        DISCURSO HISTORICO JURIDICO DEL ORIGEN, FUNDACION, REEDIFICACION, DERECHOS, Y EXENCIONES DEL HOSPITAL DE SAN LAZARO DE LIMA.

      Lima: Oficina de los Huerphanos, . 1761 - [34],272pp. Several errors in pagination. Small quarto. Contemporary vellum with pigskin ties, lettered on spine. Very minor soiling, but generally quite bright and fresh internally. Near fine. The first edition of this interesting medical work. The work refers to the history and foundation of the Hospital de San Lazaro (founded 1563), which was devoted to "take [in] the leprous who are not slaves." It provides a complete description of the relations between the Church and the Hospital, as well as medical data about leprosy and its spread. Curiously enough, chapter six is dedicated to bullfighting in Peru, presumably due to the fact that bullfighting was a way of financing the Hospital's expenses. Only a handful of copies on OCLC. SABIN 7462. MEDINA, LIMA 1169. PALAU 34802. OCLC 14313147.

        An Unfortunate Mother's Advice to her Absent Daughters; in a Letter to Miss Pennington

      London: Printed by S. Chandler, and sold by W. Bristow and C. Etherington, York,, 1761. Octavo (207 × 120 mm) Newly bound in late eighteenth-century marbled paper wraps. Half-title bound in, signed in the edition on the last leaf. Somewhat browned, but sound. This first edition of three in the same year is decidedly uncommon, ESTC lists just a dozen copies, six of them in the UK. What little is known of Lady Pennington is drawn from the present work, "a curious combination of conduct manual and scandalous memoir" (ODNB). She married Sir Joseph Pennington of Water Hall, Yorkshire, in 1746, and the couple separated some twelve years later for reasons not made entirely clear. It seems that Lady Sarah attributed the rift to her publicly coquettish behaviour, Sir Joseph, backed by eighteenth-century law, denied his wife access to her daughters and attempted to deprive her of a small inheritance, reducing to "the expedient of communicating with her daughters through the highly public form of a published letter … Her defensive tone and language of injured innocence reflect that of scandal memoirists such as Laetitia Pilkington, and like her, Pennington attributes much of her misery to being privately virtuous but publicly coquettish, and thereby leaving herself open to wilful, malicious misconstruction". It is remarkable that in spite of the social disgrace of her separation, and the fact that she published an account of the scandal, she died with a reputation for virtue and injured innocence, rather than that of a sexually fallen woman deserving of such deserts. On her death in 1783 The Gentleman's Magazine, in a prominent example, remarked on her "extraordinary abilities … piety, charity and benevolence, united to that patient and unreserved resignation with which she sustained a series of very severe and uncommon afflictions" (GM, LIII, 2, p. 978).

London: Printed for W. Sandby, 1761. First edition. "Mordant, of whose life nothing is known, makes the usual excuse for issuing his book, though why an excuse should be necessary puzzles me; there was no recent good book on the subject, although Mr. Lawrence had in some measure treated of it before him. Mordant admits that Lawrence was a very able man to have handled the subject in a full and general way and to advantage, but his reflections and observations were too few and concise. Mordant cast his own book in alphabetical form, and includes trees, animals, crops, building, &c., making an effective and useful dictionary for landowner and steward alike. The second volume contains a large number of diverse tables for ready-reckoning areas, timber, board measure, &c., and a comprehensive set of specimen documents like leases, re-leases, and so on."-Fussell, II, p. 51. Fine set of a scarce book, with the signature of "Mr. Lewis Borthwick, 1791" on front paste-down of Vol. I and on first title. .

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

      T. Osborne [etc], London 1761 - Four volumes, octavo, with a number of oval portraits of naval figures, and six good folding engraved maps by Thomas Jefferys (Europe, Africa, Madagascar & Zanzibar, Asia, North America, South America); a fine crisp set in a handsome contemporary calf binding, spines gilt in compartments between raised bands, red edges. Naval history. 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 19th 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 seen on examples of the book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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 19th 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 seen on examples of the book.

        Strive not Tragedy nor Comedy to Engross a Garrick, who to your Noblest Characters does Equal Honour

      Published by R. H. Laurie; 53 Fleet Street, and Bowles & Carver, London 1761 - One of the most famous portraits of the actor David Garrick by Sir Joshua Reynolds. David Garrick (1717-1779) was perhaps the most influential actor in the English theater. He successfully took on all aspects of theatrical production, including actor, manager, playwright, publicist and theatre advocate. He displayed an amazing range by convincingly playing parts in every genre from comedy to tragedy, history to farce. From 1747 until his retirement in 1776, he was the manager of Drury Lane, where he initiated many improvements: he introduced concealed stage lighting, removed spectators from the stage, and cultivated a naturalistic style of acting. Garrick was acutely conscious of the value of pictures as advertisements. He sat for every painter of note, many of whom are now little more than names. He was painted in oils and in watercolours, drawn in pencil and in pastels, modelled in wax and in terracotta; his likeness even appeared on medals, Wedgewood china, and playing-cards. This portrait by his friend Reynolds demonstrates in a mildly humorous way the actor's talents and character; posed between Tragedy and Comedy Garrick is depicted the master of both. Garrick's broad smile, and Tragedy's melodramatic stance, note the dagger at her waist, favor Comedy. Reynolds' painting was a huge public success and inspired many prints and paintings, pirated prints of the image even made their way to the streets of Paris. The popularity of this image is a testimony to Garrick's fame and to Reynolds' talent. (University of Florida website, Penny) An interesting derivative of this scene is Shakespeare Nursed by Tragedy and Comedy , a beautiful stipple engraving based on a painting by Romney.

        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 mottled calf, spines ornately gilt in compartments between raised bands (slightly worn), 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'.

      1761. Canonibus Traduntur. Romae, Expensis Jo: Baptistae Novelli, 1761. 2 parts in one volume. 348 & 307pp. Large 4to. Contemporary vellum binding (some light foxing throughout). Edges stained dark blue. Pope Benedict XIV (Prospero Laurenzo Lambertini - 1675-1758) was Pope from 1740 onwards. The Catholic Encyclopedia says: "Benedict XIV is best known to history as a student and scholar. Though by no means a genius, his enormous application coupled with more than ordinary cleverness of mind made him one of the most erudite men of his time and give him the distinction of being perhaps the greatest scholar among the popes... A temporal sovereign Benedict governed the States of the Church with wisdom and moderation and introduced many reforms for the purpose of diminishing abuse and promoting the happiness and prosperity of the people... In purely spiritual matters the influence of Benedict left a lasting impression on the entire Church and its administration. His Bulls and Encyclicals which have played such an important part in defining and clarifying obscure and difficult points of ecclesiastical law, were learned treatises full of wisdom and scholarship... In order that the clergy should not be deficient in ecclesiastical and historical science, and that they might not lack opportunity to profit by the intellectual progress of the period, he founded at Rome four academies for the study of Roman antiquities, Christian antiquities, the history of the Church and the councils, and the history of canon law and liturgy. He also established a Christian museum, and commissioned Joseph Assemani to prepare a catalogue of the manuscripts in the Vatican Library, which he enriched by the purchase of the Ottobonian library containing 3,300 MSS of unique value and importance... To his subjects Benedict was an idol. If they complained at times that he wrote too much and governed them too little they all agreed that he spoke well and wittily, and his jokes and bon mots were the delight of Rome... Great as a man, a scholar, an administrator and a priest, Benedict's claim to immortality rests principally on his admirable ecclesiastical writings."
