        Wahre Bildnuss der MIRACULOSEN schmertzhafften Mutter Gottes zu Steinbach in oberschwaben. ATTACTA

      A. V. (Augsburg): Franz Xavier Endres, 1770. Folio broadsheet (348 x 272 mm). Hand-colored and varnished engraving, trimmed almost to platemark and mounted on contemporary stiff card paper, the contemporary coloring in maroon, reddish orange, green, and pale pink, on a yellow ground; some creasing, a few small tears, patch-repaired on verso, one 1-inch open tear touching image, small border losses, upper edge rubbed. *** An unusual hand-colored and varnished engraving, commemorating a pilgrimage to the church of Our Lady of Maria Steinbach, in Legau, Bavaria. 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).

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).

        An Essay on the Nature and Immutability of Truth; in opposition to Sophistry and Scepticism. Edinburgh, A. Kincaid & J. Bell, London, E. & C. Dilly, 1770.

      - First edition. 'In 1770 Beattie first published the work for which he is best known, An Essay on Truth, an abrasive attack on 'modern scepticism' in general, and on David Hume in particular. The Essay was a great success, earning its author an honorary degree from Oxford and an audience with George III. Samuel Johnson declared in 1772 that 'We all love Beattie'. Hume, on the other hand, described the Essay as 'a horrible large lie in octavo', and dismissed its author as that 'bigotted silly Fellow'. Although Beattie was no match for Hume as a philosopher, the success of the Essay suggests that, unlike Hume, Beattie voiced the characteristic assumptions and anxieties of his age' (James Beattie: Selected Philosophical Writings, edited by James Harris, 2004). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, viii, 503 pp., contemporary plain boards, stained and with wear at edges, spine label renewed, old annotation on the second of two front free endpapers, otherwise internally clean and unbrowned, a good sound copy with wide margins and edges uncut.

        Di una riforma d'Italia. Ossia dei mezzi di riformare i più cattivi costumi e le più perniciose leggi d'Italia. Edizione seconda accresciuta di altrettanto.Villafranca, s.n. , 1770.

      Villafranca, s.n. 1770 - Cm. 16,5, pp. (42) 708 [alcuni errori nella numerazione dei quaderni iniziali, copia esattamente conforme alla scheda Iccu e a tutte quelle collazionate e digitalizzate on line]. Legatura in cartonato rustico coevo con rinforzo al dorso in carta antica decorata. Segnatura di collocazione di biblioteca privata alla sguardia finale. Minimi segni del tempo alla legatura, macchiette sparse e sporadiche fioriture, peraltro esemplare ad ampi margini e in buono stato di conservazione. Carlo Antonio Pilati (1733-1802), giureconsulto e pensatore trentino di Tassullo, ebbe un ruolo significativo fra gli illuministi europei. Questo trattato fu scritto in Svizzera (e pubblicato per la prima volta in italiano nel 1767), dove il Pilati visse a lungo, anche a causa del bando ricevuto dal principato di Trento e dove comunuqe ebbe modo di conoscere Montesquieu, Helvetius, Voltaire e Rousseau. Pilati auspicò riforme graduali che contribuissero a migliorare il livello della vita senza peraltro portare a sacrificare le strutture politiche e sociali esistenti. Teorizzò la riforma del sistema giuridico rivalutando il diritto naturale e ridimensionando la tradizione romanistica, la riforma della Chiesa con l'abolizione degli ordini monastici e l'introduzione del matrimonio dei sacerdoti. Rivendicò infine la libertà dell'individuo nella sfera religiosa, attraverso la tolleranza verso ogni confessione e nella sfera giuridica, attraverso la rivisitazione del diritto di famiglia e della procedura penale. Rara seconda edizione accresciuta. Cfr.

ESTC T112796, BL & National Library of Wales only in UK; Boston Public Library only in North America. A translation of De la science du monde et des connaissances utiles à la conduite de la vie published in 1717 as a companion piece to Callière?s influential treatise on diplomacy De la manière de négocier avec les souverains, 1716. Although his 1716 work was translated into English and published in the same year, this is the earliest English edition recorded on ESTC. François de Callières, 1645-1717, was a French diplomat, author and special envoy to Louis XIV; he was one of three French signatories to the Peace of Ryswick in 1697. His work was well received in the English speaking world with Thomas Jefferson known to have had a copy of The Practice of Diplomacy at Monticello. ?Our author?, the translator writes in his preface, ?seems to have been a man of good heart and sound judgement, improved by the great experience of men and things with which his high station and employment unavoidably furnished him. It might be naturally imaged that a French Writer on this subject would too much encourage a coarse appetite for flatter, in the easy reciprocation and currency of which their vivacity and companionable turn are chiefly displayed. Mosieur Callieres seems to have had an understanding much above this foppery and self-delusion, the futile commerce and gratification of the little minds?. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Dialogues sur le commerce des bleds.Londres (ma Parigi), s.e., 1770.

