        The History of England, from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Accession of Henry VII (to the Revolution in 1688) In six volumes

      London: Printed for A. Millar in the Strand, 1762. Hardcover. Good. Hardcover. Size: quartos. This is Hume's greatest work on the history of England. Written in installments while Hume worked as a librarian in Edinburgh, this work quickly became a bestseller and gave him financial independence. Originally published in 1754, it has since gone through over 100 editions. Not everyone liked Hume's History though - Thomas Jefferson was deeply critical of the set and banished it from the University of Virginia Library. The title pages of volumes three through six state "A new edition, corrected" but list the same publishing information as volumes one and two. All volumes are bound in full leather with title and volume labels to spines. The hinges of three volumes have been crudely repaired with cord loosely sewn through the board and spine. Heavy rubbing to boards, spines, and title labels. Wear to edges, spine ends, corners, and hinges of all volumes. All boards remain attached, but some are a little loose. Tears and losses to leather on boards, spines, and corners of most volumes. Interiors are clean overall with occasional ink stains, minor damp stains, and spots of foxing. Mathmatical equation in ink to rear endpage of volume one. The free endpapers of volume II are nearly detached. The front free endpaper of volume III is missing. Pen marking to rear endpaper of volume IV. The front free endpaper of volume V is nearly detached. Volume I: 424 pages; Volume II: 446 pages; Volume III: 404 pages; Volume IV: 338 pages; Volume V: 464 pages; Volume VI: 452 pages plus index. This is a large, heavy set and may require an additinonal shipping fee. ENG/052217.

        1. Posticum Panthei 2. Reliquiae Xysti M. Agrippae, adharentes Pantheo 3. Reliquiae Thermarum ipsiusi Agrippae

      Roma 1762 - Acquaforte, 1762, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. La tavola è la numero XXIV della serie "Il Campo Marzio dell’Antica Roma". Magnifica prova, dalla prima edizione dell'opera, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con ampli margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Sebbene pubblicata solo nel 1762 questa fondamentale opera, che appare come una delle più complesse del Piranesi, veniva già annunciata dall’artista nelle Antichità Romane, delle quali, secondo il Focillon, può essere considerata come il quinto tomo. La vicende del Campo Marzio si intrecciano con l’amicizia con lo scozzese Robert Adam, al quale l’opera è dedicata. Adam era giunto a Roma nel 1755 e ben presto aveva conosciuto Piranesi, forse per mezzo del comune amico Charles-Louis Clerisseau, trovando nella comune passione archeologica la base di una reciproca stima, che continuò anche dopo il ritorno dell’architetto Londra. Fu proprio Adam che, durante le ricognizioni dei resti dei monumenti del Campo Marzio, suggerì al Piranesi l’idea di realizzare una mappa dell’intera area, che inizialmente doveva essere inclusa nelle Antichità, e poi finì per costituire la base di un progetto ben più ambizioso, dando alla luce questa importante opera. Negli scritti iniziali l’autore annuncia lo scopo di questo lavoro, affermando la volontà di voler tracciare la storia di questa vasta area compresa tra il Tevere ed i colli, cercando di ricostruirne la conformazione ed il volto. Egli sottolinea la difficoltà di tale lavoro di ricostruzione, poiché l’antico Campo Marzio ha coinciso con l’area più intensamente popolata e riedificata della città dal medioevo all’epoca attuale, non nascondendo il margine di ipoteticità insito nell’opera. Il risultato è che l’attendibilità dei risultati rimane quanto mai problematica, sia per la pionieristica ricerca archeologica del tempo, sia per la carica visionaria che porta l’artista e l’architetto a superare di slancio i limiti della realtà storica progettando il passato in funzione del presente, portando il genio artistico a prevalere di gran lunga sull’archeologo, conferendo senso e vigore a tutta l’opera. Plate XXIV from Il Campo Marzio dell'Antica Roma by Piranesi, published in 1762. The etching shows the back of Pantheon, Remains of Covered Portico, Remains of Baths of Agrippa A fine impression from the early roman edition, wide margins, in very good conditions. Altought published in 1762, the genesis of this ambitious work extended back into the previous decade. Significantly, as an exercise in speculative archaeology executed with contemporary architects in mind, the work originated in the highly productive relationship between Piranesi and Robert Adam. Not only was the folio dedicated to the British architect, but much of its material was assembled during Adam's studies with Piranesi in Rome between 1755 and 1757. According to the considerable dedicatory preface, the author's objective was to examine the customs and environment of a vanished society through the study of its architectural remains. The end product was a remakable series of hypothetical reconstructions, presented in plan, elevation, and perspective, in which Piranesi's imaginative faculties were stretched to the full. Il Campo Marzio opens with 33 pages of learned discussion of literary authorities with parallel text in Latin and Italian. There follows a group of maps showing, stage by stage, the evolution of this site from primitive beginnings in the marshy site bounded by the curve of the Tiber to a densely monumental townscape of the utmost complexity and grandeur. The climax is provided by the virtual fantasy of the Ichnographia, a vast six-plate purportedly representing the Campus Martius under the empire. The Ichnographia is supported by 37 plates of vedute and detailed surveys in which Piranesi presented the raw material on which this speculative act was based, often using the cramatic technique of isolating monumental fragments from the accretions of the medieval to [Attributes: First Edition]

