        Vorläufige Beobachtungen der Schwämme um Regensburg angestellet und mit vier Kupfertafeln ausgemahlter Abbildungen erläutert.

      Regensburg, gedruckt mit Weissischen Schriften, 1759. 4:o. (8),59 s. & 4 utvikbara handkolorerade grav. plr. Med en grav. titelvinjett. Rödbrunt pappbd med mörkt blå titeletikett (Johanna Röjgård). Gamla marmorerade snitt. Bra ex.. Planscherna signerade av Susanna Sophia Berzin och F. Schauer. Jacob Jacob Christian Schäffer (1718-90) var tysk präst, botaniker, mykolog, entomolog, ornitolog och uppfinnare. Parallellt med sin prästerliga bana utgav han 1759 "Erlechterte Arzney-Kräuterwissenschaft", en botanisk handbok för läkare och farmaceuter om medicinska effekter av växter. 1762-64 skrev han fyra rikt illustrerade volymer inom mykologi, "Natürlich ausgemahlten Abbildungen baierischer und pfälzischer Schwämme, welche um Regensburg wachsen". 1774 utkom "Elementa Ornithologica", i vilken han framlade ett system för klassificering av fåglar baserade på benens struktur. Detta arbete följdes upp med "Museum Ornithologicum" 1789, i vilket han beskriver arter i sina egna samlingar. Inom entomologien publicerade Schäffer 1779 ett arbete som omfattade tre volymer, "Icones insectorum circa ratisbonam indigenorum coloribus naturam referentibus expressae", vilket innehöll 280 handmålade planscher föreställande omkring 3000 insekter. En introduktion till entomologien, "Elementa entomologica", följde 1789. Schäffer hade även en omfattande kuriosakabinett, "Schaefferianum Museum", vilken var öppen för allmänheten och som Goethe besökte under sin resa till Italien. Som medlem av talrika akademier korresponderade han med många naturforskare, inklusive Carl von Linné. Naturforskning var inte det enda område som intresserade honom. Han utförde experiment med elektricitet, färger och optik och uppfann även en tidig tvättmaskin, vilket han presenterade 1767 i "Die bequeme und höchstvortheilhafte Waschmaschine". Andra uppfinningar var bl.a. en såg och en ny masugn. Pappersframställning var ochså något som han intresserade sig för under 1765-71, vilket resulterade i "Versuche und Muster, ohne alle Lumpen oder doch put einem geringen Zusatze derselben, Papier zu machen". Detta arbete visade att sådant som olika växter, t.ex. poppel, mossa och humle kunde användas vid papperstillverkning

        Observations On the Inslaving, Importing and Purchasing of Negroes? The Uncertainty of a Death Bed Repentance (with two other titles)

      Reprinted by Christopher Saur 8vo, original bull sheep with four raised boards, iii-viii, 280,168, 16pp. Benezet title is bound at the end (16 pp.). Binding very worn and rubbed, hinges weak, binding slightly warped, missing endpapers, pages 53-56 are torn, page 5 and 6 is torn in half in Harley?s A Discourse on Mistakes Concerning Religion, last page chipped and folded a bit, but with no material impact on text, internally somewhat, soiled, foxed and aged. Anthony Benezet (1713-1784) was born into a French Huguenot family that moved to London when he was two years old. At seventeen, his family moved to Philadelphia, and he became a Quaker. He became a teacher and established the first public school for girls in America, and along the way he managed to teach slave children from his home. In 1770, with the help of the Quakers, he set up the Negro School at Philadelphia, which he taught at until his death. The current work has the distinction of being one of the earliest and most important anti-slavery efforts printed in America before the Revolutionary War. Also bound with this track is Benezet?s The Uncertainty of A Death Bed Repentance, Thomas Bromley?s The Way to the Sabbath of Rest, and Thomas Hartley?s A Discourse of Mistakes Concerning Religion. It appears the tracts were printed by Christopher Sauer in Germantown.

