         An Inquiry into the Principles of Political Oeconomy

      STEUART, Sir James. An Inquiry into the Principles of Political Oeconomy. London, A.Millar and T.Cadell 17672 volumes, quarto, contemporary calf, a little rubbed and scuffed, spines with five raised bands ruled in gilt, red morocco labels lettered gilt and oval green morocco labels numbered gilt, top of spines worn, hinges with short splits but firm and holding, xvpp + (1p) errata + (6) + 639pp; (8) + 646pp + (6) + (1) errata, 2 folding tables, engraved armorial bookplate of Thomas Munro, an excellent copy preserved in a cloth box. FIRST EDITION. The first important English work on political economy. James Steuart (1712-1780) is represented as someone who produced a systematic treatment of economics, but in pre-Physiocratic form. Although his book was first published in 1767, the main elements of the argument were established in isolation in Germany in the late 1750's. David Hume is reported as being critical of the 'form and style' of the work but 'exceedingly pleased' with it as an 'ingenious performance' when he looked it over in manuscript in 1766. Whilst Steuart's interventionist economic principles provoked Adam Smith to refute them in The Wealth of Nations, recent commentary has emphasized the continuity in Scottish economic thought from David Hume to James Steuart to Adam Smith. He gradually enjoyed some attention from the members of the German Historical School in the 19th Century. More recently he has been hailed as a forerunner of the 'economics of control' and the concept of development planning.Steuart also wrote an important but rarely found work on Indian currency The Principles of Money applied to the present state of the coin of Bengal 1772.

Par C.F, Julliot, Marchand? 80 pp., one leaf of approbation. [Paris: Didot, 1767]. The catalogue of the art collections of one of France's greatest collectors, the patron and close friend of Antoine Watteau. Jullienne (1686-1766), supported many contemporary artists, and his relationship with Watteau represents "a key moment in the development of French 18th-century painting and patronage?His strong interest in French art and Netherlandish painting, led the way for a new generation of rich Parisian collectors who had only loose connections with the French court. As a result, the 18th century saw the establishment of a new cultural avant-garde."-"Esprit et Vérité: Watteau and His Circle," exhibition description on the Wallace collection website. Jullienne also served as editor and agent for Watteau's works after the artist's premature death and worked tirelessly to preserve his legacy. At his own expense, he produced engravings of 450 of Watteau's works, a mission which lasted 27 years and went through 15 engravers (16, including Jullienne, himself an amateur draughtsman, who executed 17 reproductions). This resulted in the famous four volume Receuil Jullienne, a lavish publication which secured Watteau's memory for posterity. These catalogues (1679 lots in total), priced throughout in a contemporary hand with some interesting annotations, describe Jullienne's enormous collection of Dutch, French and Italian art, along with numerous antiquities (detailed in the second catalogue). The first work features the collector's personal collection of Watteau (lots 250-61 & 769-827) and celebrated Dutch paintings by Van Dyck, Teniers, and Rubens. This catalogue also has an index of artists. On the final page of the second catalogue, the owner has tabulated the totals for both days. The sale netted 391,676 livres. Very good copy.

         La défense de mon oncle [contre ses infâmes persécuteurs]. Recueil de placets et mémoires

