        La Guida de'Forestieri, curiori di vedere e di riconscere le cose

      1769. NAPLES. La Guida de'Forestieri, curiosi di vedere, e di riconoscere le cose più memorabili di Pozzuoli , Baja, Cuma, Miseno, Gaeta, ed altri Luoghi circonvicini. Bilingual text in Italian and French. By Pompeo Sarnelli. [12], 312, [12] pp. Illustrated with 20 full-page engraved plates and two larger folding engraved plates, one being the engraved map of the Bay of Naples inserted at the end. 12mo., 154 x 90 mm, bound in contemporary Italian full vellum. In Napoli: Saviero Rossi, 1769. |~||~||~||~| Fourth Edition of this rare traveler's guide to the Bay of Naples region, written in Italian and French. The town of Pozzuoli is located five miles to the southwest of Naples. Pozzuoli began as a Greek colony and was later settled by the Romans in 194 BC. Its name derives from the sulfur smell issuing from the volcanic caldera, the Campi Flegrei. Sarnelli's guide also covers the towns and ancient Roman sites around Cumae, Miseno, Bacoli, and Gaeta. The French translator, Antonio Bulisone, adds a section on the thermal spas on the volcanic island of Ischia and the medicinal cures they offered. Pompeo Sarnelli (1649-1724), an Italian writer and bishop of Bisceglie, wrote popular guide books for the Naples region that went through numerous editions. They were written expressly for foreigners visiting the Naples area on the Grand Tour. In his La Guida di Pozzuoli Sarnelli leads one through the major archaeological and ancient Roman architectural sites of the surrounding the Bay of Naples, including: the Temple of Serapis, the Flavian Amphitheater, Lake Averno, Lake Lucrino with the villa of Cicero in Pozzuoli, the Temple of Zeus (home of the Cumaean sibyl), and the many churches, castles and architectural highlights of the smaller villages. Insignificant soiling to vellum binding, else, a fine copy. Cicognara 4269. Fossati-Bellani 3870. Borroni II, 7732-3. Lozzi 3833.

        Manuscript weaving and dyeing manual: F?rbebuch f?r Gottlob Friedrich Rose in Frohburg Anno 1769

      Frohburg, 1769. Manuscript on paper (186 x 160 mm). [47] leaves plus two blanks. Fraktur & cursive script. Illustrated with 11 pages (ff. 41v-46v) of weaving patterns. No visible watermarks. Leaves 2-8 with remains of red wax adhesive. Some soiling and staining. Contemporary half calf (sheep?), the boards covered in very crude comb-marbled paper (worn).***A rare survival: an 18th-century weaver's manuscript recipe book and collection of weaving patterns, containing OVER EIGHTY RECIPES FOR DYES AND TWENTY-ONE WEAVING PATTERNS. The manuscript appears to be in one hand. An addition is dated 1789. The versos of the first six text leaves have small blobs of red wax along the fore-margins, apparently the remains of an adhesive: the text implies that color samples were affixed in those places. The Gottlob Friedrich Rose for whom the recipes and patterns were recorded was presumably an apprentice or offspring of the weaver. Each recipe contains a heading in Fraktur identifying the color and detailed instructions for its preparation, including quantity, in cursive script. The many recipes for shades of grays, greens, blacks and browns give a snapshot view of the street scene on cold, dark winter days; but at least as many reds, greens, blues, violets, yellows, and shades of gold and silver enliven the scene. Gradations of color and varieties of textile bases account for the quantity of different recipes: thus scarlet-red differs from red-scarlet, madder-red (Krapp-roth), carmine-red, English madder-red, red on linen, rose-red, and rose-red on wool. Gold-yellow, olive-green, English-black, flesh-color (Leib-Farb), wood-blue, violet-brown…together these colors evoke a pre-industrial world of local self-sufficiency. The weaving patterns, with names of popular weaves like "Everlastin" [sic], are for looms with different numbers of shafts (vier-schäftige, sechs-schäftige, zehn- schäftige, etc.). Frohburg is a small town located midway between Leipzig and Chemnitz. Before industrialization weaving was its most important local industry. Architectural evidence of the craft subsists today in a few traditional artisans' houses, in which the ground floor contains the workshop or weaving room and the upper floor the living and sleeping areas (cf. Gestaltungssatzung Frohburg. Örtliche Bauvorsschrift der Stadt Frohburg, Frohburg 2000).

