        The Ogygia Vindicated: Against the Objections of Sir George Mac Kenzie, King's Advocate for Scotland in the Reign of King James II. (A Posthumous Work) by Roderic O'Flaherty, Esq. to which is annexed, An Epistle from John Lynch, D.D.to M.Boileau, the Historian of the University of Paris, on the Subject of Scottish Antiquities with a Dissertation on the Origin and Antiquities of the antient Scots and Notes, critical and explanatory on Mr.Flaherty's Text by C.O'Connor.

      Dublin, G.Faulkner, 1775.. 8°. LXXXII (2), 299 pages. Original edition from 1775 bound in Hardcover of the early 20th century. Besides some light browned edges in very good condition.. Extraordinary rare publication with local and general history of Ireland including biographical accounts from Alchuinus (Albinus) over Rabanus to discussions of John Majors "De Gestis Scotorum" we must think of it as on of the first historical-critical accounts of Irish history. Roderick O Flaherty (Irish name Ruaidhri O Flaithbheartaigh, Ruairi O Flaitheartaigh) (1629 - 1718 or 1716), was an Irish historian. He was born in County Galway and inherited Maigh Cuilinn (Moycullen) Castle and estate. O'Flaherty was the last de jure Lord of Iar Connacht, and the last recognized chief of the O'Flaherty clan. He lost the greater part of his ancestral estates to Cromwellian confiscations in the 1650s. The remainder was stolen through deception, by his son's father-in-law, Richard Nimble Dick Martin of Ross. Died in poverty at Park, near Bearna. Uniquely among the O Flaithbheartigh family up to that time, Ruaidhri became a highly regarded historian and collector of Irish manuscripts. His friends and associates included his teacher Dubhaltach MacFhirbhisigh; Daibhidh O Duibhgheannain; Dr. John Lynch; Edward Llyud; Samuel Moleneaux and his father William. His published works included Ogyia and Iar Connacht. He is perhaps most often associated with his elaborate History of Ireland, Ogygia, published in 1685 as Ogygia: seu Rerum Hibernicarum Chronologia & etc., in 1793 translated into English by Rev. James Hely, as "Ogygia, or a Chronological account of Irish Events (collected from Very Ancient Documents faithfully compared with each other & supported by the Genealogical & Chronological Aid of the Sacred and Profane Writings of the Globe" Ogygia is the island of Calypso, used by O'Flaherty as an allegory for Ireland. Drawing from numerous ancient documents, Ogygia traces Irish history back to the ages of mythology and legend, before the time of Christ. The book credits Milesius as the progenitor of the Goidelic people. O'Flaherty had included in his history what purported to be an essay on the understanding of the ancient Ogham alphabet. Based on the 1390 Auraicept na n-Eces, he stated that each letter was named after a tree, a concept widely accepted in 17th century Ireland. Ogygia was immediately criticised for its scholarship by Sir George Mackenzie of Rosehaugh (1636-91), Dean of Faculty (1682) at Aberdeen. The arguments about O'Flaherty's continued well into the 18th century, culminating in the 1775 The Ogygia Vindicated by the historian Charles O'Conor, in which he adds explanatory footnotes to the original work.

        HARTLEY'S THEORY OF THE HUMAN MIND, on the principle of the Association of Ideas; with essays relating to the subject of it

      London, J. Johnson, 1775.: . London, J. Johnson, 1775..

A very good copy of the first edition. See; Christies The Haskell F. Norman Library of Science and Medicine, Part II, Lot 734. Joseph Priestley (1733 –1804) was an English chemist, philosopher, dissenting clergyman, and educator. He made important contributions in the fields of education, moral philosophy, theology, metaphysics, political economy, history and science. He is known for his investigations of carbon dioxide and the co-discovery, with Antoine Lavoisier, of oxygen. As a young man at Daventry academy Priestley read David Hartley's Observations on Man (1749), a long psychological, philosophical and theological treatise that builds on the ideas of Locke and Isaac Newton. Later Priestley wrote that it was the book most responsible for opening his mind to new ideas and claimed that he learned more from this text than from any other, save the Bible. When Priestley was made aware of how few people were really familiar with Hartley's ideas, he took it upon himself to prepare a severely redacted edition of Observations on Man for the public which would contain some explanatory essays. It is this work, Hartley's Theory of the Human Mind that finally made Priestley's ideas regarding association popular. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

