He further devotes a considerable section of the book to an "examination of false propositions" including a "reply to de Quesnay's Maximes in the Encyclopédie".

Minor foxing, one or two tiny marginal tears, but fine otherwise. </p><p>A long, densely written (ca. 1500 words) letter from French cartographic engineer and antiquarian François Pasumot, best known today as the co-creator, with Nicolas Desmarest (1725-1815), of the landmark geological "Map of a part of Auvergne, representing the lava flows, where basalt is found in prismatic and round forms . . . ," published as part of Desmarest&#39;s Mémoire sur l&#39;origine et la nature du basalt en grandes colonnes polygones (Mémoires de l&#39;Académie royale des sciences 1771 [1774]: 705-775). The Pasumot-Desmarest map "set a new standard for precise graphic representation of the positions of distinct kinds of rock, and played a role in emerging conceptions about geomorphological change and about the distribution of volcanic rocks" (Taylor, p. 129).</p><p>Pasumot devoted much of his time to the study of archeology and ancient geography, which he became interested in after the discovery of several ancient monuments in the Auxerre region of Burgundy, where he was then teaching. He was the author of numerous works on antiquarian subjects, the most important being Recueil de mémoires géographiques sur quelques antiquités de la Gaule (1765), in which he determined the topography of the ancient towns of Chora, Bandritum and Gergovia as well as the location of several sections of Roman road. The present letter is representative of Pasumot&#39;s activities in this area: In it, Pasumot obliges his correspondent with several long extracts, taking up nearly two pages of the letter, from his then-unpublished "Eloge" to fellow antiquarian the Comte de Caylus (1692-1765), whose seven-volume Recueil d&#39;antiquités égyptiennes, étruscanes, greques et romaines (1752-55) helped lay the groundwork for the development of modern methods of archeology and art history. Pasumot&#39;s letter ends with an "Extrait du testament de feu M. le Comte de Caylus: à Paris, le 15 juillet 1765" (Extract from the will of the late M. le Comte de Caylus, Paris, July 15, 1765), and a transcript of the inscription on Caylus&#39;s tomb, taken from the July 1769 number of the Journal des Scavants. Pasumot&#39;s "Eloge" to the Comte de Caylus, completed in 1766, remained in manuscript until after Pasumot&#39;s death, when it was included in the posthumous Dissertations et mémoires sur différens sujets d&#39;antiquité et d&#39;histoire (1810-13) edited by Grivaud de la Vincelle. Taylor, "New light on geological mapping in Auvernge during the eighteenth century: The Pasumot-Desmarest collaborabion," Revue d&#39;histoire des sciences 47 (1994): 129-136.

        Monde primitif, analysé et comparé avec le monde moderne; considéré dans son génie allégorique et dans les allégories auxquelles conduisit ce génie; précédé du plan general des diverses parties qui composeront ce monde primitif .

      Chez l'auteur, Boudet, Valleyre l'aîné, Veuve Duch, 1774 - 1782., Paris, - 9 volumi in-4. Leg. piena pelle dell&#146;epoca (eccetto per il vol. 2 legato in mezza pelle dell&#146;epoca). Dorsi a nervetti con fregi e titoli oro. Tagli rossi. Tracce d&#146;uso alle legature, qualche leggero alone al vol. 2. Buon esemplare, molto fresco. 5 antiporta e vignette di Marillier e Bornet, 2 carte geografiche ripiegate e 45 tavole incise. L&#146;opera è divisa in nove parti: Vol. 1: "Plan général et raisonné de l'ouvrage. et Génie allégorique et symbolique de L&#146;Antiquité" (1777 - Nouvelle édition); Vol. 2: "Grammaire Universelle et Comparative" (1774 - Edizione Originale); Vol. 3: "Origine du langage et de l'écriture" (1781 - Nouvelle édition); Vol. 4: "Calendrier ou Almanach" (1783 - Nouvelle édition); Vol. 5: "Dictionnaire Etymologique de la Langue Française" (1778 - Edizione Originale); Vol. 6: "Origines latines - 1ère partie" (1779 - Edizione Originale); Vol. 7: "Origines latines - 2de partie" (1780 - Edizione Originale); Vol. 8: "Dissertations mêlées - tome I" (1781 - Edizione Originale); Vol. 9: "Dictionnaire étymologique de la langue grecque" (1782 - Edizione Originale). Antoine Court de Gebelin, ex pastore protestante nato a Nimes, nel 1771 fu iniziato alla massoneria nella loggia parigina Les Amis Réunis e in seguito nella loggia Le Neuf Soeurs dove, nel 1778, fu testimone dell&#146;iniziazione di Voltaire e altri notevoli personaggi come l&#146;astronomo Lalande, lo scultore Houdon, il naturalista Lacépède, e l&#146;ambasciatore americano in Francia, Benjamin Franklin. Inoltre, Court de Gébelin fondò la Société Apollonienne, e fu tra i membri fondatori del Filalete, una fraternità esoterica con legami con la massoneria e la setta mistica Élus Coen. Nel suo "Monde primitif, analysé et comparé avec le monde moderne" (Il mondo primitivo, analizzato e confrontato con il mondo moderno), Court de Gebelin cerca di ricostruire e portare nuova luce sulla civiltà primordiale, e di dimostrare che questa civiltà è stata universale, intellettualmente avanzata, e spiritualmente illuminata in tutto il mondo. Studia principalmente la linguistica, presentando dizionari etimologici e discorsi sulle origini delle lingue parlate e scritte e delle loro origini universali, e la mitologia, discutendo le origini delle allegorie dell&#146;antichità e la storia del calendario dal punto di vista civile, religioso e mitologico. Presenta inoltre alcuni saggi sui Tarocchi, uno suo e un altro attribuito a "M. Le C. de M. ***" ( Louis-Raphaël-de Lucrèce Fayolle, Comte de Mellet). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Anleitung zu der Pflanzenkenntniss und derselben nützlichsten Anwendung. Mit hundert illuminirten Tafeln.

      Zürich, Verlag des Waysenhauses, 1774. Folio (366 x 230mm). pp. 129, (1, blank), 1 leaf of 'Entwurf der Tafeln', title with engraved vignette, 2 handcoloured engraved plates of floral detail and 101 fine handcoloured woodcuts on 100 leaves of flowering plants. Contemporary boards. First and only edition, documenting a remarkable survival. The 101 woodcuts are printed from the original blocks of Fuchs 'De Stirpium historia', 1542, the most celebrated herbal ever published. "The only apparent difference is the removal of the (printed) plant-names from the old plates and the printing of new ones at the bottom. It is interesting to compare the handcoloring in the eighteenth-century volume with that in its great sixteenth-century predecessor" (Hunt). In the preface Schinz explains how he discovered the original woodblocks of Fuchs and how they were coloured in the Zurich orphanage. The large woodcuts are beautifully hand-coloured. Christoph Salomon Schinz (1764-1847) was a Swiss physician and botanist at Zürich.//Hunt 640; Nissen BBI, 1761.
