        Ceiling, in the Etruscan Taste, Executed in the Countess of Derby's Dressing Room

      London, 1777. Copper engraving with lovely early colour. Engraved by B. Pastorini. In excellent condition. An elegant engraving depicting the beautiful ceiling designs in the countess of Derby's dressing room in her celebrated house in Grosvenor Square, London. Robert and his brother James Adam forever changed the face of British architecture by introducing innovative Classical design ideas. From 1754-57, Robert lived in Italy where he had a long productive friendship with Piranesi, which was inspirational for both men. Adam's first book, on Diocletian's palace in Dalmatia, is clearly very like the archaeological investigations Piranesi was making at the same time of similar ruins. Piranesi's friendship and passion for Roman Classicism were seminal influences on Adam, and the greatest single factor, other than his own talent, in the work Adam produced on his return to England. Upon his return, the brothers launched their career by building the Adelphi from the Thames to the Strand in London, which although not a commercial success at the time, included one of London's most cherished buildings, the Adlephi Theatre. Together, the Adam brothers designed and built some of the most famous buildings in England, including such bastions of English architecture as Kenwood House, Keddlestone Manor, and Syon House. To the interiors of their English country houses, the Adams brought wonderful ornamental elements in niches, lunettes, festoons and reliefs. Their classically designed buildings were so numerous in London that they changed the prevailing feel of the city and established their brand of neo-Classicism as the model of elegance and importance. It is asserted that the brothers originated the concept of the uniform facade attached to the typical English row house, an architectural device that distinguishes London buildings. This monumental contribution is evidenced in the Adams' designs for Portland Place and Fitzroy Square, and these were used as architectural models for the whole city. The brothers brought their talents into other areas by designing furniture to complement their beautiful interiors and by creating and publishing a treatise of design entitled 'Works in Architecture'. The work was published in three volumes over an extended span of time, beginning in 1773, with the final volume being published posthumously in 1822. Cf. Brunet I.47; cf. Lowndes I, p.8; DNB; Wilton-Ely, The Mind and Art of Giovanni Battista Piranesi.

        The Pleasures of Solitude

      London: F. Vivares in great Newport Street, 1777. Colour-printed mixed method engraving. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark. Small tear in lower left corner, and another small tear on bottom margin. Image size: 10 9/16 x 8 1/4 inches. A lovely impression of this famous print by Louis-Marin Bonnet, one of the most celebrated masters of French colour-printing. The son of a Parisian stocking manufacturer, Louis-Marin Bonnet (1736-1793) trained with the engravers Louis-Claude LeGrand and Jean-Charles François, the latter the inventor of the chalk-manner technique of printmaking. Throughout his career Bonnet developed Francois's printing technique producing some of the most beautiful prints of the period. Bonnet's chalk-manner prints became immensely popular with collectors seeking images that imitated the subtle effects of drawing, but he also experimented with various forms of colour printing as seen in this charming print of a young lady playing the guitar. During the late 1770s and 1780s, Bonnet's success as a color printmaker was unrivaled and hence he counted among his patrons the wealthiest Parisian collectors of the time. This spectacular print exemplifies the single plate colour printing technique developed in England, but quickly adopted by French engravers. The effect is achieved by inking a single plate with several different colours by using a rag stump, this process is known as a la poupée. These English colour prints became very popular in Paris and threatened to affect the market for French prints. In an effort to capitalize on this vogue for English prints, a few clever French engravers printed their own colour prints with London addresses. This charming image is just such a print; Bonnet published it with F. Vivares's address in London, although it was probably published in Paris. He also uses a different variation on his name and lists himself as L. Marin instead of Louis-Marin Bonnet. This is not only an exquisite image, from one of the most renowned French engravers, but a fascinating glimpse at the practices of the print market in France.

