Truffé de 3 planches gravées (2 dépliantes représentant des détails d'architecture antique, 1 simple: figures antiques) et d'une carte gravée par d'Anville: "Das Homerische Troja". Cartonnage du milieu du 19e siècle. Dos muet. Plats décorés de figures gravées collées. Reliure un peu frottée. Quelques salissures et défauts d'usage. Seconde partie des planches un peu brunie. Autrement un exemplaire très frais. 1). Rare réunion des deux volumes publiés à 11 ans de différence. Ouvrage richement illustré et rare que ce soit la première ou la seconde partie séparément, et précieux pour le travail archéologique contenu. Hirt (1759-1837) fut le premier professeur d'archéologie de l'Université de Berlin et le cofondateur du Berliner Museen et de la Bauakademie. Le premier volume (plus commun) est consacré aux dieux du Panthéon, tandis que la seconde est consacrée aux démons et aux dieux du monde souterrain. Les illustrations ont toutes été rassemblées à la fin, et sont reliées ensemble pour les deux volumes avec une numérotation continue. Contrairement à ce qu'indique le titre, la seconde partie ne compte que 19 planches, mais il semble que celle qui manque ne soit pas très loin. Le cartonnage est en effet décoré de figures archéologiques gravées, soigneusement découpées. Exemplaire particulièrement frais. 2).

Giuseppe VASI (Corleone, 27 Agosto 1710 - Roma, 16 Aprile 1782)
1759. "Il Casino di Pio IV, noto anche come Villa Pia, fu completato nel 1561 come residenza estiva per papa Pio IV, circondata dagli alberi e dai prati dei giardini vaticani. Un primo progetto dell'impianto architettonico e un inizio di costruzione della Casina vennero compiuti durante il pontificato di Papa Paolo IV Carafa su disegno di Pirro Ligorio. Veduta tratta dalla monumentale opera "" Delle magnificenze di Roma antica e moderna "". Pubblicata in 10 volumi dal 1747 al 1761, l'opera presenta 238 incisioni in rame, ciascuna incisione con testo narrativo che fornisce informazioni storiche e documentarie. Esemplare tratto dall'edizione del 1786. A partire dall'edizione del 1786, l'opera del Vasi, fu aggiornata dal figlio Mariano, che la pubblicò col titolo ""Raccolta delle più belle vedute antiche, e moderne di Roma"", mostrando solo il nome del padre come autore. Questa nuova edizione presentava molte tavole della I edizione, ed alcune nuove. Anche questa di Vasi figlio fu pubblicata più volte, sempre con l'aggiunta di nuove tavole. Acquaforte, completa dei margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione." "This 1761 etching by Giuseppe Vasi is an interesting record of the changes made by Pope Clement XIII to the surroundings and accesses to the small casino designed by Pirro Ligorio for Pope Pius IV in 1561. View taken from 1786 edition of the Vasi's Delle Magnificenze di Roma Antica e Moderna (first edition, in X books, published between 1747-61).

It is one of the few attempts that have been made to reduce the common law into system.[Finch's] definitions were exact, his style concise and nervous, and his illustrations clear and authentic. Most of the valuable parts of Finch are incorporated in Blackstone's Commentaries" (Sweet & Maxwell). The first English-langu … [Click Below for Full Description]

DU CHATELET (Gabrielle-Émilie Le Tonnelier de Breteuil, marquise), NEWTON (Isaac)
Paris, Desaint & Saillant, Lambert, 1759. 2 volumes in-4 (255 x 196 mm), plein veau havane marbré de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés de compartiments richement fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin bordeaux et havane, triple filet d'encadrement à froid sur les plats, filet doré sur les coupes, tranches jaspées, (2) f., xxxix, (1), (4), 437 p., 9 planches dépliantes et (2) f., 180 p., 2 planches dépliantes, 297, (2) p., 3 planches dépliantes. Édition originale posthume de la traduction par la marquise du Châtelet de 'Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica', l'œuvre maîtresse de Newton, l'un des ouvrages scientifiques les plus importants jamais édités. L'illustration comprend 14 planches gravées dépliantes représentant des centaines de figures mathématiques. Entreprise dès 1745, cette traduction a été la grande œuvre de la vie de Madame du Châtelet sur laquelle elle travailla pendant cinq années. L'édition s'avéra une entreprise plus longue et chaotique que prévu: lorsque le livre parut enfin, en 1759, la marquise était morte depuis dix ans. Si la bataille des newtoniens était alors gagnée, Voltaire dans sa préface rappelle la férocité de la lutte et l'action décisive de Madame Du Châtelet. La traduction des "Principes" est suivie de deux travaux théoriques majeurs de Madame Du Châtelet qui prolongent et complètent ceux de Newton: "Exposition abrégée du système du monde et explication des principaux Phénomènes astronomiques tirée des Principes de Newton" et "Solution analytique des principaux Problèmes qui concernent le Système du Monde".

Cooper, Samuel
Boston: New-England: Printed by Green & Russell, and Edes & Gill..., 1759. xi, [1 blank], [13]-53 [3 blanks] pp, with the half title. Stitched into modern marbled wrappers. A short closed tear expertly repaired [no loss]. Very Good. With the contemporary ownership signature and inscription of James Cushing, 1759. Cooper, "for many years pastor of the Brattle Street Church, and later ardent defender of the rights of the colonists" [Streeter Sale 684], was an intimate friend of John Adams and Benjamin Franklin. He "became one of the most popular preachers in the country" [JCB Library]. This is one of only "a small number of sermons and miscellaneous pamphlets" that he wrote [DAB]. It illustrates the devotion to England that still permeated the Colonies, but also warns that continued loyalty depended upon Americans' enjoyment of the full panoply of British liberties. Cooper's delight in the English victory is sweetened by "a thorough Sense of the Importance of the American Service" in the reduction of the French capital. For Cooper, recounting the difficult task faced by the American troops, it proves "that a limited Government, happily administered, can command in uncommon Exigencies, a greater Aid from the People than the most unbounded Despotism." Americans "are attached to those priviledges which are the Birth-right of British Subjects." Indeed, "American Affairs do bear perhaps as near an Affinity to those of ancient Israel, as any modern Story; so that many Passages in the sacred Writings founded upon the peculiar Circumstances of that People, may with gr … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOWES P204. FORD 253. SABIN 25512. This book was for many years attributed to Benjamin Franklin, but it was more likely written by his co-agent in London, Richard Jackson, with Franklin's advice.
