      à Amsterdam: Chez François Changuion, 1737. Fine. Chez François Changuion, à Amsterdam 1737, 3 tomes en 3 Vol. in 12 (9x16,7cm), (4) XXXVIII (6) 374pp. et (12) 447pp. et (12) 344pp., relié. - First edition, rare, adorned with a frontispiece and a vignette title. Title pages in red and black. A fourth volume appeared in 1756 for editorial purposes with the first three but adds nothing to the work, as it contains various pieces unrelated to the general title (Ode to Laziness, room to ...) Full calf marbled time. Back tooled raised florets box-4. Part of title and volume number in red morocco. Head cover of Volume I pulled in part. 4 corners bumped. A pale wetness in Volume 2 from the second sheet on the top half of the pages on the first third of the book and the last. Soon engaged in the path of skepticism and critical vision, Boureau Deslandes is'' one of the philosophers who prepared the attacks Encyclopaedists against religion and superstition, and used all his philosophy of Enlightenment. His History of Philosophy voluntarily out of this type of work. "He defines his position by challenging compilations, anecdotal biographies, attempts to reconcile ancient and modern, between paganism, Judaism and Christianity's erudition Boureau-Deslandes is considerable. Makes it an important part in the contextualization of different knowledge, and proposes a scheme of four "ages" to study, in each contemporary, "what science was included in [the] name [of philosophy]."

Un quatrième volume parut en 1756 pour raisons éditoriales avec les trois premiers mais n'apporte rien à l'oeuvre, puisqu'il contient diverses pièces sans rapport avec le titre général (Hymne à la Paresse, pièce en vers...) Reliure en plein veau marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de 4 fleurons caissonnées. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de tête du tome I arrachée en partie. 4 coins émoussés. Une mouillure pâle dans le volume 2 à partir du second feuillet sur la moitié haute des pages sur le premier tiers de l'ouvrage et sur le dernier. Tôt engagé dans la voie du scepticisme et de la vision critique, Boureau Deslandes est l''un des philosophes qui ont préparé les attaques des Encyclopédistes contre la religion et les superstitions, et toute sa philosophie sert l'esprit des Lumières. Son Histoire de la philosophie se démarque volontairement de ce type d'ouvrage. "Il définit sa position en récusant les compilations, les biographies anecdotiques, les tentatives de conciliation entre anciens et modernes, entre paganisme, judaïsme et christianisme. L'érudition de Boureau-Deslandes est considérable ; elle fait une part importante à la contextualisation des différents savoirs, et propose un schéma en quatre « âges » pour étudier, dans chaque période, « quelles sciences étaient comprises sous [le] nom [de philosophie]».

        A dissertation concerning the present state of the high roads of England, especially of those near London. Wherein is propos'd a new method of repairing and maintaining them. Read before the Royal Society the twenty-seventh day of January and the third day of February, 1736-7

      London, printed: and sold by L. Gilliver and J. Clarke; J. Stephens; and J. Roberts. 1737. 8vo., 8 engraved plates (of which one is folding), (16) + 62pp., wanting the advertisement leaf, the title-page just a little soiled, rebound in old-style marbled boards with printed spine label. A very good copy. First edition: scarce. Skempton (British Civil Engineering 1640-1840: a bibliography>. 1987], 1071. Kress 4350. Goldsmiths 7537. Hanson 5107. McCulloch p.199. [See also, e.g. Gregory, The story of the road>, pp.207-211 and Sidney & Beatrice Webb, The story of the King's highway>, 1920, pp.132-3]. This is a complete and practical treatise on road-making at a period when inland transport relied almost wholly on badly maintained roads together with a few navigable rivers, one or two early canals, and a plethora of coastal traffic. The plates are remarkably good, illustrating as they do in some detail cross sections of various geological and geophysical hazards and their proposed solutions, some illustrated with a cart or coach poised at precarious angles. Later figures illustrate some of the road problems and their solutions in and close to London (Acton Road, Grosvenor Street, Hide [sic] Park, the Parade in St. James's Park, roads in Hamstead and Highgate, and Tyburn Road). Phillips was responding to the 'general complaint' about the awful state of the roads, especially those near London. 'Those that frequently travel have a double reason to complain; first, as they pay a great deal of money to the turnpikes; and then, as they find the roads daily grow worse'. Waggoners and stage-coachmen were fed up: 'nothing but the necessity of their affairs makes them bear with so much dust, or dirt, or stops, as they are sure to meet with on the roads'.