        The Province of New Jersey, Divided into East and West, commonly called the Jerseys

      London: Wm. Faden, 1777. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, on two joined sheets, in very good condition. The first state of one of the finest and most celebrated maps of New Jersey, made during the Revolutionary War This elegant composition depicts New Jersey in finely engraved detail at a large scale of 7 miles to an inch. The map was the grandest representation of the state made up to that time, taking in the entire breadth of the state, as well as the Hudson Valley, most of Long Island, eastern Pennsylvania and all of Delaware Bay. It captures the state's rich topography, including the Jersey Highlands and the Palisades in the north and the broad Pine Barrens and coastal marshes in the south. The county divisions, major roads and towns are all carefully depicted, indicating that New Jersey was, by the standards of the time, heavily populated, having over 120,000 inhabitants. Faden based his rendering of the state largely on the manuscript works of Bernard Ratzer, a British military surveyor most famous for his map of New York City. Ratzer's rendezvous with New Jersey cartography stemmed from the resolution of the bitter boundary dispute between that state and New York that had raged for over a century. In 1764, George III charged Samuel Holland and William De Brahm with settling the boundary, and their demarcation was finally surveyed by Ratzer in 1769. Ratzer's line is noted on the map as "The boundary settled by commissioners in 1769". Two of Ratzer's New Jersey manuscripts, one dealing with the boundary question, and another featuring Monmouth and Ocean Counties are today preserved in the Faden Collection at the Library of Congress. Faden supplemented Ratzer's work with surveys of the northern part of the state made by Gerard Bancker. Curiously, it seems that Bancker's work found its way to Faden, by way of John Murray, the Earl of Dunmore, the former governor of Virginia, who was given a draft by Bancker when he stopped in at New York on his way back to London. An interesting feature present on the map are the two lines bisecting the state, being the boundary lines between the archaic colonies of East and West Jersey. In 1664, Charles II granted the New Jersey charter jointly to Lord Berkeley and Sir George Carteret. Berkeley sold his share to John Fenwick, a Quaker who, in turn, passed it on to a consortium that included William Penn. The king elected to renew only Carteret's charter to the colony, and from 1676 the already small province was split into two awkward colonies. One of the lines present on this map is "Keith's Line" referring to the 1687 demarcation of the boundary by surveyor George Keith. While the two colonies were reunited under a royal governor in 1702, certain private land ownership questions predicated on the partition necessitated that an internal line of division persist, which was re-demarcated as the "Lawrence Line" in 1743. The map is embellished with a very fine cartouche, formed by trees framing a bucolic scene inhabited by farm houses and raccoons. The lower left of the map is adorned with a table of astrological observations. This copy is an excellent example of this important map, featuring a strong impression and good margins. In a careful original hand, New Jersey, and its internal boundaries have been outlined in pink, while surrounding jurisdictions are outlined in a yellow-green hue.

        A Topographical Map of the North Part of New York Island, Exhibiting the Plan of Fort Washington, now Fort Knyphausen, with the Rebels Lines to the Southward, which were Forced by the Troops under the Command of the Rt. Honble. Earl Percy, on the 16th Novr 1776, and Survey'd immediately after by Claude Joseph Sauthier. To which is added the Attack made to the Northd. By the Hessians. Survey'd by Order of Lieut. Genl. Knyphausen

      London: Published by Permission of the Rt. Honble. The Commissioners of Trade & Plantations by Wm. Faden, 1777. Copper-engraved map, with period outline colour. Some light old surface soiling. Sheet size: 22 1/2 x 15 1/8 inches. This is one of a small handful of Revolutionary War battle plans that relate to the City of New York. Sauthier's delineation of upper Manhattan was the most accurate and detailed to date. After the British occupation of New York, General Washington evacuated Manhattan, except for Fort Washington at the northern tip of the island. The British under General Howe moved north and attacked the main American army at White Plains in October 1776. But the Americans still remained in control of Fort Washington behind their forward lines. On November 16, the British mounted a six-column attack on the fort that forced the patriots to surrender. Washington's decision not to evacuate Fort Washington was one of his most serious tactical errors of the war. Almost three thousand men were taken prisoner and the British seized large quantities of supplies and weapons. Four days later General Cornwallis was sent to take Fort Lee on the opposite New Jersey shore, but the Americans stationed there had retreated. Sauthier illustrated the four phases of the attack with the letters A through D. The key at right identifies the first attack as that by Gen. Knyphausen, the second by Matthews and Cornwallis, the third as a feint, and the fourth by Lord Percy.

