        Leçons de clavecin et principes d’harmonie par Mr Bemetzrieder. M. DCC. LXXI. Avec Approbation, & Privilege du Roi

      - Paris, Chez Bluet, Libraire, Pont Saint-Michel [1771]. VIII, 362 pp. in-8 grande. Vignette xilografiche e numerosi esempi musicali n.t. Prefazione di Denis Diderot. Testo in francese. Timbro al frontespizio, nota di appartenenza all’ultima pagina. Solida rilegatura in mezza pelle rossa con fregi e titolo in oro al dorso (angoli smussati). Lievi macchie all’interno, aloni di umidità diffusi alle ultime pagine. Legatura allentata con lievi guasti in corrispondenza dell’antipagina, peraltro esemplare in buono stato di conservazione. Prima edizione di questo importante metodo sul clavicembalo, scritto dal compositore e teorico francese in collaborazione con il filosofo Denis Diderot e sua figlia Angélique, allieva dello stesso Bemetzrieder [RISM B/VI 1, p. 132; Eitner I, p. 430; Hirsch I, p. 56; Gaspari I, p. 330]. "Leçons de clavecin è una dotta conversazione a quattro voci nel vivo d’un insolito esperimento musicale: il salotto della casa di Diderot sede delle lezioni di musica ne è il laboratorio; la strumentazione scientifica è costituita da un clavicembalo dell’estensione di cinque ottave, accompagnamento obbligato delle dimostrazioni armoniche del dialogo; esso è intonato dalle mani promettenti dell’élève, Angélique, la quattordicenne figlia di Diderot, il quale ne aveva in precedenza seguito l’apprendistato musicale; infine, l’esperimento ha lo scopo di dimostrare l’efficacia e la superiorità del metodo elaborato dal maître de musique, un tale Antoine Bemetzrieder, metodo didattico che viene volta a volta discusso e commentato dal philosophe, Diderot stesso. Il dialogo è un capolavoro estetico e filosofico, una sintesi ragionata delle discussioni musicali francesi seguite alla fortuna delle rivoluzionarie idee di Jean-Philippe Rameau, alle successive polemiche di Rameau con d’Alembert e con Rousseau, e, dopo la morte di Rameau nel 1764, all’affermazione europea di modelli estetici preromantici incentrati sull’ideale dell’espressività" [Modelli storico-culturali dell’Educazione musicale, P. Gozza, p. 44]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In 1768 he published Tans'ur's Royal Melody Compleat. then combined it with Aaron Williams's Universal Psalmodist. and under the title The American Harmony issued four editions between 1769 and 1774. Towards the end of the American Revolution, Bayley pirated the title and partial contents of another popular work, Andrew Law's Select Harmony (Cheshire, CT, 1779), despite Law's vigorous protest. Bayley compiled five other tune books as well as two tune supplements for metrical psalters. and he published John Stickney's Gentleman and Lady's Musical Companion (Newburyport, 1774). His chief contribution was to circulate in New England a large repertory of mid-century British sacred music." Richard Crawford and Nym Cooke in Grove Music Online. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Little White Heron; Hibiscus Illustration

      The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands 1771 - Paper Dimensions: 14 x 20 in. Framed Dimensions: 29.5 x 23 in. Copperplate engraving with original hand-color. Catesby’s Natural History is considered to be one of the great achievements of natural science in the 18th century. Exploring most of what is now Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas, Catesby recorded his research in notebooks that he filled with drawings and the packing-cases of preserved speciments. They were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of heretofore unknown wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. The text recorded his personal observations, as well as theories, legends, and folktales gathered over the course of a decade.

        (Die Prillwitzer Idole – berühmte Fälschung in der Art der Würzburger Lügensteine). - Die gottesdienstlichen Alterthümer der Obotriten, aus dem Tempel zu Rhetra, am Tollenzer-See. Nach den Originalien [...].