Erste künstlerische Ausbildung erhielt Granet im Atelier eines heute unbekannten Landschaftsmalers in Aix. Anschließend ging er an die lokale Zeichenschule, wo er Schüler von J.-A. Constantin (1785-1855) war. Seinem lebenslangen Freund und Gönner Comte A. de Forbin (1777-1841), selbst dilettierender Maler, gelang es nicht nur selbst in das Atelier von J.-L. David einzutreten, sondern auch Granet 1798 dazu zu verhelfen. Bereits 1799 stellte er im Salon aus. Gemeinsam mit Forbin ging er 1802-1819 nach Rom, wohin er auch später wiederholt und zu längeren Aufenthalten zurückkehrte. 1824 wurde Granet Konservator am Louvre, 1833 Direktor des Musée Historique de Versaille. Granet hinterließ seiner Heimatstadt seinen künstlerischen Nachlaß, in dem sich auch über 600 Zeichnungen und Aquarelle befinden.

Luzán Claramunt was Spain's principal exponent of the Franco-Italian theories of poetics and though he failed miserably as a constructive critic, he practiced destructive criticism very effectively on the works even of Lope de Vega and Calderon!

        PROSPECTUS LATERIS ARCIS EX PARTE DURIAE MAJORIS CON ILLUMINATIONE AUGUSTÆ TAURINORUM. - VÜE DE LA FAÇADE DU CHATEAU DU C?"TÉ DE LA GROSSE DOIRE AVEC L'ILLUMINATION À TURIN.

      Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame, dalla bella coloritura policroma coeva, eseguita a tempera ed acquerello; in lastra, sotto la linea marginale, titolo in latino e in traduzione francese nonché, a sinistra, sigla "X 2". La rara opera, uscita dalla celebre stamperia Remondini di Bassano del Grappa, riproduce con varianti una tavola vedutistica, parte di uno dei più bei libri di feste del Settecento italiano; il volume, intitolato "La sontuosa illuminazione della città di Torino [...]", venne pubblicato nel 1737 a Torino, per i tipi di G. B. Chais, in occasione delle nozze fra Carlo Emanuele III re di Sardegna ed Elisabetta Teresa di Lorena. L'immagine rappresenta il lato di Palazzo Madama a Torino che prospetta sulla contrada della Dora Grossa, attuale via Garibaldi, con la monumentale facciata barocca progettata da Filippo Juvarra. All'epoca di Guglielmo VII del Monferrato, al centro di piazza Castello sorgeva un fortilizio chiamato Castrum Portae Phibellone, di cui possiamo ancora oggi ammirare le due torri sul lato orientale di Palazzo Madama. Il Castello subì molteplici trasformazioni nel tempo, nel XV secolo ampliarono le costruzioni difensive, Carlo Emanuele II mutò completamente la disposizione dell'edificio e fece costruire il grande salone, infine nel 1718 Juvarra eresse la facciata di ponente ed il grandioso scalone a due rami. Imponente edificio già Porta Romana, poi Castello medioevale ed infine dimora della vedova di Carlo Emanuele II. La coloritura è tipica delle vues d'optique, destinate ad essere esposte alla luce dello strumento ottico detto "lanterna magica". Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

        Columbarium: or, the pigeon - house. Being an introduction to a natural history of tame pigeons.... (with) an account of some medicines prepar?d by John Moore apothecary....

