      1759. Nürnberg, verlegt von Adam Wolfgang Winterschmidt, gedruckt von Christian de Launoy, (1759-62) 1763. 4to (240 x 195mm). pp. (14), 204, (4), with 1 handcoloured engraved allegorical frontispiece, 1 engraved portrait, and 100 fine handcoloured engraved plates (bound with): IDEM.

Contemporary half calf, worn. Martin Frobenius Ledermüller (1719-1769) settled down in Nuremberg in 1749, after having been wandering about for many years as a soldier and a secretary, and started his valuable microscopical observations under the protection and direction of the famous Dr. C.J. Trew. The publication of the results, with the finely engraved and coloured plates by the successful Adam Wolfgang Winterschmidt, met with close attention and interest, and for years to come the "Mikroskopieren" was a fashionable pastime for many of the well-to-do classes. The work describes and illustrates a wide range of objects: parts of plants and insects, small shells, plancton, the crystallization of salts in solution etc. In the "Nachlese" 16 plates show various kinds of miscroscopes and optical experiments. The author was the first to use the term 'infusoria'. A small number of leaves with some slight staining or browning. Graesse IV, 139; Brunet III, 919: "Ouvrage tres estime"; Hagen I, 464; Horn-Schenkling 13091-92; Nissen BBI, 1156..

"En francais dans le texte" p. 166, no. 144: "Son premier roman, les >>Memoires et aventures d'un homme de qualite<< qui s'est retire du monde (1728 1731), developpe en sept tomes tout un cycle de voyages, d'experiences, de passions malheureuses que conclut l' >>Histoire du Chevalier Des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut<<. Cette breve histoire d'amour, a bien des egards scandaleuse, publiee anonymement en Hollande et condamnee au feu en France, s'est imposee bientot comme l'un de nos plus purs recits. Elle a connu, du vivant de Prevost, 23 editions et au total, jusqu'a aujourd'hui, 250 editions, ce qui en fait sans doute, avec les Aventures de Telemaque, le roman le plus constamment reedite de notre litterature." Antoine-Francois Prevost d'Exiles lebte von 1697 - 1763. Erstmals von 1728 bis 1731 erschienen, seitdem in vielen Auflagen wieder aufgelegt. Dies ist eine der früheren und selteneren, komplett von uns online in kaum einer Bibliothek nachweisbar, so besitzt z.B. Cambridge zwar die Teile 7 und 8 mit der Manon Lescaut, aber "wants vols 1-6". Anscheinend allein die walisische Nationalbibliothek in Aberystwyth besitzt eine komplette Reihe. Vier violette, geglättete Ganzmaroquinbändchen über vier Bünden mit höchst dekorativer Goldprägung auf Rücken und Deckeln, sowie inarsierten roten größeren und kleineren Lederstücken. Jeweils ein rotes, goldgeprägtes Titelrückenschild, sowie ein weiteres mit den Bandnummern. Kopfgoldschnitt, zweiseitig unbeschnitten. Opulente, die Deckelvergoldung aufgreifende Kanten-, Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung. Marmorierte Vorsätze. Auf der hinteren Innenbordüre "W. Gerlach - Berlin" goldgestempelt. Das Maroquin der Innenbordüren geglättet. Handumstochene Kapitale, goldgeprägte Häubchen und Lesebänder. Im passenden gefütterten und ledergefaßten Pappschuber, dieser etwas beschädigt: eine Kante ist aufgeplatzt. Die Rücken verblichen. Innen sehr gut erhalten, so gut wie nicht gebräunt, nur sehr wenig angestaubt. * Wir empfehlen Ihnen den Erwerb unseres Katalogs über den Berliner Buchbindermeister Walter Gerlach der ca. 150 seiner Meistereinbände, auch diesen, mit zahlreichen Farbabbildungen dokumentiert. * * Wenn Sie Ihre VISA oder EUROCARD/ MASTERCARD zur Zahlung nutzen möchten kontakten Sie uns bitte. *

Second edition of these famous lectures by Henckel, the 'Father of mineral chemistry' (Partington). Johann Friedrich Henckel (1679-1744) was director of mines at Freiberg.

