        Amusement Microscopique tant pour l'esprit, que pour les yeux; contenant cinquante estampes [deuxieme cinquantaine & troisieme cinquantaine] dessinees d'apres nature et enluminees, avec leurs explications.

      1764. Nuremberg, Adam Wolfgang Winterschmidt, 1764-1768. 3 volumes. 4to (265 x 215mm). With 1 fine handcoloured allegorical frontispiece and 150 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Later half vellum. The rare French edition of probably the most beautifully illustrated work on microscopical research. Martin Frobenius Ledermüller (1719-1769) settled down in Nuremberg in 1749, after having been wandering about for many years as a soldier and a secretary, and started his valuable microscopical observations under the protection and direction of the famous Dr. C.J. Trew. The publication of the results, with the finely engraved and coloured plates by the successful Adam Wolfgang Winterschmidt, met with close attention and interest, and for years to come the "Mikroskopieren" was a fashionable pastime for many of the well-to-do classes. The work describes and illustrates a wide range of objects: parts of plants and insects, small shells, plancton, the crystallization of salts in solution etc. The author was the first to use the term 'infusoria'. A fine uncut copy. Graesse IV, 139; Brunet III, 919: "Ouvrage tres estime"; Nissen BBI, 1156..

        Signed Manuscript Letter Reporting on Matters of Slavery, Insurrection, and Governance in the Dutch Colony of Berbice, now Part of Guyana, South America

      London: , 1764. London, 1764. ALS written by a prominent American plantation owner in the Dutch Colony of Berbice, to Dutch nobility, discloses paramount concerns regarding the leadership and economic progress of the slave-dependent colony. The author, slave trader and plantation owner Gedney Clarke (Jr.) who was also affiliated with the Dutch West India Company, addresses nobleman and politician Count de Bentinck of Holland, and mentions other key administrators of this and neighbouring Dutch plantation colonies. 8vo. 4 pages on two single-leafs, laid watermarked paper measuring approximately 7 x 9 inches. Very good, original condition document with significant content. The letter is contemporary to the Berbice Slave Uprising, a major event in Guyana's anti-colonial struggles, which began on 23 February 1763, and continued for almost a full year into 1764. On that February day, Plantation Magdalenenberg on the Canje River in Berbice experienced a rebellion by their slaves in protest of harsh and inhumane treatment. They torched the plantation house, then went to other plantations to mobilize other enslaved Africans to join the rebellion. Cuffy, a house slave at Lilienburg, another plantation on Canje, is said to have organized them into a military unit. As plantation after plantation fell to the slaves, the Dutch settlers fled northward and the rebels began to take over control of the region. For almost a year, the rebels held on to southern Berbice, while the whites were able to hold on to the north. Eventually only about half of the white population that had lived in the colony remained. Superb and early manuscript correspondence from Guayana 1764, written by an influential slave owner and trader of American descent, reveals the death of a Dutch colony's governor, suggests scandalous behaviours of others whom are named, presents allegedly sage and prudent advice for appointing new leaders encourages the involvement the Dutch West India Company, and boasts of a purchase of ninety female slaves. It further serves to illustrate the consanguinity of pioneer settlements abroad. A document of excellent content, dating to an era of slave uprisings and the dawn of an annexation of the Dutch colony by the British, key administrators and delegates, foremost settlers, planters and slavers, mentioned or described herein include the following: - Laurens Storm van's Gravesande (Governor of Guiana, Directeur-General of colonies Essequibo and Demerara, Administrator and Commander for the West India Company) - Honorable Laurens Lodewyk van Bercheyck (Land surveyor and Commander of Demerara) - Victor Amadeus Heyliger (first Marshal of the Demerara Colony, later Acting President of the colony and of the Court of Justice).. Signed.

        Lettre autographe signee ("Voltaire").

