MEIBOM Johann Heidrich
S.t., London, 1770. In-24 (90x50 mm.), pp. 78. Raffinata legatura in marocchino rosso foncé firmata "Lortic", dorso a nervi, titolo e data topica e cronica incisi in oro al dorso, tagli e ampia merlatura interna dorate, segnacolo serico tricolore. Splendido esempare di quest'opera di argomento estremamente originale (il cui sottotitolo recita pertinentemente "rarioris argumenti libellus"); essa è incentrata sull'uso antico della fustigazione e della somministrazione di varie percosse sulle reni e sulle natiche durante l'amplesso amoroso, pratiche che favorirebbero, a giudizio dell'autore, la moltiplicazione della libido così come la discesa del seme maschile nel ventre della donna. E' questo considerato il primo trattato che esamina il sadismo sessuale in tutti i suoi aspetti. Mercier de Compiegne (il traduttore francese del "Vendemmiatore" del Tansillo e di tante altre bizzarrei), ne fece nel 1792 un'edizione in lingua ultramontana. Bibliografia: Bondy, pp.27-28: "Of special interest". Speilmann, 360: "An exceedingly rare miniature edition of Johann Heinrich Meibom's famous book on the use of flagellation in medicine and sexual intercourse". Gay-Lemonnyer I, 807 e III, 1227 (per e.o.). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

TAYLOR, Isaac & Josiah, TAYLOR, Josiah, PRIESTLEY & WEALE, and WEALE, John, Booksellers & Publishers
From 1770 to 1834 in High Holborn, London, the Taylor dynasty published and distributed the architectural and engraved design books which established for Great Britain the correct styles of building, furnishing, and decorating "rural retreats" and "noblemen's seats." The publishing house itself was established by the engraver Isaac Taylor (1730-1807), in 1770 at the former premises of A. and Henry Webley. Isaac retired from active association with the firm about 1787. His third son Josiah (1761-1834), took over the business and followed the directions established by his father. The business, which became known as the Architectural Library in 1787, established a virtual monopoly in this field. As the Industrial Revolution took hold, the firm added more titles on civil engineering, machinery, railroads, and the manufacture of cast iron. In 1819, a new competitor arrived on the scene: John Weale (1791-1862), who was taken into partnership by the widow of another publisher, George Priestley. Weale's interest in architecture led to a rapid expansion of the firm's activity in this area. Soon, Priestley and Weale became the other leading architectural publishers of the period. Following Josiah Taylor's death in 1834, Taylor's Architectural Library was purchased by Weale, who rapidly expanded the business, publishing extensively on all aspects of architecture and engineering. The firm was continued following Weale's death in 1862 by his second son, James Watt Weale (1843-77). This collection of catalogues was patiently formed over a 45-year period. All are rare. … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOURCET (Jean).
1770. 575 x 936 mm. Très belle et grande carte figurant la côte de Coromandel, au sud-est de l'Inde, gravée par Jean-Baptiste Croisey. Elle s'étend entre Paliacate au nord, aujourd'hui Pulicat, et le Cap Comorin, à l'extrême sud de l'Inde, en passant par les villes de Madras, aujourd'hui renommée Chennai, et Pondichéry ; à l'ouest, elle s'étend jusqu'à Binguelour, actuelle Bangalore. La carte montre également le nord de l'île de Ceylan, avec la baie de Trinquemalay. Le nord est placé à droite de la carte. Elle est ornée d'un cartouche de titre décoré de la vue d'un temple, et de 19 vignettes de formats divers, montrant les citadelles de Bombay (Mumbai), Negapatan (Nagapattinam), Tranquebar, Gondelour, Trichnapaly (Tiruchchirappalli), Pondichéry (Chennai), Gingy (Gingee), Masulipatam (Machilipatnam), Visigapatam (Visakhapatnam), et Calcutta. La carte a été dressée en 1770 par Jean Bourcet, peu après la Guerre de Sept Ans, qui opposa la Grande-Bretagne à la France sur plusieurs continents et théâtres d'opérations, entre 1756 et 1763. En Inde, la guerre se déroula principalement sur la côte de Coromandel, où la Compagnie des Indes Orientaleset laBritish East India Company possédaient des comptoirs, essentiellement à Madras et à Pondichéry. Trois combats sont indiqués en mer, tandis que sur terre, les lieux où se sont déroulées les batailles sont indiqués par une croix, avec le nom de l'officier français qui commandait, et une lettre indiquant l'issue de la bataille : G pour gagnée, P pour perdue, C pour canonade, et CR pour canonade et retraite.

