        Nouvelle Découverte Du Principe De L'Harmonie, Avec un Examen de ce que M. Rameau a publié sous le titre de Demonstration de ce principe. Bound with 4 other important 18th century treatises

      Paris: Sebastien Jorry. 1752. 1f. (title), [iii]-xvi (introduction), 54, 2ff. ("Approbation," "Privilege du Roy") pp. Title with publisher's woodcut device of two storks with snake. With occasional decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. Occasional light foxing, staining, and signs of use. A clean, wide-margined copy overall. The second edition, published a year after the first. Rare. Gregory-Bartlett I, p. 84. RISM BVI p. 296 (only 2 copies in the U.S., one in Great Britain). Not in Cortot, Wolffheim, or Hirsch. "[Esteve] was a member of the Societe Royale des Sciences et des Arts de Montpellier, and contributed early studies in mathematics, astronomy and physics. Shortly after the middle of the century he moved to Paris, where he participated in proceedings of the Academie Royale des Sciences. There he took issue with some of Rameau's ideas, questioning the validity of a theory based on the physical properties of sound without adequate consideration for elements that contribute to the quality of that sound and to its impact on the sensibility of the listener. He favoured a theory based on melodic rather than on harmonic principles, and argued for a 1/4- comma mean-tone tuning system as ideally suited to music of the time." Albert Cohen in Grove Music Online. Bound with: Aubert, Jean Louis 1731- 1814]. Réfutation suivie et détaillée des principes de M. Rousseau de Genève, Touchant la Musique Françoise. Adressée a lui-même, en Réponse à Sa Lettre. Le prix est de 24. f. Paris: Chaubert; Chez Hochereau, 1754. 1f. (title), iii-vi ("Avant-Propos"), 98, 2ff. (Approbation, Privilége du Roi) pp. With occasional decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. Slightly browned. First Edition. Very scarce. RISM BVI p. 101. Cortot pp. 36-37. Gregory-Bartlett, p. 19. Aubert was a writer, dramatist, and abbé. "He may have composed some of the music to his own plays..., but he is remembered more for his essays on music, the most famous being his reply to J.-J. RousseauÂ’s controversial Lettre sur la musique françoise. In his Refutation... (taking up arms in the Querelle des Bouffons) Aubert met Rousseau on his own ground and, in language often sarcastic and witty, stressed the genius of French composers such as Rameau, Leclair and Mondonville." Elizabeth Keitel and Marc Signorile in Grove Music Online. Bound with: Bâton, Charles le jeune Early 18th century-after 1754. Examen de la lettre de M. Rousseau, sur la musique françoise. Dans lequel on expose le plan d'une bonne Musique propre à notre langue... Seconde Édition, Augmentée. [Paris]: 1754. 1f. (title), 1f. ("Avertissement"), 43, [i] (blank) pp. Minor stains to upper edge. Second edition. Very scarce. RISM BVI p. 123. Not in Cortot, Gregory- Bartlett, or Wolffheim. Bâton was a French composer and virtuoso on the hurdy-gurdy. "In 1753 Bâton entered the Querelle des Bouffons with a pamphlet Examen de la ‘Lettre de M. Rousseau... In his pamphlet Bâton agreed with Rousseau that the Italian language had advantages over the French for lyric poetry and singability, but disagreed that French music was largely worthless and strongly refuted Rousseau's notion that fugues, counterpoint and complex harmony were (in Rousseau's term) ‘une sottiseÂ’. Perhaps because the pamphlet was so well written, another disputant accused Diderot of having written it and Bâton of merely having posed as its author, but there is no evidence of that." Neal Zaslaw and Robert A. Green in Grove Music Online. Bound with: Gallimard, Jean Edme 1685- 1771]. Arithmetique des musiciens, ou Essai... Paris: September 1754.

Not in Cortot, Gregory-Bartlett, Wolfheim, or Hirsch. Octavo. Full brown mottled calf with raised bands on spine in decorative compartments gilt, titling gilt, marbled endpapers. With "Armand Pushman" (most likely the son of Hovsep Pushman (1877-1966), the noted American artist of Armenian background) and a works list in a twentieth-century hand to front free endpaper. Binding slightly worn. . A rare and very attractive compilation of five notable treatises (most in first edition) composed in the heat of the infamous Querelle des Bouffons, a musical and literary dispute waged in Paris between 1752 and 1754 over the respective merits of French and Italian opera. The treatises by Gallimard were among the first to implement Rameau's ideas about fundamental bass, and offer a rare glimpse into 18th-century teachings relating to mathematics and music.

