        TRAITÉ D'OPTIQUE MECHANIQUE

      Paris: Jean-Baptiste Coignard, Antoine Boudet, 1749. FIRST EDITION n. In a binding featuring the armorial device of a distinguished French statesman, this is an attractive copy of a book on practical optics by the official optician to the Queen of France. An engineer and maker of optical instruments, Marc Mitouflet Thomin (1702-52) was one of the first French artisans to offer eyeglass frames. In this work, he explains the principles and processes for crafting lenses, microscopes, telescopes, binoculars, and various other optical devices in a manner that could be grasped by the average layman. The second part of the work, on making eyeglasses to correct vision, was originally published in 1746 and was critical in making Thomin's fortune. Marie Leczinska, wife of Louis XV, suffered from poor eyesight, and upon learning of Thomin's devices for treating this problem, she became his most prominent customer, appointing him "optical engineer" to the queen. Our prior owner was another member of the court of Louis XV: Pierre Étienne Bourgeois de Boynes, Marquis de Boynes (1718-83), who served as Secretary of the Navy for France. It is possible his interest in this subject related to his own eyesight, or perhaps to his naval duties, as he undertook a number of reforms to modernize the French fleet.. 203 x 140 mm. (8 x 5 1/2"). xii, 372 pp., [2] leaves (errata, privilege). FIRST EDITION. Attractive contemporary calf, covers gilt with French fillets, rose cornerpieces, and the coat of arms of Pierre Étienne Bourgeois de Boynes, Marquis de Boynes at center; raised bands, spine compartments with central floral sprig within a lozenge of small tools, volute cornerpieces, maroon morocco label, old repairs to joints, gilt-rolled turn-ins, endleaves patterned with alternating rows of gilt stars and dots, all edges gilt. With engraved title vignette and four folding plates containing 35 figures illustrating various optical instruments and their uses. Wellcome V, 258; Blake, p. 449. Joints and extremities a little rubbed, with lower corners worn to boards, minor spotting to covers, a small cluster of tiny scratches to upper board, dampstain to one-quarter of front pastedown, other minor internal defects, but still a very good copy, the text generally clean and fresh, the plates crisp and rather bright, and the binding sound and still appealing.

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

      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.

        L'Amour dévoilé, ou le sistême des simpathistes, Où l'on explique l'origine de l'Amour, des Inclinations, des Simpathies, des Aversions, des Antipathies, &c.

      - S.l., 1749. In-12, plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs orné fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièce de titre de maroquin fauve, coupes filetées, tranches rouges (petit accroc à la coif. inf.), viij, 170 p. Edition originale du premier ouvrage de Tiphaigne de La Roche. Comme toutes les productions de l’auteur à la fois originales, utopiques et anticipatrices, cet essai contient une tentative novatrice pour donner une explication scientifique à l’attirance amoureuse et sexuelle entre les êtres humains. "L’amour pour lui est engendré par une vapeur subtile et invisible, la 'matière sympathique', ou 'matière transpirante', que les hommes répandent autour d’eux comme les fleurs répandent leur parfum. Les jeunes gens sont particulièrement pourvus de cette matière, qui inspire des passions fulgurantes" (J-C. Bologne, ‘Du coup de sympathie au coup de foudre’ [en ligne], Bruxelles, ARLLFB, 2016). Cette approche qui anticipe ce qu’on identifiera comme action des phérohormones, s’inscrit dans la morale libertine de son temps: l’incapacité de résister aux "mouvements de la Nature" et nécessité de gouverner ses penchants "en philosophe", en s’y soumettant sans hypocrisie ni contrainte morale. Tiphaine de la Roche était médecin diplômé de l’université de Caen. (Gay I, 115. Versins, 'Encyclopédie de l'utopie', p. 887). Contient relié en tête du volume : [BOUGEANT (P. Guillaume Hyacinthe)]. Amusement philosophique sur le langage des bestes. Nouvelle édition. Augmentée d'un Avertissement, d'un Discours préliminaire, d'une Critique, avec des Notes, & de la Rétractation de l'Auteur. Amsterdam, Aux dépens de la Compagnie, 1750. (2) f., xlvi p., (1) f., 134, 50 p. de supplément. Très bon exemplaire, bien relié à l'époque. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Manuscrit. Paris 15 septembre-13 octobre 1749. Apposition des scellés dans l'hôtel de la rue Traversière, après le décès de Mme du Châtelet.

