        Guida de'Forestieri per la Real Città di Torino, in cui si dà notizia delle cose più notabili di questa Città, e suoi Contorni; cioè di Chiese, Conventi, Monasteri, e Luoghi pii; de'Magistrati, Palazzi, Piazze ed altre Notizie generali, e particolari.

      Gian Domenico Rameletti,, in Torino, 1753 - In-8° antico (173x120mm), pp. (6), 191, (1), cartonatura coeva alla rustica con titolo manoscritto in antico al dorso. 7 tavole ripiegate f.t. disegnate e incise su rame da Beltramo Antonio Re raffiguranti, nell'ordine, una pianta generale di Torino, il Duomo, il Palazzo Reale, Palazzo Madama, Palazzo Carignano, l'antica Torre Civica, il Palazzo di Città e la piazza antistante (per una più dettagliata descrizione delle singole piante rimandiamo alla Peyrot). Errata finale. Qualche leggera fioritura. Bellissimo esemplare. Prima edizione e seconda tiratura della "prima [guida] stampata, che si conosca, della città di Torino" (Peyrot). La guida fu redatta in occasione delle celebrazioni del terzo centenario del Miracolo del SS. Sacramento, in previsione del grande concorso di forestieri che sarebbe affluito in città. Nel medesimo anno furono fatte due tirature, di cui la prima contiene 9 tavole, mentre la seconda, quella del nostro esemplare, ne reca 7 (non sono presenti il Collegio dei Nobili e il Palazzo del Seminario) e presenta alcune lievi difformità testuali. Nelle prime pagine della guida l'autore sottolinea la necessità di tale opera, in particolare in quegli anni in cui Torino era "Metropoli del Regno", residenza del Sovrano e, quindi, meta di molti "Nobili Forestieri". La guida è pensata come un viatico di viaggio che conduce il visitatore nei differenti luoghi che si incontrano in un ideale percorso a partire dalla Cattedrale. Inoltre, si descrive Torino nei suoi contorni, ripartendo lo scritto in quattro giornate, come le quattro Porte della Citta' che si aprono verso le "delizie" dei sovrani e le altre particolarita' che si possono scorgere nelle zone limitrofe alla citta'. Al termine dell'opera sono posti ampi indici tematici. Peyrot, Torino nei Secoli, I, 181. Collezione Simeom, G 1. Cicognara, 4345. Schlosser, 552. Manca al Lozzi e al Manno.

        Dissertatio inauguralis chymico-medica de Cortice Caryophylloide Amboiensi vulgo Culilawan dicto quam consensu gratiosae facultatis medicae praeside Io. Friderico Cartheuser [.] pro gradu doctoris rite atque legitime obtinendo die V. Maii MDCCLIII. [.] publice defendet.

