        The Theory of Moral Sentiments. To which is added A Dissertation on the Origin of Languages. The Third Edition.

      London: printed for A. Millar, A. Kincaid and J. Bell; and sold by T. Cadell, 1767 - Octavo (211 x 124 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, neatly rebacked preserving the original spine, red morocco label with double rule border in gilt, compartments double ruled in gilt, raised bands, sprinkled red edges. With the final blank leaf. Extremities lightly bumped and corners gently bruised, front hinge cracked but firm, endpapers browned from turn-ins, front free endpaper a little loose at gutter, occasional foxing and offsetting to contents, overall a very good copy. Neat 20th-century ownership stamp of Swiss librarian Jean-Christophe Curtet, Geneva, to title leaf verso. Third edition, the first edition to include the "Dissertation on the Origin of Languages", one of 750 copies. It contains "some minor revisions, especially to passages involving comment on religion" (Tribe), which Smith made upon his return from France in 1766. The "Dissertation" had been previously published in The Philological Miscellany (1761). Having been described as "Professor of Moral Philosophy in the University of Glasgow" on the title pages of the first and second editions, Smith wrote to Strahan ahead of the publication of this edition to ask him to "call me simply Adam Smith without any addition either before or behind" (letter 100, Mossner & Ross, p. 122). While his academic title was removed, he was still credited as "LL.D.", and this remained on the title page of the subsequent editions, thus cementing his reputation as "Dr Smith". Goldsmiths' 10384; Higgs 3967; Kress 6496; Jessop, p. 170; Tribe 4. See Mossner & Ross, The Correspondence of Adam Smith (1987).

        Saggio sulla natura del commercio in generale. Autore Inglese.

      Venice: Carlo Palese,, 1767. Duodecimo (161 x 94 mm). Uncut in contemporary carta rustica, manuscript paper spine label. Printer's device on title. Head of spine and top edge of lower board skilfully restored, spine label a little chipped; pale damp-mark to gutter of lower margin, final 20 leaves with small stain to upper margin; occasional light spotting, 2 small wormholes to first 2 leaves: a very good copy, entirely uncut. First edition in Italian of Cantillon's Essai sur la nature du commerce en général, first published in French in 1755. This translation, attributed to F. Scottoni who signs the dedication, is extremely scarce, OCLC locating only the British Library copy. Richard Cantillon (c.1680–1734) was an Irish-born banker and economist, forced to emigrate to continental Europe by the Williamite confiscations. He honed his financial skills working for the British army's paymaster-general during the latter stages of the War of the Spanish Succession. He next proved his understanding of the market by making fortunes speculating against John Law's Mississippi Company and by purchasing put options (the right to sell at a predetermined price) during the height of the South Sea Bubble. His successful speculations reinforced his view that the monetary system must be based on intrinsically valuable metals. The Essai is notable for its model building, its analysis of market forces and the role of the entrepreneur, its outline of the circular flow of income, and its monetary theory. The Essai had a significant influence in developing Quesnay's circular flow of income and on Adam Smith's theory of resource allocation in the Wealth of Nations (1776). In distinguishing between market price and intrinsic value and showing how resources moved into those sectors where the market price was above intrinsic value, and away from those sectors where market price was below intrinsic value, Cantillon influenced Adam Smith's famous distinction between market price and natural price. Cantillon also pre-empted later studies of human population, with a brief but almost complete anticipation of the principles of Malthus.

        Messiah. An Oratorio in Score as it was Originally Perform'd. Composed by Mr. Handel, to which are Added his Additional Alterations, Randall & Abell, successors to the late Mr. J. Walsh. Printed By Messrs. Randall & Abell, Successors to the Late Mr. J. Walsh in Catharine Street in the Strand-of Whom May be Had the Compleat Scores of Samson, Alexander's Feast, and Acis & Galatea.