        Concilios

      1769. MEXICAN IMPRINT. Concilios Provinciales Primero, Segundo, celebrados en la muy noble, y muy leal ciudad de Mexico. Edited by Francisco Lorenzana. [10], 396, [12] pp. Folio, 272 x 194 mm, bound in full contemporary Spanish vellum, title hand-written in brown ink on spine. Mexico: Hogal, 1769.First Edition. Sabin states: "The first Council was originally printed in 1556, at Mexico, by Juan Pablos. This collection of Mexican Councils is of importance as containing those of 1535 and 1565, nowhere else to be found." In addition to the Councils is a section that gives the biographical particulars of the Mexican bishops, see by see, as well as four 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 according to Sabin, is also found in the "great collections" of Spanish Church Councils. A beautifully printed volume, with attractive and elaborate tailpieces, from the press of one of Mexico's greatest printer. This copy with excised bottom portion of title-page, presumably to conceal an owner's name; overall, a fine copy. Palau 142387. Sabin 42063/4.

        Diverse Maniere d'adornare i Cammini

      1769. PIRANESI, Giovanni Battista. Diverse maniere d'adornare i cammini ed ogni altra parte degli edifizi desunte dall'architettura egizia, etrusca, e greca. Con un ragionamento apologetico in difesa dell'architettura egizia, e toscana. [4], 30, [2], 31-35, [3] pp. Illustrated with 77 engraved plates (including caption plates) of which eight are paired on four leaves (Focillon 862, 878, 919, 923) and three are printed in the text (Focillon 855-856, 860), all by Piranesi. Folio, 536 x 398 mm, bound in later Italian half calf over marbled boards, spine gilt ("Tom. IV"). Roma: Salamoni, 1769. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a crisp, clean copy with early watermarks (Robison "Piranesi" no. 37 = "1760-early 1770s") of Piranesi's hugely influential documentary work on designs for chimneys and furniture. The text appears in Italian, French, and English; it contributed simultaneously to the Greek Revival style, the Etruscan Style, and the Egyptian Revival throughout Europe. Well over 100 separate items of furniture and decorative design are illustrated: in addition to the 61 chimney-piece designs there are six commodes, ten tables, three tripod stands, four chairs, two pairs of shutters, two candelabras, two candlestands, 12 candlesticks, three sconces, 23 clocks, 12 vases (or urns), 12 tea or coffee pots, various portions of moldings, and the woodwork of six coaches and 12 sedan chairs. This was to be Piranesi's final polemical and theoretical publication; it was addressed to an international audience of designers and patrons, and proved to be his most influential contribution to the decorative arts. In the lengthy preface Piranesi defends the creative originality of the Etruscans and discusses the ornamental vocabulary of the Egyptians; but his main theme was the need for creative license in order to fashion a modern style based on a broadly eclectic study of all forms of antiquity. PROVENANCE: Edmond L. Lincoln with his ex-libris. Focillon, nos. 854-926. Exploring Rome: Piranesi and his Contemporaries, pp. 115-118. Wilton- Ely, Piranesi: The Complete Etchings F1. Susan M. Dixon, "Giovanni Battista Piranesi's Diverse maniere d'adornare i cammini and Chimneypiece Design as a Vehicle for Polemic," in Studies in the Decorative Arts (Fall 1993), I:1.

