        Carte Nouvelle de L'Amerique Angloise contenant tout ce que les Anglois possedent sur le Continent de L'Amerique Septentrionale savoir le Canada, la Nouvelle Ecosse ou Acadie, les treize Provinces unies . avec la Floride .

      Augsburg 1776 - Copper engraved map, period hand-colouring. Lotter's attractive map of the British Colonies at the start of the Revoloutionary War, here with beautiful contemporary hand colouring Each of the thirteen Colonies is identified by name both on the map, and in the title. The title is placed within an attractive decorative border surmounted by the British Royal arms. The French title and nomenclature indicates that Lotter, a leading German mapmaker, intended this for the French market, as does the fact that he limits the claims of the British to the regions east of the Appalachian Mountains. The delineation of the thirteen "Provinces unies" is generally well done (although Maryland and Georgia are both strangely shaped): a number of locations are named in the Ohio Valley, including Logs Town, Twictwees, Ft. Du Quesne, Allegheny, Vinango, Buffaloons, Sandoski and Mingos. Some interesting details are also shown in the region of the Great Lakes. McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps 776.19; cf.

        Relacion del funeral entierro, y exequias de el Illmo. Sr. Dr. D. Manuel Rubio y Salinas, Arzobispo que fuè de esta Santa Iglesia Metropolitana de Mexico.

      Mexico: En la Imprenta del Real, y mas antiguo Colegio de S. Ildefonso Small 4to (20.5 cm; 8"). [5] ff., 155, [1] pp., fold. plt.. 1776 From January 1748 until his death in early July 1765 Manuel Rubio y Salinas served as archbishop of Mexico City, a period that coincided nicely with the rebirth of the Mexican mining industry and the creation of great wealth, new secular and ecclesiastical establishments, and a building boom in the viceregal capital. Rubio and the Church benefitted from the new wealth in significant material ways, but social justice concerns and religious duties were always high on the bishop's list of things requiring his attention, as demonstrated for example in => his leadership in securing the 1754 papal declaration making Our Lady of Guadalupe the patron saint of New Spain. When Rubio died, the entire viceregal capital turned its energy to commemorating him, much of which is summarized in this volume. It includes a Spanish-language account of the archbishop's last days, his death, and burial (pp. 1–87), followed by Pedro Jose Rodriquez de Arizpe's Latin-language funeral oration ("Maximum occidentis sidus. Ilmus, nempe d. doct. Emmanuel Josephus Rubio, et Salinas . . . In cujus solemni funere quinto idus octobris ann. MDCCLXV, declamabat p. doct. Petrus Josephus Rodriguez, et Arizpe," pp. 87–112), and ending with Cayetano Antonio de Torres's Spanish-language funeral sermon (pp. 115–51). The Spanish-language account of the burial includes a detailed description of the funeral monument (i.e., cenotaph) that the city erected for the archbishop, including the inscriptions and epigrams that were by F.J. Alegre. Following the last page of the text, there is => a large folding engraved plate by Manuel Villavicencio after the design of the monument by Miguel Cabrera, "pintor americano." The engraving is detailed, exquisite, and includes a measure of scale. => A good source for the study of Mexican colonial architecture, commemorative ceremonies, and treatment of and thinking about death. Contemporary vellum with remnants of ties; spine damaged with loss to hungry rodents not affecting paper. One short tear in margin of folding plate, well away from image. => A very clean, very good copy.

        Characteres Generum Plantarum, quas in itinere ad Insulas Maris Australis. collegerunt, descripserunt, delinearunt annis MDCCLXXII - MDCCLXXV.

      - Londini, B, White, T. Cadell, & P. Elmsly, 1776. 4to (276 x 220mm). pp. x, 2, viii, 150, (4), with 78 engraved plates. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gilt decorated spine with red gilt lettered label. A pioneer work on the botany of Australia and the South Pacific. The Forsters, father and son, had sailed as naturalists on Cook's second voyage, an enormous collection of new genera and species were collected."This work is botanically important as containing a large number of new generic and specific names relating to plants of Australia and Polynesia. It appears that in the preparation of this undertaking the Forsters were able to use the fine natural history library belonging to Sir Joseph Banks, and to seek the advice of his librarian Daniel Solander. Furthermore, they had free access to Banks and Solander collections made on Cook's first voyage (1768-71) to the Pacific, and to Solander's manuscripts' (Henrey II, p. 167).

