        Autograph document.

      N. p. o. d.. Small 4to. 3 pp. on bifolium.. Notes on how to organize a university class on physics: "la principale difference entre monsieur biot et moi consiste en ce que je pense qu'avant de traiter la partie experimentale de la physique qui commence a la seconde partie par l'etude du calorique, on doit donner dans la premiere partie toute la partie de physique mathematique qui quoiqu'on l'appuie dans ce cours serait susceptible de l'etre purement geometriquement en partant de l'attraction a distance qui est la meme chose que la pesanteur pour le mouvement des planetes, et des forces attractives et repulsives dont l'action n'est sensible qu'a des distances insensibles (selon la definition de mr. de la place) qui expliquent l'elasticite, les phenomenes capillaires. au lieu que mr.biot prefere de donner d'abord la pesanteur absolue et specifique, la theorie du pendule, &c. puis passer a la theorie de la chaleur, et revenir (2) ensuite dans une 3me partie par ce que j'ai compris dans la premiere relativement aux forces qui ne sont sensibles qu'a une distance insensible, a l'elasticite, a la durete des corps et aux phenomenes capillaires. son motif[s] est que la connaissance des effets de la chaleur sert a expliquer ces forces attractives et repulsives a tres petites distances. Quand cela serait les eleves ont vu dans le cours du jeudi tout ce qu'il faudrait des proprietes de la chaleur, pour comprendre tout ce qu'on leur dirait dans la premiere partie du cours de l'annee de philosophie, quand meme il n'auraient (3) pas encore vu l'examen complet des proprietes de la chaleur contenu dans la seconde partie. Dans l'arrangement de mr.biot la description et l'usage de la balance et du pendule sont dans la premiere partie. il y mesure l'intensite de la pesanteur ; et c'est dans la 3me partie que se trouverait la description et l'usage de la balance de torsion et du dynamometre et qu'on donnerait les experiences de [illegible] sur la densite moyenne de la terre. dans mon arrangement toutes ces choses, si intimement unies, se trouvent ensemble dans la premiere partie." - Jean-Baptiste Biot (1774-1862) was a French physicist and astronomer.

        Elementi di fisica del Locke.

      Carpi, Anton-Francesco Pagliari, 1774.. (10), 72 SS. Mit Holzschnittvignette am Titel, 2 rad. Initialen, einem rad. Kopfstück, einer rad. Tafel sowie mehreren Holzschnittvignetten. Italienischer Interimspappband der Zeit. 8vo.. Außerordentlich seltene, hübsch illustrierte italienische Ausgabe von John Lockes posthumen "Elements of Natural Philosophy". In Oates, dem Landhaus von Lord Masham, wo er seit 1691 lebte und 1704 starb, beaufsichtigte der große Philosoph auch den Unterricht des jungen Francis Masham. In seinem unveröffentlichten Nachlass hinterließ er das Konzeptmanuskript dieses bald nach 1698 entstandenen naturwissenschaftlichen Propädeutikums, das wohl auch den Einfluß seines Freundes Newton verrät. Das Werk erschien erstmals 1720 unselbständig, dann ab 1741 auch in selbständiger Form. Eine französische Übersetzung kam 1751 heraus, eine russische 1774. Die vorliegende italienische Fassung, übersetzt von Giulio Cesare Ferrari und gewidmet dem Florentiner Patrizier Ippolito Giuliano Bagnesi, ist auch Lockes Bibliographen J. C. Attig unbekannt. - Unbeschnittenes, breitrandiges Exemplar; zu Beginn unbedeutend braunfleckig. Am hinteren fliegenden Vorsatz zeitgenöss. hs. Besitzvermerk "Cajetani Bissoni". Gebunden im schlichten, aber sauberen italienischen Pappband, wie er seit der Inkunabelzeit praktisch unverändert im Gebrauch war. Über ICCU nur ein einziger Nachweis (Bologna, Biblioteca comunale dell'Archiginnasio). - ICCU UBOE\040333. Vgl. Attig 790ff.

