        Vida da Insigne Mestra de Espirito a virtuosa Madre Maria Perpetua da Luz, religiosa Carmelita Calçada do exemplarissimo Convento da Esperança da Cidade de Beja onde acabou a vida temporal no dia 6. de agosto de 1736 ?.

      Lisbon, Officina dos Herdeiros de Antonio Pedrozo Galram, 1742. - Title-page in red and black; woodcut head- and tailpieces, large woodcut initials. (20 ll.), 503 pp. Folio (30.5 x 20 cm.), contemporary crimson sheep (ties missing; minor wear: corners slightly bumped, lower cover slightly chafed), with center medallion inside roll-tooled panel and a roll-tooled border curved in at the corners around fan designs; spine richly gilt with raised bands in seven compartments, a tower in each of six compartments, and the title in gilt in the second compartment from the head. All edges gilt and gauffered. Very minor worming throughout at very edge of leaf, usually 1-2 pinpoint holes, but on B2-F2 about 2 cm. long, never affecting text. Overall fine. ---- FIRST EDITION, in an elegant example of eighteenth-century Portuguese binding. During that century, and particularly under D. João V (1706-1750), Portuguese bindings reached "o seu maximo esplendor" (Matias Lima, @A encadernação em Portugal p. 51).This biography follows Maria Perpetua da Luz, a Carmelite nun of Beja renowned for her piety, through the trials and tribulations of her severe illnesses, the numerous "horrendas figuras, com que o demonio inutilmente procurou inquietarla, e pervertela dos seus santos exercicios," and her visions and other blessings (from God, the Virgin, and no fewer than 15 saints). Her writings on prayer, divine vs. profane love and ecclesiastical reform are summarized. The final chapter describes the "grandes prodigios" she performed before her death and after it, through her relics.The author was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1696 and entered the Carmelite Order there in 1716. After studying theology at Coimbra, he returned to Brazil to teach. Later he became a professor at Coimbra, provincial of his Order, and confessor to the future D. Maria I and her sisters. Pereira de Santa Anna was the brother of Simão Pereira de Sá and was active in the Academia dos Selectos of Rio de Janeiro; some of his poetry was published in the anthology @Jubilos da America, Lisbon 1754.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 772; @Período colonial pp. 327-8.

        The History Of the Adventures Of Joseph Andrews

      A. Millar, London 1742 - FIRST EDITION of Fielding's first novel, in handsome contemporary calf. "Fielding's Joseph Andrews was published anonymously in 1742. Described on the title page as 'Written in Imitation of the Manner of Cervantes, author of Don Quixote,' it begins as a burlesque of [Richardson's] Pamela, with Joseph, Pamela's virtuous footman brother, resisting the attempts of a highborn lady to seduce him. The parodic intention soon becomes secondary, and the novel develops into a masterpiece of sustained irony and social criticism, with, at its centre, Parson Adams, one of the great comic figures of literature and a striking confirmation of the contention of the 19th-century Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky that the positively good man can be made convincing in fiction only if rendered to some extent ridiculous. Fielding explains in his preface that he is writing 'a comic Epic-Poem in Prose.' He was certainly inaugurating a new genre in fiction" (Britannica). London: A. Millar, 1742. 12mo, contemporary full calf rebacked with original spines laid down. Two volumes. With four pages of ads at end of vol. 1; vol. 2 with one ad leaf opposite title and two pages of ads at rear. Early bookplate. Without spine label on vol. 1. Discoloration to margin of a few leaves in vol. 1; vol 2 clean. A very handsome set. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Philosophische Untersuchung der Frage, ob die Seelen einiger Thiere einen gewissen Grad der Vernunft haben, in einer Gesellschaft guter Freunde angestellet. Leipzig: Breitkopf, 1742

      - First and only edition of a collection of papers about whether animals can be said to possess the power of 'reason', edited and introduced by the Leipzig scientist and friend of J.S. Bach, Johann Heinrich Winckler (1703-70). The contributors are Johann Gottlob Werner, Martin Gottlieb Pauli, Ernst Salomon Hausdorf, Christoph Jeremias Rost, Benjamin Groddeck, Christlieb Traugott Bierling, Christhold Mylius (Lessing's cousin), Carl Gottlob von Penzig, Johann Christian Körner, Ernst Christian Wagner and Friedrich Heinrich Wagner. Their consensus, against the Cartesians, is that certain animals must be called reasonable creatures because (a) they can connect one judgement with another, (b) they sometimes plan for the future, (c) they use a sort of language, and (d) they seem to exhibit some kind of moral sensibility. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Small 8vo, title vignette of a bear in the wilderness, 93 pp., plain twentieth-century binding, some spotting and browning, a sound copy of a very scarce book.

