Très rare ouvrage. L'auteur, lapidaire né à Berne, fut arrêté en 1743 à Lisbonne et condamné à 4 années de galères, pour avoir refusé de révéler les secrets de la Franc-maçonnerie. La 1ere partie relate le procès qui lui fut fait par le Saint-Office portugais. La 2°partie contient l'origine de ce Tribunal, elle est extraite d'un livre devenu introuvable "grâce aux soins que l'Inquisition et ses familiers ont eu d'en acheter et de brûler tous les exemplaires". La 3° partie "sert de preuves à tout ce qui est avancé dans les deux précédentes, des injustices, des cruautés, des abominations de ce Tribunal dans la relation simple et naïve de divers actes et avantures avérées et qui sont publiques en Espagne et au Portugal, comme en France; mais dont on n'ose parler, dans les deux premiers roïaumes, qu'entre quatre yeux et après avoir bien fermé les véroux." (sic) Jean Coustos était entré en maçonnerie en 1730, et il s'installa à Paris la même année appelé par son ami le peintre Louis Colins. Il y fonda une des premières loges françaises, composée de nombreux notables dont le Duc de Villeroy. C'est pourquoi elle sera nommée "Coustos-Villeroy". En fait on sait maintenant, après les études du Dr S. Vatcher, que Coustos révéla tout le rituel maçonnique. Sa confession fut retrouvée dans les archives de Lisbonne et publiée en 1955 dans le vol. LXVI des "Ars Quatuor Coronatorum". Sur intervention du Roi George II d'Angleterre, Coustos fut libéré en 1744. ¶ Dorbon 932: "Ouvrage qui est devenu d'une excessive rareté" - Fesch col.438 - Guaïta n°195 - Wolfstieg n°14566 "Sehr Selten" - cat. maç.

        Impressment order to Captain Charles Windham, "By the Commissioners for Executing the Office of Lord High Admiral".

      London: Office of Admiralty, 10 December 1745. Printed sheet completed in manuscript, 395 x 235 mm. A rare example of one of the Admiralty-printed orders relating to impressment as promulgated in 1745. This particular example was made out to Captain Windham commanding HMS Duke, and is signed by Anson only a year after he returned from his circumnavigation, as well as his fellow Lords of the Admiralty George Grenville and Henry Legge, and Secretary to the Admiralty Thomas Corbett.Windham was thus empowered to impress seamen for his own command and for others of His Majesty's ships as needed. HMS Duke was a 17th-century ship, named Vanguard when first launched, rebuilt after sinking in 1703 and again rebuilt in 1739 as a 90-gun second rate, at which point the ship was renamed the Duke.Anson had joined the Admiralty Board in December 1744, soon after his return from the circumnavigation and at the height of his fame. He subsequently served as First Lord of the Admiralty from June 1751 to November 1756, and again from June 1757 until his death. Torn with slight loss at upper left, old folds; very good.

        Planisphere Representant Toute L'Etendue du Monde.

      Amsterdam: Reiner Ottens, 1745. Engraved handcoloured map with ornate neoclassical ornamentation, 538 x 313 mm. (sheet size). A magnificent French early eighteenth-century map of the world depicting the orb resting upon the shoulders of a finely engraved Hercules, complete with club and lion-skin cloak. The map is from the Atlas de la Navigation et du Commerce first published by Louis Renard and reissued twice by the Amsterdam bookseller Reiner Ottens in 1739 and 1745. This is a partially coloured issue, with the continents treated in primary colours, and is a fine example of Dutch neoclassical ornamentation.This map treats Australia as a super-continent: it is labelled both Terres Australes and Nouvelle Hollande and incorporates qualities of both geographical conceptions. While the Australian coast has no pretensions to exactitude it is nonetheless interesting that a strait is shown between New Guinea and Terres Australes. The extreme extension of the antipodes on this map is unusual given the north polar perspective it is generated from.Louis Renard (c.1678-1746), was a French born entrepreneur and spy for the English monarchy who flourished in Amsterdam as a printer and bookseller. He published a wide range of works aside from his maps and atlases, and is best known for his beautifully illustrated handbook of tropical marine fishes first published in 1719. In addition to selling books and prints, Renard traded as an apothecary and broker of English bonds in the Netherlands. For some years he was in the employment of the English crown as an agent and spy, and during his lifetime worked for Queen Anne, the Kings George I and George II. Fine.

