        Veue du Pont de Rialto de Venise

      Amsterdam 1724 - Esemplare tratto dal primo volume del "Nouveau Theatre de l'Italie" pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1704/5 e nel 1724, quale integrazione al progetto di Johannes Baleu, iniziato nel 1663, del grande "libro delle città", manchevole delle piante di gran parte della parte settentrionale della penisola. Il Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristampati da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l’Italie". L’opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall’aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell’opera. L’atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all’inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell’opera diede origine ad un’ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Cremonini pp. 83-90. Dimensioni 565 460mm

KJL III, 54 Wegehaupt 79. -Basedow (1724-1790) legte 1774 sein pädagogisches Elementarwerk zu Grundfragen der Erziehung des Menschen vor. Zu den Schwerpunkten, denen er große Bedeutung beimaß, gehörte auch die geschlechtliche Aufklärung und Unterweisung. Bereits in seiner Philalethie (Altona 1764) hatte er die Forderung an alle Eltern und Erzieher gestellt, den brennenden Fragen der Kinder nicht auszuweichen, sondern sie wahrheits- und kindgemäß zu beantworten. In seinem Elementarwerk gab er auch praktische Anregungen für die Unterweisung in Elternhaus und Schule. Daniel Chodowiecki schuf dafür die hier leider fehlenden Kupfertafeln. Mit dem Elementarwerk schuf Basedow das moderne Realienbuch: Es verband Text und Bild und Sachinformationen, die dialogisch erörtert wurden.

He planned to print no more than 500 copies, namely 390 copies (130 in each language) on "papier ordinaire forme d'Atlas" for 50 guilders and 110 copies (38 in Latin and 36 in French and Dutch) on "grand papier forme d'Atlas" for 60 guilders. They were to be paid in five instalments, one in advance and the others on receipt of each of the four volumes. With a name on title-page, probably by the publisher to indicate the recipient. In fine condition, complete with the final blank leaf, with all deckles intact and never bound or sewn. It was formerly folded in quarters and has a tiny hole in the final blank leaf, where the folds cross. A rare prospectus for a great atlas, with valuable information about the atlas itself and about the international book trade of the time.

      apud Joannem à Kerckhem,, Lugduni Batavorum, 1724 - In 4°; (38), 557, (59) pp. e 21 c. di tav. fuori testo a piena pagina compreso il primo frontespizio inciso con emblemi. Bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo manoscritto da mano coeva al dorso, una pecetta in pergamena anticamente applicata al piatto anteriore, ininfluente, e per il resto esemplare in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. L’esemplare presenta una carta bianca aggiunta all’inizio e alla fine del volume. Questo esemplare è unico in quanto pur non presentando il ritratto dell’autore presente nelle altre copie conosciute, è l’unico esemplare censito in ICCU e bibliografie che presenta un numero di 20 tavole fuori testo (comprese le 3 più volte ripiegate) invece delle 17 presenti negli altri esemplari. Quindi questo esemplare possiede tre tavole completamente sconosciute alle altre copie. Trattasi probabilmente di esemplare di presentazione o prova. Marco Aurelio Severino (Tarsia provincia Cosenza, 1580 – Napoli, 1656) fu celebre lettore di Anatomia e Chirurgia nello Studio di Napoli dal 1622 al 1645, nonché medico di chirurgia pratica presso il nosocomio degli Incurabili di Napoli. Teorico e operatore diretto di una chirurgia attiva detta da lui stesso ‘del medicar crudo’, fu valente anatomista e pubblicò la Zootomia democritea la prima opera di anatomia comparata. Fu tra i più celebri medici e chirurghi del suo tempo e sembra che sia stato allievo di Tommaso Campanella, di Giulio Iasolino. Fu tra i primi chirurghi ad operare certi tipi di pazienti tanto che già nel 1625 scrisse "Ho fatto per primo questo tipo di operazione in Napoli, essendo tuttavia stato contestato al principio da altri medici, che protestarono presso i Governatori e Intendenti dell’Ospedale, dato che credevano che essa potesse esporre i pazienti ad un grave rischio" (libera traduzione dal latino di De efficaci medicina, 1646, p. 62). Evidentemente l’opera di Severino non venne apprezzata dai colleghi, che, attenti soprattutto a lenire il dolore provocato dalle lesioni, si astenevano generalmente dall’aggredire il male con azioni che potessero peggiorare una sintomatologia dolorosa. Il principio ispiratore di Severino era al contrario quello di intervenire immediatamente, allorquando a suo parere era chiaro che il processo patologico non mostrava segni di risoluzione spontanea. Severino cercò di dimostrare la validità della tesi di un rapido intervento, seppur doloroso ma risolutivo, contro un’attesa improduttiva, sia nella pratica, che con il sostegno di citazione di altri Autori tra cui Prospero Alpino (1553-1616), che nel De Medicina Aegyptiorum aveva difeso l’uso del ferro e del fuoco già praticato dagli antichi Egizi con successo. Nel 1632 Severinopubblicò la sua prima opera chirurgica il De recondita abscessum natura, sulla natura nascosta degli ascessi: egli era convinto che la maggior parte delle malattie esitava con la produzione di un ascesso, nel cui concetto comprendeva forme differenziate di lesioni patologiche, quali formazioni innaturali, escrescenze, tumori e rigonfiamenti indipendentemente dalla natura e causa determinante. Per quanto riguarda la terapia, Severino propose di evitare di ritardare l’apertura di un ascesso con bisturi (ferro) nel caso in cui abbia raggiunto lo stadio di maturazione, cioè se la materia che lo forma è ‘cotta’. Tuttavia, se la materia permane allo stato ‘crudo’, o se evolve lentamente, Severino non ha dubbi sul metodo di recidere l’ascesso per mezzo di un ferro rovente (ferro e fuoco), il cui calore trasmesso fa raggiungere a maturazione rapida la materia al grado di ‘cozione’, mentre il ferro permette l’eliminazione chirurgia della lesione. Non bastò a Severino la pubblicazione del De recondita per far ridurre proteste e denunce: non aiutava certamente il linguaggio di scrittura in latino che se permetteva una divulgazione delle sue idee in un ceto colto e specializzato, non era la via comunicativa più idonea nei riguardi di un’utenza ospedaliera, fatta di pazienti generalmente inc

