        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 Author of a Chief over the members of a Tribe or Village. IV. Of the Power of a Sovereign over an extensive Society. Of the Authority of a Master over his Servants. The Second Edition, greatly enlarged.

      London: Printed for J. Murray. 1773 - 8vo, 211 x 127 mms., pp. [iv], xxii, 312, including half-title, contemporary calf; binding dried, piece of leather missing from lower front corner, joints very slightly cracked. John Millar (1735 - 1801), Professor of Civil Law at the University of Glasgow, is a good example of an author whose reputation flourished during his lifetime, and who thereafter virtually disappeared from the map of intellectual history. Observations concerning the Distinction of Ranks in Society was first published in an attractive quarto by John Murray in London in 1771; a Dublin edition was published in the same year by Thomas Ewing with Murray's consent and collaboration. A second edition, "greatly enlarged," followed in 1773, and for the third edition, "corrected and enlarged" of 1779, Millar revised the title to The Origin of the Distinction of Ranks: Or, An Enquiry into the Circumstances which Give Rise of Influence and Authority in the Different Members of Society. Commenting on the last section, the reviewer for The Monthly Review said, "The performance, indeed, deserves to be read in the Author's own words. The manner in which it is written is agreeable; and the style is in general correct, without stiffness or affectation. From the short analysis of it which we have given, the learned Reader will perceive that this is one of those works which only could be produced in an age superior to prejudices, and guided by the spirit of a free and liberal philosophy." Nothing like self-congratulation to warm the cockles of a reviewer's heart. W. Zachs, The First John Murray (1998) 70. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cours complet d'anatomie, peint et grave. Pt. I Myologie (all published).

      Nancy Chez Jean-Baptiste-Hyacinthe Leclerc 1773 - First edition. Large folio (64 x 49.5 cm). [iv], 25pp.,of explanatory text, 15 coloured plates, two showing male and female bodies, 13 showing muscles and body structure, each body part numbered, all printed in four colour mezzotint, 1 plate with tear into image repaired, a few plates with light creases, modern calf spine over original marbled boards, new free endleaves, light edge wear, an attractive copy. "These fifteen plates follow a scheme of progress, from the classical figures at the start, to skeletal hands and feet; or we can see it as a strip performance, from fully clad nudes by stages to muscle and bone. The delightful Apollo and Venus starting the theme were of course prepared in four mezzotint plates by Arnauld-Eloi, but painted by a Nancy artist, Jean Girardet, who died five years later. They are certainly stunning examples from neo-classical France, reproduced with sophisticated art by the Gautier Dagoty process" (Franklin, Early Colour Printing pp. 49-50). Garrison Morton describes Gautier's coloured mezzotints as striking. It had been intended that the complete work would consists of five parts but only Pt. 1 seems to have been published (Welcome catalogue). Gautier d'Agoty (c.1715 - 1785) was the assistant and successor to the master painter, engraver and pioneer of colour printing Jacques Christophe le Blon (1670 - 1741). Le Blon had experimented with a three-colour process for colour-printing - following Newton's ground-breaking studies into the formation of colour - but it was Gautier d'Agoty who elevated the art to a higher level with the addition of a fourth black plate which gave the resultant images their superb tonal contrast and artistic depth. After the death of Le Blon, Gautier d'Agoty's refinement of Le Blon's technique aroused controversy until in 1745 he was awarded the exclusive use of his own technique. Although Gautier d'Agoty's anatomical works have been criticised for their lack of anatomical verisimilitude - he was after all an artist - there can be no doubt that his productions, with their artistic composition, magnificent illuminating colour and haunting facial expressions are extraordinary examples of a visionary artist displaying his abilities to the utmost.

Hier ein bewegender Brief in wohl äußerster Geldnot.

