      London - P. Vaillant, 1767 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Full calf leather binding with gilt borders to the boards Jean-Franois Marmontel (July 11, 1723 December 31, 1799) was a French historian and writer, a member of the Encyclopediste movement. In 1758 he gained the patronage of Madame de Pompadour, who obtained for him a place as a civil servant, and the management of the official journal Le Mercure, in which he had already begun the famous series of Contes moraux. The merit of these tales lies partly in the delicate finish of the style, but mainly in the graphic and charming pictures of French society under King Louis XV. The author was elected to the Acadmie franaise in 1763. In 1767 he published Blisaire, now remarkable in part because of a chapter on religious toleration which incurred the censure of the Sorbonne and the archbishop of Paris. Marmontel retorted in Les Incas (1778) by tracing the cruelties in Spanish America to the religious fanaticism of the invaders. Condition: The binding is split in the centre and the two halves are holding very loosely by the cords only and may fully detach in the post. The rear board is attached but the front board is detached though present. The rear outer hinge is cracked but holding. There is some wear to the extremities including some chips with loss to the top and tail of the spine and loss of half the spine label. The corners are also a little bumped. Internally the book is generally clean and bright apart from some mild spots in places. Overall the book is very good internally in fair binding..

        Remarks on a Pamphlet Lately published by the Rev. Mr. Maskelyne, under the Authority of the Board of Longitude

      1 p.l., 34 pp. Title ruled in red. 8vo, modern half-calf & marbled boards, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: W. Sandby, 1767. First edition and very rare; inscribed on the title "For Mr Bowman." This is Harrison's impassioned reply to Maskelyne's An Account of the going..., published earlier in the year. Harrison defends his chronometer against the charges of Maskelyne that the instrument did not keep accurate time. Harrison points out that, eliminating the going in unwarranted positions and temperatures (four vertical positions and face downwards and in temperatures ranging from freezing to well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit), the accuracy complied with that required by the Act. Fine copy and, for some reason, very rare. ❧Baillie, Clocks and Watches. An Historical Bibliography, p. 272. .

        A rare, coveted signed volume from the library of Thomas Jefferson, one of his most recommended for historical and legal reading

      Memoires de Maximilien de Bethune, Duc de Sully, Principal Ministre de Henri le Grand;... Nouvelle Edition.... (Londres, 1767). Vol. 8, 12mo, vi, 375pp.,bound in contemporary French mottled calf gilt, morocco spine labels. Signed with his ownership initial, "T" beside the printed binder's signature mark ("I") at the bottom of page 187 (Jefferson's typical style of ownership signature used in books from his library in which he substituted "I" for "J"). Bound in contemporary calf boards with ribbed, titled spine. Bindings worn and cracked at joins, occasional minor fox mark, some light tanning, overall, very good condition. Sowerby notes that Sully?s Memoires ?are usually included in Jefferson?s lists of recommended historical reading.? Sowerby further notes that the first set that Jefferson owned, the set that was part of the library he sold the to Library of Congress, was the 1778 edition, purchased from Frullé in September, 1788. The present volume was almost certainly purchased as a set by Jefferson to replace the volumes sold to the Library of Congress in 1815. This volume is from the set listed in the 1829 auction catalogue of Jefferson?s library, but it was apparently kept by Thomas Jefferson Randolph, his grandson. It is not surprising that Jefferson would recommend Sully?s memoirs as part of a course of historical reading, or that he would be sure to have a set at hand for himself?"the two men shared several common notions. Maximilien de Bethune, duc de Sully (1560-1641) served King Henry IV of France in several capacities, as an army officer, engineer, Superintendent of Finances, and as a confidential advisor. As did Jefferson, Sully strongly favored agriculture over industry as an economic base, and encouraged its expansion. He also encouraged stock raising and forbade the destruction of forests. In order to facilitate trade, Sully encouraged internal improvements, sponsoring canals, roads, and bridges, and he abolished export fees on grains and wine. The first portion of Sully?s memoirs were originally published in 1638, and the work was translated into several languages and reprinted often. Jefferson compiled three substantial libraries in his lifetime, but books from his collection are exceptionally scarce on the market. To find a set of books that Jefferson thought of so highly, and with whose author he was in such agreement, is rare indeed. (Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, 199). Volumes from Jefferson's library infrequently appear on the market. We are aware of three that have appeared on the market in the past fifteen years, all signed in the same fashion, and have brought from $25,000 to over $40,000 at auction. Most recently, on December 16, 2014, a volume from this very same set (but not in as nice condition as ours) sold for over $28,000 (with buyers premium) at public auction: Thomas Jefferson2. Thomas Jefferson Randolph as was noted in a separate volume from the original set "Th:J/Edge Hill? Virginia"3. Sarah N.