Henckel championed limited empirical research, Stahlian chemistry, and natural religion" (DSB). The text of the present work was edited by Johann Emanuel Stephani.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Glasgow, 10. III. 1759.. 4to. 2 pp. (42 lines). In custom-made cloth box.. Adam Smith's first letter to the 1st Earl of Shelburne, endorsed in ink by the recipient, reporting his pupil's punctual attendance in College, plans for his education including Greek, Latin and philosophy five hours a day, as well as study with Adam Smith two or three hours a day, the comparison of leisure and exercise between Eton and Glasgow, his eating habits and sobriety as effect of resolution, and his pupil's character and qualities being full of spirit and sensibility. - In 1758 Gilbert Elliot, later Lord Minto, recommended Glasgow University rather than Oxford for the education of Thomas Petty-Fitzmaurice, younger son of the 1st Earl of Shelburne (the maternal grandson of the economist William Petty). For two years from 1759, Thomas Petty-Fitzmaurice lived with Adam Smith. Petty-Fitzmaurice (1742-93) had earlier been educated at Eton. After Glasgow he went to St Mary's Hall, Oxford, in 1761, was called to the English Bar in 1768 and became a Member of Parliament in 1762. In 1779 he set up as a linen merchant and established a bleaching factory at Llewenny in Wales, as his Irish estates were unproductive. He was reported to have lived on "the most intimate terms with Johnson, Hawkesworth and Garrick". - The total number of recorded letters written by Adam Smith is surprisingly small - about 200, of which at least 24 are only known from published sources, which leaves about 176 letters surviving, virtually all in public collections. There are only 11 surviving letters of Adam Smith's predating his correspondence with Lord Shelburne. - Provenance: Bowood, home of the Earls of Shelburne. - Mossner, Correspondence of Adam Smith, no. 29.

        Fungorum Agri Ariminensis historia ... quam sub auspiciis plurimum reverendi DD. Francisci Raynaldi Gargani... in hac secunda editione nec aucta nec diminuta publici juris fecit.

      1759. Faventiae, Typis Martinianis, 1759. 4to (280 x 200mm). pp. viii, 80, with engraved vignette on title and 40 engraved plates. Later half calf, spine with gilt lines and lettering, marbled sides. Second edition of this rare and beautifully produced work describing a great variety of fungi growing around Rimini. Antonio Giovanni Battarra (1714-1789) was an Italian clergyman (of Rimini), physician and mycologist. The interesting engraved vignette on the title has the following motto (in Greek) 'We study fungi, we do not eat them'. Ainsworth considers the engravings 'excellent'. In "Zur Geschichte der Mykologie, das XVIII. Jahrhundert" by Lütjeharms pp. 145 to 147 a large comment is given of this publication. Battarra attempted to prove that mushrooms were really plants growing from spores and not just putrefying matter as was generally believed in those days. C.H. Persoon knew of the work of Battarra and even named a new genus of Fungi, Battarra, after him. The 200 figures on the 40 plates are finely engraved and give a very good impression of the mushrooms depicted. The first edition was published in 1755 and the present edition has only some minor alterations. Owner's stamp (Henry Bonnet) on lower margin of title. Stafleu & Cowan 359; Nissen BBI, 95; See also G. Lazzari, Storia della Micologia Italiana pp. 145-155..

        Spartan Lessons; or, The Praise of Valour; in the Verse of Tyrtaeus... inscribed by John Wilkes

      Glasgow: Foulis. 1759. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 1759, First Printing. Hardcover, 8vo., original calf, with two engraved portraits. Introduction on Tyrtaeus in English, followed by text in Greek, &#39;Observations&#39; in English, and text in Latin. Very Good, with some wear to joints. INSCRIBED BY JOHN WILKES (1725-1797), the English radical journalist and politician, on the first blank page: &#39;&#39;To Sir Francis Dashwood, Baronet, Colonel of the Buckinghamshire Regiment, under his auspices rivalling the spartan spirit and discipline, this Small Tribute of Gratitude, for repeated Favours, while under his Command, the constitutional service of the Militia, is presented by John Wilkes, 1760.&#39;&#39; The book is dedicated to the &#39;Officers of the Highland Battalions now in America&#39;&#39; and the remarks on Tyrtaeus are &#39;&#39;Addressed to the Same Gentlemen.&#39;&#39; There remains the possibility that Wilkes is the author/translator of this volume. Wilkes, a rake and a radical, was a supporter of the Americans in the Revolution. Through marriage, he came into an estate and income in Buckinghamshire, where he was appointed High Sheriff in 1754. He was a neighbor and good friend of Dashwood, a fellow rake and libertine, and founder of the Hellfire Club, of which Wilkes was also a member. RARE. Digital images available upon request.

