The squadron sailed via the Cape of Good Hope and Madagascar to India, where they visited the chief English settlements and major cities, Ives attending the company hospitals and staff in each place. When Admiral Watson died in August 1757, Ives's own health was also somewhat impaired and he resigned his appointment, travelling home overland from Basra, through Baghdad, Mosul and Aleppo, via Cyprus to Livorno and Venice, and finally through Germany and the Netherlands, arriving in England in March 1759 (ODNB).

        Mémoires de Gaudence de Luques, Prisonnier de l'Inquisition ; Augmentés de plusieurs Cahiers qui avoient été perdus à la Douane de Marseille : enrichis des savantes Remarques de M. Rhedi, & de figures en taille douce.

      A Amsterdam 1753 - 4 parties en 2 vol. in-12 de (4)- XIV-(2)- LX-123 pp. ; (4)-204 pp. ; (4)-204 pp. ; (4)-232 pp., maroquin rouge, dos lisses ornés de pièces d'armes dorées, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin olive, jolie dentelle dorée encadrant les plats, armes au centre, coupes et bordures intérieures décorées, doublures et gardes de papier dominoté doré, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Première édition illustrée, augmentée par Dupuy-Demportes. Quatre figures et quatre vignettes de Le Lorrain gravées par Fessard. La première traduction en français date de 1746 et la première édition avec les augmentations de Jean-Baptiste Dupuy-Demportes de 1753. Cet ouvrage, qui fut un temps attribué au philosophe anglais George Berkeley, est en réalité l'oeuvre d'un prêtre catholique anglais, Simon Berington ; il connut un grand succès et de nombreuses rééditions au XVIIIe siècle (notamment dans les Voyages imaginaires, songes, visions et romans cabalistiques.). Présenté sous la forme d'un interrogatoire, l'ouvrage est le récit d'un voyage imaginaire en « Mezzoranie », pays utopique dont les habitants seraient des descendants des anciens Egyptiens. « La traduction de Milz et du chevalier de Saint-Germain, de cette utopie anglaise paru en 1738 dans sa version originale, est tellement remaniée qu'elle appartient en propre à la littérature utopique française. L'édition augmentée qui parut en 1753 par les soins de Dupuy-Demportes en témoigne. Il s'agit d'une imitation de l'Histoire des Sévarambes, mais l'ouvrage est aussi tributaire de More et Campanella, et peut avoir été inspiré par les récits sur les tribus du Niger ». Bon exemplaire, en maroquin décoré de l'époque aux armes de Guillaume II de Lamoignon (1683- 1772), chancelier de France en 1750.

        Gli elementi di Euclide a migliore, e piu chiara maniera ridotti, arricchiti per la maggior parte di nuove dimostrazioni, premessi gli elementi dell'algebra, dedicati a S.S.R.M. dal P. maestro Giulio Acceta Agostiniano

      nella Stamperia Reale, 1753. 2 parti in un volume in-4°, pp. (12), 149, (3) ; 286, (2), e 8 tavole ripiegate f.t., legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, titolo su tassello al dorso. Leggere usure ai tagli della legatura. Capilettera e testatine in xilografia. Il fascicolo i della seconda parte è stato erroneamente inserito dopo ilfascicolo l, ma completo in tutte le sue parti. Giulio Accetta va considerato un genio del suo tempo, fu studioso ed uomo di scienze che al metodo dottrinale predilesse quello sperimentale e ciò lo portò ad emergere presso l'Università di Torino nella branca delle scienze matematiche e fisiche. Nel gennaio del 1730 fu nominato professore di matematica presso la Reale Università di Torino succedendo alla Cattedra dell'Abate bolognese Ercole Corazzi. Contribuì alla rinascita dell'Ateneo piemontese ed i suoi studi sperimentali ripresi successivamente dal Lagrange ebbero eco fino in Francia. I suoi interessi si spostarono via via verso la fisica e l'astronomia.Fu per questo che nel 1749 fu scelto come membro di una commissione regia che avrebbe dovuta stabilire il criterio dei pesi e delle misure da adottare nel Regno Sabaudo. Negli ultimi anni della sua vita si prodigò perché l'Ateneo piemontese facesse quel salto di qualità anche nell'astronomia. Morì nel settembre del 1752 un mese dopo che il reverendo Padre P. Velasquez aveva dato il nulla osta a che gli elementi di algebra venissero insegnati seguendo le sue rivoluzionarie teorie. Un anno dopo i suoi confratelli davano alle stampe "Gli Elementi di Euclide" dove I'algebra e la geometria venivano spiegate seguendo le sue intuizioni. Haym, IV, 85; Riccardi, 4

