        Türkischer Pferdsaufbuz samt einem die nötigen Anmerkungen hierzu enthaltenden Brief.

      Augsburg, Martin Elias Ridinger, 1752.. Oblong folio (450 x 336 mm). Letterpress title page (with extensive description on the reverse) and 4 engraved plates. Contemp. blank wrappers, stored in custom-made cardboard portfolio with giltstamped cover label.. First edition. - A fine series of four elaborately decorated Turkish horses, based on drawings prepared in Constantinople and sent to Ridinger by Baron Gudenus. As stated in the letter from Constantinople, dated 7 March 1741 and printed on the reverse of the title page, the Ottoman dignitaries could be distinguished by the various kinds of luxurious cloths, jewels, and finery they applied to their stables. The officials would vie with each other for the most splendid equestrian adornments, often showering their animals with gold and silver, diamonds, silk, and delicate embroideries. At a state reception in 1740, the Sultan was reported to have shown a parade of 30 horses, each covered in a different kind of precious stone. Such a horse laden with ornament, led into the seraglio by a Janissary, is pictured in plate I: four ostrich feathers adorn the head (a distinction afforded only to the Sultan's personal stable), while the chest bears a splendid rosette belt. Plate II shows a rising "Divani", such as is ridden by the Grand Vizier when dressed in state, with silver chains jingling from its halter and an embroidered blanket under the saddle. Plate III shows another Divani (titled "du cote gauche", but a rare variant imprint from front right), with different bridle and blanket; an elaborately tooled gilt thong is strapped across the chest. The final plate IV shows the "cheval de main d'un Pacha" besides a large kiosk, with a long blanket, rich silver and gemstone decoration and two leopard skins. - Some fingerstaining in the margins, but well preserved. - Thienemann 594-597.

        Ensayo sobre los alphabetos de las letras desconocidas, que se encuentran en las mas antiguas medallas, y monumentos de Espana.

Ziegenlederband des frühen 19. Jahrhunderts mit goldgepr. rotem Rückenschildchen, goldgepr. Deckelbordüre und hübscher Rückenvergoldung. Stehkantenvergoldung, Marmorvorsätze. Gr.-4to.. Erste Ausgabe dieser Abhandlung über Alphabet und Sprache der Keltiberer, aber auch der Etrusker und Phönizier bzw. Punier, auf der Grundlage von Untersuchungen antiker Münzen und Inschriften. Die Keltiberer sollen gallischen Ursprungs sein und galten als kriegerisch. Im 2. Jh. v. Chr. wurden sie von den Römern unterworfen. Ihre charakteristische Schrift war im 2. und 1. vorchristlichen Jahrhundert auf der iberischen Halbinsel im Gebrauch. - Velazquez de Velasco (1722-72), Marquis de Valdeflores und Günstling des Marques de la Ensenada, war zu seiner Zeit ein bekannter Historiker und Dichter. Im vorliegenden Werk vergleicht er die Schriftzeichen der Fundstücke mit den bekannten Alphabeten von Völkern, die mit Spanien in Kontakt standen, und stellt drei verschiedene Alphabetsysteme heraus: das Keltiberische, Tudetanische und Bastulo-Phönizische. Velasquez sammelte auch als erster die Gedichte des Francisco de la Torre (obwohl er sie fälschlich Quevedo zuschrieb). - Ecken leicht bestoßen, sonst sehr hübsches, wohlerhaltenes Exemplar.

        Versuch einer Anweisung die Flöte traversiere zu spielen; mit verschiedenen, zur Beförderung des guten Geschmacks in der praktischen Musik dienlichen Anmerkungen begleitet, und mit Exempeln erläutert. Nebst XXIV Kupfertafeln.

