"Le Boursier, a prominent Parisian midwife, first published the present work in 1759 without illustrations. The success of the book encouraged her to have later editions illustrated by Jean Robert ... The 1769 edition was the first book on midwifery to appear with plates printed in multiple colors. Robert, a pupil of Le Blon, is known to have illustrated only three books and this was his most copiously illustrated book. The finely applied colors often appear to be hand-painted rather than printed." (Heirs of Hippocrates 919). The book is quite rare with only two copies recorded at auction in the past 50 years. Very Good.

        Le Pornographe, ou Idées d'un honnête-homme sur un projet de règlement pour les prostituées, Propre à prévenir les Malheurs qu'occasionne le Publicisme des Femmes: Avec des notes historiques et justificatives.

      - Londres, Jean Nourse (.). Et se trouve à Paris, chez Delalain, 1769. In-8, demi veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné de caissons fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièce de titre de maroquin bordeaux, tranches rouges (rel. moderne dans le goût de l'époque), 368 p. titre et faux titre inclus. Rare édition originale de premier tirage, avec le nom du librairie "Delalain" sur le titre. Par peur du scandale et de la censure, celui-ci ne voulut pas que son nom figurât sur cet ouvrage et le fit retirer des tirages suivant. Vaste projet de réformes de la prostitution dans lequel Restif propose de créer une sorte d'ordre religieux consacré à Vénus. Les établissements ("Parthénions"), administrés par l'État, pourront contenir trente mille sujets qui composeraient la communauté (le "projet de règlement" en 45 articles figure aux p. 111-171). "Ce projet est enchâssé dans un petit roman en forme de lettres, vif et agréable (.). La seconde partie est remplie d'une érudition immense sur les lieux de débauche (.). Il y a des peintures très voluptueuses, des situations chaudes" (Bachaumont cité par Rives Childs, p. 16). L'ouvrage inspira à Joseph II les règlements sur la prostitution qu'il appliqua dans ses Etats. Exemplaire bien complet des 2 faux-titres ("Idées singulières", première [seconde] partie), conforme à collation donnée par Rives Childs (les p. 5 et 6 n'existent pas). (Gay, III, 814. Rives Childs, p. 210). Très bon exemplaire, intérieur très frais. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: A, Cruden, J. Buckland [et al.], 1769. 4to, pp. [12] & unpaginated lexicon in triple column; engraved frontispiece portrait; contemporary full calf, neatly rebacked, red morocco label on spine; some spotting but generally very good and sound. A massive and respected work by a man whose "biblical labours have justly made his name a household word among the English-speaking peoples." Disappointed in his "expectation of profit from his great task his mind became so unhinged that he was confined for ten weeks in a madhouse in Bethnal Green, from which he escaped by cutting through the bedstead to which he was chained" (see DNB). The book is a landmark and remains in print to this very day.

Georges Cuvier gilt als wissenschaftlicher Begründer der Paläontologie und machte die vergleichende Anatomie zu einer Forschungsdisziplin. Er untersuchte die Anatomie verschiedener Lebewesen und verglich systematisch alle Ähnlichkeiten und Unterschiede. Diese Studien ermöglichten ihm, aus der Existenz einiger Knochen die Gestalt anderer Knochen und die zugehörigen Muskeln abzuleiten. So gelang ihm schließlich die Rekonstruktion eines ganzen Tierkörpers aus nur wenigen Teilen.

        Lettres Chérakéesiennes mises en François de la traduction Italienne. Par J.J. Rufus, Sauvage Européen.