        [Theatre de la Milice etrangere: Schaubühne verschiedener in Teutschland bisher unbekannt gewester Soldaten von ausländischen Nationen].

      Augsburg, [ca. 1742].. Folio (235 x 380 mm). 28 engraved plates (3 unnumbered and 25 numbered consecutively), in magnificent contemporary colour throughout, raised in gilt. Contemporary brown calf; spine rebacked with giltstamped red label; leading edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. All edges red.. Exceedingly rare, brilliantly hand-coloured set of costume engravings by the Augsburg master Martin Engelbrecht, depicting the protagonists of the War of the Austrian Succession then raging in Silesia. Some 150 plates we published in this series which cashed in on the timely subject and, specifically, the warriors' exotic appeal. They usually appear separately and were frequently cut out (one of the most popular applications of Engelbrecht's output); OCLC lists a single copy bound as a book with the title. - The combattants who aroused the greatest sensation were the fierce soldiers from the Habsburg monarchy's military border, first and foremost the Slavonian Pandours, notorious for their savagery. Ten engravings are dedicated to these vicious braves, including a portrait of their famous commander, Baron Francis Trenck, while nine more show Hungarian foot soldiers ("Tolpatches"), some on horseback. There is an unspecified Croat as well as a Dalmatian "Morlach"; a portrait of commander Johann Daniel von Menzel, like Trenck a master of the guerilla style; another of the towering Irishman James Kirkland, one of the "Potsdam Giants"; as well as a Prussian Hussar and a Lancer. The first two plates show the rulers Maria Theresia of Austria and Prussian King Frederick II who fought for sovereignty over Silesia. Each plate is accompanied by caption, usually a four-line rhyme pointing out the characteristics of the man depicted. Vividly coloured throughout in a contemporary hand with touches of gold heightening. Some slight thumbstaining, but very well preserved altogether in its first binding, its spine professionally restored. - OCLC 731447059 (Zurich).

Mit ca. 1 cm breitem Rand rundum, insgesamt etwas vergilbt und im Rand leicht knitterig. Literatur: Nagler (Vidal) 18.. Marguerite Gerards 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 Marguerite 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.

        Opera Omnia, tam antea sparsim edita, quam hactenus inedita

      Engraved frontis. port. of the author, another of Frederick III of Prussia, engraved vignettes on titles, & 91 engraved plates. Titles printed in red & black. Four vols. Large 4to, a handsome prize binding of mid-19th cent. blind-stamped black morocco, finely stamped arms in gilt of the "Académie de Paris, Prix du Concours Général," spines gilt, dentelles gilt, a.e.g. Lausanne & Geneva: M.M. Bousquet, 1742. First collected edition; a fine and handsome set in an attractive prize binding with an appealing provenance (see below). After Newton&#39;s death in 1727, Bernoulli was unchallenged as the leading mathematical preceptor to all Europe. Most of Bernoulli&#39;s writings appeared in various journals and remained uncollected until the present edition. "His chief discoveries are the exponential calculus, the treatment of trigonometry as a branch of analysis, the conditions for a geodesic, the determination of orthogonal trajectories, the solution of the brachistochrone, the statement that a ray of light traversed such a path that Smds [in Greek] is a minimum, and the enunciation of the principle of virtual work...The general adoption on the continent of the differential rather than the fluxional notation was largely due to his influence."-Ball, A Short Account of the History of Mathematics, p. 368. The recipient of this prize book was Adolphe Carnot (1839-1920), son of Hippolyte Carnot. Adolphe entered the École Polytechnique in 1858 and, upon completion, joined the École des Mines where he was a professor for more than thirty years. The book label in the first volume states that this set was awarded to Carnot for "Mathématiques Spéciales, Physique, 2e Prix." &#10087; Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, pp. 36-37-"the first edition of Jean Bernoulli&#39;s collected works brings together 189 of his papers and 59 of his lectures. The first volume is primarily devoted to problems in geometry and the early calculus, but also contains papers on muscular mechanics, the resistance of solids, and a geometrical demonstration of the motion of pendulums and projectiles in resisting and unresisting media. Volumes two and three are almost totally devoted to problems of mechanics, the first of these containing his theoretical essay on the maneuvering of vessels and related papers, as well as numerous contributions on the analysis of trajectories. His discourse on the laws governing the communication of movement opens volume three, which also contains his essay on celestial mechanics. The last volume contains contributions on the curvature of elastic plates, his mecanico-dynamical propositions, and problems in dynamics. Most important, its appearance in this volume represents the first printing of the Hydraulica, which was written in competition with his son, Daniel." .

