Da Sie nun [...] in Wien der beste sind, so macht es mir wahre Freude, Sie diesem wirklich wahren Musikliebhaber zu führen zu können, mit der bitte den Herrn Baron in seinen musikalischen angelegenheiten alle mögliche Dienste zu leisten. um der Madame Streicher zu beweisen daß ich Ihrer nicht vergessen habe, so werde ich den Herrn Baron von Schladen bitten ein Forte piano quartett von mir für Sie mit zu machen. ich hoffe daß Ihnen selbiges gefallen wird [...].

Im Jahr 1799 trennten sich ihre Wege. Rombergs Schule für Violoncello zählt noch heute zur Standardliteratur für den Cellounterricht. -

        The bye-laws, and regulations of the Marine-Society, incorporated in MDCCLXXII: with the several instructions forms of indentures & other instruments used by them. Also a list of subscribers, from May 1769 to June 1772. To which is prefixed, the historical account of this institution, with remarks on the usefulness of it.

      London MDCCLXXII 1772 - 12mo., xi + (1) + 62 + (2) + 139 + (1)pp., with an engraved title-page, contemporary calf, spine fully gilt in compartments with flower and leaf devices within raised bands, red morocco label, just the smallest snag at foot of spine, but still a fine copy originally from the library of Sir Timothy Waldo, one of the original subscribers,> with his armorial bookplate on pastedown. First edition: rare. Higgs 5565. Not in Goldsmiths. [ESTC, OCLC & COPAC find only a few libraries with copies: 6 in B.Isles, but only Harvard, Houghton Lib., elsewhere]. The 'historical account' (62pp.) was written by Jonas Hanway himself for it was he who, in 1756, had got together a group of shipowners and merchants to form a society to supply men and boys for the sea service and to equip them with the proper gear. During the war years, 1756-1763, some 10,625 men and boys were thus fitted out for sea duty. At the close of the war, however, the activities of the Marine Society lapsed for financial reasons until 1769 when it was left a substantial legacy. 'Now its schemes were directed chiefly toward discovering destitute or deserted boys, fitting them out, and apprenticing them in the merchant service. In 1786, the Society acquired a ship, where 150 to 200 boys would be 'separated from their evil companions, cleansed from their rags and filthiness, softened into habits of subordination and obedience, inured to gentle disciplines. In terms of numbers affected and money involved, the Marine Society developed into one of the more imposing eighteenth-century charities. During its first half century (from 1756 to 1808), over 27,500 boys were equipped for service at sea and more than 36,000 landsmen volunteers were clothed as seamen for His Majesty's ships. Receipts came to nearly £246,000.' [David Owen, English philanthropy,> 1965, p.60]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE HISTORY OF THE LATE WAR IN NORTH-AMERICA, AND THE ISLANDS OF THE WEST- INDIES, INCLUDING THE CAMPAIGNS OF MDCCLXIII AND MDCCLXIV AGAINST HIS MAJESTY'S ENEMIES.

      London: Printed for W. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1772. - [4],viii,542pp. plus errata and eighteen folding engraved maps. Large quarto. Contemporary half calf and marbled boards, edges sprinkled red, gilt spine label. A bit of cracking to spine leather, boards slightly rubbed. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Light tanning, otherwise internally clean. A fine copy. The best contemporary account of the French and Indian War, justly celebrated for its cartography and textual content, and one of the great rarities of colonial Americana, complete with all maps and the elusive errata leaf. Virtually all of Mante's account relates to the war in North America, with detailed narratives of Braddock's campaign and the other frontier and Canadian campaigns of the conflict. The work is particularly desirable for its contemporary descriptions of Pontiac's War, a campaign in which the author participated as major of brigade to Colonel Dudley Bradstreet. In addition, the introduction includes an interesting account of young George Washington's escape in 1753 from assassination by an Indian who acted as his interpreter and guide. Mante evidently took great care to gather information that was both historically and cartographically accurate for the present work. The maps are praised by all bibliographers as being by far the best relating to the war, and include several seminal maps which are the most accurate produced to that time. They comprise: 1) "Fort Beau Sejour, & the adjacent Country Taken Possession of by Colonel Monckton" 2) "Lake Ontario to the Mouth of the River St. Lawrence" 3) [Map of Lake George and vicinity] 4) "A Plan of Fort Edward & Its Environs on Hudsons River" 5) "Communication Between Albany & Oswego" 6) "Attack on Louisbourg" [by Amherst & Boscawen] 7) "The Attack of Ticonderoga" [by Major General Abercromby] 8) "Plan of Fort Pitt or Pittsbourg" 9) "Guadaloupe" 10) "Attack on Quebec" [by Wolfe & Saunders] 11) "A Sketch of the Cherokee Country" 12) "The River Saint Lawrence from Lake Ontario to the Island of Montreal" 13) "A Plan of the Attack upon Fort Levi" 14) "River St. Lawrence from Montreal to the Island of St. Barnaby.& the Islands of Jeremy" 15) "A View of the Coast of Martinico Taken by Desire of Rear Adml Rodney" 16) "Part, of the West Coast, of the Island of Saint Lucia" 17) "Plan of the Retaking Newfoundland" [by Colville & Amherst] 18) "Attack of the Havanna" [by Albemarle & Pococke] Sabin writes of this great rarity: "Copies with all the maps are scarce. It is probable that but few were printed, though the large and beautiful plans and military maps (which gave it so great a value), must have made its production a work of much expense." The Streeter copy was bought by Sessler in 1967 for $900. CHURCH 1092. HOWES M267, "c." STREETER SALE 1031. FIELD 1003. SABIN 44396. BEINECKE, LESSER ANTILLES COLLECTION 283.