        Considérations sur les corps organisés

      First Edition. 2 vignettes title drawn by Picart. Cardboard to Bradel nineteenth black. Parts securities orange calf. Small friction cap. Nice copy. Work on capital generation and embrylogie, one discovers the hypothesis of chromosomes but also the influence of the environment. Bonnet there perfected his thesis that there be any previously latent in nature, and the embryo is already in the seminal fluid, and the generation is only the simple development of the germ, that small, developed by nutrition; the seed already contains everything that will be developed. Although Bonnet develops extensions and consequences of this fundamental premise, it does not prevent it from penetrating the mysteries of embryology and fertilization. The germ theory of seeming a balance between spontaneous generation and the generation, it appears a solution to the theoretical impasse led spontaneous generation that contradict the observations in which Bonnet has great finesse. Cap is not only interested in mammals but largely to plants and earthworms.

        A. Pons Aelius absque recentibus ornamentis. B. Reliquiae Sepulchri Aely Hadriani Imp. Sine operibus, quae hodie Castra Sancti Angeli dicuntur ostensae

      Roma 1762 - Acquaforte, 1762, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Della serie Il Campo Marzio dell’Antica Roma. Magnifica prova, dalla prima edizione dell'opera, impressa su carta vergata coeva con tipica filigrana del "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB" (ove presente), con ampli margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione.

        L' Afrique Divisee En Ses Principaux Etats

      [Paris]: 1762 - Engraved, hand colored, decorative cartouche, ample margins, 43.7 x 30 cm (17 1/2" x 12"). A couple of sturdy old repairs, stain in top margin, not affecting image, left edge with small chip; otherwise very good, bright and with a strong impression. Janivier was a French geographer that was active in the second half of the 18th century. According to Norwich and Tooley, Janivier produced a series of maps in 1760, and collaborated in an Atlas Moderne in 1762 and 1771.The present map is number 28 from that atlas. This rather handsome engraved map, which has full color, appears to present the cartographic knowledge of Africa in the mid 18th century. The map is fairly accurate, and shows the only settlements in southern Africa, and also features a few Hottentot tribes. The cartouche, which is in the lower left part of the map, shows a few tress, a leopard stalking, and a crocodile near the bottom. Norwich 104. Tooley p. 59.

"La monographie de Lyonnet sur la chenille reste, aujourd'hui encore, parmi les meilleurs recherches anatomiques" (Garrison and Morton, 305). Le présent traité, que l'on peut considérer comme le triomphe empirique de l'oeil de l'observateur en histoire naturelle, est entièrement dévolu à la description particulièrement minutieuse des muscles, nerfs, bronches, coeur, viscères et aux fils de soie des chenilles ; toutes les représentations anatomiques ayant été dessinées puis gravées par Lyonnet lui-même. "He believed, first, that the world and all its creaturea are a vast cipher and, second, that the duty of man is to decode it. He found the natural world to be as intricately, precisely, and richly designed as a word by a Dutch artist ; and he believed taht the more this great design was elucidated, the rgreater would be man's reverence for the Designer. The tasks of breaking the code by tracing the design to its last perfect detail was therefore perhaps the one supremely worthwhile thing to do." (DSB, VIII, p. 580). Notre exemplaire est bien complet de la Lettre à M. Le Cat qui donne la description du microscope (la planche le figurant sert ici de frontispice) utilisé par Lyonnet pour ses observations et descriptions anatomiques, et de l'explication des figures I à VIII. Ces deux addenda sont placés directement après la préface conformément à l'avis au relieur qui clos l'ouvrage. Quelques feuillets roussis, sinon bon exemplaire grand de marges et propre.

