Whytt, Robert:
Leipzig, Fritsch 1766.. XIV, 394 S., 4 Bll. HLdr. d. Zt. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. - Heirs of Hippocrates 923 (Original-Ausgabe Edinburgh 1765): "Whytt, a pupil of Monro primus and predecessor of William Cullen in the chair of medicine at Edinburgh, was one of the foremost physicians of the eighteenth century because of his contributions to clinical medicine and particularly to the understanding of reflex action. His clear description of tuberculous meningitis, his explanation of the sentient (sensitivity) principle in involuntary action, and his discussion of the significance of emotions in the natural history of organic diseases easily offset his mistaken emphasis on the value of lime water in the treatment of calculi in the urinary tract. In this work, which Fielding H. Garrison calls `the first important English treatise on neurology after Willis` (An introduction to the history of medicine. 4th ed. Philadelphia, 1929, p. 326), Whytt discusses the significance of emotions in the pathogenesis of nervousness, hypochondria, and hyteria". - Rücken starker berieben und bestoßen.

Joseph Addison and Richard Steele
London - A. Donaldson, 1766 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of The Spectator in a contemporary binding. The Spectator was a daily publication founded by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele in England, lasting from 1711 to 1712. Each paper, or number, was approximately 2,500 words long, and the original run consisted of 555 numbers, beginning on 1 March 1711. These were collected into seven volumes. The paper was revived without the involvement of Steele in 1714, appearing thrice weekly for six months, and these papers when collected formed the eighth volume, which is present here with all the others. The stated goal of The Spectator was to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality. . . to bring philosophy out of the closets and libraries, schools and colleges, to dwell in clubs and assemblies, at tea-tables and coffeehouses. The Spectator was popular and widely read in the late 18th and 19thcentury. Its prose style, and its marriage of morality and advice with entertainment, were considered exemplary. Contributors to these volumes include Pope andSwift. Each volume features an engraved frontispiece and ahalf title. Complete in eight volumes. Condition: Uniformly bound in contemporary full calf. Externally, generally smart with very minor rubbing to some boards and some wear to extremities, most prominently to head and tail of spines. 7 of 16 joints starting. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright and clean throughout with only very occasional spots. Overall: VERY GOOD..

Morell, Charles; [Ridley, James Kenneth]
VG : in very good condition without dust jacket. Minor rubbing and sunning to leather covers. Sm. tear to pp. 315-316 (vol. I). Lacking one rear endpaper from volume II Third Edition Full leather covers 360mm x 230mm (14" x 9"). 357pp, 367pp. Fourteen engraved plates after A Walker. James Kenneth Ridley (1736?1765) is mainly remembered for his Oriental pastiche Tales of the Genii, a set of stories based on those of the Arabian Nights. This was originally published in two volumes in 1764, was issued under the pen name "Sir Charles Morell", supposedly British Ambassador at Bombay. Ridley's Tales were allegedly composed by an imam named Horam and translated from a Persian manuscript; in actuality, they were products of Ridley's imagination. The Tales belong to a genre of imitation Orientalia popular in the 18th century; in its own time and after, Ridley's book was compared to Samuel Johnson's Rasselas. Ridley's compilation was popular, and went through seven editions by 1861; German and French translations also appeared.

[Daldansen.] WENNERSTEDT, Carl Gustaf.
Örebro, J. Lindh, 1766. 8:o. 56 s. Enstaka fläckar. Häftad, i senare pappersomslag med handskriven pappersetikett. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Warmholtz 6201. Stora daldansen 1743 var det sista av de stora bondeupproren, orsak denna gång var dock mindre Dalarnas gamla upprorstradition än försämrade ekonomiska förutsättningar för Dalarna, såväl gällande den viktiga gränshandeln som hemslöjden. Den 4500 man starka upprorshären lämnade Falun den 11 juni, tvingade landshövdingen Wennerstedt och andra ståndspersoner med sig, och tågade mot Stockholm, där nervositeten steg. Några av de mer aggresiva tågade in i Stockholm och den 22 juni avlossades de första skotten på Norrmalmstorg (nuv. Gustav Adolfs torg). Ganska snart var dock bondehären fullständigt slagen, och ledarna avrättades. Warmholtz finner det besynnerligt att Wennerstedt själv låtit trycka denna berättelse

