        Veduta del Tempio della Fortuna Virile

      Rome 1758 - Hind 46 First State.John Wilton-Ely 162From the important series \"Veduta de Roma\"\"Temple of Virile Fortune is now thought to be the Temple of Portunus\" (John Wilton-Ely)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and \"like Callot makes great use of the swelling line\" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi\'s own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etchings. San Fran

        Mémoires politiques, concernant la guerre ; pour servir d'éclaircissement à l'histoire de notre tems. Par Mr D.V.

      Francfort, Leipzig, aus dépens de la Compagnie, 1758, - 2 parties en un vol. in-8, [26]-414 pp. en numérotation continue, vélin blanc rigide, pièce de titre, tranches bleues (reliure de l'époque). Bon exemplaire.L'ouvrage possède deux pages de titre et la seconde précise le dessein de l'auteur : ". ou Principes de la loi naturelle appliqués à la conduite et aux affaires des nations et des souverains". Quoique cet opuscule fasse partie de la grande série des Mémoires de l'Observateur hollandois, il faut l'attribuer spécialement à Emmerich de Vattel, dont d'ailleurs il porte les seules initiales. On peut le considérer comme la première ébauche de son grand traité du Droit des gens, qui parut cette même année 1758 ; c'est que la Guerre de Sept ans, qui, rappelons-le, fut longue, violente et inaugura des relations nouvelles entre puissances, suscita une forte réflexion philosophique sur la légitimité et les lois des conflits entre nations civilisées.

        Atlas Universel

      chez les auteurs & Boudet, Paris 1758 - Bound to style in 19th-century calf, the covers elaborately panelled in blind, the large central panel with a diamond-shaped lattice in blind, spine in eight compartments, titled in blind in the second, the others with repeat decoration in blind, marbled endpapers A fine copy of the Robert de Vaugondy's great atlas Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy were descendents of Nicolas Sanson, and their atlas is clearly a continuation of Sanson's great work, Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties de Monde published in 1654 and later enhanced and enlarged by Hubert Jaillot. Of the 108 maps, 12 are of the ancient world and 96 reflect modern geography. The Robert de Vaugondys, following Sanson's example, include maps of the postal routes, roads and canal systems of the European countries but herein they are significantly more accurate. Special attention has been paid to the Far East and to North America where the French explorers made such important strides during the eighteenth century. The maps of the East Indies, China, Japan; the maps of Africa and Egypt; and the maps of North America, Canada, Virginia & Maryland, Colonies Angloises are especially interesting in this atlas because they include information gathered from the latest explorations of the area. In particular, California and Australia are represented in truer form. The finish date of 1758 is given on the basis of the date on the map numbered 24 'Carte du royaume de France'. Nordenskjold 245; NMM 266; Phillips Atlases I.619; Sabin 71863. (20 3/4 x 16 1/2 inches). Letterpress 'avertissement' leaf, 33pp. text, 1p.

