        Histoire naturelle, generale et particuliere Nouvelle Edition 14 volume set

Profusely illustrated with 202 engraved plates, 2 folding maps, folding chart. Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon, was a noted scientist whose monumental works in natural sciences influenced the next two generations of naturalists, including Jean-Baptiste Lamarck and Georges Cuvier. (Mayr, The Growth of Biological Thought. p 330) Buffon's work was based on the methods of observation and experimentation. He raised many of the fundamental problems of biology in a scientific context. One of Buffon's most important contributions was the popularization of the old earth theory, in opposition to Archbishop Ussher's biblical earth time-line. Buffon was an important pre-cursor to Darwin. Cited as the father of biogeography, Buffon's Law postulated that creatures "improved" and "degenerated" after dispersing from a center of creation. He based his theory on comparative anatomy studies. Buffon tried to explain the origin of living things by spontaneous generation of elementary particles and its development as a consequence of climate and diet. Buffon argued that all members of a family of species descended from the same ancestors, a "unity of type". Contents:T. 1. Premier discours. Second discours.

        DE LA TOLERANCE DANS LA RELIGION OU DE LA LIBERTE DE CONSCIENCE - L'INTOLERANCE CONVAINCUE DE CRIME ET DE FOLIE.

      Londres 1769 - Londres, s.n., 1769. Edition originale. 1 vol. In-12, 4ff-174pp, relié plein veau, dos lisse orné de caissons et fleurons dorés, pièce de titre, plat avec triple filet d'encadrement, pages de garde de papier marbré ; toutes tranches marbrées. Deux rares traités sur l'intolérance religieuse. Le premier, de Crellius (Jan Crell), fut publié à l'origine en 1637 sous le titre "Junii Bruti, Poloni, Vindiciae pro religionis libertate". Traduit du Latin par Charles Le Cène, il figura dans la seconde partie de son traité "Conversations sur diverses matières de Religion". Cette traduction de Le Cène est ici adaptée par Jacques André Naigeon, athée convaincu et ami d'Holbach et de Diderot. Le second traité "De l?Intolérance dans la religion" (pp. 88 à 174) est la traduction par le baron P.H.D. d'Holbach (ici en édition originale) d'un essai anglais de Thomas Gordon et John Trenchard édité dans l?Independent Whig, revue qui parut de 1720 à 1723. Reliure avec de légères traces de frottement, notamment aux coiffes et mors. Coins un peu émoussés. Intérieur assez frais, un petit nombre de cahiers aux pages un peu brunies, mais dans leur majorité, les pages sont propres. Un bon exemplaire de cette rare édition originale de la traduction d'Holbach. */* London, 1769. First edition in French. 12mo, 4ff-174pp, bound in contemporary mottled calf, flat spine with gilt in compartments, black title label lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. Two scarce treatises on religious intolerance. The first is a translation of the Latin treatise, "Vindiciae pro religionis libertate", by the Socinian writer Johann Crell, first published in 1637. This French translation, by Charles Le Cène, had originally appeared as the second part of his "Conversations sur diverses matières de Religion", published in Amsterdam under a false Philadelphia imprint in 1687, and is here edited by Jacques-André Naigeon, the radical atheist and friend of Holbach and Diderot, who was responsible for the clandestine printing of several of Holbach?s works in Amsterdam. The second treatise, "De l?Intolérance dans la religion" (pp. 88 to 174), is a translation by Holbach of an English essay by Thomas Gordon & John Trenchard that was first published in The Independent Whig, a periodical published by them between 1720 and 1723. Binding slightly rubbed at edges & corners, some pages with light browning, but overall clean.

