        A Plan of the City of Canterbury

      London: , 1768. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. Size: 570 ×800 mm. Margins are slightly soiled together with some small nicks and tears, one minor repair to an old central fold tear. Very good condition otherwise. A very impressive large plan of the city of Canterbury in Kent, from surveys undertaken by Andrews and Wren, then printed and sold by Drury and Herbert in London. This delightful plan was made shortly in advance of a much larger 25 sheet map of the county of Kent by Andrews and Drury. This fascinating plan shows the city in much detail; including all local churches, hospitals, gallows, markets and surrounding field cultivation. The upper right corner displays a decorative title cartouche, showing hop being picked, for the production of beer.

        The East Indies, with the Roads

      Robert Sayer, London 1768 - This large map of India shows the area during the period of growing British presence in the mid-18th century. It is dedicated to the East India Company, which had gained control over the Bengal region by 1765, only a few years prior to the maps publication. One of the largest English-language maps of India of the period, it was also the most detailed that had yet to been produced, with particular attention given to the wide road network developing at the time. However, there is also a large portion of the country that remains little known and in a manner independent--such that the map shows a fascinating visual contrast between known information and blank space. The map is in very good condition with minor overall toning and slight dampstaining. A few small tears to edges, expert reinforcements to original folds. Thomas Jefferys (c. 1719-1771), was an English cartographer who worked as Geographer to King George III. As a prominent map supplier of his day, he produced cartographic works in both official and commercial capacities. This map of India describes a pivotal moment in the regions history. Map in two sheets. Engraving with hand colored outline. Each image measures 21" x 54.25".

He maintained a staff of twelve handsome footmen and lavished expensive presents on them. Comte Robert de Montesquiou: "It is most uncivil to mention ladies to Constantin Radzwill." No copies traced in North American or UK libraries.

Large 4to, cont. speckled boards (neatly rebacked & recornered in antique mottled calf by Aquarius), entirely uncut, spines gilt. St. Petersburg: Impensis Academia Imperialis Scientiarum, 1768-69-70. First edition of the third and final classic contribution by Euler to analytical mathematics. "This series of works was completed by the publication in three volumes in 1768 to 1770 of the Institutiones Calculi Integralis, in which the results of several of Euler's earlier memoirs on the same subject and on differential equations are included. This, like the similar treatise on the differential calculus, summed up what was then known on the subject, but many of the theorems were recast and the proofs improved. The Beta and Gamma functions were invented by Euler and are discussed here..."­Ball, A Short Account of the History of Mathematics, p. 396. This work "exhibits Euler's numerous discoveries in the theory of both ordinary and partial differential equations, which were especially useful in mechanics."­D.S.B., IV, p. 478. The second edition of this work appeared posthumously between 1792 and 1794 with a fourth volume of unpublished material. This fourth volume is sometimes mistakenly described as belonging to the first edition. Some unimportant worming to first leaves of Vol. I but a fine and large set. C.W.

