Illustrato con un frontespizio e 7 f. tavole incise (uno pieghevoli, mappa del mondo sotterraneo) di Brühl. Si noti che il numero di copie a tale data non hanno le otto tavole, la prima edizione francese aveva solo tre, e il latino, no.

Questa utopia critica violentemente le istituzioni politiche e sociali del tempo, alla maniera di Swift (I viaggi di Gulliver). Questa è la prima storia che si svolge all'interno della terra. Klimius, un povero studente, cade senza foro e finisce dentro la terra, scopre il pianeta Nazar e le persone che vivono secondo le leggi della natura e della ragione ... Abbiamo particolarmente notato che Nicolas Klimius è il primo romanzo sulla base di teorie astronomiche di Edmond Halley. Le cifre che illustrano il libro sono molto curiosi e prefigurano Granville e fantasie sul mondo animale. Ex libris inciso con le braccia del signor Baron Barenghien.

Klimius, un pauvre étudiant, tombe dans un trou et se retrouve à l'intérieur de la terre, il y découvre la planète Nazar et ses habitants qui vivent selon les lois de la nature et de la raison. On remarquera notamment que Nicolas Klimius est la première fiction basée sur les théories astronomiques d'Edmond Halley.

With the engraved armorial bookplate of noted legal writer William Cooke (1757-1832) to the front pastedown of the first volume. Cooke's Compendious System of the Bankrupt Laws was first published in 1785 and for many years remained the standard work on the subject. In 1818 he was commissioned to investigate charges of infidelity brought against Caroline of Brunswick, wife of George, Prince of Wales: the future George IV was desperate to end their marriage, and she refused his requests for a divorce. "Cooke's report, which was forthwith laid before the cabinet, led to the introduction of the celebrated bill of pains and penalties against the queen in the House of Lords on 5 July 1820: this accused Caroline of 'licentious behaviour', and proposed to dissolve her marriage" (ODNB). Caroline was so popular with the public that the government was forced to withdraw the bill; George instead barred her from his coronation in July 1821 and she died a few weeks later.

        Das Neue Testament zum Wachsthum in der Gnade und der Erkänntniß des Herrn Jesu Christi. nach dem revidirten Grundtext übersetzt und mit dienlichen Anmerkungen begleitet von D. Johann Albrecht Bengel.

      Metzler, Stutgart 1753 - Stutgart, Metzler, 1753. 20,5 x 13 cm. [1] Bl., XLVI, [7] S, S. 8 - 1016, [1] Bl. Mit Kupferstich-Frontispiz und einer Kupferstich-Titelvignette. Zeitgenössisches blindgeprägtes Schweinsleder über Holzdeckeln (Schliessen fehlen). Einband fleckig, Ecken bestossen, hinterer Deckelbezug mit kl. Fehlstelle, Wurmspuren. Durchgehend gebräunt, teils fingerfleckig. Zeitgenössischer Besitzvermerk auf dem vord. Spiegel. VD18 11083085. Johann Albrecht Bengel (1687-1752), protestanischer Theologe und einer der wichtigsten württembergischen Pietisten des 18. Jhs., widmete „seine ganze Kraft dem Neuen Testament. Als erster durchgreifender Textkritiker schuf er eine Neubearbeitung des griechischen Grundtextes, deren Grundsätze z. T. noch heute Geltung haben." Karl Hermann in NDB 2 (1955), S. 47 „Nach jahrelanger Fleißarbeit konnte er 1734 bei Cotta in Tübingen ein griechisches Neues Testament herausgeben, in dem neben dem traditionellen Text auch Varianten abgedruckt waren, er wurde damit zum Begründer der wissenschaftlichen Textkritik. Wie genau Bengel damals gearbeitet hat, kann man daran ermessen, dass von den 149 neuen Lesarten, die er vorgeschlagen hatte, heute nur 20 nicht anerkannt sind. Posthum erschien 1753 seine Übersetzung des Neuen Testamentes." Ökumenisches Heiligenlexikon (online) „Das letzte Vermächtniß Bengel's war eine mit Anmerkungen versehene Uebersetzung des Neuen Testamentes, zu der er die Vorrede wenige Wochen vor seinem Tode verfaßte, ein von bibelforschenden Laien noch immer gebrauchtes Buch. Auch seine Vorliebe für die prophetischen Schriften der Bibel stammte aus dem Blick auf das Endziel der Wege Gottes, in dessen Licht er die gesammte menschliche Geschichte betrachtete. Die mystische Tiefe eines Jak. Böhme, die ethische Wärme eines Joh. Arndt, die historische Betrachtungsweise eines Joh. Coccejus und die nüchterne, philologische Genauigkeit eines Hugo Grotius vereinigten sich in ihm" Alexander Freiherr von der Goltz in ADB 2 (1875), S. 331-333, hier S. 333.

