        Histoire générale des insectes de Surinam et de toute l'Europe... Troisième édition revue, corrigée et considérablement augmentée par M. Buch'oz... à laquelle on a joint une troisième partie qui traite des plus belles fleurs

      Paris: Chez L.C. Desnos, 1771. 1 volume ('...Tome Premier, Des Plantes de Surinam'), folio. (19 9/16 x 13 inches). Engraved hand-coloured additional allegorical title dated 1768, 72 hand-coloured engraved plates [1 folding] by J. Mulder, P. Sluyter and A. Stopendaal, all after Merian, each with the French names of the plants depicted added to image area. Bound to style in 18th-century diced russia gilt, covers with triple fillet border with floral spray cornerpiece, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt made up from various small tools A fine hand-coloured copy of the complete series of 'Surinam' plates by Merian : beautiful images of the plants and insects of Surinam, and one of the most famous natural history works of the 18th century. Merian was the daughter of the well-known Swiss engraver/publisher Matthaeus Merian. Her mother was Dutch, and after Matthaeus' early death she married the flower painter Jacob Marrell. Tradition has it that it was one of his pupils, Johann Graff of Nuremberg, who first taught Maria to paint, and certainly they later married. Two of Maria's primary interests were botany and entomology and the present work reflected that interest. The impetus to produce the present plates came when, having left Graff, she was shown a collection of tropical insects from Surinam. This inspired her, and, together with her daughter Dorothea, she embarked on a remarkably enterprising journey. They arrived in South America in late summer 1699 and stayed until June 1701 studying and recording the plants and insects.The results of their labours being the magnificent Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium , with 60 plates, was published in 1705. Later editions, including the present issue (... Tome Premier. Des Plantes de Surinam ), were extended to include an additional 12 plates by Maria's eldest daughter Johanna. Peter Dance writes of the work, that it was 'easily the most magnificent work on insects so far produced... [combining] science and art in equal proportions... Her portrayals of living insects and other animals were imbued with a charm, a minuteness of observation and artistic sensibility that had not previously been seen in a natural history book' ( The Art of Natural History [1978)). The printing plates for the present work were apparently bought by Desnos at the auction in Paris of the collection of 'Un Curieux de Paris.' This is possibly a reference to a member of the Huquier family. 'Huquier fils' of Paris published a reissue of the plates of the Metamorphosis... (without text) in about 1745 under the title Recueil de plantes des Indes (Hunt 524). The history of the plates between 1730 and 1745 is not known with any certainty, but Desnos notes that the previous owner of the plates had secured them in Amsterdam many years earlier. cf. Blunt (1994) pp.142-145; cf. Dunthorne 205; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.119; cf. Hunt 467 and 524; cf. Nissen BBI 1341.

        An Historical Collection of the Several Voyages and Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean

      London: Printed for the author, and sold by J. Nourse and T. Payne, 1771. 2 volumes in one, quarto. (10 1/4 x 7 7/8 inches). xxx, [2], 32, 24, 204, [4]; [4], 124, 20, [12], [40] pp. Half-titles, first with advertisement on verso. Volume one title and dedication as cancels. 16 engraved maps and plates (4 folding maps, 12 plates [6 folding]). 3pp. errata at end of first volume. Contemporary sprinkled calf, expertly rebacked retaining the original spine, flat spine divided into six compartments, red and black morocco labels in the second and fourth, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt Provenance: Sir Gilbert Elliot, 3rd Baronet and Lord Minto (1722-1777, treasurer of the Navy, armorial shelf label) A rare, early work arguing for the existence of a great Southern Continent and reviewing the early Spanish and Dutch exploration of the South Pacific, illustrated with fine maps and plates. "This important work, issued before the return of Captain Cook's expedition, is the result of Dalrymple's strong belief in the existence of a southern continent" (Hill). In it, the author translates and reviews twelve foreign accounts of voyages which he believed supported its existence, including the Spanish voyages of Magellan, Mendana's voyage to the Solomon Islands in 1595, and that of De Quiros in 1606. The second volume comprises the Dutch accounts including those of Le Maire, Schouten, Tasman, and Roggeveen. All are preceded by a valuable introduction, a section explaining the sources for his Chart of the South Sea, as well as chapters on the Solomon Islands, including a comparative vocabulary, and the "natural curiosities at Sooloo." Although Dalrymple's thesis on the existence of a southern continent would be disproved by Cook, Hill refers to Dalrymple as a cartographer "without peer" and as "a latter-day Hakluyt." Dalrymple made his career as a hydrographer to the East India Company. Originally offered the command of the Endeavour voyage to observe the transit of Venus, the command would be given instead to Cook, partly because of Dalrymple's insistence on being given an Admiralty commission. His disappointment and anger at the Admiralty is brought forth in the remarkable "dedication" of this work, in which he critiques previous British explorers of the region. Dalrymple would be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1771 and would later become the Hydrographer to the Board of Admiralty. In that capacity, Dalrymple would be responsible for preparing for publication the maps from the expeditions of Vancouver, Colnett and others. Two issues of the work were published. "[The] first issue of 1769 is exceedingly rare, and there are only a few copies extant. The regular trade edition was issued in 1770 [as the present copy]. The second volume, printed in 1771, is exactly the same in both sets. However the two issues of the first volume have different title pages and preliminary materials" (Hill). Among the changes to the dedication are variant dates (April 1, 1769; Jan. 1, 1769), along with amended text to the attack on Captain Samuel Wallis ("who left the arms of a calypso"; "who, infatuated with female blandishments, forgot for what he went abroad"). In the latter issue, both the title and dedication are present as cancels. This copy with the rare leaf following the vol. 1 introduction, headed "Monthly Review for May, 1769" (frequently lacking). Davidson, A Book Collector's Notes, pp. 36-7; Hill 410; Holmes (first issue) 32; Kroepelien 245; Spence 264.