        A Topographical Chart of the Bay of Narraganset in the Province of New England with all the Isles contained therein, among which Rhode Island and Connonicut [sic] have been particularly surveyed ... To which has been added the Several works and batteries raised by the Americans ..

      London: William Faden, 1777. Engraved map, dissected into 16 sections at a contemporary date, linen-backing renewed (expert restoration at the corners). Rare first edition of Blaskowitz's famed Revolutionary War map of Narragansett Bay published by Faden. Charles Blaskowitz arrived in America in the early 1760s as a young but evidently skilled surveyor and began work in upstate New York and along the St. Lawrence River. In March 1764, he was commissioned as part of Samuel Holland's North American Survey team and would eventually become Holland's Deputy Surveyor by 1775. Blaskowitz's first assignment was to survey Aquidneck Island and Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island in order to determine whether Newport would be a suitable location for a naval base. Blaskowitz accomplished that 1764 survey and a base was recommended, though was not established at that time. A decade later, Blaskowitz re-surveyed the region as part of Holland's larger surveys of the coast being accomplished for the Board on Trade and Plantations. By that time, the colonies were already on the brink of Revolution. Newport, in particular, was a hotbed of insurrection. In 1772, British naval ships laid siege to Narragansett Bay in order to enforce customs duties on incoming vessels. After months of antagonizing the city's merchants, the much-hated British captain of the HMS Gaspee was murdered and the ship burned. The region instantly became a point of great interest in Great Britain, with the King offering a reward for the capture of the insurrectionists. In May 1776, Rhode Island would become the first British Colony to declare its independence; the British would occupy Newport from November of that year until the end of August 1778. "It is certain that the British, after occupying Newport at the end of 1776, used this map for their operations in this pivotal area. The detail shown is remarkable, including even the names of farmers on their land locations" (Nebenzahl). The map itself is unusual in that it is a combination of a nautical chart and topographical map (and hence the title, "A Topographical Chart..."). The Bay is clearly shown with its many islands and intricate inlets, with numerous soundings which give accurate readings of the treacherous waters. On the shore, impressive detail is depicted, with individual farms named and elegant hachuring showing elevations. Eight batteries are shown via lettered references, with a key at the top right corner which details the numbers and types of canons. Along the right side of the map are the names of the principal land owners of the region, along with a brief description of the area. A large and well-designed dedication by Faden to Lord Percy appears just below. Blaskowitz's surveys would be used for two printed charts, by Des Barres and Faden respectively. The Faden chart was a much more accomplished production, on a larger sheet and more elaborately engraved (and according to Pedley, costing two and a half times as much at the time of publication). The map was sold separately, as this sectioned case map copy, or within some copies of Faden's North American Atlas .

        British Dominions in America agreeable to the Treaty of 1763: Divided into the several Provinces and Jurisdictions

      London: Andrew Dury, 1777. Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Dissected into 16 sections and linen-backed as issued. Inset of the tip of Florida. Rare Revolutionary-war separate issue of Kitchen's map of North America. This map, in various forms, was issued by Kitchin following the French and Indian War and into the 1780s. Kitchen, who engraved the Mitchell map, closely follows that famed mapping, though in a reduced form. The colonies are shown from Labrador in the North to Florida in the south, and as far west as the other side of the Mississippi, which is marked "Extensive Meadows full of Buffaloes." This copy is a rare separately-issued example in case map format. A similar map by Kitchen would appear in 1780 and 1782 editions of Guthrie's New System of Modern Geography (See McCorkle 780.6), though with the inset border and cartouche changed. We find only the Clements Library copy of this rare war-dated separate issue. Not in Phillips, A List of Maps of America or McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps.

