        Autograph letter signed ("Voltaire").

      Ferney, 22. IX. 1764. - 8vo. ½ p. Note of debt for the count of S. A. S., duke of Wurttemberg: "I confirm that I will provide Mr Jean Moire with 100.000 livres either in silver or in security papers [ ]. Combined with another 100.000 livres which I have already given him for the count of S. A. S., duke of Wurttemberg, this payment constitutes the sum of 200.000 livres of which S.A.S. will pay me the life annuities that we have agreed upon [ ]" ("Je promets fournir à mr 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 aydeja données pour le compte de S. A. S. Mg le duc de virtemberg composeront la somme de deux cent mille livres dont S. A. S. doit me constituer les rentes viageres dont nous sommes convenus. [ ]"). - Charles-Eugène, duke of Wurttemberg and count of Montbéliard, notoriously in debt, had borrowed a considerable sum from Voltaire.

When Voltaire died in 1778, Charles-Eugène had notcleared his debts. - Slightly stained and with cracks at the edges and folds.

        Dictionnaire philosophique portatif par Mr. de Voltaire.

      Londres, 1764. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 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. .

L'ouvrage a connu une réédition génoise en 1779.

        Novena de la bienaventurada mi señora Sta. Anna, madre de nuestra señora, y abuela de nuestro redemtor [sic] Jesu-Christo.

      This novena was originally written in Portuguese and was apparently only translated by Fr. Ledesma; it had previously been printed in Mexico in 1764 by the heirs of Maria de Rivera. For this edition they commissioned => a full-page emblematic copper engraving of St. Anne, mother of the Virgin Mary, seated with her daughter on her lap; Mary wears a crown and holds a book (the scriptures) towards which Anne is gesturing, with the dove of the holy spirit above them, angels holding emblems of holiness at their sides, and a cat and a bird's nest (?) at their feet. Zapata did the engraving and signed it.We trace only four U.S. libraries reporting ownership, the JCB copy being reported as fire-damaged and lacking the last four leaves.

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."

Select Trials for Murder, Robbery, Burglary, Rapes, Sodomy, Coining, Forgery, Pyracy, And Other Offences and Misdemeanours, At the Sessions-House in the Old-Bailey. 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.

Nach einer Studienreise durch Holland war er als Arzt in Danzig tätig.

Dieses Buch war der Grundstein westlicher Medizin in Japan. - *Kulmus practised at Danzig and his Tabulae anatomicae were very popular and have been repeatedly reprinted and translated. The "Anatomische Tabellen" were even translated into Japanese, after a Japanese physician named MAYENO had satisfied himself by a dissection of a Japanese woman, Aocha-Baba, that they presented the true anatomical relations, and thus demonstrated that such anatomy as had been taught in Japan up to that time was absoltely false. cf.

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.

Ouvrage traduit de l'allemand en Anglois avec des Remarques par A. B. 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.

        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.>

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.

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.