        Voyage historique de l'Amerique Meridionale fait par ordre du Roi d'Espagne par don George Juan . et par don Antoine de Ulloa . ouvrage orne' des figures, plans et cartes necessaires et qui contient une histoire des Yncas du Perou, et les observations astronomiques & physiques, faites pour déterminer la figure & la grandeur de la terre [Two Volumes]

      Chez Charles-Antoine Jombert, Paris 1752 - Palau 125473. Sabin 36812. JCB III: 974. Medina BHA: 3464. LCP. Afro-Americana: 5409. Hill 1740. Title in red and black; engraved title vignettes. Translations by E. de Mauvillon of Ulloa's "Relacion historica del viage a la America Meridional," and of the companion work by Jorge Juan y Santacilia, entitled, "Observations astronomicas y physicas hechas de orden de S. Mag. en los reynos del Perù" (both published at Madrid in 1748); and of Garcilaso de la Vega's "Comentarios reales de los Incas." This copy with the Paris imprint, but Sabin argues it is just a change to the title page of the Arkste's & Merkus edition (Amsterdam et Leipzig) the same year. In 1735 the French Academy of Science requested permission to send an expedition to the equatorial regions of Spanish controlled South America in order for Charles de la Condamine and other French scientists to measure several degrees of meridian at the equator. By comparing their results with those obtained by a similar mission to Lapland, the Academie hoped to settle the controversy between the Newtonians and the Cartesians over whether the earth was flattened or elongated at the poles. Ulloa and Juan y Santacilia, Spain's best scientific officers, were sent along. Despite great difficulties, the expedition's geodetic measurements proved the validity of Newton's hypothesis. Antonio de Ulloa y de la Torre-Girault (1716 -1795) was later the first Spanish governor of Louisiana though he was deposed in 1768 after two years, during a creole revolt and also served as governor of Huancavelica in Peru. Very good copies, boards rubbed, spines worn with a small chip to the rebacking, scattered foxing, and a few of the later scientific plates browned, otherwise impressions quite sharp.

Z. auf 5 Bünden (berieben, ein Kapital mit kleiner Fehlstelle, Deckel mit Wurmspuren) mit Rückenschild und reicher Rückenvergoldung.

      Leipzig und Amsterdam, Peter Schenk, 1752.. . Erste Ausgabe. Berühmte Prosaübersetzung der anonymen niederdeutschen Fassung von 1498, mit ausführlichem kritischem und bibliographischem Vorwort von Gottsched. Heinrich von Alkmar ist hier irrig als Verfasser des Reinhart-Gedichtes angegeben. Er fügte dem Werk jedoch nur eine prosaische Glosse hinzu, der eigentliche Bearbeiter war der Buchdrucker Barkhusen (vgl. Goedeke I 481, 6 usw.) Die Vorreden Heinrichs und Nikolaus Baumanns (von 1549) sind mit abgedruckt. Der niederdeutsche Urtext bildet - mit separatem Titel - den 2. Teil des Buches. Diese Übersetzung von Gottsched mit den Anmerkungen von Alkmar und Baumann benutzte Goethe, als er 1793 daran ging, die Geschichte in die klassische Hexameter-Form zu kleiden. Die schönen Radierungen von Allaert van Everdingen (1621-1675) sind hier zum erstenmal in einem Buch vereint (Hollstein VI S. 203). Die Tierbilder wirken sehr frisch und anekdotisch und zeigen deutlich den Einfluß seines Lehrers Roelant Savery (vgl. dazu Lanck./Oehler I S. 68 und Rümann 23). Everdings "außerordentliches Talent bewegte sich auch in der Tierfabel mit großer Leichtigkeit; seine Tiere passen vortrefflich zu der Landschaft und harmonieren mit ihr aufs anmutigste" (Nagler). - Anfangs unterschiedlich stockfleckig.

        Amelia

      London: Printed by A. Millar, 1752. First edition. Fine. First issue with dropped pagination on page 22 of vol. i; typo "the at Folly" in vol. III, p.191, (later corrected to "at the Folly"), retaining the "Universal-Register-Office" leaf in vol. II. (ROTHSCHILD 853; CROSS III:321; ESTC T89846.) Four 12mo volumes (pages 158 x 95 mm), collating: xii, 285; viii, 262 [1]; ix, 323; vii, 296 pp, complete. Bound by Riviere in 19th century full red polished diced calf, gilt-ruled; gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. The bookplate of book and art collector, John Sheepshanks, (dated 1852) on the pastedowns of each volume. The bindings are in lovely shape, although the hinges show some slight rubbing on volume one. A short closed tear in the running title in the last 10 leaves of volume one, otherwise an excellent set both inside and out. Fielding's final novel, a domestic drama about the relationship between the title character and Captain William Booth. Fielding was one of the great English satirists of the 18th century, writing both drama and novels, including Tom Jones, one the great works of English fiction. He began writing Amelia in 1749, and was heavily influenced both by his own life - it's been speculated the character of Amelia was based on Fielding's wife -- and Virgil's Aeneid. Though the book was a target of some scathing notices in the London "paper war" of 1752, of which Fielding played a major part, novelist John Cleland, writing in the Monthly Review, called Amelia "the boldest stroke that has yet been attempted in this species of writing.". Fine.

