        MEDITAZIONI SULLA ECONOMIA POLITICA. Prima edizione napoletana.

      nella Stamperia di Giovanni Gravier 1771 In - 16 gr. (mm. 194x130), mz. pelle coeva, fregi e tit. oro su due tasselli al dorso, pp. (8),212. E? questa la più significativa opera del grande illuminista milanese, tradotta in varie lingue. Cfr. Melzi,II, p. 175 che cita la prima di Livorno: ?Se ne fecero da cinque a sei edizioni in vari luoghi d?Italia nell?anno medesimo, e furono ristampate con aggiunte, di nuovo, in Livorno nell?anno susseguente (1772) per cura del P. D. Paolo Frisi, amico dell?A.?. ?Il milanese Pietro Verri (1728 - 1797), economista e letterato, legò il suo nome alla costante lotta per lo sviluppo delle forze produttive della Lombardia. Egli tese a promuovere l?industria manufatturiera, come quella rurale, per creare le condizioni di una maggiore abbondanza così nei prodotti messi in vendita, come nel numero di venditori e su questa duplice abbondanza egli fondava la sua teoria del prezzo: il quale si abbassa quanto più si elevano gli altri due fattori. La copiosità dei mezzi di sussistenza determina aumento di popolazione, che è la misura della bontà di un regime. Queste idee sono svolte sistematicamente, e come regole pratiche di governo, nelle "Meditazioni sull?economia politica", e precorrono Adamo Smith nella scoperta delle leggi che presiedono alla produzione e al consumo delle ricchezze?. Così Enciclopedia Treccani,XXXV, p. 191. Fresco esemplare marginoso, ben conservato.

        Chronicon de Gestis Principum Vicecomitum ab anno MDDL usque ad Annum MCCCLXX. Accedit Opusculum ejusdem Authoris De Bello Canepiciano. Quae omnia ex Manuscripto Codice Bibliothecae Ambrosianae ediderat Ludovicus Antonius Muratorius.

      apud Federicum Agnellum,, Mediolani, 1771 - In-4° (235x185mm), pp. (2), LX, 393, (1) di errata, legatura coeva m. pelle con filetti in oro e titolo in oro su tassello verde. 2 testatine, 2 capilettera e 3 finaletti. Qualche alone e brunitura di lieve entità. Resti di ex-libris nobiliare. Curiosa etichetta ottocentesca del libraio Enrico Crotti di Novara: "cambia Libri usati, vende Carte, e Tarocchi per giuocare, Lime per i Calli, e prende Associazione delle Opere che si pubblicano in Piemonte". Una reintegrazione all'angolo inferiore esterno delle pp. I-II. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione in volume, estremamente rara, di questa importante storia di Novara e, insieme, della Lombardia viscontea tratta dal manoscritto dell'Ambrosiana di Milano; l'opera era apparsa in forma pre-originale dapprima nel "Thesaurus antiquitatum et historiarum Italiae" (IX, 6) e poi nel tomo XVI dei "Rerum Italicarum Scriptores" del Muratori, "L'A. racconta i fatti successi nella sua città natale, Novara, estendosi però fino ad abbracciare la Storia dei Visconti dall'Arcivescovo Ottone a Galeazzo (1250-1362). Dice il Tiraboschi, V, 452 che l'A. "ha una cotal sua grazia di raccontare, e una sì natia, e talvolta soverchia sincerità, che non può leggersi senza piacere". Il De Bello Canepiciano (che comincia a pag. 331 della nostra) narra la guerra scoppiata nel Canavese in questi stessi anni, e il Muratori non dubita dell'autenticità di questo libretto, "quod sine dubitatione eidem Azario debemus" bensì del correttore che Lazzaro Agostino Cotta, Notaio Novarese, indica per Ambrogio di Roccacontrata, mentre il Muratori ritiene che sia stato il Cotta stesso" (Cat. Hoepli). Precedono l'opera un elenco dei Decurioni di Novara del 1771, una "Praefatio" del Muratori, un'avvertenza ai lettori e 3 scritti storico-diplomatici dell'Azario. Molto scarse le notizie sull'Azario, che fu Ufficiale pagatore delle milizie a Bologna e a Bergamo sotto Matteo II; stando al Corio, viveva ancora nel 1385 "e non mancano alcuni che attribuendogli anche gli Annales Mediolanenses (che però il Muratori ritenne di un altro Azario) porrebbero il suo acmé nel 1238" (Hoepli).

