        TRATADO DE HYDRODYNAMICA POR M. BOSSUT

      - DA ACADEMIA REAL DAS SCIENCIAS de Parîs, Examinador dos Ingenheiros &c. &c. TRADUZIDO E ABREVIADO do Francez. [Por?] COIMBRA NA REAL OFFICINA DA UNIVERSIDADE. M.DCC.LXXV. (1775] In 8.º 20x13 cm. com xv, 320 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele com nervos e ferros a ouro na lombada. Cortes das folhas carminados. Ilustrado com xiv gravuras desdobráveis com representação de experiências e de aparelhos científicos. Gravura com as armas reais portuguesas (D. José) na folha de rosto. Obra publicada à luz da reforma pombalina da universidade de Coimbra e dos estudos em Portugal. Nas folhas iniciais constam um privilégio régio e respetivo alvará assinado pelo próprio marquês de Pombal, retirando ao colégio dos Nobres as faculdades do ensino dos estudos e da impressão dos livros clássicos matemáticos, transferindo as mesmas em exclusivo para a Universidade de Coimbra. Obra rara. Primeira edição, desconhecida por Inocêncio que apenas refere edições oitocentistas. Inocêncio V, 75. ?José Monteiro da Rocha, do Conselho de Sua Majestade, Comendador da Ordem de Cristo, Cónego magistral da Sé de Leiria; primeiro Lente jubilado da Faculdade de Matemática, Director do Observatório astronómico, e Vice reitor da Universidade de Coimbra; Mestre do Príncipe da Beira; Socio e Director de classe da Academia Real das Ciências de Lisboa, etc. etc. - Nasceu em Canavezes, vila situada na margem direita do Tâmega, próxima de Amarante, a em 1734. Diz-se que sendo levado ainda na infância para o Brasil, cursára os estudos no colégio dos Jesuítas da Baía; que ali professára o instituto de Santo Inácio; e que por ocasião da expulsão destes regulares em 1759 ele preferira abandonar os seus consócios, deixando se ficar na mesma cidade, onde o governador que então era o encarregára da educação de seus filhos. Outros pretendem que, tendo entrado na ordem em Portugal, só depois da expulsão dela fosse parar á Bahia, d"onde voltou para o reino ao fim de alguns anos. Conta se como certo, que no tempo em que o Marquês de Pombal projectava a reforma da Universidade, o mandára chamar, em razão das informações que obtivera da sua capacidade e Ciência, achando se ele ainda então no Brasil, segundo uns e conforme outros em Coimbra, já de volta da Baía. Parece que não fôra sem grande receio que o ex-jesuíta comparecêra perante o ministro, o qual recebendo o com afabilidade lhe perguntou: «Qual das cadeiras da Universidade se julgava apto para reger?» - A isto respondeu modestamente o interrogado: «Aquela que os mais não quiserem.» Então o marquês, batendo lhe amigavelmente com a mão no ombro, lhe disse: «Sossegue, que há-de ser empregado!» Tratando-se para logo da reforma, foi-lhe incumbida, e por ele organizada e redigida a parte dos novos Estatutos da Universidade que diz respeito ás Ciências Naturais, e á Matemática. Traduziu e preparou depois alguns compêndios para uso das aulas respectivas, como abaixo se dirá. A sua fama de matemático insigne não ficou concentrada nos domínios portugueses; espalhou-se pela Europa, onde o seu nome é conhecido e mencionado com honra. D. João VI, quando príncipe regente, o chamou para a côrte, nomeando o Mestre do príncipe D. Pedro, e mais infantes, cargo que desempenhou até à saída da família real para o Brasil em 1807. Tendo comprado uma quinta no sítio de S. José de Ribamar, próximo de Lisboa, ali viveu. José Monteiro da Rocha legou por morte á Academia das Ciências todos os seus manuscritos, os quais foram mandados entregar a esta corporação pela Secretaria dos Negócios do Reino, contidos em um caixote, a cuja abertura se procedeu em o 1.° de Março de 1825. Tive ocasião de examinar o inventário que deles se formou, e que existe ainda arquivado na Academia. Versam pela maior parte sobre assumptos próprios das Ciências matemáticas, principalmente da astronomia, havendo entre eles várias memórias incompletas. Foi-lhe mandado conferir o grau de doutor por portarias do Marquês de Pombal, de 3 e 7 de Outubro de 1772.? Location/local

        MALAYSIA (PENANG – MALACCA) / INDONESIA (SUMATRA): CARTE PLATE DE LA PARTIE SEPTENTRIONALE DU DETROIT DE MALAC, DEPUIS LA RADE D'ACHEM JUSQU'A MALAC.

