With 3 engraved vignettes pasted in. + (4),360 pp. & 1 engraved plate.

Good inserts with a few minor spots and traces of wear. Tear to upper margin on p. 15 in volume II. Old signature on front pastedown.Published by Per Rudin and with a biography by C. F. Scheffer. The engraved plates and vignettes are by D. Fehrman, E. Martin, J. F. Martin och J. Gillberg. One of the vignettes, "Den sanna critiquen", which is loosely inserted on p. 175 in volume II, is lacking in some copies. It is however present in most copies and therefore not the great rarity which it has sometimes been presented as. Dalin's "Poetiska arbeten" is one of the finest examples of book illustration from Sweden's Gustavian era. The author (1708-63) is considered to be one of the great renewers of the Swedish language during the 18th century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        L'Apollon Moderne, ou le Développement Intellectuel par les Sons de la Musique. Nouvelle dévouverte de première culture, aisée et certaine pour parvenir à la réussite dans les Sciences, et nouveau moyen d'apprendre facilement la Musique. Deuxième Œuvre.

      A Lyon, 1782. - in-8. XXXII. 264pp. 3ff. (les pages 116-117 sont gravées en taille-douce). Demi-basane ancienne restaurée. Edition Originale (exemplaire de seconde émission à la date de 1782) de cet ouvrage très rare du musicographe lyonnais C. R. Brijon (né vers 1720) qui présente "plusieurs aperçus intéressants et curieux" (Larousse). L'auteur y développe sa théorie pédagogique selon laquelle la musique participe au développement de l'intelligence, avec de nombreuses observations physiologiques sur le cerveau, la voix et l'oreille rédigées avec l'aide d'un médecin, le docteur Julien. Il avait notamment inventé un appareil appelé "Aurillette" servant à favoriser l'apprentissage des notes de musique, et qu'il vendait chez lui. Conçu initialement pour être accompagné d'un volume d'exercices gravés en taille douce, l'ouvrage semble également avoir été diffusé sous forme de texte seul comme c'est le cas ici. Relié à l'époque sans mention de tomaison, notre exemplaire présente un collationnement identique à celui de la plupart des exemplaires que nous avons pu localiser dans les bibliothèques publiques. Exemplaire de seconde émission, avec le faux-titre et le titre réimprimés à la date de 1782. Quelques rousseurs et brunissures. Mention manuscrite d'appartenance à "Baussand professeur de musique à Lyon rue Lanterne (an 1868)". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        "Sonata seconda / di Violino e Basso". Eigenh. Musikmanuskript mit U.

      [Madrid, vor 1782].. Titel, 10 SS. Geheftet. Qu.-Folio.. Die verschollene Urschrift von Brunettis zweiter Violinsonate für seinen Schüler, Carlos Fürst von Asturien (und später König Karl IV. von Spanien): drei Sätze "Largo cantabile", "Andantino con grazia" und "Allegretto e non troppo". Unter dem Titel die Zueignung: "Fatta esspresamente per l'uso del Sere.mo Sig.r Principe di Asturias (e non altro) / Composta / Da Gaetano Brunetti"; die folgende Datierung "nell' anno ..." unleserlich mit Wasser getilgt (die ersten beiden Worte unter UV-Licht rekonstruierbar). Eine Abschrift war im Archivio General del Palacio Real in Madrid bekannt (Sammelhandschrift der Prinzensonaten, Signatur Leg. 1617, Cat. 1606). - "Brunetti, zwei Jahrhunderte hindurch unverdient vernachlässigt, war einer der ungewöhnlichsten und fortschrittlichsten Komponisten seiner Zeit. Seine Musik lebt vom Kontrast. Am deutlichsten tritt dieser Zug in Brunettis sensibler Neigung zu schnellen Stimmungsumschwüngen in Erscheinung [...] Die meisten seiner Violinsonaten con basso schrieb Brunetti für seinen Schüler Carlos IV., der sie vermutlich im Verlauf seiner Studien aufgeführt hat. Die Violinstimmen sind kunstvoll und schwierig und können nicht für einen Anfänger gedacht sein. [...] Der Bass ist stets eine aktive, selbständige Stimme, die nur bisweilen die Violine imitiert. Fast alle Sonaten haben die Satzfolge schnell-langsam-schnell mit der Sonatenform im ersten Satz. Die frühen Sätze nähern sich in der Struktur manchmal den zweiteiligen Sonaten von D. Scarlatti, aber in den späteren Sätzen erweitert Brunetti die Durchführungsteile, so daß die Dreiteiligkeit klarer hervortritt" (MGG). Der wahrscheinlich in Livorno ausgebildete Brunetti kam spätestens 1762 an den Hof zu Madrid. 1767 wurde er als Violinist in die Kgl. Kapelle aufgenommen, deren Mitglied er sein Leben lang blieb. Im gleichen Jahr wurde er vom König zum Violinlehrer und Musikmeister seines Sohns, des nachmaligen Königs Karl IV. ernannt. Brunettis früheste Kompositionen für den Hof datieren aus dieser Zeit. Sein Schüler erwies sich auch nach seiner Thronbesteigung Ende 1788 als großer Musikfreund und unterhielt mit den "musicos de la real camera" ein dreiköpfiges Ensemble, zu welchem Brunetti zählte und das zu seinem eigenen Vergnügen zu spielen hatte; gelegentlich wirkte der König selbst bei Aufführungen mit. 1795 rief Karl IV. das Kgl. Kammerorchester ins Leben und ernannte Brunetti zu dessen Leiter. "The King's interest in art (as Goya's patron), his accomplishments as a violinist and his insatiable appetite for new works provided a stimulating cultural atmosphere in which Brunetti flourished [...] "Brunetti's music has remained virtually unknown since the 18th century; very little was published during his lifetime, and only a few pieces are available in modern editions [...] Brunetti's consistently graceful melodic lines are built from a single small motif, providing the cohesive structural element of the whole movement" (New Grove). - Durchgehender Braunfleck von Feuchtigkeitseinwirkung (zu Beginn stärker), sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. Sehr selten: seit 1950 ist ein einziges Musikmanuskript von Brunettis Hand auf dem Markt bekannt ("Introito a 4", 7 Seiten, unvollendet, 1981 bei Christie's an Otto Haas zugeschlagen). - Labrador 43.

