        Muscovy Duck (Cairina moschata)]

      1770 - Watercolour and bodycolour, on laid paper, watermarked 'IV'. An accurate depiction of a Muscovy Duck with a charming naïveté. The Muscovy is a native of Brazil but has long been domesticated and is indeed the only domestic duck not derived from Mallard stock. It is found in a great many colour premutations but the one distinguishing feature that remains constant is the extraordinary area of red skin around the eyes and over the beak. The present image is on continental paper and is stylistically similar to work being produced in Germany in the 1770s.

        [MANUSCRIPT LYRICS AND MUSIC TO "BETSY" OR "THE BETRAYED MAIDEN"]

      [Connecticut,, ca. 1770]. Loose leaf. Fair. One manuscript leaf, approximately 11 1/2 x 8 inches, early folds. Recto inscribed with song lyrics, verso with musical notation and unrelated early inscriptions. Neatly separated along horizontal fold, some separation at other folds and minor chipping along folds and edges. Toning and early light stains and smudges. Fair to good. 18th-century manuscript rendering of a ballad believed to be one of the first songs composed in British America, known as "Betsy" and by various other titles. The manuscript leaf contains a complete set of lyrics to an eleven-verse version of the song and 26 bars of notation of a simple melody. "Betsy" does not appear among the Child ballads but has been discussed extensively by later collectors and scholars of Anglo-American folk songs, including Malcolm Laws, who refers to it as "Betsy Is a Beauty Fair," "Johnny and Betsy," and "The Lancaster Maid." Laws sums up the action succinctly: "A young man's mother hears him making love to her young servant girl. She spirits the girl away and has her transported to Virginia as a bound servant. The boy pines away and dies of his grief and the mother regrets her unkindness" (AMERICAN BALLADRY FROM BRITISH BROADSIDES, pp. 189-190). In a 1906 issue of the JOURNAL OF AMERICAN FOLKLORE, contributor Mrs. R. F. Herrick submits the song as "Betsy Was a Lady Fair," which she learned from her father, born in 1807. She relates the tradition that it "is supposed to be the first, or one of the first, songs composed in the colonies" (JAF 19:73, pp. 130-132). As Laws notes, the song is almost certainly based on a late 17th-century British broadside ballad, "Love Overthrown. The Young Man's Misery; And the MAID'S RUINE" (Magdalene College Pepys broadside collection 5.307), which follows an almost identical plot, including the banishment to Virginia. The earliest known printed version of the song as it was sung (and possibly reconfigured) in America appears as "The Betrayed Maiden" in a broadside printed by J. Pitts in London at some point between 1819 and 1844. The present manuscript evidently was composed in colonial or late 18th-century Connecticut, judging from the paper and a stray inscription on the verso, snugly contained in two panels of the folds (indicating a later date from the main contents). The inscription, written backwards, refers to "Abner Ladd of Norwich in the County of New London in America" and "John Gager" and is signed by the former. Two residents of Norwich of these names were contemporaries, Ladd living between 1740 and 1819 and Gager from 1736 to 1817. In addition to pointing to the main document's 18th-century origins, the inscription strongly suggests it preceded the Pitts London broadside (whose earliest possible printing date was 1819) by some years, making the manuscript the earliest known written recording of the song in this form.

        4 Printed certificates for attending lectures in surgery signed by Louis

      Paris, 1770. Louis, Antoine (1723-92). Four educational certificates signed in Louis's official capacity, and bearing several other autograph signatures. N.p., 1770-1776. Documents measure approx. 213 x 269 mm. Embossed and colored seals in left margins of all certificates. Creased along previous folds, slight worming, 2 small pin-holes in lower left corner of each certificate. Four certificates recording the education of a surgery student, Claude LeLorin, signed by Louis in his capacity as provost of the …cole de Chirurgie and as Professeur Royal des …coles. The first two certificates, signed by Louis as provost, are dated May 28, 1770; they document LeLorin's successful completion in 1769 of De la Faye's and Goursaud's courses on surgical ailments and their treatment. The two certificates are signed by De la Faye and Goursaud respectively; they also bear the signature of fellow provost Toussaint Bordenave (1728-82). The second two certificates are signed by Louis in his capacity as Professeur Royal des Écoles; they state that LeLorin successfully completed Louis's courses in physiology and hygiene in the years 1770 and 1772. These certificates are dated May 19, 1772 and February 16, 1776 respectively; they also bear signatures of the École's provosts.Louis, one of the most eminent surgeons of the eighteenth century, was instrumental in freeing French surgeons from the Paris medical faculty. He was the first surgical candidate to undergo a public examination, and the first in one hundred years to defend a thesis in Latin. He served the École as professor of physiology for 40 years, and was awarded numerous honors, the most important being the permanent secretaryship of the Académie Royale de Chirurgie. He is also known as a pioneer in medical jurisprudence (see G-M 1730, 1731) and as a co-inventor of the guillotine. Hirsch.

        La Palingénésie Philosophique, ou Idées sur l' état passé et sur l' état futur des Etres Vivans.

