        Les Loisirs du chevalier d'Eon de Beaumont. Ancien ministre plenipotentiaire de France, sur divers sujets importans d'Administration, &c. pendant son séjour en Angleterre.

      Amsterdam, 1774 - First edition of the chevalier's massive treatise on public administration largely composed in 1769 at the seat of his friend the fifth Earl Ferrers at Staunton Harald. As Louis XV's controversial and secret foreign correspondent in England, D'Eon was a consistently colourful figure; his celebrity as a high-living transvestite sometimes obscuring his military, political and literary achievements. Throughout the 1770s doubts were expressed about D'Éon's sex, and wagers were made, although he himself professed to be indignant at the suggestion that he was not a man. Les Loisirs includes large dissertations on ecclesiastical history, Russian commerce (a subject on which he was expert), British affairs (including lengthy considerations of Scotland and America) and (of course) French politics. 13 vols, 8vo (205 × 107 mm). Complete with half-titles. Contemporary half calf. Rubbed and slightly dry, with occasional chipping to spine ends, some joints cracked but secure. Later armorial bookplates of the Earls of Bradford (Weston Library). [Attributes: First Edition]

        [HISTORIES]

      Birminghamiae: Typis Johannis Baskerville, 1774. n. This is the ducodecimo version of the Baskerville Classics edition of these Roman histories, offered here in an especially attractive binding. The only extant historical works of Sallust (86-34 B.C.), both included here, are his history of the conspiracy of Catiline against the senate in the year Cicero was consul, and his history of the Roman war against the Numidian (Algerian) chieftain Jugurtha, brought to its conclusion by the great soldier and populist politician Marius. As a stylist Sallust has enjoyed great fame for his artistic and epigrammatic speeches with their vividly delineated characters. Florus, who lived at the beginning of the second century A.D., wrote a summary history of Rome from earliest times to the reign of Augustus. It still merits consultation, since it rests on a tradition independent of Livy, and was a popular school text in the Middle Ages.. 180 x 114 mm. (7 1/8 x 4 1/2"). 1 p.l., 275 [i.e., 274] pp. Handsome contemporary hunter green morocco, covers with border of decorative gilt rolls, flat spines gilt in compartments with medallion centerpiece inside a dotted-rule lozenge, volute cornerpieces, gilt titling, turn-ins with decorative gilt roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt (small spot of green paint to front joint).

        Considerations on the measures carrying on with respect to the British colonies in North-America.

      London printed; Hartford reprinted: Eben. Watson 8vo (21.6 cm, 8.5"). 63, [1] pp.. 1774 One of five American editions appearing in 1774, following the London first of the same year, of this important polemic. The second Baron Rokeby was a politician and champion of civil liberties who published several pamphlets opposing Lord North's American policy; Appletons' Cyclopaedia of American Biography notes that "the measures for the coercion of the American colonies were especially repugnant to his sense of justice" (V, 287). As supportive as he was of the American cause, Robinson-Morris was also critical of Dr. Franklin, whose inflammatory writings are here compared to Fawkes's gunpowder. Period-style quarter calf with marbled paper–covered sides, leather edges tooled in blind, spine with gilt-stamped title and elegant small decorations at head and foot. Pages age-toned; three leaves with minor staining. Title-page with repaired chip to outer margin, traces of early inked inscriptions in center of page, and partially shaved inscription in upper margin. Last text page with inked inscription in lower margin, partially shaved at beginning of inscription.

L'éloge de Joseph II n'est pour Lanjuinais qu'un cadre dans lequel il expose ses opinions sur différentes matières de philosophie et d'économie politique. « Le Monarque accompli fut condamné par le Parlement à cause de la violence de certaines tirades. Ses doctrines sociales sont en grande partie empruntées à Linguet, dont il reproduit de longs passages sans le citer. Il y a de fréquentes déclamations contre l'extrême inégalité (.) La société est nécessaire. Toutefois l'homme en société est un esclave qui travaille sans cesse à user ses chaines. Il s'emporte sur le luxe qui divise la nation en deux classes ennemies : un petit nombre de propriétaires fait la loi à une infinité de journaliers, dont le salaire se trouve réduit à un strict minimum.

        Avis au peuple sur son premier besoin; nouvelle édition revue & corrigée par l’Auteur

      Amsterdam et Paris, chez Fr. Amer. Didot aîné 1774 - One volume in small 8vo ; pp. 324 ; contemporary speckled calf, re-backed using the original spine strip, spine richly gilt with red gilt lettering-piece, red edges, marbled endpapers, endpapers a bit browned, top margin with clear signs of humidity, else clean and crisp, a good copy. A new edition, first published 1768. Nicolas Baudeau (1739-1792) was the founder of the periodical Éphémérides du citoyen. Dupont de Nemours converted him to Physiocracy in 1766 and in the following years he became an important promoter of the physiocratic doctrine. According to Weulersse “l’avis au people est un livre pratique, semi-technique, puisqu’il s’agit de mouture et de boulangerie, une oeuvre écrite en vue de remédier d’urgence à la cherté, enfin d’aider aux vues saines et généreuses de l’Administration, qui en de telles circonstances porte seule le poids de la misère du peuple et de l’ignorance des subministrations ».

