        OPERE TEATRALI DEL SIGNOR AVVOCATO CARLO GOLDONI VENEZIANO CON RAMI ALLUSIVI

      Venezia, dalle stampe di Antonio Zatta e figli, 1788-1795. In-16 gr. (mm. 185x130), 47 voll. di cui 3 di ?"Memorie?", cartoncino edit. (44 dorsi anticamente rifatti, i 3 delle ?"Memorie?" con picc. manc.). Ciascun vol. è di ca. 400 pp.; tutti i frontespizi sono arricchiti da suggestive vignette e l'opera è illustrata nel t. da ca. 400 bellissime vignette di P.A. Novelli, inc. in rame da Zuliani, Dell'Acqua, Alessandri, De Pian, Zatta, Bonato, Daniotto, Scattaglia. Manca il ritratto del Goldoni inciso da Pitteri, da disegno del Piazzetta- Questa pregevole edizione di opere teatrali edite ed inedite, è suddivisa in quattro classi: ?"Commedie in prosa?" (10 volumi) - ?"Commedie buffe in prosa?" (12 volumi) - ?"Commedie e tragedie in versi?" (12 volumi) - ?"Drammi giocosi?" (10 volumi). I 3 voll. che contengono le ?""Memorie" scritte da lui medesimo?", portano la data 1788 e contengono un ritratto dell?'A. inc. in rame da Daniotto. Precisiamo inoltre che nel vol. XXVII le ultime pagg., 65-80, relative agli atti IV e V della commedia ?"Le Morbidose?", non sono state editorialmente inserite. Nel ns. esemplare solo un vol. con alone al marg. bianco super., altrim. è tutto ben conservato. Cfr. Morazzoni, p. 234 e 143-44: "Contemporaneamente al "Parnaso Italiano" lo Zatta lancia le commedie di Carlo Goldoni e la nuova edizione può considerarsi frutto prelibato della sua probità editoriale. Goldoni non chiede 'decorazioni preziose' e lo Zatta ha trovato 'rami allusivi' che nella loro casalinga semplicità devono esser riusciti graditissimi anche all'autore che vedeva le sue ormai divulgatissime commedie commentate, nel modo più chiaro ed esatto, da minuscole vignette poste a capo di ogni atto. Lo Zatta è ricorso a Pietro Antonio Novelli per l'invenzione, tradotta con diligente cura da uno stuolo di incisori. La doviziosa serie dei piccoli rametti ci interessano infinitamente proprio come rievocazione della vita vissuta dalla modesta borghesia veneziana. Come interpretazione dello spirito goldoniano crediamo che l'edizione zattiana sia più vicina allo spirito di Goldoni di quella del Pasquali, le cui tavole elegantissime non starebbero male in un volume di Marivaud. Una particolare considerazione in questa edizione merita il primo volume delle "Memorie", per il gioviale ritratto del commediografo, che ci si presenta paternamente sorridente: questo, dopo i due famosi ritratti del Pitteri, è senza alcun dubbio uno dei più espressivi del Goldoni, e riteniamo pure ch'esso abbia anche il pregio della somiglianza, perchè certamente il Damiotto l'avrà inciso dopo l'approvazione del grande commediografo".

