        Collection of Russian and Siberian Cities].

      Imp. Akad. Nauk Skt. Peterburg -1771 1769 - Folio (56.2 x 44 cm). 34 engraved views by many engravers after various artists, including 12 of the cities in European Russia and 22 of Siberia, on 22 leaves, with captions in Russian and French, printed on Dutch handmade paper watermarked C & I Honig IV, one engraving signed in the plate by N.Ya. Sablin; the first view (Zilantov monastery) cut and pasted at the time of binding on paper watermarked "Whatman 1818", views of Kokshaysk and Astrakhan conjoined. Early 19th-century half calf over marbled boards, gilt rules, spine with raised bands, gilt lettering in second compartments, gilt decorative elements in others; joints restored. Exceptionally rare complete collection of the earliest views of Russian cities on the Volga river and in Siberia, engraved by Russian masters. An excellent example. These views are part of a series that includes a total of 34 prints. The process of their publication spanned almost forty years (from the creation of the first drawings until the prints were issued) and involved seven artists and twelve Russian engravers. The cities were drawn on the spot between 1733 and 1766 during two great expeditions; the originals were later corrected and re-worked between 1748 and 1768, before being printed at the Academy between 1769 and 1771. The views offered here of Mangazey and other Siberian cities are based on drawings made during the Great Northern Expedition (1733–1743), ordered by Empress Anna Ioanovna. Under the leadership of Vitus Bering the expedition was charged with mapping the eastern reaches of Siberia and, if possible, continuing on to the western shores of North America in order to explore and map them as well. The twenty eight views of towns encountered on the way, including Novgorod, Tver, Kazan, Tobolsk and Yakutsk, were drawn by the expedition artists J.C. Berckhan and J.W. Lursenius. Delays in passing the drawings to the Engraving Chamber and disruptions in the engraving process meant the plates were not finished until 1771. The twelve views of cities in the European part of Russia, including Kokshaysk, Sinbirsk, Kuznetsk and Penza, are based on original drawings by Alexander Ivanovich Svechin (end of 1720s – 1796). Svechin, a colonel and artist, headed an expedition to the Volga region in 1765, commissioned by Catherine the Great in order to investigate whether Kazan's oak forests would provide a decent timber supply for the construction of Russia's naval fleet. With the help of a camera obscura, Svechin produced twenty-eight drawings during this trip, including fourteen views of cities on the Volga river that Makhaev then had to review on Catherine's orders. The result was twelve amended versions of the cities, in which the artist corrected inaccuracies of perspective and unified the composition. In December 1768 the drawings were finally sent to the Engraving Chamber of the Academy of Sciences. The engraved plates were sold individually and are exceptionally rare. We were able to trace only two copies comprising all 34 views, both in Russia – in the collections of the State Hermitage Museum and the State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg. Outside Russia the collection of these views was found only in the Eton library, where the copy, in a modern binding, is lacking one plate. Complete examples are of exceptional rarity, as the engraved plates were sold individually. Absent from all usual Russian bibliographies and great collections.

