        Les règles de la bienséance et de la civilité chrétienne, divisées en deux parties

      Metz: Jeean-Baptiste Collignon, Imprimeur de Son Excellence Monseigneur l'Évêque, 1772 - Rare Metz edition of this classic French courtesy book by La Salle (1651- 1719). Reprinted innumerable times since its first appearance in 1702, it was a standard of the genre well into the 19th century. La Salle's book aimed at teaching children the elements of civility and courtesy, not simply as social ornaments, but as specifically Christian virtues. This rare edition from Metz, except for the preliminaries, is entirely set in "civilité" type - a font first designed and cut by Granjon in the 16th century in Antwerp. Based on French handwriting on the day, it received its name from its use in Erasmus's CIVILITE PUERILE in 1559, and was thereafter frequently used in courtesy books. There are no copies in American or British institutions, and OCLC locates only one copy in Europe (Switzerland) "Sixième édition, revue & corrigée". 8vo. [16], 255 pp. Contemporary paper boards, last few leaaves dog-eared, lower corners of a few leaves stained, final few leaves dog-eared, very good. OCLC: 718557211 (one location; none in US); cf.

        THE ANNUAL REGISTER, OR A VIEW OF THE HISTORY, POLITICS, AND LITERATURE, FOR THE YEAR 1758 [through 1805]

      London. [Various dates].. Forty-eight volumes bound in forty-seven. Uniformly bound in contemporary tree calf, spines gilt, leather labels. Uniform small stain on spines; head of spine lightly chipped on a few volumes. A few cracked or tender hinges, but overall very solid. Volume from 1772 rebacked to matching style. Contemporary library bookplate in each volume (excepting the last six volumes and the volume for 1772). Light foxing and toning, heavier in a few volumes. Some slight worming to a handful of volumes, primarily in margins and not affecting text. Overall, a handsome, very good set in contemporary, uniform bindings. An extensive run of this vast compendium of British politics, life, and lore, from its first issue in 1758 through 1805. The REGISTER, which was created by Edmund Burke (1729-97) and edited by him through 1765, was conceived to be a contemporary history of current events; the first volume opens with a "History of the Present [i.e. French and Indian] War." Subsequent issues contain important accounts of the American Revolution and other momentous world events. Published continuously to the present day, the publication's website has this to say: "[THE ANNUAL REGISTER] is a primary source text for historical research and (for the recent and current annuals) a current affairs reference work. From world politics to society weddings, from the latest scientific discoveries to the weather, from the year's best-selling novels to obituaries of authors and other public figures - THE ANNUAL REGISTER provides detailed historical background and a wealth of new information for research." This copy, which is primarily comprised of various later editions of each volume, has the bookplate of the Georgetown, South Carolina Library Society in the front of each volume, with a manuscript date of December 10, 1807. As a library copy, it was certainly used by both the learned and general populace of the area, and is interesting evidence of book ownership and availability in the South in the Federal period. An essential work for anyone interested in the politics and current events of the time. The 1776 volume contains one of the earliest English printings of the Declaration of Independence.

      Per Gio. Battista Stecchi, e Ant. Giuseppe Pagani,, Firenze, 1772 - In-8° (220x150mm), pp. (4), LXVIII, 204, (2) di indice, (1) di errata, legatura posteriore m. pergamena con titolo calligrafato al dorso. Diffusi aloni al margine interno dell'intero volume, peraltro non intaccanti il testo. Annotazione con commento relativo alle testi dell'opera manoscritta da mano ottocentesca alla carta finale bianca. Edizione originale, rara. Il volume, seguito del precedente trattato del 1769, sostiene la necessità di liberalizzare il commercio nella Toscana leopoldina, mantenendosi però nel contempo favorevole alle vecchie leggi suntuarie. Esso fu incluso dal Custodi nel ventesimo volume della parte moderna dei suoi "Scrittori classici italiani di economia politica". Marx dedica a questo libro un intero paragrafo nel capitolo sui Fisiocrati delle Teorie sul plusvalore. Il Paoletti (Croce, Bagno a Ripoli, Firenze, 1717-Villamagna, Bagno a Ripoli, 1801), pievano di San Donnino a Villa Magno, presso Firenze, e professore nel seminario di San Miniato, fu altresì agronomo e acuto trattatista di materie agricole.

