        Description des fêtes données par la ville de Paris à l'occasion du mariage de madame Louise-Élisabeth de France, & de Dom Philippe, Infant . d'Espagne.

      - Gr.-Folio (620 x 465 mm). Mit 13 (8 doppelblattgrossen) Kupfertafeln, 1 gest. Kopfvingette und grossen Titelvignette, radiert von und nach Blondel, Bouchardon, Rigaud und Rousset. Titel, 22 S. Text. Roter Maroquinband d. Z., mit goldgeprägtem Allianzwappen von Marquis Gabriel Charles de Calmesnil,seigneur de Putot-en-Bessin de Calmesnil und Marguerite Jacqueline, dame de Saint-Martin Huguenote de Carbonnel. Paris, imprimerie P.G. Le Mercier, 1740. Prachtvoller Wappeneinband über einem der repräsentativsten Beispiele der grossen französischen Fest- oder Zeremonienbücher des 18. Jahrhundwerts. Die Stadt Paris bereitete der Lieblingstochter des Königs, Prinzessin Marie ('Babette') Louise Élisabeth (1727-1759), aus Anlass ihrer Vermählung mit dem spanischen Infanten Philippe von Parma (1720-1765) ein Fest und Spektakel, wie es Frankreichs Metropole seit Jahrzehnten nicht mehr gesehen hatte. Für die extravagante Festarchitektur an und auf der Seine auf Höhe des Louvre wurde der italienisch-französische Architekt, Bühnenbildner und in ganz Europa als Spezialist für derartige Festivitäten berühmte Giovanni Niccolò (Jean Nicolas) Geronimo Servandoni (1695-1766) engagiert, der vom Architecte du Roi, Jacques Gabriel (1667- 1742) sekundiert wurde. "Jamais encore à Paris un décorateur de fêtes n'avait bénéficié d'un aussi bel hommage" (Jérome de La Gorce). Eine kleine Armee von Architekten, Ausstattern und Handwerkern realisierte die aufwendigen Vorgaben der beiden Strategen. Mit dem Blick des Architekten zeichnete und radierte Blondel Giovanni Niccolò Servandonis und Jacques Gabriels grossartige Festbauten auf mehreren doppelblattgrossen Kupfertafeln, darunter den für zweihundert Musiker gebauten, achteckigen schwimmenden Musikpavillon mitten auf der Seine. "The concentration on architecture provides an immediate sense of theater, especially in the double-page engraved sections through the Hôtel de Ville, focusing on the ballroom. The brilliant engravings, of the first quality, are all by Blondel" (Millard). An den Ufern waren gigantische Terrassen mit einer Königsloge aufgebaut, von wo aus das zweitägige Spektakel zu verfolgen war. Nach dem Zeugnis eines Augenzeugen, der seine Eindrücke ii einem in der Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris gehüteten Exemplar festhielt: "on ne vit 'rien de mieux imaginé'. Den Höhepunkt bildete ohne Zweifel das vom königlichen Feuerwerkmeister Testard und seinen Gehilfen verantwortete nächtliche Feuerwerk, wie es die Stadt seit Jahrzenten nicht mehr gesehen hatte. "The fireworks were spectacular, presenting cannonades, flights of honorary rockets, fixed and turning suns, and an abundance of fire imitating water, in pyrotechnic 'cascades, fontaines d'artifice', and 'jets de feu' whose sparks Blondel shows streaming above the Pont Neuf . Servandoni thus initiated a new era in fireworks and theatrical pervormances in paris, aggrandizing elements already present in French fireworks to a new, and vast, scale. In these performances, neoclassical architecture and perspective scenery dominated displays, but French artificiers also offered ingenious fireworks to accompany them . Audiences also contributed tot he displays, experiencing them no longer as curious and strange marvels but more like opera or theater productions . A temple of Hymen was consturcted at the center of the Pont Neuf, an elaborate viewing stand for the royal party was installed against the facade of the Louvre Museum, and the quais were jammed with a crowd estimated at five hundred thousand . Finally, around eight, the king gave the signal: bombs went off, then cannon, then flares and firecrackers . and then every kind of firework erupted" (S. Werrett, Fireworks: Pyrotechnic Arts and Sciences in European History (2010), S. 136ff.). Arthur Lotz in 'Das Feurwerk. Seine Geschichte und Bibliogaphie' (S. 63) verzeichnet es ebenfalls als "ein Feuerwerk von einer solchen Ausdehnung, wie es wohl nie wieder erreicht worden ist . Es spielte sich in verschwend [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Plan de Paris, commence l'annee 1734. Acheve de Graveur en 1739

