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.

FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST GENERAL HISTORY OF NEW JERSEY and with 18th century American inscriptions. "It has always deservedly been considered a standard work, and is still the main source of information regarding the history of West Jersey. It contains much matter illustrative of the relations which existed between New York and New Jersey" (Church). Howes would call this the second issue, with date punctuated, though it has since been effectively argued that the two title-pages were printed simultaneously on a half sheet and bound up without priority (Felcone).

Arrieta, Domingo Pedro de.
[Mexico]: Impressa en la Imprenta del real, y mas antiguo de San Ildefonso, 1765. 4to (19 cm, 7.75" ). [13] ff., 34 pp.; illus. Arrieta, a member of the Franciscan Order, preached this sermon in the main Franciscan monastery in Mexico on 4 October 1765. Beristain informs us that "Arrieta (Fr. Domingo) natural de México, donde profesó el Orden de Predicadores á 3 de Julio de 1752. Fué lector de teología, maestro de su Provincia, doctor de la Universidad, notario y comisario de la Inquisición; y en un libro MS. que tengo á la vista de las «Profesiones de los religiosos de la Provincia de Santiago», se lee esta nota: «insigne decretalista y muy virtuoso»." The text is in Spanish, printed in roman type with side- and shouldernotes; the occasional phrase or word in Latin is set in italic. The dedication to Thomas Aquinas, in verse with sidenotes, has above it a => copper-engraved portrait of Aquinas, in this copy printed "au sanguine." The licenses come next, followed by two poems by friends of Arrieta. The sermon is on the role of St. Francis in advancing the cause of Catholicism and veneration of Christ, and being an example to all who seek heaven. We locate only two published works by Arrieta, this and a novena. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only four U.S. libraries reporting ownership (JCB, Bancroft, Penn, NYPL).

LAVOISIER, (ANTOINE-LAURENT). - EMBODYING LAVOISIER'S QUANTITATIVE METHOD, HIS FIRST PAPER.
1765. Paris, L'Imprimerie Royale, 1768. 4to. Extract from "Mémoires fe Mathematique et de Physique, Présentés à l'Academie des Sciences par divers Savans", Tome V. With tittlepage to vol. 5. Pp. 341-357. Clean and fine. ¶ First appearance of Lavoisier's FIRST PUBLISHED CHEMICAL PAPER introducing quantitative methods in chemistry, and in which he for the first time brought a hydrometer in use to measure the specific gravities of components of a chemical solutions. Lavoisier defended the originality of his approach in the following words: "It is to the art of combination that the knowledge of the specific gravities of fluids can bring most light. This aspect of chemistry is much less advanced than we thought, we possess barely the rudiments of it." "This first paper, which in so many respects embodies the quantitative methods Lavoisier was to employ in his later work, had in fact been largely anticipated by others, notably by Marggraf, who had already discovered the composition of gypsum and shown that it contained water (phlegm). Yet Lavoisier's work was more through; and his paper, his first contribution to the Academy of Sciences (read to the Academy on 25 February 1765), appeared in 1768. (The paper offered). - Lavoisier's earliest chemical investigation, his study of gypsum, was mineralogical in character; begun in the autumn of 1764, it was intended as the first paper in a series devoted to the analysis of mineral substances. This systematic inventory was to be carried out, not by the method of J. H. Pott "who exposed minerals to the action of fire" but by reactions in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Turner, Richard
London and Worcester: S. Crowder and S. Gamidge (1765, 1766, 1765), 1765. Hardcover. Good. Three volumes bound in one, first edition of the first and third titles, second edition of "A View of the Earth", quarto size, [160] pp., illustrated with maps and globes. Following his matriculation from Magdalen Hall, Oxford in 1748, Richard Turner (1720-1791), English clergyman and educational writer, became chaplain to the countess dowager of Wigton, and in 1754 was instituted vicar of Elmley Castle in Worcestershire; in June of the same year he was appointed rector of Little Comberton. Turner was the author of a number of educational texts, including "The Young Gauger's Best Instructor" and the first edition of one of the present works, "A View of the Earth", which appeared in 1762. The present copy includes the first edition of his introductions to trigonometry and astronomy, both published in 1765; later works included a similar volume on geometry and a study of education. The maps in the Geography volumes include a double-hemisphere frontispiece and maps of the continents of Europe, Asia, North America, South America, and Africa by John Gibson; the "Astronomical Clock" on page 41 of the "A View of the Heavens" is lacking the printed volvelle used to determine the hour of night from the position of the stars.

