        Interiour view of the crater of Mount Vesuvius as it was before the great eruption of 1767. (tav. IX).

      Incisione in rame, foglio: mm. 330x460, battuta: mm. 215x395. Acquerellata d'epoca. Ottime condizioni.Tratta da: HAMILTON WILLIAM. Napoli, Pietro Fabris, 1776-1779.Campi phlegraei. Observations on the volcanos of the two Sicilies? Supplement to the Campi Phlegraei being an account to the grat eruption of the mount Vesuvius in the month of August 1779? L'opera costituisce un caso unico nella storia del libro illustrato settecentesco, in quanto riunisce un testo di grande interesse scientifico a una serie di 54 tavole di grande valore artistico disegnate dal vero, eseguite all'acquaforte su lastra di rame e dipinte all'acquerello dal grande vedutista Pietro Fabris (attivo tra 1763 e 1779). Il trattato, fu pubblicato nel 1776 con testo francese e inglese e fu indirizzato alla Royal Society di Londra. L'autore, Sir William Hamilton (1730-1803), fu a Napoli tra il 1764 e il 1800 come ambasciatore d'Inghilterra; durante tale permanenza poté raccogliere molto materiale relativo alla vulcanologia, in particolar modo riguardante il Vesuvio e i Campi Flegrei, ma anche riguardanti l'Etna e altre località siciliane. Di Fabris invece non si sa molto, ma, di certo, con le tavole dei Campi Phlegarei si pose a modello per le vedute al guazzo di tutti i maestri napoletani successivi, da Alessandro D'Anna a Saverio Della Gatta. Le incisioni acquerellate del Fabris, in accordo con il gusto dell'epoca per l'alternanza di idillico e sublime, presentano scenari ameni e terribili eruzioni vulcaniche, ma anche campioni di minerali prelevati nelle varie località descritte da Hamilton, i quali vengono illustrati in maniera assolutamente realistica, pur mantendo sempre un alta qualità artistica.

        Royaume de Danemarck qui comprend le Nort-Jutland ?le Sud-Jutland? et le Isles de Fionie, Sélande, Laland, & c. Venezia: Francesco Santini, a Santa Giustina, 1776

      VENEZIA: FRANCESCO SANTINI, A SANTA GIUSTINA, 1776 1776 Incisione su rame all'acquaforte e bulino in due fogli incollati di mm 575 x 486. Bella vergata veneziana. Filigrana trelune. Foglio a larghi margini. Una gora leggera nella parte centrale. Titolo entro ricco cartiglio in alto a destra. Toponimi e descrizioni geografiche nella mappa. Proveniente da: "Atlas universel dressé sur les meilleures cartes modernes", Venezia 1776. Gli Atlanti stampati da Francesco Santini, che, come indicato spesso nelle carte, teneva bottega a Santa Giustina, nel Sestiere di Castello, riutilizzano le lastre incise da Lattrè e disegnate da Janvier per l' "Atlas Moderne" stampato a Parigi nel 1771. L'Atlante di Janvier ebbe un immediato apprezzamento, sia per la precisione geografica, che per i ricchi cartigli molto decorativi. Robert (Jean) Janvier: working in Paris in the second half of the eighteenth century, Jean Janvier (1746 ? 1776) produced a series of maps in the later half of the century. While there is some confusion about his Christian name, his maps usually were inscribed ?Le Sieur Janvier?. He is best known for his collaboration with engraver Jean Lattre for an Atlas Moderne first released in 1762 and in several later editions some by C. F. Delamarche and by Chez Remondini. He also produced several maps used in general atlases by William Fadan and P. Santini.

Amsterdam: Chez Marc-Michel Rey, 1776. 12mo. [ii], 260 pp. 12mo (6-1/2" x 4"). Contemporary mottled sheep, gilt spine, marbled endpapers. Light rubbing to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities. Some toning to text, internally clean. A nice copy. * First edition. (Also issued the same year in Geneva.) This book concerns the sanctioning of Linguet's disbarment by the Order of Barristers by the Parlement. The complicated circumstances had to do with competition within the Order of Barristers and tensions between the Order and the Parlement. Linguet, admitted to the bar in 1764, was a formidable advocate. The immediate cause of his disbarment was "a tirade in which the author seems to have lost his temper and denounced the Order. This convoluted affair is described in Michael P. Fitzsimmons, The Parisian Order of Barristers and the French Revolution, 24ff. OCLC locates 4 copies in North America, 1 in a law library (UC-Berkeley). Another copy located at George Washington University Law School. Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        Anthologia Meriana CXV. continens plantarum, florum maxime, egregie sculptas tabulas, addito indice, in quo tum antiquiora illarum, tum etiam Linnaeana occurrunt nomina. Editio nova.

