      W. Strahan and T. Cadell, London 1777 - (11 x 8 5/8 inches). Engraved portrait of Cook by J. Basire after Wm. Hodges, 63 engraved plates, maps and charts, 1 folding letterpress table. Expertly bound to style in half eighteenth century russia over period marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, red and black morocco lettering pieces in the second and fourth, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt Second edition of Cook's second voyage describing his attempt to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible in search for a southern continent. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilization and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century" (Printing and the Mind of Man p.135). "The success of Cook's first voyage led the Admiralty to send him on a second expedition, described in the present work, which was to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible in search of any southern continents . the men of this expedition became the first to cross the Antarctic Circle. Further visits were made to New Zealand, and on two great sweeps Cook made an astonishing series of discoveries and rediscoveries including Easter Island, the Marquesas, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Niue, the Tonga Islands, the New Hebrides, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, and a number of smaller islands. Rounding Cape Horn, on the last part of the voyage, Cook discovered and charted South Georgia, after which he called at Cape Town, St. Helena and Ascension, and the Azores . This voyage produced a vast amount of information concerning the Pacific peoples and islands, proved the value of the chronometer as an aid to finding longitude, and improved techniques for preventing scurvy" (Hill p.123) "This, the official account of the second voyage, was written by Cook himself . In a letter, dated June 22nd, 1776, to his friend Commodore William Wilson, Cook writes: - "The Journal of my late Voyage will be published in the course of the next winter, and I am to have the sole advantage of the sale. It will want those flourishes which Dr. Hawkesworth gave the other, but it will be illustrated and ornamented with about sixty copper plates, which, I am of the opinion, will exceed every thing that has been done in a work of this kind; . As to the Journal, it must speak for itself. I can only say that it is my own narrative ."' (Holmes pp.35-36). Beddie 1217; cf. Hill (2004) 358; cf. Holmes 24; cf.

        Philosophische Versuche über die menschliche Natur und ihre Entwickelung (Philosophical Essays on Human Nature and Its Development).

      M. G. Wiedmanns Erben und Reich, Leipzig 1777 - Volume 1: TP + [III]-xxxvi = Vorrede + XXXVIII- LVI = Inhalt + [1]-784; Volume 2: TP + [III]-XXVI = Inhalt + [1]-834 + [835]-[836] = Druckfehler (Misprints), Octavo. First Edition. This is Teten's major which was written while he was a professor at Kiel. Tentens was educated at the universities of Rostock and Copenhagen and was professor of philosophy and mathematics at the Univeristy of Keil from 1776 to 1789 - after which he embarked on a brilliant career as a senior financial official in Copenhagen.The present work "was an extended inquiry into the origins and structure of knowledge. [Tetens] distinguished three faculties of the human mind: understanding, free will and feeling of pleasures and pains. He stressed the independence of the third faculty from the first two. The three may be reducible to one, but if so, according to Tetens, we cannot know it Tetens discussed with great insight many other extremely complicated problems in metaphysics, ethics, the philosophy of education and the philosophy of language. His Philosophische Versuche exerted a tremendous influence on Kant when he was writing the Critique of Pure Reason, and the many similarities between their doctrines are evident. Teten's doctrines may be compared to Kant's even in their speculative power and importance." (EP, Vol. VIII, p. 96) Beautifully preserved contemporary full sheep bindings. Spines with five gilt-ruled raised bands and two contrasting gilt-lettered labels - titles C. L. S 1784" with an addition four lines of inked text in volume 1 describing the gift of the books. Scattered browning and foxing throughout but, make no mistake, these are absolutely gorgeous copies of this important and influential work. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

        Six Lessons from the Favourite Miscellaneous Quartetto's, Adapted for the Harpsichord... Price S7:6

