        A report of some proceedings on the commission of oyer and terminer and gaol delivery for the trial of the rebels in the year 1746 in the county of Surry [sic], and of other Crown cases. To which are added discourses upon a few branches of the Crown law.

      Dublin: Printed for Sarah Cotter 8vo (20.3 cm, 8"). xii, 412, [16] pp.. 1763 First Irish edition, following the Oxford first of the preceding year: one of the most authoritative and scholarly of such reports of the time, accompanied by examinations of treason, homicide, accessories, the writings of Lord Hale, etc. Cotter's printing seems to have appeared in two variants, as per ESTC; in the present example, the catchword on p. 406 is "to." Cotter was the daughter of Joseph Cotter and successor to his printing business. She was active from 1757 to 1767 and published/printed law, technical and religious books, belle lettres, and a wide variety of other productions. The trial mentioned in the title refers to that of those arrested for participation in the Jacobite rising of 1745, an attempt by "Bonnie Prince Charlie" (i.e., Charles Edward Stuart) to regain the British throne. (He had timed his effort for a moment when much of the British military was occupied on the continent by the War of the Austrian Succession.) Contemporary speckled calf, rebacked, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and blind-tooled tulip decorations between raised bands; hinges (inside) reinforced. Front pastedown and free endpaper each with one small early inked annotation (shelf and price?); first and last few leaves with offsetting to margins; pages generally mildly age-toned with a very few scattered light spots.

      Boston: Reverend the President and Fellows of Harvard-College, 1763. Half title. Contemporary half calf and marbled paper boards, raised bands. Binding rubbed and edgeworn. Contemporary gift inscriptions on front free endpaper, ownership signatures excised from upper margin of half title and titlepage. A few instances of ink notes, emendations, and cross-outs in the text. Some tanning and foxing. A good copy, in original condition. A presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "For Mr. John Lovell from his most Hble. Servt. S.S." Stephen Sewall (1734-1804) was professor of Hebrew at Harvard and was one of the leading scholars of his day, specializing in Oriental languages and Hebrew. In 1761, Sewall succeeded Judah Monis as instructor in Hebrew at Harvard, a position Sewall held for more than twenty years. The recipient of this volume was almost certainly the John Lovell who was the longtime headmaster of the Boston Latin School. This is the second Hebrew grammar produced in America, preceded only by a work by Monis published in 1735. Rosenbach asserts that the Hebrew types used in it were destroyed by fire in 1764. The final twenty-three pages are comprised of a study of Hebrew poetry. There are several early corrections in the text, possibly in the hand of Sewall or Lovell.

        Centuria Insectorum Rariorum quam. praeside. Carolo von Linné. submittit Boas Johansson.