      [Paris: 1739 or 1740]. - Folio (22 x 17 4/8 inches). Fine folding engraved key map, and 20 double-page engraved sheets that combine to make one exceptionally large plan of Paris (ca 98 inches x 127 inches) by Claude Lucas after Louis Bretez (sheets 18 and 19, with the title cartouche, joined and folding) (a bit browned throughout). Contemporary red morocco gilt, each cover decorated with broad gilt borders of fleur-de-lis and palm frond roll tools, with large fleur-de-lis at each inner corner, and with a fine central gilt medallion of the arms of the city of Paris, the spine in ten compartments with nine raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in one, the others decorated with fine gilt tools, all edges gilt (rebacked preserving most of the original spine, some restoration to corners). Provenance: with the ownership inscription of "Pen: Wyndham" (Henry Penruddocke Wyndham, (1736–1819)), topographer on the verso of the front free endpaper. A MAGNIFICENT AND DETAILED PLAN OF PARIS: AN ISOMETRIC PERSPECTIVE FROM THE SOUTHEAST COMPOSED OF 20 SEPARATE ENGRAVED SHEETS. The area covered by this extraordinary map includes roughly the first eleven arrondissements of modern Paris, and is a fine and beautiful representation of the capital before the transformation made to the city by Napoleon III and Haussmann. At the time of this survey France, and so Paris, was effectively being ruled, with King Louis XV’s assent, by Cardinal de Fleury. From 1726 until Fleury’s death in 1743 was the most peaceful and prosperous part of the reign of Louis XV. After the financial turmoil and human suffering at the end of the reign of Louis XIV, the rule of Fleury is seen by many historians as a period of recovery. He stabilized the French currency, balanced the budget, and made economic expansion a central goal of the government. Communications were improved with the completion of the Saint-Quentin canal (linking the Oise and Somme rivers) in 1738, later extended to the Escaut River and the Low Countries and the systematic building of a national road network. By the middle of the 18th century, France had the most modern and extensive road network in the world. In this map, avenues, streets, and individual buildings, gardens, lumber and boatyards are all shown with exquisite accuracy, as the official surveyor, Louis Bretez, was given carte blanche to enter private property to record the finest details between 1734 and 1736. He was commissioned by Turgot, as the then head of the Paris municipality, to create this stunning image of Paris, to promote to the great and the good at home and abroad. Bretez, was a member of the Academy of Painting and Sculpture and a teacher of perspective. Claude Lucas, a member of the Academy of Sciences, engraved the plates in 1836. In 1739 the prints were bound in volumes presented to the King, members of the Academy, the Municipality, and French envoys abroad, to promote the beauty and magnificence of Paris. From the distinguished library of Pen Wyndham, who as a young man travelled extensively in Europe: "with his relation Joseph Wyndham, and William Benson Earle of Salisbury, Wyndham set out on the grand tour in 1765. Theirs was not the usual party of very young men with a tutor. Pen Wyndham was by this time twenty-nine and had already demonstrated some learning as an antiquary. After leaving England in September, the party visited France, Italy, and Sicily, and returned via Geneva and the Netherlands to reach England in September 1767. Pen Wyndham's letters to his father (now in the Wiltshire and Swindon Record Office, Trowbridge) show him very critical of much of what he saw. As well as the normal litany of complaints about the inns, food, and predations of the local people, he showed the family whig traits by complaining about the despotic rulers of the lands he passed through, and compared the poverty and ignorance of their people with the happy freedoms of the British. He enjoyed seeing John Wilkes at Dijon and was in Rome at the time of Ja [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De Crostacei e degli altri Marini Corpi che si truovano su' monti libri due.