        De la Nouvelle Jérusalem et de sa doctrine céleste ; d'après ce qu'on entendu au ciel. Précédé d'une breve dissertation touchant le nouveau ciel et la nouvelle terre

Upper joint cracked the top 8 cm. Lower joint split into head and tail. Although this work is the most famous of the author, because of its title which many churches have taken the symbolic name, it is not the first of its kind and is even be a reduction of the heavenly arcana, but while Arcane is an exegesis of Genesis, The New Jerusalem is one of the verses of the Apocalypse of St. John, in which Swedenborg, as in his other works book an ultra rational view of metaphysics and spirituality. Renowned scientist, Swedenborg knows a mystical attack at age 55. God speaks to him and allows him to communicate with the angels: "I am the Lord, the Creator and Redeemer, I chose you to make known to men the inner spiritual meaning of the Holy Scriptures I dictate to you everything you should. write. " The author know several visions he transcribed in his books. Swedenborg no breaks with the doctrines of Luther which it is derived but the relationship with God based on love, and it gives great importance to the angels who are the foundation of the existence of good and evil and the soul is an emanation of divinity. He was soon regarded as a universal genius, evidenced by the considerable influence he had, particularly in France on the writers of the Romantic generation, Balzac, who is quoted extensively, and draw him food to his theory of desire Baudelaire, Cazotte and elsewhere in William Blake, Jung ... and even in Japan, in the book: The Buddha in the north.

        The History of Little Goody Two-shoes; Otherwise called, Mrs. Margery Two-Shoes with the Means By Which She Acquired Her Learning and wisdom, and in Consequence Thereof Her estate; Let Forth at Large for the Benefit of those, Who from a State of Rags .

      Thomas Walker (printer), Dublin 1782 - 138, 56 (appendix), 2 (advertisments) pp. 1782. Eight edition. A very scarce Dublin printing of this important children's work. Author - unknown though Olver Goldsmith and the publisher have been suggested. Neither is it the first known use of the phrase 'little goody two-shoes' though it probably did much to publicize it. Nevertheless this 'cindarella' type morality tale has become a seminal work in early childrens' literature and something of a holy grail for the collector. This particular copy is both an early printing but quite possibly a 'knock-off' being printed in Dublin before the days of copyright protection. I have no hard evidence regarding this but it is worth noting that the copper-engraved frontispiece of the heroine of the story has been printed in reverse - a good sign that it was copied - the new plate would therefore print it in reverse with the dominant two trees above our heroine to the left of the engraving and no longer to the right (your comments would be welcomed??). This copy is clearly attributed on the title page to Thomas Walker of Dame-Street, 1782, Dublin - price a British Six pence. It is also clearly attributed as the eighth edition. It is worth noting that my search on Copac did not find a single eighth edition copy (though one claims to be and eighth - it is actually a seventh edition). It collates differently to the seventh edition - an edition which several libraries hold. So the book is undoubtedly very scarce indeed. It is in tired condition ranging somewhere from good to fair. The boards (full leather) are almost certainly contemporaneous but are very worn - the leather - completely rubbed away in places. A couple of cords now lie exposed. There are several gilt embossed 'suns' - themselves surrounded by a gilt embossed circle - but this is all that remains of the original decoration. The rear board is very loose - hanging by a single cord and there is splitting to the front inner hinge though the front board remains fairly firmly attached. Both endpapers are present, though may well be later as the paper used (thinner) has been used to back the entire frontispiece. There are a couple of other much smaller paper repairs. Its illustrations collate as such: fronispiece and 35 woodcuts (yes 35) - three in the final appendix. The corner of the dedication page (with the title repeated to verso) has been lost with associated loss of text. A relatively small worm hole affects the frontispiece and the following ten pages - slight loss of text - a letter here and there. Loss to several page corners - again with slight loss of text. Puncture marks to around 3 or 4 leaves with slight loss of text. A number of page corners are dog-eared or turned. A 3.5cm tear to the corner of one leaf. Some finger soiling.

