Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, dont le seul Ami des hommes parut pour la première fois en un volume en 1756. Un frontispice au tome I de Fessart (lequel manque souvent dans l'édition in-12), et 6 tableaux dépliants dans le Tableau économique de Quesnay au tome VIII. 7 pages de titres sans lieu ni adresse, le tome V ne porte qu'un faux-titre (Suite de la quatrième partie). Originellement en trois volumes, L'ami des hommes demeurera jusqu'aux dernières éditions en trois volumes complets ; les diverses parties ajoutées (dans cette édition 6) ne sont que des oeuvres agglomérées au thème général de la réflexion économique des physiocrates, notamment Le tableau économique de quesnay du huitième volume, ou le mémoire sur l'agriculture de l'académie de Berne, c'est ainsi que plus tard, on trouvera même une huitième partie ajoutée : la Théorie de l'impôt de Mirabeau (publié à part naturellement). Reliures en plein veau blond marbré et glacé d'époque. Dos lisse orné de 4 fleuons cloisonnés. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin havane. Un léger manque en tête du tome II et du tome III. Un manque en queue du tome V. Manque le long du dos du tome VI sur 3 caissons (avec large manque sur le plat inférieur). Un manque en tête et en queue du tome VIII, ainsi que le long de la bordure inférieure et au coin inférieur. Malgré les défauts signalés, essentiellement au dos du tome VI, plutôt bel ensemble, et bien frais. Sommaire de l'édition : Tomes I, II, III : L'ami des hommes de Mirabeau. Tome IV et V : Précis de l'organisation, ou mémoires sur les états provinciaux, de Thomas Hale. Tome VI : Mémoire sur l'agriculture. Tome VII : Réponse à l'essai sur les ponts et chaussées, la voirie et les corvées. Tomes VIII : Tableau économique, avec ses explications, de Quesnay). Ensemble fondamental pour la physiocratie et l'économie moderne, et qui décentra totalement la vision du monde économique et de ses mécanismes. Mirabeau n'appartenait pas au mouvement des physiocrates quand il publia L'ami des hommes, et il ne rencontra Quesnay que plus tard, grâce à la lecture que fit celui-ci de L'ami des hommes ; cette rencontre sera décisive pour la physiocratie et les futures éditions de L'ami des hommes, véritables machines de guerre pour le mouvement physiocratique dont les idées révolutionnèrent l'économie. Mirabeau démontre l'importance des idées libérales pour l'économie et la population, et l'intérêt et l'importance d'une agriculture forte. Il prône une meilleure distribution des richesses et une égalité raisonnée des taxes. L'ouvrage devint si célèbre dans toute l'Europe que Mirabeau fut affublé de son titre.

