        Histoire de la Découverte faite en France, de Matières semblables à celles dont la Porcelaine de la Chine est composée. Lûe à l'Assemblée publique de l'Académie Royale des Sciences, le Mercredi 13 Novembre 1765

      23 pp. Large 4to, orig. marbled wrappers bound in later cloth. Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1765. First separate edition, an offprint with new pagination. Guettard (1715-86), who served as curator of Réaumur's natural history collections, was elected to the Académie Royale des Sciences as an adjoint botaniste. He is most famous for his discovery of the volcanic nature of the Auvergne and his attempt to construct a geological map of France in collaboration with Lavoisier. Guettard played an important role in the development of the porcelain industry in France. About 1750 the Duc d'Orléans founded a laboratory, under the direction of Guettard, in order to discover the art of making hard or Chinese porcelain. Having examined samples of the rare materials sent from China, Guettard determined that kaolin and petuntse near Alençon could be used. In the present work, Guettard describes his findings. The discovery of kaolin in France enabled the porcelain industry to finally successfully replicate the hard-paste porcelains of China which had for centuries been considered the finest in the world. This great discovery led to the enormous development of the porcelain industries of both Limoges and Sèvres. A year later, Brancas (1733-1824), Comte de Lauraguais, scientist and Academician, disputed the claims of Guettard regarding the discovery of kaolin, in his Observations sur le Mémoire de M. Guettard concernant la Porcelaine. Brancas claimed that he was the first, in 1758, to make French hard-paste, also using kaolin from Alençon. Tipped-in is a one-page autograph by Guettard regarding the transport of kaolin and difficulties with the customs agents. Fine copy and rare. Bookplate of Frederic Cheron. ❧ D.S.B., V, pp. 577-79. Poggendorff, I, 973-74.

        Erläuterungen der in Kupfer gestochenen Vorstellungen, aus der Geschichte der Reichstadt Augsburg. In historischen Briefen an ein Frauenzimmer

      Finely engraved frontis., engraved vignette on title, 11 fine chapter head-pieces, & 18 engraved plates. 1 p.l. (the frontis.), 264, [9] pp. 4to, cont. speckled half-sheep & speckled boards, orange leather lettering piece on spine, old blue painted label numbered "136" in bottom spine compartment. Augsburg: C.H. Stage, 1765 [frontis. dated "1767"]. First edition of this finely illustrated work on Augsburg, which pays particular attention to the artistic activities of the city. Stetten (1731-1808), was one of the most notable personalities of 18th-century Augsburg, active in city government and the arts. He wrote several other works on different aspects of the city, its history, and most notable residents as well as literary works. Stetten provides here not just a history of Augsburg but detailed accounts of the most important printers of the city, buildings, the leading artists, commercial and banking activities (much on the Fuggers), leading scientists and engineers, artisans, engravers, goldsmiths, collectors of art, chemists, musicians, architects, manufacturers of weapons, etc., etc. The 18 plates, each with two scenes, depict notable moments in the history of the city. Fine copy printed on thick paper. The frontispiece and the headpieces are particularly attractive. ❧ Lanckoronska-Oehler, I, 39-40 & 94-"Stetten hat nicht nur einen großen Teil der bekanntesten Stecher zur Ausschmückung des Werkes herangezogen, sondern hat auch selbst zahlreiche Landschaftsradierungen geschaffen…Die von ihm…ausführlich beschriebenen Kupfer bilden mit dem Text für das Augsburg des frühen 18.

        Disegno della seconda Marchina incendiata per comando di Sua Eccellenza il Signor Don Lorenzo Colonna

      1765 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1765. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini. Il foglio era applicato su tela ed in cornice; dopo un sapiente lavoro di restauro è stato riportato alla condizione originale. Presenta al verso tracce di colla, al recto delle leggere abrasioni e delle minime ossidazioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo. Etching, printed on contemporary laid paper, small tear perfectly repaired, otherwise in good condition The engravings have been laid on canvas and framed; after a long work to repair them, they now look almost perfect. Signs of glue on verso, on recto signs of abrasions and oxidations. Chinea literally means white female mule, the one the Kings of Spain offered every year to the Pope as a solemn payment of the income of the Kingdome of Naples. The horse, duly trained, knelt in front of the Pope and to offer him a silver vase with money inside, that was fastened to its saddle. The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as per Charl [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le Manœuvrier,

