        L'Histoire Naturelle éclaircie dans une de ses parties principales l'ornithologie, qui traite des oiseaux de terre, de mer et de riviere

      Debure Pere, Paris 1767 - (11 5/8 x 8 5/8 inches). Half-title. xii, [4], 464pp. 31 hand-colored engraved plates, engraved by and after Martinet. Contemporary green morocco, covers bordered with a triple gilt fillet, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Provenance: Mark Masterman Sykes (vellum gilt booklabel) A very fine copy of the first French edition of the ornithological portions of Ray's `Synopsis methodica avium & piscium' (London, 1713), here in its most desirable form with the plates hand-coloured. A translation of John Ray's posthumous work in Latin, Synopsis Avium (1713), this edition greatly augmented by François Salerne with his own observations and others taken from Belon, Aldrovanus, Willughby, Gesner and Linnaeus. "The whole constitutes a work on ornithology of considerable value, furnishing a description of many species of birds, their habits, physical characters, vulgar names," (Wood) and other information. Of further note are the illustrations, engraved by and after Martinet. The present copy is one only a few deluxe examples with hand coloured plates. The "Avertissement" mentions (English translation follows): "Ce Livre est orné de trente-une Planches, qui représentent la figure de cent Oiseaux. Ces Planches sont supérieurement executes par un des plus habiles Artistes que nous ayons en ce genre? Ils ont tous été dessinès & graves d'après nature? Comme les Planches les mieux gravées ne sauroient marquer parfaitement les couleurs naturelles des objets qu'elles représentent, le Librarire avertit les Amateurs & les Curieux, qu'il a fait colorier d'après nature un petit nombre d'Exemplaires des Planches de cet Ouvrage: on y verra les Oiseaux avec toute la beauté, la vivacité & les differentes nuances de leurs couleurs. Ces Planches sont peintes & coloriées d'apès nature, avec le plus grand soin. Chaque Exemplaire ainsi peint & colorié se vendra 150 liv. relié magnifiquement en maroquin." (p. viii). [This book is decorated with 31 plates, which include one hundred figures of birds. These plates are executed in a superior fashion by one of the best artists that we have working in this field? They are all drawn and engraved after nature? As even the best engravings cannot adequately portray the natural colours of their subjects, the Publishers advise both the amateur and the dilettanti, that they have had a small number of sets of the plates to this work coloured from nature: one is thus able to appreciate the full beauty of the birds, their liveliness and the range of the colouring. These plates are drawn and coloured from nature, in the best possible taste. Each example so coloured will be offered for sale at 150 liv., magnificently bound in morocco.] Anker 414; Cottrell 16l; Fine Birds Books (1990) p. 133; Keynes Ray 106; Nissen IVB 757; Nissen SVB 397; Ronsil 2683; Thiébaud 823.

        The Confessional: Or a Full and Free Inquiry into the Right, Utility, Edification, and Success, Of Establishing Systematical Confessions of Faith and Doctrine in Protestant Churches

      London: Printed for S. Bladon, 1767. xliii, [1], xciii, [1], 410pp. Contemporary red morocco, gilt, by John Matthewman for Thomas Hollis, with gilt decorative toolling after designs by Cipriani: caduceus to upper board, rod of Aesculapius to spine, a branch to lower board. Smoke prints of Britannia and an owl in black on blank fly-leaves at front and rear respectively, as occasionally seen in Hollis bindings. Ink inscription of the author's name, Francis Blackburne, to rear. Bookplate of Josephine Dockard Drysdale to verso of FFEP. Slightly rubbed, some fading to spine. Thomas Hollis (1720-1774), English republican philosopher and biblio-philanthropist was influential in the publication of the first three editions of Archdeacon Francis Blackburne's politically and theologically incendiary work The Confessional. Hearing of the manuscript attack on the restrictive conformity of Anglican doctrine and specifically the 39 Articles through Bishop Law, Hollis commissioned Andrew Miller to procure and publish the work. Miller duly succeeded, first publishing the work in 1766, apparently with 'signs of Hollis' influence' in the design of the title page (Bond, W.H. Thomas Hollis of Lincoln's Inn. Cambridge, 1990), albeit with the name of his sometime associate Samuel Bladon to the imprint. A transatlantic pamphlet war involving Archbishop Secker, Caleb Fleming and Blackburne's son-in-law John Disney (eventual beneficiary of the Hollis estate) followed the first edition, provoking publication of this second in 1767 and a third edition in 1770. The connection between Hollis and Blackburne persisted, with the latter compiling Memoirs of Thomas Hollis (London, 1780). Copies of all three editions of The Confessional were acquired by Hollis for distribution in Europe and America, and several similarly bound examples are held in the libraries at Princeton, St Andrews and of course at Harvard, who were major beneficiaries of Holli's donations. This item was possibly lot 361, Sothebys 1956 Hely Hutchinson sale - else another identically bound copy with the same tooling. Sawyer, £16 ESTC T67379.. Second Edition. 8vo.

