        Recherches sur les vertus de l'eau de goudron, o? l'on joint des Réfléctions Philosophiques sur diverses autres sujets. Avec deux Lettres de l'Auteur.

      Pierre Mortier,, Amsterdam 1745 - FIRST EDITION IN FRENCH OF BERKELEY'S LAST WORK, Siris, a chain of philosophical reflections and enquiries concerning the virtues of tar-water (1744) and of his two letters on the subject to Thomas Prior. At the time of its publication, Siris was the most popular of the author's many works. Berkeley had observed the use of tar-water among the native Americans and came to regard it as a panacaea in medicine, setting up an apparatus for its manufacture. "He recommends it not only in fevers, diseases of the lungs, cancers, scrofula, throat diseases, apoplexies, chronic disorders of all kinds, but also as a general drink for infants. It strengthens their bodies and sharpens their intellects. It is good for cattle. It is good for all climates, land and sea, for rich and poor, high and low livers, and he had himself drunk a gallon of it in a few hours" (DNB).The Siris is, however, more than just a medical work and the consideration of tar-water led Berkeley into a lengthy chain of reflections on the principles of the universe and of divine providence. 8vo (164 × 91mm.), pp. xxiv, 343, [1]. Woodcut ornaments. Contemporary calf, gilt panelled spine with flower tools, red morocco label. Small chip to head of spine. An excellent copy, clean and crisp in a nice contemporary binding.

        South Prospect of Worksop Mannor, in the County of Nottingham

      London: Engraved by Saml. & Natl. Buck and Published according to Act of Parliament, No. 1 Garden Court, Middle Temple, 1745. Engraving. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, mild rippling and creasing, and a bit of minor mat burn. 15 x 23 1/2 inches. 16 1/2 x 25 3/4 inches. A spectacular panoramic view of Worksop Manor, the sprawling family seat of the Duke of Norfolk. Between 1720 and 1752, Samuel Buck and his younger brother Nathaniel toured England and Wales to record the castles and abbeys that scattered the countryside. Their detailed views provide an invaluable record of England's architectural antiquities, offering, in some cases, the only trace of ruined or lost buildings. Nathaniel and Samuel executed over 400 views in addition to 100 general views of English and Welsh cities. These detailed panoramas remain some of their most sought-after works, providing a fascinating view of England's most prominent cities. The Worksop Manor pictured here, a superb example of Elizabethan architecture, burnt down in 1761, not very long after the Buck's made this engraving.

        Facsimile Manuscript report to Guatemalan Governor José Estachería

      16 facsimile hand written pages with diagrams and three fold out diagrams of Palenque. Folio (12 1/2" x 8 1/2") bound in velum with black label and gilt lettering to cover. Testimonio's Tabula Americae. Limited to 980 copies of which this is 169. Spanish artillery Captain Antonio del Río?s (ca. 1745-ca. 1789) discovery of tangible evidence of an amazingly rich Maya past and this printed report were the beginning of the study of this truly lost civilization. In May 1786 upon the order of the Spanish Crown, Governor and Brigadier General of the Royal Audencia of Guatemala, Don José Estachería sent Río to Chiapas to investigate rumors of an ancient city near Santo Domingo del Palenque and determine the origin of its inhabitants. Rio was preceded by other visitors to Palenque, the most recent being two brief forays by José Antonio Calderón, a local official, and Spanish architect Antonio Bernasconi, whose sparse observations prompted the order for the full-scale investigation by Río. The Spanish captain made up for his lack of antiquarian training with his zeal, hiring seventy-nine Maya locals to assault with crowbars and axes the abandoned, tree-engulfed, seventh-century city of Palenque. In his report Río describes and comments on the hieroglyphs he saw. Río sent his manuscript report to Guatemalan Governor José Estachería, and it was preserved in Madrid. Almendáriz?s original drawings were recently found in a private European collection and published: Estampas de Palenque (not included here), Madrid: Testimonio, 1993. After the end of the Napoleonic Wars, the author?s manuscript and Waldeck?s drawings re-emerged in a still mysterious manner to be published in England. Publisher Henry Berthoud bought the manuscript from a mysterious Dr. McQuy (McQueen?) in Jamaica at the end of April 1822. Capitalizing on public interest in American indigenous cultures as well as in Romantic ruins, Berthoud published Rio?s work in hopes of a popular bestseller, which might otherwise have been lost.Condition:A Fine copy.

