        Die Discourse der Mahlern [4.Teil:] Die Mahler, Oder: Discourse von den Sitten Der Menschen. Erster Theil (- Der vierdte und letzte Theil.) Vier Teile in einem Band. Mit einer gestochenen Titelvignette. Zür[i]ch, Drückts Joseph Lindinner [4.Teil:]

      Zürich, in der Bodmerischen Druckerey 1721 - 1723 - (104) Bll.; (2) Bll., 206 S.; (2) Bll., 204 S.; (2) Bll., 131 [irrig: 231] S. Pappband d.Zt. mit späterem handschriftl. Rückentitel. Berieben, Bezug über dem vorderen Gelenk rissig. - Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke IV/1,9,1 [Bodmer]; Diesch 503; Kirchner 4832). – Erster Titel hinterlegt, teils etwas fleckig, etwas eng gebunden. Aus der Bibliothek des deutsch-französischen Bankiers und Büchersammlers JEAN FURSTENBERG (Berlin 1890 – 1982 Beaumesnil), der als Jude 1936 aus Deutschland emigrieren musste, seine bedeutende Bibliothek aber mitnehmen konnte. Sein Exlibris a.d. Innendeckel. - Vollständiges Exemplar dieser äußerst seltenen ersten eigenständigen deutschsprachigen "moralischen Wochenschrift", oft als eigentlicher Beginn der neueren deutschen Literatur bezeichnet. Zwar nennt W.Martens (Die Botschaft der Tugend, S.544) den von J.MATTHESON in Hamburg 1721 herausgegebenen "Vernünfftler" zuerst, dieser bestand aber ausschließlich aus Übersetzungen aus den englischen Wochenschriften "Tattler" und "Spectator". Davon unabhängig hatte sich 1720 in Zürich eine Gruppe junger Männer um J.J.BODMER als "Gesellschafft der Mahlern" gegründet mit dem Ziel, eine Wochenschrift in der Art des "Spectator, den sie nur in der französ. Ausgabe kannten, für die Schweiz und Deutschland einzurichten. Jeder Beitrag sollte pseudonym unter dem Namen eines großen Malers gedruckt werden. Die Hefte/Discourse, erschienen vom 3.Mai 1721 an jeweils mit dem Umfang eines Halbbogens, also 8 Seiten. Aus heutiger Sicht zeigen sie die Merkmale eines ersten Versuchs im Umgang mit einem neuen Genre. Während anfangs die Verwandtschaft mit den zeittypischen "Tugendbüchern" unübersehbar ist, wandelt sich der Charakter der Beiträge auch infolge der kritischen Resonanz hin zu weniger didaktischer Tendenz. "Volkstümlich", später ein wichtiges Kriterium für moralische Wochenschriften, waren die Discourse bis zu ihrem Ende nach insgesamt 93 Heften / Discoursen (XXIV; XXIV; XXV; XX) nicht. Von BODMER stammen, außer dem programmatischen Vorwort, insgesamt 45 Artikel, somit nahezu die Hälfte aller veröffentlichten Beiträge. Breitinger steuerte insgesamt 27 Beiträge bei, dreizehn sind als Gemeinschaftsarbeit bezeichnet. „Die restlichen Artikel verfassten der Appenzeller Arzt und Landesarchivar LAURENZ ZELLWEGER (1692-1764), der Aargauer Historiker JOHANN JAKOB LAUFFER (1688-1734), der St. Galler Jurist DANIEL CORNELIUS ZOLLIKOFER, der Schaffhauser Pfarrer JOHANN HEINRICH MEISTER (1700-1781) und der Zofinger Theologe, Philologe und Historiker JOHANN GEORG ALTMANN (1695-1758). „Da den ‚verzopften Zürcher Zensoren‘ (Leemann-van Elck) die Zeitschrift nicht ‚erbaulich genug‘ erschien, sahen sich die beiden Herausgeber gezwungen, die unterhaltsame Tendenz durch diverse Formen der Selbstzensur häufiger zu reduzieren. Beiträge mussten mitunter mehrfach der Zensur vorgelegt werden, ehe sie freigegeben wurden. Rund die Hälfte der 400 Druckexemplare der Wochenschrift wurde nach Deutschland exportiert, wo sie insgesamt auf größere Resonanz stieß als im Ursprungsland.“ (Erasmushaus, Intermezzo 52,19). "Obwohl die Auflage der Discourse vergleichsweise gering war - der Debit für Deutschland lag bei 200 Exemplaren, für die Schweiz noch darunter, der Patriot [1724/6] hingegen hatte eine Auflage von 5000, GOTTSCHEDs "Die vernünftigen Tadlerinnen" [1725/6] von 2000 Exemplaren - hatte man mit Absatzschwierigkeiten zu kämpfen. Noch 1729 hatte der Züricher Buchhändler ANDRAE eine Anzahl Discourse 'bei der Stelle liegen'." (H.Brandes. Die Gesellschaft der Maler, S.37). Nach dem 73.Heft zog sich der Verleger LINDINNER zurück, seine Druckerei erwarben „HEIDEGGER und RAHN“, wo die letzten 20 Hefte dann in unregelmäßiger Folge unter dem Impressum der 1723 ebenfalls von „HEIDEGGER und RAHN“ übernommenen „Bodmerischen Druckerey“ erschienen (der manchmal zu lesende Hinweis "Selbstverlag BODMERs" ist falsch). Eine neue Auflage veröffentlichte BODMER 1746 unter dem Titel "Der Mahler der Sitten". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Obras de albeytería. Aora nuevamente añadido la sanidad del cavallo y explicación de sus enfemedades

