        La pharsale

      Paris: Chez Merlin 2 vols. I: 8vo (19.5 cm, 7.75"). Frontis., [1] f., lxxix, [1 (blank)] 304 pp., [1 (errata)] f.; 5 plates. II: 8vo (19.5 cm, 7.75"). [1] f., 315, [1] pp., [2] ff.; 5 plts.. 1766 Lucan's Pharsalia is an epic poem, the greatest in Latin after the Aeneid, on the subject of the civil war between Pompey and Caesar. Born in Córdoba, Spain, Lucan (A.D. 39?-65) was the grandson of the elder Seneca, nephew of the younger Seneca, and the brother of the Gallio mentioned in Acts 18. He published the Pharsalia in A.D.. 62 or 63, but it seems likely that his poetic talent aroused the jealously of the vain Nero, as after its publication the emperor forbade him to write or even plead in the courts, and then later compelled him to commit suicide for alleged treason. The editio princeps of Lucan was printed in Rome by Sweynheym and Pannartz in 1469. The illustrated plates in this edition are after Gravelot, and the French translation is by M. Marmontel. Binding: Contemporary treed calf, spine gilt extra with badge of a thistle in compartments; red leather labels. Marbled endpapers. All edges red. Provenance: Small booklabel of William Salloch on rear pastedown. Binding as above, gilt somewhat dimmed; some chipping of leather to corners and spine tips, and endpapers rubbed. Internally generally clean, with some browning from turn-ins and a few spots of soiling. Bookplate on front pastedowns.

        A Succinct View of the Origin of Our Colonies, With Their Civil State

      1766. 1766 Pamphlet Questioning the Extent of Parliamentary Supremacy [Bollan, William (c.1710-1776)]. A Succinct View of the Origin of our Colonies, With Their Civil State, Founded by Queen Elizabeth, Corroborated by Succeeding Princes, And Confirmed by Acts of Parliament; Whereby the Nature of the Empire Established in America, And the Errors of Various Hypotheses Formed Thereupon, May be Clearly Understood. With Observations on the Commercial, Beneficial and Perpetual Union of the Colonies with This Kingdom. Being an Extract from an Essay Lately Published, Entitled The Freedom of Speech and Writing, &c. London: S.n., 1766. [ii], 46 pp. Octavo (7" x 4-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent stiff marbled wrappers, printed title panel to front cover. Moderate toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, small chip to fore-edge of title page, internally clean. * Only edition (in this form). Bollan was a lawyer and agent for Colony of Massachusetts. A Succinct View is an extract from Bollan's The Freedom of Speech and Writing upon Public Affairs Considered, a longer work first published in 1766, that discusses the role of parliamentary supremacy. It is a subtle and somewhat subversive work. Bollan begins by asserting "that the 'care of common rights' should be left to Parliament. In the midst of what was essentially an apologia for parliamentary supremacy, Bollan thuis implied, first, that some noncommon rights existed, and second, that protecting such rights might be within the purview of an authority other than Parliament" (LaCroix). OCLC locates several copies, but none in law libraries. LaCroix, The Ideological Origins of American Federalism 242 (n94). Sabin, A Dictionary of Books Relating to America 93387.

      Leipzig, sumtibus Haered. M. G. Weidmanni et Reichii, 1766.. Editio Quarta multis quaestionibus aucta. 2 Bde. Gr.-8vo. 2 Bll., 968; 2 Bll., 764 S., 51 Bll. (Index). Schöne, zeitgenössische Ganzlederbände auf 5 Bünden geheftet, mit geprägten Rückenschildchen.. Cocceji (1679-1755) hat entscheidend den Beginn der Justizreform des Aufklärungszeitalters in Preußen mitgeprägt. Nach dem Studium der Rechtswissenschaft an der Universität Frankfurt an der Oder trat er im Jahre 1704 in den preußischen Justizdienst ein. In den Jahren 1711 bis 1713 war er der Vertreter Preußens an der Visitation des Reichskammergerichts. In dieser Zeit entstand sein vorliegendes berühmtestes Werk: das "jus civile controversum". Das Werk ist in der Legalordnung der Digesten gegliedert. Innerhalb dieser Legalordnung werden Quaestionen an den Beginn gestellt, die in kontroverser Manier beantwortet werden: Affirm(andum) - Obj(ectum) - Resp(ondum). In der Regel werden an das Respondum noch weitere Gegenargumente aufgereiht, denen wiederum eine Antwort folgt. - Samuel de Cocceji war Sohn von Henricus Coccejus, des Ministers, Chefs de Justice und Großkanzlers Friedrichs des Großen.

