ijsgezicht, winter scene - Canot after Jean-Baptiste Pillement
1759. "Les plaisirs de l'Hiver" Kopergravure van Pierre Charles Canot, naar een tekening van Jean-Baptiste Pillement. Uitgegeven te Londen in 1759. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 38,1 x 49,8 cm. Canot (1710 - 1777), van origine Fransman, was lid van de Britse Incorporated Society of Artists, en werd gekozen tot associated engraver toen de titel in 1770 werd ingevoerd door Londense Royal Academy. Canot stelde z'n werk tentoon in de Society of Artists, de Free Society en de Royal Academy. Als vakbekwaam kunstenaar zette hij van befaamde schilders een groot aantal werken in de plaat. Pillement (1728 - 1808) was een Franse schilder en ontwerper bekend om zijn prachtige en gedetailleerde landschappen, maar wiens stempel op de geschiedenis met name kwam door de gravures naar zijn tekeningen en de invloed die daarvan uitging op de verspreiding van de Rococo in Europa. Pillement was een - voor zijn tijd ongebruikelijk - zeer bereisd man en woonde en werkte tussen 1754-1763 in Londen. Daar speelde hij met groot succes in op de smaak van het Engelse publiek dat zijn landschappen zeer waardeerde. Uit die tijd stamt ook deze gravure. Prijs: Euro850,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling)

[NEWTON, Sir Isaac] DU CHÂTELET, Gabrielle-Émilie le Tonnelier de Breteuil, Marquise.
Paris: Desaint & Saillant; Lambert, 1759. First edition. First edition in French of Newton's Principia, "the greatest work in the history of science" (PMM), translated by Madame du Châtelet, intimate of Voltaire, with the assistance of Alexis-Claude Clairaut; this is an exceptional copy in original wrappers. Begun in 1745 but published posthumously, this is her most important work. It was the first translation into a language other than English and is "still the only French translation ever made ... The first volume contains, in addition to Books I and II [of Principia], a 'preface historique' and a poem by Voltaire. The second volume contains Book III and, separately paginated, 'Exposition abrégée du système du monde, et explication des principaux phénomenes astronomiques tirée des Principes de M. Newton' (pp. 1-116) ... There was also 'Solution analytique des principaux problèmes qui concernent le système du monde' (pp. 117-286)" (Gjertsen, Newton Handbook, p. 480). Voltaire's 'preface historique' is partly an extravagant Éloge of his late mistress but also a survey of Newton's philosophical position and the problems of translation. "Known throughout intellectual Europe as Émilie, the name popularized by Voltaire, Mme. du Châtelet--beyond the influence that she had for some fifteen years on the orientation of Voltaire's work and on his public activity--contributed to the vitality of French scientific life and to the parallel diffusion of Newtonianism and Leibnizian epistemology.

Manca alle biblioteche mediche di Osler, Cushing, Benjamin, Reynolds, norman, Barchas. "The basic principle of free transplantation, contained in the ancient Indian tradition, constituted, when fully understood and applied, the greatest single advance of the nineteenth century. Interest in the principles of the regeneration and transplantation of animal tissues was widespread in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, but it was Giuseppe Baronio, physician and naturalist of milan, who first demonstrated on sheep that full-thckness skin grafts could be successfully transplanted after detachment from the body. In the three experiments which he described in 1804 Baronio removed from the back of a sheep patches of akin which he transplanted to new site on the same aheep, one immediately, a second after eighteen minutes, and a third after one hour of detachment. All became succefully adherent to the new bed" (Gnudi & Webster). "This success also indicates another characteristic of the work to be performed from that time onwards: the use of animals for experiments under closely controlled conditions The hand of science had now fimly grasped the hand of surgery and was leading the latter away from … [Click Below for Full Description]