An attractive map of the Bay of Fundy by one of the greatest cartographers of the eighteenth-century. This elegant composition was published as part of Moll's Atlas Minor, and charts the majority of the bay, with the New Brunswick coast at the top and Nova Scotia at the lower margin. As the title notes, this map includes a great deal of useful information: soundings, rocks, harbours, etc.: all of which is vital in an area where huge tides were the norm and rocks and sandbars make it one of the more dangerous places in the world for shipping. The inset of the harbour of Annapolis Royal continues the good work of the main map by including a large number of soundings in addition to depictions of the physical features.

        Vue du Chateau de Trianon du cote du Parterre

      Paris: circa 1745. Hand-coloured engraving. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition. Framed in a handsome black frame with a gold washline mount. Image size: 8 3/4 x 18 1/2 inches. Framed: 17 1/4 x 26 1/2 inches. A magnificent view of a stunning chateau in Trianon by the celebrated landscape engraver Jacques Rigaud. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a trend developed amongst English and European artists and printmakers, which sought to visually record their country's natural beauties. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, artists and printmakers began to publish topographical prints of important sights and architectural attractions. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These topographical prints were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those vicarious tourists who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. By joining this printing trend Jacques Rigaud made a name for himself in both France and England, and became one of the most successful French landscape engravers. He dedicated his artistic life to producing delicate engraving of national beauties across France. He executed a large series of works depicting France's stately homes and he worked in England, where he was commissioned to illustrate the celebrated gardens at Stowe. Rigaud's work influenced an entire generation of English and French printmakers; his delicate formal engravings established a classical format for topographical prints, which would be used until the onset of the nineteenth century. Le Blanc, Manuel de L'Amateur D'Estampes III, p. 337 (Le Blanc mistakenly confuses Jacques Rigaud with his nephew Jean Baptiste Rigaud and attributes Jacques' work wrongly) Clayton, The English Print 1688-1802 p. 156-157

        A View in Lyme Park (With that extraordinary Custom of driving the Stags;) the property of Peter Legh Esqr

      Aug. 27 1745. Copper engraving. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, mild creasing, and a few skillfully repaired small tears in the margins. 15 3/8 x 21 3/8 inches. 17 1/8 x 23 1/8 inches. A picturesque view of Lyme Park in Cheshire, the ancestral estate of the Legh family, after the celebrated landscape artist Smith of Derby. This beautifully rendered print is one of 23 plates Vivares engraved after Smith. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century, a trend developed among English artists and printmakers who sought to visually record the natural beauty of England and Wales. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, English printmakers began to publish topographical prints of the important sights in the British Isles. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside they were meant to encourage public recognition of the beauty and history of England. They were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those armchair travelers who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. One of the earliest and most influential landscape artists to begin this trend was Thomas Smith who came to be known as "Smith of Derby." Smith traveled the north of England painting famous houses and beautiful views. He was one of the first artists to depict wild landscape scenes, which became immensely fashionable with the development of the "picturesque landscape" towards the end of the century. Smith's paintings not only captured the English countryside at the onset of the Industrial Revolution, but also recorded the activities of visiting tourists and local inhabitants. These works capture a period in England's history, which was forever changed by the wheels of progress. Before the mills and the factories came to dominate the landscape of northern England, Smith depicted its wild beauty and breathtaking scenery. This beautiful view of the bucolic scenery of Lyme Park is a lovely example of Smith's superior work. As the title states, the practice of driving the stags through what was called "Stag Pond" each year at Midsummer was indeed extraordinary. There were large herds of red deer and wild cattle on the property, and at some point it became traditional to drive the deer around the park, ending with the swim through the pond. The last stag has just entered the water and two of the first in line are having a brief skirmish (though it looks rather like a dance). We have not yet discovered the purpose of the summer swim.

