        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.

        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).

        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..

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."

Antiporta incisa su rame e finemente acquerellata, 39 tavv. incise su rame f.t. in fine coloritura acquerellata, alcune delle quali ripiegate. Dedicatoria alla Regina di Svezia. Qualche arrossatura. Timbro di privata biblioteca. Buon esemplare. 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).

        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.

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 215; Wilton Ely 350

        Accion de la Real Compa. De Comercio establecida en Barcelona

      1756 - Rare share of the Real Compañia de Comercio de Barcelona printed on vellum, incorporating a fascinating view of the city. 1756. Barcelona. 16 x 12 inches. Printed on Vellum, with manuscript additions, and company seal; the additions are signatures of the various directors and details concerning the sale of the share certificate. Minor soiling, but quite nice for a view printed on vellum. 2,000 $ A magnificent view of Barcelona, engraved on vellum, by the prominent Catalan artist Manuel Tramullas, illustrating a share certificate for the Royal Trading Company of Barcelona, issued in 1756. This beautiful work features a panorama of Barcelona, framed in a fine architectural border, surmounted by a picture of the Virgin Mary and the Christ Child, who symbolically protect the city. In the view, one can see the spires of the Barcelona&#146;s Gothic cathedral, the city&#146;s elaborate defenses, including the fortress atop Montjuïc. Below is a fine register of text surrounded by rococo border, with the terms of the issue of the stock certificate. The piece was engraved on vellum in order to confer its durability and lend its added gravitas. This share certificate was especially engraved for holders of the inaugural shares of the Real Compañía de Comercio Establecido de Barcelona (The Royal Trading Company of Barcelona). The Company was charted in 1755 on the orders of Ferdinand VI, and was given a monopoly on trade between Catalonia and Spanish Caribbean colonies of Santa Domingo, Puerto Rico and the Isla de Margarita (Venezuela). At the beginning of the 18th Century the Spanish Crown realized that the colonial trading system, which was under heavily government control, was woefully inefficient, leading to shortages of goods in the colonies and anemic profits for the royal treasury. Granting trading monopolies to a variety of select private companies was seen as a way to rejuvenate colonial trade. Barcelona had for many centuries been one of the most important trading ports in the Mediterranean. However, in the early 18th Century its economy took a severe blow, from which it only very slowly recovered. During the War of Spanish Succession (1700-14), the Catalan nobles backed the losing side, preferring the established Habsburg Dynasty over the rival Bourbons. The victorious Spanish King, Philip V, vowed revenge on Catalonia. In 1716, he instituted the Nueva Planta Decrees, which rescinded Catalonia&#146;s long-cherished autonomy and placed many economic restrictions on the region&#146;s economy. This saw a marked decline in trade from the port of Barcelona and by the 1750s this factor was weighing down the entire Spanish economy. The creation of the Real Compañía de Comercio was an attempt to reestablish Barcelona&#146;s leading role in maritime trade. Engraved by Ignacio Valls after a design by Tramullas Roig (1715-1791), prominent Catalan artists of the 18th century. He was a student and collaborator of Antoni Viladomat i Manalt (1678-1755), with whom he painted a series of frescos in the Barcelona Cathedral, that are today considered one of the highlights of the venerable church. He later specialized in drawing and painting urban life in Barcelona, and his works are considered today to be critical primary sources on contemporary Catalan urban life. His subjects were diverse, ranging from musicians to chocolatiers to opera performances. Many of his works were engraved, of which his plates for a rare book describing the elaborate funeral of the Queen Consort of Charles III, Reales exequias que a su augusta soberana Da. Maria Amalia de Saxonia (Barcelona, 1762), are especially admired by collectors. His brother Francisco Tramullas (1717-1773) was also a well-regarded painter, who specialized in religious scenes, completing important frescos in the cathedrals of Barcelona and Tarragona.

        Veduta interna del Sepolcro di S. Costanza, fabbricato da Constantino Magno, ed erroneamente detto il Tempio di Bacco, inoggi Chiesa della medesima Santa.

      "Acquaforte e bulino, 1756, firmata in lastra . Esemplare della contemporanea tiratura romana, terzo stato di sei, con indirizzo e prezzo, stampata dall'autore nella propria tipografia di Strada Felice. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ""doppio cerchio e giglio"", con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Nel margine inferiore si trovano delle contemporanee scritte ad inchiostro bruno, traduzioni in lingua francese delle iscrizioni incise. 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. Una vista dell'interno della chiesa di Santa Constanza, tratta da ""Vedute di Roma"". Molto evocativo l'inconsueta forma circolare della chiesa del IV secolo. In primo piano un gruppo di uomini e donne in abito aristocratico. La chiesa di Santa Constanza è una delle più antiche di Roma, e conserva la stessa forma fin dal IV secolo dC. La sua costruzione si lega tradizionalmente all'imperatore Costantino che l'avrabbe voluta come mausoleo per la figlia Constantina. Studi più recenti, però, suggeriscono, invece, che la chiesa fu eretta per Helena, un'altra figlia di Costantino e moglie dell'imperatore Giuliano." "Etching and engraving, 1756, signed on plate. Example from the contemporary Roman Edition. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark ""encircled fleur de lys"", with margins, good condition. Ink addidition at the lower white margin, trasnslation of the title made by a contemporary French hand. 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. A view of the interior of the Church of Santa Constanza, from the Vedute di Roma. The view brilliantly evokes the unusual circular layout of the 4th century church, and the foreground is populated by a number of men and women in Italian aristocratic dress. The Church of Santa Constanza is one of Rome's oldest, having stood in much the same form since the 4th century AD. Traditionally viewed as having been constructed by the emperor Constantine as a mausoleum for his daughter Constantina, more recent scholarship suggests it was likely built instead for Helena, another daughter of Constantine and wife of the Emperor Julian." Hind 37, III/VI; Focillon 811.

(Roger, Sciences de la vie p. 691). Le Père de Lignac, oratorien, était un ami intime et le collaborateur de Réaumur. L&#146;académicien Bouguer participa également à cet ouvrage."L&#146;objet essentiel [des premières lettres] est de montrer que Buffon "contredit la génèse en tout", ruine la religion et chasse Dieu de l&#146;histoire naturelle." (Roger, Buffon p. 257)."Les dernières lettres, qui portent sur la génération spontanée et les expériences de Needham, sont les seules à avoir un intérêt scientifique." (Roger, Buffon p. 258). On y trouve une réfutation, sous le contrôle de Réaumur, des expériences et des idées de Needham. (cf. Daumas).

Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.
