        Magnificent autograph letter signed, to François Véron Duverger de Forbonnais

      [Versailles:] , 1758. Three pages, quarto, with address panel and armorial seal. Preserved in a custom made cloth portfolio and drop back box. In excellent condition. One of two known letters of Quesnay's correspondence with Forbonnais, giving a valuable insight into Quesnay's working methods. The letter concerns two works, one by Quesnay, the other by Forbonnais. The first part of the letter deals with Forbonnais' Recherches et Considerations sur Ies Finances de la France, which was anonymously published in Basel in May 1758. Quesnay criticizes Forbonnais' use of statistics regarding currency and salaries by a long demonstration of the error he has made in his calculations ('I1 y a, comme vous le remarquez, l'erreur de fait et l'erreur de déduction relative à la taille et au produit des aides de 1683 comparés à leur état actuel'), and discusses how Forbonnais can correct this error in future editions of his work: 'Quant à votre carton, vous pourriez, après avoir rectifié le fait, faire la même observation qui affaibliroit du moins beaucoup l'erreur [de] déduction, ou la conséquence de l'erreur de fait qui est dans l'in 4°'. Forbonnais was later to incorporate this correction. Quesnay claims it is difficult to compare the earlier financial situation of France to the present situation as it is almost impossible to calculate the increase of the circulation of money at this earlier date, or indeed of the previous 200 years. He refers Forbonnais to his Questions intéressantes sur 1a population …, published as part four of Mirabeau's L'Ami des hommes. It is known that Quesnay frequently distributed his works in manuscript form before their publication, and Quesnay sent a manuscript draft of this work to Forbonnais, probably already corrected to some extent, asking him for assistance. He wishes to give concrete examples of the yield of certain agricultural products, wine in particular, and asks Forbonnais to assist him in various calculations. He also refers him to the footnotes to questions XVI in the sections on population (in which he refers to Pattullo's work), and on commerce, in which he maintains that it is difficult to establish monetary statistics. This letter is of great interest in showing that Quesnay and Forbonnais were on good terms during the 1750s and that the animosity which later developed between them had not always been so. It is also of great value, giving an insight into the working methods of both writers. Whilst there is a fair body of Quesnay's correspondence in institutions in France and America, manuscripts of Quesnay are excessively rare, and only two examples of his correspondence with Forbonnais are known.

        Von dem Nationalstolze.

      Zürich, Heidegger und Compagnie, 1758. - Gest. Frontispiz (A. Zingg nach J. L. Aberli), XXXIV, 312 S. (Titelblatt mit gest. Vignette von A. Zingg), dunkelbrauner Halbleder-Band der Zeit auf vier unechten Bünden mit goldgepr. ockerfarbenen Rückenschild und floraler Rückenvergoldung, dreiseitiger Rotschnitt (Rücken gebräunt, Goldprägung und Kanten stellenweise berieben), 14,4 x 9 cm. Erste Ausgabe. (Goedecke IV, 1,482,8; Ischer, J.G. Zimmermann's Leben und Werke, 1893). Eines von nur wenigen bekannten Exemplaren mit der 10-seitigen Widmung an den Berner Patrizier Beat Siegmund Ougspurger, da dieser unmittelbar nach der Veröffentlichung die Entfernung der Dedikation aus allen noch nicht verschenkten und zum Kauf bestimmten Exemplare veranlasst hatte. "Die Ausbesserung aller meiner Seelenkräfte ist, ., die angenehme Arbeit meines gegenwärtigen Lebens; die schönste Frucht davon entdeket (!) mir ein kühn gewagter Blick in die Zukunft - sie ist das Glück, der Gewogenheit eines Ougspurgers nicht unwürdig zu heissen, wann ich bin, was zu werden mich bestrebe." Sowohl dieser allzu schmeichlerische Klang der Widmung, als auch der ironische Ton der Satire über den Nationaldünkel im ersten Teil der Arbeit, waren dem Berner offensichtlich nicht geheuer. Obwohl der zweite Teil ja schließlich vom berechtigten Nationalstolz, der sich auf die wahren Vorzüge gründet, handelt. Der gerechte, vernünftige Nationalstolz, so Zimmermann, ist die Liebe zum Vaterland. - Titelblatt mit etwas späterem handschriftl. Besitzvermerk 'Edna Döring', einem priv. Besitzstempel und 2 Wappen-Prägestempeln, sonst innen schönes, nahezu fleckenfreies und ungebräuntes Exemplar. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Schweizer Gebirgslandschaft mit Blick zum Rosenlaui-Gletscher mit Klein- und Groß- Wellhorn, links der Dossen, rechts das Wetterhorn.