        PHILOSOPHIAE NATURALIS THEORIA REDACTA AD UNICAM LEGEM VIRIUM IN NATURA EXISTENTIUM.

      apud Augustinum Bernardi 1759 In-8 p. (mm. 221x169), p. pergam. coeva (restaur.), tit. ms. al dorso, 2 cc.nn., 10 cc.nn. (?Ad lectorem e Synopsis totius operis?, anteposte), 16 pp.num. (Epistola P. Rogerii Jos. Boscovich ad P. Corolum Scherffer), 322 pp.num., 2 cc.nn., con 4 tavv. f.t., ciasc. con numer. figg. inc. in rame e ripieg. Rara "seconda edizione" di quest?opera fondamentale nella storia del pensiero scientifico, antesignana della teoria atomica moderna (la prima ediz. è del 1758, Vienna). L?autore ?Ruggero Giuseppe Boscovich, astronomo, geodeta, fisico, matematico (Ragusa di Dalmazia 1711 - Milano 1787), gesuita, fu consulente di alta ed apprezzata competenza in svariate questioni tecniche (dalla stabilità della cupola di S. Pietro alla bonifica delle paludi pontine, ecc.). Fra gli altri incarichi, nel 1759 ebbe da Benedetto XIV quello di misurare, col padre Cristoforo Maire, un arco di meridiano fra Roma e Rimini per contribuire sia alla risoluzione del problema della figura della Terra, sia alla rettifica della carta dello Stato Pontificio. Sostenitore di una concezione crepuscolare della materia, è ricordato come uno dei precursori della moderna fisica atomica. Nella matematica il suo nome è particolarmente legato a quattro formule fondamentali di trigonometria sferica ("equazioni degli errori"). Così Diz. Treccani, II, p. 423. Cfr. Enciclopedia Filosofica,I, p. 774: ?Il Boscovich, pur giovandosi delle dottrine di Newton e di Leibniz, sostiene una concezione dell?universo sua propria, per molti aspetti originale. Secondo lui gli elementi ultimi della realtà sono sostanze semplici, punti metafisici inestesi, atomi immateriali, centri di forze di attrazione e di repulsione, i quali si attraggono o respingono a vicenda in modo da conservare distanze specifiche. Naturalmente gli atomi-punti del Boscovich ci ricordano le monadi di Leibniz. Ma una differenza profonda e insuperabile li separa: poichè gli atomi-punti, pur essendo semplici e inestesi, sono privi di ogni attività cosciente e quindi della facoltà della rappresentazione. Perciò essi non possono assolutamente, per nessuno sviluppo progressivo, divenire sostanze spirituali, dotate di pensiero e volonta?..?. Cfr. Diz. Biografico Italiani,XIII, p. 225; ?La "Philosophia naturalis" è considerata il suo "opus maius" e, affidata al P. Karl Scherffer, vide la luce a Vienna (dopo la sua partenza in marzo) nell?agosto del ?58: si tratta di una sintesi del lavoro fisico-matematico svolto in circa 13 annni?. Cfr. Riccardi,I, 53, p. 180: ?In questa importante opera l?A. considera l?attrazione come legge universale di tutte le forze fisiche? - The Honeyman Collection,I,427: ?Such a work, in which Boscovich developed his teory of ?points? which are the first elements of all matter, exerted a fundamental influence on modern mathematical physics?. Con uniformi arross. e qualche fiorit. ma complessivam. un buon esemplare.

        A Plan of Discipline Composed for the Use of the Militia of the County of Norfolk [Parts 1 & 2]

