         Systeme de la Nature: ou, Des Loix du Monde Physique & du Monde Moral. Par M. Mirabaud [2 Volumes]

      Marc-Michel Rey. Hardcover. Londres [i.e. Amsterdam], 1770. First edition, first issue, with comma after Londres on title page. Half title on first volume only. Contemporary mottled calf, spines gilt, floral decorated spines, gilt spine labels. A beautiful complete set of Holbach's major work in an original binding. Joints dried, some very small cracks to heel of binding on tome 1, small chips to leather at corners, some light scattered foxing to contents. Remains in excellent, near fine condition overall. Holbach published the work under the name of Jean-Baptiste de Mirabaud, the secretary of the Academie Francaise who had died ten years previously. Denying the existence of a deity, and refusing to admit as evidence all a priori arguments, d'Holbach saw in the universe as nothing more than matter in motion, bound by inexorable natural laws of cause and effect. There is, he wrote "no necessity to have recourse to supernatural powers to account for the formation of things." "He was far too dogmatically atheistic for most of the "philosophes" who were 'skeptical' and vacillated between atheism and deism." - PMM 215; Kress 6737, Tchemerzine VI, page 243. . Very Good. 1770. First Edition.

         Il Disertore a new Comic Opera as acted at the King's Theatre in the Hay Market. Written by Mr. BADINI. The Music entirely new, By Signor GUGLIELMI.

      London, printed by T. Baldwin, N. 42, Fleet Street, 1770. (Price one Shilling). In 8vo (cm. 18,2); mezza pelle coeva; sguardie colorate; pp. VIII, 2 nn. a 95, (1). Testo in inglese ed italiano. Con l'elenco degli Interlocutori; Inventore de' Balli il Signor Galeotti; primo Ballo, Divertimenti dell'armata; Secondo Ballo, Feste di Contado; Elenco dei ballerini principali; Pittore macchinista il Signor Bigari. RARISSIMO. La prima data certa nella sua biografia è il 1753: in quell'anno egli si trova certamente a Londra ove partecipa agli intrighi ed alle discussioni che occupano e dividono gli italiani viventi all'ombra dell'"Opera House" o "King's Theatre". Badini, bene introdotto nell'alta società inglese, amico di John Wilkes, il letterato mondano più in voga nella città, riesce a rafforzare in maniera notevole la propria posizione di poeta ufficiale. Nel 1793 è in polemica, sempre per il posto di librettista, con Lorenzo da Ponte, come sempre, l'occasione dello scontro è fornita dalla pubblicazione d'un libro: Il Tributo del Core, una raccolta di poemi del da Ponte sulla morte di Luigi XVI. Tre mesi dopo la pubblicazione del suddetto libro, nello stesso anno 1793, il B. mette in circolazione una sconcia parodia sotto uno pseudonimo: Il Tributo della coglionatura dell'Abate Vittorio Nemesini, Accademico della Crusca e canonico di San Pietro. Dedicato a l'Autore del Tributo del Core, o sia al merito incredibile, non meno che impareggiabile dell'Abate Lorenzo da Ponte. L'attacco è personale, diretto: s'accusa il da Ponte di voler togliere, addirittura rubare, il posto di librettista dell'Opera a "uno che ha servito il Teatro venticinque anni continui, e che nei parti della sua penna si è distinto non solo tra i Poeti italiani, ma anche fra quelli dell'Inghilterra". Da Ponte, che teneva al corrente Giacomo Casanova degli sviluppi della polemica, lo informava della situazione in una lettera del 10 maggio: Badini "è il primo birbante ch'esista sulla terra... Son dieci anni che non sorte di casa che le domeniche per i debiti; da che pubblicò la satira si nasconde affatto perché teme ch'io lo bastoni. Tutti mi dicono che potrei chiamarlo in giudizio... io non mi degno. Tutto questo ci fa per discreditarmi: e perché crede che mi possano alfine dar il posto di poeta". Le cose stavano a questo punto, allorché la direzione del King's Theatre passò a William Taylor, il quale confermò il Badini nel suo impiego di "poeta" del teatro. Da Ponte, per conseguenza, si vide costretto a trovare altrove lavoro trasferendosi ad Amsterdam, dove lo raggiunse, il 30 ott. 1793, una lettera del Taylor, il quale gli offriva il posto di librettista dell'Opera e uno stipendio annuo di 120 ghinee. Accettò senza esitazioni l'offerta e, tornato in Inghilterra, riuscì nel 1795 a far rappresentare la Scuola de' Maritati, rifacimento d'un lavoro composto alcuni anni prima. Il successo fu grande, confessò Da Ponte, "ad onta di... una satira sanguinosa del sempre infame Badini, che a suo dire fu pagato per farla". Questa satira è la Breve Notizia dell'Opera Buffa intitolata La Scuola de' Maritati o sia Delle Corna: scritta dal celebre Lorenzo Da Ponte, il quale dopo di essere stato Ebreo, Cristiano, Sacerdote, e Poeta in Italia e in Germania, si trova Secolare, Maritato, e Asino in Londra. Il libello fu pubblicato anonimo e portava falsamente come luogo d'edizione Lisbona. Fu invece stampato a Londra nel 1795. Il Da Ponte, forte dei recenti successi, questa volta volle rispondere all'impudente con alcune Piacevoli noterelle sopra il Turpe Libello intitolato Breve Notizia dell'Opera Buffa che ha per titolo La Scuola de' Maritati, composto dal sedicente Vittorio Nemesini, cioè da Carlo Francesco. Gli incontri e gli scontri tra i due continuarono ancora per qualche anno ("Il Badini... m'insidia sempre l'impiego") finché ai principi del 1800 lo stesso Da Ponte fu sostituito nell'impiego di poeta da un certo Bonaiuti. Francesco Badini fu il primo a tradurre in italiano i Pensieri di Pascal. Axs

