        1764 - 1767 ARCHIVE OF HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT REPORTS DETAILING STATUS AND ACCOUNTING OF HOSPITALS FOR 'LES COMTE DES FLANDRES ET D'ARTOI'

      Artois Flanders Belgium Belge Belgique 1764 - On offer is an archive of French language handwritten manuscript papers penned by Dr. S. Brunes between the years 1764 - 1767. Dr. Brunes provides a study and accounting of several hospitals in the counties of 'les comte des Flandres et d'Artoi". Also included is a more personal letter which acts as an overview of the report proper. This is a very detailed, very well written account in a beautiful hand. In total nine handwritten pages over 12 leaves. Provenance: collection of SIR THOMAS PHILLIPPS (1792-1872). Born in 1792, Sir Thomas Phillipps from childhood was obsessed with the idea of obtaining virtually anything written or printed on paper, including cartloads of documents from wastepaper merchants and the entire inventories of booksellers. "I wish to have one copy of every book in the world," he declared to a friend. He very nearly succeeded. His collection ultimately grew to more than 100,000 books and at least 60,000 manuscripts. As a result of his extravagant purchases, Sir Thomas was permanently on the verge of bankruptcy and was constantly pursued by creditors. So many books arrived at his house that it was impossible to unpack his acquisitions much less keep pace with them. Visiting scholars, driven to distraction, would spend days hunting for an elusive text in the dusty heaps that filled every room. Because Sir Thomas has a morbid dread of fire, most of his collection was housed in coffinlike boxes that could be carted away quickly. Visitors to Middle Hill were struck too, by the presence of numerous logs, a ploy he used to lure beetles away from his books. As Sir Thomas relentlessly pursued his passion, the house itself began to crumble and its floors started to sag under the cast weight of hundreds of tons of paper. His neglect of Middle Hill was partly deliberate, however. Sir Thomas's chief enemy in life, James Halliwell, had married his daughter against his wishes. It appears that Halliwell was, in Sir Thomas' eyes, the worst kind of criminal, a book thief who had stolen valuable works from university libraries and even from his father-in-law. Having no sons, Sir Thomas was unable to prevent Halliwell from inheriting his estate. To ensure that his detested heir would never receive anything of value, Sir Thomas's solution was to allow Middle Hill to fall unto complete disrepair. He even went so far as to chop down and sell for lumber the centuries-old oak trees that lined the majestic mile-long drive to his home. In 1863 Sir Thomas decided to move - in order to accommodate his books. With the aid of 160 men, 103 wagonloads of books and papers drawn by 230 horses, the books were lumbered from Middle Hill top their new estate in nearby Cheltenham. It is said that for years afterwards the countryside was littered with the remains of carts that had collapsed under the sheer weight of the Phillipps collection. Sir Thomas continues to add to his library until his death in 1872. After Sir Thomas's death, his immediate family had no room for his collection. So vast was the library that although individual items and large sections were sold privately or through numerous auction sales, the Phillipps collection is still being sold more than a century after the death of its owner. In the course of its sales, many treasures have come to light. As late as 1964, part of the long-lost and unique medieval manuscript of the Roman poet Ovid's Metamorphoses appeared and was subsequently reunited with its other half at Magdalen College, Oxford. Once destined for destruction as worthless wastepaper, this and many other priceless works were saved by the single-minded obsession of the greatest bibliomaniac of all time. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        An Improved Map of thecCounty of Stafford, divided into its Hundreds

      c 1764. Copperplate engraving with original outline colour. Mounted size: 885 × 705 mm. Very good condition. A wonderfully precise, detailed and informative large map of Staffordshire; from 'The Large English Atlas' ; arguably the finest English atlas produced in the eighteenth century. Emanuel Bowen and Thomas Kitchin were prolific and highly respected cartographers, however, this collaboration was not without its difficulties; ownership of the particular project changed many times, therefore the maps are found to have various imprints. This map carries the imprint of Robert Sayer, John Bowles and Carrington Bowles. In addition to being on a grand scale, the maps carry a wealth of valuable county information concerning the Seats of the Nobility, geographical and political information, and major market towns and cities.

        Amusement Microscopique tant pour l'esprit, que pour les yeux; contenant cinquante estampes [deuxième cinquantaine & troisième cinquantaine] dessinées d'après nature et enluminées, avec leurs explications.

      Nuremberg, Adam Wolfgang Winterschmidt, 1764-1768. 3 volumes. 4to (265 x 215mm). With 1 fine handcoloured allegorical frontispiece and 150 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Later half vellum. The rare French edition of probably the most beautifully illustrated work on microscopical research. Martin Frobenius Ledermüller (1719-1769) settled down in Nuremberg in 1749, after having been wandering about for many years as a soldier and a secretary, and started his valuable microscopical observations under the protection and direction of the famous Dr. C.J. Trew. The publication of the results, with the finely engraved and coloured plates by the successful Adam Wolfgang Winterschmidt, met with close attention and interest, and for years to come the "Mikroskopieren" was a fashionable pastime for many of the well-to-do classes. The work describes and illustrates a wide range of objects: parts of plants and insects, small shells, plancton, the crystallization of salts in solution etc. The author was the first to use the term 'infusoria'. A fine uncut copy.//Graesse IV, 139; Brunet III, 919: "Ouvrage très estimé"; Nissen BBI, 1156.