Miller, K.F. Kohler, J.H. Haid u.a. fortgesetzt nur bis1781 fortgesetzt). - Christian Friedrich Daniel Schubart (1739-1791), Dichter, Organist (in Ludwigsburg), Komponist und Journalist erlangte historische Bedeutung durch seine scharf formulierten sozialkritischen Schriften, mit denen er die absolutistische Herrschaft und deren Dekadenz im damaligen Herzogtum Württemberg öffentlich anprangerte. Hochinteressant ist besonders die in dieser Zeitschrift dargestelle Entwicklung der Französischen Revolution.

        A New Voyage round the World

      New York,: James Rivington,, 1774.. New York,: James Rivington,, 1774.. Two volumes, octavo, with two folding engravings and a folding map; slight browning and staining as normal for American books of the period; an excellent copy in contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly respined with portions of original spines laid down. The highly important first American publication of Cook's first voyage. This is also the first American work to publish details of the Australian east coast, and the map is the first serious American depiction of a complete Australian continent.The book is very rare on the market, remarkably few copies having appeared for sale in modern times, most of them imperfect or in less than satisfactory condition. American books of this period tend to survive in small numbers, invariably in poor state. In this context the copy offered here is unusually good. This is an example of the first issue, with seventeen pages of subscribers' names (a second issue had eighteen pages, while a third issue appeared without any list of subscribers).The frontispiece to the first volume (perhaps the second too - it is unsigned) was engraved by the American folk hero Paul Revere not long before the famous Midnight Ride, the event that ensured his leap to fame. Revere (1734-1818) was a gold and silversmith who sometimes supplemented his income with other work. During the economic depression that preceded the Revolution he began to work as a dentist and also as an engraver, producing a number of book illustrations along with more ephemeral material, such as business cards and bills of fare.Very few accounts of Cook's three voyages were published in America before the end of the eighteenth century: this was the first, and just six more would follow. One of the reasons for this may have been the general availability of imported English publications, but as Holmes points out, from a broadside dated 26 March 1774, there was a good economic incentive for a local publication in this case: "Whosoever would purchase the English Edition of the late Voyage round the World... must give Three Guineas for it; which excessive price has engaged James Rivington's Proposing to the public, a complete edition of that work... for one dollar and a half...".Beddie, 656; Holmes, 9.

        EXTRACTS FROM THE VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE AMERICAN CONTINENTAL CONGRESS, HELD AT PHILADELPHIA ON THE 5th OF SEPTEMBER 1774. CONTAINING THE BILL OF RIGHTS, A LIST OF GRIEVANCES, OCCASIONAL RESOLVES, THE ASSOCIATION...PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF THE CONGRESS

      Philadelphia: Printed by William and Thomas Bradford, 1774.. [4],23,36pp. Half title. Modern cloth, leather label. Unobtrusive ex-lib. stamps on titlepage and three other leaves. Else a very good, fresh copy with wide margins. One of the most significant documents of the American Revolution, condensing the most important proceedings of the First Continental Congress between Sept. 5 and Oct. 26, 1774. This publishes the Declaration of Rights, passed Oct. 14, by which Congress asserts the colonists' rights as Englishmen and claims they were violated by the Stamp Act; the Townsend Act; the Coercive Acts; and the Quebec Acts. It further asserts their right to peaceably assemble and have their own legislatures. The Declaration is followed by the Association, by which the colonies bound themselves to an agreement regarding non-importation, non- exportation, and non-consumption of British goods, and resolved to reassemble the following May if wrongs had not been redressed. This is followed by two addresses, one to the people of Great Britain and the other to the inhabitants of the colonies, justifying the conduct of the Congress. These actions laid the basis for American resistance and organized rebellion which escalated into open warfare in the spring of 1775. Needless to say, the actions of the Continental Congress were of the greatest interest in the colonies, and these EXTRACTS... were published first in Philadelphia while Congress was still sitting. The Bradfords printed multiple editions in October, the first with the date of October 24th in the imprint line, and two others with "October 27th" in the same spot. The copy in hand is one of the latter issues. Printings followed in Albany, Annapolis, Boston, Hartford, Lancaster, New London, New York, Newport, Norwich, and Providence, all in 1774. HOWES E247.

