        El Duende de México

      Mexico 1756 - "First CLANDESTINE Periodical From Mexico ÂÂ- Produced Only in MANUSCRIPT Form ÂÂ- a COMPLETE Copy ÂÂ- NO COPIES in OCLC". 4to. Modern mottled boards. 44 leaves. Italic script. EXTREMELY RARE SURVIVAL OF THE FIRST CLANDESTINE PERIODICAL OF LATIN AMERICA, AND THE FIRST OF MEXICO, PRODUCED ONLY IN MANUSCRIPT FORM. This satirical paper was produced only in manuscript form. The Duende was conceived as a journal in prose and verse divided in 4 issues (correos), the first dated 27th of November 1755, and the last 20th of January of 1756. It was dedicated to the arrival in Mexico in 1755 of the new Viceroy don Agustín de Ahumada y Villalón, Marqués de las Amarillas. It followed the model of the Papeles del Duende político de Palacio o del Duende de Patiño, the first clandestine paper produced in Spain in 1735-1736 which criticized Philip VÂÂ's first minister José Patiño. The aim of the Duende de Mexico was to undermine the reputation of the new Viceroy by making satirical use of the format of eulogistic prose and poetical compositions produced for similar events. As was the case with the Duende político de Palacio, it is very likely that the author or authors of the Duende de Mexico had direct access to power enjoying a high position in the court of the Viceroyalty. They no doubt disposed of a team of copyists to disseminate the paper among the ranks of the colonial aristocracy and a more general reading public who may have been attracted by the the popular style of the poems.

        An Exact Survey of the City and Suburbs of Dublin in which is express'd the Ground Plot of all the Publick Buildings, Dwelling Houses, Ware Houses, Stables, Court Yards &c by John Rocque Chorographer to their Royal Highnesses the Late and Present Prince of Wales.

      Published According to Act of Parliament,, London, 1756 - the peak of eighteenth-century urban surveying in Ireland Engraved plan, on four sheets, a few nicks and minor tears to border skilfully repaired. "Rocque's Exact Survey of Dublin (Dublin, 1756) can be considered the apex of the city's eighteenth-century cartography. Rocque's ability to organise and overcome logistical problems separates him from contemporary Irish surveyors and elevates him to the zenith of eighteenth-century surveying in Dublin. He introduced a revolutionary change in cartographic style, method and relationship with geographic data into Irish mapping not seen since the arrival of William Petty almost a century before" (O'Cionnaith). Rocque moved to Dublin from London in early 1754, in order to survey Dublin and its environs on the same scale as his monumental plan of London – two hundred feet to an inch. An advertisement was taken out in the summer of 1754, setting out the extent of the plan and soliciting subscriptions. Rocque began surveying at the beginning of September of that year. The survey would take Rocque two years, with the plan being published on four sheets in 1756. One of the most striking differences between Rocque's plan of Dublin and his plan of London is the level of detail in the Dublin map. Rocque picks out every building within the city: 11,645 in total, with separate hatching included to distinguish between residences and business. As the title makes plain, the plan delineates "all publick buildings, dwelling houses, ware houses, stables, courts, yards &c". Also depicted are numerous places of worship including Anglican churches, "Roman chappels", French churches, Presbyterian, and Quaker meeting houses. At the time of printing Dublin's population was around 100,000; the city having greatly expanded from its medieval origins. The castle dominates to the right; not far to the south is St Patrick's Cathedral, where Jonathan Swift was dean. To the right of the plan are Trinity College Dublin, Parliament House, and the fashionable St. Stephen's Green to the south. To the left the Barracks, Royal Hospital and the City work house are clearly marked. The numerous ships on the River Liffey show the source of the city's wealth. Rocque's plan was a substantial improvement on Charles Brookings' plan of 1728, and would continue to be the standard plan of the city for the rest of the eighteenth century. Rocque continued to work in Ireland up until 1760, publishing plans of the environs of Dublin, Thurles, Kilkenny, Cork, Newry, Armagh, and a general map of Ireland. Rare.