Philosophical Empiricism is a scarce work usually found separately. However in Crook's Bibliography of Priestley it was also bound at the end of the second edition of Volume I of Experiments and Observations on Different Kinds of Air; although he doesn't mention it, it is obvious from the pagination. The work was the author's defence against a charge that he plagiarized Dr. Bryan Higgins' experiments. It includes the correspondence with his accusers, Dr. Higgins and Dr. Richard Brocklesby, between Nov. 30 and Dec. 9, 1775. Volume I of Priestley's famous Experiments and Observations on Different Kinds of Air contains experiments on inflammable air conducted prior to 1772, and those on alkaline, nitrous and acid air conducted between 1773 and 1774. The Appendix includes a letter from Benjamin Franklin. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Calm Address to our American Colonies.

      London: Printed by R. Hawes, [1775].. 23 pp. Sm. 8vo. Later paper wrappers. First edition, later issue. Sabin 102647. Adams 75-155d. Baker B. The first half of this work was largely condensed from Samuel Johnson's 'Taxation No Tyranny' though without attribution, which left Wesley open to frequent harsh criticism until he acknowledged the debt in the preface to a later edition (Johnson, however, was flattered). According to Adams, who suggests this issue is a reprint of that issued by Pine the same year, Wesley wrote to Thomas Rankin "I suppose above forty thousand of them have been printed in three weeks, " and later, in 1777, wrote "within a few months, fifty or perhaps a hundred thousand copies, in newspapers and otherwise, were dispersed throughout Great Britain and Ireland." Though Wesley had been more sympathetic earlier to the Americans, in this work and in 'Some Observations on Liberty (1776)', "he condemned the Americans and portrayed them as allied with English radicals. This volte-face provoked charges of hypocrisy and plagiarism. The French alliance with the Americans aroused in Wesley a fear that this ?popish? power was conspiring with the Americans and radicals to ruin England, " ODNB/ 29069. A very good untrimmed copy, period ink annotations at head of title page, pinhole to lower corner, scattered foxing.

Spines worn at head and tail, 3 mm (3/16 of an inch) missing at head of Volume 1, small crack and tiny chip at head of lower hinge on Volume I, 4 pinholes in upper hinge on Volume I, couple of small splits and a pinhole to upper hinge on Volume II, a little pitting to leather on covers, lower corner to upper cover showing cardboard, the other corners slightly worn, front inner paper hinges cracked, binding still tight and firm, half-titles and title pages browned at edges, early ink library stamp on title pages, a few pages lightly age-browned, occasional small brown spots, small pale damp stain to a few margins, 1 plate slightly misfolded, protruding slightly from text block and slightly worn at fore-edge. A good copy of a scarce work in first edition. The French scientist Sigaud de la Fond (1730-1810) started his working life as a physician practising obstetrics. While studying for his medical degree he had attended the famous course of public lectures given by Abbe Nollet, who aroused in him such a lively interest in experimental science that he eventually gave up medicine and became first a tutor in philosophy and mathematics and then a demonstrator in experimental science at the College Louis-le-Grand. In 1760 he succeeded the Abbe Nollet in his chair at Louis-le-Grand teaching experimental science, anatomy and physiology. In 1770 Sigaud became a professor of surgery at the school of Saint-Come. In 1772 he returned to Bourges, where, after four years, he obtained a chair in physics at the local college. See Dictionary of Scientific Biography. The work is a description of the physical apparatus and processes used in experimental science in the second half of the 18th century. The interesting plates illustrate a large number of optical, electrical, meteorological and chemical apparatus and scientific instruments. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

A good copy of a scarce work in first edition. The French scientist Sigaud de la Fond (1730-1810) started his working life as a physician practising obstetrics. While studying for his medical degree he had attended the famous course of public lectures given by Abbe Nollet, who aroused in him such a lively interest in experimental science that he eventually gave up medicine and became first a tutor in philosophy and mathematics and then a demonstrator in experimental science at the College Louis-le-Grand. In 1760 he succeeded the Abbe Nollet in his chair at Louis-le-Grand teaching experimental science, anatomy and physiology. In 1770 Sigaud became a professor of surgery at the school of Saint-Come. In 1772 he returned to Bourges, where, after four years, he obtained a chair in physics at the local college. See Dictionary of Scientific Biography. The work is a description of the physical apparatus and processes used in experimental science in the second half of the 18th century. The interesting plates illustrate a large number of optical, electrical, meteorological and chemical apparatus and scientific instruments. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

