Diderot, Denis.
Paris (1763). Folio 253 x 393mm. 3 pages of descriptive text & 11 loose plates with their accompanying text sheet. Slight browning to margins, a little spotting otherwise very good. § The 11 plates and descriptive text for the entry of Faiseur de Metier à Bas from volume II of plates. Plates are split into two sets, with 7 numbered plates in the first set and 4 numbered plates in the second. The set titles are Métier à faire des bas and Travail du bas au metier. There are 6 double plates in the first set (Plates 2-7), and two in the second set (Plates 1 & 2). Plate 4 from the first set has a 1.5 inch tear down crease.The plates in this suite are as much a guide to the use of the loom as they are to its construction. Indeed a great variety of 18th century looms are depicted, each helpfully annotated in the accompanying text sheets. Diderot visited most of the small ateliers and larger factories which were written on, often accompanied by Goussier, the 'third encyclopédist' and the motivating force behind the plates volumes. No publication before this or for many years after devoted this amount of attention to the mechanical arts. The Encyclopédistes were devoted to the propagation of new ideas and improved methods, and this suite is a fine example, also accompanied by the text entry for Metier by Chevalier Louis de Jaucourt.

The following plates describe further the complex art of spinning cloth, and the many different pieces of equipment used. The double plates, for instance, display the larger machinery of the drapery.

Wheelock, Eleazar
Boston: Printed by Richard and Samuel Draper, 1763. 55pp. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Modestly ex- library, with faint blindstamp of Dartmouth College Library in upper portion of titlepage, and inked four-digit number on verso. Small closed tear to inner margin of titlepage (no text affected). Mild foxing to first two and last two leaves, faint tidelines to pp.41-6, a few stains to margins (no text affected). Very good, with wide margins. The first installment in Eleazar Wheelock's series of publications giving the history of the first Indian school in America. This volume covers 1754-62 and was followed by eight more such reports, taking the story up to 1775. Wheelock (1711-79) was a Congregational minister from Connecticut. Here, he discusses the origins of the school and defends the missionary endeavor. "The long-term thrust of his career as an educator was shaped by the unexpected arrival at his home in 1743 of a Christianized Mohegan Indian named Samson Occom. Occom asked to be instructed in the classics and proved such an apt pupil that Wheelock, always an aggressive opportunist, developed a plan to educate and Christianize large numbers of Indians. Young male Native Americans would be trained simultaneously to become schoolteachers, missionaries, and farmers and young female Native Americans to become their future wives. When sufficiently prepared these Christian Indian teams would return to their tribes to spread the word of God. Wheelock's enthusiasm for the idea soon produced results. Colonel Joshua More (or Moor) from neighbor … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARUFFALDI, Girolamo
Venetiis: typographia Remondianiana, 1763. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Girolamo Baruffaldi was an 18th-centry Italian writer who was responsible for several novels and plays. However, in addition to his fictional works, he wrote a commentary on the Roman Ritual. Baruffaldi discusses Catholic sacraments, prayers, liturgies and exegetical writings. This commentary would be republished throughout the 18th-century. Notably, included is a fascinating section, 'De exorcizandis Obsessis a Dæmonio' describing the exorcism of demons!

EA Ziegenfuss II, 365 Cioranescu 53572 - Jean Baptiste René Robinet (Rennes 1735-1820), französ Naturphilosoph, Wegbereiter der Evolutionslehre. - "Robinets most important work. In certain of his statements Robinet appears to be heralding the theory of transformism and the idea that all living beings are constructed according to a single basic plan. Robinets work illustrates several important elements in the scientific thinking of the second half of the eighteenth century: the unity of nature, the chain of beings, universal dynamism and sensibility and vitalism. It also illustrates the role of Leibnitz in the development of enlightenment ideas on living nature. Robinets writings cast an interesting light on the genesis of the theory of transformism".

London: printed for R. and J. Dodsley, 1763. London: printed for R. and J. Dodsley,, 1763. Proposal to liberate and enfranchise slaves Octavo (197 x 121 mm), pp. 32. Rebound in modern boards, printed paper label to front board, edges sprinkled red. Pages lightly creased, small chip to p. 10 and final advertisement leaf slightly affecting text. A very good copy. First edition. An anonymous proposal to liberate and enfranchise the slaves in Senegal, recently captured from the French in 1758, and set up there a democratic government with British law. Arguing that free labourers are far more productive than those enslaved, and refuting any inherent idleness among the Africans, the author argues this will be a productive and prosperous area of Britain's dominions, with the intent that slavery would also be ended in Britain's other colonies. The tract is far ahead of its time, stating "let not the thought of putting blacks and whites on a footing shock the delicacy of any white person; for what is more unmanly, effeminate, or irrational than for a man to value himself on the colour of his skin? Is there any prejudice so foolishly weak and ridiculous?" (p. 13). Naturally his proposals were not put into action. A contemporary review stated that "the proposal is humane, and well supported: but some gentlemen who are better acquainted than we pretend to be with those countries, may possibly think the doctrine too dangerous to be executed" (The Critical Review, volume 18, 1763). The tract is scarce, with copies known in only eight institutions and no known auction records. ESTC T10 … [Click Below for Full Description]

L'édition française est aussi rare que l'originale anglaise. « C'est là un ouvrage important en ce que l'aventure y est présentée d'une façon très réaliste, moderne même, et que les événements, pour si extraordinaires qu'ils soient, apparaissent nécessaires, quotidiens, sans pour autant perdre de leur pouvoir d'émerveillement ... La description de l'anatomie des Glums (les hommes volants) est d'une minutie à faire rêver...» (Versins).

