        Principes du Droit Politique [Du Contract Social]

      Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, tan leather label. A fine, fresh, wide-margined copy in a very well-preserved binding. Half morocco case. FIRST EDITION, type B, the definitive authorized version. Observing in his opening words that "man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains," Rousseau offered this work as a yardstick with which to judge existing governments. He argued that the central problem is to "find a form of association which can defend and protect with all the power of the community the person and possessions of each associate, and by which each person unites himself with all, but only obeys himself and thereby remains as free as before." "The Contrat Social remains Rousseau's greatest work . . . his fundamental thesis that government depends absolutely on the mandate of the people, and his genuine creative insight into a number of political and economic problems, give his work an indisputable cogency. It had the most profound influence on the political thinking of the generation following its publication . . ." (Printing and the Mind of Man 207). Before publication Rousseau expressed dissatisfaction with the title-page and objected to its vignette in particular. The publisher offered an alternative title-page with a large vignette and with the phrase "Du Contract [sic] Social" moved to the half-title. At the same time, Rousseau suppressed a concluding passage on civil marriage. The requested changes were made, and thus only a handful of copies survive with the type A title-page. David Hume wrote to Rousseau on the publication of this work, "Of all the men of letters in Europe, since the death of Montesquieu, you are the person whom I most revere, both for the force of your genius and the greatness of your mind." The book remains the bible of popular sovereignty, egalitarian government and, above all, the preservation of individual liberty within civil society. The Contrat Social was an immediate sensation, and both the original publisher and several pirates brought out additional printings in 1762. Fine copies of the first edition in contemporary bindings are now scarce. Printing and the Mind of Man 207.

        Shipping Manifest; Partly printed document completed in John Hancock's own hand

      Boston 1762 - 9" x 4.5" partially printed bill of lading document filled in by John Hancock for his ailing uncle, Thomas Hancock. Edge chips and light fray to an otherwise well preserved specimen of handwriting by this bold signer of the Declaration of Independence.John Hancock (Jan 23, 1737 - Oct 8, 1793) served as the president of the Second Continental Congress and was the first and third Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He is immortalized in American history as the first patriot to sign the U. S. Declaration of Independence in his large, flourishing signature. So distinctive, that the term "John Hancock" has become a synonym for one's signature. At the time of completing this document, Hancock was working for his ailing uncle at the House of Hancock, a trading company which brought manufactured goods from England and exported whale oil, fish and rum. In 1763, the year following this document he became a full partner in the firm and upon his uncle's death in 1764 he inherited the business as well as thousands of acres of land and several slaves. The slaves were freed per his uncle's will and there is not indication that John ever bought or sold slaves."Shipped by the Grace of God, in good Order and well Condition'd, by Thomas Hancock by order of Sir Jeffrey Amherst in and upon the good Ship called the Britton whereof is Master.George Wilkinson and now riding at Anchor in the Harbour of Boston and by God's Grace bound for New York." Countersigned by shipmaster: "Geo: Wilkinson". This original shipping Document concerns a large cargo of foodstuffs being sent from Boston to New York to feed the British troops stationed there during the French and Indian War. Listed items include; beef, pork, bread, flour, butter, rice, vinegar, rum and wine. Sir Jeffrey Amherst was the Crown Governor of Virginia residing in New York at the time. He was credited as the architect of winning Britain's "Seven Year's War" and became the first Governor General of territories which became Canada. "There, I guess King George will be able to read that without his spectacles!" - J. Hancock upon signing the Declaration of Independence.

Rey Edition originale du Contrat social du tirage dit "B". 323 pages numérotées, avec le catalogue de l'éditeur M.-M. Rey au verso de la dernière. Vignette de titre de B. Bolomey gravée par C. Boily représentant la Liberté assise. Le faux-titre porte "Du Contrat social", suivi d'un point-virgule. Ce tirage est conforme à la volonté de Rousseau, qui, insatisfait au vu des exemplaires témoins (dit tirage "A"), demanda à l’imprimeur Marc Michel Rey de modifier la page de titre, texte et vignette, et de remplacer une note sur le mariage civil en fin de volume. Rey se plia aux volontés de l’auteur et réimprima la page de titre ainsi que les pages de fin (321-324) en ajoutant à la page 324 restée vierge, le catalogue de ses publications. Seuls quelques exemplaires du premier tirage A ont survécu. L’oeuvre maîtresse de la philosophie politique, le plus célèbre des traités du XVIIIe siècle, défense de la démocratie au cœur des Lumières, inspirateur direct de la Révolution française. Ce livre, dont "la puissance philosophique est immense", demeure la référence obligée de toute réflexion sur l’essence et les fondements de la démocratie. (Dufour, n° 133.

