        Copy of a letter to J. Ellis, Esq. , of Gray's-inn, from Dr. Solander... [in], The Annual Register, or a View of the History, Politicks, and Literature for the Year 1769

      London: Printed for J. Dodsley, 1770. Two volumes in one, octavo; contemporary ms. ownership and shelf marks on front pastedown; an excellent copy in contemporary calf. Early news from the Endeavour. OA little-known first voyage publication, in fact one of the first accounts of the voyage to be printed: a letter from Solander to John Ellis written from Rio de Janeiro, dated 1 December 1768. Solander writes of his and Joseph Banks's frustration at being refused permission by the viceroy to go ashore to study the abundant plant life but how, by 'fair means and foul', they had managed to acquire some 300 specimens, and identify a number of new species. Although only a few pages long, the letter bristles with scientific comment on the flora and fauna they had managed to examine, and simultaneously shows Solander's eagerness for the voyage, commenting on how he has enlisted some of the brighter sailors to help identify and catalogue new species. He also recommends that visitors to Madeira seek out the assistance of one Dr Heberden who, Solander notes, contributed to their scientific study by procuring Banks and himself 'access to a nunnery' - given the ribald jokes later made at Banks' expense on the subject of his amorous adventures during the voyage, one wonders at the wisdom of this aside. Solander, who trained with Linnaeus, moved to England in 1759 for what was meant to be a brief visit, but it became his permanent home. With introductions from his former tutor, he became firm friends with John Ellis, and made substantial contributions to many of his most important works, including the Natural History of Zoophytes. However, it is the patronage of Sir Joseph Banks which was the turning point in Solander's career, and which led to his joining Cook's first voyage. On their return, Solander became Banks' secretary and librarian, a portmanteau position that also meant that he was, in effect, the curator of the natural history collection. Like Banks, Solander was very shy of taking credit for his work, and although he worked on some of the most important natural history projects of his generation, very few pieces were actually signed, and have only been attributed to him by later scholarship. Despite his many travels, Solander never returned to Sweden, and died at Soho Square in 1782. Not recorded by Beddie.

        Il selvaggio di Taiti ai Francesi con una lettera diretta al filosofo amico dei selvaggi

      A Londra, 1770. Octavo, xvi, 104 pp.; a fine uncut copy in original soft boards, rather worn and stained but nonetheless attractive, owner's inscription 'Girolamo Gherardini' on title. Very rare Italian translation of Bricaire de la Dixmerie's fictional account of Autourou, published in Paris in the same year; one of the earliest works on Tahiti. The book is not recorded by the National Union Catalog, nor by the standard bibliography of Tahiti (O'Reilly and Reitman's Bibliographie de Tahiti). Rolf Du Rietz comments in the Kroepelien catalogue that the printing is so rare that he has been able to locate only two copies of the work and no reference to it in any bibliography or catalogue. This important work relating to Tahiti takes the form of a letter allegedly written by Aotourou, the Tahitian who returned to Paris with Bougainville. There was much criticism of Bougainville on this point - Diderot particularly upbraided him for having 'torn' the native from his environment - but Autourou was a sensation, and apparently fascinated by the French capital. Bougainville himself paid to kit out a ship when Autourou expressed a wish to return home, but the Tahitian was killed en voyage by an outbreak of small pox. La Dixmerie was personally involved with Aotourou, and helped introduce him to Parisian high society. Despite this personal contact, la Dixmerie remained virulently opposed to the popular notion of the noble savage, just as he sided with Diderot in arguing that it was a violence to have brought Autourou back to France. In this fictional letter, Aotourou satirically compares the mores of Paris society with that of Nouvelle-Cythère. The description of Tahiti is based on the Lettre de Monsieur de Commerson, the naturalist on the voyage, which was first published in 1769. Published the next year, la Dixmerie's imaginative work is, as du Rietz comments, 'one of the earliest books relating to Tahiti.' Not until the 1779 publication of Taitbout's Essai sur l'Isle d'Otahiti would there be any serious separate work on Tahiti.

He left Russia once again in 1744.

