The original Spanish edition, El Orinoco ilustrado, was published in Madrid in 1741.Binders of the time in full calf marbled fawn, back smooth decorated with boxes and gilded florets and parts as caramel and red morocco, cold filet coaching boards, all marbled.A small working toward the tail of the second volume, some tiny friction on the flat of the first volume, leather joints of Volume cracked minor, otherwise fine copy of freshness.Gumilla Joseph (1686-1750) was a Spanish Jesuit priest, missionary to Colombia and Venezuela. He left Spain in 1705 to join the New Granada (now Colombia). From 1715 and for thirty-five years he lived in the plains of the Orinoco region now belonging to Venezuela. Gumilla take this journey to learn the languages ??of Indian tribes and develop knowledge in astronomy and natural history. On his return to Madrid, he wrote his Natural History after his comments.The book focuses on both the different Indian tribes present in the vicinity Orinoco (Othomacos, Guamoes, Saliva) to their physical appearance, their languages, their customs, rituals and beliefs. The spotlight is also made to wildlife (alligators, snakes, insects, fish, turtles ...).These anthropological and naturalistic observations are nevertheless marked the religious missionary seal; Weiss in the supplement of the ancient and modern universal Biography says in effect: "Having noticed among the Indians similar customs to those of the Hebrews, he concluded that the two peoples have a common origin, and that the Indians descendant of Ham, son Noah cursed, it is with justice that the Spaniards were reduced to slavery. [...] The story of the Orinoco, despite the flaws we have against him, is a very curious book and the reading is very enjoyable. "Nice copy.

        L'Architettura di M. Vitruvio Pollione colla Traduzione Italiana e Comento del Marchese Berardo Galiani...

      Naples: Stamperia Simoniana, 1758. Folio, with engraved frontispiece and 25 plates, woodcut diagrams and vignettes throughout; contemporary vellum. Splendid edition of Vitruvius, published in large format with 25 detailed plates specially prepared for this edition. This is the best textual edition of Vitruvius, translated and edited by Berardo Galiani, the humanist scholar who reinterpreted the classical architectural canon for eighteenth-century sensibilities. A second edition of this version appeared later the same year in Siena. The Latin text has a facing Italian translation, with the Italian commentary printed below.Vitruvius is the only classical architectural treatise to have survived into the modern era. All printed editions derive from four manuscript copies of which just three are now extant (the manuscript held by the Abbey of Montecassino was destroyed during the Second World War). Some textual differences exist between the known manuscripts; here Galiani's edition is remarkable for his careful collation and translation in order to provide the most accurate text possible. Furthermore, he was the first to produce a bibliography of previous printed editions of Vitruvius, with each entry accompanied by an informative commentary.Vitruvius, while eminently practical in many respects, was deeply concerned with the ritual and mystical magic associated with construction, building and the Roman home itself. The siting of structures was of great importance within the Roman metaphysical canon, additionally his work contains much detail on auguries associated with building, relationships between good fortune and architectural design, and similar themes. The magical and metaphysical aspects of the treatise held great influence on the Renaissance imagination, and the book came to be venerated far beyond its actual intellectual content. Light browning of a few gatherings, some plates thumbed at margins but a handsome copy.

        All the Works of Epictetus, Which Are Now Extant; Consisting of His Discourses, Preserved by Arrian, in Four Books, The Enchiridion, and Fragments

      London: S. Richardson, 1758. First English edition of the works of the second-century Stoic philosopher Epictetus, translated from the Greek by Elizabeth Carter. Born a slave, and crippled early in life, Epictetus gained his freedom in Rome and moved to the Adriatic coast, where he opened a school of philosophy. His Discourses were collected by his student Arrian, who also edited the handbook known as the Enchiridion, and collected the fragments translated here. Epictetus understood philosophy as an active pursuit, more difficult than the abstract exercise of logic: "we are eager and loquacious in the Schools; and, when any little Question arises . . . we are prepared to trace its Consequences: but drag us into Practice, and you will find us miserably shipwrecked." Properly practiced, philosophy is a continual intellectual triumph over personal desires and aversions, liberating us and giving purpose to our lives: "shame doth not consist in not having anything to eat, but in not having reason enough to exempt you from fear and sorrow. But, if you once acquire that exemption, will a tyrant, or his guards and courtiers, be anything to you?" Epictetus's emphasis on self-knowledge and self-discipline greatly impressed the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, who quotes him at length in the Meditations, and his philosophy was read across Renaissance Europe in Latin translation. English translator Elizabeth Carter was a scholar and poet: considered "the most learned lady in England," she appears in Richard Samuel's 1778 painting, Nine Living Muses of Great Britain, surrounded by fellow members of the Blue Stocking Circle. Original subscribers to Carter's Epictetus included Samuel Johnson and Elizabeth Montagu, and her translation remained the English standard for two hundred years. A near-fine copy of a classic of Greek and English literature, in a handsome contemporary binding. Large quarto: [a]-[b]4 [c]1 a-e4 f1 B-3T4 3U2. Full contemporary full marbled calf, raised bands, red morocco spine label lettered in gilt, all edges stained red. Preliminaries include an ode to Epictetus, twelve-page list of subscribers, Carter's introduction, and Arrian's letter; index and appendix at rear. Decorative headpieces, initials, and tailpieces throughout text. Occasional light pencil notes in margin, small ink splatter to 160-161, joints and corners expertly repaired.

