         Memoirs of the Life of the Late George Frederic Handel To which is added, A Catalogue of his Works, and Observations upon them

      London: R. and J. Dodsley, 1760. 8vo (8 x 5 inches). [iv], 208pp. Half-title. Contemporary English speckled calf. Rebacked, some offsetting from binding at edges of preliminaries and terminal leaves, free endpaper slightly chipped at edges, L1-2 with offset stain. Provenance: armorial bookplate from a member of the Clayton family with motto "quod sors ferit fermus." FIRST EDITION of the first full biography of Handel in any language, with a catalogue of his works. It also provides a summary of music at the end of the Baroque era. The English theologian Mainwaring collaborated with John Christopher Smith, Jr. and Robert Price on the text, and the catalogue was prepared by James Harris. The biography occupies the first 143 pages and is followed by the catalogue of his works, divided into Church Music, Theatrical Music, and Chamber Music. This is followed, on pages 159 to the end, by observations on Handel's works (by Price). "Though he was evidently conversant with music, he devoted most of his attention to the broad outlines of Handel's life and to a multitude of charming anecdotes about the great man, reserving the detailed discussion of the music for Price's portion of the book. Mainwaring probably obtained most of his information from John Christopher Smith, Jr. (1712-1795), a composer who-like his father-worked for Handel for many years in a variety of capacities and consequently knew him well. It is not clear if Mainwaring ever had the opportunity to interview Handel directly" ("Histories of Music," exhibit at Yale University Libraries, Winter-Spring 2011). The work was issued with and without an engraved portrait frontispiece; it is not present here. Gregory and Bartlett, i 162; Hirsch, i (Anhang) 38.

         The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy

      York and London, 1760-67 Nine volumes in five. Contemporary calf, morocco labels. Front free endpaper of vol. I detached, light touchups to spine of vol. I, light wear to joints. A fine set. An excellent copy of Tristram Shandy, one of the most innovative and ambitious works in English literature, from the library of Col. Ralph Isham, discoverer of the Boswell Papers. First edition. Signed by Sterne as usual in volumes 5, 7, and 9 to protect the book from piracy. After the first two volumes were rejected by Dodsley, the leading publisher of literature in London, Sterne revised them and had them published in York. The remaining volumes were published in London to great acclaim, though Johnson, Richardson, and Goldsmith expressed reservations on artistic and moral grounds. Johnson commented, "Nothing odd will do long. Tristram Shandy will not last." "Sterne's first genuine experiment in literature brought him in an instant a worldwide reputation" (DNB). This classic of English literature is one of the most innovative novels in the language and the progenitor of the "stream-of-consciousness" genre. The word "shandy," meaning "half-crazy," is fitting in this madcap, digressive novel, one of the strangest ever published. The famously inventive novel is also noteworthy for its fanciful typography and book design, such as the marbled paper leaf inserted at vol. 3, page 169, the blank page for the reader's imagined portrait of the widow Wadman (vol. 6, page 147), and the black page in the Alas, Poor Yorick! section (vol. 1, pp. 73-74). Because of its episodic nature, fine sets of first editions of Tristram Shandy are rare in the market. This is an especially splendid example. Provenance: bookplates of R. H. Isham, Lionel Damer, and Hobart F. Cole. Ralph H. Isham famously acquired the unpublished James Boswell papers from Malahide Castle, one of the greatest literary discoveries of the 20th century.

         The Royal Gauger; or, Gauging made Perfectly Easy, As it is actually practised by the Officers of his Majesty's Revenue of Excise

      London: C. Hitch and L. Hawke, et al, 1760. Fifth edition. Full-Leather. Very Good. xvii, 474 [484] p. 8 fold-out illustrations, the first three coloured. Two fold-out vouchers. Numerous in-text tables. Binding repaired. Pencil and ink notes on endpapers. Damp stains affecting upper corners. Faint marginalia page 296. Small worm hole in bottom half of page affects second half of book but does not become large enough to affect text until about page 408 onwards. A "gauger" was an officer whose business it was to ascertain the contents of casks, mainly to assist in the prevention of illicit shipments of alcohol. The job of an exciseman, however, also involved checking shipments of soap, starch, candles, coffee, tea, chocolate, etc. and rules for these are also given. Special sections give advice on how to become an excise officer and "cask-Gauging" as practised in the Port of London. Judging by the book's thickness, there was a lot to learn.

