        L'Homme aux quarante ecus.

      S. l., 1768.. In-8, cartonnage marbre a la bradel, piece de titre de maroquin bronze (rel. Devauchelle), (4), 120 p. Rarissime contrefacon executee immediatement a la suite de la premiere edition comme celle-ci, en 120 pages, et comme celle-ci avec le dernier feuillet contenant la table suivie, au verso, d'un errata de 3 fautes, non corrigees dans le texte. Elle est reconnaissable a plusieurs details, dont l'erreur de signature au feuillet Fiij, signe "Piij". Cette edition n'est recensee ni par Bengesco, ni par 'L'oeuvre imprimee de Voltaire a la BN', ni aucune des principales bibliographies qui la confondent avec la premiere. Seul Besterman, 'The Complete Works of Voltaire', vol. 66, Voltaire Foundation, 1999, p. 269, n°68P fait la difference. Le fleuron de titre est recense par le site "Fleuron" de la BCU de Lausanne (n° or1554) qui le reproduit d'apres un ouvrage imprime le libraire lyonnais Claude-Andre Faucheux. Dirige contre les physiocrates, notamment Le Mercier de La Riviere et son 'Ordre naturel des societes politiques', l'ouvrage fut condamne au feu par le parlement en 1768, puis interdit par decret de la cour de Rome. Un arret de la Chambre des vacations du 24 septembre 1768 punit tres severement trois revendeurs clandestins du livre. (Manque a la BnF (?). Un unique exemplaire recense a Oclc, celui de l'Institut et Musee Voltaire). Tres bon exemplaire, tres frais, grand de marges, bien relie..

        Handgezeichnetes Musterbuch für Kreuzstichstickerei. 22 beidseitig bemalte (zur Stabilisierung zusammengeklebte) Blätter. Mit roter Tusche in feine Quadrate aufgeteilt, darauf in schwarz die Muster. Ohne Ort, 9. August 1788. Quer-8vo. (10,2 x 16,6 cm). Pappband d. Zt. mit dunkelbraunem, geprägtem Glanzpapierbezug, Rücken wohl wenig später mit rotem Papier überzogen.

      . . Die Zeichnerin u. ursprüngliche Besitzerin dieses Albums ist aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach die unverheiratet gebliebene Johanna Friederica Salome von Dacheroeden (Mittelsömmern - 1768-1844 (?) - Mittelsömmern oder Kutzleben/Lützensömmern) aus der Linie Mittelsömmern/Kirchheiligen der von Dacheroedens. Ihre gleichnamige Kusine (1775-1806) kommt als Urheberin wohl nicht in Frage, da sie 1788 noch zu jung gewesen sein dürfte. Die erste Seite mit dem mit einer kleinen Krone geschmückten Titel "Johanna Friederica Salome von Dachröden : den 9. Augustus 1788". Auf S. 2 folgt ein kleines Alphabet inklusive Zahlen, anschließend unterschiedliche florale Muster, am Rand teilw. mit Bordüren (Blatt 2-15).

        CHIRURGIE D'ARMEE ou traité des plaies d'armes à feu, et d'armes blanches, avec des observations sur ces maladies ; les formules des remèdes qui ont le mieux réussi, des méthodes nouvelles pour leur traitement ; des instruments pour tirer les corps étrangers ; un moyen assuré pour la réduction des fractures et des luxations, & une infinité d'autres détails neufs et intéressants.