Captain Wallis, also in the Dolphin, discovered the volcanic island of Tahiti, which he named King George III Island, and Moorea . . . Captain Carteret, in command of the Swallow, became separated from Captain Wallis and was feared lost. He discovered Pitcairn Island and some remote atolls in the South Seas. The first voyage under the not-yet-famous Captain Cook's command, on the Endeavour, was primarily of scientific nature . . . Entering the Pacific around Cape Horn, Cook reached Tahiti in 1769 and carried out the necessary astronomical observations. Excellent relations with the Tahitians were maintained, and Sir Joseph Banks . . . and Daniel C. Solander carried out extensive ethnological and botanical research. Leaving Tahiti in July, Cook discovered, named, and charted the Society Islands, and . . . explored New Zealand . . . Cook then headed towards Australia and discovered and charted the eastern coast . . ., naming the area New South Wales. Cook's discoveries won him prominence, promotion, and the opportunity to sail again. They also ensured John Hawkesworth's position in maritime literary history, as the official chronicler of Cook's first voyage'' (Hill).With some water stains at the head of 1 quire (O) and the top edge of the map dirty, but otherwise in fine condition and wholly untrimmed.

        The manuscript diaries of four members of the prominent Bavarian family Chlingensberg: Joseph Maria Bernhard von Chlingensberg (1749-1811), his son Joseph von Chlingensberg auf Berg (1777-1830), the younger Joseph's wife Karoline von Chlingensberg, née Baroness von Asch (1789-1826), and their son Joseph von Chlingensberg (1808-37). These diaries, present here in 49 volumes and covering a 62-year period (1769-1830), provide an intimate account of the lives of a socially prominent family, the men's professional lives as important lawyers, daily matters, and, above all, the rather shocking sexual life of Joseph von Chlingensberg auf Berg. These diaries have received no scholarly attention and remain unpublished. Our description below suggests the rich possibilities which exist in these diaries

      I. CHLINGENSBERG, Joseph Maria Bernhard von. Diary entries and notes regarding business and household matters covering the years 1769-1778. Manuscript in ink on paper, written in German, Latin, and French. The diary entries have been written in an annual series of printed Schreib-Kalender auf ein besondere Form und Weis…zum täglichen Nutzen also eingericht (Munich: F.J. Thuille, [1768-77]). Ten vols. Small 4to (204 x 165 mm.), various cont. bindings of gilt brocade paper in varying designs over boards, gilt leather labels with each respective year on upper covers. Mainly Munich: 1769-78. Following the time-honored family tradition, Joseph Maria Bernhard von Chlingensberg (1749-1811), lord of Schönhofen near Regensburg and of Berg near Landshut, entered the legal profession, and was employed by the Bavarian Elector in Munich as privy councilor and in various other advisory capacities. He was married twice, to Marianne von Markreither (1757-92) and to Antonie von Haugwith (1770-1838). The year 1769 sees Chlingensberg's first entry in the Schreib-Kalender. In a fluent hand, he notes: "1769 is the first year in which I shall write something in this calendar, which I shall continue to do for the rest of my life." The front pastedown of the volume is signed "v. Chlingensberg, JMia." A few of the (not always daily) entries are written carefully, but most are written in a rather casual fashion. At first, Chlingensberg concentrates on earnings and expenditures. On 1 January 1769, he writes: "My uncle gave me 12 guilders for a wig." Sums paid for chocolate, coffee and sugar are noted, as well as for books and bookbinders: "I drew up a contract with Crätz the bookdealer, promising to buy all my books from him and to pay him every six months." He gives his mother money and presents his sister Nandl (Anna) with "a few guilders for the fair." At the end of the each month, he notes monies spent on the hairdresser (a regular expenditure), on the lamplighter, and "tips" (January 1777). Soon, Chlingensberg's fondness for gambling becomes apparent. He records gains and losses, mostly in French ("gagné au jeu" and "perdu au jeu"), ever increasing in frequency and sums as the years pass. On 1 February 1778 an entire page is dedicated to gambling profits and debts. His principal vice is "le jeu" next to "lotterie" and "billiard." Entries