        Two Treatises of Government.

      London: Reprinted, the sixth time, by A. Millar, H. Woodfall, I. Whiston and B. White, I. Rivington, L. Davis and C. Reymers, R. Baldwin, Hawes Clarke and Collins; W. Johnston, W. Owen, I. Richardson, S. Crowder, T. Longman, B. Law, C. Rivington, E. Dilly, R. Withy, C. and R. Ware, S. Baker, T. Payne, A. Shuckburgh, I. Hinxman,, 1764. Octavo (203 x 120 mm). Contemporary red morocco for Thomas Hollis, gilt rule border on covers, with Liberty centrally stamped gilt on covers, titles, owl motif, and compartments to spine gilt, marbled edges and endpapers. Housed in a custom cloth slipcase. Engraved portrait frontispiece of the author, 2 smoke prints bound before and after the work. Spine sunned, small strip to front cover, joints partially split but sound, occasional light spotting to contents. An excellent copy, handsomely bound. First Hollis edition, in a Hollis presentation binding. Presentation copy, inscribed on the first blank to Thomas Birch (1705-1766), an English historian, "Tho. Birch, 4 June 1764. Donum Tho. Hollis Arm." Thomas Hollis (1720-1774) was a political propagandist and collector of arts who was keen to promote civil and religious liberty, and who probably financed this edition, at least in part, commissioning the frontispiece, which was engraved by Cipriani. He strove to keep the cause of parliamentary reform alive during a difficult period by reprinting and distributing literature on government and liberty. He had strong links with the United States and was a benefactor to Harvard and Princeton universities among others. This copy was subsequently presented to David Wallace Bryant, in recognition of his service to the Harvard University Library, with a bookplate to the front pastedown. This binding was executed by one of Hollis's favourite binders, John Matthewman, with tools designed by Cipriani for Hollis, in their earlier cutting. The tools were destroyed in a fire at Matthewman's house on 5 June 1764, the day after Hollis presented the book to Thomas Birch. Locke's Two Treatises of Government was conceived as a vindication of the Revolution of 1688-9, which had "saved the Nation when it was on the very brink of Slavery and Ruine" (Locke's preface). The attack on Filmer's divine-right theory in the first treatise and the complete political philosophy set out in the second make up one of the most famous and influential works in the history of liberalism. In Locke, we find the principles of democracy: he believed passionately that the consent of the people was the sole basis of a government's authority. "The people shall be judge." If a ruler violated the "moral trust" of his subjects, it was their "moral duty" to resist. Locke had an undeniable influence on Jefferson and the drawing up of the Declaration of Independence. He maintained that a government's main duty was the preservation of life, liberty and property. Liberty was a natural right that men brought with them from a state of nature into civil society. Jefferson borrowed Locke's basic idea that all men were created equal, but altered Locke's statement on the right to life, liberty and property to "the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Inscribed to head of title page ‘W. Jerningham one of the greatest farmers if you will take his own word for’.Kress 6188; Goldsmiths 9959; ESTC T96316. Much in this work is general discussion, and Harte displays a wide acquaintance with the extensive literature of his subject, both English and foreign, contemporary and classical. Like most of his eighteenth century confréres, Harte admits the extent of farming literature, but doubts its quality, and indeed that it had ever been widely read by the class of men for whose benefit it had been written. Young an admirer and friend of Hartes' said of him 'His conversation of the subject of Husbandry is as full of experience and as truly solid as his genuine and active humour, extensive knowledge of mankind and admirable philanthropy are pleasing and instructive.'

        Dissertation sur Elie et Enoch. Par l'Auteur (Mr Boulanger). Des Recherches sur l'Origine du Despotisme Oriental Et servant de suite à cette Ouvrage. Au Dix-Huitième siècle.

      1764 - In-12 de XIV-216 pp., veau havane marbré, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale. L'Auteur des deux premiers textes serait bien Nicolas Boulanger ; pour le troisième texte : Traité Mathematique sur le Bonheur par Irenée Krantzovius. 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.