        Reglas utiles para los aficionados a danzar: provechoso divertimiento de los que gustan tocar instrumentos. Y politicas advertencias a todo genero de personas. Adornado con varias laminas.Capoa, Joseph Testore, 1745. Small 8vo (14×10 cm). With 35 woodcuts in text (including many full-page), 7 folding leaves with woodcut music notation and letterpress text, and some letterpress text set along curves. Many of the full-page woodcuts and some on the folding leaves also include dance notation. Mid 19th-century gold-tooled green calf, with the emblematic device of the "Bibliotheca de Salvá" and initials VSP (=Vicente Salvá y Pérez) on each board.

      - Biblioteca de Salvá 2513 (this copy); Derra de Moroda 925; Huth library 2848; cf. S.S. Bueno "Reglas útiles para los aficionados a danzar , de Bartolomé Ferriol i Boxeraus" ; Magriel, p. 98 (Malaga ed.); Palau 90688-90789 (Naples & Malaga ed.). One of the three editions, all dated 1745, of a richly illustrated work on dancing by the Catalan dance instructor D. Bartolome Ferriol y Boxereaux. Derra de Moroda considers it one of the two principal works of 18th-century dance in Spain ("a very rare book"), although it primarily describes the practice of French dance then in vogue. The main text is divided into 3 parts treating the different steps of French dance, the movement of the legs and arms and the art of choreography. It shows both the dance notation of Feuillet and that of Rameau. The book is fascinating not only as an important record of dance and its notation, but also for its experimental graphic design.From the Salvá library, formed by Vicente Salvá y Pérez (1780-1849) and his son, Pedro Salvá y Mallén (1811-1869). Title-page restored in the gutter margin and leaf C2 with a small corner torn off just touching the catchword. Very good copy of one of the principal sources on the history of dancing in Spain in the 18th century.

The present second edition combines these two works, leaving out some short essays.The first volume consists of essays on Japanese marriage ceremonies, the second is devoted to funeral ceremonies and some other feasts, and includes an account of "dosia", a powdered recreational and medicinal drug, while the final volume consists of a series of anecdotes about the shoguns.In very good condition, with some plates slightly tattered at the edges.

        A Perspective View of the Engine, made use of for Sawing off under Water, The Piles which help'd to support the Centers, for turning the Arches of Westminster Bridge most humbly inscribed to the Right Honble. The Commissioners for building the said Bridge by the Inventor.

      May 1, 1745., [London], - An underwater saw Engraved print with manuscript annotation. An intriguing print showing an underwater saw, signed by the inventor. The inventor, William Etheridge (1709-1776) was a master carpenter. He worked with James King to build the first bridge at Westminster, and took over as foreman after King died. As well as the underwater saw, he also invented a battering ram to help strike the centres. He also worked on the Walton Bridge and designed Queens' Bridge in Cambridge. His name and profession has been added by hand to the dedication.The project the saw was invented for was Westminster Bridge, designed by Charles Labelye (1705-62), an engineer and architect. Labelye was given the project in 1738 and initially designed a timber superstructure augmented with stone. However, during the severe winter of 1739-40 the Thames froze and the existing timber was destroyed. Labelye regrouped and designed a Portland stone bridge instead. Paul Fourdrinier (1698-1758) was a Huguenot engraver who came to work in England, specialising in architectural subjects.Not in the British Library; possibly an earlier state than the copy in the British Museum, which is undated, published by Carington Bowles and etched by John June.

        L' armonico pratico al cimbalo. Regole, osservazioni, ed avvertimenti per ben suonare il basso, e accompagnare sopra il cimbalo, spinetta, ed organo. Di Francesco Gasparini lucchese, fu maestro di coro del Pio Ospedale della Pietà in Venezia, ed accademico filarmonico. Quarta impressione.

