        ORDONNANCE CONCERNANT LES LEGS PIES & LES LIBERTES ACCORDEES PAR TESTAMENT [caption title].

      [Martinique 1767]. - 6pp. Small quarto. Gathered signatures. Minor dampstaining to inner margin. Very good. In a clamshell box. A very rare and early imprint from the island of Martinique regarding the handling of slaves to be freed after the death of their owners. These ordinances outline the protocol for executors of wills to follow pertaining to slaves. Heirs of these estates were blatantly ignoring this area of the testaments which the author of this text clearly abhors, classifying them as "driven by their own greed." The orders declare that all who wish to retain freed slaves must submit their request, along with the deceased's will, to the government for review and those who ignore this decree will be fined £500. The ordinances were to be printed and posted in every parish on the island. The first recorded printing on the island is by Bradford Swan in 1784, but we have handled several imprints from the 1760s, and have seen in commerce an imprint from as early as 1762. This is, therefore, among the earliest Caribbean imprints this firm has handled. As with virtually everything to do with early Caribbean imprints, the story of printing on Martinique remains shrouded in mystery. Rare, and evidently unrecorded.

        [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. 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'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's Patent, as dpeicted on the map. This map and the accompanying manuscript documents were found among William Ellery's papers, and were part of Ellery and his brother Benjamin's attempts to claim lands in Maine that they believed belonged to their family. "Leverett'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'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's claims to the land. Significant manuscript maps of this early date are virtually unknown in the market.

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 History of Astronomy, with its application to Geography, History and Chronology; occasionally exemplified by the Globes

      J. Lister for J. Newbery, London 1767 - Costard, George (1710-82). The history of astronomy, with its application to geography, history, and chronology; occasionally exemplified by the globes. 4to. viii, [2, errata], ix-xvi, 308pp. Engraved plate (printed on both sides); woodcut text diagrams. Cancel slips pasted over diagrams on pp. 222 and 223. London: James Lister for J. Newbery, 1767. 260 x 207 mm. Calf ca. 1767, rebacked, light rubbing. Occasional foxing but very good. First Edition. Costard, the vicar of Twickenham, appears to have been the first English historian of astronomy, publishing books on the subject in 1746 and 1748 (A Letter to Martin Folkes, Esq., President of the Royal Society, Concerning the Rise and Progress of Astronomy Amongst the Ancients and A Further Account of the Rise and Progress of Astronomy Amongst the Ancients, in Three Letters to Martin Folkes . . .), as well as the present work. Costard’s knowledge of Hebrew, Arabic, Latin, Greek and other ancient languages gave him "unparalleled access to the astronomical literature of classical and early modern eras" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). He concluded that the ancient Greeks were the true founders of astronomy, having applied geometry to the study of the stars; the Egyptians and Babylonians, by contrast, were mere observers.

        DE RE MILITARI LIBRI QUINQUE cum selectis notis Godeschalci Stewechii, et Petri Scriverii, nec non ad Codicum Manuscriptorum fidem notis perpetuis criticis emendati, addita versione gallica, cura M Nicolai Schwebelii

      Norimbergae, apud Gabrielem Nicolaum Raspe, 1767.. 1767, Latin text followed by French translation, edited by Nicolai Schwebelii. 4to, approximately 255 x 195 mm, 10 x 7¾ inches, in 2 parts with separate register and pagination, the second part, with its own title page, containing the French translation (by C. G. Bourdon de Sigrais). Engraved frontispiece to Latin book, engraved vignette to each title page, engraved pictorial headpiece to each of the 5 Latin books, 2 folding plates, pages: (28), 176, (12) - indexes and errata; xviii, 90, at the end of the preliminary pages before the first page of the Latin text is an unsigned leaf with the Elenchus or contents of the five books which is sometimes found erroneously at the end of the Latin book, obviously an afterthought missing from some copies. Otherwise our copy collates exactly to a copy in ICCU. A digitised copy on the European Cultural Heritage Online site has the Elenchus bound in the middle of the index despite a leaf printed in German directing the binder to place it before page 1. Bound in modern quarter morocco over marbled sides, all edges red, new marbled endpapers. Occasional light foxing, second title page age-browned, some pale age-browning and light foxing throughout, small pale damp stain to a few upper margins, name of Dr Georg Wolfgang Augustin Fikenscher with date of 1797 on title page, in old ink, a German academic from Bayreuth, binding tight and firm. A very good copy. Vegetius a Roman writer about whom very little is known wrote his classic work originally called Epitoma Rei Militaris in the fifth century. The material, on military matters, is chiefly borrowed from earlier authorities and Vegetius is the only extant source for much that his work contains. It was first published in Utrecht in 1475 and was frequently reprinted and translated into modern languages. The work is divided into 5 books: 1. On the levying and training of recruits; 2. On the legion, its organisation, rank of officers and men, and their arms; 3. On tactics, the last chapter of this book consisting of thirty-two maxims of war; 4. On fortification and the attack and defence of places; on machines of war; 5. On the navy. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Della ricerca della verità. Prima edizione italiana con l'aggiunta dell'elogio dell'autore di M. di Fontenelle.