        Delle Basiliche antiche e specialmente di quella di Vincenza

      1769. [PALLADIO]. ARNALDI, Enea. Delle Basiliche antiche e specialmente di quella di Vincenza del celebre Andrea Palladio. viii, cxxxv pp. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Palladio, plus eight engraved folding plates. Small 4to., 240 x 165 mm, bound in nineteenth-century green half morocco over orange marbled boards. Vicenza: Francesco Vendramini Mosca, 1769. |~||~||~||~||~| Second Edition, a larger, more deluxe printing than the first edition published two years earlier in Venice. A nice, fresh copy of this beautifully printed treatise on the Basilica Palladiana. This building was the first major work by Palladio, begun by him in 1579 and completed in 1617 after Palladio's death. Of all the structures in Vicenza that are attributed to Palladio, perhaps his most famous is the Palazzo della Regione, a.k.a. "the Basilica," a civic building that dominates the Piazza dei Signori in the heart of town. Palladio remodeled Vicenza's Basilica, or town hall, by buttressing the old structure with a double loggia, a solution Palladio observed in the exterior of the Venetian Library by Sansovino. Palladio also made several trips to Rome to study ancient architecture, borrowing concepts for his own works in Vincenza and in the Veneto. Count Enea Arnaldi (1716-1794), architect and art historian, was responsible for the restoration of Palladio's Basilica in Vicenza. Arnaldi was also the architect of the Vicentine Hippodrome or Cavallerizza (turf for horse races) in 1779. Arnaldi's two most celebrated publications focus on a Palladio architectural masterpieces in Vicenza: the Delle Basiliche antiche describes and illustrates Palladio's Basilica and the Idea di un Teatro provides a fascinating insight into eighteenth-century debates regarding theatre architectural design, with particular emphasis on Palladio's Teatro Olimpico of Vicenza. A crisp, fine copy. PROVENANCE: Marchese Giuseppe Arconati Visconti (1797-1883) with his crowned oval stamp at foot of title-page. Visconti was the owner of the famed Lombardian villa Castelazzo, designed by the Italian architect Giovanni Ruggeri and possessing the largest and most elaborate landscape gardens in Lombardy. (See: Egisto Bragaglia, Gli ex libris italiani 1835). Fowler 30. Schlosser-Magnino 568. Cicognara 876.

        Les Sultanes Nocturnes, et Ambulantes de la Ville de Paris, contre les Réverberes. [Paris]: “A la Petite Vertu,” 1768. [With:] Les Ambulantes a la brune, contre la dureté du temps

