        Veduta degli Avanzi delle Case de Cesari sul Palatino...

      1756. 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, 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. L'opera in questione rappresenta uno dei fogli più ricercati dell'autore, che con l'abilità dell'uso dell'acquaforte riesce a trasformare il muro di pietre in materia viva e lucente. "Etching, from the first edition, third issue, of ""Le Antichità Romane. 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."

Annotazioni in greco alla prima carta bianca del primo volume e numerose chiose marginali manoscritte in lingua greca. Qualche normale fioritura e 2 carte (pp. 173 - 176 del volume dell'Iliade) perfettamente ed anticamente rimarginate (provenienti da un esemplare in carta normale?). Magnifico esemplare a pieni margini. Superba impressione settecentesca di Glasgow, curata da James Moor e George Muirhead, dei poemi omerici (l'Iliade occupa le due parti del primo vol., l'Odissea il secondo, che contiene altresì la "Batracomiomachia", i cosiddetti "Inni Omerici" e altri componimenti che la tradizione volle ascrivere ad Omero), mirabile per nitore tipografico (lo stesso Gibbon era solito leggere Omero in questa edizione, che egli preferiva a tutte le altre). "One of the most splendid specimen of Greek typography existant. Its accuracy is equal to his magnificence" (Lowder). "Gibbon famously read Homer with more pleasure in the Glasgow edition; each sheet was six times revised by various literary men" (Dibdin). "The type was specially cut by the University typefounder for the edition, and it makes the first deliberate break from the tradition of copying Garamond's grec du roi which had been strangling Greek type design for over 200 years; none of the Foulis's other books were typographically both so revolutionary and so successful" (Gaskell, The Book Collector 1952, p. 106).

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. I quattro volumi dell'opera rappresentano pertanto il nucleo centrale, il perno stesso su cui si incentra e si svolge l'intera opera piranesiana, costituendo il punto di arrivo e messa a fuoco di un metodo d'indagine e conoscenza dell'antica città di Roma e allo stesso tempo il punto di partenza per le opere successive di argomento analogo e complementare, che possiamo considerare come dimostrazioni ulteriori della sua interpretazione. Le Antichità quindi si possono considerare come lo sforzo di fornire un quadro unitario della città dalle origini al periodo degli ultimi imperatori, attraverso l'individuazione dei monumenti delle zone e degli spazi, ai quali vengono affiancati gli aspetto prosaici e quotidiani della città, rappresentati dai ponti e dalle strade, che contribuiscono a costruire l'immagine di un corpo vivo e pulsante." "A topographical map of Rome depicting the paths of the ancient aqueducts. The inscription ""Dichiarazione delle note della Tavola"", explains the contents that include named walls of Rome and subterranean aqueducts as well as identifying footprints of ancient remains. ""Dichiarazione delle note della Tavola: A. Mura odierne di Roma B. Mura di Roma anteriori all'Imperatore Aureliano Aquedotto arcuato della Marcia, Tepula, e Giulia Aquedotto arcuato della Claudia e Anione Nuovo Archi Neroniani Archi Antoniniani Aquedotto sostruito Aquedotto sotterraneo Rivo sotterraneo, porzionario delle acque Circonferenza delle Regioni antiche di Roma Nota delle Vie antiche Le rimanenti note son dichiarate o nella Tavola, o nella Spiegazione consecutiva della medesima Piedi Antichi Romani "" Inset are technical drawings of aqueduct mechanisms. This is the plate XXXVIII of tome I of 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."

        Catalogus Codicum Manuscriptorum qui in Bibliotheca Riccardiana Florentiae adservantur

      in quo multa Opuscula anecdota in lucem passim proferuntur et plura ad Historiam litterariam locupletandam inlustrandamque idonea, antea ignota exhibentur Jo. Lamio. Engraved frontis., engraved vignette on title, & one engraved plate (reproducing specimens of handwriting). xxvi, [2], 436 pp. Folio, cont. vellum over boards. Liburni: A. Sanctini, 1756. The collections of early books, manuscripts, and works of art in the Biblioteca Riccardiana of Florence were begun in the 16th century by Riccardo Romolo Riccardi. In the last decades of the 17th century it was significantly enlarged by Francesco Riccardi, partially as a result of the dowry of his wife, Cassandra Capponi. Her father Vincenzio, an erudite and famous man of letters and science closely connected with the circle of Galileo, had left his daughter part of his extensive library of scientific and philosophical texts. The collections were housed in the magnificent palazzo in Via Larga (today Via Cavour), which was purchased from the Medicis in 1659, and is today known as the Palazzo Medici Riccardi. The Riccardi family was unusual in that they allowed the public to use the library throughout most of the 18th century. The present catalogue, prepared by Giovanni Lami (1697-1770), the famous librarian and antiquarian, describes about 3000 medieval and Renaissance manuscripts. This was one of the finest collections of early manuscripts in private hands at the time. It included many splendid illuminated and text manuscripts as well as autograph manuscripts by Petrarch, Boccaccio, Savonarola and of the greatest humanists including Alberti, Ficino, Poliziano and Pico della Mirandola. Fine copy. Bookplate A.R.A. Hobson. With a note on front paste-down endpaper: "Coll & perf: FCB. May. 1850." This was Francis Capper Brooke (1810-86). ❧ Nicolini 22.

