        Recherches sur l'origine du despotisme oriental

      Geneva: [N.S.] 1761 - First edition. 17 cm, 12mo. Collated: xxxii, 435 pp. Full period mottled calf. Gilt spine and rule. All edges washed red. Marbled end pages. Hardcover. Good binding and cover. Tails of boards starting. Minor edge wear. Clean, unmarked pages. Nicolas Antoine Boulanger was an Enlightenment French philosopher, cartographer, and engineer. Boulanger had some fluency in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Syriac, Chaldean, and Arabic. Intended as an introduction and key to Montesquieu's L'Esprit des Loix, Boulanger's theological-political treatise was edited and first published posthumously in 1761 by the Baron d'Holbach. This, his most famous work, Research into the Origins of Oriental Despotism, speculates on the origin of human societies. The main theme described aptly by Paul Sadrin, is that "Man, after escaping the Flood, was terrified.Everything was gradually spoiled by forgetfulness and imposture - the forgetfulness of most men and the imposture of a few leaders. Religion, which had only been the memory of the disaster and the commemoration of the "renewed world," became the Revelation." This was in Boulanger's eyes the worst of crimes, as the Revelation deprives man of his humanity and gives birth to the cruelest of despotisms, the theocratic regime, of which God is the monarch and the monarch is God.What matters to Boulanger is to expose the direct relationship between theocracy and civil despotism." (p. 36-37) Sadrin, Paul. "NICOLAS-ANTOINE BOULANGER (1722?59)". The Yale University Library Gazette 71.1/2 (1996): 32?42. The value to the modern reader is perhaps greater in what it says about how Boulanger, and those he influenced, thought about how society is constructed and the destruction of freedom within society.

        An Account of the War in India, between the English and the French, on the Coast of Coromandel from the Year 1750 to the Year 1760. Together with A Relation of the late Remarkable Events on the Malabar Coast, and Expeditions to Golconda and Surat

      London: Printed for T Jefferys, 1761. xxxiii+270+[2]+15+[1]+48+xix+[1] pages 14 of 18 engraved plates, maps (many folding) and index. Quarto (10 1/4" x 8 1/4") in original leather binding. First edition.Richard Owen Cambridge was a British poet. He was educated at Eton and at St John's College, Oxford. Leaving the university without taking a degree, he took up residence at Lincolns Inn in 1737. Four years later he married, and went to live at his country seat of Whitminster, Gloucestershire. In 1751 he removed to Twickenham, where he enjoyed the society of many notable persons. Horace Walpole in his letters makes many jesting allusions to Cambridge in the character of news-monger. His chief work is the Scribleriad (1751), a mock epic poem, the hero of which is the Martinus Scriblerus of Alexander Pope, John Arbuthnot and Jonathan Swift. The poem is preceded by a dissertation on the mock heroic, in which he avows Cervantes as his master. The satire shows considerable learning, and was eagerly read by literary people; but it never became popular, and the allusions, always obscure, have little interest for the present-day reader. He made a valuable contribution to history in his Account of the War in India on the Coast of Coromandel from the year 1750 to 1760 (1761). He had intended to write a history of the rise and progress of British power in India, but this enterprise went no further than this one work, as he found that Robert Orme, who had promised him the use of his papers, contemplated the execution of a similar plan. The Works of Richard Owen Cambridge, includes several pieces never before published. It contains an Account of his Life and Character by his Son, George Owen Cambridge (1803), the Scribleriad, some narrative and satirical poems, and about twenty papers originally published in Edward Moore's paper, The World. His poems are included in Alexander Chalmers' English Poets (1816.Condition:Previous owner's name in neatly written dated 1806 on front end paper with his book plate on front past down with his library stamp.

        Elogio storico alle gesta del Beato Odorico dell'ordine de' Minori Conventuali con la storia da lui dettata de' suoi viaggj asiatici.

