        Naval Architecture or the Rudiments and Rules of Ship Building Exemplified in a Series of Draughts and Plans. With Observations Tending to the Further Improvement of that Important Art

      London, 1787. Folio. (4, vi) 231, (4) pp. Second edition of a very important English contribution to naval shipbuilding. From the Scott Collection of the Institution of Naval Architects. Stalkartt, writing in the midst of the American Revolution (he refers to it in his dedication) proposes two major changes in English naval ship design — a midship bend forward of the center, and fair, instead of hollow, waterlines. “A neglected and important work”—McDonald 269. Roeding I:166, comparing its importance with Chapman. Scott, 380. Attractively rebound in antique style calf over marbled boards. Front inner hinge cracked but holding. This copy is complete textually, but lacks the atlas of 14 plates.

        Wallis's New Dissected Map of World. Engraved from the latest authorities for the use of young students in Geography. Published by John Wallis Jun., 188 Strand. S. J. Wallis Sr., Warwick Sq.

      The only known example of the earliest dissected puzzle map to show the three voyages of Captain Cook.  [Title from lid]. London : John Wallis Senior, 1787; reissued by John Wallis Junior, 1806-1808. Engraved map of the world with the imprint 'Published as the Act directs, Jany. 1st 1787 by Proprietor J. Wallis at his Map Warehouse, Ludgate Street, London', original hand colouring, pasted on wood and dissected into 69 pieces, housed in the original publisher's cedar box with sliding lid, printed title label, slip label 'World' to title label and also side panel, contemporary inscription inside the lid 'Henry Samuel Daller from his affectionate sister S.M. Daller', further inscribed inside the box 'Outside pieces 29 / Inside pc. 40 / total 69 / H S Daller / from his sister / S M Daller / 1811'; some age toning but complete and in fine condition. The first known puzzle map was issued by John Bowles in 1759; John Spilsbury began manufacturing in 1767, and the London map seller, publisher and maker of board games John Wallis Senior produced his first puzzle map, Darton's Kings and Queens, in 1787. The map depicted in the present puzzle was originally published in 1787 by John Wallis Senior, who occupied premises in Ludgate Hill from 1775. The firm moved, and Wallis Senior was located at 13 Warwick Square from 1805 to 1811, while John Wallis Junior was located at 188 Strand from 1806 to 1808. This dates the issue of this map in puzzle format to between 1806 and 1808. It is jointly published by son and father, with the son's name listed first as he is issuing the map in the format of a puzzle, most likely utilising unsold maps still held in stock by the family. The puzzle is one of a series, the slip title 'World' pasted onto the printed label. On other examples located in institutions, the title label has been substituted with 'America', 'Somerset', 'Europe', etc. The map itself is based on an earlier map by Thomas Kitchen and shows the three voyages of Cook, with 'Diemen's Land' still joined to the continent of New Holland. Wallis would publish other world maps in dissected puzzle format, with the same title label to the box; however, the maps are of a later date and bear the address '42 Skinner Street'. The State Library of New South Wales holds an earlier puzzle map, dated 1772-1775, which shows the route of Cook's first voyage; while the National Library of Australia has a puzzle map by Palmer from 1794 which shows Cook's three voyages. Like the Wallis example offered here, the Palmer example may have been issued in puzzle format later than the date of its imprint. With an imprint of 1787, it would appear that the example we offer here is the earliest puzzle map to show the three voyages of Cook. Not in Hannas; not in Whitehouse. No other example located.

