        A Collection of four defences made by Spanish military and naval officers of their conduct during the siege of Havana and its capture by the British in 1762

      [1764] 1764 - [Madrid] In 1762 the British government decided to act against the Spanish who had entered on the side of the French in the Seven Years War, and sent a large naval and military force - ships of the line, transports, over ten thousand troops, including a detachment of American troops - to Cuba under the command of Admiral Sir George Pocock and the inexperienced Earl of Albemarle (land forces). The aim was to attack Havana and capture it. The city was protected by two strong forts, one of which, El Morro, commanded the harbour. Attempts to reduce it by fire from naval guns proved ineffective but it was eventually mined, and on 30 July 1762, the breach was stormed. The attack was then turned on the city which surrendered on 13 August. The loss of Havana was a huge shock to Spain and to Spanish imperial prestige. Havana was in fact returned to the Spanish after only a short period of British rule, but the cost was the loss of Florida and essentially all real power in the Caribbean. Shipped back to Spain on British ships were Field-Marshal Prado, the admiral Marqués del Reale Transporte, the Viceroy of Peru, don José Antonio Manso de Velasco y Sánchez de Samaniego, Field Marshal Diego Tabares, who had been governor of Cartagena in the Indies, and more than nine hundred others, including military, naval and civilian officials, who were put on trial under a Council of War of which the president was the conde de Aranda, the prosecution brought for the Crown by a Fiscal. The documents here offered print the charges (in italic) which are quite short, followed by the much longer satisfacciones. Details are given of the fortifications and military organisation of the Spanish, together with, as has been mentioned above, quite precise accounts of individual engagements and skirmishes. They are therefore an important source for this episode in colonial & Caribbean history The British library has four items connected with this affair. One (RB. 23.b.3769) is the Satisfaccion of Colonel Alexandro Arroyo de Royas, and the volume with pressmark 1324.i.9 contains three items, only one of which is also offered here (nos.37-39 in the volume) : the Satisfacciones of Field Marshal Juan de Prado (104pp.; with the same border as used in the Carlos Caro item offered here), of the Marqués de Real Transporte (ff. 74), dated at the end 30 April 1764, and of José Antonio Manso de Velasco, Conde de Superunda. The Bodleian also has a copy of that of the Real Transporte item. CARO, Carlos, Colonel. Manifiesto dela verdad en vindicacion del honor del coronel D. Carlos Caro, y demostracion de su acreditada buena conducta, en el campo de la Habana, con la tropa de dragones del regimiento de Edimburg, e demas que le estuvo agregada durante el sitio de aquella plaza. Contra la sindicacion de continuada inaccion ofensiva de que se ha sido accusado por el señor Fiscal de la junta de generales formada en virtud de real orden de 23 de febrero de [1]763 para el examen de lo acaecido en en sitio, y rendicion de dicha plaza. [Madrid 1764] [2], 134pp. Palau 44812 Caro sailed for Havana in November 1761 and arrived in Cuba in February 1762. His dragoons arrived at Havana in May 1762 and encountered the English on June 6. The document is full of very precise military details, numbers of men, horses, types of arms, use of peasant forces etc. There are a number of references to military writers : Folard's commentary on Polybius, Onosander, Vizconde del Puerto's Reflexiones militares, and others. The latest date is that of 21 October 1763 on p. 114 [HEVIA Y BUSTAMENTE, Gutierre Guido de], Marqueés del Real Transporte. Defensa y satisfaccion que por lade su obligacion, y honor proprio exponde el marques. sobre la conducta que tuvieron en la defensa, capitulacion, pérdida y rendicion de la plaza de Habana, y esquadra que se hallaba en su puerto loes gefes, y officiales comprehendidos en ella, y en la Junta de Guerra [etc.] [Madrid, 1764] ff. 74 Palau 251847 This work also contains

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

      Thomas and John Fleet. Hardcover. Boston, 1764-1767. 8vo, contemporary calf, 566 + 539 pp. With bookplates of Gordon Abbott. 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. Evans 9705 and 10685, Howes H-853. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. . Good. 1764. First Edition.

Simple Full Calf, Five Bands, Red Morocco Spine Label, Gilt Figures Repeated In Each Spine Panel. 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." [Corpus Christi College, Oxford]; Keble Was A Founder Of The Oxford Movement In The Church, And Keble College At Oxford Is Named After Him.

This Example With Light Rubbing, No Tears Or Chipping Or Fraying, Front Joint Cracking But Quite Solid, Hinges Tight, Contents Immaculate, Some Remaining Polished Shine To Edges Of Page Block.

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.

