      1776. Paris, Gogué & Née de la Rochelle, 1776. iv, xxxii, 382 pp. 8vo. Contemporary mottled calf, spine goldtooled. Hinges a bit worn but holding well. Priced throughout in a contemporary hand and with some annotations. A good copy. Remarkable auction catalogue containing 4542 lots of books and 51 lots of prints; a very large collection totalling over 21,000 books. The collection is particularly rich in sciences. From a bibliographical point of view this is an important catalogue. Brunet says: "Ce catalogue, rédigé par le libraire Gouget, est remarquable parce qu'on y a adopté un nouveau système de bibliographie qui n'a pas d'ailleurs, et avec raison, trouvé d'imitateurs. La classe des Belles-lettres est supprimée et figure avec les Sciences et Arts dont on a fait deux grandes divisions, la première contenant les sciences proprement dites, la seconde les arts dans laquelle se trouvent fondues les Belles-lettres. La jurisprudence est placée après l'histoire, tandis qu'il est plus logique de faire venir la lègislation avant le récit des événements." [c.f.

        Raccolta di varie composizioni per la degnissima promozione al vescovato e principato di Trento di sua altezza reverendissima monsignor Pietro Michele Vigilio del S.R.I. conte di Thunn, ed Hichenstein Ec., Marchese di Castellaro, &c. &c.

      Nella stamperia vescovile Monauniana, Trento. 1776 - A c. [pi greco]3-4 dedic. a Giovanni Vigilio di Thunn. Tit. sull?occhietto: Raccolta di componimenti poetici. Ritratto inciso in antiporta del vescovo. Ultimo Principe Vescovo a governare di fatto sul principato trentino, fin dalla sua elezione pratica la via delle riforme, in un periodo storico caratterizzato da profondi mutamenti politici e istituzionali. Nel corso di una missione a Vienna, nel 1777, firma con l?imperatrice Maria Teresa, un accordo che assoggetta il principato alla legislazione austriaca, in materia commerciale e fiscale. Pochi anni dopo, nel 1781, offre all?imperatore Giuseppe II la sovranità sul territorio trentino in cambio di un vitalizio personale. Quest?azione di Pietro Vigilio Thunn, diretta al compimento dell?inevitabile processo di assorbimento del piccolo principato nell?amministrazione asburgica, non ha seguito, ma viene fortemente criticata dalle forze trentine più conservatrici. Con l?avvicinarsi dell?esercito di Napoleone, nel 1796, il Principe Vescovo si allontana da Trento, senza più tornarci, nemmeno quando la situazione antecedente è ripristinata dall?intervento delle truppe austriache. Incapace di mutare il corso degli eventi, Thunn non può che assistere impotente all?annullamento politico del principato, la cui esistenza sarà d?ora in poi solo sulla carta fino alla sua definitiva soppressione nel 1803. Ben curato tipograficamente con i componimenti in cornici, uso di iniziali ornate e fregi. Bella legatura in cartoncino semirigido dorato coeva. Opera molto rara. Formato: 68, LXXII p., [1] ritr., [1] c. di tav. ripieg. 4° (23 cm), cart. Buono, ordinari segni d?uso e del tempo.

        Sylva: or, a Discourse of Forest-Trees,

      York: by A. Ward, for J. Dodsley, T. Cadell, J. Robson, and T. Durham, in London, and W. Creech and J. Balfour, Edinburgh, 1776. York: by A. Ward, for J. Dodsley, T. Cadell, J. Robson, and T. Durham, in London, and W. Creech and J. Balfour, Edinburgh,, 1776. and the Propagation of Timber in His Majesty's Dominions: as it was delivered in the Royal Society on the 15th Day of October, 1662, Upon Occasion of certain Quaeries propounded to that illustrious Assembly, by the Honourable the Principal Officers and Commissioners of the Navy. Together With An Historical Account of the Sacredness and Use of Standing Groves. With Notes by A Hunter M.D. F.R.S. Large quarto (315 × 240 mm). Half calf to style, edges entirely uncut. With the original subscriber's ticket signed by Hunter, and with the original prepublication advertisement leaf loosely inserted. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 40 engraved plates of which 1 folding, folding letterpress table. Some light foxing and offsetting, a few inserted botanical specimens, an excellent copy. First Hunter edition, complete with the original advertisement leaf and subscriber's ticket as receipt. First published in 1664 and famously the first book to be printed by order of the Royal Society, Sylva was his most important work to be published during Evelyn's lifetime (his famous diary not being published until 1818). During the 1640s and 1650s production of glass and iron increased rapidly and the wood used to fire the furnaces and factories was not being replaced by fresh planting. This led to a serious shortage of wood from which the Navy could construct ships. Evelyn appealed to the king for a concerted campaign of reforestation and claimed in his preface that he had induced landowners to plant many millions of trees. In his own preface, Hunter remarks that "soon after the publication of the Sylva... the Spirit for Planting increased to a high degree; and there is reason to believe that many of our ships, [used] in the last war... were constructed from Oaks planted at that time.

