        ACTS OF ASSEMBLY, PASSED IN THE ISLAND OF ANTIGUA, FROM 1725 TO 1760. VOL. II. WITH A COMPLETE INDEX TO BOTH VOLUMES

      London: William Richardson and Samuel Clark, 1764. Folio. Half calf and marbled boards in antique style, leather label. Quite clean internally, very good. The laws of Antigua from 1725 to 1760, printed as a later continuation of the ACTS OF ASSEMBLY, PASSED IN THE CHARIBBEE LEEWARD ISLANDS..., published in 1734. This volume contains an index to the Leeward Islands laws, as well as to those laws printed here. Antigua, colonized by the British in the mid-17th century, served as a major sugar producer and hub for shipping in the West Indies. The laws include (among others) several acts passed concerning the military presence on the island, an act freeing two slaves, an act regulating the execution of slaves, and an act encouraging the importation of white servants. The American Revolutionary War caused a significant disruption in the sugar trade, and British sentiment against slavery further served to shift the economy of the island in the late 18th century. Only two copies in ESTC, at Harvard Law and the John Carter Brown Library. ESTC N503980.

        Neues Organon oder Gedanken über die Erforschung und Bezeichnung des Wahren und dessen Unterscheidung vom Irrthum und Schein. Erster (- Zweyter) Band. In zwei Bänden.

      bey Johann Wendler, Leipzig 1764 - (9) Bll., 592 S.; Titel, 435, (1) S. Druckfehler. Halblederbände mit zwei farb. Rückenschilden und –vergoldung. Erste Ausgabe (Ueberweg 3,457 und 463ff.; Risse, Logik II,268; Ziegenfuss II,10f.; DSB VII,595ff.; Ruppert, Goethes Bibliothek 3092 [das Werk gehört zu den wenigen in Goethes Bibliothek, die auch schon in dem Verzeichnis von 1788, dort S.21, aufgeführt sind]). – Etwas gebräunt, etwas stockfleckig, Titel recht eng beschnitten. J.H.LAMBERT (Mühlhausen/Elsaß 1728 – 1777 Berlin) „ist als Mathematiker, Astronom und Naturforscher ebenso wie als Philosoph hervorragend.“ (Ueberweg). Von KANT, mit dem er in „bedeutungsvollem Briefwechsel“ stand, wurde er „sehr hochgeschätzt“. In seinem Brief vom 31.Dez. 1765. schreibt KANT: „Es hätte mir keine Zuschrift angenehmer und erwünschter seyn können, als diejenige, womit Sie mich beehrt haben, da ich, ohne etwas mehr als meine aufrichtige Meinung zu entdecken, Sie vor das erste Genie in Deutschland halte, welches fähig ist in derjenigen Art von Untersuchungen, die mich auch vornehmlich beschäftigen, eine wichtige und dauerhafte Verbesserung zu leisten.“ Als Philosoph war sein Einfluss bei den Zeitgenossen gering, zu den wenigen neben KANT, die LAMBERTs Denken zu würdigen wussten, zählte MENDELSSOHN, der den neuen Weg erkannte, den das Neue Organon der Philosophie eröffnete. An ABBT schrieb er am 12.Juli 1764: „Hätte ich des Herrn LAMBERT Neues Organon vor einigen Jahren gelesen, so wäre meine Preisschrift [Abhandlung über die Evidenz in Metaphysischen Wissenschaften, 1763] sicherlich im Pulte liegen geblieben, oder hätte vielleicht den Zorn des Vulkans empfunden. Nur ein LAMBERT weiß die verborgensten Wege der Vernunft, die geheimsten Zugänge zum Tempel der Wahrheit auszusuchen. Sein Werk ist das vortrefflichste von dieser Art .“ Die erste von zwei ausführlichen Rezensionen für die AdB (1766, Bd.3, S.1-23 und 1767, Bd.4, S.1-30), in denen er versuchte, dem Werk die ihm gebührende Aufmerksamkeit zu verschaffen, beginnt MENDELSSOHN mit den Worten: „Wir zeigen unsern Lesern hiermit ein Werk an, das, so kaltsinnig ihm auch von einigen Recensenten begegnet worden, in unseren Augen eines der vortreflichsten ist, die in diesem Jahrhundert zum Vorschein gekommen sind.“ Zu LAMBERTs Förderern zählte LEONHARD EULER, der ihn 1764 trotz des schlechten Eindrucks, den er bei dem König gemacht hatte, an die Berliner Akademie geholt hatte. „LAMBERT gehört zu den großen Vertretern der mathematischen Methodik in der Philosophie; sein Ziel war es, ein System von durchaus geometrischer Augenscheinlichkeit (Evidenz) und Gewißheit zu schaffen . bei der Behandlung der Logik war er der bedeutendste . KANT . hatte die Absicht, ihm die Kritik der reinen Vernunft zu widmen.“ (NDB XIII,437). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Voyages from Asia to America, for Completing the Discoveries of the North West Coast of America. To Which Is Prefixed, a Summary of the Voyages Made by the Russians on the Frozen Sea, in Search of a North East Passage.

