(13 x 16½ inches) The map covers the borderlands between Poland and Germany, and in the south, the Czech Republic.

Tielcke Johann Gottlieb
Barthel, Freyberg en Saxe, 1777. In 4° antico, mm 254 x 205, pagg. (1b), (4), 110, (5), (1b), (1), 102, (1b) con 20 bellissime tavole (alcune a colori) ripiegate e incise su rame raffiguranti schemi di battaglia; leg. mezza pelle moderna, titoli oro e nervi al dorso. L'Autore (1731-1787) fu scrittore e militare tedesco e prese parte personalmente alla Guerra dei sette anni. Di questa prima traduzione francese fu stampata solo la Premiere partie, mentre l'opera originale tedesca consta di 6 volumi (stampati dal 1776 al 1786). Legato con un'altra opera, scritta da David Ernst Godow: Des relations & Plans des batailles & combats de la guerre de 1756 à 1763, en Allemagne, Dresde, aux dépends de l'éditeur, 1778. Premiere partie, qui contient toutes les actions arrivées pendant les deux Campagnes, 1756 & 1757. Favoir, celle de Lowositz, Reichenberg, Praag, Kolin, Hastenbeck, Gros , Moys, Rosbach, Breslau, Leuthen. Pagine con bruniture e macchia a una tavola ma nel complesso buon esemplare. Non comune, in particolare questa seconda opera, non citata dalle bibliografie consultate. Nessuna notizia neanche sull'Autore, che probabilmente prese parte in prima persona alla guerra, come il Tielcke. Queste due opere furono giustamente legate insieme, per l'analogia dell'argomento trattato e per il fatto che solo la prima parte di entrambe fu tradotta in francese. (Enciclopedia militare, VI, p. 1208; Beauvais, Dictionnaire historique, p. 3044; The National Union Catalogue, vol. 594, p. 40; The British Library General Catalogue of Printed Books to 1975, vol. 326, p. 100).

Prima edizione del commento del Genovesi, stampata da Terres a otto anni dalla morte dell'autore. Una traduzione dello Spirito delle leggi era uscita parzialmente ad opera di Mecatti nel 1750, ma l'operazione era stata interrotta dalla censura. Terres, che possedeva il manoscritto del Genovesi, nel 1777 riuscì ad ottenere il permesso di stampa dell'opera commentata, con l'aggiunta di operette ad essa relative quali l'elogio di D'Alembert ad opera di Montesquieu, la Difesa dello Spirito delle leggi di J. Fontane de la Roche, il Ringraziamento sincero attribuito a Voltaire etc.

The map depicts the English colonies extending to the Alleghenies, showing a vast Louisiana as far west as the far side of the Mississippi. "Covers the area east of the Mississippi River from James Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. Shows states, towns and cities, Indian villages and tribal territory, routes of navigation along the southern coast and relief" (Sellers and Van Ee).A large inset shows Florida south of St. Augustine, as well as the Bahamas, Cuba, Hispaniola and Jamaica. A hachured border line shows the British colonies extending only to the Appalachians. Cartographically, Imbert's map follows the mappings by other French cartographers of the 18th century, including De L'Isle, d'Anville and Brion de la Tour.Imbert's map would be reissued by Jean-Baptiste Eliot in 1783, that edition being one of the first maps issued following the provisional Treaty of Peace.

Lichtenberg, Georg Christoph, Schriftsteller (1742-1799).
O. O., [1777].. 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit drei Federzeichnungen.. Arbeitsmanuskript des ersten Teils seiner berühmten Satire auf Lavaters damals in Erscheinung begriffene "Physiognomischen Fragmente zur Beförderung der Menschenkenntnis und Menschenliebe" (1775-1778), die europaweit Furore machten. Lichtenberg parodiert meisterhaft Lavaters larmoyante Art, seine zum Teil minimalistischen Darstellungen von Nasenprofilen oder Ohren mit großartigen Charakterattributen zu versehen, die er im Text dann ausführlich erläutert. Die ersten zwei Zeichnungen zeigen zwei "Heroische, kraftvolle" Schwänze, nämlich "Ein Sauschwantz" und "Englischer Doggen Schwantz", die dritte Zeichnung vereinigt die beiden Schwänze in Kameenform. Darunter eine Echtheitsbestätigung von Lichtenbergs Schülers Friedrich Kries (1768-1849): "Daß Vorstehendes des Götting. Lichtenbergs eigene Handschrift ist, kann ich bezeugen. Gotha den 16t Januar 1847. Fr. Kries". Lichtenbergs Göttinger Kollege, der Arzt Ernst Gottfried Baldinger (1738-1804), ließ die Satire 1783 ohne Wissen Lichtenbergs im "Neuen Magazin für Ärzte" (Bd. 5) veröffentlichen. Das vorliegende Manuskript weist einige Abweichungen gegenüber dem Druck auf; auch fehlt im Druck die hübsche Cameo-Vignette am Schluss des Manuskripts. - Geringfügig stockfleckig, kleine Einrisse in der Faltung.

[Continental Congress]:
Philadelphia & York-town. 1777-1778.. Two volumes. [2],310,[12]; [2],520,[27]pp. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Light foxing and soiling. Very good. Untrimmed. A nice set of the Journals of the Continental Congress for the first two years. The first volume was published by Robert Aitken in Philadelphia, and was the first collected set of the Journals. These had been published previously in two separate volumes (both of extreme rarity) in 1774 and 1776. This collected issue became the first volume of the series, which continued until the end of the Confederacy and the adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. The volume contains a wealth of the most important documents of the Revolutionary period, with all of the proceedings of the first, and part of the second, Continental Congress for 1774 and 1775. Rare in such nice condition and especially so with the twelve pages of index. The second volume was published by John Dunlap in York, and is one of the rarest of the series issued from 1774 to 1788, with a peculiar and romantic publication history. Textually it covers the exciting events of 1776, culminating with the Declaration of Independence on July 4, an early printing of which appears here, as well as all of the other actions of Congress for the year. It is thus a vital document in the history of American independence and the American Revolution. Through the middle of 1777 the printer of the Journals of Congress was Robert Aitken of Philadelphia. In 1777 he published the first issue of the Journals for 1776, under his own imprint. This was complete … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

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. .

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.
