Toning to the contents with an occasional ink stain. Some of incomplete issues are torn with half a page remaining. A few other almanacs have large tears and chips.

His name is found on several pages (although the spelling of the last name maybe incorrect). The name of Elizabeth Grobes (sp?) is also located inside the grouping. No locations of the Grobes found inside. An interesting collection of almanacs with hand written entries in the margins and on the blank sides of paper. Information recorded includes deaths of named people, marriages, activities, religious inscriptions, and some calligraphy. One entry, located in the bottom margin in the month of March 1763, reads - "Isaac Phillips shot himself the 29th of this month 1763". Another entry at the bottom margin of April 1762 states - "Our cart wheals ware maid April the day Seventeen Hundred & Sixty Two.

BECCARIA Cesare
S.E., A Philadelphie (ma Parigi), 1766. In-8° (cm. 20 x 12), pp. XXVIII,148, 1 bianca, mezza pelle con titolo e fregi in oro al dorso. Bella copia assai fresca e genuina. Ristampa della prima edizione della traduzione francese col solo testo "Dei delitti e delle pene", pubblicatasi a Parigi col falso luogo di Losanna; anche la presente ediz. apparve a Parigi, ma col falso luogo di Filadelfia. Dei delitti e delle pene è un breve saggio scritto dall'illuminista italiano Cesare Beccaria pubblicato nel 1764. È senz'altro il testo più noto dell'Illuminismo italiano se si considera la sua fortuna in Italia e in Europa e la sua influenza sui pensatori cronologicamente successivi. In questo breve pamphlet Beccaria si pone con spirito illuminista delle domande circa le modalità di accertamento dei delitti e circa le pene allora in uso. L'opera, stampata per la prima volta a Livorno da Marco Coltellini, incontrò un notevole successo ed ebbe vasta popolarità in tutta Europa. Fu apprezzata nella Milano illuminista, fu vista come il prodotto dell'attività innovatrice in Francia (dove incontrò l'apprezzamento entusiastico dei filosofi dell'Encyclopédie, di Voltaire e dei philosophes più prestigiosi che lo tradussero con le note di Denis Diderot e lo considerarono come un vero e proprio capolavoro), e messa subito in pratica dalla zarina Caterina II di Russia. L'opera fu scritta in italiano e pubblicata anonima nel 1764; due anni dopo essa fu tradotta in francese dall'abate André Morellet. In francese l'opera conobbe una notevole diffusione, poiché in questo periodo era forte l'egemonia d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Handcoloured etching/engraving on a verge type handlaid paper. Description: Separately published master print, published in 1766. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text.

Antoine de Marcenay de Ghuy (1724-1811) was a French publisher/printer, printmaker and painter. He was an etcher who worked in the Rembrandtesque manner. Gerard Dou (or Dow/Douw, 1613-1675) was a Dutch Golden Age painter, specialised in genre scenes and his candle-lit night scenes. Condition: Very good, given age. Margins and edges a little discoloured. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Profesionally matted, not examined out of matting.

GIANNONE, Pietro (1676-1748)
Giambattista Pasquali, 1766. Tre volumi (tomi I, II e IV, manca il tomo III) in 4° (mm 254x175); pp. (20), 411, (1), con (2) c. di tav. f.t.; (4), 152 (i.e. 448); VII, (1), 511, (1). Legature in mezza pelle con doppio tassello, titolo, filetti e fregi in oro al dorso. Piatti marmorizzati, tagli verdi. All'antiporta del primo volume ritratto dell'Autore nitidamente inciso da Baratti. Sempre al primo volume una tavola incisa raffigurante diverse monete antiche. Marche tipografiche ai frontespizi. Gradevoli testatine, finalini e capilettera calcografici. Nel tomo I "...contiensi la polizia del Regno sotto Romani, Goti, Greci, e Longobardi", nel II "...la polizia del Regno sotto Normanni, e Svevi", nel IV "...la politia del Regno sotto Austriaci". Quarta edizione della principale opera del celebre storico e letterato Pietro Giannone (Ischitella di Napoli, 1676 - 1748), che dette alle stampe la "Storia civile" nel 1723 dopo venti anni di lavoro. Diverse e contrastanti interpretazioni sui fatti contenuti nel testo portarono alla scomunica dell'A. che fu costretto a lasciare rapidamente il Regno. Il testo, invece, fu messo all'Indice, causando la distruzione di un numero assai elevato di copie della prima edizione. Perseguitato in tutta Europa, l'A. fu imprigionato nel 1736 e rimase in carcere fino alla fine dei suoi giorni. Ebbe riabilitazione postuma, e le sue opere furono ristampate numerose volte. Alla presente edizione il Pasquali fece seguire, nel 1768, due volumi delle Opere postume ed inedite del Giannone. .

