        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.

      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.

      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.

      London, 1764. Modern three-quarter calf over marbled boards by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spine gilt. Titlepage slightly soiled. A very good plus copy. The first London edition of Joseph Galloway's speech in the Pennsylvania House of Assembly, printed the same year as the first Philadelphia edition. (Although the titlepage is dated 1765 in roman numerals, Adams indicates a 1764 printing in his AMERICAN CONTROVERSY.) 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 that representative body for a petition to King George III pleading that the proprietary governors of Pennsylvania be replaced by direct royal government. Galloway would eventually become the most prominent American Loyalist during the Revolution. John Dickinson, whose speech prompted this response from Galloway, later wrote LETTERS FROM A FARMER IN PENNSYLVANIA..., the most important document of the Stamp Act crisis. The 'Preface' on pages 3-43 was written by Franklin and is a very bitter attack on the Penns and their supporters.

        Portrait of Friedrich von GENTZ (1764-1832).

      - Of great historical importance – the earliest known portrait of Friedrich von Gentz, one of the central figures of the Vienna Conference of 1814-1815. This large, unsigned early 19th Century portrait depicts a man in his forties, seated at a table which is covered with newspapers from across the Habsburg Empire: the Lembacher Zeitung, Pressburger Zeitung, Wiener Zeitung and issue no.42 of the Klagenfurter Zeitung, featuring the partial date of "19th. 1813", along a letter from the Emperor authorizing an honorarium of 2,000 guilders. These details are all clues as to the identity of the subject of the portrait. An analysis of the painting clearly shows that the subject is Friedrich von Gentz, the highly consequential Austrian writer, statesman, journalist and the right hand man of Prince Klemens Wenzel von Metternich, Fürst von Metternich-Winneburg zu Beilstein, who served as both the foreign minister and later as the First State Chancellor of the Austrian Empire. Friedrich von Gentz was born in 1764 to a middle class Prussian family in Breslau, Prussian Silesia (today Wroc?aw, Poland). After studies in Berlin and Königsberg, he entered the civil service of the Prussian Court. His fierce intelligence and superlative writing skills soon compensated for his modest background, and he was appointed to the rank of councillor for war. Gentz became internationally known for his publications during and after the French Revolution. In 1799, he founded the Historisches Journal, based on well-regarded English media models. From 1801, he published insightful political essays in the Beiträge zur Geschichte. His writing highly impressed English and Austrian politicians, yet his opinionated viewpoints were less appreciated in the highly censored environment of Prussia. In 1802, Gentz left for Vienna where he took up writing for the Austrian government. While his work was technically propaganda, his meticulous research, attention to detail and fluid prose added great credibility to the official line. Within a couple of years he became an irreplaceable consigliore to the Habsburg regime. In particular, Gentz produced innumerable witty invectives against Napoleon Bonaparte. His work did not escape the attention of the French emperor, who described Gentz as a "wretched scribe . one of those men without honour who sell themselves for money". In 1809, Gentz wrote the draft for the official Austrian proclamation declaring war on France. In 1812, when Klemens von Metternich was appointed Austrian Foreign Minister, Gentz was immediately selected to be his executive assistant, secretary and his ‘ghost writer’. In 1813, Gentz was named a ‘Hofrath’, a court advisor, an unusual honour for a foreigner of modest background. In 1814, Metternich appointed Gentz to become the Secretary of the Congress of Vienna (1814-1815), the conference that was convened by all of the major European powers to bring the Napoleonic Wars to a close. With this, he became the orchestrator of what was one of the most consequential diplomatic events in history. For the remainder of his life, Gentz accompanied the brilliant, yet mischievous, Metternich to all of the important conferences in Europe, and in his own right he became one of the most powerful and respected figures of the Habsburg Empire. Evidence strongly suggests that Gentz sat for the present portrait while he was stationed in Prague, during the second-half of 1813. Gentz was in the city to attend the peace conference, held between July 12 and August 10, 1813, convened in an effort to avoid a renewal of the conflict between France and Austria. The deliberations were not successful and Austria declared war upon France on August 12, 1813. Gentz elected to remain in Prague for some months in order to be nearer to the military action, which was largely playing out in what is now eastern Germany. This renewal of the conflict ended with Napoleon’s crushing defeat at the Battle of Leipzig on October 19, 1813. During this perio

