        Instituiçao da Companhia Geral de Pernambuco, e Paraiba.

      Lisbon, Miguel Rodrigues. 1759. folio, 30 + (2)pp., with a large woodcut device on title incorporating the royal arms of King Joseph I, several old worm tracks (neatly repaired), mainly in the margins, part of two letters of title only partly printed, bound, probably in the early 20th century, in vellum-backed boards, the boards themselves covered with what appears to be an 18th century French legal document, spine lettered in red and black, a little worm damage at head of spine. Nonetheless, a good, crisp, copy. First edition. De Moraes, Bibliographia Brasiliana> p.353. Rodrigues, Bibl. Brasiliense> 698 (where he observes that the book is 'rare'). James Ford Bell C.477. Kress 5786. This was an inaugural address to Joseph I, King of Portugal, announcing the establishment by the Pombal government of the Company of Pernambuco and Paraiba, with information on the commerce of Brazil prior to the Company's existence. For the relevance of this company to the modern debates on so-called 'public-private partnerships' see Rodrigues and Sangster's article in Business History,> vol.54, issue 7, 2012. 'Based on archival sources, and considering the social, economic and political context, the study helps to enhance understanding of how the Portuguese enlightened despotic regime developed and connected the empire through a corporatist interface with a private company'. During the middle years of the 18th century five commercial colonial trading companies were established by the Portuguese. The C.G.P.P. was awarded the monopoly on produce from the entire Brazilian north east - traditionally the most developed area in the country because of its sugar industry.'

        Candide, ou l’Optimisme

      Geneva: Gabriel Cramer, 1759. 12mo (161x95 mm). 299, [3 blank] pp. Woodcut ornament to title and tail-pieces, with penultimate leaf N7 (blank) present but final leaf N8 (instructions to the binder) a stub only. Contemporary Italian mottled sheep-backed boards, gilt spine with red morocco label (upper corners worn). Some light foxing and browning, mostly to upper margin, a very good, genuine copy.RARE FIRST EDITION. A nice copy of the true first edition, with the following issue points: the title ornament of spray, fruit and flowers is repeated at pp. 193 and 266; p. 103, line 4, has the misprint 'que ce ce fut' (corrected to 'que ce fut' in later editions); p. 125, line 4, has 'précisément' (corrected to 'précipitamment' in later editions); with Voltaire's revisions on p. 31 eliminating an unnecessary paragraph break, and on p. 41 the rewritten several short sentences on the Lisbon earthquake. This first edition does not preserve the cancelled paragraph on p. 242 critical of German poets (beginning "Candide était affligé").The bibliographical history of this book has been exasperatingly complex and confused, not least because before handing over a final manuscript to Cramer, Voltaire went behind his back and sent a slightly different version of the manuscript to John Nourse, a printer in London, who may well have dispatched copies to other publishers. The result was that within weeks of the first edition of Candide appearing in Geneva, sixteen other editions appeared in Paris, London and Amsterdam. The identification of the present issue as the true editio princeps, already supposed by Bengesco and Gagnebin, was recently confirmed by the cumulative analyses of Ira Wade, Giles Barber, and Stephen Weissman: the Genevan printing must be considered earlier than the other three editions containing 299 pages published in 1759 and than the thirteen others of different size printed in Europe in the same year.Around 1754 Voltaire "fled [from Berlin] to Geneva where he found and bought the ideal refuge, Ferney, four miles from the city. Here, just on French soil, he could enjoy the political liberty of Geneva with the social liberty of France. Here Candide, the most perfect of the light-weight parables which were his especial and peculiar forte, was written. Typically, it was published anonymously, and many times printed and pirated in its early years" (PMM).Drawing on the Lisbon earthquake of 1755 for inspiration, this conte philosophique became an almost instant best-seller with about 20,000 copies selling in the first year, in spite of initial censorship.Barber, 299G; Bengesco, 1434; Morize, 59a; PMM, 204.

        A SERMON PREACHED OCTOBER 25TH. 1759. BEING A DAY OF PUBLIC THANKSGIVING APPOINTED BY AUTHORITY, FOR THE SUCCESS OF THE BRITISH ARMS THIS YEAR; ESPECIALLY IN THE REDUCTION OF QUEBEC, THE CAPITAL OF CANADA.