BISHOP (Samuel):
Londini, Typis D. Leach. Prostant Venales apud J. Newbery et J. Water, 1766. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 4to, 258 x 200 mms., pp. [xvi], 312 [i. e., 231, 232 Errata], contemporary calf, red morocco label; joints slightly cracked, top of spine slightly chipped, corners worn, but generally a good to very good copy, with the autograph and date "J Monro 1771" on the top margin of the recto of the front free end-paper, "Irene Osgood" on the top margin of the title-page. John Monro, M. D. subscribed for two copies, and this is almost certainly one of his two copies. Monro (1715 - 1791) was educated at Merchant Taylors' School, London, where Samuel Bishop (1731 - 1795) was first a student, then a teacher (starting in 1758) and later headmaster. Bishop and Taylor were both at St. John's College, Oxford, though not at the same time. As would seem clear from this subscriber's copy, the circulation of this privately-printed volume had a number of subscribers from both Merchant Taylors' School and St. John's, and the volume is dedicated to the alumnae of Merchant Taylors'. Among the other subscribers are George Colman, David Garrick, and the publisher Francis Newbery, also an alumnus of Merchant Taylors'. The text is in English (verso) with Latin translation (recto), many by Bishop, but including poems by Matthew Prior, William Shenstone, William Collins, Thomas Percy, John Gay, and Thomas Parnell, among others.

MESMER, Franz Anton.
First edition, first issue, of the manifesto of Mesmerism. <br/><br/> ❧PMM 225; Grolier 47; Norman M4; Heirs of Hippocrates 1013.<br/><br/> "The basis of Mesmer's fame has been described as the creative function of an erroneous idea. In his doctoral thesis in medicine at the University of Vienna, <i>Dissertatio physico-medica deplanetarum influxu</i> (1766), Mesmer revived the ancient doctrine of the influence exerted by the gravitational forces of the sun, moon, and planets on human well-being. He believed that health was the result of harmony between the bodily organs and planetary gravitation (a force he called 'animal gravitation'); disease was then a disharmony, and the purpose of treatment was to restore harmony or equilibrium. In 1775, inspired by the experiments of the Jesuit astronomer Maximilian Hell, Mesmer began to use magnets in his treatment of patients, producing in them first a trance or somnambulic state in which they were neither asleep nor awake, and then convulsions or a crisis that led to a cure. Accordingly, he now attempted to explain his treatment as due to 'animal magnetism' in contrast to 'mineral magnetism.' He later found that he did not need the magnet to obtain these results but could produce them merely by touch. <br/><br/> "Mesmer's practice and the claims he made aroused so much controversy and criticism in the medical community of Vienna that he decided in 1778 to move to Paris. Arriving on the eve of the French Revolution, he quickly captured the imagination of the Parisian public to the exclusion of nearly everything else; in fact, … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Stamp Act]:
London: Printed for J. Almon, 1766 [i.e. 1765].. 46,[1]pp. 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 affects 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. HOWES N31, "aa." SABIN 52213. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 38a.

Homer; editor: Anne Le Fèvre Dacier
Leiden: J. De Wetstein & Fils. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1766. Hardcover. Engraved; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; Author: Homer - In the Western classical tradition, Homer is the author of the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey," and is revered as the greatest of ancient Greek epic poets. These epics lie at the beginning of the Western canon of literature, and have had an enormous influence on the history of literature. When he lived is unknown. Herodotus estimates that Homer lived 400 years before his own time, which would place him at around 850 BC, while other ancient sources claim that he lived much nearer to the supposed time of the Trojan War, in the early 12th century BC. Most modern researchers place Homer in the 7th or 8th centuries BC. The formative influence of the Homeric epics in shaping Greek culture was widely recognized, and Homer was described as the teacher of Greece. Homer's works, which are about fifty percent speeches, provided models in persuasive speaking and writing that were emulated throughout the ancient and medieval Greek worlds. Fragments of Homer account for nearly half of all identifiable Greek literary papyrus finds. Volume I: Introduction to the Greek of Homer translated by Madame Dacier & comments containing two prefaces of this lady, one for the Iliad, and the other for the Odyssey, followed by Life of Homer & c. In addition, the preface of Mr. Pope on the Iliad, his essay on the life & the writings of Homer, and other of its rooms, the same as Mr. Abbe Banier, Volumes II-IV: Iliad; volumes V-VII: Odyssee.

