        De l'Éducation publique.

      A Amsterdam 1762 - In-12 de (2)-XX-235 pp., veau havane, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale. « Au moment de sa publication, De l'Éducation publique fut attribuée avec insistance à Diderot et inclus dans une édition non autorisée de ses oeuvres qui parut à Amsterdam en 1773. Voltaire parle de Diderot comme de l'éditeur de cet essai, et Grimm lui-même, qui d'évidence n'aimait pas ce livre, reconnaissait qu'il « se pouvait que le philosophe ait vu ce manuscrit et qu'il y ait mis quelques phrases ». [.] Une lettre de Diderot à Damilaville, publiée pour la première fois en 1931, trancha la question de façon surprenante : Je suis bien curieux de savoir ce qu'on pensera de cet ouvrage. On saura que j'ai traité du manuscrit ; on saura que j'ai revu les feuilles. On se souviendra qu'on m'avait invité à m'occuper de ce sujet. On lira ; on trouvera des opinions si contraires aux miennes, et des morceaux de détail qui me ressemblent si fort, qu'on en saura que dire » (A.M. Wilson). Barbier attribue cet ouvrage à Crevier d'après une note manuscrite trouvée dans un exemplaire. Bel exemplaire. Tchemerzine-Scheler, II, 945 ; Adams, Bibliographie de Diderot, II, DA1.

Wie praktisch immer Mischauflage der einzelnen Teile. – Heilmann et al. (2014), Pos. 4.4 und 5.3: „Die durch Theorie erfundene Practic von Johann Daniel und Johann Justin Preißler zählt zu den erfolgreichsten deutschsprachigen Zeichenlehrbüchern der Frühen Neuzeit. Der Maler Johann Daniel Preißler (1666 –1737) lernte in Nürnberg. Ein mehrjähriger Studienaufenthalt in Italien (1688 – 1696), Venedig und vor allem Rom, gab ihm entscheidende Einblicke in die aktuelle, europaweit vorbildliche Kunstpraxis. Ab 1704 leitete Preißler die Nürnberger Malerakademie und ab 1716 auch die angegliederte städtische Zeichenschule. (.) Die enorme Rezeption des Zeichenlehrbuchs gründet in einem didaktischen Coup: Preißler lieferte nicht einfach nur Vorlagen zum Kopieren. Den Ausschlag für den Erfolg gab die Konzeption des Buches als eine Art vorbereitender Kurs auf das Kopieren nach Vorlagen, also zur Nutzung weiterer Vorlagenbücher. Preißler bot dem Zeichenschüler ein leicht nachvollziehbares System, mit dem dieser sich letztendlich eine Methode aneignete, in jeder Art von Vorlage die geometrischen Grundformen zu erkennen, die in leicht gezeichneten Hilfslinien als proportional korrektes Gerüst für die ausführliche Nachzeichnung (in einem nachfolgenden separaten Arbeitsschritt) dienen sollte. (.) Ein Zeichenheft des sächsischen Prinzen und späteren Kurfürsten Friedrich Christian I. (1722 –1763) von 1735 in Dresden (.) belegt die Rezeption der Preißlerschen Didaktik selbst in den höchs ten gesellschaftlichen Kreisen. Die Blätter zeigen in einem abweichenden Layout präzise Reinzeichnungennach den Preißlerschen Figuren als Ergebnis der Übungen des Prinzen. (.) Die Vorlagen entwarf Johann Daniel Preißler selbst, die Umsetzung in den Druck leistete sein Sohn Georg Martin (1700 – 1754)." (S. Müller-Bechtel zu Pos. 4.4). 2500 g

      1762. Lettera autografo di Carlo Goldoni. Bologna, Giugno 1762. In-8°, 4 pp., 9 righe con data e firma. Carlo Osvaldo Goldoni (Venezia, 25 febbraio 1707 - Parigi, 6 febbraio 1793) è stato un drammaturgo, scrittore, librettista e avvocato italiano, cittadino della Repubblica di Venezia. Goldoni è considerato uno dei padri della commedia moderna e deve parte della sua fama anche alle opere in lingua veneta. « Ella pure nel nostro Veneto idioma; ma colla scelta delle parole, e colla robustezza dei sentimenti, ha fatto conoscere che la lingua nostra è capace di tutta la forza e di tutte le grazie dell'arte oratoria e poetica, e che usata anch'essa da mano maestra, non ha che invidiare alla più elegante Toscana. Ella aveva ciò dimostrato altre volte in varie pubbliche azioni, nelle quali vuole il sistema di questa ben regolata Repubblica Veneta che del proprio nativo idioma gli Oratori si valgano, e la di Lei naturale facondia, unita al chiarissimo suo talento, ed allo studio incessante di cui si compiace, rende l'E. V. ammirabile nell'età verde in cui si ritrova, e fa sperare in Lei coll'andar degli anni un benemerito cittadino di questa Patria gloriosa. » Uff. pacco 3.