      1749 - 12 cahiers petit in folio, cousus ensemble, 278 pp. (ff. paginés), timbres notariaux de la généralité de Paris. Rousseurs et mouillure en marge supérieure touchant parfois au texte. Acte ordonné par Florent Claude du Châtelet, veuf de la marquise, signé par Louis Cadot "avocat en parlement Conseiller du roy, commissaire enquêteur examinateur au Châtellet de Paris". La marquise étant décédée le 10 septembre 1749 à Lunéville, il a été procédé, pièce après pièce, étage après étage, aux scellés des meubles et effets de son hôtel de la rue Traversière (démoli en 1840, situé dans l’actuelle rue Molière à Paris) en attendant l’inventaire complet, qui sera dressé au début du mois d’octobre. C’est dans cet hôtel que Voltaire et Mme du Châtelet habitaient lors de leurs séjours parisiens, notamment en 1746 et 1747, et où logea quelques temps le philosophe après la mort de son amie. Les dernières pages du manuscrit concernent la reconnaissance devant témoins et la levée des scellés apposés à Argenteuil, propriété acquise par la marquise en 1748.

        Del congresso notturno delle lammie. Libri Tre di Girolamo Tartarotti roveretano. S'aggiungono due dissertazione epistolari sopra l'arte magica. All'Illustrissimo Signor Ottolino Ottolini, gentiluomo veronese, Conte di Custoza &c.

      - "Rovereto, a spese di Giambatista Pasquali Libraro e Stampatore in Venezia, 1749. In 4to, front. in rosso / nero con fregio xil., pp. XXXII (rivolte al Dedicatario Illustrissimo Signore Ottolino Ottolini, con la Tavola de' Capitoli di tutta l'Opera e con l'Introduzione), 460 + 2 di Errori e Correzioni, testatine, capolettera e finali incisi riccamente ornati e istoriati. Alla p. 317 e fino alla p. 350 è contenuta una lettera dell' illuminista Gianrinaldo Carli rivolta al Tartarotti "Intorno all'origine, e falsità della dottrina de' Maghi, e delle Streghe"; dalla p. 351 alla p. 447, ossia alla fine dell'opera, è la replica del Tartarotti; le pp. 448 - 460 sono relative all'Indice degli autori citati in questi due scritti aggiuntivi, leg. orig. in cartonato alla rustica con tit. ms. su tassello al dorso. Interessante l'introduzione che serve da buona bibliografia sull'argomento, ivi si elencano, riassumendone il punto di vista, molte opere edite dal 1500. Testo non particolarmente raro ma basilare ed esaustivo. Usuali difetti del tempo: segni di uso alla legatura, gualciture alla prime carte bianche, un visibile, leggero alone di umido interessa il margine esterno dei fogli fino a un terzo del volume; nell'insieme esemplare fascinoso e ben conservato. Girolamo Tartarotti (Rovereto, 1706 – ivi, 1761) dopo aver confutato gli scrittori che accettavano la realtà delle streghe, analizza l`origine, i pregiudizi e le false opinioni della favola popolare riguardante il Congresso Notturno, punto focale da cui dipendevano le accuse e le punizioni delle streghe. In questa sua celebre opera intervenne nel dibattito del tempo sulla stregoneria con una critica serrata alle persecuzioni ecclesiastiche contro la stregoneria e l'arte magica. Ridicolizzando le teorie di Martino Del Rio, oggetto frequentissimo delle polemiche del volume, il Tartarotti intese dimostrare la vanità e inconsistenza del sabba e della pena di morte inflitta alle persone sospette di stregoneria. L'opera gli valse gli elogi di Ludovico Antonio Muratori e i duri attacchi da parte delle autorità clericali e di numerosi letterati, tra cui Scipione Maffei, che si industriò di confutare le credenze magiche tartarottiane con la lettera "L'Arte magica dileguata" (1749): poiché al tempo stesso il Tartarotti ammetteva l'esistenza delle pratiche magiche e quindi della magia, lo Scipione Maffei polemizzò contro di lui. Ne nacque un'aspra polemica con prese di posizione per il Tartarotti o per il Maffei, in una quantità di pamphlets editi quasi sempre anonimamente. In ogni caso, il Tartarotti, spinto all'esame dei processi per stregoneria da pietà nei confronti delle imputate, quasi sempre povere contadine, tentò di dare una risposta sociale al problema, che, anche geograficamente, pareva circoscritto alle regioni più povere e arretrate: [ ] "Attraverso l'indagine sulla stregoneria, appariva agli occhi del Tartarotti un mondo popolare, misero, lugubre. isolato anche nei suoi sogni e nelle sue visioni fantastiche" [.] (Venturi) (Bibliotheca Magica Casanatense, p. 1161; Gamba, p. 2465; Bibl. Magica et Pneumatica, p. 30; Parenti "Prime edizioni italiane", p. 480; Graesse. Manca a Caillet, Dorbon, De Guaita, Yve-Plessis; per la risposta al Maffei, edita nel 1751 e costituente un'aggiunta alla presente opera, vedi V. Rosenthal, p. 4132 e Olschki, p. 13422 ). Il Tartarotti scrisse anche le "Rime" (di cui una scelta fu pubblicata postuma, nel 1785) e le "Memorie antiche" relative alla sua città (1754). Per aver negato la santità e il martirio del vescovo Adalpreto, cadde in disgrazia presso il vescovo di Trento, al punto che, quando nel 1762 i concittadini gli eressero un busto, furono colpiti dall'interdetto, che fu tolto soltanto per intervento dell'imperatrice Maria Teresa d'Asburgo (cfr. Treccani, Enciclopedia on line; per approfondimenti bibliografici sull'Autore vedi Marino Berengo, "La letteratura italiana. Storia e testi", vol.