        Exceedingly Rare and Important D.S. by the Original Residents of Texas

      Mexico 1768 - In 1767 he expelled the Jesuits from the colony, removing them from their Monasteries and Colleges, allowing them to leave with scarcely the clothes on their backs. These measures provoked a rebellion in which the Viceroy dealt severely with the rebels, proclaiming censorship of literary and scientific publications (1768) and hanging the leaders of the uprising. No sooner had opposition been eliminated, de Croix turned his attention toward the war-seeking Apache and Comanche Indian tribes - financing and authorizing an expedition led by Captain de Galvez into Nueva Vizcaya, whereby the Indians were soundly defeated. In March 1768, following the slow-downs, boycotts and disturbances in the mines of Guanajuato and Pachuca over the low wages paid to the miners, de Croix stunned the Colony by siding with the miners and forcing the mine-owners to agree to an increase in wages. His actions were deemed "One of the most significant social reforms in the New World" at that time. CARLOS FRANCISCO de CROIX - (1699 - 1786) - Viceroy of New Spain [Mexico] who served during the period of Great Turbulence. The sole purpose of his five year administration (1766 - 1771) was absolute obedience to the king, whom he always referred to as "Mi amo" Exceedingly rare and historically important D.S., folio, 2pp., in Spanish (roughly translated), A Royal Proclamation: El Marquis de Croix, March 9, 1768, ordering the mine-owners to make concessions and increase wages, in small part: ".A decline in mining.the mines have the common enemy of water, which has flooded them.the excessive construction cost of which the Kingdom has no wealth. Is the relief moderation the price you ask as the best mines are completely uninhabited and desolate? Send my fatherly love to my vassals (subjects).I'll strive by all means.that they are fruitful. I've visited the Council of the Indies. Faith issued.and the moderate price of quicksilver.which is distributed to the miners, a part of the quarto, has so far been given for relief to support the work" . "I command you, with consequences, that you publish and carefully observe that the above ceiling of a fourth part of the price at which would have been taken in quicksilver.be given to the miners.ending the embargo. Also, by Royal Proclamation, inserted within, it is free of tax". Also signed by: MANUEL RODRIGUEZ - (1697 - 1772) %u2013 Military leader on the Coahuila-Texas frontier, esteemed explorer, and one of Texas greatest Indian fighters. After the departure of Jacinto de Barrios y Jaurequi in February of 1768 %u2013 he became brief interim Governor and military commandant of the Province. Rare signature as Commandant and Governor of the Province. *According to the Texas State Historical Association: "It was not until recently that archivists were aware that Rodriguez was a Governor.a fact scarcely noted by historians. Very good.

First edition of Chappe d'Auteroche's finely illustrated account of Siberia. A colleague of Maraldi, Cassini de Thury and Lalande at the Paris Observatory, the French priest and astronomer abbé Jean-Baptiste Chappe d'Auteroche travelled to Siberia in 1761 to observe the transit of Venus in 1761, and his account of that trip (vol. I, parts i and ii) describes the meteorology, climate, fauna and minerals of the region, and also gives a sociological commentary. As Hill comments, these "forthright and sometimes provocative descriptions of Russian manners and character ... inspired the publication of an indignant rebuttal, sometimes attributed to Catherine the Great". Vol. II contains his translation of Krasheninnikov's description of Kamchatka, Opisanie zemli Kamchatki (St Petersburg, 1755). A truncated French version based on the abridged English translation had already appeared, whereas Chappe d'Auteroche returned to the original full Russian text which contains "considerable material on alaska and the northwest coast of America." According to the publisher's preface, he did the work at St Petersburg, where he was able to consult Gerhard Friedrich Müller, supervisor of both Krasheninnikov and Steller on Bering's second expedition, who assisted with the translation and clarified obscure points. His unabridged translation was published as a separate work at Amsterdam in 1770.

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).

It commanded the rulers of Europe to suppress heresies, schisms, sacrilege, infringement of papal and ecclesiastical privileges and prevent attacks on person and property, piracy, forgery and other crimes. It was resented by most rulers as an infringement of their rights. Lopez reviews the history of this bull (and its predecessors) in Spain. OCLC locates 6 copies in North American law libraries (Columbia, Harvard, Library of Congress, Louisiana State Law Library, UC-Berkeley, University of Michigan). Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        A South West View of the City of New York, in North America. Vue de Sud Oust de la Ville de New York, dans l'Amerique Septentrionale. Drawn on the Spot by Capt. Thomas Howdell, of the Royal Artillery. Engraved by P.Canot

