      - Brunet III, cols. 918-919; Horn & Schenkling 13091 and 3093; Hünersdorff, Coffee, pp. 862-63; Nissen, BBI 1156; Stafleu & Cowan 4288; V.d. Velde, Mikroscoop IV, p. 213. First edition, with the rare final part, of one of the most beautiful works on microscopy issued during the 18th century, containing remarkable coloured plates of magnified insects, shells, plants, and parts of the microscope, and an especially illuminating and drawing apparatus. The first part also includes a description of the coffee plant (pp. 189-194); the plant itself, ''with details of the blossom and fruit is illustrated on plate 97, and in microscopic detail on plate 98'' (Hünersdorff).This "highly estimated work" (Brunet), was published in installments from 1759 onwards, though the complete first part is dated 1762. Before the first series of 100 plates was finished in 1763, the Nachleese , or first continuation, issued in five installments of ten plates each, was started in April 1762. In 1765 a second continuation was published in two installments, containing a 20 pp. description of a microscope on one plate and Winterschmidt's notes of 8 pages on a house-fly on one plate on another (the latter present here from another copy and loosely inserted). In 1776 the very rare third continuation was published posthumously as Letzte Beobachtungen seiner mikroskopischen Ergötzungen, welche ein nicht gemeines Nest mit der kleinsten Art von Schlupfwespen in Flockwolle enthalten (two pages with two hand-coloured plates) and Nebst der Beschreibung und Abbildung eines neuen und vollständigen Universalmikroskops, welches dreyerley Arten von Sonnenmikroskopen, ein Compositum, ein Anatomisches, ein Einfaches, und ein Hand- oder Spaziermikroskop; auch zweyerley Arten von Cameris Obscuris abgiebt. Herausgebracht und verfertigt von Wilhelm Burucker (eight pages with eight hand-coloured plates). This continuation was not incorporated in the later edition of 1804. Apart from the sophistication mentioned, a fine work in a contemporary binding.

        Miscellaneous Pieces.

      London: Printed for D. Wilson and T. Durham,, 1759. Translated from the new edition of his works in quarto printed at Paris. Octavo (203 x 118 mm). Contemporary calf, titles to red morocco label to spine, gilt decorated compartments, double rule frame to covers gilt, edges sprinkled red. Small chip to head of spine, slight wear to tops, top edge dust toned, slight scratches to covers, 6 stubs visible at inner margin between pp. 100-1 due to printing error, with no effect on the collation; an excellent copy. First edition in English. This collection contains: an essay upon taste; New Persian Letters; The Temple of Gnidus; a Defence of the Spirit of Laws: to which are added some explanations, and a speech given by Montesquieu in Paris on 24 January 1728. It also contains the Eulogium on Montesquieu and an Analysis of the Spirit of Laws by Jean le Rond d'Alembert, the French mathematician, philosopher and theorist. Montesquieu's L'Esprit des Loix was a huge influence both on English law, especially as mediated by William Blackstone, and on those who framed the American Constitution. Blackstone's Commentaries, Hamilton's Federalist Papers and Tocqueville's Democracy in America are all thoroughly imbued with Montesquieu's theories. In particular, Montesquieu is credited with the idea that the powers of government should be separated and balanced in order to guarantee the freedom of the individual, a key concept in the creation of the US Constitution. An uncommon work, traced twice at auction. This copy with the bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to the front pastedown, heir to a successful chain of dispensing chemists, based in Nelson, Lancashire: "A collector of books, in a delightful room at his home, white-painted bookshelves stacked high on all the available wall space show to advantage the hand-tooled leather bindings of a collection that has been acquired slowly and with discrimination over the years" (The Chemist and Druggist, 7 September 1957).

        Prospetto della seconda Machina eretta per comando di Sua Eccellenza il Sig. Principe Don Lorenzo Colonna la sera delli 29 Giugno1759

      1759 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1759. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, qualche piega di carta, minimi difetti, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo. Etching, printed on contemporary laid paper, small tear perfectly repaired, otherwise in good condition The engravings have been laid on canvas and framed; after a long work to repair them, they now look almost perfect. Signs of glue on verso, on recto signs of abrasions and oxidations. Chinea literally means white female mule, the one the Kings of Spain offered every year to the Pope as a solemn payment of the income of the Kingdome of Naples. The horse, duly trained, knelt in front of the Pope and to offer him a silver vase with money inside, that was fastened to its saddle. The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as per Charles II decree of the 12 of May 1691, the Greats of Spain were obliged to take part to the cortege, which was then followed by two series o