        Four Manuscripts, including a detailed report on the Destruction and Evacuation of Cap Francais, and the Slave Insurrection in Saint Domingue 1793

      No Binding. Very Good. folio and quarto, 23 pages, neatly inscribed in ink in very good clean and legible condition. Pierre César Charles Guillaume, Marquis de Sercey, French Admiral, was born near Autun, 26, April, 1753; died in Paris, 10 August, 1836. His name is on the west pillar of the Arc de Triomphe. He is best known for commanding French naval forces in the Indian Ocean from 1796-1800. He entered the navy in 1766, was commissioned ensign in May, 1779, and served under the Count de Ouichen. For his participation in several dangerous enterprises during the siege of Pensacola, Florida, he was made lieutenant and given the cross of St. Louis. On his return to France he was ordered to the command of "La Surveillant" in 1790, and sailed for Martinique. He was promoted captain in 1792, and in January, 1793, was ordered to convoy to France all the merchant vessels in those waters. He had collected more than fifty ships laden with valuable cargoes when the burning of Cap Francais occurred. He rescued 6,000 of the colonists. As his scanty supply of provisions and the feebleness of his naval force did not permit of his attempting to cross the Atlantic, he set sail for the coast of New England, where he arrived in safety. In 1792, Léger-Félicité Sonthonax was sent to the colony of Saint-Domingue as part of the Revolutionary Commission. His main goal was to maintain French control of Saint-Domingue and enforce the social equality recently granted to free gens de couleur by the French National Convention as part of the decree of 4 April 1792. The legislation re-established French control of Saint-Domingue, granted full citizenship and political equality to free blacks and free mulattoes, but did not emancipate the slaves, and induced the slaves to return to the plantations. Sonthonax's mission was not to free the slaves of Saint-Domingue, but rather to enforce the decree and to defeat slave rebellions. Sonthonax had initially decried the abolition of slavery to gain the support of the whites on the island. Upon his arrival, he found that some whites and free people of color were already cooperating against the rebel slaves. He did exile many radical whites who would not accept free people of color as equals and managed to contain the slave insurgency outside of the North. In February 1793 France declared war on the Kingdom of Great Britain, which presented a new problem for Sonthonax. All those he had alienated in trying to uphold the French Revolution in Saint-Domingue could now flock to the banner of Britain, which held the nearby island of Jamaica and was giving shelter to French counter-revolutionary emigrés. The white population declined significantly until only 6,000 remained after June 1793. On 20 June 1793 a failed attempt to take control of the capital by a new military governor sympathetic to whites, François-Thomas Galbaud, led to the bombardment and burning of Cap-Francais (now Cap-Haïtien). On 24 June 1793, 60% of the white population left Saint-Domingue with Galbaud, most never to return. Responsibility for the burning is uncertain, though it was done by the roughly 1,000 non-native sailors among Galbaud's forces. Up to this point the commissioners had still been pursuing the fight against the black slaves, whose insurrection had begun in August 1791, but Galbaud's attack led them to seek support from some of the black insurgent leaders in the region. The price for this was a promise of freedom for ex-slaves who agreed to fight on behalf of the commissioners and the French republican regime they represented. On 29 August 1793, with rumors of emancipation rampant, Sonthonax took the radical step of proclaiming freedom of the slaves in the north province (with severe limits on their freedom). It was during this time, and due to the new trend of conceding rights to blacks, that Toussaint Louverture began reforming his political philosophy to embrace France rather than Spain; however he was cautious