        [BOTANY BAY]. The whole proceedings on the trials of two informations

      exhibited ex officio by the King's Attorney-General against George Gordon, Esq. commonly called Lord George Gordon : one for a libel on the Queen of France and the French Ambassador; the other for a libel on the judges, and the administration of the laws in England. Also of Thomas Wilkins, for printing the last-mentioned libel. Tried in the court of King's Bench, Guildhall, on Wednesday the 6th of June, 1787; before the Hon. Francis Buller, Esq. on of the justices of his Majesty's court of King's Bench. Taken in short-hand by Joseph Gurney. London : M. Gurney, 1787. Octavo, modern wrappers, pp 100, [2, lacking a final leaf of advertisements]. Joseph Gurney published a series of court reports from the 1770s - 1790s, including notably the trial against Thomas Paine in 1793.Lord George Gordon (1751-1793) was a British politician who, in his short but rich life, was embroiled in a number of controversies. He agitated against Catholic emancipation in 1780, resulting in a series of large scale demonstrations known as the 'Gordon Riots', and was imprisoned for several months in the Tower of London. Later, Gordon was excommunicated by the Archibishop of Canterbury for refusing to bear witness in an ecclesiastical suit in 1786. In 1787, at the age of 36, he converted to Judaism, took the name Yisrael bar Avraham Gordon, was circumcised, and lived the rest of his life as a devout orthodox Jew. This highly unusual act was widely commented on at the time and is discussed in a number of scholarly histories of Judaism in England. In 1786 Gordon authored a small pamphlet, 'The prisoners' petition to the Right Hon. Lord George Gordon, to preserve their lives and liberties, and prevent their banishments to Botany Bay', which was in fact entirely written by Gordon himself and printed in London by Thomas Wilkins. Criticising the judiciary for sentencing prisoners to transportation to an as-yet non-existant penal colony at Botany Bay, Gordon was charged with "for a libel on the judges and administration of law in England'. No copy of this pamphlet is known to have survived, though Ferguson records it as item 10 in his Bibliography of Australia on the basis of reference to it in a collection of state trials published later in 1783. Further, this account of the trial by Gurney evinces its existance, as he records the Solicitor-General presenting it in evidence during the prosecution. Gordon's second charge of libel against Queen Marie Antoinette and the French Ambassador, relates to a separate pamphlet he published where he defended his friend the Italian Count Cagliostro who had been banished from France following his alleged involvement in the Affair of the Diamond Necklace, a highly important political event where the Queen was accused of attempting to defraud the Crown Jewellers of a valuable diamond necklace. This stain upon her Majesty's reputation, in conjunction with other failures of the nobility, served to provide the background of hostility against the monarchy which culminated in the French Revolution. Gordon was convicted on both counts of libel, however, he was allowed to leave the court without bail, and subsequently escaped to the safety of The Netherlands. Upon pressure from the French he was forced to return in January 1788, was arrested, and sentenced to 5 years in Newgate Prison. On 28th January 1793 Gordon's sentence expired, he was required to appear before the court to vouch for his future good behaviour. At his appearance, Gordon refused to remove his hat, which was being utilised as a kippah, and it was forcibly removed from his head. Gordon had brought as character witnesses two Polish Jews, which the Court would not accept, and he was remanded once more in prison. On November 1st he died in prison from fever at the age of 42. No copy of Gordon's incendiary pamphlet of 1786 is know to have survived, however its contents are contained herein as part of the evidence transcribed in Gurney's record of 1787. Unknown to Ferguson and held in only a handful of libraries, this 1787 pamphlet records the first objections to the penal colony at Botany Bay, expressed in court while the First Fleet was en route under sail to New Holland. A single copy recorded in Australian collections (State Library of NSW, also appearing to lack the final two leaves of advertisements). Not in Ferguson.

      1787 - In-8 de 388 pp., veau havane glacé, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale. Très bel exemplaire. Lorsqu'en 1787 les protestants réclamèrent l'état civil, l'abbé Bonnaud, ex-jésuite, fut chargé par quelques catholiques de combattre les prétentions des réformés. Il écrivit ce fameux et volumineux discours, dans lequel il espéra démontrer qu'une telle concession exposerait le trône et la France à de grands malheurs. Comme la duchesse de Noailles en faisait elle-même la distribution avec beaucoup d'activité, et qu'elle allait le porter chez les membres du conseil et du parlement, on l'appela le Mémoire de madame de Noailles.

Obwohl in ca. 1000 Ex. aufgelegt, sind vollständige Sammlungen dieses unschätzbaren Quellenwerks doch äusserst selten " - Erschien in 12 Vierteljahrsheften. - Das von Joseph von Sonnenfelnd angeregte und von dem Wiener Dichter und Zensor Alois Blumauer (1755-1798) redigierte Journal "hat später vielen freimaurerischen Zeitschriften zum Vorbild gedient und wurde von ihnen bis tief ins 19. Jahrhundert hinein ausgeschöpft und immer wieder mit und ohne Quellenangabe nachgedruckt" (Kuéss/Scheichelbauer, 200 Jahre Freimaurerei in Österreich, 1959, p. 51). - Das erste Heft des zweiten Jahrgangs enthält auf einer gest. Notentafel den Erstdruck "Zur Gesellenreise", SS. 117-118 enthalten den Text von Joseph Franz Ratschky in der Version des Logenbruders Mozarts, Johann Baptist Holzer, der auf dem Notenblatt auch als Komponist ("von Br. H++r") angegeben wird. Es wird vermutet, dass Mozart Holzers Version des Liedes bei seinem eigenen Beförderungsritual in den Gesellengrad hörte und sich davon zur "Gesellenreise" (KV 468) inspirieren ließ. - Des weiteren enthält das 2. Vj. des ersten Bandes einen Notendruck auf 2 Bll. mit der gleichen Signatur, "Im Namen der Armen", das eine starke strukturelle Ähnlichkeit mit der heutigen, österreichischen Hymne "Land der Berge, Land am Strome" aufweist. Seit den 1960er Jahren diskutieren Musikwissenschaftler, ob die Musik der Landshymne nun von Mozart, wie lange angenommen, oder doch von Holzer stammt. - Im 1. Vj. des ersten Jahres mit einem Beitrag von Ignaz von Born "Ueber die Mysterien der Aegyptier", der als Vorbild für "Sarastro" in Mozarts Zauberflöte angesehen wird. - Aus der Charlesworth Masonic Library. - Titel mi kl. zeitgen.

        Méthode de nomenclature chimique, propose par MM. de Morveau, Lavoisier, Bertholet, & de Fourcroy. On y a joint un nouveau systême de caractères chimiques, adaptés à cette nomenclature, par MM. Hassenfratz & Adet.

