Con Real Permiso. Madrid: En la Imprenta Real de la Gaceta, 1765. [viii], x, 296 pp. Folio (13-3/4" x 8-3/4"). Contemporary mottled sheep, gilt spine with raised bands, edges rouged, marbled endpapers. Moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, front board beginning to separate, but quite secure, rear hinge starting. Title page printed in red and black, woodcut text ornaments. Very light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places. Early annotations to verso of half-title, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Location label to spine, small inkstamp to title page, annotations and stamps to verso. An attractive copy. * First edition. In the Middle Ages the Church acquired an enormous amount of land and other property. In most cases, it was held in mortmain, a feudal principle, later adopted by the common law, that restricted conveyance to specific parties, in this case those within the Church, unless an exception was made by a monarch. The Church's accumulation of material wealth through this practice was an important aspect of the conflict between church and state in the Medieval and early modern periods. Secular criticism became stronger during the Enlightenment, a movement that viewed the Church with suspicion, as we can see in this treatise by Rodriguez Campomanes, a notable Enlightenment-influenced Spanish statesman. It begins with a history and review of mortmain, then builds an argument for its curtailment. It was a fairly well-circulated book. An Italian translation was published in 1767 and a second Spanish-language edition followed in 1821. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 21:880.

All published. Folio. Contemporary full leather, uniformly bound, neatly rebacked, spines gilt w/ gilt spine labels, covers soiled, edges bumped, interior clean and free of foxing. Provenance: The Library of The Royal Society of London with duplicate stamps on title. - Nevil Maskelyne was appointed Astronomer Royal in 1765, a position he held for forty-six years, until his death. He was responsible for important developments in both methods and instruments of observation, and in 1774 was able to measure the earth&#39;s density. He had himself established the Nautical Almanac in 1766, and superintended its annual publication until his death. This essential aid to navigation is still produced annually, by Her Majesty&#39;s Nautical Almanac Office. In 1776 he produced the first volume of the Astronomical Observations made at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, from 1665. At the end of the first volume Maskelyne gives a catalogue of the places of 34 principal stars, in right-ascension and north-polar distance, adapted to the beginning of the year 1770. These, being the result of several years&#39; repeated observations, made with the utmost care, and the best instruments, it may be presumed are exceedingly accurate..

      London: Printed for and Sold by C. Barry..., P. Stevens..., A. Wesley..., and J. Walters..., 1765. 8vo, 193 x 128 mms., pp. xvi, 144, engraved frontispiece, 13 other engraved plates, contemporary sheepskin (very worn and wormed, or perhaps ravaged by a hungry pigeon), but joints firm. John Moore (d. 1737) published this work with the title Columbarium in 1735. William Bowyer printed 750 copies, but this apparent second edition was soon in print with a longer title and the addition of the engraved plates. Although ESTC and other sources attribute the work to John Moore, this is a different work. For example, on page 140, the author, writing about the pigeon called "The Mahomet" refers to "Mr. Moore, in his columbarium...." He adds that "Mahomet, the impostor prophet of the Turkish converse frequently the holy spirit" with said pigeon.

        Il metodo naturale di cura.

      Padova, Volpi, 1765. - Large 4to. XII, 337, (1) pp. With woodcut title vignette and heraldic woodcut on last f. verso. Later marbled half calf with gilt-stamped title to spine; new marbled endpapers. Top edge coloured in red. First and only Italian edition of George Cheyne's final work (1742), translated by a Florentine physician who attests to Cheyne's enormous popularity in England and addends a brief life of the celebrated doctor to the work. At the same time as Newton's geophysical ideas were being introduced into Italy (against some opposition!), the present work would indicate that Newtonian medicine (of the Edinburgh school) was also in circulation. - The present translation is dedicated to the Venetian Ambassador in London, Lorenzo Morosini, who during his residence "has had leisure to observe the great strides in Medical Science in that country". Most striking are Mei's repeated references to Cheyne as "one of the greatest modern luminaries of the Medical Arts, standing alongside Hippocrates amongst the ancients and the great Sydenham amongst the moderns". - George Cheyne (1671/2-1743) became one of the most prominent defenders of the Newtonian system of medicine in Edinburgh before moving to London in 1701. He was decidedly unsuccessful as a physician in his earlier years, and retreated to Aberdeen in 1705. "Little is known about the period between 1705, when Cheyne suffered his collapse, and 1715, when he re-emerged to the public " (DNB). However, several of his later works proved immensely popular, among these the present one; according to the DNB the Natural Method "gives the fullest exposition of his mature thought It both summarized his earlier ideas and added new material. In a section addressed specifically to women, he detailed his preformationist views on generation ". After an inauspicious start, Cheyne appears to have developed his career considerably; Gilbert Burnet and Hans Sloane are said to have referred their patients to him, and his Essay of Health and Long Life (1724) "made him one of the best-known physicians in Britain" (DNB). Like Sydenham, Cheyne's works managed to reach foreign audiences; a French translation of the Natural Method appeared in 1749, while Cheyne's other works also enjoyed translations into Latin and Dutch. Cosimo Mei's introduction of the English physician to the Italian public is accompanied by a woodcut vignette and a quotation from Virgil, a life of Cheyne, and two prefatory notes to the reader explaining the circumstances of its publication. Blake 86. Cf. DNB IV, 219, 8. Not in Waller or Osler.

