        Die Eisgebirge des Schweizerlandes

      Bern:: Abraham Wagner,, 1760. 8vo. 3 vols., 8vo (205 x 123 mm). I: 41, [3], 237, [1 bl.], [3], [1 bl.] pp. II: [4], 9, [3], 224 pp.; III: 14, 219, 2, [1 bl.] pp. 21 engraved plates: frontispiece, 2 folding maps of the Swiss Alps, including one mineralogical map, and 17 folding plates, by A. Zingg after drawings from nature by J. L. Aberli, S. H. Grim, D. Dürringer, J. H. Koch, F. Meyer, Huber (dated 1720), G. Walser, Zingg himself, and others. Some light foxing or browning, both folding maps with a short repaired tear, edges of Grindelwald view-plan (inserted before p. 91) a bit frayed and stained. Original plain boards, manuscript titles on spines; folding cloth chemise & slipcase. Provenance: Abr. Pagan, 1761, crossed-out signatures; Heilmann, signatures.***& & FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE EARLIEST SCIENTIFIC SURVEYS OF ALPINE GLACIERS, CONTAINING THE FIRST ACCURATE MINERALOGICAL MAP OF THE SWISS ALPS. An archivist and historian, Gruner served from 1749 as Hofmeister with Prince Christian von Anhalt-Schaumburg, whom he frequently accompanied on trips, collecting mineralogical and other natural specimens. This survey of the geography, geology and physics of the glaciers and glacial mountains of Switzerland (and parts of present-day Italy) was his most important work. The first two volumes contain detailed topographical and mineralogical descriptions of the areas covered, based in part on previous writers and on correspondence with contemporaries. Concluding volume II is a chapter comparing the glacial mountains of the Swiss Alps to those of northern Europe, and in the third volume Gruner analyzes glaciers generally, discussing the physical characteristics of ice fields and glaciers, various types of glaciers, their altitude, beauty, chemical and mineral properties, and age. He attempts to explain the presence of erratic blocks, whose origin he recognized, though he could not correctly account for the way in which they had been carried to their present locations. The work concludes with two interesting chapters on potential uses of glaciers and on the dangers awaiting the mountain explorer.& & The striking engravings show high mountain views, many graphically depicting the enormity of glaciers 250 years before their present state of rapid regression. Most important is Gruner’s large mineralogical map (often lacking), “Die Eisgebyrge des Schweizerlandes, mit allen dabey vorkommenden Mineralien,” the first such map for Switzerland. Drawn and engraved in Paris by A. Zingg, the map contains chemical symbols (identified at bottom) signifying mineralogical deposits; the major peaks are number-keyed to a list at bottom.A large vignette at the lower left shows the human side of mineral collecting, with a man pushing a wheelbarrow of rocks out of a cave, another man carrying rocks on his back, etc.& & A free (and “bad” according to the Encyclopedia Britannica 11th edition) French translation by Keralio was published in Paris in 1770; it is much more common than this first edition.

        Der Arzt. Eine medicinische Wochenschrift. Herausgeber Johann August Unzer

      Hamburg, Grund 1760 -1764. 20 cm. 12 Teile und Register in 12 Bänden. Mit 12 gestochenen Titelvignetten von J. C. G. Fritsch und a. Leder-Bände der Zeit mit je 2 farbigen Rückenschildern und Rückenvergoldung - Kirchhoff I, 13 - 14 - Hirsch / Hübotter V, 680 (8 Bde.) - Blake 21 - ADB 39, 331 - Erstausgabe (Tl. 1-2 in 2. Auflage). Mit einem Register über alle 12 Teile. Adam (in "Librarium" 38. 1995, H. 3) 175ff: "Unzer wendet sich an einen Leser, der nicht in den medizinischen Wissenschaften ausgebildet ist, sich aber für medizinische Fragen interessiert ... Vornehmste Intention des aufgeklärten Arztes ... ist es, den Adressaten zu einem mündigen Leser zu erziehen ... das Muster, an dem sich Unzer orientiert sind die englischen Wochenschriften. Wie Addison, Johnson oder Knox sucht er das Gespräch mit dem Leser ... Der Hamburger Arzt wendet sich vehement gegen Vorurteile und Scharlatanerie bei der Behandlung von Krankheiten ... Um helfen zu können und eine gewisse Konfusion in den Anfragen zu vermeiden, veröffentlicht Unzer im 7. Teil eine Art Fragenkatalog für Patienten, der auf die modernen Fragebögen beim ersten Arztbesuch vorausweist." "Unzer gilt im Zeitalter der Aufklärung, auf dem Gebiete der Pathologie als einer der bedeutensten, originellsten und klarsten Schriftsteller; Goethe schreibt ihm in seinen "Annalen" neben Haller einen großen Enfluß auf sein Jahrhundert zu; ... Seine Kunst der Datstellung tritt, unterstützt durch feinen Humor, auch in seiner populären medizinischen Wochenschrift "Der Arzt" hervor, ... es ist ein Vergügen sie zu lesen."

