        THE CITIZEN OF THE WORLD; OR LETTERS FROM A CHINESE PHILOSOPHER, RESIDING IN LONDON, TO HIS FRIENDS IN THE EAST

      Printed for J. Newbery, London 1762 - Two volumes. v, [ie vii],[1],286;[2],238,[16]pp. 12mo. Contemporary tree calf, spines richly gilt, gilt labels. Bookplate and early ink paraph on second binder's blank in first volume, spine extremities a bit worn, with minute chip at crown of one joint and slight cracking to joints, a few small patches of rubbing to one spine, otherwise a very good copy, wanting the final blanks, but internally bright and near fine. First edition, the issue with the integral title - another issue features cancel titles with 'Printed for the Author' in the imprint. As usual, page vii in the first volume is numbered 'v'. The 'i' in the catchword on II:11 is out of alignment, not dropped. Goldsmith's letters appeared anonymously in THE PUBLIC LEDGER beginning in late January of 1760, and concluded in August of the following year. Their considerable popularity, and their publication in book form, were significant elements in Goldsmith's early ascent from Grub Street to what Scott describes as "the freedom of the precincts of the inner sanctuary of letters." ROTHSCHILD 1021. SCOTT, pp. 71-4. WILLIAMS, p.123. ESTC T146035.

        Gulf Stream Map - Atlantic or Western Ocean

      American Philosophical Society, Philadelphia - Map. Engraving. Uncolored. Image measures 12" x 20". Page measures 21.25" x 17.5" Map. Engraving. Uncolored. Image measures 12" x 20". Page measures 21.25" x 17.5". This late-18th-century map illustrates the phenomenon of the Gulf Stream as named and first charted by Benjamin Franklin in 1762. A thick band of engraved lines visualize the ocean current flowing from the Gulf of Mexico up the Eastern seaboard and then east to the coast of Africa, labelled as "Azanhaga." Jones' map builds on Franklin's initial example by providing contextual information that demonstrates the impact of the Gulf Stream on transatlantic shipping and travel, such as different paths indicating the "usual courses" between North America and Europe. Scattered arrows indicate current and wind directions in accordance with a compass rose just below the Gulf Stream. The map is in very good condition with minimal wear to center fold, light foxing and some staining present. Repair to lower right margin does not effect image. Benjamin Jones was an engraver in Philadelphia active between 1778 and 1815. This map was published by the American Philosophical Society, which endeavored to promote the distribution of scientific and cultural knowledge among the newly independent colonies.

        Commentarii absolutissimi ad ii. iii. iv. vi. et viii. libros Codicis Justinianei

      excudebat Thomas Alphanus, 1762. Due volumi di cm. 36, pp. (8) 420; (8) 421-872. Primo frontespizio in rosso e nero. Leg. coeva in piena perg. rigida con titoli in oro al dorso. Alone all'angolo basso dei due volumi, marginali tracce d'umidità, fioriture e bruniture sparse, qualche trascurabili segno di tarlo limitato al margine di poche cc. Nel complesso esemplare discreto e genuino. Hugues Doneau (1527-91), celebre giureconsulto francese, fu uno dei maggiori rappresentanti della scuola culta; insegnò a Tolosa, Ginevra, Heidelberg, Leida ed Altdorf. Doneau (o Donello), schematicamente e frettolosamente accostato a Cuiacio ed agli esponenti fautori del metodo esegetico finalizzato alla storicizzazione del diritto romano, si distingue invece da questi per una forte impronta sistematica che lo colloca in un contesto di minore discontinuità rispetto al mos italicus ed alla tradizione di diritto comune. Quest'edizione raccoglie tutte le lecturae dell'A. sopra il Codice giustinianeo. Non comune e ricercato. Cfr. Kvk; non in Sapori. .

Wegehaupt I, 691. - Erste und einzige Ausgabe des äußerst seltenen frühen Bilderbuchs mit 24 Kinder- und Familienszenen in chronologischer Reihenfolge und gestochenem Text. - "Das wohl schönste Kinderbuch Gablers sind jedoch die Skizzen physischer und moralischer Gegenstände. Wann der heute nur noch in vier Exemplaren bekannte Kupferband zuerst erschien, läßt sich nicht ermitteln" (Horst Kunze, Historische Kinderbücher, Band 25, S. 4). Heute sind ca. 19 Exemplare in Bibliotheken nachweisbar. Die erste Kupfertafel zeigt eine Kinderstube, danach werden die vier Elemente veranschaulicht: Kinder beim Drachensteigen, bei der Gartenarbeit, beim Spielen am Wasser und beim Betrachten eines Feuerwerks. Darauf folgt eine Darstellung der fünf Sinne in Familienszenen, danach die Tageszeiten im Dorf, die vier Lebensalter und schließlich Armut, Reichtum, Gesundheit, Krankheit, Tod und Begräbnis. Die realistischen Szenen aus dem bürgerlichen Alltag erinnern an Chodowiecki, sie sind aber durch das große Format und die klaren Aussagen besonders für den Anschauungsunterricht von Kindern geeignet. - Zur aktuellen Forschung über den Nürnberger Maler und Kupferstecher Ambrosius Gabler (1762-1834) siehe Heidrun Ludwig, Nürnberger naturgeschichtliche Malerei im 17. und 18.

