D'Ancona 672) First edition as a reissue of the edition "printed for S. Hooper; H. Webley; W. Nicol; and S. Bladon", 1766, with a cancel title page and an additional dedication to David Garrick.John Northall (1723?-1759), army officer and travel writer, "entered the service as a gentleman cadet in the Royal Regiment of Artillery on 1 July 1741 and was promoted to lieutenant fireworker on 1 April 1742. He served under Thomas Pattison with the Royal Artillery in Flanders in 1742, and was promoted second lieutenant on 1 April 1744. He was at the battle of Fontenoy on 11 May 1745, and became first lieutenant on 3 October 1745, captain-lieutenant on 24 March 1752, and captain on 1 October 1755. In February 1752 he went to Minorca, and thence to Livorno. He was recorded in Capua on 1 April 1752. Instead of making the usual tour of Italy, he visited the principal cities of Tuscany and, after a cursory visit to Rome, went to Naples. Then, after a more lengthened stay in Rome, he went to Loreto, Bologna, Venice, Mantua, Parma, Modena, and returned to Livorno, whence he sailed for Genoa. From Genoa he went by sea to Villafranca, and on by land to Marseilles. He died in 1759. An account of his Italian tour was published posthumously in July 1766, Travels through Italy; Containing New and Curious Observations on that Country, but the work has been criticized as following closely J.

      [London, 1766. Folio. Printed self-wrappers, stitched. Three horizontal folds. Near fine, untrimmed. This case arose out of a dispute concerning land in the township of Lampeter in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Christian Stover obtained a verdict against an order of ejectment in the Court of Pennsylvania on April 15th, 1763. Here he prays for an affirmation of the judgment for a list of "Reasons," which are printed on page 5 and signed in print by Stover's counsels, William De Grey and Fletcher Norton.

        Fragmentos de la vida, y virtudes del V. Illmo. y Rmo. Sr. Dr. D. Vasco de Quiroga Primer Obispo de la Santa Iglesia Cathedral de Michoacan, Y Fundador del Real y Primitivo Colegio de S. Nicolas ... [with] Reglas y Ordenanzas para el gobierno de los Hospitales de Santa Fe de Mexico, y Michoacan ...

      Mexico City: Imprenta del Real y mas Antiguo Colegio de S. Ildefonso, 1766. First edition. Quarto, ff 13, portrait of Quiroga, 202 pp; 1 f, 29 pp, with errata on verso. [Medina 2781; Beristain II:303] In the prologue Moreno relates the many sources he was able to consult, and his book is the basic source for Quiroga's biography. In fact Medina (Imprenta de Mexico) says of it:"Uno de los libros mas notables de su epoca en el pais en que fue escrito, por su estilo, por el criterio que revela en su autor y por la investigacion historica y critica que encierra." Bishop Quiroga [1470? - 1565] was one of the earliest of Mexico's proselytizers. A lawyer by profession, though known for his saintly character, he was consecrated as first bishop of Michoacan by Zumarraga himself. He attempted to create a kind of utopia on the lines of Sir Thomas More among the Indians of his diocese. He established hospitals and colleges as well. The second part of the book consists of the regulations for the hospitals he had founded for the care of the native population. Bound in contemporary vellum, with ties, only one of which is still present. Edges are stained red, with evidence of ownership ecclesiastical library -- a "marco de fuego" -- on upper edge. Smudge on first page of text of the biographichal part, but otherwise the paper is fresh. Very good copy.

        The History of The Late War in Germany Between The King of Prussia and The Empress of Germany

