        A SERMON PREACHED IN BOSTON, NEW-ENGLAND, BEFORE THE SOCIETY FOR ENCOURAGING INDUSTRY, AND EMPLOYING THE POOR; AUGUST 8. 1753. BY.PASTOR OF A CHURCH IN BOSTON

      Printed by J. Draper, Boston 1753 - [2], 38, [2 blanks] pp. Lacking the half title, disbound. Else Very Good. "For many years pastor of the Brattle Street Church, and later ardent defender of the rights of the colonists" [Streeter Sale 684], Cooper was an intimate friend of John Adams and Benjamin Franklin. This is one of only "a small number of sermons and miscellaneous pamphlets" that he wrote [DAB]. Cooper's sermon opens a window on mid-18th century American views of charity and self-help. Relying on biblical sources, he argues that charitable enterprises are public ones. A charitable person is a "Patriot- his Bosom glows with Love to his Country.He forms Designs for enlarging the Wealth and Power of his Country, by enlarging it's [sic] commerce.and by introducing and encouraging the most useful Arts and Manufactures." Avoiding pursuits that will encourage the "Wages of Idleness," he knows "that nothing but Industry, and a full Employment of such as have Ability to Work, can make Plenty and Happiness circulate thro' a whole Community." The Society has provided an excellent example of charity, by "setting up the Linnen Manufacture." Evans 6984. Rink 3268.

      1753. "Veduta tratta dalla monumentale opera "" Delle magnificenze di Roma antica e moderna "". Pubblicata in 10 volumi dal 1747 al 1761, l'opera presenta 238 incisioni in rame, ciascuna incisione con testo narrativo che fornisce informazioni storiche e documentarie. Esemplare tratto dall'edizione del 1786. A partire dall'edizione del 1786, l'opera del Vasi, fu aggiornata dal figlio Mariano, che la pubblicò col titolo ""Raccolta delle più belle vedute antiche, e moderne di Roma"", mostrando solo il nome del padre come autore. Questa nuova edizione presentava molte tavole della I edizione, ed alcune nuove. Anche questa di Vasi figlio fu pubblicata più volte, sempre con l'aggiunta di nuove tavole. Acquaforte, completa dei margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione." "View taken from 1786 edition of the Vasi's Delle Magnificenze di Roma Antica e Moderna (first edition, in X books, published between 1747-61). The work was enlarged and reissued under the title ""Raccolta delle più belle vedute antiche, e moderne di Roma"" by Mariano Vasi after his father's death. This edition contains most of the plates from the original work, supplemented by a small number of new engravings. Vasi fils appears to have kept this edition in print for a number of years (a further edition appeared in 1803), and, as RIBA notes, the 'total [number of plates] appears to have been made up with whatever prints were to hand, in addition to a the numbered core of the work (which was itself somewhat fluid)'.

        A Clear State of the Case of Elizabeth Canning, who hath sworn that she was robbed and almost starved to death by a gang of gipsies and other villains in January last, for which one Mary Squires now lies under sentence of death.

      Printed for A. Millar in the Strand. 1753 - [2], 62pp. 8vo. Final leaf dusted & torn without loss of text, with early partial repair. Original stab holes, some sl. marginal tears, several leaves loose. Contemporary ink number '44' at head of titlepage. Disbound. ESTC T89826. FIRST EDITION, one of two issues, this with p.4, line 3 beginning "to require". In 1753, Elizabeth Canning, a servant, disappeared from her mother's home, reappearing one month later, starved, weak, and telling a tale that was to become the subject of over forty pamphlets in 1753-54. She claimed that she was robbed on her way home from visiting some relatives, taken forcibly to a house in Enfield Wash, stripped of her petticoat, gown, stays, and cap, and held captive in an unheated garret room, with only a small amount of bread and water, for one month. She managed to escape through a window and walked the considerable distance back to her mother's house. Henry Fielding, who was Justice of the Peace for Middlesex, issued a warrant for the detention of Wells and Squires, her supposed abductors, and the case went to trial at the Old Bailey in February 1753. Although they were initially found guilty, the Chief Magistrate of London was dissatisfied with the verdict, and the case was re-opened, concluding with Canning's conviction for perjury, one month of imprisonment and seven years of transportation, in July 1754. Whilst awaiting her trial, the press was divided into two camps, identified as the Canningites and Egyptians (for Gypsy Mary Squires). Henry Fielding wrote A Clear Statement of the Case of Elizabeth Canning, and a number of his enemies wrote replies, most notably John Hill. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Istoria civile del regno di Napoli … Con accrescimento di note, riflessioni, medaglie, e molte correzioni, date e fatte dall'Autore, e che non si trovano nella prima edizione

