        Beyträge zur Kriegs-Kunst und Geschichte des Krieges von 1756 bis 1763

      - Finely engraved vignette on titles, each different, 48 engraved plates of maps, plans, & charts (six heightened in color) on 40 folding sheets, & one folding printed table. Six vols. Large 4to, cont. speckled boards (several with minor rubbing), red vellum lettering pieces on spines. Freiberg: Barthel, 1775-76-78-81-84-86. First edition of this outstanding history of the German campaigns during the Seven Years' War, describing the strategies employed during the conflict. Tielke (1731-87), wrote a series of works on military history and science based on his extensive theoretical knowledge, as well as first-hand combat experience - he was wounded at the Battle of Torgau. Tielke not only recapitulates the decisive moments of these campaigns, he also furnishes case studies regarding tactics, artillery, and fortification. The present work received much praise for its precise methodology, presentation of arguments, and judicious use of historical examples. The finely executed plates include highly detailed maps and battle-plans, including those for Schweidnitz and Maxen, plans and cross-sections of fortifications, and charts of formations and their evolution during the course of the battles. Many of the plates contain complex diagrams, highlighting trajectories and lines-of-sight, and are clearly intended for the instruction of field engineers. A fine copy. ? A.D.B., Vol. 38, pp. 286-88. Jähns 1870f.: "Die wissenschaftliche Gründlichkeit der Beiträge, die Sicherheit der Behandlung, die Genauigkeit in den Angaben und nicht zum wenigsten die kluge und massvolle Art, in welcher der Verfasser die geschichtliche Darstellung für seine theoretischen Anschauungen nutzbar macht, verschafften dem votrefflichen Werke den lebhaften Beifall aller Einsichtigen?In so lehrreicher Weise wie dieser Ingenieur für sein Fach hat kein damaliger Taktiker Friedrichs Feldzüge für das seinige ausgebeutet.".

Le Livournais Angelo (1716-1802, que Gelli appelle Malevolti) est un praticien italien suivant les préceptes de l'école française qu'il avait étudiés pendant un séjour de plusieurs années fait à Paris (il y fréquenta la salle d'armes de Teillagorry). Pendant sa résidence à Londres, à partir de 1755 (il devint maître d'armes des enfants de George III), il hébergea le chevalier d'Eon pour qu'il l'aidât à rédiger son traité, et le texte est considéré comme une rédaction à quatre mains. La salle d'armes que l'Italien ouvrit ensuite dans Haymarket jouit vite d'une grande réputation. Angelo mourut avec le titre de Directeur de l'Escrime en Angleterre.

The second plate reproduces a pair of facsimile tablet fragments from the Corpus Juris Civilis. It relates to a discussion of issues dealing with transcription and philology. The work concludes with a detailed index. The laid-in items are a slip of notes with references to this book and a circular for Quellen and Forschungen zur Strafrechtsgeschichte, a German legal journal.

        Cavelier & Fils, Autograph Letter Signed to Auguste Chouteau Nouvelle Orleans, August 16, 1806

      quarto, two page autograph letter signed, old folds and creases otherwise very good. Rene Auguste Chouteau, to whom this letter was written, was assistant to Pierre Laclede in the founding of St. Louis in 1763-1764. For some time, under the Spanish regime, he and his half brother Pierre traded among the Osage Indians, but chiefly he was identified with St. Louis, of which by his death in 1829 he had become the wealthiest citizen and largest landholder. Born in New Orleans, he had connections there all his life, particularly in the mercantile field, as exemplified by the present letter, which is written in French. Cavelier & Fils were the agents of the fur traders in New Orleans. This letter replies to a letter of May 26th, received by "le Courrier," in which Chouteau had ordered various goods. It touches on various business affairs and also mentions two names significant in the history of the fur trade, "Mr. Robidou," the elder Joseph Robidoux, and "James Makay", the former Nor'Wester who a decade earlier had headed operations on the upper Missouri of the "Missouri Company" and by this time, had become a solid citizen of St. Louis.

