XXXVI- 1f., 202pp. un tableau se dépl., & 1f. 75pp., & 1f. 59pp., pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné, bel exemplaire (ex-libris gravé XIXe Comte Regnault de Beaucaron) Edition originale ici dans le rare tirage de luxe in 4°, sur vélin fort. Témoignage d'importance sur la diplomatie secrète de Louis XV. L'espion Charles d'Eon de Beaumont fut en effet, un des membres du "secret du Roi". Il est resté célèbre pour ses travestissements. Il raconte dans ses Mémoires avoir été « lectrice » de la Tsarine sous le nom de Lia de Beaumont. D'ailleurs Louis XVI le contraindra à reprendre"les habits de son sexe" s'il désire revenir en France pour y obtenir une rente. Habillée par Rose Bertin aux frais de Marie-Antoinette, il est présenté à la Cour en robe à panier et corset le 23 novembre 1777. En 1785 il regagne Londres, pour y finir misérablement sa vie sous les habits féminins, à l'âge de 82 ans. Sous la Révolution il avait proposé, sans succès, à l'Assemblée Nationale de conduire une unité "d'Amazones". En 1810 l'examen du corps par le légiste révèlera des "organes mâles de la génération parfaitement formés sous tous les rapports". A partir des années 1950, des études se penchent sur le "problème psychosexuel" du chevalier-chevalière, un traité allant même jusqu'à examiner "l'éonisme ou l'inversion esthético-sexuelle". ¶ Quérard Fr. litt.

      Gebonden in één moderne halfleren band, (4)+195+203+(1) pag. In beide delen een slotvignet (in het tweede deel een zaaier met de tekst 'op hoope'). C1215."Buijnsters pag. 25-27 en 39-40; deze drukken niet in Buisman. Abraham Maggaris was een der brutaalste en fantasierijkste Nederlandse oplichters uit de 18de- eeuw, aldus Buijnsters. Hij werkte niet alleen onder de naam Cato Kamerling, maar o.a. ook als Jan Piro, Johannes Lambertus Koster en Albertus Haazelhoffi. Daniel Viergever was stadssecretaris van Brouwershaven en vertelt uitvoerig de geschiedenis van 'Doctor Kamerling' van Februari 1764 toen hij te Brouwershaven kwam tot zijn veroordeling in november 1765. Uit de meegedeelde documenten blijkt echter een groot deel van zijn vroegere geschiedenis. Het vonnis was niet alleen geseling en brandmerk, maar ook levenslange tuchthuisstraf. In 1792 was hij volgens het bijschrift op een portretprent 71 jaar oud en zat gevangen in het spinhuis te Middelburg. Het boek was een groot succes en beleefde diverse (roof-)drukken. Toch is het thans zeldzaam."

      Siebente verbesserte Aufl. - Augsburg, Elias Tobias Lotter, 1764, Kl.8, 3 Bl., 196 pp., 8 Bl.Register, 5 gefalt. Tab., 28 auf 26 Kupferstichtafeln, Ledereinband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung minimal fleckig. Frühe Ausgabe des bekanntesten Kompendiums der Anatomie des 18.Jahdts.Johann Adam Kulmus aus Breslau (1689-1745) studierte an verschiedenen europäischen Universitäten. Nach einer Studienreise durch Holland war er als Arzt in Danzig tätig. Durch holländische Seefahrer gelangte sein Werk auch nach Japan und wurde übersetzt und unter dem Titel "Kaitai shinsho" von R.Mayeno herausgegeben. Dieses Buch war der Grundstein westlicher Medizin in Japan. *Kulmus practised at Danzig and his Tabulae anatomicae were very popular and have been repeatedly reprinted and translated. The "Anatomische Tabellen" were even translated into Japanese, after a Japanese physician named MAYENO had satisfied himself by a dissection of a Japanese woman, Aocha-Baba, that they presented the true anatomical relations, and thus demonstrated that such anatomy as had been taught in Japan up to that time was absoltely false. cf. Hirsch-H. III, 632 Choulant-Frank p.34.

Being a curious dissertation thereon, and discovery of the disease that obstructs the growth and progress thereof. And an effectual remedy and cure therefor, by redressing and removing her grievances. . The city standing on a hill, set on a plain. An inland city immediately commence a maritime one, so as to join, and communicate, with the most navigable river in all Britain. The city beautified and adorned, for the more commodious entertainment of our patriot nobility and gentry, and inviting them to frequent their own metropolis, as before the incorporate Union. And all this done in a frugal, surprisingly cheap and far more easy wa