        An inquiry into the human mind, on the principles of common sense

      Edinburgh: A. Millar, 1764. xvi, 541, [1, errata]pp. 206 x 125 mm. Modern quarter morocco, cloth boards. Moderate toning, scattered foxing but very good. Early owner?s name on title. First Edition of Reid?s classic philosophical text on the nature of perception, which went through over forty editions after its first appearance in 1764. Reid, who succeeded Adam Smith as professor of moral philosophy at the University of Glasgow, originated the School of Common Sense Realism, which taught that ?every person had ordinary experiences that provided intuitively certain assurance of a) the existence of the self; b) the existence of real objects that could be seen and felt; and c) certain ?first principles? upon which sound morality and religious beliefs could be established? (Wikipedia). Reid?s approach was a response to the idealist philosophies of Hume and Berkeley, who had argued that our concept of the external world is a product of ideas in the mind. Reid wrote three major philosophical works, of which the Inquiry was the first. ?In the Inquiry, a methodologically pioneering work due to its extensive and rigorous use of observational data to justify claims about perception, Reid examines each of the five senses and discusses the ways in which we achieve knowledge of the world by employing them? (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy).

      Philadelphia, 1764. 19th-century half calf and marbled boards. Bookplate on front pastedown and fly leaf. Ink stamp of John Carter Brown on p. iii. Light foxing and soiling, confined primarily to exterior leaves. Good. In a blue half morocco and cloth folder. Joseph Galloway was one of the leaders of the Pennsylvania Assembly, and a close ally of Benjamin Franklin. Through this speech and other measures he won the support of the Assembly for a petition to King George III pleading that the proprietary governors of Pennsylvania be replaced by direct royal government. Galloway would go on to become the most prominent American Loyalist during the Revolution. John Dickinson, whose speech prompted this response from Galloway, would go on to write LETTERS FROM A FARMER IN PENNSYLVANIA..., the most important document of the Stamp Act crisis. "The 'Preface' of 35 pages, was written by Franklin, and is a very bitter attack on the Penns and their partizans [sic]" - Ford. This first printing of Galloway's speech is scarce.

      Glocester: Majesty, London, 1764. Quarto. Handsomely bound to style in three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt extra, leather label. Light foxing and toning; light scattered soiling. John Carter Brown duplicate, with his 19th-century rubber stamp on titlepage. Very good. The first English and second chronological edition, an abridged translation by James Grieve from the original Russian, first published in 1755. "Contains one of the earliest descriptions of Russian America and the Kurile Islands" - Howes. "Krasheninnikov, a young student of the Academy of Sciences, was sent to join Bering's second expedition as an assistant to Steller. Steller and he spent some time exploring Kamchatka and making notes for a subsequent report. Steller's notes were available to Krasheninnikov, who used them in the preparation of the present work, along with his own observations. In the preface which Krasheninnikov proposed to write to his work, he was to give information as to how he happened to be sent to Kamchatka, also what part of Steller's work was included by him in his DESCRIPTION, etc. Unfortunately, Krasheninnikov died before the printing of his DESCRIPTION was completed. In the text of the latter, however, Krasheninnikov often mentioned Steller as the source of his information..." - Lada-Mocarski. Steller's own account of the voyage with Bering was not published until 1793. The second part of Krasheninnikov's narrative is devoted to the botanical and natural history aspects of the region, including many valuable observations, comprising what is generally considered to be the pioneering natural history work concerning Alaska and Kamchatka. The attractive plates are some of the earliest depictions of the natives and their habitat. Lada-Mocarski states that the first edition "is a very rare book...and difficult to secure.

