Typographia Academiae Scientiarvm, 1749. Mit 98 gefalteten Kupfertafeln (komplett) Erste Ausgabe. - Einzelband des seltenen Werkes des großen deutschen Sibirienforschers Johann Georg Gmelin (1709-1755). In der Geschichte der wissenschaftlichen Erschließung Sibiriens steht Gmelin zwischen Messerschmidt und Pallas (Henze 2, S.356). Mit 22 Jahren erhielt er 1731 den Professorentitel für Chemie und Naturgeschichte an der 1724 gegründeten Russischen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Sankt Petersburg. 1732 wurde er von der Zarin Anna Iwanowna zur Teilnahme an der "Großen Nordischen Expedition" ausgewählt. 1733 begab sich Gmelin mit Müller und dem französischen Astronomen Louis De lIsle auf die Expedition. Gmelins Reiseroute führte über die Stationen Jaroslawl, Kasan, Tobolsk, Semipalatinsk, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Tomsk, Jenisseisk und Irkutsk bis Jakutsk. Ein Brand im Winter 1736/37 zerstörte einen Großteil der Aufzeichnungen und Sammlungen. Später kehrte Gmelin über Irkutsk, Tomsk, Werchoturje sowie Weliki Ustjug und Schlüsselburg nach St. Petersburg zurück. Mit der zehnjährigen Expedition legte er die Grundlage für das vierbändige Werk "Flora sibirica sive Historia plantarum sibiriae" (1747-1749). - 010

Edition originale de la seconde version du Platée de Rameau. Il s'agit ici du livret (sans partition) dans la version de 1749.

Le livret est tiré de "Platée ou Junon jalouse" du dramaturge Jacques Autreau. Rameau demanda à Adrien-Joseph le Valois d'Orville et à Ballot de Sauvot d'en renforcer l'aspect comique, avec notamment des rimes en "oi" qui rappellent le royaume des grenouilles. L'ouvrage est ensuite repris le 9 février 1749 à l'Académie royale de musique pour une vingtaine de représentations . À cette occasion un nouveau livret légèrement remanié par Ballot de Sauvot est publié. Il faudra attendre la reprise de 1754 pour que Platée obtienne un véritable succès. Rare. cat.

Provenance: Engraved bookplates of Sir Foster Cunliffe, 3rd Baronet (1755-1834), of Acton Park, Wrexham (the fortune of the Cunliffe family was made through slavery; his grandfather, also Foster Cunliffe, being the main slave trader in Liverpool), and John Blackburne (1754-1833), of Orford Hall, nr. Warrington, (MP for Lancashire 1784-1830). An inscription to the endpaper states, 'Given me by Sir Foster Cunliffe, J.B.' Blackburne's grandfather, also John (1693-1786), was a noted amateur botanist who cultivated impressive gardens at Orford, while his daughter, Anna (1726-1793), the younger John's aunt, corresponded with Carl Linnaeus and Johann Reinhold Forster on entomological subjects. 5th edition.

Lettre autographe signée « Mirabeau fils » à Monsieur Michaud, procureur du roi chez Mr Morand à Largillia. [20 février 1776]; 1/2 pages in-8°, adresse au dos, deux vestiges de cachet de cire rouge, page d’adresse avec salissures. Mirabeau recherché pour adultère se cache à Pontarlier, il se lie avec Jean-Baptiste Michaud, procureur du roi au baillage de Pontarlier, frère de Jeanneton sa maîtresse : « Sitôt ma lettre reçue, j’attends de votre amitié, mon cher ami, que vous monterez à cheval pour venir ici. Vous m’y trouverez où vos sœurs vous diront, et où elles seules sçavent, vous pourrez m’y voir sur le champ, Amenez Monvaiset ; priez-le de ma part de vous suivre tout de suitte ; je vous embrasse, ne tardez pas un instant.

Il est successivement frappé d’interdiction en 1774, emprisonné au château d’If puis au fort de Joux. Bénéficiant d’une clémence, il peut se loger dans la ville proche de Pontarlier. Il fréquente la bonne société et continue ses frivolités, la marquise Sophie de Monnier devient une de ses maîtresses, cela finit pas se savoir, ce qui l’oblige à se cacher à Pontarlier à la mi-janvier 1776, il est alors tenu au courant de la procédure d’emprisonnement à son encontre par l’avocat Mauvaiset, amant d’une fille légère, Marguerite Barbaud, chez qui Mirabeau rencontrait Sophie Monnier.

François-André (1726-1795), allievo di Campra, fu autore tra l’altro di oltre venti "opéras-comiques" e può essere considerato, per talento creativo e abilità tecnica, uno dei maggiori compositori teatrali francesi del Settecento. Coltivò pure, facendone una seconda professione, il gioco degli scacchi, imparato in giovane età da de Kermur, Signore di Légal, e per oltre quarant’anni ne fu l’incontrastato campione in Francia, Olanda, Germania e in Inghilterra dove, dal 1793, si stabilì. Di grande importanza la sua pubblicazione giovanile l’"L’Analyze des Echecs" (Londra, 1749, che fu poi intitolata "Analisi del gioco degli scacchi" nelle oltre sessanta edizioni successive in varie lingue) in cui, rifacendosi in parte a Ruy Lopez, cercò di esporre, in forma piana e accessibile a tutti, i principi delle varie fasi del gioco (apertura, mezzo, finale); nella prefazione di quest’opera è contenuta la definizione, rimasta proverbiale: ‘I pedoni.. sono l’anima degli scacchi’”.