TACHIBANA, Minko
Numerous fine woodcuts with stencilled color throughout. 20 folded leaves; 15 folded leaves. Two vols. Large 8vo, later silk covered wrappers, new stitching. Tokyo: 1770.First edition; a book of considerable beauty and rarity. This work depicts twenty-eight craftsmen, each at work in a different traditional profession; it is a famously beautiful book merging illustration with technology and poetry. Our copy comes from the celebrated library of Japanese books formed by Donald and Mary Hyde (her sale, Christie's New York, 7 October 1988, lot 123).Tachibana, while not as famous as Sharaku and Utamaro, was active as an illustrator in the second half of the 18th century, the period during which the ukiyo-e prints reached their zenith of their artistic and technical excellence. Tachibana, originally an embroiderer of decorative designs on fabrics in the Kansai area, felt he was better suited as an artist and began to make woodblock prints in the manner of Sukenobu, who had become famous for his Kansai-style ukiyo-e. After mastering this style, Minko moved to Tokyo and adopted the very different "beautiful women" style of Harunobu. Becoming well-known for his book illustrations, Tachibana issued a series of books between 1751 and 1771 which enjoyed considerable success.This beautifully illustrated book pictures twenty-eight crafts: hatter, mirror polisher, carpenter, swordsmith, armorer, cordmaker, maker of hairdress ties, weaver, papermaker, engraver, maker of bamboo blinds, quivermaker, basketmaker, ballmaker, glassblower, fanmaker, koto (Japanese harp) maker, maskmaker … [Click Below for Full Description]

Belzunce, Juan Javier de Goyeneche, Marqués de
This rare, unpublished manuscript documents the story of a chaplaincy established in Mexico by Juan Ignacio María de Castorena Ursúa y Goyeneche (1668-1733), bishop of Yucatán, a great friend of the Golden Age writer Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and founder of the Gaceta de México. Doña María Gallo de Escalada, the widow of a royal treasury official in Mexico, died in 1709 leaving Castorena as her executor. In accordance to her wishes, Castorena founded the chaplaincy to say masses for her husband, Don Martín de Posada y Agurto, and herself, and endowed it with the substantial sum of 8,000 pesos. This volume provides an interesting illustration of the manner in which such chaplaincies were established, for what reasons and how they were managed in the long-term. It includes, among others, a copy of the founding contract in 1714 but the greater part of it relates to the main intention that led to the drawing up of this manuscript which was to set out the claim of Juan Javier de Goyeneche y Indaburu, third Marqués de Belzunce and second Conde de Saceda (1744-1788), to the lucrative chaplaincy in 1770. In 1769 Fernando Suárez de Estrada, who had inherited the chaplaincy in 1757, died and although he left an heir the law required that all potential legal claimants come forward. An edict, therefore, was posted in Madrid which is here transcribed in full. The Marqués de Belzunce was a significant figure in Madrid society where, for example, in 1773 he would sell one of the family properties, the Palacio de Goyeneche, to King Carlos III to house the collections … [Click Below for Full Description]

