        Notizie intorno ad Isotta da Rimino scritte dal conte Giammaria Mazzucchelli.

      Edizione seconda accresciuta dall?Autore. Brescia, dalle Stampe di Giambatista Bossini, 1759. In 12esimo, 1 c. bianca, antip. con ill. a p. p. incisa in rame raffigurante ?Isottae Ariminensis?, front. con fregio tip., pp. 46 + 1 c. bianca, 2 tavv. f. t. più volte rip., numerate 2 e 3 (la 1 è considerata quella dell?antip.) e raffiguranti l'una sei monete con l'effigie della nobil donna, l'altra il suo sepolcro, sobria leg. in cartonato marezz. marrone, contropiatti in carta colorata, tagli pezzati in rosso / blu. Seconda edizione, assai rara, della monografia dedicata a Isotta degli Atti, la celebre amante, poi moglie, di Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesti, signore di Rimini, e figlia di Francesco di Atto degli Atti, agiato mercante di lane e, più tardi, anche funzionario malatestiano (depositarius di Sigismondo), appartenente a un ramo della nobile famiglia di Sassoferrato stabilitasi a Rimini al principio del sec. XIV. Il Mazzucchelli circa le nozze di Isotta con Sigismondo, ipotizza il principio del 1453, quando lui le regala abiti e gioielli. E sottolinea che il Malatesti negava di aver contratto segretamente tale matrimonio (dal quale nascerà Antonia, poi maritata con Rodolfo Gonzaga). Ricordiamo il giudizio datone da Augusto Campana nel 1951, che definì le ?Notizie intorno ad Isotta da Rimino? ?una ?piccola cosa se si vuole, ma veramente egregia? e ?primo lavoro monografico di argomento malatestiano?. L?A. (Brescia, 1707 ? 1756), fu storico e letterato assai erudito. La tavola 2 reca uno strappo restaurato al margine laterale bianco, esente la parte incisa; la tavola 3 ha uno strappetto al margine laterale che interessa, seppur minimamente, la parte incisa; minimi difetti di allentatura alla cerniera; peraltro esemplare fresco e in buono stato di conservazione.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O., "Mardi 30" [I. 1759].. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Mit eigenh. Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief). 4to.. An Louise-Marie-Madelaine Dupin: "[ ] Je vous remercie, Madame, avec bien de la reconnaissance de vos bontes et de votre souvenir. Sans savoir quel est le sujet de votre proces je serai dans l'inquietude jusqu'a ce que j'apprenne quelle en est la decision. Pour eviter de la fatigue a vos domestiques, vous pouvez si vous voulez bien me tirer de peine me faire ecrire un mot par la poste. Quant a l'Ecrit dont vous voulez bien vous souvenir, Madame, s'il peut vous amuser dans un quart d'heure d'ennui, il aura ete bien mieux employe que je n'avais espere. En vous rappelant la respectable memoire d'un homme de bien qui vous honorait, puisse ce meme ecrit vous faire songer quelquefois a un autre homme inferieur a lui dans toute autre chose excepte dans son respect et dans ses sentiments pour vous. [ ]". - Madame Dupin heiratete 1722 den zwanzig Jahre älteren Claude Dupin, später Verwalter der königlichen Krongüter. Mit dem Reichtum ihres Mannes und mit ihren sozialen Talenten gelang es Louise Dupin, einen einflussreichen und geachteten literarischen Salon zu etablieren, in dem sie die führenden Aufklärer Frankreichs zu versammeln wusste, darunter Voltaire, Montesquieu und Buffon. Für die Erziehung ihres Sohnes engagierte sie Anfang der 1740er Jahre den jungen Jean-Jacques Rousseau, der später auch zuweilen ihr Sekretär war. In seinen ab 1782 postum erschienenen "Confessions" setzte Rousseau der Louise Dupin und ihren beiden Schwestern ein Denkmal; Louise bezeichnete er als die Schönste unter ihnen.

