        Theorie de l'Impot. [Bound with:] [PESSELIER, Charles.] Doutes proposés à l'Auteur de la Théorie de l'Impôt.

      No place: No printer, 1760-61 - 2 works bound together in 1 volume, quarto (255 x 193 mm). Contemporary French mottled calf, spine decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Housed in a brown morocco backed bookform folding case. Engraved armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Lower edge a little rubbed, with corners worn, very occasional spotting. Excellent copies. First edition of each work. The Théorie de l'Impôt is a spirited and able attack upon the financial administration of France, and especially upon the "fermiers généraux", whom Mirabeau regarded as parasites preying upon the vitals of the nation. The work highlights the problems and injustices of the French system of taxation, and added fuel to the fire of the coming revolution. The king disapproved of the work; Mirabeau was imprisoned on 16 December 1760, but through the efforts of Madame de Pompadour and others, was released on Christmas Eve, under orders to leave Paris for his estate at Bignon. The work proposes a reorganization of financial administrative machinery, the abolition of the "Fermes", a reduction in the taxation upon salt, with the object of increasing the total yield, and a special tax upon tobacco farms. The domaine, the post, and the mint were to be further sources of revenue. The author ranks as one of the earliest important writers on taxation. Higgs notes that the book is "of real importance in the history of financial theory" (The Physiocrats, p. 57). Pesselier was one of the most forceful critics of the physiocrats, and he here attacks Mirabeau's Théorie de l'impôt, published the previous year. The present work is notable, however, for its terse affirmation of the characteristically physiocratic doctrine that agriculture holds a privileged place in the economic system; of the products of the soil Pesselier writes, "Elles procurent un profit net et durable puisqu'elles sont à l'abri de l'imitation".

        Demonstrationum Anatomico-Pathlogicarum liber primus, continens brachii humani fabricam et morbos. [Bound with:] Demonstrationum Anatomico-Pathlogicarum liber secundus, continens pelvis humanae fabricam et morb

      . Amstelaedami: apud Joann. Schreuder et Petrum Mortier Juniorem, 1760-1762, Imp.-Folio, VI, 22 pp.; II; VI (2), 22, II pp., 8 Kupferstichtafeln, Halbleinenband d.Zt; Titel mit altem hs. Besitzvermerk "ex libirs Jos. Barth".*; feines Epxl.. FIRST EDITION, complete with both parts. The eight plates, the largest anatomical drawings in a book by Peter (Petrus) Camper (1722-1789), depict almost life-size the arm, the shoulder, the hand, and the pelvis, including "Camper's chiasma", and represent Camper's most important contribution to surgical anatomy. - - "His most considerable scientific work in anatomy is 'Demonstrationum anatomico-pathologicarum. Liber primus continens brachii humani fabricam et morbos', Amsterdam, J. Schreuder and P. Mortier Jr., 1760. These very large plates on the upper limb were followed by a second volume, on the pelvis, published in 1762. The plates, some of which had accompanying outline diagrams, were engraved by Jacob von der Schley (1751-1779) from Camper's own drawings. There were no more in this projected series, but Camper's pupil, S. T. Soemmerring, after Camper's death, published 'lcones herniarum.' Camper's plates for these anatomical and pathological books take their place alongside the illustrations prepared by the artists Lairesse and Wanderlaar for the anatomists Bidloo and Albinus. Together the achievements of these atlases represent, both scientifically and aesthetically, a high point of Dutch civilization in the eighteenth century." K. Roberts and J.D.W. Tomlinson, The Fabric of the Body (1992), pp.340-343. - - " In his atlas, he describes the "chiasma" indicating the intersections of the superficial and deep flexor tendons, which are essential for the gripping function of the hand. Camper's anatomical studies and elaborate illustrations contributed to a better understanding of the anatomy and pathology of the arm" Frank F.A.

(2014) on numerous pages. - - *) Joseph Barth (1746-1818) was to gain renown in ophthalmologic practice and to occupy the first Chair of Ophthalmology in Europe. His appointment to the post by the Empress Maria Theresa of Austria was made in consideration of his "special skill in eye diseases as well as his aptitude in finer anatomy". The professorship occupied by Barth remained the leader in ophthalmology with the subsequent professorship being instituted in Berlin only in 1866. - He was also a clinical teacher and was responsible for the training of several renowned physicians, notably Joseph Ehrenritter, Johann Adam Schmidt, Georg Joseph Beer, Georg Prochaska, ... and he established an Anatomical Museum that housed an assembly of 1576 specimens, some prepared by Barth himself. - - Heirs of Hippocrates No.951; Boyes, On the Shoulders of Giants, p. 12; also pp. 13-14).