      Printed by Daniel and John Kneeland, for J. Winter,, Boston: 1759 - 43, [1 blank] pp, lacking the half title and disbound. Else a clean text and Very Good. Eliot traces the aggressions of "the papal yoke" from at least 1588, with the defeat of the Spanish Armada. "This open attempt being unsuccessful, our popish adversaries have ever since been forming plots and conspiracies to overthrow our religion and liberties." Eliot celebrates England's thwarting of their most recent effort, the defeat of Montcalm on the Plain of Abraham outside Quebec City. The French, says Eliot, have been a real nuisance-- "troublesome neighbors." Although "their numbers have been comparatively small, agreeable to the grasping temper that nation has ever discovered, they have been gradually drawing nearer to us, as if they hoped in process of time to drive us into the sea. They have been, for a long course of years, the cause of the wars we have had with the natives, they have supplied the Indians with arms and ammunition, they have filled them with prejudices against the English." He deplores "the most pernicious effects" of French domination of Nova Scotia upon the New England colonies; and lists the French aggressions against England in the New World from 1627 until the present.

        Anfangsgründe der Physiologe des menschlichen Körpers. 1.Bd.: Die Faser die Gefässe der Umlauf des Blutes das Herz.

      Aus dem Lateinischen übersetzt von Johann Samuel Halle. - Berlin, bei Christian Friedrich Voss, 1759, 8, 21 Bl., 970 pp., 4 Bl., 13 Bl. Register, 1 Portr., 2 Kupfertafeln, Pappband der Zeit. Erste Auflage der extrem seltenen, in über 20 Jahren erschienen Deutschen Ausgabe des in sich abgeschlossenen ersten Band der "Elementa physiologiae corporis humani". "Haller sondert Spreu vom Weizen in der Hämatologie!" "Albrecht von Haller (1708-1777), Arzt, Naturforscher und Poet, hat in seinem vielbändigen Werk "Elementa Physiologiae" einen vorzüglichen Überblick über die Entwicklung, die Befunde und Meinungen auf dem Gebiete der Physiologie gegeben. Außerdem bereicherte er fast alle Gebiete durch eigene Untersuchungen und war daher auch fähig, in Band II (1760) über den Stand der gesammten Blutlehre am Ende des zweiten Drittels des 18. Jahrhunderts kritisch zu berichten. Dieses Résumé ist, wenn wir es überblicken, eine stofflich wohlgeordnete Summe von Elementa zum Thema Blut, die wir fast alle oben (Von der Viersäftelehre zur Korpuskeltheorie des Blutes) irgendwann berührt haben. Seit dieser "Summa" des Haller, wußte jeder, wo man stand, was es noch Ungeklärtes gab und wo man Neues finden zu können hoffte. Haller referiert z.B. die Untersuchungen zur Blutmenge, die nach Hoffmann etwa 1/5 des Körpergewichtes betrage davon seien in den Arterien vier, in den Venen neun Teile enthalten. Einen Unterschied zwischen arteriellen und venösen Blut erkannte Haller nicht an, auch keinen Wertunterschied. Das Blut gerinnt spontan, schneller bei Arthritikern, Apolektikern und Rheumatikern. Die Herzpolypen haben nichts mit Krankheit zu tun, sie entstehen, wenn die Bewegung im Blute zur Ruhe kommt. Die Bluttemperatur beträgt normal 94-99 Fahrenheit, im Fieber geht sie bis 109/112. Das spezifische Gewicht von Blut zu Wasser verhält sich wie 1173:1000. Das Serum hat 109 Volumenanteile gegenüber 112 beim Cruor. Robuste Menschen haben relativ mehr Cruor als schwache. Die Existenz der von Malphigi und Leeuwenhoek beschriebenen Globuli wird noch von vielen geleugnet. Haller selbst sah sie nur bei Kaltblütern. Ihre Menge ist verschieden groß, sie sind elastisch. Haller ist gegenüber der Lehre von Zerfall und Neubildung der Globuli aus kleinen Teilchen skeptisch. Im Blut lebender Tiere existieren keine Fäserchen. Sie bilden sich erst bei der Gerinnung oder wenn das Blut in warmes Wasser eingelassen wird. Säuren bringen das Blut zur Koagulation. Alkalien machen das Blut nicht flüssiger. Hitzedestillation liefert allerlei Substanzen wie Wasser, Spiritus sanguinis (Boyle), flüchtiges Salz, zwei Öle, Blutkohle und fixes Salz. Über Boyles Ergebnisse war man also um 1760 nicht sonderlich hinausgelangt. Eisen wurde zuerst von Menghini (1746) im Blute nachgewiesen. Auch Luft solle im Blute enthalten sein. Für Haller ist die Viersäftelehre tot, ebenso die Lehre vom Temperamentum auf der Viersäftebasis. Das Temperament ist eine Sache der Partes firmae und nicht der Säfte. Die roten Teile des Blutes tragen zur Schwere bzw. Dichte des Blutes bei, daher vermag rotes Blut, wenn es in Herz einfließt, die Herzfassern besser zur Kontraktion zu stimulieren. Der rote Teil verläßt die Blutgefäße nicht, das tut nur das Serum welches zur Bildung der Fasern fester Teile nötig ist. Schon mit Haller ...verschiebt sich das Interesse der Physiologie und Pathologie von Säften zur Struktur der Gewebe und Organe." Boroviczény, Schipperges & Seidler: Einführung in die Geschichte der Hämatologie/K.E. Rothschun, Von der Viersäftelehre zur Korpuskeltheorie des Blutes, p.43f.

