        An introduction to the law relative to trials at nisi prius.

      First Irish edition, following the London first of the previous year, which in turn was based on Buller and Bathurst's 1760 Institute of the Law Relative to Trials at Nisi Prius. The materials that formed the basis of this work, attributed here to "a learned Judge," were originally compiled by Earl Henry Bathurst for his private use; his labors were adapted and incorporated into a more widely published form by Sir Francis Buller. The sections cover actions founded upon torts and upon contracts, injuries affecting personal property and real property, criminal prosecutions relative to civil rights, "evidence in general," and "General Matters relative to Trials." The Introduction was published by => Elizabeth Watts, later Lynch, the widow and successor of bookseller Richard Watts; the volume opens and closes with advertisements for other legal works either at the press or just published by Watts. This edition is uncommon: ESTC and WorldCat locate only eight U.S. institutional holdings.

        Figures of the most Beautiful, Useful, and Uncommon Plants described in The Gardeners' Dictionary. To which are added, Their Descriptions, and an Account of the Classes to which they belong.

      London: printed for the Author, and sold by John Rivington, A. Millar, et al., [1755-] 1760. - 2 volumes. Folio (17 2/8 x 11 inches). Engraved vignette on dedication leaf, 300 fine hand-colored engraved plates (including two folding with small closed tears near the gutter), many printed in green or sepia, Thomas Jefferys, and J. Mynde, after Georg Ehret (16), Johann S. Müller, Richard Lancake, J. Bartram, and W. Houston, woodcut headpiece and initial (some minor offsetting). Contemporary half-calf, marbled paper boards (extremities scuffed with some surface-wear). Provenance: Near contemporary ownership inscription of Ben Palmer on each title-page. " the most distinguished and influential British gardener of the eighteenth century" (DNB). First edition, and an attractive and unsophisticated copy, originally published in 50 parts of 6 plates each. Although Miller's plan had originally been to "exhibit the Figures of One or more Species of all the known Genera of Plants", he had ultimately been obliged by the expenses of production to "contract his Plan, and confine it to those Plants only, which are either curious in themselves, or may be useful in Trades, Medicine, &c., including the Figures of such new Plants as have not been noticed by any former Botanists" (Preface). Preceded by his celebrated "The Gardeners Dictionary" (which ran to eight editions (1732-1768) during Miller's lifetime his works were commended at the time for being ".drawn from nature in the best state of flowering, and for including illustrations of fruit and seed as they ripened" (DNB). In 1722 Miller was appointed by Hans Sloane and the Society of Apothecaries as gardener for their Physic Garden at Chelsea. A condition of Sloane's deed of conveyance of the garden to the apothecaries was that they present annually to the Royal Society fifty dried specimens grown in the garden in the previous year. This necessitated the continuous introduction of new plants, achieved only by Miller's wide correspondence: "from various parts of the world. Exchange with John Bartram of Philadelphia, a collector of plants in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware, and elsewhere, was particularly fruitful. Kalm [a student of Linneaus at Uppsala] observed that 'the principal people in the land set a particular value on this man' (Kalm, 111). The fourth duke of Bedford [to whom this volume is dedicated] employed him on a regular basis to visit Woburn and inspect gardens and hothouses and to prune the trees. These included many American conifers, and Miller approved introductions of alternative timber owing to the great quantity of oak needed by the Royal Navy. He also catalogued numerous American plants grown by the young Lord Petre at Thorndon, Essex. His advice was sought by the dukes of Richmond at Goodwood, where his suggestions for a flower border remain. The Society of Arts consulted Miller on agricultural matters, from winter feed for domestic animals in England to grapes suitable for the climate of South Carolina. On the latter Miller often consulted growers in both France and Italy, and he was a member of the Botanic Academy of Florence; from both countries he received seeds" (DNB). Like his father before him Ehret trained as a gardener, initially working on estates of German nobility, and painting flowers only occasionally, another skill taught him by his father, who was a good draughtsman. Ehret’s "first major sale of flower paintings came through Dr Christoph Joseph Trew, eminent physician and botanist of Nuremberg, who recognized his exceptional talent and became both patron and lifelong friend. Ehret sent him large batches of watercolours on the fine-quality paper Trew provided. In 1733 Trew taught Ehret the botanical importance of floral sexual organs and advised that he should show them in detail in his paintings. Many Ehret watercolours were engraved in Trew's works, such as ‘Hortus Nitidissimus’ (1750–86) and ‘Plantae selecta’e (1750–73), in part two of which (1751) Trew named the genus Ehretia after him. "During 1734 Ehret travelled in Switzerland and France, [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Contemporary mottled calf, richly gilt ornamented spines, with 2 red gilt lettered labels (3 vols. old spines laid down, the others rebacked matching the other vols.).

