        Don Juan de Espina en Madrid. Comedia que escribió [.] y se ha de representar a sus Majestades en el Coliseo del Buen Retiro, a expensas de la muy Noble y muy Leal Coronada Villa de Madrid, con motivo de celebrar los gloriosos, felicísimos Desposorios del Serenísimo Señor D. Carlos Príncipe de Asturias, y de la Serenissima Señora Dña. Luisa Princesa de Parma [.].

      [Madrid, s.i. n.a., c. 1765]. - Ejemplar en tafilete rojo con las armas de Carlos IV. Edición original de esta comedia Española que se sitúa en Madrid. Se imprimieron pocos ejemplares todos ellos destinados a personajes de la corte española. El ejemplar que presentamos por su bella encuadernación es uno de los ofrecidos como regalo por el Rey Carlos III. El argumento es el siguiente: "Don Juan de Espina, Sugeto estudioso, singularmente aplicado à apurar las diversiones Mathematicas, y tropelias fisicas en la oculta virtud de la Naturaleza; reside en Madrid con fama de Magico natural, logrando aplauso comun, por los singulares prodigios, que obra en su Arte." [Sigue] "Por su fama, unos le buscan sabio, quando otros le temen Echicero; pero Espina, por desahogo de la tareas de su estudio, le ocupa muchas veces en dar algunos chascos, no sin la juiciosa idéa de procurar en el disfraz de las burlas, las virtuosas, apreciables veras de favorecer á sus confidentes, corregir los necios, y doctrinar á los ignorantes." [Finaliza] "Son frequentes las transmutaciones que executa de objetos, casos, y lugares, con maravillosa vivacidad en las ilusiones; pero rezeloso de que alguna le huviese malquistado con el poder, abandona la Patria, y se establece en Milán." José de Cañizares (Madrid 1676 - 1750), dramaturgo conocido por sus comedias de figurón, imitó algunas de las piezas del teatro italiano y francés, pretendiendo acomodarlas al teatro antiguo español. 1 hoja, 203 páginas. Encuadernación de lujo original en tafilete rojo con armas de Carlos IV en el centro de ambos planos y orla de hierros sueltos, nervios y hierros dorados entre ellos, cortes dorados. Guardas originales en papel pintado haciendo aguas. Leves restauraciones sin apenas distinguirse. Original royal binding. 24x18 cm. Palau 42900. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Commentaries on the laws of England.

Modern half - morocco and cloth boards, spine gilt in 6 compartments, a.e.g. With the bookplate of Louis E. Goodman on the paste - downs. An excellent copy. PMM, 212. FIRST EDITION of the author's great history of English law. Blackstone (1723 - 70) was the first to make the law accessible to the common person. "Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. If the English constitution survived the troubles of the next century, it was because the law had gained a new popular respect, and this was due in part to the enormous success of Blackstone's work" (PMM). "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, in implanting in the profession a sound tradition of the historical development of the law. . . ."

        De sedibus et causis morborum per anatomen indagatis libri quinque...

