        Letter sur le Progres des Sciences

      Berlin:: chez Etienne de Bourdeaux,. 1752.. A collection of observations & dissertations on the large scientific questions of the day - the Southern lands (Terres Australes), Patagonia, the search for the North West Passage, Africa, pyramids, foreign colleges of science, astronomy, parallax of the moon and its relationship to the earth, observations on medicine, animal experiences, microscopic observations, metaphyics, etc. Maupertuis was the foremost proponent of the Newtonian movement in France and a convinced defender of Newton's ideas about the shape of the earth. The first & longest essay is on the "Terres Australes", the search for the Great Unknown Southern continent, and the voyage of Captain Lozier. The search for the North West Passage (5pp) speaks of the immense value to commerce this would represent. In his "Observations", he refers extensively to Edmund Halley's work. He speaks with admiration about the scientific discoveries made by the Chinese, Indians & Egyptians, along with the art discovered in their countries, and would recommend that a "College" be established to bring these savants together. All together, a wide ranging discussion of the scientific and philosophical questions of the day. The first edition appeared the same year, published in Paris. While this Berlin edition has the same chapter headings as the original, there are fewer pages, so we assume it is either a 2nd edition or a pirated edition. 12mo, (2), 78pp, sml. woodcut on title page, factotum, head- and tail-pieces. OCLC: 456087848.

Afin de situer l'enjeu de ces éditions, il est nécessaire de revenir un peu en arrière dans l'histoire : La bulle papale Unigenitus (1713) reprend et perfectionne les différentes bulles contre "l'hérésie Janséniste" en condamnant particulièrement les thèses de Quesnel et d'Arnauld, elle donnera lieu à une dispute religieuse en France qui s'aggravera peu à peu en crise politique majeure face aux billets de confession et aux refus des sacrements à ceux qui s'opposaient à la bulle. Non seulement le clergé français sera divisé, mais le Parlement lui-même se mettra en grève et s'opposera au roi dans cette affaire, qui avait ordonné l'application de la bulle. La confrontation entre le parlement et le roi durera plus de 20 ans. La bulle Unigenitus redonna une vigueur nouvelle à un Jansénisme moribond, provoquant ainsi l'effet contraire. 117 162 53 46 69pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Veduta della Gran Curia Innocenziana

      Paris 1752 - Hind 23 (2nd State, First Paris Edition)John Wilton Ely 176The watermarks that are present are numbers 88 and 89 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1180 and are dated between 1800 to 1809From the important series "Veduta de Roma"Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Batti [Attributes: First Edition]

        Laws of New-York, From the Year 1691, To 1751, Inclusive

      1752. Colonial Laws of New York Printed by James Parker, 1752 [New York]. [Livingston, William (1723-1790), Compiler]. [Smith, William Smith, Jr. (1728-1793), Compiler]. Laws of New-York, from the Year 1691 to 1751, Inclusive. Published According to an Act of the General Assembly. New York: Printed James Parker, 1752. [i], iv, [iii], [1], 488. Folio (13-1/2" x 9"). Recent quarter calf over cloth, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Light browning, occasional faint dampstaining, confined mostly to margins, some edgewear to title page and final three index leaves, internally clean. * First edition. With a subscriber list that includes Benjamin Franklin, Charles Pinckney, and James De Lancey. This volume was commissioned by the colonial assembly in order to codify the body of laws that had accrued since becoming a crown colony in 1690. Livingston and Smith were prominent New York attorneys who followed divergent paths during the Revolution. Smith, a loyalist, served as Chief Justice of New York during the British occupation. He settled in Canada after the war, served as Chief Justice of Quebec, and ended his career as the first chief justice of Lower Canada. Livingston was an ardent supporter of American independence and a delegate to the First, Second, and Third Continental Congresses. He became New Jersey's governor in 1776 and represented that state at the Constitutional Convention in 1787. The importance of this publication is evident in its subscriber list, a virtual "who's who" of colonial statesmen. It appears that fewer than 200 copies of this volume were printed, counting the 169 subscriber copies and three official copies produced for the colony. Tower, The Charlemagne Tower Collection of Colonial Laws 624. Benedict, Acts and Laws of the Thirteen Original Colonies and States 343-345.

