Leaves unsigned as well as unpaginated. [Bound with:] A companion to the reverend mr. rider's almanack, for mdcclxxvi. Containing A Variety of useful Particulars. Together with a cash-book, on a new plan; More Concise than any yet Published. London. Printed for T. Carnan...., [s.d.]. [17]ff (of 18?). Leaves unsigned as well as unpaginated. With the calendar printed entirely in red ink. Some shaving, with loss, to final lines of the last leaf. 18mo?. Contemporary blind-ruled limp calf wallet-binding, with remains of pink-ribbon tie to flap, marbled pastedown, with pockets at each end. A rare survival - unrecorded in the usual databases - of the important first appearance of a new, monopoly-busting late eighteenth-century almanac, issued by publisher Thomas Carnan (1737-88), who had in June 1775 secured a famous legal victory against what was previously considered the exclusive and ever-lasting printing privilege of the Stationers' Company. His success in the Court of Common Pleas was clearly a delicious commercial prospect, and is celebrated on the title of this new work: 'The First Year of ALMANACKS being restored to Freedom from Tyranny and Dulness' Unwilling to be beaten to the punch in the newly liberated almanac business, Carnan evidently produced at least two titles for 1776; this present work (with G. Robinson), and The lady’s and gentleman’s diary, or, royal almanack … [Click Below for Full Description]

When this book was published, he was in a location in Southwark, 826-828 Swanson St. Philadelphia.

Jean Baptiste Greuze (painter): Jean Massard (engraver)
Jean Baptiste Greuze, Paris 1775 - This is a very rare and well documented print. It was engraved in 1775 by Jean Massard after a drawing by Jean-Baptiste Greuze. Greuze had produced a drawing specifically for the purpose of it being engraved, and in 1772 entered into an agreement with Massard to engrave the drawing as an exact copy of the drawing and to the same size. Each print from the engraving was to be signed on the reverse by both Greuze and Massard, as this print is (on the verso - see image) The Art Gallery of New South Wales has another copy of this print, and also the original drawing. The only other copy of which we are aware is in the British Museum. It may be presumed that only a few copies were made, and even fewer will have survived. We understand that Greuze made an earlier painting, which was exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1769, very similar to this engraving. The painting was however a portrait of Jean-Joseph de Laborde and his family, commisioned by de Laborde, and it is not the model for this engraving (pace the British Museum). The painting is now in the Collection Laborde in Madrid. De Laborde was executed by guillotine during the French Revolution. The picture is in the typical style of Greuze (1725-1805), one of the foremost European genre painters. The art critic Diderot claimed that Greuze was "the first who has set out to give art some morals, and to organise events into series that could easily be turned into novels." Jean Massard (1740-1822) was a pupil of the King's engraver, Martinet. The condition of the print is not perfect. The print is o … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERQUIN (Arnaud), ROUSSEAU (Jean-Jacques)
Paris, 1775. Petit in-4, plein veau raciné moderne, dos à 5 nerfs, couverture de papier peint doré d'origine conservée, (4), 18 p. Édition originale de cette adaptation du ‘Pygmalion’ de J.-J. Rousseau par Arnaud Berquin, entièrement gravée sur papier de Hollande. Titre gravé par Nicolas Ponce d'après Pierre-Clément Marillier et 6 vignettes de Jean-Michel Moreau Le Jeune, gravées par Nicolas Delaunay et Ponce, "parmi les plus délicates de la fin du XVIIIe siècle". Le texte est entièrement gravé par Droüet. Rousseau rédigea ‘Pygmalion’, pièce en un acte et en prose, en 1762 lors de son exil à Neuchâtel et la conçut pour être accompagnée d’intermèdes musicaux confiés au compositeur lyonnais Horace Coignet. La création eut lieu en 1770 dans un théâtre privé de Lyon lors du passage de Rousseau dans cette ville puis elle fut reprise avec un considérable succès à la Comédie française le 30 octobre 1775. C’est pour bénéficier de cette vogue que Berquin composa cette adaptation en vers précédée d’un vibrant éloge de Rousseau, "réformateur de la scène lyrique" en guise de préface. (Cohen, 141. Dufour, I, p. 224. Tchemerzine-Scheler, V, 556). Quelques auréoles claires et petites piqûres éparses. Quelques petits accrocs et épidermures à la reliure. Bon exemplaire, grand de marges, relié à l'époque. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Voltaire, d. i. François Marie Arouet, écrivain et philosophe (1694–1778).
Ferney, 26. II. 1775. 2 pp. 4to, papier. Malgré son grand âge (il a alors 79 ans !). Voltaire conserve toute sa verve et demeure au centre des débats intellectuels de son temps. Le prolixe auteur s’adresse ici vraisemblablement à un autre homme de lettres avec lequel il semble avoir eu des démélés par le passé mais qu’il semble tenir en haute estime. Après quelques considérations habituelles sur sa santé chancelante « Un vieillard qui n’en peut plus a repris un peu de vie en recevant votre excellent discours », Voltaire évoque ses différends avec le destinataire de la missive. Le thème de la liberté d’expression, qui lui est si cher, y trouve une fois de plus sa place : « Je vois que vous m’avez pardonné d’avoir été d’une opinion qui n’était pas la vôtre, vous avez senti combien je devais être affligé autrefois et combien même je le suis encore (.) d’une cruauté inutile dont on ne peut se souvenir qu’avec horreur ». Peut-être Voltaire évoque-t-il ici une des affaires judiciaires dans lesquelles il s’est beaucoup impliqué ? Il poursuit : « Vous avez été plus sage que moi ; vous avez séparé cette barbarie des services rendus par ceux qui l’ont commise et moi j’ai tout confondu. Voilà comment les passions sont faites ». Le vieil écrivain ne peut s’empêcher de formuler une remarque acerbe tout à fait dans la ligne de son légendaire esprit critique : « Je remets à vos pieds l’ouvrage d’un jeune homme qui m’avait d’abord donné quelques espérance ; mais il n’a pas tenu ce qu’il promettait ».

