        The Great Charter and Charter of the Forest,

      Oxford: At the Clarendon Press,, 1759. with other Authentic Instruments; to which is prefixed an Introductory Discourse, containing the History of the Charters. Folio (349 × 265 mm). Contemporary red morocco, black morocco label to the spine, compartments gilt with thistle and acorn tools, boards elaborately gilt with a broad panel composed of dog-tooth rolls, floral, foliate, star and bird tools, similarly constructed large central lozenge to both boards, all edges gilt, foliate roll to board edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Engraved dedication leaf with the arms of the earl of Westmoreland, historiated initials, 10 large engravings of seals to the text, 2 intricately engraved tail-pieces by John Sebastian Miller, and extra-illustrated with a copy of John Pine's engraving of the Magna Carta, hand-coloured and heightened with gold, mounted on linen, folded and bound in on a stub, opening 718 × 482 mm. A little rubbed, particularly at the extremities, head- and tail-caps chipped, label split and chipped with minor loss, light browning to the text, some contemporary inked underlines and marginal manicules, but overall a handsome, wide-margined copy. First edition. "A work of the highest importance for the historian and the constitutional lawyer and shows that Blackstone was a very competent and learned historical scholar" (Walker, Oxford Companion to the Law), and which won him election to the Society of Antiquaries. The volume contains the texts of fourteen mediaeval documents, tracing the history of Magna Carta from the Articles of the Barons in 1215 to the confirmation of the charter by King Edward I in 1300. It represents a pioneering piece of historical scholarship, being based on the examination of the original documents. "Most importantly, Blackstone was the first to publish an accurate version of the text of Magna Carta as issued by King John in 1215. In so doing, he was able to establish that the 1215 Magna Carta was significantly different from the version entered on the Statute Roll in 1297 (itself derived from the 1225 Magna Carta). Blackstone based his edition of the 1215 Magna Carta on the facsimile of the charter made by John Pine, collated with a copy preserved in the Red Book of the Exchequer Â… The Great Charter was not only a scholarly tour de force but a considerable aesthetic and technical achievement. Sold for the princely sum of 15 shillings, it was richly illustrated with detailed engravings of royal seals and historical scenes. The book's collation of the documents was at once representative of the humanist tradition of antiquarian legal scholarship, stretching back to the 16th century, and of more contemporary Enlightenment trends, which brought rigorous editorial methodologies to hitherto confused areas of study" (BL website). This copy, in what may well be a presentation binding - the identity of the original annotator being lost by the removal of an earlier bookplate to the front pastedown - has been much enhanced by the addition of a copy of Pine's spectacular reproduction of the Charter.

        Nouvelles Exemplaires.

With gilt raised bands, twin labels and floral gilt tooling to the panels. Woodcut ornaments. 13 full page engraved plates. A superb copy of a scarce edition.

Previously she had been married to Charles-Francois de Simiane, who had served with Lafayette in America and who died in mysterious circumstances in 1787. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Theory of Moral Sentiments.

      London: for A. Millar, and A. Kincaid and J. Bell, in Edinburgh,, 1759. Octavo (201 × 120 mm). Rebound in full calf to style, incorporating the original front and rear calf panels, spine ruled gilt in compartments, red morocco label, new endpapers. Complete with the half-title, with the errata on final leaf. Pp. 317-336 omitted, as issued. First and last leaf tanned around the edges from the original leather turn ins and strengthened with archival tissue. Five eighteenth and early nineteenth-century ownership inscriptions to the title, two crossed through and one extensively blocked out. Water stain to the upper margin, more extensive towards the end, some spotting and staining, but still a good copy. First edition, published in April 1759 with a recorded "print run of 1,000 copies" (Sher, Early Editions of Adam's Smith's Books, 13). Smith's first book and his later Wealth of Nations demonstrate "a great unifying principleÂ… Smith's ethics and his economics are integrated by the same principle of self-command, or self-reliance, which manifests itself in economics in laissez faire" (Spiegel). Smith's famous phrase is first used here that would be repeated in the later work: that self-seeking men are often "led by an invisible handÂ… without knowing it, without intending it, to advance the interest of the society" (Part IV, Chapter 1). "The fruit of his Glasgow yearsÂ… The Theory of Moral Sentiments would be enough to assure the author a respected place among Scottish moral philosophers, and Smith himself ranked it above the Wealth of NationsÂ…. Its central idea is the concept, closely related to conscience, of the impartial spectator who helps man to distinguish right from wrong. For the same purpose, Immanuel Kant invented the categorical imperative and Sigmund Freud the superego" (Niehans, 62).