      a spese di Errigo-Alberto Gosse e Comp, 1753. Pp. xxxii, 524; viii, 573 (1) + 1 c.b.; viii, 564; xii, 560. Segue: GIANNONE PIETRO. Opere postume ... in difesa della sua storia civile del regno di Napoli. Con in fine la di lui Professione di fede. Palmyra (Lucca ?), all'Insegna della Verità, 1755. Pp. xii, 303 (1); 84 (46). Cinque volumi di cm. 24,5. Ritratto di Giannone all'antiporta del primo volume, ritratto della dedicataria Fiorenza Ravagnini Vendramin nelle Opere postume, una tavola f.t. di medaglioni. Frontespizi in rosso e nero, graziosi capilettera e alcune belle testatine xilografiche. Legatura coeva in piena perg. rigida con titoli in oro su tass. al dorso; tagli spruzzati. Mancanze marginali ai tasselli, piccoli segni del tempo alle legature, lievi e naturali fioriture dovute alla qualità della carta, macchiette sparse. Esemplare nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione, genuino e marginoso. 1) Pietro Giannone (1676-1748), nativo di Ischitella di Puglia, impiegò circa venti anni di studio e ricerca per compilare e dare alla luce questo imponente lavoro dedicato alla storia del regno di Napoli. L'opera ebbe grandissima circolazione, ma creò scandalo nelle gerarchie ecclesiastiche romane tanto da essere messa all'Indice e condannata al rogo. Giannone infatti dimostrò storiograficamente l'origine storica del papato e la genesi terrena (e assai poco divina) dei poteri arrogatisi da questo nel regno di Napoli. L'A. stesso fu perseguitato, costretto a espatriare e infine incarcerato a vita. Seconda edizione, aumentata e corretta rispetto alla rarissima prima, pubblicata nel 1723 e andata distrutta per le sopraccitate vicende. 2) Prima edizione delle opere postume del Giannone contenente l'Apologia dell'Istoria civile di Napoli e la Professione di fede dedicata al gesuita Giuseppe Sanfelice, spesso mancante. Così Brunet (II, 1584): "La profession de foi de l'auteur ne se trouve pas dans tous les exemplaires de l'edition de 1755, publiée sous l'indication de Palmyra". Raro, soprattutto da trovarsi completo di tutte le parti presenti nel nostro esemplare. Questa fu definita la "migliore edizione" da Benedetto Croce. Cfr. anche Iccu; Graesse, III, 79; Lozzi, 2965..

      - Amsterdam, 1753. 2 volumes in-12, plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs guillochés or, garnis de compartiments ornés d'un jeu de filets d'encadrement et fer spécial répété entre-nerfs, palettes en tête et pied, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge et vert, tranches mouchetées rouges, roulette sur les coupes. Edition collective des "Œuvres philosophiques de La Mettrie". Elle contient la rare seconde édition de 'L'Homme machine', en 109 pages, insérée sous sa page de titre d’origine à la date de 1748. Le plus célèbre et le plus scandaleux des brûlots de La Mettrie, dans lequel il livre ouvertement les principes de sa doctrine radicale, matérialiste et athée, fondée sur un biologisme intégral. Cette véritable seconde se distingue d’un retirage postérieur par l’orthographe de l’imprimeur sur le titre: "Luzac" qui deviendra "Lusac". La première édition, dont il ne subsiste que quelques exemplaires, avait été presque totalement détruite par ordre du Consistoire de Leyde en décembre 1747. I - Discours préliminaire - L'Homme Machine (Leyde, De l'Imp. d'Elie Luzac Fils, 1748) - Traité de l'âme. II - Abrégé des systèmes - Les Animaux plus que Machine L'Homme Plante - Système d'Epicure - Anti-Sénèque ou Discours sur le Bonheur - L'Art de jouir. (Pour 'L’Homme machine': En Français dans le texte, n°151. Garrison & Morton, n°586. Stoddard, La Mettrie, n°31. Tchemerzine-Scheler, III, 949. Pour l’édition collective des œuvres: Stoddard, n°59).