      - Detaillierte, altkolorierte Karte Weltkarte in zwei Hemisphären (Ø je 27 cm) von Johann Georg Klinger (1764-1806). Ober- und unterhalb der Weltkarte befinden sich detallierte, schematische Zeichnungen zum Sonnensystem sowie verschiedenen Himmelsphänomenen, wie Mond- und Sonnenfinsternis, Kometen, Saturn und Mond, dem Lauf der Erde um die Sonne und der Laufbahn des Mondes um die Erde. In der Darstellung des Sonnensystems ist der Planet Uranus an der Stelle eingezeichnet, an der ihn Friedrich Wilhelm Herschel (1738-1822) 1781 entdeckt hatte. Zudem befinden sich am oberen Rand zwei Lorbeer-Kartuschen mit dem Titel und der Nennung des Zeichners und Stechers des Blattes. Die ursprüngliche Angabe des Entstehungsjahres 1791, das in dem Exemplar der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek in München belegt ist, ist bei dem vorliegenden Stich mit einer ornamentalen Schmuckform überstochen worden (linke Kartusche). Das Blatt ist somit nach 1791 zu datieren. Der Künstler Johann Georg Klinger war der bekannteste Globenhersteller in Nürnberg am Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts. In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Mechaniker und Drechsler Johann Bernhard Bauer (1752-1839) brachte Klinger ab 1790 Globen in verschiedenen Sprachen und Durchmessern heraus. Für seine Erdgloben benutzte er die Ergebnisse des britischen Weltumseglers James Cook (1728-1779), der zahlreiche Inseln im Pazifischen Ozean entdeckte sowie weitere Inseln vermaß und kartografierte. Auch die vorliegende Weltkarte betont die Entdeckungsreisen Cooks in besonderem Maße: Auf den beiden Hemissphärenhälften werden dessen Reiserouten und Stationen mit der jeweiligen Jahreszahl vermerkt sowie auch dessen gewaltsamer Tod in der Bucht von Kealakekua auf Hawaii im Februar 1779 angegeben. Zustand: etwas angestaubt, kaum fleckig, links 3 kleinere Einrisse hinterklebt, schwache Knickfalten, ansonsten gut erhalten.

      London: William Richardson and Samuel Clark, 1764.. xliii,xi,141pp. 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.

      London, 1764. Sheet size: of each 29 3/8 x 21 3/8 inches. Very good. 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 the 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-18th 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 Ephraim 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" (Cumming, p.45).

Als Besonderheit von Titel 3, Reglement der Tambouren, ist zu erwähnen, dass die Schlagvorgaben für die verschiedenen Ordonnanzen (?Trommelsignale?) nicht etwa in einer entsprechenden Noten- oder Taktschrift, sondern lautmalerisch in Silben verfasst sind: ?Rrrang / tatangtang / rrrang / tatangtang?, ?Rratatang / plangplaplang / plangplaplang?, ?Prramplam, plamplam, plamplam?, wenn nicht ?Prrrr / rrang / prrang? oder gar nur ?rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr? ?Wie man zu schlagen soll aufhoeren lassen : Auf ein gegebenes Zeichen [.] müssen sämtliche Tamburen das Schlagen mit einem Rrrang unterbrechen, welches im Augenblick des gegebenen Zeichens auf einmal mit einander geschehen soll, dergestalt, dass es scheine, als würde das Spiel von einem einzigen Tambur gerührt.? (p. 20). ? Titel 4, ?Eid und verkürzte Instruction? listet die generellen Verhaltensregeln für einen Land-Major (?Pflichtenheft? in 40 Punkten): ?Da es meinen Gnädigen Herren und Oberen, Räth und Burgeren beliebtet, dass ein jedes Regiment deutschen Lands, einen eigenen ihm gewidmeten Land-Major haben solle, so haben Hochdieselben folgende Sätze zur Instruction gesetzt, mit ernstlichem Befehl, denselben aufs genauste nachzuleben, und sie auf keine Weise zu überschreiten.? (p. 6). Dazu Pkt. XL: ?Ueberhaupt wird jeder Land-Major sich sein Departement aufs beste bekannt zu machen suchen, auch sich bestreben, das Herz, die Liebe und das Zutrauen seiner Untergebenen zu erwerben, wozu er allein durch eine anständige und gegen dem Volk allerdings geziemende Sanftmuth gelangen kan; so wie hingegen grobe Worte, Flüche oder gar Stokschläge dem Landmann sehr empfindlich und von Meinen Gnädigen Herren und Oberen aufs schärfste und bey Hochderoselben Ungnade verboten sind.

