        Catalogo delle opere date finora alla luce da Giovanni Battista Piranesi

      1761 - tredicesimo stato di ventisette, databile al 1768. Magnifica prova, impressa ad inchiostro bruno su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio", rifilata al rame ai lati ma con margini in alto ed in basso, leggere ossidazioni e pieghe di carta visibili al verso, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Abitudine comune di molti editori nel XVIII secolo, era redigere e dare alle stampe cataloghi o listini - prezzi delle opere grafiche che offrivano in vendita, allo scopo pubblicitario di promulgarle, facilitarne le ordinazioni, ricevere sottoscrizioni. Piranesi non si limitò soltanto a realizzare un semplice catalogo scritto, ma addirittura ne illustrò uno, meglio conosciuto come "catalogo inciso", che pubblicò per la prima volta nel 1761. L’occasione per la stampa del catalogo fu quella della nuova sede di Palazzo Tomati, dove andò a stabilirsi nel 1761. Il primo catalogo conteneva l’elenco delle 59 vedute della serie Vedute di Roma, la lista dei libri pubblicati e delle altre stampe realizzate. Il catalogo veniva di volta in volta aggiornato con l’aggiunta del nuovo materiale in vendita, producendo un notevole numero di stati differenti, di cui ben 27 sono ora noti. Il catalogo inciso costituisce un elemento fondamentale per la datazione delle opere del Piranesi, strumento insostituibile di studio e ricerca, la cui analisi degli stati permette di datare approssimativamente anche tutte le opere tarde dell’artista. Nella realizzazione di quest’opera, che a ragione viene considerata come l’ennesimo capolavoro, Piranesi studia soprattutto l’aspetto decorativo. La tecnica usata è la stessa che ritroviamo in alcuni suoi libri; su uno sfondo architettonico crea un effetto trompe oeil, disegnando degli spilli che fermano alcuni cartigli contenenti titoli delle sue opere. Il primo piano è costituito da rovine e frammenti scultorei, mentre lo spazio bianco era volutamente inserito per aggiungere in seguito altre voci. Gli esemplari del catalogo sono notevolmente più rari delle altre incisioni del Piranesi, probabilmente per la tiratura limitata, ma anche per il fatto che i cataloghi venivano considerati materiale pubblicitario quindi effimero, e non da conservarsi. Alcuni di questi, recano incise dediche ad amici e protettori dell’artista, mentre su altri sovente si trovano annotazioni a penna con opere pubblicate da poco aggiunte a mano, spesso autografa. Rarissimo. Etching and engraving, circa 176. Likely been exemplary in the thirtheenth state of twenty-seven, dating back to 1767. A very good impression, printed in brown ink on laid paper with watermark contemporary "double encircled fluers de lys", trimmed to the platemark or with thin margins, light oxidation and paper folds visible on the reverse, otherwise in good condition. Common practice of many publishers in the eighteenth century, was to draw up and give the prints catalogs or price lists - prices of graphic works offered for sale, for the purpose of advertising them, facilitate their orders and obtain subscriptions. Piranesi was not limited to make a simple written catalog, but actually illustrated one, better known as catalog the way, which he published for the first time in 1761. The occasion for the printing of the catalog was that of the new Palazzo Tomati, where he went to settle in 1761. The first catalog contained a list of the 59 views of the series Views of Rome, the list of published books and other prints made, that catalog was updated from time to time with the addition of new material for sale, producing a large number of different states, of which 27 are now known. The catalog recorded is a key element for the dating of the works of Piranesi, irreplaceable means of study and research, the analysis of which states can also determine the approximate all the late works of the artist. In the realization of this work, which is rightly regarded as yet another masterpiece, Piranesi mainly studies the decorative aspect that it had to take. The te