        A Letter from Mr. Franklin to Mr. Peter Collinson, F.R.S. concerning the Effects of Lightening. Philadelphia, June 20, 1751. Read Nov. 14, 1751. (+) A Letter of Benjamin Franklin, Esq: to Mr. Peter Collinson, F.R.S. concerning an electrical Kite. Philadelphia, Oct. 1, 1752. Read Dec. 21, 1752. (2 Papers).

      London, C. Davis, 1753. 4to. Without wrappers. Extracted from "Philosophical Transactions", vol. 47. Including title-page of volume. Title-page with repair to inner margin. Pp. 289-91; pp. 565-70. ¶ First appearance of both papers, one of them being the milestone paper in which Franklin describes his lightning experiment and proves what he had already conjectured, that lightening is an electrical discharge. Both of the present papers were to become part of his famous work "Experiments and Observations on Electricity.." assembled by his friend Peter Collinson, to whom the papers were addressed. The famous letter was also published in the "Gentleman's Magazine" for 1752."Franklin was the first American scientist to achieve an international reputation, with his work on electricity...The most dramatic result of Franklin's researches was the proof that lightening is really an electrical phenomenon. Others had made such a suggestion before him - even Newton himself - but it was he who provided the experimental proof. In 1752 he flew a kite in a thunderstorm and attached a key to its string. From this he collected electrical charges in a Leiden jar and showed that atmospheric and frictional or machine-made electricity are the same. He went on to propose the fixing of iron rods at the top of buildings, masts of ships, etc., from which he conducted the electric charges they collected from lightening into the wet subsoil - the invention of the lightening conductor."His reputation as a scientist was immediately established by the publication of the results of his researches in a series of letters addressed to Peter Collinson, a London merchant and naturalist, in 1751; and the Experiments and Observations [ which collected all the Collinson letters not just those offered here ] remains the most important scientific book of eighteenth-century America." (PMM 199)."Later, Franklin devised a second experiment to test the electrification of clouds (the first was the sentry-box experiment), one which has become more popularly known: the lightning kite. Franklin reported his experiments to Collison in a letter of October 1752 (the paper offered), written after Franklin had read "in the public papers from Europe, of the success of the Philadelphia -Experiment for drawing the electric fire from clouds by means of pointed rods of iron erected on high buildings..." Actually, Franklin appears to have flown his electrical kite prior to having learned of Dalibard's successful execution of the sentry-box experiment. The KITE LETTER, published in the "Philosophical Transactions", referred to the erection of lighetning rods on public buildings in Philadelphia. The lightening experiment caused Franklin's name to become known throughout Europe to the public at large and not merely to men of science. Joseph Priestly, in his "History...of Electricity", characterized the experimental discovery that the lightening discharge is an electrical phenomenon as "THE GREATEST, PERHAPS, SINCE THE TIME OF NEWTON".....the discoveries made in the summer of 1752 will make it memorable in the history of electricity," William Watson wrote in 1753. "These have opened a new field to philosophers, and have given them room to hope, that what they have learned before in their museums, they may apply, with more propriety than they have hitherto could have done, in illustrating the nature and effects of thunder; a phenomenon hitherto almost inaccessible to their inquiries."(DSB V, pp. 134-35).The volume offered contains a series of other notable papers: T. Simpson (mathematics), Thomas Debenham (medicine), James Parsons (Phocae Marinae, the long-necked seal), W. Watson (the sex of flowers), Francis Blake (steem-engine), William Watson (An Account of Mr. Benjamin Franklin's Treatise, lately published, Experiments and Observations on Electricity..."pp. 202-211),Dunthorne (on comets), William Watson ("An Account of the Phaenomena of Electricity in vacuo", pp. 362-376), J. Smeaton (Air-pump), Richard Brooke (surgery), Abbe Nollet (electricity from the clouds), W. Watson (electrical experiments in England upon Thunder-Clouds), etc. etc.