        M. Annaei Lucani Pharsalia cum notis Hugoni Grotii et Richardi Bentleii

      [Twickenham]: Strawberry Hill Press. 1760. First Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary calf rebacked preserving original boards and lettering piece, boards with decorative gilt border and elaborate gilt corner pieces, spine with gilt decoration, corners a little bumped/rubbed, some surface wear to boards with small loss to gilding in a few places, edges of text-block marbled, marbled endpapers, engraved vignette on title page and vignette on 'Ad Lectorum' leaf both by Grignion, contents clean and bright. This copy is in the first state of what Hazen describes as " perhaps the most distinguished piece of printing to come from the Press at Strawberry Hill" (Hazen 7, p. 49)., Horace Walpole (1717-1797) was a politician, a patron of the arts and an author. Today he probably best known as the author of the gothic novel, 'The Castle of Otranto' and for his home in Twickenham, Strawberry Hill. Here Walpole indulged his taste for the gothic, slowly transforming the house into the finest example of Georgian Gothic revival architecture in the country. The house gave its name to Walpole's private press which was founded in June 1757. While the press published many of Walpole's own works it did not publish his most famous work, 'The Castle of Otranto' and in later life Walpole would describe his 'Anecdotes of Painting in England' as "‘the only thing I ever published of any use." Hazen it seems disagrees with this sentiment as did Thomas Dibdin, who described the 'Pharsalia' as the "most perfect specimen of that press.", 4to 11" - 13" tall, [3]ff., [1]-525, [1] pp .

        Relacion Funebre de las Reales Exequias .de la Serenissima Magestad.La Señora Doña Maria Barbara de Portugal, Catholica Reyna de las Indias, mandò celebrar en esta capital de Los Reyes el dia 4 de Septiembre de 1759

      Lima: Imprenta Real for Pedro Nolasco Alvorado, 1760. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to. [19 x 13], (2) ff., 132 pp., 112 (ie 214) (1) f., with one large [49.5 x 34.5] engraved plate of the catafalque signed Camacho after Bexerano 1759, and two woodcut plates of calligrams; [Including:] TAGLE Y BRACHO, Juan Antonio de. Oracion Funebre. (12) ff., 136 (ie 138) pp. Bound in contemporary calf, joints cracked but sound. Some minor staining at extreme edge of title. Plate toned but very fresh, as is rest of copy. Excellent. Rare first edition of the funeral-book of Maria Barbara of Portugal, Queen-consort of Spain and wife of Ferdinand VI, with a large folding plate of her catafalque. As with many books of exequies for European monarchs printed in America, the volume appeared over a year after the Queen's death in Madrid in August 1758, subsequent to her funeral exequies held at the Cathedral of Lima on 4 September 1759. The volume's folding engraving depicts a four-tier catafalque with six pairs of Ionic columns and eight obelisks, of which the four largest are crowned by the arms of the Spanish monarchy: a castle tower and a lion with its paws resting on twin globes. The Queen's casket is shown on a dias in the center of the monument, surrounded by elaborately wrought candelabra and scrollwork-a visible testament to French rococo influence in the court of Spain during the mid-18th C. Below the catafalque are the signatures of its engraver Camacho and its designer and builder, the architect Antonio Bejarano Loayza; a year after Ferdinand VI died in 1759, heartbroken and distraught, Loayza designed his catafalque as well.Among the work's gathering of dedicatory and elegiac verse-sonnets, decasyllables, octavas, décimas, romances, acrostics and other forms popular in Perú at the time-of special note are two unusual folded woodcuts presenting a large, diamond-shaped acrostic, and a self-described "eccentric labyrinth" of décimas in the shape of a spiraling horn. The volume is bound with a separately-titled copy of the funeral oration.OCLC: Indiana, Duke, Yale. *Lilly on-line record; Medina 1162; Vargas Ugarte 1818 Palau 143,659 (lacking first section); Watanabe 2452; Pouncey, "Túmulos of Colonial Perú," The Art Bulletin, v. 67 #1 (March 1985), pp. 18-32.

