        Prospettiva della prima macchina de' fuochi d'artificio rappresentante un Arco Trionfale incendiata essa macchina d'ordine di Sua Ecc. Il Sig. P.npe Don Fanrizio Colonna à presentare il Censo e la Chiea la vigilia dei SS. Pietro e Paolo Apostoli

      1751 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1751. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva. Il foglio era applicato su tela ed in cornice; dopo un sapiente lavoro di restauro è stato riportato alla condizione originale. Presenta al verso tracce di colla, al recto delle leggere abrasioni e delle minime ossidazioni, strappi restaurati. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo. Etching, printed on contemporary laid paper, small tear perfectly repaired, otherwise in good condition The engravings have been laid on canvas and framed; after a long work to repair them, they now look almost perfect. Signs of glue on verso, on recto signs of abrasions and oxidations. Chinea literally means white female mule, the one the Kings of Spain offered every year to the Pope as a solemn payment of the income of the Kingdome of Naples. The horse, duly trained, knelt in front of the Pope and to offer him a silver vase with money inside, that was fastened to its saddle. The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as pe [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1751. Fielding on Crime and the Evils of Gin Fielding, Henry [1707-1754]. An Enquiry Into the Causes of the Late Increase of Robbers, &c. With Some Proposals for Remedying this Growing Evil. In Which the Present Reigning Vices are Impartially Exposed; And the Laws that Relate to the Provision for the Poor, And to the Punishment of Felons are Largely and Freely Examined. By Henry Fielding, Esq; Barrister at Law, and One of His Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the County of Middlesex, And for the City and Liberty of Westminster. London: Printed for A. Millar, 1751. xxxii, 203, [1] pp. With a half-title. 12mo (6-1/2" x 3-3/4"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt-tooled raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Some toning to text, light foxing in a few places, light marks in pencil to margins in a few places. A handsome copy. * Second edition, published the same year as the first. This tract by the great writer draws attention to the social evils of the time, gin consumption among the poor especially. An influential piece, it inspired a bill to restrict gin production and Hogarth's famous engraving, "Gin Lane." The advertisement on the last page, possibly written by Sir John Fielding, is headed "To the Public." It advertises a domestic employment agency that offers servants free of "the rude Behaviour and Insolence of Servants of all Kinds" that has "become a general complaint." As mentioned above, two editions were published in 1751 by Millar. There is also an imprint of the first edition published in Dublin in 1751 by M. Faulkner. English Short-Title Catalogue T89871.

Delices Physiques Choisies, ou choix de tout ce que les trois règnes de la nature renferment de plus digne des recherches d'un amateur curieux, pour en former un Cabinet Choisi de Curiositez Naturelles.

      Nürnberg, Knorr (Erben), (1751-)1766-1767. 2 volumes (bound in one). Imperial-folio (355 x 505mm). pp. (26), viii, 132; pp. (4), xx, 144, with one charmingly handcoloured engraved frontispiece and 91 large beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary full calf, gilt lines on covers, spine with 6 raised bands, gilt lettering and ornaments (spine has been skilfully rebacked at a later date). First edition and large paper copy of one of the most sumptuously illustrated German natural history books. Georg Wolfgang Knorr (1705-1761) was a Nuremberg engraver, art dealer, and scientist. He published some of the most beautiful natural history works to appear in the south of Germany. In the 18th century Nuremberg became the center for producing superbly illustrated natural history books. This was principally due to the stimulus of Dr. Trew, a wealthy Nuremberg physician who assembled a number of young artists and scientists around him, such as Ehret, the most gifted botanical artist of second half of the 18th century. Dr. Trew owned a large collection of natural history specimens, and his 'Wunderkammer' was admired by numerous foreign visitors. Most of the natural history specimens depicted in the present book derive from his collection as is mentionned at the bottom of each plate. The splendidly engraved and handcoloured plates depict mineralogical and zoological matter as follows: corals 15 plates; shells 7; butterflies 6; urchins 4; minerals 6; crustacea & spiders 7; starfishes 4; fishes 9; birds 7, quadrupeds 14; reptiles & amphibians 12. The animals and minerals are very well arranged on each plate and often cover the plate fully. "Das gilt vor allem für Knorrs prächtigstes Werk, die 'Deliciae naturae selectae', in dem er versuchte, die schönsten und seltensten Exemplare aus den drei Reichen der Natur abzubilden… Die meisterhaften Kolorierungen der Kupferstiche in Knorrs Publikationen sind besonderes bestechend… Die Nürnberger Illuministen und Illumistinnen, die auch international einen sehr guten Ruf hatten, sparten nicht mit guten Farben" (H. Ludwig, Nürnberger naturgeschichtliche Malerei im 17. Und 18. Jahrhundert pp.172-3). The text is in German and French.//Provenance: Armorial bookplate with crown and monogram EK and 'Loyal en tout'.//Nissen ZBI, 2227.

