        Ensemble de deux manuscrits du XVIIIe siècle concernant les évêques de Chalons-en-Champagne

      [Chalons-en-Champagne, XVIIIe siècle] - 2 volumes in-4 brochés, dont un sous emboîtage toilé gris moderne, encre sur papier, sans couverture (premiers et derniers f. frottés, qq. rousseurs, coins arrondis). Importante réunion de deux études manuscrites et très probablement inédites. 1. Eloges historiques des évêques de Chaalons, pour servir d'introduction à l'histoire ecclésiastique de ce diocèse. [Chalons-en Champagne, en 1731 et 1733]. In-4, 150 p. [i.e. 152, les n° de p. 41-42 employés 2 fois], [40] f., [2] f. in-12 insérés. Bien plus qu'un simple catalogue d'évêques, ce manuscrit est riche d'anecdotes sur chaque épiscopat. L'on peut le dater assez précisément, parce que le dernier évêque signalé est Nicolas-Charles de Saulx-Tavannes, "qui en remplit actuellement le siège". Les 3 derniers f. renferment une suite d'"Emblèmes des évêques de Chaalons", qui cesse après le 24e évêque, laissant supposer un manque. Ce manuscrit peut être rapproché de deux autres conservés à la Bibliothèque de Châlons-en-Champagne, attribués au curé Pierre Garnier (Fonds Cathédrale LI 132 ; Réserve MS 253). La pièce de titre de son emboîtage porte le nom dudit P. Garnier. - 2. Catalogue des évêques de Chaalons en Champagne. [Début XVIIIe siècle ? Sur papier d'Angoumois produit par P. Jeudy]. [39 ff.]. Concerne les évêques jusqu'à F. Vialard de Herse en 1642 ; à la fin, il est question du jubé de la cathédrale (1664) et de son incendie (1668). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      London: various publishers, 1731. First editions of Achilles, The Universal Passion, Gustavus Vasa, Edward and Eleonora and The Tragedy of Tragedies, second edition of Woman's Revenge and the third edition of The Toy-Shop. Title page of The Universal Passion printed in red and black. With 2 engraved frontispieces. Octavo. Recent paneled calf to style, top edge brown, original endpapers. Boards slightly sprung, occasional foxing; an excellent copy. First editions of Achilles, The Universal Passion, Gustavus Vasa, Edward and Eleonora and The Tragedy of Tragedies, second edition of Woman's Revenge and the third edition of The Toy-Shop. Title page of The Universal Passion printed in red and black. With 2 engraved frontispieces. Octavo. First editions of Achilles, The Universal Passion, Gustavus Vasa, Edward and Eleonora and The Tragedy of Tragedies, second edition of Woman's Revenge and the third edition of The Toy-Shop (full details below). A collection of seven plays, including four comedies, two tragedies and an opera, owned by the actor and playwright David Garrick (1717-1779), with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Garrick moved to London in 1737 and wrote his first play, Lethe, in 1740. With a contemporary handwritten list of contents to the first blank (not in Garrick's hand). The works include Fielding's Tragedy of Tragedies, a reworking of his scarce 1730 work Tom Thumb, and his only play to feature a frontispiece; which is after his friend, William Hogarth. This collection also includes Brooke's tragedy, Gustavus Vasa, which was the first play to be banned by the Licensing Act of 1737, and The Toy-Shop, a satirical farce by Robert Dodsley, with whom Garrick had correspondence in later years. Garrick had an extensive library "of play-texts which served both to enhance Drury Lane's repertory and to satisfy his bibliomania" (ODNB). In 1780 his estate bequeathed 1,300 individual and collected plays to the British Museum; which constituted 90 per cent of all English plays in the Museum until the arrival of King George III's Library in 1828. This work was not donated at that time however, with a note marking the purchase of the book during the sale of Garrick's library by "Mr Saunders in Fleet Street" on the 30 April 1823, to the second blank.   a) Dodsley, Robert, The Toy-Shop, A Dramatick Satire, printed for Lawton Gilliver, 1735; b) [Fielding, H.] The Tragedy of Tragedies, J. Roberts, 1731; c) [Bullock, C.] Woman's Revenge: or, a Match in Newgate. J. Roberts, 1728; d) Gay, J. Achilles. for J. Watts, 1733; e) [Miller, J.] The Universal Passion. for J. Watts, 1737; f) Brooke, H. Gustavus Vasa. for Dodsley, 1739; g) Thomson, [J.] Edward and Eleonora. for the Author, 1739.

