PRIESTLEY, Joseph / GIBELIN, Jacques (trad.)
A Berlin, et se trouve à Paris : chez Saillant & Nyon, 1777-1780. Ouvrage complet en 5 t. reliés 5 vol in-12: 11 x 17 cm. I/ xxxvi-434-[2] pp., 2 pl. grav. dép.; II/ 2 ff., lxii-297 pp., 1 pl. grav. dép.; III/ 2 ff., iv-352 pp., 2 ff., 5 pl. grav. dép.; IV/ lii-404 pp., 2 pl. grav. dép.; V/ 2 ff., 404 pp., 1 pl. grav. dép. Édition française en partie originale de la traduction de l'ouvrage du savant britannique Joseph Priestley (1732-1804) "Experiments and observations on different kinds of air" paru à Londres dès 1772. Le 1er vol. est la réimpression de l'édition de 1775 dont la page de titre de 1775 est conservée en tête de ce volume de 1777, les tomes 2 à 5 sont en édition originale. Ouvrages illustrés d'un total de 11 pl. grav. dépliantes réparties dans les 5 vol. Reliures de l'époque en veau moucheté, dos à nerfs avec pièces de titre en maroquin rouge et pièces de tomaison en maroquin vert, à l'exception de celle du premier volume qui est jaune, plats encadrés d'un filet à froid, coupes ornées d'un filet doré, tranches rouges et gardes recouvertes de papier marbré. Très bel ensemble, propre et élégant. Joseph Priestley semble être le premier à découvrir une nouvelle substance gazeuse: l'air dephlogisticaté qui n'est autre que l'oxygène (O2). Comme il conduit les expériences qui l'amènent à cette "découverte" entre 1774 et 1776; il est difficile d'établir avec certitude qui, entre Lavoisier, Scheele et Priestley, est le premier a avoir identifié le célèbre gaz.

GIN, P.L.C.)
A Genève, 1777. (4), (2, Avis au Lecteur, blank), vii, (1, blank), 316, (4, errata) pp. 8vo. Contemporary marbled calf, spine richly gilt in compartments, label with gilt lettering, marbled edges. INED 2037 (later edition); not in Kress; not in Goldsmiths; not in Einaudi; not in Mattioli; Mornet, Les origines intellectuelles de la Révolution, pp. 217-8. Rare first edition of this work which is primarily a defence of monarchic government against the theories of Montesquieu and Mably, notable for a variety of observations on economic issues. Gin identifies the products of agriculture and manufacture as the basic forms of wealth, and condemns import on the grounds that they lead to a diminution in the population. 'Il y défend les lois fondamentales de la monarchie pure, réfute la théorie de la liberté politique ou de constitution de Montesquieu, celle de l'équilibre des pouvoirs et refuse de donner des limites à la puissance du monarque' (Mornet). 'Sociologie politique. De la monarchie, en général, et du gouvernement français en particulier. Plusieurs passages consacrés à des questions économiques. Réflexions sur les impôts et sur les richesses en général' (INED). - Some annotations concerning author and book on verso front free blank. A very nice copy with good margins, and an interesting copy: after the title-page there is a "Avis au Lecteur", reading: "Ce livre n'ayant pas ete imprime sous les yeux de l'Auteur, il s'y est glissé plusieurs fautes typographiques. On a corrigé les plus importantes dans l'Errata qui est à la fin de cet Ouvrage." Both this "avis" and the errata … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cat. Einaudi n. 3997. - In ICCU sono censite due tirature di questa edizione originale che si differenziano per l'accuratezza della numerazione delle pagine; anche sul mercato antiquario si rintracciano due diverse descrizioni bibliografiche di quest'opera sia per il numero di pagine che per il nome dell'incisore. Prima edizione del commento del Genovesi, stampata da Terres a otto anni dalla morte dell'autore. Una traduzione dello Spirito delle leggi era uscita parzialmente ad opera di Mecatti nel 1750, ma l'operazione era stata interrotta dalla censura. Terres, che possedeva il manoscritto del Genovesi, nel 1777 riuscì ad ottenere il permesso di stampa dell'opera commentata, con l'aggiunta di operette ad essa relative quali l'elogio di D'Alembert ad opera di Montesquieu, la Difesa dello Spirito delle leggi di J. Fontane de la Roche, il Ringraziamento sincero attribuito a Voltaire etc.

