        Gramatica Arabigo-Española, Vulgar y Literal. Con un Diccionario Arabigo-Español, en que se ponen las voces más usuales para una conversación familiar, con el Texto de la Doctrina Cristiana en el idioma arabigo.

      Madrid, en la Imprenta de Don Antonio Perez de Soto, 1775. - in-4. 9ff. 272pp. XVII. Plein vélin du temps (taches et petit accroc sur le plat supérieur). Edition Originale. Francisco Cañes (mort en 1775) était un missionnaire espagnol originaire de Valencia, qui résida pendant seize ans à Damas (Syrie) où il enseignait dans un collège. Cet ouvrage constitue apparemment la première grammaire arabe imprimée en langue espagnole avec des caractères arabes; dans sa préface, l'auteur rappelle notamment que l'ouvrage de Pedro de Alcalá, imprimé en 1505, était en caractères latins. "Presento pues al público esta gramática arabe, deseoso de contribuír por mi parte á que se pueda aprender con facilidad una lengua no ruda, bárbara, é inutil, y que algunos por ignorancia desprecian; sino elegante, erudita, y utilisima , como los hombres doctos reconocen: á vista de lo mucho que se escribe en ella, y de las numerosas naciones que la hablan en Asia, Africa y parte de Europa". Après avoir exposé les règles de la grammaire arabe, l'ouvrage propose un dictionnaire rangé par thèmes et, avec une pagination séparée, une version arabe de la Doctrine Chrétienne que les missionnaires devaient apprendre par cœur. Galeries de ver marginales à une douzaine de feuillets, sans atteinte au texte. Quelques rousseurs. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Provinzialbriefe über die Sittenlehre und Politik der Jesuiten unter dem Namen Louis de Montalte an einen Provinzial, und an die Ehrwürdigen Väter aus der Geselschaft Jesu geschrieben von Blasius Paskal. Nebst dem Leben des Hrn. Paskal, und der Geschichte dieser Provinzialbriefe. Aus dem Französischen und Lateinischen übersetzt (von F. L. Lachmann). 3 Teile in einem Band. 238; 240; 326 S., 5 Bl. Schlichter Pappbd d. Z. (berieben, Rückendeckel außen mit leichten Feuchtigkeitsspuren).

      Lemgo, Meyer, 1773-1775. - Seltene erste Ausgabe dieser frühen Übersetzung, erschienen in der berühmten Meyerschen Buchhandlung in Lemgo, die für die Veröffentlichung zahlreicher seinerzeit wegweisender Schriften bekannt ist. Die 'Provinzialbriefe' wurden als literarische Meisterwerke bewundert. "Ihre Argumentationsstrategie erreicht durch Klarheit des Begriffs und Appell an den gesunden Menschenverstand, sprachliche Präzision, stilistischen Einfallsreichtum und ironische Distanz eine Identifikation mit dem 'Provinzler', die durch die Extrembeispiele aus dem kasuistischen Repertoire (der Jesuiten) zur sachlichen Übereinstimmung führt" (KNLL XII 987 ff.). In diesen Briefen griff Pascal die Jesuiten entschieden an und gab den ersten Anstoß zu den öffentlichen Erörterungen, die schließlich zur Auflösung des Ordens führten. "Die 'Lettres' . sind das erste Musterbeispiel französischer Prosa, wie wir sie heute kennen – untadelig geschliffen in der Form, abwechslungsreich im Stil und handelnd von einem Gegenstand universeller Bedeutung. Als Äußerung einer der feinsten Intelligenzen des 17. Jahrhunderts stehen sie nur Pascals eigenen 'Pensées' nach ." (Carter-Muir). Fromm gibt eine Übersetzung von 1740 an, die Lachmann jedoch nicht gekannt hat und die wir nur einmal feststellen konnten. – Frisches, sauberes Exemplar. – Goed. IV 1, 290, 68, 4. Frommm 19677.

        Eloge historique de M. Quesnay. Bound last with three other works.