      ?"A la Chine?" 1769. Sultanes: 8vo (215 x 138). 16 pp. Woodcut title ornament and headpiece, the latter signed ?"Huault.?" Title and last page soiled and a bit stained, dampstaining in gutters, last leaf with a few internal tears. Untrimmed, disbound. Ambulantes: 8vo (191 x 120 mm). 16 pp. Woodcut title ornament, type-ornament headpiece. Slight overall discoloration. 19th-century quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt lettered, marbled endpapers, matching marbled edges. Provenance: armorial bookplate of Albert de la Fizilière (1819-1878), bibliographer of Baudelaire and prolific littérateur; P. R. Méry, 20th-century bookplate.*** first edition of a satirical verse plea by the prostitutes of Paris for the abolishment of recently installed municipal reflector street lamps (or reverbères), along with a second edition with widely variant text, usually misdescribed as a reprint, published the following year. While both versions of the poem were written tongue-in-cheek, the pamphlets allude to serious issues posed by the repression of prostitution. For decades Paris had made do with a makeshift patchwork of dim public lamps and private lanterns for the often dangerous nocturnal hours. In 1745 the Académie des Sciences offered a prize for the best design of a new street lamp; it was granted to the mechanic and inventor Dominique-François Bourgeois, who was subsequently charged with improving the lighting in Paris. Bourgeois's réverbère or reflector light embodied the two most important improvements in lighting technology of the 18th century: "It used an oil lantern with several wicks, not just one, instead of a candle, and the light thus gained was further intensified by means of two reflectors" (W. Schivelbusch, Disenchanted night: The industrialization of light in the nineteenth century, 1988, p. 93). The installation of Bourgeois?'s new street lamps provoked a brief flurry of satirical pamphlets containing protests by pickpockets, scoundrels, and prostitutes against the new difficulty of their working conditions. In the Sultanes / Ambulantes, the prostitutes appeal to their patroness Cythérée (Aphrodite) to save them from banishment from the places where her presence is worshipped. Decrying ?"these impertinent lamps [which] send Love into the gutters,?" the ?"troupe,?" members of the Third Estate and thus unprotected by the privileges of ?"les grands... whom one dare not bite?" [Sultanes p. 10], protest against police harassment, an old obstacle to their trade which was of course facilitated by the new lighting. Prosecution of female prostitution was not a joke: arrested prostitutes were sent to the Hôpital General in Paris, where ?"five or six hundred women were generally housed.... Women with venereal disease were most often sent either to the Salpêtrière or Bicêtre, each frequently holding as many as three hundred inmates. Overcrowding, understaffing, and ignorance led to further infections and indignities ... or death.... These grim prisons and their cures were greatly feared, giving police spies, pimps, and brothel-keepers enormous power over the women who lived in terror of being turned in?" (L. Loft, Passion, Politics, and Philosophie: Rediscovering J.-P. Brissot, 2002, p. 42). Invidious comparisons are made by the anonymous pamphleteer between honest street-walkers, or Demoiselles du monde, who are what they seem, and pampered courtesans and allegedly decent women, the fausses Prudes (Ambulantes, p. 8) who display their chastity in public while carrying on quite differently in private. In the Sultanes a long appeal (pp. 12-16) by the prostitutes is made directly to a certain powerful Magistrate [the Lieutenant General of Police Antoine Sartine], ?"who rules this immense City, Paris, storehouse of abundance, where our sex is more agreeable than in any other part of France...?" (p. 12), to direct his attention elsewhere, for example at thieves (filoux) ?"more deserving of your anger than a timid Demoiselle,?" and to grant the prostitutes free access to the small streets flanking the ?"ramparts,?" [the Boulevard du Temple, which was built on top of old earthworks], where they propose, punningly, to erect a Temple of Memory in honor of ?"mainte heroïne: Zaire, Fatime, Justine, et Flore?" (p. 14: famous members of their ?"guild?"?). Objecting to the current situation, in which [Jean-Baptiste] Nicolet, the actor and powerful popular theater director is allowed to perform on the Boulevard from ten to midnight, while streetwalkers are ejected, they ask to be permitted to remain at work until midnight without harassment by the Garde (night watch). These watchmen are however requested to intervene in case of quarrels with clients, to protect the women from physical injury. The poem (in both editions) concludes with an amusing request for a ?"permission tacite,?" explicitly compared to those unofficial permissions granted to authors to print their books. In the Ambulantes à La Brune, the direct request to the magistrate is reduced to a generalized appeal to the goddess. The text of Les Ambulantes indeed eliminates several veiled allusions to well-known personnages that appear in the Sultanes, but many naughty innuendos remain, sometimes with new twists, whereas some changes scarcely affect the meaning (e.g., in a passage decrying the meek and submissive cupid currently reigning, ?"C?'est un amour de cabinet / Dont la terreur est bien terrestre?" [Sultanes, p. 6], becomes ?"C?'est un Amour colifichet / Dont le grand coeur est bien terrestre?" [Ambulantes, p. 9]). The two texts differ in so many passages (including the first 54 lines of the Ambulantes, which are new) that it is not clear whether the Ambulantes provides an example of censorship, of plagiarism, or simply of rewriting. The question merits further study. A third edition appeared in 1769 under the title Les Sultanes Nocturnes et Ambulantes contre Nosseigneurs les Reverbères; it incorporates further changes, combining passages from both the previous versions (both the 1769 editions were reprinted by Edouard Fournier in Les lanternes; histoire de l'ancien éclairage de Paris [1854], pp. 53-64). In the end, the pickpockets and prostitutes were able to continue plying their trades, in spite of periodic police crackdowns: instead of keeping the old lanterns, which numbered between 6000 and 8000, the Paris authorities did away with them entirely, replacing them with only 1200 réverbères, and increasing the distance between these new lamps from 20 to 60 meters (cf. Schivelbusch. p. 95), thus leaving plentiful islands of dark for the operations of the Parisian underworld. OCLC lists copies of the Sultanes at the BnF, the British Library, and Stanford Univ. (misdating to 1767), and 4 US holdings of the Ambulantes (Loyola, Louisiana State, McGill, and Rutgers). Gay III:1158 & I:90.

