      London: Printed, and Sold by J. Almon, 1768. - 82pp. plus frontispiece bound in after titlepage. Quarto. Modern three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Very minor foxing and soiling. Very good. The only edition of this scarce defense of American liberties and freedoms, issued in the wake of the Townshend Acts. William Bollan was born in England but educated in America, where he built a successful law career in Boston. He served as the Massachusetts colonial agent in London from 1745 to 1762, when he was removed as a result of clashing political factions in the colony. Accused by some in the Bay Colony of being too subservient to the imperial center at the expense of the colonial periphery, Bollan spent much of his time after 1762 producing pamphlets on the brewing political crisis between the Crown and the colonies, always striving for reconciliation between the two. Bollan sees the Townshend Acts, which imposed revenue duties on the colonies for reasons other than direct defense, as evidence of political corruption in the British government, but not as reason enough to sever the ties between England and her colonies. He harkens back to the history of the Roman Empire, drawing comparisons to the current situation. The lovely plate, engraved by Bartolozzi, represents a British "Lady Liberty," with an olive branch in hand but with a shield close at hand. Not in Cohen, though he lists several other works by Bollan. A very scarce work on the market. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 68-2. HOWES B576, "aa." SABIN 6210. ESTC N1000.

        A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy by Mr. Yorick.

      London T. Becket and P.A. De Hondt 1768 - Two small octavo volumes. (ii), xx, 203; (iv), 208 pp. First edition, first issue. Bound with the rare advertisement leaf promising completion of the work the following year and including a list of subscribers. Also, a frontispiece portrait of Jens Baggesen, an eighteenth century Danish writer who was greatly influenced by Sterne, has been inserted at the beginning of volume I. The portrait was probably inserted by the Danish collector whose library this book came from. The provenance further includes Lord Gray, whose bookplate appears on the inside front cover of volume I. A Sentimental Journey is Sterne's best-known work apart from Tristram Shandy. Bound in contemporary marbled boards with calf spines, gilt in six compartments with red morocco titles. A very nice copy, with virtually no foxing. Housed in a morocco-backed, marbled slipcase labeled Baggeseniana in gilt on the spine, with the title "Yorick's Labyrint," a combination of Sterne's original title and the title of Baggesen's similar work, "The Labyrinth." A delightfully calculated obfuscation -- Sterne and Baggesen would approve. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Plein veau blond moucheté de l'époque. Dos à cinq nerfs ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés, ainsi que de pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge et blond.

Discrètes et habiles restaurations au niveau des mors et des coiffes de tête et de queue. Quelques pages très légèrement et uniformément brunies, sinon très bel exemplaire à toutes marges d'une grande fraîcheur. Ce très remarquable ouvrage, et fort célèbre, se signale de deux points de vue celui de l'illustration, d'une grande finesse d'exécution, et celui du travail théorique fondamental de Duhamel Du Monceau, qui servit de référence et de manuel, l'auteur marquant la différence entre les variétés des jardiniers et les classifications des naturalistes. Dans son Traité des forêts, Duhamel avaiet déjà employé les méthodes appliquées aux arbres fruitiers (repiquage, reboutage.) pour multiplier les espèces et sauver les forêts méthodes qu'il expérimenta longuement dans son domaine familial en compagnie de son frère. Les gravures représentent exclusivement des fruits de table, ainsi que de nombreux modèles de greffe et de taille. Près de 250 espèces de fruits sont ainsi décrites (poires, prunes, pommes, cerises, raisins.). L'ouvrage fut réalisé avec la collaboration de l'abbé Le Berriays qui apporta un peu plus d'un tiers des dessins ainsi qu'une grande partie du texte. On rappellera, à toutes fins utiles qu'on considère Henri-Louis Duhamel de Monceau comme le fondateur de l'agronomie moderne, car il fut le premier à décrire et théoriser le mode de développement des arbres.

