        The History of England from the accession of James I to the elevation of the House of Hanover. Edit. III.

      London: for Edward and Charles Dilly,, 1769. 4 volumes, octavo (212 × 128 mm). Contemporary pale calf, covers with the cap of liberty centrally stamped gilt within a gilt rule border, spines decorated gilt with a liberty cap device in each compartment, contrasting red and green morocco lettering- and numbering-pieces, marbled endpapers. Engraved medallion portrait frontispiece. Armorial bookplate to front pastedowns. Spine ends lightly rubbed, two joints partly cracked, covers with a little surface abrasion, occasional light spotting; a very attractive set. First octavo edition, the third overall, in a binding commissioned by Thomas Hollis; a further volume was published in 1772. Catharine Macaulay's history was published episodically, the first volume in 1763, the final volume in 1783. Macaulay's freely expressed republican ideas and warmly expressed sympathy for the colonists had significant influence in America, and through her History she became acquainted with Benjamin Franklin, Josiah Quincy, Benjamin Rush, Richard Henry Lee, John Adams, Ezra Styles, and Jonathan Mayhew, many of whom visited her in Britain. "Catharine Macaulay's History has been attacked as a 'masterly example of how not to write history' and it has been claimed that she was no scholar (Peardon, 60). But research into the contents of her library, revealed by her Catalogue of Tracts of 1790, and careful examination of the sources she used in her History reveal a meticulous scholar" (ODNB). The present edition was supported by Thomas Hollis. "Hollis believed citizenship should be active: individuals had an important role to play in public life... He believed that legitimate government was contractual, and that the people as constituent authority were entitled to replace tyrants by new governments. As a republican Hollis provided material for Catharine Macaulay's History of England. Yet he was also a patriotic Englishman and warm supporter of the house of Hanover ... Convinced of the decadence of his own times but hopeful for the future, Hollis's principal contribution to public service was the protection and advancement of English liberty by circulating appropriate books on government, for he argued that 'if government goes right, all goes right' (Robbins, 'Library', 8). From 1754 onwards he reprinted and distributed literature from the seventeenth-century republican canon, thus keeping the cause of parliamentary reform alive during a difficult period. Among the works were Toland's Life of Milton, tracts by Marchmont Nedham, Henry Neville, and Philip Sidney, and John Locke's Two Treatises of Government; they were elegantly bound to give them greater effect and tooled with libertarian ornaments such as the liberty cap and owl. He also designed and distributed medals based on Greek and Roman models and prints as part of his plan. Initially the tracts were directed towards libraries throughout Britain and continental Europe; later he turned his generosity to America" (ibid.)

        Frontespizio delle Diverse Maniere d'adornare i Cammini

      1769. Acquaforte e bulino, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa ad inchiostro nero su carta vergata coeva recante la filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB" (Robison 37), con pieni margini, consueta piega centrale verticale, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Diverse Maniere d'adornare i Cammini ed ogni altra parte degli edifizi.. L'opera viene pubblicata nel 1769, tuttavia una serie di epistole ne riconduce l'epoca ad alcuni anni prima, e si suppone che già nel 1767 un buon numero di tavole fosse pronto. Dal punto di vista stilistico questa può essere senza alcun dubbio considerata come il massimo dell'estro espresso dal Piranesi. Definirlo tuttavia risulta impresa disperata; ne barocco, ne neoclassico e ne manierista, ma come semplicemente appellato dal Focillon "stile Piranesi". La novità espressa dalle sessanta tavole che compongono il volume risulta essere, tralasciando la bellezza intrinseca delle incisioni, il fatto di rimanerne ammaliati dalla fantasia prorompente, dalla loro immediatezza, e da un intreccio di nostalgie classiche e ricordi barocchi, essendo quasi consapevoli di entrare nei sogni allucinati di un archeologo. Nel rappresentare i camini, i mobili, gli orologi e quanto altro espresso in Diverse maniere il Piranesi si serve di alcune figure ornamentali che si possono dividere in due grandi categorie. La prima comprende elementi tratti dal repertorio decorativo dell'antichità classica con particolare riferimento a quella egizia, mentre l'altra categoria è rappresentata da elementi del lessico della natura, presente soprattutto con esemplari della fauna. I concetti del Piranesi, espressi nelle forme qui da lui inventate e ricreate, appaiono inquietanti e ambigui, addirittura contraddittori e se si vuole precursori del romanticismo. A conferma della teoria di molti studiosi, che lo considerano come precursore dello stile letterario dell'Impero piuttosto che massimo esponente del neoclassicismo. Etching and engraving, signed at lower right. A very fine impression on contemporary laid paper, with "double circle and fleur - de - lis with letters CB" (Robinson 37), with margins, generally in very good conditions. Diverse Maniere d'adornare i Cammini ed ogni altra parte degli edifizi.. This volume was published in 1769, although a number of letters suggest that work on it had begun a few years before and that, probably, a large number of plates were ready by 1767. From a stylistic point of view, it can undoubtedly be considered as the zenith of Piranesi's inspiration. However, it defies classification; neither baroque nor neo - classical or mannerist, it is, as Focillon simply put it "in Piranesi's style". The novelty embodied in the sixty plates which make up the volume, apart from the intrinsic beauty of the engravings, consists in their spell - binding imagination, their straightforwardness and in an intertwining of classical yearnings and baroque remembrances, being nearly conscious of setting foot into the entranced dreams of an archaeologist. When depicting fireplaces, pieces of furniture, clocks or any other object, Piranesi utilised different decorative themes, which can be broadly divided into two groups. The first one consisted of motifs derived from classical antiquity, especially from Ancient Egypt, while the second theme was inspired by nature, with particular emphasis on elements of the fauna. Piranesi's ideas appear to be disquieting, ambiguous and contradictory, possibly leading toward Romanticism, thus confirming the theory held by a number of scholars who consider him a forerunner of the literary style of the Empire rather than as the foremost exponent of neo - classicism.

