Questa violazione è stata fatta da Laurent Durand. Leganti del tempo a pieno biondo screziato vitello. Torna con cinque nervi - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Contrefaçon de l'édition originale parue chez Barrillot (avec deux r) à Genève en 1748. Cette contrefaçon fut faite par Laurent Durand. Elle aurait été imprimée à Paris par Prault, et constitue dans l'ordre la seconde édition imprimée.   Reliures de l'époque en plein veau blond moucheté. Dos à cinq nerfs ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés, ainsi que de pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin havane. Triples filets dorés en encadrement des plats. Dentelle dorée en encadrement des contreplats. Toutes tranches rouges. Quelques pâles mouillures angulaires sans gravité. Une trace de mouillure sur le plat supérieur du tome I. Restaurations fines sur les coiffes, les mors (en tête et en queue), les coins.      Livre emblématique et phare du XVIIIème siècle, L'Esprit des lois, c'est-à-dire les principes et les tendances par lesquels se font les lois, aura une influence déterminante sur la vie politique, et sera un guide pour la rédaction de la Constitution de 1791 et de celle des États-Unis. La thèse générale de Montesquieu (1689- 1755), c'est que les lois ne sont pas seulement une création des hommes - l'esprit des lois c'est « les divers rapports des lois avec diverses choses » - mais que les causes qui les forment sont multiples ; il y a donc des causes physiques (le climat), et des causes morales (religion, mœurs...). De plus, une justice primitive est à l'origine des lois ; il y a donc bien un esprit des lois. Mais le livre n'est pas seulement un traité de l'esprit qui anime les lois, c'est avant tout un traité des gouvernements et surtout, de la liberté. Bien que le livre fut beaucoup lu, il fut accueilli avec une certaine froideur par les philosophes, qui ne reconnaissaient pas en Montesquieu un des leurs et lui reprochaient son conservatisme et reçut de nombreuses critiques de la part des ecclésiastiques. Bel exemplaire.

In questa raccolte non è impossibile trovare la lastra stampata in due metà, a formare due incisioni distinte." " - THE THIRD STATE OF SEVEN - Etching with engraving, circa 1748, signed on plate at lower right. From the contemporary Roman Edition. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark ""double encircled fleur de lys with letters CB"", with margins, very good condition. Taken from Vedute di Roma; the whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building." Hind 2, III/VII; Focillon 786. 640 500

        Les moeurs

      S.n. 1748 - - S.n., S.l. 1748, in-12 (9,5x16,5cm), 3 parties reliées en un volume. - Edition originale, illustré d'un frontispice, d'un fleuron de titre répété sur les trois pages de titre et de 3 vignettes de titre. Il aurait paru pas moins de 15 éditions à la date de 1748, et cette première édition n'est pas aisée à trouver. Reliure en plein maroquin noisette d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches dorées. Un coin restauré. Petits frottements. Un nom de possesseur biffé en page de titre. Très bel exemplaire, bien frais dans l'ensemble. L'édition anonyme fut attribuée à Diderot (auteur avec lequel avait travaillé Toussaint) et fut rapidement condamné. Le livre eut rapidement du succès bien que Toussaint se reprocha toute son existence de l'avoir écrit. C'est un ouvrage qui se fonde sur une morale et une justice naturelle, et qui récuse la nécéssité de la religion révélée, la morale naturelle étant indépendante des lois sociales amenées par la religion. Les pensées de l'auteur sur l'homme et la loi naturelle à laquelle toute la société devrait se conformer, ne sont pas éloignées de l'esprit de Diderot, mais Toussaint n'est pas Diderot et il ne cherchera pas à creuser et à démontrer ses idées, demeurant un modéré. Néanmoins et peut-être pour cette raison même, l'ouvrage aura un grand retentissement en 1748, et si son style n'est ni violent, ni véhément, il n'en reste pas moins défenseur de thèses propres aux lumières françaises et opposées à la société contemporaine ; le livre sera même perçu comme pouvant ouvrir au régicide !

