        Amusement Microscopique tant pour l'Esprit, que pour les Yeux...

      Finely engraved frontis. & 158 plates, all finely hand-colored. Four vols. in two. 4 p.l., 126, [4] pp.; 138, [2] pp.; 4 p.l., 118, [2], 23, [1] pp.; 16 pp. Large 4to, fine slightly later 18th-cent. citron morocco, sides with gilt border, flat spines finely decorated in gilt, green morocco lettering pieces on spines, dentelles gilt, a.e.g. Nuremberg: A.W. Winterschmidt, 1764-66-68-75. The finest copy I have seen in many years, finely bound in slightly citron morocco, of the first edition in French of this famous and beautifully illustrated microscopical work. Ledermüller (1719-69), a polymath, displayed a discerning interest in the art and science of natural history and especially in the newer science of microscopy, which made it possible to study the characteristics of a great variety of specimens. The fine engravings, made by Winterschmidt from the author's drawings and beautifully hand-colored, depict a wide range of objects under magnification including insects, plants, fungi, minerals, cochineal, mites, hydra, mollusks, etc. Several microscopes and apparatus are also illustrated. A very fine and handsome set. This set has the Traité phisique et microscopique de l'Asbeste (1775) which Brunet says "manque souvent." It rarely appears with the other three volumes. ❧ Brunet, III, 918-19. Clay & Court, The History of the Microscope, pp. 154, 182, & 183. .

        DISSERTATION SUR ELIE ET ENOCH.

      DIX HUITIEME SIECLE, s.l.n.d. (1764) - DISSERTATION SUR ELIE ET ENOCH. Par l'auteur (Mr. Boulanger) des Recherches sir l'origine du despotisme oriental et servant de suite à cet ouvrage. DIX HUITIEME SIECLE, s.l.n.d. (1764) 1 volume in-12 (16 x 10 cm) de XVI-284 pages. 1 tableau dépliant. Reliure de l'époque plein veau fauve marbré, dos à nerfs richement orné aux petits fers dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, tranches rouges. Bel exemplaire très frais. ÉDITION PARUE L’ANNÉE DE L'ORIGINALE. Le volume se compose des ouvrages : Dissertation sur Elie et Enoch, Esope fabuliste et Traité mathématiques sur le bonheur précédé d'une Lettre préliminaire du traducteur français. Ce dernier ouvrage serait d'Irenée Krantzovius, ouvrage traduit de l'allemand en anglais avec des remarques par A. B. et traduit de l'anglais en français. En réalité ce texte sur le bonheur réduit en axiomes serait de Benjamin Stillingfleet avec pour traducteur, Etienne de Silhouette (Catalogue Bnf). L'auteur des deux premiers textes est vraisemblablement Boulanger. Le Baron d'Holbach ayant édité le texte. La première édition est donnée en XIV pages préliminaires et 216 pages (avec une vignette à l'eau-forte sur la page de titre). Ce volume fait partie des traités propagés par le Baron d'Holbach et les matérialistes. Chaque page tend à démonter la chronologie biblique et à ridiculiser les dogmes de la religion chrétienne reléguée au rang de fable pour enfants. Le Traité mathématique sur le Bonheur essaye de rationaliser la notion de bonheur. "Les malheureux humains ont donc été trompés par ceux dont ils devoient être éclairés. Plaignons-les donc dans leurs égaremens ; et loin de les insulter pour un crime involontaire, que cette confiance même qu'ils ont eue aux artisans du mensonge, en les prenant pour les artisans de la vérité, nous fasse lire dans l'avenir ce que les hommes seront un jour, lorsque le progrès général des connoissances leur aura appris et démontré que tout ce qu'on leur a donné pour une succession continue et non interrompue de faits et de vérités, n'est qu'une succession continue et non interrompue de fables et d'impostures sacerdotales." (extrait de la Dissertation sur Elie et Enoch, conclusion). BEL EXEMPLAIRE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