        Veduta della città di Genova dalla parte di Bisagno (ripetuto in francese)

      1769. Incisione in rame, mm 515x1500, firmata in basso "Torric 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 restaurato

        Concilios Provinciales Primero, y Segundo, celebrados en la muy noble, y muy leal ciudad de Mexico, presidiendo el Illmo. y Rmo. Senor D. F. Alonso de Montufar, en los anos de 1555, y 1565

      Mexico City: Joseph Antonio de Hogal, 1769. First edition thus. Folio, pp. title, 4 ff, pp. 396, 6 ff. Title page in red and black, with numerous head- and tail-pieces throughout. Beginning on page 209 there is a series of biographies of the bishops of the Mexican Province, i.e. Mexico, Puebla, Guatemala (Antigua), Antequera (Oaxaca), and Yucatan (Merida). (Palau 142386 and Sabin 42063/4& 42066) Laid in is a copy of a letter Lorenzana sent to the Pope, in facing pages of Latin and Spanish, which apparently accompanied a copy of this book and another work, as gifts. Hogal is arguably the greatest Mexican printer: the printing was funded by Archbishop Lorenzana, whose name generally appears as the author. Sabin states: "The first Council was originally printed in 1556, at Mexico, by Juan Pablos [the first printer in the New World] ..This collection of Mexican Councils is of importance as containing those of 1535 and 1565, nowhere else to be found", though in fact they were reprinted in Mexico in 1855. In addition to the Councils is a section which gives the biographical particulars of the Mexican bishops, see by see, as well as a 4 pastoral letters, none of which are published elsewhere. In the succeeding year, Hogal published the third Council, of 1585, though this is entirely in Latin., and was reprinted several times even before this date: Porrua (Diccionario) calls it "el mas importante para la vida religiosa y aun social y politica de la Nueva Espana, y los obispados que por entonces formaban parte de la provincia de Mexico." Lorenzana was archbishop of Mexico (1766-72) - considered the most brilliant of his century - and then Cardinal Archbishop of Toleda, i.e. head of the Spanish Church. Much material on the treatment of the Indians and the effort to evangelize them. Bound in period vellum: minor worming, almost all of which has been expertly repaired, and none of which involved a loss of text. Very good copy.

        [HWV 63. Judas Maccabaeus]. Frammenti degl'Oratorii Del Signor Handel. Musical manuscript. Of French provenance. After 1747