      Berlin, Voß 1752.. 4°. (7) Bll., 334 Ss., (11) Bll.; (1) Bl., (12) Bll., mit 24 Notenkupfern; 2 gestochene Textvignetten von G. F. Schmidt. Lederband d. Zt. (bestoßen und rissig, etwas verzogen, Gelenke angerissen, oberes Kapital restauriert) mit Rückenvergoldung (etwas berieben) und goldgeprägtem Rückenschild; Interimsumschlag d. Zt. (Notentafeln), an den Rändern gebräunt. Erstausgabe; gleichzeitig auch französisch erschienen. - Quantz' (1697 - 1773) war Schüler von Zelenka und Fux in Wien. 1728 wurde er in Berlin Flötenlehrer des späteren preußischen Königs Friedrich II., 1741 zu dessen Kammermusiker und Hofkomponisten bestellt. Er schrieb ca. 300 stilistisch A. Vivaldi nahestehende Flötenkonzerte sowie 200 Kammermusikwerke für die Flöte, deren Bau er durch eine zweite Klappe verbesserte. Sein "Versuch einer Anweisung die Flöte traversiere zu spielen" ist mehr als eine reine Instrumentalschule: Er zählt zu den wichtigsten musiktheoretischen Schriften der Zeit. "Seine Regeln für die Verzierungskunst sind zeitgebunden und z.T. persönliche Auffassung ... Seine Ausführungen zur allgemeinen Aufführungspraxis jedoch gelten für die gesamte europäische Musik des Spätbarocks und Rokokos. Viele seiner Erörterungen über Musikerziehung, Berufswahl und Eignung des Instrumentalisten ... Bemerkungen über das Musikerleben und die Aufgaben des Komponisten und des Interpreten sind allgemeingültig." (MGG X, 1804). Quantz propagiert den "gemischten Geschmack", der italienische Verzierungskunst, französische Architektur und Rhythmik sowie deutsche Kontrapunktik zu einem neuen Stil verbinden will. Mannigfaltigkeit des Ausdrucks, Wechsel in der Instrumentierung, harmonische Abwechslung durch Dissonanzen gehören zu diesem "gemischten Geschmack", genauso wie der "Ausdruck" des Vortrags, den er vom Interpreten verlangt, um die der Musik innewohnenden Gedanken verständlich zu machen. - Erste und letzte Bll. leimschattig, Titel verso gestempelt. Textband am Kopf gering wasserrandig, erste Tafeln ebenfalls mit feiner Feuchtigkeitsspur. Widmungsblatt sowie Titel zu den Tafeln mit geklebtem Einriss. Insgesamt ein sauberes Exemplar. - RISM B VI, 676; Hirsch I, 477; CPM 46, 7895; MGG X, 1802-1804; Borst 42. Nicht in BSB..

        Le Rabelais moderne, ou Les Oeuvres de maitre Francois Rabelais, docteur en medecine, Mises a la portee de la plupart des Lecteurs, avec des Eclaircissements historiques, pour l'intelligence des allegories contenues dans le Gargantua, & dans le Pantagruel.

      Amsterdam, Jean-Frederic Bernard, 1752.. 8 volumes in-12, demi-percaline gaufree tabac a la Bradel, pieces de titre de veau (rel. XIXe siecle, accrocs aux coiffes). Premiere edition de cette ambitieuse version modernisee de l'oeuvre de Rabelais, accompagnee d'une importante preface, d'une "Vie de Rabelais", de nombreuses notes et commentaires, par l'ancien jesuite Francois-Marie de Marsy. Selon Paul J. Smith ('Editer et traduire Rabelais a travers les ages', p. 205), anticonformiste et libertin, l'auteur de cette edition visait a mettre l'oeuvre de Rabelais a la portee d'un public plus large, sans donner pour autant une "froide version", ni "travestir le Gargantua", ni "rien lui oter de na naivete et de son tour naturel". Bien accueillie a sa sortie, tant par la critique que par le public, cette version modernisee ne trouva plus guere de defenseurs au XIXe siecle. (Conlon, Siecle des Lumieres', 52:970. P. Plan, 'Editions de Rabelais', p. 264). Bon exemplaire..

        Difesa per la Fedelissima città dell?Acquila contro le pretensioni de? castelli, terre e villaggi che componeano l?antico contado aquilano intorno al peso della buonatenenza.