      Antonio Bortoli, 1745. In 4°, pp. (8), 86, (2). Marca tipografica incisa sul frontespizio (donna con ramo d'ulivo e tre fanciulli nell'atto di leggere un libro). Cartonatura ocra dell'epoca ocra, con qualche piccolo rattoppo. Copia molto buona. Francesco Gasparini è considerato uno dei migliori compositori del suo tempo. La sua notorietà resta legata al trattato L'armonico pratico al cimbalo., pubblicato per la prima volta a Venezia nel 1708. Si tratta del primo importante trattato riguardante il basso continuo; in esso l'autore in parte riprende i metodi della prassi seicentesca e in parte illustra le novità della tecnica, dello stile e del gusto del suo tempo, come il «suonar pieno», raddoppiando le consonanze, o l'uso di acciaccature e mordenti, vale a dire l'uso di introdurre note estranee all'armonia al fine di creare un «mirabile effetto» sonoro. Gasparini fu, molto probabilmente, un allievo di Bernardo Pasquini e di Arcangelo Corelli a Roma. Intraprese anche una carriera d'insegnante, annoverando fra i suoi allievi Domenico Scarlatti e Benedetto Marcello.

        LES AMOURS PASTORALES DE DAPHNIS ET CHLOÉ

      S.l.n.d 1745 - 1 volume in-12 (15,5 x 10 cm) de (10)-159-XX pages. 8 figures hors-texte gravées sur cuivre par J.-B. Scotin (4 sont signées), 1 fleuron de titre à l'eau-forte, 4 bandeaux à l'eau-forte (amours jouant dans différentes situations), 1 frontispice gravé (non signé). Reliure de l'époque plein maroquin vieux rouge, plats décorés "à la dentelle" avec roulettes dorées fleurdelisées, guirlandes et glands, filet doré sur les coupes, dos orné aux petits fers dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin lavallière, roulette dorée en encadrement intérieur des plats, tranches dorées, doublures et gardes de papier peigne. Belle et fine reliure de l'époque très bien conservée. Intérieur frais avec quelques taches sans gravité, petit manque de papier à l'angle d'un feuillet sans atteinte au texte. La gravure hors-texte p. 53 provient d'un autre exemplaire de même édition et de même tirage. NOUVELLE ÉDITION. Il s'agit d'une réimpression de l'édition de 1731 (Paris, Coustelier) avec les mêmes gravures par Scotin. Cette édition est joliment imprimée sur beau papier vergé en petits caractères avec de belles marges. A la fin on trouve XX pages de Notes par Lancelot. Curieusement notre exemplaire n'a pas les 4 culs-de-lampe qui devraient s'y trouver (autre tirage ?). Longus (appelé parfois également Longos) est un auteur grec qui a probablement vécu au iie ou iiie siècle de notre ère, connu pour son roman Daphnis et Chloé. On ne sait pratiquement rien sur Longus. On présume qu'il est né à Lesbos et qu'il a vécu à l'époque d'Hadrien. On lui attribue le roman intitulé Daphnis et Chloé, parfois présenté sous le titre de « Pastorales de Longus ». Dans le bref prologue, l'auteur met en scène la conception de son roman en se montrant inspiré par un tableau vu à Lesbos, dans le bois sacré des Nymphes ; mais ce prologue fait tout autant partie de la fiction que l'intrigue du roman proprement dit, selon un procédé que l'on retrouve dans d'autres prologues de romans grecs (par exemple Leucippé et Clitophon d'Achille Tatius), et on ne peut pas en déduire avec certitude que Longus était lui-même originaire de Lesbos. Le choix de cette île comme cadre de l'intrigue peut tout aussi bien avoir été guidé par une référence à la poétesse archaïque Sappho, qui en était originaire et fait partie des principales inspirations de l'auteur. Il est manifeste, par les allusions présentes dans le roman, que Longus connaissait bien la poésie grecque archaïque (Sappho) et hellénistique, en particulier la poésie pastorale (Théocrite), le théâtre grec antique et la littérature de l'époque romaine (notamment les Bucoliques de Virgile) : il s'en inspire et en joue dans la composition de son intrigue, les noms et caractères des personnages, les descriptions et les symboles présents dans le roman.