concerning his private activities are relatively scarce. On 5 June 1770, he notes that he rode his horse to Nymphenburg palace, Munich; on 5 July of that year we learn "She made it quite clear that she would be a friend to me, but nothing more; all the same I cannot hate her." On 24 August, Chlingensberg "rode to Nymphenburg and spent half an hour there." A few birthdays and other anniversaries are mentioned. As of 1775, expenditures are recorded. On 3 October, for instance, he "gave my wife 136 guilders for household expenses." On 3 December 1775, his daughter Mariana Josepha Xaveria Barbara is born; on 26 May 1777, he notes (in Latin) the birth of an unnamed son. Chlingensberg visits the theater, goes to dances, and mentions other festivities, such as "a serenade in front of the Fuggers' house to celebrate Miss …'s marriage to Baron Sandizell" (14 June 1772). The majority of Chlingensberg's entries, however, concern his legal work. Written mostly in fluent Latin, they show him to be a conscientious and hard-working lawyer who is very rarely "Not a member of the council." At the end of each month, he states the number of motions he has brought forward to the council. Chlingensberg is in the courtroom on an almost daily basis, recording in a matter-of-fact way the names of the opponents and of the court clerk, without giving any further details of the respective case. Written in haste, the word "contra" is often reduced to a mere colon. Chlingensberg's courtroom battles include a dispute between two Jewish businessmen, Elias Oppenheimer and Samuel Perchheimer (27 May 1771); a disagreement involving the Cistercian monastery of Seligenthal and the Landshut borough of Berg (29 January 1774); and a variance between one Levi Jud and Count Preysing (24 August 1775). Further courtroom controversies regarding inheritances, property, and other legal matters are recorded involving the local gentry, such as Count La Rosée and the Barons Eyb, Lerchenfeld, Aretin, Stauffenberg, and Pauli, as well as patricians, commoners, peasants etc. of both sexes; Bellet, Bosshardt, Freisinger, Fugger, Grindl, Gruber, Victoria Huber, Rachel Jud (24 March 1777), Lochner, Strobl, and Thalmayr are among the names mentioned. The gilt-brocade papers on the covers of the bindings are by Johann Carl Munck of Augsburg (1772), A[ndreas] S[treller] of Nördlingen (1777), and others. While these diaries were subjected to daily use and taken along on trips, they exhibit only minor wear. Completed leaves have been diagonally trimmed at each upper corner. These diaries provide a record of a decade in the life of a hardworking and sober-minded lawyer, with only a few bad habits, in the second half of the 18th century. The next group of diaries, those of his son, provide a rather different story as we shall see. II. CHLINGENSBERG AUF BERG, Joseph von. The manuscript diary entries and notes regarding business and household matters and his hyper-active sex-life, covering the years 1801-1830 (lacking the 1804 volume). Manuscript in ink on paper, written mostly in German with Latin technical terms and fashionable French expressions. The diary entries have been written in an annual series of printed Schreib-Kalender (authored by Albert Bauer as of 1802, lacking the 1804 volume, 1803 is a different calendar), published by Hübschmann at Munich, 1800, 1801 and 1804-29. 29 vols. Small 4to, various cont. bindings including blue boards, decorated boards in various designs, one in gilt brocade, gilt labels with respective years on upper cover (16 vols.) or stamped on upper cover, 13 with all edges gilt. Munich, Berg near Landshut et al., 1801-30. Again, following the family tradition, Joseph von Chlingensberg auf Berg (26 May 1777-24 May 1830), entered the legal profession and became courtroom councillor in the employ of the King of Bavaria. On 13 August 1806, he married Karoline von Asch (10 December 1789-14 June, 1826). The diaries offered here record the life of a country gentleman and extremely busy lawyer, conscientious and hardworking, who is, at the same time, consumed by his passion for women and sexual adventures. Chlingensberg's handwriting is sometimes generously large and easily legible, at other times a hasty scribble. Many pages are filled right up to the edge with multiple entries for the same day. The blank leaves inserted between the printed calendar pages, too, are often covered over and over with minuscule writing. The diary entries, covering a period