      In Napoli, nella Stamperia di Giovanni De Simone, 1752. In 8vo (cm 19 x 25), front. con marca tip. (non censita) raffigurante, entro una cornice ornata, l?allegoria delle arti, 2 cc., di cui 3 pp. n. n., sono dedicate alla Tavola de? Capitoli, grande testatina incisa e istoriata, capilettera iniziale inciso e ornato, pp. CCLXXXIV, 40, nome dell?A. a p. CCLXXXIV, 7 grandi tavv. rip. disegnate da ?D. Antonio F:co Vandi Ing.ro Bolognese del. 1753? e incise da ?Francesco Cepparuli Scul. Napoli?, e così composte: I - Pianta della Città dell?Aquila ripartita nei suoi locali (con 124 legende); II - Carta Topografica del Contado e della Diocesi dell?Aquila; III - Stato, e denominazione presente del Tenimento, e de? Confini del Castello di San Benedetto; IV - Pianta delle Reliquie del Circo di Peltuino; V - Reliquie di Prospetti Interiori ed Esteriori di Fabbriche del Circo di Peltuino; VI - Reliquie di Prospetti Interiori ed Esteriori dell?Anfiteatro di Amiterno; VII - Pianta delle Reliquie dell?Anfiteatro di Amiterno. Leg. in carta remondiniana. Prima edizione di questo interessante trattato sulla città dell?Aquila, completo delle tavole. Per capire alcune componenti essenziali che concorrevano all?organizzazione del sistema feudale è innanzitutto necessario chiarire il significato del termine ?Università? nella sua autentica accezione, e del termine ?feudo?. Con ?università? si indicava una comunità urbana che aveva raggiunto sufficienti capacità giuridiche e amministrative, corrispondente oggi al nostro comune. Le università si distinguevano in demaniali, dette anche regie, quelle dipendenti direttamente dalla corona, e feudali, quelle di diretta dipendenza dai feudatari. L?essere ?università, fra le altre cose, dava il diritto alla cittadinanza di partecipare alle pubbliche assemblee e adottare deliberazioni di ordine amministrativo; il ?feudo? consisteva nel beneficio accordato dal regnante ai suoi sostenitori in cambio della fedeltà, ma, soprattutto, in cambio di particolari oneri che venivano imposti e specificati nell?atto d?investitura. La proprietà feudale si divideva in beni feudali e in beni burgensatici: vale a dire che i beni del feudatario si differenziavano in beni feudali (facenti parte del feudo che era stato assegnato dal re, e quindi non tassabili) e beni burgensatici (facenti parte della terra, del borgo, e perciò soggetti a tassazioni sulla rendita); il burgensatico costituiva una proprietà di esclusiva pertinenza del feudatario come privato cittadino. non avendo, pertanto, natura feudale non era soggetta al pagamento del ?relevio?, ma alla ?bonatenenza?. Il ?relevio? era un istituto feudale, in ragione del quale alla morte del feudatario, il feudo rimaneva agli eredi solo attraverso il pagamento di una quota (?relevio?), che rinnovava e continuava l?investitura feudale; oggi definiremmo il ?relevio? una ?tassa di successione?; la ?bonatenenza? costituiva l?imposta cui erano obbligati i cittadini forestieri che non abitavano nell?Università (intesa quindi come il Comune) e sul cui territorio, però, possedevano beni immobiliari (cfr. anche F. Barra, ?Piccolo glossario feudale e demaniale? in: A. Cogliano (a cura di) ?Proprietà borghese e latifondo contadino in Irpinia nell?800?). Completo e molto raro. Esemplare magnificamente restaurato, con l?integrazione di alcune mancanze al dorso e l?alleggerimento di certi aloni ad alcune carte. Nonostante siano rimaste tracce di foxing ad alcune di esse, trattasi di esemplare molto ben conservato.

