MEMMO FRANCESCO
MEMMO FRANCESCO VITA E MACCHINE DI BARTOLOMMEO FERRACINO CELEBRE BASSANESE INGEGNERE COLLA STORIA DEL PONTE DI BASSANO DAL MEDESIMO RIFABBRICATO ILLUSTRATA DI VARIE NOTE RIGUARDANTI LA STESSA CITTA'. Venezia, Remondini 1754, Prima e rara edizione di quest'opera del Memmo, che ricostruisce la vita e le opere di Bartolomeo Ferracino (Solagna 1692-1777), architetto, ingegnere, poliedrico ideatore di macchine di vario genere. Ancora giovanissimo, il Ferracina costruì una macchina che, grazie ad un sistema di ruote a pale e con l'ausilio di due viti di archimede, permetteva di sollevare l'acqua del fiume a beneficio di un complesso sistema di irrigazione di giardini. Successivamente ideò l'orologio presente ancor oggi nel campanile della chiesa di San Martino di Lupari (Pd), e in seguito il più famoso orologio di Piazza San Marco a Venezia.Nel 1748 ricevette l'incarico di ricostruire il ponte di legno di Bassano (opera del Palladio, andata distrutta nello stesso anno). Una delle sue macchine più note è il battipali idraulico, uno strumento che utilizzando la corrente del fiume, riusciva ad alzare fino a 7 metri pesi di oltre 300 kg , permettendo così di piantare un numero significativo di pali nel durissimo terreno del Brenta. Fu incaricato di sovraintendere ai lavori di ricostruzione del tetto del Palazzo della Ragione (Pd) dopo il terribile incendio del 1756. Dal 1761 venne scelto dalla Repubblica di Venezia come ingegnere responsabile di svariate opere di sistemazione idraulica.. Rif. bibl.

BERNHARD SIEGFRIED ALBINUS (1697 - 1770) was born at Frankfurt on the Oder where his father, Bernhard Albinus was professor of the practice of medicine. In 1702 the latter was transferred to the chair of medicine at Leiden University, and it was there that Bernhard Siegfried began his studies in 1709, at the age of 12, having for his teachers such men as Boerhaave and Nikolaus Bidloo. Having finished his studies at Leiden, he went to Paris in 1718, where he devoted himself especially to anatomy and botany.

Intérieur frais avec de légères salissures à quelques feuillets. Complet. Édition originale. "J'ai eu l'honneur de vous parler d'un petit roman, Mirza et Fatmé, à qui la malignité du public a donné une sorte de vogue. Ce roman est encore dans le goût de ceux du comte d'Hamilton et de Crébillon : des fées, des génies, des enchantements, des allégories ; il y a très-longtemps qu'on est excédé de toutes ces choses-là. Cependant les applications très-satiriques qu'on n'a pas manqué de trouver dans plusieurs endroits de ce roman, lui ont fait une espèce de réputation qu'il ne mérite pas ; il n'est pas absolument mal écrit, mais on n'y trouve ni plan, ni conduite, ni intérêt. Je ne sais si j'ai tort d'être tant dégoûté des allégories que je le suis. Ce genre est si froid, si puéril, si insipide. Qu'est-ce que c'est, par exemple, que cette éducation de Mirza, que la fée du malheur a élevée dans l'île des Amis ? Peut-on se résoudre à travestir aussi puérilement une idée qui, quoique commune, ne laisse pas que d'être philosophique : voilà cependant une des plus ingénieuses allégor … [Click Below for Full Description]