      - Upsalia (1763). 8vo. (180 x145mm). pp. (6), 32. Cloth strip on spine. First edition. The 'Centuria Insectorum' (one hundred insects) is a 1763 taxonomic work by Carl Linnaeus, and defended as a thesis by Boas Johansson; which of the two men should be credited with its authorship has been the subject of some controversy. It includes descriptions of 102 new insects and crustacean species that had been sent to Linnaeus from British America, Suriname, Java and other locations. Most of the new names included in the 'Centuria Insectorum' are still in use, although a few have been sunk into synonymy, and one was the result of a hoax: a Common Brimstone butterfly with spots painted on was described as the new "species" Papilio ecclipsis.The specimens used by Linnaeus or Johansson in writing Centuria Insectorum include some provided by Dr Alexander Garden, a horticulturist from Charles Town in the Province of South Carolina, by Carl Gustav Dahlberg in Suriname, by Hans Johan Nordgren in Java, and from the collection of Baron Charles De Geer from the Province of Pennsylvania. The work appeared also in the 'Amoenitates Academicae'.Soulsby 2251. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [N.p., 1763. Quarto sheet. Separation at old fold, repaired on verso with contemporary paper. Minor wear otherwise. Very good. Croghan, a deputy Indian agent serving under British agent William Johnson, writes to an unnamed recipient concerning a map of the northern British colonies. This letter presumably accompanied the map in question, and both this letter and the map were likely sent to a cartographer or artisan of some kind; due to the date and the available resources, it is almost certain that the map to which Croghan refers is that of Lewis Evans. The letter reads, in part: "I Send you this Map wh. is to be Inlarged Takeing In all the province of New York to Connecticut River and as far back as the Limits of Cannada all the Jersey Pensylvaine Maryland & Virginia the Lackes & back Cuntry is properly & well Lay'd. Down in this & the Larger Scail its Lay'd. Down on the better, one Copey is for Sir William Johnson to Settle the Boundry with the Indians by the other is to be Sent the proprietors when the boundry is [pricht?] of, on itt." In the lower left corner is written in another hand: "The Map when Enlarged was 7 ft 2 in Length & 4 ft 3 inches in Breadth. Takeing in Connecticut River & the Massisippa all Virgina & Canda to the Lat. of Montreal." As indicated in the letter, the map was to assist in the boundary dispute between the British and the Native Americans, giving a probable date for the letter to circa 1763, around the end of Pontiac's Rebellion and the Royal Proclamation of 1763, which legally curtailed white settlement past the Appalachian Mountains. George Croghan (1718-82) was an Irish-born fur trader who became acquainted with the Great Lake Region Indians and their languages through his trading pursuits. Breaking the traditional modus operandi of British traders, Croghan traveled to the Indians, rather than waiting for them to arrive at a British post. This allowed him to spend time among the native peoples, whom he grew to respect, learning their customs and languages. In 1756 he began service as the deputy Indian agent under William Johnson, the British Indian agent in the area, a position he held until retiring in 1772. A fascinating document, which gives rise to the question of whether or not such a large scale map was created, and if so, does it still exist somewhere.

      Dublin, 1763. Contemporary speckled calf, gilt leather label. Extremities rubbed. Minor scattered foxing and soiling. Very good. An interesting work, first published in Dublin, comprised of selections from the ANNUAL REGISTER from 1758 to 1763, this work provides an excellent contemporary account of the military events of the French and Indian War, especially the Siege of Quebec. This work is sometimes ascribed to Edmund Burke, as he was editor of the ANNUAL REGISTER during the period covered. The attribution to John Wright stems from the London 1765 edition which gives that name, possibly a pseudonym for Burke as author. With a large folding map of the British and French territories in North America, a folding view of Montreal, a plan of Louisbourg, and several engraved portraits, subjects of which include Admiral Boscawen, Gen. James Wolfe, George III, Prince Ferdinand, and Frederick III.

      Germantown, 1763. Quarto. Contemporary calf over wooden boards; metal clasps lacking. Dampstaining and wear to edges of first and last few leaves. Some light soiling to text. Contemporary manuscript notations to endpapers. Very good to near fine. In a cloth box, gilt leather label. The second edition of the first European language Bible printed in America, after the first of 1743. The text is based on Martin Luther's version by way of the thirty- fourth edition of the Halle Bible, with Book Three of Edras, Book Four of Edras, and Book Three of Maccabees supplied from the Berlenburg Bible. The present edition, rumored to have been issued in 2000 copies, was printed by Christopher Saur II, son of Christoph Saur the elder, a native of Wittgenstein, Germany. The elder Saur emigrated to Germantown, Pennsylvania and practiced medicine before turning to printing. It was he who printed the 1743 first edition. A nice copy of an important early American Bible.

      Boston, 1763. Early 20th century three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Bookplate of C.L.F. Robinson on front pastedown. A large, untrimmed copy. Minor toning and foxing; p.39 torn at edge, minutely affecting text. Pencil notes of Thomas W. Streeter, but without his bookplate. Very good. From the famous collection of C.L.F. Robinson in Newport, and later Thomas W. Streeter, an interesting copy of this famous work. The first installment in 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 discusses the origins of the school and defends the missionary endeavor. The school, founded by Wheelock, opened in 1754 under the name of Moors Charity School. In 1772 it was removed to Hanover, "where it formed the germ of the institution, known as Dartmouth College" (Field). At the conclusion of the text (at the bottom of the recto of the final leaf) is a contemporary manuscript note reading: "Memorandum. Mr. Wheeler has transmitted an account of ye school for 2 years to Dr. Gifford who his ready to communicate it to any enquirer." Andrew Gifford (1700-84) was a Baptist minister and numismatist who donated a collection of books and a pair of globes to Wheelock's school in 1764.

