        Hamburgische Dramaturgie. (Erstes Stück - Hundert und erstes, zweytes, drittes und viertes Stück =) 2 in 1 Bd.

      Hamburg, in Commission bey J. H. Cramer, in Bremen, (1. 5. 1767 - 19. 4. 1768 bzw. Ostern 1769).. Titel mit gestochener Vignette (J. W. Meil inve: et fe: 1768), 4 Bl. "Ankündigung", 415 S., 1 S. "Druckfehler" und "Nachricht" ; Titel mit gestochener Vignette (J. W. Meil inve: et fe.), 410 S., am Ende "Gedruckt mit Clermondtischen Schriften". HLdrbd der Zeit mit schlichter Rückenvergoldung, goldgeprägtem Rückenschild und marmorierten Deckelbezügen (Rücken nach dem weitgehend zerstörten Original erneuert mit Verwendung des alten Rückenschildes, Ex Libris auf dem Innendeckel, handschriftlicher Besitzvermerk auf dem Vorsatz und erstem Titel, 1 Ecke des fliegenden Vorsatzes ergänzt, Vorsätze leimschattig, durchgehend etwas, nur gelegentlich auch stärker braunfleckig bzw. gebräunt, Oberkante mit kleinen Feuchtigkeitsrändern, wenige, schwache Anstreichungen, sonst kaum Gebrauchsspuren).. Seltene erste Ausgabe, bei der nur die "Ankündigung" im 2. Druck vorliegt, während die Stück 1 bis 31 die Kennzeichen des ersten Druckes aufweisen (s. Munker S. 409 f.). Die übrigen Stücke sind alle in nur einem Druck erschienen!- Lessings "Hamburgische Dramaturgie" sollte "ein kritisches Register von allen aufzuführenden Stücken (am "Hamburgischen Nationaltheater") halten, und jeden Schritt begleiten, den die Kunst, sowohl des Dichters, als des Schauspielers, hier tun wird" (Lessing in der "Ankündigung"). Entstanden ist die bedeutendste und wichtigste Sammlung von Dramen- und Theaterkritiken, begleitet von grundsätzlichen Überlegungen zur Dramen- und Literaturtheorie, die der "Entwicklung des deutschen Theaters entscheidende Impulse" gegeben haben, die "die Literaturkritik auf eine neue Basis (gestellt) und ... die dramentheoretischen Reflexionen bis zum Naturalismus und zu Brecht" bestimmt haben. "Die 52 Theaterstücke, die der Autor kritisch sichtet, lassen ziemlich genau Niveau und Zusammensetzung des Repertoires im 'Nationaltheater' erkennen: 34 französischen stehen nur 18 deutsche 'Originale' gegenüber" (KNLL). Im Laufe der Zeit weitet sich die "Hamburgische Dramaturgie" "zu einer entschiedenen und umfassenden Kampfschrift gegen den seit mehr als hundert Jahren unbestrittenen Führungsanspruch der französischen Bühnenautoren aus" (KNLL) und kritisiert vor allem den französischen Klassizismus. Dafür wirkt Lessings Bewunderung für Shakespeare inspirierend auf die jungen Dramatiker des "Sturm und Drang". Die "Hamburgische Dramaturgie" erschien zunächst auf Subskription und regelmäßig zwei Stücke die Woche, als aber bei "Dodsley & Comp." (E. B. Schwickert) in Leipzig und später in Hamburg Nachdrucke erschienen, versuchte Lessing gegenzusteuern, indem er die "Stücke" unregelmäßig oder als Bände zusammengefaßt später ausgab, obwohl er die korrekten Erscheinungsdaten beibehielt. So wurden die letzten Stücke 83 bis 104 (mit fingierten Daten) und die beiden Titelblätter erst Ostern 1769 ausgeliefert. Erst da war das gesamte großartige Unternehmen abgeschlossen. Nur von den Stücken 1 - 31, die die größtre Resonenz erhalten haben, sind in der Druckerei von Lessing & Bode, "welche die 'Dramaturgie' herstellte" (Muncker), ein zweiter (textkritisch allerdings bedeutungslosen) Druck veranstaltet worden. In dem letzten "Stück" 101 - 104 setzt sich Lessing noch einmal mit Dodsley & Comp. auseinander, die voreilig angekündigt hatten, die "Dramaturgie" werde 104 "Srücke" umfassen, während Lessing nur 100 eingeplant hatte. Um aber nicht als Lügner dazustehen, ließ Lessing eben jene Stücke 101 - 104 als "Nachspiel" ausgeben. Darin nimmt er Gelegenheit, "mit der ganzen Wucht der sittlichen Entrüstung, die ihn erfüllt, auf das Elende und Verwerfliche jenes Nachdruckwesens hinzuweisen, und die Gelehrten wie alle billig Denkenden auffordert, gegen diesen Diebstahl am geistigen Eigenthume einzuschreiten" (Schröter/Thiele).- Goed. IV/1,404,103; Muncker 408 u. 416; Seifert 662; Dorn (Meil) 232 - 233.- Mit dem Wappen-Exlibris von "Victor von Klemperer" und handschrifdtlichem Besitzvermerk "J Wander" (?).