        [Rasselas] The Prince of Abissinia. A Tale

      London: for R. and J. Dodsley ... and W. Johnston, 1759. First edition, one of 1500 printed by William Strahan. viii, 159; viii, 165 pp. A2r of vol. II in first, uncorrected state; terminal blank M4 present. 1 vols. Small 8vo (5-3/4 x 3-3/4 inches). Olive levant gilt, a.e.g., by Birdsall. George Barr McCutcheon copy with his bookplate.

Small 8vo (5-3/4 x 3-3/4 inches). "Hawkins and Boswell agree that Rasselas was written to help the dying Sarah Johnson and eventually to pay for her funeral ... Johnson told Reynolds he wrote the work in the evenings of a single week, which implies a commencement at least on Monday 15 January, the date on which he learned of his mother's illness and on which he first sent her money" (Fleeman). Johnson's only novel, a moral fable that proved immediately popular and remains a delight; the English analogue of Voltaire's Candide. Here finely bound and with interesting provenance.

      Brunet III, cols. 918-919; Horn & Schenkling 13091 and 3093; Hünersdorff, Coffee, pp. 862-63; Nissen, BBI 1156; Stafleu & Cowan 4288; V.d. Velde, Mikroscoop IV, p. 213. First edition, with the rare final part, of one of the most beautiful works on microscopy issued during the 18th century, containing remarkable coloured plates of magnified insects, shells, plants, and parts of the microscope, and an especially illuminating and drawing apparatus. The first part also includes a description of the coffee plant (pp. 189-194); the plant itself, ''with details of the blossom and fruit is illustrated on plate 97, and in microscopic detail on plate 98'' (Hünersdorff).This "highly estimated work" (Brunet), was published in installments from 1759 onwards, though the complete first part is dated 1762. Before the first series of 100 plates was finished in 1763, the Nachleese , or first continuation, issued in five installments of ten plates each, was started in April 1762. In 1765 a second continuation was published in two installments, containing a 20 pp. description of a microscope on one plate and Winterschmidt's notes of 8 pages on a house-fly on one plate on another (the latter present here from another copy and loosely inserted). In 1776 the very rare third continuation was published posthumously as Letzte Beobachtungen seiner mikroskopischen Ergötzungen, welche ein nicht gemeines Nest mit der kleinsten Art von Schlupfwespen in Flockwolle enthalten (two pages with two hand-coloured plates) and Nebst der Beschreibung und Abbildung eines neuen und vollständigen Universalmikroskops, welches dreyerley Arten von Sonnenmikroskopen, ein Compositum, ein Anatomisches, ein Einfaches, und ein Hand- oder Spaziermikroskop; auch zweyerley Arten von Cameris Obscuris abgiebt. Herausgebracht und verfertigt von Wilhelm Burucker (eight pages with eight hand-coloured plates). This continuation was not incorporated in the later edition of 1804. Apart from the sophistication mentioned, a fine work in a contemporary binding.