        The British Colonies in North America. Engraved by William Faden, M.DCCLXXVII

      [London]: Faden, 1777. Copper-engraved map with full original colour. The Parent Plan of Faden's extraordinary sequence of maps of the United States Faden's sequence of maps of the United States represents one of the most important cartographic depictions of the newly independent republic. The present map, made at the beginning of the Revolution, is the first of what would be fourteen total appellations (this and thirteen subsequent issues), and is one of the extremely rare first five appellations of this series which almost never appear on the market. The Faden sequence comprises a critical and fascinating series of historical documents regarding the political development of the United States, especially since each issue captures a distinct stage in America's process of transformative change. Faden was the mapmaker most closely involved in the cartographical representation of the events of the war, as his great battle plans attest, and this map provided a broad view of the contested land. It is one of the few of the large number of his publications that he engraved himself. Much of the geography derives from John Mitchell's great 1755 map, of which Faden was to published the 5th edition in 1778. A number of corrections and improvements have been made, all of Florida is depicted. But the greatest change in the political geography of the Colonies and what makes this map so extraordinarily interesting is the greatly enhanced Province of Quebec, which has spilled down to the Ohio River. This was the result of the Quebec Act of 1774, in which Parliament established one vast colony of the formerly French possessions. The authors of the Declaration of Independence chose to view this as quite an ominous gesture, saying: "For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies." The British justification was that having one province enjoying uniformity in its laws and governance would be much more efficient. Britain maintained that its primary interest was trading for furs in that region. They may have also seen this monolithic mechanism as a way of elevating the Quebec colony out of the reach of the ever complaining, land-hungry American colonists. And without acknowledging this, the British surely knew that the new colony made the contentious thirteen look very small indeed. In fact, Quebec Province was inhabited primarily by Native tribes. Its French residents were indifferent to both sides in the American conflict, and there were very few English people. The threat is much more imposing on a map than it was in fact. The region below Lake Erie and west and north of the Ohio, the Old Northwest, remained an issue between the Americans and British long after the war had ended. Faden, like his predecessor Jefferys and contemporary Des Barres, made notably readable and concise maps. It was an age that believed in the possibility of certainty. Correctness in speech, conduct, fashion, painting and in every other way including cartography was commonly regarded as an attainable goal.

        Ceiling of the Music Room

      London, 1777. Copper engraving. Engraved by T. Morris. In excellent condition with the exception of a small area of foxing in the sheet. An elegant engraving of the elaborate ceiling in the music room of Sir Watkin Williams Wynn's celebrated house in St. James' Square, London. Robert and his brother James Adam forever changed the face of British architecture by introducing innovative Classical design ideas.

        A Sketch of the Operations of His Majesty's Fleet and Army Under the Command of Vice Admiral the Rt. Hble. Lord Viscount Howe and Gen./Sr.Wm. Howe, K.B. in 1776