With the Exlibris - bookplate of William Crosbie, Lord Brandon, 1st Earl of Glandore, to the front pastedown. 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

        COLONIAE ANGLICANAE ILLUSTRATAE: OR THE ACQUEST OF THE DOMINION, AND THE PLANTATION OF THE COLONIES MADE BY THE ENGLISH IN AMERICA, WITH THE RIGHTS OF THE COLONISTS, EXAMINED, STATED, AND ILLUSTRATED

      London, 1762. [2],viii,141,[1]pp. including advertising and errata leaves. Quarto. Contemporary calf, ruled in gilt, expertly rebacked, spine gilt, morocco label, gilt inner dentelles. Calf a bit scuffed at extremities, slightly worn at corners. Internally clean. Very good. William Bollan (1710?-82) was the colonial agent from Massachusetts in England from 1745 to 1762. He was renowned for his skill in lobbying for the colony, being particularly adept at securing for Massachusetts wartime reimbursement, and he repeatedly offered policy advice to the agents of the Prime Minister and the King. In 1757, when Thomas Pownall replaced William Shirley, Bollan's father-in-law, as governor of Massachusetts, Bollan's political career was threatened. Boston lawyer and early revolutionary James Otis sided with Pownall to secure Bollan's removal, but Lieut. Gov. Thomas Hutchinson stood steadfastly behind Bollan, beginning a long feud between Otis and Hutchinson. This feud would have severe implications in the growing revolution, as the disdain Otis and Hutchinson shared for each other would often play out in politicized discourse. The several colonial administrations under which Bollan served consistently failed to reimburse him for what he thought he was worth, so eventually he abandoned the role of colonial agent and picked up as a patriotic writer, the present volume being an early example of his work. He was later hired as agent for Massachusetts again, this time for the liberty- minded colonists, but he failed to reach an eleventh-hour compromise to avoid the war. He died before the war's completion. "The first part of an intended larger work relates early geographical knowledge to Portuguese exploration down the west coast of Africa in the fifteenth century. The proposed work was intended as a justification of colonial rights" - Bell. "A very learned work, but of which, unfortunately, no more was published" - Sabin. HOWES B142, "b." SABIN 6209. BELL B348. ANB, pp.130-31.

        PORTUGAL: Mapa General del Reyno de Portugal: comprehende sus provincias, corregimientos, oidorías, proveedurías, concejos, cotos, &c.

      - The scarce wall map issue of Tomás López’s magnificent map of Portugal, one of the finest national maps of the kingdom from the Enlightenment period. Tomás López’s large and beautifully engraved wall map of Portugal is a great work of Enlightenment era cartography, which appeared during a dramatic period in the history of Iberia. Printed in Madrid by Spain’s leading cartographer, it is predicated on a carefully edited synthesis of the best available geographical sources. All of metropolitan Portugal unfolds in great detail, showcasing a wealth of information over the land’s diverse topography. The map’s ‘Explicacion de las señales’, or legend, located in the upper right, identifies literally dozens of different features, including cities and settlements of various sizes, townships, country stores, government offices, hunting reservations, forts, river quays, bridges, parish churches, archbishoprics and bishoprics, monasteries of various orders, colleges, jurisdictional boundaries, mines (gold, silver, copper, iron and tin), as well as various noble domains. The map also features an extensive network of roads, based on the descriptions of Juan Batista de Castro, as explained in the ‘Nota’ in the lower left quadrant of the map. The Making of López’s Mapa General del Reyno de Portugal As Spain’s leading official cartographer, López was well aware that the mapping of Portugal had both particular practical and symbolic significance. Spain had a long and very complex relationship with its Iberian neighbor, most recently attempting to invade Portugal during the Fantastic War of 1762-3 (an effort thwarted by British intervention). Gaining an accurate impression of Portugal’s geography was of keen interest to both civilian officials and military leaders in Madrid, and López’s map was considered to be the authoritative map of Portugal available in Spain during the period spanning its creation up into the Napoleonic Wars. In devising the map, López faced a great challenge. He was already quite familiar with the geography of Portugal, as he earlier created the Mapa del Reyno de Portugal Construido según las más modernas memorias (1762), which was much smaller and less accurate than the present map. However, while certain areas of Portugal had been mapped to a relatively high degree of accuracy, no broadly accurate general map of the country existed. The turmoil in the wake of the Great Lisbon Earthquake (1755), the Távora Affair (1758) and the Fantastic War created a climate of instability in which the sponsorship of a survey of Portugal was impossible. On May 30, 1777, López applied to the Real Academia de la Historia for a license approving the publication of the map. In the process of the deliberations, on August 22, he submitted a document entitled "Relacíon de fuentes par Tomás López para la confeccíon de mapa del reino de Portugal", in which he explains his sources to Don Pedro Rodríguez Campomanes, the director of the Academia (and the dedicatee of the map), who was himself the author of fine map of Portugal. This document is summarized in the lower left quadrant of the present map. López’s sources were diverse and his letter indicates that he went to great lengths to carefully compare and analyze the best available maps in preparation of his own work. These included literally dozens of published and manuscript sources, such as Carlos de Grandprez’s Carta topográfica del patriarcado de Lisboa (1736); Pedro Gendrón’s Mapa de Portugal (1754); Pedro Rodríguez de Campomanes Mapa de Portugal (1762); Jacques-Nicolas Bellin’s Carte de Portugal (1762); Giovanni Rizzi-Zannoni’s Carte de Portugal (1762). López also studied written accounts of the geography of Portugal, including Gaspar Estazo’s Antigüedades de Portugal and Luís Caetano de Lima’s Geografia historica. López’s completed map represented a great accomplishment in that is was by far the most accurate and cleanly designed map of Portugal created to date. It remained an authoritativ

