        A View of the Rise, Progress, and Present State of the English Government in Bengal: Including a reply to misrepresentations of Mr. Bolts, and other writers.

      London: Printed for J. Nourse, Brotherton and Sewell, G. Robinson, and T. Evans, 1772 - Quarto (264 x 205 mm). Contemporary quarter calf, red label lettered in gilt and black label with gilt-stamped deer ornament to spine, gilt floral motifs to compartments of spine, marbled sides, white corners. Small ink gift inscription to pastedown, some shaved contemporary annotations. Joints starting at foot, covers rubbed, extremities worn. A very good copy. First edition. Harry Verelst (1734–1785) succeeded Robert Clive as Governor of Bengal in 1767 and held the post until his resignation in December 1769. Verelst's policy with regard to Bengal was to maintain Clive's dual system, upholding the native government under East India Company control rather than fully asserting British sovereignty. Verelst found he lacked the authority of Clive, and under his governorship, and after his return to Britain, he found that his and Clive's governance of the province was being openly criticised. The most notable attack was by William Bolts, a junior merchant in the East India Company, who publicly denounced both Clive and Verelst and their supposedly venal governments in his 1772 work Considerations on Indian Affairs. The present work was Verelst's attempt to counter Bolts and other critics' writings and to give a defence of his and Clive's administrations, alongside affirming the necessity of the dual system and the inappropriateness of directly applying British laws. The work has a lengthy appendix of government papers and letters which the author believed vindicated his claims. With the bookplate of James Amyatt (1734–1813), Captain in the East India Company, free merchant in India, and Member of Parliament for Southampton from 1774 to 1806.

        La Salameide poemetto giocoso con le note

      Appresso Guglielmo Zerletti, 1772. In 8vo (cm 21,5); cartonato coevo colorato (minime mancanze e spellature); antiporta incisa, pp. (10), cxxxv, (3). Titolo inciso con vignetta in rame al centro. Vignetta in rame all'inizio del primo canto. Un po' sciolto, insignificante macchia al margine esterno delle ultime carte, ma OTTIMA COPIA intonsa con barbe.EDIZIONE ORIGINALE di uno dei più riusciti poemetti di argomento gastronomico della letteratura italiana. "Fra i poemi Apiciani in genere giocosi è questo uno dei più leggiadri e faceti che si abbia la lingua nostra; la bizzarra invenzione di esso, l'elegante ed evidente modo di raccontare e descrivere, la forbitezza e proprietà della dizione, il fino lepore dovunque sparso, e la peregrina erudizione onde è infiorato, e che più opportunamente per via di note si manifesta, ne rendono la lettura piacevole oltre modo, come quella di presso che tutte le altre poesie bernesche dell'autore, per le quali aveva non comune facilità e genio" (A. Lombardi, Storia della letteratura italiana nel secolo XVIII, Modena, 1829, p. 345). Il nome dell'autore si deduce dal divertente avviso ai lettori dello stampatore. Il poema si compone di quattro canti, in cui sono elogiati tutti i prodotti del porco, dal prosciutto alla porchetta, dalla braciola al sanguinaccio, dai tomacelli ("si fanno col fegato di porco cotto lesso, poi gratugiato, e impastato con uova, cacio, ed altro ec. finalmente ridotto in pallottole involte nella rete, o sia omento del porco, si cuoce in padella, o teglia", pp. CXIII-IV) al cotechino, dal salame di fegato alla salsiccia.Così esordiscono le note: "Un soldato Alemano mal sapendo esprimere in nostra lingua il salame; dal vederlo pendente da una trave e da una pertica, lo credette un frutto così secco col suo ramo; e però disse di voler del frutto di quell'albero secco. Il fatto è vero" (p. XCI). Il Frizzi, ferrarese, fu intimo amico del Tiraboschi. Occupò diverse cariche politico-amministrative nella sua città , in cui fondò fra l'altro l'Accademia degli Argonauti. Avendo accesso agli archivi comunali, dopo anni di ricerche pubblicò le Memorie per la Storia di Ferrara, la fino ad allora più importante storia di Ferrara dalle origini al 1598 (E. De Tipaldo, Biografia degli Italiani illustri, Venezia, 1868, vol. IV, pp. 419-420). G. Morazzoni, Il libro illustrato veneziano del Settecento, Milano, 1943, p. 232. O. Bagnasco a cura di, Catalogo del fondo italiano e latino delle opere di gastronomia sec. XIV-XIX, Sorengo, 1994, nr. 852 Simon, 1342. Westbury, p. 197..