      With the Invasion of Canada Cancelled, Gen. Schuyler Repays Funds He'd Received.& & Philip Schuyler was elected to the Continental Congress in 1775 and served until he was appointed one of the first four Major Generals of the Continental Army in June. General Schuyler took command of the Northern Department and planned the invasion of Canada that occurred in the winter of 1775-6. His poor health required him to place Richard Montgomery in command of that invasion, which was not successful. Afterwards, he was responsible for the defence of New York, and as department commanding general, was active in preparing against the British Saratoga Campaign in 1777.& & Document Signed, the text of which is in the hand of his aide, Richard Varick, who would later become mayor of the City of New York.

Richard Varick the Vouchers for Nineteen hundred & seventy three pounds eleven shillings & five pence New York Currency in specie paid by him on account of Monies borrowed during the last Winter for the public service in Canada & the sum of One Thousand & twenty six pounds Eight Shillings & seven pence New York Currency being the full Balance of Specie rec'd by him from the Paymaster Gen'l in Virtue of my Warrant of the first of July last."

      Folio Document Signed by Powell, dated 15 June 1775 in Frederick, Maryland. Powell signs an affidavit repudiating his previous claims that a dying young child had ordered his father to pay Powell twenty shillings and requesting his parents turn his sister over to Powell once she has come of age. In part: "To all People to whom it may concern... I... let fall from my mouth the most heinnious parger'd words... Declaring that 'Certain Moses Cool -- Son of John Cool -- who departed this life about sixteen or seventeen years ago at the age of eight or nine years...that he the said Moses Cool in time of sickness & on his Death bed did order his father John Cool to give me... the sum of twenty shillings & also requesting his father & mother that When Ever his sister Saria become of age to Give her to me in Mariage & farther declaring that I have often seen the gost of him the said Moses since his death & that I spoke with it concerning the above which I now have a true sence of this my great & miserable crime Do freely acknollege to be entirely falce..." Powell goes on to repudiate his testimony because of his fear of the abominable sin he has committed. Signed and witnessed by several enumerated in the document to whom Powell repeated his calumnies. Modest light wear, near fine. An early and unusual mention of ghostly testimony, albeit false, in early America. .

Mead's Greek manuscripts, the papers of Dr. Taylor and some fine early classical codices from the library of the Maffei family" (p. 52). Besson, in Thornton's Medical Books, Libraries and Collectors (p. 280) states that "rare manuscripts and choice editions in exquisite bindings abounded in [Askew's] library, and Askew has been credited with having made bibliomania fashionable. . . . After the death of Askew, the library was sold at an auction which lasted from 13 February to 7 March 1775. The catalogue of the collection was sold at one shilling and sixpence, with a few copies on royal [large] paper at four shillings . . . ."

        USE OF BEAUVAIS

      Northern France, perhaps Beauvais or Amiens, late, 1275. Hardcover. From a Manuscript Famed for its Beauty and Outstanding Condition. 286 x 197 mm (11 1/4 x 7 3/4"). Double column, the leaves with as many as 21 lines of text in an excellent formal gothic book hand, and always with at least one column containing 10 staves of music. Attractively matted. Rubrics in red, chant text containing black penwork initials with red and yellow geometric elaboration, BEAUTIFULLY ILLUMINATED with four two-line initials in blue or pink with white tracery with background in the contrasting color and with blue and pink extensions terminating in orange leaves, each initial accented with two burnished gold dots; recto featuring a three-line "L" in the same style with horizontal extension across the head edge, immediately below that initial an orange fish within a box five lines tall and 10 mm. wide; verso with a large (40 mm. square) and complex "G," the center filled with swirling vines bearing orange leaves, the whole highlighted with burnished gold in 15 places, a gray heron with a red head swallowing an eel perched on the upper left corner of the initial, and a tiny orange dog at the initial's lower left, topping an extension descending the length of the leaf and dividing into two in the lower border. Just barely trimmed at top, touching edge of decorations, otherwise IN SPLENDID CONDITION, remarkably clean, bright, and sparkling with gold. This sumptuously decorated leaf--which could hardly be more handsome or in a fresher, cleaner state--comes from the last volume of a three-volume Missal presented to Beauvais Cathedral by Canon Robert de Hangest (d. 1356). The Missal remained at the cathedral at least through the 17th century, when it is noted in an inventory, but was removed from the church at some point, likely in the aftermath of the French Revolution. The parent volume of our leaves eventually entered the collection of Henri-Auguste Brölemann (1775-1854) of Lyon. It passed to his grand-daughter Etienne Mallet, who sold it at Sotheby's in 1926. Sometime in the next two decades it was acquired by Otto Ege, doubtless the person responsible for breaking up the book, as leaves from it are featured in his portfolios of "Original Leaves from Medieval Manuscripts." Other leaves from the volume are in the collections of the Morgan Library, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Houghton Library at Harvard. The text here is the end of a Mass for Saint Margaret (July 20), the complete Mass (July 21) for Saint Praxedes (an early martyr of Rome), and the beginning of a Mass for Saint Mary Magdalene (July 22). Although there is some dispute in the matter, the illumination has been tentatively attributed to the artist of the Hours of Yolande of Soissons, produced in Amiens ca. 1280 and now held by the Morgan Library (MS M.729). It is worth noting that the town of Hangest, where the original owner came from, is only 10 miles from Amiens, and is a likely place of origin for the Missal. Beauvais Missal leaves appear only infrequently on the market, and it is uncommonly lucky to find one in such exceptional condition.

