        THE SCHOOL OF FENCING, with a General Explanation of the Principal Attitudes and Positions Peculiar to the Art.

      London: S. Hooper 1765 - Oblong folio, 18 1/2 x 11 inches, bound in period half calf over marbled boards, hinges repaired and a bit worn. Title, (1), 63, (4) pages, illustrated with 47 FINE HAND COLOURED ENGRAVED PLATES by James Gwynn. Complete. The hand colouring is old, possibly period, but some shading has been enhanced at a later date. One plate is torn in the margin without loss of image. There are some paint spills on a few plates that seem unrelated to the colourist- possibly by an artist using the volume for reference? COLOURED COPIES OF THIS SEMINAL WORK ARE RARE. The first English edition - the first French edition was two years earlier. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica -Angelo was the first to emphasise fencing as a means of developing health, poise, and grace. As a result of his insight and influence, fencing changed from an art of war to a sport. An unusual coloured copy of this important work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Juni 1777 in Gnadenberg/Schlesien) war ein deutscher Theologe und Missionar, der besonders als Geschichtsschreiber Bedeutung erlangte. Cranz verbrachte ein Jahr in Grönland und befasste sich dort hauptsächlich mit der Niederschrift der Geschichte der grönländischen Missionen in Neu-Herrnhut und Lichtenfels. Die dort gesammelten Erkenntnisse veröffentlichte er 1765 in seinem wichtigsten Werk, der „Historie von Grönland“, die heute als eine der bedeutendsten historischen Beschreibungen der traditionellen Kultur Grönlands gilt. Besonders die naturgeschichtlichen Abhandlungen, Landkarten und Kupferstiche daraus gehören zu den besten ihrer Zeit und waren in Deutschland äußerst populär. (zit. nach Wikipedia).

        A DISCOURSE UPON THE INSTITUTION OF MEDICAL SCHOOLS IN AMERICA, DELIVERED AT A PUBLIC ANNIVERSARY COMMENCEMENT, HELD IN THE COLLEGE OF PHILADELPHIA MAY 30 AND 31, 1765. WITH A PREFACE CONTAINING, AMONGST OTHER THINGS, THE AUTHOR'S APOLOGY FOR ATTEMPTING TO INTRODUCE THE REGULAR MODE OF PRACTICING PHYSIC IN PHILADELPHIA

      Philadelphia, 1765. 12mo. 20th-century three-quarter morocco over boards, spine gilt. Spine and covers soiled, slightly worn. Titlepage and last printed page laid down on paper. Titlepage soiled and chipped (affecting a few letters in imprint). Worming in top and bottom margins throughout volume (no loss of text). Light browning. A good copy. First edition of the first book published in the North American British colonies on medical education. Morgan served in the French and Indian War, but received his formal medical training in Edinburgh. Upon his return to America in 1765, he proposed a system for medical education in America with this address and founded the first medical school in America at the College of Philadelphia (now the University of Pennsylvania Medical School). "At the College's annual commencement the same year, he delivered the present DISCOURSE, an elaborate exposition on the nature and scope of medical science, its conditions in America, obstacles to medical study and reasons for the establishment of medical schools. He argued the need for separating the functions of physician, apothecary, and surgeon, and declared his intention to limit himself to the practice of internal medicine solely by prescription. These were advanced ideas which at first met with much opposition, as his opponents claimed that they were not applicable to conditions in the colonies" - Norman. A good copy of an important work in the history of medicine in the colonies.

        Mémoire sur les ponts et chaussées.