        Prospetto della prima macchina de' Fuochi d'artificio, rappresentante il Tempio di Esculapio fatta per comando di Sua Eccellenza il Sig. Prinipe D. Fabrizio Colonna in congiuntura di presentare la Chinea ala Santità di Nostro Signore l'anno 1753

      1753 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1753. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, qualche piega di carta, lieve abrasione nel margine bianco inferiore, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo. Etching, printed on contemporary laid paper, small tear perfectly repaired, otherwise in good condition The engravings have been laid on canvas and framed; after a long work to repair them, they now look almost perfect. Signs of glue on verso, on recto signs of abrasions and oxidations. Chinea literally means white female mule, the one the Kings of Spain offered every year to the Pope as a solemn payment of the income of the Kingdome of Naples. The horse, duly trained, knelt in front of the Pope and to offer him a silver vase with money inside, that was fastened to its saddle. The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as per Charles II decree of the 12 of May 1691, the Greats of Spain were obliged to take part to the cortege, which

Jahrhunderts, Rücken auf vier Bünden mit braunem Titelschild und reicher Goldprägung, die Deckel gerahmt von schmaler Bordüre aus Rattenzahnrolle, Filete und Laubrolle, Steh- und Innenkantenbordüre, Marmorpapiervorsätze, Goldschnitt.

Nicht bei Mahérault. - Erste Ausgabe und einziger Druck der reizenden Illustra-tionen. Laut Bocher handelt es sich bei den fünf Radierungen um die erste Arbeit des damals zwölfjährigen Jean-Michel Moreau le jeune: "Moreau était encore un enfant lorsqu'il s'amusa à illustrer ce petit voyage. C'est certainement sa première production, et l'on voit déjà, à travers son inexpérience, ce que seront plus tard son dessin et sa manière de l'interpréter par le burin." Diese Zuschreibung dürfte allerdings ebenso falsch sein wie die Angabe bei Cohen u.a., der Kupfertitel sei das Werk von Louis-Gabriel Moreau (l'aîné). - Text gleichmäßig schwach gebräunt, sonst sehr schönes Exemplar.

Henry Fielding (1707 - 1754) the author of the famous novel Tom Jones was a magistrate and aside from his literary achievements, he has a significant place in the history of law-enforcement, having founded (with his half-brother John) what some have called London's first police force, the Bow Street Runners, using his authority as a magistrate. The pamphlet describes their plans for ridding London of violent gangs, for dealing with the problems of beggars and homeless boys and girls, and gaming in public houses.

        A narrative of some proceedings in the management of Chelsea Hospital, as far as relates to the appointment and dismission of Samuel Lee, surgeon.

      London: W. Owen. 1753. 8vo., 95 + (1)pp., recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A very good, crisp copy. First edition. An account of the controversial dismissal of Samuel Lee, a surgeon who claimed great success in the treatment of a neglected area of medicine: 'Tho' various branches of surgery have of late years been greatly improv'd in this kingdom, yet the treatment of ruptures seems entirely to have escaped the attention of our ablest practitioners; and a malady so general as well as grievous has been suffered to become the province of quacks, impostors, instrument-makers, &c.'. In fact Lee himself was judged a quack by his colleagues at Chelsea Hospital, most notably William Cheselden, widely regarded as one of the greatest surgeons of his day, who refused to acknowledge the efficacy of Lee's procedures, for which he was receiving large amounts of government money. This pamphlet was published in Lee's defence, and it seems probably that he wrote it himself. The test, though one-sided, provides a good view of the workings of hospital administration in the mid-18th century. A quite different version of the affair is provided in A True Account of All the Transactions ..... as far as relates to Samuel Lee, Surgeon> published by John Ranby and Caesar Hawkins, two other prominent doctors involved in the dispute.
