        Die beste Welt. Eine Theologische, Philosophische, Praktische Abhandlung aus dem Spanischen Grundtext des Don Ranudo . de Collibradoz, Beysitzer der heiligen Inquisition, übersetzet; und mit einer Zuschrift und Register begleitet von Johann Albrecht Ralph (d. i.

      Ohne Ort, 1773. - Erste deutsche Übersetzung des 'Candide'; Neudruck der ersten, 1761 erschienenen deutschen Ausgabe, die 17 Jahre vor der Übersetzung durch Mylius erschienenen war. Fast zeilengenauer, kaum veränderter und etwas kompresser gesetzter Druck, unter Auslassung der Vorrede. Die Auflage beider Drucke war wohl winzig, und von Meusel, der irrig 1751 als Erscheinungsjahr angibt, über Goedeke, die ADB, Marbachs Weltliteraturkatalog, das DBI bis hin zum KNLL (das erst eine spätere Ausgabe von 1776 nennt) wird diese Übersetzung nur ungenau oder gar nicht verzeichnet. Von Voltaire als trivialer Scherz bezeichnet, wurde der Roman bald "viel gelesen, belacht, verdammt, gelobt, interpretiert, illustriert, auf den Index gesetzt, mißverstanden und in seiner bleibenden Aktualität erst spät erkannt. Stilistisch und thematisch von souveräner Vielseitigkeit, die Geschichtliches, Philosophisches und Dichterisches vereint, ist die Geschichte der Abenteuer des gutgläubigen Candide in einer Welt wechselnder Realitäten und Utopien auf den ersten Blick ein gelungener Spaß. (Aber) die ostentativ-boshafte Lustigkeit täuscht nicht über die latente Problematik der Geschichte hinweg . Das Werk ist doppelsinnig und widersprüchlich, sowohl pessimistisch, zynisch und skeptisch als auch optimistisch. Gutes und Böses halten sich die Waage in der von Voltaire beschriebenen Welt. Er entlarvt Utopien, Heilslehren und jedes Paradies auf Erden als Illusion und setzt nach kritischer Prüfung allen Seinsspekulationen den Mut zur Arbeit, wenn nicht als letzten Sinn des Lebens, so doch als Möglichkeit, es mit Würde zu bestehen, entgegen" (KNLL). Voltaire hatte seinen Roman als Übersetzung aus dem Deutschen eines Dr. Ralph ausgegeben. Der Übersetzer, der preußische Kriegsrat und Berliner Polzeidirektor Philippi (1721-1791) trat nun seinerseits als dieser Dr. Ralph auf und gab seine Übersetzung aus dem Französischen wiederum als Übertragung aus dem Spanischen aus, versah das Ganze frech mit einer fingierten Zensur-Approbationen sowie mit Gleichnissen zeitgenössischer Dichter wie Gellert u. a. – Fleckig bzw. gebräunt. Eindruck "Deutsche Lese-Bibliothek" unter der Jahreszahl auf dem Titel. Die Widmung datiert: 1. April 1758. – Äußerst selten und nur in zwei deutschen Bibliotheken vorhanden. Das Exemplar der Berliner Staatsbibliothek ist Kriegsverlust. – Vgl. Fromm 26940.

        Essays concerning iron and steel:

      the first, containing observations on American sand-iron: the second, observations, founded on experiments, on common iron-ore, with the method of reducing it first into pig or sow-metal, and then into bar-iron; on the sort of iron proper to be converted into good steel, and the method of refining that bar-steel, and the method of refining that bar-steel by fusion, so as to render it fit for the more curious purposes: with an account of Mr. Reaumur's method of softening cast-iron; and an Appendix, discovering a more perfect method of charring pit-coal, so as to render it a proper succedaneum for charred wood-coal.A valuable contemporary contribution to the rather fraught, and certainly competitive, early development of modern steel manufacture in England. Although Benjamin Huntsman (1704-1776) of Sheffield has been usually credited with the invention of crucible steel, or 'cast steel' as it was known at the time, the little known Henry Horne, a London-based cutler seems also to have played a part in developing new methods of steel manufacture at about the same time. Surprisingly, Horne mentions in his Essays neither Huntsman nor Samuel Walker, another contemporary experimenter in crucible steel making. In his book, Horne claims originality in his own process and seems to have perfected an efficient and commercial steel razor manufacturing business in London, the steel itself being produced with a highly polished surface. The steel used, Horne claimed, was "vastly superior" to that produced by his rival, John Waller, and which Horne was able to supply to the London cutlers "at a very moderate price". Waller eventually took the process to Sheffield and was able to undercut Horne's prices, resulting, inevitably, in substantial loss of business to the London manufacturer. Horne, while now hardly a footnote to industrial history, was certainly an early cast steel maker, although there is nothing in his account to suggest a date earlier than 1765, by which time others in Sheffield were also practising the art.12mo., (2) + 223 + (1)pp., wanting a half-title, short tear to inner margin of title (no loss), inner margin (gutter) of following leaf stained, contemporary sheep, stamped in blind, some wear to joints else a sound copy., 1773.

        A complete set of Baskerville's classics, in matching Kalthoeber bindings

      Birmingham: Baskerville, 1757-, 1773. Seven volumes, quarto, in matching full contemporary red straight-grain morocco bindings, almost certainly by Kalthoeber, elaborate gilt borders on covers, gilt-decorated spines in 7 compartments, gilt-lettered in 3, all edges gilt and gauffred, blue-grey paper endpapers; a remarkably fine and compelling set, the first volume extra-illustrated by the insertion of an engraved title page by J. Goeree after G. Valk from an unidentified edition of Virgil. 'Astonishing all the librarians of Europe'. A glorious set of this great series of printed classics, a late eighteenth-century high point in printing and publishing and generally seen as Baskerville's greatest achievement alongside his famous Bible. The set consists of the first editions of each of Baskerville's classical authors (Virgil, Juvenal & Persius, Horace, Catullus, Terence, Sallust & Florus, and Lucretius),The superb bindings are unsigned, but the tools, materials, and style clearly indicate the work of Christian Kalthoeber, the famous German craftsman producing some of the finest bindings of the period in London during the 1780s and 1790s.The beauty of Baskerville's books lies not only in his celebrated and unmistakeable types, still honoured today in computer-produced fonts, but also in paper and ink, both manufactured under his supervision. This magnificent set is the result of the addition of these to Kalthoeber's distinctive and beautiful style of binding.'The famous quarto 'Virgil,' the first of those 'magnificent editions' which, in the words of Macaulay, 'went forth to astonish all the librarians of Europe' (History, ch. iii.), appeared in 1757, and is not too highly praised by Dibdin as 'one of the most finished specimens of typography' (Introduction to the Classics, ii. 554).A beautiful quarto 'Horace' appeared in 1770, and seems to have sold fairly well. He was thus tempted in 1772 to bring out a series of quarto editions of Latin authors Catullus, Tibullus, Propertius, Lucretius, Terence and next year Sallust and Florus. These noble quartos are said to be incorrect texts; for their magnificence of type, paper, ink, and presswork there can only be unqualified praise. Nothing finer had yet been attempted in England.''The typography of Baskerville,' says Dibdin, 'is eminently beautiful... He united in a singularly happy manner the elegance of Plantin with the clearness of the Elzevirs... He seems to have been extremely curious in the choice of his paper and ink: the former being in general the fruit of Dutch manufacture, and the latter partaking of a peculiarly soft lustre, bordering on purple. In his italic letter, whether capital or small, I think he stands unrivalled; such elegance, freedom, and perfect symmetry being in vain to be looked for among the specimens of Aldus and Colinseus' (Introduction to the Classics, ii. 556).' (DNB).The modern study of Baskerville's printing is Philip Gaskell's Bibliography in which these appear as numbers 1 (first printing on wove paper, and his "first and perhaps finest book", with 20 additional names in the subscribers' list, a number unrecorded by Gaskell); 15; 39 (with engraved vignette title page, frontispiece, and 4 engraved plates by Gravelot, the latter appearing in only half of the edition, and on the higher of 2 qualities of paper); 43; 44; 46; 50; and 51.

