        Lettres sur les animaux. Nouvelle édition augmentée.

      - Nuremberg, et se trouve à Paris, chez Saugrain Jeune, 1781. In-8, plein veau blond glacé havane de l'époque, dos lisse richement orné d'un décor de compartiments garnis de fers spéciaux urnes et médaillons, dentelles, palettes et filets dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin bordeaux, roulette dorée sur les chasses et coupes, dentelle intérieure, tranches rouges, (2) f., 350, (1) p. d'errata. Seconde édition en partie originale de cet ouvrage pionnier de l'éthologie, qui a fait l’objet plusieurs travaux et études récentes. Philosophe et physiocrate, collaborateur de l'Encyclopédie (il composa notamment des articles sur la chasse, la forêt et les animaux), proche de Condillac, Buffon, Diderot, Helvétius et d’Holbach, Le Roy était lieutenant des chasses du parc de Versailles, "admirablement placé pour étudier les moeurs et l'instinct des animaux" (Thiébaud). Dans ces "Lettres" qui avaient d'abord partiellement parues sous forme d’articles dans divers périodiques, Le Roy est le premier à rapporter une description précise des comportements animaux dans leur milieu, à démontrer leur capacité d'apprentissage, de transmission, de sensibilité, d'intelligence et leur perfectibilité adaptative, jusqu’à proposer l’existence d’un langage animal articulé. Les rééditions de cet ouvrage au XIXe siècle porteront un titre plus explicite: "Lettres philosophiques sur l'intelligence et la perfectibilité des animaux". (Thiébaud, 44-45). Petite épidermure à un plat. Très bel exemplaire, dans une fine et fraîche reliure de veau blond de l'époque. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nota de' regali avuti Da Sua Eccellenza la Signora Donna Costanza Falconieri, E Sua Eccellenza il Signor D. Luigi Braschi Onesti, In occasione de' loro già seguiti Sponsali

      Rome: Cracas, 1781. 4to (196 x 142 mm.). XIV pp. Double column, typographic ornamental column dividers, two woodcut tailpieces. Originally folded, traces of vertical crease. Paper softened and slightly browned, first leaf rehinged, first 2 leaves and last leaf each with a small internal repair affecting a few letters, restored in old ink facsimile, lower blank fore-corners of 5 leaves restored. Later boards, sides covered with contemporary copper-gilt paper (partly oxidized).*** A rare ephemeral list of the wedding gifts received by a wealthy Roman couple with close Papal ties. Luigi Braschi Onesti (1745-1816) was a nephew of Pope Pius VI (Gianangelo Braschi). Costanza Falconieri (1764-ca. 1820) was one of six children of Countess Giulia Millini, allegedly the Pope's mistress in her youth. Falconieri certainly enjoyed special favor: her dowry having been settled at a much higher sum than was usual for her family, thanks to a Papal dispensation, at age 16 she was married to Braschi Onesti in the Sistine Chapel, by the Pope himself. THE social event of the season, if not of the decade, the wedding celebrations were practically a state event: "nobles, princes, and Cardinals competed to offer propitiatory gifts to the newlyweds" (DBI). Their gifts, recorded in the present pamphlet, were staggering in their opulence and sheer number. Possibly intended for distribution to guests, this extraordinary inventory of wedding gifts contains 91 entries of gifts to the bride and 59 to the groom, listed by donor (identified by name and rank), but many of the entries include multiple gifts, and the total approaches 300. For the lady there was above all jewelry, dripping with diamonds, opals, emeralds and rubies; next in quantity came dresses, capes, and other garments, in satins and silks, embroidered with gold and lace, in pink (apparently a favored color) or white, or ash-grey, with floral designs, with lace trim, with matching muffs...; gold and silver boxes and painted baskets, pocket watches, a silver and ivory writing set preserved within an ornate wooden case from Portugal; travelling cases embellished in lapis lazuli and gold; silver dinner and coffee services; glassware including a mirror; fine linens; a gold and enamel clock; a jewel-encrusted fan; a reliquary, an "acquasanteria" (holy water font, presumably for a private chapel) of beaten silver with a bas-relief design of putti, the Virgin, St. Joseph, and the Holy Dove; and even a book, of theater architecture, presented by the author, Cosimo Morelli (apparently his Pianta e Spaccato del Nuovo Teatro d'Imola, Rome 1780), and splendidly bound with the couple's arms. Braschi Onesti, made Duke upon his marriage, was showered equally with jewels, rings, snuffboxes, and porcelain; but also with furniture including a Meissen writing desk, noble stallions for his stable, an ornately decorated gold-trimmed carriage for two, a pair of magnificent silver containers, one filled with chocolate and one with coffee, silver wine services, Parisian chandeliers, paintings and tapestries to decorate his new home, including a large painting of the meeting of Jephthah with his daughter, by Giovanni Francesco Romanelli, prayer books printed by Salvioni, finely bound "a la Francese," and precious objects for a cabinet: ancient cameos, oriental pearls, and enamelled and bejewelled boxes containing, conveniently, wads of cash. After the wedding the couple's lavishly appointed household became nothing less than a court, the center of high society and cultural events, where visiting dignitaries, newly anointed Cardinals, and all those interested in currying favor with the Pope were expected to pay their respects. Benefiting further from the latter's unabashed nepotism, Braschi Onesti became one of Italy's biggest landowners. The palace his uncle built for him on the Piazza Navona, which housed his splendid collection of art and antiquities, is now the Museo di Roma. Costanza Falcionieri gained celebrity, or notoriety, through her extramarital affairs (in this hardly exceeding her husband, who was of course excused for the same behavior), notably with the poet Vincenzo Monti, for a time Braschi Onesti's secretary. I locate four other copies, of which one still in the Palazzo Braschi, two in Germany and one at the British Library.