      London Randell & Abell Circa 1767 - First edition, early printing of the instrumental and vocal score, engraved portrait frontispiece by J. Houbraken, engraved title, list of subscribers, index, 188 pages engraved throughout, plus 35 Appendix pages, very occasional, light marginal finger-soiling, mostly to preliminary pages, else very good, quarter calf over contemporary marbled boards, rebacked with gilt morocco lettering piece, later endpapers, all edges untrimmed, mild rubbing to extremities and bumping to corners (restored), otherwise a handsome, clean, early copy. While visiting Dublin in 1742, Handel was hungry to capitalise on his eager audience following on the success of two series of concerts he gave there, so he arranged the first performance of Messiah on April 13th. The premiere of Messiah was a triumph. The alto soloist, Susanna Cibber, was an actress who had attracted scandal in the past but legend has it that her emotional performance of 'He was despised' moved Dr Patrick Delany – the husband of one of Handel's most ardent champions - to exclaim 'Woman, for this, be all your sins forgiven'. The Dublin Journal's review proclaimed that 'the best Judges allowed it to be the most finished piece of Musick. Words are wanting to express the exquisite Delight it afforded to the admiring crouded Audience. The Sublime, the Grand, and the Tender, adapted to the most elevated, majestick and moving Words, conspired to transport and charm the ravished Heart and Ear.' ESTC T189237.

        Essais sur le commerce; le luxe; l'argent; l'intérêt de l'argent; les impots; le crédit public, et la balance du commerce.

      Paris & Lyon: Saillant & Aimé Delaroche,, 1767. Traduction nouvelle, avec des Réflexions du Traducteur. Et lettre d'un négociant de Londres, a un de ses amis … Traduite sur la seconde édition, imprimée à Londres en 1765. Octavo (166 x 103 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label to spine, compartments ruled in gilt with floral motifs, raised bands, boards ruled in blind, marbled endpapers and edges. Engraved head- and tailpieces. Annotations to front free endpaper verso and rear free endpaper recto. Extremities lightly rubbed, corners bruised, contents tanned with a few ink marks, otherwise an excellent copy. Third edition in French of Hume's Political Discourses, translating the seven essays on economics which first appeared in English in 1752. Together they rank as one of the major economic writings of the eighteenth century. Hume's specific contributions to economic thought include the so-called "specie-flow mechanism" and the "theory of creeping inflation". O'Brien describes Hume's two essays "Of Money" and "Of the Balance of Trade" as forming "nothing less than the foundation of classical monetary economics" (The Classical Economists, p. 7ff). Although the translation has generally been attributed to Mademoiselle de la Chaux, Laurence Bongie has argued that it cannot be so conclusively credited.

        The English Works.

      London: Printed for T. Davies and J. Dodsley,, [1767]. With notes and observations, and the author's life. By James Bennet. Quarto (283 x 217 mm). Contemporary mottled calf (sometime skilfully repaired at front joint, head of spine and head of lower joint), richly gilt spine with pomegranate device and scrolling floriate motifs, red morocco twin labels, single line gilt border on sides, gilt roll tool turn-ins, yellow edges, marbled endpapers. Attractive rococo head-piece to dedication (with arms of Earl of Shaftesbury), engraved by F. Garden. A little wear to corners, minor paper flaw at fore-edge of title page. A very good copy. First collected and first Johnson edition, second issue: "this issue is distinguished by the new half-title and undated title, and by the absence of the single leaf of 'Additional Subscribers'; in all other respects it comprises the sheets from the first issue of 1761" (Fleeman). With the 4-page list of subscribers, to whom the book was originally issued in January 1762. The dedication "To Anthony Ashley Cooper, Earl of Shaftesbury," and the "Life of Roger Ascham" were written by Samuel Johnson. "Tom Davis stated that Johnson was 'in reality' the editor, and that he (Johnson) gave the work to Bennet for his advantage" (Courtney). Bennet was a "distressed schoolmaster" of a boarding school at Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire. Roger Ascham (1514/15-1568) was appointed tutor to Princess Elizabeth in 1548, Latin Secretary to Queen Mary in 1553 and private tutor to Queen Elizabeth in 1558. This collected edition gathers together three works: Toxophilus (1545), The Scholemaster (1570) and the Report of the Affairs of Germany (1552); the "Letters to Queen Elizabeth and others" are described as "now first published from the Manuscripts". This would appear to be the first printing of Toxophilus outside of the editions of the 16th century. A very attractive period binding with an intriguing and enigmatic provenance: the lower spine label carries a small gilt supralibros (which appears to be, in heraldic terms: on a bend three roundels), this has been carefully obliterated by a gilt reticulated pattern. With the Fasque bookplate of the Gladstone family: Fasque was "the Scottish house in the Mearns, in Kincardineshire, bought by [William Ewart Gladstone's] father, where he spent many parliamentary recesses until his father's death in 1851" (ODNB).