      R. Horsfield et al 1766 - Volume one was published in 1766 pseudo-anonymously by Henry Lloyd, the author describing himself as ¿a general officer¿in the Austrian army¿. However, volume two was not published until 1790 along with a re-issuing of volume one. This happened posthumously as Lloyd died in 1785. As with his other works, this is not a generalised account of the wars at this time. The book also deals with the topography of the different regions with specific reference to roads and military manoeuvres, as to be expected from an officer who took part in the actions. Lloyd¿s works came to be highly respected for their almost scientific approach to warfare. This volume is enhanced by a fine fold-out map of the region, as well as seven fold-out plans of battle accompanied by their order of battle. Condition: Binding: contemporary calf rebacked with banded spine and label. Boards generally scuffed and worn. Hinges repaired. Binding tight. A little dampstaining affecting the upper margins of the last three plans and a little of the plans themselves. Small damp stain to lower margins near spine, not affecting text. Periodic light damp stain to upper margin, again not affecting text. Slight loss to the outer margin of p19 of the chapter on the campaign of 1756. Pages generally bright, maps and plans correctly folded and in good order. 27cm by 22cm approx. Map facing title. Title page with section details. Dedication page. Preface 36pp. Four sections including one plan of battle. The remaining plans to the rear along with errata page. Printed for the author and sold through various outlets, 1766. Due to the size and weight, extra postage may be required to post outside the UK please email for details [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Nicolàs obispo de Valladolid ... Con notas criticas, en que se aclaran muchos puntos historicos, y antiguedades americanas especialmente michoacanenses.

      Mexico: en la imprenta del Real, y mas antiguo Colegio de S. Ildefonso Small 4to (20.5 cm; 8"). [13] ff., 202 pp., [2] ff., 29, [1 (errata)] pp., port.. 1766 In the 18th century Mexico saw a birth of great biographical writing focusing on important figures in its history, especially its ecclesiastical history. Vasco de Quiroga (1470?-1565) was an imposing and perhaps quixotic figure during the early post-Conquest decades. A learned man, he arrived in Mexico in 1531 as one of the first four judges of the high court (i.e., oidores) and became the first bishop of the far western province of Michoacan. In that "out of the way" region of Mexico he devoted himself to establishing European culture, ensuring fair treatment of the indigenous population, creating towns and cities, and building the first utopian community in the New World. => Not the least of his accomplishments was the creation of two pueblo-hospitals for native Americans, and appended and integral to this biography are his "Reglas, y ordenanzas para el gobierno de los Hospitales de Santa Fé de México, y Michoacàn," which occupy the final 29 pages. Historians still consider this to be the definitive biography of Quiroga. The => engraved portrait of him, handsome and from the burin of José Morales, adds a face to the words of the biographer and to the account of the deeds of the biographee. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of ties. Marca de fuego, unidentified, in upper edges of closed volume; very faint waterstaining visible here and there, most visible on five leaves at rear; generally a very good copy, clean and even crisp.

        Essai pour servir à l'histoire de la putréfaction

      1766 - (6), XLVIII, 578, (6)pp., 10 Paris, chez P. Fr. Didot le Jeune, 1766, in-8, (6), XLVIII, 578, (6)pp, 10 tableaux, veau havane de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, tranches rouges, Première édition de cet ouvrage rare. Bien complet des 10 tableaux dépliants; 6 pour les substances qui conservent la viande saine, 3 tables des expériences sur les différentes substances "employées dans le cours de cet ouvrage, placées chacune dans le saisons où elles on été faites", et un tableau des substances "qui ont rendu les œufs, le poisson et la viande inaltérables". Touchant à la fois la chimie et la gastronomie, cet Essai n'a pourtant été que très rarement mentionné par les principales bibliographies de ces sujets. Liée aux grands hommes et aux intellectuels de son temps, madame Thiroux d'Arconville (1720-1805) s'intéressa à différentes parties des sciences : la chimie (elle traduisit les Leçons de chimie de Shaw), la médecine, l'histoire naturelle, etc. Dans l'ouvrage présenté ici, elle décrit un grand nombre d'expériences menées avec rigueur dans son laboratoire de Meudon entre 1755 et 1763. Pour chacune d'elles, elle consignait avec précision la température de l'air, la force des vents, la couleur des liquides de conservation, leur odeur au fil des jours. Ses expériences portaient sur la conservation des denrées alimentaires et tout particulièrement sur les viandes conservées dans les vins, le vinaigre, les liqueurs, etc. Il faut lire avec intérêt les observations tirées de toutes ses expériences (p. 442 et suiv.).

        Carte Réduite de L'Ocean Septentrional compris entre l'Asie et l'Amerique suivant les Decouvertes qui ont été faites par les Russes..