      Paris: chez H. L. Guerin & L. F. Delatour, , 1765. ou essai sur la thoerie et la pratique des mouvemens du navire et des évolutions navales. Par... officier des vaisseaux de la Compagnie des Indes. Octavo (198 x 120 mm). Contemporary French cats-paw calf, gilt spine decorated with floriate motifs (grape-and-vine tools at foot), red edges, marbled endpapers. Eight engraved folding plates of naval manoeuvres, typographical head-pieces and wood-engraved tail-pieces. Binding only lightly rubbed. An excellent copy, crisp and clean, with the terminal advertisement leaf. First edition of this important influence on the development of English naval thought; "divided into 4 pts: manoeuvring of ships, evolutions, miscellaneous marine matters, signalling, and also a glossary of terms. It was later translated by David Steel and incorporated into his Elements and practice of rigging and seamanship [1794]" (Craig). "Though less illuminating on fundamental principles than Morogues its methods of handling a fleet are more fully elaborated, and it ends by heralding the final reform with an explanation of the system of numerary signals devised and practised by that all too little appreciated genius Mahe de la Bourdonnais, under whom the author must have served in India." (Corbett, Signals and Instructions, 1776-1794, NRS Vol.XXXV). Despite Kempenfelt's efforts (he produced a translation of the signal portion of the book in 1781), a full translation into English was not made until 1788. Provenance: ownership inscription verso of first blank, and elegant engraved book label to front pastedown, of Devis Decrès, future minister of the navy under Napoleon. Decrès had a brilliant career, a midshipman in 1779, he took part in operations in the Caribbean from 1780 to 1783, promoted to ship's ensign in 1782 at the time that he took part in the Battle of the Saintes. His ownership inscription gives his rank as lieutenant, placing purchase of this volume between 1786 and 1793, when he became a captain. Arrested as a noble at the outbreak of the French Revolution, he was reinstated in 1795 and placed in command of the Formidable, and in her took part in the attempted invasion of Ireland in 1796. He was promoted to contre-amiral in 1798 and commanded a light squadron during the invasion of Egypt, covering the landing in Malta. He took part in the Battle of the Nile in the Diane, managing to avoid the slaughter, and escaping to Malta, raising his flag in the Guillaume Tell. He was captured trying to break the blockade, and eventually exchanged back to France in August 1800. Napoleon personally presented him with an honour sabre, and appointed him maritime prefect at Lorient. From 3 October 1801 to the fall of the Empire in 1814, he served as Napoleon's Minister of the Navy, being made a duke in April 1813. During the Hundred Days Decrès briefly resumed his post as Minister of the Navy. He died in a house fire in 1820. Scarce commercially and uncommon institutionally: Copac cites copies at five British and Irish institutional libraries (BM,Cambridge, Scotland, NMM, University College London), OCLC adds 17 institutions worldwide. A lovely copy in period calf with a distinguished provenance.

First published in December 1764 Goldsmith's philosophical poem is the first of his works to bear his name on the title-page. Taking its cue from from the French philosophes the poem is recounted by a lonely wanderer observing the character of the inhabitants of the nations, noting the effects of climate and the deleterious influence of wealth and luxury.'Where wealth and freedom reign, contentment fails, / And honor sinks where commerce long prevails'.Samuel Johnson contributed lines 420 and 429-38 (and reviewed the work for the Critical Review, Dec. 1764). Goldsmith made numerous early revisions and this copy is an example of the fourth state (Fleeman). 4to (285 × 212 mm), pp. [4], iv, 22, [2], complete with half-title and final advert leaf; uncut and stitched, browning to half-title; preserved in a green morocco chemise and slipcase, lettered in gilt .

Reliures en plein veau glacé et marbré. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin havane. Accroc avec manque au mors inférieur en queue du tome I. Petit manque au mors supérieur en queue du tome II. 2 coins légèrement émoussés. Traces de frottements. Bel exemplaire. Le premier volume est composé de divers vers de circonstances et d'autres poèmes académiques de Lafargue ainsi que d'un traité de la prononciation oratoire. On s'intéressera surtout au second volume inauguré par un traité sur la lecture et surtout de la traduction de L'histoire géographique de la Nouvelle-Ecosse ou Acadie, écrit anonyme basé en partie sur l'ouvrage de Charlevoix : Histoire de la Nouvelle-France. L'auteur y établit un relevé exact des baies, ports, biens et productions, une histoire de son commerce, et l'importance de sa situation géographique pour la sécurité de la Nouvelle-France, puisque la Nouvelle-Ecosse forme une péninsule devant le Quebec. L'auteur relève également les relations et démêlés entre la France et l'Angleterre à propos de ce territoire. Importante relation et sans doute la première sur cette région du nord-est du Canada où migrèrent de nombreux poitevins qui formèrent la langue acadienne et dont 12000 furent déportés en 1755 dans d'autres colonies anglaises.