      London: J. Shuckburgh, at the Sun, 1759 - Small quarto (215 × 163 mm). Original blue paper wraps. Somewhat rubbed on the wraps, skilfully rebacked, entirely in character, contents clean and sound, a rather attractive piece in judiciously restored contemporary condition. 49 plates. First edition of the first two parts as issued, a note at the end requests that "Gentlemen are desired not to bind the first and second parts, as a third will be published with all convenient speed." ESTC offers a pagination including the third part, which added 95 pages to the text, but just 3 plates, no date of issue has been ascribed to this section. William Windham was a member of an ancient Norfolk family, in the early 1740s undertaking the Grand Tour with his tutor, the botanist and translator Benjamin Stillingfleet, "in 1741 he visited Switzerland with Richard Pococke; he published an account of his mountaineering adventures in Letter from an English gentleman (1744). He also visited Germany and the Netherlands He supported the campaign for a national militia, assisting Lord Townshend in the formation of the Norfolk militia in 1757 and publishing a widely disseminated Plan of Discipline in 1760" (ODNB). The work was to become one of the principal drill manuals in use during the American Revolution; "Without doubt the most useful and popular such work addressing itself especially to the procedures by which men could best be trained, it contained the best plates yet to have appeared" (Houlding, Fit for Service, p207). The plates were from drawings by Townshend, who had seen military service under Cumberland, with whom he later had a serious falling out, at Culloden and at Laufeld, and was with Wolfe at Quebec in the year of publication. He is probably best known as a caricaturist, and having "transformed caricatura from an innocuous amusement into an offensive weapon in the political feuds of the day" (Donald, Age of Caricature, p14). This copy with the armorial bookplate of Archibald Grant of Monymoske [Monymusk]. Grant was a landowner with an insuperable "bent for questionable financial speculations" which led to his expulsion from the House of Commons. He subsequently dedicated himself to the improvement of his estates, adopting various progressive schemes, the success and emulation of which gained "for him a reputation as an agricultural improver that has largely effaced his early dubious financial practices".

        THE WAY TO THE SABBATH OF REST. OR THE SOUL&#39;S PROGRESS IN THE WORK OF THE NEW-BIRTH...TO WHICH ARE ADDED A DISCOURSE ON MISTAKES CONCERNING RELIGION, ENTHUSIASM, EXPERIENCES &c. BY THOMAS HARTLEY

      Germantown: Sower, 1759.. [8],280pp. [bound with:] Hartley, Thomas: A DISCOURSE ON MISTAKES CONCERNING RELIGION, ENTHUSIASM, EXPERIENCES, &c. Germantown: Sower, 1759. 168pp. Contemporary calf. Calf worn, spine chipped at crown. Early ownership inscription on front fly leaf. Some modest foxing and occasional staining, but internally a good, sound copy. First American printings of both works. Although the second work is called for in the title of the first, it was printed, signed and paginated separately and has a separate Evans entry. The Hartley title incorporates yet another work (though paginated continuously), with its own title-leaf: Wm. Dell&#39;s CHRIST&#39;S SPIRIT, A CHRISTIAN&#39;S STRENGTH... (Germantown: Sower, 1760, pp.73- 168). Although assigned a separate Evans entry, this is a contiguous portion of the Hartley work. EVANS 8309, 8364, 8576. SABIN 8192, 30696, 19437.

        The History of the Marchioness de Pompadour. Part the First. Second Edition. Part the Second. The Second Edition corrected. Part the Third

      London: Printed for S. Hooper [Parts 1, 2, and 3]..., 1759, 1759, 1760. FIRST EDITION OF PART THREE. 3 parts in one volume. 12mo,163 x 93 mms., pp. [5], 6 - 132; [5], 6 - 144; [v], vi - xi [xii blank], 234 [235 - 283 adverts], including half-title for each part. BOUND WITH: The Authentic Memoirs of the Countess de Barre, the French King&#39;s Mistress, Carefully collated frm a Manuscript in the Possession of the Dutchess of Villeroy. By Sir Francis N------. The Second Edition. London: Printed for the Editors, and sold by J. Roson....and G. Reilly..., 1771. 12mo, 163 x 93 mms., pp. [ii], 216. 2 volumes in 1, bound in contemporary lightly mottled calf, gilt borders on covers, spine ornately gilt in compartments to a floral motif, red and olive morocco labels; corners worn, upper rear joint slightly cracked, but a good to very good copy, with the contemporary bookplate of J. Spencer Smith on the front paste-down end-paper. The History of the Marchioness de Pompadour was also published in 1759 in French and German with Hooper&#39;s imprint, though the German edition was printed in Germany and the French probably in Holland. The work is classified as a biography in ESTC. The Work with which it is bound, The Authentic Memoirs of the Countess de Barre, is a novel, and a slightly erotic one at that. Both works are uncommon. ESTC N66689 locates a copy of the 1759 second edition of The History of the Marchioness de Pompadour in Chicago; for a second edition of 1760, ESTC T190245 locates copies in Cambridge and the Sorbonne. A third edition, 1760, of the first part is found in Cambridge and Salem Athenaeum. I could not find a first edition in English of The Authentic Memoirs of the Countess de Barre; ESTC T67755 locates copies of this second edition in the BL and Bodleian only.
