CLICQUOT DE BLERVACHE (Simon) ].
2 ouvrages en 1 volume in-12. 1). VIII. 72pp. 2). 180pp. Plein veau, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre en maroquin, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque, coins légèrement émoussés, charnières fendillées). Edition Originale de ce traité précurseur du libéralisme, par l'économiste d'origine rémoise Simon Clicquot de Blervache (1723-1796). Composée avec l'assistance de Vincent de Gournay, l'ouvrage constitue une attaque contre les règlementations et monopoles des différents corps de métiers, perçus comme autant de freins aux progrès de l'industrie. Clicquot de Blervache fut d'abord procureur-syndic de Reims, avant de devenir inspecteur général du commerce, sur recommandation du ministre Trudaine. On doit à cet écrivain élégant divers ouvrages portant sur l'histoire économique et sur les corps de métiers, en particuliers celui des laboureurs. Bon exemplaire. 2). Rare Edition Originale de la première traduction française de l'ouvrage du banquier et économiste italien Jérôme Belloni (1688-1760). Il voulut rendre utile au public les connaissances qu'il devait à sa longue pratique des affaires, et fit publier ses réflexions en 1750. D'inspiration mercantiliste, son traité compte parmi les plus importants apports à la science économique produits au XVIIe siècle. Dédicataire de l'ouvrage, le pape Benoît XIV en fut si satisfait qu'il décora l'auteur du titre de marquis. Cette traduction est l'oeuvre du publiciste avignonnais François Morénas (1702-1774). Taches angulaire aux premiers feuillets, mais bon exemplaire par ailleurs. 2). Quérard, II, 228. 1). Quérard, I, 267. [Attributes: Firs … [Click Below for Full Description]

The author used documents, since lost, in the archives of Caracas in an attempt to preserve their information; a second part was probably never published; see comments in Leclerc, Palau, and Sabin. The author, military officer and historian who retired from the army in 1730 with the rank of lieutenant general, was born in Bogota, 1671, and died at Caracas, 1738, having spent the greater part of his life in Venezuela. Educated in Lima, he was from a family linked to the Spanish bureaucracy in America.The book is dedicated to the author's brother, Diego Antonio de Oviedo y Baños, Oidor of the Royal Audiencias of Santo Domingo, Guatemala, and Mexico, a member of the Consejo Real y Supremo de las Indias … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible in Latin].
Venice: Nicolaum Pezzan 1723. Antoine Vitre (1595Ð1674) was a highly regarded French printer and editor. He served as the King's printer for Oriental languages and printed several works with Arabic fonts, notably the Paris Polyglot Bible, edited by Guy Michel Le Jay in 1645, which embraces the first printed texts of the Syriac Old Testament edited by Gabriel Sionita. This edition includes a geographical table by Augustin Lubin (1624-1695), who served as geographer to the King. Quarto. [20], 1060, liv [i.e. lxiv] pp. Title printed in black adn red. Text in double columns. Illustrated with upwards of 200 fine woodcuts, 2 3/4" x 5," each within a decorative border. Attractively bound in full tan antique-style polished calf, spine stamped in gilt and black with red morocco label, edges sprinkled red, new endpapers Edges very lightly foxed. A very good, appealing copy. An important feature of this edition is the over 200 fine woodcut illustrations. We have been unable to determine the artist, but they are quite striking. They doubtless were used in earlier editions, as well, but we do not know when they were first executed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Zürich, Joseph Lindinner, 1721-1723. Erste Ausgabe eines der epochemachenden Bücher der deutschen Literatur, Bodmers erste Veröffentlichung. Die berühmte Zeitschrift gilt als die erste deutschsprachige Moralische Wochenschrift und wird oft als der eigentliche Beginn der neueren deutschen Literatur bezeichnet. Sie erhielt ihren Titel dadurch, dass ihre Mitarbeiter – mit wenigen Ausnahmen sind die Beiträge überwiegend von Bodmer und Breitinger – ihre Beiträge mit den Namen berühmter Maler unterzeichneten. Weiter beteiligt