Aunque se estaba comentando a sí mismo, estaba siendo objetivo porque, frente a obras atractivas para el común como las de Fontanelle (La pluralidad de los mundos habitados) o Pluche (El espectáculo de la naturaleza), o demasiado intrincadas (como la de su maestro Le Monnier), La Lande cumplió con lo que avisaba: "J'omettrai sans regret tout ce qui est trop métaphysique & trop abstrait, ou trop algébrique, sans avoir une relation immédiate ou au progrés de l'Astronomie, ou aux besoins de la vie; je donnerai au contraire une étendue particuliere aux objets qui s'y rapportent le plus, tels que la mesure du temps & la maniera d'observer. Mon plus grand soin a été de rendre mes explications faciles à entendre." Ese deseo de comunicar con precisión y sencillez se debe seguramente a que consiguió ser astrónomo por convicción: al plantearse cursar estudios había intentado hacerse jesuita para poder dedicarse a la Astronomía, pero sus padres se opusieron haciéndole perseguir una carrera en el Derecho, en la que llegó a ejercer la profesión de abogado. La Lande, sin embargo, simultaneó aquellos estudios con la asistencia a Joseph-Nicolas Delisle en sus observaciones astronómicas (había instalado su observatorio en el mismo edificio en el que se alojaba La Lande), y la asitencia al curso de Astronomía q [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Group of About 20 British Acts of Parliament Relating to America

      London: Mark Baskett; Charles Eyre and William Strahan, 1764-1782 Pamphlet format, small folio, disbound. Five acts lacking separate titles, but complete, appears to be two extra tittle pages, a few tears and corner folds, one act with margin tear, not affecting text, minor some soiling; otherwise very good. This is an interesting collection of Parliamentary Acts relating to America during the reign of George III. While most of the acts are from the colonial period, there is also some Revolutionary War material. There are several acts concerning the importation of rice from South Carolina and Georgia, and others that relate to importation of wheat, beaver skins and tea into the colonies. Others address the quartering of troops in the colonies, as well as, better pay for soldiers, and dealing with mutiny and desertion. Additionally, several acts refer to a continuation of the right of the king to secure and detain people charged with or suspected of "high treason", and for the exchange of American prisoners brought to Great Britain.

        Plan de la Nouvelle Orleans. Sur les Manuscrits du Dépôt des Cartes de la Marine

      Early map of the original settlement of New Orleans, first issued in Xavier Charlevoix's Histoire et description generale de la Nouvelle France and originally engraved by Dheulland, depicting the earliest known plan of New Orleans, oriented to the east with the Mississippi River depicted along the bottom edge, covering an area including modern-day Decatur Street, Chartres Street, Royal Street, Bourbon Street, and Dauphine Street, from modern-day Iberville Street over to Ursulines Avenue, with a key naming eighteen important landmarks of the time including the parish church, prison, guard house, convent, hospital, and negro's quarters. Some minor scattered foxing, toning. Sheet size approx. 9-7/8 x 15-1/4 inches. Loose. Paris, n.d. (circa 1764). Bellin was one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century, spanning the gap between 18th and early-19th century styles. During his long career at the Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine, he created hundreds of high quality nautical charts of locations around the world. His work focused on function and accuracy, tending less towards the decorative than many of his contemporaries.

        Der Schwätzer und der Leichtgläubige eine Pantomime [Latin text in a parallel column, beginning] Susurro cum nimis Credulo ludus pantomimicus

      Augsburg & Vienna, Kaiserlich-Privilegierte Franziskische Reichsakademie Freier Künste und Wissenschaften, 1764 (27 Horning [February]). A suite of twelve prints illustrating scenes in the pantomime "Der Schwätzer der Leichtgläubige", a carnival entertainment performed in the small auditorium (Aula minor) of Salzburg University, on 27 February 1764. The pantomime was enacted during an intermission of the tragedy "Pietas in patriam" and is dedicated by its author, Florian Reichssiegel, to Prince-Archbishop Siegmund Christoph von Schrattenbach. The principal characters are the clowns Harlequin, Hanswurst, and Pierrot; a synopsis of the action (in Latin and German) appears beneath each print. The scenes were drawn by the Salzburg stage designer Matthias Siller (1710-1790) for the Augsburg printmakers Philip Andreas Degmair (1711-1783) and Johann Philip Haid (1730-1806). The title and prints 2, 8, [10] are mezzotints; prints 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12 are line engravings.

Reduced from 295 × 418 mm (sheet) The scenes were drawn by the Salzburg stage designer Matthias Siller (1710-1790) for the Augsburg printmakers Philip Andreas Degmair (1711-1783) and Johann Philip Haid (1730-1806), the latter producing mezzotints. Most prints bear the legend 'Prospects thea­trales pour servir aux camères obscures et autres machines optiques', for which reason Artur Kutcher believed they do not record actual scenery, but 'Lichtbilddekorationen', images projected with the help of a camera obscura onto a curtain. His supposition is not endorsed by other authorities. 1 Florian Reichssiegel (1735-1793) entered the Benedictine abbey of St. Peter in Salzburg in 1754, became secretary to Abbot Beda in 1759, and in 1766 was appointed professor of poetry of its university and later 'comicus'. 2 Reichssiegel also wrote the pantomime 'Der Traum' (carnival 1767-1768) and the 'interludium' 'Die Hochzeit auf der Alm', both set to music by Johann Michael Haydn, 3 as well as 'Finalkömodien', plays written to celebrate the close of the school year at Salzburg University.