      . Pinsel in Braun und Grau, braun und grau laviert, über Bleistift, über ganz schwach angelegter Bleistiftquadrierung, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, links unten signiert "W. Huber apres JC Hub.". 28,6:37,8 cm, auf Sammlungsuntersatz mit mehreren Tuschlinien und grauem Aquarellrand aufgezogen. Mit zwei Wurmlöchern links oben. Provenienz: Aus dem Besitz der Nachfahren des Künstlers.. Seine erste künstlerische Ausbildung erhielt Jakob Wilhelm Huber bei seinem Vater Johann Caspar Huber (1752-1827). Im vorliegenden Fall war vermutlich ein Gemälde des Vaters die Vorlage für unsere Zeichnung. Im Alter von zwei Jahren siedelte der Vater des Künstlers, der als geborener Glattfelder (Schweiz) in Düsseldorf als Maler tätig war, nach Zürich über. Seit 1808 unternahm Jakob Wilhelm Huber zahlreiche Wanderungen, die ihn über München und Wien 1810 nach Rom führten. Hier war er mit P. von Cornelius (1783-1867) befreundet, mit dem er 1813 eine Reise nach Orvieto unternahm. Zuvor hatte er gemeinsam mit seinem Malerfreund J. Rebell (1787-1828) im Juni 1812 von Rom aus eine Reise nach Neapel unternommen, wo sie Landschaftsstudien betrieben. 1815 folgte ein viermonatiger Abstecher nach Sizilien und erneut von Rom aus verschiedene Ausflüge nach Neapel. Ab 1817 weilte Huber in Pompeji, wo er Aufnahmen für eine geplante Publikation von kolorierten Lithographien von Pompeji anfertigte. Als Gehilfen ließ er J.J. Wolfensberger (1797-1850) nach Neapel kommen, ein Streit verhinderte jedoch die geplante Zusammenarbeit. Ab 1821 lebte Huber wieder in Zürich.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Ferrara, 30. X. 1752.. 1 S. 8vo. Mit Adresse und papiergedecktem Siegel. Beiliegend eine Bolzoni zugeschriebene Skizze zur Initiale "Q" mit kleiner Landschaft.. In dem an den Erzpriester Baruffaldi gerichteten Brief versichert er, die von jenem in Auftrag gegebene Medaille bereits in Arbeit und wohl bis November fertiggestellt zu haben. Nicht festzustellen war, ob es sich bei dem Adressaten um den Biographen und Kunstschriftsteller Girolamo Baruffaldi (1675-1753 o. 55), auf dessen Vorschlag hin Bolzoni 1797 zu Giacomo Parolini (1663-1733 oder 1667-1737) ging, oder um einen seiner Verwandten handelt. - In Bologna von seinem Onkel Francesco Bolzoni (gest. 1728) und von Giacomo Parolini ausgebildet, war Bolzoni seit 1727 in Ferrara tätig. So genau seine graphischen Arbeiten erfaßt sind, ist "trotz der Forschungen von Varese Bolzonis Tätigkeit als Stempelschneider für Münzvorlagen noch ungenügend erforscht" (Saur XII, 431). Vgl. auch Thieme/Becker IV, 258. - Brief und Skizze gering stockfleckig; der Brief mit kleinem Loch und winzigem Einriß auf der mit Ausnahme der Adresse leeren Blatthälfte.

        LETTRES IROQUOISES

      Irocoplois [i.e. Lausanne or Leyden]: Chez Les Venerables, 1752.. Two volumes bound in one. 166[2];164pp. 16mo. Full crimson French morocco, gilt extra, a.e.g., blue pastepaper endsheets. Title printed in red and black. Binding somewhat rubbed, with shallow nick at crown of upper joint, light foxing, very good. With the bookplate of Robert Hoe. First edition of this somewhat early and popular anonymously published work by the adventurer/rogue/journalist/pamphleteer, and later Secretary to the King of Poland. The text is represented as a sequence of letters composed by a native American Iroquois, named Igli, traveling in Europe, critiquing European mores and foibles -- which inevitably fall short of his own native wisdom. Identification of the fictitious imprint varies between Lausanne and Leyden, depending on the reference. Reprints and somewhat abbreviated and revised editions followed soon after. SABIN 46922. BARBIER II:1278.

