         Observations concerning the distinction of ranks in society. Under the following heads: I. Of the rank and condition of women in different ages. II. Of the jurisdiction and authority of a father over his children. III. Of the authority of a chief over the members of a tribe or village. IV. Of the power of a Sovereign over an extensive society. V. Of the authority of a master over his servants. ... The second edition, greatly enlarged.

      London: J. Murray, 1773. 8vo., (4) + xxii + 312pp., complete with the half-title and with the supplementary errata slip pasted onto foot of p. xxii, some leaves in signature F bound in wrong order (affecting pp.85-96), but all leaves present, a light marginal dampstain in first two leaves (i.e. half-title and title), handsomely rebound in the 18th century style in quarter calf over marbled boards, spine gilt and labelled with raised bands, vellum tips on fore-corners. A most attractive copy. Millar's most important work, first published in 1771. It contains 'a number of ingenious, progressive and penetrating ideas' [Hideo Tanaka in Dictionary of 18th Century British Philosophers>, vol.II, 1999, p.617]. 'In tracing the history of the distinction of ranks and upholding the personal liberty of the lower classes, Millar does not advance simple social theories such as materialism, climate or economic determinism; rather, he develops what might be called the multi-causal theory of society. He combines the characteristics of human nature and advancement of humanity with social, political and economic circumstances. Thus he synthesizes the real and the ideal in man and society. His synthesis is quite penetrating, and was highly regarded'. [op.cit. pp.617-618]. According to other commentators Millar's work was one of the earliest and finest examples of an empirical approach to sociology and shows both the influence of Montesquieu and of Hume's The Populousness of Ancient Nations>. Rendall [The Origins of Modern Feminism>, 1994] thought that Millar's was, for example, 'one of the most interesting of all 18th century historical studies of the condition of women'. This second edition is an almost unmodified reprinting of the first of 1771. 'The revisions and additions in the second edition are, with two or three exceptions ..., of minor significance, consisting chiefly of stylistic improvements, the occasional re-structuring of a paragraph, and the breaking down of the chapters into sections.' [William C. Lehmann, John Millar of Glasgow>, 1960, p.167]. It was Lehmann's view that Millar's Observations>, together with his equally important Historical View of the English Government> (1787), were 'characterized by a pervasive attempt to trace causes and effects in historical phenomena and by a strong emphasis upon the influence that economic factors have in shaping social and political institutions. Because of this stress on economic factors, some have seen in Millar's work a marked anticipation of Marx's historical materialism. Perhaps it would be fairer to see in it, with A.L. Macfie of Glasgow (1961)*, both a further development of the thought of Adam Smith, with differences in emphasis, and an important bridge between eighteenth and nineteenth century social thinking in general'. [I.E.S.S.>, vol.10, p.349]. *A.L. Macfie, John Millar: a bridge between Adam Smith and 19th Century social thinkers?>: Scottish Journal of Political Economy 8: 200-210.

         Discurso Sobre a Inutilidade dos Esponsaes dos Filhos Celebrados.

      1773 - Betrothals Are Illicit Without Parental Consent, Whatever the Jesuits Say Rebello, Bartholomeu Coelho Neves. Discurso Sobre a Inutilidade dos Esponsaes dos Filhos Celebrados sem consentimento dos Pais; Em que se Mostra ser elle de Direito Divino, Natural, das Gentes, Canonico, Patrio, E Civil de Todos os Povos da Europa. E se Mostra Offensiva de Todos Estes Direitos a Doutrina dos Jezuitas, que Propunhao Huma Illimitada Liberdade a Este Respeito, Asseverando Serem Indignas de se Observarem as Leis dos Principes Catholicos, Que Determinao Esta Necessidade. Dedicado ao Ilmo. E Exmo. Senhor Marquez de Pombal, Conde de Oeyras, Senhor das Vendas Novas, do Conselho de Sua Magestade Fidelissima, E Seu Primeiro Ministro de Estado, &c. &c. &c. Lisbon: Off. do Francisco Sabino dos Santos, 1773. [x], xvii, [1], 231, [1] pp. Half-title lacking. Octavo (6-1/4" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary mottled sheep, blind fillets and gilt-stamped title to spine, speckled edges. Moderate rubbing to extremities, a few light scuffs to boards, spine abraded with wear to ends, front joint partially cracked. Moderate toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, faint dampstaining to a few leaves. * Only edition. Rebello argues that betrothals are not legal without parental consent. In the dedication to the Marques de Pombal and the Proemio, the author refers to the "relaxada Moral Jezuitica" and notes that allowing disobedience to parents in matters such as betrothals (which Jesuits such as Sanches and Molina advised) might well also encourage disobedience to the king. As a magistrate, Rebello had been involved in several cases of such illicit betrothals. He reviews the writings of Church Fathers, papal bulls, and Councils on this matter, and on pp. 170-218, reviews the laws in Spain, France, Germany, Prussia, Holland and Italy. Porbase contains a record with an incorrect publication date of 1755. OCLC locates 3 copies, 2 in North America (Newberry Library, UC-Berkeley Law School). Not in Ferreira-Ibarra.

