        Veduta di Piazza Navona sopra le rovine del Circo Agonale

      "- SECONDO STATO DI SETTE - Acquaforte e bulino, 1751, firmata in lastra. Esemplare della contemporanea tiratura romana, avanti l'indirizzo deegli editori Bouchard e Gravier. Il primo stato della lastra è in realtà una prova di stampa (ante litteram) dell'opera; pertanto questa tiratura può essere considerata virtualmente come la prima, ed è databile al 1751. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ""Giglio nel cerchio"", con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa veduta di Piazza Navona mostra la chiesa di Sant'Agnese ad Agone a sinistra e al la Fontana dei Quattro fiumi di Bernini. Della serie Vedute di Roma. L'opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780." "- SECOND STATE, OF SEVEN - The very rare second state of seven, before the address of the publisher Bouchrd & Graviere. Etching and engraving, 1751, signed on plate. Example from the contemporary Roman Edition. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark ""encircled fleur de lys"", with margins, good condition. Taken from Vedute di Roma; the whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building. Print from Piranesi's famous series ""Vedute di Roma"", 1748-78. These early impressions, printed in Piranesi's lifetime, on heavy Italian paper and before the plates became worn, are particularly prized for their rich, black, deeply-etched line. This view of Piazza Navona shows the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone to the left and, as the centrepiece to this great baroque space, Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers." Hind n. 16, II/VI; Focillon 806.

        Cours de physique expérimentale

      1751 - 2 forts vol. in-4, Paris, J. Rollin & C.A. Jombert, 1751, in-4, 2 forts vol. in-4, [2]-XII-[2]-503-[1 bl.]-4 pp, 32 pl. + [4]-IV-636-6 pp, 46 pl, veau marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés, tranches rouges, Première édition française, très rare ; la traduction est du père Pezenas, qui fut aussi le traducteur du Traité d'optique de Smith. Ce traité de physique, imprimé d'abord à Londres en 1725-1727, fut entièrement rédigé suivant les théories de Newton. Les 78 belles planches dépliantes gravées sur cuivre représentent des instruments utilisés pour la démonstration des principes de physique. Ce remarquable ouvrage - avec ceux de Musschenbroek et s'Gravesande en Hollande, et de l'abbé Nollet en France - donne une très bonne idée de ce nouvel enseignement des sciences, basé sur l'expérimentation. Jean (John) Théophile Désaguliers (1683-1743), réfugié protestant en Angleterre, enseigna la physique expérimentale, dès 1710, au Collège de Hart-Hall, suivant les théories de son ami Newton. Puis, il ouvrit son propre cours privé que la famille royale fréquentait. Son cabinet était l'un des plus réputés pour la qualité et le nombre des instruments qu'il possédait. De plus, il passait lui-même comme un très habile expérimentateur ; on disait même "un prestidigitateur de marque" (cf. DBF, X, 1168). Quelques rousseurs sans gravité. Manque à la coiffe supérieure du tome I. Wheeler Gift I, 364 ; De Backer VI, 8. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The History of Pompey the Little.

      London: M. Cooper, , 1751. or, The Life and Adventures of a Lap-Dog. Octavo (95 x 160 mm). Contemporary brown calf, raised bands, gilt frame to covers, title blindstamped to second spine compartment. Engraved frontispiece by Louis Botard. Ownership signature to front pastedown. Small chip to headcap, small repair to rear joint, a little stripping to covers, contents clean. A very good copy. First edition. The first edition is very scarce in commerce, particularly in a contemporary binding. Coventry studied at Magdalene College, Cambridge from 1746 onwards, where he met the poet Thomas Gray who presented him with a non-surviving comedy that would provide the basis for Pompey the Little. This satirical novel caricatures the English society of his epoch from the perspective of a lap-dog. The History of Pompey the Little was the first book in the "mock-heroic epic" genre to transcend its stylistic devices and take the form of a novel.