      Frankfurt a. d. Oder, Johannes Christian Winter (1753). - Quart. XXXXIV S., mit sieben (verschiedenen) Holzschnittvignetten, davon eine bezeichnet I. G. Unger, sc. Berolini. Titelblatt mit alter, handschriftlicher Nummerierung im oberen rechten Rand. Durchgehend etwas gebräunt. Die letzten 3 Blatt enthalten Lobpreisungen des Promoventen von Paul Ernst Jablonski (1693-1757), Johann Gottlieb von Hackemann (1710 [1714?]-1784) und Karl August von Bergen (1704-1759). Gewürznelken gehörten ob ihrer pharmazeutischen und kulinarischen Anwendbarkeit schon vor dem 18. Jahrhundert zu den gefragtesten Gewürzen überhaupt. Doch nicht die hohe Nachfrage allein, auch die stark eingeschränkte Verfügbarkeit trieb den Preis in die Höhe: Während Gewürznelken heute vor allem auf Sansibar angebaut werden, so sind sie doch ursprünglich nur auf zwei kleinen Inseln der Molukken, Ternate und Tidore, heimisch. Seit Anfang des 18. Jahrhunderts wurden beide Inseln von Holland kontrolliert, der Handel mit Gewürznelken ausschließlich von der Holländischen Kompagnie abgewickelt. Der leichteren Beherrschbarkeit halber — die Inseln waren strategisch ungünstig gelegen und schon seit langem zwischen Holland und Portugal umstritten — verlagerte man den Anbau nach Ambon. Das Monopol der Holländer wurde mehrfach versucht zu brechen, aber erst 1766 gelang es einem Franzosen — die Ironie der Geschichte will es, daß sein Name Pierre Poivre lautete — Samen und Setzlinge von den Molukken zu schmuggeln und diese auf Reunion bzw. Mauritius anzupflanzen, was ihm nach einigen Fehlschlägen auch gelang. Die Aussicht auf lukrative Geschäfte beflügelte so auch die Suche nach Surrogaten, nicht zuletzt bei den Holländern selbst. Krünitz weiß über das in der vorliegenden Schrift untersuchte Ersatzgewürz Coulilawan folgendes zu berichten: Coulilawan, Culilavan, Culilaban, heißt die aromatische Rinde eines Baumes, der auf den moluckischen Inseln wächst. Sie riecht wie Zimmet und Nelken, und ist izt als eine neue Art Gewürz in Holland Mode. Die holländischen Droguisten verkaufen dieselbe das Pfund für ungefähr 40 Stüver. Diese Rinde ist dick und compact; auswendig braun, inwendig aber von hellerer Farbe; sie läßt sich sehr leicht pulverisiren, und alsdenn erst verbreitet sie einen starken und sehr angenehmen Geruch. Die Indianer brauchen ihrer viel zu ihrem Bobori, welches eine Sorte von gewürzhaftem Brey ist, womit sie sich den Leib einsalben, um sowohl gut zu riechen, als sich auch für den Schmerzen zu verwahren, oder davon zu heilen, die ihnen von den kühlen Nächten zustoßen, wenn sie etwa unter freyen Himmel schlafen müssen. Sie bedienen sich derselben auch bisweilen zu ihren Speisen, und in den Getränken, statt einer Arzeney. Die holländischen Apotheker brauchen sie manchmal in ihren Compositionen, statt der Cassia lignea. In dem chymischen Laboratorio, welches in Amboina zum Dienst der holländischen Compagnie angelegt ist, zieht man aus dieser Rinde, durch die Destillation, ein durchdringendes und wie Nelken riechendes Oehl ab, welches, auf Befehl gedachter Compagnie, zur Handlung der Droguisten, nach Holland gebracht wird. Es wird auch sogar in ganz Holland, unter dem Namen des Nelkenöhls, wiewohl in sehr wohlfeilerm Preise, vertrieben, immaßen das Pfund davon nur 12 bis 13 Gulden kostet, dahingegen das wahre Nelkenöhl eben soviel als das Zimmtöhl gilt, wovon die Unze daselbst zu 12 bis 13 Gulden verkaufet wird. Die Privatpersonen auf den moluckischen Inseln haben nicht die Freyheit, dieses Oehl abzuziehen, obgleich die Coulilawanrinde daselbst sehr gemein ist. Den Nutzen dieses Oehls, und den botanischen Character des Baums, welcher diese Rinde trägt, wird Hr. D. Martini in seinem Naturlexikon angeben. (Krünitz, Bd. 8, S. 407f). — F. A. Cartheuser, Sohn des Pharmakologen, Chemikers und Arztes Johann Friedrich Cartheuser wurde in Hallea.d.S. geboren und übernahm nach seiner Promotion den Lehrstuhl für Mineralogie, Botanik und Chemie der Viadrina (1754 bis 1766).

        Naufrage des Isles flottantes, ou Basiliade du célèbre Pilpaï. Poëme héroïque. Traduit de l'Indien par Mr. M******. Tome premier (de deux tomes)

      Messina (Liège/Lüttich ou Paris), Par une Société de Libraires 1753 - Barbier III, 399; Coe, Morelly (deutsch), Nr. 7; Cioranescu, 18e siècle 47422; Higgs 665 (abweich. Kollat. D. Vorstücke); INED 3319; Stammhammer I, 157; Winter, Comp. Utop. S. 16 u. 107. - Seltene erste Ausgabe des ersten Teils (der zweiteiligen) berühmten sozialistischen Utopie. Enthält bereits den größten Teil der politischen Ideen, die Morelly dann 1755 in seinem Code de la nature in systematischer Form darlegte. Coe erwähnt zwei weitere Ausgaben des gleichen Jahres mit abweichender Kollation, von denen die letzte sicherlich ein Raubdruck ist. - First edition of the first part of his in two parts published famous socialistic Utopia. A story in which the author declaims on the return to the state of nature in opposition to the state of civilisation (Pagrave). - Edition originale - Très rare. Morelly se préoccupa beaucoup de l'idée de réformer les abus de la société. Dans cet ouvrage (publié sans nom d'auteur), il expose, sous une forme romanesque, tout un système de gouvernement basé sur le communisme et qui surpasse en hardiesse l'Utopie de Thomas Morus. Il fait le tableau d'une société fondée sur la communauté de biens. Ce roman allégorique fut vivement attaqué par les critiques du temps. Morelly répondit en 1755 par la publication du code de la nature dans lequel il résume, sous une forme dogmatique, les doctrines développées dans le 'Naufrage des isles flottantes'. L'auteur proclame l'absurdité de notre morale qui n'est fondée, selon lui, que sur des préjugés invétérés. Il déclare que tous les préceptes des moralistes anciens et modernes sont erronés et pernicieux. Il pose en principe que l'homme naît bon, que nos passions sont naturellement essentiellement légitimes, que si elles deviennent mauvaises, c'est grâce à nos lois et à nos institutions qui les exaspèrent en les comprimant et qui les violent en leur imprimant une direction contraire à la nature. 'Le naufrage des isles flottantes ou basiliade' et le 'Code de la nature' sont le point de départ du communisme moderne et de tous les systèmes .