        Course of the River Mississippi from the Balise to Fort Chartres; Taken on an expedition to the Illinois, in the later end of Year 1765

      London: Rob Sater, 1775. Map. Hand-colored engraving on two sheets. Image measures 44 1/4 x 14 1/4". Ross's map of the Mississippi is widely regarded as the finest and most detailed map of the river made in the 18th century. Utilizing surveys of the river which the French conducted, Ross synthesized them into a sizable and thorough depiction of the River, and in fact, the first official survey of its lower portion. The map extends from the area of present-day St. Louis down to Fort Balise on the Gulf of Mexico. Descriptive notes provide information on river depth and the surrounding areas and elevations. Surrounding tributaries, rivers, cities, Indian villages and forts are all labeled. Notes from early expeditions as far back as the 16th century are also included. This map is the second edition of the map and is in very good condition, with slight scattered foxing and off-setting. This map is a crisp and lovely representation of the country's most impressive river.

        Idylle

      [Paris], no date [1775]. 4to (26.9 cm, 10.6"). Part 2 only of 2. 8 pp. The first edition of the => first work published by M. Arnaud Berquin (1747–91), this => entirely engraved dialogue between Lamon, Lysis, and "La femme" was issued together with the Pygmalion, scène lyrique, which Berquin translated into verse from the original by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. As in the instance of a copy at Texas A&M University, the Idylle in hand has been separately bound — in our copy's case finely bound, well highlighting the vignette and tailpiece engraved by Charles-Étienne Gaucher (1740–1804) after Clément Pierre Marillier (1740–1808), and the text engraved in an attractive italic "hand" by Droüet. The two-part text was not reprinted until 1883, by J. Lemonnyer in an edition of 525 copies. Binding: Fine olive brown morocco gilt, ca. 1910 and very much expressing that era's style. Each board double-ruled in gilt and finely framed with a canopy of elegant gilt garlands, title gilt at center of front cover. Spine gilt extra from top to bottom in a leafy vine pattern. Board edges single-ruled in gilt, turn-ins double-ruled in gilt with a rule of delicate gilt beads between, french combed marbled endpapers in an exceptionally pretty and precise pattern. Cioranescu 11517. Bound as above, second part only of two, separately; binding a little rubbed (only) at joints, edges, and one corner of front cover. Paper chosen for blank endpapers unevenly bleached, in production, to now-spotty but not unpleasant effect; text with a little age-toning at upper edges and some light dust-soiling at deckle edges. => A bibliophile's pleasure.

IV/1, 264, e (alpha). - Zuerst im Hannoverschen Magazin, daraus mit einer Vorrede von J. G. Zimmermann abgedruckt. Die erste öffentliche und nicht schmeichelhafte Replik zu Lavaters Physiognomischen Fragmenten. - Der Geheime Kanzleisekretär Friedrick Arnold Klockenbring (1742-1795) ging in die Geschichte der Homöopathie als erster großer psychiatrischer Fall Samuel Hahnemanns ein: Der an einer manischen Psychose erkrankte Staatsbeamte wurde 1792 in einer Klinik in Georgenthal bei Gotha mit wiederholten materiellen Dosen von Stramonium behandelt. Im Frühjahr 1793 entließ Hahnemann Klockenbring als geheilt, musste danach allerdings seine Anstalt mangels weiterer Patienten schließen. In seinem Artikel "Striche zur Schilderung Klockenbrings während seines Trübsinns", veröffentlicht in der "Deutschen Monatsschrift" 1796, berichtet Hahnemann über seinen psychotherapeutischen Versuch. - Tatsächlich war bei Klockenbring allerdings keine Heilung eingetreten, die letzten zwei Jahre seines Lebens verbrachte er apathisch in seinem Hause, ab und zu unterbrochen von Ausbrüchen von Verfolgungswahn. Die Schilderung seines Todes ("unter Krämpfen") lässt an einen epileptischen Anfall denken. - Die Decken mit wenigen kleinen Wurmlöchern. Titel gebräunt.

