        Physiologisch und anatomische Abhandlungen von einer ungewöhnlichen Erweiterung des Herzens und denen Spannadern des Angesichts.

      . Berlin bey Amros. Haude und Johann Carl Spener, 1755, 4°, (2), 140 pp., mit 3 gefalt. Kupferstichtafeln, feiner Halblederband im Stil der Zeit; minimal fleckig.. Erste Ausgabe.! - Johann Friedrich Meckel (31. Juli 1724 in Wetzlar; ? 18. September 1774 in Berlin), der Stammvater der bekannten Anatomenfamilie, studierte in Göttingen und promovierte dort 1748 mit seiner bekannten Dissertation "De quinto pari nervorum cerebri" mit der Entdeckung des später nach ihm benannten "Ganglion submaxillare". Schon 3 Jahre später wurde er Professor der Anatomie u. Geburtshilfe. In Göttingen gehörte Meckel mit dem leider so früh verstorbenen Johann Gottfried Zinn zu den brillantesten Schülern Albrecht von Hallers. - - Bei dieser "Abhandlung" handelt es sich um 2 Dissertationen; einmal eine kardiologische, die Erweiterung des Herzens betreffend, (pp.1-21) mit 2 schönen, großen Kupfertafeln. Später von Albrecht von Haller in seinen Studien zur Arteriosklerose zitiert. Zum anderen eine neurologische Abhandlung (pp.22-120) über die "Spannadern" (=Nerven) des Gesichtes, mit der prächtigen, großen Kupfertafel mit den Eintragungen von 310 Lokalisationen. - - Johann Gottfried Meckel, one of the most brilliant disciples of Albrecht von Haller, was an anatomist endowed with great powers of observations. The present volume contains two dissertations by him, one on cardiology, the other on neurology, which had originally appeared in the Transaction of the Berlin Academy of Sciences. The first (p.1-21) deals with an extraordinary dilation of the heart caused by the narrowness of the canal of the aorta, illustrated with two remarkable copperplates of the heart. At the outset Meckel writes that this case was omitted by Lancisi. The second dissertation Pp.21-140) deals with the nerve of the face. It is illustrated with an anatomical copperplate showing the location of 310 facial nerves. - - Hirsch-H. IV, 144; Blake, p.296; Haller Bibl. Anatomica II, 423; Goldschmid, Pathol.-anat.

        Zwei französische Soldaten, ein am Kopf verwundeter, sitzender Soldat mit erhobenem Arm in Rückenansicht und ein nach links liegender, möglicherweise schlafender Soldat.

      . Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Bütten, links unten signiert "P. Hess". 16,5:22,8 cm Rand rechts unregelmäßig beschnitten, minimal fleckig, verso in den Ecken Reste alter Verklebung. Sicher Figurenstudien zu einem Gemälde.. Der Schlachten- und Genremaler Hess erhielt seinen ersten Unterricht bei seinem Vater, dem Kupferstecher C.E.C. Hess (1755-1828). Im Alter von 16 Jahren begann er ein Studium an der Münchner Akademie, das er 1814 beendete. Anschließend widmet er sich neben Naturstudien der altdeutschen Malerei. Unter dem Einfluss von W. von Kobell (1766-1853) und den eigenen Kriegserlebnissen in Frankreich 1813-1815 entstanden seine ersten Schlachtenbilder. 1818 reiste er nach Italien. Die 20er Jahre brachten steigende Anerkennung. 1833 begleitete er König Otto I. nach Griechenland, 1839 reiste er nach Russland. In der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts zählt Hess, wie W. von Kobell und A. Adam (1786-1862), zu den bedeutendsten Schlachtenmalern in München.

        Observations sur diffférens Points d'Harmonie.