      T. Jefferys, London - 1764, 2nd And best edition. () Very good. viii, 120pp. Quarto, 20th century quarter calf and paper over boards, matching endpapers. Mild toning. A very clean solid copy of a scarce work. 4 maps (2 folding). With ornate armorial bookplate of James Smith, and bookplate of Frank S. Streeter. Frank Streeter Copy. TPL 185, Lande 1358 and JCB 1300 (1ST EDS.); Sabin 51285; Translated from vol. Ill, part I of Mueller's Sammlung Russischer Geschichte. Of 1758, this edition of the English translation is enlarged by the addition of an index, and carries a new preface reflecting the changes wrought in North America by the Treaty of Paris, which brought the Seven Years' War to a close in 1763. Jefferys, in this new preface, takes issue with the maps which were drawn by the French as including too much territory under the name of Canada in order to lay claim to a great part of the continent; "if so, we have now the Pleasure to see their Artifices have met a proper Retaliation from an injured Nation, and, instead of gaining by their Encroachments upon others, they have lost all their valuable Settlements, and are themselves drove out of North America, which we have so gallantly and justly purchased by our Swords." Mueller was a scientist under Bering, and his work contains the original account of Bering's polar expedition and of his discovery of the strait which is named after him; it was through this expedition that the westernmost limits of North America were discovered and explored as far south as the present-day Prince of Wales Island. The maps are A Map of the Discoveries by the Russians on the North West Coast of America, A General Map of the Discoveries of Admiral de Fonte and other Navigators.in Quest of a Passage to the South Sea (by de I'Isle), A Map of the N.E. Parts of Asia, and N. W. Parts of America, showing their Situation with respect to Japan, and A Map of Canada and the North Part of Louisiana with the Adjacent Countrys.

        ORDONNANCE CONCERNANT LA LEVEE D'UNE SOMME DE 750 MILL LIVRES ARGENT DES IFLES, SUR LA COLONIE DE LA GUADELOUP, MARIE-GALANT, LA DESIRADE & DEPENDANCES, PENDANT L'ANNEE 1764 [caption title]

      Martinique: De l'Imprimerie de Pierre Richard, Imprimeur du Roi, 1764. Small quarto. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. An exceedingly rare and early Caribbean imprint, written by Peinier, steward of Guadeloupe and Martinique, addressed to the French government. After the Treaty of 1763 Guadeloupe was returned to France and Peinier's address touches on the "happy" return of the French government to the island. He goes on to discuss the difficulties of achieving an annual tax of £750,000 and presses the Crown for leniency on that debt. Peinier goes on to outline nineteen articles which will help to achieve a reliable income for the colony so that they may achieve enough funds to fulfill the fee for the following year. The articles include proposed taxes on slaves aged fourteen to sixty, with a larger fee for those in the sugar industry, and slightly smaller for slave owners with coffee or cotton plantations, exemption from duties on goods imported from France and the imposition of taxes on exported commodities, and taxes to be paid by individuals, including "mulattos and negros" who are born free. Peinier closes with a plea to have these ordinances approved and published so that all will follow them as law and proposes that any income made from these taxes which exceeds the annual fee imposed by France will be applied to the following year's debt. The beginnings of printing in Martinque, as with other Caribbean islands, is shrouded in mystery. The Walter Beinecke collection contains a printed form from 1759, and we have also seen a small pamphlet printed in 1762. The earliest we have handled is similar to this in format and dated May 7, 1764, and we are aware of another of similar format at the Bibliotheque Schoelcher in Martinique dated May 28, 1764. In contrast, the earliest imprint recorded by Bradford Swan in his work on Caribbean imprints is 1784. We cannot locate any other copies of this item.

