Glocester, R. Raikes for Thomas Jeffrys, 1764, First English language edition. Quarto (27 cm); [8], vii, [8]-280, [8] pages, [8] leaves of plates (some folded) : illustrations, maps. Bound in full speckled calf outlined in gilt; red title label titled in gilt; spine in six compartments defined in gilt. Fore-edge stained red, faded. Joints and hinges reinforced, corner and edges renewed. Old commercial marks in pencil on front pastedown, along with old printed catalog entry. Old tears at corners of folding maps admirably repaired. Occasional paper blemishes; closed tear at S2; light even toning throughout. A very good copy! References: Arctic Bib. 9264; Sabin 38301; Tourville 2532; Howes K-265. ¶ The first English edition of Krasheninnikov's 1755 scientific description of Kamchatka, largely based on the notes of Georg Steller. Krasheninnikov abandoned the Great Northern Expedition to avoid becoming Steller's assistant, but was able to make use of his notes for this first scientific account of Bering's expedition to Alaska. Steller survived the shipwreck and scurvy that killed Bering and most of the crew, and continued to explore and document Kamchatka for several years, giving his name to a variety of newly discovered Arctic fauna and describing the native people of the region.

EON (de Beaumont, Chevalier) et F.J. CADART
à La Haye, imprimé chez H. Scheurleer, se vend à Francfort, chez les frères Van Dures, à Londres, chez Jacques Dixwell, 1764, 3 parties in 4°, de 1f. XXXVI- 1f., 202pp. un tableau se dépl., & 1f. 75pp., & 1f. 59pp., pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné, bel exemplaire (ex-libris gravé XIXe Comte Regnault de Beaucaron) Edition originale ici dans le rare tirage de luxe in 4°, sur vélin fort. Témoignage d'importance sur la diplomatie secrète de Louis XV. L'espion Charles d'Eon de Beaumont fut en effet, un des membres du "secret du Roi". Il est resté célèbre pour ses travestissements. Il raconte dans ses Mémoires avoir été « lectrice » de la Tsarine sous le nom de Lia de Beaumont. D'ailleurs Louis XVI le contraindra à reprendre"les habits de son sexe" s'il désire revenir en France pour y obtenir une rente. Habillée par Rose Bertin aux frais de Marie-Antoinette, il est présenté à la Cour en robe à panier et corset le 23 novembre 1777. En 1785 il regagne Londres, pour y finir misérablement sa vie sous les habits féminins, à l'âge de 82 ans. Sous la Révolution il avait proposé, sans succès, à l'Assemblée Nationale de conduire une unité "d'Amazones". En 1810 l'examen du corps par le légiste révèlera des "organes mâles de la génération parfaitement formés sous tous les rapports". A partir des années 1950, des études se penchent sur le "problème psychosexuel" du chevalier-chevalière, un traité allant même jusqu'à examiner "l'éonisme ou l'inversion esthético-sexuelle". ¶ Quérard Fr. litt.

Bayes, Thomas
London: L. Davis and C. Reymers, 1764. First edition. FIRST EDITION of Thomas Bayes's extremely influential work on the concept of "inverse probability", the basis of modern statistical inference.
. ''Bayes, a Nonconformist minister, published only two works during his lifetime: Divine Benefits (1731), a religious treatise; and Introduction to the Doctrine of Fluxions (1736), in which he responded to Bishop Berkeley's attack on the logical foundations of Newton's calculus. For the latter work he was elected a member of the Royal Society in 1742. In 1763, two years after Bayes's death, Richard Price, a fellow Non­conformist minister, economist, and actuary to whom Bayes had bequeathed his papers, found Bayes's Essay and submitted it to the Royal Society for publication. The arguments in Bayes's paper were adopted by Laplace, who saw in them the basis for statistical inference; they were later challenged by George Boole in his Laws of Thought. "Bayes's Essay contains the first statement of Bayes's Theorem for calculating 'inverse probabilities', which forms the basis for methods of decision analysis, statistical learning machines, and Bayesian networks. Bayesian networks are complex diagrams that organise the body of knowledge in any given area by mapping out cause-and­-effect relationships among key variables and encoding them with numbers that represent the extent to which one variable is likely to affect another. Programmed into computers, these systems can automatically generate optimal predictions or decisions even when key pieces of information are missing. Bayesian or … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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..."

LEDERMÜLLER, M.F.
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'. Our copy does not have the supplement of 23 pages and 2 plates "Response... à quelques obiections et doutes... par le Baron de Gleichen" a supplement which is lacking in most copies and not listed by Nissen.//A fine uncut copy.//Graesse IV, 139; Brunet III, 919: "Ouvrage très estimé"; Nissen BBI, 1156.