        A view of his Grace the Duke of Kingston's house at Thoresby, with his Grace & attendants going a setting

      [London?] 1770 - A fine example of this excellent portrait (of both the Duke and his pointers) after Tillemans. This is a reduced version of a view (on two plates) published (according to Siltzer) by Sayer with an image area of 28 1/2 x 16 inches. Peter Tillemans "came to England from Antwerp in 1708. His first commissions were to paint topographical views. Each required figures to give life to the well-painted landscapes and what was more natural than to show some of the people mounted. his large and busily populated pictures of Newmarket Heath have considerable charm. The influence of his friend John Wotton is most pronounced in his horse portraiture while his compositions owe something to Francis Barlow. Tillemans' patrons included all the principal race-horse owners of the period. He must have known Newmarket well, already established as the home of the turf. Tillemans' influence on later sporting artists is considerable. The engravings after his Newmarket paintings provide a fascinating record of training and horse management when the turf was developing quickly in the hands of the aristocracy of the period." (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.173) Mellon British Sporting and Animal Prints p. 187; Schwerdt III, p124; cf. Siltzer p.274 (large version only). Line engraving, by Pritchard (expert small repairs to left and right margins).

        January

      Robert Sayer and John King, London 1770 - A very rare image that is both a highly decorative botanical print and an important document in the history of gardening. The plate comes from a very rare later issue of a series called 'Twelve Months of Flowers', originally issued by Robert Furber in 1730. Furber was a nurseryman with gardens near Hyde Park Gate in Kensington, London. The series was issued as a luxurious catalogue for his stock: over 400 flowers are illustrated, and each is identified in the key below the picture so that customers could easily order their requirements. These plates thus form an illustrated check-list of the varieties and forms of flowers that were popular with gardeners in the early 18th century. Furber later issued a small quarto book which contained reduced versions of the original plates. The present plate, published by Sayer, is from a very rare later version, re-engraved yet again, but to a size that is mid-way between the original and the quarto issue. Engraving, coloured by hand, by R. S.[heppard]. (Cut close to plate mark).

Zürich, 1991, S. 98, Farbabb. S. 99, Nrn. 74-80 mit Abb.. Heß erlernte das väterliche Gewerbe eines Metzgers. Wenn er zum Vieheinkauf über Land ging, zeichnete er oder nahm sich Tierköpfe von der Schlachtbank als Modell mit heim. Auf diese Weise und Gemälde kopierend, bildete er sich vorzugsweise autodidaktisch. Einige Monate (1778) genoß er die Anleitung von H. Wuest und gewann die Freundschaft von H. Freudweiler, J. H. Meyer und S. Gessner, dessen Landschaften ihn entscheidend beeinflußten, von Lavater und Bodmer, durch die er Käufer, namentlich seiner Hochgebirgsbilder auch unter Engländern und Dänen, Deutschen und Franzosen fand. Er unternahm zahlreiche Wanderungen in die Alpen, ins Tessin und an den Comersee; einmal ging er bis Mailand und Genua. 1792 besuchte er Chamonix und malte ein berühmtes Montblanc-Bild, das in England verschollen ist. Auf diesen Reisen entwickelte er seinen Sinn für die Größe der Alpenwelt und eine bis dahin unerreichte Naturnähe der malerischen Darstellung. Schließlich wanderte er nach Rom (1794), wo ihn die Kunst Claude Lorrains und N. Poussins anzog. Als 1798 die französische Revolution das Reisen erschwerte, verlegte er sich aufs Radieren und schuf etwa achtzig Platten nach seinen früheren Gemälden und Zeichnungen. Das Muotatal ist im Kanton Schwyz östlich vom Vierwaldstätter See gelegen.

        Shooting, Plate II

      Published by Thomas Bradford 1770 - A magnificent example of plate two from George Stubbs's rare shooting series, which highlights the artistic genius of this celebrated sporting artist. George Stubbs is considered to be one of the greatest English painters. His ingenious animal and sporting pictures remain unrivalled in their passionate depiction of emotion and their commitment to naturalistic observation. Stubbs' attached great importance to the belief that art should imitate nature, not the work of other artists. He spent years carefully studying human and equine anatomy so that he could truthfully represent natural form and movement. Through arduous application, he became a talented mezzotint engraver and worked with ease in both soft ground and etching techniques. This rare series is a wonderful example of Stubbs's genius; it brings a subtle complexity of composition and human interaction to a popular sporting theme, thus creating a set of truly compelling images. Stubbs sets his famous shooting series around Creswell Crag's steep limestone formations on the border between Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. In the Crags were caves containing the remains of prehistoric animals, as well as tools and weapons that were some of the oldest signs of human life in Britain. With their primeval and savage associations, they clearly appealed to Stubbs's imagination, and he repeatedly used them as a dramatic backdrop in his emotive paintings. In the shooting series, the crags serve to suggest the idea of the hunt as an age-old human endeavor. Although the two hunters are portrayed as city gentlemen, in this setting they echo the ancient struggle of man against nature, by literally following in the footsteps of early mankind. The paintings were not exhibited as a group in Stubbs's lifetime, but rather individually at the Society of Artists in 1767, 1768, 1769, and 1770.