        Dictionary of the English Language by Samuel Johnson, 1756, 2 volumes, leather

      - Title: Dictionary of the English Language 2 volume set Author: Samuel Johnson Publisher: printed for J. Knapton, C.Hitch et al., Publication date: 1756 Binding: full calf leather with raised bands and gilt borders. Description / Condition: The first octavo and abridged edition of Johnson's Dictionary. With the variant 'By the Author' to volume I. This was originally omitted and added late in the printing. Abstracted from the Folio Edition. Complete in two volumes. 'In which the words are deduced from their originals, explained in their different meanings, and authorised by the names of the writes in whose works they are found, to which is prefixed, a grammar of the English Language.' Samuel Johnson, often referred to as Dr. Johnson, was an English writer, poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer. Johnson's Dictionary was viewed as the pre-eminent British dictionary until the completion of the Oxford English Dictionary 150 years later. First printed in folio in 1755, the dictionary was reissued in the popular octavo edition in 1756. From the beginning there was a great appreciation for the work, and it was reviewed postively. Despite being critically well received, it did little to improve Johnson's financial situation at the time. ** Light edge wear/bumps to boards. Little splitting to top edges of spines. Title blocks faded. Inscription to inner boards and title pages. Light foxing to pages with spotting in places. Couple of small edge tears and hinges a little worn in places with light edge stain to rear. A nice, collectable edition of this famous work.

        ALL THE ORATIONS OF DEMOSTHENES, PRONOUNCED TO EXCITE THE ATHENIANS AGAINST PHILIP, KING OF MACEDON. Translated into English; Digested and Connected, So as to form a regular History of the Progress of the Macedonian Power: with Notes Historical and Critical.

      London: W. Johnston, 1756. The First Edition of Thomas Leland's acclaimed translation into English. With a large multi-folding map of the geography of Magna Graecia. 4to, handsomely bound in fine three-quarter polished calf over marbled boards to contemporary style, the spine with raised bands blind ruled, contrasting red and green morocco lettering labels gilt lettered and ruled in gilt, a rare, untrimmed copy still with the printer's edges. [xxiv], [6], 172, [3] pp. A very handsome and beautifully preserved copy, edges untrimmed, the pages crisp and clean and unpressed. FIRST EDITION OF THOMAS LELAND'S ACCLAIMED TRANSLATION OF THIS GREAT CLASSICAL WORK. Demosthenes particularly, is considered to embody the model of the ancient political orator, and might well be regarded as the greatest orator of all time. He began as a speech writer and worked his way to the position of prominent politician, earning the admiration of the Greeks by constantly urging resistance to the encroachments of Philip II of Macedon as he threatened Athens. He played a great and important role in negotiating public policy towards the Phillippic threat in the following years. A prolific orator and statesman, sixty-one of his speeches have survived and many are translated here into English. Especially significant are the inclusion of his speeches regarding the Phillippic threat. Starting in 352 BC, Demosthenes began a series of speeches to excite Athenians against the military encroachment of Philip, King of Macedonia (and father of Alexander the Great). Though ultimately defeated, Demosthenes continued to use his great oratory powers to fight against the Macedonians for fifteen years. Thomas Leland, eminent historian and fellow of Trinity College Dublin published this translation from the Latin in 1756. Leland had earlier published THE HISTORY OF THE LIFE AND REIGN OF PHILIP, KING OF MACEDON, an important work on early Macedonia and Greece (copies available).

Impressão sobre tecido de seda, utilizando duas chapas gravadas sobre dois fólios separados, juntos posteriormente. Gravura de grande dimensão e qualidade gráfica.

Vicente de Fora; até a jusante o Forte de S. Julião da Barra.

Ao centro em rodapé apresenta uma cartela com a palavra "Lissabon" ladeada por dois homens (figuras de acompanhamento trajando ao estilo do século xvii, segurando um deles o Escudo Real português (anterior a D. João V) e o outro a Esfera Armilar. Abaixo encontra-se uma pequena carta marítima da Barra do Rio Tejo.

