Les trois derniers volumes contiennent les nombreuses pièces justificatives et les preuves et ont été mis en ordre par Lobineau ; ces dernières constituent les archives publiques de la ville. Reliures de l'époque en plein veau brun. Dos à six nerfs ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés, ainsi que de pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge. mors fendus et la pluspart des coiffes manquantes. Toutes tranches rouges. La somme la plus monumentale et sans conteste le plus bel ouvrage publié sur Paris au début du XVIIIe. Bien que la mort surprit l'auteur durant la rédaction de son oeuvre, celle-ci fut poursuivie par Lobineau, autre membre de la fameuse congrégation savante des bénédictins de Saint Maur, qui lui-même décéda en 1727. Cette étude d'envergure qui manquait à Paris fut à l'origine commanditée par le prévôt des marchands Jérôme Bignon et elle constitue la première histoire officielle de la capitale et une source documentaire sans précédent ; et c'est sans doute par cela que cette histoire brille d'un particulier éclat : la documentation extrèmement importante consacrée à l'histoire de Paris, outre que les auteurs font preuve d'une grande rigueur dans leur analyse et leurs hypothèses. C'est à l'issue de ce travail que Turgot prit la décision de rassembler au greffe de l'hôtel de ville une bibliothèque consacrée à la ville de Paris afin de continuer l'oeuvre des deux historiens et qui sera La bibliothèque historique de la ville de Paris. L'histoire de la ville est précédée de deux dissertations, la première par Le Roy sur les origines de l'hôtel de ville lequel fut le premier gouvernement politique de Paris, la seconde sur l'explication des antiquités trouvés à Notre-Dame.

Austria Picta 22.1 "die erste und für mehr als ein halbes Jahrhundert einzige gedruckte Karte der gesamten österreichischen Erblande" (p. 76); "Die üppige hochbarocke dekorative Ausgestaltung ist ganz auf das Haus Habsburg und die von ihm beherrschten Länder ausgerichtet: Links umranken die Porträts der habsburgischen Kaiser und Könige von Rudolf I. bis Joseph I. stammbaumartig eine Säule, die von der Büste des damals regierenden Kaisers gekrönt wird; rechts unten befindet sich der mit Allegorien ausgeschmückte Kartentitel, darüber die von Wappen der Erbländer eingefaßte Widmung an Karl VI." (p. 321) Johann Chr. Homann übernahm den Verlag nach dem Tod seines berühmteren Vaters Johann Baptist Homann. Er hat in den wenigen Jahren seiner Geschäftstätigkeit (er starb nur 6 Jahre nach seinem Vater) nur wenige Karten eigenständig erstellt, diese ist eine von -laut Sandler - 19 seiner eigenen Karten; zeigt die größte jemals erreichte Ausdehnung der Habsburgermonarchie, von Sizilien bis an die Oder, vom Ärmelkanal bis in die Walachei; alte Faltung geglättet, mit kolorierten Gebietswappen, mehrere Läsuren im Bereich der Mittelfalz und den Rändern professionell restauriert, selten.

