        Essai sur l'origine des connoissances humaines

      Chez Pierre Mortier, 1746. - Chez Pierre Mortier, à Amsterdam [Paris] 1746, in-8 (9,5x17cm), xxx, 265pp. ; (4) 292pp., 2 tomes reliés en un volume. - Prima edizione. Pieno di pecora bionda vintage. Torna Tooled sollevato. Cerchi in coda. Parte del titolo in marocchino rosso. Una piccola perdita in mente. 3 angoli urtato con la perdita di cuoio. Luce per lavorare sul margine destro della prima foglia diventa un semplice foro per l'intera opera. Abbastanza buona copia. Il primo libro che si distingue il pensiero di Condillac si basa molto sul mentore dell'autore: Locke. Già abate Condillac rifiuta qualsiasi causa spirituale e accusa tutte le filosofie idealiste (Leibniz, Cartesio ...), ma non è ancora il leader sensualismo, che fa affermare che molto più tardi. Il suo stile è già chiara, precisa e logica, andando dritto al punto da induzioni. Condillac getta le prime basi di lavoro e dei principi che sono alla base dei suoi future.Ex-libris di pensiero Maurice Privat. Etiquette Libri Raymond Clavreuil. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure en pleine basane blonde d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Roulettes en queue. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Un petit manque en tête. 3 coins émoussés avec perte de cuir. Léger travail de vers sur la marge droite des premiers feuillets devenant un simple trou de vers sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage. Assez bon exemplaire. Ce premier ouvrage où s'érige la pensée de Condillac s'appuie considérablement sur le maître à penser de l'auteur : Locke. Déjà, l'abbé Condillac rejette toute cause spirituelle et s'en prend à toutes les philosophies idéalistes (Leibniz, descartes...), mais il n'est pas encore le chef de file du Sensualisme, qu'il n'affirmera que bien plus tard. Son style est déjà clair, précis et logique, allant directement à l'essentiel par inductions. Condillac jette dans cette première oeuvre les bases et les principes sur lesquels s'étayeront sa pensée future.Ex-libris Maurice Privat. Etiquette Librairie Raymond Clavreuil.

        Prospetto principale del celebre Palazzo di Caprarola fatto edificare das Cardinale Alessandro Farnese...