Further he writes about the inhabitants, particulary the slaves and their living conditions. At end he gives a short account of his travels to St. Eustache and St. Christopher.

First edition in French (1st ed., in English: 1755); this is one of the few copies which has fine and delicate contemporary coloring. Ellis (ca. 1710-76), whom Linnaeus termed a "bright star of natural history" and "the main support of natural history in England," was one of the earliest marine zoologists. With the Swede Daniel Solander (1733-1782), he discovered that sponges are animals. "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.

        Historisch kritisches Verzeichniss alter und neuer Schriftsteller von dem Erdboeben.

      8vo., 112pp., with a whole-page figure on p.105, bound in 19th century German half calf over mottled boards, spine gilt, labelled and lettered. A fine copy. The world's first bio-bibliography of earthquakes and seismology. Christoph Gottlob Grundig (born September 5, 1707; died August 9, 1780) was a German Protestant theologian, mineralogist and publicist. His interest in mineralogy had been nurtured when he was at school in Freiberg under Bergrat Johann Friedrich Henckel. From 1737 he held the post of evangelical pastor in Hermann village where he married and raised a family. From 1747 he edited a monthly magazine on the natural history and art history of Upper Saxony. Following his move to become senior pastor at Schneeberg in 1749, and following the dramatic Lisbon earthquake of 1755, Grundig gained particular credit for this, the world's first seismological bibliography. When he died in August 1780 his estate included a large library and a comprehensive collection of some 3300 specimens of minerals.

        TRIUMPHO DA RELIGIAÕ.

      - Poema Epico-Polemico; que A? SANTIDADE DO PAPA BENEDICTO XIV. DEDICA FRANCISCO DE PINA E DE MELLO, Moço Fidalgo da Casa de Sua Magestade, e Academico da Academia Real da Historia Portugueza. COIMBRA: Na Officina de ANTONIO SIMOENS FERREYRA, Impressor da Universidade, Anno de 1756. In 8º (20,5x14,5 cm) com [24], lv, [i], 331 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele. Exemplar com ex-libris armoriado da época; e títulos de posse oleográficos nas folhas de guarda. Inocêncio III, 35 e IX, 361: Triunfo da Religião ; « Triumpho da Religião: Poema epico-polemico, que á sanctidade do Papa Benedicto XIV dedica, etc. Coimbra, na Offic. de Antonio Simões Ferreira 1756. 4.º de XXIV-LVIII-331 pag. Consta de nove livros, ou cantos de versos hendecassílabos de rimas pareadas, e é precedido de um extenso prolegómeno para a boa inteligência e conhecimento do poema. Esta obra, cuja dedicatória o papa agradeceu ao autor, em um breve muito honroso (datado de Roma aos 11 de Setembro de 1753) que nela vem transcrito, suscitou varias criticas e contestações, umas impressas e outras manuscritas, ás quais Pina respondeu por duas vezes, em dous opúsculos que vão lançados adiante nas obras em prosa. (Vej. também os artigos D. Joaquim Bernardes de Sancta Anna, e José Jacinto Nunes de Mello.) É hoje pouco conhecida, e creio que o preço dos exemplares não excede de 480 a 600 réis. O que possuo custou-me 300 réis. Alguns exemplares trazem um retrato do pontífice, que n'outros falta. [.] Francisco de Pina e de Mello, Moço Fidalgo da Casa Real, n. na vila de Montemor o velho, em 1695. Seus pais eram pessoas de mui qualificada nobreza. Cursou na Universidade de Coimbra as cadeiras de Filosofia e Cânones, sem que contudo chegasse a formar-se em alguma d'estas faculdades. Cultivando com indefessa aplicação todos os ramos de ciências, artes e literatura, pode ser de justiça considerado como um dos homens mais notavelmente eruditos entre os portugueses da sua idade. Passou a maior parte da vida na sua terra natal, entregue á lição dos livros, ou no trato das musas, a quem se votara desde a adolescência. Educado na escola espanhola, as suas primeiras poesias oferecem um caracter assaz pronunciado de gongorismo; porém a leitura e estudo dos poetas franceses criaram nele o desejo de imita-los até certo ponto, pretendendo inaugurar entre nós um gosto novo, ou para melhor dizer uma espécie de sistema misto, que por então ganhou poucos prosélitos, e foi em breve suplantado com a erecção da Arcádia. [.] Quanto á data do óbito de Francisco de Pina, é ponto ainda não de todo averiguado. [.] o Sr. Dr. J. C. Ayres de Campos escreve-me de Coimbra em 1861, asseverando que encontrara ali documento verídico e contemporâneo, pelo qual se manifesta que Pina falecera em Montemor, sua pátria, em Outubro de 1773 ».

