FOURCROY, [Antoine François] de, and [Jean Jacques] DELAPORTE.
FIRST EDITION. At the behest of the Faculty of Medicine, and "with the collaboration of Delaporte (of the Royal Society of Medicine) Fourcroy made very detailed analyses of the waters of Enghien, in the valley of Montmorency, and a large quantity was brought to Paris for further study. A full account of these waters was read by Fourcroy at ten successive meetings of the society and subsequently published in the present book... A balneological and analytical chemical classic, which is 'entirely chemical in content' (Duveen)" (Neville). As a result of this analysis the waters were recommended for various ailments, and Enghien developed into a fashionable resort.The book includes two further studies, on the waters of Saint-Germain-en-Laye (by Chappon), and Vaugirard.Cole 486.

CLARKSON,Thomas] :
Printed and Sold by J Phillips,London,1788.The Second Edition Revised and Considerably Enlarged. 8vo.pp.xxiv + 167 + 1 page cat.Bound in half calf, raised bands,marbled boards.Very Good. In 1785 Cambridge University held an essay competition with the title: "Is it rights to make men slaves against their wills?" Clarkson had not considered the matter before but after carrying out considerable research on the subject submitted his essay. Clarkson won first prize and was asked to read his essay to the University Senate. On his way home to London he had a spiritual experience. He later described how he had "a direct revelation from God ordering me to devote my life to abolishing the trade."Clarkson contacted Granville Sharp , who had already started a campaign to end the slave-trade. In 1787 Clarkson and Sharp formed the Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade . Of the twelve members on the committee, nine were Quakers. Influential figures such as John Wesley and Josiah Wedgwood gave their support to the campaign. Later they persuaded William Wilberforce the MP for Hull , to be their spokesman in the House of Commons . Thomas Clarkson was given the responsibility of collecting information to support the abolition of the slave trade. This included interviewing 20,000 sailors and obtaining equipment used on the slave-ships such as iron handcuffs, leg-shackles, thumb screws, instruments for forcing open slave's jaws and branding irons. In 1787 he published his pamphlet, A Summary View of the Slave Trade and of the Probable Consequences of Its Abolition. Clarkson was a brillia … [Click Below for Full Description]

In a blue half morocco and cloth clamshell case. Affectionate letter written by Lewis Morris to his son, Jacob, congratulating him on the birth of a daughter. Lewis Morris, the brother of Gouverneur Morris, was one of the few members of the landed gentry of the state of New York who supported the colonial cause. He served in the Continental Congress, was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and served in both the New York State Militia and its Senate. His son, Jacob, though educated for a mercantile career, was moved by the patriotic fervor of the times and served as aide to both generals Charles Lee and Nathanael Greene; he served with distinction at Fort Moultrie. After the war he served in the New York legislature; the town of Morris, New York, which he settled, is named for him. Lewis Morris writes: "My dear Son, I most sincerely congratulate you on Polly's safe delivery of as fine a girl as ever you saw, it looks like your Mother, the finest feature in her face is her nose, which is very large; Polly was delivered on the 21st instant, a little after four o'clock in the afternoon, by old Mother Sickels, and she had a very fine time of it, and the old woman went away well pleased after tea with her fee. She is now very well, and has her nurse with her who seems a good creature, so that we expect in a short time she will be down again and making her boys winter cloaks, … [Click Below for Full Description]

