        O Uraguay, poema …

      Lisbon, Na Regia Officina Typografica, 1769.. FIRST EDITION. 8°, contemporary crimson morocco (spine somewhat darkened, otherwise only very minor wear), almost smooth spine with slightly raised bands caused by recessed cords, in three compartments, gilt fillets, covers with wide roll-tooled border in gilt, floral ornaments gilt at corners and a central medallion gilt, all text block edges gilt, faintly gauffered. Woodcut arms of the Conde de Oeiras (later Marquês de Pombal) in title page. Woodcut headpieces on pp. [1], [21], [47], [69] and [89]. Small woodcut tailpieces on pp. 19, 68, 87 and 102. Light dampstaining in the lower blank margins of the final 8 leaves. Overall in fine condition. (3 ll.), 102 pp., (1 l., 1 integral blank l.). *** FIRST EDITION of a landmark of Brazilian literature. After the fall of the Marquês de Pombal, all available copies were suppressed, and Borba de Moraes describes this edition as "rare and sought after." We have never seen a copy of this book in a contemporary goatskin binding. Moreover, the tooling is very different from any Portuguese binding of this period we have ever seen. Nor have we ever seen it in a contemporary binding of any color other than brown. Might the binding be Brazilian? A study of Brazilian colonial bindings is sorely needed; none of the experts consulted could shed any light on this question. The theme of this great epic is the Spanish and Portuguese campaign against the seven missionary villages in the region southeast of present-day Paraguay, whose Indian inhabitants had allegedly been incited by the Jesuits to revolt against the provisions of the Treaty of 1750. With its grandeur, pomp, and severe beauty, Basilio da Gama's poetry establishes him as the pioneer of Brazilian Indianism, which was later to become a chief theme of Brazilian letters. Written in run-on blank verse, the poem breaks sharply from the classical manner and is sometimes cited as the first Romantic poem in Portuguese. Garrett, whose own Romanticism was considerably influenced by Gama, judged the @Uraguay "the modern poem that is possessed of the most merit." It is "the best, the most nearly perfect poem to be produced in the entire colonial period," declared Ronald de Carvalho, and "will remain a point of reference in our literature, where we may encounter the hidden roots of that Romanticism that was to mark the dawn of our intellectual independence" (@Pequena história da literatura brasileira pp. 153, 159). According to Bandeira, the @Uraguay is "well, even brilliantly written; it contains beautiful descriptions of nature; and deep and sincere feeling is shown in the moving episode of the death of the heroine, Lindoia" (@Brief History of Brazilian Literature p. 55). The book includes on the final leaf sonnets in praise of the author by two important Brazilian authors, Joaquim Ignacio de Seixas Brandão and Ignacio José de Alvarenga Peixoto. This was one of the earliest books printed at the Impressão Regia, which Pombal had established only a year earlier. It is dedicated to Pombal's brother, Francisco Xavier de Mendonça Furtado (Lisboa, 1700-1769), governor general of Grão-Pará and Maranhão (1751-1759), and Secretário de Estado da Marinha e do Ultramar (1760-1769), who barely outlived the book's publication. José Basilio da Gama (1740-1795), born in Minas Geraes, came to Rio de Janeiro at the age of fifteen to study with the Jesuits. He fled to Portugal upon the Order's expulsion. Then, casting aside his novice's robe, he traveled to Rome, where he was admitted to the Roman Arcadia under the name Termindo Sipilio. Several years later he returned to Lisbon via Brazil, but was imprisoned as a former Jesuit and sentenced to exile in Angola. A poem in honor of the Marquês de Pombal's daughter led to forgiveness, while Gama's increasingly anti-Jesuit attitude earned official favor. This was surely a factor in guiding his choice of subject for his epic, as well as his decision to dedicate the work to Pombal's brother, with a laudatory sonnet to Pombal at the beginning. After the fall of Pombal, however, @O Uraguay became a distinct liability. Gama was later given a post in the Secretariat of State, and died in Lisbon. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 338-9; @Período colonial pp. 148-50. Sacramento Blake IV, 330-4.

