        AN INTERESTING APPENDIX TO SIR WILLIAM BLACKSTONE'S COMMENTARIES ON THE LAWS OF ENGLAND.

      America [i.e. Philadelphia]: Printed for the Subscribers, by Robert Bell, 1773. - [4],119,[1],xii,155,[1]pp. Contemporary calf, raised bands, gilt morocco label, number "5" stamped on spine. A bit rubbed, three old stains on the front board. Front board lightly warper at foreedge. Lightly tanned, a few light fox marks. A very good copy. This copy bears a 1774 ownership inscription on the titlepage of Thomas Lewis (1718-90), a prominent Virginia planter and Justice of the Peace who was also a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses. The Lewis family of Virginia was very prominent in colonial and Revolutionary- era politics and military affairs, and one of Thomas' brothers, Andrew, served under George Washington in the French and Indian War, fought Indians on the frontier in the 1760s and 1770s, and was a brigadier general in the Continental Army. Another of Thomas' brothers, Charles, was killed serving under Andrew Lewis at the Battle of Point Pleasant in 1774. This copy also bears the ownership inscription on the titlepage of Charles Lewis (1772-1832), the son of Thomas Lewis. The front pastedown bears the bookplate of Jacob Mohler, and a note in Mohler's hand records that he bought this copy at the sale of Charles Lewis' library on April 10, 1832. The second printing by Robert Bell of this important and influential commentary on Blackstone, published the year after the first edition. Bell first printed these collected works as the fifth volume to the first American edition of Blackstone's COMMENTARIES., published in 1772. He changed the title for this third printing, issued in 1773 as THE PALLADIUM OF CONSCIENCE., perhaps to boost sagging sales numbers. Blackstone's work is considered the definitive pre-Revolutionary source on the Common Law, doing much to define conceptions of personal rights and the relationship between the English citizen and his government. The works collected herein include rejoinders to Blackstone by Joseph Priestley and Philip Furneaux, with Blackstone's responses. They specifically address Blackstone's writings on religious liberty and toleration, and the rights of nonconformists. The philosophical issues addressed in these essays, especially the concepts of personal rights and the obligations of a subject to authority, were obviously of great importance to American colonists in the years just before the outbreak of the Revolution. Thomas Jefferson, for example, had a copy of the present Bell printing of these commentaries. This is underscored by Bell's reference to "petty tyrants" in the title, and his proud designation of "America" as the place of publication. All three printings of this work are bibliographically complex, with leaves printed variously in octavo and quarto formats. A scarce and important consideration of personal liberties, published on the eve of the Revolution. EVANS 12684. NAIP w012870. COHEN 5369. HILDEBURN 2859.

        Description méthodique d'une collection de minéraux, du cabinet de M.D.R.D.L. Ouvrage où l'on donne de nouvelles idées sur la formation & la décomposition des mines, avec un court exposé des sentimens des minéralogistes les plus connus, sur la nature de chaque espèce.

      - Paris, Didot jeune and Knapen, 1773. 8vo (194 x 123 mm). pp. (xxxii), 299, (5), with engraved frontispiece; a fine, crisp copy in contemporary French mottled sheep, head and tail of spine slightly worn. First edition of this catalogue of the minerals in Romé de Lisle's own mineral cabinet. Romé 'earned money by cataloguing at least fourteen mineral collections, according to his own, probably incomplete, list in the bibliography to his Cristallographie of 1783. Three of the catalogues remained in manuscript. In 1773 he brought out a description of the metallic ores of his own mineral cabinet, in which he discussed the origin, metamorphosis, and paragenesis of each' (DSB).The descriptions are highly detailed, in terms of locale, mineral and crystal structure, composition, etc. The minerals are cross-referenced to Romé's 'Essai de cristallographie' (1772), the work in which he had established that crystallography was the basis of mineralogical classification. This was amplified in his epochal 'Cristallographie' in 1783, in which he established the general form of the law of constancy of interfacial angles and that each species of mineral has his characteristic primitive form and each form its characteristic constant angles. Pp. xx-xv contain a bibliography of works cited.Hoover 690; Ward and Carozzi 1908 [Attributes: First Edition]

