"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.

        Instructions adressées par sa Majesté l'Impératrice de toutes les Russies à la commission établie pour travailler à l'exécution du projet d'un nouveau code de Lois, traduit de l'Allemand [par J. Rodolphe Frey des Landres]

      à Pétersbourg, 1769, in 12, de 286pp., demi-veau moucheté époque, dos lisse entièrement orné, p. de t. bleue, très lég. mouillure claire en marge de qq. ff. sinon bel exemplaire. Edition originale en français des célèbres "instructions" (ou Nakaz) de Catherine II éditées d'abord en russe et en allemand à Saint Pétersbourg en 1767, mais non mises dans le commerce. Désireuse de codifier les lois de l'Empire, l'impératrice convoqua une «Commission du Code» pour laquelle elle rédigera ses "Instructions". Elles sont en grande partie tirée de Montesquieu et de Beccaria. La Commission législative échouera, on le sait, à rédiger les lois fondamentales attendues; mais le règne de l'impératrice, n'en marquera pas moins un «progrès stupéfiant» dans la vie politique de la Russie. Voltaire possédait d'ailleurs une traduction française manuscrite des "Instructions", texte d'une importance exceptionnelle, que lui avait adressé expressément la Grande Catherine en 1769, et dont le philosophe se servit à de multiples reprises dans ses écrits polémiques. ¶ Barbier I, 932 - INED n°1005 "Considérations politiques et économiques de la Sémiramis du Nord "despote éclairé" ayant subi l'influence française..."

Bonnet was the first to use the term evolution in a biological context. The book also foreshadows experimental psychology.

        Napoleon Bonaparte auf St. Helena oder Briefe, geschrieben am Bord des brittischen Lienienschiffs Northumberland und aus St. Helena, worin das Benehmen Napoleon Buonapartes und seines Gefolges während der Reise, und in der Zeit der Anwesenheit des ihn begleitenden Verfassers auf dieser Insel, treu geschildert und erzählt wird von William Warden, Wundarzt am Bord des Northumberlands aus dem Nachlaß Gerhard Löwenthalsehr selten !!!!!.

