        Los quatro misticos rios del paraiso de la iglesia, quatro hermanos santos, Leandro, Fulgencio, Isidoro, y Florentina, honra de Cartagena, gloria de España, y esmalte de la Fè Catholica. Breve compendio de sus vidas, y virtudes, coronado con una devota novena, para incentivo de la devocion Christiana. Por el R. P. Fr. Antonio Herraiz, Predicador Conventual del Convento de N.P.S. Francisco de la Villa de Iniesta, de la Santa Provincia de Cartagena. Quien lo dedica al Exc.mo S.r Don Carlos Reggio, y Gravina, Theniente General de la Real Armada.

      En Valencia: por Benito Monfort [.] . 1764 - First edition. 4to., pp. [28] 192 + (facing p. 1) fold-out engraving of the four saints with panorama of Cartagena, and (facing p. 59) woodcut and letterpress family tree. A very good copy bound in contemporary vellum boards, title inked to spine, edges mottled blue (loss of vellum along bottom of upper cover). Stamp to f.f.e.p. of Real Convento de Religiosas Ursulinas, Molina de Aragon; front pastedown with MS shelfmark label. Scholarly work on the history of the city of Cartagena, it contains the lives of four early saints - three brothers and a sister, including the bishop and encyclopedist Isidore of Seville, and his sister the abbess Florentina (d.612) - and an illustrated genealogy of their family. It has some guide-book elements: there is (10-11) a description of the ?House of the Four Saints?, erected by the bishop Sancho Dàvila Toledo (1546-1625) in the episcopal palace, and the iconography of its chapel; and (12-13) of the miracle-giving statue of the Virgin Mary the Virgen del Rosell, and its placement in a chapel of the cathedral, again alongside images of the Four Saints. At end is (165-175) a novena to the Saints, and (176-184) hymns to these. A life of Florentina (80-98) describes in particular her rule of the female monastery of St. Benedict in Écija, southern Spain. A brutal story is given (98) of how later, when the Arabs came to take the city ([711]), the nuns implored their saint for help in avoiding rape. This led them to cut up their own faces; thus bloodied they met their attackers, who killed them immediately. A later reader left a place-holder at this page. A fold-out engraving of the sibling saints has at bottom a panoramic view, taken from the sea, of Cartagena, an important naval city. Details include fortifications and ships, and the print carries a dedication to the people of the Spanish royal fleet. Appropriately, the book?s dedicatee is Carlos Reggio y Gravina (1717-1773), Teniente General of the Armada. CCPB000062531-0. Palau 113943. Aguilar Piñal IV 3043. OCLC (07/16) shows copies outside Spain at British Library and Chicago. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

I: xxxii, 323, [5]pp., with half-title, engraved frontispiece by Gravelot, 16 folding engraved plates at rear; vol.

I slightly chipped otherwise a very nice set indeed. Fournier's pioneering study of typefounding and punchcutting, illustrated with engraved plates of the tools used for those processes and the most important book on French eighteenth-century typography. It is a spirited masterpiece of technical writing, intended to explain to the layman the intricacies and nuances of the typographical art. The second volume is really a type specimen book, illustrating samples of approximately one hundred ancient and modern alphabets. It is also one of the most exquisite examples of French rococo book production, making use of Fournier's own printing types and ornaments. Updike's opinion of Founrnier's work is unequivocal "The Manuel Typographique is a work which no student of French typography can afford to be without." Provenance: From the typographical library of John Lewis with his bookplate. Bigmore & Wyman I, p. 228; Audin, 55 & 56; Updike I, p. 260.

        Détail et explication des cérémonies qui seront observées à l'Abbaye de Sainte Genevieve, Jeudi prochain 6 Septembre 1764, jour auquel le Roi viendra y poser la première Pierre de la nouvelle Eglise.

