Joanne Vincentio PATUZZI, VINCENTIO
first edition. Vellum full time, with smooth back piece as beige. Italian binding. Nice copy on 2 columns. Giovanne Patuzzi Vincenzo (1700-1769) was an Italian writer, this strange book is devoted to the geographical location and physical description of Hell. After reviewing several assumptions, in particular that of Swinden, the author gives his own. References to Gallileo, Copernicus are many, the book definitely looking for a more credible scientific. The first part of the volume is a refutation of the theory that Hell is located in the sun itself. The author, who believed his true location was underground, develops throughout the work of many scientific arguments relating to astronomy, with the calculation of the number of the damned can be contained in a sphere like the sun , volcanoes, etc.. Loss of Caillet and Dorbon. and the catalog of the BN as well as most major catalogies (British Library, Italian catalogs?).

Croghan, George
[N.p. [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 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.

(Bible. New Testament. Greek)
Oxonii [Oxford]: E Typographeo Clarendoniano, 1763. 8vo, pp. [iv], 676. Near-contemporary tree calf, spine elaborately gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, edges yellow. Some light toning and spotting. Expertly rebacked (by Bernard Middleton) with old backstrip laid down, hinges relined. An attractive copy. In 1758 Baskerville proposed the casting of a new set of Greek types to the Oxford University Press, and they ordered 2000 copies of this octavo New Testament (plus 500 in quarto) to be printed with the resulting type - which ended up being its only use. Negative critical reception may have contributed to its abandonment, but Baskerville's Greek face has recently been reassessed by Gerry Leonidas as an important predecessor of more modern types (if perhaps not quite as elegant as that used by the Foulis press) that had fallen afoul of an arbitrary typographic orthodoxy. Gaskell Add. 2; ESTC T94889; D&M 4756.

Ossian [James Macpherson] Melchiorre Cesarotti [trad. di]
appresso Giuseppe Comino, 1763. Edizione originale. Lievi abrasioni alle cerniere, sporadiche e leggerissime fioriture, nel complesso un ottimo esemplare, molto fresco e marginoso. Quando James Macpherson compose i «Canti», pubblicandoli in forma anonima e attribuendoli al leggendario Ossian figlio di Fingal, una sorta di Omero del Nord, il successo fu immediato: le atmosfere cupe e tenebrose, il mito della bontà delle origini, i valori guerrieri e gli amori infelici e appassionati incarnarono al meglio lo spirito preromantico del tempo. La diffusione dell'opera travalicò ben presto la Manica, e la prima traduzione, che qui si presenta, fu in italiano, per mano di Melchiorre Cesarotti: nonostante non fosse ancora perfettamente padrone della lingua, tanto da dover ricorrere all'aiuto del giovane Charles Sackville per intendere il contenuto del testo in profondità, il risultato fu eccellente: la traduzione, in endecasillabi sciolti, superò l'originale, e incontrò il plauso dei maggiori scrittori del tempo, da Alfieri a Foscolo, da Pindemonte a Monti, fino a Leopardi.

Light rubbing and soiling to boards, rubbing to extremities with wear to joints, edges and corners, spine abraded, bookplate of Guido Kisch to front pastedown, large copperplate vignette to title page. Moderate toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, some discoloration to margins of folding leaves, leaf of notes in Kisch's hand and a circular for a legal journal laid in. Early owner signature and fragment of label to front pastedown, two later signatures to head of title page, one Guido Kisch's dated 1952, interior otherwise clean. $1,500. * Second edition, revised, the final and best edition of this work.

[Sewall, Stephen]
Boston: Printed by R. and S. Draper, for the Honorable and Reverend the President and Fellows of Harvard-College, 1763. v,[1],83pp. Interleaved with several blank pages. Lacks the half title. 19th-century three-quarter green-dyed calf and marbled boards, spine neatly repaired, leather label replaced. Early 19th-century ownership inscription on front free endpaper; text heavily annotated by a student (see below). Tanning, scattered foxing. Very good. This copy bears the ownership signature of "David Pulsifer, 3d. 1830. Mar. 4." on the front free endpaper. Pulsifer (1802-94), a noted antiquarian, historian, and expert in chirography, was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts. He was known for his expertise in early handwriting, and played an important role in preserving and publishing colonial New England records. Pulsifer also studied Hebrew, as is shown by this heavily used this copy. It is interleaved throughout with blank pages, many with extensive notes, though the majority of his work seems to have been done on the text leaves themselves, which contain cross-outs, corrections, and writing. Stephen Sewall (1734-1804) was professor of Hebrew at Harvard and 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. 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.

Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate.

London: Printed for A. Millar; R. and J. Dodsley; W. Shropshire, 1763. Condition: Very Good binding. Fourth Edition of the Memoirs of Maximilian de Bethune, adapted by Pierre Mathurin, and translated by Charlotte Lennox, the author of The Female Quixote and close literary friend of Samuel Johnson.

All books signed and dated 1823 by Louisiana Hubard, with Edmund Wilcox Hubard's bookplate in most. The Hubard family of Virginia was a prosperous plantation family, Edmund in particular being elected to the House of Representatives three times and serving as a colonel and appraiser for the Confederate government, regulating the value of their dollar. Complete in six volumes. Two portrait plates; 25 x 26 cm folding map of France, with a 7 cm tear. Some dampstaining to the final three signatures of Volume I; usual toning and slight foxing to the textblock; minor loss to the extremities of the spines; beginnings of separation to the front joint of Volume III; creasing to the spine of Volume V; minor shelfwear to all.

Le Page du Pratz, Antoine
London: Printed for T. Becket and P.A. De Hondt, 1763. Two volumes. [4],l,vii,[1],368pp. plus folding map; [8],272pp. plus two folding map. Half titles. 12mo. Contemporary full calf, gilt ruled, leather spine labels, edges painted red. Front hinges cracked, boards rubbed, spines slightly chipped, light corner and edge wear. Light dampstaining to initial leaves of both volumes, occasional foxing throughout. About 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.

Sewall, Stephen]
Boston: Printed by R. and S. Draper, for the Honorable and Reverend the President and Fellows of Harvard-College, 1763. v,[1],83pp. Interleaved with several blank pages. Lacks the half title. 19th-century three-quarter green-dyed calf and marbled boards, spine neatly repaired, leather label replaced. Early 19th-century ownership inscription on front free endpaper; text heavily annotated by a student (see below). Tanning, scattered foxing. Very good. This copy bears the ownership signature of "David Pulsifer, 3d. 1830. Mar. 4." on the front free endpaper. Pulsifer (1802-94), a noted antiquarian, historian, and expert in chirography, was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts. He was known for his expertise in early handwriting, and played an important role in preserving and publishing colonial New England records. Pulsifer also studied Hebrew, as is shown by this heavily used this copy. It is interleaved throughout with blank pages, many with extensive notes, though the majority of his work seems to have been done on the text leaves themselves, which contain cross-outs, corrections, and writing. Stephen Sewall (1734-1804) was professor of Hebrew at Harvard and 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. 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-thr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plato
Printed by Robert and Andrew Foulis, Glasgow, 1763. First edition in English of one of the cornerstones of Western philosophy and politics. Quarto, period style full calf, red morocco spine label, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels. In near fine condition. An exceptional example of this landmark work. "That Plato should be the first of all the ancient philosophers to be translated and broadcast by the printing press was inevitable. Plato’s central conception of a universe of ideas, Perfect Types, of which material objects are imperfect forms, and his ethical code based on action according to human nature, developed by education, which represents the authority of the State, fitted in as well with the philosophical, religious and political thought of western Europe in the 15th century, striving to free itself from the shackles of scholasticism, as it did with those of the Byzantine Greeks, by whom Plato was repopularized in the western world The dialogues are pervaded by two dominant impulses: a love of truth and a passion for human improvement" (PMM 27). This translation by the Rev. Henry Spens is "very faithful containing not only a general epitome of the Republic of Plato, but an accurate delineation of the characters, manners, and philosophy of the ancient Greeks" (Lowndes, 1878).

Mais comme la punition ne donne point la certitude du crime, on prétend que l'accusation étoit injuste ; & dès-lors les ames sensibles sont affectées de différents mouvements que font naitre en elles la pitié, la terreur ou l'indignation, suivant la maniere dont l'esprit a envisagé cet objet ; & la nature des impressions que le coeur en a reçues. Le public n'est que trop informé du cas particulier qui s'est passé à Toulouse, & qui a donné à l'Europe entiere le spectacle le plus affligeant pour l'humanité. L'affaire est présentement soumise aux lumieres & à la décision du Conseil suprême : mais quel que soit le jugement qui sera prononcé, il ne pourra empêcher que dans une autre occasion, par un fatal enchainement de cirocnstances, la mort d'un homme trouvé pendu ne puisse être imputée à ceux que le hazard aura fait rencontrer dans les lieux où le délit se sera commis à leur insçu.