To Which are Added, Genuine Accounts of the Lives, Exploits, Behaviour, Confessions, And Dying Speeches. Of the Most Notorious Convicts, From the Year 1741 to the Present Year, 1764, Inclusive; Which Completes the Trials from the Year 1720. London: Printed for J. Wilkie, 1764. 4 volumes. 12mo. (6" x 4"). Contemporary calf with later rebacking, gilt fillets to boards, lettering pieces and gilt-edged raised bands to spine, endpapers retained. Moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, light scuffing and some minor gatoring to boards, boards of Volume I just beginning to separate, but secure, a few joints and hinges starting. Some toning to text, light foxing in places, lower corner lacking from pp. 119-120 in Volume I with loss to catchword. pp. 217-165 of this volume have misprinted page numbers corrected in early pencil, interior otherwise clean. A nice set. * Indexed by crime, this set presents reports of trials held at the "Court of Oyer and Terminer and Gaol Delivery for London and Middlesex," better known as Old Bailey. Contents are arranged chronologically from 1740 to 1764. These accounts were published to amuse, titillate and perhaps instruct, and they are interesting today for their insights into the legal and cultural history of the early Georgian period. This title is the third and final set in a series of multi-volume trial collections, one published in 1734-35, another in 1742. Although these titles were issued by different publishers they have a uniform format and were later re-published as a five-volume work in 1764. English Short-Title Catalogue T82548.

"L'Iconologia di Cesare Ripa è il più completo repertorio di immagini allegoriche cui attinsero a piene mani generazioni di artisti e di poeti di tutta Europa.L’opera fu edita per la prima volta a Roma nel 1593, senza illustrazioni (Iconologia (1593)). Poi ripubblicata, sempre a Roma, nel 1603, con un ricco corredo di xilografie che, da sempre, furono considerate derivate in gran parte dai disegni di Giuseppe Cesari, detto il Cavalier d’Arpino, famoso pittore contemporaneo. Ampliata dall’autore, l’Iconologia fu più volte ristampata: a Padova, nel 1611 e nel 1618, a Siena, nel 1613, infine a Parma, nel 1620, in tre volumi. Seguirono numerosissime edizioni postume, mentre l’opera si diffondeva in Europa, ottenendo molto successo, con traduzioni in inglese, tedesco, francese e olandese.L'edizione più completa è la monumentale stesura in cinque volumi che ha come titolo: "Iconologia del Cavaliere Cesare Ripa Perugino Notabilmente Accresciuta d'Immagini, di Annotazioni, e di Fatti dall'Abate Cesare Orlandi. 5 vols.

        THE RIGHTS OF THE BRITISH COLONIES ASSERTED AND PROVED

      Boston: Printed and Sold by Edes and Gill, 1764. 80pp. Stitched as issued. Contemporary ownership inscriptions on titlepage and final page. Slight edge wear, dampstaining, closed marginal tear not affecting text to one leaf. Very good. Untrimmed. In a half morocco box. First edition of this seminal work by Otis, the mercurial Boston revolutionary whose eloquence inspired John Adams and legitimated the cause of Independence with this powerful early response to British taxation and the incendiary Sugar Act of 1764, published only months after its passage - the "first and most influential" proponent of colonial rights (Sabin), a most rare and desirable copy, in unsophisticated condition. As the American colonies reeled in protest to the Sugar Act of 1764, Boston patriot James Otis became the acknowledged leader "respecting the constitutional rights of the colonies....No man in America saw more clearly than did Otis" the looming consequence of Parliamentary taxation (Tyler, 39). The Harvard-educated Otis was a "member of the literary and intellectual circle of Boston....No one, said John Adams, was Otis' intellectual superior" (Wood, 200). He was "the shining example of the lawyer-scholar, learned yet powerful in argument" (McCullough 61), and Adams would later write that "'Otis was a flame of fire! - with...a prophetic glance of his eye into futurity." Chosen by the Massachusetts House in May 1764 to consider a response to the Sugar Act, in July "Otis published a pamphlet THE RIGHTS OF THE BRITISH COLONIES... bristling with references to Vattel, Harrington, Rousseau, Grotius, Puffendorf, Thucydides, Montesquieu, Coke and Viner, besides as least eight to Locke" (Knollenberg, 70, 183-4). Here Otis asserted the elemental positions that fueled and legitimated America's Revolution, arguing that "Parliament had no right to tax the colonists because they were unrepresented in it and therefore unable to give - or to withhold - their consent to levies on their property....Parliament, he argued, had the power to do what it wished but not the right." As such Otis was the first colonist to officially and fully voice "an important colonial contention about the British constitution. That the constitution did not simply consist of what Parliament legislated, but of some fundamental law...which protected the political and civil freedom of all subjects wherever they lived." In this he clearly set forth the premise "that some basic constitutional order existed which limited in equity if not in actuality the powers of all political agencies, including the sovereign body in the empire, the British Parliament" (Middlekauf 119-20). Otis' RIGHTS thus furnished "a starting point for the entire movement of revolutionary reasoning, by which some two millions of people were to justify themselves in the years to come, as they advanced along their rugged and stormy path toward Independence....It was a law-arsenal, from which other combatants drew some of their best weapons" (Tyler, 51-2). As the colonies' "first and most influential" proponent of colonial rights, this crucial work "was read in MS. to the Massachusetts House of Representatives and was published with their knowledge though not by their consent" (Sabin 57866), before it was then "forwarded to London" (Streeter). In addition Otis' RIGHTS reaffirmed his condemnation of slavery by stating that "The Colonists are by the law of nature free born, as indeed all men are, white or black" (29). Through this work and Otis' impressive skill as an orator, together with "other pamphlets, newspapers articles, and speeches in the Boston Town Meeting and Massachusetts General Court that circulated by word of mouth, Otis was perhaps the most influential advocate in Massachusetts, if not America, of the position that Britain had no right to tax or even legislate for unrepresented colonists and that unconstitutional law was no law at all." His eloquence made all the more tragic a mental collapse that emerged soon afterward. "The contradiction between liberty and sovereignty that tore apart the British Empire also destroyed the mind of James Otis. In addition he was divided between the conventional, patronage politics that enriched and advanced his family and the ideological struggle of an age of revolution. Otis, like Moses, was fated to glimpse the Promised Land but never enter into it" - ANB. The INSTRUCTIONS OF MAY 1764 within "were drawn by Samuel Adams" (Sabin). This copy bears several striking contemporary ownership inscriptions, showing descent through the Green family of Boston. At the head of the title it is inscribed by Joshua Green, Jr. (1764-1847), dated 1780, the year he started as an undergraduate at Harvard. A friend of John Quincy Adams and Harrison Gray Otis (James Otis' nephew), he would go on to become a prominent judge. The second inscription appears to be that of Edward Green, dated 1774, Joshua's uncle. The third inscription reads "Given me by the author July 26 1764" and is repeated beneath as "Given me by the author July 26 1769." We surmise that this is in the hand of Joshua Green (1731-1806), a Boston merchant who was a member of the Sons of Liberty with James Otis. This work was advertised in the BOSTON EVENING POST of July 23, 1764 - which means it would have been handed to the recipient virtually hot off the presses. A particularly appealing copy of this important work, in contemporary condition and with excellent provenance. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 4a. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 64-15a. STREETER SALE 735. HOWES O147. EVANS 9773. SABIN 57866. BAILYN, PAMPHLETS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION 7.