        Candide, ou l'optimisme, traduit de l'allemand de Mr. le Docteur Ralph.

      [Geneva: Gabriel Cramer] 1759 - Duodecimo (159 × 96 mm), pp. 299. Contemporary French mottled calf, smooth spine gilt in compartments with centre flower tools, red morocco label, marbled endpapers and edges. Some very skilful, practically imperceptible repair at head of spine and to corners of front board, front joint just a little tender at foot, pale and intermittent water-staining to upper outer corner of first gathering, overall a fine copy. First edition, one of only a dozen or so recorded copies of the true first edition of this celebrated philosophical conte, one of the genuine rarities in major 18th-century literature. There were 18 editions of Candide in 1759 alone, all of them superficially alike, though only four of them, like this, have 299 pages. Recent research, following Ira Wade, Giles Barber, and Stephen Weissman, has identified this as the true first edition, with the following 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, where several short sentences about the Lisbon earthquake were rewritten. This first edition does not preserve the cancelled paragraph on p. 242 critical of German poets (beginning "Candide était affligé") which survives unintentionally in the London edition. As in all but three known surviving copies of this edition, this copy is bound without the two terminal leaves, blank N7 and N8 containing instructions to the binder. Barber 299G; Bengesco 1434; Morize 59a; Wade 1; PMM 204. [Attributes: First Edition]

        ijsgezicht, winter scene - Canot after Jean-Baptiste Pillement.

      "Les plaisirs de l"Hiver"'Kopergravure van Pierre Charles Canot, naar een tekening van Jean-Baptiste Pillement. Uitgegeven te Londen in 1759. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 38,1 x 49,8 cm.Canot (1710 - 1777), van origine Fransman, was lid van de Britse Incorporated Society of Artists, en werd gekozen tot associated engraver toen de titel in 1770 werd ingevoerd door Londense Royal Academy. Canot stelde z"n werk tentoon in de Society of Artists, de Free Society en de Royal Academy. Als vakbekwaam kunstenaar zette hij van befaamde schilders een groot aantal werken in de plaat.Pillement (1728 - 1808) was een Franse schilder en ontwerper bekend om zijn prachtige en gedetailleerde landschappen, maar wiens stempel op de geschiedenis met name kwam door de gravures naar zijn tekeningen en de invloed die daarvan uitging op de verspreiding van de Rococo in Europa. Pillement was een - voor zijn tijd ongebruikelijk - zeer bereisd man en woonde en werkte tussen 1754-1763 in Londen. Daar speelde hij met groot succes in op de smaak van het Engelse publiek dat zijn landschappen zeer waardeerde. Uit die tijd stamt ook deze gravure.Prijs: € 850,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

Edition originale (une contrefaçon parut simultanément). "Auteur et comédien, l’auteur excellait dans les rôles d'Arlequin ( ). Le meilleur de ses ouvrages ( ), apologie de la comédie et des comédiens, en réponse au discours de Rousseau contre les spectacles. Le titre ‘d'Arlequin de Berlin’ est pris pour parodier celui de ‘citoyen de Genève’. Ce livre est le plus estimé sans contredit de ceux qui parurent en réplique à la lettre de Rousseau" (Michaud, ‘Biographie universelle’, X 89). "Réplique mordante à Rousseau (‘Lettre à D’Alembert’) depuis le point de vue d’un comédien, d’un homme qui a une connaissance approfondie du répertoire, l’expérience de la scène et celle des réactions du public. Il prend le temps de citer point par point Rousseau mais aussi de nombreux textes de théâtre à l’appui de sa démonstration" (Nathalie Ferrand, ‘Le dernier état de la ‘Lettre à D’Alembert sur les spectacles’, Genesis, 34, 2012, p. 135 sq.).

A short description of the vast Empire of China.London, Printed for W. Freeman, J. Walthoe, T. Newborough, J. Nichelson and R. Parker, 1706. 4to. With engraved frontispiece, 1 engraved folding map, and 30 engraved plates (8 folding and 1 double-page). Contemporary blind- and gold-tooled calf, rebacked.