        Recreaciones geographicas, y nuevo compendio de Geographia moderna: Contiene la descripcion natural, politica, y artificiosa del Globo Terraqueo; sesenta y quatro problemas, y ochenta theoremas, para la practica de los mapas, y globos geographicos.

      Salamanca: Antonio Villargordo, []. 1762 - Octavo (15 x 11 cm): [16], 262, [42], 2 folding engraved plates, bearing licence date of 15 March 1762, contemporary limp vellum with title inked in manuscript to spine (very good, slight wear at foot of spine, lacking ties). Extremely rare 18th Century Spanish treatise on geography and the use of maps and globe, published in Salamanca. This exceedingly rare and fascinating work, printed in Salamanca during the era of La Ilustración (Spanish Enlightenment), is a detailed and comprehensive treatise on global geography and its practical applications, including how to read maps and use globes. The work is divided into four main parts, namely: 1. ‘Introduccion’ (pp. 1-10); 2. La Descripcion Politica de la Terra’ (pp.11-161), which describes the political geography of the world; 3. ‘Descripcion Artificiosa de la Terra’ (pp.162-205), which includes a description of the physical world and how it can be classified; 4.‘Practica de el Globo, y Mapas’ (pp. 206-255), perhaps the most interesting aspect of the work, it presents a fascinating discussion of diverse elements of applied geography, in the form of 64 questions, asked and answered. Of particular interest, the work outlines the best way to use maps and globes. The work is concluded by a gazetteer of the latitude and longitude of various locations around the globe and two illustrated leaves of plates featuring 5 figures of the profile views of the world, an artillery sphere and globes. Importantly, the present example of the book is complete as issued. That being said, two leaves have been purposefully removed from the book (ff. 6 and 7), representing the ‘Approbaccion’ (Approbation). It appears that all surviving examples of the work have the same leaves removed, indicating that this was done in the establishment of the publisher Antonio Villargordo before the work’s release, ensuring the book as amended possesses a complete collation as issued. It is not known why these leaves were removed, but perhaps they featured a politically inconvenient passage or reference that concerned the royal censors during a period when all printing in Spain was highly regulated by both ecclesiastical and civil authorities. One of the examples of the work at the Biblioteca Nacional de España (Shelfmark: GMM/545) can be viewed on line, featuring the same two leaves as having been removed. Cristóbal Machado originally hailed from the Seville region and established himself as a watchmaker in Salamanca. It must be remembered that during the 18th Century watchmakers were imbued with great skills that could cross over into a variety of different disciplines, including instrument making, globe production and printing. During the 1750s, Machado became deeply involved in the academic life of the University of Salamanca and participated in a series of debates of the nature of geography sponsored by the mayor of Salamanca. Consequent to these debates, in 1758, Machado submitted a paper, co-written with Ramón de Guevara, to the Real Academia de la Historia entitled ‘Discursos critico-geográficos’ (Boletín Informes de la Real Academia de la Historia, Nov., 1899, p. 394). This paper spurred Machado to explore a grander study of geography, leading to the production of the present work. Machado attained considerable success as a watchmaker, with his pieces being offered to the Spanish aristocracy in the finest shops in both Madrid and Salamanca. He remained engaged in academic geography and towards the end of his life edited and annotated a Spanish edition of the treatise of Nicolas Bion, the French royal geographer, Usos o problemas de las esferas i glóbos celéstes i terráqueos, para el manéjo de éstos instruméntos (Madrid, 1790). The present work is extremely rare and was issued in only a single edition (printed 1762), erroneous references to a 1761 edition exist. We can find no records of any other examples of the work appearing in dealers’ catalogs or at auction during the last 25 years and we can locate only 3

        Kurzer, aber doch hinlänglicher Auszug der aller merkwürdigsten und wichtigsten, in dreyen Hauptmaterien und Abtheilungen zusammen gezogenen Stellen aus den Schriften des in Ternario Sancto hocherleuchtet gewesenen, und nun in der Glorie seyenden Jacob Böhms. Wovon die Erste Abtheilung den verkündigten Untergang Babels, die grosse Bekehrung der Juden und Heiden, und das darauf folgende herrliche Reich Jesu Christi; die Zweyte Abtheilung aber, die rechte, einem jeden Menschen nöthige, Wiedergeburt; und die Dritte und lezte Abtheilung die Bereitung des Steins der Weisen in sich enthält. [1. Aufl.]