      [London]: Des Barres, 1777. Copper-engraved and etched map with aquatint, hand-coloured, on watermarked: "Bates" laid paper. (Expertly repaired tears). A magnificent 1777 map of the sites of the Revolutionary War battles in and around New York City Des Barres' "Sketch" depicts the entire field of action for the latter half of 1776 in the battle for control of New York City and the Hudson River. The map, extending from Sandy Hook to Haverstraw, and Jamaica Bay to the western New Jersey establishes in detail the geographical setting for the war as it took place in this region, showing troop positions and strengths, fortifications and battle sites, as well as carefully delineated topographical details, roads, towns, even houses; shoals, banks, soundings in the bay and on the rivers; warships up and down the East River and Hudson. The sites of various embarkations and one of the first American Naval battles: the fire-ship attack on the Phoenix and the Rose are shown. The map also includes an inset of References, which is an index of all the major events from the initial invasion up to and including the battle at Fort Washington. After being forced to evacuate Boston, General Howe brought his army down to Staten Island for an assault on Brooklyn and New York. Howe and his brother, Admiral Richard Howe, built an armada, the largest British invading force in history to that point in time. The Continental Congress had determined that Washington should defend New York, despite the fact that he was outnumbered and his troops inexperienced. It is very much to Washington's credit that though he lost this sequence of battles, he did not lose the war. With the exception of the mistaken defense of Fort Washington, where 2,800 men surrendered, Washington kept his army intact to fight again. This was Howe's biggest chance as most of the Continental Army was at New York. The British invasion began on August 27, 1776 on the southwest end of Long Island. It was, from the British point of view, highly successful, by the end of August 29th, the Americans appeared to be trapped in Brooklyn Heights. However, the Americans quietly and famously escaped, fleeing up Manhattan, while the British slowly pursued them. Washington then left Manhattan for Westchester where he evaded the British until they met in White Plains. There Howe fought a tepid battle and was not able or unwilling to inflict the kind of blow that might have ended the war. After Washington withdrew, Howe returned to Manhattan to take Fort Washington. Cornwallis occupied Fort Lee on the opposite shore. Washington withdrew to New Jersey and then crossed the Delaware to Pennsylvania. These are the events that took place on the geographical setting handsomely portrayed in this fine map. "One of the greatest of the 'Atlantic Neptune' charts, with the best topographical information on the lower Hudson River valley, western Long Island and Staten Island," according to Nebenzahl. Considering the large, elephant folio scope of the map, it is incredibly precise and well-informed. As with Des Barres' greatly esteemed sea charts, this map brings to the study of military events his apparently inexhaustible capacity for detail. The Atlantic Neptune was the first British sea atlas of the North American colonies, and due to Des Barres' synergy of great empirical accuracy with unrivalled artistic virtue, it is considered to be one of the most important achievements of eighteenth-century cartography. Upon the conclusion of the Seven Year's War, Britain's empire in North America was greatly expanded, and this required the creation of a master atlas featuring new and accurate sea charts for use by the Royal Navy. Des Barres was charged with this Herculean task, publishing the first volume in London in 1775, which was soon followed by further volumes. Des Barres' monumental endeavor eventually featured over two-hundred charts and aquatint views, many being found in several states. This is the only known state of the map. This copy with the land elements with original wash colour, the water elements with later colour. Provenance : The Captain "Larry" Sneden house is located in legendary Snedens Landing on the western bank of the Hudson River. The house, an authentic Dutch colonial, was built at an historically important point both before and after the American Revolution. A ferry ran from Dobb's Ferry on the Westchester side to Snedens Landing from the early 1700's through the early1960's. Washington and his troops crossed here during the early days of the Revolution.

        Essays . sur la recherche de la cause pour laquelle l'estain et le plomb augmentent de poids quand on les calcine. Nouvelle édition revue sur l'exemplaire original & augmentée sur les manuscrits dela Bibliothèque du Roi, & des Minimes de Paris, avec des notes, par M. Gobet.

      Paris, Ruault, 1777 - 8vo (198 x 115 mm), pp xxxii 216, with two engraved plates in text; printed on blue paper, a fine copy in contemporary French mottled calf, corners worn, presentation inscription on front free endpaper 'Pres. de M. Almquist Chr[istians]borg'. £2850Second edition; the first (Bazas 1630) is known in only a few copies and is unobtainable. This was the first work to identify the role of air in the increase of weight of metals in calcination, thereby anticipating Lavoisier by some 150 years; it also refuted the phlogiston theory.'His fame rests solely on his Essays ., a reply to apothecary Pierre Brun's request for an explanation of why tin and lead increased in weight when heated. The "heaviness" of air explained the increased weight on calcination; it resulted from the attachment of air that had been rendered denser, heavier, and in some measure adhesive by the vehement and long-continuing heat of the furnace. Ray's only experiment appears in the sections of the Essays dismissing other possible explanations for the weight increase.'The Essays created some contemporary reaction, but its intrinsic interest lies in its anticipation of Lavoisier's recognition in 1772 that calcination involves combination with air. In 1775 Pierre Bayen drew attention to the Essays, and Lavoisier initially believed the work to be a forgery. Later, however, he spoke of it with admiration' (DSB).The publication of this edition was the result of Pierre Bayen's discovery of the first edition in 1775. The editor Gobet added to the original text the correspondence of Rey and Mersenne, Moitrel d'Elément's essay on air and water and Chérubin d'Orléans' dissertation on the impermeability of glass.Cole 1111; Duveen p 505; Hoover 683; Partington II pp 631-6