      Presso Antonio Zatta,, In Venezia, 1761 - Cm. 30, pp. viii, 152. Grande antiporta ripiegata raffigurante il Beato Odorico nell'atto di battezzare, arma al centro del frontespizio, una tavola ripiegata f.t. inc. in rame raffigurante l'Arca del Beato Odorico, in fine grande carta geografica dell'Asia (50 x 63) datata Venezia 1760 ed un albero genealogico ripiegato dei re Ottogari. Legatura ottocentesca in mezza pelle con punte con titoli impressi a piatto anteriore e dorso. Esemplare marginoso e genuino, senza difetti, fatto salvo per un paio di piccole fenditure alle carte. Impressa su carta di ottima qualità. Il Beato Odorico Mattiuzzi (ca. 1265) fu uno dei più illustri missionari dell'Ordine, viaggiando sino all'Estremo Oriente poco dopo Marco Polo, recandosi in Asia Minore, Mongolia, Cina e India. Fu infatti il primo europeo dopo Marco Polo che menzionò e descrisse Sumatra. Al suo rientro a Venezia Odorico redasse la cronaca dei suoi viaggi chiamandola "Itinerarium", di questo codice si conoscono 73 manoscritti redatti in latino, francese e italiano. "Nel 1318 si imbarca a Venezia per Costantinopoli. Di qui attraversa il Mar Nero e prosegue lentamente per via di terra raggiungendo il Golfo Persico, dove torna a imbarcarsi verso l'India. Giunto a Tana, presso Bombay, ritrova e prende con se' i resti di quattro frati francescani, massacrati nel 1321. Risalito in nave, è il primo europeo a raggiungere l'Indonesia, e di qui infine arriva in Cina, sbarcando a Canton. Ma la sua meta finale è Khanbaliq, la capitale dell'immenso impero, dove arriva nel 1325, dopo sette anni di viaggio." Opera attribuita alternativamente a Giuseppe Vanni ed a Fr. Benofi. Cfr.

      S.l., 1761, in 12, de 259pp. 2ff. de table - suivi de : Candide ... Seconde partie, S.l. 1770, de 130pp., soit 2 parties en 1 vol. demi-veau moucheté XIXe genre ancien, dos orné, tr. rouges, qq. très rares rousseurs, bon exemplaire. Très rare édition remaniée et augmentée de la 2e partie. Candide a paru en 1759 et la seconde partie a été rajoutée à partir de 1761. Cette édition de 1761 a été remaniée par Voltaire, en particulier le chapitre XXII. La seconde partie est de nos jours attribuée à Dulaurens. La paternité de cette Seconde partie fut dévolue à Thorel de Campigneulles, mais immédiatement démentie par ce dernier. Faute d'attribution sérieuse, le nom de Campigneulles est resté accolé à cette 2e partie mais des études subséquentes ont démontré que l'abbé H.J. Dulaurens était l'auteur le plus probable de ce texte. cf. J. Rustin Les suites de Candide au XVIIIe siècle, in Studies on Voltaire and the 18th cent., 1972, p.1395. ¶ Bengesco n°1443 (avec la seconde partie) - Edition non mentionnée par Morize - Pas dans le cat.

      Vienna February 2nd 1761 - Copper engraving (Very Good, uncut margins, remainder of other platemark in the lower blank margins) 58 x 44 cm (22.8 x 17.3 inches). An extremely rare 18th century broadside in Old Slavic Church Cyrillic, printed in Vienna, showcases an icon, made by the bishop of the Serbian Orthodox church, Arsenije Radivojevi_, for the only Serbian church in Slovakia. This extremely rare broadside is a copper engraved copy of an Orthodox painted icon, and showcases an image of young Virgin Mary, accompanied by her parents St. Anna and St. Joachim to the presentation to the temple to St. Zacharias, followed by a group of angels. The interior of the temple is decorated with Baroque rocaille ornaments and an image of the Annunciation in the upper part. The text below is written in the old Slavic Church Cyrillic script and is ornated with an image of the Serbian church in Kom‡rno in todayÕs Slovakia. The painted icon was ordered by a bishop of the Serbian Orthodox Church in the Eparchy of Buda, Arsenije Radivojevi_ (1759-1769) for the decoration of the Serbian church in Kom‡rno, consecrated to the Presentation in the Temple. The Eparchy of Buda (Budapest) in the 18th century covered the Serbian Othodox church on the territory of Hungay, which included parts of todayÕs Croatia, Slovakia and Czech Republic. The beginnings of this only Serbian Orthodox Church in Slovakia go to the year 1756, when the bishop of the Eparchy of Buda, Dionisije Novakovi_, started building the church. In 1759 Radivojevi_ took over the patronage over the construction, which was finished in 1770. The church was destroyed in a fire and it was rebuilt between 1849-1851. As mentioned in the text below, the engraving was made in Vienna, on February 2nd 1761. We can assume, the engraver could not read the Old Slavic Script, since some of the letters were misinterpreted. The print is extremely rare. We could not find any references to it, nor any examples in the institutions. The image below is one of the earliest views on the Orthodox Church in Kom‡rno. SEE OUR WEB-SITE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

