      Giuseppe Vanni,, Florence, Italy: 1766 - 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.

        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.

Tomo III: "In cui contiensi la polizia del Regno sotto Angioini, ed Aragonesi". Tomo IV: "In cui contiensi la politia del Regno sotto Austriaci". Quarta edizione della principale Opera del celebre storico e letterato Pietro Giannone (Ischitella di Napoli, 1676 - 1748), che dette alle stampe la "Storia civile" nel 1723 dopo venti anni di lavoro. Diverse e contrastanti interpretazioni sui fatti contenuti nel testo fecero sì che moltissime copie della prima edizione fossero distrutte, obbligando altresì l'Autore a lasciare in fretta il Regno. Passò a Trieste, a Lubiana, a Vienna ed a Venezia, mentre a Napoli venne scomunicato e il libro fu messo all'Indice. Perseguitato in tutta Europa, fu imprigionato nel 1736, e rimase in carcere fino alla fine dei suoi giorni. Ebbe riabilitazione postuma, e le sue opere furono ristampate numerose volte. Alla presente edizione il Pasquali fece seguire, nel 1768, due volumi delle Opere postume ed inedite del Giannone.

        Paradoxe sur les Femmes, ou l'on tache de prouver qu'elles ne sont pas de l'espece humaine.

      Cracovie [i.e. Paris], 1766.. In-12, plein veau mouchete de l'epoque, dos a nerfs orne de compartiments fleuronnes et cloisonnes, piece de titre de veau, tranches mouchetees, 76 p. Edition originale de cette traduction libre par Charles Clapies de "Disputatio perjucunda". Selon une legende vivace, des eveques auraient debattu de l'existence de l'ame des femmes lors des conciles de Macon (585), puis de Trente (1545). Parallelement Valens Acidalius publia anonymement en 1595 un pamphlet, dans lequel il caricaturait les raisonnements qui permettaient aux sociniens de contester le dogme de la divinite de J.-C. et que la meme rhetorique permettrait de prouver la non-humanite des femmes. Le pamphlet connut un large succes. En 1697, Pierre Bayle s'en fit complaisamment l'echo dans son 'Dictionnaire'. Jusqu'a cette edition, publiee en 1766, par Charles Clapies, docteur en medecine, accompagnee d'un historique et des notes. Ce livre - et les debats qu'il inspirait - attirerent l'attention de l'Eglise et le Pape Innocent X l'inscrivit a l'index par decret du 18 juin 1651. (Brunet. V, 759. Conlon, 'Siecle des Lumieres', 66:370. Gay, III, 626). Bel exemplaire, frais bien relie a l'epoque..

Born in Córdoba, Spain, Lucan (A.D. 39?-65) was the grandson of the elder Seneca, nephew of the younger Seneca, and the brother of the Gallio mentioned in Acts 18. He published the Pharsalia in A.D.. 62 or 63, but it seems likely that his poetic talent aroused the jealously of the vain Nero, as after its publication the emperor forbade him to write or even plead in the courts, and then later compelled him to commit suicide for alleged treason. The editio princeps of Lucan was printed in Rome by Sweynheym and Pannartz in 1469. The illustrated plates in this edition are after Gravelot, and the French translation is by M. Marmontel. Binding: Contemporary treed calf, spine gilt extra with badge of a thistle in compartments; red leather labels. Marbled endpapers. All edges red. Provenance: Small booklabel of William Salloch on rear pastedown. Binding as above, gilt somewhat dimmed; some chipping of leather to corners and spine tips, and endpapers rubbed. Internally generally clean, with some browning from turn-ins and a few spots of soiling. Bookplate on front pastedowns.