      . Gouache, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet und mit grünlich gouachiertem Rand, auf dünnem Karton, verso bezeichnet "Glacier du Rosenlaui vue en passant le Scheidegg. Chez J. Louis Bleuler au chateau de Laufen pres Schaffhouse Suisse". Darstellungsgröße 33:48 cm, Blattgröße 43,7:57,5 cm. Im gouachierten Rand rechts und unten leicht berieben, sonst tadellos.. Johann Ludwig Bleuler wurde als Sohn des bekannten Schweizer Landschaftsmalers Johann Heinrich Bleuler (1758-1823) geboren und von diesem in dessen Kunstverlag als Maler und Zeichner ausgebildet. 1819 unternahm er Studienreisen nach Brüssel und Amsterdam, anschließend nach Paris. Nach seiner Rückkehr übernahm er zunächst zusammen mit seinem Bruder Johann Heinrich das väterliche Geschäft in Feuerthalen. Ab 1820 veröffentlichte er Ansichten des gesamten Rheinlaufs, die sein Hauptmotiv werden sollten. Vier Jahre später gründete er in Schaffhausen seinen eigenen Verlag. Um 1845 erschien sein Hauptwerk "Voyage pittoresque aux bords du Rhin et de la Suisse". 1833 hatte er wegen des stetig wachsenden Erfolges seines Verlages seinen Wohnsitz und die Werkstatt in das Schloß Laufen am Rheinfall verlegt. Eine Reise an den Zarenhof in St. Petersburg 1837-1838 war der unternehmerische Höhepunkt. Danach war er zunehmend weniger erfolgreich und die Umwälzungen jener Jahre trieben Bleuler an den Rand des Ruins. Dazu trugen auch neue Reproduktionstechniken in nicht unerheblichem Maße bei.

      Newcastle upon Tyne: I. Thompson, 1758. First edition. 9 woodcuts in text. pp. [16], 322, [30] bills of fare. 1 vols. 8vo. Full red morocco. John Thacker, "cook to the Honourable and Reverend the Dean and Chapter in Durham," excuses himself for writing another cookery book on the grounds that those already available were "far short of being generally useful, especially in these Northern parts, where the seasons occasion such alterations in the Bills of Fare for each month, from those calculated for the Southern parts; some being fill'd with receipts quite foreign to the purpose, as for beautifying washes, &c. others stuff'd with ragoos, and other dishes à-la-mode de France as they call them; in which the mixture of spices is so great, and the expence so extravagant, that it frightens most people from using them." (Preface). Thacker opened a cookery school in Durham in 1742.

(many of which may be executed with roots of trees) for gardens, parks, forests, ... From the designs of Charles Over, architect. [8] pp. Illustrated with 54 full-page engraved plates. 8vo., 210 x 130 mm, bound in contemporary English calf gilt, sprinkled edges. London: Robert Sayer, 1758. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of Charles Over's Ornamental Architecture, an influential book of English garden ornament that in many ways anticipated Sir William Chambers. In this work Over introduces elements like the parasol and dragon motifs. The 54 plates provide a detailed view of his vision of "modern" English gardens, fashionably rendered in the Oriental and Gothic styles. Eileen Harris writes: "The majority of Over's designs for garden ornaments may be variations upon Halfpenny's works, but there may be a few novelties that merit attention. His 'Umbrella seat in the Indian manner' is, according to Eleanor von Erdberg, the first use of the umbrella as a functional structure." "Ornamental Architecture had considerable influence upon William Wrighte's Grotesque Architecture (1767) and to some degree contributed to the popularity of the Chinese grotto in Europe in the second half of the eighteenth century. Whether any of Over's designs were ever executed is unknown. They are his only known work" (Harris). Spine rubbed, label defective. A very good copy of a rare English work on garden ornament, with fine impressions of all the plates. ESTC T132234. Berlin Katalog 3417. Harris 606.

