      1778. "Rara mappa regionale del Friuli.

The map provides fine detail in both the Alpine and coastal regions, but is particularly noteworthy for the fine graphic depiction of the mountains and Valleys in the north.

Sir John Richardson (1740/41-1795), was a lawyer and orientalist and his Dictionary, the first in Persian, Arabic and English, was published in two volumes in 1777 and 1780. Part I of our book preceded the dictionary in Volume I, and was also published separately in 1777. The ODNB describes it as "a long, intellectually ambitious and highly polemical (work). Those who tried to write the history of Eastern peoples without using Eastern sources were particular objects of his disdain. One of those thus attacked, Jacob Bryant, retaliated in An Apology to Richardson, to which Richardson replied in a second edition of his 'Dissertation". Part II which is only in the second edition and enlarges the work by some 200 pages. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        An Inquiry Into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

      London: Strahan and Cadell, 1778. The scarce second edition (first published in 1776) and the only other edition to be published in quarto format. Two quarto volumes (280 x 215 mm, text being 200*130 and uncut 300*230, so a real large-paper copy). [8], 510; [6], 589, [1=blank] pp. Without half-title in Volume II (no copies known with half-title in Volume I). Early 20th-century dark blue halfcloth with marbled boards. Top edge stained red. Some page edges browned, occasional spotting, severe on quire 3M of Volume I and 2N of Volume II, discrete repair to blank area of p 115 of Volume II. PROVENANCE: Municipal Museum Warrington, its bookplate at fpep and some small stamps. Some old handwriting in pencil. Minor edgewear. Adam Smith (1723-1790) spent ten years in the writing and perfecting of The Wealth of Nations. "The book succeeded at once, and the first edition was exhausted in six months. Whether it be true or not, as Buckle said, that the Wealth of Nations was, in its ultimate results, probably the most important that had ever been written it is probable that no book can be mentioned which so rapidly became an authority both with statesmen and philosophers" (D.N.B.). "The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange Labour represents the three essential elements wages, profit and rent and these three also constitute income. From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter stock which compasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or for the return which it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control The Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is complete convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (Printing and the Mind of Man 221, describing the 1776 first edition). The second edition is the rarest of the early editions of The Wealth of Nations. Only 500 copies were printed. The third edition consisted of 1,000 copies and the fourth 1,250 copies. It is unknown how many copies of the more common first edition were published. "The second edition exhibits a number of alterations large and small, some providing new information, some correcting matters of fact, some perfecting the idiom, and large number now documenting references in footnotes" (William B. Todd, in the 1976 Oxford edition of The Wealth of Nations). Kress B.154. Goldsmiths 11663. Sabin 82303. Grolier, 100 English, 57 (describing the 1776 first edition)..

        Oliver Wolcott, Jr.

      May 1778. Endorsement signature <I>"Olivr Wolcott Aud[itor]"</I> signed vertically over the face of a most curious Autograph Letter Signed by Justice of the Peace, John Hempsted, one page, oblong quarto (9" x 7.5"), [New London, Connecticut], May 1778. Part letter and part invoice, Hempsted reports to state treasurer, John Lawrance at Hartford on the case of an anonymous Frenchman found dead at low tide in New London harbor. Hemptead, besides being a justice of the peace, was also a captain in the 3rd Connecticut State Regiment. He is perhaps best known for his narrative description of Benedict Arnold's 1781 raid on New London. Hempsted writes: <I>"Sir I send you here a Bill of Cost which arose on account of a Stranger that was Drounded [sic] by all probability in our harbour from on board the french Ship that was here but is now gon[e] the body Drove out of the harbour & Came on Shore upon the Lower part of the Great neck in this town about five miles from town the Cost of Jury & Constables fees together with his Burying & was £2..6..9 there was some money in his pocket shoes on his feet which partly payd ye cost viz 1..0..3..."</I> Wolcott adds his endorsing signature vertically over Hempsted's letter. The document is accompanied by an additional manuscript Document, one page, 7" x 3", [no place, no date but contemporary with the above document], a <I>"Coppy [sic] of an Inventory of Sundrys taken from a Dead body of a man supposed to be a French man by a Book in his pocket Viz. one piece of Silver money a Crown peace [sic] @ £0-6-8 one Doller [sic] bill & one 1/2 of a Doller Continentel [sic] -- 0-8-0 one 5 d one 2 Connecticut Bills - 0-0-7 one p[ai]r Shoos [sic] taken of his feet ---- 0-5-0"</I> Little is known about this mysterious "French Ship". It was not part of D'Estaing's fleet that didn't arrive at the Delaware Capes from Tulon until July 2, 1778. The ship may have been a merchant ship delivering military stores from France. Light creases, folds a tad ragged, else fine condition, very bright and clean overall. Oliver Wolcott (1726-1797) Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Connecticut, later served as Governor of Connecticut.

