         A TREATISE CONCERNING RELIGIOUS AFFECTIONS

      Boston: Printed for S. Kneeland and T. Green, 1746. FIRST EDITION. This pro-revivalist treatise by prominent Congregational minister Jonathan Edwards was a defense of the role of emotion in religious conversion and a rebuttal of Charles Chauncy's denunciation of religious fervor he saw as histrionic. Based on his own religious experience, Edwards (1703-58) believed the heart was at least as important as the head in finding one's way to God, and he responds here to Chauncy's contempt for over-inflamed religious "passion." According to ANB, "Treatise" makes the point that "affections were different from passion, which overpowered the rational exercises of the mind." Like Chauncy, Edwards was disturbed by the fainting spells and other excessive demonstrations of conversion that took place at revivals, but he still saw conversion as a very emotional experience. Copies of this work are not especially rare, but our volume has fared far better than most over the years.. 198 x 136 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 3/8"). 1 p.l. (title), vi, 343, [9] pp. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary sheep, flat spine, absence of pastedowns displaying the stitching and the boards printed with legal rulings from ca. 1755 (restorations to joints and corners).Inside front board with a couple of later ownership notations; rear flyleaf with ink notations of the births of Elisebeth (1764) and Nathan (1761) Haskell. Evans 5767. Leather a little crackled, half a dozen small abrasions to boards, but the binding entirely sound. Title page a little soiled, final leaf with fore-edge margin replaced, penultimate leaf with horizontal tear across text neatly repaired with minimal effect on legibility, minor foxing to margins throughout, more pronounced on three gatherings, isolated small stains, but a very good copy, the text generally clean and fresh, with nothing approaching a major defect.This pro-revivalist treatise by prominent Congregational minister Jonathan Edwards was a defense of the role of emotion in religious conversion and a rebuttal of Charles Chauncy's denunciation of religious fervor he saw as histrionic.

         Dissertations sur les apparitions des anges, des démons et des esprits et sur les revenans et vampires de Hongrie, de Bohême, de Moravie & de Silésie.

      Paris, chez de Bure l'aîné, 1746, in 12, de XXXVI-500 pp., et 2 ff. de catalogue, pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné, qq. rares rousseurs sinon bon exemplaire. Edition originale rare de ce célèbre ouvrage, pour le moins curieux : Visions, apparitions, démons, spectres, sorcières, revenants etc... Le terme de vampire apparaît ici pour la première fois, et selon Dom Calmet « Les revenants de Hongrie, les vampires, sont des hommes morts depuis un temps considérable, quelquefois plus, quelquefois moins long, qui sortent de leurs tombeaux et viennent inquiéter les vivants, leur sucer le sang, leurs apparaissent, font le tintamarre à leur porte et enfin leur causent la mort» (sic). Rappelons en effet que l'Europe centrale connut au 18e siècle une épidémie de vampirisme, et plus particulièrement dans les années 1730 -1735. Voltaire a dit de ce traité, dans son dictionnaire philosophique "Calmet enfin devint leur historiographe, et traita les vampires comme il avait traité l'ancien et le nouveau Testament, en rapportant fidèlement tout ce qui avait été dit avant lui." A la fin du traité on trouve la réimpression de la "Dissertation sur ce qu'on doit penser de l'apparition des esprits, à l'occasion de l'aventure arrivée à Saint-Maur, P.1707" [par Poupart, chanoine]. ¶ Caillet n°1964 - Coumont C7.1 - Dorbon 610 - Cornell Univ. Witchcraft cat. 104 - Yve-Plessis sorcellerie 519.

