        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-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.

D’Holbach (1723-1789) publia cet essai trois ans après le "Système de la nature", qui avait créé une vive polémique, l'auteur défendant des propos athées et matérialistes. Il insiste à nouveau ici sur le fondement naturel de la morale, qu'il détache ainsi de tout principe religieux. Pour d'Holbach "la morale convenable à l'homme, doit être fondée sur la nature de l'homme; il faut qu'elle lui apprenne ce qu'il est, le but qu'il se propose, & les moyens d'y parvenir". Aux armes de Paule-Louise-Jeanne-Baptiste-Elisabeth-Geneviève de Remigny-de-Joux, marquise de Feillens. Née en 1735, elle épousa le marquis de Feillens en 1760.

      Riga, bey Johann Friedrich Hartknoch 1773-74. 4 Teile in 2 Bänden. 418, (2); (4), 376; (30), 466; (4), 379, (1) Seiten. Kl. 8° (16 x 10,5 cm). Halblederbände der Zeit auf fünf Bünden mit reicher Rokoko-Rückenvergoldung, goldgeprägten Rückenschildern, Lederecken, Kiebitzpapierbezügen, grau gefärbtem Schnitt und Marmorpapiervorsätzen. Skandalträchtige, entmythologisierende Bibelübersetzung (\"Keine Übersetzung, sondern eine vorsätzlich und frevelhafte Schändung\", J.M. Goeze) in empfindsam-moderner Sprache. 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"

        DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, in Which the Words are deduced from their Originals, and Illustrated in Their Different Significations by Examples from the Best Writers. To Which are Prefixed a History of the Language and An English Grammar

      London: by W. Strahan for W. Strahan, J.& F. Rivington [and others], 1773. 2 volumes. The Fourth edition, the highly important final folio edition to be revised by Johnson himself. Provenance: Sir James & Lucy Esdaile (inscription dated (?)1775); James Kennedy Esdaile (armorial bookplate); Edmund Esdaile, Pembroke College, Oxford (inscription). Title-pages printed in red and black. Royal folio (425 X 265mm), in original binding of full calf over thick boards, the backs expertly restored to full period grandeur with elaborate gilt tooled compartments with grand central tools and extensive additional tooling all in gilt between gilt decorated bands, two compartments with contrasting red and green labels gilt lettered and decorated, endpapers marbled. A very attractive set, the original calf with some pleasant age, corners consolidated, first two leaves of Vol. I with some normal creasing, the text clean and fresh, withal a very solid, handsome copy in fine state. A VERY HANDSOME SET OF THE HIGHLY IMPORTANT FOURTH EDITION, which was the last in which Samuel Johnson himself had any involvement. TEXTUALLY, IT IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE BEST EDITION of Johnson's great work and THE MOST IMPORTANT EDITION AFTER THE FIRST. It contains Johnson's advertisement (THE FIRST EDITION TO DO SO) in which he states, 'Perfection is unattainable, but nearer and nearer approaches may be made; and finding my Dictionary about to be reprinted, I have endeavoured, by a revisal, to make it less reprehensible'. Johnson, in undertaking the vast work of creating his dictionary, set out to perform single handed for the English language what the French Academy, a century before, had attempted for French. He hope to produce "a dictionary by which the pronunciation of our language may be fixed, and its attainment facilitated;" and though, of course, no language can be frozen in time, by aiming at fixing the language he succeeded in giving the standard of reputable use. As Noah Webster stated, his work "had, in philology, the effect which Newton's discoveries had in mathematics." "Johnson's achievement marked an epoch in the history of the language. The result of nine years labor, it did more than any other work before or since towards fixing the language. The preface ranks among Johnson's finest writings. The most amazing, enduring, and endearing one-man feat in the field of lexicography" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        THE PALLADIUM OF CONSCIENCE; OR, THE FOUNDATION OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY DISPLAYED, ASSERTED, AND ESTABLISHED, AGREEABLE TO ITS TRUE AND GENUINE PRINCIPLES, ABOVE THE REACH OF ALL PETTY TYRANTS...BEING A NECESSARY COMPANION FOR EVERY LOVER OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY. AND AN INTERESTING APPENDIX TO BLACKSTONE'S COMMENTARIES ON THE LAWS OF ENGLAND

      America [i.e. Philadelphia], 1773. Antique half calf and marbled boards. Old ex-lib.marks, not obtrusive, with a perforated stamp on two internal titlepages and one text leaf. Lightly tanned. Overall, internally clean and very good. The third printing by Bell of this important and influential commentary on Blackstone, and the first one published under the present title. 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, 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 second 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. Evans is mistaken in attributing a publication date of 1774 to the present printing, it is actually 1773. A scarce and important consideration of personal liberties, published on the eve of the Revolution.

