        The Theory and Practice of Brewing.

      London: Printed by J. Haberkorn, 1762. . First edition, 4to, (iv), vi, xii, 298 pp. Signed on the title verso by the author, outer edge of title laid down, as is the whole of the errata leaf, ink accession number to title and final page, some occasional browning, later armorial bookplate of Alfred Chadwick. Modern half calf, marbled sides. The author owned a brewery in Hampstead and many pubs in the area. Expanding on his "Essay on Brewing" (1758), this work "...demonstrated a clear grasp of basic principles and how these could be profitably applied to the brewing trade [and] described experiments carried out to determine the drying temperatures required to yield malts of different colours and recorded observations on mashing and fermentation temperatures, and those for each stage of winemaking" (ODNB). Although the title verso states "This Book is entered at Stationers Hall, and every Copy is signed by the Author", the majority seem not to have been signed.

        Diderot et D'Alembert Arazzi Gobelins ad alto liccio

      Diderot et D'Alembert 1762 1° Ed - Raccolta di tavole sulle scienze, le arti liberali e le arti meccaniche con le relative spiegazioniLa monumentale Encyclopédie di D. Diderot (1713-84), e di J. B. d?Alembert (1717-83), o Dizionario ragionato delle scienze, delle arti e dei mestieri, pubblicata in Francia, dal 1751 al 1772, è universalmente ritenuta l?espressione più completa del sapere tecnologico, artistico e scientifico dell?illuminismo. La prima dispensa dei volumi che costituiscono la Raccolta delle 3123 tavole dell?Encyclopédie, opera autonoma rispetto al testo, venne pubblicata a Parigi, nel 1762. Il quarto tomo delle tavole uscì nel 1765, il decimo e l?undicesimo nel 1772. Questa raccolta di tavole, opera di un gruppo di incisori fuori del comune, suscita ancora oggi l?ammirazione di quanti vi si accostano. Un posto a sé merita però Louis-Jacques Goussier (1722-1799), fisico, matematico e pittore, che firma 900 tavole, ma che si ritiene autore di almeno due terzi della totalità delle incisioni. A lui, come direttore dell?incisione, si deve l?unità di stile delle tavole, stile che corrispondeva perfettamente allo spirito informatore dell?Encyclopédie. Scriveva infatti Diderot che?la purezza dello stile, la chiarezza e la precisione? erano le ?sole qualità? che ogni parte dell?opera dovesse avere in comune; ?un?occhiata all?oggetto o alla sua rappresentazione ne dice di più che non una pagina scritta? Tutto, nella Raccolta delle tavole, è trasparente, limpido, senza mistero: la magia di queste tavole è quella di far sognare. Le tavole di questo fascicolo, Tapisserie de Haute-lisse des Gobelins, rappresentano gli Arazzi dei Gobelins ad alto liccioLa celebre manifattura parigina di arazzi dei Gobelins, sita nei locali di un?antica tintoria della famiglia Gobelin (donde il nome), e situata sulla riva del fiume Bièvre, nacque nel 1666, sotto l?impulso di Luigi XIV. La Manifattura reale degli arredi della Corona, che, come dice il nome, non doveva produrre solo arazzi, ma mobili, opere di oreficeria e mosaici per le dimore regie, e soprattutto per Versailles, ebbe grande splendore e fama sino alla fine del XVII secolo. Gli arazzi dei Gobelins, spesso vere e proprie opere d?arte, venivano tessuti su telai a mano con fili di seta e lana di vario colore ed erano destinati a rivestire e a ornare le pareti. Venivano prodotti sia con telai verticali detti ?ad alto liccio?, per arazzi di grandi dimensioni, sia con telai orizzontali, detti ?a basso liccio?, più veloci ma in grado di produrre solo arazzi di piccolo formato. Le tavole qui di seguito illustrano la fabbricazione di arazzi ad alto liccio. Nella tav. doppia I, Manifattura reale dei Gobelins: operai al telaio, altri azionano i subbi, uno cerca nel cassone filati di diversi colori, un?operaia dipana le matasse portatele da un bimbo. Nella tav. II, reparto di tessitura ad alto liccio: vedute di un telaio. Nella tav. III, orditorio e bobinatrice. Nella tav. IV, la rastrelliera sulla quale si distribuisce l?ordito. Nella tav. V, la preparazione dei licci. Nella tav. VI, si girano, avvalendosi delle apposite barre, i subbi per tendere l?ordito. Nella tav. doppia VII, il meccanismo illustrato consente di manovrare il subbio senza rischio e di impiegare solo due operai. Nella tav. VIII, arcolai per dipanare lana e seta. Nella tav. IX, un operaio al lavoro, con la spola in mano nella posizione corretta per farla passare tra i fili; in basso, a sinistra, un porta candela con il gancio per attaccarlo alla bottoniera dell?addetto perché possa vedere senza essere disturbato dalla luce e, al centro, un sedile graduabile in altezza. Nella tav. X, passaggi della broche (lo strumento di legno che nella tessitura ad alto liccio funge da navetta). Nella tav. XI, tracciato del disegno e uso del pettine. Nella tav. XII, uso delle pinze edell?ago: un operaio toglie con le pinze dall?arazzo la lanugine del filato (sopra), un altro chiude le aperture fra i diversi colori. Nella tav. XIII, infine, parte di arazzo lavorato a metà vi [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Marc Michel Rey 1762 - (4), VIII, 323, (1) pp. 8to (192*126 mm). []2 *4 A-V8 X2. 1st edition, 3rd and final issue. Recent brown quartercalf with brown marbled boards and gilt title on spine. New plain endpapers. Edges sprinkled blue (not recent). A fresh, crisp and unpressed copy. Our copy of the Contract Social conforms to Dufour's Type B issue, with the title-page having the vignette of Liberty seated and the contentious section on marriage in the second corrected state. The publishing history of the Contract Social is a complicated one. When the press was set up and the first copies already printed, Rousseau received a proof of the title-page which he disliked. He had also decided to tone down his note on marriage where he criticised the monopoly of the Catholic clergy. He therefore instructed his publisher, Rey, to change the title-page and the final section. Printing and the Mind of Man 207; Dufour 133; Tchemerzine V 543.