      1765 ca 1765 - Manuscrit in-4 de (10)-470 pp., veau havane marbré, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure de l'époque). Mémoire manuscrit et anonyme sur la modernisation des Ponts et chaussées sous le règne de Louis XV. Ecrit à la première personne très certainement par l'un des proches collaborateurs de l'intendant Trudaine, il offre un tableau exhaustif de l'administration et des finances de ce corps à une période où il fut entièrement réorganisé. 1e partie : sur les différentes parties des chemins (des ponts, chaussées ou grands chemins, largeur et dimensions des chemins, fossés qui bordent les grands chemins, Plans d'arbres qui sont sur la lisière des grands chemins, Du pavé et des espaces en terre qui sont aux deux côtés du pavé, De divers travaux concernant le cours et la navigation de plusioeurs rivières). 2e partie : des fonds destinés aux dépenses des ponts et chaussées. 3e partie des règlements généraux concernant les ponts et chaussées et des maximes qu'on observe dans ce genre d'administration. 4e partie : Des officiers chargés de l'administration des Ponts & Chaussées. 5e partie Des trésoriers et controlleurs des Ponts et chaussées. 6e partie : des comptes des ponts et chaussées, De ce qui précède la reddition des comptes, De la présentation des comptes, De la recette, De la dépense du compte des Ponts & chaussées : entretien d'ouvrages, du paiement des nouveaux ouvrages, Continuation d'ouvrages, des parfaits paiements des ouvrages, d'exception des formalités, Des indemnités accordées par le roi, des matériaux provenant de démolition d'édifices publics et de maisons particulières et des collections de matériaux appartenant au roi ; Appointements frais de voiage , Gages et taxations fixes, gages et augmentations des gages des trésoriers particuliers. Après avoir occupé les charges de maître des requêtes puis conseiller d?Etat Charles-Daniel Trudaine (1703-1769) fut choisi en 1743 par le contrôleur général Orry pour diriger en qualité d?intendant des finances, le service des Ponts et chaussées, une des fonctions les plus élevées de l?administration centrale après celle de Contrôleur général des Finances, en charge de la vérification, du contrôle des Finances royales et du budget de l?Etat. En plus de cette responsabilité, l?intendant des Finances était aussi chargé avec le contrôleur général des Finances du « détail » des Ponts et chaussées, c?est-à-dire de l?administration et de l?organisation de ce corps. Instigateur du « Bureau des dessinateurs », bureau qui deviendra en 1747 « l?Ecole » du corps royal des ponts et chaussées, c?est lui qui choisit de placer Jean-Rodolphe Perronet à sa tête, qui aura d'ailleurs le titre de "premier ingénieur" des ponts et chaussées à partir de 1763. « C'est à l'administration de Trudaine que nous devons les actes, remarquables pour l'époque, rendus en matière de mines, et notamment l'arrêt du Conseil du 14 janvier 1744, qui reprit l'imprudente concession, faite, en 1698, par Louis XIV, aux propriétaires du sol, du droit d'exploiter les mines de houille dans leurs fonds; cet arrêt donna sur la conduite des travaux de ces mines les premières clauses générales de police minérale. En tant qu'administrateur des ponts et chaussées, Daniel Trudaine, économiste éclairé, fait réaliser plusieurs milliers de kilomètres de routes royales (actuelles routes nationales) reliant Paris aux frontières et aux principaux ports de mer. » (Louis Aguillon, Notice Historique de l'Ecole des Mines de Paris). Important document inédit sur le développement routier au XVIIIème siècle, témoin de « l'interventionnisme des gouvernants, doublé d'une mentalité qui glisse doucement de l'utilité commerciale et économique pure selon la vision colbertienne vers le bien public, qui doit être assuré par l'Etat et ses représentants : les intendants » (Geneviève Zembri-Mary).

Band, 5. Abteilung in zwei Bänden), insgesamt also 123 Bände.

