Terraneo Giantommaso
Torino, Stamperia Mairesse, 1759. Due voll. in un tomo in 4° cm. 27x19,8 pp. ; VIII-225-(3); VIII-232 : Legatura coeva cartonato rustico con dorso rifatto con titolo calligrafico; interno marginoso e pulito. Buon esemplare genuino. Celebre e rara opera storica di Giantommaso Terraneo (Torino 1714-1771) che illustra in polemica con i primi storici di Casa Savoia (Pingonio, Ludovico della Chiesa, Francesco Agostino della Chiesa, Samuele Guichenon, Pier Gioffredo…..) la vera ascendenza di Adelaide marchesa di Susa e contessa di Torino nell'undicesimo secolo che dal matrimonio con il terzo marito Oddone terzogenito di Umberto I, ebbe come figlio il conte Amedeo da cui discende la casata dei Savoia. Il Terraneo pubblicò solo le prime due parti mentre una terza parte manoscritta fu conservata alla Biblioteca Regia Università di Torino fino all'incendio del 1904 che la danneggiò gravemente. (v.

Hamburg und Leipzig Grunds Witwe und Holle, 1759. (20 x 12,5 cm). (6) 300 (10) S. Mit 7 gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Pappband der Zeit. Erste deutsche Ausgabe in einem Exemplar aus der Bibliothek des Astronomen Franz Xaver von Zach. - Der schwedische Astronom Wargentin (1717-1783) gibt im ersten Teil einen Überblick über die Grundlagen der geographischen Längenbestimmung und Methoden zu ihrer Bestimmung auf See. Er kommt dabei zu der Auffassung dass "die einfachste, und zugleich die vollkommenste, die sich nur erdenken ließe" (S. 168) die mit einer sehr ganggenauen Uhr wäre und verweist auf einen Londoner Uhrmacher (John Harrison) der angeblich eine solche Uhr gebaut hat. Im zweiten Teil beschreibt Wargentin die erfolgreiche Seereise von London nach Lissabon zur Überprüfung der Ganggenauigkeit, nach Berichten des schwedischen Astronomen F. Mallet, der bei einem Aufenthalt in London John Harrison und seine Uhren gesehen hat. Wargentin bleibt jedoch immer noch skeptisch. - Titel verso gestempelt.

YAMAWAKI, Toyo
Four finely handcolored full-page woodcuts in the text. 40 folding leaves; 44 folding leaves. Two vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers (minor rubbing), orig. block printed title labels on upper covers, new stitching. Kyoto: Yojuin, 1759. First edition of the first book to describe the first officially sanctioned dissection in Japan. Until the 18th century, Japanese medicine closely followed Chinese practices which did not regard anatomy as relevant to pathology or therapy. Additionally, there were strong social pressures against the use of dissections for medical research. Yamawaki (1705-62), a member of one of the greatest medical families of Japan, studied traditional medicine under both Goto Gonzan and Kagawa Shuan but was far more interested in what could be achieved on an empirical basis. He developed a healthy skepticism toward the theories of the internal organs as used in Chinese medicine and wanted to know more about the structure of the human body and the functions of its organs. "Toyo's opportunity came in 1754 when five thieves were executed in Kyoto, and three medical men from Obama fief asked for and received, for the first time, official permission to dissect one corpse. This permission was granted by the lord of Obama fief. Toyo was invited to join this group for the observation. Their interest focused mainly on the internal organs… "Toyo recorded his observations in 1759 in his Zoshi (on the viscera) which consisted of six pages of explanation and four pages of sketches drawn by his pupil Asanuma Sukemitsu. The sketches were reproduced by … [Click Below for Full Description]