      1723 - One of the most important works on horse veterinary published in Spain. 1723. Madrid. Francisco del Hierro. Folio (276 x 200 mm). 6 ff., 380 pp. Recent calf antique, boards tooled in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Paper almost uniformly browned, as expected due to the poor paper used for the edition, else good. 2,000 $ Early edition, one of the most significant treatises on albeyteria made in Spain in the 17th century, demonstrated by the several editions it went through; Arredondo´s work on the veterinary on horses was well accepted in his time and into the next century. On pp.147 we find the full-page woodcut illustrating a horse surrounded by the zodiac signs and their influence on the animal. The work is divided in three parts, dealing with pathology, therapeutics, antidotes and pharmacology, anatomy (some of it after Ruini). “Sin embargo que esta obra presenta sus extravios, sobre todo en la anatomia, no se puede negar que la Veterinaria le debe mucho a Arredondo, pues trato varios puntos con madurez y reflexion El alfabeto medicinal de simples es muy digno de leerse” (Catalogo de algunos Autores Españoles que han escrito de Veterinaria, pp.15, 1780). “Arredondo se propuso recopilar los autores españoles que escribieron de veterinaria: cita las obras de los que mas se han distinguido en ello, y las personas ilustres que mas contribuian en su epoca a honrar esta clase de conocimientos” (Braulio Antón Ramírez, Diccionario de bibliografía agronómica, pp.302). The albeyteria was the science dedicated to the maintenance, treating and curing of animals, especially equine; it´s origins in the Spanish language are the “Llibre de la menescalia” or Libro de Albeyteria by Diaz, and shortly after, the one by Reyna. It is an early attempt of veterinary science, although plagued with folk knowledge and advice, appealing in instances to sciences as astrology, instead of scientific method. A rare edition, we found copies at: Danish Union Catalogue, Universitat de Valencia, Biblioteca Nacional de España, Biblioteca Universitaria de Granada, Universidad Complutense, Texas A&M. Palau, 17372. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Carte des Pays Voisins de la Mer Caspiene

      Artist: L Isle de /Covens & Mortier Guillaume ca ; issued in: Paris; date: ca1723 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 45,5 x 61; - description: Map shows the Caspian sea with its countries to the Blach sea; - vita of the artist: Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Dell'istoria civile del Regno di Napoli libri XL scritti da Pietro Giannone giureconsulto, ed avvocato napoletano. Tomo 1-4.