III, 247 und IX, 277. - Im Kern eine Übersetzung von Maffeis beiden Traktaten über die Hexerei. Simon verzichtet auf eine vollständige Übertragung des Textes, weil er Tartarottis Schriften (gegen die Maffei polemisiert) nicht auch noch übertragen wollte. Maffei verwarf den Hexenglauben, nicht aber die Magie. Simon lehnt beide ab. - Das Werk war erstmals 1761 unter dem Titel "Das große weltbetrügende Nichts" ebenfalls bei Stahel erschienen; es war eine der Hauptquellen für Sterzingers Rede gegen den Hexenwahn, mit der er 1766 in der Münchner Akademie den bayrischen Hexenkrieg auslöste. - Umschlag leicht lädiert.

(BEER)
Woodcut city arms on title. 1 p.l., 102 pp. Small 4to, cont. green boards. [Göttingen]: E.D. Alberti [for the "Bürgermeister und Rath der Stadt Göttingen"], [1766]. The brewing of beer in Germany has been highly regulated since 1156 when Emperor Frederick I gave the city of Augsburg the first city code of law, the "Justitia Civitatis Augustensis." This contained the first secular beer regulation in Germany, in which the emperor decreed that the manufacturing of impure beer would be punished. The famous Reinheitsgebot, issued in 1516, gave the government the tools to regulate the ingredients, processes, and quality of beer sold to the public. Brewing was (and still is, to a degree) a very local industry in Germany with each town having one or more breweries, each producing beers which do not travel far. The present work governs the brewing of beer in Göttingen. Divided into seven parts, the first discusses who has the right to brew beer. The following sections describe the materials which could be used, methods of brewing, employees and their responsibilities, standards of cleanliness, and correct storage and handling. The final pages give prices for various beers and the names, with addresses, of the residents allowed to brew. Fine copy and rare. OCLC locates no copy outside of Germany. .

Volume II has copperplate "Table of Consanguinity" and fold-out "Table of Descents." Quarto (10-1/2" x 8-1/2"). Recent morocco, raised bands and gilt titles to spines, endpapers renewed. Negligible shelfwear, light toning to text, faint dampspotting in places, upper corners of pp. 217-222 of Volume II lacking with minor loss to text. (We can supply these leaves in facsimile). Early owner signature to head of Volume III title page, illegible due to trimming, copious contemporary annotations in fine hand throughout Volume I, later signature (of H.L. Bradford Lawrence) to front free endpaper. * First edition of Volumes III and IV, second edition of Volumes I and II. The most influential publication in the history of modern Anglo-American law, the Commentaries on the Laws of England is based on a course of lectures delivered at Oxford University. Because they were not intended for aspiring practitioners, they described general principles rather than practical specifics. Sensitive to the systematizing trends of the day and the prestige of the natural sciences, he described the common law as an intricate, well-designed system akin to Newton's mechanistic universe. Written in an eighteenth-century hand, the annotations to Volume I are quite interesting, some are glosses, others expand upon or dispute Blackstone's points. The first editions of Volumes I and II were published in 1765 and 1766. By the time … [Click Below for Full Description]

William Blackstone
Oxford - The Clarendon Press, 1766 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An early edition of William Blackstone's treatise Commentaries on the Laws of England with some tables including one that folds out to volume two. Sir William Blackstone KC SL (1723 - 1780) was an English jurist, judge and Tory politician of the eighteenth century. He is most noted for writing the Commentaries on the Laws of England. Second edition. Two volumes of four. The Commentaries on the Laws of England are an influential 18th-century treatise on the common law of England, originally published by the Clarendon Press at Oxford, 17651769. The work is divided into four volumes, on the rights of persons, the rights of things, of private wrongs and of public wrongs. Long regarded as the leading work on the development of English law and played a role in the development of the American legal system. They were in fact the first methodical treatise on the common law suitable for a lay readership since at least the Middle Ages. The common law of England has relied on precedent more than statute and codifications and has been far less amenable than the civil law, developed from the Roman law, to the needs of a treatise. The Commentaries were influential largely because they were in fact readable, and because they met a need. The work is as much an apologia for the legal system of the time as it is an explanation; even when the law was obscure, Blackstone sought to make it seem rational, just, and inevitable that things should be how they were.

