        The Travels of Cyrus. To which is annexed, a Discourse Upon the Theology and Mythology of the Pagans.

      Np: Printed in the Year M,DCC,LX. [1760]. 12mo, xxii, 302 pp. Full calf, gilt backstrip with red morocco label. Top inch of first blank neatly cut away, frontispiece removed. Armorial bookplate of Theodore de Luders on front pastedown. Some rubbing and wear to binding, headcap chipped. A pleasant copy without foxing (reading “Discousre” on title page.) Later edition of the English translation of Les voyages de Cyrus, first published in Paris in 1727. Andrew Ramsay (1686-1743), born in Scotland, was a Jacobite and Catholic convert who spent most of his life on the continent as a tutor and student of mystical theology. His imaginary voyage was translated into English by Nathaniel Hooke and was much reprinted. “In both its French and English editions Ramsay's Cyrus was a sensation... it told the story of Cyrus's adventures among the magi and the Greeks, drawing heavily on the tradition of a pristine ancient wisdom akin to Christianity, and arguing for the existence of three states of humanity: the innocent, the fallen, and the restored. It attacked the ideas of Spinoza and upheld the existence of a subtle fluid, through whose actions God produces physical effects. It also hinted at a doctrine of metempsychosis. In its pages Ramsay attempted to reconcile the philosophy of Descartes with that of Newton in a mystical Christian context.” (DNB) Only three other copies of this edition located: British Library, Nat. Library of Scotland and Penn Libraries. ESTC T208282

        Memoire sur les defrichemens

      Veuve d'Houry, Paris 1760 - In-12, xij, 321, (1). Con 1 tavola fuori testo posta in antiporta. Ottima legatura in piena pelle bazzana marezzata, tagli rossi, dorso a ricchi fregi in oro con titolo in oro su tassello in marocchino amaranto. Ex libris manoscritto al frontespizio. Edizione originale di questa memoria fatta dall'agronomo marchese di Turbilly. Questi, avendo ereditato una proprietà di circa 3.000 acri in gran parte incolti, sperimentò personalmente tutte quelle migliorie e provvidenze (scassi, ronchi, disboscamenti, ect) che in questo libro descrive. Oltre alle sue teorie agronomiche, l'autore espone, nella seconda parte del trattato, le sue idee sull'ampiezza e sul metodo di riscossione delle imposte, sull'auspicata centralizzazione della spesa, sulle misure da adottare per il contrasto di accattonaggio e vagabondaggio che ritardano lo sviluppo delle campagne. Il libro del marchese di Turbilly ebbe un enorme successo e notorietà, servendo allo sviluppo dell'agricoltura in Francia e in Italia. Alcuni esemplari di quest'opera presentano un'addizione di 10 pagine, recanti osservazioni sulla sonda raffigurata in antiporta; tale addenda non è presente nel nostro esemplare.

        Letters Patent, (1683-1760, King of Great Britain)

      1760 - by and with the advice of the Lords of the Treasury, leasing to George Eckersall the house, with gardens, stable and coach house, "all late in the occupation and tenure of Sir Christopher Wren . situate . near our Palace of Hampton Court", with a frontage of 42 feet to Hampton Court Green, and running 328 feet to the Thames, abutting on the East 'the Mitre' [inn] and a house belonging to the keeper of the palace, let to Jasper English, on the West the Store House, Store House Yard and gardener's house, for £25 paid and £10 p.a., to run for 22½ years from 1787, fine engraved portrait of George II 8¾" x 7¾", and engraved border on three sides of the document, all elaborately decorated, signed also by the Deputy Clerk of the Pells, the Middlesex Auditor, and by Robert Herbert, Surveyor-General of the King's Works, vellum, 27¼" x 33¾", Westminster, 13th June green braid tassel at foot but no Exchequer seal, creased at some folds and worn where folds cross obscuring a few words of text (can be supplied from context) The lease continues that granted to Christopher Wren, junior, 1675-1747, on 21st January 1738 to run for 28½ years from 1758 at £10 p.a.