of thirty years (in 1801 Chlingensberg is 24, he dies in 1830 just two days short of his 53rd birthday), reflect his increasing age and his varying states of mind and bodily health. There are many entries in large attractive script on the blank leaves inserted between the printed calendar leaves recording birthdays and fêtes of family members, friends, and acquaintances. Thus, every year on August 4th, he notes the "Birthday of my dear Pepi"; on October 14th he records the "Birthday of my dear, never-to-be-forgotten Therese." There are anniversaries of weddings (15 April 1829: "It was 18 years ago today that Sicherer got married") and of deaths (10 February, starting in 1819: "Death of my late, never-to-be-forgotten Therese"). In the volume for 1830 (the year of Chlingensberg's death), the dates of the fairs and church dedication days (which usually went hand in hand with further country fairs) are noted right up to December. Chlingensberg died in May, so it seems he always made a point of entering these dates as soon as he received the printed calendar volume for the next year. Added to these key dates there are numerous notes on the interleaved blank leaves that show Chlingensberg to be a conscientious lord of the manor with a watchful eye on his household and his assets. He records expenditures and receipts, loans and gifts (sums given to his mother, his sister, his wife etc.); he buys and sells oats, hay, wood, tobacco; has his horses Lisel and (as of 1824) Hans, the Gray, and the Brown shod regularly; and much more. Chlingensberg's days are regularly filled with work in the mornings; he also travels extensively. Year after year, he notes, almost daily: "Worked until 11 in the morning" or "Worked like a dog until 1 in the afternoon" or "Worked like a dog per totem diem in very bad weather" (10 April 1825), etc. The company Chlingensberg keeps on a professional level is mainly aristocratic; his acquaintances include chancellor Courtin, president of the Royal College Dalwitz, Godin, Fraunberg, Hochstetter, Hornstein, Gumppenberg, La Rosé, Lassberg, Lerchenfeld, Löwenthal, Montgelas, Seinsheim, and Sicherer, but in a courtoom context, mention is also made of numerous patricians, commoners, and peasants. In private, however, Chlingensberg feels at home in every stratus of society. The Life of a Libertine But here is where his diaries become really fascinating and the fun begins. At the end of almost every day, all notes regarding Chlingensberg's work are supplemented with remarks like "afterwards, went to dinner" or entries beginning "and in the afternoon" or "and in the evening." These days are filled to the brim (or rather, to the edges of the page) with a great deal of meticulously recorded private matter far beyond Chlingensberg's regular attendance at church on Sundays. Each of his spare-time activities, be it a visit to the theater, to a cabaret or museum, a horseback ride, a trip, a dance, a supper invitation, a game of billiards, or a stroll in the park, seems to culminate in an erotic escapade of varying degrees of intensity. Chlingensberg was obsessed with women - "whore", "das Mensch" (Bavarian dialect for "young woman"), "slut," landlord's daughter, servant girl, maid, serving wench, or cook, noblewomen, patricians' daughters and wives - he has to "have" all of them. Chlingensberg has painstakingly recorded all his sexual escapades in great detail throughout these diaries. At first, he writes in German, but as of 1805 (some of that year's entries have been cut or torn out), he employs a cipher. Chlingensberg's son, shortly after the death of his father, successfully "cracked" his father's cipher and a 20th-century owner "cracked" it again, describing it as "Shorthand, 16th century, England by way of France, also in Germany since the late 18th century" (two slips laid in explaining deciphering of code). Beginning in 1805, Chlingensberg often records an instance of intercourse by means of a symbol denoting the female sexual organ (an oval with one or more dashes through the middle, each dash denoting an orgasm; there are, for example, six dashes on his wedding anniversary). The above-mentioned previous owner, having decoded Chlingensberg's cipher, has provided a translation of several passages, written in pencil and ink on several slips of paper - but only for the 1806-1810 volumes of the calendar. Thus, from 1811 on, the enormous number of "secret" passages still await their decoding. The translations