HUME (David)
London: Printed for T. Cadell...and A. Donaldson, and W. Creech, at Edinburgh, 1777. 2 volumes. 8vo, pp. [iv], 571 [572 blank]; [viii], 527 [528 adverts], contemporary calf, spines gilt in compartments, red and olive morocco labels; upper joints of volume 2 cracked, some large chips to spine of volume 2, which is noticeably darker than the spine of volume 12, tops and base of spines chipped, but a good set, with the armorial bookplate of the Earl of Kinnoul on the front paste-down end-paper of each volume. The bookplate of the Earl of Kinnoull marks this copy out as of special interest. David Hume knew the son of the 8th Earl of Kinnoull personally. See, for example, the letter to Adam Ferguson of February 1767 in which Hume mentions recently making a strong recommendation to "the Archbishop of Yorke". At this time, the Archbishop of York was Robert Hay Drummond (1711-1776), second son of the deceased 8th Earl of Kinnoull, and brother of the then present 9th Earl of Kinnoull (see The Letters of David Hume, ed. by J. Y. T. Greig, [Oxford University Press, 1932], Vol. 2, p. 120-121, though Greig uses the less common spelling "Kinnoul", and mistakenly states Robert to be son of the 7th Earl). The Earls of Kinnoull in the eighteenth century were among the most visible and well-connected peers of the realm, no doubt partly due to the 8th Earl of Kinnoull having married the youngest daughter of Robert Harley, 1st Earl of Oxford, one of the most powerful politicians of the first half of the century. Alexander Pope knew the 8th Earl, and took him as his model for the charac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Whately, Thomas]
London: T. Payne and Son, 1777. Fourth edition (257 pp.). Tall octavo, contemporary decorative calf with remnants of gilt decoration; marbled epps (remnant of bookplates); hinges starting but holding, corners worn. As illustrations, Whately has chosen various garden features from Wotton, Blenheim, Tinturn Abbey, Painshill, Stowe, and Moore Park among others. These examples are produced in support of a largely analytic description of the elements of a garden (Trees are separated into different types by their different shapes, shades of green, and growths). ‘Gardens' here are more properly pleasure gardens and the design principles bear on landscapes. An early, influential treatment of landscape design by Thomas Jeffereson's favourite gardener. A clean, attractive copy.

G.B. Piranesi
Rome 1777 - John Wilton-Ely plate 874No watermark is presentThis plate is from the series "Diverse Maniere d'adornare I cammini ed ogni altra parte degli edifizi desunte dall' architettura Egizia?" (John Wilton-Ely)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates.

Erste Ausgabe. - Wichtige Quelle zur Geschichte Oberschwabens und in der Biographie des Auftraggebers Truchseß Georg III. (1488-1531, der "Bauernjörg") eine zeitgenössische Quelle zu den Ereignissen des Bauernkrieges. 1785 erschien in Kempten noch ein Fortsetzungsband zur späteren Geschichte des Hauses. - Die hübsche Titelvignette mit einem Blick auf die Waldburg, im Hintergrund der Bodensee, die Kupfertafel zeigt Siegel. - Die falsch 337-376 paginierten Seiten 237-276 in unserem Exemplar alt durch Überklebung der ersten Ziffer korrigiert. - Titel mit kleinem Prägestempel. Untere Ecke mit leichtem Moderschaden, vor allem die ersten und letzten Blätter betroffen, sonst kaum fleckig, die Stammtafeln mit einigen Quetsch- und Knickfalten. Einband etwas berieben und bestoßen, Rückenschild fehlt, Deckel unten mit Bezugsfehlstellen. - Trotz des nicht einwandfreien Zustandes außergewöhnliches Exemplar: Auf dem vorderen Vorsatz der Besitzvermerk von "C(hristian) J(akob) Wagenseil. Kaufbeuren. 1792", darunter sein eigenhändiger Vermerk "Geschenk von meinem Freund, Hhw D. von Abele, Syndico zu Kempten". Johann Martin von Abele (1753-1805) war ab 1779 Syndikus in Kempten und gilt als zentrale Figur der Aufklärung in der Reichsstadt, beide kannten sich vermutlich schon zu Göttinger Studienzeiten (vgl. Kraus-Dieter II, 133) und waren Brüder der Freimaurerlogen in Kaufbeuren und Kempten. *Heyd 834.

