Pages de titres en rouge et noir. Exemplaire au chiffre DB coiffé d'une couronne comtale frappé à chaud sur les plats supérieurs. Reliures en plein veau marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés, roulettes en queue et tête. pièces de titres en maroquin rouge, et de tomaisons en maroquin noir. Tranches cailloutées bleues. Un manque le long du mors supérieur en queue du tome 1. Rousseurs éparses dans le tome 4. Frottements en coiffes, mors et coins, mais très bel ensemble, particulièrement frais. Ensemble du théâtre de Piron, des contes, et des pièces en vers et prose. L'auteur commença sa carrière par l'épigramme et les bons mots (talent que l'on retrouve dans les Contes), puis versa dans la comédie en travaillant pour l'opéra comique et le theâtre de la Foire. Ses tragédies, bien qu'elles tentent de renouveler un genre moribond à l'époque ne sont pas ses meilleure tentatives. Piron donna la pièce qui reste comme son chef-d'œuvre en 1738 : La métromanie, dont Grimm dit qu'elle resterait aussi longtemps qu'il y aura un théâtre et du goût en France.

In total 86 descriptive text pages, 73 beautifully engraved hand-coloured plates containing 409 figures of marble. Contemporary full mottled calf; spine with five raised bands, richly gilt ornamented compartments and one red morocco label with gilt title. All edges red.l Second edition of this magnificent and outstanding colour plate book, depicting an almost infinitely-varied series of marbles and allied ornamental stones from deposits in Germany and nearby countries, including Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy. Apparently each of the rectangular panels represents the appearance of a polished slab, with most plates depicting six such pieces, but others two, four, and as many as nine. While one is immediately captivated by the richness and depth of the watercolour painting, often heightened by the application of opaque white for veinlets, it can be seen that under each painting lies a complex, lightly-incised network of lines, almost like rouletting, over which the colours have been laid. Only a few copies of this second edition are known to possess a maximum of 98 plates, of which this copy has the vast majority. Only one copy with 98 plates has ever been auctioned, and one truly exceptional copy with 100 plates has recently been made known. Auction records from for the past 50 years are very scarce and demonstrate a large variety in the number of plates (i.e. 23, 30, 42, 68 and only one with 73, like ours). We believe this proves that the work was issued in parts by subscription, and accounts for all copies containing less than the maximum number of plates. The maximum number is listed in the British Museum Catalogue and in Brunet only. The few other copies recorded all lack 20 or more plates, usually towards the end of the book. This copy is remarkable for having a part of the Italian section, with six plates. The text appears in four modern languages in rectangular columns and the Latin text at the bottom. The Latin and German descriptive text is by Casimir Christoph Schmidel (1718-1792). Each section has its own title and preface; the accompanying text ends with plate 73. The next section "Florentinische Marmer" is only denoted by the caption of plate 74. Brunet IV may be in error listing text up to plate 75. Most plates, except a few, are tissue guarded. All pages clean and plates with colouring very fresh and vivid. A fine copy. Brunet IV, col. 1243; V, col. 1465 (with 98 plates). Cat BM(NH), pp. 1243, 2340 (with 98 plates); Landwehr, 1; Sinkankas, 7281 (with 54 plates). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Disegno della Prima Machina rappresentante Nobil'Edificio a diporto in Luogo di Delizia, incendiata per comando di Sua Eccellenza il Sig. Don Lorenzo Colonna

      1776 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1776. Da un soggetto di Giuseppe Palazzi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, minimi difetti, per il resto in buone condizioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo. Etching, printed on contemporary laid paper, small tear perfectly repaired, otherwise in good condition The engravings have been laid on canvas and framed; after a long work to repair them, they now look almost perfect. Signs of glue on verso, on recto signs of abrasions and oxidations. Chinea literally means white female mule, the one the Kings of Spain offered every year to the Pope as a solemn payment of the income of the Kingdome of Naples. The horse, duly trained, knelt in front of the Pope and to offer him a silver vase with money inside, that was fastened to its saddle. The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as per Charles II decree of the 12 of May 1691, the Greats of Spain were obliged to take part to the cortege, which was then followed by two series of pyrotechnical shots and music

Deluc et P. G. Dentard en 1776.Le savant genevois Jean André Deluc (ou: de Luc 1727-1817) a consacré beaucoup de temps à étudier les phénomènes atmosphériques, particulièrement à la détermination des hauteurs au moyen du baromètre. C'est dans ce but qu'il entreprit avec son frère l'ascension du Buet en 1770, considérée comme la première ascension en haute montagne dans les Alpes (Perret), répétée en 1776 avec leur ami le pasteur Dentand. Chercheur de renommée internationale, Deluc créa entre autres une nouvelle formule pour déterminer les hauteurs à l'aide du baromètre et développa un nouveau baromètre portable. Il est aussi connu pour avoir amélioré le thermomètre de Réaumur en remplaçant l'alcool par du mercure. Très bel exemplaire de cet ouvrage rare.Please notify before visiting to see a book.

