Berlin: Haude et Spener,, 1773. Quarto (256 x 200 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco label to the spine, compartments richly gilt, foliate gilt edge-roll, edges stained green. Frontispiece and 18 other plates, maps and plans, all but 2 of them folding, 2 title-page vignettes, engraved headpiece, errata leaves bound at the rear. Minimal shelf-wear, tan-burn to the margins of the endpapers, light toning to the text, and occasional mild offsetting from the plates, paper flaw to the corner of Aa4 with minor loss, but none to text, overall a very good copy in superb unrestored contemporary condition. True first edition, predating the Paris edition by a year. Guiscahrdt was born in Magdeburg in 1724, the son of Huguenot refugees he was intended for the church, "and at Leiden actually preached a sermon as a candidate for the pastorate. But he abandoned theology for more secular studies, especially that of ancient history" (Britannica, 1911). He served under the prince of Orange during the campaigns of the War of the Austrian Succession in Holland 1747-8, and following the peace travelled to England to extend his researches into ancient military history. In 1757 he published his Mémoires militaires sur les Grecs et les Romain at the Hague, and, through the interest of Ferdinand of Brunswick joined the suite of Frederick the Great, where in a joking dispute with the king he gained the nom de guerre of Quintus Icilius, under which name he commanded a free battalion through the later stages of the Seven Years' War. Guischardt's "battalion, as time went on, becoming a regi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Some gentle rubbing and shelfwear to extremities and spine label. Internally in clean and pleasing condition, with bookplate of Gray's Inn Library to front pastedown. Paper repair to lower quarter of the title page with no loss to text; some separation of text block up to page 4, but holding firm in binding . Collates [4], 655, [17, index]: complete including the scarce folding plate for the General Plan of Navigable Canals plus the remaining 25 plates. Containing the first appearance of Some Account of Phillis, A Learned Negro Girl (page 226)--a defense of Phillis Wheatley's education and poetic skills--as well as a very early appearance of Wheatley's own poem On Recollection (page 456). The present is the only copy of The Gentleman's Magazine on the market to contain both pieces. Kidnapped from Gambia and brought to slavery in the American colonies, Phillis Wheatley rose to prominence as a poet. Purchased by the Wheatley family at the age of 7, she quickly stood out for her apt and creative mind; "soon she was immersed in the Bible, astronomy, geography, history, British literature, and the Greek and Latin classics," being educated in a similar manner to the family's two children (Poetry Foundation). This classical humanistic education prepared Wheatley for authorship, and she began writing a collection of poetry and sought subscribers for their publication.

MASON, Charlotte.
IV, [16], 422, 26, [19], [1 blank] pp.Tenth edition of Charlotte Mason's famous housekeeping book on cookery, supplying the table and managing the gardens around the house, first published in 1773. Although called the ninth edition on the title-page, Cagle calls it the tenth (the ESTC gives 8 entries to ca. 1800 and other sources add an 1801 edition). Charlotte Mason was a professed housekeeper. Her preface says she wrote this book because there were, next to all the cookery books, fewer books that prescribe how to regulate all these dishes on the table.The book opens with bills of fare, listing several dishes for one or more courses for (family) dinners, including a schematic view on how to supply the table. She made these bills of fare for up to fifteen dishes. A large section follows, comprising recipes, including some for soups, stews, sauces for fish, poultry and meat, a wide variety of pickled vegetables, pies, puddings, custards, cakes and other sweets. She also gives much attention to different kind of fruits and mushrooms and how to preserve and dry them, and she gives an extensive description of several spices (ginger, turmeric, nutmeg, etc.) and other ingredients (pasta, oil, sugar, truffles, peppers). Some recipes are extensive, listing every step one has to take, while others are only two-line remarks about a dish. In this section she also discusses cooking techniques, such as how to pickle or stew certain kinds of meat, and the brewing and making of several kinds of drinks, for example brandies, lemonades and wines.After this, Mason lists the food in season fo … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOUTTUYN, Martinus and Jan Christiaan SEPP.
[20], C, LVIII [= LIV], [1 folding]; [8] pp.Rare complete copy, including the supplement, of the first and only edition of a splendid series of hand-coloured engravings of 885 wood samples from trees and shrubs from all over the world. It was by far the most extensive display of wood samples published to that date, and can hardly be equalled by modern publications. Included are woods used for house and ship building, furniture making, tools and equipment and for the production of dyes and medicines. The work was published in instalments from 1773 onwards. The 1773 title-pages, introduction, tables of tree and shrub names and indexes are in Dutch, German, English, French and Latin, while the title-page and new introduction added in 1791 are in Dutch, and the Dutch index includes extensive notes on the origins, properties and uses of the various wood sorts. The supplement omits Latin names and again adds notes in Dutch. The first 48 plates show samples of woods in the Dresden collection of Friedrich Augustus, King of Poland and Elector of Saxony, which had been published previously by Johann Michael Seligmann in Nürnberg. The rest were new to this edition: 41 plates showing woods (especially West Indian) from the collection of Hazeu, a minister of the church at Rotterdam, 11 showing some from Houttuyn's own collection, and the 6 in the supplement showing 42 from the collection of the Amsterdam apothecary H. De Troch. In fine condition and with generous margins, with only an occasional minor spot or smudge.

