        The Politician's Dictionary; or, a Summary of Political Knowledge...for the Use of those who would wish to understand whatever occurs in the science of Politics..

      London: Geo. Allen and William Lane, 1775. The binding very slightly worn with one hinge just cracking, but in absolutely original condition.. Two volumes, octavo; a fine copy, complete with half titles, in a simple contemporary binding of sheep. Extremely scarce: the anonymous 'Politician's Dictionary' contains considerable material on colonisation in general, but is of particular significance for its 34-page article on "The Southern Continent" in which the author discusses the geography of the Pacific, the familiar arguments for the existence of a southern continent and the voyages that have demonstrated its existence - Tasman, Quiros, Schouten, Dampier, etc. He continues with a physical description of the continent, the possibilities for its settlement, its uses for trade, agriculture, manufacture, a comparison with other colonial ventures, and the attractions of settling New Zealand and some of the Pacific islands at the same time. In short this is a highly important article which, drawing its information from Harris, De Brosses, Callander and others, discusses from an independent standpoint the advantages to be gained from colonising Australia.The date of publication is particularly interesting. English attention had begun to focus on Australia at the beginning of the 1770s with the first reports of Cook's discoveries, while in 1776 a stop had been put to transportation to America, 40,000 convicts having been sent there before the War of Independence. Parliamentary Acts of 1776 and 1779 enabled the courts to transport convicts to any destination and to hold them in convict hulks in the meantime. Not until 1779 did the Commons hear evidence on the suitability of New South Wales as a penal settlement, and it was another seven years before transportation to Botany Bay was decided upon.The 'Dictionary' was specifically intended to be read by the decision-makers of the time, and its Australian content is thus of high interest; other articles deal specifically with individual colonies and there are also general essays on Exportation, the North-west and North-east Passages, Privateering in the South-Seas, Settlement in the South-seas, Trade and Whale Fishery.This is a fine copy of a fascinating publication, apparently so far neglected by the historians of the movement to colonise Australia. Volume 1 here is in its first edition while volume 2 is marked second edition; the sole difference between the two editions of the second volume appears to have been the title-page, which may indicate a renewed attempt to market a poor seller. A comparison with the copy of the first edition in the Kress Library shows that the sheets that comprise the text of both editions are identical.

        Leiden Marepoort - naar La Fargue, ca. 1775-1780.

      STADSGEZICHT LEIDEN - TREKSCHUITEN VOOR DE MAREPOORT NAAR HAARLEMTekening met waterverf vervaardigd ca. 1775-80, naar een schilderij van Paulus Constantijn la Fargue. Afm. (voorstelling): 44 x 54 cm.Vanaf de westelijke kant van de Nieuwe Mare (tussen Langegracht en Oude Vest) zien we de Marepoortsbrug met daarachter de Marepoort die leidde naar de Haarlemmertrekvaart.Aan de overkant van de Nieuwe Mare staan bij de ophaalbrug twee (vermoedelijk administratie-/wacht-)huisjes van de trekvaart en liggen trekschuiten.In 1657 werd de aanleg van de trekvaart naar Haarlem afgerond. Er was daarbij gebruik gemaakt van reeds bestaande waterlopen en zo werd de Mare onderdeel van de trekvaart. Het riviertje werd hiertoe verbreed en het jaagpad kwam op de westelijke oever van de nieuwe vaart te liggen. Een gevolg hiervan was dat de oude brug over de singel en de oude Marepoort niet meer goed aansloten op dit nieuwe jaagpad. Door de aanleg van de trekvaart nam de drukte bij de Marepoort snel toe en in 1664 werd besloten een nieuwe stadspoort te bouwen. Stadsbouwmeester Willem van der Helm maakte hiervoor het ontwerp. De bouwwerkzaamheden werden in 1666 afgerond.Het bakstenen gebouw had een hoge poortopening die omlijst werd door gekoppelde Ionische pilasters en hoofdgestel. Aan zowel stads- als landzijde werd dit bekroond met een fronton. Bovenop de poort stond een gesloten vierkante lantaarn.Paulus Constantijn la Fargue (1729-1782) ? bekend om zijn nauwkeurig uitgewerkte stadsgezichten - maakte twee schilderijen van vrijwel het zelfde gezichtspunt. Onze tekening is vermoedelijk een iets gesimplificeerde kopie van het schilderij uit 1771 (in particulier bezit, te zien geweest in het Maritiem Museum Rotterdam in 2008 tijdens de expositie "Macht & Glorie: Scheepvaart in de Gouden Eeuw'). Een vergelijking met de wandkaart van Leiden van Christian Hagen uit 1670, laat zien dat de gevels aan beide kanten van de gracht exact zijn weergegeven.Prijs: € 3.450,-.

Edition originale française traduite de l'italien de Papacino d'Antoni (1714-1786) par Gratien-Jean-Baptiste-Louis Flavigny (1740-1783) - illustrée de 7 planches dépliantes. Exemplaire sur papier fort. « Pour ne rien laisser à désirer, on voudrait donner au Militaire une histoire raisonnée des différents progrès de la fortification, par le Plan ; par l'exposé des principaux systèmes dans l'ordre où ils ont paru successivement ; & par une courte digression sur les avantages et sur les désavantages de chacun d'eux. Il y a deux cents systèmes principaux, auxquels se rapporte tout ce qui a été inventé jusqu'ici sur la fortification : leur plan, leur exposé, leur discussion, sont peut-être ce qu'il y a de plus propre à répandre la lumière la plus vive sur la Science de l'Ingénieur. » Du même Papacino, Flavigny avait traduit en 1773 l'Examen de la poudre.

        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]

      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.

        THE DECLARATION BY THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED COLONIES OF NORTH AMERICA, NOW MET IN GENERAL CONGRESS AT PHILADELPHIA, SETTING FORTH THE CAUSES AND NECESSITY OF TAKING UP ARMS.

      London. 1775. - vi,[3]-32pp. Modern half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Titlepage soiled, two drawings on final page (below the text). Tanned. Very good. One of three London editions of this important collection of Congressional papers, including the declaration of Congress issued July 6, 1775, giving reasons for taking up arms; the address to the twelve colonies on July 8, calling for support, and the Olive Branch Petition, the last attempt at conciliation, issued September 4, 1775. The first document appeared in several American editions before the British, but none combined with the Olive Branch petition. "This London edition was secretly issued, with no printer shown, as propaganda for American sympathizers" - Howes. The titlepage instructs: "read with candour; judge with impartiality." This edition includes a "prefatory address from the London Association to the Public." AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 75-149d. HOWES D198. SABIN 15522, 19160.

        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. The map is wonderfully detailed and informative giving accurately the locales of Indian tribes just west of the white colonies, particularly in the southeast. Stevens & Tree 51 (c); McCorkle 775.2.

        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. Put into the long pond, by the Temple, 58 brace of carp, & five brace of tench. Into the square pond, seven brace of carp'.> First edition. Sweet & Maxwell I, p.358. Sir William Addington was 'one of the Magistrates presiding at the Public Office in Bow Street' and he accordingly dedicates his laborious Abridgment> to Sir John Fielding, his celebrated but controversial magistrate colleague. 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.

      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").