        A Vindication of the Government of New-England Churches [bound with] The Churches Quarrel Espoused [bound with] A Platform of Church Discipline [bound with] A Confession of Faith

      Boston: John Boyles, 1772. 16mo, 217 pp (continuously paged) + subscribers list. Contemporary full calf binding. A good copy: front joint partially cracked, lacking free endpapers; text clean and binding sound. Wise, a Congregational minister and political activist, was known for his colorful rhetoric and vigorous defense of the right of individual congregations to self-governance -- which he linked directly to political autonomy. His eloquent defense of American liberty made his most influential pamphlets, the Churches Quarrel (first published in 1710) and A Vindication (first published 1717) particularly appealing to readers in 1772 as the colonial crisis worsened. Grolier American 100 #7 (referring to the first edition of the Vindication); Sabin 104901; Howes W-595.

        Oeuvres du Comte Algarotti. Traduit de l'Italien. [8 volumes in 7].

      Berlin:: G. J. Decker, 1772., 1772. 8 books bound in 7 volumes. Small 8vo. xxx, 398, [2]; 476, [4]; 536, [2]; 419, [3]; 494, [2]; 360, [2]; 390, [xii], 176 pp. Two engraved frontispieces (vols. I & VIII), title vignettes, titles printed in red and black, headpieces; some browning. Original brown blind- and gilt-stamped mottled calf; light wear to spine ends, vol. VII-VIII rear joint with kozo repair. Very handsome set. FRENCH EDITION, translated from the Italian by Belletier, with the very rare eighth volume being the biography of the author. Algarotti was every much the popularizer and educator to the public (especially women). An excellent example is his work, Neutonianismo per le dame, ("Newtonism for Ladies"), issued in 1737, which gave a non-mathematical explanation of Newton's philosophy of science, in particular his optics, a history of physics, an explanation of the hypothesis of Descartes on the nature of light and colors. He continued with an exposition on the general principles of optics, the eye and vision, and treatments of Descartes and the French Cartesian Nicolas Malebranche (1638-1715) on the nature of light and colors. Vol. I, Chap. III & IV, are focused on the system of Newton's optics. Chap. V deals with the principles of universal attraction and its application to optical science. Chap. VI contains refutations on the theory of colors and Newton's theories. With the conclusion of vol. I he adds an explanation of the function of the eyes & vision, being that what ones sees is reversed in the brain and how seeing any object is a function of two eyes witnessing a single object. He finishes vol. I with a letter to Fontenelle and the subject of his own treatise on Newtonism for Ladies. / Cartee dialogue, ou l'on explique comment nous voyons droits les objets qui dans notre oeil se peignent renverses; & comment nous ne voyons qu'un objet, quoiqu'il s'en peigne deux images dans nos yeux. / Count Francesco Algarotti (1712-1764), Venetian polymath, philosopher, poet, essayist, anglophile, art critic and art collector. He was "one of the first Esprits cavaliers of the age," a man of broad knowledge, an expert in Newtonianism, architecture and music and a friend of most of the leading authors of his times: Voltaire, Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, Marquis d'Argens, Pierre-Louis de Maupertuis and the atheist Julien Offray de La Mettrie. Lord Chesterfield, Thomas Gray, George Lyttelton, Thomas Hollis, Metastasio, Benedict XIV and Heinrich von Bruhl were among his correspondents. / Contents: [1] Dialogues sur l'optique de Newton.

