Bouquet, the commander of Fort Pitt, successfully lead an offensive against Pontiac's forces with 1500 soldiers. Rather than face the dispersed Indian bands who used hit and run tactics, Bouquet targeted their population centers (i.e. villages) with his superior numbers to force peace.

"His Lezioni di economia civile (1765) may be described as an unsystematic system of the whole range of his economic thought. These lectures do indeed display the influence of contemporaneous and earlier writers and, what is worse, the argument frequently lacks rigor. But nobody had, when they appeared, published as comprehensive a presentation of the utilitarian welfare economics that the epoch was evolving. The mercantilist elements in Genovesi's teaching only prove the realism of his vision" (Schumpeter, History of economic analysis, p. 177). Biblioteca Einaudi, A.313. Kress Italian, 569.

        Korte en eenvoudige handleyding tot het leeren van 't clavecimbel of orgel-spel. Tweede druk.Gouda, Johannes vander Klos, 1768. 4to. With an etching showing types of musical notes in text and a folding etched plate showing several aspects of staff notation. Modern cloth.

      - [Advertisement] in: Opregte Haerlemse courant, 27 (1769), p. [2]; Boers, "Bouwstoffen tot eene Nederlandsche muzikale litteratuur", in: Caecilia VI, 2 (1849), p. 15; STCN (2 copies). Very rare second and enlarged edition of an introduction in learning to play keyboard instruments. In the preface, the author writes that the first edition of the treatise was highly praised and quickly sold out. As this necessitated a second edition, he used the occasion to add "everything which came to my mind while instructing [from the book]" (*2r) and include an engraved plate. In this "short and simple manual" the author gives the basics of musical staff notation and of playing basso continuo. Over the next 50 years, the book went through numerous editions but at the time proved to be too complicated for beginners. Therefore, Hess wrote a simplified edition of the book, containing more explanations and an extra illustration, which was published in 1808. No copies of the first edition of the Korte en eenvoudige handleyding could be located, nor could they be identified in any source (cf. Boers).Joachim Hess (1732-1819) was an organist and writer, who wrote several treatises on organs and organ playing. For almost sixty years he played the Moreau organ in the Sint-Janskerk in Gouda, which was changed according to his specifications. In his publications he gives great knowledge of all matters related to the organ and he was famous throughout the Netherlands for both his writing and his playing.With the title-page and the inner part and outer margin of the folding plate browned where they touch the endpapers; a good copy.

        Tabulae Anatomicae clarissimi viri Bartholomaei Eustachii ..

      Venetiis [Venice], Typis Bartolomaei Locatelli ('accurata & pulcherrima Veneta editio, summo studio elaborata, atque diligentissime aere incisa'), 1769. Large folio (approximately 420 x 300 mm), with an engraved frontispiece portrait, title page printed in red and black (with an engraved title vignette of a dissection), and 21 plates of anatomical subjects containing approximately 225 figures, engraved after Eustachius' plates by 'Petrus Monaco'. Early plain laced limp boards, with a few chips or short tears to the spine; a few light and inoffensive stains to the plates, well clear of the illustrations (the first five have a small light spot near the top margin, the balance have a tidemark to the bottom inside corner, becoming larger and more visible only towards the end); the first two plates are slightly cropped along the top edge, affecting a few captions; trifling production flaws to a few plates (occasional creases caused by the drawing of such large sheets through the rolling press; smudges where the copper plate was not wiped completely clean); one old pencil annotation in Italian; one old tear to the front flyleaf expertly sealed; trifling signs of use and age; overall an excellent copy of this rare work, in attractive original condition. Bartolomeo Eustachius (circa 1510/20-1574) completed the plates in 1554. Less stylized than those of his contemporary and antagonist Vesalius, his anatomical illustrations are remarkably accurate despite his support of the old Galenic theories of anatomy. The copper plates remained unpublished in his lifetime and were rediscovered by Giovanni Maria Lancisi, the papal physician, who published them with his own commentaries in 1714. Eustachius' original 47 plates are here re-engraved on 21 plates, an effort made possible by the very large format of this edition. Choulant-Franck, page 202 (giving very few details); Garrison-Morton 391 (the 1714 edition, but the lengthy note is relevant to this edition, and includes the following comment: 'These copperplates are more accurate than the work of Vesalius. Singer was of the opinion that had they appeared in 1552 Eustachius would have ranked with Vesalius as one of the founders of modern anatomy. He discovered the Eustachian tube, the thoracic duct ... and gave the first accurate description of the uterus'). Provenance: Dr Milton Roxanas (purchased from James Tait Goodrich, Englewood, with his catalogue record loosely inserted).

