        Encyclopaedia Britannica; or, a Dictionary of Arts and Sciences compiled upon a new plan

      Edinburgh: for A. Bell and C. Macfarquhar; and sold by Colin Macfarquhar,, 1771. In which The different Sciences and Arts are digested into distinct Treatises or Systems; and The various Technical Terms, &c. are explained as they occur in the order of the Alphabet... By a Society of Gentlemen in Scotland. 3 volumes, quarto (262 × 200 mm). Contemporary reversed calf, skilfully rebacked to style with red and black morocco labels. Complete with half-titles, 160 engraved plates, 3 folding chemistry tables, and folding Grammatical table in vol. 2. Neat ownership inscription I. Balmanno dated July 1st 1791 to volume III, page 115. Corners skilfully restored, a few short tears, occasional foxing and the odd stain, plate 61 torn at head and frayed along fore edge slightly affecting the image. Withal a very good set. First edition of the "most famous of all the encyclopaedias in the English language" (PMM), which first appeared in one hundred serialized parts in 1768?"71. "The remarkable history of the Encyclopaedia Britannica had its beginnings in the collaboration of three Scots [possibly the sum total of the 'Society of Gentlemen'] who were inspired by the stormy triumph of the Encyclopédie of Diderot, and by their desire to improve on its shortcomings. Andrew Bell (1726?"1809) was an engraver, Colin Macfarquhar (c.1745?"93) a printer, and William Smellie (1740?"95) a printer and a scholar. All three lived in Edinburgh. The new encyclopaedia was to be compiled on a completely new plan: the principal subjects ?" some forty-five, all distinguished by titles printed across the whole page ?" were to be supported by another thirty lengthy articles, the whole being contained within one alphabetical sequence interspersed with numerous brief entries, supported by references where appropriate to the principal subjects. Some of the articles, notably those on medical subjects, extended to well over one hundred pages each. Thus, the editor attempted to have the best of both worlds: easy reference to individual items, terms and minor topics, combined with major treatment of important sciences and arts" (Collison, Encyclopaedias: their History throughout the Ages, p. 138). As Smellie notes in his preface: "Utility ought to be the principal intention of very publication." Contributors to this first edition included many of the leading lights of the Scottish Enlightenment movement such as David Hume, James Balfour, George Campbell, Lord Kames, and Sir James Steuart. The long article, nearly 50 pages in length, on bookkeeping, is by John Mair.

         L'Art de former les jardins modernes ou l'art des jardins anglois. Traduit de l'Anglais. A quoi le traducteur a ajouté un discours préliminaire sur l'origine de l'art, des notes sur le texte & une description détaillée des jardins de Stowe...

      à Paris, chez Charles-Antoine Jombert, 1771, in 8°, de 1f. LXIV-404pp., ill. d'un grand plan gravé se dépl. de jardins de Stowe, cart. papier marbré moderne genre ancien, rousseurs aux premiers et derniers ff. sinon bon exemplaire. Première édition française dans la traduction du botaniste François de Paule Latapie (1739-1823) qui a ajouté une description détaillée des jardins de Stowe. Thomas Whately (1728-1772), secrétaire de Lord Grenville, chancelier de l'Echiquier, eut donc la possibilité de fréquenter de près les jardins de Stowe House. Son traité est d'importance et se situe avant ceux de Walpole et Repton, établissant ainsi l'esthétique du jardin à l'anglaise, privilégiant les points de vue pittoresques au sein d'une imitation artistique de la nature. Tomas Jefferson fut très influencé par le traité Whately, dont il disait "While his descriptions in point of style are models of perfect elegance and classical correctness, they are as remarkable for their exactness. I always walked over the gardens with his book in my hand, examined with attention the particular spots he described, found them so justly characterised by him as to be easily recognised, and saw with wonder, that his fine imagination had never been able to seduce him from the truth". "The most comprehensive work on the theory of landscape design developed by the natural school before the time of Humphrey Repton" (Blanche Henrey). ¶ de Ganay, Biblio. de l'art des jardins, 87.