        Esprit des loix de la tactique et de différentes institutions militaires, ou notes contenant plusieurs nouveaux systèmes sur l'Art de la Guerre. Commenté par M. de Bonneville. Avec un Mémoire militaire sur les Tartares & les Chinois, où l'on trouve une comparaison des Opérations militaire de ces deux nations avec ce que les Historiens & commentateurs européens ont écrit d'instructif pour le gens de guerre.

      À La Haye, Chez Pierre Gosse, 1762, - 2 tomes en 1 vol. in-4, XVI-160 pp. et 196 pp., 56 pl. dépl., veau porphyre, dos à nerfs orné de caissons fleuronnés dorés, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Léger manque aux coiffes. Petits trous de ver en bord de marge en pied de page au T. I, qqs mouillures angulaires.Colson, L'art de la guerre de Machiavel à Clausewitz, 170-172 : "Les Rêveries de Maurice de Saxe, ont été publiées pour la première fois par Zacharie de Pazzi de Bonneville, un ingénieur français. En 1762, Bonneville publie un ouvrage qui prétend exposer la pensée tactique de Maurice de Saxe et qui consiste principalement en un commentaire sans ordre de notes qu'auraient laissées le maréchal. Elles commencent par la description d'un engin défensif, le "roulant frisé" ou cheval de frise sur roue. Maurice de Saxe en aurait eu l'idée et Bonneville tente de lui donner forme. Le roulant frisé et les sacs de terre lui apparaissent comme la panacée lors d'une bataille car ils donneraient aux armées en rase campagne l'appui qui leur manque (.). Bonneville se montre plutôt partisan de l'ordre mince, même s'il trouve que le système des colonnes peut être utile en certaines occasions. Il réfute les propositions de Folard en soulignant les ravages que fait l'artillerie dans les corps rangés en profondeur. Dans le second tome, il rassemble un commentaire de l'Art de la guerre de Puységur, des propositions sur l'artillerie et une étude sur l'art militaire oriental (.). Il attire l'attention sur l'art militaire des Tartares et des Chinois. Il entend réagir contre ceux qui ne croient qu'aux Grecs et aux Romains. Ses renseignements sont puisés dans l'ouvrage d'un certain Vojeu de Brunem et ne sont en fait qu'une histoire des guerres chinoises du XVIIe siècle, suivie d'une brève description des forces de l'empire. Cela témoigne néanmoins de l'intérêt que l'on commence à porter, au XVIIIe siècle, à l'art militaire extrême-oriental." Bon exemplaire, complet des 56 planches en taille-douce dépliantes.

