        Carta degli Stati di S. M. il Re di Sardegna

      1765. Carta murale del Piemonte che ha come riferimento la mitica carta del Borgonio, quest'ultima già al suo tempo era talmente rara come reperibilità da indurre gli ufficiali a procurarsi degli esemplari manoscritti. Nella sua carta il Dury apporta delle modifiche alla Savoia ed in particolare alla zona relativa al Monte Bianco, dovute alla consultazione di diverse carte successive al Borgonio. Alcuni piccoli fori di tarlo. La carta si presenta già montata.Riferimenti: Laura e Giorgio Aliprandi, Le Grandi Alpi nella cartografia 1482 - 1885, vol. I, pag. 107,108 mm 1960x1620

        Rovine delle Terme Antoniniane

      1765. Acquaforte e bulino, 1765, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Della serie "Vedute di Roma". Esemplare nel primo stato di tre, della contemporanea tiratura romana. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con la tipica filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB", con margini, consueta piega centrale verticale, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Giovanni Battista Piranesi nasce a Mogliano Veneto o Mogliano di Mestre, vicino Venezia, nel 1720 e muore a Roma nel 1778. Si può senza dubbio considerare come il più notevole incisore del secolo, ed il maggiore artista in questa materia nel periodo che va da Rembrandt a Goya. La sua opera incisa consta di oltre 1000 lavori, realizzati dal 1743 (anno della pubblicazione della prima opera), e l'anno della sua morte. La sua produzione si può dividere in più periodi: un primo nel quale si dedica ai lavori di architettura fantastica nel quale realizza tra l'altro Prima Parte di Architetture, e Prospettive inventate ed incise da Gio. Batta Piranesi Architetto Veneziano dedicate al Sig. Nicola Giobbe (1743), i celebri Grotteschi (1750), oltre al suo capolavoro assoluto, le Carceri d'invenzione, pubblicate dal suo editore Bouchard nel 1750. Nel periodo successivo rivolge la sua attenzione sui lavori di archeologia pubblicando testi come : Trofei di Ottaviano Augusto (1753), Le Rovine del Castello dell'Acqua Giulia (1761), Le Lapidi Capitoline (1762), Il Campo Marzio dell'Antica Roma, Opera di G. B. Piranesi socio della reale società degli antiquari di Londra (1762), e dei lavori sul Lago di Albano, su Cori e Paestum, ma che raggiungono il massimo con Le Antichità Romane, opera in quattro volumi che unisce ai lavori di archeologia, quelli straordinari di fantasia. Un ultimo periodo caratterizza il Piranesi nel suo aspetto più commerciale di editore, quando già famosissimo realizza oltre duecento lastre decorative di antichità, raccolte nell'opera Diverse maniere d'adornare i cammini (1769) e Vasi, candelabri, cippi, sarcofagi, tripodi, lucerne, ed ornamenti antichi disegnati ed incisi dal Cav. Gio. Batt. Piranesi (1778). Inoltre, nel corso di tutta la sua carriera artistica, il Piranesi disegna, incide e compone quella che oggi risulta sicuramente la sua opera più imponente e magistrale, le celebri Vedute di Roma. "Etching with engraving, 1765, signed at lower right. From the Vedute di Roma. Example of the first state of three, form the contemporary Roman edition. A great impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with ""double encircled fleur de lys"" watermark, with full margins, very good condition. The whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building. The present works are all part of an album of the final edition, printed in Rome between 1770 and 1780. Magnificent works, printed on contemporary laid paper, with ""double circle and fleur - de - lis with letters CB"" watermark (if present), with full margins, in excellent condition. This example doesn't bear the usual central fold, with the string holes on the left." Roma Rome Hind 76, I/III. 700 445

      Philadelphia: Printed by Henry Miller, 1765, 1765. First and only edition. Stoddard & Whitesell 176; Evans 9983; Sabin 27658.