      A Londres, 1772. “new edition” - 1772 Spirit of the Laws Montesquieu Political Government French Democracy LAW “Useless laws weaken the necessary laws.” ― Montesquieu, The Spirit of the Laws In 1772, several different editions of Montesquieu’s ‘Spirit of the Laws’ was published, including two French editions and an English printing in London. ‘Spirit of the Laws’ is one of the most famous treaties ever written, especially on political theory. This work was so influential that world leaders such as Catherine the Great and the United States founding fathers applied the methods taught in this book to their culture’s future. This famed work found itself on the infamous ‘Prohibited Book Index’ in 1751 even though it was well-respected and well-read around the world. Montesquieu lists a few major points in his work; points that have resonated with government for centuries. These include: • Separation of power • Liberty and democracy are one in the same • The point of civil and criminal law is to ensure personal security • Qualities and flaws of governmental types Item number: #1027 Price: $750 MONTESQUIEU, Charles-Louis de De l'esprit des lois.

        RECOLLECTION.

      1772 - A poem entitled RECOLLECTION by Phillis Wheatley included in the March 1772 issue of THE LONDON MAGAZINE (pp. 134-135) bound with ten issues of LONDON MAGAZINE: or, GENTLEMAN'S MONTHLY INTELLIGENCER (Jan 1772 - Jul 1773). Contemporary half leather binding with marbled boards and red leather label on spine. Phillis Wheatley was the first African-American to publish a book of poetry, entitled "POEMS ON VARIOUS SUBJECTS, RELIGIOUS AND MORAL" in 1773. Several of her poems appeared earlier in various periodicals and this is one of those few. Born in West Africa, brought to America on a slave ship as a young child in 1761, Phillis Wheatley was sold as a slave to John and Susanna Wheatley in Boston. The Wheatley family tutored her and gave her an opportunity to write poetry. With its combination of religion and neoclassicism, Wheatley's poetry found an audience among Wheatley's friends and later in England. The poem entitled "Recollection" was first published by the London Magazine in March 1772, was subsequently reprinted in 1773, and was finally included in Wheatley first book in variant form. A scarce item from the first truly significant black American writer. Mason pp 141-144. Robinson p. 308. Joints tender and binding shows some wear. Text is clean and bright. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [JOSEPH BANKS] Letters on Iceland

      Containing observations on the civil, literary, ecclesiastical, and natural history; antiquities, volcanos, basaltes, hot springs; customs, dress, manners of the inhabitants, &c. &c. Made, during a voyage undertaken in the year 1772, by Joseph Banks, Esq. P.R.S. assisted by Dr. Solander, F.R.S. Dr. J. Lind, F.R.S. Dr. Uno von Troil, and several other literary and ingenious gentlemen. Written by Uno von Troil, D. D., First Chaplain to his Swedish Majesty, Almoner of the Swedish Orders of Knighthood, and Member of the Academy of Schiences at Stockholm. To which are added the letters of Dr. Ihre and Dr. Bach to the author, concerning the Edda and the Elephantiasis of Iceland: also Professor Bergman's curious observations and chemical examination of the lava and other substances produced on the island. With a new map of the island, and a representation of the remarkable boiling fountain called by the inhabitants Geyser. London : W. Richardson, J. Robson and N. Conant, 1780. Second edition, corrected and improved. Octavo, contemporary calf boards, expertly rebacked in matching modern calf with gilt ruled raised bands, red title label with gilt lettering, frontispiece folding map, pp xxvi; 400; contents crisp and clean. After accompanying Cook on his first voyage, Banks and Solander intended to sail on the second circumnavigation but raised objections over the size and capacity of the Resolution and Adventure. Banks had wished to bring a party of sixteen men to accompany his field work, and despite some compromises the Admiralty was in the end simply unable to meet his somewhat arduous demands. Instead, Banks voyaged to the remote and little documented realm of Iceland where a number of important social, scientific and topographical discoveries were recorded. Letters on Iceland was first published in Sweden in 1777; the first English edition appeared in 1780 (London : Richardson, Robson and Conant). It was the first major work in this language to inform a wider audience about Iceland. The second, revised English edition, was published in the same year. It includes a dramatic representation of Geyser, the famous boiling water phenomenon in the southwest of the country, from which all other geysers derive their name. A single copy of this second edition is recorded in Australian collections (State Library of New South Wales).

        Lettre de R. Ismael Ben Abraham, Juif Converti, à M. l'Abbé Houteville, sur son Livre intitulé, La Religion Chrétienne prouvée par les Faits.

      Chez C.L. Thiboust, A Paris 1772 - In-12 de XXVIII-(4)-205 pp., veau brun, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale. « Ouvrage du grand orientaliste français Étienne Fourmont (1683-1745), qui le rédigea à l'occasion de la publication, la même année, du livre de l'abbé Houteville La Religion Chrétienne prouvée par les faits. C'est une réfutation véhémente, exprimée à travers la voix d'un juif imaginaire, des préjugés théologiques entretenus en France à l'égard des juifs, même convertis. L'auteur dénonçait notamment la méconnaissance de la langue hébraïque et des langues orientales dans les milieux érudits français. « En Allemagne et en Hollande, comme il y a beaucoup de Juifs, et que les Langues Orientales y sont cultivées, s'il arrive quelque dispute littéraire, on ne s'étonne nullement de voir un Rabbin de la partie : les François souffrent, lorsqu'ils entendent parler d'un Juif : ils se défient du Juif converti, comme des autres ; l'esprit toujours préoccupé d'un Judaisme qui n'est plus, ils ne le voyent agréablement qu'après quatre ou cinq générations » (J. Comellas). Très bon exemplaire (petit accident à la coiffe de pied). [Attributes: First Edition]