SMITH, Adam.
London: for A. Millar, and A. Kincaid and J. Bell, in Edinburgh, 1759. Octavo (203 × 122 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, skilfully rebacked with original spine compartments laid down, red morocco label to style, sides with gilt roll border. Corners restored, first and last leaves tanned in margins from turn-ins, closed tear repaired to leaf C7 without loss, scattered light foxing and a couple of marginal chips, occasional pencil side-ruling and marginal markings; a very good copy. Complete with half-title and errata on last leaf; pp. 317-336 omitted, as issued, text and register complete. 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 place among Scottish moral philosophers, and Smith himself ranked it above the Wealth of Nations . Its central idea is the concept, closely related to conscience, of the impartial spectator who helps man to distinguish right from wrong. For the same … [Click Below for Full Description]

LAMBERT, Johann Heinrich.
Zürich: Heidegger und Compagnie, 1759. First edition. A Masterpiece in Descriptive Geometry. Lambert's second book was "intended for the artist wishing to give a perspective drawing without first having to construct a ground plan. It is nevertheless a masterpiece in descriptive geometry, containing a wealth of geometrical discoveries. In this work Lambert proved himself a geometer of great intuitive powers. In the generality of his outlook, as in certain specific aspects, his work resembles that of Monge later on, usually considered the founder of descriptive geometry as a distinct branch of mathematics. Lambert's investigations of possible constructions by the use of a simple ruler, for example, constructing an ellipse from five given points, was similar in spirit to the program of Poncelet and J. Steiner two generations later" (D.S.B.) "A qualitative leap was made by Lambert in his book Freye Perspective ... He tried to construct perspective pictures by using an implicit form of projective geometry, without a given plan and elevation of the scene. In some sense his Freye Perspective contains the most fruitful use of the plane as a model of space; that is, to work on the plane without projections of the spatial objects instead of the objects themselves. This idea was later developed by Gaspard Monge" (Grattan-Guinness: Companion Encyclopedia of the History and Philosophy of the Mathematical Sciences, p.1599). "In his Freye perspektive he not only discussed perspective drawing but also the intriguing problem of what geometric constructions can be made with a straight edge a … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOHNSTON, Thomas
[Boston: Engrav'd & Printed By Thos. Johnston for Step. Whiting, 1759. Copper engraving, 7 x 9 inches, on an approximately 9½ x 12 sheet. Corners chipped, with minor paper loss, not affecting image. A few short marginal closed tears, neatly repaired. Some scattered dust soiling, a bit of stray ink along plate mark. First State of a Legendary Colonial American Town View One of the rarest and most important early American engravings, Thomas Johnston's view of Quebec is "the most important engraved view of that city, as well as the earliest executed by an American" (Deak). The view was prepared in conjunction with the British campaign against Canada, and was first advertised for sale in the Boston Gazette on Aug. 13, 1759, little more than a month before the French stronghold surrendered on Sept. 17. A key identifies twenty prominent sites which illustrate the importance of the capture. The involved publication history of the print reaches back forty-four years prior to its American appearance. A variation of the view first appeared in Paris about 1715, with the imprint of "A Paris, Chez Jean Crepy," and under the title of Quebec, Ville Capital du Canada ou Nouvelle France, Le Siege d'une Evesque et d'une Cour Souveraine.. .. The title is followed by an eight-line description of the history of the settlement of New France, and this is in turn followed by a key to the twenty numbered buildings on the print. About the same time, circa 1715-20, it appeared under a different imprint, "A Paris Chez Chereau," with a slightly different title, reading Quebec, Capital … [Click Below for Full Description]

Je ne marchais jamais sans plume ni encre ni crayon, chaque demi-jour j'annotais le tout exactement et mes deux compagnons de voyage qui j'en faisais la lecture n'ont jamais trouv que j'eus altr la vrit - ainsi ils peuvent passer pour tmoins oculaires. La seule chose qui arrivait quelquefois c'est qu'aprs leur avoir lu ce que je venais d'crire, ils convenaient de la vrit mais ils avertissaient que j'avais oubli de marquer certaines choses ce qui m'engageait des additions qui m'ont oblig de le transcrire de nouveau. Ce n'est donc point ici un dtail de ce qu'il y a voir Paris mais simplement je n'ai aucun intrt de consigner ni de trouver des merveilles partout comme il arrive … [Click Below for Full Description]