        THE RELIGION OF NATURE DELINEATED

      Lintott ...,. 1724. Hardcover. Contemporary panelled calf. 4to. 218 pages; 26 cm. In English with bibliographical footnotes in English, Greek, Hebrew, and Latin. Mottoes on title page in Greek by Plutarch and Plato. William Wollaston “was a school teacher, a Church of England priest, a scholar of Latin, Greek and Hebrew, a theologian, and a major Enlightenment era English philosopher. He is remembered today for one book, which he completed only two years before his death: The Religion of Nature Delineated. Yet despite his cloistered life and his single book, due to his influence on eighteenth-century philosophy and his promotion of a Natural Religion, he may be considered one of the great British Enlightenment philosophers, along with Locke, Berkeley, and Hume. His work contributed to the development of two important intellectual schools: British Deism, and ‘the pursuit of happinessÂ’ moral philosophy of American Practical Idealism, which appears notably in the United States Declaration of Independence” (Wikipedia 2017) . Benjamin Franklin wrote that he worked as a compositor on this book, which prompted him to publish his pamphlet, 'A Dissertation on Liberty and Necessity, Pleasure and Pain. Â’ The Library of Congress keeps their copy in their Benjamin Franklin collection. SUBJECT(S) : Natural theology, Early works to 1800, Philosophy. Moderate pencil markings that affect parts of text. Decaying of leather. Some dampstaining and slight toning. Minimal edgewear. Good condition. (BR-12-5) .

        Oeuvres Meslees (meslées) de Mr. De La Grange

      The Hague / A La Haye: Chez Chrles Le Vier, 1724. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. First printing, 1724. 8vo, bound in full later 18th century maroon morocco gilt, with leather bookplate of well known American book collector Robert Hoe, whose collection was sold at auction in 1912, pp. (8) 157 (3), a number of small vignette copperplates. Very good clean copy. Lagrange-Chancel was heralded as a dramatist who would be a worthy successor to Racinet, when he published a series of odes called the Philippiques in 1720, accusing Philip the Duke of Orleans of terrible crimes including incest with his own daughter. Consequently he was thrown into jail, and it was while he was incarcerated that the current volume was published. He escaped, heading to Spain, Sardinia and Italy, only returning to France upon the death of the duke. His literary career never recovered. The catalogue of Robert Hoe's library features a number of books by LaGrange-Chancel but notably not this title.

Ook wegen en topografie zijn aangegeven.Deze invloedrijke kaart werd gedurende de 18de-eeuw door andere cartografen meermaals gebruikt als voorbeeld voor andere kaarten.Prijs: ?1.250,-.

        Portugese synagoge - Bernard Picart, 1724-1727.

