        Intitulé Véritable Cabale divine et miséricordieuse des Pseaumes de David Copie faite sur un manuscrit du 17e siècle.

      S.l., n.d., (2e partie du 18e s.), in 4°, sur papier bleuté d'une fine écriture penchée, avec les dessins des signatures angéliques in t. pour chaque psaume, pl. vélin moderne sous emboitage cart. Bel exemplaire. Rare manuscrit de le seconde moitié du 18e siècle consacré à la Kabbale des Psaumes. Il est assez proche du Manuscrit de la BNF ref. FR 14784 intitulé "La vraye Cabale mistérieuse et divine pour l'intelligence des 150 psaumes de... David...". C'est vers la fin du Moyen Âge que se développa une pratique "magique" des Psaumes attribués au Roi David. Selon les lois de la kabbale, chacun des 150 psaumes détient une vertu agissante particulière. Les juifs de toutes origines ont suivi le conseil du Zohar à faire usage du Livre des Psaumes comme une source de la prière. En effet, les Tehillim (psaumes, louanges) fournissent une prière appropriée pour chaque occasion, ce que les anciens appelaient une "Merveille de Dieu". De fait la puissance magique des psaumes était considérée comme incommensurable. Ainsi, pour obtenir une grâce du Seigneur, il ne suffisait pas de chanter le psaume indiqué, il fallait aussi effectuer ce qui permettait d'être en adéquation afin d'attirer sur soi la puissance du Nom qui y est relatif. A chaque psaume est donc associé une signature angélique particulière. Le plus ancien texte hébreu sur cette pratique magique le "Shimmush Tehilim" ("sur l'utilisation des Psaumes") date du 10e siècle. Un rare document de magie kabbalistique.

        Traité des fleurs a oignons: contenant tout ce qui est nécessaire pour les bien cultiver, fondé sur une expérience de plusieurs années ... Haarlem, C.H. Bohn, 1760. 8vo. With frontispiece folding engraved plate of a hyacinth. 19th-century boards.

      Cat. Lindley Libr., p. 231; Krelage, p. 17 etc.; cf. BMC NH, p. 956. First edition of a treatise on the cultivation of bulb flowers, signed by the author. The Dutch export of bulbs began to develop in the 17th century. Foreigners held the view that only the Dutch climate and soil were suitable for the cultivation of bulbs and that only Dutch florists possessed the necessary knowledge for this craft. European courts, with nobility and gentility following suit, bought their bulbs directly from Holland, with Haarlem as centre for this trade. Nicolaas van Kampen was among the circa 10 Haarlem florists who monopolized this lucrative business. He treats the hyacinth, the most popular bulb in the 18th century and a favourite of an important trendsetter like Madame de Pompadour, the tulip, the Persian buttercup and the anemone as well as other flowers.Curiously, our copy contains the author's signature on the verso of the title with the text "Les auteurs de cet ouvrage désavoüent tous les Exemplaires qui ne seront pas signés de leur propre Main." The Traité des fleurs a oignons was translated into English and German.Boards damaged; a good, untrimmed copy from the library of J.H. Krelage.

