        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.

        De l'Esprit des Loix. Nouvelle Edition, Avec les dernieres Corrections & Illustrations de l'Auteur

      A Edinbourg, Chez G. Hamilton & J. Balfour, 1750. FIRST SCOTTISH EDITION. 2 volumes. 8vo (in 4s), 198 x 112 mms., pp. xxviii, 458 [459 errata, 460 blank]; xvii [xviii errata], 487 [488 blank], contemporary lightly polished, spine gilt in compartments with curious ichthyological ornament (sort of a sea creature or mermaid with its tail curved towards its head), red leather label; very slight rubbing of joints, but a fine set, with the later bookplate of Sir James Miller Bart of Manderston, probably the racehorse owner (1864 - 1906). Hamilton and Balfour had published a few minor French works in translation before 1750, but this was their first full-length publication in French. They issued subscription proposals for this edition, claiming, not unusually for 18th century publishers, that their edition would be more correct than those published in London and Geneva, where it was first published in 1748. The subscription proposals were announced in the Caledonian Mercury on 1 June 1749: "As the publishers of this work are to spare neither Expence nor Pains, in having it elegantly printed, and carefully corrected from the Errors both of the Geneva and London Editions, and at as cheap, if not a cheaper Price than either: It is hoped that all Lovers of Learning, and Well-wishers to their Country, will rather chuse to encourage this first Attempt of reprinting a valuable foreign Book among ourselves, than any other Edition...." One of those who expressed enthusiasm for the project was David Hume, who let Montesquieu know what was happening. Montesquieu sent Hume many corrections, which Hume passed on to the publishers, when the work was almost completed. Four leaves in each volume were cancelled and replaced with new leaves, though errors still remained. Hamilton and Balfour later issued an English translation of the two chapters most likely to interest British readers, Two Chapters of A celebrated French work, Intitled, De l'Esprit des Loix, Translated into English, one, Treating Of the Constitution of England; another, Of the Character and Manners which result from this Constitution. Hamilton and Balfour offered this for 10s. sewed, or 12s bound, and this appears to be a publisher's binding. ESTC T121684 locates 11 copies in UK libraries, one in Europe, one in Australia, and UCLA, Kansas, Penn, and Trinity College in North America.

Octavo. 112, 117-123 miss-pagination as text continuous. Handsome period style brown gilt tooled half calf with marbled boards and red gilt morocco label. A very good copy. The anonymous author, who most likely was a member of the East-India Company at Madras, thoroughly describes the loss of Madras and Fort St. George to the French fleet under command of Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais during the War for the Austrian Succession in 1746. The city and the fortress were very important for the Company and the author witnessed the plundering and destruction of the city and its neighbourhoods by the French (Oxford DNB). The author reproduces the text of the letters between French and English authorities (the last president of Madras Nicolas Morse and Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais and his superior, the governor of French fort in India Pondicherry Joseph François Dupleix), the text of the Capitulation of Fort St. George and Town of Madras, numerous treaties and Commissions, instructions, authentic diary of the events of the Battle and French rule etc. Finally the author presents the account of the Company's losses and expenses which resulted from the loss of Madras.

        TUTTI I TRIONFI CARRI, MASCHERATE O CANTI CARNASCIALESCHI ANDATI PER FIRENZE DAL TEMPO DEL MAGNIFICO LORENZO DE' MEDICI FINO ALL' ANNO 1559. In questa seconda Edizione corretti, con diversi MSS. collazionati, delle loro varie lezioni arricchiti, notabilmente accresciuti, E co' RITRATTI DI CIASCUN POETA ADORNATI

      Cosmopoli [Lucca]: [Pel Benedini], 1750. Second Edition. Hardcover. No endpapers present; offsetting to text from portraits. Near Fine. Two quarto (6-1/2" x 9") volumes; [1]-256; [257]-594 pages. Illustrated with two engraved allegorical pictorial title pages and 44 inserted portraits engraved after contemporary prints, paintings, and medallions. Among those depicted are Lorenzo Medici and Niccolo Machiavelli, both of whom contribute songs to this collection. A very interesting copy for several reasons. First, it exists in an unbound state with modern board covers and appears never to have been bound previously. On the half-title page of each volume in early ink is written a statement in Italian regarding one F. Enrico of Bologna applying for license. This copy matches the second impression point of Brunet, V, columns 988-989, regarding the spelling of "Mostreremvelo," but the information regarding signatures OO and PP and the errata does not match either the first or second impression. Graesse, VI: II, page 217, which essentially repeats in distilled form the information in Brunet. A collection of songs for carnivals, processions, masquerades, etc., first published in 1559. Grazzini, the compiler, was better known as "Il Lasca, Academico Fiorentino," a quarrelsome scholar regarded as one of the masters of Italian prose.

