        Collection de vues des prinéipaux [recté principaux] palais, eglises, bâtimens publies, campagnes & jardins tant de Vienne que de ses environs. | Ansichten Sam[m]lung der berühmtesten Palläste, Gebäude, und der schönsten Gegenden von und um Wien.Vienna, Maria Geissler, [1812]. Large oblong 16m? (11 x 13.5 cm). With an engraved title-page and 64 (of a possible 100) engraved plates numbered 1-56, 58-61, and odd numbers 63-73 (including 2 folding plates with 2 numbers each, 21/22 and 23/24). Hand-coloured in watercolour by a contemporary hand. Contemporary half sheepskin, gold-tooled spine.

      - Bobins 1037; KVK & WorldCat (8 copies, incl. at least 2 with less than 100 pl.); Nebehay & Wagner 193; not in Abbey, Travel. A series of charming views of Vienna and its environs in the middle of Beethoven's thirty-five years there, around the time Wagner was born there, and about eight years after it became the capital of the new Austrian Empire, including views of Baden, Klosterneuburg, Bratislava and other neighbouring sites, all attractively and artistically coloured by a contemporary hand. It shows palaces, castles and ruins, churches, chapels and the Vienna cathedral, gardens and pavilions, city streets and squares, the spa at Baden, Christoph de Bach's Circus Gymnasticus, the lavish Apollo Saal, views along the Danube and more. The famous streets, squares, buildings and interiors appear bustling with fashionable ladies and gentlemen, pedestrians and horse-drawn carriages, and the river full of boats. Four views are signed by the artist, Josef Eisner (1788-1861), and about a third by the engraver, mostly Johann Jaresch (but two by Johann Boehm (ca. 1770-post 1821), probably as engraver). All plates are captioned in French and German, and numbered in the centre.With early owner's name. Although this book can have 100 plates, there is no evidence that any have been removed and none is numbered higher than 73. The present copy may therefore have been issued before the series was complete. The fact that most plates are still in their first states supports that suggestion. With a small stain affecting a couple letters on the title-page, an occasional lighter spot in some of the plates, and part of 1 letter shaved in one caption, but still in good condition. The binding is slightly worn, but is also still good. Lovely coloured views of Vienna when it was the musical and in many ways the cultural capital of Europe.

        Lezioni di commercio o sia d'economia civile dell'Ab. Antonio Genovesi regio cattedratico di Napoli. Edizione novissima accresciuta di varie aggiunte dell'Autore medesimo.

      A spese Remondini di Venezia, 1788. Due parti in un volume in 8° (mm 110x180), pp. 355, (1 bianca) + pp. 260. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle, dorso con fregi, filetti, tassello e titolo in oro. Taglio picchiettato. Minimi danni agli angoli, leggero alone nel margine inferiore di tutto il volume, per il resto ottima copia. Ristampa dell'edizione Remondini del 1769 delle celebri Lezioni del Genovesi (primo professore di economia politica in Italia), che ebbero un enorme successo e furono più volte ristampate. ll His Lezioni di economia civile (1765) may be described as an unsystematic system of the whole range of his economic thought. These lectures do indeed display the influence of contemporaneous and earlier writers and, what is worse, the argument frequently lacks rigor. But nobody had, when they appeared, published as comprehensive a presentation of the utilitarian welfare economics that the epoch was evolving. The mercantilist elements in Genovesi's teaching only prove the realism of his vision'gg (Schumpeter, History of economic analysis, p. 177). Biblioteca Einaudi, A.313. Kress Italian, 569.

        Zoologia Danica seu Animalium Daniae et Norvegiae rariorum ac minus notorum Descriptiones et Historia. Volumen I-IV. (Auctore O.F. Müller. - Vol. III: P.C. Abildgaard - IV: P.C. Abildgaard, M. Vahl, J.S. Holten, J. Rathke).