        The Tropick-bird

      London: printed for Benjamin White, 1771. Hand-coloured copper engraving, on fine laid paper. Very good condition. A fine image from Catesby's "The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands," "the most famous colour-plate book of American plant and animal life...a fundamental and original work for the study of American species" (Hunt). Pictured alongside Wilson's storm-petrel, a small seabird, the red-billed tropicbird is one of three species of tropicbird, and it is commonly found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. They are large birds that resemble the pelican in their appearance as well as in their method of feeding, diving headfirst into the water to catch aquatic animals such as crustaceans. In his accompanying text, Catesby comments that "[t]hese birds are rarely seen but between the tropics, as the remotest distance from land. Their name seems to imply the limits of their abode; and though they are seldom seen but a few degrees north or south of either tropic, yet one breeding place is almost nine degrees from the northern tropic, viz. at Bermudas...They breed also in great numbers on some little islands at the east end of Puerto Rico." (Feduccia, Catesby's Birds of Colonial America (1985), p. 18) Trained as a botanist, Catesby travelled to Virginia in 1712 and remained there for seven years, sending back to England collections of plants and seeds. With the encouragement of Sir Hans Sloane and others, Catesby returned to America in 1722 to seek materials for his "Natural History"; he travelled extensively in the Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, and the Bahamas, sending back further specimens. His preface provides a lengthy account of the development of this work, including his decision to study with Joseph Goupy in order to learn to etch his plates himself, to ensure accuracy and economy. A lovely and important work, embodying the most impressive record made during the colonial period of the natural history of an American colony. The most significant work of American natural history before Audubon's "The Birds of America" . Cf. Anker 95; cf. Clark I:55; cf. Dunthorne 72; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 86; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p.85; cf. Meisel III:340; cf. Nissen BBI 336, IVB 177; cf. Sabin 11509; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 1057; cf. Wood, p. 282; cf. Amy Meyers and Margaret Pritchard, Empire's Nature, Mark Catesby's New World Vision , Williamsburg, 1998; cf. Feduccia, Catesby's Birds of Colonial America , pp. 18-19.

        Histoire générale des insectes de Surinam et de toute l'Europe... Troisième édition revue, corrigée et considérablement augmentée par M. Buch'oz... à laquelle on a joint une troisième partie qui traite des plus belles fleurs