Curioso trattato sui molteplici metodi di guarigione del corpo e della psiche. L'autore, dopo aver discettato della fisiologia umana in generale e delle forze fisiche, discorre dell'esercizio fisico, della corretta respirazione, del riso, dello starnuto, del restare fermo e del passeggiare, della corsa, del salto, del ballo, della lotta, "del fare alla palla", dell'andare a cavallo, del moto in carrozza, delle amache ("letti pensili") e delle culle, della navigazione, dell'andare in altalena, delle battiture (le percosse), dell'elettricità, della musica, "delle fregagioni", dei bagni freddi e caldi, del nuoto, ecc.

Lavater, Johann Caspar, Schriftsteller und Theologe (1741-1801).
O. O. u. D, 1775. Stich (84:135 mm), aufgezogen auf Kartonträger (125:160 mm) mit schwarzer Tuschumrahmung und roséfarbenem Originalkolorit. Die Berufungsszene des Paulus (Apg 9,3-7), hier montiert als physiognomisches Anschauungsmaterial und von Lavater überschrieben "Saullus". - 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.

Almanac:]
gedruckt bey Sophia Johanna Clauserin [.] []., Prag, 1775. 4to., pp. [56] 97 [1]. With eleven blank interleavings bound in. Title in red and black with pictorial border, further red and black printing in text, decorative borders throughout. Small zodiac and astronomical symbols at beginning. A very good copy in contemporary chocolate calf, finely decorated, crowned lion at centre of covers, traces of gilt, marbled pastedowns and endpapers all edges blue (few small wormoles to binding but very good). Title-page with two very small contemporary stamps, one a monogram, the other an armorial with a crowned lion, likely corresponding to the feature of the covers. Handsomely-bound almanac from Bohemia for the year 1776. It includes (sigs. D2v-F1r) an astrological report, (F1v-F2r) the Jewish calendar, (F2v-F4r) postal services, and (F4v-G2v) tables of exchange and interest. The 97 numbered pages list members of the noble families of Bohemia, from the dukes down, showing jobs and professions where they have them. These leading families may have provided a market for the almanac. This is shown in the present copy, where the supralibros, featuring lion with coronet, probably indicates that the copy came from a noble library. OCLC (01/18) shows no copies of almanacs in this series outside Germany. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Printed for T. Cadell, in the Strand, London, 1775. [2], 91, [1 blank] pp. Disbound and lacking the half title, title page lightly dusted, else Very Good Printed in the same year as the first edition, this pamphlet rebuts the "loud clamours" and "wild affections" of ingrates "who have denied to the parliament of Britain the right of taxing the American colonies." England, he says, has "the supreme power" to demand "such contributions as are necessary to the public safety or the public prosperity." Johnson mocks the colonists' myth that they "fled from tyranny to rocks and deserts," and that England should abandon "all claims of justice, and all sense of dignity, in compassion for a harmless people, who having worked hard for bread in a wild country.are now invaded by unprecedented oppression, and plundered of their properties by the harpies of taxation."

[Johnson Samuel]
for W. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1775. First edition. Issue with six line errata. 8vo, in a lovely binding of full contemporary polished calf, spine with simple and tasteful raised bands ruled in gilt and a red morocco label, gilt lettered. [3], 384. An especially fine copy, in completely original state with no repairs or restoration whatsoever, highly unusual with both the text and binding in such a fine state of preservation. With excellent provenance and fine baronial bookplate. FIRST EDITION IN A BEAUTIFUL STATE OF PRESERVATION. Johnson undertook this expedition at the ripe old age of 64, but it had its origin in a book, Martin's DESCRIPTION OF THE WESTERN ISLANDS OF SCOTLAND (1703), which his father gave him in his youth. "His attention was drawn to the anecdote of the man of St. Kilda, who thought that the high church of Glasgow had been carved out of a high rock, and had remarked that there were some in that island 'much higher'. This fascinated him and remained, while life lasted, in his mind.....His narrative of the journey was written in a more homely style than many of his previous publications, and it was not meant unkindly" (Courtney and Smith, pp. 118-9). Traditionally this is called the second issue of the first edition owing to the six versus the twelve line errata. It contains Johnson's final corrections (despite the presence of the errata leaf) and is the authorized text of the book.