      Frankfurt u. Leipzig, o.V., 1762. - 15 Bll., S. [31]-288 [so kmpl.], Kl.-8°, Pappband d. Zt. mit Rückenschild Ackermann III/109. - Der ungenannte Kompilator der vorliegenden Ausgabe soll der hessisch-darmstädtische Oberlandkommissar Sigmund Heinrich Güldenfalk gewesen sein, was sich allerdings nicht belegen lässt. Der Anhang enthält ein "Philosophisches Sendschreiben, Vom rechten und wahren Steine der Weisheit: Worinnen der ganze Proceß des philosophischen Werks aufrichtig angewiesen wird." Die Basis des von Hermetikern sehr geschätzte Werk erschien 1747 (vgl. Brüning 4519) als Nachdruck der "Idea Chemiae" von 1690. Dazu schreibt Hermann Fictuld im "Chymisch-Philosophischen Probier-Stein" bei seinen Kommentaren zur alchemistischen Literatur unter Nr.30: "Der Author davon ist bekannt, er hat als ein ehrlicher, kluger und weiser Mann gehandelt, und hat der Ordnung nach des sel. Mannes Schriften extrahirt, und in gewisse Classen getheilet, so daß, was alldorten weitläufig zertheilet ist, allhier in die Nähe gebracht worden." - Jakob Böhme (auch Jacob, 1575-1624) griff auf seinen Gesellenwanderungen mystische u. alchimistische Gedanken auf, las die Schriften von Kaspar Schwenckfeld u. wurde bei seinen Schriften auch von paracelsischen Ideen beeinflusst. - Einband leicht bestossen u. berieben; Rücken mit Teil einer Standortnr.; Vorsatz mit kl. Klebemarke; Titel mit kl. Stempel, sonst ein gutes Expl. - Sehr selten.

        The Matrons. Six short histories.

      Dublin: printed by Dillon Chamberlaine, in Smock Alley. [1762] - vii, [7], 15-148pp, engr. frontispiece. 12mo. Small old stain to lower edge of three leaves. Full contemporary calf, raised band, red morocco label. Armorial bookplate of the Marquess of Headfort. ESTC N504099 recording one copy only at Dublin City Libraries. The first London edition was also published in 1762. Edited, and in part translated by Thomas Percy, the dedication to The Matrons reassures them to not be 'alarmed at this address; no rude commonplace invective is here intended: and though the following stories may be thought to bear somewhat hard upon your sex, a moment's reflection will convince you that this miscellany is in effect a real panegyric; since to compile it (short as it is) we have been obliged to ransack the mouldy volumes of antiquity, and to take a voyage as far as China' It forms a collection of stories about widows who were false to their vows of faith to their dead husbands. The first two stories, The Ephesian Matron from Petronius, and the Chinese Matron from P.du Halde, are noted as 'new translations', and others are taken from G. Etherege, Benjamin Victor, and an unidentified Turkish manuscript. [Attributes: First Edition]

Homann in Nuremberg about the year 1702. Soon after publishing his first atlas in 1707 he became a member of the Berlin academy of Sciences and in 1715 he was appointed Geographer to the Emperor.

The Homanns produced a Neuer Atlas in 1714, a Grosser Atlas in 1737, and an Atlas Maior with about 300 maps in 1780. They also issued a special Atlas of Germany with full sized plans of principal cities, school atlases and an Atlas of Silesia in 1750 with 20 maps. Condition: Good, given age.

        [halftitle: DU CONTRACT SOCIAL;] PRINCIPES DU DROIT POLITIQUE

      Amsterdam: 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. See also Leigh, Unsolved Problems in the Bibliography of J.-J. Rousseau, Cambridge, 1990, who refines the printing history to 3 issues: (1) original title and note on marriage, (2) same note omitted and (3) new title and note omitted. 3 copies in NCC (Leiden missing halftitle (autopsy), Utrecht and UVA)..

The world famous tales and fables of Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695), neatly printed in verse, are joined by a 'Dissertation sur la Joconde' by Nicolas Boileau Despreaux (1636-1711); and the best work of the great illustrators & engravers Charles Eisen (1720-1778) and Pierre-Philippe Choffard (1730-1809). Justly considered one of the greatest examples of French rococo illustration. The Fermiers Generaux, an entrepreneurial financial association responsible for gathering and banking certain kinds of taxes, commissioned this edition of La Fontaine's zesty tales. Determined that the book should be the best of its kind, they allowed their agent, the Chevalier d'Agincourt, unlimited resources. It is still provocative to consider that patronage of the arts by this new plutocracy produced the greatest monument and triumph of this renowned age of illustration.
