        THE ART OF DYING WOOL AND WOOLLEN STUFFS...TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH BY ORDER OF THE DUBLIN SOCIETY, AND PUBLISHED AT THEIR EXPENCE, FOR THE USE OF DYERS OF IRELAND

      Dublin: Printed by S. Powell, Printer to the Society, [date in imprint clipped away, but 1767].. Dublin: Printed by S. Powell, Printer to the Society, [date in imprint clipped away, but 1767].. vi,[7]-290pp. 12mo. Recent half calf and marbled boards, gilt label. Formerly a quite ragged copy, now professionally restored to sound, functional condition, as detailed below. First edition in English of Hellot's ART DE LA TEINTURE DES LAINES..., originally published in Paris in 1750, and for the rest of the century, one of the standard works on the subject. The importance of having a translation of this text available in Ireland at the time is self-evident, and in fact, this Irish printing precedes the first London printing by twenty-two years, where it appeared conjoined with two other topically- related works in 1789, and an English language edition bearing a Paris 1785 imprint by eighteen years. This edition is of considerable rarity: ESTC online locates only two copies, one at the National Library of Ireland, and the second at the Royal Irish Academy. And, according to the ESTC entry as of 2009, the latter copy is quite imperfect, lacking all leaves after p.96. OCLC does not report those copies, but includes a microfilm reprint, as well as somewhat incomplete references to copies at National Art Library Victoria & Albert Museum (AVA) and National Art Library (VAU). The text consists of a detailed guide to the mechanics of dyeing, as well as a fascinating formulary for the production of specific colors and types of dyes from materials, both organic and inorganic, local as well as imported. By its very nature, it is a work which would have been employed by hands involved in the work, and inevitably subject to considerable wear and tear. Such was the case with this copy, which bears the faint stamp of a defunct mercantile library, and exhibits the following cosmetic flaws: a) lower margin of title clipped away, costing imprint date, and that area, as well as the blank corners of the first three leaves, have been carefully replaced with archival rice paper; b) there are occasional small spots and discolorations scattered in the text block; c) D6, F4, and F6 have old tears, the first and last mended at an early date, the last costing some words at the outer margin, and the second recently mended; d) a few fore margins have suffered relatively shallow losses not approaching the text; and f) the last ten leaves were formerly quite creased and ragged, but have now been rendered flat, with archival rice paper restoration to corners of the first few leaves in the sequence, but with substantial marginal restorations to the last three leaves, costing the page numbers on two of those leaves, and part of the headline on the other. While obviously far from a perfect copy, this is now a quite useable copy, in far better state than one of the two copies of record. And in terms of the context of publication and intent, it is certainly the most interesting of the 18th century editions (including the Paris original). It is not in Bradshaw or Black. ESTC T186441. HIGGS 4036.

        "Lexiphanes, a dialogue imitated from Lucian, and suited to the present times. Being an attempt to restore the English tongue to its ancient purity, and to correct, as well as expose the affected style, hard words, and absurd phraseology of our English Lexiphanes, The Rambler"

      London: printed for J. Knox, 1767 London: printed for J. Knox. 1767. "First edition,12mo, pp. xxxix, [1], 180; later full polished tan calf by Ramage, red and black morocco labels on gilt-decorated spine, yellow edges; upper joint cracked, extremities rubbed; a good copy, or better. A popular attack on the diction of Samuel Johnson which went through several editions. Campbell was a classical scholar turned ship's purser who found himself at sea with no English book to read save Johnson's The Rambler. Said Boswell in his Life of Johnson: ""This year was published a ridicule of his style, under the title of Lexiphanes ... Its author was one Campbell, a Scotch purser in the navy. The ridicule consisted of applying Johnson's 'words of large meaning' to insignificant matters, as if one should put the armor of Goliath upon a dwarf. The contrast might be laughable; but the dignity of the armor must remain the same in all considerate minds. This malicious drollery, therefore, it may easily be supposed, could do no harm to its illustrious object."" Courtney, p. 27; Tinker 1395."

Plein maroquin rouge de l'époque, double filet doré encadrant les plats, dos à nerfs orné, inscription "Belisaire" frappée en lettres dorées au centre du plat supérieur, tranches dorées partiellement décorées d'un motif ciselé (Reliure de l'époque, taches diverses et traces d'usure). Première édition illustrée du principal ouvrage de l'écrivain d'origine limousine Jean-François Marmontel (Bort 1723 - 1799). Ce roman politique et moral eut un grand retentissement grâce aux points de vue qu'il apportait sur les problèmes soulevés par le Siècle des Lumières, et notamment celui de la tolérance religieuse. Le chapitre XV est, pour cette raison, resté célèbre. Il fut même traduit en russe par l'impératrice Catherine II interessée par ses idées novatrices (cf. Laffont-Bompiani). L'illustration se compose d'un frontispice et de 3 planches hors-texte dessinés par Gravelot. Exemplaire relié à l'époque en maroquin rouge, avec le titre inscrit en lettres dorées sur le plat supérieur. Sur une page de garde signature ancienne: Théodore de Golasianoff.