DSB. DUHAMEL DU MONCEAU, Henri-Louis, (1700-1782). His major interest, and contribution to technology and society, was in agriculture. The first half of the eighteenth century had witnessed the beginning of a technological renaissance in agriculture, chiefly in England, where it was notably celebrated in the writings of Jethro Tull, whose major work, Horse-Hoeing Husbandry, was published in 1733. Although the ideas of Tull and Duhamel enjoyed substantial popularity among a progressive group of French landowners, the opposition - either in the form of active criticism or in the passive inertia of an almost medieval agrarian society - was too strong for France to enjoy the rapid agricultural changes which occurred in England and, shortly after, in Scotland. However, enough progress was made for Duhamel to receive recognition for his pioneering work during his lifetime. (DSB). .

[6], iv, 151, [5], xliv pp. 1771 book lots, unpriced + 247 art lots, all prices and some buyer's names in contemporary MS. With two states of the portrait by Cochin, one "aux armes," the other with the name of the former owner. Bound in 19th-century French half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, full-gilt spine, lettered and dated, made marbled endpapers, top edge painted vermilion, green silk bookmark, extremities trifle rubbed, nice copy with many deckles preserved. The sale of books took place 25 June to 12 July, 1760; the art on 24 November 1760 (some sources emend this to 9-17 February, 1761). This fine copy belonged to the great painter and Villeneuve's own art curator Jean-Baptiste Descamps (1714-1791), printed on superior paper and containing two states of the Villeneuve's portrait by Watelet after Cochin. This is the two-part sale catalogue of the important collection of Claude Alexandre de Villeneuve, Comte de Vence, Lieutenant-Général des Armées du Roy, commandant à la Rochelle, & Colonel du Régiment Royal-Corse. The first component of the catalogue is the sale of the Library, the second being the sale of a selection of the most significant works of art (here with all the prices realized in contemporary MS). The auctioneer divided the books into two principal groups: A). History; B). everything else (the former outnumbers the latter by two to one). Of especial interest to Villeneuve was the study of Provence: there are 225 titles covering its geography, history, government, law, and literature, as well as genealogies of illustrious Provençois. Villeneuve's library has been recently described as one of the most important in France at that time (SOURCE: François Moureau, "La plume et le plomb: espaces de l'imprimé et du manuscrit au siècle des Lumières," 2006). Not in North, Grolier Club; not in Taylor; not in Blogie. Friedhelm Beckmann, "Franzosische Privatbibliotheken," p. 125 (in: Archiv fur Geschichte des Buchwesens, XXXI, 1988). Villeneuve's collection of paintings, drawings and prints is justly considered to be among the foremost of his day, selected with discernment by J.-B. Descamps, the author of the influential "La Vie des peintres flamands, allemands et hollandaise" (1753-1763), for which see especially Vol. II, p. 165 ("Le Cabinet de M. Le Comte de Vence"). The sale included major masterpieces by non-French artists such as Maes, Steenwyck the Elder, Breughel the Elder, and Rembrandt. Only 5% of the lots failed to sell. We note with interest the unsold (?) lot 179, an ink drawing of Villeneuve by Charles-Nicolas Cochin -- almost certainly the same drawing used to cut the engraved portrait found at the beginning of the volume. REFERENCE: Lugt 1121. The Bibliotheca Bibliographica Breslaueriana Sammelband, containing the two Villeneuve catalogues and four others (all but one priced), realized $2,640 eight years ago (Christie's New York, 23 March 2005, lot 466). This is the only other copy we've seen on the market. PROVENANCE: "Descamps 1760" (on title page) -- Louis Clement de Ris (1820-1882), purchased by him in 1864. Ris invariably employed the title "Comte" although as a child he was adopted and the title was not passed on to him. He became a great art collector and served as a Conservateur at the Louvre and subsequently at Versailles.