      [Paris] : Chez F.G. Deschamps, Libraire, Rue Saint Jacques, aux Associés 1764 - In-4° broché sous couverture d''attente de l'époque, exemplaire tel que paru en condition exemplaire, (cf la deuxième photographie de la couverture dans le scan) 1 pages. L'abbaye Sainte-Geneviève de Paris est une ancienne abbaye parisienne, dont plusieurs bâtiments ont été conservés pour constituer l'actuel lycée Henri-IV. Située à proximité de l'église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont et du Panthéon, ses bâtiments et jardins s'étendaient entre la rue de l'Estrapade, la place du Panthéon et la place Sainte-Geneviève. Elle fut fondée en 502 par Clovis et son épouse Clotilde sur le mons Lucotitius où se trouvait déjà un cimetière, sous le nom de monastère des Saints-Apôtres (car dédié aux apôtres Pierre et Paul) où ils furent inhumés tous les deux. Selon la tradition, Sainte Geneviève avait l'habitude d'y venir prier et empruntait pour cela un chemin devenu par la suite la rue de la Montagne-Sainte-Geneviève. À sa mort en 512, sa dépouille fut enterrée dans l'église abbatiale aux côtés de Clovis et rejointe plus tard par la reine Clotilde. Probablement conçue selon un plan basilical, cette église mérovingienne possédait, selon le témoignage de Grégoire de Tours et des Vies de sainte Geneviève, un sacrarium (lieu de sépulture de Clovis et de Clotilde) qui était selon toute vraisemblance une annexe de l'édifice. Ravagée par les invasions vikings en 857, elle ne fut reconstruite qu'au début du xiie siècle par Étienne de Tournai. Elle appartenait alors à l'ordre de Cluny. Cette ancienne abbatiale tomba en ruines au fil des siècles et ce qui restait fut démoli de 1801 à 1807 pour percer la rue Clovis. De l'église initiale, il ne subsiste plus que le clocher, connu actuellement sous le nom de « tour Clovis », située dans l'enceinte du lycée Henri-IV, lui-même constitué par les anciens bâtiments conventuels de l'abbaye, datant des xiiie et xviie siècles. Le 24 juin 1667, le cercueil en cuivre de Descartes y fut déposé sous un monument de marbre. Comme siège de la congrégation de France (ou « association ») des abbayes augustiniennes dites des génovéfains, l'abbaye eut une grande influence en Europe à partir du xviie siècle. La fédération des abbayes augustiniennes initiée par le cardinal de la Rochefoucauld, abbé commendataire de l'abbaye, avait pour but d'introduire dans les abbayes augustiniennes les réformes demandées par le concile de Trente. Avant la Révolution française, un projet de reconstruction avait été commencé : une nouvelle abbatiale monumentale fut construite sur une crypte. Cette église, due à l'architecte Jacques-Germain Soufflot, est aujourd'hui connue sous le nom de Panthéon de Paris. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Dialogues on the Uses of Foreign Travel.

      London: Printed by W.B. for A. Millar and W. Thurlbourn and J. Woodyer,, 1764. Considered as a part of an English gentleman's education: between Lord Shaftesbury and Mr. Locke. By the editor of moral and political dialogues. Octavo (194 x 115 mm). Contemporary calf, red label to spine lettered in gilt with gilt ornaments to compartments, red edges. Title page in red and black. Bookplate of Henry Tomkinson to pastedown with his contemporary ownership inscription on title page, Selbourne library stamp on reverse of title page. Some light foxing, else an excellent copy. First edition, with a Dublin and a second edition following the same year. An imaginary dialogue on the subject of whether a foreign or a domestic education is best for forming the character of a gentleman, with Lord Shaftesbury giving the case for foreign, John Locke domestic, education. The literary style of both is emulated, and their respective views on education are aptly given. The author, the Bishop of Worcester Richard Hurd (1720–1808), had already had success with a previous imaginary dialogue, his 1759 work Moral and Political Dialogues.

        Eloge du Tabac en Poudre - Broadside Poem on snuff, Tobacco UNRECORDED

      Paris, chez le veuve, Daudet et Joubert,, Paris 1764 - Eloge du Tabac en Poudre_________Paris, chez le veuve, Daudet et Joubert,__( No date but between 1764 & 1773.)___________________ Single engraved sheet Folio. 38.5 x 25.4 cm. French text. Vignette of a couple seated at a table, the gentleman offering the lady an open snuff box in his right hand and, presumably, a copy of this poem in his left. The text is surrounded by a flowering vine (perhaps meant to represent the Tobacco plant ?) in which are entangled several pipes.___________ The text extols the virtues of snuff as a cure for low spirits and as a general all round tonic. The poet goes on to say (loosely) that "although people accuse the French of having adopted odious habits ,the reader should realise that throughout the world Snuff satisfies many diverse tastes and if Spain and England find snuff to be such a sweet attraction, how can so many people be wrong ?" Thin strip of top edge soiled and slightly chipped , some staining and printing ink residue, two wormholes to blank margins with small loss of paper. A very good copy with all text clear and legible, printed on strong, heavy paper.______________________ I can find no other copy of this broadside in any online library. However, a search of the Catalogue Collectif de France locates a 17th century manuscript at the Bibliotheque de Bordeaux with the same first line : Non, je ne sçaurois m'y résoudre, which is possibly the source of this text. A rare survival. £275

Il taglio spiccatamente antigiusnaturalista si snoda intorno a dottissime dissertazioni sopra le opere di Hobbes, Pufendorf, Thomasius, Wolf, Selden, Grozio e Barbeyrac. Un vero e proprio capolavoro nell"ambito della dottrina settecentesca italiana sopra diritto naturale e diritto delle genti. Rara edizione originale. Cfr. Sapori, 1222..

