        Arte magica dileguata. Lettera del Signor Marchese Maffei al Padre Innocente Ansaldi dell’Ordine de’ Predicatori.

      Agostino Carattoni, Verona 1749 - "4to (260x190 mm); legatura moderna in cartone antico, con dorso in carta marmorizzata, guardie in carta bianca; pp. 51, (1 b.); frontespizio a caratteri neri con vignetta; testatina e capolettera ornati incisi in legno, macchioline alle prime carte. Edizione originale in barbe di quest’opera che inaugura una triade di testi dedicati dall’autore alla magia ed alla stregoneria: Arte magica dileguata (1749), Arte magica distrutta (1750) e Arte magica annichilata (1754). L'autore partecipò al dibattito di stampo illuminista riguardo al rapporto tra magia e religione: egli intervenne con questo testo, in cui mise in evidenza l’incompatibilità del cristianesimo ormai illuminato con la persistenza della magia. L’opera rispondeva polemicamente alla pubblicazione dello stesso anno del neo-platonista Tartarotti (De Congresso Notturno della Lammie) che secondo il Maffei non si spingeva abbastanza a fondo nella battaglia contro l’irrazionalità. Scipione Maffei (forme varianti: Pindemonte, Desiderato e Brenteatico, Orillo)(1675-1755), erudito, letterato, in Arcadia come poeta, nato e morto a Verona.

        Pair of Anatomical studies]

      H. Woodfall for John and Paul Knapton London 1749 - A pair of copper plate engravings. Framed and glazed, overall size: 112.4 by 83.5cm. Albinus' work, based upon his concept of the ideal man, is among the most artistically perfect of anatomical atlases. "Albinus and his artist, Jan Wandelaar, used some ingenious methods to prepare the illustrations, including the establishment of an optically ideal point of view (one at which all the bones of the skeleton are seen at right angles), dividing the human figure into sections using a mathematically constructed grid, and transferring each section onto paper in true size with the aid of compass and ruler. In addition, Wandelaar placed his skeletons and musclemen against lush ornamental backgrounds to give them the illusion of vitality, using contrasts of mass and light to produce a three-dimensional effect.

        LAS de Buffon à La Condamine

      [Paris]. [1749], [1749], , 1 page in-12, , «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" (voir Sturdy, Science and Social Status. The Members of the Académie Des Sciences, 1995 p. 423), qui ne fut élu au poste de Directeur de l'Académie qu'une seule fois à la suite de Bouguer, en 1749. A 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 sa lettre. Notons aussi qu'en 1749 parait le premier volume de l'Histoire Naturelle de Buffon. La Condamine et Buffon étaient des amis de jeunesse, ce dernier 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.

Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Epidermures sur les plats. Dos frotté. 2 coins émoussés. Bon exemplaire, plutôt frais. 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). [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] New edition after the original of 1748 in Geneva of a rarity badge; there will be a second edition corrected in 1748 by the same publisher, also very rare; the one we present is the third edition in 4 according to Tchemerzine, it is rare, especially in very good condition.

The emblematic and lighthouse book of the eighteenth century, The spirit of laws, that is, the principles and tendencies by which laws are made, will have a decisive influence on political life, and will be a guide for the drafting of the Constitution of 1791 and that of the United States. The general thesis of Montesquieu (1689-1755) is that laws are not only a creation of men. The spirit of laws is "the various relations of laws with various things" the forms are multiple; there are therefore physical causes (the climate), moral causes (religion, morals .); moreover a primitive justice is at the origin of the laws; There is, then, a spirit of laws. But the book is not only a treatise of the spirit which animates the laws, it is above all a treatise of governments, and above all, of liberty. Although the book was widely read, it was received with a certain coldness (by the philosophers, who did not recognize in Montesquieu one of their own and reproached him for his conservatism) and much criticism (on the part of the ecclesiastics). viij (16) 369pp. ; (2) 396pp. (14) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      3 p.l., xviii, 374 pp. 8vo, 19th-cent. calf-backed paste-paper boards, spine gilt, red & green morocco lettering pieces on spine. Paris: P. Prault, 1749. Gluc de Saint-Port, a member of a family whose thread-dyeing enterprise was closely allied to the royal Gobelins factory, was for some years the lover of the great woman book collector Jeanne Baptiste d'Albert de Luynes, Comtesse de Verruë (1670-1736). She presented Gluc with a number of art objects and he was a considerable art collector on his own account. This library is notable for its holdings of books about art and literature and for incorporating the library of Bernard de La Monnoye (1641-1728), the French lawyer, poet, philologist, and critic, best known for his carols Noel borguignon, written in the patois of Burgundy. He formed an important library of literature and many of the books were filled with his erudite annotations. Upon going bankrupt, he was obliged to sell his library to Gluc. La Vallière was a major buyer at the Gluc sale. Fine copy, priced throughout in a contemporary hand. 3473 lots. This catalogue is most uncommon; it is the first time I have handled a copy. Bookplate of the great Paris bookseller, Georges Heilbrun. The BnF copy has a ten-page "Supplement," not present here; it is very rare. ❧ Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions…1643-1830, 86. Guigard, II, pp. 236-37. Peignot, p. 122.