        A Naval Expositor,

      London: printed by E. Owen, and engraved by Paul Fourdrinier,, 1750. Shewing and Explaining the Words and Terms of Art belonging to the Parts, Qualities, and Proportions of Building, Rigging, Furnishing, Fitting a Ship for Sea. Names of each particular Part of a new Ship, as they are put together (in a progressive Manner) for Frameing and Finishing the Structure Building on the Stocks. Quarto (273 × 210 mm) contemporary calf, rebacked with new red morocco label, edges sprinkled red. Fully-engraved title within elaborate rococo border, letterpress printed text and each page with engraved terms and illustrations in outer margin, in all more than 300 marginal engravings, and 3 larger engravings in the text. With list of subscribers and dedication leaf. Boards a little worn, front hinge re-enforced with linen, occasional leaf spotted, overall a very good copy. First edition of this beautifully produced dictionary of naval terminology, giving a wonderful insight into the technicalities of eighteenth-century seamanship. The terms to be defined are themselves engraved, in many cases accompanied by an intricately engraved thumbnail sketch of the item in question. A more thorough explanation is provided in letterpress. Blanckley gives details of the whole gamut of naval terminology, not just parts and types of ships and boats, their construction, rigging, and outfitting, but also maintenance tools, provisions, and naval terms and commands. A table at the beginning outlines the order in which the different sections and parts of a new ship are put together, together with references as to where these parts and materials are explained in the dictionary. "Regarded by Röding as the best English book of its kind before Falconer, 1769." (Craig), Blanckley is one of the most visually attractive books in the field; truly a superb dictionary and an accomplished piece of bookmaking. The four-page list of subscribers provides a veritable roll call of England's naval notables of the time, and the detailed engravings by Paul Fourdrinier (d.1758) are particularly splendid; the French engraver had been a pupil of Bernard Picart in Amsterdam before setting up a workshop in London in 1720, where he concentrated on engraving portraits and book illustrations, particularly for architectural works. Inscription of of W. H. M. Daniell to the front pastedown recording the gift of the book from Howard Marquand "Taunton about 1890". Daniell rose to the rank of commander RN and was serving on board the Camperdown at the time of her disastrous collision with HMS Victoria off Tripoli in 1893.

        A New Law-Dictionary...The Sixth Edition. London, 1750

      1750. Jacob, Giles [1686-1744]. [Holt, Sir John (1642-1710)]. A New Law-Dictionary: Containing, The Interpretation and Definition of Words and Terms used in the Law; and Also the Whole Law, and the Practice Thereof, Under All the Heads and Titles of the Same. Together With Such Informations Relating Thereto, as Explain the History and Antiquity of the Law, and Our Manners, Customs, and Original Government. Collected and Abstracted From All Dictionaries, Abridgments, Institutes, Reports, Year-Books, Charters, Registers, Chronicles, and Histories, Published to This Time. And Fitted for the Use of Barristers, Students, and Practisers of the Law, Members of Parliament, and Other Gentlemen, Justices of the Peaces, Clergymen, &c. The Law-Proceedings Being Done Into English, with Great Additions and Improvements to this Time. To Which is Annexed, a Table of References to All the Arguments and Resolutions of the Lord Chief Justice Holt; in the Several Volumes of the Reports. London: Printed by Henry Lintot, 1750. Unpaginated. Printed in double columns. Folio (14" x 9"). Contemporary calf, raised bands, blind-stamped fillets to boards, later lettering piece. Wear to edges and corners, scuffs to boards and backstrip, chipping to spine ends, boards partially detached but secure. Early owner inscription to front free endpaper, another to title page, interior otherwise clean and fresh. * Sixth edition. According to Cowley, the New Law-Dictionary (First edition, 1729) was both Jacob's masterpiece and "an entirely new departure in legal literature" that provided a model for several subsequent efforts. In contrast to earlier works, each entry summarizes all of the laws relating to the subject and offers extensive interpretive commentary. Jacob was also careful to omit obsolete terms. It was recognized almost immediately that Jacob had created a highly useful legal encyclopedia that was both more detailed and concise than any other abridgment of the period. An extremely popular work that went through twelve editions by 1800, it offers unparalleled insights into Anglo-American law during the eighteenth century.
