        OEUVRES DE M. FRANKLIN...TRADUITES DE L'ANGLOIS SUR LA QUATRIEME ÉDITION...AVEC DES ADDITIONS NOUVELLES...

      Paris, 1773. Two volumes bound in one. 338,318,[2]pp., plus twelve plates and frontispiece portrait. Quarto. Half titles. Contemporary mottled calf, ornate gilt-tooled spine, gilt morocco label, edges painted red. Spine somewhat chipped, hinges rubbed, moderate edge and corner wear. Remnants of bookplate on front pastedown. Some foxing and tanning. Good plus. The first French edition of Franklin's complete works on electricity, based on the fourth and best British edition, combined with the first French editions of a number of other works of Franklin's, including some published for the first time in book form in the present volume. An earlier edition of the electricity section, with about half the material, was published in 1752; the present first section includes all the material in the comprehensive fourth edition in English, published in London in 1769. The first volume is devoted entirely to electricity, with the addition of several pieces not included in any previous editions. The second volume contains other scientific writings, including works on meteors, his improvements on chimneys (the "Franklin stove"), sections on population increase, inoculation, music, the "magic circles", and other topics. This edition was translated by Jacques Barbeu Dubourg, a leading philosopher and one of Franklin's closest friends in France. This copy contains the portrait of Franklin not found in all copies. Scarce, and important for its various contents. FORD 315.

In questo libro, i termini sono elencati in ordine alfabetico. L'autore sottolinea tuttavia nella sua prefazione che il suo libro non è quello di guardare come un dizionario, ma come un utile enciclopedia navale non solo a "uomo di mare", ma anche per i commercianti e la politica marittima. Jacques-Pierre bourde di Villehuet (1732-1789) proveniva da una famiglia di marinai ed è stato al servizio della Compagnia delle Indie Orientali. Egli è l'autore di molti libri sulla navigazione.

Entscheidend für Kanne waren religiöse Erlebnisse, die er als Erweckung verstand, danach (ab 1814) veröffentlichte er fast nur noch Erbauungsschrifttum u. christliche Biographien.

        LA POLITIQUE NATURELLE. Ou discours sur les vrais principes du gouvernement. Par un ancien magistrat.

      Marc-Michel Rey, Londres (i.e. Amsterdam) 1773 - Two volumes, octavo. pp (viii), 232; [4], 280. Half-titles present, binder's blanks front and rear. Bound in contemporary tortoiseshell calf, gilt decorative borders to spines, spines with raised bands, labels, gilt ornaments, gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, bound-in ribbon bookmark (perished in vol. I). Small chips to foot of spine of vol. I; covers just a little bowed; yellowing to a few leaves in text; "Baron Holbach" very lightly in ink to half-title leaf in vol. II ; else fine, tight in the bindings, hinges not cracked, text clean and fresh. Variant (first printing?) with a period (vs comma) after "Naturelle" on title page, and with the signature marks at bottom centre of pages, and collating a little differently from the other recorded variant. Vercruysse (1773) A2 and A3 describes two variants, listing this one first, but not giving any reason for that order. Tchemerzine VI, 245b. One of several works in which Holbach, the outspoken and influential atheist of the Englightenment, argues for principles of government based solely on social utility and the common good. He advocated the abolition of class privileges, progressive taxation, separation of church and state, religious toleration, secular public education, freedom of the press, and freedom of speech - familiar principles in western democracies today.

First edition. 2 volumes. frontispiece and 63 engraved plates, portrait just trimmed as often. [THIRD VOYAGE] -- COOK, Capt. James; James King. A Voyage to the Pacific Ocean. Undertaken, by the command of His Majesty, for making Discoveries in the Northern Hemisphere. To determine The Position and Extent of the West Side of North America; its Distance from Asia; and the Practicability of a Northern Passage to Europe. London: G. Nicol, 1784.

Together. 9 volumes, comprising 8 volumes 4to, and 1 volume atlas folio (57.5 x 42.5 cm), minor spotting, offsetting and occasional stain, nothing untoward. Modern half calf gilt extra by Aquarius, an excellent set. A complete set of Captain Cook's great voyages. Complete with Death of Cook plate and Streight of Magellan chart. "Captain Cook's three great voyages form the basis of any collection of Pacific books. In three great voyages Cook did more to clarify the geographical knowledge of the southern hemisphere than all his predecessors together had done. He was the first really scientific navigator, and his voyages made great contributions to many fields of knowledge" (Hill). "As an explorer Cook stands equal to Vasco de Gama, Christopher Columbus and Magellan. Beside proving that the Southern Continent existed only within the Antarctic Circle and showing there was no practical sea route between the Pacific and the Atlantic in the Arctic, he completed with accuracy the outline map of the largest ocean and opened the way for trade and settlement. As a seaman and navigator he showed outstanding ability. As a man he was brave and determined, a leader that men could follow literally to the ends of the earth. But greatest among his qualities was his care and consideration for people, be they his men, whose health and conditions were always his close concern, or the natives that he met, whose culture and custom he was careful to respect" (Lord Lewin writing in Capt. James Cook Navigator, NMM, 1990). The first voyage under Cook's command on the Endeavour was primarily of a scientific nature, the mission being to observe the transit of Venus at Tahiti. Having carried out his duties, Cook sailed on to New Zealand which he circumnavigated and surveyed, before going on to Australia where he discovered and named New South Wales. Both Australia and New Zealand were annexed as a result of this voyage. On the second voyage Cook was sent by the Admiralty to ascertain whether a great Terra Australis really existed below the Antarctic Circle. He circumnavigated Antarctica at high latitudes and captained the first ship on record to cross the Antarctic Circle. Though discovering the South Sandwich Islands and South Georgia, he did not gain sight of a Southern Continent. "Cook was a brilliant navigator and hydrographer, an excellent administrator and planner, and probably the first sea captain to realize the importance of preserving the health and well-being of his crew On his second voyage, of 112 men on board the Resolution, which he commanded, Cook lost only one by disease - and that not scurvy - a unique achievement in his time." PMM. Cook's third and final voyage was an expedition in search of the Northwest Passage with a remarkable crew including William Bligh, George Vancouver, and James Burney.

