        Mémoires pour l'histoire naturelle de la province de Languedoc

      Paris, Cavelier, 1737. de XXVI, (2), 630, (2) pp.., 6 pl.. dépliantes et 4 cartes dépliantes plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches marbrées 1737, 1737, in - 4, de XXVI, (2), 630, (2) pp., 6 pl.. dépliantes et 4 cartes dépliantes, plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches marbrées, Edition originale de ce recueil de mémoires consacrés à la province du Languedoc, d'une vaste érudition. L'auteur, originaire du Languedoc, devenu médecin consultant de Louis XV, le composa à partir de Mémoires lus pour certains dans l'Académie Royale des Sciences de Montpellier. Il se divise en trois parties, consacrées respectivement à la Géographie, la Physique et la Littérature. Il établit une comparaison entre l'ancienne géographie du Languedoc et celle de son époque, et poursuit par l'étude des voies romaines qui l'amène à fixer la longueur des anciens milles, des pas et des pieds. Les mémoires sur la physique traitent essentiellement des fontaines "intermittentes et périodiques", mais aussi des bains de Balaruc, d'une Mine de plomb dans le diocèse d'Alais, de la manière d'élever et de façonner des fourches de bois, ou encore des vents, etc. La dernière partie réunit des mémoires "littéraires" qui "entrent dans le plan de l'histoire naturelle ... en ce qu'ils font connoître la nature des côtes, la disposition des ports, le génie & le caractère des habitans de cette province." L'ouvrage est illustré de quatre cartes repliées : celle "de Languedoc ... dressée sur les nouvelles observations par I.B. Nolin", celle "de la voie romaine depuis Ugernum jusqu'à Soltatio", celle de "Narbonensis Prima, qualis erat sub Imperio Romano", et celle " des vents qui sont propres à la province du Languedoc" ; auxquelles s'ajoutent six planches gravées et repliées composées de divers schémas et reproductions. Dans la troisième partie, entre les pages 422 et 500, figurent six intéressantes tables donnant alphabétiquement la définition ou l'étymologie de termes languedociens : 'Des noms celtiques de quelques lieux de la Gaule Narbonnoise première' - 'Des mot actuellement en usage dans le Languedoc, qui sont d'origine Celtique' - 'De quelques mots Languedociens, qui paroissent venir de la Langue Germanique ou Gothique'. Etc. Bel exemplaire, extrémités légèrement frottées

Composed of eight books, the Gallic Wars is "Julius Caesar's account of his campaigns in Gaul from 58 to 52 BCE, with the eighth and final book added by Aulus Hirtius for the years 51-50 BCE. . . . Caesar gives surprising space to the exploits of centurions and legions, as though the contribution of non-senatorial citizens is one of his prime concerns. It is tempting to think that he is both claiming and parading a particular relationship with the lesser citizens of Rome and Italy. . . . The Gauls are not deployed according to barbarian stereotypes . . . Gallic and German leaders communicate articulately in Roman terms, Gallic armies are highly formidable, and some Gauls are allies."

