BAUDEAU, abbé Nicolas.
Paris: Didot, Delalain, Lacombe, 1771: Carlsruhe and Paris: Lacom. Paris: Didot, Delalain, Lacombe,, 1771: Carlsruhe and Paris: Lacombe, 1772.. Schumpeter's third and fourth textbooks of Physiocratic thought 2 works bound in one volume, octavo (190 x 120). Nineteenth-century polished calf and marbled boards, spine ruled and decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco spine label. Printer's device on title. Very good copies. I: First edition of Baudeau's finest economic work, "a compendious statement of Quesnay's views which, for clearness as well as for certain touches of originality, is far superior to anything from the pen of Mirabeau, Du Pont de Nemours, or Le Mercier de la Rivière" (Cossa). Baudeau here brilliantly refutes the Abbé Galiani, whose Dialogues sur le Commerce des Bleds had been published the previous year. The work is written in clear and simple terms - Turgot called it "un livre très clair et écrit, sur la fin, avec une chaleur douce qui en rendait la lecture intéressante" (quoted in Weulersse) - and met with great success as a general introduction to physiocratic thought. II: Very rare first separate edition, first published in the Ephémérides du Citoyen in January 1772. The work is divided into four sections, dealing with the natural requirements of man, society, reproduction, and the outlay of land-owners. Baden-Durlach was the only head of state to actually apply Physiocratic principles to the ruling of a country, a fact overlooked by Adam Smith when he wrote that "that system which represents the produce of land as the sole source of revenue a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Diderot, Denis.
Paris (1771). Folio, 253 x 393mm. 3 pages of descriptive text & 5 loose plates with their accompanying text sheet. Slight browning to margins, a little spotting otherwise very good. § The 5 plates and descriptive text for the entry of Sculpture Fonte des Statues Équestres from volume VIII of plates. Plates are numbered 1-5. Plate 3 is continued on a second sheet, Plate 4 is a double plate, and plate 5 is a triple plate.1 page (822) from volume XIV of the Encyclopédie (1765) including Observations sur les chevaux des statues équestres2 pages (497 & 502) from volume XV of the Encyclopédie (1765) including information on Équestre StatueWith some browning to a few leaves.This suite of plates is noteworthy as a record of the practises of sculptors of this period. The illustrations and their explanations are influenced heavily by the writing and descriptions of Germain Boffrand. Boffrand had served as the first architect of numerous 18th-century noblemen, and had been a witness to the casting of Louis XIV's statue by Giradon and Jean-Balthazar Keller. The statue was melted during the revolution, and only a smaller model remains, which can be found in the Musée du Louvre. On hearing of the troubles Lemoyne was having casting a similar statue of Louis XV, Boffrand sought to assist Lemoyne, recognising that he was the only remaining assistant who had taken notes at the earlier casting. Boffrand wrote his Description de ce qui a été Practiqué pour Fondre en Bronze d'un Seul Jet la Figure Équestre de Louis XIV, enabling Lemoyne to complete his work, although this statue was also later … [Click Below for Full Description]

Manuscript.
1771. 12mo. Unpaginated. 9 pp. manuscript entries.. This little book documents articles sold from ship's stores, as well as loans and payments made, in the course of a voyage of the ship "Royal Charlotte" from Suriname to Newport, RI, with a stop at St. Eustatius. "The Royal Charlotte" was a known slave ship, and William Vernon, mentioned several times in these entries, was prominent in the American slave trade. It is likely that this voyage of December 1771 - January 1772, was the third leg of a triangle trade voyage - carrying sugar from Suriname to Newport in exchange for slaves imported from West Africa. Named sailors are (?) Munro, Humph. Cochran, John Scott, John Turner, Lemuel Parmer, Aldrich Wiley, and John Foot. "Cory" is named several times as captain. Transactions include payments for rum, clothing, and "hospital money" subtracted from payment due to each sailor. Stab sewn. In plain paper wrappers on which is written "Brgt Charlotte Cory 1771 to Surranmae."