      Cordier, Sinica, col. 2468; ESTC T55175; Lach & Van Kley III, pp. 1759-1767. First and only edition in English of a travel account by the ambassador of the Czar of Muscovy to the court of the Emperor of China. Ambassador Ides (1657-1708) was a native of Holstein-Glückstadt and set up as a merchant in Moscow in 1687. In 1692 Ides was selected to lead a Russian embassy and trade mission to China. His account of this journey, first published in Dutch in 1704, is one of the "most detailed and accurate descriptions of inner Asia up to that time" (Lach & Van Kley). He gives rich descriptions of the landscape and inhabitants of Siberia and especially important is his information on Manchuria and Inner Mongolia, where the expanding Russian and Chinese empires bordered. As one of the first Europeans, Ides described the Gobi Desert.Combined with Ides's account of his travels is a description of the topography of China and of its inhabitants, supposedly written by a Catholic Chinese named Dionysius Kao. Ides had received a manuscript with this text from Kao and had later sent it to his Dutch friend Nicolaes Witsen (1641-1717), possibly together with a manuscript of his own account. According to a note by the original Dutch translator, Kao's text was written in "barbarous and unintelligible Latin, and somewhat better German" (p. 209). Most plates with repaired tears and waterstains, pages browned with some darker stains. Original binding heavily damaged but professionally restored. A fair copy of an important travel account.

        Compendio del arte de la lengua mexicana.

      Mexico: Bibliotheca Mexicana 4to (21 cm, 8"). Frontis., [12] ff., 202 pp., plt.. 1759 This is the second edition of Carochi's grammar, and as such is the first edited and improved by Paredes; the first edition appeared in 1645 and is a very rare book. The work is widely held to be the best Nahuatl grammar in the classical tradition; Dra. H. de León-Portilla calls it a "Resumen conciso de lo más sobresaliente expuesto por Carochi." Carochi, an Italian Jesuit missionary, is considered to have been one of the three best scholars of the colonial era to turn his attention to the study of the native languages of Mexico. This edition of his work, "Dispuesto con brevedad, claridad, y propriedad por el P. Ignacio de Paredes," bears an elaborate emblematic frontispiece engraved by Zapata — also in a classical tradition — showing St. Ignatius teaching the peoples of the world. Provenance: 18th-century ownership inscription, "Del uso del B. Ygnacio Rendon"; note in French "Se vend en 1874, 300 francs"; 19th-century bookplates of "Museum Bollandianum," one marked in pen "double. Contemporary limp vellum, remnants of ties. Pages mostly clean and white, with a very few showing small spots of foxing. A very satisfactory copy.

      [Madrid, 1759. Folio. Dbd. Maltese cross at head of title. Contemporary manuscript inscriptions in ink at top of first page. Accomplished in manuscript at Villaviciosa, Spain on February 18, 1759, signed by Juan Manuel Crespo, with additional inscription, on p.[3]. Light dampstaining in margins, occasional light soiling. A very good copy. A rare royal cedula issued by Ferdinand VI, King of Spain, confirming that the Secretaries of vice-royal chambers throughout the Americas do not have the rights, privileges, and emoluments held by governors, corregidores, and alcalde mayores. The decree refers to past abuses of power and finance by secretaries which were harmful to the realm, and directs Viceroys, Presidents, and Governors to ensure that secretaries, officials, and other dependents do not assume privileges which are not appropriate to their position. This copy, accomplished in manuscript at Villaviciosa, Spain on February 18, 1759, is signed by Juan Manuel Crespo, with the inscription "Yo el Rey. Por mandado del Rey Nuestro Señor." In addition, the inscription notes that this printed text is a copy of the royal cedula located in the books of the Secretary of Peru located in Madrid as of March 31, 1759. A rare proclamation regarding the limits of compensation for particular royal officials in Spanish dominions throughout the New World. Not in OCLC, Medina (BHA), or Palau.

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

        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. 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 protÈgÈ 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).

