L'attribuzione della traduzione è tuttora incerta tra Desmonceaux o Beddevolle. Cfr. pure Querard III, 342. Superbo esemplare.

Mit ca. 1 cm breitem Rand rundum, insgesamt etwas vergilbt und im Rand leicht knitterig. Literatur: Nagler (Vidal) 18. Marguerite Gérards ältere Schwester Anne-Marie (1745-1823), eine Miniaturmalerin, die nach ihrer Verehelichung ihre malerische Tätigkeit aufgab, war mit J.H. Fragonard (1732-1806) verheiratet und nahm 1775 die 14jährige Marguérite mit nach Paris. Hier wurde sie sowohl von Anne-Marie als auch von ihrem Schwager (und späteren Geliebten?) unterrichtet. Darüber hinaus studierte sie die niederländische Genremalerei des 17. Jahrhunderts; insbesondere rezipierte sie die Malerei von G. ter Borch (1617-1681). Regelmäßige Teilnahmen im Salon folgten, nachdem dieser in den 90er Jahren des 18. Jahrhunderts auch für Frauen geöffnet worden war. Die Künstlerin wurde nach kurzer Zeit berühmt und gilt als die erste französische Genremalerin von Bedeutung.

Aus geheimen Nachrichten und Urkunden sorgfältig zusammen getragen (...)

      Engelland (fingiert), 1742. (8), 48 Seiten mit 3 ornament. Vignetten. Pappband der Zeit, Kl.4°. - Seltenes frühes Werk der berühmten sogenannten Lehninschen Weissagung, eine angeblich im Jahr 1306 niedergeschriebene, umfangreiche Zukunftsenthüllung eines historisch nicht nachweisbaren Lehniner Mönches oder Abtes Hermann, die dem Geschlecht der Hohenzollern seine künftigen Schicksale prophezeit. Bis auf die Zeit Friedrich Wilhelms, des Großen Kurfürsten, stimmt die Weissagung vortrefflich mit den wirklichen Geschicken der Mark Brandenburg überein, ohne dass man zu gewagten Deutelkunststücken greifen müsste. Die hohenzollernfeindliche Weissagung tauchte zuerst handschriftlich auf zwischen 1685 und 1690, also gerade am Ende der Regierungszeit Kurfürst Friedrich Wilhelms, und es ist eine an Gewissheit grenzende Vermutung, dass das ganze weissagende Gedicht wahrscheinlich von Andreas Fromm (gest. 1685), einem früheren protestantischen Probst an der Petrikirche in Berlin verfasst worden ist. Somit ist der scheinbare Erfolg und Ruf der Lehninschen Weissagung ausschliesslich darauf zurückzuführen, dass der Verfasser Dinge richtig prophezeit hat, die bereits geschehen waren. Die Weissagungen des Lehniner Mönchs sind neben denen der Sibyllinischen Bücher und den Messianischen Weissagungen des Alten Testaments diejenigen, welche die grösste Rolle in der Weltgeschichte gespielt haben. So repräsentiert auch die Lehninische Weissagung die drei hervorstechendsten Möglichkeiten, wie eine Zukunftsprophezeiung wunderbar in Erfüllung gehen kann. - Abgesehen von geringer Bräunung in sehr guter und sauberer Erhaltung. Titel mit zeitgenössischem preuß. Bibl.-Stempel.

        Rom, Blick auf die Trajans-Thermen auf dem Esquilin.

      . Aquarell und Pinsel in Grau, über Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem festem Velin, unten mit brauner Feder bezeichnet "Alle Terme di Tito (sic!)". 18,3:30,8 cm.. Der Maler und Radierer Joseph August Knip war zunächst Schüler seines Vaters N.F. Knip I (1742-um 1809) und begann als Tapetenmaler. 1801 ging er nach Paris um sich weiterzubilden. Er wandte sich der Landschaftsmalerei zu und hatte mit seinen Gouachen Erfolg. Auf Studienreisen in Frankreich und Belgien fand er seine Motive. Gönner erwirkten für ihn die Aufnahme unter die Pariser Pensionäre des Köänigs von Holland. Dies machte es ihm möglich, mehr an seiner Weiterbildung als für den Broterwerb zu arbeiten. Nun begann er in Öl zu malen. 1810 trat er mit E.Ch. Alberti und P.R. Kleyn eine Italienreise an, die ihn bis nach Neapel und Kalabrien führte. 1812 verließ er Rom und kehrte 1813 mit einem reichen Schatz italienischer Landschaftsskizzen nach Holland zurück. Hierzu dürfte wohl auch die hier vorliegende Aquarellskizze zu zählen sein.