ADAM, Robert (1728-1792).
100 x 235 mm. (c.3¾ x 9¼ inches), lightly tipped to a ruled backing sheet. At this period Robert Adam was settled into his newly-established London practice, following his return from the extended tour of Italy from which he had gained much of his command of the classical style. His brother, John, who was to join him in the London practice did not return from his own tour of Italy until 1763. Oxford DNB describes this period thus: 'The opening years of the office, that is the period until James Adam returned from Rome in 1763 and became a partner in the practice, set a pace and style which lasted into the mid-1770s. The new, post-Roman style was reflected in the drawings of the period: here the rococo classicism, seen in the interiors of his work at Hatchlands, Surrey (1758-61), and Shardeloes, Buckinghamshire (1759-63), of the early 1760s, quickly gave way to a more complex and obviously antique manner as Adam's often imported draughtsmen watered down the style demanded by the brothers.'The present cheque is evidently made payable to the engraver, draughtsman and actor Edward Rooker (c.1712-1774), so celebrated for his architectural plates that he was termed by Horace Walpole as the 'Marc Antonio' of architecture. He contributed plates to Robert Adam's 'Ruins of the Palace of Diocletian and Spalatro' of 1764.Together with a further cheque made payable by William Adam (probably the youngest of the Adam brothers, 1738-1822) in favour of Jenny Adam for one hundred pounds on the account of Robert Adam, London, 6 February 1762, and a watercolour representation of the memorial t … [Click Below for Full Description]

POISSONNIER-DESPERRIERES, Gabriel Adrien Marie.
Quérard VII, , p. 246; for Simier: Flety, p. 162; Ramsden, p. 190. First and only edition of the autobiography of Gabriel Adrien Marie Poissonnier-Desperrières (1763-1852), splendidly bound for William I (177201843), Prince of Orange and the first King of the Netherlands, by René Simier (1772-1843), one of the best French binders of the 19th-century and binder to the King. "His variety and technique were superb; he had no superior and few rivals during his career" (Ramsden).Gabriel Adrien Marie Poissonnier-Desperrières was aide-de-champs of La Fayette in 1789, took part in the suppression of the revolt of the Swiss regiment at Nancy, and was present at Valmy. During the French Revolution he was sent to prison, but he was released after the 9. Thermidor. Pages 1-162 relate to this revolutionary period. Under Napoleon the author was twice put on non-active, in 1801 and in 1806. He retired from the army in 1811. After the "Restoration", Poissonnier-Desperrières rallied to the Bourbons and remained loyal during the "Hundred Days". So from page 209 onwards the memoirs deal mainly with the early days of the "Restoration", from about 1814 to 1816. A very good copy, only some occasional spots. The binding with very minor along the extremities, otherwise also very good.

"Scarce. An early comprehensive dictionary defining terms used in the 18th century study of oryctology, which by today's convention would include all of the earth sciences such as geology, mineralogy, crystallography, paleontology, and vulcanology. In the alphabetical list, various terms deal with earths, salts, sulfurs, bitumens, petroleum, simple and complex stones, common and precious gems, minerals, metals, petrifications of animals and plants, the latest theories on their formation, and their uses. In many instances a substantial definition is provided, which shows Bertrand's good knowledge of the subject."-Schuh, Mineralogy & Crystallography: A Biobibliography, 1469 to 1920, 523.

POISSONNIER-DESPERRIERES, Gabriel Adrien Marie.
, . . Quérard VII, p. 246; for Simier: Flety, p. 162; Ramsden, p. 190. First and only edition of the autobiography of Gabriel Adrien Marie Poissonnier-Desperrières (1763-1852), splendidly bound for William I (177201843), Prince of Orange and the first King of the Netherlands, by René Simier (1772-1843), one of the best French binders of the 19th-century and binder to the King. "His variety and technique were superb; he had no superior and few rivals during his career" (Ramsden).Gabriel Adrien Marie Poissonnier-Desperrières was aide-de-champs of La Fayette in 1789, took part in the suppression of the revolt of the Swiss regiment at Nancy, and was present at Valmy. During the French Revolution he was sent to prison, but he was released after the 9. Thermidor. Pages 1-162 relate to this revolutionary period. Under Napoleon the author was twice put on non-active, in 1801 and in 1806. He retired from the army in 1811. After the "Restoration", Poissonnier-Desperrières rallied to the Bourbons and remained loyal during the "Hundred Days". So from page 209 onwards the memoirs deal mainly with the early days of the "Restoration", from about 1814 to 1816. A very good copy, only some occasional spots. The binding with very minor along the extremities, otherwise also very good.