        Pessach-Haggadah

       Die Pessach-Haggadah, hebräisch: „Oster-Erzählung“, stellt die Liturgie der häuslichen jüdischen Osterfeier dar. Zusammen mit der Bibel und dem Mahzor gehört sie zu den bedeutendsten jüdischen Handschriften, die illustriert wurden (die Thora wurde nie bebildert). Im 18. Jh. erlebte die Pessach-Haggadah eine regelrechte Renaissance als künstlerisches Objekt, wobei sich als eines der wesentlichsten Schaffenszentren Dänemark herausbildete. Daß auch noch in der Neuzeit, als der Buchdruck schon längst erfunden worden war, Bücher von Hand geschrieben und kunstvoll ausgemalt wurden – darunter vor allem jüdische Texte für den liturgischen Gebrauch –, ist kaum bekannt, wird aber durch diese Handschrift eindrucksvoll dokumentiert. Der Darmstädter Codex entstand 1769 in Kopenhagen und wurde von Yehuda Leib ben Eliyya Ha-Cohen geschrieben sowie künstlerisch ausgestattet. Die Illustrationen beziehen sich direkt auf den Text, wobei rituelle, biblische und eschatologische Aspekte der Liturgie anschaulich dargestellt werden. Die Miniaturen Yehuda Leib Ha-Cohens sind kleine Gemälde. Stimmungsvoll werden die Themen der Pessach-Haggadah interpretiert, mit einer Liebe zum Detail und einer Feinheit der Ausführung, wodurch auch ein Einblick in das zeitgenössische Leben gewährt wird.Eine dänische Haggadah Jüdische Gemeinden entstanden in Dänemark während des 17. Jh.s, als König Christian IV. vor allem aus wirtschaftspolitischen Erwägungen heraus Juden ermutigte, sich anzusiedeln. Kopenhagen war eine der größeren Gemeinden, die etwa hunderttausend Mitglieder zählte. Diese Gemeinde bot mit ihrer kosmopolitischen Atmosphäre ein breites Spektrum an kulturellen und wirtschaftlichen Möglichkeiten. Die jüdische Bevölkerung in Dänemark lebte weitgehend in Frieden, der mit dem durch den wirtschaftlichen Aufschwung bedingten Wohlstand eine Grundlage für zahlreiche künstlerische Aufträge schuf. Die Pessach-Haggadah wurde im 18. Jh. schließlich zum bevorzugten Gegenstand der künstlerischen Ausstattung durch jüdische Schreiber und Maler.Ein liturgisches Buch für das Pessach-Fest Die Pessach-Haggadah schildert die Befreiung der Israeliten aus der ägyptischen Knechtschaft und den Auszug aus Ägypten in das verheißene Land. Der Grundgedanke ist, diese Botschaft der Befreiung von Generation zu Generation weiterzutragen, denn „in allen Zeitaltern ist jeder verpflichtet, sich zu betrachten, als ob er gleichsam selbst aus Ägypten gegangen wäre“. In einem messianischen Ausblick wird auf die endgültige Befreiung hingewiesen. Das Pessach-Fest beginnt am 14. Nisan, d. h. am ersten Vollmond des Frühlings, und dauert acht Tage. Bei diesem Fest wird am Abend ein Lamm mit ungesäuerten Broten (Mazzot), bitteren Kräutern und Wein im Familienkreis zu Hause verzehrt. Allmählich bildete sich eine feste Ordnung (Seder) heraus, nach der die Liturgie ablief. Seit ungefähr tausend Jahren liegt diese Ordnung in ihrer Grundform vor. Sie wurde später in einem kleinen Buch zusammengefaßt, das Pessach-Haggadah genannt wird. Dieses Buch enthält biblische Texte, Hymnen und Psalmen, Verse und Aufzeichnungen religiöser Bräuche. Es wird am ersten und zweiten Pessach-Abend vom Hausherrn vorgelesen. Da dies während der Handlungen und des Essens geschieht, finden sich in den meisten Handschriften entsprechende Gebrauchsspuren, wie z. B. Weinflecken.Yehuda Leib ben Eliyya Ha-Cohen Der Schreiber und Maler Yehuda Leib Ha-Cohen stammte aus Lissa in Polen. Von ihm sind zwei Haggadot bekannt, die er in Dänemark geschaffen hat, der Darmstädter Codex aus dem Jahre 1769 und ein weiterer aus dem Jahre 1779. Jüdische Buchmaler haben in der Regel sehr traditionalistisch gearbeitet. Im Gegensatz zu seinen Kollegen setzte sich Yehuda Leib intensiv mit dem europäischen Kunstschaffen, insbesondere mit der dänischen Tradition auseinander und gewann einen neuen Malstil, der eine Brücke von Barock und Rokoko zum Klassizismus schuf. Er holte sich deutliche Anregungen bei anderen Künstlern, wie z. B. von den Icones Biblicae des Matthäus Merian und den Amsterdamer Haggadot. Auch die Radierungen des Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki beeinflußten ihn. Leibs Landschaften erinnern an Bilder der französischen Klassik, seine Architekturen an Barockbauten Kopenhagens, seine häuslichen Szenen sind Genrebilder des Rokoko. Mit nuancierten Abstufungen von Licht- und Schattenwirkung zaubert er Atmosphäre in die Bilder. Trotz der Orientierung an Vorbildern entwickelte er einen eigenen, innovativen Stil, der sich von dem anderer Künstler sehr unterscheidet und seine Bilder einzigartig macht.Der Kommentarband Der wissenschaftliche Kommentar, der von Ulf Haxen in englischer Sprache verfaßt wurde, führt zunächst in das historische Umfeld der Handschrift ein. Darauf wird der Verfasser und Maler der Handschrift in seiner kunsthistorischen Bedeutung dargestellt, und schließlich werden die einzelnen Seiten des Codex beschrieben und kommentiert. 2 Bände, Faksimile + Kommentar im Schuber.