extant let Chlingensberg appear as a raving sexist using very plainly obscene language on the one hand, and as a sensitive lover on the other, a man who loses his head, sheds bitter tears, and writes passionate love-letters - all of this simultaneously. Chlingensberg never uses force to achieve his aims, instead relying on gentle but stubbornly insistent cajoling, "surprise attacks," or pure adoration. He occasionally notes if the woman has actually "come" or if she has only feigned a climax. He often uses a "kontom" to avoid venereal disease and unwanted pregnancies. It is indeed hard to believe that all the mothers who forbade their daughters to associate with Chlingensberg, all the fathers who would as soon have locked their daughters away, all the cuckolded husbands who were away at work or out of town, were unable to do anything about these goings-on. Chlingensberg's entire social circle seems to have happily played along. For a number of years, he had a crony named Grandauer who often arranged meetings in which he sometimes participated to make a threesome. Here are a few quotes from the less bawdy parts of the deciphered passages (and I do want to emphasize these are the milder passages amongst hundred and hundreds of other sexual encounters): -1 February 1806: "Gietl's maid promised she would come, but didn't. So, feeling particularly horny, I walked the streets around seven o'clock, found Red Nani, took her home and f****d her" (Nani is short for Anna or Marianne). From 10-15 August 1807, he consorted with "the Löwenthal woman," Nani Sedlmayer, Nani Huber, "the Aschenbrenner woman" and "Nani Hurtig," which led to "no end of trouble" with his wife (as it often did), "so that I almost slapped her in the face and grabbed her by the neck." On 7 September 1807, "I had time to leisurely take my leave amid 100 kisses from the woman who is so eternally and unforgettably dear to my heart, and who alone could be my happiness on earth." On 27 August 1807, Chlingensberg "at 9 in the evening met the daughter of the late secretary Streicher, f****d her under the open sky and then f****d my wife.".

        Neues systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet.

      Nürnberg, G.N. Raspe, 1769-1788. 10 volumes and 1 index volume. 4to (300 x 230mm). With 1 handcoloured engraved frontispiece, 1 portrait and 367 fine handcoloured engraved plates, numerous engravings in the text of which some handcoloured. Contemporary calf, richly gilt spines with red and green gilt lettered labels (some minor skilful repairs, index volume half calf). The most beautifully produced German iconography on shells, portraying marine shells from all over the world including shells from Cook's voyage into the Pacific. /The work describes and portrays many shells from New Zealand, some from Australia and some from Tahiti, mostly collected during Cook's voyages. In the preface of the 5th volume Chemnitz states: "... viele dem Kenner wichtiger Conchyliologische Nachrichten aufgetrieben, auf jeder Kupferplatte einige ganz neue, äusserst seltene, auch vorzügliche Südländische, bey den Cookischen Seereisen, zuerst entdeckte Gattungen geliefert"./Below we give the volumes and pages where these shells are described (as well as portrayed). Vol. IV: p. 220; Vol. V: pp. 26, 27, 28, 36, 42, 47, 97, 100, 163, 166, 187, 207, 213, 215, 229, 230, 272, 285, 296, 321; Vol. VI: p. 30; Vol. VII: p. 61; Vol. VIII, 167, 195; Vol. IX, 1: p. 108; Vol. IX, 2: pp. 42, 44, 49; Vol. X: pp. 183, 187, 188, 202; 210, 238; 258, 281; 287, 288, 289, 291, 295, 296, 311, 313, 314, 315, 317, 321, 355./For example page 36 of volume V describes 'Der Cookskräusel von Cooks Meeresenge bey Neu-Seeland'; page 166 describes 'Das Bretspiel... diese Schnecken sind nach meinem Verzeichniss von Diemensland', page 207 describes 'Die rötliche geperlte Neuseeländische Mondschnecke'; Volume IX, 1 p. 108 describes 'Die linke Otaheitische Flussschnecke... die mir von den Cookischen Seereisen zugefallen'; Vol. X describes 'Der Wasserfall... auch diese Gattung haben wir den Cookischen Seereisen zu verdanken. Sie ist gleichfalls bey Neuseeland, bey diesem Wohnorte der herrlichen Conchylien gefunden worden', page 201 describes ‚'Der Otaheitische Thurm... die erst bey den letzten Cookischen Reisen um die Welt, bey Otaheite entdecket worden', page 314 describes 'Das Venusohr... das kleine gestreifte Ohr von Neu-Seeland', page 355 describes 'Die Südseeische Venus, Venus Australis... diese vortefliche Venusmuschel hat der berühmte Banks dem Herrn Spengler verehret'. Many of the shells come from the cabinet of Lorenz Spengel of Copenhagen (ex Museo Spengleriano). His cabinet contained many Cook related items and Spengel was a regular customer of Humprey, 'who wrote to Spengler on 15 October, 1775, apologizing for the delay in sending him shells and explaining that he needed to be on hand to take care of transactions on the return of the 'Resolution" (Andrews, The Southern Ark p. 48).