         Amelia.

      London: Printed for A. Millar. 1752 - FIRST EDITION, second state. 4 volumes. 12mo, 161 x 97 mms., pp. [vi] vii - xii, 285 [286 blank]; [ii] iii - viii, 262 [263 adverts, 264 blank]; [ii] iii - ix blank], 323 [324 blank]; [ii] iii - vii [viii blank], 296, with the faulty text "the at Folly" changed to "at the Folly" in volume 3, page 191. contemporary calf, recent reback in later calf, red morocco label, new end-papers; some marginal worming in volume 1, several leaves throughout both volumes closely shaved without loss, but a reasonably good set of Fielding's last novel. Although the date on the title-page is 1752, the novel was published on 19 December 1751. Many of the comments focused on the fate of Amelia's "lovely Nose," which was "beat all to pieces," when a chariot overturned. Broken, ruined, or missing noses and their iconographic portrayal often associated the bearer or the nose, or the not-nose, with venereal disease. Fielding's narrative makes no mention of a surgical repair to the those. The author and botanist John Hill (1714 - 1775) attacked Amelia in the London Daily Advertiser on 8 January 1752 where he claimed that the book's title character "could charm the World without the Help of a Nose." Rothschild, 853. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Considerations on several proposals, lately made, for the better maintenance of the poor. with an appendix, containing heads of two Bills for the better government, maintenance, and employment of the poor, within the City and Liberty of Westminster; and in the several counties of England. The second edition.

      London C. Davis and M. Cooper 1752 - 4to., vi + 33 + (1)pp., well bound in early 20th century half roan over marbled boards. A fine, crisp, copy. Charles Gray (1696-1782), the Colchester lawyer, politician, and antiquary, here published substantial criticisms to the schemes on the poor laws of Hay and Fielding which Gray thought involved far too great a charge on the County rate. He preferred to be able to rely on voluntary contributions together with the complete disestablishment of the parish and the substitution of areas of administration.

         CALLIGRAPHY - HUNTSMAN’S CERTIFICATE: DESS DURCHLEUCHTIGEN FÜRSTEN UND HERRN HERRN CARL HERZOGEN ZU WÜRTEMBERG U: TECK.

      Ink and gouache on parchment, with two wax seals in the lower part (Very Good, soft folds, small smeared sports, tiny holes in parchment) 35,5 x 51,5 cm (14 x 20.3 inches). - Cleebronn, Germany, 1752. A magnificent huntsman’s certificate, with unique elaborate calligraphy in the title was issued in 1752 in Baden Württemberg, Germany, by an office of Charles Eugene, Duke of Württemberg. This highly decorative document on parchment, with an elaborate calligraphic ornament in the upper part, was made by the hunting administration of Charles Eugene (Carl Eugen), Duke of Württemberg (1728-1793), as a hunting permit for Johann Friedrich Hesselt from the Württemberg region of Zabergäu. The permit was signed and sealed at the bottom by a court head of the hunting office August Ernst von Rieben and Georg Adam Schoch. The images in the upper part, made by a skilful calligraphic hand, showcase hunting scenes with hunters on horses on deer. A deer was a heraldic animal of the house of Württemberg and from 15th century on also the most desirable animal in regional hunting. Deer’s parts were used as trophies and for medical purposes.

