        Der vom Frauenzimmer unschuldig verfolgte, geplagte und endlich ins gröste Elend gestürtzte Gelehrte oder wahrhaffte Geschichte eines nicht unbekannten Rechts-Gelehrten, einer grossen und Welt-berühmten Hansee-Stadt, aus dessen eigenhändigen hinterlassenen Nachrichten ans Licht gestellet [The scholar innocently hounded, tormented and finally plunged into deepest misery by a woman, or the true tale of a not entirely unknown legal scholar from a large and world-famous Hanseatic town, brought to light based on handwritten notes discovered after his death]

      In Commission der Buchnerschen Handlung, Frankfurt und Leipzig 1754 - Small octavo (16.8 × 10 cm). Later (late nineteenth-century) half parchment with hand-written title to spine; marbled boards; [3], 78 pp. Few old stains to gutter and some toning; else very good. First and only edition of this anonymously published German erotic novel, which contains possibly the earliest literary depiction of the "dumb blond" stereotype. It precedes the depiction in a 1775 satirical play of Rosalie Duthé (1748-1830), a Parisian courtesan typically cited as the first recorded "stereotypical blonde" in modern history (see, for instance, Joanna Pitman, On Blondes, 2003). The novel's protagonist, Aquilius, a young lawyer from Hamburg, meets Hedwig, a striking beauty, "the most beautiful among blondes," who captivates him immensely. Although he initially mistakes her silence for exhaustion or reticence, Aquilius soon discovers that Hedwig is unable to engage in any sensible conversation and explaims: "the head is beautiful, but it contains no brain" ("Der Kopf ist schön, nur fehlt das Gehirn," p. 43). The novel contains numerous other misogynistic depictions of the many women Aquilius encounters, nearly all of which are depicted as taking advantage of the noble-minded and polite young jurist. Finally, driven into desperation, Aquilius agrees to marry the widow of a lawyer, who drives him to suicide by her controlling and demeaning behavior. Ronald Dietrich cites the text as a particularly interesting case combining the literary theme of the naive scholar with prejudice toward women: "Den Höhepunkt misogyner Darstellung im Zusammenhang mit dem Gelehrten stellt möglicherweise Talinus' 1754 erschienene und bereits im Titel aufschlußreiche Schrift . dar. Hier stößt man nicht von ungefähr auf die vielleicht erste Blondine der Literatur" (Dietrich, Der Gelehrte in der Literatur, p. 184). With the bookplate of the Dutch collector François Gerard Waller (1867-1934), as well as an earlier bookplate of H. Heerdinck, to front pastedown. Hayn/Gotendorf VII, 525 ("very rare"). Bibliotheca Germanorum erotica, p. 133. Rare, with KVK, OCLC locating only the copy at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Scelta di XXIV vedute delle principali contrade, piazze, chiese, e palazzi della Citt

      Florence Giuseppe Bouchard 1754 - Second edition. Folio (58 x 41.5 cm). Double-page engraved allegorical title page, engraved dedication, engraved map, 24 double-page etched and engraved plates numbered I-XXIV, engraved by Corsi, Franceschini, Gabuggiani, Gregori, Papini, Muller, Marieschi, Monaco, Pazzi Pfeffel, Seuter, Sgrilli, Vasi, after drawings by Zocchi, contemporary red morocco gilt, small hole (50 mm) to blank outer margin outside plate plate mark of plate VII, tiny area of restoration to verso plate XXIII outside plate mark, a most handsome example. A complete set of the finest pictorial record of the historical architecture of Florence in the eighteenth century. Zocchi, a painter, draftsman, and etcher, was the protege of Gerini who commissioned these prints and also paid for his artistic education in Rome, Bologna, and Lombardy. Although he painted easel and mural paintings, Zocchi's oeuvre is richest in drawings and prints. The present series was etched by a team of twelve artists after Zocchi's designs. The four most important squares are shown during a significant festivity and are possibly the earliest views Zocchi made for this series. The broadest depictions of the city are found in the six views structured around the River Arno. They display the uses of the river, the splendid bridges that cross it, and the great buildings along its shore. The other views are a mixture of secular and religious spaces and buildings. They present florence in a fine light; beautiful architecture combined with a lively population. "Consistently celebrative and accomplished, this collection shows a city striving to maintain a placid and prosperous appearance; Zocchi's limpid vision, similar to Carlevaris' and Visentini's interpretations of Venice, endow the city with cohesion and serenity" (Millard).

