        Voyage Litteraire de la Grece, ou Lettres sur les Grecs, Anciens et Mo

      1771. GREECE - Literary Voyage. Voyage Litteraire de la Grèce, ou Lettres sur les Grecs anciens et modernes, avec un parallèle de leurs moeurs. By Pierre-Augustin Guys. Two volumes. xvi, 420; iv, 244 pp. 12mo., 160 x 95 mm, bound in French contemporary beige half calf, light brown and pale green spine labels. Paris: chez la veuve Duchesne, 1771. Scarce First Edition of this unusual "literary" travel book to Greece, Turkey, and Italy by Pierre-Augustin Guys (1720-1799), physican of Lyons and member of the Academy of Sciences and Belles-Lettres of Marseille. "He may be said to have been the first folklorist who directed his attention to the Orient. His work is written in such an agreeable style, his observations so delicate and his comparisons so subtle that it makes excellent reading even today" (Iorga, as quoted in Cox). "Guys had spent more than 30 years in the Levant engaged in commercial pursuits, having been sent in 1739 to the business house of his uncles in Constantinople. His literary and antiquarian studies led him to the conclusion that the modern Greeks were direct descendants of the ancients, and his book is full of comparisons between the ancient and modern Greeks on every conceivable subject. It is in the form of letters. This successful and popular book played an important part in developing philhellenic sentiments in France" (Leonora Navari, Blackmer Catalogue). Half-title of volume I slightly spotted, otherwise in fine state. Cox I, 231. Cf. Blackmer 769 (third edition).

        Cours d'architecture ou traite de la decoration

      1771. BLONDEL, J.-F. Cours d'Architecture, ou traité de la décoration, distribution & construction des bâtiments... continue [vols. 5-6] par M. Patte. Together nine volumes. Text (vols. 1-6): xxxiv, 478, [2]; [4], lxiv, 468, [4]; [4], cii, [2], 460; [4], cxiv, [2], 432; xxxii, 504; xxviii, 520 pp. Plates (vols. 7-9): title, 2 ff., 22 plates, title, 93 plates; title, 1 f., plates 1-40, 40bis, 41-73, half-title, title, 51 plates; 1 f., 85 plates, 1 f., plates 86-136. Altogether illustrated with 377 engraved plates, of which 89 are folding and 38 are double-page. 8vo., 201 x 120 mm, spines in early twentieth-century French calf over eighteenth-century French marbled paper boards, red labels, compartments gilt. Paris: Desaint, 1771-1773, and 1777. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of the 'Petit Blondel,' the most influential and authoritative textbook on architecture of its day. "The century's most eminent and prolific author [on architecture] was Jacques-François Blondel, an energetic practitioner and teacher (who apparently was no relation to his great seventeenth-century namesake). His Architecture française was published in four volumes between 1752 and 1756. It was followed by his nine-volume Cours d'architecture which appeared between 1771 and 1777. This included lectures he had given in his own school of arts since 1750, and at the Académie Royale d'Architecture since 1756. The Cours d'architecture marked a move away from the orders and proportions which had preoccupied François Blondel a century before, towards the emulation of good examples from recent French architecture... Jacques-François Blondel chose to present a great array of building types and decorative features, echoing his massive survey of the French achievement in Architecture française and stressing the variety of external appearance that could be achieved within classical proportions... Perhaps the most novel feature of Blondel's lectures was his interest in the houses of the middle class. Here, Blondel made a strong call for proportion and simplicity. He wanted decoration to be reserved for palaces and hôtels. He nevertheless hoped that a range of harmonious domestic styles could be developed for Paris, with each district having its own character" (Anthony Sutcliff, Paris: An Architectural History, pp. 48-49). In 1743 Blondel opened the first independent school of architecture in France; it was to become a major center for training the leaders of the neoclassical movement, including Sir William Chambers, Pierre Patte, Desprez, Boullée, and Ledoux. After Blondel's death (in 1774) the work was completed by Pierre Patte, his disciple and former student. The work is illustrated with 377 engraved plates (many folding), mainly designs by contemporary architects. For an extensive assessment of the work, see especially Robin Middleton's "J.F. Blondel and the Cours d'Architecture," in International Society of Architectural Historians (December 1959). A fine copy. Fowler 51. Berlin Katalog 2429. Millard, French 29.