      1746. Splendida veduta prospettica del palazzo Farnese di Caprarola, pubblicata nell'opera Illustri fatti farnesiani coloriti nel Real Palazzo di Caprarola dai fratelli Taddeo Federico e Ottaviano Zuccari...edita nel 1748, di George Kaspar de Prenner, edita nel 1748. L'opera illustra, attraverso le incisoni di de Prenner, le decorazioni eseguite da Taddeo e Ottaviano Zuccari nel palazzo.Le cinque tavole finali, non numerate, sono state disegnate e incise da Giuseppe Vasi e consistono in vedute e piante del palazzo di Caprarola. Ecco la descrizione che del Palazzo fornisce lo stesso Vasi nel suo "Indice istorico del gran prospetto di Roma... da Giuseppe Vasi: ovvero itinerario istruttivo per ritrovare con facilità tutte le antiche e moderne magnificenze di Roma, con una breve digressione - sopra alcune Città e Castelli Suburbani" stampata a Roma nel 1765 presso Marco Pagliarini Sarebbe un errore se, avendo dimostrato le magnificenze antiche e moderne di Roma e suoi contorni, non guidassi ora il mio Lettore a vedere il celebre palazzo fatto erigere dal Card. Alessandro Farnese nipote di Paolo III. (...) Giacomo Barozio da Vignola ne fece il disegno in figura pentagona, con baluardi e fosse d'intorno a modo di fortezza, facendo nobilissimo invito una doppia cordonata alla magnifica piazza, e delizioso ingresso al superbo palazzo una scala a due branchi con ponte levatore; ed altra nobilissima e maravigliosa scala fatta a chiocciola con colonne doriche e balaustri, lavorata sì perfettamente, che sembra tutta di getto; con un cortile sferico cinto di portici e di logge. Tanto le camere e sale del primo piano nobile, quanto quelle del secondo, i portici, le logge e le scale, sono tutte a volta, ornate di vaghissimi stucchi e capricciose pitture a grottesco fatte dal famoso Antonio Tempesta. Nelli sfondi delle camere e delle sale sono dipinte varie favole proposte da Annibal Caro a Taddeo e Federigo Zuccheri, i quali dipinsero ancora alcuni fatti celebri de' Farnesi che il Card. Trajano Acquaviva fece incidere in rame, ed insieme le piante e alzate dell'edificio, per compiacere gli eruditi dilettanti. Alla magnificenza del palazzo corrisponde l'amenità di due giardini segreti, ai quali si passa per due ponti levatori; ed ancora la delizia di una villa con amenissimi viali, boschetti e diversità di fontane, di scale e fiorire ornate di sculture capricciosissime; e con un casino di ricreazione posto fra' due giardini si rende oltre modo riguardevole questa delizia, ora del mio Sovrano il Re delle due Sicilie Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, datata e firmata in lastra in basso a destra. In ottimo stato di conservazione. A beautiful view of Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, one of the best examples of a Renaissance residence, built for the Roman Farnese family . The plate is part of Illustri fatti farnesiani coloriti nel Real Palazzo di Caprarola dai fratelli Taddeo Federico e Ottaviano Zuccari...by George Kaspar de Prenner, published in 1748. The unnumbered final five folded plates, drawn and engraved by Giuseppe Vasi, are plans and views of the Real palazzo di Caprarola. In 1530 Alessandro Farnese, who later became Pope Paul III, asked Antonio Sangallo the Younger to build a fortress in Caprarola. Sangallo designed an impressive pentagonal building, but works were suspended in 1534 when Alessandro Farnese was elected pope. The grandson of Pope Paul III, Cardinal Alessandro Farnese Jr came into possession of the property in Caprarola and in 1555 ordered the architect Jacopo Birozzi da Vignola, known as Vignola, to continue work on the building, creating a luxurious palace instead of the original fortress. Vignola carried out his task marvellously, succeeding in designing and building a prestigious palace on the existing large - scale foundations of a military structure, thus creating a harmonious construction which is looked on as his masterpiece. He succeeded in combining perfectly the beauty of the surrounding landscape with his architectural inventiveness so as to obtain a work of unmatched originality and grandeur. Etching, in very good condition. Roma Rome 730 500

        A library on Arabian horse breeding, including Stud Books and General Reference. From the Le Vivier and Marcia Parkinson Collections, with Additions from the Library of Duke Maximilian in Bavaria.