      halbleder 2. Aufl. Goldgepr. HLdr. d. Zt. m. rotem Rückenschild. 215 S. Minimal berieben, sonst tadellos aus dem Nachlaß Gerhard LöwenthalNapoleon Bonaparte, als Kaiser Napoleon I. (französisch Napoléon Bonaparte oder Napoléon Ier * 15. August 1769 in Ajaccio auf Korsika als Napoleone Buonaparte[1] 5. Mai 1821 in Longwood House auf St. Helena im Südatlantik), war ein französischer General, Staatsmann und Kaiser.Aus korsischer Familie stammend, stieg Bonaparte während der Französischen Revolution in der Armee auf. Er erwies sich als ein militärisches Talent ersten Ranges. Vor allem die Feldzüge in Italien und in Ägypten machten ihn populär und zu einem politischen Hoffnungsträger. Dies ermöglichte ihm, durch den Staatsstreich des 18. Brumaire VIII (9. November 1799) die Macht in Frankreich zu übernehmen. Zunächst von 1799 bis 1804 als Erster Konsul der Französischen Republik und anschließend bis 1814 als Kaiser der Franzosen stand er einem halbdiktatorischen Regime mit plebiszitären Elementen vor.Durch verschiedene Reformen etwa die der Justiz durch den Code Civil oder die der Verwaltung hat Napoleon die staatlichen Strukturen Frankreichs bis in die Gegenwart hinein geprägt. Außenpolitisch errang er, gestützt auf die Armee, zeitweise die Herrschaft über weite Teile Kontinentaleuropas. Er war daher ab 1805 auch König von Italien und von 1806 bis 1813 Protektor des Rheinbundes. Durch die von ihm initiierte Auflösung des Heiligen Römischen Reiches wurde die staatliche Gestaltung Mitteleuropas zu einem zentralen Problem des 19. Jahrhunderts. Hatte er anfangs selbst noch den Nationalstaatsgedanken außerhalb Frankreichs verbreitet, erschwerte dessen teils konservative Umdeutung in Spanien, in Deutschland und schließlich auch in Russland die Aufrechterhaltung der napoleonischen Ordnung in Europa.Der katastrophale Ausgang des Feldzugs gegen Russland, dort als Vaterländischer Krieg bezeichnet, führte letztlich zum Sturz Napoleons. Nach einer kurzen Phase der Verbannung auf Elba kehrte er für hundert Tage an die Macht zurück. In der Schlacht bei Waterloo wurde er endgültig besiegt und zuletzt bis zu seinem Lebensende auf die Insel St. Helena verbannt. Die Reise auf die Insel Elba dauerte vom 25. bis 27. April 1814. Da Anschläge auf seine Person befürchtet wurden, trug Napoleon als Vorsichtsmaßnahme und gleichsam als Verkleidung den Mantel des russischen Generals Schuwalow.[21] Er war nun der Herrscher über ein Eiland mit 10.000 Einwohnern und einer Armee von 1.000 Mann. Er begann zwar eine umfangreiche Reformtätigkeit, die ihn als ehemaligen Beherrscher Europas aber nicht ausfüllen konnte. Durch ein Netz von Agenten wusste er genau, dass es in Frankreich nach der Restauration unter Ludwig XVIII. eine weit verbreitete Unzufriedenheit gab. Ermutigt von diesen Meldungen, kehrte Napoleon am 1. März 1815 nach Frankreich zurück. Die Soldaten, die ihn hätten aufhalten sollen, liefen zu ihm über. Am 19. März 1815 floh König Ludwig aus den Tuilerien. Zwar wurde die Verfassung des Kaiserreichs teilweise liberalisiert, aber die Zustimmung zum wiederhergestellten napoleonischen Regime blieb begrenzt.Aufgeschreckt von den Ereignissen in Frankreich, entschieden sich Österreich, Russland, Großbritannien und Preußen daraufhin auf dem Wiener Kongress zum militärischen Eingreifen. Am 25. März erneuerten sie ihre Allianz von 1814.Trotz aller Schwierigkeiten gelang es Napoleon, eine gut ausgerüstete Armee aus 125.000 erfahrenen Soldaten auszuheben. Er ließ eine provisorische Regierung unter Marschall Davout in Paris zurück und marschierte gegen die Allianz. Wie gewohnt, plante Bonaparte, die Gegner nacheinander zu schlagen.Anfangs gelang es ihm bei Charleroi, einen Keil zwischen die britische Armee unter Wellington und die preußischen Truppen unter Blücher zu treiben. Am 16. Juni schlug er die Verbündeten in der Schlacht bei Quatre-Bras und der Schlacht bei Ligny.Am 18. Juni 1815 griff Napoleon die alliierte Armee von Wellington nahe dem belgischen Ort Waterloo an. Wellington gelang es, die günstige Stellung gegen alle französischen Angriffe im Wesentlichen zu halten. Aus dieser Lage ist sein Ausspruch überliefert: Ich wünschte es wäre Nacht oder die Preußen kämen. Tatsächlich kamen die preußischen Truppen unter Marschall Blücher den Briten zur Hilfe und Napoleon wurde geschlagen.Das Ende dieser Schlacht bedeutet faktisch das Ende der Herrschaft der hundert Tage. Bei seiner Rückkehr nach Paris trat Napoleon am 22. Juni 1815 zurück, nachdem er bei Parlament und ehemaligen Getreuen jegliche Unterstützung verloren hatte. Weder die Hoffnung auf eine Emigration nach Amerika noch auf politisches Asyl in Großbritannien erfüllten sich, stattdessen wurde Napoleon auf Beschluss der Alliierten nach St. Helena im Südatlantik verbannt.[22] Am 8. August ging der ehemalige Kaiser mit seinen Begleitern an Bord des Schiffes, das ihn in den Südatlantik bringen sollte. Am 18. Oktober wurde die Insel erreicht. Verbannung, das Ende auf St. Helena und Aufbahrung [Bearbeiten]Auf der britischen Insel St. Helena wurde Bonaparte und seinen wenigen Begleitern der Wohnsitz des Gouverneurs Longwood House zugewiesen. Nach Napoleons Willen hielten die Franzosen die Illusion eines kaiserlichen Hofstaates aufrecht. Bonaparte schrieb seine Memoiren. Im Laufe der Zeit verschlechterte sich der Gesundheitszustand Napoleons zusehends, bis er schließlich am 5. Mai 1821 starb. Sein Leichnam wurde noch am selben Tag obduziert. Der englische Kapitän Frederick Marryat fertigte eine Skizze des Leichnams an, die erhalten geblieben und im Londoner National Maritime Museum ausgestellt ist. Skizze von Napoleons Leichnam, Bildunterschrift: 'Napoleon Bonaparte as he appeared on Sunday morning on the 6th of May, 14 hours after his death, laying upon the bed that he died in.' Napoleons Sarkophag im InvalidendomDer Leichnam wurde am 9. Mai in einem vierfachen Sarg beigesetzt. In der medizinischen Fachliteratur ist überzeugend dargelegt, dass Napoleon an fortgeschrittenem Magenkrebs mit Lymphknotenbefall verstarb. Aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach war eine durch das Karzinom ausgelöste starke Magenblutung die unmittelbare Todesursache. Neue Forschungsergebnisse legen darüber hinaus nahe, dass der bösartige Tumor nicht, wie früher vermutet, familiär bedingt war bis heute sind die Todesursachen anderer Familienmitglieder nicht geklärt. Vielmehr sei die Erkrankung auf eine Infektion mit dem Bakterium Helicobacter pylori zurückzuführen. Daneben gab es weitere Vermutungen über die Todesursache.[23] Eine davon lautet, dass Napoleon sukzessiv durch Arsen vergiftet worden sein könnte, zum Beispiel von General Montholon oder durch die arsenhaltige Farbe (Schweinfurter Grün) in seinen Tapeten.[24] Mit letzter Gewissheit werden sich die genauen Ursachen seines Todes heute wohl nicht mehr klären lassen.[25] Doch eine italienische Forschergruppe kam zu dem Ergebnis, dass Napoleon nicht vergiftet wurde (zumindest nicht absichtlich). Durch eine Haaranalyse wurde festgestellt, dass in allen betrachteten Lebensphasen ähnlich hohe Gehalte des giftigen Metalls im Körper vorhanden waren.[26]Nach seinem Tod setzten sich die Bonapartisten für die Thronansprüche der Familie Bonaparte ein. Sie trugen wesentlich zum Aufstieg Napoleons III. bei und hatten noch nach dessen Sturz auf das Heer und die Beamtenschaft großen Einfluss. Erst in den 1880er Jahren verlor der Bonapartismus an Bedeutung.Fast zwanzig Jahre nach seinem Tod wurde Napoleon Bonapartes Leichnam am 15. Oktober 1840 exhumiert. Auf der Fregatte Belle Poule wurden die sterblichen Überreste zurück nach Frankreich gebracht und in den Pariser Invalidendom überführt. Er ist dort seit dem 15. Dezember 1840 in einem Sarkophag aufgebahrt.(wikipedia)

