Si Bruneau, dans son "Traité des Criées", prétend que le président Séguier fit des notes sur les arrêts de Louët, et que ce fut ces notes que Julien Brodeau augmenta, Henrys, au contraire, fait grand cas de Brodeau : «Brodeau a joint l'usage à l'étude, et l'application du barreau à l'étude des bons livres ; on ne peut mieux employer le temps qu'à lire ce qu'il nous a laissé des remarques par lui faites ; si le recueil de M. Louët est de soi recommandable, il ne l'est pas moins par le commentaire ». (Camus & Dupin, "Bibliothèque choisie des livres de droit", 878). AGRÉABLE EXEMPLAIRE. NICE COPY.

L'Oeuvre fut écrite entre Paris et Bologne à partir de 1733, elle fut de nombreuses fois reprise, corrigée, perfectionnée aussi bien dans le contenu que dans le style. Ce texte est une tentative réussie d'exposer à un large public, surtout et principalement féminin, les découvertes d'Isaac Newton. Francesco Algarotti (1712-1764), natif de Venise, fut conseiller de Frédéric II de Prusse durant sept ans, ambassadeur spécial de ce dernier et également d'Auguste III de Saxe, dont il devint conseiller artistique, achetant de très nombreuses oeuvres d'art pour la Galerie d'Art de Dresde. Lors de ses séjours en France, il devint un intime de Maupertuis et fut très lié à Voltaire et à Madame du Châtelet (qui regrettera de ne pas être dédicataire de ce volume), à Londres il fréquenta Alexander Pope, parmi ses principales oeuvres, outre celle-ci, rappelons: ''Saggi sopra le belle arti'', "Viaggi di Russia'', ''Lettere sopra la pittura'', ''Il congresso di Citera''.

        "Lettera apologetica dell' esercitato Accademico della Crusca contenente la difesa del libro intitolato Lettere d'una Peruana, per rispetto alla supposizione de'quipu, scritta alla duchessa di s****e dalla medesima fatta pubblicare"

      Gennaro Morelli Napoli: [Gennaro Morelli]. 1750. "First edition, 4to, pp. [14], 320, [14]; text partially in black letter, engraved vignette (device of the Accademia della Crusca) on title page printed in sanguine, title page otherwise printed in 4 colors; 3 hand- colored folding plates of the quipus (1 also printed in red and green); engraved ititials and headpieces; contemporary full mottled calf, gilt spine, red morocco label, modern quarter brown morocco clamshell box with gilt spine, red morocco label. Sabin 40560: ""This letter from a learned academician of the Della Crusca, contains a defense of Madame de Grafigny, ""Letters from a Peruvian Princess,"" published in 1747, wherein the author speakls of the extensive use of the quipus by the Peruvians."" ""The mysterious science of the quipus ... supplied the Peruvians with the means of communicating their ideas to one another, and of transmitting them to future generations. ""The quipu was a cord about two feet long, composed of different colored threads tightly twisted together, from which a quantity of small threads were suspended in the manner of a fringe. The threads were of different colors and were tied into knots. The word quipu, indeed, signifies a knot. The colors denoted sensible objects; as, for instance, white represented silver, and yellow, gold. They sometimes stood for abstract ideas. Thus white signified peace, and red, war. But the quipus were chiefly used for arithemetical purposes. The knots served instead of ciphers, and could be combined in such a manner as to represent numbers to any amount they required. By means of these they went through their calculatrions with great rapidity, and the Spaniards who first visited the country bear testimony to their accuracy. ""Officers were established in each of the districts, who, under the title of quipucamayus, or 'keepers of the quipus,' were required to furnish the government with information on various important matters. One had charge of the revenues, reported the quantity of raw material distributed among the laborers, the quality and quantity of the fabrics made from it, and the amount of stores, of various kinds, paid into the royal magazines. Another exhibited the register of births and deaths, the marriages, the number of those qualified to bear arms, and the like details in reference to the population of the kingdom. These returns were annually forwarded to the capital, where they wre submitted to the inspection of officers acquainted with the art of deciphering these mystic records. The government was thus provided with a valuable mass of statistical information, and the skeins of many-colored threads, collected and carefully preserved, consittuted what might be called the national archives"" (Prescott, Conquest of Peru, I, 118-9). Some wear along the upper joint, old ink inscription partially eradicated from the bottom margin of the title page, mild and occasional spotting; a very good copy of a rare book. "