        Vieyra impugnado por la Madre Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Religiosa del Orden de San Geronimo, de la Ciudad de Mexico, y defendido por la Madre Sor Margarita Ignacia, Religiosa de San Agustin.

      Imprenta de Antonio Sanz, Madrid 1731 - "A Polemic Work By Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz Against a Famous Jesuit Preacher". 8vo., contemporary vellum with remainders of ties. Woodcut head and tailpieces, woodcut initials. Marginal notes. Contents: Antonio Vieyra. Sermon del mandato en la capilla Real, año de 1650, p. 1-64 ; Crisis sobre un sermon de un orador grande, entre los mayores, que la Madre Soror Juana llamo respuesta, por las gallardas soluciones con que responde à la facundia de sus discursos, p. 65-118; Apologia a favor del Reverendissimo Padre Antonio Vieyra de la Compañia de Jesus. en la qual se desvanece, y convence el Tratado, que con nombre de Crisis escriviò contra èl la Reverenda Señora Sor Juana Inès de la Cruz. / escrita en lengua portuguesa por la Madre Sor Margarita Ignacia, Religiosa de San Agustin. ; traducida en castellano por el maestro Iñigo Rosende y Lozano, Presbytero, p. 119-435; Oracion funebre en las exequias del Reverendissimo Padre Antonio Vieyra. / dixola el Ilustrissimo, y Reverendissimo Señor Don Manuel Cayetano de Sousa., p. 436-509. Contains Vieira’s sermon and Sor Juana’s letter published together for the first time in Spanish plus the text of Luis Gonçalves Pinheiro S.J. written under the pseudonym of Sor Margarida Ignacia, translated by Iñigo Rosende. The latter was originally published in Portuguese in 1727 (Lisboa Occidental: na Officina de Bernardo da Costa, 1727). This book covers a very important theological debate. Elias Trabulse has written: ‘Of all the works by Sor Juana Inés, none had more repercussions or stirred up more polemics in its time than the ‘Carta Atenagórica’ [Crisis de un sermón], In her letter Sor Juana criticized the position of the famous Jesuit preacher, father Vieira, on the question of the ‘fineza’ of Jesus Christ, that is, that the most important gift that Jesus Christ had given mankind was the command of loving one another. Sor Juana defended instead the idea that Jesus Christ’s ‘fineza’ was that of not intervening in human affairs. This provoked a great theological debate in America and Spain reflected in this book. Both Gonçalves Pinheiro and Rosende were staunch defenders of Vieira’s position. Sor Juana’s letter was published in 1690 by the Bishop of Puebla without her knowledge. Several interpretations have been put forward to explain why the Bishop did so. It has been suggested that the Bishop’s admonition of Sor Juana in his famous introduction to her Carta to leave her literary pursuits and concentrate on being a nun, ‘God’s servant’, was influential in bringing about her withdrawal from public life. The theological debate that surrounded Sor Juana’s letter reflects the misogynistic hostility to the idea that a nun should dare to opine on theological matters. * Palau 65284; Elías Trabulse, La guerrra de las finezas.

        Schoole der Jooden, begrypende het geheele Joodsche Geloof.

      Rotterdam Jan Daniel Beman 1731 - 8vo (15.8 x 9.3 cm). pp. [14], 548, 44, with 5 hand-coloured engravings heightened with gold, all folding with tissue guards except the additional title. Contemporary calf, covers with gilt border lines, corner pieces and rich gilt ornamental decoration in the centre with the star of David, spine with raised bands gilt in compartments, red morocco label lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt; head of spine chipped, spine and hinges rubbed, hinges weak (upper hinge starting), ink? stain to fore edge not affecting the pages. Lovely example of this important work, with plates in bright colours and heightened with gold. In unusual binding featuring the star of David. The four folding plates depict scenes of Jewish life: a Torah service, a Seder, the Sukkot festival and a wedding. This copy was a special commission in colour, extremely rare for this title. Professor of Hebrew in Basel for 39 years, Johannes Buxtorf (1564 – 1629) was considered the leading Protestant expert on Hebrew at his time and came to be known as 'Master of the Rabbis.' His main work, Juden Schul, was first published in German in 1603, followed by the Latin version Synagoga Judaica. The work is a thorough description of Judaism as practised in Germany at the time and became valuable for its descriptive details. It also gives a history of Jewish thought, from biblical times to the 17th century. It is in this work that Buxtorf gives an interpretation of the relations between religions through a dialogue between a Jew and a Christian, where the latter answers to the Jew's attacks on Christianity. This work voices Buxtorf's own attitude towards the Jews which was, overall, a negative one; and although quoting various other literary works about Judaism, his speech was clearly biased. This fine copy is the third Dutch edition, with some Latin and Hebrew text. The four engravings were realised for the first Dutch edition in 1694 by Jan Luyken (1649 – 1712), a Dutch poet, illustrator and engraver. We could trace no other copies of this edition in colour.