      Mexico: Joseph Bernardo de Hogal. 1725. Octavo. Full limp vellum. 1f. (title), 11ff. (preliminary material), 78 pp. + a fine engraved plate of a Guidonian hand opposite page 52. With occasional decorative woodcut borders and head- and tailpieces. Errata list to final preliminary leaf. Pp. 56-78 contain liturgical chants, with Latin text underlaid, in square notation. Text in Spanish and Latin. Early manuscript ownership notes in black ink to verso of title including the names Albis [?Alvis], Fr. Andres [?]Cucalera, Brother Lino Cuevas y Morales, and Fr. Josephe Franco Ramos. Handstamp of "J. Felipo S. Pulido, Presbitero" to title. Binding somewhat worn and stained. Occasional foxing and staining; small tears to outer edge of final leaf; pastedowns with contemporary annotations, musical notation, and scribblings in black ink, some minor repairs; upper right corner of title and following three leaves lacking with loss of approximately 20 words. . First Edition. Scarce. RISM BVI, p. 75 (2 copies only). Somewhat better represented in Worldcat. Palau 294303 notes this as the first example of the use of Hogal's moveable music type. Intended for the novices at the Franciscan Convento Grande de N. Padre San Francisco de Mexico, the Regla offers a rare glimpse of the teaching and practice of plainchant in 18th-century Mexico. Sanchez was a preacher and Master of Novices at N. Padre, and, according to his own remarks (p. 78), not a professional musician: "The teaching of plainchant is not my profession and the writing of this guide to plainchant has cost me such effort that only the precept of obedience has sustained me until I reached a conclusion." Stevenson, Music in Mexico, p. 166. "No Neo-Hispanic polyphony was printed during the colonial epoch. Some monodic music continued to be published in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: the 1604 Quatuor Passiones by Juan Navarro, the 1725 Breve Noticia del Canto Llano by Manuel Sanchez, and the 1770 Missa Gothica seu Mozarabica et Officium itidem Gothicum edited by Francisco Lorenzana, for instance. But polyphony was not published, partly because printing of all types became inordinately expensive after 1600, and also of course because the market for some of the very difficult part-music written by such Neo-Hispanic masters as Franco and Padilla must have been quite limited." Stevenson: Music in Mexico, p. 102 Called the "Ibarra of New Spain," Joseph Bernardo de Hogal (d. 1741) was considered to be one of the finest printers in 18th-century Mexico. "Auction 23 Abstracts (lot 567)," in Dorothy Sloan Books online. A rare 18th century Mexican musical imprint.

        A discourse upon the Pharisee and Publican Wherein several weighty things are handled the twelfth edition, corrected To which is added his last sermon; as also his dying sayins [sic]

      London: John Marshall 12mo (14.7 cm, 5.75"). 166 pp. (lacking final blank f.). 1725 Uncommon early 18th-century edition of this important theological work, originally printed in 1685. All of BunyanÂ’s works, not just his PilgrimÂ’s Progress, were widely read and often reprinted in his day; this 1725 printing is described as the 12th edition, but ESTC locates only three editions (in 1704, 1705, and 1706) between the initial appearance and the present example. The 1704–25 editions are all scarce, surviving in only a few copies each. John Marshall also issued this work in the same year as the present example with a slightly different title-page, reading “Wherein several great and weighty things . . . ,” this being a copy of the issue with a cancel title-page. => The text is illustrated with one woodcut scene. A few copies are described as having a frontispiece, which would not be integral to the collation; presumably it was added later and so not original. Provenance: John Kinsman, jun., 1760; Edwin P. Farnham, 1903. Recent speckled paper wrappers. Free endpapers and first and last leaves with worm damage to edges; final blank leaf lacking. Front free endpaper and dedication page with rubber-stamped numerals (no other markings). Lower outer corners waterstained in first portion of volume; some darker stains from laid-in plant matter, with several leaves having words obscured or lost due to botanical adhesions — in the worst case, one leaf with hole affecting about 30 words from having adhered to plant matter, subsequent leaf with about 15 words obscured. Some headers just shaved but no catchwords touched. Title-page verso and back free endpaper with inked ownership inscriptions as above.

Armorial Ex Libris of "M. Flamen D' Assigny Conser. Auditeur des Comptes" front pastedown; early ownership markings in black ink and pencil to front free endpaper of Vol. I dated 1777. Vol. I: 1f.

