      Isaak Tirion, Amsterdam, Utrecht 1760 - FIRST EDITION, first printing. Text in Dutch. 3 volumes. 1760, 1765, 1767. Complete set. The volumes have been professionally rebacked retaining original red and black morocco labels. There are five raised bands with gilt ruling and tooled design to the spine the boards are original and show the wear you would expect of books this age. Each book has the original green ribbon bookmark. Volume 1: Faded gilt title on spine; Some light soiling to end pages up to title page due to finger-prints; very light, very occasional foxing. Volume 2: Cracked label of volume number on spine; Front cover has 3 medium sized scratches. Volume 3: Repaired crack to rear board. It does not affect the binding and is only unsightly; Occasional light tanning. This is a famous 3 part set which contains a description and history of Amsterdam. It includes 78 plates, portraits, and maps. The Author, Jan Wagenaar, was the first historian to have access to the municipal archives, on which he based much of his book. Jan Wagenaar (Amsterdam, 28 oktober 1709 - Amsterdam, 1 maart 1773) is een Nederlands geschiedschrijver. Jan Wagenaar was de zoon van een schoenmaker. Klerk geworden op een koopmanskantoor, wijdde hij zijn vrije tijd aan de bestudering der natuurkunde. Op uitnodiging van de uitgever schreef hij De Tegenwoordige Staat van Utrecht. Hierdoor kreeg hij aardigheid in de beoefening der Vaderlandse Geschiedenis. In 1749 verscheen van hem het eerste deel der Vaderlandsche Historie, die in 1759 was gevorderd tot het twintigste deel. Eerst bij dit deel gaf Wagenaar zich als de schrijver op, hoewel men reeds lang vermoedde, dat hij de auteur was. De regering van Amsterdam benoemde hem in 1756 tot stadhistorieschrijver, waarvoor hem toegang in de archieven werd gegeven. In 1768 verschijnt dan AMSTERDAM, IN ZYNE OPKOMST, AANWAS, GESCHIEDENISSEN, VOORREGTEN, KOOPHANDEL, GEBOUWEN, KERKENSTAAT, SCHOOLEN, SCHUTTERYE, GILDEN EN REGEERINGE, etc. (13 delen). In zijn werken maakt Wagenaar gebruik van allerlei bronnen geeft hij naast politieke geschiedenis, ook kerkgeschiedenis en economische geschiedenis weer. Zijn voorstelling is niet onpartijdig, vooral Staatsgezinden worden door hem verdedigd. Bilderdijk bestreed zijn geschiedopvatting.

Als einzige zu Lebzeiten veröffentlichte seiner Schriften war diese Abhandlung aufgrund ihrer antiklerikalen Haltung heftig umstritten. Die Vorrede Gottscheds, der sich als Vermittler der franz. Aufklärer verstand, entbehrt nicht der Pikanterie. Als zuständiger Bücherzensor im Dienste des sächsischen Kurfürsten August III. hatte Gottsched nämlich die Aufgabe antiklerikale Texte schlicht zu verbieten. Er löste das Problem, indem er im Vorwort über etwaig anstößige Stellen des Werks aufklärte, diese aber beließ. - Einbandrücken restauriert, Titelblatt mit Besitzervermerk, Exemplar stellenweise leicht wasser- und stockfleckig, insgesamt gut erhalten. - Smith E.15; Fromm 12305; Ziegenfuß I 503.

        Veduta dell' Arco di Costantino, e dell Anfiteatro Flavio detto il Colosseo

      Rome 1760 - Hind 56 (1st state)John Wilton-Ely plate 152From the important series "Veduta de Roma" View of the Arch of Constantine and the Flavian Amphitheater, called the Coleosseum" (John Wilton-Ely)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etchi

        Lettres et Memoires Pour servir a L'histoire Naturelle, Civile et Politique Du Cap Breton, Depuis Son Etablissment Jusqu'a La Reprise De Cette Isle Par Les Anglois En 1758.