      Paris: Chez L.C. Desnos, 1771. 1 volume ('...Tome Troisième, Des Plantes bulbeuse, Liliacées, Caryophyllées'). Folio. (19 9/16 x 13 inches). 69 hand-coloured engraved plates of flowers after Rabel. Bound to style in 18th-century diced russia gilt, covers with triple fillet border with floral spray cornerpiece, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt made up from various small tools A fine hand-coloured copy of the complete series of Rabel's plates to his 'Theatrum florae' : a fourth edition of one of the finest of the early 17th-century botanical works. The rarest of Desnos's extraordinary publications, the present work is an unacknowledged fourth edition of Daniel Rabel's Theatrum florae . It includes all 69 of the plates that are present in the first three editions (published without text in Paris in 1622, 1627 and 1633 respectively). The plate captions found in the earlier editions have been burnished out, but reappear almost word for word in the text. The additional text is, in part if not all, by Bu'choz. The plants depicted include all the most decorative flowers available to 17th-century gardeners and is truly '...une tres-jolie collection... qui ont ete dessinees & gravees d'apres nature' (see preface to vol.I). The fact that Rabel's name is omitted is not surprising since it is not included in any of the earlier editions, and it is only in the last 60 years that the work has been re-attributed to him. Rabel enjoyed a considerable reputation during his lifetime. Rightfully, he has now been rescued from obscurity, indeed, Blunt considered Rabel to be one of the two greatest French botanical artists of the 17th century, noting that his work, along with that of his successor Nicolas Robert, was 'consummate in its perfection' ( The Art of Botanical Illustration p.114). There is no mention of this later edition, but for references to the 17th-century editions, see: Blunt (1994) p.115; BM(NH) V,p.2088; Cleveland Collections 176 and 187; Hunt Printmaking in the Service of Botany 14; Nissen BBI 1575; L.

        THOMAS HUTCHINSON, ESQUIRE; CAPTAIN-GENERAL AND GOVERNOR IN CHIEF, IN AND OVER HIS MAJESTY'S PROVINCE OF MASSACHUSETTS-BAY, TO SAMUEL SEWALL ESQ GREETING. BY VIRTUE OF THE POWER AND AUTHORITY IN AND BY HIS MAJESTY'S ROYAL COMMISSION TO ME GRANTED TO BE...FIRST MAJOR OF THE REGIMENT OF MILITIA

      Boston. Aug. 5, 1771.. Broadside, 14¼ x 16 inches. Expertly silked, with some strengthening of fold lines on verso, mild loss along centerfold. Good. In a blue cloth folding case. A superb engraved colonial appointment from Loyalist Massachusetts Governor Thomas Hutchinson, completed in manuscript and signed by him during his first official year as governor of the colony. In the document, Hutchinson appoints Samuel Sewall, Esq. to the position of First Major for the Militia of York County, Massachusetts (now the southernmost county in present-day Maine), under the command of Col. Nathaniel Sparhawk. Hutchinson signed the document at top left, just beneath the seal. The manuscript portions of the document appear to be in the hand of Hutchinson's secretary, John Cotton, whose signature appears at the bottom of the document. Additionally, there are two witness signatures on the verso. ^This interesting document involves two important Massachusetts figures. Thomas Hutchinson was a merchant and politician, and the most prominent Loyalist in the province, ascending from lieutenant governor to governor of Massachusetts, serving in the latter role from 1771 to 1773 after a brief period as acting governor. Hutchinson was a nuisance to the Revolutionaries, as he continually sided with the Crown on the most hated of British taxes. Hutchinson fled Boston for London in late 1773, and remained in exile in England until his death in 1780. He also wrote an important history on the Massachusetts Bay, the first volume of which was published in 1764, with the third volume published posthumously. ^The appointee is Maj. Samuel Sewall, Esq. Sewall was a great-nephew of famed Salem witch trial judge Samuel Sewall. He was an accomplished inventor, furniture maker, architect, and engineer, credited as the first person to drive piles into deep rivers as a foundation for bridges. He designed and helped build the bridge that would later bear his name in York County, and helped design and erect the Charlestown Bridge in Boston in 1786. Very little is known of Sewall's military career; it is very likely that Sewall switched allegiances and served with the patriots during the Revolution, as he was a respected and influential citizen of York for the remainder of his days. ^The document was engraved by talented Boston silversmith, Nathaniel Hurd. Hurd was an expert with precious metals, especially the ornate decorations that characterized the rococo style of the period. He also produced a large number of bookplates for prominent citizens of Boston, trade cards, paper currency, table of weights and measures, various important prints, and engraved military commissions ordered by the provincial government, like the present example. Hurd died just six years after the date of this document, cutting short the career of an early American silversmith engraver who was at least the equal of Paul Revere, if not the best silversmith in Boston of his period. ^An outstanding colonial appointment signed by the penultimate British governor of Massachusetts, appointing a first-rate engineer from a prominent Massachusetts family to first major of the York militia.