        Du Culte Des Dieux Fetiches, Ou Parallele De L'ancienne Religion De L'egypte Avec La Religion Actuelle De Nigritie

      Anon, 1760-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. 1st ed. Full contemporary mottled calf. 5 raised bands. Solid binding. Negligible split along bottom-most edges spine. All edges red. Marbled end pages. Generally clean, unmarked pages. Perforated stamp on title page. 285 pages. 17 cm. French Enlightenment Philosophy. An important work in sociology, anthropology and comparative religion. In this work de Brosses introduced the concept of fetishism in religious practice worshiping animals and objects. "De Brosses was a pioneer of the science of comparative religion. In his memoir Du culte des dieux fétiches., reprinted in the Encyclopédie [Encyclopedie methodique], he combated the then prevailing tendency to interpret ancient mythologies and religious systems, notably that of Egypt, as profound symbolism and upheld the thesis that ancient Egyptian religion did not differ substantially from the primitive cults of native Africa. The work, which the French Academy refused to print in its transactions and which gave rise to violent attacks, anticipates the modern anthropological method of approach to the history of religions." (Robert Briffault, Encyclopedia of Social Sciences) Brunet I 1277. A side note: Karl Marx read de Brosses work in German. De Brosses's work had significant impact on Marx's intellectual consideration of religion. See Roland Boer's Marxism and Religion: A Complete and Annotated Bibliography for additional references.

Villeneuve's library has been recently described as one of the most important in France at that time (SOURCE: François Moureau, "La plume et le plomb: espaces de l'imprimé et du manuscrit au siècle des Lumières," 2006). Not in North, Grolier Club; not in Taylor; not in Blogie. Friedhelm Beckmann, "Franzosische Privatbibliotheken," p. 125 (in: Archiv fur Geschichte des Buchwesens, XXXI, 1988). Villeneuve's collection of paintings, drawings and prints is justly considered to be among the foremost of his day, selected with discernment by J.-B. Descamps, the author of the influential "La Vie des peintres flamands, allemands et hollandaise" (1753-1763), for which see especially Vol. II, p. 165 ("Le Cabinet de M. Le Comte de Vence"). The sale included major masterpieces by non-French artists such as Maes, Steenwyck the Elder, Breughel the Elder, and Rembrandt. Only 5% of the lots failed to sell. We note with interest the unsold (?) lot 179, an ink drawing of Villeneuve by Charles-Nicolas Cochin -- almost certainly the same drawing used to cut the engraved portrait found at the beginning of the volume. REFERENCE: Lugt 1121. The Bibliotheca Bibliographica Breslaueriana Sammelband, containing the two Villeneuve catalogues and four others (all but one priced), realized $2,640 eight years ago (Christie's New York, 23 March 2005, lot 466). This is the only other copy we've seen on the market. PROVENANCE: "Descamps 1760" (on title page) -- Louis Clement de Ris (1820-1882), purchased by him in 1864. Ris invariably employed the title "Comte" although as a child he was adopted and the title was not passed on to him. He became a great art collector and served as a Conservateur at the Louvre and subsequently at Versailles.

        Du Culte Des Dieux Fetiches, Ou Parallele De L'ancienne Religion De L'egypte Avec La Religion Actuelle De Nigritie

      Anon 1760 - 1st ed. Full contemporary mottled calf. 5 raised bands. Solid binding. Negligible split along bottom-most edges spine. All edges red. Marbled end pages. Generally clean, unmarked pages. Perforated stamp on title page. 285 pages. 17 cm. French Enlightenment Philosophy. An important work in sociology, anthropology and comparative religion. In this work de Brosses introduced the concept of fetishism in religious practice worshiping animals and objects. "De Brosses was a pioneer of the science of comparative religion. In his memoir Du culte des dieux fétiches., reprinted in the Encyclopédie [Encyclopedie methodique], he combated the then prevailing tendency to interpret ancient mythologies and religious systems, notably that of Egypt, as profound symbolism and upheld the thesis that ancient Egyptian religion did not differ substantially from the primitive cults of native Africa. The work, which the French Academy refused to print in its transactions and which gave rise to violent attacks, anticipates the modern anthropological method of approach to the history of religions." (Robert Briffault, Encyclopedia of Social Sciences) Brunet I 1277. A side note: Karl Marx read de Brosses work in German. De Brosses's work had significant impact on Marx's intellectual consideration of religion. See Roland Boer's Marxism and Religion: A Complete and Annotated Bibliography for additional references.