        The Microscope Made Easy. The fifth edition: with an additional Plate of the Solar Microscope, and some farther Accounts of the Polype.

      London:: Printed for J. Dodsley, 1769., 1769. 8vo. xvi, 324 pp. 15 engraved plates (1 is unnumbered, facing p.22), folding table (p.36), index; some offsetting of plates, occasional foxing. Modern full speckled calf, raised bands, gilt-stamped red spine label, new endleaves. Bookplates of William Strong ["Fortis et Fidelis"] and Alfred M. Hellman, M.D. Fifth edition, with additions (see title) of this extremely popular work which went into a number of editions. The first edition was issued in 1742, and was full of material that the author "compiled, abstracted and copied everything available about the instrument, even Leeuwenhoek's plates found in the archives of the Society" [Ratcliff, p.80], this edition includes the discovery of the polyp. Even so, no one had studied Leeuwenhoek's instruments that were considered so valuable for his own pioneering and systematic research, until Baker took the task up some 20 years later - those instruments having been donated in 1723 on Leeuwenhoek's death. Arranged in two parts, the first dealing with various types of microscopes, their employment and adjustment, including the instruments of Wilson, Leeuwenhoek, Culpepper, Scarlett, Cuff, and Lieberkühn. The second part is devoted to the examination of natural specimens established by and similar to Hooke's Micrographia. This work and the author's Employment of the Microscope, contain the bulk of his more important communications to the Royal Society. Ratcliff offers more insight to the relationship Baker had with the various persons involved with instrument making, including Cuff and Lieberkühn. Some description of the distribution and translations of the edition are also mentioned. Ratcliffe also writes, "With, The Microscope Made Easy, Baker achieved an important place as microscopical observer in the Society..." (p.180). See: Dr. Marc J Ratcliff, The Quest for the Invisible: Microscopy in the Enlightenment, (2013), page 268. PROVENANCE: William Strong ["Fortis et Fidelis"], D.D., Canon and 45 years Archdeacon of Northampton (1842-1886); Alfred Myer Hellman, M.D. (1880-1955), took his medical degree at Columbia University, worked in New York, was a very well-known obstetrician. He was also an "avid" collector of medical books, represented by his bibliographical work: A collection of early obstetrical books; an historical essay with bibliographical descriptions of 37 items, including 25 editions of Roesslin's Rosengarten, 1952. See: Walter Debenham Sweeting, The New Guide to Peterborough Cathedral Comprising a Brief History of the Monastery..., (1893), p. 37.

The first edition was issued in 1742, and was full of material that the author “compiled, abstracted and copied everything available about the instrument, even Leeuwenhoek’s plates found in the archives of the Society” [Ratcliff, p.80], this edition includes the discovery of the polyp. Even so, no one had studied Leeuwenhoek’s instruments that were considered so valuable for his own pioneering and systematic research, until Baker took the task up some 20 years later â€" those instruments having been donated in 1723 on Leeuwenhoek’s death. Arranged in two parts, the first dealing with various types of microscopes, their employment and adjustment, including the instruments of Wilson, Leeuwenhoek, Culpepper, Scarlett, Cuff, and Lieberkühn. The second part is devoted to the examination of natural specimens established by and similar to Hooke’s Micrographia. This work and the author’s Employment of the Microscope, contain the bulk of his more important communications to the Royal Society. Ratcliff offers more insight to the relationship Baker had with the various persons involved with instrument making, including Cuff and Lieberkühn. Some description of the distribution and translations of the edition are also mentioned. Ratcliffe also writes, “With, The Microscope Made Easy, Baker achieved an important place as microscopical observer in the Society…” (p.180). See: Dr. Marc J Ratcliff, The Quest for the Invisible: Microscopy in the Enlightenment, (2013), page 268. PROVENANCE: William Strong [“Fortis et Fidelis”], D.D., Canon and 45 years Archdeacon of Northampton (1842-1886); Alfred Myer Hellman, M.D. (1880-1955), took his medical degree at Columbia University, worked in New York, was a very well-known obstetrician. He was also an “avid” collector of medical books, represented by his bibliographical work: A collection of early obstetrical books; an historical essay with bibliographical descriptions of 37 items, including 25 editions of Roesslin's Rosengarten, 1952.