        Constitutio criminalis Theresiana oder der Römisch-Kaiserl. . Majestät Maria Theresiä Erzherzogin zu Oesterreich etc. peinliche Gerichtsordnung.

      - Wien, J. Th. Trattner, 1769. Folio. 8 Bl., 282, LVI S. u. Bl.; 10; 20 S. (Geheime Anmerkungen; Instruction). Mit 27 ganzseitigen Textkupfern u. 3 gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Moderner Leder mit linearer Blindprägung u. blindgeprägtem Rückentitel (Rücken etwas verblaßt). Breitrandiges Exemplar der berüchtigten Theresiana, der letzten in Österreich erschienenen Strafrechtsverordnung, die noch die Anwendung grausamer Foltern verzeichnete. Maria Theresia hatte ihren österreichischen "Erblanden" ein einheitliches Strafrecht mit geregelten rechtlichen Verfahrensweisen geben wollen. Was die beauftragte Kommission dann zustandebrachte, widersprach "völlig dem Geiste einer aufgeklärten, humanen Zeit" (Kaspers), hatte aber auch nicht lange Bestand. "Die Verbreitung des ominösen Werks wurde von der Regierung verhindert und dasselbe gleich nach Erscheinen unterdrückt" (Hayn/Got. V,451). Bereits 1787 wurde die Theresiana durch das "Allgemeine Gesetz über Verbrechen und Strafen" (nach Kaiser Joseph II. "Josephina" genannt) abgelöst. Auf den Tafeln werden Foltermethoden und Werkzeuge gezeigt, darunter Daumen- und Beinschrauben, Schraubstiefel, Brandfolter, schmerzhafte Schnürung, Aufzugsmaschine u.a. - Mit den beiden meist fehlenden Anhängen: 1. Geheime Anmerkungen . für Unsere Teutsch-erbländische Malefiz-Obergerichten, und die mit peinlichen Gerichtsbarkeit begabte unmittelbare Länderstellen. - 2.

L'ouvrage fut imprimé dans différentes villes de province (le nôtre à Saintes, en Charente Maritime) et vendu aux élèves.Reliure de l'époque en pleine basane brune mouchetée. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de filets, caissons et fleurons floraux dorés, ainsi que d'une pièce de titre de basane blonde. Filet à froid en encadrement des plats. Toutes tranches rouges. Trois coins un peu émoussés. Papier légèrement jauni.Les planches qui illustrent cet ouvrage ont été gravées sur cuivre par Jean Robert, élève de Jacob Christoph Leblon (1667-1741) qui mit au point une technique de gravure en couleurs à la manière noire nécessitant trois ou quatre plaques avec les couleurs primaires, préfigurant la quadrichromie moderne. Cette technique fut mise au point à partir de la théorie de la décomposition de la couleur de Newton.Cet ouvrage, victime de son très grand succès, fut très souvent réimprimé par ordre du Roi qui visait une politique nataliste. à cet effet, il délégua Madame Du Coudray, accoucheuse de la reine Marie de Médicis, dans tout le royaume afin de mettre en place des cours destinés aux élèves sages-femmes de la campagne et à toutes les personnes qui voulaient s'occuper de cet art. Notre exemplaire semble avoir appartenu à l'une de ces sages-femmes comme en témoigne son ex-dono : " Livre d'instruction pour l'usage de françoize nesme fame de jean gelaud [...] instruitte au college royalle de chirurgie de basaçon pour pratiquer les accouchement par ordonnance de Mgr l'intendant de franche comté l'an 1779.