BALBASTRE (Claude).
Paris, chez l'Auteur, rue d'Argenteuil dans la maison neuve St. Roch et aux adresses ordinaires, sans date (c.1759). Manuscrit in-4. 1f. 29pp. Plein veau écaille, dos lisse (Reliure de l'époque). Elégant manuscrit parfaitement calligraphié de cet recueil de 17 pièces pour le clavecin du compositeur français Claude Balbastre (Dijon, 1724 - Paris 1799). Aidé par les grands musicien du XVIIIème siècle (Rameau, etc.), Balbastre accéda aux postes les plus prestigieux: il fut organiste à Notre-Dame de Paris, claveciniste à la Cour de France et professeur de la reine Marie-Antoinette. Ce manuscrit, réalisé vers 1759, date de parution de l'édition originale, présente dans le titre quelques différences par rapport à l'édition. Le graveur, l'imprimeur et la profession de Madame de Caze dédicataire de l'ouvrage, n'y figurent pas; le Privilège du Roi n'y est pas mentionné et une seule des deux adresses de Barbastre est signalée. Il s'agit peut-être d'un manuscrit ayant précédé l'éditio, destiné à une diffusion privée. Sa calligraphie, particulièrement soignée, est proche de celle d'un manuscrit conservé à la Bibliothèque Nationale d'une œuvre de Balbastre jamais imprimée: "Recueil d'airs choisis de plusieurs opéras accomodés pour le clavecin" [vers 1760-70]. Aucun exemplaire de cette version manuscrite du Premier Livre de Pièces pour Clavecin de Balbastre ne semble répertorié. Elle manque au RISM et à toutes les bilbliothèques consultées, dont la BNF. Bel exemplaire en reliure de l'époque, portant sur le premier plat l'inscription en lettres dorées: "Me. Anne Aragon". [Attributes: Firs … [Click Below for Full Description]