        Nouvelle Découverte Du Principe De L'Harmonie, Avec un Examen de ce que M. Rameau a publié sous le titre de Demonstration de ce principe. Bound with 4 other important 18th century treatises

      Paris: Sebastien Jorry. 1752. 1f. (title), [iii]-xvi (introduction), 54, 2ff. ("Approbation," "Privilege du Roy") pp. Title with publisher's woodcut device of two storks with snake. With occasional decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. Occasional light foxing, staining, and signs of use. A clean, wide-margined copy overall. The second edition, published a year after the first. Rare. Gregory-Bartlett I, p. 84. RISM BVI p. 296 (only 2 copies in the U.S., one in Great Britain). Not in Cortot, Wolffheim, or Hirsch. "[Esteve] was a member of the Societe Royale des Sciences et des Arts de Montpellier, and contributed early studies in mathematics, astronomy and physics. Shortly after the middle of the century he moved to Paris, where he participated in proceedings of the Academie Royale des Sciences. There he took issue with some of Rameau's ideas, questioning the validity of a theory based on the physical properties of sound without adequate consideration for elements that contribute to the quality of that sound and to its impact on the sensibility of the listener. He favoured a theory based on melodic rather than on harmonic principles, and argued for a 1/4- comma mean-tone tuning system as ideally suited to music of the time." Albert Cohen in Grove Music Online. Bound with: Aubert, Jean Louis 1731- 1814]. Réfutation suivie et détaillée des principes de M. Rousseau de Genève, Touchant la Musique Françoise. Adressée a lui-même, en Réponse à Sa Lettre. Le prix est de 24. f. Paris: Chaubert; Chez Hochereau, 1754. 1f. (title), iii-vi ("Avant-Propos"), 98, 2ff. (Approbation, Privilége du Roi) pp. With occasional decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. Slightly browned. First Edition. Very scarce. RISM BVI p. 101. Cortot pp. 36-37. Gregory-Bartlett, p. 19. Aubert was a writer, dramatist, and abbé. "He may have composed some of the music to his own plays..., but he is remembered more for his essays on music, the most famous being his reply to J.-J. Rousseau?'s controversial Lettre sur la musique françoise. In his Refutation... (taking up arms in the Querelle des Bouffons) Aubert met Rousseau on his own ground and, in language often sarcastic and witty, stressed the genius of French composers such as Rameau, Leclair and Mondonville." Elizabeth Keitel and Marc Signorile in Grove Music Online. Bound with: Bâton, Charles le jeune Early 18th century-after 1754. Examen de la lettre de M. Rousseau, sur la musique françoise. Dans lequel on expose le plan d'une bonne Musique propre à notre langue... Seconde Édition, Augmentée. [Paris]: 1754. 1f. (title), 1f. ("Avertissement"), 43, [i] (blank) pp. Minor stains to upper edge. Second edition. Very scarce. RISM BVI p. 123. Not in Cortot, Gregory- Bartlett, or Wolffheim. Bâton was a French composer and virtuoso on the hurdy-gurdy. "In 1753 Bâton entered the Querelle des Bouffons with a pamphlet Examen de la ?'Lettre de M. Rousseau... In his pamphlet Bâton agreed with Rousseau that the Italian language had advantages over the French for lyric poetry and singability, but disagreed that French music was largely worthless and strongly refuted Rousseau's notion that fugues, counterpoint and complex harmony were (in Rousseau's term) ?'une sottise?'. Perhaps because the pamphlet was so well written, another disputant accused Diderot of having written it and Bâton of merely having posed as its author, but there is no evidence of that." Neal Zaslaw and Robert A. Green in Grove Music Online. Bound with: Gallimard, Jean Edme 1685- 1771]. Arithmetique des musiciens, ou Essai... Paris: September 1754.

Not in Cortot, Gregory-Bartlett, Wolfheim, or Hirsch. Octavo. Full brown mottled calf with raised bands on spine in decorative compartments gilt, titling gilt, marbled endpapers. With "Armand Pushman" (most likely the son of Hovsep Pushman (1877-1966), the noted American artist of Armenian background) and a works list in a twentieth-century hand to front free endpaper. Binding slightly worn. . A rare and very attractive compilation of five notable treatises (most in first edition) composed in the heat of the infamous Querelle des Bouffons, a musical and literary dispute waged in Paris between 1752 and 1754 over the respective merits of French and Italian opera. The treatises by Gallimard were among the first to implement Rameau's ideas about fundamental bass, and offer a rare glimpse into 18th-century teachings relating to mathematics and music.