KEATE, GEORGE.
[4], 282; [4], 274, [6] pp.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. Some faint browning along the extremities and a couple occasional spots. A good copy.l Brunet III, col. 647; Cox II, p. 303; Hill 160.

With their History, Characters, Manners, and Places of Abode'. A printed note to the verso of title reads 'Ladies who may chuse to paint these insects themselves may have sets of the cuts on Royal Paper printed pale for that purpose'. This work was also published under the title 'Insects in their Natural Size and as they appear before the Microscope'.Illustrated with charming, vivid hand coloured engraved plates of greatly enlarged microscopic insects, some of which appear rather inaccurate. Hagen states, 'Fabricius nennt die Abbildungen ‘fictitiae’ wohl mit Unrecht, da durch künstliche Beleuchtung nicht achromatischer Gläser offenbar Hill die Sachen so sah, wie er sie abbildet.' [Fabricius called the illustrations 'fictitiae' probably unfairly, because with artificial lighting without achromatic lenses apparantly Hill saw things as he depicted them].Hagen I, p. 366; Nissen ZBI, 1938.

Millar, John
London: W. and J. Richardson for John Murray 1773 Second edition, enlarged, of an important sociological and anthropological study by John Millar (1735-1801), Professor of Law at the University of Glasgow and friend of Hume, Adam Smith and other members of the Scottish enlightenment. The first edition, in quarto format, appeeared two years earlier.. Contemporary polished calf. Gilt-ruled spine with red morocco label. Octavo. One inch split along front joint near head of spine. Offsetting to first and last couple of leaves from binding. Overall a very good, clean copy. The present work "contains a number of ingenious, progressive and penetrating ideas. It begins with the history of the station of women. Millar was by no means a primitivist, but he points out the equal and qualified station of women in primitive societies, thus making him a precursor of Bachofen. The advancement of civilization or the progress of labour and wealth, had formerly served to reduce the station of women, but since feudal times the progress of commerce had served to raise women once again; now, he notes, women seem sometimes to have become degenerate, thanks to wealth. He finds the same trend in the station of children. Millar supported the abolition of slavery and servile labour, which commercial society could now afford to eliminate, and showed a special interest in the improvement of working conditions for the salters and colliers in Scotland. He supported American independence and the liberty of France…He was not so much a democrat as an apostle of the liberation of the oppressed" (Hideo Ta … [Click Below for Full Description]

Genève, L.A. Caille Imprimeur-Libraire, au bas du Collège, 1773. in-8°, 303 p., reliure en basane originale, dos orné, coiffe supérieure légèrement touchée. Tranches rouges. Ex Libris Alain Bourneton 'Ad Majoram Pyrenae', Première édition d'un ouvrage important et rare. L'ouvrage du genevois Bordier est traduit en plusieurs langues. Il est le premier à énoncer la théorie de la plasticité du mouvement des glaciers. En outre ce livre renferme un des tous premiers itinéraires descriptifs de la vallée de Chamonix. L'ouvrage donne également beaucoup de renseignements sur le Lac Léman et ses environs, sur le chemin vers les salines du district d'Aigle, des salines en général, de St-Maurice, etc. Son itinéraire est le suivant: Genève, Evian, Martigny, Passage de la Tête Noire, Chamonix, Genève. "Cet ouvrage contient deux chapitres remarquables où la théorie des glaciers est envisagée sur la base d'hypothèses nouvelles, très en avance sur leur temps . ... Bordier est le premier à expliquer le mouvement des glaciers par la poussée gravitaire des glaces supérieures, phénomène qui jusque-là était purement et simplement nié". (Perret) En 1775 furent publiées deux différentes traductions allemandes, l'une à Nuremberg par J.G. Lederer, l'autre à Gotha par Heinrich A.O. Reichard. Ce dernier attribue abusivement ce «Voyage» au savant Marc-Théodor Bourrit, qui publia également en 1773 l'ouvrage intitulé «Description des glacières, glaciers et amas de glace du Duché de Savoye». Reichard a dû confondre les deux publications. De Beer, traduisant en anglais une citation de cet ouvrage "Ice not … [Click Below for Full Description]

The present is the only copy of The Gentleman's Magazine on the market to contain both pieces. Kidnapped from Gambia and brought to slavery in the American colonies, Phillis Wheatley rose to prominence as a poet. Purchased by the Wheatley family at the age of 7, she quickly stood out for her apt and creative mind; "soon she was immersed in the Bible, astronomy, geography, history, British literature, and the Greek and Latin classics," being educated in a similar manner to the family's two children (Poetry Foundation). This classical humanistic education prepared Wheatley for authorship, and she began writing a collection of poetry and sought subscribers for their publication.