      Rome: de l'Imprimerie du Sacré Collége de la Propagande..., 1769. Octavo, bookplate with coat-of-arms; an appealing copy in original quarter sheep and plain grey boards, First edition, based on the Lettres Iroquoises of 1752: a wonderful imaginary voyage, and a rare example of such a tale told from the perspective of a visitor to Europe, in this case a Native American Iroquois.Maubert de Gouvest (1721-1767) was a diverse and prolific French writer, known for his irreverent style, and for a vast oeuvre which often appears both anonymously and under fictitious imprints. This text is a wonderful example. Originally published as Lettres Iroquoises in 1752, the Lettres Chérakéesiennes reprints and revises thirty-six of the original text's forty-three letters with a new title and the marvellous fake Roman imprint and papal imprimatur "par Ordre en forme de Brevêt de sa Sainteté Clement XIII" - a particularly good joke as Pope Clement had only recently put D'Alembert and Diderot on the Index for their contributions to the Encyclopédie.Throughout, the text is a thinly veiled attack on French society, as the Iroquois "Igli" dissects French religion and society. While Igli's letters to his chief express wonder and pleasure at his visit to Europe, they also highlight the oddity of many French customs, particularly regarding religion and law. Confronted with this, Igli often appeals to the 'Great Spirit' as an infallible guide - something which he sees as sadly lacking amongst the Europeans.With the bookplate of the Duc de Richelieu. Some wear at spine.

        PLUTARCH’S LIVES [In Six Volumes: Translated from the Greek. With Notes, Explanatory and Critical, From Dacier and Others. To Which is Prefix’d the LIFE OF PLUTARCH , Written by Dryden]

      Dublin: J. Williams in Skinner Row (but possibly by J & R Tonson in London, for the Irish market), 1769. 6 volumes. A rare and very attractive printing. With a beautiful engraved frontispiece to volume one, each “life” is accompanied with a large engraved portrait in oval, in the style of a Roman broach or coin, for those few for whom no reliable likeness was available, empty frames have been cleverly placed where the portrait would otherwise be located. 8vo, bound in handsome contemporary polished calf over correct 18th century marbled boards, the spines with double gilt rules bordering the raised bands, one compartment with red morocco lettering label gilt and one compartment with volume numbers on contrasting green morocco labels in gilt. lxiv, 382; 468; 468; 431; 467; 245, index pp. A fine and handsome set in full period state with no sophistication or restoration. Some light age wear to the edges, but a very well preserved set, clean internally, crisp and unpressed and the bindings in good order. A RARELY SEEN PRINTING, AND A VERY PLEASING SET, HANDSOMELY BOUND AT THE TIME. Plutarch continues to be one of our most important sources for the history of Greece and Rome and is also well-known as a primary source for the plots of Shakespeare's classical plays and for numerous passages in the non-Roman ones. The great bard relied almost exclusively on Plutarch’s writings for the historical background of ancient Rome. The Lives of Plutarch (ca. AD 50 - ca. 125) was one of the most influential works of antiquity, and was the most popular work at the time of the Renaissance. The Lives illustrated the moral character of Plutarch's subjects through a series of anecdotes; in England they served as a source-book for Shakespeare's Roman plays, a virtual gold mine of plots, as well as providing numerous passages in the non-Roman ones. The Bard relied almost exclusively on Plutarch’s writings for the historical background of ancient Rome. Later Plutarch provided the source for Otway and Addison. They also served as a model for Isaac Walton's “Lives” (1670); Dryden gave a pioneer analysis of their style and structure in his Life of Plutarch (1683), and in America the Founding Fathers turned to them for models of republican virtue. In this monumental historical work, Plutarch relates biographies of 50 Greek and Roman luminaries, twenty-three pairs of lives (nineteen of them with comparisons attached) and also four single lives. They include lives of Solon, Themistocles, Aristeides, Pericles, Alcibiades, Nicias, Demosthenes, Philopoemen, Timoleon, Dion, Alexander, Pyrrhus, Marius, Sulla, Pompey, Mark Antony, Brutus, Julius Caesar, and Cicero. Of the later Roman emperors, only the lives of Galba and Otho survive. Plutarch's object is to bring out the moral character in each case, rather than to relate the political events of his time; hence his full treatment of the subject's education and natural disposition, and his relation of anecdotes calculated to reveal the nature of the man, 'a light occasion, a word, or some sport' which 'makes men's natural dispositions more plain than the famous battles won, in which ten thousand men may be killed'. Although Plutarch may have at times distorted the truth in order to exemplify virtue or vice, in general he is as reliable as his sources, and always very valuable. He shows no bias or unfairness in his treatment of Greeks and Romans, no flattery of the now dominant power of Rome or vanity in the past glories of his own nation. He believed in the compatibility of Rome the ruler and Greece the educator. The Lives contain, besides interesting anecdotes, many memorable historical passages: the catastrophe in the Peloponnesian War of the Athenian expedition to Syracuse (Nicias), Pompey's defeat by Caesar and subsequent murder the death of the younger Cato, and the suicide of Otho. There are also great battle-pieces: the victory of the Roman general Marius over the German Cimbri, the victory of the Corinthian general Timoleon over the Carthaginians at the river Crimisus, the siege of Syracuse (when Archimedes was there) by the Roman Marcellus; and striking descriptions of a quite different kind, of the happy state of Italy under Numa, of Sicily pacified by Timoleon, and of Cleopatra sailing up the river Cydnus on her barge to visit Anthony. A fine example of this Irish issue. The books appear the work of the Tonsons in London and prove why the Tonson printing house was one of finest of its day. We believe that this printing was done by them for J. Williams in Dublin based on comparative study. This scholarly and beautiful printing also contains the life of Plutarch, a chronological table from 1055 BC to 71 AD, notations throughout and a very extensive index.