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], 1-304, 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] 1-462 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, ALL ZOOMABLE.

Et traduit de l'Anglois en François, avec une lettre préliminaire par le Traducteur François. p.159-216., la B.N.F. donne comme auteur Benjamin Stillingfleet et pour le traducteur, Etienne de Silhouette. Tout porte à croire que le rôle d'Holbach et de ses amis se limita à l'édition du texte, voire à son adaptation aux besoins du groupe. Comme d'autres ouvrages du genre, la Dissertation circula en manuscrit. La marquise Du Châtelet, décédée en 1749, en possédait un exemplaire dans ses papiers. Un tableau replié. Très bel exemplaire. Vercruysse, 1764/F3.

        The British Gardener's Director, chiefly adapted to the climate of the Northern Counties: directing the necessary works in the kitchen, fruit and pleasure gardens, and in the nursery, green-house, and stove.

      Edinburgh: printed for A. Kincaid and J. Bell, and R. Fleming. 1764. 8vo., two engraved plates* (one folding), (4) + 443 + (7)pp., contemporary calf, raised bands, gilt lines and label. A fine copy with the near-contemporary armorial bookplate of John Harrison.> First edition with this title although it is actually a re-presentation of The Scots gardiners director> of 1754 and therefore strictly a second edition. See Henrey 883 and Cleveland 470. James Justice (1698-1763), 'who claimed that no person in Scotland bestowed more liberally upon improvements in gardening than he did' (see Scots gardiners director> p. ix), was also a senior Scottish lawyer and, from 1727, Principal Clerk of Session. He validated the name change (from 'Scots' to 'British') in the title because the book was 'equally well-fitted for the northern counties of England, as for the country of Scotland'. But Henrey suggests that 'this must have been done in order to get a wider market for the book and thus increase its sales' [Henrey II p.466]. However that may be, the book is a mine of information (with an excellent index) about fruit and vegetable growing as well as about the culture of garden flowers. Justice twice visited Holland and gained experience there. He makes frequent references to the Dutch florists and their plant and seed catalogues. G.E. Fussell (More old English farming books 1731-1793,> p.65) cites Loudon's comment in the following century that Justice's book 'was an original and truly valuable work by a man passionately fond of gardening'. * Henrey notes that 'not all copies of the edition of 1764 contain plates'. Both are present in this copy, however, being, respectively: (1) Plan of the pine apple stove at Crighton anno 1732.> (2) Plan of the nursery bed for the crowns and suckers of the pine apples.>

