Small worm hole in bottom half of page affects second half of book but does not become large enough to affect text until about page 408 onwards. A "gauger" was an officer whose business it was to ascertain the contents of casks, mainly to assist in the prevention of illicit shipments of alcohol. The job of an exciseman, however, also involved checking shipments of soap, starch, candles, coffee, tea, chocolate, etc. and rules for these are also given. Special sections give advice on how to become an excise officer and "cask-Gauging" as practised in the Port of London. Judging by the book's thickness, there was a lot to learn.

Corps d'ouvrage frais malgré quelques cahiers roussis et traces de mouillures marginales sur quelques feuillets. Les Principia de Newton sont considérés comme l'ouvrage le plus important de l'histoire des science. Seconde édition dite "des jésuites", basée sur l'édition de 1739-1742, avec quelques corrections et les modifications apportées au texte. Cette édition est estimée pour les commentaires abondants apportés par ses rédacteurs, Le Seur et Jacquier. Il contient également dans le volume trois, des travaux importants, qui ont reçu le prix de l'Académie française en 1724 pour résoudre le problème du mouvement des marées par la théorie de la gravité : - Traité sur le flux et reflux de la Mer par Daniel Bernoulli (pages 133-246 ). - Causa de Physica Fluxus et Refluxus Maris par Colin Maclaurin (pages 247-282.). - Inquisitio Physica dans Causam Fluxus ac Refluxus Maris par Léonard Euler (pages 283-374). Ces travaux représentent tout ce qui a été fait sur la théorie des marées entre la publication des Principia de Newton et les travaux de Laplace. (Babson catalogue). Réédité cinq fois, l'édition jésuite a tellement dominé le marché qu'aucune autre édition latine des Principia n'a été publiée entre la troisième édition de 1726 et celle de Koyré et Cohen en 1972.

In Witness where of the Master or purser of the said Ship hath affirmed this and more Bils of Loading, al of this tenor and date on being accomplished, the other to stand void. And so God send the good Ship to her desired Port in safety…”IgnatiusWebber (1733-1783) appears as master on a list of prisoners sent to Boston in the cartel “Snow Drift” from Halifax, September 30, 1778. A cartel was a ship employed in the exchange of prisoners. From 1780, Webber was captain of the privateer “Commerce” in the Revolutionary War. The ship is recorded as having 12 guns and 40 men.The article “Early Jewish Residents in Massachusetts” by Lee M. Friedman, (Baltimore: American Jewish Historical Society, 1915) mentions Lloyd: “Aaron Lopez, the great Newport merchant, carried on a considerable trade with Boston. He had a resident agent there for many years in the person of Henry Lloyd. There was almost a daily exchange of letters between them, and many of his young Jewish clerks were sent from Newport to Mr. Lloyd in Boston … It was no uncommon thing to find young Jews temporarily in Boston attending to business for their employers.” In 1774, Henry Lloyd (c. 1710-1796) was one of the addressers of Governor Thomas Hutchinson and was then described as “merchant and contractor for the troops.” He went to Halifax in 1776, and was proscribed and banished in 1778. For his remaining years, Lloyd lived in London.

        La science des ombres, par rapport au dessein [.] avec le Dessinateur au Cabinet et à l'Armée

Il comprend 18 planches gravées sur cuivre ; 14 illustrent, dans la première partie la manière de poser les ombres en fonction des formes et de la source lumineuse ; 4 montrent la manière de dessiner des plans de places fortifiées et des paysages alentours. Selon son auteur, cet ouvrage est destiné principalement "à ceux qui veulent dessiner l'architecture civile & militaire", à savoir les arpenteurs et les topographes ; c'est leur adresse que la seconde partie est consacrée. Le lieutenant Dupain de Montesson, né vers 1715 et mort dans les années 1790, était ingénieur topographe, ingénieur géographe et cartographe dans l'Armée. Sa contribution à l'art de la cartographie n'est pas négligeable ; on lui doit le relevé de nombreux plans dont ceux de la place de Courtrai, du cours du bas Rhin et des environs de Bayonne.

Andrea Palladio is famous for his landmark architectural designs in the Veneto area of Italy, influenced by Roman and Greek architecture and primarily by Vesuvius, and is widely recognized as one of the most influential architects in the history of Western architecture. He developed three main types of palazzi, and also established an influential new building prototype for the agricultural villas of the aristocracy.