      Chez Cuchet, 1787., Paris: - 8vo. [iv], 314 pp. Half-title, woodcut title-page vignette, headpiece, tailpieces, 6 folding tables of chemical symbols, 1 folding plate; page 1 of the text trimmed at top margin and mounted on a stub, foxed. Contemporary full mottled calf, red leather spine label, gilt-stamped spine; foot of spine chipped, corners of read cover chewed. Ownership signature on title. Very good. FIRST EDITION, second issue, second printing, with the flowered vase on the title-page (previously a cherub) and no colophon on page 314. Lavoisier’s new terminology of chemistry was an important part of his reforms in the science, and it has been in use, with some modifications, ever since its introduction. "The merits of the new nomenclature are, even today, more than evident since, with only slight modification, it is still the basis of the language of modern chemistry." [Duveen & Klickstein, pp. 119-126]. Louis Guyton de Morveau was trained as a lawyer who taught himself the subject of chemistry. From 1776-1789 he taught public courses in chemistry at the Dihon Academy. He was professor of chemistry at the Ecole Polytechnique from 1794-1811, twice serving as its director.

        Éloge du Capitaine Cook Par M Blanc Gilli, de Marseille

      Paris: chez Morin, 1787. A fine copy.. Octavo, 118 pp. (last blank), period-style red crushed morocco, spine gilt with raised bands. A very scarce book: this florid and rather entertaining elegy for Cook, published in Paris, shows the very high regard in which Cook was held in Enlightenment France, as both navigator and scientist.Blanc-Gilli explicitly claims that Cook was as widely respected in France as in England, 'a statement which is borne out by the fact that the centenary of his death was celebrated in Paris but not in London' (Holmes). The elegy is a glowing narrative of Cook's life and voyages enriched with a 24 page appendix (including notes on other voyagers to the South Seas, Cook's importance to the history of astronomy, and references to contemporary philosophers such as Rousseau).Mathieu Blanc Gilli, a resident of Marseille, was a politically active pamphleteer who served briefly in the Legislative Assembly before falling foul of rivals during the French Revolution and retiring to an obscure provincial post. He published on a wide range of reforms, including an abolitionist pamphlet critical of the plantation system in Santo Domingo.Forbes could locate only the copies in the Mitchell Library and three American libraries (including Sir Maurice Holmes' copy at UCLA). The National Library of Australia has since acquired a copy.

        Voyage au Cap de Bonne-Espérance, et autour du monde avec le capitaine Cook et principalement dans les pays des Hottentots et des Caffres. Avec cartes, figures et planches en taille douce. Traduit par M. Le Tourneur.

      - Paris, Buisson, 1787. Three volumes in three. 8vo (19.3 x 12.2 cm). 1,155 [xxxii, 390; 367; 366] pp.; double-sized frontispiece, 15 [2; 7; 6] copper-engraved plates and one large, folded engraved map. Contemporary uniform full polished calf. Boards with gilt pattered borders and gilt dentelles. Spine with gilt floral vignettes and green morocco labels with gilt titles. Marbled endpapers.l First French 8vo edition. Translated by M. le Tourneur. Sparrman, a Swedish naturalist, sailed around the world with Captain Cook on his second voyage; most of this work is devoted to the various travels in South Africa. Originally published in Swedish, this work was soon translated into English, German, Dutch, and French. The French translation, published by Buisson, came in a quarto and an 8vo edition. The latter was immediately counterfeited. It can be recognized by several deviations, the most noticeable being a) the typeface is slightly smaller; b) the large, folded map of South Africa has slightly thicker lines, and the word "Giraffe" touches the plate frame; - more peculiar - c) the large, folded frontispiece is engraved in reverse, being a perfect mirror image of the original plate; and - even more apparent - d) the images of African mammals are reversed and reduced in size. The original edition, like this set, has the plates larger, folded, and in fact identical to those in the 4to edition. The first two plates show Hottentot clothes, jewelry, and and weapons. The work also contains the work of Smeathman on termites in French translation and with all the fine plates, usually sold separately from about €500 and up. Plate VII in volume 2 cut without loss (binder's error). Boards very slightly worn at edges; a few pages with a light, marginal damp-stain, a few spots, mostly in the margins; otherwise a fine set in attractive bindings.

