        Vite de' più eccellenti pittori scultori e architetti...in questa prima edizione sanese arricchite più che in tutte l'altre precedenti di rami di giunte e di correzioni per opera del P.M. Guglielmo Della Valle.

      Pazzini Carli, 1791 - 94. 11 volumi in 8° (mm 210x135); pagg. 350 circa ogni tomo con complessivi 159 ritratti f.t. in rame, compreso quello a piena pagina del vasari ripiegato, e 3 tavole rip. nel vol. X. Mezza pergamena ottocentesca, di notevole eleganza, con angoli, piatti marmorizzati, dorso a cinque nervi, doppio tassello in marocchino rosso, filetti dorati. Tagli rossi. Non comune sesta edizione di questa celebre opera, fondamento della storia dell'arte, curata dallo storico senese Della Valle. Edizione di particolare interesse per due aspetti: il primo, teorico, più importante: contiene un discorso partigiano sulla difesa dell'arte toscana contro lo stile Barocco che al tempo imperversava prevalentemente a Roma, contiene inoltre una delle prime difese del gusto vasariano dalle critiche post - vasariane come quella di Baldinucci. In secondo luogo questa edizione contiene un nuovo e completo set di incisioni in rame, che sostituiscono le tavole in legno della prima edizione del 1568 (a sua volta copiate nell'edizione di Dozza del 1647). Sebbene non firmate le tavole furono per lo più incise da Giovanni Battista Leonetti su disegni di Giuseppe Cades, che firma il ritratto di Vasari nel I° vol. La critica è redatta, come detto, dallo storico dell'arte Guglielmo Della Valle (1740 - 1794), che in quest'opera mette in risalto il genio italiano; provvede a dettagliate informazioni, su Michelangelo, per esempio, nelle note molto estese, riferisce notizie non reperibili nel 16° secolo; una delle tavole ripiegate mostra un disegno preliminare per la tomba di Giulio II (dalla collezione Mariette). Ottimo esemplare su carta vergellata. Firma di possesso al frontespizio. Churchill, bibliografia Vasariana. Brunet V, 1096; Schlosser Magnino, 334.

        Le Sens commun. Ouvrage adressé aux Américains, et dans lequel on traite de l'origine et de l'objet du gouvernement, de la constitution angloise, de la monarchie héréditaire et de la situation de l'Amérique septentrionale

      Paris, Gueffier, 1791. de 113 pp broché 1791, 1791, in - 12, de 113 pp., broché, Première édition publiée à Paris, et la deuxième en français. La première édition française parue en 1777, fut publiée à Rotterdam. Paine, qui se trouvait à l'époque entre Londres et Paris, a probablement surveillé lui - même l'impression de l'ouvrage avant que l'Assemblée Constituante ne lui donne la citoyenneté française. L'ouvrage devait être réimprimé en France en 1793. Lorsqu'il parut, le livre fut attribué à John Adams. Paine discute les origines et les objectifs du gouvernement anglais et attaque la constitution britannique et l'institution de la monarchie héréditaire. Dans un langage à la portée d'un large public, l'ouvrage plaide pour la supériorité de la loi naturelle sur les codes politiques et la philosophie des droits naturels qui devaient servir de cadre à la Déclaration de l'indépendance des États - Unis d'Amérique. Ayant convenu avec l'imprimeur R. Bell de partager les profits éventuels de l'ouvrage, il envisageait d'affecter sa part du profit à l'acquisition de gants d'hiver pour les troupes de Washington. L'édition de mille exemplaires fut mise en vente le 10 janvier 1776 et fut aussitôt épuisé, l'imprimeur spécifiant qu'il ne restait aucun bénéfice à partager. Paine republia immédiatement le livre, augmenté d'un appendice avec une firme concurrente de Philadelphie, W. et T. Bradford, dont l'édition de 7,000 exemplaires parut le 14 février 1776. Le succès fut extraordinaire ; Paine, qui nia toujours avoir tiré aucun profit de cela, prétendait que 120,000 exemplaires avaient été vendus en trois mois ; ce fut peut être une exagération mais il semble généralement que 56 éditions ont été imprimées et 150,000 exemplaires vendus à la fin de 1776. Il est aussi généralement admis que cette brochure joua un rôle décisif en incitant les colonisés à se diriger vers l'indépendance (cf. A. Aver, Thomas Paine, 1989, p.35). "A Franklin proclamant : 'Où la liberté existe, là est mon pays', Paine répondait : 'Où la liberté n'existe pas, là est le mien'. Autrement dit, Paine était une sorte de croisé de la liberté, un homme qui avait fait de la liberté sa religion. Il se battit en Amérique pour faire triompher la cause de l'indépendance et de la république, en Angleterre pour imposer une représentation plus démocratique, en France pour renverser la monarchie et donner le pouvoir aux citoyens. C'était avant toutes choses un militant des droits de l'homme - et cela à une époque où l'individu, baptisé "sujet" et parfois esclave, n'avait, quant à lui, que les devoirs."