      1767. Berlin 1767. Folio (373 x 243mm). Decorative watercolor title, manuscript text within a garland of flowers and insects, and 86 watercolors of plants, manuscript index leaf at end. Preserved in a modern half cloth clamshell box. A beautiful original manuscript of foreign, mostly exotic, useful and medicinal plants. The fine watercolors are heightened with gouache and are numbered 1-53a, 53b-85, and inscribed with their Latin names. At the lower margin the Linnaean nomenclature is given with reference to his 'Genera Plantarum'. The index leaf lists a plate 86 Euphorbia which is not present in the collection. The manuscript portrays many spices and pharmaceutical plants such as: Jamaican pepper, cashew, cacao, camphor tree, caper, cardamom, cloves, quinine bark, China root, Arabian coffee, bitter cucumber, Indian saffron, date palm, Indian fig (the tree is considered sacred in India as it often shelters a little temple underneath), dwarf gensing, tree-of-life, indigo, nutmeg, opium, Indian pepper, black pepper, St. John's bread, Indian date, vanilla plant, poison nut, many originating from India. Andreas Friedrich Happe (1733-1802) was a well-known artist, engraver, naturalist as well as pharmacist. He was born in Aschersleben and died in Berlin in 1802. He published a number of books on pharmaceutical botany of which the most important is his 'Botanica pharmaceutica ' Berlin 1785 (-1806). He was also the artist for the plates of the first two volumes of Martini & Chemnitz 'Neues systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet'. However he is better known for his botanical artwork. The Oak Spring Garden Library has a four volume 'Herbarium pictum', an impressive collection of 403 watercolors. The Hunt Botanical Library possesses a manuscript by him 'Flora Happiana', with 471 watercolors. We sold a manuscript of Happe in 1997 'Insecten-Belustigung. Worinnen eine Sammlung sowohl Ausländischer als Einheimischer Tag-Vögel, Abend- und Nacht-Vögel enthalten nach dem Leben gezeichnet von Andr. Frid. Happe. Berlin 1769-1784', with a fine frontispiece (title within a garland of flowers), and 133 original watercolors. In 2008 a large collection of original watercolors by Happe 'Conspectus Praecipuarum Plantarum ' Berlin 1790-1794, with 1146 original watercolors was offered by the Parisian bookseller Thomas-Scheler. The Latin captions have some ink bleeding. Three plates with marginal repair. A unique and interesting collection. An Oak Spring Herbaria 39; Hunt 659..

        TRUTHUHN / TURKEY : Pallo Pavone, o Pollo d'India nero con macchie bianche. Gallo-Pavo Niger

      1767-76. Kolorierte Umrissradierung, Platte: 27,5 x 34,5 cm / Coloured etching, plate: 27,5 x 34,5 cm. Sehr dekorative, altkolorierte Radierung, gewidmet an Orlando Malavolti, aus "Storia naturale degli uccelli" von Saverio Manetti (1723-1784), gedruckt bei Giuseppe Vanni in Florenz, zeigt das Truthuhn. Für die Darstellungen dieses Werkes, das zwischen 1767-1776 in fünf massiven Folio Bänden erschienen ist, wurden die Vögel aus der Sammlung von Giovanni Gerini verwendet. Manetti, Mediziner und Naturwissenschaftler, war Mitglied von Royal Society und der Präsident von Societa botanya und von Giardino botanyo di Firenze. Gering gebräunt, sonst gut erhalten. Verso Stempel. This beautiful print of a turkey, dedicated to Orlando Malavolti, was published in "Storia naturale degli uccelli" by Saverio Manetti (1723-1784), Lorenzo Lorenzi and Violante Vanni (1732-1776), printed by Giuseppe Vanni Begun in 1767 in Florence. Begun in 1767 this massive work in five folio volumes, with images based on the extensive collection of Marquis Giovanni Gerini, was completed ten years later. Manetti, medical doctor and natural scientist, was a member of Royal Society and a president of Societa botanya and of Giardino botanyo di Firenze. This work on birds was 'larger, better engraved and more vividly coloured than any previous book on birds', notable for its lively posturing of the specimens which seem to reflect 'the habits and mannerisms of contemporary Italian society' (Dance, 70). Paper slightly age-toned, stamp on the back, otherwise in a good condition.