        ENGLISH CHANNEL].

      London. c1760 - Size: 570 x 445 mm. Expert repairs to margins Very good condition Copper engraving. Later colour. A detailed sea chart of the northern part of the English channel, from Kent to Norfolk, from Calais to Frisland, showing sandbanks, soundings, rhumb lines. There is a dedicatory cartouche at lower right on sea shell held aloft by sea nymphs. Captain Greenvile Collins was an outstanding naval officer who became 'Hydrographer to the King' before the Coasting Pilot was published. 'The Coasting Pilot' atlas was the result of the first systematic survey of British coastal waters. It took eight years to complete. The work proved to be extremely popular, and was reissued many times over a number of years. The charts are notable for both their accuracy and their charm.

Erste Ausgabe. (Higgs 2422; Humpert 7491; Kress S.4180; Cioranescu 11854). Ohne den 1772 posthum erschienenen dritten Band. Bielfeld "war mit Friedrich (II.) schon als Kronprinzen befreundet, eine Zeitlang in Rheinsberg sein Gast, und wurde gleich nach Friedrich's Thronbesteigung in dessen diplomatischen Dienst gezogen. . Seine Schriften, deren wichtigste, die 'Institutions politiques', 1760 erschien, erinnern nicht bloß durch ihre französische Abfassung, sondern auch durch ihren geistreich weltmännischen Ton viel mehr an Friedrich den Großen, als an die gleichzeitigen Fachgelehrten. Er hat 'die unsterbliche Ehre, die gelehrte Politik zuerst bei den Höfen introducirt zu haben.' (Schlözer). . Ganz vortrefflich sind (seine) Untersuchungen über den naturgemäßen Standort der einzelnen Gewerbszweige. . Zu den wichtigsten Neuerungen Bielfeld's gehört sein Vorschlag, die Ministerien in 8 Departements zu theilen . Vortrefflich ist Bielfeld's Kritik der Steuern" (Roscher, Geschichte der Nationalökonomik in Deutschland, S. 426 ff.). "Ohne originell zu sein, wirkte dieses Buch doch dadurch epochemachend, daß es das deutsche Publikum mit der einschlägigen ausländischen, zumal französischen Literatur bekannt machte." (Oncken, Geschichte der Nationalökonomie vor Adam Smith, S. 34). So widmet er 3 Seiten allein der Analyse der von John Law in Frankreich eingeführten Maßnahmen. Bielfelds 'Institutions Politiques' waren im Ausland erfolgreicher als in Deutschland selbst - auch Adam Smith besaß ein Exemplar des Werkes und zitierte es.- Innendeckel mit dem ex libris der 'Zur von der Schulenburgischen Bibliothek Beetzendorff', Titelblatt verso mit dem Stempel der 'Probstey Salzwedel', das Titelblatt leicht fleckig, eine Seite mit kl.

        Autograph Letter Signed 'J.D', (John DOUGLAS, one of his pseudonyms) (Charles Edward, 1720-1788, 'Bonnie Prince Charlie', the Young Pretender)