An excellent copy (possibly meant for presentation use).. First edition of this magnificent book of type-specimens, based upon Lamesle's splendid collection of types and ornaments, which contained examples of some of the finest types in history, e.g. those of Schoeffer (the younger), Garamond, Granjon, etc. The book is particularly interesting in presenting different types from such a long period, going back nearly 2 centuries (i.e. to the mid 1500s). Apart from presenting these splendid early types, Lamesle also presents excellent contemporary types, causing the type-historian Updike to state that "[t]his book, both in type and ornaments, I think presents better than any other, the output of French foundries during the last quarter of the XVIIth and the first half of the XVIIIth century. The collection of types is remarkably fine".For further reading, see: A. F. Johnson: "The Type specimens of Claude Lamesle, a Facsimile Edition of the First Edition Printed at Paris in 1742", 1965

        Anti-Machiavel Oder Prüfung der Regeln Nic. Machiavells Von der Regierungskunst eines Fürsten. Zweyte Auflage Welcher eine Uebersetzung nach der Ausgabe des Herrn von Voltaire und das Leben Nic. Machiavells beygefüget ist. XXVI, 2 Bl., 440 S. Mit gestoch. Titel- und 2 Textvignetten. Guter Pergamentbd d. Z. (etwas fleckig) mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel.

      Göttingen, Universitäts-Buchhandlung, 1742.. . Zweite deutsche Ausgabe eines der staatsphilosophisch wichtigsten Werke der Aufklärung, nach den 'Considerations sur l'etat ' das zweite Werk Friedrichs. Geschrieben 1739, wurde es zuerst im Jahr des Regierungsantritts (1740) von Voltaire anonym im französischen Original publiziert und 1741 in deutscher Übersetzung. Friedrich geht von der irrtümlichen Vorstellung aus, Machiavelli sei ein moralisches Ungeheuer gewesen, geißelt aber mit Recht das Unwesen des Despotismus. Das Buch enthält den berühmten Satz, der Fürst solle nicht der unumschränkte Herr, sondern nur der erste Diener seines Staates sein. Der 'Antimachiavel' ist die theoretische Verteidigung dessen, was Friedrich später in der Praxis gezwungen war zu verletzen, die Verteidigung der human-aufklärerischen Ideen einer tugendhaften, maßvollen, auf Wohlfahrt der Untertanen, auf Frieden und Gerechtigkeit bedachten Staatsführung. In seinem 'Politischen Testament' schreibt Friedrich 1752: "Machiavel sagt, daß eine desinteressierte Macht, die sich inmitten ehrgeiziger Mächte befinde, sicher schließlich zugrunde gehen würde. Ich bin darüber betrübt, aber ich bin zu dem Geständnis verpflichtet, daß Machiavel recht hat." - Frisches Exemplar mit hübschen Buntpapierspiegeln. - Leithäuser 307. Fromm 28013.

