        Printed document with the autograph signatures of both Berton ("Berton") and Trial ("Trial") as co-managers of the Paris Opéra at conclusion, with manuscript additions including a date of December 20, 1769.

      3 pp. of a bifolium. With official decorative handstamps to head. Regarding the lease of a box at the Opéra for Béatrix de Choiseul, Duchess of Gramont (1729-1794), a French salonnière (said to rival Madame de Pompadour) and distinguished bibliophile, daughter of Franz Joseph Marquis de Choiseul, Marquis of Stainville, and Marie-Louise Bassompierre, and sister of Étienne François, duc de Choiseul; she was also canoness of Remiremont. De Choiseul was summoned to the Revolutionary Tribunal in 1794 and condemned to the guillotine. Slightly worn and soiled; creased at folds; several small edge tears and stains; paper loss to blank left margin of second leaf with small burn hole to blank lower outer corner. Both Berton and Trial were prominent French composers of operatic works produced at the Paris Opéra in the mid-18th century. In 1767 they succeeded François Rebel and Francoeur as managers of the Opéra. Berton radically raised orchestral standards at the Opéra from 1755 and assiduously looked for new talent; by updating performance techniques and facilitating the arrival in Paris of Gluck and Piccinni he paved the way for those composers in France."

Nebst einer lustigen Dedication und sonderbaren Vorrede. Dergleichen verkehrten Gelehrten zur guten Lehre, und verhoffentlich daraus fliessenden Besserung;

      Gedruckt zu Freyburg auf deß Autoris eigene Kosten (d.i. Berlin, Haude) Anno 1729 - andern aber, so sich denen Studiis widmen, und noch Anfänger sind, zur getreuen Warnung, auch sonst jedermann zum Vergnügen geschrieben. Mit einem Titelkupfer. Kl-4°. Front., (19) Bll., 222 S. Halblederband mit Rückenschild und -vergoldung. - Erste Ausgabe (FdF 1748; Holzm./ Boh. III,6498). – Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt, gelegentlich leicht fleckig. - Wenn auch seine erfolgreichen, ein Genre prägenden "Gespräche im Reiche der Todten" weithin bekannter sind, gilt "Der gelehrte Narr" als das Hauptwerk von D.FASSMANN (Wiesenthal/Erzgebirge 1683 – 1744 Lichtenstadt/Böhmen). Vordergründig eine Satire bzw. Schmähschrift auf PAUL von GUNDLING, den umfassend Gelehrten, der dennoch hilf- und wehrlos ein erbärmliches Leben als Hofnarr beim Tabakskollegium FRIEDRICH WILHELM I. VON PREUßEN fristete, ist die Schrift weit mehr ein Abgesang auf die Gelehrsamkeit spätbarocker Prägung, die in grenzenloser Anhäufung jedes, in Zeiten beginnender Aufklärung als unnütz betrachteten Wissens ihr Genügen fand. FASSMANN selbst ist Vertreter einer Zwischenzeit, polyhistorisch gelehrt und seit 1726 in ähnlicher Rolle wie GUNDLING am preußischen Hof, durchschaute er doch die herrschenden Zustände und kritisierte sie geschickt verkleidet in seinen Veröffentlichungen, weshalb er heute „zu den ersten bürgerlich-publizistischen Kritikern der absolutistischen Regierungen“ (NDB 5,S.28) gezählt wird. „Der Gefahr, wie sein Gegenpart GUNDLING zu enden, sämtliche Ämter waren ihm nach dessen Tod 1731 übertragen worden, entzog er sich fluchtartig. Aus ikonographischer Sicht bemerkenswert ist das Titelkupfer, in dem die Unterscheidung zwischen alter und neuer Zeit „markant ins Bild“ tritt. Sämtliche traditionell dem Gelehrten zugeschriebenen Insignien „Studio, Perücke, Hausmantel, Feder und Tintenfaß – sind hier geschlossen vertreten. Hinzu kommen bocksbeinige Satyrn und ungezogene Affen, die als satirische Komponenten auf das Werk verweisen.“ (A.Kosenina, Der gelehrte Narr. Gelehrtensatire seit der Aufklärung, Göttingen 2004, S.31). In ähnlicher Aufmachung trat noch 1765 GOTTSCHED dem Studenten GOETHE bei dessen Antrittsbesuch entgegen; schon dieser Auftritt im Gelehrtenhabit diskreditierte den „Altvater“ bei dem jungen Mann (vgl. die Schilderung in Dichtung und Wahrheit).