        Picturae Etruscorum in vasculis nunc primum in unum collectae, explicationibus, et dissertaionibus inlustrate .

      J. Zempel Rome -1775 1767 - First edition. 3 volumes, folio (45.5 x 29.8 cm), 3 half-titles, 3 engraved frontispieces, titles printed in red and black with engraved vignette, engraved initials, head and tailpieces, woodcut illustrations, engraved dedication leaf in volumes 2 and 3, 301 engraved plates (some double-page), 3 woodcut plates in volume 3, contemporary half pink vellum with patterned paper boards, spines gilt in compartments, uncut, some light foxing and browning, side lightly rubbed, a very good example. Passeri (1694-1780) was a respected antiquarian who primarily focused on Etruscan civilisation. This work was one of many published in the eighteenth century which saw the Etruscans as pioneers, artists and inventors whose achievements were overshadowed by the Romans. Passeri also contributes in this work to contemporary discussion on the Etruscan and Oscan languages. The three volumes illustrate vases from important collections all over Italy. Many of these vases were housed in the Galleria Clementina of the Vatican Library. Many of the vases illustrated in this work have been lost, making this publication a valuable record. A pupil of Domenichino, Passeri is first recorded as a practising artist in 1634, when he was working, together with Giovanni Angelo Canini (1617–c.1666), at the Villa Aldobrandini, Frascati. In 1638 he was admitted to the Accademia di S Luca (succeeding Domenichino as President in 1663), and in 1641 he became a member of the Virtuosi del Pantheon. In 1661 he executed frescoes in the Palazzo Pamphili, Rome, and in September 1665 he was paid by the Costaguti family for an altarpiece of the Crucifixion for their church at Roccalvecce, near Viterbo.

        Recherches sur le tissu muqueux, ou l'organe cellulaire, et sur quelques maladies de la potrine. On y joint une Dissertation du même Auteur, sur l'usage des Eau de Baréges, dans les Ecrouelles.

      Paris , Chez Pierre Franc. Didot et Jeune, 1767, 8, (6), X, (2), 227, (1) pp., feiner Ledereinband der Zeit Rücken erneuert. First Edition!Considered one of the most important works in the history of cell theory, Bordeu "described connective tissue - under the name mucous tissue - showing its role in exchanges, the phenomena of nutrition, and the mechanical equilibrium of organs and tissues".Théophile de Bordeu (1722-1776) was one of the more important French physicians of the 18th century, "the founder of the Vitalistic School of Montpellier", "founder of modern hydrotherapy", "Father of Endocrinology" he first conceived the idea of internal secretion by his hypothesis that every organ, tissue, and cell discharges into the blood products which influence other parts of the body."The son and grandson of Bérnese physicians, Bordeu studied medicine in Montpellier, where he received his medical degree on 10 November 1743. He returned to Montpellier for further study in 1745 and in 1746 went to Paris, where he devoted his time particularly to the clinical examination of patients at La Charité hospital. He returned to Béarn, to Pau, in the posts of intendant and superintendent of the mineral waters of Aquitaine, drawing attention to their therapeutic value through a newspaper that he founded. His reputation led to his appointment as a corresponding member of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Paris in 1847.In 1752 Bordeu went again to Paris, with the intention of practicing medicine, but he had to observe the regulation that only graduates of the Paris Faculty of Medicine could practice in the Capital. He renewed his studies and was again graduated M.D. on 7 October 1754. At this time he became an attending physician at La Charité. Very soon he attracted a large practice, which aroused jealousy. As the result of a conspiracy organized by Michel-Philippe Bouvart, his name was removed from the list of Paris physicians in 1761, an act that had the effect of preventing him from practicing. Bordeu defended himself vigorously and was reinstated in 1764. His success with patients continued, and he cared for many important persons, among them Madame Du Barry.The part that Bordeu played in the history of thermalism has caused him to be considered the founder of modern hydrotherapy. It was through him that the baths of the Pyrenees became known throughout the south of France and even in Paris. His 'Journal de Barèges' and his 'Recherches sur les maladies chroniques' (1775) are among his most important contributions to this field.Bordeu also studied anatomy. In 1747 he published 'Recherches anatomiques sur les articulations des os de la face', which won him membership in the Academy of Sciences. He had already written a treatise on the formation of chyle, 'Chylificationis historia' (1742), that foreshadowed his important work on the glands, 'Recherches anatomiques sur les differentes positions des glandes et sur leur action' (1752). In the latter he announced the double innervation (trophic and functional) of glands and Organs, thus proving the existence of secretory nerves. He offered in evidence a local increase in the circulation when a gland is in action and, while emphasizing the influence of the imagination, showed that excretion is due to the gland itself and not the surrounding muscles. This shows the importance of Bordeu as a precursor in the Science that in the twentieth Century came to be distinguished as endocrinology. Finally, he demonstrated that secretion is the active elaboration of a new product separate from the constituents of the blood. Bordeu completed this sequence with his famous 'Recherches sur le tissu muqueux' (1767), in which he described connective tissue-under the name of mucous tissue-showing its role in exchanges, the phenomena of nutrition, and the mechanical equilibrium of Organs and tissues.Semeiology also interested Bordeu. His 'Recherches sur les crises' appeared in Didcrot's Encyclopédie, as did his 'Recherches sur le pouls par rapport aux crises'. Both mark him as a clinician of the first Order who knew how to obtain a large number of diagnostic and prognostic facts from an examination. Since Bordeu, physicians take the pulse by applying the tips of the four fingers to the hollow of the radius.Bordeu played a great role in the history of medical theories. His thesis at Montpellier, 'De sensu generice considerato' ("On the Senses, Considered Generically," 1742), suggested the direction in which he was heading. His other works demonstrated that he considered each organ as having its own life and believed that life was the sum of all these "little fives" of the organs. Coordination among them was due to the mucous tissues. The organs and glands were set in motion by an irritation termed "sensibility." These ideas opened the way for vitalism, a doctrine of which the school of Montpellier became the champion." Louis Dulieu, DSB II, pp.301-302Garrison, Hist. 263/64 (with portrait). Wellcome II, 204.