        Vanto Delli Cocchieri Napolitani o Sia Dell'Arte nobilissima, che tengono essi, in domare li Cavalli, e guidarli sotto le Carrozze, sopra Qualsisia Nazione. Consacrato al merito singolare del Signor Gaetano Pizzella Cocchiero Maggiore, e Maestro di Stalla di S. E. Il Signor Principe di Francavilla . . .

      Giuseppe Coda, Napoli 1776 - Scarce Neapolitan equestrian title, with only five libraries appearing to have it on OCLC FirstServe. 8vo. 20 by 15 cm. xi, 194 pp. The book is a cross between a primer on horses and coaching and a celebration of the Neapolitan tradition in particular, with special homage to Cajetanus Pezzella, a then renowned horseman and equerry to the Prince of Francavilla. The book has an element also of the hoary Italianate "mirror" book, a self-help book for rulers to gentlemen instructing them on how to behave properly and excel in their role. Novi argues in essence that the dedication of a Pezzella is a sine qua non for mastery in horsemanship while lamenting that such an accomplishment may not be rewarded with heightened social status. Of perhaps greatest interest in the work is how Novi identifies a special "code of honor" amongst the cocchieri napolitani. No less a figure than Benedetto Croce has said that this code serves as a parable of Neapolitan republican character. Light occasional foxing. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The American Atlas: or, A Geographical Description of the Whole Continent of America: wherein are delineated at Large, its Several Regions, Countries, States, and Islands; and Chiefly the British Colonies

      London: Printed and Sold by R. Sayer and J. Bennett, 1776 - Folio (558 × 373 mm) Late 18th-, early 19th-century blind-ruled half calf, marbled boards, attractive violet and sepia, flower-patterned pastedowns. A little rubbed on the boards, the corners through, splitting to the joints and chipping head and tail of the spine, some stabilisation and restoration, light toning to the maps, some faint offsetting, a few short splits to edges and on the folds, a couple of minor professional repairs, else a very good copy. Letterpress title and index leaf. 22 engraved maps on 48 sheets (all folding or double-page except for one single-page) by Henry Mouzon, Joshua Fry & Peter Jefferson, William Scull, Thomas Jefferys, Samuel Holland and others, hand-coloured in outline. First issue of the 1776 edition, published one year after the first, most maps in this atlas are dated 1775, with some dated 1774. "The chief publication used by English and American officers during the American Revolution" (Karpinski), with large maps of 11 of the 13 colonies, and of French Canada. As Geographer to the Prince of Wales, and subsequently the King, Jefferys had unparalleled access to the latest surveys of the American colonies and "is remembered in particular for some of the most important eighteenth-century maps of the Americas, a series given cohesion and impetus by the preliminary hostilities and eventual outbreak of the Seven Years' War." (ODNB). After Jefferys' death in November 1771, his business passed to Robert Sayer and John Bennett, who, in 1775, issued all of Jefferys' separately issued maps in atlas form for the first time, under the umbrella title The American Atlas. This is considered to be the most important eighteenth-century atlas for America, described by Walter Ristow as "one of the most authoritative and comprehensive atlases of America a geographical description of the whole continent of America, as portrayed in the best available maps in the latter half of the eighteenth century as a major cartographic reference work it was, very likely, consulted by American, English, and French civilian administrators and military officers during the Revolution". The geographical knowledge of America gathered here was to have impact not only on the strategy of the War of Independence, but also influenced the course of future treaty negotiations. The maps comprise: 1,2,3: Braddock Mead (alias John Green). "A Chart of North and South America, including the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans " Published 10 June 1775.