      Francofurti et Lipsaie, apud Joann. Georg. Fleischer, 1776. Folio (353 x 227mm). pp. 6, with 115 (4 folded) engraved plates. Contemporary vellum, spine with gilt lettering. A well preserved and spotless copy of one of the most beautiful German florilegia illustrating numerous exotic and unusual plants. It is the last edition of de Bry's famous florilegium. The first edition appeared 1612-14 with 87 plates. The florilegium was very popular and considerably expanded in later editions. Johann Theodor de Bry belonged to a noted family of engravers from Frankfurt. "In 1641, twenty-one years after the death of Johann Theodor de Bry, Matthaeus Merian the elder published an amplified version of the 'opus magnus' of his father-in-law 'Florelegium novum', entitling it 'Florilegium renovatum'. Merian was born in Basel in 1593... he settled in Frankfurt, where he married de Bry's daughter. A versatile artist, Merian not only continued the work of his father-in-law as an engraver, he also painted landscapes, portraits and historical scenes. His children, Matthaeus the younger and Maria Sibylla, followed in his footsteps: both became artists." (Tomasi, An Oak Spring Flora p. 74). This last edition has 115 plates portraying the most beautiful plants of the 'Florilegium Renovatum et Auctum' published in 1641 (-1647). Nissen BBI, 276.

        Catalogus bibliothecæ templi cathedralis Strengnesensis.

      Strängnäs, L. A. Collin, 1776. 4:o. 63 s. Elegant halvpergamentbd med röd titeletikett av skinn och rödstänkt övre snitt, övriga snitt oskurna (Hedberg, 1954). Titelbladet har en gammal lagning i nedre yttre hörnet. Avslutas med ett inbundet grått blad med anteckningar av C. M. Carlander. Fint ex. med Gustaf Bernströms exlibris.. Almquist Sveriges bibliografiska litteratur 3138, som anger F. V. Brannius som katalogens upphovsman. Denne var förvisso bibliotekarie vid Strängnäs domkyrkobibliotek, men föddes inte förrän 1780. En annan uppgift har gjort gällande att det var hans far Johan Wilhelm Brannius, kanslist i Riksarkivet, som sammanställde katalogen, men av allt att döma rör det sig istället om Carl Gustaf Barkman (1725-99). Han är känd för sin latinska grammatik som utkom i flera upplagor. Katalogen förtecknar den krigsbytesrika boksamling som än idag står i domkyrkan i Strängnäs och nästan uteslutande består av böcker tryckta på 1400- och 1500-talen samt de första årtiondena av 1600-talet. På sidorna 57-63 förtecknas biskop Johannes Matthiæs donation. Carlanders medbundna anteckningsblad är ett utdrag ur "Lärda tidningar" 1750 om biblioteket

        Tankar om verldenes, i synnerhet jordenes, danande och ändring.

      Sthlm, H. Fougt, 1776. 8:o. (6),183,(1 blank,4) s. & 1 utvikbar grav. plansch. Samtida trevligt hfrbd med upphöjda bind och benvit titeletikett. Binden enkelt markerade i guld. Stänkta snitt. Mindre mörk fläck i högra kanten av nedersta ryggfältet. Spridda småfläckar. Charmigt ex. tryckt på ljusblått papper.. I detta berömda men även för sin tid omoderna geologiska arbete försökte Wallerius med hjälp av de nya vetenskaperna att förklara världens uppkomst utifrån gamla testamentet. Wallerius argumenterar för att världen skapats ur vatten och ljus (motsvarande första Moseboks himmel och jord) och åberopar bl.a. en mängd tänkare ur den mystiska traditionen. Frängsmyr ser arbetet som "ett levande exempel på den underströmning av mystik som kännetecknar det förnuftsinriktade 1700-talet." Boken blev också uppskattad i sin samtid och översattes till bl.a. tyska, franska och italienska. En latinsk utgåva utkom 1779

        Le costume ou essai sur les habillements et les usages de plusieurs peuples de l'antiquité, prouvé par les monuments

      Aux depens de l'auteur chez J.F. Bassompierre Liege: Aux dépens de l'auteur, chez J.F. Bassompierre, 1776. Contemporary calf, rebacked in complementary style, spine with gilt-stamped leather title and author labels and gilt-stamped compartment decorations; original leather acid-pitted and cracked over edges and extremities. Front pastedown with small bookseller's ticket from Albany, NY; free endpapers with a few stray pencilled notations. Dedication page with institutional rubber-stamp in lower margin.. 4to (24.9 cm, 9.8"). xxxi, [1], 411, [1] pp.; 51 plts. First edition: Treatise on ancient dress among the Egyptians, Greeks, Persians, Jews, Romans, and other people. The author, a Flemish artist also known as Andries Cornelis Lens, came to the study of antiquarian clothing by way of his classically inspired focus in painting. Illustrated with 51 copper-engraved plates done by Pitre Martenasie, this is an "Ouvrage estimé" according to Brunet (who seemingly mistakenly cites 57 engravings as opposed to the 51 given by von Lipperheide, described in institutional holdings, and present here).

