        Le Vite de' più celebri architetti d'ogni nazione e d'ogni tempo precedute da un saggio sopra l'architettura.

      nella Stamparia di Paolo Giunchi Komarek,, in Roma, 1768 - In-4° (283210mm), pp. (2), VIII, 492, cartonatura coeva con titolo calligrafato su tassello in carta al dorso. Frontespizio figurato inciso all'acquaforte con Minerva e dei putti e varie architetture sullo sfondo. 6 tavv. incise su rame ripiegate f.t. in fine con numerose figure al loro interno. Dedicatoria del curatore Monaldini ad Emilio Altieri, Principe di Oriolo. Testatine e capilettera istoriati incisi su rame all'acquaforte. Ampio indice finale. Normali fioriture. Ottima copia in barbe. Prima edizione, pubblicata anonima per non incorrere nella censura pontificia. Dall'opera, autentico manifesto dell'estetica neoclassica, emerge l'acuto ingegno di Francesco Milizia (Oria, Otranto, 1725-Roma, 1798), che, contestatore di Michelangelo, del barocco (celebre il suo giudizio sul Borromini, bollato come "matto frenetico") e degli artisti che ne erano stati gli indiretti precursori, propose un ideale estetico conforme ai canoni della bellezza greca classica. Il Milizia fece studi disordinati e si occupò di lavori letterari e scientifici prima di dedicarsi interamente all'architettura. Molto amico del d'Azara, ambasciatore a Roma del Re di Spagna, gli dedicò la presente opera, ispirata in prevalenza alle dottrine neoclassiche del Winckelmann, del Sulzer e di Anton Rafael Mengs e fondamentale documento di quell'indirizzo estetico a dispetto dei non pochi giudizi improntati ad un estremo accademismo del gusto. Le "Vite" sono precedute da un breve saggio sull'architettura e seguite da un'appendice sul "meccanismo delle volte". "Non appena pubblicate da Venanzio Monaldini (presso la stamperia romana di Paolo Giunchi Komarek), nella primavera del 1768, le Vite de’ più celebri architetti d’ogni nazione e d’ogni tempo incorsero nella sommaria stroncatura dell’architetto e teorico Massimiliano De Vegni, che accusò il M. di averle «levate di pianta colle stesse parole [ ] fino al Brunelleschi» dal Recueil historique de la vie et des ouvrages des plus celebres architectes di Jean-François Félibien (1687). Tuttavia De Vegni non rendeva merito alle straordinarie capacità di compendiatore manifestate dall’esordiente M. non solo nei confronti dell’opera di Félibien, riguardante gli architetti dall’antichità fino al XIV secolo, ma anche delle Vite di Vasari, di Baldinucci e di altre più eterogenee come quelle di Vincenzo Scamozzi e Vincenzo Vittoria, scritte appositamente da Temanza, e quelle di Alessandro Pompei e Girolamo Dal Pozzo, le sole riguardanti personaggi viventi. Nelle Vite gli aspetti più originali riguardavano i caustici contrappunti critici nei confronti delle opere degli architetti romani degli ultimi due secoli – e in particolare di F. Borromini –, nel Saggio essi erano limitati ad alcune parti sull’educazione e sul ruolo dell’architetto in un quadro disciplinare fondato sulle scienze naturali e sulla filosofia morale. Per il resto il Saggio era il frutto di un abile florilegio dall’Essai sur l’architecture di Marc-Antoine Laugier (1753, 1765) integrato con altre fonti, a formare secondo lo stesso autore una «specie di mosaico, i di cui pezzi presi tutti di pianta di quà e di là»" (Tommaso Manfredi in D.B.I., LXXIV, 2010). Schlosser Magnino, p. 508. Cicognara, 2324: "Questa è la prima edizione pubblicata dal Monaldini senza il nome dell"Autore". Gamba, Catalogo opere di F. Milizia, p. 13. Borroni II, 10680.

        Caryophyllus XII, Caryophyllus XIII; Camilla, Feu de Japan

      Nuremberg 1768 - The “Hortus Nitidissimis Omnem Per Annum Superbiens Floribus Sive Amoenissimorum Florum Imagines” was published between 1750 and 1786 as a periodical intended, when collected, to form an unmatched collection of botanical prints. The engravings are based on the drawings collected from various artists by the famous Nuremberg physician and amateur botanist Christopher Jacob Trew. Although the plates were produced using engraving techniques common to the period, each plate was completed individually through hand coloring. The variations in plates between different known volumes indicates that more than one artist was involved in this process. These variations render every volume of the work unique. Trew’s good friend Georg Dionysius Ehret, considered the most important and influential botanical artist of the mid-18th century, was a chief artist of this endeavor. Ehret was born to farmers in Heidelberg, Germany in 1708, and showed an early propensity for drawing. As a young man he was employed primarily as a gardener and he used his time spent gardening to examine and practice drawing botanicals and the natural world around him. Eventually his art attracted the attention of Dr. Trew who gave Ehret financial patronage and with whom he worked on the Hortus Nitidissimis as well as Plantae Selectae. These botanical engravings are considered the finest records of cultivated flowers of the time and are noted as being precisely engraved and exquisitely colored. This hand colored engraving, 20.25” x 14.25”, is in excellent condition with only a small stain on the bottom right corner. The two carnations stand beautifully side by side. They are handsomely colored in crimson with highlights of white and orange, rendering them almost life-like.