KIRSCHBAUM, Johann Michael.
6 pp. plus plates.Fifth edition, printed from the plates of the 1771 first edition, of an extremely rare and richly decorative weaver's sample book containing about 300 models for weaving cloth in all sorts of patterns (some wholly abstract, some with acorns, flowers, trees, etc.) and colours. The title-page indicates that it intended for master and journeyman weavers, as well as amateurs. Kirchenbaum (1725-1782) was a master weaver in Heilbronn. Some of the patterns create odd visual affects reminiscent of 1960s op-art. Others resemble patchwork quilt patterns. Since all follow the grid of the warp and woof they foreshadow today's digital art based on a grid of pixels. All editions are extremely rare. We have located only one other copy of the present edition, at the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam.The letterpress text provides explanations plate by plate and also includes the text of Kirchbaum's preface to the first edition of 1771 and the publisher's new preface for the present 1836 edition.With an 1839 purchase inscription. He or another early owner drew a weaving pattern on the back of one leaf in brown ink. This ink drawing has bled through, slightly affecting the pattern in plate 43. The book is otherwise in very good condition (remarkably good for this sort of practitioner's model book), with an unobtrusive water stain in many leaves and the fore-edge margin of one leaf extended. The binding is rubbed and there is a chip in the spine.

HEARNE, Samuel and Johann Reinhold FORSTER (editor).
16, 247, [1 blank]; [4], 289, [1] pp.A Dutch edition of Hearne's expedition in search of the Northwest Passage and the fabled coppermines. A masterpiece in the literature of exploration, it contains interesting details on natural history and the Indian tribes of the region. Travelling overland from the Hudson Bay to the Arctic, Hearne met with many dangers, and very realistically describes the life and customs of the North American Indians. Tracing the Coppermine River, he reached the Arctic Ocean on 17 July, 1771, thus establishing that there was no Northwest Passage through Hudson Bay. In spite of the obvious importance of Hearne's expedition, the results were only published in 1795, after La Pérouse had discovered Hearne's manuscript at Hudson Bay. The present Dutch edition was translated from Johann Reinhold Forster's expertly annotated German edition.Tickets to back pastedowns. Some wear to bindings. An excellent crisp and clean set.l Chavanne 4635; JCB 3966; Sabin 31184; cf. Lande, Canadiana 1220 (first edition).

[MARITIME HISTORY].
79, [1] pp., lacking frontispiece (pp. 1-2).Rare work detailing the Antwerp Feast of Our Lady of Victory on 7 October 1771, commemorating the Battle of Lepanto (7 October 1571), where the Holy League famously defeated the Ottoman fleet off the coast of western Greece. It opens with an account of the battle, followed by detailed descriptions of the commemorative festivities. At the time of the battle, the Ottoman Empire was regarded as a serious threat to Christendom and the victory encouraged false hopes of its imminent collapse. Pope Pius V instituted the annual Feast of Our Lady of Victory, which was changed into Our Lady of the Holy Rosary under Gregory XIII, and is today known as the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. Lacking the frontispiece, otherwise in good condition.l UniCat Belgium (7 copies); not in KVK/WorldCat.

After GEORGE STUBBS [1724-1806] British Artist
1771. Mezzotint, tipped onto backing sheet by corners, The discovery of this hitherto unknown state clears up much confusion and speculation on when the print was first printed. It has traditionally been grouped with three other prints of stallions published in 1771 by William Wynne Ryland (Lennox Boyd Nos. 19, 20 & 21). The previously earliest known impression of 'An Arabian belonging to John Warde' was published by Sayer & Bennett in 1777. Lennox Boyd, postulated by comparison with the other Ryland prints, that there were likely to have been two earlier states. including one published in February 1771. It is now clear that there was an even earlier edition published by Ryland in 1770. Although the state offered here has a publisher's imprint, later states evidently had much further work done by the engraver, providing more detail to the sky, the trees in the background, the plants and tree in the foreground and to the horse itself. The painting on which this print was based was commissioned by John Warde [1721-1775] of Squerryes Court near Westerham, Kent, and is still with the family. The horse was imported from Alexandretta in Turkey in 1762. Stubbs produced an etching himself of this painting (Lennox Boyd 17).