      Pierre grosse and Jean Nourse, The Hague and London 1760 - 12mo., (6 4/8 x 4 inches). Half-title. Contemporary French mottled calf, spine in six compartments with five raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in one, the others decorated with small floral tools (head of the spine chipped with minor loss and lower joint just starting, corners worn with minor loss). First Edition of "One of the few reliable published sources.about the French in Acadia during the 18th century"(DCB). "Pichon came to Canada from France in 1751 as secretary (till 1753) to the governor of Cape Breton (Jean-Louis de Raymond); he served in the vicinity till 1758.(TPL). "Pichon's work, composed in the form of letters written from Louisbourg, beginning in 1752 and ending with the capitulation of that fortress to the English in 1758, constitutes one of the few reliable published sources about the French in Acadia during the 18th century"(DCB). The letters provide a clear and accurate description of Ile Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island), the trade with New England, the manners and customs of the Micmac and Malecite Indians, the French government in Louisbourg, military events and the causes of the war. One of Pichon's major responsibilities during his brief appointment was preparing the governor's reports to France, a task which allowed him to gather much valuable information he was to use in the writing of this book. Sent to Fort Beausejour (Chignecto), in 1753 he succumbed to the bribes of the commanding officer at Fort Lawrence, Captain George Scott and for more than a year engaged in espionage and subterfuge against the French under the assumed name Tyrell. The information he sold to Scott apparently enabled Col. Robert Monckton to capture the French fort at Chignecto in 1755. After some time spent as a prisoner of war, Pichon retired to England, where he was awarded a pension. Lande 710; Sabin 62610; Staton & Tremaine/TPL 274.

Some rubbing to extremities, plates XIII & XV significantly stained, ptherwise both text and plates are clean, and sound; overall, a fresh copy. Nissen 545; Raphael, Sylva, #34 . Important work on the cultivation of trees by this prolific 18th-century polymath abd savant (1700-1782), member of the Royal Academy, who published over 100 separate during his prolific lifetime, on a wife range of subjects which engaged his passions for chemistry, botany, agronomy and naval architecture. His most important contribution to agriculture was perhaps his introduction of the methods of cultivation of Jethro Tull into France, with his publication in of TRAITÉ DE LA CULTURE DES TERRES (1750-1761). But Duhamel was above all a great advocate of the Tree in France, and his numerous works on the cultivations of trees and shrubs, as well as forests and forest maintenance, are mong his most important contributions. Previous to this work, Duhamel had published his TRAITÉ DES ARBRES ET ARBUSTES QUI SE CULTIVENT EN FRANCE (1755); and LA PHYSIQUE DES ARBRES (1758). This continuation of "notre travail sur les Forêts," the author says in his Preface, is, in this case, "purement pratique"; and his aim to place simplified methods of cultivation "within the reach of all sorts of readers." He divides his work into six books: (1) on terrain, exposure, climate, choice on trees; (2) Different methods of propagating trees; (3) Care of young trees; (4) Transplanting; (5) Forests; (6) Maintenance of Woods and Revitalization of damaged Forests. illustrated by the fine line engravings, this is indeed the work Duhamel most intended for a practical audience

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). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Die edle Fechtkunst in vollendeter Ausführung. 1750 verfasste Diderot einen in ganz Europa verschickten Prospekt, in dem er Interessenten zur Subskription der Encyclopédie aufrief. 1751 erschienen die beiden ersten Bände der «Encyclopédie.». Der buchhändlerische Erfolg des Werkes war enorm, doch die Jesuiten und die Sorbonne diagnostizierten eine unchristliche Tendenz und erwirkten beim königlichen Kronrat ein Verbot. Da aber Madame de Pompadour (die Mätresse von Ludwig XV.), einige Minister, viele einflussreiche Freimaurer und der Chefzensor Malesherbes auf der Seite der Encyclopédisten standen, konnten 1753?1756 trotz des Verbots vier weitere Bände erscheinen.Danach jedoch wuchs der Druck der Gegner. 1758 wurde das Verbot erneuert, 1759 setzte Papst Clemens XIII. das Werk auf den Index. Inzwischen hatte aber die Regierung die Deviseneinnahmen schätzen gelernt, die trotz des Siebenjährigen Krieges (1756?1763) durch den Verkauf der Encyclopédie aus ganz Europa hereinkamen, und man ermutigte Diderot unter der Hand zum Weitermachen. Er brachte die letzten zehn Bände samt fünf Bänden Abbildungen heraus (1765). 1100 gr. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Veduta interna della Chiesa della Madonna degli Angeli detta della Certosa, che anticamente era la principal sala delle Terme di Diocleziano.