      . Editio secunda. - Padua, Remondinim 1765, 2°, LXXXIV, 256, 388 pp., Portr., feiner Pergamenteinband d.Zt.; minimal fleckig, feines Exemplar.. "The study of pathology of the nervous system was initiated in the Eighteenth Century by Giovanni Battista Morgagni (1682-1771), a pioneer pathologist and professor of Padua. Morgagni collected case material of many years, finally publishing his classic &quote;De Sedibus&quote; (1761) when he was seventy-nine years old. This work consists of five books of letters or chapters in which Morgagni recorded the postmortem findings along whith the clinical case notes. This was the first time that such extensive material was brought together, and it is the true foundation of pathological anatomy." - The first book, &quote;Of Disorders of the Head&quote;, may be the earliest work on neuropathology. It is divided into fourteen letters or chapters. The first consists of cases of pain in the head. The next four are on apoplexy, which Morgagni divides into three classes - serous apoplexy, sanguinous apoplexy, and apoplexy that is neither serous nor sanguinous. It is in these chapters that Morgagni first presents the pathological evidence that the lesion in apoplexy is on the side opposite to the paralysis. This oberservation substantiated the theories of Porfoir du Petit, Wepfer and others back to at least Aretaeus. Morgagni indeed gave credit to his teacher Valsalva in the Seventeenth Century for having first demonstrated the lesion on the opposite side in apoplexy." - "The sixth chapter in De Sedibus is on saporific disorders, and the seventh and eighth are on phrenitis and delirium and on madness, melancholy and hydrophobia. The ninth and tenth chapters deal with cases of epilepsy or convulsions and convulsive movements. The eleventh chapter is on paralysis, the twelfth on hydrocephalus and the last two chapters are on disorders of the eyes and ears. In the latter chapter Morgagni demonstrates for the first time that intracranial suppuration could be a consequence of infection in the ear. Morgagni's work, a landmark in medicine and neurology, stimulated great interest in the morbid anatomy of the brain as a cause of both nervous and mental diseases." McHenry, S.129f. - "Between his Adversaria anatomica of 1719 and De sedibus, et causis morborum of 1761, Morgagni had not published any major works. But the latter, published when he was seventy-nine years of age, had been years in preparation, and constitutes a foundation of modern pathological anatomy. Vast in scope, it is one of the most fundamentally important works in the history of medicine. In it he reports in precise and exhaustive details his findings in nearly seven hundred autopsy dissections, introducing and insisting on the concept that diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of disease must be based on an exact understanding of the pathologic changes in the anatomic structures. It put the final route to the old humoral pathology. Morgagni's contribution to the understanding of disease may well rank with the contributions of Vesalius in anatomy and Harvey in Physiology" Heirs of Hippocrates No. 501 - Heirs of Hippocrates No. 502: This second edition of Morgagni's landmark work contains additions and corrections to the first edition, but it is by no means a rewriting. Morgagni strove always to make simple what could become complicated descriptions, and his Latin is utterly lucid. - Waller 6673; Osler 1178. - Garrison & Morton No.2734 (1st. Ed. 1761): Classical descriptions of mitral stenosis (Letter III) and heart block. - Garrison & Morton No.2885 (1st. Ed. 1762): An authentic case of angina pectoris is recorded by Morgagni; he observed it in 1707.

Centur. XII ET VLT. Halle Magdeburgicae 1765. With 100 handcoloured plates. Folio. [8] pp + plates. Bound in 20th century halfleatherbinding in old style with coloured label and richly gilt on spine. Binding signed Anker Kyster. * Johann Hieronymus Kniphof (24 February 1704, Erfurt - 23 January 1763) was a German physician and botanist.<br>He studied medicine at the Universities of Jena and Erfurt, becoming a professor of medicine at the latter institution in 1737. In 1745 he succeeded Andreas Elias Büchner (1701-1769) as director of the library at Erfurt, two years later being named dean to the faculty of medicine. In 1761 he was chosen as university rector. At Erfurt, he assembled a large and impressive herbarium, about which in 1733, he first published a work with the title of "Botanica in originali", (later releases known as "Botanica in Originali, seu Herbarium Vivum"). Considered to be Kniphof's magnum opus, it would eventually be published in several editions. It was renowned for employing a preparation/printing technique known as "nature printing", which at the time was a little understood process that Kniphof had mastered in order to imprint details of various botanical specimens.<br>The most interesting feature is the way the botanical plates were printed. The plants to be reproduced were dried, flattened and then carefully pressed on inked flat surface then the plants, which had in this way been inked, were pressed on thin but strong paper, which resulted in off-setting of the prominent inked parts. The representations taken from the original plants were then carefully hand colored. The result was excellant and these reproductions could certainly not be bettered by any graphic process. For each specimen used only about five prints could be made maximium due to the wear on each specimen. Thus thousands of specimens were prepared and used to make these prints. Because of the difficult way of printing only a few complete copies were produced. There only seem to survive 10 complete copies with all 1200 plates, including those in Germany, one in the British museum and one in the United States. Fischer #7, Nissen, 1076. (Zuckerartbooks)..