        Hands (plate XIII from "Corps complet d'anatomie"). Matted and framed

      Nancy: J.B.H. LeClerc, 1773. First printing. Gautier d'Agoty, Arnauld-Eloi. Plate 13 (hands) 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, pp. 49-50). Among the most brilliant of these plates is the present one showing five skeletal and muscular hands; "the space and execution of this raise it to a place among the finest plates of any sort achieved by the Gautier family" (Franklin, p. 50). 40098

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("A. Rosetti / Cpllmstr").

      O. O. u. D.. 1½ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt (Wasserzeichen: doppelstrichige Antiquaversalien "SKW"). 4to.. An einen nicht ermittelten Adressaten: "Wohlgebohrener sonders zuverehrender Herr! Gleich nach Eingange Ihres ersten Briefes, worinn uns die Hoffnung, Sie samt wehrtesten Frauen Gemahlinn bey eintrethenden Ostern hier bey uns zu haben, benommen wurde, entschlossen sich hiesige Herrschaft sich anderwärts eine Sängerin von Range zu beschreiben, die nun täglich erwarthet wird. Jetzt steht aber dahin, ob man wegen einem Engagement von beeden Seithen einig werden kan; voraus läßt sichs nicht bestimmen. Wollen sie mir erlauben, Sie nach Ostern von dem Außgange zu berichten? Um selbige Zeit wird auch die Wiedergenesung der Madame erfolgt seyn, und so kan sichs sehr wohl schicken, daß ich Sie bitte die Tour hieher zu machen. Halten Sie sich ja nicht durch diesen Vorfall zurückgesetzt; denn es war Nothwendigkeit eine Sängerinn, die Oster Musiken zu singen, zu haben; ausser diesem würden wir hier gern die Niederkunft Ihrer Frau Gemahlin abgewartet haben, um so mehr, da uns das vorzügliche Talent und übrige vortreffliche Eigenschaften derselben gar zu wohl bekannt sind. Wir wollen also die Sache noch nicht als decidirt ansehen - kurze Zeit wird entscheiden, ob ich das Vergnügen haben soll oder könne Sie samt Madame persönlich kennen zu lernen [...]". - Seit 1773 war Rosetti Kontrabassist in der Hofkapelle des Fürsten Kraft Ernst zu Oettingen-Wallerstein. In Paris wurde er gefeiert; er verkehrte mit Gluck und Piccinni. Nach dem Weggang Joseph Reichas wurde Rosetti 1785 zum Kapellmeister der Wallersteiner Hofkapelle ernannt und avancierte zu einem der beliebtesten Komponisten seiner Zeit: "Rosetti's contemporaries ranked him with Haydn and Mozart" (New Grove XVI, 206). Von wachsender Verschuldung geplagt, wechselte er 1789 an den Hof des Herzogs von Mecklenburg-Schwerin, der sein Gehalt verdreifachte.

        Fables nouvelles

      1773. DORAT, Claude Joseph. Fables nouvelles. Two volumes. [xxii], [2], 176; [177]-309, [3] pp. Illustrated with 2 engraved title-pages, 1 full-page plate (repeated), 1 title-page fleuron, 99 vignettes, and 99 culs-de-lampe all executed after designs by Pierre-Clément Marillier. 8vo., 204 x 131 mm, bound nineteenth-century calf-backed boards. A La Haye, Et se trouve à Paris: Chez Delalain, 1773. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, first issue, of Dorat's Fables nouvelles. Gordon N. Ray described this edition as an "eighteenth-century masterpiece of miniature illustration." Cohen-De Ricci claimed that this work remains the "chef-d'oeuvre de Marillier, sous le rapport de la finesse de l'exécution et de l'esprit qui règne dans tous les jolis sujets qui l'ornent." Pierre-Clément Marillier (1740-1808) was praised by Dorat for these delightful interpretations of the author's verse. It was with good reason that Baron Roger Portalis described this artist as "The Master of the Infinitely Small." Of the two-hundred and two engravings herein there are indeed many masterpieces in miniature. Lewine quite simply states that, "In delicacy of execution, as well as in the beauty of the embellishments, the book rivals Les Baisers and must be regarded as Marillier's masterpiece." A very nice copy with fine impressions of all the plates. Lewine 150-151. Cohen-De Ricci 313-316. Ray, French 43 (with 4 reproductions). Portalis Les dessinateurs au XVIIIe siècle I, 367