waren Laurenz Zellweger, Johann Jakob Lauffer, Daniel Cornelius Zollikofer, Johann Heinrich Meister und Johann Georg Altmann. Die kunst- und literaturtheoretischen Diskurse der seltenen Zeitschrift legen bereits den Grund zur zukünftigen Poetik der Schweizer, die später zu der grundsätzlichen, höchst bedeutsamen Auseinandersetzung mit Gottsched führten. "Bereits war hier vom gegenseitigen Verhältnis der Künste die Rede, die durch . die Nachahmung der Natur verwandt, aber hinsichtlich der Ungleichheit ihrer Ausführung voneinander verschieden sind. Bereits hier wurden der Phantasie und der Inspiration, der Tiefe und Gewalt der Empfindung, die ihnen eigentümliche Stellung angewiesen" (Bodmer-Denkschrift S. 9). Die Herausgeber hatten einige Zeit mit den "verzopften Zürcher Zensoren" (Leemann-van Elck) zu kämpfen, denen die Zeitschrift nicht erbaulich genug erschien. Weiter hatte man mit Absatzschwierigkeiten zu kämpfen. Von den 400 gedruckten Exemplaren ging die Hälfte nach Deutschland und noch 1729 hatte der Züricher Buchhändler Andrae einen Packen der 'Discour … [Click Below for Full Description]

London, Brotherton, 1723. In-8, plein veau d'origine (avec son premier dos). XVII + 364 pp. + 3 feuillets d'index. Bien que Talleyrand n'était pas coutumier des annotations dans les livres de sa bibliothèque, il est loisible d'envisager à quel point l'ancien évêque d'Autun et le nouveau Machiavel, conseiller de l'Empereur et des rois, a pu se sentir concerné par les considérations sur le bonheur national, sur le gouvernement et peut-être et surtout par l'imposant chapitre sur les devoirs réciproques entre le clergé et le laïque. - - - Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord, 1st Prince of Benevento, then 1st Prince of Talleyrand, was a laicized French bishop, politician, and diplomat. After theology studies, he became in 1780 Agent-General of the Clergy and represented the Catholic Church to the French Crown. He worked at the highest levels of successive French governments, most commonly as foreign minister or in some other diplomatic capacity. His career spanned the regimes of Louis XVI, the years of the French Revolution, Napoleon, Louis XVIII, and Louis-Philippe. Those he served often distrusted Talleyrand but, like Napoleon, found him extremely useful. The name "Talleyrand" has become a byword for crafty, cynical diplomacy. He was Napoleon's chief diplomat during the years when French military victories brought one European state after another under French hegemony, as, he believed, they rightfully should be.[citation needed] However, most of the time, Talleyrand worked for peace so as to consolidate France's gains. He succeeded in obtaining peace with Austria through th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Garcia de la Concepcion, Joseph
Juan de la Puerta, Sevilla, 1723. Folio, 29 x 20.5cm, pp [37],216,203,173,39,[30 - an index of "cosas notables"], with full-page plate showing the Nativity scene. History of the foundation of the Bethlemite order in Guatemala by Brother Peter of Saint Joseph Betancur, i.e. Santo Hermano Pedro (1626- 1667), together with a biography of the saint. Betancur, born in the Canary Islands, came to Guatemala as a young man, aspiring to become a priest. Unable to master the Latin, he withdrew from the Jesuit school, became a Franciscan tertiary, and founded a hospital in Antigua, Guatemala. This was followed by a school, a hospice for poor travellers -- priest and students esp. -- and finally the founding of a new order, la Orden de los Bethlemitas y de las Bethlemitas, recognized by the Holy See -- the first new religious order in the Americas. His hospital work was innovative, as it was specially intended for convalescents. He is credited with introducing the Nativity scene ("Belen") into Christmas festivities into the continent, and the posada processions, that quickly took root throughout Latin America, esp. Mexico and Peru. This work is divided into four parts, containing a life of Hermano Pedro, a life of Fray Rodrigo de la Cruz, the second superior general, a history of the order in Latin America, and a brief section on the lives of other important persons in the order.