Rigida con piccolo tassello in pelle rossa al dorso con titolo in oro. Bell'incisione al frontespizio opera di B. de Grado. Testatine, finalini e iniziali riccamente ornati. Abile, antico ed insignificante restauro all'angolo superiore della prima carta e delle ultima 4 carte (solo nella penultima carta si segnala che l'interazione di carta ha portato alla perdita del numero della pagina). Qualche insignificante brunitura in pochissime pagine dovute alla qualità della carta napoletana utilizzata e per il resto nel complesso esemplare in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. Prima edizione latina non comune (nello stesso anno venne stampata un'edizione veneziana ed una seconda edizione napoletana) di questa celebre raccolta di scritti del grande medico britannico Richard Mead (Stepney, 11 agosto 1673 - Londra, 16 febbraio 1754). La sua opera A Short Discourse concerning Pestilential Contagion, and the Method to be used to prevent it (1720), fu di storica importanza per comprendere le malattie contagiose. Il suo trattato Mechanical Account of Poisons venne pubblicato nel 1702, e l'anno successivo venne ammesso alla Royal Society, alla quale contribuì alla stesura di un documento sulla natura parassitaria della scabbia. Nello stesso anno, fu eletto medico del San Thomas Hospital e nominato a leggere lezioni anatomiche alla Surgeon's Hall. Alla morte di John Radcliffe nel 1714, Mead divenne il capo riconosciuto della sua professione. Egli assistette la regina Anna sul letto di morte e nel 1727 divenne medico di Giorgio II, che in precedenza era già suo paziente quando era principe di Galles. Mentre era al servizio del re, Mead venne coinvolto nella creazione di una nuova opera umanitaria, l'Ospedale degli Innocenti, sia come fondatore che come consulente medico. L'opera contiene oltre ai celebri scritti sul vaiolo, il morbillo e la Peste anche il curioso studio sull'influsso della luna e del sole sulla salute umana, un'opera di interesse numismatico sulle monete coniate nell'antichità greca a Smirne dedicate a celebri medici (tre delle tavole fuori testo sono di interesse numismatico) ed il noto trattato sui veleni diviso in sei parti dedicate al veleno di Vipera, di Tarantola, Dei cani idrofobi (l'autore considera l'idrofobia come una malattia causata da un veleno), veleni di origine minerale e vegetale, l'Oppio, Veleni di terra aria e acqua (due tavole fuori testo illustrano uno la struttura ossea di una vipera e l'altra una scolopendra, una tarantola, uno scorpione e tre licheni velenosi). Esemplare in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione stampato a Napoli da Giuseppe de Boni.

        Decada primeira da Asia. Dos feitos, que os Portuguezes fizeram no descobrimento, e conquista dos mares, e terras do Oriente, e novamente dada a luz, e offerecida ao Senhor Joao Bristows [Barros' First Decade of Asia].

      Na Officina de Pedro Ferreira, Lisboa 1752 - Lisboa: Na Officina de Pedro Ferreira, 1752. Third Edition. Folio. 6, 208 leaves. Period brown gilt tooled speckled full sheep with black gilt label. Text browned, rear cover with wear and some chipping of leather, but overall a good copy. This is the third edition of the first decade of Barros, after the editions of 1552 and 1628. Barros was an "eminent Portuguese historian whose Decadas are one of the major sources for the history of Portuguese navigation., The first draft of the Decadas da Asia was completed in 1539, but due to the necessity for constant revision and expansion was not put to press until 1552. The first decade covers the background from Prince Henry to 1505., part of the first decade was incorporated into Ramusio's Navigationi" (Howgego B34). Barros' "Decades contain the early history of the Portuguese in India and Asia and reveal careful study of Eastern historians and geographers, as well as of the records of his own country. They are distinguished by clearness of exposition and orderly arrangement. They are also lively accounts, for example describing the king of Viantana's killing of the Portuguese ambassadors to Malacca with boiling water and then throwing their bodies to the dogs" (Wikipedia).

