LA METTRIE (Julien Offray de)
- Amsterdam, 1753. 2 volumes in-12, plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs guillochés or, garnis de compartiments ornés d'un jeu de filets d'encadrement et fer spécial répété entre-nerfs, palettes en tête et pied, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge et vert, tranches mouchetées rouges, roulette sur les coupes. Edition collective des "Œuvres philosophiques de La Mettrie". Elle contient la rare seconde édition de 'L'Homme machine', en 109 pages, insérée sous sa page de titre d’origine à la date de 1748. Le plus célèbre et le plus scandaleux des brûlots de La Mettrie, dans lequel il livre ouvertement les principes de sa doctrine radicale, matérialiste et athée, fondée sur un biologisme intégral. Cette véritable seconde se distingue d’un retirage postérieur par l’orthographe de l’imprimeur sur le titre: "Luzac" qui deviendra "Lusac". La première édition, dont il ne subsiste que quelques exemplaires, avait été presque totalement détruite par ordre du Consistoire de Leyde en décembre 1747. I - Discours préliminaire - L'Homme Machine (Leyde, De l'Imp. d'Elie Luzac Fils, 1748) - Traité de l'âme. II - Abrégé des systèmes - Les Animaux plus que Machine L'Homme Plante - Système d'Epicure - Anti-Sénèque ou Discours sur le Bonheur - L'Art de jouir. (Pour 'L’Homme machine': En Français dans le texte, n°151. Garrison & Morton, n°586. Stoddard, La Mettrie, n°31. Tchemerzine-Scheler, III, 949. Pour l’édition collective des œuvres: Stoddard, n°59).

FRANKLIN, BENJAMIN. - [THE KITE-LETTER - RECORDING THE MOST FAMOUS ELECTRICAL EXPERIMENT]
London, C. Davis, 1753. 4to. Without wrappers. Extracted from "Philosophical Transactions", vol. 47. Including title-page of volume. Title-page with repair to inner margin. Pp. 289-91; pp. 565-70. ¶ First appearance of both papers, one of them being the milestone paper in which Franklin describes his lightning experiment and proves what he had already conjectured, that lightening is an electrical discharge. Both of the present papers were to become part of his famous work "Experiments and Observations on Electricity.." assembled by his friend Peter Collinson, to whom the papers were addressed. The famous letter was also published in the "Gentleman's Magazine" for 1752."Franklin was the first American scientist to achieve an international reputation, with his work on electricity...The most dramatic result of Franklin's researches was the proof that lightening is really an electrical phenomenon. Others had made such a suggestion before him - even Newton himself - but it was he who provided the experimental proof. In 1752 he flew a kite in a thunderstorm and attached a key to its string. From this he collected electrical charges in a Leiden jar and showed that atmospheric and frictional or machine-made electricity are the same. He went on to propose the fixing of iron rods at the top of buildings, masts of ships, etc., from which he conducted the electric charges they collected from lightening into the wet subsoil - the invention of the lightening conductor."His reputation as a scientist was immediately established by the publication of the results of his researches in a serie … [Click Below for Full Description]

SINISTRARI LUDOVICO MARIA
sumptibus Caroli Giannini librorum Sanctitatis suae provisoris in platea Capranicensi, 1753. Tre volumi di cm. 36, pp. xviii, 544; xii, 562; x, 610. Stupende vignette xilografiche ai 3 frontespizi (il primo dei quali è bicromo); numerosi capilettera e bei finalini xilografici. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titoli su tassello al dorso; tagli rossi. Trascurabili segni del tempo, sporadiche fioriture/arrossature; alcuni lavori di tarlo limitati al margine bianco di alcune carte del primo volume. Esemplare ben conservato. Ludovico Maria Sinistrari (1622-1701), francescano novarese, fu stimato giurista, consultore al Tribunale Supremo della Santa Inquisizione, vicario generale dell'arcivescovo di Avignone. Nel 1688 fu incaricato dai Comizi Generali dei Francescani di redigere nuovi statuti per l'Ordine. Quest'opera monia include la celebre practica criminale (con ampia parte dedicata alla tortura e all'inquisizione), il formulario criminale e infine una sorta di manuale di diritto penale dove l'Autore spiega nel dettaglio le diverse tipologie di delitti. Sinistrari si occupò anche di demonologia e omosessualità, ferocemente avversata nelle sue opere. Altri argomenti: indizione del processo criminale, prove del delitto, testimoni, perquisizioni, interrogatorio, arringhe difensive, sentenza. Rara edizione romana. Cfr. Iccu..