        Reglamento y ordenanza de S.M. para el exercicio, evoluciones, y maniobras de la cavalleria, y dragones montados de sus exercitos, y otros puntos relativos al servicio de estos cuerpos.

      Madrid: En la Imprenta de Pedro Marin Small 8vo (15 cm; 6"). [4 (including initial blank)] ff., 182 pp.. [1774] There were two 1774 editions of this manual for the Spanish cavalry and dragoons: one was a quarto with folding plates, the other this pocket, unillustrated octavo — clearly, the more personal, portable production and the one more vulnerable to destruction. It begins with general trumpet and drum calls for field, camp, and battle and proceeds to those specific for certain maneuvers, for the dragoons, etc. It then moves on to formations, and ends with instructions for movements on foot and for the use of carbines. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and CCPBE locate => only two copies of this octavo edition worldwide, in the national libraries of Spain and Chile. Contemporary mottled sheep with gilt spine extra and marbled endpapers; spine chipped, binding lightly abraded. Front hinge (inside) open; text block firmly attached to binding. Some very light waterstaining and one short marginal note; a nice, clean copy.

      1774 - The earthquakes of Guatemala, a historical review, and one of the earliest books printed at the provisional capital of Mixco. 1774. Guatemal [Mixco]. Oficina de Don Antonio Sanchez Cubillas. In folio (290 mm x 195 mm). 1 ff. + 12 pp. 1 [blank]. Unbound. Light marginal damp, else a very good copy. First edition. An historical account of the earthquakes in Guatemala from 1541 through the 1773 Santa Marta devastating earthquake, which killed hundreds and caused the capital city to be relocated. After the 1773 earthquake, the capital city of Guatemala (Antigua) was provisionally moved to Mixco; whilst there, a printing house was established, which saw the printing of this relation, which includes relevant historical information on the seismic activity of the region. This relation is closely associated with another also attributed to Gonzalez Bustillo Extracto o relacion de los autos de reconocimiento practicado en virtud de estos Reinos de Guatemala. “These rare tracts are among the earliest works printed at Mixco, a palace not mentioned by Archdeacon Cotton.” (Sabin, referring to this, and other imprints on the same subject).

        Histoire du vicomte de Turenne, maréchal - général des armées du Roi. Nouvelle Edition, augmentée des Mémoires des deux dernieres campagnes du Maréchal de Turenne en Alemagne, & de ce qui s'est passé depuis sa mort. Sous le commandement du Comte de Lorges

      A Paris, 1774. 4 vol. in 16° (170 x 105 mm), pp. n XII, 4 cc. geo. rip., 1 tav. rip.; 360, 8 cc. rip.; 463; 437, (3). Legatura cartonata con titolo, fregi e volume impressi in oro su tassello color arancio. Annotazioni d'epoca in lingua francese su alcune pagine del testo. Fregi ai frontespizi. Fregi e finalini decorativi a inizio e fine capitolo. Etichette d'inventario ai piatti superiori. Henri de La Tour d'Auvergne - Bouillon, visconte di Turenne, noto anche col soprannome di Grand Turenne (1611 ?" 1675), è stato un generale francese, Maresciallo di Francia sotto Luigi XIII e Luigi XIV. Partecipò durante la Guerra dei trent'anni alle battaglie di Friburgo (1644) e di Nördlingen (1645) insieme al Gran Condé. Dapprima vicino ai ribelli della Fronda nel 1648, si riconciliò con il Mazzarino e divenne il comandante delle armate reali.Nella Battaglia di Bléneau il 7 aprile 1652 sconfisse le truppe spagnole comandate dal Gran Condé, ottenendo così il perdono definitivo del re Luigi XIV. Nel 1658 sconfisse nuovamente gli spagnoli del Condé nella battaglia delle Dune presso Dunkerque. Nel 1660 fu nominato Maresciallo generale degli accampamenti e delle armate del re. Durante la Guerra d'Olanda fu battuto dalle truppe imperiali del Montecuccoli e fu obbligato a riattraversare il Reno nel 1673. Si prese tuttavia la rivincita nel giugno del 1674 con la Battaglia di Sinzheim, ove impedì il ricongiungimento delle due armate nemiche e devastò il Palatinato. Batté nuovamente le truppe imperiali in Alsazia nella Battaglia di Entzheim (ottobre del medesimo anno), ma di fronte alla sproporzione delle forze si ritirò su Saverne e Hagenau, consentendo ai tedeschi di acquartierarsi per l'inverno in Alsazia. Contrariamente agli usi militari del tempo non esitò ad attaccare in pieno inverno, il 27 dicembre era a Belfort ed il 29 entrò a Mulhouse. Le truppe imperiali si erano stabilite a Turckheim, in una valle dei Vosgi: la sua strategia consistette nel sorprendere il nemico attaccandolo dalla montagna. Egli salì sulla città di Thann, passò di fianco al castello di Engelburg (a quel tempo non ancora fatto distruggere da Luigi XIV) e stabilì il suo acquartieramento sul posto, ancor oggi noto come camp Turenne. Spinse poi le sue truppe lungo la cresta e giunse sopra il campo nemico il 5 gennaio 1675, scese a precipizio lungo la valle e prese il nemico di sorpresa: poche furono le vittime poiché quest'ultimo si diede alla fuga. Gli imperiali furono così costretti a battere in ritirata ed a ripassare sull'altra sponda del Reno. Luigi XIV gli riconfermò il comando nella campagna del 1675 nella quale si trovò nuovamente di fronte il suo vecchio avversario, il Montecuccoli. In due mesi dispiegarono entrambi le loro migliori manovre: alla Battaglia di Salzbach infine Turenne era sul punto di portare l'avversario sulle posizioni a lui più favorevoli quando venne colpito a morte da una cannonata. Il 1° e il 2° volume contengono le carte geografiche relative alle battaglie di Fribourg del 1644, di Mariendal del 1645 , Nordlinghen del 1645, Dunes del 1658, etc.