[Verri, Pietro (ed.)].
Large 4to. 4 parts in 2 vols., bound in one. 288 pp. 287, (1) pp. Printed in double columns. Contemporary green half calf over marbled boards with giltstamped title to spine. Third collected edition of a principal journal of the Italian enlightenment, "The Coffeehouse", modelled on the English periodical "The Spectator". It was published by the "Società dei pugni" (Society of Fists), members of which included the Milanese brothers Pietro (1728-97) and Alessandro Verri (1741-1816), the philosopher Cesare Beccaria (1738-94) and the mathematician Paolo Frisi (1728-84). Covering a large range of subjects, the journal's emphasis was on economics and public policy. It did not enjoy a long life: the first issue appeared in June 1764 (at Brescia to avoid censorship), the last in May 1766. The first collected edition appeared as early as 1765-66 in Brescia, and a second one in Venice in 1766. In 1764, the year that "Dei delitti e delle pene" was published, Beccaria contributed to one of the first issues an article on the relationship between tariffs and smuggling ("Tentativo analitico su i contrabbandi", vol. 1, pp. 122f.). This essay has been recognized by various authors as an important early contribution to mathematical economics and is been treated at length by Reghinos Theocharis. Beccaria posed the problem of a smuggler desirous to compute the risks of his profession. He attempts to express in algebraic formulae the relations between the value of goods purchased by the smuggler, the value of goods left after part of the goods have been seized by customs, and the value of the c … [Click Below for Full Description]

LAMBERT, J.H. - [COINING "PHENOMENOLOGY"]
Leipzig, Johann Wendler, 1764. 8vo. Non-uniformely bound. Vol 1: Totally uncut in the original cardboard-binding. Some wear to capitals and hinges. Internally a bit of minor occasional brownspotting. (18), 592 pp. Vol 2: 19th century marbled paper-binding with red gilt title-label to spine. Wear to extremities. Only light occasional brownspotting. (2), 435, (1). ¶ The very rare seminal first edition of Lambert's main philosophical work, the work which coined the term "phenomenology". "Neues Organon" is a work of breakthrough that came to, directly or indirectly, influence almost all later philosophy, also that of Kant.Johann Heinrich Lambert, is probably today remembered by most people as one of the greatest mathematicians and logicians of his time. However, a true polymath, he also played a dominant role in the development of 18th century philosophy, primarily with his philosophical magnum opus "Neues Organon", in which he set out to provide a better methodology for philosophy, with the aid of mathematics. As such, he is considered a path-breaker of Rationalism and one of the most important predecessors of Kant, who knew him well and admired him greatly; the two corresponded frequently. "Kant himself recognized Lambert as a philosopher of the highest qualities; and he expected much from his critical attitude. He had drafted a dedication of the "Critique of Pure Reason" to Lambert, but Lambert's untimely death prevented its inclusion.Lambert's place in the history of philosophy, however, should not be seen only in its relation to Kant. The genesis of his philosophical ideas … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lesuire, Robert Martin.]
London: Printed by Dryden Leach for T. Davies, 1764. Robert Martin Lesuire (1737-1815) was a French author, whose first novel Les Sauvages d'Europe, was a satire of British life. The novel's two young protagonists encounter a variety of troubles and mishaps while in England and decide that the British are somewhere between man and beast after they witness riots, hangings, corruption, and endure extreme Francophobia and unpalatable food. Small octavo. . [4], iii, [1, blank], 144 pp. Copper engraved frontispiece and three additional copper engravings. Half morocco over marbled boards with gilt-lettered and gilt-ruled spine. Marbled edges. Binding extremities rubbed with some wear and minor chipping to tail of spine and upper corner of front board. Front hinge slightly cracked. Some light offsetting, slight toning, and minor foxing. Pencil annotation on verso of front flyleaf. Armorial bookplate on front pastedown. A very good copy. First English edition. Lesuire's original edition was published in 1760. James Pettit Andrews (1737-1797) was a British historian and translator. According to the preface, he "picked up the original by accident, as he was making a tour on the Continent: - he was struck with the humour of it, and took it into his head, that though, in the satire, the failings of Englishmen are exaggerated beyond all reason, yet it might, on the whole, be of some use to his countrymen, to know in what light they are seen by foreigners.It is only necessary to add, that very few liberties have been taken in the translation; the author of Les Sauvages of Europe was too … [Click Below for Full Description]

Krasheninnikov, Stepan Petrovic (1713-1755); Grieve, James.
Glocester: R. Raikes for Thomas Jeffrys, 1764. First English language edition. The first English edition of Krasheninnikov's 1755 scientific description of Kamchatka, largely based on the notes of Georg Steller. Krasheninnikov abandoned the Great Northern Expedition to avoid becoming Steller's assistant, but was able to make use of his notes for this first scientific account of Bering's expedition to Alaska. Steller survived the shipwreck and scurvy that killed Bering and most of the crew, and continued to explore and document Kamchatka for several years, giving his name to a variety of newly discovered Arctic fauna and describing the native people of the region. . Quarto (27 cm); [8], vii, [8]-280, [8] pages, [8] leaves of plates (some folded) : illustrations, maps. Bound in full speckled calf outlined in gilt; red title label titled in gilt; spine in six compartments defined in gilt. Fore-edge stained red, faded. Joints and hinges reinforced, corner and edges renewed. Old commercial marks in pencil on front pastedown, along with old printed catalog entry. Old tears at corners of folding maps admirably repaired. Occasional paper blemishes; closed tear at S2; light even toning throughout. A very good copy!
