PINI Ermenegildo
Milano, presso Giuseppe Marelli, 1777. In-16 gr. (mm. 193x130), cartoncino rustico coevo, tit. ms. al dorso, pp. 110, con 2 tavv. inc. in rame (f.t. e più volte ripieg.): una carta geografica dell'Isola d'Elba, in scala di Miglia 12. fiorentine, e una interessantissima veduta della “Cava della miniera di ferro di Rio.., An. 1777”, inc. da Domenico Cagnoni su disegno dello stesso Pini. Dopo una breve introduzione, nella quale si dichiara in disaccordo con talune conclusioni cui erano pervenuti studiosi che l'avevano preceduto, l'A. passa alla descrizione topografica dell'isola con riferimento alla sua estensione, al clima, alla natura delle montagne. Trattando dei monti dell'Elba si sofferma con particolare attenzione a descrivere “l'alta montagna di Rio, dove sta la cava antica delle miniere di ferro”. L'opera contiene anche una accurata catalogazione di minerali ivi reperiti, suddivisa in dodici sezioni. Rara "edizione originale", dedicata dall'A. “al Cardinale Ignazio Boncompagni Ludovisi Legato a latere di Bologna” e all'”Ecc.imo suo fratello il Principe di Piombino, Padrone della massima parte dell'Elba” che gli hanno reso “agiato e vantaggioso” il soggiorno nell'isola, durato tre settimane, e fornito “i mezzi più cortesi ed efficaci per farvi comodamente molte osservazioni mineralogiche”. Il milanese Carlo Pini (1739-1825) vestì l'abito talare nel 1756 assumendo il nome di Ermenegildo. Studiò teologia a Roma e a Napoli e nel 1763 tornò a Milano dove concluse il proprio iter formativo presso il Liceo S. Alessandro.

VOLTA Alessandro
nella Stamp. di Giuseppe Marelli, 1777. In-8 p. (mm. 200x125), cartonato muto coevo, pp. 147,(1); vignetta incisa al frontesp. e 13 finissime inc. su rame nel t., alcune delle quali raffigurano esperimenti. "Edizione originale" completa di questo raro e importantissimo trattato, composto di sette lettere, sulla scoperta delle proprietà del metano, identificato in precedenza con l'aria infiammabile. Il Volta dimostra che bruciando quest'ultima si consuma appena un quarto del volume d'ossigeno necessario per una completa combustione del metano. Per la storia della chimica è della massima importanza la scoperta degli idrocarburi e il primo e più importante idrocarburo, dal quale tutti gli altri e tutti i composti organici derivano, è contenuto nel gas delle paludi, che fu poi detto metano. Fu nel 1776 che il Volta scoprì il gas delle paludi in seguito ad un'osservazione accidentale del P. Campi. E questo nuovo gas e le località in cui l'aveva trovato viene poi descritto in sette lettere al suo amico P. Campi.. Cfr. Duveen, p. 606 - Poggendorff,II,1231 - Riccardi "Sulle opere di A. Volta", p. 22 (11): "Raro libretto". Piccolissimi fori di tarlo su alc. cc. al marg. interno bianco; cucitura interna leggerm. allentata, altrim. fresco esemplare ben conservato.

MONTESQUIEU, Charles Louis de Secondat, Baron de.
London: Printed for T. Evans, and W. Davis,, 1777. Translated from the French. In four volumes. 4 volumes, octavo (217 x 130 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red and green morocco labels to spines, remaining compartments elaborately tooled in gilt, raised bands. With the separately paginated and registered Index to the Spirit of Laws in volume 4. Engraved frontispiece to volume 1. Armorial bookplates of the Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire to front pastedowns of each volume, 20th-century bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and discriminating collector of 18th-century literature in contemporary bindings, to front free endpaper of volume 1, and a few neat ink annotations to contents. Extremities lightly worn, corners gently bumped, very minor rubbing to the lower board of volume 2 and a few spots to rear board of volume 3, contents a little foxed, otherwise a bright, clean set. First collected edition in English of the works of "one of the great political philosophers of the Enlightenment" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Books XI and XII of The Spirit of Laws are sparsely but intelligently annotated in a contemporary hand, possibly by the 12th Earl of Suffolk and 5th Earl of Berkshire, Henry Howard (1739–1779); for example, Montesquieu's discussion of Roman government concludes with the reader's observation that "the Causes of destroying the Liberty of Rome better explain'd in this chapter than by any other treatise I ever read on the subject".

