        Carceri D"invenzione plate II: 2nd State

      Rome: Piranesi G B, 1761. Carceri, plate first added to Second Edition. Etching with engraving, on wove paper, 565 x 415mm., an excellent impression, with wide margins, slight wear on soft central horizontal fold, a few short tears at sheet edges, well outside the platemark, partially laid on support, framed and glazed, This plate was not included by Piranesi in the first (light) edition of 14 plates issued by Bouchard which make up the Carceri. When Piranesi rssued his reworked (dark) version in 1761 he added two plates not previously issued, of which this is one. It is therefore, strictly speaking, the first edition of this plate - but is referred to by Robison (207) as Second Edition because 14 of the other plates issued with it were second editions. This plate is generally described as no 2 in the series, because of the presence of the inscribed Roman Numeral II in the top right corner of the third and subsequent states. However, this print is of the second state, before the addition of the numerals. This second state is distinguished from the first state by the addition of the signature, address and price in the bottom margin. (Only one copy of the first state is known to exist - that in the Marciana Library, Venice). emailed photos available on request.. Illus. by Piranesi G B. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        'Del Castello Dell' Acqua Giulia', original copperplate engraving from "Le Rovine del Castello dell' Acqua Giulia" (1761)

      Rome. ca. 1770s. Fine. 'Del Castello Dell' Acqua Giulia', or, 'Concerning the Fountainhead of the Acqua Giulia, Rome: map of the acqueduct system and plans and details of the acqueduct'. c. 1770s copperplate engraving from "Le Rovine del Castello dell' Acqua Giulia", originally published in Rome, 1761. Engraving measures 16 x 10.5 inches (40.5 x 27 cm), in an archival, museum-quality mat measuring 24 x 20 inches (61 x 51 cm). A fine plate in fine mat. Giovanni Battista (also Giambattista) Piranesi (1720-1778) was an Italian artist famous for his etchings of Rome and of fictitious and atmospheric "prisons" (Carceri d'Invenzione). Piranesi's enthusiasm for Rome and superior abilities made him able to faithfully imitate the actual remains of a fabric; his invention in catching the design of the original architect provided the missing parts; his masterful skill at engraving introduced groups of vases, altars, tombs that were absent in reality; and his broad and scientific distribution of light and shade completed the picture, creating a striking effect from the whole view.

        The History of the Proceedings in the Case of Margaret, Commonly called Peg, only lawful Sister to John Bull, Esq

      London: Printed for W. Owen, near Temple Bar, 1761 First edition. Contemporary pale polished calf, spine with raised bands and simple gilt rules, contemporary red morocco label. . Octavo. Title a little soiled, and the occasional small stain, but generally a fine, fresh copy. In dark green cloth clamshell case. Until recently this work , a witty political satire, was usually attributed to Adam Ferguson but David Raynor, in his edition (Cambridge University Press, 1982), has cogently argued that the work is in fact by David Hume. Hume had written to the Rev. Alexander Carlyle of Inveresk on 3 February 1761, claiming that he had written the work, but Carlyle thought that this was a device to direct attention away from Ferguson as the likely author. The evidence ? and there is a lot of it ? is unclear, but many scholars are persuaded that the work is by Hume. The ledgers of William Strahan in the British Library reveal that he was the printer of the work, and that the Edinburgh published Patrick Neill participated silently in the publication (Add Mss. 48803A, f.43r). Strahan printed 1000 copies of the first edition, which was published on 3 January 1761; he printed 750 copies of the second edition, published on 11 February 1761.

It is mostly as an essayist that Addison is remembered today. Addison began writing essays quite casually. In April 1709, his childhood friend, Richard Steele, started The Tatler. Addison inspired him to write this essay. Addison contributed 42 essays to while Steele wrote 188. On 2 January 1711, The Tatler was discontinued. On 1 March 1711, The Spectator was published, and it continued until 6 December 1712. The Spectator was issued daily and achieved great popularity. It exercised a great deal of influence over the reading public of the time. In The Spectator, Addison soon became the leading partner.

With figures of all plants designed and engraved by the author. The whole from nature only.

