Le Cat, Claude Nicolas
Rey Amsterdam: Rey, 1766. 1st edition. Le Cat, Claude Nicolas (1700-1768). Parallele de la taille laterale . . . avec celle du lithotome-cache. 8vo. xiv, 16, 292, [12]pp. 7 folding plates. Amsterdam: Rey, 1766. 193 x 124 mm. Quarter sheep c. 1766, rubbed but internally fine. Gilt leather bookplate. First Edition. Le Cat's summary work on the famous controversy between his gorgeret-cystitome and Frere Cume's lithotome-cache, which went on for 20 years. Famed in the sciences as well as surgery, Le Cat organized the Royal Academy of Sciences of Rouen and took on the likes of Haller and Rousseau in disputes. He invented several devices for lithotomy, of which the gorgeret-cystitome was the most ingenious. It was a multipurpose instrument that acted as a gorgeret when closed, a dilator when opened lengthways, and a lithotome when a blade was pushed out from its convex margin. To facilitate its use it had a button on the beak of the cystitome and the edges of the groove in the sound were turned in so that the blade could not become disengaged. While Le Cat had the support of most lithotomists for his device, the lithotome-cache when suitably modified proved its worth over and above the doubtful reputation of the surgeon-priest Fr. Cume. Murphy, History of Urology, pp. 110-13, illustrating instruments. Leonardo. Hirsch. Kiefer 350. Wellcome III, p. 468. Waller 5658.

[Canada]:
[Various places. 1766-1768].. Twenty manuscript items of various size and pagination, as described below, written variously in English and French. Overall bright, clean, and legible. Very good. A diverse archive concerning issues that remained between Great Britain and France regarding Canada after the close of the French and Indian War. Though the 1763 Treaty of Paris officially ended the war, a large number of flash-point issues remained. These circumstances occasioned a sort of cold war between France and Great Britain for the remainder of the decade, as each worked to undermine the designs of the other, all the while carrying out necessary negotiations. This environment of intrigue and subtle conflict is born out in the present archive. Most of the papers here seem to be associated with the British ambassador in Paris, the Earl of Rochford, and his negotiations with the French Foreign Office over various points that needed to be resolved. The other communications, from Lord Shelburne, the Secretary of State for the Southern Department, and notes on various spying activities, would also be consistent with the Ambassador's papers, and it is likely that this is where this group of material originated. Many of the letters are addressed to Rochford. Whether the material came from Rochford's papers or was passed to Shelburne is unclear. The items are listed below, categorized by the language in which they are written.

TREW, Christoph Jakob (1695-1769)
Nuremberg: 1766. Etching, with engraving, coloured by hand, by A.L. Wirsing. Very good condition. 13 7/8 x 9 1/8 inches. 18 7/8 x 13 3/4 inches. A very fine image from the work described by Dunthorne as 'one of the finest records of the cultivated flowers of the period' and by Blunt (p. 166) as 'one of the most decorative florilegia of the mid-eighteenth century.' A complete copy of this work sold for almost $1,000,000 in London in 2002. The great characteristic of this beautiful plate, from Trew's Hortus Nitidissimus, is the way in which the watercolour and bodycolour painting almost entirely eclipses the engraved lines. Although the work was actually started by Johann Michael Seligmann (1720- 1762), the engravings were based on the collection of flower drawings owned by the botanist and bibliophile Christoph Trew, a distinguished physician of Nuremberg. Georg Ehret (1708-1770), who enjoyed Trew's patronage from 1732 and traveled widely on his behalf before settling in London in 1736, produced the designs for 40 of the eventual total of 188 plates. The remainder were drawn up by a team of local artists, including J.C. Keller, Professor of Drawing at Erlangen University, the court painter Nikolaus Eisenberger, and A.L. Wirsing. Cf. Brunet V, 943; cf. Dunthorne 310; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 144; cf. Harvard Arnold, p. 700; cf. Johnston Cleveland 493; cf. Nissen BBI 1995; cf. Pritzel 9500