      s.l.n.d. [1767, Hollande ?] - s.l.n.d. [1767, Hollande ?] 136 pages y compris le faux-titre (qui sert de titre), l'avertissement essentiel ou inutile (3 pages) et la table à la fin (4 pages). Relié à la suite : [Michielsen ?] Recueil des requêtes, placets et mémoires, les plus intéressants, que l'on présenta à Sa Majesté Impériale Joseph II, durant le Voyage qu'il fit dans ses Pays-Bas en 1781. Sa Majesté Impériale Joseph II à fait insérer dans ce recueil L'Apocalypse du Bien Heureux Jean, Apôtre de la Philosophie : Songe Philosophique Extraordinaire, que les Censeurs Ecclésiastiques, de Pays-Bas, n'avaient pas laissé imprimer. A Vienne en Autriche, de l'imprimerie de la Cour, 1782. [?] (6)-83 pages. 2 ouvrages reliés ensemble en 1 volume demi-maroquin noir à grain long, dos lisse orné, plats de papier marbré bleu, doublures et gardes blanches (reliure anglais du début du XIXe siècle). La dernière page (136) du premier ouvrage est légèrement salie, sinon bel intérieur très frais. Beau papier bien blanc. Reliure en très bon état avec quelques petites usures et frottements (plats), coiffe supérieure légèrement usée (peu visible). Le premier ouvrage, La défense de mon oncle [contre ses infâmes persécuteurs] est ici dans une édition qui reproduit le texte du tout premier tirage avec une fidélité exemplaire, comme le souligne José-Michel Moureaux dans son étude des différentes éditions de ce texte de Voltaire. On y relève à peine une demi douzaine de variantes légères, écrit-il, et pratiquement pas de coquilles. Cette édition faite avec des caractères hollandais n'es pas parisienne. Il est également impossible qu'elle ait été exécutée en province. Moureaux conclut donc à "une édition hollandaise, à la rigueur anglaise". Moureaux précise encore que ce tirage ne figurait pas dans la bibliothèque de Voltaire. Dans cette édition classifiée "C" par Moureaux, l'avertissement est présent et intégré à la pagination, tout comme la table qu'on trouve à la fin. Ce livre a remporté tout de suite un vif succès. Grimm en a entretenu ses lecteurs dès le 15 juillet 1767 (les premiers exemplaires apparaissent à la fin du mois de juin) avec un enthousiasme débordant : " (.) l'on étouffe de rire à chaque page. Il est impossible de rien lire de plus gai, de plus fou, de plus sage, de plus érudit, de plus philosophique, de plus profond, de plus puissant que cette Défense, et il faut convenir qu'un jeune homme de soixante treize ans comme neveu, sujet à ces saillies de jeunesse, est un rare phénomène." (Correspondance littéraire tome VII, p. 367, cité par Moureaux). "Cet ouvrage est une plaisanterie particulièrement dirigée contre un M. Larcher, auteur obscur d'un prétendu Supplément à la Philosophie de l'Histoire [.] M. de Voltaire, dont l'amour-propre s'égratigne facilement, accommode de toutes pièces ce piteux adversaire. Il enveloppe aussi dans cette facétie Fréron et autres personnages, plastrons ordinaires de ses railleries. On ne peut refuser à cet écrit beaucoup de gaîté et même le feu de la jeunesse." (Bachaumont, 24 juillet 1767). On trouve dans cette défense des chapitres aussi curieux que : de la providence - l'apologie des dames de Babilone - de l'alcoran - des romains - de la sodomie - de l'inceste - de la bestialité et du bouc du sabbath - d'Abraham et de Ninon de Lenclos - du temple de Tyr - des Chinois - de l'Inde et du Vedam - que les juifs haïssaient toutes les nations - de Warburton (pamphlet ajouté ici) - des hommes de différentes couleurs, etc. Référence : J.-M. Moureaux, La défense de mon oncle, édition critique, Genève, Slatkine, 1978. Le second ouvrage, Recueil de requêtes etc., serait l'oeuvre (entre autres) d'un certain Michielsen, employé au Comité de la Caisse de Religion, "qui présenta une série de requêtes soit disant présentées à l'empereur Joseph II lors de son voyage aux Pays-Bas. En vérité, il s'agissait de requêtes fictives et satiriques. Dans un style à la fois d'une grande finesse, plein d'allusions et de virulence, l'auteur s'attaqua au clergé, [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Du transport, de la conversation et de la force des bois.