        Le veritable mentor, ou L'education de la noblesse

      A Liege: del l'Imprimerie de Bassompierre...A Bruxelles: chez Vanden Berghen, 1759., First edition of Caraccioli's sixth book. On the education of princes, this was one of the author's most popular titles, and a "second edition" was published the same year. This first edition is elusive: OCLC lists five copies, three in North America. Contemporary calf, rebacked to style, marbed edges and endpapers. Twelvemo. Front board darkened near fore-edge, bookplate removed. Old ink signature on title-page, old French library rubberstamp. A good, clean copy. The Marquis de Caraccioli (1723-1803) was born and wrote in Paris, though he studied in Mans and travelled in Italy, Germany and Poland. He was a prolific writer of poetry, fiction, history, and biography. Frequent topics were education and manners. He is the author of Les derniers adieux de la marŽchale de¥¥¥ ˆ ses enfans (1759), translated into English as Advice from a Lady of Quality to her Children. Book collectors know him best for the color-printed book, Le livre de quatre couleurs (1757), and its successor, Le livre ˆ la mode (1759).

      Samtal om flere werldar. På swenskan öfwersatte af J. W. Nya uplagan tilökt med et 6:te samtal i samma ämne. Sthlm, P. J. Nyströms tryckeri, (1759). 8:o. (16),128 s. Häftad i samtida ngt nött och blekt marmorerat pappomslag. Ryggen trasig upp- och nedtill. Genomgående lätt bruntonad med spridda lager- och småfläckar. Enstaka fuktränder, se t.ex. s. 39 och 128. Från Trolleholm.. Översatt av Jeremias Wallen. Första svenska översättningen av Fontenelles berömda verk "Entretiens sur la pluralité des mondes" från 1686. I en serie samtal förklaras det kopernikanska världssystemet på ett lättillgängligt och underhållande sätt. Flera av Fontenelles verk präglades av samma folkbildningsanda och han ses därför som en föregångare till den franska upplysningsrörelsen. Det nya sjätte samtalet som omnämns i den svenska titeln infogades redan i andra upplagan 1687

      Sthlm, Kongl. tryckeriet, 1759. 4:o. Grav. titelblad,(4),52 s. & 3 utvikbara grav. plr. Ganska nött samtida hfrbd med upphöjda bind, ljusbrun senare titeletikett och stänkta snitt. Bakre yttre falsen sprucken upptill och årtalsuppgift präglad nederst på ryggen i senare tid. Pärmpappret hårt slitet. Inlagan genomgående lager-, bläck- och småfläckig. Med Gustaf Victor Nordencreutz namnteckning daterad 1833 och hans son Gösta Nordencreutz exlibris.. De fina planscherna graverade av Carl Bergquist, titelbladet efter en förlaga av Olof Årre. Det dekorativa titelbladet avbildar bl.a. ett brinnande Södermalm. Den tredje planschen föreställer Peterskyrkan och delar av Vatikanen. Utgiven med anledning av flera förödande bränder i Stockholm. Reinhold Angerstein (1718-60) var verksam vid Bergskollegium och gjorde vidsträckta utrikes studieresor, där han bl.a besökte Italien. Han förde under resorna omfattande anteckningar med ekonomiska och tekniska uppgifter, ur vilka detta verk är det enda som utkom i samtiden. Gustaf Victor Nordenreutz (1821-1906) var, som också framgår av den spretiga namnteckningen, bara barnet när han skrev i boken. Sannolikt tillhörde arbetet fadern Jakob Magnus Nordencreutz (1763-1834) och kanske tidigare farfadern Fredrik Jakob (1723-93), vilka båda var framstående fortifikationsofficerare

      maj:ts skeps-lieutenant. Förbättrad och fjerde gången uplagd. Västerås, J. L. Horrn, 1759. 8:o. (8),158,(2) s. Samtida ngt nött hfrbd med upphöjda bind, sparsamt guldornerad rygg, ljusbrun titeletikett och stänkta snitt. Ryggskinnet skadat upptill och ryggen torr och flammig. Titeletiketten med sprickor.