        ORDONNANCE CONCERNANT LES FONCTIONS DE LA MAR…CHAUSS…E [caption title]

      Martinique: Pierre Richard, 1764. Small quarto. Folded sheets. Lightly creased. Near fine. Incredibly early and unrecorded imprint from the island of Martinique, regarding the establishment of a constabulary in Guadeloupe. Passed by the Governor of Guadeloupe (FranÁois-Charles de Bourlamaque, who remained in office one year, due to sudden death) and the Intendant (Louis Thomassin Peinier), this ordinance regulates the establishment of a constabulary company in Guadeloupe. Among the thirteen articles, several concern the arrest of fugitive slaves. No copies in the Catalogue Collectif de France or in OCLC. The first recorded printing on the island is by Bradford Swan in 1784, but we have handled one other imprint from 1764 and several from later in the 1760's, and have seen in commerce an imprint from as early as 1762. This is, therefore, among the earliest Caribbean imprints this firm has handled. As with virtually everything to do with early Caribbean imprints, the story of printing on Martinique remains shrouded in mystery. Rare, and perhaps a unique survival.

Letzte Werkausgabe des 18.

Dieser Tradition sind die aus der Liebe zu einer Jugendgespielin hervorgegangenen ersten Gedichte verpflichtet, deren letztes „Auf den Tod seiner geliebten Flavie“ erhalten ist. Der größte Teil seiner folgenden Liebeslyrik ist dem im Sommer 1714 beginnenden Verhältnis zu Magdalena Eleonore Jachmann gewidmet, mit der er sich im April 1715 verlobte. Die verbleibende Zeit an der schweidnitzer Schule war vor allem durch den Streit mit Th. Krause geprägt, der als bedeutender Vertreter der schlesischen bürgerlichen Öffentlichkeit, die in Günther ein Musterbeispiel des moralisch fragwürdigen Studenten sah, die Integrität und Reinheit der Verlobung in Zweifel gezogen hatte. Die auch durch diese Beschuldigungen veranlasste Abkehr seines Vaters vom dichtenden Sohn und die anhaltenden Vorwürfe der Unanständigkeit und Galanterie durch zahlreiche Zeitgenossen sollten Günther mehrere Jahre begleiten. Ebenfalls zur Belastung wurden ihm die sich widersprechenden Einflüsse des Pietismus Herrnhuter Prägung einerseits sowie der Leibniz\'schen Welt-Harmonie andererseits. (NDB VII, 269ff.) - Der auf dem oberen Teil des goldgeprägten Rückentitels genannte Vorbesitzer \"J. A. C. Callenberg 1764\" nicht endgültig zu identifizieren. - Der Pergamentband außergewöhnlich sauber, formerhalten und unbestoßen, einzig Kapitale und obere vordere Ecke sanft gebogen. Zusammenhalt der Farbschnitte nicht durch Lektüre beeinträchtigt, bloß geringfügig angestaubt. Papier gleichmäßig leicht gewellt und unmerklich gebräunt.

A concise polemic on behalf of the English beaver-hat trade, outlining that the superior British-manufactured beaver-hat, many of which were exported for the greater benefit of the nation, was imperilled by foreign, notably French, competition. The nine paragraph piece, which masquerades as a legal case in its form, and with a docket title, therefore suggests reform of the system in which beaver-skins could only be 'imported into Great Britain, either from Hudson's Bay, or his Majesty's Plantations in America', in order to avoid further deterioration in foreign trade and consequent loss of employment for the 'many thousand poor Families' dependent upon a thriving hat-trade, lower consumption of Coney-wool and the reduction in 'his Majesty's Revenues, in many respects, affected; particularly in the Duty on Goats-wool imported by the Turkey Company'. Rare, with ESTC locating only two copies of this variant, with the first line 'The art and mistery of making hats in Great Britain hath arrived', at BL and NLS. ESTC T93172.. Folio.