Very good condition with the original spinelabels. Interior bright and clean. No foxing. Rear cover of Volume II nearly detached. Provenience: From the library of Henry Augustus Viscount Dillon, with his bookplate / Exlibris in all three volumes. Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (28 February 1533 ?- 13 September 1592) was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with serious intellectual insight; his massive volume Essais (translated literally as "Attempts" or "Trials") contains some of the most influential essays ever written. Montaigne had a direct influence on writers all over the world, including Francis Bacon, René Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Albert Hirschman, William Hazlitt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Eric Hoffer, Isaac Asimov, and possibly on the later works of William Shakespeare. In his own lifetime, Montaigne was admired more as a statesman than as an author. The tendency in his essays to digress into anecdotes and personal ruminations was seen as detrimental to proper style rather than as an innovation, and his declaration that, 'I am myself the matter of my book', was viewed by his contemporaries as self-indulgent. In time, however, Montaigne would come to be recognized as embodying, perhaps better than any other author of his time, the spirit of freely entertaining doubt which began to emerge at that time. He is most famously known for his skeptical remark, "Que sçay-je?" ("What do I know?", in Middle French; directly rendered Que sais-je? in modern French). Remarkably modern even to readers today, Montaigne's attempt to examine the world through the lens of the only thing he can depend on implicitly—his own judgment—makes him more accessible to modern readers than any other author of the Renaissance. Much of modern literary non-fiction has found inspiration in Montaigne and writers of all kinds continue to read him for his masterful balance of intellectual knowledge and personal storytelling. (Wikipedia) Provenience: Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee, 13th Viscount Dillon (28 October 1777 ?- 24 July 1832) was an Irish peer, writer and MP for Harwich and for County Mayo. Henry Augustus was born on 28 October 1777 at Brussels, the son of Charles Dillon-Lee, the twelfth Viscount Dillon, and his wife Henrietta Maria, the only daughter of Constantine John Phipps, 1st Baron Mulgrave. In the year 1794, when he was seventeen years old, Henry Augustus was a Colonel of the Irish Brigade. In 1799, at age 22, he was a Member of Parliament for County Harwich, and in 1802 became a Knight for Mayo. His knighthood ended in 1813 upon the death of his father, when he acceded to the Peerage as the thirteenth Viscount Dillon of Costello-Gallen. In February 1807, Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee married Henrietta Browne, sister of Dominick, 1st Baron Oranmore and Browne, daughter of Dominick-Geoffrey Browne, by Margaret, daughter of the Hon. George Browne, 4th son of the 1st Earl of Altamont. The marriage produced nine children: Henrietta Maria (1807, Halifax ?- 1895, London), a social reformer, married Edward John Stanley, 2nd Baron Stanley of Alderley. Margaret Frances Florence (d. 1885), m. to geologist William John Hamilton. Louisa Anne Rose, d. 1902, m. to the Hon. Spencer-Cecil Ponsonby of Bessborough. Helena Matilda. Charles Henry, b. 1810 at Dublin, d. 1865 at Ditchley, Oxford; succeeded his father as 14th Viscount. Theobald Dominick, b. 1811; succeeded his brother as 15th Viscount.

Gerald-Normanby (1823 ?- 1880), m. to Lady Louisa-Isabella-Georgiana FitzGibbon, daughter of the Earl of Clare, had issue. Emily W. Sunstein in her biography Mary Shelley: Romance and Reality writes "the literary Lord Dillon... was said to be Eliza Rennie's lover." He died 24 July 1832. His widow died thirty years later at the Hotel Windsor, Paris, 18 March 1862, aged 73. (Wikipedia)

        MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT SIGNED, "A PASS FOR NIAGARA FOR JOHN HOGEN & H: BOGART THIS BUNDELL CONTAINS OLD DEEDS AGREEMENTS &c" [manuscript docket title]

      Oswego. Sept. 15, 1759.. [1]p. Folio. Wax seal. Silked on verso. Old fold lines. Separation at some folds, repaired with tape; central fold repaired with some minor loss to text, not affecting legibility. Lightly toned. Good. A pass written by Superintendent of Indian Affairs, Sir William Johnson, authorizing traders John Hogan and Henry Bogard to trade with the Indians at Niagara. The pass reads: "By the Honble. Sir William Johnson Bart. His Majesty's sole agent and superintendant [sic] of the Indian affairs for the Northern District of North America, Colonel of the Six United Nations their allies and dependants &c. Permit the bearers Messrs. John Hogan, and Henry Bogard to reside at and carry on a fair trade with all Indians who may come to your post, and are friends or allies of His Brittannick Majesty. Having hereby my liberty for so doing, they behaving themselves as becometh, and conforming to all such regulations as may here after be judged necessary to make for the encouragement, and better carrying on an extensive commerce with all such Indians. Given under my hand and seal of office at Oswego this 15 day of September 1759. Wm. Johnson. To the commanding officer at Niagara." Sir William Johnson (1715?-1774) was a colonial officer and landholder in upstate New York who became the primary British Indian agent, instrumental in the stability and trade of the region. "In February 1756, as part of a general imperial reorganization, Sir William Johnson became superintendent of Indian affairs for the northern department. Although never able to win all Iroquois, much less their Indian neighbours, to the British side, Johnson raised substantial Native American forces. At the battle of Niagara in 1759, assuming command when General John Prideaux was killed, he led British and American Indian troops to victory. After the surrender of the French in North America, Johnson unsuccessfully opposed commander-in-chief Jeffrey Amherst's disastrous policy of curtailing the Indian trade, banning the distribution of diplomatic presents, and shunning traditional diplomatic formalities, which sparked the decentralized attacks on British posts known as the Pontiac War (1763?-6). None the less, Johnson's diplomacy kept most Iroquois from the fray, and, especially in a treaty with Pontiac at Oswego in 1766, helped to restore peace" - ANB. The Battle of Niagara, really a three week siege of the French fort there, took place July 6-26, 1759. With the French surrender, and the death of Prideaux, Johnson became the commanding officer of the British and allied Indian forces now securing one of the key points in the struggle for Canada. As this document demonstrates, he was still in control there seven weeks later. Such documents are scarce and desirable. ANB (online).