      Paris: J. N. Bellin, 1766. Copper-engraved map, in very good condition apart from expert repairs to center fold. A fascinating map of the North Pacific shown just before the voyages of Cook, by Bellin, the esteemed French Royal hydrographer, present here in the first state This extremely interesting and finely engraved large map depicts the northern Pacific Ocean, and adjacent coasts during an early stage in its exploration, after the first wave of great Russian explorers but just before the momentous voyages of Captain James Cook. The map embraces a vast expanse from north of the 35th parallel, from Japan to California. The map shows the tracks of the Russian voyages of Bering and his deputy Aleksei Chirikov conducted from 1728-43 that first defined eastern Siberia and touched upon the American northwest. Save the imaginary bulge on the north coast of the Chuckchi Peninsula, the coasts of Siberia are extremely well-defined, attesting to Bering's enormous talent as a cartographer. Japan, whose rulers were known to be especially unwelcoming to foreign explorers, is not well understood, such that its large northernmost island, Hokkaido, does not appear at all on the map. It is perhaps Bellin's depiction of North America that is most intriguing. It shows how Bering and Chirikov touched on various points of the Aleutians and sighted Mount St. Elias, the 18,000 ft. peak located near the top of the Alaska panhandle. The Pacific northwest immediately south of that point is entirely conjectural noting apocryphal discoveries such as the 'River of the King's' encountered by the Spanish Admiral de Fuente in 1640, and the Strait of Juan De Fuca, discovered in 1592. Although the latter body of water does exist, it was probably first encountered by Europeans in the 1770s. Bellin does, however, note Sir Francis Drake's actual discovery of 'Nouvelle Albion' (northern California) in 1578. The map optimistically shows a land route across the continent to the Pacific, decades before any such endeavor was embarked upon. The mapping of the heart of North America is also most curious, as it shows the Red River system, which in reality flows towards Hudson's Bay, as being connected to the Mississippi Basin. The map is elegantly traversed by rhumb lines and the composition is completed by an exquisite rococo title cartouche. This map was part of the l'Hydrographie Française, a great sea atlas, published by Bellin in two volumes from 1755 to 1766. This was one of the finest works of the prolific Bellin, the "Hydrographer to the King", who was so highly regarded that the British (who were almost always at war with France) made him a member of their Royal Society.

Rothschild 407 Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history. Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful. ? Printing In the Mind of Man). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Astronomical manuscript on the 1766 comet in Portuguese entitled: Dialogo epistolar astronomico sobre o cometa apparecido em Lamego as da Abril e observado aze o dia 9. dao anno de 1766

      1766 - Folio (345 x 228 mm), ff [10] paginated [2] 15 [3, blank], ink on paper in a fine cursive script, drawing in ink pen and wash of the comet on the title; title a bit dust-soiled, otherwise fine, on uncut sheets in contemporary marbled boards. £5500A very learned unpublished Portuguese manuscript treatise on the 1766 comet (D/1766 G1 Helfenzrieder), which appeared in April of that year and was discovered on April 1 by Helfenzrieder, and independently by Messier, Cassini de Thury, and others. This treatise gives a detailed account of the observations made by the authors from their observatory set up on the mountain of Queimada near Lamego in Portugal. The authors also present a chronological catalogue of previous observations of comets from 1500 on, and cite numerous authors, including Apianus, Kepler, Gassendi, Cassini, Hevelius, Halley, Newton, Clairaut, and members of the Académie Royal des Sciences.The authors were pioneer climatologists as well as being accomplished astronomers. 'To the best of our knowledge, the earliest [meteorological] records undertaken in continental Portugal were carried out by Joao de Sousa Freire de Araujo Borges da Veiga (Veiga, hereafter) in Lamego, from 1770 until 1784. Lamego was an important and prosperous Episcopal city of the Douro valley, and was marked by economic productions: silk (the 16th-17th centuries) and Port wine (since the 18th century). There is scarce information concerning Veiga's life, although there are some facts worthy to be highlighted (Taborda et al, 2004). Although he was a correspondent member of the Lisboa Royal Academy of Science (elected in 1785), he began his meteorological observations in 1770, well before the LRAS foundation. His knowledge and interest in meteorological observations came most probably from his contacts with foreign colleagues. Furthermore, astronomy was also within Veiga's interests: he published a small booklet on astronomical observations in Salamanca (Nunes, 1997). The Lamego series consists of tables of annual values (extreme, average, totals) of temperature, precipitation and wind direction . Quantitative and qualitative information is included in the manuscript "Meteorological observations made in Lamego", that he offered to the LRAS (Veiga, 1784). Veiga's observations site and measurement methods are unknown' (M.J. Alcoforado et al, 'Early Portuguese meteorological measurements (18th century)', Climate of the Past, 8, pp 358-9 (2012)). The authors were also contributors to the Portuguese nautical ephemerides.The title bears the initials of the authors, who have signed and dated the manuscript in full at the end, and dedicated it to an unidentified noble recipient.