        Carte marine de l'Afrique meridionale

      Berlino 1749 - "Carta nautica pubblicata nel'atlante "Nouvel Atlas de Marine. Composé d’une Carte Generale, et de XII Cartes Particulieres, qui Representent Le Globe Terrestre " di Isaac Brouckner (Bruckner) che rappresenta il primo atlante nautico prussiano, edito per la prima volta nel 1749. La carta generale e le 12 particolari dell'atlante, tutte in proiezione mercatoriana, delineate dal Brouckner, furono incise su rame da Nicolaus Frdr. Sauerbrey, attivo a Berlino. L'atlante è preceduto da un testo con la spiegazione per l'uso delle carte fornita in 4 lingue: tedesco, inglese, francese e olandese. Il progetto dell'atlante nautico fu concepito dall'Accademia delle Scienze di Berlino, e infatti l'opera reca la dedica alll'allora direttore Samuel Count von Schmettau. Per la realizzazione delle carte, Brouckner si servì delle più recenti fonti disponibili presso l'Accademia berlinese, con il risultato di un'opera assolutamente accurata e aggiornata. Si ha notizia di un'edizione olandese dell'atlante, pubblicata 10 anni dopo la prima, nel 1759. Mentre il testo introduttivo reca la data aggiornata al 1759, le carte recano invece la data 1749, come nella prima edizione. Questa carta dell'Africa meridionale costituisce la tavola 9 dell'opera. Incisione su rame, aggiunto l'angolo inferiore destro, in ottimo stato di conservazione." "Map published in" Nouvel Atlas de Marine. Composé d’une Carte Generale, et de XII Cartes Particulieres, qui Representent Le Globe Terrestre " by Isaac Brouckner (Bruckner), the first Prussian Maritime Atlas, published first time in 1749. Drawn up by order of the Academy of Sciences in Berlin and dedicated to its director, Samuel Count von Schmettau . 1 world map & 12 charts – all in Mercator projection – engraved by Nicolaus Frdr. Sauerbrey (map engraver and engraver of arms in Berlin, d. about 1771), with explanation & exercise for the use of the charts in all four languages : German , English , French, and Dutch. For the preparation of the atlas Brouckner could fall back upon all recent sources available at the Berlin Academy of Sciences and used these indeed – so Phillips – to the greatest benefit of the atlas: " prepared by order of field-marshall count Samuel von Schmettau, who did so much in Prussia to raise the level of the scientific undertakings, not only theoretical but practical, of the Berlin Royal academy of sciences during the eighteenth century. In order that this atlas might be as complete as possible, Count von Schmettau placed at Brouckner’s disposal all the sheets and memoirs that were available, which were dealt with in a masterly way by the geographer, with the result that a most creditable marine atlas for the time was prepared, which certainly deserves to be designated as the first Prussian marine atlas . " "A little-known Dutch edition of Isaac Brouckner’s Nouvel atlas de marine, first published in 1749, Berlin, was also added by purchase" (Imago Mundi IX [1952], 116) – , its charts still carry, irrespective of the typographical Dutch text dated 1759, the unchanged year 1749 of present first edition. This Africa's map is the plate 9 of the atlas. Copper engraving, added the lower right corner, otherwise in perfect condition."

        De Nederlandsche spectator. Leiden, Pieter van der Eyk, 1749-1760. [12 delen in 6 banden].