        Memoirs of Count Lally,

      London: Printed by Charles Kiernan, for F. Newbery,, 1766. from His embarking for the East Indies, as Commander in Chief of the French Forces in that Country, to his being sent Prisoner of War to England, after the Surrender of Pondicherry. Octavo (205 x 124 mm). Modern half sheep, old marbled boards, raised bands to spine, titles to spine gilt, all edges sprinkled red. Bound with the half-title. One engraved folding map of Lally's military operations. Contemporary ownership inscription to title page. Extremities lightly rubbed, a few minor scuff marks to boards, endpapers a little browned, mild offsetting from map, text block slightly foxed throughout. A very good copy. First edition. A contemporary account of the French campaigns in India during the Seven Years' War in which, Lally (1702-66), a French general of Irish descent, commanded the French forces. Initially successful in pushing the British forces back from Pondicherry to Madras, Lally later found himself defeated by Eyre Coote (1726-83) at the Battle of Wandiwash in 1760. By 1761, Lally was forced to surrender to Coote after the latter's siege of Pondicherry. This defeat effectively obliterated French control over Indian territories and led to Lally being accused of treason by the French court. Taken as a prisoner of war to London, Lally ill-advisedly requested he be allowed to return to France to face the charges in person; he was subsequently judged, sentenced, and executed in May 1766. This copy comes from the library of Harriot Beauclerk (1777-1837), the British actress, banker, and later duchess of St Albans, with her bookplate to front pastedown.

Manque aux mors supérieurs en tête des tomes I et IV. Manque en coiffe du tome III. Coiffe de queue du tome IV arrachée. Quelques coins émoussés.

Auteur prolifique, Madame de Gomez obtint une grande faveur en Europe avec Les journées amusantes, qui furent sans conteste un des bestseller de l'époque. Ces journées s'apparentent à la structure du Décaméron de Bocace et à celle de l'Heptaméron de Marguerite de Navarre. Composée de 18 journées au sein desquelles six narrateurs content des histoires. Ce qui caractérise l'écriture des Journées amusantes, c'est la richesse encyclopédique et érudite, caractéristique, et qui a finalement desservit l'oeuvre dans le temps l'oeuvre se voulant, avec un certain archaïsme voulu, un hommage à la littérature galante française du XVIIe siècle.

The first printing was issued in Horeki 6 [1757], but this issue is also every well printed. Very scarce work - few copies are located in KSSM.

        Die electrische Medicin oder die Kraft und Wirkung der Elektricität in dem menschlichen Körper und dessen Krankheiten besonders bey dgelähmten Gliedern aus Vernunftsgründern erläutert und durch Erfahrung.