        Feudalism and Seigneurial Justice - Ancien Régime France

      Castelnaudary, 14 August 1787. An extensive manuscript document detailing the complexities of a purchase of a feudal land ('domaine directe') in South France, made by French noble Bernard Dolmières, Seigneur de Lastourzeilles [Lord of Touzeilles], specifically outlining claims for the distribution of proceeds from the sale, and monies owing from the seller's vassals based on existing contracts, many of the parties involved also being Lords, or upperclass gentry and wealthy merchants. The land in question was a manorial estate "Domaine de La Salle" and the particulars were decided upon by a juge-mage of the seignorial court (senechaussee and presidial court) of Lauraguais, situated in the town of Castelnaudary. Includes a list of twenty-two persons implicated in this transaction, including claimants. Qto. 228 pages in manuscript, written recto and verso onto vellum leafs. All text is in French. Docketed on 2 September 1787. Detailed inscription with list of names, signed and dated in the original by a Mr. Crouzet, scribe or secretary to Lord Dolmières, on 7 September 1787. Manuscript annotations "1e Cayér", "2e Cayér," numbered 1 to 19, made in a different ink, may be referring to the "Cayer/Cahier de doléances des sénéchaussées" (a book of grievances and requests which was made by the people prior to a General Assembly of nobles and for their consideration). Features 57 revenue stamps from the Toulouse office, stamped throughout at upper center of some leafs. Solid early nineteenth century binding, ivory paper over thick boards. Volume measures approximately 21 x 29 x 3 cm. Bernard Dolmières (born 1741) was Lord of Lastouzeilles and Montferrand; he is also connected to the Château de Las Touzeilles, in Palleville, situated some twenty-five kilometers from Castelnaudary, and some twenty-eight kilometers from Montferrand. In the archives of Aude which mentions the former county called Lauraguais, he is listed as an attendee of a General Assembly in 1788 and described as "Messire Bernard Dolmières de Las Touzeilles, chevalier, habitant de Castelnaudary, possesseur de directes, fiefs, et biens nobles dans les juridictions de Montferrand, Labastide-d'Anjou et Avignonet." A man of great wealth, with substantial earnings from peasant tenants on his lands, this document pertains to the "Domaine de La Salle" suggesting that he also held a feudal estate in Lasalle, which is now in the Gard department in southern France. Upon the announcement in 1789 that feudal privileges of the nobles were abolished, in particular monetary dues paid by a peasant to the lord, such as the "banalités" of manorialism, Dolmières wrote to the governing body of the Commune if Montferrand to declare a renunciation of his title of Lorship. Dolmières was present at the General Assembly for the three levels of nobles of the Seneschal of Castelnandary, held on 28 February 1789, and surely the one 4 on August 1789 when the changes were announced. [In the earliest stages of the French Revolution, on August 4, 1789 the dues that a peasant had to pay to the lord, such as the banalités of Manorialism, were abolished by the National Constituent Assembly. Noble lands were stripped of their special status as fiefs; the nobility were subjected to the same taxation as their co-nationals, and lost their privileges (the hunt, seigneurial justice, funeral honors). The nobles were, however, allowed to retain their titles. Nevertheless, it was decided that certain annual financial payments which were owed the nobility and which were considered "contractual" (i.e. not stemming from a usurpation of feudal power, but from a contract between a landowner and a tenant) such as annual rents (the cens and the champart) needed to be bought back by the tenant for the tenant to have clear title to his land.] In May 1794, only 7 years after the present document was made for him, Bernard Dolmières was imprisoned during the French Revolution Reign of Terror, by order of a decree made in March 1793 for religious oppression. He was a Carmelite, a wealthy and influential man. Owing to ill health, however, he was released from incarceration and confined to his own home under voluntary house arrest. Because he was "of great nobility and also a fanatic" Dolmières was denied the all-important "certificat de civisme" - a document which proved a person's ideological soundness and prevented indefinite imprisonment under the Law of Suspects. A book published in 1895, "Les reclus de Toulouse sous la terreur" describes Bernard Dolmières, his renunciation of nobility, and the circumstances of his imprisonment and religious oppression. From the final era of the Ancien Régime, during the reign of Louis XVI (Restorer of French Liberty and the last King of France), survives this uncommon manorial document which illuminates the feudal rights and judicial system of nobles in South France, still in effect at the dawn of the French Revolution, in this case pertaining to a Lord who was also significant in a religious order and subsequently oppressed seven years later by the Reign of Terror. The purpose of the document is revealed in the two final pages of the volume, the writer stating that, at the behest of Lord Dolmières of Las Touzeilles, following his Lordship's purchase of a domain or fiefdom, "Domaine de La Salle" all parties having made a financial claim had been notified of the court ruling. All names, titles and/or trades, are produced: twenty-two persons, mostly nobles and upperclass civilians. The manuscript appears to be a direct transcript from the seigneurial court document, and contains each of the verdicts with supporting details. The statement is dated only two weeks after the so-called trial of justice, and reads as follows: "L'an mil sept sents quatre vingt sept [1787] et le 3e du mois de September... au Senechal et Presidial de Castelnaudary y resident sous signée - La Requette de Mr. Bernard Dolmières Seigneur de Lastourzeilles poursuivant la distribution, j'ai intimé et signifié la sentence cy dessus en suivant ca forme et teneur." Some fascinating and historically significant individuals were involved in this transaction, including a king's royal knight, a jeweller, a known juge-mage, other nobles, and wealthy widows, the lot still to be investigated in ancient records. We find several mentions of François Carrau, for example, which is also a family connected to nobility. Other surnames found herein include Carut, Galabert, and Vaissette. The first named is "Marie Antoine Guillaume Jules de Paulo, Chevalier Vicomte de Calmont, Baron de Sevillac et de Saint Marcel, Seigneur de Saint Jean Deltore, la Sauvetat... Sergent-Royal..." From a celebrated family descending from Antoine de Paulo, a Grand Master of the Order of Malta, on 29 March 1787 he became a Royal Knight to Louis XVI King of France. His son and namesake, born in Toulouse in 1776, would later become a brigadier in the king's army. Economic feudalism, seigneurial justice, nobles' financial rights, and the proceedings of the hierarchal court system of ancient France are illustrated firsthand in this surviving manuscript, which, unknown to the participants at the time, also marks the end of the era of such extreme privileges and absolutism. The extensive single document contains numerous verdicts made at a seneschal court concerning monetary claims resulting from a transfer of ownership of a fiefdom in South France, all decisions being made by a single judge whom was also a noble. It forms an excellent presentation of feudal rights enjoyed by French nobility just before they were stripped away by the French Revolution Excerpts from the manuscript: "Marie Antoine Guillaume Jules de Paulo, Chevalier Vicomte de Calmont, Baron de Sevillac et de Saint Marcel, Seigneur de Saint Jean Deltore, la Sauvetat... rejoinant et autres placer... a Lauragais...