        The morals of princes:

      London: printed for T. Worrall,, 1729. or, an abstract of the most remarkable passages contain'd in the history of all the emperors who reign'd in Rome. With a moral reflection drawn from each quotation. Written originally in Italian. Done into English by William Hatchett, Gent. Octavo (195 x 121 mm). Early tree calf, spine richly gilt in compartments, red morocco label, red edges. Engraved frontispiece by van der Gucht, title page in red and black, pp. ix–xvi contain a list of subscribers. Extremities rubbed, spine chipped at head, front joint tender, a sprinkling of worm in lower outer corner of final gatherings touching text but the sense recoverable, occasional spotting, still a very good copy. First edition in English of Comazzi's La morale de' principi osservata (first published Vienna, 1689), translated by the dramatist William Hatchett. Comazzi's moral history of the Roman emperors has a cynical, satirical bent; the original was placed on the Index in 1716. The translation is dedicated to the 3rd Duke of Bedford, scion of the famous Bedford Whigs, in the year he reached his majority, and the title carries the pointed motto "Regis ad exemplum". The subscribers' list notes two copies taken by the actress and author Eliza Haywood, with whom Hatchett lived and collaborated for at least 20 years beginning about 1724, and one by Henry Fielding, in whose theatrical company both Haywood and Hatchett performed.

        [MUTEFERRIKA - PERSIA] Târîh-i seyyâh der beyân-i zuhûr-i Afgânîyan ve sebeb-i inhidâm-i binâ-i devlet-i Sâhân-i Safevîyân [i.e. The History of the Afghan Wars in Persia and the Reasons of the Fall of the Safavid Empire]

      Istanbul: Typ. Of Ibrahim Muteferrika, 1142 H. [1729]. [7], 97 leaves (numbered in Eastern Arabic system). 20,5x14,5 cm. Black stamps on the first and the last leaves, short manuscript notes in Ottoman Turkish on leaves 1, 7 and 8. 19th century dark brown quarter sheep with black pebbled paper boards. Binding slightly rubbed on extremities, repaired on hinges, otherwise a very good copy. First edition in Ottoman Turkish. This is the third of seventeen 'Turkish incunabulas', published in the first year of the existence of the printing house by the legendary Basma Khane of Ibrahim Muteferrika (1674-1745) in Istanbul - the first typography of moveable Arabic type under Islamic auspices. Opened by permission of Sultan Ahmet III in 1727, Basma Khane was the first of its kind in the Islamic world, and published 17 titles in 22 volumes between 1729 and 1742, including geographies, histories, and dictionaries. Hungarian-born, Müteferrika was educated as a Calvinist minister and converted to Islam after being enslaved by the Ottomans between 1692-93. Well-educated and fluent in Latin, he often acted as an editor and translator of the books published in his typography. Printed with a run of 1200 copies, ''Târîh-i seyyâh der beyân-i zuhûr-i Afgânîyan…'' became the third book published by Muteferrika. Written by Tadeusz Krusinsky, a Jesuit missionary who served as a secretary-interpreter to the bishop of Isfahan in 1707 - ca.1725, the book is one of the most important chronicles unfolding the history of the late Safavid Iran - one of the biggest rivals of the Ottoman Empire at the time, and the history of the Afghan Invasion of Iran and the fall of Isfahan in 1722 which the author witnessed. The Turkish translation was made from Krusinski's ''Relatio de mutationibus Regni Persorum'' (Rome, 1727) - a highly popular book which was quickly published in English (1727), French (1728), Italian (1730), and German (1732). The book is ''a Turkish translation of the history of Iran written in Latin by the Jesuit missionary Jan Tadeusz Krusiński (1675-1751). The work, whose title can be translated as A voyager's description on the apparition of the Afghans and on the reasons of the Safavid Empire being undermined, focuses on the Afghan invasion of 1722 which led to the fall of the Safavid dynasty, but also offers an overview on the historical processes of early 18th-century Safavid Iran. The publication of this work was made actual not only the vicinity of Iran to the Ottoman Empire, but also by the historical turn reorganizing the relations of power in the region and triggering the intervention of the Ottomans as well. This may have been the reason that among the first Turkish incunabula this was the work published in the highest number of copies. This publication also offers an early example of copyright disputes, as Krusiński considered the Turkish translation as his own work, while Müteferrika, who does not mention his name in the printed version, suggests himself to be the translator'' (The mysterious printer Ibrahim Muteferrika and the beginnings of Turkish book printing/ Library of Hungarian Academy of Sciences online). ''The printing press is known to have existed in the Middle East amongst non-Muslims as early as the 16th century but it was not until 1729 that a Muslim, Ibrahim Müteferrika, began printing texts via this method. Müteferrika, based in Istanbul, secured a firman (edict) in 1727 from Sultan Ahmed III permitting him to print works of a non-religious nature. Müteferrika's press, called the Dârü't-tıbâ'ati'l-ma'mûre, but more widely known as the Basma Khāne (printing house), would print 23 texts on grammar, history and other non-religious subjects over the course of its history. In total, Müteferrika produced approximately 13,000 physical volumes. The Basma Khāne operated between 1729 and 1742 though its initial reception was greeted with trepidation. Calligraphers were the principal opposition to the printing press after the ferman had been issued. Calligraphy was seen as a pious and devotional act whereas the printing press, with its ability to mass produce texts, was regarded as a threat to the livelihood of many calligraphers. The Basma Khāne laid the foundations for the development of moveable printing presses in other Muslim countries, e.g., the Bulaq Press in Egypt. These presses, in response to a host of events and developments in the nineteenth century, allowed for the increased printing and dissemination of newspapers, journals, books and ephemera in the region'' (McGill University Library).