        Poésies de M. Haller

      - Aux dépens de la société, Berne 1760, in-8 (10,5x17cm), viij ; 9-207 pp. (1) et 196pp. et 254pp., 3 volumes reliés. - Nuova edizione ritoccata e migliorata. Tempo granita vitello biondo completa. Torna liscio decorato con fioriere e gioielli d'oro, monete titolo e il volume numeri granato e marocco abbronzatura. Tagli delineato una rete d'oro. Tutti marmorizzato. Bookplate penna eccezionale, biblioteca guardie Joseph-Ignace Guillotin su ogni volume. Dr. Joseph Ignace Guillotin è un erede dell'illuminismo, un membro della famosa loggia massonica delle Nove Sorelle. Fa amicizia con Benjamin Franklin, Lavoisier, Bailly, Buffon o Lacepede, e scrittori e artisti come Condorcet, Voltaire, Restif de la Bretonne e Moreau Le Jeune. Nel suo camerino Guillotin ha anche incontrato il suo futuro padre-Antoine-Claude Saugrain, stampante e libraio presto nominato capo bibliotecario dell'Arsenale da parte del conte d'Artois. Grande studioso, Guillotin è anche un giocatore importante nella Rivoluzione francese fin dalle sue origini. Iniziatore nel 1788 della petizione di sei corpi, sostenendo la votazione mediante scrutinio e non ultimo gli Stati Generali, è anche colui che ha portato i soci nella sala della Corte di tennis. Nel mese di aprile 1789, ha scritto con rimostranze Bailly libretto del Terzo di Parigi, che ha istituito la prima versione di Human Homme.La Criminal Law Reform sottopone all'Assemblea la stessa preoccupazione filantropica per uguaglianza con gli uomini di fronte alla legge: una sola frase, indipendentemente dal rango del criminale; mancanza di conseguenze per la sua famiglia; non decadenza del condannato; e in particolare un tipo d'attuazione "per effetto di un semplice meccanismo. ".Il Ghigliottina, ispirato da stampe d'epoca e migliorato da macchinari Dr. Antoine Louis, è uno strumento che si suppone di aver ucciso in modo indolore e sostituire esecuzione della modalità principali del vecchio regime: decapitazione da ax sciabola o la spada, appesa e roue.Or se libro di poesie Haller è una preziosa reliquia della biblioteca vicino ai grandi scienziati e artisti del tempo umanista, ci permette anche di supporre Guillotin conoscenze su questioni mediche sollevate dal suo invention.En Infatti, Albrecht von Haller non è solo un poeta. E 'anche un anatomista e fisiologo di fama, meglio conosciuto per la sua ricerca sul irritabilità, evidenziando la persistenza dei movimenti in alcune parti del corpo. "Haller chiese come la vita di un animale è ancora possibile dopo la rimozione del cervello e il numero di osservazioni relative agli insetti, quadrupedi a sangue freddo (...) che rimangono per alcuni giorni in grado di camminare e anche di accoppiarsi segnalato" (vedi Canguilhem, Formazione del concetto di riflesso dei secoli XVIII e XVIII) .OR questa riflessione è cruciale nel processo di Guillotin, dal momento che la meccanizzazione è principalmente destinato a porre fine alle sofferenze causate dalle esecuzioni. Se dal 1752 il dottor Antoine Louis partecipato alla disputa sui "segni di morte" non abbiamo alcun record di interesse di Guillotin nel numero. La presenza di un lavoro di Haller in Guillotin ci permette di supporre che il medico filantropo era pienamente consapevole del dibattito scientifico sulla questione fondamentale della immediatezza della morte a causa della rimozione della testa. Quindi, consapevolmente pronunciato come Guillotin prima dell'Assemblea questa frase (la dichiarazione sfortunato gli è valso una cattiva reputazione), "Con la mia macchina, ti faccio saltare la testa con un occhiolino, e si non soffrire. Meccanico cade come un fulmine, la testa vola, sgorga il sangue, l'uomo non è più. " - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition retouchée et augmentée.

        See-Buch, oder: Gründlicher ausführlicher Bericht... Die Sechste Auflage...