[Expedited at Castelnaudary on 14 August 1787.] End excerpts. Messire Bernard Dolmières (born 1741) was Lord of Lastouzeilles and Montferrand. He was a Carmelite, a wealthy noble and influential man, also a philanthropist. His principle residence was at Castelnaudary, in a region formerly known as Lauraguais. He also possessed feudal lands called 'domaine directe,' fiefs, and noble estates in the regions of Montferrand, Labastide-d'Anjou, and Avignonet. During the French Revolution Reign of Terror, only 7 years after the present document was made for him, in May 1794 Bernard Dolmières was imprisoned by order of a decree made in March 1793 for religious oppression. Owing to ill health, however, he was released from incarceration and confined to his own home under voluntary house arrest. Because he was "of great nobility and also a fanatic" Dolmières was denied the all-important "certificat de civisme" - a document which proved a person's ideological soundness and prevented indefinite imprisonment under the Law of Suspects. A book published in 1895 describes Bernard Dolmières, Lord of Lastouzeilles and Montferrand, and records the circumstances of his imprisonment in 1794. Evidently, upon the announcement in 1789 that feudal privileges of the nobles were abolished, in particular monetary dues paid by a peasant to the lord, such as the banalités of Manorialism, Dolmières wrote to the governing body of the Commune if Montferrand to declare a renunciation of his title of Lorship. Titled, "Les reclus de Toulouse sous la terreur: Registres officiels concernant les citoyens emprisonnés comme suspects" the following excerpt pertains to Dolmières. "Bernard Dolmières, domicilié à Toulouse, 7e son, âgé de 52 ans, marié, ayant trois enfans; reclus depuis le 26 germinal conformément à l'arrêté du 14." ["Germinal" was the seventh month in the French Republican Calendar. The month started 20 or 21 March.] "Ci devant noble, jouissant d'un revenu de 10,000 livres dont le revenu est un peu diminué & ou est comprise l'adot de son épouse de 80,000 livres plus 71,000 livres de capitaux. * Avec les aristocrates & les fanatiques. * D'un caractère fort tranquille, n'ayant jamais rien fait en faveur de la Révolution." "Approuvé. "En réclusion chez lui pour cause de maladie". "B. D'OLMIÈRES, seigneur de Lastouzeilles Et de Montferrand, faisait partie de ces gentilshommes à esprit plus généreux que prudent qui saluèrent la Révolution comme apportant la félicité aux Français & un régime dont la base serait la fraternité dans es qu'elle a de plus élevé. Dès l'annonce de la suppression des droits féodaux, il écrivit à la Commune de Montferrand pour lui déclarer sa renonciation aux droits seigneuriaux qu'il possédait, « renonciation qu'il maintiendrait même si l'Assemblée constituante revenait sur sa décision. » Chef de la légion de Montferrand, il prit à sa charge tous les frais quelconques d'équipement, &, quand eut lieu le premier appel de la levée de mars 1793, il donna à sa commune 1,000 livres pour aider les volontaires, 600 livres pour le méme objet à Peycens, autant à Issel & à la Bastide-d'Anjou. Enveloppé dans les grandes arrestations d'avril 1793, d'Olmières fut élargi le 9 mai suivant par jugement du Comité de sûreté générale (de Toulouse), qui (le reconnaît citoyen s'étant de toutes manières prononcé pour la Révolution ». Atteint un an plus tard par l'arrêté de Dartigoeyte contre les nobles, d'Olmières dut se rendie à la prison des Carmélites; mais la faibleîse de sa vue s'aggrava par la réclusion, &, sur un certificat signé de l'oculiste Nizet & du professeur Larrey, chirurgien en chef de l'hôpital général Saint Joseph de la Grave, il sortit le quatrième jour sans-culottide an II pour rester en réclusion chez lui. Une pétition de Mme d'Olmières au représentant du peuple Mallarmé obtint l'élargissement de son mari le 21 vendémiaire an III. D'Olmières s'était vu refuser un certificat de civisme du Conseil général de la Commune parce qu'il était « de grande noblesse et fanatique »." [End excerpts] His ancestors include: •Paul d'OLMIÈRES (ca 1600-1676), Bourgeois de Montferrand, then in the diocese of Saint-Papoul •Paul Dolmières (1639-1713), Seigneur de Las Tousseilles Docteur, avocat au Parlement de Toulouse, capitoul depuis 1683, syndic du diocèse de Saint-Papoul, maire de Saint-Papoul