      - The largest collection of its kind in private hands. 250 works in more than 1,000 volumes. Mostly original or first editions. Published in Austin, Cairo, Chicago, Hildesheim, London, Marburg, Moscow, New York, Philadelphia, Riga, Tehran, Warsaw and other places in the years 1746 to 2007. Amassed over the last fifty years and covering four centuries of relevant material, the present collection spans all aspects of the history and development of the breeding of Arabian horses. It comprises within itself many books from the Le Vivier collection: fine press books of racing and thoroughbred literature produced by Eugene Connett's famous Derrydale press, as well as numerous important items from the library of Duke Maximilian in Bavaria (1808-88), himself a great enthusiast of Arabic horses. Including items of exceptional rarity, such as the rare, beautifully illustrated first German edition of Friedrich von Eisenberg’s famous riding school (1747), which lauds Arabian horses as "the finest produced by the Orient". Also, we here find the early Arabian Horse Registry of America Stud Books, and many items also bear presentation inscriptions from the authors (Carl Raswan, Gladys Brown Edwards, etc.). The common practice in such a specialized field, most of the publications here were issued for a very limited circulation in runs of 1,000 or fewer individually-numbered copies. - As a reference library for breeding the collection is unparalleled: almost any Arabian horse's forefathers will be found amongst the exhaustive stud books and breeding serials from the 18th to the 20th century, from Australia, Poland, Spain, Russia, the USA, etc., often with accompanying photographs. Perhaps the most famous reference work is the Raswan Index, of which only 380 copies were printed (and many destroyed by a flood). Raswan became an expert on the Arabian breed through his lengthy trips to the desert, where he lived with the Bedouins and learned their language and customs. Several scarce early 20th century works also testify to the Western fascination with the Bedouin and desert roots of the Arabian horse: Homer Davenport's 'My Quest of the Arabian Horse' (1909) and Raswan's 'The Black Tents of Arabia: My Life Amongst the Bedouins' (1935). - Alongside modern surveys of the key centres of horse-breeding in the Arab world, the early Western classics are also found here in their scarce first editions. French and German authors are also well-represented, including the text and first French translation of the 'Hilyat al-fursân wa-shi'âr ash-shuj'ân', an abridgement of Ibn Hudhail's horse treatise, prepared around 1400. Finally, the owner's collection of notable catalogues and magazines paints a fascinating composite picture of the evolution, and heyday, of Arabian horse-breeding in the Arab world, Poland, America, and the United Kingdom. - Also contained in this magnificent collection are the classic reference works on Arabian and Anglo-Arabian racehorses and their breeding. These standard works and encompassing sets of specialised thoroughbred literature include not only the indispensable guides to horse pedigrees, the Racing Calendar, General Stud Book, Spanish, American and Australian Stud Books, Bloodstock Breeders' Review, and Prior's Register of Thoroughbred Stallions, in near-complete runs stretching back as far as the 18th century, but also British and international horseracing history, and several volumes of exquisite coloured plates. - The size and comprehensiveness of the present collection cannot be overstated; it is safe to say that it represents the largest private collection of its kind which has come up for sale in recent decades. Many of the items found here can be located in just a handful of public institutions worldwide. Such items come into the market so rarely (and have recently, like the Raswan Index and the AHRA Stud Books, commanded prices of five figures) that it would be impossible to build a comparable collection item-by-item; the [Attributes: First Edition]

        L'Afrique, divisée selon l'etendue de ses principales parties.

      Paris, G. Danet, 1730/1746. - 159 x 108 cm (conjoined sheets), in hand colour. Scale ca. 1:12,000,000. A magnificent coloured wall map, enclosed within historiated borders showing topographical vignettes, printed on four conjoined sheets with additional running title above and engraved text providing geographical and political information to the sides, all on additional sheets. While it is a map of Africa, it also shows the Arabian Peninsula in its entirety. - The cartographer Nicolas de Fer (1646-1720), son of a Parisian engraver specialising in the colouring and selling of maps, maintained a good relationship with the Academy of Sciences and was Geographer Royal to the Dauphin and the King of Spain. Nevertheless, his productions were not aimed at a university-educated audience, and his work is distinguished by easy accessibility and popularisation of geographical information rather than by scholarly precision. The present rendering of Arabia, apparently based in part on the work of Delisle, shows this posthumous publication (by de Fer's son-in-law Danet) to be a later release of a much early conception of the Middle East, outdated even in the 1740s. In particular, it omits the Sinai Peninsula included in several of de Fer's earlier efforts. "Like Delisle, De Fer had considerable prestige and influence in France and all over Europe" (Historical Atlas of the Gulf, p. 278). Among the toponyms along the coast of the Arabian Gulf are Abadan, Sur, Ahsa, Janama, Bahr, El Catif, Bischa, Borou, Godo, Vodana, Calba, Dadana, and Pinder. - Professionally repaired; some wrinkling, but preserving its impressive wall appearance.

