        Two unidentified small wash drawings

      N.p., 1738. Each signed, possibly in anoher hand, lower left, in ink, "Gravelot". 1 vols. 9.3 x 7.4 cm. The two matted together and framed. Both drawing slightly toned, but very good. The first illustration, of a Monkey addressing a Lion and a Wolf, is almost certainly from Gravelot's English period (1733-1746) and could well be a preliminary sketch for Gay's FABLES; yet the second drawing, depicting a female figure driving a chariot, displays an allegorical style reminiscent in style and theme to his illustratons for ICONOLOGIE PAR FIGURES (ca. 1789).

        Histoire des guerres d'Italie

      New edition. Although other editions have been given in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, it is not only the most beautiful edition of this text, but also the best translation by Favre, reviewed by Gorgeons and others .. Full speckled antique glazed calf. Back tooled raised florets in 4 boxes. Part of title in red morocco. Caps head leveled. Tail headdress of Volume II threadbare. Wormholes and a gallery on the upper flat of Volume I. A flap of skin torn on upper cover of Volume III of 3 cm. Corners bumped. Of the three title pages, two rectangles of paper were pasted formerly of both sides, under the title, thus masking a previous owner. History of the wars of Italy begins in 1490 and ends in 1534; Guicciardini worked there for 27 years, and his work, in the opinion of critics of his time is valuable and of great merit, even though it was criticized its violence would greatly praised his impartiality; this work did much to modernize methods in history. Ambassador, writer and politician of Florence, friend Machiavelli, Guicciardini is part of the pantheon of great men of Florence.

        Discours sur la Parallaxe de la Lune, pour perfectionner la Theorie de la Lune et celle de la Terre.Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1741. First edition.

      "This quite rare work is a sequel to Maupertuis' much better known <i>La figure de la terre</i> (1738). Here Maupertuis develops a method for compensating his observations for lunar parallax, and applies it to the revision of his own measurement of the degree, as well as those of Picard and others, confirming more accurately than before the figure of the earth predicted by Newton. In addition Maupertuis reports his measurements of the variation in the force of gravity at different points on the earth's surface using Graham's pendulum. As Maupertuis points out in the long preface, parallax corrections are important not only for geography and navigation, by the correct measurement of the degree, but for perfecting the theory of the moon and lunar tables, which he believed, as Halley did, would solve the longitude problem."

Contemporary speckled calf, double gilt rules, nicely rebacked to style retaining the original maroon label, gilt tooling. An excellent copy. Ellis achieved great success and fame with his many books on country matters, although this suffered when the numerous visitors to his own farm at Little Gaddesden, Hertfordshire, found that he employed none of the modern techniques advocated in print. The fourth Duke of Bedford, Russell succeeded his brother in 1732 and became an influential whig politician, holding many important offices during his lifetime. First published 1759 as an abridgement of an earlier work, "The Modern Husband-man".

[Zweiter Druck im Jahr der Erstausg. mit korrigierter Jahreszahl "1738" statt "1378"].

      Jena, Verlegts Joh. Sebast. Rudolph. Buchbind., 1738.. 8 Bll., 147 S. (Titel in Schwarz u. Rot), 6 Bll. (Index), Kl.-8°, Gemusterter Interimskarton d. Zt.. Ferguson II, 570 (Anmerkung); Duveen 634; Ferchl 598; Neu 4438; Brüning 4327; Kopp II, 364. - Neben dieser gedruckten Fassung existiert auch ein Manuskript mit 40 farbigen Illustrationen in der ital. Biblioteca dell'Accademia Nazionale dei Lince, deren Bilder Bruno Nardini 1989 veröffentlichte: "Zoroaster. Ermetismo e alchemia nelle miniature di un manoscritto del sec. XVII". - An der rosenkreuzerischen Herkunft des Textes besteht kein Zweifel, so steht das "J.V.S.F.R.O." auf dem Titel für "J.V.S. Frater Rosae[crucis] Ordinis". In der Vorrede wird gemahnt, das Traktat vor den "Welt-Kindern" zu verbergen. Diese bisher befolgte Vorschrift erkläre, "warum unser Zoroaster bishierher nicht gemeine geworden; Imo: ich habe denselben auf meinen 50. jährigen Reisen nur ein einzigmal mehrenteils in Hebräischer Sprache gefunden, aber sehr unvollkommen gefunden und dennoch wurde es vor einen großen Schatz gehalten, daß, man auch viele 1.000 Thl. hätte davor geben wollen, man es dennoch davor nicht würde erhandeln können." (vgl. dazu Michael Stausberg: Faszination Zarathushtra: Zoroaster und die Europäische Religionsgeschichte. S.948ff). Der anonyme Autor ist wahrscheinlich der gleiche, der 1735 als "R. Abrahami Eleazaris" ein "Uraltes Chymisches Werk" veröffentlichte (dort im zweiten Teil mit separatem Titel: "Donum Dei Samuelis Baruch, des Juden Rabbi, Astrologi und Philosophi"). In der Slg. Duveen findet sich bei diesem Titel ein handschriftlicher Hinweis: "Deutlicher Schlüssel, derer ienigen fremden Wörter so in diesen Büchern ['Abraham Eleazar' u. 'Samuel Baruch'] befindlich, und doch zum Theil in den Registern nicht erkläret stehen welche aber in dem Buche Zoroastro dem Juden, und Rabbi enthalten sind." (Duveen S.2). Weitere Indizien für die Zusammengehörigkeit der drei Titel enthält auch die Vorrede des vorliegenden Textes: "Gegenwärtiges MStum ist hier das einige welches von Wahrheiten in Arte Spagyrica geschrieben, wie denn auch Abraham der Jude und Samuel Baruch ihr Lob verdienen", sowie die erneute Anmerkung dieses "ertz-wichtige Werck, absonderlich das 3te Buch" zu verbergen. - Deckel mit kl. Eckabriss; Seiten tlw. angeknickt; durchgehend gebräunt; sonst ein gutes Expl. aus der Bibliothek des Pariser Buchbinders Leon Gruel mit Exlibris. - Selten.

        Voyage fait par ordre du Roi en 1768 et 1769, à différentes parties du monde, pour éprouver en mer les horloges marines inventées par M. Ferdinand Berthoud. Première[-seconde] partie, ... Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1773. 2 volumes. Large 4to (27 x 20.5 cm).

Contemporary gold-tooled mottled calf.

      Bibl. horlogère de Monsieur R.P. 196; Chadenat 2617; Gould, p. 96 note; Tardy, p. 99. First edition of an account by Charles Pierre Claret, Count Fleurieu (1738-1810), of the first voyage made to test the chronometers invented by his mentor, Ferdinand Berthoud (1727-1807). They were developed to keep accurate time at sea in order to solve the problem of the determination of longitude, to make it possible for ships to easily determine their position. Berthoud closely followed the work of Harrison in England, who had already proven the efficacy of his chronometer no. 4 in 1761, but refused to allow Berthoud and others to examine it. During the voyages described in the present work, Fleurieu tested Berthoud's chronometers as well as his own instruments on board the ship Isis, travelling to Cadiz, the Canaries, the Antilles, Santo Domingo, the Atlantic Ocean, Madera, and several other places. The results showed their success even beyond his own expectations. The present work is complete with the appendix.With an owner's inscription on both title-pages. With only some minor, mostly marginal water stains at the beginning of volume 2. Folios e2 and e3 misbound at the end between 4I1 and 4I2. In very good condition.