      Paris: Didot, 1775 - Octavo (200 x 120 mm). Contemporary French mottled calf, spine decorated gilt, with two red morocco lettering-pieces, edges red, marbled endpapers. Extremities a little worn, four small wormholes to rear joint, printed paper shelf labels to foot of spine. Contemporary manuscript table of contents to front free endpaper. Very rare first edition in book form of this obituary of Quesnay, which first appeared in the Nouvelles ephémérides économiques, in May 1775. Another edition, by Cailleau, appeared later the same year. Albon here gives an outline of physiocratic teaching, and points out Quesnay's influential distinction between the natural and the legal right, something that had been confounded by earlier writers, such as Grotius, Pufendorf, and Vattel. Pages 84 to 100 contain Albon's Lettre sur le commerce, les fabrications, & la consommation des objets de luxe, an article that had been published the previous year in the Journal d'agriculture. Camille d'Albon (1753–1789) was the very model of a liberal aristocrat of the pre-revolutionary period in France – philanthropist, agricultural improver, town planner, pamphleteer, minor politician, even lesser littérateur, and patron of the arts. He associated with the physiocrats, was an editor of Baudeau's Nouvelles Éphémérides (1775–6), and wrote studies of Chamousset and his close friend Court de Gebelin, as well as a number of pamphlets on agrarian reform, and the Discours politiques (a work on the economy and politics of several Euopean countries). Bound before the Albon are three works of literary criticism, all in first edition: I. FERRI, Giovanni, Conte di S. Constant. Mélanges littéraires et philosophiques. Avignon, 'et se trouve à Paris chez les Marchands de Nouvautés', 1775 II. [AQUIN DE CHÂTEAU-LYON, Pierre-Louis d']. Éloge de Molière en vers avec notes curieuses. Par le petit-cousin de Rabelais.

        North America from the French of Mr. d'Anville improved with the British Surveys made Since the Peace

      London: Sayer & Bennett, 1775. Copper engraved map with original outline colour. Repaired tears and creases in the upper margin, otherwise excellent. A fine of copy this attractive map of North America Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville was the successor to Guillaume De l'Isle in the sense that he maintained the rigorous standard for accuracy that De l'Isle had established. D'Anville was the last French mapmaker to establish an international reputation which was superior to all his contemporaries, as witnessed by the respect shown by English cartographers and publishers during an era when the two countries were often at war and always hostile to one another. This D'Anville map was first appropriated by Thomas Jefferys in 1755, who used it to demonstrate French provocations that would lead imminently to war. In 1775, Sayer & Bennett revised Jefferys' map to show British colonial America as understood when the Revolution broke out.. The Peace referred to in the title refers to the 1763 peace accord with France.

        Constituciones de la Real y Pontificia Universidad de Mexico

      Mexico City: Zuniga y Ontiveros, 1775. Second edition. Quarto (31 x 21 cm), 16 ff, 238 pp, 11 ff (index). Palau (60067). Palafox (1600 - 59) was one of the most productive and enlightened of the Viceroy/ Bishops that came from Spain to make a mark in the New World. Although he served as archbishop of Puebla for many years, it was during his short stint as Viceroy that saw the drawing up of new statutes for the governing of the University of Mexico, their first major amendment since the foundation in 1551, the first university in the Americas, and based on the statutes of the University of Salamanca in Spain. His conflict with the Jesuits over their many special privileges became very acrimonious, and though he had the support of the King and even the Pope, he was eventually appointed to a bishopric in Spain for the sake of peace. His case for beatification is still ongoing. The book is quite scarce in the market -- I find one auction record only dating back to 1981, and that of a rather rough copy. This copy previously belonged to Walter Howe, and bears his signature with the date 1938, as well as his bookplate. Howe was Ambassador to Chile and also professor of history of the United States at the University of Mexico (UNAM) as is attested by an envelope tipped into the front pastedown, with a letter confirming the appointment. (Howe's particular interest was mining law in New Spain, on which he wrote a book, the Mining Guild of New Spain, Harvard Pr., 1948.) There is some worming along the left inner hinge, but it does not affect the text. The binding is a handsome contemporary full marbled calf, gilt, with red morocco spine label. Despite the slight worming, this is a very good copy, and with a distinguished provenance, of a book that one very seldom sees.