        [HWV 319-330]. Twelve Grand Concertos For Violins, &c. in Seven Parts... Opera Sexta. 3d Edition. [Parts]

      [London]: I. Walsh, 1746. A scarce complete set. Smith & Humphries pp. 222-223, no. 4. HWV p. 74. BUC p. 441. RISM H1256 (few complete copies and only one copy in the U.S.). "The 12 concerti grossi or ?Grand Concertos'; written in a burst of creative energy in September and October 1739 were consciously conceived as an integral set, clearly in emulation (though not imitation) of Corelli';s famous set with the same opus number and the same scoring for a concertino of two violins and cello with four-part ripieno strings and continuo. (Handel later added oboe parts to nos.1, 2, 5 and 6, mostly doubling the ripieno violins.) Each concerto has an individual form. Many movements blend inextricably the majesty of the French manner with italianate fluency, and a prodigious stream of invention coupled with intensity of feeling is maintained thoughout the set. The fact that earlier material is sometimes drawn upon (three of the concertos are based on the overture to the Ode for St Cecilia';s Day and the two ?Second Set'; organ concertos) does not diminish the achievement, since the adapations are fascinating and often radical in themselves, and the recognition that several thematic elements are derived from Scarlatti';s Essercizi simply leads to admiration of the way Handel transforms them and uses them to build larger structures. The Polonaise in no.3 and the grave Musette of no.6 are haunting amplifications of standard dance forms. The set is an apotheosis of the Baroque concerto, to be set alongside the Brandenburg Concertos of Bach, as well as an epitome of Handel';s art, drawing on many sources and influences and uniting them in a style uniquely his own." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online. A very attractive example of one of Handel's most masterful works, published during the composer's lifetime.. Folio. Seven volumes. Newly bound in marbled wrappers with printed title label with part name to uppers. iolino Primo Concertino: 1f. (title), [i] (blank), 2-65, [i] (blank) pp. Violino Primo Ripieno: 1f.

        Fables for the Female Sex. The Second Edition.

      Printed for R. Francklin 1746 - with engraved vignette on title, frontispiece and 16 plates (1 for each Fable) after Francis Hayman, all in beautiful contemporary hand-colouring, lacking final blank (as usual), some leaves loosening, some minor soiling, ink splashes &c, pp. [viii], 173, 8vo, contemporary calf, gilt ruled compartments on spine, red lettering piece, a little worn, chip out of head cap, good, contemporary signature at head of front free endpaper of Alethea Brereton (see below), enigmatic modern bookplate below this with the name Beresford Jones (Beresford lettered as a clockwise circle, Jones as an ascending diagonal). Second (London) Edition, first 1744 with an edition in Dublin that year also. A popular series, in the manner of Gay, which went through more than a dozen editions before the century was out. The hand-colouring in this copy is delightful and lively, well executed if not professional. It is the work it seems of Alethea Brereton, who would have been 21 at the time, this 3 years before the birth of her daughter of the same name, who wrote under the pseudonym of Eugenia de Acton. The name is uncommon enough for this suggestion to be plausible at least. (ESTC T78516; Foxon M427)

Er erwarb sich besondere Verdienste durch seine Sinnesphysiologischen Arbeiten. - Zu I: Zweite Ausgabe der erstmals 1746 veröffentlichten Schrift. - "But in 1746 he supplements his Dünste theory in his 'Abhandlungen.', where he discusses the attractive force of Newton, acclaiming that it may be described better by the whirl of the bodies caused through pushes from the effluvia and the materiae. The movement producing the whirl are identical in electricity and in the air, and the movements between the planets as well as ebb and tide depend on those. In this way the moon phases will influence human bodies as well as animals" (Snorrason S. 72). - Zu II: Erste Ausgabe. - "Kratzenstein continued working on his ideas concerning the soul in divided parts of animals by now performing experiments with worms. In 'Abhandlungen.' he, like von Haller, dissociates himself from the 'force végétative' of Buffon and Needham on account of his experiments with the development and existence of intestinal worms in human beings" (Snorrason S. 69). - Zu III: Die Briefe beschäftigen sich mit dem "Nutzen der Elektricität in der Arzneywissenschaft" und einem "Beweis, daß die Seele ihren Cörper baue". - Frontispiz zum ersten Teil leicht angeschnitten.

