        RECUEIL D'ANTIQUITES Egyptiennes, Etrusques, Grecques et Romaines

      1761. CAYLUS, Anne Claude Philippe de Tobieres de. RECUEIL D'ANTIQUITES Egyptiennes, Etrusques, Grecques et Romaines. Paris, Chez Duchesne, 1761- 1767. Seven volumes. Second edition of Volume I, with two title pages dated 1756 and 1761. First edition of Volumes II-VII (dated 1756, 1759, 1761, 1762, 1764, and 1767). Xix [3] 348pp. +[104]ff. plates; viii,429[3]pp. +[129]ff. plates; xxxvi,448pp. +[121]ff. plates; xx,418[1]pp. +[125]ff. plates; xxvi[2]348pp. +{121]FF. PLATES; XX, +132ff. plates; [4]xxviii,336pp. +[85]ff. plates. Lacking only 4 out 107 plates to Volume I, one plate out of 121 to Volume III, and seven out of 97 to Volume VII, leaving 818 of 830 numbered plates,(and 829 in total including four unnumbered plates and seven frontispieces). Several plates are out of order or misnumbered. A compendious and learned account of a formidable collection of antiquities, with over 800 plates, each with up to five objects depicted, plus headpieces and initials. Each object is discussed in detail in the text. Le Comte de Caylus was noted for many reasons, not all of them reputable, but primarily as a pioneer in the study of ancient objects, focussing on their subject matter and style with a critical eye. He left his collection to the King. He also studied the archaeological remains of the Gauls, and Volumes III-VII are titled "Recueil d'Antiquites Egyptiennes, Etrusques, Grecques, Romaines et Gauloises." Bound in full calf, the spines in six compartments, gilt with rococo floral tools and two morocco lettering-pieces. Wear to extremities; one board detached from each of Volumes I,II, and III; rear board of VII loose; some superficial splits to hinges and abrasions to boards. Light spotting here and there, faint dampstain to margins of two volumes, discoloration to tops of a few boards, but on the whole internally clean. An extraordinary record of early antiquarian scholarship.

        Natuurlijke Historie of uitvoerige beschrijving der dieren, planten en mineraalen, volgens het samenstel van de Heer Linnaeus.

      - Amsterdam, F. Houttuyn, 1761-1785. 3 sections in 37 volumes. Royal-8vo (215 x 135mm). With 296 beautifully handcoloured folded engraved plates. Uniform contemporary half calf, spines with red, green and black gilt lettered labels (some very minor damage to a few labels). The very scarce handcoloured edition of Houttuyn's famous work, based on Linnaeus's 'Systema naturae'. It is often cited under Linnaeus, although it is more a compilation than a translation and influenced largely many similar works in the vernacular in other countries. The edition with the plates coloured must have been quite small as the publishing price of fl. 136.00 was a considerable amount of money at the time. The handcolouring is exceptionally fine.The work is divided into three parts: 1. Zoology, 18 volumes with 143 plates, subdivided into mammals, birds, amphibians, fishes, insects, worms, molluscs and polypes; 2. Botany, 14 volumes with 105 plates. Minerals, 5 volumes with 48 plates, divided into fossils, stones and minerals. The plates in the mineral section are of great beauty.'An excellent example of this trend towards writing on science in the vernacular with a wide public is provided by Maarten Houttuyn (1720-1798) and his elaborate Dutch 'version' of the twelfth edition of Linnaeaus's 'Systema Naturae', actually a whole independent work, entitled 'Natuurlijke Historie. (1773-1783). Houttuyn was a Dutch physician at Amsterdam. Even though professing to follow the 'Systema naturae', Houttuyn actually opts for a major division of the plant kindom on the basis of a natural system. The taxonomic part of the book is extremely detailed and contains a wealth of incidental information not brought together in this form elsewhery. The total botanical work contains some 8600 pages of text, 105 excellent copper plates illustrating 275 species of plants. The 'Natuurlijke Historie.' as a whole comprises well over 21.500 pages of text . As such it did much to diffuse Linnaean thought and method among the increasingly growing body of the eighteenth-century intellectuals and 'curiosi'' (Stafleu, Linnaeus and the Linnaeans pp. 174-5).Houttuyn's work had quite an impact on Japanese natural history. Some set were brought to Japan with VOC ships and for example the famous Japanese botanist Yokusai Iinuma (1783-1865) made ample use of the work for his twenty volume iconography of Japanese plants.Landwehr. Dutch Books with coloured plates, 82; Souslby 73; see also Boeseman & de Ligny. Martinus Houttyun (1720-1798) and his contributions on the natural sciences, with emphasis on zoology.