        An Essay on Crimes and Punishments, Translated from the Italian...

      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 three-quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed, contemporary armorial bookplate ("Parker of Park Hall Esq.") on front pastedown retained. Light toning to text, faint dampspotting to a few leaves, some offsetting to margins of preliminaries and final few leaves. An attractive copy. * 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 saw Beccaria as a source of enlightened ideas to reform English common law. Printing and the Mind of Man 209.

        An essay on Crimes and Punishments.Translated from the Italian, with a Commentary attributed to Mons. De Voltaire, Translated from the French.

      Dublin, John Exshaw, 1767. 8vo. In a contemporary full calf binding with five raised bands and gilt red leather title-label to spine. Author's name written in contemporary hand to title-page. Light wear to extremities, otherwise a fine copy. XIV, 133, (1), LX pp.. First translation, published in the same year as the first edition of the translation (London), of Beccaria's magnum opus, perhaps the most important and influential work in the entire history of criminology, which singlehandedly transformed the Western world's penal system (from a cruel, arbitrary and essentially Medieval system to the equalitarian and humane approach of the Enlightenment). Beccaria argued that the gravity of the crime should be measured by its injury to society and that the penalties should relate to this. The English edition is translated by Voltaire from the French edition, which was translated from the original Italian (Dei delitti e delle pene); The English translation contains for the first time Voltaire's commentary, which shortly after was translated into Italian and published by Coltellini in the 1769 Livorno-edition (Indicated falsely as published in Lausanne)."The success of Beccaria's book was immediate, six editions being published within eighteen months, and it was eventually translated into twenty-two languages. Its principles have been incorporated into the criminal practice of all civilized countries. [...] These ideas have now become so commonplace that it is difficult to appreciate their revolutionary impact at the time." (PMM 209).The present English translation exercised direct influence upon the creation of the American constitution: "[The present edition], was widely circulated in the colonies. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and George Washington all read it. Beccaria's essay told them that criminals were not wicked by nature and that they, like everyone else, possessed free will. Criminals, the essay said, were free to obey the law or not, as they chose." (Fridell, Capital Punishment, p. 88). Jefferson and many other early republican lawmakers endorsed the proportionality advocated by Beccaria. South Carolina's constitution states that "the penal laws, as heretofore used, shall be reformed, and punishments made in some cases less sanguinary, and in general more proportionate to the crime" which was a consequence of Beccaria's doctrines. In "Commonplace Book," Thomas Jefferson copied a passage from Beccaria related to the issue of gun control: "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms [...] disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes [...] Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."Beccaria was not only revolutionary in his abandonment of torture, he also argued - against the Catholic Church - not to make a crime of suicide: "Suicide is a crime which seems not to admit of punishment, properly speaking; for it cannot be inflicted but on the innocent, or upon an insensible dead body. In the first case, it is unjust and tyrannical, for political liberty supposes all punishments entirely personal". Futhermore he "opposed capital punishment, which should be replaced by life imprisonment; crimes against property should be in the first place punished by fines, political crimes by banishment; and the conditions in prisons should be radically improved." (PMM 209).Beccaria also did extensive research within economics and is often mentioned as the Italian Adam Smith. The present work has, however, completely overshadowed his other research fields and today he is known as the father of criminology and as being the person who took the Western penal system into the modern era

        Konten min&#146;yo seiu Benran [trans.: Practical Introduction to Meteorology].