        1852 James Buchanan Autograph Letter Signed

      - James Buchanan (1791-1868) was the 15th President of the United States from 1856-1860. Prior to holding the highest office in the country, he had a long career in politics, serving as Representative and Senator from Pennsylvania, Minister to Russia, Ambassador to Britain, and Secretary of State. Buchanan wrote this attractive Autograph Letter Signed from his home, Wheatland, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in September of 1852. Addressed to Charles H. Sprence, Esq., Buchanan wrote of an intriguing song-and-dance around the sale of Abbeville, a nearby home that had once belonged to Congressman Langdon Cheves from South Carolina. Abbeville and its 73 acres were to be sold at a Sheriff's Sale so there could be a good title for those who had already purchased it as there was some doubt that "Mr. Gonder's estate would prove to be solvent." Buchanan speculated that there would be "some trouble about it," as it seemed likely that others at the Sheriff's Sale would bid higher than the twelve or thirteen thousand dollars that the new owners had already purchased it for, and invited Mr. Sprence to come see for himself. Buchanan signed boldly under the closing "from your friend, very respectfully." The letter is written on blue "superfine satin" writing paper measuring 10" x 8". Condition: There is a small separation at one of the fold lines in the blank top margin and two small remnants from previous mounting on the verso. Otherwise in excellent condition, this letter would display beautifully. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Mémoire sur la nature des fonctions arbitraires qui entrent dans les intégrales des équations aux différentielles partielles [suivi de] De functionibus arbitrariis calculi integralis

"In 1787 Arbogast took par tin a competition organized by the Academie of St. Petersbourg on "the arbitrary functions introduced by the integration of differential equations which have more than two variables", the question being "Do they belong to any curves or surfaces either algebraic, transcendatal, or mechanical, either discontinuous or produced by a simple movement of the hand ? Or shouldn't they legitimately be applied only to continuous curves susceptible of being expressed by algebraic or transcendental equations ?" The Academie was thus requesting a drastic settlement of the dispute between Jean d'Alembert, who adopted the second point of view, and Euler, partisan of the first. Arbogast won the prize was even bolder than Euler in his conclusions. He showed that arbitrary functions may tolerate not only discontinuities in the Eulerian sense of the term, but also "combintaions of several portions of different curves or those drawn by the free movement of the hand", that is, discontinuities in the sense afterwards used by Augustin Cauchy" (DSB).

        Mémoires concernant l'histoire, les sciences, les arts, les mœurs, les usages, [.] des chinois: par les missionaires de Pekin.

      Paris, Nyon, 1776[-1791]. - 4to. 15 vols. Half-titles in vols. I-II and IX-XIV; two engraved portrait frontispieces: Qianlong Emperor (vol. 1) and M. Amiot (vol. 15), 151 (of 158) engraved plates (some folding), maps and tables (lacking 7 plates in vol. 2). Contemp. French mottled calf. Spines gilt. First edition of the first fifteen volumes of this monumental survey of Chinese life in the 18th century as witnessed by the Jesuit missionaries. This work by missionaries including Cibot, Bourgeois, Poirot, Ko and Yang comprises translations of classic Chinese works of law, maxims and proverbs, as well as essays on Chinese linguistics, current affairs and scientific observation. Volume VII is a reprint of Amiot's "Art militaire des Chinois" (Paris 1772), the first translation into a European language of the ancient Chinese military strategy, while volume XII, the "Vie de Confucius", was more complete and accurate than any previous text on the subject. - Amiot, the main contributor, went to China in 1740 and soon won the confidence of the Qianlong Emperor, remaining for the rest of his life in Beijing after the suppression of the Jesuits in 1773. Fluent in both Chinese and Tartar, his works were amongst the first to bring the philosophy and life of the East to the western world, and his "Dictionnaire tatare-mantchou-français" (Paris 1789) was the first to introduce these languages to Europe. Many of the engravings are based on Chinese designs sent by Amiot to Henri Bertin, minister in charge of Chinese affairs under Louis XVI. - Volumes 16 and 17 were published much later in 1814 and under a different imprint, and complete sets are infrequently found on the market. - Some wear to spine ends and at edges. Provenance: from the library of Jean R. Perrette with his bookplate on the pastedown. Barbier III, 182. Brunet III, 1596. Cordier (Sinica) I, 54f. Lust 96 (vols. 1-16 only). Streit VII, 3419n (pp. 339-341). Cf. Quérard I, 52. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Manuscript copy of Edward Gibbon's will, apparently contemporary