        The Natural History of the Human Teeth.

      J. Johnson, London 1771 - An exceptionally fine copy of "the first scientific study of the teeth and the basic to all modern dentistry" (Heirs of Hippocrates).?Norman 1116; Lilly, Notable Medical Books 131; Heirs of Hippocrates 968; Garrison-Morton 3675. "Hunter’s work on the structure and diseases of the teeth began a new era for dentistry in England, placing what had been an empirical art upon a basis of careful scientific observation, and providing a foundation for further research. In the Natural history, Hunter gave detailed accounts of the anatomy and physiology of the oral cavity and jaw, introduced the modern scientific nomenclature for the teeth, established the tooth’s construction of bone, pulp and enamel, and examined the processes of tooth development in fetuses and children" (Norman). "John Hunter (1728-1793) was brought from Scotland to London as a rough, uncouth twenty year-old to learn dissection at his brother William’s school of anatomy. John showed such a striking aptitude for the new activity that, within a year, he was demonstrating the art of dissection. Although he never had a traditional medical education, he began to study surgery at the age of twenty-three under William Cheselden (q.v.). John Hunter’s superb background in comparative anatomy and pathology and his ability to relate structure to function made him one of England’s greatest surgeons and perhaps the founder of experimental surgery. Among his innovations was a technique for treating aneurysms without amputation by use of a single ligature to tie off the artery in the healthy tissue. He is said to have elevated surgery from an art to a science by showing that the proper route to the operating room led through the laboratory. In a busy life devoted to research, teaching, and the practice of surgery, Hunter found time to study the structure, development, and diseases of the teeth and to collect and arrange a series of dental specimens. Hunter’s two treatises on the teeth rank him as one of the founders of modern scientific dentistry. In the first book (1771), Hunter classified the teeth in the system still used today and was the first to state definitely that the human teeth ‘are never more than thirty-two.’ He traced their development in the fetus and the child and established their structure of pulp, bone, and enamel. At the end of the book are descriptions of devices to correct malocclusion and even suggestions for a method of transplantation. The second volume (1778) dealt with pathology. Hunter discussed the diseases of the teeth, the alveolar processes, and the gums; abscesses; and nerve pains in the jaws. He concluded that tooth decay starts on the surface of the tooth and not in the interior. Like his brother William, John founded a famous museum. Housing more than 13,000 specimens demonstrating comparative anatomy and the physiologic processes in animals and man, it was also a menagerie that contained numerous live mammals. After his death, the great Hunterian Museum became the property of the Royal College of Surgeons. It was partially destroyed by Nazi bombs in 1941. John Hunter was a student of Percivall Pott, a teacher of Edward Jenner, and, with William Heberden, a consultant on an illness of Benjamin Franklin. Originally buried in St. Martin’s-in-the Fields, his body was moved to Westminster Abbey sixty-six years after his death."

        Voyage autour du Monde, par la frégate du roi La Boudeuse, et la flûte l'Etoile; en 1766, 1767, 1768 & 1769

