Paris, Debure, l'auteur, 1775. ____ Première édition. Elle est illustré par 4 belles gravures sur cuivre sur deux planches dépliantes. L'abbé de La Chapelle (1710-1792) mathématicien, est l'inventeur du mot scaphandre : (du grec, scaphos pour barque ou bateau et andros pour l'homme). C'est un habit de toile, de cuir et de liège qui permet de se déplacer à la surface de l'eau. L'auteur en fit lui-même la démonstration sur la Seine. "Cette espèce de cuirasse permet de faire à la nage toutes sortes de manoeuvres comme de manger, boire, lire, écrire, combattre, charger le fusil ou le pistolet, tirer, chasser, pêcher, se sauver des naufrages, sans jamais pouvoir couler au fond, calfater un vaisseau en pleine mer, ou l'y radouber, faire passer à un corps de troupes, sans ponts, sans bateaux, sans radeaux & surtout sans bruit, les plus grands fleuves et les plus rapides, lui faciliter une descente par mer, sur une côte ou sur une terre..." Exemplaire aux armes du marquis de Mailly : Augustin-Joseph de Mailly (1708-1794), commandant en chef en Roussillon et maréchal de France, participa à de nombreuses batailles lors des guerres de Louis XV et finit guillotiné après avoir défendu Louis XVI. Olivier pl. 2043 attribue ce fer à son oncle Victor-Alexandre, mais celui-ci étant mort en 1754, ce fer n'a pu être utilisé que par Augustin-Joseph de Mailly, à qui Olivier attribue trois autres fers, dont le premier est très similaire à celui-ci (pl. 2044).

MARRA, John].
London F. Newbery, 1775. First edition. 8vo., xiii, [1], 328 pp., folding map, 5 engraved plates, contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt lettered "5" on spine, neat repairs to extremities, modern cloth box, red morocco label, an excellent copy. the first published account of Cook's second voyage and the first printed account of the first crossing of the Antarctic Circle. Appearing anonymously eighteen months before the official account, Marra's Journal records many incidents omitted by Cook and gives the reasons which caused Sir Joseph Bankand his twelve assistants to withdraw from the expedition at the last moment. Marra was a gunner's mate of Irish descent aboard the Resolution. He attempted to desert, unsuccessfully, at Tahiti, prompting Cook to remark later: "I know not if he might not have obtained my consent if he had applied for it in proper time." Marra himself recounts his punishment in irons. This edition was apparently intended to form vol.5 of A historical account of all the voyages round the world, performed by English navigators, volumes1-4 of which, by David Henry (who edited the present account), were published in 1773-74. Hence the number "5" on the spine. Hill 1087; Holmes 16; Rosove 214.A1; Sabin 16247. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Lettre autographe signée à la troisième personne, 23 pluviôse an 11 (12 février 1803), à l’écrivain Charles Palissot de Montenoy, 1 page in-12, adresse. « Le sénateur Lucien Bonaparte à l’honneur de remercier le cn (citoyen) Palissot de son attention à lui envoyer un exemplaire de ses Mémoires pour servir à la littérature. Il regrette qu’une indisposition l’ait privé du plaisir de le recevoir de sa main. Ce 23 pluviôse an 11 » Dans cette lettre, Lucien Bonaparte mentionne Mémoires pour servir à l’histoire de la littérature depuis François Ier jusqu’à nos jours qui était paru en 1771. Palissot (1730-1814) avait été un disciple de Voltaire. Néanmoins, il s’opposa violemment à Diderot et aux encyclopédistes (il est considéré comme un opposant à la philosophie des Lumières). Il est connu principalement pour sa pièce Les Philosophes (1760) dans laquelle il tourna au ridicule les principaux penseurs des lumières.

Qualitativement, elles sont toutes largement tributaires de Ziméo [ ]. Saint-Lambert s'accordait à la sensibilité d'époque et faisait leur part aux utilités de convention : bon colon, jeunes fiancés malheureux, schéma d'une rébellion. Mais il intégrait ces divers éléments à une intrigue dont l'axe et le message demeuraient la volonté du noir de vivre libre." (Régis Antoine, Les écrivains français et les Antilles, pp. 153-154)."Suite au récit propre, l'auteur ajoute des "réflexions sur les nègres" anti-esclavagistes auxquelles les Ephémérides du citoyen de Dupont de Nemours donneront une large publicité approbatrice en ajoutant à l'appui un argument économique semblable à celui que développera Condorcet dans ses Réflexions sur l'esclavage des Nègres de 1781."

Contemporary calf, spine with gilt devices and red morocco label (nicely repaired but spine and part of upper cover darkened), very good, clean copies. Early signature of J. Tice on half-title and small book label of James K. Welch on front free endpaper. [1] See James, Studies in the history of ophthalmology in England, p.113: ".He gives a good description of the anatomy of the parts and with regard to the treatment of lachrymal obstruction lays down three varieties of the disease." Not in the Becker catalogue.[2] See G&M 3424.2: ?Probably the greatest English classic of colon-rectal surgery. Pott recommended the practice of simple division rather than the newer, more complicated methods proposed by Cheselden and Le Dran, and audaciously pointed out that there were lessons which regular practitioners might learn from quacks apropos of this subject.?.