Very Scarce. ÑHill 782; Beddie 648; Howgego I, C173; Sabin 30934. The main objective of the expedition was to observe the "Transit of Venus" at Tahiti and secondly to search for a Great Southern Continent. The expedition entered the Pacific around Cape Horn and sailed to Tahiti where the observations of the Venus were made, then the voyage continued to the Society Islands, and after that New Zealand was explored and also the eastern coast of Australia (New South Wales). As stated above, Cook was the first to confirm that New Zealand was, in fact, an island. Hawkesworth's account was an immediate success and aroused much interest in the Pacific throughout Europe. Captain Cook was promoted to the rank of Commander, and in the following year he set out in command of the Resolution heading once more to the Pacific. The first volume of Hawkesworth account covers the voyages by John Byron , Captain Wallis and Captain Carteret. Primary credit for the creation of this account is given to John Hawkesworth who had been commissioned by the Admiralty to edit Capt. Cook's papers. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A CONTINUATION OF THE NARRATIVE OF THE INDIAN CHARITY SCHOOL, BEGUN IN LEBANON, IN CONNECTICUT; NOW INCORPORATED WITH DARTMOUTH-COLLEGE, IN HANOVER, IN THE PROVINCE OF NEW-HAMPSHIRE

      New-Hampshire [i.e. Portsmouth], 1773. Gathered signatures, stitched. Institutional ink stamp on titlepage. Contemporary manuscript notes on titlepage (noting the scope of the work), and in a few instances in the text. A bit of foxing and tanning. Very good. Untrimmed. The sixth of eight pamphlets published by Wheelock between 1763 and 1775, documenting his history of the first Indian school in America. The series began with his A PLAIN AND FAITHFUL NARRATIVE OF THE ORIGINAL DESIGN... (Boston, 1763), which covered 1754 to 1762. The school, founded by Wheelock, opened in 1754 under the name of the Moors Charity School. In 1772 it was removed to Hanover "where it formed the germ of the institution, known as Dartmouth College" (Field). This tract describes the progress made at Dartmouth College from May 6, 1771 to September 10, 1772. Wheelock begins with an account of the first buildings to be erected: "I have now finished, (that is so far as to render comfortable and decent) the building there mentioned to accommodate my students, of 80, by 32 feet; and have done it in the plainest and cheapest manner, which furnishes 16 comfortable rooms besides a kitchen, hall and store- room." Other constructions included a saw-mill, a grist- mill, and two barns: "I have also raised, and expect within a few days to finish a malt house of 30 feet square, and several other lesser buildings which were found necessary; I have also clear'd, and in a good measure fitted for improvement about 70 or 80 acres of land, and seeded with English grain about 20 acres last fall; from which I have taken at the late harvest, what was esteemed a good crop considering the land was so lately laid open to the sun." At the end is an interesting appendix, dated September 26, 1772, in which Wheelock describes a visit made by one of his colleagues, Mr. Ripley, to a tribe of Indians at Lorett (or Loretto), near Quebec, to recruit new students for his school. Ripley's proposal to the tribal chiefs was deemed acceptable: "In consequence of which determination, nine of their boys were made ready to accompany Mr. Ripley hither; three of which were children or descendants from captives, who had been captivated when they were young, and lived with them 'till they were naturalized and married among them. One was a descendant from the Rev. Mr. Williams who was captivated from Deerfield in 1704, but the boy was taken sick with the measles, and thereby his coming was prevented; but may be expected in the spring. Another was a descendant from Mr. Tarbull, who was captivated from Groton, in the year 1700, who is now a hearty and active man, and the eldest chief, and chief speaker of the tribe. He expressed great affection to his relations in New-England, sent his love to them, and desired they might be informed he had a grandson at the school. The other was son to Mr. Stacey, who was captivated from Ipswich, and is a good interpreter to that tribe. They all arrived safe and in health on that day fortnight, after they sat [sic] out from Caghnewaga, and appeared to be very glad 'that they had got home,' as they expressed it." There are two issues of this pamphlet, from the same setting of type; in the other the titlepage is dated 1772. Daniel and Robert Fowle were the only printers active in Portsmouth in this period.

"Dittersdorf's symphonies span virtually his entire career, and his changing approach to the genre mirrors recognized patterns of evolution in 18th-century Viennese instrumental music. Apart from a group of early three-movement works, almost all are in four movements. While the earliest symphonies have small proportions, nervous energy and modest instrumentation, the later ones tend towards more extended structures, simpler themes, richer harmony and more elaborate orchestration."