        Fables choisies, mises en vers par J. de la Fontaine

      Chez Desaint & Saillant [et] Durand, De l'Imprimerie de Charles-Antoine Jombert, Paris 1759 - A large paper copy with leaves measuring 465 x 330 mm (18 3/8 x 13 inches). Four volumes handsomely bound in contemporary French mottled calf. Red and green morocco spine labels with rich gilt detailing, marbled end-papers and all edges marbled. Discrete repairs to the spine ends without rebacking. Internal contents are generally in excellent condition although with the occasional spot of foxing and with a few worm pinholes running through the blank margins. Front inner hinge of Volume IV cracked but holding and slight age-toning to text leaves in that volume. Collating: [iv], xxx, xviii, 124; [iv], ii, 135, [1 blank]; [iv], iv, 146; [iv], ii, 188 [2 blanks]. Complete with the engraved frontis, the extra engraved portrait of Oudry (found only in some copies) and 275 other engraved plates after Jean-Baptiste Oudry by Cochin, Tardieu, Prevost, Chedel, Lempereur, and others, as well as numerous woodcut title vignettes, headpieces and tailpieces. The first plate for Fable CLXXII, "Le Singe et le Leopard" (facing p. 112 in Vol. III), is in the second state with the words "Le Leopard" on the banner. Bookplate of "John Drummond" in all four volumes and a second bookplate with the name illegible. After he became director of the Beauvais tapestry factory, Jean-Baptiste Oudry (1685-1755) began to amuse himself sketching subjects from La Fontaine's Fables. He made a total of 276 sketches between 1729 and 1735. The story of how they became the illustrations of the Fables of 1755 - 1759 is told in the "Avertissement de l'editeur" in Volume I by the publisher Montenault, who had bought the sketches. Ourdry's subjects being landscapes and animals, which he had drawn freely for his own enjoyment, Cochin undertook the responsibility of turning these freehand drawings into finished prints. Although Oudry's skill at portraying animals and his interpretation of La Fontaine's humor can hardly be surpassed, Cochin's sure and experienced hand did much to improve the original designs, particularly the figures. He redrew them, correcting the figures and background and supplying precise lines for the engravers.La Fontaine's towering classic of French literature. "They are like a basket of strawberries. You begin by selecting the largest and best, but, little by little, you eat first one, then another, till at last the basket is empty," wrote the famed wit Madame de Sevigne. La Fontaine did not start writing full time until he was over thirty, but he would become one of the major figures in the French canon. His fables are his most well known and well regarded work -- he collected and adapted close to 240 of them. In early editions, La Fontaine drew chiefly from classical western sources, like Aesop and Phaedrus, but as the fables grew in popularity and he added more to them, he would draw from Eastern and Oriental stories as well as Continental ones. The Fables were first released on 1668, with the final 12th book published in 1694. "?La Fontaine became the greatest lyric poet of his time." (New York Review of Books). [Attributes: First Edition]

        The London Magazine or Gentleman's Monthly Intelligencer for 1759 complete, vol. 28; xxviii

      London: R. Baldwin. 1759. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. Bound volume of Jan. - Dec. 1759, in early or original half brown calf and marbled boards, 730 pp, index, with 27 of 28 plates as called for by the binder's directions; lacking only the map of the 'seat of war in the empire of Germany' supposed to be at p. 8. Otherwise very good, with all plates present including folding charts, frontispiece, etc. Light rubbing to binding and lacking spine label. Significant to Pittsburghers for having the first published map of the city of Pittsburgh named as Pittsburgh in the January 1759 issue (a 4 x 4 inch woodcut vignette map); in late November, the French, who occupied Pittsburgh and had built Fort DuQuesne, came under attack from the British General John Forbes and his forces and set fire to their own fort and fled. The fort was rebuilt quickly and renamed Fort Pitt and the settlement surrounding the fort dubbed Pittsburgh, both in honor of William Pitt, the Earl of Chatham. News reached London quickly and this is the first published map and one of the earliest published accounts of the skirmish and name change. Another version of this map appeared at the same time in Scots Magazine of similar dimensions but slightly different, and these two compete for the honor of the first published map of Pittsburgh.

[4], xliv, 176, 169-192. xii, 272pp. Engraved vignette to title of each volume, two further vignettes to the first poem, 'Castle Hill'. Handsomely bound in contemporary black morocco, contrasting morocco lettering-pieces, richly gilt to spine and boards. A.E.G. Marbled endpapers. Lightly rubbed, with chipping to lettering-piece and minute wormholes to base of spine, Vol I. Ink inscriptions of' Mary Pearse, 1759' to blank fly of each volume, repeated in 1783 to Vol I. Occasional marginal worming, small paper flaw to Aa2, Vol. I, just touching a single letter, and T4, Vol II, causing loss of page number, else a crisp set. The rare final publication of James Fortescue (1716-1777), Anglican clergyman and writer. A Devonian by birth but an Oxford-man and fellow of Exeter College by education and career, Fortescue includes lengthy poems based on his home-county; Devonia and two of Castle Hill, in addition to 'The Rise and Progress of Science'. The collection of prose, including pieces 'On the Constitution of Nature' and 'Dissertations on Man' amongst poetry attracted significant and somewhat divided critical attention on first publication, with the presentation of various works described as 'very properly intermingled' by The Critical Review but severely criticised in The Monthly Review. Similarly, what the former considers poetic genius, the latter considers unworthy of critical comment, despite lengthy quotation: 'we may safely defy the boldest Aristarchus in Europe, to render compleat and impartial justice to the several curious passages...which may strike him in attentive perusal of these two volumes'. ESTC locates only four copies within the UK (BL, Cambridge, Oxford and Exeter College, Oxford) and six in North America (Cornwell, John Hopkins, Newberry, Chicago, Michigan and Yale). ESTC N8882.. First Edition. 8vo in 4s.

