Containing a description of the red particles of the blood in the human subject and in other animals; with an account of the structure and offices of the lymphatic glands, of the Thymus Gland, and of the Spleen: being the remaining part of the observations and experiments of the late Mr. William Hewson, F.

LOS RIOS, Jean François de
Fine mezzotint port. of Los Rios. xvi, 207 pp. 8vo, cont. half-sheep & paste-paper boards (spine & corners a trifle worn, minor foxing), flat spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Avignon: F. Seguin; Lyon: l'Auteur, 1777. First edition of an interesting bookseller's catalogue, classed by subject, priced, and with an author index. "According to the 'Avertissement,' this classified list of 800 titles was written to preserve the notes that De los Rios had made in the course of his business as a bookseller...The Bibliothèque [sic] is a unique or almost unique instance of a classified catalogue of rare books...Being a list of books already sold, the Bibliothèque is a very strange variety of catalogue of which I can cite very few examples. Frank Karslake's Notes from Sotheby's...is such a work. And E.P. Goldschmidt's Catalogue 100 is another."- Taylor, Catalogues of Rare Books, pp. 28-29-(incorrectly citing the title). Los Rios (1728-1820), was one of the most knowledgeable and colorful booksellers of his time. He handled many of the greatest books which, for the most part, came from the libraries of the Jesuits at Lyon, Tournon, and Macon and from the private libraries of the abbés Piole and Gindre. He worked as a bookseller's clerk in Paris and Rome, visited England and the Low Countries, and finally established himself as a bookseller at Lyon in 1766. Our copy contains the handsome mezzotint portrait of Los Rios which, according to Taylor, is present in only a few copies. Nice copy. ❧ Varille, La Vie facétieuse de M. de Los Ri … [Click Below for Full Description]

DE BRAHM, William Gerard (1717-99)
Paris: Chez le Rouge, 1777. Copper-engraved map, with period hand colouring in outline, on four sheets, joined to form two folding sheets, approximate size of the joined folding sheets: 30 1/2 x 42 3/4 inches, overall image size (if the pairs of sheets were to be joined): 51 3/8 x 41 inches. Large inset strip map of the Hudson River at the lower right, titled: Cours de la Riviere d'Hudson et la Comunication avec le Canada Par le Lac Champlain Jusqu'au Fort Chambly par Sauthier. The rare "Le Rouge" edition of De Brahm's A Map of South Carolina and Part of Georgia, with the addition of Le Rouge's version of Claude Sauthier's map of the course of the Hudson River. Cumming writes of De Brahm's map: "This map shows the coast from the North Carolina boundary line southward to St. Mary's River in Georgia and extends westward to the Indian country ... For the coastal region and up the larger rivers as far as the settlements extend, great care and detail in surveying is evident ... The actual amount of topographical information given ... is impressive" (Cumming p.280). De Brahm emigrated from Germany to Georgia in 1751. His long service as a military engineer in the army of Charles VII of Bavaria placed him in good stead, his talents were recognized and his advice and designs for fortifications much sought after. These requests for advice involved much travelling, and allowed him to gather a great deal of information about South Carolina and Georgia. After less than two years he felt confident enough to announce his intention of publishing a map of the ar … [Click Below for Full Description]

William Burton and Anonymous
d 1777 - London - Henry Lintot and T. Durham, 1742 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An unusual copy, comprising two separate biographies bound in a single volume. The first is of Dr Hermann Boerhaave(1668 1738), a Dutch botanist, humanist and physician of European fame. He is regarded as the founder of clinical teaching and of the modern academic hospital. The second is of Voltaire (1694 - 1778), a French Enlightenment writer, historian and philosopher famous for his wit and for his advocacy of civil liberties. A versatile writer, he produced works in almost every literary form, including plays, poems, novels, essays, and historical and scientific works. The two works have been professionally combined and rebound for the Birmingham Medical Institute, the name of which can be seen at the base of the spine and on several institutional stamps throughout the volume. With a copperplate contents page. Interesting and valuable works particularly the first stated. Condition: Sympathetically rebound in half calf with marbled boards. Externally, rubbed with some very slightloss to the extremities and the marbled paper. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean with just the occasional handling mark. Overall: GOOD..

London: T. Cadell, 1777. 3rd. Hardcover Hardcover. Good. James Wilson: A Signed Volume from the Library of the Declaration of Independence Signer Abbe Raynal (translated by J. Justamond): A Philosophical and Political History of the Settlements and Trade of the Europeans of the West Indies, Volume Two (of five), (London: T. Cadell, 1777), third edition, hardcover, calf, 596 pages, 5.5 x 8.25. Clearly signed on the title page in ink, James Wilson. Wilson was a Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Pennsylvania. In 1789, he became one of the original nine justices appointed by Washington to the Supreme Court. This book created a sensation when it was first issued - anonymously - in 1770; in the next decades it was brought out in dozens of editions in various languages and became one of the most widely read political texts of the day. The controversy that surrounded the book arose, in the words of one commentator, its treatment of religion and its advocacy of the popular right to consent to taxation and to revolt...Its sometimes incendiary treatment of the slave trade became canonical in the debate over abolition that it did much to spur. Trumping all other brickbats the book might have suffered was the ultimate Seal of Disapproval: The Catholic Church placed it on the notorious Index Librorum Prohibitorum, the list of officially banned books that endangered the faith. (The intellectual Wilson was himself an Anglican/Episcopalian, and thus must have felt quite unconcerned by the Pope's decree). That Wilson owned and read this book is particularly interesting in li … [Click Below for Full Description]

On April 6th, Congress resolves "that no Slaves be imported into any of the Thirteen United Colonies" (II:122), and subsequently agrees on the terms of 18 articles of war (II:365-81).