      Londres (ma Parigi), s.e. 1770 - Cm. 20, pp. (4), 314 (2) + 2 c.b. Legatura in piena perg. rigida del tempo; tagli rossi. Trascurabili aloni al margine esterno di poche cc., qualche macchietta sparsa, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. Ferdinando Galiani (1728-1787), originario di Chieti fu tra i principali economisti europei del Settecento. In questa fondamentale opera, che ebbe enorme successo anche grazie alla raffinata prosa, l'A. sostenne con estremo realismo che le misure economiche vanno subordinate alle contingenze di tempo e luogo, delineando quindi una dottrina avversa all'assoluto liberismo dei fisiocrati. Galiani rifiuta la teoria della superiore produttività dell'agricoltura, sostenendo che è più facile avere incrementi nel settore industriale, impermeabile agli influssi stagionali. La sua analisi dell'organizzazione e della divisione del lavoro anticipò Adam Smith. Rara edizione originale inusualmente completa delle due cc. bianche finali, quasi sempre mancanti. Kress 6730; Goldsmiths 10640; Einaudi 2334. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cape Coast Castle, a British Settlement on the Gold Coast Africa.

      Artist: Barrow John ( - 1850) ; issued in: London; date: ca 1806 1770 - - technic: Copper print- Aquatinta; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Tear on the right side perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 43,5 x 55,5; - description: View of the Cape Coast at the Gold Coast of Ghana in Africa, with decorative offshore ships. Cape Coast Castle is one of about forty ;slave castles;, or large commercial forts, built on the Gold Coast of West Africa (now Ghana) by European traders. It was originally built by the Swedes for trade in timber and gold, but later used in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Other Ghanaian slave castles include Elmina Castle and Fort Christiansborg. They were used to hold slaves before they were loaded onto ships and sold in the Americas, especially the Caribbean. This ?gate of no return? was the last stop before crossing the Atlantic Ocean. The Gold Coast was a British colony on the Gulf of Guinea in west Africa that became the independent nation of Ghana in 1957.The first Europeans to arrive at the coast were the Portuguese in 1471. They encountered a variety of African kingdoms, some of which controlled substantial deposits of gold in the soil. In 1482, the Portuguese built the Castle of Elmina, the first European settlement on the Gold Coast. From here they traded slaves, gold, knives, beads, mirrors, rum and guns. News of the successful trading spread quickly, and eventually British, Dutch, Danish, Prussian and Swedish traders arrived as well. The European traders built several forts along the coastline. The Gold Coast had long been a name for the region used by Europeans because of the large gold resources found in the area. The slave trade was the principal exchange for many years.The British Gold Coast was formed in 1867 after the British government abolished the African Company of Merchants in 1821 and seized privately held lands along the coast

        System der Natur, von den Gesetzten der Physischen und Moralischen Welt. Erster und zweyter Theil.

      2 Bde. XVIII + 2 n.n. + 404, 2 n.n. + 444 S. Priv. Hld. der Zeit. DEA. VD18 11164492. - Ebd. berieben, V. leimschattig, Besitzsign. a. V., etw. fleckig, stockfleckig, Gbrsp. - Am Titelblatt der Anfang 1770 erschienenen Ausgabe wurde als Autor Jean-Baptiste de Mirabaud (16751760), ein Mitglied der Académie française und als Verlagsort London genannt. Der Autor d'Holbach versuchte clandestin Mirabauds Urheberschaft dem Leser noch glaubwürdiger machen zu wollen, indem er eine biographische Skizze des nunmehr zehn Jahre verstorbenen Sekretärs der französischen Akademie beifügte und ein fingiertes Schriftenverzeichnis auflistete. Dieses Handeln wird verständlich, wenn man sich der Auswirkungen und möglichen Folgen der Zensur zur Zeit von Ludwig XVI. vergegenwärtigt. Der eigentliche Verfasser war der Philosoph, Aufklärer und Enzyklopädist Paul-Henri Thiry dHolbach (1723 - 1789), der Ort seines Druckes lag in Holland bei dem Verleger Marc-Michel Rey. Die Tatsache, dass dHolbach der Autor war, drang erst zwei Jahrzehnte später in den öffentlichen Diskurs. Von 1752 bis 1760 arbeitet Paul Henri Thiry dHolbach hauptsächlich für die Encyclopédie des Denis Diderot er übersetzt und redigiert weit über 400 Beiträge zu Themen aus der Mineralogie, der Bergbaukunde und der Chemie. Gleichzeitig sammelt Holbach Materialien zur Geistes- und Ideologiegeschichte, hauptsächlich aus französischen und englischen Quellen. Hieraus ergibt sich für das Jahrzehnt von 1760 bis 1770 die beeindruckende Zahl von über 35, wegen der strengen Zensur fast ausschließlich in Holland publizierten Werken. Im vorliegenden Werk trat er ausdrücklich für den Atheismus ein und betrachtete die Natur als materialistisch-deterministisch wirkende Kette von Prozessen. Später schrieb Holbach vor allem moralphilosophische und politische Werke. Wegen der heftigen Kritik am bestehenden absolutistischen Regime und an der Kirche publizierte dieser Aufklärer anonym oder pseudonym, weshalb seine Autorschaft bei mehreren ihm zugeschriebenen Werken nicht eindeutig geklärt ist.