        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, le Minéralisateur qui s'y rencontre, & la quantité de métal qu'elle produit

      Engraved allegorical frontis. by Augustin Saint-Aubin. xxxii, 299, [5] pp. 8vo, orig. wrappers, uncut. Paris: Didot & Knapen, 1773. First edition, and a lovely copy in original state, of an uncommon book; this is one of Romé's first publications. It is a description "of the metallic ores of his own mineral cabinet, in which he discussed the origin, metamorphosis, and paragenesis of each."-D.S.B., XI, p. 521. Earlier, he had catalogued the mineralogical curiosities in the cabinet of Pedro Francisco Davila and for several years found steady employment by preparing at least fourteen other mineralogical catalogues. In all the descriptions in the present work, Romé stresses the importance of crystalline form and that this form is the chief characteristic by which minerals may be classified. Romé (1736-90), by formulating the law of constancy of interfacial angles, established crystallography as the basis of mineralogy. The attractive frontispiece, drawn by Saint-Aubin, depicts two putti, one examining ores under a microscope and the other stoking a furnace. Preserved in a box. ? Yves Laissus, "Les Cabinets d'Histoire Naturelle" in René Taton, ed., Enseignement et diffusion des sciences en France au dix-huitième siècle, p. 669-"un véritable manuel de minéralogie." Schuh, Mineralogy & Crystallography: A Biobibliography, 1469 to 1920, 4154-"Very scarce. In this collection catalog, the famous French crystallographer fully describes about 750 metallic minerals from his own cabinet. Included are specimens consisting of pure metals as well as natural alloys and combinations with sulfur. Basic division is based upon the principle metals and semi-metals contained in the described specimens and include gold, silver, copper, iron, tin, lead, mercury, antimony, zinc, bismuth, cobalt, arsenic and sulfur. Under each of these headings, the specimens are divided based upon their form and chemical composition. For each item described, notes on the origin, associated minerals, locality, size and the estimated weight of contained precious metals is presented. The catalog is well referenced, and if a particular specimen was given to Romé, the supplier's name is included in the description.".

Grangé, [1773?]. An earlier owner attributes the ownership of this catalogue to Pierre François Gisbert de Schorel, seigneur de Wilryck (1716-73 or 1778) and mayor of Anvers, whose collection of paintings was sold the following year in Anvers by Grangé. Van Schorel was actively involved in the artistic life of Antwerp and in the early 1740s played an important role in the reorganization and financial support of the city's Academie voor Schoone Kunsten. He formed one of the largest gatherings of Rubens's oil sketches in the southern Netherlands in the eighteenth century. His splendid art collection featured twenty-eight paintings by Rubens.

        Bibliotheca Westiana: A Catalogue of the Curious and truly Valuable Library of the late James West, Esq; President of the Royal Society

      â€¦digested by Samuel Paterson. Which…will be sold by Auction, by Mess. Langford…on Monday, the 29th of March 1773, and the Twenty-three following Days… viii, 239 (i.e. 235) pp. 8vo, cont. French red morocco, triple gilt fillet round sides, flat spine richly gilt, a.e.g. [London]: 1773. The second of the auction catalogues prepared for the sale of the library of James West. This is a splendid copy bound in contemporary French red morocco and entirely ruled in red (including the title-page) with prices in a contemporary hand. This copy belonged to the famous book collector Michael Wodhull (1740-1816), who has characteristically recorded on the free front flyleaf the price, date and place of purchase as well as signed it. West (1704-73), treasurer of the Inner Temple and President of the Royal Society, formed a collection of printed books "exceedingly rich in early English ones. It contained no fewer than thirty-four Caxtons, and a large number of works from the presses of Lettou, Machlinia, the anonymous 'Scole mayster' of St. Albans, Wynkyn de Worde, Pynson, and the rest of the old English typographers, many of which were unique copies. His manuscripts were exceptionally interesting and valuable."-Fletcher, English Book Collectors, p. 205-(& see pp. 203-07). His library was also strong in scientific, historical, and philosophical works as well as books dealing with law and crime. West bought at all the great sales and dispersals in England for nearly fifty years, including those of Rawlinson, Harley, and Folkes. West also formed large collections of prints, drawings, paintings, medals and coins, and an important natural history cabinet. Upon his death, the collections were consigned to a general auctioneer, Messrs. Langford, who were a stone's-throw from West's house and experienced in selling anything and everything. Langford's prepared a catalogue of the library but suppressed it within a week due to its inferior and chaotic cataloguing and modest appearance. Samuel Paterson, the great auctioneer and cataloguer, was called in to produce a fresh catalogue, under the auspices of Messrs. Langford, intended to be more worthy of the library's fame. Paterson's catalogue - the present one - merged all the books. The number of lots was increased from 3796 to 4653 and the cataloguing was far superior (the compiler of the first catalogue disliked titles in German and had only a slight knowledge of the older books). The sale, with Paterson officiating, brought nearly 3000 pounds which was a very great event for the time. All the great English collectors of the period were buyers including Bindley, Wodhull, Dr. Askew, Dr. Hunter, George Mason, Thomas Crofts, and C.M. Cracherode. A very fine copy. ?