Son auteur commence ainsi : « Les Gouvernemens et Lieutenances générales sont donnés aux Princes du Sang, à la haute Noblesse, aux Maréchaux de France et autres officiers généraux auxquels la naissance, l’éduction, et l’expérience ont rendu familiers les principes des gouvernements et l’art de commander. C’est à eux que s’adressent directement les ordres du Roi, surtout en ce qui a trait à l’administration militaire. Ils les exécutent en les faisant exécuter à ceux que ces ordres concernent come Gouverneurs et Commandans des Places. Ceux-ci sont toujours d’anciens officiers, qui par leur service ont mérité la confiance du Souverain. Les uns et les autres contribuent, selon l’étendue de leurs pouvoirs, à la tranquillité publique, en faisant régner le bon ordre en dedans et en nous défendant des attaques du dehors. De là naît cette heureuse harmonie au moyen de laquelle la bonté et la Sagesse du Roi, Père de son Peuple, influence jusqu’au dernier de ses sujets. » Cette introduction est suivie d’une table : l’auteur donne d’abord les Maisons Royales, puis Paris (Ville, Prévôté et Vicomté), Isle de France, Picardie, Artois, Champagne et Brie, Boulonnois, Duché de Bourgogne, Souveraineté de Dombes, Dauphiné, Provence, Principauté de Monaco, Languedoc, Foix, Comté de Roussillon, Navarre & Béarn, Guyenne & Gascogne, Sainlonge, Angoumois, La Rochelle, Poitou, Bretagne, Normandie, Le Havre de Grâce, Le Maine, Orléannois, Nivernois, Bourbonnois, Lyonnois, Auvergne, Limousin, Haute et Basse Marche, Haut et Bas Berry, Touraine, Anjou, Saumur, Flandres Françoise, Metz, Verdun, Principauté de Sedan, Lorraine, gouvernement à la disposition du feu Roi de Pologne, Toul, Alsace, Franche-Comté, Colonies, Isle de Corse. Pour chacune de ces places, il détaille les villes et les établissements, nomme les gouverneurs et les hauts gradés, et donne le nombre d’officiers, les émoluments et les appointements. Pour la Corse, annexée à la France cinq ans auparavant, l’auteur indique : « M. le Marquis de Monteynard, Ministre et Secrétaire d’Etat au Département de la Guerre, Gouverneur général. M. le Comte de Marbeuf, Lieutenant Général. Cette île a été érigée en gouvernement Général et militaire par le Roy Louïs XV, les Etats de Corse assemblés ayant demandés cette grâce à sa Majesté par leur Délibération du 6 May 1772. » Provenance : Mortimer L.

        A Voyage from England to India in the year MDCCLIV

      London: Edward and Charles Dilly, , 1773. And an historical narrative of the Operations of the Squadron and Army in India, under the Command of Vice-Admiral Watson and Colonel Clive, in the Years 1755, 1756, 1757; including a Correspondence between the Admiral and the Nabob Serajah Dowlah. Interspersed with some interesting Passages relating to the Manners, Customs, &c. of several Nations in Indostan. Also a Journey from Persia to England, by an unusual Route. With an Appendix, containing an Account of the Diseases prevalent in Admiral Watson's Squadron: A Description of most of the Trees, Shrubs, and Plants, of India, with their real, or supposed, medicinal Virtues … Quarto (263 × 193 mm) Later half calf, marbled boards, morocco label to spine. Folding map frontispiece and one other folding map, 13 plates, one of them folding - "The Hookah." A little rubbed, light browning throughout, occasional staining, frontispiece map torn, no loss, old repair, title page and least few leaves slightly soiled, overall a very good copy. First edition. "From 1753 to 1757 Ives was surgeon of the Kent, bearing the flag of Vice-Admiral Charles Watson as commander-in-chief in the East Indies. The squadron sailed via the Cape of Good Hope and Madagascar to India, where they visited the chief English settlements and major cities, Ives attending the company hospitals and staff in each place. On the admiral's death in August 1757, his own health being somewhat impaired, he resigned his appointment, and travelled home overland from Basrah, through Baghdad, Mosul, and Aleppo, thence by Cyprus, to Leghorn and Venice, and so home through Germany and the Netherlands, arriving in England in March 1759 … In 1773 he published A Voyage from England to India, which described his journey to India, his experiences there, and his overland route home. Ives's presence at many of the events which he describes and his close relationship with Vice-Admiral Watson give his historical narrative an unusual importance, and his accounts of the manners and customs of the inhabitants, of the diseases and medical practices, of the natural history, and of the products of the countries he visited, some then little known to Europeans, are those of an acute and, for his time, relatively enlightened observer."

