William Woty
1770 first edition 'Printed by G. Scott, for W. Flexney, Opposite Gray's Inn Gate' (London), two volumes bound as one, 5 1/8 x 7 1/2 inches tall dark brown full leather bound, gilt lettering to spine, English marble endpapers, [16], xi, 159, [4], 175 pp., complete. Newly rebound in French goat. Minor staining to top of first title page. Otherwise, apart from an occasional very light instance of foxing, a very good to near fine copy of this scarce issue. ABPC indicates a copy has not come up at auction since 1990, when it sold for 750 pounds sterling ($1,444) at Sotheby's. References: ESTC No. N12044; OCLC No. 4433087. William Woty (circa 1731-1791) came to London, possibly from the Isle of Wight, to clerk for a solicitor. Woty's biography in the 1903 ODNB says he was a "versifier, was possibly a native of the Isle of Wight, and among his poems is an elegy on his schoolmaster, who lived near Alton in Hampshire." He participated in debating clubs and published poetry in the newspapers that was later collected in the volume, The Shrubs of Parnassus. Woty was involved with William Dodd in the Christian's Magazine, and with Francis Fawkes in The Poetical Calendar. About 1767 he found a patron in Washington Shirley, 5th Earl Ferrers (1722-1778), for whom he did legal work. Woty died at Loughborough in 1791, having acquired some reputation as a bon vivant.

RICHARD, Abbe Jerome (b. 1720).
Paris: Chez Saillant & Nyon, 1770, 1771. Paris:: Chez Saillant & Nyon, 1770, 1771., 1770. 10 volumes. 12mo. Original gilt-stamped mottled calf, leather spine labels, raised bands; spine ends worn. Eighteenth century book label. Very good. At the time of its publication, this was one of the most expansive treatments on the subject of meteorology available. Though Richard's ideas are not groundbreaking, his writing provides invaluable insight into the state of meteorology, physics, and other branches of natural science in 18th century France. Richard presents theories of the atmosphere, weather, air, various meteorological phenomena (rainbows, halos, etc.), and discusses at length the study of natural phenomena in antiquity. The text deals with much material of air & general theories relating to the atmosphere, action of heat & cold on the air, "Observations on the cause of color of negroes", causes of severe or extreme weather, state of air extremes in Africa, of Abyssinia, Egypt, the Nile region, the deserts of Africa, III: polar regions, glaciers, Spitzbergen, America's Hudson Bay, Siberia, Tartary, China, Japan, Armenia, Caucasus mountains, Georgia, Caspian Sea, Persia (vol.

HOLBACH, Baron Paul von.
"par M. Mirabaud" [printer unidentified], Londres [Amsterdam], 1770. In two volumes: Volume 1: 1 blank leaf + half-title + TP + [i]-[ii] = Avis de l'Editeur + [iii]-[vi] = Preface de l'Autuer + [vii]-[viii] = Table des Chapitres + [1]-366 + 1 blank leaf; Volume 2: Half title + TP + [i]-[ii] = Table des Chapitres + [1]-408 + 1 blank leaf; small Octavo. First Edition, Second Printing. Vercruysse 1770, A-7.This is the second printing of the first edition - with the corrections made to the text. The first issue is paginated 370/412 (rather than the 370/408 seen here) and has a comma (rather than a period as here) after "Londres." Holbach contributed some four hundred articles to the Encyclopédie of his lifelong friend and colleague, Denis Diderot. Diderot, d'Alembert, Helvetius, Voltaire and others of the philosophes met frequently for dinner and philosophical discussion at the Baron's house, which became known as "the café of Europe" (among whose foreign visitors were Wilkes, Hume and Sterne).In the Systême, Holbach rejected the Cartesian mind-body dualism and attempted to explain all phenomena, physical and mental, in terms of matter in motion. Holbach rejected religion because he saw it as a wholly harmful influence, and he tried to supply a desirable alternative. In fact, he outlined a whole ethical and political philosophy - which is expanded in his later works. Holbach was "the foremost exponent of atheistic materialism, and the most intransigent polemicist against religion in the Enlightenment." (EP, Vol. 4, p. 49) "He could not publish safely under his own name, but had … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paul Heinrich Dietrich, Baron díHolbach (1723-1789) first became known as a scientist, contributing some four hundred articles to the EncyclopÈdie of his friend and colleague Denis Diderot. Holbach later turned from science to more dangerous topics, writing and having published abroad, a number of books attacking religion in all aspects, which flooded illegally into France. Unable to publish safely under his own name, he had the ingenious idea of using the names of recently dead French authors. Thus, in 1770, his most famous book, ìThe System of Nature,î appeared under the name of Jean-Baptiste Mirabaud. ìIn the SystËme Holbach rejected the Cartesian mind-body dualism and attemped to explain all phenomena, physical and mental, in terms of matter in motion.

