        THE JOURNAL OF A TWO MONTHS TOUR; WITH A VIEW OF PROMOTING RELIGION AMONG THE FRONTIER INHABITANTS OF PENSYLVANIA [sic], AND OF INTRODUCING CHRISTIANITY AMONG THE INDIANS TO THE WESTWARD OF THE ALEGH-GENY MOUNTAINS

      London. 1768.. 110pp. plus one leaf of ads. Late 19th-century three-quarter gilt morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Boards rubbed and worn at edges. Pages lightly soiled and tanned. A very good copy, untrimmed. The rare first edition, "quite difficult to procure complete" (Field). The Irish-born missionary was one of the most popular preachers of his day, travelling extensively in Europe as well as America. In 1760 he was sent with Duffield to observe and investigate the condition of the Indian tribes. This account, one of only a few pieces by Beatty ever to see publication, includes "the first account of Indian towns in southeast Ohio" (Howes), interviews with Indian chiefs, and encounters with Delaware Indians, whom Beatty conjectures to be descended from the Ten Tribes. "The tour of this zealous and intelligent observer to the Indian towns in Pennsylvania and Ohio, lying far beyond the frontiers, was made at a period of great interest in their history. The warriors of the Delaware and Shawnese had ravaged them with the tomahawk and firebrand for twenty years, and the Journal of the missionary is filled with notes of their awful massacres. It is very full and minute in its details of interviews with Indian chiefs, and the various phases of aboriginal life which attracted his attention" - Field. HOWES B281, "b." VAIL 589. THOMSON 72. FIELD 102. BELL B125. JCB I:1607. WINSOR I, pp.110, 116. SABIN 4149. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 324.

This was the first edition to be published after the death of Collins (1681/2–1760); the first edition had been published in 1709. Later editions benefited from the earlier work of Sir William Dugdale, whose Baronage of England had been published in 1675. At some stage, Collins also acquired a manuscript of Dugdale's work, which had been owned by Gregory King, Lancaster herald, with his own notes. Collins' work became the basis for Sir Egerton Brydges' edition of the peerage published in 1812; and finally, of course, for Cockayne's "monumental" Complete Peerage (1887 - 1898).

        A Map of North America, from the Latest Surveys and Maps by John Blair LLD & FRS,

      London 1768 - First Edition, a copper engraved map of North America engraved by Thomas Kitchin , late colouring, a single sheet measuring 415mm by 570mm, with copperplate mark and margins measuring 468mm by 630mm, with good quality 6 line and wash border mount, overall measurement 580mm by 720mm, With fold marks as usual but in very good condition. This large detailed map was printed when Britain still held the thirteen American colonies prior to the American War of Independence. It is an important map of British North America showing the eastern territories. It maps Indian tribes, rivers, cities, towns and non existent islands on Lake Superior. John Blair, died 1782, Church of England Clergyman and Chronologist, was descended from the Blairs of Balthayock, Perthshire Scotland. He was born and educated in Edinburgh, where he trained for a career in the Church of Scotland along with Hugh Blair, Alexander Carlyle, John Home, William Robertson, and other young men who would become well known for their association with the Scottish Enlightenment. He visited London with a patrimony of several hundred pounds and remained in London for the rest of his life. In the early 1750's Blair issued proposals for printing by subscription the "General Chronology and History of the World" which was published in the summer of 1754. The book quickly became the standard work of its kind and was frequently reprinted throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. To the 1768 edition Blair added a set of fourteen large elegant engraved maps and "A Dissertation on the Rise and Progress of Geography". This series of fourteen maps were the only maps he ever published. A French translation of the Chronology and History of the World appeared in Paris in 1797 and there were several American editions in the 1820's. A London edition was published as late as 1904. The success of Blair's work led to the author's election as a Fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1755. In 1761 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Antiquaries.

        TERRA AUSTRALIS COGNITA: OR, VOYAGES TO THE TERRA AUSTRALIS, OR SOUTHERNHEMISPHERE, DURING THE SIXTEENTH, SEVENTEENTH, AND EIGHTEENTHCENTURIES.WITH A PREFACE BY THE EDITOR, IN WHICH SOME GEOGRAPHICAL,NAUTICAL, AND COMMERCIAL QUESTIONS ARE DISCUSSED.