ALCUNE LIEVI RIFIORITURE IN POCHE PAGINE DI TESTO, MA BELL' ESEMPLARE ABBONDANTE DI MARGINI NEL SUO STATO ORIGINALE DI CONSERVAZIONE. PRIMA EDIZIONE DELL' OPERA MEDICA PIÙ BELLA E PIÙ RARA USCITA DAI TORCHI DELLA CELEBRE OFFICINA BODONIANA. SCONOSCIUTA AL DE LAMA E AL BROOKS. "THE WORK BELONGS TO THE BEST OF ITS TIME (AS HALLER RECOGNIZED, II, 715), NOT ONLY AS REGARDS THE DISSECTIONS AND ILLUSTRATIONS, BUT ALSO AS TO THE VERY ELABORATE COMMENTARY. THE PICTURES DEAL WITH THE FACIAL MUSCLES, THE BASE OF THE BRAIN AND OTHER PARTS OF THE BRAIN, THE ORGANS OF SMELL AND HEARING, THE PHARYNX, THE BREAST, THE HEART, THE DIAPHRAGM WITH THE BEGINNING OF THE THORACIC DUCT, THE STOMACH, THE LIVER, THE INTESTINES, THE PANCREAS, THE ILEOCECAL VALVE, THE BLADDER, THE MUSCLES OF THE PERINEUM, AND THE GENITALS. COVOLI'S PICTURES REPRESENT THE BREASTS, THE TUNICS OF THE TESTICLE AND A SIX MONTHS' FETUS... THE FIRST SEVENTEEN PLATES WERE BY SANTORINI; TWO OF THE LAST FOUR PLATES BELONGED TO THE ANATOMIST GIOVANNI BATTISTA COVOLI... THE OTHER TWO BELONGED TO THE EDITOR, MICHELE GIRARDI (1731-1797), A PROFESSOR OF ANATOMY IN PARMA, WHO WROTE A COMMENTARY FOR SANTORINI'S PLATES... AL THE TWENTY-ONE PRINTS OF THE WORK ARE DONE IN A LIGHT CRAYON EFFECT WHICH, HOWEVER, DOES NOT IMPAIR THE ANATOMIC CLARITY OF THE PRINTS, BUT EVEN BRINGS OUT WELL THE DIFFERENCES IN THE TISSUES. EACH PLATE IS ACCOMPANIED BY AN OUTLINE PLATE WHICH IS MARKED WITH REFERENCE LETTERS. THE SEVENTEEN PLATES BY SANTORINI HAVE A RULED MARGIN AT THE TOP AND ON THE SIDE, BUT HAVE NO SIGNATURES OF THE ARTISTS. THEY WERE DRAWN BY GIOVANNI BATTISTA PIAZZETTA (1682-1754), WHO MADE THE COPPERS FOR TASSO'S GERUSALEMME LIBERATA, VENEZIA, 1754..." (CHOULANT & FRANK, HISTORY AND BIBLIOGRAPHY OF ANATOMIC ILLUSTRATION, PP. 262-64). "SANTORINI DIED BEFORE THE COMPLETION OF THESE ANATOMICAL PLATES WHICH HE INTENDED TO BE HIS CHEF D' OEUVRE.