        David Balfour Nacherzählt von Brenda Ralph Lewis - Illustriert von Eric F. Rowe - Deutsche Übersetzung von Christiane Jung

      80 Seiten , 29 cm, Hardcover/Pappeinband das Buch ist ein Schulbuchexemplar mit Stempel und Rückständen in gutem, gebrauchten Zustand, Die Geschichte spielt in dem von Stevenson so geliebten schottischen Hochland während der Zeit nach dem Jakobineraufstand von 1745. Die Schotten mußten bei der letzten großen Schlacht von Culloden eine bittere Niederlage gegen die Engländer hinnehmen. Die gnadenlose Unterdrückung, die darauf folgte, ließ unter den schottischen Sippen Unruhen entstehen. Viele der Aufständischen wurden zum Tode verurteilt und Tausende von ihnen ins Exil getrieben. Vor diesem Hmtergrund wird der Held des Romans, David Balfour, ein stiller, aber selbstbewußter Junge, ohne es zu wissen Erbe des mächtigenHauses der Shaws. Sein hinterhältiger Onkel Ebenezer Balfour will ihn um seine Erbschaft prellen, und David wird entführt. Er findet sich als hilfloser Gefangener auf einem Sklavenschiff nach Carolina wieder. Seine Befreiung hat er Alan Breck Stewart zu verdanken, einem stolzen schottischen Rebellen. In ihm findet David einen verläßlichen Freund. Sie werden in die Ermordung Colin Campbeils, des Roten Fuchses, verwickelt, der von den Schotten wegen seiner Freundschaft mit den Engländem gehaßt wird. Der Mordverdacht fällt auf David und Alan. Es folgt eine Reihe wilder Abenteuer, als sie aus Angst um ihr Leben durch ganz Schottland fliehen, ihre Feinde immer auf den Fersen.

