Baader, Joseph Ritter von:
. . Einzige Ausgabe (gedruckt in 800 Exemplaren). - Sehr frühe deutsche Eisenbahnschrift des bayerischen Mechanikers J. von Baader (1764-1835), der als einer der ersten Deutschen die Eisenbahn propagiert hat. Er hatte während seiner ersten Englandaufenthaltes von 1787 bis 1795 die dortigen Bahnen eingehend studiert u. sein Wissen auf einer zweiten Reise im Jahr 1815 vertieft u. durch die neuesten Erkenntnisse erweitert. Seine eigenen Verbesserungsvorschläge fließen in die vorliegende Arbeit ein. Sie beruhen größtenteils auf den Versuchen, die er 1825 und 1826 auf einer 250 m langen Versuchsstrecke im Nymphenburger Schloßpark mit eigenen Wagen angestellt hatte. Wichtig sind deshalb vor allem auch die im Anhang enthaltenen 3 Protokolle, die die Urteile unabhängiger Fachleute wiedergeben. Deutinger: Bayerns Weg zur Eisenbahn S. 58 (Auflagenhöhe) u. S. 300. - Engelmann S. 20. - Preuß/Preuß: Lex. Eisenbahn S. 24f. - Ottley 265 ("Railway experiments in England discussed, including Palmer's Suspension Railway."). - Röll² I, S. 344. - Matschoss S. 10. - Hoeltzel S. 49. - Gering stockfleckig.

G., F. C. v(on?).;
Prag, Lochner und Mayer 1764;. Einzige Auflage. Folio; (6) 500 (18) Seiten; Pbd d. Zt. mit hs-R'titel (geringfügig fleckig, breitrandiges unbeschnittenes Exemplar); Einzige Auflage.. Lindner 11.0677.01. Lindner schreibt das sehr seltene Werk einem böhmischen Adeligen zu. Vieles spricht allerdings für einen Forstbeamten, z. B. daß er aus eigener Erfahrung schreibt, wie er im Vorwort erwähnt. Ebenso hört sich die untertänigste Dedikation an den Prager Adel eher nach einem Bediensteten als nach einen Adeligen an.

Gedney Clarke (Jr.) - American Plantation Owner in West Indies
London: , 1764. London, 1764. ALS written by a prominent American plantation owner in the Dutch Colony of Berbice, to Dutch nobility, discloses paramount concerns regarding the leadership and economic progress of the slave-dependent colony. The author, slave trader and plantation owner Gedney Clarke (Jr.) who was also affiliated with the Dutch West India Company, addresses nobleman and politician Count de Bentinck of Holland, and mentions other key administrators of this and neighbouring Dutch plantation colonies. 8vo. 4 pages on two single-leafs, laid watermarked paper measuring approximately 7 x 9 inches. Very good, original condition document with significant content. The letter is contemporary to the Berbice Slave Uprising, a major event in Guyana's anti-colonial struggles, which began on 23 February 1763, and continued for almost a full year into 1764. On that February day, Plantation Magdalenenberg on the Canje River in Berbice experienced a rebellion by their slaves in protest of harsh and inhumane treatment. They torched the plantation house, then went to other plantations to mobilize other enslaved Africans to join the rebellion. Cuffy, a house slave at Lilienburg, another plantation on Canje, is said to have organized them into a military unit. As plantation after plantation fell to the slaves, the Dutch settlers fled northward and the rebels began to take over control of the region. For almost a year, the rebels held on to southern Berbice, while the whites were able to hold on to the north. Eventually only about half of the white population that had lived … [Click Below for Full Description]

A. S. Mg le duc de virtemberg composeront la somme de deux mille livre dont son S. A. S. doit me constituer les rentes viageres dont nous sommes convenus [...]". - Charles-Eugene, duc de Wurtemberg et comte de Montbeliard, constamment endette, faisait des emprunts aupres de personnages complaisants. Voltaire, bon courtisan mais aussi philosophe et fort avise en affaires, lui fit un pret d'argent considerable. Charles-Eugene ne pouvant honorer ses dettes, faillit bien lui offrir le chateau de Montbeliard en compensation. Voltaire mourut en 1778 avant que le prince ne puisse eponger le reliquat de ses dettes. - Un peu tache et avec des dechirures aux marges et au pli.

