Guyton De Morveau Louis Bernard; Maret, Hugues ; Durande, Jean Francois
Dijon: Chez L. N. Frantin, 1777. First Edition. Hard Cover. Vol 1: [6],viii,394 pages. Vol II: [4], xxviii, 382 pages. Vol III: [4], x, 448, [4] pages. Vol 1 is in a period binding but rough with staining and loose. It also lacks the 2 plates. We have supplied a second copy of Vol 1 with the 2 plates in a later binding as a supplement. Volume II is sound and in a period binding. Vol III has one page (251) which was an end-sheet in the binding process - the margins are lacking, but the text is complete. Volume III is also rebacked in a period style retaining the original boards with portions of the original spine laid down. A hard set to put together, and rarely found complete and matched. 'A famous textbook by Guyton de Morveau and his colleagues, written to accompany the course of chemistry they gave under the auspices of the Academy of Dijon. Guyton planned the course and gave most of the lectures with the assistance of Dr. Maret (1726-1786) on materia medica and Dr Durande (d1794) on the chemistry of vegetable substances. 'The work was hailed throughout Europe as an important milestone and de Morveau became famous almost overnight. The treatise is important and interesting, for we can see that de Morveau already had the main lines fixed in his mind of those ideas which were later to appear in his Nomenclature chimique, which was first published by him in the Journal de Physique (1782), and finally adopted by Lavoisier, Fourcroy and Bethrollet in 1787' (Duveen)' (Neville I, p568). Good.

STERNE, (LAURENCE).
Neuchatel, l'imprim. de la Société typographique, 1777 respektive "Yorck" (=Paris), 1785. 12:o. (4),XXIV,286,(2 blanka) + (4),352 + IV,280 + (2),286 s. Två vackra men inte helt uniforma samtida lätt nötta hfrbd med rikt guldornerade ryggar, röda titel- och gröna deltiteletiketter i marokäng. Röda snitt. Ett litet maskhål i ryggskinnet på den första volymen och en liten repa på ryggen på den andra. Någon enstaka småfläck. Gamla välgjorda lagningar i marginalen på s. 37-40 i del I och 27-28 i del II. Del II delvis med en liten bruntonad fläck i nedre marginalen. Från Ericsberg. Rochedieu Bibliography of French translations s. 316-17. Voogd A bibliography of Sterne in French s. 103 respektive 105. De första två delarna är översatta av Frénais, de senare två av Charles F. De Bonnay. "The life and opinions of Tristram Shandy" utkom 1759-67 i åtta delar och den första franska delöversättningen trycktes redan 1760. Frénais var först med en fransk översättning i två band av originalets första fyra delar och den trycktes 1776, varpå följde detta omtryck. Dessa kompletterades först 1785 av De Bonnays översättning i två band av originalets del V-VIII. Samma år utkom ytterligare en översättning av del V-VIII av De la Beaume. Denna anses vara bättre än De Bonnays, men det var Frénais och De la Beaumes bägge översättningar som kom att bli standardutgåvan av "Tristram Shandy" på franska under de följande 50 åren.

Tafeln mit 12 meist kolorierten Kupfern, Lesebändchen. Sehr gutes Exemplar!. Arnaud de Rosnil (1698-1774), bedeutender französischer Chirurg, Mitglied der Academie 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.

REY, Jean
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'.Second 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.

[Continental Congress]:
Philadelphia. 1777-1788. Fourteen volumes. 19th-century green calf and marbled boards, spines gilt with leather labels. Rubbed at extremities; a few volumes with slight wear to head or foot of spine; some corners worn. Contemporary ownership inscription in three volumes. Titlepage of volume five with some staining and loss (likely from removed ownership markings); backed with heavier paper; all but volumes two, four, and six below with similar loss, repaired, no staining. Light toning and foxing. Overall, a very good set. A complete set of the Journals of the Continental Congress, remarkably difficult to assemble. These Journals contain the most vital documents from the Revolutionary period through the end of the Confederacy, and culminate with the adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. They are an essential basis for any comprehensive collection of the Revolution and early National period. This set, besides the customary thirteen volumes, contains a variant edition for the year 1780. Volumes one and three are signed on the titlepage by Henry Marchant, Attorney General of Rhode Island 1771- 77, and their delegate to the Continental Congress from 1777 to 1779, during which time he signed the Articles of Confederation. Volume two has the signature of Joseph McIlvane, an officer in the Pennsylvania Line from Bucks County, Pa. Shortly after the Declaration of Independence, Congress recognized the necessity of publishing its proceedings on a timely basis.

A Map of the Eastern Part of the Roman Empire by Thomas Kitchin, sen.// Edward Gibbon (27 April 1737 - 16 January 1794) was an English historian and Member of Parliament. His most important work, The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, was published in six volumes between 1776 and 1788. The Decline and Fall is known for the quality and irony of its prose, its use of primary sources, and its open criticism of organized religion. Gibbon returned to England in June 1765. His father died in 1770, and after tending to the estate, which was by no means in good condition, there remained quite enough for Gibbon to settle fashionably in London at 7 Bentinck Street, independent of financial concerns. By February 1773, he was writing in earnest, but not without the occasional self-imposed distraction. He took to London society quite easily, joined th … [Click Below for Full Description]

RATZER, Bernard (fl. 1756-84) & William FADEN, (1750-1836)
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 Monmou … [Click Below for Full Description]

RAPHAEL. Raffaello Sanzio d'Urbino (1483-1520)
Rome, 1777. Copper engraving by Volpato after a drawing by Camporesi, later professional hand-colouring. Good condition. Expert strengthening to verso of right outer blank margin, some old light creasing to 3 inches of the sheet. This beautiful perspective view of Raphael's Loggia, served as the frontispiece to the celebrated text, "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano". This arresting print is a general perspective view of Raphael's design for the Loggia at the Vatican, with a large profile portrait of Raphael in a medallion over the entrance to the corridor. The plate served as the frontispiece to the first part of the "Logge di Rafaele nel Vaticano", which depicted the decorative work executed by Raphael and his assistants between 1518-1519 in the Vatican. This remarkable print, one of the first to be published of the decoration of the Logge on the main storey of the Vatican apartments, was probably planned as early as 1760, but was not executed until between 1772 and 1776. The project as a whole was carried out by the painter Gaetano Savorelli, the draughtsman Ludovico Teseo, the architect Pietro Camporesi, and the engravers Giovanni Ottaviani and Giovanni Volpato. The whole series was of importance not just for the size and magnificent colouring of the prints, but also because of the influence they had on contemporary taste. The decision was made to "borrow" elements from Raphael's Vatican tapestries and insert them where the original frescoes were in too poor a state to be legible. The finished plates therefore represented an amalgam of design elements presented with a … [Click Below for Full Description]