[Overview of Lisbon from the River Tagus south bank. By Friederich Schoenemam. Hamburg [Germany] 1756. Engraving of 41x116 cm. Printed in silk, made out of 2 assembled plates on 2 separate pieces of silk fabric, with occasional losses of the impression due to creases and old folds, which attest to the prolonged storage of this engraving in a book or folder. Magnificent panoramic view of Lisbon in the 17th-18th Century, taken from the River Tagus south bank, representing the city in great detail: spanning upstream from the Monastery of S. Vicente de Fora; and downstream to the Fort St. Julian da Barra. It is possible to distinguish in detail all urban malls built in the city (not just the main buildings as is usual in other prints), as well as its inhabitants in their daily tasks, as it is usual in Dutch maps since Ortelius. The center footer features a cartouche with the word "Lissabon" flanked by two men (the figures of valets wearing contemporary 17th century style clothing), one of them holding the Portuguese Royal Shield (prior to King John V) and the other the Armillary Sphere. Below is a small miniature map of the mouth of the river or "Barra do Rio Tejo". At the extreme right is an Inquisition fire, and a gallows (tripod-style English Tyborn Tree) for execution of criminals, both beeing operated. Provided with an extensive legend of notorious places inside the city (numbering 71 references) written in two languages: German and French. Not present in any Portuguese bibliographical reference.

        La noblesse commercante

      chez Duchesne. Pp. 215 (1). Con bell'antiporta allegorica incisa in rame. Unito a: SAINTE FOY (DE) PHILIPPE AUGUSTE. La noblesse militaire ou le patriote francois. S.l.n., 1756. Pp. v (1), 210. Due parti in un volume di cm. 16. Legatura del tempo in piena pelle con titoli su tass. e fregi floreali al dorso; tagli rossi. Antiche firme di possesso al frontespizio, trascurabili mende alle cuffie, sporadiche fioriture, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. Prima opera: Gabriel Francois Coyer (1707-1782), gesuita francese, fu letterato e pensatore economico forse più apprezzato fuori dai confini nazionali; fu infatti membro della Società Reale di Londra. La Noblesse commercante fu la sua principale opera. Pubblicata nel 1756 scatenò numerose reazioni dottrinali, sfociate in altrettante edizioni a stampa. Le tesi contenute nella Noblesse, rivolte al progresso dell'economia, ruotavano intorno all'affermazione di limiti da imporre agli aristocratici nell'esercizio delle attività commerciali. Nello stesso anno (nel giro di pochi mesi) uscirono diverse edizioni. Cfr. Barbier III, 417; Kress 5504; Einaudi 1388. Seconda opera: Philippe Auguste de Sainte Foy (1721-1785), conte e cavaliere d'Arcq, scrisse questo saggio in risposta alla Noblesse commercante di Coyer, affermando principi tradizionali basati sulla stretta relazione tra nobiltà e dignità militare. Anche in questo caso uscirono diverse edizioni nel medesimo anno, distinguibili dal numero delle pagine. La nostra edizione al frontespizio riporta "troisieme edition", ma appare assolutamente conforme all'edizione originale descritta nel catalogo Einaudi. Cfr. Barbier, III, 418; Einaudi, 149; Kress 5490; Goldsmiths 9138..

        Veduta dell'avanzo laterale del Portico che circondava la Cella del Tempio di Antonino Pio, inoggi la Dogana di Terra.

