        Die Tugend besungen.

      Halle Christoph Peter Franken Format: 8° [32] S Mit großem Holzschnitt-Monogramm auf dem Titel und typographischem Motto "Virtus pressa non oppressa" Grüner Lackpapiereinband der Zeit mit hs Rückenschild an Kapitalen und Kanten etwas bestoßen berieben kaum fleckig 1755 - Weltweit nur zwei Exemplare bekannt, ein Rarissimum*** Erste und einzige Ausgabe des überaus seltenen Drucks von dem nicht weiter fassbaren Autor Carl Heinrich Friedrich Bienrod, der weltweit nur in zwei Bibliotheken über das KVK und den Worldcat nachzuweisen ist: in der Staatsbibliothek Bamberg (Sigel: 22; davon der Eintrag im VD18) sowie in der Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Sachsen-Anhalt. Bienrod besingt in seinem 88 Sonetten zu je 10 Zeilen auf recht geschickte, literarisch nicht unbedeutende Weise die Tugend: "Laßt mich der Heldin Ruhm besingen, / Die stets gewohnt sich zu bezwingen / Die größten Siege übersteigt, / Die wenn ihr jetzt ein Glück begegnet / Und bald die Trübsal auf sie regnet / Sich immer gleich und aufrecht zeigt; / Die auch der Tod nicht wird besiegen, / Wenn er die graue Sichel dreht / Und die auch da nicht wird erliegen, / Wo sonst nichts zu hoffen steht." Die Initiale „L" ist mit einer kleinen Rokoko-Holzschnitt-Vignette geziert, die einen fliegenden Putto mit Krone zeigt, darüber ein größeres Kopfstück mit Muschel-Kartusche und einer Figur, wohl einer Allegorie des Dichters, mit einem großen Buch unter dem Arm. Sehr sauber und durchgehend wohlerhalten. – Vorgebunden zwei weitere Werke: (Albrecht) von Haller. Gedichte des Herrn von Haller. Sechste Auflage. Mit den verschiedenen Lesarten aller vorigen vermehrt. Zürich, Heidegger und Compagnie, 1750. [40], 272 S. Mit gestochener Titelvignette.

Die schöne Titelvignette zeigt ganz in Gessnerscher Manier einen Hirten mit seinen Schafen in arkadischer Landschaft vor einer interessanten vegetabilen Rokoko-Kartusche, die sich aus Blättern und Borken ergibt.

Nice copy.Eugene of Savoy was one of the most illustrious military of its time. Suffering the disgrace of Louis XIV he inherited from his mother, he began, after the king's refusal, in the Empire army. From 22 years after the war of the Holy League (Empire, Poland and Venice) against the Turks, he was made a major general. Its various campaigns, especially against France during the Spanish succession, against Italy and the Turks led to his being chief, then at the end of his life governor of the Netherlands. 1 Napoleon considered him one of the 7 great generals of history.

         L'adepte moderne, ou le vrai secret des franc-maçons Histoire intéressante.

      imprimé cette année à Londres, aux dépens de l'auteur, (v. 1755), pet. in 8°, de 1f. 229pp., pl. veau marbré époque, dos lisse orné, petite restauration à l'angle supérieur de qq. ff. sinon bel exemplaire. Très rare édition originale de ce roman alchimique. En fait le secret des Francs-Maçons serait la recette de la pierre philosophale permettant de transformer le plomb en or. ¶ Le cat. Ouvaroff (n°597) précise : "Il n'est nullement question des francs-maçons dans ce volume, c'est un roman sur la transmutation des métaux, dont le titre : Histoire intéressante, est exact." commentaire repris par Fesch p.26 - De nombreuses inconnues subsistent autour de ce texte. Le lieu de publication, sans doute fictif, serait la France, d'après le matériel typographique. Wolfstieg (41.487) pense que "L'adepte moderne" serait une traduction par "Mme Gut d[as] i[st] Beaumont" d'un roman allemand intitulé "Der neue Goldmacher" et paru pour la première fois dans un recueil en 1757. Mais une étude de Mme V.G. Mylne démontre que "Der neue Goldmacher" est la traduction de "L'adepte moderne", et non l'inverse. (cf. Martin & Mylne n°75.32) Quant à la date de publication, elle la situe vers 1755 selon la chronologie des événements du roman, réfutant ainsi les datations fantaisistes des diverses bibliographies : (Wolfstieg daté de 1777 ; Taute de 1780 ; Caillet de 1747 ; Fesch de 1747 ou 1750; cat. Ouvaroff de 1747). cf. V.G. Mylne, "The Bibliographer's Last Resort : Reading the Text", 18th-c. Fiction, vol.5, n.1, oct. 1992 - Caillet n°63 - Inconnu de Barbier et Quérard - Pas dans les 2 cat.

