      Cambridge: Printed by John Baskerville, Printer to the University, 1763.. 2 weiße Blätter, 552 (statt 573) Blätter (Blattgröße 48 x 32 cm) in zweispaltigem Druck. Titelblatt (ohne Signatur), Widmungsblatt (o. Sig.), Subscriptionsliste (2 S. o. Sig.), B - Zz2, 3A - 13E1, *a - *f1. Groß Folio 50 x 34 cm, brauner Original?- Kalbslederband auf fünf Bünden mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel und Rückendekor, Vorder- und Hinterdeckel mit zwei goldgeprägten Schmuckbordüren, sowie goldgeprägten Steh- und Innenkantenfileten, dreiseitiger marmorierter Schnitt, Marmorpapier-Vorsätze.. Die "Baskerville-Bibel gilt als eine der schönsten Bibeln die je gedruckt wurden. "John Baskerville (* 28. Januar 1706 in Wolverley, 8. Januar 1775) war ein englischer Typograf, Schreibmeister, Drucker und Mitglied der Royal Society of Arts. John Baskerville lebte seit 1726 als Schreibmeister und Steinschneider in Birmingham. Ein auf Japanlack spezialisiertes Lackierunternehmen, das er ab 1738 betrieb, machte ihn wirtschaftlich unabhängig und versetzte ihn in die Lage, sich mit Buchdruck und Schriftguss zu beschäftigen. Da ihm die zeitüblichen Schrifttypen, die sich in England seit William Caslon kaum geändert hatten, nicht zusagten, begann er um 1750 damit, eigene Schriften zu schneiden. 1754 wurden erstmals Schriftproben von ihm veröffentlicht; ab 1757 wirkte er bis zu seinem Tode als Stempelschneider und Drucker in London. Eine seiner ersten größeren Veröffentlichungen war eine Ausgabe der Werke Vergils (1757). Baskervilles neue Schriften fanden bald öffentlichen Beifall, schon 1758 wurde er zum Direktor der Cambridge University Press ernannt, was ein außerordentliches Ehrenamt darstellte. Einige seiner nächsten Hauptwerke sind weitere Editionen lateinischer Klassiker; berühmt wurden die Doppelausgabe von Juvenal und Persius (1761) sowie die beiden Horaz-Ausgaben (1762, erneut 1770). Während unter Baskervilles Zeitgenossen vor allem diese Klassiker-Ausgaben europaweit Aufsehen erregten und eine bedeutende Anregung für die Vollender der klassizistischen Antiqua Firmin Didot und Giambattista Bodoni darstellten, sind heute Baskervilles englischsprachige Drucke noch bekannter, besonders das Book of Common Prayer (1760/62) und The Holy Bible von 1763. (Wikipedia) The eighteenth-century English Bible of John Baskerville (1706-1775) is considered his highest achievement. It bears the date 1762 but was issued in 1763. It is set in the great primer type of Baskerville's own design on a page measuring 19-1/4 by 12-1/4 inches. One of the most beautifully printed books in the world. * * * 21 Blätter ( Lagen 6D2 - 6O) wurden entfernt (Psalm 104 - 150; Sprüche 1 - 31; Prediger 1 - 9). 21 Leafes (6D2 - 6O) are removed (Psalm 104 - 150, Proverbs 1 - 31, Ecclesiastes or, The Preacher 1 - 9).