        A Treatise of Fluxions. In Two Books

      41 folding engraved plates. 3 p.l., vi, 412 pp.; 1 p.l., 413-763, [1] pp. Two vols. 4to, cont. calf, spines nicely gilt, red morocco lettering pieces on spines. Edinburgh: T.W. & T. Ruddimans, 1742. First edition-- and a very handsome set printed on large and thick paper -- of the most important early presentation of Newton&#39;s calculus. "Maclaurin&#39;s Treatise of Fluxions (1742) has been described as the earliest logical and systematic publication of the Newtonian methods. It stood as a model of rigor until the appearance of Cauchy&#39;s Cours d&#39;analyse in 1821...The Treatise is otherwise noteworthy for the solution of a great number of problems in geometry, statics, and the theory of attractions. It contains an elaborate discussion of infinite series, including Maclaurin&#39;s text for convergence, as well as a remarkable investigation of curves of quickest descent and various isoperimetrical problems...Maclaurin also elaborated many of the principles enunciated by Newton in the Principia in this work, including problems in applied geometry and physics, grounded on the geometry of Euclid."-D.S.B., VIII, pp. 610-11. It incorporates in a revised form his On the Percussion of Bodies, the memoir published in 1724 which gained Maclaurin the prize of l&#39;Académie Royale des Sciences. A fine, handsome, and crisp set with the armorial bookplate of Col. George Callander of Craigforth. From the library of Haskell F. Norman with bookplate. This has become a scarce book, especially in such fine condition. .

        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.

Binding tight and firm. A good sound copy of an important astronomical book. Maupertuis (1698 - 1759) studied mathematics in Paris and became converted to Newtonian mechanics during a visit to London in 1728. This was his first published work and is considered the first unequivocal Newtonian text to come from a French scientist. "In it he objected to Cartesianism on the ground that it was unable to explain why Kepler's laws should hold." In his second book La Figure de la Terre (1738) he published the results of an expedition with the scientist Clairaut to Lapland to measure as accurately as possible the length of a degree of longitude, by which he was able to prove Newton's theory that the earth was flattened at the poles.

        Histoire des Revolutions de Perse, depuis le commencement de ce Siècle jusqu'à la fin du Règne de l'Usurpateur Aszraff.

      Chez Briasson,, A Paris, 1742 - 2 voll. in-8° (168x93mm), pp. (6), CX, (2) bianche, 368, (2) di approvazioni e privilegi, (2) bianche; (6), 430, (2); legatura coeva in pieno vitello marmorizzato con dorsi a nervetti adorni di titolo e tomaison in oro su doppio tassello granata, filetti e fregi ornamentali dorati entro scomparti. Tagli rossi, fogli di guardia marmorizzati. A fronte della p. 1 del primo volume, carta geografica ripiegata della Persia incisa su rame da De Berey. Ottimo esemplare. Reimpressione, anonima, ma dovuta alla penna dello scrittore gesuita Jean Antoine de Cerceau, di quest'anonima opera di storia, geografia ed etnografia della Persia e dell'Asia Centrale, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1728. L'opera fu poi ristampata anche col titolo Histoire de Thamas Kouli-Kan, Sophi de Perse. Oggetto principale della trattazione è, appunto, Thamas Kouli Kan, o Nadir Shah (1688-1747), uno dei massimi sovrani persiani, ma il lavoro, fondato sulle memorie storiche del Krusinski, contiene una quantità di notazioni sulla storia, la topografia, le religioni e i costumi della Persia e dell'Afghanistan (profusi cenni sono riservati a Kabul e a Ladak). L'attribuzione dell'opera non è del tutto certa, in quanto alcuni assegnano invece il volume al Frasses (tra di essi il Melzi e il Parenti). Il Du Cerceau (Parigi, 1670-castello di Véret, presso Tours, 1730), entrato tra i gesuiti diciottenne, fu autore di poemi latini, drammi, commedie, tutti facenti parte di una produzione mediocre severamente giudicata da Voltaire. Appena più rilevante la produzione in prosa, in cui egli si improvvisò poligrafo trattando piuttosto superficialmente e attingendo a fonti di seconda mano una quantità di questioni storiche. Precettore del Principe di Conti, lo accompagnò tredicenne in un castello nei pressi di Tours e venne da lui accidentalmente ucciso mentre il ragazzo, appassionato di caccia, maneggiava incautamente un fucile Wilson, p. 63.