It was from this body of work that Schinkel made his own selection for the present work" (BAL). "He left his mark German architecture of the 19th century and beyond like no architect since" (Steffens).Corner of title-page torn off, restored, several plates heavily browned or foxed, a few others with tears, all restored.

        The Romans Polite to strangers. Palazzo Ruspoli al Corso Rome

      Londra 1781 - Scena di carnevale su via del Corso, finemente incisa in acquatinta e stampata con colore seppia. La veduta fa parte di una serie di quattro scene sul carnevale romano incise dal Sandby su disegno di David Allan. Questi fu uno dei primi artisti scozzesi ad interessarsi della vita popolare; visitò Roma tra il 1767 ed il 1777, realizzando una cospicua serie di disegni ed acquarelli, alcuni dei quali furono tradotti a stampa dal Sandby. La tecnica dell’acquatinta, conferisce all’opera quel particolare tono simile all’acquarello rendendo le opere molto affascinanti. In eccellente stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 550x370. Paul Sandby was a landscape painter and printmaker.David Allan was one of the first painters in Scotland to record the everyday life of ordinary people. He was based in Rome from around 1767 to 1777 where he painted historical subjects, portraits and the everyday life around him in a series of watercolours. In Scotland he enjoyed a successful career as both an artist and a teacher of art. Some of David Allan's watercolours of Rome were copied by Paul Sandby in London, as prints. The technique of aquatint (used here) allowed the engraver to create the effect of colour washes with the addition of etched lines for detail. This is a technique that provides an additional layer of meaning to the scene. The aquatint allows tonal variation and contrast which in turn creates atmosphere. There is a tremendous amount of detail in the print, and any British observer at the time would have received a good impression of what Rome was like from this print. Sandby's re-creation of Allan's watercolour would have made the image much more accessible through multiple copies. Only the most popular or marketable images would be copied as prints.The composition is quite complex. The background of the street and buildings is rendered with single point perspective, where the landscape appears to recede away to a single point in the distance. The viewpoint Allan chose was a low one. This means that the buildings appear to loom over the scene and a lot of sky is shown. In contrast, the action on the ground occupies only the lower third of the composition; Allan did not "zoom in" on any one aspect but created a general view of the scene. In this view, two British travellers on horseback are confronted by the extravagant costumes and masked figures from the entertainers at a Roman carnival. Despite their politeness these grotesque figures are slightly disturbing. Perhaps this scene demonstrates the alien and disorientating feeling of visiting a new city and discovering bizarre customs which the traveller has never experienced before. Etching, in excellent condition. Dimensioni 550 370mm