        The History of Emily Montague. In four volumes. By the author of Lady Julia Mandeville.

      Printed for J. Dodsley 1769 - FIRST EDITION, lacks half-title and final blank K4 in vol. iv, foxed, a few marginal holes or tears without loss, pp. vii, 240; [iv], 240; [iv], 223; [ii], 213, [2], 12mo, . An epistolary novel, set partly in Canada, or, as the British Canadian Review put it (quoted by Sabin) it contains 'a racy description of Canadian scenery, colonial courtships, and Quebec society in olden times.' The descriptions of the natives, and in particular the womenfolk, would not now be termed 'racy'. 'The author, whose husband was garrison chaplain 1760-68, lived at Quebec and Sillery between 1763 and 1768' (Staton and Tremaine).

MDCCLXIX (1769). 12mo., x + 342 + (2)pp., possibly wanting a half-title, but with the final leaf of 'fautes à corriger', small repair to a preliminary leaf slightly obscuring a few letters, contemporary calf, professionally rebacked, spine fully gilt with raised bands and label.

[bound with], [MIGNOT, Etienne]> Observations de l'auteur du 'Traité des Prêts de Commerce'. Sur les 'Principes théologiques, canoniques & civils sur l'usure'.> n.p. MDCCIXIX (1769). 12mo., 46pp. A very good copy. First edition: apparently very rare. No other copy located. Masui p.597. INED 3168. A good group of three French contributions to the difficult question of usury and the appropriate level of interest rates on loans. 1769 also saw the publication by Turgot (Les prêts d'argent>) of his memoir on money-lending which paved the way for the later removal of controls over interest rates by the Revolutionary authorities. When in England, Jeremy Bentham published his own celebrates Defence of usury>, it became merely a matter of time before the usury laws were repealed elsewhere, although in practice it was not until the 1850s and 1860s that much of the legislation in Europe (other than in Germany) was passed having the effect of encouraging a relatively free money market. It is worth noting that La Forest, La Porte and Mignot all seem to have taken a traditional anti-usury line but concede that interest could lawfully be charged under certain conditions.

        Essai d'une Distribution généalogique des sciences et des arts principaux.

      Weimar: Benard, , 1769. Selon l'explication détaillée du système des connoissances humaines dans le discours préliminaire des Editeurs de l'Encyclopédie, publiée par M. Diderot et M. d'Alembert. A Paris en 1751. Réduit en cette forme pour découvrir la connaissance humaine d'un coup d'oeil. Engraved broadside (97.5 x 62.5 mm, engraved area 930 x 620 mm). Sometime folded, now mounted, framed and glazed. Very slight wear along folds; an excellent copy. A very rare engraved genealogical depiction of the arts and sciences, as explained in the preliminary discourse of Diderot and d'Alembert's great Encyclopédie, conceived by Chrétien (or Christian) Roth, and engraved by Benard. Following Francis Bacon's Tree of Knowledge as described in The Advancement of Learning of 1605, and the table "Systême figuré des connaissances humaines" produced for the Encyclopédie, Roth here depicts the genealogical form of knowledge in the shape of a tree, the three main branches of Memory, Reason and Imagination subdividing into "fruit", the domains of science known to man. Robert Benard (born 1734) engraved, or directed the engraving of, at least 1800 plates for Diderot's groundbreaking Encyclopédie, published between 1751 and 1772. He was also responsible for a large number of the plates included in James Cook's Voyages. Little appears to be know of Roth, other than that he was apparently a teacher in Weimar, who subsequently authored the Versuch einer Mappe-Monde Litteraire published in Erfurt in 1785, described on OCLC as a sequel to the present work. The present engraving was subsequently included in the 1780 edition of Pierre Mouchon's Table analytique et raisonnée des matières contenues dans les XXXIII volumes in-folio du dictionnaire des sciences, des arts et des métiers, et dans son supplement.

