        The London Magazine or Gentleman's Monthly Intelligencer for 1759 complete, vol. 28; xxviii

      London: R. Baldwin. 1759. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. Bound volume of Jan. - Dec. 1759, in early or original half brown calf and marbled boards, 730 pp, index, with 27 of 28 plates as called for by the binder's directions; lacking only the map of the 'seat of war in the empire of Germany' supposed to be at p. 8. Otherwise very good, with all plates present including folding charts, frontispiece, etc. Light rubbing to binding and lacking spine label. Significant to Pittsburghers for having the first published map of the city of Pittsburgh named as Pittsburgh in the January 1759 issue (a 4 x 4 inch woodcut vignette map); in late November, the French, who occupied Pittsburgh and had built Fort DuQuesne, came under attack from the British General John Forbes and his forces and set fire to their own fort and fled. The fort was rebuilt quickly and renamed Fort Pitt and the settlement surrounding the fort dubbed Pittsburgh, both in honor of William Pitt, the Earl of Chatham. News reached London quickly and this is the first published map and one of the earliest published accounts of the skirmish and name change. Another version of this map appeared at the same time in Scots Magazine of similar dimensions but slightly different, and these two compete for the honor of the first published map of Pittsburgh.

      Oxford: Printed By W. Jackson and Sold By Mess. Dodsley, Owen, and Rivington and Fletcher in London; and J. Fletcher in Oxford, 1759. Two volumes. [4], xliv, 176, 169-192. xii, 272pp. Engraved vignette to title of each volume, two further vignettes to the first poem, 'Castle Hill'. Handsomely bound in contemporary black morocco, contrasting morocco lettering-pieces, richly gilt to spine and boards. A.E.G. Marbled endpapers.

Occasional marginal worming, small paper flaw to Aa2, Vol. I, just touching a single letter, and T4, Vol II, causing loss of page number, else a crisp set. The rare final publication of James Fortescue (1716-1777), Anglican clergyman and writer. A Devonian by birth but an Oxford-man and fellow of Exeter College by education and career, Fortescue includes lengthy poems based on his home-county; Devonia and two of Castle Hill, in addition to 'The Rise and Progress of Science'. The collection of prose, including pieces 'On the Constitution of Nature' and 'Dissertations on Man' amongst poetry attracted significant and somewhat divided critical attention on first publication, with the presentation of various works described as 'very properly intermingled' by The Critical Review but severely criticised in The Monthly Review. Similarly, what the former considers poetic genius, the latter considers unworthy of critical comment, despite lengthy quotation: 'we may safely defy the boldest Aristarchus in Europe, to render compleat and impartial justice to the several curious passages...which may strike him in attentive perusal of these two volumes'. ESTC locates only four copies within the UK (BL, Cambridge, Oxford and Exeter College, Oxford) and six in North America (Cornwell, John Hopkins, Newberry, Chicago, Michigan and Yale). ESTC N8882.. First Edition. 8vo in 4s.

        The Great Charter and Charter of the Forest, With Other Authentic

      1759. Blackstone's Handsome Edition of Magna Carta Blackstone, Sir William [1723-1780]. The Great Charter and Charter of the Forest, With Other Authentic Instruments: To Which is Prefixed an Introductory Discourse, Containing the History of the Charters. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1759. [iv], lxxvi, [iv], 86 pp. As in many copies, the half-title and table of contents (Tabula) are bound between pp lxxvi and p. 1. Folio (13-1/2" x 10-1/2"). Contemporary calf, gilt rules to boards, raised bands, gilt ornaments and lettering piece to spine, dentelles to board edges, marbled endpapers. Rubbing to extremities with wear to head of spine, front joint cracked, rear joints starting, corners bumped and somewhat worn, a few shallow scuffs and some minor staining to boards. Moderate toning to text, light foxing in places, upper corner of text block bumped, internally clean. * First edition. Texts of documents in Latin, Blackstone's essay in English. The engraved dedication to the Earl of Westmoreland is surmounted with his armorial ensigns; initials in the text are ornamented with engravings of various buildings at Oxford University. The tail pieces on pages lxxvi and 73 are historical vignettes; the other ten tail-pieces are facsimiles of the royal seals that are attached to the original documents. This remarkable work is esteemed for its production and scholarship. Its physical appeal was recognized as early as 1829 in Richard Thompson's An Historical Essay on the Magna Charta of King John, which described it as a "beautiful and rare edition." Blackstone's essay, which is based on a great deal of original research, argued that the charter was the foundation of English liberties. This idea, first proposed by Coke, was a central tenet of Whig ideology. More important, Blackstone's research into the original texts demonstrated that all earlier editions of the charter were based on the significantly different reissue of 1225, in the reign of Henry III, rather than the original one endorsed at Runnymede. His philological approach was highly influential; it established the textual focus that has governed subsequent study of the charter. Eller notes that Worrall's Bibliotheca Legum Angliae (1788) lists an edition from 1758 with the title Magna Charta and Charta de Foresta. She was not able to lo

Deuxième édition. André Levret (1703-1780), élève de J.L. Petit, est considéré comme le plus grand obstétricien français de cette période. Il est, d¿après von Siebold, le « fondateur de la médecine opératoire obstétricale rationnelle ». Dans cet ouvrage, il décrit d¿abord les techniques utilisées pour l¿ablation des polypes gynécologiques, en s¿appuyant sur 25 observations. La seconde partie de l¿ouvrage est consacrée aux ¿polypes du nez, de la gorge, &c.¿. Levret passe en revue les différentes méthodes de traitement utilisées (cautérisation, incision, arrachement et ligature), et rapporte 17 observations (11 personnelles et 6 de Manne). Cet ouvrage est orné de six belles planches, illustrant les instruments antérieurement employés (par Ambroise Paré, Fabrice de Hilden, Le Cat, ¿) et ceux, ingénieux, inventés par l¿auteur, au premier rang desquels se trouve son « speculum oris » qui en fait un pionnier de la laryngoscopie.