About BARTHOLOMEW MASTRIUS (from Wikipedia): ******Bartholomew Mastrius (Bartholomaeus, Bartolomeo Mastri) (b.1602 in Meldola, d.1673 in Meldola) was an Italian Conventual Franciscan philosopher and theologian. He acquired a profound knowledge of scholastic philosophy and theology, being deeply versed in the writings of Duns Scotus. As a controversialist he was harsh and arrogant towards his opponents, mingling invective with his arguments. His opinions on some philosophical questions were fiercely disputed by many of his contemporaries and especially by Matthew Ferchi and the Irish Franciscan John Punch. He was one of the most prominent writers of his time on philosophy and theology. His works shed light on some of the difficult questions in Scotistic philosophy and theology.****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This 4 volume set is large and very heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges.

He acquired a profound knowledge of scholastic philosophy and theology, being deeply versed in the writings of Duns Scotus. As a controversialist he was harsh and arrogant towards his opponents, mingling invective with his arguments. His opinions on some philosophical questions were fiercely disputed by many of his contemporaries and especially by Matthew Ferchi and the Irish Franciscan John Punch. He was one of the most prominent writers of his time on philosophy and theology. His works shed light on some of the difficult questions in Scotistic philosophy and theology.****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This 4 volume set is large and very heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges.

        Kupfer-Bibel, in Welcher Die Physica Sacra, Oder Beheiligte Natur-Wissenschafft Derer in Heil[Ige] Schrifft Vorkommenden Natürlichen Sachen.

      Christian Ulrich Wagner Augsburg and Ulm -1735 1731 - First edition. 4 vol. Folio (3.8 x 2.5 cm). Engraved frontispiece, 2 mezzotint portraits, 760 engraved plates by Füssli and others, the rainbow in plate 66 coloured by hand. Contemporary red morocco gilt; neat repairs to extremities. Finely bound set of a masterpiece of German baroque engraving. Johann Jakob Scheuchzer (1672 – 1733) was a professor of mathematics and a polymath with a particular interest in fossils. His monumental Physica Sacra is a detailed explication of events in the Bible in terms of physics, medicine, and natural history. The work is so profusely illustrated with copper-plate engravings that it became known as the copperplate Bible. Each illustration references a specific book, chapter and verse of the 1611 edition of the King James Bible Scheuchzer's grudging recognition that fossils were the remains of sea animals and that the biblical time frame needed extension was a step on the way to Lyell and Darwin. (University of Wales). Scheuchzer's work also inspired an art exhibit at the University of Massachusetts – Dartmouth in 2007/8: Science, Religion, Art. The organisers noted that: 'A lifelong scholar, Scheuchzer's pursuits of knowledge were wide-ranging and diverse, from science to medicine to paleontology. Like many scientists of the late 17th and early 18th century, Scheuchzer held to the belief that the Old Testament was a factual account of the history of the earth. In a period before public museums, Scheuchzer presented a seductive view of an imaginary world, viewed through lush frames depicting secondary symbols, plants, animals, heads and other objects, providing the viewer rich material for an inspired vision of the interaction between the natural and the divine powers.'

        Vitruvius Britannicus, or the British architect, containing the plans, elevations, and sections of the regular buildings, both public and private in Great Britain.