Gregoire, Gaspard
Esprit David, Aix-en-Provence, 1777. A Fine Festival Book. [GREGOIRE, Gaspard, pere.] Explication des ceremonies de la FÍte-Dieu díAix en Provence. . . . 12mo. [2], 220pp. Fronts. portrait of Rene díAnjou (1408-80) & 13 plates ( 1 folding with music), mostly engraved by Gaspard GREGOIRE fils (1751-1846), after drawings by his brother Paul GREGOIRE. 190 x 109 mm. Wrappers c. 1800, uncut, spine chipped. Very faint dampstain in gutter of first two leaves, a little browning & soiling. Very good copy. Aix: David, 1777. First Edition. A very full account of the Corpus Christi pageant in Aix, with twelve plates showing theater and dance, and one with notation for five accompanying pieces of music. Barbier II 378 attributes the work to the Aix silk manufacturer, Gaspard Grergoire, and his sons Gaspard and Paul. Gaspard fils manufactured a famous velvet, "velours Gregoire," which could be painted; his brother Paul became the first to paint on velvet. Their works were exhibited in Paris, at the Louvre, in the early 1800ís; the Gregoire fabrics are preserved in several French museums today. (Paul, by the way, was a deaf-mute from birth.) The Gregoires, as Aix manufacturers, would probably have had a prominent role in the pageant, which was, even in the 18th century, one of the great city affairs of the year. Doubtless they supplied cloth for the costumes, and were in a position to provide specialist descriptions of the masks and dress of the participants. The Corpus Christi pageant reached its height in the 15th century, when it became in effect the principal feast of the Church, a ti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Berlin, 19. III. 1777.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief) und Resten eines papiergedeckten Siegels.. Schöner, sehr freundschaftlicher Brief an Monsieur Kanitz in Breslau: "Lange schon habe ich gehofft Sie hier zu sehen, Sie an mein treues Herz zu drücken, Ihnen alles zu erzählen, was ich seit der langen Zeit Ihrer Abwesenheit gethan und gedacht, geschrieben und gelesen, gutes und Nichtgutes erfahren habe. Man machte mir auch die grösseste Hoffnung dazu; aber Herr Mau hat sie mir wieder zu Wasser gemacht. Er sagte mir gar, Sie wären krank, und, wie er besorge, sehr krank. O! lassen Sie mich es doch bald wissen, daß Sie sich wieder bessern, damit ich nicht länger in Sorgen stehe, meinen besten Freund zu verlieren, den ich in Berlin habe, gehabt habe, muß ich sagen, wenn Sie beschlossen haben, in Breslau zu bleiben. - Sie halten ja sonst gute Diät in allen Stücken, vielleicht aber nicht in den Englischen Tänzen. Sollte ich das erfahren, wie freundlich wollte ich Sie schelten! Sollten Sie sich bei einem Tanze erhitzt haben, so streiche ich künftig die ganze Tanzkunst und alles was dazu gehört aus der Rubrik der schönen Wissenschaften aus, und setze sie in die verderblichen brodtlosen Künste [...] - ich will nicht fluchen, ich bin noch nüchtern - aber ereifern will ich mich doch, wenn Sie sich krank getanzt hätten. Wenn Sie nicht mit Vergnügen in Breslau sind, so hängt Ihr Schicksal ja von Ihnen selbst ab; ändern Sie den Ort, und leben hier unter den ältren Freunden vergnügt mit wenigerem.