Johann August Unzers Wochenschrift 'Der Arzt' (1759-1764) (Göttingen 1999)"."De uitgave van 'Der Arzt: eine medicinische Wochenschrift' maakte de Duitse arts en geleerde Johann August Unzer (1727-1799) tot een van de beroemdste medici van de achttiende eeuw. Hij wist allerlei medische onderwerpen toegankelijk te maken voor de ontwikkelde burger, en toonde zich daarbij bovendien een uitstekend schrijver; mannen als Goethe en Jean Paul prezen de literaire kwaliteit van zijn werk. Herhaaldelijk heeft hij zich in zijn tijdschrift beziggehouden met hypochondrie, dé modeziekte van de sentimentele achttiende eeuw.In het voorwoord bij de eerste aflevering zet Unzer zijn bedoeling uiteen. Hij wil zijn lezers tot een gezonde levenswijze brengen, zodat ze geen dokter nodig hebben en, mocht dat onverhoopt toch het geval zijn, in ieder geval kwakzalvers mijden, die onze beurs, ons lighaam, ons leven ondermynen. Later ging hij er ook toe over geneezingen van ziekten, welke veel voorkoomen, op een' ligt verstaanbaaren trant te beschryven, zoals hij schrijft in het Afscheid van den Artz van zyne Lezers in het 250ste en laatste vertoog, dat ook een uitgebreid register op de twaalf delen bevat.'Der Arzt' verscheen van 1759 tot 1764; in 1769 volgde een tweede herziene uitgave. De Nederlandse vertaling verscheen van 1765 tot 1771 bij (de Wed.) K. van Tongerlo. De hier aangeboden uitgave uit 1771 is daarvan deels een herdruk, deels (de delen 7-11) een titeluitgave. De buitengemeene sterke aftrek die de 'Artz of Geneesheer' ook in Nederland had, bracht de uitgever er toe in een 'Naleezing' van vier delen alle aanvankelijk weggelaten vertogen alsnog te publiceren."

        The English Works. With notes and observations, and the author's life. By James Bennet.