      London: Printed by John Baskerville, Printer to the University, 1760. An outstanding copy in an ornate contemporary red morocco binding with green on red leather onlays and extensive gilt decoration. A notoriously difficult book to determine with numerous permutations of cancelled and uncancelled leaves. The title page to this copy is dated 1760 and importantly priced at "Six Shillings and Six Pence, unbound" and therefore Gaskell's First edition, Group One (whereas slightly later copies were priced at "Seven/Eight Shillings and Six Pence, unbound"), however this copy conforms to a rate state of which Gaskell writes "There is however a rare state - I know of only three copies - in which sections x-2b, 2N-2Q, the 'occasional prayers', are found in a new setting....these reset sections are something of a puzzle, since, while they are obviously later, they occur...with group 1 (6s. 6d.) title-pages (with border), which is of course an early variety." As stated this copy includes the 'occasional prayers' with the text ending on Qq4b; "A form of Prayer with Thanksgiving... upon the Twenty-fifith Day of October; being the Day which his Majesty began his happy Reign" is present, Queen Charlotte is mentioned and has a proclamation dated 7 October 1761 is also present. The text is arranged in a single column within Baskerville's decorative 'lozenge-and-star' border; the same border appears on the title page. Contemporary full red morocco binding with central onlay in blue and green morocco, stamped "JHS" to the centre, with angels and stars about, double gilt sunbursts; border with urns and floral motifs, fillets; spine with 5 raised bands and gilt decoration to the compartments. All edges gilt, original marbled end papers; binding very good with a little general wear and rubbing, gilt generally bright, front joint with short cracks but remaning strong; head/tail of spine and corners a little more worn, with boards showing through to upper corners. Contents clean and tight, wide margins, engraved contemporary bookplate of Henrietta Jane Arnold to the front paste-down with a couple of later autographed gift labels of the same, stating gift of the prayer book to her grandaugther dated December 1842; small light ink mark to the fore-edge, otherwise contents appears unmarked. A very good copy in a fine contemporary binding of a rate state. Printed in the famous Baskerville Type by one of the greatest printers of the 18th Century, John Baskerville. (Gaskell 12 - p.31John Baskerville, A Bibliography). First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good. Royal 8vo (17 X 24cm).

        PHILOSOPHIAE NATURALIS PRINCIPIA MATHEMATICA; Perpetuis Commentariis illustrata, communi studio PP. Thomae Le Seur & Francisci Jacquier, Ex Gallicana Minimorum Familia, Matheseos Professorum. Editio altera longe accuratior & emendatior

      Coloniae Allobrogum, Cl. & Ant. Philibert, 1760.. SECOND JESUITS' EDITION, 1760, published in Geneva, 3 volumes, complete set. 4to, 250 x 195 mm, 10 x 7¾ inches, title page in Volume I printed red and black, Volumes 2 & 3 printed in black only, as issued, profusely illustrated throughout with diagrams, engraved pictorial headpiece to first chapter in Volumes 1 & 2, Latin text. Pagination: Volume1: xxxii, 548; Volume 2: [8], 422; Volume 3: [8], xxviii, 703, pages 501-504 in Volume 1 bound out of order, seems to be the same in all copies I could find, Volume 1 has a half-title but no half-titles to the other volumes as issued, Volume 3 is printed in 2 parts, the second of which has only a drop head title at page 376 as required, there are 2 different pages numbered 375-76, a printer's error, there are a few more pagination errors but all volumes collated and guaranteed complete. Bound in half calf over marbled boards, green gilt lettered labels between raised bands, just stating NEWTON, gilt volume number to each volume. Bindings rubbed, hinges cracked on Volume 1, but still holding firm, 12 mm (½ inch) hole to top of hinge on Volume 3, Volume 2 top hinge has 40 mm (1½ inch) crack, but still holding firm, other hinges rubbed but all covers holding firm, corners worn with board showing through at most tips, green labels unevenly faded, 4 pages have very small holes to top margins, not affecting text, 1 top margin has very small chip, all paper flaws but not affecting text, 2 pages lightly dusty and a few top margins have a light brown horizontal stain, not affecting text, 3 pages have tips of corners missing, paper flaws, some occasional light age-browning due to different paper stock used, small neat old ink inscription to the top margin of each title page, 3 ink shelf numbers to top of the first free endpaper of each volume, occasional small spots and creases as is usual in old books, otherwise a very good set of this classic work. This edition first published in Geneva in 1739 is known as the "Jesuits" edition although the 2 editors Le Seur and Jacquier were Minims not Jesuits. The text of the Principia is that of the third edition, each volume contains a separate book of Principia and the 3rd Volume contains in addition "Traite sur le flux et reflux de la mer. Par mr. Daniel Bernoully": Volume 3, pages 133-246. "De causa physica fluxus et refluxus maris. A d. d. Mac-Laurin": Volume 3, pages 247-282. "Inquisitio physica in causam fluxus et refluxus maris. A d. d. Euler": Volume 3, pages 283-274. These were three prizewinning essays submitted in 1724 to the Academie des Sciences to resolve "the Problem relating to the Motion of the Tides from the theory of gravity". The third volume also contains a long Introductio ad lunae theoriam Newtonionam pages 537-677. The Jesuits' edition is valued for its copious commentary. See Derek Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook page 477: "With its rich editorial content, extensive summaries and detailed index, the Jesuit edition remains the most ambitious ever published. Between 1727 and 1871 and excluding translations, the only editions of Principia published were Jesuit editions. It is still a desirable and useful work". See also the Babson Catalogue page 19.