        Hans Veit Schnorr von Carolsfeld(1764-1841). Porträt Anton Ernst Klausing

      - Hans Veit Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1764 Schneeberg (Sachsen)-Leipzig 1841). Porträt des Altertumsforschers Anton Ernst Klausing (1729-1803). 1797 . Radierung auf Papier, Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert. -- Beschreibung: -- Radierung auf Papier, Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert. oben in der Druckplatte bezeichnet: "Anton Ernst Klausing Professor der Alterthümer u. Philosophie zu Leipzig.", unten vom Künstler signiert und datiert: "Schnorr v. Kxxx pinx. et fe. 1797. No 89", darunter: "Meinem Freunde unten: Lehrer C. C. H. Rost.". -- Größe/Size: -- Papiermaß: 25,6 x 19,5 cm. -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt gut, im Rand leicht fleckig. -- Weitere Beschreibung: -- Dargestellt ist der Altertumsforscher Anton Ernst Klausing (1729-1803), der seit 1763 Professor der geistlichen Altertümer in Leipzig war. Zuvor hatte er sich als Sprachlehrer in Venedig und als Übersetzer historischer Schriften aus dem Englischen betätigt. Bekannt war seine griechische und römische Götterlehre, [Versuch einer mythologischen Dactyliothec für Schulen. Oder Einleitung in die griechische und römische Götterlehre zur Erläuterung der classischen Schriftsteller, und Denkmäler der Kunst auf antiken geschnittenen Steinen. Leipzig 1781.] die 1781 bei Carl Christian Heinrich Rost in Leipzig erschien. Diesem wiederum ist das Bildnis des Gelehrten gewidmet, das der ebenfalls in Leipzig tätige Schnorr von Carolsfeld angefertigt hat. Rost, der von 1742-1898 lebte, war Kaufmann und Kunsthändler und handelte unter anderem mit Gipsabgüssen eigener Produktion nach antiken Plastiken. An diesen Abgüssen hat Schnorr, der lange zwischen Jura und Kunst geschwankt hatte, seine Kenntnis der antiken Kunst erweitert. Er hat sie auch in Radierungen festgehalten und veröffentlicht. Wenn dem Verleger Rost das Blatt nicht nur als Freund sondern zugleich als Lehrer gewidmet ist, verdeutlicht dies die große Wertschätzung, die Schnorr auch den kunsttheoretischen Schriften Rosts, die heute kaum mehr bekannt sind, entgegenbrachte. [Rost bearbeitete beispielsweise die ersten 5 Bände der deutschen Übersetzung von Michael Hubers "Handbuch fuer Kunstliebhaber und Sammler ueber die vornehmsten Kupferstecher und ihre Werke".] Die ungewöhnliche, an antike Gemmen erinnernde reliefartige Darstellung der Putti, die einen Palmbaum pflanzen, ist nicht nur als sprechendes Attribut für den porträtierten Altertumsforscher zu verstehen, sondern greift weiter: Im Bekenntnis zum antiken Humanismus, in der Idee einer lebendigen Kulturtradition, symbolisiert durch den immergrünenden Palmbaum, kommen alle Drei - der Dargestellte, der Künstler und der Empfänger des Blattes - zu einem imaginären Bund zusammen.

      Boston: Thomas & John Fleet, 1764, 1767, 1769.. [4],iv,566; [4],iv,539; [2],ii,576pp. plus later wood- engraved frontispiece of "Hutchinson House." Antique-style half calf and marbled boards, spines gilt with leather labels. Titlepage of second volume with some slight loss, affecting several letters, neatly repaired; titlepage of third volume with minor loss of blank corner, neatly repaired. Minor foxing and toning. Very good. The first edition of this classic Massachusetts history, published in three separate volumes. The first volume discusses the early years of the colony from first settlement in 1628 until 1691. The second volume covers Massachusetts from the 1691 charter until 1750, and includes an index to both volumes. The third volume was published by Hutchinson to support and elucidate the principal facts related in the first two volumes of the History of Massachusetts Bay, and may serve as an appendix to it. According to Sabin, this third volume is "a necessary adjunct to Hutchinson's HISTORY." "Hutchinson's HISTORY OF MASSACHUSETTS-BAY accurately recounted these events and contained sympathetic accounts of Puritanism; the Antinomian heresy of Hutchinson's ancestor, Anne Hutchinson; and Massachusetts opposition in the 1680s to the 'tyrannical disposition' of the royalist governor, Sir Edmund Andros, and his administration's 'harpies.' Hutchinson's HISTORY acknowledged the multiplicity of jostling interest groups in Massachusetts and the duty of government to protect the public interest from the demands of self-interested groups" - ANB. ^Hutchinson (1711-80), besides being a colonial historian, was governor of Massachusetts from 1771 to 1773 and a staunch Loyalist. He left Boston for London in late 1773, after he had helped cause the Boston Tea Party, and remained in exile in England until his death in 1780. The first two volumes of Hutchinson's work on the Massachusetts colony are complete unto themselves, but the third volume acts as a valuable appendix. Each volume is rare; rarer still to find both together. An important and early colonial history. HOWES H853. EVANS 9705, 10658, 11300. ESTC W20456, W20464, W31190. SABIN 34075, 34078, 34069.

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."

        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).

T.VI et VII: L'Homme en Société. T.VIII: L'Homme en Société avec Dieu, Première partie et seconde partie. L'illustration comporte 212 planches gravées par Le Bas (y compris les 9 frontispices), dont 166 dépliantes. Notons que deux planches figurent en double, en remplacement de figures manquant sans doute chez l'éditeur: celle de l'éléphant (T. I p. 232) qui remplace la moule (!), et celle du sapin et de l'if (T.II p.450) qui remplace l'érable. Reliure d'époque en veau marbré, dos lisse ornés, pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge, gardes marbrées, tranches rouges, coupes ornées. Quatre coiffes supérieures élimées, accroc à une autre, quelques petits trous de vers superficiels aux plats, mais généralement un joli exemplaire très frais. Inquiété pour ses relations avec les Jansénistes, Pluche (1688-1761) passa la première partie de sa vie réfugié en Normandie sous le nom d'Abbé Noël. Précepteur des enfants d'une riche famille anglaise installée à Rouen (Lord Stafford), ses leçons d'histoire naturelle servirent de fondement au Spectacle de la Nature, publié de 1732 à 1750. Rassemblant les principales connaissances scientifiques du temps (sciences naturelles, physique, astronomie?), l'ouvrage eut un succès énorme en France (où l'on recense pas moins de 57 éditions), en Angleterre et dans divers pays d'Europe, et joua un rôle important dans l'éducation des familles aisées du 18ème siècle.

      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.
