        Contemplazione della natura del signor carlo bonnet... tradotta in italiano e corredata di note, e curiose osservazioni dall'abate spallanzani... in venezia, presso giovanni vitto, 1773

      Due volumi di cm. 18,5, pp. 152, 335 (1); vii (1) 348 (4). Solida legatura ottocentesca in mezza pelle. dorsi lisci con fregi e titoli in oro su doppio tassello. Esemplare in eccellente stato di conservazione. Edizione apparsa tre anni dopo l'originale italiano e da considerarsi il capolavoro del celebre naturalista di Ginevra (1720-93). La lunga prefazione dello Spallanzani che occupa le prime 152 pagine e le ricche note pongono di diritto quest'opera tra gli scritti dello scandianese, che fu tra l'altro grande amico del Bonnet. L'opera ebbe grandissimo successo in Italia e venne stampata più volte. (Cfr. D. Prandi, Bibliografia di L. Spallanzani).

Stolpe, 1773. 4:o. (8),16,1-786,(1) s. Samtida ngt nött men trevligt hfrbd med upphöjda bind och svart infärgat titelfält samt stänkta snitt. Ryggen blekt med ytliga sprickor kring titeletiketten och bakre pärmen med en större fläck. Inlagan med enstaka lagerfläckar och mindre bläckfläckar. Lagningar längst ned på titelbladet och på s. (7), i övre marginalen på s. 23 och i yttermarginalen på s. 317. En bläckfläck i texten på s. 145 och en svag fuktfläck i nedre hörnet på s. 169-76. En lite fläckig råkant i yttermarginalen på s. 475. Med Carl Fredrik Mennanders grav. exlibris. Från Östanå.. Abraham Sahlstedt (1716-76) blev 1747, med arbetet "Försök till en swensk grammatika" som merit, skrivbiträde i Vetenskapsakademien. Han fick av denna med tiden i uppdrag att utarbeta föreliggande ordbok, vars utgivande emellertid drog ut på tiden. Detta berodde inte minst på de utdragna och många diskussionerna i akademien med den språkintresserade A. J. von Höpken. Inblandningen i språkfrågor visar på Vetenskapsakademiens vittfamnande intressen. Carl Fredrik Mennander (1712-86), biskop i Åbo 1757 och ärkebiskop och prokansler i Uppsala 1775 samt ledamot av Vetenskapsakademien. Mennander skänkte 528 volymer till Åbo akademiska bibliotek bl.a. många rara manuskript och han efterlämnade ett stort och mycket dyrbart bibliotek som såldes på auktion 1788-89. Denna bok har sannolikt via Mennanders son C. F. Fredenheim gått i arv till Boströmarna på Östanå

        Plate 14 (feet) from "Corps complet d'anatomie." Matted and framed

      J. B. H. LeClerc Nancy: J. B. H. LeClerc, 1773. First printing. No Dust Jacket. Gautier d'Agoty, Arnauld-Eloi. Plate 14 (feet) from Corps complet d'anatomie (Nancy: J. B. H. LeClerc, 1773). Mezzotint printed in colors by Gautier d'Agoty's 4-color method. Plate size approx. 535 x 390 mm. Archivally matted and framed. Arnaud-Eloi Gautier d'Agoty was the second son of the celebrated Jacques-Fabien Gautier d'Agoty (1717-86), who for thirty years held the royal privilege for color printing in France. J. F. Gautier d'Agoty was (or claimed to be) the inventor of the four-color method (red, blue, yellow and black) of printing mezzotints in color, an improvement on the three-color method devised in the early part of the 18th century by Jacques Christophe Le Blon. (d. 1741). Gautier d'Agoty obtained the color printing privilege in 1742, and over the next three decades he and his associates, including his son Arnauld-Eloi, issued a series of illustrated works, primarily on human anatomy, that were as radically original and dramatic in their size and artistic composition as they were in their manner of production. The series of large anatomical works issued by the Gautier d'Agotys concluded with Arnaud-Eloi's Corps complet d'anatomie (1773), "a major work of great merit and satisfaction . . . [The work's] fifteen plates follow a scheme of progress, from the classical figures at the start, to skeletal hands and feet; or we can see it as a strip performance, from fully clad nudes by stages to muscle and bone" (Franklin, A Catalogue of Early Colour Printing [1977], pp. 49-50). 40099

Allt som utkom av Nordins kritiska arbete om äldre tvivelaktiga källor till Sveriges historia, här med Fants fortsättning, publicerad nära 40 år senare. Den första delen är Nordins egen disputation under Johan Ihres presidium. Här behandlas Konunga- och hövdinga styrelsen. I den andra och mest berömda delen, med Erik Johan Dillner som respondent, avslöjar Nordin Hjalmers och Ramers saga. Denna presenterades för första gången av Lucas Halpap i en dissertation under Johannes Bilberg 1690, och sedan stort utgiven av Peringskiöld 1701 under titeln "Historia Hjalmari regis Biarmlandiæ atque Thulemarkiæ, ex fragmento runici Ms.ti literis recentioribus descripta". Här, 70 år senare, kunde den av Nordin avslöjas som ett falsarium.