        Jerusalem Delivered

      London - J. Dodsley, 1772 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two volumes bound in full leather with gilt titles to the spines, and engravings to the title pages. Torquato Tasso (1544 1595) was an Italian poet of the 16th century, best known for his poem La Gerusalemme liberata (Jerusalem Delivered) (1580), in which he depicts a highly imaginative version of the combats between Christians and Muslims at the end of the First Crusade, during the siege of Jerusalem. John Hoole (1727 1803), was a translator, born in London, and was principal auditor in the India House (1744-83). He translated Torquato Tasso's Jerusalem Delivered (1763), and Ariosto's Orlando Furioso (1773-83), as well as other works from the Italian. He is described by Sir Walter Scott as a noble transmuter of gold into lead. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is some wear to the extremities including rubbing and a couple of small ink stains to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark. There is an ink inscription to the front blank endpaper of Volume I. Overall the volumes are in very good condition..

        Opuscules de chirurgie.

      Paris, G.Desprez, 1768-1772. - 2 tomes en 1 volume in-4; T.I : (8), 253, (3); T.II : VIII, 306, (2) pp., plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges, présence d'habiles restaurations (coiffes, coins, mors), petit manque de papier à 1 f. (pp. 61-62 de la seconde partie), avec manque de quelques lettres ne gênant pas la compréhension du texte. Bel exemplaire, à très grandes marges. Ouvrage rassemblant l'oeuvre de l¿auteur. Morand fut un pionnier de la neurochirurgie, rapportant plusieurs observations dont une intervention réussie sur un abcès temporo-sphénoïdal (T.I, pp. 161-168). "It was one of the first, if not the earliest example of a completely successful operation for abscess in the substance of the brain." (Walker). Les autres observations sur le sujet concernent des plaies à la tête, des suppurations du cerveau, une fracture étendue du crâne. Le chapitre II de la seconde partie (pp.17 à 144) est consacré à la taille. Morand s'intéressa beaucoup à cette intervention. Il avait déjà fait paraître un traité sur ce sujet en 1728 et fit un séjour en Angleterre en 1729, pour apprendre auprès de Cheselden la taille de la pierre par l¿appareil latéral. Morand adapta ensuite la méthode de Cheselden en la simplifiant. Il fut le premier en France à pratiquer de façon délibérée une taille hypogastrique, parfaitement décrite, mais qui ne retint pas la faveur de ses contemporains. Elle sera remise en honneur par Jean Baseilhac (Frère Côme) dans la seconde moitié du siècle. Morand rapporte qu'il adopta le principe (déjà mis en pratique par Abulcasis) d'opérer le malade en position déclive, 150 ans avant Trendelenbourg, qui laissa son nom à cette position. Par ailleurs Morand rapporte l'observation célèbre (préalablement publiée dans les Mémoires de l'Académie royale des sciences) de la femme Supiot, atteinte d'ostéomalacie (T.II, pp. 224-235). D'importants chapitres sont consacrés aux plaies d'arme à feu. On trouve un mémoire sur l'amputation à la hanche, selon une technique personnelle, et des observations sur des sujets variés. Sauveur François Morand (1697-1773), né à Paris, devint comme son père chirurgien. Il fut l'un des chirurgiens les plus novateurs de son époque. Il fut censeur royal et chirurgien en chef de l'hôpital de la Charité, puis chirurgien en chef de l'Hôtel des Invalides. Il a laissé son nom à une structure du cerveau : ergot de Morand (décrite dans Mém. Acad. Sci., 1744). Garrison & Morton, 4851 ; Walker, A history of neurological surgery, 181.