      London, the author, 1761-1775. 26 volumes bound in 13. Folio (445 x 290mm), with 1546 engraved plates on 1544 leaves. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated new spines in 7 compartments with red and green gilt lettered label, frontcover with gilt ornament. First editions (excepting volumes 1, 4 and 5 which are in the second edition) of the greatest and largest botanical publication of the eighteenth century. The work is in complete state exceptionally rare and the present copy is one of the most complete ones to come on the market. In our catalogue 285 (2006) item 96 we offered a complete copy with 1548 engraved plates. Most sets contain a mixture of first and later issues. Our copy lacks plate 13 of volume 1; plate 50 of volume 21 (in its place is bound plate 36 which is double), and a text leaf in volume 2. A few copies of the work were also issued with the plates coloured. A total of some 26,000 plants are illustrated and described. 'The Vegetable system is of great importance because it gave for the first time in the vernacular a comprehensive treatment of the plant kingdom, on a lavish scale... adopting the Linnaean generic names and introducing binary nomenclature' (Stafleu). Numerous species are described for the first time, most being recently introduced exotics. The Vegetable system is dedicated to the Prince of Wales, later George III. Its publication was instigated by, and partially financed by, John Stuart, Earl of Bute, a notable patron of botany and the initiator of Kew Gardens as a botanic garden. He may well have contributed to the text. John Hill was involved in lengthy financial disputes with Bute, and the publication of the Vegetable system ended in Hill's bankruptcy and death.

      Upsaliae 1761. 8vo. pp. (4), 321, (1). Contemporary blind limp boards. The scarce original edition. "Wallerius' interest in agriculture naturally led him to pursue agricultural chemistry, especially since agriculture was of great importance for the national economy. His research proved so basic and of such scope that he was called the father of agricultural chemistry. His principal work in this field was 'Agricultura fundamenta chemica ...' which was published in Latin and Swedish, in parallel columns, and was later translated into German, French, Spanish, and English. Wallerius established as a fundamental, necessary principle that agricultural chemistry should be based on comparative study of the chemical composition not only of plants but also of the earth in which they grow" (D.S.B. XIV, pp. 144/145).

A fine complete copy of the most beautiful work on the flora of North Europe, forming the most extensive representation of the Scandinavian flora. The work was issued with plain or coloured plates. Published over a period of 122 years it comprises 3240 engraved folio plates and depicts plants of North Germany, Denmark, Norway and to a certain extent Sweden. It had the support of five successive Kings in Denmark beginning with King Frederik V (1722-1766) and ending with King Frederik VIII (1843-1912). 'The value of the work was in the accuracy and beauty of the plates made under his (Oeder's) supervision by Martin and Michael Rösssler and later, under the supervision of the Danish editors, by Christian F. Mueller (1748-1814) and Johann Theodor Bayer (1782-1873). The Rösslers together contributed some 600 plates, J.T. Bayer some 1,500 plates... Their figures unite great artistic excellence with utmost scientific exactness, so that they belong to the best of their kind...' (Stearn, W.T. The Flora Danica its history and illustrations). 'The Royal Porcelain Factory's most remarkable achievement has been the 'Flora Danica' service consisting of more than 2,300 separate pieces each decortated with representations of Scandinavian wildflowers taken from the 'Flora Danica' ' (Stearn).

Van Deventer was the greatest obstetrician of his time, the, 'father of modern midwifery'. - Deventer (1651-1724) 'ist unstreitig der hervorragendste und wissenschaftlich gebildetste Geburtshelfer seiner Zeit, denn seine Forschungen waren nicht bloß bahnbrechend, sondern bilden heute noch nach einer Richtung hin - nämlich in Bezug auf das enge Becken - die Basis, auf der die moderne Geburtshilfe ruht.' (Hirsch/H. II, 252). Der berühmte holländische Mediziner gilt als der Begründer der 'richtigen Lehre vom Becken'. Sein hier vorliegendes Hauptwerk 'mit seinen guten Abbildungen läßt den Fortschrift besonders deutlich erkennen. Namentlich erscheint die Diagnostik der abnormalen Kindeslagen bei ihm erheblich verfeinert; nicht minder seine Technik der geburtshilflichen Eingriffe, bei denen er dem manuellen gegenüber dem instrumentellen bis zur äußersten Grenze den Vorzug gab. Das letztere erhielt eine sehr wichtigsten Bereicherungen durch eine Erfindung, die sich auf die Dauer als einer der wirksamsten und segensreichsten in der Geburtshilfe überhaupt erwies: die Geburtszange' (Meyer-Steinegg/Sudhoff 379 ff.). - Bibl.-Stempel und Nr. verso auf Titel. - Schönes Exemplar des gesuchten Werkes.