      Rome: Komarek for Monaldini; Salomon for Monaldini; A. de Rubeis, 1745-1755. First editions of three very rare works by the great Croatian scientist Roger Boscovich (1711-87), including <em>De viribus</em>, which contains the first published statement of Boscovich’s universal force law, the basis of his atomic theory of matter, and which prefigures much of his masterpiece <em>Philosophiae Naturalis Theoria Redacta ad Unicam Legem Virium in Natura Existentium </em>(1758). “The ‘Theory of Natural Philosophy’ is now recognized as having exerted a fundamental influence on modern mathematical physics … As the title of his book implies, he considered that a single law was the basis of all natural phenomena and of the properties of matter; that the multiplicity of physical forces was only apparent and due to inadequate mathematical knowledge” (PMM). “In spite of his important contributions to mathematics, astronomy, and optics, today Boscovich is best known for a unified theory of matter based on the hypothesis of point atoms governed by a universal law of force. The basic features of this remarkable theory go back to a treatise of 1745, <em>De viribus vivis</em>” (Kragh, p. 19). “The fundamental features of his theory on indivisible points and the unique law of forces were first published by Boscovich in 1745 in a dissertation entitled <em>De viribus vivis</em> … Further developments of his theory were published in <em>De continuitatis lege</em>, 1754, then in <em>De lege virium in natura existentium, </em>1755” (Markovi , p. 129). “A natural philosopher, mathematician, physicist, astronomer, geodesist, engineer, and poet, Boscovich was, in the words of the physicist John Henry Poynting, “amongst the boldest minds humanity has produced.” Boscovich published about one hundred books and papers, most of them in Latin … The French astronomer Joseph Jérôme Le Français de Lalande said that in each of these works there are ideas worthy of a man of genius” (Whyte in <em>Encyclopedia of Philosophy</em>). In 1958, Werner Heisenberg wrote: “Boscovich’s work contains numerous ideas that have found their deserved place only in the modern physics of the past 50 years.” ABPC/RBH list only one copy of <em>De viribus</em>, one of <em>De lege</em> and three of <em>De lentibus</em>. COPAC lists no copy of <em>De viribus</em>, two of <em>De lege</em> and four of <em>De lentibus</em>; first two works not in BL.</p> <p><em>Provenance</em>: From the library of the mathematician and bibliographer Pietro Riccardi (1828-98) with his book ticket and with shelf-mark pasted on front flyleaf; later in the collection of Dr. Pedro N. Arata (1867-1920), professor of chemistry at Buenos Aires University, with his stamp in blank margins of titles.</p> <p>“[Boscovich’s] heterodoxy in mechanics began to be apparent at least as early as 1745, when he published an important discourse on the subject of living force (<em>vis viva</em>) [i.e., <em>De viribus vivis</em>] … This discourse contained the first statement of Boscovich’s universal force law.</p> <p>“That law was inspired partly by Leibniz’s law of continuity and partly by the famous thirty-first query with which Newton concluded the fourth edition of his <em>Opticks</em>. There Newton raised speculatively the question whether there might not exist both attractive and repulsive forces alternately operative between the particles of matter. From this idea Boscovich proceeded by way of an analysis of collision of bodies to the enunciation of a “universal law of forces” between elements of matter, the force being alternately attractive or repulsive, depending upon the distance by which they are separated. As that distance diminishes toward zero, repulsion predominates and grows infinite so as to render direct contact between particles impossible. A fundamental role is played by the points of equilibrium between the attractive and repulsive forces. Boscovich called such points “boundaries” (<em>limes</em>, the Latin singular). Some of them are points of stable equilibrium for the particles in them and others are points of unstable equilibrium. The behavior of these boundaries and the areas between them enabled Boscovich to interpret cohesion, impenetrability, extension, and many physical and chemical properties of matter, including its emission of light.</p> <p>“It was because of its consequences for the constitution of matter that the law of forces was particularly important. In Boscovich’s natural philosophy the “first elements” of matter became mere points − real, homogeneous, simple, indivisible, without extension, and distinguished from geometric points only by their possession of inertia and their mutual interaction. Extended matter then becomes the dynamic configuration of a finite number of centers of interaction. Many historians have seen in Boscovich’s derivation of matter from forces an anticipation of the concept of the field, an anticipation still more clearly formulated very much later by Faraday in 1844. Matter, then, is not a continuum, but a discontinuum. Mass is the number of points in the volume, and drops out of consideration as an independent entity. In the special case of high-speed particles, Boscovich even envisaged the penetrability of matter” (Markovic in DSB).</p> <p>“The occasion that led Boscovich to the formulation of his dynamic theory of forces was Father Carolus Scherffer’s suggestion of studying the center of oscillation (or center of percussion) of solid bodies. This research led Boscovich to the investigation of the phenomenon of impact or collision of two bodies, a subject dealt with in his <em>De viribus vivis</em>. In sections 16 and 17 of his <em>magnum opus, A theory of natural philosophy, </em>Boscovich writes:</p> <p>“In the year 1745, I was putting together my dissertation “De Viribus vivis,” and had derived everything that they who adhere to the idea of Leibniz, and the greater number of those who measure “living forces” by means of velocity only, derive from these “living forces” … I then began to investigate somewhat more carefully that production of velocity which is thought to arise through impulsive action, in which the whole of the velocity is credited with being produced in an instant of time by those who think, because of that, that the force of percussion is infinitely greater than all forces which merely exercise pressure for single instants. It immediately forced itself upon me that, for percussions of this kind, which really induce a finite velocity in an instant of time, laws of their actions must be obtained differently from the rest.</p> <p>“However, when I considered the matter more thoroughly, it struck me that, if we employ a straightforward method of argument, such a mode of action must be withdrawn from Nature, which in every case adheres to one and the same law of forces, and the same mode of action. I came to the conclusion that really immediate impulsive action of one body on another, and immediate percussion, could not be obtained, without the production of a finite velocity taking place in an indivisible instant of time, and this would have to be accomplished without any sudden change or violation of what is called the Law of Continuity; this law indeed I considered as existing in Nature, and this could be shown to be so by a sufficiently valid argument”” (Jammer, <em>On Concepts of Force</em>, p. 171).