        Déscription géographique de la Guyane, contenant les possessions et les etablissemens des Francois, des Espagnols, des Portugais, des Hollandois dans ces vastes pays. Le climat, les productions de la terre et des animaux

      L'Iimprimerie de Didot, Paris 1763 - Printed title+engraved title+iii-xiv+294+[2] pages with 20 maps (8 folding) and 10 plates. Quarto (10 1/4" x 8") bound in quarter leather over paste paper boards with five raised spine bands with gilt lettering in red label. Provence The Explorers Club Collection. (Sabin 4551) First edition. Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703 – 21 March 1772) was a French hydrographer, geographer, and member of the French intellectual group called the philosophes. In 1721, at age 18, he was appointed hydrographer (chief cartographer) to the French Navy. In August 1741, he became the first Ingénieur de la Marine of the Depot des cartes et plans de la Marine (the French Hydrographical Office) and was named Official Hydrographer of the French King. During his reign the Depot came out with prodigious amount of charts and maps among which was a large folio format sea-charts of France, the Neptune Francois. He also produced a number of sea-atlases of the world, e.g., the Atlas Maritime and the Hydrographie Francaise. These gained fame, distinction and respect all over Europe and were republished throughout the 18th and even in the succeeding century. Bellin set a very high standard of workmanship and accuracy thus gaining for France a leading role in European cartography and geography. Many of his maps were copied by other mapmakers of Europe. Spaniards explored the Guiana coast in 1500 and settled the area around Cayenne in 1503. French merchants from Rouen opened a trading centre in the coastal village of Sinnamary in 1624, followed by others from Rouen or Paris who founded Cayenne in 1643. The Treaty of Breda awarded the territory to France in 1667, and the Dutch, who had occupied Cayenne in 1664, but were expelled in 1676. French Guiana’s cultural milieu reflects the diverse background of the resident ethnic communities. Indigenous and African crafts, customs, and arts predominate among their respective peoples. A distinctive mixed-Creole culture is dominant in the urban areas, highlighted by brilliantly coloured and distinctively patterned costumes; dances reflecting African, East Indian, and French 18th-century influence; and festivals. This is a fine account of Guiana and the surrounding region, with discussion of the flora and fauna, indigenous peoples, and geography, especially the major rivers. Among the maps is the town of Paramaribo and the colony of Surinam, and the course of the Orinoco. The Explorers Club is an American-based international multidisciplinary professional society with the goal of promoting scientific exploration and field study. The club was founded in New York City, and has served as a meeting point for explorers and scientists worldwide. In 1904, a group of men active in exploration met at the request of Henry Collins Walsh, to form an organization to unite explorers in the bonds of good fellowship and to promote the work of exploration by every means in its power. Among these men were Adolphus Greely, Donaldson Smith, Henry Collins Walsh, Carl Lumholtz, Marshall Saville, Frederick Dellenbaugh, and David Brainard. After several further informal meetings, The Explorers Club was incorporated on October 25, 1905. Women were first admitted in 1981, with a class including Sylvia Earle and Kathryn Sullivan. Condition: Printed title soiled and one corner with a restored loss, some finger-soiling to first few leaves, three maps with pale staining, several of the folding maps with Explorers Club blindstamps, boards lightly rubbed, 20th century quarter bind else a very good copy.

        [A remarkable collection of Colonial Virginia laws and imprints covering the years 1748 to 1763]