      London: W. Strahan and M. Woodfall. 1775. oblong 8vo., viii + 558 + (38)pp., bound in (probably) the original half calf over marbled paper sides, the binding very worn but sound, internally very good. An interesting copy with the early ownership signature of H.L. Brown> and the intriguing note, evidently written by the first owner, presumably a lawyer: 'October ye 23d 1776.

The Abridgment> itself, a remarkable tour-de-force, is a painstaking classification and tabulation of criminal law.

      [Paris] 4to (26.9 cm, 10.6"). Part 2 only of 2. 8 pp.. no date [1775] 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. 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.

        A Chart of the Gulf of St. Laurence, composed from a great number of actual surveys and other materials, regulated and connected by astronomical observations

      London: "Printed & sold by Robt. Sayer & Jno. Bennett", 1775. Engraved map. Table of astronomical observations. Rare first state of Sayer and Bennett's chart of the Gulf of St. Laurence, based on the surveys by James Cook and Michael Lane. At the conclusion of the French and Indian War, the British needed accurate charts of the territories that had been awarded to them in the Treaty of Paris. The areas that were of particular interest to the Admiralty included Labrador and Newfoundland. "On 19 April 1763 James Cook, Master R.N.. was ordered by the Admiralty to proceed to Newfoundland 'in order to your taking a survey of the Parts of the Coasts and Harbours of that Island'" (Tooley & Skelton, in Tooley's The Mapping of America p.177). His appointment would have been based, in no small part, on the glowing endorsement of his commanding officer, who had written to the Admiralty in December 1762 "that from my experience of Mr. Cook's genius and capacity, I think him well fitted for the work he has undertaken, and for greater undertakings of the same kind". "The charting of Newfoundland and southern Labrador by Cook... and by his successor Michael Lane ... was unequalled, for thoroughness and method, by any previous hydrographic work by Englishmen [and also allowed Cook to master the art of practical surveying and navigation, in a way that brought him to the attention of the Admiralty and Royal Society at a crucial moment. More immediately.] it produced the first charts of this extensive and difficult coastline that could (in the words of a later hydrographer) 'with any degree of safety be trusted by the seaman'" (Tooley & Skelton op. cit.). Cook started by surveying the northwest stretch of coastline in 1763 and 1764, then in 1765 and 1766 the south coast between Cape Ray and the Burin Peninsula, and in 1767 the west coast. His work was interrupted by what was to prove to be the first of his three great voyages to the Pacific, and the work on Newfoundland and southern Labrador was finished by Michael Lane between 1768 and 1773. Thomas Jefferys used the charts by Cook and others to form the "Collection of Charts of 1769-70, a prototype ... for the celebrated North-American Pilot which was to be published in five English editions from 1775 to 1806" (Tooley & Skelton op,cit.). Unlike many of the other charts in the North American Pilot which appeared in other forms in earlier publications, the present chart first appeared in the 1775 edition of that great atlas. As the title suggests, Sayer and Bennett drafted this map by compiling information from other sources, with the charting of southern Labrador and the western and southern coasts of Newfoundland entirely based on the surveys by Cook and Lane. The map would be republished in successive issues of the North American Pilot (with changes to the imprint) as well as copies of The American Atlas (with "Pl. No." added to the upper right corner in advance of "XI").

      [London: R. Sayer, 1775. Engraving, on laid paper, full period hand colouring. Title and text in English and French. Early issue of a rare engraving of Niagara Falls, here with full period hand colouring. Based upon Hennepin's view, as well as the inset of Niagara Falls which appeared on the famed Popple map, this print was published by Robert Sayer and is listed in his 1775 catalogue, though was likely for sale at an earlier date (perhaps as early as 1751). This version of the print would become the basis for other 18th century depictions of the falls. A later edition of this view would be published by Laurie and Whittle, with their imprint, in 1794.

