      London: Printed for T. Longman and G. Robinson. B. Law. and J. Wilkie. 1773 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. [ii], xvi, 400, including half-title, 18 folding engraved plates (at pp. 164, 180, 186, 194, 206, 212, 230, 242, 290, 300, 326, 328, 368, 384 (4 plates that should have been bound before page 368), 400, contemporary annotation in lower margin of p. viii, contemporary calf, recently rebacked to match with gilt spine and raised bands, morocco label, and corners restored; slight stains on front free end-paper and verso of half-title, but a very good copy with the armorial book-plate of William Lewis Newman on the front paste-down end-paper. In the dedication of the work to "Lord Stanley," Thomas Hatton (fl. 1757 - 1774) notes his family seat is in the "centre of the whole support of this great branch of trade, which is the subject of the following sheets." He complains however that the number of those employed in the clock and watch trade is only one fourth of what it once was: "a great part of it is got into the hands of Pagan and Christian Jews, who carry on the business to suit their brethren, and have sold the faith of the Nation abroad." In the preface, he mentions previous works by Hugyens, Hook, Derham, and Martin. In the same year, Hatton also published his Essay on Gold Coin. It was reprinted in 1774, with new material. A facsimile of the above work appeared in 1978.

        Mémoire sur les Opinions qui partagent les Militaires,

      Paris, Claude-Antoine Jombert, , 1773. suivi du Traité des Armes Défensives, corrigé et augmenté. Octavo. (192 × 133mm). Contemporary half vellum on marbled boards, tan morocco label. 4 folding plates. One plate torn without loss, light foxing and browning, a little rubbed externally, but overall very good. First Edition thus. Maizeroy was, despite the claims of Guichard, the most important expert of his time on the art of war in antiquity. He pursued the "scholarly study of Greek and Roman warfare, which he compared with, and brought to bear on, modern warfare... Throughout history... war conveyed clear lessons, provided it was seriously studied. "The theory of the Greeks was fixed, certain and uniform, because it was treasured up in methodical treatises." No change could affect the universal fundamentals of the art of war. The search for the perfect system of tactics is... the principal theme in Maizeroy's writings... the principles of tactics were not only universally valid but also based upon a rigorous and precise rationale of mathematics" (Gat The Origins of Military Thought, pp. 40–41). The present work discusses current thinking on column and line, grand manoeuvres, artillery and the role of the defensive with reference to Saxe, Folard, Guibert, and others. Brief notices of the Battles of Prestonpans and Falkirk.

        The Merits and Defects of the Dead by their Ingenious Secretary.

      London May 1st 1773 - Broadside, oblong folio, overall 19" x 12", hand-coloured engraving by William Austin, minor usage, printed one side as issued. A satire on George Lyttleton. First Baron Lyttleton (1709-1773) of Hagley, Worcestershire, author of 'Dialogues Of The Dead'. The illustration shows Lyttleton in the guise of the Grand Reaper: a tall, lanky figure sitting on a gravestone and holding a sickle. Facing him is a gravedigger holding out a human skull with the lines 'Life is a jest and all things show it, I thought so once but now I know it' emenating from its mouth and billowing towards Lyttleton. The gist of the satire is that Lyttleton who once assumed to record the conversations of the dead was himself not much longer for this world- as, indeed, was the case as he was to pass away barely 3 months after the publication of this broadside.