        [A View of Dunnington Cliff on the River Trent]

      1745. Engraving with heavy early colour. Trimmed as usual and mounted on early washline background. Mounted on watermarked Whatman paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 14 1/8 x 20 ½ inches. 19 ½ x 26 ¼ inches. A breathtaking landscape print by the celebrated Thomas Smith of Derby, engraved by Vivares, from the views of Derbyshire Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a trend developed amongst English artists and printmakers, which sought to visually record the natural beauties of England and Wales. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, English printmakers began to publish topographical prints of the important sights in the British Isles. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside they were meant to encourage public recognition of the beauty and history of England. They were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those vicarious tourists who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. One of the earliest and most influential landscape engravers was Francois Vivares. Vivares was born in France and raised in Geneva, but at the age of eighteen established himself in London. He exhibited regularly with the Incorporated Society of Artists and was highly regarded for his meticulous technique and bold style. Vivares is considered the father of English landscape engraving, his fine work inspiring generations of English engravers. Like Smith of Derby, Vivares was instrumental in introducing the concept of the "picturesque landscape" into English art. His magnificent engravings captured the golden age of the English countryside, before it was forever changed by the factories and mills of the Industrial Revolution. This magnificent print is a wonderful example of Vivares' unique style. By trimming the image within the platemark and mounting it on a decorative washline background, the print has the effect of a landscape painting. The likeness is heightened by the addition of added body colour in the image and the use of a heavy painterly technique of engraving. This practice was common amongst engravers and print sellers who wished to capitalize on this trend for picturesque landscapes. This print is from the famed Oettingen-Wallerstein collection, which was compiled over two centuries by various members of the royal household. The collection is known for its stunning impressions and the immaculate condition of its prints.

Rather it begins with the last prayers of the day that a person must recite, the prayers to be recited when a person retires for the night, the Keri’at Shema Al Ha’mita, and concludes with a series of miscellaneous prayers and blessings, for different feasts and occasions that might arise throughout the day. ILLUSTRATION: f. 1, Title-page, with an architectural frame, the arch flanked by Moses the Lawgiver (right) and Aaron the High Priest (left) within niches; atop the arch, appear hands raised in priestly benediction, and on both sides maidens are carrying a palm frond and a bough, respectively; f. 3, Initial word panel, the word Ribono (“Master”) in gold; f. 3v, Initial word panel, the word Elo-heinu (“Our God”) in silver; f. 5, three-quarter page miniature of a bedroom scene of a woman asleep in her canopied bed; f. 5v, Initial word panel, the word Baruch (“Blessed”); f. 9, Initial and figural word panel, the angel holding aloft the word Ha-Malach (“The angel”); f. 9v, rectangular miniature of a monarch (with feminine features) resting on a regal canopied bed, surrounded by armored guards; f. 11, full-page miniature, King David playing his harp; f. 11v, Initial word panel, Hebrew word A shrei (“Happy”) f. 16, miniature of a seven-branched Menorah; f. 17, three-quarter page miniature of the ten hanging sons of Haman, here with eleven hanging figures; f. 17v, three-quarter page miniature of a round and naked Bacchus; f. 19v, half-page miniature of a well-tended and meticulously manicured garden and fruit orchard; f. 21, half-page miniature of a rainbow and a matron with a prayer book, in its lower lines the artist signs his name “Jospe Schmalkalden of Mainz"; f. 22, two small miniatures, a Jewish monarch, bearded, and a clean-shaven non-Jewish monarch; f. 22v, two small miniatures, and a gentile scholastic; f. 23v, half-page miniature of a woman reciting the blessing on Friday evening; f. 24v, the colophon in gold, signing his work “Tam ve-nishlam shevach l’E-l Borei Olam” [Completed with praise to the Creator of the World]. PROVENANCE: Written and illuminated in Mainz for the wife of Joseph Däern Katz, so inscribed on the title page (miniature on f. 24 also signed). Known from at least two other manuscripts, a printed edition, and some documents, Jospe Schmalkalden emerges as a Jewish artist of the highest calibre apparently active between the years 1738 and 1757 in the Rhineland (Mainz and Worms), and possibly with in the Netherlands. Belonged to Joseph Gradenwitz (1917-2006), Berlin-born collector and book binder. Belonged to Julian Edison, his ex-libris, inside front cover, an ardent bibliophile since the 1950s. CONDITION: Light discoloration and minor marginal staining, minimal abrasions in few places. Full description and photographs available (TM 601).