        Catalogue des Livres de la Bibliotheque de la Maison professe des ci-devant soi-disans Jesuites

      xx (i.e. xxiv), 448, 59 pp. 8vo, cont. mottled sheep (head of spine & corners a little worn, minor rubbing), spine nicely gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine, arms in gilt on each cover of Guillaume-Gabriel Pavée de Vendeuvre (see below). Paris: Pissot & Gogue, 1763. An important sale catalogue of the library of the Maison Professe des Jesuites of Paris, founded in 1580. This library was comprised of many donations, the most notable being that of Pierre Daniel Huet (1630-1721), bishop of Avranches and scholar. Huet, whose scholarship was very well-known, made considerable scientific researches as well as classical studies; he edited the famous Delphin series of the Latin classics in about sixty volumes. Huet formed a great library of books and MSS. which he donated to this Jesuit house upon his death. When the Jesuits were expelled from France in 1762, the entire library of the house was offered for sale by auction. However, Huet's books were withdrawn before the sale due to the terms of his donation and were given by his heir to the Royal Library in 1765. This was one of the best and most complete Jesuit libraries in France. It numbered 30,000 volumes in 1754 (this sale catalogue has 7252 lots). It must be noted that this catalogue gives us the best idea of the contents of Huet's great collection. Very good copy. It lacks one of the two unnumbered pages following the preliminary leaves and the final six leaves, which are not present in most copies, listing the withdrawn books. However, bound-in at the end is the 8-page schedule of the sale of the Louis-le-Grand library, sold in the following year (I haven't seen this before). Guillaume-Gabriel Pavée de Vendeuvre (1779-1870), a native of Troyes, served as deputy in the French National Assembly for many years. ❧ Blogie col. 9.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GEORGE CROGHAN, CONCERNING A MAP OF THE AMERICAN COLONIES]

      [N.p. n.d., but ca. 1763].. [1]p. 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 this letter 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 Croghan refers to is that of Lewis Evans. 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, who 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 leads to the mystery of whether or not such a large scale map was created, and if so, does it still exist somewhere.

        A Description of Ventilators : whereby Great Quantities of Fresh Air May with Ease be conveyed into Mines, Goals [sic.], Hospitals, Work-Houses and Ships, In Exchange for their Noxious Air

      London: W. Innys, R. Manby, T. Woodward, 1763. Two volumes, octavo, five folding plates, some very light browning and two plates bound in upside down; a good set in contemporary speckled calf, a little chipped at spine, hinges starting but firm. First edition: Hales' ventilators became known as "ship's lungs", and were so appreciated by eighteenth-century sailors, and contributed so significantly to an improvement in seaboard conditions, that captains reported the crews needed little encouragement to work the machines. After a leisurely twelve years in residence at Cambridge, Hales (1677-1761) took up a parish and became heavily involved in local affairs, but this did not preclude him from a long and productive scientific career. His continuing fame was assured with these two books, which effectively invented artificial ventilation. Designed to draw fresh air into confined spaces, his machines were installed in His Majesty's ships, merchant vessels, slave ships, in hospitals, even at the court of King's Bench, the Drury Lane Theatre and Newgate Prison. As a result, there was a marked improvement in mortality rates, even among French prisoners-of-war held in English gaols, which led Hales to quip that he hoped none would accuse him of corresponding with the enemy. He was a pioneer in public health, a role that he apparently considered a vocation: his friend Gilbert White commented that Hales could barely be restrained from offering unsolicited advice to friends and acquaintances, his wide-ranging mind capable of discoursing endlessly on the perils of encrusted tea-kettles or on the best methods of maintaining the keels of boats to passing ferrymen. White records one particularly endearing act of benevolence, commenting that he once spotted Hales busy painting white the 'tops of the foot-path posts, that his neighbours might not be injured by running against them in the dark' (DNB). Hales was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1718.

        Ergänzungsbände zu den Hauptschriften, herausgegeben von Erich Beyreuther, Matthias Meyer und Peter Zimmerling. Ergänzungsband XVI: Auszüge aus des Seligen Ordinarii der Evangelischen Brüder-Kirche sowol ungedrukten als gedrukten Reden über biblische Texte, nach Ordnung der Bücher heiliger Schrift gefertiget und herausgegeben von Gottfried Clemens.

