In 1710, he was became the editor of the Descriptions of the Arts and Trades, a major government project to stimulate manufacturing and industry throughout France. In 1731 his interest migrated to meteorolgy, leading him to invent the Réaumur thermometer scale.

He also studied botanical and agricultural matters, and devised processes for preserving birds and eggs. In the work offerred for sale here, Reaumur presents his elaborate system of artificial incubation.; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.

        La Commedia tratta da quella che pubblicarono gli Accademici della Crusca l'anno MDXCV. Col comento del M. R. P. Pompeo Venturi della Compagnia di Gesù. Divisa in tre Tomi

      presso Giambatista Pasquali, 1751. Tre volumi in - 16° (17,3 x 11,7 cm), pp. XL, 317, (3); 342; 375, (1), legatura coeva in mezza pelle, con fregi in oro e titoli a secco al dorso. Legatura con qualche segno d'uso e del tempo. All'antiporta del primo volume, tavola fuori testo che riproduce il ritratto di Dante eseguito dal pittore Bernardino India; sempre al primo volume, tavola fuori testo intitolata "Profilo, pianta e misure dell'Inferno di Dante secondo la descrizione di Antonio Manetti Fiorentino". Con molti graziosi finalini incisi. Piccoli restauri al frontespizio del primo volume (integrazione, con carta giapponese, dell'angolo inferiore esterno e strappo perfettamente risarcito nella parte inferiore, vedi foto). Normali segni d'uso al primo volume. Al secondo volume, mancanza dell'angolo superiore esterno alla carta che ospita le pagine 127 - 128, senza perdita di testo; a pagina 341, piccolo lavoro di tarlo che ha determinato la caduta della sillaba "Pu" della parola "Puro" nell'ultimo verso del canto Trentatreesimo, sillaba reintegrata a matita su restauro con carta giapponese. Per il resto buon esemplare di edizione non comune. L'opera, alle pagine IV - XXIX del primo volume, ospita lo scritto "Le vite di Dante e del Petrarca scritte da Lionardo Aretino, cavate da un Manoscritto antico della Libreria di Francesco Redi, e confrontate con altri testi a penna. Si aggiungono ora la Lettera al Lettore, e le varietà dell'edizione di Giovanni Cinelli, procurata in Perugia l'anno 1671". Di grande interesse anche il "Catalogo di molte delle principali Edizioni che sono state fatte della Divina Commedia di Dante Alighieri, disposto per ordine di Cronologia, e arricchito di qualche osservazione da G. V.", elenco contenuto alle pp. XXX - XL sempre del primo volume. Pompeo Venturi (Siena 1693 - Ancona 1752), letterato e gesuita, insegnò nelle scuole del suo ordine a Firenze, Prato, Siena e Roma. Fu autore di componimenti in versi e in prosa, in italiano e in latino. È noto in particolare per il suo commento alla Divina Commedia, pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1732, commento che, pur ampiamente criticato, ebbe grande fortuna fino agli inizi dell'Ottocento.

Segni d'uso e del tempo alla legatura: in particolare, al dorso, la pelle presenta screpolature e le cerniere di ciascun tomo presentano fenditure per tutta la loro lunghezza, tali che i piatti rimangono ancorati alla legatura grazie alle corde e a rinforzi in carta giapponese applicati da intervento di restauro nella piegatura tra i contropiatti e le carte di guardia. Tagli colorati a spruzzo. All'antiporta del primo volume, tavola allegorica incisa su rame.

Alcuni errori nella numerazione delle pagine, compiuti in sede tipografica, ma testo completo; qualche errore anche nella legatura dei fascicoli, con pagine anticipate o posticipate rispetto alla loro corretta posizione. Normale patina del tempo alle pagine, per il resto, esemplare ben conservato. Si tratta della seconda edizione francese, dopo la prima, pubblicata, sempre a Parigi, tra il 1742 e il 1751, della Synopsis historica chronologica de España del Ferreras, opera edita per la prima volta a Madrid tra il 1700 e il 1727. Causa controversie nate intorno alla ricostruzione di alcuni fatti storici, la princeps spagnola fu ritirata dal mercato: lo scritto venne poi ripubblicato, censurato e modificato, tra il 1775 e il 1791. La presente traduzione francese riprende il testo originale non censurato. Juan (de) Ferreras y García (1652 - 1735), fu un religioso ed erudito spagnolo. Tra i fondatori dell'Accademia spagnola, ricoprì il prestigioso incarico di direttore della biblioteca reale. La sua Synopsis histórica de España godette di larga fama, malgrado gli errori di giudizio e cronologia.