Pe. Fr. Manoel de Sto. Antonio, sendo Prior Gerál no anno de 1745. In fólio (de 28x22cm) com [ii], 94 pags. Encadernação [original] da época inteira de pele marmoreada com nervos e ferros a ouro na lombada (representando querubins); e ferros rolados nas esquadrias das pastas. Corte das folhas carminado. Apresenta carimbo comercial do século XIX na folha de guarda [Livraria Antiga e Moderna, Rua de São Nicolau, 113, Lisboa]. Título unificado no rótulo da lombada: CVST DO O DEBEL [Costumes do Convento de Bellem] Manuscrito a uma só mão, firme e legível, composto em várias etapas (nuances da tinta) e com as 2 páginas iniciais inumeradas acrescentadas no final da sua execução.No início de cada capitulo apresenta os respetivos títulos. Manuscrito contendo a Regra interna ou regulamento do ritual e da vida monástica dos monges jeronimitas do Mosteiro de Santa Maria de Belém ou, vulgo, Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. Não são conhecidas outras referências a manuscritos ou obras impressas com este tema da organizaçãoquotidiana da vida desta 'Comunidade' tal como é referida em cada capítulo. Existe contudo na BNP outro manuscrito contemporâneo do presente, contendo a orgânica do Capítulo [Assembleia Geral] do Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, complementar das regras da presente obra, guardado [Título: Compendio das ceremonias do capítulo geral dos Monges]. O Mosteiro dos Jerónimos é um mosteiro manuelino, testemunho monumental da riqueza dos Descobrimentos portugueses. Situa-se em Belém, Lisboa, à entrada do Rio Tejo. Constitui o ponto mais alto da arquitectura do manuelino, sendo o mais notável conjunto monástico do século XVI em Portugal e uma das principais igrejas-salão da Europa. Destacam-se no mosteiro o seu claustro completado em 1544, e a porta sul de complexo desenho geométrico. Os elementos decorativos são repletos de símbolos da arte da navegação e de esculturas de plantas e animais exóticos. O Mosteiro dos Jerónimos foi reconstruído e ampliado para exercer funções civis no final do século XIX; declarado Monumento Nacional em 1907; e em 1983 a UNESCO classificou-o como 'Património Cultural de toda a Humanidade'. Em 2007 foi eleito como uma das sete maravilhas de Portugal. No Mosteiro dos Jerónimos encontram-se entre outros os túmulos dos reis D. Manuel I e sua mulher, D. Maria, D. João III e sua mulher D. Catarina, D. Sebastião e D. Henrique, de Vasco da Gama, de Luís Vaz de Camões, de Alexandre Herculano e de Fernando Pessoa. Em 2010 teve 644729 visitantes, sendo 92 % estrangeiros. O mosteiro deve o nome à Ordem de São Jerónimo aí estabelecida até 1834. Para perpetuar a memória do Infante D. Henrique, pela sua grande devoção a Nossa Senhora, e ainda pela crença em S. Jerónimo, o rei D. Manuel I decidiu fundar o Mosteiro de Sta. Maria de Belém, perto da cidade de Lisboa nos últimos anos do século XV (pouco depois de Vasco da Gama ter regressado da sua viagem à Índia), tendo sido financiado em grande parte pelos lucros do comércio das especiarias. Os monges teriam como funções, entre outras, de rezar pela alma do rei e prestar assistência espiritual aos navegadores que da praia do Restelo partiam para descoberta do mundo. A Ordem de São Jerónimo é uma ordem religiosa contemplativa. A jornada do monge jerónimo é dedicada ao trabalho, a tarde é dedicada a exercícios próprios da vida contemplativa e intelectual (oração, leitura, estudo, etc.). A leitura desta regra costumeira informa-nos que, no decurso do dia