      A Copenhague et A. Lipsic chez Frid. Chretien Pelt, 1753. - In-12; 1 f. bl. 1 f (frontispice)- 1 f (page de titre)-[12] pp préface du traducteur-388 pp.-[1] f. b. Pleine basane, dos lisse, pièce de titre en chagrin noir, fleurons dorés, tranches mouchetées (reliure époque). (mors frottés, plats, coiffes et coins émoussés). Seconde édition après l'originale de 1741 (latine et française). Illustrée d'une planche en frontispice et de 7 de curieuses et belles planches gravées hors-texte dont une dépliante, (la carte du monde souterrain) par Brühl. " On notera que nombre d'exemplaires à cette date ne possèdent pas les huit planches, la première édition française n'en avait que 3, et la latine, aucune. Ouvrage originellement traduit du latin "Nicolai Klimii Iter subterraneum" par Eléazar de Mauvillon (1712-1779). Attribué à Holberg par Barbier (Dictionnaire des ouvrages anonymes). Manuel bibliographique des sciences physiques et occultes : Caillet, 1912-1913. Ouvrage allégorique et satirique de Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754), écrivain danois, professeur de droit et de philosophie. Cette utopie critique violemment les institutions politiques et sociales du temps, à la manière de Swift (Les voyages de Gulliver). C'est le premier récit se déroulant à l'intérieur de la terre. Klimius, un pauvre étudiant, tombe sans 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 de Edmond Halley. Les figures illustrant l'ouvrage sont fort curieuses et préfigurent Granville et ses fantaisies sur le monde animal." Bon exemplaire malgré les défauts signalés.

Roth, Bibliotheca Anglo-Judaica, page 222, number 102; Hyamson, Bibliography of Pamphlets Relating to the Jew Bill of 1753 in: TJHSE, Volume VI (19808-1910), page 181, number 24] London, 1753. AN EXAMPLE OF THE BACKLASH TO THE SHORT-LIVED JEW BILL OF 1753 In the year 1609 the naturalization of any foreigner settled in the England was made contingent upon receiving the Sacrament. Although this act was deliberately directed against Catholics, it incidentally would later affect Jews following the Re-Admission of 1653. This disability was lifted by the Whig Government of Henry Pelham in the Act of 1753 to permit persons professing the Jewish religion to be naturalized by Parliament. The Bill was, at best, of limited advantage to the Jews since only the wealthy would have been able to set in motion the machinery necessary to obtain naturalization. Although the measure was accepted unanimously by the House of Lords, it became a pawn in the upcoming general election campaign that resulted in its eventual repeal by the House of Commons. Taking full advantage of the prejudices and fears that the grant of naturalization to Jews had aroused, the Tory opposition fueled the unpopularity of the Act with a pamphlet and broadsheet campaign that warned of an England overrun with Jews. The Whig government was forced by public opinion to give way and the pro-Jewish legislation was duly repealed in the same year that was enacted. The present pamphlet is a response to the pro-Jewish pamphlet Considerations on the Bill to permit persons professing the Jewish religion to be naturalized by Parliament (London, 1753) by the pseudonymous ¿Philo-Patriae¿ [Roth, page 221, number 95]. The present author makes the claim that the Jews employed an unnamed non-Jew to write that pamphlet. Summoning various passages from the New Testament, our pamphleteer argues that the naturalization of the Jews would be in violation of ¿these Divine Laws¿ (pp. 14-15). See J. Picciotto, Sketches of Anglo-Jewish History (1956), pages 73-86; A. M. Hyamson, The Sephardim of England (1951), pages 127-128; A. M. Hyamson, ¿The Jew Bill of 1753¿ in: TJHSE, Volume VI (1908-1910), pages 156-188. Scans available upon request. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        DISCORSO SOPRA IL NUOVO SOSTEGNO che a sua proposta si fa appresso la chiusa di Governolo, per urgentissima, e molto necessaria provvisione del lago di Mantova. Nel quale chiaramente si dimostra quanto questa fabbrica debba essere giovevole a tutti gli abitanti dello Stato Mantovano, in particolare alla fortezza della Città, alla navigazione, alla salubrità dell'aria, e alla pescagione, senza apportare punto di danno alcuno. Ed in oltre si comprendono le cagioni del nuovo interramento d'esso lago, e il modo col quale, per mezzo d'esso Sostegno, si possa fare, che il lago per quanti secoli sia per durare la città, abbia a mantenersi profondo, senza pericolo d'interrarsi.

