         A general map of Great Britain and Ireland with part of Holland Flandres, France.

      Artist: Homann Erben (d) ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: (d)1749 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Some restoration at lower centerfold; - size (in cm): 47,5 x 53,5; - description: Map shows total Great Britain with inset map of the Shetland Islands; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

         Recherches sur l'origine des idées que nous avons de la Beauté & de la Vertu. En deux traités: le Premier, sur la Beauté, l'Ordre, l'Harmonie & le Dessein; le Second, sur le Bien & le Mal Physique & Moral. Traduit sur la Quatrième Edition Angloise

      (Durand). 2 voll. in un tomo in-8° (165x105mm), pp. (10), 192; (4), 385, (1) di errata; legatura coeva p. pelle nocciola marmorizzata con filettatura a secco lungo il perimetro dei piatti. Titolo, filetti e decori floreali in oro entro scomparti su dorso a nervetti. Tagli rossi, sguardie marmoreggiate rosa. Due testatine istoriate incise su rame. Ex-libris manoscritto in data 1770 e altra firma del tempo cassata. Una nota di mano coeva alla p. 304 della seconda parte, con rimando a un refuso corretto nell'errata finale. Piccoli restauri alla legatura, qualche lieve fioritura e brunitura interna. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione in lingua francese di una delle maggiori opere della filosofia illuministica inglese, nonché il lavoro che dà avvio alla gloriosa tradizione filosofica scozzese. L'edizione non menziona né il nome dell'Hutcheson, né l'editore (il parigino Durand) né il traduttore, che fu molto probabilmente Marc-Antoine Eidous, forse con la collaborazione di Guillaume Laget. L'opera, apparsa in inglese nel 1725 e destinata ad avere larga influenza su Hume come su Adam Smith, su Ferguson come su Reid o, in seguito, sul Bentham teorico dell'"aritmetica morale", riconduce al "senso interiore" sia il bene che il bello. Se la riflessione etica di Hutcheson si pone ai primordi dell'utilitarismo moderno, anche il suo pensiero estetico riveste notevole importanza, riprendendo l'idea di Shaftesbury della bellezza morale e del forte connubio fra bellezza e virtù. "Dallo Shaftesbury dipende Francesco Hutcheson (1723), il quale rese popolare il senso interno della bellezza, come qualcosa che tramezza la sensualità e la razionalità ed è volto a conoscere l'unità nella varietà, la concordia nel molteplice, il vero, il buono e il bello nella loro sostanziale identità. A questo senso l'Hutcheson riconduce il piacere dell'arte, ossia dell'imitazione della rispondenza tra copia e originale: bello relativo da distinguere dall'assoluto" (Croce, Estetica, p. 227). Barbier, IV, 29: "La "France littéraire" de 1769 ayant attribué cet ouvrage à l'abbé Ed.Bonnet de Condillac, cette méprise a été copiée par Chalvet dans sa nouvelle édition de la "Bibliothèque du Dauphiné", et par Delandine dans la nouvelle édition du "Dictionnaire des grands hommes". La même "France littéraire" de 1769 assure avec plus de fondement que cet ouvrage a été traduit de l'anglais de Hutcheson; elle désigne M.-A. Eidous comme traducteur. On trouve la même assertion dans le préface d'un autre ouvrage de Hutcheson traduit par le même Eidous et imprimé à Lyon en 1770, sous le titre de "Systeme de philosophie morale". Voici les raisons qui me sont douter que M.Eidous soit le traducteur des "Recherches". Les "Reflexions" parurent en 1749, en deux volumes fort bien imprimés, sans aucune indication d'auteur, de traducteur ni de libraire. Ces omissions semblent bien avoir été faites à dessein.". Jessop, 144. Chuo, 127. Weller, II, 125. BNF [FRBNF33994384] individua l'editore nel Durand. Cfr. Mario Manlio Rossi in Dizionario Bompiani delle Opere, VI, p. Francese

         Histoire du théâtre françois, depuis son origine jusqu’à présent, avec la vie des plus célèbres poëtes dramatiques, un catalogue exact de leurs pièces, et des notes historiques et critiques.