ABsence du frontispice du tome III figurant un montreur d'ours, le premier représentant un potier et son tour, le second un homme et une femme s'occupant d'horticulture. Reliure en plein veau blond glacé d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, pièce de tomaison e maroquin fauve. Tranches rouges. Un manque au mors supérieur en tête du tome III. Ensemble frotté. Manuel de pédagogie composé de 16 lettres adressées au Comte de ***. L'auteur prévient dans sa préface que la plupart de ces lettres avaient été composées avant la publication de l'Emile de Rousseau, et que l'indignation causée par sa lecture a poussé l'auteur a composé son ouvrage. Davantage qu'un simple outil pour la pédagogie, l'oeuvre de Poncelet est une vision de l'homme, une vision générée par l'esprit des Lumières ; on y retrouve donc les réflexions voisines de Montesquieu sur le climat et les lois et de nombreuses autres qui composaient l'esprit des Encyclopédistes. Chaque lettre obéit à un grand thème puis se décompose en autant d'éléments, ainsi du choix des connaissances, avec celles relatives au corps, et les exercices physiques, la nourriture, etc, celui du choix des maîtres, des loisirs et de la contrainte.

HAN, Yu (nickname: Han Changli)
1763. 40 parts in 12 vols. 8vo, orig. brown wrappers, new stitching. [China]: Liang yi tang, 1763. A rare edition of this anthology of early Chinese writings, collected by Yu Han (766-824), "a major figure in the history of Chinese literature, comparable in stature to Dante, Shakespeare, or Goethe in their respective literary traditions. He was among that small group of writers whose works not only became classics of the language - required reading for all those with claims to literacy in succeeding generations - but whose writings redefine and change the course of the tradition itself. Although Han Yu is best-known as a prose stylist - the master shaper of the so-called ku-wen style - he was a stylistic innovator in the many genres in which he wrote, including poetry. And he was a major influence on the literary and intellectual life of his time, an important spokesman for a rejuvenated traditionalism that later emerged as Sung Neo-Confucianism."-The Indiana Companion to Traditional Chinese Literature, Part One, p. 397. Han considered Buddhism to be of barbarian origin and an unsuitable religion for the Chinese people; he harkened back to the purity of Confucianism, a Chinese creation. Becoming the ancient prose movement's major spokesman, Han believed that one should study the early philosophers, histories such as the Discourses of the States (Guo yu), and even inscriptions on stone and bronze, such as the Qin stone drum inscriptions. Han Yu pioneered new genres of scholarly inquiry and led to a new interest in paleography, the physical remains of antiquity, and the compr … [Click Below for Full Description]

XX. 235pp. Plein veau glacé, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre en maroquin havane, triple filet doré encadrant les plats, filet doré sur les coupes, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque, petits défauts aux coiffes, coins émoussés). Edition Originale (second tirage à la date de 1763, le premier portant celle de 1762). Longtemps attribué à Diderot ou à Crevier, ce petit volume rare semble effectivement avoir été publié par Diderot qui en aurait écrit plusieurs passages (notamment les vingt pages de la préface et les douze pages concernant l'éducation des filles), le reste de l'ouvrage étant probablement dû à un jeune jésuite anonyme que Diderot aurait voulu aider (cf. l'étude détaillée de Palmer, qui avance notamment le nom de Thiébault comme co-auteur)."The mystery of 'De l'Education Publique' remains. But (...) it seems almost certain that Diderot wrote the preface, and possible though not necessary that he wrote the four pages on the university and on the education of girls, that Crevier was not the author as has been thought, nor yet Rivard, and that the book may have been the work of a young Jesuit who had literary and philosophical aspirations, who was in trouble in 1762 and whom Diderot was willing to assist so long as the matter remained a secret. (...) It shows the diversity of origins of modern ideas of the public schools" (Palmer).Bon exemplaire. Cf.