The rare auction catalogues describing the important collections of books, manuscripts, prints, drawings and paintings formed by Abbé Favier at Lille. The great treasure of this extensive, but little-known, provincial French library was a copy, on paper, of the Gutenberg Bible (lot 1), which realized 2,025 frs, only 75 frs less than the Gaignat copy on vellum four years later; its subsequent fate appears to be unknown (see De Ricci, p. 33, no. 44 who lists it among the "exemplaires perdus"). The other outstanding feature of Favier's collection was his group of works on the history of the Netherlands, including Lille (lots 4,768-5,216) which Peignot praises as "presque complète." "Ces deux volumineux catalogues attestent le goût et les recherches immenses de l'abbé Favier: on remarquoit surtout dans sa bibliothèque une collection presque complète des ouvrages relatifs à l'histoire des Pays-Bas et à l'histoire de Lille.

L'Isle (Delisle), Joseph-Nicolas de and Alexandre Guy Pingré.
Paris, (colophon: J. Th. Herissant), 1765. 4to. (2), 44, (1) pp. With woodcut vignette on title-page, and 6 engraved folding plans (16 x 12 to 23.5 x 25 cm). 19th century half sheepskin, marbled endpapers. First edition of a description of Beijing, illustrated with six accurate plans. The French cartographer and astronomer Joseph-Nicolas de L'isle (1688-1768) had been corresponding about Chinese astronomy and geography with Jesuit missionaries for more than 30 years, collecting a vast amount of valuable information. The Jesuit father Patouillet asked him to compose a map of Beijing, based on these memoirs, to illustrate a description of the city he was preparing. Unfortunately, Patouillet was unable to complete his description, and De L'isle, assisted by the French astronomer and geographer Alexandre Guy Pingré (1711-96), continued and finished it. Astronomical observations helped them to determine the position of Beijing. The work starts with a description of the foundation of the city, the palace, other buildings and the suburbs, followed by some observations on the Li, also called the Chinese mile: the traditional Chinese unit of distance. - Some leaves slightly browned, some spots throughout and one plate with a small tear in the margin just touching the image. Binding slightly rubbed along the corners. A good copy, only slightly trimmed. Cordier (Sinica) 210f. Morrison II, 67. Löwendahl 537 (lacking 1 plan). Lust 187. [Attributes: First Edition]

The antique bindings with a little expected age or rubbing to the leather but with nice strong hinges, sound and sturdy, the textblock lightly aged, clean and unspotted and still quite fresh, the plates all present and fine. A HANDSOME EARLY SET OF SMOLLETT'S CERVANTES, though called the third edition this is more accurately a reprint of the second, which was the first to be printed in this format. Smollett's is one of the best-known translations of the work and here it is accompanied by a wonderful collection of illustrations. The preliminary matter in the first volume contains a long biography of Cervantes written by Smollett. DON QUIXOTE ranks among the greatest literary works of Western Civilization.