Prevost [Rückentitel], Antoine-Francois Prévost d'Exiles, dit l'abbé
Amsterdam + Leipzig Arkstee & Merkus. MDCCLIX [1759]. 8 Bände in 4. Goldgeprägte, intarsierte Ganzmaroquinbändchen. Im Schuber. (14,5 x 9,5 cm) 12°. Vergl. "En francais dans le texte" p. 166, no. 144: "Son premier roman, les >>Mémoires et aventures d'un homme de qualité>Histoire du Chevalier Des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut<<. Cette brève histoire d'amour, à bien des égards scandaleuse, publiée anonymement en Hollande et condamnée au feu en France, s'èst imposée bientôt comme l'un de nos plus purs récits. Elle a connu, du vivant de Prévost, 23 éditions et au total, jusqu'à aujourd'hui, 250 éditions, ce qui en fait sans doute, avec les Aventures de Télémaque, le roman le plus constamment réédité de notre littérature." Antoine-Francois Prévost d'Exiles lebte von 1697 - 1763. Erstmals von 1728 bis 1731 erschienen, seitdem in vielen Auflagen wieder aufgelegt. Dies ist eine der früheren und selteneren, komplett von uns online in kaum einer Bibliothek nachweisbar, so besitzt z.B. Cambridge zwar die Teile 7 und 8 mit der Manon Lescaut, aber "wants vols 1-6". Anscheinend allein die walisische Nationalbibliothek in Aberystwyth besitzt eine komplette Reihe. Vier violette, geglättete Ganzmaroquinbändchen über vier Bünden mit höchst dekorativer Goldprägung auf Rücken und Deckeln, sowie inarsierten roten größeren und kleineren Lederstücken. Jeweils ein rotes, goldgeprägtes Titelrückenschild, sowie ein weiteres mit den Bandnummern. Kopfgoldschnitt, zweiseitig unbeschnitten. Opulente, die Deckelvergoldung aufgreifende Kanten-, Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung. Marmorierte Vorsätze. Auf der h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Heuß, Heinrich (Begr.); Königl. privilegirte Heußische Buchdruckerei Altona (Hrsg.)
Königl. privilegirte Heußische Buchdruckerei, Altona. Neuer fadengehefteter Ganzledereinband mit vier Schmuckbünden, goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, dreiseitigem Sprengschnitt und farbigen Vorsätzen. Schnitte und Papier etwas nachgedunkelt bzw. gebräunt, die Seiten etwas braunfleckig, mit kleinem Randknick oder mit kleinem Knickchen einer Ecke, die ersten Seiten mit abnehmendem Feuchtigkeitsfleck am Seitenrand, ansonsten rundum guter, altersgemäß nahezu sehr guter Erhaltungszustand. Das noch bis 1864 unter dänischer Verwaltung stehende Altona, welches am 23. August 1664 das Stadtrecht verliehen bekam, entwickelte sich zu einem der wichtigsten deutschen Pressezentren des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts. Katalysator dieser Entwicklung war die andauernde Rivalität zu Hamburg und die deutlich tolerantere Pressezensur in Altona. Hier gründete 1696 Heinrich Heuß den Altonaer „Relations-Courier" und benannte ihn vier Jahre später (1700) in „Reichs-Post-Reuter" um. Die Tagezeitung erschien unter diesem Titel bis zum Jahr 1789. Der vorliegende Band enthält alle 208 Nummern des "Reichs Post-Reuter" 1759 (erschien viermal pro Woche, immer Dienstag, Mittwoch, Freitag und Samstag), sowie alle 101 Nummern des "Beitrag zum Reichs Post-Reuter" (erschien zweimal wöchentlich, jeweils Montag und Donnerstag). Zusätzlich (zu den jeweiligen Erscheinungstagen) eingebunden sind die Nummern 1, 9 und 47 der "Wöchentliche gelehrte Nachrichten zum Hamburg. unpartheyischen Correspondenten" und die Nummern 19, 20, 70, 184, 185, 193, 195, 197, 201, 203, 204, 205 und 206 der "Staats- und Gelehrte Zeitung Des Hamburgi … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERKELEY George (-)
A La Haye, Gosse, 1759. In-8° piccolo (20 x 12), pp. (4)+330. Leg. piena pelle coeva, dorso ornato (piccoli guasti alle cerniere). Ex-libris araldico settecentesco non identificato. (2924) Prima traduzione francese dell'opera "An Essay towards preventing the Ruin of Great Britain" scritta nel 1721 dal celebre filosofo George Berkeley (nato in Irlanda da genitori inglesi nel 1685, morto a Oxford nel 1753), pastore anglicano, professore di greco ed ebraico al Trinity College di Dublino e dal 1834 vescovo di Cloyne. L'Università di California venne intitolata al suo nome per l'opera di alfabetizzazione degli Indiani e dei giovani coloni che egli propugnò durante il suo soggiorno a Rhode Island. Noto soprattutto per le sue teorie filosofiche, che lo contrapposero a Locke, si occupò nella seconda parte della sua vita anche di problemi politici, economici e sociali, e dei pericoli di un decadimento del sistema politico inglese. Nella presente opera difende tuttavia la sostanziale solidità del sistema economico dell'Inghilterra contro i suoi detrattori, che lo vedevano a rischio dopo i mutamenti avvenuti con la rivoluzione del 1688, sostenendo che il paese è ricco ed opulento, la banca florida, le tasse anche se più gravose che in passato non sono di ostacolo al progresso economico, il debito pubblico sotto controllo, anche se elevato, e che la Francia e le altre nazioni non sono comunque in condizione di attentare alla solidatà dell'Inghilterra, che è perfettamente in grado di difendersi.