Als erster wagte sich Levret an die Operation von Gebärmutterpolypen. Levrets Operationsleistungen auf den Gebieten der Gynäkologie und speziell der Geburtshilfe hatten zur Folge, daß sich ihm Schüler aus ganz Europa zuwandten und sich die von ihm erzielten Fortschritte in rascher Weise auch in anderen Ländern verbreiteten. Levret hatte eine Professur an der Pariser Académie Royale de Chirurgie inne. Außerdem bekleidete er das Amt eines "Accoucheur de la cour" (Geburtshelfer bei Hofe).

        L'Augusta Ducale Basilica dell' Evangelista San Marco

      1761. VISENTINI, A.M. L'Augusta Ducale Basilica dell' Evangelista San Marco Nell'Inclita Dominante di Venezia: Colle notizie del suo innalzamento, sua architettura, musaici, reliquie e preziosità che in essa si contengono; arricchite di alcune annotazioni, e adornate di varie tavole in rame dissegnate da celebre Architetto ed incise da perito Artefice. [10], 64 pp. Illustrated with a full-page engraved frontispiece depicting Saint Mark with the winged lion of Venice set in a niche of the Basilica, an engraved allegorical vignette of Venice printed in red on title-page, a full-page portrait of Dedicatee Marco Foscarini, an elaborate engraved headpiece incorporating the coat-of-arms of Foscarini, a headpiece printed in blue of Piazza San Marco with the Basilica in the background, 1 large folding engraved plan, 1 full-page engraved plate and 6 large folding engraved plates of the Basilica of San Marco, plus three engraved figurative initials and three engraved tailpieces throughout. Large folio, 724 x 535 mm, bound in contemporary blond calf, grey paper over stiff boards, gilt-lettered title-label on spine. Venice: Antonio Zatta, 1761. |~||~||~||~| "One of the most elegant books to be printed in 18th-century Venice" (A. Robison, The Glory of Venice, p. 246). This is Zatta's grand homage to Venice's San Marco Basilica. The deluxe volume is celebrated for the spectacular, large scale engravings of the exterior and interior of the Basilica as well as for the elegant figurative borders which surround each page. The figurative and decorative engraved borders have been attributed to Giovanni Magnini (active 1750s-1780). Magnini was employed by Antonio Zatta for his deluxe editions. "[Magnini's] most elaborate and most famous creation was the fantastic borders for L'Augusta Ducale Basilica, published by Zatta in 1761" (The Glory of Venice p. 246). The large full-page dedication portrait, with exceptional ornamental borders by Magnini, portrays Marco Foscarini, Procurator and Cavaliere of San Marco. Foscarini was elected Doge of the Venetian Republic one year later. Antonio Visentini (1688-1782) Italian architect, painter and engraver, was responsible for the large folding engravings of the Basilica. Visentini was also professor of perspective at the Accademia di Venezia and worked in the artistic and publishing circle of Consul Joseph Smith. Visentini originally printed these engravings in 1726 in the Iconografia della Ducal Basilica; the plates were etched by Vincenzo Mariotti, a pupil of Pozzo. Zatta obtained the original steel plates from the 1726 edition and reused them for the grand format L'Augusta Ducale Basilica of 1761 with the addition of the elegant Rococco Venetian borders by Magnini and the colour printing. Condition: This copy with especially large margins to all sheets, very fine portrait engraving of Foscarini, which is frequently lacking in surviving copies of the work, one folding engraving loose, the spine is worn; a new strip of matching leather attached to lower half of spine in nineteenth century. Printed in various colours; some Magnini borders, headpieces, figurative initials and title vignette printed in red, blue and/or sepia. PROVENANCE: Baron Brownlow, Grantham Library at Belton House with ex-libris. The library at Belton House now represents the second largest library of the National Trust. Robison, A.