La cuarta también (nº 55436), pero con el título en castellano y no da colación.-------------------- José Francisco Clavera Oncins (Capella, H., 1721 - Bolonia, Italia, 1788). Naturalista y cirujano aragonés, fue hermano coadjutor jesuita, destinado en varios colegios en Aragón. Estudió Artes y Medicina en la Universidad de Huesca, siendo allí también bachiller en cirugía. Fue enfermero y boticario en varios de los colegios regentados por jesuitas. Con el duque de Villahermosa estuvo también en Madrid, y más tarde se le destinó a Italia, donde escribió gran parte de su obra, tomando allí contacto con el arquiatra Saliceti. Personaje polifacético y gran publicista, editó un elevado número de obras relativas a diferentes temas religiosos. En el campo estrictamente científico muestra Clavera una buena información acerca de la ciencia médica del momento y sus trabajos corresponden a una línea que podríamos definir como ilustrada. Algunos de ellos son simples obras de divulgación de tipo práctico, destinadas a la educación de la población en general, como El médico instruido que enseña al hombre a curarse a sí mismo con el agua y con los simples (Ferrara, J. Rinaldi, 1774); o bien dedicadas a los enfermeros de órdenes religiosas, como unas Observaciones físicas, médicas y botánicas útiles. En la línea del naturalismo terapéutico de la Ilustración está su Disertación sobre varias fuentes y otras cosas pertenecientes a la historia natural y médica, no solamente del Reino de Aragón, sino de otros. Fue defensor de F. Solano de Luque, médico que alcanzó gran fama en la Europa de la época al estudiar el significado diagnóstico de las perturbaciones del pulso y autor antidogmático, fiel a la observación clínica, en su obra Scoperte el massime di Solano di Luque medico spagnuolo (Descubrimientos y máximas de Solano de Luque médico español, Ferrara J. Rinaldi, 1773). Esta obra, por otro lado forma parte del elevado número de textos dedicados a polemizar sobre la conveniencia o no de seguir la doctrina del pulso, que en el fondo enfrentó a los partidarios de una medicina no escolástica, basada en la clínica, con los seguidores de forma inflexible del mantenimiento de una medicina fundamentada en los viejos textos galénicos. En esta línea renovadora cabría también añadir una Nueva razón de la Medicina Práctica (Venecia, J. B. Constanti, 1775). Varios opúsculos relativos a determinados tipos de fiebres endémicas, completan lo más significativo de la obra de Clavera. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Die einzige Poetik aller Zeiten und Völker. Die einzigen Regeln die möglich sind!... Das alles aus dem tiefestem Herzen eigenster Erfahrung mit einer bezaubernden Simplizität hingeschrieben!". - Klopstock verwandte besondere Sorgfalt auf den Druck, statt eines Druckfehlerverzeichnisses wurden 8 fehlerhafte Blätter neu gedruckt und als Kartonblätter eingefügt. - Auf besserem Papier gedruckt.

