Chippendale, Thomas
London: Printed for the Author, 1762. Third edition. 200 copper-plate engravings of furniture designs. Lacking engraved dedication leaf. 1 vols. Folio (18 x 11-3/4 inches). Full brown mottled calf gilt, spine gilt, new red and black morocco spine labels, turn-ins gilt, a.e.g. Rebacked. Some light traces of rubbing. Very good. Third edition. 200 copper-plate engravings of furniture designs. Lacking engraved dedication leaf. 1 vols. Folio (18 x 11-3/4 inches). The Best Edition. The third, and best, edition - with an additional 40 plates - of the highly influential furniture-pattern book by the London cabinetmaker, Thomas Chippendale, who was, in fact, the first English cabinetmaker to ever publish his designs. "His special claim for artistic fame is as a brilliantly original, innovative, and influential designer who also made masterpieces of furniture. His designs were plagiarized from at least the early Victorian period by the publisher John Weale, and more or less free adaptations from The Director have been a staple product of commercial furniture makers since the mid-nineteenth century" - ODNB This volume contains 200 plates. Plates 146-149 are mis-numbered 146, 146, 147, 149: this mis-numbering has been observed in three separate copies of the 1762 edition, though it is not listed in the bibliographies. The plates' images match the letterpress descriptions given. Brunet I, 1844; O'Neal 26; Berlin Catalogue 1227; Millard, British 15

Ozanne (N.P.)
ND 1762 Lyon. engraved title, engraved coat of arms, with engraved dedication to the Duc de Choiseul, 50 engraved plates (numbered in sequence as issued), final plate is folding, plain endpapers, original marbled paper over boards, later (1900s) mottled goat spine, raised bands down spine, no title piece to spine, good and clean internally. AJS: The attractive plates show various types of warship of the period along with an explanatory text. There was a second edition in 1770, however, this was issued without the coat of arms and dedication as the Duc de Choiseul, Minister of Marine, had been dismissed on 24th December, 1770. The edition offered here is undated but was published in 1762 and is now considered the best issue. It is certainly uncommon. The second edition (1770) was issued in a slightly larger page size, however, the plates are weaker. Polak, entry 7234: Confirms the above details. Witt Collection: The leaves 21, 26 and 49 contain an engraved text only, the rest have a vignette at the top, engraved text underneath. First state of the first edition. The first 20 plates show the different types of ships from a 1st rate of 120 guns to a chebeck. [Attributes: First Edition]

Marpurg, Friedrich Wilhelm
Gottlieb August Lange, 1762. Hardcover. Large 8vo, old elaborately blind-tooled calf, good plus copy, some rubbing and wear to binding, slight loss to spine ends, minor ex-library marks: stamped "bookplate" on pastedown from Carnegie Institute of Technology (now CMU), ink stamp of that institution on title page, small ink stamp on rear pastedown, no other marks. Also laid in is a withdrawn slip from that institution. The first part is a second edition, revised and corrected, dated 1762; all the other parts are first printings, dated respectively 1757, 1758 and 1760, paginated continuously: 341 pp. and 29 copperplates of music notation (2nd part has 9, 3rd has 12, Anhang has 8). Rare in commerce and in institutions. Marpurg seems to have been independently wealthy, but contemporaries may have eschewed him because he was pompous and bombastic. Nevertheless, he is now known as the most important and influential German musical theorist of the 18th century, and his friendly associations with D'Alembert, Voltaire and Rameau certainly introduced a certain amount of French sensibility into German musical practice at the time. Scholars are still debating the influence Marpurg had on Bach's works, especially his fugues. A similar copy to this fetched close to 1000 Euros in 2009 at a Hauswedell and Nolte auction. Good.