        Prinz Heinrich von Preußen

      1767. . Georg Friedrich Schmidt (1712 Schönerlinde bei Berlin - 1775 Berlin). Prinz Heinrich von Preußen. Nach Carle van Loo, 1767. Radierung auf starkem Bütten, 50,5 x 36 cm, unten rechts in der Platte signiert "Grave par G. F. Schmidt, Graveur du Roy 1767.". Wessely 49 II (von III). Vor dem Doppelpunkt zwischen "Roy" und Jahreszahl. Ausgezeichneter Druck mit schmalem Rändchen. Geringe Papierschäden und Knitterspuren an der linken oberen Ecke außerhalb der Darstellung, leicht angestaubt, sonst von sehr guter Erhaltung. zum Werk Der nach einem Ölgemälde von Charles-Amedee-Philippe van Loo angefertigte Kupferstich zeigt den 39jährigen Prinzen und jüngeren Bruder Friedrichs II., Heinrich von Preußen, in einem repräsentativen Arrangement, wie es Hyacinthe Rigaud, an dem sich Schmidt in Paris geschult hatte, auf vollendete Weise entwickelt hat. In vollem Ornament, mit dem Hohen Orden vom Schwarzen Adler versehen, 'thront' der Prinz unter einem weiten, im barocken Gestus pneumatisch aufwehenden Baldachinstoff. Das hinter ihm aufwirbelnde, in einer Dreiecksform auf seine Schulterpartie zulaufende Tuch bildet den Fond, vor dem der Kopf des Prinzen - wie in einem für sich bestehenden Porträt - freigestellt ist. Den herrschaftlichen-barocken Gestus relativierend sitzt Prinz Heinrich mit elegant überschlagenen Beinen da und wendet sich in einladender Gestik an den Betrachter. Trotz dieser beinahe familiär-intimen Situation verbleibt der Prinz aber dennoch in herrschaftlichen Unnahbarkeit, was durch den parallel zur Beinhaltung verlaufenden Paradedegen unterstrichen wird, der die ästhetische Grenze zum Betrachter hin markiert. Schmidt gelingt es, die ganz besondere Farbqualität eines van Loo in das Medium der Druckgrafik zu übersetzten. Zum einen, indem er die spezifischen Stoffqualitäten zur Erscheinung bringt - sei es der haptisch wirkende Fellbesatz oder die im Licht changierende Seide - und zum anderen durch die meisterhafte Taillierung der anschwellen und abschwellenden Kupferstichlineaturen, die der Darstellung eine innere Fluktuation verleihen, aus der sich die zugleich lebendige wie lebensnahe Wirkung des Porträtierten speist.

        Figures De La Bible, Conenues En Conq Cens Tableaux, Graves D'apres Les Desseins De Raphael, & Des Plus Grands Maitres, Accompagnes D'une Courte Explication Pour l'instruction De La Jeunesse

      Paris: G. Desprez. 1767. 4to (28 cm tall). H Hard Cover. Fair. A worn and incomplete copy of this collection of more than five hundred copper plate engravings of scenes from the Old and New Testaments. This copy contains 454 of the 500 half-page plates plus a full page frontis, title page vignette and quarter-page engraving at the beginning of the Discours Preliminaire - it is missing 46 of the 328 plates from the Old Testament and none from the New Testament. We are selling this as a collection of plates only, as there is quite a bit of damage to the text, with many ragged edges and large chips. The plates are in generally very good condition with some (perhaps ten or twelve) having chips in the margins rather close to the printed areas, but no damage to the printed areas themselves. All in all, the beginning of the book is in the worst condition, steadily improving through the end. The frontis engraving does have some spotting. The frontis engraving is by Cochin, the title page vignette by K. Audran; none of the other engravings are identified by maker. The illustrations are quite lively, often dramatic (such as with Jonah and the whale), and beautifully made. The full calf binding is still present and very worn, with the pages still barely attached to the binding and to each other. Unfortunate condition, but still a lovely collection of Biblical plates.

        RECHERCHES SUR LE TISSU MUQUEUX OU L'ORGANE CELLULAIRE ET SUR QUELQUES MALADIES DE LA POITRINE - L'USAGE DES EAUX DE BAREGES ET DU MERCURE

