        Grundsätze der Moralphilosophie. Uebersetzt und mit einigen Anmerkungen versehen von Christian Garve. Leipzig: Dyck, 1772.

      - First German edition of Ferguson's Institutes of Moral Philosophy (1769). Not in Chuo. Carlyle called this 'the book that did the most honour to any of the Scotch Philosophers'. It went through several English editions, and during Ferguson’s lifetime was also translated into French, Italian and Russian (the Russian version being partly based on this German translation by Garve). Christian Garve (1742–98) was held in high regard as a philosopher by his immediate contemporaries, including Kant, and was also famous for his annotated translations. Apart from Cicero and Aristotle, he concentrated mainly on Scottish philosophy, economics and political theory. Besides Ferguson's Institutes, he translated works by Adam Smith, Lord Kames, Edmund Burke and Alexander Gerard. Indeed Norbert Waszek has argued that Garve was the most important figure in the reception of the Scottish Enlightenment in Germany (see Norbert Waszek, 'Christian Garve als Zentralgestalt der deutschen Rezeption Schottischer Aufklärung', in Daniel Brühlmeier et al. (eds), Schottische Aufklärung (Berlin, 1996), pp. 123-45). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, [x], 420 pp., contemporary half calf over speckled boards, rubbed, slight loss to foot of spine, marbled endpapers, art nouveau bookplate on half-title verso, uniform light browning and isolated spots, a very good copy.

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments: Newly Translated out of the Original Tongues, and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised, By His Majesty's Special Command.

      London - C. Eyre and W. Strahan 1772 - The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments: Newly Translated out of the Original Tongues, and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised, By His Majesty's Special Command being 'The King James Bible. ' Together withThe New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Newly Translated out of the Original Greek and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised, By His Majesty's Special Command to rear of volume two. First edition printedby Eyre and Strahan, Printers to the King's Most Excellent MajestyIn two volumes complete. The Authorised Version, commonly known as the King James Version, King James Bible, KJB, or KJV, is an English translation of the Christian Bible by the Church of England begun in 1604 and completed in 1611. First printed by the King's Printer Robert Barker, this was the third official translation into English. The first was the Great Bible commissioned by the Church of England in the reign of King Henry VIII, and the second was the Bishop's Bible of 1568. In January 1604, King James VI of Scotland and I of England convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English version was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations as detected by the Puritans, a faction within the Church of England. William Strahan (1715 - 1785) was a Scottish printer and publisher, and a Member of Parliament. Strahan was originally apprenticed to an Edinburgh printer but became a Master Printer in London. In 1738 he was made a Freeman of the City of London and a freeman of the Stationers' Company. Diversifying from printing to publishing, he built up a highly important and successful business, at one time employing 50 men. He was Samuel Johnson's chief publisher, being entrusted with the printing of Johnson's Dictionary, and also published the works of the philosophers David Hume and Adam Smith, and the historian Edward Gibbon. From 1770, he was Printer to the King (George III). Previous owner's ink inscription to front blank. Condition: In contemporary crushed morocco binding.

Bibliotheks-Expl., etw. stockfleckig, Besitzsign. a. T., leichte Faltspur, leichte Gbrsp. - Italienisches Traktat zur Schwindsucht (TBC) und den Vorbeugungen dagegen. - Die größte geschichtliche Welle der Tuberkulose begann im 17. Jahrhundert und gipfelte im 18. Jahrhundert. Nach einem temporären Aufflackern der Epidemie kurz nach dem Ersten und dem Zweiten Weltkrieg erlebt Europa heute die letzten Ausläufer dieser Welle. In den europäischen Ländern gab es im 18. Jahrhundert hinsichtlich der Auffassung der Pathogenese unterschiedliche Traditionen. Viele Medizinautoren dieser Zeit betrachteten die Tuberkulose als die schlimmste unter den damals bekannten Seuchen. Als Ursachen sahen sie eine Ungleichverteilung der Körpersäfte, unheilvolle Ausdünstungen des Bodens, die Verstädterung oder den Verfall der Sitten an. In Italien neigte man dagegen traditionell zu einer contagiösen, d. h. übertragbaren Ursache. Konsequenterweise führte die Republik Venedig Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts die schriftliche Meldepflicht bei Erkrankungen an der Phthyse (Schwindsucht) der Lungen ein. Die persönliche Habe der an der Erkrankung verstorbenen Personen wurde zur Minderung der Ansteckungssgefahr verbrannt ... Das erste Tuberkulose-Sanatorium weltweit wurde 1855 in Deutschland eröffnet, im niederschlesischen Görbersdorf (heute Sokolowsko, Polen). Nachdem man auch im Norden erkannt hatte, dass die Krankheit ansteckend ist, wurde die Tuberkulose in den 1880ern in Großbritannien meldepflichtig. Damals gab es Kampagnen zum Vermeiden des Ausspuckens auf öffentlichen Plätzen. (Zitat) Versand D: 7,00 EUR Medizin

        Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano.