        MANUSCRIT EN ITALIEN]. PRINCIPI DI MECCANICA [PRINCIPES DE MÉCANIQUE]. 1759.

      probablement près de Brescia ?], 1756-1759 - 1 volume in-folio (34 x 24,5 cm) de 235 pages chiffrées à l'exception de la page de titre qui compte pour la page 1. La page de titre est dessinée (dessin au lavis rocaille) et calligraphiée. Au bas ç gauche de la page de titre on peut lire à la plume Barella, en bas au centre "1756. 30 Xbre. On lit ce même nom : Barella en haut à gauche de la garde blanche collée au verso du premier plat. Nombreuses figures à la plume dans le texte. Reliure plein parchemin à l'imitation, dos à nerfs muet. Excellent état de l'ensemble. Belle écriture bien lisible. Le texte est en italien tandis qu'on trouve quelques titres de chapitres repris en marge d'une autre plume, en français cette fois. Le manuscrit est divisé en 2 parties. La première partie s'intitule Nozioni preliminari riguardanti la natura del movimento, e le sue principali spezie (nature du mouvement des principales espèces). La deuxième partie s'intitule Della Meccanica (de la Mécanique). Au début on trouve sur deux feuillets titrés du titre principal Principii di Meccanica, un Objet de la Mécanique, les Divisions de la Mécanique, une Histoire de la Mécanique. Sous toute réserve, il pourrait s'agir d'une copie d'un cours de Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1736-1813) lorsqu'il était professeur à l’école d’artillerie de Turin où il fut nommé en 1755 à l'âge de 19 ans. Ce qui nous fait penser qu'il pourrait s'agir d'une copie d'un des premiers cours de mécanique de Lagrange est le fait que Lagrange n'est jamais cité dans l'intégralité du manuscrit et que les titres des chapitres correspondent aux différents points de la mécanique étudiés et résolus par Lagrange. La Mécanique analytique de Lagrange n'a été publiée qu'en 1788, sans figures, celles-ci rendues inutiles par l'emploi en tous cas de formules algébriques. A partir de la page 177 notre manuscrit traite des Machines (poulie, engrenage, levier, treuil, roue dentée, vis, etc.). En résumé, nous vendons ce manuscrit de Mécanique pour ce que nous savons avec certitude, c'est à dire qu'il a été rédigé entre 1756 et 1759, probablement achevé en 1759, en Italie du nord (proche de Brescia ou Turin). il est rédigé en italien, comporte très peu de ratures et est agrémenté de nombreuses figures (précises). Il est complet. L'attribution du texte à Lagrange mérite d'être vérifiée et n'influe ici en rien sur le prix proposé. Ce manuscrit est vendu pour ce qu'il est, c'est à dire une copie anonyme en italien d'un traité complet de Mécanique en deux parties du milieu du XVIIIe siècle. Nous n'avons retrouvé aucun imprimé au cours de la seconde moitié du XVIIIe siècle reprenant ce texte en italien, ni aucune traduction en français. BEL EXEMPLAIRE.

        Oudeschild, Texel - Theodorus de Roode naar Pieter van Cuyck, 1759.

      DE REDE VAN TEXEL?Het Oude Schild op Texel?, kopergravure vervaardigd door Theodorus de Roode naar een tekening van Pieter van Cuyck uit 1759, uitgegeven te Delft door M. Roelofswaert . Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 27 x 38,5 cm.In de tijd van de VOC vertrokken de schepen uit Amsterdam, Enkhuizen en Hoorn vanaf de rede van Texel naar de Ori?nt. De schepen wachten net buiten Oudeschild op goede wind. Jaarlijks vertrekken zo?n drieduizend schepen vanaf De Rede van Texel aan hun reis, die vele maanden of zelfs jaren duurt.De VOC zorgt, door het inkopen van verse producten als vlees, groente en water, voor inkomsten voor Oudeschild. Met kleine bootjes leveren bewoners de spullen aan de schepen, die te groot zijn om dicht bij de kust te komen. De aanwezigheid van de VOC heeft grote aantrekkingskracht op mensen van buiten het eiland. Zo komen er veel loodsen in Oudeschild wonen, die de enorme zeilschepen letterlijk door de ondiepe stukken van de Waddenzee en het Marsdiep loodsen.Schilder en geschiedschrijver Pieter van Cuyck (1720 - 1787) is vooral bekend van zijn ?Brieven over Texel en de naby-gelegen eilanden?. Van Cuyck beschrijft hier niet alleen de geschiedenis van de eilanden, maar gaat ook in op de lokale gebruiken, het dialect, de natuur en de toeristische bezienswaardigheden.

