POESIES DE MONSIEUR DE HALLER TRADUITES DE L'ALLEMAND
Zurich: Chez Heidegger & Compagnie, 1752. [4],226,[2]pp. Small octavo. Original mottled calf, rebacked, with most of the original gilt backstrip laid down, marbled endleaves. Interesting inscription on front endsheet and occasional marginal annotations, foretips worn, otherwise a very good copy. First edition of this collection of translations of selections by the Swiss physiologist and poet, unsigned, but attributed to Vincenz Bernhard von Tscharner. This copy bears an inscription on the front endsheet in a contemporary hand (the recipient's): "The Gift of Prince Lewis of Wirtemberg to J. [?] Duncan in July 1756 Sent with an obliging Note from Toulon to Marseilles ...." The author of the inscription continues further to comment on omissions in the translations, at least two of which he has noted in the text.
