In all, a nice, unrestored copy of the scarce first edition. In his preface, Fenning praises the value of dictionaries remarking that their importance "is so great, the public, instead of wondering at their variety, should rather wonder that their variety is not greater." He notes, however, that most dictionaries focus on specific fields of knowledge, and "neither time, nor curiosity, nor wealth, have put it in the power of every one to be master of the various dictionaries which have been published in the different branches of science.

Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida con titoli entro tassello in marocchino rosso (parzialmente mancante) al dorso, tagli spruzzati di rosso.Edizione originale dell'opera più importante del Morgagni (1682 -1771), che gli valse il titolo di padre dell'anatomia patologica. Nel De sedibus, considerato ancora oggi uno dei capisaldi della letteratura medica, viene effettuata una ricerca accurata e ordinata delle varie malattie, studiandone anche la storia, i sintomi e le possibili cure. In questo enorme e vasto lavoro l'autore, riporta in dettaglio i suoi risultati in 640 dissezioni. In 70 lettere sono esaminati e descritti 700 casi, in cui vengono confrontati i dati clinici con i risultati delle autopsie mettendo così in correlazione lo studio dell'anatomia con quello della patologia "sedi e cause della malattia studiate per mezzo di anatomia"; introduce ed insiste sul concetto che la diagnosi, la prognosi ed il trattamento della malattia devono essere basati su una comprensione esatta delle mutazioni patologiche nelle strutture anatomiche. Inoltre le patologie descritte sono innumerevoli, alcune mai indagate prima, e studiate partendo appunto, dal sintomo, fino a risalire all'organo colpito.

L'opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780.

Manuscript; Blackstone, Sir William; Petty, Lord
1761. Blackstone Seeks Assistance from His Patron [Manuscript]. Blackstone, Sir William [1723-1780]. [Petty, Lord William, Earl of Shelburne (1737-1805)]. [Autograph Letter, Addressed to "My Lord," Signed "W. Blackstone," London, Inner Temple, March 21, 1761]. Two-page letter on single 8-3/4" x 7-1/4" sheet and 5" x 4" copperplate portrait of Blackstone (after Gainsborough) in attractively matted and glazed 19-1/2" x 15-3/4" frame, the backing has a window for viewing the second side of the letter. Light toning to letter and portrait, otherwise fine. $6,500. * Better known as the Earl of Shelburne, William Petty, 1st Marquess of Lansdowne, was an Irish-born British Whig statesman. Among other offices, he was the first Home Secretary in 1782, Leader of the House of Lords in 1782-1783 and, briefly during those two years, Prime Minister. As a young man Petty attended Blackstone's Vinerian lectures in 1755-1756. In 1761 Petty, then a member of King George III's inner circle, decided to become Blackstone's patron. He applied his influence to get Blackstone elected to Parliament, representing the "rotten" Wiltshire borough of Hindon, and elevated to the prestigious and lucrative rank of king's counsel. He pursued these goals simultaneously, which put Blackstone in an awkward position; if he became a king's counsel and was then elected, he would be required to resign his seat and stand for election again. That is the issue discussed in this letter. Blackstone knew the re-election requirement could be avoided if he was granted a royal patent of precedence instead, which would give … [Click Below for Full Description]

Additionally, he was raised to the bench at Middle Temple in 1557.

In all, a nice, unrestored copy of the scarce first edition. In his preface, Fenning praises the value of dictionaries remarking that their importance "is so great, the public, instead of wondering at their variety, should rather wonder that their variety is not greater." He notes, however, that most dictionaries focus on specific fields of knowledge, and "neither time, nor curiosity, nor wealth, have put it in the power of every one to be master of the various dictionaries which have been published in the different branches of science.

Small worm hole running throughout, minutely affecting some portions of text. Very good. The first edition of this interesting medical work. The work refers to the history and foundation of the Hospital de San Lazaro (founded 1563), which was devoted to "take [in] the leprous who are not slaves." It provides a complete description of the relations between the Church and the Hospital, as well as medical data about leprosy and its spread. Curiously enough, chapter six is dedicated to bullfighting in Peru, presumably due to the fact that bullfighting was a way of financing the Hospital's expenses. Only a handful of copies on OCLC.

The first part of the work contains an interesting description of the Cape.

"This document is . . . not only highly interesting, but of great permanent worth" (Theal, History of South Africa).

plein veau de l'époque, dos orné. -Qq. rousseurs, plus prononcées sur la pièce n° 8. -Bel exemplaire. Reliés en 1 volume in-8 ; Cet intéressant recueil factice, sans doute constitué par un protestant, regroupe cinq pièces qui contestent la décision des juges toulousains et innocentent Calas, une pièce qui précise le contexte religieux très conflictuel à Toulouse depuis le XVIe siècle, et enfin deux pièces de Voltaire relatives aux protestants.Jean Calas, protestant toulousain, accusé d'avoir assassiné son fils Marc-Antoine le 13 octobre 1761, au motif qu'il aurait eu l'intention d'abjurer la foi protestante, fut condamné par le Parlement à être roué le 9 mars 1762, et supplicié le lendemain. Jean Calas protesta jusqu’a la fin de son innocence.Voltaire, convaincu dès 1763 de son innocence, mit alors en mouvement ses relations et suscita l'"affaire Calas", ce qui devait aboutir à sa réhabilitation. L'affaire Calas demeura jusqu'au XIXe siècle un enjeu politique et religieux.Détail du recueil :1) Mémoire à consulter, et consultation pour les enfans de défunt Jean Calas, marchand à Toulouse.