Ink stamp on front flyleaf of Starhemberg Family Library at Castle Eferding, Austria (see below). Cohen-de Ricci, p. 978; Brunet V, 666; Graesse VI, II, 33. Joints with slight wear, minor worming to top two spine compartments, covers with a bit of worming and a few marks, almost invisible repair to inner upper marginal corner of final plate and following blank, otherwise AN OUTSTANDING COPY, THE TEXT EXCEPTIONALLY FRESH, BRIGHT, AND CLEAN. This is a remarkably fresh and clean contemporary copy of one of the finest illustrated books of the 18th century. It is a wonderful oversized illustrated Venetian printing of a great Italian classic, which the normally reserved Graesse describes as a "magnificent edition in regards to the printing and the paper: the 20 plates and the headpieces by Piazzetta are beyond all praise." The engravings are highly detailed, romantic rococo illustrations of a major artist, Giambatista Piazzetta (1682-1754). Palluchini (as reported by Benezit) comments on the "subtle unity and vibrant luminosity" of Piazzetta's chiaroscuro, and he remarks that "Piazzetta's striking use of light, together with the bold compositions and handling seen in some of his works, make him an important precursor of Tiepolo." As for the author, Britannica says it as well as anyone: in his "Jerusalem Delivered," Tasso (1544-95) "aimed at ennobling the Italian epic style by preserving strict unity of plot and heightening poetic diction. He chose Virgil for his model, took the first crusade for [his] subject, [and] infused the fervor of religion into his conception of the hero Godfrey." But his inclination toward romance clashed with his original epical intentions, and the work became a classic early example of the poetry of sentiment. "This sentiment, refined, noble, natural, steeped in melancholy, exquisitely graceful, pathetically touching, breathes throughout the episodes of the 'Gerusalemme,' finds metrical expression in the languishing cadence of its mellifluous verse, and sustains the ideal life of those seductive heroines whose names were familiar as household words to all Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries." Unfortunately, the work, while still in manuscript, was condemned by contemporary critics on both religious and literary grounds, and the sensitive and conscientious author suffered a nervous breakdown, was later visited by a violent insanity, and was confined for seven years. When he was released, he discovered that his masterpiece had been published and that he was now famous. He was to have received the laurel crown with which Petrarch alone had been honored, but he died just before the presentation. Our copy comes from the collection of Starhemberg princes of Eferding, the best known of whom was Prince Ernst Rüdiger von Starhemberg, who as vice chancellor of Austria in the 1930s made a stand against the German takeover. The prince is featured in the historical novel, "The Sceptre," by Dorothy Jane Mills.

