      Florence, Italy:: Giuseppe Vanni,. 1766.. Print. Very good condition. Period hand-colored copper engraving from the [Natural History of the Birds Treated Systematically and Adorned with Copperplate Engraving Illustrations, in Miniature and Life-Size], 1766-1777. The work carries some interesting historical importance according to Peter Dance: "The production of its five massive folio volumes must have been one of the most remarkable publishing ventures ever undertaken in Florence. Begun in 1767, and [based on birds taken from the collection of Giovanni Gerini], it was completed ten years later. It was larger, better engraved and more vividly coloured than any previous work on birds, but these are not its only claim to fame. The attitudes of the birds themselves give this book its unique character. Strutting, parading, posturing, and occasionally flying....are birds whose real-life counterparts would surely disown them, and not without reason, for Manetti seems in these pictures to be depicting the human comedy, the habits and mannerisms of contemporary Italian society. His book may still be rated among the very greatest bird books, if only for its magnificent comicality" (S. Peter Dance, The Art of Natural History: Animal Illustrators and their Work. London 1978).

        Les Gasconismes corrigés. Ouvrage utile à toutes les personnes qui veulent parler et écrire correctement, et principalement aux jeunes gens, dont l'éducation n'est point encore formée.

      A Toulouse, Jean-Jacques Robert, 1766. - in-8. (1f.blanc). XX. 256pp. 1f. Broché, couverture muette de l'époque. Edition Originale rare, imprimée à Toulouse où l'auteur était professeur au Collège Royal, de cet ouvrage célèbre qui fut souvent réédité. "L'auteur de ce bon livre ne se propose pas de composer une grammaire, ni d'enseigner aux Gascons les beautés de la langue française : il travaille moins à leur apprendre à bien parler, qu'à ne pas parler mal. Un miroir ne dit pas quels ajustements il faut prendre pour plaire ; mais il avertit de ce qu'il faut ôter pour ne déplaire pas. L'auteur veut seulement rendre les Gascons attentifs à des gasconismes qui ne leur sont que trop familiers, et dont il est important qu'ils se corrigent, s'ils veulent éviter ces petites humiliations, auxquelles les personnes qui parlent mal sont exposées, surtout à Paris, où ces expressions impropres ne manquent pas de donner lieu à des railleries dont il est toujours désagréable d'être l'objet. Pour que ces remarques soient moins sèches, Desgrouais y a mêlé quelques anecdotes plaisantes ; et l'on trouve quelquefois , dans la même page , l'exemple d'un gasconisme et d'une gasconnade" (Barbier et Desessarts). Bel exemplaire non rogné et d'une grande fraîcheur. Barbier et Desessarts, Nouvelle bibliothèque d’un homme de goût, (1808-1817). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Theory of Perspective

      1766. COWLEY, John Lodge. The Theory of Perspective Demonstrated; in a Method Entirely New. By which the Several Planes, Lines, and Points, used in this Art, are shewn by Moveable Schemes, in the True Positions in which they are to be Considered. [6], xi, [1], 117, [1] pp. With 11 full-page geometric engravings printed on heavy paper, of which 10 are cut-out to demonstrate solid forms. In two volumes. 4to., 268 x 210 mm, bound in contemporary blue glazed paper boards, edges uncut. In half calf folding case, red label. London: Printed for T. Payne, 1766. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, second issue, of this rare scientific Cut-Out book. Cowley's Theory was designed as a geometrical primer with engraved diagrams that could be removed from the book to form solids, thus demonstrating the doctrines of the 11th, 12th, and 15th books of Euclid. The present work amends his Appendix to the Elements to Euclid (1758), and forms a new and more comprehensive attempt to explain the doctrines of planes as applicable to perspective; it is among the most elaborate and most unusual of all eighteenth-century works on geometry and perspective. Included are the eleven engraved plates, of which ten are cut-out to form regular and irregular solids, prisms, pyramids, cones, etc., each accompanied by Cowley's analytic text. Plate IX incorporates strands of coloured cotton thread to illustrate the various projected lines from a single vanishing point. Cowley's mathematical textbooks were extremely popular in their day, widely disseminated and well used, and are rarely found intact. As early as 1806 this work was recorded as "scarce" by Adam Clarke in The Bibliographical Miscellany (cf. Sotheran). Two issues of this first edition were published, one by Bennett in 1765, and the present one by T. Payne. Some spotting throughout, as is true in most copies. Overall, in superb, original condition. ESTC T178295. Vagnetti EIVb47. Lowndes II, 540. Not in Norman, Sotheran Bibliotheca Chemico-Mathematica, Honeyman Collection, Wheeler Gift, or Cajori.