        REGLEMENT CONCERNANT LES GENS DE COULEUR LIBRES. EXTRAIT DES REGISTRES DU CONSEIL SUPERIEUR DU PORT-AU-PRINCE

      Port-au-Prince: chez Guillot, 1773. Quarto. Single folded sheet. Old fold, short tear along vertical fold. Very good. A rare Haitian imprint that enumerates the rules on how mulattos, and other "gens de couleur libres" [free people of color] who were born free can take the last names of their fathers, and how freed slaves can take the names of the masters who gave them their freedom. In the complex slave society of colonial Saint Domingue, the illegitimate offspring of white masters and their slave mistresses were generally free, sometimes quite wealthy, but with circumscribed civil rights. Likewise freed slaves (for example, Touissant L'Overture) often had substantial property and slaves. Rare, with only one copy located, at the John Carter Brown Library. The origins of printing in Saint Domingue, now Haiti, are obscure. The best contemporary source, Isaiah Thomas in his HISTORY OF PRINTING IN AMERICA, says that a press was established at Port-au-Prince as early as 1750, but this is uncertain since the earliest imprints do not survive. In American libraries we can locate a 1767 Port- au-Prince imprint at the Library Company of Philadelphia, while the earliest held by the John Carter Brown Library (which has by far the most extensive collection of very early Saint Domingue imprints, with about three dozen prior to 1785) is 1769. Thomas says there was a press at Cap Français "as early as 1765, and probably several years preceding," but we locate a single imprint at the Library Company dated 1752. In the period 1769-73 a printer named Guillot evidently operated presses in both Port-au-Prince and Cap Français with the royal patent. Guillot either died or retired the year this was printed, and was succeeded by a printer named Donnet. A rare and highly important imprint, describing the complex rules that governed free African-Americans in the slave culture of Saint Domingue. OCLC 172819628.

        Discurso Sobre a Inutilidade dos Esponsaes dos Filhos Celebrados...

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-stemped 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.

Il insiste à nouveau ici sur le fondement naturel de la morale, qu'il détache ainsi de tout principe religieux.

Mit textkritischen Anmerkungen und Ausfällen gegen die Apostel (\"unstudierte Leute, die weder Plan noch Ausdruck zu wählen wußten), den griechischen Urtext (\"Bastart von einer Sprache\") und Luthers Bibelübersetzung (\"mytischer, zweydeutiger und dunkler Kram\"); von Goethe kongenial in dem \"Prolog zu den neusten Offenbarungen Gottes\" verspottet (\"So redt\' ich, wenn ich Christus wär\"). - Die Übersetzung führte zu scharfen Angriffen gegen Bahrdt und zu Kontroversen u.a. zwischen Lessing und Johann Melchior Goeze. - Der Theologe, Freimaurer und intellektuelle Abenteuerer Bahrdt (1741-92) gehört zu den schillerndsten Persönlichkeiten der deutschen Aufklärung, dessen Werk (trotz wachsenden Interesses in jüngster Zeit) noch immer einer adäquaten wissenschaftlichen Neubewertung harrt. Mehrfach wegen heterodoxer und rationalistischer Lehren aus Professuren in Leipzig, Halle und Gießen geschaßt, wegen der \"Neusten Offenbarungen\" seiner Dürkheimer Superintendentur verwiesen, danach in Halle bis zum nächsten Eklat mühevoll geduldet, mit seiner Dienstmagd in wilder Ehe zusammenlebend und auf eigenem Weinberg eine Gastwirtschaft betreibend, wurde Bahrdt schließlich wegen seines satirischen Widerstands gegen das Wöllnersche Religionsedikt eingekerkert und starb bald nach der Festungshaft. Er begründete einen eigenen Illuminatenorden, die \"Deutsche Union der Zweiundzwanziger\", und verfaßte eine Flut von Polemiken und Kleinschriften. /// Auf dem Innendeckel gestochenes (schlesisches?)

Om denna resa skriver Alf Åberg: "I slutet av december 1769 lyfte skeppet Finland ankar vid Älvsborg och styrde kosan mot Kanton. Ombord på skeppet befann sig de båda personer som skulle bli våra ryktbaraste Kinafarare. Den ene var skeppets kapten Carl Gustaf Ekeberg, som tidigare gjort sju lyckade Kinafärder. Han förde vetenskapliga dagböcker under sina resor. Han utarbetade sjökort, gjorde observationer över den magnetiska missvisningen till sjöss och samlade märkvärdiga ting. Som belöning för sina insatser blev han invald som medlem i Vetenskapsakademien. [...] Den högt frejdade och bildade kaptenen fick som skeppspräst på Finland den 23-årige Jacob Wallenberg. Han var upplysningsman liksom Ekeberg. Också han skrev en resebeskrivning, den berömda Min son på galejan"
