      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]
