        Le Antichità Romane.

      1757 - Rome: Bouchard & Gravier, 1756-7. 4 vols, large folio, contemporary full calf, gilt decorated in compartments, black calf title & volume labels on spines, marbled edges and endpapers. Vol I: pp. [xi]+40+xi+iii+iv+iii+[ii], engraved frontis portrait and 44 numbered plates (6 double-page, one two-sheet map, 7 single page, thirty pages with two plates), with 8 engravings in text. Vol II: pp. 63 numbered plates (one two-sheet folding plate, 46 double-page, 16 single page including title and list of plates. Vol III: 54 numbered plates (one two-sheet folding plate, 46 double-page and 10 single-page, including title). Vol IV: 57 numbered plates (five two-sheet folding, 24 double-page, 28 single page including title and index). Complete. Some spotting throughout. A fine example of the first edition, second issue, of Piranesi's monumental survey of the antiquities of Rome, with which he established himself as the leading light of the archaeology of Rome. Having spent eight years recording artefacts and buildings, including the the extensive remains of sepulchres, he published this collection of of over two hundred plates. About half of the items he recorded are now lost. According to Piranesi himself only seventy copies of the first issue had been printed before he lost patience with his patron Viscount Charlemont's failure to send funds promised to underwrite the costs of publication. He removed the dedications to each volume, expunged Charlemont's name from the text and added the text of two letters he send to the viscount demanding the promised funds (dated February 1757). He also has the first letter displayed in the Vatican, Barberini and Corsini Libraries in an attempt to embarrass Charlemont to pay, as an ink manuscript note to the letter printed here states. This footnote, composed by Piranesi and probably written by him, also appears in the British Library's example of the Antichità, so perhaps was an addition Piranesi made to every English customer's copies. Provenance: with the bookplate of Hugh, Duke of Westminster, dated 1884. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Carte de l empire d Allemagne. les routes des postes

      Artist: Vaugondy de Didier/ Gilles Robert (d) ; date: (d)1757 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 48 x 56; - description: Map of the post ways in Germany; - vita of the artist: Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723 -1786) also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV.Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name.The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sanson's grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson. From him, they inherited much of Sanson's cartographic material, which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillot's death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel.

        Carte generale du Royaume de Boheme du Duche de Silesie et des Marquisats de Moravie et de Lusace

      Artist: Homann Erben (d) ; issued in: Paris; date: (d)1757 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 48 x 54; - description: Map shows Bohemia, Moravia, Lusatia and Silesia with beautyfull heraldic cartouche; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. 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.

        S. M. Charles X. Roi de France el de Navarre. Né à Versailles. 1757

      Artist: Anonymus d ; issued in: Paris; date: d1757 - - technic: Copper print- Aquatinta; - colorit: colored; - condition: Tear on left and upper margin perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 55 x 36,5; - description: Charles X (Charles Philippe; 9 October 1757 ? 6 November 1836) was known for most of his life as the Count of Artois before he reigned as King of France from 16 September 1824 until 2 August 1830. An uncle of the uncrowned King Louis XVII, and younger brother to reigning Kings Louis XVI and Louis XVIII, he supported the latter in exile and eventually succeeded him. His rule of almost six years ended in the July Revolution of 1830, which resulted in his abdication and the election of Louis Philippe, Duke of Orléans, as King of the French. Exiled once again, Charles died in Gorizia, then part of the Austrian Empire. He was the last of the French rulers from the senior branch of the House of Bourbon descended from King Henry IV.Charles's political awakening started with the first great crisis of the monarchy in 1786, when it became apparent that the kingdom was bankrupt from previous military endeavours (in particular the Seven Years' War and the American War of Independence) and needed fiscal reform to survive. Charles supported the removal of the aristocracy's financial privileges, but was opposed to any reduction in the social privileges enjoyed by either the Church or the nobility. He believed that France's finances should be reformed without the monarchy being overthrown. In his own words, it was time for repair, not demolition.