      London: printed for John Bowles, Robert Sayer, Thos. Jefferys, Carington Bowles and Henry Parker, [1768]. Copper engraving by Pierre Charles Canot, after Howdell, coloured by hand. Third state. 19 1/8 x 25 1/2 inches. The Howdell-Canot Southwest view: one of the most important early views of New York City, taken from the southern slope of Mount Pitt, near the present- day intersection of Henry and Montgomery Streets. This fine print from the famously rare Scenographia Americana series is after a drawing by Captain Howdell made in about 1763. Little is known of Howdell's life other than the outline of his military career. His name first appears in the Army Lists in 1747 and continues until 1771. In 1763 he commanded the seventh company of the third battalion of the Royal Artillery, stationed in New York. He produced one other view of the city that was also published in the Scenographia. The present view from Mount Pitt shows the Rutgers house built in 1754-5, across the harbour can be seen the roofs of the city with Trinity Church and the New (or Middle) Dutch Church prominent on the skyline. The meadow south of the Rutgers house is a prominent feature in many of the views and plans of the period. Deak 116; Stokes Iconography I. pp. 279-281 (plate37)

        The Political Register, and Impartial Review of New Books for MDCCLXVII (1767) Vol. I and Vol. III (1768)

      London: Almon / Beevor. 1768. Hardcover. Good. 2 volumes, the first and third volumes, 1767, 1768, containing numbers 1-8 and 16-21 (July-December, 1768). 8vo, original quarter calf and marbled boards, 486 and 390 pp.. The first volume has large folding plate, 'A View of Lord Bute's Erections' and 'A Late Lord Mayor of London,' 'The Duumvirate,' 'Sampson Pulling Down the Pillars,' and 'The Wire Master and his Puppets' - the third volume has three engraved plates including a half page plate attributed to Ben Franklin: 'The Colonies Reduced' showing a woman sitting down with her arms and legs, labeled Pennsylvania, New York, New England and Virginia, cleanly lopped off but lying nearby). The first volume is fair with boards present but detached, spine very dry and splitting in three places; needs to be rebound. The third volume is Good at best, splitting to joints and completely split along spine between October issue and November issue. Signs of bookplate removal to pastedown and ink number stamp to verso of frontispiece may indicate previous library possession but no other library marks. Frontispiece shows damp stain tide mark. Has much on the American colonies, and an old catalog entry that is pasted in remarks that there are a number of contributions by BEN FRANKLIN, who was responsible for engraving the plate, 'The Colonies Reduced' which is apparently so rare a plate that Ford in his Franklin bibliography states that he had only seen one copy of the plate. All issues of this plate are of 'the greatest rarity' -- Goodspeed's cataloged the 1768 volume alone in 1959 for $57.50.

To which are added, remarks on the language and customs of some particular tribes among the Indians

      London: William Davenhill and George Pearch, 1768. 8vo. (8 1/4 x 4 7/8 inches). 110, [1] pp. Half-title, publisher's advertisement leaf in rear. Later half blue straight grain morocco over marbled paper covered boards, flat spine lettered in gilt. First edition of Beatty's journal of his travels among the Delaware Indians: "the first account of Indian towns in southeast Ohio" (Howes). The author was an Irish-born Presbyterian missionary who preached widely in both America and Europe. Beatty was sent to the American frontier in 1766 to report on the condition of the Indian 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). Scarce with both the half-title and ad leaf. Howes B281; Vail 589; Sabin 4149; Field 102; Pilling, Proof Sheets 324; Thomson 72.

        An Ecclesiastical History,

      London: Printed for A. Millar; and sold by T. Cadell,, 1768. Antient and Modern, from the Birth of Christ, to the Beginning of the Present Century: in which The Rise, Progress, and Variations of Church Power are Considered in their Connexion with the State of Learning and Philosophy, and the Political History of Europe during that Period. Translated from the Original Latin, and accompanied with Notes and Chronological Tables. 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.