      N. p., 28. II. 1764. - 3 pp. 4to. on double leaf. Black ink. The newest tragedy by Saurin, "Blanche et Guiscard, tragédie imitée de l'anglais de Tancred and Sigismunda de Thomson", gives Voltaire a reason to repeat his aversion to Shakespeare and English theatre: "Vous avez fait, monsieur, bien de l'honneur à ce Tomson. Je l'ai connu il y a quelque quarante années. S'il avait scu être un peu plus interessant dans ses autres pièces, et moins déclamateur, il aurait transformé le théâtre anglais, que Gilles Shakespear a fait naître et à gâté, mais ce Gilles Shakespear avec toute la barbarie et son ridicule, a comme Lopez de Véga des trais si naïfs et si vrais, et un fracas d'actions si imposant, que tous les raisonnements de Pierre Corneille sont à la glace en comparaison du tragique de ce Gilles [.] Les anglais on un autre avantage sur nous, c'est de se passer de la rime. Le mérite de nos grands poëtes est souvent dans la difficulté de la rime surmontée et le mérite des poëtes anglais est souvent dans l'expression de la nature [.] Vous savez il n'y a pas un mot de vrai dans l'histoire de Sigismunda et Guiscardo, mais je vous sais bon gré d'avoir donné des louanges à ce Mainfroid dont les papes [biffé et réécrit] ont dit tant de mal [.] Un temps viendra où la St Barthelémi sera un sujet de tragédie [.]". - Voltaire.

Rare première édition française de ‘The Theory of Moral Sentiments’ et première apparition d’un texte d’Adam Smith en français. C’est le baron d’Holbach qui conseilla à Marc-Antoine Eidous, ami de Diderot, traducteur et encyclopédiste, de se charger de cette traduction. Hume, qui résidait à Paris, prévint Smith qui recommanda de se baser sur la seconde édition (1761) de son ouvrage. Finalement publiée en 1764 chez Briasson, l'un des principaux éditeurs de l'Encyclopédie, l'oeuvre ne rencontra pas le succès public escompté et le livre fut diffusé confidentiellement.

        Lettre autographe signée (1793) / Guerre de Vendée (Stofflet)