Back to nerves decorated with nets. Piece blue morocco title and volume number of brown morocco. Scuffs in caps tail of six volumes. Some gaps on the dishes, due to galleries and to the last nerve of Volume I. Border lower flat bare half a cm. Good copy, however, very fresh. The History of England is undoubtedly the most popular work and was a great success of the philosopher David Hume, the father of philosophical empiricism and its importance in the history of philosophy is the measure of Descartes France. The story could not but interest the philosopher effect since it is an unparalleled amount of experience, as such, it is a must for those seeking knowledge; the historian is an empiricist, since can not simply perceive the causal links between facts and events, it is constrained in its vision to design a movement. However, for Hume, there is no way to conceptualize the history and structure typically follows the chronology of events, it is a story provided detailed and England, which extends from the arrival of the Romans in Revolution of 1688; it is divided into three historic and dynastic period: the house of Plantagenet, the Stuarts and the Tudors.

      - 3 ouvrages reliés en 2 volumes in-8, plein veau havane marbré, dos lisses ornés de caissons fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièce de titre de maroquin bordeaux, tranches rouges (rel. de l'époque). 1- Edition originale de premier tirage avec le feuillet d'errata, de cet ouvrage composé en français par Galiani, revu et publié par Diderot, l’un des ouvrages majeurs dans l’histoire de l’économie politique au XVIIIe siècle. Hutchinson ('Before Adam Smith') souligne l'importance et les aspects novateurs de ce livre, en particulier du point de vue méthodologique, par les relations qu'il établit entre théorie et politique économique ainsi que par la place qu'il accorde à la dimension historico-institutionnelle. L’implication de Diderot dans les corrections et révisions du texte a été largement réévaluée (cf. Hervé Hasquin, in ‘Diderot et son temps’, nº181). (Adams, 'Diderot', DE1. Einaudi, 2234. Kress, 6750. Weulersse, 'Physiocratie', I, p. XXVI). 2- Edition originale. Réfutation point par point, par Morellet, de l'ouvrage de Galiani, du point de vue de l’orthodoxie physiocratique. Face à l’éclatante démonstration du livre de Galiani et à l’enthousiasme qu’il souleva dans les salons parisiens et parmi les Encyclopédistes, cette ‘Réfutation’ de Morellet, trop technique et trop austère, ne remporta pas le succès escompté. (Einaudi, 4026. Goldsmiths, 10642. Higgs, 4942. INED, 3314. Kress, S.4633). 3- Edition originale de librairie de cet écrit physiocratique attribué à Bigot de Sainte-Croix par Dupont de Nemours, comportant une longue note de bas de page (p.122-124) dans laquelle l’auteur se défend après la demande d’interdiction de sa brochure par le parlement de Paris. Emanent d’un parlement, ce vibrant plaidoyer, en faveur de la liberté de circulation et de commerce des grains fit grand bruit. Dupont de Nemours qui l’avait d’abord publié dans ses ‘Ephémérides du citoyen’ (T. 17, 1769, p. 109 sq) le qualifiait "d’exposition magistrale de la doctrine physiocratique, d'une orthodoxie impeccable" et selon Bachaumont (‘Mémoires secrets’, vol. 19, 1783, p. 171): "cet ouvrage est devenu bientôt excessivement rare, parce que le système 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 répandît sous ses yeux un écrit si contraire à sa façon de penser". (Einaudi, I, 2247. Goldsmiths'-Kress, n° 09978. Higgs 4642. Weulersse, ‘Mouvement physiocratique 1756 – 1770, p. 200). Très bel exemplaire, très frais, parfaitement relié à l’époque.

Knox arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with his regiment in 1757 to take part in the anticipated expedition against Louisbourg, although the attack was postponed and the regiment did not see action in the siege. They did take part in the battle of the Plains of Abraham, served under James Murray at Quebec in the winter of 1759-60, and participated in the capitulation of Montreal in 1760. Knox gives a first-hand account of the battles, and supplements his narrative with printings of important official documents and orders from both the British and the French.