        Émile ou de l'éducation. 4 Tomes.

      A la Haye, Chez Jean Néaulme, (Recte: Paris, Duchesne), 1762. 8vo. Bound in four beautiful uniform contemporary full mottled calf bindings with gilt title-and tome-lables to richly gilt spines. Gilt line-border to edges of bords. Lovely patterned edges. Spines and some corners lightly and expertly restored, barely noteable. Occasional very light brownspotting or dusting, but overall very nice and clean. Printed on good, heavy paper, with wide margins. An excellent copy. (2), VIII, (2), 466, (6) pp. + (4), 407, (1) pp. + (4), 384 pp.; (4), 455, (1) pp. + 5 engraved plates (used as frontispieces and facing p. (141) of vol. 1 respectively). The first plate "Thétis" in the variant state without title (as described in MacEachern). Fully complete, exactly as described in MacEachern. With all the misprints: Vol. 1: 88 as S8, 443 as 433, 465 as 46; vol. 2: 356 as 256, 357 as 257; vol. 3: 383 as 363; vol. 4: 336 with first 3 broken (according to McEachern this is just the case in some copies). With the usual cancelled leaves: Vol 1: Av + B4; vol. 2: H3 + N6 (called I6). The final leaf ends with "FIN" and has no grapes (MacEachern: "The grapes appear in three different forms..."). ¶ The very scarce actual first edition, being the rarer, more sought-after, nicer 8vo-edition (as opposed to the much more common 12mo edition, which was printed about simultaneously, but which seems to have appeared later), the 8vo format also being the one preferred by Rousseau himself and the format in which he wanted his great work to appear.This magnificent work constitutes the climax of Rousseau's genius as well as the most important work on education since Plato. In Émile, Rousseau poses an entirely new approach to education and the upbringing of children. His thoughts were exceedingly controversial, the work was burnt by the executioner immediately after its first appearance and Rousseau had to flee the country due to a warrant for his arrest. The printing history of "Émile" is extremely complicated and has been a matter of intense dispute for many decades. Until Maceachern's bibliography from 1989, the edition that has now been established as the "Second Paris octavo" (MacEachern 4A) was generally considered the first printing of the work, but there is no longer any dispute about the fact that the present edition is in fact the actual first (1A). The first edition appeared in both 8vo(1A) and 12mo(1B), and it seems to be generally accepted that the 8vo-edition was distributed first, but that parts of the 12mo-edition may have been in printing a bit earlier. Rousseau himself seems to have preferred the 8vo-edition and wished for his great work to appear as this form first ("The question of the format gave rise to some dissension, for while Rousseau felt that the work was more suited to the octavo format, Duchesne preferred to print a duodecimo and only a limited number of the more expensive octavo. Rousseau finally agreed to Duchesne's plan with reluctance, declaring that in his opinion Duchesne was committing an error of judgment and that the octavo would certainly be the more sought after of the two formats." - MacEachern, pp. 18-19). Rousseau himself was more involved in the coming-to-be of "Émile" than perhaps any other author has been in any other book. Throughout the entire process there were a large number of misunderstandings between himself and Duchene which more than once endangered the printing and publishing of this seminal work, and which has contributed greatly to the extremely complicated bibliographical data of it. In fact, up until very late in the process, Rousseau did not believe that the work was actually going to be finished and it took several instances of mediation between the two to keep the work on tracks. Finally, however, the work was a reality, and with it one of the greatest works of Western culture had been born.Rousseau's "Émile" constitutes the most significant modern treatise on the education of man, surpassed only by Plato's "Republic". The comparison with Plato is all the more apt, seeing that both works grow out of and are meant to remedy lacunae in the political philosophy of their authors.The conclusion to Rousseau's work on the social contract, also written during Rousseau's stay in Montmorency, had pointed to a predicament of political thought: that only if man were himself naturally inclined to freedom, could he make use of political freedom. "Émile" is the analysis of the conditions, under which a child can develop into a free human being. As such, it presents the conclusion to Rousseau's earlier works on inequality, political freedom and servitude.The paradox of Émile is that, while the development of human nature must be natural, if the child is to develop into a free human being, steering that development in the right - that is, free - direction requires constant intervention which, moreover, must be hidden from the child. Rousseau details this intervention in his analysis of the five stages in the education of the child, covering the period from birth to the age of 25.Being one of the most influential thinkers of the 18th century, Rousseau is considered one of the indirect causes of the French Revolution. In Rousseau one certainly finds one of the most influential spokesmen for 18th century thought, and it is primarily the thoughts of him and Voltaire that are put into action with the Revolution."The first and last of these (i.e. Héloise and Émile), with their sentimental expression of deism, gave much offence, and Rousseau, like Voltaire, was forced to flee to Prussia. Restless and locally unpopular, he fled again to England, where he had a great welcome. Hume, who had offered him asylum, looked after him patiently..." (PMM 207, Printing and the Mind of Man).The totalitarian tendency of Rousseau's philosophy of education has been noted by a number of philosophers, in recent times most famously, Karl Popper.McEachern: 1A