In der Waltherischen Hof-Buchhandlung, Dresden 1766 - 4°. X, 158 S., (6) Bll. Lederband d.Zt. auf fünf Bünden mit Rückenschild und –vergoldung. Kapitale etwas bestoßen, etwas berieben. Der Buchbinder hat eine besonders in Skandinavien verbreitete Technik angewandt, bei der der Rücken vor dem Vergolden schwarz eingefärbt wurde. Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke IV,302,12). – Papierbedingt wie immer leicht gebräunt, zwei Bll. etwas stärker; gelegentlich kleine Braunflecken. Handschriftl. Besitzeinträge „Gianelli 1786“ und „C.Horneman 1807“ a.d. Titel. Der dänische Miniatur- und Pastellmaler CHRISTIAN HORNEMAN (1765 Kopenhagen 1844) war verheiratet mit einer Schwester des Bildhauers und Medailleurs PIETRO LEONARDO GIANELLI (1767 Kopenhagen 1807); nach dessen Tod kam das Buch offensichtlich in die Bibliothek HORNEMANs, von dem wohl auch der handschriftl. Zusatz des Verfassernamens a.d. Titel stammt. Beide Künstler spielten eine herausragende Rolle im Kulturleben Kopenhagens. Ein langer alter handschriftl. Eintrag zu WINCKELMANN a.d. Vorsatz, ein paar alte Marginalien im Text. WINCKELMANNs Versuch, den Gebrauch der Allegorie bei den Alten theoretisch für seine Zeit nutzbar zu machen, fand Zuspruch (z.B. bei GOETHEs Zeichenlehrer A.F.OESER) wie Widerspruch. Prinzipiell abgelehnt wurde WINCKELMANNs Ansatz von K.P.MORITZ (Die Signatur des Schönen. 1788/9). „Die Allegorie spielt eine Schlüsselrolle in WINCKELMANNs Ästhetik, darum kommt ihrer Kritik von MORITZens Seite aus auch einem Grundsatzkonflikt in der Kunstreflexion gleich.

WILLIAMS, Anna.
Printed for T. Davis ., London 1766 - First edition. Anna Williams, blind poet and companion of Samuel Johnson, had a ground-floor apartment in his house, from which she supervised the household management and expenses. 'In 1766 her Miscellanies in Prose and Verse was published as a handsome quarto by Thomas Davies. Johnson contributed a preface and several prose and verse pieces. The work had been first advertised in 1750, and there were waspish claims from Anna's friends that Johnson had not exerted himself in its production, but the publication was moderately successful, and earned the author about £100' (Oxford DNB).Very uncommon, as one might expect from Mrs. Thrale's statement: 'I never saw it on any Table but my own.' 4to (256 × 192 mm), pp. [4], 184; title with woodcut fleuron; old waterstain to lower forecorners of a few leaves at front and rear; contemporary smooth, sprinkled calf, spine with 5 raised bands, red morocco label lettered in gilt; slightly rubbed, minor restoration to headcap and foot of spine; two old inscriptions (John Bunting, Lidgate and J. Brill, Northwold, both Suffolk) to front free endpaper; a very good copy. [Fleeman, pp. 1139-42, Courteney & Nicholl Smith, p. 111.] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Je gage que je vais vous réduire à avouer, contre toute raison, qu'il pourra y avoir un jour du commerce entre la Terre & la Lune. Remettez-vous dans l'esprit l'état où étoit l'Amérique avant qu'elle eût été découverte par Christophe Colomb. (.) Il est vrai qu'il faudra traverser ce grand espace d'air & de ciel qui est entre la Terre & la Lune. Mais ces grandes Mers paroissent-elles aux Américains plus propres à être traversées??

MACQUER, Pierre Joseph.
A Paris: Chez Lacombe. Second (first pirated) edition of the first modern chemical dictionary. Although technical dictionaries had appeared earlier, this was the first attempt to cover the whole field of chemistry, pure and applied, in an encyclopaedic manner. The 26-page introduction traces the progress of chemistry from its origins to the time of Stahl and Boerhaave. The book was an immediate success and it was several times reprinted and translated; it produced many imitators. There are substantial entries for glass and wine. Cole 864. DSB, VIII, pp. 618-624. Partington III, pp. 80-90. Neville pp. 112-113. This rare pirated edition appeared in the same year as the first; Cole examined 11 copies dated 1766 but none was of this edition. See Parkinson, Breakthroughs, 1766.2 volumes, small 8vo, pp. xxiv, 616; 1 leaf, pp. (3)-688. Contemporary mottled sheep, spines gilt in compartments with two red morocco labels, marbled endpapers, red edges (a few wormholes or short wormtracks in spines and lower covers, top of spine of vol. 2 chipped). A few gatherings printed on different paper and lightly browned, but a good set.

Volume 2 has an engraving intended to be bound facing the title page of that volume, but bound in opposite page 3, as well as an engraving bound in its rightful place opposite the start of 'The Drummer Or, the Haunted-House' (p 183).

HOUARD (David).
Rouen, Richard Lallemant, 1766. Deux volumes in-4 de XLVIII -(2)ff. (Privilège , Table), 772 pp. et (2)ff., 495 pages. Exemplaire sur beau papier vergé, intérieur frais malgré quelques feuillets roussis. Plein veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés, pièce de titre et tomaison de maroquin rouge, double filet doré sur les coupes, roulette intérieure. Charnières frottées, 3 mors fendus sur quelques centimètres, petits accrocs aux coiffes et aux pièces de tomaisons, coins usés. Reliure de l'époque. Cet ouvrage est en fait une traduction française annotée du livre que le jurisconsulte Littleton composa en 1475. "Dans ses Institutes, Littleton est celui de tous les jurisconsultes anglo-normands, dit Houard, qui a le mieux approfondi les lois françaises, telles qu'elles ont été données à la nation par Guillaume le Conquérant. Il porte le scrupule, selon son commentateur Coke, jusqu'à distinguer en chaque article de son recueil ce qui est la commune loi, c'est à dire la loi amenée de France par Guillaume, d'avec ce qui a été institué pour l'explication de cette loi par les chartes, statuts ou édits postérieurs."