      Contemporary speckled calf. A most beautirul copy in superb condition FIRST EDITION OF A GREAT RARITY - ONE OF A HANDFUL KNOWN OF THE ORIGINAL PRINTED COPY. Complete, with the medical section of this pioneering study of pigeons. ?With a partiality usually shewn to the victor, the Hawk has engaged the pen of many a writer: But his Prey . . . has scarce met with that? (dedication to Sir William Stapleton, Baronet). This is the ?earliest English work giving a description of the different varietie of the domestic pigeon? (Casey Wood). Accordingly, Moore (d. 1737), well known for his worm powder which cures ailments including scurvy, measles, the King?s Evil, Sciatica, cholick, and much more, is considered the pre - eminent of all pigeon fanciers. Among some of the topics the author treats is the method of building a loft, the generation and breeding of pigeons, identification of various types of pigeons, their diet, their usefulness and their dung. Of special interest is his chapter on carrier pigeons. He was not only a very judicious fancier, but a gentlemen (chemist) who spared no pain to make himself acquainted with the diseases of these birds and to apply the best methods of cure. In the eighteenth and nineteenth century Moore?s treatise was copied line by line and page by page, though loaded with errors. It was reissued with a new introduction by W.B. Tegetmeier, the leading authority on pigeons who ?introduced Darwin to the institutions of the fancy, took him to shows, and answered numerous queries in correspondence? (OBNB). In 1868 Tegetmeier wrote ?there is no accurate reprint of Moore?s Columbarium. Matthew Eaton?s 1852 treatise on pigeons was a ?cut up copy of Moore with additional erratic notes by Eaton.? He also pointed out that John Mayor (pseud. of Daniel Girton) in 1765 plagiarized (or as he put it ?cabbaged?) and basically copied Moore. He was surprised that Mayor ?did not have a little more candour or honour in acknowledging Moore.? Apparently no one could find an original copy, suggesting there was only one or two printed. Most writers on the subject acknowledged that they did not know whether more than one copy of this work even existed. It was also noted in the Journal of Horticulture and Cottage Gardner, October 24, 1865, Volume XXXIV, page 350, that finding a copy of the original took Eaton a few years, a great deal of money, and when he finally found a copy, ?he had to bribe the fancier.? The story goes that apparently Moore was timid, and had little cash. With the few copies unsold his wife used to light their fire. Much of the research on this work is concerned with the history of finding an original copy such as we offer here. OCLC locates 5 copies in America, of which only 3 have the full 80 pages; British Museum Catalogue notes 4 copies, though only 1 has the full 80 pages; Casey Wood, p. 471

      [Madrid. 1737].. 7 leaves. Folio. Dbd. Maltese cross at head of title. Accomplished in manuscript at San Ildefonso, Spain on Oct. 5, 1737, signed by Miguel de Villanueva. Manuscript inscription on verso of last printed page (see below). Contemporary annotation on first page, very light dampstaining in top margin, a few minor instances of foxing. First leaf slit near binding, still intact. A very good copy. A rare printed decree by Philip V, King of Spain, regarding vacancies which have occurred in archbishoprics and dioceses in the viceroyalties of Peru and New Spain. An advisory council composed of various theologians and the ministers of the Councils of Spain, the Inquisition, and the Indies will review this matter which affects missions throughout the New World. The King declares that the effectiveness of the missions, which furthers the goals of the Spanish empire, depends upon archbishops, bishops, ecclesiastical dignitaries, canons, prebends, and other religious figures. He states (translated here into English): "To be effective and without risk in each bishopric, the capital of its missions, that determine and establish [missions] in parts most suitable...taking in the necessary advice of the viceroys, Audiencias, and prelates, with the idea of uniting the continents, ensuring the secure communication and commerce of the people...it will be possible to expect to see successes in a few years: the pacification of the provinces of Nueva Vizcaya and Huasteca; the exploration of the continent of the Californias; the reduction of the barbarous nations of the Orinoco and of the Motilones Indians of Maracaybo, Santa Marta, and Rio de la Acha; and [ensuring] the subjugation, population, enculturation, and fertility of such an extended country as remains to be conquered while expanding the Catholic religion, and the dominions." Printed in Madrid for distribution in Spain and the New World, this copy, accomplished at San Ildefonso on Oct. 5, 1737, is signed by Miguel de Villanueva as representative of the King of Spain, with the inscription, "Yo el Rey." A manuscript note on the verso of the last printed page, written in the city of Santiago on Nov. 14, 1738, describes an instance of the distribution of the text in Chile. A rare printed decree regarding the maintenance of religious offices in the New World, with a contemporary manuscript inscription regarding the text's distribution in the viceroyalty of Peru.