        Descrizione della Regia Villa, Fontane, E Fabbriche Di Pratolino

      1742. COMPETITION OF NATURE AND ART" SGRILLI, Bernardo Sansone. Descrizione della Regia Villa, Fontane, E Fabbriche Di Pratolino. 27, [1] pp. Illustrated with 12 folding plates, of which 6 etched views of the villa and gardens are by Stefano della Bella, and 6 engravings by Sgrilli including two plans of the grounds, four architectural plans of the villa and one façade view; etched text vignette signed by Sgrilli, two etched initials of garden statuary and etched ornamental tailpiece by Marcus Tuscher. Folio, 362 x 245 mm, bound in early nineteenth-century Italian sheep, preserving the original plain paper wrappers, untrimmed. Florence: Stamperia Granducale. Per i Tartini, e Franchi, 1742. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First and Only Edition of Sgrilli's description of the celebrated Medici villa and its garden at Pratolino, an essential source of information on one of the most ingenious, enchanting and influential Italian Renaissance gardens. The villa and garden were designed and built from 1568 to 1586 for Francesco de' Medici (1541-87) by the artist and engineer Bernardo Buontalenti, director of spettacoli for the Medici, with the aim of rivaling the Villa d'Este. In this he succeeded: by the end of the century the Pratolino garden had become the most famous garden in Europe; enthusiastic descriptions by visitors such as Montaigne, Evelyn and Aldrovandi testify to its enchantments. Built on a barren hillside, so that water had to be brought from several kilometers away, the villa and its grounds transformed the natural landscape into a "place of pure delight... a great labyrinthine open-air display of the miracles of nature" (Zangheri). Filled with waterworks, automata, grottoes, and labyrinthine paths leading to clearings peopled with allegorical statues, the garden's principal characteristic was surprise. "Around the house was a broad platform with a balustrade, under which lay one of the chief attractions, the grottoes - the first and biggest, that of the Flood, and seven others. Here were giochi d'acqua- in the first, when you sat down on an inviting bench to admire the sculpture 'by a single movement the whole grotto is filled with water, and all the seats squirt water to your backside' (Montaigne). As you ran up the stairs to escape, the gardener 'may let loose a thousand jets of water from every two steps of that staircase'. Automata made music and noises of every kind, and gave the illusion of moving men and beasts... From the centre of the balustrade ran a long avenue, '50 feet wide and about 500 paces long', bordered on both sides by a free stone wall, from which at every 5 or 10 paces sprang fountains, so that all along the walk nothing but these jets could be seen. This did not act as a central axis, however, for fountains, aviaries, grottoes, fish-tanks, and mounds were scattered quite randomly around the garden..." (The Oxford Companion to Gardens, 1991, p. 454). The garden was filled with works of art. Divided into a northern "Parco Antico" and southern "Parco dei Moderni," the garden's central point was occupied by a statue of Jupiter by Baccio Bandinelli, (since removed to the garden at Santa Croce in Florence) which overlooked a circular labyrinth. Beneath this stood the garden's most celebrated statue, the Apennino - a huge, hoary and bearded representation of the mountain range, emerging from a rock and pressing a hand on the head of a water-gushing monster, created by the Mannerist sculptor Giambologna and marvelously illustrated by Stefano della Bella in plate 6. An oak-tree accessible by staircases to a dining platform in the branches, the famous washer-woman statue with her basin of boiling water, birds and beasts, music-making gods, automata acting out scenes from daily life, representing a knife-grinder, a miller, etc. -- the garden's marvels were seemingly endless. Its influence on gardens throughout Europe was far-reaching (cf. Zangheri for a detailed outline of the gardens and designers influenced). That the garden could not be perceived in its entirety added to its mystery: "It had labyrinthine walks which could only be appreciated by following them. There was no way of getting a general view. It was a garden of sights and sounds, because the various areas were first presented to wonder-struck visitors by the splash of running waters and cascades... Buontalenti's project did not let visitors ever get a glimpse of the garden as a whole from any point either in the villa or park." (Vercelloni, European Gardens, an Historical Atlas, p. 44). Thus Sgrilli's map of the entire layout of Pratolino, the first published map to reveal the secrets of the estate, is fundamental to understanding the overall design of Buontalenti. The villa and gardens were sadly destroyed in the early nineteenth century to make way for a fashionable English garden, and many of the statues were removed to the Boboli gardens. The only significant fragment to survive is the gigantic figure of Apennino by Giambologna. Stefano della Bella's etchings represent first-hand testimonials to one of the most extraordinary European gardens of any period. Engraved ca. 1653, della Bella's etchings are present here in either the second or the third state, with the numbers, as per all copies of the printed edition. Minor marginal soiling to first and last leaves around edges exposed by the smaller wrapper, light dampstain to final plate, a few marginal pencil notes or markings, binding rubbed, missing ½" piece from foot of spine. Despite the cited flaws, it must be emphasized, this is a fine, full-sized copy, entirely untrimmed, with excellent impressions of the plates. Berlin Katalog 2699.

        The First Book of Andrea Palladio's Architecture

      1742. PALLADIO, Andrea. The First Book of Andrea Palladio's Architecture. Treating of the Five Orders; And What is most neccessary in Building. Correctly drawn from his Original Work, publish'd by himself at Venice, Anno 1570. And accurately engraved by I. Ware. viii, 64 pp. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece portrait of Palladio after William Kent, 29 full-page engraved plates executed by Issac Ware and numbered I-XXXIV, plus numerous engraved in-text diagrams and illustrations. 8vo., 197 x 127 mm, bound in contemporary English mottled calf ruled in gilt, spine gilt, red morocco spine label, with red speckled edges, in a modern cloth slipcase. [London]: NP, 1742. |~||~||~||~| First and Only Edition of this separate printing of Book One from Palladio's Quattro Libri dell'Architettura. A portable version of the original folio edition (London, 1738), featuring a handy glossary of architectural terms illustrated with marginal engravings in addition to the impressive full-page plates. This small format book was designed for easy reference and frequent use in the field; the present copy, however, is surprisingly fresh, bearing witness to near original condition off the press. A distinguished architect of the Palladian school and Burlington group member, Isaac Ware (1704-1766) rendered the fine engravings herein after woodcuts from the original Italian edition (Venice, 1570), using Burlington's important collection of Palladio drawings for reference and adding shading to soften the images. Here reset verbatim from the folio edition, the text is justly considered the most accurate English version published in the eighteenth century. This is the first appearance of the glossary, which contains forty terms. "Ware's translation from the Italian is the most reliable of any; for this he was expressly indebted to Lord Burlington, who 'with his own hands' revised and corrected it. The plates however, were entirely his own work. He exactly traced and engraved them himself; but, although he was very much more faithful to the originals than Leoni had been, he did on occasion add a little shading of his own, and, in order to present a tidier appearance, separated plans and elevations that were overlapping in the Italian editions" (Harris). The influence of Palladio's work, especially on eighteenth-century English architecture, can hardly be overestimated. Base of spine expertly renewed and board extremities lightly rubbed, else a fine and wholly unsophisticated copy. With the publisher's advertisement for the preceding folio edition at the end. PROVENANCE: Francis Ferrand Foljambe (1750-1814), his ink ownership stamp below the engraved portrait of Palladio. BAL/RIBA 2413. ESTC N47296. Harris 690. Millard, British 54.