        Segelschiffe im Hafen.

      . Sepia-Pinsel, mit Sepia-Feder umrandet, auf Bütten. 4,5:5,9 cm. Ein Gegenstück zu dieser Zeichnung in identischer Größe befindet sich in der Kunsthalle Hamburg (Inv. Nr. 9163/241).. Künstlerisches Talent hatte sich früh bei dem jungen Kobell gezeigt und er erhielt Zeichenunterricht. Der Vater, ein Cousin von Ferdinand und Franz Kobell, hatte ihn aber für den kaufmännischen Beruf bestimmt, so daß er sich zunächst nur als Dilettant der künstlerischen Tätigkeit widmen konnte. Er zeichnete schon früh Motive von der durch Schiffe belebten Maas und wurde noch jung auf die Marinemalerei gelenkt. Einen Aufenthalt in England, wohin er im Auftrag des Vaters in Handelsgeschäften geschickt worden war, nutzte er zur weiteren künstlerischen Ausbildung. 1770 stellte er in der "Free Society" in London aus, ging aber erst nach seiner Rückkehr in die Heimat ganz zur Kunst über. Er verbrachte zwei Jahre in Amsterdam und studierte an der Zeichenakademie. Er fand Kontakt zu den dortigen Sammlern, z.B. Jac. de Vos und besonders zu Cornelis Ploos van Amstel, die ihm zahlreiche Zeichnungen abkauften. Hier lernte er auch Joh. Heinr. Wilh. Tischbein (1751-1829) kennen, mit dem er künstlerischen Austausch pflegte. 1772 unternahm er eine Studienreise in Frankreich und ließ sich dann in Rotterdam nieder, wo er mit Dirk Langendijk (1748-1805) zusammenarbeitete.

        Une petite fille reçevant ses étrennes' [A little girl receives her gifts]

      [Frankfurt 1770 - A fine first state impression of this charming image, printed 'avant la lettre': before the addition of any lettering to the title panel. A reflective, fashionable lady in a tumultuous silk gown, leans forward slightly to hand some coins to her daughter. The small child stands looking up at her mother, one hand clasping an overflowing apron full of presents: a tankard, a corset; she holds her other hand up to her lips as if to say "a single kiss from you would mean more to me than all these gifts". Schenau was the pseudonym of Johann Eleazar Zeissig (1737-1806), who was at the time this engraving was made, the most popular genre painter in France. He was born in Saxony, but went to France in 1756 and stayed until 1770. He was successful in many realms of visual arts: painting, engraving, sculpture. He was most directly influenced by Greuze and liked to infuse his genre paintings with elements of emotion missing from most boudoir scenes. Justus Chevillet (1729-1790) was also born in Germany, but enjoyed a successful career in Paris as an engraver. Le Blanc II, p.11, no.81. Engraving, by Juste Chevillet, after Schenau (1 1/2 inch tear to left margin).

        An Historical Collection of the several Voyages and Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean

      London: Printed for the author, 1770-, 1771. Two volumes in one, quarto, 17 engraved maps and plates; a couple of small stains, and some general ageing, but a good copy (complete with the 2 pp. Contents and Directions, often missing) in contemporary half calf, all edges red, some wear to joints and extremities. State of play in the Pacific. First edition: Dalrymple&#39;s history of the early voyages to the Southern Ocean is one of the foundation books for any voyage library. This classic voyage text was a work of far-reaching importance by the leading English hydrographer. Passionately involved in the argument over the possible existence of a southern continent, Dalrymple partially translates here some twelve original accounts which support his belief in its existence. His collection begins with Magellan&#39;s voyage of 1519, and the Spanish accounts that he translates include Mendana&#39;s voyage to the Solomon Islands in 1595, and that of De Quiros in 1606. The Dutch accounts include those of Le Maire, Schouten, Tasman, and Roggeveen. Dalrymple&#39;s long introduction on trade and his &#39;investigation of what may be farther expected in the South Sea&#39; carefully expound his belief in the existence of a "Great Southern Continent", a theory only finally laid to rest when Cook later sailed right over a substantial portion of it. Dalrymple (1737-1808), the great hydrographer, who had made his career in the East India Company, had originally been offered the command of the Endeavour voyage to observe the transit of Venus, but partly because of his insistence on being given an Admiralty commission, the command went instead to Cook. His disappointment is hinted at in the remarkable "undedications" of this work: to Byron &#39;who discovered scarcely anything but Patagonians&#39; and to Banks who &#39;infatuated with female blandishments forgot for what he went abroad and hastened back to amuse the European world with stories of enchantments&hellip;&#39;. Dalrymple&#39;s work was issued in a rather haphazard fashion. The first volume first appeared in a now exceedingly rare issue with a 1769 title-page and a dedication leaf also dated 1769, then in an equally rare edition with a cancel-title dated 1770. This version represents the form most often seen, with both title and dedication present as cancels.

        Lettre de M. le C** de L***. A Monsieur Dupont, auteur éphémériste , au Château de Tourgeville, ce 15 Septembre 1770 [drop title]

      n.p., circa, 1770. Duodecimo, 72 pp., drop-title only, as published with no separate title-page and no colophon; very good, in modern boards, morocco label. A very good copy of this uncommon title by the fiery Comte de Lauraguais, best known for his association with Sir Joseph Banks, and particularly for his abortive attempt to publish a narrative by Banks of the Endeavour voyage. The pamphlet dates from the period just before Lauraguais fled to sanctuary in London, where he would pursue his acquaintance with Banks and ultimately attempt to publish his friend&#39;s letter on the Cook voyage. Lauraguais (1733-1824) had published his Mémoire sur la Compagnie des Indes in 1770, and it had been the subject of some strong attacks by figures such as the economist Morellet. Here, the Dupont of the title is actually one of Morellet&#39;s closest allies, Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours, the French economist whose children established the famous chemical company Dupont in the United States. Dupont was himself the protégé of François Quesnay, and formed part of a group dedicated to economic and cultural reforms. The Compagnie des Indes (or French East India Company) had been disbanded amid great controversy in 1769, and naturally became the subject of strong polemics by many influential French writers, especially after Louis XVI decreed that the properties and assets of the Company should be transferred to the state. Both Dupont and Lauraguais had already published strongly-worded essays on the subject, and as this pamphlet confirms, they didn&#39;t see eye-to-eye on the subject. As a result, this pamphlet is a violent attack against Dupont de Nemours: indeed, Lauraguais&#39;s outbursts on the Compagnie des Indes at this time were one of the main reasons he went into self-imposed exile in England in 1771. Lauraguais was notoriously quick to print, but despite his rather voluminous output, all of his pamphlets and books are quite scarce. This pamphlet is certainly very rare, and although noted in Barbier&#39;s bibliography it is not widely known. Copies are scarce in international collections, although the works collates identically with a copy in the Bibliothèque National de France.

Minor foxing and soiling, marginal tear in half-title repaired, but very good.</p> <p>First Edition of Toaldo&#146;s work on the influence of the stars and planets on the Earth&#146;s weather and atmosphere, which went through three editions in the 18th century and was translated into French. Toaldo was a professor of astronomy and meteorology at the University of Padua and the first director of the city&#146;s astronomical observatory, which he was instrumental in having built. He began taking meteorological observations in 1766 and in 1778 founded the Giornale astro-meteorologico, a yearly journal whose purpose was to perform meteorological forecasts based on astronomical cycles and the previous years&#146; statistical data. He was very interested in &#147;performing sound statistical analyses, to find teleconnections between astronomical and meteorological events, and to establish practical connections between meteorology and human health or agriculture&#148; (Camuffo, p. 33).</p> <p>Included in Toaldo&#146;s work is a brief paper by astronomer and physicist Roger Joseph Boscovich (1711-87) describing a new type of pendulum (&#147;Descrizione d&#146;un nuovo pendolo a correzione,&#148; pp. 216-222).