      Paris: chez Saillant & Nyon, 1771. Quarto, with 20 engraved charts, mostly folding, and three plates of boats; a few stains to endpapers and half-title but an excellent copy in handsome contemporary French cat's paw mottled calf, spine gilt with raised bands; contemporary armorial bookplate. Bougainville in the South Seas. First edition of Bougainville's narrative of his important voyage, the first French circumnavigation. Bougainville's description of his travels in the Pacific created enormous interest in Europe and was largely responsible for building up the romantic vision of a South Sea paradise where Rousseau's noble savage lived in a state of blissful innocence.Bougainville's expedition passed through the Strait of Magellan in January 1768. After some time looking for the mythical "Davis Land", said to be off the Chilean coast, they started on a direct route across the Pacific. They discovered the Tuamotus, sighted Tahiti in April, then visited Samoa, sailed through Melanesia, sighted the Great Barrier Reef, and passed through the Solomons and New Britain, to Batavia.Bougainville, not knowing of Wallis's stop there a year earlier, thought that he had discovered Tahiti, and his lengthy account of the island group is an interesting counterpart to Wallis's account. The vocabulary of three hundred words that he prints is the first such vocabulary of any Polynesian language to appear. 'It was only the Great Barrier Reef that prevented Bougainville landing on Australian soil. He had specifically set out to reach "New Holland" by running west from Quiros's "Espiritu Santo", but turned away from the obvious barrier presented by the reef. Had he made it, 'he would have come to the Australian coast near Cooktown, and would, likely enough, have been wrecked where Cook was wrecked two years later...' (Wood).The book was not a huge commercial success in its first edition, though its influence was immense: it has been estimated that only 1000 copies or less were published at the time, quite a small run for a voyage book at the time, but through its many subsequent editions and versions, translations and abridgements, it stayed permanently in print for at least a century. It was also the catalyst for intense discussion and philosophical argument - see for example the famous "supplement" by Diderot rejecting the notions of the "noble savage" and Taitbout's speculations on the fundamental differences between the "homme sauvage" and the "homme civilizé"

Finally the sixty-nine page list of flora and fauna is a fascinating record of known species. John Reinhold Forster sailed with James Cook on his second voyage to find terra australis as a botanist.

        Partie Occidentale De L' Empire de Russie?

      Paris: 1771. Engraved map, two sheets joined together, 27" x 20", hand colored in outline, title cartouche in center of map. Ample margins, some minor aging, fold slightly visible; otherwise very good plus to near fine. Impression is bright and clean. Rigobert Boone (1727-1795) succeeded Bellin as the Royal Cartographer of France. He produced highly respected maps during his day, and was know for his accurate detail. This is an attractive and detailed large map of Russia. Sometimes this map is presented in two separate pages with a middle border, but this one is joined together, and actually looks better than the other version. The map itself covers Russia from the Baltic Sea to Siberia, and the Bering Straits. The map also covers European Russia, and its sub divisions, and a large title cartouche is in the center of the map in the upper section. Norwich. legends.mapsofworld.com

        Le Guide du Traducteur. Or, The Entertaining and Instructive Exercises Rendered into French.

      London: Printed for B. Law. 1771 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 12mo, 163 x 98 mms., pp. [iv], 210 [211 - 212 adverts], contemporary sheepskin (very worn); lacks end-papers, edge of title-page chipped, lower corners of first few leaves chewed, lower corners of last three leaves also chewed, with slight loss of text. Not the most wonderful copy, but uncommon. Jean-Baptiste Perrin (fl. 1767 - 1798) was born in France and later emigrated to Dublin. He began publishing books about learning French, and his earliest work seems to have been Essai sur l'origine et l'antiquité des langues, which was published anonymously in 1767. His Entertaining and Instructive Exercises, alluded to in the title, was first published in the early 1770s, and at least another ten editions appeared during the 18th century. ESTC N2408 locates only the copy at Princeton.

      Philadelphia: William Evitt, [1771].. [48]pp. plus fourteen unprinted leaves. 24mo. Contemporary marbled wrappers. Wrappers lightly worn. One contemporary manuscript inscription on one unprinted leaf, a few manuscript annotations in margins of printed pages. Light age-toning, offsetting on blank leaves. A near fine copy. An extremely rare colonial-era Pennsylvania almanac compiled and published by William Evitt. Drake records copies at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the American Antiquarian Society, but the AAS does not list this edition in their online catalogue. AAS/NAIP records the ten previous annual issues of this almanac, but not this edition, perhaps the last published with this title. However, AAS does hold a copy lacking the last leaf. This copy is in contemporary wrappers and has fourteen additional blank leaves, only one of which has a single inscription ("Thursday 10th [December] came Nancy"). A few contemporary annotations, however, are found in the margins of the printed text. In addition to the calendar, the almanac provides an extensive list of the "representatives, sheriffs, coroners, commissioners, and assessors throughout the province of Pennsylvania." Information on court sessions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and Virginia is also included. A rare surviving copy of perhaps the last issue of this popular Pennsylvania almanac.

        Underrättelse om barns sjukdomar och deras bote-medel [Information on the illnesses of children and their cures]. Tredje uplagan, något tillökt och förbättrad.