      - Numerous woodcuts in the text (two with moveable volvelles). 26 folded leaves; 30 folded leaves, two folded leaves of ads for books published by Nakanishi. Two vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers (a little rubbed, unimportant marginal worming in Vol. II), orig. block printed title label on each upper cover, new stitching. Kyoto: Nakanishi, 1767. First edition, Kyoto issue (the book was also issued in Osaka in the same year) of this rare work on meteorology, astronomy, and astrology for laymen; it is the earliest attempt to present a scientific account of the meteorology of Japan based on local observations (and therefore, not entirely based on Chinese meteorological theories). The book is also especially notable for being one of the earliest Japanese books to contain volvelles. The first section of the book is astronomical and geographical; there are depictions of an armillary sphere, comets in the sky, constellations, and numerous diagrammatic maps. The second part is devoted to meteorology in which the author explains how weather changes, describes the extremities of weather conditions including rain storms, heavy snow, strong winds, thunder, lightning, etc. Nakanishi also explains how to predict the weather. There is much about the phenomenon of twinkling stars and their meaning regarding earthquakes, heavy winds, and as a portent for epidemics. The author states that haloes, rainbows, and severe weather can predict terrestrial events such as political instability, earthquakes, plagues, famine, etc. One of the most interesting features of the book is how the author explains the relationship between landscape and weather. There are numerous maps of regions of Japan &#151; especially Kyoto, Tokyo, and Osaka &#151; where Nakanishi describes in great detail the local weather patterns and how they have formed the landscape of the area. Nakanishi (fl. 1754-72), a resident of Kyoto, was a disciple of the Seki school of mathematics and the author of many books. He was an astronomer, mathematician, and calendar maker; he was also active as a publisher of science and medical books as well as literature. Very nice set and rare. Preserved in a box. ? The Waseda University copy is also the Kyoto issue (no priority). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [MANUSCRIPT MAP OF PENOBSCOT BAY, ENTITLED The Several Courses up Penobscott River from Pequoit or the Rivers Mouth taken by Skillful Hands..., ACCOMPANIED BY THREE MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE LANDS DEPICTED ON THE MAP]

      Newport, R.I. 1767.. Manuscript map in ink and wash, on a single folio sheet, 15 1/4 x 19 inches. Docketed in manuscript on verso, "Map of Leveretts Patent alias Muscongus." With two manuscript documents, one being [3]pp. on folio sheets, dated at Boston May 19, 1787; the other being [3]pp. on folio sheets, dated at Providence, R.I. on May 30, 1787. Also, with a half-page of manuscript dated Boston, March 28, 1768. All three documents relating to the lands depicted on the map. Map with small separations along horizontal fold, and at center cross-fold. Minor edgewear. Near fine. The half- page document being only the beginning portion of a longer letter, otherwise the manuscripts in near fine condition. Archivally matted. An attractive 18th-century manuscript map of Penobscot Bay, Maine, heavily annotated by William Ellery, a signer of the Declaration of Independence from Rhode Island, who made claims to some of the lands depicted on the map. The map was drawn by British Rear-Admiral Jahleel Brenton, who commanded the HMS Queen during the Revolution, and whose family lost much of its property as a result of the Revolution. The map is skillfully rendered, as would be expected of a British naval officer, and is done on a scale of about three miles to the inch. It is done in ink, with coastlines accentuated in wash. The map depicts the coastline from the Damariscotta River in the southwest to the Penobscot River in the northeast, and shows and names the many islands of the Bay, as well as many inlets, harbors, rivers, ponds, etc. The location of a fort and settlements have also been added. This information was all added by William Ellery (1727- 1820), a signer of the Declaration of Independence from Rhode Island. Ellery explains in a manuscript note in the lower right corner of the map (dated at Newport, Rhode Island in 1767): "This map of Leverett&#39;s Patent &c was copied from a copy, by Jahleel Brenton Esq., one of the Proprietors; and presented by his son Samuel Brenton to William Ellery who wrote the References, Names of Places, &c. William Ellery." In the upper left corner of the sheet Ellery has added a long manuscript note explaining the survey and the boundaries of Leverett&#39;s Patent, as dpeicted on the map. This map and the accompanying manuscript documents were found among William Ellery&#39;s papers, and were part of Ellery and his brother Benjamin&#39;s attempts to claim lands in Maine that they believed belonged to their family. "Leverett&#39;s Patent," also known as the Muscongus Patent, was issued in 1629 to Thomas Leverett and John Beauchamp. It granted land and trading rights for a thirty-six square mile area along the Penobscot Bay in present-day Maine, between the Muscongus River and Penobscot River. According to the documents present here, Leverett inherited the full patent upon Beauchamp&#39;s death, and at his own death divided the grant among his ten children, who then divided the land again amongst the next generation. Around 1720 Gen. Samuel Waldo of Boston acquired a large portion of the patent, and began recruiting immigrants from Germany to settle the area. The letter fragment present here (dated March 28, 1768 and addressed to Benjamin and William Ellery) asserts that the Ellerys have an "undoubted right to a half share" of the Muscongus lands, as a result of a purchase made by their grandfather. The unidentified author of the letter goes on to describe the Waldo heirs as "exceeding difficult to deal with." Also present are two manuscripts, one being a 1787 copy of the original 1629 grant of the Muscongus Patent from the Council of Plymouth, the other being a manuscript deed of sale signed by James Green for a portion of the original patent. A handsome colonial era manuscript map of the coast of Maine, drawn by a British Rear-Admiral and used by a signer of the Declaration of Independence to defend his family&#39;s claims to the land. Significant manuscript maps of this early date are virtually unknown in the market.