        Mappa Generalis Totius Imperii Russici

      Grande mappa raffigurante per esteso l?Impero Russo che si sviluppa dalla Finlandia alla Kamchatka, pubblicata nell?Atlas Russicus. Joseph Nicholas De L?Isle (1688-1768), fratello di Guillaume, divenne amico di Pietro il Grande, a cui fornì molte informazioni relative all?Impero. Visse in Russia per ventidue anni, come responsabile dell?Osservatorio Reale di San Pietroburgo; si trasferì poi in Francia nel 1747, dove portò la maggior parte del materiale a cui aveva avuto accesso, in modo particolare quello relativo alle esplorazioni lungo le coste settentrionali del Pacifico, sia in Russia, sia in America, che poi pubblicò. L?Accademia Russa delle Scienze venne creata nel 1724 a San Pietroburgo allo scopo non solo di fornire un servizio di coordinamento e sviluppo delle scienze, ma anche per fornire soluzioni concrete a problemi reali. Furono molti gli scienziati stranieri invitati a prendervi parte. Joseph Nicolas de l'Isle venne invitato a presiedere il dipartimento di geografia e si trasferì in Russia nel 1726. La realizzazione del primo Atlas Russicus richiese molto tempo, data l?estensione del Paese. Venne reperito e analizzato il materiale cartografico preesistente. Uno degli studiosi russi che lavorarono al progetto fu Kirilow, autore della prima mappa della Russia nel 1734. L?Atlas Russicus, composto da venti carte, vide la luce nel 1747. La carta del De L?Isle venne copiata da molti editori, tra cui l?italiano Santini, la cui opera fu poi ristampata da Remondini. Incisione in rame, coloratura coeva dei margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 965x555. A large map covering the full extent of the Russian Empire stretching from Finland to Kamchatka, published in the Atlas Russicus. Copper engraving, contemporary outline colour, in excellent condition. The Atlas Russicus was published in 1747 and contained twenty maps. De L?Isle's map was copied by many publishers, including the Italian Santini, whose map was later issued by Remondini. Joseph Nicholas De L?Isle (1688-1768), Guillaume?s brother, became a friend of Peter the Great and supplied him with information on the Russian Empire. He stayed in Russia for twenty-two years and was in charge of the Royal Observatory in St. Petersburg, returning to France in 1747, taking with him much of the material he had access to, particularly relating to explorations along the northern Pacific coasts of Russia and America, which he subsequently published. The Russian Academy of Sciences was created in 1724 in St Petersburg. It was not only intended to coordinate and produce science but also to aid in solutions to practical problems. Many foreign scientists were invited to participate. Joseph Nicolas de l' Isle was invited to head the department of geography and came in 1726. The making of the first atlas Russicus, not surprisingly considering the size of the country, took a long time. New bearings in trigonometry had to be taken all over the country. Existing cartographic material had to be obtained and analysed. Among the Russian scientists that worked on the atlas was Kirilow, the man who published the first map of Russia in 1734. Dimensioni 965x555. San Pietroburgo St. Petersbourg

In basso a destra è una scena con le navi a vela più. In alto a sinistra è un enorme titolo decorativo cartiglio con figure allegoriche, capi indiani, esploratori, cartografi, una flotta di navi, pescatori e la fauna selvatica. Very unusual elongated map of the East coast of Canada. A beautiful map of Northeastern Canada, including Nova Scotia, Labrador and Newfoundland. This is the second state of the map originally drawn by Seutter and engraved by Lotter, with Lotter's imprint. The map's vertical format elongates the geography and distorts Newfoundland. The St. Lawrence River runs nearly north-south. It is very detailed, especially along the coastlines and rivers. Many place names, both European and Indian. At bottom right is a scene with several sailing ships. At top left is a huge decorative title cartouche featuring allegorical figures, Indian chiefs, explorers, mapmakers, a fleet of ships, fishermen and wildlife. Augsburg Augsburg 490 580

        La Gerusalemme liberata.