      A Paris, chez Debure l'aîné et Tilliard, 1751 - A Paris, chez Debure l'aîné et Tilliard, 1751 2 volumes in-12 (17,2 x 10,3 cm) de XXXIV-(2)-376 et (1)-459-(5) pages.

Extrémité de la coiffe inférieure du deuxième volume usée avec manque (peu visible cependant), quelques frottements et légères marques. Belles reliures solides et décoratives. Intérieur très frais. Édition originale. L'histoire de Monsieur de La Rivière et celle de son procès avec son beau-père Bussy-Rabutin mérite d'être rapidement résumée. Louise-Françoise de Rabutin, veuve de Gilbert de Langheac (1676) et fille du Lieutenant-Général des armées de Louis XIV exilé dans son château de Bourgogne suite à la parution de l'Histoire amoureuse des Gaules (1665), fait promesse de mariage au sieur de La Rivière le 18 octobre 1679 (contrat du 3 mai 1681). Le mariage est célébré le 19 juin 1681 dans la chapelle du château de Bussy-Rabutin près Sainte-Reine par le curé du village. Elle était enceinte il fallait faire vite. Bussy-Rabutin fou de rage engage un procès pour faire casser ce mariage considérant La Rivière comme un vulgaire paysan (alors que La Rivière était issu de bonne maison). Bussy va faire accoucher secrètement sa fille à Paris. Celle-ci décide de se retirer au couvent des Ursulines de Montbard (1681) pour échapper à l'emprise de son père. La fille est cependant partagée entre l'obéissance due à son père et son amour pour M. de La Rivière. En 1684, l'arrêt du Parlement de Paris ordonne à Mme de Colligni de rejoindre son mari (Bussy-Rabutin perd son procès). Bussy-Rabutin meurt en avril 1693 et sa fille, rendue aux avis de son défunt père, refuse finalement de faire vie commune avec son mari. La Rivière reste à Paris et fréquente les beaux milieux pendant dix ans. En 1713 il décide de se retirer chez les Pères de l'Oratoire où il pratique les devoirs de la religion. La fille de Bussy-Rabutin (Madame de Dalet) mourut âgée de 74 ans en 1716 retirée dans sa famille près d'Autun. La Rivière mourut en 1738 chez les Pères de l'Oratoire de Paris, âgé de 94 ans. Ces deux volumes ont été publiés par Michault de Dijon (auteur de l'abrégé de la vie de La Rivière). Référence : Michaud, Biographie Universelle, Tome 79, pp. 184-188. Bel exemplaire de cet intéressant ouvrage qui traite largement de la famille de Bussy-Rabutin. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The History of Pompey the Little. or, The Life and Adventures of a Lap-Dog.

      London: M. Cooper, 1751 - Octavo (95 x 160 mm). Contemporary brown calf, raised bands, gilt frame to covers, title blindstamped to second spine compartment. Ownership signature to front pastedown. Small chip to headcap, small repair to rear joint, a little stripping to covers, contents clean. A very good copy. Engraved frontispiece by Louis Botard. First edition. The first edition is very scarce in commerce, particularly in a contemporary binding. Coventry studied at Magdalene College, Cambridge from 1746 onwards, where he met the poet Thomas Gray who presented him with a non-surviving comedy that would provide the basis for Pompey the Little. This satirical novel caricatures the English society of his epoch from the perspective of a lap-dog. The History of Pompey the Little was the first book in the "mock-heroic epic" genre to transcend its stylistic devices and take the form of a novel. [Attributes: First Edition]

A restoration with the lower joint in mind. Good copy.The arrival in Paris of a black albino was the occasion for the author to expose his theses on the fortuitous variations which explain the birth of new varieties; these ideas prefigure and contain in germ the genetic theories.