      London The Author -31-67-71 1731 - 5 volumes in 2, folio, volumes 1-3 later editions, volumes 4 & 5 first editions, engraved titles in all but volume 3 (that in red and black), titles of volumes 1 & 2 in third state without imprints, titles and text all in English and French, engraved dedications in all but volumes 2 & 3, volumes 4 & 5 with lists of subscribers, 491 engraved plates on 385 sheets ( lacking as usual the double-page plate of Umberslade at end of volume 3), including 91 double-page plates and 5 quadruple, title very lightly soiled and some occasional light offsetting but generally an excellent clean example. Contemporary mottled calf; a little rubbed, rebacked preserving old red and black roan labels, some corners repaired. The finest work of country house illustration in Great Britain. Superb perspective views and plans of all the great mansions. The first volume of Vitruvius Britannicus, appearing in the same year as Leoni's Palladio, was the earliest manifestation of the new Palladian revival - it was, in fact, Campbell who kindled the flames of Burlington's interest. The continuation of the series under Woolfe and Gandon (vols. 4 & 5) belongs to a much later phase of Palladianism. The five volumes together illustrate the evolution of the English country house from the great palace to the smaller villa. Vitruvius Britannicus is indispensable for the study of 17th and 18th-century architecture in England, and it occupies its own special place in architectural history as the book which established Palladian architecture as the approved style for Britain in the 18th century. Colen Campbell issued the first three volumes between 1715 and 1725, while the Woolfe and Gandon volumes of 1767 and 1771 are a continuation illustrating work by Burlington, Kent, Ware, John Wood, Chambers, Adam and Paine. They contain in all 385 large engraved illustrations, plans and sections of palaces, country houses, government offices and churches designed by architects from Inigo Jones onwards, with extensive coverage of Wren and Vanbrugh and of Campbell's own designs in the new English Palladian style.

        De Aortae polypo epistola medica. Edita ab illustrissimo viro Alexandro Knips-Macoppe.

      Brixiae : Sumptibus Caroli Gromi, 1731, (1), 88 pp., 1 Holstichvignette und 1 mehrfach gefalt. Kupfertafel, Pappband d.Zt. Vollständiger Titel: "De aortae polypo epistola medica Carolo Patino [...], qua ejusdem abditissimum morbum a Polypo arteriam magnam insidente dependere demonstratur, ac de ejus Natura, dignotione, et curatione disseritur Cum ejusdem Cadaveris historia Anatomica eventum comprobante. Edita ab Alexandro Knips-Macoppe."Alexander Knipps-Macoppe (1662-1748) "geboren zu Padua 1662, studirte in seiner Vaterstadt und in Venedig. Dann machte er im Gefolge eines Fürsten Franese die Feldzüge in Dalmatien und Spanien mit, ging später nach dem Tode des Fürsten zur Wiederaufnahme seiner Studien nach Holland, wo er in Leyden 1692 mit der "Diss. de aorte polypo" Dr. med wurde , nahm längere Zeit Aufenthalt in Paris und Montpellier und liess sich 1695 in seiner Vaterstadt nieder, wo er 1703 zum, Professor der medicinischen Botanik und zuletzt zum Lehrer der praktischen Medicin ernannt wurde. Er starb am 10. August 1748. Nicolas Scagnati berichtet in einer , Padua 174, publicirten Schrift über Knipps-Macoppe dass derselbe sich viel mit Studien über die arzneiliche Wirkung des Quecksilbers und der Mineralwässer von Albano beschäftigt habe. Ausser der oben citirten Dissertation besitzen wir noch eine Schrift von ihm "Pro emirica secta adversus theoriam medicam praelectio habita in Archilyceo Patavino, etc." (1716)." Pagel, Hirsch.-H. III, pp.558-559Alessandro Knips Macoppe (1662-1744), Professor of Practical Medicine in Padua, was an opponent of iatromechanism. Macoppe believed that it was useless to study and cure diseases in this mechanical sense and that it was enough to empirically observe natural history of diseases and the effects of therapies. Of note, Macoppe wrote a manual of "medical etiquette" that was widely diffused at his time and represented one of the first modern manuscripts about the topic.see - Berti T.,: Alessandro Knips Macoppe.