Premiere édition française de cet important traité sur le contrôle des rivières, de l'érosion des crues ainsi qu'un traité sur les canaux. Traduction du livre publié sous le titre: ''Del modo di regolare i fiumi e i torrenti''. Paolo Frisi (1728-1784), fut un prêtre, astronome et mathématicien. Instruit par les Barnabites de Milan, il écrivit à l'âge de 21 ans une thèse sur la figure de la terre. Le Roi de Sardaigne lui confia la chaire de Philosophie au collège de Casale Monferrato dans le Piémont. Membres des Accadémie de Stockholm, Berlin, Londres et Paris, il se lia d'amitié avec D'Alembert, Bailly, Condorcet, La Condamine. Il s'opposa avec vigueur aux jésuites. Il étudia le mouvement de la lune. En 1781 il traita le problème isopérimètrique, déjà abordé par les frères Bernoulli et Euler. Il introduisit les paratonnères en Italie et traça le canal reliant la ville de Milan à celle de Pavie. Pour ses connaissances de la cinématique et de l'hydraulique, il fut fréquement consulté sur les questions de gestion des canaux et autres voies d'eau dans de nombreuses parties de l'Europe. Il est notamment l'auteur des ouvrages suivants: ''De gravitate universali'' (1768), ''Cosmographia physica e matematica'' (1774-1775), ''Opuscoli filosofici'' (1781), ainsi que des essais monographiques sur Galilée, Cavalieri, Newton et D'Alembert.

        Le Vrai Sens Du Système De La Nature, Ouvrage posthume (The True Meaning of The System of Nature, A posthumous work).

      [Dufour & Roux], London [i.e. Maastricht] 1774 - Half title + TP + [i]-iii = Avant-Propos + [1]-151. Octavo. First Edition, First Printing (Smith A.4a). The first edition, first printing (the 151 page edition rather than the later 96 or 84 page issues) of Helvetius' Supporting Arguments for Baron d'Holbach's Système De La NatureThe first edition, first printing of this philosophical expansion and justification for the ideas found in d'Holbach's Système de la Nature (1770). The book was later republished with that book as a supplemental second half. Some speculate that despite the attribution to Helvétius on the title page that it was actually written by d'Holbach himself [Mornet and Lough] while other seriously question the attribution to Helvetius without ascribing it to any other author. Despite these uncertainties, the book certainly fits nicely into the controversial arguments made in d'Holbach's Système and in Helvetius' De l'esprit and was a genuine force in the arguments that swirled around the emergent arguments supporting d'Holbach's radical materialism. Contemporary blue boards (worn and chipped a few spots and on the corners) with half-leather spine which has five raised bands and gilt decorations in each compartment and titled on a red field. Overall, a lovely and "authentic" copy of this influential little book. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        BUCOLICA ET GEORGICA

      Londini, 1774. Hardcover. 241 x 152 mm (9 1/2 x 6"). 4 p.l., xv, [3], 144 pp., [2] leaves. Two volumes bound in one, with continuous pagination. LOVELY 19TH CENTURY PURPLE-BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO BY TOUT (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with cresting cornerpieces densely tooled in gilt with flowers, circlets, and much stippling, raised bands, spines lavishly gilt in panels with long-stemmed flowers radiating from a central double circlet and with stippled background punctuated by large and small gilt circlets, turn-ins framed by gilt fillets and featuring long, graceful floral cornerpieces, all edges gilt. PROFUSELY ILLUSTRATED: with engraved historiated initials; head- and tailpieces; 10 engraved titles, half titles, or dedications; 68 full-page engravings (some on two sides of one plate); and one folding plate with an engraving on each side. Offsetting on front and rear free endpaper from binder's glue used for turn-ins, leaves a shade less than bright, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, the text unusually clean, fresh, and smooth, and the sparkling binding unworn. This is the complete Pine Virgil, with many attractive engravings, offered here in an elegant binding by Tout. According to Dibdin, this work was begun by "old man" John Pine in the 1750s and completed by his son, portrait painter Robert Edge Pine (1730-88) almost twenty years after his father's death. Dibdin further notes that "it is valuable chiefly for the elegance of the plates," which depict classical scenes, monuments, coins, and muses. John Pine (1690-1756) was probably the finest English engraver of his day, and reproduced works for a number of French artists. He published an edition of Horace with much-acclaimed engravings in 1733; DNB says that its illustrious subscription list encompassed "the great and the good from every corner of Europe, including the kings of England, Spain, and Portugal." Pine intended our Virgil as a follow-up to that success, but he died before it could be completed. As attested to here, the Tout bindery turned out consistently fine work, especially notable for its elaborate gilt tooling.