[Harvey, William] van Bemmel, Willem (after the artist) / Houbraken, J. (engraver).
[Amsterdam], J. Houbraken, no year [c.1770]. Original copper engraving portrait of english physician William Harvey, ″ first known physician to describe completely and in detail the systemic circulation and properties of blood". The vintage engraving shows William Harvey, head-and-shoulders portrait, facing slightly left, in a medallion draped with cloth, also shows a drawing of the cardiovascular system, parts of a plant, and a snake entwined around a stick, suggesting a caduceus. Beautifully Framed. Size of frame with Harvey's portrait: 32 cm x 38 cm. Size of the actual portrait engraving: 9.5 cm x 15.5 cm. Excellent condition ! William Harvey (1 April 1578 - 3 June 1657) was an English physician who made seminal contributions in anatomy and physiology. He was the first known physician to describe completely and in detail the systemic circulation and properties of blood being pumped to the brain and body by the heart, though earlier writers, such as Realdo Colombo, Michael Servetus, and Jacques Dubois, had provided precursors of the theory. In 1973 the William Harvey Hospital was constructed in the town of Ashford, a few miles from his birthplace of Folkestone. William's father, Thomas Harvey, was a jurat of Folkestone where he served the office of mayor in 1600. Records and personal descriptions delineate him as an overall calm, diligent, and intelligent man whose „sons... revered, consulted and implicitly trusted in him... (they) made their father the treasurer of their wealth when they acquired great estates...(He) kept, employed, and improved their gainings to their g … [Click Below for Full Description]

TREW, Christoph Jakob).
Altdorf: Johann Paul Meyer, 1770. Folio (332 x 205 mm), pp. 48. Contemporary gilt paper over paste paper boards. Front joint split at head and slightly worn still largely intact. Front board with horizontal crease mark and upper outer corner bent. Contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper; a little light spotting; a very good copy. Title within elaborate rococo border, text in Latin and in German. First edition of a collection of publications marking the donation by Christoph Trew of his library and natural history collection to the University of Altdorf in June 1768. A city solicitor, court physician, Count Palatine of the Holy Roman Empire, advisor to the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach, Christoph Trew (1695-1769) had an academic passion for botany. A member of the Royal Society of London, of the Berlin Academy and of the Florentine Botanical Society, his interest in botany led him to sponsor the publication of illustrated botanical books. He also amassed a vast collection of books and natural history specimens that he donated to the university of Altdorf the year before his death. The introductory account by the Nuremberg historian Georg Andreas Will records the celebration and notes the magnitude of the gift; over 15,000 manuscripts and more than 34,000 books, as well as objects, machines, plant specimens and drawings. There then follow eight further orations, pronouncements, laudatory verses and opening speeches of praise and gratitude by various dignitaries and academics, some of which had been previously published in 1769.

Francois Nicolas Martinet & Georges Louis Leclerc Comte de Buffon
France, 1770. This magnificent, copperplate engraving featured here displays remarkable, original hand-coloring. The plate is from the large paper edition of Francois Martinet's work with Buffon "Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux". The work was published between 1765 and 1780 by Edme Louis Daubenton in France. Each plate features a delicate yellow border, which many believe led to the development of French matting. Each plate is on fine chain-linked, watermarked paper with nice, wide margins. --- Martinet was a prominent ornithological artist of the 1700s. He work closely with Count Georges-Louis Leclerc du Buffon on "Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux". The work is considered one of the most influential bird books of all time. Martinet also created work for Marmontel, Voltaire, and Philidor. --- The work is in excellent condition overall. There may be a few minor imperfections to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.

Cristoforo Dall'Acqua (Vicenza 1734 - 1787)
"Acquaforte e bulino, 1770 circa, firmata in basso a destra "Cristoforo Dall'Acqua Vicentino Disegnò, e Incise". Lungo il margine inferiore dell'immagine, legenda numeria 1- 12, distribuita su 4 colonne. Splendido esemplare, impresso su carta vergata coeva, completa oltre la linea marginale. Della serie, Vedute vicentine, composte da 12 scorci della città e dalla veduta generale. Come osserva Francesca Lodi (Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani), tra le prospettive eseguite dal Dall'Acqua, le Vedute vicentine sono meritatamente le più note perché disegnate dallo stesso incisore. Collocate dal Magagnato (1952) tra il 1770 e il 1780, ad eccezione della veduta panoramica della città, certamente più tarda per la presenza della loggetta neoclassica del Bertotti Scamozzi eretta nel 1780, sono state retrodatate al periodo 1760-72 dalla Sanna (1975-76, pp. 49-51) sulla base di indicazioni date da una lettera autografa del 25 ott. 1760 (Bibl. civica di Bassano) e dal catalogo dei Remondini del 1772; i curatori di "Vicenza città bellissima" (1983, p. 32) ne restringono i tempi: 1760-64, affidandosi alla testimonianza del catalogo remondiniano del 1764. Le ariose incisioni richiamano gli scorci familiari della città sorpresa nelle ore piene di animazione. A parere del Magagnato, il Dall'Acqua si stacca - e in ciò consiste la sua peculiarità - dalla grande tradizione dei vedutisti veneti del '700: ""all'acutezza delle indagini prospettiche, e soprattutto all'energia delle impaginazioni luminose, egli sostituisce l'amore per i particolari saporiti, le note stravaganti di costume"".