      Acquaforte e bulino, 1756 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Dalla serie Le Antichità Romane, prima edizione del 1756 edita da Bouchard e Gravier. Meravigliosa prova, ricca di toni, impressa a inchiostro bruno su carta vergata coeva, con pieni margini ed in perfetto stato di conservazione. Henry Focillon, nel suo saggio del 1918, suppone che il Piranesi prepari ed incida le tavole per l'opera tra il 1750 ed il 1756, tuttavia, elementi architettonici fanno risalire alcune al 1746. In realtà le tavole più antiche utilizzate nella raccolta risalgono probabilmente ad anni ancora precedenti, come sembra suggerire sia l'estrema complessità dell'opera, legata ad un lunghissimo lavoro di preparazione e ricerca, sia l'oscillazione stilistica riscontrabile comparando le varie tavole. Ad ogni modo, la grandiosità delle Antichità Romane del Piranesi non sta solamente nel grande lavoro grafico prodotto dall'artista: l'opera risulta infatti fondamentale come innovazione metodologica nel settore dell'archeologia a lei contemporanea, con l'utilizzo di scritti che sono essenziali per comprendere il pensiero dell'autore e l'innovazione del metodo piranesiano. Si può quindi sostenere, come giustamente fa notare il Focillon, che l'artista veneziano fondi l'archeologia moderna. Questa innovazione comporta, però, un enorme stacco e una grande divergenza con il pensiero e la cultura ufficiale ed accademica del periodo - di derivazione anglosassone - causando enormi polemiche di cui Piranesi fu bersaglio, e il fiorire di una negativa aneddotica intorno alla sua persona, il cui scopo era quello di ristabilire l'egemonia minacciata della cultura "classica". Il principale pensiero espresso nelle Antichità Romane consiste nel documentare e conservare in effige un patrimonio monumentale che andava di giorno in giorno sgretolandosi, linea di condotta che andava contro l'atteggiamento culturale di amatori ed antiquari, il cui piacere era puramente estetico, non disdegnando all'occorrenza, l'asporto di frammenti anche vistosi di antichità a titolo di puro collezionismo o alla stregua di souvenir. La principale novità della sua impostazione, consiste nell'unificare in un solo momento le operazioni di scavo, di rilievo, le indagini strutturali e la misurazione con lo studio delle fonti letterarie, a cui egli fa riferimento diretto. Questo momento di unificazione è rappresentato dallo studio topografico, che unito alla tecnica di rilievo, alla conoscenza dei materiali e delle tecniche antiche, allo scavo ed al sopralluogo dava luce all'archeologia, ovvero lo studio della storia antica. "Etching with engraving, 1756, signed at lower right. From the Antichità Romane, first edition by the French publisher Bouchard and Gravier in 1756. A great impression, printed with brown ink on contemporary laid, strong, paper, with margins, perfect conditions. The first edition of this work, in four volumes, was published in Rome in 1756 at the printing-works of Angelo Rotili at the Massimo alle Colonne Palace, by Bouchard and Gravier, book-dealers and tradesmen located in Rome near the church of St. Marcel at the Via del Corso. This collection included a portrait of Piranesi, engraved by Felice Porziani, and a dedication to James Caulfield, count of Charlemont. This dedication was later abolished in the aftermath of a quarrel, described by Piranesi in his Lettere di Giustificazione [Letters of Justification] (1757), which also gave rise to three different versions of this first original edition (May 1756). These different versions are distinguishable from the title-page of the first volume, which initially was dedicated to the Irish aristocrat, then exhibited a cancelled dedication and coat of arms and, finally, bore a Latin motto written by the artist ""Aevo Suo Posteri set Utilitari Publicae"". Henry Focillon, in his 1918 treatise, presumed that Piranesi prepared and engraved the plates for this collection between 1750 and 1756, although some architectural features could have a few of them dating back to 1746. Actually, the oldest plates included in this collection probably date back even further, as suggested by the extraordinary complexity of this work, due to a prolonged phase of preparation and research, together with the stylistic alterations which can be observed by comparing the different plates. The magnificence of Piranesi's Antichità Romane, however, is not only in the artist's large graphic output. Indeed, this work is of primary importance from the standpoint of methodological innovation within the framework of contemporary archaeology, with the utilisation of texts which are of essential importance for the comprehension of the author's ideas and of the innovations implied in Piranesi's methodology. It can be asserted, as correctly emphasised by Focillon, that the Venetian architect founded modern archaeology. However, this new-fashioned approach implied an important disassociation and a significant deviation from the convictions and the official and academic culture of the time, which was of Anglo-Saxon derivation. This gave rise to a serious controversy, whose target was Piranesi, and to an adverse anecdotal literature concerning his person, the objective being the re-establishment of the endangered authority of the culture it was threatening. The main motivation behind the Antichità Romane was the documentation and preservation, utilising illustrations, of a heritage of ancient monuments which was being ravaged on a daily basis. This approach was incompatible with the one held by amateurs and antiquarians who only took pleasure from aesthetic contemplation and would not refrain from occasionally removing rather imposing parts from ancient relics for their private collections or, more simply, as souvenirs. The main new feature in his procedure was to unify into a single space the acts of excavating, surveying, structural inquiries and measurement together with the analysis of literary sources, the latter of which he examined for himself. This step of unification is characterised by the study of topography which, together with surveying techniques, the knowledge of antique procedures and materials, excavations and on-site inspections, gave rise to archaeology, in other words to the study of ancient history. Therefore, the four volumes comprised in this collection are the central nucleus, the fulcrum around which all of Piranesi's activity revolved, constituting the accomplishment and focal point of a method of inquiry and comprehension of the ancient city of Rome and, at the same time, the starting point for analogous and complementary works, which can be considered as additional proofs of his interpretation. Consequently, the Antichità can be regarded as an attempt to furnish a unified account of the city from its foundation up to the times of the last emperors, identifying monuments, areas and spaces, set side by side with prosaic and common aspects of the city, such as bridges and streets, which help to bestow it with an animated and vibrating atmosphere." Focillon 168; Wilton Ely 303