Uncommon with just 25 copies world-wide noted by OCLC. Printed with the approbation of the chevalier de Borda as a shipbuilding manual for the use of the Gardes de la Marine, essentially the students of a distributed Royal Naval College. It was produced in dictionary form, without plates, with the intention of forcing the students to learn by observation in the shipyards; "it is on the shipyard, and with the book in hand, that a young man should follow the printed description: if the text was accompanied by figures, the reader would be tempted to stay in his room" (p.xxix). Ownership inscription verso of first blank, and elegant engraved book label to front pastedown, of Devis Decrès, future minister of the navy under Napoleon. Decrès had a brilliant career, a midshipman in 1779, he took part in operations in the Caribbean from 1780 to 1783, promoted to ship's ensign in 1782 at the time that he took part in the Battle of the Saintes. His ownership inscription gives his rank as lieutenant, placing purchase of this volume between 1786 and 1793, when he became a captain. Arrested as a noble at the outbreak of the French Revolution, he was reinstated in 1795 and placed in command of the Formidable, and in her took part in the attempted invasion of Ireland in 1796. He was promoted to contre-amiral in 1798 and commanded a light squadron during the invasion of Egypt, covering the landing in Malta. He took part in the Battle of the Nile in the Diane, managing to avoid the slaughter, and escaping to Malta, raising his flag in the Guillaume Tell. He was captured trying to break the blockade, and eventually exchanged back to France in August 1800. Napoleon personally presented him an with an honour sabre, and appointed him maritime prefect at Lorient. From 3 October 1801 to the fall of the Empire in 1814, he served as Napoleon's Minister of the Navy., being made a duke in April 1813. During the Hundred Days Decrès briefly resumed his post as Minister of the Navy. He died in a house fire in 1820.

        \"Guajave\" - Kolibri, Spinnen und Ameisen auf einem Guaveast. Tafel Nr. XVIII aus: Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium.

      Paris, Desnos, 1771. Vierte (4.) Ausgabe. Handkolorierter original Kupferstich auf starkem Büttenpapier. Gr.-Folio (53 x 35 cm), lose in Graphikhülle. Nissen BBI 1341; Pfeiffer: Die Werke der Maria Sibylle Merian. Nr. B, 7; Schmidt-Loske: Die Tierwelt der Maria Sibylle Merian. S. 81ff, Abb. 49-52; Wettengl S. 176 u. 230. - Aus der vierten und letzten Ausgabe. Die Tafeln dieser Ausgabe sind leicht von denen früherer Ausgaben zu unterscheiden, da sie oben rechts eine römische Ziffer als Tafelnummerierung und unten links eine Bezeichnung/Titel tragen. Diese wurden erst später in die Kupferplatte eingraviert und finden sich nur auf den Tafeln der vierten Ausgabe. Die vorliegende XVIII. Tafeln nimmt aus zwei Gründen eine herausragende Stellung innerhalb des Werkes ein. Zum einen unterscheidet sie sich durch ihr außergewöhnliches Sujet von allen anderen Tafeln. Während diese durch harmonische Kombination von Pflanzen, Schmetterlingen und deren Larven, ein eher friedliches Bild vermitteln, zeigt die \"Guajave\" Tafel in deutlicher, fast dramatischer Art und Weise den Überlebenskampf in der Natur - das Fressen und Gefressen werden. Zum anderen ist diese Tafel großer Bedeutung für die systematische Arachnologie (Spinnentierkunde) bzw. deren Geschichte. Der berühmte schwedische Naturforscher Carl von Linne (1707-1778), Begründer der modernen wissenschaftlichen Systematik der Tierreichs, nahm u. a. diese Tafel zum Anlass die große haarige Spinnen, von denen eine einen Vogel (Kolibri) erbeutet hat, Vogelspinne (Aranea avicularia) zu nennen und diesen Namen auch in seinem \"Systema naturae\" zu publizieren. Dies führte in der Folge dazu, dass heute innerhalb der Ordnung der Webspinnen (Araneae), eine etwa 800 Arten umfassende Familie als Vogelspinnen (Theraphosidae) bezeichnet wird. - Zustand: Das Blatt insgesamt nur leicht, die unbeschnittenen Blattränder etwas stärker gebräunt, letztere auch mit kleineren Randläsuren. Insgesamt gut bis sehr gut erhaltenes Blatt in schönem Handkolorit. Versand D: 5,00 EUR Merian Maria Sibylla, Surinam, Spinnen, Arachniden, Theraphosidae, Kupferstich,