The present volume gives an account of the history from September 1773 through February 1775. The school, founded by Wheelock, opened in 1754 under the name of the Moors Charity School. In 1772 it was removed to Hanover "where it formed the germ of the institution, known as Dartmouth College" (Field).

        STRICTURES ON A PAMPHLET, ENTITLED, A "FRIENDLY ADDRESS TO ALL REASONABLE AMERICANS, ON THE SUBJECT OF OUR POLITICAL CONFUSIONS." ADDRESSED TO THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA

      [New York: James Rivington], 1775. Modern paper covered boards, printed paper label. Titlepage trimmed a bit close. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth folding case, spine gilt. An odd title, this is the second half only of the Rivington edition of Henry Barry's THE GENERAL ATTACKED BY A SUB-ALTERN, with its own titlepage, of the tract that Barry was responding to, Charles Lee's STRICTURES.... The English-born Lee had a long career in the British army before eventually taking up the American cause. A fiery republican, he served as a general in the Continental Army, rallying troops and readying defenses before eventually clashing with George Washington over strategy. He participated in the pamphlet wars leading up to the Declaration of Independence with the present work, written in response to Loyalist Thomas Bradbury Chandler's FRIENDLY ADDRESS TO ALL REASONABLE AMERICANS. Also published in New York in 1774, Chandler warned the colonists against military or economic measures against British authority. Lee essentially argues that the British forces aren't so tough, and that a disciplined American force can triumph in its righteous cause. Thomas Adams treats this item in two entries of his AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE, saying it was not published separately from Rivington's 1775 edition of Barry, yet it appears that some enterprising booksellers occasionally made it a discreet title.

Halblederbände d.Zt. auf fünf Bünden mit zwei farb. Rückenschilden und –vergoldung. Teils etwas berieben, Bd.1 und „Anhang“ fachgerecht passend neu gebunden. Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke IV,978,8 und [„Anhang“:] 25 [nur der Einzeldruck mit diesem Impressum, kennt für den „Anhang“ nur die Titelauflage bei Perthes]; Engelmann 207, 468-473, 625,II und Anhang, S.111,49-51; Bauer 424-431 ; Thanner, Schweizer. Buchillustration im Zeitalter der Aufklärung am Beispiel von J.R. Schellenberg 5-8.). - Alle Bände auf Schreibpapier, gelegentlich etwas fleckig. Teile I/II in der Höhe etwas kürzer. Mit allen Teilen in erster Ausgabe wie vorliegend ist CLAUDIUS‘ berühmtes Werk außerordentlich selten. Unser Exemplar entspricht weitestgehend den Merkmalen, die H.Platschek im Anhang zur Neuausgabe (Sämtliche Werke, München 1968) als Kennzeichen des ersten Drucks nennt; allerdings kennt selbst Platschek nicht den Anhang zum 5ten Theil (.) mit dem Impressum „gedruckt bey N.C.Wörmer“, weshalb er zu der falschen Aussage kommt, der Einzeldruck Von und mit (.) bei WÖRMER sei zuerst erschienen und als Anhang mit Impressum „in Commißion bey Friedr. Perthes“ erst später (PERTHES übernahm 1798 den Asmus) der Reihe beigegeben worden (vgl. Platschek S.1029, Anm.370). Daneben ist die erste Ausgabe von Teil I/II kaum je zu finden. „Die einzige rechtmäßige Ausgabe des Asmus I/II zu Lebzeiten CLAUDIUS‘ erschien zur Ostermesse 1775: (.) gedruckt bey Bode 1775.“ (Platschek S.996). Als „rechtmäßig“ darf sicher auch die Ausgabe von I/II mit Impressum „bey Gottlieb Löwe in Breslau“ bezeichnet werden, jedoch ist sie vermutlich zusammen mit III, also erst 1778 ausgegeben worden, als CLAUDIUS nach einer erzwungenen Unterbrechung die Fortsetzung anging. „Kurz nach Erscheinen von Asmus I/II hatte BODE, der Verleger des Wandsbecker Bothen, CLAUDIUS gekündigt (22.6.1775). Durch HERDER war CLAUDIUS im Herbst 1775 eine Stelle als Privatsekretär bei Minister von MOSER in Darmstadt vermittelt worden, die CLAUDIUS im Juni des folgenden Jahres antrat.“ (ebda S.1013). Eine schwere Erkrankung hielt ihn in Darmstadt auch nach dem Ausscheiden MOSERs aus dem Staatsdienst bis zum Juni 1777 in Darmstadt. In finanzielle Not geraten entschloss sich CLAUDIUS zu einer weiteren Sammlung seiner Texte, die als dritter Teil des Asmus bei einem neuen Verleger, LÖWE in Breslau erschien. Wie schon für den ersten Teil warb er um Subskribenten und wurde, wie früher schon von HAMANN, VOß, SCHUBART, HÖLTY, auch diesmal von Freunden unterstützt. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nouvelle table des articles contenus dans les volumes de l'Académie royale des sciences de Paris depuis 1666 jusqu'en 1770