      INWIJDING VAN DE PORTUGESE SYNAGOGE TE AMSTERDAM?La dedicace de la Synagogue des Juifs Portugais, a Amsterdam?. Kopergravure vervaardigd door Bernard Picart voor C?r?monies et Co?tumes religieuses van Jean Frederic Bernard, uitgegeven te Amsterdam 1724-1737. Afm. (plaatrand) 34 x 41,7 cm.Opmerkelijk aan de jaren zestig en zeventig van de zeventiende eeuw in Amsterdam was dat er enorme, monumentale kerken voor de andere geloofsrichtingen dan de publieke kerk werden gebouwd. Zo verscheen aan het Singel bij de Haarlemmersluis de prachtige Nieuwe Lutherse Kerk, ontworpen door Adriaan Dortsman. Ook de Joden bouwden in deze periode grote, vanaf de straat duidelijk zichtbare kerkgebouwen: de Grote Hoogduitse Synagoge en de Portugees-Isra?litische Synagoge, beide ontworpen door Elias Bouman, resp. in 1669 en 1671, voor de Asjkenazisch- en Sefardisch-joodse gemeenschappen in Amsterdam. Het waren de eerste synagogen in West-Europa waarvan niet alleen het interieur maar ook het exterieur fraai en indrukwekkend waren.De Portugese synagoge te Amsterdam was ge?nspireerd op een houten model van de Tempel van Jeruzalem die door rabbijn Jacob Juda Leon (1602-1675) was vervaardigd. Op 2 augustus 1675 werd de nieuwe synagoge gedurende acht dagen feestelijk ingewijd. Ieder jaar wordt deze inwijding nog herdacht.Op de gravure van Picart zien we de plechtigheden tijdens het inwijden van de Portugese synagoge. De hele ruimte staat vol met bezoekers. Op het podium in het midden staat de chazan, de voorzanger, om voor te lezen uit de Thora. Hij houdt de wetslezing ter herdenking van de inwijding. Op de achtergrond de hechal, de kast waarin de Thorarollen worden bewaard.Prijs: ?750,-.

Erste Ausgabe dieser seltenen und reich illustrierten literarischen Wunderkammer mit Kapiteln über die neuesten Erfindungen der Optik, die Entdeckung unbekannter Tiere, den Gebrauch von Öfen, den Anbau von Pflanzen, das Falten von Servietten etc. - Mit Abbildungen von einem Teleskop, Ofen, Lampen, Kamin, Beutel - und Faultier, einer Harfe, verschiedener Ordenstrachten, Werkzeuge etc. - Wer sich hinter dem Pseudonym Poliander verbirgt, ob ein Stadtmann/Städter/Stetter oder ein Gramann/Graumann - beides ist sprachlich möglich, ist bis jetzt ungeklärt; sicher aber ist der Poliander der Analecta nicht mit Johann Gramann (1487-1541) identisch, wie im KVK behauptet wird. Zur Erscheinungsweise und zur Kollation: Die Titel der einzelnen Teile sind jeweils datiert (davon existieren Varianten; in der BSB ist der Titel des ersten Teiles 1720 datiert, bei uns 1719). Jeweils 9 Teile (als ?Gänge? bezeichnet) wurden zu Faszikeln zusammengefaßt und mit Titeln in Rot und Schwarz versehen. Der zum ersten Teil ist einblattgroß, der zum zweiten doppelblattgross und datiert 1721 (hier zerschnitten eingebunden), der zum dritten Teil (1724 datiert) fehlt in unserem Exemplar. Bei uns ist am Anfang dafür ein 1722 datierter doppelblattgr. Titel in Schwarzdruck eingebunden (nicht im VD 18), von dem nicht anzugeben ist, für welchen Teil er gedruckt wurde (eventuell war er auch als Gesamttitel gedacht). Das gestochene Frontispiz (?Werner f.?) ist zusammen mit dem dem Titel des ersten Faszikels in Rot und Schwarz auf einem Blatt gedruckt. Mit der Lage F beginnt der 9. Gang, der einzige ohne Frontispiz. Diese Lage besteht aus 6 Blättern (wie im Exemplar der BSB). Das Exemplar im VD 18 hat eine Lage F mit 8 Blättern, deren erstes ein Frontispiz in Kupferstich ist (vermutlich unser Frontispiz vor dem ersten Faszikel). - Stellenweise leicht gebräunt und wenig fleckig, etwas angestaubt und berieben, insgesamt aber recht gut erhalten.

Quintus Curtius Rufus was a Roman historian, writing probably during the reign of the Emperor Claudius (41-54 AD) or Vespasian. His only surviving work, De Rebus Gestis Alexandri Magni, or Historiae Alexandri Magni, is a biography of Alexander the Great in Latin in ten books, of which the first two are lost, and the remaining eight are incomplete. His work is fluidly written, and while superficial study reveals the authors errors regarding geography, chronology and technical military knowledge, a detailed study reveals his focusing instead on character and protests against those Emperors of his times whom he considered tyrants.