        Les Oeuvres de theatre [12 Volumes, complete]

      Libraires Affocies. Hardcover. 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.") OCLC 559462827, locating two copies which are both held by the British National Libraries. . Very Good. 1760. First Edition.

        Recens Edita totius Novi Belgii, in America Septentrionali siti, delineatio cura et sumtibus Tob. Conr. Lotteri, Sac. Caes. Maj. Geographi August. Vind. Cum Gratia et Privil. S.R.I. Vicariat in part, Rheni, Sveviae, et Juris Franconici

      Augsburg: Tobias Conrad Lotter, [circa 1760]. Copper engraving, coloured by hand. Fine condition. Plate mark: 19 3/4 x 22 7/8 inches. Sheet size: 21 1/4 x 25 1/2 inches. An excellent example of the second state of this map to carry Lotter's imprint: an important map of the American northeast with an inset view of New York City This is the fifth state (with the 'Boston' reading) of a map originally issued by Matthaeus Seutter (1678- 1757) in 1730, but is also a fine example of one of the much-pirated Jansson-Visscher New England series of maps, first published by Visscher in 1651. The present Seutter/Lotter plate `is the first map in the [Jansson-Visscher] series to show ... the boundaries of Massachusetts, New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania'. There are three states with Seutter's imprint, and after his death in 1757 his son-in-law, Tobias Conrad Lotter, inserted his own name and three further states were published. This is the second of those three states with the spelling of Boston corrected. To this map of the northeast is added the famous 'Restitutio View' of New York City, which celebrated the brief return to Dutch governance from late 1672 until February of 1674. This is one of the earliest views of the city. Adorning the inset view is a very elaborate tableau in which the Emperor, Charles VI, is shown attended by Hermes, god of commerce, Athena, goddess of wisdom, and Hera, who is standing over a chest of gold coins. Behind the divine beings, dark-skinned workers of the world carry nature's products to lay at the Emperor's feet. The Seutter / Lotter dynasty was one of the most important of all eighteenth-century German map-making firms. The business was established by Lotter's father- in-law who had trained under the renowned cartographer Johann Baptiste Homann in Nuremberg. By 1731 Seutter had been appointed Geographer to the Imperial Court. On his death, Lotter continued in the same post, and with his son Mathais Albrecht Lotter produced cartographical works of a consistently high quality throughout the 18th century. Cf. Augustyn/ Cohen pp.46-47; cf. McCorkle New England 730.5 (1st state, but briefly noting later states); cf. Stokes & Phelps The Iconography of Manhattan Island 1498-1909 I, plate 16b and p.223 (1st state); R.V. Tooley The Mapping of America p.291, #27.

        Lettres sur la danse et sur les ballets. ?

      Lyon, Delaroche, 1760.8vo. Contemp. marbled calf, gilt fillets on covers, gilt edges; spine and corners rubbed, joints repaired. (6), 484 pp.; some light toning of the paper; a distinguished copy with ms. note at beginning "Ex Libris Josephi Uriot, historiarum Professoris et S.mi Wurtemb. Ducis Bibliothecarii", the bookplates of the musicologist Sir John Stainer (1840-1901), and of the pianist Alfred Cortot (1877-1962). First edition of a revolutionary treatise which brought about major reforms in ballet production. «No book has exerted so incalculable an influence for good on the manners and production of ballets and dances» (Beaumont, pp.134-5). «There has been considerable debate as to whether this issue or the one with the imprint ?A Stuttgart, et se vend a Lyon? is the earlier? Apart from the title-page and the privilege leaf, the books are identical? The wording of the dedication suggests that although Noverre was, at the time of writing, in the service of the Duke of Wurtemberg, he had not yet taken up his appointment? These facts seem to point to the priority of the Lyon issue» (Fletcher, Forty Rare Dance Books, 34). Also Derra de Moroda, Dance Library, 1965, lists this issue first. En français dans le texte, 161. Prima edizione di un?opera fondamentale nella letteratura della danza.

