        "The natural and civil history of the French dominions in North and South America. Giving a particular account of the climate, soil, minerals, animals, vegetables, manufactures, trade, commerce, and languages, together with the religion, government, genius, character, manners and customs of the Indians and other inhabitants."

      London: Thomas Jeffreys. 1760. "First edition, folio, 2 vols. in 1; pp. [8], 132, *129-*142, 133-168; [4], 246 (with numerous errors in pagination); 18 large folding engraved maps and plans; contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked to match, red morocco label on spine; moderate wear to extremities, some very light spotting to a few maps, otherwise a nice, large copy. & & The last and most complete issue of this wonderful book, with 14pp. of additional text inserted (in most copies only 10pp. are inserted); this copy also contains the cancel on p. 80 of the second volume which is often wanting. & & Issued in the middle of the French and Indian War, this grand work provided English readers with a detailed assessment of the French possessions in America. The first part of the work is devoted to Canada and Louisiana and is based for the most part on the work of Charlevoix, Labat, and the Jesuit Relations. After the book's initial publication, additional materials regarding the siege and capture of Quebec were made available and part of the narrative was subsequently rewritten and inserted with starred pages into the volume. As previously noted, most copies with extra pages contain only 10 starred pages. This copy, like the Streeter copy, contains 14; the four extra pages contain an account of ""The French attempt to retake Quebec in 1760."" & & The second part of the book contains an account of the French possessions in the Caribbean and South America, including Santo Domingo, Guadaloupe, Grenada, Cayenne, etc. The fine, large maps included in this book are of particular interest and importance. They include town plans of Quebec, Montreal, Louisbourg, and New Orleans, as well as maps of Canada and the Ohio and Mississippi country. ""A monumental geographic work important equally for its text as well as its maps"" (Streeter I, 128.) & & Howes J83; TPL 319; Field 775; JCB I, 1260; JFB J43; Lande 471; Sabin 35964."

        L' Afrique Divisee En Ses Principaux Etats

      Engraved, hand colored, decorative cartouche, ample margins, 43.7 x 30 cm (17 1/2" x 12"). A couple of sturdy old repairs, stain in top margin, not affecting image, left edge with small chip; otherwise very good, bright and with a strong impression. Janivier was a French geographer that was active in the second half of the 18th century. According to Norwich and Tooley, Janivier produced a series of maps in 1760, and collaborated in an Atlas Moderne in 1762 and 1771.The present map is number 28 from that atlas. This rather handsome engraved map, which has full color, appears to present the cartographic knowledge of Africa in the mid 18th century. The map is fairly accurate, and shows the only settlements in southern Africa, and also features a few Hottentot tribes. The cartouche, which is in the lower left part of the map, shows a few tress, a leopard stalking, and a crocodile near the bottom. Norwich 104. Tooley p. 59.

        Theorie de l'Impot. [Bound with:] [PESSELIER, Charles]. Doutes proposés à l'Auteur de la Théorie de l'Impôt.

      No place: No printer, 1760-61 - 2 works bound together in 1 volume, quarto (255 x 193 mm). Contemporary French mottled calf, spine decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Engraved armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Lower edge a little rubbed, with corners worn, very occasional spotting. Excellent copies. First edition of each work. The Théorie de l'Impôt is a spirited and able attack upon the financial administration of France, and especially upon the "fermiers généraux", whom Mirabeau regarded as parasites preying upon the vitals of the nation. The work highlights the problems and injustices of the French system of taxation, and added fuel to the fire of the coming revolution. The king disapproved of the work; Mirabeau was imprisoned on 16 December 1760, but through the efforts of Madame de Pompadour and others, was released on Christmas Eve, under orders to leave Paris for his estate at Bignon. The work proposes a reorganization of financial administrative machinery, the abolition of the "Fermes", a reduction in the taxation upon salt, with the object of increasing the total yield, and a special tax upon tobacco farms. The domaine, the post, and the mint were to be further sources of revenue. The author ranks as one of the earliest important writers on taxation. Higgs notes that the book is "of real importance in the history of financial theory" (The Physiocrats, p. 57). Pesselier was one of the most forceful critics of the physiocrats, and he here attacks Mirabeau's Théorie de l'impôt, published the previous year. The present work is notable, however, for its terse affirmation of the characteristically physiocratic doctrine that agriculture holds a privileged place in the economic system; of the products of the soil Pesselier writes, "Elles procurent un profit net et durable puisqu'elles sont à l'abri de l'imitation". Einaudi 3946; Goldsmiths' 9602; Higgs 2297; INED 3209; Kress 5883. Brunet I, 1118; Einaudi 4409; Goldsmiths 9695; Higgs 2534; INED 3524; Kress 5964. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Dramatic Works of Aaron Hill, Esq