Modern marble paper boards with a printed paper label on front cover with the text: 'Defensa, Capitulacion, Pérdida, y Rendicion de la Plaza de la Habana. La Habana, 1763'. Excellent condition.- Important publication of the letters from the Governor of Havana regarding the siege by the British. ‘On the morning of June, 6, 1762, the governor of Havana and captain general of Cuba, Juan de Prado, was awakened and summoned to the Morro fortress to take a look at something troubling that his lieutenant had sighted on the horizon. A small boat rowed Prado from the walled city to the entrance to Havana’s harbor, where he climbed the rocky promotory to the fort’s lookout point. Through a spyglass, he could see a large British fleet offshore, what one eyewitness described as “a forest of ships.” … It was without doubt a powerful armada coming to lay siege’ (E. E. Schneider,The Occupation of Havana: War, trade, and slavery in the Atlantic World, Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2018,p. 63). At first, Juan de Prado (1716–c.1770) did not believe that this imposing British force intended to attack Havana and, although he had arrived in Cuba in February 1761 as Governor and Captain General with express instructions from Charles III of Spain to prepare the island for such an attack, Havana was far from ready. The first of Prado’s letters in this collection, dated 7 June 1762 (the day after, therefore, the beginning of the siege) was written to Gabriel de … [Click Below for Full Description]

1762. Guilielmi Ballonii Medici Parisiensis celeberrimi, opera omnia in quatuor Tomos divisa, studio et opera M. Jacobi Thevart, Medici Parisiensis, digesta, denuo in lucem edita : cum præfatione Theodori Tronchin, in Academia Genevensi Medicinæ Professoris. BAILLOU (Guillaume de) Apud Fratres de Tournes, Genevæ, 1762, complet en 4 volumes en bel état (intérieur propre et complet). On y joint plusieurs feuillets manuscrits de l'époque (commentaires de l'ouvrage en latin et français). Description en photos ici: https://goo.gl/photos/NYkT977cy6hLEEMC6 Guillaume de Baillou, dit Ballonius, est un médecin français, né à Paris en 1538 et mort en 1616.Il fut l'un de ceux qui contribuèrent le plus à ramener la médecine à l'étude des faits. Eloy lui reproche d'écrire sans ordre, de charger son style de mots grecs et de s'être intéressé à l'astrologie, mais en concluant : « On est cependant obligé d'avouer qu'il est bon observateur et qu'il est de la plus grande exactitude dans ce qu'il rapporte sur l'histoire des maladies, et qu'il ne donne pas aisément dans les bruits du public » C'est-à-dire qu'il reste prudent et sceptique devant les rumeurs populaires accompagnant le déroulement des épidémies. On trouve dans ses ouvrages des notions intéressantes sur les maladies épidémiques. Celui qui intéresse le plus les historiens est Epidemorium & Ephemeridum Libri duo, 1640. C'est un recueil d'observations épidémiques à Paris de 1570 à 1579. ll est le premier à effectuer une description clinique authentique de la coqueluche en 1578, faite sous le nom de Tussis quintina.

This opera, with text by Sedaine, "marked the beginning of a long series of successful collaborations between the two ... Like Sedaine, Monsigny had a feeling for the theatre, and devoted all his artistic efforts to the stage. He took pains to match his music to the subject and to the action, and was personally involved with the `mise en scene'. Though he never achieved the fluency of Gretry, nor the technique of Philidor, Monsigny nevertheless showed a remarkable feeling for melody (Gretry considered him `the most tuneful of all musicians') and a freshness of inspiration which is always attractive, despite its limitations."

Briasson. 1762 FIRST EDITION COMPLETE FOLIO PLATES OF ANATOMY SECTION OF DIDEROT'S FAMOUS ENCYCLOPEDIE--PUBLICATION SENSATION OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT. 17 inches tall folio hardcover, blue paper-covered boards, black cloth spine, 21 pages of letterpress description of the plates; 33 copper plate engravings: ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF DESCRIPTION OF THE ANATOMY PLATES: Anatomy, comprising thirty-three plates. Notice. Anatomy, that part of physics that provides knowledge of the human body, should appear with distinction in a Dictionary of the Sciences. It is primarily through the plates that it may be understood. Mr. Tarin, in charge of Anatomy, dedicated himself to finding those authors regarded as the best. His collection representing all of the parts of the human body, it would appear that he could not have done better to satisfy the Public than probing his sources with discernment, and extracting only the most desirable. The experts applauded his choices, and all of Anatomy was to be represented in 22 plates, as was described in the first volume of the Encyclopedia, in the article Anatomy. It was subsequently shared with the contracted booksellers that it was difficult to follow this first plan without severely reducing elements that should not be lost. They decided on the spot to increase the number of copper plates, and to display the suite of figures in an expanded presentation. The number of plates was increased by one third, by doubling half of those to which they were committed. They made it their duty to spare neither care nor expense in attracting to their enterprise the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jefferson wrote from Monticello in 1817, “While I was an amateur in Agricultural science (for practical knowledge my course of life never permitted me) I was very partial to the drilled husbandry of Tull.” Jethro Tull’s invention of the seed-drill helped bring about a revolution in agriculture. “By contour ploughing, drilling his seed at wide intervals, and using his horse-hoe to destroy weeds, Tull was able to grow wheat on the same fields for thirteen years continuously without manuring” (ODNB). “The practices of drill-sowing and frequent hoeing are the greatest improvements which have been introduced into the modern practice of tillage” (McDonald).