      1775 - 4 vol. de I. CXXVIII, 491pp. Paris, Ruault, 1775, in-4, 4 vol. de I. CXXVIII, 491pp. (+ VIII*). - II. (4), II, 473pp. - III. (4), 651pp. - IV. (4), 232, 363pp, demi-basane marbrée à coins, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque), L'Académie des sciences de Paris fut créée en 1666 par Colbert, qui réunit un petit groupe de savants deux fois par semaine, dans la bibliothèque du roi. L'Académie reçut ses statuts en 1699, avec le titre d'Académie royale, et fut installée au Louvre. Elle contribua au mouvement scientifique de son temps par ses publications et joua un rôle de conseil auprès du pouvoir. La série des volumes annuels "Histoire de l'Académie royale des sciences", tirés des registres de l'Académie, a été créée par le règlement de 1699. Les années 1666 à 1698 furent compilées plus tardivement, à la fin du 18° siècle. Ces précieux volumes de table, composés par l'abbé Rozier (1734-93), permettent d'effectuer des recherches dans les publications de 1666 à 1770. Qqs restaurations [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A SERMON ON THE PRESENT SITUATION OF AMERICAN AFFAIRS. PREACHED IN CHRIST-CHURCH, JUNE 23, 1775. AT THE REQUEST OF THE OFFICERS OF THE THIRD BATTALION OF THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, AND DISTRICT OF SOUTHWARK

      Philadelphia, 1775. Modern paper covered boards, printed paper label. Early ownership signature on titlepage. Light, even tanning, some light foxing. Overall, very good. In a half morocco and cloth folding case, spine gilt. An important sermon, delivered shortly after the Battle of Bunker Hill. Its author, William Smith (1727-1803), was an Anglican clergyman, teacher, and first provost of the College, Academy, and Charitable School of Philadelphia. Although Smith opposed the Stamp Act and argued strongly for full rights and representation of the American colonies, he did not favor independence - a position that placed him, at the outset of the Revolution, in "an embarrassing predicament" (DAB). The present sermon, preached before Congress at Christ Church, Philadelphia, June 28, 1775, "...created a great sensation. It went through many editions and was translated into several foreign languages. It opposed British measures and awakened patriotism, but in its preface Smith professed himself as 'ardently panting for a return of those Halcyon-days of harmony' and as 'animated with purest zeal for the mutual interests of Great-Britain and the Colonies'" (DAB). AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE lists fifteen issues and editions of this text for 1775; of these, 196a and 196b (the present issue) are first, with Adams noting that no attempt has been made to determine priority between the two issues.