      Frederick County, Va, 1766. Vellum, 8 x 14 1/4 inches, official seal present. Some soiling. Wear along folds, with minor loss of a few letters. Docketed on verso. About very good. An official document recording a contract to rent land to one Isaac Foster by Thomas Fairfax, the Sixth Lord Fairfax and proprietor of the Northern Neck of Virginia. In the document, Fairfax agrees to rent 326 acres of land in Frederick County to Isaac Foster, the boundaries of which are described therein. Fairfax retains rights to part of the natural resources of the land, including "a full third of all lead, copper, tin, coals, iron mine and iron ore that shall be found thereon." Thomas Lord Fairfax (1693-1781), a baron in the Scottish peerage, inherited a domain of over 5,000,000 acres through his Culpepper ancestors. His vast proprietorship in the Northern Neck of Virginia, which encompassed the areas between the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers and westward, had been managed by Robert "King" Carter, but when Fairfax learned how rich Carter had become on his death in 1732, he decided to move to Virginia and manage his estates himself. He soon became the richest man in Virginia. The ANB notes that " Frederick County Lord Fairfax worked at managing his farms, granting vacant land, and collecting quitrents from Chesapeake Bay to the Appalachian Mountains. As lord of the manor he was magistrate in every county within the proprietorship and occasionally sat with their courts. He helped found the towns of Winchester and Alexandria and backed a Potomac River canal. During the Seven Years' War, he commanded Virginia's militia on the northern frontier. Since the Northern Neck encompassed only part of the Old Dominion's territory, his role in the colony's government was unofficial, but he exerted influence through discreet patronage of Northern Neck gentry." A very old man when the Revolution broke out, he was unmolested personally despite being a devout Loyalist. He died in 1781 at the age of 88. His estates, however, had been confiscated in 1779. His heirs received only a comparatively minor settlement from the British government. An interesting colonial document relating to lands in northern Virginia, typical of Fairfax's transactions as a proprietor.

        Tentativa theologica, em que se pretende mostrar, que impedido o recurso SÈ Apostolica se devolve aos senhores bispos a faculdade de dispensar nos impedimentos publicos do matrimonio, e de prover espiritualmente em todos os mais cazos reservados ao papa, todas as vezes que assim o pedir a publica e urgente necessidade dos subditos.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Miguel Rodrigues, 1766. - (24 ll.), xi, 286 pp., (22 ll.). Lacking a final blank leaf present in some copies. 4?, contemporary mottled sheep (some wear; small repair to rear cover), spine richly gilt with raised bands in six compartments, citron morocco lettering piece with short author and title gilt-lettered, text block edges speckled red. Internally clean and crisp, printed on high quality, thick paper. Overall in very good condition. ---- Second edition of what was written as a detailed discussion of dispensations regarding marriage issued by the pope and by bishops, but in fact served as the death-blow to Ultramontanism in Spain and Portugal. The first edition appeared in Lisbon, 1764; the third ("revista e emendada") at Lisbon, 1769. It was translated to Latin, Italian, French, German, and Spanish. An English translation was published in London, 1847, under the title @Tentativa theologica: episcopal rights and ultra-montane usurpations. Ultramontanism emphasizes the powers and prerogatives of the pope, even in secular matters. As such, it was an aspect of the struggle for power between the Church and increasingly powerful secular rulers. From the seventeenth century on, Ultramontanism was closely associated with the Jesuits, who (not coincidentally) were expelled from Portugal in 1759, five years before the first edition of this work appeared. After the expulsion, D. JosÈ I recalled his ambassador to Rome and expelled the papal nuncio: diplomatic relations between Portugal and Rome were not resumed until 1770. Also not coincidentally, the third and final Portuguese edition of the @Tentativa theologica appeared in 1769. The Proemio (pp. i-xi) reviews the reasons for Portugal's break with Rome, cites numerous historical justifications, and lists the immediate consequences, in terms of ecclesiastical matters that had to be taken over by Portuguese bishops when the Holy See could not be consulted. Leading among them were dispensations allowing nobles to marry despite a prohibited degree of consanguinity.The first license (final page) states rather ambiguously that the work can be printed, "vistas as licenÁas do Santo Officio, e Ordinario." Rather than the usual statements that there is nothing herein against the Church, the three other licenses simply say, "PÛde correr." The name "Carvalho" (i.e., Sebasti?o JosÈ de Carvalho e Melo, Conde de Oeiras, later MarquÍs de Pombal) appears after three of the four licenses.AntÛnio Pereira de Figueiredo (1725-1797) was an Oratorian priest interested in philological studies who also wrote a considerable number of didactic works on Latin and history. He moved between Enlightenment and theological thought as the political winds blew. After Portugal cut off relations with the Holy See, Figueiredo put himself at the service of the political-religious policy of the MarquÍs de Pombal. In 1768 he abandoned his order, which had fallen out of favor with Pombal, to take up a post as a deputy of the Real Mesa CensÛria. His translation of the Bible into Portuguese has been reprinted a number of times.---- InnocÍncio I, 228. NUC: DLC, MH.

"Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history. Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful.". MIXED FIRST AND SECOND EDITIONS IN MATCHING BINDINGS. Volumes One and Two are Second Editions, Volumes Three and Four are First Editions. All volumes are in excellent condition. The front hinges are starting in volumes one and two.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press,, 1766-69 & 1771. [Together with:] Tracts chiefly relating to the Antiquities and Laws of England. The Third Edition. 2 works bound as 5 volumes, quarto (273 × 203 mm). Contemporary mottled calf recently rebacked in brown morocco, decorative gilt spines, red and dark green morocco twin labels. 2 engraved tables (1 folding) in volume II. A little wear to corners of bindings, some paper toning and scattered foxing. An attractive set of mixed editions of the Commentaries: first edition of volumes III and IV, second edition of volume I, third edition of volume II; with the third edition of the Tracts. "Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history … Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine... Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation... He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful" (PMM). Armorial bookplate in each volume of George Manners: possibly the diplomatist (1778-1853) and editor of the Tory journal The Satirist who practised law in London between 1815 and 1819.

      London, 1766. Modern marbled paper wrappers, laid in. Very good. An important political pamphlet in which the author urges the overturning of the Stamp Act due to the increasingly bitter colonial response. Assuring his readers that the colonists bring no immediate threat of military force, "they are neither able nor desirous to contend with their mother country," he instead warns of the effects on British trade with the colonies. Because of the great expense, he argues, the colonists might either refuse or be unable to continue to support the trade and thusly bring about economic ruin. A British citizen who resided in the colonies for several years, the author cautions, on behalf of the Americans, "they will never consent to enrich us, while they think we oppress them; they will never treat us with the respect due to parent, while they think we treat them as slaves; nor will they carry on a friendly and profitable trade with us, while they think we treat them as aliens, and load them with chains." Adams notes the date of publication as 1765, though the titlepage reads 1766. The pamphlet was reprinted in Boston the next year.

        Artikel von der Zauberey, Hexerey, Wahrsagerey und dergleichen.

      Österreich, 1766. - 9 Blatt, Rückenfalz, 30 x 20 cm, Gut erhalten. Eine von mindestens 2 Druckvarianten. Der am 5. November 1766 publizierte Erlass stellte die Gesetzgebung in Bezug auf Hexerei und Zauberei auf neue Grundlagen, die die bisher gängige Praxis außer Kraft setzten und Hexenprozesse nahezu unmöglich machte. Hexerei wurde zwar nicht vollends angezweifelt jedoch sehr in Zweifel gezogen und nur angenommen werden dürfe „wo die Vermuthung Statt hat, daß eine erwiesene Unthat, welche nach dem Laufe der Natur von einem Menschen für sich selbst nicht hat bewerkstelligt werden können, mit bedungener Zuthuung und Beistand des Satans aus Verhängniß Gottes geschehen sei."