      Paris: Chez Demonville 1775 - Copper engraving (Good, strong dark engraving impression, discreet 8 cm repaired tear in blank field to the left of the word ‘Sumatra’ (seemingly due to natural paper flaw), minor professional restoration to blank margin at lower right corner outside of printed area, some areas of very light toning), 51 x 71.5 cm (20 x 28 inches). A fine example of J.-B. D’Après de Mannevillette’s scarce large-format sea chart of the Northern Straits of Malacca, including Penang and Malacca (Malaysia) and northern Sumatra (Indonesia), one of the most historically important charts of this key transport corridor. This attractive and fascinating map is one of the great historical sea charts of the Northern parts of the Straits of Malacca, long one of the world’s greatest maritime transport corridors. A scarce map, it was drafted by the great French hydrographer Jean-Baptiste D’Après de Mannevillette, and published within his sea atlas Le Neptune Oriental (1775). The chart’s coverage extends, on the Malaysian side, from just north of ‘Lancavy’ (Langkawi), down past ‘Penam’ (Penang) and south as far as Malacca; while on the Indonesian side it extends from ‘Achem’ (Acheh) in the north down to cover a third of the east coast of Sumatra. The seas are traversed by rhumb lines, while numerous bathymetric soundings and navigational hazards are marked. The chart is impressively accurate and was considered to be the best maritime map of the region of its time. While the shores are well delineated and the approaches to the main harbours are well understood, some of the places just inland from the shorelines still remained near complete enigmas to Europeans. For example, the area just east-southeast of Aceh features the annotation ‘Cette Cote est peu fréquente et très Acore’. J.-B. D' Après de Mannevillette: Great French Hydrographer - Jean-Baptiste D’Après de Mannevillette (1707 - 1780) was one of the most important hydrographers of the Enlightenment Era. He hailed from a minor, but well-connected, noble family and as a teenager apprenticed under the French Royal cartographer Guillaume De L’Isle. In 1728, he joined the Compagnie des Indes and travelled to China. During the voyage, he conducted astronomical observations that were radically better than those of his predecessors, and he corrected the geodetic coordinates of numerous places. D’Après de Mannevillette was horrified by the severe inaccuracies that appeared upon many of the key charts that the French government and trading companies relied upon. Upon his return to France, he embarked upon a mega-project to completely redraw all of the key French charts for the Indian Ocean and Asian navigation, including the route to China, the Red Sea, the coasts of India, Malaya, the northern parts of Indonesia, Indochina and China. He painstaking poured through the best sources, both French and foreign, and did an admirable job sorting the wheat from the chaff. D' Après de Mannevillette published his charts within a sea atlas entitled Le Neptune Oriental (Paris, 1745), which consisted 22 charts. The publication received rave reviews, as the excellent charts were highly valued for making practical navigation much easier and, in some cases, were even credited with saving lives. This led to his appointment to lead the new hydrographic office of the Compagnie des Indes called the Dépôt des Cartes et Plans de la Navigation des Indes. D' Après de Mannevillette then embarked on a three decade project to correct and greatly expand his atlas. The new editions of the Le Neptune Oriental, including the present chart, was issued in 1775. It included 67 charts were exquisitely engraved by the master Guillaume De la Haye. D' Après de Mannevillette’s charts were imbued with great authority and many were copied in other countries, with some being considered the charts of recorded as late as the 1840s. The original manuscript on which the present chart is based is today preserved in the British Library (Shirley, Maps in the Atla

        Veterum collatio numismatum, cum his, quae modo expendutur publica, & Regia auctoritate percussa