        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).

Joannis Sajnovics (János Sajnovics de Tordas et Káloz; 1733-1785) was a Hungarian linguist, the "father of comparative linguistics". He was the first who demonstrated the genetic relationship between the Hungarian, Sámi (Lapp) and Finnish with grammatical comparisons, like correspondances in suffixes, declension of nouns, vers aspect, causatives, tense, pronouns and pronominal suffixes, parts of speech, and particles. His work became very influential and his methods were followed frequently in later linguistic works. Entries of ownership on flyleaf and title page. Binding worn, otherwise in good condition.

        A Journal of a Voyage round the World in His Majesty's Ship Endeavour, in the years 1768, 1769, 1770 and 1771; Undertaken in Pursuit of Natural Knowledge, at the Desire of the Royal Society: containing All the various Occurrences of the Voyage, with Descriptions of several new discovered Countries in the Southern Hemisphere; and Accounts of their Soil and Productions; and of many Singularities in the Structure, Apparel, Customs, Manners, Policy, Manufactures, &c. of their Inhabitants

      London, 1771. Quarto; an excellent copy in contemporary tree calf, rebacked. The first published account of Cook's first voyage. The earliest published account of Cook's first voyage to the Pacific, containing the first printed account of the east coast of Australia. Published anonymously some two months after the return of the Endeavour and nearly two years before Hawkesworth's official account of the voyage, its hasty publication even predated the naming of Botany Bay, here called Sting-ray Bay as Cook had originally christened it.This is a good copy of the first edition of the first of a series of so-called "surreptitious accounts" of Cook's various voyages to appear in print: the Admiralty found it practically impossible to enforce their ruling that no unofficial publications should pre-empt the official and lengthier accounts of the voyages, naturally much slower in the press. It first appeared with a spurious leaf of dedication to Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander, completely unauthorised and designed to add authenticity; prompt legal action against the publishers forced removal of the leaf during publication, and this copy is an example of the more frequently seen second issue after removal of the leaf. This copy which has the bookplate of Lord Holland was likely acquired on publication by the first Baron Holland, Henry Fox, a senior Whig politician, at one time Secretary for War and Paymaster of the Forces. The father of Charles James Fox, he had a considerable library at Holland House in London.The identity of the author has never been confirmed beyond doubt, though the great Cook scholar Beaglehole has demonstrated that the American sailor James Magra is the likeliest candidate. If Magra was indeed the author, his illicit sale of his journal to the publishers might well have confirmed Cook's opinion of him: 'one of those gentlemen, frequently found on board Kings Ships, that can very well be spared, or to speake more planer good for nothing...'. He was a New Yorker and a loyalist. If it was indeed Magra, whatever his skipper and the authorities may have thought of him, he did succeed in getting the first description of the voyage into print.

Edición original del primer viaje francés de circunnavegación, comandado por Louis Antoine de Bougainville, matemático, hombre de letras, militar, marino y, por fin, modelo de hombre del iluminismo francés, tal como fue considerado por sus maestros Diderot y D’Alembert. Viaje altamente prestigioso por el carácter científico de su propósito y organización como célebre por sus cruciales descubrimientos en el Pacífico y por haber apuntalado el mito europeo del “buen salvaje”, a partir de la observación y convivencia con los aborígenes de Tahití, paraíso recuperado del que Bougainville había tomado posesión en nombre de Luis XV y al que bautizó como “Nueva Citerea”. Con anterioridad a este viaje, Bougainville ya había visitado el Río de la Plata camino hacia las islas Malvinas (denominación que le pertenece), donde estableció una colonia francesa fundando Port St. Louis, y al que debió regresar en carácter de embajador para restituir las islas a la corona española. El trayecto americano de Bougainville durante la circunvalación comporta un pasaje por Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Rio de Janeiro, islas Malvinas, Estrecho de Magallanes y Tierra del Fuego. De todos ellos ofrece detalladas descripciones, plenas de precisas observaciones que van desde lo anecdótico hasta lo científico, pasando por lo histórico, lo costumbrista, lo social y lo administrativo. Un capítulo especial está consagrado a las misiones del Paraguay y a la expulsión de los jesuitas, hecho histórico que se produjo durante su estancia en Buenos Aires. Viaje que marca un hito en la historia de las exploraciones y que reviste particular interés dentro de los reconocimientos tempranos de la región rioplatense. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

