HELVETIUS (Claude Adrien)
A Londres. 4 volumes. 8vo, 206 x 120 mms., pp. [iv], 484; [ii], xx, 513 [ 514 - 515 Approbation and Privilege, 516 blank]; xxviii, 586; xiv, 416, including half-title in each volume, attractively bound in full contemporary tree calf, gilt tooled borders on covers, spines richly gilt in compartments with oval sunburst motif, red and green morocco labels, marbled end-papers. A fine and attractive set, A bookplate loosely inserted in volume 4 claims "From Croom Court/ Roger Payne binder/ 1738 - 97 used a tool/ used in this binding." Helvetius (1715 - 1771) is probably best-known for his De l'Esprit (1758) and its successor De l'Homme (1772). Although the imprint claims London for the place of publication, it is clearly a French, and probably, Parisian printing. De l'Esprit had been condemned by the French parliament soon after it was published and was burnt, so Helvetius was clearly still considered dangerous to the structure of the state in 1777. The imprint is false, as the volumes were printed in Maastricht by Dufour and Roux. David Smith: Bibliography of the writings of Helvetius (2003), O.3. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Édition française en partie originale de la traduction de l'ouvrage du savant britannique Joseph Priestley (1732-1804) "Experiments and observations on different kinds of air" paru à Londres dès 1772. Le 1er vol. est la réimpression de l'édition de 1775 dont la page de titre de 1775 est conservée en tête de ce volume de 1777, les tomes 2 à 5 sont en édition originale. Ouvrages illustrés d'un total de 11 pl. grav. dépliantes réparties dans les 5 vol. Reliures de l'époque en veau moucheté, dos à nerfs avec pièces de titre en maroquin rouge et pièces de tomaison en maroquin vert, à l'exception de celle du premier volume qui est jaune, plats encadrés d'un filet à froid, coupes ornées d'un filet doré, tranches rouges et gardes recouvertes de papier marbré. Très bel ensemble, propre et élégant. Joseph Priestley semble être le premier à découvrir une nouvelle substance gazeuse: l'air dephlogisticaté qui n'est autre que l'oxygène (O2). Comme il conduit les expériences qui l'amènent à cette "découverte" entre 1774 et 1776; il est difficile d'établir avec certitude qui, entre Lavoisier, Scheele et Priestley, est le premier a avoir identifié le célèbre gaz.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

ADAMS, George, Senior
14 folding engraved plates. xxviii, 345, 14 pp. 8vo, cont. mottled half-calf & marbled boards, flat spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: Printed for and Sold by the Author, 1777. Fourth edition, revised with important additions. About 1756 George Adams, Senior (d. 1772), "was appointed mathematical instrument maker to the prince of Wales (the future George III). New forms of instrument dating from this period include a trunnion-mounted microscope and an architectonic sector. Following the death of George II in 1760, Adams became mathematical instrument maker to George III, which, although unsalaried, was the most prestigious appointment available in this field. Many of the extant instruments in the King George III collection at the London Science Museum are from his workshop. In mid-1766 he launched new 18 in. and 12 in. globes, with a Treatise [the present work] describing their construction and use. The dedication to the king was contributed by Dr Samuel Johnson. The unusual form of mounting and relatively high price of Adams's globes drew scathing comments from Benjamin Martin, proprietor of the long-established Senex's globes, but they proved popular and many examples survive."-ODNB. The final 14-pages contain "A Catalogue of Mathematical, Philosophical, and Practical Instruments, Made under the Inspection and Direction of George Adams." Fine and attractive copy. .

Cooke, Samuel:
Boston: Draper & Phillips, 1777.. 31pp. Modern blue paper wrappers. Light toning and foxing. Contemporary notations and ownership markings. Very good. Lacks the half title. In a half morocco box. Sermon preached by Cambridge pastor Samuel Cooke commemorating the two-year anniversary of the Battle of Lexington and Concord, where the opening shots of the Revolutionary War were fired. A graduate of Harvard College whose rhetorical skills had often been solicited for political events, Cooke used this occasion to provocatively argue scriptural comparisons between American revolutionaries and the embattled Israelites. He paints the British as modern-day cousins of the Amelek, a biblical tribe he describes as a "rapacious band" whose "violence was attended with dastardly cruelty and savage barbarity." In the most pointed moment of his sermon, Cooke says of the events at Lexington: "That horrid scene, is instamped upon all our breasts, in characters of blood!" EVANS 15279. SABIN 16350.

WILLIAMS of Pantycelyn, Methodist cleric, author, and hymn-writer, was the chief hymn-writer of the Methodist awakening in Wales, and much of the success of Welsh Methodism must be attributed to the popularity of his hymns. Between 1744 and 1791 his name appears on nearly ninety books and booklets, and this will give some indication of the extent of his literary labours. See NLW WBO for a full Bio.