      London: Willm. Napier [PN 67], 1777. First Edition. Rather scarce. OCLC nos. 931915401,16457555. BUC p. 933. RISM S2216. The "favourite Scotch Airs" to which Schroeter refers were perhaps adapted from his collection of 12 Favorite Scotch Songs for voice, harpsichord, and German flute or violin, which, according to RISM S2214, was also published by Napier (No. 67), ca. 1777. Schroeter';s importance lies, Burney wrote, in his being ?the first who brought into England the true art of treating [the piano]'; (Rees';s Cyclopaedia). His playing was not without bravura, and he astounded audiences by the graceful ease with which he performed rapid passage-work. Indeed the impression he made owed much to the delivery: ?His touch was extremely light and graceful so that just to watch him play became a pleasure in itself'; (Musikalisches Wochenblatt). His compositions helped to popularize in England a natural ?singing-allegro'; style and his concertos opp.3 and 5, which were among the earliest in England designed specifically for the piano, enjoyed particular success and influence. (Mozart was sufficiently impressed with op.3 to write cadenzas for three concertos.)" Ronald R. Kidd in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Disbound. 1f. (fine decorative engraved title), [1] (blank), 2-45, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Scored for flute or violin and harpsichord. Middle movements of each lesson with the first verse underlaid below flute part, and subsequent verses printed below music. With "N.B. To make this Work of more general use, the words are put to the middle Movements which are chiefly selected from the most favourite Scotch Airs" printed to lower margin of title. Early signature of "Miss Acton" in black ink to upper margin of title. Slightly worn; occasional light foxing and soiling; some very light dampstaining and worming to lower portions of pp. 21-27 and 35-45 respectively. Together with early manuscript verses from one of the collection's Scotch airs, "De'el tak the War" (a.k.a. "Deil tak' the wars") laid in. Octavo. 1 p. In black ink. With titling ("The Wars") to upper margin. Text in English, with significant variation from published versions, particularly in the second verse ("But my brave, my dearest Willy goes through every danger... Oh! Had he been to the Wars a stranger, from my arms he ne'er had gone").

        Journals of Congress, Containing the Proceedings from Sept. 5, 1774 to Jan. 1, 1776

      Philadelphia: R. Aitken, 1777. First edition. 8vo. (Short marginal tear on Qq2 just touching text.) Original boards, UNCUT (portions of backstrip lacking, some pale staining); quarter blue morocco slipcase. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION. The Journals were issued by the government's printers Robert Aitken, John Patterson, John Dunlap and David Claypoole and document the early history of the American republic, minutely recording its progression from an array of disparate and disgruntled colonies to armed resistence and outright rebellion, Independence, confederation, and eventually, unification under a remarkable Federal Constitution. The journals records the daily business of the Congress, and contain the most vital documents from the Revolutionary period through the end of the Confederacy, and culminates with the tumultuous adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. The bibliographical and textual importance of books preserved in original, unsophisticated state needs no elaboration, especially as some of the edition sizes were quite small (as few as 500 copies). The resolution of 13 September 1786, which was printed in volume 11, directs "That the Secretary of Congress take order for having printed and bound in the usual manner [boards?] five hundred volumes of the journals of Congress for each of the years 1777, 1778, 1780 and 1781 1782." The 12-page Index is not present at end of this copy--clearly issued without it at the time of publication. Soon after the Declaration of Independence, Congress recognized the necessity of publishing and disseminating its proceedings on a timely basis. These volumes appeared in more or less annual volumes, but in variable formats and from three different printers: Robert Aitken, John Dunlap, and David Claypoole. A tradition had already been established by the separate publication of the Journals from the First and Second Continental Congress in 1774 and 1775. This, the first volume in the series, began after the Declaration of Independence, reprinted those journals, and was issued concurrently with the second volume, both appearing from the press of Robert Aitken in 1777 (that volume includes the full text of the Declaration of Independence, and the names of the Signers, pp. 241-246).