        Studi di Pittura

      1760. PIAZZETTA, Giambattista. Studi di Pittura già dissegnati da Giambatista Piazzetta ed ora con l'intaglio di Marco Pitteri. [6], 11, [3] ff. With an additional engraved title from the French edition of 1764. Illustrated with an engraved title-page vignette, head- and tailpieces, one of the latter with an etched self-portrait of Piazzetta dated 1738, plus 48 engraved plates in pairs numbered I-XXIV after drawings by Piazzetta. Oblong folio, 308 x 425 mm, contemporary Italian quarter calf over speckled paper boards. Venice: Giambattista Albrizzi, 1760. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of Piazzetta's drawing manual, one of the finest Venetian illustrated books of the Settecento, which contains the only surviving etching by the master himself, a self-portrait executed in 1738, and numerous engravings based on Piazzetta's drawings. The Studi di pittura was conceived by Piazzetta's friend and publisher, Giambattista Albrizzi, as an instructional manual for aspiring artists. The Piazzetta drawings were executed specifically for this book and were intended to illustrate the artistic theories espoused by the emerging Venetian Academy, as of 1750 under the direction of Piazzetta himself. Piazzetta produced twenty-four drawings for the Studi di pittura at Albrizzi's request shortly before the painter's death, in 1754. Albrizzi in turn commissioned two of Italy's finest engravers, Francesco Bartolozzi and Marco Pitteri, to reproduce Piazzetta's twenty-four drawings in a distinctive, prescribed engraving style; a total of forty-eight sheets resulted, i.e., two prints for each of Piazzetta's studies. The two complementary sets of engravings were interleaved in the finished Studi di pittura, affording the student two contrasting interpretations of Piazzetta's drawings. Bartolozzi's spare and linear prints are intended to highlight the character of Piazzetta's mastery of outline drawing; Pitteri's interpretations, on the other hand, reproduce the dramatic chiaroscuro effects intending to show Piazzetta's skill in delineating three dimensional form. The subject matter covers a range of themes addressed by eighteenth-century academies of art, where students trained first by copying plaster casts and then later drawing nudes from life. A series of multiple studies illustrate hands, feet, ears and the like seen from five or six points of view on each sheet. Larger views of male and female torsos and reclining nudes follow, along with images of saints, infants, and costumes, all themes a Venetian student of painting was expected to master. Piazzetta's love of the human form is evident and ubiquitous in all of these delicate engravings. Accompanying the Piazzetta illustrations are fifteen chapters of text considering the principles of artistic practice. Albrizzi borrowed chapters from the Bolognese academician Gian-Pietro Cavazzoni Zannotti's Alcuni avvertimenti per lo incamminamento di un giovane alla pittura. Zannotti's text advises aspiring artists how to select a teacher (maestro) and then addresses the formal properties of works of art, i.e., colour, symmetry, anatomy, perspective, gesture, and costume. Students are encouraged to examine the practice and opinions of important masters like Vasari, Leonardo, Raphael, Carracci, and Bassano and are advised to copy directly from their works. The advice offered by the Studi di pittura was apparently taken quite seriously, for the volume is said to have had "grande importanza per i giovani allievi dell'Accademia" (Precerutti-Garberi). "The Studi di pittura also contains a short but reliable biography of Piazzetta by Albrizzi himself. Embedded in the decorative tailpiece of the Studi is a small etching dated 1738 and apparently the only one that Piazzetta ever made that may be a self-portrait in Rembrandt's manner" (Alice Binion). A few instances of pale spotting, extremities of paperboards with repairs; overall in fine original condition. PROVENANCE: Arthur and Charlotte Vershbow, with their ex-libris.

