GRASLIN
London: (no publisher), 1767. Octavo (192 x 120 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, spine ruled and decorated gilt, red morocco label, marbled endpapers and edges, silk ribbon marker. A few wormholes to the front joint, repair to head of spine, corners, and a couple of patches to rear board; pale dampmark to lower margin of a few leaves, and the odd spot; a very good copy. Printer's device on title, decorative vignette chapter headings at the beginning of each part. Rare first edition of one of the most important works written against the physiocrats. Graslin (1727–1790) was, from 1757, "receveur général des fermes" in Nantes. He was a steady and consistent opponent of the tenets of the physiocrats on the subject of the net product. Some physiocrats considered him a greater adversary than Forbonnais. This essay was written to prove two propositions: the first, that the produce of land is wealth even when there is no "produit net", namely when the cost of cultivation is equal to the value of the produce, and the second, that industry applied to raw material is as much wealth as the raw material itself. According to Schumpeter, "Graslin's reputation never was what it should have been because he put so much emphasis upon criticism of the physiocrats – which is the best ever proffered – that his readers were apt to overlook his positive contribution. Actually, his Essai analytique presents the outlines of a comprehensive theory of wealth as a theory of total income rather than of income net of all producers' expenses including wages – a not inconsiderable improvement considering th … [Click Below for Full Description]

François-Antoine Chevrier (ou de Chevrier) était un libelliste lorrain né à Nancy le 11 octobre 1721 et mort à Rotterdam le 26 juin 1762. Libelliste acerbe, Chevrier a passé le plus clair de sa vie d'écrivain à révéler au grand jour les mesquineries et les intrigues de son temps, que tout le monde taisait, principalement dans le milieu théâtral. Adolphe Van Bever le définit comme « le plus satirique et le moins sociable, il faut bien le dire, des écrivains lorrains ». Il se fait d'abord connaître par des pamphlets, dont un contre le duc Stanislas Leszczyński, qui lui vaut d'être exilé. Réfugié à Paris, il travaille pour le théâtre et voyage beaucoup, souvent contre son gré, poursu … [Click Below for Full Description]

1767. Notre blog : https://librairie-trois-plumes.blogspot.fr/ Notre mail : benoit@troisplumes.fr Recueil in-8 contenant : · Helvetius, Le Bonheur, poème en six chants. Londres, s.n., 1772. [4]-CXX-116p. Edition originale posthume, sans le feuillet d'errata qui manque souvent. La longue préface est due à Saint-Lambert qui a retrouvé la pièce dans les papiers d'Helvetius. · Claude-Marie Guyétant, Le Génie vengé. La Haye & Paris, s.n., 1780. [2]-16p. Edition originale.

Edition originale rare du texte sur le régiment d'Auvergne et Louis d'Assas, célèbre chevalier mort lors de la bataille de KlosterKampen en 1760, bien complet de son frontispice dépliant. Cet ouvrage ne se rencontre que très rarement et a bénéficié de deux tirages qui ne diffèrent que par le nom de l'auteur sur la page de titre (L*** au lieu de Lamy comme sur le nôtre). L'ouvrage est publié tardivement (23 ans après la mort d'Assas) et s'inscrit, après Voltaire en 1769, dans une lignée d'ouvrages sur Assas et le régiment. Le frontispice représente « Le Curtius Français ou la mort du chevalier d'Assas ». En effet, la victoire eut lieu car avant de mourir, le chevalier aurait eu le temps de dire : « A moi, l'Auvergne, c'est l'ennemi ! » (version contestée).

Saverio Manetti, Violante Vanni & Lorenzo Lorenzi
Florence, 1767. This originally hand-colored engraving is from Saverio Manetti's work "Storia naturale degli Uccelli" or "A Natural History of Birds". The prints were drawn and etched by Violante Vanni and Lorenzo Lorenzi with the text penned by Saverio Manetti. The work was published in Florence, Italy between 1767 and 1776 by F. Mouck, C. Cambiagi, and Giuseppe Vanni. --- "Storia naturale degli Uccelli" was 'larger, better engraved and more vividly coloured than any previous book on birds', notable for its lively posturing of the specimens which seem to reflect 'the habits and mannerisms of contemporary Italian society' (Dance). It is "one of the half-dozen or so Great Bird Books in the collector's sense" (Fine Bird Books). Dance p.70; Nissen IVB 588; Wood p.450; Fine Bird Books p.10; Zimmer I, 241. --- Each bird engraving shows remarkable personality and detail, many of the birds often taking on an almost human personality type. Manetti drew his work predominantly from real specimens. The work was one of the largest ornithology undertakings to that point in time. --- This beautiful plate comes from "Storia naturale degli uccelli", of which Peter Dance writes "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.

Saverio Manetti, Violante Vanni & Lorenzo Lorenzi
Florence, 1767. This originally hand-colored engraving is from Saverio Manetti's work "Storia naturale degli Uccelli" or "A Natural History of Birds". The prints were drawn and etched by Violante Vanni and Lorenzo Lorenzi with the text penned by Saverio Manetti. The work was published in Florence, Italy between 1767 and 1776 by F. Mouck, C. Cambiagi, and Giuseppe Vanni. --- "Storia naturale degli Uccelli" was 'larger, better engraved and more vividly coloured than any previous book on birds', notable for its lively posturing of the specimens which seem to reflect 'the habits and mannerisms of contemporary Italian society' (Dance). It is "one of the half-dozen or so Great Bird Books in the collector's sense" (Fine Bird Books). Dance p.70; Nissen IVB 588; Wood p.450; Fine Bird Books p.10; Zimmer I, 241. --- Each bird engraving shows remarkable personality and detail, many of the birds often taking on an almost human personality type. Manetti drew his work predominantly from real specimens. The work was one of the largest ornithology undertakings to that point in time. --- This beautiful plate comes from "Storia naturale degli uccelli", of which Peter Dance writes "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.
