        Histoire des Philosophes modernes, avec leur Portrait gravé dans le goût du Crayon...Histoire des Mathematiciens

      Frontis., title, ten plates, eight vignettes, all finely engraved in the "crayon manner" and printed in sepia. 1 p.l., xxviii, 93 pp. Large 4to, cont. cat's paw polished sheep, spine gilt, contrasting leather lettering piece on spine. Paris: François, 1761. First edition, Volume 5, of this magnificently illustrated series published over a period from 1761 to 1773. Each of the eight volumes were issued independently. This is one of the "luxury" copies in which the frontispiece, title, plates, and vignettes are all printed in a most handsome sepia (regular copies were printed in black). This book is most remarkable for the illustrations by Jean Charles François, who is credited with discovering the "crayon method" of engraving, in which the engravings imitate chalk drawings (see Hind, A History of Engraving & Etching, pp. 287-88). The scientists for whom Savérien has provided biographies are Copernicus, Viète, Brahe, Galileo, Kepler, Fermat, Cassini, Huygens, La Hire, and Varignon. Very fine copy from the Starhemberg Bibliothek with their stamp. .

        Candide, ou l'Optimisme, traduit de l'allemand de Mr. Le Docteur Ralph, Seconde Partie,

      [Aux Délices], [Holland] 1761 - TP + [i]-[ii] = Introduction + [1]-98 + [99]-[100] = Table des Chapitres, small Octavo. Second Edition.Second Edition of the Second Part of Candide, the second edition of a spurious work first published in 1760 that purported to be the "second part" of Candide. Although no one seriously considered Voltaire (who had been instantly identified as the author of the "first part") to be the author of this work, it was reprinted at least fourteen times in the next 37 years. (A complete bibliographical description of these printings of the "second part" is available online but ABE has rejected posting that URL - please contact me directly for full details.) Compigneulles was originally suspected of being the author of "part two," but he consistently denied this. More recent scholarship points towards the abbe Henri-Joseph Dulaurens as the actual author of the piece. The original confusion arose because one of Voltaire's supporters, in order to protect him, implausibly and mischievously, ascribe the book to Thorel de Campigneulles, a journalist of impeccably orthodox views - which he vigorously denied. Campigneulles seems to have taken his revenge a few years later by publishing (also anonymously), Candide en Dannemarc (Candide in Denmark), a continuation of the work which he had been falsely accused of writing, It was, in effect, Candide Part Three. ¾ leather with brown speckled boards. There are four raised bands with gilt banding on the spine along with the title in gilt on a red field. A tight, clean and bright copy of this interesting spurious addition to the Voltaire "canon" and an important work for understanding the complexity and confusions that always surrounded his writings and his reputation. A quintessential work in the history and development of the French Enlightenment. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

        The Theory of Evidence

      1761. [Bathurst, Henry]. The Theory of Evidence. Dublin: Printed for Sarah Cotter, 1761. [iv], 123, [9] pp. Includes one-page printer advertisement. Octavo (7-1/2" x 5"). Contemporary calf, rebacked in period style, raised bands and lettering piece (reading incorrectly "Gilbert Theory") to spine, corners and hinges mended. A few shallow scuffs and some minor stains to boards. Moderate toning to text, light foxing in places. Later owner signature (of C.H. Buffett) to front pastedown, three other signatures (one erased, one illegible and one of W.C. Johnson) to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. A nice copy of a scarce title. * Reissue of the only edition, published the same year in London. Published anonymously, this concise treatise is a good summary of the field as it stood in the mid-eighteenth century. It was later incorporated into Buller's treatise on nisi prius. An interesting feature is the Analysis and Index, which arranges the book's contents in a tree diagram with page references. OCLC locates 12 copies in North American Law libraries, 5 of the Dublin issue. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:378 (1).