        Descrizione delle Feste celebrate in Parma l'anno MDCCLXIX per le auguste Nozze di Sua Altezza Reale l'Infante Don Ferdinando colla Reale Arciduchessa Maria Amalia.

      Parma, nella Stamperia Reale (di G.B.Bodoni), (1769), - in-folio imperiale, ff. (5, il primo f. bianco), pp. 76 di testo italiano e francese su due colonne (caratteri tondi e corsivi di corpo e spaziatura diversa), 36 ff. di tavole f.t., 1 f. bianco. Bella legatura strettamente coeva in piena pelle alle armi di Ferdinando I di Parma, al dorso ripetuti simboli araldici della famiglia (torre e leone rampante). Si tratta di un esemplare di dedica fatto rilegare dalla corte parmense alle armi dello sposo. Antiporta in rame disegnata da Petitot e incisa da Volpato, frontespizio, realizzato dai medesimi artisti, con grande vignetta alle armi Borbone fiancheggiate dai leoni di Spagna, 5 testate, 8 capilettera e 19 finalini incisi in rame; 36 tavole fuori testo incise in rame di cui 6 a doppia pagina. Grandiosa pubblicazione voluta dalla Corte Ducale di Parma con la descrizione dei principali spettacoli allestiti per le nozze tra Ferdinando duca di Borbone e Amalia d'Asburgo, sorella dell'imperatore (''Descrizione degli abiti'', ''Nomi delle Nobil Persone impegnate nel torneo'', ''Le Pastorelle d'Arcadia, festa campestre'', ''Relazione'', ''Fiera Chinese''). Brooks segnala che ne furono tirate 2 edizioni, ciascuna di 400 copie, che però non risultano in vendita nei cataloghi del Bodoni, perché l'opera fu ben presto esaurita. L'imponente apparato decorativo fu affidato a Eurimond Alexandre Petitot, architetto e disegnatore nato a Lione nel 1727 ed ormai all'apice della sua carriera di architetto di corte, in collaborazione con il giovane Bodoni, solo da un anno in città come nuovo direttore della Stamperia Reale, e quindi all'esordio della sua gloriosa attività. Le Feste sono la seconda opera in cui i due collaborano e Petitot vi figura non solo quale inventore e realizzatore dei complessi progetti architettonici, ma anche come scenografo, costumista e decoratore, avendo fornito i disegni delle molte illustrazioni dell'opera, magistralmente rese da Benigno Bossi, principale riproduttore all'acquaforte, da Volpato, Patrini e altri. L'eco delle feste e della loro pubblicazione fu molto vasto. Jean Pierre Mariette si stupiva ''à voir sortir d'une imprimerie naissante un livre si parfaitement exécuté dans toutes ses parties.un chef-d'oeuvre''. Maria Antonietta confessava alla sorella Maria Amalia di aver spesso sfogliato il ''beau livre'' per ritrovarsi con lei. Stupendo esemplare della prima tiratura, nitidamente impresso su carta assai pesante piccolo strappo riparato al margine bianco di una tavola, lievissime macchie d'umido nel margine esterno bianco di alcuni ff., occhietto e ultima tavola con macchioline nel margine superiore bianco. . Brooks 6 e tavole I, III, V: ''Forse il più attraente di tutti i libri di Bodoni per la bellezza delle figure''. Ruggeri 859. Giani, p. 1-3: ''molte copie distrutte da varie circostanze e soprattutto deturpate dagli amatori di stampe.''. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      M. Lambert, Paris 1769 - 8vo. Modern full calf, raised bands with gilt borders and center flower, title in upper panel. The spine has green morocco label with author, title and date in gilt. Collation: [iv] 1-126 [2-ad for present book by Le Begue] pp. + 3 folding copper engraved plates. There is repair to the title page where a portion of the lower right corner is missing. A piece of light brown paper has been pasted on the verso of the title page and the fore edge reinforced with a strip of paper on verso. This is a large paper, uncut copy that is very clean. The only exception is a brown paper flaw on p. 13/14 at the lower edge of the last text line. There is a repair to a tear into the plate area of the second plate. The area affected only involves the double line border and not any of the main images. This treatise provides a new method for extracting more abundant and finer oil from olives. The author provides information on a new mill invented for domestication of olive oil extraction which yields not only a larger quantity of oil but an oil that is free of rancidity.

