        Luz y metodo debotisimo para saber andar la via sacra

      1752 - Unrecorded Mexican theological work manuscript. 1752. [Mexico]. In 12mo (148 x 98 mm). 2 [blank] + 56 ff. + 2 [blank]. Contemporary morocco gilt, minor wear. Manuscript in ink on paper, slightly cropped, internally clean. 3,200 $ A handsome Mexican colonial manuscript on the Stations of the Cross apparently unpublished. The author, Matias Dieguez, was a Spanish-born Priest and missionary of Mexico, author of at least two other books, one the Espejo de Luz, que deshace las tinieblas de la ignorancia, y hace ver con su luz los engaños de la vanidad y soberbia : descubre, y enseña a las mugeres, y todo genero de personas entregadas loca, y ciegamente à trages, y vanidades profanas, el camino mas solido, y verdadero para seguridad de sus conciencias, (1748), published in Mexico by Hogal, and the Desengaño charitativo, canonico, theologico, moral y mistico (1739). The manuscript was written at the Franciscan seminary of San Fernando in Mexico. The full title is "Luz y metodo debotisimo para saber andar la via sacra, lleno de tiernisimos y dolorosos afectos con unos brebes clamores, toques, y desengaños, que como flechas del cielo hieren y penetran el corazon mas endurecido sacado de su librito Antidoto Espiritual"; however, no record appears to exist as per the Antidoto Espiritual. It is unclear if this volume was written in the hand of Dieguez, or abstracted from one of his books. Palau only lists the two books aforementioned, we could trace no records of this manuscript anywhere. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Extrait de la Premiere Partie de l'Art de la Guerre

      1752. PUYSEGUR, Jacques Francois de Chastenet de. Extrait de la Premiere Partie de lÂ’Art de la GuerreÂ… Avec des Observations & Réflexions Traitées en Abregé. Paris: Charles-Ant. Jombert and Hochereau, et al., 1752. Tall 12mo, contemporary full brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and covers with the armorial crest of the House of Bourbon-Penthièvre. $2500.Early edition of the first part of the Art of War, with observations and reflections, beautifully bound in the morocco-gilt armorial binding of the House of Bourbon-Penthiévre.Marshal Jacques François de Chastenet de Puységur (1656-1743) served with distinction as the most experienced Marshal of Louis XIV. A lifetime of experience combined with devoted study of the classic texts on warfare went into his Art de la Guerre. His son, who also became a Marshal of France, published his fatherÂ’s classic on war posthumously. Volume II analyzes a hypothetical battle staged between the Seine and the Loire Rivers, and discusses several actual campaigns conducted by PuységurÂ’s predecessor, the Vicomte de Turenne, Marshal General of France (Henri de la Tour dÂ’Auvergne). First published in 1748 in folio format. Brunet IV:989. This book bears the contemporary binding of the House of Bourbon-Penthièvre. The House of Bourbon-Penthièvre was an illegitimate branch of the House of Bourbon, therefore descending from the Capetian dynasty. It was founded by the duc de Penthièvre, the only child and heir of the comte de Toulouse, the youngest illegitimate son of Louis XIV of France and the marquise de Montespan, and his wife, Marie Victoire de Noailles, the daughter of Anne Jules de Noailles, duc de Noailles. Suggested provenance in pencil and ink on front endpaper.Interior unusually lovely, only slight rubbing to armorial binding, gilt quite bright. A beautiful copy in about-fine condition.

        Lunario de un siglo, Que comenzava en su original por Enero del año de 1740, y acaba en Diciembre del año de 1841. En que se compreheden ciento y un año cumplidos. Contiene los aspectos principales de Sol, y Luna, esto es las Conjunciones, Oposiciones, y Quartos de la Luna con el Sol, según sus movimientos verdaderos; y la noticias de los Eclipses de ambos Luminares, que serán visibles por todo el Siglo en estas Missiones de la Compañía de Jesús en la Provincia del Paraguay. Regulada, y aligada la hora de los aspectos y eclipses al Meridiano del Pueblo de los esclarecidos Martyres San Cosme, y San Damian

