        L'expédition du Vengeur arrive au Brésil.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 3 In-4 11/08/1757 bon Rare lettre du marquis de Montmorency-Laval, écrite de Rio, au Brésil, après sa traversée à bord du Vengeur lors de l'expédition qui emmenait Lally-Tolendal prendre la gouvernement des Indes. "Le vaisseau Le Vengeur sur lequel j'étais embarqué est enfin arrivé devant Riogenere [Rio de Janeiro] le 3 de ce mois. Vous jugerez aisément du plaisir que j'ai eu de voir la terre après une traversée de 93 jours et beaucoup de contradictions éprouvées. Ma joie a augmenté quand j'ai sçu que M. de Laly y étoit déjà depuis quelques jours, avec une partie de nostre escadre. Il m'a fait l'amitié de me mander de venir à la ville et de m'y garder quoique le vaisseau soit allé à l'Isle Grande. Les Portugais n'ayant absolument pas voulu le recevoir ici, il a mis le comble aux choses agréables qu'il faisait pour moy, en m'apprenant que vous aviés eu la bonté de lui écrire en ma faveur [.]". [Joseph-Auguste, marquis de Montmorency-Laval (1714/1783) colonel d'infanterie et syndic de la Compagnie des Indes, accompagna Lally aux Indes en 1757 et revint en France l'année suivante].

        Noticia de California, y de su Conquesta Temporal, y Espiritual ..

      Madrid: Viuda de Manuel Fernandez, 1757. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. Three volumes. Small 4tos. (24),240; (8),564; (8),436. Four folding copperplate maps: Vol. 1 contains the Mapa de la California, y su Costa Oriental Nuevamente Descubierta, based on Padre Kino's revolutionary map. Vol. 3 contains three maps: Seno de California; Carta de la Mar del Sur; and Mapa de la America Septentl. etc. Full limp vellum, early but probably not contemporary; green leather lettering labels, gilt. Vellum lightly soiled and rubbed, labels chipped, old mend to verso of the map in Volume 1 and to the tittle page of Volume 3, occasional light foxing. But overall a lovely set. In Spanish. The first two volumes were taken from the manuscript of Padre Venegas written between 1734 and 1739. It went unpublished because the Spanish Crown did not want details of New Spain disseminated. But eventually another Jesuit, Padre Burriel, edited the manuscript and added a third volume bringing the work up to date. The large map in volume 1 based on Kino's 1702 map includes ten captioned vignettes depicting local natives and wildlife, and also the martyrdoms of Frs. Carranco and Tamaral. It is indeed revolutionary as was the first attempt to end the notion that California was an island. Padre Consag's map, Seno de California, finished the job and is based on his own findings in a 1746 expedition to the mouth of the Colorado. This is the first printing of that map, considered foundational to the cartographic history of the Southwest. As Tooley notes (p. 111), Kino's map was not generally accepted; it was not until Consag confirmed Kino's discovery that caused Ferdinand VII in 1747 to issue a royal decree: California is not an island. The London edition, issued in 1758, was an abridgment of this work. Not Arizona 100, but arguably should have been; Kino and his followers are treated in several other numbers of that reference. Zamorano 80, No. 78. Cowan, p. 238; Howes V69; Palau 358387.

        Histoire de Joseph, accompagnée de dix figures, relatives aux Principaux Evenemens de la Vie de ce Fils du patriarche Jacob, et gravées sur les modèles du fameux Reimbrandt. Amsterdam, Jean Neaulme, 1757.

      - In-2; title page in two colors: 'HISTOIRE / DE / JOSEPH, / ACCOMPAGNEE DE DIX FIGURES, / Rélatives aux Principaux Evenemens de la / Vie de ce Fils du / PATRIARCHE JACOB, / Et gravées sur le modéles du / FAMEUX REIMBRANDT / Par Monsieur le / COMTE DE CAYLUS / (pasted down) Honoraire de l'Academie des Inscriptions & des / Belle-Lettres;.'. Nine of ten full-page plates reproducing (in reverse) a series of ink drawings which is now in the Louvre (Inv. 22903 to 22912), where they are catalogued as drawings in the manner of Rembrandt; the name of Gerbrandt van den Eeckhout has also been suggested. Caylus was an amateur etcher. He turned into prints many drawings in the collection of the Louvre. After the Introduction is a list of the ten plates. Titled at bottom, signed. I) 'Joseph raconte ses sognes', Joseph telling his dreams; signed at bottom: 'Rembrandt del. / C. Scul.', numbered on bottom right. II) 'Joseph est descendu dans la cisterne', Joseph in the cistern. III) 'Joseph est vendu á des marchands Ismaelites', Joseph being sold to an Ismaelite merchant. V) 'Chasteté de Joseph.', the chastity of Joseph. VI) 'La femme de Putiphar accuse Joseph'.VII) 'Joseph dans la prison'.VIII) 'Joseph explique les songes de Pharaon'IX) 'Joseph governeur d'Egypte'X) 'Joseph, reconnu par ses freres'. plate nr. IV missing "Jacob affligé a la vue de la robe de Joseph'. Caylus conceived this booklet as illustrated book to give an account on the life of Joseph. Some etchings are more successful than others, also considering Caylus' endless experimenting with the techninque. See for example plate nr. II: the darkest areas are in fact white here. Possibly something went wrong during the etching process. Pages and plates loose; cardboard binding loose and damaged. Foxing and smudges especially on the external margins. Etching and letterpress on paper. Plates: ca. 219 x 160 mm, total: 325 x 195 mm; brownings and tears along the most external margins; plates still in good condition; light foxing on margins of plates. Cohen, 210.