      Williamsburg: William Hunter or Joseph Royle, 1763. 24 imprints, with individual paginations provided in the listing below. Folio. Bound to style in three quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt, leather label. Contemporary manuscript notes, mainly to earlier laws.An extraordinary collection of early Virginia laws and imprints.An excellent run of colonial Virginia laws and imprints from the press of William Hunter, the largest single group of early Virginia imprints to appear on the market since at least World War II. Hunter was the second printer in Virginia, following William Parks, who died in 1749. Hunter did not begin to print until late 1750, and his early output was scanty; he did not get the contract to print the Virginia statutes until 1752. This transition explains why Hunter did not print the 1748 acts found here until 1753. Hunter was succeeded in 1761 by Joseph Royle, who was the only printer in Virginia until 1765. This volume contains about one third of all the imprints recorded by Berg between 1753 and 1763.There is much on slavery. The first act printed here is entitled, "An Act declaring the Negro, Mulatto, and Indian Slaves, within this Dominion, to be Real Estate." Other laws define who shall be slaves, provide regulations for handling runaway slaves, slave duties, and so on. Other laws relate to tobacco, the College of William and Mary, land purchases from the Nottoway Indians, and much more.Beginning in 1754, laws relating to the military begin to appear, commensurate with the start of the French and Indian War in that year. Such laws concentrate on militia-building, raising revenue for "the Protection of His Majesty's Subjects on the Frontiers of this Colony," with additional laws such as "An Act for preventing and repelling the hostile Incursions of the Indians, at Enmity with the Inhabitants of this Colony," an amendment to "An Act for making Provision against Invasions and Insurrections," "An Act to enable certain Persons to contract for the Transportation of the Neutral French to Great-Britain," "An Act for preventing Mutiny and Desertions," "An Act for granting an Aid to his Majesty, for the better Protection and Defence of this Colony..." and others. All of these are acts critical to the French and Indian war, and to the career of George Washington and other later leaders of the Revolution.Many more acts relate to land, tobacco, western expansion, and slaves; an accurate catalogue of the obsessions of the Virginia planter class,Additionally, this copy holds extensive near-contemporary annotations by a William Green, the marginalia dated 1837 next to his signature. Green writes about the printing history of Virginia laws, and how this particular book relates to previously-printed legal works that seem to cover the same span of years. His annotations fill the front pastedown, both sides of the front free endpaper, and the margins of the first leaf of text, with occasional marginal annotations throughout. A transcript of his notes on the preliminary leaves is laid in.The individual imprints are as follows:1) Acts of Assembly, now in force, in Virginia.

        A remarkable collection of Colonial Virginia laws and imprints covering the years 1748 to 1763]

      William Hunter or Joseph Royle, Williamsburg 1763 - 24 imprints, with individual paginations provided in the listing below. Folio. Bound to style in three quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt, leather label. Contemporary manuscript notes, mainly to earlier laws. An extraordinary collection of early Virginia laws and imprints. An excellent run of colonial Virginia laws and imprints from the press of William Hunter, the largest single group of early Virginia imprints to appear on the market since at least World War II. Hunter was the second printer in Virginia, following William Parks, who died in 1749. Hunter did not begin to print until late 1750, and his early output was scanty; he did not get the contract to print the Virginia statutes until 1752. This transition explains why Hunter did not print the 1748 acts found here until 1753. Hunter was succeeded in 1761 by Joseph Royle, who was the only printer in Virginia until 1765. This volume contains about one third of all the imprints recorded by Berg between 1753 and 1763. There is much on slavery. The first act printed here is entitled, "An Act declaring the Negro, Mulatto, and Indian Slaves, within this Dominion, to be Real Estate." Other laws define who shall be slaves, provide regulations for handling runaway slaves, slave duties, and so on. Other laws relate to tobacco, the College of William and Mary, land purchases from the Nottoway Indians, and much more. Beginning in 1754, laws relating to the military begin to appear, commensurate with the start of the French and Indian War in that year. Such laws concentrate on militia-building, raising revenue for "the Protection of His Majesty's Subjects on the Frontiers of this Colony," with additional laws such as "An Act for preventing and repelling the hostile Incursions of the Indians, at Enmity with the Inhabitants of this Colony," an amendment to "An Act for making Provision against Invasions and Insurrections," "An Act to enable certain Persons to contract for the Transportation of the Neutral French to Great-Britain," "An Act for preventing Mutiny and Desertions," "An Act for granting an Aid to his Majesty, for the better Protection and Defence of this Colony." and others. All of these are acts critical to the French and Indian war, and to the career of George Washington and other later leaders of the Revolution. Many more acts relate to land, tobacco, western expansion, and slaves; an accurate catalogue of the obsessions of the Virginia planter class, Additionally, this copy holds extensive near-contemporary annotations by a William Green, the marginalia dated 1837 next to his signature. Green writes about the printing history of Virginia laws, and how this particular book relates to previously-printed legal works that seem to cover the same span of years. His annotations fill the front pastedown, both sides of the front free endpaper, and the margins of the first leaf of text, with occasional marginal annotations throughout. A transcript of his notes on the preliminary leaves is laid in. The individual imprints are as follows: 1) Acts of Assembly, now in force, in Virginia.