      Havniae (København), N. Möller (et Filii) og N. Christensen, 1788-1806. Folio. Indbundet i 2 samtidige hldrbd. (vol. 1-4) med enkelt stregforgyldning på ryg. Titeletiket i skind med forgyldning. Lille rift i øverste del af ene fals på første bind. Marmoreret sidepapir. Hjørner lidt stødte. Rygge med lettere brugsspor. 4 kobberstukne titelvignetter. (2),VI,52;(4),56;(4),71,(1);(6),46 pp. samt 160 kobberstukne plancher (komplet). Såvel plancher som tekst er trykt på svært skrivepapir og er i særdeles god stand, dog har vol. II på de første tekstsider lidt brunpletter i marginen. Enkelte plancher med mindre svage brunpletter i marginer. Ud over de 160 plancher i sort/hvid som udgivet, forefindes et usædvanligt "tillægsbind" som indeholder de første 120 plancher (I-CXX) af værket, svarende til plancherne i vol. I-III, i smuk ORIGINAL HÅNDKOLORERING og ydermere har bindet tilhørt vor berømte zoolog OTTO FABRICIUS (internationalt kendt for "Fauna Groenlandica" (1780)). Fabricius har i håndskrift på alle plancher tilført art-og figurbeskrivelser på foden af planchen, men udenfor trykket. Dette fremgår af et håndskrevet notat på fribladet "De her anførte skrevne benævnelser ere tilföiede af Zoologen professor Otto Fabricius, paa hvis Auktion dette værk er kiöbt af H.B. Melcior." Melchior var lærer på Herlufsholm og grundlagde skolens naturhistoriske samlinger. På fribladet stempel fra Herlufsholms Bibliotek. Denne samling er indbundet i et samtidigt hellæderbind i flammet kalv med rig rygforgyldning. Små huller i permer. Bindet med nogle brugsspor, plancherne i frisk stand. Komplet eksemplar (det udkomne) af dette yderst sjældne værk, højdepunktet i dansk zoologisk litteratur i 1700-tallet, tænkt som et sidestykke til Flora Danica, men aldrig fuldendt. Her foreligger værket med den latinske tekst og alle udgivne plancher. Udgivelsen begyndte allerede i 1777 hvor Müller udgav plancherne separat, uden tekst, til de to første bind. Udgivelseshistorien er kompliceret, men grundigt beskrevet i Jean Ankers monografi over værket (1950). Værket beskriver den marine fauna i Danmark og Norge, og efter Ankers opfattelse er værket et grundlæggende værk i marinbiologi. Mülleer var en af de første til at bruge bundskraber i stor stil - "Müller must therefore be regarded as one of the real pioneers in marine biology" (Anker). Der findes iøvrigt kun ganske få eksemplarer af værket hvor alle plancher foreligger i håndkoloreret stand. I det foreliggende forefindes alle udgivne plancher i sort/hvid og yderligere planche 1-120 i original håndkoloreret stand.Bibl. Danica II,168. - Jean Anker "Otto Friderich Müller's Zoologia Danica" (1950) - Nissen ZBI,2932.- Gosch, Afd. III, pp. 176-80.

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD, IN THE YEARS 1785, 1786, 1787, AND 1788.

