[Sturluson, Snorri]; [Percy, Thomas]
London: Printed for R. and J. Dodsley, in Pall-mall, 1763. Very good.. Modern three-quarter brown calf over marbled boards, double-ruled gilt spine, red morocco spine label. Engraving of runes on title page. Introductory notes before each poem, transcriptions of Icelandic originals at rear. [16], 100 pages. Partially erased pencil ownership signature on title page. Binder's ticket before rear endpaper. Pages gently embrowned, a few signatures heavier, some leaves foxed. First edition of the earliest collection of verse from the Eddic and skaldic traditions translated into English. This book set out to prove that Norse mythology and culture were more than than their reputation in England as barbarian raiders. Editor Thomas Percy talks of the Vikings' "amazing fondness for poetry... cherish[ing] it with all possible care" (preface). It contains five samples of Norse poetry, including the first English translations of the HAKONARMAL from the HEIMSKRINGLA and THE DEATH-SONG OF RAGNAR (which contained a famously misinterpreted line leading readers to believe Vikings drank from the skulls of their defeated enemies). Percy would go on to published a collection of old English ballads, RELIQUES OF ANCIENT ENGLISH POETRY, that became a major influence on Romantics like Scott, Coleridge, and Wordsworth. An excellent copy of the book that began to shift the popular English perception of the Old North.

KLOPSTOCK, Friedrich Gottlieb.
London, Printed for R. and J. Dodsley T. Durham T. Field and J. Collyer, 1763. First edition in English, the first ten cantos of Der Messias (1748 73), all that had appeared at the time. Itself greatly influenced by Milton, no poetic work of the eighteenth century before Goethe s Werther was more acclaimed in Germany than this biblical epos, which introduced the cult of intense personal feelings that played so significant a part in the poetry to come (Bareikis 39). This English translation is dedicated to the King, and has a long list of subscribers, among them the actor David Garrick. As with Gessner, it is the work of Mary Collyer. The extraordinary success of The Death of Abel, and the high opinion many persons of distinguish d merit have entertain d of that work, render d them very solicitous to see the Messiah attempted in the same manner, and by the same hand; they therefore apply d to Mrs. Collyer, who began the arduous task; but had made no great progress, when a lingering illness, occasion d by the agitations of the mind she suffer d in writing the former work, unhappily for me, and for our children, put a period both to the attempt, and to her life (pp. ix x). The work was thus completed by her husband, the bookseller Joseph Collyer (who appears in the imprint here). A third volume, with six further cantos, appeared in 1771. By 1784, the book had gone through four editions and was out of print, even if contemporary criticism was on the whole unfavourable and Klopstock himself deeply regretted that his Messiah had been presented to the English in such an unsatisfac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible
Christoph Saur, 1763. Second edition. Hardcover. Large 4to. 5-992, [3], 4-277, [1] pp. Printed in German Gothic type. Full leather calf, spine in six compartments, two metal clasps remain on the front board, volume lacks the straps and the clasps on the rear board. Based on Martin Luther's 34th Halle edition of the Bible. Includes the Old and New Testament, the Psalms, Apocryphal Books 3 and 4, Books 1 and 2 of Ezra, and Book 3 of Maccabees from the Berleburg Bible. The second edition, printed by Christopher Saur II, the first edition having been published in 1743. Saur's family immigrated to Pennsylvania from Westphalia in 1724. Saur and his father advocated for Quaker causes via their printing activities in Pennsylvania. Saur was in charge of the bindery and of English language publications at his father's business. After his father's death, Saur II continued to publish their newspaper, their almanacs, and their religious books (bibles and hymnals, etc.). In 1773 Saur the II established a paper mill on the Schuylkill River, which would greatly increase his wealth and standing in British America. However, because of his later reluctance to participate in the American Revolution (due to his Quaker beliefs), Saur would have his house and properties sold off, and died poor. This is the first Bible printed in any European language in the Continental United States. The 1763 edition eliminated Saur I's postface and included a new Foreword. 2,000 copies of this second edition were printed. ADNB "Sower, Christopher, (September 1721-26 August 1784)".

GESSNER, Salomon].
London: Printed by Dryden Leach, for L. Davis, and C. Reymers Printers to the Royal Society, 1763. Scarce first edition of this verse translation of Der Tod Abels by the poet and clergyman Thomas Newcomb (1682–1765), dedicated to Edward Young, who had been Newcomb’s friend for over sixty years. The first English translation of Gessner’s epic was the much more famous prose version by Mary Collyer, published in 1761. Newcomb’s rendition in no way competed with the earlier version in terms of popularity (even if it is in verse; there was only a Dublin reprint), and the author earned brief derogation in Southey’s commonplace book: ‘This author was, by the mother’s side, great-grandson to Spenser: genius is not hereditary. He published very many poems, from one of which, on the Last Judgment, a few lines may suffice to show how easy it is to imitate Milton!’ Morgan 2265 (‘very good’). Small 8vo (154 × 98 mm), pp. [4], 201, [3]; complete with the final advertisement leaf; some offsetting from the turn-ins, else a good copy in contemporary calf, rubbed, front joint cracking but cords sound, spine chipped at head; ownership inscription to foot of title-page of Poet Laureate Robert Southey, Keswick, 29 Nov. 1822 (not located in the 1844 sale catalogue of Southey’s library).

