        S. BERNARDO EN NUEVA VIZCAYA...[docket title]

      [Nuevo Viscaya. 1765].. Original hand-drawn map, 13 x 8 1/2 inches. Edges restored with minor loss to two corners, two small worm holes, remnants of old backing on verso. Manuscript key written in thin margins surrounding image. Colors (brown ink, green, red, and blue washes) remain bright and clean. Very good. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet. A delightful handcolored view of the village of San Bernardo in Nueva Viscaya, now part of Chihuahua and Durango, the first region of northern Mexico to be explored and settled by the Spanish. The image shows what appears to be the entire town, with a large church at the center, another towards the lower right, and scores of additional buildings with their land and fenced boundaries. All are drawn in uniform style and each is labeled with a number, some of which correspond to the text written in the margin. Two rivers border the settlement, the longer of which cuts through the lower left corner, while the other passes to the upper right. During the 17th and 18th centuries Nueva Viscaya was an essential staging area for missions and expeditions into New Mexico, and as such was a key Spanish colonial outpost. While many surviving similar views were executed by colonial officials with their trademark precision, the present plan was likely based on their example, but composed in a more provincial style. A lovely view of the northern reaches of Spanish colonial power in Mexico.

Monnet, the editor of this volume, was a French impresario and writer. "According to his memoirs (Supplément au roman comique, 1772) he led a colourful but dissolute life for some years, was imprisoned briefly in 1741 for publishing scurrilous literature (Les annales amusantes), and thereafter embarked on a series of theatrical enterprises... [He] has been credited with a number of librettos but only LÂ’inconséquente, ou Le fat dupé (1787) can be attributed to him with certainty. His edition of the Anthologie françoise (1765) is of historical value to the study of French folklore." Elisabeth Cook in Grove online

        Carte des variations de la Boussole et des vents généraux que l'on trouve dans les mers les plus frequentées

      Dépôt Génerale de la Marine, Paris 1765 - Large engraved chart measuring 620 x 930 mm., very good condition. Halley's great dream pursued by Bellin. Mid eighteenth century world map showing magnetic variation through the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.This map represents decades of work by several enlightenment luminaries. The scientific study of magnetic variation was initiated by Edmund Halley and William Dampier, who respectively commanded the first two English scientific voyages and took magnetic bearings at sea. In the early eighteenth century Halley published a world map of compass variations incorporating data from many sources and the map was re-published several times. At this time Halley introduced an important innovation into mapmaking with 'isogonic lines' representing equal magnetic values.However, as magnetic variation remains in constant flux Halley's chart inevitably became obsolete. In 1744 the Royal Society commissioned two of its members, William Mountain and James Dodson, to collate and compile some 50,000 individual magnetical observations gleaned from the logbooks of Royal Navy and East India Company officers. The project was so complex that both men ultimately conceded they did not believe variation came 'under the direction of any one general law'.This French map was prepared by Jacques-Nicolas Bellin and published by the Ministry of the Marine. As one of the pre-eminent geographers of pre-Revolutionary France, Bellin brings Halley's original project up to date to the year 1765. Bellin is remembered for the quality of his work and prodigious output (including the impressive atlases Le Neptune Français of 1735 and the Hydrographie Français of 1756-1765). Among other achievements, Bellin contributed to Diderot's Encyclopédie and was elected a member of the Royal Society in London.

        Coup d'oeil général sur la France, par M. Brion... pour servir d'introduction au tableau analytique et géographique de ce Royaume

      Paris: Grangé, Guillyn, Desnos, 1765. Quarto, numerous engraved maps and charts (see below); some preliminary foxing, an attractive copy in contemporary French mottled calf, spine gilt with crimson morocco label. An innovative eighteenth century atlas founded upon enlightenment principles, combining geographical and social information using novel methods.The atlas is the work of two eminent cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century, Royal geographer Louis Brion de la Tour and Parisian publisher Louis Charles Desnos. A wide range of statistical information - relating to the population, finances, and government of France - is here presented in inter-related charts and maps. The product is an atlas that expands beyond regular geography, so fulfilling the enlightenment ideal of joining diverse streams of knowledge into a lucid whole.The atlas was first published in 1763. This is an example of the significantly expanded later edition of 1766, containing a good number of maps not present in the first edition. New material includes the final section of road maps, tabulated for real-time use by travelers .In this revised edition the atlas is comprised of several discrete parts, each with engraved title pages. A full contents listing as follows:Introductory letterpress: title-page reading 'Coup d'oeil général sur la France', [16][4]pp.'Tableau analytique de la France...' engraved title, 33 plates (one large folding, remainder double-page).'Le petit Neptune François' engraved title, 3 double page plates of coastal districts, followed by large folding map captioned "La France divisée en ses LVIII provinces"'L'indicateur fidéle ou Guide de Voyageurs' engraved title, double-page ornamental dedication to Cassini de Thury, followed by 19 maps and charts; followed by letterpress prospectus and both alphabetic place names supplements (paginated 8,10pp.).