      Lübeck: Peter Böckmann, 1760. Small quarto, 99 pp. & 6 unnumbered leaves, in original marbled paper boards. A book with a strong claim to have been owned by Captain Cook. It is a rare work and the first navigation manual of the Baltic Sea. As is generally the case with such working books of navigation all editions are extremely scarce; this is the sixth edition. This book has a tantalising and plausible ownership inscription in a very old hand to the front pastedown which reads: "Henry Murck his book bought at Sea of Captn. Cook". This intriguing note is clearly meant to refer to the great explorer himself, who had spent many years sailing on colliers in the Baltic Sea before he joined the Royal Navy in 1755, and would have always had an interest in navigational guides and pilots. In the 1760s, right up until he sailed on the Endeavour, Cook was doing his superb work in mapping coastlines in Newfoundland and North America, but it is certainly very likely that he would have kept up with any work being published regarding his old stamping ground. By the same token, while Cook is not known to have had much German, the language in which this book is written, as a good navy-man of the Hannoverian era he was surrounded by German speakers whenever he sailed.The name of the owner of the book, "Murck", is certainly one to conjure with, as that name recurs in the world of contemporary shipping: a Henry Murck is, for example, listed as joining the Marine Society of the City of New York in 1795, while an L. Murck, to cite just one meaningful example, is listed as a having a 1798-registered ship out of Gothenburg (Sweden) in the Register of Shipping for 1811. The Murck family, that is, show every sign of having been established sailors in the region in the late eighteenth century, which certainly adds weight to the early provenance. Without doubt there is a firm connection between the book and the naval officer named Henry Murck who, after the end of the Napoleonic Wars, was one of the founding officers of the modern Prussian Navy in Stralsund, not least because this copy has a later stamp for a research library in Stralsund. This Henry Murck lived into the late 1840s, but it is feasible considering his family's sea-faring history, that this book had been passed down through his family. Title-page upper corner with loss, laid down, marked, old stamps including deaccession stamp; first leaf with an old repair along fore-edge not affecting text; last leaf with repair to gutter; some significant wear but withal very good.

        Physique des Comètes, Dans le sentiment de l'Impulsion & du Plein; Par le P. Bertier, de l'Oratoire; Correspondant de l'Académie Royale des Sciences. A Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1760.

      1760. In 12, [mm. 164 x 98], pp. XXIV - 244 - (2) con 1 tav. ripiegata f.t. In pelle coeva, dorso liscio riccamente decorato in oro con sette compartimenti con fiorellini, delimitati da duplici filetti lateralmente e triplici orizzontalmente lisci, con piccole elementi vegetali verso l'interno. Tassello con autore e titolo oro. I piatti presentano qualche abrasione, così come i labbri anteriori. Tagli rossi. Carte di guardia e risguardi marmorizzati. Segnacolo in tessuto staccato, ma conservato. Al frontespizio stemma reale con corona e ghirlanda. Testata incise e capolettera del primo libro incise in legno. Alcuni finalini incisi. Al risguardo anteriore etichetta: Faivre D.M. Il Bertier (1702-1783) dedica l'opera sulla natura delle comete ai colleghi dell'Académie Royale des Science. L'interesse per questi corpi celesti era dovuto al recente passaggio della cometa che Halley aveva previsto per il 1757 e che invece, a causa del fu visibile solo dl dicembre dell'anno seguente e raggiunse il suo perielio, cioè il punto di minor distanza dal sole nel marzo-aprile 1759, a causa del ritardo dell'orbita provocato dall'effetto gravitazionale dalla congiunzione di Giove e Saturno. Il primo dei tre libri che compongono l'opera analizza le opinioni degli antichi filosofi, compresa quella di Aristotele che pensava si trattassero di esalazioni terrestri per dimostrare che non si tratta di questo, né di pianeti. Nel secondo si analizzano due tipi diversi di comete, quelle "surlunaires ou supérieurs & éloignées, les autres sublunaires ou inférieurs & voisines de la Terre". Nel terzo si analizzano tre ipotesi: la prima è che le due specie di comete siano uguali, la seconda che siano pianeti oltre Saturno e l'ultima che si tratti di "tourbillons dans l'éther ... pressé extraordinairement". Al Bertier si deve anche l'opera Principes physiques, pour servir de suite aux Principes mathematiques de Newton. L'ICCU localizza solo due copie di quest'opera: una alla Braidense l'altro alla Biblioteca Estense Universitaria.