        Plan, Elevation, and Profile of an Organ in the Music Room

      London, 1777. Copper engraving. Engraved by Dom. Gunego. In excellent condition. An elegant engraving of a large organ in the music room at Sir Watkin Williams Wynn's celebrated house in St. James' Square, London.

The work was published in three volumes over an extended span of time, beginning in 1773, with the final volume being published posthumously in 1822. Cf. Brunet I.47; cf. Lowndes I, p.8; DNB; Wilton-Ely, The Mind and Art of Giovanni Battista Piranesi.

Fabricius was one of the most famous pupils of Linnaeus and greatly increased the knowledge of entomology. "His enormous importance lies in his descriptions, his grouping into genera, and his systematizing based on the mouthparts of which he says in a Danish paper (1790) that it is reasonable that they mark the most natural genera, since they must be built up according to the nourishment of every insect and their biology is dependent on their nourishment" (Smith, History of Entomology p. 111).Provenance: Name of Carl von Heyden on title.Horn-Schenkling I, 6196; Evenhuis p. 246.

III. The history of the martyrdom of the Maccabees; and the wars of the Jews with the neighbouring nations till the final destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman power. IV. Account of Philo's ambassy from the Jews of Alexandria, to the Emperor Caius Caligula.

      London: Pr. for Fielding & Walker by Henri Lion 4to (27.2 cm, 10.75"). 2 vols. I: Frontis., 719, [1] pp. (lacking list of subscribers); 44 (1 fold.) plts., 7 maps (1 fold.). II: Frontis., [2], 644, [28 (index)] pp.; 16 (of 17) plts.. 1777–78 First edition, "Newly Translated from the Original Greek, by Ebenezer Thompson, D.D. and William Charles Price, L.L.D." Josephus (b. A.D. 37) provides one of the very few non-biblical sources of Jewish history; the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, though noting the author's lack of prestige among Talmudic rabbis and his tendency to "omit and add" where he saw fit, says, "Writing a history of the Jews which non-Jews would read and believe, Josephus was an innovator in bringing together references to the Jews to be found in non-Jewish histories" (1942 ed., VI, 200). The 1910 edition of the Catholic Encyclopedia adds that these works are "our only sources for many historical events . . . the value of the statements is enhanced by the insertion of dates which are otherwise wanting, and by the citation of authentic documents which confirm and supplement the Biblical narrative." The two volumes are illustrated with a total of => 69 copper-engraved plates (out of 70 called for), including a number of maps, all engraved by several different hands after the work of various artists. Period-style quarter mottled calf with marbled paper–covered sides, leather edges blind-tooled, spines with gilt-stamped leather title-labels and gilt-stamped compartment decorations. Front fly-leaf of vol. II with 19th-century inked gift inscription. Vol. I lacking list of subscribers; vol. II lacking one plate ("The Death of Caius Caesar"). Light to moderate spotting and staining throughout; some offsetting to and around plates. One leaf torn from outer edge, narrowly missing text. => A sound, handsome set fine for working or playing with.

The vastly superior British forces were in pursuit, looking for the opportunity to annihilate the disorganized American army and effectively snuff out the American rebellion in a single blow. The campaign involved complex amphibious landings by the British in the Bronx and Westchester, reprising the type of maneuvers that led to the overwhelming success of the British in the Battle of Brooklyn the previous month.