        Veduta interna dell?Atrio del Portico di Ottavia

      Acquaforte firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Della serie ?Vedute di Roma?. Esemplare nel rarissimo primo stato di sei, prima dell?indirizzo dell?editore Bouchard e Gravier e dei ritocchi a bulino. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con margini, consueta piega centrale verticale, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Opera molto rara in questa tiratura. Giovanni Battista Piranesi nasce a Mogliano Veneto o Mogliano di Mestre, vicino Venezia, nel 1720 e muore a Roma nel 1778. Si può senza dubbio considerare come il più notevole incisore del secolo, ed il maggiore artista in questa materia nel periodo che va da Rembrandt a Goya. La sua opera incisa consta di oltre 1000 lavori, realizzati dal 1743 (anno della pubblicazione della prima opera), e l?anno della sua morte. La sua produzione si può dividere in più periodi: un primo nel quale si dedica ai lavori di architettura fantastica nel quale realizza tra l?altro Prima Parte di Architetture, e Prospettive inventate ed incise da Gio. Batta Piranesi Architetto Veneziano dedicate al Sig. Nicola Giobbe (1743), i celebri Grotteschi (1750), oltre al suo capolavoro assoluto, le Carceri d?invenzione, pubblicate dal suo editore Bouchard nel 1750. Nel periodo successivo rivolge la sua attenzione sui lavori di archeologia pubblicando testi come : Trofei di Ottaviano Augusto (1753), Le Rovine del Castello dell?Acqua Giulia (1761), Le Lapidi Capitoline (1762), Il Campo Marzio dell?Antica Roma, Opera di G. B. Piranesi socio della reale società degli antiquari di Londra (1762), e dei lavori sul Lago di Albano, su Cori e Paestum, ma che raggiungono il massimo con Le Antichità Romane, opera in quattro volumi che unisce ai lavori di archeologia, quelli straordinari di fantasia. Un ultimo periodo caratterizza il Piranesi nel suo aspetto più commerciale di editore, quando già famosissimo realizza oltre duecento lastre decorative di antichità, raccolte nell?opera Diverse maniere d?adornare i cammini (1769) e Vasi, candelabri, cippi, sarcofagi, tripodi, lucerne, ed ornamenti antichi disegnati ed incisi dal Cav. Gio. Batt. Piranesi (1778). Inoltre, nel corso di tutta la sua carriera artistica, il Piranesi disegna, incide e compone quella che oggi risulta sicuramente la sua opera più imponente e magistrale, le celebri Vedute di Roma. Etching, circa 1760, signed on plate at lower right. From the series "Views of Rome". Example belonging to the extremely rare first state out of six, before the address of the editor Bouchard & Gravier and finishing touches (engravings) were added. Beautiful proof, printed on contemporary laid paper watermark, with margins, usual vertical central fold, overall in very good conditions. The example of the print here presented is a rare collector's item. Giovanni Battista Piranesi was born at Mogliano Veneto or Mogliano di Mestre, near Venice, in 1720 and died in the whereabouts of Rome in 1778. Undoubtedly he can be thought of as being the most important engraver of his century and the leading artist in this field in the period going from Rembrandt to Goya. His catalogue comprises more than one thousand engravings, created between 1743 (the year in which his first work was published), and the year of his death. His output can be divided into distinct periods. In the first of these he devoted himself to depictions of imaginary architectures among which are Prima Parte di Architetture e Prospettive inventate ed incise da Gio. Batta Piranesi Architetto Veneziano dedicate al Sig. Nicola Giobbe [First Part of Architectures and Perspectives created and engraved by Gio. Battista Piranesi Venetian Architect dedicated to Mr. Nicola Giobbe] (1743), the famed Grotteschi [Grotesques] (1750) and, finally, his absolute masterpiece, the Carceri d'invenzione [Imaginary prisons] published by his editor Bouchard in 1750. In the following period he focused his attention on archaeology publishing works related to this topic, such as the Trofei di Ottaviano Augusto [Trophies of Octavian Augustus] (1753), Le Rovine del Castello dell'Acqua Giulia [The ruins of the Castle of Acqua Giulia...] (1761), Le Lapidi Capitoline [The Capitol Memorial Plaques] (1762), Il Campo Marzio dell'Antica Roma, Opera di G. B. Piranesi socio della reale società degli antiquari di Londra [The Campus Martius of Ancient Rome, Work by G.B. Piranesi, member of the Royal Antiquary Society of London] (1762), together with prints depicting the Lake of Albano and the towns of Cori and Paestum. His most important work in this period is the Le Antichità Romane [The Roman Antiquities], in four volumes where archaeological documentation can be seen together with remarkable achievements of the artist's imagination. Finally, in the third and last period, Piranesi's activities were characterised, as an editor, by a more commercial flavour. By this time he was already very famous and created over two hundred decorative plates depicting antiquities collected in his works Diverse maniere d'adornare i cammini [Various manners of decorating paths...] (1769) and Vasi, candelabri, cippi, sarcofagi, tripodi, lucerne ed ornamenti antichi disegnati ed incisi dal. Cav. Gio. Batt. Piranesi [Vases, chandeliers, funeral columns, sarcophaguses, tripods, oil lamps and ancient adornments drawn and engraved by the Cav. Gio. Batt. Piranesi] (1778). Furthermore, during the length of his whole artistic career, Piranesi drew, engraved and composed his most important and significant work of art, the renowned Vedute di Roma [Views of Rome], in which his professional contentment in being an architect together with a personal pride in his Venetian origins can be witnessed in the title-page, signed as ?Giovan Battista Piranesi Architetto Veneziano" ["Giovan Battista Piranesi Venetian Architect"].

