Grande successo editoriale del XVIII secolo, la casa rustica è un'enciclopedia dell'agricoltura e della vita rurale; si occupa di tutte le questioni di pratica e di solito modo: quindi non ci troverete un capitolo sulle api, ma anche sulla costruzione, e come progettare giardini, cortile, cavalli, grano, ognuna specie arboree ed arbustive, uccelli, cucina, vigneti, la pesca, la caccia ... Il suo successo è quello di essere in grado di concentrare un massimo di conoscenza pratica (senza strutture o in comune) un modo quasi giocoso per il lettore, i capitoli sul giardino sono esempi di questo approccio. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Mention de dixième édition, après l'originale parue en 1700.

Son succès est d'avoir su concentrer un maximum de savoirs pratiques (sans facilités ou vulgarisations) d'une manière presque ludique pour le lecteur, les chapitres sur le jardin sont à cet égard exemplaires.

Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. " - THE FIRST STATE OF FOUR - Etching with engraving, 1772, signed on plate.

Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris.

Schon bei den Zeitgenossen hinterließen sie großen Eindruck. Zarin Katharina II. ließ sich 1787 für den eigens dafür angefertigten Anbau an die Eremitage in St. Petersburg Kopien in Wachsmalerei ausführen.

        Carta corografica degli Stati di S. M. il Re di Sardegna data in luce dall'Ingegnere Borgonio nel 1683 corretta ed accresciuta nell'anno 1772

      1772. Carta geografica ad opera di Jacopo Stagnone applicata su tela a stacchi. I venticinque fogli che compongono questa magnifica carta murale (7 originali di Borgonio e 18 corretti ed incisi da Stagnone) sono riuniti in nove differenti fogli telati per una dimesione totale di 2200x2520 mm. L'opera di Stagnone è una riedizione aggiornata e corretta della precedente carta di Borgonio del 1680. Rispetto a quest'ultima la cartografia alpina presenta variazioni nelle distanze e nel disegno dei corsi d'acqua ed è arricchita nella rete stradale: mentre in Borgonio è solo segnata la strada principale della Valle d'Aosta (le grand chemin royal), nella carta di Stagnone, per la prima volta, le Valli del Monte Rosa tranne Ayas hanno un percorso stradale. Gli errori macroscopici di Borgonio per la raffigurazione della zona del Monte Bianco e per la Valsesia vengono corretti: finalmente il Monte Rosa, che non compariva sulla carta di Borgonio, è ben posizionato con le valli valdostane e piemontesi correttamente disposte. (Stagnone era originario di Mondelli in Valle Anzasca e perciò non poteva ignorare la topografia della zona). Quest'opera ebbe importante impiego militare durante la preparazione della seconda campagna d'Italia da parte dei francesi, e risulta che fu utilizzata da Napoleone per la strategia della battaglia di Marengo, proprio per la ricchezza di particolari inerenti i percorsi stradali e la dettagliata indicazione dei corsi d'acqua. Nella carta di Stagnone bisogna evidenziare la mancanza della raffigurazione del Forte di Bard, ma questo forse fu un errore "strategico". Conservazione perfetta.

        Nachricht von den Neuesten Entdeckungen der Engländer In der Süd-See, oder Auszug aus dem Tagebuch des Königl. Schiffs The Endeavour, welches in den Jahren 1768 bis 1771, eine Reise um die Welt gethan, und auf derselben verschiedene bisher unbekannte Länder in der südlichen Hemisphäre entdeckt hat, nebst einer kurzen Beschreibung dieser Länder, deren vorzüglichen Seltenheiten, Beschaffenheit der Einwohner, und einer kleinen Probe von der Sprache, die in jenem Theil der Welt üblich ist. [News of recent English discoveries in the South Seas... Journal of HMS The Endeavour's Voyage round the World...]