      8º: 12 delen, met op de titelpagina's een vignet door J. Wandelaar, 1749. Halfleren banden met titelschildjes, goede set. Buijnsters (Spect) 16 Kalff VI, p.163."Complete set van deze tweewekelijkse spectator, waarvan in totaal 312 afleveringen zijn verschenen, elk van acht bladzijden. De onbekende redacteur geeft in de eerste aflevering een profielschets van enkele van zijn vrienden die hem zullen bijstaan: zij kennen hun talen, ieder van hen heeft een bijzondere deskundigheid, sommigen houden van poëzie en allen, de redacteur inbegrepen, zijn protestants, dit is genoeg wat hun en my betreft. De naam van één van zijn medewerkers is wel bekend geworden: de Alkmaarse rector en Neo-Latijns dichter E.W. Higt (1723 - 1762). Voorin elke jaargang staat een inhoudsopgave en deel XII bevat een index op alle delen. De titel is tegen het eind van de achttiende eeuw nog twee keer gebruikt: in 1786 voor een Amsterdams weekblad, maar uitgever J. Verlem (of redacteur H. Bergh) veranderde de naam al na 14 afleveringen in 'De Nederlandsche spectator met de bril', en in 1792 voor een Utrechts periodiek, uitgegeven door H. van Otterloo, waarvan 50 afleveringen zijn verschenen."

        Recueil de l'ensemble des triduanes, imprimées en 1748 et en 1749, présentées par les sept concurrents pour la dispute de la chaire de Gerard Fitz-Gerald, devenue vacante à la suite de son décès le 10 janvier 1748. Cette chaire était l'une des quatre chaires généralistes créées en 1498 : elles portaient le nom de Régences. Ces triduanes étaient imprimées et intitulées : "Quaestiones medicae duodecim [ ]. Pro regia cathedra vacante."

On donne ce nom à douze thèses qui doivent être soutenues dans l'espace de trois jours consécutifs, deux le matin et deux le soir. Pour composer et faire imprimer ces thèses, dont les sujets ont été assignés par les professeurs, juges de la dispute, on n'a que douze jours ; à peine sorties de la presse, on les distribue, et après un intervalle de quatre jours, on les soutient. La publicité qu'on leur donne par l'impression exige sans doute qu'elles soient travaillées avec beaucoup de soin ; mais fussent-elles un peu négligées, la brièveté du temps pourrait servir d'excuse." (Desgenettes, Éloges des académiciens de Montpellier, p. 290).Ce concours fut remporté par Charles Serane, qui fut titulaire de cette chaire jusqu'à sa mort (13 septembre 1756). (cf. Dulieu, La médecine à Montpellier).La page de titre des triduanes de Serane est reproduite par Dulieu t. III, 1ère partie, p. 40, celle de Gourraigne p. 88.Détail du recueil :1) GOURRAIGNE (Hugues).

After two years in Edinburgh, Scotland and one year on the Continent, Lowell was, from 1806 until his death, pastor of the West Congregational (Unitarian) Church of Boston. From that year until 1840, he traveled extensively in Europe and the east. During the latter part of his life Lowell officiated only occasionally in his church.