        Oeuvres de Molière avec des remarques grammaticales; des avertissemens et des observations sur chaque pièce, par M. Bret

      First printing of this edition made famous by Bret. Illustrated book of the famous portrait of Molière etched Cathelin Mignaud from the frontispiece of the first volume, 6 florets as well as 33 fine figures of Moreau Le Jeune. Undoubtedly one of the finest editions of Molière, "The sequence of figures Moreau is one of the estimated" (Cohen, 717). Pages titles in red and black. Full brown calf period. Back smooth ornate pedestal. Parts of title and volume number in red morocco. Golden caster on cuts. Triple gilt frames in dishes. Interior lace. Some corners very lightly bumped. Beautiful set comfortably established in a rich contemporary binding. This edition, much sought after for the quality of its artwork (Cochin Moreau was with one of the most loved illustrators of his day) is also good for the correction of the text that must be in the heat of Bret; it has in fact carefully revised texts based on the original editions; notes and comments, witness his work is no less interesting, and make this year one of the jewels among those of Molière.

      Amsterdam, J.C. Sepp, 1773. 3 volumes (bound in 4). Folio (445 x 275mm). pp. (4), xiv, 64; (4), 1-184; (2), 185-484; (4), 236, with 1 double-page handcoloured engraved plate 'Marmer-Groeve na by Solnhofen', some engraved head- & woodcut tail-pieces and 272 hand-coloured or colour-printed engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spines in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label, marbled sides (very minor restoration to spines). A fine copy of 'one of the best illustrated and most complete accounts on fossils...' (Landwehr 95). "The outstanding work of this period is undoubtedly that of Knorr and Walch in four volumes ... The first volume was written by the Nürnberg collector and artist, Georg Wolfgang Knorr (born 1705, died 1761), and the other three volumes were prepared after the death of Knorr by Professor Walch of Jena ..." (Zittel pp. 21-22). The rare Dutch edition of the German original 'Naturgeschichte der Versteinerungen' (Nuremberg 1768-1773) with the same beautiful plates. Volume II almost entirely concerns fossil shells. "It is hardly possible to exaggerate the beauty and fidelity of the representations of the fossils in his plates. No such illustrations had ever before appeared, and they have hardly been surpassed since. By delicate lines on the copper plates the most minute intricacies of structure are reproduced, and by thin washes of colour the tints of the original specimens are represented. His renderings of dentritic markings, landscape-marble, fossil plants, crustacea, crinoids, fishes and other fossils are admirable examples of the union of artistic workmanship with scientific accuracy ..." (Geikie, Founders of Geology, pp. 101-102). 'The extraordinary quality of the plates, representing the eighteenth-century continuation of the tradition of Dürer, led to an expansion of the work by Walch, as well as to French and Dutch editions... the detail and accuracy of Knorr's engravings not only made possible zoological classification but firmly established the distinction between fossils of organic and sports of nature' (DSB)./The books portrays and describes a.o fossils in the cabinets of famous collectors such as Walch at Jena, Adam Hildebrand at Naumberg, Jac. Theod. Klein, Johann Hermannus at Regensburg, S.R. Genzmer at Stargard, as well as the large collection of Casimir Schmidel.//Nissen ZBI, 2233; Ward & Carozzi 1285; Landwehr 95.