Edges of boards with single gilt line. All edges gilt. Corners abit bumped and a bit of overall wear. Inner hinges a bit weak. Internally very fine and clean. All in all a very fine copy indeed. (4), 210; 176; 167 pp. With all three half-titles, all three title-pages and all three indexes, as well as the introduction.. The rare first edition, first issue (though Tchermerzine mentions an unknown 2-volume-edition form the same year - this edition has never been verified), of one of d'Holbach's most important works, his influential "social" and political continuation of his seminal main work "Systeme de la nature" - the bible of materialism. D'Holbach (1723-1789), who was raised by a wealthy uncle, whom he inherited, together with his title of Baron, in 1753, maintained one of the most famous salons in Paris. This salon became the social and intellectual centre for the Encyclopédie, which was edited by Diderot and d'Alembert, whom he became closely connected with. D'Holbach himself also contributed decisively to the Encyclopédie, with at least 400 signed contributions, and probably as many unsigned, between 1752 and 1765. The "Côterie holbachique" or "the café of Europe", as the salon was known, attracted the most brilliant scientists, philosophers, writers and artists of the time (e.g. Diderot, d'Alembert, Helvetius, Voltaire, Hume, Sterne etc, etc.), and it became one of the most important gathering-places for the exchange of philosophical, scientific and political views under the "ancient régime". Apart from developing several foundational theories of seminal scientific and philosophical value, D'Holbach became known as one of the most skilled propagators and popularizers of scientific and philosophical ideas, promoting scientific progress and spreading philosophical ideas in a new and highly effective manner. D'Holbach was himself the most audacious philosophe of this circle. During the 1760's he caused numerous anticlerical tracts (written in large, but not entirely, by himself) to be clandestinely printed abroad and illegally circulated in France. His philosophical masterpiece, the "Système de la nature, ou des lois du monde physique et du monde moral", a methodological and intransigent affirmation of materialism and atheism, appeared anonymously in 1770" (D.S.B. VI:468), as did the social and political follow-up of it, the famous "Systême social" in 1773. That is to say, Mirabeau whom he had used as the author on the "System of Nature" in 1770 is not mentioned in the "Social System", on the title-page of which is merely stated "By the Author of "Systême de la Nature". As the theories of d'Holbach's two systematic works were at least as anticlerical and unaccepted as those of his smaller tracts, and on top of that so well presented and so convincing, it would have been dangerous for him to print any of them under his own name, and even under the name of the city or printer. Thus, "Systême de la Nature" appeared pseudonomously under the name of the secretary of the Académie Francaise, J.B. Mirabaud, who had died 10 years earlier, and under a fictive place of printing, namely London instead of Amsterdam. "He could not publish safely under his own name, but had the ingenious idea of using the names of recently dead French authors. Thus, in 1770, his most famous book, "The System of Nature", appeared under the name Jean-Baptiste Mirabaud." (PMM 215), and so the next "System" also appeared in the same manner three years later.In his "Systême de la Nature", d'Holbach had presented philosophical materialism in an actual system for the first time and had created a work that dared unite the essence of all the essential material of the English and French Enlightenment and incorporate it into a closed materialistic system; on the basis of a completely materialistic and atheistic foundation, he provided the modern world with a moral and ethic philosophy, the effects of which were tremendous. It is this materialism and atheism that he continues three years later in his next systematic work "Systême social", through which politics, morality, and sociology are also incorporated into his system and take the place of the Christianity that he had so fiercely attacked earlier on. In this great work he extends his ethical views to the state and continues the description of human interest from "Systême de la Nature" by developing a notion of the just state (by d'Holbach calle "ethocracy") that is to secure general welfare. "Système social (1773; "Social System") placed morality and politics in a utilitarian framework wherein duty became prudent self-interest." (Encyclopaedia Brittanica). "Holbach's foundational view is that the most valuable thing a person seeking self-preservation can do is to unite with another person: "Man is of all beings the most necessary to man" (Sysème social, 76; cf. Spinoza's Ethics IVP35C1, C2, and S). Society, when it is just, unites for the common purpose of preservation and the securing of welfare, and society contracts with government for this purpose." (SEP).As the "Systême de la Nature" had been condemned to burning in the year of its publication, so the "Systême social" was on the list of books to be confiscated already in 1773, and it was placed on the Index of the Church in August 1775. As the "Systême de la Nature", the "Systême social" is thus also of great scarcity. Another edition of the work appeared later the same year, in 12mo. Tchermerzine says that "Il ya une édition, que nous ne connaissons pas, en 2 vol. in-8. C'est sans doute l'originale." The present edition was reprinted the following year, in 1774.Tschermerzine VI:246; Graesse III:317; Barbier IV:622 (only listing later editions)