      London: Printed for S. Hooper, 1765 - The second edition, and the first edition with English text, of the "chief work in the English literature of fencing" (Castle, p. 212). Angelo's venerable School of Arms in London brought the French method of fencing to a wealthy and fashionable clientele. The school was run by successive Angelo generations until its closing in the early 20th century. The first edition of 1763 was printed in French only; this 1765 edition contains the same plates as the first edition with text in French and English. An edition entirely in English with reduced plates was published in 1787 Second edition, first edition with English text. Oblong folio. 47 engraved plates by Ruyland and Hall after J. Gruyn. English and French title-pages, dual-language text in two columns. Later 18th-century half speckled calf and marbled boards, spine in 6 compartments with raised bands, gilt in 4 compartments, contrasting morocco labels in the rest. Rebacked and recornered preserving spine, one label renewed, endsheets renewed, French title page worn and soiled with repair to verso, some soiling and light foxing throughout, lower portion of blank margin on last leaf repaired.

Gravelot, 2 Kupferstichvignetten im Text, unbeschnittenes Exemplar im weichen Pappband d. Zt. First edition of the author's interesting speculation of human skin and its many colours. It is here that Le Cat discerned the black deposits which he called "aethiops" in the nerve tissues of animals. - - "Claude Nicolas Le Cat's (1700-1768) treatise, like Mitchell's essay " An eassay upon the causes of the different colour of people in different climates" of 1744 , contradicts the traditional theory that bile is responsible for coloring human skin. Essentially, Le Cat's work is an extension of Malpighi's theory of skin color. From his experimental studies o the nerve cells of frogs and other animals (see Le Cat s Dissertation sur l'Existence et la Nature du Fluide des Nerfs et Son Action Berlin 1765), Le Cat discerned the presence of a pigment which he called "ethiops" (i.e. melanin). From this he deduced that human skin tissue must contain similar structures and that they may be the cause of skin color. Given me physiological association of "ethiops" with nerve tissue, it appeared to Cat that skin color could not possibly be determined by bile from the liver, pancreas, or gall bladder. While unclear of its origin and its role, he believed there was an intrinsic relation between these "ethiops" structures and the environment, noting that blacks had a greater amount than whites." Frank Spencer, Ecco Homo (1986), p.96 - Le Cat was also of the opinion that peoples' skin can change during their lifetime, and revert back the next generation. He details autopsies he performed where blacks become whites after being badly burned or whites that have become black 'accidental Negroes.' - - Le Cat (1700-1768) was surgeon to the archbishop of Rouen. He was a master of surgery, a lecturer on anatomy, and received the title of royal professor and demonstrator. He founded the Académie Royale des Science, Belles Lettres et Arts in Rouen, becoming its life-long secretary. Besides medical themes, his writings concern mathematics, architecture and philosophy. - - Sabin 39627. Hirsch-H. III 709. Cohen-Ricci 611. Lewin 301. Reynaud 299. Nicht bei Waller.

      London: printed for the Author, and sold by J. Millan, 1765. Octavo signed in 4s. Expertly bound to style in half 18th century russia over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment First edition of one "of the most accurate contemporary accounts of the interior of North America as it was when England took it from France" (Streeter). 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. He was sent to receive the capitulation of Western French posts in 1760; en route he met Pontiac, the Ottowa chief, and received his submission to English supremacy. Rogers was also present at the siege of Detroit by Pontiac 1763. Rogers exploits made him the most romantic and famous figure of the war in America, a reputation that was cemented with the publication of his Journal in 1765. The present work was published in the same year. "In the concise account of the several colonies, he mingles many particulars of the Indian nations, but its especial interest is to be found in the section of his volume devoted to the Customs, Manners, and Government of the Indians, pp. 205 to 264. These relations are the result of his own personal experience" (Field). Howes concurs with both Streeter and Field, noting that the work is based "largely on personal knowledge... [and that] this was the first geographical account of the American interior after England had wrested it from France, and, aside from those by Pittman and Hutchins, the most accurate of the period."