        GERMANY Ð EAST FRIESLAND / BREMEN: BASSE PARTIE DE LA WESTPHALIE, CONTENANT LA PRINCIPAUTƒ D'OST-FRISE, LA PARTIE INFƒRIEURE DES ƒVæCHƒS DE M†NSTER ET D'OSNABR†CK, LES COMTƒS D'OLDENBOURG ET DE DELMENHORST, DE LINGEN ET DE DIEPHOLZ,

      Paris: chez le Sieur Julien [circa ] 1760 - Copper engraving with full original wash colour, dissected into 9 sections and mounted upon contemporary blue silk, bearing former ownerÕs stamp of the ÔBibliothque de l'AcadŽmie des SciencesÕ in the upper left corner (Excellent, the most sumptuous original colour, original printerÕs smudge along neatline in upper left corner, some wear along original folds of silk), 53 x 41.5 cm (21 x 16.5 inches). An ultra-deluxe, and quite possibly unique, example of Rizzi-ZannoniÕs rare separately issued map of the East Friesland and Bremen regions of northwestern Germany, made during the Seven YearsÕ War, featuring the most exquisite and sophisticated original full wash colour, dissected and mounted upon contemporary blue silk. This gorgeous map is an ultra-deluxe, and possibly unique, example of Giovanni Antonio Rizzi-ZannoniÕs rare separately issued map of far northwestern Germany, including the East Friesland and Bremen regions. Unlike all other examples of the map that we could trace, this particular example features the most sumptuous and sophisticated original wash colour, with the landscape accented in a variety of different pastel hues, while the seas are bathed in an aquamarine wash, with the coastal shoals accented in a tan hue. Moreover, the map is dissected and mounted upon original blue silk, a truly luxurious and extraordinary flourish. The map depicts all or parts of what were then various German states, including the Principality of East Friesland (upper left, since 1744 a possession of Prussia); the Free Imperial City of Bremen, the great port located along the Weser River (left-hand side); the County of Oldenburg; as well as parts of the Bishoprics of MŸnster and OsnabrŸck. The map was made during the height of the Seven YearsÕ War (1756-63), a global conflict, in which Germany was a principal theatre. In the German States, the war pitted Prussia (which dominated the regions depicted), Hannover (a possession of the British royal family) and her regional allies, backed by Britain, against a coalition of German states that included Saxony and Bavaria, which were supported by France and Austria. The conflict was brutal and numerous large-scale battles were fought throughout Germany. In particular, the regions depicted here were dominated by the operations of the armies under the Prussian Field Marshal Ferdinand, Prince of Brunswick-LŸneburg. The present map was issued in Paris around 1760 by the prominent cartographer Giovanni Antonio Rizzi-Zannoni, being one of a series of separately issued maps of German regions issued to satisfy French interest in the ongoing conflict. France was astounded by the amount of blood and treasure their country was expending in Germany, which almost invariably resulted in military defeats. While the Treaty of Hubertusburg (1763) ended the war in Europe, largely on the status quo ante bellum, the French Royal government was permanently weakened by its war debts, setting the foundation for its collapse a little over a generation later during the French Revolution. The treatment of the geography on the present map is highly detailed and accurate and for the time, as Rizzi-Zannoni possessed excellent sources. Not only did he work in the region as surveyor during the mid-1750s, but as explained in the ÔAvertissementÕ (Notice) in the lower left, through his membership in the Cosmographical Society of Nuremberg, GermanyÕs premier geographic institution, he was supplied with groundbreaking maps and scientific observations. Moreover, as he noted in the title, he was indebted to the works of the eminent German geographer, Anton Friedrich BŸsching, who had published a fantastic geographic description of the region within his Anton Friderich BŸschings neue Erdbeschreibung. 3, Das Deutsche Reich nach seiner gegenwŠrtigen Staatsverfassung (Hamburg, 1757). Giovanni Rizzi-Zannoni (1736 - 1814) was one of the most consequential cartographers of the Enlightenment Age. Born in Padova, Italy, he studied at that

        Lettres sur la danse et sur les ballets.

