        Veterum Persarum et Parthorum et Medorum Religionis Historia.:

      Oxford Typographeo Clarendoniano 1760 - Thomas Hyde, Oxford Orientalist and divine, was the first westerner to make a serious study of the Zoroastrian religion. He researched in Greek, Latin and Arabic sources, and made use of the few Zoroastrian texts he could get hold of. Although later scholars have criticised this work it was an admirable pioneering effort, and virtually the only book on old Iranian religions available in the eighteenth century. The first edition was published in 1700. The two appendices to this second edition are: Magorum Liber Sad-der, Zoroastris Praecepta et Canones Continens: In usum Ecclesiae Magorum & Fidelium eorum omnium, and, Historiae Religionis Veterum Persarum Appendix, Continens Aliquot Tractatiunculas seu Dissertationes, in quibus paulo uberius tranctatur Pauca quaedam, tantum leviter tacta in superiore Opere. A superb copy bound in contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt. Second edition 4to, pp.[40], 580, 21 plates, 5 folding.

        Rotterdam panorama - naar Werner.

      ?ROTTERDAM??. Kopergravure vervaardigd door Jeremias Wolff naar een ontwerp van Friedrich Bernhard Werner uitgegeven door Johann Friederich Probst rond 1760, later met de hand gekleurd. afm (prent) 35 x 102 cm, met onder het stadsprofiel een legenda met landmarks.Aan het einde van de zeventiende eeuw verloor de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden langzamerhand haar rol als economische supermogendheid aan Engeland. In die tijd werden maar weinig Nederlandse stadsgezichten gemaakt. Het waren de buitenlandse uitgeverijen die toen stad (en provincie) vastlegden. Het Beierse Augsburg was met een aantal zeer actieve uitgeverijen ??Europas Bilderfabrik?. De belangrijkste uitgeverij aldaar was die van Jeremias Wolff (1663-1774) wiens zaak werd overgenomen door zijn schoonzoon Johann Balthasar Probst, vervolgens overging in de handen van Georg Bathasar Probst en later weer in handen kwam van diens zonen Georg Balthasar Probst II en Johann Friedrich Probst. Tot 1802 blijft het bedrijf in handen van de familie Probst. De firma modelleerde ook Nederlandse stadsgezichten naar Beiers voorbeeld, waarin de kerktorens uivormige bekroningen kregen.Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776) had een kleurrijke loopbaan voordat hij als freelance kunstenaar voor de uitgeverijen van Augsburg ging werken. Zo was hij ondermeer soldaat, 'Wunderdoktor', vertaler van opera?s en landmeter. Hij reisde veel door Polen, Pruisen, Pommern, Duitsland, Itali?, Frankrijk en Nederland om ontwerpen te maken voor zijn prenten van steden, kerken, paleizen en kastelen.prijs: ?3.850,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

He himself however, is a little bit vague and seems to mix them" (Ferguson 1, 169). Das Vorwort des ersten Bandes ist datiert mit 1757. Johann Heinrich starb bereits 1750.

        The Travels of Cyrus. To which is annexed, a Discourse Upon the Theology and Mythology of the Pagans.

      Np: Printed in the Year M,DCC,LX. [1760]. 12mo, xxii, 302 pp. Full calf, gilt backstrip with red morocco label. Top inch of first blank neatly cut away, frontispiece removed. Armorial bookplate of Theodore de Luders on front pastedown. Some rubbing and wear to binding, headcap chipped. A pleasant copy without foxing (reading “Discousre” on title page.) Later edition of the English translation of Les voyages de Cyrus, first published in Paris in 1727. Andrew Ramsay (1686-1743), born in Scotland, was a Jacobite and Catholic convert who spent most of his life on the continent as a tutor and student of mystical theology. His imaginary voyage was translated into English by Nathaniel Hooke and was much reprinted. “In both its French and English editions Ramsay's Cyrus was a sensation... it told the story of Cyrus's adventures among the magi and the Greeks, drawing heavily on the tradition of a pristine ancient wisdom akin to Christianity, and arguing for the existence of three states of humanity: the innocent, the fallen, and the restored. It attacked the ideas of Spinoza and upheld the existence of a subtle fluid, through whose actions God produces physical effects. It also hinted at a doctrine of metempsychosis. In its pages Ramsay attempted to reconcile the philosophy of Descartes with that of Newton in a mystical Christian context.” (DNB) Only three other copies of this edition located: British Library, Nat. Library of Scotland and Penn Libraries. ESTC T208282

        Memoire sur les defrichemens

      Veuve d'Houry, Paris 1760 - In-12, xij, 321, (1). Con 1 tavola fuori testo posta in antiporta. Ottima legatura in piena pelle bazzana marezzata, tagli rossi, dorso a ricchi fregi in oro con titolo in oro su tassello in marocchino amaranto. Ex libris manoscritto al frontespizio. Edizione originale di questa memoria fatta dall'agronomo marchese di Turbilly. Questi, avendo ereditato una proprietà di circa 3.000 acri in gran parte incolti, sperimentò personalmente tutte quelle migliorie e provvidenze (scassi, ronchi, disboscamenti, ect) che in questo libro descrive. Oltre alle sue teorie agronomiche, l'autore espone, nella seconda parte del trattato, le sue idee sull'ampiezza e sul metodo di riscossione delle imposte, sull'auspicata centralizzazione della spesa, sulle misure da adottare per il contrasto di accattonaggio e vagabondaggio che ritardano lo sviluppo delle campagne. Il libro del marchese di Turbilly ebbe un enorme successo e notorietà, servendo allo sviluppo dell'agricoltura in Francia e in Italia. Alcuni esemplari di quest'opera presentano un'addizione di 10 pagine, recanti osservazioni sulla sonda raffigurata in antiporta; tale addenda non è presente nel nostro esemplare.