        OBSERVATIONS ON THE NATURE OF CIVIL LIBERTY, THE PRINCIPLES OF GOVERNMENT, AND THE JUSTICE AND POLICY OF THE WAR WITH AMERICA. TO WHICH IS ADDED, AN APPENDIX, CONTAINING A STATE OF THE NATIONAL DEBT, AN ESTIMATE OF THE MONEY DRAWN FROM THE PUBLIC BY THE TAXES, AND AN ACCOUNT OF THE NATIONAL INCOME AND EXPENDITURE SINCE THE LAST WAR.

      London:: Printed for T. Cadell, in the Strand,. [1776]. [6], 128 pp, lacking the half title. Pages 32-48 are moderately spotted, mostly in the margins; otherwise a clean text. Later marbled wrappers bound into later half morocco and brown pebbled cloth [lightly rubbed, bookplate removed from front pastedown]. Good+. [offered with] ADDITIONAL OBSERVATIONS ON THE NATURE AND VALUE OF CIVIL LIBERTY, AND THE WAR WITH AMERICA: ALSO, OBSERVATIONS ON SCHEMES FOR RAISING MONEY BY PUBLIC LOANS; AN HISTORICAL DEDUCTION AND ANALYSIS OF THE NATIONAL DEBT; AND A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE DEBTS AND RESOURCES OF FRANCE. London: Printed for T. Cadell, in the Strand. 1777. xvi, 176 pp. Light spotting and toning to the title leaf. Bound a bit clumsily, with title leaf loosening, in modern two-toned cloth. Lacking the free endpapers. Good+. The first edition of each of these highly influential works. Of the 'Observations,' Church writes, "The encouragement derived from this book had no inconsiderable share in determining the American colonists to declare their independence." It "ranks next to Paine's Common Sense as the most often reprinted work of its time. It is said to have had considerable influence on the drafting of the Declaration of Independence" [Decker]. Advocating eloquently the Natural Rights theory of Liberty, Price warns, "There is nothing that requires more to be watched than power. There is nothing that ought to be opposed with a more determined resolution than its encroachment." In the separately-issued 'Additional Observations,' a "continuation" [Adams] of the 'Observations,' Price adheres to his embrace of Natural Rights and its axiom that government requires the "dominion of EQUAL LAWS, made with COMMON CONSENT and not... of ANY MEN OVER OTHER MEN." Of the War against America, "I cannot expect any other than a tragical and deplorable issue to this contest." The War "must shock the feelings and the reason of every considerate person; a war in which rivers of blood must be shed, not to repel the attacks of enemies, or to maintain the authority of government within the realm, but to maintain sovereignty and dominion in another world." From this perspective, he answers authoritatively each British argument favoring the War. Price also absolves the Colonists of responsibility for African Slavery. "It is not the fault of the Colonies that they have among them so many of those unhappy people. They have made laws to prohibit the importation of them; but these laws have always had a negative put upon them here because of their tendency to hurt our Negro trade." FIRST EDITIONS. Observations: Howes P586. Adams, American Independence 224a. Adams, American Controversy 76-118a. Church 1137 [Fifth Edition]. 31 Decker 21 [later London edition].

        AN ORATION DELIVERED AT THE STATE HOUSE, IN PHILADELPHIA, TO A VERY NUMEROUS AUDIENCE, ON THURSDAY THE 1st OF AUGUST 1776; BY SAMUEL ADAMS, MEMBER OF THE **** ********** THE GENERAL CONGRESS OF THE ****** ****** OF AMERICA.

      [London] Philadelphia, Printed. London, Re-printed:: For E. Johnson,. 1776. [2], 42 pp, as issued. Title leaf dusted, else Very Good in early quarter morocco and marbled boards. "Although this was published over Samuel Adams's name, there is no indication that he wrote it, or that there was a Philadelphia edition. It extols the merits of the newly independent colonies, but overtones suggest that it was actually written in England" [Adams]. Howes calls it "a London forgery designed to show that the colonies were bent on independence." Adams notes that excerpts from the pamphlet first appeared in the London Chronicle in mid-October 1776. A Dublin edition followed in the same year. The Revolutionary rhetoric certainly is genuinely Adams-like. "Our Fore-Fathers threw off the Yoke of Popery in Religion; for you is reserved the honor of leveling the popery of Politicks...The homage that is paid in some Countries to Monarchs and their favourites is disgraceful to humanity...In the judgment of Heaven there is no other superiority among men, than a superiority in Wisdom and Virtue."

First collected edition of these political pamphlets, published anonymously.Probably the most famous of the four is the last, 'Taxation no Tyranny; An Answer to the Resolutions and Address of the American Congress', a scathing attack on those 'zealots of anarchy' who have 'denied to the Parliament of Britain the right of taxing the American Colonies'. Bitterly opposed to the War of Independence, Johnson inveighs with a sustained denunciation which includes his famous quip 'If slavery be thus fatally contagious, how is it that we hear the loudest yelps for liberty among the drivers of negroes?'.