        An East View of Fort Royal in the Island of Guadaloupe... Drawn on the Spot by Lieut. Arch. Campbell Engineer

      London: Thomas Jefferys, November 1762. Engraving, by Peter Mazell. 11 1/8 x 19 1/2 inches. 18 3/4 x 24 3/4 inches. A fine and rare image of Guadaloupe in the West Indies, taken during the English occupation of the island from 1759 to 1763. Fort Royal is situated on the west coast of Basse-Terre (the more rugged of the two islands that make up the bulk of Guadaloupe) and is near the present-day town of Deshaies. The British attempted, unsuccessfully, to capture the French colony of Guadaloupe in 1666, 1691 and 1703, before finally succeeding in 1759. The island was returned to the French in 1763, but captured again, briefly, in April 1794.

        Excmo. Señor mio

      Madrid, 1762. No Binding. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Fol. [28 x 17.5 cm], (8) ff. Disbound with wrappers. Publication and library information (JCB) penciled on front wrappers. A few tears to edges of wrappers; leaves lightly creased, with light toning to upper margins; very faint waterstain to lower corner of first page. Generally good.Extremely rare first edition-only one other copy located-of a printed eyewitness account of the Battle of Havana by the Spanish naval commander, Gutierre Guido Hevia y Bustamante, who was subsequently court-martialed for losing the city to Britain. While the work lacks a date of publication, the document, signed October 1762, was very likely drawn up with an eye to such proceedings.Hevia's account begins with the hasty war council held in Havana on June 6 1762, during which Hevia and Juan de Prado, the colonial governor, decided to block the entrance to the harbor by sinking two of their own ships and utilize the crews of the remaining vessels to bolster the defense of Havana's El Morro fortress. He goes on to enumerate the Spanish forces, including 1500 to 2000 "Negros trabajadores," Cuban slaves who were promised (and given) their freedom in exchange for fighting the English invaders. Hevia then recounts the events of the next 60 days: as the Spanish garrisoned and battened down the fort, transferring most of their ships' artillery, ammunition and manpower to its defense, the English began constructing siege works in hopes of planting a mine and breaching the Morro's outermost walls. On July 30 the mine was detonated and the fortress was overtaken, an event that the author narrates with great emotion: "The terrible incident of the Morro filled my heart with bitterness, and my spirit was plunged in a chaos of mournful reflection." Hevia concludes with a summary of Spain's losses, including the names of the 10 'ships of the line' of the Spanish navy, which he had been unable to burn before the English capture. In 1764 both Hevia and Prado were court-martialed for incompetence in the defense of Havana, Prado receiving a death sentence (later commuted to imprisonment) and Hevia sentenced to 10 years' house arrest. Though there are a number of later pamphlets relating to the author's court-martial and conviction (e.g. Palau 69,691), the present document is evidently the earliest record of Hevia's testimony, as its date and place-Cadiz, October 30 1762-suggest that it was recorded almost immediately after he returned to Spain from his catastrophic defeat.Not in Palau. Not in KVK.OCLC: JCB, whose copy, in the absence of any published collation, we have checked against the present one. *With thanks to Dennis Landis at JCB for checking their copy.

        Exquisite Binding with Ornate Carved Silver Clasp in Working Condition, Holds an Ancient Prophecy

      Germany: Johann Peter Wolffs, 1762. Title: Das Himmlische Jerusalem. [Heavenly Jerusalem] ...Welches Durch die Würckung des H. Gebetts starck belagert, und durch Macht und Gewalt desselben glücklich erobert wird.... 8vo, [xxxvi], 370 pages, plus index. Text is in German. With 11 fine allegorical woodcut engravings, a woodcut engraved frontis pasted to endpaper, red and black print title page. Brown leather boards, gilt title and tooled motifs to spine, tooling and gilt borders to front and rear boards, with a working and symbolic silver-carved clasp. Slight wear to corners and edges, newer end papers, otherwise the volume is in very good condition, and the binding being of exceptional allure. A Renaissance interpretation of a popular and controversial prophecy surrounding the central city of the Holy Land, a scarce early work in its fine, original leather binding, adorned with a beautiful working clasp, crafted of sliver, and making a stately presence to the volume. A subject which is heavily discussed still today by followers of several religions and also by atheists, this historical work examines ancient scripture from the Lutheran point of view. The content represents, in some part, the reason for centuries of feuding in the Middle East. At least one Judaic theory proposes that such events as described, relating to the Temple of the Mount, and New Jerusalem, could unfold as early as March 2013. In the book of Ezekiel, the Prophecy of New Jerusalem (Jehovah-shammah), also titled Heavenly Jerusalem in the Book of Revelation, is Ezekiel's prophetic vision of a city to be established to the south of the Temple Mount, one which will be inhabited by the twelve tribes of Israel in the Messianic era. The prophecy is recorded by Ezekiel as taking place on Yom Kippur of the year 3372 of the Hebrew calendar. It is also referred to as Zion in other books of the Bible The Messianic Age is a theological term referring to a future time of universal peace and brotherhood on the earth, without crime, war and poverty. Many religions believe that there will be such an age; some refer to it as the consummate "kingdom of God", "paradise", "peaceable kingdom", or the "world to come". .