        The Kingdom Of Portugal and the Algaeve, with the adjacent Spanish Provinces ... with a small map of Brazil. "Regna Portugalliæ et Algarbiæ cum adjacentibus Hispaniæ Provinciis. Quibus in peculiari et minori Mappa adjunctum est Brasiliæ Regnum."

      Europe: Augsburg, Lotter, Tobias Conrad, 1782. Copper engraved map of Portugal and the Algarve engraved by George Friderich Lotter for by Tobias Lotter. Original old colour; verso blank. The map shows Portugal and the Algarve with the adjacent provinces of Spain. Inset map of Portuguese settlements in Brazil. Large decorative title cartouche borne on the shoulders of Posidon with ships surrounding him, indicating Portugal's shipping and exploratory history; above the title coats of arms of the two kingdoms. Good dark impression; bright colours; 4 worm holes to body of map and another 4 to left margin; margins to sides short due to size of plate. Lotter, Tobias Conrad, 1717-1777. Lotter was an engraver at his father in law' Mattaus Seutter's publishing house. Upon Seutter's retirement, Lotter took control of the firm and republished many of his maps with minor updates and changes. In 1756 he succeeded his father-in-law jointly with Albrecht Seutter's son and Georg Balthasar Probst, also re lated by marriage. In 1758 Lotter inherited half the copperplates of the Seutter firm and was able to set up his own, independent publishing house that same year. Some of his best known atlas works are the "Atlas Minor" (c.1744), the "Atlas Der Ganzen Welt" (1748) and the "Atlas Novus" (c.1770), as well as numerous, important, single maps. In his "Atlas minor.Praecipua orbis terrarum imperia,.." he added his name as publisher; later when he had full control he would re engrave the titles inserting his own name. In time, Lotter became one of the most prominent mid 18th century map publishers. After his death in 1777, the firm was taken over by his sons Matthaus Albrecht Lotter and Georg Friedrich Lotter, who republished and updated many of their father's maps.

        THE HOLY BIBLE, CONTAINING THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS,: NEWLY TRANSLATED OUT OF THE ORIGINAL TONGUES; AND WITH THE FORMER TRANSLATIONS DILIGENTLY COMPARED AND REVISED.

      Philadelphia: Printed and sold by Robert Aitken, 1781-1782. - Two parts bound in one volume. [1452]pp., text in two columns. Complete with title-leaves to both the Old and New Testaments, along with the certification leaf from Congress (bound between the Old Testament and New Testament). 12mo. Contemporary sheep. Minor loss to lower portion of spine. Very good. In a dark red morocco box. Provenance: Joshua Coit (signature dated 1783); William L. Learned (signature dated 1856). The Aitken Bible is one of the most celebrated American Bibles, being the first complete English Bible printed in America. During the colonial era, the monopoly on printing English Bibles belonged to the Royal Printer, and the colonies were supplied entirely with Bibles printed in England. The first Bible printed in the British colonies in America was the famous Eliot Indian Bible, in Algonquin, issued in Cambridge in 1661-63 and reprinted in 1680-85. The 18th-century saw the printing of Bibles in German. With the American Revolution, the British monopoly on English- language Bibles naturally ended, and the embargo on goods from England acted to create a shortage. Aitken, a Philadelphia printer, undertook the task, producing the New Testament in 1781 and the Old Testament in 1782. On completion, he petitioned the Continental Congress for their endorsement and received it in September 1782. Because of this official endorsement and the reasons behind its production, the Aitken Bible is often referred to as "The Bible of the Revolution." This highspot amongst printed Americana has become very difficult to find in any condition. The present example, despite minor faults, is a very good copy of a work usually found in poor condition, here in a contemporary American binding. This copy with provenance to Joshua Coit (1758-98), a graduate of Harvard who served several terms in the Connecticut House of Representatives before being elected as a representative of that state to the U.S. House of Representatives, serving in Congress from 1793 to 1798. A major rarity in American Bibles and American printing. DARLOW & MOULE 928. SABIN 5165. EVANS 17101, 17473. HILDEBURN 4126, 4184. NAIP w004490. HILLS 11. O'CALLAHAN, p.31.