        1765 RARE Timberlake ‘A DRAUGHT OF THE CHEROKEE COUNTRY’ Early Tennessee Map FRAMED [Unusually Strong Impression]

      London: Henry Timberlake, 1765. 1st Edition. Other Other. Very Good. (Maps) TIMBERLAKE, Henry. A DRAUGHT OF THE CHEROKEE COUNTRY on the West Side of the Twenty Four Mountains, Commonly Called 'Over the Hills'; Taken by Henry Timberlake, when he was in that Country in March 1762. Likewise the Names of the Principal or Head men of each Town, and what Number of Fighting Men they send to War. London: Henry Timberlake, 1765. Published in ‘The Memoirs of Lieut. Henry Timberlake, (Who accompanied the Three Cherokee Indians to England in the Year 1762)’. This original map measures 15.25 x 9.25 in.; framed piece measures 26 x 20 in. Hand-colored. An unusually strong impression on unfolded, heavy laid-paper. Faintly foxed. Very Good condition. Map indicates all the Cherokee villages on the lower Little Tennessee River and provides important demographic information about village sizes, populations, and leaders. This map was used by archaeologists in the 1970s during the Tellico Archaeological Project and has been hailed as remarkably accurate. Though one of the best contemporary accounts of the 18th-century Cherokee, Timberlake’s ‘Memoirs’ was not a great success in its time, making this a VERY SCARCE piece. Henry Timberlake (1730-1765) was born in Hanover County Virginia. He joined the Virginia Militia at the outset of the French & Indian War in 1756. He was later commissioned as an Ensign. After an undistinguished role in the action around Fort Duquesne and Pittsburg, he participated in the campaign against the Cherokee in 1761, where he gained a knowledge of the Overhill country of Tennessee at Fort Robinson and accompanied two other soldiers on a trip to the Cherokee Country, down the Holston River to the French Broad River and the Little Tennessee River. The trip was intended as a show of good faith in connection with a peace treaty and resulted in his travelling extensively among the Cherokee, before returning to Virginia with several Indian Chiefs.

        Enchiridion canonico-morale de confessario ad inhonesta, & turpia solicitante: nec non de decretis, & constitutionibus pontificiis ad hoc nefarium crimen exterminandum emanantis

      Mexico: ex typographia editioni Bibliothecae Mexicanae destinata 4to (20 cm; 7.75"). [14] ff., 217 pp.. 1765 A theological and legal treatise on confessors and confession and the sacrament of penance with the emphasis on abuse of the confessional by priests. Telling a priest one's moral and legal transgressions empowers the weak or corrupt priest to then blackmail the parishioner for money or sex or other "favors." Father Vilaplana (1712?-63), a native of Benimarfull, Valencia, Spain, was a Franciscan, a university lecturer in theology, and an "examiner" for the Inquisition. His handbook gives examples of abuses, lays out the pertinent canon laws and papal edicts, and has a section of questions to be asked of accused priests during court proceedings. The work also discusses punishment and other disciplines that the crimes demand. Since abuse of the confessional fell under the authority of the Inquisition, this work is de facto a manual for Inquisitors. This is the "Editio secunda locupletior in paucis." The Bibliotheca Mexicana was the private press of the great bibliographer, writer, and secular cleric Juan Jose de Eguiara y Eguren. Contemporary limp vellum, rodent-gnawed along several edges with a small loss of vellum. Front endpapers with loss to silverfish. Text unwormed and clean.

        The School of Art, or, Most compleat drawing-book extant : consisting of an extensive series of well chosen examples, selected from the designs of those eminent masters Watteau, Boucher, Bouchardon, Le Brun, Eisen, &c. &c., engraved on sixty folio copper plates and performed in a method which expresses the manner of handling the chalk and the management of harmony of its tincts in real drawings

      London: printed for John Bowles; Robert Sayer, and Carington Bowles, 1765. WITHOUT TITLE-PAGE and text but with all plates. Sixty folio crayon copperplates printed in orange. Folio. Modern cloth spine and tips, marbled boards. Fine. "Smith is generally credited with popularizing crayon manner engraving in England, mainly because he executed a series of plates in this style from designs by Watteau, Boucher, Edmé Bouchardon, and others-including 12 Heads Selected from Monsr. Le Brun's 'Passions of the Soul', printed for Robert Sayer-which were all published together on sixty folio copperplates by John and Carrington Bowles and Sayer as The School of Art, or, Most Compleat Drawing-Book Extant (1765). There had been no market for the technique when it was first used by Pond, but by the 1760s the English had developed a taste for French drawings. The preface to Smith's drawing book indicates that it appeared not only to fill that market, but also, by placing less emphasis on proportion and perspective and containing more examples of landscapes, rococo cartouches, and flower drawings, to respond to the growing demand for drawing books which catered to the new, often female, type of amateur whose numbers were beginning to increase around this time."