        Manuscript compilation on paper, in Spanish

      Madrid, Guadalajara Folio (32.5 cm; 12.25"). [17 (2 blank)] ff.. 1751?74 In 1679 the crown authorized the brothers of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri to establish themselves in Guadalajara, Mexico, and to build a church and chapel near the city's cathedral. This gathering of three cahiers contains a copy, bearing the true signature of the king (not a stamped one), of the authorization allowing the Oratorians' move from their original site to a new one on the Plazuela de Fernando; documentation that the local officials and the bishop have received copies of that decree; and a later => denial by the king, likewise with his signature (not a stamp), of a petititon by the same house of Oratorians to establish a school for teaching boys. It seems the Oratorians had already established the school without permission, and were here royally ordered to cease operation of it! All written in clear hands; cahiers sewn, one document, a single leaf, loose by itself. Minor staining in lower margins of some leaves; minor insect damage costing some letters and an occasional short word but not impairing ability to read and comprehend.

She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaeology. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector.

        Journal du Voyage fait par ordre du Roi a l'Emperateur.

      Paris, l'Imprimerie Royale, MDCCLI 1751 - 4ºmayor (25 x 19,4 cm.) Piel de época, lomo con nervios, hilos dorados y tejuelo rojo. Portada, XXXVI-280-XV pp. 2 grandes mapas plegados, 1 plano topográfico y 3 grabados, 2 de ellos plegados, 1 estado plegado. Primera edición de la expedición científica de La Condamine para determinar el aplanamiento del globo terrestre en los polos. La obra está adornada con cuatro vistas y planos topográficos, incluido el de la ciudad de Quito, un gran cuadro plegado y dos mapas cartografiados por D’Anville en 1749 y 1751. El primero recoge las rutas emprendidas por La Condamine en su viaje al Ecuador, con detalle de Brasil, Perú y Canadá, y el segundo, de una gran precisión, describe la provincia de Quito. Una de las láminas plegadas representa las pirámides de Quito. El cuadro plegado reproduce la inscripción latina en mármol dejada por los exploradores en la que consignan sus observaciones sobre la provincia. Al comienzo de la obra una bella viñeta al cobre por Molié en la que se ve a La Condamine procediendo a dicha inscripción en medio de una exhuberante vegetación. Bello ejemplar, muy limpio y fresco. “The scientific result of the expedition was clear: the earth is indeed a spheroid flattened at the poles, as Newton had maintained. Bouger and La Condamine were unable, however, to agree on the joint publication of their works. Their long quarrel continued through a series of memoirs that were essentially mutual refutations of no scientific value; it ceased only with the death of Bouger in 1758”. Sabin, 38479.

        The history of our national debts and taxes, from the year MDCLXXXVIII, to the present year MDCCLI.

      Four vols. in one, 8vo, (4) 87 and (4) 164 and (4) 144 and (4) 185 (1)pp, 8 folding tables, complete with the half-title and title to each part, each part with its own pagination and register, contemporary calf gilt, rebacked. A very good copy indeed. A comprehensive and detailed history of British taxes from 1688 to 1751. "I hope", writes Gordon, that "this book will establish a maxim observed by all wise nations, but exploded by all wicked ministers, that the annual expence ought never to exceed the annual revenue; and that consequently, when an increase of the former becomes necessary for securing or vindicating the honour or rights of a nation, the latter ought to be increased in proportion, if necessary, even to the utmost the people can spare from their daily subsistence. It will likewise, I hope, establish another maxim, which is this, that when the rich men of any country (who in all free countries must have the government in their hands) endeavour to spare themselves by taxing the poor, they will always at last find themselves disappointed, and in the mean time will ruin the trade and credit of their country".

        Art de faire éclorre et d'élever en toute saison des Oiseaux domestiques de toutes Especes, soit par le moyen de la chaleur du fumier, soit par le moyen de celle du feu ordinaire.