        An Historical Sketch of Prerogative and Influence in a Letter to a Friend

      G. G. J. and J. Robinson. LEATHER BOUND. B00LDTKF16 1788 first edition G. G. J. and J. Robinson (London), 3 7/8 x 6 1/4 inches tall red full leather bound, gilt-lettered black leather label to spine, marbled endpapers and page edges, [4], 137 pp. Newly rebound in crimson Morocco. Apart from moderate foxing to the half title and very mild occasional foxing within, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of a rare 1788 commentary on British royal prerogative, then one of the central features of Great Britain's governance, published at a time when the debate over ratification of the US Constitution was in full swing, with a great deal of focus on which powers were given to the federal government and which were reserved to the citizenry. For example, in his fiery June 1788 oration to Virginia's ratifying convention, Patrick Henry cited the concept of royal prerogative in Europe in railing against the 'absurdity' of not including a Bill of Rights with the Constitution. In Great Britain, a 'country which is said to be in such full possession of freedom,' Patrick said, 'all rights not expressly and unequivocally reserved to the people, are impliedly and incidentally relinquished to rulers, as necessarily inseparable from the delegated powers.' There were numerous favorable reviews of this work in 1788 publications - e.g., The Monthly Review (R. Griffiths: London), Vol. 79, p. 374; The Analytical Review (J. Johnson: London), Vol. 2, p. 81; and The Scotts Magazine (Murray and Cochrane: Edinburgh), Vol 50, p. 555 - yet the book is quite rare, with no copies listed worldwide by OCLC or Copac. Especially unusual for a publication of this period, even the English Short Title Catalog carries no listings, and American Book Prices Current records no appearance of the title at auction in the last quarter-century. ~YYY~ . Very Good. 1788. First Edition.

      Madrid, Joaquín Ibarra, 1783-1788 - Fol. mayor (35,4 x 25,6 cm). 4 vols. Plena piel de época, hilo dorado en planos, lomos con nervios, hierros dorados en los entrenervios y doble tejuelo –rojo y verde–, algo dañada en los cantos. Precioso ejemplar de la segunda edición, más apreciada que la primera. Nicolás Antonio está considerado el iniciador de la bibliografía española moderna. Sus obras capitales como bibliógrafo fueron la Bibliotheca hispana nova, publicada en 1672 con el título Bibliotheca hispana sive hispanorum, y la Bibliotheca hispana vetus (póstuma, impresa en 1696). La Bibliotheca hispana consta de dos partes; la segunda, Bibliotheca hispana nova, apareció en Roma en 1672 en dos volúmenes, abarcando todos los autores españoles desde 1500 a 1672, y fue reeditada en Madrid entre 1783 y 1788, con cambios, por el ilustrado Francisco Pérez Bayer a iniciativa del director de la Biblioteca Real de Madrid, Juan de Santander, que incorporó al primer texto impreso numerosas adiciones y correcciones que el autor le hizo en los últimos años de su vida; está escrita en latín y dispuesta en forma de diccionario, así como acompañada de varios índices que facilitan su manejo. La edición de Joaquín Ibarra de la Bibliotheca puede tenerse como uno de los mejores impresos españoles del siglo XVIII, no solo por sus discretas ilustraciones sino por el cuidado tipográfico. El diseño, grabado y fundición de los tipos se realizó en el obrador de la Biblioteca Real con letrerías creadas expresamente para sus ediciones, que comprenden caracteres arábigos, hebreos, griegos y latinos realizados por Gerónimo Antonio Gil.

        LE PRÉFET APOSTOLIQUE, AUX COLONS DE L'ISLE DE FRANCE [caption title]

      Isle de France: Imprimerie Royale, 1788.. Broadsheet, 12 3/4 x 8 inches. Folio. Moderate wear and soiling, small hole in center of sheet, affecting a few letters of text. Good. Early and unrecorded imprint from the colonial press at the French colony of Mauritius, also known as the Ile de France. The text contains the articles for establishing a Bureau de Charité for the island. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. Printing began on Mauritius in 1768. During the French period, until 1810, only about 400 imprints were produced, mostly in the form of official documents and newspapers, though there are also almanacs and a few other items. All are quite rare. No copies located in OCLC, and not recorded by Toussaint in his bibliography of Mauritius imprints.

Routh, one dated June 21, 1788 and the other 1788 have been used as wrappers. In both cases most but not all of the text is legible. A very good copy. MH-BA only in ESTC on-line. The "Advertisement" is dated Bristol, August 3, 1788. "The three late Bristol acts, are so very important in their consequences .that the following abstract is published with the sole view of rendering them as generally and expediously known as possible. The words of the legislature are no where changed; and the abridgment is so very comprehensive, that the technical phraseology of the profession and repetitions of the same words are the chief things curtailed, which it is hoped will be considered rather an advantage than otherwise, as by this means, common understandings are not so liable to be confounded by tautology and terms of law." The police acts cover a wide range of subjects from obstructions, annoyances, nuisances, licensing hackney coaches, shipping, quays, street widening, party-wall regulations and fire prevention.