      Edinburgh: Printed by A. Donaldson, 1766 - 1768. - Three volumes: vi,2,viii,516; [4],692; [2],iv,745pp., plus three folding frontispiece maps. Contemporary calf, ruled in gilt, sympathetically rebacked in matching calf, spines tooled in gilt, gilt leather labels. General chart of the southern hemisphere with a closed split along one fold. Scattered light foxing. Very good. With the bookplate of Sir Thomas Munro, first baronet and an administrator in India who held important financial and judicial posts, and was eventually made governor of Madras. An important early collection of texts on the discovery, exploration, natural history, geography and commerce of Australia. Callander's work takes as its basis that of Comte de Brosses, published ten years earlier, but supplemented by additional material and by Callander's editorial notes. Callander saw Australia as a fertile land for colonization and settlement, and argued that Great Britain, because of her naval dominance, was destined to rule there. He proposed a penal settlement as a base for colonization and further exploration. The work contains many important narratives (some of them included in whole, others in part), including those of Magellan, Drake, Dampier, Tasman, Quiros, Gamboa, Ulloa, Narbrough, Frezier, Anson, and others. The maps include a chart of the Straits of Magellan, another of the southern hemisphere, and a third showing Australia. "A work of great Australian importance, containing forty-one relations of voyages, some for the first time in English.the Callander map is of great interest, particularly when compared with the Tasman map of 1644. Although Van Dieman's Land is still shown as part of the mainland, New Zealand and New Guinea are already known to be separate lands, and in fact the outline of Australia is complete except for the eastern coast, yet to be charted by Cook" - Davidson. "Valuable both for its narratives and for its editorial comments" - Hill. The first volume in this set contains a dedication to Charles Townshend, Chancellor of the Exchequer; the third volume a dedication to Sir Laurence Dundas. HILL 240. DAVIDSON, p.35.

"His enthusiasm had been roused by the fragments of Gaelic poetry published by Macpherson in 1760. He did his best to believe in their authenticity and found himself in rather uncongenial alliance with Hume, whose skepticism was for once quenched by his patriotism. Gray's interest probably led him to his imitations from the Norse and Welsh. In 1767 Dodsley proposed to republish his poems in a cheap form. Foulis, a Glasgow publisher, made a similar proposal through Beattie at the same time. Dodsley's edition appeared in July 1768, and Foulis's in the following September. Both contained the same poems, including the Fatal Sisters, the Descent of Odin, and the Triumphs of Owen, then first published. Gray took no money, but accepted a present of books from Foulis."

        Journal d'un Voyage à la Louisiane fait en 1720. Par M***, Capitaine de Vaisseau du Roi

      Chez Muiser, Fils, & Fournier, The Hague, 'et se trouve à Paris' 1768 - Contemporary sheep-backed figured paper-covered boards, spine in six compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by double gilt fillets, lettering-piece in the second compartment A fine copy of the first edition of one of the rarest early publications about Louisiana. The author of this work, De Vallette-Laudun, was the commander of the Toulouse , and led the French government-backed scientific expedition of 1720 to Louisiana, the French West Indies and Gulf of Mexico. It resulted in the first detailed survey of Louisiana, just three years after the founding of New Orleans, at the height of enthusiasm over John Law's Mississippi Company. The present epistolary narrative contains 132 letters addressed to an unnamed lady, which together provide a vivid picture of the expedition and include interesting details concerning Santo Domingo, Cuba and the French settlements in Louisiana and the Mississippi valley. This is one of the rarest early works on Louisiana: just five copies are located by the Catalogue Collectif de France, and only two copies are listed as having sold at auction in France in the past fifty years. We could locate only the Littell copy selling at auction in the U.S. (Parke-Bernet, 1945). The present copy (like the Littell copy) is without the two final leaves (the 'approbation censoriale' and the 'privilège'); the catalogue of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France notes that these leaves are "absents de certains exemplaires, ont dû être ajoutés après". Bell V14; Clark I:164; Howes V12; Sabin 98393. (6 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches). [1]-8, 1-316 pp. Half-title. (Without the two final leaves giving the 'approbation censoriale' and the 'privilège' issued later [see below]). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First edition of this beautiful work on the Flora of Switzerland, in which Haller describes more than 2486 species of which many new. Haller was a student of Boerhaave and informs his readers as follows: 'I described all the plants that I had collected, from their natural characters, as Boerhaave had taught us to do at Leiden'. "As a result of his continuous travelling Haller acquired an intimate knowledge of the flora of the Alps, a knowledge which profoundly influenced his biological outlook. . In his great Swiss flora of 1768 he draws the parallel between the altitudinal zonation of the plants in the Alps and the zonation from north to south in the holarctic flora region" (Stafleu. Linnaeus and the Linnaeans p. 247). The work extensively describes the orchid alpine flora and 23 of the beautifully engraved plates are devoted to this subject.