      1791. 4 pp. pen and brown ink on two folded sheets, Britannia watermark (c. 1791), copies of the signatures of Gibbon and the witnesses [Thomas] Pelham, [Sir] Godfrey Webster and J. Satan, and the date of subscription, Lausanne, 1 October 1791. Folio. Light creases from prior folding, paper repair to second sheet at folds. In a custom red morocco-backed slipcase and chemise. 4 pp. pen and brown ink on two folded sheets, Britannia watermark (c. 1791), copies of the signatures of Gibbon and the witnesses [Thomas] Pelham, [Sir] Godfrey Webster and J. Satan, and the date of subscription, Lausanne, 1 October 1791. Folio. "By his will [Gibbon] left the bulk of his property (thought by Edmond Malone to be in the region of £26,000) to his cousins, Charlotte and Stanier James Porten; Wilhelm de Sévery received £3000 and Gibbon's household effects in Lausanne. Sheffield had encouraged Gibbon to allow his books to be preserved as a collection at Sheffield Place 'where they would … be handed down seris nepotibus as the Gibbonian Library'. But Gibbon, as a 'friend to the circulation of property of every kind', decided instead that a public sale would be the most 'laudable' method of disposal (Letters, 3.263 and n. 15). They were bought for £950 by William Beckford, and neglected. On 20 December 1934 several hundred items from Gibbon's library were auctioned by Sothebys" (ODNB). Provenance: Robert S Pirie (bookplate, acquired from Mott, 14 July 2000)

        Neuigkeiten. (Ins Deutsche übersetzt von J. R. v. Sinner u. a.).

      Walthard, 1791-96., Bern. - 2 Bde. Mit 2 gestoch. Tit., 2 gest. Front., 72 tlw. in Rötel, Bister oder Blau gedr. Kpf.-Taf. von S. Freudenberg(er) u. 143 gest. Vign. von A. Dunker. 209; 222 S. Walthard-Weigelt 41; Hayn-Got. IV, 400 F.; Fromm 16217; Lewine 339; Rümann 691. - Selten! Mit den Illustrationen der französischen Ausgabe Bern 1780-81 ausgestattete deutsche Heptameron-Ausgabe, in nur 400 Exemplaren gedruckt. "Die Illustrierung vertraute man Freudenberger und Dunker an. Freudenberger, durch seinen achtjährigen Aufenthalt mit der französischen Genrezeichnung und Buchillustration aufs gründlichste vertraut, mußte sich vortrefflich für die Aufgabe eignen. die schönen ganzseitigen Kupfer wirken dann auch durchaus französisch. Dunker versah das Werk mit hundertvierundvierzig Vignetten, die zu dem Schönsten dieser Gattung zählen" (Lanckoronska-Oehler II, 187 ff.) und der zeitgenössische Kunstkritiker Wagner urteilte (in Lanckoronska-Oehler) über die Vignetten "Es läßt sich nichts Geistreicheres und Pikanteres in der Erfindung und Zeichnung, nichts was nur immer der strengste Kenner Schönes, Markiges, Zartes und Vollkommenes von der Radiernadel fordern kann, leisten, als hier Dunker [.] geleistet hat. Schwerlich wird man in einem anderen Werk dieser Art einen so großen Reichtum an malerischen Gedanken, eine so unermüdete humoristische Künstlerlaune, eine solche Mannigfaltigkeit antreffen". - Die Schlußvignetten nach der 9. Erzählung nicht gedruckt, deshalb 143 statt der 144 angegebenen Vignetten. - In Bd. 2 fehlt das gestochene Frontispiz und der gestochene identische Titel wie in Bd. 1, dafür ist der abweichende Titel "Reine Margrithe Deutsch 1796" vorhanden. - Einband berieben und bestoßen, Name auf Titel von Bd. 1, S. 165/66 in Bd. 2 mit kleinem Eckabriss (ohne Textverlust), teilweise etwas fleckig, die Kupfertafeln und Vignetten in klaren, kräftigen Abdrucken.

        Geschichte der Reisen, die seit Cook an der Nordwest und Nordost-Kuste von Amerika, und in dem nördlichsten Amerika selbst von Meares, Dixon, Portlock, Coxe, Long u.a.m. unternommen worden sind. Aus dem Englischen