         Antique Print-JAPAN-JAPON-JAPANESE EMPIRE-Bellin-c. 1752

      - Antique print, titled: 'Carte de L'Empire de Japon ( ).' - Map of the Empire of Japan. Centered on the Bay of Osaka, this map covers from Hirado (here identified as I. Firando) and Nagasaki to Akita (Aquita), to include most of Tokugawa (Edo) Era Japan. The island of Hokkaido is not included in this map. Various towns, harbors, bays, provinces, mountains and daimyo are noted, although many are speculative. Engraving / etching on hand laid (verge) paper. Made by 'Jacques-Nicolas Bellin' after an anonymous artist. Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703 - 1772) was one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century. With a career spanning some 50 years, Bellin is best understood as geographe de cabinet and transitional mapmaker spanning the gap between 18th and early 19th century cartographic styles. His long career as Hydrographer and Ingénieur Hydrographe at the French Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine resulted in hundreds of high quality nautical charts of practically everywhere in the world. A true child of the Enlightenment Era, Bellin's work focuses on function and accuracy tending in the process to be less decorative than the earlier 17th and 18th century cartographic work. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Bellin was always careful to cite his references and his scholarly corpus consists of over 1400 articles on geography prepared for Diderot's Encyclopedie. Bellin, despite his extraordinary success, may not have enjoyed his work, which is described as "long, unpleasant, and hard." In addition to numerous maps and charts published during his lifetime, many of Bellin's maps were updated (or not) and published posthumously. He was succeeded as Ingénieur Hydrographe by his student, also a prolific and influential cartographer, Rigobert Bonne. Condition: Very good, given age. Irregular bottom edge as issued. Original folds as issued. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. The overall size is ca. 15.4 x 10.6 inch. The image size is ca. 12.2 x 8.8 inch. The overall size is ca. 39 x 27 cm. The image size is ca. 31 x 22.3 cm.

         Poems,

      [1752?] 1752 - on various Subjects and Occasions. First Edition 8vo., [4], 360 pp. Slight staining around the edges of the title-page and final leaf caused by the turn-ins, dark ink stain in the blank fore-margin of B3, single crease across the centre of the first few quires probably due to the sheets being too tightly sewn. Contemporary sheep, spine ruled in gilt with a single small tool in each panel (spine label missing, covers a little scuffed and stained, edges and corners bumped and rubbed, headcaps a little ragged single small hole in the second band on the spine). Edinburgh, for Ch. Alexander, and are sold at his House in Geddes's Close; where Subscribers may call for their Copies, Foxon p.681. The title-page appears to be a cancel. The title-page is undated but the book is usually thought to have been published between 1751 and 1752. A copy at the British Library has a manuscript date of 1752 on the title-page (according to Foxon this copy is now missing). Alexander Robertson (c.1670-1749) was the thirteenth holder of the barony of Struan and chief of clan Robertson. Robertson took part in a number of Jacobite rebellions but was only punished lightly. Known for his reckless, savage and misogynistic ways, he is said to have composed many of his poems whilst drunk. His portrait, now in the National Gallery of Scotland, shows him holding a glass of wine aloft. The book is common institutionally but according to ABPC the last (and only) copy of this book to appear at auction was at Lawrence's, Feb 15, 1979 (lot 379). 1. W Burgh, small neat signature on the title-page. 2. Henry Fanshawe Davies (1837-1914) of Elmley Castle, Worcestershire; Late 19th-century engraved armorial bookplate on the front pastedown. 3. James. O. Edwards, book collector, small modern book label on the front pastedown. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

His publisher felt confident that Amelia would be as successful as Tom Jones, and, after an initial printing of 5,000 copies in December 1751 (the largest recorded for any 18th-century novel), ordered a second impression (published January 1752) before the first sold out. Unfortunately, only the first day was a success, and after that sales dropped off drastically. Cross III, p. 321; Rothschild 853.

         Die Königl. Preußische und Chur-Brandenb. Hof-Wehe-Mutter, Das ist: Ein höchst nöthiger Unterricht von schweren u. unrecht-stehenden Gebuhrten, ... mit einem Anhange heilsamer Artzney-Mittel