Oeder was a German-Danish botanist, medical doctor, economist and social reformer, and the first director of the Danish Botanical Garden. As part of his job at the Botanical Garden he initiated this ambitious European botanical work, which was published over a 125-year period. It covers, in great detail, the plants of Norway, Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, portions of Northern Germany, and some Swedish flora. "The value of the work was in the accuracy and beauty of the plates made under his [Oeder's] supervision by Martin and Michael Rösssler and later, under the supervision of the Danish editors, by Christian F. Mueller (1748-1814) and Johann Theodor Bayer (1782-1873). The Rösslers together contributed some 600 plates, J.T. Bayer some 1,500 plates. Their figures unite great artistic excellence with utmost scientific exactness, so that they belong to the best of their kind" (Stearn, The Flora Danica: Its History and Illustrations).

Mit den ersten beiden Bänden des Romans "Leben und Ansichten von Tristram Shandy, Gentleman, der 1759 erschien, löste er einen Skandal aus. Nachdem er vier weitere Bände verfasst hatte, siedelte er für zweieinhalb jahre nach Frankreich über. Nachdem 1767 der neunte (und letzte) Band erschienen war, wandte sich Sterne einem weiteren Projekt zu "Der empfindsamen Reise". Er starb nur drei Monate nach Erscheinen an Tuberkulose. Tristram Shandy ist ein Roman, der aus einer Reihe von Skizzen besteht und teils unter der Maske des Yorick, eines Geistlichen und Humoristen, teils unter derjenigen des phantstischen Tristram vorgetragen wird. --- Wir akzeptieren VISA und MASTERCARD.

        1777 Revolutionary War Broadside, used as a wrapper for pamphlet, by one who ?marched on the alarm of Lexington? [Broadside] State of Massachusetts Bay. In the House of Representatives, August 15, 1777. [Chapter 259 - Resolve for Compleating This State?s Quota of The Continental Army], Legislative Records of the Council xxxviii, 10. Mass. Archives, ccxv., 58, 64-68. Whereas it appears, by returns made into the secretary?s office, that the proportion of the Continental army, directed to be raised in this state, is far short of being compleat.. Resolved, that the brigadier, or the commander of the brigade in each county of this state, shall.. Issue his orders to the colonel or commanding officer of each regiment in his brigade.. That they cause the several companies in each delinquent town .. to be called together..? [Boston, Printed by John Gill, 1777.] Broadside ([2] p.) [Evans 15436, Ford 2093.] [Pamphlet] Adams, Amos. Ministerial Affection Recommended: In a Sermon Preache

      Boston: John Gill/Thomas and John Fleet , 1777. First Edition. Pamphlet. Fair. Broadside having been wrapped about pamphlet, now unfolded, is fragmented: lacking about 2 inches from one half of the lower panel (thus half of 2 lines of text), and the center (once at spine of pamphlet) is chipped with some text loss. Needs restoration. Handwritten marginalia mentions Wilmington [Mass.]. The pamphlet is repeatedly signed Benjamin Jaquith, His Book (January 17, 1783) which establishes its early provenance and connection to Wilmington. Jaquith was respected by the Wilmington Community where he long served as a deacon in the Congregational Church, representing the town at the historic Middlesex Convention of 1774, and assisting in the War effort in various ways, including a short stint as an enlisted soldier when the Battle of Lexington first began (at 59 years old). Born June 27, 1716, married to Hannah Walker, daughter of Capt. Samuel and Hannah (Fowle) Walker of Woburn in July 1739. Hannah Jaquith died in Wilmington, Mass., February 20, 1801 at 82 years old. Deacon Benjamin Jaquith died in Wilmington August 29, 1801 at 85 years old. According to The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. LXI, 1907, page 252: On April 6, 1763 (Ensign Jonathan Jones) was commissioned ensign of Cap. Benjamin Jaquiths Company of Wilmington militia (Mass. Archives, vol. Xcix p30). On the fated morning of April 19, 1775, two companies of Minutemen started out on the road to Lexington very early in response to the alarum, one of them commanded by Captain Cadwallader Ford, the other by Captain Timothy Walker. Later another went out, commanded by Captain John Harnden. They fought at Lexington, Concord and Bunker Hill. The number of Wilmington men who fought in the Revolutionary War was 260, including 24 captains, several of whom rose to higher command. This indicates that nearly all the able-bodied men of Wilmington were engaged in the struggle for liberty. Source, American Insurance Agency.From the Muster Roll of Captain Timothy Walkers Co. of Wilmington, Mass. which marched in response to the alarm of Lexington April 19, 1775 were the following members of the Jaquith family: Sgt. James Jaquith (promoted to Capt.)John Jaquith, Jr. Son of Lt. John JaquithSamuel JaquithNathan JaquithDavid Jaquith Son of Lt.