        Essai sur la Nature du Commerce en Général.

      Fletcher Gyles, London [but probably Paris] 1755 - The exceptionally fine La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt copy in untouched armorial binding of the earliest treatise on modern economics. Cantillon is the "founding father of modern economics" (Rothbard) and the Essai has been declared "more emphatically than any other single work, the cradle of political economy" (Jevons), and "the most systematic statement of economic principles before the Wealth of Nations" (Roll). It "is notable for its model building, its analysis of market forces and the role of the entrepreneur, its outline of the circular flow of income, and its monetary theory. Cantillon was the first real model builder in economics" (ODNB). The book was chosen among the 400 most influential books ever written in French in the 1990 exhibition at the Bibliothèque Nationale, En français dans le texte, no. 159. Provenance: A superb copy bound at the time for François-Alexandre-Frédéric, duc de La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt, with his coat of arms gilt on sides and the armorial engraved ex-libris of the Bibliothèque de Liancourt. A philanthropist, traveller, and statesman, the Duke de La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt was one of the leading figures of the end of the 18th century. As a liberal, he participated in the French Revolution from the outset, remaining loyal to the King. He is famous for his answer to Louis XVI who had asked him on 14 July 1789 ‘Is it a revolt?’: ‘No, Your Majesty, it is a revolution’. He fled France and found refuge in England before travelling to the United States. He attempted to save the royal family. Back in France after the Revolution, he continued to promote his liberal ideas, helping the poor and creating a school. Two other copies with the coat of arms of the La Rochefoucauld family have appeared on the market in the last twenty years; they both came from the La Roche-Guyon branch of the family. This copy is the only one with the Liancourt ex-libris, stating its provenance. It is hard to imagine a better copy.Born in Ireland, Cantillon (1680-1734) was active in banking in Paris for years. A man among boys in business, he made a fortune from John Law’s scheme. "Bankers fell like autumn leaves in Paris between 1717 and 1720, and as Higgs remarks, ‘Their losses were probably very heavy in 1720 and much of them went into Cantillon’s pocket’" (New Palgrave). He successfully defended himself in numerous lawsuits brought by victims of the Mississippi Bubble, but he eventually deemed it prudent to depart for England. In 1734 he was murdered by his recently-dismissed cook, who evidently robbed him and burned his house down, destroying his manuscripts among other things. While in Paris, Cantillon had written the Essai in English and translated it into French for a friend. That friend arranged for its publication more than two decades later in 1755. Cantillon covers, in analysis far surpassing that of his contemporaries, currency, foreign exchanges, banking, credit, and the international specie flow mechanism (which Schumpeter hailed as "almost faultlessly described"). He made pioneering contributions to what was later known as the Malthusian theory of population, the theory of the allocation of surplus, and the distinction between market price and natural price as an integral part of an entire economic model. In the Essai Cantillon coined the term entrepreneur, which he observed "entails bearing the risk of buying at certain prices and selling at uncertain prices" (Cuervo). 12mo (165 x 93mm), pp. [4], [1] 2-430 [6:index], contemporary mottled calf, sides with gilt-stamped arms of the duc de Liancourt, gilt spine with raised bands, red morocco label and repeated fleurons, red edges. Provenance: François-Alexandre-Fréderic de la Rochefoucauld, duc de Liancourt, (1747-1827; binding and engraved armorial bookplate). An exceptionally fresh and crisp copy.

        Code de la Nature, ou le véritable Esprit de ses Loix, De tout tems négligé ou méconnu.