      Paris, P.G. Le Mercier et Saillant, 1745-1749, pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés, lég. manque de cuir sur 2 dos, 17 coiffes arrachées ou en partie arrachées, épidermures et très lég. manques de cuir sur qq. plats, coins ém. (dont 6 très ém.), néanmoins reliure très solide. –Qq. rousseurs, cachets d’une bibliothèque religieuse sur les ff. de titre. - 15 volumes in-12 ; Brunet IV-369; Quérard VI-p. 594; Biblio. dramatique de Soleinne V-318."Parfaict (François) et Parfaict (Claude), littérateurs français, étaient frères: François naquit à Paris le 10 mai 1698 et y mourut le 25 octobre 1753; Claude naquit, dit-on, vers 1701, et mourut à Paris le 26 juin 1777. Le principal ouvrage dû à leur collaboration est l’Histoire générale du théâtre françois [ ]. Les premiers volumes avaient paru chez Morin (1734 et suiv.); il furent tirés à nouveau en 1745. L’ouvrage parut sans nom d’auteur. Il conduit le sujet jusqu’à l’année 1721. Outre les matières indiquées dans le titre, il donne des notices biographiques sur les principaux acteurs, et des extraits, parfois étendus, des pièces cataloguées. Les frères Parfaict ont profité, en les critiquant et contredisant souvent, des Recherches sur les théâtres de France de P.-Fr. Godart de Beauchamps (Paris, 1735, in-4, ou 3 vol. pet. in-8). Il y a bien des erreurs et des lacunes dans leur travail; en particulier, la chronologie des pièces de théâtre de 1550 à 1630 ou 1635 est souvent très contestable; beaucoup de dates proposées sont hypothétiques, et les hypothèses obtenues par une méthode peu sûre. Il ne faut donc pas s’en fier aveuglément aux frères Parfaict. Malgré ces réserves, leur recueil est un guide nécessaire dans l’étude du théâtre des XVIe et XVIIe siècles: ils ont travaillé consciencieusement et fournissent un très grand nombre de renseignements exacts. Leur goût est médiocre, mais il fait connaître le jugement des esprits moyens vers le milieu du XVIIIe siècle." (Encycl. Berthelot XXV-1047).

Les systèmes sont pour lui le "fruit d'une imagination déréglée plutôt que le résultat de l'observation".

In near VG or better condition, minor light surface age wear and toning as typical, some faint minor foxing in the blank margins, original fold-lines, narrow margins as issued.

         A True State of the Case of Bosavern Penlez, Who Suffered on Account of the Late Riot in the Strand. In Which the Law Regarding These Offences, and the Statute of George the First, Commonly Called the Riot Act, are Fully Considered

      London: A. Millar, 1749. First edition. [ii], 54 pp. 8vo. Modern quarter calf, cloth boards, uncut. Title creased and soiled, with two small closed tears, affecting one letter, some creasing and soiling to margins, paper flaw at top margin of B1, last leaf soiled and rubbed, affecting text. First edition. [ii], 54 pp. 8vo. First edition of Fielding's defense of the government's controversial decision to hang the young wig maker Bosavern Penlez after his involvement in riots at several London bawdy houses. Fielding, as chief magistrate, was responsible for quelling the riots, and it was his disclosure that Penlez had stolen linens from a brothel (a crime for which he was not convicted) that precluded a pardon and sealed the young man's fate. There are two 1749 printings, with the second printing not so designated on the title-page. The first printing is identifiable by the press marks 2-4, 16-1, 22-3, 32-4, 39-2 & 44-1 and the readings "Pulton" on p. 5 l. 22 and "Examples" on p. 12 l. 1. In the second printing, signature B and pages C3r, C4r-v, E1v, and E4r were reset, the remainder being printed from standing type. Cross III, pp. 319-20; Rothschild 852.

With 20 handcoloured engraved plates. Bound in 4 nice contemporary full leatherbindings with coloured labels and richly gilt on spines. One title-page cut close otherwise a nice clean and well-preserved copy with wide margin. Small stamps on title-pages. * A rare complete set of the most important and finest entomological German publication of the 18th century. The work was published by Rösel and his son-in-law Kleemann, both lived in Bavaria, in Nürnberg, working as artists, and both were ardent students of local natural history. "Rösel, 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. Rösel 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 handcoloured engraved frontispieces are of a great beauty and the plates, especially of his favourite group, butterflies and moths, usually show a complete life history, with eggs, larva, pupa and perfect insect. There was no title page published for the first issue of the supplement by Kleemann; a second issue of the supplement was published in 1792 which does have a printed title as well as 4 more plates. [Beiträge zur Natur- und Insectengeschichte], together with a second volume with 20 plates.Nissen ZBI, 3466 & 2201. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

La tesi generale di Montesquieu (1689- 1755), è che le leggi non sono solo una creazione di uomini - Lo spirito della legge è "le varie relazioni di leggi con cose diverse" - ma le cause sono formate dal multipla; quindi non ci sono cause fisiche (clima), cause morali (la religione, costumi ...) la giustizia più primitivo è la fonte della legislazione; Quindi non v'è infatti uno spirito di leggi. Ma il libro non è solo un trattato dello spirito della legge, è soprattutto un trattato di governi e, soprattutto, la libertà. Anche se il libro è stato molto letto, è stato accolto con una certa freddezza (dai filosofi, che non si riconoscono in Montesquieu uno di loro e mal sopportavano il suo conservatorismo) e molti critici (dalla Chiesa). - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition après l'originale de 1748 à Genève d'une rareté insigne ; il y aura une seconde édition corrigée en 1748 chez le même éditeur, également très rare ; celle que nous présentons constitue la troisième édition in 4 selon Tchemerzine, elle est rare, surtout en très bon état.