        Ionnis Wallisii grammatica linguae Anglicanae Edition sexta

      London: G. Bowyer & A. Millar, 1765. 8vo, xxxv, 281, [2]. With engraved portrait and HollisÕs catalogue of the literature of liberty. Smoke print of binderÕs emblem Liberty on final leaf. Red morocco with gilt figure of Britannia on upper cover, an owl on the lower cover, vertical gilt lettering and caduceus on backstrip. Bottom joint cracked, top joint starting. Marbled endpapers and edges with bookplates of two former owners on front pastedown and the signature ?'E. Gordon Duff?" on the verso of the flyleaf. Inscription on second blank leaf reads: ?'This book was printed at the expense of Mr Holles, who sent some copies to me abroad in the year 1766 for the use of learned foreigners. E. [signature cut out] See BowyerÕs Anecdotes.?" The sixth edition of WallisÕs grammar intended for foreign learners was one of several works edited and distributed by Thomas Hollis for ?'the protection and advancement of English liberty?" (DNB). The smoke print records one of the emblematic tools cut by Thomas Pingo for HollisÕs bindings, the second set used after the first was destroyed by fire in 1764. Rothschild 2731. ?'A most correct and elegant edition with a portrait of Wallis by Cipriani?"(Lowndes 2817). The signature is likely to be that of misanthropic English bibliographer, Edward Gordon Duff (1863-1924), whose ?'scientific?" approach to bibliography led to scathing attacks on his colleagues, and to new standards of accuracy in his profession (DNB). The MS note refers to Vol. 9 of BowyerÕs Literary Anecdotes (1812) which observes ?'To this Volume is prefixed a Portrait of Dr. Wallis, finely copied by Basire from that drawn by Cipriani, for Mr. HollisÕs Edition of the DoctorÕs English Grammar.?"

Ohne Ort, 1741. 127 Seiten. - Die Württembergischen Landstände bestanden aus Vertretungen der Geistlichkeit und des Bürgertums (der Adel war mit der Reformation ausgeschieden). Im Zuge zunehmender zentralistischer Machtbestrebungen gab es auch in Württemberg unter Carl Eugen zunehmende Versuche des Landesfürsten, die Position und Rechte der sogenannten Landschaft zu beschneiden, der Landtag wurde im gesamten 18. Jahrhundert nur zweimal eingebrufen. Wohl unter Federführung des aktiven oppositionellen Johann Jacob Moser wird in dem vorliegenden Buch auf die Altwürttembergische Verfassung und die verbrieften Rechte der Landschaft Bezug genommen, wie sie 1482 im Münsinger Vertrag und 1514 im Tübinger Vertrag festgeschrieben waren. Der künftige Verlauf der Geschichte zeigt, dass diese Bemühungen der Ständevertretungen erfolglos blieben. Mit dem unter Napoleon neu entstandenen Königreich Württemberg setzte der König 1805 die alte Verfassung eigenmächtig außer Kraft. Zwar mußte er nach längerem Verweigern 1819 in einer neuen Verfassung eine ständische Vertretung von Adel und Bürgertum aufnehmen, in der realen Machtausübung hat sich die selbstherrliche Politik der Könige im 19. Jahrhundert aber ebenso wenig vom Willen des Volkes beeindrucken lassen wie die später demokratisch legitimierte Politaristokratie im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert (wie die jüngeren Ereignisse in Stuttgart allzu deutlich zeigen). - Die letzten ca. 200 Seiten sowie die 3 Beibindungen und Register gebräunt und mit gebräunten Feuchtigkeitsrändern.

        The Hymns, Anthems & Tunes with the Ode used at the Magdalen Chapel Set for the Organ, Harpsichord, Voice, German-Flute or Guitar

      Printed for C. and S. Thompson, London 1765 - A poorly preserved copy of a scarce edition of the Magdalen Chapel (London) Hymn Book. Worldcat lists only two copies, one in Magdalen College Library Oxford and the other in King's College (London). The work is undated but OLIS gives 1765 (?), the same date suggested for the similarly undated Thorowgood edition. A calligraphic ownership inscription on the recto of the engraved frontispiece was done in October 1779. Frontispiece engraving of "A Magdalen in Her Uniform" with Magdalen Chapel in the background (cf the Thorowgood edition without the building and the figure reversed), lower right quarter torn with loss of part of image and title, left margin cropped recto with ownership inscription of Sophia Taylor, October 29th 1779. Title page soiled, remounted, lower margin cropped; index (remounted),1-2 torn at gutter margin, 11-12 top corner missing without loss of text, 35-36 frayed and remounted with loss of 1 letter of verse 3 of the Hymn for Christmas. OLIS lists 37 pages but this does not concur with the index of this copy where the last page is 36 (index may then be the 37th page) Late 19th century half leather with marbled boards. A few pencil notes giving name of composer. Damp-stained at gutters and fore edges, particularly at the beginning and end. Founded in 1758 as an institution to help reform prostitutes, most of the organists in the chapel were women who lived there in an atmosphere likened to that of a nunnery by contemporary observers.

François-André Philidor (1726-1795) was not only the most powerful chess player of his day and, for a time and its unofficial world champion, he was also a musician and composer of over 20 comic operas, which, though now rarely performed, enjoyed a notable success at the time and are still occasionally recorded. One of his most popular operas was Le Sorcier (1764), which appears here bound with songs excerpted from two others of his works, in the company of pieces by two of his contemporaries, Egidio Duni and Rober Desbrosses.