      A Stutgard et se vend à Lyon, Aimé Delaroche, 1760. ____ Première édition de cet ouvrage fondamental. Jean Georges Noverre (1727-1810) a été le grand réformateur du ballet classique au profit du ballet d'action. Il passe en revue les qualités et les défauts des principaux danseurs, chorégraphes et maîtres de ballet de son temps. Ses théories forment les bases essentielles de l'art chorégraphique du XIXe et du XXe siècle. Les livres de Noverre sont "consultés par tous les écrivains anxieux de trouver des documents authentiques sur l'histoire de la danse. D'un autre côté, tous nos grands maîtres de ballets se sont inspirés des savants conseils que cet habile artiste a su leur prodiguer, en dévoilant la science théâtrale de la danse dans ses moindres détails comme dans ses plus grands effets." (G. Desrat, Dictionnaire de la danse p. 414.) Dos frotté, papier légèrement bruni. En Français dans le Texte 161.*****. In-8. [161 x 101 mm] Collation : (4), 484 pp Basane brune, dos à nerfs orné, tranches mouchetées. (Reliure de l'époque).

[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, 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Giphantie.

      Babylone (Paris): n.p. 1760. Octavo, with four engraved plates by Cochin after Desfriches illustrating the second work "Mon Odyssée ou le Journal de Mon Retour de Saintonge"; contemporary mottled calf,spine gilt with red label. First edition: a marvellous utopian community in Africa, prefiguring the uses of photography, television and the telephone.Tiphaigne de la Roche (1729-1774) a physician and polymath, wrote a series of works invested with the Enlightenment spirit of philosophical enthusiasm. In Giphantie (an anagram of the author's name) the protagonist is lifted semi-conscious and transported by air to an edenic garden, where a charming spirit guide shows him around their 'vaguely utopian society' (Lewis).Interestingly, the continuing importance of the book is largely due to the succession of technical devices which are taken for granted on the island, including prototype televisions and telephones. The work is particularly remembered for one intriguing passage which has been taken as an important foundation moment in the proto-history of photography. Thus, the English edition of 1761: 'You know that the rays of light, reflected from different bodies, form a picture, and paint the image reflected on all polished surfaces, for instance, on the retina of the eye, on water, and on glass. The elementary spirits have sought to fix these fleeting images... '.This work is bound together with Pierre Honoré Robbe de Beauveset's rococo poem in four verses Mon Odyssée ou le Journal de Mon Retour de Saintonge (La Haye, 1760), illustrated with four engraved plates. De Beauveset was an influential French writer known for his gentle satires and erotic works.

        Poésies de M. Haller

      Aux dépens de la société. 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 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. " --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        Histoire Naturelle, Volcans. Vue Généralle du Vesuve en 1757

      1760. Bella veduta del Vesuvio durante l'eruzione del 1757, incisa da Bernard su disegno di de la Rue. La veduta fu pubblicata nella celebre Encyclopédie di Diderot e D'Alembert (28 voll., 1751-1772). Conosciuta come l'Enciclopedia o Dizionario ragionato delle scienze, delle arti e dei mestieri rappresenta il primo vero prototipo di raccolta dello scibile umano in forma di Encyclopedia. Nata dall'idea di una traduzione corretta e ampliata della Cyclopaedia di Chambers, l'impresa mutò di segno quando l'editore ne affidò la direzione a Diderot e, «quanto alla parte matematica», a d'Alembert. Attorno al nuovo progetto furono chiamati a raccolta, come sottolineò Diderot, talenti appartenenti a «tutte le branche dello scibile umano», al fine di costituire «una società di scrittori e di artisti, intenti ciascuno al suo settore, e legati soltanto dall'interesse generale del genere umano e da un sentimento di reciproca benevolenza». Incisione su rame, finemente acquarellata, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Spectacular view of the Vesuve during the eruption of 1575, engraved by J. F. Bernard on a drawing by de la Rue. The view was published into famous Encyclopédie, ou dictionnaire raisonné des sciences, des arts et des métiers. The Encyclopédie was published under the direction of Diderot and d'Alembert, with 17 volumes of text and 11 volumes of plates between 1751 and 1772. Containing 74,000 articles written by more than 130 contributors, the Encyclopédie was a massive reference work for the arts and sciences, as well as a machine de guerre which served to propagate the ideas of the French Enlightenment. The impact of the Encyclopédie was enormous. Through its attempt to classify learning and to open all domains of human activity to its readers, the Encyclopédie gave expression to many of the most important intellectual and social developments of its time. Copperplate, finely hand coloured, in very good condition. Parigi Paris 445 355