TREW, Christoph Jakob (1695-1769) and Benedict Christian VOGEL (1745-1825)
[Nuremberg], 1773. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. 10 parts in one volume, folio (518 x 353 mm). 3 mezzotint portraits of Trew, G. D. Ehret and J. J. Haid, one engraved general title, heightened in red and gold, 100 hand-colored engraved plates by Johann Jacob Haid and Johann Elias Haid after Georg Dionysius Ehret, each with the first word of the caption heightened in gold. Contemporary half calf, spine gilt. Rebacked, with the old spine laid down, corners repaired; some very minor occasional spotting. Provenance: purchased from August Laube, 1967. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE GREATEST EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY BOTANICAL COLOR-PLATE BOOKS.Trew and Ehret's celebrated collaboration, magnificently colored by hand. Nissen considered the Plantae selectae to be the finest botanical work ever printed in Germany. Trew, physician at Nuremberg and amateur botanist, admired the talent and skill of his younger countryman, Georg Ehret, a gardener and flower painter. This work is their major collaboration, although Ehret did contribute several drawings to Trew's Hortus nitidissimus. Ehret is one of the great painters of flowering plants in the eighteenth century, and all 100 plates of the Plantae selectae were painted by him. Trew died in 1769, leaving the last three parts uncompleted. The work was finished by Benedict Christian Vogel, Professor of Botany at the University of Altdorf.The work was conceived as early as 1742 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 h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Miguel de Cervantes's 'Don Quixote' is one of the most famous works of literature and is one of the most popular adventure tales to be written. This 1773 printing features François Filleau de Saint-Martin's French translation and is iconic for its full-page engravings depicting scenes from the famous story. Saint-Martin's edition was first published in 1678 who modified the original ending by making Don Quixote live at the end!

Première édition française de 'Distinction of Ranks in Society' (1771), dans la traduction de J.-B. Suard, le principal ouvrage de John Millar, qui ne sera réédité qu'une seule fois en français (en 1778). Une partie du tirage de la même édition porte le titre de 'Observations sur la distinction des rangs de la société'. Membre de l'école écossaise, élève puis protégé d’Adam Smith, Millar devint avocat et son enseignement à Glasgow remporta un succès considérable. L’ouvrage, qui défend la thèse que les lois fondamentales qui régissent les sociétés reposent sur des facteurs économiques et non politiques, est considéré de ce fait comme l’un des textes précurseurs du matérialisme historique prémarxiste. D'importantes pages plaident pour l'égalité entre les femmes et les hommes, l'abolition de l'esclavage, ou la nécessité d'améliorer les conditions de travail des plus défavorisés. Millar se prononce également en faveur de l'indépendance américaine et de la démocratisation du système politique français. Selon Jean Mondot ('Diderot-Raynal et les Lumières écossaises', In "Lumières", 2004, n°3, p. 57), "ce livre constitue la référence principale d'après laquelle Diderot-Raynal composeront leur histoire de l'esclavage".

Staehlin, Jacob von
Academy of sciences, France, 1773. Original copper engraving. Map of Northwest America and the Russian Far East, including Bering Strait, showing exploration routes from Bering, Chirikov, and other Russian explorers. The map depicts from eastern Nowaja Semlja to Hudson Bay and from the Arctic Ocean to California and Honshu, Japan. One of the most important individual results of the expedition was the mapping and representation of the northeastern part of Asia. In 1754, the Department of Geography of the Saint Petersburg Academy of Sciences published a map entitled Nouvelle Carte des Découvertes faites par des Vaisseaux Russiens, which also recorded the shipping routes Vitus Berings and Alexei Ilyich Tschirikows. The newly acquired geographic information was very well received across Europe and spread quickly. In excellent condition. 465 by 640mm (18¼ by 25¼ inches).

Poetry. Anthology.) THE BEAUTIES OF THE POETS.
Printed by William Pine, 1773. complete with half-title, pp. xxiv, 312, 12mo, contemporary half calf, gilt ruled compartments on spine, 'POETS' within an octagonal frame, a bit worn at extremities, upper joint cracked, cords holding. A very rare anthology, religious, as per the title, ranging from Milton to the present (Goldsmith, The Deserted Village, first published 1770). Oxford (Regent's Park), Rylands, and Johns Hopkins only in ESTC. 'William Pine holds an important place in the history of Bristol printing because of the excellent quality of his work. He was the printer of the Bristol Gazette from 1767, and in 1774 he produced a Bible in pearl type, then the smallest size made. He also printed the first published history of Bristol, William Barrett's History and Antiquities of the City of Bristol, 1789, a handsome quarto of over seven hundred pages with many folding plates.' (Woolrich, Printing in Bristol). Pine was a type-founder as well as a printer, and The Business of News in England, 1760–1820, lists among his sidelines, bookbinding. He is not listed as such by Ramsden; no doubt there was a bindery attached to his shop. (ESTC T189227)