      Ferney, 22 septembre 1764.. ½ p. in 8vo. En 4to page une note indique: "de Voltaire | creancier du duc Charles d'Wurtemberg".. Lettre de creance pour le compte de S. A. S. le duc de Wurtemberg: "Je promets fournir a M. jean moire cent mille livres a son ordre soit en argent comptant soit en lettres de change [...] lesquelles avec cent mille livres que je luy ai deja donnees pour le compte de S. A. S. Mg le duc de virtemberg composeront la somme de deux mille livre dont son S. A. S. doit me constituer les rentes viageres dont nous sommes convenus [...]". - Charles-Eugene, duc de Wurtemberg et comte de Montbeliard, constamment endette, faisait des emprunts aupres de personnages complaisants. Voltaire, bon courtisan mais aussi philosophe et fort avise en affaires, lui fit un pret d'argent considerable. Charles-Eugene ne pouvant honorer ses dettes, faillit bien lui offrir le chateau de Montbeliard en compensation. Voltaire mourut en 1778 avant que le prince ne puisse eponger le reliquat de ses dettes. - Un peu tache et avec des dechirures aux marges et au pli.

Traduites du Grec & de l'Arabe sur des Manuscrits trouves a Constantinople; avec des notes interessantes, & une Histoire de la vie de ce Conquerant. (Histoire de Mehemet II, Empereur Ottoman, enrichie de Lettres traduites du Grec et de l'Arabe), I-II. [TWO VOLUMES].

      Paris, Duchesne, Panckoucke, Prault, 1764.. Two volumes. Small octavo. Pp. xii, 144; 155, (1). Both half-titles, with the title "Histoire de Mehemet II, Empereur Ottoman, enrichie de Lettres traduites du Grec et de l'Arabe" are present. Head- and tail-pieces, decorative initials; shoulder notes. Ownership signature to each title. Uniformly bound in contemporary plain paper wrappers, frayed, brown paper spines, one with remnants of old paper strengthening; dog eared, bit soiled in places. Still a charming, unsophisticated set, preserved in the original state. ~ First edition. Exceedingly scarce in the original state. A series of fictitious letters written by the orientalist Belin de Monterzi. Monterzi's book, his claims to historical veracity notwithstanding, was fiction disguised as history. It was an epistolary exchange between Byzantine princesses, the Sultan, and his officers. Hardened warriors though they were, in Monterzi's portraits they had a tender heart for the nobel Byzantine ladies, who did not resist their gallantries. One of them was Irene, the only surviving member of an illustrious Byzantine family. When Constantinople fell, some of its most highly prized spoils were its maidens, valued for their beauty and nobility. And so she was presented to the Sultan, who became deeply enamoured of her. In her tragic story there are themes of beauty, desire, and violence placed in an early oriental setting. (Buturovic, Women in the Ottoman Balkans: Gender, Culture and History).

        De Natuurlyke Historie der Insecten; Voorzien met naar 't Leven getekende en gekoleurde Plaaten.

      1764. Volgens eigen ondervinding beschreeven ... Met zeer nutte en fraaie Aanmerkingen verrykt, door C.F. Kleemann. Uit den echten Hoogduitschen Druk ... vertaald. Haarlem en Amsterdam, C.H. Bohn en H. de Wit, (1764-1768). 4 volumes (bound in 8). Large-4to (278 x 220mm). With 3 handcoloured engraved frontispieces, 1 engraved portrait of Rösel and 359 (3 folded) handcoloured engraved plates (printed on 288 leaves). Contemporary half calf, richly gilt ornamented spines, with red and green gilt lettered labels (skilful repair to top of spines). Nissen ZBI, 3467; Landwehr 161. A fine uncut uniformly bound copy of one of the most beautiful entomological publications. This Dutch edition is more attractive than the original German edition, which was published in Nuremberg from 1746-1792. The Dutch edition is printed on almost twice as large, much thicker, paper, and has far better colouring. The translation was made by C. Kleemann, the son-in-law of the author. He added new material and the excellent colouring of the plates is by him and his wife Katharina Barbara Roesel von Rosenhof. Kleemann also published a "Vervolg" with 26 plates, which was never finished and which is not present as almost always. "Roesel, who studied at first with his father and then with his uncle Wilhelm, an animal painter in Merseburg, later became a pupil of the famous Preisler in Nuremberg. After living in Copenhagen from 1726 to 1728 he returned to Nuremberg for good, and there, besides painting portraits and drawings, he applied himself in particular to the study of nature. He collected insects, their eggs and larvae, studied the process of hatching, pupation, and emergence, and painted all this in a most meticulous way, as Kleeman tells us. His manuscripts, with 406 illustrations, are now in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich. Roesel also made the engravings of his drawings ..." (Nissen, Bestiaries)..