        EXPERIMENTS AND OBSERVATIONS ON ELECTRICITY, MADE AT PHILADELPHIA IN AMERICA...TO WHICH ARE ADDED, LETTERS AND PAPERS ON PHILOSOPHICAL SUBJECTS. THE WHOLE CORRECTED, METHODIZED, IMPROVED, AND NOW FIRST COLLECTED INTO ONE VOLUME, AND ILLUSTRATED WITH COPPER PLATES

      London: Printed for David Henry, 1769. [2],iv,[2],496[i.e. 504],[16]pp. including leaf of errata and advertisement "concerning this fourth edition," plus seven engraved plates (two folding). Half title. Quarto. Original full calf, spine gilt ruled, red morocco label. Corners bumped, hinges rubbed, small gouge to rear board. Bookplate on front pastedown, contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Internally clean. A very nice, near fine, copy in original condition. The fourth, first collected, and by far most desirable edition, containing for the first time complete notes on all the experiments, as well as correspondence between Peter Collinson, Franklin, and other collaborators. Franklin began experimenting with electricity as early as 1745, demonstrating the electrical property of lightning and inventing the lightning conductor. This volume includes summaries of his work with Leyden jars, charged clouds, and lightning rods, as well as his famous kite and key experiment. In addition to the electrical experiments it contains the important discovery of the course of storms over North America and other important meteorological observations. "America's first great scientific contribution" - Howes. The work caused a sensation in the scientific world when first published in 1751, and ranked in the eyes of many of Franklin's contemporaries as far beyond any of his political achievements. Harvard and Yale awarded him honorary degrees in 1753; he received the highest award of the Royal Society, the Copley Medal, the same year; and he was elected to the Society in 1756, the first American to be so honored. This fourth edition is the first complete edition of the original work. The earlier editions were issued in separately published parts. Franklin edited this new one- volume edition himself, significantly revising the text, adding for the first time a number of his own philosophical letters and papers, introducing footnotes, correcting errors, and adding an index. This copy includes the errata/advertisement leaf which is often lacking. HOWES F320, "b." PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 199. SABIN 25506. FORD 307. MILESTONES OF SCIENCE 69.

        Abbrégé de l'art des accouchemens dans lequel on donne les préceptes nécessaires pour le mettre heureusement en pratique & auquel on a joint plusieurs observations intéressantes sur des cas singuliers.