      - Regensburg, verlegts Johann Leopold Montag, 1766, 4°, 4 Bl., 84 pp., 1 Frontispice, Pappband; die Tafel leider etwas weniger leicht angeschnitten wie im Nachdruck, frisches und feines Exemplar! Zweite Ausgabe der "Kraft und Wirkung der Elektricität in dem menschlichen Körper und dessen Krankheiten, besonders bey gelähmten Gliedern us.w." - "Der Regensburger Arzt Johann Gottlieb Schäffer (1720-1795) fasste in seinem Lehrbuch "Die Electrische Medicin" (1752, 2. Auflage 1766) den theoretischen und praktischen Stand der zeitgenössischen Elektrotherapie zusammen. Wie Kratzenstein hielt Schäffer die "Kongestionen" des Blutes durch die elektrische Kur für heilbar. Hauptindikation seien jedoch die "gelähmten Glieder". Angriffspunkte des Elektrisierens seien Muskeln und Nerven, welche alle Körperbewegungen verursachten. Dabei verhalte sich, so Schäffer, der Muskel zum Nerven wie das Rad einer Maschine zur Antriebskraft, welche dem "Nervensaft" oder "Nervengeist" entspreche. Die Elektrotherapie wurde somit neurophysiologisch begründet: "Was der Nervensaft natürlicherweise durch seinen Einfluss in die Muskeln thut; das verrichtet die Electricität auf eine künstliche Art, und dieses alles um so mehr, weil die electrische Materie in vielen Stücken mit dem Nervensaft viele Aehnlichkeit und fast einerlei Eigenschaft zu besitzen scheint." - Schäffer schildert, wie er durch Elektrotherapie einer 56-jährigen Frau "cholerischen Temperaments" helfen konnte, die durch einen "Schlagfluss" auf einer Seite gelähmt war: "Ich wickelte die, an die drey Flaschen gewundene, und im Wasser sich befindende, meßingene Kette um den gelähmten Fuß; den gelähmten Arm aber brachte ich an die vor dem Bette in seidnen Schnüren schwebende metallene Röhre. Jedesmalen ließen sich nicht nur die Funken sehr lebhaft sehen, und mit einem dicken Knalle hören; sondern auch bey jedem Schlage eines erregten Funkens bewegte sich der lahme Fuß. Diese electrische Erschütterung nahm ich fast täglich eine 4telstunde lang vor . . . Nach der ersten Woche merkte man . . ., daß die Empfindung in den gelähmten Gliedern sich wieder einstellete." - Schäffers Vorschlag ist bemerkenswert, elektrisierte Substanzen als "electrische Arzney"- wie in einer Trinkkur - zu verabreichen: Wasser, Wein und Tee könnten leicht elektrisiert und dem Patienten dargereicht werden, wobei der elektrisierte Wein "einen viel stärkeren Geruch von sich giebt, auch eher berauschet, als ein unelektrisierter". Ähnliche Praktiken finden wir im Mesmerismus und Galvanismus wieder, wo zum Beispiel "magnetisiertes" beziehungsweise "galvanisiertes" Wasser als Lebenselexier angepriesen wurde."

        Varias cataractam extrahendi methodos succincte exponit et ad orationem qua munus professoris medicinae extraordinarii clementissime sibi demandatum d. VIII. octobr. MDCCLXVI. . D. August Gottlieb Richter.

      - Goettingae, Literis Joannis Henrici Schulzii, 1766, Kl.4°, 24 pp., 1 Kupferstichtafel, OBrosch.; Tafel minimal angeschnitten. Sehr selten - erste und einzige Ausgabe August Gottlieb Richter's (1742-1812) ersten Abhandlung zur Staar-Ausziehung! - "Mit der lateinischen Schrift über die verschiedenen Verfahren der Star-Ausziehung lud er zu seiner am 8.October 1766 abzuhaltenden Probe-Vorlesung "de dignitate chirurgiae cum medicina conjungendae" ein. Als Lehrer und Schriftsteller, Arzt entfaltete er eine unvergleichliche Thätigkeit. Bereits im Sommersemester 1767 hielt er, neben Vorlesungen über alle Zweige der Medizin und Chirurgie, ein Publicum über Augenkrankheiten, und wiederholte diese Vorlesung regelmäßig jedes 2. oder 3. Semester. Seine Schüler waren gefesselt und hingerissen." - "Richter's Hauptverdienst besteht darin, dass er die deutsche Chirurgie, welche durch Heister und Platner zu einer Wissenschaft erhoben worden, aber in ihrer Ausübung ein Handwerk geblieben, in eine Kunst umwandelte, indem er eine innige Wiedervereinigung der Chirurgie mit der Medizin herstellte. ." - Als Vater der deutschen Augenheilunde preist ihn 1811 Conrad J.M. Langenbeck, Prof. der Anatomie und Chirurgie von Göttingen." - "Der sonst mit sarkastischen Bemerkungen nicht zurückhaltende Beer besprach in seiner Bibliotheca Ophthalmica die Veröffentlichungen Richters stets mit größter Anerkennung und bezeichnete ihn als Vater der deutschen Wundärzte, ja selbst als seinen eigenen Lehrer, obwohl er nie Göttingen aufgesucht hatte." - Von besonderem Interesse sind die auf der Tafel abgebildeten 'deutschen Instrumente'. Richter schreibt selbst in seiner "Geschichte der Ausziehung des grauen Stars" (Chir. Bibl. 8/3) "Ich habe bereits 1766, nicht erst 1770, mein Messerchen in einem Programm beschrieben und abgebildet, und erst im Jahre 1772 mir durch einen meiner Schüler, der nach London reiste, Messer nach einem Muster, das ich ihm mitgab, in London verfertigen lassen"." Hirschberg - - "One of the most famous of German surgeons and ophthalmologists. In ophthalmology he rendered the special service of removing the cataract-extraction operation almost entirely from the hand of the intinerant quack and placing it in those of scientific surgeons." - Wood - - - Hirschberg 423-24; Münchow, p.330; Haller Bibl. Chir. II, 521; Beer Rep. III, 159; Hirsch-H IV, p.980; Becker Col. No.313 (only Engl. Ed., 1791). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Aurelian: Or, Natural History of English Insects; Namely, Moths and Butterflies. Together with their Plants on which they Feed; A faithful Account of their respective Changes; their usual Haunts when in the winged State; and their standard Names, as given and established by the worthy and ingenious Society of Aurelians.