      1771 - Stockholm, Wennberg et Nordström, 1771. 8:o. Engraved title,(2),540,(34) pp.Contemporary half calf, worn, with raised bands, brown label and sprinkled edges. Contemporary numbering on front pastedown. Small stain on fore edge which affects the outer margin on pp. 27-100. A few stains in the upper margin on pp. 129-32 and 384, and a wax stain in the text on pp. 184-85.Waller 8216. "Underrättelse om barns sjukdomar" is a classic work on pediatrics, which at the time was without parallel in its comprehensiveness and sound judgement - before the end of the 18th century it had been translated into eight languages. The work was first published in the form of short essays in the almanachs published by the Swedish Academy of Sciences between 1753 and 1771. The first edition in book form appeared in 1764 and this third edition - once again published by the Academy - is strictly speaking the second in this form. It is much enlarged with the almanach essays published after 1764, among other things. The edition is concluded with Abraham Argillander's "Försökt sätt, at lära dumbar läsa och tala" [An attempt to teach the deaf and dumb to read and speak]. The Linnaean disciple Argillander (1722-1800) has been called the first Scandinavian deaf teacher and in his essay he presents the results of his attempts to teach his deaf and dumb brother-in-law Wolfgang Henricus Amadeus Helsingius to speak, read and write.

      Leipzig, Weidmanns Erben und Reich, 1771.. . Seltene erste Ausgabe des Erstlingswerks der La Roche, das sofort begeistert aufgenommen wurde. Dieser wohl bedeutendste Frauenroman des 18. Jahrhunderts wird auch als der erste psychologische Roman der deutschen Literatur bezeichnet. Formal und inhaltlich abhängig von Richardsons Briefromanen (z. B. 'Clarissa', 1748) sind hier - anders als beim englischen Vorbild - erzählerische Partien eingefügt, vor allem aber klingt ein neuer Ton in der Schilderung der Charaktere an: Die Typen werden mit alltäglichen Zügen individualisiert und mit empfindsamer Einfühlung dargestellt. C. M. Wieland, La Roches Vetter und Jugendliebe, begleitete das Buch mit einer Vorrede, Herder und Goethe, dessen 'Leiden des jungen Werthers' (1774) sie beeinflusste, nahmen es anerkennend auf. Sophie von La Roche (1731-1807) war die Großmutter von Clemens Brentano und Bettina v. Arnim. - Unterschiedlich gebräunt oder stockfleckig, die Deckel stärker berieben, gutes Exemplar. - Goed.

        VOYAGE AUTOUR DU MONDE, PAR LA FRÉGATE DU ROI LA BOUDEUSE ET LA FLUTE L'ÉTOILE, EN 1766, 1767, 1768 & 1769.

      Paris: Saillant & Nyon, 1771. - [8],417,[3]pp. with twenty-three maps and plates. Half-title. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt, leather label. Minor shelf wear. Small contemporary bookplate of the Duc de Decres on front pastedown. Very minor foxing to the margins of the half-title and last leaf. A remarkably bright and clean copy, fine. First edition of this important work. Bougainville first undertook an expedition to the Falkland Islands and Patagonia, at his own expense, to secure them for French colonization. To avoid possible conflict due to Spain's envy of this acquisition, France gave up the territory to her. The narrative of that expedition was related in THE HISTORY OF A VOYAGE TO THE MALOUINE ISLANDS. (Paris, 1770). After delivering the Falklands to Spain, Bougainville was ordered across the Pacific to the East Indies, and then home. The completion of the three- year voyage marked the first official French circumnavigation and inspired much French interest in the Pacific islands. The party collected abundant natural history information concerning the regions visited; a chapter on the Falklands gives the history of their settlement as well. The expedition stopped at many South Sea islands, among them Tahiti, and included is a long section on that island as well as a vocabulary of the natives. Bougainville was in Buenos Aires when the order arrived for the expulsion of the Jesuits from Paraguay, which he describes in detail. An extraordinary capstone to this remarkable voyage was that Bougainville lost only seven out of two hundred men. "Bouganville also touched at the Moluccas, Batavia, and Mauritius before he arrived once again in France in 1769. Although Bougainville made only a few important discoveries, he created a great deal of interest among the French in the Pacific, which resulted in the voyages of Marc-Joseph Marion de Fresne and Jean Francois de La Perouse. The largest island in the Solomons and two straits in the Pacific bear his name, and the tropical flowering vine called bougainvillea was also named for him. Bougainville later took part in the American Revolution, survived the French Revolution, and was made a senator and count of the Empire by Napoleon I. Bougainville's accounts of Pacific Islanders in this work echoed Jean Jacques Rousseau's concepts of the "noble savage," and inspired Denis Diderot to write his denunciation of European contact with indigenous peoples" - Hill. This copy belonged to Admiral, later Duc, Denis Decrès, Napoleon’s Minister for the Navy and the Colonies from 1801 to 1814, with his bookplate on the front pastedown. Decrès was the Minister directly responsible for Nicholas Baudin's voyage to Australia. Therefore, there could have been much instructive value in the present volume for Decrès, who perhaps used Bougainville's experiences with regard to Baudin, to assist in the various enquiries into voyage events, many of them relating to Baudin’s unfortunate command. A highly distinguished French naval provenance for one of the country's legendary travel narratives. HILL 163. SABIN 6864. O'REILLY & REITMAN 283. BORBA DE MORAES, p.115. DU RIETZ 117. COX I, p.55.