      Paris, Didot le Jeune, 1768. - Paris, Didot le Jeune, 1768 ; in-8, VIII, 681 (i.e., 685), (1) pp., 7 planches h.t. gravées sur cuivre, pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges, reliure un peu frottée, petit manque de cuir à un coin du plat inférieur, intérieur en très bon état (rares rousseurs). Edition originale du principal ouvrage de l'auteur et de l'un des plus importants traités de chirurgie militaire. Ravaton avait déjà publié en 1750 un traité consacré aux seules plaies par armes à feu. Cette Chirurgie d'armée est le fruit de 36 années de pratique dans les camps et les hôpitaux de guerre. Hugues Ravaton, qui était alors chirurgien major de l'hôpital militaire de Landau, y rapporte de très nombreuses observations, assorties de réflexions souvent judicieuses. Il expose ses principes et ses procédés opératoires. Il décrit sa méthode d'amputation à deux lambeaux désossés, à laquelle son nom sera attaché. Devant la gravité des fractures de la cuisse, il envisage et décrit le mode opératoire de la désarticulation de la hanche, qu'il aurait pratiqué en 1745 sur un blessé s'il n'avait pas rencontré l'opposition de ses confrères. Il conçoit des appareils ingénieux pour la contention des fractures ou la réduction des luxations, ainsi qu'un appareil de prothèse pour les amputations sus-malléolaires ("bottine spéciale", décrite et figurée p. 409, qui permit à un cavalier de reprendre du service pendant 4 ans et de faire 3 campagnes en Allemagne). Une observation (N°7, p. 562), qui na pas échappé à Zeis, concerne la chirurgie plastique ("D'un coup de sabre, avec lésion des os et des cartilages du nez"). Ce traité comporte aussi des données précieuses sur l'organisation des hôpitaux ambulants. Ravaton émet déjà l'idée de former des brigades médicales destinées à suivre les gros détachements de l'armée pour "avoir des secours prompts et assurés", anticipant les formations sanitaires volantes de Percy et de Larrey. Garrison & Morton, 2154 : "One of the most important works on military surgery during the 18th century. Ravaton, a skilful army surgeon, was the first to employ a tin boot, suspended on four rings, for the 'hanging' position of broken bones. He was also first to adopt the double-flap method in amputations. ; Delorme, Histoire de la chirurgie militaire française, pp. 110-115 : "La Chirurgie darmée de Ravaton ne ressemble à aucun autre des livres de notre chirurgie écrits avant lui et, parmi ceux qui ont paru plus tard la Clinique de Baudens peut seule en être rapprochée sans l'égaler. Ce qui y domine, ce sont des observations toutes intéressantes ." ; Kirkup, A history of limb amputation, p. 47, 53, 54, 133, 141 ; Gabriel, A history of military medicine, p. 78, 95, 105 ; Rozier, Essai d'une bibliographie universelle de la médecine, de la chirurgie et de la pharmacie militaires, 3599 ; Waller, 7765.

        L'ART D'EXPLOITER LES MINES DE CHARBON DE TERRE

      [Paris: Académie Royale des Sciences], 1768. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 432 x 279 mm (17 x 11"). Supplement to part I (numbered 1357-62) bound after p. 196 of volume I; the 44-pp. "Memoire" bound at the end of volume II, after p. 1356 (where the supplement would normally have appeared). Four volumes. FIRST EDITION. Excellent contemporary marbled calf, flat spines gilt in compartments with central fleuron encircled by small tools and with volute cornerpieces, each spine with one black and one red label, marbled endpapers. WITH 79 OFTEN VERY PLEASING ENGRAVED TECHNOLOGICAL PLATES of mining operations and equipment, three of these double-page. Front pastedowns with small round label of Bibliotheque de Sailly. Kress 6581; Brunet II, 618-19. Leather with a few minor abrasions, a significant area of one cover with loss of patina from insect activity, general light wear, but the unrestored period bindings entirely solid, with no serious signs of use, and with a pleasing shelf appearance. Three dozen leaves with slight or moderate overall browning, intermittent small, light marginal dampstains, 20 leaves with one-inch elongated wormhole at top edge (not reaching the text), a dozen plates slightly to somewhat browned, additional minor defects, otherwise excellent internally, with good margins, with strong impressions of the engravings, and with clean, fresh leaves. This treatise on coal mining comprises a survey of the state of cutting-edge technology in the 18th century. It covers the subject comprehensively, discussing geological and mineralogical explanations for the locations of coal deposits, the methods of mining coal, the state of the coal industry in France, the commerce and economics of the coal trade in Europe, and the ways--both practical and theoretical--in which coal could be employed to heat and light houses and to fuel factories and workshops. At the time of publication, French forests were being depleted of wood at an alarming rate, and there was a pressing need to find an alternate source of energy. Coal seemed the answer to the problem. Jean-François-Clément Morand (1726-84) trained as a physician but preferred to devote himself to scientific research rather than to the practice of medicine. He became a member of the Academy of Sciences in 1759, and was appointed librarian to the organization. This set is uncommonly seen in the marketplace, and when it does appear, it is usually incomplete.