      - Published conformably to the decree of the national assembly, of the 22d of April, 1791, and edited by M. L. A. Milet-Mureau. In three volumes [text], plus a volume of plates and charts. Translated from the French. Pp. xii+532+x+498+viii+446+60(tables), 42 engraved plates & charts (8 folding); text volumes octavo, the plates volume oblong 4to; all early tree calf, spines decorated in gilt compartments with contrasting gilt lettered red & black title and volume labels, corners of boards lightly worn, spines slightly chipped at extremities (heaviest at head of Volume I), joints tender, the plates volume slightly scuffed; armorial bookplate on upper pastedowns, minor production (trimming) fault to bottom fore-corner pp. 15/16 Volume II, a couple of leaves creased, a few small edge chips or splits (a couple of which have been neatly repaired), a little light foxing, browning, and occasional slight soiling; J. Johnson, London, 1798. First edition in English? Ferguson 270; Hill, 974; Mclaren, \i Laperouse in the Pacific , 4. *The official account of the ill-fated voyage, originally published in French in 1797 in 4 quarto volumes plus a folio atlas. Two different translations into English quickly followed, both in 1798: the present edition published by Johnson, and one published by Stockdale. Forbes (\i Hawaiian National Bibliography , 287) suggests the Johnson edition was probably the earlier of these. The expedition led by La Perouse was one of the most important voyages of the eighteenth century, and was intended as the French equivalent of the explorations of Captain Cook. From the northwest coast of North America, La Perouse sailed across the Pacific, discovering uncharted islands, and visiting Macao, Manila and Korea. In September 1787 he replenished supplies at Kamchatka, and from there de Lesseps was sent overland to Paris, via Siberia, with details of the discoveries to date, plus the Spanish account of voyages by Francisco Antonio Mourelle, which La Perouse had apparently acquired in Asia. La Perouse sailed on to Norfolk Island, then to Botany Bay in January 1788, just after Governor Phillip had arrived with the First Fleet. He left a few weeks later, on March 10, and disappeared without trace. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"Some of the tribes of Indians, in the back parts of America, eat the serpents which they happen to kill in their hunting parties; such as the horned, the rattle, and the mukasoe snakes. [...] This curious circumstance I often had related to me by many of the sage farmers of North America, when I was in that part of the world; some of them of a very philosophic turn of mind: but it is very ingeniously related to me of late by a gentleman of strict honour and integrity, a native of North Carolina, who being a staunch loyalist, forsook an ample fortune in that country to support the royal cause. The following instance he has related to me among many. That he was once present, when a rattle sake, about three feet and half in length, had bit a horse as he was feeding in a meadow which had been mowed. The snake being observed by some workmen, was instantly surrounded by them, who, with long sticks, confined the animal to a small spot of ground in the same meadow. He several times attempted to direct his course to thick cover but care was taken to prevent him, till upwards o two hours was elapsed [...] " - pages 72-73. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .

        [?Piramo e Tisbe]. Rondò Nel Lasciarti Amato Bene. Musical manuscript full score. Italian. Ca. 1788

      Oblong folio (320 x 230 mm.). Sewn. [i] (title), 41, [ii] (blank), 4 pp. Notated in ink on 10-stave paper. Ascription: "Der Sig:r Mae:o Angelo Tarchi." Header to title in copyist's hand: "In Pisa nel Primavera dell'Anno 1788 Cantato dall'Celebre Sig:r Pietro Muschietti." "Po I No. 11 [?14]" to lower left corner of title. Various watermarks (three crescents, etc.). Aria of Piramo (soprano castrato). Ten-stave system. Scored for [2] Violini, [2] Oboe, [2] Corni [in F], [2] Viole, voice, unfigured instrumental bass. In F major. A second text underlay has been added in a different hand to several passages (written below the instrumental bass). Incipit: "Ho perduto Ogni mio bene..." Final four pages (one bifolium of different paper; watermark of three crescents) notated in a different hand; apparently added later. Note to upper left corner of first extra page: "Rec:vo antecedente a questo che siegue dovrà posare i in alamire terza min:e, a in elami con sesta e terza min:e." Five-stave systems; scored for [2] Violins, Viola, voice [Piramo?], and unfigured instrumental bass. Recitative modulates from D minor to B-flat major. Text incipit: Eh mio Signore Ciò[?] possibil non è Troppo son gravi Le angustie del mio cor. It is not clear whether this recitative belongs to the same work as the aria; there is no trace of the "recitativo antecedente." Spine and edges of some leaves frayed. An enigmatic item. RISM lists no piece with the same music but several with the same text - arias from Giovanni Battista Borghi's Piramo e Tisbe (libretto by Gaetano Sertor), Filippo Maria Gherardeschi's Artaserse, Giuseppe Giordani's L'Acomate, Nicola Zingarelli's La morte de Cesare, etc. The identification of the character as "Piramo" in the present manuscript points to an opera on the subject of Pyramus and Thisbe, using the same libretto as Borghi's; Tarchi, however, has never been credited with such an opera. In addition, Gino dell'Ira's I teatri di Pisa 1773-1986, which chronicles all operatic performances in the city, mentions neither Tarchi nor any opera on the subject of Pyramus and Thisbe; likewise, the singer Pietro Muschietti is not mentioned. The ascription and note on the Pisa performance to the title of the present manuscript are thus somewhat puzzling. The unusual division of the violas might offer a clue to the authorship of the work upon further research.