      Berlin und Stettin: verlegt bei Friedrich Nicolai, 1765 bis 1792. 19,5 x 12,5 cm, 123 zeitgenössische, uniform gebundene, mittelbraune Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf braunen und Bandzählung auf schwarzen Rückenschildern, reicher Rückenvergoldung, Deckel mit sandfarbenen Kiebitzpapier (gesprenkelt) bezogen, Lederecken, dreiseitiger Rotschnitt. Ohne die Bände 56, 80, 87 und des Anhanges zum 53. - 86. Band, 3. Abteilung (Band).Im 106. Band, 1792, verkündete Nicolai den Verkauf seines Verlagswerkes an Carl Ernst Bohn in Kiel. \"Die Allgemeine deutsche Bibliothek (AdB) war eine von Friedrich Nicolai herausgegeben Rezensionszeitschrift. Die Zeitschrift erschien von 1765 bis 1806, seit 1793 unter dem Titel Neue allgemeine deutsche Bibliothek (NADB). Das Erscheinen war vierteljährlich, d. h. es erschienen pro Jahr zwei Bände und jeder Band in zwei Stücken. Es erschienen 117 Bände der ADB mit 20 Supplementbänden.. . Nicolai kündigte sein Vorhaben wie folgt an:Man leget hier dem deutschen Publico das erste Stück, der allgemeinen deutschen Bibliothek vor, wovon vierteljährig ein Stück von ohngefähr eben der Stärke erscheinen wird. Zwey Stücke werden einen Band ausmachen und jeder Band wird mit dem Bildnisse eines berühmten deutschen Schriftstellers gezieret seyn. Dieses Werk soll seiner Absicht nach, eine allgemeine Nachricht, von der ganzen neuen deutschen Litteratur vom Jahre 1764. an, in sich enthalten. Man wird also darinn von allen in Deutschland neu herauskommenden Büchern, und andern Vorfällen, die die Litteratur angehen, Nachricht zu ertheilen suchen. Schriften, von einiger Wichtigkeit, sonderlich deutsche Originalschriften, wird man ausführlich recensiren, so daß sich der Leser von dem ganzen Werke selbst aus der Recension einen richtigen Begriff machen kann. Schriften von minderer Wichtigkeit, und Uebersetzungen wird man nur kürzlich anzeigen, doch mit Beyfügung eines kurzen Urtheils, über den Werth derselben. Akademische Dissertationen, einzelne Predigten und andere kleine Tractätgen, (sie müßten denn durch ihre Wichtigkeit und Merkwürdigkeit eine Ausnahme verdienen) wird man gar nicht anzeigen. Das war ein vom Umfang her selbst zu jener Zeit sehr ambitioniertes Vorhaben, es gelang Nicolai jedoch, nicht nur zahlreiche sondern auch prominente Mitarbeiter zu gewinnen. 1766 konnte er insbesondere Johann Gottfried Herder gewinnen, mit dem es aber 1774 zu einem Zerwürfnis kam. Zeitweise arbeiteten 150 Autoren für die ADB. Im Laufe von über 40 Jahren besprachen 433 Rezensenten über 80.000 Neuerscheinungen. Rezensiert wurden Bücher aus allen Fachgebieten. Während im naturwissenschaftlichen Bereich die ADB den Entwicklungen und Fortschritten der Zeit folgte, geriet sie im Bereich der Literatur durch die sowohl Herausgeber als auch Rezensenten verbindende Ideologie der Aufklärung - die ADB galt als Sprachrohr der Berliner Aufklärung, einer Spielart der Spätaufklärung - in Gegensatz zu neueren Entwicklungen des Sturm und Drangs und der Weimarer Klassik. Die Gegensätze waren teilweise auch ganz persönlich motiviert, so ärgerte sich Goethe über die von Nicolai verfasste Werther-Parodie und verfasste eine leicht unflätige Replik. Auch in den Xenien erscheint Nicolai mehrfach mit Namen. Der Philosoph Fichte verfasste gar einen Anti-Nicolai.\" / \"Christoph Friedrich Nicolai, auch Nickolai (* 18. März 1733 in Berlin; † 8. Januar 1811 ebenda) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller, Verlagsbuchhändler, Kritiker, Verfasser satirischer Romane und Reisebeschreibungen, Regionalhistoriker, Hauptvertreter der Berliner Aufklärung, Freund Lessings, Zelters und Mendelssohns, Gegner Kants und Fichtes. Die von Nicolai herausgegebene Allgemeine deutsche Bibliothek (nach 1793 \'Neue allgemeine deutsche Bibliothek\') gewann bald den Status des wichtigsten Organs der Aufklärung in deutscher Sprache.\" (Wikipedia) * * * Einbände teils etwas berieben, einige Ecken bestoßen, die Rücken mit dezenten Lichtschatten oder Leimschleiern wohl entfernter Standortsignaturen, einige Rücken mit kleinen eher unscheinbaren Beschädigungen, einige Deckel vornehmlich im Leder mit Wurmgängen, die Titelblätter rückseitig gestempelt, wie auch die letzten Seiten mit einem kleinen Rundstempel versehen sind.