BAR, Jacques Charles.
(M., Sancha, 1788 y años siguientes), 40,5 x 25,5 cm., cartoné moderno, 130 hojas + 192 láminas iluminadas a mano representando la historia y hábitos de 96 órdenes. (Una de las obras más espléndidas y raras salidas de la imprenta de Sancha. La edición original francesa fue emprendida por Bar en 1778. Sancha empezó a publicar la versión española en 1788 en cuadernos de 6 láminas y quedó sin terminar. Según Cotarelo, a la muerte de Sancha llevaba entregados al público unos 20 cuadernos y posteriormente su hijo tiró algunos más. Ningún bibliógrafo sabe cuantas láminas llegaron a imprimirse. Así, por ejemplo, en El Grabado en España se afirma "Parece que se publicaron únicamente 188 estampas". El Catálogo Colectivo solo registra 4 ejemplares pero existe uno más en la Academia de la Historia que utilizó Rodríguez Moñino para su bibliografía de Sancha. Todos estos ejemplares tienen diferente número de láminas. El que mas tiene es el de la Biblioteca Episcopal del Seminario de Barcelona con 203 láminas, el de la Academia de la Historia 188, el de la Biblioteca Lázaro Galdiano 186 y el de la Biblioteca de Navarra sólo 94. Creemos que ninguno de estos ejemplares conservan la portada como ocurre también en el que anunciamos. Nuestro ejemplar, a diferencia de los otros conocidos, todas las láminas están coloreadas a mano de época y conserva todos los márgenes). ÓRDENES MILITARES RELIGIOSAS GRABADOS

JEFFERSON, Thomas (1743-1826)
Philadelphia: printed and sold by Prichard and Hall, 1788. 8vo. (7 5/8 x 4 1/2 inches). [4], 244 pp., plus folding table. Publisher's ads in rear. Expertly bound to style in half tree sheep over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, flat spine divided into six compartments with a gilt roll tool, red/brown morocco lettering piece in the second compartment. Housed in a brown morocco backed box. The first American edition of Jefferson's famous work. This is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime, and has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." Jefferson's greatest work was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. As J.M. Edelstein notes: "Jefferson wrote about things which interested him deeply and about which he knew a great deal; the Notes, therefore, throws a fascinating light on his tastes, curiosities, and political and social opinions." The story of the creation of this book and its publishing history is an interesting one and is described in full by Millicent Sowerby in her catalogue of Jefferson's library, where it occupies some thirty pages in small type. Often reprinted, the present edition is particularly desirable being the first to be published in America. This copy without foxing and with folding table and the ad leaf in the rear, both often lacking. Cf. Adam … [Click Below for Full Description]

A fine copy, with only a few scattered foxing spots and mainly marginal worm holes to several leaves in second volume, occasionally touching headlines, heavier on places but overall clean and fresh. First Spanish edition -first printed in Italian during the author´s exile.

The work deals with the country´s history, costumes, natural history and natives. Illustrated with three folding maps of Chili ¿two regional and the other including the Coast and handsomely decorated with a cartouche-, a frontispiece with the portrait of the author, three folding tables showing the state of Chili and one folding plan of the parks and fortresses in the border of Arauco.

