         Sobre el estado, y honor de Salillas. Por Don Miguel Perez de Pomar Lopez Fernandez de Heredia . Con el Marques de Ariño.(Madrid, 24 May

      1758 - Fine engraving (118 x 75mm) on title of Nuestra Señora del Pilar(Our Lady of the Pillar),Zaragoza, title within typographic border. Sm folio (288 x 205mm). [1], 18 ff. Fine contemporaryBrokatpapier by Johann Michael Munck of Augsburg, crimson paper richly decorated in gold, with a background of swirling acanthus leaves, a hunter on horseback, various hunters on foot with shotgun, spear and horn,a femalehunterwith gun and bird of prey, various hounds, a stag, boar, ox, birds, fox,goat and squirrel (a little rubbed at head of spine). An unusual combination of splendid brocade paper from Augsburg, with hunting scenes in gold embossed on crimson ground, found as a binding ona rare Madrid printing of regulations compiled for the rule of Salillas in the province of Huesca, Aragon. The regulations were compiled by José de Gálvez y Gallardo (1720-1787), alawyer in Madrid, who becameone of the Spanish political pioneers in New Spain. He was born in Malaga, Spain, in 1729, of impoverished but nobleparentage. They contrived, however, to him a good education, and he subsequently obtained a post as advocate at the French Embassy, where he came in contact with many influential friends. He was sent to Mexico in 1761, as Inspector General, and three years later was given supreme powers. He did much to help the Indians, and organised the expedition to Monterey, which the Spanish reached in 1770, thus bringing to a successful end the two hundred years' effort of Spain to secure herself in California. Only one other copy traced, at theBiblioteca Nacional de España, Madrid. Ref: Priestley, Herbert Ingram.José de Gálvez, Visitor-General of New Spain, 1765-1771.

         1758 1st Church ed Edmund Spenser Faerie Queene Fairy Queen Tudor Elizabeth I

      London : Printed by William Faden, 1758. First edition thus - 1758 1st Church ed Edmund Spenser Faerie Queene Fairy Queen Tudor Elizabeth I “For there is nothing lost, that may be found, if sought.” Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene Edmund Spenser is one of the most well-known 16th-century English poets. His most-famous poem, ‘The Faerie Queene’ is one of fantasy and allegory that celebrated the Tudors and Queen Elizabeth. Spenser explores human emotion, consciousness, and conflict and drew much of his influence from Italian greats Ariosto and Tasso. He embodied Elizabethan values and British history, but he also wanted to have literary freedom balancing history and myth. Samuel Johnson was well-versed with ‘The Faerie Queene’ as it was a ‘useful source for obsolete and archaic words’ as he was organizing his ‘Dictionary’. This 1758 edition was edited by Ralph Church who included new notes to this landmark work. This edition was the first with Church’s notes and comments. It was also the first 18th-century edition of ‘Faerie Queene’ that was printed by its publisher. (Wilkinson). Item number: #2395 Price: $750 SPENSER, Edmund The faerie queene : by Edmund Spenser.

         The History and Practice of the High Court of Chancery

      London: Printed by Henry Lintot for J. Worral and W. Owen, 1758 SIGNED BY CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN MARSHALL. FIRST EDITION of this law book from the library of John Marshall, signed twice (on the front free endpaper and on the front cover). The most important chief justice in the history of the United States Supreme Court, John Marshall was one of the great figures in the establishment of our judicial, legal, and political system. John Marshall rose quickly from frontier log cabin beginnings (albeit from one of Virginia's leading families) to become one of the most respected statesmen in America. After serving for a year as secretary of state under John Adams, Marshall became Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, a post he held from 1801 to 1835. Over those 35 years he transformed the Court, established the power of judicial review, and helped define the Constitution for future generations, making the third branch co-equal with the executive and legislative branches. As Story wrote, "Your expositions of constitutional law enjoy a rare and extraordinary authority. They constitute a monument of fame far beyond the ordinary memorials of political and military glory. They are destined to enlighten, instruct, and convince future generations; and can scarcely perish but with the memory of the constitution itself" (Story, Commentaries). As a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, Marshall chaired a committee in 1787 to amend the act establishing the High Court of Chancery in Virginia. It is likely that Marshall used this very book, Gilbert's Chancery, in preparing to reform the law, which had been written by Thomas Jefferson ten years before (see Beveridge, Life of John Marshall I: 224-25). Gilbert (1674-1726) was an important English jurist whose writings were widely read by the Founders. For example, Jefferson owned five of his books. Gilbert ultimately rose to the position of Chief Baron of the Exchequer of England in 1725. His Chancery was an enormously influential book: "all other works on equity, which have subsequently appeared may be, in some sense, considered as modifications of Lord Gilbert's treatise" (Isaac Grant). Contemporary tan calf, red morocco label. Light browning. Joints neatly reinforced. A handsome copy. Fine half morocco case. This rare book from John Marshall's library is an outstanding legal and constitutional history association copy.