        A DEFENCE OF THE UNITED COMPANY OF MERCHANTS OF ENGLAND, TRADING TO THE EAST-INDIES, AND THEIR SERVANTS, (PARTICULARLY THOSE AT BENGAL) AGAINST THE COMPLAINTS OF THE DUTCH EAST-INDIA COMPANY

      London. 1762.. [4],71pp. plus folding plan. Quarto. Dbd. Quite clean. Very good. The Seven Years' War (known in America as the French and Indian War) has often been considered the first "world war" because the European powers contested with each other in every sphere of the globe. This led to clashes in India between the French, British, Dutch, and Portuguese. This is a rebuttal to a memorial published by the Dutch East India Company in which the Dutch East India Company "exculpate their servants in India from the charge contained in the Memorial of the 14th August, of committing hostilities against the English in Bengal...and even to introduce and give colour to other complaints, no way relative to the English Memorial." It details aggressions by the Dutch against the British in India from 1756 to the time of writing. The plan shows the fort at Bangalore. ESTC T97097. KRESS 6007. GOLDSMITHS 9776.

Early in his career he published 'Hao Kiou Choaan, or The Pleasing History', a heavily revised and annotated version of a manuscript translation of the 'Haoqiu zhuan', which is the first full publication in English of a Chinese novel. The Miscellaneous Pieces tackles the language and drama of the Chinese, their social life, customs and their gardens, the progress of Christianity in that country.

        A Memoir, Explanatory of the Chart and Survey of the County of London-Derry, Ireland

      4to. Dark grey paper over boards with paper spine label. xvi, 359pp. Foldout frontispiece, foldout map, 6 full-page plates (as called for). Good plus. Though tight-hinged and quite handleable, the upper paper portion (only) of the binding has been irregularly stripped off for the uppermost 1"-2" and the rest of the binding is quite edgeworn; internally this is a near fine copy, clean and quite handsome -- the foldout frontispiece and foldout map are superb and all of the plates are pristine. First edition. Sampson (1762-1827) was not only an influential long-time clergyman of the region, but a respected chemist and botanist as well. In 1813 he published an important chart of the county that featured geological sections, and followed it up with this supplemental "Memoir," the most thorough study of this second largest city in Northern Ireland. Quite scarce. A good candidate for rebinding, though "as is" it's serviceable.

        THE ENGLISH HERO: OR, SIR FRANCIS DRAKE REVIV'D. BEING A FULL ACCOUNT OF THE DANGEROUS VOYAGES, ADMIRABLE ADVENTURES, NOTABLE DISCOVERIES...The Sixteenth Edition...Inlarged and Reduced into Chapters and Contents, by R.B

      London: Printed for C. Hitch and L. Laws, and S. Crowder and Co., 1762.. [6],162pp. including frontispiece portrait of Drake. 16mo. Modern gilt morocco, raised bands, gilt spine, a.e.g. Spine ends bit worn, outer hinges rubbed. Some scattered dust soiling. Else a very good copy. "R.B." were the initials of Robert Burton, the pseudonym for author-publisher Nathaniel Crouch. This account of the exploits of Sir Francis Drake was itself mainly cribbed from a work first published in 1653. Crouch's first edition appeared in 1687. Although styled "sixteenth edition" on the titlepage, that may have been counting from 1653 or, as Kraus suggests, the second and third editions may never have existed. An important work in the Drake legend, it describes the Nombre de Dios voyage of 1572, the circumnavigation of 1575-77, Drake's defeat of the Armada in 1588, and his final American voyages. "A biography of Drake in chap-book form...like all such chap-book publications, copies are seldom found" - Kraus (commenting on the 1695 edition). SABIN 9500 (ref).

        Du Contrat Social; ou Principes Du Droit Politique

      Par J.J. Rousseau, Citoyen de Geneve. A Amsterdam, chez Marc-Michel Rey, 1762., 1762 Printed by the same publisher in the same year as the true first edition with the additional information added "Edition without Cover, to which has been added a letter from the Author to the only Friend that he still has in the world." Also considered the first pirated edition. 376 pp. Bound in contemporary full calf, red top stain, joints and binding strong, slight separation of front board. Rousseau was praised for his assessment of the state of society. He described a just society as one in which everyone was in his right place. Rousseau's Du Contrat Social (The Social Contract) begins with the sentence "Man was born free, but he is everywhere in chains" and proceeds to describe a civil society where men find political liberty by obeying the self-imposed law.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine.