        Medals of the Sovereigns of England]

      : , 1773. - Engravings of Dassier’s Medals of the Sovereigns of England[NUMISMATICS]. [DASSIER, Jean]. [An Explanation of Dassier’s Medals of the Sovereigns of England]. [N.p.: n.d., ca. 1797].Blank book with mounted engravings of thirty-three medals, including thirty-one medals by Jean Dassier of the Sovereigns of England from William I to George II, including Oliver Cromwell (without the medals of the medals for Richard III, Henry VII, and Henry VIII), as well as medals of George III (by Lewis Pingo) and Queen Charlotte (by John Kirk). Twelvemo (6 3/8 x 3 3/4 inches; 162 x 95 mm.). [33] leaves, each with two mounted engravings showing the recto and verso of a medal. Each leaf separated by a guard leaf.Bound in late eighteenth-century full red roan. Covers with gilt single fillet border, smooth spine ruled in gilt, board edges and turn-ins decoratively tooled in gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Spine, corners, and board edges rubbed. A few areas of slight discoloration on covers. Pencilled annotations on verso of one leaf. An excellent copy.The engravings are most likely cut from An Explanation of Dassier’s Medals of the Sovereigns of England, a series of six engraved plates of the Kings and Queens of England, by Pye, c. 1773, the final plate with additional medals of George III and Queen Charlotte, followed by 7 pp. of explanatory text, reduced landscape folio. "The additional medals chosen are interesting, the first the undated medal of George III, by Lewis Pingo. Eimer [Pingo, 54], dates the medal to c. 1775, when the medal was exhibited at the Free Society of Artists. Stainton (private notes) believed it to have been used by the Welch Society. However it is catalogued by Brown [BHM 265], following Col. Grant’s lead, as "American Independence", and placed ten years later in 1785. The second medal is John Kirk’s medal of Queen Charlotte, for the founding of the Medical Society of London in 1773 [BHM 184]. It would seem logical to date the book to 1773-1776" (Coin Archive).A complete listing of the engravings is available upon request.Swiss medallist Jean (John) Dassier (1676-1763) "trained under his father Domaine Dassier (1641–1719), chief engraver at the Geneva Mint, and studied in Paris under Jean Mauger and Joseph Roettier. From 1711 he was assistant engraver at the Geneva Mint and in 1720 succeeded his father as chief engraver, a post he held until his death. Around 1720 he designed and executed his first series of medals: those of French monarchs (72 medals) and religious reformers (around 24). In 1728 he visited England, where he refused the offer of a position at the Royal Mint. In 1731 he issued a series of medals dedicated to George II, depicting British sovereigns from William I to George II. This consisted of 35 medals available in gold, silver and bronze, some of which were damascened. He was joined in this project by his second son, and the medals are described in his A Sett of Medals of all the Kings of England (London, 1731) and An Explanation of the Medals of the English Monarchs Engraved by John Dassier and Son (Birmingham, 1731)" (Grove Art Online)."Having being presented to Queen Caroline, perhaps through the good offices of Wake, Dassier set out proposals for a set of thirty-three medals of English sovereigns from William I to George II, to whom the series was dedicated. Based on engravings by George Vertue for Paul Rapin de Thoyras’s History of England, these were advertised in the prospectus published in 1730 for purchase by subscription at 6 guineas for sets in copper and at 15 guineas for silver. During his second stay in England Dassier also planned, according to Vertue, to engrave many remarkable persons noted for great Actions in the government of this nation in Times passd. and learned men of all degrees lately or formerly or of the present time which he proposes to grave at his own expence. (Vertue, Note books, 3.51–2). Medals of Milton, Bacon, and Selden were included in this set. Together these t