        JOURNALS OF MAJOR ROBERT ROGERS: CONTAINING AN ACCOUNT OF SEVERAL EXCURSIONS HE MADE UNDER THE GENERALS WHO COMMANDED UPON THE CONTINENT OF NORTH AMERICA, DURING THE LATE WAR. [bound with:] A CONCISE ACCOUNT OF NORTH AMERICA: CONTAINING A DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL BRITISH COLONIES ON THAT CONTINENT...ALSO OF THE INTERIOR, OR WESTERLY PARTS OF THE COUNTRY, UPON THE RIVERS ST. LAURENCE, THE MISSISSIPPI, CHRISTINO, AND THE GREAT LAKES

      London, 1765. Half title for first item. Contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt with raised bands. Hinges weak with leather cracked along hinges, chipped at spine ends, corners worn. Early ownership signature on titlepage of first volume. Very clean and fresh internally. Near fine overall. In a half morocco and cloth box, red leather labels. First editions of two classics from the pen of Robert Rogers, whose legend was formed by his actions in the French and Indian War (described in the first volume). The JOURNALS... is complete with the half title and the two advertisement leaves at the rear which are not always present, and also features an advertisement for a second volume of Rogers' memoirs, which never appeared. A CONCISE ACCOUNT... is the companion work to Rogers' journal, though in our experience the two are not often found bound together. Rogers acted as a scout for the 1755 expedition against Crown Point, and in 1756 became captain of an independent company of Rangers. He made scores of raids against the French in New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, going as far west as the shores of Lake Huron. His exploits, detailed in his JOURNALS..., made him the most romantic and famous figure of the war in America. The book has served as the basis for much romantic fiction, most notably Kenneth Roberts' NORTHWEST PASSAGE. Rogers went on to briefly lead British rangers at the outset of the Revolution, raising recruits to fight against the American rebels. A CONCISE ACCOUNT... was also published in 1765, and it too was "printed for the author and sold by J. Millan." This is an important work utilizing Rogers' knowledge of the western country. It includes detailed descriptions of geography, Indian tribes encountered, etc. "The first geographical account of the American interior after England had wrested it from France, and, aside from those of Pittman and Hutchins, the most accurate of the period" - Howes. "One of the most accurate contemporary accounts of the interior of North America as it was when England took it from France" - Streeter.

        Commentaries on the Laws of England

      1765 - BLACKSTONE, William. Commentaries on the Laws of England. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1765-69. Four volumes. Quarto, contemporary full tan calf rebacked, raised bands, red and green morocco spine labels. $22,000.Rare first edition of Blackstone’s landmark Commentaries, perhaps the single most important legal work in Anglo-American history.One of the greatest achievements in legal history, Blackstone's Commentaries of the Laws of England was instrumental to the definition of the English constitution and important in establishing common law as the basis of the American legal system. "The Commentaries are not only a statement of the law of Blackstone's day, but the best history of English law as a whole which had yet appeared… the skillful manner in which Blackstone uses his authorities new and old, and the analogy of other systems of law, to illustrate the evolution of the law of his day, had a vast influence, both in England and America" (NYU, 34). The Commentaries helped clarify English law by introducing to the public its formative traditions. "Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine… Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation… He did for the English what the imperial publication of Roman law did for the people of Rome" (PMM 212). With the engraved Table of Consanguinity and the Table of Descents (folding plate) in Volume II. Without the rare "Supplement to the First Edition," often not present. Sweet & Maxwell, 27. Marvin 122. Harvard Law Catalogue I:187. Rothschild 407. Eller 1. Grolier English 52. Armorial bookplates (in three volumes).

