The signature under the red seal and below James Murray on page four is Hector Theophilus Cramahé (1720-1788), an very important person in the early history of Québec.

Cramahé arrived at Quebec in June 1759 and was to remain there more than 22 years, during which he ended the purely military phase of his career. Quoted from DCB online James Murray was one of General James Wolfe's three brigadiers in the British expedition against Quebec in 1759 and the Governor of Canada from 1760 to 1766. General James Murray In October 1760, became military governor of the district of Quebec and became the first civil governor of the Province of Quebec in 1764. As governor he was sympathetic to the French-Canadians, favouring them over British merchants who came to settle in the wake of the conquest. He allowed the continuance of French civil law because at the time the French outnumbered the British 25:1 and he needed to be careful not to incite discontent or rebellion. The dissatisfaction of British settlers led to his recall in 1766 (although he remained governor in name until 1768), but his precedents were preserved in the Quebec Act of 1774. Wikipedia.

Célèbre médecin de son époque (et certainement le plus lu de son époque) et se définissant lui-même comme un Hippocrates orthodoxe, Baillou (1538-1616) fut un grand épidémiologiste et spécialiste des pathologies infectieuses. On lui doit la différenciation de la variole et de la rougeole, la descirption de la coqueluche, et l'invention du terme de rhumatisme ; mais on doit signaler son remarquable intérêt à cette époque pour les maladies mentales, et on trouvera dans cet ouvrage de nombreux passages sur la frénésie, la manie et la mélancolie, ainsi que sur l'amour insane (érotomanie). Il croit à l'étroite interdépendance entre le soma et la psyché. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This work is the most important result of the Scottish aesthetic movement, and "the most comprehensive work on aesthetics of the 18th century since Du Bos' Réflexions critiques of 1719" (translated from Dobai, Die Kunstliteratur des Klassizismus und der Romantik in England II, p. 115). Kames's Elements of Criticsm (1762) "became a textbook in rhetoric and belles-lettres for a century, not least in America" (The Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century Philosophers). Thomas Jefferson had a copy of the third edition in his library (Sowerby 4699.)

        Beschouwing der wonderen Gods, in de minst geachte schepzelen. Of Nederlandsche Insecten, naar hunne aanmerkelijke huishouding, verwonderlijke gedaantewisseling en andere wetenswaardige bijzonderheden ...

      Amsterdam, J.C. Sepp, 1762-1860. 8 volumes. 4to (250 x 190mm). With 8 hand-coloured engraved frontispieces and 400 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary uniform half calf, spines with gilt lettered label, marbled sides (some minor restorations to spines). A complete set of the first series. "First series started by Christiaan Andreas Sepp together with his son Jan Christiaan (1739-1811) published in issues and in the format after the model chosen by Roesel von Rosenhof; Sepp followed his own path for the descriptions of butterflies and their illustrations. It has become the most important work on Dutch lepidoptera" (Landwehr 182). The author of the second series (1860-1900) was Snellen van Vollenhoven and of the final third series (1905-1928) Brants. Towards the end of the 7th volume the plates become lithographs./"Christiaan Sepp assured his public that the publishing house of Sepp would not copy any other author. When he made this assurance he had in mind the successful work published in Germany by Roesel von Rosenhof which went to several editions, including a Dutch edition. The Sepp house had high standards and refused to publish any plates that they did not think were perfectly finished, employing only the best artists; the Dutch printing houses were at this time the leaders for publishing fine colour works. The plates of this book are finely engraved and perfectly coloured. The book was once described as one of the most beautiful books ever published on Lepidoptera. When starting the work, the intention was to include all insects, but it became a work on Lepidoptera only. After the death of his father in 1775, Jan Christiaan continued the work, using many descriptions from his own personal observations. He started to collect insects and embarked on many collecting expeditions. He built a very fine insect collection and was an excellent entomologist, in addition to his skills as an artist. Jan Christiaan had inherited his father's skill as an artist and engraver, but his own son Jan (1778-1853), who helped him and continued the series, although a good artist, had not the same talent" (P. Gilbert. Butterfly Collectors and Painters p. 70). The Sepp family were the publishers as well as the authors of the present work. They published some major natural history works. The here offered first series is the most attractive part of the whole work./Added to the work is a portfolio with 35 hand-coloured proof-plates for the second series. Most are signed by van Vollenhoven and approved 'goedgekeurd'.//Nissen ZBI, 3808; Horn & Schenkling 20145; Landwehr 182.

