         Early Royal Navy Document; Appointment of Cornelius Sheene as the Master-Cook to HMS "New Dunkirk," Granting Him a Post on a Notable Ship-of-the-Line.

      Woolwich, England, 5 December 1748 - Royal Navy appointment of Cornelius Sheene as the Master-Cook to HMS "New Dunkirk," granting him a post on a notable ship-of-the-line that was yet to be built, as well as a servant to assist him, bearing the signatures of four members of the original 'Office of the Admiralty and Marine Affairs' which had been established in 1705. Original printed document, 1 page, completed in manuscript. Single leaf laid paper, watermarked with the Shield of the Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom including the Anglo-Saxon maxim "Honi soit qui mal y pense on the garter which surrounds the shield." Leaf measures approximately 19 x 30 cm. Very slight age-toning and creasing, otherwise in very good condition, beautifully preserved, a most uncommon naval document. What is most fascinating and unusual about this document, is that the Admiralty did not often appoint cooks. Formal appointments were generally reserved for Commanders, Captains, certainly for a Commander-in-Chief of a foreign station, and for other high-ranking posts. Cornelius Sheene must have been exceptionally skilled at his trade, preparing meals at sea and providing sustenance to large crews, also contending with the unique challenges of foreign goods, unforeseeable shortages, and unique diseases of a Pacific voyage. Not only was he granted an official appointment, he was to be provided with a servant to assist him. In addition, he was being assured employment on a ship that was not yet built. The document is signed in the original by Royal Navy Captain Richard Haddock (1673-1751) who was Comptroller of the Navy from 1734-1749; Robert Osborn, Esq., Commissioner of the Navy holding the post of Clerk of the Acts from 1746-1747, possibly retaining the same post the following year when he signed the above; and two others. Apart from the two appointments revealed in the present document, and the appointment revealed in the document of the British Archives, little else is known about him.

      Geneve, Barrillot (sic!) & Fils, [1748]. 4to. Two lovely contemporary uniform full calf bindings with richly gilt spines, gilt title- and tome-labels and single gilt line-borders to boards. Edges of boards blindtooled. Very neatly restored at hinges and corners, barely noticeable. 19th century book-plate ("FAMA") to inside if front boards. Old handwritten notes in ink to front free end-papers. Some leaves evenly browned, as usual. Vol. I with contemporary owner's inscription "B. Heiman/ 1756/ S. st." to verso of title-page. Light inkspotting to half-title and occasional light brownspotting. Vol. II with very small owner's name to verso of front free end-paper: "Mr. Gustavo Horta" and with a worm tract. The worm tract is mostly very small and only in the very top corner of the upper blank margin or as a tiny hole in the inner blank margin towards the hinge. From pp. 493 to 544, the worm tract is larger, but still situated in the blank margin (outer) and far from affecting text at any point. With both half-titles, preface (vol. 1), and tables of contents. No errata at the end of volume one, and no folded map. Woodcut printer's devices to title-pages. (8), XXIV, 522; (4), XVI, 564 pp. ¶ The very rare first edition, first issue of Montesquieu's seminal main work, "[i]n many ways one of the most remarkable works of the eighteenth century" (PMM 197), in which the author presents his theory of constitutional monarchy, advocating constitutionalism and the separation of powers, and explains human laws and social institutions. The very first printing, i.e. the first edition, first issue, of the present work is of the utmost scarcity. Numerous editions and issues of the work were printed in the months following the first appearance. The present copy has the first issue pointers (the two "r"s in "Barrillot" on the title-page, no errata). It does not have a folding map, as mentioned by Brunet, but whether this is actually supposed to be present or not in the first printing, has not been established - some bibliographers say that it should not be there.Montesquieu began writing this his magnum opus in 1743, by the end of which year he had almost finished the first draft of it. The same year he began the first of two great revisions of it, which he finished in 1746. In 1747 he finished his second revision, adding several new chapters, and chose J. Barrillot from Geneva to publish the work, which finally appeared for the first time in November 1748, in two quarto volumes, with no mention of author or year. Numerous editions and issues appeared the following months and years, and by 1751 22 editions of the work had appeared. Already in 1750 the work was published in English, the English editions amounting to 10 by 1773, and by 1801 the work had appeared in both German (1789), Dutch, Danish, Polish, Italian, and Russian (1801). The work exercised the greatest of influence, both negative and positive, and numerous anti-Montesquieu-pamphlets and articles appeared during the last half of the 18th century. Because of the work, Montesquieu was also attacked by the Sorbonne, as well as in the general assembly of the French clergy, and in Rome. In 1751 the work was placed on the Index.As the number of editions, translations etc. bears witness to, the work provided the greatest of impact on 18th century political thought as well as actual politics and law. In fact, few other works can be claimed to possess the same power of influence as this one, directly affecting the likes of Tocqueville and Catherine the Great. Although Montesquieu had to defend himself against great thinkers like Voltaire, "his theories underlay the thinking which led up to the American and French revolutions, and the United States Constitution in particular is a lasting tribute to the principles he advocated." (PMM 197). "Montesquieu was one of the great political philosophers of the Enlightenment. Insatiably curious and mordantly funny, he constructed a naturalistic account of the various forms of government, and of the causes that made them what they were and that advanced or constrained their development. He used this account to explain how governments might be preserved from corruption. He saw despotism, in particular, as a standing danger for any government not already despotic, and argued that it could best be prevented by a system in which different bodies exercised legislative, executive, and judicial power, and in which all those bodies were bound by the rule of law. This theory of the separation of powers had an enormous impact on liberal political theory, and on the framers of the constitution of the United States of America." (SEP).Kress: 4920; Tchemerzine: VIII, 459; PMM 197.