      Olms Verlag, Barby -65. Reprint: Hildesheim 2010. Mit einer Einleitung von Christoph Levin. 1763 - 35*/CII/1506 S. Nikolaus Ludwig Graf von Zinzendorf leitete die Brüder-Unität Zeit seines Lebens vornehmlich durch seine Reden. Der starke Einfluss, den die Reden über viele Jahre auf den Gang der Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine ausgeübt hatten, weckte nach Zinzendorfs Tod (1760) das Bedürfnis, durch gedruckte Ausgaben die Stimme des „seeligen Jüngers" weiterhin vernehmbar zu halten. Da Zinzendorf immer frei gesprochen hatte, kursierten meist nur Mitschriften der Zuhörer. Gottfried Clemens, der Inspector des Theologischen Seminars und Schloss-Prediger in Barby, übernahm die umfangreiche Editionsarbeit und bereitete die Reden zum Druck vor. Trotz teilweise erheblicher Eingriffe ist die Edition ein unschätzbares Dokument von Zinzendorfs Wirken und eröffnet einen Zugang zu seiner Theologie. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Chanvalon s'est aussi illustré comme botaniste et a donné son nom à un genre d'arbustes et d'arbrisseaux, de la famille des vacciniées, comprenant plus de 40 espèces qui croissent sur les montanges des régions tropicales des deux hémisphères et qui s'apelle la Thibaudie (thibaudia). Intendant pour la nouvelle colonie de Guyane en 1763, il est condamné en 1767 après le désastre de l'expédition de Kourou, et la menace d'un scandale politique alors que Louis XV vient de reprendre la main sur le Parlement (...). Mis au secret à la Bastille en février 1767, puis au Mont Saint Michel suite aux lettres patentes du 13 septembre 1767, il est réhabilité par Louis XVI'. www.fr.wikipedia.org

        Les Nymphes de la Seine, poëme.

      s.l., 1763. - Petit in-8. 29pp. Cartonnage moderne à la Bradel. Edition Originale du premier ouvrage du marquis de Luchet (1739-1792), âgé de 24 ans à sa parution. Ce petit poème libertin, apparemment inspiré de l'expérience personnelle de l'auteur, est consacré aux prostituées de Paris dont il évoque les maisons closes, prêtant à l'une d'elles, Julie, des propos désabusés sur sa condition. Le marquis de Luchet occupa entre autres, grâce à la protection de Voltaire, les fonctions de bibliothécaire de l'électeur de Hesse-Cassel. Larousse, indiquant à son sujet qu'il fit un mariage d'amour ne lui ayant rapporté aucune fortune, semble curieusement faire écho aux interrogations du poème sur les liens entre l'argent et l'amour. Bon exemplaire de cette pièce rare et peu connue. Aucun exemplaire décrit dans les collections américaines (cf. N.U.C.). Cioranescu, 41018. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Jerusalem Delivered

      London - R. and J. Dodsley et al., 1763. London - R. and J. Dodsley et al., 1763 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce copy of Torquato Tasso's best-known poem, La Gerusalemme Liberata, or Jerusalem Delivered, translated by John Hoole. This is the first edition of this well known translation, that would go through many reprints. In the poem, Tasso depicts a highly imaginative version of the combats between Christians and Muslims at the end of the First Crusade, during the siege of Jerusalem. The Gerusalemme Liberata occupies a larger space in the history of European literature, and is a more considerable work. Yet the commanding qualities of this epic poem, those which revealed Tasso's individuality, and which made it immediately pass into the rank of classics, beloved by the people no less than by persons of culture, are akin to the lyrical graces of Aminta. Monastic bookplates to front pastedown. Complete in two volumes. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally rubbed, marks to the boards and wear to the spines. Front joint of volume I failed, with front board detached; all other joints cracked. Internally, firmly bound. Institutional stamps to endpapers and title page. Library labels to front pastedowns. Ink inscriptions to front free-endpaper. Bookplate of Rev. B. Birchby to verso of front free-endpaper. Pages have some scattered spotting throughout. Overall: FAIR..