        Essai sur les causes du déclin du commerce étranger de la Grande Bretagne.s.l., s.e., 1757.

      s.l., s.e. 1757 - Due volumi di cm. 16,5, pp. (2) 302; (2), 392. Fregio al frontespizio, alcune testatine e capilettera xil. Graziosa legatura coeva in mezza pelle con punte; dorso a 5 nervi con titoli, filetti ornati e fregi in oro. Carta decorata ai piatti e tagli spruzzati. Mancanza alla parte alta del dorso di un volume e qualche forellino; lievi fioriture e qualche sporadica macchetta. Esemplare nel complesso genuino e ben conservato. Matthew Decker (1679-1749), nativo di Amsterdam, fu direttore della East India Company ed esperto di dinamiche commerciali. Definito da Adam Smith "an excellent authority", Decker si distinse per una visione del commercio internazionale basata sulla condanna delle restrizioni economiche. Le difficoltà della politica commerciale della Gran Bretagn sono indagnate puntigliosamente in relazione al sistema fiscale vigente nella prima metà del Settecento. La soluzione proposta da Decker consisteva nell'abolizione dei dazi e nell'istituzione di una tassa sul lusso, misura finalizzata a contrastare i monopoli, a fortificare i redditi più bassi anche attraverso il rilancio dell'industria. Prima traduzione francese (prima assoluta 1744) curata da J.P. de Gua de Malves, che integrò il lavoro di Decker con un brillante commento critico. Opera interessante e poco comune. Cfr.

        Estatutos dos mercadores de retalho.

      Lisbon Miguel Rodrigues 1757 - folio, with a large armorial woodcut on title-page, (2) + 14 + (12)pp., recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A fine, crisp, copy. Probably the first edition. An interesting example of the economic reforms put in place by the Marquis de Pombal, in this case codifying national regulations affecting the retail trade, shop keepers and merchants. Pombal, secretary of state for internal affairs, and de facto Prime Minister of Portugal from 1750 to 1777, is noted for his swift and competent leadership in the aftermath of the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. He implemented sweeping economic policies in Portugal to regulate commercial activity and standardize quality throughout the country. The present rules of engagement for the retail trade were part of that reform. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De tumore ligamentorum circa articulos, fungo articulorum dicto.

      - Leiden, C. Wishoff, 1757. 4to. 4 Bl., 52 S., 1 Bl. Halbpergament d. Zeit (berieben u. verblaßt, Kanten bestoßen). Erste Ausgabe. - Medizinische Inauguraldissertation über die Gelenkgeschwulste. Der jüngere Reimarus, Sohn des bedeutenden Aufklärungsphilosophen Hermann Samuel Reimarus und Herausgeber von dessen epochemachenden Untersuchungen zur Tierpsychologie, hatte zunächst in Göttingen, dann in Leiden Medizin und Naturwissenschaften studiert. 1754 ging er nach Edinburgh, wo er in nähere Beziehung zu Erasmus Darwin, James Keir, Alexander Munro (II.) u.a. trat. Dieser studentische Freundeskreis bildete den Ursprung der Edinburgher Medizinischen Gesellschaft. 1755 ging Reimarus zusammen mit Erasmus Darwin nach London, wo sie "Zeltgenossen" (contubernalis) waren und wo Reimarus neben seinem Studium besonders die Hospitäler besuchte. Hier lernte er die Einimpfung der Blattern kennen, die er später erfolgreich in seiner Vaterstadt Hamburg eingeführt hat. 1756 ging Reimarus wieder zurück nach Leiden und promovierte mit der vorliegenden Arbeit. Sie ist besonders bemerkenswert durch ein langes 9-strophiges Widmungsgedicht von Erasmus Darwin: "Erubescere me fecit inopinato, abundantia quidem amoris captus, Vir amicissimus, Erasmus Darwin . Edinburgi olim studiorum socius, Londini etiam contubernalis". In diesem Gedicht, wohl sein poetischer Erstling, spielt Darwin auf die Vielseitigkeit der Interessen seines Freundes an, der sich nur schwer zwischen drei "Bräuten", der Botanik, Chemie und Medizin, entscheiden konnte - ein Charakterzug, der in noch ausgeprägterem Maße auf Darwin selbst zutraf. Reimarus selbst war mehr ein Praktiker. Er hat als erster den Gedanken geäußert, dass ansteckende Krankheiten nicht durch Gifte, sondern durch lebendige Organismen (Bazillen) verbreitet würden, und er entdeckte die für Augenoperationen wichtige Wirkung des Atropin (Belladonna). Seine Dissertation über die Gelenkgeschwulste wurde von G. B. Morgagni in seinem unsterblichen Werk 'De sedibus et causis morborum' zum Teil ausgezogen und mit viel Lob beehrt und von Haller eines Nachdruckes für wert befunden. - Hirsch/Hüb.

