        THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER, AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS, AND OTHER RITES AND CEREMONIES OF THE CHURCH, ACCORDING TO THE USE OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. TOGETHER WITH THE PSALMS OF DAVID, POINTED AS THEY ARE TO BE SUNG OR SAID IN CHURCHES; AND THE FORM OR MANNER OF MAKING, ORDAINING, AND CONSECRATING OF BISHOPS, PRIESTS, AND DEACONS

      Oxford: University, 1769. Tall quarto. Contemporary black morocco (almost imperceptibly rebacked with original backstrip laid down); front and rear covers extensively decorated in gilt, 1 5/8-inch wide dentelle-style border of alternating large and thin vases holding flowers, within which is an elaborate central diamond-shape design composed of floral and rococo tools with two pairs of backward-looking tufted birds on branches, surrounded by floral and star-like tools; a.e.g. On the front cover, the center of the diamond-shape design is lettered "The Honorable Samuel Rous Esq. Barbados," surrounded by a stylized fern border. On the rear cover, the center of the diamond-shape design is lettered "One Thousand Seven Hundred & Seventy Two," also surrounded by a stylized fern border. Spine in six compartments with raised bands, extensively decorated in gilt with flowers, stars, circles, and different birds than on the covers. Inner dentelles gilt with "Greek key" roll, contemporary marbled pastedowns and free endpapers. Two corners rubbed and two corners almost imperceptibly repaired, otherwise in fine condition. Extra-illustrated with fifty-nine full- page engraved plates. A few minor dampstains on a few leaves at front and rear and occasional minor foxing, absolutely not affecting text or images. [bound with:] Brady, N., and N. Tate: A NEW VERSION OF THE PSALMS OF DAVID, FITTED TO THE TUNES USED IN CHURCHES. London: H. Woodfall, 1768. [26] leaves (printed in triple columns). A fine copy. A magnificently bound and extravagantly extra-illustrated copy of The Book of Common Prayer, prepared for presentation to, or perhaps commissioned by, Samuel Rous, President of His Majesty's Council and Commander-in-Chief (i.e. governor) of Barbados, from 1766 to 1768. He also served again in 1772, the year indicated on the rear cover. The Rous family, Quakers residing in Barbados, were leading planters on the island since the late 1630s. The fifty-nine plates bound in this volume to complement the text were originally executed for THE LITURGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND; ILLUSTRATED WITH FIFTY NINE HISTORICAL AND EXPLANATORY SCULPTURES, ENGRAVED BY MESS. RAVENETT, GRIGNION, SCOTIN, CANOTT, WALKER, AND W. RYLAND, printed in London in 1755 by Edward Ryland. According to the titlepage, included here as one of the extra-illustrated plates, this work was published according to an act of Parliament on May 1, 1755. However, no copies of this 1755 title are recorded in OCLC or ESTC. In addition to The Book of Common Prayer and the engravings from THE LITURGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND, this copy also contains a 1768 edition of A NEW VERSION OF THE PSALMS OF DAVID, first printed in 1698. Considering the recipient and the combined contents of the volume, these two texts and the extensive suite of engravings are bound in an appropriately sumptuous binding. Prepared for Samuel Rous, who served as governor of Barbados, the binding is a marvelous example of later 18th-century British bookbinding, with extensive gilt decoration on the covers and spine as described above. A fine copy of an elaborately decorated and illustrated volume, with a remarkable colonial-era provenance.

        AN HISTORICAL JOURNAL OF THE CAMPAIGNS IN NORTH-AMERICA, FOR THE YEARS 1757, 1758, 1759, AND 1760: CONTAINING THE MOST REMARKABLE OCCURRENCES OF THAT PERIOD; PARTICULARLY THE TWO SIEGES OF QUEBEC, &c. &c