</p> <p>Over the decade following the publication of <em>De viribus</em>, Boscovich gradually refined his law of forces. The final form is illustrated in fig. 9 of <em>De lege virium</em>; this is the same is that in fig. 1 of the<em> Theoria</em>. “In the treatise <em>De Lege Virium in Natura Existentium </em>(1755) Bo?kovi synthesized his research into the continuous curve of forces which has been accepted among contemporaries as <em>curva Boscovichiana</em>. On this occasion, too, he calls his interpretation of forces in nature ‘our theory of forces existing in nature’ <em>(nostra theoria virium in natura existentium), </em>as quoted in Boscovich (<em>De lege</em>, n. 1, p. 3)” (Martinovicc, p. 255).</p> <p>The first part of <em>De viribus vivis</em> is devoted to an analysis of the famous <em>vis viva</em> controversy. During the period 1676-89, Leibniz had proposed that the “living force” of a mechanical system is conserved, in opposition to Descartes and Newton who maintained that it was total momentum that is conserved. Madame du Châtelet developed Leibniz’s ideas and showed that “living force” depends on the square of the velocity. “Although the 1743 edition of d’Alembert’s <em>Traité </em>[<em>de Dynamique</em>] had been cited by many authors as resolving the dispute, it provided little more clarification than contrasting dead with living forces and calling the argument a ‘dispute over words’ … Although the 1758 edition of the <em>Traité </em>did point out that momentum could be considered as a force acting during a given time, and <em>vis viva </em>as a force acting over the space traversed, d’Alembert was anticipated in this insight by Roger Boscovich. Pierre Costabel has shown that Boscovich’s <em>De Viribus Vivis </em>(Rome, 1745) suggested a separate graphical representation for each of the two measures of force. The <em>De Viribus Vivis </em>is a fifty-page work of difficult Latin dealing with two separate subjects involving living force. According to Costabel it shows that Boscovich possessed a very thorough understanding of the history of the quarrel before his own intervention, from Leibniz and Bernoulli to Voltaire, de Mairan and du Châtelet …</p> <p>“Although not explicitly stated, Boscovich’s analysis contains the necessary elements for distinguishing force, <em>mv, </em>as a time-dependent function and <em>mv</em><sup>2</sup> as a space-dependent function. It brings together aspects of force analysed previously by Bernoulli, Louville and others. On the question of elastic and inelastic collisions briefly discussed in his paper, Boscovich used the principle of action and reaction and its equivalent, the conservation of quantity of motion taken in an algebraic sense. In verifying the conservation of living force in the sense of Leibniz he said that living force, being formed as it is by the square of the velocity, destroys the sign of that velocity, whereas the quantity of motion conserves all its characteristic elements. Boscovich concludes in paragraph 39 of <em>De Viribus Vivis </em>that the question of living force is a question of language and completely useless. In spite of this analysis of ‘force’, however, Boscovich believed that momentum was the true measure of force, <em>vis viva </em>being valid only as a method of calculation. In his <em>De Viribus Vivis </em>as well as in his later <em>Philosophiae Naturalis Theoria </em>(1758), he argued that there were no living forces in nature” (Iltis, pp. 138-140).</p> <p>The third work in the volume, <em>De lentibus et telescopiis dioptricis, </em>is an important dissertation “on dioptric lenses and telescopes together with information on the properties of light, Newton’s theories, and the mathematical formulae for optical instruments” (<em>British Optical Association Catalogue</em>, p. 26). “In <em>De lentibus</em> Boscovich reveals himself to be a skilled experimenter, establishing guidelines for achieving the optimal refraction of lenses when viewing celestial bodies” (Roberts & Trent, p. 45). Boscovich recognized that the development of better achromatic refractive telescopes required better and more detailed information about the optical properties of glass. References to Newton are found throughout this work.</p> <p><em>De viribus </em>was reprinted in 1747 in <em>Commentariis Academiae Bononiensis</em>, vol. 2, pars 3, secs. 21-49. <em>De lege virium</em> is undated, but Riccardi I, 178 (46) gives the date of 1755 because of the reference to ‘De continuitatis lege’, published in 1754, and which is stated in the preface to have been issued “superiore anno”.</p> <p>Boscovich was born on 18 May 1711 in Dubrovnik, now in Croatia, then an independent city-state surrounded by the Ottoman Empire and the Venetian Republic. There is some ambiguity about how to write Boscovich’s name. In English he is usually referred to as Roger Joseph Boscovich, in Italian as Ruggiero Giuseppe Boscovich, while in his native Croatian he is called Ruder Josip BoÅ¡kovic. His surname is derived from the word BoÅ¡ko, which in Croatian means “little God”. “This Croatian physicist, mathematician, and astronomer is considered the last great polymath. Educated first at the Jesuit College in his native Dubrovnik, he entered the novitiate in Rome in 1725 and later attended the Collegium Romanum, beginning to teach mathematics there in 1740. A corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences at Paris, he travelled there in 1759. The following year he travelled to London, where he met Benjamin Franklin and was elected F.R.S.; he then travelled widely throughput Europe and Eastern Europe. On his return to Italy in 1763, he was elected to the chair of mathematics at Pavia, where he reorganized the department with an emphasis on applied mechanics, and also played a leading role in organizing the observatory at Brera. In 1772 his connection with the observatory was terminated, and, in response, he resigned his professorship; the Jesuit order was suppressed in the following year. At the urging of friends, he removed to Paris, but returned to Italy in 1782 to prepare the manuscripts for his <em>Opera</em>. His scientific interests were divided between astronomy, optics, geodesy, and mathematics, mechanics, and natural philosophy. As well as his religious and teaching duties, Boscovich undertook several practical and diplomatic commissions for both secular and ecclesiastical authorities” (Roberts & Trent, p. 43). Boscovich died of pneumonia on 13 February 1787 in Milan, and was quietly buried at Santa Maria Padone.</p> <p>PMM 203 (for <em>Theoria</em>); Riccardi I, 174 (21); 178 (45) & (46).