Bossiegel, 1769, Kl.4, (10), 196 (6), 242 pp., 9 Kupferstichtafeln, 2 Pappbände der Zeit minimal fleckig. Klassiker der Biomechanik - Sehr seltene erste und einzige Ausgabe ! "In dieser Periode treten - wesentlich beeinflusst durch die Leistungen der Italiener - zum ersten Male deutsche Gelehrte als Förderer der Ohranatomie auf. Unter den zahlreichen Bearbeitern dieses Spezialgebietes ragen besonders Cassebohm, Brendel, Zinn und Meckel hervor. Auch in der Ohrphysiologie wurde ein bedeutender Fortschritt angebahnt, wozu die akustischen Arbeiten der zeitgenössischen deutschen Physiker wesentlich beitrugen". Johann Gottfried Brendel, " erwarb sich abgesehen von seinen otologischen Arbeiten auch auf dem Gebiete der gerichtlichen Medizin besondere Verdienste.In seiner Schrift "Progr. de auditu in apice Cochleae", Göttingingen 1747, beschrieb er eingehend das Spiralblatt, die Spindel und den Spindelkanal der Schnecke, sowie den Verlauf des Nerven in der Schnecke. Seiner Ansicht nach tritt ein Zweig des Schneckennerven, der durch den Spindelkanal zieht, aus kleinen Löchern am blinden Ende desselben in den Vieussensschen Becher, um sich in dessen Spitze auszubreiten. An der Spindel unterschied Brendel eine äußere härtere und glattere Rinde und einen inneren weicheren Teil, der den Zentralkanal umschließt. Ein sprechendes Zeugnis für die Gründlichkeit seiner Untersuchungen bildet die Auffindung der Kommunikationsstelle beider Treppen in einer kleinen Oeffnung des Bechers. Eigentümlicher weise verlegt er den Ort des Hörens in die Schneckenspitze, weil er die Beobachtung gemacht haben wollte, daß der Hörnerv nach Passierung des Spindelkanals sich an der Schneckenspitze in Fasern auflöst hier sollen nun nach seiner irrigen Auffassung die Schallwellen wie in einem Brennpunkte zur Vereinigung gelangen (Senac)." Politzer, Geschichte der Ohrenheilkunde.Johann Gottfried Brendel (* 23. Februar 1711 in Wittenberg ? 17. Januar 1758 in Göttingen) als Sohn des Wittenberger Medizinprofessors Adam Brendel und seiner Frau Christina Henrietta von Berger geboren, wurde Johann Gottfried am 27. Februar 1711 getauft. Alsbald erkannte man in dem Jungen eine hohe Auffassungsgabe, so dass man ihn 1724 auf die Fürstenschule nach Grimma schickte. Zurückgekehrt nach Wittenberg begann er ein Studium der Philosophie, an der Universität" Leucorea" Wittenberg. Am 30. April 1734 erwarb er sich den Magistertitel der Philosophie und absolvierte dann ein medizinisches Studium. Am 19. November 1736 promovierte er zum Lizentiaten und Doktor der Medizin, habilitierte sich an der Universität Göttingen, wo er 1738 zum außerordentlichen Professor und 1739 zum ordentlichen Professor ernannt wurde, wurde später Hallers Nachfolger in der Chirurgie und 1755 wurde er Leibarzt des Landgrafen Wilhelm VIII. von Hessen-Kassel. Seine gründliche mathematische Vorbildung ist entscheidend geworden für seine Entwicklung als einer der großen medizinischen Gelehrten seiner Zeit. Als Jatrophysiker, der biologische und pathologische Phänomene rein physikalisch zu deuten versuchte, beschäftigte er sich unter anderem mit rechtsmedizinischen Studien. Mit Untersuchungen zur Eustachischen Klappe und über das Spiralblatt der Schnecke, hat er sich einen Namen in der Medizingeschichte erworben. Auch nach seinem Tode wurde ein Teil seiner Arbeiten veröffentlicht.CONSPECTVS PROGRAMMATUM.