      Edinburgh 1764 - 8vo., 28 + (2)pp. and with the folding engraved plan (shaved at one edge just touching part of ruled border), title-page a little soiled, in old (19th century?) linen-backed boards, upper joint worn, nonetheless a good copy. Only edition. A now uncommon and rather charming essay proposing various economic and engineering solutions to the Edinburgh 'disease' - a dirty crowded city in dire need of expansion and economic revival. Mein bemoans the fact that the city had gained much less from the Act of Union than any other city in Britain or Ireland and that the several small Scottish towns were vibrant with trade and were thus putting Edinburgh to shame. 'That this disease has such effect upon this city, as incapacitates and dispirits her trading inhabitants is too evident to be denied, for if we look but a little about us, go but to Newcastle upon Tyne, or a little westward to Kendal, Whitehaven, Liverpool, Manchester, or such like in South Britain, to Dumfries, Glasgow, Aberdeen, or such like in North-Britain; yea, the petty town of Dalkeith our door-neighbour. From these places you will see carravans of carriers with pack horses, waggons, &c. with all sorts of merchandize sent from their shops and warehouses, to furnish the inland country market-towns, and gentlemen's houses, with goods and merchandize, their roads thronged with such carriages; but nothing like that from our merchants shops in Edinburgh .' [pp. 6-7]. Robert Mein had also published The city cleaned and country improven> (Edinburgh 1760). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Together with An Essay on the Universe: in four Books. Designed, to promote a familiar, pleasing, and religious Knowledge of the Earth and Heavenly Bodies, chiefly for the use of the Fair-Sex. To which is (now) added, by desire, Percy Lodge. A Poem. By the Rev. Moses Browne, Chaplain of Morden College, Blackheath, and Vicar of Olney, Bucks. The second Edition, carefully revised and improved.

      Printed for A. Millar., London 1764 - Second edition, first published in 1752 as Works and the Rest of the Creation. The country-house poem Percy Lodge, written for the countess of Hertford and separately published in 1755, is here added for the first time. In this copy an appreciative early reader has added three pages of antiquarian notes in manuscript at the end, concerning the history of the Percy family from the sixteenth century.'An early admirer of Chaucer, Spenser, and Milton, Moses Browne was a deservedly popular minor poet. Though he did not find his way into the standard collections, both Nathan Drake and Robert Southey acknowledged Browne's early contribution to romantic naturalism' (Oxford DNB). Browne had been given the living of Olney in 1753 and there raised some 13 children before taking up the chaplaincy of Morden College, Blackheath, in 1763. He retained Olney, in absentia, being served there by curate John Newton, famous for collaborating with Cowper on Olney Hymns (1779). 12mo (170 × 100 mm), pp. 286; interesting early annotations and corrections; contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt panelled spine, red morocco label; an attractive copy.

It was presented to Johann Franz Zach von Hartenstein, who came from a family that distinguished itself as postmasters in the service of the Holy Roman emperors. The charter states that he deserved nobility as result of the loyal service by his family, including his father who served the emperor in Tuscany and Frankfurt. The painted coat-of-arms embellishes several turrets and is depicted in a fantastical landscape. H188.

        Verbesserter Schleswig-Holsteinischer Schreib-Calender, Aufs Jahr Christi 1765.

      Gebruder Burmester, Altona 1764 - Near Miniature, 81 by 53 mm. Unpaginated, 42 leaves with content (including title), with six hand-colored plates, the first of which is double paged. Also five other plates -- putty colored lined, not black and white. There are copies, not many, of this annual to be found on OCLC, but none for this year, and we believe others do not have hand-colored plates. The plates are further enriched with tiny silver sparkles, easy to miss in leafing swiftly through the pages but sure to catch the eye with a glance that is more than cursory. We have seldom encountered such an arresting dressing to color plates, and never, in plates of this age. The colored plates depict hedonistic scenes and/or frivolity, perhaps a Teutonic corollary to the playful scenes captured by Boucher and Fragonard. The reddish printed plates, on the other hand, are mostly religious in their content. The textual content is not quite the standard almanac fare. In this almanac weather predictions are furnished for days far in the future to when it was written. As these predictions were for whole weeks, though, they had to have been discounted as somewhat meaningless at the time. An expository piece concerns the postal service of Hamburg, which was then, as now, the largest city of the region. The gilt decoration on the cover is very much in the Rococo style. The leather case, in partial contrast, is dominated by a irregular shapes that nonetheless read as geometric, with gilt floral flourishes serving as a more secondary decoration. The case has a film of soiling that dulls the colors and darkens its white background; it remains, nonetheless, an appealing, and structurally sound, house for the diminutive almanac. Minor loss of the cloth on the spine. There is a small closed tear at the fold of the double paged color plate. Cloth. Blindstamped and gilt impressed.

Goldsmiths 10030. Kress 6160. Sweet & Maxwell I, p.386(#2). This important work was not only, according to Beatrice and Sidney Webb, 'the first history of the Poor Laws', it was also a critical and comprehensive review of the pamphlet literature on the subject and was a vehicle for Burn's own ideas on the development of the Poor Laws and provision for the poor. It certainly contains the best summary of the pamphlet literature on the subject before Eden's State of the Poor> and is many times referred to by Sidney and Beatrice Webb in The Old Poor Law.> Richard Burn (1709-1785), was justice of the peace for the counties of Westmoreland and Cumberland. Burn was the author also of the classic work of legal authority, The justice of the peace and parish officer, upon a plan entirely new.> (1755). The History of the Poor Laws> contains Burns's well-known account of the Overseer. 'And this leads to the other great fundamental defect . in our present Poor Laws, and that is that the whole in a great measure (and indeed, in practice altogether) is left to the management of those annual officers called Overseers of the Poor . In practice the office of an Overseer of the Poor seems to be understood to be this . to maintain their Poor as cheap as they possibly can . to hang over them in terrorem> if they shall complain to the justices for want of maintenance . to pull down cottages; to drive out as many inhabitants, and admit as few as they possibly can . to depopulate the parish in order to lessen the Poor Rate.'