        Le Port vieux de Toulon

      1762 - Acquaforte e bulino, datata e firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, alcuni restauri perfettamente eseguiti, tracce di colla la verso, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. La tavola deriva da uno dei celebri dipinti di Joseph Vernet, ed è incisa a 4 mani dal Cochin e da Jacques Philippe Le Bas. È grazie al patrocinio di M. de Martigny, Direttore degli Belli Arti e fratello di Madame de Pompadour, che aveva a quel tempo tutte il favore di Luigi XV, che Vernet ha ottenuto del Re un ordine per 24 dipinti dove poteva dare tutta la misura del suo talento: la rapprezentanza dei porti della Francia. La moda di grandi composizioni rappresentando i marine è cominciata. Nel 1753, l'artista dipinge due Vedute del porto di Marsiglia che gli valgono l'anno successivo l'ammissione all'Accademia Reale di Parigi. Terminò il suo lavoro, dopo ben 12 anni di viaggio per le città francesi, nel 1765. Etching with engravings, signed and dated at lower center. A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, some expert repairs at the back, otherwise in good condition. This plate is engraved by Cochin & Jacques Philippe Le Bas, after a painting by Joseph Vernet. Vernet was commissioned by Louis XV in 1753 to paint fifteen views of the main ports of France, and given the exceptional title of "peintre des marines de sa majesté". He spent twelve years travelling around the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Channel coasts with his family and servants in tow. The country was at war with England at the time, and Louis specifically requested that the artist show off the economic activities and maritime strength of France, which Vernet did to much acclaim. The majority of the paintings are in the Musée de la Marine in Paris. Dimensioni 750 540mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Roma 1762 - Acquaforte, 1762, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Della serie Il Campo Marzio dell’Antica Roma. Magnifica prova, dalla prima edizione dell'opera, impressa su carta vergata coeva con tipica filigrana del "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB" (ove presente), con ampli margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Sebbene pubblicata solo nel 1762 questa fondamentale opera, che appare come una delle più complesse del Piranesi, veniva già annunciata dall’artista nelle Antichità Romane, delle quali, secondo il Focillon, può essere considerata come il quinto tomo. La vicende del Campo Marzio si intrecciano con l’amicizia con lo scozzese Robert Adam, al quale l’opera è dedicata. Adam era giunto a Roma nel 1755 e ben presto aveva conosciuto Piranesi, forse per mezzo del comune amico Charles-Louis Clerisseau, trovando nella comune passione archeologica la base di una reciproca stima, che continuò anche dopo il ritorno dell’architetto Londra. Fu proprio Adam che, durante le ricognizioni dei resti dei monumenti del Campo Marzio, suggerì al Piranesi l’idea di realizzare una mappa dell’intera area, che inizialmente doveva essere inclusa nelle Antichità, e poi finì per costituire la base di un progetto ben più ambizioso, dando alla luce questa importante opera. Negli scritti iniziali l’autore annuncia lo scopo di questo lavoro, affermando la volontà di voler tracciare la storia di questa vasta area compresa tra il Tevere ed i colli, cercando di ricostruirne la conformazione ed il volto. Egli sottolinea la difficoltà di tale lavoro di ricostruzione, poiché l’antico Campo Marzio ha coinciso con l’area più intensamente popolata e riedificata della città dal medioevo all’epoca attuale, non nascondendo il margine di ipoteticità insito nell’opera. Il risultato è che l’attendibilità dei risultati rimane quanto mai problematica, sia per la pionieristica ricerca archeologica del tempo, sia per la carica visionaria che porta l’artista e l’architetto a superare di slancio i limiti della realtà storica progettando il passato in funzione del presente, portando il genio artistico a prevalere di gran lunga sull’archeologo, conferendo senso e vigore a tutta l’opera. A fantastic view from Il Campo Marzio dell'Antica Roma. A fine impression from the early roman edition, printed on contemporary laid paper with "double encircled fleur de lys" watermark, wide margins, in very good conditions. Altought published in 1762, the genesis of this ambitious work extended back into the previous decade. Significantly, as an exercise in speculative archaeology executed with contemporary architects in mind, the work originated in the highly productive relationship between Piranesi and Robert Adam. Not only was the folio dedicated to the British architect, but much of its material was assembled during Adam's studies with Piranesi in Rome between 1755 and 1757. According to the considerable dedicatory preface, the author's objective was to examine the customs and environment of a vanished society through the study of its architectural remains. The end product was a remakable series of hypothetical reconstructions, presented in plan, elevation, and perspective, in which Piranesi's imaginative faculties were stretched to the full. Il Campo Marzio opens with 33 pages of learned discussion of literary authorities with parallel text in Latin and Italian. There follows a group of maps showing, stage by stage, the evolution of this site from primitive beginnings in the marshy site bounded by the curve of the Tiber to a densely monumental townscape of the utmost complexity and grandeur. The climax is provided by the virtual fantasy of the Ichnographia, a vast six-plate purportedly representing the Campus Martius under the empire. The Ichnographia is supported by 37 plates of vedute and detailed surveys in which Piranesi presented the raw material on which this speculative act was based, often using the cramatic technique of isolating monumental fragments from the accretions of t [Attributes: First Edition]