Edition assez grossièrement imprimée, mais aux très beaux frontispices, bien dessinés et gravés. Les volumes III et IV ont une pagination continue, également pour les volumes IX et X, seul le volume IV, seconde partie de la Deuxième partie du roman, ne possède pas de page de titre. Elle est possiblement manquante. On notera que la plupart des exemplaires complets des 10 volumes dans les bibliothèques publiques  possèdent également des caractéristiques particulières, toutes les pages de titre n'étant pas présentes, idem pour les frontispices, ces exemplaires étant presque toujours composites. Reliure en pleine basane brune mouchetée. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin beige, et de tomaison de basane  brune. Coiffe de tête du tome I en partie manquante, ainsi que celle des tomes IV et VI ; un manque en queue du tome VI. Un manque au frontispice de la seconde partie (coin droit). Trace de mouilllure au tome III jusque la page 34. Bonne série dans l'ensemble. Ecrivain prolixe et fécond, La Calprenede entre dans le monde littéraire au moment de l'apogée du genre précieux et pastoral dont L'Astrée d'Honoré d'Urfé était déjà le modèle. Il y ajoute des princes, des rois, et des coups d'épée, bref les ingrédients du roman de chevalerie, telle La Jerusalem délivrée du Tasse ; le résultat est une série d'enlèvements, de combats, d'amours contrariés, bref un incroyable mélange entre le genre pastoral, celui de la chevalerie et celui des romans d'aventures grecs et latins, l'auteur semblant jouer adroitement de tous les domaines pour contenter son public. Ses oeuvres furent très appéciées et lues, mais on ne les considéra jamais comme sérieuses, à l'image de leur auteur, gentlhomme gascon de belle humeur. Cassandre est le premier des romans de l'auteur, il se déroule dans l'empire des Perses, bien après sa conquête par Alexandre le Grand. On le trouve ici dans sa rare version complète. Ce roman montre assez brillamment les derniers feux des romans de chevalerie, mais mis au jour du goût du public du XVIIe, avec une forte présence de l'Antiquité.

        La Topografia di Roma di GIO: BATTA NOLLI dalla maggiore in questa minor tavola dal medesimo ridotta

      1748. "Magnifico esemplare della celebre ""Pianta piccola"" di Roma moderna, disegnata da Giovan Battista Nolli e incisa dal figlio Carlo e, limitatamente alle vedute, da G. B. Piranesi. La pianta è detta piccola per distinguerla dalla grande, impressa su 12 fogli, di cui questa ne rappresenta la riduzione. E' numerata 33 - 34 perché seguiva, nella pubblicazione completa, l'indice e la pianta grande. Il titolo è riportato in basso, entro il piedistallo della colonna traiana. Accanto, entro un frammento architettonico su cui è riportata la ""scala in palmi romani d'architettura"", la sottoscrizione degli incisori C. Nolli e G.B. Piranesi. La dedica di G.B. Nolli al cardinale Alessandro Albani è datata ""Roma il dì primo del 1748"". L'indicazione di pubblicazione si trova nel lembo, ripiegato, del cartiglio sul lato destro. Le vedute del Piranesi raffigurano piazza San Pietro, la fontana di Trevi, Santa Maria Maggiore e Sata Croce in Gerusalemme. Acquaforte, impressa su due fogli di carta vergata uniti insieme, completa dei margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione." Plan of Rome, reduced from the large Nolli plan on 12 sheets, with various views below. Dated 1748 at the end of dedication to Cardinal Alessandro Albani , and signed 'Piranesi e Nolli incisero'. Numbered at top 33 on left and 34 on right. Nolli's large plan was published in 12 sheets in 1748, and he collaborated with Piranesi on this small reduction that appeared in the same sequence, after the index. This is why it has the plate number 33 at top left and 34 at top right. The plan is engraved by Giovani Battista Nolli and Charles Nolli, with decorative elements engraved by Giovanni Battista Piranesi. The map shows the center of Rome in great detail, lying on a sort of curtain deployed from the cherub at the top right, spectacularly placed in an urban setting which pays tribute to the policy of Pope Benedict XIV Lambertini (1740 - 1758). In the upper left a putti is shown supporting the coat of arms of Cardinal Alessandro Albani, to whom the work is dedicated, as noted in the inscription contained in the cartouche below. Just below, a legend in cludes a list of palaces, monuments and churches, which is continued at the right edge of the map. In the bottom center, on the ruins of a pedestal, the title is given, along with the names of the makers. At the bottom appear, a mirror - image of the Basilica of St. Peter is shown, the symbolic place of Christian Rome, along with the most prestigious architectural achievements of eighteenth - century Rome: the facade of the Basilica of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme di Pietro Passalacqua and Domenico Gregorini, the Fountain Trevi by Nicola Salvi and the facade of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore by Ferdinando Fuga. Etching, printed on two sheets of contemporary laid paper, joyned, in very good condition. Roma Rome Marigliani, 190; Frutaz CLXIX a - c; Wilton - Ely 1994 1007 690 467

        Memorie Istoriche Della Gran Cupola Del Tempio Vaticano E De' Danni Di Essa , E De' Ristoramenti Loro Divise In Libri Cinque.