        Considérations sur les corps organisés.

      Chez Marc Michel Rey 1762 - - Chez Marc Michel Rey, A Amsterdam _1762, 2 tomes en 2 Vol. in 8 (13,5x22,5cm), XLII (4) 274pp. et XX, 328pp., relié. - Edition originale. 2 vignettes de titre dessinées par Picart. Cartonnage à la Bradel XIXe noir. Pièces de titres de veau orange. Petit frottement en coiffe. Bel exemplaire. Ouvrage capital sur la génération et l'embrylogie, on y découvre l'hypothèse des chromosomes mais également celle de l'influence de l'environnement. Bonnet y perfectionne sa thèse selon laquelle tout être existe préalablement en germe dans la nature, ainsi l'embryon existe déjà dans la liqueur séminale, et la génération n'est que le simple développement du germe, qui, de petit, se développe par la nutrition ; le germe contenant déjà tout ce qui sera développé. Bien que Bonnet développe les extensions et conséquences de ce postulat fondamental, cela ne l'empêche nullement de pénétrer les mystères de l'embryologie et de la fécondation. La thèse du germe semblant un moyen terme entre la génération spontanée et l'engendrement, elle semble une solution à l'impasse théorique à laquelle conduit la génération spontanée que contredisent les observations, dans lesquelles Bonnet possède une grande finesse. Bonnet ne s'intéresse pas seulement aux mammifères mais largement aux végétaux et aux vers de terre. Etiquette Librairie Alain Brieux. XLII (4) 274pp. et XX, 328pp. .

        A Defence of the United Company of Merchants of England, Trading to the East-Indies, and their Servants, (particularly those at Bengal) against the Complaints of the Dutch East-India Company

      London: 1762. Quarto. [4],71pp. plus folding plan. Quite clean. Very good. Disbound. The Seven Years War (known in America as the French & Indian War) has often been considered the first "world war" because the European powers contested with each other in every sphere of the globe. This led to clashes in India between the French, British, Dutch, and Portuguese. This is a rebuttal to a memorial published by the Dutch East India company in which the Dutch East India Company "exculpate their servants in India from the charge contained in the Memorial of the 14th August, of committing hostilities against the English in Bengal...and even to introduce and give colour to other complaints, no way relative to the English Memorial." It details aggressionsby the Dutch against the British in India from 1756 to the time of writing. The plan shows the fort at Bangalore. ESTC T97097; Kress 6007; Goldsmith 9776.

        Atlas Geographique contenant la Mappemonde et les quartes parties, avec les differents Etats d'Europe

      Paris: Lattre, 1762. 16mo., (4 6/8 x 3 inches). 7-page publisher's advertisement at end. "Idee de la Sphere, ou Principes sur la Geographique", by M. Bonne, 1723. Fine engraved hand-coloured title-page. 29 double-page engraved hand-coloured maps (without the frontispiece of the armillory sphere and the two unnumbered maps sometimes found with this edition). Fine contemporary cherry red morocco, each cover finely decorated with a border of triple gilt filets, with a fine gilt lily tool at each inner corner, the smooth spine ruled in six compartment, the second with a black morocco lettering-piece, the others decorated with fine gilt lily tools, all edges gilt. A FINE AND ATTRACTIVE COPY of this beautiful pocket atlas including double-page maps of both hemispheres; maps of the continents, including one each of North and South America; and several detailed maps of east and west Europe, including a six-sheet map of the German Empire. Essentially depicting Europe towards the end of the Seven Years War (1756-1763). With its origins in the French-Indian wars in North America two years earlier, the conflict began in Europe with the French siege of British Minorca and Prussia's invasion of Saxony, and ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763. However the effect of the war was global: it ended France's position as the major colonial power in America, and consequently strengthened Britain's power there and in India. Rizzi-Zannoni was born 1736 in Naples and was renowned from an early age as one of the finest cartographers in Europe. In addition to cartography he worked as an astronomer, surveyor and mathematician. He was the first cartographer to triangulate Poland and helped also in the French and English border survey of America in 1757. While in the service of the Prussian's he was captured by the French at the Battle of Rosbach in early December 1757 and sent to France, where he lived for the next twenty years. In 1781 the Bourbon rulers of Naples made him director of the Topographical Office, one of the first governmental cartographic offices in Europe, where he oversaw the creation of the celebrated and monumental "Geographic Atlas of the Kingdom of Naples", published shortly before his death in 1812. Philipps 633, listing probably by error only 22 maps.