        Journal of Captain Cook's Last Voyage to the Pacific Ocean, on Discovery;

      London: E. Newbery,, 1781. performed in the years 1776, 1777, 1778, 1779, illustrated with cuts, and a chart, shewing the tracts of the ships employed in this expedition. Faithfully narrated from the original MS. Octavo (208 x 123 mm). Mid-19th century purple half calf, decorative gilt spine, marbled sides, red speckled edges, drab olivine endpapers. Housed in a green cloth chemise and green quarter morocco slipcase. Engraved folding frontispiece of the death of Cook, folding map, 4 plates (one folding, two by Royce after Dodd). From the library of the noted bibliophile Frank S. Streeter (d.2006), with his oval book label; holograph coat of arms on preliminary blank. Spine sunned, binding rubbed at extremities, corner of Q3 torn away with loss of a few words, stain in margin at B1, map laid down, abraded lightly at folds (a couple of old tape marks), but withal a very good copy. First edition of the "first full account in English of Cook's third voyage, published anonymously to avoid legal action by the Admiralty" (Forbes). An attractive copy, with the points outlined for Forbes's state A (although "the exact priority not established"). "The author, John Rickman, was a second lieutenant aboard the Discovery (being discharged to the Resolution on August 23, 1779). While at China, Captain King (under orders from the Admiralty) took possession of and sealed all logs, journals, maps, and drawings, an action that Rickman describes on page 382. Despite this action, the author was somehow able to secretly retain a copy of his journal, which formed the basis of this text. It provides an important supplement to the official account of the third voyage published in 1784" (ibid.).

        Naturgeschichte des Niederdeutschlands und anderer Gegenden. I-II (plates)

      - Nürnberg, Raspe, [1781-]1805. Small folio (28.2 x 22.0 cm). Volume I(I-VII), II(VIII-XV). In new protective wrapper with original wrapper text printed.l A very rare work by Johann Wilhelm Karl Adolph Freiherr von Hüpsch (ca. 1730-1805). As far as we know these are all the plates that were ever published. According to the publisher, Raspe, the plates of the second part had been in his possession for more than 20 years. He states that there should be an accompanying manuscript in the estate of Von Hüpsch, but this was never found (see the front wrapper to part II, titled "Zweiter Theil. Vorläufige Abbildungen von Tab. VIII. bis XV, which is provided here in reproduction). The text of the first part was published in 1781, but is not included here. The work contains the first illustration of Ordovician receptaculitid algae, or sponges - this has been debated ever since. Other illustrations include Mesozoic cephalopods, gastropods, bivalves, sea urchins, sponges, etc. There are known to be copies of the first part in which not all the plates are hand-coloured. A very good set. Very rare, not in any major reference work.

First edition of one of the most influential philosophy books ever published, the first version of the Critique of Pure Reason. "Kant's great achievement was to conclude finally the lines on which philosophical speculation had proceeded in the eighteenth century, and to open up a new and more comprehensive system of dealing with the problems of philosophy. Of the two main systems which preceded his own, Kant had little or no sympathy with the metaphysical categorization of the Cartesians, and inclined more to the empirical methods of Locke and Leibniz … The influence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy. No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas. His penetrating analysis of the elements involved in synthesis, and the subjective process by which these elements are realized in the individual consciousness, demonstrated the operation of 'pure reason'; and the simplicity and cogency of his arguments achieved immediate fame" (PMM).

        L'Arcadie.