      RAFAËL INSPIREERT DE NEO-KLASSIEKENDecoratieve pilasters met fruit, bloemen en wingerd. (Deels in de tijd, deels later) met de hand gekleurde gravures, elk gedrukt van twee koperen platen, uitgegeven te Rome 1772. Afkomstig uit de serie (uitgegeven in boekvorm) "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano"' en gegraveerd door Giovanni Ottaviani en Giovanni Volpato naar tekeningen van Gaetano Savorelli. Formaat elk ca. 107,3 x 40,6 cmRafael Sanzio da Urbino (1483 '" 1520), in het Nederlands beter bekend als Rafaël, vertrok vanuit Florence naar Rome vermoedelijk omdat hem ter ore was gekomen dat er in het Vaticaan, destijds onder Paus Julius II, privé-vertrekken waren die opnieuw gedecoreerd moesten worden. In 1509 kreeg hij de opdracht voor één van de vertrekken. Met succes, al heel snel gold hij in het Vaticaan, op Michelangelo na, als de belangrijkste kunstenaar. Hij zou er de rest van zijn korte leven blijven. Rafaël en zijn assistenten maakten de wand- en plafondschilderingen in de Loggia van het Vaticaan in 1518-1519.De prenten tonen de decoratie van de Loggia op de belangrijkste verdieping van het appartementen gebouw van het Vaticaan.De prenten zijn veelal een combinatie van Rafaëlitsche design elementen omdat de originele fresco"s niet altijd zichtbaar meer waren. Het resultaat sprak de smaak van het publiek aan het einde van de 18e eeuw enorm aan en legde de grondslag voor de grotesken in de neo-classistische periode.Prijs: € 2.250,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling)/stuk.

        La Salameide poemetto giocoso con le note

      Appresso Guglielmo Zerletti 1772 In 8vo (cm 21,5), cartonato coevo colorato (minime mancanze e spellature), antiporta incisa, pp. (10), cxxxv, (3). Titolo inciso con vignetta in rame al centro. Vignetta in rame all'inizio del primo canto. Un po' sciolto, insignificante macchia al margine esterno delle ultime carte, ma OTTIMA COPIA intonsa con barbe.EDIZIONE ORIGINALE di uno dei più riusciti poemetti di argomento gastronomico della letteratura italiana. «Fra i poemi Apiciani in genere giocosi è questo uno dei più leggiadri e faceti che si abbia la lingua nostra, la bizzarra invenzione di esso, l'elegante ed evidente modo di raccontare e descrivere, la forbitezza e proprietà  della dizione, il fino lepore dovunque sparso, e la peregrina erudizione onde è infiorato, e che più opportunamente per via di note si manifesta, ne rendono la lettura piacevole oltre modo, come quella di presso che tutte le altre poesie bernesche dell'autore, per le quali aveva non comune facilità  e genio» (A. Lombardi, Storia della letteratura italiana nel secolo XVIII, Modena, 1829, p. 345). \ Il nome dell'autore si deduce dal divertente avviso ai lettori dello stampatore. Il poema si compone di quattro canti, in cui sono elogiati tutti i prodotti del porco, dal prosciutto alla porchetta, dalla braciola al sanguinaccio, dai tomacelli («si fanno col fegato di porco cotto lesso, poi gratugiato, e impastato con uova, cacio, ed altro ec. finalmente ridotto in pallottole involte nella rete, o sia omento del porco, si cuoce in padella, o teglia», pp. CXIII - IV) al cotechino, dal salame di fegato alla salsiccia.Così esordiscono le note: «Un soldato Alemano mal sapendo esprimere in nostra lingua il salame, dal vederlo pendente da una trave e da una pertica, lo credette un frutto così secco col suo ramo, e però disse di voler del frutto di quell'albero secco. Il fatto è vero» (p. XCI). \ Il Frizzi, ferrarese, fu intimo amico del Tiraboschi. Occupò diverse cariche politico - amministrative nella sua città , in cui fondò fra l'altro l'Accademia degli Argonauti. Avendo accesso agli archivi comunali, dopo anni di ricerche pubblicò le Memorie per la Storia di Ferrara, la fino ad allora più importante storia di Ferrara dalle origini al 1598 (E. De Tipaldo, Biografia degli Italiani illustri, Venezia, 1868, vol. IV, pp. 419 - 420). \ G. Morazzoni, Il libro illustrato veneziano del Settecento, Milano, 1943, p. 232. O.