        Album of 18th Century miniature portraits of the Austrian Nobility].

      - A historically important an exquisitely rendered 18th Century collection of miniature portraits of members of the Austrian nobility, attributed to Karl Alexander von Schell, in the manner of Jean-Étienne Liotard. Manuscript portrait album, with 78 drawings (pen and ink and watercolour) on 66 sheets of paper and parchment, 2 volumes, bound in contemporary dark calf, each 16 x 22.5 cm. Condition: Overall very good; some portraits trimmed and mounted (without loss to artwork), probably by the author; some drawings with minor staining, otherwise in good clean condition; some leaves loose; fly leaves of volumes slightly stained; one list at the back of one volume with small worm holes; paper leaves bearing watermark of C.I. Honig, bindings rubbed at extremities. Presented here are two albums containing 78 miniature portraits, generally of members of the Austrian nobility, executed roughly between 1763 and 1775 in Vienna and Trieste. The portraits, drafted on both paper and parchment, are of exceptional artistic merit, in line with the style for the genre introduced to the Habsburg Court by Jean-Étienne Liotard. While unsigned, strong evidence leads to the attribution of the portraits to Karl Alexander Schell, a Swabian nobleman who was a highly gifted artist and who inhabited the same rarified social circles as the subjects of the portraits. The portraits are by the hand of a highly virtuous painter, as the precise lines of the draftsmanship are softened by the elegant use of watercolor accents. The visages are made to come to life, framed by the elegant coiffure, clothing and jewelry favoured by the contemporary elite of the Habsburg Empire. Some of the portraits of the female figures are drafted on parchment, giving the subjects a wonderfully luminous appearance. The portraits depict many influential figures in the Austrian Empire during the mid to late 18th Century, including many members of the higher nobility in Vienna and Trieste, most of them well recorded in novels and histories regarding the period. Also featured are Habsburg government officials, foreign diplomats and senior members of the clergy. A list at the end of each volume identifies the subjects portrayed. The album includes portraits of the members of eminent noble families, such as Lantieri, Zinzendorf, Herberstein, Kollonitsch, Harrach and Khevenhüller, amongst many others. Highlights include the portrayal of Anton Franz de Paula Graf Lamberg-Sprinzenstein, a well-known art collector and the director of the Imperial and Royal Unified Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Johanna Katharina von Zois, was the mother of the celebrated natural scientist Sigmund Zois.Michel de Pinet was a Consul of France in Trieste and an art collector, as well as a friend and colleague of the archeologist Ésprit-Marie Cousinéry.Maria Anna von Posch, together with her husband, the scientist Franz Anton Mesmer, was one of the earliest patrons of the young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Some of the subjects in the album, such as Emanuel Anton, Count von Torres and the playwright Pietro Chiari, belonged to the circle of Giacomo Casnanova, as did the countess Maria Aloysia Lantieri. Casanova met Lantieri in 1773 and wrote about her as beeing "as beautiful as a star; she inspired me with a passion that would have made me unhappy if I had not had strength enough to wrap my love with the veil of the greatest reverence." Lantieri also befriended Johann Ludwig von Goethe, who mentioned her in his account of his Italian travels. The portraits within the albums can be dated to approximately between 1763 and 1775, during the height of the glorious reign of Empress Maria Theresa. Three of the portraits are dated and all of the miniatures seem to have been drafted in either Trieste or Vienna. The volume that is bound in contemporary brown leather predates the volume bound in dark, almost black leather, and seems to generally feature portraits that were executed in Trieste.

Antique half calf and marbled boards. Very good. First English language edition of one of the most useful contemporary authorities on French Louisiana, based on the author's sixteen-year residence there. Jefferson owned a copy of this London edition, and instructed Lewis and Clark to take a copy on their expedition (Lewis borrowed Benjamin Smith Barton's single-volume second London edition of 1774). Le Page du Pratz offers a great deal of useful information about the Natchez and other Mississippi tribes, and his work as a whole has been the basis for many later studies of the period. "...Valuable for showing French claims to southern territory east of the Mississippi and for particulars concerning Indian nations there" - Howes. Of special interest is a short account of Louis de St. Denis' expedition to New Mexico in 1715. "...A curious mixture of history, travel narrative, tall stories, and reminiscences...touch[ing] upon almost every phase of Louisiana in his time..." - Clark. There is a folding plan of New Orleans and a "Carte de la Louisiane," which shows a large eastward- flowing Missouri River. HOWES L266, "b." CLARK I:75. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 2261. GRAFF 2463.

