        Der einzig mögliche Beweisgrund zu einer Demonstration des Daseyns Gottes. Königsberg: Johann Jakob Kanter, 1763.

      - 8vo, 14, 205, [1] pp., contemporary marbled boards, worn with loss at top of spine, title-page with an old name in ink, uniform browning and a waterstain running through, an acceptable copy of the first edition. Adickes 33. ‘Kant’s early writings such as The One Possible Basis for a Demonstration of the Existence of God engage the concept of God in terms of principles and arguments that had been framed by the metaphysical systems of Leibniz and Wolff as well as by the theoretical structure of Newtonian physics. Kant had not yet articulated a definitive break with the approach of the rationalist metaphysics of his predecessors, so his discussions presuppose the validity of the enterprise of constructing an adequate theoretical argument for the existence of God. Even so, he makes a number of points in these works that prefigure key arguments that his mature critical philosophy will later raise against the way rationalist metaphysics had traditionally treated the status and function of the concept of God. In particular he has already formulated a central feature of the main objection that he will raise against the ontological argument in the Critique of Pure Reason, namely, that existence is not a predicate’ (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy).

        AN HEBREW GRAMMAR, COLLECTED CHIEFLY FROM THOSE OF MR. ISRAEL LYONS, TEACHER OF HEBREW IN THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE; AND THE REV. RICHARD GREY, D.D. RECTOR OF HINTON, IN NORTHAMPTONSHIRE; TO WHICH IS SUBJOINED A PRAXIS, TAKEN FROM THE SACRED CLASSICS, AND CONTAINING A SPECIMEN OF THE WHOLE HEBREW LANGUAGE: WITH A SKETCH OF THE HEBREW POETRY, AS RETRIEVED BY BISHOP HARE

      Boston, New-England: Printed by R. and S. Draper, for the Honourable and Reverend the President and Fellows of Harvard-College, 1763. [2], v, [1], 83, [1 blank] pp, with the half title. Original marbled paper over boards, rebacked in calf with modern gilt-lettered spine label on red morocco. Scattered light foxing and toning, lacks front free endpaper. Very Good, with much Hebrew text. The second Hebrew grammar printed in America. Rosenbach says, "The Hebrew types used in its printing were destroyed by fire in January, 1764." Stephen Sewall (1734-1804), a graduate of Harvard College, replaced his teacher Judah Monis-- the author of the first Hebrew grammar printed in America--in teaching Hebrew at Harvard in 1761. From 1764 to 1785 he served as Hancock professor of Hebrew and other Oriental languages. Josiah Quincy, in 'The History of Harvard College', writes, "Professor Sewall was the most distinguished classical scholar, at that period, among the alumni of the seminary, and, considering his opportunities, his knowledge of Oriental language was extensive." John Quincy Adams wrote to John Adams on 21 May 1786, "He [Sewall] was obliged to resign, because, it was said he was addicted to drinking. He most sacredly declared, at the Time, that the accusation was false."FIRST EDITION. Evans 9514. Rosenbach 43. Goldman, Hebrew Printing in America 172.

        Opera Minora; emendata, aucta, et renovata. I: Anatomica; Ad Partes Corporis Humani, vitales, animales, naturales; II: Operum Anatomici Argumenti Minorum. … III: Operum Anatomici …

