Description:
Although the author is unknown, he was an officer of the squadron commanded by Comte d'Estaing which was sent by France in 1778 to aid the American patriots. He gives a detailed account of the encounter with the British fleet under Lord Howe near Newport. He also gives a valuable firsthand report of the violent storm that separated the two fleets, making it necessary for d'Estaing to retire to Boston for repairs instead of remaining to support the American land forces. This compelled General Sullivan to evacuate Rhode Island and leave Newport to the British.Charles-Hector, Comte d'Estaing was a vice-admiral in the French navy and the senior naval officer in American waters during the Revolutionary War. He transported the first contingent of French land forces to Rhode Island in 1778 and participated in 1779 in the siege of Savannah. He supported the Revolution in France after 1789 and died on the gallows during the Reign of Terror.12mo. Disbound. A Bruxelles, 1782. Written in response to: Extrait du… Read More

Description:
8vo. Full 18th century-style morocco binding by Philip Dusel, gilt ruled, gilt decorations on spine, 5 raised bands, spine label with gilt letters. A Leyde 1744. First Edition of Maupertuis' pioneering work on embryology and genetics. Maupertuis, a French mathematician, philosopher and man of letters, was the Director of the Académie des Sciences, and the first President of the Prussian Academy of Science, at the invitation of Frederick the Great. This present dissertation "was written after an albino Negro appeared in Paris. A scientist, philosopher, and original thinker, Maupertuis was years ahead of his time in many aspects of biology, particularly embryology and genetics. His arguments against the then-prevailing theory of peformation and for epigenesis were so close to the idea of evolution that he is a true forerunner of Darwin and Mendel. His theories and observations are contained in this work, which he may have had published anonymously to avoid repercussions from Church authorities."… Read More

Description:
THE CONCEPTUAL ORIGIN OF "NEWSPEAK"8vo. Contemporary full calf; gilt decorations on spine; spine label; green silk bookmark. A Paris, Chez Les Marchands De Nouveautés, 1797. First Edition.La Harpe was the first to denounce an essential mechanism of terror, the manipulation of language; or the concept of "Newspeak," as developed by George Orwell in 1984.La Harpe shows how revolutionaries gave words new meanings to handle the crowds. They established a "reverse language" that allowed spying in the name of freedom, tyranny in the name of equality, massacre in the name of fraternity, persecution in the name of tolerance, etc. This inversion of language - which led to the guillotine and the Vendée "genocide" - was set up by the so-called Enlightenment philosophers, including Voltaire who consistently associated the word "fanatical" with Catholic. Binding worn and chipped at lower spine and bottom edge; endpapers refreshed; generally clean internally. Scarce.

First Edition in French of Ehrmann's work; First Edition of Lavoisier's Mémoires. "Friedrich Ludwig Ehrmann, professor of physics at Strasbourg, was one of Lavoisier's correspondents and one of the earliest converts to his new chemical theories. A series of experiments on which Ehrmann's work... is based were conducted at the same time as Lavoisier was working on the effects of high temperatures on various substances. The results that both obtained... were so similar that Lavoisier, who must have seen Ehrmann's manuscript before its publication, requested that his own memoirs on the subject be printed together with Ehrmann's essay" Binding slightly worn; the text block bright and clean; one plate with some extra vertical creases from mis-folding; o/w Fine.

Description:
CONTEMPORARY ANALYSIS OF THE FIRST PARTITION OF POLAND8vo. Disbound. London 1773. (The imprint is purposefully false; all examples of this pamphlet were actually printed in Amsterdam.) First Edition. The pamphlet concerns the 1772 first partition of Poland, judging the partition neither just nor useful. "… an unjust system by virtue of the violation of all the rights of Men; pernicious to Europe by an example that destroys the ties of society; dangerous to two Powers interested in the unmeasured and free elevation of the third, of which both Powers have much to fear." (Translated from the Polish)The First Partition of Poland, or the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, took place in 1772 as the first of 3 partitions that ended the existence of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth by 1795. Frederick the Great engineered the partition to prevent Austria, jealous of Russian successes against the Ottoman Empire, from going to war. The weakened Commonwealth's land, including what was already controlled by… Read More

Description:
8vo. Original paper boards; paper label on spine. Printed by B. Bensley; Published by the Author; London 1829. "A New Edition." Cobbett had spent his youth in the army, stationed in New Brunswick, where he felt the officers were corrupt and the soldiers underpaid and mistreated. He published The Soldier's Friend in 1792, complaining on these grievances, which caused him to fear reprisal, and so he fled to France. Unfortunately, he arrived at the height of the French Revolution, so his plan to learn French more thoroughly was sidetracked as he continued on to the United States. Once there he found employment teaching English to French exiles, learning their language in the process, resulting in his French Grammar.Board corners and edges are bumped a bit, with some staining; leaves are clean and amply margined; uncut; with the last leaves of quire K unopened, and with some mild foxing and occasional mild toning; o/w Very Nice.

Description:
Illustrated with 15 large folding plates. 4to. Modern ½-leather-backed boards. Paris, Ph.-D. Pierres, 1788. First Edition. In 1785 the French surgeon Jacque René Tenon was required by royal command to make a scientific study of European hospitals. He traveled for 18 months in France, England and Germany, after which he prepared and published his report, which revealed the appalling conditions prevailing in Parisian hospitals. This was particularly true of the Hotel-Dieu. With great foresight, he proposed a series of reforms. He believed particularly that "there must be rooms in which to prepare for operations, for the operations themselves, and for those who have undergone operations; these rooms must be removed from noise and from infection." Tenon's work had a prodigious effect and profoundly influenced the King and the public. His proposed reforms were upset by the French Revolution, but nevertheless served during the 19th century as the conceptual guide for the majority of European hospitals. A… Read More
