        Poemetti filosofici.

      Modena: Eredi di Bartolomeo Soliani, 1772. - Giovanni Battista Vicini (1709-1782), poet and translator, was called by Baretti "uno dei magni poetastri d'Italia." He produced several collections of poems, both sacred and secular. He worked at the Ducal court in Modena and dedicated this work to Ipolito Giuliano Bellincini-Bagnesi, chamberlain to Duke Francesco III. The title indicates that the poems contained here are of a scientific nature. One of the longer poems is on the botany and use of trees, entitled "La favela, ed il canto degli arbori et dei fiori," which is both on the subjects of agriculture and natural history. Another poem, "I colori" deals with Newton's color theory, in particular his diffraction of sunlight with a prism. Octavo. 91, [3] pp. Wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces Contemporary speckled sheep over speckled boards, gilt flat spine with reddish-brown paste-paper lettering piece. A few wormholes, front cover a little rubbed. Occasional light foxing, but overall a very good, clean copy. With early twentieth-century stamp Fratelli Campori on front free endpaper. First edition. OCLC locates only one copy, at the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In 1749-1776, the works of Edwards 'A natural history of uncommon birds' and 'Gleanings of natural history' and Catesby 'Natural history of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands' were translated into German and combined into one work under the title 'Sammlung verschiedener ausländischer und seltener Vögel'. Catesby's work is considered 'the most famous colorplate book of American plant and animal life' (Hunt)./The plates of Edwards and Catesby were re-engraved by Seligmann, further embellished by the addition of figures of plants not present in the originals. The present work is a translation of the German edition into Dutch by Houttuyn with Seligmann's plates. The Dutch edition was published by the famous Dutch publisher Sepp, a company which exercised the utmost care in producing colour-plate books of outstanding quality. The colouring of the Dutch edition seems to be more delicate than the other editions. An unusual clean and fine set of this rare ornithological classic, of which according to the list in volume I, only 90 copies were subscribed. The Dutch edition is the most complete edition having 473 plates. The German edition has 447 plates and the French edition 422 plates./ /Fine Bird Books, pp. 73-74; Landwehr 180; Nissen IVB, 857 & ZBI, 845; Zimmer I, 200.

He was a prodigious worker, and published no less than 43 separate works... - He has been called the "Father of Modern Chemistry", for at least three reasons: (a) He realized that chemistry is worthy of study for its own sake, and not merely as an aid to medicine or as alchemy. (b) He introduced a rigorous experimental method into chemistry. (c) He clearly defined what he called a "corpuscle" or an "element", and showed experimentally that the four elements of Aristotle (fire, air, water, and earth), and the three principles of alchemists (salt, sulphur, and mercury) did not deserve to be called elements or principles at all." Franz Sondheimer - - "Boyle was a firm believer in the particulate nature of matter, and developed his own corpuscular philosophy. Matter to him consisted of particles or atoms of various shapes and sizes arranging themselves into groups which constituted chemical substances; (...)It is a theory much closer to that of modern physical chemistry with its molecules, atoms and kinetic theories, in which comparatively little attention is paid to the elementical character of the substance concerned. The imortance of Boyle's work ('s) must be sought in his combination of chemistry with physics. His corpuscular theory, and Newton's modification of it, gradually led chemists towards an atomic view of matter, though this was only finally established by Dalton." PMM, p..83 - - Illustrations: vol. I, frontispiece: engraved portrait of Boyle from a painting by T. Kersseboom. 3 plates inserted at end; vol. II, 6 plates; vol. Ill, 8 plates; vol.

        Fundamenta Entomologiae: or, an introduction to the knowledge of insects being a translation of the Fundamenta Entomologiae of Linnaeus, farther illustrated with Copper Plates and Additions.

William Curtis (1746-1799) is chiefly remembered as the author of two famous botanical books 'Flora Londinensis'' and the 'Botanical Magazine'. Curtis, however, was more than just the author on these 2 works. He studied most branches of natural history. His first work was an entomological treatise 'Instructions for collecting and preserving insects' (1771) which was warmly praised by Sir Joseph Banks. It was followed in 1772 by his 'Fundamenta Entomologiae'. //Horn-Schenkling 4241.

        (Inkvisitionskommissionen af 20. januar 1772). Stor samling af samtidige afskrifter af procesakter.

