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

      London, A.Millar , 1767 Kress 6496. Goldsmith 10384. Vanderblue p.38. Mossner, The Correspondence of Adam Smith, pp.122. Ross, Life of Adam Smith, pp.89-90 [on Dissertation...Languages] The third edition of Adam Smith?s first published work [first edition 1759]. Adam Smith devoted the years 1755 to 1759 mainly to writing and publishing The Theory of Moral Sentiments. He had been appointed Professor of Logic at Glasgow in 1751 and elected Professor of Moral Philosophy a year later. It was this period at Glasgow College which Adam Smith was later to describe as "the period of thirteen years which I spent as a member of that society I remember as by far the most useful, and, therefore, as by far the happiest and most honourable period of my life". It has been said that if the Wealth of Nations had never been written, this work would have earned him a prominent place in intellectual history. Sensitive, original, erudite, eloquent ?" it reveals the full stature of Adam Smith?s genius and insight into his tastes and personality. The book immediately established a reputation for him in learned circles well beyond the bounds of his own university. It secured for him an international reputation as a philosopher.Adam Smith wrote to his publisher William Strahan The Dissertation upon the Origin of Languages is to be printed at the end of the Theory. There are some literal errors in the printed copy of it which I should have been glad to have corrected, but have not the opportunity, as I have no copy by me. They are of no great consequence. In the titles, both of the Theory and the Dissertation, call me simply Adam Smith without any addition either before or behind.The Dissertation was first published in The Philological Miscellany in 1761 and in all subsequent editions of The Theory of Moral Sentiments.

Bordeu was the principal representative of 18th century French clinical medicine, and played a great role in the history of medical theories. "He held that the organs of the body, with their several functions are federated with and dependent upon each other... Bordeu first stated the doctrine that not only each gland, but each organ of the body, is the workshop of a specific substance or secretion, which passes into the blood, and upon these the integration of the body as a whole

        Autograph Notice forbidding hunting on the lands of 15 subscribers, headed "Advertisement" and likely intended for publication in a local newspaper

      N.p. [Colonial America], 1767. 1 vols. 8-1/4 x 6-1/2 inches. Some stains, old folds, some cracking, but all present, and attractive overall. An Early American Manuscript Posting Announcement An intriguing document, written in various hands on fine laid paper on which appears to be a French watermark of an elaborate cartouche over the words "V. Guerevin". It is titled "Advertisement" and reads: "This is to Give notes to all Persons that we the subscribers do forworn all Persons from hunting with Gun or Dogs on our Lands / August ye 6th 1767" Below this are the signatures of 15 individuals, four of whom, unable to sign, have made their mark on the document under their name. Among the legible names are those of Laurence Riley, William Abbott Lener, Thomas Dutten, Richard Von Cade, James Reed, Edward Stevenson, John Jouller [?], John Abbott, Dennis Morris, Jacob Morris, Mary Morris, Woolma Donovan, Foster Donovan.Although there is no indication of where this document originated, we believe it to have been in the American Colonies--possibly, in view of the names, in the area around New York. While the posting of individual property was, and is, commonplace, it is highly unusual to find a group doing so collectively, and this would most likely happen if each of the holdings was relatively small. The nature of the notice suggests that the properties were contiguous, and were probably farmland. In the England of the day, the number of small, independent farmers owning contiguous property was not large--small farmers usually worked as tenants to a large landowner, who typically enjoyed hunting and shooting over his estates. In addition, it was far more common in America than in England for members of the same family to have land adjacent or in proximity to one another, as may have been the case above with the Morrises and Donovans. Small farmers were the backbone of Colonial America, and this document is a tribute to their spirit of enterprise and independence, which was soon to come to fruition in another form.A UNIQUE AND FASCINATING DOCUMENT, AND A RARE ITEM OF COLONIAL AMERICANA.

Attributed to Marc Antoine Eidous, the present "rather precise" French translation (Wagner) was made from the 1759 English version of the text. Venegas's name is nowhere mentioned, and the translation omits Appendices 6 and 7, De Lisle's Mémoire, and the account of the voyage of Admiral Fonte. The map of California reproduces the frontispiece map of the original edition, without the ten decorative border vignettes of the original.