        Instructions Adressees par Sa Majeste L'Imperatrice de Toutes les.

      1769 - Early French-Language Edition of Catherine's Nakaz Catherine II [1762-1796], Empress of Russia. [Landres, J. Rodolphe Frey de, Translator]. Instructions Adressees par Sa Majeste L'Imperatrice de Toutes les Russies: A la Commission Etablie Pour Travailler a L'Execution du Projet d'un Nouveau Code de Lois. Traduit de l'Allemand. "A Petersbourg" [i.e. Yverdon, Switzerland]: [s.n.], 1769. 286 pp. 12mo. (6" x 4"). Early quarter vellum over marbled boards, untrimmed edges, a few unopenened signatures. Light soiling, corners lightly bumped and worn. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier in places, some leaves have light foxing, a few have light dampstining to margins, internally clean. Ex-library. Small inkstamp to title page. A handsome copy. * Reissue of the first edition in French, published for by the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences for private distribution in 1769. This important text, also known as the Nakaz, or Instruction, is a statement of legal principles written by Catherine II from 1764 and 1766. Permeated with the ideas of the French Enlightenment, and copied mostly from the work of Voltaire, Montesquieu and Beccaria, it was compiled as a guide for the All-Russia Legislative Commission convened by the Empress in 1767 to create a new code to replace the 1649 Muscovite Code. Revised in consultation with Beccaria, Frederick the Great and Voltaire, the Instruction proclaimed the equality of all men before the law and disapproved of death penalty and torture. Unfortunately, her proposed code was never completed. Catherine's manuscript was written in French, and she later produced a Russian translation. Editions in German and Russian were published in Moscow in 1767. The book was initially banned in France because it was too liberal, which is why the first French-language edition was produced in Switzerland (with a false imprint). French and Latin editions were eventually published in 1770. OCLC locates 6 copies of this imprint in North American law libraries (Columbia, George Washington University, Harvard, Library of Congress, UC-Berkeley, Yale).

      Boston: Thomas & John Fleet, 1769. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards, spines gilt with leather labels. Titlepage of second volume with some slight loss, affecting several letters, neatly repaired; titlepage of third volume with minor loss of blank corner, neatly repaired. Minor foxing and toning. Very good. The first edition of this classic Massachusetts history, published in three separate volumes. The first volume discusses the early years of the colony from first settlement in 1628 until 1691. The second volume covers Massachusetts from the 1691 charter until 1750, and includes an index to both volumes. The third volume was published by Hutchinson to support and elucidate the principal facts related in the first two volumes of the History of Massachusetts Bay, and may serve as an appendix to it. According to Sabin, this third volume is "a necessary adjunct to Hutchinson's HISTORY." "Hutchinson's HISTORY OF MASSACHUSETTS-BAY accurately recounted these events and contained sympathetic accounts of Puritanism; the Antinomian heresy of Hutchinson's ancestor, Anne Hutchinson; and Massachusetts opposition in the 1680s to the 'tyrannical disposition' of the royalist governor, Sir Edmund Andros, and his administration's 'harpies.' Hutchinson's HISTORY acknowledged the multiplicity of jostling interest groups in Massachusetts and the duty of government to protect the public interest from the demands of self-interested groups" - ANB. Hutchinson (1711-80), besides being a colonial historian, was governor of Massachusetts from 1771 to 1773 and a staunch Loyalist. He left Boston for London in late 1773, after he had helped cause the Boston Tea Party, and remained in exile in England until his death in 1780. The first two volumes of Hutchinson's work on the Massachusetts colony are complete unto themselves, but the third volume acts as a valuable appendix. Each volume is rare; rarer still to find both together. An important and early colonial history. HOWES H853. EVANS 9705, 10658, 11300. ESTC W20456, W20464, W31190. SABIN 34075, 34078, 34069.

