La storia di Tom Jones, trovatello ha è senza dubbio uno dei grandi capolavori della letteratura inglese. Esso sancisce il picaresco inglese con un brillante mix di vari generi, quella dei costumi del romanzo, quella del romanzo sentimentale e quella di una prosa satirica tipicamente inglese incontrato in Swift. Fielding aveva precedentemente dato Joseph Andrews, una sorta di satira del romanzo di moda sentimentale, Pamela Richardson, e Storia di Jonathan Wild, e che era di due colpi maestri, ha firmato con Tom Jones implementato un multiplo, profonda, anche se ancora nella stessa vena come Joseph Andrews; la sua influenza sarà grande in Francia, e inalterabile in Inghilterra, anche in Thomas Hardy e George Elliot.

Il consacre le genre picaresque anglais avec un mélange éclatant de divers genres , celui du roman de moeurs, celui du roman sentimental et celui d'une prose satirique typiquement anglaise que l'on rencontre chez Swift. Fielding avait auparavant donné Joseph Andrews, sorte de satire du roman sentimental à la mode ; Pamela de Richardson, et Histoire de Jonathan Wild, et c'était déjà deux coups de maître, il signe avec Tom Jones une oeuvre multiple, profonde, bien que toujours dans la même veine que Joseph Andrews ; son influence sera grande en France, et inaltérable en Angleterre, jusque chez Thomas Hardy et George Elliot.

        La scusa. Cantata.

      Manuscript in Italian on paper, undated [c1750] - 2 pages of text penned in brown ink, recto & verso on 1st part of a folding leaf (2nd part blank) edges gilt, probably from an album. A manuscript of La scusa, a cantata, by the popular lyrical and romantic poet and librettist Metastasio, (1698-1782), copied by his friend and correspondent, the influential poet and essayist, Francesco Algarotti (1712-64). Metastasio, born Pietro Antonio Domenico Trapassi , was one of the most famous librettists of the period. His libretto ‘La Clemenza di Tito’ inspired Mozart to compose an opera of the same name. Algarotti must have copied the cantata, as no printed version was available until 1780, when it was published with music by Baldassare Galuppi. The word ‘Cantata’ with contemporary smudge, otherwise in excellent condition. cf Brunelli II, 709.

        SALZBURG: VUE DE LA FORTERESSE DE HOHEN-SALZBOURG.

      [Salzburg, probably late ]. 1750 - Ink and water-colour in grisaille, on paper, originally mounted on a larger sheet of paper (slightly age-toned and stained, a small worm hole in the image, soft folds, small tears in margins, otherwise in a good condition), 25,5 x 36 cm (10 x 14.2 inches) A drawing shows the Hohensalzburg Castle (Festung Hohensalzburg), one of the landmarks of Salzburg as it looked like in the mid 18th century, after it was last rebuilt in 1681 under Max Gandolf von Kuenburg (1668–1687). The drawing was made by Ferdinand von Attems, a noble family from Gorizia. A signature Le Comte Ferdinand d'Attems de Gorice, page d'honneur du Prince regnant de Saltzbourg (Honorary squire to the Prince of Salzburg) helps dating the view to the mid or late 1750s, when Attems was in his early teens, serving as a squire, probably to Sigismund Graf von Schrattenbach (1698 – 1771), Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg from 1753 to 1771. The function of squires was given to boys from noble families between ages circa 7-14 years. Ferdinand Maria Count von Attems (1746 – 1820), born in Graz, was a son of Ignaz von Attems and Maria Josepha, née Khuen. After successful career in the politics, among other he was a governor of Styria, he dedicated himself to art and collecting. In 1811 he became the first curator of the art museum Joanneum in Graz, and later the sponsor of Drawing Academy and Picture Gallery in Graz, to which he donated circa 160 paintings from his collection.

        [Print] Vue du Gros Temple dans la Ville de Mexico

      Augsburg: Academie Imperial d'Empire des Arts libereaux, None (1750-1800). Print measuring 12 x 16 inches (30.5 x 42 cm). View of the Great Temple in the City of Mexico. Imaginary view of what the great teocalli of the Aztecs would have looked like at the time of Cortez' arrival. Surrounding houses, gardens, trees, pedestrians, a horse even, a lake in the background -- all betray the engraver's European experience, though interesting in itself. It is quite rare, no copy having appeared at auction and only one copy (Bibloteque Nacionale_ recorded on OCLC, though as no date or dimensions are given for that copy, one can not be certain. Vividly hand-colored (appears to be contemporaneous with the print), with the title in reverse, which gives it away as a vue d'optique, i.e. an image meant to be viewed in a special optical device, the zograscope, which would render a kind of three-dimensional effect. The legend at the bottom reads, in French and German: "Vue de gros temple dan la ville de Mexico, le quel est voue a l'Idole Vizlibuzli, il est batit a la facon des Pyramides Egyptiennes, et au dehors l'escalier depuis le bas jusqu'en haut de 130 degres, chacune de 8 Pouces, et taille superbement d'une excellente Pierre, et en haut il y a deux Autelles, ou les pretres font leurs offrandes."

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.

It was the standard work on surgery in the eighteenth century, becoming one of the most translated, most used, and most respected texts ever written, and was still as a standard text at Vienna as late as 1838." (Heirs of Hippocrates)."Comme le petit ouvrage de Garengeot, le traité de chirurgie de l’Allemand Lorenz Heister fait revivre pour nous quelques opérations mais les scènes y sont plus rudes et nous paraissent même quelque peu horrifiantes. La première édition allemande fut faite en 1718 à Nuremberg et fut suivie de nombreuses éditions tant allemandes que latines, espagnoles, anglaises et françaises. [ L’ouvrage est orné de 40 planches en taille-douce représentant] "les instruments les plus approuvés et les plus utiles, le manuel des opérations, les appareils, et les bandages", qui gardent encore aujourd’hui tout leur intérêt documentaire. Dans les scènes d’opérations, des chirurgiens portant perruques à boucles et costumes de la fin du règne de Louis XIV pratiquent tour à tour des amputations de bras et de jambe, opèrent des cataractes, procèdent à la taille de la pierre pour les enfants dans la position préconisée par Celse et Tolet pour ce genre d’opération, à la taille de la pierre pour les adultes dans la manière employée par Alghisi qui, dit l’auteur, diffère à certains égards de celle de Tolet."

        Nieuw natuurlyk toverboek, of alle de kunststukken van den ridder Pinetti de Mercy, tot navolging gemaklyk gemaakt en uitgelegd.Amsterdam, Gerbrand Roos, 1817. 8vo. Modern paper wrappers.

      - Cf. Cat. Van Rijn 1184 (other work on Pinetti); not in NCC; Saalmink; WorldCat. Very rare first edition of the Dutch translation of a description and explanation of 70 conjuring and magic acts performed by the famous Italian magician Jean Joseph Pinetti Willedall de Merci (1750-ca. 1803). The German philosopher and mathematician Johann Wilhelm Andreas Kosmann (1761-1804) based his explanations on Pinetti's own work Amusemens physiques (Paris, 1784), and on Henri Decremps's Magie blanche devoilée (Paris, 1789). All the tricks are described in great detail, they often including the voluntary help of persons chosen from the public, and are subsequently explained by the author. The original German was first published at Berlin in 1799. Kosmann mentioned he had refrained from publishing the book until Pinetti had finished his shows at Berlin. Still, the book raised Pinetti's anger, who took the matter to court, accusing the author of insult. Some minor foxing, some leaves creased, otherwise in good condition, wholly untrimmed.
