         Traité de la construction théorique et pratique du scaphandre, ou du bateau de l'homme.

      Paris (Simon für) Debure und den Verfasser 1775 - (17 x 11 cm). XLVIII, 328 (6) S. Mit 4 nummerierten Kupfern auf 2 mehrfach gefalteten Tafeln. Dekorativer Lederband der Zeit mit reicher Rückenvergoldung. Erste Ausgabe. - Der französische Mathematiker und Erfinder La Chapelle (1710-1792), seit 1747 Mitglied der Royal Society und einer der Hauptautoren zur "Encyclopédie" für den Bereich Mathematik, erlangte besondere Bekanntheit durch seine Versuche mit einer von ihm selbst erfundenen Rettungs- und Schwimmweste aus Kork, die selbst von der Akademie der Wissenschaften in Paris anerkannt wurde. Mit ihr sprang er vor zahlreichen Zuschauern in die Seine, wo er an der Oberfläche treibend aß, trank, schnupfte und eine Pistole abfeuerte. In vorliegendem Werk beschreibt er ihre Anfertigung und ihren Gebrauch, auch zum Schutz vor dem Ertrinken Schiffbrüchiger. Besonders interessant ist die eingehende Auseinandersetzung mit Konkurrenzkonstruktionen. Die Kupfer zeigen die Weste, ihre Einzelteile und Personen, die sie benutzen. - Die ersten beiden Blätter gering gebräunt und etwas leimschattig, sonst nahezu fleckenfrei. Einband leicht berieben und bestoßen, insgesamt wohlerhalten. - Poggendorff I, 1338 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Traktat Vecnago mira i Druzby, Zakljucennij mezdu Imperiej Vserossijskago i Ottomanskago Portoju

      1775 - [Treaty of lasting Peace and Friendship between the Russian Empire and the Ottoman Porte.]First edition. Folio. Period style half crimson morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt. [ii], 12pp. Moscow, A very good copy of this rare treaty of Kucuk Kaynarca, which is a village near Silistria on the Danube. ?The treaty was a complex document, but it dealt with three major issues. It was first and foremost a political and territorial settlement affecting the Danubian Principalities, the Crimean and other Tartars, and the Caucasus the zones of the Russo-Turkish frontier west, north, and east of the Black Sea. It was in a very real sense the first partition of the Ottoman Empire by the Russians. The treaty proclaimed the existence of a Tartar nation consisting of the Crimean khanate; the Budzhak, Edisan, and other hordes between Dniepr and the peninsula; and the Kuban Horde between the Eia and the Kuban. The treaty also took up the cause of the Orthodox subjects of the Ottoman Empire; and, finally, it opened up the question of Russian navigation in the Black Sea and passage through the straits.? John P. LeDonne; The Russian Empire and the world, 1700-1917 (1997) pp105-7.No copies located on OCLC. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         The royal English dictionary: or, a treasury of the English language . to which is prefixed a comprehensive grammar of the English tongue . The fifth edition, improved.

      printed for L. Hawes, and Co. [et al.], London 1775 - Fifth, and last edition, 8vo, pp. viii, [3]-24 plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; full contemporary reversed calf with blindstamped border, red morocco label on spine; spine ends chipped, red morocco label worn; a good, sound copy, with with the approbation leaf in which George III (to whom the book is dedicated) grants Fenning a license to print his dictionary for a period of 14 years. Little is known of Fenning. He was a compiler of several school texts, including an arithmetic, a geography, and a speller, the last of which had notable popularity in America before Webster. Webster himself was no doubt well acquainted with Fenning's speller, which in London made a 71st edition in 1823. This dictionary contains terms used in mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, architecture, printing, natural history and navigation, with "each word followed by an initial letter to denote the part of speech" --the first time I believe in a dictionary. A competent, trustworthy dictionary on "so extensive a plan as to unite the different excellencies of all other English dictionaries." Alston V, 231. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Sur les finances. Ouvrage posthume de Pierre André ******, fils d'un bon laboureur, mis au jour par Mr.*, curé D*.

