        Geschichte des Fräuleins von Sternheim. Herausgegeben von Ch. M. Wieland

      Leipzig, Weidmanns Erben und Reich, 1771.. 2 in 1 Band. XXII, 367 S., 1 Bl., 302 S. Marmorierter Lederband d. Zt. mit 2 farbigen Rückenschildern. Goed. IV/1, 592, 1. Erste Ausgabe. - Das Erstlingswerk der La Roche wurde sofort begeistert aufgenommen. Dieser wohl bedeutendste Frauenroman des 18. Jahrhunderts wird auch als der erste psychologische Roman der deutschen Literatur bezeichnet. Formal und inhaltlich abhängig von Richardsons Briefromanen (z. B. "Clarissa", 1748), sind aber hier, anders als beim englischen Vorbild, erzählerische Partien eingefügt, vor allem aber klingt ein neuer Ton in der Schilderung der Charaktere an: Die Typen werden mit alltäglichen Zügen individualisiert und mit empfindsamer Einfühlung dargestellt. Wieland, La Roches Vetter und Jugendliebe, begleitete das Buch mit einer Vorrede, Herder und Goethe, dessen "Leiden des jungen Werthers" (1774) die La Roche beeinflusste, nahmen es anerkennend auf. - Bestoßen, hintere decke mit kl. Wurmlöchern, Kapitale mit Läsuren. Die Seiten 241-288 sowie 289-302 aus Tl. II verbunden. Leicht gebräunt und gering stockfl., seitl. Schnitt am Ende mit kl. Tintenfleck.

        OEUVRES. L'Attaque des places - Le Traité de la défense des places - Un Traité pratique des mines, et un autre de la guerre en général, par un Officier de Distinction. [3 volumes].

      1771 - Amsterdam et Leipzig, Arkstée et Merkus, 1771. Trois volumes grand in-quarto (242 X 289) veau fauve marbré, dos cinq nerfs, caissons dorés ornés aux petits fers, larges dentelles en queue et tête, pièces de titre maroquin grenat et ocre, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Tome I : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre imprimé en rouge et noir, XX pages, 224 pages, (8) ff. de table des matières, 11 planches dépliantes ; Tome II : (1) f. de titre imprimé en rouge et noir, (3) ff. d'avertissement et table des articles, 182 pages, (15 ) ff. de tableaux, 9 planches dépliantes hors-texte ; Tome III : (9) ff. de faux-titre, titre imprimé en rouge et noir, préface, table des articles, 188 pages, (6) ff. de table des matières. Petit travail de ver dans la marge inférieure des six premiers feuillets, se limitant en suite à un trou de la grosseur d'une tête d'épingle jusqu'à la page 107, le tout sans aucune atteinte au texte. ÉDITION RARE réunissant les oeuvres à caractère militaire du Maréchal de Vauban, faite d'après l'édition de 1737-1742 publiée à La Haye par de Hondt. Elle est illustrée de trois jolies vignettes de titre dessinées et gravées par Jacob Van der Schley (1715-79), différentes pour chaque tome, de 20 PLANCHES dépliantes gravées sur cuivre (sur les 56 planches que doit contenir cette édition) et de 15 tableaux donnant les tables de « la force des garnisons & (d)es Munitions de guerre & de bouche nécessaires aux places de guerre ». L'ensemble se compose de trois volumes : le premier comporte "L'Attaque des places", le second contient "Le Traité de la défense des places", et le troisième et dernier réunit le "Traité pratique des Mines" et un "Traité de la guerre en général" « comprenant les qualitez & les devoirs des gens de guerre, depuis le général jusqu'au soldat [.] ». Ni le "Traité des mines" ni le "Traité de la guerre en général" ne sont de Vauban. Cependant l'ensemble servit à l'instruction militaire jusqu'au milieu du dix-neuvième siècle. L'ouvrage a curieusement été relié SANS les 25 planches simples du tome premier et les 11 planches du tome troisième qui concernent les mines ; l'ensemble du texte des trois volumes est lui bien complet. BEL EXEMPLAIRE imprimé sur beau papier vergé, à grandes marges, dans sa reliure en veau de l'époque, intacte. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Brief Enquiry into the State after Death, as Touching the Certainty thereof; and Whether we shall Exist in a Material or Immaterial Substance; and whether The Scripture Doctrine of a future State Be supportable by the Light of Reason