        Istoria critica della vita civile. Scritta da Vincenzio Martinelli

      per Giorgio Woodfall Londra: per Giorgio Woodfall. 1752. "First edition, 4to, pp. 10, [2], 311; woodcut vignette on title-p.; contemporary full red goatskin, elaborate gilt borders on covers incorporating stars and fleurons, gilt-decorated spine in 7 compartments, citron morocco label in 1, a.e.g; 8 small pockmarks on back cover, front cover slightly rubbed, else fine. Martinelli (1702-1785) was from Florence, but he lived for many years in London where he published three books, of which this is the first. A volume of essays appeared in 1758, and a History of England, 1770-73. An interesting 6-p. list of 114 subscribers includes his great correspondent Horace Mann, as well as Horace Walpole, Dr. Akenside, the Earl of Chesterfield, and Voltaire's friend, Everard Fawkener. One of the most appealing allusions to Martinelli is in Boswell (1773) who reports that he and Johnson met the Italian, along with Goldsmith, at a dinner given by General Paoli, the Corsican exile. Boswell records Johnson's remarks on whether or not Martinelli should bring his History of England up to the present time; as Martinelli was a Whig, Johnson is less than enthusiastic about the prospect. Boswell also gives an anecdote which Martinelli told about Sigr. Carlo Townshend, to whom this book is dedicated. The present volume consists of 18 essays on various aspects of civil society, including education (and the education of women), marriage, poverty, liberal arts, reading, science, the theatre, law, and so forth. Hazen's catalogue of Horace Walpole's Library (1161) lists another Martinelli title, but notes that this one was not present in the Strawberry-Hill inventory, despite Walpole's subscription."

        The Practical Fruit-Gardener. Being the newest and best method of raising, planting and pruning all sorts of fruit-trees, agreably to the experience and practice of the most eminent gardeners and nurserymen ... revised and recommended by the Reverend Mr. Lawrence and Mr. Bradley

      London: printed for T. Woodward; and sold by D. Browne, 1752. Octavo. (7 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches). Half title, 2pp. publisher&#39;s advertisements. 6 folding engraved plans of fruit or kitchen garden lay-outs. Contemporary speckled calf, covers bordered with a gilt rule and a dog-tooth roll, spine in six compartments with raised bands, the bands flanked by double gilt fillets, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, small expert repairs to spine. A re-issue of the second expanded edition of this influential work by "one of the most outstanding authors on practical gardening during the first half of the eighteenth century" (Henrey). This work was first published in 1724, with 3 plates and a total of 368 pages. The second edition of 1731 was expanded to 408 pages and 6 plates. The present example is the 1752 re-issue of the 1731 second edition with a new half-title and title page. The author, Stephen Switzer, Sweetsur or Sweetzer, was born in Hampshire, and was initially a practical gardener who received his training at Brompton Park nursery under London and Wise and subsequently a garden designer who worked on the planning and layout of a number of famous gardens including Castle Howard, Lumley Castle, Nostell Priory, Cirencester Park and the Somerset home of the Earl of Orrery, to whom the present work is dedicated. Switzer was also the author of a number of influential books, besides the present work, covering many aspects of practical gardening, the first of which, The Nobleman, Gentleman, and Gardener&#39;s Recreation, appeared in 1715.

        The Principles of Politic Law: Being the Sequel to the Principles of Natural Law. Translated into English by Mr. [Thomas] Nugent

      London, Printed for J. Nourse..., 1752. FIRST ENGLISH TRANSLATION. 8vo, 200 x 120 mms., pp. viii], 372, contemporary lightly speckled calf, spine ornately gilt in compartments, morocco; spine a little rubbed, edges of title-page browned, but generally a very good copy. Burlamaqui (1694 - 1748) had also written The Principles of Natural Law, which had been published in 1748, also translated by Thomas Nugent. His basic principle is often described as "rational utilitarianism." Among his concerns here familiar: waging war, including reprisals, when questions of ownership of property are in dispute. The original French edition, Principes du Droit Politique (Geneva, 1751), has an interesting textual history, in that it was published from an incomplete manuscript after his death. Burlamaqui had left his manuscripts to his sister and daughter, instructing them that the manuscript(s) was/were not to be published in book form; since they had the original manuscript, it is not clear how the editors of the French edition managed to find or to construct a copy-text. Nugent obviously translated from the French text of 1751, but he makes no allusion to or mention of the textual sources of Principes du Droit Politique. Goldsmiths&#39; 875.

