        THE HISTORY OF THE COLONY OF MASSACHUSETS- BAY, FROM THE FIRST SETTLEMENT THEREOF IN 1628. UNTIL ITS INCORPORATION WITH THE COLONY OF PLYMOUTH, PROVINCE OF MAIN, &c. BY THE CHARTER OF KING WILLIAM AND QUEEN MARY IN 1691

      Boston: Thomas & John Fleet, 1764.. [4],iv,566pp. Contemporary calf, gilt leather label. Extremities worn, binding rubbed. Hinges cracking but still firm. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Light foxing and dampstaining. A very good copy. The first edition of this classic Massachusetts history, published in two separate volumes; the second volume was published in 1767, under the title THE HISTORY OF THE PROVINCE OF MASSACHUSETS-BAY. "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" - ANB. Hutchinson (1711-1780), besides being a colonial historian, was governor of Massachusetts from 1771 to 1773, and was a staunch Loyalist. He left Boston for London in late 1773, after he had helped cause the Boston Tea Party, and remained in Exile in England until his death in 1780. The first two volumes of Hutchinson's work on the Massachusetts colony are complete unto themselves; the third volume was published posthumously. This first volume is relatively scarce on the market.

The whole being calculated, as well for conveying a more accurate and extensive knowledge of the matters treated of to professed artists; as to initiate those, who are desirous to attempt these arts, into the method of preparing and using all the colours, and other substances employed in painting in oil, miniature, crayons, encaustic, enamel, varnish, distemper, and fresco; as also in gilding, &c. 2 volumes, second edition 1764, "with considerable additions and improvements", 8vo, 210 x 125 mm, 8¼ x 5 inches, Volume 1, pages xxvii, (9), 304, 321-522, plus 10 pages of index, (page numbers 305-320 were not used, nothing is missing, collated and guaranteed complete) Volume 2, pages, xiv, 14 pages not numbered of contents, 462 plus 10 pages of index, rebound in full modern calf, contrasting labels of maroon and green with gilt lettering and rules, raised bands with central gilt designs and rules, double gilt rules to edges of covers, new endpapers, edges of Vol 1, stained brown and the edges of Vol 2, stained yellow.

Among his friends he counted Dr Samuel Johnson. With the Handmaid to the Arts, first published in 1758, Dossie intended to give artists and artisans an understanding of the technical processes they were using. As a resource, it was well regarded by eighteenth and early nineteenth century artisans and it continues to be a standard reference for practical techniques of that era. The subjects treated in Volume I are listed in the title above with Part I being the largest section and includes mending and cleaning paintings and varnishing and preserving them. Volume II contains chapters on inks, cements, print-making of various kinds, working with glass and counterfeiting gems, porcelain including glazing, painting and gilding, glazing of stone or earthenware, papier mache plus an Appendix which covers marbling paper, weaving tapestry and manufacturing paper hangings etc. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        Delsboa illustrata, eller Delsbo socken i norra Helsingland, i sådan måtto ljusliga beskrefwen, at de förelagde fyra och fyratio frågor, dem framledne högwördige dom-probsten i Wäxiö, herr doctor Sven Bælter, då han år 1736 ännu war philosophiæ candidat, åstundade få swar uppå, här warda beswarade, såsom de äfwen samma året straxt beswarades.

      Sthlm, Nyström och Stolpes förlag, 1764. 8:o. (14),256,(2) s. & 1 utvikbar grav. karta & 1 utvikbar träsnittsplansch med kompletterande tryckt text. Med spridda illustrationer i texten. Samtida trevligt ngt nött hfrbd med upphöjda bind och infärgat svart titelfält. Stänkta snitt. Tre små maskhål i främre och bakre pärmen som även har ett litet maskangrepp. Svaga lagerfläckar här och var. Titelbladet lite solkigt. Litet maskhål från s. 251 till slutet och genom de båda planscherna med förlust av en runbokstav. Med J. Åhmans och M. Flincks namnteckning, Ulrik von Dübens och Gunnar Brusewitz exlibris, det förra klistrat över ett äldre exlibris. Ur Vegeholmsbiblioteket.. Warmholtz 655 och Forsbom Litteratur om Hälsingland s. 250-52. Med tryckt dedikation till Vetenskapsakademien, hyllningsdikt av Magnus Beronius och företal av Sven Bælter. Författarens arbete med denna sockenbeskrivning var färdigt i manuskript redan 1736, men utgivningen drog av okänd anledning ut på tiden. När utgivningen väl kommit till stånd fick boken ett syrligt mottagande. Inte minst gällde detta i Gjörwells "Swenske Mercurius", där signaturen Democritus stod för en häcklande genomgång av hela arbetet. Forsbom menar att personen bakom signaturen Democritus var J. H. Lidén, "som på detta sätt tog hämnd på Lenæus för dennes kritik av Rhyzelii Episcoposcopia". En försvarsskrift publicerades i samma tidning 1766 tillsammans med förnyad kritik av Democritus. Arbetet är inte desto mindre en grundlig genomgång av hela Delsbo socken med geografiska beskrivningar, mineralogi och bergsbruk, märkliga händelser i socknens historia, traditioner, dialektala uttryck, folkdräkter m.m. Knut Nilsson Lenæus var född i Lena socken i Uppland 1688, men blev kyrkoherde i Delsbo 1733 och stannade där till sin död 1776. Den stora planschen avbildar "Delsbo rune-häll". Vegeholm ägdes under 1700-talet av släkten Cedercrantz. Både Johan (död 1699) och sonen Isak Cedercrantz (död 1754) vinnlade sig om att bygga upp ett fint bibliotek. Under slutet av 1700-talet och början av 1800-talet ägdes Vegeholm av de tre ogifta syskonen Isak Johan, Charlotta Maria och Vilhelmina Ulrika. Den sistnämnda hade en fosterdotter, Gunilla Lindros, som 1797 gifte sig med tjänstemannen och dåvarande borgmästaren i Landskrona, Magnus Flinck. Han flyttade in på Vegeholm och tog till stor del över driften av gården. Under denna tid skänkte Vilhelmina Ulrika farfaderns och faderns bibliotek till Magnus Flinck som väsentligt ökade dess storlek. När både Vilhelmina Ulrika Cedercrantz och Magnus Flinck dog, 1814, såldes Vegeholm och änkan Gunilla Lindros flyttade med biblioteket till Rögle. Senare flyttades samlingen till Ängelholm för att 1868 köpas av Magnus Flincks, i sitt första äktenskap, barnbarn Carl Bernhard Ulrik von Düben. Biblioteket ställdes senare upp på von Dübens Södra Lindved, där det fanns kvar till dess huvuddelen såldes på Libris bokauktioner 1982-85