MÜLLER, O.F.
1788. Hauniae, N. Mölleri/ N. Christensen, 1788-1806. 4 volumes bound in two. Folio (387 x 240mm). pp. v, (1), 52; (4), 56; (4), 71; (6), 46, with engraved title vignettes and 160 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt lettered spines in 6 compartments, marbled sides, upper edges gilt. A fine copy, of a very rare work, describing the marine fauna of Denmark and Norway. This beautifully produced work is one of the rarest zoological publications. Müller complains that no more than 25 copies had been sold in Denmark, not a single copy in Norway, two copies in Italy, 2 copies in England and 2 in France. "For the rest of his life he was able to live a financially carefree existence, having in May 1773 married the widow of a rich Norwegian merchant, Anna Carlsen, nee Paludan. Through his marriage Müller formed close ties with Norway, his 'new fatherland' as he occasionally called that country. During the remainder of his life he often spent the summer on his estate at Drobak, on Oslo Fiord, and he traveled a good deal about Norway, inland and along the coasts, studying and collecting material for his scientific work" (Anker). Müller was one of the first to use a dredge to collect specimens on a scale never used before. "Müller must therefore be regarded as one of the real pioneers in marine biology "(Anker). Müller died after the first two volumes had been published, the third volume was by P.C. Abildgaard and the concluding volume by P.C. Abildgaard, J.S. Holten, M. Vahl and J.Rathke. Most of the plates are by O.F. Müller's brother C.F. Müller. "I … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sophocles; Brunck, Richard Francis Frederick
Argentorati [Strasbourg]: 1788. Three quarter maroon morocco over marbled boards ruled in gilt, four raised bands, compartments paneled in gilt, gilt titles, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers. A very good set, boards rubbed, spines lighlty sunned, boards on final volume with repaired paper splits. 8vo. One of only 250 copies printed. "...elle est assez recherchée," Brunet. Didbin wrote "The popularity of Brunck's edition was very great; and was exceeded by no work to which that celebrated name was attached. But the dearness of the quarto edition prevented many from purchasing it. Brunck, therefore, brought out an octavo edition, in three vols. 1786-8: containing the Scholia and indexes, fully as complete as the quarto. In the year 1789 [this edition date 1788] he published another octavo edition, in three vols., very handsomely printed, of which only 250 copies were struck off, at his own expense. In this latter edition, the Scholia of Triclinius, and other recent scholia, are omitted, and some fresh notes are added," (Rare & Valuable Editions of Greek and Latin Classics, 4th ed.,Vol. 2, p.415). Richard Francis Frederick Brunck (1729-1803), a celebrated Greek scholar and critic, had such admiration of the authors he edited that he conceived their writings to have been originally immaculate, and therefore attributed to the copyists whatever errors he discovered. Scarce. OCLC shows only five complete sets: BL, BN France, Nat. Lib. Denmark, Brown, Univ. Nebraska; also one in the Nat. Lib. of Greece. Brunet V: 449.

In excellent condition. Trimmed as usual and mounted on washline background. Mounting sheet is watermarked laid paper. Image size: 14 7/16 x 20 5/8 inches. A charming seaside view by Samuel Ireland, the engraver and collector connected with the infamous Shakespeare forgeries. Ireland was a minor engraver and publisher who worked in London at the close of the eighteenth century. He was an avid art and manuscript collector, and many of the works that he engraved and published were after pieces found in his own collection. This romantic view is after a painting by DeVlieger, which was in Ireland's collection at the time. This image operates as both an example of the picturesque tradition in eighteenth century landscape prints, and as an advertisement and promotion of Ireland's celebrated collection. With this image Ireland presents himself as both a serious engraver and a respected collector. Unfortunately, today Ireland is better remembered for his involvement in the Shakespeare forgeries than for his evocative prints. Over a period of many years Ireland's son, William Henry, sold his father a series of forged manuscripts, which he claimed to be written in Shakespeare's hand. Ireland, who willingly trusted his son, added these forgeries to his collection and presented them in an exhibition to the literary community, who accepted them as genuine.

Molina, Juan Ignacio, Padre
La traducción Española de esta obra fundamental sobre Chile; First Spanish edition of a fundamental 18th century work on Chili by a Chilean. 1788-95. Madrid. Antonio de Sancha. Two volumes in 8vo (208 mm x 142 mm). xx + 418 + 1 [blank]; xvi + 382 + 1 ff. + 1 [blank] + 8 plates & maps. Contemporary calf, spine gilt with raised bands forming compartments, two morocco labels lettered in gilt, most attractive bindings in very good condition, only slightly rubbed. A fine copy, with only a few scattered foxing spots and mainly marginal worm holes to several leaves in second volume, occasionally touching headlines, heavier on places but overall clean and fresh. First Spanish edition -first printed in Italian during the author´s exile. According to Sabin, the Spanish translation is more complete than the original Italian, with several notes from the translator to the second part. The work deals with the country´s history, costumes, natural history and natives. Illustrated with three folding maps of Chili –two regional and the other including the Coast and handsomely decorated with a cartouche-, a frontispiece with the portrait of the author, three folding tables showing the state of Chili and one folding plan of the parks and fortresses in the border of Arauco. Molina (1740 – 1829) was a Chilean historian, naturalist and Jesuit Priest –entering the Order at 15. The fact that he was born in Chili makes him arguably one of the first Chilean historians born in Chili; after the 1767 expulsion of the Jesuits, he exiled to Bologna, from where his works where published; the late … [Click Below for Full Description]