        A General Map of the Middle British Colonies

      London, 1776. No Binding. Very Good. 19 x 26 inches. Original outline color; reinforced fold separation & wear, slight losses due to abrasion, mended split into surface; nice, dark printing impression; overall very good, especially for a map originally issued folded. A scarce, handsomely engraved edition of the great Evans map intended for use by British officers serving in the American Revolution. This edition appeared as both a separate and in a work called the American Military Pocket Atlas, styled the "Holster Atlas," as it was intended to provide a geographic overview for British officers being shipped off to battle the rebellious colonists. This was a new state, second issue, of the often-used Kitchin-Jefferys-Sayer plate but with significant changes (".so strangely altered as to be almost unrecognizable,"). An important improvement in this state was the expansion of the inset at upper left to contain all of the Great Lakes not already shown on the map proper. The shapes of Lake Ontario and Erie have also been updated, and the map was expanded to include some of Canada north of the lakes. Many of the other changes, especially in the Ohio area, reintroduced Evans' original delineations that were distorted in the earlier states of the present plate. Forts are shown in abundance in New York, especially in the Lake Champlain region, and in Pennsylvania. Roads and trails are also shown throughout.Stevens Map XV, see also XIV.

Vom Hannoveraner Chemiker und Apotheker Andreae (1724 - 1793) zwischen dem 14 August und 20 Oktober 1763 verfasste, meist naturwissenschaftliche Betrachtungen, seiner Schweizer Reise. Sehr vermehrte Neuausgabe in Zusammenarbeit mit Jakob Samuel Wyttenbach "ungemein lebhaft und feurig geschrieben, doch gründlich und kritisch verfasset" (Haller). Wesentlich teile des Werkes sind den Paläontologischen Funden, der Geologie und der Mineralogie gewidmet. Untersucht kritisch die schweizerischen Heilquellen, beschreibt die Naturaliensammlungen der Schweiz. Ein ganzes Kapital ist der Rheinbrücke in Schaffhausen gewidmet mit einem grossen Bauplan von Holzhalb. Andreae versucht seinen Lesern das Schweizerdeutsch zu erklären, was bei Haller nicht auf grosse Begeisterung stösst. Von Füessli grosszügig und schön gedruckt, hier in einem luxeriösen Einband des 20. Jahrhunderts im Stil der Zeit. Wenige Bogen gebräunt, sonst aber fleckenlos. Einige Tafeln mit Quetschfalten.

Schleswig-Hollsteinischen Geheimen-Raths und Oberhof-Marschalls Georg Heinrichs, Freyherrn von Schliß, genannt von Goerz, aus des Königs Carl des XII. des Schwedischen Senats, der Schwedischen Herrn und Männer, Original- und anderen Urkunden, erwiesen. Mit XXX Beylagen. (Hamburg), 1776. 8:o VIII,+ 542 s. Genomgående något lager- och småfläckig. Med bläckanteckningar på för- och eftersättsbladen, troligen av Gustaf d'Albedyhll. Nära samtida hfrbd, guldornerad rygg med röd titeletikett och upphöjda bind samt röda snitt. Liten skada på övre kapitäl. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris klistrat ovanpå ett äldre, troligen d'Albedyhlls. Setterwall 4709. Warmholtz 5983a. Första upplagan. En ny och utökad upplaga utkom 1782. Warmholtz anser boken både illa skriven och vårdslöst tryckt, men medger ändå att den "... gifver mycket ljus i Nordiska Historien, ifrån 1715-1718." Moser hävdar i detta verk att beskyllningarna mot Goertz var ogrundade och att ett justitiemord begicks när han avrättades. Carl Friedrich von Moser (1723-98) var politiker och historiker i Hessen-Darmstadt, där han avancerade till förste minister

        Observations on the Nature of Civil Liberty, the Principales of Government, and the Justice and Policy of the War with America. To Which are Added, an Appendix and Postcript, Containing a State of the National Debtâ?¦

      T. Cadell Pamphlet, 8vo, stitched, uncut, 132 pp. Some small tears and chips at extremities, some soiling to title and final pages, normal aging and browning. Price (1723-1791) was a prominent philosopher and poltical radical. He was also a clergyman, and continued to preach until his death in 1791. Around 1758, he started to publish his political and moral views, and in 1776, wrote this pro American tract that defended American patriots. His pro American views even got him an invitation from Benjamin Franklin in 1778 to come to America to advise on financial matters.This was a very important work in its time, and was published in a number of editions, including editions in Philadelphia, New York and Boston.