      appresso Pietro Savioni 1767 In - 4° (cm. 25,6), legatura coeva in cartonato alla rustica con nervi passanti e titolo ms. al dorso; pp. CIV 303 [1b] in ottimo stato, fresche e marginose; frontespizio in rosso e nero con grande vignetta incisa in rame (Zuliani), capolettera e testate in silografia; sporadici segni e tratto d'inchiostro al frontespizio. Rarissima prima traduzione del capolavoro di Malebranche curata da Luigi Pallazzolo, lucido estimatore del pensiero occasionalista. Rimase interrotta al pur corposo volume primo - il solo pubblicato come testimoniano i cataloghi commerciali del Savioni di molto successivi - e l'unica fino alla pavese di Bizzoni (1818). «Uno dei maggiori libri del pensiero moderno» [Garin Eugenio. Introduzione a La ricerca della verità. Laterza 1983, p.IX], libro molto combattuto che lo stesso Malebranche aveva perfezionato maniacalmente nelle sue edizioni d'Oltralpe dal 1674 alla definitiva del 1712. Questa è la primissima pubblicazione del filosofo francese in un'Italia che non lo capiva e lo tacciava d'irreligione ed empietà, così come «nei secoli di barbarie i filosofi si accusavano di magia» [p.LVI]. Ottimo esemplare.

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

      Londres, 1767. 7" x 4". "Memoires de Maximilien de Bethune, Duc de Sully, Principal Ministre de Henri le Grand;... Nouvelle Edition... (Londres, 1767). Vol. 7, 12mo, vi, 483 pp., bound in contemporary French mottled calf gilt, morocco spine labels. Singed with his ownership initial, ""T"" beside the printed binder's signature mark (""I"") at the bottom of page 187 and again on page 427 where Jefferson adds an ""I"" to the signature mark ""T"" (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 lightly worn, small loss to top of spine, 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. Provenance: Thomas Jefferson; Thomas Jefferson Randolph; Sarah N. Randolph; William Randolph Hearst sold at auction; Hammer Galleries, Gimbel Bros. Feb 1941 p. 226 item 750, purchased by: Dr. Alice Watson 1941 by descent to an Heir of Dr. Watson. "

        The History of Astronomy, with its application to Geography, History and Chronology; occasionally exemplified by the Globes

      London: J. Lister for J. Newbery, 1767. Costard, George (1710-82). The history of astronomy, with its application to geography, history, and chronology; occasionally exemplified by the globes. 4to. viii, [2, errata], ix-xvi, 308pp. Engraved plate (printed on both sides); woodcut text diagrams. Cancel slips pasted over diagrams on pp. 222 and 223. London: James Lister for J. Newbery, 1767. 260 x 207 mm. Calf ca. 1767, rebacked, light rubbing. Occasional foxing but very good. First Edition. Costard, the vicar of Twickenham, appears to have been the first English historian of astronomy, publishing books on the subject in 1746 and 1748 (A Letter to Martin Folkes, Esq., President of the Royal Society, Concerning the Rise and Progress of Astronomy Amongst the Ancients and A Further Account of the Rise and Progress of Astronomy Amongst the Ancients, in Three Letters to Martin Folkes . . .), as well as the present work. Costard?s knowledge of Hebrew, Arabic, Latin, Greek and other ancient languages gave him ?unparalleled access to the astronomical literature of classical and early modern eras? (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). He concluded that the ancient Greeks were the true founders of astronomy, having applied geometry to the study of the stars; the Egyptians and Babylonians, by contrast, were mere observers.