1771. 49 vols. Large 8vo, orig. wrappers, block-printed title labels in Chinese & Manchu on upper covers, new stitching. [Beijing: Wu ying dian, 1771].An important edition, this is the revised and enlarged version of the Manchu-Chinese dictionary first published by Emperor Kangxi in 1708. Our edition was compiled under the supervision of Fuheng (1720-70), a younger brother of the Empress and trusted brother-in-law of Emperor Qianlong.For Kangxi's grandson, Emperor Qianlong, "the most crucial element of Manchu identity was language...Hong Taiji's warning of the dire consequences that would follow if the Manchus' native tongue were allowed to decline is another sign that the Manchu elite had long recognized the importance of language. This concern was shared by emperors after 1644, but few rivaled Qianlong in their attention to this issue..."In 1771 he published a revised and enlarged version of a Manchu-Chinese dictionary, first published by Kangxi in 1708, explaining in the preface his hope that 'by disseminating this to my descendants, the officials, and the people, [Manchu] writing will be standardized and passed on generation to generation, and thereby made everlasting'."-Mark C. Elliott, Emperor Qianlong. Son of Heaven, Man of the World, p. 57.This encyclopedic dictionary "had thirty-five classificatory categories, subdivided into 292 sections and covering 18,000 entry words, including over 1,600 archaic and rare words. Each entry word was defined in both the Manchurian and Chinese languages. The uniqueness of this dictionary lay in its adoption of fanqie to ind … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio (32.5 x 20.5 cm). Two manuscript journals in French, written in brown ink on laid paper. Contemporary coarse brown paper wrappers, with the 1771 journal in loose bifolia (never sewn) inserted. [2], [2 blank], [11], [1 blank]; 18, [6 blank] pp. Two journals kept by the Dutch Lieutenant Colonel Volkier Rudolph Bentinck (1738-1820), usually called Rudolph or sometimes Rudolphus, in the Dutch and British army, who had earlier fought alongside George Washington in the British army in America. They give an intimate and very personal view of daily life in the army, especially social life. It does show Bentinck inspecting fortifications (at least once climbing to the top) and mines in Maastricht (including the fort on "Montagne de St Pierre" [= Sint-Pietersberg]), Den Bosch (Bois-le-Duc), Bergen op Zoom, Namur (also an armaments foundry) and elsewhere. It shows his enthusiasm for Captain Schoesters collection of battle plans ("Il me montra une fort belle collection de plans des battailles des deux derniers gueres" and later "Je passai chez Monsr de Shoester le matin, pour en tirer encore quelques informations concernant ma collection de livres et plans militaires") and he later views fortification plans with Colonel Carel Diederik du Moulin (1727-1793), a well-known Dutch fortifications engineer.Rudolph Bentinck had served as a Lieutenant in the British Royal American Army from 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Burney "turned to writing about the history of his own art, but determined that he would need to engage in research in France and Italy to augment his broad acquaintance with the relevant and available material in England. In June 1770 he left England on a tour of the leading cities of France and Italy... Burney's published account of this tour, The Present State of Music in France and Italy, established him as one of music history's keenest observers and most entertaining commentators." Kerry S. Grant in Grove Music Online.

WALCH, Carl Friedrich
Jena, verlegts Christian Friedrich Gollner bzw. (ab Bd. 7) in der Gollner und Rudolphischen Buchhandlung, 1771. 8vo. Zusammen ca. 3000 S. Zeitgenössische Pappbände mit Buntpapierbezug (Bde. 1-6) und einfacher Interimsbroschur (Bde. 7-8). 8 Bde.(kl., blasse St.a.T.)., Komplettes Exemplar von Walchs Hauptwerk. - Walch (1734-1799) zählt zu den bedeutenden Gestaltern des deutschen Rechts am Ausgang des 18. Jahrhunderts, ein Mann der Theorie und der gerichtlichen Praxis miteinander verband. Seine Wirkungsstätten lagen zeitlebens vor allem in seiner Heimatstadt Jena, wo er seit 1748 studierte (u. a. bei Johann August von Hellfeld), promovierte (1753) und sich habilitierte. Nach einem Ruf als a.o. Professor an die Universität Göttingen im Jahre 1755 kehrte er bereits ein Jahr später nach Jena zurück. Einen weitern Ruf nach Göttingen lehnte er ab, stattdessen trat er 1756 eine a.o. Professur in Jena und eine Assessorstelle am Jenaer Schöppenstuhl an. Im Jahre 1759 übertrug man ihm die o. Professur für sächsisches Recht, verbunden mit einer Assessorstelle am Jenaer Hofgericht. 1764 wurde er auf den Lehrstuhl für die Institutionen berufen, 1766 dann auf den Lehrstuhl für die Pandekten. Er war mehrfach Rektor der Universität Jena, trug den Titel eines geheimen Justitzrates von Sachsen-Gotha und Sachsen-Weimar.