      Venezia, S. Monti, 1740. 4to (275 x 195mm). pp. (16), 452, with engraved title-vignette and 8 folded engraved plates. Later half calf, spine with gilt lines and lettering, marbled sides. First edition. "Rare. One of the most important books in the early history of geology. This is the author's best known and most controversial work. Moro was interested in the fossils he found in the mountains and how they came to be there. In the 'De Crostacei e degli altri Marini Corpi' Moro speculates on the organic nature of fossils. He affirmed the theory that mountains and most islands were formed by volcanoes and thought that stratified rock was igneous in origin. His most original thoughts in this area consisted of the idea that two kinds of mountains existed, Primitive and Secondary, each of different age and composition. This theory, elaborated on by others, later became the foundation for studies in historical geology"(C. Schuh, Biobliography of minerology). "Moro was very impressed by the new volcanic islands that rose from the bay in Santorini in 1707. He was particularly struck by accounts that described how shells had been brought up from the bottom of the sea floor by the force of the eruption. It occured to Moro that perhaps this was the source of all fossil bearing beds" (W.B. Ashworth, Volcanoes, Basalt, and discovery of geological time p. 16). The title vignette shows a volcanic island, newly erupted and brimming with seashells. The English translation of the title is as follows: On shells and other marine bodies that are found on mountains.//Agassiz III, 622; Cotta 16; Geikie. Founders of geology, pp. 61-66; Zittel, p. 32.

      Chez Briasson, A Paris 1740 - In-12° (163x95mm), pp. (4), XVIII, 487, (5) di errata e privilegio, (2) bianche, legatura coeva in pieno vitello marmorizzato con doppio filetto a freddo lungo il perimetro dei piatti, dorso a nervetti con titolo in oro su tassello, filetti e ornamenti floreali in oro entro scomparti. Tagli a spruzzo rossi (macchie al taglio centrale), sguardie marmorizzate. Segnacolo. Vignetta xilografica al titolo. Testatine e capilettera ornati o arabescati incisi su legno. 2 tavv. incise da Desbrulins f.t., di cui una ripiegata. Ottimo esemplare. Edizione originale e unica di questa importante disamina dei colori condotta in risposta alle teorie newtoniane; l'indagine del gesuita Castel (Montpellier, 1688-Parigi, 1757) trascende il semplice àmbito dell'ottica per abbracciare anche l'estetica e la tecnica pittorica, l'arte tintoria e la musica. Il Castel sottopose ad un'acuta critica la descrizione spettrale compiuta da Newton del colore prismatico, osservando che i colori della luce suddivisi dal prisma dipendevano dalla distanza dal prisma e che, pertanto, Newton stava prendendo in esame soltanto un caso particolare (tale argomentazione fu poi ripresa da Goethe, attento lettore della presente opera, nella sua Teoria dei Colori). Particolarmente originali sono le teorie qui esposte proprio in relazione ai legami tra i colori e la musica, influenzate da quelle di Athanasius Kircher sulla luce e da quelle di Rameau sulle proporzioni armoniche, che sfociarono poi nell'ideazione da parte del Castel del clavicembalo oculare, singolarissimo strumento musicale (che il Castel eseguì anche in diversi concerti pubblici) in cui la percussione dei tasti doveva produrre colori in alcune ampolle, dipingendo i suoni con i colori ad essi corrispondenti in modo che, a detta del suo inventore, un sordo avrebbe potuto gioire della bellezza di una musica tramite i colori ed un cieco avrebbe potuto ammirare di riflesso i colori attraverso i suoni. Conlon, 40:370. Poggendorff, I, 394. DSB, III, pp. 114-115: Castel's ocular harpsichord helped to spread his fame much more than his scientific reputation did. - He was probably the most vociferous opponent of Newtonian science during the second quarter of the 18th century in France.