      Artist: Seutter Albrecht Karl d ; issued in: Augsburg; date: d1760 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Printed on 2 sheets joined together; - size (in cm): 56 x 98; - description: Map shows the area of Meissen in Saxonia with a decorative title cartouche and index.; - vita of the artist: Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.

      Artist: Probst Johann Friedrich ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1760 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 29 x 41; - description: Map shows the great Canal in Venice; - vita of the artist: Georg Balthasar Probst (1732?1801), Georg Balthasar Probst was a German artist, engraver and publisher in Augsburg, a major European publishing center in the 17th and 18th centuries. He produced architectural views of places around the world intended as vues d?optiques, which were published in various places during the last half of the 18th century, including Paris, Augsburg and London. He was also known for his portraits.Probst came from an extended family of printers, whose businesses can all be traced back to the publishing firm of Jeremias Wolff (1663-1724). After Wolff's death his firm was continued as ?Wolff?s Heirs? by his son-in-law Johann Balthasar Probst (1689-1750). After Probst?s death in 1750, his descendants divided the business and published under their own imprints: Johann Friedrich Probst (1721-1781), Georg Balthasar Probst (1732-1801) and Johann Michael Probst. Another part of the Wolff-Probst firm was acquired by the Augsburg publisher Johann Georg Hertel (1700-1775), whose son Georg Leopold Hertel had married a sister of the Probsts. In the next generation, Georg Mathäus Probst (d. 1788), son of Georg Balthasar Probst, also became an engraver of portraits and views.

        Fünfte Folge von Unterschiedlichen Gegenden ALTER GEBAEUDE bestehend in 24 Blatt.

      Wien. Kupferstecherakademie.(um 1760). Moderne Mappe. Komplette Folge mit 24 Blatt, bzw. hier 26 Blatt ORIGINAL - RADIERUNGEN. Titelblatt ( Nr. 1) und 25 Blatt in diversen Größen , 7,5 x 19 cm; 9 x 9 cm. und ähnlich. Die Radierungen dürften wohl auf seiner einjährigen Reise nach Rom (1763/64) endstanden sein, da diese Alterthümer von und um Rom sowie Von Tivoli u.a Gegenden enthalten. Alle Blätter unter Passepartout. Ursprünglich waren die Radierungen auf einem oder mehreren Bogen gedruckt worden. Franz Edmund Weirotter (* 29. Mai 1733 in Innsbruck; † 11. Mai 1771 in Wien) war ein österreichischer Landschaftsmaler und Radierer. Franz Edmund Weirotter verlor mit sieben Jahren seine Eltern und wurde von einer Tante in Innsbruck bis zu seinem 14. Lebensjahr erzogen. In dieser Zeit lernte Weirotter das Malen und Kopieren von Gemälden, wobei sein erster Kontakt zur Malerei beim Innsbrucker Franz Michael Hueber geschah.[1] Von 1751 bis 1755 ist sein Aufenthalt an der Wiener Kunstakademie belegt. Anschließend arbeitete er für Kunsthändler und verschiedene Auftraggeber. Während seines ersten Paris-Aufenthalts (1759–1763) machte er die Bekanntschaft mit Johann Georg Wille. Die freundschaftliche Verbindung mit Wille und die Schulung in dem Künstlerkreis, der sich um diesen gebildet hatte, führte zu einer Wende in Weirotters Schaffen. Wille ließ in der freien Natur zeichnen, um das Auge für Landschafteindrücke zu schulen und empfänglich zu machen für die Schönheiten der Natur. Diese Zeichnungen benutzte er später für Radierungen. Dabei verzichtete Weirotter auf dokumentarische Treue, anders als die Vedutisten, zugunsten der Einbindung der Architektur in die Landschaft. Ein Stipendium der königlichen französischen Akademie ermöglichte Weirotter einen einjährigen Aufenthalt in Rom (1763–1764). Wille gab ihm Empfehlungsschreiben an Johann Joachim Winckelmann und Anton Raphael Mengs mit auf den Weg, die ihm Eingang in die tonangebenden deutschen Künstlerkreise verschafften. Die Kontakte zu den französischen Künstlern ergaben sich über die „Academie de France à Rome“. Während seines Italien-Aufenthaltes besuchte Weirotter auch die Umgebung Roms und Tivolis sowie Livorno, Viterbo und Florenz. Während seines zweiten Paris-Aufenthaltes (1764–1767) befreundete sich Weirotter mit Jacob Matthias Schmutzer, einem anderen österreichischen Wille-Schüler. Als Schmutzer als Leiter der 1766 neugegründeten Kupferstecher-Akademie nach Wien ging, sorgte er für eine Berufung Weirotters als Professor des Landschaftszeichnens. Weirotter sollte den Unterricht in der freien Natur übernehmen und die Schüler im Zeichnen und Radieren von Landschaften unterweisen. Versand D: 6,00 EUR 18.