LAGRANGE, J.L. -- H.C. SCHUMACHER'S COPY
Paris: La Veuve DeSaint, 1788. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary polished calf, spine with morocco label and gilt floriated compartmental designs, covers with gilt borders, gilt dentelles and marbled edges; a3 with small stain in paper, and other than some occasional soiling and browning, interior clean. From the library of H.C. Schumacher with his small ownership inscription dated 1810 on the verso of half-title. First edition of the author's masterpiece which laid the foundation of modern mechanics. "Perhaps the most beautiful mathematical treatise in existence; called by Hamilton, 'a kind of scientific poem.' It contains the discovery of the general equations of motion, the first epochal contribution to theoretical dynamics after Newton's Principia, next to which it has been ranked" (Evans). The book is divided into two parts: statics and dynamics, each of which addresses the subdivisions of solid bodies and fluids. Lagrange presents his discovery of the general equations of motions applicable to any system of bodies, having improved upon the calculus of variation set forth by the Bernoullis and Euler by substituting analytical treatment for their geometrical one. Lagrange (1763-1813) was born in Turin and studied under Beccaria. He is noted for his contributions to mathematics, celestial mechanics and astronomy. Ball considered him the foremost mathematician of his period. Schumacher (1780-1850), who studied astronomy under the direction of his good friend Gauss, established an observatory in Altona in 1821. He also founded the journal Astronomische Nachrichten in … [Click Below for Full Description]

The expedition was appointed by the Spanish Crown to determine the exact navigability of the strait and the advisability of the Spaniards continuing to use the passage in voyages to the Pacific, as well as to investigate the plant and animal life of the region, with a view toward colonization. The findings were negative and the Spaniards subsequently exclusively favoured overland trade routes from east coast ports of South America to the Pacific ports.

Edition originale établie par Dailland de la Touche. Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) se fit d'abord un nom comme un des plus grands ingénieurs et naturalistes suédois de son temps. Pris de vertiges et de visions à partir de 1736, afrmant être en communication avec les esprits et les anges, il nit par abandonner sa carrière scientique en 1747 pour se consacrer exclusivement à la mission qu'il s'assigna de révéler le sens spirituel de la Création où seul compte l'Amour divin, de faire connaître le monde céleste, et de proposer une évolution rationnelle de l'humanité vers l'état de pur esprit. Habile à diffuser ses idées à travers ses publications, il acquit bientôt une célébrité européenne. Sa condamnation comme hérétique en 1769 n'empêcha pas la création d'une véritable « église » autour de ses idées, ni même, plus largement, une inuence sur les premiers mouvements romantiques. Caillet, 10490 : « Sinon le plus complet, du moins le plus facile des exposés de la doctrine de Swedenborg.

PUTNAM, Israel] . HUMPHREYS, Col. David
Hudson and Goodwin, Hartford, Connecticut 1788 - 12mo. . . The scarce first edition of David Humphreys' celebrated and lasting biography of Revolutionary War General Israel Putnam. Humphreys himself performed heroically during the Revolution, and was much admired by George Washington. The book is still a useful source, containing a storehouse of firsthand anecdotes regarding Putnam's wartime exploits. Humphreys "had a natural talent or military science, and there are few more intelligent contemporary pictures of certain important campaigns, notably the battle of Long Island and the retreat from Harlem, than those contained in his Essay. In this he wrote as he fought, coolly and vigorously, and the book remains a testimonial to Putnam, to the effort and sacrifice of those stirring days, and to Humphreys own victorious good sense" -DAB.

In excellent condition. Trimmed as usual and mounted on washline background. Mounting sheet is watermarked laid paper. Image size: 14 5/8 x 20 1/4 inches.