        Novus Prospectus Geographicus cursuum publicorum aliorumque itinerum per Germaniam adusque Bataviam

      Venezia 1788 - SCONOSCIUTA CARTA DELLA GERMANIA Carta geografica in 6 fogli (ognuno misura mm. 430x272) stampata a Venezia presso la tipografia di tale Francesco Orlandini, il cui nome appare nel cartiglio con il titolo, nel 1788. La carta è invece incisa dai fratelli Gaetano e Valentino Orlandini. Sappiamo che sono fratelli dalla firma in questa carta "Gaijetanus et Valentinus Fratres Orlandini Sculpserunt, Scripseruntque". Nessuna notizia su Francesco Oralndini siamo stati in grado di reperire, mentre Gaetano e Valentino sono citati in Cartografi Veneti di V. Valerio, noti come incisori della mappa dell'Italia, sempre in 6 fogli, del 1786. Nella stessa pubblicazione stranamente non è citato Francesco Orlandini, editore sia di questa mappa che della carta dell'Italia. Ipotizziamo che si tratti del padre dei due incisori. L'opera, sconosciuta a tutti i repertori, è incisa nel cllassico stile veneziano del perodo. Il cartiglio è molto simile a quelli dell'atlante di Antonio Zatta. La carta dell'Italia di Orlandini è nota in un solo esemplare alla Biblioteca Comunale di Verona, mentre questa della Germania è assolutamente sconosciuta. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, 6 fogli in barbe da unire, in ottimo stato di conservazione. UNKNOWN MAP OF GERMANY Map on 6 sheets (each measure mm. 430x272) printed in Venice by Francesco Orlandini, whose name appears in the cartouche with the title, in 1788. The map is iengraved by brothers Gaetano and Valentino Orlandini. We know that they are brothers by signing this map "Gaijetanus Sculpserunt Orlandini et Fratres Valentinus, Scripseruntque". No news about Francesco Oralndini we were able to rfind, while Gaetano and Valentino are cited in Cartografi Veneti by V. Valerio, known as map carvers of the map of Italy, always in 6 sheets, printed in 1786 by the same Francesco Orlandini. In the same publication, strangely, is not mentioned Francesco Orlandini. We hypothesize that Francesco is the father of the two engravers. The work, unknown to all repertoires, is etched into the classic Venetian styleof the time. The cartouche is very similar to those of the atlas by Antonio Zatta. The map of Italy by Orlandini is known in a single copy at the Central Library of Verona, while the map of Germany is absolutely unknown.

      Napoli 1788 - Grande carta geografica della Calabria, in 6 fogli, tratta dal famoso "Atlante Geografico del Regno di Napoli" grandioso lavoro in 32 fogli realizzato dal Rizzi Zannoni in un trentennio e completato nel 1812, due anni prima della sua morte. Incisa da Giuseppe Guerra nel 1794. Rizzi Zannoni è considerato come il più importante cartografo italiano dai tempi di Giovanni Antonio Magini. Attivo in Francia , a Padova e soprattutto a Napoli (1781/1814), dove, nel periodo borbonico, poté fregiarsi anche del titolo di "geografo del Re". Con la venuta dei francesi, Rizzi Zannoni continuò ad attendere alla realizzazione delle carte del Regno. Nel 1807, fu posto a capo del Deposito topografico, istituito da Giuseppe Bonaparte; nel 1812, sotto il regno di Gioacchino Murat, riuscì a stampare l'ultimo dei 31 fogli dell'atlante geografico, la cui pubblicazione era iniziata nel 1788. Le opere realizzate a Napoli, in oltre trenta anni di attività, lo consacrarono come il maggiore cartografo italiano dell'età moderna ed uno dei più accreditati in Europa. Incisione in rame, carta leggermente brunita e leggera gora d'acqua nel margine inferiore, piccoli fori di tarlo, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. I.