      Augsburg, Andreas Pfeffel. 1731 - 19 cm. Doppelseitiger Titel, Frontispiz, 6 Bll., 368 (2) S. mit einigen geschnittenen Kartuschen und38 teils (mehrfach) gefalteten Kupferstichen. Neues Halbleder (Hardcover), Fadenheftung. Gut. Durchgängig feuchtigkeitsfleckig. Am unteren Rand teils stärker und mit Materialverlust durch Fraß außerhalb Text und Abbildungen. Dort wo erforderlich fachmännisch mit Japanpapier stabilisiert. Bibliotheca Hortensis ; Bd.1. Beschrieben von Herrn Alexandro Blond. Und aus dem Frantzösischen ins Teutsche übersetzt durch Franz Anton Danreitter/ Hoch-Fürstl. Saltzburgischen Garten-Inspector und Cammer-Diener. 1709 erstmals anonym erschienen, wurde im Titel des dritten Drucks der seinerzeit berühmte (Garten)Architekt Alexandre LeBlond als Urheber genannt, der wesentlich zur Verbreitung des französischen Gartenstils im Ausland beitrug und unter anderem das Schloß Peterhof in St. Petersburg schuf. Erst in späteren Auflagen wird der tatsächliche Autor, Antoine Josephe Dezallier d'Argenville genannt, der wohl bei Le Blond Malunterricht genommen hatte. Während sich die Forschung weitgehend einig ist, dass Teile der Kupferstiche auf Le Blond zurückgehen, so ist umstritten, ob er auch an der Gesamtkonzeption dieses bedeutenden Gartenbuches mitwirkte. Das Frontispiz zeigt ein glorifizierendes Portrait von Danreitters Arbeitgeber, des Fürstbischofs von Salzburg. Gegenüber dem französischen Original "La Théorie et la Pratique." ist die deutsche Ausgabe im Format um die Hälfte verkleinert. Dennoch zeigt die wertvolle Ausstattung mit 38 fein gearbeiteten Kupfern den Wert der Gartenkunst zur Zeit des Erscheinens. Marie Luise Gothein widmet dem Buch allein 3 Seiten in ihrer "Geschichte der Gartenkunst", vermutet aber eher Le Blond als Autor: "Niemals wieder hat ein Buch mit so klarer faßlicher Sicherheit das Wesen eines Stiles in Lehrsätze umgegossen." Auf ihre Anmerkung, dass es den Nutzgarten etwas überheblich nur am Rande erwähnt, ist unsererseits zu bemerken, dass jenes Thema seit Erscheinens des Epoche machenden Werkes von La Quintinie "Instruction pour les Jardins fruitiers et potagers" (1.Aufl. 1690) umfassend bearbeitet war. Hans Formitti hat die Planungsrichtlinien d'Argenvilles analysiert und betont ".wie sehr ein solches Planungssystem heute für die Erforschung, Erhaltung und Dokumentation von architektonischen Gärten nutzbar ist." (Wien, 1981). Eines der wichtigsten und stilprägenden Gartenbücher des 18. Jahrhunderts, das bis 1771 viele Auflagen ( später unter dem Titel "Herrn Le Blonds neu eröfnete Gärtner-Akademie.") erlebte. [so wohl LeBlond Gärtnerei] Dochnahl 19 Wimmer/Lauterbach 248.

It has a curious mountain system, dividing the Peninsula into smaller regions" (Tibbets).

        Houtsne Figuren

      Haarlem: Izaak Enschedé, 1731. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. 4to in 8s (240 x 190 mm). Wood-engraved title (incorporating a portrait of Laurens Jansz. Koster) and 58 small wood engravings. Original blue wrappers; cloth slipcase. Provenance: Bibliothek Wünsch (label on front wrapper); Joseph Wünsch (1964 bookplate); acquired in 1985. A very rare edition containing a collection of 58 woodcuts published by Izaak Enschedé after Ostade's drawings and engraved by Izaak van der Vinne. These blocks were acquired by Izaak Enschedé when he purchased the contents of the printing firm of Christiaan Vermey of Leiden in 1724. The Haarlem printing house of Enschedé was founded by Isaac Enschedé, who registered with the guild of the booksellers of Haarlem in 1703. He published many popular prints, including XXXVI. aartige figuuren, geinventeert door Izaak van Ostade tot Haarlem. J. Enschede Excudit, a series of thirty-six numbered woodcuts showing mythical figures with human and bestial grotesque features. These woodcuts were first published by Isaak Enschedé in 1730, printed on a single sheet, and republished by him the following year. Many of these same blocks were used in the present collection, expanded with additional woodcuts from unidentified artists and adding a new woodcut title-page. Its imposition suggests that it too was produced from multiple woodcuts printed on single sheets. Izaak van der Vinne was born in Haarlem in 1665, and employed as an engraver and publisher until his death in 1740. Beyond the 36 woodblocks used in the XXXVI aartige figuuren, the publishing house Enschedé was also in possession of another forty eight woodblocks engraved by Van der Vinne. The subjects of these blocks contain a variety of animals and characters and seasons of the year typically depicted in the popular prints of the time, and some of these were incorporated into this collection. Many of the subjects collected in this edition (including 12 Gobbi) were clearly derived from Callot's "Grotesque Dwarves," his famous series of etchings which first appeared in 1616.