(cgc) T.P.L. 207. Lane 1161. Sabin 22312. Hill p94. Ellis served as hydrographer, surveyor & mineralogist on the expedition under Capt. William Moor sent to discover the Northwest passage in 1746. The expedition proved decisively that no such passage from Hudson's Bay existed & contributed to a lapse of British interest in the subject until 1816. Ellis' work provided interesting & valuable information about the customs of the then relatively unknown Esquimaux, observations on the tides, and the `vagaries of the compass'. Plates depict natural history subjects, Eskimo costume & customs, and views. "Ellis went as proprietors' agent and scientific specialist with a two ship expedition commissioned to find the Northwest Passage, a hundred years after James' conclusion that such a search was pointless. Ellis's descriptions aroused James Isham to a hostile response, not published until much later (1949)". Waterston p9. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Decorative cartouche with coat of arms.; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

         Catalogue des livres inprimés [sic] aux dépens de l'Académie impériale des sciences de St. Pétersbourg. Et qui se vendent en sa librairie [with] Traite de l'origine demonstration, contruction & usage du Quadrant Analematique

      A catalogue of books for sale from the Russian Imperial Academy of Sciences. We have been able to trace only one other copy, at the Academy of Sciences Library in St Petersburg. Around 80 books are listed, published 1725-48 (the Press had struggled with sales initially and a stockpile soon built up). But there is something for every reader, and every pocket: science, history, law, education, topography, heraldry, biography (funeral orations for Peter the Great's military élite sit next to a Russian translation of Fontenelle), with prices ranging from 10 kopeks (a sermon by the Archbishop of Novgorod) to 20 roubles (ten volumes of the Academy's Commentarii scientiarum; two more are in the press, according to the advertisements on the final page). Also available is a selection of Romanov portraits and silhouettes, and a number of maps, both geographical and military. The Imperial Academy of Sciences founded its press in 1727. Within a decade it was to become the most important secular publishing house in Russia. The Press set up a bookshop (one of the earliest in the capital, and the sole outlet for foreign-language publications) in 1728 and initially ran advertisements in, and as supplements to, the newspaper St Peterburgskie vedomosti. These were in Russian, but in the 1730s lists of books for sale also began to appear in German and French. The present example comes from an exciting time for the Press. Plans were afoot to open a second shop, in Moscow (this took place the following March), and to extend bookselling activities into provincial Russia. And even beyond: one wonders when the Catalogue found its way into the Macclesfield Library. There are markings here next to a number of books which the Earl owned - did he order direct from St Petersburg? - by Bayer, Euler, Krafft, and nearly all the maps. All Academy of Sciences bookshop catalogues, in whatever language, are extremely rare. A survey of COPAC, OCLC and KVK finds only one earlier example, a 1739 German catalogue, at the Franckesche Stiftungen in Halle. Provenance: from the Macclesfield library with stamp on initial two leaves. Svodnyi katalog 3197 (listing only 12 pages). On the background, see Gary Marker, Publishing, Printing, and the Origins of Intellectual Life in Russiam 1700-1800 (Princeton UP, 1985), especially chapters 2 and 6.