        Disertacion apologetica a favor del privilegio, que por costumbre introducida por la Bula de la santa cruzada goza la Nacion Española en el uso de los oratorios domesticos, leida, en la Real Academia de buenas letras de Sevilla en 25. de octubre de 1771.

      En Sevilla: Por D. Josef Padrino Small 4to (18.5 cm; 7.25"). [1] f., 104 pp.. [colophon, 1777] Our author was the "cura mas antiguo del Sagrario de [Sevilla], examinador Synodal de su arzobispado, comisario y revisor de libros del Santo Oficio, academico numerario," and the "censor de dicha Real Academia." His work was. first read before the Real Academia on 25 October 1771 but because of delays in obtaining the necessary licenses to print it, publication was delayed until 1777. In this work of canon law and Catholic Church customs and practices, Baquero studies the privilege that the Bull of the Holy Crusade granted the Spanish nation regarding oratories in private residences; it applied not only to Spain but to colonies as well. The first of three, this edition was published by "un amigo del author." The other editions appeared in 1781 AND 1861. Only one U.S. library reports ownership of either the 1777 or 1781 edition. It should be noted that there is NO 1771 edition, despite Palau and online cataloguing; cataloguers have simply failed to look at the last page of the supposed 1771 edition to see that the colophon is dated 1777. This offers one very pretty large initial and some modestly nice work with type ornaments. Contemporary limp vellum, a bit missing from back cover; evidence of ties, and binding with light dust-soiling. Lacking rear free endpaper. A clean, nice copy.

        Der chursächsische Finanz=Staat, in der neuesten Zeit, mit einem historischen Anhange

      Halle, Joh.Jac. Curt 1777 - Ein Band in kl. 4to.; (4), 232 Seiten, zahlreiche Tabellen im Text davon 3 gefaltet; Halbleder der Zeit auf 5 Bünden, gesprenkelte Deckel mit Lederecken, Rückenvergoldung und goldgeprägtes Rückenschild, ein kleines Wurmloch im Rückenleder, gering berieben, roter Schnitt, Innenseite der Deckel mit marmoriertem Bezug, nur vereinzelt geringe Bräunung, sonst sauber und frisch, ein sehr gutes Exemplar. Erste und einzige Ausgabe, sehr selten. Es handelt sich um einen Abdruck aus dem Magazin für neuere Historie und Geographie, zu dem Büsching bedeutende politisch-statistische Beiträge lieferte. Anton Friderich Büsching (1724-1793) war Theologe, Professor für Philosophie sowie Historiker und Geograph. In seiner Vorrede schreibt er: "Diese Nachrichten von dem chursächsischen Finanzstaat in der neuesten Zeit stehen im elften Theil meines Magazins: man hat aber geglaubet, daß es Liebhabern solcher Materien, welche das Magazin nicht besitzen, angenehm seyn werde, wenn man eine kleine Anzahl besonderer Abdrücke von denselben veranstalte. Das ist geschehen. Es ist jetzt fast kein Staat mehr in Europa, dessen Finanzwesen noch ein Geheimnis wäre: und warum sollte man es geheim halten; da der Staat nichts dabey gewinnt, so wie er hingegen bey der Bekanntmachung nichts verliert?"

        [PRINTED LOYALTY OATH FROM REVOLUTIONARY-ERA NEW YORK, COMPLETED IN MANUSCRIPT]

