        Histoire des Plantes de la Guiane Francoise, rangees suivant la methode sexuelle, avec plusieurs memoires sur differens objects interessans, relatifs a la Culture & au Commerce de la Guiane Francoise ...

      1775. Londres/ Paris, P.F. Didot jeune, 1775. 4 volumes (2 text volumes & 2 volumes of plates). 4to (250 x 194mm). pp. (4), 32, 1-621; (3), 622-976, 52, 160, with engraved frontispiece and 392 fine engraved plates. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gilt floral ornamented spines, with 2 red and green labels, covers with gilt borderlines. A fine copy of the first flora of French Guiana, profusely illustrated with excellent plates. "Aublet's further words on the conditions under which a naturalist worked in the French possessions are almost identical to those of Adanson with respect to his Senegalese years; the scorn of the other settlers, the absence of chances of financial reward, the hard-boiled mercenary attitude of his 'colleagues'. In addition to that are the hardships of trying to botanize in the tropical jungle with its - at that time - almost unknown hazards. ... The 'Histoire' of 1775 is written, characteristically, in French and in Latin ... it is remarkable that Aublet's book is fully Linnaean both with respect to taxonomy (the sexual system and the generic delimitations) and to nomenclature. It contains the descriptions of not less than 400 new species ... it is still the basis for the study of the flora of the Guiana region" (Stafleu. Linnaeus and the Linnaeans, p. 283). "It is clear that Fusee Aublet should be considered one of the 'founding fathers' of neotropical ethnobotany. Although most botanists think of his 'Histoire des Plantes de la Guiane Francoise' as a taxonomic treatise, Aublet was in fact sent to French Guiana as an Apothecary-Botanist. His book describes uses of 124 species from 56 different families. That he employed many of the plants himself and that he used many of the vernacular names as the bases for his Latin names seems to indicate a high regard for the botanical sophistication of his indigenous colleagues" (Plotkin, Boom & Allison. The Ethnobotany of Aublet's 'Histoire des Plantes...' p. 2). A very few leaves with some minor old marginal paper repair. Titles with small old library stamp. Stafleu & Cowan 206; Nissen BBI, 54..

        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.

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.

        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 copy, worn along the joints, occasional soiled leaves, binding tight.
