        Inledning til djur-riket, efter herr archiatern och riddaren Carl von Linnés lärogrunder.

      Sthlm, C. Stolpe, 1772. 8:o. (16),234,(37) s. & 4 utvikbara grav. plr. Häftad i samtida ngt nött gråpappersomslag. Den ngt fläckiga ryggen med små ytliga förluster av gråpapper.

Titelbladets baksida med en tryckt rekommendationsskrivelse av Linné själv, som med "hjertans nöje" genomläst boken. "Inledning til djur-riket" är tänkt för skolbruk och Retzius försökte införa "stadgade ordasätt", en svensk terminologi. Han satte svenska namn på djurens alla delar, och indelar t.ex. fåglarnas fötter i spatser-, gång-, sim-, klif-, vad- och utklipte fötter. Fyra detaljerade planscher visar på alla dessa karaktärer avseende olika djurgrupper. Anders Jahan Retzius (1742-1821) läste som ung vid Lunds universitet, försörjde sig därefter en tid som apotekare, men återvände till Lunds universitet först som botanisk demonstrator och senare som professor i naturalhistoria med fortsatt ansvar för den botaniska trädgården. Från 1782 var han också ledamot av Vetenskapsakademien

        Observations on different Kinds of Air. By Joseph Priestley, LL.D.F.R.S. (Caption title: "Read March 5,12,19,26,1772").

      (London, 1772). 4to. Bound in a fine recent brown hmorocco in old style, gilt back. In: Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society pp. 147-264 (vol. 62) and 1 folded engraved plate (P.Basire Sc.). A fine large copy, broad margins, printed on good paper, clean and fine throughout.. First edition of this important tract, which marked an epoch in the history of chemistry. As it is Priestley's first extensive work on Gases, it foreshadowed his identification of Oxygen."The paper here, for which the Royal Society awarded Priestley the Copley medal announced the discovery of hydrochloric acid and nitric oxide and the use of the latter in measuring the purity of air, which led through the work of Cavendish, Fontana and others to exact eudiometry. Priestley also observed that plants consume carbon dioxide and gave out oxygen, thereby purifying air which has been vitiated by combustion, respiration and putrefaction, and that this action takes place only under daylight." (Printing and the Mind of Man No. 217)."In this paper he also announced two new gases that he had obtained - nitrous oxide and carbonic oxide; these won him the Royal Society's Copley medal. Two years later his experiments in heating red oxide of mercury produced "dephlogisticated air" which was announced in 1775 and identified by Lavoisier as oxygen." (Dibner Heralds of Science No. 40).The work contains a proposal to saturate water with carbonic acid under either atmospheric or increased pressure, which led to the creation of the mineral-water industry.The Centenary of the discovery of oxygen was celebrated at Priestley's American home at Northumberland, Pennsylvania, and was followed in 1876 by the foundation of the American Chemical Society.

        Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano

      Rome: 1772-1777. Copper engraving by Volpato after a drawing by Camporesi, later professional hand-colouring. Good condition. Expert strengthening to verso of right outer blank margin, some old light creasing to 3 inches of the sheet. 25 x 16 3/8 inches. 26 3/4 x 19 1/8 inches. This beautiful perspective view of Raphael's Loggia, served as the frontispiece to the celebrated text, "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano". This arresting print is a general perspective view of Raphael's design for the Loggia at the Vatican, with a large profile portrait of Raphael in a medallion over the entrance to the corridor. The plate served as the frontispiece to the first part of the "Logge di Rafaele nel Vaticano", which depicted 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 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; Lambert Pattern and Design (V. & A.: 1983), p. 26; "Raphael Invenit: Stampe da Rafaello" (1985) Volpato 1; Raphael: Reproduktions- graphik aus vier Jahrhunderten (Coburg: 1984), p. 104; G. Marini (editor) Giovanni Volpato 1735-1803 (1988) no. 198.