        A Succinct View of the Origin of Our Colonies, With Their Civil State

      1766. 1766 Pamphlet Questioning the Extent of Parliamentary Supremacy [Bollan, William (c.1710-1776)]. A Succinct View of the Origin of our Colonies, With Their Civil State, Founded by Queen Elizabeth, Corroborated by Succeeding Princes, And Confirmed by Acts of Parliament; Whereby the Nature of the Empire Established in America, And the Errors of Various Hypotheses Formed Thereupon, May be Clearly Understood. With Observations on the Commercial, Beneficial and Perpetual Union of the Colonies with This Kingdom. Being an Extract from an Essay Lately Published, Entitled The Freedom of Speech and Writing, &c. London: S.n., 1766. [ii], 46 pp. Octavo (7" x 4-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent stiff marbled wrappers, printed title panel to front cover. Moderate toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, small chip to fore-edge of title page, internally clean. * Only edition (in this form). Bollan was a lawyer and agent for Colony of Massachusetts. A Succinct View is an extract from Bollan's The Freedom of Speech and Writing upon Public Affairs Considered, a longer work first published in 1766, that discusses the role of parliamentary supremacy. It is a subtle and somewhat subversive work. Bollan begins by asserting "that the 'care of common rights' should be left to Parliament. In the midst of what was essentially an apologia for parliamentary supremacy, Bollan thuis implied, first, that some noncommon rights existed, and second, that protecting such rights might be within the purview of an authority other than Parliament" (LaCroix). OCLC locates several copies, but none in law libraries. LaCroix, The Ideological Origins of American Federalism 242 (n94). Sabin, A Dictionary of Books Relating to America 93387.

Schöne, zeitgenössische Ganzlederbände auf 5 Bünden geheftet, mit geprägten Rückenschildchen.. Cocceji (1679-1755) hat entscheidend den Beginn der Justizreform des Aufklärungszeitalters in Preußen mitgeprägt. Nach dem Studium der Rechtswissenschaft an der Universität Frankfurt an der Oder trat er im Jahre 1704 in den preußischen Justizdienst ein. In den Jahren 1711 bis 1713 war er der Vertreter Preußens an der Visitation des Reichskammergerichts. In dieser Zeit entstand sein vorliegendes berühmtestes Werk: das "jus civile controversum". Das Werk ist in der Legalordnung der Digesten gegliedert. Innerhalb dieser Legalordnung werden Quaestionen an den Beginn gestellt, die in kontroverser Manier beantwortet werden: Affirm(andum) - Obj(ectum) - Resp(ondum). In der Regel werden an das Respondum noch weitere Gegenargumente aufgereiht, denen wiederum eine Antwort folgt. - Samuel de Cocceji war Sohn von Henricus Coccejus, des Ministers, Chefs de Justice und Großkanzlers Friedrichs des Großen.

        Memoirs of Count Lally,

      London: Printed by Charles Kiernan, for F. Newbery,, 1766. from His embarking for the East Indies, as Commander in Chief of the French Forces in that Country, to his being sent Prisoner of War to England, after the Surrender of Pondicherry. Octavo (205 x 124 mm). Modern half sheep, old marbled boards, raised bands to spine, titles to spine gilt, all edges sprinkled red. Bound with the half-title. One engraved folding map of Lally's military operations. Contemporary ownership inscription to title page. Extremities lightly rubbed, a few minor scuff marks to boards, endpapers a little browned, mild offsetting from map, text block slightly foxed throughout. A very good copy. First edition. A contemporary account of the French campaigns in India during the Seven Years' War in which, Lally (1702-66), a French general of Irish descent, commanded the French forces. Initially successful in pushing the British forces back from Pondicherry to Madras, Lally later found himself defeated by Eyre Coote (1726-83) at the Battle of Wandiwash in 1760. By 1761, Lally was forced to surrender to Coote after the latter's siege of Pondicherry. This defeat effectively obliterated French control over Indian territories and led to Lally being accused of treason by the French court. Taken as a prisoner of war to London, Lally ill-advisedly requested he be allowed to return to France to face the charges in person; he was subsequently judged, sentenced, and executed in May 1766. This copy comes from the library of Harriot Beauclerk (1777-1837), the British actress, banker, and later duchess of St Albans, with her bookplate to front pastedown.

Manque aux mors supérieurs en tête des tomes I et IV. Manque en coiffe du tome III. Coiffe de queue du tome IV arrachée. Quelques coins émoussés.

Ce qui caractérise l'écriture des Journées amusantes, c'est la richesse encyclopédique et érudite, caractéristique, et qui a finalement desservit l'oeuvre dans le temps l'oeuvre se voulant, avec un certain archaïsme voulu, un hommage à la littérature galante française du XVIIe siècle.

The first printing was issued in Horeki 6 [1757], but this issue is also every well printed. Very scarce work - few copies are located in KSSM.