        Leben Carl (Carls) des Zwölften Königs von Schweden mit Münzen und Kupfern, 3 Teile (in 3 Bänden).

      Ohne Ort und Verlag, 1745 - 1751 (1755). Monumentale, reich illustrierte Lebens- und Herrschaftsgeschichte des Schwedenkönigs Karl XII (1682 - 1718). Karl gelangte bereits im Alter von 15 Jahren auf den schwedischen Thron und sollte sich in den Jahren seiner Herrschaft als machtbewußter und wehrhafter Monarch erweisen. Einen Angriff der Koalitionäre Dänemark, Sachsen und Rußland, die nach den schwedischen Ostseeprovinzen trachteten, parierte Karl in den Jahren nach 1700 mit seiner an sich unterlegenen Armee zunächst erfolgreich, scheiterte dann aber mit seinem Versuch, durch Besetzung Moskaus den russischen Gegner endgültig zu schlagen. Für fünf Jahre ins osmanische Exil gezwungen, vermochte Karl nach seiner Rückkehr 1714 nicht mehr, Schwedens alte Machtstellung wiederzuerlangen. Bei der - erfolglosen -Belagerung der norwegischen Festung Frederikshald fand sein Leben 1718 ein Ende. Die von Georg Andreas Nordberg zunächst in schwedischer Sprache veröffentlichte Lebensgeschichte Karls wurde von dem Literatur- und Religionswissenschaftler Johann Heinrich Heubel (1694 - 1758) ins Deutsche übertragen und von Heupel dem schwedischen Thronfolger Adolf Friedrich (1710 - 1771) gewidmet. Das monumentale dreibändige Werk enthält unter anderem fünf ganzseitige Porträtkupfer, zahlreiche Münzkupfer, zahlreiche großformatige Vignetten sowie insbesondere 23 großformatige, überwiegend ausfaltbare Karten mit Schlachtenverläufen und Heeresaufstellungen. Bd. I (Erster Theil): Erstes bis neuntes Hauptstück. Mit 12 überwiegend ausfaltbaren Karten (10 Bl., 704 S.) Bd. II (Zweter Theil): Zehntes bis einundzwanzigstes Hauptstück. Mit 12 überwiegend ausfaltbaren Karten (XVI, 768 S.) Bd. III (Dritter Theil): Urkunden zu den Hauptstücken Anhang Register der Namen und Sachen Anmerkungen des Herrn Georg Nordberg zu der Geschichte Carl des Zwölften, 1755 (8 Bl., XX, 882, 68 S.). Bei Band I Außengelenke offen, Deckel gleichwohl fest, Kapitale bei diesem Band etwas abgerieben. Die Bände II und II mit Abrieben am unteren Kapital, Bd. II überdies mit kleiner Abriebstelle an einem Deckel. Von diesen kleineren Läsionen abgesehen befinden sich die sehr schweren Ganzlederbände in sehr gutem Zustand die Seiten 1 bis 28 sowie 628 bis 637 und 692 bis 704 des ersten Bandes jeweils etwas feuchtigkeitsrandig, die Seiten 584/85 wurden in der Paginierung übersprungen (Seiten sind vollständig vorhanden) die Seiten ansonsten sauber und überwiegend fleckenfrei, allenfalls wenige Seiten leicht fleckig. In toto sehr gutes Exemplar dieses monumentalen, reich illustrierten Werkes, das in den Original-Ganzlederfolianten ansonsten kaum noch anzutreffen sein dürfte.