      A Genève, et se trouvent à Paris, chez Bailleux, Marchand de Musique des menus plaisirs du Roi, 1755. - in-8. 4ff. 249pp. 1 planche hors-texte dépliante. Broché, couverture muette de l'époque. Edition Originale. Originaire de Marseille, l'abbé Pierre Joseph Roussier (1716-1792) avait été initié à la théorie musicale par la lecture des écrits de Rameau. C'est pour en éclairer certains points, et en corriger d'autres selon lui erronés, que le présent ouvrage avait vu le jour. "Les différentes matières, traitées dans les unes ou les autres de ces Observations, peuvent encore servir de clef pour l'intelligence des sçavans écrits de M. Rameau, et de préservatif contre les erreurs où des préjugés reçus ont fait quelquefois tomber ce grand homme. C'est le double objet de cet Ouvrage" (avertissement). "As a proponent of Rameau's theories, his goal was to reduce fundamental bass rules to a rigorous system that avoided speculative propositions. ( ) Roussier diverged from Rameau on the issue of double emploi. He insisted that a subdominant chord with added 6th was distinctly different from a minor 7th chord on the second scale degree. He extended Rameau's principles of inversion, supposition and substitution to invent new chords and to relate augmented 6th chords to a dominant function. He also advocated Pythagorean tuning" (New Grove Dictionary). Bel exemplaire, non coupé et non rogné. [Attributes: First Edition]

The Dictionary was officially published on April 15, 1755, in an edition of 2000 copies, and sold at the high price of £4-10s-0d.

Later half calf and marbled boards (somewhat rubbed and scuffed); title-page soiled, both plates and text spotted, mostly at outer margins. When Chinoiserie was all the Rage The fashion for the Chinese style was initiated, according to Harris, by Frederick, the Prince of Wales, who in 1749 had a "House of Confucius" built for him at Kew, as well as a Chinese barge with oarsman in Oriental costume to row him up and down the Thames. William Halfpenny was never a designer to miss his opportunity to exploit the latest fashion: "Halfpenny's role had never been to reform taste but to reduce it to practicable terms and disseminate it, as he said of his Chinese designs. 'to workmen at a distance from the Metropolis'. ... The fact that these exotic [i.e., Chinese and Moorish] styles had no established rules must have made them especially attractive to the inventive, non-conforming William Halfpenny. The liberties he was able to take in altering , combining, and adapting them to British requirements were greater in degree but the same in principle as those he had taken with the Palladian idiom" (Harris, p. 221).

      Paris, chez Desaint & Saillant, Jean-Thomas Herissant, Jacques Barois, 1755. - 8vo. 12 vols. With 72 engr. maps. Contemp. French full calf with giltstamped labels and gilt spines. All edges red; marbled endpapers. A fine copy of the twelve-volume octavo edition of the most detailed and accurate geography of its day (published simultaneously in four quarto volumes). All the maps are taken from the "Atlas Portatif" (1748-49) of Robert de Vaugondy. The fine map of the Arabian Peninsula is derived, via Vaugondy, from Delisle; "it includes the three classic divisions of the Arabian Peninsula and the following regional subdivisions: Tahama in the south west, Bahrain, which extends along the east coast and includes the town of Cathema, Yemen in the south which includes Oman, the States of the Cherif of Mecca which includes Hagiaz and parts of the centre of the Arabian Peninsula. Although the width of the Red Sea is exaggerated, the Sinai peninsula's shape is very close to reality. The topographical features and watercourses are not very different to how they are shown on other maps of the same period. A town named Naged is shown to the north west of the town of Janama" (Al Ankary). - Some bindings slightly bumped at extremeties.

        A Dictionary of the English Language:

      London: by W. Strahan, for J. and P. Knapton; T. and T. Longman; C. Hitch and L. Hawes; A. Millar; and R. and J. Dodsley,, 1755. in which the Words are deduced from their Originals, and Illustrated in their Different Significations by Examples from the best Writers. To which are prefixed, A History of the Language, and An English Grammar. 2 volumes, folio (420 × 246 mm). Mid-19th century full red hard-grain morocco, skilfully rebacked to style with richly gilt spine and green label, broad gilt roll-tool borders on sides, yellow endpapers. Title page printed in red and black. Some dampstaining to inner margin and head of a few gatherings at beginning and end of volume II. A most handsome complete copy. First edition of this most famous of English dictionaries. The creation of the dictionary was Johnson's greatest literary labour. Helped by a succession of needy amanuenses who worked in the surprisingly spacious garret of his house in Gough Square, he experienced the death of his mother and underwent agonies of procrastination before finally completing the task in his 46th year. Boswell called it a work of "superior excellence" and "much greater mental labour, than mere Lexicons, or Word Books as the Dutch call them" (Life of Johnson: An Edition of the Original Manuscript. Vol I: 1709?-1765, ed. Marshall Waingrow, Edinburgh, 1994, p. 213). As his use of 114,000 illustrative quotations shows, Johnson clearly intended to combine lexicography with entertainment and instruction; this was the only work he called "my Book" (Letters I: 71). Since it was now owned by the booksellers who had paid him £1,575 in advance, publication by no means saved him from poverty. Yet it was always to be called "Johnson's Dictionary" ?- and was as much his greatest monument as St. Paul's was Christopher Wren's. The national pride taken in the dictionary was expressed by the poet Christopher Smart when he wrote in the Universel Visitor: "I look upon [it] with equal amazement, as I do upon St. Paul's Cathedral; each the work of one man, each the work of an Englishman" (quoted by Henry Hitchings, Dr. Johnson's Dictionary, London, 2005, pp. 199?-200). Provenance: gilt monograms of Matthew John Rhodes on front covers: "the library of M.J. Rhodes of Cumberland was sold at auction by Messrs C.B. Tait and T. Nisbet of Edinburgh 8 July 1851... the bindings being particularly mentioned. Matthew John Rhodes (1817?-1891), of Eardstone House in Worcestershire, only son of Timothy Rhodes banker late of Leeds was admitted to Trinity College Cambridge as a Pensioner 14 February 1833 age 17, and took his B.A. 1839 and his M.A. in 1842. He was admitted to an ad eundem degree at Oxford University 18 May 1843 and admitted to the Inner Temple 10 November 1837... An M. J. Rhodes published a number of polemic tracts on Catholicism" (University of Toronto Libraries: British Armorial Bindings). Ownership inscription of the British Labour leader and bibliophile Michael Foot (1913-2010) on endpapers of both volumes.

        Rime

      1755. DURANTI, Durante. Rime. viii pp., 1 f., ccxxxiv pp. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece, title-vignette, portrait of Carl Emmanuel the dedicatee, portrait of the author with his coat of arms below, 9 engraved headpieces, 8 engraved tailpieces, 110 engraved historiated intitials. 4to., 283 x 187 mm, bound in contemporary Italian full vellum, brown morocco label, sprinkled edges. Brescia: Gian-Maria Rizzardi, 1755. |~||~||~||~||~| Second Edition, printed in the same year as the first, a fine copy in original condition of the poems by Count Durante Duranti of Brescia, a superbly printed work dedicated to King Carl Emmanuel III. The text is a series of eight letters, written in verse form, followed by one hundred sonnets. This is a charming piece of mid-eighteenth-century Italian printing, with a frontispiece engraved by Crivellari after Scalvini, the portrait of the author and title-vignette by Zucchi, and dedicatee's portrait engraved by Crivellari and Zucchi after Scalvini. Count Durante (1718-1780), the celebrated Brescian poet, began his studies at the University of Bologna where his poetic gifts were soon recognized. In 1750 an unhappy series of events forced him into a dual with a "man of quality" who died from the wounds inflicted on him by the count. For several years after the event Durante took refuge in the principality of Castiglione, where his family held several considerable estates. Finally he was allowed to return to Brescia, and in time the poet was received by the court of Carl Emmanuel. The literary king found Durante's talents worthy of royal patronage, and conferred upon him the Noble Order of SS. Maurice and Lazare. Durante received similar patronage from Carl Emmanuel's successor, Victor Amadeus III. This copy, like that of the Houghton Library, has engraved initials pasted over typographical ones on pp. cxx, cxxix-cxxxvii, cxli-cxlix. It also has one pasted on p. clx (apparently not present in the Houghton copy), but not on ccxvii. In very fine state. Gamba 2223.