      A. Millar, London 1752 - .of those Countries, and a particular Account of the Religion, Government, and Customs of the Natives. Including also, Their Discovery of the Brazils, and Their Wars with the Moors. Gibbs' scarce English version of Osorio's important history of Portuguese exploration, featuring Vasco da Gama, Magellan, Cabral, Albuquerque, and others. Osorio was well-regarded in his day as a stylist of Latin, earning the sobriquet 'the Portuguese Cicero'. First edition in English. Two volumes bound in period brown calf, red leather labels. Worn & frayed, hinges cracked but sound, heads of spines chipped, part of the label of volume two missing; catalogue clipping describing the set pasted inside front cover of volume 1, ink name & date (Nov. [19]43) in each volume, minor damage to endsheets, pencilled bookseller's notes inside rear, bookseller's label in rear of each volume; some staining to early/late pages; bookplate in volume one (see below), evidence of bookplate removal in volume two. Interesting provenance: volume one bears an armorial bookplate of severe simplicity: a blackletter 'E' under an Earl's coronet of five pearls - no doubt were one of sufficient breeding one would know exactly who that was. There were, as far as we can tell, three Earls 'E': Essex, Exeter & Euston. Essex was known to use an 'SX' sigil, but not necessarily exclusively; interestingly, it was Essex who carried off Osorio's extensive library when he sacked Faro in 1596, much of which ended up at the Bodleian; perhaps a later Essex completed the circle when he acquired Osorio's book.

        Lettres de Monsieur de Maupertuis. Nec mihi, si aliter sentias, molestum.

      Dresde: Chez George Conrad Walther, 1752 - Edition originale, in-16; [iv], 228p.; charmante vignette sur la page de titre de Matthieu Oesterreich, gravée par Johan Martin Bernigeroth et datée 1752. Reliure d"époque en plein veau moucheté, dos à nerfs joliment orné, coupes ornées, tranches mouchetées. Accroc à la coiffe supérieure, sinon un très bon exemplaire agréablement relié. Ce petit traité résume de manière simple et agréable plusieurs des théories novatrices de Maupertuis. Géomètre chargé de l'expédition au pôle nord pour la mesure du méridien terrestre, qui confirma l'aplatissement de la Terre, Maupertuis conduisit également des recherches sur l'hérédité et la mécanique céleste. Savant au caractère difficile, il s'attira l'inimitié de nombreux confrères. Invité par le roi de Prusse il fut nommé Président de l'Académie de Berlin, il se querella avec Koenig, qu'il fit expulser de l'Académie, puis avec Voltaire. Celui-ci ridiculisa en retour certaines des théories exposées dans le présent ouvrage et ces attaques hâtèrent la fin de Maupertuis, qui mourut à Bâle en 1759.

        "Carte de Nouvelles Decouvertes au Nord de la Mer du Sud"

      Paris, 1752. THE LANDMARK MAP OF ALASKA THAT GAVE NEW EVIDENCE OF THE FICTITIOUS NORTHWEST PASSAGE Copper-plate engraving with original outline color: 183/8" x 263/8" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 157-158. This is a landmark map in the history of northwestern cartography, charting the common boundaries of North America, Asia and the fictitious "Mer ou Baye de l'Ouest." French cartographer Philippe Buache's map illustrated the recent findings of explorers Aleksey Chirikov and Vitus Bering, a legendary pair of adventurers who led a Russian-sponsored expedition to Northwest America. (Chirikov is recognized as the first European to land on the northwestern coast of North America.) Buache likely had special access to this Russian expedition's findings as Buache's brother-in-law, Joseph Nicolas Delisle, served as Russia's official court cartographer. Nevertheless, while portions of Buache's map were based on firm topographical data, his work remains most famous for lending false credence to the reportings of explorers Juan De Fuca and Admiral De Fonte. De Fuca and De Fonte both claimed to have found evidence of a Northwest Passage, providing a much sought-after link between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The 1,200 mile long "Mer ou Baye de l'Ouest" (Great Bay or Sea of the West) pictured on Buache's map, was supposedly discovered by Juan De Fuca in 1592. At that time, De Fuca claimed he had found a large inland sea in the American Northwest, which was connected to the North Sea by a strait. In 1640, as he was sailing north from the Pacific coast of South America, Spanish admiral Bartholome de Fonte also claimed to have discovered a large network of bays and rivers in the northwestern region of America. De Fonte further maintained that when he reached this area he had come in contact with another sailor who had claimed to have reached the Northwest by traveling west from Boston. Though both De Fuca's and De Fonte's reports turned out to be nothing more than over-imaginative speculation, several members of the French cartographical school long supported the explorers' theoretical claims. Such cartographers included, most notably, Buache himself and his second brother-in-law, Guillame Delisle. Thus, this map constitutes an extraordinarily important document in the history of Northwestern geography in general and Alaska in particular. It also provides false evidence of a passage that only ever existed in legend.. Book.

        [Autograph letters, signed, to several recipients, mostly military colleagues and government officials].Paris, 1815-1839. 8vo (mostly ca. 19 x 13 cm). 10 signed autograph letters in French, plus a draft for another, written in ink on laid and wove paper, 3 with their red wax seals or parts of seals (2 more with traces of former seals), and 6 with recipients' addresses.

      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.