      Except for the Italian text and omitted bass figures, there are no obvious differences from early editions (e.g., London: Randall, [1769]). We have been unable to trace another copy with the same Italian text (including that of the manuscript full score at the University of Louisville in the Ricersoli collection). "Handel composed Judas Maccabaeus, the planned victory oratorio, in July and August 1746. The libretto was the work of the Rev. Thomas Morell, who was to provide the words for three more oratorios and in later life left a fascinating account of his collaboration with the composer... Judas Maccabaeus opened on 1 April... It was highly successful and proved to be one of the most enduringly popular of the oratorios, though the alterations made for later revivals tended to emphasize its jubilant and military elements rather than the pleas for reconciliation and peace which Morell had thoughtfully incorporated and Handel had carefully set. The early performances also included a concerto for orchestra with two wind groups, the first of three such works partly but very effectively arranged from earlier music (especially choruses). The season seemed to mark the end of all opposition to Handel. Lord Middlesex';s company returned to the King';s Theatre and opened their season on 14 November 1747 with Lucio Vero, an all-Handel pasticcio, now more in tribute to the composer than in rivalry." Anthony Hicks in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio (305 x 230 mm). [i] (title) + 23 pp. manuscript music. Notated in brown ink on 10-stave paper. In Italian, with remnants of English text in pencil. Watermark of the French papermaker Jacques Berger of Thiers incorporating grapes and the name "J Berger." With early ownership manuscript notation in French to upper margin of title: "Mlle. La C[?ette] de Coumont." Contents: f.1r: title, with blank staves; f.1v-8r: chorus "Gemi infelice popol di Sion" [= Mourn, ye afflicted children]; f.8v-12v: chorus "Per te Sion" [= For Sion lamentation make]; final two measures lacking. Scored for Violino 1o., Violino 2o., Viola, Oboë 1o., Oboë 2o., Soprano, Contralto, Tenore, Basso [vocal], Basso [instrumental - no figures]. Disbound. Slightly worn; edges browned; occasional show-through and small ink stains.

        Vue de la Ville de Genes du cotè de Bisagno.

      - Genova, 1769. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 50,5 x 75 (il foglio). L'intera veduta prevede due fogli, noi disponiamo soltanto di una solo di essi. L'Autore (Genova, 1721). Nel 1769 il Giolfi pubblicò, 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 acquaforti eseguite in collaborazione con i toscani Giuseppe Torricelli, per la stesura preparatoria, e Gian Lorenzo Guidotti, per l'incisione (ma anche altri furono i suoi collaboratori). Per quanto la personalità del Giolfi sembri essere in queste ancora poco efficace nel risolvere certi problemi tecnici ed espressivi della "veduta" (pensiamo alle coeve esperienze veneziane, fiorentine, romane e napoletane), la raccolta rappresentò un'iniziativa nuova per Genova. Il frutto del lavoro del Giolfi e dei suoi collaboratori è soprattutto un'occasione importante per la formazione dell'immagine di Genova come città d'arte, in un momento in cui s'afferma per la prima volta il genere letterario della guida. Del resto, anche le didascalie bilingui (italo - francesi) della raccolta, contribuiscono al costituirsi di un fiorente mercato librario e poliglotta. L'opera è lontana da pedanteria e ufficialità, per l'assenza di monumenti quali la cattedrale, palazzo ducale o palazzo S. Giorgio. Nel frontespizio è collocata la "Veduta della città di Genova", ideata secondo uno schema ottico a metà strada tra la veduta di costa e quella a volo d'uccello, che crea una figurazione raccorciata e diretta sull'edilizia che si affaccia sulla città portuale, lasciando in ombra la collina. L'impianto si distende dalla Lanterna fino alle ville d'Albaro, trascurando la Val Bisagno e prediligendo il monte Fasce. La "Veduta di Genova dalla parte di Bisagno" offre una particolare impaginazione paesistica della città, che individua le linee portanti di una zona periferica dove l'abbraccio delle colline è interrotto dalle grandi opere difensive. L'opera ebbe molto successo, sia nell'ambiente accademico sia in quello dell'editoria locale, fu più volte ristampata e ampliata, e inserita in altre importanti raccolte (alcune tavole furono inserite da Carlo Giuseppe Ratti nell' "Instruzione", 1780; e il libraio editore Yves Gravier ornò di alcune vedute del Giolfi le edizioni della sua "Description des beautés de Gênes et de ses environs"). Oggi si conosce una sola copia rilegata dell'intera raccolta di incisioni (fogli sparsi fanno invece la loro comparsa sul mercato antiquario), donata dallo stesso Giolfi e conservata presso la Biblioteca del Convento dei Cappuccini della SS. Concezione di Genova (a un frate erudito e storico genovese, Tommaso Maria Olivieri, si deve l'apposizione della data al momento dell'acquisizione dell'opera e alcune notizie che identificano l'autore come professore di pittura e segretario dell'Accademia ligustica; dal frontespizio del manoscritto si evince pure l'appartenenza dell'artista all'Accademia parmense). Rara. Seppur rifilata e con alcuni difetti sui margini, bella veduta con un buono stato dell'inciso.