Lesebändchen. Marmorvorsätze. 8vo. Seltene Ausgabe dieser Heidelberger mathematischen Abhandlung, erstmals im selben Jahr zu Heidelberg gedruckt und noch seltener als die Erstausgabe. - Der mährische Astronom Mayer (1719-83) trat 1745 ins Mannheimer Jesuitennoviziat ein. Er lehrte seit 1752 die Mathematik und Physik zu Heidelberg, wo er "a series of mathematical and physical works" (DSB) veröffentlichte. "Il entreprit un voyage scientifique à Paris, visita l'Allemagne avec Cassini, et, à la demande de Catherine, se rendit à Petersbourg pour observer le passage de Vénus. [.] Mayer était membre des sociétés savantes de Manheim, Munich, Londres, Philadelphie, Bologne et Göttingen" (de Backer/S.). "In 1762 the elector palatine, Karl Theodor, who was very interested in the arts and sciences, constructed an astronomical observatory for Mayer at Schwetzingen, his summer residence. In 1772-1774 a second and larger observatory was erected at Mannheim, then the capital of the electoral Palatinate. This observatory was well equipped for the time, with instruments from the best British workshops [.] Appointed court astronomer, Mayer was relieved of his duties as a theologian (the Jesuit order was dissolved by Pope Clement XIV in 1773, which made such a step easier)" (DSB IX, 231). - Einband mit unbedeutenden Wurmspuren, sonst sehr schönes Exemplar aus der Sárospataker Bibliothek des Kavalleriegenerals Ludwig Joseph Prinz zu Windischgrätz (1830-1904) mit seinem gest. heraldischen Exlibris am vorderen Innendeckel.

The publisher Roger Senhouse was Strachey's last lover, purportedly an intense and, it has since been suggested, sadomasochistic relationship.

      Printed for T. Becket and P.A. De Hondt, in the St, 1762 ; 1763., London, - 2 volumi in -4, pp. [16],xvi,270; (4) xxxvi, 248. Leg. piena pelle dell’epoca. Dorsi a nervetti con fregi oro e titoli su tassello. Tagli rossi. Frontespizi impressi in rosso e nero con vignette incise da I. Taylor. Il volume con ll poema dedicato a Fingal comprende anche: "A dissertation concerning the antiquity, &c. of the poems of Ossian the Son of Fingal". Es. molto buono. Prima Edizione. Il tomo II (Temora) contiene, su tre pagine manoscritte in chiara grafia dell’epoca, "Copy of a letter to the right hon.ble the Earl of D. _ Rome, August the 28th, 1764", nella quale si discorre sull’opera, commentandone l’argomento e i contenuti. Viene citata anche la traduzione in italiano. Provenienza: Robert Strange (1721-92) celebre incisore inglese, membro delle accademie di Roma, Firenze e Bologna e professore dell'Accademia reale di Parma (ex-libris). Thomas Lumisden Strange (1756 - 1841), giudice capo alla suprema corte di Madras, figlio di Robert Strange (ex-libris). Fingal è il protagonista dei Poemi di Ossian resi famosi dal poeta scozzese James Macpherson (tra il 1760 e il 1765 ne pubblicò varie raccolte, presentandole come traduzioni degli stessi), che li fece passare come una rielaborazione dei testi di un leggendario bardo gaelico, da lui raccolti nelle Highlands. Attraverso il racconto delle gesta di Fingal e di un altro leggendario eroe irlandese, Chú Chulainn, Il ciclo di Ossian, esprime una nostalgia per l'eroico passato pagano, l'esaltazione delle virtù guerriere e cavalleresche. Notevole fu la sua influenza sulla poesia del Romanticismo, Goethe ne fu grande ammiratore, e Ugo Foscolo, ne riportò alcuni spunti nei suoi Sepolcri. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker's Director

      London: Printed for the Author, 1762. Third edition. Folio. 200 copper-plate engravings, plus dedication, of furniture designs. 19th-century full paneled mottled calf, gilt, to period style, by Rivière and Son, a.e.g.; joints strengthened, scuffing to boards and rubbing to tips, Batsford book ticket; plate 173 repaired at top margin; else a fine copy in a handsome binding . The third, and best, edition - with an additional 40 plates - of the highly influential furniture-pattern book by the London cabinetmaker, Thomas Chippendale, who was, in fact, the first English cabinetmaker to ever publish his designs. "His special claim for artistic fame is as a brilliantly original, innovative, and influential designer who also made masterpieces of furniture. His designs were plagiarized from at least the early Victorian period by the publisher John Weale, and more or less free adaptations from The Director have been a staple product of commercial furniture makers since the mid-nineteenth century" - ODNB