        Cosmologische Briefe über die Einrichtung des Weltbaues

      Augsburg: Eberhard Kletts Wittiv, 1761. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (19.4x12.0cm). xxviii, 318 pp., 1 folding printed table. Text with minor browning, first free endpaper with old ownership entries. Contemporary papercard board, gilt, somewhat rubbed. ----Houzeau-L. 8886. Poggendorff I, 1355 ; Goed. IV 1, 479, 1. Ziegenfuss II, 11. - The scarce first edition of Lambert's sensational "Cosmological Letters", his most important astronomical work, in which he to a large extent fore-shadowed the documentation of the basic features of the universe that Herschel later carried out. The work became very popular and was translated into French, Russian, and English, and it was later re-written and published as "Systeme du Monde" in Berlin, 1770. "Of special interest among Lambert's astronomical writings - apart from applications of his physical doctrines - are his famous Cosmologische Briefe über die Einrichtung des Weltbaues" (Augsburg, 1761). Not familiar with the similar ideas of Thomas Wright (1750) and with Kant's "Allgemeine Naturgeschichte und Theorie des Himmels" (1755), Lambert had the idea that what appears as the Milky Way might be the visual effect of a lens-shaped universe. On this basis he elaborated a theory according to which the thousand of stars surrounding the sun constituted a system. Moreover he considered the Milky Way as a large number of such systems, that is, a system of higher order... Only when William Hershel systematically examined the heavens telescopically and discovered numerous nebulae and "telescopic milky-ways" did it become obvious that Lambert's description was not mere science fiction but to a large extent a bold vision of the basic features of the universe" (Scriba in D.S.B. VII:598). --- Kant's mentor (Martin Knutzen) died in 1755, three years before the pre-critical project unfolded. But Kant still had the chance of meeting kindred spirits. One of these was the great philosopher and mathematician Johann Heinrich Lambert, whom he admired a great deal. Finally he had encountered a thinker who appreciated both the scientific and metaphysical perspective, who worried about their tensions, and who was searching for a truce. In his "Cosmologische Briefe..." (Cosmological Letters on the establishment of the universe), Lambert worked on the same topic as Kant had worked on in his earlier Universal Natural History. The tasks and results of both works resemble each other, in so far as they were both proposals of integrating Newtonian physics into a larger framework, and they both contained a theory of the dynamic constitution of the universe. Furthermore, as Kant's scientific works should be viewed under the perspective of his general philosophical outlook, so must Lambert's work in physics and astronomy be seen in relation to his general philosophical outlook and his perpetual quest for introducing mathematical exactness into the sciences. "Lambert's efforts to improve communication and collaboration in astronomy were noteworthy. He promoted the publication of astronomical journals and founded "Berliner astronomisches Jahrbuch oder Ephemeriden". Many of the articles that he contributed to it were not published until after his death... He also favored the founding of the Berlin observatory. These suggestions, in line with Leibniz' far-reaching plans for international cooperation of scientific societies, inaugurated a new period of scientific teamwork." (D.S.B., VII:598). Very Good.

        Petition to the Lord High Chancellor, dated 17th Febry. 1761, relating to a claim by a gunner for a share of the prize money gained by a British private Man of War.

