      um 1760 - 15 Bl. Beschreibungen, 15 Orig.- Kuperstiche (39,5 x 26 cm), Privat-Kart.-Mappe., Min gebräunt, tadellos Text. franz. 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.

        Des Semis et Plantations des Arbres, et de leur culture ; ou méthode pour multiplier et élever les arbres, les planter en massifs et en avenues ; former les forets et les bois ; les entretenir, et rétablir ceux qui sont dégradés : faisant partie du Traité complet des bois et des forêts

      Paris: H. L Guérin et L. F. Delatour, 1760 - 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 First edition. 4to.

        Sophokles. Erstes Buch. Von dem Leben des Dichters. // [Zweiter Titel:] Gotthold Ephraim Lessings Leben des Sophokles. Herausgegeben von JOHANN JOACHIM ESCHENBURG. Berlin, bey Christian Friedrich Voß und Sohn 1790.

      Berlin, bey Christian Friedrich Voß 1760 - 8°. Titel, VIII,(3-) 172 S. . Halblederband mit Rückenschild und –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. „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.“ (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 „lieb gewonnen“ (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 – G) drucken lassen, als Lessing die Arbeit abbrach. „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’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.“ (IIIf.).

        Les Oeuvres de theatre [12 Volumes, complete]

      Libraires Affocies 1760 - Paris, 1760. Nouvelle Edition, revue & corrigee. 12 Volumes, 12mo, contemporary mottled calf, gilt lettered spine-labels (rubbed), some moderate wear, contemporary writing on preliminary pages of a volume and a few chips to leather but still in very good condition. A very scarce early complete set of Florent Carton Dancourt's dramatic works. The plays of Dancourt are faithful descriptions of the manners of the time, and as such have real historical value. The characters are drawn with a realistic touch that led to his being styled by Charles Palissot the Teniers of comedy. He is very successful in his delineation of low life, and especially of the peasantry. The dialogue is sparkling, witty and natural. Many of the incidents of his plots were derived from actual occurrences in the fast and scandalous life of the period, and several of his characters were drawn from well-known personages of the day. Most of the plays incline to the type of farce rather than of pure comedy. Voltaire defined his talent in the words: "What Regnard was in respect to Moliere in the high comedy, Dancourt was in the farce." (French: "Ce que Regnard était à l'égard de Molière dans la haute comédie, le comédien Dancourt l'était dans la farce.")

Paris: H.L. Guerin & L.F. Delatour, 1760. First edition and an attractive copy, complete with the two Additions. Duhamel (1700-82), French polymath, made notable contributions in agronomy, chemistry, botany, and naval technology. His major interest and contribution to technology and society was in agriculture. Duhamel "adapted Tull’s system to France based on his own wide reading in French agronomy and on original experiments."–D.S.B., IV, p. 224. One of Duhamel’s main interests was the cultivation and use of timber; this is one of his chief books on the subject. "The sections of the book discuss the soil, the climate, and the choice of trees; their propagation; nursery gardens; planting; forests; and maintenance and re-afforestation, with all instructions based firmly on the author’s long experience of forestry."–Raphael, An Oak Spring Sylva, 34. The attractive plates depict methods of grafting, agricultural implements, etc. Fine copy. 19th-century bookplate of F. Allard. ? Stafleu & Cowan 1545. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Interest of Great Britain considered, with Regard to her Colonies, and the Acquisitions of Canada and Guadeloupe. To which are added, Observations concerning the Increase of Mankind, Peopling those Countries, &c.

      London: printed for T. Becket, 1760 - 7 pamphlets bound in one volume, octavo (190 × 128 mm). Franklin: pp. [2], 58, including the additional leaf at the end. Late 19th-century half calf, marbled boards, red morocco label, narrow bands, gilt lozenges to compartments, marbled endpapers. A little rubbed, contents variably soiled and browned; half-title and title of item (b) torn, no loss of text, half-title laid down, last leaf of the same torn across and with an old sewn repair backed with paper; final leaf of Franklin slightly crumpled and torn at the inner margin, loss of a few characters but overall very good. Full-page table to item (e). First edition of Franklin's "Canada Pamphlet", an important contribution to the debate on the relative merits of the retention of Canada or sugar-rich Guadeloupe following the impending victory in the Seven Years' War. Although contemporary opinion credited Franklin – this copy is annotated "by Mr. Frankland [sic] of America" on the title page – 19th-century scholarship attributed the pamphlet to Richard Jackson. However, the publication of The Papers of Benjamin Franklin returned "The Canada Pamphlet" to the canon: "in recent years Franklin's authorship has been re-established in the minds of all but a few doubters, though, as Franklin himself seems to have acknowledged, he received some help from his friend and ally Jackson. With this attribution to Franklin the present editors wholly concur" (Papers 9:53). As well as arguing strongly for the retention of Canada, in this, "one of his most important publications in pamphlet form", Franklin also discusses the potential problems of government that might attend the expansion of the colonies, but doubts their ability to act in concert. Further growth "may render them dangerous. Of this I own, I have not the least conception, when I consider that we have already fourteen separate governments Those we now have, are not only under different governors, but have different forms of government, different laws, different interests, and some of them different religious persuasions and different manners. Their jealousy of each other is so great that however necessary an union of the colonies has long been, for their common defence and security against their enemies, they have never been able to effect such an union among themselves Nothing but the immediate command of the crown has been able to produce even the imperfect union but lately seen there". From the library of the 5th Earl of Rosebery, Liberal prime minister and bibliophile, whose collecting was marked by a sensitivity to provenance, the present volume with the armorial bookplate of the antiquary and collector James Maidment reimposed verso of the front free endpaper. A prominent figure in Scottish literary circles, Maidment was a friend of Sir Walter Scott, and himself an author: "his publications mainly of editions of Scottish historical, literary, genealogical, and antiquarian material were very numerous. Many were anonymous, and most were privately printed in small editions, some at least for their bawdy or erotic content" (ODNB). The sale of his extensive library in over 5,000 lots occupied 15 sessions in April and May 1880, raising about £4,500. The other six items in this pamphlet volume relate to Britain's involvement in mid-18th century conflicts worldwide, including a number of uncommon and important pieces, all printed in London: a. A Letter to the Most Noble Thomas, Duke of Newcastle, on certain Points of the last Importance to these Nations H. Whitridge, 1746; pp. [2], 38. First edition; an analysis of the causes of the second Jacobite rebellion; b. EGMONT, John Perceval, Earl of. An Examination of the Principles, and an Enquiry into the Conduct of the Two B*****rs The Fifth Edition, reviewed and corrected. A. Price, 1749; pp. [4], 79, half-title bound in.