      - Chez Pierre Toussaints, A Saintes 1769, in-8 (13,5x20cm), x ; 184pp. (4), relié. - In primo luogo illustrato nelle figure 25 colore intaglio P. Chappare incisa da J. Robert e un ritratto dell'autore; dopo l'edizione originale pubblicata nel 1759. Il 12-libro è stato stampato in diverse città di provincia (la nostra in Saintes, Charente Maritime) e distribuito o venduto agli studenti. Il legame del tempo in piena pelle di pecora marrone maculato. Torna con cinque reti nervose decorate, scatole e pinnacoli floreali dorati, e un pezzo di pelle di pecora come bionda. Coaching freddo Net plats.Toutes bordi rossi. Tre angoli un po '. Carta leggermente ingiallito. Le tavole che illustrano questo libro sono state incise su rame da J. Robert, uno studente di Jacob Christoph Leblon (1667-1741), che ha sviluppato una tecnica di incisione a colori mezzatinta che richiede tre o quattro piatti con i colori primari, prefigurando il colore moderno. Questa tecnica è stata sviluppata dalla teoria della decomposizione del colore di Newton. Questo libro, vittima del suo grande successo, è stato spesso ristampato per ordine del re che era una politica a favore della natalità. A tal fine, ha delegato la signora Du Coudray, l'ostetrica per la regina Maria de 'Medici nel regno di sviluppare corsi per ostetriche studenti della campagna e tutte le persone che volevano prendersi cura di questo art. Il nostro esemplare sembra essere appartenuto ad una delle ostetriche come evidenziato dalla sua ex-dono "manuale di istruzioni per l'uso di françoize Nesme fama jean gelaud [...] instruitte l'intervento del college Royalle basaçon di praticare nascita per ordine di steward contea franca del Vescovo l'anno 1779. " - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition illustrée de 25 figures en taille-douce en couleurs de Chapparre gravées par Robert et d'un portrait de l'auteur, parue après l'édition originale in-12 en 1759. L'ouvrage fut imprimé dans différentes villes de province (le nôtre à Saintes, en Charente Maritime) et vendu aux élèves.   Reliure de l'époque en pleine basane brune mouchetée. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de filets, caissons et fleurons floraux dorés, ainsi que d'une pièce de titre de basane blonde. Filet à froid en encadrement des plats. Toutes tranches rouges. Trois coins un peu émoussés. Papier légèrement jauni.   Les planches qui illustrent cet ouvrage ont été gravées sur cuivre par Jean Robert, élève de Jacob Christoph Leblon (1667-1741) qui mit au point une technique de gravure en couleurs à la manière noire nécessitant trois ou quatre plaques avec les couleurs primaires, préfigurant la quadrichromie moderne. Cette technique fut mise au point à partir de la théorie de la décomposition de la couleur de Newton. Cet ouvrage, victime de son très grand succès, fut très souvent réimprimé par ordre du Roi qui visait une politique nataliste. à cet effet, il délégua Madame Du Coudray, accoucheuse de la reine Marie de Médicis, dans tout le royaume afin de mettre en place des cours destinés aux élèves sages-femmes de la campagne et à toutes les personnes qui voulaient s'occuper de cet art.    Notre exemplaire semble avoir appartenu à l'une de ces sages-femmes comme en témoigne son ex-dono : « Livre d'instruction pour l'usage de françoize nesme fame de jean gelaud [...] instruitte au college royalle de chirurgie de basaçon pour pratiquer les accouchement par ordonnance de Mgr l'intendant de franche comté l'an 1779. »

Godart Septicologie ou dissertation sur les antiseptiques ... A l'époque seules les expériences de Pringle et de Gabert étaient connues. Le médecin britannique Sir John Pringle (1707-82), avait en effet publié en 1750, trois articles sur les antiseptiques qui lui valurent la médaille Copley.