        Nouvelle instruction pour les confitures, les liqueurs, et les fruits : ou? l'on apprend a? confire toutes sortes de fruits, tant secs que liquides; & divers ouvrages de sucre qui sont du fait des officiers & confiseurs / avec la maniere de bien ordonner un fruit. Suite du Nouveau cuisinier royal & bourgeois.

      12mo., sometime bound in full vellum with morocco spine label; pp.[8] 518 21 leaves. With 4 folding engraved plates. Contemporary ink name on title-page, some browning and occasional spotting, boards slightly springing, otherwise a very good copy. "Nouvelle edition, revu?e, corrigee, & beaucoup augmentee, avec de nouveaux desseins de tables." François Massialot, born in Limoges, 1660, died in Paris, 1733. He was a French chef who served as chef de cuisine (officier de bouche) to various illustrious personages, including Philippe I, Duke of Orléans, the brother of Louis XIV, and his son Philippe II, Duke of Orléans, who was first duc de Chartres then the Regent, as well as the Duc d'Aumont, the Cardinal d?Estrées, and the Marquis de Louvois. His ?Nouveau Cuisinier Royal et Bourgeois? first appeared, anonymously, as a single volume in 1691. His other cookbook, ?Nouvelle Instruction pour les Confitures, les Liqueurs et les Fruits? appeared, also anonymously, in 1692, and was reprinted several times in the eighteenth century, as offered here. Massialot describes himself in his preface as "a cook who dares to qualify himself royal",... and it is not without cause, for the meals which he describes..."have all been served at court or in the houses of princes, and of people of the first rank." An innovation in Massialot's book was the alphabetical listing of recipes, a step toward the first culinary dictionary. Meringues make their first appearance under their familiar name with Massialot, who is also credited with Crême Brulée, in which the sugar topping was melted and burnt with a special dedicated red-hot fire iron. Another first with Massialot is two recipes in which chocolate is an ingredient: in a sauce for wigeon and in a sweet custard. Until then, chocolate was consumed solely as a drink. Massialot's works were translated into English as ?The Court and Country Cook' 1702, and again were often reprinted. Vicaire 455.