         Dissertations sur les apparitions des anges, des démons & des esprits. Et sur les revenans et vampires. De Hongrie, de Bohème, de Moravie & de Silésie

      De Bure l'Ainé, Paris 1746 - Pleine basane marbré de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs portant la pièce de titre, tranches rouges. Un volume in-12 (165 x 94 mm), xxxvi-500-(4 : catalogue) pages Coins émoussés, accrocs aux coiffes Édition originale de ce curieux traité sur les vampires et les démons. Dans la première partie, Calmet traite des démons, des fantômes, des lémures, des apparitions, des incubes et succubes, des sorcières, du sabbat. Mais c'est la deuxième partie qui traite des revenants et surtout des vampires qui fit polémique à l'époque. En effet les phénomènes de vampirisme observés dans l'Europe de l'Est n'étaient pas connus en France. Convaincu par le nombre de témoignages concordant, Calmet définit le vampire comme un mort ressorti de sa tombe pour sucer le sang des vivants. Il prône alors comme remède, de déterrer le corps du vampire, de séparer sa tête de son corps et de planter un pieu dans la poitrine ou alors de brûler le corps. A la fin, avec une page de titre séparée et pagination continue se trouve la "Dissertation sur ce qu'on doit penser de l'apparition des esprits, à l'occasion de l'avanture arrivée à St-Maur. Paris. 1707".

First edition of this curious treatise on vampires and demons. In the first part, Calmet wrote about demons, ghosts, lemurs, apparitions, incubi and succubi, witches, Sabbath . But this is the second part dealing with vampires that made controversial. Indeed the observed phenomena of vampirism in Eastern Europe were not known in France. Convinced by the number of concordant testimonies, Calmet defined the vampire as a dead man emerged from his grave to suck the blood of the living. He then advocated as a remedy, to take the body of the vampire, to separate his head from his body and drive a stake through the chest or to burn the body. At the end, with a separate title page and continuous pagination is the "Dissertation sur ce qu'on doit penser de l'aaparition des esprits, à l'occasion de l'avanture arrivée à St-Maur. Paris. 1707".

Édition originale de cet ouvrage important, étudiant les variations des différentes monnaies européennes entre 1202 et 1746. Très intéressant en ce qui concerne l'histoire monétaire au Moyen Age et au XVI ème siècle, cet ouvrage a été une des lectures économiques de François Quesnay (J.-C. Perrot, Une histoire intellectuelle de l'économie politique, pp. 218-220) : Dupré de Saint-Maur est l'un des premiers économistes qui ait su amorcer d'autres formes de calculs déduits d'observations concrètes. "En 1746, [il] enquête dans le Vexin et la Brie pour dégager la notion de rendement à la surface, il résout le problème des conversions de mesure, puis il aborde celui des fermages, il établit des équivalences entre les baux en nature et en argent pour les années 1740-1745, d'après plusieurs fonds situés à Marly et Fontenay-Mareuil près de Gonesse ; enfin sa description de deux fermes solognotes (600 et 247 arpents labourables) retient des données qui seront essentielles en physiocratie : le montant des fermages, celui des impôts, les avances en bestiaux, et l'idée de rapports mesurables entre les diverses taxes fiscales, comme entre l'impôt et le produit des terres".

         Carta de hum cidadam de Genova a hum seu correspondente em Londres. [text begins:] Entre os fataés eventos desta presente guerra .

      N.p., n.pr., 1746?. - 4°, disbound. Caption title and four-line criblé initial on p. 1. In good to very good condition. 12 pp. *** First Edition in Portuguese, signed in print at the end 15 December 1746. The anonymous author describes the oppression inflicted by the Austrians after they captured Genoa in September 1746, including sacking the city and imposing fines so heavy that the city had to hand over money from the Bank of St. George, the city's leading financial institution. Trade was slowing to a trickle and travel was forbidden. The Austrian governor, Antoniotto Botta d'Adorno, was particularly harsh, probably because his family had been expelled from Genoa some years earlier.On 5 December 1746, Austrian soldiers moving a mortar down the street saw it sink into a huge hole, and when their leader tried to beat the Genoese bystanders into helping drag it out, the Genoese pelted the soldiers with rocks. In short order the Genoese commandeered weapons from the armory and fought a series of other skirmishes, driving the Austrians out of the city by 10 December (pp. 6-10). By the author's estimate, only 50 Genoese were killed or wounded; for the Austrians, he says, casualties topped 4,000. In 1745, Genoa had reluctantly entered the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748) on the side of France and Spain. The next year the city was besieged by Austrians, British, and Genoa's mortal enemies, the Sardinians. Abandoned by its allies, Genoa surrendered to the Austrians in September 1746, but December 1746 saw the great popular uprising described here. One of the main goals of the Austrians during the 1747 campaign in Italy was to recapture Genoa, which they failed to do.The War of the Austrian Succession began in 1740, with the death of Emperor Charles VI. It included several small conflicts: the War of Jenkins' Ear (which began in 1739), King George's War in North America (1744-1748), and two Silesian wars, finally ending in 1748 with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, which mostly returned territories to the status quo ante.*** Coimbra, Miscelâneas 902.

