Two years later, he was admitted F.R.S. and made the acquaintance of Newton. In 1722, he went to France and won the prize of the French Academy of Sciences. On the recommandation of Newton, he was elected professor of mathematics in the University of Edinburgh in 1725 and helped form the Royal Society of Edinburgh... The prefixed account of the life and writings of the author is still the chief authority on him. The four books of this work treat : Of the method of proceeding in natural philosophy ; and the various systems of philosophers ; Of the theory of motion, or rational mechanics ; Gravity demonstrated by analysis ; The effects of the general power of gravity deduced synthetically. The last chapter treats of the supreme author and governor of the universe, the True and living god and ends with an argument in favor of a future life, which was dictated by the author but a few hours before his death".

Album Amicorum
Nürnberg und Altdorf, 1717. 179 Bll. mit 51 Eintragungen sowie eh. Besitzvermerk Webers auf Bl. 2r. Zeitgenöss. brauner Lederband mit reicher Rücken- und Deckelvergoldung, Brokatpapier-Vorsätzen und dreiseitigem Goldschnitt. Quer-8vo. Einzigartiges Gelehrten-Stammbuch des Philologen und Rektors der Nürnberger Spitalschule Nikolaus Weber (1699-1751) mit Einträgen von vorwiegend Wissenschaftlern der Universitäten Nürnberg und Altdorf. Unter den beinahe ausnahmslos biographisch nachweisbaren Beiträgern der schwedische Astronom Andreas Celsius (1701-1744), der sich unterm 22. Juli 1733 wie folgt eintrug: "Problema: Unam eandemq[ue] theologiam et religionem per universum terrarum orbem propagare. - Resolutio: Doceatur ubiq[ue] gentium Philosophia certa et solida" (Übers.: Problem: Wie läßt sich auf der ganzen Welt ein- und dieselbe Theologie und Religion verbreiten? - Lösung: Indem allen Völkern überall eine feste und sichere Philosophie gelehrt wird). Celsius hatte 1732/33 im Auftrag der schwedischen Krone die wichtigsten Observatorien Europas besucht, um sich über den neuesten Stand der Astronomie zu informieren. Seine astronomische "Grand Tour" hatte ihn auch nach Nürnberg geführt, wo er drei Monate bei dem Astronomen Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (s. u.) gewohnt und regelmäßig an den fachwissenschaftlichen Gesprächen teilgenommen hatte, die im Haus des Mediziners Christoph Jacob Trew (s. u.) stattfanden. Aus dem Jahr 1733 datiert nicht nur Celsius' Eintragung, sondern auch seine Schrift "316 Observationes de Lumine Boreali" - die erste zusammenfassende Beschreibung des Nordlicht … [Click Below for Full Description]