        Juvenile Poems of Various Subjects. With the Prince of Parthia: A Tragedy by the late Mr. Thomas Godfrey, Jun. of Philadelphia. To which is Prefixed some Account of the Author and his Writings

      Philadelphia: Printed by Henry Miller, in Second-Street, 1765. First edition. xxvi, [2], 223, [1] pp. 1 vols. Small 4to. Period style full calf, red morocco label to spine, spine and boards with gilt rules. Small paper repair to lower corner of title. A superior copy in a fine binding. First edition. xxvi, [2], 223, [1] pp. 1 vols. Small 4to. The first play produced by an American. First edition of The Prince of Parthia which was "the first drama written by a native American to be produced upon the professional stage" (DAB). The play debuted on 24 April 1767 at the Southwark Theatre in Philadelphia. Performed by David Douglass's American Company, its riches were such that a second performance was deemed unnecessary. Nonetheless it's a significant moment in American theatre, not least for being performed in the first permanent theatre in the country. This work and its performance precedes Royall Tyler's comedy, the Contrast, by some twenty years. Alas, Godfrey did not live to see his play produced. He had passed away from yellow fever in 1763. However, in his short life he was friends with the likes of Benjamin Franklin, Francis Hopkinson and Benjamin West, all significant players in the founding of American arts. He was also the son of the inventor of the same name which possibly facilitated these relationships. In addition to the text of the play, his poetry is collected here. Godfrey's poetry is considered to be the some of the best produced in the colony and its inclusion here adds to the significance of the volume. Furthermore, this work includes two pieces titled "Elegy, to the memory of Mr Thomas Godfrey" one by John Green, the other by Nathaniel Evans, who helped usher this volume into print. It is complete with the list of subscribers. Rare. ABPC lists no copies at auction in the past 35 years. Evans 9983; Sabin 27658; Hughes p.38; Hildeburn, C.R. Pennsylvania, 2129; Wegelin, O.

        Die auf Wolken schwebenden Musen.

      - Aquarell über Bleistift, auf Bütten. 31:21,4 cm. Entwurf für eine Wanddekoration. Fischetti erhielt seine Ausbildung in Neapel bei G. Borrello (in Neapel um 1765 tätig) und war danach für Kirchen, den Hof und vornehme private Auftraggeber in Neapel und auch außerhalb tätig. Er genoß zu Lebzeiten einen guten Ruf. Seine Hauptwerke, Fresken und Altarbilder, befinden sich in der Kirche Spirito Santo, in S. Elegio Maggiore, S. Domenico Maggiore, S. Caterina da Siena etc. in Neapel. Ferner malte er Bilder für das Schlafzimmer der Königin im Palazzo Reale und schuf zusammen mit A. de Dominici (um 1730-vor 1800) Gouachemalereien in den Schlössern Caserta und S. Leucio und Bilder für das Schloß in Madrid. Owohl Fischetti ein erfindungsreicher, guter Zeichner und Kolorist war, ist er heute relativ wenig bekannt.

         Considérations sur le Gouvernement ancien et présent de la France par M. le marquis d'Argenson.

(provenance : Paul Darblay, maire de Corbeil, avec cachet ex-libris du château de Saint-Germain-lès-Corbeil) 3e édition. L'ouvrage fut très sérieusement condamné et M.M. Rey publia au moins 3 éditions durant les années 1764-1765. D'Argenson, ancien ministre des Affaires étrangères de Louis XV, proche des "philosophes" et de Voltaire, était un partisan du libéralisme, mais une sorte de "libéralisme aristocratique". Selon (Mornet, Origines Intellectuelles de la Révolution Fr.) "En matière sociale et politique les idées de d'Argenson sont à la fois hardies, brutales et timorées.... (il) tend vers une sorte de socialisme imposé et surveillé par une aristocratie qui n'en prendrait que ce qu'elle voudrait". Et selon (Weurlesse) "Sa doctrine économique a de nombreux points communs avec celles des physiocrates. S'ils ne reconnurent pas en lui un précurseur direct, du moins ils lui adressèrent les mêmes éloges qu'à Gournay ". ¶ INED 87 - Stourm 107 - Higgs 3368 - Lichtenberger Socialisme au XVIIIe pp. 93-103. - Manque à Kress et Einaudi.