      Orig. manuskript. Skrevet med letlæselig dansk sekretærhåndskrift (af adskillige personer) på skrivepapir. Smukt kalligaferede overskrifter. Uden sted og år (København c. 1772). 4to. 398 sider. Senere elegant senere halvlæderbind med rig rygforgyldning i 1700-tals stil. Tilskrift på fribladet. Velbevaret.. Samtidigt kompendium af afskrifter fra de hemmeligholdte sagsakter fra Inkvisitionskommissionen mod Struensee samt fra skilsmisseprocessen mellem Christian VII og dronning Caroline Mathilde. Store dele af processen, især alt hvad der vedrørte forholdet til dronning Caroline Mathilde, blev holdt for hermetisk lukkede døre og blev først kendt i detaljer efter enevældens fald. Både den københavnske pøbel og mere ophøjede kredse var dog velunderrettet, for sidstnævntes vedkommende af den strøm af håndskrevne piratversioner af væsentlige sagsakter, som cirkulerede diskret. Nærværende kompendium er usædvanlig righoldigt.** Forrest i bogen er indsat et stort kobberstukket protræt af Struensee (21x17 cm, tæt beskåret), udført af Johann Martin Preisler (Westergaard 11495)

        Doorway to Vatican Loggia

      Rome, 1772. A highly decorative print from the famous "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano" series, with contemporary colouring of the highest quality from the golden age of the hand-coloured print. A very fine image from the first part of a work titled "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano" depicting the decorative work executed by Raphael and his assistants between 1518-1519 in the Vatican. This remarkable print, one of the first to be published of the decoration of the Logge on the main storey of the Vatican apartments, was probably planned as early as 1760, but was not executed until between 1772 and 1776. The project as a whole was carried out by the painter Gaetano Savorelli, the draughtsman Ludovico Teseo, the architect Pietro Camporesi, and the engravers Giovanni Ottaviani and Giovanni Volpato. The plate is remarkable not only as the first important visual record of Raphael's work, but also for the quality of the hand-colouring - the work on this image is, in our opinion, some of the greatest to be produced in Europe during the whole of the eighteenth century: the golden age of the hand-coloured print. The whole series was of importance not just for the size and magnificent colouring of the prints, but also because of the influence they had on contemporary taste. The decision was made to "borrow" elements from Raphael's Vatican tapestries and insert them where the original frescoes were in too poor a state to be legible. The finished plates therefore represented an amalgam of design elements presented with a crisp freshness of colour that held enormous appeal and stimulated the taste for the "grotesque" in the neo-classical period. Cf. Brunet IV, 1110; cf. Berlin Kat. 4068; cf. Lambert Pattern and Design (V. & A.: 1983), p. 26; "Raphael Invenit: Stampe da Rafaello" (1985) Ottaviano 17; Raphael: Reproduktions-graphik aus vier Jahrhunderten (Coburg: 1984), p. 104. Copper engraving by Ottaviani after drawings by Savorelli and Camporesi, printed in light brown coloured ink with contemporary hand-colouring. Good condition. Three repaired tears to the left blank margin. Sight size: 31 1/8 x 18 1/4 inches.

        Lettres historiques sur l'état actuel de la Pologne, et sur l'origine de ses malheurs.

      Amsterdam-Paris, Didot l'aîné, Delalain, Lacombe 1772 - in-8, [2]-328-52 pp., basane fauve marbrée, dos lisse cloisonné et fleuronné, pièce de titre cerise, simple filet doré sur les coupes, tranches rouges (reliure d el'époque). Coiffes abîmées avec manques, épidermures sur les plats. Unique édition, très peu commune, de cette analyse à la fois politique et économique de la situation catastrophique de la Pologne à la fin du XVIIIe siècle, au moment même du premier partage. En-dehors de son tout premier ouvrage sur les procédures de béatification et canonisation, l'abbé Baudeau (1730-1792) s'est consacré uniquement aux questions économiques et sociales dans le sillage de la physiocratie. Par une charge commendataire (il était prévôt mitré de Widzinisky depuis 1768), il avait un lien avec le royaume du Nord, qu'il visita à deux reprises, à la demande du prince Ignace Massalski : une première fois pendant l'hiver 1768-69 ; une seconde au milieu de l'année 1769, après un court passage par la Russie. La seconde partie de l'ouvrage, qui a sa pagination propre, s'intitule : Avis économiques aux citoyens éclairés de la République de Pologne, sur la manière de percevoir le revenu public. Absent de INED. Exemplaire du château de Châtillon, avec vignette ex-libris contrecollée sur les premières gardes.