      Manchester: Printed for the Author 1771 - FIRST EDITION, engraved portrait frontispiece (giving the author’s name, which is not on the title-page), a bit browned and soiled in places, some messy pen trials, a couple of paper repairs, price erased from title-page, pp. xi, [12-] 31, 8vo, late nineteenth century half brown calf, ex-Wigan Public Library with their blind stamp on first and last leaf, signature of John [ ] Kettel on title and of George Kellet on recto of frontispiece, sound. This curious tract is ‘written up’ on the Chetham’s Library website, from which we quote: ‘Sylvanus Hibbert’s snappily titled A Brief Inquiry into the State after Death [&c] is a pamphlet that deserves to be better known for three reasons. Firstly, it advocates cremation some years before this became popular . Secondly, the pamphlet is quite rare. In a note in the Library’s copy of this book, James Crossley, Honorary Librarian of Chetham's and President of the Chetham Society, claimed that this was "perhaps the scarcest of Manchester tracts, certainly one of the most curious. Dr. Hibbert-Ware, Sylvanus’s nephew, cashed in and destroyed every copy he could find" . Lastly, the book has an engraved frontispiece of the author, which shows that either he didn’t care about his physical appearance or that he was simply having a laugh . if anyone knows of a less flattering caricature of a Manchester man then please let us know.’ And see The Life and Correspondence of Samuel Hibbert Wake, Chapter II.

Small 8vo, 155 x 92 mms., pp. xii, 134, with divisional title after page 66 of the Treatise for the Strictures on the Education of Children, and a half-title with "Baptist Library/ Stokes Croft/ Bristol" in a contemporary hand on the top margin, 20th century half calf, marbled boards, spine blocked in gilt, and the book plate of John Lawson on the front paste-down end-paper; front joint slightly rubbed and slight crack at top, but a very good copy. In the preface, Giles discloses that the work began life as a treatise on the education of children, which he "transmitted it by parts, through the channel of a valuable periodical publication." He was then entreated by friends to write a tract on marriage, and the present book ensued. There are no revolutionary surprises in the description of the marriage bond. The married woman is to stand in the same relation her husband as he is to God; her duty is to obey and serve him. "This subjection is not a slavish one; but as the body and members of it are to be governed, guided and directed by its head, to what is for their good and benefit; so the obedient wife will reverence her husband in all things...." Giles does not seem to have been married, nor have had children.

Behelzende deszelfs vertrek van Bourdeaux, en schipbreuk op een onbewoond eiland; wonderlyke kloekmoedigheid van een Hollandsch matroos ten tyde der schipbreuk; rampen en ongelukken aldaar aan land, welke hy beneffens nog elf anderen van de equipagie heeft moeten ondergaan; hy blyft eindelyk alleen over met eene mevrouw en haar zoon en zynen neger . Eene waare geschiedenis. Door hem zelven beschreeven. Gesterkt met een certificaat van dan heer Sevettenham, commandant van het Engelsch fort St. Marc des Apalaches.