The History of England is undoubtedly the most popular work and was a great success of the philosopher David Hume, the father of philosophical empiricism and its importance in the history of philosophy is the measure of Descartes France. The story could not but interest the philosopher effect since it is an unparalleled amount of experience, as such, it is a must for those seeking knowledge; the historian is an empiricist, since can not simply perceive the causal links between facts and events, it is constrained in its vision to design a movement. However, for Hume, there is no way to conceptualize the history and structure typically follows the chronology of events, it is a story provided detailed and England, which extends from the arrival of the Romans in Revolution of 1688; it is divided into three historic and dynastic contemporary: the house of Plantagenet, the Stuarts and the Tudors. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

[Paris, 1818?]. 4to (23 x 18.5 cm) Letter in black ink on laid paper, in Humboldt's somewhat cramped but still legible hand. Formerly folded for posting, with the address written on the otherwise blank final page and with traces of a paper seal.

      - An autograph letter, signed, from the great German naturalist and geographer Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) to Vice Admiral Elisabeth Paul Edouard Chevalier de Rossel (1765-1829), director of the Paris Académie des Science's Dépôt des Cartes and himself a distinguished cartographer. Humbolt asks his permission to borrow the new Spanish chart of the estuary of the Rio Magdalena, east of Carthagena in South America, because he was correcting proofs of his own map of the region, engraved for him by (Ambroise) Tardieu ("helas! pour 3000 francs"). This is map no. 24 in his Atlas géographique et physiques des régiones equinoxiales de Nouveau Continent, published in the years 1814 to 1834. He wished to keep the Dépôt's map for two or three days. Formerly folded for posting and with a few small marginal spots, but further in fine condition.