        Baptismos de Yndios desde Henero de 1768 hasta Agosto de 1775

      Registering Mexican Indian?s Baptisms, in an entirely genuine binding. 1768-1775. Ciudad de Mexico, Parroquia de San Sebastian. In folio (290 mm x 201 mm). 1[blank] + 20 (index) + 4 [blank] + + 125 ff. Overlapping attractive Mexican sheep, front and back boards with paper labels lettered in ink, spine also with paper label, back boards lettered in ink, mostly covered by label, slightly soiled, still a most appealing original binding. Inner mainly marginal wormhole virtually throughout the book, occasionally touching text although mostly unobtrusive, last leaves with light damp stain, else very fresh and clean. A ledger of the baptisms celebrated at the Parish of San Sebastian from the 1st of January 1768 until the 6th of august 1775. Each "asiento" or entry is signed by two Priests, one is almost always Jose Sensuto, the others are Juan Bautista Bravo, Joseph Guevara, Ignacio de Yglesia, Miguel Francisco de Ayala, Juan Francisco Belmonte, Antonio de Pardo, Lino Nepomuceno Gomez, Manuel Velazquez, Mariano Gutierrez, Francisco Palacios; amongst others. A note accompanies the entries on the respective margin indicating the name of the native being baptized, forexample "Juana Maria de Nepomuceno India". Up to the number 470 the entries are numbered, possibly right around a third of the work. The manuscript is set in a very legible pair of hands, changing at the year 1771. Such manuscripts are relevant for their ethnographical aspect; they mark a period when the native population, often without consideration of will, was converted into Christianity. Furthermore it provides a considerable account on the names of natives in the 18th century. The binding is completely artisanal and locally made; it is possibly one of the most attractive and well-preserved colonial Mexican bindings we have encountered. A splendid testimony of Mexican book-binding.

        Vollständige Anleitung zur Algebra.St. Petersburg: Kaiserliche Academie der Wissenschaften, 1770.

      First edition of Euler's great textbook of algebra in its language of composition, preceded only by an extremely rare Russian translation published in 1768-9 by two of his students. "Euler's Vollständige Anleitung zur Algebra is not only the most popular textbook on elementary algebra, with the exception of Euclid's Elements it is the most widely printed book on mathematics." (Truesdell). It "was translated into Russian (1768-9), Dutch (1773), French (1774), Latin (1790), English (1797, 1822) and Greek (1800). The popular German edition from Reclam Verlag sold no less than 108,000 copies between 1883 and 1943 (Reich, 1992). After 240 years this algebra textbook is still in print today, available in several languages and editions" (Heeffer). <br/><br/> "In 1770 Euler published his 'Vollständige Anleitung zur Algebra'... The first volume treats of determinate algebra. This contains one of the earliest attempts to place the fundamental processes on a scientific basis: the same subject had attracted D'Alembert's attention. This work also includes the proof of the binomial theorem for an unrestricted real index which is still known by Euler's name ... The second volume of the algebra treats of indeterminate or Diophantine algebra. This contains the solutions of some of the problems proposed by Fermat, and which had hitherto remained unsolved." (Ball). <br/><br/> "Euler proved the impossibility of solving x<sup>3</sup>+y<sup>3</sup>=z<sup>3</sup> in which x, y, and z are integers, xyz ?0 (a particular case of Fermat's last theorem); his demonstration, based on the method of infinite descent and using complex numbers of the form a+b(-3)<½> , is thoroughly described in his Vollständige Anleitung zur Algebra, the second volume of which has a large section devoted to Diophantine analysis." (DSB). <br/><br/> Euler composed his famous 'Algebra' in German in 1765-6, soon after his return to St Petersburg from Berlin. He was by then partially blind, and dictated the work to a young valet. Publication of the original German version (as offered here) was, however, delayed until 1770 and thus came to be preceded by a Russian translation by his students Peter Inokhodtsev and Ivan Yudin which was issued in 1768-9. This Russian translation is practically unobtainable; OCLC locates just one copy worldwide. The offered original German edition is also very rare with just two copies being auctioned in the past fifty years (Norman 1998 & Honeyman 1979). <br/><br/> Norman 735; Honeyman 1075; Eneström 387 & 388; Truesdell, Leonard Euler: Supreme Geometer, 1972; Albrecht Heeffer, The Rhetoric of Problems in Algebra Textbooks from Pacioli to Euler, pp.4-5; Ball, A Short Account of the History of Mathematics, p.397.

