Baretti Giuseppe
London, Millar, 1755. 1755 In 8°, pagg. XI, (1), 467, (1), leg. coeva in piena pelle, tassello al dorso e nervi. Prima edizione dell"opera di Giuseppe Baretti (1719-1789) in cui il letterato torinese propose una antologia di celebri autori italiani (tra i quali Castiglione, Machiavelli, Boccaccio, Ariosto, Tasso, Michelangelo, Petrarca) con traduzione inglese a fronte. Nel volume furono inseriti alcuni sonetti di Milton che probabilmente il Baretti tradusse dietro suggerimento di Johnson, suo maestro e punto di riferimento dopo il trasferimento a Londra nel 1751. Johnson viene ritenuto autore dell'Introduzione e, secondo alcuni critici, anche delle note alle pag. 48 e 198. Dorso e angoli abilmente restaurati, qualche gora e bruniture ma buon esemplare.

Annotated in French to show 'les pretensions des Anglois' particularly with regard to boundaries and treaties concerning Nova Scotia" (Sellers and Van Ee).The present first state was published in 1755. With the outbreak of the American Revolution engendering increasing demand for American maps, Le Rouge reworked the plate (adding the boundaries of the new States) and re-titled it Theatre de la guerre en Amérique in 1777. He then re-worked it again and published it in 1787 with the title Carte d'une partie de l'Amérique Septentrionale pour servir a l'Histoire de la dernière guerre. The present first state, however, published on the eve of the French and Indian War is scarce.McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps 755.23; Sellers and Van Ee, Maps and Charts of North America and the West Indies 33.

WRIGHT, Thomas.
First edition of this extraordinary work, remarkable for its influential theory of the Milky Way, and for its beautiful mezzotints. Wright's physico-philosophical system of the universe is the first after Newton, carrying Newton's theories forward and providing a basis for the theories of Laplace and Kant. "The first to form any definite idea as to the constitution of the stellar system was Thomas Wright... With him originated what has been called the 'Grindstone Theory' of the universe, which regarded the Milky Way as the projection the sphere of a stratum or disk of stars (our sun occupying a position near the centre), similar in magnitude and distribution to the lucid orbs of the constellations" (Clerke). Wright also suggested with "perfect definiteness" that the rings of Saturn consisted of an aggregated multitude of unconnected particles, each revolving independently round the planet. James Clerk Maxwell demonstrated this as the only scientifically tenable theory against the hypotheses of fluid or solid rings. The plates illustrating Wright's system are exceptionally clear and finely executed; those executed in mezzotint have an almost surreal beauty not found in any other book on astronomy. <br/><br/> Wright's book has had a variable reception. At first it attracted little attention, until it was rescued from a probable oblivion, when Immanuel Kant borrowed some of Wright's ideas in his <i>Naturgeschichte und Theorie des Himmels</i>, 1755. It has twice been reprinted in the twentieth century, testimony both to the philosophical interest of the book as well as its stri … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Bonnet, Charles)
Londres, 1755. 8°. XLII, 390p. Reliure pleine veau d'époque, dos a nerfs orné. Quérard I, 408 (avec l amention Londres 1754). - Erste Ausgabe. - Charles Bonnets frühe physische Behinderungen: er war schon als Kind taub geworden, zudem war er schon mit dreissig Jahren nicht mehr in der Lage mikroskopische Studien zu tätigen, was den erfolgreichen Insektenforscher zwang, seine naturwissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse mit den Fragen der Philosophie, vor allem mit der Phänomenologie zu verbinden. So wie seine naturwissenschaftlichen Studien sind auch die philosophisch-psychologischen Texte stark pietistisch geprägt. - Der fingierte Druckort "London" scheint sich aus dem kurzen Vorwort zu erklären in dem der Autor sich an seine ungenannten Freunde richtet, und ihnen seinen Dank ausspricht und das Buch widmet. Bonnet fand in seinen Studien über Abraham Trembley schon um 1740 Anerkennung der Royal Society, die den knapp zwanzigjährigen als Mitglied aufnahm. - Mit gestochenem Exlibris "M. de May d'Huningue"* (Wegmann 4684) auf dem Innendeckel. Sehr schönes fleckenloses Exemplar auf starkem Papier. [3 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