        The Essays of Michael Seigneur de Montaigne. The seventh edition, with very considerable amendments and improvements. From the most elegant and accurate French edition of Peter Coste.

      London, S. and E. Ballard, 1759. - Three volumes (complete). Octavo. Volume I: [28],414,[26] pages/ Volume II: [4],608 pages / Volume III: [36], [4],468,[27] pages. Original Hardcover (contemporary calf with gilt lettering on spine). Very good condition with the original spinelabels. Interior bright and clean. No foxing. Rear cover of Volume II nearly detached (this volume needs attention from a bookbinder). Provenience: From the library of Henry Augustus Viscount Dillon, with his bookplate / Exlibris in all three volumes. Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (28 February 1533 – 13 September 1592) was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with serious intellectual insight; his massive volume Essais (translated literally as "Attempts" or "Trials") contains some of the most influential essays ever written. Montaigne had a direct influence on writers all over the world, including Francis Bacon, René Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Albert Hirschman, William Hazlitt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Eric Hoffer, Isaac Asimov, and possibly on the later works of William Shakespeare. In his own lifetime, Montaigne was admired more as a statesman than as an author. The tendency in his essays to digress into anecdotes and personal ruminations was seen as detrimental to proper style rather than as an innovation, and his declaration that, 'I am myself the matter of my book', was viewed by his contemporaries as self-indulgent. In time, however, Montaigne would come to be recognized as embodying, perhaps better than any other author of his time, the spirit of freely entertaining doubt which began to emerge at that time. He is most famously known for his skeptical remark, "Que sçay-je?" ("What do I know?", in Middle French; directly rendered Que sais-je? in modern French). Remarkably modern even to readers today, Montaigne's attempt to examine the world through the lens of the only thing he can depend on implicitly—his own judgment—makes him more accessible to modern readers than any other author of the Renaissance. Much of modern literary non-fiction has found inspiration in Montaigne and writers of all kinds continue to read him for his masterful balance of intellectual knowledge and personal storytelling. (Wikipedia) Provenience: Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee, 13th Viscount Dillon (28 October 1777 – 24 July 1832) was an Irish peer, writer and MP for Harwich and for County Mayo. Henry Augustus was born on 28 October 1777 at Brussels, the son of Charles Dillon-Lee, the twelfth Viscount Dillon, and his wife Henrietta Maria, the only daughter of Constantine John Phipps, 1st Baron Mulgrave. In the year 1794, when he was seventeen years old, Henry Augustus was a Colonel of the Irish Brigade. In 1799, at age 22, he was a Member of Parliament for County Harwich, and in 1802 became a Knight for Mayo. His knighthood ended in 1813 upon the death of his father, when he acceded to the Peerage as the thirteenth Viscount Dillon of Costello-Gallen. In February 1807, Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee married Henrietta Browne, sister of Dominick, 1st Baron Oranmore and Browne, daughter of Dominick-Geoffrey Browne, by Margaret, daughter of the Hon. George Browne, 4th son of the 1st Earl of Altamont. The marriage produced nine children: Henrietta Maria (1807, Halifax – 1895, London), a social reformer, married Edward John Stanley, 2nd Baron Stanley of Alderley. Margaret Frances Florence (d. 1885), m. to geologist William John Hamilton. Louisa Anne Rose, d. 1902, m. to the Hon. Spencer-Cecil Ponsonby of Bessborough. Helena Matilda. Charles Henry, b. 1810 at Dublin, d. 1865 at Ditchley, Oxford; succeeded his father as 14th Viscount. Theobald Dominick, b. 1811; succeeded his brother as 15th Viscount.

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: ?850,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

Le premier ministre, José de Carvalho, marquis de Pombal, estima que les jésuites avait trop d?influence à la cour. L'attentat du 4 septembre 1758 qui faillit coûter la vie au roi, lui permit de passer à l'action. Des membres de la famille de Tavora, proche des jésuites, furent accusés et exécutés. Les biens des jésuites furent confisqués. Joseph Ier informa le pape qu'il décida d'expulser les jésuites de tous les territoires portugais (20 avril 1759). Gabriel Malagrida (1689-1761), jésuite d'origine italienne, missionnaire au Brésil, appelé à la cour de Portugal en raison de sa réputation de sainteté, fut jugé comme hérétique et brûlé vif dans un autodafé solennel le 21 Septembre 1761. - - 2- Manifeste qu'Ignace de Loyola, confesseur, de son vivant instituteur de la Compagnie, soi-disante de Jesus, adresse aux pontifes, aux rois, aux ministres, aux gens d'épée & de robe, aux femmes, aux filles, aux veuves, aux orphelins, aux justes, aux pécheurs, aux chrétiens, aux idolâtres, à tous les états, à toutes les conditions du monde entier; aux Jésuites eux-mêmes, pour désavouer tous les forfaits que cette infâme société a eu l'impudence de commettre.