        12 Volumes] THE WORKS OF JONATHAN SWIFT, D.D. DEAN OF ST. PATRICK';S, DUBLIN, ACCURATELY REVISED IN SIX VOLUMES. ADORNED WITH COPPER PLATES; WITH SOME ACCOUNT OF THE AUTHOR';S LIFE, AND NOTES HISTORICAL AND EXPLANATORY BY JOHN HAWKESWORTH [8 Volumes, with] LETTERS, WRITTEN BY THE LATE JONATHAN SWIFT. FROM THE YEAR 1703 TO 1740 [4 Volumes]

      Published and printed variously by C. Bathurst, C. Davis, C. Hitch and L. Hawes, J. Hodges, R. and J. Dodsley, W. Bowyer, L. Davis C. Reymers, W. Johnston, T. Davies, R. Davis, H. Woodfall, W. Strahan, J. Rivington, W. Owens, R. Baldwin, T. Longman, London 1768 - Quarto. Volume I: [2], 8, 43, xviii, 184, [2], viii, 4, 286; Volume II: [4], 231, [4], 176, (restarting at 157)-182; Volume III: [2], vi, iii, 38 [inserted half title] 39-191, [6], 253; Volume IV: [8], 318, [2], ii, 237; Volume V: [4], 258, [4], 144 (printer error in pagination skipping to) 153-232; Volume VI: [4] 210, [2], iii, 218; Volume VII: [lacking half title], iii-viii, 230, iv, 49, 58-221; Volume VIII: xxiii, 278, vii, 196, 195-279, publishers advertisement on verso; Volume X: xxxi, 288; Volume XI: [2], viii, 322; Volume XII: viii, 295; Volume XIII: viii, 320. This is the first of the important Hawkesworth editions, lacking Volume IX and the supplementary Volume XIV which were published in 1775 and 1779 respectively, the last of the volumes printed. Given the nearly 25-year span over which the printing took place it is remarkably difficult to find sets of this edition complete. Volumes I-VI (1755); VII (1763-4); VIII (1765); X-XI (1766); XII-XIII (1768); [lacking Volumes IX (1775) and XIV (1779)]. Full bound in contemporary mottled calf with morocco title and volume labels (through numbered I-XII) with some chipping and loss. 19th century rebacks to some volumes; more recently, damage to spines and boards have been repaired; though there is cracking and tenderness to some spines, they are now relatively stable. All volumes offered are from the First Quarto Edition except the Letters X & XI which appear to be a reprint dated the same year as the First Edition. Volume X states "New Edition," and both X & XI have a variant collation from what Teerink suggests; both appear complete. All volumes complete but for Volume VII which is lacking a half title. All 26 full-page copperplate engravings plus 4 pages of Cantata are present as called for by Teerink. Notably, the same engravings were used for the octavo editions. Only the quarto edition has a large frame around the image to make it congruous to the page size. This copy belonged to Sir John Frederick, Baronet of Burwood House and bears his very tasteful engraved bookplate in most volumes. (Teerink 87). Very Good binding.

