        Pomologia, dat is Beschryvingen en Afbeeldingen van de beste soorten van Appels en Peeren . [with:] Fructologia, of Beschryving der Vrugtbomen en Vrugten . [and with:] Dendrologia, of Beschryving der Plantagie-gewassen

      Abraham Ferweda [vol. 1]; . en Gerrit Tresling [vols. 2-3], Leeuwarden 1763 - (13 7/8 x 9 7/8 inches). Titles with a typographic border printed in red, engraved arms on the dedication. 39 hand-coloured plates engraved by Jan C. Philips or Jacob Folkema after Knoop. Contemporary speckled calf, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, bands tooled in gilt, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, red stained edges A lovely set of the first editions of Knoop's fruit monographs: "among the earliest books on the subject to be illustrated with coloured plates" (Oak Spring Pomona). Knoop served as the head gardener to the Dowager Princess of Orange et Marienburg, near Leeuwarden. "[His] fruit monographs, apples and pears in the first, plums, peaches, cherries, nuts and soft fruit in the second, are among the earliest books on the subject to be illustrated with coloured plates, the Pomologia ones packed with a dozen or so varieties, each with a label giving its time of ripening . As descriptive records of varieties of fruit in cultivation, observed by a dedicated and scientific gardener late in his career, they are often cited by later authors" (Oak Spring Pomona). In all, Knoop published four monographs in the series, three of which are found here, with the fourth on herbs and vegetables being published in 1769 over a decade after the first part. Raphael notes that "the last part is very rare and most sets lack this final section on the contents of the kitchen garden." The plates, based on Knoop's own drawings, are made up as follows: in the first work are 12 plates of apples showing 103 varieties; 8 of pears showing 82 varieties. The plates in the second work include one plate with 2 quince varieties; 3 varieties of cherry on one plate; 3 varieties of plum on one plate; 1 apricot, 1 peach, 1 almond, 1 fig, each on a single plate; 2 grapes on one plate; 1 chestnut, 1 walnut, 1 hazelnut, 1 medlar, 1 mulberry, 1 raspberry, 1 blackberry, each on a single plate; 3 currants on one plate; 1 gooseberry, 1 unidentified fruit tree, 1 cornelian cherry, each on a single plate. No illustrations appear in the third part concerning trees. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 3766, 3767 & 3768; Oak Spring Pomona , p. 131. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        (Charlevoix';s) Letters to the Dutchess of Lesdiguieres Giving an Account of Voyages to Canada

      London: R. Goadby, and Sold by R. Baldwin in Pater Noster-Row, 1763. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. 8vo, 7 3/4" X 4 3/4", xiv] +2 +384 pages; contemporary calf covers.Rebacked with new leather spine and red leather label with gilt type. Complete with Errata leaf, which follows Table of Contents. Does not contain the map, of which most historians agree "map generally missing and probably not inserted in all copies". Overall condition is near fine.Another translation of Father Charlevoix's letters, in two volumes, which first appeared in English in 1761 as Journal of a Voyage to North America and one other and A Voyage to North-America (Dublin: 1766) Provenance: Signed by Englishman "John Cartwright", with scattered text notations and corrections apparently in his hand in contemporary brown ink. Cartwright (1740-1824) was a naval officer, political reformer and pamphleteer, who refused to serve against the American colonies. In 1774, he published "Letters on American Independence" siding against colonial taxation. Additionally, the volume is signed by Charles James Fox (1749-1806), noted English statesman, member of Parliment and orator who was also against the British forces and in strong support of the American colonies. Fox has pencilled his opinions regarding the valiant efforts of Cartwright on the free pages of this volume. Giving an Account of a Voyage to Canada, and Travels through that vast Country, and Louisiana, to the Gulf of Mexico Undertaken by Order of the Present King of France In the era that these letters were written, it was very common-place for the clergy to be under the support of one or more of the nobility who acted as sponsors and correspondents for the venturing missionary priest. That was the arrangement between Charlevoix and the Dutchess. His letters to her were lengthy and very complete in detail. While Canada was a vast and only mildly settled area under the tutelege of the Hudson's Bay Company, the "Louisiana" referred to in this title actually covered almost the complete half of American North America west of the Mississippi River. This land, almost totally unexplored and unsettled, was eventually to become the Louisiana Purchase and would be criss-crossed by the likes of Alexander Henry The Younger from 1799 to 1814 and the well recognized expedition of Lewis and Clark in 1804-06 with many additional trapper and hunter forays into the Great Plains and Indian Country. Charlevoix was the first writer and traveller who describes the interior areas of America. This is the early translation of Charlevoix's Journal d'un Voyage, which was first published in 1744 as the third volume of his Histoire de la Nouvelle France; however it does not include the Preliminary Discourse and excludes the first letter which describes his voyage from Orleans to Rochefort, commencing instead with the longer voyage from Rochelle to Quebec.