Detta är första upplagan i bokform. Lindroth skriver vidare: "Utan att bjuda på några märkliga nyheter ägde Rosensteins pediatriska handbok i fullständighet och moget omdöme ingen motsvarighet, och den anammades snabbt som klassisk utomlands; före århundradets slut var den översatt till åtta främmande språk"

        Ville de Manathe ou Nouvelle-Yorc

      Jacques Nicolas Bellin Paris: Jacques Nicolas Bellin, 1764. unbound. very good(+). Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 21 7/8" x 34 7/8". 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).

        Lectures on Quaternions: Containing a Systematic Statement of a New Mathematical Method.Dublin: Hodges & Smith, 1853. First edition.

      Presentation copy of "this important work [which] embodies the author's invention of quaternions, 'giving him the right to rank in originality and insight with Diophantus, Descartes, and La Grange' (R.E. Anderson [in Dictionary of National Biography])." (Sotheran I, 1764). Quaternions are a linear algebra of rotations in space of three dimensions, and were "the first non-commutative number system to be investigated in detail, and Hamilton's discovery that a consistent and useful system of algebra could be constructed without obedience to the commutative law of multiplication was comparable in importance to the invention of non-Euclidean geometry. Quaternions led to vector analysis, and were eventually superseded by the latter, which has become of the greatest importance in mathematical physics and was developed by G.F.B. Riemann and E.B. Christoffel into tensor analysis. This made possible the creation of the theory of relativity." (Printing and the Mind of Man). PMM 334; Norman 985; Honeyman 1601.. 8vo: 222 x 143 mm. Original plum blind-stamped cloth (faded, lightly worn). Provenance: Presentation inscription from the author on title: (recipients name cut away) "/ from the author./ Observatory, September 4th, 1862.". To Hamilton's title LL.D. he has added "Dub. and Camb.". Inscription to the half title: "To Captain Kidd / Complements of / The Askalon / Oct. 1862.". Pp. LXXII, 64, 736, (2:errata). Numerous text diagrams. Internally fine and clean throughout. In all a very fine copy of this "very scarce" (Sotheran, 1921) work

        Contes et Nouvelles en Vers. 2 Tomes.

      Amsterdam, 1764. 8vo. Two very nice cont. uniform red hcalfs; gilt backs w. gilt black leather title-labels. All edges uncut. Minor repairs to upper part of back of vol. one. In very good condition. Some of the text-leaves of the last section of the second volumes are evenly browned, and a few of the last leaves are professionally repaired, otherwise only occasional brownspotting to a few leaves. Nicely printed on good paper. Richly and beautifully illustrated w. the engr. portrait of La Fontaine, engr. frontisp. in both volumes, engr. title-vignettes, engr. preliminary vignette-leaves, 77 full-page engr. plates and 63 engr. text-vignettes. I.e. in all 80 engr. plates, 67 engr. vignettes and two woodcut vignettes (in the table of contents).. This rare and very beautiful Amsterdam edition is printed two years after the monumental first edition from Paris, which was commissioned by Ferniers Géneraux, and which is very scarce and sought after. This is the most beautiful and well-executed of the re-impressions (Paris, 1762 (-without vignettes), Amsterdam, 1764 and London, 1764). -"Celle d'Amsterdam, 1764, 2 vol. in-8. fig. copiées sur celles de l'édition de 1762, est assez belle..." (Brunet III:760). The illustrations of this edition are excellent and copied from the beautiful first edition; many of them are engraved and signed by C. Boily, and all are after Eisen. Most of the vignettes are after Choffard. The portrait of La Fontaine is engraved by Macret after Ficquet. "Cette imitation de l'édition des fermiers généraux est assez jolie. Le portrait de La Fontaine est tantôt gravé par Savaret, et tantôt par Macret, suivant les exemplaires." (Cohen, p. 310).The illustrations of this work are considered Eisen's main work, the book is considered one of the greatest works of rococo book-illustration, and it has greatly inspired later tradition in this field