        THE HANDMAID TO THE ARTS:

      London, J. Nourse, Bookseller in ordinary to his Majesty, 1764Teaching, I. A perfect knowledge of the MATERIA PICTORIA; or the nature, use, preparation, and composition, of all the various substances employed in PAINTING, as well vehicles, dryers, &c. as colours; including those peculiar to enamel and painting on glass. II. The means of delineation or the several DEVICES employed for the more easily and accurately making DESIGNS FROM NATURE, or DEPICTED REPRESENTATIONS; either by off - tracing, calking, reduction, or other means; with the methods of taking casts, or impressions, from figures, busts, medals, leaves, &c. III. The various manners of GILDING, SILVERING, and BRONZING, with the preparation of the genuine GOLD and SILVER powders, and imitations of them; as also of the fat oil, gold sizes, and other necessary compositions; - the art of JAPANNING as applicable not only to the former purposes, but to coaches, snuff - boxes, &c. in the manner lately introduced; and the method of STAINING DIFFERENT KINDS OF SUBSTANCES with all the several colours. 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], 1 - 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] 1 - 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. Bindings tight and firm a very good clean set. Robert Dossie (1717 - 1777) trained as an apothecary in Sheffield and studied chemistry, botany, physics and machine - making. In 1757 he settled in London where he made a reputation with his technical publications and became a member of the Society of Arts, serving on many of its committees and alternating the chairmanship with Dr. Benjamin Franklin. 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, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        A VIEW OF FORT GEORGE WITH THE CITY OF NEW YORK FROM THE SW.

      London: Printed for Carington Bowles, [after 1764]. - Copper plate engraving with hand-coloring, 13 x 18 3/4 inches. Several small tears, repaired, at lower edge, not affecting image. Very good. Framed to 17 1/4 x 23 inches. Not examined out of the frame. An early and engaging view of New York City. "One of the most sought-after prints of colonial New York is this attractive view, the earliest taken from the west. The Hudson River dominates the foreground, highlighted by a majestic British ship - its guns firing and its sails billowing - which dominates the right-hand side of the engraving. The buildings shown are numbered from one to eight, with Trinity Church the northernmost. Moving right from Trinity, we have the Lutheran Church, the New Dutch Church, the French Eglise du Saint Esprit, the City Hall, the Old Dutch Church on Garden Street, the Secretary's Office, and finally, the church in the fort. "The date depicted is clearly between 1724, when Trinity Church was extended to the eastward, and March 1741, when the church in the fort was destroyed by fire. These limiting dates can be further narrowed by considering that the New (later Middle) Dutch Church, finished in 1731, is shown completed, and that the original roof of Trinity Church is shown before it was raised in 1736 to conform to that of the east extension" - Deák. Bowles drew on the earlier engraving by John Carwitham, which he credits. A rare view, seldom found with original coloring. DEÁK, PICTURING AMERICA 84. STOKES, Vol. 1, pl. 31, pp.267-69.

        The history of the Poor Laws: with observations.

      London: printed by H. Woodfall and W. Strahan ..... for A. Millar. 1764. 8vo., (4) + 295 + (1)pp., contemporary calf with original gilt label. A fine copy. First, and only edition. Higgs 3291. 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.'

        A SPEECH, DELIVERED IN THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY OF THE PROVINCE OF PENNSYLVANIA, MAY 24th, 1764. BY...ONE OF THE MEMBERS FOR THE COUNTY OF PHILADELPHIA. ON OCCASION OF A PETITION, DRAWN UP BY ORDER, AND THEN UNDER CONSIDERATION, OF THE HOUSE; PRAYING HIS MAJESTY FOR A CHANGE OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THIS PROVINCE...