      Leiden: Samuel et Joannes Luchtmans . 1748 - 4°, [14], CLXXII, 603 pp., [14], contemporary vellum binding with gilt embossed coat of arms on the covers and manuscript title on the back (Very Good, paper with light foxing, endpapers with small tears and tiny loss of paper, old bookmark mounted on the inner side of the cover, old manuscript annotations on end papers and in the margin of title page, cover slightly dusty). A 1748 edition of the first accurate book of Arabic grammar by orientalist Thomas van Erpe includes the first Latin translation of the 9th century Arabic anthology the Hamasah by Abu Tammam. - Thomas van Erpe, with a Latin name Thomas Erpenius (1584 – 1624), was a Dutch Orientalist, who founded a printing press with Hebrew, Arabic, Syrian, Ethiopian, and Turkish type in Leiden, South Holland. The first edition of van Erpe’s Arabic grammar was published in 1613. After a great success of the book, further enlarged editions were published, such as Rudimenta linguae Arabicae (1620), Grammatica Ebraea generalis (1621) and after van Erpe’s premature death Grammatica Chaldaica et Syria (1628). Our edition here includes reprinted text on grammar from the 1656 edition, but includes for the first time a Latin translation of a famous anthology of Arabic poetry the Hamasah (Hamasa) by Abu Tammam (788–845). Abu Tammam was born in Syria to Christian parents, but converted to Muslim. His work the Hamasah (Arabic:?? "exhortation") known as one of the greatest anthologies of Arabic literature ever written. The Hamsah text was edited and translated by Albert Schultens (1686 –1750), an orientalist, specialist in Hebre wand Arabic, professor at the Univerity of Leiden and the chief teacher of the Arabic language in the whole of the Europe.

         The Holland Merchant's Companion: or, Remarks on the Trade, Customs and Exchange of Holland with England.

      Rotterdam: Printed by D. v. Eyk, for the author,, 1748. Containing, I. Some Remarks on Exchange in general; with Directions for the Accepting and Protesting a Bill of Exchange. II. Remarks, with Examples, and useful Tables, of the Exchange between England and Holland. III. A Description of the Bank at Amsterdam; shewing what the Agio is; with a Table for finding the same. IV. Remarks on the Corn Trade; shewing the Customs Duties and Charges on Corn in Rotterdam; with a useful Table for the ready Casting up a Corn Account. V. A List of the Customs which are paid in Holland. Taken out of the Dutch Book of Rates. Octavo, pp. 84. Contemporary pink tawed pigskin and drab boards. Contemporary mathematical calculations to front free endpapers, last leaf annotated "This Book was made by Mr Tho.s Browne of the Firm Thomas Browne & Son, Ano 1748." Manuscript table of calculations handwritten on stiff card and dated 1705 loosely inserted. Spine rubbed and faded, boards worn and soiled; leaves ink splashed and soiled in places, particularly O1-2, The Corn-Table, which shows considerable sign of use, inner lower corner of leaf O2 torn away, text unaffected, several leaves somewhat dogeared; a good copy of a scarce work. First Rotterdam edition, originally published in Norwich in 1715, printed by H. Collins for the author, (pp. [4], 72). A useful manual for merchants trading between Holland and England, written by Thomas Browne, who clearly appears to have been actively involved in commerce between the two countries. "Exchange of money is the most usefull part of the art of merchandizing and traffick; being not only necessary for the knowledge of merchants, but also for such as negotiate the publick affairs of princes and set at the helm of government in a common-wealth."