LE ROUGE, George Louis [1740 - 1780]
Paris: Recueil Contenant Cartes Nouvelles, [1755]. 1st. No binding. Good. Condition: B Color: hand color Size: 19.5 x 24.3 inches, 49.6 x 61.8 cm There is a small, unobtrusive hole in a blank area near Cape Cod and some short tears in the margins and the centerfold. The map has been backed with 18th century paper, apparently for binding into a composite atlas. The backing repairs all the flaws. , This important map was issued at the outbreak of hostilities in the French and Indian War. The detailed map depicts the entire eastern seaboard from northern Florida to the Strait of Belle Isle, and the Great Lakes region up to Lake Michigan and eastern Lake Superior. The American interests of France, England and Spain are shown in great detail and color-coded. Fort Duquesne is shown in two different places on the map - according to D'Anville and also to Jefferys. A large inset shows the upper Mississippi River valley with the important frontier forts. A smaller inset shows the lower Mississippi and Gulf Coast. A small vignette of Niagara Falls adds further interest to this fascinating map. This is the first state of four. The later issues have revised titles. Ref: McCorkle #755.23; Sellers and Van Ee #33.

De Vaugondy, Gilles Robert
Paris: Gilles Robert De Vaugondy, 1755. Sheet is approximately 30.5" x 22"; map is approximately 26" x 20". Bright, fresh color. Very light toning and wear. The 'dark' upper maringal area in the accompanying image is a photo shadow; there is no discoloration on the map. This is an exceptionally nice example of De Vaugondy's beautiful single-sheet interpretation of the famous Fry-Jefferson map and one of the most sought after 18th Century maps of Virginia and Maryland. No other contemporary maps provided an equally detailed view of the region, which extends as far east as New Jersey, as far north as Philadelphia, as far south as North Carolina, and as far west as the Alleghany Mountains. Although the title is in French, almost all other text is in English. De Vagoundy first published this map in 1755, however this fifth state printing (no date in the cartouche) was produced in the mid to late 1770s. . Map. Near Fine.

SIMPSON (Thomas) A Letter to the Right Honourable George Earl of Macclesfield, President of the Royal Society, on the Advantage of Taking the Mean of a Number of Observations, in Practical Astronomy, First Edition, pp.82-93, in the complete volume for 1755, vol 49, Part I, of The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, xiv, 444pp small quarto, a very good copy, bound in early 20th two-colour buckram, neat small embossed library name at foot of general title, with 14 fine extending copper engraved plates, London, [The Royal Society], 1755. * Simpson was the first to attempt to prove mathematically that the mean result of several observations is nearer to the truth than any single observation (the law of large numbers). A key feature of his paper was that Simpson chose to focus "not on the observations themselves . . . but on the errors made in the observations, on the differences between the recorded observations and the actual position of the body being observed… [This] was the critical step that was to open the door to an applicable quantification of uncertainty" (Stigler, Hist. Statistics, pp. 90-91; see also pp. 88-94). "Simpson was the first to characterize the errors in observations as independent events, taking positive and negative values with equal probabilities, and the first to provide a mathematical expression for the probability that the error in the mean result will lie between assigned limits" (Todhunter, Hist. Probability, p. 309). Simpson's paper, which he revised in 1757 in response to criticism by Thomas Bayes, is considered a milestone in statist … [Click Below for Full Description]

Duhamel-Dumonceau's first book on trees; The large woodcuts are in part printed from blocks made by Giogio Liberale and Wolfgang Meyerpeck for Matthioli's great herbal two centuries earlier and which Duhamel had acquired for use in this work. They contrast dramatically with the delicate oblong copper plate vignettes of the anatomical details of of the trees described. He was the greatest agronomist, or rural economist of the 18th century. Although he did not have the scientific genius of his younger contemporary Lavoisier, both studied separately the physiology of vegetables. He applied the extent and variety of his researches to agriculture, commerce and the navy. Although he wasa prolific writer, this book remains, in the words of Davy de Virville, "son ouvrage fondamental."

