        The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Accession of Henry VII. [2 vols]. London: A. Millar, 1762. The History of England, under the House of Tudor. Comprehending the reigns of K. Henry VII. K. Henry VIII. K. Edward VI. Q. Mary, and Q. Elizabeth. In Two Volumes. London: A. Millar, 1759. The History of Great Britain, under the House of Stuart. Vol. I. Containing the reigns of James I. And Charles I. Vol. II. Containing The Commonwealth, and the reigns of Charles II. And James II. The Second Edition Corrected. London: A. Millar, 1759.

      London: A. Millar, 1759 - 6 volumes, 4to, viii, 424, [92 index]; viii, 446, [1]; viii, 402; iv, 403-739, [1]; viii, 464; [ii], v, 457 pp., uniform contemporary half calf with contrasting labels (numbered in chronological order rather than order of publication), rubbed and scuffed, spine ends and corners worn, first volume with lower compartment of backstrip missing, all volumes with 'Ex Libris Alexander G.A. Mitchell Gaston' inscribed on front free endpaper, uniform light browning and occasional spots, otherwise clean, altogether a good set, scarce in any condition. First editions of the first four volumes (Chou 47, 1-4), with the final two volumes in second edition (not in Chou). ?Hume published his History in reverse chronological order, beginning with the Stuart monarchs (1754, 1757), moving to the House of Tudor (1759), and ending with the earlier periods (1762). The retrograde appearance of the volumes itself became a matter of discussion for several critics. Once finished, the volumes were republished as complete sets in the proper chronological order. Hume intended to continue his History past the period of the Restoration, but his plans were never fulfilled. He initially hesitated for fear that the ?prejudices? against his former volumes had not yet subsided (Hume to Andrew Miller, January 14, 1765)? (James Fieser, Early Responses to Hume?s History of England, Thoemmes Press 2003, xiv). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Moyen de population par la supression des milices; avec un remplacement avantageux de nos armes

      Avignon 1759 - In-12. Collation : 24 pp. En feuilles. Très rare pièce imprimée dont il n'existe aucun exemplaire dans le Ccfr et Oclc. "On crie de tous côtés que l'Etat se dépeuple et on a raison". Les campagnes deviennent de jour en jour plus désertes, les terres restent en friche, ou sont peu fertiles, faute de cultivateurs. "Un moyen plus simple pour repeupler & faire refleurir nos campagnes est la suppression des Milices." Elles détournent au moins 60000 bras, principalement dans l'agriculture. Pour remplacer les soldats de la milice, l'auteur propose de constituer un corps de "Janissaires" en élevant dès l'enfance dans l'usage et la disciplinaire militaire les enfants trouvé. L'auteur se livre à des considérations démographiques et estime à 12000 enfants qui pourraient ainsi chaque année rejoindre ce corps de "Janissaires". On peut doubler ce nombre en ajoutant "les fils des Invalides, des soldats mariés et d'une infinité de pauvres habitants dans tout le royaume." Quelqu'un a écrit à la plume sur le le titre :"Par l'abé de Leyris". Cette même main a écrit une note critique observant qu'un corps de "janissaires" n'est pas toujours l'appui du trône, comme le dit ce texte, mais peut-être sa ruine et ajoute : "M. l'abé n'a pas la vue longue."

        Porträt von Friedrich Wilhelm Gleim, 1759

      1759. Kupferstich auf Papier, Inschrift: "Friedrich Wilhelm GLEIM", Signatur: "FKauke Sc. 1759", Papier: 17,8 cm x 10,1 cm, Platte: ca. 16,7 cm x 10,0 cm, Darstellung: 15,7 cm x 9,4 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Der Dargestellte gründete den 'Halberstädter Dichterkreis', einen Bund junger Literaten und stand in regem Briefkontakt mit Gotthold Ephraim Lessing. Friedrich Wilhelm Gleim führte die anakreontische Dichtung - in Anlehnung an den antiken Dichter Anakreon - in die deutsche Literatur ein, die diese nachhaltig prägen sollte. Der antikisierende ovale Steinrahmen, in welchem sein Antlitz abgebildet ist, ist wohl nicht nur als eine Mode des 18. Jahrhunderts zu verstehen, sondern stellt die Verbindung seiner an der antiken orientierten Dichtkunst in die Literatur der Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts dar.