        Quebec, the Capital of New-France, a Bishoprick, and Seat of the Soverain Court.

      [Boston, 1759]. - Single sheet, mounted and framed (sheet size: 7 ¾ x 9 ¾ inches; frame size: 11 ½ x 13 ¼). EXTREMELY FINE engraved view of the city of Quebec, with ORIGINAL HAND COLOR (a bit browned). Provenance: With original backing board preserved in a Mylar enclosure on the back of the frame, with the label of J. William Middendorf II (b. 1924). Peter Stephen Winkworth, his sale, Christie's, April 1, 2015, Lot 46. Exhibited Brooklyn, NY, the Brooklyn Museum (on loan, from January 17, 1969); Washington, D.C., The Museum of Graphic Art, "American Printmaking: The First 150 Years," 1969, cat. no. 25. "THE MOST IMPORTANT ENGRAVED VIEW OF [QUEBEC], AS WELL AS THE EARLIEST EXECUTED BY AN AMERICAN" (Deak) First edition, second state with the addition of a note about the defeat of Montcalm on September 13, 1759. "Probably one of the earliest American interior views" (Stokes & Haskell). This extremely important and influential view of Quebec was produced the year that the British wrenched control of the city from the French. This state of the view includes an account of Howe's defeat of Montcalm in September 1759 just outside of Quebec, one of the most important battles of the American theatre of the Seven Years' War. 1759 came to be known as England's Annus Mirabilis, or Year of Miracles, because the country's great military success against the French on several continents. This view is based on an inset that appeared in an earlier map of Quebec by Nicolas de Fer published in 1718, which was published in volume 6 (1719) of H. A. Chatelain's seven-volume "Atlas Historique" (1705-1720). Deak calls this "the most important engraved view of that city, as well as the earliest executed by an American. Interest in the northern French settlement was particularly high in 1759: in that year the city fell to the English, a landmark even in the expansion of the British empire The flowering tree that frames the left of this charming view with its fairy-tale air was transplanted by Johnston from the Chereau engraving. It was Chereau, too, who added the buildings bordering the St. Lawrence River in the immediate foreground and updated the legend supplied by de Fer from eighteen to twenty references. The American engraving provides a literal translation o fthis legend and of the title, which Chereau had boxed in a central column. Some of Johnston's original touches can be seen in the artistic lettering of the caption (more in harmony with the style of the engraving), in the firing of guns from the master ship (center), and in the error of repeating the number 7 in the crowded legend" (Deak p. 47). Deak 78. Stokes & Haskell B-17. Stauffer 1505.

        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.

        Compendio del arte de la lengua mexicana del p. . de la Compañía de Jesús; dispuesto con brevedad, claridad, y propiedad por el P. Ignacio de Paredes de la misma Compañía.

      México, en la Imprenta de la Bibliotheca Mexicana 1759 - 4º (20,2 x 14,5 cm.) Frontis grabado al cobre por Zapata, con la figura de San Ignacio de Loyola, 12 h. inc. port., 202 p. Pergamino de época, rotulación en lomo. Segunda edición, editada por el también jesuita Ignacio de Paredes. Pequeño taladro marginal sin afectar texto. “Aunque el Arte. de Carochi no es la primera gramática publicada del mexicano, sino la quinta, se trata de una de las obras más influyentes, junto con la obra lexicográfica de Molina publicada en 1571, en el estudio de la documentación escrita en el náhuatl del centro de México de los últimos siglos. El Arte. consta de cinco libros y entre sus aportaciones destacan el empleo de una ortografía con el registro de diacríticos para las vocales largas y el salto glotal, así como la inclusión del libro quinto al que llama De los adverbios y conjunciones de la lengua mexicana. Los ejemplos con los que el jesuita da cuerpo a su gramática son una copiosa muestra de una lengua en plena vitalidad y, además de ser formas del mexicano hablado y escrito, son también las equivalencias que un bilingüe competente podría proporcionar en el español de la época”. [Carmen Herrera, Gran diccionario del náhuatl.] “Carochi taught at the Jesuit college in Tepotzotlán, Mexico, where he was one of the few priests to master the native languages of Mazahua, Nahuatl, and Otomí. First published in 1645, his Arte de la lengua Mexicana was often reprinted, and is still an essential tool of Nahuatl philology. This version was edited by the Jesuit Ignacio Paredes.” [De Backer-Sommervogel] Mínimo taladro de polilla en el margen superior interno de las primeras hojas, sin afectar texto.

