        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.

        Les journées amusantes.

      Par la Compagnie 1766 - - Par la Compagnie, A Amsterdam 1766, 8 tomes en 4 Vol. in-12 (9,5x16,5cm), relié. - Mention de huitième édition, illustrée de huit frontispices non signés. Les journées amusantes ont été originellement publiées de 1722 à 1731. Pages de titres en rouge et noir. Pleine Basane blonde d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. 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. Malgré les défauts signalés, l'ensemble est de bonne tenue. 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.

      1766. Fine. [EHON] Tsukioka Settei. EHON SAGASHIGUSA [ONNA BUYU YOSO-OI KURABE]. Edo: Suharaya Mohei & Osaka: Ono Kihei, Meiwa 3 [1766]. 3 vols in one, string- bound Japanese-style in later covers with brushed title label. 26.8 X 18.4 cm, appears to be complete as gappon. Settei here signs himself Tsukioka Masanobu. One of the finest and most powerful of the mid-18th century ukiyo-e masters. The line is virile, the compositions daring - a thoroughly satisfying work - BUT, though it has been repaired, many of the illustrations (at least a fifth of them) have been irremedially damaged. 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."

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.

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.

        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.

        A General History of the Science and Practice of Music

      Printed for T. Payne and Son, at the Mews-Gate, London 1766 - Five volumes, complete, including an index and appendix Quarto. early 20th century three quarter brown morocco over brown cloth, spines with raised bands and lettered in gilt, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Profusely illustrated with full page plates, full page music notations and in text illustrations. With a handwritten slip from Queen Square, Westminster, dated 29th Feb. 1766, to Mr. Nicholls, thanking him for "his curious appendix to Mr. Mores's dissertation" and "takes this opportunity of assuring him that the name Fortier page 98 is right and not mistaken for Fournier". Sir John Hawkins (1719 Ð 1789) was an English author and friend of Dr. Samuel Johnson and Horace Walpole. He was part of Johnson's various clubs but later left The Literary Club after a disagreement with some of Johnson's other friends. His friendship with Johnson continued and he was made one of the executors of Johnson's will. He married the heiress Sidney Storer and was the father of the novelist Laetitia Hawkins.During his life, he wrote many works, including A General History of the Science and Practice of Music and his Life of Samuel Johnson in memory of his friend. He was appointed as a magistrate and later became Chairman of the Quarter Session for Middlesex. He was knighted in 1772 for his services. It took Hawkins 16 years to write A General History of the Science and Practice of Music which was published in 1776. Although this publication was somewhat respected, it soon was overshadowed, with the help of the likes such as Dr Callcott who composed a mockery song against Hawkins, by Charles Burney's General History of Music (1776Ð89). However, in years to come Hawkins's music history was considered to be superior to Burney's music history (compare the 1875 edition of Hawkins's work). Particularly, Burney's discourse on Handel and Bach was viewed as being inadequate. - wikipedia.

      Naples 1766 - Sir William Hamilton was sent to Naples in 1764 as chief British envoy to the Bourbon King Ferdinand IV. Inspired by the cultural heritage of Italy, Hamilton developed a great passion for archaeology and the study of antiquities, and soon embarked on a project to publish illustrations of the objects that so fascinated him. Ferdinand IV, as official guardian of the treasures of Pompeii and Herculaneum, encouraged the wealthy gentlemen of his kingdom to form private “cabinets” of antiquities. Some of these gentlemen hired their own workmen, while others bought from scavengers and displayed, or resold, a rich harvest of pottery, sculpture, jewelry, metalwork and other artifacts. Hamilton assembled just such a collection, and then chose the finest examples of excavated pottery art for his publication. Other objects came from the Royal Collection, lent generously by the Ferdinand IV. Hamilton was driven in his project by one particular ambition: he wanted to change completely and indelibly the taste of Europe, to “.annihilate those Gothic forms which habit alone renders supportable.” His Collection of Etruscan, Greek and Roman Antiquities had two kinds of illustrations. The most famous are the narrative and pictorial plates, each one with decorative motifs taken from a vase, cup or plate. They exhibit the classical black and terra-cotta color scheme, with touches of accent coloring on some of the plates. The subject matter ranges, as it did on the original ceramic pieces, from activities of the mythical gods and creatures, to feasting and the daily life of ancient peoples. Each image is beautifully detailed and has rich border decorations. Hamilton also provided black and white perspective drawings of the pieces so that artists and craftsmen could follow the ancient forms “with as much truth and precision as if he had the Originals themselves in his possession.” In the end, Hamilton’s acumen and persistence were rewarded. His book became a virtual dictionary of Classical form throughout the l8th and l9th centuries, while his collection became a cornerstone of the British Museum’s Department of Classical Antiquities.

        Manuscript Deed]: Made between William Copper [of Philadelphia] and William Fisher, 21 May 1766

      Philadelphia 1766 - Vellum manuscript deed. Made between William Cooper of Philadelphia and his son-in-law William Fisher on 21 May, 1766, and witnessed by His Majesty's Justice of the Peace for the County of Philadelphia, Samuel Shoemaker. One vellum sheet measuring approximately 10.5" x 18.5". Near fine. The deed is signed and sealed by Cooper and Shoemaker (each signature with their respective red wax seal), and two other witnesses: Cooper's daughter Abigail Fisher and Richard Matlack, another close relation of the Cooper family from a prominent Quaker family in Burlington, New Jersey.William Cooper, the lineal descendant of the first settler of Camden, New Jersey, owned considerable real estate in Philadelphia along the Delaware River. The Deed is an early example of an American peppercorn lease: it sets forth the terms whereby Cooper "hath granted bargained and sold and by these presents [five shillings] doth grant bargain and sell unto the said William Fisher, a certain Messuage, Tenement and Lot or Piece of Land situate on the north side of Mulberry Street . yielding and paying therefore the rent of one pepper corn only . if demanded." In other works, Cooper thereby transfers the entire lot to Fisher and his heirs.Philadelphia Quaker Samuel Shoemaker, a successful merchant, co-founder of the Pennsylvania Hospital, and intimate friend of Benjamin West, had established close ties to Cooper when he was attorney for the Pennsylvania Land Company in London (aka, "the London Company"). He served as Justice and Mayor of Philadelphia, and was a member of the Provincial Assembly in 1771-1772. A Loyalist during the revolution, he went to New York and then to England, and returned to America in 1786, living for some time in Burlington, New Jersey, and afterwards in Philadelphia. A remarkably well-preserved Colonial Era document that reveals the close association between the Shoemaker, Cooper, and Matlack families of Philadelphia and New Jersey. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