        A View of the Rise, Progress, and Present State of the English Government in Bengal:

      London: Printed for J. Nourse, Brotherton and Sewell, G. Robinson, and T. Evans,, 1772. Including a reply to misrepresentations of Mr. Bolts, and other writers. Quarto (264 x 205 mm). Contemporary quarter calf, red label lettered in gilt and black label with gilt-stamped deer ornament to spine, gilt floral motifs to compartments of spine, marbled sides, white corners. Small ink gift inscription to pastedown, some shaved contemporary annotations. Joints starting at foot, covers rubbed, extremities worn. A very good copy. First edition. Harry Verelst (1734–1785) succeeded Robert Clive as Governor of Bengal in 1767 and held the post until his resignation in December 1769. Verelst's policy with regard to Bengal was to maintain Clive's dual system, upholding the native government under East India Company control rather than fully asserting British sovereignty. Verelst found he lacked the authority of Clive, and under his governorship, and after his return to Britain, he found that his and Clive's governance of the province was being openly criticised. The most notable attack was by William Bolts, a junior merchant in the East India Company, who publicly denounced both Clive and Verelst and their supposedly venal governments in his 1772 work Considerations on Indian Affairs. The present work was Verelst's attempt to counter Bolts and other critics' writings and to give a defence of his and Clive's administrations, alongside affirming the necessity of the dual system and the inappropriateness of directly applying British laws. The work has a lengthy appendix of government papers and letters which the author believed vindicated his claims. With the bookplate of James Amyatt (1734–1813), Captain in the East India Company, free merchant in India, and Member of Parliament for Southampton from 1774 to 1806.

        Beschreibung von Arabien. Aus eigenen Beobachtungen und im Lande selbst gesammelten Nachrichten abgefasset.

      Copenhagen: Nicolaus Möller 1772. With titlevignette, vignette, 24 copperplates, genealogical table and 1 large folding map. XLVII + [3] + 431 + [1] pp. Well-preserved copy with wide margin and yellow edges bound in contemporary halfleather with coloured label and golddecorations on spine. Binding weakly marked of use. * Carsten Niebuhr was a student at the University of Göttingen. Professor J.H. Michaëlis, employed there, recommended Niebuhr to J.H.E. Bernstorff who in cooporation with the Danish government was planning an expedition to Arabia. Michaëlis regarded Niebuhr as very qualified for the task of participating as astronomer and natural historian. On the 7th of January 1761 the members of the expedition took off. They included Niebuhr, the philologist F.V. von Haven, the Swedish natural scientist Peter Forskål, the doctor C.C. Kramer and the engraver Baurenfeind. The first stop was Istanbul where they stayed for a long while before sailing to Alexandria where they stayed for nearly one year. During the stay in Egypt they made important archeologic, geographic and natural historic investigations there and on Sinai. On the 29th December 1762 they arrived in Djedda. In May 1763 F.V. von Haven and Peter Forskål died from exhaustion caused by travel complications and the unfamiliar climate. Niebuhr became leader of the expedition. During the following eight months Niebuhr traveled through Yemen, being the first European in that area. In order to survive and to protect the collected items, the party had to leave Mekka and move on to Bombay. Baurenfeind died on the way and Kramer soon after. After 14 months in Bombay Niebuhr started his journey back. On the way he visited the ruined town Persepolis where he made drawings of the most important relics and copied cuneiforms. In November he finally reached Denmark, being the only surviving member of the Arabic expedition. His copied cuneiforms were studied by Rasmus Rask and other philologists when deciphering the cuneiform alphabet.

The uncommon second edition of Smollett's masterpiece, following the first of 1771; Copac and OCLC cite British Library, Edinburgh, Scotland, Oxford, National Trust (among British and Irish institutional libraries) and some 20 copies worldwide. Humphry Clinker "took Smollett's reputation to new heights" (ODNB) and is one of the great comic novels in the language. A very pretty set.