      London: Printed for T. Davies and J. Dodsley, [1767] - Quarto (283 x 217 mm). Contemporary mottled calf (sometime skilfully repaired at front joint, head of spine and head of lower joint), richly gilt spine with pomegranate device and scrolling floriate motifs, red morocco twin labels, single line gilt border on sides, gilt roll tool turn-ins, yellow edges, marbled endpapers. A little wear to corners, minor paper flaw at fore-edge of title page. A very good copy. Attractive rococo head-piece to dedication (with arms of Earl of Shaftesbury), engraved by F. Garden. First collected and first Johnson edition, second issue: "this issue is distinguished by the new half-title and undated title, and by the absence of the single leaf of 'Additional Subscribers'; in all other respects it comprises the sheets from the first issue of 1761" (Fleeman). With the 4-page list of subscribers, to whom the book was originally issued in January 1762. The dedication "To Anthony Ashley Cooper, Earl of Shaftesbury," and the "Life of Roger Ascham" were written by Samuel Johnson. "Tom Davis stated that Johnson was 'in reality' the editor, and that he (Johnson) gave the work to Bennet for his advantage" (Courtney). Bennet was a "distressed schoolmaster" of a boarding school at Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire. Roger Ascham (1514/15-1568) was appointed tutor to Princess Elizabeth in 1548, Latin Secretary to Queen Mary in 1553 and private tutor to Queen Elizabeth in 1558. This collected edition gathers together three works: Toxophilus (1545), The Scholemaster (1570) and the Report of the Affairs of Germany (1552); the "Letters to Queen Elizabeth and others" are described as "now first published from the Manuscripts". This would appear to be the first printing of Toxophilus outside of the editions of the 16th century. A very attractive period binding with an intriguing and enigmatic provenance: the lower spine label carries a small gilt supralibros (which appears to be, in heraldic terms: on a bend three roundels), this has been carefully obliterated by a gilt reticulated pattern. With the Fasque bookplate of the Gladstone family: Fasque was "the Scottish house in the Mearns, in Kincardineshire, bought by [William Ewart Gladstone's] father, where he spent many parliamentary recesses until his father's death in 1851" (ODNB).

        The Universal English Short-Hand; or, the Way of Writing English in the most easy, concise, regular, and beautiful manner, applicable to any other language, but particularly adjusted to our own.

      - Manchester, Joseph Harrop, 1767. 8vo. Contemporary calf, pp. [4], ix, [3]-92, 13 engraved plates (one in pagination), scratching and wear to binding, but cords holding firm, lamp oil spotting to beginning and end; provenance: contemporary engraved armorial bookplate Ben. Slade inside front cover; slightly later Dublin bookdealer's label. First edition of Byrom's popular system of shorthand, which had been in use for a number of years by many prominent figures, including the Wesleys, Horace Walpole, and others. In 1723 at Cambridge young Byrom, from a Manchester family of merchants, developed his own system of shorthand, because he was dissatisfied with the existing ones. 'He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in March 1724, and contributed two papers on the subject of shorthand to its Philosophical Transactions . For a number of years he spent much time in London, Cambridge, and Oxford, teaching pupils the art of shorthand. They paid 5 guineas, and were sworn to secrecy, becoming members of what Byrom, again perhaps facetiously, called his Societas Tachygraphica (‘Speedwriting Society’). He built up a wide range of acquaintances in the course of promoting his system, until the death of his elder brother on 12 May 1740 put him in possession of the family property and relieved him of the need to teach it. He remained closely associated with it, however: he had printed new Proposals in 1739, and an act of parliament, passed on 5 May 1742, gave him the sole rights to the system for twenty-one years. It was finally made available to all by being published in its entirety in 1767 as The Universal English Short-Hand. [Attributes: First Edition]

Således udgav han i 1764 Fauna Insectorum Fridrichsdalina. 1772 blev han efter Oeder udgiver af Flora Danica."Som iagttager, som nøgtern bedømmer af det sete, uhildet af andres meninger, og med sin evne til at systematisere de mikroskopiske dyr og planter var M. langt forud for sin tid, men i sin almindelige tankegang var han i høj grad et barn af den." (S. L. Tuxen). Pritzel 6536. Christensen II,63,6. Bibl. Dan. II, 190. As tudor in a noble family Fr. O. Müller spent the summers at Frederiksdal Castle, a little to the north of Copenhagen. His educational duties involved his introducing his pupil into the elements of the all-victorious naural science, with the result that his own interest was caught by the study of the living nature; from the year 1758 he began his researches, with the works of Linnaeus as his guide. Müller's second foreign journey took him through Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France and Holland, was of much greater importance to his scientific development. While in Strassburg in 1766 he published his first large botanical work "Flora Fridrichsdalina".