Prima edizione francese di An Essay towards a Natural History of the Corallines and other Marine Productions found on the coasts of Great Britain and Ireland, trattato naturalistico sui coralli ("un système d'une nouvelle classe d'êtres jusqu'à présent inconnus") della Gran Bretagna e dell'Irlanda, autentico classico nella storia della biologia marina e una delle principali opere del grande naturalista britannico (in Irlanda, 1710-Londra, 1776). La monografia, pubblicata in Inghilterra nel 1755, discorre anche delle spugne (identificate per primo dall'Ellis come animali) e di altri animali marini affini ai coralli e fornisce un curioso resoconto su un grosso polpo pescato nei mari artici da dei balenieri nel 1753. L'ultimo capitolo contiene la descrizione di un microscopio acquatico inventato dal Cuff, poi denominato "microscopio acqua Ellisches". "Ellis's zoophyte descriptions and professionally drawn engravings, and his scientific approach, were outstanding. His two longest books, Natural History of the Corallines…and the posthumous Natural History of Zoophytes (1786, partly written by Solander), were seminal. In the 1750s he was one of the British Museum's first noteworthy scientific visitors. He became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1754 and was its Copley medallist in 1767." (ODNB). Nissen, BBI, 590.

        Encrypted message using number code

      1756 - Ms in ink. Single page. Folio. Folded twice, repairs to old folds. New Orleans, December, A very rare encrypted despatch sent from French New Orleans by Louis Billouart de Kerlerec, Governor of Louisiana, to the Secretaire d'Etat a la Marine et aux Colonies. Kerlerec became governor of Louisiana in 1753, replacing Vaudril. ?Despite total French neglect of the colony during the Seven Years' War, Kerlerec manages to maintain aggressive defence of the Mississippi Valley, by funnelling Louisiana's meagre military resources into the Fort Duquesne area and by first luring the Cherokee out of the English camp and then mobilizing them against their former allies? (Louisiana Personalities ). ?This message appears to be encrypted in the nomenclator, the standard cryptosystem of the time. The nomenclator had developed by the 1700s into a list of about 1000 names and common words with their equivalents, usually three or four digits, and was chiefly used by governments. If a cryptoanalyst had enough long messages to provide statistics and other clues, such as partial encipherments, he could solve them. When ambassadors or high ranking military officers were given nomenclators to use on assignment, copies often survive in archives. When individuals make them up for personal use, they are rarely found and consequently anyone seeking to read the messages encrypted using them has to reconstruct them. Since this usually requires a fair volume of ciphertext, individual cryptograms are rarely solved? (Kahn).