        Long MS reply by the writer of 'Common Sense'

      1754 - to a reviewer, in a neat hand and carefully considered style, about the great 'Money Bill' debate of the 1750s in the Irish Parliament, saying it was never his intention "to represent the Commons as having in themselves a Right of applying Redundancies", but only meant on "p. 28 . that by the Nature of the Constitution" it was enough for the Crown to be consulted as a Trustee, and that he has asked "the Editor . to new model the Phrase", he goes into great depth about the relations of the Crown, Commons and Lords in repect of the Irish Hereditary Revenues, and who had the right of applying the annual surplus, he argues [as a Whig] "against some of the Court Writers" who take it as "an infallible Maxim" that it lay with the Crown, and expounds a very interesting doctrine, namely that "The King is the Executive Power, He may abuse that Trust in the Application of the People's Money . the Representative of the People whose money it is" must decide, so each case must be heard on its merits, the Commons can decide what is legitimate, and has in the past put people in custody, but it is not competent to decide punishment like a court of law. He then turns to the notorious case of "Mr Nevill" who "surely stands convicted, ultimately convicted [by the Irish Commons], of an Embezlement tho the Bill of Restitution was thrown out in the Council; no Court of Judicature is to take this Privilege out of their Hands; Besides, what may not be Evidence there may be Demonstration to the House", 2 sides folio, no place, no date, c. In 1749 'the Irish Treasury found itself in Surplus . in the Hereditary Revenue, the perpetual grant made to the Crown at the Restoration' (E.M. Johnston-Liik, 'History of the Irish Parliament', I, p. 114). In 1751, the new Lord Lieutenant, the Duke of Dorset, 'was instructed to ensure that any Money Bill . specifically indicated that the king had given his 'previous consent'. This caused great offence, so strong when repeated in 1753 that 'the mob nearly broke into the House during the debate', believing that 'all the money was to be sent the next day to England' and that there would be no more Irish parliaments. In the middle of this, Arthur Jones-Nevill, M.P. for Wexford, was made the butt of continual resolutions by the anti-Court members, for failure to perform his duties as surveyor for the Army Barracks as well as he might have done. Probably the present writer treats him too harshly, and though Nevill was expelled from the House on 23rd November 1753, he sat again from 1761. 'Common Sense' may well refer to the weekly letters published under that title in London, 1739-1743, in the Whig interest. They were started by Charles Molloy, (d. 1767, the Irish Barrister and dramatist), who was joined by Lord Chesterfield and Lord Lyttelton as contributors. One uniform feature of the handwriting is the old-fashioned backwards 'e'.

        Pensées sur l'Interprétation de la Nature

      S.l., 1754, in 12, de 3ff. 206pp. 6ff. de table, pl. veau brun époque, dos orné, coiffes anciennement restaurées, bon exemplaire. Seconde édition augmentée et en partie originale, conforme à la description de David Adams. Rappelons que l'édition originale de 1753 est rarissime, on en connaît en effet que deux exemplaires. Réputées d'un accès difficile, les "Pensées sur l'interprétation de la nature" sont centrales pour la compréhension plus globale de l'oeuvre de Diderot. Il s'agit d'un recueil de 58 pensées sur le raisonnement scientifique et sur les conjectures; dédiées « aux jeunes gens qui se disposent à l'étude de la philosophie naturelle ». L'auteur enjoignant d'avoir toujours à l'esprit que « la nature n'est pas Dieu, qu'un homme n'est pas une machine, qu'une hypothèse n'est pas un fait ». ¶ Adams, Biblio. Diderot, PE2 « La comparaison de la présente édition avec celle de 1753 indique que le texte a été tantôt étoffé, tantôt remanié ... il est donc inexact de prétendre, comme on l'a parfois fait, que les éditions de 1753 et de 1754 ne constituent qu'une seule et même version des Pensées, car cette hypothèse laisse de coté les remaniements apportés à de nombreuses pages de l'édition originale . Cette édition ayant subi bien des changements au cours de l'impression, tous les exemplaires ne sont pas forcément identiques...» - Tchemerzine-Scheler II, 936. - Cioranescu 24097.