        ATLAS GE´OGRAPHIQUE ET MILITAIRE OU THE´ÂTRE DE LA GUERRE PRE´SENTE EN ALLEMAGNE [bound with] JOURNAL DE LA GUERRE EN ALLEMAGNE, DEPUIS L'ANNÉE MIL SEPT CENT CINQUANTE-SIX, JUSQU'EN MIL SEPT CENT SOIXANTE-UN

      Paris: Chez Lattré Graveur, 1761. Hardcover. 127 x 83 mm (5 x 3 1/4"). 1 p.l. (title), followed by plates, then 2 p.l., 64, [4], 4 pp. (last eight pages ads). Two separately published works bound in one. Fine contemporary burgundy morocco, covers with triple fillet border, flower cornerpieces, flat spine gilt in compartments with central floral sprig and volute cornerpieces, black morocco label, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved title page by Choffard, engraved legend and list of battles, and 17 ENGRAVED MAPS, all with neat hand coloring of bodies of water and other elements. Moreland & Bannister, p. 73. Leather on front cover slightly crackled and with a smattering of tiny dark freckles, second work with occasional mild foxing or minor smudges, otherwise a very fine copy, the maps quite fresh and clean, and the handsome binding bright and with only minor wear. This pocket atlas and its accompanying journal record the major battles in the Seven Years' War (1756-63) up to 1761. Sometimes called the first "world war" because hostilities spilled over into colonial possessions on other continents, this conflict pitted Frederick the Great of Prussia and his ally, Great Britain, against Austria, France, Russia, Sweden, and Saxony. While Frederick handled the warfare on the Continent, his British allies focused on their overseas possessions, particularly in America, where the French and Indian War resulted in Britain's gaining control of Canada and Florida. The maps and the journal, whose entries were taken from contemporary newspaper accounts, allowed interested persons to follow the progress of the war. In the words of Moreland & Bannister, Giovanni Antonio Rizzi-Zannoni (1736-1814) "was a noted astronomer, surveyor and mathematician of great versatility. . . . The maps in his various atlases were beautifully engraved, showing minute detail and embellished with elaborate cartouches." The present atlas appears infrequently, and the combination of both works is quite rare.

      [Paris: Académie Royale des Sciences], 1761. FIRST EDITIONS . Hardcover. Swedenborg on Manufacturing Iron, and Women and Children Making Paper. 413 x 286 mm (16 1/4 x 11 1/4"). 2 p.l., 196 pp.; 41 pp. (without section title); 1 p.l., iv, 150 pp. Three works bound in one volume. FIRST EDITIONS. ESPECIALLY ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY MARBLED CALF, raised bands, spine heavily gilt in compartments with unusual centerpiece composed of shell forms and drawer handles, and with intricate volute cornerpieces, red morocco label, blue paste paper endpapers. WITH 26 OFTEN VERY PLEASING ENGRAVED TECHNOLOGICAL PLATES: nine in the first work, three in the second, and 14 in the last, one of these double-page. Brunet II, 618-19. Corners a little mashed, small chip to tail of spine at front joint, but IN VERY FINE CONDITION, the binding lustrous and otherwise with no significant wear, the margins especially ample, and the plates and text unusually fresh, clean, and bright. This is part of the "Description des Arts et Métiers," a series of 75 treatises published in more than 100 parts that, together, formed the outstanding 18th century work on handicrafts. Issued over a period of almost three decades, these works contain often splendid engravings of the industrial contexts of artisans making paper, candles, hats, playing cards, iron, sugar, wool, and many other products. Published at roughly the same time as Diderot's great "L'Encyclopédie," these volumes are larger than those making up that better-known publication, and the cuts here are even more striking that those in the Diderot, which includes some plagiarized illustrations taken from the present series. This ambitious undertaking, sponsored by the Académie Royale des Sciences of Paris, "constituted an effort to present a scientific picture of all the industrial processes employed in France in the 18th century. Since no corresponding survey was carried through in any other country at so early a date and since this one in France anticipated but briefly the industrial changes commonly associated with the phrase, 'the industrial revolution,' these volumes are worthy of particular notice. In a sense, they portray the maxima of skills attained at the end of a social period, the age of the handicraftsman." (Cole and Watts) Work on "Arts et Métiers" was begun under the auspices of scientist René Antoine Ferchault de Réaumur (1683-1757) and was brought to publication under the editorship of the multitalented French physician, botanist, and naval engineer Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau (1700-82), who also contributed a number of articles. The first work is a continuation of the explication of ironworking begun in a previous volume. This fourth section contains Emanuel Swedenborg's treatise on iron, covering forges, furnaces, and mines, translated from the Latin by M. Bouchu. Better remembered today for his religious visions and writings on spiritual matters, this is an unexpected context for Swedenborg (1688-1772), but he was the Assessor of the Royal College of Mines in Sweden, where the mining of copper and iron ore was a major part of the economy. The second work in this volume discusses the making of candles out of tallow, from the rendering of the animal fats to the dipping of the "chandeliers," as these candles were called (to distinguish them from wax candles, called "bougies"). One of the most eagerly sought after works from the "Arts et Métiers" series, the final work here details the complicated process of making paper, which demanded much in the way of labor, equipment, and facilities, including a water mill. It is one of the crafts where female (and child) workers are shown to be a significant part of the labor force.