      "Par-tout" [Paris?]: chez le Vrai Sage, 1755. Octavo, title in black and red with a vignette; contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments. Rare and influential: the first edition of this major work, in which a severe concept of economic equality introduces an entirely new utopian model. Effectively the blueprint for a fully-fledged communist society, this early and extreme socialist utopia is an extension of some of the ideas first circulated in the same author's Naufrage des Isles Flottantes: Hartig called it the 'oeuvre mâitresse de la pensée utopique du XVIII siècle.' The Code de la Nature is an uncompromising text. Working from the position that Avarice is the root of all evil, Morelly argues for the absolute abolition of private property, complete state control of production and consumption, and an uncompromising and mathematical regimentation of society based on enumerations of the fundamental unit of ten.The identity of the author is a puzzle: recent research suggests that there is some doubt as to whether Morelly actually existed; if so, it is also unclear who exactly may have used the name as a pseudonym. No birth or death certificates for Morelly survive, and there is no record of anyone in the eighteenth century ever mentioning that they met him. It has been suggested that "Morelly" may actually have been either Toussaint, or even perhaps Diderot to whom the work has quite often been attributed. Whoever "Morelly" may have been, his work was better known in later centuries than in his own. The rediscovery of Morelly's "code" in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries led to his being represented as a significant forerunner of socialism. Its modern significance lies more in its effect on later political thinkers, many openly acknowledging their debt to the text: Babeuf referred to it with respect, and many nineteenth century writers admitted its influence, including Fourier, Cabet, Proudhon, Louis Blanc, Engels and Marx, who quoted Morelly on the dangers of private ownership.For Morelly and his identity, see: Jean de Viguerie, Histoire et Dictionnaire du Temps des Lumières, 1995; N. Wagner, "Etat actuel de nos connaissances sur Morelly", in Revue: Dix-Huitième Siècle, 1978, n°10, pp 259-268; Guy Antonetti, "Etienne Gabriel Morelly et sa famille"; " L'écrivain et ses protecteurs", in Revue d'Histoire de Littérature Française, 1983-3;1984-1. Slight wear to joints, otherwise in excellent condition.

Première édition française, l'originale anglaise ayant paru en 1752. Les Observations constituent le principal ouvrage du médecin britannique Pringle. Elles marquèrent un jalon important dans l'histoire de la médecine militaire moderne. L'auteur y expose, tout d'abord, des situations concrètes de maladies et d'épidémies, puis propose une approche générale "des maladies des armées", pour enfin terminer son traité sur des considérations pratiques destinées aux médecins militaires. Une figure sur bois dans le texte (t. I, p. 170) représentant un tuyau composant le ventilateur du docteur Hales, utilisé à l'origine pour pomper l'air des navires et élégamment employé pour assainir l'air dans les hôpitaux miliaires. John Pringle (1707-1782) fut médecin des troupes britanniques durant la guerre de Succession d'Autriche ; il devint ensuite médecin du roi. Il est considéré comme le fondateur de la médecine militaire moderne.

To which is annexed, a new manner of engraving, or mezzotinto, communicated by His Highness Prince Rupert to the author of this treatise, John Evelyn, Esq

      Second Edition London Printed for J. Payne, at Pope's Head in Pater noster-row, M.DCC.LV [1755] Small 8vo; [4], xxxvi,140pp, including a life of Evelyn; four pages of corrections, additions, errata and directions to the binder, and "An account of Signor Giacomo Favi" by Samuel de Sorbière, with two copper-engraved plates (one, the frontispiece portrait of Evelyn) and a magnificent folding mezzotint. Bound in full contemporary calf, boards ruled in gilt, spine divided into six compartments by aised bands edged in gilt, red leather lettering piece gilt chipped on one corner. An excellent, unsophisticated copy, internally bright and fresh, save for offsetting to the first and final few leaves. Keynes 34. Bland, History of Book Illustration, p. 191. ESTC Citation No. T113409. Near Fine The first book on the appreciation of prints rather than a technical manual for producing them. In this small work on engraving and etching, first published in 1662 (see Wither to Prior 344), Evelyn also announced a new printmaking process, the mezzotint, "Invented, and communicated by his Highnesse Prince Rupert, Count Palatine of Rhyne, &c.'." (The sumptuous mezzotint in this edition is an "exact copy"?though reduced by a tenth?of a detail from Rupert's largest and most famous work, "The Great Executioner," considered one of the genre's finest examples. According to Keynes, referring to the first edition, this "print has been the prey of collectors of mezzotints and is missing from many copies of the book. When present, it enhances the price of the volume quite out of proportion to its rarity or intrinsic value." In this second edition, the mezzotint is Richard Houston's copy, which Keynes pronounces "good," and which is often surreptitiously inserted in the first edition in place of Prince Rupert's original.) From Evelyn's diary and papers, now in the British Library, we know the precise date when Rupert showed the technique to Evelyn: February 24, 1661. However, Rupert and Evelyn conspired to keep details of the process secret, lest it be "prostituted" at too cheap a rate.