        Contes moraux

      Chez Merlin 1765 - - Chez Merlin, A Paris 1765, In-12 (9,7x16,7cm), (2) xvj, 345pp. et (6) 376pp. et (6) 312pp., 3 tomes en 3 volumes reliés. - Première édition illustrée de la charmante suite de Gravelot. Cette édition est parue également au format in-8. Bien que la suite de Gravelot est presque toujours au nombre de 23 figures, on trouve plusieurs exemplaires de 1765 avec une suite de 17 figures, à l'instar de notre exemplaire. Dans un exemplaire en maroquin citron, on ne saurait légèrement affirmer qu'il s'agit d'un simple manque, il est plus vraisemblable de penser qu'un certain nombre parmi les tous premiers exemplaires a été mis en vente alors que les gravures n'étaient pas encore toutes imprimées, ou même gravées. L'illustration comprend un portrait par Cochin (gravé par Saint-Aubin), un titre-frontispice de Gravelot gravé par Duclos et répété dans les trois volumes, et 17 figures par Gravelot (gravées par Baquoy, Legrand, Le Mire, Le Veau, de Longueil, Pasquier.). " Les figures de Gravelot sont parmi les plus jolies que ce maître ait produites" (Cohen) Reliure en plein maroquin citron d'époque. Dos lisses ornés à la grotesque de rinceaux et feuillages. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches dorées. 4 coins émoussés. 2 pièces de titre décolorées. P. 172 du tome II avec une coupure sans manque. Seuls les pages de titres gravées ont été conservées dans les deux premiers tomes, elles n'ont pas été doublées par les pages de titre classiques. Dans le tome III, absence du faux-titre. Rare condition en maroquin citron d'époque. Les contes de marmontel eurent un succès relativement durable et lanèrent surtout une vogue suivie par de nombreux auteurs : La Dixmerie, Baculard d'Arnaud, Genlis, etc. Dans ce genre, il s'agit en fait d'exalter une vertu au moyen d'un court récit ; après l'adhésion du XVIIIe, le genre tombera dans la ittérature jeunesse dès 1800. Marmontel joue cependant avec la licence, et ses contes seront condamnés par la Sorbonne en 1768 pour intolérance religieuse, car c'est bien moins d'une morale bien pensante dont il s'agit, que celle de l'auteur. Par ailleurs, l'auteur ne réunit sous cette dénomination que tardivement les histoires, contes et récits qu'il avait publiés par le passé dans le Mercure de France, et in fine, nombre de contes ne correspondent pas à l'intitulé.

        The constitution of the Loyal and Friendly Society of the Blue and Orange.

      Manuscript* on paper, 4to., on 11 written-up pages, written in a calligraphic hand in red, blue and black inks, numerous blank leaves, the paper watermarked 'LVG', bound in contemporary calf, neatly rebacked and spine lettered gilt. In very good state of preservation The Loyal and Friendly Society of the Blew (Blue) and Orange was founded between 1733 and 1736 by officers of the King's Own Royal Regiment to commemorate the Revolution of 1688 and the accession of the House of Hanover. The Society is possibly the first Regimental Association relating to the King's Own. The Society had formal dinners four times each year, the last recorded meeting being in 1801. As well as celebrating the Revolution and the accession of the Hanoverians in 1714 (1st August), the Society also kept the anniversaries of the Battle of the Boyne (11th July) and the Battle of Culloden (16th April) where they sustained most of the government casualties. The present manuscript was prepared probably at the time when the Colonel of the Regiment was the Hon. Robert Brundenell, just a few years after the Regiment had distinguished itself at Guadeloupe (1759). The manuscript comprises: 1. Rules to be observ'd by the members of the Loyal & Friendly Society of the Blue and Orange. 2. Abstract of the Proceedings with regard to the form & ceremony of installing a person at his being admitted a member of the Loyal and Friendly Society of the Blue and Orange. 3. The Declaration (the oath made by the new member). 4. Minutes of meetings on various dates between November 1754 and February 1765. The final meeting recorded here, which took place on 21st February 1765, is of some particular interest. It records a meeting of the Society called to consider a request by Colonel Robert Melville, "Governor of the ceded islands in the West Indies" for a "deputation to enable him to appoint officers & constitute a Society in the West Indies, in order to admit members into the Loyal & Friendly Society of the Blue & Orange, the said Governor Melvill being himself a member". The request was duly granted, under certain conditions, by an unanimous vote. Robert Melville (1723-1809),was a distinguished army officer and colonial governor. It was in July 1763, after the Treaty of Paris, that he was appointed as the new Governor of the Ceded Islands (Grenada, the Grenadines, Tobago, Dominica and St. Vincent). His seven-year governorship was largely successful and he was promoted to Major-General in August 1766. He was a prominent freemason and an energetic supporter of the Scots Corporation in London as well as other Scottish charities. * Apparently written by a J. Barnard with his notation "J. Barnard 4th Regt. Fecit" at foot of third leaf. We are informed by the curator of the King's Own Royal Regiment museum at Lancaster (Mr. Peter Donnelly) that the only related documents in the possession of the museum are dated a little after 1801.