        Patriotische Gedanken von dem wahren Nutzen des Vaterlandes. [Motto aus Vergil]. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt.

      verlegts Matthäus Rieger und Söhne, Augsburg und Leipzig 1769 - (4) Bll., 189, (1) S. [Angebunden:] CARACCIOLO, DOMENICO. Praktische Landökonomie der Alten. Nebst einem Entwurfe derselben zum Besten des gemeinen Wesens wieder aufzuhelfen. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt. Augsburg, verlegts Matthäus Rieger und Söhne 1770. (12) Bll., 164 S., (1) Bll. Lederband d.Zt. auf vier Bünden mit Rückenschild. Leicht berieben, eine Oberkante mit kleiner Fehlstelle im Bezug. Jeweils erste dt. Ausgabe (nicht bei Fromm; nicht bei Humpert; nicht bei Kress etc.). – Stockfleckig. Beide Schriften stammen NICHT von dem auf den Titeln unterstellten LOUIS-ANTOINE CARACCIOLI (1719 Paris 1803), Feind der Aufklärung und Vielschreiber im Interesse der katholischen Gegenaufklärung. Die deutschen Ausgaben (fast) aller seiner Schriften stammen aus der „Übersetzungsfabrik“ Riegers in Augsburg, dem Zentrum der gegenaufklärerischen katholischen Propaganda. Beide Werke haben wohl wegen dieser Fehlattribution die Aufmerksamkeit der aufgeklärten Zeitgenossen in Deutschland wie auch der Forschung bis heute nicht gefunden. Zu 1) Sehr seltene Übersetzung des zuerst 1764 in drei Drucken gleichzeitig erschienenen Werk „Des véritables intérêts de la patrie“ eines für mich nicht weiter identifizierbaren Chevalier DE FORGE oder FORGES. In seinem Aufsatz „Noblesse et èconomie morale. Le Comte de Forges“ (S.23ff. in: Christine Le Bozec u.a. Pour la Revolution francaise . Rouen 1998) stellt Daniel Roche „une certaine confusion avec un chevalier de Forges“ (S.23) fest. Er hält ihn für einen Edelmann aus der Provinz Berry in Zentralfrankreich, seine Schrift für eine Reaktion von konservativ reformerischer Seite auf ROUSSEAUs Kritik am verschwenderischen Luxus der französischen Gesellschaft. Zu 2) DOMENICO CARACCIOLO (Neapel 1715 – 1789 ?) wurde 1763 Botschafter des Königs von Neapel in London, kam dann nach Paris, 1770 ebenfalls zum Botschafter ernannt. Hier stand er in Kontakt zu D’ALEMBERT, HELVÉTIUS, DIDEROT, GALIANI. Sein Traktat, im frz. Original L’Agriculture simplifiée selon les règles des anciens (Paris 1769), ist Ausdruck der Bedeutung, die die Enzyklopädisten einer modernen Landwirtschaft als Grundlage eines aufgeklärten Staats beimaßen. In der Vorrede spricht CARACCIOLO von der Notwendigkeit, den „Feldbau“ auf eine wissenschaftliche Grundlage zu stellen. Am Schluss entwirft er ein quasi utopisches Bild einer Gesellschaft, die auf Ordnung und Effizienz basiert. Die Ideen der Enzyklopädisten suchte er in die Praxis umzusetzen, als er 1781 das Vizekönigtum Sizilien übernahm. Einige dieser Reformen sind bereits in der vorliegenden Schrift angedeutet. 1786 endete seine Regentschaft. 1805 erschien postum seine Schrift Riflessioni sull’economia a l’estrazione de’frumenti della Sicilia, in der er über seine Erfahrungen bei der Umsetzung der Reformen berichtet.

        Elementa physicae. Tomus I (-VIII).