      Berlin: Haude & Spener, 1772. Joints rubbed but quite firm, papered backstrip chipped, internally fine, without errata leaf mentioned by du Rietz.. Small octavo, xvi, 232 pp.; single woodcut illustration (p.215); early nineteenth century speckled paper boards with original label, bookplates to front pastedown endpaper. The extremely scarce first German account of Cook's first voyage, translated from Magra's surreptitious English original with an additional postscript that is almost certainly the work of George or Johann Forster. This book is remarkable for a number of reasons: the evidently unique postscript includes a woodblock illustration of a Maori ornament, the first known depiction of a Polynesian artefact in a printed book (also the first such image from Cook's voyage to Australia and New Zealand). Furthermore, the lengthy postscript -- unique to this publication -- describes preparations for Cook's second voyage, with details of Banks' ambitious plans for the voyage, discussions of New Holland and the question of longitude, and other matters of then pressing importance. Curiously, it also contains the first scientific description of the kangaroo, based on the specimen that returned on the Endeavour, and notes prepared by Daniel Solander.The original London printing of Magra's anonymously published account of Cook's first voyage, on which this German edition is based, was first published in London in 1771. It was the earliest printed book on the voyage, predating the official narrative by more than two years, and thus the first publication of Cook's discovery and charting of the east coast of Australia and the end of the search for a "Southern Continent". Given its methodical detail and distinctive prose style, the postscript is widely assumed to have been contributed by Georg Forster or his father Johann. Rolf Du Rietz states 'the anonymous author was probably Georg Forster, one of Spener's correspondents' (Kroepelien catalogue 217). However, the text is just as likely to be the work of his father Johann (note, for instance, the reference to translating Bougainville, a task completed by both Forsters around this time). The postscript is dated 24 Hornung (i.e. February) 1772, and thus dates from the period during which Cook's second voyage was being planned. This was when Joseph Banks still fully intended to sail, and when the Forsters were regular visitors at Soho Square. Indeed, Johann had made it very clear that he was eager to join them on any second voyage. Ultimately he would be Banks' replacement.Forster's contribution provides an intriguing glimpse of Banks' aspirations, including a detailed commentary on his planned retinue at a time when people such as artist Johann Zoffany and Dr. James Lind were still planning to sail. It is full of interesting asides, such as a commentary on the natural history painting of Sydney Parkinson, the plans to take Harrison's chronometers aboard (with a discussion of their mechanism), Anson's discovery of the breadfruit tree on Tinian, and the properties of New Zealand flax. There is also much of note regarding Australia. A plan to take on board the parts for two small schooners so that they may be reassembled in New Holland is particularly interesting, as is the assertion that one of the planned outcomes of the voyage is to ascertain whether a strait exists between New Holland and Van Diemen's Land (Furneaux, of course, was later criticised for not settling this question). Perhaps most interesting of all is Forster's lengthy scientific description of the kangaroo: evidently based on Solander's work, this must be the first scientific notice of the kangaroo ever published.Another fascinating and unexplored aspect of this edition is the woodcut illustrating a Maori ear ornament on page 215, an integral part of the Forster postscript. The ornament illustrated is a greenstone ear-ring or pounamu kuru, and is the first published depiction of a Polynesian ethnographic artefact. It is also the first printed depiction of any object brought back to England from James Cook's first voyage. It is likely that Forster handled the kuru when visiting Banks and Solander at Soho Square, and subsequently included an illustration of the object in his letter to the German publisher Spener, who in due course reproduced the image when the letter formed part of the new postscript to Magra's narrative. Forster describes the greenstone as a natural vitreous rock cherished by the Maori, recalling a similar glassy stone encountered by French savant Charles Marie de la Condamine while exploring the Amazon. In his biography of Forster, Michael Hoare describes the great naturalist 'all agog with the richness and variety of specimens, observations and artefacts bought back in the Endeavour' (The Tactless Philosopher 1976, p. 69).A quick survey of related first voyage literature reveals the precedence of this image; the 1771 English language edition of Magra's narrative published by Becket and de Hondt in London is not illustrated. The French printing of Becket's edition dated 1772 (sold both as a separate book and as a supplement to Bougainville with a replacement title page) is likewise not illustrated. Other editions of Magra in French and English follow, but all postdate this German edition. Besides, the letter from Forster with the integral illustration makes its first appearance in this 1772 Berlin edition; yet more significantly, we are not aware of any subsequent reappearance of the text.Beyond the various editions of Magra as the first surreptitious first voyage account, the appearance of Polynesian artefacts in contemporary publications needs to be considered. Although Surville was simultaneously in New Zealand waters with Cook, publication of this voyage lagged far behind (Crozet 1783 and Monneron 1791). Marion Dufresne was in New Zealand somewhat later, from March 1772. Parkinson's famous quarto postdates the publication period in question, with the title-page dated 1773 and the plates not dated, but it is pleasing to note that the figures in six of the Parkinson plates are adorned with kuru ear ornaments similar to the example earlier depicted by Forster in this book.The chronological bibliography compiled by Hoare in his biography of Johann Forster does not include any discrete works on Pacific material culture published during the relevant timeframe of 1771-72 (i.e. from the return of the first voyage until Forster's departure on the second). Forster's postscript is his primary commentary on the first voyage in print, and contains the first published depiction of an Polynesian artefact.Considering the scope of the vast island world of Polynesia, the accounts of significantly earlier navigators must be considered when assigning priority to the New Zealand kuru depicted in this book. Dalrymple's Historical Collection of the Several Voyages and Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean was published in 1769-70 while Cook was still at sea. It contains the now famous image of Maori warriors at Murderer's Bay derived from Tasman's unpublished journal. Dalrymple actually took the image directly from Valentijn's encylopedia of the Dutch East Indies published 1726 which incorporated much content relating to Tasman. Although the Maori depicted in the Murderer's Bay print do hold oars (which were certainly objects of significance in Polynesian culture), they are depicted in a generic manner strongly reminiscent of Dutch and Flemish figure engraving of the seventeenth century. Indeed, the figures in the Murderer's Bay plate are stylistically similar to Florida Indians or Goa Fisherman in this artistic tradition. Hence, the Murderer's Bay plate is generic and dramatic in nature - in obvious contrast to Forster's practical sketch of the kuru pendant - and cannot be considered a comparable objective depiction of Polynesian material culture as such.Earlier printed depictions of Pacific artefacts do exist, but come from the northern region, specifically the Marianas in present-day Micronesia. This area had a longer history of European contact than Polynesia, as the Micronesian islands lie along the route taken by galleons laden with gold and silver travelling across the Pacific from the western coast of South America to the Philippines. Two such examples from English books are Cooke Voyage to the South Sea (London 1712) with a plate illustrating a proa and a fishhook; and the Anson quarto of 1748 that contains a plate of stone monuments of Tinian and a proa from the Ladrones (both Marianas).The kuru image is obviously different in that it is an ornamental rather than a practical object (which is not to deny that fishhooks are often beautiful and endowed with cultural significance). It is indeed possible that the lines engraved in the woodblock image of the kuru do in fact follow the intrinsic 'grain' of the greenstone. If the kuru was originally in the possession of Banks, it is unlikely to have been discarded and may have found its way to an institutional collection (the British Museum being one such possibility). This opens up an exciting avenue of future research, re-uniting the first printed depiction of a Polynesian ornament with the physical object itself.Magra's anonymous account was the first, and most famous, of the so-called surreptitious accounts of Cook's voyages. It was published in London only two months after the return of the Endeavour, and nearly two years before Hawkesworth's official account. This edition, published by the German voyage publishers Haude & Spener, is thought to have been prepared by Johann Karl Phillip Spener himself. The German version is differently titled to the English original of 1771, which was entitled A Journal of a Voyage Round the World in His Majesty's Ship Endeavour, in the Years 1768, 1769, 1770, And 1771. As already shown, the contents of the book are markedly different with the addition of the Forster postscript, content of comparable historical interest to Magra's narrative itself.As an interesting tangent, the identity of the author of the narrative (now identified as Magra) was unknown to the Berlin translator/publisher Spener, and was presumably not known by Forster either, given the close professional relationship between the two men. In the preface here Spener speculates that the author may have been the surgeon's mate William Perry who could have appropriated the journal of the Endeavour surgeon William Munkhouse who died at Batavia in November 1770 (for more information on the journal see Snell 'Captain Cook's Surgeons' in Medical History vol. 7, no. 1 for 1963). This anecdotal speculation about the anonymous author is curious given the real interest of Solander and Banks in ascertaining the truth and Forster's contact with the two men during this period. The 1771 London edition had contained a dedication leaf to Banks and Solander (included to give the book greater legitimacy), however Banks was irritated by this and leant on the publishers who duly removed it from the remainder of their stock. This German edition reveals that not only were Banks and his luminaries ignorant of the identity of the author, but so were both Forster and his German publisher Spener.This book is rarely available on the market and institutional holdings are limited. Beddie records only the Mitchell Library copy and Ferguson's copy in the National Library of Australia. The copy held by the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington is the only example that we have located in a New Zealand library.This copy has an interesting provenance, with the bookplate of the Ketelhodt family and the 1804 label pasted over it "Bibliothek des Geh. Ru. C. dz. Carl Gerds v. Ketelhodt acquirit zum allgemeinen Besten von Ludwig Friedrich Fürsten zu Schwarzburg Rud. 1804" recording the purchase by Ludwig Friedrich, Prince of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, of Carl Gerhard von Ketelhodt's library in 1804. Perhaps this very volume was handled by the poet Friedrich Schiller, who often used the famous library put together by Karl Gerd von Ketelhodt (1738-1814); Schiller had an interest in Georg Forster, and was among those who reviled the revolutionary younger Forster as a traitor before his premature death in 1794.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("V.").