        L’Ipocondria. Composizione Anacreontica

      Florence: Pietro Gaetano Viviani, 1758 With engraved title vignette and 3 leaves of plates featuring 5 subjects, all signed Giuseppe Bonaiuti. Contemporary gilt-paneled vellum with double fillets and embellishments, lacking ties and with renewed end papers; a few small worm holes affecting the margins of the initial leaves, scattered foxing and small stains, with a larger stain on leaf E4 and the final plate. With two small notes in Italian on the verso of the front free end paper. First edition, extremely rare, of this allegorical poem on hypochondria. Although the identity of the Italian poet who penned this work remains unknown, his chosen pseudonym, which translates to something like ?"Bleary Enthusiasm of the Dark Valley?" is nonetheless amusing. The story follows the narrator and protagonist, Fabrizio, through the Kingdom of Hypochondria where he meets its queen and her entourage of gruesome characters, a scene brought to life in one of the five wonderful plates included in this work. After the main poem, the author supplies his own commentary, complete with an explanation of the rather puzzling title vignette.

        Apologie de Louis XIV et de son conseil, sur la révocation de l'Edit de Nantes. Pour servir de réponse à la Lettre d'un patriote sur la tolérance civile des protestans de France. Avec une Dissertation sur la journée de la S. Barthelemi

      First Edition. Copy riddled with a frontispiece. Full mottled calf time. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco. Head cap weakened. 3 corners bumped. Pretty good copy. The book was originally written in response to a book by Antoine Court (1695-1760), Letter from a patriot of civil tolerance of Protestants of France and the advantages résulteroient for the kingdom (1756); this is why it is written in the vocative. The author justified by historical and economic study seriously the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. "The author does a great display of" scholarship and science in the field of "political economy. Dissertation offers curious researches" (Michaud). This defense of intolerance provides very interesting remarks on demographics. Finally, the author provides economical solutions to overcome this demographic threat. Disssertation on the day of St. Bartholomew denies that it was a religious matter, and even deaths, and seeks to mitigate the historical significance. The book aroused ample indignation, including Voltaire. S.n. S.l. 1758 In 8 (12x20cm) (2) vj (4) 565pp. (1) lxiij (3) relié

        Tracts in Divinity;

      Oxford - W. Jackson, 1758 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The first two volumes of the collected works of William Hawkins, writer and Church of England clergyman. Early in life, Hawkins (17221801)contributed pieces to magazines, and in 1743, when he was only twenty-one, he published his first work, The Thimble, an heroi-comical Poem in four cantos, by a Gentleman of Oxford, which may be found here in the second volume. His next venture was in play-writing, and it remained his passion for nearly twenty-five years. Henry and Rosamond, a Tragedy, was published in 1749, and may also be found in the second volume. In 1758 he collected and published, in three volumes, his separate publications. The first volume consisted of tracts on divinity; the second of dramatic and other poems, including the Thimble, Henry and Rosamond, and the Siege of Aleppo'.

