LAFARGUE de
LAFARGUE DE œuvres mêlées [Histoire géographique de la Nouvelle-Ecosse] Chez Duchesne, Paris 1765, 9 x 16,5 cm, xix (1) 324ppet (2) viij, 359pp., 2 volumes, calf bindingFirst edition, with three fine engravings by Le Mire after Gravelot, a title vignette (repeated) and two headpieces.Polished marbled calf. Spine in compartments. Light brown morocco title and volume labels. Tear with lack to lower joint of foot of spine of volume I. Small lack to upper joint at foot of spine to volume II. Two corners slightly bumped. A little rubbing. A very good copy. The first volume is made up of various bits of occasional verse and other academic poems by Lafargue, as well as a treatise on oratorical pronunciation. Of greater interest is the second volume, which begins with a treatise on the reading and above all translation of the Histoire géographique de la Nouvelle-Ecosse [General History of New Caledonia or Acadia], an anonymous work based in part on Charlevoix's Histoire de la Nouvelle-France [History of New France]. The author gives a precise list of bays, ports, goods and production, a history of the trade there and the importance of its geographical location for the security of New France, since New Caledonia formed a peninsula in front of Quebec. The author also gives an overview of the relations and conflicts between France and Britain over this territory. An important account and without doubt the first on this region of the North-East of Canada, which became home to a number of people from Poitiers, who shaped the language of Acadia, and 12,000 of whom were deported in 1755 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wallis (John)
Printed by William Bowyer for A. Millar, 1765. title printed in capitals, sectional title to letter to Beverley also set in capitals, with a fine engraved portrait frontispiece, pp. xxxv, [1], 281, [2, ads], 8vo, contemporary tree calf of a reddish hue by Kalthoeber with his ticket, evenly spaced triple gilt fillets on sides with a fleur-de-lys in the corners, rounded spine gilt and lettered direct, inner dentelles with a Greek key patter, yellow edges, minor wear, good. 'In 1653 Wallis published Grammatica linguae Anglicanae, with a treatise De loquela and a Praxis grammatica. This work was often reprinted and has been praised by linguists for its deep insights and careful attention to sounds. De loquela served as a theoretical basis for Wallis's attempts to teach the profoundly deaf how to speak' (ODNB). This is the sixth edition, if we don't count 2 German editions before it. The fine portrait frontispiece of Wallis was drawn especially for the book by Giovanni Battista Cipriani (1727-1785). The presence of a Liberty Cap between the image and the legend betokens the involvement of Thomas Hollis in this edition: he paid for it. Copies are known in proper Hollis bindings, and perhaps the red hue of this binding is a nod to him. This new edition was intended for Continental readers, to enable them to read, in English, the works of English liberty which Hollis was disseminating.

NAIP w007025. The first edition of this monumental production of the colonial press. Bacon, the compiler of this massive volume, was rector of All-Saints Parish in Frederick County, and domestic chaplain in Maryland to the Right Honorable Frederick Lord Baltimore. Bacon worked on the LAWS for thirteen years and publication took an additional four years to complete. It is considered to be the most important legal work published in the colony, covering the years 1637 through 1763 and supplemented by extensive indices. The work is also noted for its typography, the quality of the printing, and the first appearance of the seal of Maryland on the titlepage. In A HISTORY OF PRINTING IN COLONIAL MARYLAND, 1686-1776, Lawrence C. Wroth describes the work as "not only the most important of the legal publications of the Province of Maryland, but it happens also to have been a specimen of typography which was not exceeded in dignity and beauty by any production of an American colonial press....In sch … [Click Below for Full Description]