        A VIEW OF THE GREAT COHOES FALLS ON THE MOHAWK RIVER, THE FALL ABOUT SEVENTY FEET; THE RIVER NEAR A QUARTER MILE BROAD.

      London. . 1768 - Mezzotint engraving, 36 x 53 cm. A very good, clean impression. This handsome view of one of the most famous sights in colonial America was originally drawn by Governor Thomas Pownall, the enlightened British administrator who served in the American colonies in the 1750s and '60s. It was part of Pownall's larger project to create or commission a series of views in the British dominions in America from Quebec to the Caribbean, issued in parts in the 1760s and collectively in 1768 as SCENOGRAPHIA AMERICANA, with a total of twenty-eight plates. Only a few complete sets are known, and the plates generally appear singly, as here. This view was drawn by Pownall on one of his trips while governor of Pennsylvania and New York, probably about 1759. The Cohoes Falls on the Mohawk, now submerged beneath the water behind a dam, were a famous natural phenomenon in America, on the edge of what was then wilderness and before the more spectacular Niagara was reachable by anyone but fur traders. Pownall's view, taken from downstream looking up at the falls, captures the untamed wildness of the scene in a dramatic way. This, as are all of the SCENOGRAPHIA. views, is rare.

Plein Maroquin citron d'époque. Dos lisse orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin vert. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches dorées. Bel exemplaire. Mors supérieur légèrement frotté. L'arretin est composé de 25 essais et récits sur des sujets aussi divers que Les nègres, L'agriculture, La chasteté ou le célibat, Histoire de maître Pierre, ect. Ce sont tous des critiques violentes, parfois directes, parfois satyriques ou allégoriques, de l'enseignement de la Bible, de l'église, et de son histoire. L'abbé Du Laurens (1719-1793) est un écrivain polémiste et anti-religieux dont tous les ouvrages sont libertins et licencieux, mais surtout, profondément anti- religieux. L'auteur n'hésite pas à descendre dans les plus basses trivialités pour appuyer sa critique, mais ses inventions comiques, souvent étonnantes, lui ont valu des éloges. Poursuivi pour ses livres, il se réfugia en Hollande, puis fut emprisonné à Mayence en 1767, pour finir ses jours à 74 ans dans un couvent. 'Ce livre est une critique vive et assez gaillarde des principales histoires de la Bible. L'epouse de Suze est une critique de La nouvelle Heloïse. Le sage Pangloss est Salomon, le plus sage des hommes, c'est un chapitre originale, même par ses singulières citations bibliques. L'histoire de Suzon est celle de Suzanne et des deux vieillards, l'histoire de Godemiché. L'origine de ces instruments de chamois ou de velours devenus si communs dans les maisons de religieuses. Enfin les Couvens de Jésuites sont une allégorie de l'histoire de Sodome. En un mot, le volume tout entier est plutôt une critique facétieuse de la Bible et des institutions cléricales qu'un livre simplement gaillard'.

Le président HÉNAULT (1685-1770), historien français et conseiller au Parlement de Paris, doit sa notoriété à cet ouvrage, paru pour la première fois en 1744, réédité cinq fois de son vivant et constamment utilisé jusqu'au milieu du XIXe siècle. Présenté par son auteur comme le résumé des conférences tenues chez lui ou chez d'Ormesson par d'éminents historiens : Foncemagne, Secousse, d'Aguesseau, dom Bouquet, etc., et élaboré pour son usage personnel l'«Abrégé de l'histoire de France » vaut par sa précision, mais son succès tient surtout à l'esprit qui l'animait ; Hénault voulait « qu'on lût son ouvrage avec des yeux philosophiques ». C'est qu'il ne faisait plus intervenir dans l'histoire la providence divine mais seulement les passions humaines ainsi que les causes matérielles et économiques. Voltaire a écrit : « Hénault a été dans l'histoire ce que Fontenelle a été dans la philosophie : il l'a rendue familière ». (« Beau livre », COHEN, 265 - « Bonne édition d'un ouvrage justement estimé », BRUNET, III, 95 - MAHERAULT, 19). BEL EXEMPLAIRE. FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.
