Interessante Quelle zur Migration aus Savoyen ("Schweden") nach Süddeutschland. " Es ist vielleicht kein Zufall, dass die einzigen Todesurteile gegen welsche Falschmünzer in Augsburg, die bislang ermittelt werden konnten, Personen erleiden mussten, die in keinem erkennbaren Zusammenhang mit der Stadtbevölkerung standen. Es traf den Johann Sassovie und seine Frau, die nach gründlichem und peinlichem Verhör 1747 in Augsburg hingerichtet wurden".

It is mamby not a accident that the only death setences against "welsche" forgers at Augsburg, which could detected until yet; people which had to suffer because they were not in generall connection with the town population. It strokes the Johann Sassovie and his wife, which were executed after a effcient and mortifying examination 1747 at Augsburg." (M. Zuern, Savoyer infront of urban courts) Not by Huelke-Etzler.

        L'immaterialite de l'ame demontree contre M. Locke. Par les memes Principes, par lesquels ce Philosophe demontre l'Existence & l'Immaterialite de Dieu, avec des nouvelles preuves de l'immaterialite de Dieu et de l'ame (...).

      Turin, De l'Imprimerie Royale, 1747.. In-4, cartonnage souple creme de l'epoque corde, (22), 283, (1) p. Edition originale de ce "grand ouvrage dans lequel Gerdil oppose Descartes a Locke, en faveur de l'immaterialite de l'ame" (F. Bouillier, 'Histoire de la philosophie Cartesienne', II, p. 550 sq.). "Ce Cartesien se rapproche de Leibniz et surtout accepte et developpe les doctrines de Malebranche. En plein XVIIIe siecle, il oppose encore la physique de Descartes a celle de Newton et la theorie de l'etendue intelligible au sensualisme de Locke. Il combat au nom de ces principes, l'empirisme dans la morale, dans la jurisprudence, dans l'esthetique" (A. Franck, 'Dict. de philosophie', p.616). Provincial des Barnabites de Savoie et du Piemont, precepteur du fils du roi Charles-Emmanuel III et professeur de philosophie a Turin, doue d'une prodigieuse erudition, Gerdil fut l'adversaire infatigable des Philosophes. Rousseau le designa, selon le P. Fontana, comme l'un de ses rares adversaires qui merita sa consideration. Vignette ex-libris armoriee collee au verso du titre " Riscasoli Firidolfi ".

        Reglement vor Die Königl. Preußische Infanterie worinnen enthalten Die Evolutions das Manual und die Chargirung und Wie der Dienst im Felde und in der Garnison geschehen soll, auch Wornach die sämtliche Officiers sich sonst zu verhalten haben desgleichen Wieviel an Tractament bezahlet und davon abgezogen wird, auch wie die Mundirung gemachet werden soll, Ordnung halber In 12 Theile, ein iedes Theil in gewiße Tituls ein ieder Titul in gewisse Articles abgefaßet. Deutsche Handschrift in brauner Tinte auf Papier, Wasserzeichen 'Inpatria' und Nelken in den Seitenecken, sehr schöne, gleichmäßige Reinschrift eines professionellen Schreibers, undatiert (wohl 1747).