      Hamburg, Johann Joachim Christoph Bode, 1771.. . Erste öffentliche Sammelausgabe der Gedichte, von Klopstock selbst herausgegeben. Sie begründete das bis heute maßgebliche Klopstock-Bild, dass den Lyriker gegenüber dem "Messias-Dichter" bevorzugt. Klopstock unterzog die Oden "einer Revision; einige schied er aus, andere überarbeitet er, und zwar nach Maßgabe der dichtungstheoretischen Überlegungen, mit denen er zwanzig Jahre lang seine dichterischen Arbeiten reflektiert hatte. ... Klopstocks Odendichtung übte einen nachhaltigen Einfluß auf Hölderlin, Rilke sowie besonders George und seinen Kreis aus" (KNLL). Das Werk wurde in Bodes Hamburger Druckerei auf gestreiftem römischem Velinpapier gedruckt und zeichnet sich durch schöne typographische Gestaltung und sorgfältigen Druck aus. Die Seiten 221/222 und 245/246 als Kartonblätter. Gewidmet ist das Buch Andreas Peter v. Bernstorff, dem standhaften liberalen Außenminister Dänemarks ab 1773. Er gilt als Wohltäter Dänemarks in wirtschaftlicher wie politischer Hinsicht. Besonders ist ihm die Befreiung der Bauern in Dänemark von persönlichen und wirtschaftlichen Fesseln zu danken. Auch an der Aufhebung der Leibeigenschaft in Schleswig-Holstein hatte er maßgeblichen Anteil. - Kaum fleckig, schönes Exemplar. In diesem prachtvollen Zustand sehr selten. - Goedeke IV 1, 169, 7. Burkhardt/Nicolai 67. Boghardt/Schmidt 44.

Finally the sixty-nine page list of flora and fauna is a fascinating record of known species. John Reinhold Forster sailed with James Cook on his second voyage to find terra australis as a botanist.

        Naturlig og oeconomisk Beskrivelse over Hølands Præstegield i Agershuus-Stift i Norge.

