DUCLOS (Charles Pinot-)
A Constantinople [Paris], 1763. 2 ouvrages (le premier en deux parties) en 1 vol. in-12, veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné de fleurons dorés, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, roulette dorée en pied représentant une scène de chasse à courre, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches rouges. Reliure de l'époque, réparations grossières à deux coins, néanmoins, agréable exemplaire. (3) ff., 175 pp.; (2) ff., 136 pp.; (2) ff., 211 pp. Déchirure marginale à un feuillet sans manque. Edition originale des Confessions du Comte de ***, célèbre roman libertin de Duclos, qui est probablement pour une part, autobiographique : comme l'auteur, le narrateur et héros du récit est l'un de ces hommes à la mode aux innombrables conquêtes féminines, un ancien débauché reconverti à la littérature. "Aussi bien cette confession d'un roué n'est-elle pour Duclos que l'occasion de saisir et de peindre sur le vif, en même temps que de noter des souvenirs très vraisemblablement personnels, une douzaine de types de femmes du monde où il fréquentait". Ce roman qui devait avoir encore plus de piquant pour les lecteurs de l'époque qui, sans doute, devinaient qui se cachait derrière les personnages décrits par Duclos, se lit encore avec plaisir. Gay-Lemonnyer I, 660; Cioranescu, 25931; Barbier I, 682; Pia, Dictionnaire, 111; Henriot, Livres du second rayon, pp. 170-176. Edition originale des Deux Cousines, curieux roman libertin qui raconte comment deux femmes de harem qui devinrent toutes deux amoureuses d'un jeune français, le suivirent l'une après l'autre à Paris.

PLUCHE, Noel Antoine
London : Printed for R. Francklin, C. Hitch, J. Rivington, L. Davis and C. Reymers, J. Buckland, H. Woodfall, S. Crowder and Co. and T. Longman, M, DCC, LXVI. [1763]. - 1763 Navigation Optics Inventions Sundial Compass Telescope Windmill Engineering Noël-Antoine Pluche was an early 18th-century French priest and historian who is most remembered today for his land mark work of natural history, ‘Spectacle of Nature’. While this work would have significant influence on botanists and naturalists, Pluche designed the work to be for the general population, not of scientific merit. There was a time when Pluche himself called it ‘La physique des enfants’ or ‘physics of the children’. The main themes portrayed in this work are not simply of the physical, natural world. Take for instance the first volume – Pluche writes, “We are here only to be virtuous” – a moral vision on how we are to live. ‘Spectacle’ became a pragmatic work of theology through the lens of plants, animals, and the natural world. This volume from the complete set of ‘Spectacle’ includes many fascinating topics, but primarily focuses on optics and mechanics. This tome discusses instruments used in navigation and features folding illustrations of the inventions that made navigating much easier – such as the compass, ring-dial, protractor, and sundial. Pluche details the origins and developments in astronomical inventions such as the telescope, as well as advances in the water and wind mill.

Paris, Vincent, 1763. 2 Bll., CCCXXV, 189 S.; 1 Bl., 24 S., 2 Bll., 640 S. 1 gefalt. Kupfertafel. Erste Ausgabe. - Hunt 577. Pritzel 21. Stafleu/C. 26. DSB I, 58: "In this book he [d. i. Michel Adanson] proclaimed his contempt for `systems` and proposed a natural classification based upon all characters rather than upon a few arbitrarily selected ones, an attempt that brought him into conflict with Linnaeus.". - "Adansons Interessen verlagerten sich mehr und mehr auf Fragen des Systematik im Allgemeinen. So zog er in seinen 1763 erschienen `Familles des plantes` aus der Überlegung, dass jede menschliche Geselllschaft je nach den Erfahrungen, denen sie in ihrer jeweiligen Umwelt ausgesetzt ist, ihren besonderen Beitrag zum Wissen liefern kann, zwei Schlussfolgerungen: Zum einen seien bei der Klassifikation der Pflanzen nicht nur bestimmte, sondern alle Merkmale zu berücksichtigen. Zum anderen sei die Einführung neuer Pflanzennamen abzulehnen und stattdessen seinen sämtliche bereits existierenden Pflanzennamen zu sammeln. Mit beiden Schlussfolgerungen geriet Adanson in Opposition zu c. v. Linne, so dass den `Familles des plantes` die erhoffte Rezeption versagt blieb, auch wenn das Konzept der `natürlichen Familie` fortleben sollte". (Lexikon der bedeutenden Naturwissenschaftler.

BRUCE, James.
2 pages (30.6 x 21.5 cm) on a bifolium, Algiers, 1 June 1763, to an unknown recipient, docketed on verso of integral blank "Algiers 1 June 1763 Consul Bruce"; a bit faded, some short fold separations. The great traveller and explorer of the Nile at the very beginning of his career abroad. In 1763 Bruce was appointed the British Consul at Algiers, charged with studying the antiquities and ruins of the country as well as maintaining diplomatic relations. In fact, Bruce's consular duties left almost no time for exploration, which he took up in earnest after he was relieved of his consular position in 1765. The present letter is likely one of the first reports that Bruce sent back to Great Britain. It explains his preparations for resisting the assaults of Barbary Pirates on British property. "There has been for these several days reports here that the Emperor of Morocco was putting out some Chebeques [war ships, usually mounted with 24 guns] to cruze upon the English And from Gibraltar it has been wrote that orders are come to bring all British subjects from the Moorish dominions & that a frigate has been stationed of Sallé Bar.

(AUCTION CATALOGUE: FALCONET)
1 p.l., v-xliv, 543 pp.; 1 p.l., [3]-829 pp. Two vols. 8vo, cont. sheep (corners worn, head of spine of Vol. II a bit chipped), spines gilt, red morocco lettering pieces on spines, a.e.g. Paris: Barrois, 1763. The sale catalogue of one of the most important and largest of all private book collections, especially strong in medicine and natural history; Peignot states (p. 97) "ce catalogue est un des plus considérables qui existent." Falconet (1671-1762), French court physician, was a book collector for more than seventy years and this catalogue contains 19,798 lots (the library comprised about 60,000 books; many of the lots are bundles) of which over 6000 lots are of medical, natural historical, or scientific interest. Falconet came from a long line of physicians and he himself was consulted during the last illness of Louis XIV, and became "médecin consultant" to Louis XV. The catalogue is preceded by a biographical sketch of the collector (including a list of his publications) and bibliographical notes. At the end of Vol. II is a most useful author index of 698 columns. Falconet presented to the Bibliothèque du Roi (today's Bibliothèque Nationale) some 11,000 volumes not contained in that library, but reserved their use for his lifetime. They are indicated in the catalogue by brackets (an absolutely unique feature in an auction catalogue). This was one of the largest donations ever made to the B.N. Clearly, Falconet's gratitude for his appointment as court physician prompted his bequest, one of the largest on record, to the Royal Library. Diderot felt that the … [Click Below for Full Description]
