MONTESQUIEU, Charles-Louis de
1777 Spirit of the Laws Montesquieu Political Government USA Democracy LAW 2v “Useless laws weaken the necessary laws.” Montesquieu, The Spirit of the Laws Charles-Louis de Montesquieu’s ‘Spirit of the Laws’ is one of the most famous treaties ever written, especially on political theory. This work was so influential that world leaders such as Catherine the Great and the United States founding fathers applied the methods taught in this book to their culture’s future. This famed work found itself on the infamous ‘Prohibited Book Index’ in 1751 even though it was well-respected and well-read around the world. Montesquieu lists a few major points in his work; points that have resonated with government for centuries. These include: • Separation of power • Liberty and democracy are one in the same • The point of civil and criminal law is to ensure personal security • Qualities and flaws of governmental types This rare two-volume edition is in English and published by Crowder Item number: #4329 Price: $599 MONTESQUIEU, Charles-Louis de The spirit of laws London : Printed for S Crowder, C.

Prestel, Maria Katharina (geb. Höll 1747 Nürnberg – London 1794)
Farbaquatinta, 1777, nach einer Zeichnung von Jacopo Ligozzi (1547-1627), mit gestochener Umrandung, mit Paßlöchern, auf chamoisfarbenem festem Bütten. 57,7:38,5 cm. – Linker Rand mit einem Papierstreifen hinterlegt. Literatur: Schwaighofer 35. Blatt 30 der Folge „Praunsches Kabinett, Nürnberg". Vorzüglicher und vollrandiger Abdruck dieser beeindruckenden dynamischen Darstellung! Die Malerin, Zeichnerin, Radiererin und Kupferstecherin ist seit 1769 in Nürnberg erst Schülerin, dann Mitarbeiterin und seit 1772 Ehefrau des Malers, Radierers und Kupferstechers J.G. Prestel (1739-1808), mit dem sie gemeinsam eine Reproduktionswerkstatt betrieb, die zwar großen, aber weniger finanziellen Erfolg hatte. 1782 zog das Künstlerpaar gemeinsam nach Frankfurt am Main, 1786 jedoch siedelte sie alleine nach London über in der Hoffnung auf bessere Verdienstmöglichkeiten – eine vollständige Trennung vom Ehemann war wohl entgegen bisheriger Annahmen nicht angedacht. Dort arbeitete sie erfolgreich als Radiererin und Kupferstecherin und fertigte für verschiedene bekannte örtliche Verleger zahlreiche Reproduktionen nach deutschen, holländischen und italienischen Meistern an, z.B. für Molteno, Colnaghi & Cie. Ihre beiden Kinder, Ursula Magdalena (1777-1845) und Michael Gottlieb (1779-1845), die ebenfalls die künstlerische Laufbahn einschlugen, Gottlieb wurde darüber hinaus Kunsthändler, folgten ihr 1789 nach London; ihr Ehemann blieb mit dem Rest der Familie in Frankfurt am Main ansässig. Ein Wiedersehen der Eheleute hat nicht stattgefunden.

Striking sea chart based on a VOC manuscript map, fathoms, depths rocks and safe soundings are noted. Batavia was the name of the capital city of the Dutch East Indies that corresponds to the present day Central Jakarta. Henry Gregory (1744-1782) was a British mathematical and optical instrument maker. One of his azimuth compasses accompanied James Cook on his second voyage to the Pacific (1772-1775). The chart appeared as one of 46 in "A New Directory for the East Indies". This directory was designed for professional rather than popular use and valued in commercial as well as military navigation. As many of these maps were destroyed by the wear and tear of sea travel, this chart is an exceptional document of this active region, both yesterday and today.

SMITH, Adam.) HUME, David.
London: W. Strahan and T. Cadell; for J. Bew, 1777. London: W. Strahan and T. Cadell; for J. Bew,, 1777. (Together with: PRATT, Samuel Jackson.) Supplement to the Life of David Hume, Esq. Containing genuine Anecdotes, and a circumstantial Account of his Death and Funeral. To which is added, a certified Copy of his last Will and Testament. 2 works bound in one volume, octavo (151 × 91 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, rebacked, spine ruled gilt, red morocco label. Engraved frontispiece portrait to the first work. Corners worn, with loss of leather, some surface wear to covers, notably along the fore-edges, offset from the frontispiece onto the title, as usual; some light spotting and toning; still very good copies. First edition, second issue (with the misprint "himself" for "myself", line 3, p. 29), of the most endearing of autobiographies, bound with a related contemporary work. Hume was aware that, owing to his views on religious questions, the manner of his death would be a matter of public curiosity. So when, in My Own Life, he set out to describe his feelings as he approached his end, he was as much writing a manifesto for his philosophy as a piece of autobiography. It is generally agreed that the account is an authentic self-portrait of one whom his friend Adam Smith, whose letter to the publisher William Strahan recounting Hume's last days is printed at the end of the Life, described as approaching "as nearly to the idea of a perfectly wise and virtuous man, as perhaps the nature of human fraility will admit". Smith also contributed the preface (cf. Strahan's le … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed by T. Wright ., and sold by G. Kearsly, London, 1777. Trials of pirate Captain Kidd, and New York colonial politician Nicholas Bayard, complete in itself. Captain William Kidd (c.1654 - 1701) was a Scottish sailor who was tried and executed for piracy, although some modern historians note that relegating him to the role of pirate and putting him on trial was a maneuver used by politicians of the day to deflect attention from their own questionable roles in privateering. Here Kidd testifies that he has French passes, which would have provided proof that he worked as a privateer and not a pirate: "I beg your Lordship's Patience till I can procure my Papers. I had a Couple of French Passes, which I must make use of in order to my Justification" (p287). Kidd was not allowed to retrieve his papers; he was found guilty on all charges (murder and piracy) and sentenced to death. (pp287-339).In 1910 at the British Public Records archives, the French passes were found that Captain Kidd claimed would prove his innocence. The second trial of note included here is that of Colonel Nicholas Bayard, p419-440. Bayard, the 16th mayor of New York City, was accused in 1702 of high treason before Chief Justice William Atwood, on the basis of a remonstrance signed by him and others, considered to be libelous. Bayard was sentenced to death, but after the death of the New York governor and the corrupt Chief Justice, the proceedings were annulled, and Bayard's property and name were cleared.Volume 5 of 6 volumes.

