Tomus Prior et Tomus Posterior." Johan Ihre (1707-1780) was a Swedish philologist and historical linguist who worked as Professor of Rhetoric and Politics at the University of Uppsala. This is the first comprehensive dictionary of Swedish, though its definitions are in Latin. Ihre demonstrated the origin of words in Old Swedish forms and compared them to cognates in other languages. In accordance with the historical speculations common at the time and derived from Icelandic sources, Ihre thought that the language had been brought to the Nordic countries by Odin himself.

Clerc, Nicolas-Gabriel
Soissons: Ponce Courtois, Imprimeur du Roi, 1769. First edition. Four parts bound in one, 4to (26 x 20.5 cm), pp.xviii, 701, [9, table, approbation, privilege, & errata], 8 large folding tables. A very good copy bound in contemporary cat's paw calf, spine gilt in compartments. All edges red. One corner bumped, edges rubbed, narrow abrasion on lower board. Small, neat repair to top of spine. A popular history of the legendary Chinese emperor, Yu, and Confucius, written by Nicolas-Gabriel Clerc (1726-1728) for the young Grand Duke of Russia, later Tsar Paul I, extolling the Chinese model of rule as an example of virtuous monarchy. Clerc presents a general description of China, a history of Confucius and Confucian philosophy, and a history of Emperor Yu, in which he deliberately conflates the deeds of several legendary Chinese rulers. Several sections compare Russia and China as vast empires; Clerc uses the Chinese model as an exemplar for a future tsar of how best to rule. The folding tables are largely concerned with trade between the two countries. Cordier BS 604; Löwendahl 549; Lust 1275

American Colonies; British America; British Colonies; We fit archival quality clear acrylic covers for additional protection whenever possible. ; Engravings; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; BLAND, RICHARD. An Enquiry in to the Rights of the British Colonies. In a Letter to the Author of The Regulations, &c. [London, 1769]. As included in: * The Political Register, and Impartial Review of New Books. For MDCCLXIX. London: for Henry Beevor, 1769. 8vo, original calf and marbled boards, raised bands, leather spine label, (i) 392 pages plus several inserted engraved plates. Covers sound but worn with scuffing, text tight, mild aging, brief worming at title page and ensuing few leaves, Bland's text on pages 9-27 with few very tiny worm holes at first few of those pages. Bland's essay on the rights of colonists was initially published in Williamsburg in 1766 (he was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates) , and excerpts were included in the Virginia Gazette of May 30, 1766, but not reprinted elsewhere in the colonies, and not in England until 1769 as a separate pamphlet. The printing of the complete text in The Political Register either preceded the pamphlet or was simultaneous. Bland's essay was one of the first detailed and lengthy considerations of the dubious right and legality of new British taxes on the colonists, and was remarkable for including the author's name on the 1766 original edition (which did put Bland into serious trouble with the Virginia governor). Immediately following Bland's text is the texts of October, 1768, correspondence to and from General Gage and members of th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Full glossy blond calf and marbled contemporary. Back smooth decorated. Parts of title and volume numbers of red morocco. A small loss in head volume I. Five corners bumped. Friction. Without doubt the most ambitious and the most remarkable study Bonnet which earned him the title of father of modern biology. This work of theoretical biology drawing its source in a multi-disciplinary thinking and assumption Leibniz (the immortality of the soul) claims that the Earth undergoes contemporaryic universal disasters that destroy almost all life and survivors to rise whenever a step on the ladder of evolution. Bonnet was the first to use the term evolution in a biological context. The book also foreshadows experimental psychology. It exists in every being germs that predate him and ensures the survival of the species, the thesis Bonnet announcing the theories and discoveries of genes. This is blindness in Bonnet put a stop to the experiments and urged towards philosophical reflection. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

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.