L'universalité des connaissances de Rozier le rendait prope à ce genre de travail" (Du Petit-Thouars in Michaud, Biographie Universelle, XXXIX, p. 207). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Encyclopaedia Britannica; or, a Dictionary of Arts and Sciences compiled upon a new plan

      Edinburgh: for A. Bell and C. Macfarquhar; and sold by Colin Macfarquhar,, 1771. In which The different Sciences and Arts are digested into distinct Treatises or Systems; and The various Technical Terms, &c. are explained as they occur in the order of the Alphabet... By a Society of Gentlemen in Scotland. 3 volumes, quarto (262 × 200 mm). Contemporary reversed calf, skilfully rebacked to style with red and black morocco labels. Complete with half-titles, 160 engraved plates, 3 folding chemistry tables, and folding Grammatical table in vol. 2. Neat ownership inscription I. Balmanno dated July 1st 1791 to volume III, page 115. Corners skilfully restored, a few short tears, occasional foxing and the odd stain, plate 61 torn at head and frayed along fore edge slightly affecting the image. Withal a very good set. First edition of the "most famous of all the encyclopaedias in the English language" (PMM), which first appeared in one hundred serialized parts in 1768?"71. "The remarkable history of the Encyclopaedia Britannica had its beginnings in the collaboration of three Scots [possibly the sum total of the 'Society of Gentlemen'] who were inspired by the stormy triumph of the Encyclopédie of Diderot, and by their desire to improve on its shortcomings. Andrew Bell (1726?"1809) was an engraver, Colin Macfarquhar (c.1745?"93) a printer, and William Smellie (1740?"95) a printer and a scholar. All three lived in Edinburgh. The new encyclopaedia was to be compiled on a completely new plan: the principal subjects ?" some forty-five, all distinguished by titles printed across the whole page ?" were to be supported by another thirty lengthy articles, the whole being contained within one alphabetical sequence interspersed with numerous brief entries, supported by references where appropriate to the principal subjects. Some of the articles, notably those on medical subjects, extended to well over one hundred pages each. Thus, the editor attempted to have the best of both worlds: easy reference to individual items, terms and minor topics, combined with major treatment of important sciences and arts" (Collison, Encyclopaedias: their History throughout the Ages, p. 138). As Smellie notes in his preface: "Utility ought to be the principal intention of very publication." Contributors to this first edition included many of the leading lights of the Scottish Enlightenment movement such as David Hume, James Balfour, George Campbell, Lord Kames, and Sir James Steuart. The long article, nearly 50 pages in length, on bookkeeping, is by John Mair.

         L'Art de former les jardins modernes ou l'art des jardins anglois. Traduit de l'Anglais. A quoi le traducteur a ajouté un discours préliminaire sur l'origine de l'art, des notes sur le texte & une description détaillée des jardins de Stowe...

      à Paris, chez Charles-Antoine Jombert, 1771, in 8°, de 1f. LXIV-404pp., ill. d'un grand plan gravé se dépl. de jardins de Stowe, cart. papier marbré moderne genre ancien, rousseurs aux premiers et derniers ff. sinon bon exemplaire. Première édition française dans la traduction du botaniste François de Paule Latapie (1739-1823) qui a ajouté une description détaillée des jardins de Stowe. Thomas Whately (1728-1772), secrétaire de Lord Grenville, chancelier de l'Echiquier, eut donc la possibilité de fréquenter de près les jardins de Stowe House. Son traité est d'importance et se situe avant ceux de Walpole et Repton, établissant ainsi l'esthétique du jardin à l'anglaise, privilégiant les points de vue pittoresques au sein d'une imitation artistique de la nature. Tomas Jefferson fut très influencé par le traité Whately, dont il disait "While his descriptions in point of style are models of perfect elegance and classical correctness, they are as remarkable for their exactness. I always walked over the gardens with his book in my hand, examined with attention the particular spots he described, found them so justly characterised by him as to be easily recognised, and saw with wonder, that his fine imagination had never been able to seduce him from the truth". "The most comprehensive work on the theory of landscape design developed by the natural school before the time of Humphrey Repton" (Blanche Henrey). ¶ de Ganay, Biblio. de l'art des jardins, 87.