"Detaillierte theoretische Betrachtung des grossen Kameralisten über Ökonomie und Technologie der Fabriken und Manufakturen" (Sachse). Justi fordert "the creation of a `Manufacturhaus` to accelerate the sale of the finished products of the industrial class. Taking the ideal of economic self-sufficiency as his point of departure, he is more interested in effecting centralized control of industry than in commercial expansion."

Wax, it seems, cannot just be left to bees--there are many steps in making the proper sort of wax for a given purpose, be it ordinary candles, large ceremonial candles, torches for use as beacons, or seals for letters or legal documents. The production of vellum, or parchment, is a malodorous and generally unpleasant process that changed little in the centuries before or after this was published. In the introduction to "The Art of the Pin-maker," editor Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau expresses wonder at the low cost of pins, given the very complicated process required to produce them. He discusses how the various steps can be broken up into a "division of labor"--one of the earliest uses of this phrase that was to be so significant in subsequent works on economics. Despite being notably more cumbersome, anchors seem to be easier to manufacture than pins. This is part of the "Description des Arts et Métiers," a series of 75 treatises published in more than 100 parts that, together, formed the outstanding 18th century work on handicrafts. Issued over a period of almost three decades, these works contain often splendid engravings of the industrial contexts of artisans making paper, candles, hats, playing cards, iron, sugar, wool, and many other products. Published at roughly the same time as Diderot's great "L'Encyclopédie," these volumes are larger than those making up that better-known publication, and the cuts here are even more striking that those in the Diderot, which includes some plagiarized illustrations taken from the present series. This ambitious undertaking, sponsored by the Académie Royale des Sciences of Paris, "constituted an effort to present a scientific picture of all the industrial processes employed in France in the 18th century. Since no corresponding survey was carried through in any other country at so early a date and since this one in France anticipated but briefly the industrial changes commonly associated with the phrase, 'the industrial revolution,' these volumes are worthy of particular notice. In a sense, they portray the maxima of skills attained at the end of a social period, the age of the handicraftsman." (Cole and Watts) Work on "Arts et Métiers" was begun under the auspices of scientist René Antoine Ferchault de Réaumur (1683-1757) and was brought to publication under the editorship of the multitalented French physician, botanist, and naval engineer Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau (1700-82), who also contributed a number of articles.

        INSTRUCCION PARA GRAVAR EN COBRE, Y PERFECCIONARSE EN EL GRAVADO Á BURIL, AL AGUA FUERTE, Y AL HUMO, CON EL NUEVO METHODO DE GRAVAR LAS PLANCHAS PARA ESTAMPAR EN COLORES, Á IMITACIÓN DE LA PINTURA;Etc