      Angers : Pavie 1781 - Plaquette in-120 relié demi-basane, 160 pages. .Edition originale du second livre de Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, illustrée en frontispice d'une ravissante gravure sur acier non signée, représentant trois personnages devant une maison, avec cette légende: Dès qu'elle aperçut des étrangers, elle baissa les yeux et se mit à rougir. Dans l'Arcadie (Angers, 1781, in-18), sorte de poème en prose, Bernardin décrit la république idéale qu'il rêvait. Dans les Études de la nature (Paris, 1784, 3 vol. in-12), il a, suivant ses propres paroles, d'abord eu l'idée d'écrire une histoire générale de la nature mais, renonçant à un plan trop vaste, il s'est borné à en rassembler quelques portions. Dans la première partie, dirigée contre les athées, dont il fait des partisans du désordre et du hasard, il leur oppose l'ordre et l'harmonie de la Nature, où il trouve d'admirables thèmes pour son talent. Vers la dixième étude, il commence plus directement l'exposition de ses vues et des harmonies telles qu'il les conçoit : le jeu des contrastes, des consonances et des reflets en toutes choses. La dernière partie de l'ouvrage est surtout relative à la société, à ses maux et aux remèdes qu'on y peut apporter. Le mérite et l'originalité de l'auteur est d'y substituer, d'un bout à l'autre, le sentiment, l'éloquence, le charme des tableaux à la science. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Cette lettre a été rédigée lors de l'incarcération de Sade à Vincennes, probablement en avril 1781, si l'on en croit les quelques repères temporels évoqués par le rédacteur lui-même. Le Marquis parle en effet de la fin de l'« exil de Marseille », faisant ainsi référence à la décision de la cour d'Aix-en-Provence qui, le 14 juillet 1778, casse le jugement pour débauche et libertinage, mais lui interdit d'habiter ou de fréquenter la cité phocéenne pour une durée de trois ans. Sade revient en outre sur l'un des épisodes marquants de sa vie, sa cavale italienne, qui eut lieu entre janvier et novembre 1776 : « il valait autant me tuer tout d'un coup ou me laisser dans le pays étranger quand j'y étais ». Le Marquis évoque également « l'étonnante faveur » qui lui est faite « de changer de bercail », c'est-à-dire sa possible translation au fort de Montélimar. En avril 1781, Madame de Sade obtient du Roi, par l'intermédiaire de son amie Madame de Sorans, l'autorisation que son mari soit transféré à la prison montilienne. Le Marquis explique dans la lettre : « je trouve qu'il faut être d'une belle impudence pour oser écrire à un malheureux qui souffre depuis neuf ans [...] de remercier bien humblement la personne qui lui obtint l'étonnante faveur de changer de bercail ». Sade fait sans doute ici référence à cette fameuse Madame de Sorans, dame de compagnie de la s