Dyche, Thomas & William Pardon
London: printed for C. Bathurst [et al. ], 1777. 8vo, [16] & unpaginated lexicon in double column; text in good condition, but in a battered sheepskin binding. Alston V, 160. Because this dictionary stressed departments not found in Bailey, Dyche & Pardon were able to grab a small, loyal share of the growing dictionary market. Their dictionary, aimed at a less educated class than Bailey's, stressed proper accentuation and pronunciation (it was the first of many dictionaries to stress pronunciation); and, anticipating Webster, suggested several improvements in spelling which were subsequently adopted ("physick" to "physic, " for example). Etymology is omitted. The dictionary was begun by Dyche, a schoolmaster, who had two previous non-dictionaries to his credit, A Guide to the English Tongue (1709; 48th ed. by 1774); and, A Dictionary of all the Words Commonly Us'd in the English Tongue (1723), both of which stressed spelling and pronunciation, but gave no definitions. Of William Pardon little is known. The New General English Dictionary is, however, "so different in character from the earlier Dyche works that we are naturally tempted to visit its eccentricities on the unknown Pardon" (see Starnes & Noyes, chapt. XVII). The book incorporates the names and descriptions of hundreds of English and Welsh towns, with their market-days, government, manufactures, distances from London, etc. It was partially due to this gazetteer-like entry that the work remained popular with the public.

Richardson, John.
1777. Folio (275 x 407 mm). 2 vols. (4), XLVIII, (16) pp. 2144 (but: 2136: skipping 441-448) cols. (4) pp., XX cols., (6) pp., 2286 cols. 19th century English calf. First edition of the first Persian-Arabic-English dictionary, edited by the orientalist Sir John Richardson (1740/41-1795). The first volume includes a dissertation on the languages, literature and manners of Eastern nations. ''An excellent work. As the first vol. or Persian, Arabic and English part was published separately, many more copies were sold than of the second or English, Persian, and Arabic. A few broken sets of the first volume being left, the booksellers were led to reprint several deficient sheets, and so with the copies left on hand of the second vol. they made up some perfect sets. But these are easily known from the original'' (Clarke), as they are printed in London in 1800. - "On 12 November 1767 [Richardson] was proposed for the Society of Antiquaries of London as of Furnival's Inn. In London he pursued both the law and the study of Arabic and Persian. In his oriental interests Richardson was much influenced by another young man, William Jones, who was already coming to be regarded as a prodigy of learning in Asian languages. With the growth of British territorial power in India the potential market for a Persian dictionary had aroused the interest of London publishers and by 1770 Jones and Richardson were working on a new version of Franciscus Meninski's 'Thesaurus linguarum orientalium', first published in 1680-87. Progress was very slow, and Jones withdrew to concentrate on his legal career … [Click Below for Full Description]

QUARLES, Francis
Printed and Sold by H. Trapp, London, 1777. [2], 289pp, [1]. Without two terminal leaves - translations of Latin mottoes and directions to the binder respectively. With an engraved half-title and a further 96 engraved plates. Contemporary gilt-tooled calf, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece. Rubbed, cracking to spine, corners bumped. Marbled endpapers, front blank fly-leaf removed, small hole to engraved half-title, very occasional ink-spotting/marking. First printed in 1635, the aptly named Emblems, by English renaissance poet Francis Quarles (1592-1644), consists of divine and moral poetry, illustrated throughout with allegorical baroque designs, promoting the uncontroversial characteristics typically identified with good Christian living. The work, which proved the most successful Quarles produced, was dedicated to Edward Benlowes, who had provided inspiration in presenting the poet with copies of two highly esteemed seventeenth-century Jesuit continental emblem books; Pia Desideria (1624) and Typus Mundi (1627). Quarles produced a second poetic-emblem book, the Hieroglyphikes of the Life of Man in 1638, and the two works were collected together in over 30 editions before 1800. ESTC T94285.

Glasse, Samuel; Richard Kaye, and Robert Markham
London, 1777-1779. 12mo. (iv), 36; (iv), 62; (iv), 23; (1)-33, (1) pp. The first two sermons - by Glasse - sketch out the mission of the Society, and list receipts and disbursements, and the various constituencies served by the Society’s charity. These include such items as, “Distresst boys fitted out and sent to sea as servants,” and the “sons of poor widows.” Those children likely to be sent to sea included “Orphans lurking about the streets... Vagabonds, the major part of them overwhelmed with Filth and Rags... Forsaken poor Boys, from the Country.” Donations were received from the East India Company and a lengthy list of subscribers including the likes of George Pococke and Jonas Hanway, not to mention “His Royal Highness the Nabob of the Carnatic.” The third sermon, by Kaye, lauds the Marine Society and its charitable aims, and the fourth sermon, by Markham, gives a list of members and subscriptions. All these sermons are quite scarce, with no copies being held outside the UK. VG, bound in period full calf with spine label.