Julião, com os cânticos e as orações por alma dos confrades e com o ofício de defuntos em uso na referida Confraria. A igreja de S. Julião, situada na Baixa de Lisboa, teve desde a idade média até ao Século XX uma brilhante vivência religiosa, com três irmandades nela sediadas, sendo uma delas a dos Apóstolos S. Pedro e S. Paulo. Com a desertificação da Baixa e a existência de várias Igrejas muito perto umas das outras e tendo o Patriarcado de Lisboa falta de dinheiro para construir Igrejas nas Avenidas Novas, para onde se expandia a cidade, o Cardeal Patriarca D. Manuel Gonçalves Cerejeira decidiu que a proprietária, a Arquiconfraria do Santíssimo Sacramento, vendesse a Igreja ao Banco de Portugal, para com o dinheiro assim obtido, pudesse ser construída a Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Fátima, na Avenida de Berna, que é uma das mais belas manifestações de arte moderna religiosa. Quase todo o espólio da Igreja de S. Julião ficou depositado nas instalações da nova Igreja e inclui muitos documentos da confraria que mandou publicar esta bela edição setecentista de um livro de liturgia, com muitas partituras musicais.

      Venice 1760 - Copper engraving with original outline colour (Very Good, fine original outline colour, a few light small stains, old closed tear in lower corner extending to neatline), 78 x 59 cm (31 x 23 inches). The rare and exquisitely engraved Venice edition of the finest and most important 18th century map of Paraguay, Northern Argentina, and the Río de la Plata Basin, the earliest obtainable edition of Antonio Machoni’s work, revised and enlarged from Juan Francisco d’Ávila’s map. This is a lovely example of the rare Venice edition, printed in 1760, of the earliest obtainable version of Antonio Marchoni’s map of the Río de la Plata-Paraguay Basin, first issued by Giovanni Petroschi in 1732, which was, in turn, an improvement over Juan Francisco d’Ávila’s exceedingly rare 1726 map. It is the most accurate and detailed 18th Century map of the region, issued at a critical historical juncture, just before the Jesuit Order was expelled from its vast empire of inland missions by the Spanish and Portuguese crowns. The map embraces the south-central part of South America from the Atlantic to Pacific Oceans, including most of Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile; extending from Lake Chucuito, Peru, and the source of the Paraguay River at Xareyes Lacas to the Río de la Plata estuary at Buenos Aires and Montevideo. The various Spanish and Portuguese provinces are distinguished with outlining in their own original colours; all major cities and towns, innumerable Jesuit missions, and many Native villages are marked, along with several sites of Jesuit martyrdoms. The map is one of the finest examples of the rich tradition of Jesuit New World cartography and is one of the seminal historical maps of South America. The Story behind the Machoni / D’Ávila Cartography - While the present map, in its various editions, is well known to scholars, a great deal of confusion and misinformation has been written about the origins and publication history. Fortunately, the matter can be largely cleared up here. Our story begins in the early years of the 18th Century, when the Jesuit Order controlled a vast empire of inland missions in the Paraguay region. The Orders’s superiors in Rome had the task of allocating personnel and financial resources to various parts of the region. The problem was that they had absolutely no reliable maps of the area and in many cases had not even a basic conception of the vast distances involved in travelling between missions. In 1710, the Superior General of the Order asked the head of the Paraguay missions, the Father Provincial, to commission an accurate general map of the greater Paraguay region. The task of making the map fell to Father Juan Francisco d’Ávila (1663 - 1733), a native of Buenos Aires who already had over a generation of experience travelling through the region. After further decade of reconnaissance, armed with information supplied by his brothers in various missions, D’Ávila completed his manuscript map in 1722. The manuscript was dispatched to Rome, where, in 1726, it was published under the direction of the Procurator General of the Jesuit Order, Jerónimo de Herrán. This map is astoundingly rare and is considered virtually unobtainable. Enter Father Antonio Machoni (1671 - 1753), a Jesuit originally from Sardinia, who had travelled to Paraguay in 1698 to join the missions. In 1708, he participated in the expedition to the Chaco region led by Esteban de Urizar, the governor of Tucumán. In 1711, he fouded the mission of San Esteban de Miraflores, before becoming a professor and later rector of the Maximum School in Córdoba, Argentina. In 1728, Machoni was summoned to Rome to assume the senior admisntirative role of Procurator General of the Order’s Paraguay missions. There he was given access to D’Avila’s map. As Machoni had gained a vast wealth of geographical intellignece on the greater Paraguay region, many of it derived from his own firsthand reconaissance, he elected to draft a manuscr