He was later professor of Syriac at the College de France. This is the first encyclopaedia of the Islamic world, from Arabia & Persia to the Maghreb & al-Andalus.The subjects; history, biographies, art, politics, traditions, sects, geography etc., are arranged alphabetically and, crucially, are based for the first time on original sources, Arabic, Persian and Turkish, which are listed in a 2-page bibliography.

In it he stresses the erudition and originality of the work. There are other editions of 1777-79 (4 vols. quarto), and 1781. Binding somewhat scuffed, with slight loss at head and tail of spine, one corner bumped, upper margins of a few leaves at beginning damp-stained, nonetheless a very good copy, clean and crisp, of a landmark in Islamic studies.

      London: Robert Sayer & John Bennett, 1776 London: Robert Sayer & John Bennett, 1776. unbound. Map. Engraving with original color wash.

This British map extends the boundaries of Quebec into New England at a key point in the beginning of the Revolution. Captain Jonathan Carver (1732-1780) was a traveler, surveyor and cartographer who made this map based on his travels for Thomas Jeffery's American Atlas. Robert Sayer (1725-1794) was an important English publisher of maps, portraits, and nautical engravings. Partnering with John Bennett around the 1760s, the two published the works of well-known cartographers such as Kitchen, Jefferys, Belling, d'Anville and others. This is the first state of this scarce map.

      Eisler 259; cf. Lex. der Pädagogik II, pp. 216-220. First edition of an extensive essay on the study of philosophy, by Johann Friedrich Herbart (1776-1841), presenting philosophy not as metaphysical, but as the basis for all science. It provides a frame of thinking and a classification by means of comparison and arrangement of notions and variations; philosophy is so to speak the "grammar of thinking". He is further convinced that a talent for the study of philosophy should be already present at a young age and that it should gradually grow by means of other scholarly studies.Binding slightly rubbed; stamp on title-page.

      Napoli: Giuseppe Coda, 1776. Napoli: Giuseppe Coda, 1776. First Edition. Paper on card (semi-hardcover). Very Good. Scarce Neapolitan equestrian title, with only five libraries appearing to have it on OCLC FirstServe. 8vo. 20 by 15 cm. xi, 194 pp. The book is a cross between a primer on horses and coaching and a celebration of the Neapolitan tradition in particular, with special homage to Cajetanus Pezzella, a then renowned horseman and equerry to the Prince of Francavilla. The book has an element also of the hoary Italianate "mirror" book, a self-help book for rulers to gentlemen instructing them on how to behave properly and excel in their role. Novi argues in essence that the dedication of a Pezzella is a sine qua non for mastery in horsemanship while lamenting that such an accomplishment may not be rewarded with heightened social status. Of perhaps greatest interest in the work is how Novi identifies a special "code of honor" amongst the cocchieri napolitani. No less a figure than Benedetto Croce has said that this code serves as a parable of Neapolitan republican character. Light occasional foxing.

        A New Map of the Province Of Quebec, according According to the Royal Proclamation, of the 7th of October, 1763, from the French Surveys Connected with those Made after the War by Captain Carver, and others in His Majesty's Service

      London: Robert Sayer & John Bennett, 1776. London: Robert Sayer & John Bennett, 1776. unbound. Map. Engraving with original color wash. Page measures This map shows the Province of Quebec as a newly acquired English territory according to the Treaty of Paris at the end of the French Indian War. Includes four lovely trompe l'oiel insets of the Isles of Montreal, Plan of Montreal, The City of Quebec, and the Course of the St. Lawrence. This British map extends the boundaries of Quebec into New England at a key point in the beginning of the Revolution. Captain Jonathan Carver (1732-1780) was a traveler, surveyor and cartographer who made this map based on his travels for Thomas Jeffery's American Atlas. Robert Sayer (1725-1794) was an important English publisher of maps, portraits, and nautical engravings. Partnering with John Bennett around the 1760s, the two published the works of well-known cartographers such as Kitchen, Jefferys, Belling, d'Anville and others. This is the first state of this scarce map.