         PROEFNEMINGEN EN MONSTER-BLADEN, OM PAPIER TE MAAKEN

      Amsterdam: Jan Christian Sepp, 1770. This is an extremely rare and highly inventive treatise on papermaking, with original paper samples illustrating the appearance of an array of experimental materials used in the process. Each specimen leaf has a distinct natural color and texture (bleach was not discovered until after the date of publication), and each contains a brief printed description of the material used in its creation. The goal, according to the author, was not to create a high quality product, but rather to showcase and experiment with the bounty of different materials provided by nature. Among the more interesting ingredients used here are wasps' nests, sawdust, moss, cattail, and hemp; several species of trees are also experimented with, including beechwood and the wool of the poplar. Jacob Christian Schäffer (1718-90) had first suggested the possibility of using wood products in papermaking in an ambitious six-volume work published in Regensburg in 1765-71. Dard Hunter, writing about papermaking in 1925, called the present book "the rarest work on the specific subject of paper that has ever been published" and praised the author as an innovator "who did more than any of his predecessors in the quest for papermaking." In discussing this item (of which he had apparently seen only the second part), Hunter notes that it is "almost rarer than the Regensburg edition." We could find only four copies of this work in the auction records, three of which were lacking plates and/or specimens.. 188 x 145 mm. (7 1/2 x 5 3/4"). [iv], 56, [2]; viii, 32 pp. Contemporary half calf over speckled tan paper boards, raised bands, compartments with gilt lettering and flower motifs. With frontispiece printed in blue, 33 leaves of paper specimens, and four hand-colored plates. Front free endpaper with a pencilled ownership inscription. Hunter, "Papermaking Through Eighteen Centuries," pp. 53-68. Significant general wear to the insubstantial original binding, but the book quite firm and still appealing because unrestored. Lower hinge separating, the occasional negligible chip or tear to the specimens (one of the hemp specimens with more noticeable open tears), faint offsetting to the front endpapers (from a laid-in piece of paper), but overall A SURPRISINGLY NICE COPY of a book one would expect to find in terrible shape, the contents very clean and the specimens remarkably well preserved, given the materials involved.This is an extremely rare and highly inventive treatise on papermaking, with original paper samples illustrating the appearance of an array of experimental materials used in the process.