Verfasst in der Form eines Briefromans war "Carl Grandison" nach "Clarissa" und "Pamela" sein bedeutendster Erfolg im Genre des empfindsamen Tugendromans bekannt ist. "Der Erfolg und die literarische Nachwirkung auch dieses Romans von Richardson reichten weit über England hinaus. In Deutschland, wo sofort nach seinem Erscheinen eine [i.e. die vorliegende!] Übersetzung herauskam, wo sämtliche Werke des Engländers entscheidend zur Ausbreitung des Empfinsamkeitskults beitrunen und, wie Herder sagte, 'ihre goldne Zeit erlebten', schrieb im Jahr 1760 der junge Wieland in Anlehung an 'Grandison' sein empfinsames Trauerspiel 'Clementine von Poretta'. Im selben Jahr begann Musäus mit der Veröffentlichung seines dreibändigen parodistischjen Briefromans 'Gradison der Zweite oder Geschichte des Herrn von N**' (1760-1762), den er später umarbeitete und 'Der deutsche Grandison' (1781) nanne" (KNLL). Die Übersetzung wird einerseits J. D. Michaelis (G. Ba. In KNLL), andererseits Johann Mattheson (Goedeke) zugeschrieben. Band VII wurde erst später publiziert, hier aus der Ausgabe von 1759. Vorsatz mit zeitgenössischem Besitzvermerk von "F. H. Zoellner, geborner Brincken" und einem kleinen weiteren durchgestrichenen, wenige Knick- und Knitterspuren, gering gebräunt, kaum fleckig, insgesamt sehr schönes, einheitlich gebundenes Exemplar dieses für die deutsche Literaturgeschichte so bedeutenden selten Werkes.

        Pensées sur l'Interprétation de la Nature

      S.l., 1754, in 12, de 3ff. 206pp. 6ff. de table, pl. veau brun époque, dos orné, coiffes anciennement restaurées, bon exemplaire. Seconde édition augmentée et en partie originale, conforme à la description de David Adams. Rappelons que l'édition originale de 1753 est rarissime, on en connaît en effet que deux exemplaires. Réputées d'un accès difficile, les "Pensées sur l'interprétation de la nature" sont centrales pour la compréhension plus globale de l'oeuvre de Diderot. Il s'agit d'un recueil de 58 pensées sur le raisonnement scientifique et sur les conjectures; dédiées « aux jeunes gens qui se disposent à l'étude de la philosophie naturelle ». L'auteur enjoignant d'avoir toujours à l'esprit que « la nature n'est pas Dieu, qu'un homme n'est pas une machine, qu'une hypothèse n'est pas un fait ». ¶ Adams, Biblio. Diderot, PE2 « La comparaison de la présente édition avec celle de 1753 indique que le texte a été tantôt étoffé, tantôt remanié ... il est donc inexact de prétendre, comme on l'a parfois fait, que les éditions de 1753 et de 1754 ne constituent qu'une seule et même version des Pensées, car cette hypothèse laisse de coté les remaniements apportés à de nombreuses pages de l'édition originale . Cette édition ayant subi bien des changements au cours de l'impression, tous les exemplaires ne sont pas forcément identiques...» - Tchemerzine-Scheler II, 936. - Cioranescu 24097.

