"Underrättelse om barn-sjukdomar", enligt Sten Lindroth "det mest inflytelserika arbete, som någonsin utgivits av en svensk läkare", publicerades först i form av små uppsatser i Vetenskapsakademiens almanackor 1753-71. Detta är första upplagan i bokform. Lindroth skriver vidare: "Utan att bjuda på några märkliga nyheter ägde Rosensteins pediatriska handbok i fullständighet och moget omdöme ingen motsvarighet, och den anammades snabbt som klassisk utomlands; före århundradets slut var den översatt till åtta främmande språk".

[Harte, Walter]
London: Printed for W. Frederick in Bath, 1764. First edition. Original full calf, joints tender but sound, raised bands, red label, gilt lettering. Rubbed otherwise a very good clean copy of the first edition.. pp xviii, errata, Essay I: tp, 213[214] ; Essay II: 232. 5 plates, woodcuts in text. Walter Harte (1709-1774) was a friend to Alexander Pope, who approved of the book of poems that Harte published in 1727 when he was only 18 years old. He was a tutor to the Earl of Chesterfield's son and became Vice Principal of St. Mary's Hall Oxford and ,later, Canon of Windsor. His approach to agriculture although scholarly, is well rooted in the practice of his time. His "Essay on Lucerne" is of particular interest as, although it had been known since antiquity, the importance and success of lucerne as a fodder crop were just coming to light. Fussell II p. 37 calls this edition "Essays on Husbandry and Lucerne 1764" because Essay II is "An account of some Experiments tending to improve the Culture of Lucerne by transplantation: Being the First Experiments of the Kind hitherto made . . ." . Kress 6188& Perkins - see No.758 but he only describes the second edition. Kress No. 6188.

MEAD, Braddock, alias John GREEN (c.1688-1757)]
Thomas Jefferys, London 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 Geor … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHAMBARS, Thomas (1729-1789), engraver
London: Published by John Boydell, 1764. Engraving, printed on laid paper. Excellent condition. 16 7/8 x 20 7/8 inches. 19 1/4 x 25 1/2 inches. A beautifully rendered print thought to have been after a painting by Caravaggio in the Duke of Devonshire's collection. This plate is from John Boydell's "Collection of Prints, Engraved from the most Capital Paintings in England." An ambitious and voluminous work, Collection of Prints helped establish Boydell's position as one of the leading London publishers of his time. It was comprised of plates engraved by artists including Chambars, Francis Ravenet, Anthony Walker, and William Woollett after Old Master paintings in various important English collections. Although primarily sold by subscription (prestigious subscribers included the King and the Princess Dowager), individual prints were available at higher prices. The first of the publication's nine volumes was issued in 1769. One of the most influential figures in the history of English printmaking, John Boydell was instrumental in re-establishing England's flagging reputation as a creative nucleus of printmaking. He was not only an accomplished engraver and an industrious publisher, but also a print seller who came to dominate the English print trade. He is probably best known as the originator of the Shakespeare Gallery, which made him one of the most successful print-sellers of his time. Trained in Dublin and Paris, the Irish engraver Thomas Chambars (c. 1724 - 1789 (?)) was appointed an associate at the Royal Academy in 1770 and exhibited his works at the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gibbon, Edward
printed for T. Beckett and P.A. De Hondt, London. First edition in English of Gibbon's first published work, 12mo, pp. [8], 168 (including ads); contemporary full speckled calf ruled in gilt, leather spine label lettered in gilt, previous owner's name written neatly in ink on title, else a very good copy. In 1753 Gibbon, a young man of twenty-five, was sent by his father to Lausanne to study with the Calvinist minister, Pavillard, and did not return until 1758. By this time he had already begun his Essai sur l'Etude de la Litterature, which he finished in England in 1759, where it was published on the urging of his father in 1761. Published in French, the work found little audience in England but succeeded, apparently abroad, and it was reprinted in both Paris and Geneva in 1762. After its publication in English in 1764 it became highly sought after, but Gibbon refused to republish it himself. Only one other contemporary edition appeared, in 1788 in Dublin, which was pirated. Contains a touching 5-page dedication to his father. Norton 6; Rothschild 939: The translation was not made by Gibbon, though it was announced as being prepared "under the inspection of the author" (Norton, p. 4).

Amsterdam, 1764. 8vo. Two very nice cont. uniform red hcalfs; gilt backs w. gilt black leather title-labels. All edges uncut. Minor repairs to upper part of back of vol. one. In very good condition. Some of the text-leaves of the last section of the second volumes are evenly browned, and a few of the last leaves are professionally repaired, otherwise only occasional brownspotting to a few leaves. Nicely printed on good paper. Richly and beautifully illustrated w. the engr. portrait of La Fontaine, engr. frontisp. in both volumes, engr. title-vignettes, engr. preliminary vignette-leaves, 77 full-page engr. plates and 63 engr. text-vignettes. I.e. in all 80 engr. plates, 67 engr. vignettes and two woodcut vignettes (in the table of contents). ¶ This rare and very beautiful Amsterdam edition is printed two years after the monumental first edition from Paris, which was commissioned by Ferniers Géneraux, and which is very scarce and sought after. This is the most beautiful and well-executed of the re-impressions (Paris, 1762 (-without vignettes), Amsterdam, 1764 and London, 1764). -"Celle d'Amsterdam, 1764, 2 vol. in-8. fig. copiées sur celles de l'édition de 1762, est assez belle..." (Brunet III:760). The illustrations of this edition are excellent and copied from the beautiful first edition; many of them are engraved and signed by C. Boily, and all are after Eisen. Most of the vignettes are after Choffard. The portrait of La Fontaine is engraved by Macret after Ficquet. "Cette imitation de l'édition des fermiers généraux est assez jolie. Le portrait de La Fontaine est tantôt g … [Click Below for Full Description]

1764. 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 tres estime"; Nissen BBI, 1156..

Galloway, Joseph:
London: W. Nicoll, [1764].. [2],92pp. 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. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 64-8b. FORD, FRANKLIN 282. SABIN 26445. ANB 8, pp.657-59 (Galloway). HOWES G50.

Artois Flanders Belgium Belge Belgique: (1764). 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 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 presen … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: J. Dodsley, 1764. Scare first edition of this document relating to the British occupation of Manila during the Anglo-Spanish War of 1762-3, and an interesting case of international law. In September of 1762, under the command of Draper and Cornish, a British fleet of 13 ships containing over 6000 men attacked Manila and, following a difficult landing, quickly dispatched the Spanish garrison which they outnumbered 10 to 1.They entered the city on October 5, and part of the terms of capitulation was that Spain would pay the British an indemnity of 4 million pesos (roughly a million pounds) for not pillaging the city. The British evacuated in 1764 when hostilities ceased, and Draper enjoyed the highly unusual privilege of presenting the standards of Spain taken in Manila to his alma mater, King’s College Cambridge. But the Spanish did not honor this gentleman’s agreement, claiming that Draper dealt with an unauthorized agent, that he himself broke the terms of the agreement, etc. In order to press his claim, which amounted to £25,000, he published the present tract to pressure his government to collect. The tract contains a brief letter to the British Secretary of State outlining his grievance; a bilingual summary, in English and French, of the Spanish ambassador’s grounds for not complying with the terms of the agreement; extracts from the treaty; a refutation by Draper of the claim that he dealt with an unauthorized agent; and an English language treaty signed by the original parties, in Manila. But with hostilities over and their attention occupied by other … [Click Below for Full Description]