      Paris: Chez Merlin 8vo (19.9 cm, 7.8"). [4], x, 340, [6] pp.; 4 plts.. 1767 First edition, early state, featuring the frontispiece and three copper-engraved plates designed by Gravelot. Quickly translated into numerous languages following its initial publication, Marmontel's controversial philosophical novel was written in great part in the hope that its retelling of the story of Gen. Flavius Beisarius of the Byzantine Empire would convince Louis XV to become, himself, the longed-for Philosopher-King. Chapter 15, however, in which Marmontel advocates freedom of opinion and religious tolerance, inspired extensive commentary by Voltaire and others and brought on condemnation by both the Sorbonne and the Archbishop of Paris — though it may ultimately have helped the Huguenot cause. Merlin also printed a duodecimo edition in 1767; in the present edition, "Fragmens de philosophie morale" is found on pp. 273–340, followed by the Addition and Approbation. Provenance: Front pastedown with large, round, gilt-stamped armorial leather bookplate of notable 19th-century book collector Edward Hailcrone; smaller, round, cream-colored leather gilt-stamped “I.T.” bookplate with motto “Inter folia fructus” of 19th-century bookseller and bookcollector James Toovey; and paper bookplate of Sir Montague Shearman. Binding: Contemporary crimson morocco, covers framed in gilt triple fillets; spine gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather labels, board edges and turn-ins with gilt rolls. This volume (complete in itself) seems at one time to have been part of a set of Marmontel's works, and bears an (unnumbered) spine label reading "Oeuvres de Marmontel. Binding as above, with edges, extremities, and joints showing minor rubbing. Front pastedown with bookplates as above; front free endpaper with affixed slip of early cataloguing; rear pastedown with small chip out of paper. Light spots of foxing, slightly heavier around plates. All edges gilt.

In 1716 she accompanied her husband, Edward Montague, on his diplomatic mission to Constantinople, making the journey overland. The letters she wrote back home are justly ranked among the most celebrated of their kind in a century richly endowed with excellent letterwriters. She became a great admirer of Turkish culture and her work includes in sights that were exceptional for their time.

Contemporary green morocco, covers bordered with a triple gilt fillet, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Provenance: Mark Masterman Sykes (vellum gilt booklabel) A very fine copy of the first French edition of the ornithological portions of Ray's `Synopsis methodica avium & piscium' (London, 1713), here in its most desirable form with the plates hand-coloured. A translation of John Ray's posthumous work in Latin, Synopsis Avium (1713), this edition greatly augmented by François Salerne with his own observations and others taken from Belon, Aldrovanus, Willughby, Gesner and Linnaeus. "The whole constitutes a work on ornithology of considerable value, furnishing a description of many species of birds, their habits, physical characters, vulgar names," (Wood) and other information. Of further note are the illustrations, engraved by and after Martinet. The present copy is one only a few deluxe examples with hand coloured plates. The "Avertissement" mentions (English translation follows): "Ce Livre est orné de trente-une Planches, qui représentent la figure de cent Oiseaux. Ces Planches sont supérieurement executes par un des plus habiles Artistes que nous ayons en ce genre? Ils ont tous été dessinès & graves d'après nature? Comme les Planches les mieux gravées ne sauroient marquer parfaitement les couleurs naturelles des objets qu'elles représentent, le Librarire avertit les Amateurs & les Curieux, qu'il a fait colorier d'après nature un petit nombre d'Exemplaires des Planches de cet Ouvrage: on y verra les Oiseaux avec toute la beauté, la vivacité & les differentes nuances de leurs couleurs. Ces Planches sont peintes & coloriées d'apès nature, avec le plus grand soin. Chaque Exemplaire ainsi peint & colorié se vendra 150 liv. relié magnifiquement en maroquin." (p. viii). [This book is decorated with 31 plates, which include one hundred figures of birds. These plates are executed in a superior fashion by one of the best artists that we have working in this field? They are all drawn and engraved after nature? As even the best engravings cannot adequately portray the natural colours of their subjects, the Publishers advise both the amateur and the dilettanti, that they have had a small number of sets of the plates to this work coloured from nature: one is thus able to appreciate the full beauty of the birds, their liveliness and the range of the colouring. These plates are drawn and coloured from nature, in the best possible taste. Each example so coloured will be offered for sale at 150 liv., magnificently bound in morocco.] Anker 414; Cottrell 16l; Fine Birds Books (1990) p. 133; Keynes Ray 106; Nissen IVB 757; Nissen SVB 397; Ronsil 2683; Thiébaud 823.