      Berlin: Voss, 1791. In good crisp condition. Spines of bindings somewhat worn and joints wearing but strong; of three small oval numbering-pieces one is original, one a replacement, and one missing.. Three volumes, quarto, with four folding maps and 27 engraved plates.; contemporary marbled calf gilt. The first edition of this highly important work, an extensive account of discoveries and exploration of the Northwest coast of America from the time of Captain Cook. Forster had of course sailed with and extensively written about Cook and continues to do so in commentary here. An earlier much slighter work (Geschichte der Entdeckungen und Schiffahrten im Norden, Frankfurt, 1784) had also dealt with discoveries on the Northwest coast, and that earlier work appeared in both English and French versions. This very much more substantial study did not appear in translation and seems to be rare in institutional collections. It is the only copy of the work that that we have handled for sale. Forbes gives a detailed account of the contents of the three volumes and notes that it is 'an early and imprtant compilation of voyages to the Northwest Coast containing the voyages of Meares, Mortimer, Portlock and Dixon. In volume I, the "Enleitung" contains under the title "Chronologische Nachricht von den Entdeckungen an der Nordwestkuste von Amerika" a series of essays and other commentary by Forster reviewing the history of Northwest Coast explorations, including early explorers such as Juan de Fuca, the Russians and the Spanish, Captain Cook, George Dixon, John Meares and James Colnett, with notes on the difficulties between England and Spain over control of this area'.

        The Genuine Life and Trial of George Barrington, from his birth, in June, 1755, to the Time of his Conviction at the Old-Bailey, in September, 1790, For robbing Henry Hare Townsend, Esq. of his gold Watch, Seals, &c

      W. Clements & J. Sadler, London 1791 - Octavo in fours, with wood-engraved frontispiece. Very rare: the second issue of this scarce pamphlet celebrating the misdeeds and famous speeches from the dock of Australia's most famous convict. This is one of the earliest and most cheaply produced of the Barrington pieces, rarely seen complete with its frontispiece which depicts Barrington picking the pocket of Townsend.This copy is in characteristic condition for such an ephemeral work: in addition to the usual general soiling, there is a contemporary inscription - now partly cropped - in ink on the blank recto of the frontispiece: 'John Bell His Bo[ok] March 28 1797'. Frontispiece cropped by an early binder, title repaired, contemporary owner's inscription in ink, partially obliterated, withal a good copy in recent quarter calf.

      À Paris, chez Janet Libraire 1791 - RARE ALMANACH-HOROSCOPE. TRÈS BEL ÉTAT ET NOMBREUSES GRAVURES. MAROQUIN DE L'ÉPOQUE. In-32 (6,5 x 11,5 cm.) à Paris, chez Janet succ. du sieur Jubert, Rue Saint-Jacques (1791). Maroquin rouge. Encadrement d'un triple-filet doré, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre en maroquin vert, titre doré, dentelle sur les coupes et fermoir porte-crayon avec mine de plomb. Relire de l'époque. Titre gravé, 10 planches hors-texte en noir et blanc, 24 pp. sur papier bleuté (chansons avec musique gravée), puis 48 pp. sur papier bleuté, agenda, etc., puis 6 ff. de calendrier pour 1792. Ce rare almanach-horoscope a été publié et établi par un artisan doreur et fabricant de "couvertures, souvenirs en maroquin et broderies de toutes espèces". La page de titre montre une composition figurant un paysage avec un angelot et un hexagone avec les numéros renvoyant au texte afin d'obtenir les réponses aux questions posées. La page de titre et les 10 autres gravures hors-texte sont gravées par Dorgez. Exemplaire très intéressant, car à la fin de la première partie, on trouve le conte : "Le teinturier malade", qui a été reproduit par la suite de nombreuses fois. Les feuillets vierges de l'agenda portent des notes manuscrites, vraisemblablement du XVIIIe et l'hexagone de la page de titre a visiblement servi, puisqu'il porte de nombreuses minuscules traces d'épingle, qui ont servi depuis le verso à tirer un numéro ! Bel exemplaire, rare et frais.

        Untitled chart of the Bay of Fundy and southwestern Nova Scotia]

      printed and sold by John Norman, [Boston 1791 - Copper-engraved sea chart. Rare American sea chart of the entrance to the Bay of Fundy, Passamaquoddy Bay and the southwestern tip of Nova Scotia. The American Pilot was the second marine atlas published in America, preceded only by Mathew Clark's virtually unobtainable A Complete Set of Sea Charts (Boston 1790). It was originally published in 1791 by John Norman, and new editions of the Pilot appeared in 1792 and 1794. After John Norman's death, his son, William, brought out editions in 1794, 1798, 1801, and 1803. Despite the seemingly large number of editions, The American Pilot is one of the rarest of all American atlases, and only a small handful of copies were published in the eighteenth century. Wheat and Brun (pps. 198-199) locate just ten complete copies for the first five editions: 1791 (Huntington, Harvard); 1792 (LC, Clements); 1794(1) (LC, JCB, Boston Public); 1794(2) (Yale); 1798 (LC, Boston Public). The present untitled chart from Norman's American Pilot principally depicts the entrance to the Bay of Fundy, but also shows the southwestern tip of Nova Scotia and the mainland North American coast as far south as Machias Bay. Wheat & Brun 98; Bosse, "The Boston Map Trade of the Eighteenth Century" in Mapping Boston , pp. 49-52.