      1752 - An entirely Paraguayan scientific production of the 18th century; exceedingly rare Lunario, the only made on the Jesuit Missions of Paraguay. N.d. [1752]. Barcelona. Pablo Nadal. In 8vo (195 mm x 145 mm). 8 ff. + 196 + 1 [blank]. Original vellum, lightly bowed and soiled. First two folios with short tears, not causing loss, some corners dog-eared, minor toning, else fine. Suarez (1679 – 1750) was born in Santa Fe (Argentina); what little is known today about him is thanks to Jesuit historians and scholars Juan Salaberry and William Furlon Cardiff. Son to Antonio Suarez Altamarino and Maria de Garay, his birth is recorded in the archive of the Metropolitan Church of Santa Fe for the year 1682. After being admitted to the Society of Jesus in 1695, he goes to Cordoba to study Philosophy and Theology; from there, Suarez is destined to Paraguay, and shortly a Priest at the missions of San Cosme and San Damian, then to Itapua and Santa Maria la Mayor. Suarez dedicated his life to living amongst the Guarani’s, becoming well aware of their customs and way of life. His masterpiece, this Lunario, or astronomical calendar, is the sole work of of its kind to have been entirely created in the missions of Paraguay; furthermore, Suarez himself crafted many of the instruments necessary for its confection. It contains the movements of the Sun and the Moon, as they will be seen in the Jesuit Missions of Paraguay, from 1740 until 1841. The first edition was published in Lisbon, undated, however it is given priority to this one, the second edition. Each folio deals with a year, with a table on recto detailing every month and an explanation of the expected astronomical phenomena for said year [“Nota Vulgares”, “Temporas”, “Fiestas Movibles” y “Eclipse”]. Provenance: several manuscript notes on last blank, one being a note from Pedro Montero, and several other ownership inscriptions, all in Spanish. Sabin, 93296. Palau, 323201. Rare, we could only find 3 copies in the United States (Indiana University, Harvard Houghton Library and Yale University Library). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Studentenstammbuch des Johann Martin Oberländer aus Hildburghausen.

      Jena, 1750-1752. - Quer-8vo (170 x 100 mm). Mit 2 Stammbuchkupfern auf den Innendeckeln. Gedrucktes Titelblatt mit hs. Ergänzung u. 163 fehlerhaft paginierte Bll. mit 276 Einträgen. Goldgepr. und bemalter Pergamentband der Zeit. Das sehr reichhaltige Stammbuch eines Thüringer Theologiestudenten enthält ausschließlich Einträge aus Jena. Unter den Beiträgern, die zum größten Teil in der Matrikel der Universität Jena nachgewiesen werden können, sind vor allem Theologen, aber auch viele Juristen und einige Mediziner zu finden. Unter den zahlreichen namhaften Persönlichkeiten seien genannt Wilhelm Hieronymus Bach (1730-54), ein Verwandter Johann Sebastian Bachs aus dem Erfurter Zweig der Familie, Johann Adam Gottlob Barnickel (1733-87), später Rechtskonsulent der Vogtländischen Ritterschaft und Besitzer einer großen Bibliothek, Johann Michael Degner (1719-80), Rektor des Schweinfurter Gymnasiums und auch durch naturwissenschaftliche Arbeiten hervorgetreten, Johann Jakob Fröbel (1730-1802), der Vater Friedrich Fröbels, Friedrich Ludwig August Held (1732-74), schwarzburgischer Stadt- und Amtsphysikus, Johann Stephan Müller (1730-68), Professor der Theologie in Gießen, Johann Christoph Rasche (1733-1805), bekannt durch seine numismatischen Schriften, Johann Christoph Schellenberger (1726-90), Professor der Theologie und Pfarrer der Barfüßergemeinde in Erfurt, und Johann Georg Hieronymus Weingärtner (1733-93), ebenfalls Professor der Theologie und Oberpfarrer in Erfurt (vollständige Liste auf Anfrage). - Besonders interessant sind die gelegentlichen handschriftlichen Bemerkungen des Stammbuchhalters zu seinen Kommilitonen. Oberländer fügte nicht nur die späteren Tätigkeiten oder Sterbedaten seiner Studienkollegen an, sondern gibt mehrfach auch launige Kommentare ab. So schreibt er zu Johann Christian Faustus (geb. 1728), der als Feldprediger nach Kursk gegangen ist, "jagt Zobel in Sibirien". Faustus ist noch 1781 in Kursk nachweisbar. Andere Mitstudenten charakterisiert er als "verdrüßlichen Hauptmann von Kapernaum", "tiefsinnige[n] Mathematicus" oder konstatiert: "Anjetzo ein hypochondrischer Candidat, hat aber eine sehr reiche Mutter". Die beiden Kupfer auf den Innendeckeln zeigen das Collegium Jenense und den Jenaer Markt (letzteres mit Feuchtigkeitsspuren und Tintenkritzelei). - Einband stärker berieben und bestoßen, Innengelenke gebrochen, Buchblock vom Einband gelöst. Innen gering gebräunt, gelegentlich etwas wasser- oder fingerfleckig, vereinzelt kl. Randeinrisse. Mehrere Bll. entfernt, darunter 1 Registerblatt zu Beginn.