      - 460 nicht paginierte Seiten, Blattgröße 30,5 x 20,3 cm, Schriftspiegel ca. 26 x 16,5 cm. Zeitgenössischer hellbrauner Halbleder-Band auf vier flachen Bünden, mit handschriftlichem Papierrückenschild 'Königl. Preussi. Reglement der Infanterie' und dreiseitigem rotgesprenkeltem Schnitt (vorderes Gelenk mit Fehlstelle, Kanten etwas berieben), Folio. Zum Inhalt: Das Reglement beginnt mit der Struktur und dem Aufbau der Infanterie, dem schließen sich die Exerziervorschriften an. Aufgeführt sind Bewegungsabläufe, Tempi und Befehle. Aufbauend auf diesem Grundwissen werden die Chargirung mit einem Bataillon und Regiment, Marschordnungen sowie Formationen außerhalb des Exerzierens behandelt. Der sechste Teil behandelt das Kantonssystem und die Kompagniewirtschaft, der folgende den Umgang mit dem Esponton - einer Art Hellebarde, der von Unteroffizieren benutzt wurde, um die Reihen der Gemeinen zu ordnen. Erst der achte und neunte Teil enthält die Dienstvorschriften im Felde und in den Garnisonen, der zehnte die Regelungen für den Ausmarsch von Regimentern oder Bataillonen aus den Quartieren, der elfte das Verhalten der Offiziere und der letzte Teil schließlich die Zahlungen für die einzelnen Einheiten. Datierung und Besonderheiten: Die vorliegende Handschrift entspricht inhaltlich weitgehend der gedruckten Ausgabe von 1743. Allerdings handelt es sich, das legen die zahlreichen Abweichungen nahe, nicht um eine wörtliche Abschrift, sondern möglicherweise um die Abschrift einer weiteren handschriftlichen Fassung. Der Vergleich mit der faksimilierten Ausgabe von 1743 (herausgegeben von Bleckwenn 1976) ergab nicht nur Unterschiede in der Orthographie der Handschrift (HS) und der Druckausgabe (DA): worin (DA, Titel) - worinnen (HS, Titel), Desgleichen (DA, Titel) - des gleichen (HS), wann (DA) - wan (HS), allezeit (DA) - alle Zeit (HS), Vergadderung (DA, Titel VIII. Teil) - Vergatterung (HS), Guarnison (DA) - Garnison (HS), Junii (DA) - Juny (HS), sondern auch sprachliche Abweichungen marchiret (DA, 140) - avanciret (HS), andern (DA, 192) - 2ten (HS). Darüberhinaus sind teilweise ganze Sätze ausgelassen, Zahlen in Summen nicht vollständig aufgeführt (zum Vergleich DA, 609). Auch sind die Anhänge in unterschiedlicher Reihenfolge aufgeführt. Dieser Anhang ist datiert auf "Berlin, den 1. Juny 1747". Das die gedruckte Ausgabe jedoch den "1. Junii 1743" ausweist, ist an dieser Stelle von einem Schreibfehler auszugehen. Da bei Verschreibungen in der Regel eher ein vergangenes oder aber das aktuelle Jahr zu erwarten ist und nicht ein zukünftiges, kann man mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit davon ausgehen, dass die vorliegende Handschrift 1747 angefertigt wurde, zumal ein 1748 publizierter 26seitiger, ergänzender Anhang fehlt. Die auf den letzten Seiten wiedergegebenen Ordre (Zur Erhaltung der Subordination bey der Armee und zur Frage wie viel Equipage die Offiziere mit zu Felde nehmen sollten) gibt die Handschrift fälschlich das Datum 12ten Juny 1743 (die gedruckte Fassung nennt den 12ten Junii 1744). Kontextualisierung des Reglements von 1743: Die preußische Armee hatte auf Initiative Friedrich Wilhelms I. und Leopold I., Fürst von Anhalt-Dessau, 1726 ein komplettes Dienst-Reglement erhalten. Kurz nach Regierungsantritt Friedrichs II. und dem von ihm begonnen 1. Schlesischen Krieg offenbarten sich Defizite in Struktur und Mentalität des Militärs, die der König abzuschaffen gedachte. Im Jahre 1743 erließ er insgesamt fünf Reglements für: Feld-Infanterie, Kürassiere, Dragoner, Husaren und Garnisons-Infanterie. In ihnen waren sowohl Exerzierreglements als auch Rechte, Pflichten und Abläufe des normalen Dienstbetriebes geregelt. Besonders deutlich wurde jedoch die Neuauffasung des Soldatentums in der Regelung der strikten hierarchischen Beziehung zu König und Staat in den Anhängen bezüglich der Subordination. Besonders Friedrich II. suchte sein Offizierkorps weitestgehend von dem sich entwickelnden Bürgertum fernzuhalten. Die Siege im 2. Schlesischen Krieg, [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE HISTORY OF THE FIRST DISCOVERY AND SETTLEMENT OF VIRGINIA