        Holograph Document Signed ("Thomas Knolton")

      Ashford, Windham County, Connecticut, 1769. Very Good. Bifolium. Approximately 8" x 12". Laid paper with applied paper seal. Old folds, light stain at horizontal fold, very good. Signed on the final page by a number of people including Thomas Knolton (later known as Thomas Knowlton).The 1769 document records a Sheriff's Jury or committee from Windham County in Connecticut impaneled to determine the route of a new highway and to determine if any landholders be compensated for damages as a result. The document enumerates the members of the jury - first men of Windham, and then several men, including Knowlton, "...all of Ashford, as a jury to lay out the within mentioned highway." Much of the document is taken up with the physical details of the highway, but concludes that the jury has determined "...that the Advantage, to each Man's Land (through which this High Way is laid out) is equal to the Disadvantage, therefore assess no Damages." Following the text, Signed by all in the Jury, ending with Knowlton. Although not directly related to the coming War, among the other signers of this document are Sampson Keyes, whose son John served in the Knowlton Rangers as a Lieutenant; Nathaniel Webb, who served as an Lieutenant under Knowlton in Durkee's Regiment (before the Rangers were detached from it); Hezikiah Huntington, who made and repaired firearms for the American troops, and others easily traceable to the Revolutionary cause.Knowlton was a veteran of the French and Indian War who participated in several battles including the Battle of Ft. Ticonderoga and the British invasion of Havana, and who resided in Ashford in Windham County, where he was named a Selectman of the town in 1773. When news of Lexington reached Knowlton he joined his local militia, the Ashford Company, as part of the Fifth Regiment Connecticut Militia. Knowlton was unanimously chosen as Captain. For his bravery at the Battle of Bunker Hill he was promoted by Congress to Major.During the Siege of Boston in 1776, Knowlton was sent by Washington to burn the remaining buildings at the base of Bunker Hill, and to capture the British guard. Knowlton accomplished this mission without firing a shot or losing a man. In August, Knowlton was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and put in command of an elite hand picked independent corps which was under the direct command of Washington. This unit was the first unit to be designated as "Rangers", or "Knowlton's Rangers." Among the members of the unit was Captain Nathan Hale. This was considered the first organized American intelligence unit and was utilized by Washington to scout the enemy's position in dangerous circumstances. Knowlton is generally considered the first American intelligence officer.

        Holograph Document Signed ("Thomas Knolton")

      Ashford, Windham County, Connecticut. 1769. Bifolium. Approximately 8" x 12". Laid paper with applied paper seal. Old folds, light stain at horizontal fold, very good. Signed on the final page by a number of people including Thomas Knolton (later known as Thomas Knowlton).The 1769 document records a Sheriff's Jury or committee from Windham County in Connecticut impaneled to determine the route of a new highway and to determine if any landholders be compensated for damages as a result. The document enumerates the members of the jury - first men of Windham, and then several men, including Knowlton, "...all of Ashford, as a jury to lay out the within mentioned highway." Much of the document is taken up with the physical details of the highway, but concludes that the jury has determined "...that the Advantage, to each Man's Land (through which this High Way is laid out) is equal to the Disadvantage, therefore assess no Damages." Following the text, Signed by all in the Jury, ending with Knowlton. Although not directly related to the coming War, among the other signers of this document are Sampson Keyes, whose son John served in the Knowlton Rangers as a Lieutenant; Nathaniel Webb, who served as an Lieutenant under Knowlton in Durkee's Regiment (before the Rangers were detached from it); Hezikiah Huntington, who made and repaired firearms for the American troops, and others easily traceable to the Revolutionary cause.Knowlton was a veteran of the French and Indian War who participated in several battles including the Battle of Ft. Ticonderoga and the British invasion of Havana, and who resided in Ashford in Windham County, where he was named a Selectman of the town in 1773. When news of Lexington reached Knowlton he joined his local militia, the Ashford Company, as part of the Fifth Regiment Connecticut Militia. Knowlton was unanimously chosen as Captain. For his bravery at the Battle of Bunker Hill he was promoted by Congress to Major.During the Siege of Boston in 1776, Knowlton was sent by Washington to burn the remaining buildings at the base of Bunker Hill, and to capture the British guard. Knowlton accomplished this mission without firing a shot or losing a man. In August, Knowlton was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and put in command of an elite hand picked independent corps which was under the direct command of Washington. This unit was the first unit to be designated as "Rangers", or "Knowlton's Rangers." Among the members of the unit was Captain Nathan Hale. This was considered the first organized American intelligence unit and was utilized by Washington to scout the enemy's position in dangerous circumstances. Knowlton is generally considered the first American intelligence officer.