        Principes du Droit Politique [Du Contract Social]

      Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, tan leather label. A fine, fresh, wide-margined copy in a very well-preserved binding. Half morocco case. FIRST EDITION, type B, the definitive authorized version. Observing in his opening words that "man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains," Rousseau offered this work as a yardstick with which to judge existing governments. He argued that the central problem is to "find a form of association which can defend and protect with all the power of the community the person and possessions of each associate, and by which each person unites himself with all, but only obeys himself and thereby remains as free as before." "The Contrat Social remains Rousseau's greatest work . . . his fundamental thesis that government depends absolutely on the mandate of the people, and his genuine creative insight into a number of political and economic problems, give his work an indisputable cogency. It had the most profound influence on the political thinking of the generation following its publication . . ." (Printing and the Mind of Man 207). Before publication Rousseau expressed dissatisfaction with the title-page and objected to its vignette in particular. The publisher offered an alternative title-page with a large vignette and with the phrase "Du Contract [sic] Social" moved to the half-title. At the same time, Rousseau suppressed a concluding passage on civil marriage. The requested changes were made, and thus only a handful of copies survive with the type A title-page. David Hume wrote to Rousseau on the publication of this work, "Of all the men of letters in Europe, since the death of Montesquieu, you are the person whom I most revere, both for the force of your genius and the greatness of your mind." The book remains the bible of popular sovereignty, egalitarian government and, above all, the preservation of individual liberty within civil society. The Contrat Social was an immediate sensation, and both the original publisher and several pirates brought out additional printings in 1762. Fine copies of the first edition in contemporary bindings are now scarce. Printing and the Mind of Man 207.

        Shipping Manifest; Partly printed document completed in John Hancock's own hand

      Boston 1762 - 9" x 4.5" partially printed bill of lading document filled in by John Hancock for his ailing uncle, Thomas Hancock. Edge chips and light fray to an otherwise well preserved specimen of handwriting by this bold signer of the Declaration of Independence.John Hancock (Jan 23, 1737 - Oct 8, 1793) served as the president of the Second Continental Congress and was the first and third Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He is immortalized in American history as the first patriot to sign the U. S. Declaration of Independence in his large, flourishing signature. So distinctive, that the term "John Hancock" has become a synonym for one's signature. At the time of completing this document, Hancock was working for his ailing uncle at the House of Hancock, a trading company which brought manufactured goods from England and exported whale oil, fish and rum. In 1763, the year following this document he became a full partner in the firm and upon his uncle's death in 1764 he inherited the business as well as thousands of acres of land and several slaves. The slaves were freed per his uncle's will and there is not indication that John ever bought or sold slaves."Shipped by the Grace of God, in good Order and well Condition'd, by Thomas Hancock by order of Sir Jeffrey Amherst in and upon the good Ship called the Britton whereof is Master.George Wilkinson and now riding at Anchor in the Harbour of Boston and by God's Grace bound for New York." Countersigned by shipmaster: "Geo: Wilkinson". This original shipping Document concerns a large cargo of foodstuffs being sent from Boston to New York to feed the British troops stationed there during the French and Indian War. Listed items include; beef, pork, bread, flour, butter, rice, vinegar, rum and wine. Sir Jeffrey Amherst was the Crown Governor of Virginia residing in New York at the time. He was credited as the architect of winning Britain's "Seven Year's War" and became the first Governor General of territories which became Canada. "There, I guess King George will be able to read that without his spectacles!" - J. Hancock upon signing the Declaration of Independence.

        Antique Print-JOHN-MATTHEW-LUKE-MARC-EVANGELISTS-FRESCO-Zampieri-Gregory-1762

      1762 - Antique print, titled: 'S. Johannes - S. Matthaeus - S. Marcus - S. Lucas' - Scarce plate showing the the four evangelists; John, Matthew, Marc and Luke. After one of the frescoes Domenico Zapieri painted for the Abbey of Grottaferrata (near Rome). This Abbey was founded by St. Nilus of Rossano and St.Bartolomeus in 1004.