        Seizure of Dutch vessel by British Privateers, an "Inhibition and Monition" issued 1759 by the New York High Court of Appeal for Prizes, and attested and signed by John Cruger Jr., Mayor of New York.

      New York: 1759 - A fascinating window on British privateering during the Seven Years War with France and its broader implications for the colony of New York. This document pertains to the consequences of the recently enacted British Parliament's Rule of 1756, which declared that neutral ships carrying enemy cargo were in fact legal prizes, on a privateering case before the Admiralty court in colonial New York. This is an example of the complications that had arisen under admiralty law, in which privateers seized cargo from neutral vessels (which was not permitted) because they deemed the cargo itself to be from a hostile nation. The commanders of the British privateers 'Defiance', 'Delancey' and 'Marlborough' alleged that the cargo of the Dutch vessel 'De Vrouw Clara Magdalena' could be seized in spite of the fact that the ship belonged to the neutral Dutch because the cargo was said to be French. This was presented before Lewis Morris, vice admiralty court judge, who ruled in favor of the privateers. However, the Clara Magdalena's Dutch owners appealed, and this "Inhibition Citation and Monition" prevents the British privateers from taking possession of the cargo until the appeal is heard in the Privy Council Chamber in the Cockpit, London.Lewis Morris Jr. (1698 - 1762), was a son of the wealthy and powerful colonial landholder Lewis Morris Sr. Lewis Jr. used his influential position as judge on the admiralty court for the benefit of the colony and for himself. Here Morris ruled in favor of the British privateers, a decision which would benefit the British war effort, Morris' own career and the colony of New York. Morris's position as judge was a powerful one because it originated with the Admiralty and couldn't be revoked by the colonial governor; also, as an admiralty judge his court did not include juries, so his decisions were his own. Morris understood how privateering could be financially beneficial to New York; between 1739 and 1748 privateers brought 91 prizes to New York, attracted there by Morris' efforts on their behalf. As a result of Parliament's Rule of 1756, Morris, who felt that he was expert at discovering deception in Dutch ships' papers, condemned almost every Dutch ship captured by privateers as "lawful prize". John Cruger, Jr. (1710 - 1791) was a colonial New York merchant from a large ship owning family, the fortieth Mayor of the city (from 1757 to 1766), the speaker of the Province of New York assembly (1769 to 1775), a member of New York's delegation to the Stamp Act Congress and a Member of the Committee of Correspondence. While in the Assembly he voted against approval of the proceedings of the First Continental Congress and was named as a "suspected" persons at the New York Provincial Congress in 1776. Cruger left the city in 1776, and stayed in the Dutch loyalist town of Kinderhook, returning to New York City in 1783. One of a number of original manuscripts on vellum,15 3/4 x 13 1/2" with the seal of the Court and attested by the Mayor of New York (signed John Cruger) on a separate attached sheet 7 1/4 x 12" with seal. On the verso of the manuscript, the signed statement of the server, John McKesson.