TUCKER, Josiah.]
London: printed for R. and J. Dodsley, 1763. Octavo (202 x 126 mm). Rebound in modern boards, printed paper label to front board, edges sprinkled red. Some very slight foxing, a few pages lightly creased. A very good copy. First edition. Josiah Tucker (1713-1799) was an opponent of the Seven Years War. In this treatise he strongly opposed fighting a war to promote trade, declaring his hope that "our posterity may regard the present madness of going to war for the sake of trade, riches, or dominion, with the same eye of astonishment and pity, that we do the madness of our forefathers in fighting under the banner of the peaceful cross to recover the Holy Land" (p. 59). Tucker drew comparisons between Britain's own growing imperial concerns in America with the conditions that had led to the decline of Rome. He later developed these ideas, and advocated in 1766 the complete separation of Britain from her American colonies. The Case for Going to War was originally intended as a chapter of a large systematic book on commerce, which Tucker started in 1752 but never finished. The treatise was later translated into French by Turgot. Clark 29; ESTC T20025; Sabin 11310. [Attributes: First Edition]

The ship transported coins and gold and the mutiny was already planned before the ship set sail, by crew who felt mistreated. The ship ran aground before reaching the coast of Brazil. Some of the mutineers took the only rowing boat and went ashore, where their careless spending and lifestyle soon attracted the attention of the authorities. Meanwhile the ship was freed and the remaining mutineers sailed to Cayenne, where several were arrested. Meanwhile the Dutch East India Company (VOC) started the proceedings, intending to have the mutineers brought to Surinam or the Netherlands for sentencing. Seven where executed in Paramaribo, seventeen upon their return to the Netherlands and the remaining twenty one were acquitted. The mutiny drew one of the heaviest sentences in Dutch history.A few spots and minor water stains throughout, otherwise internally in very good condition. Binding worn, front hinge cracked.

Ferdinand Berthoud
ESSAI SUR L'HORLOGERIE TOME PREMIER ET TOME SECOND - 1763 PREMIÈRE ÉDITION par M. FERDINAND BERTHOUD (1727 - 1807) Il est né à Plancemont, Neuchâtel, Suisse. Après avoir fait son apprentissage avec son frère Jean-Henri, fabricant de pendules, il installe une entreprise d'horlogerie à Paris en 1745 et acquiert une grande réputation pour l'excellence et la précision de ses chronomètres de marine. J'ai réussi le travail de pionnier d'Henry Sully. Il est nommé horloger de la marine en 1762 et horloger du roi en 1773. Sur l'insistance du roi, il se rendit en Angleterre pour voir les chronomètres de John Harrison. Avec son grand rival, Pierre Le Roy, Berthoud a contribué au développement du chronomètre. Il est devenu membre de l'Institut de France et élu membre de la Royal Society de Londres en 1764. Entre autres oeuvres J'ai écrit Essai sur l'horlogerie en 1763. Je suis décédé en 1807 chez lui à Groslay près de Montmorency, Seine et Oise. Il s'était marié deux fois, d'abord mademoiselle Chati de Cean, puis mademoiselle Dumoustier de Saint Quentin, mais n'avait pas d'enfants. Son entreprise passe à son neveu, Louis Berthoud (1759-1813). Photo supplémentaire sur demande

Germantown, PA: Christoph Saur, 1763. Second edition. Hardcover. Fair. Large 4to. 5-992, [3], 4-277, [1] pp. Printed in German Gothic type. Full leather calf, spine in six compartments, two metal clasps remain on the front board, volume lacks the straps and the clasps on the rear board. Based on Martin Luther's 34th Halle edition of the Bible. Includes the Old and New Testament, the Psalms, Apocryphal Books 3 and 4, Books 1 and 2 of Ezra, and Book 3 of Maccabees from the Berleburg Bible. The second edition, printed by Christopher Saur II, the first edition having been published in 1743. Saur's family immigrated to Pennsylvania from Westphalia in 1724. Saur and his father advocated for Quaker causes via their printing activities in Pennsylvania. Saur was in charge of the bindery and of English language publications at his father's business. After his father's death, Saur II continued to publish their newspaper, their almanacs, and their religious books (bibles and hymnals, etc.). In 1773 Saur the II established a paper mill on the Schuylkill River, which would greatly increase his wealth and standing in British America. However, because of his later reluctance to participate in the American Revolution (due to his Quaker beliefs), Saur would have his house and properties sold off, and died poor. This is the first Bible printed in any European language in the Continental United States. The 1763 edition eliminated Saur I's postface and included a new Foreword. 2,000 copies of this second edition were printed. ADNB "Sower, Christopher, (September 1721-26 August 1784)".

It is here that the Gutenberg Bible is identified and first described. De Bure was the first in a long tradition of French scholar-booksellers" (Breslauer & Folter). "The long search for a rational order and the demand for a specific professional competence, found expression in the preliminary discourse with which Guillaume-François De Bure (1732-1782) introduced his Bibliographie. ... Taking note of the different viewpoints of academics researchers and booksellers, he defined the respective environments and duties of each, comparing the "science des gens des lettres" and the "science d'un libraire", which had as its focus the typographical characteristics of the book and its commercial value, in order to meet the needs of the "amateur" and the "curieux" and to determine the prices of books" (Balsamo).Very good set, some volumes with some occasional foxing. Bindings only slightly rubbed along the extremities. Breslauer & Folter, Bibliography: its history and development, nr. 107; Balsamo, Bibliography, pp. 128-134.