Internally little evenly browned, occasional minor spotting and soiling, some offsetting to plates affecting headline plate numbers in places, plates XII and XV trimmed in blank outer margin. Provenance: Dr. R. Germain (bookplate to front pastedown). A handsome copy. ---- NLM/Blake, p.260. Waller 5656; Wellcome II, p. 492; Heirs of Hippocrates 919 (all three for 1777 edition). - THE RARE SECOND EDITION. First published in 1759 without illustrations. " Le Boursier, a prominent Parisian midwife, first published the present work in 1759 without illustrations. The success of the book encouraged her to have later editions illustrated by Jean Robert . The 1769 edition was the first book on midwifery to appear with plates printed in multiple colors. Robert, a pupil of Le Blon, is known to have illustrated only three books and this was his most copiously illustrated book. The finely applied colors often appear to be hand-painted rather than printed." (Heirs of Hippocrates 919). The book is quite rare with only two copies recorded at auctions in the past 50 years.

        A state of the evidence in the cause between His Grace the Duke of Hamilton,

      4to., (12) 392pp., with a long list of errata on verso of A4, including an additional erratum on a pasted-on slip, bound in a fine contemporary crimson morocco, fully gilt including inner dentelles and edges, spine ornately gilt in the compartments with sunbursts, leaf sprays, coronets and other devices, marbled endpapers. A magnificent copy, perhaps bound for presentation. With the 19th century armorial bookplate of Thomas Byron (1772-1845), the rich landowner, property magnate and sometime M.P. for Hertford. Also with the earlier ownership inscription on flyleaf of H. Purlewent Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Oxford and thereafter Rector of Brampton in Northamptonshire, who died in 1807. This is a particularly influential analysis of the enormous quantity of evidence produced in the famous society legal case of Hamilton v Douglas - the so-called Douglas cause which turned on the legitimacy and true parentage of Archibald Douglas (1748-1827) and his claim, launched in 1761, to the extensive Douglas estates. The case itself lasted some seven years, being finally resolved in Douglas's favour by the House of Lords in early 1769. Robert Richardson (1732-1781), Prebendary of Lincoln Cathedral and Chaplain-in-ordinary to the King, was for some years also chaplain to Sir Joseph Yorke in the Hague. It was apparently there that he undertook his Hamilton/Douglas research. His findings were put into the hands of counsel, his views coinciding with those of the House of Lords. Referring to "this quarrel", his view was that the argument put forward by the Hamilton camp was "unworthy the protection of a man of science ...; their present proof [was] unworthy the credit of a man of experience; and that the speeches in favour of the pursuers ... [were] so full of the most unaccountable mistakes in point of fact, and absurdities in point of argument, that they are unworthy the attention of any person in the world".

        Avis du Parlement de Dauphiné sur la libre circulation des Grains et la réduction naturelle des prix dans les annees de cherté. Adresse au Roi le 26 avril 1769.

      1769 - In-8 de 147-(1) pp., dos lisse orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale. Une des rares premières éditions qui contient la longue note en bas de page (p.122-124) dans laquelle l'auteur défend ses positions après l'avis du parlement de Paris de le faire supprimer : « l'Avis fut rendu public. L'impression produite pouvait être si forte que le Parlement de Paris s'arrangea pour faire disparaitre la brochure (.) Le manifeste du Parlement de Dauphiné n'en émut pas moins l'opinion , et son succès rejaillit sur le parti tout entier » (Weulersse). « Cet ouvrage est devenu bientôt excessivement rare, parce que le systême qu'on propose à Sa Majesté est totalement opposé à ce que les Parlements de Paris et de Rouen ont écrit sur cette matière, et que cette première Compagnie n'a pas trouvé bon qu'on répandit sous ses yeux un écrit si contraire à sa facon de penser » (Bachaumont). Lors du grand débat sur la libre circulation des grains et la suppression des prix fixes et grâce aux nouvelles lumières économiques que les physiocrates commençaient à répandre, la nécessité d'adopter un régime plus libéral devint urgente ; les parlements de province donnérent leur avis : « Celui de Dauphiné donnait solennellement, le 26 avril 1769, un Avis qui était une exposition magistrale de la doctrine physiocratique, d'une orthodoxie impeccable. Dupont de Nemours annoncait, dans Les Ephémérides du Citoyen (1769, tome VII), comme « un ouvrage excellent à tous égards, que nos derniers neveux baigneront encore des larmes de leur reconnaissance comme nous l'avons fait nous même en le lisant ». (Weulersse). 1 tableau dépliant : Prix des Grains Froments, Réduits au septier de Paris, dans les quatre principaux marchés du Dauphiné.