      [Wohl Ferney, um 1772]. - 2/3 S. 8vo. Unbekanntes Schreiben an seinen Verleger Gabriel Cramer in Genf, mit der Bitte, schnellstmöglichst ein Exemplar seiner "Geschichte Ludwigs XIV." an den Genfer Buchbinder Jacoby zu liefern und auf Kosten Voltaires hübsch binden zu lassen; der Parlamentspräsident von Besançon, der sich für die unglücklichen Leibeigenen der Franche-Comté einsetzen wolle, habe sich eines gewünscht: "Mr. Le premier Président de Bezancon qui vient de rendre un arrêt en faveur des malheureux serfs de franche comté demande un éxemplaire du siècle de Louis 14. Je prie instamment Monsieur Cramer de vouloir bien en envoier un à Jacoby qui le reliera proprement pour mon compte. Je lui serai très obligé [.]". - In seinen letzten Lebensjahren kämpfte Voltaire publizistisch und politisch für die Bauern von Saint-Claude in seiner Nachbarschaft, die noch der Leibeigenschaft unterlagen, da dem Gebiet, als es 1679 zu Frankreich gekommen war, die Beibehaltung seiner wirtschaftlichen Gebräuche zugestanden worden war. Alles Gut, alles Erwirtschaftete, ja alle Bewohner waren Eigentum der zwanzig Chorherrn von Saint-Claude. Wer dort geboren wurde, war leibeigen, wer ein Jahr dort lebte oder dorthin einheiratete, wurde es, wer fortzog, dessen Besitz verfiel der Abtei. Voltaire, der darin ein "Regime legalisierter Sklaverei" erblickte, setzte sich von 1770 bis 1775 erfolglos für eine Verbesserung der Verhältnisse ein; erst die Revolution brachte hier die Aufhebung der Leibeigenschaft. - Gefaltet; Spuren eines roten Siegels. Nicht in Bestermans Edition der "Correspondance".