        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.

        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.

Although she never took up feminism, she was nevertheless an early and successful historian who also happened to be female. Her work is relatively hard to find. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .

        Collection of five views of Russian and Siberian Cities].

      Imp. Akad. Nauk Skt. Peterburg -1771 1769 - Five views on four sheets, including Vue de la ville de Kokchajsk du côté de la Wolga (34 x 43 cm; sheet 49 x 59 cm); Vue de la ville de Sinbirsk au nord-est (35 x 45 cm; sheet 48.5 x 60 cm); Vue de la ville de Mangasei, Vue de la ville de Kousneszk (two views on one plate 49 x 36 cm; sheet 59.5 x 48.5 cm); Vue de la ville de Pénze sur la Soura du côté du nord-est (19.5 x 45 cm; sheet 24.5 x 59.5 cm), with captions in Russian and French, printed on Dutch handmade paper watermarked C & I Honig IV; central fold, scratches to surface and spotting to Vue de la ville de Kousneszk. A collection of the earliest views of the Russian cities on the Volga river and in Siberia engraved by Russian masters. These views are part of the series that included in total 34 prints. Their publication spanned almost forty years from the creation of the first drawings until the issue of the prints, and involved in the process seven artists and twelve Russian engravers. The cities perspectives were drawn on the spot between 1733 and 1766 during two great expeditions; the originals were later corrected and re-worked from 1748 to 1768 before being printed at the Academy from 1769 to 1771. The view of Mangazey offered here and of other Siberian cities from this series are based on the drawings made during the Great Northern Expedition (1733–1743) sent on the order of the Empress Anna Ioanovna. Under the leadership of Vitus Bering the expedition had to map the eastern reaches of Siberia, and if possible to continue onto the western shores of North America to explore and map them as well. The views of towns encountered on the way, including Novgorod, Tver, Kazan, Tobolsk and Yakutsk were drawn by the expedition artists J.C. Berckhan and J.W. Lursenius, who completed twenty eight cities prospects. The delays in passing the drawings to the Engraving Chamber and disruptions in the engraving process meant the engraving plates were not finished until 1771. The twelve views of the cities in the European part of Russia, including Kokshaysk, Sinbirsk, Kuznetsk and Penza offered here, are based on the original drawings by Alexandr Ivanovich Svechin (end of 1720s – 1796). The colonel and artist headed the expedition to the Volga region in 1765 organised on the order of Catherine the Great to investigate oak forests in the Kazan province and potential of timber supply for the construction of Russia's naval fleet. With the help of a 'camera obscura' Svechin produced during this trip twenty-eight drawings, including fourteen views of the cities on the Volga river which Makhaev had to review following Catherine II's wish. The result of Makhaev's efforts was twelve amended versions of the cities prospects in which the artist corrected perspective inaccuracies and unified the composition. In December 1768 the drawings were finally sent to the Engraving Chamber of the Academy of Sciences. The engraved plates were sold individually and are exceptionally rare. We were able to trace only two copies comprising all 34 views, both in Russia – in the collections of the State Hermitage Museum and the State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg. Outside Russia the collection of these views was found only in the Eton library, where the copy, in a modern binding, is lacking one plate. ????????? ? ? «???????? ?????????? ? ????????? ???????». ????? ??????

        Partially printed Bill of Lading of the Royal Charlottes of cargo, Signed by Silvanus Jencks