Dublin: James Williams, 1777. First Edition.. full 18th cent. calf; rebacked.. A very good copy; some occ. dustiness.. 12mo. Engraved title page. [6], (1)2 - 244 pp. An unusual descriptive low life ramble set out in a series of numbered descriptions and vignettes of life (characters appear in some of the vignettes). There is hardly a topic the author does not consider and ridicule. At times this appears a jest book. There is no London edition (as the Dublin imprint may lead one to suspect) and the ESTC and NUC cite only this printing. The book is well done and quite funny in parts. Greenough p. 224.

CARBURI DE CEFFALONIE (Marin)
1777. In-folio, dem. veau de l'époque. Cet ouvrage décrit l'invention d un traîneau métallique glissant sur des rails mobiles "posé sur des roulements à billes" Cette surprenante invention technologique fut utilisée pour le transport, sur 6 kilomètres, d'un rocher d'une taille colossale et d'un poids de 600 tonnes entre le Golfe de Finlande et Saint-Pétersbourg. Ce bloc rocheux servit de base à la statue équestre de Pierre-le-Grand de Falconet commandé par Catherine de Russie. Carburi de Caffalonie, ingénieur d'origine grec qui s'installa en Russie durant la seconde moitié du XVIIe siècle, fut à l'origine de l'élaboration et de la réalisation technique des petites sphères roulantes positionnées sous des rails qui permirent de déplacer une aussi volumineuse. 12 grandes planches, executées par Sellier, nous montrent les différentes étapes du déplacement du rocher. Bel exemplaire grand de marges et très frais. Français

Altenburg, Richter 1777. 1 Bl., VIII, 572 S. 8°. Heller Pp. d. Zt. mit rotem Schnitt. - Atabey Blackmer 770. - Dinse 432 u. 439. - Erste dt. Ausgabe. - Giovanni Mariti (1736-1808) verbrachte viele Jahre auf der Insel Zypern, lebte in Larnaca und wurde zum Vizekonsul ernannt. Er reiste dann nach Syrien, Palästina und Ägypten. Zurück in Italien im Jahre 1768 schrieb er seine Erlebnisse detailgetreu auf. Sorgfältig und ausführlich beschreibt er hier Geographie, Geschichte, Verwaltung und die Gewohnheiten der verschiedenen Nationen, die er besuchte. Die Originalausgabe "Viaggi per l'isola de Cipro et per la Soria e la Palestina" (Florenz 1769-76) erschien weitaus umfangreicher in 9 Teilen (siehe Brunet III, 1435). - Zur deutschen Ausgabe schreibt die "Auserlesene Bibliothek der neuesten deutschen Litteratur". 1778, Bd. 14, S. 562ff: "Die bisher erschienene 5 Octavbände hat Hr. Hase in anderthalb Alphabete herabgeschmolzen, indem er alle die unnütze antiquarische Gelehrsamkeit nicht mit übersetzt hat". - Mariti "had read Bordone, Lusignan and probably Meursius, but he relies almost entirely on his own notes of what he had seen and heard. And herein lies its value, for he is observant and conscientious. The book stands as the best account of the condition of Cyprus in the third quarter of the last century" (aus dem Vorwort des Übersetzers Claude Delaval Cobham zur ebenso stark gekürzten engl. Ausgabe 'Travels in the island of Cyprus', Cambridge 1909). - Die kolor. Tafel zeigt eine Purpurschnecke. - Einband nur etwas berieben.