      Berlin, Carl Friedrich Rellstab, (1771).. Quart. Zeitgenössischer marmorierter Pappband (etwas lichtrandig, Kapitale berieben). 20 Bll., 151 (+1) S., mit 1 gestochenen Karte und 52 teils ausfaltbaren Kupfertafeln. Sehr gutes Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe. – Die Prillwitzer Idole sind eine Sammlung bronzener Reliefs und Figuren altslawischer Götter, die ein Vorfahr der Neubrandenburger Goldschmiedefamilie Sponholz im Pfarrgarten von Prillwitz bei Grabungsarbeiten gefunden haben wollte. Zahlreiche Figuren waren mit Runen verziert, die auf den sagenumwobenen Ort Rhetra deuteten, ein wendisches Heiligtum, das die Gelehrten seinerzeit mit Prillwitz identifizierten. Tatsächlich handelte es sich bei den Prillwitzer Idolen jedoch um Fälschungen, die vermutlich in der Goldschmiedewerkstatt der Familie Sponholz gegossen wurden. Anders als die Würzburger Lügensteine – eine paläontologische Fälschung aus den 1720er Jahren, die mglw. als Inspiration diente – wurden die Prillwitzer Idole in Fachkreisen kritischen Stimmen zum Trotz lange Zeit für authentisch gehalten und entfalteten eine beachtliche Wirkung: Dem bis dahin völlig erfolglosen jüngsten Sproß der Familie Sponholz, Gideon, brachte sie den Ruf eines Fachmannes für mecklenburgische Altertümer und einen nicht unbeträchtlichen finanziellen Gewinn ein (den er jedoch schnell wieder verjubelte), darüberhinaus legten sie den Grundstein für das Sponholzsche Raritätenkabinett – das erste Museum Neubrandenburgs. Die im Laufe der Zeit vorzugsweise auf Sponholzschem Besitz auftauchenden weiteren Relikte als auch das Raritätenkabinett der Familie wurden von Herzog Carl von Mecklenburg-Strelitz aufgekauft und in sein Lustschloß Hohenzieritz in der Nähe von Prillwitz verbracht, wo sie als die „Heiligen von Rhetra“ den Höhepunkt der Altertumssammlung bildeten. Erst 80 Jahre nach ihrem Auftauchen entlarvte der Mecklenburger Historiker Friedrich Lisch die vorgeblichen Relikte als Fälschungen.

        Voyage autour du Monde, par la Frégate du Roi La Boudeuse et la Flûte L'Étoile; en 1766, 1767, 1768 & 1769.

      Paris, Saillant & Nyon, 1771. 4to. Near contemp. hcalf. Gilt spine with gilt lettering. Very light wear along edges. Stamps on title-page. (8, incl. htitle),417,(1) pp., 20 engraved maps and charts (numb. 1-19 + 16 bis) of which 18 are folded, including the large world map. 2 engraved plates (numb. 1-2). Internally clean and fine, a few leaves with marginal brownspots. First edition of this famous circumnavigation, being the first voyage around the world with professional naturalists and geographers aboard. Bougainville was the first Frenchman, to sail around the world. In 1771, Bougainville published his travel log from the expedition under the title "Le voyage autour du monde, par la frégate La Boudeuse, et la flûte L'Étoile". The book describes the geography, biology and anthropology of Argentina (then a Spanish colony), Patagonia, Tahiti and Indonesia (then a Dutch colony). The book was a sensation, especially the description of Tahitian society. Bougainville described it as an earthly paradise where men and women lived in blissful innocence, far from the corruption of civilisation.Bougainville's descriptions powerfully expressed the concept of the noble savage, influencing the utopian thoughts of philosophers such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau before the advent of the French Revolution. Denis Diderot's book Supplément au voyage de Bougainville retells the story of Bougainville's landing on Tahiti, narrated by an anonymous reader to one of his friends. Diderot used his fictional approach, including a description of the Tahitians as noble savages, to criticise Western ways of living and thinking.Sabin, 6864.

        Fantastic Pre-Revolutionary letter regarding funding for Harvard and Native Americans: "But as Harvard College will receive for the future … in extending this good work of Civilizing and Gospellizing the Indians"