BORGO CARLO (1731-1794).
Venezia, presso Antonio Zatta, 1777. In - 4ø; 11 cc. (ultima errata), 300 pp., 20 tavv. fuori testo incise in rame; bella vignetta al titolo incisa da P. A. Zatta. Legatura coeva in tutto cartone alla rustica, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Una macchiolina su una tavola. Ottimo esemplare a pieni margini con barbe. Edizione originale preceduta dalla circolazione di alcune rarissime copie senza anno di stampa (1770, secondo il d'Ayala ) e senza dedica. Assai interessante opera di architettura militare illustrata da 20 grandi tavole incise. Carlo Borgo, appartenente alla Compagnia di Ges--, volle con questa pubblicazione rendere omaggio a Federico II di Prussia, protettore dei dispersi dell'ordine gesuitico, da poco soppresso. "L'opera, che secondo l'autore avrebbe dovuto completare quella sugli assedi del Vauban, suggeriva la costruzione di fortificazioni che offrissero al nemico la minor superficie possibile d'attacco; consigliava una difesa statica basata piuttosto sulla potenza delle artiglierie che sulle sortite; mostrava l'utilit... dell'uso di proiettili a punta al posto delle palle; e progettava, infine, un telegrafo ottico da campo, fissando cifre e segni convenzionali. Federico II premi• il B. con un brevetto di tenente colonnello onorario del genio, mentre l'opera conosceva due traduzioni: in lingua spagnola ad opera del gesuita Casseda e in francese ad opera dell'abate J. J. Rossignol (Pens‚es sur l'art de fortifier les places?, Turin 1805)" (DBI). "Il Borgo si dimostra eccellente teoretico fortificatore; sicchŠ Federico facevalo colonnello de' suoi ingegneri militar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sincerus, Germanus (Pseudonym).
Augsburg: bey Matth�us Riegers sel. S�hnen, 1777. Augsburg: bey Matthäus Riegers sel. Söhnen, 1777. hardcover. Gut. Mit Register und einem ausklappbaren Kupferstich (Uringläser) im Anhang. Kl.-8vo. (ca. 16,5 x 10,5 cm). Pappband der Zeit ohne Rückentitel, 3 Bll., 99 (5) S. VD18 10348581. Es fehlt das gestochene Frontispiz. - Germanus Sincerus war im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert ein von mehreren Autoren benutztes Pseudonym und konnte für den Verfasser dieser Schrift nicht aufgeklärt werden. In seinem Vorbericht bezeichnet er sich als "Ordinarius", der seit vielen Jahren Patienten "bedient". Durchaus modern mutet seine Warnung vor übertriebener Selbstmedikation an: "Ich warne aber einen jeden sehr wohlmeynend vor der pharmaco-mania, daß man nicht täglich den medicinischen Kasten besuche, und beym jeden leichten Zufalle, sogleich Arzney gebrauche, als wodurch der Sensus vitalis internus obtundiret, mithin die Natur schläfrig gemacht wird, daß also mit der Zeit gar keine Medicin mehr anschlagen würde" (Vorbericht, letzte S.). Derselbe Autor brachte später ein umfangreicheres "Medicinische Handbüchlein für Stadt- und Landwundärzte" ebenfalls bei Rieger heraus, möglicherweise eine Erweiterung mit abgeändertem Titel. - Einband abgegriffen und etwas fleckig, Ecken leicht bestoßen. Innen kleiner Flüssigkeitsfleck auf den ersten und letzten Seiten im unteren Außenrand. Kleiner verblasster Stempel auf dem Titel. Tafel mit Knickspuren.

8°: * 6 A-N 8 O 2 (-O2), gepag.: [12] 209 pp. Met op de titelpagina een gegraveerd vignet door L.B. en met 4 gravures door Jan Punt naar Jacobus Buijs, gedateerd 1777. Half kunstleer. Lit.: Noordhoek, Gellert und Holland (Amsterdam 1928); De la Fontaine Verwey, De illustratie van letterkundige werken in de XVIIIe eeuw (Amsterdam 1934) pp. 83-97; L. Buijnsters-Smets, 'Jacobus Buijs (1724-1801) als boekillustrator', in: Doc.blad Werkgroep Achttiende Eeuw 1984, pp 91-107. Mateboer 904/ 905 (titelpagina van 904, vingerafdruk van 905); Waller 591; Scheepers II, 416; Buisman 634; Forum II, 856 (1774), Buijnsters-Smets 38 (1774) Tweede druk van de nieuwe vertaling van Gellerts 'Zweedse Gravinne', geïllustreerd door Jacobus Buys. Voor Buys, die mét Vinkeles beschouwd wordt als de belangrijkste boekillustrator van de tweede helft van de 18e eeuw, was het een van zijn eerste illustraties. Voor Jan Punt kwam in 1777 juist een einde aan een roemvolle loopbaan als acteur. De laatste twee jaar van zijn leven verdiende hij zijn brood uitsluitend als graveur, een vak dat hij naast het toneelspelen zijn leven lang heeft uitgeoefend. De 4 platen komen ook wel voor in exemplaren van de eerste druk van deze uitgave, die in 1774 was verschenen.