Giovan Battista PIRANESI
Acquaforte e bulino, 1753, firmata in lastra . Esemplare della contemporanea tiratura romana, secondo stato di cinque, stampata dall'autore nella propria tipografia di Strada Felice. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio", con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Nel margine inferiore si trovano delle contemporanee scritte ad inchiostro bruno, traduzioni in lingua francese delle iscrizioni incise. Della serie Vedute di Roma. L’opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All’opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall’editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell’autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. Etching and engraving, 1753, signed on plate. Example from the contemporary Roman Edition, the second state of five, printed by Piranesi in his tipography of Strada Felice.

- Amsterdam, 1753. 2 volumes in-12, plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs guillochés or, garnis de compartiments ornés d'un jeu de filets d'encadrement et fer spécial répété entre-nerfs, palettes en tête et pied, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge et vert, tranches mouchetées rouges, roulette sur les coupes. Edition collective des "Œuvres philosophiques de La Mettrie". Elle contient la rare seconde édition de 'L'Homme machine', en 109 pages, insérée sous sa page de titre d’origine à la date de 1748. Le plus célèbre et le plus scandaleux des brûlots de La Mettrie, dans lequel il livre ouvertement les principes de sa doctrine radicale, matérialiste et athée, fondée sur un biologisme intégral. Cette véritable seconde se distingue d’un retirage postérieur par l’orthographe de l’imprimeur sur le titre: "Luzac" qui deviendra "Lusac". La première édition, dont il ne subsiste que quelques exemplaires, avait été presque totalement détruite par ordre du Consistoire de Leyde en décembre 1747. I - Discours préliminaire - L'Homme Machine (Leyde, De l'Imp. d'Elie Luzac Fils, 1748) - Traité de l'âme.

Nel margine inferiore si trovano delle contemporanee scritte ad inchiostro bruno, traduzioni in lingua francese delle iscrizioni incise. Della serie Vedute di Roma. L'opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780." "Etching and engraving, 1753, signed on plate.

1753. Antique print, titled: 'Carte Reduite des Costes Occidentales d'Afrique [ ] et les Isles Canaries [ ].' - A sea chart of northwest Africa, Morocco, Madeira and the Canary islands, as well as southern Spain and Gibraltar. Depth soundings along the African and Spanish coasts, thumb lines and a decorative cartouche. Source unknown, to be determined. These type of charts are scarse as they were actually used at sea for navigation. Engraving, hand coloured on hand laid paper. Made by an anonymous engraver after 'Jacques-Nicolas Bellin for the Depot de la Marine'. Jacques-Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important cartographers of the 18th century. With a career spanning some 50 years, Bellin is best understood as geographe de cabinet and transitional mapmaker spanning the gap between 18th and early 19th century cartographic styles. His long career as Hydrographer and Ingénieur Hydrographe at the French Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine resulted in hundreds of high quality nautical charts of practically everywhere in the world. Depot des Cartes et Plans de la Marine (1720 - present), often called the Depot de Marine, was a French hydrographic mapping organization founded in 1720. Much like the U.S. Coast Survey, the British Admiralty, and the Spanish Deposito Hydrografico, the Depot was initiated as a storehouse and distribution center of existing nautical and marine charts. Eventually the Depot initiated its on mapping activities in an attempt to improve and expand upon existing material.

Pompadour, aux armes de la marquise - (Argens, Jean-Baptiste de Boyer d'):
Amsterdam and Den Haag, Desbordes and Neaulme, 1737-, 1753. - circa 13,5 x 7,8 cm. Together about 2200 pages Contemporary full mottled calf with richly gilt spines and covers, gilt arms of Madame de Pompadour on all covers Cf. Gay/ Lemonnyer III, p.172 and Barbier III, 252. Collection of essays in the form of letters by the author and philosopher Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, marquis d'Argens (1703-1771), who lived for 25 years at the court of Frederic II. of Prussia in Berlin and Potsdam before returning to his native town Aix-en-Provence. He describes and critizises contemporary literature, philosophy and fashions, some letters are very satirical and polemic against the clergy which is the reason why these volumes were printed in the Netherlands and prohibited in France. Complete sets are very rare to find as the letters appeared over a period of more than 15 years. Especially the last parts (17-19) seem to be uncommon and missing to most copies we could trace. Here the third volume with letters 5 and 6 has unfortunately gone lost. - This set is from the library of the Marquise de Pompadour (1721-1764) the official chief mistress of Louis XV. Each volume shows her arms on both covers. The first endpaper of each volume has another engraved bookplate (engraved by Agry) with different crowned arms. In 1757 the Marquise sold the Chateau de Crecy with all it contained and these volumes were most likely among the property sold. They are not mentioned in the catalogue that describes the books she left after her death. - Nice set, only minor browning, a little rubbed, one spine with a … [Click Below for Full Description]