        La Turchia Europea divisa nelle sue provincie

      Siena 1788 - Carta tratta dalla rara raccolta di carte geografiche denominata Atlante Geografico, prima stesura delle opera dell’abate Bartolomeo Borghi, pubblicata in Siena dal Pazzini Carli. Molte delle carte, datate tra il 1788 ed il 1800, sono incise da Agostino Costa e poi successivamente inserite nell’opera Atlante generale dell'ab. Bartolommeo Borghi, pubblicato a Firenze nel 1819. Bartolomeo Borghi, che Vermiglioli (Biografia degli scrittori perugini, 1829) definisce "uno dei migliori geografi dell'Europa", nacque nel 1750 a Monte del Lago, piccola frazione del comune di Magione, in provincia di Perugia, sulle rive del Trasimeno. Ordinato sacerdote nel 1774, trascorse i primi anni del suo mandato nel paese natale, poi a Magione e quindi a Sorbello (Cortona). Appassionato studioso di geografia, applicò dapprima le sue conoscenze all'analisi delle terre a lui più familiari: nel 1770 scrisse Descrizione geografica, fisica e naturale del Lago Trasimeno (che sarà tuttavia data alle stampe per la prima volta solo nel 1821), e nel 1791 pubblicò negli atti dell'Accademia etrusca di Cortona una Dissertazione sopra l'antica geografia dell'Etruria, Umbria e Piceno, arricchendo entrambe le opere di una carta delle regioni descritte. Intanto la sua fama di cartografo, oltre che di geografo, cresceva, tanto da fargli ottenere le nomine a membro delle Accademie Cortonese e Reale di Firenze, e procurargli l'incarico, da parte di Pietro Leopoldo, di delineare la carta del catasto pubblico di Cortona e del contado di Castiglione. Nello stesso tempo gli orizzonti geografici della sua attività si allargavano sensibilmente, e se nell'Atlante Novissimo, illustrato ed accresciuto sulle osservazioni, e scoperte fatte dai più celebri e più recenti cartografi di Antonio Zatta (Venezia 1779-1785) il suo contributo fu ancora legato all'area toscana, nell'Atlante geografico che si pubblicò a Siena da Pazzini Carli tra il 1798 ed il 1800 il Borghi tracciò la maggior parte delle carte e spaziò dalle province del Sud-Est dell'Inghilterra, al Regno di Danimarca, alla Romania. Una sorta di prova generale, quest'ultima, della sua opera più importante, quell'Atlante generale dell'ab. Bartolommeo Borghi, pubblicato a Firenze nel 1819. L'Atlante, corredato da brevi descrizioni storiche, politiche, civili e naturali che introducono le carte relative ai territori afferenti a ciascun Impero o Regno illustrato, rispecchia il nuovo assetto geo-politico attuato dal Congresso di Vienna. Map taken form the very rare Atlante Geografico, the first draft of the abbot Bartolomeo Borghi, published in Siena by Pazzini Carli. Many of the mapss, dated between 1788 and 1800, are engraved by Agostino Costa and then later incorporated in the work of AB Atlante Generale di Bartolomeo Borghi, published in Florence in 1819. Bartolomeo Borghi, who Vermiglioli (Biography of writers Perugini, 1829) calls "one of the best geographers of Europe", was born in 1750 in Monte del Lago, a small fraction of the town of Mansfield, in the province of Perugia, on the shores of Lake Trasimeno. Ordained in 1774, spent the first years of his term in his hometown, then to Mansfield and then Sorbello (Cortona). A passionate student of geography, first applied his knowledge to the analysis of land more familiar to him: he wrote in 1770 Description geographical, physical and natural Lake Trasimeno (which will however be given to the press for the first time only in 1821), and 1791 published in the Proceedings of Etruscan Cortona a dissertation on the geography of ancient Etruria, Umbria and Piceno, enriching both the works of a map of the regions described. Meanwhile, his fame as a cartographer, as well as a geographer, was growing, so that he get the nomination as a member of the Royal Academies of Florence and Cortona, and give him the job, by Pietro Leopoldo, to outline the paper's public land Cortona and the county of Castiglione. At the same time the geographical horizons of its activities widened consider

XII,512 pp. First edition of Lagrange's masterpiece, "which laid the foundation of modern mechanics, and which occupies a place in the history of the subject second only to that of Newton's Principia". (Wolf). In "Méchanique Analytique" Lagrange reformulated classical Newtonian mechanics in a purely analytical manner, whereas Newton derived his results geometrically, or synthetically, with the aid of figures. "Lagrange proposed to reduce the theory of mechanics and the art of solving problems in that field to general formulas, the mere development of which would yield all the equations necessary for the solution of every problem." (DSB). In his preface, Lagrange draws attention to the absence of diagrams in the book, which he believed the lucidity of his own presentation had rendered superfluous.