        An Act for explaining and rendering more effectual Two Acts ... with regard to the making Experiments of Proposals for discovering the Longitude

      London: Mark Baskett, 1765. Folio, title page, pp. 367-374, fine. An important Longitude Act, bringing John Harrison closer to reward but insisting the secret workings of his chronometers be revealed. Having outlined the successful sea trials during voyages to Jamaica and Barbados, this Act formalises the demand for Harrison to deliver the prototype H-4 and two identical operational copies of the chronometer (complete with diagrams) within a space of six months to be considered for the reward. Even at this stage only one half of the grand prize of £20,000 was on offer - with this payment being entirely contingent upon delivery of the timekeepers and working diagrams. For the remainder, the Act necessitates the improvement and supply of further chronometers and exhaustive testing before the balance will be paid, the 'other £10,000 to be paid when the other Time Keepers are made, and proved to be of sufficient Correctness'.The original Act of 1714 allowed partial payment to persons who provided useful method for reckoning the longitude but did not formally qualify for the prize (as determined by an accurate bearing within half to one degree). Accordingly, this Act recognises the work of two Germans for their contribution to the lunar method: 'a set of lunar tables constructed by Tobias Mayer deceased, late Professor of Goetingen in Germany, upon the principles of gravitation laid down by Sir Isaac Newton; in the construction of which tables he was considerably assisted from theorems furnished by Professor Euler of the University of Berlin'. The Act directs £300 to be paid to Euler and £3000 to the widow of Tobias Mayer, upon condition that she submit the latest manuscript tables drafted by her deceased husband to the Commissioners.Finally, the Commissioners are instructed to control all future publication of Almanacs by issuing licenses to publishers - with a hefty fine of £20 per copy for those who infringe the law.