Thomas Hollis (1720-1774), English republican philosopher and biblio-philanthropist was influential in the publication of the first three editions of Archdeacon Francis Blackburne's politically and theologically incendiary work The Confessional. Hearing of the manuscript attack on the restrictive conformity of Anglican doctrine and specifically the 39 Articles through Bishop Law, Hollis commissioned Andrew Miller to procure and publish the work. Miller duly succeeded, first publishing the work in 1766, apparently with 'signs of Hollis' influence' in the design of the title page (Bond, W.H. Thomas Hollis of Lincoln's Inn. Cambridge, 1990), albeit with the name of his sometime associate Samuel Bladon to the imprint. A transatlantic pamphlet war involving Archbishop Secker, Caleb Fleming and Blackburne's son-in-law John Disney (eventual beneficiary of the Hollis estate) followed the first edition, provoking publication of this second in 1767 and a third edition in 1770. The connection between Hollis and Blackburne persisted, with the latter compiling Memoirs of Thomas Hollis (London, 1780). Copies of all three editions of The Confessional were acquired by Hollis for distribution in Europe and America, and several similarly bound examples are held in the libraries at Princeton, St Andrews and of course at Harvard, who were major beneficiaries of Holli's donations. This item was possibly lot 361, Sothebys 1956 Hely Hutchinson sale - else another identically bound copy with the same tooling. Sawyer, £16 ESTC T67379.. Second Edition. 8vo.

        Prinz Heinrich von Preußen

      1767. . Georg Friedrich Schmidt (1712 Schönerlinde bei Berlin - 1775 Berlin). Prinz Heinrich von Preußen. Nach Carle van Loo, 1767. Radierung auf starkem Bütten, 50,5 x 36 cm, unten rechts in der Platte signiert "Grave par G. F. Schmidt, Graveur du Roy 1767.". Wessely 49 II (von III). Vor dem Doppelpunkt zwischen "Roy" und Jahreszahl. Ausgezeichneter Druck mit schmalem Rändchen. Geringe Papierschäden und Knitterspuren an der linken oberen Ecke außerhalb der Darstellung, leicht angestaubt, sonst von sehr guter Erhaltung. zum Werk Der nach einem Ölgemälde von Charles-Amedee-Philippe van Loo angefertigte Kupferstich zeigt den 39jährigen Prinzen und jüngeren Bruder Friedrichs II., Heinrich von Preußen, in einem repräsentativen Arrangement, wie es Hyacinthe Rigaud, an dem sich Schmidt in Paris geschult hatte, auf vollendete Weise entwickelt hat. In vollem Ornament, mit dem Hohen Orden vom Schwarzen Adler versehen, 'thront' der Prinz unter einem weiten, im barocken Gestus pneumatisch aufwehenden Baldachinstoff. Das hinter ihm aufwirbelnde, in einer Dreiecksform auf seine Schulterpartie zulaufende Tuch bildet den Fond, vor dem der Kopf des Prinzen - wie in einem für sich bestehenden Porträt - freigestellt ist. Den herrschaftlichen-barocken Gestus relativierend sitzt Prinz Heinrich mit elegant überschlagenen Beinen da und wendet sich in einladender Gestik an den Betrachter. Trotz dieser beinahe familiär-intimen Situation verbleibt der Prinz aber dennoch in herrschaftlichen Unnahbarkeit, was durch den parallel zur Beinhaltung verlaufenden Paradedegen unterstrichen wird, der die ästhetische Grenze zum Betrachter hin markiert. Schmidt gelingt es, die ganz besondere Farbqualität eines van Loo in das Medium der Druckgrafik zu übersetzten. Zum einen, indem er die spezifischen Stoffqualitäten zur Erscheinung bringt - sei es der haptisch wirkende Fellbesatz oder die im Licht changierende Seide - und zum anderen durch die meisterhafte Taillierung der anschwellen und abschwellenden Kupferstichlineaturen, die der Darstellung eine innere Fluktuation verleihen, aus der sich die zugleich lebendige wie lebensnahe Wirkung des Porträtierten speist.