      Williamsburg: William Rind, 1772. Folio. Half calf and marbled boards in antique style, leather label. Last leaf backed, minor foxing and toning. Very good. Two Virginia imprints comprising session laws of the General Assembly passed July 1771 and February 1772. Various acts provide relief for owners of tobacco damaged or burned in a warehouse fire, regulations for disciplining the militia, guidelines for "Trials and Outlawries of Slaves," and others, including numerous acts creating infrastructure. The second volume is the second issue, with the correct date in the imprint. Though mentioned on both titlepages, an Index was never printed. Of the first volume, Berg writes: "Once again public money had to be raised to repay planters for tobacco lost or burned at inspection warehouses in Henrico, Chesterfield, King George, and Northampton Counties. The treasurer of the colony was authorized to borrow up to 30,000 pounds to repay those individuals suffering losses." Regarding the second volume, again from Berg: "An act passed at this session to erect and maintain a lighthouse at Cape Henry displays a rare example of financial cooperation between the colonies of Maryland and Virginia. Both colonial assemblies approved this joint venture, which was to be financed from a duty placed on ships using the Chesapeake Bay." Rare, with Berg recording only nine copies of the first and eleven copies of the second. EVANS 12265, 12591. BERG 200, 208. ESTC W8520, W23642. OCLC 6325885, 63255965.

He entered the trade in 1766, working in association with the printer and bookseller Kints Everard, before succeeding him in 1767. He was also active as printer to one or more Parisian booksellers until the 1790s.

This excellent work is devoted to Japanese women, with 60 illustrations on the events of the twelve months, about 50 others on women's culture all skillfully drawn by Kitao. * With a profusion of calligraphy examples on how to write a New Year's letter & reply, festival letters, invitations, plum blossom letters, yearly celebration letters, holidays, weddings, births, 'thank you' notes, gifts &c. A very interesting illustrated book, with very good insight to the activities of the Japanese before Western influence. Charming illustrations show a wide variety of customs and festivals. * Color plates show shell gathering at the shore, Great Shrine at Edo, Shamisen & Koto playing, Madame Lady Murasaki composing her "Tales of Genji," the first novel written by a woman. With most beautiful examples of calligraphy examples. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: K. Toda: THE RYERSON COLLECTION: p.216 top of the page. * Louise Brown: BLOCK PRINTING & BOOK ILLUSTRATION IN JAPAN: p.131, bottom of the page, wherein Brown lists books signed by Sukenobu, although he died in 1751, may actually have been the work of his son. Clearly the art work is exceptionally similar if not that of Sukenobu. It is our opinion, because of the coloring, this must be the work of his son, with the innovative color added. * Not in Kerlen. * Color scans can be sent by e-mail.

      Newport, 1772. Antique three-quarter calf and marbled board, gilt, leather labels. Portrait frontispiece reinforced at gutter and corners. Plate of King Philip with old skillfully repaired tear in center, trimmed close on outer edge. Moderate wear and soiling to text; some leaves with small tears at edges, neatly repaired. Several signatures supplied from a slightly shorter copy. Overall a good copy. The second edition, after the exceedingly rare first published in Boston in 1716. One of the most popular narratives of King Philip's War, mainly narrating the prowess and adventures of Benjamin Church, one of the most important officers in the War, by his son Thomas. This edition is notable for its two engravings by Paul Revere. The frontispiece portrait of Church is not based on any original image of him, but lifted by Revere from a 1768 portrait of Charles Churchill, with a powder horn added. One of Revere's most famous engravings is the portrait of King Philip, actually based on one of Verelst's engravings of the Indian Kings of Canada. Despite this, it is notable not only as a Revere engraving but also as the first portrait of an Indian actually printed in America. This second edition contains a sketch of the life of Benjamin Church, not found in the first edition.

        The Analysis of Beauty. Written with a view of fixing the fluctuating ideas of taste.

      W. Strahan 1772 - A new edition. xxi, [3], 153, [3]pp., 2 large engraved folding plates, as often the case loosely inserted. Contemporary calf, rebacked, not recently, corners worn and some abrasions to the boards. Lower corner of the title-page torn without loss of text, and some light age browning to the paper in places. 4to. London: printed by W. Strahan, for Mrs Hogarth, and sold by her at her house in Leicester-Fields. 1772. Provenance: Ownership names at the head of the title-page of Peter Knell, 1778, and Mrs Welland, 29th August 1817. In 1932 the volume was "given to Michael Rothenstein as a mark of my affectionate sympathy" by Sydney Schiff. It was then presented to John & Myfanwy Piper by Rothenstein on October 1948. It seems to have returned to Rothenstein's possession as he later gave it to Philip Mathews in March 1954. First published in 1753, this is the only other 18th century edition to be published, and this copy bears a distinguished provenance. Sydney Schiff was a prominent art collector, mainly of modernist works, although satirised by Wyndham Lewis in The Apes of God. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nieuwe en Nauwkeurige Kaart van een gedeelte van Noord Amerika, Behelzende Nieuw Engeland, New York, Pensylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, een Stuk van Virginia, Kanada en Halifax ..