      Londres 1775 - Royal octavo. Pp. viii, 293. Charming woodcut device to title, end-piece to the Préface, and a large head-piece to the first page. Plus folding engraved grid-map of France, incorporating title within elaborate cartouche, and 4 other folding tables, all printed on deckle-edged rug paper. Hardcover, bound in recent full olive-green calf, gilt-stamped lettering to spine, faint armorial stamp to title. Excellent wide-margined, untrimmed deckle-edged copy, preserved in the original state. Overall in fine condition, crisp folding plates. ~ First edition. Based on a much quoted manuscript note in the Library of Congress' copy ("l'on croit que cette sanglante diatribe des fermiers généraux a été composée, imprimée et répandue sous les auspices du ministère actuel [celui de Turgot & Malesherbes]") the book is often attributed to Anne-Robert-Jacques Turgot, Baron de l'Aulne (1727-1781), controller-general of France under Louis XVI. However, the attribution to Turgot is doubtful if not false. (For that matter see: Quérard: La France littéraire. Paris, Bibliothèque National, Catalogue géneral des livres imprimés; and also: Higgs, H. Bibliography of economics, 6403.) Also the imprint is false, and the book was probably printed in Paris or Amsterdam (see British Library Catalogue entry). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         The Hon.ble John Hancock. of Boston in New-England; President of the American Congress. Done from an original picture painted by Littleford

      C. Shepherd, London 1775 - Mezzotint portrait. Wide margins. Minor creases. A British portrait of one of the leading American Revolutionary war leaders. Public curiosity for prints of Revolutionary heroes was not limited to America but spread to the English and European print shops, where an inquisitive audience clamored for a glimpse of the key figures of the war. London and Augsburg publishers, using the names C. Shepard, Thomas Hart, and John Morris, issued a series of mezzotints of the officers of the American Revolution. Public interest reached such a frenzy that European printmakers published fictitious portraits before they had accurate likenesses of the sitters, often using old plates and simply changing the name of the sitter. This porthole portrait of Hancock may have been based on a Copley painted portrait, though it claims to be after "Littleford". Littleford is thought to have been a fictitious portraitist and the resemblance to Hancock is somewhat remote. Nevertheless, the figure is commanding and a gentleman, such as might well be President of the Continental Congress. As Fowble noted: "As president of the Continental Congress in 1775, Hancock was newsworthy in both London and the colonies, and he was a tailor-made subject for print publishers. Some entrepreneurs, like Shelpherd in his anxiety to get the first prints on the street, were willing to supplement truth with a generous portion of fiction."

         De l'esprit du gouvernement économique

      Paris: Debure,, 1775. Octavo (198 x 121 mm). Contemporary half vellum, title hand written to spine in ink, brown speckled boards, red sprinkled edges. Engraved head- and tailpieces. Early ownership label to front pastedown. Extremities rubbed, spine ends bumped, boards lightly scuffed, front pastedown a little stripped and discoloured from removal of bookplate, front hinge cracked but firm, minor loss to leaf R3 not affecting text, overall a bright, clean copy. First edition of the principal work of the French economist Paul Boesnier de l'Orme (1724–1793), "one of the most systematic and comprehensive expositions of economics of its period" (Higgs). This copy has the imprint of Debure, as do the Mattioli and Sraffa copies, but some have the imprint of Delalaine (no priority established). It is both institutionally and commercially scarce as the book was "suppressed because it attacked the Fermieres Généraux" (Sraffa Library). Copac locates just one copy with the Debure imprint in British and Irish institutional libraries (Cambridge), and OCLC adds six more worldwide.

         POEMS

      London: Thomas Evans, [1775]. A fine and very early printing of Shakespeare's Poems. A Large Copy. With a charming vignette portrait of Shakespeare on the title-page from an engraving by Alexander Bannerman. Small 8vo, in handsome full chocolate crushed morocco, the spine with gilt chain flat bands creating compartments with central gilt tooled ornaments, one compartment gilt lettered, board edges gilt hatched, in a slipcase of complimentary brown cloth-covered boards with matching morocco tips. viii, 250pp. A fine copy, the text especially clean and fresh, the 20th century binding pristine and as new, the slipcase fine as well. SCARCE AND A VERY ATTRACTIVE EDITION OF SHAKESPEARE'S POEMS, VERY POSSIBLY A LARGE PAPER COPY. According to Jaggard, "a large paper copy (the only one recorded), measuring 7-1/8 by 4-1/2 in., is in the writer's collection." Our copy measures 7 x 4-1/2 inches and might perhaps qualify as a large-paper copy.) The book is printed in the same style as Capell's 1767-6 issue of the Works, and probably intended to be supplementary to it. The arrangement follows that of the 1640 edition, but in this case the index now names every poem. Jaggard speculates that the editor might have been E. Capell. Shakespeare's first published works were poems, starting with Venus and Adonis in 1593. A tragic-comedy of Venus, her unrequited love for Adonis, and Adonis's tragic death while hunting a boar. In the Rape of Lucrece, Shakespeare's second published work, the rape of a Roman noblewoman leads to suicide and the downfall of the Tarquin kings of Rome. "Poems on Several Occasions" finishes the volume. A collection of various subjects, dominated by Shakespeare's favorite poetic theme, poems of love. "Love's not times fool, tho' rosy lips and cheeksWithin his bending fickle's compass come:Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error, and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved." -The Picture of True Love