      London, 1769. Frontispiece portrait in each volume. Quarto. Contemporary three quarter speckled calf over vellum boards, neatly rebacked in contemporary style, preserving original spine labels. Minor edge wear, covers slightly bowed. Internally clean and fresh. Overall very good. The present copy bears the ownership signature on each front pastedown of "Thos. Pitt," likely Thomas Pitt (1737- 93), first Baron Camelford, who sat in the House of Commons before being elevated to the House of Lords in 1784. Pitt also served in the Grenville Cabinet as admiralty minister in 1763. "One of the most accurate and detailed accounts available on the sieges of Louisbourg and Quebec" - TPL. Knox arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with his regiment in 1757 to take part in the anticipated expedition against Louisbourg, although the attack was postponed and the regiment did not see action in the siege. They did take part in the battle of the Plains of Abraham, served under James Murray at Quebec in the winter of 1759-60, and participated in the capitulation of Montreal in 1760. Knox gives a first-hand account of the battles, and supplements his narrative with printings of important official documents and orders from both the British and the French. The portraits represent generals Wolfe and Amherst, and the map, by Thomas Kitchin, shows the British dominions in North America according to the treaty of 1763.

        COMMENTARIES ON THE LAWS OF ENGLAND

      Oxford, 1769. Quarto. Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked, preserving original gilt morocco spine labels. Moderate wear to boards. Two bookplates on each front pastedown. Contemporary ink inscription on verso of flyleaf in first volume, two leaves bound upside down in second volume, light occasional foxing, a few marginal notes in a contemporary hand. Very good. A handsome set of the first edition of this cornerstone work on English laws, which had an undeniable influence on the course of jurisprudence in the United States. "Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history....Until the COMMENTARIES, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine; nothing but trouble, even danger, was to be expected from contact with it. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation....If the English constitution survived the troubles of the next century, it was because the law had gained a new popular respect, and this was due in part to the enormous success of Blackstone's work" - PMM. Blackstone's work was immediately influential and successful - it was reprinted a dozen times in England over the ensuing two decades, and translated into French, German, Italian, and Russian. Robert Bell produced the first American edition in Philadelphia in 1771-1772. With the bookplate of the Earls Waldegrave, English statesmen and soldiers. This was probably acquired by either the 3rd or 4th Earl.

        Constitutio Criminalis Theresiana oder der Römisch-Kaiserl. zu Hungarn und Böheim u.u. Königl. Apost. Majestät Mariä Theresiä Erzherzogin zu Oesterreich, u.u. peinliche Gerichtsordnung.