        A Map of the Middle British Colonies In North America...March 25th, 1776

      London, 1776. No Binding. Near Fine. 19 1/8 x 32 inches.. Original outline color; minor marginal mends not affecting image; else excellent. Rare. This is by far the most important edition of the pioneering Evans map outside of the original one, which was called by Schwartz "the most ambitious performance of its kind undertaken in America up to that time." Of the numerous later editions of map, Pownall's was the only one to utilize the original plate and to have been authorized by Evans himself. In the upper left corner is a commendation of the map with Evans' engraved signature. Pownall's map is in fact a novel hybrid, consisting of Evans' original plate with a new plate for part of the Northeast appended to it. Pownall also significantly updated the original plate: "The whole of the map east of the longitude of Philadelphia is greatly changed, and is filled in with new details" (Stevens). Pownall, who had been governor of Massachusetts, stated that the New England section of the map was based on new information, "later Draughts and Surveys deposited at the Board of Trade" (Pownall's Topographical Description, in which the map was originally published). Sadly, Evans saw little profit from his groundbreaking map, in large part due to the numerous pirated editions of it by Jefferys, Sayer, Kitchen, Bowles and others. So moved was Pownall by the plight of the wronged and indigent Evans, who received no funds from the sale of the numerous piracies of his map, that he pledged all profits from his edition of the map to Evans' daughter.Stevens, H. Lewis Evans His Map, pp.17-28; Schwartz/Ehrenberg, p.1

        Boråsiade, poeme i fyra sånger.

      Sthlm, H. Fougt, 1776. 4:o. (4),35 s. Prydligt lackat och marmorerat hfrbd med rikt guldornerad rygg, mörkgrön titeletikett och rödstänkta snitt (Hedberg). Skinnet på rygg och ytterfalsar ngt nött. Inlagan delvis tryckt på blåtonat papper. Enstaka lager- och småfläckar. En fuktfläck upptill i yttermarginalen på s. 31-32. Med Abr. Dahlgrens överstrukna namnteckning och Sten och Brita Westerbergs exlibris. Från Beatelund.. Bibliotheca Rudbeckiana 1512. Nya upplagor utkom 1783, 1820, 1833-34 etc. Dikten, som även översattes till danska, är ett komiskt epos som inspirerats av Hofmanska upproret i Västergötland 1766 och boråsarnas försvar mot Hofmans bondehär. Schück skriver i sin litteraturhistoria att "det, som särskilt tyckes hava roat Rudbeck, var det martialiska lynnet hos boråsarna" och menar att poemet "onekligen är en bland de bäst lyckade dikter, som finnas från denna tid." Olof Rudbeck den yngste (1750-77) var kanslist i Riksarkivet och sonsons son till "Atlanticans" författare. Han författade "Boråsiaden" som sjuttonåring, men omarbetade den av politiska skäl före utgivningen 1776

        De anima brutorum commentaria

      Firenze, Cajetan Cambiagi 1776.. 256 p., each in a decorative frame, 7 fine decorative initials with landscape backgrounds printed in sepia, engraved title with frame of birds' heads printed in blue and sepia, 8 engraved plates printed in blue, an uncut copy (214 x 140 mm), in an unusual and attractive binding of Italian paste-paper boards with a floral design, morocco label. Only edition, a handsome copy of an interesting book. Soldini, who is prepared to find qualities of intellect and character in the lowliest crustaceans, has seemed to readers to anticipate various intellectual currents of later times: vegetarianism, evolution, Gaia. Others are attracted to the very curious plates; the unusual colour printing adds to the charm. The three copies of which I have a detailed description (BL does not have it) differ slightly both in the order of the plates and in which parts are printed in blue, which in sepia. Ours has (logically, as it seems to me) a plate of an almost human ape among animals as frontispiece; the preface has a plate of animals and birds; chap.I prehistoric beasts; chaps.II and IV shellfish invading the land; chap.III animals and birds, incl. a dragon; chap.V animals and insects; chap.VI sea-creatures. vf21