        Lettres Américaines sur les Parlemens. 1770 & 1771

      [S.n.] (1771?), [S.l.] - First edition. Published unbound. Stitched. 44, (4) p. A fictional correspondence between R** and T*** "deux Américaines originaires du Port-au-Prince dans l'Isle de S. Domingue. Le premier réside a Paris depuis quelques années" (two Americans from Port-au-Prince on the island of Saint-Domingue. The first lives in Paris for some years). The letters are dated between December 1770 and April 1771. The text is attributed to Voltaire and it is in favour of Maupeou's jurisdictional reform. René Nicolas Charles Augustin de Maupeou (1714-1792) as the chief minister of the French King made a revolutionary attempt to install the enlightened despotism in France, through the suppression of the power of the parliament by destroying its system, and the favour of the royal authority. He also made efforts to uniform the judicial system throughout the country. Voltaire praised this revolution, applauding the suppression of the old hereditary magistrature, and justified the reform in several essays, among them this one. Scarce and interesting publication, we could trace only two copies in institutional holdings in the US. [Not in Sabin.]. First page blank, but title in ink. First and last pages slightly chipped and stained. Overall in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [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], 1771. 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.

        THE GENTLEMAN AND CITIZEN'S POCKET-ALMANAC, BY WILLIAM EVITT, PRINTER. FOR THE YEAR 1772. FITTED TO THE USE OF PENNSYLVANIA AND THE NEIGHBORING PROVINCES. CONTAINING A MUCH GREATER VARIETY OF CURIOUS AND USEFUL LISTS, TABLES, &c. &c. THAN ANY OTHER ALMANACK, PRINTED ON THE CONTINENT OF AMERICA

      Philadelphia, 1771. 24mo. Contemporary marbled wrappers. Wrappers lightly worn. One contemporary manuscript inscription on one unprinted leaf, a few manuscript annotations in margins of printed pages. Light age-toning, offsetting on blank leaves. A near fine copy. An extremely rare colonial-era Pennsylvania almanac compiled and published by William Evitt. Drake records copies at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the American Antiquarian Society, but the AAS does not list this edition in their online catalogue. AAS/NAIP records the ten previous annual issues of this almanac, but not this edition, perhaps the last published with this title. However, AAS does hold a copy lacking the last leaf. This copy is in contemporary wrappers and has fourteen additional blank leaves, only one of which has a single inscription ("Thursday 10th [December] came Nancy"). A few contemporary annotations, however, are found in the margins of the printed text. In addition to the calendar, the almanac provides an extensive list of the "representatives, sheriffs, coroners, commissioners, and assessors throughout the province of Pennsylvania." Information on court sessions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and Virginia is also included. A rare surviving copy of perhaps the last issue of this popular Pennsylvania almanac. Not in OCLC or NAIP; listed in Evans (the imperfect AAS copy).

      chez Charles-Antoine Jombert, A Paris 1771 - In-8 de (2)-LXIV-404-(2) pp. 1 planche repliée, veau brun, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin citron, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Première édition française dans la traduction du botaniste François de Paule Latapie (1739-1823) qui a ajouté une Description détaillée des jardins de Stowe, avec une planche dépliante gravée et un Discours préliminaire sur l'histoire des jardins. Whately (1728-1772), secrétaire de Lord Grenville, chancelier de l'Echiquier, eut la possibilité de fréquenter la fine fleur de l'aristocratie et par là même ses jardins. Son ouvrage adopte une approche qui s'apparente à celle d'un artiste : construisant son jardin comme un peintre une oeuvre, il dessine une structure, des formes ; il est attentif aux couleurs, cherche à les harmoniser en fonction des saisons, soucieux d'effacer ce qui pourrait paraître convenu, artificiel. L'Angleterre alors se passionnait tant pour les jardins irréguliers que pour l'architecture gothique, voyant en eux l'image et le symbole de l'indépendance, le refus du pouvoir absolu. Dans son introduction, le traducteur souligne les difficultés pour un Français, épris de la rigueur des jardins dessinés par Le Nôtre, de souscrire à ceux qui sont ordonnés selon les idées. Bel exemplaire. Ganay, Bibliographie de l'art des jardins, 87.