Hume, qui residait a Paris, prevint Smith qui recommanda de se baser sur la seconde edition (1761) de son ouvrage. Finalement publiee en 1764 chez Briasson, l'un des principaux editeurs de l'Encyclopedie, l'oeuvre ne rencontra pas le succes public escompte et le livre fut diffuse confidentiellement.

FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Excellent contemporary crimson morocco, covers with gilt rule border, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with floral spray centerpiece and foliate cornerpieces, green morocco label, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Sabin 6885; Minuti, Rolando. "Oriental Despotism." European History Online (EGO), published by the Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG), Mainz 2012-05-03. URL: Joints and top of spine slightly rubbed (and carefully refurbished), occasional faint browning, half a dozen pages of text with rather light printing (but still entirely legible), one opening with offsetting from ribbon bookmark, but A VERY APPEALING COPY, the unsophisticated decorative binding bright and solid, with no serious wear, and the text fresh and clean throughout. This is a pretty copy of the first appearance in English of an Enlightenment-era examination of the roots of despotism, a work that denounces religion and theocracy as key elements in tyrannical rule. As stated on the title page and in the text, "this theologico-political [work] is calculated for an introduction and key to Montesquieu&#39;s &#39;Spirit of laws,&#39;" a treatise primarily concerned with the separation of powers. However, Boulanger and Montesquieu disagreed on a key point. Montesquieu saw religion, specifically Islam, as the potential ally of a despot, but he considered it an overall stabilizing force in society. Boulanger, on the other hand, saw little or no redeeming social value in religious institutions, and strongly emphasized the link between religion and despotism. As Rolando Minuti observed in "Oriental Despotism," "Boulanger did not define religion as socially useful but as the anthropological source of a fundamental mystification that creates power. Its political consequence, reinforced by superstition and idolatry, would then be despotism." Boulanger (1722-59) was a road and bridge engineer with a keen interest in philosophy, particularly in the area of politics and human rights. He wrote several articles on the rights of man for Diderot&#39;s "Encyclopedia," and several books critical of religion, all of which were published posthumously. The first edition of the present work, in French, appeared in Geneva in 1761; English politician John Wilkes (1725-97) privately printed another French edition in London in 1763, and is believed to have prepared this translation. While one can find copies of the 1764 English edition, they almost never show up in pleasing contemporary bindings, as here.

        Death of Konstantne Petmezas"

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, with modern colour, of the death of Constantine Petmezas from Peter von Hess&#39;s Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez ,and below, sails and naval instruments. Konstantinos Petimezas He was born in 1764 in Soudena near Kalavryta. He had a brother Anagnostis and was descended from the historic Petmezades family. He left after his father was assassinated in 1804 to Zakynthos and became a Russian army officer. He entered the Filiki Etaireia and took part of the Siege of Tripoli, Battle of Levidi, Battle of Nafplio, and the Siege of Patras. He took part in the national council of Astros. In the civil war, he teamed up with Theodoros Kolokotronis. He died in 1824 at Corinth Image bright and clean; light spotting to blank borders. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig&#39;s request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders. Not in Blackmer ,Droulia or Contominas. Philhellenic Konstantin Petimezas