        Essai sur la Nature du Commerce en Général.

      First edition London [but probably Paris]: Fletcher Gyles, 1755. The exceptionally fine La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt copy in untouched armorial binding of the earliest treatise on modern economics. Cantillon is the "founding father of modern economics" (Rothbard) and the Essai has been declared "more emphatically than any other single work, the cradle of political economy" (Jevons), and "the most systematic statement of economic principles before the Wealth of Nations" (Roll). It "is notable for its model building, its analysis of market forces and the role of the entrepreneur, its outline of the circular flow of income, and its monetary theory. Cantillon was the first real model builder in economics" (ODNB). The book was chosen among the 400 most influential books ever written in French in the 1990 exhibition at the Bibliothèque Nationale, En français dans le texte, no. 159. Provenance: A superb copy bound at the time for François-Alexandre-Frédéric, duc de La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt, with his coat of arms gilt on sides and the armorial engraved ex-libris of the Bibliothèque de Liancourt. A philanthropist, traveller, and statesman, the Duke de La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt was one of the leading figures of the end of the 18th century. As a liberal, he participated in the French Revolution from the outset, remaining loyal to the King. He is famous for his answer to Louis XVI who had asked him on 14 July 1789 'Is it a revolt?': 'No, Your Majesty, it is a revolution'. He fled France and found refuge in England before travelling to the United States. He attempted to save the royal family. Back in France after the Revolution, he continued to promote his liberal ideas, helping the poor and creating a school. Two other copies with the coat of arms of the La Rochefoucauld family have appeared on the market in the last twenty years; they both came from the La Roche-Guyon branch of the family. This copy is the only one with the Liancourt ex-libris, stating its provenance. It is hard to imagine a better copy. Born in Ireland, Cantillon (1680-1734) was active in banking in Paris for years. A man among boys in business, he made a fortune from John Law's scheme. "Bankers fell like autumn leaves in Paris between 1717 and 1720, and as Higgs remarks, 'Their losses were probably very heavy in 1720 and much of them went into Cantillon's pocket'" (New Palgrave). He successfully defended himself in numerous lawsuits brought by victims of the Mississippi Bubble, but he eventually deemed it prudent to depart for England. In 1734 he was murdered by his recently-dismissed cook, who evidently robbed him and burned his house down, destroying his manuscripts among other things. While in Paris, Cantillon had written the Essai in English and translated it into French for a friend. That friend arranged for its publication more than two decades later in 1755. Cantillon covers, in analysis far surpassing that of his contemporaries, currency, foreign exchanges, banking, credit, and the international specie flow mechanism (which Schumpeter hailed as "almost faultlessly described"). He made pioneering contributions to what was later known as the Malthusian theory of population, the theory of the allocation of surplus, and the distinction between market price and natural price as an integral part of an entire economic model. In the Essai Cantillon coined the term entrepreneur, which he observed "entails bearing the risk of buying at certain prices and selling at uncertain prices" (Cuervo). 12mo (165 x 93mm), pp. [4], [1] 2-430 [6:index], contemporary mottled calf, sides with gilt-stamped arms of the duc de Liancourt, gilt spine with raised bands, red morocco label and repeated fleurons, red edges. Provenance: François-Alexandre-Fréderic de la Rochefoucauld, duc de Liancourt, (1747-1827; binding and engraved armorial bookplate). An exceptionally fresh and crisp copy.