      - Amsterdam, Petrus Conradi, 1771.20th century cloth. Woodcut vignette on titel-page. 132 pp.* Dutch translation of: Naufrage et aventures de Pierre Viaud, natif de Bordeaux, capitaine de navire, histoire véritable. Bordeaux 1768. - This book tells the extraordinary story of a French seaman who sailed from Bordeaux in February 1765 as mate in the Aimable Suzette, Captain St. Crie, bound for the West Indies. Forced by illness to remain on the small island of St. Louis, off the coast of Saint-Domingue (Haiti), Viaud enters into a partnership with a Haitian resident, monsieur Desclau, to trade goods to Louisiana. They hire a vessel, the Tigre, Captain La Couture, and sail with sixteen passengers and crew on 2 January 1766. During the voyage the ship springs a leak, and on 16 February 1766 runs aground and breaks up on an island off the coast of Florida. Viaud's account of his adventures somehow fell into the hands of the French scholar Jean Gaspard Dubois-Fontanelle who published it at Bordeaux in 1768. Exacly how much is the work of Fontanelle himself is uncertain, but it was an instant bestseller and became one of the most reprinted and translated works of the 18th century. After many years of debate and indecision, the basic framework (at least) of Viaud's account is now regarded as truthful (Howgego V, p.474-474). 'Probably the story of cannibalism accounted for the popularity of this narrative' (Huntress 80C).Not in Tiele or Cat. NHSM; Sabin 99414; Polak 9438. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [LIST OF MONIES OWED TO REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UPPER HOUSE OF THE CONNECTICUT GENERAL ASSEMBLY FOR THE OCTOBER 1771 SESSION, SIGNED BY ROGER SHERMAN, OLIVER WOLCOTT, AND OTHERS]

      [Np, but likely New Haven]. November 1771.. [1]p. plus integral docketing leaf. Folio. Backed with tissue. Faint old fold lines. A few small edge tears at folds, repaired. Minor soiling. Very good. In a red half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. List of monies paid to twelve members of the House of Assistants of the Connecticut General Assembly, signed by several of them, including two future signers of the Declaration of Independence, Roger Sherman and Oliver Wolcott. Sherman is notable as the only person to sign all four of the major foundational documents of United States: the Continental Association, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the U.S. Constitution. He also served on the Committee of Five that drafted the Declaration of Independence, and later drafted the Connecticut Compromise for the U.S. Constitution, which proposed a bicameral representative government and guaranteed equal representation in the Senate for every state, no matter its size. Wolcott signed not only the Declaration, but also the Articles of Confederation, and later served as Connecticut's fourth governor. This document was likely written in New Haven, which served as the joint capital of Connecticut with Hartford until 1776, hosting the October legislative sessions. In addition to Sherman and Wolcott, it is signed by representatives William Pitkin, Robert Walker, Abraham Davenport, William Samuel Johnson, and Joseph Spencer. The remaining members are noted as having been "paid by receipt." It is docketed on the verso and signed by Joseph Trumbull, deputy to the Assembly. For his time in the House of Assistants (later the Connecticut Senate), Sherman was paid £6/18/0; Wolcott, £5/15/4.

        Principles of Penal Law.

      1771 - [Eden, William, Baron Auckland (1744-1814)]. Principles of Penal Law. London: Printed for B. White and T. Cadell, 1771. xxvii, 331 pp. Octavo (9" x 6"). Contemporary calf, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Some rubbing to extremities, a few small ink spots to boards, front joint starting at ends. Annotation to front free endpaper, early owner signature (of John Graham) to head of title page, text notably fresh. * Second edition. First published in 1771, this important treatise reached its third and final edition in 1775. "The first person to review English criminal law at once critically and comprehensively was William Eden. [His] book is a pioneer treatise. It discusses topics which, under the influence of Bentham and Romilly, aroused much attention in the last years of the eighteenth and the first years of the nineteenth century; and it discussed them effectively, because, as the author says in his closing chapter he had tried to establish his principles not as abstract propositions, 'but rather as argumentative inferences, interwoven with, and to be collected from, observations on the penal systems of different governments. (.) The conclusion which he draws, that the reform of the English penal code 'is become an important and almost necessary work,' is irresistible. (.) The book is a remarkable precursor of that new era of agitation for the reform of the law, which, under Bentham's leadership, was soon to begin.": Holdsworth, A History of English Law XII:364-65.

"Although its title was hydrodynamics, its subject matter was essentially hydraulics...The first volume was original only in arrangement and treatment, but it still provides an excellent picture of the state of knowledge (as he saw it) at Bossut's time. The experimental data presented in the second volume were largely new, and noteworthy even today are his comments on the difficulty of large-scale experiments versus the falsity of those at too small a scale."-Rouse & Ince, History of Hydraulics, p. 127. Bossut (1730-1814), assumed the chair of hydrodynamics established by Turgot at the Louvre.