Ouvrage d'un grand intérêt, qui n'émane pas d'un Jésuite, mais du grand érudit italien Muratori, d'après des documents officiels et la correspondance du père Gaetano Cattaneo. La Mission jésuite du Paraguay est à la fois une entreprise de mission catholique et un véritable État théocratique gouverné par les Jésuites en un système social "utopique" et égalitaire sans équivalent dans l'Histoire. Les missions disparaissent en 1767, avec l'expulsion des Jésuites par les Portugais à qui les Espagnols avaient cédé le Paraguay. ¶ Borba de Moraes, II, p.603 - Leclerc, 1918. - Sabin, 51419 - Sommervogel, V, p.37 - Chadenat, 392 "Relation estimée et l'une des meilleures pour l'histoire des Indiens du Rio de la Plata".

      First Edition collective. Title pages in red and black. Full calf time scales. Back tooled raised. Parts of titles in red morocco. Caps heads slightly frayed; ditto for 6 caps tail. Upper jaw of volumes II, III, IV, V, VIII, IX and X in part split. Many corners bumped. Most false securities have not been linked in volumes. Despite these shortcomings, a good set of general appearance, decorative. In addition to works of poetry, drama, criticism, fables, various letters can be found in this edition of De La Motte and his famous correspondence with the Duchess of Lambert at the end of his life. We note that he was the author of L'Europe Galante and therefore he introduced three innovations in opera: ballet, and pastoral comedy-ballet. But more than his stories or tragedies, although they had considerable success in their time, it must be remembered, for his critical writing of the place that the author held in the literary life of his time, including in the quarrel between the ancients and moderns, De La Motte having repeatedly defended the use of modern, advocating the use of the theater prose and poetry, suspecting any pre-established rule of straitjacket creation. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Conducted in France, they were purchased from the heirs of Cardinal Adam who enriched the collection with its own purchases in the Eternal City; these sculptures have also often been restored by the artist (he was also responsible for numerous antique prints by Cardinal). Five years before his death in 1754, Adam decided to sell his collection. He suggested to potential buyers form a gallery, decorate a library, living room, or finally enrich academy. Coming from a family of sculptors, Adam won the Prix de Rome in 1723 and lived a decade in the eternal city, protected by Cardinal de Polignac, Ambassador of France to Rome. He made contact with a specialty of Rome sculpture fountains (Neptune fountain at Versailles). --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Die gekrönte Dichterin war die Tochter des Organisten, Komponisten und Musikschriftstellers Johann Gotthilf Ziegler und mit dem Arzt, Psychologen und Dichter Johann August Unzer verheiratet. Die Autorin bemühte sich um Bildung und Eigenständigkeit der Frauen. In der ADB steht über ihre dichterischen Leistungen der vorliegenden Sammlung zu lesen "In dem.melancholischen Gedicht 'Ahndungen' gemahnt doch immerhin manches an Klopstock's Ode 'An Ebert' so fern sonst der Messiasdichter den poetischen Kreisen der U. steht, deren dichterischer Horizont ihr Leben lang Canitz und Günther, Richey und Hagedorn, Haller und Gellert, höchstens Pyra und Lange beherrschten. Das ehrlich tiefe Gefühl der liebenden Frau macht manche Albernheiten der bildungsbeflissenen jungen Dame gut". Johanna Charlotte Unzer hatte bereits in ihrem Gedichtband in weiser Voraussicht darauf wie folgt geantwortet "So Schwester! richtet uns die Welt, / und dies sind vieler Männer Klagen. / Doch ist uns auch freygestellt, / Viel schönen Männern dieß zu sagen." - Zu 2: Goed.