à Montferrand; •Bernard Dolmières, sieur de Las Touzeilles was born 1672; •Louis d'Olmières, Seigneur de Las Touzeilles et Callaguès, co-seigneur de Montferrand et de Labastide d'Anjou ca 1614-1664, Conseiller du roi, receveur des tailles du diocèse de St-Papoul, fermier de la baillie royale d'Avignonnet.. He is connected to the Château de Lastouzeilles near Palleville through his ancestry, and may have been in possession of it until it was sold in 1806. French historic documents record that sometime shortly after 1550, an ancestor, Louis d'Olmières, Seigneur de Las Touzeilles et de Montferrand et Labastide, possessed "un château appellé las Touseilles sive Lencauderon" with "écuries, fournial, grange, le tout dans l'enclos de la basse-cour, pigeonnier, garenne, jardin, verger, allée, terre labourable, prés et hermes, joignant ensemble une autre maison appelée Le Gallaguès, 31 sétérées deux carterias, place de moulin à vent - et plus de 43 sétérées de terres et bois, ainsi que des censives. Le Gallaguès doit loger les fermiers ou métayers de L. d'Olmières." The castle was sold in 1806, possibly by Bernard Dolmières, who would have been aged 65 at the time [further research warranted]. The purchaser was Jean-Louis de Gouttes whose descendants retain ownership today. The Carmelites, a Roman Catholic religious order is believed to have been founded in the 12th century, on Mount Carmel in the Crusader States. By the middle of the 17th century, the Carmelites had reached their zenith, however, became involved in controversies with other orders, particularly with the Jesuits. The French Revolution, the secularization in Germany, and the repercussions on religious orders following the nineteenth century unification of Italy reduced the Carmelites to only approximately 200 men around the world. A Scant few notes on feudalism and seigneurial justice in France In early modern France, nobles maintained a great number of seigneurial privileges over the free peasants who worked lands under their control. They could, for example, levy the cens tax, an annual tax on lands leased or held by vassals. Nobles could also charge banalités for the right to use the lord's mills, ovens, or wine presses. Alternatively, a noble could demand a portion of vassals' harvests in return for permission to farm land he owned. Nobles also maintained certain judicial rights over their vassals, although with the rise of the modern state many of these privileges had passed to state control, leaving rural nobility with only local police functions and judicial control over violation of their seigneurial rights. Unlike the English, France permitted women to hold seigneurial land. When the wife of a noble died, she would inherit the land. Some women took charge of managing the land and finances, while some held onto it only as long as a son came of age or was able to farm it or manage it. The English term bailiwick originated in France (bailie being the Old French term for a bailiff). Under the ancien régime in France, the bailli was the king's representative in a bailliage, charged with the application of justice and control of the administration. In southern France, the term generally used was sénéchal (cf seneschal) who held office in the sénéchaussée. The administrative network of baillages was established in the 13th century, based on the earlier medieval fiscal and tax divisions (the 'baillie') which had been used by earlier sovereign princes. (For more on this French judicial system, see bailli, prévôt and Early Modern France.) In late medieval and early modern France, the seneschal was originally a royal steward overseeing the entire country, which developed into an agent of the crown charged with administration of a seneschalty (French: sénéchaussée), one of the districts of the crown lands in Languedoc and Normandy. The seneschals also served as the chief justice of the royal courts in their areas. At the time of the above-described document, there were eight sénéchaussée courts in Langedoc, including one each at Toulouse and Castelnaudary (for Lauragais), and some twenty to thirty thousand courts in the entire Kingdom of France including the New World. These were equivalent of a bailliage court in the north. A chief judge (juge-mage) assumed the seneschal's judicial functions in the south.