        Constitutio criminalis Theresiana oder der Römisch=Kaiserl. zu Hungarn und Böheim etc. etc. Königl. Apost. Majestät Mariä Theresiä Erzherzogin zu Oesterreich, etc. etc. peinliche Gerichtsordnung. angebunden: Instruction zur Theresianisch-peinlichen Gerichtsordnung, für alle Teutsch- erbländische Hals- und Landgerichten, und überhaupt für alle Criminal-Richtere

      Wien, Trattner, 1769.. 33 x 22cm, spät. Halblederband, etwas fleckig, beschabt, Rücken oben und unten mit Fehlstellen, Ex-Libris auf. vord. Innendeckel; 8 Bl., 282 S., LVI S. Beilagen incl. 30 z.T. ganzseitigen Kupfer, davon 3 doppelblattgroße gefaltet; 20 S.. seltene und gleichzeitig einzige deutsche Ausgabe. Die Theresiana gilt als bedeutendes Dokument der europäischen Rechtsgeschichte, mit dem das Strafrecht für Österreich, die deutschen Erbländer und Böhmen vereinheitlicht wurde. Während in Preußen bereits im Jahre 1740 die Folter abgeschafft worden war, hielt die Theresiana noch an ihr fest. Erst am 2. Januar 1776 erfolgte die Aufhebung der Tortur durch Entschließung Maria Theresias. Im Jahre 1787 wurde die Theresiana durch die sogenannte Josephina - ein von Joseph II. erlassenes Strafrecht für die Erbländer der Habsburger - außer Kraft gesetzt. Der "Erste Theil" handelt "Von der peinlichen Verfahrung", der "Anderte Theil" betrifft die "halsgerichtsmäßigen Verbrechen insonderheit, und deren Straffen". Es folgen die "Beylagen"; diese enthalten das Formular, auf dem die Behördern vierteljährlich dem Obergericht Mitteilung machen müssen, dann die Vorschriften für die genaue Klärung der Todesursachen eines Opfers durch einen Wundarzt. In Numerus III und IV mit dem Titel "Abschilder- und Beschreibung der Peinigungsarten, wie selbe in der königl. böhmischen Hauptstadt Prag bey den daselbigen Stadt-Magistraten vorgenommen werden" bzw. "Abschilder- und Erklärung der Peinigungsarten, wie selbe in der kaiserl. königl. Residenzstadt Wienn (!) bey dem kaiserl. königl. Stadt- und Landgericht vorgenommen zu werden pflegen", finden sich die berüchtigten Tafeln, auf denen Foltermethoden detailliert dargestellt werden: Anlegung von Daumenschrauben, Einschnürung von Gliedmaßen, Folterleiter, Fußeisen, Aufzugsmaschine, Spanischer Stiefel (auch Wiener Schuh genannt). In Numerus V, betitelt "Formularien", wird der sadistische Charakter der Constitutio besonders deutlich, wenn dort bürokratisch penibel festgesetzt wird, wie je nach Verbrechen die Todesstrafe noch verschärft wird durch z.B. "Viertheilen ohne und mit Verschärffung" (hierbei wird dem Verurteilten "sein lebendiges Herz herausgenommen (und) um das Maul geschlagen"). - Dieses Exemplar enthält einen der beiden fast immer fehlenden geheimen Anhänge ("Instruction...."). In diesen Erläuterungen zu Artikeln des ersten Teils wird z.B. bestimmt, dass die Leichname von Delinquenten vorzeitig vom Galgen oder Rad abgenommen werden sollen, wenn z.B. bei großer Hitze die Verwesung die öffentlich Gesundheit gefährden können, oder wie der genaue Ablauf der Tortur ist und wann der Richter welchen Grad der Tortur anordnen soll. In Num. 9 heißt es dann abschließend, "... daß sich Niemand bey ansonst zu gewarten habend empfindlichster Bestraffung anmassen solle, diese lediglich zum geheimen Unterricht der Criminal-Richteren abgesehene Instruction nachdrucken zu lassen..."