En 1775 amplió su contenido con la publicación de la tercera de las obras encuadernadas en este volumen, 'Della elettricità terrestre atmosferica a cielo sereno', donde, comenzando con el número de parágrafo siguiente al último de Elettricismo artificiale, expuso las peculiaridades de la electricidad detectable en el aire en ausencia de fenómenos meteorológicos. Demostró que tanto en tiempo sereno como en tiempo de tormenta el aire posee carga eléctrica, bien que de signo diferente, generando descargas de carga positiva en tiempo sereno, y alternaciones de carga positiva y negativa en tiempo de tormenta. Benjamin Franklin alabó tanto el trabajo de su amigo Beccaria -un par de décadas atrás había sido el más ferviente partidario de las teorías de Franklin frente a las de Nollet- que hizo que el Tratado y su addenda se tradujesen al inglés, publicándose en Londres, en 1776(1). La segunda de las obras encuadernadas, Experimenta., es una laboriosa demostración de la reversibilidad de la polaridad (oscilación de electricidades, decía él) para explicar en los términos de las teorías de Franklin las observaciones de los denominados Experimentos de Pekín, frente a las explicaciones proporcionadas por Robert Symmer, Gianfrancesco Cigna y otros.- // (1) Se tradujo como A Treatise upon Artificial Electricity, in which are given Solutions of a Number of Interesting Electric Phoenomena, hitherto unexplained. To which is added, an essay on the Mild and Slow Electricity which prevails in the Atmosphere During Serene Weather.- London: printed for J. Nourse, 1776. A finales de 1773 Franklin ya había acabado de traducirla con colaboración de unos amigos y le pidió a Beccaria si podía enviarle 500 copias de los grabados para ilustrarla, lo que efectivamente debió hacer, porque los grabados que contiene son los originales.

      Many woodcut illus. & diagrams in the text. 43; 44; 39; 49; 55 folding leaves. Five vols. 8vo, orig. patterned blue wrappers, orig. block-printed title labels on upper covers, new stitching. Edo: Suharaya Mohei, 1769. First edition of this important and influential mathematical book. "The Seki school was the most popular of the many schools of mathematics in Japan. Yoriyuki Arima (1714-1783), Lord of Kurume, was one of its leaders and was the first to publish its secret theories of algebra. Arima personifies the anomaly of a member of a hereditary warrior class drawn, in a time of enforced peace, to mathematics of the mostly highly abstract and purely aesthetic sort; he, too, had been a pupil of Yamaji, and he took Fujita under his protection and assisted him in the publication of Seiyo sampo. Arima's own Shuki sampo was as popular in its time as Fujita's work, and Aida drew heavily upon both books."-D.S.B., I. p. 83. In this work, Arima "described 150 problems chosen from all fields of wasan research in the Seki tradition. Included were problem-solving procedures - though he gave no theoretical explanations of them. This was the first printed book in which one could find, for instance, a detailed description of Seki's written algebra, called tenzanjutsu. Thenceforth tenzanjutsu became a standard working tool of wasan students in general - almost a full century after its invention by Seki."-Sugimoto & Swain, Science & Culture in Traditional Japan, pp. 365-66. In this work, Arima gave the value of pi which was correct to 29 decimal places. The problems relate to indeterminate equations, the various roots of an equation, the application of algebra to geometry, the inscription of spheres within spheres, maxima and minima, binomial series, and stereometry. While this book was published under the name of Bunkei Toyota, it was actually written by Arima. ❧ Smith, History of Mathematics, Vol. I, pp. 536-37.

        Le Pornographe ou idées d'un honnête-homme sur un projet de règlement pour les Prostituées, propre à prévenir les malheurs qu'occasionne le publicisme des femmes: avec des notes historiques et justificatives.