In 1733, at the age of six, he was made a field marshal, and the next year, a lieutenant general.

Penthièvre was one of the wealthiest men of his day and probably the richest in France. He was known to be very charitable. Bibliographers variously attribute authorship of Le Comte de Dunois to Mme. Desjardins, Mme. de Villedieu, Comtesse Henriette de Murat or to Pierre dÂ’Ortigue de Vaumorière.

      - NBG XXXXV, cols. 680-682. Interesting collection of autograph signed letters containing notes on personal, political and maritime matters, written by the French Grand Admiral Comte Laurent Jean François Truguet (10 January 1752-26 December 1839), knight of the Grand-Cross of the Legion d'Honneur. In 1765 he entered the Navy and took part in numerous battles in the service of the Ancien Regime. Major de Vaisseau from 1784, he cooperated on the tasks assigned to M. Choiseuil-Gouffier, ambassador to Constantinople, and was charged with instructing the Ottomans in the arts of fortification, artillery, naval architecture, etc. As an enthusiastic Republican, he supported the Revolution and was promoted to the rank of rear admiral in 1792. He bombarded Nice, Villefranche and Oneglia. Visiting Corsica, he was received by the Bonaparte family and began a romance with Elisa, sister of the future emperor. In 1804 he took a public stand against the establishment of the Empire in a letter that became historic. This consigned him to five years of severe disgrace. In 1809, however, the Emperor recalled him and gave him the command of the Kingdom of Holland's navy. After the fall of the Empire Truguet returned to Paris where Louis XVIII brought him back into the navy at the head of the naval corps. On the second restoration he was given overall command of the Brest fleet. At the end of the July monarchy, Truguet was elevated to the post of Grand Admiral, the highest naval honour.Important collection in good condition.

        Rome sauvée, tragédie. De M. de Voltaire. Réprésentée pour la première fois à Paris par les Comédiens français ordinaire du roy, le jeudi 24 février 1752.

      Chez Etienne Bourdeaux, A Berlin 1752 - In-12 de (2)-106 pp., percaline beige, pièce de titre en long, monogramme doré MH , frappé en coin sur le premier plat (reliure du XIXe siècle). Première édition, non autorisée. Le titre porte en épigraphe la citation défectueuse d'un vers de Virgile : « Vincit [sic pour Vincet] amor Patriae. En 1752 Voltaire séjournait encore à Berlin, invité du roi de Prusse, et remaniat plusieurs fois le texte de sa pièce. La tragédie fut représentée pour la première fois au Théâtre-Français le 24 février 1752 ; Frédéric II ayant désiré la voir jouée, les princes et princesses de la famille royale y jouèrent les rôles. La deuxième édition fut imprimée à la suite de Supplément au Siècle de Louis quatorze (Dresde, 1753), précédée d'une préface et d'un avis au lecteur dans lequel Voltaire se plaint de deux éditions de 1752 : « Cette pièce est fort différente de celle qui parut il y a plus d'un an en 1752 à Paris sous le même titre. Des copistes l'avaient transcrite aux représentations, et l'avaient toute défigurée. Leurs omissions étaient remplies par des mains étrangères ; il y avait une centaine de vers qui n'étaient pas de l'auteur. On fit de cette copie infidèle une édition furtive : cette édition était défectueuse d'un bout à l'autre ; et on ne manqua pas de l'imiter en Hollande avec beaucoup plus de fautes encore. L'auteur a soigneusement corrigé la présente édition, faite à Leipsik par son ordre et sous ses yeux ; il y a même changé des scènes entières ». L'exemplaire est truffé de notes manuscrites d'une écriture uniforme du temps ; ce sont des corrections, compléments et ajouts dont la source est l'éditon publiée en 1753.

John, a tanner by trade, and Mary Borradaile of Wigton ran a Cloth factory in Wigton and their two sons, Richardson and William [1750-1831] ran a London hat and fur business before becoming major traders and shipping owners. They were East India Company directors with Richardson becoming an MP for Newcasstle Upon Tyne in 1826. This family bible from Wigton presumably was owned by John Borradailes [1725-1783] and repaired by his wealthy descendants in this superb Riviere binding in London a hundred years later.. Hardback.