        Carta de la Mar del Sur, o Mar Pacifico, entre el Equador, y 39 1/2 de latitud Septentrional hallada por el Almirante Jorge Anson en el Galeon de Philipinas, que apresó

      1757 - 23.5 x 22.7 cm. Mapa sumamente raro de la costa de California y parte del occidente de México que fue copiado de la carta de George Anson de 1748. En el ángulo superior derecho una cartela contiene el título y una leyenda que reza: "Viage de Anson. Lib 3. Cap.8. pag. 305. Mapa 33." En la esquina inferior derecha: "Joseph Gonzz. Sculpt. Mn." Arriba al centro la frase: "Parte de California". La costa californiana se extiende al norte desde Punta de los Reyes y las Islas Farallones, hasta el Cabo de San Lucas y la entrada al Golfo de California. Mientras que la costa occidental de México se extiende desde las Islas Marías hasta Acapulco y el Puerto del Marques. También están indicados Punta de Año nuevo, Punta de Pinas, Santa Catalina, Punta de la Concepción, Punta de S. Diego, entre otros. Apareció publicado en el volumen tercero de la obra de Miguel Venegas (1680-1764) titulada Noticia de la California, y de su conquista temporal, y espiritual hasta el tiempo presente. Sacada de la historia manuscrita, formada en México año de 1739 por el Padre Miguel Venegas, de la Compañía de Jesús; y de otras Noticias, y Relaciones antiguas, y modernas, y publicada en Madrid en 1757. Venegas fue un historiador jesuita nacido en la ciudad de Puebla que recibió la encomienda de redactar un informe sobre las misiones apostólicas de la Compañía de Jesús en California, y aunque nunca visitó este territorio, se sirvió de la correspondencia que mantuvo con los frailes evangelizadores y de los informes que éstos últimos elaboraron sobre sus misiones para completar esta relevante obra para la historia californiana, presentada en tres volúmenes. Aparentemente este mapa está basado en otro que fue publicado en una de las ediciones de la obra Viaje Alrededor del Mundo (1740-1744), del Almirante George Anson. Este libro constituye un apasionante relato del intento de una flota de la Marina Real Británica por circunnavegar el globo y de las penurias que sufrieron, pues de los casi dos mil hombres que zarparon murieron 1,400, principalmente de hambre y enfermedades. En el viaje de regreso a través de China, Anson logró capturar el Galeón de Manila Nuestra Señora de Covadonga, hazaña que le reportó fama y fortuna. Este excepcional mapa ilustra los puntos costeros más relevantes de la ruta comercial del Galeón de Manila. En 1521, una expedición española comandada por Fernando de Magallanes atravesó el océano Pacífico hacia el occidente y descubrió las islas Marianas y las Filipinas, mismas que fueron reclamadas por el imperio español. El Galeón de Manila era una flota de barcos mercantes que hacía viajes de ida y vuelta a través del océano Pacífico una o dos veces al año, desde el puerto de Acapulco en Nueva España (donde también se le conocía como "La Nao de China"), hasta Manila en las Indias Orientales, hoy Filipinas. Esta importante ruta comercial se estableció en 1565, luego de que el fraile agustino Andrés de Urdaneta descubriera el itinerario de tornaviaje desde las Filipinas a México; y se suspendió en 1825 cuando el proceso de Independencia mexicano terminó con el control español sobre los puertos de la antigua colonia americana. Los galeones de Manila navegaron el mar Pacífico por 250 años, llevando a España sus cargamentos de objetos de lujo, beneficios económicos e intercambios culturales. El principal motivo para la exploración de la California fue establecer posibles puntos costeros que sirvieran como estaciones para los galeones de Manila en el último tramo de su largo viaje de regreso desde las Indias Orientales.