      Ouvrage destiné à servir de Supplement aux derniers écrits de l' auteur ... Genève, C. Philibert & B. Chirol, 1770. 2 volumes. 8vo. pp. xxvi, 431; pp. ii, 448. Contemporary calf, richly gilt ornamented spines with 2 black gilt lettered labels. Original edition. Most probably the rarest of Bonnet's publications on theoretical biology. "Yet Bonnet was less doctrinaire than his colleagues; he supported, for example, a very elastic thesis of the germ cell, which according to him, was not only "an organized body reduced in size ... " but "every kind of original preformation out of which may result an organic whole, as of his immediate principle". This theory, which Bonnet christened "palingenenis," set forth the functional and structural notion of the cell, which was not stated formally until a hundred years later" (DSB II, 287). A fine copy.

        An Elegy, to the memory of the most noble and valiant John Manners, late Marquis of Granby; a Lord of the Privy Council, and Captain General of all His Majesty’s Forces, &c.

      Printed for the author and sold by Hawes Clarke and Collins 1770 - with a half-title, dustsoiled, short tear in margin of two leaves, catchword ‘AN’ on last leaf (see below), pp. 24, 8vo, disbound A seemingly unrecorded printing of an elegy on the death of the Marquis of Granby, undated but almost certainly published in the year of his death. Although there is a catchword on the final leaf of this volume, we have found no record of any book that it might have once been part of: it was not the elegy included in Michell’s ‘Poems; on various subjects. Viz. Four pastorals, an elegy, an anacreontic ode, Aquafortis, a satire’ published in 1771 under a similar imprint (ESTC T125623, BL only). ESTC lists several other works by Michell ‘printed for the author’ between 1765 and 1772, none described as containing an elegy and only one recorded in more than 2 copies. (Not in ESTC or Worldcat)

        Nieuwe oostersche fabelen. Amsterdam, heirs of the widow of Jacobus van Egmont, [1770]. 8vo. Contemporary red half sheepskin, gold-tooled spine.

      Dohmen, In de schaduw van de Scherazade (no copy located); Oprechte Haerlemsche courant (27 February 1770); Opregte Groninger courant (3 March 1770); Vaderlandsche letter-oefeningen, 4, part 1 (1770), p. 236. Only copy located of the first and only edition of an anonymous Dutch translation of 42 stories from Sa'di's Gulistan, also known as The rose garden, "probably the single most influential work of prose in the Persian tradition" (Encyclopædia Iranica). Completed in 1258, Sa'di's Gulistan is a collection of stories and poems dealing with the major issues in human existence, and includes personal anecdotes such as the story of a trip to Mecca included in the present edition. The existence of the present Dutch translation has been recorded in the literature based on contemporary notices of its publication, but no copy had been located. Dohmen's recent study of eastern stories in the 18th-century Netherlands, for example, could only refer to the announcement in the 1770 Vaderlandsche letter-oefeningen. Notices of its publication also appeared in Dutch newspapers in Haarlem (27 February 1770) and Groningen (3 March 1770).With mostly marginal water stains throughout and occasional minor foxing, but still in good condition. The binding slightly soiled and rubbed, but also good.

        Illustrations of natural history. Wherein are exhibited upwards of two hundred and forty figures of exotic insects, according to their different genera; very few of which have hitherto been figured by any author, being engraved and coloured from nature, with the greatest accuracy, and under the author's own inspection ... With a particular description of each insect: interspersed with remarks and reflections on the nature and properties of many of them. To which is added, a translation into French.

      London, printed for the author, 1770-1782. 3 volumes. Large-4to (285 x 220mm). With 1 plain engraved key-plate and 150 handcoloured engraved plates. Later red half morocco, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lines and lettering, gilt edges. The very rare first edition of one of the most attractive English entomological works on exotic insects. Dru Drury (1725-1803) was the son of a silversmith. "By virtue of his marriage and inheritance of the family business he was a reasonably wealthy man who could afford to support his most serious hobby entomology. Drury's collection had great fame during his life time. He spent much time and money persuading others to collect specimens for him from foreign countries. He had a wide correspondence with entomologists around the world. Linnaeus (1707-1778) and Willliam Kirby (1759-1850) both named species after him" (Harvey, Gilbert & Martin, A catalogue of manuscripts in the Entomological library... 119). The majority of the fine plates were drawn and engraved by Moses Harris./"Although originally conceived as a publication to illustrate all the specimens that came in, Drury soon changed his mind and eventually decided to illustrate only those specimens which had not previously been drawn. Years later, the eminent British entomologist W.F. Kirby described the work as an 'Opus entomologicus splendissimus'!" (Gilbert, Butterfly Collectors and Painters, p.140). After his death his enormous collection of about 11.000 species was sold at a London auction for 614 Pound; it was Donovan who saw his unique chance and bought most of the British specimens. The text is in English and French. A fine copy, a few plates in the first volume with some occasional foxing.//Provenance: Bookplate of Ludwig Freude.//Nissen ZBI, 1160; Horn & Schenkling 5267 'Selten'.