      Mississippi, 1769. Old folds. THE CARGO THAT FED A SPANISH ARMY. Reading in part: "Shipped by the grace of God… in and upon the good Ship, called the Royall Charlotte whereof is Master under God for this recent voyage Silvanus Jencks and now riding at anchor in the Road to St. Eustasius and by Gods grace bound for Mississippy to lay Five hundred ninety Barrels of Flower, Thirty T---- of ships Bread, Twenty T---- of Rice, Twenty kegs of white Bread, five Hhds of Rum, fourpipes & fifty kegs of Brandy, four Hhds Claret, two puncheons of beer & two puncheons of Cyder in bottles, five cases of Frontignan Wine, five Casks hams & Twenty four Negroe Slaves…and are to be delivered… at the aforesaid, Port of Missisipi (the danger of the seas onely excepted) unto Mr. Oliver Pollock…" The Royal Charlotte is believed to be one of the 30 merchant vessels owned by Aaron Lopez (1731-1782), a Sephardic Jew born in Lisbon, Portugal, who came to Newport Rhode Island in 1752. Lopez quickly became a leading merchant in Newport and would go on to become its wealthiest citizen. Among his diverse business interests, he is credited with underwriting at least 21 slave ships between 1761 and 1774. The ship's captain chartered for the voyage from the free Dutch port of St. Eustatius to the Spanish port in New Orleans was Silvanus Jenckes (1746-1781), a Providence, Rhode Island ship's master who, In 1772, married Freelove Whipple Fenner, a young woman from a political family remembered in Rhode Island history for her beauty and her participation in the "Daughters of Liberty." Jenckes, like most seafaring New Englanders, would go on to become a privateer during the American Revolution but neither he nor his wife would live to see the end of the war. As a charter party, the goods on board the Royal Charlotte did not belong to the ship's owner but rather the "charter party," in this case, Mr. Oliver Pollock. Oliver Pollock (1737-1823) was born in County Tyrone, Ireland and arrived in 1760, settling in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Within two years he established himself as a merchant, trading mainly with the Spanish in the West Indies. He set up his headquarters in Havana, Cuba, where he became friends with the island's Governor General, Alejandro O'Reilly. Irish-born O'Reilly was one of the fabled "Wild Geese," soldiers who left Ireland to serve in the European armies of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. In April, 1769 O'Reilly was ordered to New Orleans to quell an uprising of Creole and German inhabitants who had deposed the Spanish Governor in response to government trade restrictions. O'Reilly arrived in August, with 2,000 troops and quickly restored order but soon realized he would have difficulties feeding and supplying his troops. Then, "To O'Reilly's great fortune, his old friend Oliver Pollock arrived at the port of New Orleans just in time on a ship with the very British name Royal Charlotte. O'Reilly was delighted to learn that the ship was full of flour…" (Independence Lost: Lives on the Edge of the American Revolution, DuVal, Kathleen. Random House Publishing Group, 2016). Instead of selling his flour at inflated market prices, Pollock sold them to O'Reilly at pre-rebellion cost. As a reward, Pollock was granted free trade privileges in Louisiana and relocated his headquarters to New Orleans, where he soon became one of its most successful businessmen. Pollock would later use his fortune to finance western operations of the Continental Army during the American Revolution. Given the timing and the items listed on this bill of lading, it is likely that this is the cargo of flour and goods that saved Alejandro O'Reilly and fed his army.

      Welche Dinge waren den Menschen im Barock heilig? Warum trugen sie Nachbildungen einer menschlichen Zunge als Amulett um den Hals? Warum versteckten sie im Ehebett geweihte Palmkätzchen? Diese und weitere Fragen zur materiellen Kultur des katholischen Sakramentalienwesens beantwortet dieser Band und entschlüsselt anhand der Vielfalt ""heiliger"" Dinge das subtile Wechselverhältnis zwischen gelehrter Theologie und gelebter Frömmigkeit im Barock. Autor: Dr. Christoph Kürzeder promovierte mit der vorliegenden Arbeit im Fach Pastoraltheologie an der Katholisch-Theologischen Fakultät der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.

        Partially printed Bill of Lading of the Royal Charlottes of cargo, Signed by Silvanus Jencks