      Per lo stampatore Niccolò Naso, In Napoli. 4 v. ([24], 534, [2] p.; [8], 575, [1] p.; [8], 566, [2] p.; [8], 502, [42] p.), 4º(26 cm), pergamena coeva con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo, qualche fioritura e qualche segnatura brunita leggera, qualche leggerissima brunitura ad alcune segnature, timbretto araldico privato ai frontespizi con timbrino poco sopra d'epoca "Duplicato 1890", mancanza di alcuni cm alla parte alta del dorso del primo volume reintegrata d'epoca. Fregio xil sui front. stampati in rosso e nero. Prima assai rara edizione (anche perché l'opera venne da subito inserita nell'Indice dei Libri Proibiti) di questa celeberrima opera del grande filosofo illuminista, storico e giurista nato a Ischitella (Foggia) nel 1676 e morto a Torino nel 1748, Pietro Giannone. "Dell'Istoria Civile" pubblicata nel 1723 in quattro volumi, ebbe da subito enorme fortuna anche all'estero (Inghilterra, Francia e Germania), dove fu tradotta e studiata, mentre la Chiesa ne avversò le tesi ponendola nell'Indice dei libri proibiti e comminando al filosofo una scomunica, in seguito alla quale Giannone riparò all'estero. I temi trattati nell'opera, sviluppati intorno a precisi riferimenti giuridici, forniscono una lucida descrizione della situazione morale del Regno di Napoli, attribuendo le cause della situazione all'influenza negativa della Curia romana. Il Giannone auspicava con quest'opera, tra l'altro, "il rischiaramento delle nostre leggi patrie e dei nostri propri istituti e costumi". Le sue opere furono tra le più plagiate del settecento come disse anche lo stesso Manzoni nel capitolo settimo della "Storia della Colonna Infame". Giannone, discendente da una famiglia di avvocati (anche se il padre era uno speziale), a diciotto anni lasciò il paese natale Ischitella, nei pressi di Foggia, per intraprendere gli studi di giurisprudenza a Napoli. Nella città partenopea conseguì la laurea entrando ben presto in contatto con filosofi vicini a Giambattista Vico e apprezzando le idee di Cartesio e Nicolas Malebranche. Fu praticante presso Gaetano Argento, che disponeva di una vasta biblioteca, la frequentazione della quale fu essenziale per la sua formazione. I suoi interessi non si limitarono soltanto al diritto ed alla filosofia, appassionandosi anche agli studi storici e dedicandosi per ben vent'anni alla stesura della sua opera storica più conosciuta Dell'istoria civile del regno di Napoli, che gli causò tuttavia numerosi problemi con la Chiesa per il suo contenuto. Costretto a riparare a Vienna presso la corte asburgica, ottenne protezione e sovvenzioni dall'imperatore Carlo VI, il che gli permise di proseguire indisturbato i suoi studi filosofici e storici. Il suo tentativo di rientrare in patria fu ostacolato dalla Chiesa, nonostante i buoni uffici dell'arcivescovo di Napoli recatosi a Vienna per convincerlo a tornare a Napoli, e fu costretto a trasferirsi a Venezia dove, fu molto apprezzato dall'ambiente culturale della città, rifiutò sia la cattedra alla facoltà di giurisprudenza dell'Università di Padova, sia un posto di consulente giuridico presso la Serenissima. Nel 1735 il governo della Repubblica lo espulse, dopo averlo sottoposto a stretti controlli spionistici, per questioni inerenti alle sue idee sul diritto marittimo e nonostante la sua autodifesa con il trattato Lettera intorno al dominio del Mare Adriatico. Dopo aver vagato per l'Italia (fu a Ferrara, Modena, Milano e Torino), giunse a Ginevra, patria del calvinismo, dove compose un altro lavoro dal forte sapore anticlericale Il Triregno. Del regno terreno, Del regno celeste, Del regno papale (pubblicato postumo solo nel 1895) che gli costò nuovamente la persecuzione delle alte sfere ecclesiastiche culminate con la sua cattura (1º aprile 1736, giorno di Pasqua) in un villaggio della Savoia. Rimasto nelle prigioni sabaude per molti anni (l'ultima delle quali fu la fortezza-carcere di Torino dove rimase prigioniero per ben dodici anni), fu costretto a firmare un atto di abiura (1738) che non gli valse tuttavia la libertà. Infatti, dal dicembre 1738 fu tenuto prigioniero nella fortezza di Ceva, dove scrisse alcuni dei suoi componimenti più famosi; vi rimase fino al 1744 per essere poi trasferito. Morì nella prigione del mastio della Cittadella di Torino il 17 marzo 1748, all'età di 72 anni.

        Partie Occidentale de la Carte des Anciennes Monarchies. / Partie Orientale de la Carte des Anciennes Monarchies.

      Artist: Vaugondy de Didier/ Gilles Robert ( - 1786) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1737 1723 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Printed on 2 sheets joined together,centerfolf restored; - size (in cm): 50,5 x 120,5; - description: Map shows the total Roman Empire in Europe ( eastern and western part) with parts of Asia and Africa and the Middle East. With two inset maps: the old world ( Asia, Afica and Europe) and Greece. Decorative title cartouche and detailed mountains and rivers. Ancient Rome was originally an Italic settlement dating from the 8th century BC that grew into the city of Rome and which subsequently gave its name to the empire over which it ruled and to the widespread civilisation the empire developed. The Roman empire expanded to become one of the largest empires in the ancient world. After defeating the Macedonian and Seleucid Empires in the 2nd century BC, the Romans became the dominant people of the Mediterranean Sea.;The Roman Empire was one of the largest in history, with contiguous territories throughout Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. In reality, Roman expansion was mostly accomplished under the Republic, though parts of northern Europe were conquered in the 1st century AD, when Roman control in Europe, Africa and Asia was strengthened. During the reign of Augustus, a ;global map of the known world; was displayed for the first time in public at Rome, coinciding with the composition of the most comprehensive work on political geography that survives from antiquity, the Geography of the Pontic Greek writer Strabo. When Augustus died, the commemorative account of his achievements (Res Gestae) prominently featured the geographical cataloguing of peoples and places within the Empire. Geography, the census, and the meticulous keeping of written records were central concerns of Roman Imperial administration.; -vita of the artist: Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723 -1786) also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name.The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sanson's grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson. From him, they inherited much of Sanson's cartographic material, which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillot's death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel.