MEMMO FRANCESCOVITA E MACCHINE DI BARTOLOMMEO FERRACINO CELEBRE BASSANESE INGEGNERE COLLA STORIA DEL PONTE DI BASSANO DAL MEDESIMO RIFABBRICATO ILLUSTRATA DI VARIE NOTE RIGUARDANTI LA STESSA CITTA'Remondini Venezia 1754 Prima e rara edizione di quest'opera del Memmo, che ricostruisce la vita e le opere di Bartolomeo Ferracino (Solagna 1692-1777), architetto, ingegnere, poliedrico ideatore di macchine di vario genere. Ancora giovanissimo, il Ferracina costruì una macchina che, grazie ad un sistema di ruote a pale e con l'ausilio di due viti di archimede, permetteva di sollevare l'acqua del fiume a beneficio di un complesso sistema di irrigazione di giardini. Successivamente ideò l'orologio presente ancor oggi nel campanile della chiesa di San Martino di Lupari (Pd), e in seguito il più famoso orologio di Piazza San Marco a Venezia.Nel 1748 ricevette l'incarico di ricostruire il ponte di legno di Bassano (opera del Palladio, andata distrutta nello stesso anno). Una delle sue macchine più note è il battipali idraulico, uno strumento che utilizzando la corrente del fiume, riusciva ad alzare fino a 7 metri pesi di oltre 300 kg , permettendo così di piantare un numero significativo di pali nel durissimo terreno del Brenta. Fu incaricato di sovraintendere ai lavori di ricostruzione del tetto del Palazzo della Ragione (Pd) dopo il terribile incendio del 1756. Dal 1761 venne scelto dalla Repubblica di Venezia come ingegnere responsabile di svariate opere di sistemazione idraulica.. Rif. bibl.

Rousseau beteiligte sich, vermutlich auch auf Anregung seiner Philosophenfreunde der Enzyklopädie hin, und erhielt 1750 den ersten Preis. ""R. hebt in seiner Beantwortung .. gerade das Unheil hervor, das durch die Entfaltung der Künste und Wissenschaften über die Menschheit gekommen ist"" (vgl. dazu Ziegenfuß II, 382).

This extraordinary folio engraving is from Louis Renard's rare work entitled "Poissons Ecrevisses et Crabes, de diverses couleurs et figures extraordinaires, que l'on trouve autour des Isles Moluques et sur les cotes des Terres Australes". The work was published in Amsterdam by Reinier and Josue Ottens in 1754. Each engraving is on uncut, chain-linked, and watermarked paper and features hand-coloring done in the unique style intended by Renard. --- It is one of the most desirable works in all of natural history and features marine life from the East Indies that was virtually unknown to Europe at the time. The first publication was done in 1719 and produced only 100 copies. Thirty of these copies were unbound and sold with the copper plates to Ottens publishing firm after Renard's death. They used the plates to publish an additional 70 copies. This means this is one of 170 engravings ever published from Renard's original copper plates. --- Louis Renard (1678-1746) was a French Huguenot refugee who became a successful book seller and publisher based in Amsterdam, as well as a spy for the British Crown. The plates were engraved after drawings by Samuel Fallours, brought back to Amsterdam from Amboina in the East Indies by Frederik Julius Coyett, son of the Governor Baltazar Coyett. Fallours began his career as a soldier in the service of the Dutch East India Company, and later between 1707 and 1712, held the title of Associate Curate to the clergy.

Louis Renard
Amsterdam, 1754. This extraordinary folio engraving is from Louis Renard's rare work entitled "Poissons Ecrevisses et Crabes, de diverses couleurs et figures extraordinaires, que l'on trouve autour des Isles Moluques et sur les cotes des Terres Australes". The work was published in Amsterdam by Reinier and Josue Ottens in 1754. Each engraving is on uncut, chain-linked, and watermarked paper and features hand-coloring done in the unique style intended by Renard. --- It is one of the most desirable works in all of natural history and features marine life from the East Indies that was virtually unknown to Europe at the time. The first publication was done in 1719 and produced only 100 copies. Thirty of these copies were unbound and sold with the copper plates to Ottens publishing firm after Renard's death.

Intérieur frais avec de légères salissures à quelques feuillets. Complet. Édition originale. "J'ai eu l'honneur de vous parler d'un petit roman, Mirza et Fatmé, à qui la malignité du public a donné une sorte de vogue. Ce roman est encore dans le goût de ceux du comte d'Hamilton et de Crébillon : des fées, des génies, des enchantements, des allégories ; il y a très-longtemps qu'on est excédé de toutes ces choses-là. Cependant les applications très-satiriques qu'on n'a pas manqué de trouver dans plusieurs endroits de ce roman, lui ont fait une espèce de réputation qu'il ne mérite pas ; il n'est pas absolument mal écrit, mais on n'y trouve ni plan, ni conduite, ni intérêt. Je ne sais si j'ai tort d'être tant dégoûté des allégories que je le suis. Ce genre est si froid, si puéril, si insipide. Qu'est-ce que c'est, par exemple, que cette éducation de Mirza, que la fée du malheur a élevée dans l'île des Amis ?