Halldins respektive Mauritz Wickströms namnteckningar samt Anders Edgrens exlibris och en samtida anteckning på insidan av främre pärmen att boken tillhört Norrby bibliotek.. Med förord av Lars Salvius. Nils Matson Kiöping (ca 1621-80) var prostson och växte upp i Köping i Västmanland. Han förmodas ha varit syssling till både Per Brahe d.y. och dennes första hustru och hade med andra ord mäktiga förbindelser. Åren 1647-56 tillbringade han till sjöss i bl.a. holländska ostindiska kompaniets tjänst innan han återvände till Sverige. Arne Forssell har skrivit om Kiöping att dennes "subjektiva framställningssätt förmodligen bidragit till hans berättelses gångbarhet bland allmänheten. Hans skildringar äro skrivna i för den tiden ovanligt korta och överskådliga satser, ej sällan kryddade med färgrika iakttagelser och drastiska vändningar". Första upplagan utkom 1667 och andra 1674, båda trycktes av Kankel på Visingsö. Tredje upplagan utgavs 1743 av Lars Salvius, som gjorde en genomgripande bearbetning av texten, som bibehållits även i den fjärde upplagan. Biblioteket på Norrby gård på Munsö i Mälaren byggdes upp av regeringsrådet Gustaf Halldin, adlad Hallenstjerna (1741-1813). Denne är väl mest känd för sina erotiska memoarer. Efter att ha bytt ägare några gånger under 1800-talet såldes boksamlingen på auktion 1893

French & Indian War magazine maps By the middle of the eighteenth century, a number of monthly magazines were being published in London. These magazines informed their readers on a variety of subjects, including natural history, topography, sports, and of course current affairs. The British public was fascinated by the events of the war with France and so there was great demand for up-to-date information, especially related to the American theater of battle. The British magazines met this demand with articles and illustrations which they rushed into print as soon as the details became available to them. The following maps appeared in contemporary magazines published in London between 1758 and 1761. These are among the most current illustrations of the events of the French & Indian War which are available to us today. * "A Map of the Island of Orleans with the Environs of Quebec." From Gentlemen's Magazine, October 1759. 4 1/4 x 7 1/4. Engraving. Very good condition. Another map of Quebec, this one issued within a month of the surrender of Quebec. It shows city and its environs including the Island of Orleans. As news of the great British triumph arrived in London, this map would have been studied with great interest by the readers of Gentleman's Magazine.

        TO THE HONOURABLE THOMAS PENN AND RICHARD PENN ESQRS. TRUE & ABSOLUTE PROPRIETARIES & GOVERNOURS OF THE PROVINCE OF PENNSYLVANIA & COUNTIES OF NEW-CASTLE KENT & SUSSEX ON DELAWARE THIS MAP OF THE IMPROVED PART OF THE PROVINCE OF PENNSYLVANIA. IS HUMBLY DEDICATED BY NICHOLAS SCULL

      Philadelphia. 1759.. Engraved map on six sheets, joined as three. Sheet size: 3 sheets, each approximately 31 x 21 1/2 inches. Excellent condition, with three short repaired tears, very minor age toning at the sheet edges, overall in remarkable unsophisticated condition. Provenance: Laird U. Park (Sotheby's New York, Nov. 29, 2000, lot 322). The first map of Pennsylvania to be published in America. Scull (1687-1761) was born in Philadelphia and is thought to have been apprenticed at a young age to William Penn's surveyor, Thomas Holme. In 1719 he became deputy surveyor of Philadelphia County, eventually ascending to the surveyor generalship of Pennsylvania in 1748. An original member of Benjamin Franklins Junto, Scull was intimately involved with Indian relations of the period, having travelled amongst the tribes surveying the western counties. Siding with the Proprietors in his recollection of the Walking Purchase, at which he was present, no doubt held him in good standing with the Penn family. It is thought that this, in part, led to the publication of this impressive map. Dedicated to the Proprietors, it is among the largest and finest maps produced in America to that date. The map depicts Philadelphia, Bucks, Northampton, Berks, Chester, Lancaster, Cumberland, and York Counties, and is based on Sculls own surveys as well as the reports of Major Joseph Shippen, Colonel John Armstrong, John Watson, Benjamin Lightfoot, and others. In addition, some information was gleaned from printed sources, including Fry-Jefferson's important map, evidenced by a printed footnote on the map concerning the location of Fort Cumberland and the Maryland- Pennsylvania border. Elevation is accurately depicted, much in the style of Fry-Jefferson, by neat hachure marks. The eastern counties include a wealth of detail, such as churches, meeting houses, inns, iron forges, mills, and the manors of significant residents; roads, Indian paths, Indian towns, and forts are clearly shown throughout. Although generally quite accurate, it is curious that Scull included Fort Granville on his map, which had been destroyed by the French and Delaware Indians in 1756. Nevertheless, the importance and accuracy of this large-scale map is underscored by the fact that a copy of it was among the maps hung by the Board of War at Philadelphia in August 1776, twenty years after the map's publication (as listed by John Adams in his letter to his wife dated Aug. 13, 1776). The map was engraved by James Turner (d. 1759), a Philadelphia silversmith and protégé of Benjamin Franklin. Turner had previously worked on map engraving during the production of James Parker's 1747 maps of New Jersey, a project for which he had been recommended by Franklin. Little is known about the printer, John Davis. Although he had no shop, he appears to have specialized in large copperplate engravings of maps, as he is the printer identified in the imprint of the 1756 Philadelphia first edition of Joshua Fisher's important chart of Delaware Bay. That map and the present one are his only known works. Scull's 1759 map of Pennsylvania is very rare, with less than a dozen known institutional copies. Only a few have appeared at auction in the last half century, most notably in the sales of the collections of Thomas W. Streeter, Howard E. Welsh, and Laird U. Park (this copy).