nella Stamperia di Paolo Giunchi, 1777. In-8° (158x89mm), pp. XXII, (2) di imprimatur,490, (1) di errata, legatura coeva p. pergamena con titolo e fregi oro su tassello in pelle arancio al dorso. Tagli rossi. Frontespizio con titolo e fregio ad arabesco entro bordura ornamentale. Nota di possesso di tal Vincenzo Rolandi al contropiatto in data 1792. Aloni marginali leggeri a numerose cc., con il testo sempre perfettamente perspicuo, e bruniture sparse. Più che discreto esemplare. Una delle prime versioni italiane, se non la prima assoluta (esistono diverse edizioni italiane con la data del 1777, di cui, oltre alla presente, una di Genova e una di Venezia, ed è impossibile stabilire la priorità cronologica dell'una rispetto alle altre), di "Voltaire parmi les ombres" (Parigi, 1775), libello anonimo, ma dovuto alla penna del teologo Charles Louis Richard, assai sferzante nei confronti di Voltaire; il pamphlet ebbe un'ulteriore coda polemica con "Voltaire de retour des ombres et sur le point d'y retourner pour n'en plus revenir" (Parigi, 1776), sorta di catabasi di Voltaire dal regno dei morti dopo l'anabasi del libello precedente. Nell'opera Richard svilisce Voltaire mettendolo a confronto in quindici "trattenimenti" con grandi filosofi che lo hanno preceduto, da Marco Aurelio a Spinoza, da Bossuet a Pascal, da Machiavelli a Bayle. Il Richard (Blainville-sur-l'Eau, Lorena, 1711-Mons, 1794), di nobile famiglia lorenese, assunse sedicenne l'abito domenicano. Addottoratosi alla Sorbona, si dedicò alla predicazione e alla stesura di testi apologetici volti a combattere i nemici o … [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]

[LIVRES ANCIENS] - VOLTAIRE
Geneve, s.e., 1777; petit in-12, 220 pp., relié d'époque demi-veau à coins, dos lisse. François-Marie Arouet, dit Voltaire, philosophe et homme de lettres du XVIIIe siècle, symbole des Lumières, incarna à lui seul l'intellectuel engagé et la puissance de l'opinion publique. Eduqué par les jésuites, Voltaire se fit remarquer en rhétorique & par sa capacité à versifier. Il prit très tôt le contrepied de cette éducation & s'orienta vers la société des libertins, brilla dans les salons plaisantant même sur la relation du Régent & de sa fille, ce qui lui valut 11 mois de Bastille. Très vite, Voltaire obtint le succès littéraire avec la Henriade. Suite à l'affaire Rohan-Chabot, il fut à nouveau embastillé, mais très vite libéré à condition qu'il s'exilât. Voltaire partit alors pour l'Angleterre, fit la connaissance d'Emilie Du Châtelet & fut reçu à la cour de Lunéville. Rentré ensuite à Paris, il quitta rapidement la ville pour visiter Frédéric II à Berlin puis s'installa à Ferney près de Genève. Peu d'écrivains furent aussi prolifiques que Voltaire. En ce qui concerne le présent volume, notons que les lettres furent rédigées, dès le début, en vue d'une publication, très critique envers la religion et favorisant la science. Edition sympathique du 18e siècle. Bon état.

[Massachusetts]:
[Boston 1777].. 11pp. String-tied self-wrappers, as issued. Contemporary ink notations on first page and verso of final text page. Two small holes in final leaf, affecting about five words. Very good. The present copy bears the ownership signature of Jonathan Stone of the central Massachusetts town of Rutland, just north of Worcester. The final blank page contains Stone's ink notes recording the names of leading Rutland citizens and politicians, as well as several calculations. In 1777, Massachusetts passed a State Price Act, allowing towns to set prices on various groceries and commodities to prevent profiteering through hoarding and price gouging. This printed version of the Act, passed Jan. 25, sets out the reasoning for the law in a preamble, provides a list of goods and services with the maximum prices that could be asked, and authorizes localities throughout the state to set their own prices based on "usage and custom." The law was repealed in October 1777. EVANS 15404. CUSHING 976. NAIP w033147.