        Catalogo delle opere

      1761 - Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1761, firmata in lastra in alto a sinistra. Esemplare nel probabile ventunesimo stato di ventisette, databile al 1775. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "incudine e martello nel doppio cerchio sormontato da corona e scritta Fabriano" (Robison 56), irregolarmente rifilato al rame, margini aggiunti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Le Vedute di Roma elencate sono 120, mentre sono aggiunte opere come la Pianta di Roma, in vendita a paoli 15, la Colonna Traiana, senza indicazione di prezzo, e la Schola Italica di Picturae, in vendita a 6 Zecchini. Rarissimo. Catalogo delle opere date finora alla luce da Giovanni Battista Piranesi Abitudine comune di molti editori nel diciottesimo secolo era quella di redigere e dare alle stampe cataloghi o listini prezzi delle opere grafiche che offrivano in vendita, allo scopo pubblicitario di promulgarle, facilitarne le ordinazioni, ricevere sottoscrizioni. Il Piranesi non si limitò ad un semplice catalogo scritto, realizzandone uno illustrato, meglio conosciuto come catalogo inciso, che pubblicò per la prima volta nel 1761. L’occasione fu quella della nuova sede di Palazzo Tomati, dove andò a stabilirsi proprio nel 1761. Il primo catalogo conteneva l’elenco delle 59 vedute della serie Vedute di Roma prodotte sino ad allora, comprendendo anche la lista dei libri e delle altre stampe realizzate; tale catalogo venne di volta in volta aggiornato con l’aggiunta del nuovo materiale in vendita, producendo un notevole numero di stati differenti, di cui ben 27 sono ora noti. Il catalogo inciso costituisce un elemento fondamentale per la datazione delle opere del Piranesi, strumento insostituibile di studio e ricerca, la cui analisi degli stati permette di datare approssimativamente tutte le opere tarde dell’artista. Nella realizzazione di questa opera, che a ragione viene considerata come l’ennesimo capolavoro, il Piranesi studia soprattutto l’aspetto decorativo che la stessa doveva assumere. La tecnica usata è la stessa di quella che ritroviamo in alcuni suoi libri; su uno sfondo architettonico egli da vita ad un effetto trompe oeil, disegnando degli spilli che fermano alcuni cartigli contenenti titoli delle sue opere. Il primo piano è costituito da rovine e frammenti scultorei, mentre lo spazio bianco è volutamente inserito per aggiungere in seguito altre voci. Gli esemplari del catalogo sono notevolmente più rari delle altre incisioni, probabilmente sia per la scarsa tiratura, sia perché considerati effimero materiale pubblicitario, e quindi non conservati. Alcune prove recano incise dediche ad amici e protettori dell’artista, altre annotazioni a penna di voci pubblicate da poco, aggiunte a mano autografa. Etching with engraving, circa 1761 signed on plate at upper left. Example presumably in the twenty-first state of twenty-seven, datable from 1775. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper with "anvil and hammer in double circle surmounted by crown and text Fabriano" watermark (Robison 56), irregularly trimmed at the platemark, added margins, overall in very good conditions. There are 120 prints listed in the Vedute di Roma while other works have been added, such as the Pianta di Roma, on sale at the price of 15 paoli, the Colonna Traiana, not priced and, finally, the Schola Italica di Picturae, on sale at the price of 16 sequins. Extremely rare. A common custom among many editors in the eighteenth century was to compile and print catalogues or price lists of the graphic works they sold with the promotional intent of advertising them, uphold orders and obtain subscriptions. Piranesi did not limit himself to a common written catalogue but even published an illustrated one, better known as the engraved catalogue, which he issued for the first time in 1761. This happened in the circumstance of his moving to new premises at the Tomati Palace. The first catalogue included the list of the fifty-nine views belonging to the [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