        CARTAS DEL EXCELENTÍSIMO SEÑOR VIRREY AL SEÑOR TAGLE SOBRE VARIOS ASUNTOS DE LAS COMISIONES DE POTOSÍ...[manuscript title]

      Lima. 1767-1770.. 54 folio leaves. Light soiling to a few leaves. Slight worming, heavier in parts, sometimes affecting portions of text. Generally quite clean and in a clear hand. About very good. Correspondence of Viceroy Manuel de Amat y Junient with Pedro de Tagle y Sánchez, who was commissioned to organize the silver production of Potosí. This item is comprised of fifty-two letters in secretarial hand, signed by Amat and dated in Lima, November 14, 1767 to August 14, 1770. The correspondence covers a wide variety of administrative matters: criminal cases, accounting, shipping, collections, quicksilver, silver production, drainage of mines, taxation, overland shipments to Buenos Aires, appointments, and mails. These are, effectively, one side of a conversation in that the correspondence from Tagle to Amat referred to by the latter is not present. The collection demonstrates the intensity of the administration of Amat in all affairs of his viceroyalty. The great mountain of silver, Potosí, was known during the conquest of Peru, but until the introduction of the amalgamation process in the mid-16th century it was largely underexploited. With the added discovery of quicksilver at Huancavelica in 1545, the essential element for extraction of silver was readily available - even in quantities to permit its export for use in the silver mines of New Spain. Between 1550 and 1560 the mines became the most important in the world for silver production, and in 1572 a mint was established in Potosí. Bars of silver were shipped to Spain via Callao and Panamá, attracting numerous pirates to the sea lanes along the Pacific Coast and the trade-fair city of Portobelo in Panamá. Initiated by Francis Drake in 1578 and continued by Thomas Cavendish in 1587, the silver galleons became prime targets for English, Dutch, and French raiders until trans-Andean overland shipping routes through Tucumán to Buenos Aires were established in the late 17th century. Manuel de Amat y Junient (1704-82), knight of the Order of San Juan de Jerusalén serving on Malta (1721), served with distinction in Africa in 1736 and in Italy, and was appointed Captain General of Chile and president of the Royal Appeals Court in 1755. In 1761 he was promoted to the viceroyalty of Peru, and in 1767 he oversaw the expulsion of the Society of Jesus and occupation of their properties. In 1768 he was responsible for the construction of the Lima bullring, in 1770 for establishment of the San Carlos boarding school in the former Jesuit novitiate, the parkway and avenue of the Alameda in 1772, and the improved fortification of the Real Felipe in 1774. He was famed for his relationship with his mistress, singer and actress Micaela Villegas, "La Perricholi." Prior to his return to Spain in 1776 he ordered the paving and illumination of streets in Lima. Pedro de Tagle y Sánchez (1722-96) studied in the Royal Collage of San Martín and University of San Marcos, receiving the title of doctor in laws and canons in 1741. He traveled to Spain where he was received in the Order of Calatrava in 1749 and elected judge of the Royal Appeals Court of Charcas, in Bolivia. He was commissioned to reorganize the silver bank in Potosí, and subsequently wrote the regulations for the Royal Mint of Potosí. He went to Lima in 1778 as criminal magistrate and was governor- intendant in Huancavelica from 1789 to 1790. He was retired with the honor of Councilor of the Indies. The file reflects the intense administrative activity of an important Enlightenment viceroy.