BUFFON, (G.L.L.) & LACEPEDE, (B.G.E.).
Paris, l' Imprimerie Royale, Hôtel de Thou, Plassan, 1749-1804. 44 volumes. 4to (245 x 192mm). With 1 engraved portrait of Buffon, 4 folded tables, 12 engraved maps and 1261 engraved plates. Contemporary almost uniform calf, richly gilt decorated spines with red and green gilt lettered labels. A fine and attractively bound set of the rare first edition including the posthumously published volumes written by Lacépède on fishes, amphibians, snakes and whales. A well preserved set, of this great classic on natural history, dealing almost exclusively with zoology. Buffon's work enjoyed such a popularity that numerous editions and continuations were published throughout the 18th and 19th century. These, however, should not be confused with the above sumptuously printed 'Imprimerie Royale' edition. All plates are engraved after drawings by De Sève, the famous French landscape painter. The animals are depicted in their natural habitat, together with charming landscapes, villages, mountains etc. These elaborately drawn plates, full of elegance, became very popular and were frequently imitated. The work is composed as follows: Histoire Naturelle . 15 volumes; Suppléments 7 volumes; Minéraux 5 volumes; Oiseaux 9 volumes; Quadrupèdes ovipares et des serpens 2 volumes; Poissons 5 volumes; Cétacées 1 volume.". he opens his great work with an essay called 'Théorie de la Terre', in which for the first time he outlines a satisfactory account of the history of our globe and its development as a fitting home for living things. This rejection of a rigid system of classification, to which most … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vien, Joseph-Marie
[Paris, c. 1749]. Folio (368 x 255 mm). Etched and engraved title and 31 etched plates (numbered 1-30 and one unnumbered). Contemp. French red morocco gilt, arms of Louis-François-Armand de Vignerot du Plessis, duc de Richelieu et de Fronsac on covers (Olivier 407, fer 15), within gilt border of Richelieu’s repeated motif of two crossed batons intertwined with an ornamental "R", repeated with coronet within arabesques at the corners, spine gilt in compartments with same motif. First edition; a large-paper copy with Richelieu's arms. Vien's charming series of etchings depicts the costumes worn by members of the French Academy in Rome for a "Turkish masquerade" held during the Carnival celebrations of 1748. This masque is an outstanding example of the influence the orient exerted on western style during the late-Baroque era, showcasing the degree to which cultural transfer was possible and even a matter of enthusiastic adoption by the west but little more than half a century after the siege of Vienna. The elaborate masquerades at the French Academy constituted an important fixture in the Roman calendar. As director of the Academy, Vien organised the masque of 1748, the fabulous costumes of which are presented here, designed, drawn and etched by Vien himself. The costumes in the present suite are "a curious mixture of authentic Turkish habits and European invention" (Blackmer), showing the stock figures of the Turkish court liberally enhanced with elements of Vien's own concoction. The fantastical nature of the creations is a far cry from the sober neo-classical style with whi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le beau poète néo-latin, auteur de cette version est le célèbre chirurgien français Philippe Petit-Radel. Il naquit à Paris en 1749 et mourut dans la même ville en 1815. Il séjourna aux Indes de 1774 à 1777 et exerça comme chirurgien major à Surate. En 1782 il fut pourvu de la chaire de chirurgie à Paris. Le 10 août 1792, après avoir prononcé un discours en latin d'apparat, il s'éloigna brusquement et s'enfuit à Bordeaux. Enrôlé dans l'armée malgré lui, il s'échappa et s'embarqua pour l'île Bourbon en 1793 et de là partit pour l'Amérique. Il rentra en France en 1797 et fut appelé en 1798 à la chaire de clinique chirurgicale. Petit-Radel fut un latiniste distingué et militant. Il s'efforça toujours à rétablir dans les milieux médicaux l'ancien usage de parler latin. Outre ses importants travaux médicaux il nous a laissé divers livres latins De amoribus Pancharitiis et Zoroae. Poema erotico-didacticon (en 1798 et 1801); une traduction en vers latins des Hymnes de Callimaque ( 1810) et cette traduction de Longus qui parut chez Agasse à Paris en 1809.

Paris Counterfeit pubblicato nel gennaio 1749 (è stato stampato da Prault) L'originale, un badge rarità, datazione a partire da ottobre 1748. Questa violazione è caratterizzata da alcuni punti: riproduce gli stessi errori in paginazione la prefazione all'edizione originale. L'indirizzo ha solo R Barillot. Ci deve essere un foglio di errata alla fine del volume I, particolare che attesta il primo numero di questa seconda edizione.

Dos à nerfs orné de rouletes. Large frise d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches dorées. Frottements et épidermures. Trace de mouillure claire en marge sur les pages de garde. Livret de l'opera qui met en scène l'histoire de la conquête de la toison d'or par Jason et ses Argonautes. Une des pages liminaires cite le nom du compositeur : Giovanni Battista Mele, ou Juan Bautista Melle, puisque celui-ci exerça une partie de sa carrière en Espagne, auprès de Ferdinand VI. Cette particularité explique sans doute le recours au bilinguisme italien espagnol, l'opera pouvant ainsi être représenté dans les 2 langues. De même l'auteur du livret est un italien exerçant à la cour d'Espagne, le dernier représentant de la célèbre famille de Pic de la Mirandole, qui s'était marié à une Espagnole et qui résidait à Madrid.