        VIAGGIO PITTORICO E STORICO AI TRE LAGHI MAGGIORE, DI LUGANO, E COMO. Col corso del fiume Adda e Ticino. Opera dedicata a Sua Eccellenza il Feld - Maresciallo Conte Enrico di Bellegarde, I.R. Presidente del Consiglio Aulico.

      presso Francesco Bernucca (Contrada dei Tre Re, n. 4091) s.d. (prima metà XIX secolo). In - 8 oblungo (mm. 242x339), mz pelle coeva (restaur.), fregi e tit. oro su tassello al dorso. L?Album contiene: un frontespizio inciso e 50 magnifiche tavole di vedute, numerosiss. disegnate dal vero da Friedrich Lose (1776 - 1833) ed incise all?acquatinta da Carolina Lose (1784 - 1837), e anche vedute disegnate da Heinrich Adam (1787 - 1862) - G.B. Bosio - G. Castellini - Gaetano Zancon ed inc. all?acquatinta da A. Biasioli - Ruigi Rados (1773 - 1840) - G. A. Sasso - Bussi e Fumagalli. Ciascuna tavola è accompagnata da un foglio a stampa di testo storico - descrittivo, con il numero romano della tavola cui si riferisce. Stupendo album, di grande rarità, che fornisce una documentazione iconografica tra le più complete sui tre Laghi e sulle montagne circostanti. Si conoscono anche esemplari con diverso numero di tavole, che venivano inserite nella raccolta in base alla loro disponibilità al momento della vendita presso l?editore. Cfr. Brunet,V,1168 e Graesse,VII,295 che citano l?ediz. del 1815 con 50 tavv. Solo qualche lieviss. traccia d?uso altrimenti fresco esemplare, molto ben conservato e marginoso. Il viaggio pittorico o viaggio pittoresco è un tipo di pubblicazione che si sviluppa soprattutto nella prima metà dell?Ottocento e si colloca a metà strada tra la guida turistica e il libro d?arte. I volumi erano costituiti da un certo numero di tavole incise, accompagnate da un commento descrittivo più o meno ampio; le incisioni potevano essere colorate, su richiesta degli acquirenti dell?opera. Questa produzione si rivolgeva a un pubblico d?élite, costituito da nobili e intellettuali, lo stesso pubblico di cui facevano parte i viaggiatori dell?epoca. Il "Viaggio pittorico e storico ai tre laghi Maggiore, di Lugano, e Como", fa parte di una serie di raccolte di incisioni prodotte a Milano da due artisti tedeschi, Friedrich e Caroline Lose. L?opera ebbe diverse edizioni, di cui la prima citata nei repertori risale al 1815. Friedrich Lose nacque a Goerlitz, ai confini orientali della Germania, e studiò a Lipsia con Oeser; successivamente si recò a Parigi. Sua moglie Caroline Lose di Dresda, figlia del consigliere di Corte d?Appello von Schlieben, fu allieva di Moritz Retsch. Friedrich disegnava i suoi paesaggi ad acquerello, Caroline provvedeva a realizzare l?incisione in acquatinta e, in ultimo, seguiva direttamente il lavoro di coloritura delle tavole. In questo modo venne realizzato anche il "Viaggio pittorico nei monti della Brianza", edito dallo stesso Friedrich Lose. La coppia di artisti si era trasferita a Milano, al seguito del vicerè Eugenio Beauharnais, ma era poi rimasta nella città lombarda anche dopo la caduta del regime napoleonico. L?attività dei coniugi Lose, che avevano formato uno dei più interessanti sodalizi artistici nella Lombardia della Restaurazione, si esaurì dopo il 1824; entrambi morirono a Milano.

Abschrift eines Urkundenbuches, welches Rechtstitel, Verträge und Gesetzestexte betreffend die Herrschaft Rued als Vidimuskopien enthielt (d.h. Kopien mit Rechtskraft). Das ursprüngliche Urbar entstand 1616 auf Bitte des Herrn von Rued, dem Berner Stadtbürger Beat Ludwig May, und wurde anhand von Originaldokumenten und Einträgen in der Berner Kanzlei in Bern erstellt. Dies ist der Einleitung zu entnehmen. Die vorliegende Kopie wurde von Jakob Gehret, Notar von Sanen, im Jahre 1776 erstellt und signiert (Anlass für die Kopie könnte der Grossbrand des Schlosses Rued ein Jahr zuvor sein). Schloss und Herrschaft Rued gehörten bis ins 14. Jh. den Herren von Rued, wurden danach mehrfach verkauft (hier setzt in etwa das Urbar ein) und kamen ab dem frühen 16. Jh. zum Berner Geschlecht May. Bis zum Ende des Ancien Regime waren sie Teil des Berner Aargaus. Die kopierten Dokumente reichen von 1387 bis 1634 und wurden um 1851/52 noch um 2 Abschriften ergänzt: einem Kaufbrief von 1330 und einem Teilungsvergleich von 1806. Der Einband trägt wohl fälschlicherweise ein handgeschriebenes Titelschild, welches das Buch als Jahresrechnung eines Landschreibers für das Jahr 1788 präsentiert.Please notify before visiting to see a book.