(title), 230 pp. Binding partially split at upper joint. Tears to pp. 209-212 of Vol. I with repair and no loss to text; Vols. I and II with mild to moderate foxing to some leaves; occasional minor soiling, staining, and creasing; Vols. III and IV with some light staining, especially to upper margin, and occasional light foxing. Minor offsetting opposite titles of Vols. II and IV; very occaisional mispagination.. Second edition, considerably expanded from the first edition of 1715. Rare. Gregory-Bartlett, p. 39. Cortot, pp. 26-27. RISM BVI, I, p. 165. The Histoire de la musique was begun by Pierre Michon Bourdelot, continued by his nephew, Pierre Bonnet-Bourdelot (1654-1708), and completed and published (in Paris in 1715) by the brother of the latter, Jacques Bonnet (1644-1723). Vols. II-IV of the present edition are a reprint of the "Comparaison de la musique italienne et de la musique francaise" of J. L. Le Cerf de La Vieville (1674-1707) (Brussels, 1704; new edition, augmented,1705). The "Comparaison" was written in reply to Francois Raguenet's "Parallele des Italiens et des Francois en ce qui regarde la musique," a rejection of French music and practice in favor of Italian counterparts. "Le Cerf espoused a simple, rational, 'natural' art over one based primarily on sensual beauty, an art that finds its expression in the ideals represented in the music of Lully." Julie Anne Sadie and Albert Cohen in Grove Music Online. The present copy most likely belonged to Jean-Claude Flamen d'Assigny (1741-1827), a noted French politician, agronomist, and brother-in-law of prominent French Revolutionary general, Jean-Barthelemot Sorbier.

        Cantates Francoises a I. et II. Voix. Avec Simphonie, et sans Simphonie... Livre Premier. Prix 10 [livre sign] en blanc. [Score]. Signed by the composer

      Paris: L'Auteur, Foucault, Le Clair. [1725 or later]. Folio. Full contemporary green vellum, small dark brown leather title label gilt to spine, edges red. 1f. (title, dated 1710), 104, 1f. (Privilege General dated February 22, 1725), [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Mostly notated on two staves: voice (in various clefs) and figured bass; obbligato instruments (violins, flutes) on third staff, above, in G1 clef ("French violin clef"). Title identifies Clérambault as "Organiste de la Maison Royale de St. Loüis a St Cir, et de l'Eglise Paroissiale de saint Sulpice." Printed note to foot of title: "On trouve aux mémes adresses le deuxiéme Livre de l'Auteur Avec un Livre de Clavecin & un Livre d'Orgue." Table of contents printed to foot of last page of music. With six cantatas: L'amour piqué par une abeille, Le jaloux, Orphée, Polyphème, Médée, and L'amour et Bacchus. Composer's signature, "clerambault," to lower right corner of title and first page of music. From the collection of André Meyer, Paris. Hinges partially split. Some creases to lower outer corner; printed note to foot of title very light. Very good, wide- margined copy, with music printed from elegant type in diamond shape notation. . First Edition, later issue. Lesure p. 126. RISM C3164 (dated 1710). Hoboken 16, 40. Bibliothèque nationale de France, département Musique, VM7-168 (dated "1710" but with the privilege dated 1725 as in the present copy; this dating is somewhat misleading and it is possible that some (or all) of the 10 copies listed in RISM are actually the 1725 issue). "[Clerambault] was widely regarded as one of France's finest organists, while as a composer of French cantatas his reputation soared beyond all others... It was in his cantatas that Clerambault's most fruitful union of French and Italian styles was achieved. The French cantata as a characteristic 18th-century form had been established only a few years before the appearance of Clerambault's first volume of Cantates françoises...; in the cantatas of Morin, Bernier, Battistin and Campra were to be found the essentials of the form to which Clerambault gave the stamp of real individuality."

Bibliotheque nationale de France, departement Musique, VM7- 168 (dated "1710" but with the privilege dated 1725 as in the present copy; this dating is somewhat misleading and it is possible that some (or all) of the 10 copies listed in RISM are actually the 1725 issue). "[Clerambault] was widely regarded as one of France's finest organists, while as a composer of French cantatas his reputation soared beyond all others... It was in his cantatas that Clerambault's most fruitful union of French and Italian styles was achieved. The French cantata as a characteristic 18th-century form had been established only a few years before the appearance of Clerambault's first volume of Cantates francoises...; in the cantatas of Morin, Bernier, Battistin and Campra were to be found the essentials of the form to which Clerambault gave the stamp of real individuality."