      1737 - Leiden, apud C. Wishoff, 1737. 8:o. (16),270,(44) pp. + Leiden, apud C. Wishoff, 1737. 8:o. (8),24 pp. Uncut in contemporary grey paper boards, worn. Heavy spotting on spine, later MS label. Plain paper slipcase with label printed in red. Occasional minor foxing and ruststains. Small hole in the page number on p. 5 and in the margin on index leave T7. Ruststain in lower margin. on p. 145. Old dedication "Kalmar nation" on front flyleaf and an A at bottom of title-page, which also contains a bookbinder's note "papr" in outer margin. A fine copy. Soulsby 276 for both works which were published together. The "Critica botanica", which constitutes a further development of aphorisms 210-314 in Fundamenta botanica, established Linnaeus' rules when naming the plants genus and species, which had long been a problematic issue in botany with its long and complicated denomination of species' seemingly intended to confuse rather than clarify. According to "Critica botanica" a species is named using a single word and not just any kind of names were permitted. It was for instance recommended, that if in any doubt, to name the genus after some famous botanist. For the species itself a longer description is used containing a thorough characteristic though with an upper limit as to the number of words used. The "Critica botanica" contains a noteworthy appendix, Johan Browallius' (1707-55) "Discursus" about the importance of introducing natural science as a subject in schools and colleges. It is a typical plea of its time, shared by many, of the benefits natural science in education could reap for society. Linnaeus had become acquainted with Browallius during his time in Falun where the latter was chaplain and private tutor with the County Governor Nils Reuterholm. Under Linnaeus' influence Browallius came to develop a strong interest in the natural sciences and in the year when "Discursus" was published he was awarded a professorship in the natural sciences at Åbo. Whilst at Åbo he introduced Linnaeus' taxonomy before he was transferred to the theological faculty. Browallius, who became the Bishop of Åbo in 1749, also authored the first biography of Linneaus, "Curriculum vitæ Caroli Linnæi" (Swedish translation in 1920). Linnaeus reciprocated by naming the plant genus Browallia after his friend. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Andr. Kalsenium. Leiden, apud C. Wishoff, 1737. 8:o. (8),24 s. Nött samtida gråpappbd med oskuren och i enstaka fall ouppskuren inlaga. Ryggen hårt fläckad och med senare handskriven titeletikett. I enkel pappkassett med titeletikett tryckt i rött. Enstaka smärre lager- och rostfläckar. Ett litet hål i paginasiffran på s. 95 och ett marginalhål i registerbladet T7. Rostfläck i nedre marginalen på s. 145. Gammal tillskrift "Kalmar nation" på försättsbladet och ett A nederst på titelbladet, som även har bokbindaranteckningen "papr" i yttersta marginalen. Fint ex.. Soulsby 276 för båda arbetena som utgavs tillsammans. I "Critica botanica", som utgör en vidareutveckling av aforismerna 210-314 i "Fundamenta botanica", fastställer Linné regler för namngivning av växternas släkter och arter, vilket länge var ett problemområde inom botaniken, med långa och komplicerade artbenämningar, mer ägnade att förvirra än att klargöra. Enligt "Critica botanica" namnges ett släkte (genus) med ett enda ord och vilka namntyper som helst är heller inte tillåtna; rekommendabelt är till exempel att döpa släktet efter någon berömd botanist. För arten (species) används däremot en längre beskrivning innehållande en ordentlig karaktäristik, men med en övre gräns för antalet ord. Ett märkligt litet appendix till "Critica botanica" är Johan Browallius (1707-55) "Discursus" om vikten av att införa naturkunskapen som ett ämne i skolor och gymnasier, en tidstypisk plädering för den samhällsnytta fler och fler nu menade sig kunna se i den naturvetenskapliga utbildningen. Linné hade lärt känna den med honom jämnåriga Browallius under sin tid i Falun, där den senare var kaplan och informator hos landshövdingen Nils Reuterholm. Under Linnés inverkan kom Browallius att utveckla ett starkt intresse för naturvetenskaperna och samma år som denna "Discursus" utkom utnämndes han till professor i allmän naturlära i Åbo. Där hann han bland annat introducera den linneanska botaniken innan sin övergång till den teologiska fakulteten 1746. Browallius, som blev biskop i Åbo 1749, författade också den första biografin över Linné, "Curriculum vitæ Caroli Linnæi" (svensk översättning 1920). Linné uppkallade å sin sida växtsläktet Browallia efter sin vän

Il fut un des défenseurs des médicaments chimiques parmi lesquels la potion anti-émétisante qui porte son nom et figure toujours au codex. Il a accueilli sans prévention les médicaments nouveaux quelle que soit leur origine, ne se génant pas pour les recommander si leur expérimentation était concluante, ce qui d'ailleurs s'inscrit dans l'ésprit hippocratique.

Several chapters on precious stones such as 'Von sonderbaren Crystall-Gewächsen', 'Von Edelstein-Muttern, oder von Edelsteinen, aus was vor einem Grunde sie gewachsen', 'Von sonderbar figurirten Edelgesteinen', 'Von einem grossen alhier zu Breslau sich befindenden Rubin, und denen grössten bekannt gewordenen Diamanten' as well as chapters on 'Birnstein', 'Spinnen-Steine', 'Adler-Steine' and some others. Ample descriptions are given of the plague from 1700 to 1715 in Breslau with refelections on its causes and preventions. The text is written in German.Hoover 497; Waller 5457.

        Ballet]. Il Conte d'Essex Appartamento d'una Regina. Etching and aquatint by Carlo Zucchi after Alessandro Sanquirico (1737-1777)

      - 334 x 402 mm. A very good impression on wove paper. This scene from the ballet depicts a high vaulted Gothic room in which a seated wman and two men watch while a second women (?the queen) dances. Small tear to lower edge, not affecting image. Il Conte d'Essex was first performed at La Scala in Milan in the autumn of 1818. The music for the ballet is ascribed to the Austrian writer and composer Peter Lichtenthal (1780-1853). "He was a close friend of Mozart's son Karl, and an ardent proponent of Mozart's chamber music. He composed about 50 works, including seven ballets for the Teatro alla Scala, church music, orchestral music (about 15 symphonies), chamber music, songs, piano and organ works. A number of these were published; most of his manuscripts are in the Milan Conservatory library." Alfred Loewenberg and Bruce Carr in Grove Music Online."Gioia';s works show the cross-fertilization between opera and pantomime balletn dancer and choreographer. ". his prodigious output amounted to some 95 different ballets in more than 220 productions. Gioia';s works show the cross-fertilization between opera and pantomime ballet. Gioia';s ballets were important models for Italian operas of his and the following generation. The realistic acting technique of dancers in Gioia';s ballets influenced the expressive art of such outstanding young singers as Pasta and Malibran." Kathleen Kuzmick Hansell in Grove Music Online.

