        Vollständige Abhandlung von denen Manufacturen und Fabriken. Erster Theil welcher die allgemeinen Grundsätze und Betrachtungen in sich enthält. - Zweyter Theil, welcher alle einzelne Manufacturen und Fabriken nach der Eintheilung ihrer Materialien abhandelt.

      2 Tle. in 1 Band. 12 Bll., 240 S.; 8 Bll., 562 S., 14 Bll. Lederband d. Zt. mit Rückenverg. Humpert 3825; Sachse 261; Menger 51. - Beide Bände in erster Ausgabe; es gibt auch Ausgaben des ersten Bandes mit Datierung 1758, die völlig identisch gesetzt ist, aber einen etwas aufwendigeren Buchschmuck (Vignetten) aufweisen. Diese vorliegende falsch datierte und die auf "1758" datierte Ausgabe erschienen wohl parallel, die falsch datierte dürfte allerdings wohl etwas früher erschienen sein - in der Literatur wird sie auch auf 1757 datiert, was den Fehler in der Jahreszahl auch logischer erklärt. Die beiden Vorworte sind vom 4., bzw. 5 Oktober 1757. - Während der "dänischen Episode" (Justi stand 1757/58 fur ca. 1 Jahr in dänischen Diensten) entstanden. "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." (ESS VIII, 508). - Etwas bestoßen und beschabt, oberes Kapital mit kleiner, fachmännischer Reparatur. Es fehlen beide Rückenschilder. Kleiner alter Namenszug auf Titel (Johann Evangelist Görz?). Gering gebräunt unf stockfleckig, teils auch schwach wasserrandig. Tls. braunfleckig, letztes Blatt mit kl. Fehlstelle im Rand.

ART DE L'EPINGLIER [bound with] (ANCHOR MAKING). RÉAUMUR, [RENÉ-ANTOINE FERCHAULT DE]. FABRIQUE DES ANCRES

      [Paris: Académie Royale des Sciences], 1761. FIRST EDITIONS . Hardcover. 413 x 286 mm (16 1/4 x 11 1/4"). 1 p.l., 113 pp.; 1 p.l., 52 pp.; 77 pp. (without section title); 54 pp. (without section title). 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 23 OFTEN VERY PLEASING ENGRAVED TECHNOLOGICAL PLATES: eight in the first work, two in the second, seven in the third, and six in the last. Brunet II, 618-19. Minor worming on front board, a hint of rubbing to joints and extremities, but A VERY FINE AND TALL COPY, especially bright, clean, and fresh inside and out. These works describe the arts of making wax, producing vellum, making pins, and forging anchors. 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.

First published in 1713, it went through several printings. An abridged edition by Richard Grey was published in 1730 that went through four other editions in 1732, 1735 and 1743. Gibson, an English divine and jurist, was chaplain and librarian to the archbishop of Canterbury. He went on to become the Bishop of London. In addition to Codex Juris Anglicani he produced several important works, including editions of the Chronicon Saxonicum (1692) and the collected works of Sir Henry Spelman (1698).

        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. Lacks the preliminary imprimatur leaf. · Comments: Second edition. 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

        Essai Sur L-Étude de la Littérature

      First edition of the authors first book. 8vo. xxxii, 159pp. All original blank leaves present, two before the title and four after last leaf that has text. "From the Author" in Gibbon's own hand to blank opposite title page. This has offset lightly to title page. Bound in contemporary full brown speckled calf, worn at extremities, rebacked with original spine laid down. Original spine darkened as if scorched. Outer margins of e/ps. and title browned, some occ. foxing. Inner hinge visible but sound. The whole contained in a purpose made clam-shell marbled box with leather lettering piece. Norton 1. Though not published until 1761, Gibbon wrote this first work, in French, in 1758 when he was 21. He let Dr. Maty of the British Museum read it and on gaining approval revised and completed it in 1759. It was only published due to his fathers urging. The dedication to his father is both sincere and touching. The book, mostly due to being written in French, was more successful abroad than in England. The publishers covered the costs of producing the book and took the profits, Gibbon retained the copyright and received a number of free copies. According to Norton 42 copies were made available to Gibbon. 21 copies were presented by the author to several eminent characters in England and France, one was presented to the Duke of York and 20 were given by the author to his friends in Lausanne. This copy is one of these 42.