[VOLTAIRE.]
[Geneva: Gabriel Cramer,], 1759. One of the genuine rarities of 18th-century literature Duodecimo (161 x 93 mm), pp. 299. Contemporary French mottled calf, gilt-ruled spine compartments with centre flower tools between raised bands, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, red sprinkled edges. Housed in a dark brown quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Neat contemporary ownership inscription on title. A little very skilful repair to tips, occasional faint marking, an excellent copy. First edition, one of only a dozen or so recorded copies of the true first edition of this celebrated philosophical conte, one of the genuine rarities in major 18th-century literature. There were 18 editions of Candide in 1759 alone, all of them superficially alike, though only four of them, like this, have 299 pages. Recent research, following Ira Wade, Giles Barber, and Stephen Weissman, has identified this as the true first edition, with the following points: the title ornament of spray, fruit and flowers is repeated at pp. 193 and 266; p. 103, line 4, has the misprint "que ce ce fut" (corrected to "que ce fut" in later editions); p. 125, line 4, has "précisément" (corrected to "précipitamment" in later editions); with Voltaire's revisions on p. 31 eliminating an unnecessary paragraph break, and on p. 41, where several short sentences about the Lisbon earthquake were rewritten. The first edition does not preserve the cancelled paragraph on p. 242 critical of German poets (beginning "Candide était affligé") which survives unintentionally in the London edition. As in all but th … [Click Below for Full Description]

SMITH, Adam
London: for A. Millar, and A. Kincaid and J. Bell, in Edinburgh, 1759. London: for A. Millar, and A. Kincaid and J. Bell, in Edinburgh,, 1759. Octavo (208 x 122 mm). Twentieth-century sprinkled and panelled calf, spine ruled gilt in compartments, red morocco label to style, red edges. Complete with half-title and errata on last leaf; pp. 317-336 omitted, as issued, text and register complete. Lightly spotted throughout, more heavily in places, one or two leaves with light creases. Original free endpapers bound in, bearing the early ink ownership inscription of one William Radecliffe and the purchase price of 6 shillings. Half-title verso annotated "a very good book" with a further note to the title, "Moral but scientific & most formative", with scattered marginal reading notes throughout in two early hands; a very good copy. First edition, published in April 1759 with a recorded "print run of 1,000 copies" (Sher, Early Editions of Adam's Smith's Books, 13). Smith's first book and his later Wealth of Nations demonstrate "a great unifying principle… Smith's ethics and his economics are integrated by the same principle of self-command, or self-reliance, which manifests itself in economics in laissez faire" (Spiegel). Smith's famous phrase is first used here that would be repeated in the later work: that self-seeking men are often "led by an invisible hand… without knowing it, without intending it, to advance the interest of the society" (Part IV, Chapter 1). "The fruit of his Glasgow years… The Theory of Moral Sentiments would be enough to assure the author a respected plac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venegas, Miguel
London, 1759. Two volumes. [20],455pp. plus folding map and two plates, including frontispiece; [8],387pp. plus two plates, including frontispiece. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spines gilt. Moderate rubbing and wear to boards and spines, spine titles partially rubbed away, spine heads a bit chipped. Armorial bookplate of Lord Sandys on each front pastedown, scattered minor foxing. Overall, very good. The first English edition of this classic history of California, originally published in 1757 in Madrid. Venegas's work is the first general history of California and of the Spanish on the Pacific Coast and into the far Southwest, including southern Arizona and northern Sonora. It broke the general Spanish practice of concealing as much information as possible about their activities and possessions in America; noted bibliographer Henry R. Wagner expressed surprise that the work was permitted to be published at all. Wagner also states that the work "contains more on Lower California than almost any other book that had been published in one hundred and fifty years." The folding map is entitled, "An Accurate Map of California Drawn by the Society of Jesuits and Dedicated to the King of Spain" and was engraved on copper by noted cartographer, John Gibson. It shows the Baja Peninsula of California and the Gulf of California from the Colorado River down to Cape St. Lucas, with part of Sonora and Sinoloa in the south and the Gila River and Apache territory to the north. Part of the westernmost region of California itself is labeled "Unknown Tribes of Infid … [Click Below for Full Description]