      Paris Delatour 1767 - (26,5 x 20,5 cm). XXXII, 556 S. Mit gestochener Kopfvignette und 27 gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Moderner Halbpergamentband im Stil der Zeit. Einzige Ausgabe dieses umfassenden Werkes über alle Aspekte der Holzverarbeitung und Verwendung. Behandelt werden Transport, Lagerung und künstliche Trocknung des Holzes sowie dessen Verwendung im Schiffsbau. Kapitel 5 behandelt die Festigkeit von ganzen und zusammengesetzten Balken. - Duhamel du Monceau (1700-1782) gilt als Begründer der Forstbotanik, insbesondere der Forstnutzung und der biologischen Holzforschung. "But other interests, primarily botany and agronomy, occupied most of his remaining working life. One of these interests was in the cultivation and use of timber. and in 1732 he was appointed 'inspecteur général de la marine', with the understanding that his duties would include supervising the timber to be used in the French navy. His experiences in this position led to several studies published in the 1740's on the structural properties of wood and on management of tree stands. Duhamel consciously wrote for an audience of technicians rather than scientists" (DSB). - Die Tafeln mit detaillierter Darstellung zu Transport, Lagerung, Trocknung und Verarbeitung des Holzes sowie zum Schiffsbau und zur Festigkeitsprüfung. - Exlibris. Vereinzelt minimal stockfleckig, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 4, 223; Poggendorff I, 618 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         A Voyage round the World, In His Majesty's ship The Dolphin, Commanded by the Honourable Commodore Byron. In which is Contained, A faithful Account of several Places, People, Plants, Animals, &c. seen on the Voyage:

      London: J Newbery, F Newbery, 1767 A fair copy of the 1st edition of Commodore Byron's circumnavigation of the globe. With black and white frontispiece and 2 further plates. The title page states that it was written 'by an Officer on Board the said Ship' This was originally thought to have been Byron himself, but it is more recently being assigned to Charles Clerke, who was a Mid-Shipman on the voyage - and later sailed with James Cook. Byron was asked to explore the S Atlantic, in the hope of finding a base for British interests, but this was kept secret to avoid conflict with Spanish authorities who controlled the S American mainland. He crossed the Atlantic in winter 1764. The account provoked considerable interest, particularly because of its desciption of a giant people in Patagonia. The book describes a meeting in which Commodore Byron wanted to hand out 'trinkets - 'The method he made use of to facilitate the distribution of them, was by making the Indians sit down on the ground, that he might put the strings of beads, &c. round their necks, and such was their extraordinary size, that in this situation they were almost as high as the Commodore when standing.' This copy is bound with the original marbled boards and a new spine with gilt-lined raised bands and title label. There is scuffing and wear to the boards but the binding is clean and sound. Internally the original endpapers are present with repair. Contents: frontispiece (repaired with some loss); title page with ink signature to top (some browning and loss to side edge); preface 2pp (similar browning and side edge loss); text pp 1-181 with decorative headpiece and initial capital and 2 plates; Appendix with errata pp 181-186; Finis; advertisement 2pp (damage to bottom corner. Overall the contents are in very good clean condition, with light toning to paper and the occasional mark.

         SINGAPORE / MALAYSIA / STRAITS OF MALACCA / SUMATRA: A CHART OF THE SEAS BETWEEN THE STRAITS OF BANCA AND PO. TIMON: WITH THE EASTERN PART OF THE STRAITS OF MALACCA.