      Valentiae Edetanorum, Josephi Estevan et Cervera 1775 - 8º mayor (20,4 x 14,7 cm). VIII-367 p. Grabado en portada, viñeta, culs de lamp y capitulares en madera. Texto latín y castellano. Pergamino de época. Diego de Covarrubias fue una de las grandes figuras del humanismo español y del pensamiento jurídico europeo del siglo XVI, además de un hombre de estado y un bibliófilo. Ocupó cargos de relevancia en la Corte de Felipe II. La primera edición de su Veterum collatio numismatum vio la luz en 1556. La presente edición corrió a cargo de Berni y Catalá. “El Veterum collatio es un escrito muy representativo de las teorías económicas promulgadas por la llamada Escuela de Salamanca. En efecto, no se trata propiamente de una obra numismática sino de un tratado sobre economía. Su punto de partida es la devaluación del maravedí castellano, analizando la autoridad del gobernante para efectuar o no esas devaluaciones, y su herramienta, la estadística con la evolución de los precios. En su análisis recurre como elemento de comparación y continuo referente sobre todo a la moneda romana, pero también a la indígena hispana y la visigoda, estableciendo sus equivalencias con la castellana. El resultado revela su buen conocimiento de la amonedación antigua, descrita en sus aspectos más significativos desde el punto de vista económico: metales, pesos y valores. Como reflejo de las dos situaciones históricas contrapuestas, en una obra escrita básicamente en latín emplea el castellano en los capítulos V y VI con el estudio sobre el maravedí. El texto no llega a desarrollar una teoría monetaria completamente articulada, pero avanza los principios de la teoría cuantitativa del dinero que desarrollarán otros integrantes de la Escuela de Salamanca. Este interés por los estudios económicos aparece como una peculiaridad de la Numismática española del XVI por contraste con la europea, mucho más preocupada por los problemas iconográficos salvo escasas excepciones, lo cual se explica en una situación histórica que conjuga por una parte la expansión imperial, con el Imperio Romano como referente propagandístico, y por otra la inestabilidad económica y particularmente monetaria debido a las políticas de Carlos V y Felipe II y sus prácticas financieras.” [Mercedes Oria Segura, La Antigüedad en el Fondo Antiguo de la Universidad de Sevilla] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Édition originale imprimée par Bodoni, de cet ambitieux projet pédagogique, didactique, historique et philosophique de l?abbé de Condillac, destiné à l?éducation de l?Infant Ferdinand, fils du duc de Parme dont il fut le précepteur.

        A SERMON PREACHED BEFORE THE HONORABLE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, ON THE DAY INTENDED FOR THE CHOICE OF COUNSELLORS, AGREEABLE TO THE ADVICE OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS.

      Watertown, Ma. 1775. - 29pp. Half title. Contemporary ownership inscription on front wrapper. Somewhat tanned, scattered foxing. Very good. William Gordon, later one of the first American historians of the Revolution, reflects on the situation of the Continental Congress in a sermon before the General Court of the Massachusetts Provincial Congress on July 19, 1775. Gordon himself was, "a vigorous partisan of independence and in 1775 was made chaplain to both houses of the Provincial Congress assembled at Watertown. Congress possessed great confidence in him and voted him a good horse and access to the prisoners of war." Of the forthcoming conflict, Gordon says in his address: "He who does not mean to bear a part in the public burdens of the day, but to escape wholly unhurt in property and person is no patriot; while he that, instead of serving, designs only to serve himself of the public, to acquire riches and raise a fortune out of the general calamity, must be really the worst of men, cannot deserve the protection of the state, and when discover'd must be detested by every true son and daughter of liberty, as being a most odious character."

        An account of Sir Isaac Newton's philosophical discoveries

      Unknown 1775 - Clean hardback tightly bound in brown calf with gilt titles on a red spine panel, 7 raised spine bands, a recent professional rebind with the original boards retained inc. gilt dentelles, corners neatly repaired, new endpapers, but retaining original owner's inscription (given to Fanny Winfield on Christmas day 1775, when she was 11!) on the front pastedown, and a different name on the dedication page, otherwise no inscriptions. The first three original leaves are missing (endpaper, half-title & title) so it starts with the dedication page, else all in excellent condition, including the six foldout plates. [vi of x] + xxvi + 412 pages, six plates, long introductory essay 'An account of the life and writings of the author'. As the title page is missing we are not 100% sure that this is the third (1775) edition; it may possibly be the second edition of 1750 - the pagination is the same for both. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Inquiry into the Principles of the Distribution of Wealth most conducive to Human Happiness. A New Edition by William Pare.

