London: Printed for the Author, 1765. FIRST EDITION. viii, 160pp. plus folding plate and facsimile of folding map. Period full calf leather with gilted spine label. Housed in a custom clamshell box with leather label on spine. Internally clean. Near fine. Timberlake was a British officer who spent considerable time with the Cherokees in Georgia and eastern Tennessee in the early 1760s, during the turbulent period of frontier strife at the end of the French and Indian War. He later accompanied a delegation of Cherokees to London. His account, here in the first edition, is one of the best of the period, and one of the few accounts of the war with the Cherokees in the southern colonies. The map (provided in facsimile in this copy) is an important cartographic work in its own right. The folding plate is "A Curious secret Journal taken by the Indians out of the Pocket of a French Officer they had kill'd." "May very well be considered the Number One book in any Tennessee library, since it is the first book ever written concerning activities in the area now embraced in this state" - Horn. "Represents the earliest and one of the historically significant works relative to the Cherokee Indians and their activities.in original condition, ranks as a most desirable rare Tennessee book" - Allen.

VOLTAIRE
A Geneve, aux dépens de l'auteur (recte Amsterdam, Marc Michel Rey). Cm. 18,5, pp. (12) 380. Legatura del tempo in piena pergamena rugida con titoli in oro su doppio tassello in pelle rossa al dorso. Lievi fioriture e sporadiche macchiette. Esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Verosimilmente rara prima edizione di una delle più rilevanti opere di Voltaire (1694-1778), pubblicata dal grande illuminista parigino sotto lo pseudonimo dell'abate Bazin. La grande diffusione nel Settecento certificò l'interesse per questa nuova disciplina filosofica che involontariamente Voltaire fondò: con quest'opera per la prima volta la locuzione "filosofia della storia" compare nel lessico filosofico. Se ne avvarranno a piene mani autori come Herder, Lessing, Kant e Hegel. Si tratta di una straordinaria rassegna storico-antropologica sulla storia dei popoli antichi occidentali e orientali (su questa scia Herder nel 1776 pubblicò "Auch eine Philosophie der Geschichte"), con singolari riferimenti a geroglifici egizi, idolatria, oracoli, sibille, templi, magia, sacrifici umani e misteri popolari. In quest'opera Voltaire, secondo Croce diede "battaglia alle superstizioni, diffondendo in tutto il mondo la luce della ragione". Il bibliografo Theodore Besterman (Some eighteenth-century Voltaire editions unknown to Bengesco, 1968, p. 71) afferma che questa edizione Rey di Amsterdam (che stampò anche altre prime edizioni di Rousseau e Voltaire) potrebbe essere la prima delle sette stampate nel 1765 recensite da lui e Bengesco.

Artist: Bellin S; issued in: Paris; date: ca, 1765. technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 54 x 87; - description: Map shows the island of Madagascar, on inset map also the coast of Africa. Madagascar- officially the Republic of Madagascar , and previously known as the Malagasy Republic, is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa. Madagascar was an important transoceanic trading hub connecting ports of the Indian Ocean in the early centuries following human settlement. The written history of Madagascar began with the Arabs, who established trading posts along the northwest coast by at least the 10th century. From about 1774 to 1824, Madagascar gained prominence among pirates and European traders, particularly those involved in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Many European sailors were shipwrecked on the coasts of the island, among them Robert Drury, whose journal is one of the few written depictions of life in southern Madagascar during the 18th century. The wealth generated by maritime trade spurred the rise of organized kingdoms on the island, some of which had grown quite powerful by the 17th century. Among these were the Betsimisaraka alliance of the eastern coast and the Sakalava chiefdoms of Menabe and Boina on the west coast. The Kingdom of Imerina, located in the central highlands with its capital at the royal palace of Antananarivo, emerged at around the same time under the leadership of King Andriamanelo.; - vita of the artist: Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was the first Ingenieur … [Click Below for Full Description]