        View of the Temple of Minerva, Athens. "Vue de Temple de Minerva à Athenes

      Greece: Paris chez H.L. Guerin & L.F. Delatour, J.L. Nyon/ Jean Neaulme 1758. Copper engraved view of the gate of the Parthenon, Athens from Le Roy's "Les Ruines des Plus Beaux Monuments de la Grece ." Black and white, verso blank. The view shows the ruined Parthenon with a small mosque erected by the Turks within. Bright dark impression; small ink spots to blank margins. Julien David Le Roy (1724-1803) was a French architect and archaeologist. "Les Ruines des Plus Beaux Monuments de la Grece," issued in 1758, first revealed to European eyes the wonders of Greek classical architecture. Overnight, Greece became the rage, much to the chagrin of Giovanni Battista Piranesi and other defenders of the genius of Rome. Le Roy was to become engaged in a strong rivalry with Society of Dillitanti members James Stuart and Nicholas Revett, particularly to produce the first professional description of the Acropolis since that of by Antoine Desgodetz published in 1682. A winner of the Prix de Rome in 1750, Julien-David Le Roy was a historian and pensionnaire at the French Academy in Rome, where he had the opportunity to study its architecture firsthand. It was there that he learned of Stuart and Revett's proposed book and their trip to Greece in 1751-1753. Receiving permission from the Ottoman Turks in Constantinople, he himself hurried to Athens early in 1755, where for three hectic months he surveyed and drew the principal classical monuments there, including those on the Acropolis. Stuart and Revett had been researching Athens since 1748 but Le Roy had an advantage in accessing the ruins due to good relations between France and the Ottoman Empire. Le Roy's studies,were supported by the Comte de Caylus and his art circle. The finest engravers and architects were recruited to produce the illustrations' Published in advance of Stuart's and Revett's "Antiquities of Athens", which appeared in 1762, Le Roy's work introduced the architecture of classical Athens to Western Europe. Le Roy's work provoked strident criticism from Stuart' in the preface to "Antiquities of Athens", Stuart declared that he, at least, was determined "to avoid Haste, and System, those most dangerous enemies to accuracy and fidelity, for we had frequently, with great regret, observed their bad effects in many, otherwise excellent, Works of this kind." Railing against Le Roy, every misunderstanding and inaccuracy were itemized. There were insinuations of plagiarism and charges that descriptions had been taken from others and not made directly, as well as failures to recognize monuments for what they were (e.g., the gateway to the Roman Agora and Hadrian's Library). On his own admission Le Roy was less concerned with precise measuring and recording than he was with conveying the soul of the antiquities, showing them the context of their surroundings With the publication of "Les Ruines", Le Roy was elected a member of the Royal Academy of Architects. Stuart's criticisms were sufficiently pointed that Le Roy felt obliged to publish a response ("Observations sur les édifices des anciens peuples") and, in 1770, a second edition of his work?"this time with footnotes, quotations in Greek and Latin, and references. There also was a riposte to Stuart, who, he felt, saw the only merit of publishing a book on Greek monuments as providing their exact measurements?"and doing so too often. "The ruins of antiquity may be looked at in widely differing ways. In publishing them, one may undertake no more than a slavish record of their dimensions; and the most scrupulous accuracy in doing so is, in Mr. Stuart's opinion, almost the only merit that a book of this kind can possess. My journey, I confess, was undertaken with very different ends in view; I would never have traveled to Greece simply to observe the relations of the buildings and their parts with the subdivisions of our foot. Such a claim to fame I gladly resign to anyone who desires it and aspires to nothing higher....As for the vast quantity of plates with which works of the present kind are sometimes laden, these often convey nothing to the public beyond the industry or the want of taste of those who have measured the monuments" (Preface, Vol. I). In the much-expanded edition of 1770,Le Roy wrote two highly provocative theoretical essays. In one,he set forth a compelling linear history of the conceptual forms of architecture that began in Egypt, moved to Greece, then Rome, and finally modern Europe. In the other, seeking to express the experience of architectural form and its effects, Le Roy gave new voice to feeling. Blackmer/ Navari :1009; Atabey 709 ;Cohen de-Ricci 627.