      Offered is an interesting and rare letter written in Aug. of 1758 During the French and Indian War by John Bancker to his brother Evert.The letter is dated Aug the 24th, 1758, and the dateline is Great Carrying Place. " Dear Brother, I have reciaved both your letters, one of the 2 and the other of the 10 of this month. Reaciaved them the 23, with the express witch broth us the nuse of and taken caperture an we had a ryel sellute and we were very glad to hear it and we have no account of Boardstreat yet.

In hast S// John Bancker.The Oneida Carry was an important link in the main 18th century trade routebetween the Atlantic seaboard of North America and interior of the continent. From Schenectady , near Albany, New York on the Hudson River, cargo would be carried upstream along the Mohawk River, using boats known as bateaus. At the location at modern-day Rome, NY, the cargo and boats would be portaged one to four miles overland to Wood Creek. This portage was known as the Oneida Carry or asThe Great Carrying Place. After relaunching into Wood Creek, the bateauxwould navigate downstream to Oneida Lake, the Oswego River , and ultimately Lake Ontario at Oswego. Lake Ontario was the gateway to all the Great Lakes stretching another thousand miles inlandFort Stanwix was a colonial fort whose construction commenced on August 26, 1758, under the direction of British General Johm Stanwix, at the location of present-day Rome, New York, but was not completed until about 1762. The Star fort was built to guard a portage known as the Oneida Carrying Place during the French and Imdian War.Fort Bull was a fort located at the Oneida Carrying place during the French and Indian War.On October 29, 1755 Governor William Shirley ordered Captain Mark Petrie to take the men under his command and to build a fort on the upper landing of Wood Creek to protect the Oneida Carry . The fort was capable of holding a garrison of sixty to seventy men. The fort was attacked and burned to the ground by the French on March 27, 1756 in the Battle of Fort Bull.

      primo '800. André Massèna (1758-1817) si arruolò nel reggimento italiano al servizio della Francia, raggiungendo in breve tempo il grado di sergente. Malgrado le sue grandi qualità, le sue modeste origini si opposero al raggiungimento del grado di ufficiale nell'esercito regio, da cui si ritirò. Dopo lo scoppio della rivoluzione francese, ottenne il comando di un battaglione di volontari del Varo. Nel 1796-97 fu uno dei più attivi e fortunati luogotenenti di Bonaparte, distinguendosi soprattutto a Millesimo, Dego, al ponte di Lodi, a Rovereto ed a Rivoli. Quantunque l'esuberanza del temperamento lo mettesse spesso in contrasto con il Primo Console, questi divenuto Imperatore, lo inserì nella prima lista dei Marescialli di Francia.

        La Physique des Arbres; où il est traitè de l'Anatomie des Plantes et de l'Économie Végétale: pour servir d'Introduction au Traité complet des Bois & des Forests…

      50 folding engraved plates. 3 p.l., lxviii, 307 pp.; 2 p.l., iii, [1], 432 pp. Two vols. Large 4to, cont. mottled calf, spines nicely gilt, red & black morocco lettering pieces on spines. Paris: H.L. Guerin & L.F. Delatour, 1758. First edition. Duhamel (1700-82), French polymath, made notable contributions in agronomy, chemistry, botany, and naval technology. His major interest and contribution to technology and society was in agriculture. Duhamel "adapted Tull's system to France based on his own wide reading in French agronomy and on original experiments."-D.S.B., IV, p. 224. This is the second in Duhamel's series of books describing all aspects of trees and their cultivation. It is one of the most complete treatises on trees, the anatomy and structural properties of wood, and the management of tree stands of the 18th century. In his "Dissertation" (pp. xxix-lxv of Vol. I), Duhamel gives an interesting account of the then-current botanical systems including those of Morison, Ray, Tournefort, Magnol, and Linnaeus. The text of Vol. I is largely concerned with the anatomy of trees. Vol. II is devoted to the most up-to-date methods of tree propagation. Fine and handsome set. Blindstamp of "Ovesholm" on half-titles. This was the castle in southern Sweden built in 1792-1804 by Carl Adam Wrangel (1748-1829), who filled the building with a fine library, paintings, and sculpture. ❧ Pritzel 2468.