        Ragionamento sopra l'uso ed abuso del tabacco.Rome, Arcangelo Casaletti, 1773. 8vo. Yellow wrappers (ca. 1900?).

      Arents 875; ICCU (8 copies). Rare first and only edition of a treatise on the use and abuse of tobacco, according to its own title, though the author, the physician Giuseppe Maria Silvestri, regards nearly all use as abuse. Silvestri strongly opposes all use of tobacco for pleasure or in social activities, considering it extremely dangerous and evil. He cites his own experiments injecting tobacco juice into the blood veins of animals, which rapidly caused convulsions and death. He also quotes extensively from previous medical writers and others citing deaths from its use as snuff or from smoking. Medicinal used carefully supervised by a knowledgeable physician he finds acceptable in cases of extreme need. Finally he declares that God put tobacco in America because it was not suited for use by Europeans. He nevertheless provides some information on its origins, introduction to Italy and preparation for use.With library stamp. Some minor and mostly marginal foxing, but still in good condition. A vociferous treatise against smoking.

        The Gentleman's Magazine and Historical Chronicle 1773.

      London: 1773 - Vol. XLII. 8vo, (iv) 655pp & 17pp index, 22 copper plate engravings, some folding, & 1 folding map. Directions to the Binder for placing the plates calls for a Chart of the S. Sea at p590, but this plate was obviously never included as there is no impression mark. Bound in original full diced calf, raised bands, gilt title. Hinges starting, extremes rubbed o/w a very good copy. Contains 6 articles about Cook & the S. Pacific, ranging from 4 to 7 pages each in length. The engraving of a kangaroo at p320 (after George Stubbs) is the first published representation of a kangaroo. The breadfruit and Maori canoe illustrated at p433 are after Parkinson. These are rather oddly engraved with a cut of a coin, which a reader wishes to have identified. 2 articles covering the discovery of the East coast of Australia & Tahiti titled "An Epitome of the Voyage round the World, by Lieutenant Cook." Also "An Epitome of the Dolphin and Tamar's Voyage round the World, under the Command of Commodore Byron and Capt. Mourat" and "Epitome of Capt. Wallis's Voyage round the World." There is a little mis-numbering of pages sprinkled throughout, but particularly in the Sept.& Dec. issues. September should start at page 417, (August correctly ends at p416), but instead September starts at p. 409. It runs from 409 to 424 correctly, then skips to p. 433. However, this is a printer's mis-numbering error, as the text flows continuously through p 470, 4pp addenda. (There even appears to be an extra (unnumbered page here). November ends p 584, but December starts at p. 576 & runs through p. 624. There follows a Supplement numbered pp 629-655, then an Index of 17 unnumbered pages. The numbering after December makes it appear that there are 5pp missing - however, the format for December is consistent with previous months, and we feel this is just another printer's error.

        Andrew Marvell's Second Address

      1773 - (PHILADELPHIA) (GODDARD, William). Andrew Marvell’s Second Address to the Inhabitants of Ppiladelphia [sic]. Philadelphia: [Printed by William Goddard], 1773. Octavo, disbound; pp. 16. $1800.First edition of this 1773 pamphlet opposing the construction of a new public market in Philadelphia, attributed to printer and journalist William Goddard by Evans.Using the pseudonym Andrew Marvell, Goddard published two works in June 1773 opposing a plan to erect a new city market in the streets of Philadelphia (on what was then High Street, later renamed Market Street). The first was a broadside dated June 10th, followed by this pamphlet dated June 18th. He vigorously objects to “the present design of the corporation to erect shambles in the street of this city,” noting “the illegality of their proceedings and badness of their cause.” He quotes from a petition sent to the mayor of Philadelphia and complains that ignoring it is “contrary to Magna Charta, and inconsistent with an equal distribution of justice.” “Philadelphians oppose a council attempt to erect a new city market. The Council, in the interests of the farmers, voted to have a market place erected on Market Street between Third and Fourth. This was much against the wishes of the property owners of that section, and taking the law into their own hands, they ‘tore down the market as fast as it was erected, demolishing at night what was built by day.’… The controversy was finally settled through the intervention of the Society of Friends, and the Council ordered the construction stopped” (Rosenbach). “A number of handbills and addresses on this subject and against the building of the market were issued over various signatures… The opposition became popular, the plea being that the corporation threatened to swallow up the people’s liberties; but selfish and individual interests seem to have been at the bottom of the controversy. The Council, in place of building a new market, made some changes in the meal market to accommodate the country people… Twenty new stalls were also added to the new market on the southern bounds of the city” (Sharf, History of Philadelphia, p. 266).