        The History of Peter the Great, Emperor of Russia

      1755. GORDON, Alexander. The History of Peter the Great, Emperor of Russia. Two volumes. xl, 311, [1]; viii, 352, [353-376] pp. Illustrated with three engraved portraits and one fold-out map of Russia. Contains author biography, author preface, table of contents, subscriber's list, appendix, index, errata, directions to the binder, and one leaf of publisher's advertisements. 8vo. in fours, 195 x 121 mm., bound in contemporary mottled calf, five raised bands, gilt-tooling and red and black morocco title-labels on spines. Aberdeen: F. Douglas and W. Murray, 1755. |~||~||~||~| First Edition. A contemporary narrative of the life of Peter the Great, by a personal acquaintance. According to the author's biography at the beginning of the book, Alexander Gordon of Achintoul, Esq., was enlisted in the service of the Russian military after impressing Czar Peter the Great by beating off six Russian men in a fistfight. He quickly moved up the ranks, eventually achieving the status of Major General. As a result, he was either present at many of the scenes he describes, or was given an account by someone who was. As he states in his preface, the author tries to remain impartial in his biography, condemning Voltaire for his criticism of the Empress Catherine. The contents of the work go beyond what the title implies; the first two chapters (or books) are dedicated to the formation of the country and its history up to the ascendance of Peter the Great, as well as a general description of the country, including its economy and weather. The Appendix contains information about Russian dress, numismatics, taxes, weights and measures, and anecdotes of Peter the Great. The portraits depict Peter the Great, Alexander Gordon and Lieutenant General Prince Menzikoff, an important and well-favored general in the Czar's army, who introduced him to his wife Catherine. All three portraits are engraved from the original paintings. In volume two, tear to outer edge of p. 85-6, not affecting the text, p. 115-118 (conjugate leaves P2 and P3) loose, ms. fragment in black ink used as bookmark between pp. 274-75, small tear to bottom of left-most fold of map, wear to binding extremities, otherwise near fine. PROVENANCE: "Wil. Erskyne," perhaps a descendant of or one of the Erskines in the subscriber's list, with name written in black ink on head of front free endpaper.

        Catalogo degli antichi monumenti dissotterrati dalla discoperta citta di Ercolano per ordine della maestá di Carlo re delle due Sicilie, [...], composto e steso da monseigneur Ottavio Antonio Bayardi.

      Naples, nella regia stamperia di S. M., 1755. Imperial folio (490 x 400 mm). (4),+ XXII,+ 447 pp. Title with engraved vignette. Near contemporary marbled full calf, richly gilt spine with raised bands and green title and part title labels, red edges. Spine defective at top. Garcia 1414. Furchheim p. 7. Blackmer 97. The somewhat unfortunate scholar Ottavio Antonio Bayardi (1694-1764) was forced to publish this catalogue after his failure with the "Prodromo delle antichità d'Ercolano", and when the prime minister Bernardo Tanuccio founded the Accademia Ercolanese - in the same year - Bayardi was fired from his position as sole publisher of material from the excavations. Soon he also came to be replaced by Berardo Galiani as member of the Accademia. This catalogue consists of a list of all the finds made in Herculaneum and Pompeii and it is published as a pre-catalogue to the planned large "Le antichita d'Ercolano eposte". The catalogue, however, offers only the listing and a brief description of the artefacts. The title vignette is after Camillo Paderni and engraved by Antonio Piaggio

      Par mm. Cochin & Bellicard. Second édition. Paris, Ch. Ant. Jombert, 1755. 12mo. xxxviii,+ (6),+ 104 pp.+ 40 engravings on 32 plates, of which 5 are folding. The dedication with engr. vignette. The title leaf with damp stain and spotting, otherwise only minor spotting. Worn contemporary full mottled calf, richly gilt spine with raised bands and beige label and red edges, crack in front hinge, upper joint defective. Garcia 3098, note. Furchheim p. 17. Vinet 1715. The rare real second edition, a third edition with "second edition" in its title was published in 1757. The first was published in 1754. An English translation was published already in 1753, with only Bellicard given as author. With printed dedication to the marquis de Marigny. The "Observations" by the French architect Jérôme-Charles Bellicard (1726-86) and the famous engraver and connoisseur Charles-Nicolaus Cochin (1715-90) is an important book in the history of the excavations of Herculaneum. They visited Naples in 1750, on their Grand Tour 1749-51 together with Abel-François Poisson de Vandiéres, the marquis de Marigny (brother to madame de Pompadour), the architect Soufflot and abbé Le Blanche. Their book includes a description and a plan of the Basilica - the first published plan over Herculaneum, and a part plan of the theatre. Both these plans are based on sketches made in 1743 by Pierre Bardet de Villeneuve, head of the excavations during 1741-45, who took all his plans and drawings with him when he left Naples. The Royal ban in Naples against measurings and drawings at the excavations was intended to prevent publications like this one! The notebooks and drawings made by Bellicard during the journey are still preserved. Cochin also published a general guidebook to Italy and its art treasures