Henry Focillon, nel suo saggio del 1918, suppone che il Piranesi prepari ed incida le tavole per l'opera tra il 1750 ed il 1756, tuttavia, elementi architettonici fanno risalire alcune al 1746. In realtà le tavole più antiche utilizzate nella raccolta risalgono probabilmente ad anni ancora precedenti, come sembra suggerire sia l'estrema complessità dell'opera, legata ad un lunghissimo lavoro di preparazione e ricerca, sia l'oscillazione stilistica riscontrabile comparando le varie tavole. Ad ogni modo, la grandiosità delle Antichità Romane del Piranesi non sta solamente nel grande lavoro grafico prodotto dall'artista: l'opera risulta infatti fondamentale come innovazione metodologica nel settore dell'archeologia a lei contemporanea, con l'utilizzo di scritti che sono essenziali per comprendere il pensiero dell'autore e l'innovazione del metodo piranesiano. Si può quindi sostenere, come giustamente fa notare il Focillon, che l'artista veneziano fondi l'archeologia moderna. Questa innovazione comporta, però, un enorme stacco e una grande divergenza con il pensiero e la cultura ufficiale ed accademica del periodo - di derivazione anglosassone - causando enormi polemiche di cui Piranesi fu bersaglio, e il fiorire di una negativa aneddotica intorno alla sua persona, il cui scopo era quello di ristabilire l'egemonia minacciata della cultura "classica". Il principale pensiero espresso nelle Antichità Romane consiste nel documentare e conservare in effige un patrimonio monumentale che andava di giorno in giorno sgretolandosi, linea di condotta che andava contro l'atteggiamento culturale di amatori ed antiquari, il cui piacere era puramente estetico, non disdegnando all'occorrenza, l'asporto di frammenti anche vistosi di antichità a titolo di puro collezionismo o alla stregua di souvenir. La principale novità della sua impostazione, consiste nell'unificare in un solo momento le operazioni di scavo, di rilievo, le indagini strutturali e la misurazione con lo studio delle fonti letterarie, a cui egli fa riferimento diretto. Questo momento di unificazione è rappresentato dallo studio topografico, che unito alla tecnica di rilievo, alla conoscenza dei materiali e delle tecniche antiche, allo scavo ed al sopralluogo dava luce all'archeologia, ovvero lo studio della storia antica. "Etching with engraving, 1756, signed at lower right. From the Antichità Romane, first edition by the French publisher Bouchard and Gravier in 1756. A great impression, printed with brown ink on contemporary laid, strong, paper with "double encircled fleur-de-lys with letter CB" watermark (Robison 33), with margins, perfect conditions. The first edition of this work, in four volumes, was published in Rome in 1756 at the printing-works of Angelo Rotili at the Massimo alle Colonne Palace, by Bouchard and Gravier, book-dealers and tradesmen located in Rome near the church of St. Marcel at the Via del Corso. This collection included a portrait of Piranesi, engraved by Felice Porziani, and a dedication to James Caulfield, count of Charlemont. This dedication was later abolished in the aftermath of a quarrel, described by Piranesi in his Lettere di Giustificazione [Letters of Justification] (1757), which also gave rise to three different versions of this first original edition (May 1756). These different versions are distinguishable from the title-page of the first volume, which initially was dedicated to the Irish aristocrat, then exhibited a cancelled dedication and coat of arms and, finally, bore a Latin motto written by the artist ""Aevo Suo Posteri set Utilitari Publicae"". Henry Focillon, in his 1918 treatise, presumed that Piranesi prepared and engraved the plates for this collection between 1750 and 1756, although some architectural features could have a few of them dating back to 1746. Actually, the oldest plates included in this collection probably date back even further, as suggested by the extraordinary complexity of this work, due to a prolonged phase of preparation and research, together with the stylistic alterations which can be observed by comparing the different plates. The magnificence of Piranesi's Antichità Romane, however, is not only in the artist's large graphic output. Indeed, this work is of primary importance from the standpoint of methodological innovation within the framework of contemporary archaeology, with the utilisation of texts which are of essential importance for the comprehension of the author's ideas and of the innovations implied in Piranesi's methodology. It can be asserted, as correctly emphasised by Focillon, that the Venetian architect founded modern archaeology. However, this new-fashioned approach implied an important disassociation and a significant deviation from the convictions and the official and academic culture of the time, which was of Anglo-Saxon derivation. This gave rise to a serious controversy, whose target was Piranesi, and to an adverse anecdotal literature concerning his person, the objective being the re-establishment of the endangered authority of the culture it was threatening. The main motivation behind the Antichità Romane was the documentation and preservation, utilising illustrations, of a heritage of ancient monuments which was being ravaged on a daily basis. This approach was incompatible with the one held by amateurs and antiquarians who only took pleasure from aesthetic contemplation and would not refrain from occasionally removing rather imposing parts from ancient relics for their private collections or, more simply, as souvenirs. The main new feature in his procedure was to unify into a single space the acts of excavating, surveying, structural inquiries and measurement together with the analysis of literary sources, the latter of which he examined for himself. This step of unification is characterised by the study of topography which, together with surveying techniques, the knowledge of antique procedures and materials, excavations and on-site inspections, gave rise to archaeology, in other words to the study of ancient history. Therefore, the four volumes comprised in this collection are the central nucleus, the fulcrum around which all of Piranesi's activity revolved, constituting the accomplishment and focal point of a method of inquiry and comprehension of the ancient city of Rome and, at the same time, the starting point for analogous and complementary works, which can be considered as additional proofs of his interpretation. Consequently, the Antichità can be regarded as an attempt to furnish a unified account of the city from its foundation up to the times of the last emperors, identifying monuments, areas and spaces, set side by side with prosaic and common aspects of the city, such as bridges and streets, which help to bestow it with an animated and vibrating atmosphere." Focillon 200; Wilton Ely 335