Pierre and engraved by Watelet, 10 elegant tailpieces- 4 by Marguerite Lecomte and 5 by Pierre all etched by Watelet, and two full-page line engravings of Antinoüs and Venus de Medicis by Pierre and etched by Watelet. 12mo., 158 x 89 mm, elegantly bound in near-contemporary English vertical straight-grained morocco, Greek key border ornaments, a.e.g. Paris: Guerin et Delatour, 1760. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, the octavo edition, issued simultaneously in a quarto format. An elegant French treatise on the art of painting illustrated with a total of 27 images either etched or engraved by the author Claude-Henri Watelet. The portraits include: Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, Titian, Coreggio, Tintoretto, etc. The French painter Watelet (1718-1786) was a member of the famously wealthy Fermiers Généraux, which allowed him to pursue his interests as an amateur painter, a respected etcher, a writer on the arts and a connoisseur of gardens. As a close friend of Francois Boucher, Hubert Robert and Madame de Pompadour, Watelet was well-positioned to write with some insight on the prevalent theories of painting and art during the Ancien Regime. Watelet's book was divided into two parts: the first a long prose poem on the art of painting, containing sections on design, colour, picturesque painting, and poetic invention. The second part offers contemporary reflections of proportions, painting of the human figure, the movement of figures, aspects of beauty, the harmony of light and colours, the expression of the passions, etc.. He was a contributor to the Diderot Encyclopédie on painting and engraving; he an honorary associate of the Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture, and in 1760 he was elected to the Académie française after the publication of his L'Art de peindre. Watelet was also an early patron of Greuze. who painted the famous portrait of Watelet dressed in silver-coloured silk, with an artist's calipers in hand facing a bronze reduction of the Venus de' Medici on his table (see plate #2 page 72 of this volume).

        Poésies de M. Haller

      New edition retouched and enhanced. Full blond calf granita time. Back smooth decorated with flower boxes and golden jewels, coins title and volume numbers garnet and tan morocco. Cuts outlined a golden net. All marbled. Bookplate exceptional pen, library Joseph-Ignace Guillotin guards on each volume. Dr. Joseph Ignace Guillotin is an heir of the Enlightenment, a member of the famous Masonic Lodge of the Nine Sisters. He makes friends with Benjamin Franklin, Lavoisier, Bailly, Buffon or Lacepede, and writers and artists such as Condorcet, Voltaire, Restif de la Bretonne and Moreau Le Jeune. In his dressing Guillotin also met his future father-Antoine-Claude Saugrain, printer and bookseller soon appointed chief librarian of the Arsenal by the Comte d'Artois. Great scholar, Guillotin is also a major player in the French Revolution from its outset. Initiator in 1788 of the Petition of six bodies, claiming the vote by poll and not least the States-General, it is also the one who led the members in the room of the Tennis Court. In April 1789, he wrote with Bailly Booklet grievances of the Third Estate of Paris which established the first version of Human Homme.La Criminal Law Reform shall submit it to the Assembly the same philanthropic concern for equality with men before the law: A single sentence regardless of the rank of the criminal; lack of consequences for his family; non-forfeiture of the convicted; and especially one type of execution "by the effect of a simple mechanism. ".The Guillotine, inspired by vintage prints and improved by Dr. Antoine Louis machinery, is an instrument that is supposed to have killed painlessly and replace execution of the former regime's main modes: decapitation by ax saber or sword, hanging and roue.Or if book of poetry Haller is a precious relic of the library near the great scientists and artists of the time humanist, it also allows us to suppose Guillotin knowledge on medical issues raised by his invention.En Indeed, Albrecht von Haller is not only a poet. It is also an anatomist and physiologist renowned, best known for his research on irritability, highlighting the persistence of movements in parts of the body. "Haller wondered how the life of an animal is still possible after removal of the brain and reported number of observations relating to insects, cold-blooded quadrupeds (...) that remain for a few days able to walk and even to mate" (see Canguilhem, Formation of the concept of reflex the eighteenth and eighteenth centuries) .OR this reflection is crucial in the process of Guillotin, since mechanization is primarily intended to end the suffering caused by the executions. If from 1752, Dr. Antoine Louis participated in the dispute over the "signs of death" we have no record of interest in the issue Guillotin. The presence of a work of Haller in Guillotin allows us to assume that the doctor philanthropist was fully aware of the scientific debate on the basic question of the immediacy of death due to the removal of the head. So knowingly uttered as Guillotin before the Assembly this sentence (the unfortunate statement earned him a bad reputation), "With my machine, I'll blow your head with a wink, and you do not suffer. Mechanical falls like lightning, head flies, blood gushes, man is no more. " Aux dépens de la société Berne 1760 3 vol. petit in-8 (10,5x17cm) viij ; 9-207 pp. (1) et 196pp. et 254pp. relié

        STUDI DI PITTURA GIA? DISEGNATI DA GIAMBATISTA PIAZZETTA ED ORA CON L?INTAGLIO DI MARCO PITTERI. Pubblicati a spese di Giambatista Albrizzi, sotto gli auspicj di Sua Eccellenza Carlo Conte, e Signore de Firmian.