      London - T. Lownds, 1760 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of playwright Aaron Hill published only a decade after his death. In need of attention to the binding but well worth the effort. Bound in calf with gilt lettering and decoration. Complete in Two Volumes. With a life of Aaron Hill and a list of subscribers in Volume One. This work matches the ESTC record,#T34928. With a T. Lownds publisher's catalogue to the rear of Volume Two. Aaron Hill, 1685 - 1750, was a writer and entrepreneur. Recent cultural historians have accorded Hill a far more interesting and pivotal role as a pioneer of developments in stage scenery and drama, as a theorist of the Longinian sublime, and particularly for his unceasing activities on behalf of writers of very different political persuasions and literary gifts -ODNB. Condition: The text block bindings are tight and firm. The boards are detached. Therear boardof volume two is held by the cords only. There is significant wear to the extremities,including significantrubbing and edge wear, with marks andsome loss. The spine labels are missing. Internally the pages have some slight browning and light scattered foxing. Overall the condition is fair with a very good interior. A scarce work in need of a sympathetic binding..

        Monasterio del Puig (Valencia)] Historia de la imagen sagrada de la Virgen Ssma. del Puig, primera, y principal patrona de la Ciudad, y Reyno de Valencia: reducida a una prudente Critica, con que se compruevan todas sus maravillosas circunstancias. Su autor

      Valencia, por Joseph Thomàs Lucas, 1760. - 21x15 cm., 14 hojas, 280 pp., 4 hojas. Una lámina grabada con la Virgen del Puche. Encuadernación en pergamino flexible de la época, fatigada (falta parte del lomo), primer cuadernillo suelto, pero obra completa. Edición original de esta interesante y bien trabajada historia de la veneración a la virgen del Puig en su santuario, conocido desde la conquista de Valencia por Jaume I. Este monasterio mercedario del municipio del Puig de Santa María (Horta), fue fundado sobre la iglesia hecha construir en 1238 por Jaime I, y dada (1240) a la orden de la Merced de resultas de la conquista de Valencia, aunque Alfonso I (1135) y Pedro I (1190) habían prometido el pueblo a los monjes de Poblet, para que cuando fuese conquistada, hicieran una abadía filial. Durante el siglo XIV se levantó un nuevo templo, gótico, que aún subsiste, y entre el XVI y el XVIII, el actual edificio monacal. Los padres mercedarios lo ocuparon hasta el 1835. Muchos años después, en 1948, ocuparon de nuevo el monasterio hasta la actualidad. En este monasterio se celebran actos de romería y también de afirmación nacionalista valenciana. Palau 154321.

        Vocabularium Iuris Utriusque ex Variis Ante Editis, Praesertim ex

      1760. Vicat, B[eat]-Phil[ippe] [1715-1770], Compiler. [Ferrigno, Pasquale (fl. 1760), Editor]. Vocabularium Iuris Utriusque ex Variis Ante Editis, Praesertim ex Alexand. Scoti, Jo. Kahl, Barn. Brissonnii, et Jo. Gottl. Heineccii Accessionibus. Auctior Atque Emendatior. Naples: Sumptibus Joannis Gravier, 1760. Four volumes. Volume I has copperplate pictorial frontispiece. Octavo (7-1/" x 4-3/4"). Contemporary vellum, gilt-edged title panels to spines, ribbon markers. Some rubbing to extremities, corners bumped, some minor spotting and light smudges. Occasional toning, light foxing in a few places, internally clean. A nice set. * Second edition. As Vicat explains in his preface, he compiled this dictionary from those of Francois Hotoman, Barnabe Brisson, Johannes Calvinus (Kahl) and, especially, Alexander Scotus to bring their "excellent" work to a wider audience. More important, by combining these works and filling the gaps with original entries he was able to create a dictionary that covered the whole language of the law. Vicat's definitions are brief, but they contain comprehensive references to authorities and texts as well as conjugations, common phrases using the words, metaphors, alternate definitions and antonyms. The first edition was published in 1759. Vicat was a jurist and the director of the University of Lausanne from 1749 to 1762. A pioneer in library science, he was the first to issue a printed library catalogue. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 26:118.