Patrick Henry
A rare document, the only one we could find having reached the market, connecting slavery with the man who famously said, “Give me liberty or give me death.” Patrick Henry was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1765 and soon became its leading radical member. He was one of that colony's opponents of the Stamp Act, and proposed the Virginia Stamp Act Resolutions that challenged the authority of Parliament. One of them, considered treasonous by many, held "that the General Assembly of this Colony have the only and exclusive Right and Power to lay Taxes and Impositions upon the inhabitants of this Colony…" In 1774 Henry represented Virginia at the First Continental Congress in Philadelphia where he continued in the role of firebrand. In early 1775, he took an active leadership role in the Revolution, particularly at the second Virginia Convention at Richmond in March 1775. The Virginia delegates were divided between those who wanted only a peaceful solution to the imperial dispute and those who also were ready to prepare for military resistance. Henry led the call for resistance and introduced a resolution to that effect. He supported its passage with the legendary speech that closed with “Give me liberty or give me death!” Henry carried the day, but by no more than a half dozen votes. Henry was elected to the last of Virginia ’s revolutionary conventions, which met in Williamsburg on May 6, 1776. There he participated in drafting Virginia ’s resolution calling upon Congress to declare the colonies “free and independent states.” After independence … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARGENSON, (R.L. DE VOYER D'.)
A Amsterdam, Chez Marc Michel Rey, 1765. Title-page printed in red and black and with title vignette. xvi, 328 pp. 8vo. Contemporary half calf, spine gilt, marbled boards, vellum corners. Menger 544; Stourm, p. 107; Higgs 3368; not in Kress, not in Goldsmiths; not in Einaudi; Renouvin, Assemblées provinciales, pp. 31-36; Lichtenberger, Le Socialisme au XVIIIe siècle, pp. 93-103. Second edition, first issue. This second edition has two issues: one with an errata-leaf (pp. xv-xvi) and numbered preliminaries, the second issue has no errata-leaf while the errata are corrected and the preliminaries are unnumbered. The original title was to be: "Jusqu'ou la démocratie peut s'étendre dans un Etat monarchique", but this was changed into the title under which the book is now known. The text was substantially modified for the French market and the text also made more moderate, but even after these alterations the book was and remained forbidden and prosecuted. In this book, D'Argenson tries to establish the principles of democratic and municipal government and he is considered by Lichtenberger as one of the forerunners of the great social and economic reforms of later ages.The work was severely prosecuted in France, but M.M. Rey printed at least three different editions during the years 1764-1765. René-Louis de Voyer de Paulmy, Marquis d'Argenson (1694-1757), French writer on economic and political subjects. The main principle in d'Argenson's philosophy was universal liberalism- 'not too much government' (pas trop gouverner). In politics the 'democracy' which he wished to 'admit into … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rousseau, Jean-Jacques, Jacob Vernes, et al.
La Haye (The Hague): Frederic Staatman, 1765. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this very rare collection of letters to and from Rousseau, and of works by and about Rousseau, many of which were considered scandalous (which explains why this collection was published in the Hague). 8, 200, 12, 24, 48, 11 pp. Staatman, the publisher, thought up the idea of selling this book under two different titles. He printed two title-pages and two prefaces. One title-page reads: "Recueil d'opuscules concernant les ouvrages et les sentiments de nos philosophes modernes sur la religion, l'education et les moeurs." The preface that follows that title-page begins: "Les Ouvrages & les Sentimens de nos Philosophes modernes, sur la Religion, l'Education & les Moeurs, ont fait tant de bruit, qu'il seroit superflu de vouloir y attirer l'attention du Public. D'habiles gens, en divers pais, ont pris la plume pour les refuter, & leurs Livres, plus ou moins repandus, se trouvent par-tout." The other title-page reads: "Recueil d'opuscules concernant les ouvrages et les sentiments de monsieur J.-J. Rousseau sur la religion et l'education." And the preface that follows that title-page begins: "Les Ouvrages & les Sentimens de Mr. Rousseau, sur la Religion & sur l'Education ont fait tant de bruit, qu'il seroit superflu de vouloir y attirer l'attention du Public. D'habiles gens, en divers pais, ont pris la plume pour les refuter, & leurs Livres, plus ou moins repandus, se trouvent par-tout."

Amsterdam. Marc Michel Rey. 1765. 1 volume in-8, plein veau tacheté, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre beige. VII pp. ; [1] p. ; 312 pp. Contrefaçon parisienne de cet ouvrage paru en 1764. L’ouvrage a été publié à titre posthume par le fils du marquis, après qu'un certain nombre de versions manuscrites aient circulé dans le public éclairé dès 1739.Cette publication marque une étape importante dans le processus de critique des institutions existantes, de surcroît venant d’un ancien ministre. "En matière sociale et politique les idées de d'Argenson sont à la fois hardies, brutales et timorées. D'Argenson tend vers une sorte de socialisme imposé et surveillé par une aristocratie qui n'en prendrait que ce qu'elle voudrait" (Mornet, Les Origines Intellectuelles de la Révolution Française).

'Poetry has been absolutely redeemed by it', wrote Wordsworth ('Essay supplementary to the preface', Lyrical Ballads, 1815, 3, 75). Several generations of poets felt its influence: Blake, Coleridge, Keats, Rossetti, Morris, Swinburne, and many lesser lights.