        Relation d'un voyage dans la mer du Nord, aux Côtes d'Islande, du Groenland, de Ferro, de Schettland, des Orcades & de Norwége; fait en 1767 & 1768. Par M. de Kerguelen Tremarec, Lieutenant des Vaisseaux du Roi, de l'Académie Royale de Marine, Commandant les Frégates la Folle & l'Hirondelle. Ouvrage enrichi de Planches.

      Paris: De l'Imprimerie de Prault, 1771 - Edition originale, in-4, à très grandes marges; viii, (titre en rouge et noir orné d'une vignette de Le Gouaz représentant des voiliers, dédicace ornée d'une vignette par Le Gouaz, avertissement, approbation de l'Académie Royale de Marine ), 220p., [3p. Approbation, Privilège, instructions pour le placement des Cartes et Estampes]; 14 cartes et vues dont 10 dépliantes, 4 estampes de Eisen gravées par Le Mire dont une dépliante. Reliure d'époque en veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges, avec l'ex-libris héraldiquede la Bibliothèque Larcher, gravé par Gamot, 1741 (Michel IV Larcher, marquis d'Arcy, 1714-1772, maître des requêtes au parlement de Paris). Petite tache marginale p.144 mais un bel exemplaire. Voyage divisé en quatre parties et un "Supplément? contenant le retour en Islande, le passage entre les isles aux Oiseaux, une description abrégée du Groënland, la description du port de Brandsoom en Norvège, des remarques sur les sondes? enfin le retour à Brest par la Manche." Le but du voyage principal était la protection des pêcheurs de morue en Islande. Sur la carte dépliante dressée par Bellin est située l'isle Rokol, à l'Ouest de l'Ecosse, que Kerguelen semble avoir découverte. L'ouvrage est destiné aux navigateurs et "moins fait pour ceux dont les jours coulent tranquillement à terre dans le sein de la mollesse, que ceux qui par état et par honneur passent d'un hémisphère à l'autre et bravent mille périls, ou pour enrichir ou pour servir leur patrie." (!) Les jolies planches de Eisen illustrent le combat d'un finlandais avec un ours, un lapon en traineau tiré par un renne, des samoïèdes avec leurs skis? Sabin 37616. Boucher de la Richarderie I,380: "ce qui donne encore de l'importance à cette relation, ce sont les directions que Kerguelen y donne aux marins sur la manière de se gouverner en naviguant de l'Islande vers la Norwège, dont les côtes présentent partout un aspect effroyable."

      By John Wynn Baker, F.R.S. Folding engraved frontis. 15, [1], 328 pp. 8vo, cont. sprinkled calf, spine gilt. Dublin: S. Powell, 1771. First edition of this amalgamation of Young's Six Weeks Tour through the Southern Counties (1768) and Six Month' Tour through the North of England (1769). Baker (d. 1775) published several works suggested by Young under the auspices of the Dublin Society. "Arthur Young thought all these books very valuable...and would have been pleased to edit them for publication in England, where they were very scarce, if he could have found a bookseller prepared to guarantee him against loss, but he could not do so. His opinion was shared by the Royal Society, which elected Baker a Fellow in 1771, and by the Royal Society of Arts."-Fussell, II, p. 53. "Young was an honorary member of the Dublin Society and probably attended some of its meetings. He praised the Society for many of its activities but felt that it spent too much of its generous parliamentary appropriations upon manufacturing and commerce and too little on agriculture. He especially criticized its attempts to foster the silk manufacture. He urged the Society to re-establish a model farm like that formerly operated by John Wynn Baker, but preferably located in a wasteland, not near Dublin. It should not attempt experiments but should rather exhibit practices well established. He also proposed a series of premiums to stimulate Irish agriculture -- for the culture of turnips, beans, and flax as parts of rational crop rotations, for the improvements of mountain and bog lands, and for tree planting."-Gazley, The Life of Arthur Young, pp. 121-22. The engraved frontispiece plate, which is folding, depicts a number of farming implements. A very good copy and quite rare. .