ANTONI, Alessandro Vittorio Papacino D', ed altri
Torino, Stamperia Reale, 1759-90. Complessivamente 13 voll. in-8° (19 x 12). Leg. coeva in mezza pelle con titoli e tasselli colorati ai dorsi per 11 volumi; in piena pelle coeva con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso per i voll. 10-11. Ottimo es. (9424) Rara raccolta dei volumi costituenti nel loro complesso il corso completo degli studi per le Scuole Teoriche e Pratiche di Artiglieria e Fortificazione istituite presso il R. Arsenale di Torino; di essi fu il principale autore ed ispiratore Alessandro Vittorio Papacino d'Antoni (Villefranche, 1714-86), autentico rinnovatore della scienza militare in Piemonte ai tempi di Vittorio Amedeo III. Partito dalle ricerche nel campo della chimica e della metallurgia, affermatosi con il suo Esame della polvere del 1765, apprezzato e tradotto a livello europeo, integrò la ricerca teorica e pratica con la sperimentazione nell'Arsenale di Torino delle nuove tecnologie, formando una nuova classe di ufficiali artiglieri e genieri di elevatissima competenza, pari quanto meno alla scuola prussiana; rinnovò anche la scienza della fortificazione. "Dai suoi corsi cominciarono infatti ad uscire cadetti assai preparati e destinati ad incidere sia nella vita culturale, sia nella formazione di una oderna cultura tecnologica e scientifica, premessa indispensabile per lo sviluppo della protoindustria subalpina" (Ferroni, La Nuova Atlantide e i Lumi. Scienza e politica nel Piemomte di Vittorio Amedeo III,p. 59, ove l'argomento viene ampiamente sviluppato insieme col ruolo del suo protagonista). Si veda poi P.

Li Bai; Wang Qi
Bao hu lou, [China]. Sixteen woodblock-printed volumes, all on double leaves, bound in traditional Chinese style with thread, in a later blue folding cloth case. The leaves have all been carefully re-backed, apparently during the Republican era, so that wormholes and other minor areas of loss have been made sturdy; new exterior wrappers were also added to each volume. The blue case bulges somewhat with the thickness of the volumes contained within. While one of the prefaces is dated to the 23rd year of Qianlong, 1758, a date cited for some listings in OCLC, two other prefaces and the last page of the work are dated to the jimao year of Qianlong, or 1759. This set of blocks may have been used for a number of years to print new copies as called for, without any indication of the actual date of printing. The interior title page, which gives the title "Li Qinglian quan ji ji zhu," states that it was printed from the woodblocks stored at Bao hu lou. An important edition of the works of Li Bai, the Tang dynasty poet, also known in English as Li Po. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

First State of a Legendary Colonial American Town View One of the rarest and most important early American engravings, Thomas Johnston's view of Quebec is "the most important engraved view of that city, as well as the earliest executed by an American" (Deak).

Venegas Miguel
For James Rivington and James Fletcher, 1759. 2 volumes. First Edition in English and the first translation of this work out of Spanish. With a large folding map of California based on the Jesuit map and eight illustrations on four copper-engraved plates. Note that very often, there are only 2 copper plates and occasionally even fewer found in copies of the book. 8vo (197mm x 122mm ), in contemporary bindings of full polished calf, all boards with a double ruled gilt fillet borders, spines with raised bands framed by double ruled gilt lines, each spine with maroon morocco label lettered in gilt in one compartment. [20], 455; [8], 387 pp. A fine clean and pleasing copy of this highly important work. The rare contemporary bindings in especially nice condition, the large folding map in good order with only some very expert restoration to a closed tear, not affecting the image, a bit of the typical mellowing to the paper caused by time, an unpressed and crisp copy. THE VERY SCARCE FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH, preceding the French and German translations. USUALLY THIS WORK IS FOUND WITH TWO PLATES, BUT OCCASIONALLY A COPY WILL HAVE FOUR AS IN THIS EXAMPLE. A very uncommon book in such nice condition and in original contemporary bindings with the extra plates as noted by Cowan I, 237-238: "these four plates appear to have been issued with but a few copies of the work, as two is the number usually found." Considered by Cowan to be "the foundation of a library of California," this work is the most extensive account of Lower California of its period. Concluded in Mexico in 1739, the No … [Click Below for Full Description]