        To the Honourable Thomas Penn and Richard Penn Esqrs. True & absolute Proprietaries & Governours of the Province of Pennsylvania & Counties of New-Castle Kent & Sussex on Delaware This Map of the improved Part of the Province of Pennsylvania. Is humbly Dedicated by Nicholas Scull

      Philadelphia: 1759. Engraved map on six sheets, joined as three. Excellent condition, with three short repaired tears, very minor age toning at the sheet edges, overall in remarkable unsophisticated condition. Provenance: Laird U. Park (Sotheby’s New York, 29 November 2000, lot 322). 3 sheets, each app. 31 x 21 1/2 inches. "The first map of Pennsylvania to be published in America [as well as] the most ambitious cartographical work to come from an American source before the Revolution" (Wroth). Nicholas Scull, Jr. (1687-1761) was born in Philadelphia to Nicholas Scull, Sr. the surveyor and mapmaker, who had been apprenticed to William Penn's surveyor, Thomas Holme. In 1719, he became deputy surveyor of Philadelphia County, eventually ascending to the Surveyor Generalship of Pennsylvania in 1748. A bibliophile, he was an original member of Benjamin Franklin's Junto. Scull was intimately involved with Indian relations for the colony, having travelled amongst the tribes to survey the western counties. He was knowledgeable in several local Native languages. But in the dispute that arose about the infamous Walking Purchase of 1737, at which he was present, his recollections favored the Proprietors. This is hardly surprising but it no doubt put him in a good position with the Penn family, and it is thought that this may have led to the publication of this impressive map. It was the first map of Pennsylvania since Thomas Holme's 1687 map of the then much smaller settlement, and represents a vast amount of on-site surveying. Dedicated to the Penn brothers, Scull's map is among the largest and finest maps produced in America in the 18th century. It was an extraordinary achievement. The map depicts Philadelphia, Bucks, Northampton, Berks, Chester, Lancaster, Cumberland, and York Counties, and is based on Scull's own surveys, as well as the contributions of several others (whom he acknowledges). Some information was gleaned from printed sources, including Fry-Jefferson's important map, evidenced by a printed footnote concerning the location of Fort Cumberland and the Maryland-Pennsylvania border. Elevation is accurately depicted, much in the style of Fry-Jefferson, by neat hachuring marks. The eastern counties include a wealth of detail, such as churches, meeting houses, inns, iron forges, mills and the manors of significant residents; roads, Indian paths, Indian towns and forts: all clearly shown throughout. Although generally quite accurate, it is curious that Scull included Fort Granville on his map, which had been destroyed by the French and Delaware Indians in 1756. Nevertheless, the importance and accuracy of this large- scale map is underscored by the fact that a copy of it was among the maps hung by the Board of War at Philadelphia in August 1776, twenty years after the map's publication (as noted by John Adams in his letter to his wife dated 13 August 1776). The map was engraved by James Turner (d. 1759), a Philadelphia silversmith and protégé of Benjamin Franklin. Turner had previously worked on map engraving during the production of James Parker's 1747 maps of New Jersey, a project for which he had been recommended by Franklin. Little is known about the printer John Davis. Although he had no shop, he appears to have specialized in large copperplate engravings of maps, as he is the printer identified in the imprint of the 1756 Philadelphia first edition of Joshua Fisher's important chart of Delaware Bay. That map and the present one are his only known works. Nicholas Scull's grandson William Scull revised and extended the 1759 map in a version that was also dedicated to the Penn brothers but which was published in London in 1770, and appeared subsequently in several editions through the decade. Much of the geographical information is the same, but interestingly the earlier map is both larger and evinces greater aesthetic satisfaction. Scull's 1759 map of Pennsylvania is very rare, with less than a dozen known institutional copies. Only a few have appeared at auction in the last half century, most notably in the sales of the collections of Thomas W. Streeter, Howard E. Welsh and Laird U. Park (this copy).