        Voyage autour du Monde , par la frégate du roi la Boudeuse, et la flûte l'Étoile; en 1766, 1767, 1768 & 1769. [with] Supplément au voyage de M. Bougainville; ou journal d'un voyage autour du monde fait par MM. Banks & Solander... Traduit de l'anglois, par M. de Fréville

      Paris: chez Saillant & Nyon, 1771. Together three volumes, octavo, the 'Voyage' in two volumes, with 24 maps and plates; half-titles in all three volumes; in fine contemporary French bindings of mottled calf, spines gilt, gilt arms on covers. Bougainville and Cook published together. The first French account of Cook's first voyage and the revised edition of Bougainville's narrative: a beautiful set in original French bindings with uniform provenance from a noble European library. The two works in three volumes were published as a coherent set, and the three volumes here have clearly always formed a set, with matching library labels showing continuous numbering, and matching coats-of-arms in gilt on their covers. Their bindings are complementary though not precisely uniform: exactly the same spine tools are used for the third volume, though in a sightly different pattern, while the edges of the third volume are stained red unlike the sprinkled blue edges of the first two.The first two volumes of the set contain the revised and augmented version of Bougainville's narrative of his circumnavigation, which had been published in its quarto format in 1771 (see previous entry). Often considered to be the "best" edition of the narrative, this second version adds a 'Discours préliminaire' on discoveries in the Pacific since Magellan which takes Cook's First Voyage (1768-71) into account. This copy corresponds to the first of the two distinct settings identified by Du Rietz in the Kroepelien catalogue.The third volume or Supplément contains the first French edition of the earliest published account of Cook's first voyage, the anonymous work nowadays attributed to the midshipman James Magra; the French edition adds an extensive 'Lettre de M. de Commerson à M. de La Lande. De l'île de Bourbon, le 18 avril 1771'. As Du Rietz points out in the Kroepelien catalogue, while there were two issues of this publication, one (as here) describing itself as the supplement to Bougainville's account, there is no evident priority between the two which should rather be seen as simultaneous issues.Magra's narrative of the Endeavour voyage, published first in London in the same year, was the first of a series of so-called "surreptitious accounts" of Cook's various voyages to appear in print, published anonymously some two months after the return of Endeavour and nearly two years before Hawkesworth's official account.

Louis-Charles Desnos (1728-1805) was a typefounder, publisher, and cartographer of Paris. Desnos was most noted for his mapmaking, serving as mapmaker for the King of Denmark. This work is a history of the alphabet, tracing its history from the Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Greeks to the development of the Roman alphabet. It also traces the history of writing instruments. These remarks are prefatory to Desnos's advertisement of a new type of writing paper he had developed, and the last eight pages of this work describe that paper. Title written in pencil on front wrapper. Wrappers bent and chipped at edges, and soiled. Pencilled notations on inside back wrapper. Light foxing throughout text.

Contemporary marbled boards, spine with black gilt lettered label. First edition of this scarce work, to which the author contributed also the drawings and engravings of the plates (except for the title-vignette which was done by Bissel). Otto Fridrich Müller (1730-1784) was the author of a splendid work on the zoology of Denmark 'Zoologia Danica'. As a person of the Age of Enlightenment his interest was broad and he was 'the foremost representative of the Linnaean period in Denmark' (Snorrason 1974). "From 1774 until 1784, he had an amazing and steady output of publications... In the fields neglected by Linnaeus and his followers, Müller made strong contributions to knowledge of Infusoria, Hydrachnidae, Tardigrada, Vermes, Mollusca..." (Damkaer p. 74).//Engelmann 567; Nissen ZBI, 2934; Carus 561: "O.F. Müller untersuchte in musterhafter Weise verschiedene Abtheilungen".