        Celestial map of the sky in 1730. Part 5. "Globi Coelestis in tabula Planas Redact pars V

      World Celestial & Curiosities: Nuremburg Homann Johann Baptiste 1742. Copper engraved map of the sky, from Doppelmayer's " Atlas Coelestis" original full wash colour; verso blank. The image is part 5 of the six sheets that make up the Sky [ as seen in 1730] by Doppelmayer. It shows the constellation of Scorpio, Sagittarius And Hercules amongst others. Each constellation is stunningly illustrated in 18th century German baroque style. Text to the left and right of the map proper offers coordinates for the individual stars in each constellations which are identified via an alpha-numeric code. Slightly faded impression; original wash colour to plate; key and title uncoloured; stain to lower left corner of plate; creasing at centrefold and 3 small wormholes. Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677 - 1750) Doppelmayr was born in Nuremberg to a merchant family. He attended the Aegidien-Gymnasium and the University of Altdorf where he studied mathematics, physics, and law. His graduating dissertation, a study of the Sun, suggests an early interest in Astronomy. Following his studies in Altdorf, Doppelmayr traveled extensively in Europe and is known to have spent time at the University of Halle, as well as in Utrecht, Leiden, Oxford, and London. He returned to Nuremburg in 1704 to take up a mathematics professorship at his alma mater, the Aegidien-Gymnasium. It may have been here that he developed a relationship with the prominent Nuremburg map publisher J. B. Homann, with whom he prepared a number of important astronomical maps and atlases. The collaboration of over 20 years eventually led to the publication of the "Atlas Coelestis" in 1742. This astounding work was the most elaborate and detailed astronomical atlas yet published and is today much admired for its rich beautifully engraved plates Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad.

        [in Greek, transliterated as] Tou en Hagiois Patros Hemon Ioustinou philosophou kai Martyros Ta heuriskomena panta, [then in roman] S P N Justini philosophi et martyris opera quæ exstant [sic] omnia

      Paris: Sumptibus Carolii Osmont Large folio (42.6 cm, 16.75"). [3] ff., cxxviii, 657 [i.e., 653], [1] pp.. 1742 Principal edition of the collected works of Saint Justin Martyr (ca. 100–165), "much the greatest figure" of Christian apologists since the Apostles (NCE). The first Latin translation of his works did not appear until 1554. This is the => authoritative edition edited by Prudent Maran (1683–1762), who reordered the works so that Justin's Dialogue with Trypho follows his two apologies, according to the original sequence. Only these three documents, which survive in later manuscripts, are surely his; however many other works are attributed to Justin. The present text contains the Dialogue, Apology I–II, and more, with biographical documents appended. The text, in Latin and Greek, is divided into two sections: a preface in 15 short chapters, and the main text. The former is printed in roman and italic with nice woodcut head- and tailpieces, and one historiated woodcut initial. Sidenotes, footnotes, and woodcut ornaments like those in the former section enhance the main text, which is printed double column in parallel Latin and Greek, with two handsome engraved initials on the first page below a finely engraved vignette by J. B. Guélard (fl. ca. 1730) after a drawing by A. Humblot (fl. ca. 1740). The title-page, printed in red and black, has an engraved device by [Nicolas-Jean-Baptiste] de Poilly (1707–80). This copy also has a half-title page. Contemporary treed calf triple-ruled in blind on covers, spine gilt extra with author and title gilt to red morocco spine label, board edges with gilt double-rule, marbled endpapers in a stone pattern and matching marbled edges, emerald green ribbon place holder. Upper joint starting with volume strong despite this and its large size; boards scuffed, corners bumped and rubbed revealing boards; stains on pastedowns and endpapers from underlying turn-ins of the binding. Light foxing in a few places, thumbsoiling, and occasional small stains; one leaf with a corner torn away, another with a natural paper flaw, a few leaves creased.