      Octavo. XXXII, 463 pages. Hardcover (contemporary, blindstamped publisher's cloth covered boards). The corners stronger bumped but this extremely rare volume in overall good to very good- condition with some clear signs of external wear. This second edition of special interest because of the editor William Pare's lengthy preface in which he talks about Thompson's philosophy, biography and his early decision to turn vegetarian and teetotal. William Thompson (1775 28 March 1833) was an Irish political and philosophical writer and social reformer, developing from utilitarianism into an early critic of capitalist exploitation whose ideas influenced the Cooperative, Trade Union and Chartist movements as well as Karl Marx. Born into the Anglo-Irish Ascendancy of wealthy landowners and merchants of Cork society, his attempt to will his estate to the cooperative movement after his death sparked a long court case as his family fought successfully to have the will annulled. According to E. T. Craig, this decision to will his estate to the cooperative movement was taken after a visit to the pioneering Ralahine Commune. Born in Cork, William was the son and heir of one of the most prosperous merchants of that city, Alderman John Thompson, who held, amongst other offices, that of Mayor in 1794. William inherited the small trading fleet and landed estate near Glandore, West Cork after his father's death in 1814. Rejecting the role of absentee landlord commonly led by those of a similar situation, William based his living quarters on the estate and despite many travels, invested much time with the tenants on the estate introducing agricultural innovations, services and education for children aimed at improving the welfare and prosperity of the families present. Victim of weak health from an early age, Thompson became a non-smoker, teetotaller and vegetarian for the last 13 years of his life. These abstemious habits, he explained helped him in concentrating on his reading and writing. Nonetheless, by the 1830s he was suffering from a chest affliction that finally killed him on 28 March 1833. He had never married and left no direct heir. An enthusiastic student of the writers and ideas of the Enlightenment, particularly Condorcet, Thompson became a convinced egalitarian and democrat. His support for the French Revolution earned him the label of "Red Republican" from Cork society and his support for advocates of Catholic emancipation in elections further alienated him from the rest of his wealthy Protestant kith and kin. Thompson was greatly impressed by the utilitarianism of Jeremy Bentham with whom he corresponded and established a friendship, later staying at the English philosopher's house for several months in 182122 while visiting London. As well as Bentham, Thompson read and corresponded with other utilitarian contemporaries such as James Mill and was influenced, both positively and negatively, by William Godwin and Thomas Malthus. His desire to overcome the limitations of Godwin's "intellectual speculations" and Malthus's "mechanical speculations" led him to propose a new synthesis: social science Thompson was the first to introduce this term would combine political economy's concern with scientific materialism with utilitarianism's concern with rational morality. It was the contrasting ideas of Godwin and Malthus that spurred Thompson into the project of research into the role of distribution in political economy that led him to London and, in 1824, the publication of "An Inquiry into the Principles of the Distribution of Wealth most conducive to Human Happiness" . Thompson had also become acquainted with the work of the French utopian socialists including Charles Fourier, Henri Saint-Simon and the economist Sismondi. In the Inquiry, Thompson follows the line of the labour theory of value put forward by Adam Smith. However he characterises the appropriation of the lion's share of surplus value by the capitalist owner of the tools of production as exploitation. He rejects the Malthus/Mill proposition that any increase in the wage of the workers can only result in their further immiseration, noting the self-serving nature of this theory for capitalists pressing for legislation to outlaw workers efforts to raise their wages. By applying the utilitarian principle of "the greatest good for the greatest number" to the existing and possible alternative schemes of distribution, Thompson comes down on the side of an egalitarian distribution of the product. One of Thompson's colleagues in the Cooperative movement, John Minter Morgan, made the observation that he was the first to coin the term competitive to describe the existing economic system. The case for the originality of this work is further made by Max Nettlau who states: "[Thompson's] book, however, discloses his own evolution having started with a demand for the full product of labour as well as the regulation of distribution, he ended up with his own conversion to communism, that is, unlimited distribution." In 1827 fellow "Ricardian socialist" Thomas Hodgskin published Labour Defended which also characterised the appropriation of the lion's share of the fruits of production by landlord and capitalist as exploitation defrauding the worker of the full product of their labour. However, Hodgskin proposed that the road to economic justice for the labourer was through a reformed competitive system. Thompson replied with Labor Rewarded defending cooperative communism against Hodgskin's unequal wages. Although he rejected the political and economic implications of Malthus' essay on population, Thompson recognised that, particularly in Ireland, unrestrained population growth did pose the threat of rising poverty. As such he was like Bentham and Francis Place an advocate of the benefits of contraception. Thompson's development of a critique of the contemporary status of women was most strongly influenced by his long-term close friendship with Anna Wheeler. He had met Wheeler while staying with Bentham and they moved in those utilitarian circles that included James Mill. It was the publication of the latter's "On Government" which called for the vote for men only, that aroused the fervent opposition of both Wheeler and Thompson and to the rebuttal in Appeal of One Half the Human Race... Thompson