        Breve relazione della republica, che i religiosi Gesuiti delle provincie di Portogallo e di Spagna hanno stabilita ne'domini Oltromarini delle due monarchie e della guerra.

      Lisbona; Madrid 1758 - Part of a larger smear campaign levelled against the Jesuits in the latter part of the 18th century, this small book is a relation of the "Republic" the Jesuits established in the South American regions of Paraguay and Brazil. In actuality this "Republic" was a series of autonomously governed Jesuit missions (much like Juniperro Serra's missions in California) among the Guarani territory of South America in which each mission included a church, basic housing, a school, farms, and light industry. These highly successful ventures endured for over 150 years, and provided protection for the Guarani people from the ruthless slave-traders of the area, particularly the Portuguese. Pombal, who either wrote or sponsored this work, was the Portuguese Prime Minister and was vehemently anti-Jesuit. After the Jesuits were expelled from the territory, under pressure from both the Spanish and Portuguese Crowns, the European powers moved in to destroy these "Reductiones". The Guarani's led a brief armed resistance (the Guarani War, 1756), but ultimately were defeated and forced to flee back into the rainforest. This book appears to mention the war in the title, and is published only a year following it. This work was first published in Portuguese in 1757 in Lisbon. 8vo (17 x 11cm), 48p., 16p., 38p. Bound in wrappers with some wear and chips. [Variant of Sabin, 63895]

        Histoire naturelle, civile et géographique de l'Orénoque, et des principales rivières qui s'y jettent

      Chez Dessaint et Saillant|& chez Jean Mossy, 1758. - Chez Dessaint et Saillant & chez Jean Mossy, à Avignon à Marseille 1758, in-12 (9,5x16,5cm), xviij (8) 388pp. (4) et (2) 334pp. (4) et (2) 332pp. (4), 3 volumes reliés. - Prima edizione della traduzione francese da Marc-Antoine Eidous illustrato una mappa più grande "della Provincia e la missione della Compagnia di Gesù del Nuovo Regno di Granada" e due piastre di piegatura. L'edizione originale spagnola, El Orinoco ilustrado, è stato pubblicato a Madrid nel 1741. Leganti del tempo in piena fulvo vitello marmorizzato, torna liscia decorate con scatole e ornamenti dorati e parti come caramello e marocchino rosso, piatti freddi filetto di coaching, tutto in marmo. Un piccolo lavoro verso la coda del secondo volume, qualche piccolo attrito sul piano del primo volume, ganasce pelle di cracking Volume minore, copia altrimenti fini di freschezza. Gumilla Joseph (1686-1750) era un sacerdote gesuita spagnolo, missionario in Colombia e Venezuela. Ha lasciato la Spagna nel 1705 di aderire alla Nuova Granada (ora Colombia). Dal 1715 e il per trentacinque anni ha vissuto nella pianura della regione dell'Orinoco ora appartenente al Venezuela. Gumilla intraprendere questo viaggio per imparare le lingue delle tribù indiane e sviluppare le conoscenze di astronomia e storia naturale. Al suo ritorno a Madrid, ha scritto il suo Storia naturale dopo i suoi commenti. Il libro si concentra su entrambe le diverse tribù indiane presenti in prossimità Orinoco (Othomacos, Guamoes, saliva) per il loro aspetto fisico, le loro lingue, i loro costumi, riti e credenze. Il faretto è fatto anche per la fauna selvatica (alligatori, serpenti, insetti, pesci, tartarughe ...). Queste osservazioni antropologiche e naturalistiche sono comunque segnato il sigillo religiosa missionaria; Weiss nel supplemento della biografia antico e moderno universale dice in effetti: "Avendo notato tra gli indiani costumi simili a quelle degli ebrei, ha concluso che i due popoli hanno una comune origine, e che il discendente indiani di Cam, figlio Noah maledetto, è con la giustizia che gli spagnoli sono stati ridotti in schiavitù. [...] La storia del Orinoco, nonostante i difetti che abbiamo contro di lui, è un libro molto curioso e la lettura è molto piacevole. " Bella copia. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale de la traduction française par Marc-Antoine Eidous, illustrée d'une grande carte « de la Province et des Mission de la Compagnie de Jésus du nouveau royaume de Grenade » et de deux planches dépliantes. L'édition originale espagnole, El Orinoco ilustrado, est parue à Madrid en 1741. Reliures de l'époque en plein veau fauve marbré, dos lisses ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés ainsi que de pièces de titre de maroquin caramel et rouge, filet à froid en encadrement des plats, toutes tranches marbrées. Un petit travail de vers en queue du deuxième volume, quelques infimes frottements sur les plats du premier volume, cuir du mors du deuxième volume fendillé sans gravité, sinon bel exemplaire d'une grande fraîcheur. Joseph Gumilla (1686-1750) fut un prêtre jésuite espagnol, missionnaire en Colombie et Venezuela. Il quitta l'Espagne en 1705 pour rejoindre la Nouvelle Grenade (actuelle Colombie). A partir de 1715 et durant trente-cinq ans il résida dans les plaines de l'Orénoque, région appartenant aujourd'hui au Vénézuela. Gumilla profite de ce voyage pour apprendre les langues des tribus indiennes et développer des connaissances en astronomie et en histoire naturelle. A son retour à Madrid, il rédigea son Histoire naturelle d'après ses observations. L'ouvrage s'intéresse à la fois aux différentes tribus indiennes présentes aux abords l'Orénoque (Othomacos, Guamos, Saliva) à leur apparence physique, leurs langues, leurs coutumes, rituels et croyances. La part belle est également faite à la faune (caïmans, serpents, insectes, poissons, tortues...). Ces observations anthropologiques et naturalistes restent néanmoins marquées du sceau religieux du missionnaire ; Weiss dans le supplément de la Biographie universelle ancienne et moderne indique en effet : « Ayant remarqué parmi les Indiens des coutumes semblables à celles des Hébreux, il en conclut que les deux peuples ont une origine commune, et que les Indiens descendant de Cham, fils maudit de Noë, c'est avec justice que les Espagnols les ont réduits à l'esclavage. [...] L'histoire de l'Orénoque, malgré les défauts qu'on lui a reprochés, est un ouvrage fort curieux et dont la lecture est très-agréable. » Bel exemplaire.