        A View of the Falls on the Passaick, or second River, on the Province of New Jersey, The height of the Fall between Eighty and Ninety feet, the River about Eighty Yards broad. Vue de la Cataracte du Passaick, ou second Riviere, dans la province du Nouveau Jersey. La Hauteur de cette Chute est de 80 á 90 pieds, et la Largeur de la Riviere d'environ 40 Toises. Sketch'd on the Spot by his Excellency Governor Pownal. Painted and Engraved by Paul Sandby

      Thomas Jefferys, London 1761 - Copper engraving by Paul Sandby, after Pownall, trimmed along or within platemark. A dramatic view of the Great Falls on the Passaic River in New Jersey. Pownall's image of the Great Falls of the Passaic is designed to show a great natural force of Nature. The swirling rush of water roars amid the jagged rocks and untamed forest. Two little people, barely visible on a precipice overlooking the falls emphasize the greatness of the torrent. Though later the falls would become the source of power for early American industry, here is simply a source of awe. This fine print from the famously rare Scenographia Americana series is after a drawing by Thomas Pownal, lieutenant governor of New Jersey 1755-56 and colonial governor of Massachusetts, 1757-60. 'Pownall held liberal views on the connection of England with its colonies, and was a staunch friend to the American provinces. He explained his sentiments in his famous work on The Administration of the Colonies, 1764, stating that his object was to fuse all these Atlantic and American possessions into one Dominion.'

The work is concluded with a list of 114 "inventioner och werk" [inventions and works] which Polhem had made during his long life. It is compiled by his son Gabriel Polhem. "Christopher Polhem, byname of Christopher Polhammer (born December 18, 1661, Gotland, Sweden-died August 30/31, 1751, Stockholm?), Swedish mechanical and mining engineer. From 1693 to 1709 he devised water-powered machinery that mechanized operations at the great Falun copper mine. In 1704 he built a factory in Stjaernsund that used division of labour, hoists, and conveyor belts to minimize manual labour, anticipating mass-production techniques later adopted in America and England. His alphabet of machines demonstrated the basic elements of mechanism used by later machine builders. His rolling mill was later adapted by Henry Cort to the production of wrought iron in England."

        Essay sur l'histoire générale et sur les moeurs et l'esprit des Nations d EDITION ORIGINALE