Folio (423 x 280 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label, spine gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers, red edges. With 12 folding engraved plates, most double-page, by Sellier and d'Elvaux after Blarenberg. Armorial bookplate of Henry Tronchin. Skilful and unobtrusive repairs to joints and tips, final two plates with a couple of very light red paint marks, occasional variable light browning and offsetting, overall a pleasing copy of this handsome folio. First edition of this account of this remarkable feat of engineering. Charged with designing the bronze equestrian statue of the Russian emperor Peter the Great that remains a celebrated landmark of St Petersburg, the French sculptor Etienne Falconet decided that the traditional pedestal for equestrian statues would be too mundane. Only a massive rock would suffice. Eventually an enormous piece of granite was located in a marsh near the Gulf of Finland. The Thunder Stone, as it was dubbed, was estimated to be 40 feet long, 25 feet side, and 21 feet tall, and weighed some 1,800 tons: about 1,300 tons more than any of the obelisks moved by the ancient Egyptians or Romans. Most engineers declared its removal impossible, but Catherine the Great turned to Carburi, a Greek of dubious moral reputation who had b … [Click Below for Full Description]

PRIMA RARA EDIZIONE COMPLETA contenente sette lettere a Giuseppe Campi sulle indagini dell'autore sul gas di palude, il metano, che in precedenza non era stato distinto dall'aria infiammabile metallica già nota, l'idrogeno. La prima edizione più rara, pubblicata nel 1776, includeva solo le prime due lettere a Campi. SBN cita un'ultima carta finale, non presente qui e spesso mancante, ma apparentemente presente nella copia di Honeyman e che pare contenere una citazione latina. Cfr.

Raccolto tale gas, ne scoprì il carattere infiammabile. «Quest’aria arde assai lentamente con una bella vampa azzurrina».

[Philadelphia: Printed and Sold by Styner and Cist, 1777. First edition, second state. pp. [2], 27-56. 1 vols. 8vo. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, bound in antique style, spine gilt lettered. Title-page trimmed, slightly repaired at fore-edge. Light tanning and dampstaining. About very good. First edition, second state. pp. [2], 27-56. 1 vols. 8vo. The very rare third part of the series by Paine, written to boost the morale of American troops. The pamphlet is dated "Philadelphia, April 19, 1777" at the end of the text. The verso of the title-page prints proclamations by Gen. George Washington dated April 6 and 8, 1777, offering pardons to all army deserters who rejoin their corps before May 15, 1777. Paine thus wrote the pamphlet in mid-April 1777. In the text Paine predicts that Philadelphia will be a target of the British armies, as indeed it was that summer. "Britain, like a gamester nearly ruined, hath now put all her losses into one bet, and is playing a desperate game for the total. If she wins, she wins from ME my life; she wins the continent as the forfeited property of rebels; the right of taxing those that are left as reduced subjects; and the power of binding them as slaves." Paine goes on to argue that complete independence is the only path forward. The separate pamphlet editions of THE AMERICAN CRISIS, all of which are rare, were printed in various cities and towns, and all seem to be distinguished by having caption titles only. The older references, such as Evans and Howes, describe the Philadelphia printings of P … [Click Below for Full Description]

Peru. Viceroy (1776-1780: Guirior).
1777. When the second Spanish-Portuguese War broke out in 1776, the Spanish king knew that the strength of the navy and merchant fleet would be essential for securing a victory. To that end, the crown has here instructed Viceroy Guiror to create a register of all sailors, both merchant and crown, living in the ports and coastal towns of the viceroyalty, so as to have them in ready reserve. Guiror here promulgates the very detailed instructions for the accomplishment of that list. He first grants amnesty to all deserters provided they present themselves within six months for active duty/work and he goes on in the 72 articles of this statute to list those exempted, the age requirements to be maintained, the jobs covered by the register, the reserve's administrative structure, the hierarchical tree of command, etc., as well as specifying that all will enjoy the privileges and exemptions that the crown long ago extended to the navy and merchant marine. Not found via NUC or WorldCat, but we know of a copy in backlog processing at the John Carter Brown Library.