      - WOIRGARD Charles-Victor Beaurgard dit(1764-1810). Général de brigade français. Lettre signée, Concourson-sur-Layon (Maine-et-Loire), 6 nivôse an III (26 décembre 1794), au conventionnel Charles Cochon de Lapparent, 2 pages in-4, en-tête imprimé « Le général de brigade Beaurgard » avec vignette gravée sur bois. Petite déchirure angulaire. Très intéressante lettre sur la Guerre de Vendée au moment où s’ouvrent des négociations de paix entre les insurgés royalistes et le Convention. « C’est copie d’une proclamation de monsieur Stoflet, vice roi de Vendée ( ) pour terminer cette malheureuse guerre, il faut cette discipline sévère » « Au représentant du peuple Cochon Je profite Représentant de la permission que tu as bien voulu m’accorder de t’écrire, et te rendre compte de ce qui se passe à l’armée de l’ouest. Elle est maintenant disciplinée et il ne ce commet plus ses horreurs qui de tous tems ont révolté l’honnête homme. Le gal en chef Canclaux (Jean-Baptiste Canclaux) mérite la confiance de toute l’armée, et avec de pareille chef on ne peut opérer que le bien. Le soldat républicain sera toujours ce que sera son chef. Les brigands ne paraissent point disposé à se rendre. Nous avons eux plusieurs pour-parler avec eux ; dont plusieurs de nos camarades ont été victimes de leur trop de confiance, et ont péri par leur zêle à leur faire sentir que la Convention ne leur accordait cette amnistie que par acte d’humanité et non par crainte. J’ai été obligé de défendre sous les peines les plus sévères tous colloques avec eux. Je te fais passer une pièce originale en son espèce. C’est copie d’une proclamation de monsieur Stoflet, vice roi de Vendée, cmdt en chef les armées de l’Anjou et du Haut-Poitou ; par sa lecture tu verras qu’ils sont loing de se rendre (j’entends les chefs) ( ) Conformément aux intentions du comité de salut public, nous avons parvenus à mettre les vertus à l’ordre du jour dans l’armée de l’Ouest, et nos braves frères d’armes commance à sentir comme vous représentans que pour terminer cette malheureuse guerre, il faut cette discipline sévère où nous les maintenons ( ) Beaurgard ». Beaurgard sert à Jemmapes et Neerwinden, et devient général de brigade provisoire le 12 avril 1793, confirmé le 30 avril 1793. Suspendu de ses fonctions en octobre 1793, il est emprisonné puis remis en liberté en août 1794 et retrouve son grade. À l’armée de l’Ouest, il est destitué en 1796, par Hoche, pour avoir favorisé le pillage et l’indiscipline. Mais il est blanchi par un conseil de guerre et retrouve son grade en décembre 1796. Son nom est inscrit sur l’arc de triomphe à Paris. Au printemps 1794, les colonnes infernales de Turreau avaient été dissoutes et des mesures prises pour cantonner les soldats et interdire les pillages. Sous la Convention thermidorienne, les représentants en mission et les nouveaux chefs militaires (Hoche et Canclaux) appliquent une politique de clémence à l’égard des insurgés. Les prisonniers sont relâchés et les insoumis amnistiés. Le 23 décembre 1794, la Convention autorise les représentants en mission à négocier avec les chefs royalistes. Le 28 janvier 1795, Stofflet demande le rétablissement du trône dans un manifeste contresigné par l’abbé Bernier. Un accord de paix est néanmoins conclu le 17 février 1795 (paix de La Jaunaye). Stofflet ne reconnaitra jamais cette paix et accusera Charrette d’avoir trahi la Vendée.