        The morals of princes: or, an abstract of the most remarkable passages contain'd in the history of all the emperors who reign'd in Rome. With a moral reflection drawn from each quotation. Written originally in Italian. Done into English by William Hatchett, Gent.

      London: printed for T. Worrall, 1729 - Octavo (195 x 121 mm). Early tree calf, spine richly gilt in compartments, red morocco label, red edges. Extremities rubbed, spine chipped at head, front joint tender, a sprinkling of worm in lower outer corner of final gatherings touching text but the sense recoverable, occasional spotting, still a very good copy. Engraved frontispiece by van der Gucht, title page in red and black, pp. ix–xvi contain a list of subscribers. First edition in English of Comazzi's La morale de' principi osservata (first published Vienna, 1689), translated by the dramatist William Hatchett. Comazzi's moral history of the Roman emperors has a cynical, satirical bent; the original was placed on the Index in 1716. The translation is dedicated to the 3rd Duke of Bedford, scion of the famous Bedford Whigs, in the year he reached his majority, and the title carries the pointed motto "Regis ad exemplum". The subscribers' list notes two copies taken by the actress and author Eliza Haywood, with whom Hatchett lived and collaborated for at least 20 years beginning about 1724, and one by Henry Fielding, in whose theatrical company both Haywood and Hatchett performed.

        Urbs Domingo in Hispaniola

      Artist: Aa van der Peter ca ; issued in: Leiden; date: ca1729 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 28 x 34,5; - description: Map shows the city St. Domingo in Hispaniola as bird s eye view. With decorative offshore ships.; - vita of the artist: Pieter van der Aa ( 1659 - 1733) was a Dutch publisher best known for preparing maps and atlases, though he also printed pirated editions of foreign bestsellers and illustrated volumes. He also printed many maps that were often out of print, which he reissued. Some of his most popular maps were of the African continent, detailing locations such as Morocco and Madagascar. Many of his later works were printed for the general public in French and Dutch.Pieter van der Aa began his career at Leiden in 1683 as a Latin trade publisher, publishing classical texts pertaining to medicine and science. As he progressed, he began to publish atlases and maps, compiling numerous multi-volume collections of works. His ambition to become Leiden's most famous printer was fulfilled in 1715 with his appointment to head printer for the city and its university. One of Pieter van der Aa's largest compilations relates to the history of Italy and Sicily, an area of immense personal interest. Though he took credit for many of his compilations, several, such as the Dutch collection of travels to the East and West Indies, were admittedly simple improvements to others' works.