        MEMOIRES DE MONSIEUR DU GUAY-TROUIN,

      - LIEUTENANT GENERAL DES ARMÉES NAVALES DE FRANCE, ET Commandeur de l?Ordre Royale & Militaire de Saint Louis. M. DCC. XL. [1740]. In 4º (24,5x18 cm). xl, 284 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele, cansada, com nervos e ferros a ouro na lombada. Apresenta charneiras e cantos das pastas cansados e folhas de guarda originais. Ilustrado com um frontispício gravado com o retrato do autor, e 6 gravuras [5 desdobráveis]. As gravuras da autoria de J. P. Le Bas e A. Coquart, incluem um retrato do autor, uma vista de um navio de guerra francês, quatro grandes vistas dobráveis de combates navais, e um mapa desdobrável do Rio de Janeiro e arredores em 1711, com o ataque dos navios de Duguay-Trouin. A vinheta na página de título mostra um querubim com um tridente no cimo de um mundo que repousa sobre uma Nau. Debaixo da Nau há dois monstros marinhos. A página 1 tem uma vinheta com Neptuno segurando seu tridente, rodeado por asseclas com apetrechos navais. Exemplar com acidulação natural do papel; notas manuscritas da época à margem do texto; e anotações bibliográficas que identificam as mesmas: «Les notes marginales manuscrits de ce volume sont de la main de Pierre Margry l?historien connu pour sa memoire pour servir à l?histoire des pays d"autre mer [alias: Découvertes et établissements des Français, 1875; e Mémoires et documents pour servir à l'histoire des origines françaises des pays d'outre-mer. 1879-1888]»; e ainda e uma nota coeva de Pierre Margry colocada após o titulo de posse de um grande nobre francês da época «L. C?[chevalier] de Soyecourt»: «Il ne faut point séparer se volume de l?atlas infolio intitulé Les Campagnes de Dugay-Trouin, par Le., graveur de marine. Les figures sont beucoup bien faites, et les combats mieux répresentés que dans ce volume. Ozanne, Drouet, etc, ont travaillé à cet atlas? Primeira edição autorizada das memórias de um dos mais ilustres marinheiro e corsário francês. Duguay-Trouin reuniu uma enorme frota e atacou o Rio de Janeiro, ocupando a cidade por cerca de dois meses. Embora Duguay-Trouin não desejasse que estas fossem publicadas até à sua morte (em 1736), as Memórias aparecem numa edição não autorizada em Amesterdão em 1730. Embora esta edição autorizada, in-quarto, de 1740 careça de muitos detalhes acerca das aventuras do autor enquanto jovem, suprimidas a pedido do cardeal Fleury, foram editadas a partir do manuscrito, corrigido por P. F. Godart de Beauchamps-Barbier, com adições do sobrinho do autor. É interessante comparar a ?Relação? de Duguay-Trouin, de 1712, com suas Mémoires, sobre o ataque ao porto e à cidade do Rio de Janeiro e o saque dos tesouros das igrejas:. pags 273-84 contem uma lista de todos os oficiais e homens que participam na expedição ao Brasil. As Mémoires são um esplêndido exemplo da arte francesa de fazer livros. Borba menciona esta edição como 'a mais procurada não só por causa da sua beleza especial, mas também porque ele contém o texto definitivo.' In 4º (24,5x18 cm). xl, 284 pags. Binding: Contemporary full calf, gilt at spine. Occasional slight browning; binding corners worned out; and original endpapers. Title page printed in red and black, with large engraved allegorical vignette. Engraved headpiece and initial. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece with the portrait of the author, and 6 engraved plates [5 of them folding]. The highly accomplished engravings, by J. P. Le Bas and A. Coquart, include a portrait of the author, a view of a French man-of-war with parts labeled, four large folding views of naval engagements, and a folding plan of Rio de Janeiro and vicinity in 1711, with Duguay-Trouin's ships attacking. The vignette on the title page shows a putto with a trident perched on a globe that rests on a galley; beneath the galley are two sea monsters. Page 1 has a vignette of Neptune holding his trident, surrounded by minions with naval accoutrements.

First edition. "Rare. One of the most important books in the early history of geology. This is the author's best known and most controversial work. Moro was interested in the fossils he found in the mountains and how they came to be there. In the 'De Crostacei e degli altri Marini Corpi' Moro speculates on the organic nature of fossils. He affirmed the theory that mountains and most islands were formed by volcanoes and thought that stratified rock was igneous in origin. His most original thoughts in this area consisted of the idea that two kinds of mountains existed, Primitive and Secondary, each of different age and composition. This theory, elaborated on by others, later became the foundation for studies in historical geology"(C. Schuh, Biobliography of minerology). "Moro was very impressed by the new volcanic islands that rose from the bay in Santorini in 1707. He was particularly struck by accounts that described how shells had been brought up from the bottom of the sea floor by the force of the eruption. It occured to Moro that perhaps this was the source of all fossil bearing beds" (W.B. Ashworth, Volcanoes, Basalt, and discovery of geological time p. 16). The title vignette shows a volcanic island, newly erupted and brimming with seashells. The English translation of the title is as follows: On shells and other marine bodies that are found on mountains.Agassiz III, 622; Cotta 16; Geikie. Founders of geology, pp. 61-66; Zittel, p. 32.