        Orbis Vetus in utraque continente

      Artist: Vaugondyde Robert ( - 1786) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1702 1723 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Mounted, missing part on lower center replaced, tear on left lower side restored, fold; - size (in cm): 47,5 x 71; - description: Decorative map shows the world in two hemispheres, california as an island an 2 decorative cartouches. The Island of California refers to a long-held Spanish misconception, dating from the 16th century, that California was not part of mainland North America but rather a large island separated from the continent by a strait now known as the Gulf of California.One of the most famous cartographic errors in history, it was propagated on many maps during the 17th and 18th centuries, despite contradictory evidence from various explorers. The legend was initially infused with the idea that California was a terrestrial paradise, like the Garden of Eden or Atlantis. Australia not completely depicted as the complete coast was not charted at that time.; -vita of the artist: Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723 -1786) also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name.The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sanson's grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson. From him, they inherited much of Sanson's cartographic material, which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillot's death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel.

        Ceremonies et Coutumes Religieuses de tous les Peuples du Monde, représentées par des figures dessinées de la main de Bernard Picart: avec une explication historique, & quelques dissertations curieuses.

      Amsterdam: J. F. Bernard, 1723—39 - 7 volumes, folio (400 x 240 mm). Contemporary calf professionally refurbished, decorative gilt spines (floriate tools, interlocking drawer-handle motifs, reticulated bands in numbering compartments), tawny-coloured labels, red mottled edges. Early ownership inscription of "C. L. Geller" at foot of front free endpaper in each volume; neat early 19th-century book label of C. H. Soltau (the Soltau family played an important part in the early days of the Plymouth Brethren); ownership inscription of Henry and Jane Birkbeck (dated April 1820), the Birkbecks were a Norfolk banking family; early note of purchase price on front free endpaper of volume I: "£25 - 7. vols. III 1797". Occasional dust-marking, some gatherings toned. An excellent set. 223 engraved plates by Picart (31 double-page or folding), engraved title vignettes and headpieces, woodcut decorations; title pages printed in red and black. Mixed early editions of one of the great books of the 18th century, a work that "marked a major turning point in European attitudes toward religious belief" (Hunt, Jacob & Mijnhardt, The Book that Changed Europe: Picart & Bernard's Religious Ceremonies of the World, Harvard UP 2010, p. 1). Originally published between 1723 and 1737, the monumental Ceremonies and Religious Customs of the Various Nations was the result of a collaboration between Europe's leading engraver, Bernard Picart, and the publisher and author Jean Frederic Bernard. Both men were Protestant refugees driven by the Counter-Reformation from France to Amsterdam, where, in a fertile milieu of radicals and free-thinkers, they produced one of the world's greatest religious books. "The original seven volumes were supplemented by two others that are very different in character and not included here [in the Getty Research Library's set]" (ibid.). Volume VII concludes with an extensive index. Born in France in 1680, Bernard moved to Amsterdam with his family in 1686. He became a full member of the bookseller's guild in 1711 and though he "possessed a good business acumen, books for him were more than just a business. He became a highly selective publisher with a small catalogue dominated by free-spirited theological inquiry and travel literature" (ibid. p. 94). The trials his family faced in France deeply affected the young man, who developed "a lifelong doubt about the value of established religion, and a quest for religion's underlying essence" (ibid. p. 95). He also believed that it was his role as publisher to provide readers with "the information necessary to find their way out of the labyrinth of delusions and begin to decide religious matters for themselves" (ibid. p. 106). After a decade in publishing, Bernard announced in 1720 a grand plan for a religious encyclopaedia. Eventually comprising seven volumes and more than 200 engraved plates, The Religious Ceremonies was a massive undertaking and the culmination of his life-long interest in religion. By presenting the world's religions as equally deserving of intellectual understanding, he ultimately made the case that there existed among all peoples a pure "natural religion" distinct from the elaborate and sometimes immoral practices imposed by priests. To accomplish this he compiled the most up-to-date and accurate sources and added his own commentary. While guiding the reader with careful juxtapositions he also maintained an academic distance, allowing his sources to speak for themselves and the reader to make up his own mind. Just as influential as the text, Picart's engravings were small masterpieces, drawn from life wherever possible and otherwise taken respectfully from the most authentic sources. As well as making his images beautiful and accurate, the engraver "constantly strove to make foreign deities, practices or processions more palatable to European viewers He achieved this effect in various ways, but putting unfamiliar deities on classical pedestals, by excluding the scenes of greatest violence depicted by