        An Enquiry into the Causes of the Alienation of the Delaware and Shawanese Indians from the British interest, and into the measures taken for recovering their friendship ...Together with the remarkable journal of Christian Frederic Post ...With notes by the editor explaining sundry Indian customs, &c. Written in Pensylvania [sic.]

      London: Printed for J. Wilkie, 1759. Small octavo. (7 11/16 x 4 3/4 inches). 1 folding engraved map with integral letterpress explanatory text to right margin. Expertly bound to style in 18th-century half calf over 18th-century marble-paper boards, spine in compartments simply gilt, red morocco lettering piece. First edition by the 'Man who tells the Truth' of 'one of the most important works on relations with the Indians that had been published up to that time' (Graff). A highly important record of events during the French and Indian War. The book was apparently published at Benjamin Franklin's expense 'as part of his campaign to discredit the Proprietary government of Pennsylvania' ( Streeter). The central theme was that the arrogant self-interest of the colonial government had caused the break down in relations between the Pennsylvania Indians and the British, and had resulted in the natives taking the French side of the fight in the Ohio country. The book was edited by Charles Thomson, a man whose integrity was recognised by the Indians: the Delawares gave him the name 'Man who tells the Truth' when he was adopted into their nation in 1756, and he was chosen by the Indians to record what was decided at the Treaty of Easton. He is now perhaps best known as the perpetual secretary of the Continental Congress. In a lengthy appendix at the end, extracts from the journal of Christian Post are published. Post, a Moravian missionary who had lived amongst the Mohicans for seventeen years, travelled to the Ohio country in 1758 to negotiate with the Indians and won them back to the British side. The work is accompanied by a fine map of Pennsylvania by Thomas Jefferys, including a number of important western geographical features and names. The map, with its integral letterpress key, records lands purchased and Indian claims, as they stood in 1759.

        AN HISTORICAL REVIEW OF THE CONSTITUTION AND GOVERNMENT OF PENNSYLVANIA, FROM ITS ORIGIN SO FAR AS REGARDS THE SEVERAL POINTS OF CONTROVERSY, WHICH HAVE, FROM TIME TO TIME, ARISEN BETWEEN THE SEVERAL GOVERNORS OF THAT PROVINCE, AND THEIR SEVERAL ASSEMBLIES

      London: R. Griffiths, 1759. First Edition. Hardcover. Old, small ink identification number on the front pastedown. Light wear to the leather, some chipping to the head of the spine; covers secure. Light browning throughout. Very Good or better. Octavo (4-3/4" x 8") bound in contemporary calf with gilt rules; viii, [xviii], 444 pages. Its authorship long attributed to Benjamin Franklin (Thomas Jefferson wrote "by Doctor Franklin" on the title page of his copy), many scholars now think it to have been written by his co-agent in London, Richard Jackson, with Franklin's advice, but there is no conclusive evidence either way. Paul Leicester Ford refers to it as item 253 in his Franklin Bibliography. Howes P-204; Sabin 25512.