Zürich, 1991, S. 98, Farbabb. S. 99, Nrn. 74-80 mit Abb.. Heß erlernte das väterliche Gewerbe eines Metzgers. Wenn er zum Vieheinkauf über Land ging, zeichnete er oder nahm sich Tierköpfe von der Schlachtbank als Modell mit heim. Auf diese Weise und Gemälde kopierend, bildete er sich vorzugsweise autodidaktisch. Einige Monate (1778) genoß er die Anleitung von H. Wuest und gewann die Freundschaft von H. Freudweiler, J. H. Meyer und S. Gessner, dessen Landschaften ihn entscheidend beeinflußten, von Lavater und Bodmer, durch die er Käufer, namentlich seiner Hochgebirgsbilder auch unter Engländern und Dänen, Deutschen und Franzosen fand. Er unternahm zahlreiche Wanderungen in die Alpen, ins Tessin und an den Comersee; einmal ging er bis Mailand und Genua. 1792 besuchte er Chamonix und malte ein berühmtes Montblanc-Bild, das in England verschollen ist. Auf diesen Reisen entwickelte er seinen Sinn für die Größe der Alpenwelt und eine bis dahin unerreichte Naturnähe der malerischen Darstellung. Schließlich wanderte er nach Rom (1794), wo ihn die Kunst Claude Lorrains und N. Poussins anzog. Als 1798 die französische Revolution das Reisen erschwerte, verlegte er sich aufs Radieren und schuf etwa achtzig Platten nach seinen früheren Gemälden und Zeichnungen. Das Muotatal ist im Kanton Schwyz östlich vom Vierwaldstätter See gelegen.

        Tabulae motuum solis et lunae novae et correctae. . . quibus accedit methodus longitudinum promota, eodem auctore

      London: W. & J. Richardson, 1770. <p>The First Tables Accurate Enough to Find the Longitude at Sea </p><p>Mayer, Johann Tobias (1723-1762). Tabulae motuum solis et lunae novae et correctae. . . quibus accedit methodus longitudinum promota, eodem auctore. Edited by Nevil Maskelyne (1732-1811). 4to. vii, 136, cxxx, [2]pp. 2 folding engraved plates. London: William and John Richardson for John Nourse, John Mount and Thomas Page, 1770. 270 x 217 mm. Contemporary tree calf (rebacked). Fine copy. Bookplate of Margaret Maskelyne (1786-1858), the only child of Nevil Maskelyne, on front pastedown. Bookplate of Haskell F. Norman. </p><p>First Edition of Mayer&#146;s highly accurate lunar tables, which were the first to allow mariners to calculate longitude at sea to within a degree (60 miles). For these tables Mayer&#146;s widow received £3000 of the British Admiralty&#146;s prize established by the Act of Parliament of 12 November 1713 to &#147;such person or persons as shall discover the longitude at sea.&#148; After a long struggle John Harrison eventually received between £8000 and £9000 of the same prize money for the invention of the marine chronometer. </p><p>A preliminary version of Mayer&#146;s tables was published in the proceedings of the Göttingen Scientific Society in 1753; meanwhile, Mayer continued to improve the tables until his death in 1762. In 1763 Mayer&#146;s widow sent a copy of the improved tables to the Board of Longitude in application of the prize. The tables were first edited for publication seven years later by Nevil Maskelyne, the Astronomer Royal, who had tested Mayer&#146;s earlier tables with positive results on a voyage to St. Helena in 1761; Maskelyne used Mayer&#146;s tables to compute the lunar and solar ephemerides in the early editions of his Nautical Almanac, and since he was on the Board of Longitude we may assume that he was influential in having a portion of the prize awarded to Mayer&#146;s widow. Appended to Mayer&#146;s tables are two short tracts, one on determining longitude by lunar distances, together with a description of the reflecting circle (invented by Mayer in 1752), and the other on a formula for atmospheric refraction, which applies a remarkably accurate correction for temperature. </p><p>Because Nevil Maskelyne had only one child, Margaret Maskelyne, who was not an astronomer, and who would not have otherwise found a use for these tables, it is highly likely that this is Nevil Maskelyne&#146;s personal copy of these tables so famous in the history of longitude.