        [SAMMELBAND OF SIX 18th-CENTURY CONNECTICUT IMPRINTS RELATING TO YALE UNIVERSITY, INCLUDING TWO SETS OF STATUES FOR YALE COLLEGE]

      New Haven & New London, 1764. Late 18th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Extremities rubbed. Some headlines shaved. Minor foxing and toning. Very good. These important pamphlets relate to the controversies at Yale University during the Great Awakening, along with two versions of the regulations of the college. In response to the preaching of George Whitefield, President Clap assumed control of the main New Haven Church, preaching his own version of Protestantism. When townspeople protested, Clap defended his independence as in keeping with the statutes and traditions of the third oldest university in the colonies. Clap cited the Westminster catechism and the Saybrook Confession to defend his strict, evangelical, Calvinist preaching. The debate over free religious expression at Yale represents an episode which takes place not only elsewhere in the colonies but throughout American history. Items in the volume are as follows: 1) COLLEGII YALENSIS, QUOD EST NOVO-PORTU CONNECTICUTENSIUM, STATUTA, A PRAESIDE ET SOCIIS SANCITA. [New Haven]: Jacob Parker, 1759. [2],25,[1]pp. EVANS 8523.

        JUSHI KEI HAKKI SHINN KYUU CHI HOU: THE FOURTEEN ACUPUNCTURE"CHANNELS."

      Kyoto 1764, Kohto Shorin. Blue stitched wrs., covers scuffed. 2 vol. set, 28+76 double-folded leaves, woodblock printed by. hand on hand-made mulberry paper, 16 superb illustrations of. acupuncture "points," some old minor worming, restored. RARE. AN EARLY JAPANESE WOODBLOCK ILLUSTRATED WORK THE AUTHOR: Katsu was also known as Hakunin, was a pre-Ming dynasty Chinese physician who wrote a book on the introduction of moxibustion [moxa is mugwort, the herb artemisia vulgaris latifolia] system into Japan from China. * THE ORIGINAL TITLE: PART ONE: The original one volume edition of 2 parts was published in 1684 with the title: JUSHIKEI HAKKI. Our copy a later edition of this famous first work on the subject. . Mestler in his historic "GALAXY" [see below] has devoted much space to this work on pages 473-476. We quote & summarize his comments: "...it is a theoretical discussion chiefly on acupuncture but equally applicable to moxa...the first part discussed the fundamental belief of the Chinese and Japanese in relationship between specific sites on the outside of the body." . SECOND PART: The second part [author unknown], subtitled JUSHIKEI KETSU CHI-HO gave practical instruction" ...on how to use needles and moxa. The whole work was later explained by Okamoto Ippo under the title JUSHIKEI RYAKI WAGO IN 1693, in 3 volumes. . EXCELLENT ILLUSTRATIONS: Of note are the excellent illustrations found in this work, showing the practitioner the "points" and where to apply acupuncture needles or moxa. Mestler has pointed this out and illustrated this in his book on plate I, B, showing the posterior view of a man with external measurements, and referring also to the differences between lean and fat individuals and the influence of aging. . The anterior view is also illustrated in the Katsu work among so many other illustrations. Moxa was also placed on thin slabs of garlic, then ignited with fire to get the maximum therapeutic results. Needles inserted at these same "points" were often enhanced by rolling small balls of damp moxa at the end of the needles & burned after inserted. See Mestler's "GALAXY" below for many other entries on Katsu, acupuncture & moxa. * A very early and important "First" illustrated resource on the subject of acupuncture and moxa. * CONDITION: The title slip on vol.1 is well rubbed, some loss; vol. 2 title slip was replaced with a hand-written example. The book is solidly stitched adn stable, front, rear covers very rubbed, some color loss. * EDITION: This is the 1764 reprint of the 1684 edition. *** REFERENCES: Mestler, Gordon E.

        Johann Christian Günthers Gedichte. - [Angebunden]: Anhang zu der sechsten Auflage der Güntherischen Gedichte.