        Nuove osservazioni microscopiche.

      - Napoli, con Licenza de'Superiori, 1776. 4to (210 x 165mm). pp. viii, 135, (1), with 14 folded engraved plates. Contemporary half calf (ends of spine worn). First edition of an important and rare work on microscopy. Giovanni Maria della Torre (1710-1782) was an Italian scientist and corresponding member of the academies of Paris, Berlin and the Royal Society of London. He perfectioned the oculars of telescopes and succeeded, like Toricelli, in constructing powerful miscroscopes by using small glass globes. "Della Torre was a man of wide culture and of wide scientific curiosity. His studies led him into the history of philosophy, optics, and microscopy (he made several new histological identifications with an excellent compound microscope that he himself had built)". (DSB). The first 44 pages deal with the construction of different kinds of microscopes, illustrated with 2 detailed plates. The rest of the work deals with objects observed through the microscope.Provenance: Small oval stamp of Marcel Bekus on verso of title.Poggendorff II, 1118. [Attributes: First Edition]

The first 2 volumes comprise all the fruits with the exception of apples and pears, which appear in the third volume which was published 21 years later in 1801 and is often wanting. Mayer states in the introduction to the Pomona Franconica that he had first intended to produce only a catalogue raisonné of the different fruit cultivated in the court garden and to illustrate it with 'illuminated' copper-engravings, but that he was then persuaded by 'lovers of gardening' to write a systematic treatise on the cultivation of fruit trees.

        Recueil d'Edits, Arrêts, Déclarations, Lettres Patentes.

      1776 - 2 vol. in-4, veau havane marbré, dos orné à nerfs, pièces de titre en maroquin rouge et de tomaison en maroquin citron, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Important et remarquable recueil contenant 50 arrêts et édits passés sous le ministère Turgot, et ceux juste après sa chute (1776), année charnière pour la réforme du système économique et des institutions féodales de la France. « Là se trouve le progamme légitime de la Révolution » (A. Batbie). Cinq des principaux édits qui furent pour lui un triomphe éclatant et le prélude de sa chute sont présents : Edit du Roi Portant Suppression des Offices sur les Ports, Quais, Halles, Marchés & Chantiers de la Ville de Paris ; Edit du Roi, Par lequel Sa Majesté supprime les Corvées, & ordonne la confection des grandes Routes à prix d'argent ; Déclaration du Roi Par laquelle Sa Majesté, en abrogeant les Réglemens particulirs de Police sur lesquels l'Article V des Lettres Patentes du 2 Novembre 1774 avoit réservé à statuer, supprime tous les Droits établis dans la Ville de Paris sur les Bleds, Méteils, Seigles, Farines, Pois, Feves Lentilles & Ris, & modere les Droits qui subsistent sur les autres Graines & Grenailles ; Lettre Patente du Roi, Portant conversion & modération du droit sur les Suifs ; et celui qui fut l'acte majeur de son ministère, l'édit abolitif des jurandes et maitrises : Edit du Roi, Portant Suppression des Jurandes & Communauté, Arts & Métiers. On trouve aussi son dernier édit sur la libre circulation des vins dans tout le royaume, registré après sa chute, il passa presque inaperçu et ne fut pas abrogé. Le 4 août, Louis XVI appelle au Contrôle général Turgot (1727-1781) ancien Intendant de la Généralité de Limoges où il succède à l'abbé Terray. Turgot n'a jamais participé directement au gouvernement mais ses idées financière et économique très libérales, son hostilité au parlement et son désir de réformes profondes sont bien connues. Dès le 13 septembre il fait prendre un arrêt rétablissant la liberté du commerce des grains à l'intérieur du royaume. En mai 1775, la révolte des blés amenuise son crédit déjà détérioré par l'opposition, des parlements, de la cour et du clergé, à celui qui est perçu comme représentant les savants et philosophes dont il favorise les projets. En 1776, l'opposition se déchaîne, les financiers se doutent que Turgot veut supprimer la gabelle et casser ensuite le bail de la ferme. Le projet de reconnaissance civile des protestants a indigné le clergé ; le projet de réforme de la Maison du roi a soulevé toute la cour ; Turgot sera renvoyé le 12 mai. Le tome II contient les principaux édits du nouveau Contrôleur général Clugny, dont la Loterie, à laquelle Turgot s'était opposé de toutes ses forces, le rétablissement partiel des Jurandes et le rétablissement de la Corvée.
