        An Inquiry into the Principles of Political Oeconomy

      Dublin: James Williams and Richard Moncrieffe, 1770 Three volumes, octavo, contemporary pale Irish calf, contemporary dark red labels lettered and numbered gilt, slight wear to head and tails of volume II, pp. (4) + (8) + iii-xii + (6) + 426 + (2)adverts; (32) + 424; (8) + 431 + folding table of coins + (20), a fine and attractive copy.Kress 6760. Goldsmith 10611. Higgs 4854. Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, pp.241-242. Schumpeter, History of Economic Analysis, p.176.First Dublin edition. The first important English work on political economy. James Steuart (1712-1780) is represented as someone who produced a systematic treatment of economics, but in pre-Physiocratic form. Although his book was first published in 1767, the main elements of the argument were established in isolation in Germany in the late 1750?s. The Principles is dominated by a concern with a socio-economic system in a situation where different national economies have different growth rates. Both perspectives ensured that the book was largely concerned with matters of economic policy, and have given the misleading claim that Steuart was a mercantilist. Steuart was particularly worried about population growth and his views bear an uncanny resemblance to the later views of Malthus.David Hume is reported as being critical of the ?form and style? of the work but ?exceedingly pleased? with it as an ?ingenious performance? when he looked it over in manuscript in 1766. Whilst Steuart?s interventionist economic principles provoked Adam Smith to refute them in The Wealth of Nations, recent commentary has emphasized the continuity in Scottish economic thought from David Hume to James Steuart to Adam Smith.Marx noticed him and he gradually enjoyed some attention from the members of the German Historical School in the 19th Century who appreciated his historical bent and his belief that economic development must be consciously managed by the state. More recently he has been hailed as a forerunner of the ?economics of control? and the concept of development planning.This three volume Irish printing is rarely seen for sale.

        Histoire de poissons contenant la déscription anatomique de leurs parties externes et internes, & le caractere des divers genres rangés pas classe et par ordres.

      Amand Konig,, Strasbourg: 1770 - 4to. [vi], xviii, [iii], 252, [3] pp. With 4 folding engraved plates. Contemporary paper-covered boards, rebacked; a fine copy. First edition of this very interesting work on the anatomy of fishes, in Latin and French on opposite pages. Gouan's history basically consists of full anatomical descriptions, with engravings by Weiss from Gouan's illustrations. Of particular interest are his remarkable observations on muscular movement. The descriptive classification of fish were probably intended as an introduction to a true general natural history of ichthyology. The book was quite popular both in France and following its translation into German.Goüan (1733-1821), a physician and professor of botany at Montpellier, was one of the first proponents in France of Linnaeus' methods and nomenclature. As a strict follower of the Linnaean school he only paid attention to exterior characters. According to Pietsch, it should be noted that the anatomy he gives includes a myology rather new for the time. [Attributes: First Edition]

Two engraved frontispiece portraits of La Fontaine. Decorative head- and tailpieces. Remarkable edition of La Fontaine's "Contes," lively stories in verse, grazing and sometimes transgressing the bounds of contemporary moral standards. They are magnificently illustrated with 84 engravings by Martinet after the illustrations of Charles Dominique Eisen (1720-1778), Louis XV's Court painter, and drawing master to Madame de Pompadour. The substantial group of plates here, is the liveliest and the most adroit that Eisen ever drew. Thoroughly at home with the varied action of these lusty stories--their love passages, their intrigues, their practical jokes--he is also expert in choosing the moment in each that will best serve his purpose as an illustrator. This copy is a smaller size of the famous Fermiers généraux edition originaly published in Amsterdam in 1762. Moderate rubbing along edges. Closed tear along front joint of second volume, but front board holding firmly. Minor age-toning along paper margin. Text in French.

        Dell'architettura. Dialogi [sic].