        L?Ipocondria. Composizione Anacreontica

      Pietro Gaetano Viviani 1758 With engraved title vignette and 3 leaves of plates featuring 5 subjects, all signed Giuseppe Bonaiuti. Contemporary gilt - paneled vellum with double fillets and embellishments, lacking ties and with renewed end papers; a few small worm holes affecting the margins of the initial leaves, scattered foxing and small stains, with a larger stain on leaf E4 and the final plate. With two small notes in Italian on the verso of the front free end paper. First edition, extremely rare, of this allegorical poem on hypochondria. Although the identity of the Italian poet who penned this work remains unknown, his chosen pseudonym, which translates to something like ?Bleary Enthusiasm of the Dark Valley? is nonetheless amusing. The story follows the narrator and protagonist, Fabrizio, through the Kingdom of Hypochondria where he meets its queen and her entourage of gruesome characters, a scene brought to life in one of the five wonderful plates included in this work. After the main poem, the author supplies his own commentary, complete with an explanation of the rather puzzling title vignette.

        View of the Trimphal Monument raised to honour Caius, Julius, Antiochus Philopappus at Athens. "Vue d'un Monument triumphal élevé en l'honeur de Caius, julius, Antiochus, Philopappus à Athenes

      Greece: Paris chez H.L. Guerin & L.F. Delatour, J.L. Nyon/ Jean Neaulme 1758. Copper engraved view of the Monument of Philopappus, Athens from Le Roy's "Les Ruines des Plus Beaux Monuments de la Grece ." Black and white, verso blank. The view shows the ruined Monument of Philopaapus with varius figures sitting around it and the sea in the background. The Philopappos Monument is an ancient Greek mausoleum and monument dedicated to Gaius Julius Antiochus Epiphanes Philopappos or Philopappus, ( 65?"116 AD), a prince from the Kingdom of Commagene. It is located on Mouseion Hill in Athens, Greece, southwest of the Acropolis. Philopappos died in 116, and his death caused great grief to his sister Julia Balbilla, citizens of Athens and possibly to the imperial family. As a dedication to honor the memory of Philopappos, Balbilla with the citizens of Athens erected a tomb structure on Mouseion Hill near the Acropolis of Athens. His marble tomb monument is still known as the Philopappos Monument, and the hill is today known as Philopappos Hill The Greek geographer Pausanias (Description of Greece, I.25.8), describes Philopappos' grand tomb as a monument built for a Syrian man. The monument was built on the same site where Musaios or Musaeus, a 6th-century BC priestly poet and mystical seer, was held to have been buried. The location of this tomb, opposite the Acropolis and within formal boundaries of the city, shows the high position Philopappos had within Athenian society. Bright dark impression; small minor spots to blank margins. Julien David Le Roy (1724-1803) was a French architect and archaeologist.