        Observations on the Nature of Civil Liberty, The Principles of Government, and the Justice and Policy of the War with America. To Which is Added an Appendix, Containing, A State of the National Debt, an Estimate of Taxes; and an Account of the National Income and Expenditure Since the Last War

      New York: S. Loudon, 1776. Ex-library, first American edition. Hardcover. vg. Small octavo. 107pp. Red cloth library binding, with a red and white label pasted on the front cover. This is a first American edition of Richard Price's treatise on civil liberty and his stance supporting, and giving validity to the American revolution. The book discusses the nature of civil liberties and then applies the discussion to the examination of whether or not the British government (and Monarchy) has violated those liberties. He concludes that it has; "... it is what we have done to them - We have transported ourselves to their peaceful retreats, and employed our fleets and armies to stop up their ports, to destroy their commerce, to seize their effects and to burn their towns. Would but we let them alone, and suffer them to enjoy in security, their property, and governments, instead of disturbing us, they would thank and bless us." The back of the book contains the author's tables and calculations regarding the finances of Great Britain, examining taxes, surplus and expenditures of the recent period. Thus he provides a financial argument against the war and its related expenditures. This important work brought Price to the forefront of the British intellectuals in support of the Americans during the war. Binding with minor rubbing to extremities, and light pencil markings on the white label. Interior with previous owner's bookplate at interior front cover. Title page has been repaired with tissue paper, and still has a few small closed tears and a library blind-stamp. Binding and interior in overall very good condition. Scarce American edition. Richard Price (23 February 1723 - 19 April 1791) was a Welsh moral philosopher, preacher and mathematician. He was a nonconformist, meaning that he was a Protestant Christian who did not "conform" to the governance and usages of the established Church of England. He was also a political pamphleteer, active in radical, republican, and liberal causes such as the American Revolution. He was well-connected and fostered communication between a large number of people, including several of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Price spent most of his adult life as minister of Newington Green Unitarian Church, on the outskirts of London. He also wrote on issues of demography and finance, and was a Fellow of the Royal Society.*There were four separate American printings of the title in 1776, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Charleston the same year of publication as the British edition. The primacy of these editions has not been established. The Boston and Philadelphia editions each have 71pp., Charleston edition has 104pp. Evans #15033.

        Veduta del Pazazzo Stopani

      Roma 1776 - - PRIMO STATO DI TRE - Acquaforte e bulino, 1776, firmata in lastra . Esemplare della contemporanea tiratura romana. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio con letter CB", con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Della serie Vedute di Roma. L’opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All’opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall’editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell’autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. - THE FIRST STATE OF THREE - Etching with engraving, 1776, signed on plate. From the contemporary Roman Edition. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "double encircled fleur de lys with letters CB", with margins, very good condition. Taken from Vedute di Roma; the whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building. Hind 128, I/III; Focillon 842; Wilton Ely 261.

      Title, engraved frontis, ii + [4] + 11 + [1]pp and 48 engraved plates (1 double page). Large folio.. Title page, engraved dedication and text in English and French. Richardson states in the preface dated 1774 that he had been employed under "Messrs. Adam of the Adelphi... in drawing and designing upwards of eighteen years' and his ceiling designs are in the Adam Manner; one, iinded is for Lord Scarsdale's house at Kedleston which the Adam Brothers were largely responsible for." Dedication leaf to Lord Scarsdale at Kedleston. List of subscribers included amongst others, Joseph Banks, William Chambers, John Carr of York, George Dance, Joseph Pickford at Derby, Thomas Sandby and many house owners including the Marquis of Rockingham and Scottish house owners with whom he may have been associated when working with Adam. Lovely copy. Quarter calf, marbled boards rebacked with new gilt lettering and raised bands on spine and new corners. Small repair patch on title page.

      London printed, Boston, re-printed: T. & J. Fleet, 1776. 71pp. Half calf and marbled boards. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Titlepage moderately toned, some light scattered foxing to text. Very good. Price was a well-known British Presbyterian minister and the author of several notable books about moral philosophy and economics. He was particularly friendly with a number of Americans, and vigorously argued their part in the British debate over colonial taxation and government. This is one of the most influential political pamphlets written by an Englishman who sympathized with the American colonies. "It is said that the encouragement derived from this book had no inconsiderable share in determining the Americans to declare their independence" - DNB.Price was later offered honorary American citizenship by the Continental Congress, which he declined. This work first appeared in February 1776 in London and went through numerous editions. The American editions are quite rare. HOWES P586. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 224w.

L’opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All’opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall’editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell’autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. - THE FIRST STATE OF THREE - Etching with engraving, 1754, signed on plate at lower right. From the contemporary Roman Edition. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "double encircled fleur de lys with letters CB", with margins, very good condition. Taken from Vedute di Roma; the whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building. Hind 124 I/III Dimensioni 700 490mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]