      Breslau und Leipzig: Johann Ernst Meyer 1764 - Frontispiz, Titel, Vortitel, (8) Seiten Vorrede, 1008 Seiten Hauptwerk, (24) Seiten Verzeichnis, 170 Seiten Anhang, 4 Seiten Register. Frakturdruck. Mit Frontispiz (Epitaph mit Bildnismedaillon des jung verstorbenen Verfassers, gestochen von J. D. Philippin geb. Sysang nach S. G. Herzog), einer gestochenen Titelvignette und etwas Buchschmuck im Text. Letzte Werkausgabe des 18. Jahrhunderts, Umarbeitung der 1735 erschienenen Edition mit zusätzlichem Abdruck der ursprünglich ausgeschlossenen Poesien im separaten Anhang. - Killy IV, 414ff. - Kosch VI, 1009ff. - Goedeke III, 155, 2 w/x. - Wilpert/Gühring 43. - Johann Christian Günther (1695-1723) wurde nach fünfzehnjährigem Heimunterricht schon früh durch Vertreter der Dichtung der sogenannten Zweiten Schlesischen Schule gefördert. Dieser Tradition sind die aus der Liebe zu einer Jugendgespielin hervorgegangenen ersten Gedichte verpflichtet, deren letztes „Auf den Tod seiner geliebten Flavie" erhalten ist. Der größte Teil seiner folgenden Liebeslyrik ist dem im Sommer 1714 beginnenden Verhältnis zu Magdalena Eleonore Jachmann gewidmet, mit der er sich im April 1715 verlobte. Die verbleibende Zeit an der schweidnitzer Schule war vor allem durch den Streit mit Th. Krause geprägt, der als bedeutender Vertreter der schlesischen bürgerlichen Öffentlichkeit, die in Günther ein Musterbeispiel des moralisch fragwürdigen Studenten sah, die Integrität und Reinheit der Verlobung in Zweifel gezogen hatte. Die auch durch diese Beschuldigungen veranlasste Abkehr seines Vaters vom dichtenden Sohn und die anhaltenden Vorwürfe der Unanständigkeit und Galanterie durch zahlreiche Zeitgenossen sollten Günther mehrere Jahre begleiten. Ebenfalls zur Belastung wurden ihm die sich widersprechenden Einflüsse des Pietismus Herrnhuter Prägung einerseits sowie der Leibniz'schen Welt-Harmonie andererseits. (NDB VII, 269ff.) - Der auf dem oberen Teil des goldgeprägten Rückentitels genannte Vorbesitzer "J. A. C. Callenberg 1764" nicht endgültig zu identifizieren. - Der Pergamentband außergewöhnlich sauber, formerhalten und unbestoßen, einzig Kapitale und obere vordere Ecke sanft gebogen. Zusammenhalt der Farbschnitte nicht durch Lektüre beeinträchtigt, bloß geringfügig angestaubt. Papier gleichmäßig leicht gewellt und unmerklich gebräunt. Hervorragend erhaltenes und intaktes Exemplar des umfangreichen Werkes eines der bedeutendsten deutschen Lyriker zwischen Mittelalter und frühem Goethe. In diesem Zustand Unikat. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1490 8° (20 x 13 cm).