      Nürnberg, Peter Conrad Monath, 1769.. - Vorgebunden: (Caraccioli, Louis-Antoine de). Praktische Landökonomie der Alten. Nebst einem Entwurfe derselben zum Besten des gemeinen Wesens wieder aufzuhelfen. 12 Bl., 164 S., 2 Bl. (d. l. w.). Augsburg, Matthäus Rieger und Söhne, 1770.. I. Letzte Orignial-Ausgabe der von Spener beeinflussten Gesellschaftsutopie, zuerst 1723 unter dem Pseudonym "Wahrenberg" und dann wieder 1732 und 1737 erschienen. Sinold von Schütz kritisiert auch die spanische Eroberungs- und Kolonialpolitik, aus der Zerfallserscheinungen und Perversionen der christlichen Kirche resultieren. Auch die erstarrte lutherische Orthodoxie sowie der lasterhafte Adel in Europa werden kritisiert. Diesen Zuständen wird ein pietistisches, bürgerliches Gemeinwesen entgegengestellt. "This republic, which seems to be an imitation of Andrea's 'Christenburg', is governed by a communistic royalism exercising strict control over all things. Primitive and patriarchal conditions are praised: for example barter trade without the exchange of money, of which very little is in circulation" (Faber du Faur). Biesterfeld führt diesen Roman in seinem 'Verzeichnis der wichtigsten Utopien des 18. Jahrhunderts' auf. "Von ihren kritischen Ansätzen her kann die Utopie Sinolds z. T. als deutsches Gegenstück zu den libertinistischen Utopien in Frankreich seit Foigny gesehen werden" (Winter 142 zur EA). - Papierbedingt gebräunt, teils stockfleckig. Altes ungarisches Bibliotheksexlibris im Innendeckel. Gutes Exemplar. - Faber du Faur 1638. Vgl. Hayn/G. II 234. - II. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. Trotz des ein landwirtschaftliches Thema suggerierenden Titels ein thematisch zur beigebundenen Staatsutopie passendes Werk. Geschildert wird das Bild einer Gesellschaft, die auf Ordnung und Effizienz basiert. Die französische Originalausgabe erschien im Vorjahr in Paris. Im deutschen Antiquariatshandel wurde die Autorschaft von Louis-Antoine C. angezweifelt und Domenico C. (1715-1789) vorgeschlagen, der in Verbindung mit den Enzyklopädisten stand und deren Ideen umzusetzen versuchte, als er 1781 das Vizekönigtum Sizilien übernahm. Dem steht entgegen, dass der französische Verbundkatalog ABES für das Buch - auch diese Übersetzung - Louis-Antoine nennt und 'Domenico' ausdrücklich als Fehlzuordnung bezeichnet. Weiter bürgt der Verleger für den katholischen Vielschreiber als Autor: die Übersetzungsfabrik Riegers in Augsburg war das Zentrum der gegenaufklärerischen Propaganda und weite Teile des Buches haben mit 'Aufklärung' und den Idealen der Enzyklopädisten rein gar nichts zu tun. So wird vorgeschlagen, jeden Menschen durch bestimmte Kleidungsmerkmale einem Stand zuzuordnen und danach die Privilegien oder deren Gegenteil zu verteilen. Schließlich schlägt er vor, unbeliebte und gefährliche Arbeiten von Leuten, "die die Todesstrafe verdient haben, und auf diese Weise nützlich würden" ausführen zu lassen. "Die Unkosten [bei Gold- und Silbergruben] würden den Gewinn nicht übersteigen, wenn man [diese] Leute dazu gebrauchte, wodurch das Land nicht entvölkert, und die schlechteste Nahrung ihnen noch gut genug seyn würde" (S. 161). - Im Satzspiegel gebräunt, teils Textabklatsch. - Vgl. Hoefer VIII 653 und Cioranescu 15494 (frz. Ausg.). Nicht bei Fromm.