      [Madrid. 1759].. [3]pp. 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.

"The first important British work on the anatomy and physiology of the eye."--Garrison-Morton 1484.2. "Porterfield"s Treatise was carefully read by all of the subsequent great contributors to ophthalmology and visual science for more than a century after its publication. One of the most erudite of 18th century medical authors, Porterfield cited and quoted widely from both the "old" and "modern" authors of his day. The book"s greatest strength, however, lay in its numerous original experiments and observations about visual physiology. Among the many who stessed the usefulness of this work, with regard to their own ideas, were Thomas Young and Hermann Helmholtz."--Daniel M. Albert, in his introduction to a modern facsimile edition in the Classics of Ophthalmology series.

        Notizie intorno ad Isotta da Rimino scritte dal conte Giammaria Mazzucchelli.

      Edizione seconda accresciuta dall?Autore. Brescia, dalle Stampe di Giambatista Bossini, 1759. In 12esimo, 1 c. bianca, antip. con ill. a p. p. incisa in rame raffigurante ?Isottae Ariminensis?, front. con fregio tip., pp. 46 + 1 c. bianca, 2 tavv. f. t. più volte rip., numerate 2 e 3 (la 1 è considerata quella dell?antip.) e raffiguranti l'una sei monete con l'effigie della nobil donna, l'altra il suo sepolcro, sobria leg. in cartonato marezz. marrone, contropiatti in carta colorata, tagli pezzati in rosso / blu. Seconda edizione, assai rara, della monografia dedicata a Isotta degli Atti, la celebre amante, poi moglie, di Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesti, signore di Rimini, e figlia di Francesco di Atto degli Atti, agiato mercante di lane e, più tardi, anche funzionario malatestiano (depositarius di Sigismondo), appartenente a un ramo della nobile famiglia di Sassoferrato stabilitasi a Rimini al principio del sec. XIV. Il Mazzucchelli circa le nozze di Isotta con Sigismondo, ipotizza il principio del 1453, quando lui le regala abiti e gioielli. E sottolinea che il Malatesti negava di aver contratto segretamente tale matrimonio (dal quale nascerà Antonia, poi maritata con Rodolfo Gonzaga). Ricordiamo il giudizio datone da Augusto Campana nel 1951, che definì le ?Notizie intorno ad Isotta da Rimino? ?una ?piccola cosa se si vuole, ma veramente egregia? e ?primo lavoro monografico di argomento malatestiano?. L?A. (Brescia, 1707 ? 1756), fu storico e letterato assai erudito. La tavola 2 reca uno strappo restaurato al margine laterale bianco, esente la parte incisa; la tavola 3 ha uno strappetto al margine laterale che interessa, seppur minimamente, la parte incisa; minimi difetti di allentatura alla cerniera; peraltro esemplare fresco e in buono stato di conservazione.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O., "Mardi 30" [I. 1759].. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Mit eigenh. Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief). 4to.. An Louise-Marie-Madelaine Dupin: "[ ] Je vous remercie, Madame, avec bien de la reconnaissance de vos bontes et de votre souvenir. Sans savoir quel est le sujet de votre proces je serai dans l'inquietude jusqu'a ce que j'apprenne quelle en est la decision. Pour eviter de la fatigue a vos domestiques, vous pouvez si vous voulez bien me tirer de peine me faire ecrire un mot par la poste. Quant a l'Ecrit dont vous voulez bien vous souvenir, Madame, s'il peut vous amuser dans un quart d'heure d'ennui, il aura ete bien mieux employe que je n'avais espere. En vous rappelant la respectable memoire d'un homme de bien qui vous honorait, puisse ce meme ecrit vous faire songer quelquefois a un autre homme inferieur a lui dans toute autre chose excepte dans son respect et dans ses sentiments pour vous. [ ]". - Madame Dupin heiratete 1722 den zwanzig Jahre älteren Claude Dupin, später Verwalter der königlichen Krongüter. Mit dem Reichtum ihres Mannes und mit ihren sozialen Talenten gelang es Louise Dupin, einen einflussreichen und geachteten literarischen Salon zu etablieren, in dem sie die führenden Aufklärer Frankreichs zu versammeln wusste, darunter Voltaire, Montesquieu und Buffon. Für die Erziehung ihres Sohnes engagierte sie Anfang der 1740er Jahre den jungen Jean-Jacques Rousseau, der später auch zuweilen ihr Sekretär war. In seinen ab 1782 postum erschienenen "Confessions" setzte Rousseau der Louise Dupin und ihren beiden Schwestern ein Denkmal; Louise bezeichnete er als die Schönste unter ihnen.