WHYTT, M.D. F.R.S., Robert. Observations on the Nature, Causes, and Cure of Those Disorders which have been Commonly called Nervous Hypochondriac, or Hysteric, To which are prefixed some Remarks on the Sympathy of the Nerves. Edinburgh: Printed for T. Becket, and P. Du Hondt, and J. Balfour, 1765. First edition. Octavo (7 15/16 x 4 3/4 inches; 202 x 121 mm). viii, [8], 520 pp. Contemporary full calf. Boards ruled in gilt. Spine elaborately stamped in gilt with tan spine label, lettered in blind. All edges speckled red. Hinges cracked but firm. Spine chipped at head and tail. Corners and edges a bit rubbed and bumped. Back board with a few chips. Sporadic dampstaining along top margin. Final few leaves and endpapers with some toning and staining. Overall very good. "Whytt's interest in the sensibility and co-ordination of the nerves led to a major work on nervous diseases in 1764. It has been suggested that this work helped to make 'nervous disease' a fashionable term, replacing 'the vapours'--a remnant of humoral pathology. Whytt's doctrine was that the part of the soul resident in the sensory nerves was so bound by the laws of union of body and soul that it allowed each nerve to transmit only its own kind of stimulus to the brain and spinal cord. Here the soul, acting as a kind of common sensory agent, redirected the stimulus to appropriate motor nerves. This accounted for the 'sympathy' of the parts of the body, many of them later recognized to be under the control of the sympathetic nervous system." (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography).

BARCLAY, Robert
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. The standard exposition on the principles of Quakerism! Robert Barclay was a 17th-century Scottish Quaker and considered one of the most important Quaker authors. His most important work, 'An Apology for the True Christian Divinity,' is often thought to be "the most impressive theological writings of the century and often marked by the eloquence of lofty moral convictions." (Garnet, 226). 'Apology' was written to be an elaborate statement for the Quakers to hold certain religious fundamentals which were outlined in one of Barclay's earlier works, the 'Theses.' According to the DNB, "Barclay's great book, 'The Apology,' is remarkable as the standard exposition of the principles of his sect, and is not only the first defense of those principles by a man of trained intelligence, but in many respects one of the most impressive theological writings of the century." A rare 1765 edition of Barclay's 'Apology.' This edition is the eighth overall English printing of this work but the first published by Baskerville. [Attributes: First Edition]

LEEUWEN, Engelhard August Baron van.
, . . Fascinating and graphically rich military manuscript in German with 49 colour-coded plans of infantry exercises for the Imperial Royal Austrian army, based on the manual Militaire Regulament für gesammte Kaiserl. Königliche Cavalerie-Regimenter in Betreff des Exercitii zu Pferd und zu Fuss (published by Trattner in 1765 with only 9 engraved plates). The present plans can be considered a companion to Trattner's publication, containing instructions for the placement, positions and exercises of the various regiments, battalions and companies of the army: the first and second grenadier company, "Leib-Compagnie" and the companies of "Knor Senior", Wappler, Neumüller, Dichtelt, Major Engelhard, etc. This Major Engelhard is clearly the Obrist-Wachtmeister Baron von Engelhard, named on the title-page, for whom the present manuscript was produced. Engelhard August Baron van Leeuwen (Ingolstadt 1710-? ca. 1795) was named Obrist-Wachtmeister in 1751 and General-Major in 1766, when he joined the Austrian General Staff. He retired in 1793 and must have died soon after.With 6 plans torn out (1, 24, 32, 33, 42 and 46) and the border at the foot of plan 38 torn off (not affecting the plan), but otherwise in good condition. Binding rubbed, spine damaged and restored (most of the gold lost). Remarkable colour formation plans for infantry exercises in the Imperial army.