      - Trykt i det Kongl. Universitets Bogtrykkerie hos A.H. Godiches Eferleverske ved F.C. Godiche, Kiøbenhavn 1771. 8vo. (26)+334+(1) sider, inklusiv tilegnelsesbladet til Struensee. Med et udfoldeligt kort og en udfoldelig tavle. Indbundet i et samtidigt helbind af flammet kavelskind og rygforgyldning. Med rødt snit. Bindet med let slitage på hjørner og kanter, rygtitelfeltet let frønnet. Gammelt navn på titelbladet (den danske præst Jacob Christian Lindberg). * Norsk-fødte Reier Gjellebøls (1737-1803) sjældne topografiske og landøkonomiske beskrivelse over sin fødeegn Høland. Gjellebøl var en del af brødremenigheden og fik sit uddannelse i København, inden han overtog et præstekald i Valle i Norge. Gjellebøl udgav bogen i efteråret 1771 og tilegnede smigrende sit værk til Tvillingrigernes egentlige magthaver Johann Friedrich Struensee, - 'men da den almægtige minister blev styrtet faa uker senere, skyndte G. sig at be de nye magthavere om tilgivelse for sin "feil" og at faa dedikationen fjernet fra hele restoplaget af boken.' (Norsk Biografisk Leksikon). Dette eksemplar er helt komplet, med det prekære tilegnelsesblad bevaret.** Et af de få eksempler på skrifter tilegnet Struensee, og utvivlsomt en publikation, han har sat pris på, i og med den jo afspejler oplysningstidens nyttebetonede indsamling af data og viden. I dansk historie glider Struensees oprigtigt mente og filosofisk funderede reformiver i baggrunden til frodel for rollen som lykkerider og skørlevner.

        Tapissier. [Tapestry-Weaving]

      1771. DIDEROT. Tapestry-weaving, in 3 parts: 7 pp., 45 plates, of which 11 are double-page.From vol. 8. Folio, bound in half terra-cotta morocco over salmon cloth boards, gilt.Tapissier, with a view of the Boutique, and the many products available therein, including curtains, bedspreads, upholstery, and so forth. With two additional suites, entitled Tapisserie de basse-lisse des Gobelins and Tapisserie de haute-lisse des Gobelins, which illustrate the practice of the famous Gobelins tapestry factories. These tapestries were decorated with pictorial subjects; painted; embroidered; woven in colours, gold, and silver thread, and so forth. Alan Summerly Cole distinguishes between the practices of Gobelins and Beauvais: "At the Gobelins, the warp threads are stretched in frames standing vertically (high warp or haute lisse): at Beauvais in frames placed horizontally with the ground (low warp or basse lisse)."This suite of plates and text derives from the great French eighteenth-century Encyclopédie edited by Denis Diderot and Jean Le Rond D'Alembert. The Diderot & D'Alembert Encyclopédie remains "A monument in the history of European thought; the acme of the age of reason; a prime motivating force in undermining the Ancien Régime and in heralding the French Revolution; a permanent source for all aspects of eighteenth-century civilization..." (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        Nouvelle iconologie historique ou attributs hieroglyphiques, qui ont pour objets les quatre élémens, les quatres saisons, les quatre parties du monde et les différentes complexions de l'homme

      Paris: Chez Jacques François Chereau Fils, Graveur et Marchand D'estampes, Rue St. Jacques, 1771. Title, Table Indicative, 110 plates, and 39 pages of text on 21 leaves, ALL ENTIRELY ENGRAVED. Folio. Later calf with original covers of mottled calf inlaid to front and rear, upper cover gilt-stamped "ODIOT Orfèvre". [Jean-Baptiste-Claude Odiot (1763-1850) was the goldsmith to the family of the Emperor Napoleon]. Occasinal stains, mostly marginal, but altogether a very good copy, with a remarkable provenance. Title, Table Indicative, 110 plates, and 39 pages of text on 21 leaves, ALL ENTIRELY ENGRAVED. Folio. French architect, one of the creators of the Louis Seize style, as the ornament in his Iconologie, featuring Greek keys, garlands, and much other Classical ornament, demonstrates. He also published a treatise on the five Orders, and designed two hôtels at 58-60 Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, Paris (1776-83), and his ICONOLOGIE HISTORIQUE is a veritable encyclopedie of Baroque icons and symbols. The 'Table Explicative" advertises 18 "Cahiers" of six leaves each on a variety of themes and subjects developed here, which are available separately from the publisher ("qui se vendent séparément"). A second part of that suite was also formed (referred to misleadingly in the Berlin Catalogue as "IIeme Volume") which continues the series of engravings available in 24 more "cahiers" - in other words, Cahiers 19 - 43 - also, presumably, sold separaately. The absence of any of the 43 cahiers should in no way,we believe, be taken as an indication of incompleteness. Tipped in and laid down at the back is a folio plate, "La Sphere Artificielle" [showing three globes: Terrestrial, Celestial & Armillary Globes]. Paris Chez Desnos, Rus St. Jacques, 1760.