      Lausannae: Francisci Grasset, 1763-1768. Lausannae:: Francisci Grasset, 1763-1768., 1763. Three volumes (vol. II in 2 parts) [complete]. 4to. xxii, [2], 608; vi, v-ii, 311, [6], 312-607, [1]; [2], 388 pp. Title printed in red and black, title vignettes, engraved decorations, (additional original title "Tomus Secundus pars prima" folded and inserted in Vol. III), 36 folding plates, 1 folding table (vol. I: 12 folding plates, numbered I-XII; vol. II: 1 folding table facing p. 584 and 6 folding plates, numbered I-V, with 4ta included; vol.. III: 17 folding plates numbered VII-XXII, with pl. IXa+IXb), errata, indexes, decorative headpiece and a few tail-pieces (vols. I and II); occasional foxing or browning, first few preliminaries of vol. III at bottom gutter margin a bit torn. Original half calf over brown boards, all edges marbled; heavily worn, joints broken or cracked (covers loose). Bookplates of George Sumner Huntington and Columbia University Libraries; bookseller labels of Paul B. Hoeber and A.E. Foote, M.D., Philadelphia. "As is" binding, though internally very good. First edition. There are two issues of this work, one with a double medallion on the title of vol. I and the other with a single vignette, as with the present copy. Some copies were issued with a general title with Haller's portrait included, dated 1762 (not with this copy). Complete copies are illustrated with 36 detailed copperplate engravings. This pioneering work marks the beginning of scientific teratology (see the third vol.). The entire work is a compilation of papers written by Haller from the period 1730-50s now revised for this collected work. "Haller's investigations of monsters and deformities led him to observations from which he was later able to make significant generalizations." Included in this study was work on premature twins who were joined at the chest and upper abdomen. The twins shared the liver, spleen, diaphragm and heart, with all other organs independent. "Most important, each had a separate nervous systen and was therefore theoretically capable of expressing his own will …" Haller deduced that the "anima did not reside in the blood as had been thought previously." – DSB (VI, p. 62). "With the many scientific corrections which Haller was able to present to anatomists, owing to his exact investigations and to his studies under Albinus, he was bound to make pictorial representations of anatomic preparations the main object of his care. His illustrations are therefore very numerous. They are very clear, vivid, highly exact, and artistic. The greater part of them had been scattered through his many writings and these were later collected by Haller himself under the title Opera minora… Haller himself esteemed this work and his Icones….as among his best productions." – Choulant, History and Bibliography of Anatomic Illustration, p. 289). Haller first described hermaphrodites in 1751 (Da Costa mentions, Hermaphroditis Lecta die 23 aprilis in primo regiae societatis conventu. In Commentarii societatis regiae scientiarum Gottingensi. 1:126, 1752). His "Hermaphroditi Commentarius" appears in this collected edition [vol. II, pp. 9-30]. "In this work, von Haller analyses various cases of hermaphroditism in animals and humans and, whenever possible, makes use of anatomical dissections. He admits that most of the so-called human hermaphrodites are in fact men or women with some kind of genital deformations. He considers, nevertheless, that although rare, it is possible to find more extreme cases of sexual ambiguity."… "On the question of the existence of true hermaphrodites, in accordance with the view he had presented in his previous dissertation on the subject, van Haller does not straightforwardly [Fontes] da Costa, Anatomical Expertise and the Hermaphroditic Body, [2007], 83, deny their existence (360). He admits only that it would be difficult for such occurrences to exist. He remarks, however, that it seems almost inevitable that one of the two sexes (or both) would be defective and hence that if true hermaphrodites do exist, they can only be imperfect." – Palmira Fontes Da Costa, "Albrecht von Haller and the Debate on the Existence of Human Hermaphrodites," Portuguese Journal of Philosophy, 01/2010; vol. 41, p. 82. Garrison and Morton states of the third volume: "Reprints and updates Haller's earlier essays on various malformations. This work marks the beginning of scientific teratology, placing it on a foundation of sound anatomical description." Provenance: George Sumner Huntington (1861-1927) was a medical doctor and scholar of comparative anatomy. He graduated from Columbia College in 1884 and was professor of anatomy at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons for over 35 years. A.E. Foote, M.D. (1846-1895), Albert Edward Foote, was born in Hamilton, Madison County, New York. He graduated from Courtland Academy in Homer, New York. "Foote obtained his medical degree in 1867 from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. In 1870, after teaching for three years at Ann Arbor, he took a position as Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Mineralogy at Iowa State Agricultural College, was promoted to Full Professor in 1871, and married Augusta Matthews in January of 1872." He became immersed in the business of mineralogy and collecting the same. "In 1875 he moved to Philadelphia and set up practice there as a physician, mineralogist, and seller of medical and other scientific books." "…Foote died of a chronic tuberculosis infection on October 10, 1895, at the young age of 49, having built one of the largest and most successful mineral dealerships in history, and boasting 'the largest stock of minerals in the world.'" – See: Curtis Schuh, The Mineralogical Record, Inc.

