Pulsifer (1802-1894) 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 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. 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.

Spine decorated in gilt with 5 raised bands. This is an older binding but is not original to the book as the endpapers are clearly more recent; we would guess this is a late 19th/early 20th century binding in the style of an 18th century binding. Covers mildly rubbed, Title page slightly browned, a few wormholes to the last couple pages of the index, else the interior clean and tight. Overall, the work is in very good condition. A collection of 500 engravings depicting the history of the world from the Biblical creation through the Second Coming of Christ. There are two engravings on each page. Each engraving measures approx. 6x5 inches and contains a caption with the appropriate Biblical verse. There is an index of the 172 illustrations in the New Testament section but none for the 328 of the Old Testament. The words "en Figures" are present on the half-title page but not on the title page.

Condition: Very good. "This, a most valuable record and chronicle of historical and political events for over a hundred years contains accurate accounts of the Revolutionary War, as well as the revolutions in South American, the Second War with Great Britain, and many other American subjects." ­- Sabin, 1614. Through the end of the 18th-century, "The Annual Register" became the most respected journal in print. The periodical was a reference work that contained major events from each year, focusing on economics, politics, arts, trends, and world developments. Many leading historians of the American Revolutionary period, including David Ramsay, James Murray, and William Gordon "borrowed heavily from the Annual Register" (Gephart 1016, 2565). This 1763 register covers major military events and interactions with Native American Indians. · Invasion of the Philippines, with descriptions of the islands and city of Manila · Expeditions to South America, Brazil.

(Bible, English)
Birmingham: John Baskerville, Printer to the University, 1763. The third variant of the Subscriber's list, with the most names, ending with that of the Hon. Charles York, Esq, Attorney General. [1146] pp. Folio. Baskerville's Masterpiece, in Staggemeier & Welcher Binding. The 1763 edition of Baskerville's Bible has always been recognised as his masterpiece and is one of the high-points in the history of printing in Britain. This beautiful and monumental binding can be closely dated because Thomas Powys, formerly MP for Northamptonshire, was created Baron Lilford in 1797, and Staggemeier & Welcher are recorded in partnership on Villiers Street as of 1799. By 1810, Welcher was in business alone at that address. The Hon and Rev. Frederic Powys, whose name appears on the spine, was the third son of the first Lord Lilford; he married in 1807. Whether the binding was commissioned for his taking holy orders or on the occasion of his marriage can only be conjectured. A landmark of printing, in a splendid binding. Nixon, p. 184; Gaskell, Bibliography of John Baskerville, 26; Ramsden p. 135. Provenance: Frederic Powys (his name tooled in gilt to spine, Lilford Library booklabel).

Giovanni RIZZI-ZANNONI (1736 - 1814).
Constantinople, February 30, 1763. Large 4°: manuscript in French language in brown ink on both sides of fine laid paper with a watermark (soft horizontal fold, margins slightly age-toned with small tears, some old water stains, affecting some words, otherwise in a good condition). A unique, previously unrecorded letter by the Italian cartographer and scientist Giovanni Rizzi-Zannoni with his measurements of the latitude of Istanbul, based on the suggestions personally received from a Dalmatian geographer Roger Boscovich during his stay in Istanbul to observe the Transit of Venus in 1761. - This unique, previously unrecorded letter was written by an Italian cartographer Giovanni Rizzi-Zannoni to a Venetian Ambassador, Piero Correr, in Istanbul on February 30, 1863, and includes his recent measurements of the latitude of Istanbul, based on the latest advice he received from his colleague, the geographer Roger Boscovich.According to the letter, Rizzi-Zannoni, who at the time lived in Istanbul, met Boscovich, when this Dalmatia-born scientist visited the city to observe the Transit of Venus at the behest of the Royal Society, in 1761. Boscovich arrived to the city too late for observations and spent most of his time in Istanbul ill. According to the letter, Boscovich suggested Rizzi-Zannoni to precisely measure the meridian of Constantinople, and the positions of the eclipses of Moons of Jupiter, the so-called Jovian method. Rizzi-Zannoni includes measurements of the eclipses, which he took on October 13, 1762, and quotes the newly measured latitude of Istanbul, which was with … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vol. II recased, with some damage to head cap and old restorations to spine and lower board, both end bands somewhat worn. Interior: Scattered minor stains and soiling. This is very likely the first book auction catalogue to include a separate chapter of Americana (see Vol. II, 363-368). 19,798 lots, PRICED. The fruits of seven decades of assiduous and selective collecting, particularly in medicine, the arts and sciences—more than 5800 lots in all branches of science, and a further 1500 in economics, logic and politics. So strong were the offerings of medical books the catalogue is considered de rigueur in the Special Collections at the world's major medical libraries: the Wellcome Trust, the New York Academy of Medicine, Harvard Countway, the National Library of Medicine, others. There are 3,672 lots of medical books which encompasses 202 pages (pp. 249-451). This was tantamount to a bibliography of pre-1763 medicine and is still valuable.

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..

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.