        Plan of the Capital City of St. Petersburg with the Depiction of its Most Distinctive Views, published in 1753 - Facsimile

      The plan of Saint Petersburg was published for the 50th anniversary of the city in 1753, "to the glory and honor of Russian Empire". It was accompanied by twelve views of the city.The plan was prepared at the Geographic Department of the Academy of Sciences and supervised by the junior scientific assistant I. F. Truskott. This plan gives an accurate account of Saint Petersburg's streets. It also shows prospective buidling projects and some of the best-known places lost forever. The plan depicts the prospects of the most notable buildings.Engraved views of the city present a historical picture of Petersburg in mid-18th century and have independent artistic value. The illustrations were designed mainly by the graphic artist Ðœ.I. Makhaev, so that his name was extended to the whole plan, which gained the common term of the "Makhaev's map". Along with existing buildings, Makhaev presented those already lost by the time - the Curiousity Chamber, the Winter Palace of Anna Ioannovna, etc.The illustrations are particularly valued, because they were drawn from life, using the "camera obscura", with lens and mirror projecting relevant pictures on paper. The camera was set on a tripod enclosed in a movable box. The device was operated by the artist G. Valeriani.The Plan of the Capital City of Saint Petersburg was published in 100 copies and distributed among major library and palace collections in many European capitals

      London - R. Dodsley 1753 - A scarce and handsome volume of illustrations to the work of Thomas Gray, in attractive leather binding. Curiously noted as 'designs', rather than poems, the title was written such in order to emphasise to readers that the poems were previously published by Gray, and not new works. Nonetheless, the handsome illustrations, of which there are six engraved plates as well as numerous vignettes and embellishments, make for a interesting and attractive collaborative volume. Condition: In quarter-calf binding with gilt detailing and paper-covered boards. Externally smart, there is some wear to the backstrip and extremities. Internally, the pages are firmly bound but are somewhat age-toned throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Atlas coelestis - Reprint

      First published in 1729, this is the most important star atlas of the eighteenth century. When first published, the atlas represented a new era in celestial cartography, recording the stars Flamsteed observed using equatorial and ecliptic co-ordinates.The Atlas coelestis was intended as a companion to the Historiae published in 1712 by the Royal Society's officers Sir Isaac Newton and Edmund Halley, without the author's consent, and was based on Flamsteed's imperfect catalogue which he had deposited with the Society in 1708. The atlas comprises 27 celestial maps centered on the major constellations visible from Greenwich.

      Paris Hippolyte-Louis Guérin et Louis-François Delatour 1753 - Broadsheet (62.7 x 47 cm). Title, dedication leaf, 16 pp., engraved title vignette and head- and tail-pieces and six double-page plates, all by Le Bas after Descamps (plates) and Slodtz/Slotz (vignettes); very light occasional marginal spotting, a marginal closed tear to a plate. Contemporary red morocco, covers with gilt borders with grapes and birds, fleur-de-lis corner pieces, large gilt arms of France in the centre, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt; rebacked retaining contemporary morocco label lettered in gilt, a bit scratched and rubbed. Fresh example of this attractive livre de fêtes, bound in red morocco with the arms of France, beautifully printed with strong impressions showing maritime displays for Louis XV, as well as a fine illumination of Le Havre's main avenue. After the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748, the King of France wished to visit a French port. He went to Le Havre, where a naval battle was organised for him and manoeuvres carried out by 400 sailors. The fine binding was made in the workshop of the King's library. The large gilt border with grapes, leaves and birds can be found on other copies of the book, as well on other livres de fête (such as Louis-Elizabeth's wedding in 1740 and the Dauphin's wedding in 1747).