Vignetta con impresa tipografica ai frontespizi; titoli in caratteri rossi e neri. Leg. mezza pelle coeva, titoli e tasselli colorati ai dorsi. Una macchia e un foro restaurato nelle ultime 4 pp. del secondo vol. con lesione di alcune parole di testo, ma buon es. (7656) Edizione in 3 voll. in-8° di questo testo celebre apparso a Ginevra alla fine del 1748, non riportata da Tchemerzine, che cita la seconda edizione apparsa nel 1749 coll'indicazione di Genève, Barillot (con una sola "r"), ed un'altra edizione in 3 voll. (sempre con una sola "r"), che non coincide però con la presente come impaginazione. La nostra edizione non è comunque da confondere con le numerose contraffazioni e ristampe (apparse per lo più nel 1750), solitamente alquanto dozzinali, mentre la presente è tipograficamente piuttosto bella. Da ricordare che il testo fu prontamente tradotto anche in italiano nel 1750. Sull'importanza di questo grande libro, fondamentale nella storia del pensiero politico e giuridico per aver posto le basi del principio della separazione dei poteri, e di considerevole rilievo anche nella storia del pensiero economico (soprattutto nei libri IV e V), cfr. P.M.M., n. 197: "In 1743 he began De l'ésprit des Loix. It took four years to write, and when it was finished almost all his friends advised him not to publish it. Montesquieu paid no attention and it was printed in Geneva in the autumn of 1748".

Edition originale, dans la traduction française par M.-A. Eidous, du premier ouvrage du philosophe initiateur de l'école écossaise, dans lequel Hutcheson développe la fameuse théorie du "sens moral". Précurseur de l'utilitarisme, cette oeuvre de philosophie morale et d'esthétique exerça une influence déterminante, notamment sur Hume, Kant et Adam Smith dont Hutcheson fut le professeur à Glasgow. Victor Cousin releva que la publication de cet ouvrage marquait "l'avènement de l'esthétique dans la philosophie européenne". (Conlon, 'Siècle des Lumières', 45:590. Jessop, p. 144). Petit défaut aux mors. Quelques petites épidermures. Exemplaire au chiffre couronné de Charles-Emmanuel III, duc de Savoie et roi de Sardaigne (1701-1773), dorés sur le plat supérieur. (Guigard, 'Nouvel armorial du bibliophile', I, p. 83 n°5). Despote éclairé, il introduisit d'importantes réformes de modernisation des institutions de ses Etats, entre autres l'organisation du cadastre, tache à laquelle fut employé Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Très bon exemplaire, frais, grand de marges.

Agostino Carattoni. 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.

London: R. Baldwin jun, 1749. Handel composed the music for the Royal Fireworks at the behest of King George II; the performance took place in London on April 27, 1749. "The 1749 oratorio season ended on 23 March with Messiah (not revived since 1745 but from now on to become an annual fixture), by which time preparations were well under way for a national celebration of the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle, the treaty ending the War of the Austrian Succession. The main public event was to be a fireworks display in Green Park, presented on an elaborate triumphal arch built by the stage designer Giovanni Servandoni. Handel produced an anthem (How Beautiful are the Feet, or 'The Anthem on the Peace') for the official service of thanksgiving at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, on 25 April, mainly based on music from Messiah and other works. His more significant contribution was 'The Music for the Royal Fireworks', to be played outdoors at the display. It took the form of an orchestral suite, beginning with an especially splendid overture. Handel's original intention (as confirmed by the indications in his autograph score) was that it should be performed by a massive wind band of 24 oboes, 9 horns, 9 trumpets, 12 bassoons and three sets of timpani, but before completing the score he decided to reduce the numbers and to double the woodwind with strings.

Handel composed the music for the Royal Fireworks at the behest of King George II; the performance took place in London on April 27, 1749. "The 1749 oratorio season ended on 23 March with Messiah (not revived since 1745 but from now on to become an annual fixture), by which time preparations were well under way for a national celebration of the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle, the treaty ending the War of the Austrian Succession. The main public event was to be a fireworks display in Green Park, presented on an elaborate triumphal arch built by the stage designer Giovanni Servandoni. Handel produced an anthem (How Beautiful are the Feet, or 'The Anthem on the Peace') for the official service of thanksgiving at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, on 25 April, mainly based on music from Messiah and other works. His more significant contribution was 'The Music for the Royal Fireworks', to be played outdoors at the display. It took the form of an orchestral suite, beginning with an especially splendid overture. Handel's original intention (as confirmed by the indications in his autograph score) was that it should be performed by a massive wind band of 24 oboes, 9 horns, 9 trumpets, 12 bassoons and three sets of timpani, but before completing the score he decided to reduce the numbers and to double the woodwind with strings. This caused annoyance, as (according to letters written by the Duke … [Click Below for Full Description]