Mezzotint engraving on a vellin type paper. Description: Original antique master print. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text. These can both be prints made by old masters (artists) or prints made by others (artists, engravers, etchers) after old masters.Artists and Engravers: Engraved by Boydell after a painting by Van Dyke. This print was published by John Boydell, in 1778. Sir Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641) was a Flemish artist. He became the leading court painter in England after enjoying great succes in Italy and Flanders. His elegant but casual portraits of court and nobility would set the style in English portrait painting for the next 150 years. Beside his portraits, Van Dyke is known for his mythological and biblical subject treatment. Josiah Boydell (1752-1817) was a British painter, engraver and publisher, who worked closely with his uncle, the publisher John Boydell. Josaih was trained in mezzotint engraving by Richard Earlom. One of his main commissions was to draw the picture collection of Richard Walpole. Condition: Very good, given age. Foxing, mainly in the right and bottom margins. General age-related toning and/or occasional light soiling from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: DP-P1-19 The overall size is ca. 16.5 x 25.6 inch.

Jakob Friedrich Isenflamm, "zu Erlangen, war am 21. September 1726 zu Wien geboren, studirte von 1744 an in Erlangen, erlange 1749 daselbst die Doctorwürde mit der Diss.: "De congestionum mechanismo", lebte von 1750 bis 1762 in Wien, wo er die Vorlesungen Van Swieten's, De Haen's u.A. besuchte und nebenbei Praxis trieb, verfasste auch 1762 zwei kleinere Schriften "De spiritu in morbis tentamen" und "Versuch von denen Ursachen der gegenwärtigen Berufskrankheiten", machte 1762 eine wissenschaftliche Reise nach Holland und Frankreich und wurde 1763 mit dem Charakter als Hofraht zum 3.ordentlichen Professor der Medicin und Anatomie an der Universität Erlangen berufen, welche Professur er 1764 antrat noch in demselben Jahre zum 2., 1791 zum 1. Professor der Medicin auf. 1778 wurde ihm Seitens der Erlanger philosophischen Facultät die Doctorwürde verliehen. Er starb am 23. Februar 1793. Seine Schriften sind ziemlich zahlreich, darunter aber keine grössere Werke. Ausser einer Anzahl von mehr als 4 Dutzend kleiner Abhandlungen, Gelegenheitsschriften, Dissertationen über die allerverschiedensten Gegenstände, hat er 4 Schriften herausgegeben, die alle die gleiche Anlage und Tendenz haben und auch analoge Titel führen, nämlich: "Versuch einiger praktischer Anmerkungen über die Nerven, zur Erläuterungen verschiedener Krankheiten derselben, vornehmlich hypochondrischer und hysterischer Zustände" (1774), sowie ähnliche Schriften über die Muskeln (1778), Knochen (1782), Eingeweide (1784). Seine grosse Gewandtheit in fremden Sprachen benutzte er theils für eine neue Ausgabe von Steph. Blancard's "Lexicon medicum" (2 voll., 1776-78), welche eine Erklärung der medicinischen Termini technici giebt, theils für die Uebersetzung mehrer botanischer und zoologischer Abhandlungen (des Freih. v.