      Giambattista Albrizzi 1745 In Folio (452x315); occhiello, splendida antiporta incisa in rame, frontespizio in rosso e nero con bella vignetta allegorica in rame raffigurante Venezia, ritratto di Maria Teresa dedicataria dell'opera eseguito da Felice Pollenzani, 10 carte non num. con la dedica, il privilegio di stampa, il catalogo degli associati, carte 254 numerate, 1 non num. alla fine con bella vignetta, 20 incisioni in rame fuori testo da disegni di Piazzetta, raffiguranti i momenti salienti dei singoli canti, poste ognuna all'inizio del rispettivo canto contornate da elegante cornice barocca con motivi decorativi floreali, vasi e putti; 20 incisioni all'inizio dei canti, a racchiudere l'argomento dello stesso, a carattere campestre, bellico, mitologico; 20 cul-de-lampe (fra cui 6 a piena pagina e 2, quella dei canti decimo ed undecimo, su carta non num. f.t.), 21 capilettera animati in rame. Legatura in tutta pelle coeva.Magnifico esemplare in prima tiratura della prima edizione con le dediche ai sottoscrittori poste al piede delle 20 incisioni, stampato su carta fine. Riguardo a questa opera si sono sempre considerate due tirature della prima edizione a seconda del ritratto di Maria Teresa e del testo posto sotto ai rami (la variante A contempla il ritratto "da vecchia" e le dediche ai sottoscrittori, per cui la nostra copia sarebbe nella variante A, e la B ha il ritratto "ringiovanito" e componimenti invece delle dediche). Recenti studi hanno però evidenziato anche numerose differenze tipografiche fra le due tirature, per cui si può parlare di due differenti edizioni molto simili. La cosiddetta "Gerusalemme del Piazzetta" è considerata la massima espressione del libro figurato veneziano del Settecento, illustrata dalle splendide incisioni su disegni di Giambattista Piazzetta, che seguì anche la parte incisoria personalmente; l'autore è raffigurato nell'ultima vignetta insieme ad Albrizzi a coronamento della pubblicazione. Morazzoni 256: "Non a torto è considerato il più bel libro veneziano?G.B. Piazzetta ha assecondato i desideri dell'editore da pari suo, superando in brio e felicità d'invenzioni la già bella edizione del Bousset, disegnando 70 composizioni e sfoggiandovi una piacevolezza che ci fa passare da meraviglia in meraviglia?è un'edizione che ben caratterizza un'epoca, e ben si merita tutta l'ammirazione che oggi ancora la circonda".Splendido esemplare assai marginoso ed in perfetto stato di conservazione, più grande di tutte le ultime copie passate sul mercato.Sander 1887; Gamba 948; Cohen-de Ricci 978; Gamba, 948; Morazzoni, 256 e pag. 123-26: "non a torto è considerato il più bel libro veneziano... G. B. Piazzetta ha assecondato i desideri dell'editore da pari suo, superando in brio e felicità d'invenzioni le già belle edizioni del Bossuet... ci fa passare di meraviglia in meraviglia".

        La Gerusalemme Liberata. Con le figure di Giambattista Piazzetta. Alla Sacra Real Maestà di Maria Teresa d'Austria. -

      Venezia, Albrizzi, 1745.In-folio. Piena pelle, dorso con tassello, nervi e ricchi fregi oro, ampie ed elaborate bordure dorate sui piatti: un?ammirevole legatura moderna in stile veneziano del ?700. Grandiosa antiporta allegorica, vignetta sul frontespizio, ritratto di Maria Teresa giovane, 20 stupende tavv. f.t. con stemma e dedica nel margine inferiore, 20 graziose testate che racchiudono l'argomento, 20 belle vignette finali, 6 a p. pag., 2 f.t., e 21 piacevoli capilettera, il tutto finemente inc. in rame. (12), 256 (mal num. 253) pp.; un paio di strappetti abilmente riparati e qualche insignificante macchiolina; buon esemplare marginoso, stampato su carta forte. E' noto che di questo celebre libro, considerato il più bello stampato a Venezia nel ?700 e il più bello del poema, esistono due tirature: questa è la seconda in cui è stata migliorata sia la qualità artistica delle illustrazioni che la veste tipografica del testo «dando alla pagina, come risultato, una leggerezza ed ariosità che a stento si trova negli esemplari dell?altra edizione» (Radaeli: Alcune note al Tasso Piazzetta). Cohen 978. Gamba 948. Morazzoni, Il libro figurato veneziano del Settecento, 256 e pp. 123-126. «The most famous of all Venetian eighteenth-century books...» (Haskell, Patrons and Painters, 335). It is beautifully illustrated with an allegorical frontispiece, a portrait of Empress Maria Teresa as a young woman, 20 plates (each one with a dedication and coat-of-arms), and many head and tail-pieces, all very finely engraved. A few small marginal tears neatly repaired and some pale spots; a good copy in an excellent period style calf binding, with richly gilt covers and spine.