         Pensées philosophiques et pensées chrétiennes, mises en parallèle ou en opposition

      1746 - A La Haye et à Rouen, aux dépens de la compagnie, 1746 et 1747. In-12, reliure plein veau, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre rouge, filet à froid d'encadrement sur les plats, filet doré sur les coupes, tranches rouges, charnières usées, coins émoussés. Faux-titre, premier titre ("Pensées Philosophiques"), deuxième titre ("Pensées chrétiennes."), 5 pages d'Avis au lecteur, 241 pages, 20 pages non chiffrées de tables (erreur de disposition concernant deux feuillets de table ; l'ensemble des tables est cependant bien complet). Conformément à Barbier, il est généralement admis que l'auteur de cette réfutation des pensées philosophiques fut Georges Polier de Bottens. Comme ce dernier veut mettre ses deux textes ("Pensées chrétiennes." et "Réflexions sur les pensées philosophiques") en parallèle et que les commentaires sont nettement plus diffus que le texte des "Pensées" de Diderot, les pages qu'occupe ce dernier ouvrage comportent de nombreuses lacunes (p.26, 42, etc.), (Adams, pd16, p.286). Par "lacunes", Adams entend des espaces "blancs" conséquents. Bon exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mufle de veau. Antirrhinum majus. L. [From: Fleurs dessinées d'après nature, Recueil utile aux amateurs, aux jeunes artistes, aux élèves des écoles centrales et aux dessinateurs des manufactures].[Paris, 1799-1801]. Stipple engraving on unwatermarked wove paper (54.5 x 36.5 cm), printed in colour à la poupée and finished by hand, of a Antirrhinum majus showing a branched stem with flowers in various stages, signed "P.F. Le Grand sculp." In passepartout.

      - Van Boven & Segal, Gerard & Cornelis van Spaendonck, pp. 178-184, no. 22a; for the series: Blunt, pp. 175-176; DHunt 673 note; cf. An Oak Spring flora 58, 92 etc. Magnificent illustration of a Antirrhinum majus, commonly known as snapdragon, printed in colour and delicately finished by hand. This colourful flowering plant is native to the Mediterranean region and the Arabian Peninsula. It is originally part of a series of flower prints by Gerard van Spaendonck, the only engraved work published during his lifetime, "entitled Fleurs dessinées d'après Nature, which contains twenty-four magnificent drawings, brilliantly interpreted in stipple by P.F. Le Grand and other engravers. These are probably the finest engravings of flowers ever made" (Blunt) and "they are among the most breath-taking series of plates in the [Hunt] library" (Hunt). The series was originally published in 6 parts with 4 plates and available printed in black, printed in colour, or (as in the present case) printed in colour and finished by hand.Gerard van Spaendonck (1746-1822) was a proponent of the Dutch school of floral painting. He singlehandedly transformed the genre of flower painting in France, where he managed to unite the realism of the Dutch school with the suave elegance of the French school. In 1780 he became Professeur de Peinture de Fleurs at the Jardin des Plantes. Among his many pupils was Pierre Joseph Redouté.A few minor spots, some faint thumbing and a couple minor restorations to the lower margin, otherwise in very good condition.