        Disegno della Prima Machina rappresentantein simmetria disposti vari de' molti e preziosi Monumenti antichi sparsi e conservati nell'insigne Palazzo Farnese in Roma

      1762 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1762. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini. Il foglio era applicato su tela ed in cornice; dopo un sapiente lavoro di restauro è stato riportato alla condizione originale. Piccoli strappetti ai margini bianchi, minime ossidazioni al verso, per il resto in buone condizioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo. Etching, printed on contemporary laid paper, small tear perfectly repaired, otherwise in good condition The engravings have been laid on canvas and framed; after a long work to repair them, they now look almost perfect. Signs of glue on verso, on recto signs of abrasions and oxidations. Chinea literally means white female mule, the one the Kings of Spain offered every year to the Pope as a solemn payment of the income of the Kingdome of Naples. The horse, duly trained, knelt in front of the Pope and to offer him a silver vase with money inside, that was fastened to its saddle. The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as per [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Thomas Leland (17221785) 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 382336 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 himself that same year. Philip's military skills and expansionist vision of Macedonian greatness brought him early success. He first had to re-establish a situation which had been greatly worsened by the defeat against the Illyrians in which King Perdiccas himself had died. The Paionians and the Thracians had sacked and invaded the eastern regions of the country, while the Athenians had landed, at Methoni on the coast, a contingent under a Macedonian pretender called Argeus. Using diplomacy, Philip pushed back the Paionians and Thracians promising tributes, and crushed the 3,000 Athenian hoplites (359). Momentarily free from his opponents, he concentrated on strengthening his internal position and, above all, his army. His most important innovation was doubtless the introduction of the phalanx infantry corps, armed with the famous sarissa, an exceedingly long spear, at the time the most important army corps in Macedonia. Philip had married Audata, great-granddaughter of the Illyrian king of Dardania, Bardyllis. However, this did not prevent him from marching against them in 358 and crushing them in a ferocious battle in which some 7,000 Illyrians died (357). By this move, Philip established his authority inland as far as Lake Ohrid and earned the favour of the Epirotes. He agreed with the Athenians, who had been so far unable to conquer Amphipolis, which commanded the gold mines of Mount Pangaion, to lease it to them after its conquest, in exchange for Pydna (lost by Macedon in 363). However, after conquering Amphipolis, he kept both the cities (357). As Athens declared war against him, he allied with the Chalkidian League of Olynthus. He subsequently conquered Potidaea, this time keeping his word and ceding it to the League in 356. One year before, Philip had married the Epirote princess Olympias, who was the daughter of the king of the Molossians. During 356 BC, Philip also conquered the town of Crenides and changed its name to Philippi: he established a powerful garrison there to control its mines, which granted him much of the gold later used for his campaigns. In the meantime, his general Parmenion defeated the Illyrians again. Also in 356 Alexander was born, and Philip's race horse won in the Olympic Games. In 355354 he besieged Methone, the last city on the Thermaic Gulf controlled by Athens. During the siege, Philip was injured in his eye. It was later removed surgically. Despite the arrival of two Athenian fleets, the city fell in 354. Philip also attacked Abdera and Maronea, on the Thracian seaboard (354353). Philip was involved in the Third Sacred War which had begun in Greece in 356. During the summer of 353 he invaded Thessaly, defeating 7,000 Phocians under the brother of Onomarchus. The latter however defeated Philip in the two succeeding battles. Philip returned to Thessaly the next summer, this time with an army of 20,000 infantry and 3,000 cavalry including all Thessalian troops. In the Battle of Crocus Field 6,000 Phocians fell, while 3,000 were taken as prisoners and later drowned. This battle granted Philip an immense prestige, as well as the free acquisition of Pherae. Philip was also tagus of Thessaly, and he claimed as his own Magnesia, with the important