Began the 9th Day of April, 1691; and Ended the 27th of September, 1743. WITH: Journal of the Votes and Proceedings of the General Assembly of the Colony of New-York. Began the 8th Day of November, 1743; and Ended the 23rd of December, 1765.New York: Hugh Gaine, 1764, 1766.Two volumes.First edition of this ?"cornerstone of New York and American colonial history,?" an exceptional association copy inscribed by James Fenimore Cooper and dated by him: ?"May 1845,?" additionally inscribed by his brothers, son and grandson. This first edition of the Journals represents the first collected publication of the New York Assembly?'s landmark petitions against the Sugar Act, claiming the right ?"to secure that great Badge of English Liberty, of being taxed only with our own Consent.?"This outstanding association copy of the pre-Revolutionary Journals of the New York General Assembly was in the Cooper family for decades before being received by James Fenimore Cooper in 1845. Featuring a remarkable series of familial inscriptions in both volumes, these Journals were given to Cooper by his brother, then passed along to the author?'s son and grandson. A writer who ?"consistently stressed the significance of American politics and culture?" and reflected this passion in both his fiction and many histories, Cooper ?"secured his place as the first true American novelist?" with his third novel The Pioneers (1823), which featured the character Major Hartman, modeled after Hendrick Frey, the family friend who first presented these Journals to Cooper?'s brother Richard in 1812 (Introduction, American Democrat).In addition to this extraordinary provenance, the Journals represent the first printing of the ?"most important legal collection of its time, and a cornerstone of New York and American colonial history?" (Jenkins). Covering the proceedings of the first permanent Assembly of the New York colony from its initial meeting on April 9, 1691 through December 23, 1765, the Journals were invaluable to Cooper?'s work, for he systematically consulted ?"authentic publick records, private documents, more especially those in possession of the Cooper family?" (Chronicles of Coopertown, 3). Significantly this pre-Revolutionary chronicle also provides a detailed ?"constitutional history of New York?" (Marke 80), especially the Assembly?'s role in leading the movement toward independence. Of special note are accounts of the Assembly?'s heated dispute with the Crown on the judiciary, its resistance to the Currency and Sugar Acts, and its bold assertion of September 11, 1764, in which the Assembly asserted its right ?"to secure that great Badge of English Liberty, of being taxed only with our own Consent… and also in pointing out to the Ministry, the many Mischiefs arising from the Act, commonly called, the Sugar Act?" (II:749-50, italics in text). That frank objection emerged again in petitions introduced over the coming months—such as that of October 18, in which the Assembly claimed the right to ?"an Exemption from the Burthen of all Taxes not granted by themselves,?" and in one voice warned of ?"tragical Consequences?" should Parliament continue in ?"divesting us of the Right to tax ourselves?" (II:776-7). As such, the Journals?' petitions for the ?"right not to be taxed for revenue by Parliament are among the great state papers of the pre-Revolutionary period?" (Knollenberg, 189).Benedict 368. Evans 9756, 10418. Jenkins 175 (Volume I). Sabin 53719. OCLC lists 44 copies.Light foxing and dampstaining. Expert restoration to contemporary sheep and labels.

        Poème autographe "Fable" / Fable satirique contre LOUIS XVI et MARIE-ANTOINETTE

      - GRACCHUS BABEUF (1764-1797) Jounaliste et penseur révolutionnaire. Poème autographe, Fable, 1 page et demie in-8. Très rare et curieuse fable satirique contre Louis XVI et Marie-Antoinette (47 vers). Ancienne collection Philippe Zoummeroff. « Chassons, se dirent-ils du trône, Cette drôlesse et ce butor, Et nous donnerons la couronne, Au puiné qui plaint notre sort » « Le lion, de toute antiquité, Jouissait de la royauté Sur le peuple qu’on nomme bête : Mais Jupiter se mit en tête Voulant favoriser ces pauvres animaux De les changer de Maitre et soulager leurs maux Il donna donc à ce peuple bonace Un nouveau Maître d’une nouvelle race. Un tigre, dira t-on ? Non ! C’était un anon. Animal entêté, mais nullement sévère, Simple, bon, mais faible, voilà son caractère Encor s’il se fut contenté De s’accoupler en parenté Avec jeune et gentille anesse Mais son épouse était tigresse Haïssant ses propres sujets Sur-tout libertine à l’excès Pour gouverner avec licence Il lui fallut des favoris Et dans la plus abjecte engeance Ces êtres vils furent tous pris ( ) Elle avait mis au Ministère Un paon le plus vain des oiseaux Qui pour la flatter et lui plaire De tout l’aidait à s’emparer Le peuple ne put subsister Et bientôt perdant patience Cria contr’elle et son anon Et envoie faire remontrance Au dit seigneur Aliboron (l’âne des Fables de La Fontaine) Mais maudite fut l’ambassade Il répond par une ruade. Aussitôt le peuple irrité De cet abus d’autorité Cessant alors d’être fidèle Prit le parti d’être rebelle D’agneaux qu’ils avaient été tous Ils devinrent autant de loups. Chassons, se dirent-ils du trône Cette drôlesse et ce butor Et nous donnerons la couronne, Au puîné qui plaint notre sort ». Il est difficile de dater ce document. Néanmoins, Babeuf pourrait évoquer dans cette fable la nomination de Loménie de Brienne en 1787 en qualité de Contrôleur général des finances. Ce dernier était très proche de Marie-Antoinette (elle appuya sa nomination) et Babeuf écrit : « Elle avait mis au Ministère / Un paon le plus vain des oiseaux ». Aussi, le dernier vers « Au puîne qui plaint notre sort » peut laisser penser que ce poème a été écrit avant 1792 puisque Babeuf conclut que le peuple donnera sa couronne à Louis-Stanislas-Xavier (le puîné, futur Louis XVIII). Cette conclusion assez étonnante compte tenu de la pensée babouvienne, laisse penser que ce texte a été rédigé avant la radicalisation politique du révolutionnaire. Enfin, les vers évoquant une « remontrance » et une « ambassade » peuvent-ils se rapporter aux Etats-Généraux ? Si cela était le cas, cette fable aurait été écrite autour de 1790/1791. Babeuf a été la tête pensante de la Conjuration des Égaux (1797) dont le but était de continuer la Révolution et d’aboutir à la collectivisation des terres et des moyens de production via l’abolition de la propriété privée. Arrêté en mai 1796, Gracchus Babeuf est guillotiné le 27 mai 1797. Marx et Engels ont reconnu dans la démarche de Babeuf une première manifestation historique et « agissante » d’un groupuscule communiste et dans l’homme et sa pensée, un précurseur du socialisme.

