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.

[5] ff., 128 pp. Huastec is the northernmost dialect of the Maya language. In the 17th and 18th centuries it was spoken in Puebla, Veracruz, and San Luis Potosí. Works of any category in this language are rarely found, this being => the first surviving published grammar and the first dictionary. The catechism is bilingual (Spanish and Huastec) as is the doctrine. Both are important for the study of moral and doctrinal concerns by the clergy among the indigenous population.Tapia Zenteno was not only an important Mexican linguist and professor of Mexican languages at the Royal and Pontifical University, but was also a comisario for the Inquisition. This work of his is dedicated to Archbishop Francisco Antonio Lorenzana, a man deeply interested in the indigenous culture and the conquest of it, and the man who produced Cortés's letters in a fine and wonderfully illustrated edition in Mexico in 1770. He also paid for the publication of this work, and his coat of arms appears at the top of the Dedication in an engraving by Manuel Villavicencio, one of Mexico's finest engravers.The volume is handsomely printed, with a nicely composed typographic border to its title-page, an elegant headpiece and a scenic initial "E" on its p. 1, and a modest but charming typographic "surround" for its final leaf's "O MARIA."Provenance: Marca de fuego on upper edges of closed book, most likely of the Franciscan Convento de Santa María Magdalena de San Martín Texmelucan, Puebla; early 19th-century pressure-stamp of a private Spanish-language collector on title-page; faint 19th-century case and shelf rubber-stamp in English on front free endpaper.

        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.

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.

The rare slave code for French colonial possessions in America, including San Domingo, Louisiana, and other French colonies in America. "An important compendium of the original code and over two dozen supplementary edicts, ordonnances, and lettres patentes amending or revising...laws concerning slavery in the French possessions in America from the year 1685 to 1741" - NUC (the 1742 edition). The Code established a number of personal and civil regulations - slave owners have the obligation to give their slaves Sundays and holidays off; owners are forbidden to marry their slaves and, if they produce children with slaves, these children will remain slaves; if the slaves they have children with belong to them, the children will be taken away as punishment; children of slaves adopt the status of their mothers and become the slaves of their mother&#39;s master. Slaves are not allowed to carry any kind of weapon, nor to assemble by day or night; they are forbidden to sell on the market or to hawk goods from door to door, without their master&#39;s permission; the master is responsible for the salves&#39; food and clothing, and for their care in case of illness; slaves have no legal or civil standing, nor can they fill any public office or be accepted as witnesses; slaves who hit their masters will be put to death; theft is punished with penalties ranging from corporal punishment to death, and the master is held responsible for the thieving on the part of his slave; slaves who run away shall have their ears cut off, and their legs if they should run a second time; masters are not allowed to torture slaves, though if they feel they need punishment, they are allowed to tie them and beat them with whips or ropes. The first slave regulations issued by the French were framed under Louis XIV in 1685, but it was not until 1740 that a full compendium was published. This was issued again in 1742, 1743, 1752 and 1767. The present edition adds the text of laws passed since the 1752 edition. The small format was evidently designed to be carried conveniently in a pocket. HOWES C530, "b." SABIN 14125.