      Interior of the Church of Our Lady of the Angels called the Charterhouse, which was once the principal room of the Baths of Diocletian. Copperprint. Rome 1760. 50x81 cm. (Vidute de Roma). Printed on strong paper.. When Piranesi arrived in Rome in the year 1740 he was instantly impressed by the splendour of the antique ruins in the ancient city. For almost a year he was an apprentice in the studio of Guiseppe Vasi, his later colleague and rival, where he learned the art of engraving copper plates. He began his extremely successful career depicting Rome's architectural gems (antique and contemporary) on extra large-scale single sheets: the famous "Vedute di Roma" (Views of Rome). Piranesi was an obsessed artist. Relentlessly he added plates, sometimes variations of former ones, to the collection, until, at the end of his life, there was a total of 135 views showing the majesty and the splendour of the once powerful capital of the Roman empire.

      Berlin, bey Christian Friedrich Voß 1760 - 8°. Titel, VIII,(3-) 172 S. . Halblederband mit Rückenschild und &#150;vergoldung (G.v.Hahn). Erste Ausgabe (Muncker S.393 u. 498; Goedeke IV/I,386,88). - Titel von 1790 leicht gebräunt, vereinzelt leicht fleckig. Auf festem Schreibpapier. Der Titel von 1760, ist an den Anfang gebunden. &#132;Lessing war . von jeher gewohnt, seine Arbeiten erst während ihres Abdrucks zu vollenden, und diesen schon bei einigem, oft nur geringem Vorrathe von Handschrift anfangen zu lassen.&#147; (Eschenburg, S.V). Sophokles gehört zu denen seiner Werke, die, obwohl der Druck schon weit fortgeschritten war, zu seinen Lebzeiten nicht vollendet wurden. Lessing hatte diesen Dichter &#132;lieb gewonnen&#147; (S.4) und das Fehlen eines Artikels zu Sophokles in BAYLEs kritischem Wörterbuch als unverzeihlich beklagte. Sein Verleger Voß hatte bereits Titel, der oft fehlt, und Text bis einschließlich S.112 (Bögen A &#150; G) drucken lassen, als Lessing die Arbeit abbrach. &#132;Was für ein Hinderniß es eigentlich gewesen sey, welches die Fortsetzung dieses Abdrucks, oder vielmehr die weitere Ausarbeitung des Werkes selbst unterbrach, weiß ich nicht mit Gewißheit anzugeben. Vermuthlich war es Lessing&#146;s Entfernung von Berlin, der um diese Zeit nach Breslau zu dem preussischen General Tauenzien gieng . Sein Sophokles sollte aus vier Büchern bestehen, die wahrscheinlich auch eben so viel Bände gefüllt haben würden. Aber auch hier ist es ungewiß, welch einen Umfang er seinem Stoffe zu geben gedachte, und wie er denselben eigentlich zu vertheilen Willens war. Das erste Buch hatte er, wie die Aufschrift des ältern Titelblattes angiebt, dem Leben des Dichters bestimmt; und diesem sollte vermuthlich eine kritische Zergliederung seiner Schauspiele, und eine deutsche Uebersetzung in Prose nachfolgen.&#147; (IIIf.).