      Naples, Donato Campi, 1767-1769. - 8vo. 8 vols. With engraved frontispiece and a total of 130 folding plates (several in the 6th volume loose). Contemp. marbled boards with giltstamped spine labels. All edges sprinkled in red. Final, most extensive edition of this compendium of 18th century science, compiled by the naturalist Gianmaria della Torre (1710-82), a Somascan Father and professor of physics in Naples. The first two volumes treat general physics, the others are dedicated to special fields, including thermometry, geophysics and minerals, metals, magnetism, earthquakes and volcanism, electricity, hydrophysics with rivers and ice, hydraulics as well as navigation; botany, animal life, the human body, anatomy; atmospheric phenomena and the perception of sound, light, colours, optics, etc. Of particular interest are the numerous engraved illustrations, showing not only instruments and experiments, but also maps of the Old and New World (Europe, Africa, Asia, America), the Torne River on Finland's Arctic Circle, the English Channel, crystals, volcanoes (with several views of Vesuvius and its latest eruptions), pumps and pumping stations, diving bells, etc. "Della Torre was a man of wide culture and of wide scientific curiosity. His studies led him into the history of philosophy, optics, and microscopy [.]; in addition, he observed and recorded eruptions of Vesuvius [. His] most important work, however, was as an encyclopedist. His two-volume work, 'Scienza della natura' (Naples, 1748-1749; [.] a considerably enlarged Neapolitan edition appeared in 1767-1780 as 'Elementa physicae'), anticipated the more famous 'Encyclopédie' the publication of which began in 1751. [. Della Torre's 'Elementa'] presents a complete and ordered picture of the state of scientific knowledge in its time. Although Della Torre's work is almost forgotten today, he was strongly influential in establishing the scientific climate of 18th-century Italy" (DSB). - Bindings rubbed and bumped; variously brownstained and waterstained; a few plates loose; unappealing old collector's stamps to title pages. Almost never encountered complete (as thus): no copy in auction records internationally; even libraries rarely hold more than four or six volumes, while the eighth and last volume is almost never present (nine-volume sets - such as those in the libraries of Benevento and Veroli - collect all the illustrations into a single volume of plates).

        Physicalische und politische Betrachtungen über die Erzeugung des Menschen und Bevölkerung der Länder

      Smirna, in der neuen Buchdruckerei mit Genehmigung des Bassa (d.i. Breslau, Korn) 1769 - Ein Band in 8vo; 152 Seiten; grüner Pappband von ca. 1920 mit goldgeprägtem Rückenschild, gering berieben, der vordere Vorsatz beidseitig mit Anmerkungen von alter Hand, gering gebräunt, innen sonst sauber und frisch, ein sehr gutes Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten. Justi verfasste diese Schrift wohl während seiner Haft auf der Festung Küstrin. Auch Justi ist der Auffassung, dass der Reichtum des Staates in seiner arbeitenden Bevölkerung besteht. Folglich ist das kameralistische Ziel der Reichtums- und Machtentfaltung des Staates gegenüber anderen nur durch eine ausgeprägte Populationspolitik zu erreichen. Dabei kommt er zu Vorschlägen, deren technokratische Rationalität an Huxley’s Brave New World erinnern lassen. So scheut er sich nicht, die Einrichtung von Frauenhäusern zu empfehlen, in denen Männer Kinder zeugen, die dann unter staatlicher Obhut zweckgerichtet aufgezogen werden.

      Boston: Edes & Gill, 1769. First Edition. Hardcover. The title page has suffered insect damage causing the loss of about half of the right side affecting the text there as well as about 1/3 of the text on the verso. A facsimile of this leaf is included in a special pocket in the box. The next few leaves show some marginal damage but no text is affected. The remainder is clean. Unobtrusive library markings on three pages. Very Good. Recently re-sewn into marbled paper over boards, with a printed paper label on the front panel and fresh endpapers, and enclosed in a custom clamshell box with a leather spine lettering piece. Adams 62A, Evans 11133, Heartman 509 ("certainly one of the most important pre-revolutionary pamphlets"), Sabin 6478. For several years there had been rising enmity between the Massachusetts Assembly and the appointed Governor of Massachusetts, Francis Bernard, over a number of issues. Eventually this led to serious unrest, the unwelcome presence of British troops, and the organization of the Sons of Liberty. Then a series of inflammatory letters were made public from Governor Bernard and others to the Earl of Hillsborough who had recently been named Secretary of State for the Colonies. The members of the Assembly, who felt they had been "traduced and vilified," appointed a committee to reply to the letters, resulting in this response.