        Veduta del Sepolcro di Caio Cestio

      1755. - PRIMO STATO DI SEI - Acquaforte e bulino, 1755 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare della contemporanea tiratura romana. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con pieni margini, lieve traccia della consueta piega centrale, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione. Esemplare in barbe nel rarissimo primo stato di sei, avanti i ritocchi nel cielo e l'indrizzo degli editori Bouchard e Gravier. 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. - THE FIRST STATE OF SIX - Etching and engraving, 175, signed on plate at the lower right. Example from the contemporary Roman Edition. A very good impression, printed on contemporary strong laid paper without watermark, with margins, very good condition. The first state of six, before the retouches of the plate and the address of Bouchard and Gravier. Very rare. Taken from Vedute di Roma; the whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building. Hind 35 I/VI; Focillon 810. 540 405

        Elemens de Docimastique ou de l' Art des Essais, divisés en deux parties, la première théorique et la seconde pratique. Traduit du latin de M. Cramer. Complet en 4 volumes

      A Paris chez Briasson 1755 - Paris, Chez Briasson, 1755. Elemens de docimastique traduit de M. CRAMER par Jacques François de Villiers. Edition originale (l'édition latine est parue en 1739). Suivant "le journal des savans" de décembre 1755, on regarde depuis longtemps cet ouvrage comme le meilleur publié sur cette partie de la chimie qui concerne l'essai des minéraux, c'est-à-dire, connaître la nature des diverses substances qui s'y trouvent combinées. L'intérêt est tel que le roi, désirant porter au plus haut point les connaissances sur la métallurgie et l'exploitation des mines, créera en 1778 , en l'Hôtel des monnaies à Paris, une chaire de métallurgie docimastique. L'ouvrage comprend 4 volumes (10 x 16.5 cm),432;439;454;347 pages. Bien complet de ses 6 PLANCHES DEPLIANTES très commentées tome 2. Reliure d'époque plein veau moucheté, dos orné de faux caissons à fleurons dorés, pièces de titre bordeaux, pièces de tomaison noires, toutes tranches rouges. Dos des tomes 1 et 4 fendus et émoussés en tête et en pied ; quelques épidermures. Pour le tome 1, léger manque pour la page de faux-titre. Pour l'ensemble, la reliure est bien solide et l'intérieur très frais. A noter : ex-libris au dos des premiers plats et sur les derniers plats, une étiquette ancienne (1919) de bibliothèque.

Contemporary mottled calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Ad 1: ESTC T86984; Martin-Waller 7753 E; STCN 306067978. Ad 1: First edition of the first of the revolutionary works of Anacharsis Cloots (1755-1794), a German utopist from Berlin. It is written in defence of Holbach, against the violent attack of Abbé Bergier. It is a parody on the latter's La Certitude des preuves du Christianisme, which was in itself a reply to Fréret's Examen critique des apologistes de la religion chrétienne. Cloots showes that the arguments used by Bergier to prove that Christianity was the true religion, could also be used to prove that Islam was the true religion.Ad 2: First edition of a "Letter on the Jews", which is often found added at the end of La Certitude des preuves..., because in essence it contains the same arguments in disclaiming any "raison d'être" for the Jewish religion as the author presented in La Certitude for both the Mohammedan and Christian religions.Binding very slightly rubbed along the extremities. Otherwise in very good condition, with only a few small spots and a small maginal water stain on first few leaves.

Ouvrage dans lequel l'abbé Étienne de Condillac critique les théories de Descartes et montre le caractère spiritualiste de sa doctrine : pour lui, les animaux ont une âme tout comme les hommes. Condillac (1714-1780) étudia à Lyon puis à Paris : il est licencié en théologie en 1740, puis ordonné prêtre en 1741. Il fut lié à Rousseau, Diderot et avec les philosophes de l'Encyclopédie, sans collaborer directement à celle-ci. Il doit sa célébrité à son Essai sur l'origine des connaissances humaines (1746). Bel exemplaire. Coins légèrement émoussés, charnières et coupes un peu frottées. Tchemerzine II, 480