      Printed by William Parks, Williamsburg 1747 - The Menzies-Lefferts Copy of the First Colonial History Printed in Virginia. 210 x 133 mm (8 1/4 x 5 1/4"). viii, 304, 295-304, 305-331 [i.e., 341], [1]; v, [i], 34 pp. FIRST EDITION (Sabin variant "B"/Church Edition "2," Church seeing no priority in the two states of the first edition, but Sabin speculating that corrections to "B" suggest a later printing). FINE DECORATIVE GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO BY FRANCIS BEDFORD (stamp-signed on front turn-in), cover framed by gilt French fillets with oblique floral sprays at corners, raised bands, spine attractively gilt in compartments with large fleuron centerpiece enclosed by double fillets and cornerpieces of scrolling floral vines, turn-ins densely gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials. Front pastedown with leather bookplate of Marshall Clifford Lefferts (see below) and with bookplate of Mrs. L. Bartlett; verso of front free endpaper with Lefferts' small purple cipher stamp; front flyleaf with Lefferts' pencilled signature dated 26 January 1884 and a brief bibliographical note, saying the volume came from the Menzies sale (see below). Brinley 3796; Church 963; Evans 6071; Howes S-1014; Sabin 91860. Spine uniformly sunned to olive, the vaguest hint of isolated browning or foxing, other trivial imperfections, but AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, the text very clean, smooth, and fresh, and in a handsome binding that is lustrous and scarcely worn. With outstanding provenance, this is a fine copy in a lovely binding of the first edition of one of the earliest accounts of Virginia, one of the first American histories to be written and printed in the British colonies, and the first such book published in Virginia. It also was issued by the first press in that colony. The work covers the earliest days of the original permanent English colony in North America, from its establishment in 1607 through the dissolution of the Virginia Company of London in 1624. According to DNB, it has been "long regarded by later historians as a pioneering example of scholarship based on extensive research in original sources." Through his relatives, the prominent Randolph family, Stith (1707-55) had access to important early research material, including the library of William Byrd of Westover, records of the Virginia Company, and Virginia court proceedings (many of these documents being since destroyed). Born in Viriginia and educated at Oxford, Stith served as president of the College of William and Mary and was an early critic of taxation without representation. William Parks (ca. 1698-1750) established the "Maryland Gazette," the first American newspaper south of Pennsylvania, before moving to Williamsburg in 1733 to begin printing in Virginia. According to ANB, he was considered "the most important colonial printer after Benjamin Franklin," and this is one of his most enduring works, as well as one of the earliest Virginia imprints available. The binding here is typical of the elegant work of Francis Bedford, discussed more fully in item #xxxx. Our copy has a prestigious provenance: the earliest owner we know of, self-made businessman William Menzies (1810-96), assembled a library of Americana that the eminent bibliographer Joseph Sabin described as a "grand and probably unrivalled collection . . . Replete with the best editions of the best authors, in the very best condition, selected and purchased . . . Without regard to cost." Sabin prepared the catalogue for the Menzies sale in 1875 ("the bibliographical event of the season," according to "American Bibliopolist"), in which the present item appears as lot #1916, described in hyperbolic terms. Sabin told Frederick Goff that the condition of Menzies' books was unsurpassed by any other collection he had handled in his long and distinguished career. Our subsequent owner, Marshall C. Lefferts (1848-1928) travelled in a similarly lofty bibliophilic orbit as one of the great American book collectors of English and American l [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Essais de théodicé sur la bonté de Dieu, la Liberté de l'homme et l'origine du mal. Nouvelle édition, augmentée de l'Histoire de la vie & des ouvrages de l'auteur par M. le Chevalier de Jaucourt.