      - Chez Claude Philibert et Barthelemi Chirol, A geneve 1769, in-8 (11,5x20cm), xxvj (2) 427pp; (1) et (2) iv (2) 448pp., 2 volumes reliés. - Prima edizione, rara; infrazione viene pubblicato lo stesso giorno ad Amsterdam. Pieno di vitello biondo lucido e il periodo in marmo. Torna liscio decorato. Parti di numeri dei titoli e volume di marocchino rosso. Una piccola perdita di testa di volume I. Cinque angoli urtato. Attrito. Senza dubbio il più ambizioso e il più notevole Bonnet studio che gli valse il titolo di padre della biologia moderna. Questo lavoro di biologia teorica che attinge la sua origine in un pensiero multidisciplinare e assunzione Leibniz (l'immortalità dell'anima), sostiene che la Terra subisce disastri universali periodici che distruggono quasi tutta la vita e sopravvissuti a salire ogni volta un passo sulla scala dell'evoluzione. Bonnet fu il primo ad usare il termine evoluzione in un contesto biologico. Il libro delinea anche la psicologia sperimentale. Esiste in ogni essere germi che lo precedono e garantisce la sopravvivenza della specie, il Bonnet tesi annunciando le teorie e le scoperte di geni. Questa è la cecità in Bonnet porre fine agli esperimenti e ha invitato alla riflessione filosofica. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale, assez rare ; une contrefaçon est parue à la même date à Amsterdam. Reliure en plein veau blond glacé et marbré d'époque. Dos lisses ornés. Pièces de titre et tomaisons de maroquin rouge. Un petit manque en tête du tome I. Cinq coins émoussés. Frottements. Bon exemplaire. Sans aucun doute la plus ambitieuse et la plus remarquable étude de Bonnet qui lui valut l'appellation de père de la biologie moderne. Cette oeuvre de biologie théorique puisant sa source dans une réflexion multi-disciplinaire et son postulat chez Leibniz (l'immortalité de l'âme) prétend que la Terre subit périodiquement des catastrophes universelles qui détruisent presque toute vie et que les survivants montent chaque fois d'un degré sur l'échelle de l'évolution. Bonnet fut le premier à utiliser le terme d'évolution dans un contexte biologique. L'ouvrage préfigure également la psychologie expérimentale. Il existerait en chaque être des germes qui lui préexistent et assure la survie de l'espèce, la thèse de Bonnet annonçant les théories et découvertes des gènes.C'est la cécité qui chez Bonnet mit un arrêt aux expérimentations et l'engagea sur la voie de la réflexion philosophique.

        Traité Général des Pesches, et histoire des Poissons qu'elles fournissent, tant pour la subsistance des hommes, que pour plusieurs autres usages qui ont rapport aux arts et au commerce.

      Paris, Saillant & Nyon/ Desaint, 1769-1782. 4 volumes bound in 12. Folio (445 x 290mm). With 250 folding engraved plates. Later half calf, gilt ornamented spines with blue label. First edition. A rare complete copy of 'one of the finest works on fishing and fisheries in any language' (Westwood p. 82). This superbly illustrated work with large folding plates shows marine- as well as freshwater fishing, all kinds of fishing equipment, different types of fishing boats, as well as fishermen and their dresses of the various French regions. About half the plates show marine or freshwater fishes. Most of the plates have scenic backgrounds. Henri Louis Duhamel (1700-1782) was an exponent of the French enlightenment and wrote quite a number of books of scientific as well of economic interest. In 1732 he was appointed 'inspecteur généneral de la marine'./This large monument on fishes and fishing shows the enormous economic importance of this branch of industry. The publication was an integral part of the 'Descriptions des Arts et Métiers' and was often sold separately./"The scientific interests of Duhamel were broad. While he was concerned with the descriptions of the handicrafts of candle-making and the refining of sugar of those or the locksmith, the slater, and the maker of playing cards, and although we are likely impressed by the extensive treatise on fishes and commercial fishing which forms a part of the 'Descriptions', his fame rests perhaps largely upon his studies in agriculture and the allied field of forestry... Duhamel du Monceau presents a figure of the benign scientist such as one encounters all too rarely in cultural history" (Cole & Watts,'The handicrafts of France as recorded in the Descriptions des Arts et Métiers 1761-1788', pp. 12-13)./Complete copies should have 250 plates. Our copy has one plate double and 2 variant plates, these are not included in the total count of 250 plates. Nissen quotes 248 in error. //Nissen, 'Schöne Fischbücher' 52; Dean 338; Cole & Watts pp. 28-29.