        The Art of Cookery …

      London: Printed, and sold at Mrs. Ashburn's China-Shop, the Corner of Fleet-Ditch; et al.,, 1755. The Fifth Edition with Additions. Octavo (195 × 124 mm). Contemporary calf, paper label with title in ink to the spine, raised bands framed by double gilt rules, double-fillet gilt panel to the boards, foliate edge-roll in blind. Half-title bound in. Contemporary ownership on a "Miss Barlowe" to the title page. A little rubbed, some judicious restoration at the extremities, front free endpaper renewed, single, small worm-track through the first 20 pages or so, spotting and browning, as usual, heavier front and back, remains a very good copy. The Fifth edition, the first was published in 1746, with the author's "facsimile" signature to first page of text. This is certainly not a printed facsimile, but would seem to be a case of signing "in the edition" to guarantee its authenticity at the time when Glasse was being forced to assign the copyright of her book to save herself from bankruptcy; "The commissioners of bankruptcy did not auction her stock as it was held in her daughter's name, but on 29 October 1754 the copyright of The Art of Cookery and the printed sheets of the fifth edition were sold to Andrew Miller and his conger who were to be responsible for the Art for the next fifty years" (ODNB). On first publication Glasse's book had become an immediate bestseller. A response to the rapid growth of the middle classes in the first half of the eighteenth century, it addressed the need for handbooks and manuals written for servants rather than for the châtelaine herself; "I believe I have attempted a Branch of Cookery which Nobody has yet thought worth their while to write upon: But as I have both seen, and found by Experience that the Generality of Servants are greatly wanting in that Point, therefore I have taken upon me to instruct them in the best Manner I am capable; and, dare I say, that every Servant who can but read will be capable of making a tolerable good Cook, and those who have the least Notion of Cookery, can't miss of being very good ones. If I have not wrote in the high, polite Stile, I hope I shall be forgiven; for my Intention is to instruct the lower Sort, and therefore must treat them in their own Way" (To the Reader). Despite the success of her book and royal patronage of her Covent Garden "habitmakers" Glasse struggled financially. She was discharged in 1755 following the sale of her rights in The Art of Cookery, but in June 1757 she "was consigned as a debtor to Marshalsea prison and transferred to the Fleet prison" (ODNB) the next month. No record exists of her release, but she was subsequently involved in a couple of unsuccessful publications before disappearing from sight; "Nothing is known of the last ten years of Glasse's life. There was only a brief announcement in the London Magazine and the Newcastle Courant that Mrs Hannah Glasse, sister to Sir Lancelot Allgood, had died in London on 1 September 1770. No will has been found".

        Die Tugend besungen.

      Halle, Christoph Peter Franken, 1755. 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.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe. 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.

Mit gestochener Titelvignette von Martin Bernigeroth. - Goedeke IV/1, 80, 3. - Sehr selten. 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.

        ESSAI DE PSYCHOLOGIE. Ou Considerations sur les operations de l'ame, sur l'habitude et sur l'education. Auxquelles on a ajouté des Principes philosophiques sur la cause premiere et sur son effet.

      Prima edizione. Testo francese. Cm.17,3x10,4. Pg.XLII, 390. Legatura ottocentesca in mz.pelle con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso e piatti marmorizzati. Tagli spruzzati. Fregi calcografici. Fresco esemplare, assai ben conservato. Discendente da famiglia benestante, Charles Bonnet (Ginevra, 1720 - 1793), dopo gli studi in giurisprudenza si dedicò alla professione forense, ma i suoi interessi furono rivolti principalmente alla storia naturale e alla filosofia. Fu lui, studiando la riproduzione degli afidi, a scoprire la partenogenesi, ossia la riproduzione senza fecondazione. Il presente testo, in prima edizione, costituisce il suo primo e principale studio di psicologia, ed in esso sviluppa originali spunti anticipando le teorie della psicologia biologica e della neurologia comportamentale. Ispirandosi a Newton sostiene che la conoscenza del comportamento umano e animale deriva dalla comprensione del sistema nervoso, approfondendo in maniera originale i rapporti tra psicologia e fisiologia. E' considerato uno dei padri della moderna biologia.