Blackstones Commentaries are "a monument of the Anglo-American legal and political system and one of the key influences on the thought of the Founding Fathers and the shaping of the Constitution. All our formative documentsthe Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Federalist Papers, and the seminal decisions of the Supreme Court under John Marshallwere drafted by attorneys steeped in Sir William Blackstones Commentaries on the Laws of England. So much was this the case that the Commentaries rank second only to the Bible as a literary and intellectual influence on the history of American institutions (Robert Ferguson). Blackstones impact on American political and legal thinking was profound and immediate. In 1775 Edmund Burke observed that nearly as many copies of Blackstones Commentaries had been sold in America as in England. Thomas Jefferson observed that Blackstones Commentaries were the most lucid in arrangement which had yet been written, correct in its matter, classical in its style, and rightfully taking its place by the side of the Justinian institutes.

Complete with 14 detailed and beautifully executed folding black and white plates drawn by the Dutch artist J J Bylaert, and decorative head and tailpieces. With title page with engraving of an owl, dedication, preface, text and corrigenda (244 pp), and folding plates. The binding is of worn but sound marbled boards with red label to spine (possibly contemporary or slightly later and possibly German/Dutch). All page edges red. Internally there is a little ink inscription to the bottom of the fep and occasional pencil annotation. The first plate has some creasing to the outer margin. There is a slight ink mark at the page edge of p219 which affects the edges of pages through to the first plate. Otherwise, apart from the very occasional spot, the contents are in remarkably good and clean condition.

[Stamp Act]:
London. 1766.. [2],243-244pp. Folio. Dbd. Negligible foxing. Fine. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. The official British folio printing of the Parliamentary Act repealing the notorious Stamp Act, passed at the session just after the Stamp Act was passed, due to the outrage it caused in the colonies. After its successful effort in the French and Indian War, the British government was saddled with a massive debt. Added to this was the cost of administering its new lands in Canada, and the necessity of protecting colonists on the American frontier from Indian attacks. In order to raise funds for border defenses, the British Parliament decided to levy a tax directly on the colonists, rather than relying on colonial legislatures to raise the funds themselves (the colonies having a notoriously spotty track record in such efforts). Over the protests of colonial agents in London, including Benjamin Franklin from Pennsylvania and Jared Ingersoll of Connecticut, a tax was levied on all legal and commercial papers, pamphlets, newspapers, almanacs, cards, and dice. A Stamp Office was created in Britain, and Stamp Inspectors were to be assigned to each colonial district. Colonists wishing to purchase or use any of the materials covered in the Act would be required to buy a stamp. The outrage in the colonies at this form of taxation was immediate and overwhelming, and the Stamp Act was repealed in 1766. The bitterness engendered by the Act lingered on in its wake, however. An important piece of colonial American history. Only three copies recorded by ESTC, at the Lincoln's I … [Click Below for Full Description]

[GOLDSMITH, Oliver.]
Salisbury: R. Collins for F. Newbery,, 1766. Supposed to be written by Himself. 2 volumes, octavo (165 × 97 mm). Contemporary calf, 5 raised bands, volume numbers to spines, and double-line rules to boards gilt, red speckled edges. Housed in a brown cloth solander case. Abrasion to upper board of volume I, two gatherings in each volume unevenly bound, a little toning to title pages but generally fresh. An excellent set. First edition of Goldsmith's sentimental masterpiece. A number of variants of the first edition exist, with no precedence among them; this copy without the catchword on page 213 of volume I, the incorrect catchword "was" on page 39 of volume II, and the correct numbering of page 159 in volume II. Though destined to become one of the most popular novels of the 18th century, The Vicar of Wakefield had an ignominious beginning, with Samuel Johnson reporting that, "I received one morning a message from poor Goldsmith that he was in great distress…begging that I would come to him as soon as possible. I sent him a guinea, and promised to come to him directly. I accordingly went as soon as I was dressed, and found that his landlady had arrested him for his rent, at which he was in a violent passion. I perceived that he had already changed my guinea, and had got a bottle of Madeira and a glass before him. I put the cork into the bottle, desired he would be calm, and began to talk to him of the means by which he might be extricated. He then told me that he had a novel ready for the press, which he produced to me. I looked into it and saw its merit; told the … [Click Below for Full Description]