        A New Survey of England

      London - Printed for J. Walthoe 1731 - Ascarce early edition of Salmon's Survey of EnglandScarcesecondeditionComplete in eleven parts with all title pages. First title page states two volumes though the binder has here bound all the parts together in one volume. Bound in full vellum with blind embossed detailArmorial nameplate belonging to Geoffrey C. Hobbs to the front pastedownNathanael Salmon(16751742) was a historian and antiquary. His first two books (both 1726), which dealt with Roman antiquities to the north and east of London, were expanded into A New Survey of England, wherein the Defects of Camden are Supplied (11 parts, 17289), reissued with new title-pages in two volumes in 1731. Meanwhile he had been working on The History of Hertfordshire, describing the county and its ancient monuments, particularly the Roman (1728). This has been depreciated as merely an abridgement and continuation of Sir Henry Chauncy's Historical Antiquities of Hertfordshire (1700), but it was probably based on unpublished material left by Chauncy, augmented by Salmon's own research. Salmon's Lives of the English Bishops from the Restoration to the Revolution was published anonymously in three parts (17313), and reissued in 1733; it contains seventy-four biographies. His Antiquities of Surrey (1736) concentrates on Roman antiquities, adding some material overlooked by John Aubrey and Richard Rawlinson in their history of the county (1718). (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography)Condition: The binding is firm. There is some wear to the extremities including discolouration, bumping and some loss to the spine panel. The rear inner hinge has failed and the front inner hinge is strained. Internally the pzages are generally bright and clean and crispwith onlyoccasional mild spots. There is a small inkprivate library shelf number to the front free end paper. There is a 4 closed tear to the pull out map as shown. Overall the condition of the book is good.