Prima edizione francese della "Storia e fenomeni del Vesuvio" del Della Torre (Napoli, 1755), importante descrizione delle eruzioni vesuviane avvicendatesi nei secoli. La traduzione è dell'abate Péton, che non si limitò a volgere l'opera in francese, ma la ampliò e aggiornò sino al 1760 basandosi su documenti fornitigli dal Della Torre stesso. Il Della Torre (Roma-1712-Napoli, 1782), sacerdote somasco, fu fisico e naturalista. Moncada Lo Giudice, 2167: "È forse questa la prima storia generale del Vesuvio, che prende le mosse dall'eruzione descritta da Plinio... Nel gennaio 1755 il Journal des Etrangers espresse un giudizio estremamente positivo sul lavoro, che del resto ottenne buona accoglienza nell'ambiente scientifico dell'epoca".

Despite his deceptively quiet personality, Saunders carried out his orders with dogged determination. His career up to this point was marked by no outstanding sea victories yet he had a reputation for being one of the best and luckiest officers in the Royal Navy. Now he was placed in overall command of a quarter of the Royal Navy. , September 12 saw a good deal of activity on the part of the Royal Navy, causing Montcalm to wonder where Wolfe was with the main part of his army. Saunders had stationed his fleet opposite the Beauport Lines, he didn't give the French a moments peace all day or night. On September 18, Admiral Saunders and Brigadier General George Townshend accepted the surrender of Quebec. Yet Saunders accomplishments did not end with the conquest of Quebec, he also provided the garrison with cannons, ammunition and provisions before he left, even to the extent of reducing his ships' stores. It may be that Quebec might well have been recaptured by the French under Francis de Gaston, Chevalier de Levis the following spring if not for the troops and supplies Saunders had left behind. Horace Wallpole once said of Saunders, "No man said less and deserves more." He died in 1775 and is buried in Westminster Abbey near the Wolfe memorial.

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).

        The Surgeon's Theatre in the Old Bailey, c 1760

      1760. [Engraving]. [Old Bailey]. Cole, Benjamin [fl. 1700-1767], Engraver. The Surgeon's Theatre in the Old Bailey, c. 1760. 8" x 13" copperplate engraving, handsomely matted and glazed, margins trimmed closely, image mounted on board. Negligible light toning to margins, negligible faint crease to right side of image. A nice copy in a handsome frame. * This engraving depicts the front elevation of the original home of the Royal College of Surgeons. From 1752 to 1832 death sentences for murder in Great Britain stipulated that the condemned person's corpse be "dissected and anatomised" for the benefit of medical students shortly after the execution. This is why the Old Bailey had a surgeon's theatre. Hogarth's "The Reward of Cruelty," The Four Stages of Cruelty, Plate 4, is a satirical depiction of a dissection in this building.