ROUSSEAU, JEAN JAQUES (sic!). - [THE INEQUALITY OF MAN]
Amsterdam, Marc Michel Rey, 1755. 8vo. Very nice contemporary full mottled calf with richly gilt spine. A bit of wear to capitals, hinges, and corners, Book plate to inside of front board. Title-page printed in red and black, engraved title-vignette, engraved frontispiece (by Eisen, engraved by Sornique), 1 large engraved vignette and a few woodcut vignettes. Minor occasional brownspotting. Overall a very fine copy, with good margins, and printed on good paper. Frontispiece + LXX, (2), 262, (2, -errata & avis au relieur) pp.. First edition, first issue, of one of Rousseau's main works and one of the most important works of political thought in general. The "Discourse on the Origins of Inequality" is considered Rousseau's first important work and the work that lays the foundation for his later thought.The present copy is with all the first issue pointers (e.g. the erroneous spelling of "Jaques", the accent aigu in "conformé" added by hand by M.M. Rey on p. 11) and the three cancels (pp. LXVII-LXVIII, 111-112, and 139-140). According to Tchemerzine, there were copies on thick, heavy paper ("Il existe des ex. en papier fort"), of which this is presumably one. At least the dedication (LXX pp.) in the present copy is printed on very thick paper, whereas the paper of the remaining leaves is a bit less heavy. The present copy has nice, wide margins. According to Dufour there are five counterfeit-editions bearing the same date (they are easily distinguishable from the first issue).

(BONNET, CHARLES). - [ANTICIPATING BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY]
London, 1755. 8vo. Bound in a very nice cont. full mottled calf binding with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. Front hinge a bit weak, upper capital w. minor loss. Internally very nice and clean. LXII, 390 pp. ¶ The rare first edition of Bonnet's important first work on psychology, in which he develops his views regarding the physiological conditions of mental activity and thus anticipates physiological psychology (biological psychology or behavioral neuroscience). Bonnet's movement or "vibration" model, which is presented in the present work for the first time, constitutes a much elaborated model of the internal representation of ideas that Newton had also discussed. His contributions to the field of neuro-psychology were highly original, and his theories which included the idea that the understanding of human (and animal) behavior presupposes knowledge of the nervous system and its functions caused quite a stir at the time of their appearance.With the present work, Bonnet became a pioneer in the study of the physiological bases of behavior, and his theories and experiments on the relationship between psychological and physiological processes were much ahead of his time."Bonnet is considered one of the fathers of modern biology. He is distinguished for both his experimental research and his philosophy, which exerted a profound influence upon the naturalists of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. " (D.S.B. II: 286).After at the age of 26 having discovered the parthenogenesis of the aphid (plant lice), which established virginal generation, having written importan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dans ce curieux ouvrage on trouve une dissertation sur les odeurs, les principes de la distillation, des infusions, des liqueurs et eaux-de-vie, du café, du thé, de la cannelle, de la fleur d'oranger, du cassis, du genièvre, de l'absinthe, du ratafia... des fruits à l'eau-de-vie etc... ainsi que la distillation des odeurs... des huiles essentielles et eaux parfumées. A la fin se trouve un vocabulaire des termes techniques. Rappelons que cet ouvrage est surtout célèbre pour contenir une dissertation préliminaire sur l'harmonie des saveurs avec une étonnante interprétation à l'aide d'une gamme musicale notée des différentes gradations de saveurs, accords et dissonances, qui inspira à J. K. Huysmans son célèbre orgue des odeurs ou "organe des liqueurs" dans "A Rebours". C'est donc le premier essai d'une correspondance des sens avant Baudelaire et Rimbaud. ¶ Vicaire 171 - Bitting p.376 - Caillet 8822 - Mueller 169 - Ferguson I.154 - Duveen p.480.

The author is considered a pioneer of economic theory who anticipated and influenced the likes of Smith, Malthus, Turgot, Quesnay, Mirabeau, etc., etc. and this, his only published work (!), is considered the first actual work of theoretical economics, an absolutely ground-breaking work which by Jevons was characterized as the "Cradle of Political Economy".Richard Cantillon (1680-1734), though his name is probably of Spanish descent, was an Irishman, and he spent most of his life in France. He was a man of secrecy, and little is known about his life and work. He wro … [Click Below for Full Description]