MOROZZI FERDINANDO.
Cambiagi, 1770. In 8° (mm 215x145); pagg. VI, 87, con tre tavole f.t. ripiegate incise in rame. Cartonato d'attesa coevo con titolo manoscritto al dorso.Prima edizione. Si tratta della prima opera specifica sulla costruzione di edifici rurali per persone e animali. Nelle epoche precedenti, infatti, a partire da Vitruvio e Columella, l'architettura rurale occupava solo una piccola sezione dei vari trattati di agriconomia. Morozzi, al contrario, fornisce indicazioni per la costruzione di fattorie nelle diverse tipologie di territorio, per l'escavazione di pozzi e cisterne, per l'individuazione dell'acqua e sui metodi per determinarne la qualità. Inoltre sono indicate le maniere per costruire stalle, ovili, piccionaie e cantine per la conservazione del vino. Le tre belle tavole che corredano l'opera illustrano, nell'ordine, "Disegno per una casa da contadini per un podere di montagna", "Taglio e pianta delle stalle e capre e stallino degli agnellini" e pianta e sezione di un pozzo con "purgatoio" e "piletta". L'opera è stata ristampata nel 1807 e, in edizione anastatica, nel 1967.Ferdinando Morozzi (1723-1785) è stato un ingegnere idraulico, matematico, architetto e cartografo toscano. Ebbe incarico ufficiale di studiare e risolvere le improvvise piene dell'Arno e di disegnare una grande carta del Granducato di Toscana. Fu membro dell'Accademia dei Georgofili che contribuì ad allineare l'arretrata agricoltura toscana con gli standard dei paesi europei. Ottimo esemplare con barbe. Qualche fioritura.

MOROZZI FERDINANDO (1723-1785).
In Firenze, nella stamperia di S.A.R. per Gaetano Cambiagi, 1770. In - 8ø; VI, 87 pp., 3 tavole ripiegate f.t.; legatura coeva in tutto cartone alla rustica. Bell'esemplare a pieni margini con barbe, minime fioriture. Prima edizione. Questa Š la prima monografia che si occupa espressamente di architettura rurale. Per decenni rimase il testo base sull'argomento. Trent'anni dopo anche architetti stranieri come Lasteyrie e Heine pubblicarono contributi all'architettura rurale basandosi su questo trattato. L'opera si occupa di case contadine di pianura, montagna, collina, di stalle, frantoi, pozzi, cisterne e cantine, in particolare quelle adatte ad ospitare la produzione e la conservazione del vino. Le tre tavole in rame ripiegate in fine, incise dal Canocchi da disegno del Morozzi stesso, mostrano piante e spaccati delle varie costruzioni. F. Morozzi membro dell'Accademia dei Georgofili al tempo della direzione del Montelatici, fu esponente non secondario di quel gruppo di intellettuali illuministi toscani che cercarono, anche con successo, di dare un nuovo impulso riformatore all'agricoltura e alla manifattura delle loro terre. Cicognara 944. Niccoli, pp. 266 - 267: "Norme saggissime e assai rispondenti agli attuali concetti architettonici trovansi nell'opera di Ferdinando Morozzi". Pazzini (Bibliografia Bacchica), p. 496.

MANUSCRIT DE KABBALE] - Intitulé
S.l., n.d., (2e partie du 18e s.), 1770. pl. vélin moderne sous emboitage cart. Bel exemplaire. Rare manuscrit de le seconde moitié du 18e siècle consacré à la Kabbale des Psaumes. Il est assez proche du Manuscrit de la BNF ref. FR 14784 intitulé "La vraye Cabale mistérieuse et divine pour l'intelligence des 150 psaumes de. David.". C'est vers la fin du Moyen Âge que se développa une pratique "magique" des Psaumes attribués au Roi David. Selon les lois de la kabbale, chacun des 150 psaumes détient une vertu agissante particulière. Les juifs de toutes origines ont suivi le conseil du Zohar à faire usage du Livre des Psaumes comme une source de la prière. En effet, les Tehillim (psaumes, louanges) fournissent une prière appropriée pour chaque occasion, ce que les anciens appelaient une "Merveille de Dieu". De fait la puissance magique des psaumes était considérée comme incommensurable. Ainsi, pour obtenir une grâce du Seigneur, il ne suffisait pas de chanter le psaume indiqué, il fallait aussi effectuer ce qui permettait d'être en adéquation afin d'attirer sur soi la puissance du Nom qui y est relatif. A chaque psaume est donc associé une signature angélique particulière. Le plus ancien texte hébreu sur cette pratique magique le "Shimmush Tehilim" ("sur l'utilisation des Psaumes") date du 10e siècle. Un rare document de magie kabbalistique. in 4°, sur papier bleuté d'une fine écriture penchée, avec les dessins des signatures angéliques in t. pour chaque psaume, [Attributes: Hard Cover]