        Cours d'hippiatrique, ou Traité complet de la médecine des chevaux, orne de soixante & cinq planches gravées avec soin.

      Paris, (Seneuze for) Edme and the author, 1772. - Folio (350 x 500 mm). (6), XI, (1), XVII, (1), 402, VI pp. With 2 engr. frontispieces and 56 engr. plates, many folding, each in 2 states (thus, a total of 112 plates): black and white & hand-coloured (counted as 65 engravings, including frontispieces and 7 text vignettes). Contemp. brown calf with gilt spine label. Marbled endpapers. All edges red. First edition of this remarkable book on horse anatomy: the famous "Veterinary Course, or Complete Treatise on Equine Medicine", the principal work of the French veterinarian P. E. Lafosse (1738-1820). Lafosse had considerable anatomical skill, coupled with a profound knowledge of horses and equitation, and his work ranks with Stubbs in the artistic realization of equine anatomy.

      London: S. Hooper, 1772. Six volumes complete, 1772-1777 - Volume One - [6], ii, 82pp, [101]; Volume Two - [196]; Volume Three - [248]; Volume Four - [204], 10pp, [14]; Volume Five (first supplement volume) - [8], iv, [302], 4pp and Volume Six (second supplement volume) - [266], 38pp, [13 plates], pp33-36, 4pp, 8pp. Contemporary full calf, raised bands with spines in six panels, leather title label to second panel, contrasting volume label to third. Rubbed, some scuffing and bumping to extremities, a few minor scrapes to leather, with a couple of minor splits to joints, but all holding well. Internally occasional light foxing, browning and off-setting, especially to the first volume, but generally fairly bright and clean. Previous owner's armorial book plate to front pastedowns (Vane Londonderry). Most of the plates and vignettes in the first volume are hand-coloured. County maps and large folding map of England and Wales are hand-coloured in outline. Bibliographically difficult, lacks four county maps (as to index - Hertfordshire, Somersetshire, Staffordshire and Westmoreland), but does have Northumberland (not listed). Probably lacks some other plans, plates or text, but has others not listed. The index is unreliable, with several plates listed twice under different titles, a proper collation has not been found and is offered as is. Upcott xxx and Lowndes 948. First Edition. Full Calf. Good+. Folio.