        THE REVOLUTION IN NEW-ENGLAND JUSTIFIED, AND THE PEOPLE THERE VINDICATED FROM THE ASPERSIONS CAST UPON THEM BY MR. JOHN PALMER, IN HIS PRETENDED ANSWER TO THE DECLARATION PUBLISHED BY THE INHABITANTS OF BOSTON, AND THE COUNTRY ADJACENT, ON THE DAY WHEN THEY SECURED THEIR LATE OPPRESSORS, WHO ACTED BY AN ILLEGAL AND ARBITRARY COMMISSION FROM THE LATE KING JAMES. TO WHICH IS ADDED, A NARRATIVE OF PROCEEDINGS OF SIR EDMOND ANDROSSE AND HIS ACCOMPLICES, WHO ALSO ACTED BY AN ILLEGAL AND ARBITRARY COMMISSION FROM THE LATE KING JAMES, DURING HIS GOVERNMENT IN NEW ENGLAND

      Printed in the Year 1691. Boston: Re-printed and sold by, 1773. Antique-style three-quarter speckled calf and marbled boards, spine gilt extra, leather label. Very good. The second printing, following the extremely rare 1691 Boston edition, which is rated a "d" in Howes. The present edition is itself rated a "b" in terms of rarity by Howes. The great patriot printer, Isaiah Thomas, was no doubt asking his fellow New Englanders to draw inevitable comparisons between the oppressive administration of 17th-century Massachusetts governor, Edmund Andros and their own day. Andros outraged the Puritans of Massachusetts by enforcing unpopular British laws, restricting town meetings, promoting the Church of England, and other seemingly intolerable acts. Thomas published this edition in the wake of the Boston Tea Party, and the significance and timeliness of this pamphlet would be self-evident to any American of patriotic leanings. Authorship has been ascribed to Increase Mather, but the "To the Reader" is signed with the initials "E.R." and "S.S." Edward Rawson was the longtime Massachusetts colonial secretary, and Samuel Sewall was a prominent Boston merchant, jurist, publisher, and diarist.

Together, 10 volumes. Expertly bound to style in 18th-century diced russia, covers with decorative roll tool border, spines divided into six (text) or eight (atlas) compartments by horizontal fillets and decorative rolls, red morocco lettering-piece in the second, green morocco label in the fourth, with small onlaid oval of red morocco bearing the volume number of the text vols. or the word Atlas, the compartments otherwise decorated with star and circle tool at each corner and large centrally-placed star tool or fouled-anchor tool, sprinkled edges. A fine complete set of all three of Cook's great voyages of discovery: "the basis for any collection of Pacific books" (Hill), here including the first edition of Kippis's "Life of Captain James Cook," the first and most important English biography of the famed explorer. Cook's first voyage included visits to Tahiti and New Zealand, and the tracing of the east coast of Australia was one of the most perilous feats of navigation in the whole recorded history of exploration. The second voyage pushed further south than any previous navigators in search of a southern continent, as well as visiting numerous Pacific islands. The third voyage returned to islands previously visited, discovered Hawaii, and explored the northwest coast of America from Alaska to Oregon. The text of these official reports form an invaluable record of the voyages, but they are enhanced enormously by the 219 plates, maps, charts and views. This set includes the preferred second edition of the Third Voyage. The typography of the second edition text of the third voyage is generally considered superior to the first (Hughs took over the printing from Strahan and re-set all the text). Contemporary support for this view is reported by Forbes who quotes an inscription in a set presented by Mrs. Cook to her doctor which notes "the second edition being much superior to the first both in paper & letterpress." Also included with this set is the 1782 first edition of Kippis's biography, the first and most important English biography of Cook which "was intended to give a well-balanced account of his life from birth to death" (Hill). It includes his early life as well as details his surveys of Newfoundland and Labrador and his three voyages, but most importantly Kippis reprints most of David Samwell's eyewitness account of Cook's death. "The famous accounts of Captain Cook's three voyages form the basis for 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 had done together. He was really the first scientific navigator and his voyages made great contributions to many fields of knowledge" (Hill).

        Ledum [Labrador Tea]

      [Nuremberg], 1773. Engraving, coloured by hand, by J.J. or J.E.Haid. Very good condition apart from a small greenish spot and minor bit of adhesive residue in the left margin. 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...[N]othing to equal them was seen in the past or will be in the future." Christoph Trew, 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.