         Matthäus Henry Practische Erklärung der Psalmen Davids

      Weygand, Leipzig 1770 - Octavo. (1) 788, 703, 616pp. Original three quarter calf with gilt tooling, gilt lettering on black label of spine over speckled boards; raised bands. Frontispiece engraving. Vignette on title page. Beautifully historiated head and endpieces and initials. Translated from the author's exposition of the Old and New Testament into German with a lengthy preface by Rambach in each volume: on singing the Psalms of David in the First Temple in volume one, on the certain and reliable fulfillment of the major prophecies of the Old Testament in volume two, and a repudiation of a threefold prejudice against the Songs of David. The prejudices are described as follows: 1) according to the Bible David committed grave sins. e.g. sexual impropriety, which may disturb the heart of the believer even in the most devoted prayer, 2) the mention of the curses in the Psalms are interpreted in such a way, as if David prayed for them to God to destroy his enemies, e.g. revenge, and 3) some obscure the testimonials of Jesus in the Psalms even when they are obviously present. Each psalm is introduced with a summary and interpretations.At the time of this work Rambach was a German Protestant pastor at the Elisabeth Church in Breslau and inspector of the Lutheran Church in the principality of Breslau. He was a prolific writer and translator and is credited and recognized for introducing a number of important works of foreign literature to a German audience as well as for his own works in the area of Biblical theology. Text in German. Light rubbing and scuffing of boards with very light wear along edges of binding. Inked note and library stamp on inside front covers with library pocket and register on inside back cover and free endpaper in first and second volume. Library exlibris in third volume covering inked note on inside front cover. Library pocket and register removed with some paper remnants in volume three. Library stamp on verso of title pages with another stamp on page a 2 and at end of all volumes. Bindings in overall very good-, interior in very good+ condition.

         Matthäus Henry Practische Erklärung der Psalmen Davids

      Leipzig: Weygand, 1770. First edition. Hardcover. vg- to vg+. Octavo. (1) 788, 703, 616pp. Original three quarter calf with gilt tooling, gilt lettering on black label of spine over speckled boards; raised bands. Frontispiece engraving. Vignette on title page. Beautifully historiated head and endpieces and initials. Translated from the author's exposition of the Old and New Testament into German with a lengthy preface by Rambach in each volume: on singing the Psalms of David in the First Temple in volume one, on the certain and reliable fulfillment of the major prophecies of the Old Testament in volume two, and a repudiation of a threefold prejudice against the Songs of David. The prejudices are described as follows: 1) according to the Bible David committed grave sins. e.g. sexual impropriety, which may disturb the heart of the believer even in the most devoted prayer, 2) the mention of the curses in the Psalms are interpreted in such a way, as if David prayed for them to God to destroy his enemies, e.g. revenge, and 3) some obscure the testimonials of Jesus in the Psalms even when they are obviously present. Each psalm is introduced with a summary and interpretations. At the time of this work Rambach was a German Protestant pastor at the Elisabeth Church in Breslau and inspector of the Lutheran Church in the principality of Breslau. He was a prolific writer and translator and is credited and recognized for introducing a number of important works of foreign literature to a German audience as well as for his own works in the area of Biblical theology. Text in German. Light rubbing and scuffing of boards with very light wear along edges of binding. Inked note and library stamp on inside front covers with library pocket and register on inside back cover and free endpaper in first and second volume.

         DIALOGUES SUR LE COMMERCE DES BLEDS

      [Merlin], Londres [but Paris] 1770 - 197 x 125 mm. (7 3/4 x 5"). 2 p.l., 314 pp., [1] leaf (errata). FIRST EDITION. EXCELLENT CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO, GILT, WITH THE PAPAL ARMS OF PIUS VI, covers with frame of cresting floral roll and volutes accented with ciborium ornaments, raised bands, spine panels with central floral sprig, black morocco label, renewed endpapers (with the book consequently opening stiffly). Kress 6730; Goldsmiths 10640. Boards with a few spots of soiling, otherwise an extremely fine copy--the margins especially ample, the text unusually clean, fresh, and bright, and the binding lustrous and scarcely worn. In a handsome binding of papal provenance, this economic essay on the wheat trade is one of the few works in the "dismal science" to be noted for its wit and vivacious style. Voltaire likened it to a cross between Plato and Molière, and Scottish economist John Ramsay McCulloch observed that "perhaps no foreigner ever obtained so perfect a mastery over the delicacies of the French language as Galiani has displayed in" this work. Written in the form of dialogues between two French noblemen, this debate over free market versus mercantilist policies in the French wheat trade was likely of interest to a pope known for his keen financial sense. Pope Pius VI (1717-99) received a doctorate in canon and civil law as Count Giovanni Angelo Braschi before entering the priesthood. Economics was an area of specialization for him: he headed the papal treasury before becoming a cardinal, and was noted for improving Vatican finances during his papacy.