        Archive of Documents and Letters, covering the period 1769 - 1789, on the management by Stanislas Foache of business and properties in Saint Domingue which were the property of M. Le Vicomte de la Belinaye, captain of Dragoons in Fougeres, France

      No Binding. Near Fine. Archive of documents, letters and papers which relate primarily to the residential real estate holdings of Viscount Belinaye. There is little mention of slavery, aside from accounts of slave sales, as is usually found in the more normally encountered plantation archives. The archive presents a facet of commerce on Saint Domingue not generally encountered. However, Belinaye's business agent in Saint Domingue was a noted slave trader, Stanislas Foache (Le Havre 1737-1806), who began working for Belinaye in 1776. The collection includes twenty six letters by Foache. Rene Maurice Viscount de Belinaye was later condemned by the Revolutionary Council and his estate was liquidated which accounts for the termination of this archive in 1789. The Belinaye family's plantation in Saint Domingue was burned in 1791. The archive includes approximately 26 letters written from Cap Francais by Stanislas Foache, ship owner, factor, agent and slave trader, totaling approximately 60 pages mainly quarto, which are further amplified by 15 statements of accounts in the form of large, detailed folding tables, which contain financial statements pertaining to Belinaye's affairs, which are laid in to the letters. These detailed letters concern the management or properties and rents, trade news, also ships and shipping, the billeting of military officers due to the War with England. Stanislas Foache, nick-named "the Good" became Belinaye's agent in Saint Domingue. Foache made his fortune in the slave trade, along with his brother Martin Pierre Foache. He was secretary of the King in 1776 and attached to the Grand Council. He began trading in Cap Francais in Saint Domingue, under the name of Stanislas Foache, Hellot & Compagnie, which Foache, Morange & Hardivillier, in 1787. Foache is one of the best documented of the negociants, he made money by managing affairs of French absentee landlords, such as Belinaye, and he seemingly made as much off his quite large plantation in Jean Rabel as he did off his equally important mercantile house in Cap. Foache and his family owned some 584 slaves, in Saint Domingue, and the family also owned a concern in Le Havre back in France. He emigrated to London in 1796-1802. The archive includes an additional 18 documents which include statements of accounts in the form of folding tables, and some additional documents, including bills of lading, correspondence, partially printed circular letters, etc. These documents include account statements by Belinaye's former agent for the periods 1769-1771 and 1771-1775. There is a copy of the power of attorney given by Rene Maurice Viscount de Belinaye to Stanislas Foache "negotiant au Cap", May 1775 for the management of his business affairs. Folio, 8 pages. And an inventory of the papers left by M. de La Belinaye to Mr. Dufresne du Pontbriant, as his attorney in Saint Domingue "for the management of property which I have in Saint Domingue." Folio 6 pages. See: King, Stewart R., Blue Coat or Powdered Wig: Free People of Color in Pre-Revolutionary Saint-Domingue (Athens: University of Georgia Press, 2001) pp., 175, 208. The Foache sugar plantation is the subject of Gabriel Debien's Plantations et esclaves.

        Rutzvanscad il Giovine.

      Venezia, Gius. Bettinelli, 1737, - in-8, pp. CXXXV, Legatura coeva in mezza pelle e angoli. Terza edizione, ma prima ed unica illustrata: antiporta, medaglione al frontesp., due iniz. inc., due testatine e 10 stupende incisioni in rame a piena pag. n.t. (due ripetute) ad illustrazione dei momenti salienti del testo tragicomico; le lastre non recano alcuna firma, ma sono indubbiamente incise da mano di ottimo artista del tempo (particolarmente interessante per l'attinenza alla parodia circa l'eccessiva imitazione dei classici, è l'antiporta che raffigura un vecchio mentre legge Seneca, Euripide e persino l'Ulisse del Lazzarini). Il prologo è proprio intitolato all'Astrologa di Piazza che così recita: ".prima che venga il dì, s'adatti in luogo, Ove possa spacciar merci di ciance, Il Palchetto, e la sedia.". Il rame finale invece raffigura il Suggeritore "Rimasta la Scena vuota, quando l'Udienza faccia molto rumore, chiamando fuori gli Attori, e battendo, esca il Suggeritore con la Carta in mano, e col Cerino; poi dica i seguenti versi: Uditori, m'accorgom ch'aspettate, Che nuova della pugna alcun vi porti: Ma l'aspettate in van; Son tutti morti". Di notevole pregio e rarità. Ottimo esemplare a margini interi. Morazzoni p. 221. Brunet I, 1675. Cat. Lapiccirella n. 244. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