      London, . 1767 - Copper engraving with modern outline colour colour (Very Good, hardly noticeable age-toned with strong engraving impression and wide blank margins, with modern colour but tastefully executed; just a small area of restoration without loss in upper centre blank margin), 63 x 49 cm (24.8 x 19.3 inches). Extremely Rare – the first state of the William Herbert’s chart of the Malacca-Singapore navigation, the first broadly accurate British sea chart of Asia’s busiest shipping lane, marking a milestone in the revival of hydrography sponsored by the East India Company, and a key chart used during the ascendency of British economic and political power in Southeast Asia and the Far East. - William Herbert’s chart of the Malacca-Singapore navigation is perhaps the rarest of all the seminal sea charts focussing on Asia’s busiest shipping lane, and tends to be missing from even the finest map collections of the region. Importantly, it is a key work in the revival of hydrography sponsored by the British East India Company (EIC), being the first British printed chart to feature a broadly accurate and practically useful depiction of the passage through the Singapore Strait. The chart is a manifestation of Britain’s recent large-scale commercial expansion into Southeast Asia and the Far East, and features fresh details supplied by the crews of named British ships. The chart, present here in the first state (of 3), initially appeared within the third edition of Herbert’s The New Directory of the East Indies (1767), an incredibly rare atlas of Asian & African navigation that was sponsored by the EIC. The chart is extremely rare on the market; the last sales record we can trace dates from 1991. The fact that Herbert’s chart is not better known today is due to its rarity and the patchy modern scholarship on the maritime mapping of Southeast Asia. In reality, Herbert’s charts were critical tools used to affect the rise of Britain’s power in Southeast Asia and the Far East during the second half of the 18th Century. The present chart was particularly important, given the paramount role that the Malacca and Singapore straits played in British commercial and political interests.

      1767 - fort in-4, XIII-[3]-739-[3] Brest, Romain Malassis, Paris, Durand, 1767, , fort in-4, XIII-[3]-739-[3] pp, 67 pl, veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, tranches marbrées, 67 planches dépliantes représentant, entre autres, des instruments d'optique. Cette traduction de Duval-Leroy, professeur de mathématiques à l'école d'artillerie de Brest, est enrichie de Remarques nouvelles sur les lunettes achromatiques & d'une description de l'héliostat. Elle a paru simultanément à une autre traduction française, celle du Père Pézenas d'Avignon. L'ouvrage est divisé en trois parties : Exposition de l'optique ; L'optique traitée à l'aide de la géométrie et du calcul ; Manière de tailler les verres et les miroirs des télescopes et description des instruments d'optique. Robert Smith publia son Compleat System of Opticks pour la première fois en 1738 : il s'agit sans doute du traité d'optique qui influença le plus ses contemporains ; il connut des traductions en français, en allemand et en néerlandais. Lalande le cite en tant que "grand et important traité". Il valut, à son auteur, le surnom de "Old Focus". Robert Smith (1689-1768), condisciple et cousin de Cotes, fut un mathématicien anglais et théoricien de la musique. Il contribua largement à répandre les théories de Newton sur la lumière ; il fut en charge de la chaire de physique à l'université de Cambridge. Un coin usé. Exemplaire très frais. Lalande p. 497 ; Blake, p. 422. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         A Voyage round the World, In His Majesty's ship The Dolphin, Commanded by the Honourable Commodore Byron. In which is Contained, A faithful Account of several Places, People, Plants, Animals, &c. seen on the Voyage:

      J Newbery, F Newbery, London 1767 - A fair copy of the 1st edition of Commodore Byron's circumnavigation of the globe. With black and white frontispiece and 2 further plates. The title page states that it was written 'by an Officer on Board the said Ship' This was originally thought to have been Byron himself, but it is more recently being assigned to Charles Clerke, who was a Mid-Shipman on the voyage - and later sailed with James Cook. Byron was asked to explore the S Atlantic, in the hope of finding a base for British interests, but this was kept secret to avoid conflict with Spanish authorities who controlled the S American mainland. He crossed the Atlantic in winter 1764. The account provoked considerable interest, particularly because of its desciption of a giant people in Patagonia. The book describes a meeting in which Commodore Byron wanted to hand out 'trinkets - 'The method he made use of to facilitate the distribution of them, was by making the Indians sit down on the ground, that he might put the strings of beads, &c. round their necks, and such was their extraordinary size, that in this situation they were almost as high as the Commodore when standing.' This copy is bound with the original marbled boards and a new spine with gilt-lined raised bands and title label. There is scuffing and wear to the boards but the binding is clean and sound. Internally the original endpapers are present with repair. Contents: frontispiece (repaired with some loss); title page with ink signature to top (some browning and loss to side edge); preface 2pp (similar browning and side edge loss); text pp 1-181 with decorative headpiece and initial capital and 2 plates; Appendix with errata pp 181-186; Finis; advertisement 2pp (damage to bottom corner. Overall the contents are in very good clean condition, with light toning to paper and the occasional mark. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         A New Pocket Dictionary of the French and English Languages.