      Mississippi, 1769. Old folds. THE CARGO THAT FED A SPANISH ARMY. Reading in part: "Shipped by the grace of God... in and upon the good Ship, called the Royall Charlotte whereof is Master under God for this recent voyage Silvanus Jencks and now riding at anchor in the Road to St. Eustasius and by Gods grace bound for Mississippy to lay Five hundred ninety Barrels of Flower, Thirty T---- of ships Bread, Twenty T---- of Rice, Twenty kegs of white Bread, five Hhds of Rum, fourpipes & fifty kegs of Brandy, four Hhds Claret, two puncheons of beer & two puncheons of Cyder in bottles, five cases of Frontignan Wine, five Casks hams & Twenty four Negroe Slaves...and are to be delivered... at the aforesaid, Port of Missisipi (the danger of the seas onely excepted) unto Mr. Oliver Pollock..." The Royal Charlotte is believed to be one of the 30 merchant vessels owned by Aaron Lopez (1731-1782), a Sephardic Jew born in Lisbon, Portugal, who came to Newport Rhode Island in 1752. Lopez quickly became a leading merchant in Newport and would go on to become its wealthiest citizen. Among his diverse business interests, he is credited with underwriting at least 21 slave ships between 1761 and 1774. The ship's captain chartered for the voyage from the free Dutch port of St. Eustatius to the Spanish port in New Orleans was Silvanus Jenckes (1746-1781), a Providence, Rhode Island ship's master who, In 1772, married Freelove Whipple Fenner, a young woman from a political family remembered in Rhode Island history for her beauty and her participation in the "Daughters of Liberty." Jenckes, like most seafaring New Englanders, would go on to become a privateer during the American Revolution but neither he nor his wife would live to see the end of the war. As a charter party, the goods on board the Royal Charlotte did not belong to the ship's owner but rather the "charter party," in this case, Mr. Oliver Pollock. Oliver Pollock (1737-1823) was born in County Tyrone, Ireland and arrived in 1760, settling in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Within two years he established himself as a merchant, trading mainly with the Spanish in the West Indies. He set up his headquarters in Havana, Cuba, where he became friends with the island's Governor General, Alejandro O'Reilly. Irish-born O'Reilly was one of the fabled "Wild Geese," soldiers who left Ireland to serve in the European armies of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. In April, 1769 O'Reilly was ordered to New Orleans to quell an uprising of Creole and German inhabitants who had deposed the Spanish Governor in response to government trade restrictions. O'Reilly arrived in August, with 2,000 troops and quickly restored order but soon realized he would have difficulties feeding and supplying his troops. Then, "To O'Reilly's great fortune, his old friend Oliver Pollock arrived at the port of New Orleans just in time on a ship with the very British name Royal Charlotte. O'Reilly was delighted to learn that the ship was full of flour..." (Independence Lost: Lives on the Edge of the American Revolution, DuVal, Kathleen. Random House Publishing Group, 2016). Instead of selling his flour at inflated market prices, Pollock sold them to O'Reilly at pre-rebellion cost. As a reward, Pollock was granted free trade privileges in Louisiana and relocated his headquarters to New Orleans, where he soon became one of its most successful businessmen. Pollock would later use his fortune to finance western operations of the Continental Army during the American Revolution.Given the timing and the items listed on this bill of lading, it is likely that this is the cargo of flour and goods that saved Alejandro O'Reilly and fed his army.

Joachin Ibarra (Portada, XXXII hojas + 233 págs. + Justa Repulsa de Iniquas Acusaciones. Carta en que, manifestando las imposturas, que contra el Theatro Crítico, y su autor, dió al público el R. P. Fr. Francisco Soto Marne (Madrid, Joachin Ibarra, 1769) Portada, VIII + 155 págs. + 2 Tomos de Adiciones a las Obras del muy ilustre y reverendísmo Padre Maestro D. Fr. Geronimo Feyjoó y Montenegro. Maestro General de la Orden de San Benito, del Consejo de S. M. (Impreso por Blas Román. Madrid, 1781). Portada, VIII hojas + 248 págs. + Adiciones. Portada, I hoja + 242 págs. Sobria y elegante encuadernación en plena piel de época (Pasta española). Obra de ocho tomos publicada entre 1726 y 1739, donde se recoge el pensamiento del monje Benito Jerónimo Feijoo y Montenegro. Para el titulo, el autor se sirve de una antigua acepción del término teatro, entendido como panorama o visión general de conjunto. Como bien dice el subtitulo de la publicación ¿Discursos varios en todo género de materias, para desengaño de errores comunes¿, se trata de una obra en la que el monje escribía y reflexionaba sobre temáticas muy diferentes. Así tenían cabida desde cuestiones amorosas, científicos, religiosos, hechos cotidianos, guerras, grandes pensadores o artes mágicas entre otros muchos. Y todo ello con la voluntad de dar una visión general de estos aspectos a las gentes comunes. Es difícil encontrar esta obra en comercio y, sobre todo, que los tomos del Theatro correspondan a la misma tirada. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nouvelles recherches sur les découvertes microscopiques, et la génération des corps organisés. Ouvrage traduit de l'Italien de M. l'Abbé Spallanzani par M. de Needham.