London: Printed by T. and J.W. Pasham, in Black-Friars, and sold by the booksellers, in London and Westminster, 1763. First edition. First edition, extremely rare, of Harrison's announcement of his invention and testing of his first accurate chronometer, the famous 'sea-watch' later called H4, which solved the problem of determining longitude at sea. "There has possibly been no advance of comparable importance in aids to navigation until the introduction of radar" (PMM). "Harrison's creation of this watch [H4] is the foundation of all subsequent chronometer developments" (Cambridge Digital Library, cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/ES-LON-00003). "The fact is that there is [an] element - the most important of all - common to H4 and all subsequent watches enabling them to perform well as portable timekeepers. This element, created by Harrison, is a high energy, high frequency balance and today forms the central feature of any successful marine chronometer. In essence, it is the ultimate solution to the Longitude Problem" (Betts, p. 44). Details of the construction of H4 were published four years later in Harrison's best-known work, The Principles of Mr. Harrison's Time-Keeper, but the Account is the only work of Harrison listed in Printing and the Mind of Man. The position of a ship at sea is given by its latitude and longitude. The former is easily determined by observing the Sun; the latter can be found by comparing local time with standard time at the prime meridian, but determining the latter requires a clock that will keep accurate time in the difficult conditions prevalent on a … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAINT-LAMBERT, J.F. -
1763. FIRST EDITIONS. Four works in one volume, 12mo, pp. [iv], 77, [1]; 71, [1]; [iv], 152, [2]; [iv], 67, [1]; contemporary marbled calf, spine gilt in compartments, label with gilt lettering, red edges (very lightly rubbed). I. The first separate edition of the article on "Luxe" in the Encyclop�die, by the French poet and playwright Jean Fran�ois, Marquis de Saint-Lambert, published in the same year as its first appearance. Saint-Lambert's essay seeks to present arguments both in favour of and against luxury, while giving an account of its characteristics. Saint-Lambert reports the arguments that luxury contributes to population growth, enriches states, encourages education, and increases the happiness of the people, while, on the contrary, it also leads to depopulation and the loss of a sense of honour and patriotism, before attempting to show that none of these arguments can stand up to scrutiny, and that the true effect of luxury very much depends on circumstances, although the effect of what he calls disordered luxury is almost always unfortunate. Saint-Lambert makes an effort to distinguish between good and bad types of luxury, echoing the concerns of Condillac and Diderot, although the only other philosopher to mentioned by name in the essay is Hume. II. First edition of this rare critique of Colbert, in which the author argues that Colbert had always been far from rejecting freedom of trade, and that, contrary to popular belief, that he did not consider such a rejection to be in the interests of manufacturers. The author worked in the offices of the Compagnie … [Click Below for Full Description]

HUME, David.
1763. FIRST DUODECIMO EDITION IN FRENCH. 18 volumes, 12mo; apart from some minor foxing in places, a clean fresh copy throughout; attractively bound in contemporary uniform French mottled calf, spines decoratively gilt with floral motifs (differing slightly on the final work), spines with contrasting red and green morocco label lettered in gilt (some green labels sunned); light wear to extremities, otherwise a handsome and highly desirable set. A very attractive set of the first duodecimo edition in French of the Hume's great History of Great Britain, from the beginning down to the Revolution of 1688. 'Hume's History was the first attempt at a comprehensive treatment of historic facts, the first to introduce the social and literary aspects of a nation's life as only second in importance to its political fortunes, and the first historical writing in an animated yet refined and polished style' (Enc. Brit.). Hume began writing his History of Great Britain with the Stuarts and only later turned to the Tudors, to be followed by the Plantagenets, therefore the volumes were not published in chronological order of the periods handled. This was also borne out in the publication order of the French edition. The Stuarts were translated by A.-F. Pr�vost, 'that famous novelist and Anglophile' (Mossner, p. 423), and first published in quarto in 1760. The History of England, under the House of Tudor, was translated by Octavie Guichard, Mme Belot, later wife of President du Rey de Meyni�res, and published simultaneously in quarto in duodecimo in 1763. In 1765 she also translated the Hi … [Click Below for Full Description]

JACQUIN Nikolaus Joseph
1763. First edition. 184 engraved plates (6 folding). Folio. A very good copy in quarter red morocco over blue paper boards, rebacked. [viii], vii, [v], 284, [14 index and list of plates], [ii], 184 plates numbered I-XXXVII, XXXVII*, XXXVIII-CLXXXIII. Vindobonae [Vienna], Ex Officina Krausiana, The first major work by the important Dutch botanist, Nikolaus Jacquin (1727-1817). This is a handsome copy, its 184 plates are all fine, dark impressions. After its introduction in 1735, Carl Linnaeus's (1707-1778) revolutionary botanical classification system was gradually adopted world-wide. Nonetheless, Linnaeus himself never travelled further than Lapland. However, several of his disciples did: the Dutch botanist, Nikolaus Jacquin (1727-1817), being one of them. Jacquin was born in Leiden, and through family connections ? their family physician, Gerard van Sweiten (1700-1772) was then personal physician to the Austrian empress, Maria Theresa (1717-1780) ? in 1752, he was invited to Vienna to complete his medical studies. There he assisted van Sweiten in the newly-established Schönbrunn gardens. Having impressed Franz I with a catalogue of the specimens in the garden, Jacquin was asked to travel to the South Antilles and South America, to report on his findings, and send back samples to add to Schönbrunn. Franz I stipulated that Jacquin should be accompanied by the gardener, Richard van der Schot, who would take care of the living specimens they collected. They departed Vienna on 9 December 1754, and the duo became a quartet when they were joined by two Tuscan bird hunters, Ferdi … [Click Below for Full Description]