        Catalogue systématique et raisonné des Curiosités de la Nature et de l&#39;Art, qui composent le Cabinet de M. Davila

      Thirty engraved plates (many folding). xxxv, [1], 571 pp.; vi, 656 pp.; vi, 290 pp., 3 p.l., 286, [1] pp. Three vols. 8vo, cont. mottled calf (foot of spine of Vol. III with a bit of wear), triple gilt fillet round sides, spines gilt, a.e.g., red morocco lettering pieces on spines. Paris: Briasson, 1767. First edition, and a very handsome set, of this lavish and detailed catalogue. "In 1767 Romé was employed, on Sage&#39;s recommendation, to draw up a catalogue of the curiosities that had been collected by Pedro Francisco Davila, who wished to sell his cabinet of natural history before returning to Peru. The work ran to three volumes, in the second of which Romé, in agreement with Linnaeus, stressed the importance of crystalline form in mineralogical description."-D.S.B., XI, p. 520. During Romé&#39;s early years, he found steady employment by preparing at least fourteen other mineralogical catalogues. Davila&#39;s enormous collection contained scientific instruments (26 items), medals, prints, sculpture, illuminated MSS., Oriental MSS., and books (402 lots) as well as natural history objects. In the Preface to Vol. I, Davila writes that he hopes to sell the collection en bloc but, if no person comes forward, the collection will be sold at auction beginning 12 November. The second part of the third volume is devoted to the classical bronzes and medals (catalogued by Abbé Grimaud) and the prints and drawings (catalogued by M. Remy). The present set is priced throughout in a contemporary hand; it is the first time I have seen a set so annotated. The prices furnish invaluable information regarding the market of the period. Fine set and very scarce on the market. This is a presentation copy from Davila, inscribed on the first title: "Pour Monsieur Hulin de la part de son tres humble et tres obeissant serviteur Davila." &#10087; Laissus, "Les Cabinets d&#39;Histoire Naturelle" in Taton, ed., Enseignement et diffusion des sciences en France au dix-huitième siècle (1986), p. 668-"le cabinet compte alors parmi les plus riches de France: le catalogue de ce remarquable ensemble emplit trois gros in-8, le premier consacré aux règnes animal et végétal, le second aux minéraux et le troisième aux fossiles."

        Dernière lettre du chevalier D&#39;Eon à M. le Comte de Guerchy en datte du 5 Aout, 1767. Avec l&#39;extrait de la procedure en bonne forme

      London: Londres, 1767. 4to, 19p., 8.5x11 inches, unbound, stitched, untrimmed lightly soiled and worn pages, text in French, early notation in ink by a very neat hand concerning an earlier publication of a related book from 1765, also in French. OCLC lists one copy at the British Library though ESTC lists four. Publication of a letter by Charles-Geneviève-Louis-Auguste-André-Timothée d&#39;Éon de Beaumont, known as Chevalier d&#39;Eon, a French diplomat, spy, soldier and Freemason who lived the later years of his life as a woman. The matter of the letter is the charge by the Chevalier that Comte de Guerchy had attempted to assassinate the chevalier in an attempt to keep secret documents on spying in England from being released. This piece was written during d&#39;Eon&#39;s political exile.& The chevalier posed as a Lady on a secret mission to Russia in order to gain close access to the Empress and became her Maid of Honour. Claiming to have been born anatomically female but raised as a male, he demanded to be recognized as a woman and the Court complied but insisted that he dress as a woman. With the aid of the King&#39;s money he too complied, revising his wardrobe appropriately. After his death it was proven he was anatomically male.& Havelock Ellis coined the term Eonism to give name to similar cases of transgenderism.& Several literary works have been based on d&#39;Eon as well as a manga and animé series.& The Beaumont Society for transgendered people is named for him

        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, opposite Burlington-House, Piccadilly, 1767 First edition in English. . Contemporary calf, sides a little scuffed, rebacked, red morocco lettering piece. Octavo. A good, clean copy. "... One of the most influential books in the history of criminology ... Beccaria maintained that the gravity of the crime should be measured by its injury to society and that the penalties should be related to this. The prevention of crime he held to be of greater importance than its punishment, and the certainty of punishment of greater effect than its severity. He denounced the use of torture and secret judicial proceedings. He opposed capital punishment, which should be replaced by life imprisonment; crimes against property should be in the first place punished by fines, political crimes by banishment; and the conditions in prisons should be radically improved. Beccaria believed that the publication of criminal proceedings, verdicts and sentences, as well as furthering general education, would help to prevent crime. These ideas have now become so commonplace that it is difficult to appreciate their revolutionary impact at the time" "It was eventually translated into twenty-two languages. Its principles have been incorporated into the criminal practice of all civilized countries …The impact of Dei Delitti e delle Pene on the reform of criminal justice can hardly be exaggerated" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 209, describing the original Italian edition, Livorno, 1764).