With the Exlibris - bookplate of William Crosbie, Lord Brandon, 1st Earl of Glandore, to the front pastedown. Thomas Leland (1722–1785) was an Irish historian, translator and academic and the author of the early gothic novel, "Longsword, Earl of Salisbury: An Historical Romance", published in 1762. He was born in Dublin and educated at Thomas Sheridan's school and then at Trinity College, where he became Professor of Oratory in 1763. He translated the Orations of Demosthenes in three volumes and wrote a life of Philip of Macedon in 1758. He wrote an influential "History of Ireland from the Invasion of Henry II" in 1773. His portrait, by John Dean, is held by the National Portrait Gallery. Leland was made a fellow of Trinity College Dublin in 1746. He was ordained a Church of Ireland priest in 1748, he served as vicar in Bray, Co. Wicklow, in 1773 he was appointed Vicar of St. Ann's Church, Dawson Street, in Dublin. (Wikipedia) ________________________________________ Provenance: Earl of Glandore, in the County of Kerry, was a title in the Peerage of Ireland. It was created in 1776 for the Irish politician William Crosbie, 2nd Baron Brandon. He was the son of Sir Maurice Crosbie, who had previously represented County Kerry in the Irish House of Commons for over forty years, and was raised to the peerage as Baron Brandon in 1758. The first Baron was succeeded by his son, the second Baron. He was a member of the Irish Parliament for Ardfert. In 1771 he was created Viscount Crosbie, of Ardfert in the County of Kerry, and in 1776 he was further honoured when he was made Earl of Glandore, in the County of Cork. Both titles were in the Peerage of Ireland. On his death the titles passed to his son, the second Earl. He sat in the House of Lords as one of the original twenty-eight Irish Representative Peers. He was childless and on his death in 1815 the viscountcy and earldom became extinct. He was succeeded in the barony by his cousin, the fourth Baron. He was the son of the Very Reverend the Hon. Maurice Crosbie, Dean of Limerick, younger son of the first Baron. Lord Brandon was a clergyman and served as Rector of Castle Island in County Kerry. He had no surviving male issue and on his death in 1832 the barony became extinct as well. The family seat was Ardfert Abbey, Ardfert, County Kerry. (Wikipedia) ________________________________________ Philip II of Macedon (Phílippos II ho Makedon; 382–336 BC) was the king (Basileus) of the Ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon from 359 BC until his assassination in 336 BC. He was a member of the Argead dynasty, the third son of King Amyntas III, and father of Alexander the Great and Philip III. Philip was the youngest son of the king Amyntas III and Eurydice I. In his youth (c. 368 – 365 BC), Philip was held as a hostage in Thebes, which was the leading city of Greece during the Theban hegemony. While a captive there, Philip received a military and diplomatic education from Epaminondas, became eromenos of Pelopidas, and lived with Pammenes, who was an enthusiastic advocate of the Sacred Band of Thebes. In 364 BC, Philip returned to Macedon. The deaths of Philip's elder brothers, King Alexander II and Perdiccas III, allowed him to take the throne in 359 BC. Originally appointed regent for his infant nephew Amyntas IV, who was the son of Perdiccas III, Philip managed to take the kingdom for himsel

        GIPHANTIA: OR, A VIEW OF WHAT HAS PASSED, WHAT IS NOW PASSING, AND DURING THE PRESENT CENTURY, WHAT WILL PASS, IN THE WORLD

      London: Printed for Robert Horsfield, 1761. First English edition. 16mo., [Part I] 130 pp.[ dated 1761]; [Part II] 126 pp. [dated 1760], 1 p. advert.Contemporary full calf, with the spine expertly repaired; board edges are rubbed. Previous owner's name on endpaper, few light pencil notations, light foxing and offsetting to endpapers and tile page from the binder's glue. See PHOTOGRAPHY: ESSAYS & IMAGES (1980) edited by Beaumont Newhall, p. 13-14 "In 1760 the French writer Charles François Tiphaigne de la Roche wrote a novel that today would be considered science fiction. Titled Giphantie, an anagram of his name, it describes his imaginary travels... He was lifted into the air and transported half unconscious, to a beautiful garden in a strange land. There he met a Spirit who said, 'I am the Prefect of this island which is called Giphantie.' With the Prefect as guide, Tiphaigne explored the wonders of 'the island.'" In GIPHANTIA, Chapter XVII, Part I, The author prophecies the fixing of transient images of nature by the action of light. "Thou knowest that the rays of light, reflected from different bodies, make a picture and paint the bodies upon all polished surfaces, on the retina of the eye, for instance, on water, on glass. The elementary spirits have studied to fix these transient images: they have composed a most subtle matter, very viscous, and proper to harden and dry, by the help of which a picture is made in the twinkle of an eye. They do over this matter a piece of canvas, and hold it before the objects they have in mind to paint. The first effect of the canvas is that of a mirror; there are seen upon it all the bodies far and near, whose image the light can transmit. But what the glass cannot do, the canvas, by means of the viscous matter, retains the images. The mirror shows the objects exactly; but keeps none; our canvases show them with the same exactness, and retains them all. This impression of the images is made the first instant they are received on the canvas, which is immediately carried away into some dark place; an hour after, the subtle matter dries, and you have a picture so much the more the valuable, as it cannot be imitated by art nor damaged by time." This is considered a cornerstone book in any collection of photographic literature, and photography's first fictional work.Roosens and Salu No. 10421.