      Folio (460 x 325 mm). Five books in one volume. Contemporary quarter calf over patterned paper-covered boards, brown morocco and gilt lettering piece to the spine, all edges speckled red; pp. [8], 118 leaves paginated in four columns recto and verso, apart from the final leaf which is paginated on the recto only, the pagination includes 9 folding, etched plates lettered A-G, H-K, 19 folding, etched plates hors-texte, numbered I-XIX; the binding rather rubbed at the extremities, the corners bumped, with some loss of the paper covering the boards, internally a bright, crisp copy. Provenance: 1. John Lewis Wolfe (1798-1881), architect and stockbroker, with his ink signature dated Rome, 1822, to the upper margin of the title 2. Joseph Gwilt (1784-1863), architect, with his engraved armorial bookplate to the front pastedown. 3. Sir Albert Richardson P.R.A. (1880-1964), architect, author and teacher, with his engraved bookplate to the front pastedown and his ink signature dated 1907 to the recto of the ffep. While the overall design of St. Peter's in Rome was Michelangelo's, work on the building continued throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries under a number of architects, each modifying the original design to a greater or lesser degree. The dome itself was left unfinished at the time of Michelangelo's death in 1564 and work on it was continued, first by Vignola, and then by Giacomo della Porta, the latter altering the profile of the dome to improve its stability. Nevertheless cracks appeared almost immediately upon its completion. Work on the nave and the façade of the building by Carlo Maderno and then Bernini probably contributed to a further weakening of the dome, a problem exacerbated by earthquakes occurring in 1703 and 1730. Nothing, however, was done to address the problem until the election of Benedict XIV as Pope in 1740. He appointed four successive commissions to report in exhaustive detail on the fabric of the entire building, the conclusion on each occasion being that in general the structure was basically sound and in particular that there was no danger of the dome collapsing. It wasn't until a fifth commission of twenty-nine experts under Giovanni Poleni, the Professor of Mathematics at the University of Padua, that a number of solutions were proposed: these included, as James Lees-Milne notes, 'substituting copper for lead on the dome, ... filling up the spaces made for Bernini's staircases to the loggias within the four crossing piers, ... strengthening the buttresses of the drum, and removing the lantern.' In the end it was Poleni's own proposal that prevailed, advising that the worst cracks should be filled and that the dome be encircled at strategic points with iron trusses; the positions of these may be seen in Plate K of the present volume. The work was carried out between 1743 and 1744 by the architect Luigi Vanvitelli. The Memorie was commissioned by Benedict in 1745 as record of the remedial works and comprises a history of the dome, details of the work of the fifth commission and the solution. The etched plates and ornaments are by Pietro Monaco after drawings by Poleni and Antonio Visentini respectively. According to Poleni himself only 700 copies of the Memorie, were printed. The present work has an interesting provenance having belonged to the architect, James Lewis Wolfe. It appears to have been purchased by him in Rome in 1822 at the end of a tour of Europe in the company of fellow architects that included Thomas Leverton Donaldson, the co-founder and first President of the R.I.B.A. Subsequently the volume seems to have found its way into the library of the architect Joseph Gwilt, to whom Wolfe had been articled in 1813. Wolfe's architectural career was short, concluding when he joined his brother's newly established company as a stockbroker, the pair establishing a highly successful business that continued until 1848. An interest in architecture, however, was continued by James, acting as adviser to his close friend, the architect Charles Barry. The design of the latter's Travellers' Club and the Reform Club both in London, owe much to Wolfe who had encouraged Barry to make a close study of the principal Renaissance buildings of Florence and Rome. In 1907 the volume was acquired by Sir Albert Richardson. Lees-Milne, James. St. Peter's. Hamish Hamilton, 1967. BAL Early Printed Books 2588

        Hafnia Hodierna, eller Udførlig beskrivelse om dem Kongelige-Residentz- og Hoved-Stad Kiøbenhavn.