        De causa gravitatis physica generali disquisitio experimentalis. Quae praemium à Regia Scientiarum Academia promulgatum, retulit; anno 1728. Paris, Cl. Jombert, 1728

      First Edition of George Bernhard Bilfinger's De Causa gravitatis physica generali disquisitio experimentalis (On the General Physical Cause of Gravity) - a prize winning explanation of the cause of the weight of bodies designed to check Galileo's and Edme Mariotte's theories. In so doing, Bilfinger discusses the work of many important contemporary scientists. This work won the highest award in a contest sponsored by the Paris Academy (a contest in which Bernoulli was also a contestant). At once a physicist, a mathematician, an astronomer, a botanist, and a philosopher, Bilfinger was one of the most accomplished and versatile thinkers of his time and was appointed professor of experimental and theoretical physics at St. Petersburg by Peter the Great. Although he was the pupil, friend, and defender of Christian Wolff, Bilfinger concentrated his attention on the philosophy and mathematics of Gottfried Leibniz. Bilfinger's work was of great import to Kant. In 1725 and while at the Russian Academy at St. Petersburg, Bilfinger began to study "the vis viva-problem in natural philosophy. This was the question of whether there exists 'living forces' that govern bodily motion and possibly everything else, and how to prove their quantity advanced by Leibniz. (This quantity, "mass" times speed squared, would join science as kinetic energy, the space integral of force) (Florida Philosophical Review, Vol. III, Issue 1, Summer 2003, 16). Bilfinger first examined the problem in a treatise entitled On Forces , this being the work that so inspired Kant in Prussia 18 years later. Kant in fact stated that Bilfinger's approach informed his first book, Thoughts on the True Estimation of Living Forces (1747) and noted that he always used Bilfinger's research-rule: "Truth is to be found in the harmony of opposites.". CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. (10 x 7.75 inches, 250 x 194mm). [2], 1, [40 pages], [2]. 2 foldout copperplate engravings. Beautifully rebound by Jean-Paul Laurenchet at Ateliers Laurenchet in France in modern, marbled paper covered hardboard. Red morocco, gilt-lettered spine label. Pristine condition. Complete. Handsome wide margins. Minor age toning, very slightly darker at the outer edges of the pages. Because of the brightness of the scanner light this appears worse in the scans than it is to the naked eye. A very occasional age spot. Very good + condition by any measure.

Tagli spruzzati. Spellature alle coperte. Gradevoli cartigli incisi all'inizio dei due volumi. Timbri di antica proprietà. Rarissima prima edizione francese, in piccolo formato, di un testo classico pubblicato nel 1725. Come si evince dalla meticolosa scheda di Olivier Barbier ("Dictionnaire des Ouvrages anonymes"), la paternità dell'opera è attribuita a Francis Hutcheson, mentre autore della traduzione è probabilmente Marc - Antoine Eidous (1724 - 1790), forse con la collaborazione di Guillaume Laget. Francis Hutcheson (Drumalig, Irlanda del Nord, 1694 - 1746), discendente da una famiglia di presbiteriani scozzesi, fu docente di filosofia morale all'Università di Glasgow. Seguace di Locke e insegnante e predecessore di Adam Smith, è considerato il padre dell'illuminismo scozzese, applicando le tecniche matematiche allo studio dei problemi morali.

'sGravesande (1688 - 1742) a Dutch mathematician and philosopher, is described by the DSB as "the earliest influential exponent of Newtonian philosophy in continental Europe". He spent a year in London in 1715 having been sent there as part of a Dutch mission to congratulate George I on his accession and there he made contact with the English Newtonians Desaguliers and John Keill and met Newton himself. In 1717 he was appointed professor of mathematics and philosophy at Leiden and began to prepare his Introductio ad philosophiam Newtoniam which was first published in 1720 - 21. This important and popular work reached 24 editions by 1760. See Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook, page 235: "It was a work which emphasised the experimental rather than the mathematical side of Newton's thought and as such must have introduced many throughout Europe to the basic principles of the new science."

        The West Front of Cliefden House.