[Treaties - Great Britain]
London: Printed by E. Owen and T. Harrison, 1762. 23pp. printed in double-column format in parallel French and English. Quarto. 19th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Minor wear to corners and edges. A few pencil marks, light toning. Very good. The rare preliminary edition of the 1763 Treaty of Paris, which ended the global Seven Years' War (called the French & Indian War in North America) between Great Britain, France, and Spain, and set the conditions for the American Revolution. The three countries involved had been exhausted and grew deeply indebted by the war when they came to the negotiating table in late 1762. Britain, however, had made the most territorial gains during the conflict and therefore had the most bargaining power over the peace terms. The articles contained here conform largely to the final definitive version of the treaty, which was approved a few months later in February 1763. This is the first publication in English of one of the most far-reaching and significant peace treaties to deal with North America. By terms of this treaty, printed here for final ratification and made official in 1763, major shifts in the American balance of power take place. The French are almost entirely expelled from North America, as their Canadian possessions and all lands east of the Mississippi are ceded to the British. The remainder of Louisiana goes to the Spanish. The Spanish give up claims in Florida to the British, who also receive the Grenadines and Dominica. All the French receive is the return of Martinique, Guadeloupe, and several … [Click Below for Full Description]

SOBIESKI.) COYER, l'Abbé Gabriel-François.
London: A. Millar, 1762. Octavo (197 x 124 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, spine ruled gilt in compartments, red morocco label, paired gilt fillet border to sides, red speckled edges. Some light abrasions to binding, a touch of shelfwear. A very good copy in a well-preserved period binding. First edition in English of the Abbé Coyer's biography of the great Polish hero Jan Sobieski (1629-1696), from 1674 king of Poland, renowned for his defeat of the Turks at the gates of Vienna in 1683. It was originally published in 1761 as Histoire de Jan Sobieski, Roi de Pologne and used verbatim by the assiduous Encyclopédiste Louis de Jaucort for the article on Poland in the Encyclopédie. The book caused a stir; Leonard Adams, in his Coyer and the Enlightenment (Voltaire Foundation, 1974), notes that Coyer "attempted to show the utter futility of war, French connivance and interference in the internal affairs of a foreign country, and the benefits to be derived from enlightened government". This attractive copy is from the library of Charles William Vane, third marquess of Londonderry (1778–1854), with his elaborate bookplate; his arms, with hussar supporters, including his many military awards. A brave but not particularly brilliant soldier, Sir John Moore described him as "a very silly fellow", Vane served with variable distinction throughout the Peninsular War. His Narrative of the war (1828), based on his correspondence with his half-brother Lord Castlereagh, was not uncontroversial. His dashing and dandified portrait by Sir Thomas Lawrence is at the National Portrait Gallery. ES … [Click Below for Full Description]

Matthias Seutter in Augsburg, c.1762. original hand-colour copper engraving. Condition: tight margins, otherwise very good.With glorious fully (later?) colour huge and decorative allegorical cartouche, representing the Europe-China trade.Five allegorical figures combine Knowledge, Power and Influence looking at the map of China; the seated figure of Prosperity points to trading junks at sea.A not only detailed but also very stunning map of China, Korea, Taiwan and southern tip of Japan.Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. (further details see JO & label.The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter (1717-1777), and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran Seutter's printing business for five more years a … [Click Below for Full Description]