      1760 - on the other side of, and in answer to, a letter signed 'Joseph Thompson', both letters in French with translation, Thompson writes that he had "the honour of writing to you on the 9th of this month", and is confirming its content, "as I find myself unaware of the content of your letters", he repeats it "solely so as to send you the enclosed [letter, not present] for Mr Drumlee which I have just received", asking the Prince to forward it "and to acknowledge its receipt to me, and in addition to do me the favour of believing me, Monsieur, Your most humble and obedient Servant", 1 side 4to., no place but apparently Antwerp, 21st June 1760, the Prince writes back to Thompson "at the Widow Dormer's at Antwerp in Flanders", assuring Thompson that he has received his letter "of the 9th instant, and yesterday that of the 21st with its enclosure", he "put off replying to the first till later as I was waiting for an opportunity to write to you more fully", the Prince will send "in about a week's time - at the latest . a person in whom I have every confidence", who will "collect the remittance for Mr Drumley of 200 francs", and deliver Drumley's reply "to the letter which you have sent me for him", and asks Thompson "to accept the assurance of my sincere friendship", with a P.S. "A thousand compliments from me to the Widow Dormer . I believe that you have some good Ducats, that will be the best way to remit the sum .", 1 side 4to., no place, 25th June small repair Both letters are in the confidential manner of a commercial house. Thompson has dated his at the top and signed it at the bottom, but the regular handwriting (and accuracy) of the main text suggest a clerk. The writer puts two dots over a letter 'y' in the Low Countries manner. For the Prince's handwriting see, for example, British Library Egerton MS, 1609, f. 33, in French, to the Comte d'Argenson, c. 1744 or 1746. "La veuve de Dormer" is apparently the widow of James DORMER (1708-1758, Merchant and Insurer at Antwerp, an English Roman Catholic). Hervé Hasquin, 'Joseph II', Brussels, 2007, p.67. These letters were written in the month before his wife, Clementine Walkinshaw, wrote to Charles announcing that she was leaving him. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Tractaat tusschen haar Hoog Mog. de heeren Staaten Generaal der Vereenigde Nederlanden, en de regeeringe van Algiers. Geslooten in het jaar 1757.

      The Hague ('s-Gravenhage), Jacob & Isaac Scheltus, 1758 (1760). - 4to. 22 pp., final blank. With woodcut device on title page and one initial. Red modern cloth with giltstamped spine title. First edition of the peace treaty between the Netherlands and Algiers on 23 November 1757 (or 12 Rabi' al-awwal of the year 1171, the Prophet's birthday), which ended a war that had lasted since 1755. After the War of Spanish Succession had left the Dutch navy neglected and their merchant fleet large and vulnerable, the corsairs of the Barbary states had begun a series of attacks on Dutch ships. Already the only major naval power to pay tribute to Algiers (under a 1679 treaty), the Netherlands increased their payments to bring about by diplomacy the peace they were unable to enforce by military means. While Algiers had agreed to the peace in 1726 (and the Dutch made new treaties with Tunis and Tripoli), relationships remained tense. The Netherlands were required to send large annual amounts of gunpowder, arms, and naval stores, and "occasionally, if the demands of the Barbary corsairs became too excessive, the Dutch would fight back. They were at war with Algiers from 1755 to 1757 and 1792 to 1793, and with Tripoli from 1789 to 1791. However, in the end peace would once more be concluded. Payment of tribute was always cheaper than maintaining a naval squadron in the Mediterranean for years on end" (Jamieson, Lords of the Sea: A History of the Barbary Corsairs [2012], p. 179). - The present copy is a new issue with an added final leaf (and blank leaf) containing three additional articles appended in 1760.