//"Friederich Wilhelm Martini, a Hamburg physician, conceived the idea of publishing the first large-scale encyclopaedia of shells illustrated with hand-coloured plates. His ambition was to describe and portray every kind of shell known, an ambition virtually impossible to fulfil, as others have discovered since. No sooner was the third volume of the 'Neues Systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet' in print that its author died, in 1778. Publication was continued by Johann Hieronymus Chemnitz, a Danish clergyman who, between 1779 and 1795, added a further eight volumes" (Dance, Shells p. 24).//The portrayed shells come from famous 'wunderkammer' collections of Kings and nobility, as well as wealthy merchants, such as the museum of Lorenz Spengler, cabinet maker of the King of Denmark; the museum of the King of Denmark, King Frederic V, an avid shell collector; the museum of Count A.G. Molke, who had one of the finest shell collections in Europe, many from the famous Seba collection; the museum of J.F. Bolten, who had worked out a new system of conchology; the museum of J.S. Schröter; the museum of Madame de Blandeville; the museum of Abraham Gevers, burgomaster of Rotterdam, who had one of the finest collections in the Netherlands; the museum of Empress of Austria, Maria Thesesia, who had a large shell collection in Vienna, which was decribed in a sumptuous folio by Baron Ignatius von Born; as well as the very extensive collections of Martini, in the first 3 volumes, and of Chemnitz in the other volumes. A very fine copy.//10 volumes were planned and the title of volume 10 reads 'zehnter and letzter Band'. A separate index was published by Samuel Schöter a 'Vollständiges alphabetisches Namen-Register über alle zehn Bände'. However in 1795 a supplementary volume was published, which is lacking in most sets and not present here. Very few sets have this volume. A 12th volume was published 34 years after publication of volume 11. It was published by G.H. Schubert & J.A. Wagner in 1829 and is one of the great rarities in conchological literature. //The excellent plates are by A.F. Happe, Krüger, J.S. Leitner, Nüssbiegel, Scheidl, F. Ant, J.P. Degen and others, and were engraved by V. Bischoff, J.C. Bock, C.B. Glassbach, L.S. Leutner, J. Nussbiegel and V. Vogel. //Nissen ZBI, 2722; B.M. (Nat. Hist.) III, 1252.

        Lettre autographe signée (1833) à Louis-Philippe Ier

      - SOULT Nicolas Jean-de-Dieu (1769-1852). Maréchal d’Empire. Lettre autographe signée, 5 août 1833, à Louis-Philippe Ier, 1 page ½ in-4, déchirure en haut de page n’affectant pas le texte et petite réparation au scotch sur la deuxième page. Portrait gravé joint. Soult demande au Roi l’ajournement d’un rendez-vous devant avoir lieu aux Tuileries. « Sire, Lorsque M. Sebastiani, de Rigui et Thiers se sont présentés chez moi, on leur eu effet répondre que j’étais sorti, suivant l’ordre qu’auparavant j’avais donné à ma porte que je ne recevais personne, et pourtant j’étais à me reposer et à préparer des éléments d’une nouvelle discussion qu’il m’a paru que votre majesté désirait ; à cinq heures cependant je suis sorti avec ma femme pour aller prendre l’air au bois de Boulogne. La maréchale m’accompagnait, j’étouffais et je souffrais extrêmement. Ce n’est qu’en rentrant à 6 heures ¼ que j’ai reçu la ( ?) lettre de ce jour dont votre majesté m’a honoré ou elle m’ordonne de me rendre pour elle aux Thuileries avant huit heures. J’obéirai, Sire, quoique je ne me sente pas en état de soutenir la discussion qui me paraît inévitable et que je désirai pouvoir différer jusqu’à demain en présence du Conseil. Une situation physique me faisait désirer ce ménagement, et je crains qu’elle ne s’aggrave ne l’ayant pu l’obtenir. J’ai l’honneur d’être avec respect de votre majesté le très humble et fidèle sujet. Maréchal Duc de Dalmatie ». Après la révolution de juillet 1830, Soult s’était rallié à Louis-Philippe qui l’avait nommé ministre de la Guerre en novembre.

