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

      Marc-Michel Rey 1770 - 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.

        Analytischer Versuch über die Seelenkräfte. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt und mit einigen Zusätzen vermehrt von M. Christian Gottfried Schütz. Erster und Zweyter Band. Charles Bonnet (1720 – 1793), als Naturwissenschaftler Erstbeschreiber der Pathenogenese und sehr früher Vertreter der Evolutionstheorie, distanzierte sich angewidert von J. K. Lavater, als dieser eine von Bonnets Schriften benutzte, um Moses Mendelsohn zum Übertritt ins Christentum zu bewegen. Bonnets Philosophie war ein Empirismus: Alle Vorstellungen leitete er – in seinem „Versuch über die Seelenkräfte" - von Sinnesempfindungen ab, die in der Seele durch Oszillation der „Gehirnfibern" entstünden. – Da die immaterielle Seele ohne Verbindung mit einer organischen Substanz

        DIALOGUES SUR LE COMMERCE DES BLEDS

      Londres [but Paris]: [Merlin], 1770. FIRST EDITION. 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.. 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.

        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. 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.

Dorn e datata 1771-75. Si tratta probabilmente di una copia di misura molto ridotta tratta dalla nostra, probabilmente inserita in un'opera veneziana sulla guerra russo-turca del 1768-1774, che costituì l'inizio dei un tentativo di espansione russa nella penisola balcanica a scapito del regno ottomano. La carta sembra stranamente repertoriata solo nel museo della città polacca di Oppeln, anche se quasi sicuramente, sebbene sia essa molto rara, esisteranno copie del libro, a noi sconosciuto, in biblioteche italiane. Molto ben conservata. Tracce di stampa di inchiostro in controparte. Manca a Zacharakis "A catalogue of printed maps of Greece 1477-1800. Third edition"

        Dialogues Sur Le Commerce Des Bleds

      Londres [Paris, Merlin] 1770 - Octavo. [4], 314, [1] p. Quarter leather over marbled boards. Raised bands, brown leather spine label, marbled endpapers. Rubbing, library labels to spine. Institutional stamps on title pages. Notation to first blank, marginalia in colored pencil. Last 4 pages have chipping at top margin, does not affect text. First edition of a controversial critique of the 1764 French royal edict liberalizing grain exports, arguing against the free trade policy advocated by the Physiocrats. Ferdinando Galiani was an Italian economist, a leading Italian figure of the Enlightenment. His economic reputation was made by Dialogues sur le commerce des bles, "Dialogues on the commerce in wheat". This work, by its light and pleasing style, and its vivacious wit, delighted Voltaire, who described it as a cross between Plato and Moliere. The author, says Giuseppe Pecchio, treated his arid subject as Fontenelle did the vortices of Descartes, or Algarotti the Newtonian system of the world. The question at issue was that of the freedom of the corn trade, then much agitated, and, in particular, the policy of the royal edict of 1764, which permitted the exportation of grain so long as the price had not arrived at a certain height. The general principle he maintains is that the best system in regard to this trade is to have no system - countries of different circumstances requiring, according to him, different modes of treatment. He fell, however, into some of the most serious errors of the mercantilists - holding, as indeed did also Voltaire and even Pietro Verri, that one country cannot gain without another losing, and in his earlier treatise going so far as to defend the action of governments in debasing the currency.

        Persicaria Nientales Nicotianae Folio [Eastern Arsesmart with a Tobacco Leaf]

      [London 1770 - Hand-coloured engraving. Very good condition. A beautifully designed image from Edwards "British Herbal", a superb and rare work in which Edwards sought the essence of his subjects, producing graceful flower portraits. Edwards lived in London until about 1778, at which time he moved to Surrey, and exhibited at both the Society of Artists, of which he was a member, and the Royal Academy. In addition to the fine arts, he also provided designs for textiles, particularly cotton calico. Between 1769 and 1770 he published Edwards British Herbal in monthly parts, with text garnered from the works of contemporary botanists and 100 fine hand-coloured engraved plates from his own designs. The plates show that his interests lay not so much in the accurate depiction of botanical specimens as the design possibilities of beautiful flowers. Cf. Dunthorne 105; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p 93; cf. Henrey III 673; cf. Nissen BBI 579; cf. Oak Spring Flora p 64.

The image shows the crowned Virgin on a pedestal with a dagger piercing her breast (a reference to the prophecy of Simeon, Luke 2,35, describing a metaphorical sword piercing Mary's soul), emanating rays and surrounded by 14 winged angels' heads, within a rococo frame; the title is on a cartouche below her feet. The word Attacta (feminine perfect passive participle of attingere) which concludes the title was used, apparently only in the 18th and 19th centuries, to indicate that a devotional image of a pilgrimage icon had touched the holy painting or statue itself and was therefore blessed. In other words, through a magical process, the print itself was openly acknowledged to have become an object of worship, charged with special sanctitude. This astonishing break with Catholic doctrine is especially ironic in the present context: The pilgrimage to the church of Maria Steinbach had originated relatively recently, in 1730, with a rumor that the eyes of a statue of the Virgin within the church were moving, and that its face was flushed as if with weeping. The statue rapidly became the object of a popular pilgrimage, as stories of its miracle-working powers spread. At first church officials in Constance tried to suppress the movement, but, as often in such cases of spontaneous Marian fervor, it was decided that a wiser move would be to accept it by attempting to co-opt it. A commission was formed to take the testimony of witnesses to the miracles under oath, all of which was carefully recorded, and the Bishop of Constance gave his blessing to the new shrine in 1733, demonstrating "the power of the laity over the nature of Catholic devotion" (Forster). A new church, with lavish Rococo decoration, was built on the site, in which scenes of 8 miracles, taken from miracle books of 1738 and 1746, were painted on the ceiling by Franz Georg Hermann. In their presentation these miracles were delicately subsumed into a theological context, the clergy being wary of accusations by Protestants from the surrounding area that they were promoting idolatry. Nonetheless, as always, a parallel practice of religiosity continued, outside the doctrinal boundaries of the Church. People prayed at the shrine, and also continued to practice less orthodox forms of religious "Andacht" (devotion). "The statue was even available outside Steinbach": already, in his testimony to the commission, one witness had stated that "he prayed to a picture of the Gnadenbild in his house" (Forster). The present engraving testifies to the continuation of this practice a full generation later. The yellow tone and application of lacquer or varnish may have been intended to imitate yellow silk: a few devotional engravings from Maria Steinbach printed on silk are known. The woodcutter, engraver, stencil-maker (Patronist) and publisher Franz Xavier Endres or Endress had begun his career as a miniature painter, and was admitted (somewhat controversially) to the ranks of Patronisten, or stencil designers (perhaps also designers of woodcut and engraved images) in 1744. From about 1753 to 1780 he managed a successful business publishing devotional imagery and ephemera, of "illustrated prayer cards, blessings for the house and stable, broadsides, indulgences, and so on" (Gebetszettel, Haus- und Stallsegen, Bilderbogen, Ablassblattern, usw.: Spamer, p. 233).