         The Duenna or Double Elopement, a Comic-Opera as Performed at the Theatre Royal in Covent Garden for the Voice, Harpsichord, or Violin

      C. and S. Thompson, London 1775 - First edition. Engraved title-page, engraved table of songs, 57 pp. engraved music. [4], 58 pp. Oblong 4to. Rare first edition of the score of Sheridan's The Duenna. Following the success of The Rivals, Sheridan engaged the help of his father-in-law, Thomas Linley, Sr, to score the libretto to his next major project, a three-act burlesque opera set in Seville and based loosely on the Spanish honor drama. The score is a mix of original compositions and melodies gathered from Italian opera and Scottish folk ballads (these melodies were harmonized by Linley's son, Thomas Linley, Jr). The Duenna premiered at Covent Garden on 21 November 1775 and was an immediate success, running for 75 shows in its first season. It was frequently revived through the 19th century, becoming one of the most successful English operas of its time. Byron praised it as "the best opera ever written." The score is printed here in reduced form for voice and accompaniment; no full printed score of the opera exists. Slip-song printings of the text of individual songs were issued in 1775, along with a gathering of the libretto text under the title Songs, Duets, & Trios. The libretto and dialogue were pirated in a Dublin edition in 1777 under the title The Governess and again in 1785 as The Duenna; the first authorized edition was finally published in 1794. In 1940 Prokofiev rescored the libretto as Betrothal in a Monastery.Rare: ABPC records no copies at auction, and ESTC locates 8 copies (4 at the Bodleian).

         Scilla in tempesta / Agli amici inglesi

      1775. "Incisione su rame non datata, firmata da Bernardino Rulli per il disegno e il primo strato e da Mariano Bovi per il testo. Si tratta di una delle iconografie più suggestive di Scilla, ripresa dal mare, con la cittadina tagliata dalla sommità del castello; come scrive Omero: ""Di Scilla lo scoglio va all'ampio cielo / Con cima acuta; e nebbia intorno il cuopre."". La veduta è popolata di personaggi, tra i quali il Minasi stesso e i disegnatori dell'opera. Nelle acque in tempesta anche una Nave Inglese intenta a ""schivare gli scolgi di qua e di là di Scilla, pieni di morte nera"". Minasi introduce una nuova tecnica: all'area della veduta è abbinata a margine della stampa una legenda, che costituisce una sorta di ""sintesi"" delle inchieste condotte e rappresentate da Antonio Minasi. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Opera rara e ricercata." "Copper engraving, signed by Bernardino Rollers for drawing and by Mariano Bovi for the text. It is one of the most impressive iconographies of Scilla, with the top of the castle that covers the town. The plate is populated with characters, including Minasi himself and the designers of that work. In stormy waters, even a British ship attempts to ""schivare gli scolgi di qua e di là di Scilla, pieni di morte nera"". Minasi introduces a new technique: the iconography is matched with a legend to the margin of the press, which is a sort of ""synthesis"" of the investigations conducted by Antonio Minasi. Very good proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, perfect condition. Rare."