        Anti-newtonianismi. Pars prima (-quarta)

      Morelli,, Neapoli, 1754 - Quattro parti legate in due volumi di cm. 23,5, pp. (12) 184 (14); (24) 253 (7): 27 (5) 190 (2): (8) 200. Con 34 tavole incise in rame e ripiegate fuori testo. Solida legatura coeva in pergamena rigida con titoli impressi ai dorsi. Qualche inevitabile brunitura e fioritura alle carte, dorsi scuriti, peraltro esemplare molto genuino e ben conservato. Si tratta del raro insieme di tutte le quattro parti dell'opera del Cominale che, come è noto, si trovano assai raramente insieme, tanto che le varie sezioni si propongono separatamente per l'aspetto monografico. Particolarmente rare sono la terza e la quarta parte tanto da non essere nemmeno citate nella biblioteca del Riccardi che pure descrive le prime due. L'opera risulta così suddivisa: Pars prima, in qua Newtoni de coloribus systema et propriis principiis geometrice evertitur et nova de coloribus theoria. demonstreatur; Pars secunda, in qua rejectis methodo, et philosophandi regulis newtonianis, totiusque sectae principiis indicatis. Pars tertia, in qua virium universi natura, origo, mensura, propagatia etc. enucleantur; Pars quarta in qua atronomiae newtonianae principia expedentur. Opera di rilevante interesse dello scienziato di Uggiano di Napoli, assai celebre nel '700 ed oggi quasi dimenticato. Come era nel suo innato istinto anche nella presente raccolta di scritti si scaglia polemicamente contro le teorie scientifiche del tempo ed in particolare contro la metodologia di Newton accusandolo di appoggiarsi solo sulla dogmatica affermazione aprioristica di una nuova teoria scientifica. Ciò gli valse le critiche dei numerosissimi sostenitori dell'ormai scomparso Newton. Fu tra l'altro ricordato nella storia dei colori di Goethe come uno dei principali studiosi della fisica dei colori del XVIII secolo. Cfr. Poggendorf e Minieri-Riccio.

        Traité du calcul intégral, pour servir de suite à l'analyse des infiniments-petits de M. le Marquis de l'Hôpital.

      Paris: H.L. Guerin and L.F. Delatour, 1754-56. Two volumes, quarto, with three folding plates;in contemporary French mottled calf, spines gilt in compartments with floral motifs, double labels, marbled endpapers and edges. The explorer Louis de Bougainville's first published work, and a milestone in his life. Few explorers could claim such a heady start to their careers.This quite precocious publication - Bougainville was in his early twenties when he completed the first volume - would kick-start his career and bring him wide recognition. By the time he completed the work with its second volume in 1756 he was already serving as secretary to the French ambassador in London, and was soon elected a member of the Royal Society, an unusual distinction for such a young foreigner. A great change of direction then occurred with his distinguished military and then naval careers, and his first voyage to the Falkland Islands; this was followed in 1766 by his most famous achievement, his circumnavigation, the first such French voyage, in the course of which only the Great Barrier Reef prevented his landing on Australian soil. He had specifically set out to reach "New Holland" by running west from Quiros's "Espiritu Santo", but turned away from the barrier presented by the Reef, heading north and coasting New Guinea.From the early 1750s Bougainville had studied under the mathematician and Enlightenment figure Jean le Rond d'Alembert, one of the editors of the Encyclopédie. The Traité du calcul integral, one of the earliest complete treatises on the integral calculus, reflects the influence of d'Alembert and follows on the work of l'Hôpital half a century earlier who had dealt with the infinitesimal calculus and had brought differential notation into general use in Europe. 'La plus grande partie des découvertes en ce genre (le calcul intégral) faites jusqu'au milieu de ce siècle (XVIIIème siècle) a été exposée par le cit. de Bougainville, dans son Traité du calcul intégral pour servir de suite à l'analyse des infiniment petits du marquis de l'Hôpital. La méthode et la clarté qui règnent dans cet ouvrage le rendront toujours précieux...' (Montucla, III p. 137). In fine crisp condition.

Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1754. Third edition, greatly enlarged, of the first exhaustive treatise on the aurora borealis.