      Utrecht: J. v. Schoonhoven, 1772. Copper-engraved folding map, engraved by Carel Jacob de Huyser, full period hand-colouring. Large and detailed map from a rare edition of Kalm's Travels. This map was published within the rare first Dutch edition of Kalm's Travels, the "most trustworthy description of Swedish settlement in 18th century Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania" (Howes). Between 1748 and 1749, Peter Kalm, a noted Swedish naturalist and student of Linnaeus, traveled throughout the northeast of America, specifically in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Canada, surveying the countryside, and recording notes on the inhabitants, the fauna, and the flora of the region. Returning to his native Stockholm, Kalm there published the first edition of his observations between 1753 and 1761, with Dutch and English editions soon to follow. The Dutch edition was the first edition to contain a map. The map principally depicts the region in which Kalm travelled, as far south as the Chesapeake and as far north as Quebec. However, the map extends quite a bit westward than would be expected, showing the Ohio River extending into present-day Kentucky. Interestingly, the map is among the earliest maps to identify petroleum in Pennsylvania, close to the location where oil was first discovered in Titusville in the mid-19th century.

Frontispiece of Vol. 1 is portrait of Machiavelli signed ?G. Collyer, sculp.? Bertelli/ Innocenti, Bibliografia Machiavelliana, 18th Cent., 106; Burd p. 4.

        Vollständiger Mayerhof, oder Sechszehn Bücher von der Landwirthschaft. - Virgils vier Bücher von dem Feldbaue, Weinbaue und den Bäumen, Viehzucht und Bienenwartung. Übersetzt von Johann Balthasar Sedlezki. 2 Teile in 1 Band.

      Augsburg Gebrüder Veith 1772 - 15 Bl., 412 S., 4, 4 Bl., 112 S., 2 Bl. Mit 2 gestochenen Titelvignetten. 8° (19,5 x 13,5 cm). Hellblaue Seide der Zeit mit Seidenvorsätzen und dreiseitigem, punziertem Goldschnitt. Erste deutsche Ausgabe des lateinischen Lehrgedichts ("Praedium rusticum") über die Landwirtschaft. Die 16 Kapitel handeln von Baumkultur, Bienenzucht, Hausgeflügel, Jagd, Viehhaltung etc., die Bücher X und XI sind ganz Weinbau und Kellerwirtschaft gewidmet. - Der Jesuit Vanière (1664-1739) verdiente sich mit diesem enorm erfolgreichen Werk den Beinamen "gallischer Vergil". Passend hierzu fertigte Sedlezki auch noch eine Übersetzung von Vergils Georgica, "welche, soviel mir bewußt, die erste in deutschen Versen ist" (Vorwort). Laut Vortitel "Vanier und Virgil von der Landwirthschaft" gehören beide Teile dieser Ausgabe zusammen. Der Augsburger Privatgelehrte Sedlezki (1727-1772) machte sich durch einige Übersetzungen aus dem Lateinischen einen Namen, zu einem Eintrag im Augsburger Stadtlexikon reichte es allerdings nicht. - Auf starkem Papier, gering gebräunt und kaum fleckig. Der empfindliche Seideneinband etwas zerschlissen und fleckig, der Schnitt mit hübschen Ziselierungen an den Ecken. *De Backer-Sommervogel VIII, 445. Gier/Janota 435. Lindner 11.2119.01. Meusel XIII, 5. - Vgl. Veith, Bibliotheca augustana, XI, 163 650 gr. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      New London, 1772. Original suede calf, hinges broken. Folio. Library ink stamp on titlepage; chipping at edges, remnants of contemporary ownership inscription at head of title. Text lightly foxed, contemporary annotations and underlining throughout. Overall good. In a black cloth clamshell box. The Brinley copy, from his famous sale in 1880, of an important volume of early Connecticut laws, printed by one of the premier colonial American printers, Timothy Green. This is the reprint of 1768, after the first edition of 1750, followed by session laws for several years. The first volume of laws for the Connecticut colony was printed in Cambridge in 1673, followed by volumes of acts and laws in 1702 (Boston), 1709, 1715, and 1729 (all New London). The present collection of laws was authorized by the colonial legislature, but was not completed until 1753. This reprint of 1768 bears the original date of imprint on the titlepage, but differs entirely from the 1750-53 original by including a table of ten pages preceding the text. The table in the present copy has been annotated to reflect the session laws which are bound in after the initial body of the text (these are continuously paginated).