Livre emblématique et phare du XVIIIe 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), des causes morales (religion, moeurs...) ; 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 fût beaucoup lu, il fut accueillit avec une certaine froideur (par les philosophes, qui ne reconnaissaient pas en Montesquieu un des leurs et lui reprochaient son conservatisme) et beaucoup de critiques (de la part des ecclésiastiques).

      London: Printed & sold by Tho: Bowles Print & Map Seller in St. Pauls Church-Yard. 1749 - London: Thomas Bowles, 1749. (8 x 6 inches). 4 leaves of tables. Engraved title-page and 273 engraved road maps after Emanuel Bowen. Recent calf gilt (a bit rubbed). Fourth edition, first published in 1720 in its current format, but a reduced version of Ogilby's "Britannia" first published in London in 1675. "Ogilby secured the. title of His Majesty's Cosmographer early in 1671 [and] drew upon the support of the King and other patrons in the production and publication of Britannia, the work for which he became best known. Chiefly a road atlas, it was securely based on contemporary and collaborative research. Ogilby drew out 2519 miles of road in the form of 100 strip maps, a technique that was widely imitated throughout the following century. Measuring distances by waywiser (his "great wheel"), he made allowance for roads that ascended hills yet had to be depicted in two dimensions on paper, and his surveys helped to standardize the mile at 1760 yards throughout the kingdom. Britannia marked the first major advance in cartography in England since the Tudor period, though it did echo earlier traditions. It was republished in 1698, 1719, and 1720, and on subsequent occasions up to modern times" (DNB). This is one of Emanuel Bowen's earlier works, and his contribution to eighteenth-century world and British atlases would be substantial.   Condition Report Externally Spine – very good condition.

         L.A.S. de Buffon à La Condamine

      [Paris]. [1749], [1749], , 1 page in-12, manuscrit sur papier, cachet de cire aux armes de Buffon et adresse au recto, "Nous ne pouvons aler mon Cher Monsieur que Lundy prochain a Courbevoie ; le Samedy sera passé ainsi j'espère que vous pourrez venir avec nous mais en tout cas nous irons toujours M. Daubenton et moy. J'ai eu comme les autres le livre en question avec une lettre que j'ai reconnue pour etre circulaire mais à laquelle j'ai, à ce que je crois, répondu différement des autres". Nous déduisons la date de 1749 du titre donné par Buffon à La Condamine, "Directeur de l'Académie des Sciences" (Cf. Sturdy, Science and Social Status. The Members of the Académie Des Sciences, 1995 p. 423) ; La Condamine ne fut élu au poste de Directeur de l'Académie qu'une seule fois, en 1749, à la suite de Bouguer. À cette date, ce dernier publia La figure de la terre, ouvrage dans lequel il donnait les résultats, établis avec La Condamine, de leurs travaux réalisés lors de leur mission géodésique menée à Quito au Pérou pour mesurer le degré d'un arc de méridien à proximité de l'Equateur. Il pourrait s'agir du "livre" dont fait mention Buffon dans la présente lettre. (Notons aussi qu'en 1749 parait le premier volume de l'Histoire Naturelle de Buffon.) Buffon et La Condamine étaient des amis de jeunesse : Buffon lui permit d'obtenir un siège à l'Académie Française en 1760, et La Condamine lui donna, en 1745, de son retour du Pérou, des centaines d'objets d'histoire naturelle.

ON NAVAL ARCHITECTURE & NAUTICAL MATHEMATICAL SCIENCE. First edition of vol. II for this highly regarded study of nautical science and the physics of all things related to ships and their relation to water and dynamics. “With this work Euler made a major contribution to the study of fluid mechanics. . The second volume [present here] applies the general theory to ship design, and deals with ships in general, stability and equilibrium, the motion of ships, and the wind; as well, it treats of such parts as masts, sails, oars, and rudder.” â€" Verne L. Roberts & Ivy Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 105 [the Harrison D. Horblit copy]. There is no copy on the market at present and, seeing that Jonathan Hill also emphasizes (twice) of the scarcity of this book, it is also my opinion as well. [Cat. 187, item 36 $9,500].