FERRARIS (Comte de).
1777 1 vol. broché 25 planches cartographiques entoilées (15 de 93 x 58 cm, 5 de 62 x 58 cm et 5 de 46,5 x 58 cm) composant une très grande carte de 387,5 x 290 cm en 250 panneaux de 15,5 x 29 cm repliés, sous emboîtage d'époque, avec filet de fleurons dorés. Réalisée sur ordre de l'empereur Joseph II et de l'impératrice Marie-Thérèse d'Autriche sous la direction du comte Joseph de Ferraris (1726-1814), lieutenant-général et directeur de l'école de mathématiques du corps d'artillerie des Pays-Bas, cette carte est la première représentation des Pays-Bas autrichiens à cette échelle (1:86400). Incluant les principautés de Liège et de Stavelot, elle constitue une extension de la célèbre carte de France de Cassini. Une légende, trois échelles, un tableau d'assemblage, une carte générale et un plan topographique de la ville de Bruxelles la complètent. Précieux exemplaire, rare en premier tirage, les généraux de l'armée française ayant fait publier, à la seconde invasion de 1794, l'ordre de leur rapporter toutes ces cartes sous peine de mort (Van Hulthem, 'Bibliotheca Hulthemiana', vol.

An enlarged edition of what was the standard work on chess for more than a century by Philidor (1726-1795), the best chess player of his era, as well as a reputable composer. The first edition was published in 1749. "Philidor expanded his Analyse du jeu des échecs twice, doubling the original size of the book in 1777 and then redoubling it to two volumes in 1790 ... The list of subscribers to the 1777 edition resembled the membership list of the London chess club in its social mix, although it contained French names as well as English. Among intellectuals, Diderot, Voltaire, Marmontetl, and Gibbon subscribed for copies. The first expansion consisted mostly of endgame analyses. With these he took another long stride ahead of his predecessors ...." (Metzner, Crescendo of the Virtuoso, p. 29). Contemporary calf, spine gilt, morocco spine label, marbled edges and endpapers.

Boasso collaborò con lo Stagnon per la riedizione della carta degli Stati Sabaudi di Borgonio, che verrà stampata e diffusa nel 1772; lavorò, inoltre, alla redazione della carta del Piacentino, incisa poi dallo Stagnon. La mappa documenta una delle prime attestazioni del nome Pan di Zucchero per il faraglione prospiciente la costa di Iglesias, e venne pubblicata nel Calendario generale del Regno di Sardegna, edito a Cagliari nel 1777.

Frederick II, the Great, King of Prussia (1712-1786).
1777. Mostly 4to. 3½ pp. on 8 ff. Folded. Highly interesting collection of personal letters from the last years of the King's life. In French, to Eléonore de Maupertuis, lady-in-waiting to Princess Anna Amalia of Prussia, Frederick's youngest sister. Eléonore was the daughter of the well-esteemed Prussian diplomat, scholar, and translator Kaspar Wilhelm von Borck(e). In 1744 she had married the French mathematician and astronomer Pierre-Louis Moreau de Maupertuis, also a close confidant of Frederick's and head of the Prussian Academy of Science. After her husband's death in 1759 she concentrated on her office in the household of the Princess. - Since 1756 Anna Amalia of Prussia was titular Abbess of the Quedlinburg Convent but spent most of her time in Berlin. She is mainly remembered for her alleged affair with the Prussian officer and adventurer Friedrich von der Trenck. While the historicity of this anecdote is questionable, she was undoubtedly - and more importantly - one of the 18th century's few female composers of note. Her music collection ("Amalienbibliothek") contains many important prints and manuscripts, including the autograph of Johann Sebastian Bach's Brandenburg Concerts. She spent her last years in seclusion at Berlin, always remaining in close contact with her brother, who visited her regularly. She survived Frederick's death on 17 August 1786 by just a few months, passing away on 30 March 1787 (cf. MGG I, 486f. and T. Debuch, Anna Amalia von Preußen, Berlin 2001). - There are but few sources for the life of Anna Amalia, many of which are dubious (such as … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAVALLO Tiberius
London, Edward and Charles Dilly, 1777. In-8° (22 x 14), pp. XVI+VIII+412+(4), con 3 tavv. in rame ripiegate al termine. Cartonatura editoriale alla bodoniana, dorso rimesso. Buon es. a pieni margini. (8484) Prima edizione di questo importante trattato sui fenomeni elettrici del fisico napoletano Tiberio Cavallo (1749-1809), emigrato a Londra nel 1771 per farvi pratica in campo bancario e mercantile e poi interamente dedicatosi agli studi di fisica sperimentale, dall'elettricismo all'aerostatica. Questa è la sua prima opera scientifica impegnativa, e si propone di dare una trattazione sistematica della materia con particolare attenzione alla sperimentazione pratica. L'opera è divisa in quattro parti, e nell'ultima "sono descritti un perfezionato elettroscopio a repulsione e una bottiglia di Leida di piccole dimensioni, che fu apprezzata anche dal Volta con cui il C. entrò in corrispondenza". (D.B.I., XXII/p. 793). Importante la descrizione dell'elettrometro inventato dall'autore: "A friend of Volta named Tiberius Cavallo... invented an improved electrometer in 1777: So effective was it that it became the universal measuring instrument for electrical charges for more than a century... It was the same electrometer that Alessandro Volta later improved upon and which earned him even greater recognition than did an earlier invention, his electrophorus" (Dibner, A. Volta end the electric battery, pp. 20-1). Wheeler Gift, n. 463: "Original work on electricity". Mottelay, p. 244.