        Wunder-voller Schauplatz der Heiligen Märtyrer, Und zwar vornehmlich Der um der Wahrheit und des Namens Christi willen auf allerley grausame Weise Getödteten Kinder, Von Unmündigen an, bis auf Fünffzehn-jährige, Nebst einem kurtzen Anhang von den Trübsalen und Verfolgungen der Gläubigen durch alle Secula N. Testaments (.) Von Friedrich Eberhard Collin.

      Frankfurt am Main: Dominicus von Sand 1729 - (56), 664, 183, (1) Seiten. Frakturdruck. OHNE den doppelseitigen Kupferstich. Rot-schwarzer Titel mit Druckermarke (Schiff mit Wind im Heck erreicht Hafen, unten Monogramm des Druckers) Friedrich Eberhard Collin (1684-1727) war ein pietistischer Hofprediger zu Lobenstein. Eine Verfasserbiographie beinhaltet sein posthum erschienenes Werk 'Der Sieg der ersten Blut-zeugen Jesu Christi (.)'. Collins, der als Kleinkind mit seinen Eltern aus dem von den Franzosen belagerten Geburtsort Worms fliehen musste, studierte in Gießen und Jena Theologie bevor er Prediger dreier Gemeinden bei Wertheim wurde. Dieses Amt übte er wohl mit besonderer Wachsamkeit gegenüber seinen 'Schäfchen' aus, führte er doch penibel Buch über deren Namen, Kinder, Besitz geistlicher Drucke, etc. (Zu seiner nicht immer einfachen Zeit in Wertheim, vgl. auch Ritschl II, 539). 1723 wurde er vom Dienst suspendiert, tauchte jedoch schon im Folgejahr wieder als Schuldirektor auf, bevor ihn, ein weiteres Jahr später, der Graf Heinrich XV. Reuß zu Lobenstein zu seinem Hofprediger machte. In seine Zeit als Schulleiter fällt auch die Entstehung des vorliegenden Werkes, dessen Widmung er im Mai 1725 unterzeichnet. - Collins Werk ist exemplarisch für die durch den Pietismus hervorgebrachte moralische Erbauungsliteratur der Frühaufklärung. Theologische Literatur, zumal solche, die der breiter werdenden Leserschaft säkularer Werke eine starke religiöse Orientierungen des moralischen Handelns entgegensetzt, dominiert weiterhin das Buchwesen und befriedigt einen mit dem Pietismus steigenden Bedarf. Der Märtyer-Schauplatz teilt darüber hinaus in seiner Thematik und theatralen Metaphorik auch Tropen des barocken Dramas. Das Theater, das sich im 17. Jahrhundert auch als Werkzeug der konfessionellen Identitätsstiftung und Propagandamittel etablierte, will nicht die Realität abbilden, sondern präsentiert eine ständehierarchisch strukturierte und heilsgeschichtlich perspektivierte Welt, konzipiert als Theatrum mundi. Dazu gehören wesentlich die Märtyrerfiguren als erbauliche Exempel. Die inszenierte Atrocitas dient hierin schon bei Andreas Gryphius und anderen Dichtern der Mäßigung und Affektkontrolle des Rezipienten. - Der drastische Kupferstich, der durch Soldaten an Kindern verübte Gräueltaten zeigt, FEHLT. Eine Kopie des Stiches liegt bei. - Pergamenteinband etwas angeschmutzt und an den Innendeckeln stellenweise etwas gelöst. Rücken mit schwindendem handschriftlichen Rückentitel entrundet und vom Buchblock gelöst, Schnabelbildung am Frontschnitt. Innengelenke etwas abgeplatzt, das erste und letzte Blatt jeweils teilweise gelöst. Papier bis auf wenige schwache Braunflecken oder unmerkliche Spuren nur marginal färbender Wasserflecken gut erhalten. Trotz aller Alterspuren ein solides Exemplar des inhaltlich bemerkenswerten und recht seltenen Werkes. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1001 8° (18 x 10,5 cm) Pergamentband der Zeit mit durchgezogenen Bünden und rotgefärbtem Schnitt.