      Berlin, C.F. Voss, 1752, 4, (40), 348, (12) pp., gestochenes Porträt, 43 (1 gefalt.) Kupfertafeln, Halbledereinband d.Zt. Rücken erneuert, altes Titelschild feines Exemplar. KLASSIKER DER GEBURTSHILFE. MOST CELEBRATED MIDWIFE OF THE 17th CENTURYJustine Siegemundin (1651-1705) vollst. Titel: Die Königl. Preußische und Chur-Brandenb. Hof-Wehe-Mutter, Das ist: Ein höchst nöthiger Unterricht von schweren und unrecht-stehenden Gebuhrten, In einem Gespräch vorgestellet, Wie nehmlich, durch Göttlichen Beystand, eine wohlunterrichtete Wehe-Mutter mit Verstand und geschickter Hand dergleichen verhüten, oder wanns Noth ist, das Kind wenden könne Durch vieler Jahre Übung selbst erfahren und wahr befunden: Nun aber Gott zu Ehren und dem Nechsten zu Nutz, Auf gnädigst - und inständiges Verlangen Duchlauchtigst und vieler hohen Standes Personen verbessert, mit einem Anhange heilsamer Artzney-Mittel, und mit denen dißfalls erregten Controvers-Schrifften vermehret, Nebst doppelter Vorrede, Kupffern und nöthigem Register zum Druck befördert von Justinen Siegemundin, gebohrner Diettrichin, von Ronnstock aus Schlesien, im Jaurischen Fürstenthum gelegen.Seltene Ausgabe des berühmten Lehrbuches der Siegemundin in einem vollständigen Exemplar. Für ein sonst im Gebrauch zerschlissenes Werk in einem bemerkenswert guten Erhaltungszustand. Die gefaltete Tafel mit fachmännisch ergänzter Fehlstelle durch Faksimile, das oft fehlende Portrait ergänzt aus einem anderen Exemplar.Erweiterte Edition in der die "Artzney-Mittel" für die Kinder-Mütter in einer Abteilung mit eigenem Titelblatt zusammengetragen sind (Berlin, bey Johann Andreas Rüdigern, 1741). Zum Schluss sind die Streitschriften mit dem Leipziger Prof. Petermann abgedruckt. Eines der einflußreichsten Hebammenbücher überhaupt, ein in Text und Abbildungen ganz originales Werk, das nicht auf Vorbildern wie Roesslin und Rueff fußt. Ein Lehrbuch, das für fast ein Jahrhundert ein Thesaurus und Berater war, aus dem Hebammen und Ärzte schöpften. Das Werk ist in Gesprächsform zwischen zwei "friedliebenden Wehemüttern" abgefaßt. Die großformatigen, klaren Abbildungen zeigen diverse Fehllagen, zu deren Behebung die Siegemundin verdienstvolle Neuerungen einführte. Der "doppelte Handgriff" bei der Wendung von Querlagen, sowie die Punktierung der Fruchtblase zur Stillung der Blutung der Placenta praevia verdanken ihre Einführung unserer Autorin. Die Siegemundin hat nur ihre Erfahrung zu Rate gezogen und die Natur zur Lehrmeisterin gemacht. - Ein "Rarissima" der älteren deutschen medizinischen Literatur und eine Zierde jeder gynäkologischen Bibliothek.Rare edition of this classic in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Justine Siegemundin was the most celebrated German midwife of the 17th century. In 1672 she obtained a copy of De Graff's book of generation, which started her on her career as a really scientific midwife. Basically self-taught she developed her skills to the degree that she was made Court Midwife by Frederic III and the royal family of Prussia. The book, a result of her own experience, is of major interest and importance for its original obstetrical illustrations not copied from Roesslin or Rueff. The fact that the work was written in German instead of Latin aroused a great deal of criticism. The major portion of the book consists of a dialogue between Justine and her pupil Christina. Generously illustrated with instructive copperplates, the "Siegemundin" had a great influence and new editions appeared up to 1756.cf. Garrison & Morton 6149 (1st. Ed. 1690) Hirsch V, 394-95 Thomas, Classical Contributions to Obstetrics and Gynecology, pp.54-59 Waller 8923 Fasbender 213-16 Neuburger-Pagel III, 894-96.

         La Divina Commedia di Dante con gli Argomenti, Allegorie, e Dichiarazioni di Lodovico Dolce. Aggiuntovi La vita del Poeta, il Rimario, e due indici utilissimi

      Bergamo: Pietro Lancellotti, 1752. Good. 12mo., 145 x 85 (binding). Contemporary Italian vellum (worn and unsympathetically repaired along joints). Profusely annotated throughout in a microscopic hand. This copy is noteworthy for the profusion of tiny but very neat annotations throughout the text (mostly in the "Purgatory" section), much of which is underlined for emphasis by an early reader. The annotations were written in red ink and pencil, not only in the margins but in between verses, within the Arguments, and at the ends of the Cantos. This edition by Pierantonio Serassi is considered to be both elegant and accurate; the editor adds a biography of Dante Alighieri and a vocabulary of "obscure words," and two very useful indexes (Proper Names and "Rimario") at the end. Provenance: inscription of "G.G. Burkhard" on first blank.
