Thomas Hutchinson
Thomas and John Fleet, Boston, MA, 1764. FIRST EDITION. [6], iv, 566 pp. Hardcover in contemporary cloth with red leather spine and gilt title label on spine. Age toning and minor foxing throughout the text. "Hutchinson did not seek his role as an ally of the Crown. Rather, he was a vigorous and conventional defender of Massachusetts interests. He opposed, for example, the impressment of Massachusetts inhabitants by British naval vessels. In 1742 he confronted Captain William Scott on the deck of H.M.S. Astraea and demanded the release of one seaman and the hostage wife of a man Scott was attempting to impress. Hutchinson persuaded Shirley to intervene in their behalf. In 1747 Speaker Hutchinson mediated between a violent anti-impressment mob and the provincial government; the Massachusetts House approved such a strong anti-impressment resolution that the mob dispersed. 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 like the advocates of an inflated money supply he had battled in the 1740s. Though Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) got credit for the Albany Plan of colonial union in 1754, Hut … [Click Below for Full Description]

A talented artist, for many years he earned his living as a portraitist. In later years he was able to devote himself to science, delivering popular lectures on science, and designing instruments. He invented eight orreries, a tide-dial, a 'whirling table' for displaying the mode of central forces, the 'mechanical paradox' and various kinds of astronomical clocks, stellar and lunar rotulas, as well as his 'seasons illustrator' and the 'eclipsareon' of which he was very proud..."

Charles Nicolas COCHIN
1764. Acquaforte e bulino, datata e firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, alcuni restauri perfettamente eseguiti, tracce di colla la verso, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. La tavola deriva da uno dei celebri dipinti di Joseph Vernet, ed è incisa a 4 mani dal Cochin e da Jacques Philippe Le Bas. È grazie al patrocinio di M. de Martigny, Direttore degli Belli Arti e fratello di Madame de Pompadour, che aveva a quel tempo tutte il favore di Luigi XV, che Vernet ha ottenuto del Re un ordine per 24 dipinti dove poteva dare tutta la misura del suo talento: la rapprezentanza dei porti della Francia. La moda di grandi composizioni rappresentando i marine è cominciata. Nel 1753, l'artista dipinge due Vedute del porto di Marsiglia che gli valgono l'anno successivo l'ammissione all'Accademia Reale di Parigi. Terminò il suo lavoro, dopo ben 12 anni di viaggio per le città francesi, nel 1765. Etching with engravings, signed and dated at lower center. A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, some expert repairs at the back, otherwise in good condition. This plate is engraved by Cochin & Jacques Philippe Le Bas, after a painting by Joseph Vernet. Vernet was commissioned by Louis XV in 1753 to paint fifteen views of the main ports of France, and given the exceptional title of "peintre des marines de sa majesté". He spent twelve years travelling around the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Channel coasts with his family and servants in tow.

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]

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.