Bell'esemplare, fresco e marginoso, con interessanti annotazioni di un lettore contemporaneo, che si firma al titolo come il prete Giovanni Francesco Orsini nell'anno 1759. Interessante miscellanea di quattro opere che si inseriscono nel dibattito razionalista di stampo illuminista che verso le metà del Settecento si occupò di magia nera, stregoneria e del rapporto di queste con la religione. Il volume è annotato e integrato con citazioni da fonti antiche e contemporanee, compreso il celebre Congresso notturno delle Lamie di Girolamo Tartarotti, da parte di un prete settecentesco che sembra proprendere per le tesi contro l'eccidio di donne considerate negromanti. Il primo raro, qui in prima edizione, riguarda uno degli ultimi e più discussi roghi per stregoneria nell'Europa moderna, quello della monaca Maria Renata Singer/Saenger von Mossau (1680-1749), accusata di aver intrattenuto rapporti carnali con il demonio da bambina e processata a Würzburg il 21 giugno 1749. Dopo la decapitazione, concessa dal vescovo per limitare le sofferenze della donna, aveva avuto luogo il rogo, accompagnato enfaticamente da un discorso pronunciato dal gesuita Giorgio Gaar. L'abate e filosofo Tartarotti aveva fatto tradurre a suo padre Francesco Antonio l'oraziane di Gaar.

Bernoulli, Johann II, Swiss mathematician (1710-1790).
Basel, 9. VIII. 1749. 8vo. 2 pages on bifolium. With autogr. address. A letter addressed to Jean Gesner, a professor of mathematics at Zurich, in which Bernoulli expresses his hope that the baths Gesner is taking are having a positive effect. He also thanks Gesner for the money he sent with his last letter. Concerning his late father's works, Bernoulli informs Gesner he will sell them to the latter's friend for a slightly lower price than whatever price any given bookseller would ask. Bernoulli ends his letter by referring to Jacques-Barthélemy Micheli du Crest (1690-1766), a Swiss military engineer, physicist, and cartographer, known for designing a thermometer based on the expansion of alcohol, calibrated using mercury. At the time of Bernoulli's letter, Michele du Crest was ill and in a Swiss prison for his political activities. Bernoulli writes that Micheli's life "is not in danger although if he is allowed to remain alive it is not due to a lack of willpower to make him die. Yet why does he not simply make thermometers for which he is more skilled even than disrupting republics" (transl. from the French original). - Johann Bernoulli II, also known as Jean, was the youngest of the three sons of the Swiss mathematician Johann Bernoulli (1667-1748). He studied law and mathematics, and succeeded his father as professor of mathematics in the University of Basel. - Usual folds, scattered foxing, and a small piece of paper loss where the paper was attached to the seal. Overall good.

Johann Matthias Gesner
Leipzig: Fritsch & Breitkopf, 1749. VERY GOOD. Professionally rebacked in leather to style, preserving original compartmented spine and covers.. Professional and unobtrusive reinforcement to endpapers in the first binding. Most pages very clean, bright, and not foxed. Very occasional typical spotting, but rather notable for the absence of any kind of toning or spotting rather than its presence. About three or four dogears from the original press. Binding tight but not overdone. Spine impressively clean and majestic in its original beauty. Full caps. Headband probably modern.

a Kempis, Thomas
Germantown: reprinted by Christopher Sowr, 1749. First American edition of The Imitation of Christ and the first printing of any work by a Kempis in America and one of the earliest works of Catholic Americana. In very good condition with some browning to the text and rubbing to the extremities. The Imitation is perhaps the most widely read Christian devotional work next to the Bible, and is regarded as a devotional and religious classic. Its popularity was immediate, and it was printed 745 times before 1650. Apart from the Bible, no book has been translated into more languages than the Imitation of Christ at the time. The text is divided into four books, which provide detailed spiritual instructions: "Helpful Counsels of the Spiritual Life", "Directives for the Interior Life", "On Interior Consolation" and "On the Blessed Sacrament". "A Female Hand" was the pseudonym for Elizabeth Singer Rowe, used in the Philadelphia edition of her works." (Evans, 6342) "Although Saur bought roman type from Franklin as early as 1743, the abbreviated translation of De Imitatio Christi by the English writer of pious works, Elizabeth Rowe, is his first English language publication." (Germantown and the Germans. An Exhibition of Books, Manuscripts. Edited by Edwin Wolf II). "Scarce, as most of the books printed at Germantown were used for cartridges during the revolution." (Sabin) "The most widely read devotional manual apart from the Bible, perhaps even surpassing the influence of such books as Pilgrim's Progress and St. Augustine's Confessions . an expression of the German-Dutch mystical sc … [Click Below for Full Description]