        L'Eleve de la Nature

      Paris: Panckouke, 1764. Two volumes in one, duodecimo, a very good copy in modern boards, red morocco label. Robinsoade, with a return to nature theme derived from Rousseau. Second edition of Beaurieu's most successful work: a Robinsonade and educational novel describing a return to nature. Beaurieu (1728-1795) was a celebrated figure in eighteenth century Paris, known as much for his flamboyant and bizarre dress as for his writings. This novel{i }is modelled closely on Rousseau's {i Emile} (1762), so much so that some later editions were attributed to Rousseau himself. Rousseau had argued for a less authoritarian model of education, and one in which the student learns from 'nature and not from men.' Beaurieu's romance, like {i Emile}, shows a fascination with Robinson Crusoe and takes his capacity to adapt through adversity and to learn from nature as a model for a new pedagogy. Thus, the novel strongly condemns the artificiality of luxury and slavery, and supports a return to agriculture as the basis for an apparently utopian society. Very popular at the time of its publication - Gove lists seventeen editions and translations before 1800 - later critical attention has perhaps not been quite so positive. Gove says acidly 'it was once foisted upon Rousseau'; the {i Nouvelle Biographie Générale} is a little more composed: 'le cadre en est ingénieux, mais il n'est pas toujours bien rempli'.

A successful merchant and politician, Hutchinson was active at high levels of the Massachusetts government for many years, serving as lieutenant governor and then governor from 1758 to 1774. <br> He was a politically polarizing figure who, despite initial opposition to Parliamentary tax laws directed at the colonies, came to be identified by John Adams and Samuel Adams as a proponent of hated British taxes. He was blamed by Lord North (the British Prime Minister at the time) for being a significant contributor to the tensions that led the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. <Br>Hutchinson had a deep interest in colonial history, collecting a large number of historical documents. He wrote a three volume History of the Province of Massachusetts Bay, whose last volume, published posthumously, covered his own period in office.

        1764 New York Bill of Sale for 20-year old Caesar

      Dutchess Co., NY 1764 - Manuscript Document Signed by Theodorus VanWyck, Theodorus VanWyck, Jr., and Thomas Langdon [Jr.], March 5, 1764, Dutchess Co., NY, wherein Theodorus and William VanWyck, executors of the Last Will & Testament of Thomas Langdon, Sr., deceased, sell to Joseph Horton "one Negro Boy Named Ceesar [sic] aged Twenty years," for "one Hundred and Twenty pounds Current Money of New York." 1 p. 7 1/4 x 11 7/8 in. Historical BackgroundThomas Langdon, Sr. was a son of Thomas Langdon, who died in Jerusalem, Hempstead, Long Island, in 1734. Thomas married in the Reformed Dutch Church at Fishkill, October, 20, 1734, Peternella/Neeltje (Davidts), daughter of Andries & Cornelia (Van Vliet) Davidts. In March of 1757, he marched as Captain Langdon of militia to Albany when Fort William Henry was attacked. He was a resident of Fishkill and Hopewell, NY. Thomas Langdon, Jr., (1741-1784) who signs this document as a witness, married in 1766, Femmetje/Phebe (Adriance), daughter of Abraham & Aeltje (Brinckerhoff) Adriance. He was a Loyalist during the Revolution.Joseph Horton's 1752 home in Wappinger Falls, NY, known as the "Old Hundred," is on the historic register.Slavery in New York:Systematic use of black slaves in New Netherland began in 1626, when the first cargo of 11 Africans was unloaded by the Dutch West India Company. From the 1630s to the 1650s, the Company was unquestionably the dominant European slave trader in Africa. In 1644 alone, it bought 6,900 captives on the African coast. Most of these went to the company's colonies in the West Indies, but from its stations in Angola, the company imported slaves to New Netherland to clear the forests, lay roads, build houses and public buildings, and grow food. It was company-owned slave labor that laid the foundations of modern New York, built its fortifications, and made agriculture flourish in the colony so that later white immigrants had an incentive to turn from fur trapping to farming.Between 1636 and 1646 the price of able-bodied men in New Netherland rose about 300 percent. By 1660, slaves from Angola were selling for 300 guilders and those from Curaao for about 100 guilders more. By the time the British took over the colony in 1664, slaves sold in New Amsterdam for up to 600 guilders. This was still a discount of roughly 10 percent over what they would have brought in the plantation colonies, but the West India Company had been subsidizing slavery in New Netherland to promote its economic progress. The Hudson Valley, where the land was monopolized in huge patroon estates that discouraged free immigration, especially relied on slaves.The purely economic status of slaves in New Netherland contrasted with the malignant and sometimes bizarre racism of the religious British citizens who followed the Dutch into the north Atlantic colonies. Free blacks in New Netherland were trusted to serve in the militias, and slaves, given arms, helped to defend the settlement during the desperate Indian war of 1641-44. They were even used to put down the Rensselaerswyck revolt of white tenants. Blacks and whites had coequal standing in the colonial courts, and free blacks were allowed to own property. They intermarried freely with whites and in some cases owned white indentured servants.Slaves who had worked diligently for the company for a certain length of time were granted a "half-freedom" that allowed them liberty in exchange for an annual tribute to the company and a promise to work at certain times on company projects such as fortifications or public works. This allowed individual slaveowners to be free of the cost and nuisance of owning slaves year-round that they could only use in certain seasons.The takeover of New Amsterdam by England in 1664, brought a shift in policy: whereas the Dutch had used slavery as part of their colonial policy, the British used the colony as a market for slaves. From 1701 to 1726, officially, some 1,570 slaves were imported from th. (See website for full description)