      Brunet III, col. 647; Cox II, p. 303; Hill 160. First French translation of one of the most popular 18th-century books on the Pacific, and the main source of early knowledge of the Pelew or Palau Islands in Micronesia. In 1773, the Antelope under command of Captain Henry Wilson was shipwrecked near one of the Palau Islands, a previously unexplored group. The crew managed to reach shore, where they were well treated by the natives. They built a small boat from the wreck, in which they reached Macao. They took Lee Boo, the son of Abba Thulle, King of the Palau Islands, with them to England where he made a very good impression. Unfortunately, he soon died of smallpox. George Keate (1729-1797), a friend of Captain Wilson and of Voltaire, composed the relation from the journals and oral communications of the Captain and some of his officers. Keate also published books on poetry and history. With manuscript owner's inscription on title-page. Binding worn along the extremities.

The House ordered 700 copies printed for itself and 100 for the Council on March 6, 1773" - Adams. "When [Samuel] Adams organized the correspondence committees in November 1772 and initiated the movement by publishing the 'Rights of the Colonists,' Hutchinson gave life to the movement by delivering before the General Court, on Jan. 6, 1773, an elaborately argued address designed to prove that since 'no line can be drawn between the supreme authority of Parliament and the total independence of the colonies' the Parliamentary supremacy must be admitted; and 'if the supremacy of Parliament shall no longer be denied, it will follow that the mere exercise of its authority can be no grievance'" - DAB. The complete text of this address is printed herein, along with other speeches made during the same session. These speeches immediately preceded the explosive publication of Hutchinson's letter back to England, leaked via Franklin. HOWES H854. EVANS 12856. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 97. DAB IX, pp.439-43.

"Il suffirait presque, pour présenter Paul-Henry Thiry, baron d’Holbach (1723-1789) — « le maître d’hôtel de la philosophie », disait Grimm de rappeler que la plupart de ses livres furent condamnés en France par le Parlement et mis à l’index à Rome. Né dans le Palatinat, il vit à Paris, et reçoit chez lui tout ce qui pense alors. Qui est-il ? Wolmar, l’athée vertueux de Rousseau ; mais aussi, selon Voltaire, qui craint pour sa propre royauté intellectuelle, "un diable d’homme inspiré par Belzébuth" ; Frédéric II, prudent, défend contre lui «l’ordre du monde» ; mais Diderot lui sait gré de faire «pleuvoir des brûlots dans la maison du père«. Le baron dérange : il a rompu avec la première génération des Lumières par son athéisme intransigeant et son matérialisme systématique, et sa volonté, partagée par Diderot et la «coterie holbachique», d’une pensée radicalement nouvelle en philosophie, en morale et en politique.