        MR. JOHNSON'S PREFACE TO HIS EDITION OF SHAKESPEAR'S PLAYS

      London: Printed for J. and R. Tonson et al., 1765. FIRST SEPARATE EDITION n. This is a well-preserved copy of the separate edition of Samuel Johnson's lauded "Preface" to "The Plays of William Shakespeare," complete with the half title. The "Preface" originally accompanied Johnson's eight-volume edition of Shakespeare (also published in 1765), a project that took the good doctor 20 years to complete, partly because of the scope of the undertaking and partly because of his own procrastination. Courtney & Smith notes that "Adam Smith is said to have called it 'the most manly piece of criticism that was ever published in any country.'" Indeed, the "Preface" seems to have been the most highly regarded and influential section of Johnson's entire corpus of work and gave "great impetus to Shakespearian study." It is quite likely that the "Preface" was one of the last sections Johnson delivered to the printer, as suggested by the presence of bracketed signatures in the original printing. That the editors saw fit to publish a separate edition of the "Preface" so close on the heels of "The Plays" speaks to the immediate popularity and acclaim it generated when first appearing as part of the larger work. The half title is not infrequently missing, a fact that in the present case is more than usually significant since it contains the price (one shilling), showing that the work was separately published. It is more than conceivable that the "M. Dawes" who signed the title page was the miscellaneous writer Manasseh Dawes (d. 1829), known in particular for his "Essay on Intellectual Liberty," published in 1780.. 218 x 130 mm. (8 1/4 x 5"). 2 p.l., v-lxxii pp. FIRST SEPARATE EDITION. 20th century speckled calf with a simple gilt border by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (with their stamp-signature on the front turn-in), raised bands on spine, red morocco spine title label with gilt lettering, and gilt edges (joints expertly repaired). Flower vase ornament on the title page. Ownership signature of "M. Dawes" on the title page. Courtney & Smith, p. 107; Fleeman 65.10SP/2b; ESTC T-6255. Corners and edges somewhat rubbed, but covers very well preserved, marginal loss to the upper corner of leaf a2, lightly toned throughout, but otherwise a very clean and appealing copy. This is a well-preserved copy of the separate edition of Samuel Johnson's lauded "Preface" to "The Plays of William Shakespeare," complete with the half title. The "Preface" originally accompanied Johnson's eight-volume edition of Shakespeare (also published in 1765), a project that took the good doctor 20 years to complete, partly because of the scope of the undertaking and partly because of his own procrastination.

        Manuscript map, titled within the map:] The Road from Boston to Albany by way of Springfield and Great Barrington . [and] . by way of Northampton to Albany

      [New England 1765 - Pen-and-ink on laid paper, with the road coloured in sepia and with water elements in green, with a yellow wash border within the gradients, on 17 sheets. (Minor repairs, one small blank section in the upper border lacking). Provenance: Sir Francis Bernard, Colonial Governor of Massachusetts (1712-1779); by descent to Robert Spencer Bernard, Nether Winchendon House, Buckinghamshire, England. Among the earliest American road maps: an important large-scale survey accomplished for the Colonial Governor of Massachusetts in 1765. In November 1969, noted historian of cartography William P. Cumming discovered in the family home of Sir Francis Bernard "a collection of maps that, in purpose and type, differed so markedly from the more usual military, coastal and general colonial maps of the time that it stands out in both interest and importance. These were domestic maps, of a gentleman's estates and the roads to them . Probably Sir Francis's most important contribution to cartography was to have careful surveys made of the roads from Boston . westward to Albany, New York, on a one-inch to two-thirds-mile scale. It was along part of this Albany to Boston road that the American rebels dragged the heavy cannon captured at Fort Ticonderoga that, set up on Dorchester Heights, forced General Howe's evacuation of Boston in 1776 . No route maps as detailed as these, except for two short New Jersey road maps, are known for any other section of the eastern seaboard until those of Christopher Colles in 1789" (Cumming, p. 29-30). The present manuscript map depicts the road across Massachusetts, though does not extend as far as Albany. The road, divided into miles throughout, extends from Boston to Springfield, where it splits into two westward routes to Albany: the first a more southerly route via Great Barrington, Massachusetts, which ends on the present map at a point approximately 33 miles from Albany; and the more northerly route which is shown on the map as far as Northampton, just past the Connecticut River. The map is done on a very large scale of approximately 2/3 of a mile to the inch, with towns, rivers, mountains, residences, meetinghouses, and numerous taverns identified along the way. Cumming records this map (though as four separate entries [i.e. MP21-24, though with an incorrect sheet count]). Sir Francis Bernard became the Colonial Governor of Massachusetts in late 1759, shortly after British troops were victorious in the Battle of Quebec. That decisive French and Indian War victory opened a vast region for renewed English settlement and trade, thus necessitating the need for more accurate surveys of the roads. The present manuscript map was surveyed and drawn by talented military mapmaker Francis Miller in 1765 for Bernard, the details of which are recounted by Bernard in a 1766 letter to Lord Barrington: "I am desired to certify to your Lordship, that at the beginning of the Year 1764 Genl Gage at my Request, gave Leave to Ensign Francis Miller of the 45th regiment, then stationed in Newfoundland to come to Boston to assist me in some Works of Public Surveying, which I had undertaken in pursuance of resolutions of the general Assembly & partly by Orders from England. Mr Miller being then at an outpost & not easily relieved did not arrive at Boston till Nov in that Year, when the Season for actual Surveying was over. He was employed that Winter & Spring following in protracting the Surveys made that Summer, among which was a compleat Route from Fort Pownal on the River Penobscot to Quebec, & some other curious explorations of the Eastern parts of New England hitherto unknown to Englishmen: of which, elegant Maps drawn by Mr Miller have been transmitted to the Board of Trade. Early in the Last Summer I employed M' Miller (having previously informed Gen! Gage of the Intention) to make an actual Survey from Boston to Albany & back again by another Way being near 200 Miles; & afterwards from Boston to Penobscot being above 200 Miles;