Two vols. in one, the complete run of 40 issues, 8vo., various paginations*, with a large folding plan (of a trial at Westminster Hall), a little general light foxing and some minor soiling but overall in good or very good condition in old half calf gilt over marbled boards, skilfully rebacked and labelled. An exceptionally rare provincial periodical. Crane & Kaye 1053. Times Handlist 219. NCBEL II: 1353. ESTC locates copies at Birmingham Central Libraries together with a seriously defective BL set and an imperfect set at Bournemouth (Dorset County Lib.) BUCOP also records the set at Birmingham Public Lib. Not in Union List. Not in OCLC. * Our set has been collated with great care. It runs from 10 May 1764 to 7 November 1765 (as is correct) and appears to lack a total of only 5 leaves (2 leaves from vol.I no.18, a further 2 from vol.I no.25 and the final leaf of vol.II no.15). These few faults, however, suggest that this set may be closer to completeness than any other set now extant. The Birmingham Register> was a biweekly periodical running in all to some 40 issues during its publication life. It includes essays, anecdotes, selections reprinted from other journals such as The Monitor> and the continuation of the North Briton>; with a Historical Memoir> in each issue including domestic and foreign news, prices of stocks, bankrupts; and with poetry selections. (In this set, the Historical Memoir> for each issue has been bound in sequentially in the second half of the volume).

Back smooth decorated. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Contrefaçon rare parue à la même date que l'originale, et presque en tout point conforme, et qui n'en difère que par les mentions de première et deuxième parties mentionnées aux pages de titre, ainsi que par les quatre cartons qui sont réctifiés sans repères particuliers. Cette édition n'est pas décrite par Dufour : "Recherches bibliographiques sur les oeuvres imprimées de J. J. Rousseau". Reliure en plein veau d'époque blond marbré. Dos lisse orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, et seconde pièce en maroquin havane. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Frottements. Travail de vers au mors inférieur sur 1,5cm. Bel exemplaire, bien frais. Les lettres de la montagne sont originellement une réponse aux Lettres de la campagne écrite par le procureur Tronchin de Genève, dans lesquelles celui-ci s'expliquait sur le mandat d'arrestation de Rousseau. L'auteur tout en défendant sa position, y développe deux idées essentielles, sa vision d'un christianisme éclairé, fondé sur le respect des idées évangéliques, et une notion de la liberté politique dans laquelle la souverainété de la loi est supérieure et nécessaire à la liberté des hommes, sans laquelle il n'y aurait pas de vraie liberté pour chacun et pour tous. Le livre fut condamné et par Genève et par Paris.