      Philadelphia: Printed and Sold by William Bradford..., 1764. Gathered signatures, string-tied as issued. Light tanning, most pronounced on titlepage and preface leaves. Very good. Untrimmed and unopened. In a blue half morocco and cloth box. First edition of this important speech by Dickinson, delivered at an early point in his career as a proponent of American liberties. This speech was occasioned by the controversy over the government of Pennsylvania, with Benjamin Franklin and Joseph Galloway arguing that the proprietary government of the colony should be replaced by Parliamentary action. Dickinson, already growing fearful of Parliamentary power, opposed the change, fearing the imposition of a royal government that could be even more pernicious to freedoms in the colony. "'Mr. Dickinson reasons like a man of extraordinary good sense, with the knowledge of an able politician, and the pleasing flow of an accomplished orator.' - M. REV...." - Sabin. "The 'Preface' is by William Smith, provost of the College of Philadelphia, according to a list of his writings in his own hand in the Brinton Papers in the Historical Society of Pennsylvania" - Adams. A second edition of Dickinson's speech was also printed by Bradford in 1764, and there seems to be some confusion over the pagination of the first edition. Our copy is the first edition (without "Second Edition" on the titlepage) and is in original untrimmed and unopened condition, with the text ending on page 30, with "finis" at the bottom of that page and a blank conjugate leaf following. However, some authorities (specifically Sabin and Howes, perhaps confusing this speech with Dickinson's reply to a speech of Joseph Galloway) contend that the first edition should have forty-five pages, which seems to us to be an error on their part.

        Dictionnaire philosophique portatif par Mr. de Voltaire.

      Londres 1764 - Early edition in the original 73-article format. According to Besterman, the London imprint is spurious, and this edition was published in Switzerland or Germany. Contemporary full leather binding with gilt spine and raised bands. Speckled edges; marbled endpapers. Moderate wear, scuffing and bumping to covers and edges; head and tail of spine are worn to endbands. Edges toned. Older armorial bookplate inside front cover; old owner's signature (apparently T. S. Gosset) and place (Trinity College Cambridge) to front flyleaf. Otherwise internally very clean, tight and unmarked. Binding and hinges firm & intact: a nice, sound, workable copy of this early edition. Head and tail pieces in text. The title-page attributes the work to Voltaire. Contains 73 articles in alphabetical order, and two tables of contents, the second, in-text one suggesting an original intention of publishing a longer two-volume set. Thus, a variant of the first edition. Small 8vo. 2[blank],viii,328+2[blank]pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Synodo diocesana, que celebró el ilustrissimo Senõr Doctor Don Manuel de Alday y Aspee, Obispo de Santiago de Chile ... en el iglesia catedral de dicha ciudad. Á que se dió princípio el dia quatro de enero de mil setecientos sesenta y tres años; y se publicó en veintidos de abril de dicho año.

      Lima: Oficina de la Calle de la Encarnación Folio (28 cm; 11"). [4] ff., 170 pp., [13] ff; [7 ff.], 168 pp.. 1764 Present here as issued are the first printing of the documents of the Chilean synod of 1763 and the second printing of documents of the 1688 synod; although the two parts were printed separately, at different presses, and lack a collective title, it is clear that they were issued together and constitute an integral set. The aforementioned documents deal with composing a catechism; administering the sacraments; licensing confessors; exemptions granted to blacks, Indians, and bi- and multi-racials; proper dress; administration of sodalities and confraternities; dancing and celebrations; games, gambling, and alcohol; attendance at and morality of bull fights; selling of married slaves; deportment of priests, nuns, and the laity; and many other social and religious matters, with long sections on Indians. Historians of medicine and health will find the sections on burial of interest. The typography of both synods is notably above the norm for Peru and especially Peru in the 1760s. The type is good and not worn, well composed, placed in borders, employs woodcut initials and tailpieces, and enjoys notable title-page composition. The title-page of the 1763 synod is printed in black and red with a very handsome black and red border of printer's flowers, while that of the 1688 synod is deservedly famous for being the first book printed in the New World in three colors — black, red, and green. But => this copy, like that at the John Carter Brown Library, has had its green elements overlain with gold foil producing a title-page in black, red, and => gold. While we've had other copies of this work, this is the first we've seen outside of the JCB that has been illuminated. The second title-page reads "Synodo diocesana, con la carta pastoral convocatoria para ella: y otra en orden a la paga de los diezmos. Celebróla el ilvstrissimo y reverendissimo señor doctor maestro, don fray Bernardo Carrasco y Saavedra, obispo de Santiago de Chile ... en la iglesia catedral de dicha ciudad. A que se dio principio domingo diez y ocho de enero de mil seiscientos y ochenta y ocho años; y se publicò en dos de mayo de dicho año. Reimpresa en Lima, En la Imprenta real, Año de 1764." Provenance: 1849 gift inscription of Jose Barros Pazos of Santiago, Chile, to his cousin Jose Vitaliano Molina, a priest. 19th-century quarter dark leather with black paper sides, all edges saffron; spine and binding with some rubbing. Textblock with some waterstaining and concomitant later discoloration; some foxing, a few quires or leaves browned. => Overall a good copy of a special copy.