      London, Printed for the Author, 1766. Folio (440 x 270mm). pp. (12), 81, with engraved frontispiece and 41 very fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary calf, gilt spine (skilfully rebacked). The very rare first issue of the first edition. The work was originally issued in fascicules and the first 2 text leaves as well as the first two plates of the first issue were printed on slightly smaller sheet size. The Botfield copy (Christie's 13 June 2002) was a similar copy. The colouring of this first issue is particularly refined and delicate and superior to the later editions. This beautiful beloved butterfly-book, went through a number of editions and a last edition appeared as late as 1840. The fine large plates were all drawn from life by the author and depict the butterflies and caterpillars on their feeding plants. Moses Harris (1730-c.1788) "began to take an active interest in entomology about the age of twelve and, in spite of his lack of education, was an accurate and original observer. He was, it is believed, the first to draw attention to the importance of wing neuration in the classification of lepidoptera and upon this principle he arranged the species in his published works, illustrating them in colour with a high degree of accuracy. Harris certainly contributed much to the knowledge of the science and was one of the leading entomologists of his century. He was also a miniature painter of no mean accomplishment ... (and) was undoubtedly one of the most outstanding authors of entomological literature during the eighteenth century and these publications have retained a popularity shared only by a few ..." (Lisney pp. 156-175). "Very little is known of the life of Moses Harris. By his own admission he was poorly educated; nevertheless, he became the leading entomologist of the eighteenth century and was certainly one of the best entomological artists. He seems to have collected extensively in the south-east of England... His greatest skills, however, were certainly painting and engraving. His standards of engraving were very high and he insisted on a high degree of accuracy. His illustrations were in constant demand by other authors... One of the eighteenth century's finest entomologists, Harris was an enthusiastic collector from an early age; he tells us he was just twelve years old when first taken to a meeting of the Aurelian Society, one of the first entomological societies... In the published work, each of the plates is dedicated to a subscriber. To publish such a work was an expensive undertaking and good subscribers were necessary, not only for their funding, but also because of the hope that they would attract others" (Gilbert, Butterfly Collectors and Painters pp. 46 & 110). Many errors in pagination as is correct for this issue. The frontispiece which is never coloured is a self-portrait of the author in a sylvian setting.//Lisney, 'A bibliography of British Lepidoptera 1608-1799' no. 229; Nissen ZBI, 1835.

        Elementa Entomologica. Cum CXXXV. Tabulae aere excusae floridisque coloribus distinctae. Einleitung in die Insectenkenntnis. CXXXV. ausgemahlte Kupfertafeln.

      Regensburg, gedruckt mit Weissischen Schriften, 1766. 4to (298 x 235mm). With 135 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine in 6 compartments, with black gilt lettered label and gilt lines (small skilful repair to spine). Rare first edition. A very fine uncut copy of this beautifully illustrated entomological work published during the Golden period of South German natural history book production. Jacob Schaeffer (sometimes spelled Schäffer) was a Bavarian clergyman-naturalist, a phenomenon so characteristic of the age of Enlightenment. His interest was broad and apart from publishing the most beautiful early iconography on fungi he published on birds, entomology and paper-making, however most of his works describe the fauna and flora of South Germany. Schaeffer had his own cabinet of curiosities, the Schaefferianum, which was visited by Goethe in 1786. The detailed and exact figures illustrate Schaeffer's system of classification, which was based on the wings and the number of tarsi. The fourth section 'Von den Werkzeugen der Behandlung und Sammlung der Insecten' is illustrated with 3 plates, 2 show entomological hunting material and how to preserve insects, the last plate shows a superb entomological baroque cabinet. The plates with the exception of three were printed on both sides of a leaf.//Evenhuis. Litt. Tax. Diptorum 1766.