In part, this is due to the particular nature of her caseÂ… a mirror-image of Robinson Crusoe a savage shipwrecked in the midst of civilization.""Legends of wild children fascinated Europe during the 18th century. One of the most famous was the mysterious story of a young girl, later named Marie-Angélique Memmie Leblanc, found roaming the forests of France in the early 1730s. This very scarce contemporary account of her life, anonymously published in London circa 1760, is very possibly the first edition in English of the life of Leblanc, who came to embody the unresolved origin of the human race. The fascination with her “place of origin and hence with her racial identity marks out a new direction in the history of the feral child. In part, this is due to the particular nature of her case and the fact that she was effectively a castaway in populous France, a mirror-image of Robinson Crusoe, a savage shipwrecked in the midst of civilizationÂ… [Like] Shakespeare's Miranda, Leblanc comes upon a Europe that appears to her as a brave new world.” Her importance was heightened by the publication of RousseauÂ’s Discourse on the Origins of Inequality (1755): ""Leblanc appeared in France just at that moment in which Rousseau revolutionized our understanding of the 'savage'"" (Newton, Savage Girls and Wild Boys, 114-15). After centuries of speculation, in which Leblanc was variously believed to be from Scandinavia, the Arctic, the Caribbean or the American West, or was seen as a representative of the missing link, ""the American scholar Julia Douthwaite and the French surgeon Serge Aroles unearthed hundreds of documents on Marie-Angelique"" that confirmed certain key aspects her life (Stanley, Medical Marvels , 26). ""Research suggests that she may have been born a Sioux from the Wisconsin region, bought by a French woman, and transported with her to Labrador then France. In September 1731 the girl was sighted in an orchard near the village of SongiÂ… The villagers set a bulldog on her, which she killed with one blow before scaling the tree and swinging, branch to branch, back into the woods. The village nobleman, Monsieur d'Epinay, ordered that she be caughtÂ… the girl (who appeared to be anywhere from 10 to 18 years old, depending on sources) amazed her captors by skinning and eating a rabbit uncooked and devouring a chicken in the same way. After several washings, her skin became white. Her huge thumbs and long, tough fingernails were a source of astonishment, as were her sharp, piercing criesÂ… To avoid further escapades, d'EpinayÂ… placed the wild girl in the municipal Hopital St.-Maur in October 1731Â… Called the 'shepherd's beast' on the d'Epinay estate, she was henceforth named Marie-Angélique Memmie LeblancÂ… her once-robust health, weakened by the diet of cooked food and the sedentary lifestyle at the Hopital (and later at convents in Chalons and Paris) was permanently damagedÂ…. Once she became fluent enough to answer questions, her interrogators were able to piece together part of her past. She apparently had been seen roaming the Champenois countryside in the company of another girlÂ… After a dispute over a trinket (some claim it was a rosary), Marie-Angélique wounded her companion with her club. She ran off to fend for herself when she was discovered in the apple orchard near Songi. Thanks to articles in the Mercure de FranceÂ… word of this prodigy quickly spread to the capital and beyond—to England, Scotland, even SwedenÂ… The powerful duc d'Orleans took Marie-Angélique permanently under his protection in 1744Â… She then moved to the capital and began preparations for taking the veilÂ… Mystery continued to shroud Leblanc's legacy into the next century and continues still today” (Douthwaite, 29-33).Anonymously issued in France in 1755 as L'Histoire d'une jeune fille sauvage: authorship attributed to French writer Marie-Catherine Homassel Hecquet or French scientist Charles-Marie de la Condamine. Library of Congress contains a copy of this 116-page edition published in London by R. Davidson: assigning it a date of ""about 1755"" (LOC IV:152). ESTC lists two London editions, each with no publication date, each assigned a possible publication date of 1760. The imprint (London: sold by R. Dursley, T. Davison, T. Manson, C. Bland, and P. Jones) of the 155-page London edition is believed “probably false. Most of these names appear with varying initials in other false imprints"" (ESTC T12460). This preferred 116-page London edition contains the imprint, “London: sold by R. Davidson"": with no bibliographic caution on the imprint's reliability (ESTC N51560).