        Histoire naturelle et mythologique de l'Ibis.Paris, Allais (back of half-title: Imprimerie de H.L. Perronneau), 1805. 8vo. With 6 engraved plates, including 4 hand-coloured (2 folding) by Bouquet after Redouté and Barraband. 19th-century dark red half sheepskin.

      Nissen, IVB 819; Ronsil 2718; Wood, p. 552. First and only edition of a natural and mythological history of the ibis by Marie Jules-César Lelorgue de Savigny (1777-1851). It contains six engravings after drawings by two major natural history illustrators: Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) and Jacques Barraband (1768-1809), of which four are hand-coloured. The book gives an account of the black and the white ibis, their mythical position in ancient Egypt and the related cults, their natural habitat and answers the question whether they eat snakes or not. The engravings show the black and the white ibis, close-ups from the beak and leg and some Egyptian illustrations. Barraband is well known for his beautiful ornithological illustrations for Levaillant's works on parrots and birds of paradise. "A learned essay on the Ibis, with observations made during the author's sojourn in Egypt. A rare book ..." (Wood). With a faint and somewhat blotted library stamp on half-title, title-page somewhat soiled, a few occasional small smudges, and plates shaved with slight loss of plate-numbers. Otherwise in good condition.

        Pair of Autograph Letters Signed as a Major-General of the Northern Department June 26, 1777 and June 29, 1777 to Major Christopher Peter Yates, Saratoga and Albany ¿ giving orders a week before the Siege of Ticonderoga

      - two letters, two pages, folio, paper tanned, some staining, old folds, some nicks and chips at edges, with some minor loss, separations at fold joints, else in good, legible condition. Inscribed on laid paper water-marked ¿OCR¿ a mark not found in Gravell. This pair of letters from General Philip Schuyler to Major Yates contains orders for the troops, including preparations, and various actions to be undertaken in the field, issued in late June the week before the Siege of Fort Ticonderoga the first week of July 1777. The 1777 Siege of Fort Ticonderoga occurred between July second and sixth 1777, near the southern end of Lake Champlain in the state of New York. Lieutenant General John Burgoyne's 8,000-man army occupied high ground above the fort, and nearly surrounded the defenses. These movements forced the occupying Continental Army, an under-strength force of 3,000 under the command of General Arthur St. Clair, to withdraw from Ticonderoga and the surrounding defenses. Some gunfire was exchanged, and there were some casualties, but there was no formal siege and no pitched battle. Burgoyne's army occupied Fort Ticonderoga and Mount Independence, the extensive fortifications on the Vermont side of the lake, without opposition on 6 July. Advance units pursued the retreating Americans. The uncontested surrender of Ticonderoga caused an uproar in the American public and in its military circles, as Ticonderoga was widely believed to be virtually impregnable, and a vital point of defense. General St. Clair and his superior, General Philip Schuyler, were vilified by Congress. Both were eventually exonerated in courts martial, but their careers were adversely affected. Schuyler had already lost his command to Horatio Gates by the time of the court martial, and St. Clair held no more field commands for the remainder of the war. Saratoga [June] 26, 1777 ¿Sir, As a body of the Enemy are encamped at Gilliland¿s creek on Lake Champlain, from whence they will probably send parties to harass us, I entreat you to keep a good Look out to send scouts continually Distance to the West and North West of your Garrison to make discoveries, and lest an attempt should be made to burn our vessels on Lake George I have ordered Commodore Wynkoop to get the guns in the vessel already launched that he may be in a condition of Defence.