Rare premiere edition francaise de 'The Theory of Moral Sentiments' et premiere apparition d'un texte d'Adam Smith en francais. C'est le baron d'Holbach qui conseilla a Marc-Antoine Eidous, ami de Diderot, traducteur et encyclopediste, de se charger de cette traduction. Hume, qui residait a Paris, prevint Smith qui recommanda de se baser sur la seconde edition (1761) de son ouvrage. Finalement publiee en 1764 chez Briasson, l'un des principaux editeurs de l'Encyclopedie, l'oeuvre ne rencontra pas le succes public escompte et le livre fut diffuse confidentiellement. Il fallut attendre dix annees (1774) pour qu'une seconde traduction voie le jour (cf G. Faccarello & P. Steiner, 'La diffusion de l'oeuvre d'Adam Smith en langue francaise').

This is a pretty copy of the first appearance in English of an Enlightenment-era examination of the roots of despotism, a work that denounces religion and theocracy as key elements in tyrannical rule. As stated on the title page and in the text, "this theologico-political [work] is calculated for an introduction and key to Montesquieu's 'Spirit of laws,'" a treatise primarily concerned with the separation of powers. However, Boulanger and Montesquieu disagreed on a key point. Montesquieu saw religion, specifically Islam, as the potential ally of a despot, but he … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philip B. Gove, in Notes on Serialization and Competitive Publishing: Johnson's and Bailey's Dictionaries, 1755, Oxford Bib. Soc., 1955 notes: ""The attempt of the Bailey proprietors to enter a folio to rival Johnson's great Dictionary remained alive through 1772, three years after Scott's death. The dates of the new title-pages, 1764 and 1772, precede respectively by one year those of the third and fourth editions of Johnson."" & & See Starnes & Noyes, chapt.

Intéressant recueil réunissant quelques-uns des principaux ouvrages publiés autour de la rupture de Hume et de Rousseau. Ce dernier, poursuivi par la censure sur le continent, était venu s'installer en Angleterre à l'invitation du célèbre philosophe écossais mais la discorde n'avait pas tardé à naître entre les deux hommes. 1). Edition Originale, publiée en français par Suard d'après le manuscrit anglais de Hume. L'édition anglaise "retraduite" du français, parut quelques mois plus tard. Cet ouvrage de Hume contient la version du philosophe écossais sur sa brouille avec Rousseau. Excédé et blessé par la conduite de Rousseau, Hume laissa publier ce texte afin de mettre sous les yeux du public tous les éléments du dossier et résolut de ne plus répondre aux attaques de Rousseau. Ce volume contient les lettres de Rousseau à Hume, les réponses de celui-ci, les lettres de Rousseau à Clairault, au St. James Chronicle, au Général Conway, la Déclaration adressée par D'Alembert aux Editeurs, etc. 2).

Rouppe travelled much in the West-Indies as a naval physician for the Dutch West Indische Companie. The text is based on author's own observations and experiences, including sanitation and sanitary measures, venereal diseases, fevers, cancers etc. An important part (pp. 90-212) deals with scurvy. One of the last parts, "de morbus in portubus" is of particularly interest. This work is often considered the best 18th century treatise on naval medicine, and was translated into English and German. -- (Owing to the quality of the paper, text lightly browned as in all copies.

ABOT DE BAZINGHEN (Francois Andre)
A Paris Chez Guillyn, 1764. FIRST EDITION. 2 volumes. 4to, 272 x 185 mms., pp. [ii], xvi, 691 [692 blank]; [ii], 710, [2], xxiv, 34 [35 - 36 Approbation], 29 folding tables, early reback in quarter sheepskin, morocco labels, marbled boards (rubbed), uncut; some soiling of edges, but generally a good to very good copy, with the armorial bookplate of Henry N. Sealy on the front paste-down end-paper of each vlume and is autograph on the upper margin of the title-page of each volume. Sealy was the author of A Treatise on Coins, Currency, and Banking: With Observations on the Bank act of 1844 and on the Reports of the Committees of the House of Lords and of the House of Commons on the Bank Acts (1858), so this seems to be a useful book for him to have had in his library. Abot de Bazinghen (1711 - 1791) discusses the history of coins and coinage from its beginnings up to the first quarter of the 18th century. The emphasis is, of course, upon French coins, but he also gives some account in Asia and Africa. Germain Garnier, in his edition of the Wealth of Nations, vol. v., p. 234, says the book "n'est guère qu'une compilation faite sans soin et sans discernment," and explains that the mint price remained in force a very short time. It having failed to bring bullion to the mint, much higher prices were successively offered, and when the Wealth of Nations was published the seignorage only amounted to about 3 per cent. On the silver coin it was then about 2 per cent., in place of the 6 per cent. stated by Bazinghen, p. 590. Graesse 315, Kress Lib 5161, Goldsmith Lib. 9994.