        The Seat of War in the West Indies containing New and Accurate Plans of the Havana, La Vera Cruz, Cartagena and Puerto Bello (taken from Spanish Draughts)

      W. Nicoll in St Pauls Church Yard, [c.1762]., London, - Rare map published during the War of Jenkin?Äôs Ear Engraving, with outline colour to the chart of the West Indies. This rare separately issued sheet was originally published during the War of Jenkin?Äôs Ear. This edition was reissued during the Seven Years?Äô War by William Nicoll. At the upper left is a general map of the West Indies, and the other nine plans and views show important ports throughout the region. Each of them are annotated with details of the defences and their military history. The plan at the upper right corner shows Porto Bello, where the British had won a famous victory in 1739. Admiral Vernon took part in a failed attempt to stop a Spanish treasure fleet sailing from Porto Bello in 1727, and subsequently claimed that he could take the port with just six ships. He was given the Jamaica command, and launched an expedition to Porto Bello in 1739, occupying the town for three weeks and destroying it as a viable port. The British accomplished the occupation with only three lives lost. Cartagena is included as an important stop on the Spanish bullion route (Vernon had failed to capture the town just before he took Porto Bello). St Augustine in Florida appears because of the part in played in General Oglethorpe?Äôs invasion of Florida. He took two settlements in the St John?Äôs River before being repelled by the defenders in St Augustine in 1740.The plan of Havana below has been ?Äúimproved from a plan of Admiral Vernon?Äôs?Äù and is accompanied by a coastal view: ?Äúthis particular combination of hydrographic chart and narrative coastal profile?Äù was often used in publications urging military action and showing the potential gains (Mancini). The religious settlements in Havana are carefully outlined. Given that they are Catholic institutions, they are not of any spiritual interest to a British audience; they represent the richest and most poorly guarded places on the island. The text underneath the images explains that ?Äúthe best and indeed only way to secure our navigation in the American seas . will be to seize some port or ports commanding the entrance of the Gulf of Florida . and it appears from the above chart that Havana is the only port in the West Indies fit for the purpose?Äù. The map was reissued in connection with the 1762 Battle of Havana, when the British held the city under siege for two months before it finally surrendered on 11 August. The capture of Havana, along with that of Manila shortly after, gave the British control of the capitals of the East and West Indies, and was widely celebrated in Britain. Their return in the 1763 Treaty of Paris contributed to the Treaty?Äôs unpopularity.Rare; there is only one institutional example of this edition, held at the University of Texas. 425 by 470mm.

Ab 1798 war er Professor für Physik an der Universität Bologna. Seine wissenschaftliche Tätigkeit war geprägt von der Beschäftigung mit dem Galvanismus und seinen medizinischen Anwendungen, mit der Konstruktion und Beleuchtung von Leuchttürmen sowie mit Experimenten zum Schutz des Menschen vor dem Feuer. - "... It was an influential book on galvanism, that presented for the first time a series of experiments in which the principles of Volta and Galvani were used together. The fine series of plates illustrated the experiments which involved bodies and heads of animals and humans. For the first time a description appears here of the magnetization of steel needles through connection to a voltaic circuit..." (Zitat) - Giovanni Aldini was a nephew of Luigi Galvani, whose treatise on muscular electricity he edited with notes in 1791. His scientific work was chiefly concerned with galvanism and its medical applications, with the construction and illumination of lighthouses, and with experiments for preserving human life and material objects from destruction by fire.