harbour of Pagasae. Philip did not attempt to advance into Central Greece because the Athenians, unable to arrive in time to defend Pagasae, had occupied Thermopylae. Hostilities with Athens did not yet take place, but Athens was threatened by the Macedonian party which Philip's gold created in Euboea. From 352 to 346 BC, Philip did not again come south. He was active in completing the subjugation of the Balkan hill-country to the west and north, and in reducing the Greek cities of the coast as far as the Hebrus. To the chief of these coastal cities, Olynthus, Philip continued to profess friendship until its neighboring cities were in his hands. Philip II gold stater, with head of Apollo. In 349 BC, Philip started the siege of Olynthus, which, apart from its strategic position, housed his relatives Arrhidaeus and Menelaus, pretenders to the Macedonian throne. Olynthus had at first allied itself with Philip, but later shifted its allegiance to Athens. The latter, however, did nothing to help the city, its expeditions held back by a revolt in Euboea (probably paid by Philip's gold). The Macedonian king finally took Olynthus in 348 BC and razed the city to the ground. The same fate was inflicted on other cities of the Chalcidian peninsula. Macedon and the regions adjoining it having now been securely consolidated, Philip celebrated his Olympic Games at Dium. In 347 BC, Philip advanced to the conquest of the eastern districts about Hebrus, and compelled the submission of the Thracian prince Cersobleptes. In 346 BC, he intervened effectively in the war between Thebes and the Phocians, but his wars with Athens continued intermittently. However, Athens had made overtures for peace, and when Philip again moved south, peace was sworn in Thessaly. With key Greek city-states in submission, Philip II turned to Sparta he sent them a message: "If I win this war, you will be slaves forever." In another version, he warned: "You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city." According to both accounts, the Spartans' laconic reply was one word: "If". Philip II and Alexander both chose to leave Sparta alone. Later, the Macedonian arms were carried across Epirus to the Adriatic Sea. In 345 BC, Philip conducted a hard-fought campaign against the Ardiaioi (Ardiaei), under their king Pluratus, during which he was seriously wounded by an Ardian soldier in the lower right leg. In 342 BC, Philip led a great military expedition north against the Scythians, conquering the Thracian fortified settlement Eumolpia to give it his name, Philippopolis (modern Plovdiv). In 340 BC, Philip started the siege of Perinthus. Philip began another siege in 339 of the city of Byzantium. After unsuccessful sieges of both cities, Philip's influence all over Greece was compromised. However, he successfully reasserted his authority in the Aegean by defeating an alliance of Thebans and Athenians at the Battle of Chaeronea in 338 BC, while in the same year, Philip destroyed Amfissa because the residents had illegally cultivated part of the Crisaian plain which belonged to Delphi. It was these decisive victories that finally secured Philips position as having the majority of Greece under Macedonian sovereignty. Philip created and led the League of Corinth in 337 BC. Members of the League agreed never to wage war against each other, unless it was to suppress revolution. Philip was elected as leader (hegemon) of the army of invasion against the Persian Empire. In 336 BC, when the invasion of Persia was in its very early stage, Philip was assassinated, and was succeeded on the throne of Macedon by his son Alexander III, who later become known as Alexander the Great. As historians Roisman and Worthington state, to Macedonian rulers, Achaemenid Persia stood as an example of statehood and mores. This is especially true of Philip II as he built his power and created many institutions to imitate those known from the Achaemenid Empire. Thus, inspired by Persian achievements, Philip established a Royal Secretary and Archive, and aimed at the elevation of the political as well as religious level, and he used a special throne (Gr. thronos) borrowed from the Achaemenid court to demonstrate his elevated rank. The institution of the Royal Pages (Gr. Paides Basilikoi) was probably inspired by Achaemenid prototype - among their duties, Arrian mentions mounting the king on his horse "in the Persian style". The status of Thrace in 342-334 under the Macedonian sway as a kind of regular satrapy resembled Achaemenid administrative practices, and the organization of the royal court, generally, followed in a fashion of the Acha