        Ruins of the Diocletian Palace at Spalatro in Dalmatia

      Printed for the author, [London] 1764 - (20 7/8 x 14 3/8 inches). iv, [8], 33pp. Engraved additional title, 61 engraved plates on 53 sheets (8 double-page, 6 folding), engraved by Bartolozzi, Zucchi, Patton, Santini and others, mostly after original drawings by Charles-Louis Clérisseau. List of subscriber's. Contemporary mottled calf, covers with gilt cornerpieces, spine with raised bands in eight compartments, lettered in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers (expert restoration at corners and top and tail of spine) First edition of Adam's famous work on the ancient Roman architecture of Spalatro: a cornerstone of 18th-century neo-classicism. Following a six-week visit to Spalatro, Adam published this book with its elaborately engraved views of the late Roman palace, intending it to emulate the success of Robert Wood's The Ruins of Palmyra published in 1763. In Florence, Adam had met the architect Charles-Louis Clerisseau (1721-1820), who served as Adam's instructor for two years and who supervised much of the engraving for the book in Venice (51 plates) and London (11 plates). While Adam acted as leader of the expedition and contributed architectural observations (as well as gathering subscribers for publication), the preface was written by his cousin, the Scottish historian William Robertson. The engravings were based on drawings by Clerisseau (six of which are preserved in the Hermitage Museum), and were said by the Critical Review in October 1764 to possess "a taste and execution that has never been equalled in this country." Indeed, when Adam returned to Britain in 1758, "the custom's officer at Harwich had so admired the drawings that he had charged no duty" (Millard, p.5). It has been said that the publication of this work launched the Adam style. Millard II, 1; Berlin Kat. 1893; Brunet I, 46; Cicognara 3567; BAL/RIBA 27; Fowler 2; Harrison pp. 76-81.

The Book Was First Published In 1762, Issued In A Second Edition In 1763 (In The Uk In Xix,196 Pp And In Ireland In Xii, 156 Pp.), A Third Edition In 1764 (In Xi, 135, 1 Pp], This "New" (Fourth) Edition Published Later In 1764, And Then A Fifth Edition In 1765 In Xii, 150 Pp. This "New Edition" Is Apparently The (Unstated) Fourth Edition. This Example With The Ownership Signature Of John Keble (1792-1866), As "J. Keble / C. C. C. Oxon."

Robert Lowth (27 November 1710 ¿ 3 November 1787) Was An Oxford Professor Of Poetry, Later Bishop Of Oxford, Bishop Of London, And Declined The Position Of Archbishop Of Canterbury Due To His Health. Lowth Seems To Have Been The First Modern Bible Scholar To Have Noticed Or Drawn Attention To The Poetic Structure Of The Psalms And Much Of The Prophetic Literature Of The Old Testament. Much Commentary On The Psalms Since Derives Either Consciously Or Implicitly, Directly Or Indirectly To Some Extent From His Lectures. Lowth Is Also Remembered For His Publication In 1762 Of A Short Introduction To English Grammar. Lowth's Dogmatic Assertions Appealed To Those Who Wished For Certainty And Authority In Their Language. Lowth's Grammar Was Not Written For Children; However, Within A Decade After It Appeared, Versions Of It Adapted For The Use Of Schools Had Appeared, And Lowth's Stylistic Opinions Acquired The Force Of Law In The Schoolroom. The Textbook Remained In Standard Usage Throughout Educational Institutions Until The Early 20Th Century. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The History of Colony of Massachusetts-Bay. Volumes I-II.