The birds are depicted in their natural surroundings, with charming backgrounds. This scientifically important work was written by one of the greatest connoisseurs of birds of the time. The work deals with 1336 species in addition to 150 "varieties" distributed over 115 genera, which are again grouped in 26 orders. Brisson did not use the binominal system and his systematical classification of the birds differed from that of Linnaeus, surpassing it and being less artificial.

        Ueber Nationalindustrie und Staatswirthschaft. Nach Adam Smith bearbeitet. Berlin: Heinrich Frölich, 1800-1804.

      - First edition of the chief work by A.F. Lueder (1760-1819), elaborating Adam Smith's doctrines in the Wealth of Nations. 'Lueder's first works were translations of newly published books on ethnology and travel journals. After that, stimulated by Adam Smith (1723–90) Lueder decided to concentrate on political economy without losing sight of his two other interests, history and statistics. With his major book Ueber National-Industrie und Staatswirthschaft (On National Industry and State Economy, 1800–1804) Lueder was among the first to lecture on Smith’s doctrines in Germany. Hence he played an important role in the further development of British political economy in Germany, establishing a spirit of economic liberty. In comparison with the writings of Georg Friedrich Christoph Sartorius, another early follower of Smith at the University of Göttingen, Lueder gave a more detailed account of Smith’s labour theory of value. Lueder referred to most chapters of Adam Smith’s first two books of An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776). Quoting Smith, he emphasized that labour which produces materials is essential for the ‘physical comfort’ of any human being; also that labour constituted the area of ‘moral culture’ in human society (National-Industrie, vol. 1, p. 13). Based on these findings, Lueder noted that all social sciences had not yet discussed the contributions of the ‘fair sex’ to the wealth of society, even though women ‘are interwoven in all relations of the community in general’ (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 3 volumes, 8vo, xxxii, 462, [1]; viii, 623; viii, 1-518, 521-783 pp. (complete), contemporary half calf, slightly rubbed and corners a little worn, front joint of third volume starting but binding firm, decorative endpapers, small ownership stamps on free endpapers, isolated light foxing in third volume, otherwise clean and fresh, a fine set.

        Traité d'optique sur la gradation de la lumière

      1760 - XVIII-[2]-368 pages, 7 A Paris, de l'imprimerie de H.L. Guérin & L.F. Delatour, 1760, in-4, XVIII-[2]-368 pages, 7 planches dépliantes, veau tabac de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, double filet sur les coupes, tranches rouges, Seconde édition, posthume et augmentée, de l'Essai d'optique sur la gradation de la lumière, publiée avec un nouveau titre au sein des Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences et établie par son ami l'abbé Nicolas Louis de La Caille. Ouvrage d'une très grande importance, rédigé par le fondateur de la photométrie ; Bouguer fut le premier à pouvoir mesurer l'intensité de la Lumière. Dans cette édition, à laquelle l'auteur travailla jusqu'à la veille de sa mort, il présente pour la première fois son invention la plus importante : le photomètre, qui lui permit de mesurer l'intensité lumineuse du soleil et de la lune. "Bouguer's achievement was to see that the eye could be used, not as a meter but as null indicator, i.e, to establish the equality of brightness of two adjacent surfaces (.) In the latter part of the Essai, Bouguer published the second of his great optical discoveries, often called Bouguer's law : in a medium of uniform transparency the light remaining in a collimated beam is an exponential function of the lenght of its part in the medium" (DSB).

        Memorie spettanti alla storia, al governo, ed alla descrizione della Città, e della campagna di Milano, ne' secoli bassi.

