RICHARDSON, Robert
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

COLLETT, J. artist and RENNOLDSON, MARTIN. engraver.
Printed for Robt. Sayer No. 53, in Fleet Street, & Jno. Smith No. 35 in Cheapside as the Act directs Jan. 2., London, 1769. Original hand coloured copper engraving 12.2 x 9.75 inches, trimmed to platemark. some small surface scratches in the background shading, some old creases along the top edge one or two small, old closed tears and some discolouration in the margins but a very good example. This engraving satirises the dilemma of those who, for whatever reason, failed to learn the genteel accomplishment of dancing at an early age. In 'Grown Ladies Taught to Dance', a young dancing master is instructing an elderly woman to dance. She is very stiff and ungraceful. Two small girls look on, laughing at the woman's clumsy attempts to dance. On the wall is a parody of this scene with a monkey teaching a cat to dance. 18th CENTURY SATIRE / CARICATURE DANCING 18th CENTURY

Daraufhin nahm Lessing die Gelegenheit war, in den Stücken 101-104 das Problem unrechtmässiger Nachdrucke kritisch zu diskutieren und insbesondere den unverschämten "Dodsley" (= Schwickert) anzuklagen. Dieser druckt die Stücke 101-104 voll ab und fügt am Ende (Seiten 408-412) seinerseits ein "Intermezzo" an: "Da es Hr.

MONEY, William Taylor.
Goldsmith's Lib. 20255 (not noting the plate); Kress Lib. B5872 (lacking 2 ll. and not noting the plate); not in Bradley; Bruzelius. First and only edition of a detailed series of arguments promoting the use of Indian teak for shipbuilding, by William Money (1769-1834), superintendent of the Bombay Marine Board from 1803 to 1810 and later director of the British East India Company. He argues that teak is superior to oak for ships sailing in warm waters because it resists worm damage and notes that it is abundantly available on India's western Malabar coast, while there was a great scarcity of English Oak. He therefore suggests the British East India Company have ships built in India, avoiding the expense of shipping the wood to the London shipyards. Author's presentation copy, with "from the author" at the head of the title-page and with a July 1812 inscription by what must the recipient, J.D. Thompson, perhaps meaning the Breconshire magistrate James Duncan Thomson (d. 1851). With a tear and a couple creases in the last leaf, and a slight offset from the engraved portrait onto the title-page, but the book and binding are otherwise in very good condition, with generous margins. An important and detailed primary source for the history of shipbuilding in India.

[PUZZLES]. [NAPOLEON BONAPARTE].
A nice and colourful set of jigsaw puzzles depicting scenes from the life of Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821), 2 of the puzzles and the sample plate with address «Ulysse Paris» engraved in the image. Each puzzle has 20 pieces. The first depicts Napoleon Bonaparte calmly sleeping in a chair after having given orders to his generals on the eve of the battle of Austerlitz (1 Dec. 1805). The second shows a still fresh Napoleon addressing an exhausted soldier, a scene from the terrible battle at Lodi, Italy, 10 May 1796, between French forces under Napoleon Bonaparte and the Austrian rear guard led by Johann Beaulieu. The third shows Napoleon as merciful Emperor, receiving the thankful wife and children of a Prussian lord accused of conspiracy, but whom he nonetheless pardoned.The puzzle matching the scene mounted on the top of the box is not included; a few pieces cracked at thin spots; box slightly defective with traces of use and browned. A good set.

MONEY, William Taylor.
- Goldsmith's Lib. 20255 (not noting the plate); Kress Lib. B5872 (lacking 2 ll. and not noting the plate); not in Bradley; Bruzelius. First and only edition of a detailed series of arguments promoting the use of Indian teak for shipbuilding, by William Money (1769-1834), superintendent of the Bombay Marine Board from 1803 to 1810 and later director of the British East India Company. He argues that teak is superior to oak for ships sailing in warm waters because it resists worm damage and notes that it is abundantly available on India's western Malabar coast, while there was a great scarcity of English Oak. He therefore suggests the British East India Company have ships built in India, avoiding the expense of shipping the wood to the London shipyards. Author's presentation copy, with "from the author" at the head of the title-page and with a July 1812 inscription by what must the recipient, J.D. Thompson, perhaps meaning the Breconshire magistrate James Duncan Thomson (d. 1851). With a tear and a couple creases in the last leaf, and a slight offset from the engraved portrait onto the title-page, but the book and binding are otherwise in very good condition, with generous margins. An important and detailed primary source for the history of shipbuilding in India. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Branders Beschreibung des neuen dioptrischen Sectors nebst einer zu dessen Gebrauch am Ende beygefügten sehr dienlichen Chordentabelle. 3. Eben desselben Beschreibung einer ganz neu verfertigten Libel oder Nivelir-Wage nebst Kupfern. Vor der Chordentabelle listet Brander in einer "Anzeige" die bei ihm erhältlichen Instrumente auf (S. 77-84). - Der berühmte Schweizer/Elsässer Physiker und Mathematiker Lambert (1728-1777) lernte Brander 1759 kennen, hielt sich mehrere Jahre in Augsburg auf und stand mit Brander in ständigem Kontakt. Später gab es einen regen Briefwechsel zwischen beiden, der für die Jahre 1765 bis 1776 durch J. Bernoulli dokumentiert ist. Lambert beschreibt in seinen Anmerkungen Branders bedeutendste technische Entwicklung im Hinblick auf präzise Messinstrumente, die Glasmikrometer, und geht auch auf die Entwicklungsgeschichte ein, bei der Tobias Mayer eine wesentliche Rolle spielt, dessen Abhandlung von 1748 Bestandteil der Publikation ist.