Like other self-educated men, Reed formed an unwarrantably high opinion of his own literary achievements. But he had a caustic wit, and wrote with much energy. Farquar is usually classed among the writers of English Restoration comedy, though he stands a little apart from them, both chronologically and in showing more variety of plot, depth of feeling, and, in his later and best plays, a more conscious effort to adapt the licentiousness of the early comedy of manners to the changing taste of the time. Cumberland turned to writing drama because he needed the money. Kelly wrote pieces which at the time eclipsed his literary rival, Goldsmith. -- "as it is Performed at the Theatre-Royal in Covent Garden; The Recruiting Officer.

Adresse.Superbe lettre de Chateaubriand relative à une contrefaçon de son pamphlet contre Napoléon : « De Buonaparte et des Bourbons » publié en mars 1814.«Monsieur, je m&#146;empresse de vous remercier du zèle que vous avez témoigné pour mes intérêts. Je n&#146;ai point encore vu M. de Loisy et sans doute il aura oublié cette affaire ; je désire de tout mon c&#156;ur que mon ouvrage sur Bonaparte soit répandu puisqu&#146;il fait du bien, mais en même temps, Monsieur, je ne suis point du tout dans le cas de négliger mes intérêts quand ils sont d&#146;accord avec mes devoirs. La révolution m&#146;a tout enlevé, j&#146;ai tout refusé de Bonaparte et je n&#146;ai pour vivre honorablement que le produit de mes ouvrages. Je vous prie donc, Monsieur, d&#146;agir en conséquence contre le libraire et l&#146;imprimeur contrefacteur et débiteur de mon ouvrage sur Bonaparte et les Bourbons. Si ces Messieurs avaient eu des intentions si pures, n&#146;auraient-ils pas du m&#146;écrire comme Ballanche mon libraire de Lyon, et je me serais arrangé avec eux. D&#146;ailleurs, je ne suis point absolument le maître, l&#146;imprimeur de Paris a des droits qu&#146;il va surement faire valoir, quand je ne le voudrai pas moi même, il va poursuivre l&#146;imprimeur de Dijon. Agréez encore, Monsieur, tous mes remerciements pour les choses obligeantes que vous me dites sur mes ouvrages. Je suis charmé qu&#146;ils aient le bonheur de vous plaire, et encore plus heureux du sentiment qu&#146;ils vous inspirent. J&#146;ai l&#146;honneur d&#146;être, Monsieur, votre très humble et très obéissant serviteur. »

Lyttelton supposedly took almost thirty years to research and write this celebrated history of Henry II, grandson of William the Conqueror, and the first Plantagenet king of England, who ruled from 1154-1189, was married to Eleanor of Aquitaine, and succeeded by his son, Richard I. Politics in Middle Ages England was dominated by struggles between the crown and the church, and Henry II&#39;s reign is probably best remembered for the murder of Thomas a&#39;Beckett by several of Henry&#39;s knights. .