      8 p.l., 384, [36] pp. Thickish 8vo, cont. Croatian (?) binding of calf over boards (three corners & head of spine a little worn, occasional minor foxing), covers ruled in blind. Zagreb: A. Reiner, 1758. First edition of the first Croatian book on arithmetic. This is an extremely rare book with no copy in OCLC. In 2008 a reprint with a new introduction was issued on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the publication of this work. At the same time, a Croatian postage stamp was issued to commemorate the anniversary. "Public education in Croatian regions under the rule of the Habsburg Monarchy had not yet been organized even in the first half of the 18th century... "The growing needs in trade and economy forced the teachers of that time to pay more attention to doing sums and calculations. At that time, however, the only handbooks for mathematical operations existed only in foreign languages while it was necessary to teach the population in the Croatian language. This is why Mijo Šilobod Bolšic wrote his first arithmetic in the Croatian language, more specifically in the Kaikavian dialect, published in the year 1758 in Zagreb, entitled "Arithmetika Horvatszka"... "Mijo Šilobod Bolšic was born in the year 1725 in the village Sveti Martin pod Okicem. He attended the gymnasium in Zagreb, studied philosophy in Vienna and continued his studies of theology in Bologna. He served as parish priest in various parishes in the Kaikavian regions of Croatia. Šilobod wrote several works of different contents in the Croatian and Latin languages but had become best known for his very extensive book on arithmetic... "In writing his arithmetic handbook Šilobod used some foreign arithmetic books, among them the well known handbook of arithmetic written by the Italian author Giuseppe Maria Figatelli. Šilobod's handbook is divided into four parts: the first part contains the four mathematical operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; the second part describes all operations with fractions, the third part contains the simple and complex rule of three, and the fourth part contains practical trading accounts, debts, profits, losses, mix calculus and many others. In this fourth chapter there are also some more complex explanations, probably intended for pupils who have already sufficiently mastered the first three parts of the book. At the end of the book, on thirty-six un-paginated pages, we find displayed various practical tables. This entirely defines the task and purpose of this work, i.e. the knowledge of the basic accounts and all the accounts that appear in practical life, particularly in trade... "Since the handbook was written in the Croatian language, this is where the Croatian arithmetical terminology appears for the first time. Šilobod had obviously used terms that were already recorded in dictionaries; however, this was entirely insufficient because his needs were much greater. On the other hand, the more complex mathematical terms could not be easily found in dictionaries and they were not used by the wide population. "This is the reason that Šilobod found out he was facing a huge problem: it would be the first time to record the existing mathematical terminology in a published book, naturally, in the Kaikavian region for which he had written his handbook. He would then have had to adapt the terminology that had already been present in dictionaries, particularly in the dictionary of J. Belloszténëcz. Afterwards he himself would have had to coin the terms he needed, using the already existing roots of specific words of related meaning in the Kaikavian dialect of the Croatian language. He had obviously coined some names by translating Latin terms that he then adjusted to the Kaikavian expression... "Šilobod's arithmetic has great significance in the Croatian culture, particularly because this is the first arithmetic in the Croatian language: it was the first appearance of the systematically used Croatian mathematical terminology. Besides, the handbook had an important role in the education of the Croatian people at the time when great need occurred for the enhancement of the knowledge of accounting in trade and economy."-Žarko Dadic, A very good copy of a very unusual imprint. .

        Le droit des gens ou principes de la loi naturelle appliques a la conduite et aux affaires des nations & des souverains. A Leide: aux depens de la Compagnie, 1758.

      - Early edition of the classic text on international law, published in the same year as the first 'London' [i.e. Neuchatel] edition, and nine years before Vattel's death in 1767. This work was much read in the American colonies, and greatly influenced the thinking of the framers of the American constitution. 'No writer on the law of nations before Vattel had so consistently - and persistently - emphasized freedom, independence, and interdependence as the condition of states in their relations with one another. The authors of the American Declaration would soon adopt his repeated insistence that states were "free and independent" as the conception of their own states' condition. By doing so, they enacted Vattel's central contention that - in the words of his contemporary English translator - "independence is ever necessary to each state"; to secure that independence "it is sufficient that nations conform to what is required of them by the natural and general society, established among all mankind." In due course, this would become the standard modern definition in international law of independence as "the capacity to enter into relations with other states." In 1775 Benjamin Franklin sought out the latest edition of Vattel's work for the benefit of Congress" (David Armitage, The Declaration of Independence: A Global History, Harvard, 2007, pp. 40-41). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 4to, two volumes in one, [xxxvi], 228, [xvi], 162 pp., contemporary half calf, rubbed, rebacked with original label, outer leaves a little dusty, occasional spotting, a very good copy.