        LE PRÉFET APOSTOLIQUE, AUX COLONS DE L'ISLE DE FRANCE [caption title].

      Isle de France: Imprimerie Royale, 1788. - Broadsheet, 12 3/4 x 8 inches. Folio. Moderate wear and soiling, small hole in center of sheet, affecting a few letters of text. Good. Early and unrecorded imprint from the colonial press at the French colony of Mauritius, also known as the Ile de France. The text contains the articles for establishing a Bureau de Charité for the island. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. Printing began on Mauritius in 1768. During the French period, until 1810, only about 400 imprints were produced, mostly in the form of official documents and newspapers, though there are also almanacs and a few other items. All are quite rare. No copies located in OCLC, and not recorded by Toussaint in his bibliography of Mauritius imprints.

        A View near Scheveling painted by DeVlieger

      Published by Molteno & Co. No. 132, Pall Mall, London 1788 - Etching and aquatint with hand-colour. Lovely contemporary colour. As usual text line is attached on verso of sheet. In excellent condition. Trimmed as usual and mounted on washline background. Mounting sheet is watermarked laid paper. Image size: 14 7/16 x 20 5/8 inches. A charming seaside view by Samuel Ireland, the engraver and collector connected with the infamous Shakespeare forgeries. Ireland was a minor engraver and publisher who worked in London at the close of the eighteenth century. He was an avid art and manuscript collector, and many of the works that he engraved and published were after pieces found in his own collection. This romantic view is after a painting by DeVlieger, which was in Ireland's collection at the time. This image operates as both an example of the picturesque tradition in eighteenth century landscape prints, and as an advertisement and promotion of Ireland's celebrated collection. With this image Ireland presents himself as both a serious engraver and a respected collector. Unfortunately, today Ireland is better remembered for his involvement in the Shakespeare forgeries than for his evocative prints. Over a period of many years Ireland's son, William Henry, sold his father a series of forged manuscripts, which he claimed to be written in Shakespeare's hand. Ireland, who willingly trusted his son, added these forgeries to his collection and presented them in an exhibition to the literary community, who accepted them as genuine. The charade progressed so far that an invented play entitled 'Vortigern', which William Henry had written and presented as a missing work by Shakespeare, was performed at Sheridan's Drury Lane theatre by some of the leading actors of the age. When the hoax was eventually discovered Ireland's reputation was ruined, and his son was disgraced. This print is from the famed Oettingen-Wallerstein collection, which was compiled over two centuries by various members of the royal household. The collection is known for its stunning impressions and the immaculate condition of its prints. Dictionary of National Biography ; Lugt, Les Marques de Collections , (Supplement) 2715a.

      1788. first edition. First Edition of the “Critique of Practical Reason”KANT, Immanuel. Critik der practischen Vernunft. Riga: Bey Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1788.First edition of Kant’s second Critiques, begun with his Critik der reinen Vernunft (“Critique of Pure Reason”) in 1781. Octavo (7 7/8 x 4 5/8 inches; 200 x 118 mm.). 292 pp.Contemporary paper over boards. Edges stained red. Top 1 1/2 inches cut from front free-endpaper. Occasional neat pencil underlining throughout and a few very minor, mainly marginal stains. Otherwise a fine copy.“Kant’s concept of the ‘categorical imperative’—the foundation of modern ethics—stems from the second of his three Critiques. The term ‘categorical imperative’ refers to an unconditional or absolute moral law, the validity of which does not depend on the ends achieved by its application. According to Kant, there was only one such law, which he formulated variously; one of his formulations was: ‘Act only on such a maxim as you can will that it should become a universal law.’ The Critique of practical reason is the primary source for Kant’s ethical doctrines and also for his views on the function of practical or moral reason in the attainment of knowledge” (Norman Library).Adickes 67.