      printed for John and Francis Rivington, William Johnston, Thomas Longman and Thomas Cadell, London 1773 - First and only edition, 4to, pp. [8], viii, 57, [1], plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; mid 20th century half calf over marbled boards, gilt-decorated spine, red morocco label; overall appearance is fine. A "hack writer" who possessed a "strong love of notoriety, [and] a jealous and perverse temper," Kenrick (?1725-1779) "was often drunk and violent. He became the enemy of every decent and successful person, and so notorious as a libeler that few condescended to answer him. His vanity lead him to fancy himself equal to any task without serious study. In his later years Kenrick seldom wrote without a bottle of brandy at his elbow. Though a superlative scoundrel, he was clever, and especially proud of the rapidity of his writing; even his more serious works seldom occupied him for more than two days" (see DNB for a lively account of this literary curmudgeon). Among those most frequently attacked and offended were Johnson and Boswell, Garrick, Goldsmith, Fielding, and, predictably, other famous men, who, by association would give Kendrick a name. For all his attacks on Johnson (Kenrick was violently critical of Johnson's edition of Shakespeare and his dictionary) he seems to have made good use of Johnson's lexicographic skills. A spot check of entries shows Kenrick's lexicon to be a word-for-word transcription from that of Johnson. Alston V, 283; Kennedy 6276. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Tres vol. en piel de época, lomeras cuajadas, tejuelos, cortes pintados. * Primera edición de esta interesante obra sobre medicina natural, la más importante de Juan Rancé, catedrático del Real Colegio de Cirugía de Barcelona y director de la institución en 1779. La obra se divide en tres tomos: el primero y el segundo se dedican a la materia médica interna (medicamentos evacuantes y medicamentos alterantes, respectivamente). En la primera parte, dedicada a los medicamentos evacuantes, Rancé se extiende sobre los purgantes, los eméticos, los sudoríficos, uterinos, etc. En cuanto a los alterantes, esto es, los que modifican alguna de las funciones sin provocar la salida o evacuación, el autor los distribuye en trece capítulos, entre los cuales se encuentran los aperitivos, cardíacos, carminativos, vermífugos, refrigerantes, astringentes, antiescorbúticos y narcóticos. El tercer tomo, por contra, se consagra a los medicamentos externos (que divide en universales y particulares) y está compuesto por 17 capítulos más un último apartado dedicado a los baños y aguas minerales (cita las de Caldes d'Estrach, Ribes, 1'Espluga de Francoli, Sant Hilari, Tortosa, la "Font Groga" de Valle de Hebron y la fuente de la "Satalia" a los pies de Montjuïc. Además incluye, con paginación propia, el Suplemento a la materia medica, que da las nociones, y definiciones de los medicamentos. Como curiosidad, decir que el autor cita como remedios de origen animal, en concreto entre los sudoríficos, la víbora, los excrementos de animales e incluso algunos de origen humano, como la momia o el cráneo humano, que especifica "Debe ser sacado de un hombre joven, robusto, sano, que haya muerto de una muerte violenta y que no haya sido sepultado; no se debe calcinar, como creian los antiguos, pero solamente ser raspado o reducido en polvos después de secado." Jacint Corbella, en Nota sobre el tractat de Materia medica de Joan Rancé (1773) (Gimbemat, 2004 (**), 42, 89-103) ofrece una detallada descripción de la obra y analiza de forma pormenorizada su estructura, contenido y estilo. Corbella se fija en algunos de los medicamentos propuestos para dolencias concretas, como la absenta, que fortificaría el estómago y facilitaría la digestión; el agua mercurial, la raíz de helecho y el petróleo, grandes carminativos; el mercurio como potente antivenéreo; la carne de tortuga y ternera como refrigerantes; el cuerno de ciervo, los fragmentos de las cinco piedras preciosas (amatista, esmeralda, granate, jacinto y topacio) y el hueso de sepia como absorbentes. Rancé había estudiado junto a Antoine Fizes, entre otros. Formado en Francia, era doctor en Montpellier antes de la creación del primer Colegio de Cirugía de la Península, el de Cádiz. Se trata pues de un autor con una sólida formación preparado para la docencia y concienciado con esta tarea. Sin embargo, no escribe mucho más allá de este tratado y Corbella dice que el resto de su obra no tiene un nivel "que le permita mantener el prestigio en generaciones posteriores", por lo que cayó prácticamente en el olvido. Sin embargo, el Tratado que presentamos fue importante y útil en su época, pues mejoró el grado y nivel asistencial de la población. La publicación, equilibrada, accesible y directa, tuvo además el mérito de dotar a los futuros cirujanos de una extensa formación en materia de terapéutica. Palau 248034.

        Letters on the Improvement of the Mind, Addressed to a Young Lady [With:] Miscellanies in Prose and Verse.