Doppelmayr, war einer der bedeutendsten Instrumentenbauer seiner Zeit. Seine Geräte zeichnen sich durch Schönheit und Sorgfalt der Herstellung aus. Da die Waagen des 18. Jahrhunderts ziemlich ungenau waren, steht mit der hier beschriebenen Skalenwaage erstmals ein wirkliches Präzisionsinstrument zur Bestimmung des spezifischen Gewichts von Flüssigkeiten zur Verfügung. Als Grundlage für die Eichung verwendet er die Berechnungen von J. H. Lambert. - Stellenweise etwas stockfleckig. Rückenschild erneuert, sonst gut erhalten. - Poggendorff I, 277; Druckschriften von G. F. Brander Nr. 11 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

(ids) John Millar, 1735-1801.Millar was a Scottish lawyer and philosopher who counted among hisfriends and acquaintances, Hume, Lord Kames, Adam Smith and Thomas Reid.Both the American and French revolutions had his support, and he waswhiggish when it was rather more circumspect to be toryish. He washeavily influenced by Smith's Theory of Economic Determinism, while thepresent title also show Montesquieu's affect on his thinking. Thisedition comes between the third published in London in 1779 and thefourth published in Edinburgh in 1806. It was probably unauthorized andwas no doubt issued in response to the events in France.

        AN ASTRONOMICAL DIARY: OR, ALMANACK FOR THE YEAR OF OUR LORD CHRIST, 1772

      [Boston, 1771. 12mo. Dbd. Lightly foxed. Very good. A variation of the original Russell edition (which had two engravings by Revere), this is one of several editions published in New England, though this one lacks any imprint information. NAIP notes that this edition, with its advertisement on the last page for Daniel Jones, is almost certainly the edition printed and advertised by Edes & Gill. The nature of the engravings in this almanac becomes more puzzling due to a charge in Paul Revere's Day Book which reads, "Messrs Edes & Gill Dr / To Engraving 3 plates for Ames Almanack / 2-14-0," on December 21, just five days after his entry for two engravings for Russell's Ames almanac. It is unclear, then, whether this almanac should be considered a pirated edition with imitations of Revere's engravings, or whether there is sufficient evidence to believe that these engravings are genuine Revere engravings, albeit copies of his original engravings. The engraving on the titlepage is of a dwarf, Miss Emma Leach, who had recently traveled to Boston. Of the two engravings in the interior, the first depicts political writer Jonathan Dickinson, under his pseudonym of "The Patriotic American Farmer." The second shows Mrs. Catherine Macaulay, a famous British intellectual and author, and correspondent of many of the leading Boston patriots. Macaulay's book on English liberties was an important source for Otis, Adams, Dickinson, and other American leaders. This almanac is also notable for including an essay on a beekeeping technique used in Greece. Nathaniel Ames Jr. continued writing this almanac series after his father died in 1764 and until the beginning of the Revolutionary War. He was a successful doctor, ardent Anti-Federalist, and local politician.

        Comoediae sex, ... commentario perpetuo illustratae. Accedunt interpretes vetustiores, Aelius Donatus, ... Frid. Lindenbruchii observationes ... Curavit Arn. Henr. Westerhovius. The Hague, Pierre Gosse, 1726. 3 parts in 2 volumes, bound as 1. 4to (26 x 21.5 x 12 cm). With 2 title-pages printed in red and black, each preceded by the same frontispiece, and a full-page portrait of Terence. Mottled richly gold-tooled calf (1771 or shortly before), each board with the crowned Zwolle coat of arms above a panel with "ZWOLLÆ." as centrepiece. The binding was made by the First Zwolle Prize bindery, tentatively associated with Simon Clement, with the manuscript prize inscription from the rector of the Zwolle gymnasium dated summer 1771.

      Dibdin, II, p. 475; for the binding tools: Spoelder, Prijsboeken, p. 725; J. Storm van Leeuwen, Dutch decorated bookbinding in the eighteenth century, vol. IIB, pp. 1018-1027. Celebrated edition, the first to be edited by Arnoldus Henricus Westerhovius, of all six comedies by Terence, his only known work, still regarded as highlights of classical literature and the earliest well-known works by an African-born author, with extensive commentaries and indexes. Dibdin described it as "a sumptuous and valuable edition", which "will be found to contain the learned observations of Lindenbrogius, of Calphurnius upon the 'Heautontomorumenos', of Eugraphius, enlarged from two Leiden MSS. and the commentaries of Donatus. The index is copious". With a manuscript inscription in Latin, dated summer 1771, by Friedrich Ludwig Abresch, rector of the Gymnasium in Zwolle, presenting the book as a prize to Wilt Gerrit Jan van Rhemenshuizen (1757-1827), when he advanced from the second to last to the final class. From 1781 on he was member of the "Ridderschap" of Overijssel, and in 1814 he was appointed member of the Provincial States of Gelderland (NNBW IX, cols. 860-861). The binding (12 cm thick!) was made by what Storm van Leeuwen calls the First Zwolle Prize Bindery (active 1766-1789), and he suggests it was operated by Simon Clement (ca. 1725?-1795).