        Méthode de nomenclature chimique EDITION ORIGINALE

      à Paris: Chez Cuchet, 1787. Fine. Chez Cuchet, à Paris 1787, in-8 (12,5x19,5cm), (4) 314pp., relié. - first edition. Bound in full brown sheepskin contemporary. Back with nerves decorated. red calf as an exhibit. corners bumped. Scuffs on the borders and on the second flat. Small pits and traces of waterstains in the margins. misfolded boards in fine. A hole in the upper joint in the tail. The method is a manifesto for a revolution in the world of chemistry, and the birth of modern chemistry, a chemistry that resolutely turns his back to the past by becoming a scientist. This is Lavoisier, learned the most influential in the Academy of Sciences, which gathers around its theory and to support a crucially, the largest French chemists Fourcroy, Bertholet, Adet, Hassenfratz, and Guyton Morveau , that the already constituted group welcomes in Paris in February 1787. the latter joined the with advanced chemical nomenclature, which will be revisited by Lavoisier, which requires Morveau abandon its phlogiston theory (the principle of a fuel element in the air) which dates from the seventeenth since discovered the role of oxygen in the air. This is the price that is entrusted with the presentation of the new nomenclature. It is in the meeting on 2 May 1787 to the Academy of Sciences that will be imposed for the first time the terms oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. Adet Hassenfratz and are responsible for the proposed symbols for "new characters to use in Chemistry" which will not be very successful but promised a great future. The entire project is placed under the authority and will of Lavoisier, and the decision Morveau is the project is a political decision, which should enable better reception among foreign scholars. No one deceive them because it is Lavoisier who will be attacked by Western science. Book very important sign that the birth of scientific chemistry. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre de veau rouge. Coins émoussés. Épidermures sur les bordures et sur le second plat. Petites piqûres et traces de mouillures dans les marges. Page de titre en partie décousue. Planches mal repliées in-fine. Un trou au mors supérieur en queue. La Méthode constitue un manifeste pour une révolution dans le monde de la chimie, et la naissance de la chimie moderne, une chimie qui tourne résolument le dos au passé en devenant scientifique. C'est Lavoisier, savant le plus influent à l'Académie des sciences, qui réunit autour de sa théorie et pour la soutenir d'une façon déterminante, les plus grands chimistes français : Fourcroy, Berthollet, Adet, Hassenfratz, et Guyton de Morveau, que le groupe déjà constitué accueille à Paris en février 1787. Ce dernier les rejoint avec une nomenclature chimique avancée, laquelle sera revisitée par Lavoisier, qui exige de Morveau qu'il abandonne sa théorie phlogistique (principe d'un élément combustible dans l'air) qui date du XVIIème, puisqu'il a découvert le rôle de l'oxygène. C'est à ce prix que lui est confié la présentation de la nouvelle nomenclature. C'est dans la séance du 2 mai 1787 à l'Académie des Sciences que seront prononcés pour la toute première fois les termes « oxygène », « hydrogène », et « carbone ». Adet et Hassenfratz sont responsables de la proposition de symboles pour de « nouveaux caractères à employer en chimie », qui n'aura pas beaucoup de succès mais sera promis à un grand avenir. L'ensemble du projet se place sous l'autorité et la volonté de Lavoisier, et la décision que Morveau porte le projet est une décision politique, qui doit permettre une meilleure réception chez les savants étrangers. Nul ne s'y trompera car c'est Lavoisier qui sera attaqué par la science occidentale. Ouvrage très important qui signe l'acte de naissance de la chimie scientifique.

        Voyage au Cap de Bonne-Espérance, et autour du monde avec le capitaine Cook et principalement dans les pays des Hottentots et des Caffres. Avec cartes, figures et planches en taille douce. Traduit par M. Le Tourneur.

      Paris, Buisson, 1787. Three volumes in three. 8vo (19.3 x 12.2 cm). 1,155 [xxxii, 390; 367; 366] pp.; double-sized frontispiece, 15 [2; 7; 6] copper-engraved plates and one large, folded engraved map. Contemporary uniform full polished calf. Boards with gilt pattered borders and gilt dentelles. Spine with gilt floral vignettes and green morocco labels with gilt titles. Marbled endpapers.l First French 8vo edition. Translated by M. le Tourneur. Sparrman, a Swedish naturalist, sailed around the world with Captain Cook on his second voyage; most of this work is devoted to the various travels in South Africa. Originally published in Swedish, this work was soon translated into English, German, Dutch, and French. The French translation, published by Buisson, came in a quarto and an 8vo edition. The latter was immediately counterfeited. It can be recognized by several deviations, the most noticeable being a) the typeface is slightly smaller; b) the large, folded map of South Africa has slightly thicker lines, and the word "Giraffe" touches the plate frame; - more peculiar - c) the large, folded frontispiece is engraved in reverse, being a perfect mirror image of the original plate; and - even more apparent - d) the images of African mammals are reversed and reduced in size. The original edition, like this set, has the plates larger, folded, and in fact identical to those in the 4to edition. The first two plates show Hottentot clothes, jewelry, and and weapons. The work also contains the work of Smeathman on termites in French translation and with all the fine plates, usually sold separately from about €500 and up. Plate VII in volume 2 cut without loss (binder's error). Boards very slightly worn at edges; a few pages with a light, marginal damp-stain, a few spots, mostly in the margins; otherwise a fine set in attractive bindings. Beddie, 1279; Brunet, 19857; Dal, p. 62, 321; Gay, 3125; Sallander, Bibliotheca Walleriana, 20277; Horn-Schenkling, 20545 (Smeathman).

        Dya-Na-Sore oder die Wanderer. Neue Auflage.