      - Wien, gedruckt bey Johann Thomas Edlen von Trattnern, 1769, Folio, (16), 282 pp.; Beilagen LVI pp. inkl. 30 (27 ganzseitigen und 3 doppelblattgroße gefalt. Kupfertafeln; Anhang 19 pp., Ledereinband d.Zt., mit Rückenvergoldung; feines Expl. Erstausgabe. - Einzige Ausgabe dieses bedeutenden Dokuments der europäischen Rechtsgeschichte, mit dem das Strafrecht für Österreich, die deutschen Erbländer und Böhmen vereinheitlicht wurde. Während in Preussen bereits 1740 die Folter abgeschafft worden war, hielt die "Theresiana" noch an ihr fest. Erst 1787 wurde das unzeitgemäße Gesetzbuch durch die sogenannte "Josephina" (Allgemeines Gesetz über Verbrechen und Strafen) außer Kraft gesetzt. Die Kupfer veranschaulichen die Praktiken der Tortur und zeigen zahlreiche Folterinstrumente. - - Der "Erste Theil" handelt "Von der peinlichen Verfahrung", der "Anderte Theil" betrifft die "halsgerichtsmäßigen Verbrechen insonderheit, und deren Straffen". Es folgen die "Beylagen"; diese enthalten das Formular, auf dem die Behördern vierteljährlich dem Obergericht Mitteilung machen müssen, dann die Vorschriften für die genaue Klärung der Todesursachen eines Opfers durch einen Wundarzt. In Numerus III und IV mit dem Titel "Abschilder- und Beschreibung der Peinigungsarten, wie selbe in der königl. böhmischen Hauptstadt Prag bey den daselbigen Stadt-Magistraten vorgenommen werden" bzw. "Abschilder- und Erklärung der Peinigungsarten, wie selbe in der kaiserl. königl. Residenzstadt Wienn bey dem kaiserl. königl. Stadt- und Landgericht vorgenommen zu werden pflegen", finden sich die berühmten Tafeln, auf denen Foltermethoden detailliert dargestellt werden: Anlegung von Daumenschrauben, Einschnürung von Gliedmaßen, Folterleiter, Fußeisen, Aufzugsmaschine, Spanischer Stiefel (auch Wiener Schuh genannt). In Numerus V, betitelt "Formularien", wird der Charakter der Constitutio besonders deutlich, wenn dort penibel festgesetzt wird, wie je nach Verbrechen die Todesstrafe noch verschärft wird durch z.B. "Viertheilen ohne und mit Verschärffung" hierbei wird unter anderem dem Verurteilten "sein lebendiges Herz herausgenommen (und) um das Maul geschlagen". - - Dieses Exemplar enthält die ergänzende Verordnung "von der Zauberey, Hexerey, Wahrsagery und dergleichen : - Wir Maria Theresia von Gottes Gnaden Römische Kaiserinn . Entbieten allen . Unsere Kaiserl. Königl. auch Landes-Fürstliche Gnad, und geben euch hiemit zu vernehmen: Wie daß die von Uns pro Compilatione Codicis allhier sub Praesidio Unseres wirklichen geheimen Raths, Rittern des goldenen Vließes Michael Johann Grafen von Althann . angeordnete Hof-Commission den in dem anderten Theil der ausarbeitend-peinlichen Gerichts-Ordnung einkommenden Articulum de Magia besonders haicklich . zu seyn befunden . : [Gegeben in Unserer Haupt- und Residenz-Stadt Wien, den fünften Monats-Tag Novembris, im siebenzehenhundert sechs- und sechzigsten . Jahre] . - - First Edition of the famous criminal code of MARIA THERESA, Archduchess of Austria, Queen of Hungary and Bohemia, Empress Consort of Francis I, Emperor of Germany [1717-1780], which redefined torture as "a subsidiary means of eliciting truth". Torture could be applied to obtain confessions only in cases where condemnation would have involved capital or severe corporal punishment. A remarkable publication, including graphic illustrations of instruments and methods of torture (thumb-screws, stocks, racks, burning candles, leg vices, winches, the 'Viennese shoe'), with detailed and precise instructions on their use. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica (11th Edn.), this illustrated edition was suppressed by Prince Kaunitz, chancellor of state and advisor to the Empress, a few days after its appearance. Torture was formally abolished in the empire in 1776. - - Seemann 1923. - Hayn-G.V, 451. - Sauer I, 1889. - Stubenrauch 651. - Lipperheide Pi 7. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lettre signée (15 mars 1810) / Défense du port d'Anvers

      - Napoléon Ier (1769-1821). Empereur des français. Lettre signée « Napol », dictée à son secrétaire Méneval, avec 2 corrections et un mot autographe de Napoléon, Paris, le 15 mars 1810, au général Clarke, duc de Feltre, 1 pages ½ in-4°. Lettre à la Correspondance de Napoléon Ier (n°16335 / tome 20). Importante lettre de stratégie concernant la défense de l’embouchure de l’Escaut contre les Anglais. « Je reçois votre lettre du 12 mars, relative à l’armement de l’Escaut. J’ai demandé, il est vrai, 885 bouches à feu, mais il s’en faut bien qu’il faille deux millions de poudre. Une partie de ces pièces sert aux batteries de côtes, qui n’ont pas besoin de 800 (ici Napoléon rature quelques mots) coups à tirer par pièce : je trouve donc ridicule que le bureau de l’artillerie me propose de dépenser des sommes immenses pour la poudre. Le travail du bureau de l’artillerie est, en général, fait de manière désagréable. 2.000 hommes pour 800 pièces feraient donc 3 hommes par pièce. Or, certainement, tous les canons qui sont à Anvers, à Lille et autres points, n’ont pas besoin de 3 hommes par pièce. Il y a dans cela de la déraison. Je suis bien éloigné de laisser dix compagnies d’artillerie de ligne sur l’escaut ; elles y sont inutiles et elles périraient pendant l’été par les fièvres. Les iles de Cadzand et de Walcheren sont les seuls endroits importants : les reste ne doit être que batteries de réserve (« réserve » est écrit par Napoléon), comme cela était avant l’expédition des Anglais. Je vois qu’il y a à Anvers un magasin neuf, contenant 100 milliers de poudre, et de vieilles tours sur les remparts qui en contiennent 200 milliers ; ce qui donne de la place pour 300 milliers. C’est une chose à concerter avec le ministre de la marine. Faites-moi connaître combien de poudre ce magasin contient dans ce moment ( ) Napol ». Napoléon avait fait de la défense de l’embouchure de l’Escaut un enjeu majeur. Il souhaitait donner à Anvers un rôle déterminant dans ses projets de conquêtes européennes. Point stratégique, les Anglais souhaitaient mettre la main sur le fleuve et sur Anvers afin de se dégager des menaces qui pesaient sur leur flotte en mer du Nord.