        Cursus Padi per Longobardiam a Fonte usque a ostia cum fluminibus que in illum se exonerant et adjacentibus Ducatibus ac Principatibus quos interluit et qui confinis sunt, Tribus Combinandis tabellis.

      - Augusta, 1740 circa. Incisione in rame all’acquaforte, incisa su tre fogli, colore d’epoca, cm 58,5 x 133,5 (alla lastra). Cartouche in alto al centro, circondata da figure allegoriche e con gli stemmi della Savoia, Piemonte, Monferrato, Milano, Parma, Modena, Mantova, Ferrara, Bologna e Venezia; cartiglio altrettanto riccamente decorato e allegorizzato in basso a sinistra. Opera tra le più importanti di Matthaeus Seutter, questa carta rappresenta la descrizione geografica del corso del fiume Po, con i territori interessati e quelli adiacenti, dalle sorgenti alla foce, comprendendo praticamente tutta l’Italia del Nord, con la designazione dei vari Ducati, Repubbliche e Legazioni. Matthaus Seutter (1678 -1756), dopo un apprendistato presso gli Homann a Norimberga, si trasferì ad Augsburg verso il 1720, e qui aprì la propria attività superando il maestro sotto il profilo della bellezza: le sue carte hanno sempre colori brillanti e cartigli elaborati. Minimamente rifilato il margine laterale sinistro in prossimità della battuta, stretti i margini sugli altri lati ma trattasi di ottimo esemplare in bella coloritura e in magnifico stato di conservazione.

        La mesure des surfaces et des solides, par l'arithmétique des infinis et les centres de gravité. [Avec] Le calcul différentiel et le calcul intégral, expliqués et appliqués à la géométrie

      1740 - 2 volumes in-4, XIV-[2]-493 ( A Paris, chez Charles-Antoine Jombert, 1740, , 2 volumes in-4, XIV-[2]-493 ( ie. 495 pp, avec défauts de numérotation, les pages 351 et 352 étant double) + XIX-[1]-509-[2] pages, 17 + 26 planches dépliantes, veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronnés, pièces de titre rouge (reliures analogues mais non uniformes), Premières éditions de ces deux ouvrages de pédagogie mathématique, parus la même année, de l'abbé Deidier, dédiés l'un et l'autre au prince Jean-Just de Croy et d'Havré, dont l'auteur fut le précepteur. Le Calcul différentiel porte au faux-titre "Suite de la mesure des surfaces et solides" ; néanmoins, les deux livres peuvent être pris isolément et sont complets en soi. On les trouve rarement ensemble. Tous deux sont ornés de jolies vignettes allégoriques gravées sur cuivre par Charles-Nicolas Cochin. L'abbé jésuite Deidier (1698-1746) fut professeur de mathématiques à l'École Militaire de La Fère. Il publia de nombreux traités de mathématiques et de mécanique. De lui, on a pu dire que "ses ouvrages lui assurent une place distinguée parmi les mathématiciens de son temps". La Mesure des surfaces contient 17 planches dépliantes gravées sur cuivre par Dheulland, soit 5 planches pour l'Arithmétique des infinis (livre I) et 12 pour les Centres de gravité (livre II). L'ouvrage comporte, en illustration, trois vignettes sur cuivre de Cochin, soit une au titre, gravée par Gallimard, et deux bandeaux, ainsi qu'un en-tête sur bois signé Papillon. Le Calcul différentiel, divisé en trois livres ornés chacun d'un bandeau de Cochin, comporte quant à lui 26 planches dépliantes et non signées, soit 10 pour le livre I, 12 pour le livre II et 4 pour le livre III. Petit défaut d'impression au feuillet A1, avec une surimpression du texte sur le bandeau gravé sur cuivre. Une charnière fendue en tête et en pied du premier volume, tache sombre sur le plat supérieur, une galerie de ver marginale sans atteinte au texte et une mouillure légère en tête de volume. Un mors fendu au second volume. Quelques légères épidermures. Poggendorff I, 537. Quérard II, p. 426. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