        Dieu et les hommes, &#156;uvre théologique; mais raisonnable. Par le Docteur Obern. Traduit par Jacques Simon.

      Chez Christian de Vos, 1767 - A Berlin, Chez Christian de Vos, 1767. In 8 de VIII (table des chapitres, errata)-264pp., reliure en plein veau fauve marbré de l'époque, dos lisse orné de caissons et de fleurons dorés, pièce de maroquin brun encadrée d'un filet doré, titre doré, bâtonnets dorés en biais sur les coiffes, filet doré sur les coupes, une petite griffure sur la partie inférieure du plat supérieur, bruniture sur les marges de la première et dernière page de garde, gravure en bandeau et lettrine historiée en début de volume, quelques rares notes dans les marges, quelques rousseurs mais intérieur frais, tranches marbrées en vert, rouge et beige, bon et bel exemplaire. Nouvelle édition publiée l'année de l'originale. Cet ouvrage est considéré comme une des &#156;uvres majeures dans l'arsenal polémique antichrétien de son auteur, en même temps qu'un essai sérieux d'histoire des religions dans une perspective très critique. Pour Voltaire qui était profondément antichrétien et déiste en dehors de toute religion, le christianisme n&#146;est que superstition et fanatisme; cette religion devait absolument disparaitre. Voltaire (1694-1778), fut un écrivain et philosophe. Il fut une figure emblématique du siècle des lumières et le chef de file du parti philosophique, le plus important avec son adversaire Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Il parvint à obtenir une immense fortune dans des opérations spéculatives boursières, ainsi que des investissements dans des colonies ou en Afrique du nord. Il fut contraint à l&#146;exil, il se réfugia notamment à Londres, et vécut également en Suisse à Ferney près de Genève, en Prusse auprès de la cour de Frédéric II, à Stockholm auprès de la Reine Christine ainsi qu&#146;à Saint-Pétersbourg. Son &#156;uvre est immense, composée notamment de 21 000 lettres (celles retrouvées), et compte parmi ses ouvrages les plus connus: &#145;&#145;La Henriade&#146;&#146; (1728), &#145;&#145;L&#145;Histoire de Charles XI&#146;&#146; (1731), &#145;&#145;Zadig&#146;&#146; (1747), &#145;&#145;Micromégas&#146;&#146; (1752), &#145;&#145;Candide&#146;&#146; (1759), &#145;&#145;Lettre philosophique&#146;&#146; (1764), &#145;&#145;Traité sur la tolérance&#146;&#146; (1763), &#145;&#145;Dictionnaire philosophique&#146;&#146; (1764).

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments: newly translated out of original tongues: and with the former translations diligently repaired and revised.

      Mark Baskett . and by the assigns of Robert Baskett, London 1767 - Large paper copy (measuring nearly 5 centimeters larger than that cited in Darlow & Moule!), large 4to, 1 volume expanded to 2, unpaginated; sectional title-p. for the N.T.; contemporary full red goatskin, elaborate borders on covers incorporating a Greek key design enclosing lilies with birds and vases with flowers, an with a central monogram "M*B" on an oval green morocco onlay, surrounded by a black morocco onlay tooled with cherubs, the whole surrounded by a flame tool, smooth spines richly gilt and gilt-lettered direct, a.e.g.; minor overall rubbing but generally a very good, sound, and handsome, sumptuous binding. Facing the first leaf in each volume is the following inscription: This Book was presented to me by my Son in Law Coll. Stephen Delancy and at my decease I bequeath it to my beloved grand daughter Miss Phila Delancy as witness my hand, Maria Barclay. New York, 15 August, 1786." The Delancys were a prominent New York loyalist family. Stephen Delancy remained in New York throughout the Revolution but left for Nova Scotia in 1783; presumably he commissioned these bindings from England at some prior date (cf. his mother-in-law's initials on the central onlays). The binder has not been identified, but it is similar to the one executed a binding described in Maggs catalogue 966, item 154 (the onlay decoration being almost identical). Also included beneath the above inscription is a further one, dated 1834, from Phila Delancy to her nephew, William de Lancey Lawson. Darlow and Moule mention an engraved title-p. for those on regular paper, but no such mention in the Darlow & Moule citation for the L.P. copy, nor, for that matter, in any of the OCLC records.