      S.l. [Geneve]: S.n. [Cramer], 1761. Fine. S.n. [Cramer], S.l. [Geneve] 1761-1763, 8 tomes en 8 Vol. in-8 (11,5x20cm), reliés. - Edition partly original. This is the latest edition to carry the title Essay on the general history (that of 1764 only corrected the faults reported to the errata) before choosing the final title by Voltaire in the edition of 1771: Test on manners and the spirit of nations. The edition volumes formed the XI to XVIII of the complete works, it has obviously been edited separately but was part of the corpus of Voltaire's works published by Cramer. Bound in full marbled contemporary sheepskin. Back with nerves decorated. 2 parts of title and volume number in red morocco for each volume. Amateur small restorations to the head caps of volumes I, II, II, V, VI, VII and VII and two tail caps. Most corners bumped. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition en partie originale. C'est la dernière édition à porter le titre Essay sur l'histoire générale (celle de 1764 ne corrigea que les fautes signalées à l'errata) avant le choix du titre définitif par Voltaire dans l'édition de 1771 : Essai sur les moeurs et l'esprit des nations. L'édition formait les tomes XI à XVIII des oeuvres complètes, elle a bien évidemment été éditée à part mais s'intégrait dans le corpus des oeuvres de Voltaire édité par Cramer. Reliure en pleine basane marbrée d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. 2 pièces de titre et une de tomaison en maroquin rouge pour chaque volume. Petites restaurations amateur aux coiffes de tête des tomes I, II, II, V, VI, VII et VII et pour deux coiffes de queue. La plupart des coins émoussés.  L'ouvrage est bien davantage qu'une histoire du monde depuis Charlemagne. On sait par ailleurs que toutes les éditions du Second Empire jusqu'à aujourd'hui même ont été expurgées des idées défendues par Voltaire et contraires à l'image de l'auteur construite par la modernité. Une des thèses centrales est la perversité de la religion chrétienne, et plus particulièrement catholique, dont l'enseignement est manifestement erroné. Les races selon Voltaire ne pourraient découler d'une seule source, elles sont trop hétérogènes. L'essai sur les moeurs contient en effet toutes les thèses d'un racisme et d'un antisémitisme qui s'épanouira au XXe siècle et Voltaire s'y montre non seulement mysogine mais également antisémite et xénophobe. Or cette oeuvre est importante pour Voltaire qui ne cessera durant quinze années d'y travailler, et s'il se montre en faveur d'un despotisme éclairé, ce choix est mûrement réfléchi. L'ouvrage de Voltaire est fort important, car il montre les paradoxes d'un homme épris de justice (Le traité sur la tolérance), un homme des Lumières, mais agité lui-même des préjugés de son époque. Le premier volume débute par une étude des Chinois, puis des Arabes, avec de longs chapitres sur Mahomet et l'Islam.  "Il est difficile de mesurer ce que l'histoire doit à l'Essai sur les moeurs. La présence de V. dans l'évolution historiographique est certaine. Son influence est plus délicate à circonscrire ; elle varie selon les générations et selon les écoles » (L. Trenard).

        Le Voyageur philosophe dans un Pays inconnu aux Habitans de la Terre. Multa incredibilia vera. Multa credibilia falsa

      'depens de l'editeur,', Amsterdam 1761 - Two volumes, duodecimo, with bookplates from the 'Bibliotheque de Monspey'; elegant volumes in mottled sheep, with banded and gilt panelled spine, some wear to front joints, and chipping at extremities of the spine. First edition of a scarce lunar utopia. This early tale of space-travel is in fact a wonderful Enlightenment document of faith in the perfect society.Little is known about the author, but his work is an extended meditation on Enlightenment themes of society and the natural. Interestingly, the narrator seeks to establish his credentials as man of the world and experienced traveller by claiming to have journeyed to many parts of the world, including a couple of abortive attempts 'de débarquer dans les Terres Australes.' Given this pedigree, it can come as no surprise to the reader that the Voyager so easily journeys to the moon, nor that he is capable of giving such a wonderfully thorough account of Selenite society.The lunar city Sélénopolis displays the standard traits of symmetry and order, which are chronicled with uncritical sincerity by the awe-struck visitor: 'La comparaison de l'état social et de l'état naturel: dans l'absence du mien et du tien, il n'y a pas de vice, pas de crime, pas de crainte de la mort? C'est le Siècle des Lumières parfaitement réalisé' (Hartig & Soboul, Pour une histoire de l'utopie en France).Having discussed their morals, advances in science and all-round goodness, the traveller sadly takes his leave, happy only in that all of the notes he has taken will be of such inestimable use 'pour l'agrément, l'utilité & le bonheur de l'humanité, dans le dessein d'en enrichir ma Patrie'.