        Civan, Roi de Bungo, Histoire Japonnaise , ou Tableau de l'Education d'un Prince

      Londres: Jean Nourse, 1758. Two volumes, small octavo; a neat set in contemporary calf, flat spines gilt in compartments, slight rubbing. Educational use of an imaginary voyage setting. Second edition, following a 1754 version by the same publisher. Both works are of some rarity, NUC listing a single copy of the first and only two copies of this edition. The book is a roman d'éducation about an imagined kingdom of famed serenity and good government, written for Joseph II. Madame le Prince de Beaumont (1711-1780) was a prolific writer whose work was principally known for a 'cachet religieux, moral et sensé' (NBG). Civan is dedicated to Prince Joseph (later Joseph II, first emperor of the House of Hapsburg-Lorraine) best known for an ill-fated series of reforms which attempted to improve the conditions of the peasantry. As the introduction explains, the tale of the Roi de Bungo was intended to offer the young Princes 'un Modèle digne de leur émulation'. Moreover, Beaumont saw in the example of Civan what she contended would provide 'ces Guides qu'il eut besoin de chercher chez des Estrangers'. The work's rarity is confirmed by the entry in the NBG: clearly not having the work to hand, they refer to it as 'Cida, Roi de Burgo'. It has recently been released in a scholarly reprint, edited by Alix Deguise.

Choix De Conquillages Et De Crustacés Peints D'Après Nature Gravés En taille Douce Et Illuminés De Leurs Vraïes Couleurs Par Francois Michel Regenfuss Graveur du Roi. Publié par ordre Du Roi. (Vol. I, all published).

      Kopenhagen/ A Copenhague, (Colophon: Andreas Hartwig Godiche), 1758. Imperial folio. (62,5 x 47 cm.). Contemporary full mottled calf with 9 raised bands on spine. Profusely gilt compartments depicting differents species of shells. A few tears at spine-ends and on top of hinges. Corners a bit bumped with light wear. In the middle of both covers the Royal crowned coat of arms of Frederik V, King of Denmark, showing the weapons of Denmark, Norway and the Calmar Union (Fredrik V's Cabinet weapon/ Kabinetsvåben). Internally fine and clean, printed on thick paper. Collation: F 1 Half-title in German and French (on verso Nachricht an der Buchbinder) followed by the engraved plate of Frederic V surrounded by allegorical representations of navigation and marine products. This plate is printed in sanguine, an indication of the copy being one of the ROYAL PRESENTATION COPIES (in other copies it is printed in blue). F 2 German title-page. F 3 French Title-page. F 4-5 Dedication to the King in German. F 6-7 Dedication in French. F 8 Vorbericht/ Advertissement by Regenfuss dated 31st March 1758 (the King's birthday). Pp.

Vorläufige Einleitung/ Discours préliminaire. Pp. I-LXXXVII Erklärung der Kupfertafeln/ Explication des Planches. On verso of p. LXXXVII "Emendanda". A German imperial privilege-leaf is not supposed to be in the the Royal presentation copies, and is consequently not here. According to C.C.A. Gosch (part 3, p. 152) a leaf with the imprint "Lectori benevolo Naturae Speculatori Atque Ingenuarum Artium Studioso S.P." is found in some copies where the engraved dedication leaf to the king lacks (the engraved dedikation is present here). The 2 large engraved vignettes is also printed in sanguine, indicating royal presentation copy. With all the 12 exquisite handcoloured engraved plates each with many figures, often showing the shells in front and back view. Each shell is provided with a shadow on its right side, the flat species with a narrow edge of shadow, the more convex ones with a considerable amount of shadow, making the figures stand out THREE-DIMENSIONALLY.. Extremely scarce - really the second issue of this, the tallest and most sumptuous of all conchological works, as the work was prepared for publication early in 1758 with the text by the Danish phycisist C.G. Kratzenstein. Just as the book was due to come from the press, the King supressed the text, and took the few copies back wich had already been distributed (probably only 25 and only very few of these have survived in public libraries). The text for the definite edition (the item offered) was rewritten by L. Spengler, J.A. Cramer and P. Ascanius, using Kratzensteins new generic names and after being approved by the King it was published in 1759. The magnificent plates are all handcoloured by Gabr. Müller and Joh. Maurits Leyh, but mostly by Regenfuss' wife Margaretha Helena Regenfuss.The second volume was prepared, but Regenfuss did not finish the 12 plates until 1777. These plates were brought in circulation in advance of the relevant text and the plates are found in various libraries, all without a text, which was prepared by O.F. Müller, but never printed.For the very complicated printing history of the works see: C.C.A. Gosch "Udsigt over Danmarks Zoologiske Litteratur", vol. 2, part I, pp. 292 ff. and vol. 3, pp. 151-153. - Birkelund "Dansk Boghaandværk gennem Tiderne 1482-1948", pp. 77-81. - W.S.S.van Benthem Jutting "On the Conchological work of F.M.