Illustrated with Copper Plates [AND] Thompson (George): A Description of the Chapel Royal, called, The Pantheon or, Burial Place of the Kings of Spain. Translated from the Spanish of Frey Franciso de los Santos

      London, Printed by Dryden Leach, For S. Hooper..., 1760. FIRST ENGLISH TRANSLATION. 2 parts bound in one volume. 4to, 184 x 109 mms., pp. xxxvii [xxxviii blank], 299 [300 blank], including half-title, engraved coat of arms on verso of errata leaf before dedication and list of subscribers; xi [xii blank], 60, 12 folding engraved plates at end of volume, contemporary calf, red leather label; upper front joint cracked and front joint slightly creased, corners a bit worn, some other very slight wear to the volume, but a good copy. The subscribers include the usual clutch of Royal Highnesses and the nobility, and luminaries such as Ralph Allen, the playwright and novelist Richard Cumberland, the antiquary and book collector Richard Fenton, David Garrick, John Hall Stephenson [sic, for Stevenson], Jonas Hanway, Thomas North, Lawrence [sic] Sterne, Voltaire, and William Warburton. The first edition of Santos' book was published in 1657 in Madrid, Descripcio?n del Real Monasterio de San Lorenzo del Escorial. The Escorial is said to be based on descriptions of Solomon's Temple; whatever its inspiration or source, it can easily survive the cliché of being described as one of the most remarkable buildings in the world. Thompson's translation is still one of the most useful accounts of the palace.

        The Interest of Great Britain considered, with Regard to her Colonies,

      London: printed for T. Becket, , 1760. and the Acquisitions of Canada and Guadeloupe. To which are added, Observations concerning the Increase of Mankind, Peopling those Countries, &c. 7 pamphlets bound in one volume, octavo (190 × 128 mm). Franklin: pp. [2], 58, including the additional leaf at the end. Late 19th-century half calf, marbled boards, red morocco label, narrow bands, gilt lozenges to compartments, marbled endpapers. Full-page table to item (e). A little rubbed, contents variably soiled and browned; half-title and title of item (b) torn, no loss of text, half-title laid down, last leaf of the same torn across and with an old sewn repair backed with paper; final leaf of Franklin slightly crumpled and torn at the inner margin, loss of a few characters but overall very good. First edition of Franklin's "Canada Pamphlet", an important contribution to the debate on the relative merits of the retention of Canada or sugar-rich Guadeloupe following the impending victory in the Seven Years' War. Although contemporary opinion credited Franklin ? this copy is annotated "by Mr. Frankland [sic] of America" on the title page ? 19th-century scholarship attributed the pamphlet to Richard Jackson. However, the publication of The Papers of Benjamin Franklin returned "The Canada Pamphlet" to the canon: "in recent years Franklin's authorship has been re-established in the minds of all but a few doubters, though, as Franklin himself seems to have acknowledged, he received some help from his friend and ally Jackson. With this attribution to Franklin the present editors wholly concur" (Papers 9:53). As well as arguing strongly for the retention of Canada, in this, "one of his most important publications in pamphlet form", Franklin also discusses the potential problems of government that might attend the expansion of the colonies, but doubts their ability to act in concert. Further growth "may render them dangerous. Of this I own, I have not the least conception, when I consider that we have already fourteen separate governments ... Those we now have, are not only under different governors, but have different forms of government, different laws, different interests, and some of them different religious persuasions and different manners. Their jealousy of each other is so great that however necessary an union of the colonies has long been, for their common defence and security against their enemies, ... they have never been able to effect such an union among themselves ... Nothing but the immediate command of the crown has been able to produce even the imperfect union but lately seen there". From the library of the 5th Earl of Rosebery, Liberal prime minister and bibliophile, whose collecting was marked by a sensitivity to provenance, the present volume with the armorial bookplate of the antiquary and collector James Maidment reimposed verso of the front free endpaper. A prominent figure in Scottish literary circles, Maidment was a friend of Sir Walter Scott, and himself an author: "his publications mainly of editions of Scottish historical, literary, genealogical, and antiquarian material were very numerous. Many were anonymous, and most were privately printed in small editions, some at least for their bawdy or erotic content" (ODNB). The sale of his extensive library in over 5,000 lots occupied 15 sessions in April and May 1880, raising about £4,500. The other six items in this pamphlet volume relate to Britain's involvement in mid-18th century conflicts worldwide, including a number of uncommon and important pieces, all printed in London: a. A Letter to the Most Noble Thomas, Duke of Newcastle, on certain Points of the last Importance to these Nations ... H. Whitridge, 1746; pp. [2], 38. First edition; an analysis of the causes of the second Jacobite rebellion; b. EGMONT, John Perceval, Earl of. An Examination of the Principles, and an Enquiry into the Conduct of the Two B*****rs ... The Fifth Edition, reviewed and corrected. A. Price, 1749; pp. [4], 79, half-title bound in. Criticism of the prime minister Henry Pelham and his brother the Duke of Newcastle for their conduct of the Austrian War of Succession; c. CHESTERFIELD, Philip Dormer Stanhope, Earl of. An Apology for a Late Resignation in a Letter from an English Gentleman to his Friend at the Hague. John Freeman, 1748; pp. 46. First edition. Chesterfield's resignation as secretary of state over the ability of the Dutch to continue in the current war; d.