        The Great Charter and Charter of the Forest, With Other Authentic

      1759. Blackstone's Handsome Edition of Magna Carta Blackstone, Sir William [1723-1780]. The Great Charter and Charter of the Forest, With Other Authentic Instruments: To Which is Prefixed an Introductory Discourse, Containing the History of the Charters. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1759. [iv], lxxvi, [iv], 86 pp. As in many copies, the half-title and table of contents (Tabula) are bound between pp lxxvi and p. 1. Folio (13-1/2" x 10-1/2"). Contemporary calf, gilt rules to boards, raised bands, gilt ornaments and lettering piece to spine, dentelles to board edges, marbled endpapers. Rubbing to extremities with wear to head of spine, front joint cracked, rear joints starting, corners bumped and somewhat worn, a few shallow scuffs and some minor staining to boards. Moderate toning to text, light foxing in places, upper corner of text block bumped, internally clean. * First edition. Texts of documents in Latin, Blackstone's essay in English. The engraved dedication to the Earl of Westmoreland is surmounted with his armorial ensigns; initials in the text are ornamented with engravings of various buildings at Oxford University. The tail pieces on pages lxxvi and 73 are historical vignettes; the other ten tail-pieces are facsimiles of the royal seals that are attached to the original documents. This remarkable work is esteemed for its production and scholarship. Its physical appeal was recognized as early as 1829 in Richard Thompson's An Historical Essay on the Magna Charta of King John, which described it as a "beautiful and rare edition." Blackstone's essay, which is based on a great deal of original research, argued that the charter was the foundation of English liberties. This idea, first proposed by Coke, was a central tenet of Whig ideology. More important, Blackstone's research into the original texts demonstrated that all earlier editions of the charter were based on the significantly different reissue of 1225, in the reign of Henry III, rather than the original one endorsed at Runnymede. His philological approach was highly influential; it established the textual focus that has governed subsequent study of the charter. Eller notes that Worrall's Bibliotheca Legum Angliae (1788) lists an edition from 1758 with the title Magna Charta and Charta de Foresta. She was not able to lo

Dans cet ouvrage, il décrit d¿abord les techniques utilisées pour l¿ablation des polypes gynécologiques, en s¿appuyant sur 25 observations. La seconde partie de l¿ouvrage est consacrée aux ¿polypes du nez, de la gorge, &c.¿. Levret passe en revue les différentes méthodes de traitement utilisées (cautérisation, incision, arrachement et ligature), et rapporte 17 observations (11 personnelles et 6 de Manne). Cet ouvrage est orné de six belles planches, illustrant les instruments antérieurement employés (par Ambroise Paré, Fabrice de Hilden, Le Cat, ¿) et ceux, ingénieux, inventés par l¿auteur, au premier rang desquels se trouve son « speculum oris » qui en fait un pionnier de la laryngoscopie. Heirs of Hippocrates, 861 ; Ricci (The development of gynaecological surgery and instruments), pp. 233-234 ; Goldschmid (Entwicklung und bibliographie der pathologisch-anatomischen abbildung), p.245 ; Willemot, pp. 136-138. ; J. Willemot & A. Ségal. Endoscopie, pp. 492-495 (In : Willemot et al., Naissance et développement de l¿oto-rhino-laryngologie dans l¿histoire de la médecine. Acta oto-rhino-laryng. Belge, 1981, 354, suppl. II). Manque à Waller. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Map of the Province of Pensilvania.

      1759 - London: T.Kinnersley, 1759, Sheet 135 x 210mm. A map of the Province of Pennsylvania published to illustrate the conflict between the British, French and their native allies for control of the area during the Seven Years' War (known as the 'French and Indian War in America). In particular it marks Fort Duquesne, a French fort on the Ohio River. In September 1758 the British attacked the fort: an advanced force was crushed by the French, who then burned the fort and retreated before the main force arrived. The British then rebuilt it as Fort Pitt, which evolved into Pittsburgh. This map was published in 'The Grand Magazine of Magazines. or Universal Register', which was mostly written by David Henry. Published as a competitor to the 'Gentleman's Magazine', Henry appears not to have scruples about the sources of his illustrations; this map seems to have been adapted from Kitchin's map for the 'London Magazine', published in 1756, before these events. Thus this map is marked 'F.t du Quesne now called Pittsburg', a very early usage of the name.