      . 3 ouvrages relies en 2 volumes in-8, plein veau havane marbre, dos lisses ornes de caissons fleuronnes et cloisonnes, piece de titre de maroquin bordeaux, tranches rouges (rel. de l'epoque). 1- Edition originale de premier tirage avec le feuillet d'errata, de cet ouvrage compose en francais par Galiani, revu et publie par Diderot, l'un des ouvrages majeurs dans l'histoire de l'economie politique au XVIIIe siecle. Hutchinson ('Before Adam Smith') souligne l'importance et les aspects novateurs de ce livre, en particulier du point de vue methodologique, par les relations qu'il etablit entre theorie et politique economique ainsi que par la place qu'il accorde a la dimension historico-institutionnelle. L'implication de Diderot dans les corrections et revisions du texte a ete largement reevaluee (cf. Herve Hasquin, in 'Diderot et son temps', n°181). (Adams, 'Diderot', DE1. Einaudi, 2234. Kress, 6750. Weulersse, 'Physiocratie', I, p. XXVI). 2- Edition originale. Refutation point par point, par Morellet, de l'ouvrage de Galiani, du point de vue de l'orthodoxie physiocratique. Face a l'eclatante demonstration du livre de Galiani et a l'enthousiasme qu'il souleva dans les salons parisiens et parmi les Encyclopedistes, cette 'Refutation' de Morellet, trop technique et trop austere, ne remporta pas le succes escompte. (Einaudi, 4026. Goldsmiths, 10642. Higgs, 4942. INED, 3314. Kress, S.4633). 3- Edition originale de librairie de cet ecrit physiocratique attribue a Bigot de Sainte-Croix par Dupont de Nemours, comportant une longue note de bas de page (p.122-124) dans laquelle l'auteur se defend apres la demande d'interdiction de sa brochure par le parlement de Paris. Emanent d'un parlement, ce vibrant plaidoyer, en faveur de la liberte de circulation et de commerce des grains fit grand bruit. Dupont de Nemours qui l'avait d'abord publie dans ses 'Ephemerides du citoyen' (T. 17, 1769, p. 109 sq) le qualifiait "d'exposition magistrale de la doctrine physiocratique, d'une orthodoxie impeccable" et selon Bachaumont ('Memoires secrets', vol. 19, 1783, p. 171): "cet ouvrage est devenu bientot excessivement rare, parce que le systeme qu'on propose a Sa Majeste est totalement oppose a ce que les Parlements de Paris et de Rouen ont ecrit sur cette matiere, et que cette premiere Compagnie n'a pas trouve bon qu'on repandit sous ses yeux un ecrit si contraire a sa facon de penser". (Einaudi, I, 2247. Goldsmiths'-Kress, n° 09978. Higgs 4642. Weulersse, 'Mouvement physiocratique 1756 - 1770, p. 200). Tres bel exemplaire, tres frais, parfaitement relie a l'epoque..

        Contemporary Extract of the Litigation Regarding the Demesne and Dam of Vödröc. (György Apponyi as Claimant, Wolfgang von Kempelen and Sámuel Klobusiczky as Respondents at the Bratislava Municipal Court and Later at Tárnok.)

      - 10 leaves of contemporary manuscript. The lawsuit started in 1769 because of the dam that was built for millers by Kempelen on his property in 1763. The lack of water and the drought in 1768 caused damages on György Apponyi's property who accused Kempelen and Klobusiczky and claimed for 5000 Forint as compensation. Both courts adjudged to Apponyi. The suit was closed on August 26, 1775. Wolfgang von Kempelen (Johann Wolfgang Ritter von Kempelen de Pázmánd, 1734-1804) was a Hungarian inventor and polymath of Irish ancestry. After his studies in law and philosophy he started to work as a clerk in Vienna. He translated Maria Theresa's Pragmatica Sanctio into German. He became the attorney of the Royal Court in Bánát (today part of Romania). Opened the first Hungarian pawnshop. Spoke eight languages, worked as an architect and engineer. As an artist he was a painter and engraver, poet and author of several theater plays. He was member of the Academy of Art in Vienna. Constructed steam-engines, water pumps, pontoon bridge at Bratislava, a steam-turbine for mills, a typewriter for blinds, a theater house in Buda, and the fountains at Schönbrunn Vienna. He was most famous for his construction of The Turk, a chess-playing automaton. He also created a manually operated speaking machine which was a genuine pioneering step in experimental phonetics. He published a book about his invention "Mechanismus der menschlichen Sprache nebst der Beschreibung seiner sprechender Maschine" in 1791.