        Figures De La Bible, Conenues En Conq Cens Tableaux, Graves D'apres Les Desseins De Raphael, & Des Plus Grands Maitres, Accompagnes D'une Courte Explication Pour l'instruction De La Jeunesse

      Paris: G. Desprez. 1767. 4to (28 cm tall). H Hard Cover. Fair. A worn and incomplete copy of this collection of more than five hundred copper plate engravings of scenes from the Old and New Testaments. This copy contains 454 of the 500 half-page plates plus a full page frontis, title page vignette and quarter-page engraving at the beginning of the Discours Preliminaire - it is missing 46 of the 328 plates from the Old Testament and none from the New Testament. We are selling this as a collection of plates only, as there is quite a bit of damage to the text, with many ragged edges and large chips. The plates are in generally very good condition with some (perhaps ten or twelve) having chips in the margins rather close to the printed areas, but no damage to the printed areas themselves. All in all, the beginning of the book is in the worst condition, steadily improving through the end. The frontis engraving does have some spotting. The frontis engraving is by Cochin, the title page vignette by K. Audran; none of the other engravings are identified by maker. The illustrations are quite lively, often dramatic (such as with Jonah and the whale), and beautifully made. The full calf binding is still present and very worn, with the pages still barely attached to the binding and to each other. Unfortunate condition, but still a lovely collection of Biblical plates.

      PARIS: CHEZ PIERRE FRANC DIDOT LE JEUNE, 1767. In 16. Dim. 17x10,5 cm. Pp. (6)+X+(2)+227+(1)+(4)+X+(8)+228. Interessante raccolta di due opere di Theophile de Bordeu (1722-1776) medico alla Royal Infirmary a Versailles e della Contessa du Barry, grande amico di Diderot. La prima è l'edizione originale di quella che è considerata una delle più importanti opere nel campo della storia cellulare. Beuret descrive tessuti connettivi sotto il nome di tessuto mucoso mostrando il loro ruolo negli scambi, nel fenomeno della nutrizione ed equilibrio meccanico degli organi e tessuti. L'opera segue le sue prime ricerche sulle malattie croniche (1775) nelle quali espose l'idea di secrezione interna con l'ipotesi che ogni organo, tessuto e cellula scarica nel sangue prodotti che influenzano altre parti del corpo. La seconda è uno studio minore, l'influenza delle acque di Bareges e del mercurio nei tumori ghiandolari. Collazionato e completo. Raro, solo tre copie censite su ICCU. In discrete condizioni. Copertina in piena pelle coeva a cinque nervi con titolo e decorazioni in oro al dorso in discrete condizioni generali con usure e parti mancanti ai margini e dorso. Legatura in discrete condizioni con qualche rottura. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture. Gora d'umidità al margine inferiore. Interesting collection of two works by Theophile de Bordeu (1722-1776) physician at Royal Infirmary in Versailles and of Contessa du Barry, great friend of Diderot. The first one is the original edition of one of the most important work in the field of cell history. Beuret describes connective tissues under the name of mucous tissue showing its role in exchanges, phenomena of nutrition and mechanical balance of organs and tissues. The work follows his earlier researches about chronical deseases (1775) in which shows the idea of internal secretion with the hypothesis that each organ, tissue and cell discharges in blood products that influence other parts of the body. The second one is a lesser study, the influence of waters of Bareges and mercury in gland cancer. Collationed and complete. Scarce, only three copy in ICCU. In fair conditions. Full leather coeval cover with five nerfs and golden title and decorations in the spine in fair general conditions with wearings and missing parts in the edges and spine. Binding in fair conditions with some cracks. Inside pages are in good conditions with foxings. Humidity stain in the lower edge.

S. Jörans gille wid Kopparberget". Adolf Ludvig Stjerneld (1755-1835) var en av ledarna för oppositionen mot Gustav III i slutet av 1780-talet och försökte bl.a. vinna ryskt stöd för att inskränka kungamakten i Sverige. Kungen fick kunskap om planerna och Stjerneld arresterades tillsammans med andra oppositionsmän. Han släpptes dock ett år senare och vann ny gunst vid hovet. 1821 blev han invald i Vitterhetsakademien och ihopbragte på sin ålders höst en diger samling manuskript, böcker och porträtt på Gripsholms slott där han var ståthållare sedan 1822. Han var en nydanare av slottets porträttgalleri och utvidgade samlingen så att den inte bara innehöll kungligheter, utan även andra bemärkta svenska män och kvinnor. Hans son skänkte en stor del av de privata samlingarna till Uppsala universitetsbibliotek och Linköpings stiftsbibliotek