Francesco Merli Primo Medico degli Eserciti, e Reali Ospedali di Sua Maestà Siciliana a D. Lorenzo Zona Medico primario della Città di Capua, In Napoli, presso Vincenzo Flauto,1764. (2 b.), LXXX pp. Prima edizione non comune di questo scritto del noto medico Francesco Merli che fu medico degli Eserciti e dei Reali Ospedali del Regno delle Due Sicilie. L'opera in forma di lettere ripercorre la storia ed il decorso della celebre epidemia di febbri putride che colpì Napoli nel 1764, vista con gli occhi di colui che si trovò in prima linea ad affrontarla. Contiene anche un trattato del balsamo Salazarino. "Nell'anno 1762 una carestia strisciante fece diminuire marcatamente le scorte di cereali e le autorità, persistendo stolidamente nei propri errori di valutazione, permisero che i grandi produttori e commercianti del sud Italia aggravassero la crisi granaria con la vendita di ingenti quantità di cereali all'estero. Il successivo inverno del 1763 fu tiepido nel clima e non si ebbero danni ai campi di cereali, ma ad esso seguì la disastrosa primavera del 1764, caratterizzata da freddo, piogge, temporali, inondazioni che sconvolsero soprattutto le zone pianeggianti coltivate del Regno di Napoli e provocarono frane nelle zone collinose e montane: in tal modo le raccolte delle messi furono pessime sia dal punto di vista quantitativo che qualitativo. Fu questo il periodo in cui la carestia - strisciante negli anni precedenti - si manifestò in tutta la sua terribile realtà, facendo evidenziare appieno la fragilità sociale ed economica dell'organizzazione statale del Regno di Napoli. I pochi raccolti sparirono, soprattutto per l'incetta da parte di speculatori e, conseguentemente, per le difficoltà dell'approvvigionamento vi fu una risalita esorbitante dei prezzi all'ingrosso e al minuto. Logicamente dopo sei mesi di fame e di tribolazioni risaltarono anche tutte le deficienze organizzative del sistema san

        Opera Minora; emendata, aucta, et renovata. I: Anatomica; Ad Partes Corporis Humani, vitales, animales, naturales; II: Operum Anatomici Argumenti Minorum. ... III: Operum Anatomici ...