        Scienza della Natura Generale

      Venice,: Battista Recurti, 1750.. Two volumes, quarto, with a total of 62 plates (including three letterpress tables numbered in series), a fine set in contemporary full vellum with gilt lettered labels. Well-preserved compendium of articles on science and technology, including a splendid array of engraved plates illustrating many different aspects of eighteenth-century science. 'Illustrations of particular interest are those of units of measurement, the pendulum, electrostatical machines, the pointing of mortar, the compressed air-gun, the refraction of light rays, and chyliferous vessels in man. In short Scienza della Natura presents a complete and ordered picture of the state of scientific knowledge in its time' (DSB).Giovanni della Torre (c. 1710-1782) was a prominent teacher of natural science and physics at Italian universities. A man of varied pursuits, della Torre is remembered for his improvement and simplification of the microscope, and as the author of a later separately published book on volcanoes derived from personal observations of Mount Vesuvius in the Bay of Naples.Written during a period when the teaching of science in Italian institutions was increasingly influenced by Newtonian physics, these books combine the older discursive style of natural philosophy with new rigorous experimental approaches. In Scienza della Natura Generale we encounter a curious hybrid of ancient learning within an enthusiastic, and highly rational, environment of experimental science.The scope of these books is considerable, encompassing physics and the natural sciences, as well as anatomy and other subjects. This diversity of subject material is reflected in the large number of engraved plates. Illustrations include hydraulic and pneumatic experiments, vacuum pumps and chambers, centrifuges, and similar physics projects. The design of microscopes, telescopes, and other optical instruments are likewise illustrated in some detail over several plates (interestingly, the anatomical plates include microscopic views of cells and alveoli of the lungs). One curious engraving presents an innovative diving bell suspended from a sailing vessel, presumably for collecting treasure and salvage from the seafloor.Poggendorff, II, 1118; Riccardi, I, 541; Roller-Goodman, II, 508.

        THE NATURAL HISTORY OF BARBADOS. In Ten Books

      London: Printed for the Author 1750. . 1st Ed. Folio. 9 x 14 inches. [iv] + [x] Subscribers + [ii] + vii + 314pp. + [viii] Glossary + [viii] Index + [iv] Addenda. Folding frontis. map by Thos. Jefferys, 30 copper plates each with a coat of arms of a Subscriber, dec. initial letters head and tail pieces, engraved chapter headings. Some light browning, without front f.e.p., contemporary speckled calf boards, some loss to edges, C20th reback in modern leather with gilt lettered title label to spine. Our copy slightly smaller than other Large Paper Copies, but with a slip containing errata pasted to verso of p. vii (as called for in the Large Paper issue, and without the final errata leaf found in the ordinary paper issue).& ESTC T147028 and T147029 (Large paper copy); Sabin 33582 ‘Also on Large Paper ... The book is handsomely printed and the plates are finely executed from drawings by Ehret ...’ Nissen 950; Casey Woods p.393;& Including many interesting obvservations, from the Portuguese, the name Barbados means bearded, and probably describes the fig tree filament growth into the soil. In addition to the fig tree, Hughes describes the many uses, including medicinal, of the vegetation found on the island. One such example is the first description of the grapefruit which Hughes called "The Forbidden Fruit". The term yellow fever was also coined by Hughes in this volume, although the association with the mosquito came much later. The cartographer for his book was Thomas Jefferys, the map-maker to George III, and his map of Barbados is shown here. The illustrations were created by Georg Dionysius Ehret, who was renowned for his botanical drawings. Hughes was also the first to describe many of the sites around the island from an archaeological perspective. Portions of Hughes' 1750 publication were incorporated into a book on diseases of the West Indies. Grainger and Moseley reference Hughes' work especially as it applies to symptoms and treatment of diseases he observed while in Barbados. The first publication of scientific research conducted on location in Barbados, it was praised by Carl Linnaeus,& Griffith Hughes (bap. 1707, d. 1758?), Church of England clergyman and naturalist. ODNB ‘... From 1736 to 1748, and possibly nominally into the 1750s, he was rector of St Lucy's, Barbados. Each tenure was marked by differences of opinion with the congregation and also coincided with the preparation of a book for publication. For the Welsh immigrants of Pennsylvania, Hughes produced in 1735 an edition of Welsh devotional meditations, a reprint with additions of John Morgan's Myfyrdodau bucheddol ar y pedwar peth diweddaf, originally published in London in 1714. This was the fourth Welsh book published in America. In Barbados, Hughes developed the idea of publishing a book on the island's natural history. In 1743 he visited London with the intention of promoting this work and ingratiated himself with the leading scientists of the day, men such as Sir Hans Sloane and Martin Folkes. Before returning home, he had arranged for the leading artist George Dionysius Ehret to prepare plates for his book. Because his plan was both interesting and ambitious, on Hughes's return to England in 1748 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society as well as receiving his BA and MA degrees from his old college.

        Carta geografica dell'Isola di Sardegna

      Giovanni Battista Albrizzi Venice: Giovanni Battista Albrizzi, 1750. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 13" x 16.75". This exquisite map of Sardinia has two country vignette cartouches that depict the island's idyllic lifestyle. Published circa 1750, the map dates to the period when the island was ruled by the House of Savoy. It features pictorial depictions of mountains, forts, and prominent churches, and cities and rivers are also labeled. The title cartouche in the lower left shows a man resting against a set of rocks on which the title is carved, with his dog looking out ahead of him. An additional cartouche in the upper right shows women taking water from a well and pushing a wheelbarrow of produce, along with two deer. The map is in excellent condition. Narrow margins. Giovanni Battista Albrizzi (1698-1777) was a prominent Venetian publisher of books and maps. He inherited his business from his father and was part of a family active in publishing and bookselling in Venice for 150 years. In addition, he edited a weekly bulletin, Novelle della Repubblica delle Lettere, which reviewed and commented on books published throughout Europe. This elegant map demonstrates Albrizzi's skill and eye for culture.