        THE AMERICAN TRAVELLER: OR, OBSERVATIONS ON THE PRESENT STATE, CULTURE AND COMMERCE OF THE BRITISH COLONIES IN AMERICA, AND THE FURTHER IMPROVEMENTS OF WHICH THEY ARE CAPABLE

      London: E. and C. Dilly, 1769.. [8],122pp. plus frontispiece. Folding map in facsimile. Quarto. 20th- century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Hinges and corners rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Minor foxing and soiling. Contemporary notation on plate. Very good. Cluny details the commerce and produce of the colonies in a series of letters to his patron. "In 23 letters Cluny describes the economic condition of the various colonies in America. He demonstrates the potentialities of the Hudson Bay trade and its restraint by the Hudson's Bay Company's monopoly, the importance of newly conquered Canada, the increasing estrangement of the English colonies southward and their economic value to Great Britain" - TPL. He expounds on each section of the American colonies, commenting on the agriculture and goods produced in each, including tobacco, rice, indigo, and silk from the South. The map (here in facsimile) is entitled, "A Map of North and South America, with Part of Europe, Asia & Africa. By the American Traveller." It shows the whole of the known world, with the Americas at its center. The frontispiece shows Cluny leading a party of men on snowshoe, accompanied by a dog sled. A contemporary hand has written beneath the image: "Alexander Clunie with his body guard of Indians travelling thro' the wilderness of America in 1744 & 5." HOWES C501, "b." TPL 428. JCB (1)III:1646.

Titelvignetten von Bause und Stock nach Oeser. Guter Halblederbd d. Z. auf 5 Bünden mit Rückentitel und Rückenvergoldung.

      Leipzig, Breitkopf und Sohn, 1767-1769. - Sehr seltene Zeitschrift des Leipziger Philosophieprofessors Christian August Clodius, zu dessen Besuchern seiner poetischen und prosaischen Praktika auch der junge Goethe zählte. Dieser hatte Clodius in dem bekannten Gedicht 'An den Kuchenbäcker Händel' – auch als Goethes erstes gedrucktes Gedicht überliefert – zur Zielscheibe seines Spottes gemacht. Später hat Goethe in 'Dichtung und Wahrheit' ein recht einseitiges und nach Meinung des Sohnes entstellendes Bild von Clodius gezeichnet. Die Zeitschrift enthält eine Sammlung von Abhandlungen, u. a. über die Literatur der griechischen Antike, vermischte Gedichte und auf den Seiten 265-368 den Erstdruck von Clodius‘ Lustspiel 'Medon oder die Rache des Weisen', das damals Anlass zu einigen Auseinandersetzungen gab. – Exlibris, Dublettenstempel auf dem Titel. Vorsätze und einige Blatt stockfleckig, sonst gutes, breitrandiges Exemplar. Wir können seit 1950 nur 3 Exemplare im Handel nachweisen, davon eines nur mit den ersten beiden Teilen. – Goed.

        Tractatus Botanico-Criticus de Chara-Caesaris, cujus Libr. III. de Civ. c. XLVIII. meminit. Praemittitur laus Caesaris.Karlsruhe, Michael Macklot, 1769. 8vo. Contemporary tanned sheepskin.