        Reliques of Ancient English Poetry

      London,: J. Dodsley,, 1767.. Three volumes, octavo, engraved frontispiece and titles, two other textual engravings; an attractive set with contemporary ownership inscriptions, contemporary calf, spines banded and gilt, red morocco labels, two joints cracked and chipped at head of spines. Second edition, expanded, of this celebrated collection. Samuel Johnson is known to have encouraged Percy in his work, and even to have contributed material to the volumes.Percy's anthology invigorated interest in early English poetry, and was a benchmark of its kind, influencing any number of later poets including Wordsworth and Coleridge. Percy gathered most of the material in this work from the 'Percy Folio', now in the British Museum. Famously, Percy saved the manuscript when he found it 'being used by the Maids to light the Fire'. Its influence had an avowed impact on Coleridge and Wordsworth, amongst others.Lowndes, p. 1830.

        [PHAEDON AND LAVATER] SEVEN TRACTS OF THE LAVATER-MENDELSSOHN CONTROVERSY, 1770-1771. [BOUND WITH] PHAEDON; ODER, UBER DIE UNSTERBLICHKEIT DER SEELE IN DREY GESPRÄCHEN

      Berlin; Stettin, Bey F. Nicolai. 1767. Later full leather. 12mo. 14; 68; 16; 48; 112; 132; 64; [12], 309, [1]; pages. 17 cm. First edition (of Phaedon, and all tracts) . In German. With frontispiece portrait of the author. Moses Mendelssohn&#146;s chief philosophical work, "Phädon" (1767) ; on the immortality of the soul, which follows Plato&#39;s dialogue of the same name. &#147;The &#145;Phädon&#146; was the most widely read book of its time. Its special charm was its elegant and lucid style. Never before in Germany had philosophical questions been treated in such clear language; so that his contemporaries with justice called him the &#145;German Plato. &#146; The &#145;Phädon&#146; is one of the best productions of classic German prose; it was reprinted fifteen times and translated into nearly all the European languages, while a number of Hebrew versions were made. &#148; (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) . Bound with a collection of the major letters of the 1770 Lavater Controversy; each contains original title page (various publishers, 1770) ; starting with the &#147;Zueignungs-Schreiben des Herrn Lavaters in Zürich an Herrn Moses Mendelssohn in Berlin&#148;, Lavater&#146;s dedicatory epistle of his translation of Bonnet, publicly challenging Mendelssohn to refute the book publicly, which began the controversy; followed by &#147;Schreiben an den Herrn Diaconus Lavater zu Zürich&#148; (Mendelssohn&#146;s response) ; followed by &#147;Gedanken über die Zumuthung Lavaters an Moses Mendelssohn ein Christ zu warden&#148; (Lavater&#146;s reply) ; followed by &#147;Schreiben an den Herrn Moses Mendelssohn über die Lavaterische und Kölbelische Angelegenheiten gegen Herrn Mendelssohn&#148; (Kolbele&#146;s first attck) ; followed by &#147;Schreiben an den Herrn Diaconus Lavater zu Zu¨rich&#148; (Hesse&#146;s letter) ; followed by &#147;Zweytes Schreiben an Herrn Moses Mendelssohn insonderheit u¨ber den ehemahligen Mendelssohnischen Deismus&#148; (Kolbe&#146;s second attack, charging Mendelssohn as a deist) ; with, finally the 1771 &#147;Rede bey der Taufe zweyer Berlinischen Jsraeliten so durch Veranlassung der Lavater und Mendelsohinschen Streitschriften zum wahren Christenthum übergetreten. Samt einem kurzen Vorberichte&#148; by Lavater. Bound in later full leather, with gilt title on spine. Subjects: Immortality. Socrates. Judaism - Apologetic works. Lavater Controversy. Less than 18 copies of each of the Lavater letters on OCLC; in some cases OCLC lists only a single one of these letters. Phaedon lacks pages 23-26.