      John Baskerville, Birmingham 1772 - Folio, 572 unnumbered leaves. A very good copy in contemporary reversed calf with morocco label on the spine. a bit rubbed at the edges. Fits the collation of Gaskell 35, 2nd state with 1772 on first title, but has not had the plates bound in, there is no sign of any stubs or indication that the were ever bound in, where called for in Gaskell. The text block is heavily trimmed with loss to the text of the title pages, and some catchwords etc, some edges roughly cut. Family history (Webb Family, Cork) on the blank facing the NT title page. Overall a very good copy in original state, in what could be a publisher's binding, possibly some kind of 'remainder' copy sold without the plates due to the paper quality. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The bye-laws, and regulations of the Marine-Society, incorporated in MDCCLXXII:

      12mo., xi (1) 62 (2) 139 (1)pp., with an engraved title-page, contemporary calf, spine fully gilt in compartments with flower and leaf devices within raised bands, red morocco label, just the smallest snag at foot of spine, but still a fine copy originally from the library of Sir Timothy Waldo, one of the original subscribers, with his armorial bookplate on pastedown. The 'historical account' (62pp.) was written by Jonas Hanway himself for it was he who, in 1756, had got together a group of shipowners and merchants to form a society to supply men and boys for the sea service and to equip them with the proper gear. During the war years, 1756-1763, some 10,625 men and boys were thus fitted out for sea duty. At the close of the war, however, the activities of the Marine Society lapsed for financial reasons until 1769 when it was left a substantial legacy. "Now its schemes were directed chiefly toward discovering destitute or deserted boys, fitting them out, and apprenticing them in the merchant service. In 1786, the Society acquired a ship, where 150 to 200 boys would be 'separated from their evil companions, cleansed from their rags and filthiness, softened into habits of subordination and obedience, inured to gentle disciplines. In terms of numbers affected and money involved, the Marine Society developed into one of the more imposing eighteenth-century charities. During its first half century (from 1756 to 1808), over 27,500 boys were equipped for service at sea and more than 36,000 landsmen volunteers were clothed as seamen for His Majesty's ships. Receipts came to nearly ?246,000." [David Owen, English philanthropy, 1965, p.60].

Moström 88 för Bergman. Komplett uppsättning av Cosmographiska sällskapets "Werlds beskrifning" med de fina av Årre graverade frontespiserna. Bland planscherna återfinns bland annat en liten karta över Lofoten och en "Utsickt af den så kallade Jättevägen i Irland". Mallet hade 1762 anonymt publicerat "Kort beskrifning om globers nytta och bruk", ett resultat av hans samarbete med gravören Anders Åkerman, tillverkare av de första svenska globerna. Första arbetet i denna svit är en fullständigt omarbetad version av denna. Bergmans arbete utkom första gången 1766 i en volym, men är mycket utökad i andra upplagan och enligt Sten Lindroth "ett mästerverk" och "med viss rätt har den betraktats som den första moderna fysiska geografin över huvud". Den översattses till danska, tyska och ryska. Den mångsidiga Torbern Bergman, mest känd som kemist, var en av Cosmographiska sällskapets stiftare. Insulins arbete är inte bara en etnografisk beskrivning av världen utan beskriver även de olika ländernas politiska geografi

        THEATRICAL BIOGRAPHY: OR, MEMOIRS OF THE PRINCIPAL PERFORMERS OF THE THREE THEATRES ROYAL

      London: Printed for S. Bladon, 1772. n. Similar to current works that provide celebrity commentary, this is a delightful early Romantic era "tell-all" about Garrick and some of the other more prominent actors and actresses of the Theatres Royal (i.e., those theaters with a royal patent). A piece in "The Monthly Review" of May 1772 reported that these volumes "are penned with a freedom, and in some instances a licentiousness, of expression, perfectly congenial with the unrestrained manner of living for which the sons and daughters of Thespis are generally remarkable." However reliable the contents are (and one would expect and probably excuse uneven authenticity), this is one of those rare books that one can open to almost any page and find titillating or provocative commentary. One small sample: writing about the self-destructive behavior of Mr. (Joseph) Vernon of Drury-Lane, our author notes that "French wine, fine wenches, and an elegant chariot, work deep upon both" his purse and constitution. Such candid remarks may have encouraged our author to remain anonymous; in any case, later scholars have occasionally (but not conclusively) attributed this work to one William Cooke. This book appears on the market only occasionally, and is rarely found, as here, complete (with both half titles), in its original binding, and in appealing condition.. 160 x 95 mm. (6 1/4 x 3 3/4"). 2 p.l., vii, [1], 156, [4], 147, [5] pp. Two volumes bound in one. Contemporary speckled calf, raised bands, brown morocco label. Front pastedown with bookplate of Jonathan Pytts, Esqr. Lowe 2206. Small chip at bottom of spine, light wear to joints and extremities, a few minor spots to leather, but the inexpensive original binding solid, generally well preserved, and certainly appealing. Endpapers with faint offsetting from glue used for turn-ins, a few places in the text with offsetting on facing pages because of insufficiently dried ink, one upper corner with tip torn off, otherwise a pleasing copy internally, with fresh and clean leaves.