        Relation d'un voyage dans la mer du Nord, aux Côtes d'Islande, du Groenland, de Ferro, de Schettland, des Orcades & de Norwége; fait en 1767 & 1768. Par M. de Kerguelen Tremarec, Lieutenant des Vaisseaux du Roi, de l'Académie Royale de Marine, Commandant les Frégates la Folle & l'Hirondelle. Ouvrage enrichi de Planches.

      Paris: De l'Imprimerie de Prault, 1771 - Edition originale, in-4, à très grandes marges; viii, (titre en rouge et noir orné d'une vignette de Le Gouaz représentant des voiliers, dédicace ornée d'une vignette par Le Gouaz, avertissement, approbation de l'Académie Royale de Marine ), 220p., [3p. Approbation, Privilège, instructions pour le placement des Cartes et Estampes]; 14 cartes et vues dont 10 dépliantes, 4 estampes de Eisen gravées par Le Mire dont une dépliante. Reliure d'époque en veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges, avec l'ex-libris héraldiquede la Bibliothèque Larcher, gravé par Gamot, 1741 (Michel IV Larcher, marquis d'Arcy, 1714-1772, maître des requêtes au parlement de Paris). Petite tache marginale p.144 mais un bel exemplaire. Voyage divisé en quatre parties et un "Supplément? contenant le retour en Islande, le passage entre les isles aux Oiseaux, une description abrégée du Groënland, la description du port de Brandsoom en Norvège, des remarques sur les sondes? enfin le retour à Brest par la Manche." Le but du voyage principal était la protection des pêcheurs de morue en Islande. Sur la carte dépliante dressée par Bellin est située l'isle Rokol, à l'Ouest de l'Ecosse, que Kerguelen semble avoir découverte. L'ouvrage est destiné aux navigateurs et "moins fait pour ceux dont les jours coulent tranquillement à terre dans le sein de la mollesse, que ceux qui par état et par honneur passent d'un hémisphère à l'autre et bravent mille périls, ou pour enrichir ou pour servir leur patrie." (!) Les jolies planches de Eisen illustrent le combat d'un finlandais avec un ours, un lapon en traineau tiré par un renne, des samoïèdes avec leurs skis? Sabin 37616. Boucher de la Richarderie I,380: "ce qui donne encore de l'importance à cette relation, ce sont les directions que Kerguelen y donne aux marins sur la manière de se gouverner en naviguant de l'Islande vers la Norwège, dont les côtes présentent partout un aspect effroyable."

Luigi de Angelis: "Les trois premiers voll., les seuls qui appartiennent à Gandellini, ont été impr. pour la prmière fois à Sienne en 1771; ils sont meilleurs que la continuation dans laquelle, selon Cicognara,2281, l'A. reproduit toutes les erreurs de ses devancier, sans offrir aucune notice neuve et utile". Fresco esempl. con ex libris, ben conservato.

        Questions sur l'encyclopedie, distribuees en forme de dictionnaire par des amateurs. Seconde edition. 9 Bände.

      Londres (fingiert), 1771-72.. (21 x 12,5 cm). Etwas spätere Halblederbände mit hübscher Rückenvergoldung.. Das vorliegende Lexikon ist weit mehr als nur eine Fortsetzung und Erweiterung seines "Dictionaire philosophique". "Es ist die Summe des von Voltaire in vierzig Jahren angehäuftem Wissens und ein Neuanfang. Es enthält 423 Artikel, und die meisten älteren sind neu geschrieben.... Voltaires Lexikon ist zugleich für und gegen die große Enzyklopädie von Diderot und d'Alembert gerichtet; für sie, weil es die gleiche aufklärerische Absicht verfolgt, gegen sie, weil ihm viele Beiträge zur Enzyklopädie mißfielen und er manches Stichwort vermißte" (Voltaire, Die Werke. Zum 300. Geburtstag). - Titel mit Besitzvermerken von alter Hand. Stellenweise gering gebräunt und etwas wasserrandig. Einbände leicht berieben. Oberes Kapital von Band 8 gering restauriert. Insgesamt dekoratives Exemplar in guter Erhaltung