Information on the trade of the VOC in the East Indies is given. 'Batavia, capital city of the Netherlands Indies, site of a VOC post from 1610, and founded in 1619 by J.P. Coen, as regional headquarters for the Dutch East Indies Company, on the site of the Banten port of Jayakarta. It was first constructed as a Dutch city, complete with canals and walls to resist attack from Mataram, and much of the surrounding countryside was cleared of its inhabitants to create a kind of cordon sanitaire around the city. Batavia became a major center of settlement by Chinese, who lived within the city under their own laws. Tension between the Dutch and the Chinese led to a massacre of Chinese in 1740. The social composition of the city was also influenced by a large slave community, much of it Balinese in origin, who formed the basis for a constantly evolving mestizo culture in the city (Cribb, Historical dictionary of Indonesia, p.49-50). In fact five of the fine plates are made after drawings by Johannnes Rach (Het gouvernement te Batavia, de Markt te Batavia, De Diestpoort te Batavia, 't Kasteel te Batavia and a view depicting the harbour of Batavia). Including the large plan of Batavia drawn by order of governor-general P.A. van der Parra by A. van Krevelt. - Some marginal waterstaining otherwise fine.Tiele 77; Landwehr, VOC, 499; Bastin-Brommer N 22; Cat.

        TABLEAU NATUREL DES RAPPORTS QUI EXISTENT ENTRE DIEU, L'HOMME ET L'UNIVERS. A Edimbourg (ma Lione), 1782.

      Prima edizione. Opera completa in due volumi. Testo francese. Cm.20x11,7. Pg.276; 246. Legature in mz.pergamena con piatti marmorizzati. Opera articolata in 22 capitoli, corrispondenti ai 22 arcani. Louis - Claude de Saint Martin (Amboise, 1743 - 1803), meglio conosciuto come il ?filosofo incognito? (?le philosophe inconnu?) frequentò la facoltà di giurisprudenza a Parigi tra il 1759 e il 1762, divenendo avvocato del Re al seggio presidenziale di Tours, ma dopo solamente sei mesi si dedicò alla carriera militare. Nel 1769 conobbe il suo maestro ed iniziatore, il nobile Jacques de Livron de la Tour de la Case Martines de Pasqually, fondatore del ?martinismo?, insieme al quale elaborò il rituale dei tre gradi azzurri, desunto dai tre gradi della Massoneria Universale, e il rituale del Grande Architetto dell?Universo. Trasferitosi a Lione, quivi pubblicò il suo primo lavoro nel 1775, ?Des Erreurs et de la Verité?. Avverso all?ateismo filosofico, e in seguito anche al materialismo rivoluzionario, fu attratto dal problema dell?origine del bene e del male. Partecipò alle operazioni teurgiche di Rosacroce, rifiutò di aderire al Convento dei Filaleti, e quindi si trasferì a Parigi, dove scrisse il presente ?Tableau naturel des rapports que existent entre Dieu, l?Homme et l?Univers?, in cui ribadisce i principi del martinismo. ?In quest?opera egli postula nell?uomo l?esistenza di facoltà superiori a quelle puramente sensoriali. L?uomo dipende sì dal mondo fisico da cui elabora le idee determinate dall?impressione esercitata sui suoi sensi, ma nello stesso tempo conserva in sé idee di legge, di ordine, di unità e di giustizia; la sua vita interiore ed esteriore si forma sia dalle sue idee intellettuali ed archetipe, sia dalle idee elaborate attraverso l?esperienza sensibile. La sua dipendenza da queste ultime è stata causata da un disordine inferiore che si è opposto ad una legge superiore, determinandone la caduta. Il suo principio superiore si è così ?sensibilizzato? e sono apparsi gli effetti dell?ordine e del disordine, del bene e del male, che non sarebbero certamente apparsi se l?uomo si fosse uniformato all?ordine dato da Dio. Ma poiché tutto tende a ritornare all?Unità che tutto ha emanato, l?uomo con il suo desiderio può reintegrarsi nell?unità primitiva attraverso il sacrificio del Riparatore? (Pietro Turchetti).

Il sacerdote gesuita Leonardo Giovanni Michele Ximenes, matematico, insegnante, astronomo, geografo, soprattutto idraulico (oggi si direbbe ingegnere) nacque a Trapani il 27 Dicembre 1716 e morì a Firenze il 3 Maggio 1786. Visse e operò a lungo in Toscana, ove, dopo essersi dedicato all'insegnamento di retorica e letteratura e dopo aver conseguito la laurea di geografo e matematico, svolse intensa e meritoria opera di costruzione di strade, ponti, canali e principalmente di bonifica.