        The Naval History Of Britain, From The Earliest Periods Of Which There Are Accounts In History, To The Conclusion Of The Year M.DCC.LVI. Compiled From The Papers Of The Late Honourable Captain George Berkley, Commander Of His Majesty's Ship WINDSOR

      T. Osborne and J. Shifton, London 1756 - Large Crown Folio, 16 3/4 tall by 10 1/2 wide. [17], 2-576 - (577 is mis-numbered as 573) - so - [(573-706)], [2]. This is a mis-numbering flaw only - all contents complete with every catchword matching. This is a complete text. Contains extensive Contents listing just after the title page with a minimal 2 page Index at the rear. Some old ink writing on the top of the title page and the top of the frontispiece with a 1849 date. Contains 14 full page engravings, including a frontispiece, fold-out maps, scenes of Naval action, and portraits of Naval heroes. Some offsetting to opposite pages. Wide margins throughout, untrimmed with no marginal notations. With extensive information on The Spanish Armada, listing the Spanish Fleet - "arrogantly called the Invincible Armada," with all ships identified by name, number of guns, and tonnage. The entire British Fleet is also listed by ship and Captains. This copy now handsomely re-bound in full navy blue leather with lettering in gilt on the spine. New marbled endpapers with several new blank pages included. The binding is signed "Hales." Lowndes gives the publication date as 1757, which I suspect is true given that the book covers events up to and including 1756. This has become an extremely rare volume with no copies listed in WorldCat. Smollet, in his History states ".excercised great influence over contemporary public opinion on naval matters." Lowndes Bibliographer's Manual, Allibone, and Bibliography Of British History by Pargellis and Medley. Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Raccolta milanese dell'anno 1756 [-1757].