        DON RANVDO DE COLIBRADOS eller Fattigdom og Hoffærdighed Comoedie i fem Acter, ved Ludvig Holberg.

      Kiøbenhavn, hos Christian Gottlob Mengel og Compagnie, 1745. 8vo. 110 s. Titelblad lidt plettet og med lille reparation ellers rent og pænt eksemplar på skrivepapir indbundet i nyt helpergament i gammel stil.. Dette er den første af Holbergs komedier, som på titelbladet havde Holbergs navn.Mengel påtænkte at lave en tysk udgave af Den Danske Skue-Plads, men da Don Ranudo uvist af hvilken årsag endnu ikke var kommet på tryk, fik han Holbergs samtykke til også at oversætte den til tysk, og det blev således den eneste af Holbergs komedier, som først udkom i oversættelse og også den eneste, hvor hans navn forekommer på titelbladet af originaludgaven. Men udover at udsende den tyske udgave, lavede Mengel også en dansk separatudgave meget mod Holbergs vilje, som gik rettens vej og vandt sagen; udgaven blev konfiskeret fra Mengel og så i hast udsendtes et oplag i E.H. Berlings navn, i første omgang efter Mengels udgave, men senere på året blev et nyt oplag lavet, hvor de værste trykfejl blev rettet. Dette eksemplar er således den første danske udgave overhovedet.Ehrencron-Müller II, 458. Johansen 13, B1

        LINNÉ, CARL (von).

      Flora Svecica exhibens plantas per regnum Sveciæ crescentes, systematice cum differentiis specierum, synonymis autorum, nominibus incolarum, solo locorum, usu pharmacopæorum. Sthlm, L. Salvius, 1745. 8:o. (4),XII,(4),419,(1) s. & 1 utvikbar grav. plansch. Ngt nött lackat ljusbrunt hfrbd från början av 1900-talet med upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerad rygg, röd titeletikett och röda snitt. Ryggen lite blekt och med några smärre fläckar. Titelbladet förstärkt i inre marginalen. Någon enstaka äldre marginalanteckning. Sporadiska småfläckar, t.ex. i nedre marginalen på s. 64-67 och 356-57 samt i övre marginalen och in i texten på s. 86-87. Smärre bläckfläckar i yttermarginalen på s. 130-31. Med Olof J. Bromans namnteckning i nedre marginalen på titelbladet, Carl G. Alms och Ingvar Nordins exlibris samt den senares namnteckning. En oidentifierad namnteckning på försättsbladet, en förvärvsanteckning på eftersättsbladet och Botaniska institutionens i Uppsala stpl och duplikatstpl.. Soulsby A catalogue of the works of Linnaeus 407. Krok Bibliotheca botanica suecana 17. Andra upplagan utkom 1755. Arbetet utgavs under vad Sten Lindroth kallar "Linnés patriotiska decennium" då även "Fauna Svecica" publicerades och de tre statligt finansierade resorna genomfördes. Planschen avbildar linnean. Exemplaret har tillhört kyrkoherden i Hudiksvall Olof Johansson Broman (1676-1750), som även var verksam som läkare, men är mest känd för sitt arbete om Hälsingland, "Glysisvallur". Han hade fått stora delar av sitt bibliotek bränt av ryssarna 1721, däribland sitt första manuskript till "Glysisvallur". Hans efterlämnade bibliotek såldes på två bokauktioner 1757 respektive 1761. Broman hade vissa kontakter med Linné och denne besökte honom 1729 när han som 22-årig student anträdde resan till Lappland. Linné hade även delar av Bromans arbeten till låns och föredrog olika naturvetenskapliga meddelanden från denne i Vetenskapsakademien, där Broman dock föll igenom vid invalet 1740