        STRAORDINARIO CAMPIONARIO SETTECENTESCO DI CARTA DECORATA, STAMPATA A COLORI

      Otto parti in un volume in folio (mm. 285x202). Cc. non numerate 5, 5, 8, 5 (di cui l'ultima bianca), 8, 8, 6 (di cui l'ultima bianca), 7 (di cui l'ultima bianca), compresi gli 8 titoli di sezione. I campioni, disposti su due colonne, sono numerati a mano all'interno di ogni sezione e sottocategoria. I titoli sono stampati entro una bordura xilografica. La stessa bordura è replicata a mano nelle carte contenenti i campioni. I titoli correnti sono stampati su delle stringhe di carta applicate in alto. I campioni sono incollati sulla carta (quelli colorati da entrambe i lati sono incollati solo sul margine). Cucito ma privo di legatura. Prima ed ultima carta in parte staccate, qualche lieve traccia d'uso, ma nel complesso ottimamente conservato. Straordinario campionario di carte decorate, stampate a colori, contenente 1205 campioni di diverso tipo e stile, "adamascate, a drapo, alla brochure, a colori lisci, a radica naturale, a radica tinta, a finto sasso, a legno venato, sbruffata, a macchia di leopardo, a pelle venata, a pelle variegata, tartaruga, macchia grande a pelle, sgrinate, stampate in forma leona sopraffina, stampate sopraffine in carta di forma comune vellina, stampate sopraffine in fondo colorato, a legno sopraffino venato, a macchia di legno e venato al naturale, a radica di legno, a tralucchi sopraffina, colorate da due parti per fiori, a drapo operato, a tul ricamato, a pizzo con ricamo, marmoreggiato, con cola a pieno lustro, a porfido sopraffino, a marmo semplice al naturale, sagrinate a gouffre in diversi colori", ecc. Le carte decorate avevano all'epoca molteplici usi: venivano usate per rilegare i libri, per avvolgere i mazzi di fiori, per il retro delle carte da gioco, per le pareti delle case, per rivestire mobili e scatole, ecc. Carlo Vittorio Bertinazzi (1731-1801), originario di Torino, verso la metà del Settecento raggiunse a Parigi lo zio Carlo Antonio Bertinazzi detto Carlino (1710-1783), che era nella capitale francese dal 1741 ed era ormai diventato una celebrità come attore della Commedia dell'arte nelle vesti di Arlecchino. A Parigi Carlo Vittorio apprese l'arte della tipografia e, soprattutto, una novità d'oltralpe, allora molto in viga, quella dei papiers peints. Nel 1760 si registra per la prima volta la sua presenza a Bologna nella bottega di Via Venezia 1749-1750 (oggi Caduti di Cefalonia, 3-5), dove sarebbe rimasto tutta la vita. è quindi presumibile che l'inizio della sua attività di stampatore debba porsi in quell'anno. "La piccola arte del dipingere le carte a fiori, a drappo, a marmo e in tutte le fogge "alla francese' porta infatti a Bologna un'abilità fino ad allora ignorata, proprio negli anni in cui l'illusione di una bellezza altrimenti inaccessibile segna l'età d'oro del papier peint in Europa. Inserendosi nella produzione italiana vasta ed articolata di questo settore, la bottega Bertinazzi replica le novità che giungono d'oltralpe, ovvero carte decorate di ogni tipo, marmorizzate, dorate, goffrate, silografate, a colla... A differenza dei legni incisi desinati alla stampa dei tessuti, le dimensioni delle matrici destinate ai papiers peints poco alla volta si uniformano, fino a fissarsi in forme quadrate con lati di 50 cm. Poiché è sufficiente la semplice pressione manuale per stampare i colori sulla carta, si introduce dapprima il mazzuolo usato per le indiane e in seguito la pressa. Dotata di una leva fissata alla tavola generalmente lunga m 2,50, essa permette di modulare la pressione secondo il punto in cui si esercita la spinta, più debole per i dettagli e più forte per l'intera superficie decorata. Al numero dei colori previsti corrisponde il numero delle matrici incise, utilizzate una alla volta dopo essersi asciugato il colore precedente... La produzione bolognese di carte decorate realizzata con "stampi e torchi" nella bottega di strada Venezia adotta la tecnica dei colori a tempera mescolati con colla di pelle di coniglio, ritagli di cuoio e gesso in polvere, avvalorando l'ipotesi che fra i molti usi ricordati dagli assunti d'Arti nel 1781 fosse compreso il rivestimento delle pareti" (G.P. Tomasina, "All'uso di Francia" dalla moda all'industria. Carte decorate, papier peint e tessile stampato nel sec. XVIII: la Bottega Bertinazzi (Bologna 1760-1896), Bologna, 2001, pp. 150-151). Alla sua morte, nel 1801, Carlo Bertinazzi lascia l'attività in mano al nipote Carlo Bruera, che la porterà avanti, adeguandosi ai cambiamenti di gusto dei decenni successivi, fino alla metà del XIX secolo. Sul Bertinazzi si veda anche M. Kopylov, Papiers dominotés italiens: un univers de couleurs, de fantaisie et d'invention, 1750-1850, Paris, 2012. A parte alcuni campioni sparsi di carta che si conservano presso i Musei Civici di Modena (vedi M. Giani, Musei Civici di Modena. Carte decorate, Modena, 1993) e presso la Raccolta Bertarelli di Milano (vedi A. Milano e E. Villani, Raccolta Bertarelli. Carte colorate, Milano, 1989), l'unica sostanziale testimonianza dell'attività della bottega Bertinazzi era fino ad oggi un campionario acefalo, ma unanimemente attribuito a detta bottega, che si conserva presso la Biblioteca Poletti di Modena. Detto campionario, datato agli inizi dell'attività del Bertinazzi, non presenta alcun titolo ed è composto da sole 31 pagine recanti 348 campioni. Il confronto con il presente campionario rivela, tuttavia, una grande affinità di impaginazione e disposizione dei campioni, nonché una notevole somiglianza dei campioni stessi. Il presente campionario permette quindi non solo di confermare l'attribuzione del campionario conservato presso la Biblioteca Poletti, ma anche di approfondire enormemente la conoscenza della produzione di papiers peints di questa ditta bolognese del secondo Settecento. Infine, pare potersi affermare che, mentre il presente campionario è completo, quello della Biblioteca Poletti è forse solamente uno spezzone di un campionario più vasto. Il Prof. Pietro Baraldi del Dipartimento di Chimica dell'Università di Modena, insieme ai colleghi Maurizio Aceto e Paolo Zannini, ha recentemente sottoposto il presente campionario ad alcune analisi non invasive, su una scelta di frammenti, mediante la tecnica FORS (Fiber optics Reflectance Spectroscopy), la Fluorescenza di raggi X (XRF) e la microscopia Raman (μR). I risultati delle analisi sui colori confermano la datazione del campionario tra la fine del XVIII e l'inizio del XIX secolo, per la presenza di colori entrati in uso in quel periodo di tempo. Lo studio del Prof. Baraldi è disponibile su richiesta. Il bene è vincolato, in quanto ritenuto di interesse nazionale. .

        OBSERVATIONS ON THE CASE OF THE NORTHERN COLONIES.