Bis ca. 1560 in zahlreichen politischen Ämtern tätig. "Als Gelehrter ohne Universitätsstudium blieb Tschudi zeitlebens Autodidakt. [..] Von Tschudis Werken wurde zu Lebzeiten nur die landeskundlich-historische 'Alpisch Rhetia' gedruckt [Basel 1538] [..]. [..] Daneben war Tschudi der wichtigste Beiträger zur 1547-48 publizierten Schweizerchronik von Johannes Stumpf. Seine eigene Schweizerchronik blieb unvollendet [..]; sie wurde erst 1734-36 unter dem Titel 'Chronicon Helveticum' von Johann Rudolf Iselin publiziert, der zugehörige, topografisch aufgebaute Teil zum Zeitabschnitt vor 1000 erst 1758 unter dem Titel 'Gallia Comata'." (Chr. Sieber, in: HLS). - "Während das 'Chronicon Helveticum' annalistisch angelegt ist [..], bietet die zwischen 1564 und 1572 entstandene 'Gallia comata', das zweite Hauptwerk Tschudis, die Vorgeschichte der Eidgenossenschaft in vorrömischer, römischer und frühmittelalterlicher Zeit als historisch-topographische Sammlung. Für den schweizerischen Raum zog der Verfasser fast sämtliche Textstellen aus antiken und frühmittelalterlichen Autoren heran, zitierte römische Inschriften und mittelalterliche Urkunden. Die Helvetier, dies ist der Grundgedanke, pflegten uralte Rechte und Freiheiten, die, von den eroberungssüchtigen Römern teilweise ausgelöscht, von den Innerschweizern im Befreiungsgeschehen weitgehend wiederhergestellt worden sind. Den topographischen Begriff 'Gallia comata' erklärt Tschudi von der Haartracht der Bevölkerung her [.. ] ('Gallia comata' S. 7)." (P. Ochsenbein u. K. Schmucki, Bibliophiles Sammeln und Historisches Forschen. Der Schweizer Polyhistor Aegidius Tschudi 1505-1572. St. Gallen 1991, p. 34). - "Später, in seinen letzten Lebensjahren, schrieb [Tschudi] die 'Gallia comata', ein topographisches Werk, welches auch Helvetien und Rätien umfassen sollte. Es enthält sechs Abschnitte: Helvetien, Rätien, die Rauraker, Sequaner, Germanien und Vindelikien. Aber der Verfasser wollte es nicht als vollendet anerkennen. Erst zweihundert Jahre später wurde es [..] veröffentlicht [..]. Die Gallia comata ist für die Kenntniss dieser Periode von untergeordnetem Werth. Sprachlich und in antiquarischer Beziehung lässt sie viel vermissen [..]. Dagegen finden sich darin wichtige Angaben über mittelalterliche und historiographische Dinge, z.B. über schweizerische Bischöfe, die noch heute brauchbar sind. [..] [Die] sogenannte Gallia Comata [.. wurde] nach dem Originalmanuscript, aber mit Einschiebseln aus anderen Tschudi'schen Manuscripten und in modernisirter Sprache, veröffentlicht." (G. v. Wyss, Geschichte der Historiographie in der Schweiz, 1895, p. 12 u.199). - "Tschudi brachte der nationalen Vergangenheit ein ungeheures Verlangen und Annäherungsvermögen entgegen. [..] Er gibt Quellen in der Gallia comata an [..]. [..] Als Sammler und Forscher ist er bahnbrechend, er hat den gewaltigsten Unterbau für die Schweizergeschichte geschaffen, ohne über Hilfswerke zu verfügen. Manche, die ihn nachmals kritisierten, lebten doch von seinem Fleiss. [..] Die Gallia comata ist überhaupt bloss eine Materialsammlung, die er rasch chronologisch geordnet hat. [..] Tschudi hat die Geschichtsschreibung der Schweiz auf den Weg der quellenmässigen Forschung gewiesen; das ist eine der wichtigsten, für die Wissenschaft folgenreichsten Seiten seiner Gelehrtentätigkeit." (Feller/Bonjour 1, 2. Aufl. 1979, p. 265, 268, 270 u. 273; pp. 273-276 mit Diskussion der Rezeption und wertvollen bibliographischen Hinweisen).

        The Case of the Dutch Ships, Considered

      London: for R. and J. Dodsley; and Sold by M. Cooper,, 1758. Octavo (202 × 132 mm). Recent sprinkled half calf on marbled boards, red morocco label to spine. Lightly browned, else very good. First edition. Published when Marriott had recently graduated in Law and entered the College of Advocates, and at the height of the Seven Years' War, this pamphlet contends that "... that the Dutch had forfeited claims to neutrality by trading with French colonies and by allowing Dutch territory to be used by France" (James Ford Bell Catalogue, M178). Marriott's arguments attracted a good deal of notice, and two further editions were called for within a year; a fourth edition was published in 1778. Marriott "was an indefatigable, insatiable, and indiscriminate suitor for patronage" (ODNB), rising eventually to become a Judge in Admiralty. Despite Roscoe's harsh judgement that he did "not leave a single judgement of historical value" (Studies in the History of the Admiralty and Prize Courts), his compilation of the forms and practice of the Admiralty Court, Formulare Instrumentarum published in 1802, was to be a major influence on American admiralty law.