"Bouvart, physician and doctor regent of the faculty of Paris, and associate-veteran of the Academy of Science, was born a Chartres. Many of his ancestors having been physicians, he determined on the same profession, which he practised at Paris with so much success that no other physician was more consulted; yet this did not prevent him being jealous of Tronchin, Bordeu, and some others, of whom he spoke very illiberally, but he was a man otherwise of great kindness and benevolence. One anecdote is recorded as characteristic. A banker, who had experienced some heavy losses, was taken ill, and Bouvart, who was called in, suspected that his weighed on his mind, but could not obtain the secret from him. The banker&#39;s wife, however, was more communicative, and told him that her husband had a payment of twenty thousand livres to make very shortly, for which he was unprovided. Bou

        Dissertazione epistolare sull'origine della Universitá di Pisa scritta al reverendiss. padre maestro Odoardo Corsini.

      Francesco Polloni,, Pisa 1765 - First edition of this work on the early history of the University of Pisa. Though a little younger than the University of Bologna, the university at Pisa is one of the oldest in Europe, with origins in the city's eleventh-century law school. Its importance to the early history of European law lay in part in its custody of the oldest surviving manuscript of Justinian's Pandects, which it kept until it was taken by the Florentines at the beginning of the fifteenth century. Pisa attracted many lawyers in the eleventh century (prominent among them were Opitone and Sigerdo) while no less than four professors of the Bologna law school (Bulgarus, Burgundio, Uguccione, and Bandino) were educated there.Borgo, who published a separate work on the Pandects manuscript the previous year (Dissertazione sopra l'istoria dei Codici pisani delle Pandette di Giustiniano imperatore, Lucca 1764), here traces the origins of the university as a law school long before Papal recognition was granted in the fourteenth century.Borgo was born and educated at Pisa, graduating in law in 1726 and teaching Civil Law there from 1731. His life was devoted to the study of law and the early records of the city and university. 4to (242 × 170 mm), pp. xi, [i], 133, [3] complete with half-title and errata. Title printed in red and black, engraved vignette, woodcut initials and headpiece. Contemporary quarter sheep, elaborate coloured block printed paper covered boards, pink paper corners. Spine worn, with some slight worming, slight loss at head. A large and attractive copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Treatise on Domestic Pigeons, comprehending all of the different species known in England; describing the perfections and imperfections of each, ... the method of breeding the most curious and valuable sorts, ... the generation of pigeons in general

      London: C. Berry, 1765. First edition. The title page shows some minor offsetting from the frontis plate, a few of the plates are trimmed with no loss to image, there is a touch of marginal foxing to a few pages of the text; a tight and clean copy in very good condition.. Pp. xvi, 144, engraved frontispiece of pigeon coop, 13 engraving plates of different pigeons. Later full green leather, lettered in gilt on the spine and with gilt ruling on the front and rear covers, attractive green marbled endpapers, 8vo. This work was originally privately printed in 1735 by John Moore. It was then titled &#39;The Columbarium&#39; and issued in a very small edition - only six copies are known to exist in libraries around the world (Casey Wood, 471). It was later published in 1765 under the title &#39;A Treatise on Domestic Pigeons&#39; in an edition of only 750 copies. This second printing was published anonymously by a practical pigeon fancier. However, it is an exact reproduction of Moore&#39;s Columbarium of 1735. This is the first English book on pigeons and is a great rarity.

      Amsterdam: Isaak Tirion, 1765.. Copper-engraved map, with full original color. Sheet size: 16 x 19 inches. In excellent condition. A very attractive and detailed map of the American Southwest and Baja California, by a respected Amsterdam cartographer. This highly detailed map, with beautiful full original colour embraces the area from what is now central Arizona and southern California down to Sonora and the Baja California Peninsula of Mexico. The map depicts the region during an especially fascinating time in its development. The Baja Peninsula and Sonora are shown to be dotted with Spanish garrisons and Jesuit missions established in the wake of Father Eusebio Kino who explored the area in the late 1600s. Kino was also the first cartographer to definitively establish that California is not an island, as previously thought. The notations on the map refer to various episodes in the exploration of the region. The shores of the Peninsula and the Sea of Cortés are charted in finely assured detail as are the courses of the lower Colorado and Gila Rivers, the latter running near the present-day site of Phoenix, Arizona. With reference to what is now known as southern California, the map depicts the Channel Islands, and extends past "Kaap St. Diego" up towards modern-day Los Angeles, however the shape of the coastline seems to be based more on conjecture than on actual discovery. The first mission in Alta California, San Diego (founded 1769), was yet to be established, and accurate charting of the region by such figures as the Comte de La Pérouse were still to occur a generation into the future. The present map was included in Tirion&#39;s highly regarded NIEUWE EN BEKNOPTE HAND-ATLAS. LOWERY COLLECTION 498. PHILLIPS MAPS, p.494. PHILLIPS ATLASES, 600-102. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 148.