        Journals of the House of Lords

      1765. (PARLIAMENT).Journals of the House of Lords, Volumes XXXI-XXXVII.No place: No publisher, 1765-87.Seven volumes.Rare complete unbound volumes of the Journals of the House of Lords, covering the period of civil unrest in and eventual independence of the former English colonies in America.In 1765, ?"An Act for granting and applying certain Stamp Duties and other Duties, in the British Colonies and Plantations in America, towards further defraying the Expenses of defending, protecting, and securing, the same…?" was passed by Parliament, and led to the firing of the first salvos in the struggle for American independence. Soon the House of Lords found itself with ?"Papers from America laid before the House?" and testimony from English merchants whose exports suffered from American boycotts of English goods.Indeed, the entry ?"Papers from America laid before the House?" was one that would be made frequently in the Journals, as Parliament went on to pass the Quartering Act later in 1765, which required the billeting of British troops and led to rioting in New York, followed by the Townshend Acts in 1767, which imposed duties on glass, paints, lead, paper and tea imported into the colonies, and the Coercive Acts in 1774 (known in the U.S. as the Intolerable Acts), meant to quell rebellion at its source in Massachusetts.Although the Journals do not contain verbatim proceedings (such as are found in the Congressional Record), they do contain full texts of resolutions and of messages from and addresses by King George III. The House of Lords wished the American colonies to be a self-supporting a commercial venture, and its bills primarily are concerned with the importation of wheat, rice, corn, oak staves, cotton, tobacco and salted provisions (beef, pork, bacon, butter) without duties attached, and the taxation of exports to the American colonies such as tea. The Stamp Act, which taxed newspapers, customs documents, legal documents and licenses, was passed as a means of recovering the expenses involved in the seven-year French and Indian wars. When the colonials refused to pay the stamp tariffs, the issue became one of the right to impose taxation.In 1774, with the consideration of the Coercive Acts, the entries begin to take on a more political tone, as letters and papers regarding the ?"disturbances in North America?" are considered at length. Also important are the listings of papers relating to North America, in large part letters from governors and military commanders. In November 1774, George III opened a new session of Parliament by stating, ?"It gives Me much Concern that I am obliged, at the Opening of this Parliament, to inform you that a most daring Spirit of Resistance and Disobedience to the Law still unhappily prevails in the Province of The Massachusetts Bay, and has in divers Parts of it broke forth in fresh Violences of a very criminal Nature. These Proceedings have been countenanced and encouraged in other of My Colonies, and unwarrantable Attempts have been made to obstruct the Commerce of this Kingdom by unlawful Combinations.?"Richard Penn, who served for two years as the deputy-governor of Pennsylvania (the colony founded by his grandfather William), was questioned in November 1775 by House of Lords about the current state of unrest. ?"The Colonies, I believe, are inclined to acknowledge the Imperial Authority of Great Britain, but not in Taxation,?" noted Penn. In a last ditch effort to stem rebellion in the colonies, at the close of 1775 the House began its consideration of ?"An Act to prohibit all Trade and Intercourse with the Colonies of New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pensylvania [sic], The Three lower Counties on Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, during the Continuance of the present Rebellion within the said Colonies respectively,?" an act which was passed the following year.The Journals provide a fascinating timeline of the English response to the American uprising. Of great importance are the verbatim dissents, the vast majority of which are regarding American issues, evidence that the House of Lords was not merely an instrument of the sovereign, but was indeed concerned with the well-being of the inhabitants of the colonies: ?"Because we cannot, as Englishmen, as Christians, or as Men of common Humanity, consent to the Prosecution of a cruel Civil War, so little supported by Justice, and so very fatal in its necessary Consequences, as that which is now waging against our Brethren and Fellow Subjects in America. We have beheld, with Sorrow and Indignation, Session after Session, and notwithstanding repeated Warnings of the Danger, Attempts made to deprive some Millions of British Subjects of their Trade, their Laws, their Constitution, their mutual Intercourse, and of the very Food which God has given them for their Subsistence,?" one 1775 dissent noted.Dissents aside, the House was loathe to hear pro-American arguments: in February of 1775, it resolved that the pamphlet ?"The present Crisis with respect to America considered,?" printed in London for T. Becket, was libelous and ordered it burnt. (See Adams, American Controversy 75-110 and 75-111.)Despite the unrest in the colonies, the daily work of the House of Lords revolved mainly around bills for name changes, divorces, wrongful arrest, constructing bridges, road works, and the selling of land. As the war for American independence progressed, entries such as ?"Several Papers relating to American Prizes taken by His Majesty?'s Ships; together with a List thereof?" from February 1778 can be found, along with listings of new troops raised by Britain and their expenses, and debate regarding the billeting of Americans refused exit from England during the hostilities.After France signed a treaty with the fledgling United States in March 1778, it was moved ?"That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, to desire that His Majesty will be pleased to give Orders, that all His Majesty?'s Ships of War and Land Forces be immediately withdrawn from the Ports and Territories of the Thirteen revolted Provinces, and disposed of in such Manner as His Majesty in his Wisdom shall think best calculated for the Defense of the remaining Parts of the Empire,?" a suggestion which the House of Lords resolved in the negative. In February 1782, it was moved that ?"this House will… resolve itself into a Committee of the whole House, to enquire into the Causes of the great Loss which the Nation has sustained by the Surrender of the whole Army under the Command of Lieutenant General Earl Cornwallis, at York Town and Gloucester, in the Province of Virginia, as Prisoners of War,?" beginning a series of inquiries into the actions of the British Army and Navy.In March 1782, the House of Lords began deliberation on ?"An Act for the better detaining, and more easy Exchange of American Prisoners brought into Great Britain,?" signaling a move toward recognizing the United States, which occurred in June 1782, with ?"An Act to enable His Majesty to conclude a Peace or Truce with certain Colonies in North America,?" passed by both Houses of Parliament. The final volume offered here opens in November 1783 with consideration of ?"An Act for preventing certain Instruments from being required from Ships belonging to the United States of America, and to give His Majesty, for a limited Time, certain Powers for the better carrying on Trade and Commerce between the Subjects of His Majesty?'s Dominions and the Inhabitants of the said United States.?"Vol. XXXI: 1/10/1765-10/7/1767: 670 pp, published 1/6/1768; additional pp 109, 110, 175, 176, 505, 506, 469, 470.