(2), XXX, 364; XII, 360. A wonderful set in exemplary condition, extremely fresh and clean, the paper unpressed and the impression is bold, dark and fine. A RARE, IMPORTANT AND VERY BEAUTIFUL EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC OF ITALIAN LITERATURE. The edition has long been considered one of the richest and most magnificent of the many editions of Tasso printed over the centuries. Poet, prose writer and literary theorist, Tasso was successor to and deviator from the tradition of Boiardo and Ariosto, he gave to the court of Ferrara the third of the great ottava rima epic romances celebrating the Este ancestry, Gerusalemme Liberata, and the purest example of Renaissance pastoral drama, Aminta. Even before its end, his life became a legend of poetic madness and wandering. Born in Sorrento, he shared the political exile of his father, Bernardo, and began his literary studies and his long experience of Italian courts in Urbino. He attended the universities of Padua and of Bologna, at 18 published Rinaldo, a chivalric poem in 12 cantos, and in 1565 took service with Cardinal Luigi d'Este. Although he completed the Liberata in 1575, Tasso was never to be satisfied with it in relation to neo-Aristotelian canons of epic poetry or to Counter-Reformation religious orthodoxy, and restlessly he consulted scholars on one score and ecclesiastical inquisitors on the other. In 1577 he was imprisoned for a paranoid display of violence in the presence of Lucrezia d'Este. He escaped to the south but, following another outburst on his return to Ferrara in 1579, was shut up in the hospital of S. Anna, to remain there until 1586. The Liberata was finally published in 1581, but Tasso continued to regard the poem as unfinished while it circulated in several editions from that year on. Released from S. Anna, he went to Mantua under the protection of Duke Vincenzo Gonzaga, and thence into a ceaseless vagabondage that took him to Genoa, Rome, Naples and Florence. He received hospitality from religious orders and academies, from the Medici, from the marquis Giambattista Manso, and from Pope Clement VIII and his nephew, to whom Tasso dedicated the only authorized version of his epic, much reworked and retitled.

In near fine condition in an attractive calf with gilt tooling to the spine. Housed in a handsome custom leather box. Tristram Shandy is considered by many the first modern novel and Sterne the father of stream of consciousness writing. It is perhaps the most literal example of a novel available.

His narrative devices and styles have indelibly influenced many modern and postmodern authors: James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Milan Kundera, Salmon Rushdie among others.

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.

Folio (235 x 358 mm).. Unique manuscript containing 113 numbered and indexed Royal decrees, dating from 1642 to 1757, with additional material bound at the end of the volume: nine items of correspondence with the Conselho Ultramarino dating from 1681 to 1735, separately indexed as "Rellacao das Rezolucoens, Cartas Regias, e mais Ordens, que ha na Secretaria do Concelho Ultramarino, Sobre as Alvidracoens do Estado da India". Many of the documents are transcribed from the Secretario do Conselho Ultramarino, others constitute missives by various viceroys and governors of India. The information ranges from trade agreements and navigation routes through Arabian waters to India to customs regulations and trade with East Africa, negotiations with the British in Bombay, and the issue of piracy. Other documents pertain to missionary activity and the "various gentile peoples living in Goa". - Portuguese expansion into the Indian Ocean began in the early 16th century following Vasco da Gama's explorations and led to numerous armed conflicts with the Ottoman Empire along the coast of the Arabian Gulf. Here, the Portuguese asserted their suzerainity for more than two centuries: in 1750, Nasir bin Murshid al-Yaribi, Imam of Oman, ousted the Portuguese from Muscat, which Afonso de Albuquerque had conquered in 1507. - Written by various hands, but assembled and indexed by the Royal secretary Joaquim Miguel Lopes de Laire, whose name is signed under the index and most of the supplementary documents. A first-hand window into the legal, commercial, and military aspects of Portuguese rule in their Middle Eastern colonies. - Upper spine-end professionally repaired; an appealingly bound volume. From the collection of D. Manuel de Sousa e Holstein Beck, conde da Povoa (1932-2011); monogram stamp of the Dukes of Palmela to first page.