Intéressant recueil réunissant quelques-uns des principaux ouvrages publiés autour de la rupture de Hume et de Rousseau. Ce dernier, poursuivi par la censure sur le continent, était venu s'installer en Angleterre à l'invitation du célèbre philosophe écossais mais la discorde n'avait pas tardé à naître entre les deux hommes. 1). Edition Originale, publiée en français par Suard d'après le manuscrit anglais de Hume. L'édition anglaise "retraduite" du français, parut quelques mois plus tard. Cet ouvrage de Hume contient la version du philosophe écossais sur sa brouille avec Rousseau. Excédé et blessé par la conduite de Rousseau, Hume laissa publier ce texte afin de mettre sous les yeux du public tous les éléments du dossier et résolut de ne plus répondre aux attaques de Rousseau. Ce volume contient les lettres de Rousseau à Hume, les réponses de celui-ci, les lettres de Rousseau à Clairault, au St. James Chronicle, au Général Conway, la Déclaration adressée par D'Alembert aux Editeurs, etc. 2). Edition Originale. Opuscule anonyme, signé de "T. Verax" qui commente l'ouvrage précédent en prenant la défense de Rousseau. Très rare. 3). Edition Originale. Cette critique mordante du philosophe de Genève fut écrite par Voltaire pendant le séjour en Angleterre de Rousseau, qui disait à son propos que "le noble objet de ce spirituel ouvrage est de m&#146;attirer le mépris et la haine de ceux chez qui je me suis réfugié". Bien que Voltaire ait toujours nié être l'auteur du pamphlet, ses contemporains furent unanimes à le lui attribuer, de même que les bibliographes. La deuxième lettre est due au littérateur lyonnais ami de Voltaire et adversaire de Rousseau, Charles Borde. 4). Edition Originale. Mémoire écrit en défense de Rousseau et contenant, avec une pagination séparée, une lettre anonyme en sa faveur écrite par Madame Marie-Anne La Tour de Franqueville (1730-1789). 5). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage apocryphe de Rousseau, composé en réalité par le littérateur toulousain Pierre-Firmin La Croix (1732-1786). Bon exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Leiden,: Theodor Haak,, 1764.. [viii], 338, [ii], [ii, blank] pp. 8vo (13 x 21,5 c.). Contemporary marbled calf, spine with 5 raised bands; in compartments gilt decorated with floral motives (top of front joint slightly damaged; marbled end-papers, red edges. With several woodcut headers, footers and initials. BMN. I, 200.First edition, very rare. A considerably expanded edition of author&#39;s thesis (Leiden, 1762). Rouppe travelled much in the West-Indies as a naval physician for the Dutch West Indische Companie. The text is based on author&#39;s own observations and experiences, including sanitation and sanitary measures, venereal diseases, fevers, cancers etc. An important part (pp. 90-212) deals with scurvy. One of the last parts, "de morbus in portubus" is of particularly interest. This work is often considered the best 18th century treatise on naval medicine, and was translated into English and German. -- (Owing to the quality of the paper, text lightly browned as in all copies. Copy with the bookplate of G.J.B. Ducos).

        Ville de Manathe ou Nouvelle-Yorc

      Jacques Nicolas Bellin, Paris 1764 - Fantastic early map of New York City. Details the fortress and city walls, streets and lots. A numbered key corresponds to notable buildings such as the governor's house and the armory. Based on a manuscript map by J.B.L. Franquelin of 1693, created during the French and Indian War. The focus on military function and details evokes the threat of attack by the French on the English, and is thought to have been reported by a spy (possibly John Reaux). Bellin reproduced the map 70 years later, although it was an outdated depiction of the city. Newer sources were simply unavailable. See Augustyn and Cohen, 50. Small chip to lower right, very light staining to margins. Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772), was the official hydrographer to the French king and the first person to hold the title of "Ingénieur de la Marine of the Depot des cartes et plans de la Marine" (chief engineer of the French Hydrographical Office). Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 21 7/8" x 34 7/8".