        Nuova Pianta di Roma in prospettiva

      Roma 1781 - La Nuova Pianta di Roma in prospettiva, fu pubblicata da Vasi nel 1781, e rappresenta uno degli ultimi lavori dell'artista prima della sua morte, l'anno successivo. Il titolo e la dedica, si leggono nel margine inferiore, sulla destra "Nuova Pianta di Roma in prospettiva. Dedicata a sua eccellenza il principe d. Abondio Rezzonico senatore di Roma dall'umilissimo, devotissimo, ed obbligatissimo servitore il cav. Giuseppe Vasi l'anno. 1781." La Nuova Pianta, più che una mappa in senso stretto, è piuttosto una veduta a volo d'uccello con oltre 300 punti d'interesse identificabili. Probabilmente la Pianta fu concepita per accompagnare l'Itinerario, pubblicato 18 anni prima. Le indicazioni toponomastiche si trovano parte nella pianta, parte in una rubrica dal titolo: "Indice degli edifici, e siti più cospicui di Roma correlativi ai dieci libri, e al gran prospetto della medesima città, incisi, e pubblicati dall'istesso cav. G. Vasi". A differenza del celebre Prospetto dell'Alma Città di Roma, o anche delle stesse vedute delle Magnificenze, questa pianta del Vasi non è particolarmente originale. Il modello di riferimento è chiaramente la pianta piccola di G.B. Falda del 1667, a proiezione verticale con elevazione, e con l'Oriente in alto. Le dimensioni sono all'incirca le stesse, così come anche le mura di confine della città ricalcano quelle del Falda, senza tener conto degli aggiornamenti registrati nella mappa del Nolli, pubblicata nel 1748, ma aggiornandola invece sulla base delle sue conoscenze della città. In questo senso, il titolo di Nuova Pianta è veritiero perché se lo stile cartografico è quello del Cartaro, se la proiezione, l'orientazione e più in generale la forma, richiamato il modello del Falda, la mappa del Vasi non registra né la Roma tardo cinquecentesca del Cartaro né quella tardo- seicentesca di Falda, ma la Roma di fine settecento, nota all'autore. Incisione su rame, impressa su carta vergata coeva e suddivisa in segmenti applicati su tela e più volte ripiegati, alcuni fori di tarlo nella parte superiore, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. The Nuova Pianta by Vasi was published 18 years after the Itinerario and follows an earlier, smaller version, the Nuova Pianta di Roma (piccola) which was first published in 1667. Evidently, the later map was conceived as a companion for the Itinerario and although the numbered sites do not correspond to the text in the Itinerario, they do traverse the city in a similar manner. The map itself is modeled after Falda's 1676 Pianta di Roma which shows the city as a plan projection view with the traditional east orientation (i.e., east is at the top of the page). The matrici (copper plates) of Falda's map were subsequently revised on four different occassions, the last of which was authored by Giuseppe Vasi in 1781. It is not a map in a technical sense, it is rather a bird's eye view with more than 300 points of interest clearly identified. The view is taken from the West, so top is East, left is North and right is South. Copperplate, printed on contemporary laid paper, laid down on canvas and folded, some worm holes in the top right, otherwise in good condition. Frutaz, Le piante di Roma, CLXXIV; J.

        Vaderlandsch A-B boek voor de Nederlandsche jeugd & Eerste beginsels van het cyfferen en van alle kunsten en handwerken & Spel- en lees-oefeningen.

      W. Holtrop, Amsterdam 1781 - [xxxiv], 58, [ii] pp. An engraved title page, full-page illustration with alphabets, 27 half-page engravings and a further 4 full-page engravings. *Waller 1639; *Buijnsters BNK 38 This book was published and used in a time when the Netherlands was in economic and moral decline. The author hoped to instill patriotic duty and accomplish a re-orientation of society's moral stance. To that end, the alphabet is illustrated with more or less ideologically chosen keyword, that was accompanied by an illustration, a two-line poem and a prose piece. This way, the glory of the Enlightenment was communicated to the young mind, page after page. As opposed to the earlier Haneboek (another educational work), the Vaderlandsch A-B boek was mostly devoid of Biblical matter. Alhtough the texts themselves might seem crudely political to the modern eye, one must bear in mind that this trend-setting schoolbook tried to break through odl values. For a thorough essay on Dutch A.B.C. books see Ter Linden, De Vries & Welsink: "A is een Aapje" (Amsterdam, 1995). Half cloth with marbled boards. Cover condition: Good: ex-library (ticket to front and tail of the spine, the ticket to the spine taped over), spine with a small split, edges rubbed. Inside condition: Very good: rubber stamp to the verso of the title, and on the final page. Jan Hendrik Swildens (Voerendaal 1745 - Amsterdam 1809) was a Dutch professor of law in Franeker. He was also a philosopher of the Enlightenment, who had a special interest in educational problems. His ideas on education are in part assimilated into the 1806 Education Act. Other important works by Swildens are: Bardietjes (1779 - unrhymed lyrical poetry) and Godsdienstig staatsboek (1803). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