BELLIN, Jacques Nicolas (1703-72)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le Cat, Claude Nicolas
Rey, Amsterdam. Le Cat, Claude Nicolas (1700-1768). Parallele de la taille laterale . . . avec celle du lithotome-cache. 8vo. xiv, 16, 292, [12]pp. 7 folding plates. Amsterdam: Rey, 1766. 193 x 124 mm. Quarter sheep c. 1766, rubbed but internally fine. Gilt leather bookplate. First Edition. Le Cat's summary work on the famous controversy between his gorgeret-cystitome and Frere Cume's lithotome-cache, which went on for 20 years. Famed in the sciences as well as surgery, Le Cat organized the Royal Academy of Sciences of Rouen and took on the likes of Haller and Rousseau in disputes. He invented several devices for lithotomy, of which the gorgeret-cystitome was the most ingenious. It was a multipurpose instrument that acted as a gorgeret when closed, a dilator when opened lengthways, and a lithotome when a blade was pushed out from its convex margin. To facilitate its use it had a button on the beak of the cystitome and the edges of the groove in the sound were turned in so that the blade could not become disengaged. While Le Cat had the support of most lithotomists for his device, the lithotome-cache when suitably modified proved its worth over and above the doubtful reputation of the surgeon-priest Fr. Cume.

[Duval Dumanoir & Duval d'Espremenil]
Paris; De l'Imprimerie de Michel Lambert: 1766.. Bound with- "Arrest de la Cour de Parlement, qui prive Thomas Artur de Lally..." dated May 6th, 1766 and "Arrest de la Cour de Parlement qui condamme Armand-Antonin-Francois Fretard de Gadeville, & Jacques-Hugues de Chaponnay..." dated May 10th, 1766. A sad chapter in the history of the Seven Years War, ending with the French loss of India and the May 9th, 1766 beheading of General Thomas-Arthur, comte de Lally, [1702-1766]. This volume is the most complete of two collections of records published relating to the loss of French India, compiled from the official records by the heirs of the late French Governor of India. It ranges from the first action in which General Lally's troops were engaged through the withdrawal of the French from India. Lally was the son of an Irish Jacobite and a French noblewoman who joined the French army while still in his teens. In 1744 he was put in command of the "Irish Brigade" at Fontenoy, and was awarded a field promotion to brigadier. Following several more years of distinguished service, in 1756, General Lally was given command of the French expedition to India at the outbreak of the Seven Years War. It would have been better had he stayed home. Lally reached Pondicherry, the capitol of French India, in 1758. Following initial successes he met a series of defeats and setbacks, including a failed siege at Madras. Capable as a soldier but proud and disdainful as a man, Lally was roundly disliked by his men and officers, as well as the local Indian citizenry, a situation which cannot hav … [Click Below for Full Description]

Linnaeus, Carl von (ed.) and Pehr Loefling
Berlin and Stralsund: Gottlieb August Lange, 1766. First German edition. Hard Cover. Octavo. Contemporary japon vellum with a hand-lettered spine, xxxii, 408 pp., 2 folding engraved plates. Linnaeus sent many of his students abroad, rejoicing in the plants and other natural specimens that he received from them but grieving bitterly when a student died of disease or hardship. As a posthumous tribute to their dedication, Linnaeus often edited and published their travel accounts. Pehr Loefling, Linnaeus' favorite pupil, died in Venezuela while on just such a collecting foray. First published in 1758, this is the first German edition of Loefling's travels edited by Linnaeus and translated by Alexander Bernhard Kolpin. The volume contains Loefling's journal and a catalog of the plants that he observed during his travels. The two copper plates depict plant specimens and both are in fine condition. Light browning to the text, library stamps on the title and dedications pages, minor rubbing and chipping to the covers, otherwise a very good copy. Sabin 41772. Soulsby 3589. DSB VIII: 374-380.