Wesley, John
J. and W. Oliver, London, 1770. First edition of Wesley's sermon preached at the funeral of fellow founder of Methodism, Reverend George Whitefield. Octavo, bound in contemporary calf with gilt ruling and title to the front panel. One of the three founders of the Methodist movement along with John and Charles Wesley, Whitefield gained widespread recognition during his 1740 journey to North American where he preached a series of revivals that became part of the "Great Awakening." He preached nearly 20,000 sermons throughout his ministry, enthralling large audiences with a potent combination of drama and rhetoric. In very good condition. One of the three founders of Methodism, English minister John Wesley wrote, edited and abridged over 400 theological and political publications. A clear and concise writer, his Forty-Four Sermons and Notes Upon the New Testament became Methodist doctrinal standards distinguished by Wesley's theological focus on the primacy of Scripture, assurance of salvation, imparted righteousness, and the possibility of perfection in love. A key step in the development of Wesley's ministry was travelling and preaching outdoors; moving across England and Ireland Wesley appointed hundreds of unordained evangelists who, in turn, traveled and preached as he did, becoming leaders in resolving many social issues of the day including the abolition of slavery.

Francesco Barbazza (Attivo a Roma 1771 - 1789)
1770. "Ampia veduta prospettica di Piazza Colonna incisa da Francesco Barbazza su disegno di Francesco Panini. La prospettiva include tutti gli eidfici storici che si affacciano sulla piazza: Palazzo Montecitorio e Palazzo Chigi, a destra; sullo sfondo, dove ora sorge palazzo Wedekind, sede della testata giornalistica ""Il Tempo"", si nota la struttura originaria che il palazzo aveva fin dalla fine del '600, dopo le modifiche volute da papa Innocenzo XII (1691-1700) che donò il Palazzo all'Ospizio Apostolico di San Michele. Con tutta probabilità fino da allora si insediò al primo piano dell'edificio il Monsignore Viceregente del Vicariato di Roma. A sinistra, palazzo Niccolini, oggi Ferraioli, con accanto la Chiesa di S. Bartolomeo Apostolo. L'incisione fa parte di una serie di 37 vedute che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò a Francesco Panini tra il 1763 e il 1779. Incise da diversi artisti, le tavole circolarono separatamente. Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione."

FER, Nicolas de.
Paris: Louis-Charles Desnos, 1770. Original outline colour. Four sheets conjoined, total 990 x 1310mm. A few repairs, laid on canvas. Evidence of cracks in the printing plate in the right eagle's head. A highly-decorative map of Germany, engraved by Hendrick van Loon and first published c.1705. The map is held aloft by the two-headed Habsburg eagle, with its head poking above the map, its feet with sword and mace at the sides and its tail-feather with armorials of major cities underneath. The eagle holds in its beak a chain, on which are suspended medallion portraits of the Holy Roman Emperors from Charlemagne in 814 to Francis I and Maria Theresa. Underneath the map are two scenes of the coronation of the emperor at Frankfurt am Main in 1745. Although the title describes this wall map as being 'corrected and updated' by Desnos, little on the map has been changed since the second edition (Danet, 1723). Instead a newer map of Germany has been pasted in the lower left (with the original scale excised and pasted lower right). Another patch has been pasted over the crown between the eagles' heads; this covers the original portrait of Josef I (emperor 1705-11) and his successor Charles VI (added by Danet), replacing them with the five later monarchs. To the left the portrait of Josef's predecessor Leopold has been completely re-engraved. The dates of the two coronation scenes have also been updated from 1658.

1770. "Splendida veduta incisa da un dipinto di Joseph Vernet, esposto al Salone di Parigi nel 1750. Questa scena, di grandi dimensioni, mostra una festa a Roma, lungo il Tevere: sulla riva una folla di curiosi guarda verso le imbarcazioni con curiosi raccolti sulla riva del Tevere in primo piano, sullo sfondo, Ponte e Castel Sant'Angelo. Il signore in primo piano a destra, che incede con portamento elegante, è un autoritratto di Joseph Vernet stesso. Nel margine inferiore, sotto l'immagine, si leggono i dati editoriali A Paris, che Dure Gravere, danno le milieu de la rue due Fonare"", il nome del pittore a sinistra e quello dell'incisore Pierre Jacques Dure, a destra. Sotto il titolo, la dedica al re di Danimarca e Norvegia, Cristiano VII, con al centro lo stemma coronato dei due Paesi. Acquaforte e bulino, in ottimo stato di conservazione."