Ireland was a minor engraver and publisher who worked in London at the close of the eighteenth century.

Nicely restored copy of very scarce work, one of the first on dietary studies. Stark (1741? -1770) obtained his medical degree in 1769, and immediately undertook a series of self-subject dietary experiments. The first, just bread and water, lasted for 31 days; he retained that regimen while slowing adding other foods one at a time, including olive oil, milk, roast goose, boiled beef, fat, figs, and veal. A modern dietician would immediately recognize the inherent imbalance of this diet; Stark learned the hard way when he recorded that after two months his gums were red and swollen and prone to bleeding. Stark had given himself scurvy which led to his early death at age twenty-nine. .

Edition originale et unique de cet ouvrage d’inspiration physiocratique. Après avoir servi dans les armées du roi et obtenu la concession de terres agricoles dans l'Isle de France (île Maurice), Heurtault de Lamerville s'intéressa aux problèmes financiers que rencontrait la France. Il formule, dans cet ouvrage, des solutions originales à travers un plan de restructuration du système financier et fiscal et la libération des dettes de l’Etat. Il critique les impôts directs et indirects et propose, en remplacement, un impôt territorial, une taille réelle et une "subvention générale". Le dispositif est fondé sur l’instauration d’Assemblées provinciales qui assureraient la perception et la répartition de l’impôt. Mirabeau, Turgot, Le Trosne, Condorcet auront les mêmes objectifs concernant les Assemblées provinciales. (Einaudi, 3185. Goldsmiths, 13642. INED, 2556. Kress, B.1437.

Wrexham: reprinted by R. Marsh, 1788. Roger Ascham (1515-1568) was an English scholar and noted wordsmith, who acted as Princess Elizabeth's Greek and Latin tutor between 1544-50. He was introduced to archery by Sir Humphrey Wingfield, a barrister, in about 1533, and went onto write his earliest work, Toxophilus ("Lover of the Bow"), in 1545, which he dedicated to Henry VIII. It is the first book on archery in the English language. Its aim was twofold; first, to promote shooting with the long bow as a manly pastime and an aid to national defence, and second, to raise the standard of composition of the English Language. In short, he wished to extol the virtues of the bow by using a highbrow form of language. 12mo. xxi + 230pp. + [2]. Includes Table of Contents at the rear. Rebound in contemporary half morocco over sand-grained boards. sl rubbing to head and tail of the spine and corners. Title label affixed to spine between raised bands. A very good copy of the first book on archery in the English language.

RUMSEY, James (1743?-1792)
Philadelphia: printed by Joseph James, 1788. Small octavo. (8 3/4 x 5 3/8 inches). [1-]26 pp. Contemporary paper wrappers, early manuscript title on upper wrapper, uncut (wrappers with repaired tears) Provenance: W.H.H. Newman (Buffalo, New York, bookplate and signature on title) Second edition, second issue of this important early pamphlet on steam navigation by one of the two American steam pioneers. James Rumsey's pamphlet was first published under a slightly different title ( A plan wherein the power of steam is fully shewn... ) in 1788. It was then reprinted with this title, in two different issues (the first with the word 'chep' on the title, the second with the word correctly spelled, as here). Rumsey states in the "Advertisement" on the verso of the title that this pamphlet is reprinted from "a pamphlet published in Virginia, to prove the authors prior right of applying steam, to propel boats &c. as well as to establish the principles on which he has done it, a few copies were then thought sufficient for that purpose, but as Mr. Fitch intends to answer the pamphlet, it is therefore necessary to re-publish as much of it as respects Mr. Fitch, which is done with no other variation, from the original, than to correct a few of the omissions and mistakes that were introduced into the first publication". Rumsey and John Fitch entered into a controversy over whose steam-powered boat had priority. Fitch was the first to publicize his invention and obtained a 14-year privilege for the manufacture of steam vessels, giving him a virtual monopoly on its producti … [Click Below for Full Description]