Opera illustrata da 33 magnifiche tavole f.t. finem. incise in rame e colorate a mano all'epoca, raffiguranti larve, crisalidi e farfalle, ed altri insetti, nel loro habitat, con ricchi fiori, frutti e piante. Seconda edizione, postuma, ampliata rispetto alla prima del 1740, che conteneva solo 25 tavole. Importante opera in cui l'artista ed entomologo olandese Jacob L'Admiral (Amsterdam 1700-1770) ha illustrato e descritto, tra l'altro, l'ecologia e la biologia di due rari insetti europei (S. ocellatus e L. populi), elencando inoltre le loro piante ospiti. L'Admiral fu per tutta la vita noto naturalista amatoriale; dopo la sua morte, l'editore Sluyter acquisì le lastre originali ed incaricò Martin Houttuyn di preparare una nuova edizione aumentata dell'opera, di notevole valore scientifico e soprattutto di straordinaria bellezza iconografica. "L'Admiral's work originally appeared in 1740 with twenty-five plates (an exact reprint appeared in 1762); this 1774 edition, the first complete, was published with an additional eight plates which had been given to Houttuyn by the artist".

        Letters Written by the Late Right Honourable Philip Dormer Stanhope, Earl of Chesterfield, to His Son, Philip Stanhope, Esq; Late Envoy Extraordinary at the Court of Dresden (2 Vols. + Supplement)

      Printed for J. Dodsley in Pall-Mall, London 1774 - A very handsome example of the 1774 1st edition, 1st issue ("quia uroit" on pg. 55, line 16) of Chesterfield's letters, complete in 2 volumes. And including the uncommon 1787 supplement. All 3 volumes uniform quartos, bound in a full contemporary calf and very skillfully rebacked, with raised bands and lovely gilt-titling and ornamentation at the compartments. Boards lightly-bumped at corners and additional very light surface wear, with minimal cracking. The binding is firm, the pages bright and quite clean and the set overall merits a solid VG+. These 395 letters were prepapred for publication by his widow, Lady Chesterfield, within a year of his death. When Lord Chesterfield's illegitimate son turned 5, the Earl began to write a series of letters of advice and wisdom to him. These letters were never intended for publication but when Lord Chesterfield died, his son's widow (his son had died at age 36) realized that his letters to her late husband were a valuable property. Both Edward Gibbon and Horace Walpole declined an invitation to edit the letters for publication. Shortly after their refusal, Mrs. Stanhope signed a contract with James Dodsley. He agreed to pay her 1,500 guineas for the right to publish the letters and immediately advertised in London newspapers (November 1773) that they would be "speedily published"; the forthcoing book was advertised for the following February and March (1774). Angry at Chesterfield's refusal to patronize his "Dictionary", Samuel Johnson censured the Letters for "teaching the morals of a whore, and the manners of a dancing master" but even he admitted that they "might be made a very pretty book. Take out the immorality, and it should be put into the hands of every young gentleman". (Rothschild 596; Gulick 2; Aresty p. 310; not in Heltzel {which lists a 20th century reprint}).

Un procès s'ensuit et les biens de Beaumarchais sont finalement saisis lorsqu'en 1773 il publie à propos des agissements du rapporteur à son procès, le juge Goëzman, quatre mémoires dont l'esprit et la dialectique ont un retentissement considérable et font condamner le juge, le 26 février 1774. « Ces mémoires singuliers sont encore le plus beau titre littéraire de leur auteur ; ils l'environnèrent d'une réputation bruyante qui alarma Voltaire lui-même, jaloux de toute espèce de gloire et lui concilièrent je ne sais quelle faveur publique, dont il tira plus de force que de considération, mais qui n'en préparèrent pa moins le succès de tous ses ouvrages » (Michaud).