         Signer of Declaration of Independence Josiah Bartlett Autograph Document Signed 1773

      1773 - One of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, Josiah Bartlett (1729-1795), signed this 1773 directive to Constable Daniel Smith to pay Ensign Moses Judkins seven shillings and sixpence for five days’ service. Bartlett began his career as a doctor in Kingston, NH where he began to take an interest in politics and was elected to the Colonial Assembly in 1765. By 1767, he was colonel of his county militia and the Governor, John Wentworth, had appointed him Justice of the Peace. Bartlett joined the Assembly’s Committee of Correspondence in 1774 and was selected as a delegate to the Continental Congress in 1775. As a representative of the northernmost colony, Bartlett was the first delegate asked his opinion on whether to declare independence from Great Britain, to which he responded affirmatively. He went on to be one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, to sit on the committee that drafted the Articles of Confederation, and to serve as the fourth Governor of New Hampshire (1790-1794). Bartlett signed this document as Selectman of Kingstown which is also signed by John Wadleigh, another Selectman. Measures approximately 7 3/8” x 2 3/8”. Condition: There are a couple of water spots (one touches the signature) and the paper is unevenly cut. Generally in good condition and quite displayable.

         Description de l’Arabie d’Après les Observations et Recherches Faites dans les Pays même.

      Nicolas Moller, Copenhagen 1773 - xliii, 372 pp., 18 engraved plates hors text, of which 4 folding, and 7 maps of which 6 folding, letter press genealogical folding table, half title, title vignettes, new spine, preserving original full calf boards, brittle and worn, contents generally clean with only infrequent light marginal foxing and soiling, all edges red, plates 4 and 5 lightly offset, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary stamp verso front cover and on title page, stamp of Rev. Luke V. McCabe on title page. The famous account of the Royal Danish expedition (1761-67) to the Arabian Peninsula, the first scientific expedition to this area sponsored by King Frederick V of Denmark, and from which Niebuhr returned as the only survivor. The expedition faced continuous physical hardship and danger from the moment it failed to leave Danish waters against winter storms, until the loss of all its members, except Niebuhr, as a result of malaria in Yemen. Nonetheless, the scientific discoveries that were made and the array of manuscripts that were recovered, aroused lasting interest among Europeans, curious to hear about a part of Arabia that had previously been closed off. The plates include illustrations of food, shoes, clothing, inscriptions, coins, agriculture, military exercises in the Yemen, the mosques of Mecca and Medina, and maps of Oman, the Arab Gulf, Suez and the Red Sea. Niebuhr was famous for his map of the Yemen (55 x 35 cm) which he calculated by traversing the country and measuring the distances mile by mile. It was the map of the Red Sea that contributed to the British in India re-routing their cargoes via the Suez instead of around Africa. For the next century this map served further European explorers of Arabia. His map of the Arab Gulf is the earliest map to mention Kuwait. Niebuhr is also one of the first to call the country Yemen instead of Arabia Felix. His work still forms one of the most authoritative descriptions of Arabia and in particular Yemen. The first edition appeared in German in Copenhagen in 1772, and soon after, this edition in French. The second French version is by an anonymous translator. "He was the first European to mention the spread of the Wahhabi revolution, an Islamic fundamentalist movement which had a tremendous influence on the history of Arabia" (Waldman, 1992).

         Chart of New-Zealand, explored in 1769 and 1770, by Lieut: I: Cook, Commander of His Majesty's Bark Endeavour. Engraved by I. Bayly.

      1773 - London: Strachan & Cadell, 1773. 510 x 410mm. A landmark map: one of the most important maps in New Zealand's history: Captain Cook's map of New Zealand, engraved by I. Bayley for Hawkesworth's 'An Account of the Voyages. For making Discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere', the official account of Cook's first circumnavigation. Although New Zealand has been discovered by Abel Tasman in 1642, it was Cook who discovered that it was not part of the great 'Terra Australis' or Southern continent. Arriving at Poverty Bay on 7th October 1769 he took six months to circumnavigate the islands: as he sailed east of the Banks Peninsula he mistook it for an island; skirting south of Stewart Island he marked on this map as a possible peninsula.

         The Passions Personify'd, in Familiar Fables.