      Engraved frontis. & 110 finely engraved plates (Plate IV is a long folding view of the city) and engraved head- & tail-pieces at the beginnings & ends of chapters. 7 p.l., 368 pp. Thick large 4to, a handsome Danish "mirror" binding of cont. calf with a mottled central panel surrounded by lighter frames, sides decorated in blind, gilt fillets round sides, spine finely gilt, contrasting leather lettering piece on spine. Copenhagen: E.H. Berling, 1748. First edition of the best architectural description of Copenhagen of the 18th century. It is important to remember than many of the buildings described and illustrated here were destroyed during the British bombardment of the city in early September 1807 during the Napoleonic Wars. Thurah (1706-59), was "the most significant representative of late baroque architecture in Denmark...after cadet studies in Copenhagen, he received instruction as an officer and military engineer in 1725-1727, studies that also embraced architectural training. Travels to Germany Italy, France, Holland and England further broadened his horizons. Shortly after his return to Denmark, he received the appointment of royal architect and went on to enjoy a distinguished and prolific architectural career."-Beasley et al., Millard Architectural Collection, Volume III, Northern European Books, pp. 38-39. Copenhagen in the 18th century experienced a construction boom, and enjoyed the happy combination of royal builders with broad views and daring thought and highly gifted private architects. The plates depict many of the buildings constructed in the first half of the century. The text is printed in Danish, French, and German in parallel columns. An uncommonly fine copy in a most handsome "mirror" binding which was a popular style in Denmark in the 18th century. .

        A Voyage round the World in the Years MCXL, I, II, III, IV

      [24]+548 pages. Octavo (8 1/4" x 5 1/2"). Bound in leather. Three folding engraved maps present, southern part of South America; part of the Pacific Ocean and the track of the Centurion round the world. Compiled from papers and other materials of the Right Honourable George Lord Anson, and published under his direction, by Richard Walter, M.A. Chaplain of his Majesty's Ship the Centurion, in that expedition. (Hill I, pp 317-138). Third edition."This is the official account of Anson's voyage. England, at war with Spain in 1739, equipped eight ships under the command of George Anson to harass the Spaniards on the western coast of South America, for the purpose of cutting off Spanish supplies of wealth from the Pacific area. Lord Anson, who was a friend and patron of Benjamin Robins, after returning from the voyage around the world in the Centurion, appears to have entrusted to Robins, for revision, the account of the voyage which had been compiled from the journals by his chaplain, Richard Walter. It is probable that Robins revised and edited the work, wrote an introduction, and added dissertations." (Hill). Perhaps the most popular account of maritime adventure of the eighteenth century. Anson's account of harrying the Spanish of South America, and the taking of the Manilla galleon with treasure with a contemporary value of $800,000, and his circumnavigation has long enjoyed a distinguished place as a masterpice in descriptive travel.Condition:Some small closed tears at the edges of the maps. Rebound in tooled leather with raised bands. Over all a very good to fine copy.

        Relacion del funeral entierro, y exequias de el Illmo. Sr. Dr. D. Manuel Rubio y Salinas, Arzobispo que fuè de esta Santa Iglesia Metropolitana de Mexico.

      From January 1748 until his death in early July 1765 Manuel Rubio y Salinas served as archbishop of Mexico City, a period that coincided nicely with the rebirth of the Mexican mining industry and the creation of great wealth, new secular and ecclesiastical establishments, and a building boom in the viceregal capital. Rubio and the Church benefitted from the new wealth in significant material ways, but social justice concerns and religious duties were always high on the bishop's list of things requiring his attention, as demonstrated for example in => his leadership in securing the 1754 papal declaration making Our Lady of Guadalupe the patron saint of New Spain. When Rubio died, the entire viceregal capital turned its energy to commemorating him, much of which is summarized in this volume. It includes a Spanish-language account of the archbishop's last days, his death, and burial (pp. 1-87), followed by Pedro Jose Rodriquez de Arizpe's Latin-language funeral oration ("Maximum occidentis sidus. Ilmus, nempe d. doct. Emmanuel Josephus Rubio, et Salinas . . . In cujus solemni funere quinto idus octobris ann. MDCCLXV, declamabat p. doct. Petrus Josephus Rodriguez, et Arizpe," pp. 87-112), and ending with Cayetano Antonio de Torres's Spanish-language funeral sermon (pp. 115-51).The Spanish-language account of the burial includes a detailed description of the funeral monument (i.e., cenotaph) that the city erected for the archbishop, including the inscriptions and epigrams that were by F.J. Alegre. Following the last page of the text, there is => a large folding engraved plate by Manuel Villavicencio after the design of the monument by Miguel Cabrera, "pintor americano." The engraving is detailed, exquisite, and includes a measure of scale. => A good source for the study of Mexican colonial architecture, commemorative ceremonies, and treatment of and thinking about death.