Light browning to text, faint dampspotting to a few leaves. Early owner signatures to front pastedown, early underlining to a few passages, interior otherwise clean. * Fifth edition. To quote Quincy Wright, "Christian Wolff was perhaps the most influential writer on international law of the eighteenth century. His influence flowed not only from his reputation in other fields - mathematics, philosophy and theology - from the voluminousness of his writings, from the notoriety of his philosophical controversies, but also from the logic, completeness and definiteness of his treatise on international law, first published in 1749, as the ninth volume of his Jus Naturae et Gentium [1740-1749]. A major work on its jurisprudence and basis in the law of nature, it is an important document of Enlightenment-era legal theory and an undisputed classic in its field. As Wolff recognized, it is also a rather daunting work, which prompted him to produced the Institutiones, an introductory guide and summary of his larger work. A well-received work that was soon translated into French and German, it went though several editions. All are rather scarce, however. OCLC locates 2 copies of the fifth edition in North America (at Brown and Cornell Universities). Wright, American Journal of International Law 29/3 (July 1935) 552-554.

Dedica dell?autore al nobile fra Antonio Montecuccoli. ?Contenente le leggi fondamentali: i precetti più purgati: le migliori aperture: le più essenziali terminazioni del Giuoco: una scelta Centuria di elegantissimi partiti: in somma tutto il migliore degli antichi e moderni Autori, e Giuocatori riformato, ricorretto, ed appianato conforme l?esigenza, e arricchito (oltre un Indice copioso ed esatto) di moltissimi avvertimenti, e dichiarazioni valevoli ad istruir pienamente chiunque desideri d?apprendere con fondamento le regole, gli artifizi, e le finezze di questo nobil Giuoco?. "Prima ed unica edizione" del trattato del Lolli, giocatore e teorico degli scacchi (Nonantola 1698 - 1769). La sua importante opera integra e continua quella dell?Anonimo Modenese (Ercole del Rio) "Sopra il Giuoco degli Scacchi" (1750), arricchendola di note e completandola con un centinaio di finali di cui molti originali. Vi sono comprese: una lettera di Del Rio, inviata ad un amico in cui espone alcuni precetti generali, considerata a lungo ?"carta fondamentale" per il gioco degli scacchi in Italia; una seconda lettera di Del Rio, in cui venne recensito il libro di ?"Philidor"?; alcuni commenti teorici delle partite; cento partiti pratici (finali), di cui 29 di Del Rio, e 11 dello stesso Lolli; tre partiti di sottilità (problemi) del Lolli. Il Del Rio fu uno degli avversari preferiti dal Lolli, e otto posizioni di partite giocate fra i due grandi modenesi nel 1755,1756 e 1757, vennero pubblicate nella presente edizione. Nell?Ottocento l?opera del Lolli godette di grande fortuna. Cfr.

To quote Quincy Wright, "Christian Wolff was perhaps the most influential writer on international law of the eighteenth century. His influence flowed not only from his reputation in other fields - mathematics, philosophy and theology - from the voluminousness of his writings, from the notoriety of his philosophical controversies, but also from the logic, completeness and definiteness of his treatise on international law, first published in 1749, as the ninth volume of his Jus Naturae et Gentium [1740-1749]. A major work on its jurisprudence and basis in the law of nature, it is an important document of Enlightenment-era legal theory and an undisputed classic in its field. As Wolff recognized, it is also a rather daunting work, which prompted him to produced the Institutiones, an introductory guide and summary of his larger work. A well-received work that was soon translated into French and German, it went though several editions. All are rather scarce, however. OCLC locates 2 copies of the fifth edition in North America (at Brown and Cornell Universities). Wright, American Journal of International Law 29/3 (July 1935) 552-554. This edition not in the British Museum Catalogue..