Exemplaire aux armes frappées à froid de Armand Joseph Le Lièvre de la Grange, Marquis de Fourilles et de la Grange d'azur au chevron d'or, accompagné en chef de deux roses d'argent et en pointe d'un aigle éployé au vol abaissé de même. Pleine Basane blonde granitée d'époque. Dos lisse orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Un accroc avec manque au mors inférieur en tête. Fente au mors inférieur en queue. Gaston-Jean-Baptiste de Roquelaure, issu d'une illustre famille gasconne, maréchal de camp du roi, blessé au siège de Bordeaux, vit sa terre de Roquelaure érigée en duché. Il était petit et laid et disait de lui-même: «J'ai passé pour être fort laid: rien ne m'oblige d'être de l'avis de tout le monde.' Le roi Louis XIV le gardait en haute estime, il en était un des favoris, et un jour que la duchesse de Bourgogne le critiquait, il répondit: 'Je le trouve un des plus beaux hommes du Royaume car il est un des plus braves. » Ses bons mots et ses farces sont restés célèbres, mais il outrepassait souvent la mesure, et Louis XIV le renvoya de la cour durant un temps. Le roman raille la laideur du Duc et accumule les facéties et aventures du Duc à la cour dans une forme picaresque et un récit d'une grande drôlerie. D'Antoine Le Roy d'après Barbier.

"Byron was a midshipman aboard the Wager, which was wrecked on an island off the Chilean coast. He describes the privations endured by the survivors who remained with Captain David Cheap. They were made prisoners by the Indians and turned over to the Spanish authorities. This narrative supplied his grandson, Lord Byron, the poet, with many particulars for the shipwreck in Canto II of Don Juan. Byron, known as "foul weather Jack" commanded a voyage round the world in the Dolphin from 1764-1766. He was later governor of Newfoundland and became an admiral in 1775." (HILL).

Translated from the Original Latin, and accompanied with Notes and Chronological Tables.

      London: Printed for A. Millar; and sold by T. Cadell, 1768 - 5 volumes, octavos (205 × 128 mm). Contemporary full calf, spines gilt in compartments with a floral design, two morocco labels, one red, one brown, brown cloth bookmarkers, red speckled edges. Spines rubbed and lightly marked, extremities scuffed, endpapers partially tanned, but all internally fresh and in good condition. Second and best London edition, revised and enlarged from the first translation from the Latin of Mosheim's important 1753 work of religious history, first published in English by Maclaine in Halmstadt in 1755. Mosheim was the chancellor of the University of Gottingen; Maclaine, a presbyterian minister, was the somewhat more pious elder brother of the famous "gentleman highwayman" James Maclaine. His translation is noted as being considerably freer than James Murdoch's 1832 translation, and the liberal use of annotations to comment on and qualify Mosheim's text was acknowledged by European scholars, and incorporated into subsequent European versions of the text. Volumes 1 & 3 misprint the publication date as 1758. An interesting text in an attractive and truly contemporary binding.

        Cartas escriptas a Su Magestad ? a favor de la conducta, desinteres, zelo al real servicio, y enfermedades ?.

      (Quito?), , 1768. - Three large woodcuts on title-page, large woodcut floriated and factotum initials. (1 l.), 21 pp. Folio, recent full crimson morocco, plain spine, marbled endleaves. Scattered light spotting, old inked foliation. Crisp and in fine condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Medina believed that this work was printed in Madrid, as Hurtado de Mendoza was resident there in 1768. It consists of numerous testimonials from officials in Lima and Quito that Hurtado, a judge who found himself "molestado de graves, y prolixos accidentes," abandoned his official duties in Quito only in order to visit "medicos naturales, y estrangeros" in Lima, and hence regain his health to better serve his king. His purse being exhausted and his health no better, the judge asks the king for financial assistance. The most interesting letter (pp. 15-8) is from two missionaries who describe Hurtado's arrival at the "Reducción de los Indios Infieles de Terraba, y Talamancas" in Costa Rica, after an eleven-day journey in which he encountered two parties of hostile Indians; Hurtado had to stay at the mission for three weeks to recover.---- Medina, @BHA 4289: citing only the copy at the Archivo de Indias, Seville.