        Traité d'optique où l'on donne la théorie de la lumière dans le système newtonien avec de nouvelles solutions des principaux problèmes de dioptrique et de catoptrique

L'auteur y propose de nombreuses "solutions analytiques" à certaines propositions qui furent énoncées par Newton, sans démonstration. Il analyse notamment avec une grande rigueur mathématique la fameuse question de l'arc-en-ciel. "In his Treatise on optics Courtivron assailed the Cartesian concept of light and championed the Newtonian. He did not servilely follow Newton, for in his view color results from differences in speed rather than from those in weight. Furthermore, in affirming that dense mediums slow down light corpuscles, he made use of Fermat's principle of least time, recently revived by Maupertuis" (DSB III p. 454).

        Desmographie ou description des ligamens du corps humain

      1752 - de (4), XVI, 144 pages et 11 Paris, Durand, 1752, in-8, de (4), XVI, 144 pages et 11 planches, plein veau marbré de l'époque, filet à froid d'encadrement sur les plats, dos à 5 nerfs orné de motifs floraux, tranches marbrées, 11 planches repliées présentent 82 petites figures en noir de tous les ligaments du corps humain, connus à l'époque. Première édition française, due à Pierre Tarin du Syndesmologia, sive historia ligamentorum corporis humani (Saint-Pétersbourg, 1742) de Weitbrecht. Comme nous l'apprend le traducteur français dans son "Avertissement", il s'agit, en réalité, d'un "extrait" et il ne faut donc pas s'étonner si un in-4 assez considérable se voit réduit à un petit in-8 : "Je me déterminai donc à en tirer tout ce qui est purement anatomique pour me servir de base dans les leçons que j'avois à faire sur ces parties [.]. J'ai enfin destiné cet Extrait à l'impression pour qu'il devint d'une utilité plus étendue ; et j'ai aimé mieux ne donne qu'une description purement anatomique des Ligamens [.] J'ai fait réduire à moitié les figures, afin de ne point jetter les Etudians dans de trop grands frais en multipliant les planches". Après celles de Winslow, les descriptions de Weitbrecht sont considérées, dès le XVIIIe siècle par Tarin notamment, puis par ses successeurs au XIXe, et aujourd'hui par les spécialistes de l'histoire de la médecine, comme d'une absolue nouveauté et d'une grande fiabilité : "one of the first attempts to describe the ligaments as a unit of anatomy. Many similar descriptions were repeated in detail in the middle of the nineteenth century by anatomists who were apparently not aware that Weitbrecht was the first to describe them. Ligaments in the knee joint that bear the eponyms of Wrisberg, Humphry, Robert, and perhaps others, were originally well described by Weitbrecht" (Hagelin, Kinetic Jottings, p. 84). Pierre Tarin, médecin et anatomiste français, dirigea les parties ayant trait à l'Anatomie et à la Chirurgie pour l'Encyclopédie, et rédigea quelques monographies d'anatomie générale (des Adversaria Aantomica en 1750, puis un Dictionnaire anatomique, une Myographie et une Ostéographie, en 1753). Étiquette ex-dono de la bibliothèque des Liouville et cachet annulé de l'Institut catholique de Paris. Coiffes arasées, une charnière en partie fendue, coupes et coins usés. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Le Prince, commanded by Captain Morin, left the port of Lorient on 19 February 1752, sailing for Pondicherry. The voyage passed quietly until fire was discovered in the ship. It spread fast, and the ship exploded when the fire reached the gunpowder magazine, leaving only 10 survivors. The second account relates the seizure of the ship Rustenwerk, a 650-ton Dutch East Indiaman. Moored off Ternate, it was taken by the pirate Frans Fransz on 28 June 1751 and some 12 passengers (including the Captain) were killed. The survivors reached Batavia by way of Makassar and sailed for Holland. The VOC eventually managed to retake the ship, but Frans Fransz escaped with the valuable cargo. The account includes a list of 210 VOC ships lost in the period 1688-1752 through disasters, mutiny, piracy etc.In good condition.

        Elemens de l'Architecture navale, Traite pratique de la construction des vaisseaux.