      nella Stamperia di Antonio Agnelli. 2 volumi in-4° (cm. 22,6), legature in cartonato d'attesa con titolo ms. su etichette al dorso; carte in ottimo stato. Tutto il pubblicato di un'interessante idea editoriale che precedeva di dieci anni il Caffè dei Verri. L'Agnelli si cimentava in una battaglia culturale insieme ai Trasformati, illuministi a metà che aprivano con moderazione ai temi della vita contemporanea. La Raccolta «si distribuiva un foglio per settimana, e vari opuscoli di viventi, e di morti autori contiene» [Annali letterarj d'Italia, Modena 1762, p. 185]. Pur tuttavia i Trasformati si offesero delle critiche de recensori [Memorie per servire alla storia letteraria, Venezia 1756, VIII, 29] e mollarono l'Agnelli, che per l'anno successivo fece da sé: «Sono venuto in determinazione di non defraudare il pubblico di alcune opericciuole» [p.(3)]. Cfr. R. Martinoni, Un foglio erudito lombardo del Settecento. La Raccolta milanese (1756-1757), in Archivio Storico Lombardo CXVII (1991) pp. 203-257. Ottimo esemplare.

Binding a little rubbed, head cap and corners worn. Stain at the top of last leaves French chemist, Nicolas LEMERY was born at Rouen on the 17th of November 1645. After learning pharmacy in his native town he became a pupil of C. Glaser's in Paris, and then went to Montpellier, where he began to lecture on chemistry. He next established a pharmacy in Paris, still continuing his lectures. Lemery did not concern himself much with theoretical speculations, but holding chemistry to be a demonstrative science, confined himself to the straightforward exposition of facts and experiments. In consequence, his lecture-room was thronged with people of all sorts, anxious to hear a man who shunned the barren obscurities of the alchemists, and did not regard the quest of the philosopher's stone and the elixir of life as the sole end of his science. Of his Cours de chymie (1675) he lived to see 13 editions, and for a century it maintained its reputation as a standard work. The 1756's edition (the first one in 4to), enlarged by Baron is considered as the best one. Dorbon [2600] In 4 2065g. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Essai sur la Nature du Commerce en général traduit de l'anglois

      chez Fletcher Gyles, dans Holborn [Guillyn], Londres [Paris] 1756 - In-12 (160x95 mm.), pp. 427, (5). Fregio al frontespizio. Ex libris del conte Ignazio Zanardi della Virgiliana. Ottimo e freschissimo esemplare conservato in una legatura coeva in piena pelle marmorizzata, dorso a nervi con scomparti riccamente decorati in oro, titolo inciso in oro su tassello al dorso. Tagli colorati di rosso. Esemplare candido e frusciante. Seconda edizione (e.o. 1755), molto rara, di uno dei più importanti trattati di economia moderna. A giudizio di William Stanley Jevons e di altri autorevoli studiosi di materia economica, il saggio del Cantillon è la più autentica opera fondativa dell'economia politica, assai più della Ricchezza delle Nazioni di Adam Smith o dell'Aritmetica politica di William Petty, contenendo inoltre un'anticipazione quasi completa della teoria malthusiana della popolazione. L'opera, nonostante l'indicazione evidentemente mendace al titolo, non fu mai tradotta dall'inglese e non fu mai pubblicata a Londra dall'immaginario Fletcher Gyles, ma a Parigi e dal Guillyn. L'autore (1680-1734), di origini irlandesi, trascorse buona parte della sua vita a Parigi, esercitando con successo l'attività di banchiere. Morì a Londra in circostanze misteriose, forse assassinato dal suo cuoco. Bibliografia: Kress, 5495. Goldsmiths, 8989. Einaudi, 846. Higgs, Bib. of Economics, 938. Palgrave, Dictionary of Political Economy: "The influence of the work is evidenced not by the number but by the distinction of its students, including Gournay, Quesnay, Mirabeau, Turgot and Adam Smith. It gave birth to Mirabeau's L 'Ami des hommes [an edition of which is in the present sale] and apparently suggested much of the Tableau oeconomique of Quesnay and parts of the Wealth of Nations".
