      18 n.n. + 180 S. OPgm. der Zeit, datiert 1762. EA. - St. a. T. u. letzter S., leichte Gbrsp., ansonsten schönes Expl. - Basedow, (1724 - 1790), studierte Theologie in Leipzig und war dann Hauslehrer in Holstein. Seit 1753 war Basedow Prof. der Moral, Rhetorik, später auch der Theologie an der dänischen Ritterakademie in Soroe. Wegen seiner aufklärerischen Schriften 1761 an das Gymnasium nach Altona versetzt, traf er auch hier auf den Widerstand orthodoxer Theologen um den Senior Johann Melchior Goeze. 1767 wurde Basedow bei Beibehaltung seines Gehalts entlassen. Unter dem Einfluß von Jean-Jacques Rousseaus Emile verfaßte er 1768 ein philanthropisches Erziehungsprogramm, in dem er ein lebensnahes, überkonfessionelles, unter staatlicher Aufsicht stehendes Bildungswesen forderte. 1774 gründete er in Dessau das Philanthropin, gab 1778 dessen Leitung ab und widmete sich literarischer Tätigkeit. Bedeutend war sein Elementarwerk (4 Bde., 1774), illustriert von Daniel Chodowiecki. (DBE)

Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges, 1st Baronet (30 November 1762 8 September 1837) was an English bibliographer and genealogist. He was also Member of Parliament for Maidstone from 1812 to 1818. Educated at Maidstone Grammar School and The King's School, Canterbury, Brydges was admitted to Queens' College, Cambridge in 1780, though he did not take a degree. He was called to the bar from the Middle Temple in 1787. He wrote some novels and poems, now forgotten, but rendered valuable service through his bibliographical publications, Censura Literaria, Titles and Opinions of Old English Books (10 vols. 1805-9), his editions of Edward Phillips's Theatrum Poetarum Anglicanorum (1800), Arthur Collins's Peerage of England (1812), and of many rare Elizabethan authors. He was a founding member of the Roxburghe Club, a publishing club of wealthy bibliophiles. He was elected a Knight Grand Commander of the Equestrian, Secular, and Chapterial Order of St. Joachim in 1807, at a Chapter held in Franconia. In 1789, the Chandos barony became dormant. Egerton Brydges attempted to claim the title, initially on behalf on his older brother Rev. Edward Tymewell Brydges, then later on his own behalf. The litigation continued from 1790 to 1803, before the claims were ultimately rejected, but he continued to style himself per legem terrae Baron Chandos of Sudeley. It seems likely that not only was the claim groundless but that the evidence was forged. He was made a baronet on 27 December 1814. He died in Geneva. (Wikipedia)

        English Hero

      , 1762. 1762. [CROUCH, Nathaniel]. The English Hero: Or, Sir Francis Drake Reviv'd… Inlarged and reduced into Chapters and Contents, by R.B. London: Printed for C. Hitch, L. Hawes, S. Crowder and Co., 1762. 12mo (3-1/4 by 5 inches), contemporary full calf rebacked in calf-gilt, red morocco spine label. $1800.Later edition of this popular and influential biography of Sir Francis Drake, illustrated with an engraved frontispiece portrait of the sea captain, in contemporary calf boards.This brief biography of Drake, a key contribution to his legendary status in the popular imagination, includes accounts of his global circumnavigation, his defeat of the Spanish Armada and his voyages to North America. ""Based largely on Fletcher's World encompassed [1628] and on Nichol's Sir Francis Drake revived [1626], this account… seems to have struck English popular fancy more forcibly"" than its sources (Howes B1035). In fact, although the title page denotes this the ""sixteenth edition,"" the book actually saw 23 by 1762. ""R.B."" are initials for ""Robert Burton,"" a pseudonym bookseller and publisher Nathaniel Crouch appears to have adopted in reference to the author of The Anatomy of Melancholy (1620): ""The Anatomy… [gave] many humbly educated men a passing knowledge of the classics. In a similar fashion Crouch's history books presented shortened and simplified versions of serious works to audiences that might otherwise never have read them"" (DNB). First published in 1687. Sabin 9500. Contemporary ink markings and later pencil bibliographic notation to front pastedown.Occasional light foxing, minor closed tear to leaf [C6], free endpapers renewed. Contemporary calf boards lightly rubbed with expert restoration. Extremely good condition. Scarce.

