Spectacular images recalling the siege and capture of Havana in 1762. A fine pair of views from a series illustrating events during the capture and reduction of Havana by a force under the command of Sir George Pocock (1706-1792). In February 1762 Pocock "was appointed commander-in-chief of 'a secret expedition' ... which sailed from Spithead on 5 March ... On 26 April it arrived in Martinique, sailed again on 6 May, and ... landed ... the troops six miles to the eastward of Havana on 7 June ... The seige-works were at once commenced. A large body of seamen were put ashore, and 'were extremely useful in landing the cannon and ordnance stores , manning the batteries, making fascines, and supplying the army with water' (Beatson) [these preparations are shown in the first of the present plates]... By the 30th the batteries were ready, and on 1 July opened a heavy fire, supported by three ships of the line, under the immediate command of Captain Hervey of the Dragon [this incident is pictured in the second plate]. The Moro was engaged, but after some six hours, the ships were obliged to haul out of action, two of them - the Cambridge and the Dragon - having sustained heavy loss and much damage ... the English batteries gradually subdued the enemy's fire ... the Moro was taken by storm on 30 July, and on 13 Aug. the town ... surrendered by capitulation. The money value of the prize was enormous. The share of Pocock alone, as naval commander-in-chief, was 122,697l. 10s. 6d." (DNB). Dominic Serres 'was born in 1722 at Auch in Gascony, and was educated in the public school there... His parents intended him for the church, but, this not suiting his taste, he ran away from his native town, and made his way on foot into Spain. He there shipped on board a vessel for South America as a common sailor, and eventually became master of a trading vessel to the Havannah, where he was taken prisoner by a British frigate and brought to this country about 1758. After his release he married and lived for a time in Northamptonshire. He had received some instruction in drawing, and commenced life in England as a painter of naval pieces, for which the wars of the period furnished an abundance of subjects. He received some assistance from Charles Brooking, and soon established a position. In 1765 Serres became a member of the Incorporated Society of Artists, and exhibited with them for two years. On the establishment of the Royal Academy in 1768 he was chosen one of the foundation members, and was a constant contributor up to the time of his death. Between 1761 and 1793 he exhibited eight works at the Society of Artists, twenty-one at the Free Society, and 105 at the Royal Academy ... Serres was a good linguist. In 1792 he succeeded Wilton as librarian to the academy. He was also appointed marine-painter to George III, but he did not long hold these offices. He died in 1793, and was buried at St. Marylebone Old Church.' (DNB).

        Poems on Several Occasions

      London: Printed for John Rivington, 1762 First editions of both titles. Bound with: Carter, Anna Maria. Selections from the Letters, &c. of the Late Miss Carter of Wittenham Berks. By William P{almer, A.B. Baillol College Oxford. To which are added, some compositions in consequence of her death. Eeter: Printd by R. Trewman and Son, 1793. Octavo. 53, [1] pp. Errata slip tipped in. Small octavo. Early nineteenth century blue speckled calf, decoratively ruled in gilt with burgundy morocco spine label, marbled edges and endpapers. The second work with former owner's signature on title-page, dated 1793, shaved in rebinding. The errata leaf has ink correction in the same hand, and that has been made at the appropriate place in the text. Ink signatures of Mary Ann Carter Duncan, dated 1837, on a preliminary blank, two-page manuscript poem bound in at end, probably in the same hand. A very good, attractive copy. Elizabeth Carter (1717-1806) was, to quote Priscilla Dorr in Schleuter's Encyclopedia of British Women Writers, "the most learned lady in England during the eighteenth century." She was one of the most famous members of the Blue Stocking Circle, which also included Catherine Talbot, Elizabeth Vesey, Elizabeth Montagu, Hester Chapone, and Hannah More. Despite an early learning disability and "with a persistence that won the praise of V. Woolf in A Room of One's Own," (as Margaret Drabble reminds us in the Oxford Companion to English Literature) she learned Latin, Greek, and Hebrew in childhood with her brothers, and later studied French, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Arabic. She was a friend of Samuel Johnson, who thought her one of the best Greek scholars he had known, and invited her to contribute to The Rambler. She made a number of translations, of which her Epictetus is the masterpiece. This is her only important collection of verse and the last work of substance that she published. Foxon, p. 109.

        Altsammans, til nordiska historiens och språkets förbättring, utgifwet af Nils Reinhold Brocman.

      Stockholm, Lars Salvius, 1762. 4:o. (2),+ XLIV,+ 131, 133-37, 137-280,+ (6) s. Lagerfläckig med enstaka småfläckar. Något senare hfrbd med guldornerad rygg och röd, något blekt titeletikett, gula snitt. Rääfs exlibris. Fint exemplar. Fiske s. 644. Runic Literature, s. 9. Warmholtz 2615. Isländsk-svensk parallelltext. Den isländska texten bygger på ett arnamagnæanskt manuskript utgivet av Jakob Langebek, åt vilken Brocman under åren 1753-54 arbetade som biträde och kopist. Sagan om Ingvar Vidtfarne upptar sidorna 1-48. Sidorna 49-280 innehåller Brocmans avhandling om runstenarnas ålder, språk och typer, med ett speciellt kapitel om Ingvarsstenarna. Nils Reinhold Brocman (1731-70) var assessor och translator i antikvitetsarkivet och medarbetare åt bl. a. Berch. Han företog ett stort antal antikvariska resor runt i Sverige och granskade runstenar och kopierade medeltidsdiplom. Han dog dock ung och vid sidan av denna utgåva hann han endast utge en beskrivning över hemstaden Norrköping. Langebek föreslog vid sin vistelse i Stockholm att Sverige borde utge en statsunderstödd utgåva av de svenska medeltidskällorna och att detta uppdrag borde gå till Brocman. Därav blev dock intet

        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 five raised bands and red gilt title-and tome-lables to richly gilt spines. Triple gilt line-borders to boards, gilt line-border to edges of bords, and inner gilt dentelles. Edges painted red. Some overall wear to bindings, especially to hinges and corners. Book-plates removed from inside of front boards. Internally some occasional browning and soiling, but not heavy. A few free end-papers have vague off-setting from title-page and plate (most of which were originally meant to serve as frontispieces), probably having been used to put between the sheets of the plate and the title-page immediately after printing and then used as free end-papers afterwards. A few of the plates have been bent at the margin, not affecting the actual plate, and are a bit browned. (2), VIII, (2), 466, (6) pp. + (4), 407, (1) pp. + (4), 384 pp.; (4), 455, (1) pp. + 5 engraved plates (all placed at the relevant pages, not as frontispieces). The first plate "Thétis" in the variant state without title (as described in MacEachern). Fully complete, exactly as described in MacEachern. Without f. Z4 (MacEachern: "In some copies -Z4"). With the misprintings: Vol. 1: 88 as S8, 443 as 433 (not 465 as 46, though); 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) 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 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