        Systeme de la nature, ou des loix du monde physique & du monde moral. Par M. Mirabaud

      London [i.e., Amsterdam]: Marc-Michel Rey, 1770. First edition. <p>Holbach, Paul Henry Thiery, Baron d&#39; (1723-89). Systeme de la nature. Ou des loix du monde physique & du monde moral. Par M. Mirabaud. 2 vols., 8vo. [6], 370; [4], 412pp. London [i.e., Amsterdam: Marc-Michel Rey], 1770. 195 x 119 mm. Contemporary crushed green morocco gilt ca. 1770, all edges gilt, extremities very slightly rubbed. First and last leaves browned, a few spots, but a fine copy in a superb, unfaded, and extremely rare original binding. Ownership signature of V. C. Auffret in Vol. I.</p><p>First issue of the First Edition. Printing and the Mind of Man 215. The Baron d&#39;Holbach, one of the first self-proclaimed atheists in Europe, was the author of a number of philosophical works advocating materialism and attacking religion as detrimental to the moral advancement of humanity. His most famous work was the controversial Systeme de la Nature, in which he</p><p>"rejected the Cartesian mind-body dualism and attempted to explain all phenomena, physical and mental, in terms of matter in motion. He derived the moral and intellectual faculties from man&#39;s 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 Systeme was not a negative or destructive book: Holbach rejected religion because he saw it as a wholly harmful influence, and he tried to supply a more desirable alternative "(Printing and the Mind of Man).</p><p>The radical ideas expressed in the Systeme came under widespread attack, and even the free-thinking Voltaire was moved to refute the Systeme&#39;s arguments in his own Dictionnaire philosophique. D&#39;Holbach issued the work pseudonymously under the name of the late Jean-Baptiste de Mirabaud and had it published in Amsterdam by the publisher of Rousseau, in order to avoid censure. This work is extremely rare in a contemporary French morocco binding. Of French morocco bindings of the 18th century Green morocco bindings are the rarest and most desirable. Wikipedia. </p>

        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.

In de Brieven vindt men een vertaling van Isaac de Pintos Apologie pour la Nation Juive, ou Réflexions critiques sur le premier chapitre du VIIe tome des Oeuvres de M. de Voltaire au sujet des Juifs. Amsterdam & Parijs, 1762. Dit werk van De Pinto werd herdrukt in het werk van Ant. Guénée en van daaruit vertaald in het Nederlands. Voltaire had in het gewraakte hoofdstuk de joden hebzuchtig, losbandig en bijgelovig genoemd, kwalificaties die De Pinto bestreed onder verwijzing naar maatschappelijke oorzaken voor het gedrag van niet de sefardische maar de asjkenazische joden. (...) De Réflexions critiques, waar Voltaire minzaam op antwoordde, luidde de publicistische carrière van De Pinto in (...).

        PROSPECTUS LATERIS ARCIS EX PARTE DURIAE MAJORIS CON ILLUMINATIONE AUGUSTÆ TAURINORUM. - VÜE DE LA FAÇADE DU CHATEAU DU CÔTÉ DE LA GROSSE DOIRE AVEC L'ILLUMINATION À TURIN.

      BASSANO, REMONDINI, 1770 ca. (mm 314 x 410 ca. più marg.)Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame, dalla bella coloritura policroma coeva, eseguita a tempera ed acquerello; in lastra, sotto la linea marginale, titolo in latino e in traduzione francese nonché, a sinistra, sigla "X 2". La rara opera, uscita dalla celebre stamperia Remondini di Bassano del Grappa, riproduce con varianti una tavola vedutistica, parte di uno dei più bei libri di feste del Settecento italiano; il volume, intitolato "La sontuosa illuminazione della città di Torino [...]", venne pubblicato nel 1737 a Torino, per i tipi di G. B. Chais, in occasione delle nozze fra Carlo Emanuele III re di Sardegna ed Elisabetta Teresa di Lorena. L'immagine rappresenta il lato di Palazzo Madama a Torino che prospetta sulla contrada della Dora Grossa, attuale via Garibaldi, con la monumentale facciata barocca progettata da Filippo Juvarra. All'epoca di Guglielmo VII del Monferrato, al centro di piazza Castello sorgeva un fortilizio chiamato Castrum Portae Phibellone, di cui possiamo ancora oggi ammirare le due torri sul lato orientale di Palazzo Madama. Il Castello subì molteplici trasformazioni nel tempo, nel XV secolo ampliarono le costruzioni difensive, Carlo Emanuele II mutò completamente la disposizione dell'edificio e fece costruire il grande salone, infine nel 1718 Juvarra eresse la facciata di ponente ed il grandioso scalone a due rami. Imponente edificio già Porta Romana, poi Castello medioevale ed infine dimora della vedova di Carlo Emanuele II. La coloritura è tipica delle vues d'optique, destinate ad essere esposte alla luce dello strumento ottico detto "lanterna magica". Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