Condorcet, Marie Jean Antoine Nicolas Caritat. - Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie
Paris: de l’ Impremerie de Didot, 1765. 8 Blatt, 92 Seiten. Marmorierter Pappband 16 x 21 cm Sein erstes Werk. Einzige Ausgabe, sehr selten. Marie Jean Antoine Nicolas Caritat, Marquis de Condorcet (1743-1794) war ein französischer Philosoph, Politiker und Mathematiker der Aufklärung. Er trat 1790, kurz nach der Verkündung der Menschenrechte und der Bürgerrechte, vehement dafür ein, diese auch den Frauen zu gewähren. In seinem am 3. Juli 1790 veröffentlichten Essay Sur l'admission des femmes au droit de cité sprach er sich für die Einführung des Frauenwahlrechts aus. Darüber hinaus trat er für die Gleichberechtigung von schwarzen Menschen verbunden mit der Abschaffung der Sklaverei und für den Freihandel ein. Condorcet erhielt zunächst eine Ausbildung am Jesuitenkolleg in Reims und am Cllege Mazarin in Paris. 1765 veröffentlichte Condorcet die Arbeit Essai sur le calcul intégral. In dieser Schaffensphase publizierte er mehrere wichtige mathematische Arbeiten, so 1772 eine weitere zur Integralrechnung. Im selben Jahr lernte Condorcet den französischen Ökonomen Turgot kennen, der ihn zwei Jahre später (1774) unter Ludwig XV. zum Generalinspekteur der staatlichen Münze ernannte. Diese Stellung bekleidete er bis 1791, jedoch nach der Entlassung Turgots im Jahre 1776 eher widerwillig. Seine wichtigsten wissenschaftlichen Beiträge waren seine Arbeiten zur Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und zur mathematischen Philosophie, ferner zur Analysis und zum Dreikörperproblem (1768). Entscheidend für die Entwicklung der Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie war seine 1785 veröffentlichte Abhandlung Essa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spanish manuscript account written in Argentina in 1765 reporting affairs concerning colonial South America, including the fate of the famous ship "La Purissima Concepcion", lost at Tierra del Fuego, and arrangements to expel the Portuguese from Brazilian regions. Anonymous report informing that an expeditionary force of 1100 well armed left Charcas in upper Peru (today Bolivia) to drive the Portuguese out of the Brazilian regions of Cuiabá and Mato Grosso. The author comments that war preparations in La Plata Region were such that it seemed that the most terrible war was going to be fought. All men capable of carrying arms were being recruited and trained, all army positions were completed and ready to get rid of the Portuguese ("aqui tudo es aparatos de Guerra, como se estubieramos en la mas terrible; se alistam, y disciplinam en el exercito moderno quantos son capazes de llevar las Armas, y ttodos los puestos estam ttomados, para libertarmos de los Portugueses.)". Furthermore the author reports on schooner Sevillana that had just arrived to Montevideo (after a scale at Santa Catalina), and on schooners Carmen, Santa Gertrudes, Principe y San Ignacio. Then, the writer also comments on the market price of some merchandise including silk and wool.

After a victorious expedition to relieve Fort Pitt at the outbreak of the Pontiac War, Colonel Bouquet entered the Ohio territory and ended the hostilities without further significant fighting. Bouquet had fought in America for eight years, and his successful adaptation of the guerilla tactics necessary for wilderness warfare gained the respect of his Native American foes. In 1765 he won the release of hostages and put an end to the Indian attacks on the western frontier. Bouquet died of a fever in September 1765, and Smith prepared this account of his service from Bouquet's own notes and journals./// John Peter Gabriel Muhlengerg's Copy Signed fully to the title page dated Lübeck 176'.