      à Londres, chez Jean Nourse, & à Paris, chez Delalain, 1769, in 8°, de 368pp., bien complet des deux faux-titres "idées singulières, première (et) 2e partie", demi-veau moucheté moderne genre ancien, dos entièrement orné, tr. rouge. Jolie reliure pastiche. Rare édition originale, du premier tirage avec le nom du libraire Delalain au titre. Ce dernier, par peur de la censure, fit retirer son nom des tirages suivants. C'est un vaste projet de "rationalisation" de la prostitution. Restif qui connaissait bien le sujet, propose d'ériger la prostitution en institution publique sous forme d'établissements appelés "Parthénions". Il explique dans "Mes ouvrages" (p.121) que le "titre du Pornographe... est composé de deux mots grecs: porne, prostituée, et graphos, écrivain, ce qui signifie: écrivain sur la prostitution". Il raconte, d'ailleurs, qu'il "avait vu des filles publiques" en 1755-1759, ainsi qu'en 1761-1769 pour faire le Pornographe... ¶ Rives Childs p.210 "On trouve donc rarement des exemplaires avec le nom de Delalain..." - INED 3790 - Gay amour, femmes III.814 "Certains détails sont assez obscènes" - Lacroix p.102 n°3 "Linguet aurait collaboré à ce texte".

Doppio ex libris sul verso del piatto anteriore, un terzo rimosso sul foglio di guardia a fronte e un quarto sul verso del foglio di guardia. [M127] Opera di notevole rarità. Charles-Nicolas Cochin (Parigi, 1715 - 1790), pittore, scrittore e illustratore francese proveniente da una celebre famiglia di incisori attivi nei secoli XVII e XVIII, poco più che ventenne è incaricato dal giovane Luigi XV di Francia di occuparsi delle commemorazioni dei vari eventi di corte. In occasione delle nozze del Delfino, nel 1745, realizza quattro pregevoli scene, tra cui lo Spectacle de gala. Entrato nelle grazie di Madame de Pompadour, nel 1749 è da lei invitato ad accompagnare il fratello e l'architetto Jacques-Germain Soufflot in Italia per un viaggio di approfondimento artistico. Nel 1755 è nominato direttore dell'Accademia reale e della Société académique des Enfants d'Apollon. Nell'arco della sua carriera ha prodotto oltre 1500 opere, tra cui numerosi ritratti di personaggi illustri e incisioni con le cerimonie del tempo.

Pp. xxiv, 379 (1). Due distinte opere rilegate in due volumi di cm. 28. Bella legatura ottocentesca in mezza perg. con punte; titoli su doppio tass. e fregi in oro al dorso, carta marm. ai piatti. Traccia di antichi timbretti. Fioriture sparse, qualche carta brunita, sporadici e marginali aloni. Esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Stanislao Bardetti (1688-1767), teologo e storico di origini piacentine, è considerato modenese d'adozione. Così la voce B. (Dizionario Biografico degli italiani, vol. VI) a proposito di queste opere: "Gli studi sugli antichi italici, cui il B. aveva atteso per lunghi anni, videro la luce, ad opera di volenterosi editori, solo dopo la sua morte: De, primi abitatori dell'Italia,Modena 1769; Della lingua de' primi abitatori dell'Italia, ibid. 1772. In contrasto con il Maffei e A. S. Mazzocchi che ritenevano preliminare a qualsiasi indagine storica sull'origine dei popoli antichi l'esame accurato delle testimonianze superstiti della loro lingua, il B. credeva che l'indagine propriamente storica dovesse precedere quella linguistica. E, secondo il B., dall'indagine storica sui primitivi abitatori dell'Italia, da lui abitualmente chiamati "Circumpadani", risultava che i più antichi tra essi erano i Liguri e gli Umbri (di stirpe celtica) e i Taurisci (di stirpe germanica); di origine ligustica sarebbero stati poi i Siculi e gli Aborigines, mentre gli Umbri dell'età storica sarebbero discesi dagli Isumbri o Isombri stanziati presso il Lario; di origine umbra erano infine da considerarsi anche gli Aurunci". Entrambe le opere in edizione originale. Cfr. Iccu; Lozzi, I, 24; Platneriana, p. 165; Brunet, I, 653. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Bouquet, the commander of Fort Pitt, successfully lead an offensive against Pontiac's forces with 1500 soldiers. Rather than face the dispersed Indian bands who used hit and run tactics, Bouquet targeted their population centers (i.e. villages) with his superior numbers to force peace.