Ejemplar con rastros marginales de humedad en el tomo cuarto. Primera edición. Encuadernación de época en piel marbreada, con lomeras ornadas. - La recepción española del «Bildungsroman», la novela sobre la educación, caracterizada por una inflación del discurso, de las ideas y hasta de la propia tesis sustentada. En el caso del «Eusebio», en la línea del «Emilio» de Rousseau, obra del jóven novicio alicantino jesuíta expulso, residente en Ferrara, donde se secularizó en 1769, se trata de uno de los grandes éxitos de venta —se llegaron a vender 70.000 ejemplares— y de lectura en la España de finales del Siglo XVIII, debido en buena parte a sus problemas con la Inquisición que acabaría prohibiendo la obra en 1799. Volvió a España en 1800 y volvió a ser expulsado en 1801, para acabar sus dias en Italia. Una azarosa existencia a caballo de la utopía, a la búsqueda de una sociedad justa, fraternal y solidaria donde se integrasen la felicidad del individuo y la de la república.

London, for T.Cadell, 1788. Berkenhout (1730?-1791) was born in Leeds, Yorkshire, of Dutch parents. He studied medicine at Edinburgh and Leyden after serving for a while in the Prussian army. Later, after qualifying, he was sent by the government, as one of a group of commissioners, to America, but they were not allowed to proceed beyond New York. However, Berkenhout defied the ban and reached Philadelphia where, for a short time, he was imprisoned. He was the author of a range of works in medicine, literature, natural history and politics. The present work is ?an extensive textbook of chemistry utilizing the Phlogiston theory. The author gives a short list of the beliefs of the antiphlogistians and dismisses their principles with ?It was born in France, and there let it die.? (Cole) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        LE MANUEL DE XEFOLIUS.

      s.n.,, Au Grand Orient (Parigi), 1788 - Volume in 8°, legatura coeva in mezza pelle con unghie, titolo al tassello al dorso ornato da filetti in oro, tagli spruzzati, sguardie, frontespizio, prefazione, IV, 331, (3) pp. comprensive di errata. Edizione originale, di estrema rarità, impressa in forma anonima e senza dati tipografici, al dire del Caillet stampata a cura del Grande Oriente di Francia in soli 60 esemplari che non furono destinati al commercio, ma riservati esclusivamente agli amici dell'autore (stando ad altri bibliografi la tiratura sarebbe stata di 100 esemplari). Il volume, attribuito correntemente a Felix Von Wimpfen (1745-1814), e' una singolare trattazione massonico - esoterica fortemente influenzata dalla teosofia e condita di riflessioni filosofiche sulla "harmonie du Grand Tout", con copiosi riferimenti alle ideologie di eguaglianza e di fratellanza di cui il credo massonico era imbevuto. Il volume conobbe solo altre due edizioni successive, una nel 1862, presso Hachette, a distanza di quasi un secolo da questa rarissima prima edizione, e l'altra nel 1997 con un'introduzione di Charles Porset negli "Acta Latomorum" delle parigine edizioni Libris. Felix von Wimpfen-Bornebourg (nato nel 1745), teosofo e massone, come ufficiale militare fu in servizio in Corsica e negli Stati Uniti e prese parte agli assedi di Mahon e di Gibilterra. Deputato della nobilta' agli Stati Generali, partecipo' alla pubblicazione del famoso "Livre Rouge", sfuggito alla ghigliottina nel periodo del Terrore, ritrovo' sotto l'Impero Napoleonico, il proprio rango di ufficiale dell'esercito, ed ivi rimase sino alla morte avvenuta nel 1814. Esemplare perfetto, fior di stampa, impresso a grandi margini su carta vergata, bianca e croccante. Eccellente in importanza e rarità.