      Paris: Charles Antoine Jombert, 1752. Quarto, frontispiece, title-page vignette; a very good copy in contemporary mottled calf. A beautiful first edition of this landmark in the development of naval architecture. This study distilled the French naval engineer Duhamel's years of experience into a well-organised manual, and was 'the first training manual for aspiring naval constructors ever produced' (James Pritchard, "From Shipwright to Naval Constructor", Technology and Culture, 28:1, p. 16). Duhamel was responsible for instilling a belief in best practice rather than simple routine, with the result that this is an important work of nascent engineering, concerned with obtaining the best results within the practical constraints of their trade.The mid-eighteenth century marked the zenith of early French naval construction, a period when the design of their warships was much envied and much copied (it is telling that the British regularly converted prizes into flagships). Especially in the second quarter of the eighteenth century, French shipwrights went through a period which saw many major innovations, and this study was the signature work.Duhamel had initially been involved with detailed studies of specific questions such as the prevention of dry rot, the manufacture of rope, or the conservation of water at sea. His pursuit of answers to such questions led him to England and Holland, as well as French arsenals and their India Company at Lorient. It was Duhamel who bucked the trend of increasingly theoretical works, and he was behind the founding of elementary schools for apprentice shipwrights, the first founded in Toulon in 1741 and another in Paris shortly after. His influence is attested to by the fact that the 'chief constructors of the three major naval dockyards during the 1750s were all former students' (Pritchard, "From Shipwright to Naval Constructor", p. 15).This is a beautifully produced work, with twenty-five engravings on twenty-three folding plates (not twenty-four, as commonly listed). The elegant engraved frontispiece and vignettes at the head of each chapter are by Nicolas Ozanne; a naval engineer himself, Ozanne worked at Brest and Paris, and his work led to him being given 'le brevet de dessinateur de la marine'. Front hinge worn.

        Aedes Walpolianae: or, a description of the collection of pictures at Houghton-Hall in Norfolk, the seat of the Right Honourable Sir Robert Walpole, Earl of Orford

      London printed [by John Hughs, from the colophon] in the year, MDCCLII [1752] Royal 4to: 143,[1]pp, with two copper-engraved portraits by Vertue (of Sir Robert and Lady Walpole) and four folding architectural plates (two floor plans and views of the East and West fronts). Includes "A sermon on painting" (which Horace wrote for the amusement of Sir Robert) and "A journey to Houghton . . . A poem. By the Reverend Mr. Whaley." Continental quarter calf over marbled boards. Unidentified copper-engraved armorial book plate to front paste down. On the front fly leaf, in an elegant hand, an old inscription at top: "Cornelius Grogan. Ex dono Guli: Tench," and below (in Grogan's hand) is copied the Latin inscription from the foundation stone of Houghton Hall. (Grogan was the eldest son of John Grogan of Johnstown Castle, Wexford, a Protestant landlord and member of the Irish parliament. On the outbreak of the Irish rebellion of 1798, Cornelius joined the insurgents, and was later court-martialed and hanged and beheaded on Wexford bridge.) Boards rubbed, very occasional text soiling, else an excellent, wide-margined example, beautifully printed, clean, fresh and bright, in handsome period binding. Hazen, Walpole, 4. Sowerby 4238. Lowndes V, 2818.The Second Edition, with greatly expanded room-by-room descriptions of the painting collection of Sir Robert Walpole, Earl of Orford (England's first prime minister and the author's father), "incorporating numerous corrections and additions in the text and plates." (Hazen) When he finally fell from power in 1742, Walpole transferred his treasures from Downing Street to Houghton Hall, the estate he built in in Norfolk, with rooms of various scales and sizes and contrasting degrees of splendor, to accomomodate the greatest private art collection in Europe. After Horace returned from his Grand Tour in 1737, he began compiling Aedes Walpoliana, which was first published in 1747, and which compared Walpole's magnificent collection to those of the Continent's princes and noblemen. "[B]y 1736 he [Robert Walpole] owned 421 pictures, of which at least 400 had been acquired by him. His taste mirrored that of the age, and the collection was particularly strong in Dutch, especially Flemish, works, while containing significant numbers of paintings from the French and Italian schools. . . . At Houghton, the old masters were concentrated in the salon and drawing room and included such masterpieces as Van Dyck's 'The Holy Family' and Rembrandt's 'Abraham's Sacrifice.'" (ODNB) In 1779, when the third earl of Orford decided to sell the collection to raise money, Christie (who founded the auction house) handled the greatest country house picture sale of the eighteenth century, in which Walpole's collection was sold privately to Catherine the Great for the then record sum of £40,000." Parenthetically, Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of this edition, one of the books he bought in 1785 from the Rev. Samuel Henley. (Sowerby)

        The History of the Portuguese, during the Reign of Emmanuel: containing all their discoveries, from the coast of Africk to the farthest parts of China... Now first translated into English by James Gibbs.