        Rovine della Villa d'Orazio

      1769 - L'imbarazzo nel descrivere il soggetto è pari a ll'estro ed alla follia artistica ed intellettuale del Piranesi, sintetizzato in questa "vignetta" dalla forma curiosa ma inequivocabile! Rarissima opera a sfondo satirico e polemico,inserita a pagina 35 della sola prima edizione di "Diverse Maniere d'adornare i Cammini ed ogni altra parta degli edifizi", edita a Roma dal Piranesi nel 1769. Esattamente l'opera è collocata alla fine dell'Apologia in difesa dell'architettura degli Egiziani e Toscani, realizzata in aperta polemica con Bertrand Capmartin de Chapuy, autore di un testo archeologico sulla villa di Orazio dal titolo "Decouverte de la maison de campagne d'Horace" stampato tra il 1767 ed il 1769. Continuanado l'aperta polemica con la cosidetta "archeologia dotta", il Piranesi nella sua Apologia che precede questa incisione, continua e rafforza il discorso già intraprese con le "Antichità Romane". I tre volumi raffigurati danno vita ad in effetto trompe oeil; il nome del Capmartin de Chapuy è riportato su uno dei tre tomi, con altri che invece riportano frasi pungenti indirizzate allo stesso ("Non merita risposta", "Capo confuso"). Il tutto viene arricchito dalla frase "Una fonte secca e pochi muri hanno prodotto tre grossi tomi". In basso, l'autore si prende cura di consigliare l'editore con l'iscrizione "Via avverto a prender consiglio prima di stampare". Acquaforte e bulino, 1769. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB" (Robison 37), con pieni margini, lieve gora d'acqua nella parte inferiore destra del margine bianco, in eccellente stato di conservazione. The embarrassment in describing the subject is equal to all the Piranesi's artistic and intellectual inspiratrion, summarized by this "vignette" with a curious but unmistakable shape! Very rare work, with a satirical and polemical insiration, inserted on page 35 of the only first edition of "Diverse Maniere d'adornare i Cammini ed ogni altra parta degli edifizi, published in 1769 in Rome. Exactly the work is located at the end of the Apologia in difesa dell'architettura degli Egiziani e Toscani, made in open dispute with Bertrand de Capmartin Chapuy, author of a text on archaeological villa of Horace entitled "Decouverte de la maison de campagne d 'Horace" and printed between 1767 and 1769. Continuing the open dispute with the so-called "scholarly archeology", Piranesi in his Apologia which comes before this print, keeps on and intensifies the thesis which he initiated with the "Antichità Romane". The three depicted volumes give rise to a trompe l'oeil effect; the name of Capmartin de Chapuy is shown on one of the three volumes, with a few monking sentences directd towards him as :"Non merita risposta" & "Capo confuso" ("He does not deserve response" & "Cape confused"). These are enriched by the iscription "Una fonte secca e pochi muri hanno prodotto tre grossi tomi" ("A source dry and few walls have produced three thick volumes"). Below, the author takes care to advise the publisher with the inscription: "Via avverto a prender consiglio prima di stampare" ("I advise you to think about it carefully before printing"). Etching and engraving, 1769. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "double circle and lily with letters CB" (Robison 37), with full margins, slight water stain at the bottom right of the white margin, in excellent condition. Focillon 856, Witon-Ely 817 Dimensioni 218 160mm [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