        Galerie française de femmes célèbres par leurs talens, leur rang ou leur beauté.Paris, l'Éditeur [= Pierre de Lamésangère?] (back of half-title: printed by [George-Adrien] Crapelet), 1827. Large 4to (32 x 23 cm).) With 70 hand-coloured engraved plates. Later 19th-century red half morocco, red textured cloth sides, gold-tooled spine, decorated endpapers printed in gold on white, gilt edges.

      Brunet III, col. 795; Colas 1765; Hiller, p. 526; Lipperheide 1077. First edition of a series of 70 beautifully coloured plates of European women's costumes from the 12th to the 18th century. Most plates were engraved by George-Jacques Gatine after paintings by Louis Marie Lanté; the descriptive text is by Pierre de Lamésangère. The text briefly describes the lives of the women portrayed and often includes a descriptions of the clothes worn, which makes the series an interesting survey of fashion design. It showcases "vertugadins" (farthingales, said to have been introduced in France by Eleanor of Austria), "mouches" (beauty marks), chaperons, "pianalles" (flat shoes), hair-styles, hats (including the typical hennin), etc. One plate with a small tear, foxed throughout, the plates slightly browned, hinges reinforced. Binding professionally restored. A very attractive record of seven centuries of fashion design.

        History of the Colony of Nova-Caesaria, or New-Jersey .

      1765 - SMITH, SAMUEL. The History of the Colony of Nova-Caesaria, or New-Jersey: Containing, an Account of its First Settlement, Progressive Improvements, the Original and Present Constitution, and other Events, to the Year 1721. With some Particulars Since; and a Short View of its Present State. Burlington: James Parker, 1765. x, 573, [1] p. Neatly rebound with eighteenth-century marbled paper over boards, antique-style calf spine. Modern endpapers but retaining original flyleaves. The usual sporatic foxing and occasional browning always found in this book, but a very good copy. With the signatures of Anna A. Mickle (1902), Mary E.T. Lord (1884) and an undated earlier signature of Mary Ridgway. Removed from the original pastedown and laid in is the eighteenth-century stamp of "H*ELTON," identified in an earlier hand as probably Hannah Borradaile Elton (1731-1799). The first edition of the first general history of New Jersey, printed by New Jersey's first printer. James Parker left his Woodbridge printing office in the care of his son and moved to Burlington to fulfill a long-standing promise to Samuel Smith to print his history as soon as it was ready for the press. The printing press used was one belonging to Benjamin Franklin and formerly used by Franklin's nephew, Benjamin Mecom, in Antigua. The press was shipped from New York to Burlington in April of 1765, used for the Smith book and three or four smaller Burlington jobs, then sent on to Philadelphia in February of 1766, at which time Parker returned to Woodbridge. The press run was 600 copies, as indicated by Parker's bill to Smith. Parker printed two title pages simultaneously on a single sheet, thus providing each title page a blank conjugate for binding that also precluded the need for a free front endpaper. This old-time and cost-saving printer's trick, combined with stop-press alterations in the text of a number of sheets, has led past bibliographers to speak of two distinct issues of the book. There is absolutely no correlation between the uncorrected and corrected sheets and the two title pages; all were freely mixed by the binder without any discernable pattern or priority.

Occassionally light browning to leaves and a few scattered brownspots. Scarce first edition comprising his famous map of North America, first published here. "Engel's map covers all of North America from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Circle and from the Grand Banks to what appears to be a proto-Alaskan archipelago. It is presented on an unusual equidistant cylindrical projection, possibly on the c. 1745 Cassini-Soldner model. Engel's map consolidates numerous cartographic theories, reports from voyages both dubious and factual, and established conventions from earlier maps, into a sophisticated and fascinating examination of the general layout and waterways of North America. Samuel Engel (1702-1784) was a Swiss geographer, agronomist, and mathematician active in the middle part of the 17th century. His main work, Memoires and Observations was published in 1765 and while somewhat obscure today was highly influential in the 1700s. Engel argued that ice only formed in fresh water and that, such being the case, the Arctic Ocean would be ice-free and navigable closer to the poles. Engel's theories influenced exploration in search of the Northwest Passage, specifically, the launching of the disastrous 1773 Phipps expedition to the North Pole. He also wrote several articles for Diderot's Encyclopedie, including a description of a pre-Columbian Chinese colony in North America - Fusang. Engle also argued that Baron Lahonton, an enigmatic explorer of America's inland waterways, was in fact fictitious - though he nonetheless incorporated Lahonton's geography in his own maps". - Sabin, 22571.