      First edition, uncut in the original wrappers, of this famous work. The "<i>Lettres á une Princesse d'Allemagne</i>, 1768-72 (mainly on cosmology and physics), in which he attacked Leibniz's monadology, had an immense success and profoundly influenced contemporary philosophy" (PMM 196n). "The famous <i>Lettres...</i> which originated in lessons given by Euler to a relative of the Prussian king, was not published until Euler's return to St. Petersburg. Written in an absorbing and popular manner, the book was an unusual success and ran to twelve editions in the original French, nine in English, six in German, four in Russian, and two in both Dutch and Swedish. There were also Italian, Spanish, and Danish editions.<br/> "In physics Euler built up many artificial models and hypotheses which were short-lived. But his main concept of the unity of the forces of nature acting deterministically in some medium proved to be important for the development of physics, owing especially to <i>Lettres à une princesse d'Allemagne</i>. Thus, his views on the nature of electricity were the prototype of the theory of electric and magnetic fields of Faraday and Maxwell. His theory of ether influenced Riemann" (DSB).<br/><br/> Eneström 343, 344, 417; Honeyman 1074; Houzeau-Lancaster 8897..

Bookplate and signature on front endpapers. Like other self-educated men, Reed formed an unwarrantably high opinion of his own literary achievements. But he had a caustic wit, and wrote with much energy. Farquar is usually classed among the writers of English Restoration comedy, though he stands a little apart from them, both chronologically and in showing more variety of plot, depth of feeling, and, in his later and best plays, a more conscious effort to adapt the licentiousness of the early comedy of manners to the changing taste of the time. Cumberland turned to writing drama because he needed the money.

        Analyse des infinite Petits. Suivie d'un nouveau Commentaire pour l'intelligence des endroits les plus difficiles de cet Ouvrage. Par l'Autheur du Guide des jeunes Mathématiciens dans l'étude des Lecons de Mathematique de M. l'Abbé de la Caille.

      Avignon, Veuve Girard & Francois Seguin, 1768. 8vo. Contemp. full mottled calf. Wear to top of spine. Richly gilt spine, titlelabel with gilt lettering. (2),XXXI,380 pp. and 8 folded engraved plates. On verso of title-page a stamped exlibris. On inside frontcover an engraved exlibris "John Cookney". Internally clean, printed on good paper.. This edition of the first treatise on the differential calculus, first published 1696, is the first with the commentaries by the famous French astronomer Nicolas-Louis De Lacaille, taken from his noted "Leçons élémentaires de mathématiques"."The Analyse des infiniment petits was the first textbook of the differential calculus. The existence of several commentaries on it - one by Varignon (1725) - attests to its popularity. The question of its intellectual ownership has been much debated. Jean Bernoulli, who is known to have instructed L'Hospital in the calculus about 1691, complained after L'Hospital's death that he (Bernoulli) had not been given enough credit for his contributions. L'Hospital himself, in the introduction to his books, freely acknowledges his indebtedness to Leibniz and to the Bernoulli brothers. On the other hand, he states that he regards the foundations provided by him as his own idea, although they also have been credited by some to Jean Bernoulli. However, these foundations can be found, less explicitly, also in Leibniz, although Leibniz made it clear that he did not accept L'Hospital's Platonistic views on the reality of infinitely small and infinitely large quantities."(DSB)

      London, J. Millan, 1768. 4to (290 x 235mm). pp. (2), 13, (1), 10, with 85 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with 6 raised bands, gilt lettered label and floral ornaments. Jacob Johann Dillenius (1684-1747) was a British botanist of German birth, Sherardian professor of botany at Oxford. Third edition, the first was published in 1741. "...in 1741 he published his most important book, 'Historia muscorum', in which he introduced a new classification of the lower plants (some features of which system are still in use this day). In his desire to be definitive Dillenius put a prodigious amount of work into this book, which meets the high standards demanded by more modern taxonomy" (DSB)./"Les descriptions de Dillenius sont brèves mais l'illustration est bien plus précise que dans presque tous les ouvrages antérieurs, et de nombreux détails sont parfaitement identifiables (feuilles, opercules, coiffes, etc...). Les planches montrent avec fidélité de nombreuses espèces de muscinées, ce qui permettait, enfin, de les identifier. D'où les nombreuses éditions de cet ouvrage recherché déjà au moment de sa parution"(De Sloover & Bogaert-Damin, 'Les Muscinéed du xvie au xixe siecle' p. 99)//Stafleu & Cowan 1472.