Deux des gravures de J. M. MOREAU sont célèbres car elles représentent la triste condition des esclaves. Envoyé en 1766 à l'île de France comme capitaine-ingénieur, Bernardin de Saint-Pierre (1737-1814) se laissa entraîner par sa passion des aventures et partit avec d'autant moins d'hésitation, qu'on semblait l'autoriser à tenter l'application de ses idées de colonisation à Madagascar. Il y séjourna durant trois années et contribua à apporter de précieux renseignements pour la connaissance et le développement de l'Île de France, aujourd'hui île Maurice.

      - Amsterdam, Jan Christiaan Sepp, 1773-(1791). 4to (285 x 218mm). With 100 fine handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gilt spine in 6 compartments with red gilt lettered label. The most beautifully produced work on wood ever published, showing some 800 wood specimens on 100 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. The work was originally intended to be a translation of Seligmann's 'Abbildung in- und ausländischer Hölzer' published in Nürnberg from 1773-1748 with 48 plates, but became an independant work. "Sepp added some 42 plates which show especially timbers from the West Indies, drawn from the Cabinet of Reverend Hazeu at Rotterdam. Eighty samples were taken from the collection of Martinus Houttuyn" (Landwehr 84). The text of the work is in Dutch, German, English, French and Latin. The famous publishing house Sepp & Zoon, was a firm which excercised the utmost care in producing colour-plate books of outstanding quality. In the present case Sepp was the author as well as the publisher. The work is an important source of information about the knowledge and use of wood in the 18th century. As the work was published in parts over a longer period of time copies with 100 plates are very rare. In 1795 Houttuyn brought out a supplement with 6 more plates which is present in only a few copies. The work is beautifully produced and the colouring of the plates is excellent.

The expedition of the Racehorse and Carcass, undertaken for the purpose of discovering a route to India through the northern polar regions, was blocked by pack ice of Spitsbergen. The valuable appendix gives geographical and meteorological observations, zoological and botanical records, accounts of the distillation of fresh water from the sea, and astronomical observations. The voyage is perhaps best remembered for the presence of young Horatio Nelson, as midshipsman aboard the Carcass, and his encounter with a polar bear' (Hill 1351). Phipps's narrative of his voyage was of considerable scientific interest and was the beginning of modern efforts to reach the North Pole. It also made an important addition to the knowledge of the natural productions of Spitsbergen. - The first British attempt to reach the North Pole since 1615. - A fine copy.Sabin 62572; JCB 1966; Chavanne 1944 (other ed.); Cox II, p.19; Stam, Books on ice, p.13.

        Eléments de la politique, ou Recherche des vrais principes de l'économie sociale.

      A Londres 1773 - Livre ancien collationné complet. Dans cet ouvrage, imprimé sans nom d'auteur, avec la mention fictive « A Londres », Dubuat-Nançay aborde l'épineux problème de la réforme des institutions, des devoirs et droits de la noblesse par rapport aux autres ordres. Proposant une réforme territoriale, l'auteur s'intéresse à la nécessaire éducation des citoyens et prône d'emblée dans son livre I la reconnaissance de l'égalité « des hommes entre eux, soient qu'ils ayent une origine commune, soit qu'ils ne l'ayent point ». L'audace d'un tel propos justifiait à l'évidence l'usage de l'anonymat. Dubuat-Nançay est l'auteur d'un ouvrage critique de l'administration des finances de la France de M. Necker.

        The Present state of music in Germany, the Netherlands, and United Provinces. Or, the journal of a tour through those countries, undertaken to collect materials for a general history of music.