[BASKERVILLE, John, 1706-1775]
Birmingham: printed by John Baskerville [through 1771], MDCCLXIX [1769]. First Edition thus. First Issue (Old Testament title page dated 1769) of the First Illustrated Edition (second edition overall) of the Birmingham printer's mighty tour de force. Large Printing Demy folio (410 x 255 mm): unpaginated, with 572 leaves, frontispiece, and 9 further full-page plates, signed by F. Hayman, C. Vanloo, J. Jouvenet, and J. M. Moreau le jeune, and by the engravers Westwood, I. Taylor, Le Grand, J. Caldwell, and Hicks. No preliminary pages, notes at foot of pages, text ends at 13ka. Contemporary full calf, beautifully rebacked retaining original spine. A clean, firmly bound, well margined copy with fine impressions of the plates, quite handsome indeed. Cambridge History of the Bible, p. 464. Gaskell 35. Herbert 1210. Pardoe, pp. 105-113. Not in Darlow & Moule. Issued in parts over a three year period, beginning January 2, 1769 (New Testament title page dated 1771), then reissued in 1772. Baskerville's type faces introduced the modern, pseudo-classical style, with level serifs and emphasis on the contrast of light and heavy lines. His books (as is true of this Bible) are typically large, with wide margins. This particular production is not quite the equal of the first edition in terms of materials and workmanship, but that Bible was "[a]esthetically, the highest point in English Bible printing so far."

CARACCIOLI, Louis Antoine]
xxxv, [1], 340, [3] pp. Small 8vo, cont. mottled calf (head of spine a little chipped), red morocco lettering-piece on spine, spine gilt. Paris: Bailly, 1769. First edition of a rare work on agriculture and the production of wine, heavily influenced by the Physiocrats. Caraccioli (1719-1803), a writer on various topics and an itinerant pen-for-hire, was a fervent advocate of Necker. In this treatise, Caraccioli discusses the problems of agriculture in the 1760s, including the declining rural population, an excessive number of manufacturers, and the lack of a centralized land register. There are frequent references to the agricultural practices of other nations, such as Italy, Hungary, and Germany. Chapter Three is devoted to maximizing the output of vineyards through more sophisticated practices. The final section, which lays out Caraccioli's proposals, reflects the Physiocrats' admiration of Chinese agrarian policies. A very good copy, with a few contemporary corrections. Engraved 19th-century bookplate with the initials "C: ST:" on front paste-down. ? Barbier, Dictionnaire des Ouvrages anonymes, col. 83. N.B.G., Vol. 8, col. 653.

Summerfield, John]
Pennsylvania, 1769. Full Limp Calf. Good. A beautiful and early Pennsylvania Fraktur-Style Illuminated Manuscript Tune Book, with calligraphy in both cursive and Gothic lettering and elaborate ornamental pen-work and watercoloring. The tunes are generally based on Scottish psalms. Oblong, 10 by 18 cm. 26 pp.Contents comprised of both lyrics and musical notation. Works of music entitled "Musick Song", "French Tune", York Tune", "London", "St. David's", "St. Marys", "New Town", "Brunswick", "The Isle of Wight", "Worcester", "Angel's Song", "Duke's Tune", "Lunenburgh", "Bella", "Dundee", "Elgine", "Martyrs", "Dublin", "Abby", "Manchester", "Cambridge", "St Anns", "Middlesex", "Humphrey's", and "Savoy". Gerneally there are only four measures of music for each of the tunes, and all that is rendered is one line of music, the basic melody. Generally the words to the music are on the left page, with the music titles and bars on the right-sided page. Besides the obvious observation that geography or place names figure importantly in the songs, the lyrics can have a sacred, political or romantic thrust to them. We do not know enough about this music to opine on how well known these tunes were at the time; however, many of the titles are referred to in Richard A. Crawford's book, "Core Repertory of Early American Psalmody".We attribute this album to John Summerfield whose name is written on the third page along with the abbreviation, "Scrip", which we interpret to mean "writer" as in "scriptorum".It is our assumption that the album was thus created for Peter Steel, as oppos … [Click Below for Full Description]