Folio. With title-page within woodcut border, displaying 8 scenes of Galen curing patients or dissecting an animal, 4 woodcut illustrations in text and numerous woodcut initials and headpieces. Contemporary vellum.

      - Durling 1751; S. Fortuna, The Latin editions of Galen’s Opera omnia (1490-1625) and their Prefaces (2012) pp. 399-402; cf. Hagelin, Rare and important medical books, pp.12-15. One of the seven volumes comprising the collected works of the Greek physician Galen, published under the general title Opera omnia nunc primum in unum corpus redacta in the years 1541-1542. "There is no name more illustrious in the whole history of medicine than that of Galen Written in Greek, this Galenic treasure reached the Latin Western World only through Arabic translations" (Hagelin). The present volume mainly deals with the anatomy of the human body: the nerves, the muscles, the veins etc. All the volumes were edited by the physician Agostino Gadaldini (1515-1575) from Modena. When the present edition appeared, it was presented as the "new translation", based mostly on earlier humanist translations of Greek manuscripts, but also with many new translations and commentaries by well-known physicians of that day. "It is interesting to note one of Gadaldini's collaborators was Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564). He revised the translations of Galen's anatomical works, in particular the version of Anatomical procedures" (Fortuna), which can be found in the present volume. The present copy is frequently annotated in the margins in an early hand.With bookplate and owner's inscription. Binding worn, spine heavily damaged on top and bottom, wormholes. With a large waterstain affecting the title-page and some occasional smaller waterstains and spots. Internally in good condition.

Das "Gärtnerlexicon" kann als eines der wichtigsten Gartenbücher überhaupt bezeichnet werden. Es half vielen, ja noch im französischen Gartenstil ausgebildeten, Gärtnern die vielfältigen Anforderungen der Auftraggeber nach Einrichtung eines nach der neuesten englischen Mode gestalteten "Landschaftsgartens" zu erfüllen. Seine Verwendung ist bei zahlreichen Gartenanlagen nachweisbar, so z.B. in den Schloßgärten von Herrenhausen und Karlsruhe. Linné selber meinte, dass es eigentlich den Titel eines botanische Lexikons verdiente. "Es ist das einzige größere systematische Werk, dass auch nach Linné seine Geltung behauptete. Es ergänzte Linnés kurze Diagnosen in praktisch brauchbarer Weise". (Jessen 1864). "This celebrated dictionary by a writer known for his knowledge of botany, and for his skill in gardening, proved a success from the start. Many editions appeared in (England) and versions were published in Holland, France, and Germany." (Henney II,215).