London: William Faden, 1777. Double-page engraved map and battle plan, period hand colouring. Sheet size: 30 x 21 inches. Rare Revolutionary war plan of the Battle of White Plains. The most accurate published delineation of the movements of the armies of Washington and Howe in Westchester published by Faden in February 1777 from drawings made by the British engineer Claude Joseph Sauthier who accompanied Howe on the October and November campaign. "Shows in detail movements and encampments of the British and American units from the north shore of Long Island north to the Croton River, south to Fort Washington on upper Manhattan, and west to Fort Lee New Jersey ... Many engraved notations describe maneuveurs and engagements" (Nebenzahl). Following the Battle of Long Island (August 1776), Washington retreated with the American forces into Manhattan and further north to White Plains. Howe pursued Washington, and this map shows the various landing places and camps of British and Hessian troops at Myers Point in Pelham, New Rochelle and Mamaroneck as well as the location of five war ships blocking the entrance to the Croton River. The map focusses largely on the 28 October Battle of White Plains and the subsequent retreat of the Americans to North Castle. On the west side of the Hudson, the map also shows the location of Cornwallis' camp after the taking of Fort Lee as late as November 18th.

NEWTON, Isaac
London: Printed for W. Strahan; and T. Cadell;, 1777. Translated into English and illustrated with a commentary, by Robert Thorp. Volume the first. Quarto (266 x 217 mm). Contemporary speckled half calf, red morocco label to spine, alternating Greek-key roll and floral scrollwork tooled in gilt to spine with circular floral motifs between, marbled paper boards, blue sprinkled edges. 22 engraved folding plates. Pencilled gift inscription to front free endpaper, "For R[everen]d Tylden Esq. W. Bland [presents?] compts"; the Tylden and Bland families were connected through various marriages and were both settled in the parish of Hartlip, Kent during the 18th and 19th centuries. Spine ends and extremities professionally repaired, some discolouration through paper boards from leather, half-title backed, remnants of paper pasted to front free endpaper verso, a few nicks to fore edge of plate V, occasional spotting to contents (particularly to plate X), overall a bright copy. First Thorp edition, complete in one volume, considered "one of the best texts to use for anyone who wishes to make a careful study of Newton's Principia" by Cohen, and "extremely rare" by Gjertsen (p. 481; p. 577). In 1776 the Northumberland clergyman Robert Thorp (1737–1812) announced a two-volume translation of the Principia, but only the first volume ever appeared. It constitutes the first revision of Motte, accompanied by an extensive commentary, and Cohen argues it to be "notably improved and amended" (Gjertsen, p. 577) from Motte's edition of 1729.
