        De Novorum Ossium, in Integris aut Maximis, ob Morbos, Deperditionibus, Regeneratione Experimenta.

      - Three folding engraved plates & one folding printed table. x, [11]-240 pp. 8vo, cont. vellum over boards (binding a little soiled & stained). Paris: F.A. Didot, 1775. First edition. Troja (1747-1827), studied medicine at Naples and in 1774 he went to Paris where he began the research on the formation of bone tissue and bone generation which made him famous. Although Réaumur and Trembley had earlier demonstrated the regrowth of limbs in crustacea and polyps, no one before had considered the possibility of regrowth of bones. "Troja demonstrated that if a foreign body is introduced into the marrow cavity of a long bone, the bony cylinder dies and a new bone is formed all around the necrotic one, the latter being eventually eliminated. Accordingly, Troja suggested that in treating extensive caries of the bone, marrow should be destroyed, so that new bone formation would result."-Leonardo, Lives of Master Surgeons, p. 428. Troja later took up again his work on bone surgery and regeneration. In 1814 he first described the perforating connective-tissue fibers, usually known as "Sharpey's fibers." Fine crisp copy.

        Crisis. Number LIX

      1775 - [MOORE, William]. The Crisis. Number LIX. (London: T.W. Shaw), March 2, 1776. Small folio (7 by 11-1/2 inches), disbound, three leaves tipped together at center fold for six pages; pp. [377]-382. $1750.A 1776 rarity, first edition of the 59th installment of "The Crisis": part of a weekly series of political essays published in London defending American liberty and criticizing royal authority"""violent censure of the British ministry's American policy" (Howes).The present issue is the 59th installment of a pro-American publication printed in London entitled "The Crisis." This weekly, published by T.W. Shaw, ran from January 1775 to September 1776 in 91 issues and was notable for its fierce attacks, not only against Parliament but George III as well; by order of the House of Commons, No. 3 was publicly burned in March, 1775. (Note: this series is not to be confused with Thomas Paine's similarly titled series of essays, "The American Crisis" which ran in newspapers beginning in December 1776 "" though he very well may have been inspired by the title.) Editorship has been attributed to William Moore, author of "The Whisperer," an anti-government British newspaper, using various pseudonyms. ("Casca" is the name used for this issue.) The text begins with an ornate initial "H" enclosed in the motto "Auro Libertas Pretiosior" "" "Freedom is more precious than gold."The present installment begins with a quote from Dr. Church's letter to Major Kane of the King's Army, calling Dr. Church "General Gage's Spy": "For the sake of the miserably convulsed Empire solicit Peace, repeal the Acts, or Britain is undone." The essay urges the administration to follow Dr. Church's advice, since "he is a villain of their own." It goes on to read, in part, "From the innocent blood thus spilt in America will arise a hydra with many heads; not a monster, but (hear it ye wise counselors of the royal cabinet!) an opulent, a splendid, a powerful Commonwealth". The rule of right is immutable and eternal. A government free from kings, and sons of kings, bids the fairest for preserving it. Such is a Commonwealth, (now in embryo in America) because it has virtue for its basis". With more than human fortitude they are wisely providing for their future peace in the midst of war." Pagination continuous from previous numbers, as issued. Fine condition. Scarce. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Essays Relating to Agriculture and Rural Affairs; in Two Parts

      â€¦By a Farmer. Three folding engraved plates. xxxiii, [1], 472 pp. Two parts in one vol. 8vo, cont. calf (head of spine a bit chipped), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Edinburgh: T. Cadell, 1775. First edition of Anderson's first book on farming; it was an enormously popular work which went through at least seven editions. Anderson (1739-1808), was an agriculturist and political economist. "His most striking characteristic was the combination of an intense interest in the practical working of some machine or object with a strong grasp of theory. He was an early adherent of the principles of political economy, and is held to have been in the subject's mainstream of development. He also carried out various experiments and was noted for his use of the newly designed two-horse plough at Monkshill. His long-term reputation rests on a large body of publications; pamphlets, newspapers, and articles in other people's works, for which he is said to have had at least fourteen aliases: Agricola, Timoleon, Germanicus, Cimon, Scoto-Britannicus, E., Aberdeen, Henry Plain, Impartial, A Scot, Senex, Timothy Hairbrain, Alcibiades, and Monsoon."-ODNB.