        Coromandel

      Artist: Janvier Sieur Jean d ; issued in: Paris; date: d1753 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Printed on 2 sheets joined together; - size (in cm): 96,5 x 50; - description: The map depicts the Cormandel coast from Nega-Patnam to Madras and Narasapur in India. The Coromandel Coast is the southeastern coast region of the Indian Subcontinent, between the Eastern Ghats and the Bay of Bengal of the Indian Ocean. The coastline runs between False Divi Point in the north to Kanyakumari in the south. Its definition can also include the northwestern coast of the island of Sri Lanka. By late 1530 the Coromandel Coast was home to three Portuguese settlements at Nagapattinam, São Tomé de Meliapore, and Pulicat. Later, in the 17th and 18th centuries, the Coromandel Coast was the scene of rivalries among European powers for control of the India trade. The British established themselves at Fort St George (Madras) and Masulipatnam, the Dutch at Pulicat, Sadras and Covelong, the French at Pondicherry, Karaikal and Nizampatnam, the Danish in Dansborg at Tharangambadi. Eventually the British won out, although France retained the tiny enclaves of Pondichéry and Karaikal until 1954. Chinese lacquer goods, including boxes, screens, and chests, became known as Coromandel goods in the eighteenth century, because many Chinese exports were consolidated at the Coromandel ports.

      "Acquaforte e bulino, 1753, firmata in lastra . Esemplare della contemporanea tiratura romana, secondo stato di cinque, stampata dall'autore nella propria tipografia di Strada Felice. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ""doppio cerchio e giglio"", con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Nel margine inferiore si trovano delle contemporanee scritte ad inchiostro bruno, traduzioni in lingua francese delle iscrizioni incise. Della serie Vedute di Roma. L'opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780." "Etching and engraving, 1753, signed on plate. Example from the contemporary Roman Edition, the second state of five, printed by Piranesi in his tipography of Strada Felice. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark ""double encircled fleur de lys with letters CB"", with margins, good condition. Ink addidition at the lower white margin, trasnslation of the title made by a contemporary French hand. Taken from Vedute di Roma; the whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building." Hind 26, II/V; Focillon 741.

Contemporary three-quarter leather and speckled paper over boards. 19th-century ex-dono inscription in title page and occasional 19th-century marginal notes in German. Spine and nearly all leather perished, joints cracked. 2 x 2 cm. square excision in front free endpaper. Very light occasional foxing, else near fine internally. Overall good. The German translation of Robert Nesbitt's best known work, HUMAN OSTEOGENY EXPLAINED IN TWO LECTURES, first published in London in 1736. Robert Nesbitt (1697-1761) trained at Leiden University under Bernhardus Albinus the Elder (1653-1721) and Herman Boerhaave, the "Dutch Hippocrates" (1668-1738). An Englishman, Nesbitt returned to London after his studies and commenced his medical career; he was admitted as a fellow to the College of Physicians in 1729. The present work comprises two lectures he delivered at the Anatomical Theatre of the Surgeons of London in 1731, in which he demonstrated, for the first time, that bones in the human fetus were generated in both cartilage and membrane. The illustrations on six folding leaves, here engraved by Johann Christian Gottfried Fritzsch (ca. 1720 - 1802), were the first accurately to show the full course of human bone genesis. This edition scarce, with OCLC recording nine copies (all in Europe). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Depot des Cartes et Plans de la Marine (1720 - present), often called the Depot de Marine, was a French hydrographic mapping organization founded in 1720. Much like the U.S. Coast Survey, the British Admiralty, and the Spanish Deposito Hydrografico, the Depot was initiated as a storehouse and distribution center of existing nautical and marine charts. Eventually the Depot initiated its on mapping activities in an attempt to improve and expand upon existing material. Some of the well known hydrograhers / cartographers in the development of Depot were Jacques Nicholas Bellin and Rigobert Bonne. Good, given age. Original middle fold, as issued.
