        Colonial Document: Sentencing of Isaac, A Negro Slave for Burglary

      Middlesex County, [New Brunswick(?), New Jersey, 1762. Good. Single folio leaf of laid paper written on both sides. Approximately 8" x 12.5". Marginal chipping and dampstaining at the lower extremities affecting some words, overall good or better condition.A contemporary recording of the results or actions in eight court cases. Of most interest is the first case: "The King vs. Isaac, a Negro Slave" according to the text for burglary. Isaac had originally pleaded Not Guilty, but apparently was persuaded otherwise, as the "Not" is crossed out on the document. The persuasion doesn't seem to have included leniency: "...whereupon it is ordered by the Court that the said Isaac do receive at the public whipping post fifty lashes on his bare back, well laid on, and that the said Isaac be cropped by having the lower part of his right ear cut off. And the Sheriff of Middlesex is ordered to cause this sentence to be carried into execution. The prisoner remanded to prison until the fees are paid."Equal justice doesn't seem to have been on the docket that day. The next defendant, a white man convicted of larceny, is fined five shillings. There is one small chip in the margin of this portion of the document affecting no text, and the portion concerning Isaac is in better condition than the rest of the document. A little more assiduous research is likely to pay dividends as there are numerous other names and cases that might better pinpoint the date. A chilling and graphic reminder of Colonial "justice" for slaves.

        The Medical Works

      C. Hitch and L. Hawes, et al., London 1762 - 4to. xxiv, 662, [48] pp. Mezzotint frontispiece portrait by R. Houston after A. Ramsay, five engraved folding plates. Modern half leather. Mead was the physician to Kings George II and III and to Alexander Pope, and was one of the leading medical practioners in London of his age.

His Works contains a Memoir on his life and works, and his earliest publication, "Mechanical account of poisons" (1702) and his important contribution to public health "Discourse on the plague" (1720). His paper "Discourse on the scurvy" (1749) demonstrated the method devised by Samuel Sutton, illustrated by one folding plate.

        Traité anatomique de la chenille qui ronge le bois de saule, augmenté [...] d'une description de l'instrument et des outils dont l'auteur s'est servi, pour anatomiser à la loupe et au microscope

      La Haye, Pierre Gosse, Daniel Pinet et Marc Michel Rey, 1762, in-4, de XXII, (2), 40, 616 pages et 19 planches, demi-veau de l'époque, dos lisse orné, Première édition. "La monographie de Lyonnet sur la chenille reste, aujourd'hui encore, parmi les meilleurs recherches anatomiques" (Garrison and Morton, 305). Le présent traité, que l'on peut considérer comme le triomphe empirique de l'oeil de l'observateur en histoire naturelle, est entièrement dévolu à la description particulièrement minutieuse des muscles, nerfs, bronches, coeur, viscères et aux fils de soie des chenilles ; toutes les représentations anatomiques ayant été dessinées puis gravées par Lyonnet lui-même. "He believed, first, that the world and all its creaturea are a vast cipher and, second, that the duty of man is to decode it. He found the natural world to be as intricately, precisely, and richly designed as a word by a Dutch artist ; and he believed taht the more this great design was elucidated, the rgreater would be man's reverence for the Designer. The tasks of breaking the code by tracing the design to its last perfect detail was therefore perhaps the one supremely worthwhile thing to do." (DSB, VIII, p. 580). Notre exemplaire est bien complet de la Lettre à M. Le Cat qui donne la description du microscope (la planche le figurant sert ici de frontispice) utilisé par Lyonnet pour ses observations et descriptions anatomiques, et de l'explication des figures I à VIII. Ces deux addenda sont placés directement après la préface conformément à l'avis au relieur qui clos l'ouvrage. Quelques feuillets roussis, sinon bon exemplaire grand de marges et propre.

Of particular note are those on Antiquità by Edme Mallet, Antiquità en architecture by Jacques-François Blondel, and two articles on Antique, one by Marc-Antoine Eidous. Although an abbot and primarily concerned with theology, Mallet also wrote on history and literature. Having studied at the Barnabites College of Montargis, Mallet became a key figure in the success of the Encyclopà die. Dying before the project was completed, Mallet still managed to produce over a thousand articles. Although his views are often criticised as restricted and narrow-minded, he acted as a safeguard for the project which could have been suspended if the religious articles had proved too controversial. His article on antiquities is a general overvi

        HORTUS REGIUS MONSPELIENSIS, SISTENS PLANTAS TUM INDIGENAS TUM EXOTICAS...