      PARIS: CHEZ PIERRE FRANC DIDOT LE JEUNE, 1767. In 16. Dim. 17x10,5 cm. Pp. (6)+X+(2)+227+(1)+(4)+X+(8)+228. Interessante raccolta di due opere di Theophile de Bordeu (1722-1776) medico alla Royal Infirmary a Versailles e della Contessa du Barry, grande amico di Diderot. La prima è l'edizione originale di quella che è considerata una delle più importanti opere nel campo della storia cellulare. Beuret descrive tessuti connettivi sotto il nome di tessuto mucoso mostrando il loro ruolo negli scambi, nel fenomeno della nutrizione ed equilibrio meccanico degli organi e tessuti. L'opera segue le sue prime ricerche sulle malattie croniche (1775) nelle quali espose l'idea di secrezione interna con l'ipotesi che ogni organo, tessuto e cellula scarica nel sangue prodotti che influenzano altre parti del corpo. La seconda è uno studio minore, l'influenza delle acque di Bareges e del mercurio nei tumori ghiandolari. Collazionato e completo. Raro, solo tre copie censite su ICCU. In discrete condizioni. Copertina in piena pelle coeva a cinque nervi con titolo e decorazioni in oro al dorso in discrete condizioni generali con usure e parti mancanti ai margini e dorso. Legatura in discrete condizioni con qualche rottura. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture. Gora d'umidità al margine inferiore. Interesting collection of two works by Theophile de Bordeu (1722-1776) physician at Royal Infirmary in Versailles and of Contessa du Barry, great friend of Diderot. The first one is the original edition of one of the most important work in the field of cell history. Beuret describes connective tissues under the name of mucous tissue showing its role in exchanges, phenomena of nutrition and mechanical balance of organs and tissues. The work follows his earlier researches about chronical deseases (1775) in which shows the idea of internal secretion with the hypothesis that each organ, tissue and cell discharges in blood products that influence other parts of the body. The second one is a lesser study, the influence of waters of Bareges and mercury in gland cancer. Collationed and complete. Scarce, only three copy in ICCU. In fair conditions. Full leather coeval cover with five nerfs and golden title and decorations in the spine in fair general conditions with wearings and missing parts in the edges and spine. Binding in fair conditions with some cracks. Inside pages are in good conditions with foxings. Humidity stain in the lower edge.

Adolf Ludvig Stjerneld (1755-1835) var en av ledarna för oppositionen mot Gustav III i slutet av 1780-talet och försökte bl.a. vinna ryskt stöd för att inskränka kungamakten i Sverige. Kungen fick kunskap om planerna och Stjerneld arresterades tillsammans med andra oppositionsmän. Han släpptes dock ett år senare och vann ny gunst vid hovet. 1821 blev han invald i Vitterhetsakademien och ihopbragte på sin ålders höst en diger samling manuskript, böcker och porträtt på Gripsholms slott där han var ståthållare sedan 1822. Han var en nydanare av slottets porträttgalleri och utvidgade samlingen så att den inte bara innehöll kungligheter, utan även andra bemärkta svenska män och kvinnor. Hans son skänkte en stor del av de privata samlingarna till Uppsala universitetsbibliotek och Linköpings stiftsbibliotek

      G. Desprez, Paris 1767 - A worn and incomplete copy of this collection of more than five hundred copper plate engravings of scenes from the Old and New Testaments. This copy contains 454 of the 500 half-page plates plus a full page frontis, title page vignette and quarter-page engraving at the beginning of the Discours Preliminaire - it is missing 46 of the 328 plates from the Old Testament and none from the New Testament. We are selling this as a collection of plates only, as there is quite a bit of damage to the text, with many ragged edges and large chips. The plates are in generally very good condition with some (perhaps ten or twelve) having chips in the margins rather close to the printed areas, but no damage to the printed areas themselves. All in all, the beginning of the book is in the worst condition, steadily improving through the end. The frontis engraving does have some spotting. The frontis engraving is by Cochin, the title page vignette by K. Audran; none of the other engravings are identified by maker. The illustrations are quite lively, often dramatic (such as with Jonah and the whale), and beautifully made. The full calf binding is still present and very worn, with the pages still barely attached to the binding and to each other. Unfortunate condition, but still a lovely collection of Biblical plates.

The plates of the present work are all engraved by Garsault. "Five volumes of engravings were published by Garsault in June 1764, a volume of text in 1765 (Explication abrégée). The two were reissued in 1767 with the above title. Thellung states that 336 species are provided with binary names, but that 282 specific names are uninomial whereas 71 are polynominal.... Thellung, however makes a plea to accept the binary names...." (Stafleu & Cowan, listing a wrong number of plates 728!, and stating 'Only one copy seen').

The Musical Magazine eventually ran to six volumes, though complete sets are uncommon. Lewis Granom (c. 1725 - c. 1791), whose portrait appears on the title-page to volume 2, is not, of course, as well-known as other composers represented in these volumes (Handel, Arne, Jackson of Exeter, etc.), but he had a successful career as composer and flautist and song-writer.

Genervm editionis VI. et Speciervm editionis II', which is often lacking. The 12th edition is the last edition revised by Linnaeus himself and was for years, untill the beginning of the last century, the generally accepted starting point of zoological nomenclature.//Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Lavington. //Hulth 9 & 25; Soulsby 116 & 311b.