      1761 Six folio leaves, written on 9 pages, the final 3 left blank; some chipping to leading edges with no loss of text, some sl. tears into central fold with no loss, sl. browning. Signed by Fountaine Cooke, solicitor of Clements Inn, and also to His Majesty's Mint. 32.5 x 20.5cm.Written on behalf of William Watson of Deptford who, from 1758, served as a gunner on board the 'Duke of Marlborough' , Captain Nathaniel Tanner, a private man-of-war, mainly owned by merchants of Deptford. The petition is a plea for a judicial enquiry to determine whether the owners have unlawfully withheld monies due to the gunner under the terms of his employment.This may be a copy rendered to the ship's owners, and is interesting as the owners' comments are noted in the margin. The Officers, Sailors and Landmen had entered into a written contract with the owners and captain which set out the rewards to which the crew would be entitled and 'of the amount of the sales and produce of such prize or prizes as should be taken by the said ship during the cruise and to one full and equal moiety or half part of head money and Ransom Bills that should be received ... and to one equal moiety of half part of the net produce of all such of the enemies' ships merchandizes, gold, silver, jewels, treasure, effects , goods, things of every sort & kind whatsoever that should be taken by the said ship & condemned as legal prizes after the charge of victualling & manning the said ship & of condemning prizes and Eight Pounds per centum for the Captain for his proportion should first be deducted ... and the rest divided amongst the crew, the gunner taking seven shares'. The recital notes that that ship cruised from September 1758 to November 1759 and took 'several prizes to the value of £30,000 of thereabouts'. The gunner's seven shares amounted to c£500 which the owners refused to pay, citing that he 'did misbehave himself' and that no threat of violence was used to make him relinquish his claim. The final three pages request that a Court of Equity summons the owners to swear on oath as to the facts of the case. The marginal notes record that some cargoes were sold by auction at Garraways Coffee House, and also at Gibraltar, and that the gunner's share of the prize might have been £70 if he had not forfeited the same. A note at the foot of the penultimate page records that the 'Managers gave him 2 guineas out of compassion as being in distress'. At Kew (Ref: HCA 26/9/137) and dated May 26th 1758, there is a record of a judgement of the High Court of Admiralty in respect of this ship, perhaps to award prize monies for an earlier voyage (the Captain and owners are the same, but not the gunner). This judgement records that the Duke of Marlborough was of 450 tons, had a crew of 220, and was armed with 36 carriage and 20 swivel guns.

        Le Voyageur philosophe dans un Pays inconnu aux Habitans de la Terre. Multa incredibilia vera, Multa credibilia falsa, par Mr. De Listonai.

      Amsterdam: 'depens de l'editeur,', 1761. Two volumes, octavo, titles printed in black and red; contemporary mottle,d calf, spines ornately gilt in compartments between raised bands, tan morocco title and number labels (number on volume two missing). First edition of a scarce lunar utopia. This early tale of space-travel is also a wonderful Enlightenment document of faith in the perfect society.Little is known about the author, but his work is an extended meditation on the themes of society and the natural. Interestingly, the narrator seeks to establish his credentials as man of the world and experienced traveller by claiming to have journeyed to many parts of the world, including a couple of abortive attempts 'de débarquer dans les Terres Australes'. Given this pedigree, it can come as no surprise to the reader that the Voyager so easily journeys to the moon, nor that he is capable of giving such a wonderfully thorough account of Selenite society.The lunar city Sélénopolis displays the standard traits of symmetry and order, which are chronicled with uncritical sincerity by the awe-struck visitor: 'La comparaison de l'état social et de l'état naturel: dans l'absence du mien et du tien, il n'y a pas de vice, pas de crime, pas de crainte de la mort... . C'est le Siècle des Lumières parfaitement réalisé' (Hartig & Soboul, Pour une histoire de l'utopie en France). Having discussed their morals, advances in science and all-round goodness, the traveller sadly takes his leave, happy only in that all of the notes he has taken will be of such inestimable use 'pour l'agrément, l'utilité & le bonheur de l'humanité, dans le dessein d'en enrichir ma Patrie'. Bands, slightly worn.

        Lives of the Admirals, and other eminent British Seamen; containing their personal histories, and details of all their public services...

      London: T. Osborne [etc], 1761. Four volumes, octavo, with a number of oval portraits of naval figures, and six folding engraved maps, contemporary calf binding, spines gilt in compartments between raised bands, red edges. Third edition: a really attractive set of a good early edition of this standard work, a comprehensive naval history of Great Britain first published in the 1740s, which remained in print in various forms until the late nineteenth century. Campbell was quite admired by Dr. Johnson. He told Boswell that he once drank thirteen bottles of port at a sitting (hard to imagine him standing), and Johnson commented approvingly that 'he has not been in the inside of a church for many years; but he never passes a church without pulling off his hat. This shows that he has good principles.'Most copies of Campbell's Lives were read to bits, to judge by the poor condition usually ecountered. The maps by Thomas Jefferys comprise the following: Europe, Africa, Madagascar & Zanzibar, Asia, North America and South America. Fine crisp set.