Legatura 800esca m. perg. e angoli, titolo in oro su tasselli ai dorsi. Titoli a stampa rossa e nera con vignette inc., numerose testatine, iniziali e piccole incisioni n.t. Prima edizione di questa fondamentale celebre opera su Milano dalle origini fino al 1447 (morte del Duca Filippo Maria Visconti, col quale si estinse la dinastia). E' basata su antichissime cronache e documenti ed è corredata di complesive 81 tavole f.t. (compreso il ritratto dell'arciduca Pietro Leopoldo, cui l'opera è dedicata), molte ripieg., per lo più incise da Giulio Cesare Bianchi, raffiguranti antichità, oggetti d'arte, monumenti, chiese, palazzi e vari luoghi di Milano (nel vol. IX si trovano le due grandi carte: la pianta della città e la carta dei suoi dintorni). «Topografia, edilizia, idraulica, belle arti, lettere, monetazione, economia, commercio, agricoltura, industria, costumi pubblici e privati, genealogia, araldica, tutto insomma, ogni lato dell'intensa vita di una grande città per otto o nove secoli ha qui uno sviluppo narrativo secondo che l'ampiezza della cognizione storica lo richiede volta per volta, sì che più che una storia di Milano, abbiamo un ''De Rebus Mediolanensibus'' nel più ampio significato della parola» (cfr.

        Istruzioni Elementari per l'inderizzo de' giovani allo studio dell'Architettura Civile. (Con:) Istruzioni diverse concernenti l'officio dell'Architetto Civile.

      ove si tratta della misura delle fabbriche, del moto, e della misura delle acque correnti. dei ponti, e di pressoché ogni sorta di fabbriche ed ornamenti. Lugano, Agnelli, 1760 e 1766, - 4 volumi in-4 (2 di testo e 2 di tavole). Belle legature coeve in p. pelle marmorizz., titoli e fregi oro ai dorsi (qualche piccolo restauro), tagli dipinti. -Istruzioni elementari: pp. (8), 622, una tabella f.t.; antip. fig. e 103 tavole, di cui 15 ripieg., numerate 1-101 (ripetute nella numerazione le tav. II e XXIV). -Istruzioni diverse: pp. 324, (2) di errata; titolo inc. e 111 tavole su doppia pag. - Prima edizione dell'opera completa del Vittone (1705-1770), oggi giustamente considerato uno dei più validi esponenti del tardo Barocco italiano ed europeo, per la sua capacità di interpretare in modo originale gli insegnamenti di personalità quali Borromini, Guarini e Juvarra. I quattro volumi, destinati a stare assieme, si trovano abitualmente separati a causa degli anni intercorsi tra le due stampe: raro è trovarli cosi riuniti e in buone condizioni. Nei due trattati in esame, l'autore si propone di istruire i lettori nell'architettura civile (contrapposta a quella militare). Entrambi i testi partono dall'esposizione di questioni di geometria e misurazione degli edifici, e si soffermano poi sugli ornamenti, con particolare attenzione per gli ordini architettonici classici. Assai interessanti sono le prescrizioni sulla ''misura delle acque correnti'', l'estimo dei beni, la disposizione e la struttura di ogni sorta di fabbriche e dei loro arredi, compresi quelli ecclesiastici. Il vasto corredo illustrativo, inciso in parte da Belmond, Guarini e Bianchi su disegno dell'autore, comprende capitelli ed altri particolari architettonici, esercitazioni di prospettiva, figure geometriche, armi araldiche, corone e cartigli destinati alla decorazione, apparati effimeri, arredi sacri e altari, nonché sezioni, piante e prospetti di chiese, palazzi e altre costruzioni. Gli edifici rappresentati descrivono, oltre ad opere di maestri del Rinascimento e del Barocco, molte creazioni dello stesso Vittone: alcune di queste sono rimaste allo stato di progetto, altre sono state costruite. Buon esemplare, raro a trovarsi completo e in queste condizioni. Manca a Fowler. Cicognara 690. Schede Vesme III, 1100. Riccardi II, 624-25. Berlin Kunstbibl., 2635. Mostra del Barocco I, 57.