      London: J. and P. Knapton,, 1751. Several of them now first printed. Revised and published, with an Account of the Life of the Author, By Thomas Birch. 2 volumes, octavo (206 x 118 mm). Contemporary brown full calf, red and green morocco labels to spine, compartments gilt ruled, supralibros to front and rear boards, plain cream endpapers, top edge brown. Frontispiece to Volume 1. Library labels to front pastedowns, advertisement slip for the 1754 edition tipped-in to front pastedown of Volume 1, some light marginalia throughout. The pagination of sheet N, Volume 2, is mistakenly duplicated from sheet M. Wear and rubbing to extremities, creases and splitting to spine joints, spill-burns to front board of Volume 1 and rear board of Volume 2, endpapers browned from the turn-ins, front free endpaper of Volume 1 partially loose, some creasing to tips, a little foxing throughout, heavier creasing to p. 575 of Volume 2, a very good set. First edition. This, Cockburn's complete works, most notably includes the first appearance in print of her third defence of Locke, "A Vindication of Mr Locke's Christian Principles, from the injurious Imputations of Dr. Holdsworth", which was composed in 1726 but failed to find a publisher at the time. Published posthumously and by subscription, this edition also contains all her important philosophical writing, including her first and second Lockean defences of 1702 and 1726; the first biography of Cockburn, written by Thomas Birch, her editor; and the lesser known works such as her letters, poetry, and her early play, Fatal Friendship (1698). The supralibros are that of the Society of Writers to Her Majesty's Signet, an association of Scottish lawyers and one of the oldest professional bodies in the world. Their private library, part of the Parliament house complex in Edinburgh, opened in 1822; King George IV described it as "the finest drawing room in Europe". This is a rare edition, commercially scarce.

By Henry Fielding, Esq; Barrister at Law, and One of His Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the County of Middlesex, And for the City and Liberty of Westminster. London: Printed for A.

(moulin à sucre, poissons et crocodile, fruits et plantes dont le bananier, le caféier, le piment), pl. veau moucheté époque, dos lisse orné., qq. très rares rousseurs, et un mors inf. lég. fendu sinon bon exemplaire. Traduction généralement considérée comme celle dit livre de Sir Hans Sloane sur la Jamaïque. Ce naturaliste britannique, accompagna l'expédition du duc d'Albermale dans les Antilles en 1687. Il étudia les ressources naturelles de l'île : politique, économie, commerce, histoire naturelle, agriculture (banane, café, piments, poissons...), et ramena 800 espèces de plantes. En fait il s'agirait plutôt de la traduction de "A New and Exact Account of Jamaica" ouvrage publié en 1739 à Edinburgh et rédigé par Charles Leslie (cf. British Libr. et Conlon). ¶ Chadenat 4668 "Rare récit de ce voyage en Jamaïque, dans lequel on trouve des renseignements intéressants sur cette île, notamment en ce qui concerne sa politique et son histoire naturelle." - Sabin 35585 et 82167 - Boucher de La Richarderie VI, 186 "Le voyage de Sloane .. est une mine féconde pour les naturalistes, surtout quant à la partie de la botanique. L'étendue que Sloane a donnée à ses recherches sur les plantes, et l'exactitude des descriptions qu'il en a faites, donnent un grand prix à cet ouvrage" - Leclerc 721

Early but 6th or so edition. vii, [i], 141, [7, index] pp. 1 vols. Small 8vo. Henry Bracken (1687-1764) began his practice as a physician and surgeon and, as a horse owner and patron of the turf, turned his hand to veterinary science in an era when most practitioners were abyssmally ignorant. He was among the first to diagnose equine ailments, rather than simply treating the symptoms. "No previous writer had drawn attention to the matter, while among the general public an entire absence of education was apparently regarded as the first essential of a veterinary practitioner." (Frederick Smith, The Early History of Veterinary Literature.) The book, first published in 1738, went into a dozen English printings, and at least three in the United States, all of them scarce.

The author, a famous Portuguese soldier, was colonel of an infantry regiment in Rio de Janeiro, and died there in 1751. He was one of the officers belonging to the entourage of Gomes Freire, and dedicated the Capitão de Infantaria to him. There are long letters of Ribeiro Coutinho in praise of Alpoym in the Exame de Bombeiros, and the Exame de Artilheiros. This work is sumptuously printed and illustrated, and is quite rare».