There are many references to Descartes, Newton, Cassini, and Euler. Mairan (1678-1771), while basically a Cartesian, did incorporate some Newtonian ideas in his theories. He was secretary of the Paris Academy of Sciences and belonged to the Royal Societies of London, Edinburgh, and Uppsala, the St. Petersburg Academy, and the Institute of Bologna. Unusually fine copy. Bookplate of Pierre Sciclounoff, the prominent Geneva lawyer and book collector. ❧ D.S.B., IX, pp. 33-34. See E. Newton Harvey's A History of Luminescence, pp. 258-59 for an excellent discussion.

        A Sett of Anatomical Tables, with Explanation and an Abridgement of the Practice of Midwifery, with a view to illustrate a treatise on that subject, and collection of cases.

      London: D. Wilson, 1754. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Large Folio. Large folio (552 x 375 mm). [2] leaves (title and preface) and 39 engraved plates, each with a letterpress explanation, by Grignion after Jan van Rymsdyk, Pieter Camper, and the author. Errata on final leaf. Contemporary sheep backed boards, metal clasp (spine repaired, boards heavily rubbed, extremities worn). Text and plates with light browning and little spotting throughout, light marginal dampstaining to 6 plates, closed tear in one plate, endpapers creased. Provenance: P. Manning (pencil incription to title-page). Still a very good, wide-margined copy. ----Norman 1955; Grolier Medicine 43B; Heirs of Hippocrates 826, NLM/Blake, p.420; Russell 753 (recording more than 14 editions); Waller 9012; Garrison-Morton 6154.1. - RARE FIRST EDITION, presumably issued in only 100 copies. "Smellie was the leading forceps practitioner in London, and several of the plates illustrate the use of this instrument in various presentations of the fetus. These engravings are the first accurate anatomical illustrations of the fetus in utero" (Norman). "Not until Smellie (1754) and William Hunter (1774) published their monumental volumes do we actually find illustrations of the foetus in utero which were really observed and faultlessly reproduced from an anatomic point of view" (Choulant-Frank, pp. 75, 284). The life-size pastel drawings Rymsdyk made for Smellie were far superior in accuracy to any that had appeared previously. William Hunter bought them at the posthumous sale of Smellie's collection in 1770, and they are now part of the Hunterian Collection at the University of Glasgow. Very Good.

        The History of Sir Charles Grandison in a Series of Letters...

      London: Printed for S. Richardson, 1754. Seven volumes, small octavo, single leaf publisher's advertisement in volume IV, marginal tear with slight loss to one page of volume III and two pages in volume VI, some pages becoming loose (see volume IV), early owner's inscription to each title-page ("Jurin"), occasional eighteenth-century marginalia; overall an attractive set in contemporary full calf, banded spines with double green and red labels, some wear including chipping to some of the labels, and chipping to head and tail of spines, a little shaken. First editions: a handsome set, the third and last of Richardson's great epistolary novels, in striking contemporary condition.Considered a companion to the earlier Clarissa, here Richardson gave a portrait of a good man, to balance some of the portraits of bounders and cads that had graced his earlier novels. Richardson's patience - and vanity - had been tried by the publishing success of Fielding's Tom Jones, and he took some time to complete the tale. It was published anonymously ("by the Editor of Pamela and Clarissa"), but in the preface Richardson all but admitted his authorship.The novel has not been considered the equal of Clarissa - "none of his three novels has set modern criticism so much at variance as Grandison" notes the Cambridge History of English Literature - but its greatness is considered to be Richardson's ability to present a rich and varied cast of characters, and the freshness of his observation, particularly with regards to the comic figures. Jane Austen and George Eliot both thought highly of the book, and Ruskin ranked it with Don Quixote, though others have found Charles Grandison impossibly perfect and consequently uninteresting.Although showing a few signs of wear, and indeed of having been carefully read, this is an attractive set.The text of Sir Charles Grandison was pirated by an Irish printer who offered the first volumes for sale prior to the release of the London edition. The seventh, and final, volume of this set includes Richardson's lament of twenty pages denouncing the pirate edition and those who profited from it.