He also carried on a successful japanning (varnishing) business there. In about 1750 he began to make experiments in letter founding, and produced the wonderful series of types now named after him. His first book, the Virgil of 1757, was also the first to be printed upon wove paper (manufactured by a process that he invented). In 1758 he be came printer to Cambridge University. All of his books bear show fine craftsmanship and a refined sense of design. In the last few years before his death, Baskerville published a few Latin classics in quarto and duodecimo. All these bear the marks of unabated genius even in his declining days: and suffice, had he printed nothing else, to distinguish him as the first typographer of his time" (T. B. Reed in Old English Letter Foundries). Gaskell, Baskerville, 47. Lommen, The book of the books, passim: "Baskerville's books and his types were extremely influential". Brunet, V, 718. Moss, II, 675.

Spines have five raised bands with blind-stamped gilt rules and a pasted-on, crimson leather title block with blind-stamped gilt lettering and rules. The gilt is somewhat worn and faded and the title blocks have darkened. All volumes are aged, soiled and shelf-worn. Spine ends and corners are worn, chipped, cracked and/or frayed to the boards to varying degrees. Hinges are cracked and/or split to varying degrees.

Beginning with Vol. II, all volumes have a bookplate with a coat of arms and "H. Holland Edwards, Pennant Ereithlyn, North Wales" on front paste-downs. Presumably, these volumes were part of the library of the Rev. Howell Holland Edwards, Rector of the Second Portion of Waddesdon from 1794-1798 or '99. Another volume from his library (a bound volume of The Old Bailey Reports, previously belonging to Narcissus Luttrell) has found its way into the Harvard Law Library.

        Voyages de Richard Pockocke, membre de la Société Royale, & de celle des Antiquités de Londres, &c. en Orient, dans l'Egypte, l'Arabie, la Palestine, la Syrie, la Grèce, la Thrace, &c. &c. &c.

      J P Costard, Paris 1772 - 6 volumes: viii+485 pages; 500 pages; 501 pages; 479 pages; viii+456 pages; 466 pages. Duodecimo (7 1/4" 4 1/2") issued in original vellum with labels to spine. 1st French edition translated from the second English edition. Richard Pococke was an English prelate and anthropologist. Spelling in the French [Peckocke]. He was Protestant Bishop of Ossory (1756-65) and Meath (1765), both dioceses of the Church of Ireland. However, he is best known for his travel writings and diaries. Pococke was born in Southampton and educated at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, receiving a Bachelor of Law degree. His father was Rev. Richard Pococke and his mother was Elizabeth Milles, the daughter of Rev. Isaac Milles. His parents were married on 26 April 1698. Pococke's uncle, Thomas Milles, was a Professor of Greek. He was also distantly related to Edward Pococke, the English Orientalist and biblical scholar. His family connections meant he advanced rapidly in the church, becoming vicar-general of the diocese of Waterford and Lismore. He seems to have spent far more time traveling than attending to his duties as a churchman and spent 1733-36 undertaking a series of tours in Europe. From 1737-42 he visited the Near East,[3] visiting Egypt, Jerusalem, Palestine and Greece. These travels were later published in his 'Description of the East' of 1743 and 1745, works which were praised by Edmund Gibbon. During the years 1747-60, Pococke made a number of tours around various parts of Ireland. The longest of these tours occurred in 1752, when he traveled to just over half of Ireland's counties. He kept a record of this tour, but did not publish it. It ended up in the library of Trinity College, Dublin. Eventually, in 1891, an edited edition of Pococke's 1752 tour was published by George Thomas Stokes. He was made bishop successively of Ossory, Elphin and of Meath in 1765. He spent many of his later years in travel throughout Britain and Ireland, publishing accounts of many of his journeys. He died during a visitation at Charleville Castle, near Tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland, in 1765. On his death, many of his manuscripts were given to the British Library. He was buried at Ardbraccan, County Meath, Ireland. Condition: 6 of 7 volumes. Volume 7 was published in 1773, a year later, and is usually not found with the six volumes published in 1772. Bound in the original velum, which has stiffened with age and chipped away at spine ends and on some volumes of the spine. This was first published in English in three part, bound in two, in 1743 and volume 2 in 1745 in folio format. Internally a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