      T. Becket and Co., J. Robson, G. Robinson, London 1773 - 8vo. 2 volumes. Volume I. pp. viii, 376. Volume II. pp. vi, [2], 352. (p. vi in volume 2 should probably be numbered iv). "Advertisement" and errata leaves are bound after the title page in volume 2. Library stamp on upper portion of the title page in each volume (and a number stamped lightly on verso). Bound in modern half-calf with marbled boards. Interior is generally clean; pages are mildly age toned with an occasional touch of light foxing; a couple of faint corner creases present; a small marginal tear on p. 157 of volume 2 is neatly sealed. Some spots of light staining present on outer edge of text block. Charles Burney (1726-1814) was an English musician and composer. In 1773 he was elected a member of the Royal Society. According to Andrew Deakin’s Musical Bibliography "The tour of which this book is the fruit was commenced in July, 1772. Dr. Burney visited Brussels, Antwerp, Frankfort, Munich, Vienna, Prague, Dresden, Leipzig, Berlin, and many other cities, forming friendships with the Bach family, J.A. Hiller, and other masters, who furnished him with numberless details about the early and later state of music." [Deakin, Musical Bibliography, p.47; ESTC T104544].

        Manuel des Marins, ou Explication des Termes de Marine.

      Lorient: By Julien le Jeune Fils, for the benefit of science, and to be found at bookshops in various seaports, 1773 - 2 volumes, octavo (200 × 124 mm). Contemporary mottled sheep trade binding, title gilt direct to spine, floral and arabesque devices in compartments formed by a foliate roll between rules, edges marbled. Light browning, binding worn at the corners, head- and tail-caps chipped, but remains very good and attractive. Headpieces. First edition. Born in St. Malo in 1732, Bourdé spent his entire career in the employ of the Compagnie des Indes based at Lorient. His reputation was made by the publication in 1765 of Le Manoeuvrier, which he had submitted for the approbation of the Academie des Sciences. An English translation was published in 1788 and Bourdé joined Hoste and Bigot de Morogues as French naval theoreticians who became highly influential on both sides of the channel. In the present work he attempts the definition of terms currently in use at sea, on the basis of the principle that from words "we are led to an understanding of all the rest." Authors of other marine dictionaries lack experience at sea, and simply cannot define that which they do not understand without error, mistaking one thing for another, and stuffing their works with false explanations. He will attempt to write as simply, but as precisely as possible, in the "langage ordinaire des Marins," making his dictionary useful not just to seamen, but also to merchants, politicians, and "on qui fréquentent les Ports du Royaume." Uncommon, COPAC shows just two copies of the 1799 revised edition in Britain, nine copies on OCLC, eight of them in the USA. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Lo spirito delle leggi del signore di Montesquieu. Tomo primo [-quarto].

      si vende appresso i principali libraj d'Italia [Graziosi],, Amsterdam [ma Venezia], 1773 - 4 volumi in-12° (cm. 16), gradevolissime legature in m. pelle maculata (lievissime abrasioni) con titolo e filetti in oro ai dorsi, piatti marmorizzati, tagli gialli; carte in buono stato, ogni frontespizio con vignetta xilografica differente (antica integrazione al margine superiore del primo senza alcun fastidio). Prima traduzione italiana completa del capolavoro Esprit des lois, nonché «versione capostipite di tutte le ottocentesche» [S. Rotta. Montesquieu nel Settecento italiano, in Scritti scelti di Salvatore Rotta, Eliohs 2003]. Pur essendo il traduttore ancora non identificato (forse Ottaviano Guasco?) «il volgarizzamento è fatto da mano maestra» [Gazzetta letteraria, Milano, Galeazzi, 1773, p. 219] e «il traduttore è soggetto molto opportuno a simili imprese» [L'Europa Letteraria t. I, p. II, febbraio 1773]. Questa traduzione, che seguiva la sola incompiuta di Mecatti del 1750 [cfr. Einaudi 3996], fu rimaneggiata dal Terres e da lui arricchita dei commenti del Genovesi (1777), tanto da essere poi riprodotta con mere varianti ortografiche e di punteggiatura nelle edizioni milanesi del 1819 e 1838, in quella napoletana del 1819 e in quella veneta del 1821. Cfr. E. De Mas. Montesquieu, Genovesi e le edizioni italiane dello Spirito delle leggi, Firenze 1971, pp. 15-17, 50. Rara edizione. Esemplare molto buono.