      Hackney, April 29, 1771. 7.25" x 9.5". "Letter Signed, ""Jasper Maudit,"" as treasurer of the New England Company, 2 pages, 7.25"" x 9.5"", Hackney, April 29, 1771, to Andrew Oliver, agent for the company who had just been recently installed as Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts. Clean fold separations, small loss at bottom left corner affecting text, else very good condition. Maudit, treasurer of The New England Company, a missionary organization charged with the Christian conversion and education of Native Americans, writes to Oliver concerning monies destined for a new missionary (""Mr. Kirkland""), funds directed toward Harvard for the same purpose as well as Oliver's resignation as secretary of the organization, thanking him for remaining in the post for an additional year to allow the company to seek a replacement. Maudit writes, in large part: ""… The Genl Court expressed their satisfaction at the way opening for the spreading the Gospel amongst the Indians and conciliating their minds to the English Interest. Mr. Kirkland's Character is very pleasing and we hope he will continue an useful Missionary. Dr. Wheelock's misapplication of the Money Collected here was resented in the Genl Court, and must have a very bad effect on any future Collections for America. The Company have ordered £750 to be remitted for the Curr[en]t Service on Account of your advance to Mr. Kirkland tho' our Income doth not exceed £700 pr Ann. — But as Harvard College will receive for the future, by the Increase of the Rent from Dr. Williams's Estate a clear £150. p[e]r Ann[um]. Sterling, they will have sufficient to bear the whole Expence [sic] of Mr. Kirkland's Mission, (and we moreover hope That they and our Commissioners will prevail with the Scotch Society to join them in extending this good work of Civilizing and Gospellizing the Indians,) especially as the College have £1000 in hand of the Doctor's donation unapplied. The latter part of your Letter intimating your intent to resign, was received with no small concern by the Genl. Court, we cannot part with the Services of one who has so zealously attended to, and forwarded the great business of our appointment with such general satisfaction, but with regrett [sic] — I am glad to find you have agreed to continue another Year, and I wish you would add one more; but if this cannot be complied with, I hope you will continue untill [sic] some others fit and willing to act in this important business, shall be recommended to the Company to make choice of one of them for their Treasurer …"" Andrew Oliver had been appointed Lieutenant Governor in 1770 (his commission was dated October 19, 1770 and he was sworn in on March 14, 1771.) Thomas Hutchinson was sworn in as Governor the same day: ""Harvard congratulated them, and the students gathered in Holden Chapel and sang appropriately: 'Thus saith the Lord: From henceforth, behold! All nations shall call thee blessed; for thy rulers shall be of they own kindred, your nobles shall be of yourselves, and thy governors shall proceed form the midst of thee.' Of all the rulers of Massachusetts whom Harvard has contributed there have been no better and more able, yet more unfortunate men than this pair."" (Sibley's Harvard Graduates, vol. 7, p. 407) Jasper Maudit (1696-1771) was a London merchant and religious ""dissenter"" who served as the agent for Massachusetts Bay from 1762 to 1765. He also served as treasurer of the New England Company. (See Jasper Maudit Agent in London for the Province of the Massachusetts Bay 1762-1765, 1918; Craig Yirush, Settlers, Liberty, and Empire: The Roots of Early American Political Theory… 2011, p. 1; Philip F. Gura, Jonathan Edwards: America's Evangelical, 2006, p. 175) Oliver Cromwell commissioned the New England Company in 1649 and was granted a Royal Charter after the restoration of the monarchy by Charles II in 1662. The company's charter provided for the promotion and propagation of 'the Gospel of Christ unto and amongst the heathen natives in or near New England and parts adjacent in America."" To this end the company sent missionaries not only to New England but to New York and Virginia as well. Until the outbreak of the Revolutionary War in 1775, the North American administration was run by the Governor of Massachusetts. Following American independence, the company refocused its activities on the remaining North American British colonies in Canada and the West Indies: a mission it continues to fulfil to the present day (see http:///www.newenglandcompany.org for more information)."

        An Essay on the First Principles of Government, And on the Nature...

      1771. 2nd ed. London, 1771. Priestley's First Substantial Political Work, An Influence on the Constitutional Thought of the American Founding Fathers Priestley, Joseph [1733-1804]. An Essay on the First Principles of Government, And on the Nature of Political, Civil, And Religious Liberty. London: Printed for J. Johnson, No. 72, In St. Paul's Church Yard, 1771. xvi, 300, [4] pp. Includes two-page publisher advertisement. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5"). Later quarter speckled calf over speckled-paper boards, lettering piece and gilt fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Very light soiling to boards, a few tiny gouges to board edges, some chipping to spine ends, corners bumped and lightly worn, hinges partially cracked. Moderate toning to text, light foxing in a few places, internally clean. $500. * Second (stated) edition, one of two issues from 1772, and the third edition overall if one includes the Dublin reissue of the first edition (1768). First published in London in 1768, Priestley's Essay was his first substantial political work, one that influenced several American founding fathers, such as John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. It expands the humanitarian beliefs in his Essay on a Course of Liberal Education (1765), which took issue with the authoritarian educational philosophy favored by John "Estimate" Brown in his Thoughts on Civil Liberty. Priestley argues for a liberal political philosophy as a matter of morality and a prerequisite for social progress. Adams and Jefferson owned copies of this book. A note in Sowerby says Jefferson often recommended it to others and cites a letter from 1802 in which he says it expressed the principles of the U.S. Constitution and their practical development in many of its articles.