Woodcut headpiece and large, elegant woodcut initial on second leaf recto. Woodcut headpiece and initial on p. 1. In good to very good condition. (2 ll.), 16 pp., (2 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this funeral elegy for the Infante D. António, third surviving son of D. Pedro II of Portugal and Queen Maria Sophia Isabel of Neuburg. He was a brother of D. João V, and uncle of D. José I. Born in Lisbon on March 15, 1695, he died unmarried and without issue in the same city on October 20, 1757 and is buried at the Royal Pantheon of the Bragança Dynasty, at the Mosteiro de São Vicente de Fora in Lisbon. Something of a rogue, he spent most of his life estranged from the royal court. D. António took great interest in music, playing the harpsichord and piano, and was a student of the Italian composer Domenico Scarlatti.The famous Franciscan Friar (1686-after 1759), a native of Bahia, who joined the Franciscan order at the convento de Sergipe do Conde, in 1702, merited inclusion (with numerous errors, including an erroneous early date of death), in Pereira da Silva's Varões ilustres do Brasil. He studied at the convento de Olinda prior to moving to the island of Madeira, then to Lisbon, where he took Holy Orders. Professor of theology, he was Penitenciário geral of his congregation. When D. João V sent a fleet at the request of Pope Clement XI in 1717 to expel the Turks from Corfu, he was present as chaplain, and was gravely wounded, causing the amputation of his left leg. Fray Francisco knew French, English, Italian and Latin; he made several trips within Europe, visiting England and the Low Countries; during a stay in Italy he was incorporated into the Arcádia Romana. He was a member of the Academia Real de História. A number of his sermons, elegies, orations, and poems were published during his lifetime; others remained in manuscript. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 770; período colonial p. 334.

         Autograph letter in French to Francesco Algarotti (1712-64), essayist & art critic, signed:

      ‘Formey’, dated: Berlin, 29 August 1758. - 2 pages, recto & verso. Formey informs Algarotti that he is sending him some of his smaller works (‘opuscules’) . It is true that Hume’s essays speak for themselves; and I believe I shall please you in procuring them for you. The translation was done for M. de Maupertuis; but as there were still many inaccuracies , I have revised it carefully, and have added the preface with most of the notes. The Consolations (n.1) are a fruit of my usual reflections . The little story is by Rousseau, Citizen of Geneva, designated by the initial Letters. Finally the spectaculum naturae project may perhaps produce a fairly good work, of which you will spread the knowledge in our quarters. I . add a little message for His Em[inence] Cardinal Passionei (n.2) who has most amply compensated me for the loss of His Eminence Quirini.’(n.3) ‘M. Euler (n.4) claims to have answered . your questions on the Acad. of Sp. P. as it appears from the attached [?] little book. If that is so, some letter must have been lost, but I imagine that . M. Euler can answer a second time.’ Formey trusts that Algarotti will obtain those volumes of the Encyclopédie he still lacks without difficulty sending one by special post. ‘Madame de Maupertuis (n.5) has had no news from her husband (n.6) for two weeks, although correspondence has been more or less reopened. That worries her I have no doubt that V[oltaire] (n. 7) is corresponding with the King, though one must absolutely not take an oath on anything. He leads a very agreeable life in the Helvetic domains, sometimes near Geneva, sometimes near Lausanne. He has, according to the Gazettes, permission to return to Paris; but no doubt he will only show himself there. There is always wit, his own wit, in his latest productions, . The Abbe de Prades (n.8) has been replaced by a young employed man named Cat (n.9), of whom much good is reported. Fr. Frisi (n.10) has his medal at last; and I am charmed, the delays in this affair having caused as much distress to me as to him. The letter concludes with Formey’s announcing the arrival of his sixth living daughter, mentioning that he has not yet received some books sent to him by Algarotti. (1) Consolations pour les personnes Valétudinaires published in Berlin, 1758. (2) Domenico Silvio Passionei (1682-1761), liberal Catholic, Vatican Librarian. (3) Angelo Maria Quirini (1680-1755), successor to Passionei as Vatican Librarian, member of the academies of Berlin, Vienna & Russia, disagreed with Pope Benedict XIV over the appointment of his predecessor, Cardinal Passionei, and fell into disfavour. (4) Leonhard Euler (1707-83), Swiss mathematician & physicist; one of the greatest 18th century mathematicians. (5) Eleonore von Bork, whom Maupertius had married in 1745. (6) Maupertius had been in bad health and died the following year. (7) Voltaire had quarreled with Frederick the Great and left Berlinin 1752, but their correspondence continued.