T., leicht fleckig, angestaubt, leichte Gbrsp. - Rétif de la Bretonne, [auch Restif de la Bretonne] (1734 - 1806), wurde 1734 in Sacy bei Auxerre als Sohn eines wohlhabenen Bauern geboren. Rétif de la Bretonne war seit seinem 15. Lebensjahr gelernter Drucker und wurde Autor von etwa 200 Büchern, die zum Teil noch nicht wissenschaftlich ausgewertet worden sind. Er verfasste Sittenromane und Sozialutopien und schrieb zuletzt, um Zeit zu sparen, direkt in den Setzkasten. Rétif de la Bretonne gilt oft als bloßer Pornograf. Tatsächlich hat er aber eine Ergänzung zu Sade's Bild der Aristokratie in seinen freizügigen Schilderungen der niederen Stände geliefert. De Sade war ein Kontrahent Rétifs. Seine sexuelle Fixierung auf Schuhe, geschildert in dem Roman „Le Pied de Fanchette", führte zu der Bezeichnung Retifismus für diese Art von Fetischismus. Zu seinen skurrilsten Einfällen gehört die Idee, per Gesetz die Verheiratung aller 16-jährigen Männer mit 32-jährigen Frauen zu gebieten. Nach 16 Jahren sollten diese Ehen automatisch geschieden werden, um dann wiederum eine jüngere zu heiraten. Vergleichbare Ideen hat auch Arthur Schopenhauer geäußert. Als Schilderer der Sitten der französischen Revolutionszeit hat ihn Iwan Bloch gewürdigt. Retif konnte sich rühmen jenseits des Rheins der meistgelesene (französische) Autor zu sein.

        Veduta di S. Pier d'Arena (ripetuto in francese)

      Genova 1769 - Incisione in rame, mm 510x1490, firmata in basso "Gius. Riviera del.", "Giolfi inv." e "Guid f.". Lunga bellissima veduta della città, una fra le più celebri e ricercate dai collezionisti, facente parte di Raccolta di diverse vedute della città di Genova e delle principali sue parti e fabbriche. Nato nel 1721 Giolfi pubblicò nel 1769, dedicandola a Giuseppe Doria e a suo padre Giovanni Francesco morto prematuramente, la sua opera più nota: Raccolta di diverse vedute della città di Genova e delle principali sue parti e fabbriche, composta da venti acqueforti eseguite in collaborazione con i toscani Giuseppe Torricelli per la stesura preparatoria, Gian Lorenzo Guidotti (autore di alcune tavole per la seconda edizione dell'Encyclopédie) per l'incisione, oltre a Giuseppe Riviera per l'esecuzione dei disegni delle due tavole di San Pier d'Arena e della Villa Doria a Fassolo e ai Chiesa Tessera, autori di quattro lastre. Il G. scelse e diresse i collaboratori limitandone talvolta l'invenzione e il disegno (Poleggi, 1986, pp. 17 s.). Oggi si conosce una sola copia rilegata dell'intera raccolta di stampe. Nella Veduta di San Pier d'Arena la qualità del disegno rivela la presenza di Giuseppe Riviera, mentre la Veduta di Genova dalla parte di Bisagno offre una particolare impaginazione paesistica ad anfiteatro della città, una schematizzazione che individua le linee portanti di una zona periferica dove l'abbraccio delle colline è interrotto dalle grandi opere difensive. Ottimo esemplare con qualche strappo marginale e due lunghi strappi nell'incisione a sinistra, tutto restaurato professionalmente