        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; light browning of a few gatherings, some plates thumbed at margins, but a handsome copy in contemporary vellum. Large format Vitruvius. 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.

        The book of nature; or, the history of insects

      London: Seyffert, 1758. <p>Swammerdam, Jan (1637-80). The book of nature; or, the history of insects. . . . With the life of the author, by Herman Boerhaave. Translated from the Dutch and Latin original edition, by Thomas Flloyd. Revised and improved by notes from Reaumur and others by John Hill, M.D. 2 parts in 1, folio. [6], xx, [6], 236; 153, lxiii, [12]pp. 53 engraved plates, a few by Swammerdam. London: C. G. Seyffert, 1758. 440 x 274 mm. (uncut). Quarter calf, marbled boards in period style. Edges a bit frayed, light toning, but very good.</p><p>First Edition in English. See Dibner 191. Despite a scientific career that lasted only a dozen years, Swammerdam was one of the outstanding comparative anatomists of the seventeenth century. His most remarkable work was in the field of insect anatomy, which he undertook in order to disprove Aristotle&#146;s claims that insects lack internal anatomy, develop by metamorphosis (sudden and complete transformation) and arise from spontaneous generation. By refining his techniques of microdissection and injection to the point where he could use them on the smallest and most delicate anatomical parts, Swammerdam was able to illustrate for the first time the complex internal structures of insects, including their reproductive organs; and to demonstrate the gradual development of an insect&#146;s adult form throughout all its larval stages. These observations are &#147;indubitably the foundation of our modern knowledge of the structure, metamorphosis and classification of insects&#148; (Cole, p. 285). In addition, Swammerdam performed valuable investigations of crustaceans, mollusks and frogs, and was the first to prove experimentally that muscles do not increase in bulk when contracted via nerve stimulation. The Biblia natura, Swammerdam&#146;s major work, was published fifty-seven years after his death by Herman Boerhaave (1668-1738), who assembled it from unpublished manuscript materials integrated with a slightly revised version of Swammerdam&#146;s Historia insectorum generalis (1669). Boerhaave&#146;s biography of the author, which prefaces the work, remains the chief published source of information about Swammerdam&#146;s life. The English translation of Biblia natura was prepared by the physician John Hill (1716?-75), author of several botanical treatises (including the monumental Vegetable System [1759-75]) and a host of miscellaneous works.

        Civan, Roi de Bungo, Histoire Japonnaise , ou Tableau de l'Education d'un Prince

      Jean Nourse, Londres 1758 - Two volumes, small octavo; a neat set in contemporary calf, flat spines gilt in compartments, slight rubbing. Educational use of an imaginary voyage setting. Second edition, following a 1754 version by the same publisher. Both works are of some rarity, NUC listing a single copy of the first and only two copies of this edition. The book is a roman d'éducation about an imagined kingdom of famed serenity and good government, written for Joseph II. Madame le Prince de Beaumont (1711-1780) was a prolific writer whose work was principally known for a 'cachet religieux, moral et sensé' (NBG). Civan is dedicated to Prince Joseph (later Joseph II, first emperor of the House of Hapsburg-Lorraine) best known for an ill-fated series of reforms which attempted to improve the conditions of the peasantry. As the introduction explains, the tale of the Roi de Bungo was intended to offer the young Princes 'un Modèle digne de leur émulation'. Moreover, Beaumont saw in the example of Civan what she contended would provide 'ces Guides qu'il eut besoin de chercher chez des Estrangers'. The work's rarity is confirmed by the entry in the NBG: clearly not having the work to hand, they refer to it as 'Cida, Roi de Burgo'. It has recently been released in a scholarly reprint, edited by Alix Deguise. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
