        Underrättelser om barn-sjukdomar och deras bote-medel: tilförene styckewis utgifne uti de små almanachorna, nu samlade, tilökte och förbättrade.

      Sthlm, L. Salvius, 1764. 8:o. (2),363,(11) s. Samtida hårt nött skinnbd med upphöjda bind, delvis bortnött guldornerad rygg och ljusbrun titeletikett i glättad papp. Stänkta snitt.

Nästan utsuddade bläcknoteringar på främre pärmens insida.. Dintler 50. Bibliotheca Walleriana 8215. "Underrättelse om barn-sjukdomar", enligt Sten Lindroth "det mest inflytelserika arbete, som någonsin utgivits av en svensk läkare", publicerades först i form av små uppsatser i Vetenskapsakademiens almanackor 1753-71. 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 Bellin reproduced the map 70 years later, although it was an outdated depiction of the city.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).

        Collection of 138 arrests and memoires, of which 76 concern Louis Dominique Bourguignon, called Cartouche

      1676-1764. No Dust Jacket. Crime and Punishment during the Ancien Regime [Cartouche, Louis Dominique Bourguignon (1693-1721).] Collection of 76 official court records relating to the arrests, trials, sentences and executions of Cartouche and members of his criminal gang. Various places and publishers, 1721-22. With: 62 documents, including official arrest and sentencing records, relating to crimes committed in France in the 17th and 18th centuries. Various places and publishers, 1676, 1716 and 1727-64. 138 documents in total. Various sizes (mostly 4to). 247 x 177 mm. Bound together in one volume, 18th cent. mottled calf, gilt spine, leather label, light wear. Minor foxing, a few leaves repaired, but overall fine. Manuscript notations on a few leaves. Manuscript label reading "Ex libris C. T. Noel du Payrat" on front pastedown, referring either to French jurist Pierre Theodore No? du Payrat (1761-1832) or a member of his family; see below. An extraordinary collection of 17th and 18th century French legal documents and other papers on specific crimes committed in France during this period. Over half the documents relate to the arrests, trials and punishments of Louis Dominique Bourguignon, called Cartouche, and his notorious "Cours des Miracles" gang of criminals. One of France's most famous outlaws, Cartouche has been portrayed (and romanticized) in countless stories, plays, songs and films, including the 1962 film "Cartouche," starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Claudia Cardinale. His crimes and those of his followers are exhaustively detailed in this collection, which consists chiefly of documents issued by the Cour de Parlement de Paris, the ancien regime's primary legislative and judicial body. Cartouche was the son of a wine merchant. After expulsion from school, he became the head of a gang in Normandy, then served for a time as a police informant before joining the army. Upon leaving the army, Cartouche and some of his fellow soldiers formed a new criminal gang, headquartered in the Cours des Miracles, a notorious Parisian slum. The Cours des Miracles gang, which appears to have had over one hundred members (both male and female), was an early example of organized crime in France: Cartouche had himself elected leader, and punished challenges to his authority with death. Members of Cartouche's gang terrorized the city with almost daily robberies and murders; they were especially feared for their attacks on carriages traveling from Versailles to Paris. Betrayed by one of his accomplices, Cartouche was arrested on January 6, 1721 and thrown into prison. Believing that his gang would rescue him, he at first refused to divulge any information to the authorities, even when subjected to the question extraordinaire, a particularly brutal form of judicial torture. Cartouche was scheduled to be executed on November 27, 1721, and hoped for rescue up until the last minute; however, when he finally realized his gang had broken faith with him, he begged the officiating priest for a reprieve so that he, in turn, could betray his former associates. On November 28, after making his confession, Cartouche was broken on the wheel (rompu vif), the standard execution for robbers and brigands in 18th-century France. Document no. 6 in our collection, dated November 26, 1721, records the death sentence given to Cartouche and seven of his associates by the Cour de Parlement de Paris. After Cartouche's execution, most of the remaining Cours des Miracles gang members were arrested and tried for their crimes, which included murder, armed robbery, breaking and entering, stealing from churches and royal residences, receiving stolen goods, and harboring other criminals. These proceedings, which took place at the Cour de Parlement de Paris in the summer and fall of 1722, are recorded in documents 8-86 in our list (except for documents 12, 15, 62 & 85). The sentences included hanging, being burned alive, the wheel, branding, whipping, the stocks, banishment and the galleys. Of the remaining documents in this collection, the most interesting are a defense of the notorious Marquise de Brinvilliers (no. 1), executed in 1676 for poisoning her family; the arrest records of Robert-Francois Damiens (no. 130), drawn and quartered in 1757 for attempting to stab Louis XV, and of Damiens's family (no. 131), arrested and punished for their association with him; and a record of the judgment against the famous French smuggler and bandit Louis Mandrin (no. 122). The remaining documents record arrests and punishments for diverse crimes, including theft, pimping, infanticide, fraud, heresy, and refusing a dying person the last rites. This remarkable collection on crime may have been assembled by Pierre Theodore No?du Payrat, seigneur de Razat (1761-1832), jurist, King's counsel, acting procurer general of the Parlement of Paris, delegate from the Dordogne to the ?ats generaux in 1789, and member of the Council of Five Hundred. No?de Peyrat's descendants still maintain the Chateau de Razat and its important library of books on jurisprudence. A complete listing of the items in this collection can be on our website under the Rare Book tab.

        Considerations sur le gouvernement ancien et present de la France

      Rey Amsterdam: Rey, 1764. 1st edition. No Dust Jacket. Argenson, Marquis d'. Considerations sur le gouvernement ancien et present de la France. 8vo. xvi, 328pp. 200 x 120mm. Contemporary calf, rubbed. Front cover not attached (needs re-backing) otherwise good. FIRST EDITION. Argenson "is better known by his celebrated mot 'pas trop gouverner' (not too much government) - lineal ancestor in spirit of the laissez-faire, laissez-passer of Gournay. . . .His 'Considerations sur le gouvernement ancien et present de la France (published 1764, but written more than thirty years previously), in which he treats of democracy in a state governed by a monarch, deserves, however, to reprinted" (Palgrave). This work, which can be seen as a prelude to much of the economic writing of France, later in the century, was praised by Rousseau in the 'Contrat social', and has some points in common with Quesnay's writings.

        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