      Lyon: Fratrum De Tournes. Very Good. 1762. Hardcover. 548, [32] pages; Contemporary calf, rebacked. Illustrated by Engraved 6 plates (1 folded). OCLC: 14931781 This extensive catalogue of the plants in the Montpellier Botanical Garden is the first application of Linnean classification in France. Antoine Gouan (1733 – 1821) was a French naturalist from Montpellier and an early expositor of Linnaean taxonomy in France. In 1752, Gouan received his doctorate under Antoine Magnol and practiced medicine at Saint-Éloi Hospital in Montpellier while continuing to pursue his interest in natural history. In 1762 Gouan published this plant catalog of the botanical garden at Montpellier titled Hortus regius monspeliensis. This publication was the first French botanical work that followed the binomial nomenclature of Linnaeus. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. .

Divided into several sections, the first begins with a brief discussion of methods employed in finding 'veins' of lead-ore, copper-ore, or silver-ore. The second section deals with the laws regulating the mining industry, and articles for the High-Peak Hundred, Eyam and Stony-Middleton, Hassop, Ashford in Devon, the lead mines at Wirksworth, Long-Stone near Ashford - each with a list of the jurors, bills of complaint and cross-bills. On p.77 Hardy describes The Art of Dialling> and the properties of the lodestone and magnet followed by an explanation of how to arrange working shifts. The Appendix> includes a ready reckoner with tables and calculations to estimate loads, etc. First published in Sheffield in 1748, this edition is printed in a rather large antiqua type, which sometimes was linked to Baskerville, who was on good terms with the Birmingham printer. The type and layout are clearly trying to emulate Baskerville's highly legible designs. A third edition appeared in Wirksworth, a lead-mining town in Derbyshire, as late as 1810, a fact which speaks for the enduring usefulness of this book. Thomas Warren and his son were active as printers in Birmingham between 1727 and 1767, and are known to have published Samuel Johnson's first book, a translation of Jeronimo Lobo's Voyage to Abyssinia.> He was an investor in one of the first mechanised cotton mills of the town and founded the first Birmingham newspaper.

        Geographie, ofte beginselen der Land-Beschryvinge, zoo als die in haer eygen aerd, in verdeeling

      van Landen en Gewesten met Wateren en Zee-en sig bevinden, en door Bergen, Rivieren en Stroomen onderscheiden zyn; als mede den principaelsten Koophandel die in elke Landen verrigt worden. Tot Gend [Ghent] : Petrus de Goesin, [1762]. Duodecimo, contemporary calf (heavily rubbed and scuffed), spine with raised bands, compartments with stamped floral design in gilt (heavily rubbed, some loss at head and tail), marbled endpapers, title page with early ownership inscription dated 1789, pp 240, engraved head- and tail-pieces; publication date from Approbation at foot of last page; contents clean and sound. Text in Dutch. A rare eighteenth century pedagogical work on the fundamentals of physical geography, with an apparently unrecorded description of Australian Aborigines based on Dampier's account, published in 1697, of the inhabitants of the northwest coast. Published in the so-called Austrian Netherlands (a territory that was essentially what is now the southern Netherlands, western Belgium and Luxembourg), this work contains descriptions of all regions in the known world, and includes a section on "lands recently discovered, which are almost unknown, in the southern part of the world" (pp 222-224). These are as follows: Tierra del Fuego ("discovered by Le Maire in 1620); New Zealand ("discovered by the Dutch in 1654"); Solomon Islands ("discovered by Mendoza in 1567"); the land of "Papoux" ("the lands of the Moors, east of the Moluccas"); New Guinea; "Carpenter Land" (i.e. northern Australia and the Gulf of Carpentaria); Van Diemen's Land; and New Holland. The latter is described as lying below the 20th parallel south; the inhabitants have "neither houses nor sheep", and subsist on fish and mussels; the men have half-closed eyes and no beards, and lack two teeth in the upper jaw; their clothing is made from skins and leaves. All of the preceding "attributes" were observed by Dampier and appeared in his account. Not in OCLC; not in COPAC.