        The Elements of botany:

      opposite Catharine-Street in the Strand and near Temple-Bar. London.: T Cadell and M Hingeston, 1775 In modern quarter calf with buckram, by Paul Delrue. Spine, raised bands, attractive gilt tooling, titles in gilt to red leather label. Internally, new endpapers, contemp. leaf tipped onto fpd, LACKS title page, (iii-xii), 472 pp, 14 pls, this includes the 3 copper plates by Hugh Rose on some plants found in Norfolk and Suffiolk, printed by William Bowyer and John Nichols, spine mistakenly indicates 1750 rather than 1775, plates a little grubby. (ESTC T113524.Henrey, 974)Full title: The elements of botany: containing the history of the science: with accurate definitions of all the terms of art, exemplified in eleven copper-plates; the theory of vegetables; the scientific arrangement of plants, and names used in botany; rules concerning the general history, virtues, and uses of plants. Being a translation of the Philosophia botanica, and other treatises of the celebrated Linnaeus. To which is added, an appendix, wherein are described some plants lately found in Norfolk and Suffolk, illustrated with three additional copper-plates, all taken from the life, by Hugh Rose. Linnaeus, Carl [later Carl von Linné], naturalist and taxonomist who in 1744 wrote in his autobiography that he had achieved his desires. He continued to publish prolifically but increasingly suffered from brooding despair, despite the increasing international fame which followed publication of the Species plantarum of 1753, now recognized as the starting point of modern botanical nomenclature, and the tenth edition in 1758 of the Systema naturae, which is the equivalent for zoological nomenclature. Today's international codes which govern the use of scientific names for all living organisms recognize Linnaeus as the starting point of modern taxonomy: about 12,000 of these names have the abbreviation ‘L’ appended to them, indicating their origin in a published Linnaean description. see ODNB.

        TO THE PEOPLE OF GREAT BRITAIN FROM THE DELEGATES APPOINTED BY THE SEVERAL ENGLISH COLONIES...TO CONSIDER OF THEIR GRIEVANCES IN GENERAL CONGRESS AT PHILADELPHIA, SEPTEMBER 5th, 1774

      London. 1775.. 16pp. Folded sheets, stitched. From the library of James Copley. Very good. In a half morocco box. This pamphlet marks one of the critical moments in the American Revolution, the final resolution of the First Continental Congress, passed on October 21, 1774, the day the Congress dissolved. In it, the delegates of the Congress seek to rally support from the British public, stating the colonial reasons for the discord with Great Britain, especially the Intolerable Acts passed from March to June, 1774. The resolution appeals to public sentiment in England to support the American cause. It represents one of the last efforts to appeal for a peaceful solution before open war began the following spring. The First Continental Congress adjourned on October 26, 1774, having ordered the Philadelphia edition printed (only one copy is known of this printing). The text reached England in the latter part of December, and given its importance, was probably printed almost immediately. The resolution appeals to the public, saying, "You have been told that we are seditious, impatient of government, and desirous of independancy. Be assured that these are not facts, but calumnies. Permit us to be as free as yourselves, and we shall ever esteem a union with you to be our greatest glory and our greatest happiness, we shall ever be ready to contribute all in our power to the welfare of the Empire." The letter later appeared in the EXTRACTS OF THE VOTES AND PROCEEDINGS.... of the First Continental Congress as well as in their JOURNAL. ESTC T136331. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 74-86b. SABIN 95960.

        De la Connoissance de l’Homme, dans son Être et dans ses Rapports.

      A Paris, chez Lacombe, 1775. - 2 forts volumes in-8. VIII. (le faux-titre manque). CLX. 571pp. et VIII. 693pp. 1f. Demi-basane, dos lisses ornés (reliure un peu postérieure). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage philosophique du jésuite Jean-Baptiste-Claude Joannet (1716-1789), auteur de plusieurs ouvrages dont, outre celui décrit ici, "Les bêtes mieux connues " (1770). Dans le Discours préliminaire, fort copieux, l'auteur expose tout d'abord pourquoi la connaissance de l'homme est une chose essentielle. Il cherche à démontrer que l'ignorance de son être entraîne l'homme à des écarts, alors qu'une meilleure connaissance apporterait une meilleure maîtrise de l'homme par lui-même, que ce soit au niveau de son corps, de son esprit et de sa volonté. Dans le corps de l'ouvrage, il examine ensuite la constitution de l'âme humaine, ses sensations, ainsi que l'organisation du corps et ses sensations également. "L'Abbé Joannet rejoint le mysticisme hédoniste en y imprimant les accents de Rousseau: il célèbre la jouissance de soi, l'émotion du sens intime qui gît dans la connaissance authentique de sa nature" (Ph. Lefebvre, "Les Pouvoirs de la Parole. L'Eglise et Rousseau, 1762-1848). Page de titre du second volume doublée anciennement en raison d’une déchirure. Assez bon exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition]