      London: A. Millar, 1752. Two volumes, octavo, contemporary mottled calf. First English edition. Osorio, often described as the "Portuguese Cicero", chronicled the reign of King Manuel I of Portugal (1495-1521), during which the sea route to India was discovered and the foundations of empire laid in Africa, Asia and America. The Latin original appeared in 1571. There were several foreign editions and translations, but the book did not appear in Portuguese itself until 1804. Osorio 'was born in Lisbon and studied at Salamanca, Paris, and Bologna. He became an official in India, private secretary to the infante Luis, held many high positions in the Church, and was eventually made Bishop of Silves, and later of Evora. The earl of Essex, during his raid into southern Portugal in 1596, captured Osorio's fine library, which he later presented to the Bodleian Library, where the books still remain, Osorio's book details the explorations, expeditions, and embassies under the reign of King Manuel of Portugal... included are the accomplishments of Cortereal, Vasco da Gama, Magellan, Cabral, and de Lemes... ' (Hill catalogue).Osório's history 'was the book about the discoveries most widely read in the rest of Europe... Outside of Portugal his reputation was made by his chronicle. Montaigne in 1588 referred to him as "the best Latin historian of our century"' (Lach II/2 pp. 139-45). Joints cracked but the sides firmly held, spine labels renewed.

        VOYAGE HISTORIQUE DE L'AMERIQUE MERIDIONALE FAIT PAR ORDRE DU ROI D'ESPAGNE...

      Amsterdam & Leipzig: Arkste'e & Merkus, 1752. Two volumes. [22],554; [2],316,[6],[6],309,[3]pp., plus fifty-five plates and maps (most folding). Quarto. Contemporary speckled calf, spines gilt, leather labels. Hinges cracked, boards lightly worn and stained. Bookplates on front endpapers. Light scattered foxing and soiling. A good plus copy with nice wide margins. First French edition, after the original Spanish of 1747. Sabin lists the French language edition as published in Amsterdam and Leipzig, with the note: "Some copies of this French translation have the imprint, 'Paris: Charles Antoine Jombert, MDCCLII'; this has given rise to the idea that an edition was printed there, which is not the case; there is merely a change in the title. The translator was M. de Mauvillon." This voyage to Peru was undertaken due to the desire of the French government to send members of the Academy of Sciences to measure a degree of longitude in the equinoctial countries of Peru. To share in the honor the King of Spain sent along his two most scientific-oriented officers, Ulloa and Juan. The text is illustrated with handsome engraved plates and maps of the region and the inhabitants. Much of the second volume is devoted to the Incas and their customs. COX II, p.275. HILL 1740. PALAU 125479. MEDINA 3464. FIELD 1587. SABIN 36812. BORBA DE MORAES, p.873 (ref).

        Prospetto del Palazzo Pontificio di Loreto, del nuovo Campanile, e facciata della Basilica Lauretana...

      1752. "Bella veduta prospettica del Palazzo Pontificio e della facciata della Basilica lauretana, dopo l'intervento di restauro di Luigi Vanvitelli, promosso da papa Benedetto XIV. Vanvitelli completò il loggiato del Palazzo Apostolico, fatto dal Bramante, e aggiunse alla basilica il monumentale campanile. In alto, la Santa Casa di Nazaret che, secondo la tradizione, gli angeli trasportarono in volo. In basso al centro, le insegne papali di Benedetto XIV. L'incisione fu disapprovata proprio dall'architetto in una lettera del 27 maggio di quell'anno ( cfr. L.VANVITELLI, Le lettere di Luigi Vanvitelli della Biblioteca Palatina di Caserta, a cura di F. STRAZZULLO, 1976). Acquaforte, firmata in lastra in basso a destra ""Giuseppe Vasi disegnò e incise"". In ottimo stato di conservazione." "Large prospective view of the façade of the Basilica della Santa Casa, with the campanile by Luigi Vanvitelli and the Palazzo Apostolico. At top side, a scene depicting angels carrying the Holy House of the Virgin Mary from Nazareth to Loreto According to tradition in 1291 angels carried the house of the Virgin Mary from Nazareth to a location in Dalmatia and three years later to a hill near Recanati in the Marches. Etching, signed at bottom right ""Giuseppe Vasi disegnò ed incise."" At bottom centre, the coat of pope Benedict XIV"". In very good condition." Scalabroni, 418 980 650