        The East Indies, with the Roads

      London: Robert Sayer, 1768. unbound. very good. Map in two sheets. Engraving with hand colored outline. Each image measures 21" x 54.25". This large map of India shows the area during the period of growing British presence in the mid-18th century. It is dedicated to the East India Company, which had gained control over the Bengal region by 1765, only a few years prior to the maps publication. One of the largest English-language maps of India of the period, it was also the most detailed that had yet to been produced, with particular attention given to the wide road network developing at the time. However, there is also a large portion of the country that remains little known and in a manner independent--such that the map shows a fascinating visual contrast between known information and blank space. The map is in very good condition with minor overall toning and slight dampstaining. A few small tears to edges, expert reinforcements to original folds. Thomas Jefferys (c. 1719-1771), was an English cartographer who worked as Geographer to King George III. As a prominent map supplier of his day, he produced cartographic works in both official and commercial capacities. This map of India describes a pivotal moment in the regions history.

        The Farm Yard. From the Original Picture, by Peter de Laër, called Bamboccio; In the Collection of Robt. Udney Esqr

      London: John Boydell, 1 October 1768. Engraving, coloured by hand, by Philip Charles Canot. 16 3/4 x 22 3/8 inches. 19 1/4 x 23 3/16 inches. A fine example of van Laer's 'bambocciata' compositions, ably engraved by one of the great late 18th century engravers working in London. The title notes that the original picture, from which this engraving is taken, was 29 inches by 38 inches. Dutch painter and printmaker, [Van Laer was ]... active mainly in Rome, [where] he established a reputation as the inventor of the bambocciata (Fr. bambocciade), a variety of painting characterized by its small size, naturalistic style and references to contemporary Italian popular culture. He attracted many followers in Italy, known as the Bambaccianti.' Peter Charles Canot (1710-1777) '...was a native of France, who came to England in 1740, and remained...till he died. He was a member of the Incorporated Society of Artists in 1766, and was elected an associate engraver of the Royal Academy in 1770, when that degree was first instituted. He exhibited at the Society of Artists, the Free Society, and the Royal Academy. A line-engraver of considerable skill, he executed numerous plates after Van de Velde, Bakhuisen, Teniers, Claude, and other old masters.' (DNB)

The author's introduction draws attention to the fact that much had hitherto been written about the profitable cultivation of desirable animals, but his intent is to take "cognizance of those animals, noxious to the community," to describe "their wonderful wiliness and sagacity, and the uncommon and suprizing methods they take for self- preservation...for the infinite wisdom of the great Creator is as conspicuous in the mole as in a camel...." In addition to various rats and mice, Smith provides advice on hedge hogs, squirrels, weasels, moles, cats, pole cats, bats, hawks, owls, and buzzards. His work is notable for the minute observation it extended toward species normally beneath the gaze of natural historians of his, and earlier, times.

        Free masonry the high-way to hell. A sermon: wherein is clearly proved, both from reason and scripture, that all who profess these mysteries are in a state of eternal damnation.

      [no printer's name given],, London 1768 - An apparently unrecorded issue of this anonymous anti-freemasonry sermon: also printed in the same year as Masonry the Way to Hell.The sermon takes as its text Revelation XVII, 5 "And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots, and Abominations of the Earth" and gives a detailed consideration of the supposed ceremonies of the masons. Three other editions/issues dated 1768 are known, one with a Robinson and Roberts imprint paginating [iv], 39, [1] (NY Historical Society only) and a stated "Second edition" with the same imprint and pagination (BL and Clark Library, UCLA only), together with a Dublin reprint. All three are recorded by ESTC in single copies only. The Sermon provoked a response from John Thompson, freemason, entitled Remarks on a sermon lately published; entitled, Masonry the way to hell. Being a defence of that antient and honourable order, against the Jesuitical sophistry and false calumny of the author (1768, BL only). 8vo (162 × 90 mm), pp. [ii], 38, bound without half-title and final blanks. Typographical ornaments. Upper margins cut quite close, pagination just trimmed in a few cases. Late nineteenth-century half calf, spine with longitudinal purple label lettered in gilt, nineteenth-century bibliographical notes to front pastedown. Rubbed. A good copy. [Not found in ESTC or Worldcat.] [Attributes: Hard Cover]