        Political Discourses

      Edinburgh: Printed by R. Fleming, for A. Kinkaid and A. Donaldson,, 1752. Octavo (178 × 111 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, professionally rebacked, red leather spine label. Engraved armorial book plate of Brown of Waterhaughs to front pastedown. First edition of David Hume's principal contributions to political economy and a work closely studied and lectured upon by Adam Smith. Of the twelve discourses, seven are on economics. It ranks as one of the major economic writings of the eighteenth century. Hume's specific contributions to economic thought include the so-called "specie-flow mechanism" and the "theory of creeping inflation". O'Brien describes Hume's two essays Of Money and Of the Balance of Trade as forming "nothing less than the foundation of classical monetary economics" (The Classical Economists, p. 7ff.).

      Mexico: Impr. de Doña Maria de Rivera Small 8vo (14.8 cm; 5.875"). [15] ff., 324 pp.. 1752 Mining was one of the chief industries of colonial Mexico, and after a century of decline during the 1600s, the 18th century saw a renaissance in ore extraction, chiefly due to new technologies that made it possible to rework old ore and to achieve higher than previously imagined levels of silver and gold extracted from newly mined ore. Berdugo's work, a vade mecum of conversion tables of values for gold of different carats and for silver of different values of purity, was => absolutely essential for all merchants and other business people, and for government workers in the treasury department — for milled coins were the exception in Mexican commerce, cob pieces the norm, and raw gold and silver, including dust, were extremely common. The volume ends with the "Reglas varias, para sacar juntos, o separados en pasta, o en moneda los reales derechos, que se pagan a S. Mag. De el oro y de la plata, y para reducir a toda su ley estos metales." An economic work of which we trace fewer than nine U.S. copies, this was printed by Doña Maria de Rivera with a red and black title-page, and with woodcut arms on the first dedication page. The charming cut of a herald cherub appears after the decima dedicated to the author at the end of the preliminaries. Contemporary full Mexican calf, modestly tooled in gilt and with all edges red; recased, new endpapers. Final two leaves little ragged at edges costing a few letters and with small hole at center and short tears at inner margin; old staining and age-toning/browning throughout. => There is every indication that this well-produced little volume saw time "in the field"!

        Port de Mer

      Moyreau, Paris 1752 - Hand-coloured engraving on laid paper by Moyreau. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and a bit of mild rippling. A fine composition showing a crowd awaiting the arrival of a ship at a Dutch harbour. This beautifully coloured print is one of many engravings Jean Moyreau (1690-1762) made of Wouwerman's paintings. Born into a family of Dutch artists in Haarlem in 1619, the prolific draughtsman and painter Philips Wouwerman was primarily renowned for his lively battle and hunting scenes. After an early elementary introduction to the art of painting by his father, Paulus Joostens, he trained with the landscape painter Jan Wynants (1620-1679) and briefly worked in the Hamburg studio of the history painter Everard Decker (d. 1647) around 1638. Wouwerman later returned to Haarlem, where he joined the Guild of St. Luke, which later elected him to the office of vinder in 1646. His elegantly rendered, distinctive works, which are characterized by their luminous colour and detailed, animated treatment of figures and landscape alike, were extremely popular in the seventeenth century as well as the nineteenth century, during which they were zealously collected. In addition to his hunting scenes, Wouwerman's varied and substantial repertoire of subjects included military and battle scenes, landscapes, travellers, animals and genre subjects. Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs , vol 14, p. 723.

        Africa Performed by the Sr. Danville Under the Patronage of the Duke of Orleans

      BOWEN, Emanuel. Wall map. Engraving with original outline color. Linen backed. Image measures 38.5 x 37.5 inches. This beautiful large scale map of Africa is from Malachy Postlethwayt's The Universal Dictionary of Trade and Commerce and represents the glory days of British colonialism and seamanship. Comments are in a conversational format throughout the map. For example, a comment near Ascension Island in the Atlantic says that it was a place English mariners left their letters in corked bottles. Edition is undetermined; there were four official editions of Trade and Commerce: 1752, 1755, 1766, 1774. Engraved by Emanuel Bowen. Good condition but original color outlining is faint. Mounted on linen. The obscure 18th century cartographer Mr. Bolton may also be referred to as Solomon and this is one of the maps Tooley's attributes to him.