        Le Voyageur philosophe dans un Pays inconnu

      Amsterdam,: 'depens de l'editeur,', 1761.. Two volumes, duodecimo, with bookplates from the 'Bibliotheque de Monspey'; elegant volumes in mottled sheep , with banded and gilt panelled spine, some wear to front joints, and chipping at extremities of the spine. First edition of a scarce lunar utopia. This early tale of space-travel is in fact a wonderful Enlightenment document of faith in the perfect society.Little is known about the author, but his work is an extended meditation on Enlightenment 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 dÈbarquer 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 SÈlÈnopolis displays the standard traits of symmetry and order, which are chronicled with uncritical sincerity by the awe-struck visitor: 'La comparaison de l'Ètat social et de l'Ètat 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 SiËcle des LumiËres parfaitement rÈalisÈ' (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'agrÈment, l'utilitÈ & le bonheur de l'humanitÈ, dans le dessein d'en enrichir ma Patrie'.Negley, 1141.

        Divine Conduct Vindicated, or The Operations of God shown to be the Operations of Wisdom: in the substance of two discourses, preached at Haberdashers-Hall, London, March 29, 1761; occasioned by the decease of the Rev. Mr. Samuel Davies, M.A. and president of the College of Nassau-Hall in New-Jersey, February 4, 1761 - in which are contained some memoirs of Mr. Davies, and some extracts from his Letters

      London: J. Buckland -, 1761. (PRINCETON UNIVERSITY) First edition, state unknown. 8vo. 31, [1, ad for books "Published by the Rev. Mr Thomas Gibbons"] pp. Bound in late 19th century blue quarter calf and marbled boards, binding rubbed, small piece from A2 costing a few words. Felcone 99; ESTC N47977 . Gibbons (1720-1785), an Independent minister, wrote an important biography of Issac Watts, kept an entertaining diary of his active London life, and wrote poetry and hymns. Like the present volume, many of his publications were funeral sermons - this one preached on the death of the Reverend Samuel Davies (1723-1761), a Presbyterian minister from Delaware. Davies was instrumental in the founding of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). He spent eleven months in England raising money to build Nassau-Hall, the first permanent building on campus. Both Davies and Gibbons were prominent dissenters from Anglican orthodoxy and it is likely that they would have met during Davies' fund-raising mission to England. They evidently carried on a correspondence, which Gibbons quotes from in his sermon. Davies served as the fourth president of the college until his early death at 37. ESTC lists three 1761 editions - one with p. 31 paginated (as in this copy), one without pagination, and a third with a variant imprint for sale in America

        D. JUSTINIANI INSTITUTIONUM LIBRI QUATUOR. THE FOUR BOOKS OF JUSTINIAN'S INSTITUTIONS, TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH WITH NOTES, BY GEORGE HARRIS, LL.D

      London: J. Purser, 1761. Rebacked with red spine label. Wide margins. Paper generally toned throughout the text. Old paper repairs to the final page of the index. Covers with blind-stamped designs. Covers and corner rubbed and worn. Book-plate of "F.S. Key, Georgetown-Columbia" on front pastedown. Notation in neat ink on title-page "Price 15/, 1814". Pencil notations in margins of the text in the same hand. "F.S. Key" in ink on rear cover, inverted. We believe this to be the book of Francis Scott Key, who lived in Georgetown, (District of) Columbia. We believe the price and date, as well as other notations are also in his hand, as is the ink signature on the rear cover. See old catalogue entries for the book laid-in at the front. Key (1779-1843) was an American lawyer. He watched the shelling of Ft. McHenry the night of September 13-14, 1814 and penned the now famous poem upon seeing the flag still waving the next morning. 1814 is also the same year we believe he bought this book. Justinian 1 was Byzantine Emperor from 527-565, the last Roman Emperor to speak Latin as his primary language. By the 6th century, Roman law was in jeopardy of total collapse due to its shear size. Justinian proceeded to codify the Law, of which the "Institutions" are an integral part. One of the important works in the history of jurisprudence. It was first published in 533. (i-xv), 1-73;1-121; 1-100; 1-92; 1-11; index (1-4). A very unusual association copy.. Second Edition. Full Contemporary Calf. General Moderate Cover Wear/No Jacket. Quarto.