      Lausannae:: Francisci Grasset, 1763-1768., 1763. Three volumes (vol. II in 2 parts) [complete]. 4to. xxii, [2], 608; vi, v-ii, 311, [6], 312-607, [1]; [2], 388 pp. Title printed in red and black, title vignettes, engraved decorations, (additional original title "Tomus Secundus pars prima" folded and inserted in Vol. III), 36 folding plates, 1 folding table (vol. I: 12 folding plates, numbered I-XII; vol. II: 1 folding table facing p. 584 and 6 folding plates, numbered I-V, with 4ta included; vol.. III: 17 folding plates numbered VII-XXII, with pl. IXa+IXb), errata, indexes, decorative headpiece and a few tail-pieces (vols. I and II); occasional foxing or browning, first few preliminaries of vol. III at bottom gutter margin a bit torn. Original half calf over brown boards, all edges marbled; heavily worn, joints broken or cracked (covers loose). Bookplates of George Sumner Huntington and Columbia University Libraries; bookseller labels of Paul B. Hoeber and A.E. Foote, M.D., Philadelphia. "As is" binding, though internally very good. First edition. There are two issues of this work, one with a double medallion on the title of vol. I and the other with a single vignette, as with the present copy. Some copies were issued with a general title with Haller's portrait included, dated 1762 (not with this copy). Complete copies are illustrated with 36 detailed copperplate engravings. This pioneering work marks the beginning of scientific teratology (see the third vol.). The entire work is a compilation of papers written by Haller from the period 1730-50s now revised for this collected work. "Haller's investigations of monsters and deformities led him to observations from which he was later able to make significant generalizations." Included in this study was work on premature twins who were joined at the chest and upper abdomen. The twins shared the liver, spleen, diaphragm and heart, with all other organs independent. "Most important, each had a separate nervous systen and was therefore theoretically capable of expressing his own will ..." Haller deduced that the "anima did not reside in the blood as had been thought previously." - DSB (VI, p. 62). "With the many scientific corrections which Haller was able to present to anatomists, owing to his exact investigations and to his studies under Albinus, he was bound to make pictorial representations of anatomic preparations the main object of his care. His illustrations are therefore very numerous. They are very clear, vivid, highly exact, and artistic. The greater part of them had been scattered through his many writings and these were later collected by Haller himself under the title Opera minora... Haller himself esteemed this work and his Icones....as among his best productions." - Choulant, History and Bibliography of Anatomic Illustration, p. 289). Haller first described hermaphrodites in 1751 (Da Costa mentions, Hermaphroditis Lecta die 23 aprilis in primo regiae societatis conventu. In Commentarii societatis regiae scientiarum Gottingensi. 1:126, 1752). His "Hermaphroditi Commentarius" appears in this collected edition [vol. II, pp. 9-30]. "In this work, von Haller analyses various cases of hermaphroditism in animals and humans and, whenever possible, makes use of anatomical dissections. He admits that most of the so-called human hermaphrodites are in fact men or women with some kind of genital deformations. He considers, nevertheless, that although rare, it is possible to find more extreme cases of sexual ambiguity."... "On the question of the existence of true hermaphrodites, in accordance with the view he had presented in his previous dissertation on the subject, van Haller does not straightforwardly [Fontes] da Costa, Anatomical Expertise and the Hermaphroditic Body, [2007], 83, deny their existence (360). He admits only that it would be difficult for such occurrences to exist. He remarks, however, that it seems almost inevitable that one of the two sexes (or both) would be defective and hence that if true hermaphrodites do exist, they can only be imperfect." - Palmira Fontes Da Costa, "Albrecht von Haller and the Debate on the Existence of Human Hermaphrodites," Portuguese Journal of Philosophy, 01/2010; vol. 41, p. 82. Garrison and Morton states of the third volume: "Reprints and updates Haller's earlier essays on various malformations. This work marks the beginning of scientific teratology, placing it on a foundation of sound anatomical description." Provenance: George Sumner Huntington (1861-1927) was a medical doctor and scholar of comparative anatomy. He graduated from Columbia College in 1884 and was professor of anatomy at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons for over 35 years. A.E. Foote, M.D. (1846-1895), Albert Edward Foote, was born in Hamilton, Madison County, New York. He graduated from Courtland Academy in Homer, New York. "Foote obtained his medical degree in 1867 from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. In 1870, after teaching for three years at Ann Arbor, he took a position as Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Mineralogy at Iowa State Agricultural College, was promoted to Full Professor in 1871, and married Augusta Matthews in January of 1872." He became immersed in the business of mineralogy and collecting the same. "In 1875 he moved to Philadelphia and set up practice there as a physician, mineralogist, and seller of medical and other scientific books." "...Foote died of a chronic tuberculosis infection on October 10, 1895, at the young age of 49, having built one of the largest and most successful mineral dealerships in history, and boasting 'the largest stock of minerals in the world.'" - See: Curtis Schuh, The Mineralogical Record, Inc.

Extremities with wear and front free end-papers heavily annotated. Each leaf printed in two collum. Multi-language (In Latin, Russian, French, and German).Internally fine. (2), 215 pp. ¶ Russian translation of Joachim Lange's influential popular "Colloquia Scholastica" translated by Martin Schwanwitz. "After having returned to the Academy of Science in 1735, Schwanwitz got the order to translate Joachim Lange's popular "Colloquia Scholastica" into Russian, whereas his colleague Johann Eberhard Fischer, rector of the Academy School's Latin Section, translated the Latin part into German. The new Latin-Russian-German-French version was published in 1738 at the Academy Press (reprints followed around 1748/49 [year, indicated on the title of this edition: 1738], in 1763 [number of copies published: 1200] and 1789). In Russian schools, the School Dialogues became highly popular and were used intensely until the end of the 18th century. They were indispensable in the lower German classes, where, according to the Academy school's curricula of 1748 and 1758, their use was compulsory. Later, in 1776, the Moscow University issued a version in five languages that also included a translation into Greek (further editions in 1785 and 1800)." (Deutsches Historisches Institut, Moskau).