      A. Millar, London 1751 - First edition. xv, [i], 127, [1] pp. 8vo. First edition of Fielding's most important social tract, written as chief magistrate, "the most remarkable of his social tracts - a work as important for what it reveals about his temperament and character as for the remedies it prescribes for the disorders of the commonwealth" (Battestin, pp. 513-4).Fielding advocates reforms to the penal code that would curb the social ills - drunkenness, gambling, prostitution, theft - that plagued mid-18th century England. The social order can only be maintained by instilling fear in the general population, and punishment should be harsh and swift. Executions, instead of being public spectacles, should arouse fear and terror and should be solemnly conducted in secret.

        An Enquiry Concerning The Principles of Morals.

      London: A. Milar, 1751. First edition, first state of L3, with catchword "than" on recto of what Hume himself considered his masterpiece. 12 mo, bound in contemporary full calf. With half-title, errata leaf, and 3 pages of ads at end. In very good condition with light toning and wear, inscription of the Caslon Society on front free endpaper. The Caslon Society was founded by William Caslon the Elder, who was an English typefounder. The distinction and legibility of his type secured him the patronage of the leading printers of the day in England and on the continent. His typefaces transformed English type design and first established an English national typographic style. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Hume's Treatise of Human Nature (1739-40) was the first attempt to apply principles of Locke's empirical psychology to a theory of knowledge. In this and his Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals, Hume stands as a leading voice in the school of Utilitarianism, "the most influential and longest continuing tradition in English speaking moral philosophy... marked by a long line of brilliant writers" that includes Adam Smith, Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill. Hume's Enquiry importantly explores "how we make moral judgments... the 'mechanism' of moral judgments. How are they made and what accounts for their content? Hume aims to be the 'Newton of the Passions.' In contrast to Locke, he does not present a normative system of principles founded on the Laws of Nature... [but] the role it plays in social life and in establishing social unity and mutual understanding... What Hume is trying to do is explain the fact that we agree... On Hume's view there is only one possible basis, and that is one that appeals to our principle of humanity... the psychological tendency we have to identify with the interests and concerns of others when our own interests do not come into competition with them" (Rawls 162, 177-87). An Enquiry was, in Hume's own opinion, "Of all my writings incomparably the best" (Autobiography). The influence of Utilitarianism as furthered by Hume was immense: "He may be regarded as the acutest thinker in Great Britain of the 18th century" (DNB).

Il testo è vergato su una colonna sola (con molte cancellature e correzioni riportate sulla colonna opposta) e reca la data 5 febbraio 1745. Con richiami in calce (testo completo). Il foglio volante aggiunto è anch'esso scritto su una colonna sola e reca la data Ferrara, 7 aprile 1751. Minimi danni ai margini, qualche macchia, lievi arrossamenti marginali. Entrambe i testi riportano un parere tecnico circa dei lavori da eseguirsi sugli argini, sui ripari e sui "lavorieri" di canna della valle di Ostellato, in una diatriba con i Comacchiesi riguardante la pesca e lo spostamento del pesce. Il parere più esteso, redatto su richiesta del Commissario della R.C. Avv. Baldeschi, si richiama all'autorità di Luca Danesi, autore di Un discorso dela Cavo Contarino nel Ferrarese alla Punta d'Ariano, pubblicato insieme nelle Opere (Ferrara, 1670). Pur non essendo firmato, la nota sul titolo ricorda che questi scritti si trovavano fra le carte di Romualdo Bertaglia ed è quindi ipotizzabile che siano ascrivibili a quest'ultimo e che siano state scritte di suo pugno. Romualdo Bertaglia fu uno dei massimi ingegneri idraulici ferraresi del Settecento ed ebbe il titolo di matematico ed idrostatico della città. Insieme a Gian Andrea Barotti, letterato e uomo politico al centro del riformismo settecentesco a Ferrara, svolse un ruolo chiave nel progetto di immissione del Reno nel Po di Primaro attraverso la costruzione del cosiddetto cavo Benedettino.