MOUNT ATHOS]
1765. 8vo-sized woodcut (267 x 178 mm), the central image within woodcut border; five-line legend in Greek at foot; lightly browned, but in excellent condition. A VERY RARE DEVOTIONAL WOODCUT SHOWING AN ICON OF A SAINT CAST IN COPPER, FOR VENERATION AT THE EASTERN ORTHODOX MONASTRY OF KONSTAMONITOU ON MOUNT ATHOS IN GREECE. Commissioned by Abbot Gabriel of Vatopedi, and financed by Athanasios Alexiou of Grabovo, the icon was displayed at Konstamonitou, situated in the norther part of the Holy Mountain. ‘Artistic tradition on Mt Athos is usually associated with painted icons and murals. There is however another artistic practice, a more ‘humble’ one, underrated and unknown to most. It is the art of printmaking – mainly copper engravings and a few woodcuts. It is an art that flourished from the 17th c. until the end of the 19th, although some woodcuts may be of an earlier date . Prints are of significant importance to Athonite history, but also to contemporary Greek art history. Let us only mention that the first teacher of engraving in the school of Fine Arts in Athens (1843-1865), was an Athonite engraver, the monk Agathaggelos Triantafyllou. This tradition came gradually to an end with the introduction of lithography. Later on modern offset printing gave the final blow to the engraving tradition on Mt. Athos. ‘Religious Orthodox engravings often constituted the prayer icons for poor people, or of those unable to commission a hand painted icon; they have been justly called "paper icons". There are still some examples of using such a print in a chapel iconostasis or private … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLACKSTONE, WILLIAM
Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1765-1769. 4to. Four volumes. Two tables (one folding) in volume two. Contemporary mottled calf, spines gilt, red and black morocco labels. Joints of first volume cracked but secure, minimal repairs to joints, minor wear and foxing. A splendid, tight set in a wonderful period binding. First edition of Blackstone’s Commentaries, a monument of the Anglo-American legal and political system and one of the key influences on the thought of the Founding Fathers and the shaping of the Constitution. “All our formative documents—the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Federalist Papers, and the seminal decisions of the Supreme Court under John Marshall—were drafted by attorneys steeped in Sir William Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England. So much was this the case that the Commentaries rank second only to the Bible as a literary and intellectual influence on the history of American institutions” (Robert Ferguson). Blackstone’s impact on American political and legal thinking was profound and immediate. In 1775 Edmund Burke observed that nearly as many copies of Blackstone’s Commentaries had been sold in America as in England. Thomas Jefferson observed that Blackstone’s Commentaries were “the most lucid in arrangement which had yet been written, correct in its matter, classical in its style, and rightfully taking its place by the side of the Justinian institutes.” A set of Blackstone’s Commentaries is a cornerstone of any library of the history and thought of the Founding Fathers.

Dummer Jeremiah
J. Almon opposite Burlington-House in Piccadilly. 88pp. (8vo) 20x12.2 cm (7¾x4¾) recent quarter leather with raised bands over marbled boards; red leather label with gilt title on front cover. Clean, crisp copy. Third London Edition. Intending to be a theologian, Dummer received in 1703 a doctorate from the University of Utrecht. Around 1708 he left theology to pursue a career in politics. Appointed as agent for the Province of Massachusetts Bay, Dummer held this position from 1710 until 1721 and served a similar role for the colony of Connecticut. When Burges was appointed Governor to replace Dudley, Dummer and co-agent Jonathan Belcher bribed Burges with 1,000 pounds to resign his commission without leaving England, and then proposed Colonel Samuel Shute as Dudley's successor, with Dummer's brother William as his lieutenant governor. Published in 1721 in London and Boston, A Defense of the New-England Charters, was an incredibly important work that defended the charters of New England, then under threat of annulment. Dummer made a well written, logical, compelling case. Dummer's work was the chief influence that protected the Charters. 'Yet when the liberties of one's country are threaten'd, it's still more difficult to be silent.' The New England colonies had Dummer to thank for the continuation of their charters. Other printings appeared in Boston (1721, 1745 and 1765) The pamphlet was considered by John Adams to be so important that it was revived and republished before the American Revolution. Photographs and further details about the condition of the book can be obta … [Click Below for Full Description]