        Traité d'optique sur la gradation de la lumière

      XVIII-[2]-368 pages, 7 A Paris, de l'imprimerie de H.L. Guérin & L.F. Delatour, 1760, in-4, XVIII-[2]-368 pages, 7 planches dépliantes, veau tabac de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, double filet sur les coupes, tranches rouges, Seconde édition, posthume et augmentée, de l'Essai d'optique sur la gradation de la lumière, publiée avec un nouveau titre au sein des Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences et établie par l'ami de l'auteur, l'abbé Nicolas Louis de La Caille. Ouvrage d'une très grande importance, rédigé par le fondateur de la photométrie ; Bouguer fut le premier à pouvoir mesurer l'intensité de la Lumière. Dans cette édition, à laquelle l'auteur travailla jusqu'à la veille de sa mort, il présente pour la première fois son invention la plus importante : le photomètre, qui lui permit de mesurer l'intensité lumineuse du soleil et de la lune. "Bouguer's achievement was to see that the eye could be used, not as a meter but as null indicator, i.e, to establish the equality of brightness of two adjacent surfaces (...) In the latter part of the Essai, Bouguer published the second of his great optical discoveries, often called Bouguer's law : in a medium of uniform transparency the light remaining in a collimated beam is an exponential function of the lenght of its part in the medium" (DSB). Ex-libris manuscrit en tête du titre. Coiffe supérieure arasée, coins et coupes usés. Bel exemplaire, les planches seules sont très légèrement brunies. DSB II, 343-44. Norman 283 (pour l'édition originale).

        Nas noticias ecclesiasticas, ou folhas periodicas, que todas as semanas sahem na Corte de Pariz se deo á luz na do dia 2 de Janeiro deste presente anno de 1760, o discurso seguinte.

      N.p. [Lisbon?], n.pr., [1760?]. - 4°, disbound, text block edges sprinkled red. Caption title. In good condition. Old ink "5" in upper blank margin of p. 1. 26 pp. a-b4, c5. *** First Edition in Portuguese? Variant issue. We have compared the present copy to those in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, with 24 pp. The first gatherings, signed a, consisting of pp. 1-8, are identical. After that, the present copy contains some phrases not present in the Biblioteca Nacional copies, resulting in a different setting of type, and one more leaf than in those copies. On a (perhaps) related note, the Advertencia on p. 26 states that in this translation, "certas passagens do Original" were condensed or deleted, and that "o Leitor sabio" who sees the original may judge whether these edits were rightly made.We presume that the copy at the Oliveira Lima Library, also with 24 pp., is the same as those in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. This pamphlet is part of the massive wave of anti-Jesuit propaganda promoted by the future Marquês de Pombal. It discusses the attempted assassination of D. José I, King of Portugal, implicating the Jesuits. Also mentioned are their controversial actions following the 1750 treaty between Spain and Portugal, in which they were said encourage the Guarani Indians to resist the authority of the Portuguese crown in the Jesuit missions of Paraguay, as well as the assertion by the Jesuit Father Gabriel Malagrida that divine intervention caused the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, contradicting Pombal's insistence that the earthquake was a natural event.*** Not in Gonçalves Rodrigues, A tradução em Portugal. Not in Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, Marquês de Pombal: catálogo bibliográfico e iconográfico. Porbase locates three copies, all in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal [calling for 24 pp.]. Not located in Copac. KVK (44 databases searched) locates only the copies cited by Porbase. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
