William HERBERT (1718 – 1795).
Copper engraving with modern outline colour colour (Very Good, hardly noticeable age-toned with strong engraving impression and wide blank margins, with modern colour but tastefully executed; just a small area of restoration without loss in upper centre blank margin), 63 x 49 cm (24.8 x 19.3 inches). - London, 1767. Extremely Rare – the second state of the William Herbert’s chart of the Malacca-Singapore navigation, the first broadly accurate British sea chart of Asia’s busiest shipping lane, marking a milestone in the revival of hydrography sponsored by the East India Company, and a key chart used during the ascendency of British economic and political power in Southeast Asia and the Far East. William Herbert’s chart of the Malacca-Singapore navigation is perhaps the rarest of all the seminal sea charts focussing on Asia’s busiest shipping lane, and tends to be missing from even the finest map collections of the region. Importantly, it is a key work in the revival of hydrography sponsored by the British East India Company (EIC), being the first British printed chart to feature a broadly accurate and practically useful depiction of the passage through the Singapore Strait. The chart is a manifestation of Britain’s recent large-scale commercial expansion into Southeast Asia and the Far East, and features fresh details supplied by the crews of named British ships. The chart, present here in the first state (of 3), initially appeared within the third edition of Herbert’s The New Directory of the East Indies (1767), an incredibly rare atlas of … [Click Below for Full Description]

LAURENS, HENRY-JOSEPH du? - or CHARLES-CLAUDE-FLORENT du CAMPIGNEULLES? - MIMICING VOLTAIRE] - [CANDIDE IN DENMARK - WITH A SATIRE ON ROUSSEU]
- Geneve, 1767. Original blue cardboard binding with contemporary handwritten paper title-label to spine. Pencil-numbering to inside of boards. A very nice and clean copy. Woodcut vignette to title-page. With the ex-libris of the notes Danish book collector K.F. Plesner to inside of front board. Rare first edition of this interesting, anonymously written continuation of Voltaire's Candide, which wraps up the adventures of the hero. "Turning his back on both Voltarian satire and scepticism, the novelist proposes a moralistic fable - the focal point of which is a rehabilitation of Leibniz's Theory of Optimism. The main body of the novel tells the story of Candide and his new wife, the noble Zénoïde, in their sumptuous Copenhagen townhouse. Before achieving this happy state, however, the couple endures various trials and tribulations reminiscent of the newly minted gothic genre. "Candide au Dannemarc" also features a satirical portrait of Jean-Jacques Rousseau." (Éduard M. Langille, from the introduction to the new edition of "Candide au Dannemarc", edited by him). Voltaire's "Candide" had inspired a sequel that appeared in 1760, which is attributed to Charles-Claude-Florent de Campigneulles, but which might be by Henri-Joseph du Laurens. The present work is a direct continuation of that sequel (although it ignores the happy ending of the previous work), but evidently from the preface, it is not written by the same author. It has still not been determined who the actual author is.The part on Rousseau (pp. 148-167) in the present work has become quite famous, portraying him sat … [Click Below for Full Description]

[FORTH AND CLYDE CANAL]
Edinburgh, April 11, 1767. 4to., caption title, 21 + (1)pp., well bound in the mid-20th century in yellow cloth boards, the spine lettered in black. A very good copy. First edition. Although the first Act of Parliament relating to this canal received the Royal Assent in March 1768, there followed some twenty years of erratic progress interspersed with complete inertia, largely through lack of funds. According to Joseph Priestley (An historical account,> 1831), the key to unlocking the problem was some creativity, in which 'the Barons of the Court of Exchequer in Scotland, are, out of the money arising from the sale of forfeited estates, directed to lend the Forth and Clyde Navigation Company the sum of £50,000, by which they were enabled to resume their labours, under the direction of Mr. Robert Whitworth, an engineer possessing a well earned reputation'. The canal had been originally designed by John Smeaton and the geologist James Hutton had also been involved between ca. 1767 and 1774. The construction work was finally completed in July 1790. The canal was also used for passenger traffic, passenger boats running on the canal from as early as 1783, and the canal was also used between 1789 and 1803 for trials of William Symington's steamboats. The present anonymous letter supports the construction of a 'large canal' rather than a 'small canal', and gives reasons why any navigation should pass through, but not end at, Glasgow.

According to Joseph Priestley (An historical account,> 1831), the key to unlocking the problem was some creativity, in which 'the Barons of the Court of Exchequer in Scotland, are, out of the money arising from the sale of forfeited estates, directed to lend the Forth and Clyde Navigation Company the sum of £50,000, by which they were enabled to resume their labours, under the direction of Mr. Robert Whitworth, an engineer possessing a well earned reputation'. The canal had been originally designed by John Smeaton and the geologist James Hutton had also been involved between ca. 1767 and 1774. The construction work was finally completed in July 1790. The canal was also used for passenger traffic, passenger boats running on the canal from as early as 1783, and the canal was also used between 1789 and 1803 for trials of William Symington's steamboats. The present anonymous letter supports the construction of a 'large canal' rather than a 'small canal', and gives reasons why any navigation should pass through, but not end at, Glasgow.

Fielding, Henry
Martin & Wotherspoon, Edinburgh 1767 - 12 vols., 12mo, pp. xlvi, 257, [3] + frontispiece portrait; 332, [4]; 339 (recte 327), [1]; 360; [xii], 331, [1]; [xii], xi, [i], 359, [1]; xi, [xiii], 360; [xii], 390; [ii], 346; vi, [vi], 336; 395, [1]; 348. Contemporary polished calf, boards bordered with a double gilt rule, spines divided by raised bands, green and red morocco labels, other compartments filled with gilt rules in a diaper pattern. Poor-quality paper toned and spotted, some soiling. Somewhat rubbed, several headcaps worn, a bit of creasing to spines, lower joint of vol. 8 cracking. The scarce first Edinburgh edition (it was at least partially reprinted in 1771) of Fielding's works, both dramatic and prose - which had been first collected in 1762 in four quarto volumes and shortly afterword reprinted as 8 octavos; the third edition of 1766 was the first as 12 duodecimos, and that is the version reprinted here. Gilbert Martin is better known for his work as the Apollo Press, under which guise he printed Bell's British Poets and his press acquired a reputation as 'the most elegant, jemmy printing office in this Place' (George Paton, quot. in Most Disreputable Trade, p. 130). But that work followed the death of his earlier partner John Wotherspoon in 1776, and Martin's typographical standards clearly increased when he set out on his own - this set, though printed in an unusual, slightly wide letter with high stroke contrast, does not evince the highest quality of presswork.

SMITH, Adam.
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 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 previousl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venice: Carlo Palese, 1767. Duodecimo (161 x 94 mm). Uncut in contemporary carta rustica, manuscript paper spine label. 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. Printer's device on title. 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 A … [Click Below for Full Description]