First edition of Jean Barbault?s (1705-66) large work on ancient monuments in Rome, which also contains three plates with wall paintings from Herculaneum, copied after ?L?Antichita di Ercolano? This work, and his work on the modern monuments of Rome, are attempts to challenge Piranesi?s ?La Vedute di Roma?, published at the same time. At least 26 of the extra plates at the end, and perhaps also the map of Rome, are from Joachim von Sandrart?s ?Des altern und neuen Roms Schau-Platz?, Nürnberg 1685. The remaining plates are by various artists, for example Israel Silvestre, Adam Perelle and Piranesi. The Swedish engraver and medal maker Carl G. Fehrman (1746-98) came to Rome in 1775 and stayed there together with Sergel, Masreliez and other Swedish artists until he returned to Sweden in 1778. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

El Tratado aborda el descubrimiento y la antigüedad de las aguas de Sacedón, en Guadalajara, sus propiedades y el procedimiento para usar estas aguas para el tratamiento de diferentes enfermedades. Dice Pizzi en el prólogo: “Este Antiquissimo Monumento de la Medicina de nuestros Arabes; este Testimonio de su saber; y esta Prueba de las ventajas de unas Aguas que fueron tan celebradas en la antiguedad es una obra que por su antiguedad, doctrina, y objeto puede hacer honor á la memoria de nuestros antiguos Medicos; ser util á la Sociedad.” Palau, 3135 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        EL REY. POR QUANTO CONFORMANDOSE MI RELIGIOSO ZELO, Y DEVOCION AL MISTERIO DE LA IMMACULADA CONCEPCION DE LA VIRGEN SANTISSIMA NUESTRA SEÑORA, CON EL QUE IGUALMENTE HAN MANTENIDO, Y CONSERVADO SIEMPRE MIS REYNOS, Y VASSALLOS...[caption title]. [bound with, as issued:] CLEMENS EPISCOPUS SERVUS SERVORUM DEI, AD PERPETUAM REI MEMORIAM. CLEMENTE OBISPO SIERVO DE LOS SIERVOS DE DIOS, PARA PERPETUA MEMORIA [caption title]

      [Madrid. 1761].. [2],8pp. plus integral blank leaf of first title. Folio. Dbd. The second title is bound between the printed text and the integral blank leaf of the first title. First title: Maltese cross at head. Contemporary ink manuscript inscriptions and later pencil inscription at top of first page. Accomplished in manuscript (see below). Integral blank leaf with additional manuscript inscription on recto, verso blank. Second title: Parallel text in Latin and Spanish, with small foliated woodcut initials at beginning of each text. Testament of authenticity at end of texts signed in manuscript, with paper seal attached at bottom of p.8. Both titles: Extremely light dampstaining in margins, occasional light soiling and ink stains. In very good condition. A rare royal cedula issued by Charles III, King of Spain, confirming his Catholic faith and directing secular and religious officials throughout the Spanish Indies to promulgate a papal text concerning the Virgin Mary. This copy of the decree is foliated with, as intended, Pope Clement XIV's eight-page text. Originally delivered in Rome on Nov. 10, 1760 and translated into Spanish on Feb. 10, 1761, the papal text is here printed in parallel Latin and Spanish, with statements in print and manuscript testifying to the authenticity of the text and the translation. A paper seal of authenticity accompanies the apostolic notary's signature. Both the King's decree and the Papal brief were to be distributed to the viceroys of New Spain, Peru, and New Granada as well as presidents, governors, archbishops, bishops, and prelates throughout the Spanish Indies. These government and religious officials were ordered to ensure the distribution of the royal decree and accompanying papal text, and the continued adulation of the mystery of the cult of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. This copy of the royal decree, accomplished in manuscript at Aranjuez, Spain on April 16, 1771, is signed by Juan Manuel Crespo, with the additional annotation: "Yo El Rey. Por mandado del Rey Nuestro Señor." A manuscript inscription on the blank recto of the integral blank leaf of the first title, dated Feb. 27, 1762, confirms that the decree and accompanying text had been reviewed by the President and other high officials in Santiago de Chile. A rare proclamation ordering the dissemination of a specific papal text throughout the Americas, complete with the accompanying text as issued and additional manuscript inscriptions certifying its receipt in Santiago de Chile. The combination of such a proclamation, accompanied by the cited text itself as issued, is remarkably rare. Not on OCLC, Medina (BHA), or Palau.