        Miniaturporträt Kants, verso vom Künstler signiert ("Springer Pinx. 1765").

      [Königsberg], "1765".. Ovale Miniatur des großen Philosophen in Stutzperücke, gekleidet in ein braunes Wams (die Knöpfe mit Sternornament), Krawatte und Jabot. Gouache und Aquarell auf Pergament, ca. 85 x 73 mm, hinter Glas in zeitgenössischem vergoldetem Holzrahmen.. Langverschollene Miniatur Immanuel Kants, ursprünglich im Besitz des österreichischen Kantianers Wenzel Gottfried Graf von Purgstall (1773-1812), der den Philosophen persönlich kennenlernte und das Porträt 1794 bei einem Besuch in Königsberg erwarb. Das Bildnis gleicht bis in Details den bekannten Miniaturen Carle Vernets (1758-1836), deren Entstehungszeit mit ca. 1792/1795 angesetzt wird (vor dem Krieg Nachweise in der Altertumsgesellschaft Prussia und im Berliner Kaiser-Friedrich-Museum - heute Bode-Museum) und die möglicherweise sogar zum Teil Kopien nach dem vorliegenden darstellen. Vernets Fassung diente anschließend zahlreichen Stichen als Vorlage. - Rätsel gibt die unproblematisch zu lesende Datierung auf: Bereits Ferdinand Weinhandl hat für die vorliegende Miniatur, die er im Spetember 1941 auf Schloß Hainfeld (bei Feldbach, Steiermark) beim damaligen Besitzer, dem Frhrn. von Hammer-Purgstall, besichtigte, das Entstehungsjahr 1765 ausgeschlossen. Das Bildnis zeigt Kant eher sechzig- denn vierzigjährig, mit bereits durch Zahnverlust geschrumpftem Unterkiefer, auch kann der 1760 geborene Königsberger Miniaturist Friedrich Wilhelm Springer (gest. 1805; vgl. Thieme/B.) Kant unmöglich 1765 gemalt haben. "Ein anderer Maler desselben Namens läßt sich aber [...] weder in Königsberg noch sonstwo für jene Zeit nachweisen" (Weinhandl, S. 327). Der Frankfurter Anatom Hans Schreiber stellte für das Springer-Porträt eine "sehr viel lebhaftere [Hautspannung und Durchblutung] als bei den Vernet'schen Bildern" fest (S. 326), doch ist es freilich denkbar, dass Springer "Kant zur selben Zeit wie Vernet, nur jugendlicher gemalt habe" (S. 327). Unzweifelhaft datiert das Bild noch aus Kants Lebenszeit, sicherlich der zweiten Hälfte des 18. Jahrhunderts, wenn auch nicht eben 1765 (womit es sogar dem frühesten bekannten Porträt, dem Becker-Gemälde - nicht nach 1768 - vorausginge). Abgesehen von einem verschollenen Bildnis durch Fr. W. Senewaldt (datiert 1786) scheinen die allermeisten zu Kants Lebzeiten entstandenen Miniaturporträts auf Vernets Vorlage zurückzugehen, möglicherweise auch - durch dessen Vermittlung - auf das vorliegende Werk. - Kant-Ikonographie der Kant-Forschungsstelle Mainz, Nr. 71 (mit schwarz-weißer Abb.).