Corps d'ouvrage frais malgré quelques cahiers roussis et traces de mouillures marginales sur quelques feuillets. Les Principia de Newton sont considérés comme l'ouvrage le plus important de l'histoire des science. Seconde édition dite "des jésuites", basée sur l'édition de 1739-1742, avec quelques corrections et les modifications apportées au texte. Cette édition est estimée pour les commentaires abondants apportés par ses rédacteurs, Le Seur et Jacquier. Il contient également dans le volume trois, des travaux importants, qui ont reçu le prix de l'Académie française en 1724 pour résoudre le problème du mouvement des marées par la théorie de la gravité : - Traité sur le flux et reflux de la Mer par Daniel Bernoulli (pages 133-246 ). - Causa de Physica Fluxus et Refluxus Maris par Colin Maclaurin (pages 247-282.). - Inquisitio Physica dans Causam Fluxus ac Refluxus Maris par Léonard Euler (pages 283-374). Ces travaux représentent tout ce qui a été fait sur la théorie des marées entre la publication des Principia de Newton et les travaux de Laplace. (Babson catalogue). Réédité cinq fois, l'édition jésuite a tellement dominé le marché qu'aucune autre édition latine des Principia n'a été publiée entre la troisième édition de 1726 et celle de Koyré et Cohen en 1972.

Edition Originale très rare de cet intéressant traité sur la fabrication des indiennes. Ces étoffes de coton peintes, fabriquées originalement en Inde, eurent en France, dès leur introduction au 17e siècle, un véritable succès malgré l'interdiction qui pesait sur leur importation. La prohibition ne fut levée qu'en 1759, et de nombreuses manufactures d'indiennes virent alors le jour dans le pays. L'auteur du présent ouvrage décrit en détail les différentes techniques d'élaboration de ces toiles colorées, en Inde et en Europe, et donne les étapes successives de leur fabrication, s'attardant particulièrement sur la confection des couleurs (l'indigo, le rouge obscur, le gris-de-lin, etc.). A la fin de l'ouvrage, se trouve une table "sur les mordans, et différentes couleurs". 2). Edition Originale (?) de ce poème sur la peinture qui ouvrit à l'artiste et homme de lettres, Claude Henri Watelet (1718-1786), les portes de l'Académie française. Il est illustré d'un frontispice, de deux planches hors-texte représentant des nus, et de nombreuses vignettes et culs-de-lampe, dessinés par J.B.M. Pierre (1714-1789) et gravés par l'auteur. 1).

         La science des ombres, par rapport au dessein [.] avec le Dessinateur au Cabinet et à l'Armée

      1760 - 2 parties en 1 vol., À Paris, chez Charles Antoine Jombert, 1760, in-8, 2 parties en 1 vol, pagination continue de XVI-92-[2]-III et 95 à 168-[4]-III pages, 18 planches, veau havane de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre brune, Nouvelle édition de cet ouvrage publié pour la première fois en 1750. Il comprend 18 planches gravées sur cuivre ; 14 illustrent, dans la première partie la manière de poser les ombres en fonction des formes et de la source lumineuse ; 4 montrent la manière de dessiner des plans de places fortifiées et des paysages alentours. Selon son auteur, cet ouvrage est destiné principalement "à ceux qui veulent dessiner l'architecture civile & militaire", à savoir les arpenteurs et les topographes ; c'est leur adresse que la seconde partie est consacrée. Le lieutenant Dupain de Montesson, né vers 1715 et mort dans les années 1790, était ingénieur topographe, ingénieur géographe et cartographe dans l'Armée. Sa contribution à l'art de la cartographie n'est pas négligeable ; on lui doit le relevé de nombreux plans dont ceux de la place de Courtrai, du cours du bas Rhin et des environs de Bayonne. Ex-libris manuscrit de Michel Javey au faux-titre et étiquette manuscrite au contreplat : "à M:el Javey de Baume. État intérieur assez moyen, avec quelques rousseurs et des salissures marginales et des petites déchirures sans manque à 2 planches ; une planche dépliante est rognée très court, avec perte marginale affectant légèrement l'illustration.

Andrea Palladio is famous for his landmark architectural designs in the Veneto area of Italy, influenced by Roman and Greek architecture and primarily by Vesuvius, and is widely recognized as one of the most influential architects in the history of Western architecture. He developed three main types of palazzi, and also established an influential new building prototype for the agricultural villas of the aristocracy. This volume interestingly contains designs for a handful of projects which were never completed. An extremely scarce and beautiful work; as of December 2017, WorldCat locates only two institutional holdings of this volume in North America.