      nella Stamperia Marelliana,, in Milano, 1770 - In-4° (265x205mm), pp. (10), 92, legatura coeva p. pergamena rigida con titolo, fiorellini e decori in oro al dorso. All'antiporta, ritratto del Pini inciso su rame da Giacomo Mercori da invenzione di Martin Knoller. 5 tavv. f.t. ripiegate ed incise su rame, tre delle quali illustrano, con pianta prospetto e sezione, la chiesa parrocchiale di Seregno, oggi Chiesa di San Giuseppe. Qualche leggera brunitura. Bell'esemplare marginoso. Prima edizione, rara. La trattazione si snoda in due dialoghi, il primo dedicato alle cupole (con riferimenti tra l'altro a Brunelleschi e a Borromini), il secondo alle fortificazioni. Nel complesso del trattato, numerosi sono i riferimenti alla matematica, alla statica delle strutture, all'estetica architettonica e all'idea del "bello" in architettura, all'influenza svolta da Francesco de' Marchi sulle teorie fortificatorie di Vauban, etc. Il Pini (Milano, 1739-ivi, 1825), sacerdote barnabita e fecondo poligrafo, fu autore di importanti studi di geologia e mineralogia. Nel 1782 egli era stato eletto delegato delle miniere, incarico che conservò anche in epoca napoleonica; nel 1801 venne eletto deputato dei Comizi di Lione. Anche durante la Restaurazione, Pini continuò a godere della fiducia del governo, mantenendo il ruolo di figura di riferimento nel campo delle questioni minerarie e naturalistiche. Cicognara, 611.

        Les Baisers, Précédés Du Mois De Mai, Poëme

      et se trouve à Paris, chez Lambert, et Delalain,, A La Haye 1770 - Additional engraved title-page by Ponce, one plate by de Longueil, title-page vignette by Aliamet, 44 head and tailpieces by Aliamet, Baquoy, Binet, De Launay, Lingée, de Longueil, Masquelier, Massard, Née, and Ponce, after Eissen and Marillier. The title-page in black and red and with headings in red. 8vo. [207 x 132 x 16 mm]. 119pp. Bound c.1900 by Lortic (signed in gilt at the foot of the spine) in red goatskin, the covers with a gilt triple fillet border. Smooth spine divided into six panels with gilt compartments, lettered in the second and third, the others with a flower and sprigs, the edges of the boards tooled with a gilt double fillet, the turn-ins with gilt rolls, marbled endleaves, edges gilt over marbled. A few trivial spots but a very good copy of the first issue of the first edition on Holland paper with the title-page and headings in red and errors in pagination. All of the illustrations are after Eissen, except for two after Marillier. Acclaimed by both Portalis and Cohen as "the masterpiece of the eighteenth century" and by Salomons as "one of the most gracefully and beautifully illustrated books ever produced". "At first glance Les baisers seems to be one more "trifle light as air". Complaining of the price of a louis with Dorat demanded for "this magnificent pamphlet", Grimm maintained that there was no "girl at the opera who sells her kisses so dearly". But closer examination provides a different perspective. The twenty-two headpieces and twenty tailpieces with which Eissen adorned Dorat's hundred odd pages of text turn the book into a veritable paean to voluptuousness. And far from being a handicap, the small scale of the illustrations intensifies their appeal. It made Eissen, the Goncourts remarked, "the man of the infinitely small feminine nude, of the duodecimo nude". This triumph of miniature art is the apotheosis of the vignette". "Les baisers needs to be seen in its first issue on Holland paper with ample margins and early impressions of the vignettes. Such copies may be readily identified by their title-pages in black and red and several errors of pagination in "Les mois de mai" - Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book 1700 to 1914, 31.

        Studienblatt mit Köpfen und Figuren.

      . Feder in Schwarz, auf Velin mit Wasserzeichen: R F (wohl Nebenmarke). 20,5:33,5 cm. In flüssigem Strich sicher notierte Bildnisköpfe und Darstellungen in Ganzfigur. Bei einem Kopf im rechten oberen Bildteil handelt es sich um ein Bildnis des Dresdener Malers Carl August Richter (1770-1848).. Als Student in Göttingen wurde Rumohr bereits von J.- D. Fiorillo (1748-1821) zum Zeichnen angeregt. 1803/1804 wurde er in Dresden durch Ph. O. Runge (1777-1810) und L. Tieck (1789-1810) beeinflußt und besuchte oft die Gemäldegalerie. Zusammen mit den Brüdern F. und J. Riepenhausen (1786-1821, 1789-1860) reiste er 1805 nach Rom, wo er mit J. A. Koch (1768-1839) und J. Chr. Reinhart (1761-1847) verkehrte. Von hier aus besuchte er auch Neapel und dessen Umgebung. In den folgenden fünf Jahren hielt er sich zur Weiterbildung in München, Hamburg und Neapel auf. Seit 1810 schrieb er kunstgeschichtliche und kunstkritische Aufsätze. Auf seiner zweiten Italienreise, von 1816-1822, begleitete ihn sein Schützling F. Horny (1798-1824). Das Hauptergebnis seiner schriftstellerischen Tätigkeit in Italien waren seine Italienischen Forschungen, die sich durch gründliche Sachkenntnis auszeichnen und der Kunstgeschichte neue Wege wiesen. Gleichzeitig betätigte er sich als Kunstmäzen und Sammler und förderte besonders junge Talente. Auf seiner dritten Italienreise, die er zusammen mit Fr. Nerly (1807-1878) im Jahr 1828 unternahm und den er stark förderte, vollendete er den dritten Teil seiner Italienischen Forschungen. Von Rumohr war als Zeichner Dilettant. Er arbeitete in einer zierlichen, schraffierenden Federtechnik, in der noch die malerische Auffassung des 18. Jahrhunderts nachlebt.