      Joachin Ibarra, Madrid 1761 - Ex-libris de tampón, 16 h, más 230 págs y 12 grabados de buril plegados. Rueda se extiende, entre otros, en el manejo del buril y describe con todo detalle "la disposición de los dedos ( ) para realizar una burilada extremadamente fina, al principio aligerando la mano, más gruesa en medio con poco que se eleve, y delgada dejándola caer otra vez ( ) maniobra muy esencial para la bondad del grabado e inteligenca de las sombras". La elaboración de las aguas, los cabellos, las nubes o los vestidos merecen también su atención y pormenorizadas explicaciones. Se trata de un referente en el arte del grabado y de uno de los primeros manuales escritos en castellano que recoge fórmulas de Bosse: "La primera suerte de agua fuerte se compone de vinagre, cardenillo, sal armoniaco, y sal común.", ".La segunda se hace de vitriolo, salitre, y algunas veces alumbre de roca, que destiladas juntas, componen el agua fuerte de separar, que ordinariamente emplean los Afinadores, para dividir el oro de la plata, y cobre". A pesar de que el grabado se considera un arte menor, gozó en la España de la segunda mitad del siglo XVIII de un auge considerable, pues en realidad era a la pintura lo que la prensa al libro. La Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, a la que el autor dedica la obra, había contribuido activamente a la formación de grabadores notables y los manuales dirigidos a los profesionales comenzaron a multiplicarse. La Instruccion de Manuel de Rueda, sin embargo, continuó siendo la obra de referencia en la materia. CCPB 69251-4. Palau 281031. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

To which is added a state of the present general traffick of the whole world; describing the manufactures and products of each particular nation: [etc.] The second edition, with large additions. By Wyndham Beawes, Esq; his Britannick Majesty's consul at Seville and St. Lucar

      London: London: printed for R. Baldwin at the Rose, and S. Crowder and Co. at the Looking-Glass, in Pater-Noster-Row. M.DCC.LXI. [1761], 1761. Book. Very Good. Leather. 2nd Edition. Description: Folio (14¾ × 9½ in): vii, [3], 898, [20] p. Modern half leather over cloth. · Condition: Light to moderate foxing and toning.

A massive work covering every subject of law important to the merchant, including ships and shipping, insurance, bills of exchange, money, banking, bankruptcy, piracy, prizes, and topics in public international law that affect trade. In addition to the legal topics, the Beawes wrote detailed descriptions of the commerce of particular countries and regions, including their customs and products. Although aimed at the lay merchant in addition to the lawyer, Beawes supported his discussion with citations to legal treatises and case decisions. Kent in his Commentaries wrote that the courts accepted Beawes' opinions as evidence of the custom of merchants in several cases. Holdsworth considered the book so important that he gave a table of its contents in an appendix to volume 12 of his History of English Law. The work went through six editions in London by 1813 (the last edited by Joseph Chitty) and was reprinted five times in Dublin as well. · Title continued: "... and tables of the correspondence and agreement of the European coins, weights, and measures, with the addition of all others that are known. Extracted from the works of the best writers both at home and abroad; more especially from those justly celebrated ones of Messieurs Savary; improved and corrected by the author's own observations, during his long continuance in trade. The whole calculated for the use and service of the merchant, lawyer, senator, and gentleman." · References: Johnson 10 (6 copies); S&M 1:518(7); Bridgman 15; Worrall 229; Kent, Commentaries 3:126; Marvin 104; Holdsworth, HEL 12:384; Holdsworth, Sources 213; ESTC T136427..

        Förslag huru en hamn wid Limnhamnen nära in til Malmö stad skulle kunna inrättas.

      Sthlm, P. Hesselberg, 1761. 4:o. 22 s. & 1 utvikbar träsnittskarta med typtryckt text & 1 utvikbar träsnittsplansch med typtryckt text. Tagen ur band. Med samtida bläckpaginering. Delvis lätt bruntonad. Bra ex.. Kartan avbildar det föreslagna området "väst-sudväst om Limhamns kalk bruk och sju sextondels mil ifrån Malmö fästning" och planschen är en ritning av Bagers förslag till Malmös nya skeppsbro. Bägge planscherna är signerade C. F. Beckerstedt. Haqvin Bager (1711-82) var spannmålshandlare i Malmö och kombinerade sin handel med jordbruk och rederiverksamhet. I sina skrifter rörde han sig inom ekonomins alla områden. Trots sina folkupplysande avsikter fick Bagers skrifter inte någon större betydelse, kanske delvis på grund av hans mindre lyckade försök att skriva rimmad vers, vilka väckte allmänt åtlöje. Under många år propagerade Bager för anläggandet av en ny hamn i Malmö, först - som här - i Limhamn, men senare i området mellan citadellet och stadsbefästningen. 1775 hade Bager förlikats med tanken på en utbyggnad av den befintliga hamnen