      London: J Walter/ E.& C. Dilly, 1773-5. - Hester Chapone (1727-1760) was one of the Bluestockings. She was associated especially with Elizabeth Carter, and Elizabeth Montagu, to whom this work is dedicated, but was also a friend of Samuel Richardson, Frances Burney dÕArblay, and Gilbert White. She came to the attention of Samuel Johnson, who admitted four of her pieces to The Rambler. The publication of Letters on the Improvement of the Mind, (1773), a treatise on female education, brought her fame, if not fortune; she was paid £50 for it. She was paid five times that for Miscellanies in Prose and Verse, which included her early verses, moral essays, and ÒThe Story of Fidelia,Ó first published in The Adventurer (See the Linda V. Troost article in An Encyclopedia of British Women Writers). Three volumes, small octavo. viii, 200; [2], 230; xii, 178, [2, ads] pp. Lacking the half-title to Volume III.

        Topographische und Chronologische Beschreibung der Pommerschen Kauf- und Handels-Stadt Anklam aus Urkunden und Historischen Nachrichten verfasset und mit einem Anhange des Herrn Pastors J.F. Sprengels zur Kirchen- und Gelehrten Geschichte.

      Greifswald. A.F. Röse (Drucker).1773.. 23 x 17,5 cm. 14 S., 5 Blatt, 614 Seiten, 3 Blatt. Original Leder. d. Zeit stark berieben.. Carl Friedrich Stavenhagen (* 7. Oktober 1723 in Anklam 26. September 1781 in Anklam) war Stadtsekretär und Historiker. Carl Friedrich Stavenhagen wurde als Sohn des Kaufmanns Gottfried Stavenhagen und seiner Ehefrau Regina, geb. Oemichen, in Anklam geboren. Nachweislich studierte er bis 1746 die Rechte an der Universität Halle. 1748 ging er nach Kurland zu nahen Verwandten. Dort wurde er Erzieher der Söhne des Kanzlers Diedrich von Keyserling . Ab 1754 war er wieder in Anklam und wurde Stadtsekretär. 1773 gab er eine Chronik von Anklam heraus, die ihn in Preußen bekannt gemacht hat. Sein Verdienst war es, dass er auf Grund seiner Tätigkeit alle wesentlichen Urkunden auswertete, zusammenfasste und sie chronologisch einordnetete. Er konnte sich dabei auf Materialien stützen, die vor ihm an der Anklamer Geschichte interessierte Persönlichkeiten aufgestellt hatten. Das Buch enthält ein Verzeichnis der 240 Subskribenden , das nachvollziehbar werden lässt, in welchen Kreisen Interesse für dieses stadtgeschichtliche Buch bestand. So wurden 84 Bücher von Einwohnern Anklams subskribiert, davon 36 von Handwerkern. 1777 wurde Stavenhagen Stadtsyndikus. Am 6. Oktober 1756 heiratete er Caroline Sophie von Scheven aus einer Anklamer Gewandschneiderfamilie (Das Schevensche Haus war in der Peenstraße 51 - das spätere Eleonorenstift). Die Geschichte der Brautwerbung hat der aus Anklam stammende Schriftsteller Konrad Maß in seinem Buch "Das Haus Stavenhagen" anschaulich geschildert. Er stammte aus einer angesehenen Patrizierfamilie, deren Vertreter vorwiegend Kaufleute waren. Nach alten Urkunden stammte die Familie aus dem Mecklenburgischen , wahrscheinlich aus der Stadt Stavenhagen . Das Stammhaus des Geschlechts der Stavenhagen war das Haus Markt 21, welches 1896 an den Ein- und Verkaufsverein verkauft und am 29. April 1945 durch deutschen Beschuss zerstört wurde. Die Familie Stavenhagen hatte in der Marienkirche eine Erbbegräbnisstelle. 1934 entdeckten Handwerker in der Marienkirche das Erbbegräbnis der Familie Stavenhagen mit 22 Särgen. Aus der beiliegenden Denkschrift aus dem Jahre 1849 ist ersichtlich, dass die Grabstelle 1773 von der Kirchenbehörde gekauft worden war. (Wikipedia). Titelblatt fehlt, gefalteter Plan der Stadt Anklam. Schwacher Wasserrand im Mittelteil, kaum sichtbar.

        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]

Etui de chagrin noir avec titre doré au dos (Riviere & Son). Très beau document manuscrit donnant l’état des gouvernements militaires en France, en 1773, un an avant la mort de Louis XV. 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.