        Recueil de 11 pièces galantes et philosophiques des années 1762 - 1764 avec trois rares textes de Jean-Jacques Rousseau

      1762 - Fort in-8° relié plein veau de l'époque. 1- François-Thomas-Marie de Baculard d' ARNAUD : Les amans malheureux : ou, Le comte de Comminge, drame en trois actes et en vers ; précédé d'un discours préliminaire et suivi des Mémoires du comte de Comminge. (La Haye et se trouve à Paris : Chez L'Esclapart, 1764), Barbier attribue cet ouvrage à M. de Baculard d'Arnaud (Barbier, t. 1, p. 660). Romancier et auteur dramatique, Baculard d'Arnaud (1718-1805), enfant prodige, bénéficia très tôt de la protection de Voltaire, jusqu'à ce que leur amitié cesse en raison d'une pièce de vers que Baculard écrivit au roi de Prusse. Frédéric II le choisit alors comme correspondant littéraire et lui témoigna une grande confiance, le considérant comme le successeur de Voltaire « à son couchant ». Son ouvrage « Les amans malheureux ou le comte de Comminge » est un drame en trois actes et en vers, suivi de la Lettre du comte de Comminge à sa mère (avec une gravure), et des Mémoires du comte de Comminge. Le tout est précédé d'un discours préliminaire, dans lequel l'auteur écrit : « Si la Piété et la Terreur sont les deux grands ressorts que doive employer le théâtre, jamais fable ne fut plus susceptible de ces deux mouvements énergiques que le sujet du comte de Comminge ». Le comte de Comminge était religieux de la Trappe, sous le nom du frère Arsene. Les autres acteurs du drame sont le frère Euthime, le chevalier d'Orvigni, le P. Abbé de la Trappe et les religieux. La scène se passe dans l'abbaye de la Trappe. La dernière scène est très importante. « Il fallait que cette scène fût un tableau pathétique de morale ; c'est pour cette scène que la pièce a été faite. Que de jeunes coeurs y trouveront leur histoire ! Ils apprendront cette importante vérité, que les plus faibles étincelles dans les passions conduisent à de terribles incendies, souvent la source de tous les malheurs, et quelquefois de tous les crimes » - - - - 2- DORAT : Lettre du comte de Comminges a sa mere, suivie d'une lettre de Philomele a Progné. (A Paris, De l'imprimerie de Sébastien Jorry, 1764), 68 pages et Deux planches hors texte par Ch.

Une planche hors texte gravée en taille douce de Ch. Eisen. Attribué à COSTARD par Barbier. Edition originale d'un des premiers livres de Jean Pierre Costard. Né en 1743, auteur de nombreux ouvrages, il devient imprimeur libraire en 1769, mais vite condamné pour publications sans permission, il est embastillé de 1781 à 1782. Il meurt ruiné en 1815. - - - - 6- THOMAS : Ode à M.