         Leçons de physique expérimentale

      1775 - 6 vol. À Paris, chez Durand, 1775-1777, in-12, 6 vol, veau marbré, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièces de titre fauve, tomaisons havane, triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats, Portrait de l'abbé Nollet gravé en taille-douce et 116 planches dépliantes, gravées de même, représentant le matériel et les expériences de physique que l'auteur pratiquait devant ses visiteurs. Les exemplaires avec le portrait sont assez rares. Nollet, fut le vulgarisateur scientifique et en électricité le plus célèbre du XVIIIe siècle. Ses leçons publiques étaient les manifestations de ce genre les plus populaires de son époque. Grâce à des démonstrations soigneusement orchestrées avec des centaines d'instruments différents, Nollet parvenait à divertir son auditoire enthousiaste. Il fut le premier, en France, à réaliser des expériences avec la bouteille de Leyde et l'un des premiers à publier la relation existant entre la lumière et les étincelles électriques. À l'instar de son homologue méridional Bertholon, il traita de l'électricité du corps humain dans l'un de ses premiers ouvrages (publié en 1746). Ses théories sur l'électricité furent, dans l'ensemble, en contradiction avec la plupart des physiciens et philosophes de l'époque, dont Benjamin Franklin. Bel exemplaire. DSB, X, p. 145.

         Ausschneidebilder].[The Netherlands?], 28 January 1777 (some of the prints themselves: Augsburg, Martin Engelbrecht, [ca. 1750?]) 4to. A scrap album containing about 330 cut-out images from engraved prints, most neatly and uniformly coloured by a contemporary hand (probably for the publisher or publishers). Contemporary half roan sheepskin, with a heart-shaped paper label on the front board with the manuscript inscription, "J. Visscher" above the date (1 above 28, flanked by "17 . 77").

      - Piet J. Buijnsters, "Het Nederlandse 'scrapbook' 1775-1900", in: Antiek XXXI, pp. 50-58, at p. 52 ; WorldCat (2 albums of Engelbrecht’s "Aufschneidebilder",); cf. B.M. Stafford & F. Terpak, Devices of wonder, p. 336. A carefully and neatly assembled scrap album containing about 330 coloured, engraved images, each carefully cut out of a print. The images show people (including costume figures, caricatures and oriental figures), boats and ships, flowers, architectural views (including garden views, fountains and sculptures), theatre prints, birds, insects, Aesop illustrations and other items. They include a large image of a man on a ladder picking fruit from a tree, and a whaling scene with a man harpooning a spouting whale. The heart-shaped label with the name J. Visscher and date 28 January 1777, suggests that the album was assembled for Visscher's betrothal or marriage on that date. Buijnsters notes that 18th-century scrapbooks such as the present are very rare. The compilation of a scrapbook became a popular pastime, especially for young ladies, in the 19th century.Nearly all of the clippings come from Engelbrecht in Augsburg and Johann Christoph Schmidhammer in Nürnberg. Martin Engelbrecht (1684-1756) was an Augsburg engraver and print publisher. In 1719, 1729 and 1739 he received an imperial privilege for "illuminierte Lackier- und Ausschneidebilder" (coloured varnished images and cut-out images). These were intended to be cut out for constructing peep shows or miniature theatres as well as for pasting in scrap albums. From the collection of Piet Buijnsters & Leontine Smets. In the last image the man's right arm and the woman's right hand have been lost, but the album leaves and engraved cut-outs are otherwise in very good condition. The binding is slightly rubbed but still good.

         Battle of Bunker Hill

      , September 21, 1775. September 21, 1775. Newspaper, 4 pages, 10" x 15", printed at Harvard College for the period September 14 - September 21, 1775. Volume VIII, Number 373, belonging to Captain Eleazir Robbins and very likely signed by him on the first page above the headline. There is much content naming many of the important generals of the war, and activities in London, Lexington and Concord, Boston, Philadelphia, and at Fort Ticonderoga. Small loss at folds and two tears repaired with archival tape, else toned and lightly soiled. Just about very good condition.According to Jack Authelet, author of Foxborough: gem of Norfolk County, "Paul Revere and William Dawes spread the alarm. The British were marching to seize the stores of powder held at Lexington and Concord. Word spread quickly through the territory, and the Minute Men marched in response to the alarm. Captains Josiah Pratt and Eleazer (sic) Robbins of Stoughton (which included the present East Foxborough) commanded two of the nine companies that left Stoughton on April 19, 1775, in response to the call to arms...These officers were leading more than militia companies. They were leading friends, the sons of their neighbors, other family members, and people they saw every Sunday at worship, giving them a heightened sense of responsibility for their troops."