En tysk översättning ukom 1760-61. Warmholtz är förstås som vanligt kritisk mot alla fel men måste erkänna att författaren verkligen ?nedlagt mycken möda? och att många av felen kan ursäktas av att han som utlänning inte kan förstå svenska förhållanden. En ny upplaga i mindre format utkom 1767, med ?et och annat fel rättadt? Den opaginerad delen av andra delen innehåller ?Scheme and diary of the war, &c from the king?s entering Germany till the battle of Lützen, composed for the better understanding the three great campaings of 1630, 1631, 1632?, vilket följs av ett appendix med tal och brev av Gustav II Adolf.

Kress 5786. This was an inaugural address to Joseph I, King of Portugal, announcing the establishment by the Pombal government of the Company of Pernambuco and Paraiba, with information on the commerce of Brazil prior to the Company's existence. For the relevance of this company to the modern debates on so-called 'public-private partnerships' see Rodrigues and Sangster's article in Business History,> vol.54, issue 7, 2012. 'Based on archival sources, and considering the social, economic and political context, the study helps to enhance understanding of how the Portuguese enlightened despotic regime developed and connected the empire through a corporatist interface with a private company'. During the middle years of the 18th century five commercial colonial trading companies were established by the Portuguese. The C.G.P.P. was awarded the monopoly on produce from the entire Brazilian north east - traditionally the most developed area in the country because of its sugar industry.'

Contemporary sprinkled calf, spines gilt in compartments with flower and star tools, red and green morocco labels, marbled endpapers, edges sprinkled red. Lightly toned and spotted, one tiny touch of worming to outer margin of a few leaves in vol. 2. Extremities rubbed and a touch worn, rear joints just cracking at head. Bookplate of Henry Eustatius Strickland to front pastedowns of each vol., earlier ownership inscriptions of C. Berry and Cath. Strickland (the latter struck through) to versos of flyleaves. A nice copy of the first edition of this hugely successful and much-reprinted work: the first edition edition appeared in February and a second was required by April; dozens more followed. 'The book was a huge success because Robertson appeared to his readers to move Scotland into the mainstream of polite culture. In the field of historical writing in particular no one had yet achieved such a magisterial style. Moreover, such a style issuing from the margins of Great Britain was testimony to the spread of learning and politeness throughout the kingdom. If the book's style was exciting to its first readers, its content was even more so. Robertson's engagement with polite culture, as well as his conservative stance, emerges clearly in his paradoxical effort to break with the Scottish provincial past and embrace a modern, cosmopolitan present, while at the same time acknowledging the independence and chivalry closely allied to Jacobitism' (ODNB).

Gesandten Sr. Durchl. des Herzogs und Administr. von Hollst. und Bisch. zu Lübeck, bey dem Könige zu Bendern. Mit vielen geheimen Nachrichten zue Erläuterung der Historie und des Characters des schwed. Monarchen.

      - Hamburg und Leipzig, G. E. Grunds Witwe und A. H. Holle, 1759. 8:o. (8),+ 430 s. Titel med graverad vinjett. Enstaka lagerfläckar, sid. (7-8) med ett litet hål med bokstavsförlust. Välbevarat hfrbd från början av 1800-talet med rikt guldornerad rygg med blå och röd titeletikett, blå pärmpapper, gula snitt. Spår av borttaget exlibris. Den rätt ovanliga första tyska översättningen och den första utgåvan överhuvudtaget, då det franska originalet utkom först året därpå. Den charmiga graverade vinjetten föreställer hur Karl XII blir bortburen av turkarna från det brinnande huset i Bender. Fabrice (1683-1750) var hertigens av Holstein-Gottorp minister hos Karl XII i Bender. Hans brevväxling -som här publiceras- dels med administrationen i Holstein-Gottorp och dels med holsteinska ministrarna von Goertz och greve Reventlau, är en viktig källa till historien om Karl XII i Bender. På svenska finns de dels tryckta i Gjörwells ?Swenska Bibliotheket? del 1, dels i ?Förrådet, eller samling af åtskilliga histor. och andra ämnen? som utkom 1760, även den utgiven av Gjörwell. Ett urval publicerades även i bihanget till Mottrayes resor.