        Historical and Chronological Deduction of the Origin of Commerce

      1764 - (ANDERSON, Adam). An Historical and Chronological Deduction of the Origin of Commerce, From the Earliest Accounts to the present Time. Containing An History of the great Commercial Interests of the British Empire… London: A. Millar, et al., 1764. Two volumes. Tall folio (10-1/2 by 17 inches), contemporary full brown calf rebacked with elaborately gilt-decorated spines laid down, burgundy morocco spine labels, raised bands. $8500.First edition of this important authoritative history of commerce, with a global authority that includes a focus on Britain’s acquisition of “new American markets,” as well as the greater consequences of “the very extraordinary actions of the year 1720” when the South Sea Bubble burst (Sabin), complete with three large folding maps, handsome in contemporary calf."The most comprehensive history of the earlier centuries of British overseas trade, Adam Anderson's Origin of Commerce was first published in the 1760s as the mercantile age was at its height. It was 'to the instrumentality of Commerce alone,' Anderson suggested, that 'the Britannic Empire is most peculiarly indebted for its Opulence and Grandeur" (Ormrod, Rise of Commercial Empires, 1). Reflecting on Britain's economic ties to North America, Anderson shared a general feeling in the pre-revolutionary years "that the colonies were to perform a dual role as producers of raw materials to be used by English manufacturers and as consumers of finished English products. This arrangement was seen… as reciprocally advantageous to both England and America" (Peskin, Manufacturing Revolution, 22). Praised by Adam Smith in Wealth of Nations (1776) as "sober and judicious" in his research, Anderson welcomed trade with the colonies and "was delighted that Britain had acquired new American markets… He also congratulated the Americans on increasing their trade, 'perpetually increasing their useful productions, cultivating new plantations, and successfully attempting new materials for commerce.' He referred mainly to the raw materials produced by the southern colonies…. [as well as] New England lumber and food products of the mid-Atlantic colonies…. giving particular stress to those colonial products that might be useful to British manufacturing" (Peskin, 22). In this "monument of stupendous industry" (DNB), Anderson's scope is global and yet specific, devoting a considerable portion to British colonial interests and offering a "most accurate account of the South Sea Company and the very extraordinary actions of the year 1720" when the Bubble burst (Sabin 1382). Within this impressive two-volume work are extensive references to treaties, parliamentary acts, the substantive contributions of economic texts, and thorough statistical accounts of currency, population and wealth. With large folding hemispheric map of the world and two other maps. Sabin 1382. Goldsmith 9939. Kress 6154. Palgrave I:39. Rare English Books on Banking 13. Infrequent scattered foxing, a bit of very minor marginal dampstaining to Volume II, marginal wormholing to Volume II appendix only, expert restoration to contemporary calf boards.

        THE CASE OF THE PROVINCES OF MASSACHUSETTS-BAY AND NEW- YORK. RESPECTING THE BOUNDARY LINE BETWEEN THE TWO PROVINCES

      Boston, 1764. Stitched as issued. A fine, uncut copy. In a cloth slipcase with bookplates of Matt B. Jones and Harrison D. Horblit on the chemise. The dispute over the New York and Massachusetts border went back to the period of Dutch control in the latter colony, and had remained an issue through a century of British control of both provinces. Hutchinson, as governor of Massachusetts, moved to resolve the question. Here he sets out the position of Massachusetts in the discussion. Quite rare. Howes states that only five complete copies are known, though there are several more copies listed in ESTC. Goodspeed's sold the present copy in 1941, from the Matt B. Jones collection.

        ORDONNANCE CONCERNANT LA LEVEE D'UNE SOMME DE 750 MILL LIVRES ARGENT DES IFLES, SUR LA COLONIE DE LA GUADELOUP, MARIE-GALANT, LA DESIRADE & DEPENDANCES, PENDANT L'ANNEE 1764 [caption title].

      Martinique: De l'Imprimerie de Pierre Richard, Imprimeur du Roi, Feb. 24, 1764.. 8pp. Small quarto. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. An exceedingly rare and early Caribbean imprint, written by Peinier, steward of Guadeloupe and Martinique, addressed to the French government. After the Treaty of 1763 Guadeloupe was returned to France and Peinier's address touches on the "happy" return of the French government to the island. He goes on to discuss the difficulties of achieving an annual tax of £750,000 and presses the Crown for leniency on that debt. Peinier goes on to outline nineteen articles which will help to achieve a reliable income for the colony so that they may achieve enough funds to fulfill the fee for the following year. The articles include proposed taxes on slaves aged fourteen to sixty, with a larger fee for those in the sugar industry, and slightly smaller for slave owners with coffee or cotton plantations, exemption from duties on goods imported from France and the imposition of taxes on exported commodities, and taxes to be paid by individuals, including "mulattos and negros" who are born free. Peinier closes with a plea to have these ordinances approved and published so that all will follow them as law and proposes that any income made from these taxes which exceeds the annual fee imposed by France will be applied to the following year's debt. The beginnings of printing in Martinque, as with other Caribbean islands, is shrouded in mystery. The Walter Beinecke collection contains a printed form from 1759, and we have also seen a small pamphlet printed in 1762. The earliest we have handled is similar to this in format and dated May 7, 1764, and we are aware of another of similar format at the Bibliotheque Schoelcher in Martinique dated May 28, 1764. In contrast, the earliest imprint recorded by Bradford Swan in his work on Caribbean imprints is 1784. We cannot locate any other copies of this item.