It includes Shakespeare’s last will and testament, perhaps its earliest publication. It is the rock upon which countless –nearly all modern –editions are founded. His preface marks the induction of Shakespeare into the canon: "The Poet, of whose works I have undertaken the revision, may now begin to assume the dignity of an ancient, and claim the privilege of established fame and prescriptive veneration. He has long outlived his century, the term commonly fixed as the test of literary merit." (Vol. I, A2r; editor’s preface.) Although contem [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Lilio-Gladiolus bifolius¿ (Plate 39)

      Nuremberg 1765 - 19" x 14" EHRET, Georg Dionysius. "Lilio-Gladiolus bifolius¿ (Plate 39)" Approximately 19 x 14 inches. From a selection of hand-colored plates from Plantae Selectae. Engraving. Nuremberg; ca. 1765. Born in Heidelberg in 1710, he originally worked as a gardener and practiced drawing in his spare time. Though constantly travelling, Ehret was able to accumulate a large group of friends as well as important benefactors. A Regensburg banker named Leskenkohl was one of these people who Ehret was in service of. It was during this period that Ehret met Dr. Christoph Trew. Trew was to remain a friend and patron of Ehret's throughout his life. Though these were not his only patrons. Ehret's list of benefactors include the most brilliant and generous amateurs of the day, the Margrave of Baden, the Duchess of Portland, Bernard de Jussieu in Paris, and both Sir Joseph Banks and Dr. Hans Sloan in London where he wound up settling. It is in England that he became the only foreigner to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. Though he worked in a limited field, botanical illustration, Ehret was able to become a master. His engravings are some of the most sought after and important botanical prints in the world. It is no wonder that he became one of the foremost illustrators of botanical images of his time, at a time when it can be said that art of this nature was highly prized and passionately collected.

        Theoria motus corporum solidorum seu rigidorum ex primis nostrae cognitionis principiis stabilita et ad omnes motus, qui in huiusmodi corpora cadere possunt, accomodata.

      Rostock und Greifswald Röse 1765 - (21,5 x 17 cm). (32) 520 S. Mit 15 Kupfertafeln. Dekorativer Halblederband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe von Eulers zweitem großen Werk zur analytischen Mechanik. - "The 'Theoria motus corporum solidorum', published almost thirty years later (1765), is related to the Mechanica. In the introduction to this work, Euler gave a new exposition of punctual mechanics and followed Maclaurin`s example (1742) in projecting the forces onto the axes of a fixed orthogonal rectilinear system. Establishing that the instantaneous motion of a solid body might be regarded as composed of rectilinear translation and instant rotation, Euler devoted special attention to the study of rotatory motion. Euler thus laid the mathematical foundation of the numerous studies on variational principles of mechanics and physics which are still being carried out" (DSB). - Stellenweise etwas stockfleckig bzw. gebräunt. Titel mit 3 alten Stempeln. Einband gering berieben. Rücken sauber erneuert.