      16 folding engraved plates & 11 engraved headpieces. xviii, 364 pp.; 2 p.l., 427 pp. Two vols. Small 8vo, cont. polished mottled calf (short split to foot of lower joint of Vol. II), spines gilt, red & citron morocco lettering pieces on spines. Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1751. Second edition, considerably enlarged, and a fine association copy: this belonged to Charles Bonnet (1720-93), "one of the fathers of modern biology" (D.S.B.), who has signed both title-pages and made a note on the free front-endpaper of each volume "Donné par l'illustre Auteur." Bonnet was a student of Réaumur and both worked on regeneration. It was Réaumur's suggestion that inspired Bonnet to work on aphids which led to his first -- in 1746 -- and greatest discovery, the parthenogenesis of the aphid. The two had been frequent correspondents since 1737. This is an early and famous work on the artificial incubation of eggs. "But the most famous of all the attempts to make artificial as successful as natural incubation were those of de Réaumur, whose book De l'art de faire éclore les Poulets of 1749 achieved a wide renown. He devotes many chapters to a detailed description of incubators of very various kinds; but he nowhere gives any indication of his percentage hatch. It was probably low. He speaks also of the 'funestes effets' of the vapours of the dung on the developing embryos, without, however, furnishing any foundation for an exact teratology. In the second volume he describes those experiments on the preservation of eggs by varnish which caught the imagination of Maupertuis and were held up to an immortal but by no means deserved ridicule by Voltaire in his Akakia."-Needham, A History of Embryology, p. 203. The finely engraved plates and headpieces show every step of artificial incubation in great detail. This enlarged edition has an extra "Mémoire" with an accompanying additional plate. Fine set and a wonderful association copy, linking two of the greatest natural historians of the 18th century. ❧ D.S.B., XI, pp. 327-35. .

        Geschichte des Gaudentio di Lucca: oder, Merkwürdige nachricht seiner sonderbahren reise durch die sandwusteneyen des innern Africa nach Mezzoranien ..... mit gelehrten anmerkungen des herrn Rhedin .....

      Frankfurt und Leipzig, van Duren. 1751. 2 vols. in 1, 8vo., titles printed in red and black, (10) + 204 and (2) + 271 + (1)pp., contemporary German half calf over marbled boards, spine fully gilt with raised bands and contrasting morocco labels, red edges. A fine copy. First edition in German: scarce thus. Sometime thought to be the work of Bishop Berkeley, this is in fact a utopian novel by Simon Berington (1680-1755), professor of poetry and philosophy at the English College at Douai. It was translated into German by Johann Bernhard Nack. 'Despite the claim that the author first wrote in Italian, this work was originally written in English by a Catholic priest. It gained early fame because it was attributed to Bishop George Berkeley. Neither Berkeley nor Berington bothered to deny the attribution, and over ten editions in English, French, and German were published between its first publication in 1737 and the death of the author in 1755. Berington, through the testimony of his hero Gaudentio di Lucca at the Inquisition, describes the kingdom of Mezzorania in northern Africa. In this utopian society the guiding principle is that Nature is the source of all that is good for mankind. There are echoes of other 18th-century writers, Fénelon and Lescondel, for example, and perhaps even the earlier Vairasse. Mezzorania, it should be noted, is still another of those countries set in a remote area, occupied, in this case, three thousand years earlier by a people fleeing from invading armies. Without contact with the outside world they have been free to develop in a natural environment, with a natural religion and a consequent utopian society.' [Arthur O. Lewis, Utopian literature in the Pennsylvania State University libraries,> 1984, p.18].

        A CONTINUATION OF THE ESSAY UPON FIELD-HUSBANDRY, AS IT IS, OR MAY BE ORDERED IN NEW-ENGLAND

      New London: Timothy Green, 1751. 16mo. Modern blue cloth, gilt-lettered spine. Titlepage trimmed along top edge, touching the top of the first two words of the title. Hole (perhaps a paper flaw) in blank inner margin of the titlepage, not affecting text. Old dampstain throughout. Good. The rare third part of the landmark series of six essays on American agriculture by Jared Eliot. Though the title indicates that the text is limited to New England, Eliot discusses the state of "field husbandry" throughout the colonies, including New York and the South. The DAB emphasizes that for a long time these essays were "the most widely read and prized agricultural essays in America." This third essay contains much on the growing of grains, including wheat, barley, oats, and millet, as well as "Indian corn," and also discusses the need to drain swampland in order to reclaim it for crops. Through his agricultural essays Eliot helped to introduce the concept of soil conservation in the British colonies, and was largely responsible for introducing the silk industry to colonial America. Over the course of the six essays Eliot dismisses the opinion of some in Great Britain that the colonies are of little use. Eliot argues that as the colonial population increases, the number and quality of goods the colonies are able to send to Great Britain will also increase. But more importantly, the demand for British goods will likewise rise, giving Great Britain the double benefit of a greater supply network and a larger market. Eliot is also remembered fondly in New Haven for establishing Yale's first endowed fund to buy books, a legacy which funds purchases to this day. EVANS 6666. NAIP w037582.