        Contemporary description of the Battle of Bunker Hill

      1775 - REVOLUTION. [Contemporary broadside describing the Battle of Bunker Hill]. [Boston: John Howe, 1775]. One broadside leaf (6 by 12 inches), matted and framed; entire piece measures 12-1/2 by 19 inches. $21,000.Scarce and important original 1775 broadside offering a Loyalist account of the Battle of Bunker Hill, printed a week after the fighting.The first major battle of the American Revolution, the Battle of Bunker Hill, saw the revolutionaries defeated; however, their "skill and tenacity reassured colonists everywhere that the Revolution would not be strangled in its cradle" (Oxford Companion to United States Military History). This contemporary broadside describes the conflict from a Loyalist perspective, praising the British victory. John Howe, the same Loyalist printer who published General Gage's account of the events of April 19, 1775, printed and circulated this document. While it accurately describes the action, the casualty count it contains has been heavily embroidered by the British for propaganda purposes, emphasizing their troops' fierce bravery and courage: "The Loss [the revolutionaries] sustained, must have been considerable, from the vast Numbers they were seen to carry off during the Action, exclusive of what they suffered from the shipping. About a Hundred were buried the Day after, and Thirty found wounded on the Field, some of which are since Dead. About 170 of the King's Troops were killed, and since dead of their Wounds; and a great many were wounded." According to Boatner, American strength was about 3000 with an estimated 140 dead and 601 wounded. British strength was about 2500, and the King's troops lost about 45% of their number. Of the British officer casualties in the 20 battles fought during the Revolution, one-eighth were killed and one-sixth wounded at Bunker Hill. The broadside concludes: "This Action has shown the bravery of the King's Troops, who under every Disadvantage, gained a compleat Victory over Three Times their Number, strongly posted, and covered by Breastworks. But they fought for their King, their Laws and Constitution." Streeter 760. Evans 13842. Ford 1801. A fine broadside, rare and desirable.