His maps of ancient geography, characterized by careful, accurate work and based largely on original research, are especially valuable. He left unknown areas of continents blank and noted doubtful information as such; compared to the lavish maps of his predecessors, his maps looked empty. His first serious map, that of Ancient Greece, was published when he was fifteen. At the age of twenty-two, he was appointed one the king's geographers, and began to attract the attention of first authorities. D'Anville's studies embraced everything of geographical nature in the world's literature, as far as he could muster it: for this purpose, he not only searched ancient and modern historians, travelers and narrators of every description, but also poets, orators and philosophers. One of his cherished subjects was to reform geography by putting an end to the blind copying of older maps, by testing the commonly accepted positions of places through a rigorous examination of all the descriptive authority, and by excluding from cartography every name inadequately supported. Vast spaces, which had before

      Augsburg: Ignatius Adam & Franciscus Antonius Veith, 1763. leather_bound. Gut. Mit gest. allegorischen Frontispiz von J. R. Störcklin nach F. C. Rauffer und zwei gest. Widmungstafeln sowie zwei (ident.) Titelvignetten von G. S. Rösch. Titel von Band 1 in Rot und Schwarz. Folio (ca. 38 x 24 cm).

Lateinische und deutsche Texte. - Oefele (1706-1780) war ein hochangesehener Gelehrter, Historiker, Bibliothekar, Hofrat und Kabinettsekretär am Münchener Fürstenhof. Durch seine vielfältigen Kontakte wurde er Mittelpunkt eines aufklärerisch orientierten Gelehrtenkreises ("Oefelegesellschaft"). - "Die "Scriptores rerum Boicarum" sollten erstmals sowohl Urkunden als auch erzählende Quellen aus ganz Bayern umfassen. Da dieses Unternehmen die Kräfte eines einzelnen bei weitem überstieg, stützte O. sich meist auf Abschriften unterschiedlicher Qualität aus bayer. Klöstern und Stiftern, aus dem Kreis seiner Korrespondenten und der "Oefelegesellschaft", aus der Hofbibliothek und aus eigenen Sammlungen. ... Der erste Band der "Scriptores rerum Boicarum" wurde 1753/54 gesetzt, doch O.s Zögern und Zweifel verhinderten eine prompte Auslieferung; diese erfolgte erst neun Jahre später, gemeinsam mit dem zweiten Band. Das lang erwartete Werk begründete O.s Ansehen auf Dauer. Ein geplanter 3. Band gelangte über heuristische Ansätze nicht hinaus" (NDB). "Die herausragenden Leistungen des Verlags der Gebrüder Veith bei der Veröffentlichung gelehrter Werke hatten... Oefele... dazu bewogen, seine große Quellenedition... diesem Augsburger Verlag anzuvertrauen" (Gier/Janota, Augsburger Buchdruck... S. 505). - Insgesamt ungewöhnlich gut erhaltene dekorative Lederbände mit wenigen kleinen Einbandschäden (einige Wurmlöcher, kl. Fehlstelle am Kapital von Bd. 2, leicht berieben bzw. Kratzspur auf dem Deckel, Ecken etwas bestoßen/angeplatzt). Innen breitrandig und sehr sauber. Jeweils mit Exlibris der Bibliothek Wessely, Wien auf dem Vorsatz und mit kleinem Stempel "Bibliothek Othmar Wessely" auf dem Titel verso.

        THE HISTORY OF LOUISIANA, OR OF THE WESTERN PARTS OF VIRGINIA AND CAROLINA

      London: Printed for T. Becket and P.A. De Hondt, 1763. Two volumes. [4],l,vii,[1],368pp. plus folding map; [8],272pp. plus two folding map. Half titles. 12mo. Contemporary full calf, gilt ruled, leather spine labels, edges painted red. Front hinges cracked, boards rubbed, spines slightly chipped, light corner and edge wear. Light dampstaining to initial leaves of both volumes, occasional foxing throughout. About very good. First English language edition of one of the most useful contemporary authorities on French Louisiana, based on the author's sixteen-year residence there. Jefferson owned a copy of this London edition, and instructed Lewis and Clark to take a copy on their expedition (Lewis borrowed Benjamin Smith Barton's single-volume second London edition of 1774). Le Page du Pratz offers a great deal of useful information about the Natchez and other Mississippi tribes, and his work as a whole has been the basis for many later studies of the period. "...Valuable for showing French claims to southern territory east of the Mississippi and for particulars concerning Indian nations there" - Howes. Of special interest is a short account of Louis de St. Denis' expedition to New Mexico in 1715. "...A curious mixture of history, travel narrative, tall stories, and reminiscences...touch[ing] upon almost every phase of Louisiana in his time..." - Clark. There is a folding plan of New Orleans and a "Carte de la Louisiane," which shows a large eastward- flowing Missouri River. HOWES L266, "b." CLARK I:75. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 2261. GRAFF 2463.