        The history and adventures of an atom. In two volumes [First Issue]

      London Printed for Robinson and Roberts MDCCXLIX [but 1769] First Issue (with the erroneous date 1749 on the title page). 12mo: viii,227;[ii],190pp. Half title in Volume II only. Newly bound by Fitterer in period-style speckled calf, spine in six compartments divided by raised bands ruled in gilt, with green morocco letter piece gilt, top edge gilt, end papers renewed. A nearly pristine copy, the pages very lightly and evenly toned. Rothschild 1923. ESTC Citation No. T55310. Fine Although Adventures of an Atom is generally accepted as by Smollett, there is no conclusive proof that he wrote it. "There is no reference to it in his letters or those of his correspondents, but it was attributed to him in the London Chronicle (8&11 April 1769). With echoes of the humour of Rabelais, it is a rumbustious, at times scatological, satire on British political life, transposed to Japan. [The 'atom' is the supposed narrator, a witness to the events and somehow able to communicate them to modern listeners. ] It may be that Smollett, sensing that his remaining days were few, revived his vituperative energies to target enemies, including Pitt, Cumberland, Mansfield, and Wilkes. If his, it was a pungent valediction. He took his leave of Hume in an affectionate letter of 31 August 1768 before going into 'a perpetual exile' (Letters, 136)." (ODNB) A Key to the pseudonyms is given by Thomas Seccombe in the bibliographical introduction to vol. XII of Smollett's Works.

        Relación del Viage... al descubrimento del estrecho nuevo de San Vicente, que hoy es nombrado de Maire, y reconocimiento del de Magallanes...

      Cadiz: Manuel Espinosa, 1766 or, 1769. Small quarto, with a folding map; contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered by hand. Second edition, itself very scarce while the first edition has traditionally been seen as almost unfindable. 'This was the first circumnavigation of Tierra del Fuego. The whole voyage, out and back, had taken only nine months and twelve days: 'a period which, in the present state of navigation, would be reckoned very short for the performance of such a voyage, and was then unprecedented' (Burney) - many a Dutch and English ship took longer just to reach Cabo Virgines. The ships had never once separated, and except for one man hanged at Rio for plotting mutiny, there was not a single death. Rapid as the voyage was, it was not scamped; the Nodals brought back careful and clear sailing instructions, and paid unusual attention to tidal observations. Their conduct of the voyage was indeed a model of decision and efficiency; but they fell victims to the general slackness which was creeping over Spanish naval affairs: the Spain of Philip III was not that of Philip II' (Spate II, p. 26).This second edition has traditionally been the first procurable edition of this important book as the 1621 printing, notoriously difficult to find, was a famous rarity even in the 1860s when Sabin described it as "one of the rarest books of its class". The Hill catalogue (which surprisingly does not note this second edition) called it "one of the rarest books on voyages of the 17th century", and even Streeter had to settle for an incomplete copy. The first edition has almost never appeared complete on the market in modern times.The second part is new to this edition: separately paginated, it has its own title-page (Instruccion exacta, y util de las derrotas, y navegaciones, que se executan en todos tiempos en la America Septentrional... Sacala a luz D. Manuel de Echevelar... Año de 1753. Con Licencia: en Cadiz en la Real Imprenta de Marina, Calle de San Francisco).This landmark voyage of Pacific discovery cleared the way for future Spanish approaches to the Straits of Magellan and beyond. The voyage came about as the Spanish reflex reaction to the Dutch discovery of the Le Maire Strait (called San Vicente by the Spanish); it had been discovered by Le Maire and Schouten during their 1616 voyage in search of the Southern Continent. The Dutch success alarmed the Spanish - but they were also interested in a safer means of passage into the South Sea; they therefore sent out two caravels under the command of the Nodal brothers, to report on the Le Maire and Schouten discoveries. In excellent condition in original binding.