      Published by Colen Campbell, London 1725 - Engraved by Henry Hulsbergh. On laid paper. Two repaired tears in the bottom margin, well outside image. From Colen Campbell's "Vitruvius Britannicus, or the British Architect" Vitruvius Britannicus is one of the great eighteenth-century English architectural works. It illustrates, in a way, the social revolution that occured in the first half of the 18th century under the governance of Robert Walpole. Noble country estates as grand as any in continental Europe appeared throughout the land. These are buildings of Classical formality and grandeur, implying familial and imperial permanence, vast, symmetrical palaces that preside over their surroundings. Colen Campbell (1676-1729) was a descendant of the Campbells of Cawdor Castle in Scotland. As an architect, he favored the Palladian style and, through his own designs and with Vitruvius Britannicus , helped establish it as the dominant style in great buildings, both public and private, in England. Cliefden House near Maidenhead was at one time a residence of Frederick, Prince of Wales, son of George II, but outlived by his father. The building burnt down in 1795.

        German Calligraphic Manuscript

      1725. CALLIGRAPHY-GERMAN. German Calligraphic Manuscript. [28] pp. Consisting of original coloured German calligraphy on heavy fortified paper. Oblong 4to., 230 x 300 mm, bound in contemporary German decorative paper over boards. Preserved in yellow half-morocco box. Augsburg: ca. 1720-1730. |~||~||~||~||~| Exceptional Early Eighteenth-Century Calligraphic Manuscript from the Augsburg area in Southern Germany. The manuscript represents an abecedarium starting with a large letter "A" and passing in order through the alphabet to "Z" on page 25. The first page consists of a Dedication for this "Vorschrifft" in German gothic text written in red ink with black pen flourishes within a red and green rectangular border. It is surrounded by painted coloured tulips and poppies connected by a dark green spray vine. Each of the following 25 pages comprises a large calligraphic gothic initial in red, blue, yellow or green. The large initials are highlighted with further intricate black ink floral designs and painted wash of reds, blues, yellows, greens and heavy China black. The final two pages consist of various upper and lower case alphabets in cursive, and the facing page displays a calligraphic Roman alphabet above a flourished Gothic alphabet and a lower case Gothic alphabet. The text, which follows each letter, consists of moral sayings and religious prayers and precepts. The decorative calligraphy and the mis-en-page of the continuous alphabet is extremely attractive and artistic in presentation. There is some show-through from black ink and very minor soiling.

        Paradise Regain'd: A Poem in Four Books to which is added Samson Agonistes

      London - J. Tonson, 1725 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A sixth edition of Milton's Paradise Regain'd: A Poem in Four Books in a contemporary calf binding. Paradise Regained is a poem by English poet John Milton, first published in 1671 by John Macock. The volume in which it appeared also contained the poet's closet drama Samson Agonistes. Paradise Regained is connected by name to his earlier and more famous epic poem Paradise Lost, with which it shares similar theological themes; indeed, its title, its use of blank verse, and its progression through Christian history recall the earlier work. However, this effort deals primarily with the temptation of Christ as recounted in the Gospel of Luke. It is generally thought that Samson Agonistes was begun around the same time as Paradise Regained but was completed after the larger work, possibly very close to the date of publishing, but there is no agreement on this. Illustrated with a frontispiece. Condition: In a contemporary calf binding with gilt borders. Externally generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Joints starting but firm. Internally generally firmly bound with generally clean pages, save for browning due to age. Overall: GOOD..

Seutter, Matthäus (The Elder): 1678?"1757, Seutter was an engraver, globe-maker and publisher. Born in Augsburg in 1685, the son of a goldsmith. Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg in 1697, apprenticed as an engraver to Johann Baptist Homann. in 1707 later he returned to Augsburg subsequently working in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in the city. He founded the Seutter publishing house and print shop in 1710, producing maps, atlases, and globes., which became a primary competitor to Homann. Very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and none of the necessary connections to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Therefore Seutter copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models (approximately 500 pieces). His "Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt' appeared in 1725 with 46 maps: the "Atlas Novus" various editions in 1728, 1730, 1736, 1742; the "Grosser Atlas" in 1734 with 131 maps, and the pocket atlas "Atlas minor in 1744 with 64 maps. After Matthäus Seutter died in 1757, his son, Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the business for five more years.