        THE HISTORY OF TOM JONES, A FOUNDLING

      London: Printed for A. Millar, 1749. FIRST EDITION, First State, with all points noted by Cross and Rothschild n. This is a tastefully bound copy of Fielding's 18th century classic and a landmark publication, here complete in the first issue of its first edition. As Cross says, "No one before Fielding had ever written a novel comparable with his in its reliance upon contemporary facts of human nature, and this brilliant and innovative narrative met with such immediate commercial success that the first printing [of 1749] was sold out before its printing could be finished, and at least four more editions were published in the same year as the first." The work is divided into 18 books, each preceded by an introductory essay (wherein can be found some of Fielding's best prose) on some theme more or less connected with the story, in the manner subsequently adopted by Thackeray and George Eliot. The plot begins with the finding and raising of Tom by Squire Allworthy and his sister Bridget and then follows Tom's adventures, many amorous, after his banishment from the Allworthy house prompted by bad behavior. In the comic ending, mysteries are revealed and relationships set aright. Day says this was the first avowed novel in English (Fielding's precursor, Defoe, claimed his stories were true and Richardson said that his were akin to sermons), and a work that some still call the greatest novel in English because of its attention to characters set against the backdrop of society. Our first issue set has the errata uncorrected in the first five volumes, and volume VI is also in the first state because leaf [B5] is unsigned. The title to volume V is of the earliest setting, with the motto reading "Mores Hominum Multorum.". 165 x 102 mm. (6 1/2 x 4"). Six volumes. FIRST EDITION, First State, with all points noted by Cross and Rothschild. FINE LATE 19TH CENTURY MOTTLED CALF IN THE STYLE OF THE PERIOD BY RIVIERE AND SON (stamp-signed on the front flyleaf of each volume), covers with double fillet borders and rosette corners, raised bands with dotted ruling, spine compartments with palmettes within lobed panels at top and bottom, curled tool cornerpieces, and other small ornaments, densely gilt-rolled turn-ins with dogtooth border, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt (each volume very expertly rejointed). Faint contemporaneous owner's signature (of Richard Bayne?). Cross III, 316-17; Rothschild 850. Very tip of corners worn, a bit of rubbing along edges, text a shade less than bright (isolated gathering with a little darker overall toning), but a very pleasing set, the decorative bindings with no serious condition issues, and the text fresh and smooth.

        Amstelland kaart, Covens & Mortier, 1749.