      In - 4 p. oblungo (mm. 307x412), mz. pelle coeva, filetti e tit. oro al dorso, antiporta figur. con ritratto, frontespizio inciso in rosso e nero con vignetta, 18 cc. di testo, ornato da 3 pregevoli grandi capilettera figurati, 1 testata alle armi e 2 finali (uno con il celebre ritratto inciso dal Piazzetta stesso, datato 1738); con 48 tavole numerate I - XLVIII, il tutto inc. in rame. La raccolta è introdotta da ?Memorie intorno alla vita di G. Piazzetta? (scritte dall?Albrizzi) e da alcuni avvertimenti per ?lo incamminamento di un giovane alla pittura? del bolognese Gian - Pietro Cavazzoni Zannotti. In alcuni esemplari si può trovare allegata la lista degli associati. "Prima edizione" postuma, voluta da Giovan Battista Albrizzi (1698 - 1777). L?attività del celebre pittore veneziano Piazzetta (1682 - 1754) negli ultimi vent?anni di vita si era concentrata sulla produzione di disegni, molti dei quali preparati per edizioni divenute celeberrime, come la "Gerusalemme Liberata", uscite dai torchi del grande amico Albrizzi. L?editore veneziano aveva anche chiesto all?artista di fornirgli una serie di disegni per una edizione ad uso degli amanti della pittura. A sei anni dalla morte del Piazzetta uscì dunque questo libro per il quale l?Albrizzi si avvalse della collaborazione di due valenti incisori: Alvise Pitteri (1702 - 1786) e Francesco Bartolozzi (1728 - 1815). Cfr. Morazzoni, p. 129: ?Le chiare squillanti tavole degli "Studi di pittura" hanno una freschezza inarrivabile e una gaiezza veramente comunicativa, e ben si comprende come questo "album" nella Veneta Pubblica Accademia, appena stampato, venisse imposto agli scolari come testo obbligatorio di studio. Cfr. anche Knox ?G.B. Piazzetta? (Neri Pozza, 1983), pp. 81 / 82: ?Ai fini didattici l?Albrizzi fece incidere i disegni a contorno appena ombreggiato dal Bartolozzi (ma il suo nome appare soltanto nella tarda ristampa che ne fece Teodoro Viero) e con perfetta, finita ombreggiatura, dal Pitteri: tutti i soggetti sono ripetuti due volte.. Dell?opera si conoscono più stati. Nel primo - che è il più raro - i nudi maschili sono integrali. Nel secondo stato appaiono aggiunte le foglie di fico. In questi due stati le tavole sono numerate da I a XXIV. Vi è poi un?ediz. con numerazione unica e continua da I a XLVIII. L?omaggio al Piazzetta non sarebbe stato completo se l?Albrizzi non avesse ricordato, in pagine fondamentali per la conoscenza dell?artista, la figura del suo "grande e cordiale amico", dell?artista difficile che "prefissa si era per guida l?idea della perfezione"; e a suggello delle sue righe l?editore poneva l?unica acquaforte che abbia fatto il Piazzetta? - Schlosser, p. 561 - Cicognara,345 - Cicogna,4657. Con dediche ms., tracce d?uso e qualche lieve alone marginale ma certamente un buon esemplare.

Bowles at his shop next by Chapter House in St. Pauls Ch-Yard London". The prelims and pages 1-4 inclusive are, sadly, lacking, making it difficult to definitely identify which this is of the several editions published between 1720 and 1764, although it does include the County maps. The maps have not been coloured, the pages appear to be untrimmed, and minor chipping of the edges of a few pages has been professionally repaired. The spine and covers appear to be an early rebinding, with the original (?) tooled leather covers laid on. The end papers are quite new. Overall, a nice collectible copy.