Aber sein durchaus mystischer Inhalt ist höchst unklar [...] Ich erinnere mich für keine vor dem Wellingschen Werk erschienene alchemistische Schrift, daß in ihr die feurigen Wasser unter Beilegung einer solchen Bedeutsamkeit vergeführt wären. Aber in später veröffentlichten alchemistischen Büchern sind sie als etwas für die Hermetische Kunst besonders Wichtiges behandelt." (siehe: Ketmia Vere "Compaß der Weisen") - Nach Karl R.H.

        An Astronomical Diary, or, an Almanack for the Year of Our Lord Christ, 1760

      Printed for D. Henchman, J. Edwards, M. Dennis, J. Winter, T. Leverett, and S. Webb, Boston 1760 - 12 leaves sewn in self-wrappers, which are soiled and chewed up along edges and corners. About a quarter of the last page is wanting, losing the tail end of the after-effects of Wolfe's capture of Quebec, which is reported in full, and much of a sea engagement off Cadiz under Boscawen. The botttom corner of the front page is wanting, affecting a few words in the astrological table at the bottom of the second page. Roger Sherman of Connecticut was the only founding father to have signed all the four great papers of the new country, the Continental Association, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution. He appears as a poet here, with thirteen stanzas on the French and Indian War, the first on the title-page and the others at the heads of each month's table. This rare almanac deserves restoration. The only copy to come up for auction in recent decades went for $1700. Size: 12mo [Attributes: First Edition]

        Veduta del Palazzo fabbricato sul Quirinale per le Segreterie de brevi e della Sacra Consulta.

      Italy 1760 - Etching with engraving for the "Veduta di Roma", 405 x 615 mm., Rome edition, third state with artist's address and price. Occasional slight browning. The Palazzo della Consulta was only a recent addition to baroque Rome when depicted by Piranesi, having been erected in the 1730s. It was designed by Ferdinando Fuga for Pope Clement XII to house the Papal secretariat of the main council of state, the Sacra Congregazione della Consulta. However, it subsequently passed through many manifestations, at the turn of the century housing the Prefecture of Rome, after Italian unification becoming the residence of Prince Umberto I, and by the turn of the next century it was home to the Foreign Ministry. In the 1950s, it took on its current role as the Constitutional Court of Italy. The top of the facade is dominated by the large sculptural coat of arms of the Corsini family of Clement XII, as also seen at the Trevi Fountain. F.737; H.22; W-E.175

        A new map of Great Britain corrected from the observations communicated to the Royal Society at London. By John Sexex F.R.S. 1714.

      1760 - London: Thomas Bowles, John Bowles & Son, and Robert Sayer, c.1760. Coloured. Two sheets conjoined, total 960 x 660mm. Repairs to folds. A large map of England, Wales and Scotland, with an ornate title cartouche featuring a portrait of Queen Anne, the Royal Arms and a scene of Hercules fighting the Hydra. Originally issued in 1708, it is one of the first maps to use the name 'Great Britain' after the Act of Union of 1707. It was first published by the partnership of Parker and Senex, then also with John Mexwell by 1711. By 1714 Parker had dropped out, so his name was removed from the imprint (when the map appeared in Senex's 'English Atlas'0, as did Maxwell's by 1720. In 1728 Senex became a Fellow of the Royal Society (F.R.S). This last state was published about twenty years after Senex died, still with the 1714 date and portrait of Queen Anne. Despite the long printing history this map is quite uncommon: such large-format maps are notoriously hard to store and handle, so are usually damaged. SHIRLEY: Price 2, state 6 of 6.