Über KVK nur ein Exemplar nachweisbar (SB Berlin, Kriegsverlust; dort mit nur 12 Bll. im Anhang), für mich sonst bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar. - Pawel Petrowitsch (1754-1801), Sohn Katharina der Großen und nach ihrem Tod 1796 Zar Paul I., ging 1776 mit der Prinzessin Sophie Dorothee von Württemberg (1759-1828) seine zweite Ehe ein, genau sechs Monat nach dem Tod seiner ersten Ehefrau. Sophie schenkte ihrem Paul zehn Kinder, unter ihnen die späteren Zaren Alexander I. und Nikolaus I. - Paul I. Regentschaft war von außerordentlichen Reformen und für Russland freiheitlichen Ideen geprägt, die in den Kreisen des Adels keine positive Resonanz fanden - am 24. März 1801 wurde er bei einem Attentat von adligen Verschwörern stranguliert, nachdem er sich geweigert hatte, seine Abdankung zu unterschreiben. Die Initiative dazu, wenn auch nicht der Mord, soll mit dem stillen Einverständnis seines Sohnes Alexanders geschehen sein. - - - Die paginierten Seiten mit einer umfangreichen Beschreibung des Trosses des kaiserlichen Paares und der Feierlichkeiten in Stargard.

Howgego, I, C198. & ¶ First complete edition of Coryate's accounts of his travels in Europe, the Middle East, and South Asia, effectively an eighteenth-century reissue (originally printed in quarto, at London, in 1611, by William Stansby), augmented with numerous other works, including Coryate's letters from India and a large section of commendatory poems from 55 individual contributors—amounting to an original poetical miscellany of the great names of Jacobean English literature, including Ben Jonson, John Donne, Inigo Jones, John Hoskins and Dudley Digges. One of the greatest works of Elizabethan and Jacobean literature, as well as one of the earliest travelogues in English. According to Pforzheimer, There "probably has never been another such combination of learning and unconscious buffoonery as is here set forth. Coryate was a serious and pedantic traveller . . . His adventures probably appeared to his contemporaries as more ridiculous than exciting, but at this remove his chronicle by its very earnestness provides an account of the chief cities of early seventeenth century Europe which is at least as valuable as it is amusing." Traveling from Paris to Lyons, through Savoy to Turin, Milan, and Mantua, Coryate was carried over the Mont Cenis Pass in a chaise à porteurs; he left Venice by boat for Padua, then walked to Vicenza, Verona, and Bergamo; he arrived in Zürich by boat and reached Basel on foot. After arriving in Strasbourg, he got lost, alone and on foot, in the Black Forest; after being received in Heidelberg, he walked to Mainz. Following a detour to visit Frankfurt's fair, he sailed down the Rhine, with a brief stop at Cologne; thence from Middleburg back to London. Coryat's Crudities was intended to encourage courtiers and gallants to enrich themselves through travel to the Continent. It contains illustrations, historical data, architectural descriptions, details of local customs, information on prices, exchange rates, food and drink, and much more. His description of how Italians shielded themselves from the sun contains perhaps the first mention of "umbrella" in English literature. Table forks, almost unknown in England, were in general use in Italy; Coryate acquired one, imitated the Italian fashion of eating and continued to do so frequently when he came home. While in Switzerland, Coryate heard the story of William Tell, and his charming rendering of it appears to be the earliest in English. To solicit the extraordinary sheaf of testimonials prefixed to the volume, Coryate circulated copies of the title-page depicting his adventures and his portrait, engraved by William Hole. N. B.