      Albany, 1777. Old fold lines, minor soiling and foxing. Extensively docketed on verso. Very good. A printed loyalty oath, completed in manuscript, declaring Edward Morrison of a New York Continental Army regiment to be a faithful servant of the United States. The text reads as follows, with the manuscript portions in brackets: "[I Edward Morrison], Soldier inlisted by [Capt Ten Eyck] in the Regiment commanded by Colonel [Van Schaick] belonging to the State of [New York] in the Service of the United States of America; do swear, to be true to the said united States, and to serve them, honestly and faithfully, against all their Enemies and Opposers whatsoever; and to observe and obey, the Orders of the Continental Congress, and the Orders of the Generals and Officers set over me by them. So help me God. Sworn before me, at Albany, in the State of New-York, this [first] Day of [March] 177[7]. [J Roorbach, justice of the peace]". The oath is docketed on the verso by Ten Eyck, certifying the veracity of the person of Edward Morrison, dated March 4th, followed by a note signed by Gen. John Lansing stating that Morrison passed muster the same date. John Lansing (1754-1829) was an Albany lawyer who served for a time as Gen. Philip Schuyler's military secretary, then later as a representative in the state assembly. He was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in 1787, but left without signing, having become strongly Anti-Federalist and opposed to the centralization of the government. A scarce and ephemeral piece of Revolutionary history.

        BESKRIFNING OFVER DE ENGELSKA COLONIERNE I NORD-AMERICA; UTDRAGEN AF DE TILFORLATLIGASTE ARBETEN, SOM I DETTA AMNE UTKOMMIT I ENGLAND AREN 1776 OCH 1777

      Stockholm, 1777. Contemporary plain stiff wrappers. Paper soiled, torn along spine. Early ownership signatures on front pastedown. Quite clean and neat inside. Very good. In a half morocco box. A little-known and scarce Swedish guide to the American colonies, issued in the early years of the Revolution. Each of the thirteen colonies is discussed in its own section, with details on counties and towns, early exploration, colonization and history, climate, inhabitants, and more. The formerly Swedish colony of Delaware gets surprisingly little attention. The very interesting (and apparently quite scarce) Revolutionary map is entitled "Seat of War in America 1777" in English and Swedish, but is otherwise all in English. It has a small inset of the entire East Coast, but the main part of the map shows the region from the Chesapeake Bay up to Massachusetts and New Hampshire. It is a well-drawn map, the focus of which is the location of forts and large landholdings. OCLC locates a total of ten copies. Scarce.

        Herrn Georg Arnaud, ... Anatomisch=Chirurgische Abhandlung über die Hermaphroditen. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt. Nebst sechs Kupfertafeln

      Straßburg, Amand König, 1777. 8°, Halbleder, goldgeprägter Rückentitel, marmorierte Deckelbezüge und Vorsätze, 2 Bl., 116 S. (S. 113-114 nach 115-116), 6 gef. Tafeln mit 12 meist kolorierten Kupfern, Lesebändchen. Sehr gutes Exemplar! Arnaud de Rosnil (1698-1774), bedeutender französischer Chirurg, Mitglied der Académie Royale de Chirurgie de Paris und der Corporation of Surgeons of London, hatte 1768 eine \"Dissertation sur les hermaphrodites\" veröffentlicht, die hier in erster deutscher Übersetzung (von Johann Georg Krünitz?) vorliegt. Nach seiner Auffassung, die eine bedeutende Rolle im Hermaphroditismus-Diskurs der Aufklärungszeit spielte, sei ein Wesensmerkmal die gemischtgeschlechtliche Anatomie der Genitalien (die in den Abbildungen auch detailliert gezeigt werden). Diderot übernahm die meisten Abbildungen in den Artikel \"Hermaphrodite\" im Ergänzungsband der Encyclopedie (1777), vertrat jedoch die Überzeugung, dass spätestens die Sektion das unter der angeblichen Doppelgeschlechtlichkeit verborgene wahre Geschlecht aufdecken würde.- Hirsch-H. I, 205 - Wellcome II, 58 (nur engl. Übers.) - Libr. of the Karolinska Inst. 128f.: \"The above work is considerably enlarged with an account of the defence of Anne Grandjean, also known by the name of Johann Baptist Grandjean, a case regarding a hermaphrodite which was discussed not only in Paris but all over Europe... Even if fanciful illustrations of hermaphrodites had occured several times in books and prints, the figures in Arnaud\'s work and the two copperplates by Moreau le Jeune seem to be the earliest depictions in printed form of this phenomena drawn d\'après nature.\" - Sehr selten!