      [Lisboa]: n.p., 1761. First edition. Removed. A very good sharp copy, removed from a larger volume, inked page number to rectos.. 4 pp. Law concerning the Jesuits, their expulsion from Portugal, and the seizure of their assets by the crown which began with the proclamation in September 1759, and much enriched the Portuguese Crown. The king calls the Jesuits "notorious rebels, traitors, enemies and aggressors who had been, and are still currently against my real person and states." The expulsion's last act would come a few months later when the Jesuit Gabriel Malagrida, said to be involved in the attempted assassination of the king, (known as the Távora affair), who had been imprisoned for nearly two years, was finally executed in late September.

Image measure 15" x 21.5" This impressive chart by Desnos and Brion de la Tour depicts the astronomical model developed by Nicolaus Copernicus. The Copernican Heliocentrism shows a stationary Sun at the center of the Universe with all the planets rotating around it. The Copernicus model is believed to have given birth to modern astronomy as it departed from the prevailing Ptolemaic system, which for centuries placed the Earth at the center. The whole is surrounded by text with remarks and descriptions of the map and enclosed in a decorative border which was only added to the deluxe editions of his atlas. The map is in good condition with minor wear and creasing along the centerfold. Centerfold split at bottom, not affecting printed image. Original plate mark is visible.Louis Charles Desnos (1725 - 1805) was a cartographer and globe maker from Paris, France. He was the Royal Globe Maker for the Kind of Denmark, Christian VII, and published a large number of maps during his time. Louis Brion de la Tour (1756-1823) is best known for his 'Atlas General' published in collaboration with Louis Charles Desnos. He held the title of Royal Cartographer to the King of France. This is an uncommon example of their collaborative work.

        Recherches sur l'origine du despotisme oriental

      Geneva: [N.S.] 1761 - First edition. 17 cm, 12mo. Collated: xxxii, 435 pp. Full period mottled calf. Gilt spine and rule. All edges washed red. Marbled end pages. Hardcover. Good binding and cover. Tails of boards starting. Minor edge wear. Clean, unmarked pages. Nicolas Antoine Boulanger was an Enlightenment French philosopher, cartographer, and engineer. Boulanger had some fluency in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Syriac, Chaldean, and Arabic. Intended as an introduction and key to Montesquieu's L'Esprit des Loix, Boulanger's theological-political treatise was edited and first published posthumously in 1761 by the Baron d'Holbach. This, his most famous work, Research into the Origins of Oriental Despotism, speculates on the origin of human societies. The main theme described aptly by Paul Sadrin, is that "Man, after escaping the Flood, was terrified.Everything was gradually spoiled by forgetfulness and imposture - the forgetfulness of most men and the imposture of a few leaders. Religion, which had only been the memory of the disaster and the commemoration of the "renewed world," became the Revelation." This was in Boulanger's eyes the worst of crimes, as the Revelation deprives man of his humanity and gives birth to the cruelest of despotisms, the theocratic regime, of which God is the monarch and the monarch is God.What matters to Boulanger is to expose the direct relationship between theocracy and civil despotism." (p. 36-37) Sadrin, Paul. "NICOLAS-ANTOINE BOULANGER (1722?59)". The Yale University Library Gazette 71.1/2 (1996): 32?42. The value to the modern reader is perhaps greater in what it says about how Boulanger, and those he influenced, thought about how society is constructed and the destruction of freedom within society.