ALEXANDER POPE, IN PROSE [half-title] LETTERS OF MR. ALEXANDER POPE, AND SEVERAL OF HIS FRIENDS

      London: Printed by J. Wright for J. Knapton in Ludgatestreet, L. Gilliver in Fleetstreet, J. Brindley in New Bond Street, and R. Dodsley in Pall-Mall, 1737.. [34],[2],[9]-332pp. (page numbers 215-22 duplicated, as usual). Three volumes. Quarto. Elegantly bound in full contemporary red morocco, heavily gilt extra with a broad dentelle border ornamented with a small stamp of a dove, and a large central ornament of flowers and scrolls, a.e.g., with the crest of John Boyle, Earl of Orrery, in gilt in the central spine compartment (of seven) of each volume, marbled endsheets. Decorated throughout with engraved head and tail pieces and initials. Titles printed in red and black, the second with an inset engraved vignette portrait and the third with Richardson's engraved profile portrait inset. With the Earl's bookplate and characteristic shelf numbering notations on the pastedowns and endleaves in each volume, the first having a second example of his bookplate on the verso of the title as well. Each volume very expertly rebacked, with the original backstrips laid down, some occasional foxing. offsetting or dusting, but a handsome set, with Orrery's ownership annotations in each volume, as well as significant commentary in the first and second (see below). An important set, belonging to one of Pope's closest friends of his late years, John Boyle, 5th Earl of Orrery (1707- 1762), the early biographer of their mutual friend, Jonathan Swift, and go- between in the matter of recovering letters from Swift that Pope wished to publish. And of particular interest is the probability, according to his entry in THE ALEXANDER POPE ENCYCLOPEDIA, that Orrery subsidized the publication of the third volume here, THE LETTERS ... of 1737. That volume is present here in a thick paper copy of the first quarto edition, which Griffith notes was printed prior to the small and large folio editions, and was reserved for subscribers. Each volume is inscribed on the verso of the leaf preceding the title: "Orrery 1737. The Gift of the Author." The first and second volumes bear additional annotations in his hand, for which see below. In this copy of the LETTERS ..., the half- title is signed 'A', and the date of the first letter is corrected to the proper '1704.' In the imprint, Ludgatestreet and New Bond Street are not hyphenated (a variant noted in ESTC, and denoted as a potential "? second issue" in the description of the thick paper copy in the Rothschild collection). The first volume bears, on the recto of the first preliminary blank, a thirteen-line (ca. 150 words) manuscript account by Orrery, just perhaps as told to him by Pope, of the origins and context of "The Rape of the Lock," reading in part: "The Poem of the Rape of the Lock, was occasioned by a real act of Lord Petre's to Miss Arabella Farmor [sic] ... Mr Pope to reconcile them formed this Poem, a work of more imagination than any other of his productions. Sir [George] Brown[e] ... was so much offended at his own character of Sir Plume, that he swore he would break the Author's head. If he breaks my head, said Mr Pope, he must break my skull too, or I shall draw another Picture of him at full length." This is the first quarto edition of the 1717 first volume of the WORKS, published simultaneously with the copies in folio. The imprint is in the first form, without Tonson's name included. There is no sign that this copy was ever equipped with the folding frontis portrait -- a somewhat puzzling circumstance given the context and bindings -- and the half-title is not present. However, given the twenty years that had passed between the publication of the first volume, and its transmittal by Pope to Orrery, it is just possible that it was the sole copy Pope had at hand at the time, sans portrait though it was. Leaf O2 is, as usual, a cancel. In the lower gutter of the title-leaf there is a remnant of a once- tipped in bookseller's description. The second volume bears, on the verso of the front free binder's endsheet, a five-line manuscript note, reading: "Whatever Names appear here in manuscript, were never communicated by the Author, but are merely the guess work of idle hours, and may be deemed the echoes on record of busy Town:Whispers - This much it is necessary To attest in defence of the Person who gave this book to O." The referenced annotations appear on over forty pages scattered in the text, most often in the various "Epistles" and "Satires," and range from simple single letters marking or cross-referencing names cloaked by dashes, ellipses or ***, to full identifications, in some cases two or three to a page. This volume is the first quarto edition, which followed the folio edition by a day or two. The Orrery Library was sold at the order of the Earl's descendant, the 10th Earl of Cork, in 1906. At the time of the offering recorded in the early (and rather imprecise) bookseller's description formerly tipped (and now laid) into the first volume, a fourth volume was present - current whereabouts unknown.

Aix-en-Provence 2008, Abb. Nr. 46, S. 89, "Vue du Tibre pres du Ponte Molle a Rome, (1803?)".. Erste künstlerische Ausbildung erhielt Granet im Atelier eines heute unbekannten Landschaftsmalers in Aix. Anschließend ging er an die lokale Zeichenschule, wo er Schüler von J.-A. Constantin (1785-1855) war. Seinem lebenslangen Freund und Gönner Comte A. de Forbin (1777-1841), selbst dilettierender Maler, gelang es nicht nur selbst in das Atelier von J.-L. David einzutreten, sondern auch Granet 1798 dazu zu verhelfen. Bereits 1799 stellte er im Salon aus. Gemeinsam mit Forbin ging er 1802-1819 nach Rom, wohin er auch später wiederholt und zu längeren Aufenthalten zurückkehrte. 1824 wurde Granet Konservator am Louvre, 1833 Direktor des Musee Historique de Versaille. Granet hinterließ seiner Heimatstadt seinen künstlerischen Nachlaß, in dem sich auch über 600 Zeichnungen und Aquarelle befinden.