      - [Advertisement] in: Opregte Haerlemse courant, 27 (1769), p. [2]; Boers, "Bouwstoffen tot eene Nederlandsche muzikale litteratuur", in: Caecilia VI, 2 (1849), p. 15; STCN (2 copies). Very rare second and enlarged edition of an introduction in learning to play keyboard instruments. In the preface, the author writes that the first edition of the treatise was highly praised and quickly sold out. As this necessitated a second edition, he used the occasion to add "everything which came to my mind while instructing [from the book]" (*2r) and include an engraved plate. In this "short and simple manual" the author gives the basics of musical staff notation and of playing basso continuo. Over the next 50 years, the book went through numerous editions but at the time proved to be too complicated for beginners. Therefore, Hess wrote a simplified edition of the book, containing more explanations and an extra illustration, which was published in 1808. No copies of the first edition of the Korte en eenvoudige handleyding could be located, nor could they be identified in any source (cf. Boers).Joachim Hess (1732-1819) was an organist and writer, who wrote several treatises on organs and organ playing. For almost sixty years he played the Moreau organ in the Sint-Janskerk in Gouda, which was changed according to his specifications. In his publications he gives great knowledge of all matters related to the organ and he was famous throughout the Netherlands for both his writing and his playing.With the title-page and the inner part and outer margin of the folding plate browned where they touch the endpapers; a good copy.

        Tabulae Anatomicae clarissimi viri Bartholomaei Eustachii ..

      Venetiis [Venice], Typis Bartolomaei Locatelli ('accurata & pulcherrima Veneta editio, summo studio elaborata, atque diligentissime aere incisa'), 1769. Large folio (approximately 420 x 300 mm), with an engraved frontispiece portrait, title page printed in red and black (with an engraved title vignette of a dissection), and 21 plates of anatomical subjects containing approximately 225 figures, engraved after Eustachius' plates by 'Petrus Monaco'. Early plain laced limp boards, with a few chips or short tears to the spine; a few light and inoffensive stains to the plates, well clear of the illustrations (the first five have a small light spot near the top margin, the balance have a tidemark to the bottom inside corner, becoming larger and more visible only towards the end); the first two plates are slightly cropped along the top edge, affecting a few captions; trifling production flaws to a few plates (occasional creases caused by the drawing of such large sheets through the rolling press; smudges where the copper plate was not wiped completely clean); one old pencil annotation in Italian; one old tear to the front flyleaf expertly sealed; trifling signs of use and age; overall an excellent copy of this rare work, in attractive original condition. Bartolomeo Eustachius (circa 1510/20-1574) completed the plates in 1554. Less stylized than those of his contemporary and antagonist Vesalius, his anatomical illustrations are remarkably accurate despite his support of the old Galenic theories of anatomy. The copper plates remained unpublished in his lifetime and were rediscovered by Giovanni Maria Lancisi, the papal physician, who published them with his own commentaries in 1714. Eustachius' original 47 plates are here re-engraved on 21 plates, an effort made possible by the very large format of this edition. Choulant-Franck, page 202 (giving very few details); Garrison-Morton 391 (the 1714 edition, but the lengthy note is relevant to this edition, and includes the following comment: 'These copperplates are more accurate than the work of Vesalius. Singer was of the opinion that had they appeared in 1552 Eustachius would have ranked with Vesalius as one of the founders of modern anatomy. He discovered the Eustachian tube, the thoracic duct ... and gave the first accurate description of the uterus'). Provenance: Dr Milton Roxanas (purchased from James Tait Goodrich, Englewood, with his catalogue record loosely inserted).