      printed for M. Cooper, in Pater-noster-row, W. Reeve, Fleet-Street, and C. Sympson, at the Bible-Warehouse, Chancery-lane, London, Great Britain 1753 - Title leaf, followed by pp 1-30 [total of 16 leaves]. [2], 30 p. References: English Short Title Catalogue; ESTCT14653. Trace stained. Modern calf. 8vo. Roth, Bibliohtheca Anglo-Judaica, page 223, number 108. In the year 1609 the naturalization of any foreigner settled in the England was made contingent upon receiving the Sacrament. Although this act was deliberately directed against Catholics, it incidentally would later affect Jews following the Re-Admission of 1653. This disability was lifted by the Whig Government of Henry Pelham in the Act of 1753 to permit persons professing the Jewish religion to be naturalized by Parliament. The Bill was, at best, of limited advantage to the Jews since only the wealthy would have been able to set in motion the machinery necessary to obtain naturalization. Although the measure was accepted unanimously by the House of Lords, it became a pawn in the upcoming general election campaign that resulted in its eventual repeal by the House of Commons. Taking full advantage of the prejudices and fears that the grant of naturalization to Jews had aroused, the Tory opposition fueled the unpopularity of the Act with a pamphlet and broadsheet campaign that warned of an England overrun with Jews. The Whig government was forced by public opinion to give way and the pro-Jewish legislation was duly repealed in the same year that was enacted. Our anonymous pamphleteer advocates the naturalization of the Jews, arguing that it would be an advantage to the Kingdom in general, and to commerce in particular, and that the privileges enjoyed by Jews resident in foreign countries are superior to those granted them by England.

Maurice marèchal de Saxe was one of the most heralded generals of the Ancien regime and was responsible for a string of French victories during the reign of Louis XV, not least the battle of Fontenoy (of 1745) in which his forces defeated a coalition of English, Austrian and Dutch troops. This book, attributed to him, though published posthumously is actually the work of his lieutenant général, Ricouart d'Hérouville. It uses the armies of ancient Rome as a yardstick for measuring the French army in its effectiveness, especially in the recruiting and training of soldiers. Immediately translated into English, it was influential on both sides of the Atlantic; a copy of this edition was notably owned by George Washington.The verso of the title-page advertises a simultaneously-issued work: The History of Maurice Count Saxe . (also Osborne, 1753). The two works are distinct, but owners (including Washington, it would appear from the Library of Congress Catalogue) sometimes had them bound as a single 3 volume work. 12mo (162 × 95 mm), pp. [4], 197, [1], plus 3 letterpress and 1 engraved folding plates at end. Slight browning and dampstaining, the final plate with closed tear at gutter. Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco spine label. Rubbed, label worn. A good copy. [Scarce; not in the BL catalogue. ESTC lists copies at Cambridge, Bodley, Hull and Niedersachsische Staats- und Universitatsbibliothek in Europe and Royal Military College, Society of the Cincinnati and Library of Congress in North America. OCLC adds Cornell, Boston Athenaeum and Rutgers University.] [Attributes: First Edition]

His use of government documents to help write his history was an advance in historiography. Guicciardini served Florence as an ambassador to the Papal States, the court of Ferdinand of Spain, and was active with the Medici regime. Guicciardini wrote the history of Italy for posterity. His analysis and interweaving of political dynamics gives the work lasting relevance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