Wohl Wien, um 1765. 110 SS., (4 w. Bll.). Lateinische Handschrift auf Papier (Abschrift). Interimsbroschur. Dreiseitiger Rotschnitt. 8vo. Zeitgenössische Abschrift der Apologie Kollárs, des großen slowakisch-ungarischen Historikers und Sprachgelehrten, der als aufklärerischer Berater Maria Theresias den Widerspruch des konservativen ungarischen Adels wie auch des Klerus hervorrief. In seiner Schrift "De originibus et usu perpetuo potestatis legislatoriae circa sacra apostolicorum regum Ungariae" ("Von den Anfängen und dem immerwährenden Gebrauche der gesetzgebenden Gewalt in geistlichen Dingen seitens der Apostolischen Könige Ungarns", 1764) verteidigte er das Recht der Habsburger, im ungarischen Teil des Reiches bindende Vorschriften in kirchlichen Dingen und sogar tiefgreifende Reformen zu erlassen, die für die magyarische Nobilität so Undenkbares wie das Ende der Leibeigenschaft, religiöse Toleranz und die Besteuerung des Adels umfassten. Nachdem das Werk zum "Bestseller" des Jahres wurde (Csizmadia, 6) und, kaum erschienen, Maria Theresia auf dem Landtag von 1764 in Verlegenheit brachte, wurde zur Beruhigung der Gemüter ein landesfürstliches Verbot für das Königreich Ungarn ausgesprochen (immerhin wurde das Buch schon 1769 unter "erga schedam" wieder freigegeben); der Vatikan setzte die schmale Abhandlung von 174 Seiten, die den Stein des Anstoßes gebildet hatte, auf den Index Librorum Prohibitorum (vgl. Reusch II, 945f.), wo sie bis zu dessen Abschaffung 1966 verblieb.

Elles étaient tirées à très petit nombre. La soutenance n'étaient alors pas cet événement mondain qui au XIX° siècle, dans la bourgeoisie vient sacraliser le début de la "carrière" ou de l'ascension sociale, poussant sur le devant de la scène, des Charcot, des Alfred Vulpian, Adrien Proust, ou des Potain, Laennec, les grands mandarins de la médecine. Aucune bibliothèque publique au Monde ne possède un tel ensemble et l'une des thèses restait inconnue. On trouve à la suite : 1- Quaestio medica . An pro varia aetate variet temperamentum ?

Some foxing. Until William Blackstone (1723-70) published these Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine from which nothing but trouble could be expected. Blackstone's achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which influenced its formation. While he has been accused of increasing English complacency in its existing institutions, he at least made the English more familiar with their own legal system. Suddenly the law gained popular respect, due at least in part to the enormous success of Blackstone's work. Blackstone divides the law into four divisions: the rights of persons; the rights of things; public wrongs; private wrongs. Hence, a book for each division. Published over a period of five years in four volumes, these books were reprinted again a dozen times in almost as many years. They were translated into French, German, Italian, and Russian, and remained the textbook for legal students for some time. They were indispensible to the Justice of the Peace as well as to his clerk. O … [Click Below for Full Description]

HARRISON, John and James SHORT].
Printed for the Author, and Sold by Mr. Sandby, London, 1765. First edition, extremely rare, published by Harrison (1693-1776) himself with the technical assistance of the optical instrument maker James Short (1710-68), in which Harrison defended the success of his chronometer H4, and staked his claim to be awarded the full "Longitude Prize" of £20,000. Harrison had been working on the problem of longitude for over three decades by the time he published this work, one of the most important of the pamphlets produced in the course of the longitude affair. H4 had first been properly tested in 1761, when Harrison’s son William (1728-1815) took it with him on a voyage to Jamaica in the ship Deptford for a sea-trial. Although the trial was a triumph that exceeded the demands of the Longitude Act, Harrison’s claim to the Prize was not accepted, and he was forced to undertake another trial of H4 in 1764. Again accompanied by William, on this occasion H4 computed the longitude of Barbados within 9.8 geographical miles, exhibiting accuracy three times greater than that required by the Act. Despite this success, the board still refused to issue the award, in some part due to resistance from the Astronomer Royal Nevil Maskelyne (1732-1811), an advocate of the cheaper lunar distance method. Faced with another refusal, Harrison had the present appeal to the Board of Longitude printed. It includes his relevant correspondence with the Admiralty, concluding that ‘whereas a method (invented by your Memorialist) for the Discovery of the Longitude hath been tried by Experiments made according … [Click Below for Full Description]