      François Changuion 1747 - Amsterdam, chez Francois Changuion, 1747. 2 vol. petits in 8 de [VI]-332-l66pp., [II]-410-[l4]pp., reliure en plein veau havane de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs ornés de caissons dorés, nerfs et caissons très légèrement frottés, pièces de titre de maroquin marron encadrées d'un double filet doré, roulettes dorées sur les coupes, titre en noir et en rouge sur la page de titre ornée d'une belle petite vignette, une planche dépliante en fin de deuxième tome, quelques taches sur les bords des plats mais sans gravité, armoiries probablement d'origine allemande mais non identifiée sur le plat supérieur de chaque volume. Les 332 pages du volume I. comprennent la vie de Leibniz écrite par Jaucourt, la bibliographie de ses écrits et l'introduction de l'auteur à cet ouvrage, très bel exemplaire. L'auteur, natif de Leipzig (1646-1716), publia son premier ouvrage dès l'âge de 20 ans, "De arte combinatoria", et se lia avec les savants et penseurs de son époque, tels que Pascal, Huygens, Spinoza. Il découvrit en même temps qu'Isaac Newton les principales règles du calcul infinitésimal et est considéré comme l'inventeur de ce qui deviendra par la suite la calculatrice. Dans ses différentes oeuvres telles que ''Nouveaux essais sur l'entendement humain" (1704), ''Essais de théodicée sur la bonté de Dieu." (1710), ''Monadologie" (1714), il développe une argumentation mathématique et philosophique et montre que Dieu, être infini, est le créateur du monde. Formé d'un nombre infini de monades entre lesquelles Dieu a préétabli une harmonie, le monde s'offrant à l'homme à travers une infinité de points de vue possibles, que Leibniz tente d'articuler à l’aide d'une métamathématique ou les vérités s'énoncent à partir de règles logiques définies. Ainsi à l'instar de Giordano Bruno, Baruch Spinoza ou Friedrich Wilhelm Schelling, Leibniz développe son propre concept philosophique panthéiste. C'est dans cet ouvrage, que l’auteur invente le terme de théodicée pour designer la justification de la bonté de Dieu contre les arguments tirés de l'existence du mal dans notre monde, et par la suite pour réfuter des doctrines ouvertement athées ou dualistes qui s'appuient sur ces arguments. Ce terme sera notamment repris par Kant. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      "printed for J. & P. Knapton, T. Longman and T. Shewell [et al.]" London: "printed for J. & P. Knapton, T. Longman and T. Shewell [et al.]". 1747. "First edition, second issue (without Chesterfield's name on A2 recto), 4to, pp. [2], 34; lacking the final blank, margins unevenly trimmed, else a very good copy in recent maroon cloth, red morocco label, matching slipcase. & & In a manuscript, dated 20 April, 1746, the Plan began as ""A Short Scheme for compiling a new Dictionary of the English Language,"" now in the Hyde collection. Johnson then revised and rewrote his ""Short Scheme"" and had the second version copied out by a professional scribe... The faircopy was apparently read by Lord Chesterfield to whom the published version was addressed ... In August 1747 the Plan was published. There are two versions of the original quarto pamphlet, the first bearing the drop-head title on p. 1 ""To the Right Honorable Philip Dormer, Earl of Chesterfield ... the second version having no drop-head title on p. 1, and differing in a few minor readings ... When the Dictionary was about to appear in February 1755, the Plan was reprinted from the non-Chesterfield version, as an octavo pamphlet, still bearing the date of 1747"" (Alston).

Durant son voyage effectué en Europe entre 1732 et 1736, il publia à Paris "Galliae antiquates" (1733), contenant le fruits de ses découvertes archéologiques en Provence. Il s'intéressa aussi à l'économie en publiant ''Dell'impiego del denaro'' (1746), au théâtre, que ce soit comme critique avec son livre "Dei teatri antichi e moderni" (1753) que comme auteur avec "Merope'', représentée pour la première fois en 1713 à Modène, devenant la tragédie italienne la plus importante avant que ne soient publiées les oeuvres de Vittorio Alfieri.

With choreography by Laval, "Compositeur des Balets du Roi."& & "By March 1766 Les fêtes de l’Hymen had been performed 106 times at the Opéra or at court... The plots of the three colourful entrées are simple but dramatically convincing; moreover, the music is consistently inventive and sometimes outstanding... In this work Cahusac prided himself on giving a new importance to the supernatural and to the use of spectacular stage machines; those for the overflowing Nile were long admired. The work contains no fewer than seven ballets figurés, a symptom of the librettist’s growing desire to integrate dance and action."

Better known for his important contributions to philosophy and mathematics, Leibniz was also an attorney, diplomat, state official and judge of the Mainz court of appeals. First published in 1693, the second volume in 1700, the Codex Juris Diplomaticus is a collection of annotated treaties and other source materials relating to the diplomatic history of the Guelphs, the factions in central and northern Italy who supported the Pope against the Holy Roman Emperor and his supporters, the Ghibellines, during the 12th and 13th centuries. The main states controlled by the Guelphs were Bologna, Brescia, Crema, Genoa, Mantua, Orvieta and Perugia. The conflict between the Guelph and Ghibbelline states, which was initiated by the Investiture Conflict of 1075, was one of the major international issues of the time. It was not resolved until the 15th century. Copies of both editions are scarce. OCLC locates 5 copies of the second edition in North American law libraries (Columbia, Harvard, Library of Congress, Rutgers, University of Michigan).
