        Essay sur l'Usage de l'Artillerie dans la Guerre de Campagne et dans celle des Sieges. Par Monsieur Dupuget Captne. au Corps Royal de l'artie. [Bound with;] Memoire plus Detaillé sur la Construction des Batteries devant une Place Assiégée.

      A Grenoble, le 8e Ceptembre [sic] 1767 - Small quarto (203 × 163mm), manuscript, [vi], 294pp., [iv], 47pp. Contemporary mottled sheep, red morocco label, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with floral and foliate tools, red edge-stain, green silk page-marker. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Short marginal tear to the uncoloured plate, no loss, light browning, page numbering slightly cropped in places, a little rubbed at the extremities, headcap chipped, joints slightly cracked, but overall very good indeed. 4 folding coloured plates and one uncoloured. A handsome and highly interesting manuscript. The first published edition was issued by Arckstée & Merkus in Amsterdam in 1771, credited to "un Officier du Corps," the author previously identified by Barbier as Edme-Jean-Antoine Du Puget. Du Puget (1742-1802) was a member of an old aristocratic family from Bresse and was introduced to the corps by his uncle Joseph-Etienne Dupuget, who was an officer. He distinguished himself in the war in Corsica receiving the Croix de Saint-Louis and being advanced to the rank of marechal de camp. Shortly afterwards he was made inspector-general of the forces in America, and spent two years overseas, returning to become assistant instructor to the dauphin, for which services he was made a count. On the death of his pupil he retired to Amiens occupying himself with "ses paisibles études" (Michaud) until arrested and imprisoned during the Revolution. On his release he withdrew with his family to his estate at d'Hargicourt, but driven by his thirst for knowledge returned to Paris to study at the School of Mining. He died there aged 60. This study was evidently very well thought of, circulating in manuscript before it was finally published. There are copies in the Library of the Society of the Cincinnati and at Nantes, all of which seem to vary slightly, both from the printed text and from each other. The published form lacks the dissertation on the prerogative of officers in the placing of batteries, pp.125-138, also his comments of siege craft at pp. 152-153 and the entire appendix "Memoire sur la Machine", pp.288-294 and accompanying plate. A comparison with the Nantes manuscript, which is dated 1760, shows that it lacks the "Memoire sur la Construction des Batteries", the appendix is registered as a separate item, and the three plates are printed and uncoloured. Perhaps a traditionalist in some of his views, he defends the position of artillery against Folard's innovations, but is progressive in others, calling for a broad-based education for artillerymen, "bien d'autres etudes que celle de la guerre, et de la mechanique. On ne peut esperer d'y parvenir avec distinction, si l'on ne joint a ces premieres sciences, la phisique; les plus interessantes parties de la chimie, la geographie, l'art de fortifier, auant aux profiles et la direction des feux; l'architecture civile; et l'hydrostatique et l'hydraulique, en tout ce qui peut concerner les operation de la guerre. pour le dire en peu de mots, la vie d'un bon officiers de Corps Royale, est une etude perpetuelle." Like his own, the life of an artillery officer should be one of perpetual study. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Theory of Moral Sentiments.

      London: Printed for A. Millar, A. Kincaid and J. Bell; and sold by T. Cadell,, 1767. To which is added A Dissertation on the Origin of Languages. The Third Edition. Octavo (204 x 125 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, red morocco label with triple rule border in gilt, compartments double ruled in gilt, raised bands, boards double ruled in gilt. With the final blank leaf, bound without the front free endpaper. Occasional pencil annotations to the text. Extremities a little worn, corners bumped, joints split but firm, a few marks to boards, endpapers and title page browned from turn-ins, bound without the front free endpaper. Contents browned and foxed with a small nick to leaf D1, otherwise a very good copy. Third edition of Smith's first book, the first edition to include the "Dissertation on the Origin of Languages", one of 750 copies, and the work that established his reputation as a philosopher both in London and on the continent. It contains "some minor revisions, especially to passages involving comment on religion" (Tribe), which Smith made upon his return from France in 1766. After being 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". The "Dissertation" had been previously published in The Philological Miscellany (1761) as "Considerations Concerning the First Formation of Languages".

        MALAYSIA – TIOMAN ISLAND: A DRAUGHT OF THE BAY ON THE S W. SIDE OF ISLAND TIMOAN THE WHOLE SURVEYED & DRAWN WITH ACCURACY BY WM. NICHELSON, MASTER OF HIS MAJESTY’S SHIP ELIZABETH, IN JANUARY 1763.

      London, []. 1767 - Copper engraving on thick paper, with original extension fly-leaf of remarks contemporarily pasted to left blank margin (Very Good, chart clean with strong engraving impression; fly-leaf on much thinner paper, a little creased with a discreet closed tear), 42 x 61 cm (16.5 x 24 inches) + extension fly-leaf. Very Rare – the first printing of Captain William Nichelson’s fine chart and profile view of Tioman Island (Malaysia), then a important waypoint for navigation between the Straits of Malacca and the Far East, issued within William Herbert’s ‘A New Directory for the East Indies’ – a stellar example with the often-lacking original extension fly-leaf of remarks. This is the very rare first edition, first state of Captain William Nichelson’s highly attractive chart and mariner’s view of Tioman Island (Malaysia), then an important waypoint for navigation between the Straits of Malacca and the Far East. It is based on an a manuscript chart by Nichelson, the master of the HMS Elizabeth, drafting during his visit to the island in January 1763, and was first published within the third edition of William Herbert’s important atlas of oriental navigation, A New Directory for the East Indies (London, 1767). Nichelson’s work is by far and away the finest 18th Century depiction of the Tioman, and was copied for some decades by various map publishers. The present example of the chart is marquis, as it features the often-lacking fly-leaf of nautical remarks, contemporarily pasted to the chart’s left blank margin.Tioman Island (Malay: Pulau Tioman) is roughly 20 km (12 miles) long and 12 km (7.5 miles) wide, located in the south China Sea about 32 km (20 miles) off of the east coast of mainland Malaysia. Described by Time magazine as one of the World’s most beautiful islands, Tioman is mountainous and covered in jungle, while its shores are surrounded by coral reefs. Today it is a nature preserve and one of the most popular scuba diving sites in Southeast Asia. SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

        Plan de la Ville de Paris et de Ses Faubourgs Dédié au Roi

      Rare 18th century map of the city of Paris and its environs, divided into four sheets of twenty sections each, mounted on canvas and folded, to make a large map of approximately 38-1/2 by 56-1/4 inches, dedicated to King Louis XV, with scale and explanation of abbreviations, each sheet with a three-column list of landmarks and places on the map, including streets, public squares, fountains, ports, bridges, chapels, colleges, hospitals, hôtels, royal houses, convents, markets, and other notable locations and sites, the map marked along the top and side with letters from B to Y and numbers from 1 to 16. Some spotting, redness, and foxing. Four sheets loose, housed in a cardboard slipcase with handwritten notation to spine, wear and chipping to case. Paris (Jaillot) 1767. With privilege 1748, corrected and augmented in 1765. The orientation of the map, with North to the left, is the same as that adopted by Jacques Gomboust in 1652 or Pierre Bullet in 1675. This system presents the western façades of churches and other important buildings to the viewer. In his 2007 work "Les Plans de Paris des origines (1493) à la fin du XVIIIe siècle", historian Jean Boutier cites eleven editions of this map, published between 1748 and 1787. According to Boutier at the time, no extant copies of the 1767 are known. In fact, while WorldCat lists other similar maps of Paris by Jaillot, as of October 2017 there is not a single listing for the 1767 edition.