      5 Bände. Mit einem Titelkupfer (V. Kininger del., Cl. Kohl sc.), fünf gestochenen Titeln mit Vignette (J. Wertheim sc.) und fünf gestochenen Schlußvignetten (F. Ponheimer f.). Marmorierte Pappbde. d. Zt. mit späteren Rückenschildern. Goed. V, 460, 1 Rümann 214 Lanck./Oehler III 17 Wolfstieg 41514 Taute, Bundesromane 147. - Maßgebliche Ausgabe des bedeutenden utopischen Romans, gegenüber der Ausgabe von 1787 um 2 Bände erweitert. Der Verfasser hieß eigentlich nur Meyer (1759-1829), ein Kanonier aus Ansbach, der sich im Laufe eines bewegten Lebens zu einem "von Meyern" nobilitierte. Schiller rezensierte den Roman, Goethe las ihn zumindest und für Nietzsche stellte die Phantasmagorie eines spartanischen Heldenstaates wohl auch eine Inspiration dar. - Es "... findet sich hier viel Tiefes und Originelles, von einzigartigem, starkem Denkvermögen zeugend. Danach ist die Vergessenheit, in welche M. gesunken ist, als bitteres Unrecht zu beklagen. Seine Sprache ist ungemein kräftig, schwungvoll, ja fast dithyrambisch, reich an neuen, frischen Wortbildungen und Zusammensetzungen, kühnen Bildern und Wendungen, dabei knapp, präcis und in hohem Grade eindrucksvoll (ADB XXI, 643). - "Liest man, was Arno Schmidt in seinem Radio-Essay und Wolfgang Harich in seinem Jean-Paul-Buch über Dya-Na-Sore zu sagen haben, will man nicht glauben, daß beide vom selben Gegenstand handeln. Meyerns politisches Ideal ist für Schmidt das niedrigste, was es überhaupt geben kann: das Kriegerische!, für Harich aber ist es das höchste: das demokratischer Revolution ... Daß mit dem l. Band von Dya-Na-Sore der Anfang eines politisch-brisanten Romans vorlag, wußten weder Schiller noch Schink, die ihn rezensierten ... Bedenkt man, wann und wo dieser Roman geschrieben wurde, so ist das erstaunlich mutig und erklärt den Erfolg, den er trotz seiner künstlerischen Schwächen hatte. Doch vergeht einem die Freude an dieser demokratischen Literaturtradition, wenn man sieht, wie stark hier schon vorgebildet ist, was später einmal, 1933, Nationale Revolution genannt werden wird: Vergottung des Staates, Elite-Denken, Nationalhaß, Militarismus und Verherrlichung des Krieges - alles das also, was Arno Schmidt dazu veranlaßte, den Roman für Wehrkreisbüchereien zu empfehlen (aus G. de Bruyns Nachwort Taten und Tugenden. Meyern und sein deutsches Revolutionsmodell zur Neuausgabe von 1979, S. 951 ff.). - Aus der Charlesworth Masonic Library. - Etwas bestoßen. Tls. leicht stockfleckig. Zeitgen.

        Koningsplein Amsterdam - François Joseph Pfeiffer naar Jean George Teissier, 1787.

      DE SCHUTTERIJ OP HET KONINGSPLEIN?Gezigt van de parade der Amsterdamsche burger cavallerie op ?t konings-plein 1787?, stippel-ets vervaardigd door Fran?ois Joseph Pfeiffer, naar een tekening van Jean George Teissier, uitgegeven door Dirk Meland Langeveld. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 35 x 46 cm.We zien het Koningsplein in Amsterdam, komende vanuit de Heiligeweg naar de Herengracht en (in de achtergrond) de Leidsestraat, links de bloemenmarkt en rechts het Singel.De prent is een momentopname (eind september 1787) uit de periode dat de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden in crisis verkeert. Ons land balanceerde op het randje van een burgeroorlog tussen politieke vernieuwers (de patriotten) en aanhangers van stadhouder Willem V. De patriotten hadden zich sinds 1780 georganiseerd om bestuurlijke misstanden aan de kaak te kunnen stellen en om de incapabele stadhouder Willem V te controleren en in zijn macht te beperken.In 1784 braken in Rotterdam rellen uit tussen patriotten en orangisten. Op 15 september 1785 ontvluchtte Willem V Den Haag, nadat de Staten van Holland hem hadden ontheven van zijn functie als bevelhebber van het Haagse garnizoen. In Amsterdam en Rotterdam werden eind april 1787 een aantal prinsgezinde vroedschapsleden en burgemeesters vervangen, zonder goedkeuring van de stadhouder. De patriottische euforie zou echter maar kort duren. In juni 1787 besloot Wilhelmina van Pruisen, de vrouw van de stadhouder, terug te gaan naar Den Haag om de orangisten daar op te wekken tot verzet tegen de patriotten. Bij Goejanverwellesluis werd ze aangehouden, waarop haar broer, de koning van Pruisen, een enorm leger naar de Republiek stuurde om de orde te herstellen. Tegen deze overmacht hadden de patriotten geen verweer.De patriotten weken uit naar Amsterdam, maar reeds op 10 oktober gaf de stad zich over. Binnen enkele maanden zat Willem V weer stevig in het zadel en was de rust hersteld.Prijs: ?750,-.

Recke öffentlich gegen den berüchtigten Hochstapler, Glücksritter, Spieler und Betrüger (1743-1795) auftrat und die in ganz Europa Aufsehen erregte. Elisabeth v. d. Recke war anfänglich ebenso wie halb Europa von dem Abenteurer fasziniert, der es trotz zahlreicher Schwierigkeiten und Verfolgungen immer wieder schaffte, an anderen Orten Fuß zu fassen und bewundernde Gemeinden zu bilden. Doch sie distanzierte sich von ihm, als „einige von unsittlicher Lebensauffassung zeugende Aussprüche“ ihr Misstrauen weckten. Ihr Bericht von seinem Aufenthalt am Mitauer Hof im Jahr 1787 und von der betrügerischen Natur seiner dort erfolgten „magischen Operationen“ trug maßgeblich zum endgültigen Sturz Cagliostros bei, „der sich von diesem Schlage nicht wieder zu erholen vermochte."
