        Ricerche intorno alla natura dello stile

      appresso Giuseppe Galeazzi Reg. Stampatore, 1770. Cm. 20, pp. 164 (2, correzioni). Legatura coeva in mezza pelle con titoli su tassello in marocchino rosso e fregi in oro al dorso. Qualche sporadica e trascurabile macchietta. Esemplare ben conservato. Cesare Beccaria (1738-1794), giurista ed economista milanese, fu tra i massimi rappresentanti dell'Illuminismo italiano. Quest'opera fu compilata in seguito ad alcuni studi che Beccaria pubblicò sulla rivista il Caffè, aventi oggetto la libertà dello stile rispetto alla tradizione letteraria. L'Autore teorizzò il rinnovamento dei generi letterari attraverso l'abbandono del criterio dell'aderenza a norme fisse dedotte dalle opere del passato, da ottenersi perseguendo un'indagine filosofica fondata sull'essenza dell'attività artistica. Non comune prima edizione. Cfr. Firpo II, p. 512; Gamba, 2147; Parenti, Prime edizioni italiane, p. 67; Iccu..

        Dialogues sur le commerce des bleds

      s.n, 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..

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.

A few brownspots. ¶ "Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history..... Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine... Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation... He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful" (PMM 212, the first edition 1765-69).

"L'opera fece molto scalpore: per la forma agile e divertente utilizzata per parlare di temi economici spesso assai noiosi e per l'opinione contraria alla completa libertà di commercio perseguita dai fisiocratici... Alla base del ragionamento del G. vi erano il realismo politico e la ragion di Stato... L'uscita del libro scatenò la dura, anche violenta reazione dei fisiocratici, ma anche autorevoli consensi. Tra questi quello celebre di Voltaire, che trovò i dialoghi «aussi amusants, que nos meilleurs romans, et aussi instructif que nos meilleurs livres sérieux»..." (DBI 51, 460). Goldsmiths 10640.

First edition of agricultural reformer Arthur Young's third work. "Arthur Young, like Jethro Tull, was a great agricultural reformer whose influence reached far beyond his own country. England, however, with its increased acreage of cultivated land resulting from the enclosure system, and the consequent rise of great landowners and farmers in the eighteenth century, especially welcomed innovations in agricultural methods. Arthur Young applied statistical methods to the study of agriculture, investigating both the statistics of production and the costs of this particular industry. He obtained his information from a series of extensive tours in England, Ireland and France, where he studied the state of agriculture at first hand. These journeys resulted in the publication of about two hundred and fifty books and pamphlets setting out his ideas and theories" (PMM).

        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.