Etwas berieben, gestauchte Ecken restauriert. Erste Ausgabe, erster Druck (Muncker S.387f.; Goedeke IV,379,86; Kat. Fabula docet 114). – Vereinzelt etwas fleckig. Oben und seitlich stärker beschnitten als unten. Gemusterte Innendeckelbezüge. A.d. weiße Vorsatz der handschriftl. Eintrag: „Geschenk vom Herrn [??] BOIE Meldorf 11.December 1793 KRÜCK“. FRIEDRICH CHRISTIAN KRÜCK (1759 - ?) war Gerichtsaktuar und diente als solcher dem 1781 zum Landvogt in Meldorf berufenen H.C.BOIE. BOIE hatte LESSING bereits 1767 persönlich kennengelernt und blieb ihm freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Fabeln sind Resultat und Höhepunkt von LESSINGs langwährender Beschäftigung mit dieser Dichtungsart. Erste Zeugnisse dessen, die poetischen Fabeln, finden sich bereits in den Schrifften von 1753ff.; kurz vor der vorliegenden Ausgabe, hatte er noch S.RICHARDSONs Æsop’s Fables übersetzt und herausgegeben (Sittenlehre für die Jugend, 1757; vgl. No.1707). „LESSINGs Fähigkeit, in subtilster Form die Ironie in prägnanter Kürze und leuchtender Klarheit einfache, aber fundamentale Wahrheiten mitzuteilen, hat in den Fabeln einen in der deutschen Sprache nicht vergleichbaren Höhepunkt.“ (Kat. Lessing-Ausstellung. Wolfenbüttel). Die den neunzig Fabeln angehängten Abhandlungen „sind nicht nur insofern von Bedeutung, als LESSING hier einige zentrale Begriffe seiner späteren theoretischen Hauptschriften bereits vorwegnimmt und sogar deutlicher formuliert, sondern auch deshalb, weil die allgemeine Literaturtheorie des 18.Jhdts, besonders die von GOTTSCHED und J.J.BREITINGER, der Fabel eine hervorragende Rolle zuwies und LESSING nahezu alle seine zahlreichen Vorgänger an Einsicht in die Struktur dieser ‚Dichtungsart‘ übertrifft.“ (KNLL 10, 313).

        PRINCE OF ABISSINIA. A TALE [RASSELAS]

      London: Printed for R. and J. Dodsley and W. Johnston, 1759. 2 volumes. First edition, the first state with A2r of Vol. II reading "Contents,/Vol. II." The first edition consisted of 1500 copies in total, this being the most rare state. Small 8vo, bound in the original contemporary full calf, the covers with double-fillet gilt ruled frame, long ago expertly restored at the hinges in correct sympathy to the covers and spines, raised bands ruled in gilt and with gilt volume numbers, blanks present as called for, original end-leaves. Housed in a fine solander case of brown calf, the spine with raised bands and three red morocco labels gilt lettered and numbered. viii, 159pp; viii, 165 pp. Very scarce in full period calf in its earliest state, the text solid and quite fresh, very clean but for some minor expected age toning. The calf with some minor age-wear at the corners and normal evidence of age or use, sturdy and attractive and a pleasing and well-preserved and honest copy. RARE FIRST EDITION AND FIRST STATE ORIGINAL CONTEMPORARY BINDINGS. ESPECIALLY ELUSIVE THUS. This would eventually become Dr. Johnson's best selling and most popular work and it has never been out of print. The book was written in a single week to pay for the costs incurred in caring for Johnson's mother during her sickness and for her eventual funeral. It is also Johnson's only novel. Universally and immediately known as "Rasselas", the name was not actually given to the work until after the author's death. All of the editions published in Johnson's lifetime were done anonymously. Fleeman states that, "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." Both Hawkins and Boswell agree the work was written in order to help his mother during her illness. It is said that Johnson was able to finish the work in such short time because he had already been pondering the tale for his entire life. One of the most popular works in the language, 'Rasselas' is an tale about happiness influenced by Lobo's A Voyage to Abyssinia which Johnson had translated in 1735. A "philosophical romance", early readers considered it a work of practical importance while critics remarked on the difficulty of classifying it as a novel. While the story is thematically similar to Candide by Voltaire, also published early in 1759, as both concern young men traveling in the company of honoured teachers, encountering and examining human suffering in an attempt to determine the root of happiness, their root concerns are distinctly different. Though philosophically complex, the plot of 'Rasselas' is simple in the extreme. An interesting legacy of the work, and testament to its popularity, is that Rasselas became a name frequently adopted by emancipated slaves. Johnson was a staunch opponent of slavery and was revered by abolitionists.

        Compendio del arte de la lengua mexicana.

      Mexico: Bibliotheca Mexicana 4to (21 cm, 8"). Frontis., [12] ff., 202 pp., plt.. 1759 This is the second edition of Carochi's grammar, and as such is the first edited and improved by Paredes; the first edition appeared in 1645 and is a very rare book. The work is widely held to be the best Nahuatl grammar in the classical tradition; Dra. H. de León-Portilla calls it a "Resumen conciso de lo más sobresaliente expuesto por Carochi." Carochi, an Italian Jesuit missionary, is considered to have been one of the three best scholars of the colonial era to turn his attention to the study of the native languages of Mexico. This edition of his work, "Dispuesto con brevedad, claridad, y propriedad por el P. Ignacio de Paredes," bears an elaborate emblematic frontispiece engraved by Zapata — also in a classical tradition — showing St. Ignatius teaching the peoples of the world. Provenance: 18th-century ownership inscription, "Del uso del B.