and others of the Cooperative movement have tended to be somewhat unfairly subsumed under the political label of Owenism. In fact, although his writings and social experiments at New Lanark had helped to bring the cooperative movement together, many, Thompson included, were critical of Owen's authoritarian and anti-democratic tendencies. Thompson further distrusted Owen's courtship of rich and powerful patrons, believing that the rich as a class could be never be expected to be in favour of any project of emancipation for the labouring poor as this would threaten their privilege. He also believed in the necessity of the workers in any co-operative community having eventual security of ownership of the community's land and capital property. He gained a considerable following within the cooperative movement for these positions and it was to distinguish themselves from Owen's positions that this wing of the movement began to adopt the label of "socialist or communionist" (Letter to "The Cooperative Magazine", London, November 1827, cited by OED as first documented use of socialist) rather than "Owenist". These differences led to open confrontation between Thompson and Owen at the Third Cooperative Congress held in 1832 in London. Owen, perhaps discouraged by the failure of his attempted community at New Harmony, maintained that it was necessary to wait for Government and Stock Exchange support and investment into large scale communities. Thompson and his supporters contended that they must move towards establishing independent small scale communities based on the movement's own resources. The argument was not resolved at that congress and by the following one Thompson was unable to attend probably as a result of the illness that was to lead to his death in another five months. Karl Marx had come across Thompson's work on a visit to Manchester in 1845 and cites it in passing in The Poverty of Philosophy (1847) and also in Capital itself. However the same can be said of other of the proto-socialist political economists such as Thomas Hodgskin, John Gray, John Francis Bray. It seems surprising then, that the likes of Beatrice and Sidney Webb would characterise Marx as "the illustrious disciple" of Thompson and Hodgskin. Sentiments also echoed by the likes of Harold Laski and other British historians of socialism. In this they were accepting the earlier thesis in Anton Menger's Right to the Whole Produce of Labour (1899), amalgamating all the aforementioned into a homogeneous category of Ricardian socialists which obscured the important differences between Thompson's communist critique of Hodgskin's "market libertarian" position. (Wikipedia) ______________________ PARE, WILLIAM (1805-1873), co-operator, son of John Pare, cabinet-maker and upholsterer, of Birmingham, was born there in 1805. He was apprenticed to his father, but became a reporter. He subsequently engaged in business as a tobacco and cigar retailer in New Street, Birmingham. Early in life he helped to found a mechanics' institution in that town, and joined the small group of men who were trying to obtain a reform in the parliamentary representation. He also took part in the agitation for the repeal of the test and corporation acts, and for Roman catholic emancipation. On the formation of the 'Political Union in 1830' he became a member of the council, when he advocated extension of the suffrage, shorter parliaments, and vote by ballot. On 7 Aug. 1832 he drafted and moved in the parish church three resolutions against the payment of church rates. The petition, then adopted and sent by him to Hume, was the last presented to the unreformed House of Commons. When the 'Reformers' Registration Society' was established in 1835, Pare became secretary. He was the first registrar of Birmingham under the act legalising civil marriages (6 and 7 Will. iv. c. 85). As a member of the charter committee appointed in 1837, he actively promoted the incorporation of the town, and was a member of the first town council. Meanwhile Pare had become widely known as an able disciple of Robert Owen [q. v.] Converted to his teaching by William Thompson of Cork, Pare was one of the founders in 1828 of the first Birmingham co-operative society, at the anniversary of which he presided on 28 Dec. 1829. In the following year he attracted notice by the lectures he gave in support of co-operation at Liverpool, Manchester, Bolton, Chester, and other places. From May 1830, when the first co-operative congress was held at Manchester, until 1838, he constantly attended the congresses as one of the secretaries. From 1832 he advocated the establishment of labour exchanges, and mainly through his efforts the one at Birmingham had some success. He was one of the trustees of the property bequeathed for co-operative purposes by William Thompson of Cork in 1833 and when the heirs-at-law instituted an action in the Irish court of chancery, he went to Ireland to watch over the interests of the trustees, lecturing at various co-operative centres on the way. He was vice-president of Owen's society, 'The Association of all Classes of all Nations,' of which the central board was established at Birmingham. He continued an active member of the board until its removal to London in 1840. Forced to resign his registrarship in consequence of his socialistic opinions, he left Birmingham in November 1842, when he was presented with a public testimonial. From 1842 to 1844 he was acting-governor of Owen's community at Queenwood, Hampshire. He removed to London in 1844, and as a railway statist he was frequently employed to prepare

A beautiful, exuberant image from one of the rarest colour-plate bird books 'Recueil de cent-trente-trois Oiseaux des plus belle especes'.Maddalena Bouchard may be considered by some as a primitive among bird artists; however, while her birds are not true to nature in the conventional sense, they have more exuberance and charm than almost any other ornithological art with the possible exception of Manetti's Ornithologia (1765-76). Bouchard was also responsible for plates in Bonelli's Hortus Romanus (Rome 1772-93), which was also published by Bouchard and Gravier.The fierce falcon either alighting or taking off embodies the killer instinct, despite what at a later date might be called psychedelic eyes.Cf.