        English Hero

      1762. [CROUCH, Nathaniel]. The English Hero: Or, Sir Francis Drake Reviv'dÂ… Inlarged and reduced into Chapters and Contents, by R.B. London: Printed for C. Hitch, L. Hawes, S. Crowder and Co., 1762. 12mo (3-1/4 by 5 inches), contemporary full calf rebacked in calf-gilt, red morocco spine label. $1800.Later edition of this popular and influential biography of Sir Francis Drake, illustrated with an engraved frontispiece portrait of the sea captain, in contemporary calf boards.This brief biography of Drake, a key contribution to his legendary status in the popular imagination, includes accounts of his global circumnavigation, his defeat of the Spanish Armada and his voyages to North America. ""Based largely on Fletcher's World encompassed [1628] and on Nichol's Sir Francis Drake revived [1626], this accountÂ… seems to have struck English popular fancy more forcibly"" than its sources (Howes B1035). In fact, although the title page denotes this the ""sixteenth edition,"" the book actually saw 23 by 1762. ""R.B."" are initials for ""Robert Burton,"" a pseudonym bookseller and publisher Nathaniel Crouch appears to have adopted in reference to the author of The Anatomy of Melancholy (1620): ""The AnatomyÂ… [gave] many humbly educated men a passing knowledge of the classics. In a similar fashion Crouch's history books presented shortened and simplified versions of serious works to audiences that might otherwise never have read them"" (DNB). First published in 1687. Sabin 9500. Contemporary ink markings and later pencil bibliographic notation to front pastedown.Occasional light foxing, minor closed tear to leaf [C6], free endpapers renewed. Contemporary calf boards lightly rubbed with expert restoration. Extremely good condition. Scarce.

        Oratio inauguralis, de incremento philologiae sacrae ab idonea Arabiae atque Palaestinae exploratione sperando.

      Franequerae, Gulielmus Coulon, 1762. - Folio. (4). 67, (1 blank) pp. With a woodcut coat of arms of the province of Friesland on the title-page, 1 woodcut headpiece, 1 woodcut tailpiece (plus 2 repeats) and 4 woodcut decorated initials (2 series). Set in roman and italic types with a few words of Hebrew. Modern boards, covered with grey paper, red and blue sprinkled edges. First and only edition of an inaugural lecture by Samuel Hendrik Manger (1735-1791), appointed ordinary professor of oriental languages and of Hebrew antiquities at the University of Franeker in 1760. Partly under the influence of the orientalist Albert Schultens, Manger valued Arabic studies for the insights they gave into Old Testament scholarship. In his present inaugural lecture, he discusses the controversial expedition to Palestine that several scholars were planning to make in that year. It shows his interest in archaeological research carried out in expeditions instigated by the German scholar Johann David Michaëlis. Manger believed they would inaugurate a new era in Biblical scholarship. - In very good condition and with very large margins, with only some minor marginal foxing in the title-page and an occasional unobtrusive small stain. STCN (3 copies); for the author: Biografisch lexicon voor de geschiedenis van het Nederlands protestantisme I, pp. 155-156; NNBW IX, col. 644. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1762. BIBLE. The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments… Cambridge: Printed by Joseph Bentham, Sold by Benjamin Dod, 1762. Two volumes. Quarto, contemporary full red morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated boards and spines, raised bands, olive morocco spine labels, patterned endpapers, all edges gilt. $15,000.1762 “Standard Edition” of the King James Bible, with engraved allegorical frontispiece, distinctively bound in contemporary, elaborately gilt-tooled morocco.First published in 1611, the King James version is “the most celebrated book in the English-speaking world… Other translations may engage the mind, but the King James Version is the Bible of the heart” (Campbell, 1, 275). This 1762 edition marks the “standard edition” of that magisterial translation. “In this Bible a serious attempt was made [by S.F. Parris] to correct the text of King James’ version by amending the spelling and punctuation, unifying and extending the use of italics, and removing printers’ errors. Marginal annotations, which had been growing in some Bibles since 1660, although excluded from others, were finally received into the place they have occupied ever since, sundry new ones being added. Lloyd’s dates and chronological notes were also adopted and increased, and the marginal references were much enlarged” (Darlow & Moule 854). Handsomely full contemporary goatskin elaborately gilt-tooled with a border composed of floral, insect, star and crown-and-scepter tools, with two flame-burst rings occupying each board’s center, one inside the other, enclosing a ring of cherubs and the sacred monogram, IHS. Incorrect rendering “thy doctrine” retained in 1 Timothy 4:16. Includes Apocrypha. With engraved allegorical frontispiece (by Grignion after Hayman) and separate New Testament title page. Issued the same year in a folio edition, very few copies of which now survive. Herbert 1143. Infrequent scattered light foxing. Stunning contemporary morocco in excellent condition. An outstanding Bible, distinguished in elaborately gilt-tooled binding.

III. An account of the loadstone, with the first invention of the compass; to which is joined, Houghton's Dialling> and Levelling,> illustrated with a few examples. The whole carefully revised and corrected, so that it may be depended on. To all which is added, as a second part, an Appendix. ..... The second edition.

      Birmingham: printed by T. Warren, jun. near the Chapel. 1762. 8vo., (4) + 112 + (1) and vii + (1) + 84pp., (p.101 is a printed folding table), contemporary half calf over marbled boards, generally rather rubbed or worn but the binding still sound and good. A very good copy with the 20th century armorial bookplate of William Allen Potter> (ca. 1888 - 1953), Nottinghamshire farmer, businessman and High Sheriff. A standard work of reference on an arcane subject for both mine owner and mine engineer and their lawyers. 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.