        The memoirs of Ninon de l'Enclos, with her letters to Monsr de St Evremond and to the Marquis de Sevigné. Collected and translated from the French, by a lady

      London, printed for R.and J.Dodsley 1761.. 2 vols, 12mo, xii, 274, 247 p., a fine copy in contemporary calf. First edition. Apparently put together by Elizabeth Griffith (1727?-1793), the actress and novelist. It consists of the (genuine?) letters to St Evremond, a lengthy introduction by the translator based mainly on Douxmenil's 'Memoires et lettres pour servir a l'histoire de la vie de ...', and the letters to the marquis de Sevigné, forgeries attributed to Louis Damours. Ninon has never had the glamour in England that she had in France, but this book ran through several editions. This is an eighteenth-century English book of a kind hard to find nowadays, a perfect copy in calf of a good, pale colour. "At length the polite Abbe de Gedoine pressed and obtained an assignation. He came, and found the enchanting Ninon reclining on a couch, like the Grandmother of the Loves, in the most galant deshabille. He asked her, but with the greatest air of respect, why she had deferred so long the completion of his happiness? I must confess, replied she, that it proceeded from a remain of vanity: I piqued myself on having a lover at fourscore, and it was but yesterday that I was eighty compleat."

Hebbe Den svenska lantbrukslitteraturen 614. Med latinsk och svensk parallelltext samt tryckt dedikation till kronprins Gustav. Översättare av den svenska texten var Jonas Apelblad. En andra upplaga med endast svensk text trycktes 1778 och arbetet översattes till tyska, franska, spanska och engelska. I "Åkerbrukets chemiska grunder" redogör Wallerius bl.a. för jordarternas betydelse för växtprocessen och gödningsmedlens omvandling till växtföda. Pionjärarbetet har givit Wallerius rykte som den egentlige grundläggaren av lantbrukskemin. "Dictionary of scientific biography" skriver apropå dess betydelse: "Wallerius established as a fundamental, necessary principle that agricultural chemistry should be based on comparative study of the chemical composition not only of plants but also of the earth in which they grow." Carl Gustaf Lewenhaupt (1834-1908) ägde gården Aske i Håtuna socken i Uppland. Hans boksamling omfattade ca 10000 volymer och innehöll mycket historia, resor, genealogi och heraldik samt många ströskrifter från frihetstiden och gustaviansk tid. Grundstommen till biblioteket var ett arv efter hans frus farfars bror Johan af Nordin (1746-1823). Denne var en av Gustav III:s närmaste rådgivare under kungens senare regeringsår. Han var även bruksägare

        The History of the Proceedings in the Case of Margaret, Commonly called Peg, only lawful Sister to John Bull, Esq

      London: Printed for W. Owen, near Temple Bar, 1761 First edition. Contemporary pale polished calf, spine with raised bands and simple gilt rules, contemporary red morocco label. . Octavo. Title a little soiled, and the occasional small stain, but generally a fine, fresh copy. In dark green cloth clamshell case. Until recently this work , a witty political satire, was usually attributed to Adam Ferguson but David Raynor, in his edition (Cambridge University Press, 1982), has cogently argued that the work is in fact by David Hume. Hume had written to the Rev. Alexander Carlyle of Inveresk on 3 February 1761, claiming that he had written the work, but Carlyle thought that this was a device to direct attention away from Ferguson as the likely author. The evidence – and there is a lot of it – is unclear, but many scholars are persuaded that the work is by Hume. The ledgers of William Strahan in the British Library reveal that he was the printer of the work, and that the Edinburgh published Patrick Neill participated silently in the publication (Add Mss. 48803A, f.43r). Strahan printed 1000 copies of the first edition, which was published on 3 January 1761; he printed 750 copies of the second edition, published on 11 February 1761.