        A Political Survey of BritainÖ

      London,: for the author; and sold by Richardson and Urquhart, and others, 1774.. Two volumes, large quarto, upper joints of both volumes just starting, a little inoffensive wear to the extremities; yet a fine set in magnificent tree calf, flat spines featuring gilt foliate ornament with green and crimson morocco labels. Redolent of the 1780s in its strictly contemporary binding, Campbell's Political Survey describes the England that the First Fleet left behind.More than dry political economy, the survey contains a wealth of information regarding the trades, agriculture, transportation, fisheries, seaports, markets and natural resources of Britain. The author was appointed the King's agent for the province of Georgia in 1765; accordingly this survey is rich with reference to the American and West Indian colonies (although the possibility of revolution is conspicuously absent). The subtitle itself says much of the author's aspirations for national self-sufficiency: the book is 'intended to shew That we have not as yet approached near the Summit of Improvement, but that it will afford Employment to many Generations before they push to their utmost Extent the natural advantages of Great Britain.'This set, with its elegant binding, bears the bookplates and ownership signature of Alexander Allardyce (c.1743-1801), a Scottish slaver who made his fortune in the West Indies. Upon his return home, Allardyce entered parliament and spent lavishly on the improvement of Dunottar House near Aberdeen and its magnificent walled garden.Goldsmith, 11082.

A handsome edition of the first translation into English. & & Born in Shiraz, Iran in the first part of the 13th century, Saadi traveled extensively throughout the Middle East and Central Asia. He completed his most famous work, "Gulistan," in 1258-59, which combines profound wisdom and subtle humor in a collection of poems, aphorisms and stories. Read and studied by men of great learning throughout the ages, Saadi';s impact on our literature and culture is far from trivial. & & "Saadi exhibits perpetual variety of situation and incident ... he finds room on his narrow canvas for the extremes of lot, the play of motives, the rule of destiny, the lessons of morals, and the portraits of great men. He has furnished the originals of a multitude of tales and proverbs which are current in our mouths, and attributed by us to recent writers." (Ralph Waldo Emerson).

Uncommon as such, sometimes referred to as Pennants 2nd and 3rd tours of Scotland. (ESTC T113906 & T113911. Allibone 1553. Ben Cohen 118). Pennant, naturalist, traveller, and writer, undertook a tour of Scotland, chiefly of the highlands, a region then little known by outsiders yet of interest for its natural history. It is also of interest for its descriptions and for its method: Pennant circulated ‘Queries, addressed to the Gentlemen and Clergy of North-Britain’ [Scotland] with standard questions about natural history and the past and present state of the parish in order to allow locals to give ‘a fuller and more satisfactory Account of their Country, than it is the Power of a Stranger and transient Visitant to give’ (Pennant, Tour in Scotland, 287).

With a final leaf of advertisements for Benjamin White in London. ESTC Citation No. T113910 Pennant is sometimes considered the leading British zoologist after John Ray and before Charles Darwin. But he was also an inveterate traveller who, In 1769, undertook a tour of Scotland, chiefly of the highlands, a region then little known by outsiders yet of interest for its natural history. A Tour in Scotland, 1769, first published in 1771, "is of interest for its descriptions and for its method: Pennant circulated ‘Queries, addressed to the Gentlemen and Clergy of North-Britain’ [Scotland] with standard questions about natural history and the past and present state of the parish in order to allow locals to give ‘a fuller and more satisfactory Account of their Country, than it is the Power of a Stranger and transient Visitant to give.' In that regard Pennant has much in common with the earlier use of circulated queries by natural philosophers such as Robert Boyle and, in Scotland, by the natural historian and geographer Sir Robert Sibbald, and Pennant importantly prefigures the parish-based assessment of Scotland published by Sir John Sinclair in the 1790s."