Ownership markings of Jonathan Sayward Barrell, merchant in York, Maine, as well as James Lloyd of Massachusetts, who signed the front free endpaper of first volume in 1765. A quite good set with very good contents, complete. Front board of of first volume detached, rear board of first volume nearly detached, one signature clipped from margin in Volume II, lacking front free endpaper in second volume. Remains quite good, complete, with bright contents. Genealogical notes of the Lloyd family on rear endpapers of first volume. "Hutchinson did not seek his role as an ally of the Crown. Rather, he was a vigorous and conventional defender of Massachusetts interests. He opposed, for example, the impressment of Massachusetts inhabitants by British naval vessels. In 1742 he confronted Captain William Scott on the deck of H.M.S. Astraea and demanded the release of one seaman and the hostage wife of a man Scott was attempting to impress. Hutchinson persuaded Shirley to intervene in their behalf. In 1747 Speaker Hutchinson mediated between a violent anti-impressment mob and the provincial government; the Massachusetts House approved such a strong anti-impressment resolution that the mob dispersed. Hutchinson's History of Massachusetts-Bay accurately recounted these events and contained sympathetic accounts of Puritanism; the Antinomian heresy of Hutchinson's ancestor, Anne Hutchinson; and Massachusetts opposition in the 1680s to the "tyrannical disposition" of the royalist governor, Sir Edmund Andros, and his administration's "harpies." Hutchinson's History acknowledged the multiplicity of jostling interest groups in Massachusetts and the duty of government to protect the public interest from the demands of self-interested groups like the advocates of an inflated money supply he had battled in the 1740s. Though Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) got credit for the Albany Plan of colonial union in 1754, Hutchinson played an equally important role in drafting the document." - ANB.

Robert Lowth (27 November 1710 - 3 November 1787) Was An Oxford Professor Of Poetry, Later Bishop Of Oxford, Bishop Of London, And Declined The Position Of Archbishop Of Canterbury Due To His Health. Lowth Seems To Have Been The First Modern Bible Scholar To Have Noticed Or Drawn Attention To The Poetic Structure Of The Psalms And Much Of The Prophetic Literature Of The Old Testament. Much Commentary On The Psalms Since Derives Either Consciously Or Implicitly, Directly Or Indirectly To Some Extent From His Lectures. Lowth Is Also Remembered For His Publication In 1762 Of A Short Introduction To English Grammar. Lowth's Dogmatic Assertions Appealed To Those Who Wished For Certainty And Authority In Their Language. Lowth's Grammar Was Not Written For Children; However, Within A Decade After It Appeared, Versions Of It Adapted For The Use Of Schools Had Appeared, And Lowth's Stylistic Opinions Acquired The Force Of Law In The Schoolroom. The Textbook Remained In Standard Usage Throughout Educational Institutions Until The Early 20Th Century.

        The History of Kamtschatka, and the Kurilski Islands, with the countries adjacent; illustrated with maps and cuts. Published at Petersbourg in the Russian language . and translated into English by James Grieve, M.D.

      printed by R. Raikes for T. Jefferys Glocester 1764 - 4to. (25.8 x 21.6 cm). Title, [6], 280, [8] pp., with 2 folding maps, 5 engraved plates (3 folding), old illegible stamp to title; 1 folding map bound upside down with short tear repaired, marginal repair to title and first page. Modern dark green morocco gilt. First edition of an abridged English translation of one of the earliest printed narratives about Alaska and the Aleutian Islands, and the first scientific account of Kamchatka. The translator was James Grieve (d. 1773), a Scottish physician employed in Russian service. Originally published in Russian in 1755, the work features a detailed discussion of the natural history, manners, customs and religion of the Kamchatkans: "The Russian Krasheninnikov started out across Siberia with Gerhard Friedrich Mueller and Johann Georg Gmelin, and then made his own way to Kamchatka. When Georg Wilhelm Steller arrived in Kamchatka to supervise his work, Krasheninnikov left in order to avoid becoming Steller's assistant, and returned to St. Petersburg. Krasheninnikov nonetheless was able to make use of Steller's notes in the preparation of his own narrative, and the inclusion of Steller's observations on America, made during his travels with Bering's second voyage, are an important part of this work, and constitute one of the earliest accounts of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. Steller's account was not published until 1793. This is the first scientific account of those regions" (Hill).

Divided into 73 chapters explaining chemical components, quantities and application of gunpowder, the use of artillery, the testing of cannon balls, repair of gun-carriages, instruments necessary to load ordnance, methods of taking aim, the proportions of bronze ordnance, the loading of mortars, the gauging of bombs etc. The first plate with 8 numbered illustrations of field cannon positions gives the name of the engraver as ‘Joseph Vazquez’, dated Lima, 1764. The following two plates represent sectional views of mortars. In his dedicatory preface to Lieutenant General Don Manuel de Amat y Junyent (1707-82), Viceroy of Peru and governor of Chile, the author explains that his ‘brief treatise on pyrotechnics’ is intended as a precise and easy instruction manual for the improvement of the Lima garrison artillery corps. The viceroy lavishly rebuilt Lima including the fortress of San Felipe.