        Fables choisies, mises en vers par J. de la Fontaine

      Chez Desaint & Saillant [et] Durand, De l'Imprimerie de Charles-Antoine Jombert, Paris 1759 - A large paper copy with leaves measuring 465 x 330 mm (18 3/8 x 13 inches). Four volumes handsomely bound in contemporary French mottled calf. Red and green morocco spine labels with rich gilt detailing, marbled end-papers and all edges marbled. Discrete repairs to the spine ends without rebacking. Internal contents are generally in excellent condition although with the occasional spot of foxing and with a few worm pinholes running through the blank margins. Front inner hinge of Volume IV cracked but holding and slight age-toning to text leaves in that volume. Collating: [iv], xxx, xviii, 124; [iv], ii, 135, [1 blank]; [iv], iv, 146; [iv], ii, 188 [2 blanks]. Complete with the engraved frontis, the extra engraved portrait of Oudry (found only in some copies) and 275 other engraved plates after Jean-Baptiste Oudry by Cochin, Tardieu, Prevost, Chedel, Lempereur, and others, as well as numerous woodcut title vignettes, headpieces and tailpieces. The first plate for Fable CLXXII, "Le Singe et le Leopard" (facing p. 112 in Vol. III), is in the second state with the words "Le Leopard" on the banner. Bookplate of "John Drummond" in all four volumes and a second bookplate with the name illegible. After he became director of the Beauvais tapestry factory, Jean-Baptiste Oudry (1685-1755) began to amuse himself sketching subjects from La Fontaine's Fables. He made a total of 276 sketches between 1729 and 1735. The story of how they became the illustrations of the Fables of 1755 - 1759 is told in the "Avertissement de l'editeur" in Volume I by the publisher Montenault, who had bought the sketches. Ourdry's subjects being landscapes and animals, which he had drawn freely for his own enjoyment, Cochin undertook the responsibility of turning these freehand drawings into finished prints. Although Oudry's skill at portraying animals and his interpretation of La Fontaine's humor can hardly be surpassed, Cochin's sure and experienced hand did much to improve the original designs, particularly the figures. He redrew them, correcting the figures and background and supplying precise lines for the engravers.La Fontaine's towering classic of French literature. "They are like a basket of strawberries. You begin by selecting the largest and best, but, little by little, you eat first one, then another, till at last the basket is empty," wrote the famed wit Madame de Sevigne. La Fontaine did not start writing full time until he was over thirty, but he would become one of the major figures in the French canon. His fables are his most well known and well regarded work -- he collected and adapted close to 240 of them. In early editions, La Fontaine drew chiefly from classical western sources, like Aesop and Phaedrus, but as the fables grew in popularity and he added more to them, he would draw from Eastern and Oriental stories as well as Continental ones. The Fables were first released on 1668, with the final 12th book published in 1694. "?La Fontaine became the greatest lyric poet of his time." (New York Review of Books). [Attributes: First Edition]