      1767 - In Two Parts. I. French and English. II. English and French. Containing all words of general use, and authorized by the best writers. As also distinguishing the several parts of speech, with the gender of the nouns in the French language. To which are added, the accents of the English words for the use of Foreigners, and an alphabetical list of the most common Christian names, with their most usual abbreviations. Carefully compiled from the most approved Dictionaries, French and English, particularly from the Royal Academy of Paris. First Edition. Bound in Two Volumes. Square 12mo (113x119 mm). [468] pp., with the final advertisement leaf. Foxed and a little browned in places throughout, upper and lower edges closely cropped (touching the headlines, catch-words, pagination and signatures but not obscuring the text), single neat pencil note to E5, small ink blot to H4 (touching two lines of text), corner of S3 folded, small chip in the blank lower inner margin of T1-U2, title-page of the second volume heavily stained around the edges by the turn-ins, small tear to blank fore-margin of g1, paper flaw to the lower blank edge of s4, small closed tear to the upper edge of the advertisement leaf x6 (touching, but not obscuring, four lines of text), c.12 lines of manuscript notes concerning grammar on the final blank leaf of the second volume. Contemporary calf, covers ruled in blind, second volume with the remains of a clasp, manuscript lettering to the upper cover of each volume ?Eng Fr? and ?Fr Eng? (heavily worn and rubbed, headcaps torn away, corners bumped, joints of the first volume cracked but holding and with a couple of pieces torn from the spine). London: for Edward and Charles Dilly, Alston XII 709. Rare. ESTC records BL, Bodley and St Andrews [this is not in the online catalogue and may be a confusion with Aberdeen] only in the U.K.; Indiana State (in the Cordell Dictionary collection) only in the USA. WorldCat adds a copy at Aberdeen University. Allston adds four copies in European libraries (including the Bibliotheque Nationale). Thomas Nugent?s (c.1700-1772) New Pocket Dictionary - ?for the use of Schools and private Gentlemen? - was published by Charles and Edward Dilly on Thursday 13th August 1767 prices at 3s ?bound and clasped? (see the advertisement in the London Evening Post). Nugent explains the advantage of this compact dictionary in his preface: ?by the smallness of its size the following repository of words is become portable to Learners of both Languages [English and French], by which means they can have an easier recourse to it, so often as anything occurs in conversation or reading, with which they are unacquainted. The smallness of the size renders it also of easy purchase, and proper on that accounts in Schools, where Dictionaries of large bulk an expense are become a burden? (A2r). On the composition of the dictionary he notes that, ?recourse has been had to the best Dictionaries, French and English, particularly to that of the Royal Academy, which is justly looked upon as the Standard of the French tongue; yet we have take the liberty to insert a few words not adopted by that learned body, where the particular energy of force of expression, seemed to justify the use (A2v). Nugent?s dictionary was repeatedly re-printed into the 20th-century (Alston records a fiftieth edition in 1882 and a London edition of 1990). All of the early editions are scarce. The first edition is also the only edition which is the sole product of Thomas Nugent ? the following 1770 Dublin edition is ?corrected and greatly improved by John Astruc? and most of the subsequent editions are edited by J. S. Charrier, French Master to the Royal Academy Portsmouth, who added a supplement of naval and military terms. This copy is particularly interesting as the English/French volume appears to be in the ?clasped? binding which is mentioned in the London Evening Post advertisement; the other volume though has never had a clasp.

Il risultato fu la migliore e più ampia opera illustrata di ornitologia realizzata fino ad allora. Si tratta della tavola numero XVII dell'opera. Ottime condizioni, in passe-partout.