        Handmaid to the Arts ... The Second Edition, with considerable Additions and Improvements

      London: printed for J. Nourse, 1764. 2 volumes, 8vo. (8 x 5 inches). Contemporary tree calf, skilfully rebacked to style, the flat spines divided into six compartments by gilt roll tools, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, red circular morocco label bearing the volume number in the fourth compartment The second enlarged edition of this valuable work. This work was first published in 1758, and it contains information on all aspects painting, engraving, colouring of prints, transfer of prints onto glass, colouring of glass, etching of glass, Japanning, lacquering, papier mache, marbling paper, etc. A fascinating compendium. Robert Dossie (1717-1777) was an apothecary, but his interests were very wide ranging and spanned the gulf between the Sciences and the Arts. His training and his knowledge of chemistry allowed him to understand the science behind many of the processes used by artists, artisans and manufacturers of the day, and his wish was to explain and improve on the results that were achieved. He strove for this in his publications, including the present work, and the same motivation led him to help fund the Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce in 1754. His works were appreciated during his lifetime, were translated into various languages and contain information that remains valuable today.

        A Map of the most Inhabited part of New England containing the Provinces of Massachusets Bay and New Hampshire, with the Colonies of Conecticut and Rhode Island, Divided into Counties and Townships: The whole composed from Actual Surveys and its Situation adjusted by Astronomical Observations

      London: Thomas Jefferys, 1764. Copper-engraved map, on four unjoined and untrimmed sheets as issued. The largest and most detailed map of New England that had yet been published, and one of the great maps of the east coast of America, by one of the greatest figures in 18th-century cartography: 'Mead's contributions to cartography stand out ... At a time when the quality and the ethics of map production were at a low ebb in England, he vigorously urged and practiced the highest standards' (Cumming, p.47) This is the grandest, most accurate and detailed map of New England produced during the British colonial period. It depicts the entire region from Long Island Sound up north to line of 44'30 of latitude. While it shows that the coastal areas, and the lower Connecticut Valley were well settled, areas of the interior, especially in New Hampshire and the future Vermont were just developing, with the early boundaries of townships having recently been established by surveyors. Importantly, this map contains two highly-detailed cartographic insets, one of the city of Boston (upper-left), and another of Boston Harbor on the lower-right sheet. The map is also adorned with a very handsome pictorial title cartouche, depicting the arrival of the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock in 1620. The present map is the first issue of the second edition of this work, and has been significantly updated from the original issue of 1755. The map's publisher, Thomas Jefferys was the leading British mapmaker of the mid-eighteenth century. He became geographer to the Prince of Wales in 1746 and then to King George III in 1760. He published a remarkable number of maps and charts, and is best known for his work The American Atlas (1775) This map's maker, John Green, was an intriguing and larger-than-life figure, who has been called "the genius behind Jefferys." In addition to his extensive cartographic abilities, Green's personal history also stands out from amongst the biographies of other 18th-century British map makers. Green was born Braddock Mead in Ireland around 1688, married in Dublin in 1715 and moved to London in 1717. He was imprisoned in 1728 for trying to defraud an Irish heiress, and assumed his alias after his release from prison. He worked with Ephriam Chambers on his Universal Dictionary before joining the employ of Cave, Astley, and Jefferys. William Cumming remarked that he 'had a number of marked characteristics as a cartographer ... One was his ability to collect, to analyze the value of, and to use a wide variety of sources; these he acknowledged scrupulously on the maps he designed and even more fully in accompanying remarks. Another outstanding characteristic was his intelligent compilation and careful evaluation of reports on latitudes and longitudes used in the construction of his maps, which he also entered in tables on the face of the maps ... Mead's contributions to cartography stand out ... At a time when the quality and the ethics of map production were at a low ebb in England, he vigorously urged and practiced the highest standards; in the making of maps and navigational charts he was in advance of his time. For this he deserves due credit.'

        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 Encarnaci?n 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.