      Printed for J. Roberts,, London: 1731 - 31, [1 blank] pp. Scattered foxing [generally light], bound in modern decorative wrappers. Good+. Sabin calls the pamphlet "A vindication of the Sugar Act, then pending in Parliament. This act prohibited the northern colonies from trading for sugar, etc., with the French West Indies, and required them to obtain these articles from the British West Indies or from England." The anonymous author examines the economies and trading practices of the American colonies. Carefully analyzing their economies, their trade with the French West Indies, and the advantages that such trade confers upon the French enemy, he concludes that "the dispute is only with New England," although New York and Pennsylvania have been insufficiently helpful. Maryland, Virginia and the Carolinas have not interfered with England's trade in a manner "so injurious to their Mother Country." They "therefore have a Merit with their Mother Country, which New England, New York and Pensilvania can in no wise pretend to." Sabin 56510. Kress 3956. ESTC T10214. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Catesby’s Natural History is considered to be one of the great achievements of natural science in the 18th century.In 1725, he extended his research to the Bahamas. The notebooks that he filled with drawings and the packing-cases of preserved speciments were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of heretofore unknown wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. The text recorded his personal observations, as well as theories, legends, and folktales gathered over the course of a decade.

      Johann Ludwig König,, Basel, 1731 - Herausgegeben von Caspar und Hieronymus Bauhin. 3 Teile in einem Band. Folio 37 x 24,5 cm. 6 Blatt, 663 Seiten, 2 Blatt, Seiten 665-1529, 48 Blatt Register. Mit breiter gestochener Titelbordüre und über 2400 Pflanzenholzschnitten im Text (mit den Holzschnitten der ersten Ausgabe). Erstlichen durch C. Bauhinum. gebessert, zum Andern durch H. Bauhinum. vermehrt. Nun zum vierdten mahl aufs fleißigst übersehen (u.) verbessert. - Jacobus Theodorus, genannt Tabernaemontanus, geboren zwischen 1520 und 1530 zu Bergzabern in der Pfalz, gestorben 1590 zu Heidelberg, einer der "deutschen Väter der Botanik", Arzt, Apotheker und Schüler von Brunfels und Bock. Er war Leibarzt unter dem Grafen von Nassau zu Saarbrücken, dem Bischof Marquard zu Speyer und bei Kurfürst Johann Casimir in Heidelberg. Seine bedeutensten literarischen Leistungen lagen auf botanischem Gebiete. Die Früchte eines vieljährigen Studiums und regen Sammelfleißes birgt ein groß angelegtes Kräuterbuch zur Identifikation von Pflanzen und deren medizinischer Anwendung. Ganz in der üblichen Weise der Kräuterbücher seiner Zeit abgefasst, zeichnet sich das Werk durch gelungene Holzschnitte und treffende Beschreibungen aus (ADB). Große Bedeutung hat sein Werk durch seine Systematik, sie zeigt Ansätze zur Klassifizierung der einzelnen Pflanzen in Familien. Weiterhin finden sich ausführliche Angaben zur Nomenklatur (Register in 10 verschiedenen Sprachen), die auch die volkstümlichen Benennungen enthalten. Die Abbildungen zeigen die ganze Pflanze relativ plastisch schraffiert (weshalb eine Kolorierung nicht erforderlich war) und nehmen mehr Rücksicht auf botanische Besonderheiten als das bei früheren Autoren der Fall gewesen ist. Es finden sich zahlreiche genaue Angaben zu Rezepturen, Dosierungen sowie zu Anbau und Kultivierung der jeweiligen Pflanzen. Das erste Werk erschien 1588 in Frankfurt bei Nicolaus Basse; 1591 folgte der zweite Teil. Der von Braun, Frankfurt, herausgegebene Teil II erschien erst nach Tabernaemontanus Tod. Dieses riesige Werk hatte anfangs keinen verlegerischen Erfolg. Erst durch die Überarbeitung durch den berühmten Botaniker Kaspar Bauhinus erlebte es einen großen Erfolg (1613 erschienen bei Nikolaus Hoffmann) und konnte mehrmals nachgedruckt werden (1625, 1664, 1687 und zum letzten mal 1731) (Heilmann). - Kräuterbuch.

Sold "as-is" and subject to additional shipping charges due to weight. Vincent Houdry (1631-1729) was a preacher, ascetic writer, and member of the Society of Jesus in Paris. These volumes, written between 1696-1702, are the first 8 volumes of a work that comprised 22 volumes, and a 23rd which was a carefully assembled index for the entire work. Considered a homiletic work, La bibliotheque des pré dicateurs, is intended as background material for the composition of sermons. However, it now represents a significant historical work of Catholic theology.