      BMC NH, p. 2285; Burdet 632; Stafleu & Cowan 17.048. First and only edition of a rare Latin treatise discussing accounts of "Chara-Caesaris", not the modern genus Chara (a fresh-water algae) but the root of the Caraway plant (Carum carvi) in classical texts. Although now known primarily for its seeds and the oil extracted from them, the root was formerly more highly valued as foodstuff (similar to parsnip) and for medicinal use. Among Weinmann's numerous quotations is a passage from Julius Caesar's commentaries on the civil wars: "Est etiam genus radicis inventum ab iis, quae fuerant cum Valerio, quod appellatur CHARA, quod multum inopiam levabat."Fine copy, crisp and with good margins, with only a minor marginal smudge on one page and an occasional spot in the paper, and with the two final integral blank leaves. Binding very good, with only a faded patch and a surface abrasion on the front cover and the edges rubbed.

        VIAGE DEL COMANDANTE BYRON AL REDEDOR DEL MUNDO, HECHO ULTIMAMENTE DE ORDEN DEL ALMIRANTAZGO DE INGLATERRA.... [bound with, as issued:] RESUMEN HISTORICO DEL PRIMER VIAGE HECHO AL REDEDOR DEL MUNDO, EMPRENDIDO POR HERNANDO DE MAGALLANES, Y LLEVADO FELIZMENTE A TERMINO POR EL FAMOSO CAPITAN ESPANOL JUAN SEBASTIAN DEL CANO

      Madrid, 1769. Frontis. Small quarto. Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, raised bands. Upper hinge expertly repaired. Remarkably clean internally. A fine copy. The second Spanish edition, produced the same year as the first, and following the London edition of 1767. The Spanish editions were the first to contain the much sought after map of the Straits of Magellan, making it far more desirable than other editions. Also new to this second Spanish edition is the account of Magellan's circumnavigation of 1519-22, completed by Capt. Juan Sebastian del Cano. Del Cano took command of the Vittoria after Magellan's death in the Philippines, thereby becoming the first sea captain to complete a circumnavigation. One of the most celebrated of all voyages, Byron's adventure in the Dolphin began as a voyage of discovery and ended as a record-setting twenty-two-month circumnavigation. The entire crew was led to believe their destination was the East Indies, and it was not until the ship had left Rio (where it was refitted) that the true mission was revealed: a voyage of discovery to the South Seas. To avoid mutiny, he granted his men double pay, and with renewed enthusiasm they set course for the Pacific. During the voyage Byron claimed the Falkland Islands for Great Britain. His account of the Straits of Magellan is one of the best to that time, further illuminated by the map that accompanies this edition. "Byron passed through the Straits without incident. Having reached the Pacific he succeeded in discovering islands and coral reefs, and returned to England without losing one member of his crew, a rare event in those days. This account of the voyage became famous because of its description of Patagonian giants [pictured in the frontispiece]. These giants were first observed by the crew of Magellan's fleet, and other authors refer to them, but as the travellers of the nineteenth century were unable to encounter them, their existence came to be considered a fable or optical illusion. What impresses the reader of Byron's book [sic], however, is the tone of veracity in the description of these very tall men whom the crew observed at close range, and with whom they had some contact" - Borba de Moraes. Extremely rare.