Second edition. Maundrell was the Levant Company's chaplain at Aleppo from 1696 until his death by fever in 1701. His Journey, published posthumously in 1703, proved popular and went through several editions - Bishop Newton thought the book "so ingeniously written it might serve as a model for all writers of travel". It contains the first, and surprisingly accurate, description by an Englishman of Balbec. The plates include views of Balbec and Aleppo, as well as details of inscriptions and similar material. Maundrell, of course had to travel from modern day Northern Syria through Lebanon to Jerusalem. - A fine specimen of superior typographic design and fine printing done by OUP in the attic of the Sheldonian Theatre. 'Maundrell is best-known for his account A Journey from Aleppo to Jerusalem at Easter A.D. 1697, published in Oxford in 1703, two years after his death. This scholarly narrative describes in detail the journey from Aleppo to Jerusalem and back, made by Maundrell and fourteen others in 1697. His motive was to undertake an Easter pilgrimage to Jerusalem, and the company departed at 3 p.m. on Friday, 26 February 1697. Their route took them across northern Syria to Latakia, down the coast to Acre, then to Jerusalem for the Latin Easter, then inland to the valley of the Jordan and Bethlehem, returning to Jerusalem for the Eastern churches' Easter. They returned to Aleppo via Damascus, Tripoli, and the earlier part of their outward route, returning to Aleppo on 18 May. The Journey was partially intended to bring up to date George Sandys's account of 1610, Relation of a journey begun an. dom. 1610. Foure bookes. Containing a description of the Turkish empire, of Aegypt, of the Holy Land, of the remote parts of Italy and llands adioyning. In fact, Maundrell's account is quite different from that of Sandys, and is a major work in its own right, giving detailed descriptions of the life and landscapes of Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine, including the agricultural practices of the regions and places encountered, in addition to descriptions of places of religious significance. The factual accounts of the relict features of the ancient worlds are of interest and value, and they are accompanied by careful measurements and plans of major sites such as Baalbek. Maundrell is critical of much of what he and his companions saw and experienced, but his accounts are well informed from contemporary and much earlier, classical and biblical sources, and written in an economic but witty and informative style. Later writers valued this work. Curzon, in his Visits to Monasteries in the Levant (1849), says that he ‘was struck with the superiority of old Maundrell's narrative over all the others, for he tells us plainly and clearly what he saw’ (Curzon, 168), and Howell, in a preface to a 1963 reprint of the Journey, says that ‘it is taut, disciplined writing from which every wrinkle of ambiguity has been ironed away’ (Howell, xi). Most of the nineteenth-century writers on the Holy Land, including Henry Robinson, Dean Stanley, Carl Ritter, and George Adam Smith, comment positively on Maundrell's account. A Journey from Aleppo to Jerusalem went through twelve editions by 1810 and it appeared in full and condensed form in later compendia of travels in the Levant and the Holy Land, including Thomas Wright's edited Early Travels in Palestine (1848). It was translated into French in 1705 and 1706, into Dutch in 1717, and into German in 1737, and remains an important account of the [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The promised justification in Number IV. Volume II. of the Apology.

      London: printed for the author; and sold at her house in Craig's Court Charing-Cross 1749 - 8vo., 53 + (1)pp., with the authoresses bold signature in ink> at the foot of the title page, 'Teresia Constantia Phillip[s]>', the final letter of her surname cropped, bound recently in marbled boards with printed spine label. An excellent, crisp, copy. Scarce first separate edition, but found also as a separate pamphlet in both first and second editions (1748-9) of the author's extensive Apology.> ESTC finds separate copies of the Justification> at only BL + Bodleian + Cambridge + Duke + St. Louis P.L. While her Apology> (in 3 vols.) is her magnum opus, her Vindication> is an intriguing codicil as it were. Described in ODNB as a 'courtesan and memoirist,' Teresia Phillips (1709-1765) seems to have been the serial lover of a string of men beginning with a man named Thomas Grimes, when Teresia was only twelve or thirteen, although the name was probably used as a deception, the real culprit being Thomas Lumley, later third Earl of Scarborough. Phillips' subsequent affairs and marriages (there were numerous affairs and several marriages) included a lawful marriage to Henry Muilman in 1724. She is at pains in her voluminous Apology> to suggest that there were extenuating circumstances surrounding each affair, admitting only to the faults of natural love of pleasure and a lack of prudence. Although written in the third person, Teresia Phillips describes herself as Mrs Muilman in her so-called Promised Justification.> [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

According to the ODNB, "The Journey was partially intended to bring up to date George Sandys's account of 1610 (Relation of a journey begun an. dom. 1610. Foure bookes.

        Essai sur la métamorphose des plantes. Geneva, Paris, J. Barbezat, 1829. 8vo. Original publisher's grey printed paper wrappers.

      Pritzel 3452; cf. DSB V, pp. 442-446 ; Norman Library 913 (first German ed.); Stiftung für Botanik 293 (first German ed.). First edition in French of an important botanical study by Germany's greatest poet, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) into the origins and processes of life. His scientific career had actually started at the court of Weimar, where he was summoned in 1775, and where his duties soon included the supervision of mining in the duchy. His main goal was finding a theory to explain all living forms, plants and animals. The Urpflanze , as an Urform of nature, would show - according to Goethe - the diversity of types which had evolved and would help chart the processes of life. His ideas on plant form had a considerable influence on European botany, and some people even considered them a precursor of Darwinism. The present work is a fascinating exercise in probing the "mind of nature" via a study of its phenomena, in this case plant life. As such, it is thoroughly representative of the school of Nature Philosophy. The work was first published in German in 1790, and was translated for this edition into French by Frédéric de Cingins-Lassaraz.Very good, untrimmed copy, slightly foxed, and somewhat dog-eared, small tear in front wrapper. Attractive copy of a study on the philosophy of botany by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