First edition of this extraordinarily prescient work in the field of automatic instruments, of great interest to musicologists and historians of computing alike. With almost mathematical exactitude Engramelle successfully designed a playback system that was never superseded until the advent of MIDI technology in 1983. "When Joseph Engramelle introduced a new method of notating music, designed to enable pinners of cylinders to reproduce the minute details of articulation and rhythmic nuance that characterized the best keyboard playing (La Tonothechnie, 1775), he became one of the first writers to show a concern for the artistic possibilities of automatic instruments and an appreciation of their historical value for future generations."-Harvard Dictionary of Music, "Automatic Instrument," p. 68. Engramelle (1727-1805), was a French builder of mechanical instruments. His most enduring legacy is his "recordings" of contemporary composers performing their own works. With extraordinary fidelity, the inventor was able to achieve this by employing a numbered dial (cadran) used in "notating" the studded barrels of mechanical musical instruments. But Engramelle's invention was no binomial player-piano or musical box. "His care and subtlety in using the duration of notes to heighten metrical organization gives vivid results. The precision of his directions for performing equal notes unequally shows remarkable sensitivity to musical style as well as invention in clarifying meter."-George Houle, Meter in Music, 1600-1800: Performance, Perception, and Notation (1999), p. 122. Engramelle's system provided a means to unlock secrets of performance that would have been lost otherwise. For instance, the "martellement" (a hammering, or sharp accent) had not yet been indicated by a sign. Its existence is known only from the results of the present work, and from the diagrams Engramelle prepared for his chapter on "Tonotechnie" in Vol. IV of Dom Bedos de Celles' L'Art du Facteur d'Orgues (Paris, 1778). Herein we also find the first real evidence of the use of "hard swing" (i.e. notes inégale ratio 3:1) in the 18th-century. Engramelle was concerned primarily with articulation; his elaborate code of separation of notes down to the smallest possible degree was based on the playing of the finest musicians and composers of the day, notably Claude Balbastre (1724-99), at that time one of the most famous in Europe. Balbastre played ornaments over and over so that Engramelle could notate them with mathematical accuracy. In the matter of articulation, it is through Engramelle that we have the first permanent record of actual performance style. "Engramelle was explicitly concerned with the preservation of historic performing styles and realized that composers of even the recent past would be 'disgusted' at the way their works were played in his own time."-David Fuller, "An Introduction to Automatic Instruments" in Early Music, (April 1983), pp. 164-66. As is well known, Charles Babbage proposed a "mechanical engine" which would capture and store raw data, offer an interactive user interface, and output the results exactly. But Babbage's machine existed only in theory: Engramelle's invention actually worked, and it continues to work in the manner that it was intended, as we hear in the Patrick Feaster's audio CD which accompanies his pioneering Pictures of Sound. One Thousand Years of Educed Audio: 980-1980 (2012). Engramelle's device was programmed by an arrangement of pins driven into the surface of a cylinder, a process known as barrel pinning. He devised an innovative method using a dial that made it possible to determine exact durations of notes, and then to document them out on the cylinder. "Previously, several attempts had been made in Europe to mark up a cylinder and a roll of paper directly from the keyboard - an analogue process. Engramelle's device was digital: it calibrated the values of the notes according to the divisions of his dial. For him, le vrai génie of the great musicians was an ideal to be expressed with gout. Reproduced by a machine, their interpretations would - he hoped - be preserved for future generations with perfect accuracy."-Yuko Suzuki, "The Development of a Device for Documenting Musical Performance Practice in 18th Century France focusing on M.-D.-J. Engramelle's Tonotechnie (1775) and his Contribution to L'Art du Facteur d'Orgues (1778)" in Ongakugaku: Journal of the Musicological Society of Japan, Vol. LV, No. 2 (2009). Ultimately, automatic instruments are documents of performance and Engramelle's was the very first to capture a real one. "The program reflects actual live performance by Balbastre, in the presence of Engramelle, who monitored the timing of the recording precisely to the second. Engramelle's work is a unique document in the history of 18th century performance practice, and the only piece for a mechanical instrument both set up under the direction of the composer and specifically designed to exhibit its ability to reproduce the ornamentation, articulation, and rhythmic nuances of an ideal live performance."-Benjamin Beck, First Sound Recordings, online at benbeck.co.uk. Engramelle's system was the harbinger of MIDI sequencing in capturing pitch, duration, and force (velocity) of each note. The output of the real-time recordings was editable so that near perfect renditions of actual performances could be created. As a result, the composer became a producer, involved in all steps from conception to final sounding. Very good copy. Contemporary ownership inscription on half-title and title. ? Chapuis, Histoire de la Boite à Musique et de la Musique mécanique, pp. 27-32.

"Another great collector of the same generation was Dr Anthony Askew (1722-1772), who travelled on the Continent and whose achievements in the medical field are quite eclipsed by his proficiency as a classical scholar. As a book-collector, he is said to have attempted to secure a complete series of all the Greek classics ever published; he purchased privately R. Mead's Greek manuscripts, the papers of Dr Taylor and some fine early classical codices from the library of the Maffei family. His sale (13 February 1775) was a great success and was attended by the Paris bookseller De Bure, who bought for the Duc de La Vallière and other French collectors (including the King of France)."-De Ricci, p. 52.

        Radiertes physiognomisches Portrait mit eigenh. Titel und U. ("L."). O. O. u. D.

      1775. Ca. 75 x 95 mm (Plattenrand 59 x 79 mm). Originales Handkolorit in schwarzer Tuschumrahmung (das Portrait weiß), auf blaugrauen Kartonträger aufgezogen. Hübsches Beispiel für Lavaters Physiognomien, hier bezeichnet "Beobachtendes, überlegendes Staunen." - Lavater versuchte, die Physiognomik gleichsam zu einer Wissenschaft vom inneren Menschen zu erheben: Aus der Bildung der äußeren Körperteile, besonders des Gesichts, sollte auf die seelischen Eigenschaften geschlossen werden. Sein theoretisches Werk dazu, das 1775-78 erschien, hatte außergewöhnlichen Einfluß auf viele Zeitgenossen, außer auf Herder und Jacobi auch auf seinen zeitweiligen Freund Goethe, während Lichtenberg ("Fragment von Schwänzen") und Nicolai Lavaters orakelhafte Theorien heftigst kritisierten.