      Paris: L'Iimprimerie de Didot, 1763 Printed title+engraved title+iii-xiv+294+[2] pages with 20 maps (8 folding) and 10 plates. Quarto (10 1/4" x 8") bound in quarter leather over paste paper boards with five raised spine bands with gilt lettering in red label. Provence The Explorers Club Collection. (Sabin 4551) First edition.Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703 – 21 March 1772) was a French hydrographer, geographer, and member of the French intellectual group called the philosophes. In 1721, at age 18, he was appointed hydrographer (chief cartographer) to the French Navy. In August 1741, he became the first Ingénieur de la Marine of the Depot des cartes et plans de la Marine (the French Hydrographical Office) and was named Official Hydrographer of the French King. During his reign the Depot came out with prodigious amount of charts and maps among which was a large folio format sea-charts of France, the Neptune Francois. He also produced a number of sea-atlases of the world, e.g., the Atlas Maritime and the Hydrographie Francaise. These gained fame, distinction and respect all over Europe and were republished throughout the 18th and even in the succeeding century. Bellin set a very high standard of workmanship and accuracy thus gaining for France a leading role in European cartography and geography. Many of his maps were copied by other mapmakers of Europe.Spaniards explored the Guiana coast in 1500 and settled the area around Cayenne in 1503. French merchants from Rouen opened a trading centre in the coastal village of Sinnamary in 1624, followed by others from Rouen or Paris who founded Cayenne in 1643. The Treaty of Breda awarded the territory to France in 1667, and the Dutch, who had occupied Cayenne in 1664, but were expelled in 1676. French Guiana's cultural milieu reflects the diverse background of the resident ethnic communities. Indigenous and African crafts, customs, and arts predominate among their respective peoples. A distinctive mixed-Creole culture is dominant in the urban areas, highlighted by brilliantly coloured and distinctively patterned costumes; dances reflecting African, East Indian, and French 18th-century influence; and festivals. This is a fine account of Guiana and the surrounding region, with discussion of the flora and fauna, indigenous peoples, and geography, especially the major rivers. Among the maps is the town of Paramaribo and the colony of Surinam, and the course of the Orinoco.The Explorers Club is an American-based international multidisciplinary professional society with the goal of promoting scientific exploration and field study. The club was founded in New York City, and has served as a meeting point for explorers and scientists worldwide. In 1904, a group of men active in exploration met at the request of Henry Collins Walsh, to form an organization to unite explorers in the bonds of good fellowship and to promote the work of exploration by every means in its power. Among these men were Adolphus Greely, Donaldson Smith, Henry Collins Walsh, Carl Lumholtz, Marshall Saville, Frederick Dellenbaugh, and David Brainard. After several further informal meetings, The Explorers Club was incorporated on October 25, 1905. Women were first admitted in 1981, with a class including Sylvia Earle and Kathryn Sullivan.Condition:Printed title soiled and one corner with a restored loss, some finger-soiling to first few leaves, three maps with pale staining, several of the folding maps with Explorers Club blindstamps, boards lightly rubbed, 20th century quarter bind else a very good copy.

        Plan de la ville et fauxbourgs de Paris divisé en 20. quartiers

      - Chez L'auteur, à Paris 1763, in-4 (23x28,5cm), relié. - Prima edizione, illustrata con un titolo frontespizio di Monnet, un piano generale di Parigi volantino - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale, rare, illustrée d'un titre-frontispice de Monnet, d'un plan général de Paris dépliant et de 34 cartes de détail sur doubles pages ; 8 doubles-pages gravées des noms de rues, places, hôtels, etc. Reliure pastiche à la bradel plein papier à la colle bleu. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge ancien. Traces de mouillures jaunes en marge de bas de page de trois pages doubles de la table ; même trace de mouillure sur la planche double des noms des 20 quartiers. Toutes les pages sont montées sur onglets. Notre exemplaire est bien complet des huit double-pages de table alphabétique gravée Des Rues, Culs de Sacs, Passages, Places Publiques, Carefours, Quays, Ports, Ponts, Portes, Marchez, Paroisses, Chappelle, couvents et communautées d'Hommes, Seminaires, Colleges, Couvents et communautées de Filles, Hopitaux, Maisons Royales, Hotels, Boëtes aux Lettres et autres Lieux et Remarques. Sans le complément des six double-pages de tables des Messageries, coches et carrosses du Royaume, jointes à certains exemplaires. La planche 5 semble manquante mais elle ne l'est pas, le frontispice étant la planche 5, preuve étant qu'elle porte la pagination 21, 22, place de la planche 5. On considère qu'il s'agit du premier plan de Paris exécuté à si grande échelle. En outre, les planches détaillent avec une grande précision l'ensemble des quartiers parisiens. Bien que les cartes n'aient pas bénéficié d'un nouveau relevé (l'ensemble est basé sur les travaux de Delagrive), l'auteur a corrigé et relevé de nombreuses omissions par ses observations in situ. Ce travail conduisit Deharme au poste de topographe du roi.