      Londres & Paris, Lacombe, 1769. - Londres & Paris, Lacombe, 1769 ; 1 vol. pet. in-8 (19 x 12.5 cm), (2), ii, LIV, (2), 298 pp., 7 planches dépliantes h.t. et (4), XVI, 293, (1) pp., 2 planches dépl. h.t. ; pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, reliure frottée avec épidermures, petit manque en tête du dos, coins émoussés, tranches marbrées, quelques rousseurs pâles, déchirure restaurée à la première planche avec petit manque marginal ; assez bon exemplaire. Première édition de la traduction française du premier ouvrage scientifique de Spallanzani, l'un des plus importants, faisant date dans l'histoire de la microbiologie. Il n'y eut pas de traduction ancienne en anglais. Cet ouvrage fut rédigé après plusieurs années d'expériences minutieuses. Spallanzani y réfute les conceptions de Buffon et de Needham sur la génération spontanée. Il répéta avec plus de rigueur les expériences de Needham, prêtre lui-aussi, qui utilisait des flacons bouchés avec du liège (très poreux). Il montre que les infusions introduites dans des fioles, dont les cols avaient été scellés à la lampe et plongés dans l'eau bouillante pendant 1 heure, ne renferment plus de formes vivantes décelables au microscope. Spallanzani arrive à distinguer les plus gros animalcules (protozoaires) détruits après une minute d'ébullition, des plus petits (bactéries), qui résistent à plus d'une demi-heure d'ébullition. Ces expériences sont remarquables pour l'époque, ayant abouti à des conclusions à bien des égards prophétiques. Elles ont tracé la voie à Appert puis à Pasteur. Le tome second est entièrement de Needham (qui était entré en relation épistolaire avec Spallanzani). Il a un titre propre : "Nouvelles Recherches physiques et métaphysiques sur la nature et la religion, avec une nouvelle théorie de la terre, et une mesure de la hauteur des Alpes" par M. de Needham. L'abbé Lazzaro Spallanzani (1729-1799) entra dans le clergé après avoir fait des études de droit, de lettres et surtout de sciences. Il fut nommé directeur du Muséum d'histoire naturelle, puis professeur à l'université de Pavie. Expérimentateur ingénieux, il est considéré comme l'un des plus grands physiologistes de son époque et comme un pionnier de la physiologie expérimentale. References : Bulloch W : History of Bacteriology, p. 75 ; Ratcliff MJ : The Quest for the Invisible : Microscopy in the Enlightenment, p. 218 : "The 1765 Saggio established that there is no transmutation of organisms for animalcules and that a parent of the same species is needed to give birth to an animalcule. Although Saggio was not widely welcomed, it influenced subsequent discoveries." ; Capanna E : Lazzaro Spallanzani : At the roots of modern biology, Journal of Experimental Zoology, 1999, 285, pp. 178¿196 ; Berche P : Une histoire des Microbes, pp.26-28: "Spallanzani reste surtout célèbre pour avoir montré le premier sur une base expérimentale rigoureuse et exemplaire, que les microorganismes ne naissent pas spontanément dans les infusions organiques ou végétales, comme le jus de viande ou de poivre. Ces expériences furent magistralement reprises par Louis Pasteur un siècle plus tard." ; Castellani C : La réception en Italie et en Europe du Saggio di osservazioni microscopiche de Spallanzani (1765), Dix-huitième siècle, 1991, n° 23, 85-95 : "Aujourdh'ui, l'ouvrage nous apparaît révolutionnaire de manière décisive, parce qu'il résolvait radicalement, moyennant une application intelligente de la méthode expérimentale, une question qui était encore en discussion, d'une certaine façon, dans les dernières décennies du 18e siècle : celle de la génération spontanée ; [livre] aujourdhui considéré comme un véritable tournant dans l'évolution de la science moderne. » ; Prandi : Bibliografia di Lazzaro Spallanzani, pp. 79-80 ; Grmek MD : Histoire de la pensée médicale en Occident, vol. 2, p. 333. © S.A.S.