        The History of the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem, styled afterwards, the Knights of Rhodes, and at present, the Knights of Malta.

      Edinburgh: Printed by R. Fleming, for A. Kincaid and A. Donaldson, Yair and Fleming, and W. Gray, 1757 - 5 volumes, duodecimo in sixes (165 x 94 mm). Contemporary calf, dark tawny-coloured labels. Engraved armorial bookplates (by the fashionable Pugh Brothers, Lincoln's Inn) of Marquess of Headfort, most likely Thomas Taylor, 3rd marquess (1822-1894, succeeded to title 1870). Head of spine chipped on volume I, extremities chipped on volume V, old dark stains on back cover of volume I, touch of worming at foot of front joint on volume V (which has not progressed internally). An excellent set, clean, crisp and sound. First small format edition in English, following the two-volume folio of 1728 and originally published in French in 1726. Commissioned by the Order themselves, Vertot's history remained the standard work for two centuries. The Abbé's "talent as an historian was more of a literary than of a critical character" (Catholic Encyclopaedia), which perhaps was fitting for the telling of a tale of such legendary scope and scale. The Order was founded in Jerusalem after the reconquest in 1099; forced from the Holy Land after the fall of Acre in 1291, they settled briefly on Cyprus before being gifted lands on Rhodes. They were expelled from there by Suleiman the Magnificent after a six month siege in 1522, and after a short sojourn on Sicily, the Order was granted the islands of Malta and Gozo by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. In 1565 the Order organized the heroic resistance to the Siege of Malta, the island losing over a third of its population while withstanding a bombardment of nearly 150,000 cannon shots. Even if the Siege did little to alter the balance of power in the Mediterranean, it was the first true defeat of the Ottoman Empire in a century and lifted European morale immeasurably, and such was its resonance that two hundred years later Voltaire could remark; "Rien n'est plus connu que le siège de Malte" ["Nothing is better known than the Siege of Malta"]. The text also includes Vertot's 'Discourse upon the Alcoran', originally given before L'Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres in 1724, and his 'Dissertation on Zizim', a historiographical study of Cem Sultan's time on Rhodes. A very appealing set in a contemporary trade binding of plain calf.

        An account of the discoveries concerning comets, with the way to find their orbits, and some improvements in constructing and calculating their places. For which reason are here added new tables, fitted to those purposes; particularly with regard to that Comet which is soon expected to return.

      London: Printed for J. Whiston and B. White, 1757. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (223 x 177 mm). [6], 52, [2] pp., including folding engraved plate. Bound in 20th century cloth, spine titled in black (little soiling of boards, new endpapers). Title-page browned and somewhat soiled, little chipping to fore-edge, plate with slight loss along a fold, text little browned in outer margins, but otherwise clean and unmarked. ---- RARE FIRST EDITION. The author's principal work, containing a catalogue of the elements of the comets then known, and an explanation of Newton's problem of finding a comet's orbit from three observations. The most valuable (and most original) part is the "Table of the Parabola," for ascertaining any orbits which are approximately parabolic." (Wikisource). The work is quite scarce: only two copies have sold at auction since 1975, according to American Book Prices Current. - Visit our website for additional images and information. Very Good.

        Essai sur les causes du déclin du commerce étranger de la Grande Bretagne

      s.e, 1757. Due volumi di cm. 16,5, pp. (2) 302; (2), 392. Fregio al frontespizio, alcune testatine e capilettera xil. Graziosa legatura coeva in mezza pelle con punte; dorso a 5 nervi con titoli, filetti ornati e fregi in oro. Carta decorata ai piatti e tagli spruzzati. Mancanza alla parte alta del dorso di un volume e qualche forellino; lievi fioriture e qualche sporadica macchetta. Esemplare nel complesso genuino e ben conservato. Matthew Decker (1679-1749), nativo di Amsterdam, fu direttore della East India Company ed esperto di dinamiche commerciali. Definito da Adam Smith "an excellent authority", Decker si distinse per una visione del commercio internazionale basata sulla condanna delle restrizioni economiche. Le difficoltà della politica commerciale della Gran Bretagn sono indagnate puntigliosamente in relazione al sistema fiscale vigente nella prima metà del Settecento. La soluzione proposta da Decker consisteva nell'abolizione dei dazi e nell'istituzione di una tassa sul lusso, misura finalizzata a contrastare i monopoli, a fortificare i redditi più bassi anche attraverso il rilancio dell'industria. Prima traduzione francese (prima assoluta 1744) curata da J.P. de Gua de Malves, che integrò il lavoro di Decker con un brillante commento critico. Opera interessante e poco comune. Cfr. Kvk; Kress 5600; Goldsmiths 9242; Higgs 1465; non in Cat. Einaudi..