Plato Redivivus or a Dialogue Concerning Government Wherein, By Observations Drawn from Other Kingdoms and States, Both Ancient and Modern, An Endeavour is Used to Discover the Present Politic Distemper of Our Own; With the Causes and Remedies. London: Printed for A. Millar, 1763. [ii], 8, [1] iv-x, 284 pp. Complete. Small woodcut image of Phrygian cap at foot of p. 8. (This was a classic Hollis device.) 12mo. (6-1/4" x 4"). Contemporary speckled calf with recent rebacking, raised bands, blind ornaments and lettering piece to spine, gilt tooling to board edges, hinges mended. Small scuff to front board, moderate rubbing to board edges, corners bumped and somewhat worn, small recent owner bookplate to front pastedown. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, light foxing to a few leaves. Recent owner inscription to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy. * Fourth (stated) edition, actually the sixth and final edition, and the only edition by Hollis. Better known as a satirist and author of fictional works, Neville was also active as a politician and political theorist. First published in 1681, Plato Redivivus is cast in the form of a dialogue. It argues that the growing number of property owners in England will require a wider distribution of political power. It was recognized almost immediately as an important statement of English Republicanism. The edition by Thomas Hollis helped to renew this work's popularity during the mid-eighteenth century. A wealthy Whig author and political philosopher, Hollis produced handsome and affordable editions of works by Locke, Milton, Sidney and other seventeenth-century proponents of English liberty, which he distributed to institutions in the British Isles, Europe and the American colonies. OCLC locates 5 copies of this edition in North America (Boston Public Library, Columbia, Yale, Princeton, University of Chicago). English Short-Title Catalogue T76175.

London: Printed for A. Millar, 1763. [ii], 8, [1] iv-x, 284 pp. Complete. Small woodcut image of Phrygian cap at foot of p. 8. (This was a classic Hollis device.) 12mo. (6-1/4" x 4"). Contemporary speckled calf with recent rebacking, raised bands, blind ornaments and lettering piece to spine, gilt tooling to board edges, hinges mended. Small scuff to front board, moderate rubbing to board edges, corners bumped and somewhat worn, small recent owner bookplate to front pastedown. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, light foxing to a few leaves. Recent owner inscription to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy. $950. * Fourth (stated) edition, actually the sixth and final edition, and the only edition by Hollis. Better known as a satirist and author of fictional works, Neville was also active as a politician and political theorist. First published in 1681, Plato Redivivus is cast in the form of a dialogue. It argues that the growing number of property owners in England will require a wider distribution of political power. It was recognized almost immediately as an important statement of English Republicanism. The edition by Thomas Hollis helped to renew this work's popularity during the mid-eighteenth century. A wealthy Whig author and political philosopher, Hollis produced handsome and affordable editions of works by Locke, Milton, Sidney and other seventeenth-century proponents of English liberty, which he distributed to institutions in the British Isles, Europe and the American colonies. OCLC locates 5 copies of this edition in North America (Boston Public Library, Columbia, Yale, Princeton, University of Chicago). English Short-Title Catalogue T76175.

This finely printed folio edition was edited and annotated by Rev. William Rider. “The Christian Family’s Bible (17637), in three large folio volumes, contained lengthy comments by the editor. Rider also contributed verses to the Gentleman’s Magazine under the pseudonym Philargyrus… Rider’s other major work was A New History of England (50 vols., 17614), dedicated to George III. This work was designed to be an affordable and popular whig history of England, and contained lively engravings” (ODNB). With subscriber’s list and directions to the binder.

The design is traditional, but the quality of material and workmanship is so high, and the conventions are so delicately modified and consistently applied that the result is extremely impressive"" (Cambridge History of the Bible, 464).