        Candide, Ou L'optimisme, Traduit De L'allemand De Mr. Le Docteur Ralph

      Geneva: Gabriel Cramer, 1759. First Edition. Full Leather. Fine. The third of the first four editions, according to Bengesco, 1436, and the fourth edition, according to Wade (see Voltaire and Candide, 1959, p. 201), dated 1759 with 299 pages, clandestinely printed and published by Cramer in Geneva and preceeding the other 16 different editions published throughout Europe in 1759. The present copy conforms to Bengesco 1436, in every respect, which is "page by page, line for line like the first edition" except for the "que ce ce fut" error on page 103, an error which was introduced by Cramer into the early printings, then doubtless not "fixed" as it was correct in the first place. Note that the fleurons agree exactly with Bengesco 1436, as follows: p. 134 is a basket of fruits; p. 228 shows two horns 'a plenty; the fleuron at p. 115 is repeated on pages 179 and 193; fleuron on page 213 is signed N. C. and is repeated on page 279; page 277 is paginated 177. The present copy also agrees with Wade (see Voltaire and Candide, 1959, p. 201), in every respect, including that page 17 is numbered 15. Both the above references to Bengesco and Wade show signatures A-N3, meaning they are bound without the Table of Chapters; the present copy, like 7 of the 10 known copies of the first edition, shows signatures A-N6, without the final leaves, N7 (a blank) and without N8, instructions to the binder concerning the cancellation of two pairs of leaves, B4, B9 and D6, D7. In addition to the above, let us state the textual points in the present copy: page 31 (B4), an unnecessary paragraph break was eliminated. The words "mais il y a une raison....." do NOT start a new paragraph; page 41 (B9), several short sentences about the Lisbon earthquake, were rewritten, as "car, dit-il, tout ceci est....."; page 84 (D6, D7), reads "Nos filles se trouverent...."; page 103, reads "que ce fut....." as explained above, was correct to begin with, then discovered by Cramer and was not "fixed"; page 125, reads "mais ils se leverent precisement......"; page 242, the paragraph beginning "Candide etait afflige....."; has been removed, by Voltaire, while the book was being printed, as it was critical of German poets. Pages 121 - 168 (signatures F and G) are a larger type than the rest of the book. In summation, the present copy agrees with the first edition, except that the "que ce ce fut...." error, was discovered and not inserted, and the fleurons differ, but are by Cramer, who printed the first four editions. This, a wide margined copy, is larger than other copies we have seen at 165 mm x 95 mm; beautifully bound in late 19th Century full tan leather, with raised bands and gilt decoration on spine, with a brown leather lettering piece, marbled end papers, all edges gilt; printed on laid paper. The text is remarkably clean and bright; a fine copy. PMM204.

Octavo, contemporary full speckled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, green morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers. $8500.First edition in English of the “first attempt at a history of California” and an essential resource “regarding the original condition of the Indians of any part of North America,” published only a year after the first edition in Spanish, with engraved folding map of California, engraved frontispiece in each volume, and two copper-engraved plates of native life, which “appear to have been issued with but few copies” (Cowan, 238, 639), in handsome contemporary calf bindings.Venegas' History ""contains more on Lower California than almost any other book that had been published in 150 yearsÂ… Throughout the work great attention is being paid to the geography of the countryÂ… Although the work is a most scholarly one, [it is] written in very lucid style and amply fortified by such authorities as [Venegas] had. Although the author was a Jesuit, the work is written in a secular spirit, much different from the point of view usually taken by writers of other religious orders"" (Wagner 132, citing the 1758 Spanish first edition). ""The volumes are replete with valuable geographical, historical and ethnological material not found in other works, many of the sources of Venegas' knowledge never having been published"" (Eberstadt 105: 305). ""The work of Father Venegas is undoubtedly the most faithful narration we possess, regarding the original condition of the Indians of any part of North America"" (Field). It is the ""foundation of a library of Californiana."" Hill 1768. Cox II:127. Field, 405-06. Howes V69. Sabin 98845. Graff 4471. Zamorano 80, 78. Streeter 2435.