        The Reign of George VI

      London: for W. Nichol,, 1763. Duodecimo, pp. xxi, [1], 192; sig. A12 folded back to form initial blank. Contemporary mottled calf. Spine chipped at head and tail, joints cracked but held by cords, title leaf repaired at head with loss of first word "The", a few minor marks, a good copy. First edition of a scarce futuristic novel. "Uncanny in its choice of dates and in its prediction of the emergence of Russia and the United States as world powers, it describes a war between Britain and Russia (1900?-01) which escalates into a world war between the British Empire and a coalition of Russia and France (1917?-20) who between them have occupied much of Europe" (Howgego). The anonymous novel has sometimes been attributed to the Irish writer Samuel Madden, though only because that shares its futuristic concept with Madden's earlier work, Memoirs of the Twentieth Century (1733), and, as Howgego remarks, other than these two and Mercier's L'An 2440 (1771), "futuristic works of this character were virtually unknown to 18th-century readers". Although reasonably well-held institutionally, no copy of this title appears in auction records going back at least to 1975.

        Naturgeschichte des Mineralreichs mit besonderer Anwendung auf Thüringen.

      Gotha, J.C. Dieterich, 1763-64. 2 volumes (bound in one). 8vo. (8), 520, (14): (2), 318, (8), with engraved title vignette and 20 engraved plates. Contemporary calf, spine with gilt lettered label. Johann Wilhelm Baumer (1719-1788) was professor of medicine and physics at the Universities of Erfurt and Giessen. "General remarks on amber, copal, jet, p 28-34; marble, p. 185-8; nephrite, p 209-10; 'glass-like' stones include gemstones, p 221-59. Many text references to literature. While none of the information is remarkable, the organisation adopted by Baumer in an attempt to present his material in some systematic order is noteworthy. Thus he treats the materials of the earth as follows: underground fire agencies, including combustible and air, water agencies, salts, earths, stones, accidental forms of stones and petrifications, metals and ores, and mountains and large rock masses. (Second volume:) Supplementary material presented in the same order, ie, amber, p 25-7; jet, p 27-8; marble, p 117-20; and gemstones, etc p 142-62" (Sinkankas 481 & 482).//B.M.(N.H.)I, 113.

        TRAITÉ DE PAIX ENTRE LE ROI, LE ROI D'ESPAGNE ET LE ROI DE LA GRANDE-BRETAGNE, CONLU A PARIS LE 10 FÉVRIER 1763. AVEC L'ACCESSION DU ROI DE PORTUGAL

      Paris: Imprimerie Royal, 1763.. 56pp. Quarto. Contemporary red morocco, gilt, with gilt crest and floral gilt designs on spine. 19th century inscription on front flyleaf. Very minor foxing. A fine copy. The official French printing of the Treaty of Paris, the most important American Treaty of the 18th century except the treaty ending the American War of Independence. It closed the long conflict of the Seven Years' or French and Indian War, and marked the end of France as a power in North America, producing a major shift in the balance of power on the continent. The removal of France from the North American continent opened the door for the expansion of the British colonies over the Alleghenies and gave them a self- sufficient posture never before possible. The removal of the French counterweight opened the door for American Independence. By the terms of the treaty all of Canada except two small islands off Newfoundland was ceded to England, as were all French lands east of the Mississippi. All of Louisiana was ceded to Spain, and France's New World holdings were reduced to several Caribbean islands, including Martinique, Guadeloupe, and several smaller islands. At the same time, East and West Florida went from Spain to England, who also received the Grenadines and Dominica. A vital landmark in the political history of colonial North America, in its first edition and in contemporary French red morocco. HOWES D213, "aa." DAVENPORT 150. SABIN 19275. SERVIES 433.

        [Autograph letter, signed, to Jean-Baptiste Massieu].[Paris], 9 Floréal An 3 [= 28 April 1795]. Small 8vo (17 x 11 cm). Signed autograph letter in dark brown ink on laid paper, with a list of printed books in and on the Malay language.

      A letter written by Louis Mathieu Langlès (1763-1824), leading French orientalist (especially for the languages of India and the East Indies) and conservator of oriental manuscripts at the Bibliothèque Nationale (the former Bibliotheque Royale), to Jean-Baptiste Massieu (1743-1818), a former bishop and professor who had joined the Revolution and established the Temple de la Raison in Sedan. On 30 March 1795 the Convention had established the Ecole des Langues Orientales Vivantes and appointed Langlès director. He notes here that the Ecole was to teach Malay, but that "we" (meaning the Bibliothèque Nationale) have not a single grammar nor even a book in Malay except for one Bible at the Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal. He further notes that it cost him much trouble and money to assemble his own small collection before the Revolution, and that the Dutch printed several grammars and dictionaries both in Europe and in the East Indies. Massieu had apparently found a copy of François Valentijn's 1724 Oud en nieuw Oost-Indien for him earlier ("Valentyn sur l'Inde"), so he turns to him once again. Finally, as he also notes in his letter, he appends a list of works on Malay known to him that he would like to acquire for the library. It is headed "Livres à demander pour la Bibliotheque Nationale", occupies the last two pages, and contains eleven works ranging from 1604 to 1780, all printed either in Amsterdam or in Batavia (Jakarta) in the Dutch East Indies.In very good condition, with only a small water stain in one corner of the second leaf. An interesting letter giving insights into the state of knowledge and progress in studies of the Malayan language in Revolutionary Paris.