      8vo. London: Printed for J. Whiston and M. Lawrence, 1773. 8vo, contemporary full calf rebacked with later gilt-ruled, decoratively blindstamped calf. [ii], vi, 104 pp. Engraved frontispiece and twelve plates drawn and engraved by John Miller. Covers worn, hinges cracked, but a sound copy of an uncommon work inscribed. First Edition. Presentation copy, inscribed on flyleaf: "Henrietta Anne Fortescue / A Present from the Author". (Henrietta's signature appears on the title-page.) Halkett & Laing attribute this work to Edward Young, the author of Night-Thoughts; but everybody ascribes it to Herbert Lawrence, whose best-known work, The Life and Adventures of Common Sense: An Historical Allegory (first published in 1769 by M. Lawrence), uses a similar device of a personified Common Sense, who travels through time and comments on ancient and modern history. Edward Young, moreover, had died in April, 1765, so it would have been difficult for him to inscribe this copy in 1773. The twelve verse fables in the collection are ironic narratives involving such characters as "Honour, Vanity, and Content" and "Prudence, Dissipation, and Justice." NUC locates two copies of this work. Henrietta Anne Fortescue (née Hoare) was a Scottish artist; she died in 1841.

         Laurus [Laurel]

      [Nuremberg], 1773. Engraving, coloured by hand, by J.J..Haid. Very good condition. A very fine image from Trew's 'Plantae Selectae', one of the greatest of all eighteenth-century botanical books, drawn by the greatest of eighteenth-century botanical artists, George Dionysius Ehret. Linnaeus, wrote to Trew, in Latin, that "The miracles of our century in the natural sciences are your work of Ehret's plants...nothing to equal them was seen in the past or will be in the future."Christoph JakobTrew, a physician and botanist, had for a number of years been an admirer of Ehret's work. Ehret, a brilliant botanical artist, was unrivalled in his ability to "achieve realism, majesty, ineffable colour, all in one breathtaking look." (Hunt). Born in Heidelberg in 1710, he originally worked as a gardener and practised drawing in his spare time. His artistic abilities led him to the service of a Regensburg banker named Leskenkohl, and it was during this period that Trew met Ehret.Trew was to remain a friend and patron of Ehret's throughout his life, and by 1742, the germ of what was to become the present publication was already under discussion when Trew wrote to Christian Thran in Carlsruhe "Every year I receive some beautifully painted exotic plants [by Ehret] and have already more than one hundred of them...."Ehret moved to London in the late 1730s, where he painted the recently introduced exotics at the Chelsea Physic Garden and established himself as a teacher of flower-painting and botany. Discussions about the projected work continued by letter until 1748, when Johann Jacob Haid from Augsburg agreed to produce the engravings from Ehret's drawings.Gerta Calman Georg Ehret, Flower painter Extraordinary (1977) p.97; Dunthorne 309; Great Flower Books(1990) p.144; Hunt 539; Nissen BBI 1997; Pritzel 9499; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 15.131.

Binder's ticket 'Woolman, Stockton on Tees'. Occasional minor spotting, minor dust soiling to a few page corners. Fine copy. ' Some of them not describ'd before: Shewn in their natural size; and as they appear enlarg'd before the Lucernal Microscope; In which the Solar Apparatus is artificially illuminated.

         LA SAGESSE DU SOUVERAIN DANS LES MOYENS DE RENDRE LE COMMERCE FLORISSANT

      Leiden, Elie Luzac. 1773. Paperback. First edition. Blue paper wrappers. 8vo. 4, 84 pages, 22 cm. In French. Title translates to “The Wisdom of the Sovereign in Finding Ways to Establish a Flourishing Trade. ” Title in red and black and with engraved vignette. The author describes here the economies of different countries during the course of various eras. He posits that freedom of religion is one of the prerequisites for creating a prosperous national economy, examples of failure in that regard is France- who drove out the Huguenots and Spain and Portugal who expelled the Jews. “Certainly the Inquisition is blind, superstitious and cruel for pushing the Jews to desert Portugal and Spain - [eventually] bringing them to Amsterdam, where wise-men welcomed them with kindness. There, the [Jews] encouraged flourishing trade practices which they spread around the world, while in Spain and Portugal [trade] collapsed. That is why in order to populate our provinces and have them grow prosperous, our wiser nations should welcome the strangerÂ… and let all freely practice his religion” (p. 16) . A copy sold at auction for USD 984 in 2016. Significant dampstaining and edgewear. Minimal pencil markings that do not affect text. Later tiny photo of a house added to title page. Good condition.