      AMSTELLAND KAART"Carte Particuliere d"Amstelland ou les Environs d"Amsterdam, Muyden, Weesp, Naarden &c. / PARTICULIERE KAART VAN AMSTELLANDT of het omleggende van Amsterdam, Muyden, Weesp, Naarden &c.' Afm. (prent): 64,5 x 52 cm.Kopergravure uit 1749, uitgegeven door Johannes Covens en Cornelis Mortier te Amsterdam. Later met de hand gekleurd.Deze kaart toont het gebied ten zuiden van Amsterdam waar sinds ca. 1530 turfwinning plaatsvond. De toenemende bevolking en het steeds kleinere bosareaal hadden een groeiende vraag naar turf als brandstof doen ontstaan. Zelfs hele dorpen gingen aan de aan de honger naar brandstof ten onder. (Zie het "Geweeze Dorp Tamen' ten noorden van Uithoorn.) Vanonder de waterspiegel vandaan werd het veen opgebaggerd en op de smalle legakkers gedroogd en verwerkt. De door vervening ontstane plassen (aangeduid met 'rafelrand") zijn duidelijk zichtbaar linksonder op de kaart. Bijlmermeer, Naardermeer, Horstermeer en Haarlemmermeer (met 'gepolijste" oever) daarentegen zijn van oorsprong natuurlijke meren in het veengebied.  Van al deze plassen en meren is thans alleen nog het Naardermeer een watergebied.Literatuur: Donkersloot-De Vrij "De Vechtstreek' (1985), pp 110-111; Heinemeijer/Wagenaar "Amsterdam in kaarten' (1987), pp 98-101.Prijs: € 2.350,- (incl. lijst) .

      Madrid, en la Imprenta de Antonio Marin, 1749.. FIRST EDITION. 8°, contemporary stiff vellum, flat spine with citron morocco lettering piece, title in gilt, text block edges rouged, blue silk ribbon place marker. Small Maltese cross at top of title page. Woodcut headpiece and initial on p. 3. Crisp and clean; in fine condition. 175 pp. *** FIRST EDITION. The @Dissertacion concerns the much debated question of the boundaries between Spanish and Portuguese possessions in South America. The authors discuss Pope Alexander VI's papal bull of 1493 and the Treaty of Tordesillas, 1494, which set the original limits of expansion, and then discuss more recent negotiations that had resulted in a provisional treaty. (The boundaries were definitively set in 1750, by the Treaty of Madrid.) The final part of the work is concerned with early discoveries in South America, and includes a long section devoted to the discovery and occupation of the Amazon Basin by the Portuguese (pp. 119-73). Jorge Juan (1713-1773) and Antonio Ulloa (1716-1795), Spanish naval officers with diverse political, scientific and even book collecting interests, are best known for their @Relacion historica del viage a la America Meridional .... Madrid, 1748, the most widely read account of the expedition dispatched under the auspices of the French Academy of Sciences to measure an arc of the meridian at the Equator. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 430-1.

        Annaes historicos do Estado do Maranhão ….

      Lisbon, Officina de Francisco Luiz Ameno, 1749.. FIRST EDITION. Folio (30 x 21 cm.), modern quarter morocco over cloth (slight wear to hinges), spine with raised bands in six compartments, gilt letter in second and fourth compartments, gilt date at foot. Title page in red and black. Large woodcut initials. In fine condition, except for moderate soiling on the title-page. Overall in very good condition. (13 ll.), 710 pp. Pages 247 and 275 misnumbered 147 and 175, respectively. *** FIRST EDITION, very rare, of this fundamental source on the history of Maranhão. Varnhagen called it "um dos mais preciosos livros que ácerca de nossa historia possuimos" (@História geral II, 874) and Borba de Moraes comments, "This first edition is rare and much sought after, as it is a classic on Maranhão." The author covers the military, political and religious events in Maranhão from its discovery until 1718, the year he became its governor. The Estado do Maranhão originally encompassed the entire north of Brazil, from Amazonia to Ceará. The @Annaes is an especially important source for the colonization of Maranhão, for the Dutch in Brazil and for the @bandeirantes (especially the expedition of Antônio Raposo Tavares, who left São Paulo in 1648, traveled to Paraguay and via the Guaporé, Mamoré, Madeira and Amazon Rivers to Gurupá in Pará, arriving there in 1651). Pereira de Berredo, Governor of Maranhão from 1718 to 1722, was vehemently anti-Jesuit. He died in Lisbon in 1748 while preparing this book for the press. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 103.

El filósofo suizo Jean-Jacques Rousseau le envió el mensaje: «Dígale que no conozco a un hombre más grande en la tierra».1 El escritor alemán Goethe escribió: «Con la excepción de Shakespeare y Spinoza, no conozco a nadie, entre los que ya no viven, que me haya influido más intensamente». El autor sueco Strindberg escribió: «Linneo era en realidad un poeta que se convirtió en naturalista».Entre otros cumplidos, Linneo fue llamado «Princeps Botanicorum» («Príncipe de Botánicos»), «El Plinio del Norte» y «El Segundo Adán». Asimismo, es considerado héroe nacional de Suecia. ===Amoenitates Academicae es el primer título de una obra en varios volúmenes del naturalista Carlos Linneo, en la que se iban publicando las tesis de sus estudiantes.
