gott erhalte mir nur meine kränkelnde Frau, dann ist alles gut. Seit dem Einmarsche der Franzos[en] sind alle unsere Logenarbeiten geschlossen, und ich bin von H[amburg] entfernt geblieben. Ich kenne also die schrecklichen Verwüstungen nur Hörensagen. Ob und wie unsere Logen sich wieder erhohlen werden, weiß der Himmel. - Es drängt mich, etwas von Ihnen, und den sächs[ischen] Logen überhaupt zu hören. Über Berlin hab' ich am 4. Januar an [Karl August] Böttiger geschrieben aber keine Antwort bekommen - wenn er nur nicht todt ist! Auch die arme [ die Schauspielerin Karoline Schulze-] Kummerfeld liegt mir am Herzen. Ich wage nicht, ihr Geld zu schicken, und sie wird doch dessen so sehr bedürfen. Sollte mir nicht ein wohlhabender Br[uder] 8 Fr. d'or creditiren, um sie ihr zu geben? [...] Fragen Sie doch Bertuch jun. ob er das Geld für Wielands Medaillen empfangen hat? Wie geht es in Leipzig, Gera, Görlitz pp. Ich hoffe, über das alles etwas von Ihnen zu erfahren. Ich bin in der Trauerzeit nicht ganz müßig gewesen, und habe die Const[itution] des eng und des vertr[auten] B[undes] zustande gebracht. Letztere werden Sie von Hannover bekommen. Erstere soll in Rudolstadt gedruckt werden, aber vorher muß ich wissen, ob das noch mit Sicherheit geschehen kann? Da … [Click Below for Full Description]