      Profiel Nijmegen - ?NIMMEGEN?'Kopergravure vervaardigd door Jeremias Wolff naar een ontwerp van Friedrich Bernhard Werner uitgegeven door Johann Friederich Probst rond 1760, later met de hand gekleurd. afm (prent) 38,5 x 111 cm, met onder het stadsprofiel een legenda met landmarks.Aan het einde van de zeventiende eeuw verloor de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden langzamerhand haar rol als economische supermogendheid aan Engeland. In die tijd werden maar weinig Nederlandse stadsgezichten gemaakt. Het waren de buitenlandse uitgeverijen die toen stad (en provincie) vastlegden. Het Beierse Augsburg was met een aantal zeer actieve uitgeverijen 'Europas Bilderfabrik'. De belangrijkste uitgeverij aldaar was die van Jeremias Wolff (1663-1774) wiens zaak werd overgenomen door zijn schoonzoon Johann Balthasar Probst, vervolgens overging in de handen van Georg Bathasar Probst en later weer in handen kwam van diens zonen Georg Balthasar Probst II en Johann Friedrich Probst. Tot 1802 blijft het bedrijf in handen van de familie Probst. De firma modelleerde ook Nederlandse stadsgezichten naar Beiers voorbeeld, waarin de kerktorens uivormige bekroningen kregen.Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776) had een kleurrijke loopbaan voordat hij als freelance kunstenaar voor de uitgeverijen van Augsburg ging werken. Zo was hij ondermeer soldaat, Wunderdoktor, vertaler van opera?s en landmeter. Hij reisde veel door Polen, Pruisen, Pommern, Duitsland, Italië, Frankrijk en Nederland om ontwerpen te maken voor zijn prenten van steden, kerken, paleizen en kastelen.prijs: ?3.250,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

      Augsburg: J. E. Ridinger and 1761 1760 - First (and only) edition of both works. 4to (29 x 22.5 cm). Texts in German and French. First work: engraved title, 36 pp., 46 engraved plates; Second work: 16 engraved plates numbered 1-15 with unnumbered plan of a joust, contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, red sprinkled edges, an excellent example. Ridinger was a German painter and engraver who studied at Ulm before establishing himself in Augsburg where he soon made a great reputation for animal paintings. He became the official painter for several great nobles addicted to the hunt. As here he represented animals accurately and naturally in the midst of beautiful landscapes, his execution was remarkable. But it for his depiction of horses that he is rightly most renowned. The first suite of plates depict the exercises for riders in the riding school (plates 1-43) as well as on the battlefield (44-46). The riding school plates show the horse being introduced, then trotting, volting, galloping, the courbette, croupade, etc., through to the capriole. The battlefield plates show the horse being accustomed to the waving of flags, drumming, and shooting. The second suite depicts the exercises for participating in tournaments and jousts. This copy includes the unnumbered plate with the plan of the riding school which Dejager calls "very rare" noting that Thienermann found it very difficult to find a plate to list in his bibliography of Ridinger plates. Dejager 247 & 248; Nissen 3415; Thienemann 646–692 and 693–707. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Paris, H.L. Guérin & L.F. Delatour, 1760. 1760-1767, 1760-1767, in-12, trois parties en trois volumes, XII-251 + XII-284 + XVI-295 pages, 12 planches dépliantes, veau écaille de l'époque, dos lisses et fleuronnées, pièces de titre rouges et tomaisons vertes, tranches marbrées, Les trois parties qui composent ces Lettres ont paru séparément et avec des sous-titres différents. La première partie, ici en seconde édition, a paru à l'origine en 1753 ; elle comprend les "découvertes qui ont été faites sur cette matière depuis l'année 1752", qui ne figuraient pas dans la première édition. Seconde partie en ÉDITION ORIGINALE ; "on [y] soutient le principe des effluences & affluences simultanées contre la doctrine de M. Franklin, & contre les nouvelles prétentions de ses partisans". Troisième partie en ÉDITION ORIGINALE ; "on [y] trouvera les principaux phénomènes qui ont été découverts depuis 1760, avec des discussions sur les conséquences qu'on peut en tirer. Nollet (1700-1770) fut le premier, en France, à réaliser des expériences avec la bouteille de Leyde et l'un des premiers à publier la relation existant entre la lumière et les étincelles électriques. À l'instar de son homologue du méridional Bertholon, il traita de l'électricité du corps humain dans l'un de ses premiers ouvrages (publié en 1746). Ses théories sur l'électricité furent, dans l'ensemble, en contradiction avec la plupart des physiciens et philosophes de l'époque, dont Benjamin Franklin, à qui il adresse plusieurs des Lettres, ici publiées ; l'opposition des ces deux physiciens fut l'une des plus vives dans le monde des sciences du XVIIIe siècle.