Edition collective de textes materialistes ou sceptiques attribues a Maturin Veyssiere La Croze (Nantes, 1661 - Berlin 1739), erudit orientaliste, mauriste converti au protestantisme. Passe en Prusse, il devint un proche de Frederic II et protege de Leibniz. Ce recueil est compose de 3 oeuvres : -- Trois 'Entretiens entre un chretien et un juifs', peut-etre repris et edites sur les papiers du philosophe juif Isaac Orobio de Castro (1617-1687). -- 'Dissertation sur l'atheisme, et sur les athees modernes' (p. 248-284), publie primitivement en 1711, dans lequel l'auteur aborde les doctrines de Vanini, Campanella et de Giordano Bruno presente un athee pre-spinoziste. -- Et une 'Lettre de Gaspar Scioppius [Gaspar Schopp] sur la mort de Jordanus Brunus [Giordano Bruno]', (p. 285-450), au cours de laquelle l'auteur aborde la question de l'origine du 'Traite des trois imposteurs' (p. 325-331). Le recueil a peut-etre ete edite dans l'entourage du baron d'Holbach qui publiait la meme annee, egalement a l'adresse de Londres, une oeuvre attestee d'Orobio: 'Israel venge'. (Szajkowski, 1542).

Modern half calf, marbled boards, black morocco labels to the spine, low bands framed by single gilt fillets, single fillets in blind to the spine and corner edges, edges sprinkled brown. The first-named with folding map frontispiece with hand-colour, 9 plates, one of them folding; the second with folding map frontispiece and one other folding map, 5 plates, 2 of them folding. Light browning, else a very good copy in a clean and neat recent binding. First English editions of d'Auteroche and Krasheninnikov's important travels in Siberia, first published in French in 1768, and in Russian in 1755 respectively, the publisher recommending Krasheninnikov as a "proper Supplement" to d'Auteroche, describing it as "just published" verso of the last leaf of the contents. A colleague of Maraldi, Cassini de Thury and Lalande at the Paris Observatory, the French priest and astronomer abbé Jean-Baptiste Chappe d'Auteroche travelled to Siberia in 1761 to observe the transit of Venus, and his account of that trip describes the meteorology, climate, fauna and minerals of the region, and also gives a sociological commentary. As Hill comments, these "forthright and sometimes provocative descriptions of Russian manners and character … inspired the publication of an indignant rebuttal, sometimes attributed to Catherine the Great". As the second volume of his account d'Auteroche included his own translation of Krasheninnikov's description of Kamchatka, Opisanie zemli Kamchatki (St Petersburg, 1755), the first scientific account of the region, and "still regarded as one of the landmarks of scientific travel literature" (Howgego). Krasheninnikov "participated in the Russian Academy of Sciences' second Kamchatka expedition (1733–43), under Bering, which attempted to prove the feasibility of a north-east passage between Asia and America", here it is offered in James Grieve's "judicious abridgement [which] resulted in a more balanced product that proved of enduring interest" (ODNB). Grieve had practised medicine in Russia, as doctor to the Kazan and Siberian factories' directorate; at the St Petersburg land hospital and a guards division based in the city; and at the courts of the Empress Elizabeth, and perhaps, briefly, that of Catherine the Great.