Cet ouvrage, comme les autres publications de Duhamel, est basé à la fois sur le savoir encyclopédique de son auteur et sur des données personnelles d'observation et d'expérimentation. Il est constitué de 19 "articles" portant sur l'air à bord ou autour des vaisseaux, sur les maladies à bord des navires, sur les précautions à prendre avant ou pendant l'embarquement, sur les "attentions qu'il faut apporter aux aliments pour conserver la santé des équipages". Duhamel du Monceau insiste particulièrement sur la prévention. Il affirme qu'il ne faut embarquer que des "gens en bonne santé" et que les marins sont moins exposés aux épidémies en étant en mer. Il reconnaît que l'air des cales des navires est particulièrement vicié et dangereux (a fortiori si la luminosité d'une bougie décline) et que l'eau stagnant dans les fonds infecte l'équipage. Il montre le caractère indispensable du renouvellement de l'air (par des manches à air et soufflets) et préconise l'emploi du vinaigre et de fumigations soufrées. Il plaide pour une propreté absolue à bord des vaisseaux. Une partie importante est consacrée à l'alimentation et aux moyens de conserver les aliments (pp. 148-192) ; Duhamel conseille le poisson frais et divers "antiscorbutiques" (riz, jus de citron, oseille, chou.) ; il déconseille les viandes salées. Provenance : Bibliothèque du Dr. Le Marc' Hadour (il s'agit probablement du Dr. Henri-René Le Marc Hadour, médecin-major d'infanterie de marine). Cf. P. Villiers, Duhamel du Monceau hygièniste, In : Duhamel du Monceau : un Européen du siècle des Lumières (colloque), pp. 189-200 ; J.P. Aron, Biologie et alimentation au XVIIIe siècle et au début du XIX e siècle, Annales ESC (Économies, Sociétés, Civilisations), 1961, 16, (5), pp. 971-977 : "Duhamel de Monceau essaie de rationaliser la thérapeutique empirique pratiquée par toutes les flottes au long cours depuis le XVIe siècle. Il esquisse avec justesse le régime antiscorbutique." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Document Signed.

      - Confidant of Missouri pioneer Jonathan Bryan (1759-1846) of the noted St. Charles family whose relatives included their neighbor Daniel Boone. DS, 1p, 7½" X 12", St. Charles County, MO, 1847 February 2. Near fine. Acknowledgment that Tuter, who signs himself as "Administrator of the Estate of Johnathan Bryan," has had a writ of replevin made out and issued to the St. Charles sheriff, Edward C. Cunningham (1809-65), for delivery to an unnamed offender. The writ seeks to recover the following property apparently wrongfully taken from Jonathan Bryan's estate: "one negro man a Slave named Heney one Two horse waggon and one pair of Briches Two Black horses one Lorrel horse with bold face one walnut Cupboard one clock one Bureau one bedstead and bedding one walnut Table one Trunk one Bible." In other words, everything but the kitchen sink. Signed at the conclusion by Tater (in his definitely untutored hand). Tales of slaves are found in the Bryan family lore, such as: "Mrs. Jonathan Bryan, a kinswoman of Daniel Boone, was working in her yard with a slave woman when a boy slave screamed. She saw an Indian warrior heading for them with a tomahawk in one hand, and a gun in the other. The women ran for the house. Just as they were slamming the door, they caught the warrior's head and right arm between the door and facing. The slave woman grabbed the hatchet from his hand and killed him with a sharp blow. The women had barely recovered from their fright when the boy shouted again." Could the slave boy in this old family legend by none less than the "Slave named Heney" whose return is demanded in this replevin suit? Quite unusual slavery item with an intriguing history.

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

      , 1759. 1759. Blackstone&#39;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"). Recent period-style calf, gilt fillets with corner fleurons to boards, raised bands, lettering piece and gilt ornaments to spine, speckled edges, marbled endpapers added. Copperplate initials and vignettes. Light toning to text, negligible faint dampspotting in places, faint offsetting from vignettes, internally clean. A handsome copy. * First edition. Texts of documents in Latin, Blackstone&#39;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&#39;s An Historical Essay on the Magna Charta of King John, which described it as a "beautiful and rare edition." Blackstone&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s Bibliotheca Legum Angliae (1788) lists an edition from 1758 with the title Magna Charta and Charta de Foresta. She was not able to locate any copies, however. Later research indicates that this edition is a ghost. Holli