        Ædes Walpolianæ: 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]. Quarter-Bound Calf. 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&#39;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 description of the painting collection of Sir Robert Walpole, Earl of Orford (England&#39;s first prime minister and the author&#39;s father), "incorporating numerous corrections and additions in the text and plates." (Hazen) When he finally fell from power in 1742 and brought his treasures from Downing Street to Houghton Hall (the family estate in Norfolk), Walpole owned the greatest private art collection in Europe. After Horace returned from his Grand Tour in 1737, he compiled Aedes Walpoliana, which was first published in 1747, and which compared Walpole&#146;s magnificent collection to those of the Continent&#39;s princes and noblemen. Houghton Hall "provided a setting for Walpole&#39;s magnificent art collection, which even the earl of Oxford was compelled to admire. . . . [B]y 1736 he [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&#39;s &#39;The Holy Family&#39; and Rembrandt&#39;s &#39;Abraham&#39;s Sacrifice.&#39;" (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&#39;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)

That latter year he was alao elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1675 he edited John Wilkins&#39;s Principles of Natural Religion, completing what was left unfinished of it, and in 1682 his Sermons. Along with Burnet, Tillotson attended William Russell, Lord Russell on the scaffold in 1683. In 1684, he wrote a Discourse against Transubstantiation. He afterwards enjoyed the friendship of Lady Russell, and it was partly through her that he obtained so much influence with Princess Anne, who followed his advice in regard to the settlement of the crown on William of Orange. He possessed the special confidence of William and Mary, and was made clerk of the closet to the king in March 1689. It was chiefly through his advice that the king appointed an ecclesiastical commission for the reconciliation of the Dissenters. In August of this year he was appointed by the chapter of his cathedral to exercise the archiepiscopal jurisdiction of the province of Canterbury during the suspension of Sancroft. He was also about the same time named dean of St Paul&#39;s. Soon afterwards he was elected to succeed Sancroft; but accepted the promotion with extreme reluctance, and it was deferred from time to time, at his request, until April 1691. In 1693 he published four lectures on the Socinian controversy, partly to clear his own name from charges of sympathy with Socinianism in his previous associations with Thomas Firmin, Stephen Nye and others. His attempts to reform certain abuses of the Church, especially that of clerical non-residence, awakened much ill-will, and of this the Jacobites took advantage, pursuing him to the end of his life with insult and reproach. He died on 22 November 1694. For his manuscript sermons Tillotson&#39;s widow received 2500 guineas. Ralph Barker edited some 250 of them together with the "Rule of Faith" (1695-1704). In 1752 an edition appeared in 3 vols., with Life by Thomas Birch, compiled from Tillotson&#39;s original papers and letters. Various selections from his sermons and works have been published separately. AMS Press, New York, published a modern edition of his works in the 1980s. In his home town of Sowerby, a statue of Tillotson still exists in St. Peter&#39;s church and an avenue is named after him in the lower end of the town.

        Istoria Critica della Vita Civile

      Londra: Per Giogrio Woodfall..., 1752. FIRST EDITION. 4to, 294 x 231 mms., pp. 12, 311 [312 blank], 19th century half calf, marbled boards, neatly rebacked at some stage, title in gilt on spine. With the "Milton,/ Peterborough" book label on the top margin of the front paste-down end-paper. The subscribers include Mark Akenside, Earl of Chesterfield, Moses Mendez and two other members of his family, the dedicatee Charles Townshend, and Horace Walpole. Martinelli (1702 - 1785) came to England in 1748 and this was the first of three books that he published in England, and, as E. H. Thorne records, "made his reputation as a man of letters, and was reprinted several times both in England and in Italy. It consists of nineteen chapters each dealing with one aspect of la vita civile; aspects ranging from education and the duties of family life, through industry, art, and science, laws and methods of government, to la vita felice, and it ends - inevitably for a foreigner in eighteenth-century England - with a chapter &#39;della liberta.&#39;" Among the good and the great that he met was Charles Burney, whose daughter, Fanny, recorded in 1771, "He has a most uncommon flow of wit, and with it the utmost bitterness of satire and raillery of ill nature. His vanity and self-conceit exceed every person&#39;s I ever saw; and far from endeavouring to conceal this weakness, he glories in it, and thinks he but does himself justice in esteeming himself the head of whatever company he is in, and (openly) manifesting that he does so. He is not satisfied with priding himself that he speaks to the Great with sincerity, he piques himself upon treating them with rudeness." E. H. Thorne, "Vincenzo Martinelli in England: 1748 - 1744," Italaian Studies (1956).