      Ã¬The Bible of Materialismî[HOLBACH, Paul Henri Thiry, baron dí]. SystÍme de la nature. Ou Des loix du monde physique & du monde moral. Par M. Mirabaud. Londres [i.e., Amsterdam: Marc-Michel Rey], 1770.First edition. Two volumes, octavo. [12], 370; [4], 412 pp.Contemporary speckled calf with covers ruled in blind. Elaborately gilt spine with burgundy morocco label, gilt board edges, marbled endpapers, edges stained red. Joints and extremities rubbed. Occasional light foxing and browning, primarily to first and last few leaves of each volume. Generally, a very good, crisp copy. In a quarter morocco clamshell case.Paul Heinrich Dietrich, Baron díHolbach (1723-1789) first became known as a scientist, contributing some four hundred articles to the EncyclopÃ?die of his friend and colleague Denis Diderot. Holbach later turned from science to more dangerous topics, writing and having published abroad, a number of books attacking religion in all aspects, which flooded illegally into France. Unable to publish safely under his own name, he had the ingenious idea of using the names of recently dead French authors. Thus, in 1770, his most famous book, ìThe System of Nature,î appeared under the name of Jean-Baptiste Mirabaud.ìIn the SystÃ?me Holbach rejected the Cartesian mind-body dualism and attemped to explain all phenomena, physical and mental, in terms of matter in motion. He derived the moral and intellectual faculties from manís sensibility to impressions made by the external world, and saw human actions as entirely determined by pleasure and pain. He continued his direct attack on religion by attempting to show that it derived entirely from habit and custom. But the SystÃ?me was not a negative or desctructive book: Holbach rejected religion because he saw it as a wholly harmful influence, and he tried to supply a more desirable alternative. In fact, he outlined a whole ethical and political philosophy, which he expanded in his later worksî (Printing and the Mind of Man).Goldsmithsí Library 10607. Kress 6737.

      1770. Radierung, 1770, auf Bütten. 16:19,1 cm. Sehr guter Abdruck, Exemplar vor der Hinzufügung der Aquatinta und der Publikationszeile mit dem Datum "1780". Mit ca. 1,5/2 cm breitem Rand um die Plattenkante. Literatur: Nagler 22 b; Andresen 27, I (von II); Katalog C. G. Boerner, 1979: Angelika Kauffmann und ihre Zeit. Nr. 31, I (von II). Sehr selten!. Angelika Kauffmann war eine der berühmtesten Malerinnen ihrer Zeit. Bereits als 11jährige galt sie als Wunderkind. Als Tochter des Porträt- und Freskenmalers J.J. Kauffmann (1702-1782), der ihr erster Lehrer war, wurde Kauffmanns zeichnerisches und musikalisches Talent schon im Kindesalter erkannt und gefördert. Die beiden ersten Italienaufenthalte in den Jahren 1754-1757 und 1758-1766 brachten entscheidende künstlerische Impulse sowie die Verbindung zu zahlreichen potenziellen Auftraggebern. 1766 ließ sie sich in England nieder, wo sie zahlreiche Porträtaufträge von Hof und Adel erhielt. Nach der Heirat mit dem Maler A. Zucchi (1726-1795) siedelte sie 1782 nach Rom über, wo sie ebenfalls bald zu einer der gefeiertsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit avancierte. Auch für die deutschen Romreisenden war ihr Atelier eine wichtiger Treffpunkt, insbesondere für den Weimarer Kreis um Goethe, Herder, die sie beide porträtierte, und Herzogin Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar. Neben ihrer Porträttätigkeit betrieb Angelika Kauffmann ebenso erfolgreich die Historienmalerei. So führte sie Aufträge u.a. für Kaiser Joseph II. und für das russische Herrscherhaus aus. Bereits 1762 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia Bologna und 1765 ordentliches Mitglied der Accademia di San Luca zu Rom. Zudem beteiligte sie sich 1768 an der Gründung der Royal Academy; gemeinsam mit Mary Moser (1744-1819), einer der berühmtesten Malerinnen Englands, gehörte sie zu deren einzigen weiblichen Mitgliedern.

His essays criticizing British imperial policy, while published in Britain, were intended for audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, and they were reprinted in over 30 colonial American newspapers and did much to galvanize public opinion to support resistance to imperial revenue measures. Written only days after the Boston Massacre, Lee comments on the disorder in Boston created by the presence of regular British troops in the town, in an address to Massachusetts governor Francis Bernard (who unbeknownst to Lee at the time had

      Robert Sayer, London 1770 - Mezzotint (margins expertly extended) on laid paper. A fine early mezzotint after an equestrian portrait by the mid-18th century master Francis Sartorius Robert Sayer issued four mezzotint portraits of well-known racehorses after Sartorius, each with details of their successes, and dated 10 January 1770. The present print is probably somewhat later. Francis Sartorius was born in Nuremburg and came to London with his father, John, in the mid-18th century. "Francis exhibited paintings of racehorses, hunters and hacks in London between 1773 and 1791, including twelve pictures in the Royal Academy. His work bridges the gap between the 'primitive' work of James Seymour and the realism of George Stubbs." (Lane, p.157). Charles Lane , British Racing Prints p.159.
