        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]

      Frankfurt/M., Johann Gottlieb Garbe, 1761. - Erstlingswerk des damals 25jährigen. Auch wenn Pfeffel sich in der späteren Phase seines Schaffens zunehmend mit ernstzunehmenden politischen, sozialen und philosophischen Themen beschäftigte und seine Lyrik und Fabeln auch als ein Instrument der politischen Aufklärung ansah, so entfernte er sich stilistisch nur wenig von seinen frühen anakreontischen Werken. „Diese Dichtungen bewegen sich meist in der Idyllischen Schäferwelt des Daphnis und der Cloe, feiern in überschwenglichem Stil das tugendhafte Verhalten der Menschen, postulieren sein Streben nach edler Einfalt und Frömmigkeit. Die naive Empfindsamkeit, mit der er seine religiös gefärbte Moral vorträgt, hat sich in Pfeffels Dichtungen nie ganz verloren" (Böttcher u. a., S. 382). Sehr selten, worauf schon Meusebach in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts hingewiesen hat (vgl. Meusebach I 2107). Seit 1950 nur ein Exemplar im JAP und nur drei weitere im deutschen Handel nachweisbar. – Nur vereinzelt gering stockfleckig. Gutes Exemplar. – Goed. IV/I 654, 1. Hayn/G. VIII 115.

        Tivoli, Innenansicht der Wasserfälle in der Villa des Mecenas, mit einem Zeichner und einem Jäger im Vordergrund.

      . Sepia-Aquarell und etwas Pinsel in Grau, über Bleistift, mit einzelner schwarzbrauner Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Velin, rechts unten monogrammiert "F. K." 34,9:26,5 cm. Papier etwas vergilbt.. Kaisermann transkribiert hier gewissermaßen eine Radierung Johann Christian Reinharts (1761-1847) aus dem Jahre 1793 in eine Zeichnung. Lediglich bei der Gestaltung der Figurengruppe und auch des Pflanzenbewuchses hat sich Kaisermann einige Abweichungen erlaubt (vgl. Nagler 12, Nr. 23; vgl. Andresen I, Nr. 58). Um unter der Anleitung von L. Ducros zu arbeiten, war Kaisermann 1789 nach Rom gekommen. Die Vedutenmalerei seines Lehrers wurde für ihn maßgebend. Nach einem mehrjährigen Aufenthalt in Neapel ließ er sich 1797 in Rom nieder. Um 1800 nahm er für sechs Jahre den erst 19jährigen Künstler B. Pinelli (1781-1835) in seinen Dienst, damit dieser ihm die Figurenstaffage in seine Bilder zeichne. Gemeinsam unternahmen sie Studienfahrten in die nähere Umgebung. Sie widmeten sich u.a. intensiv der Darstellung von Ruinen und Landschaften, den Wasserfällen von Tivoli und Terni, den Patriziervillen des Albanergebirges usw. in Aquarellen und Umrißradierungen. Seit 1808 hatte er einen Neffen, Franz Knebel, als Gehilfen, der am 16. Januar.1822 in Rom starb. Ein gleichnamiger Neffe wurde sein Nachfolger, wurde Kaisermanns Erbe und verkaufte 1835 den Nachlaß. Mit dem Vertrieb seiner Veduten an begeisterte Romreisende war Kaisermann sehr erfolgreich. Seine Kunst wurde von den Zeitgenossen allerdings kontrovers beurteilt. A.W. von Schlegel (1767-1845) zählte ihn 1805 in einem Schreiben an Goethe zu den besten römischen Landschaftsmalern, während J.A. Koch (1768 - 1839) über seine Kunst sinngemäß sagte, sie sei keinen Schuß Pulver wert.

        Il Forestiere Istruito delle cose piu' rare di Architettura

      1761. BERTOTTI-SCAMOZZI, Ottavio. Il forestiere istruito delle cose piu rare di architettura, e di alcune Pitture della citta di Vicenza. Dialogo di Ottavio Bertotti Scamozzi dedicato al nob. Sig. Marchese Mario Capra. 119, [1] pp. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece portrait of the dedicatee Marchese Mario Capra, an engraved title-page vignette, 36 plates engraved by Cristoforo dell'Acqua after drawings by the Author, of which 32 are folding and four are full-page, plus woodcut head- and tailpieces, and woodcut initials in various designs and sizes. 4to., 225 x 170 mm, bound in Italian nineteenth-century half vellum over marbled paper boards, author and title gilt on red morocco spine label. In Vicenza: Giovambattista Vendramini Mosca, 1761. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. A guide to Vicenza presented in dialog between two characters, Leandro the local and Guglielmo (William) from London. The text is heavily illustrated with plates to scale in Vicentine and English feet, reproducing architecture by Andrea Palladio including two superb interior views of the Teatro Olimpico, and designs by Vincenzo Scamozzi, whose surname Bertotti added to his own after winning a contest for a Scamozzi scholarship. Thanks to the generous patronage of Marchese Mario Capra, to whom this work is dedicated, Bertotti-Scamozzi (1719-90) had an excellent education in architecture and a successful career; J.J. Volkmann, author of the Historische-Kritische Nachrichten von Italien (Leipzig, 1770-71), recommended this very text to Goethe as one of the best on Italian cities, and the Author's four-volume Fabbriche ed i disegni di Andrea Palladio (Vicenza, 1776-83), financed by the dwindling coffers of the Scamozzi prize, remains a seminal study of Palladian architecture. This beautiful book is rare enough that a facsimile edition was printed of it in 1968. Evidence of former bookplate on front pastedown. Repair to short tear at fore-edge of one leaf, and two folding plates (VII, VIII) repaired, else a fine copy. Millard, Italian 19. Berlin Katalog 2709. Fowler 43. RIBA, Early Printed Books 262.

Sysang, nach Nothnagel und zahlreichen Holzschnittvignetten im Text. Kl.-8°. Schöner Lederbd d. Z. mit Rückentitel, reicher Rückenvergoldung und königsblauen Vorsätzen.

      Frankfurt/M., Johann Gottlieb Garbe, 1761.. . Erstlingswerk des damals 25jährigen. Auch wenn Pfeffel sich in der späteren Phase seines Schaffens zunehmend mit ernstzunehmenden politischen, sozialen und philosophischen Themen beschäftigte und seine Lyrik und Fabeln auch als ein Instrument der politischen Aufklärung ansah, so entfernte er sich stilistisch nur wenig von seinen frühen anakreontischen Werken. "Diese Dichtungen bewegen sich meist in der Idyllischen Schäferwelt des Daphnis und der Cloe, feiern in überschwenglichem Stil das tugendhafte Verhalten der Menschen, postulieren sein Streben nach edler Einfalt und Frömmigkeit. Die naive Empfindsamkeit, mit der er seine religiös gefärbte Moral vorträgt, hat sich in Pfeffels Dichtungen nie ganz verloren" (Böttcher u. a., S. 382). Sehr selten, worauf schon Meusebach in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts hingewiesen hat (vgl. Meusebach I 2107). Seit 1950 nur ein Exemplar im JAP und nur drei weitere im deutschen Handel nachweisbar. - Nur vereinzelt gering stockfleckig. Gutes Exemplar. - Goed. IV/I 654, 1. Hayn/G. VIII 115.