      - Norimberga, 1746. Incisione in rame, colore d’epoca, cm 52,2 x 59,6 ca. (alla lastra). Carta terrestre, raffigurante il mondo diviso nei due emisferi che occupano il centro del programma, arricchiti da quattro più piccole proiezioni polari, ossia quattro più piccoli globi che mostrano le varie viste della terra dal polo nord e dal polo sud, e da due piccoli schemi celesti che descrivono l’asse della terra rispetto al sole. La California non è più descritta come isola, sia l’Australia che la nuova Zelanda sono incomplete e Yedo è indicato come un componente dell’Asia del Nord. Questa carta, doppiamente titolata, è ornata da due cartigli altamente decorativi, posti in alto, ciascuno dei quali contiene un titolo, in quello a sn. quello in latino, in quello a ds. quello in francese. Inoltre include una chiave coloristica che assegna un colore a ciascuna delle principali religioni occidentali e l’inclusione di questo colouring specifico conferisce alla carta, rispetto a quelle generalmente più semplici prodotte dagli Homann, un carattere di ulteriore fascino, dal momento che identifica la religione prominente dell’area interessata (Cfr. Moreland e Bannister). Esemplare, con minime gualciture nella parte inferiore della brachetta, peraltro in bella coloritura, discreto stato di conservazione.

      Boslandschap met herder, een kudde schapen en reizigers, in de achtergrond een kasteel. Tekening met pen en aquarel van de hand van Egbert van Drielst (Groningen 1746 ? Amsterdam 1818).Van Drielst was behangselschilder te Haarlem, waar hij les kreeg van Hendrick de Meyer (zie elders in deze catalogus) en maakte later samen met Jacob Cats (zie ook elders in deze catalogus) in diens behangselfabriek te Amsterdam verschillende fraaie kunstwerken. Zijn bekendheid groeide en werd hij gewaardeerd als man van grote vakbekwaamheid. Als landschapsschilder en ?tekenaar koos hij behalve de omstreken van Haarlem de schilderachtige gehuchten, vlakten en velden van Drenthe. Van Drielst wordt 'de Drentse Hobbema" genoemd.Volgens J. Immerzeel (1842) is Van Drielst "een der beste landschapschilders der lateren tijd'. "Zijn compositie is meestal in schilderachtige streken naar het leven genomen, helder en doorgaans goed en natuurlijk van toon voorgesteld en vrij en fiks gepenseeld.'Prijs: € 975,- (incl. lijst) .

        Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigung ...

      Nürnberg, Raspischen Buchhandlung/ J.J. Fleischmann/ C.F.C. Kleemann, 1746-1761. 8 volumes (4 text- & 4 atlas volumes). 4to (208 x 173mm). With 1 engraved portrait of Roesel, 3 hand-coloured engraved frontispieces and 357 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates (printed on 285 leaves). Contemporary half calf (not uniform). All published by Roesel von Rosenhof without the supplement by Kleeman and the much later published second supplement by Schwarz. The work was published by Roesel and his son-in-law Kleemann, both lived in Bavaria, in Nürnberg, working as artists, and both were ardent students of local natural history./"Roesel, who studied at first with his father and then with his uncle Wilhelm, an animal painter in Merseburg, later became a pupil of the famous Preisler in Nuremberg. After living in Copenhagen from 1726 to 1728 he returned to Nuremberg for good, and there, besides painting portraits and drawings, he applied himself in particular to the study of nature. He collected insects, their eggs and larvae, studied the process of hatching, pupation, and emergence, and painted all this in a most meticulous way, as Kleemann tells us. His manuscripts, with 406 illustrations, are now in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich. Roesel also made the engravings of his drawings and, until his death in 1757, his 'loving and diligent spouse' contributed fine colouring to the prints" (Nissen. Bestiaries)./The 4 text volumes are bound in contemporary black half calf, some covers have become loose and the spines are rubbed, the atlas volumes are nicely bound in contemporay half calf, spines with gilt ornaments.//Junk, Rara p. 159 (our copy has the same collation of plates); Nissen ZBI, 3466.