A few small stains throughout the 4 volumes, but overall a set in very good to fine condition. 4 volumes. ---- Second edition of this classic account of the Dominican Order in Portugal and its overseas empire during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It includes many transcriptions of primary sources such as documents, decrees, and inscriptions. Frey Luis de Cácegas (1540-1610), chronicler of the Dominicans in Portugal, began to gather the material for this work. At the request of the Dominicans, Frei Luis de Sousa took up the work after the death of Cácegas; the first volume was published in 1623, and two more in 1662 and 1678. The fourth volume, by Lucas de Santa Catherina, was first printed in 1733. It is rare to find all four volumes of the first edition together. A third edition appeared in 1866.The chronicle begins with a life of St. Dominic (1170-1221). It includes a description of the establishment of dozens of Dominican monasteries and convents in Portugal, and details of the lives of hundreds of monks and nuns of the Order. In volume II, 10 chapters deal with Dominicans in Africa (Loanda, Congo, Ethiopia, Guiné, Ceuta, Tangiers). In volume III, 39 chapters are on India (Goa, Chaul, Cochin, Solor). In the final volume, 11 chapters deal with India and the Far East (Siam, Malaca, Solor, other parts of Indonesia, and particularly Timor), and 5 more with Africa (the Monomotapa and Ethiopia). Near the end, 3 chapters are on Irish monasteries established in Portugal.Edgar Prestage comments in the @Encyclopedia Britannica (11th ed., 1911), "The Chronicle has the defect of most monastic writings, they relate for the most part only the good, and exaggerate it without scruple, and they admit all sorts of prodigies, so long as these tend to increase devotion. Their order and arrangement, however, are admirable, and the lucid, polished style, purity of diction, and simple, vivid descriptions, entitle Frei Luís de Sousa to rank as a great prose-writer. His metaphors are well chosen, and he employs on appropriate occasions familiar terms and locutions, and makes full use of those charming diminutives in which the Portuguese language is rich. His prose is characterized by elegance, sweetness and strength, and is remarkably free from the affectations and false rhetoric that characterized the age" (XXV, 462).Frei Luis de Sousa (1555-1632) was born Manuel de Sousa Coutinho, a descendant of the second Conde de Marialva. When he was about to become a Knight of Malta he was captured by the Moors. While in Algiers he may have met Cervantes, who mentioned him in @Los Trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda. Back in Portugal, he made a name as an unbending patriot when he burned down his own home in Almada rather than receive the Spanish governor of Portugal as a guest. Perhaps because of this forthright attitude, he is said to have gone to Panama to seek his fortune. By 1613 he was back in Portugal, where he and his wife both entered a convent. (Almeida Garrett wrote a romanticized version involving the return of the wife's long-lost husband.) Frei Luis was asked to continue Cácegas's work on the Dominican chronicle, "a new kind of chronicle," as he promised in the preface to volume I. Bell noted that it has "lasting valu [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Reliure en demi basane brune mouchetée légèrement postérieure. Dos à nerfs orné de filets. Henri Charles de la Tremoille est le 4e duc de Thouars et duc de La Trémoille, bien qu'il mourut avant son père. Il commença sa carrière auprès de son oncle en Hollande, le prince d'Orange. En 1651, il s'opposa au Cardinal de Mazarin et soutint le prince de Condé durant la Fronde. Il sera arrêté et incarcéré à Amiens en 1656. Ces mémoires ne se contentent pas d'être uniquement la relation des événement de la Fronde, elles sont aussi le portrait politique de la haute noblesse se mettant elle-même en scène, puisqu'il s'agit d'un écrit autobiographique (dont l'original par ailleurs est détenu par la bibliothèque Nationale). Le père Griffet, responsable de l'édition de 1767 aurait sciemment édité ces mémoires pour éviter le retour en grâce des La tremoille. Ce que propose le duc de la Tremoille à ses enfants, puisqu'il annonce lui-même écrire essentiellement pour eux, c'est un exemple de vie ; adressé à ses contemporains, c'est un message politique.