These volumes, all that were published of the survey, are concerned with the Danish islands Bornholm, Christiansoe, Amager, Saltholm, and Samsoe. Thurah was "the most significant representative of late baroque architecture in Denmark...after cadet studies in Copenhagen, he received instruction as an officer and military engineer in 1725-1727, studies that also embraced architectural training. Travels to Germany Italy, France, Holland and England further broadened his horizons. Shortly after his return to Denmark, he received the appointment of royal architect and went on to enjoy a distinguished and prolific architectural career."-Beasley et al., Millard Architectural Collection, Volume III, Northern European Books, pp. 38-39. An uncommonly fine copy in a most handsome "mirror" binding which was a popular style in Denmark in the 18th century. The folding map in the second volume has a tear carefully repaired.

        British education: or, the source of the disorders of Great Britain. Being an essay towards proving, that the immorality, ignorance, and false taste, which so generally prevail, are the natural and necessary consequences of the present defective system of education. With an attempt to shew, that a revival of the art of speaking, and the study of our own language, might contribute, in a great measure, to the cure of those evils. In three parts. I. Of the use of these studies to religion, and morality; as also, to the support of the British constitution. II. Their absolute necessity in order to refine, ascertain, and fix the English language. III. their use in the cultivation of the imitative arts: shewing, that were the study of oratory made a necessary branch of the education of youth; poetry, musick, painting, and sculpture, might arrive at as high a pitch of perfection in England, as ever they did in Athens or Rome.

      London: R., and J. Dodsley, 1756. 8vo., xl + 536pp., endpapers foxed, title and final leaf a little browned, contemporary calf, professionally rebacked to match, spine with raised bands and gilt lines, the old label re-used. A good copy with the late 18th or early 19th century armorial bookplate of the Kerr family, with Mary Kerr's signature, dated 1800, >at head of title. First edition. Alston X, 221. 'A treatise of fundamental importance for the history of English studies and the teaching of English, discussing all aspects of language-study, including grammar, rhetoric and elocution'. [Alston] Thomas Sheridan's father had, it is said, always wanted his son to be a school master as he was. But much of the younger Thomas Sheridan's life - until he was approaching 40 - was spent acting or theatre managing in Dublin and London. The latter part of his life was devoted to teaching and lecturing on elocution. He fell out with Samuel Johnson over pensions, Johnson finally damning Sheridan as 'dull, naturally dull'.

        Articles of Agreement to Establish a Quarterly Meeting of the Attorn..

      1756. A Group of Prominent New York City Lawyers Establish a Price-Fixing Cartel [Lawyers]. [New York City]. "Articles of Agreement to Establish a Quarterly Meeting of the Attornies [sic] in the City of New York and for Setting the Sum to be Received by Them for All Business in the Profession" [Running Title]. New York, November 26, 1756. 12" x 7-1/4" leaf, text on recto, some signatures on verso. Light browning and moderate edgewear, careful recent repairs to tears. * In this 1756 document, 15 New York lawyers agree to meet regularly and appoint "a Committee for drawing a plan" for uniform fees and regulations. This was certainly a precursor to formal bar associations, which were not established until the late nineteenth century. James Duane, is named the first clerk of what is, in effect, a cartel of New York lawyers. It is signed by James Duane (mayor of New York, 1784-1789), William Livingston (signer of United States Constitution), William Smith, Jr. (author of the 1756 History of the Province of New-York and co-compiler with Livingston of The Laws of New York), John V. Cortlandt, Richard Morris, Benjamin Kissam, Whitehead Hicks (mayor of New York, 1766-1776), and eight others. The ability of lawyers to set fixed fees remained in force for over two centuries until declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1975's Goldfarb v. Virginia State Bar.