        Jan Evert MOREL (vor 1769 Amsterdam 1808). Früchtestillleben. Kreide

      - Jan Evert Morel (vor 1769 Amsterdam 1808). Früchtestillleben. Kreide und Aquarell auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Kreide und Aquarell auf Papier. unten rechts signiert: "J E Morel". -- Maße: -- 19,8 x 17,8 cm. -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt gut, am Rand minimal unfrisch. -- Beschreibung: -- Auch wenn die biographischen Informationen über Jan Evert Morel spärlich sind, so zeugt sein Werk dochvon einer guten Ausbildung und hohen Könnerschaft. Morel hat sich fast ausschließlich auf Blumen- undFrüchtestillleben spezialisiert. In diesen Werken zeigt er sich besonders von Jan van Huysum beeinflusst, derzu den besten Malern in diesem Genre in der ersten Hälfte des 18. Jahrhunderts zählt. Sein Einfluss reichtenoch bis weit in das Biedermeier hinein. Huysums Zeichnungen und Aquarelle waren nicht nur Vorstudienzu seinen Stillleben, sondern dienten auch als selbstständige Werke. In den Zeichnungen verwendete er häufigeine Aquarellierung, die sich zwar an dem Liniengerüst orientiert, darüber hinaus aber eine ganz eigeneStruktur entwickelte. Sie scheint wie eine zweite Schicht, wie ein zweites Stillleben über der Zeichnung zuliegen und erzeugt dadurch einen besonderen plastischen Reiz. Genau hieran wird sich auch Morel in dervorliegenden Zeichnung orientiert haben. Die Aquarellierung ist nicht zur Akzentuierung der Zeichnungeingefügt, sondern bildet teils eigene, über die Umrisse hinausgehende Formen. Diese Komplementierungbewirkt eine spontane Lebendigkeit, die gerade in der Monochromie des Blattes ein dynamisches Lichtspielerschafft. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Collection of twelve letters addressed to Lord Hervey informing him on the state of affairs in Russia. Count Francesco Algarotti (1712-1764) was a Venetian polymath, philosopher, poet, essayist, anglophile, art critic and art collector. He was "one of the first Esprits cavaliers of the age," a man of broad knowledge, an expert in Newtonianism, architecture and music and a friend of most of the leading authors of his times: Voltaire, Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, Marquis d'Argens, Pierre-Louis de Maupertuis and the atheist Julien Offray de La Mettrie. The son of wealthy merchant, he became the darling of the European aristocracy. In 1733 he captured the attention of Émilie du Chatelet when he stayed with her and Voltaire (Voltaire called him his 'cher cygne de Padoue') to write Il Neutonianismo per le dame which was translated into English by Elizabeth Carter. Leaving France for London, he became the paramour of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu who was ready to sacrifice her reputation and move to Italy with him. But Algarotti fled with Lord Baltimore to Russia, a trip recorded in his Viaggi in Russia (1760). Algarotti later became a constant companion to Frederic of Prussia who ordered a monument to be erected at Pisa to the memory of Algarotti (A Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century History, Edited by Jeremy Black and Roy Porter, p. 22).

        A state of the evidence in the cause between His Grace the Duke of Hamilton, and others, pursuers, and Archibald Douglas, of Douglas, Esquire, defender. With remarks

      London, printed; and sold by C. Bathurst ... and by Mess. Kincaid and Bell, in Edinburgh. 1769. 4to., (12) + 392pp., with a long list of errata on verso of A4, including an additional erratum on a pasted-on slip, bound in a fine contemporary crimson morocco, fully gilt including inner dentelles and edges, spine ornately gilt in the compartments with sunbursts, leaf sprays, coronets and other devices, marbled endpapers. A magnificent copy, perhaps bound for presentation. With the 19th century armorial bookplate of Thomas Byron> (1772-1845), the rich landowner, property magnate and sometime M.P. for Hertford. Also with the earlier ownership inscription on flyleaf of H. Purlewent Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Oxford> and thereafter Rector of Brampton in Northamptonshire, who died in 1807. First edition. This is a particularly influential analysis of the enormous quantity of evidence produced in the famous society legal case of Hamilton v Douglas - the so-called Douglas cause which turned on the legitimacy and true parentage of Archibald Douglas (1748-1827) and his claim, launched in 1761, to the extensive Douglas estates. The case itself lasted some seven years, being finally resolved in Douglas's favour by the House of Lords in early 1769. Robert Richardson (1732-1781), Prebendary of Lincoln Cathedral and Chaplain-in-ordinary to the King, was for some years also chaplain to Sir Joseph Yorke in the Hague. It was apparently there that he undertook his Hamilton/Douglas research. His findings were put into the hands of counsel, his views coinciding with those of the House of Lords. Referring to 'this quarrel', his view was that the argument put forward by the Hamilton camp was 'unworthy the protection of a man of science ...; their present proof [was] unworthy the credit of a man of experience; and that the speeches in favour of the pursuers ... [were] so full of the most unaccountable mistakes in point of fact, and absurdities in point of argument, that they are unworthy the attention of any person in the world'.