      Londres [i.e. Amsterdam, ohne Drucker, und: Berlin, Nourse, [i.e. Voss]), 1770.. Kl.-8vo. (15,7:10,5 cm). 2 Bll., 394 S., 1 Bl.; 70 S. Mit 1 Holzstich-Titelvignette. Lederband der Zeit auf 5 Bünden mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel auf farbigem Rückenschildchen sowie reicher Rückenvergoldung in den Feldern und Farbschnitt, kaum berieben.. Erste Ausgabe des anonym erschienenen, gemeinhin Baron d'Holbach zugeschriebenen 'Essai sur les prejuges' mit der ebenfalls anonym erschienenen, sehr seltenen Erwiderung Friedrich des Großen in Erstausgabe. - Paul Thiry d'Holbach (1723-1789, Philosoph der französischen Aufklärung, wichtiger Mitautor der Enzyklopädie) war vor allem für seine religionskritischen und atheistischen Thesen bekannt. In diesem politisch philosophischen Essay über die öffentliche Meinung und die Vorurteile forderte er neben einem allgemeinen, staatlichen Schulsystem auch einen Zusammenschluss des ersten und dritten Standes unter der Ägide der Philosophie. Friedrich II. von Preußen widersprach diesem Werk in seiner hier vorliegenden Gegenschrift 'Examen de l'Essai sur les prejuges' und wandte sich darin gegen den atheistischen Materialismus von d'Holbach. Seine Gegenschrift legte der König 1772 Voltaire und Jean-Baptiste le Rond d'Alembert zur Begutachtung vor. Denis Diderot, langjähriger Freund Baron d'Holbachs, antwortete schließlich dem Preußenkönig 1774 mit den 'Lettre de M. Denis Diderot sur l'Examen de l'Essai sur les prejuges.' - VD18 14456419-001 (= Examen...). - Titel gestempelt, sonst sehr sauberes und schönes Exemplar mit den beiden seltenen Schriften in einem vorzüglichen Lederband.

        Histoire et description du Kamtchatka. Contenant les Moeurs et les Coutumes des Habitants du Kamtchatka la Geographie du Kamtchatka et des Pays Circonvoisins

      Chez Marc-Michel Rey 1770 - - Chez Marc-Michel Rey, A Amsterdam _1770, 2 tomes en 2 Vol. in 12 (9,5x15,7cm), (4) xvj, 439pp. et (4) 492pp. (1), relié. - Première édition séparée, rare, illustrée de 6 figures et d'un tableau dépliants, manque la carte et une figure. L'exemplaire a été truffé d'un frontispice du voyage en Sibérie dont l'Histoire et description du Kamtchatka était la seconde partie et dont la première était de l'abbé Chappe ; l'ensemble parut en 1768. Demi veau blond ca 1920. Dos à nerfs janséniste. Bon exemplaire. La presqu'île de Kamtchatka est une péninsule volcanique située à l'extrême orient de la Russie, longue de 1200 km. Elle a été visitée par des explorateurs russes dès 1600 et des colons ne tardèrent pas à s'y installer. Le récit informatif conte par le menu les habitants, leurs moeurs et leurs coutumes, la seconde partie du premier volume est consacrée à la description géographique ; le second volume rapporte les duretés du climat, les caractéristiques de cette terre volcanique sujette aux séismes, la faune et la flore ainsi que le commerce et l'économie de la presqu'île, puis son histoire. La narration de voyage est très succinte mais fait la part belle à toutes sortes de descriptions et de témoignages dans un style neutre et presque administratif. Kracheninnikow prit part à l'expédition de Bering en Sibérie et au Kamtchatka, cet ouvrage est le résultat de ses observations qui permirent d'établir de nouvelles cartes plus fiables de la région. (4) xvj, 439pp. et (4) 492pp. (1) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