        Les Ruines des les plus beaux monuments de la Grece.

      Paris, Guerin, 1758. - Mit 60 Kupfertafeln von Le Bas, Littret de Montigny, Deneufforge und Patte nach Le Roy. XIV, 56 Seiten, 1 Blatt, VI, 28 Seiten, Kalbsledereinband der Zeit mit floraler Rückenvergoldung, Einband leicht berieben, auf starkem Papier gedruckt, gut erhaltenes Prachtexemplar. Erste Ausgabe. Der Pariser Architekt und Architekturschriftsteller Le Roy (1724-1803) gilt als Wegbereiter des Klassizismus. Mit einem Stipendium der Französischen Akademie in Rom und unter Benutzung aller diplomatischen Kanäle konnte er 1755 die Hauptmonumente Athens in weniger als drei Monaten vermessen. Die nach seinen Vorlagen besonders schön gestochenen Tafeln zeigen malerische Ansichten der griechischen Ruinen in der Art Piranesis sowie Pläne, Grundrisse, Rekonstruktionen und architektonische Details. "Die Publikation von Le Roys „Ruines" (1758), die erstmals mit Bauaufnahmen griechischer Architektur vertraut machte, brachte für Piranesis heftiges Temperament das Faß gewissermaßen zum Überlaufen. Es entstand der „griechisch-römische Streit", . ein historisch-archäologischer Disput, der Piranesi veranlaßte, sich theoretisch zu äußern. Erst schrittweise werden die Konsequenzen für die Architekturauffassung der damaligen Zeit deutlich. Le Roy teilt seine Darstellung in einen historischen und einen architekturtheoretischen Teil. Ausgangspunkt bleibt für ihn Vitruv, zu dessen besserem Verständnis er beitragen will. (Der) historische Teil enthält malerische Ansichten der großen historischen Schauplätze von starker Dramatik. Le Roy relativiert die Regeln Vitruvs und stellt in Frage, ob man die griechischen Ordnungen sklavisch nachahmen solle" (Kruft, Geschichte der Architektur-Theorie 224 u. 235f.). "It was this work which introduced to Western Europe the architecture of classical Athens, remaining a major source of inspiration for the Greek style for many years" (Atabey Sale).

Ciascuno degli opuscoli reca sulla pagina iniziale, in alto a destra numerazione araba vergata a penna da mano presumibilmente settecentesca. Buona parte delle pubblicazioni è provvista di frontespizio con data di edizione, o reca i dati tipografici al fondo dell'ultima tavola. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo; modesta lacuna con restauro al frontespizio del quindicesimo opuscolo. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