        Map of the Province of Pensilvania.

      1759 - London: T.Kinnersley, 1759, Sheet 135 x 210mm. A map of the Province of Pennsylvania published to illustrate the conflict between the British, French and their native allies for control of the area during the Seven Years' War (known as the 'French and Indian War in America). In particular it marks Fort Duquesne, a French fort on the Ohio River. In September 1758 the British attacked the fort: an advanced force was crushed by the French, who then burned the fort and retreated before the main force arrived. The British then rebuilt it as Fort Pitt, which evolved into Pittsburgh. This map was published in 'The Grand Magazine of Magazines. or Universal Register', which was mostly written by David Henry. Published as a competitor to the 'Gentleman's Magazine', Henry appears not to have scruples about the sources of his illustrations; this map seems to have been adapted from Kitchin's map for the 'London Magazine', published in 1756, before these events. Thus this map is marked 'F.t du Quesne now called Pittsburg', a very early usage of the name.

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 très estimé"; Hagen I, 464; Horn-Schenkling 13091-92; Nissen BBI, 1156.

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

      - Aus dem Lateinischen übersetzt von Johann Samuel Haller. - 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."

Pedro Calderon de la Barca y Barreda Gonzalez de Henao Ruiz de Blasco y Riano, was a dramatist, poet and writer of the Spanish Golden Age. Born when Spanish theatre was being defined by Lope de Vega, Calderon’s work was important in Baroque theatre. Goethe regarded Calderon as one of Spain's foremost dramatists and compared him favorably with Shakespeare. (Eckermann, J.P. "Conversations with Goethe", 1838â€?"1846) Auto sacramental, is form of dramatic Spanish literature, similar in character to the old Morality plays of England. The auto sacramental was a dramatic representation of the mystery of the Eucharist.

        CIRCULAR LETTER, IN FRENCH, FROM AN INVESTOR IN SEVERAL FRENCH PRIVATEERS, BEMOANING HIS LOSSES AND SEEKING TO RECOUP THEM WITH FURTHER RAIDS].

      Paris. Jan. 15, 1759. - 2pp. plus integral blank. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Minor wear and soiling. Very good. An example of the financial risks inherent in investing in privateers, two of which the writer of the letter lost during the British raid on St. Malo on June 5, 1758. Thirty privateers and one hundred other vessels were also burned in that same raid. The present letter concerns a famous ship that did not burn with the others. During the Seven Years' War, François Thurot, legendary captain of the famous 46-gun French frigate Maréchal de Bellisle, terrorized British shipping and the coasts of England and Scotland. In this letter, the principal investor in that ship writes about financial difficulties caused by the burning of two of his ships during the raid on St. Malo. Having eluded the forces sent specifically to destroy him, Thurot arrived at Bergen on Sept. 13, 1758, staying there until November 25th. Heading south, taking more prizes along the way, Thurot spent most of December at Ostend selling the prizes, and finally reached Dunkirk at the beginning of January 1759, when this letter was written. At the end of the letter is the holograph signature of one "Merlin," a chief investor in several French privateers including the Marechal de Belleisle, who writes [in translation]: "I have the honor to advise you that I sent to Paris to M. Couteulx an account in duplicate of the armament of the frigates Marechal de Bellisle, the Chauvelin & the Marquise, the relevant documents transmitted in duplicate to the Admiralty in St. Malo. . The burning of the frigates Chauvelin and the Marquise, by the English in the port of St. Malo was an event above human precaution, but the consequences of such an event may be reduced by a new campaign taking into account that this might be still more profitable if there was not some considered difficulty at Bergan in Norway. The loss of both the other corsairs fell mainly on me and on my own account of personal loss of 79-f-128 for the armament; and a further loss of 600 thousand livres in the burning of the port, and now I find myself unable to meet my liabilities." Merlin says his creditors will only be satisfied with further adventures by Thurot, whose name is, however, never directly mentioned. Merlin is looking for an agreement to meet his liabilities in four installments. ".but another of the creditors not willing to accept the agreement seized not only these effects, but also the holdings belonging to the commissioning, confounding thus my personal debts with those of the said commissioning.the result is that my personal creditors becoming owners of my interests, which are the largest in the ship Marechal de Bellisle, will dictate to the other interested parties and will cause either expenses or a suspension of commission, a fact detrimental to common interest; perhaps, also, and very likely, they will demand the sale of the ship, which will result in an evident loss for all concerned without compensation. The only way to stop it would be by obtaining a judgment of suspension." He notes that under the circumstances he hopes the recipient will seek the help of Mons. Vallet de la Touche (whose name is supplied in manuscript). Vallet de la Touche (1698-1759) was secretary and advisor to King Louis XV. At the end, Merlin has penned under his signature a nine line postscript, again mentioning Vallet de le Touche, and giving his address. Thurot was killed and his ship captured in an action off the Isle of Man. His body washed ashore near the Mull of Galloway, and he was buried with full honors in the churchyard of Kirkmaiden, Scotland.