        Musicalisches Halleluja, oder Schone und geistreiche Gesange, mit neuen und anmuthigen Melodeyen begleitet... Achte und privilegirte Auflag.

      Zurich Burgklischer Truckerey 1767. Thick octavo. Full 18th century dark brown calf. [viii], 880, [viii] pp. With a fine frontispiece engraving depicting a female figure playing the organ with another seated beside her singing from an open book of music, her words rising to the Heavens. Binding worn; spine defective; some ownership markings and remnants of early labels to pastedowns. Slightly soiled and worn; some mispagination. A very good copy overall.. Bachofen was a Swiss composer and music pedagogue. His "significance in the history of Swiss music lies primarily in the exceptional popularity of some of his works. His music was criticized, even by his contemporaries, for deficiencies of construction, harmonic language and melodic development; but his most important collection of sacred songs, Musicalisches Hallelujah, appeared in no less than 11 editions between 1727 and 1803, and became one of the favourite songbooks for popular music- making in the home... As the preface... makes clear, Bachofen's works were specifically intended for domestic use. He broke away from the tradition of four-part writing (in the manner of Goudimel's psalms), and most of his settings are in three voices. The continuo part, presumably to be played on the home organ, also constitutes the vocal bass, and there are two soprano parts which frequently cross. Solo songs with organ are inserted to fill gaps on the printed pages resulting from publication in separate parts, with each three-part song beginning a new page." Peter Ross in Grove online

        A Practical Treatise on Wounds and other Chirurgical Subjects; to which is prefixed a short historical account of the rise and progress of surgery and anatomy, addressed to young surgeons. [Volume 2: Cases and Practical Remarks in Surgery, with sketches of machines, simple in their construction, easy in their application, and of approved use. The second edition, with large additions and emendations. Vol. II.]

      First edition of the first volume, second edition of the second volume, as published. "The surgical treatise which would eventually bring him recognition as one of the outstanding provincial surgeons of eighteenth-century Britain" (ODNB). Benjamin Gooch earned a place in surgical history as the innovator of Gooch's splint. He was an ingenious designer of surgical apparatus and appliances, and his mechanical genius has been compared to that of Hugh Owen Thomas. He designed appliances for the treatment of head injuries, prolapse of the rectum, and other conditions, but his most famous was the splint for the treatment of fractures, described in this book. Gooch's splint remained in use until the 1920s, when plaster-of-paris bandages, first introduced in 1852, finally took its place. Much of the second volume is on surgical devices of his own design, and a large part of the first volume and the first cases of the second volume are on wounds of the head. The Cases and Practical Remarks had been published in 1758 with only 184 pages and 12 plates. Gooch greatly enlarged it and published it as volume 2 of the present work. He also published Medical and Chirurgical Observations in London in 1773, and a collected edition appeared in 1792 after his death. See A. Batty Shaw, "Benjamin Gooch, Eighteenth Century Norfolk Surgeon" in Medical History, 16 (1972), pp. 40-50); also the article in ODNB.2 volumes, 8vo, pp. x, xviii, 19-459; xxvi, 422, (2) blank, and 17 engraved plates (11 folding). Both title-pages are engraved, each with a large pictorial vignette. Two or three wormholes in extreme lower corner of most of volume 2 twice becoming a wormtrack in a dozen leaves, a few minor marks, but a nice set. Contemporary calf, red morocco labels on spine, small repair to head of spine of vol. 2.

        An Essay on Crimes and Punishments, Translated from the Italian

      , 1767. 1767. First English-Language Edition of PMM 209, "One of the Most Influential Books in the Whole History of Criminology" Beccaria, [Cesare Bonesana, Marchese de] [1738-1794]. Voltaire (Arouet, Francois-Marie) [1694-1778]. An Essay on Crimes and Punishments, Translated from the Italian; With a Commentary, Attributed to Mons. De Voltaire, Translated from the French. London: Printed for J. Almon, 1767. xii, 179, [1], lxxix, [1] pp. Last page blank. Octavo (8" x 5"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Moderate toning to text, somewhat darker along margins, occasional light foxing. Small early owner signatures to front endleaf and head of title page, interior otherwise clean. * First edition in English. First published in Livorno in 1764 as Dei Delitti e Delle Pene, this landmark work is, to quote Printing and the Mind of Man, "one of the most influential books in the whole history of criminology. It is significant because it was the first systematic study of the subject. Infused with the spirit of the Enlightenment, its advocacy of crime prevention and the abolition of torture and capital punishment marked a significant advance in criminological thought, which had changed little since the Middle Ages. It had a profound influence on the development of criminal law. It was especially influential among American thinkers, such as Thomas Jefferson, who wished to use Beccaria to reform the system of criminal law Americans inherited from England.