        Anno Regni Georgii III. Magnae Britanniae, Franciae, & Hiberniae

      1767. [BRITISH THEATER]. Great Britain. Anno Regni Georgii III. Regis Magnae Britanniae, Franciae, & Hiberniae, Septimo [-Vicesimo Septimo] ... 12 pamphlets, various paginations. Folio, ca. 305 x 195 mm., printed in Roman and English black-letter. Disbound, housed in a full-cloth box with leather label on spine. London: Printed by Mark Baskett, [later Charles Eyre and William Strahan], 1767 [-1787].|~| |~||~||~||~||~| A collection of twelve scarce Parliamentary acts from the reign of George III, all of considerable interest to historians of British theater. This set is mainly concerned with the licensing and funding of provincial theaters, and contains early references to theaters in a number of towns and villages that were fairly remote from London at this time. Collections of this type, culled as it is from the vast print-run of eighteenth-century Parliamentary acts, would be nearly impossible to put together today. Contents of the collection: "An Act for extending the Royalty of the City if Edinburgh over certain adjoining Lands [...] and to enable His Majesty to grant Letters Patent for establishing a Theatre in the City of Edinburgh, or Suburbs thereof." 5ff. 1767. "An Act to enable his Majesty to license a Playhouse in the City of Bath." 2ff. 1768. "An Act for licensing a Playhouse within the City of Norwich." 2ff. 1768. "An Act for enabling his Majesty to license a Playhouse in the City of York; an in the Town and County of the Town of Kingston upon Hull." 2ff. 1769. "An Act to enable His Majesty to license a Playhouse in the Town of Liverpoole (sic), in the County Palatine of Lancaster." 2ff. 1771. "An Act for enabling His Majesty to license a Playhouse in the Town of Manchester, in the County Palatine of Lancaster." 2ff. 1775. "An Act for better securing a Fund, belonging to certain Persons of the Theatre Royal in Drury-lane, applicable to charitable Uses; and for other Purposes therein mentioned." 4ff. 1776. "An act for securing a Fund, belonging to certain persons of the Theatre Royal, Covent-garden, applicable to charitable Uses; and for other Purposes." 4ff. 1776. "An act to enable His Majesty to license a Theatre in the City of Chester." 2ff. 1777. "An Act to enable His Majesty to license a Theatre in the City of Bristol." 2ff. 1778.

        Catalogue systématique et raisonné des Curiosités de la Nature et de l'Art, qui composent le Cabinet de M. Davila, Avec figures en taille-douce (.).

      - Paris, Briasson, 1767. 3 volumes in-8, plein veau havane moucheté de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés de caissons fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin bordeaux et havane, filets sur les coupes, tranches rouges, xxxv, (1), 571 p.; vi, 656 p.; vi, 290, (6), 286, (1) p. et 30 planches gravées hors-texte. Remarquable catalogue de vente d'une des collections d'histoire naturelle les plus célèbres du XVIIIe siècle, illustré de 30 planches hors texte, dont 9 dépliantes par C. Bresse. Il concerne les coquillages (tome I), les minéraux (tome II) et les pétrifications (tome III). La rédaction est due à l'abbé Gua de Malves pour les coquillages, l'abbé Grimaud pour les bronzes et les médailles, Rémy pour les estampes et les dessins, Romé de l'Isle pour le reste. Pedro Franco Dávila (1711-1786), naturaliste équatorien, illustrateur spécialisé dans les invertébrés marins, les minéraux et les fossiles, avait passé près de vingt ans en France à édifier sa collection. Par la suite, il fonda, à l'initiative de Charles III, le "Real Gabinete de Historia Natural" de Madrid dont il devint directeur. La vente des objets contenus dans ce catalogue eut lieu à l'amiable et en bloc jusqu'au 25 octobre 1767, puis aux enchères en détail à partir du jeudi 12 novembre de la même année. Une grande partie de cette vente vint enrichir l'importante collection Montribloud, dispersée, elle, en 1784. Quelques rousseurs et petites traces de restaurations à la reliure. (Sinkankas, ‘Gemology Bibliography’, 1594. Nissen, ‘Die Botanische Buchillustration’, ZBI, 1050). Signature ex-libris à la plume de l’époque sur les titres: "Alph: Dr".

        Belisarius

      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:http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/32447170_rare-volume-from-thomas-jeffersonandrsquos-personalProvenance:1.

        Bélisaire

      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. A year after her death, her Turkish letters were published for the first time and they have not been out of print since.
