Il fréquenta beaucoup les salons où il retrouvait Rousseau, Diderot, d'Holbach, Helvetius, Voltaire et, avec son frère, Madame de Tencin ; il fut également assez proche des physiocrates. En 1758, il devint le précepteur de l'infant don Ferdinand, fils du duc de Parme et remplit cette fonction pendant neuf années. Rentré en France, il fut élu à l'Académie française en 1768. Petites usures à quelques coiffes et coins, bon exemplaire dans l'ensemble, dans une reliure décorative.

        Atlas des Anciens Plans de Paris; Reproduction en Fac-Simile des Originaux les Plus Rares et les Plus Intéressants pour l'Histoire de la Topographie Parisienne

      72 pp. text on plans of Paris from the earliest medieval depictions to 1798, many of which are extremely rare and seldom reproduced, with ext. historical and critical commentary, appendix of documents incl. a detailed early 18th-century description of Paris and her streets, notes, 64 superb photogravure plates (many double-page and folding, numbered I - XXXI with many "bis" and additional plates). Elephant folio. Cloth-backed boards, a bit soiled and rubbed. Paris (Imprimerie Nationale) 1880. (Histoire Générale de Paris). Certainly one of the most stunning documents ever compiled on the history of Paris. Each plan is reproduced in its entirety, in reduced scale, many on several separate plates. Among these are the maps of Quesnel, Boisseau, Bullet and Blondel, Jouvin de Rochefort, Roussel, Jaillot, and Verniquet. The city of Paris and the French nation both contributed large sums for the creation of this work, which was made specially for the Universal Exposition of 1878.

        Le Coste Nord Ovest dell'America e Nord Est dell'Asia delineate sille ultime osservazioni del Cap. Cook

      1798. " EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Bella e decorativa carta geografica delle coste dall'America settentrionale all'Asia, passando dall'Alaska alla Siberia, per illustrare le allora recenti scoperte del capitano Cook. Tratta dal ""Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni"", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l'ormai obsoleto ""Mercurio Geografico"". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo ""Nuovo Atlante Geografico"". Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, leggere bruniture, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'Atlante del Cassini fu ristampato dalla Calcografia Camerale nel primo quarto del XIX secolo, prima del 1839. Solo gli esemplari di prima edizione come questo sono stampati su carta vergata coeva e sono colorati a mano in epoca. Le tirature del XIX secolo sono già su carta meccanica, priva di vergelle, e generalmente in bianco e nero." FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced this interesting map of costlines of Alaska, the Bering Strait and Siberia, in order to illustrate the discoveries made by Cook. Published in: Nuovo atlante geografico universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni. Roma, Calcografia camerale, 1792 - 1801. Cassini was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives - he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine original hand colour, some foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Roma Rome 504 370

        Continuation of the history of the province of Massachusetts Bay, from the year 1748. With an introductory sketch of events from its original settlement.

      Boston: Printed by Manning & Loring; Printed for James White & Co. proprietors, by Manning & Loring 8vo (21.8 cm; 8.625"). 2 vols. I: viii, [1], 10?304 pp. II: vii, [2], 10?222 pp.. Feb. 1798; June 1803 Minot (1758?1802), a respected Boston judge, meant this work to be a continuation of Thomas Hutchinson's history of Massachusetts-Bay, which was published in 1764. While he originally intended his account to reach the start of the Revolutionary War, he only made it to 1765 before he passed away; the second volume, which covers 1748?65, was posthumously published in 1803. Evidence of Readership: Numerous pencilled marginal notes, usually one word or a date "tagging" the contents of a paragraph. Provenance: Ink signature of Enoch Ponder dated 1841; later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). 18th-century acid-stained calf with attractive gilt black and red leather labels and gilt triple ruling on spine, board edges stamped in blind, all edges speckled blue; moderate rubbing, one volume's hinges and joints cracked, the usual glue action on endpapers, two torn, one partially detached. Marked and ex-library as above; call number labels on spines, bookplates, pencilled call numbers on title-page versos. Moderate age-toning with offsetting from binding, some foxing, and the occasional spot; one leaf repaired of old, a few with creased corners.

        La langue des calculs, ouvrage posthume et élémentaire, imprimé sur les manuscrits autographes de l'auteur

      Paris, Charles Houel, 1798. de 484, (1) pp veau moucheté, dos lisse, tranches marbrées 1798, 1798, in-8, de 484, (1) pp, veau moucheté, dos lisse, tranches marbrées, Édition originale d'un livre qui exerça une profonde influence sur le goût des sciences de toute une génération. Pour Condillac, comme pour ses prédécesseurs de la tradition rationnelle, les mathématiques étaient le symbole même de la connaissance. Sa préférence allait à l'analyse plutôt qu'au raisonnement synthétique. La géométrie s'étant montrée vulnérable à ceux qui élaboraient des systèmes, c'est l'algèbre qui, pour lui, présentait une science complète, étant, en effet, à la fois un langage et une méthode d'analyse. L'approche philosophique de Condillac épousait la mission réformatrice des Lumières, le commandement du rationalisme réduisant les dispositions humaines par leur rapprochement aux phénomènes naturels et proposant une interprétation de la grammaire de la nature (cf. DSB, Charles C. Gillispie). C'est par ce livre que Condillac a agi sur les tendances philosophiques de la génération qui lui succéda. Comme ses prédécesseurs rationalistes, qui voyaient dans les mathématiques le parangon de savoir, il développa, comme il l'avait fait dans ses œuvres précédentes, l'analyse plutôt que le mode scientifique de raisonnement. Condillac est parfois proche de visions prémonitoires dans l'intuition du langage artificiel des machines modernes. On trouve, par ailleurs, l'analyse du texte de Condillac sous l'angle des transformations conceptuelles, dont le dix-huitième siècle fut le théâtre : "L'idée de "Calcul" perd sa signification exclusivement mathématique. Le calcul n'est plus uniquement applicable au nombre et à la grandeur : il déborde du domaine de la quantité sur celui des qualités pures... L'Idée de Calcul a la même extension que celle de Science ; elle est applicable à toutes les multiplicités dont la structure se ramène à certaines relations fondamentales...

        Le Isole di Sandwich delineate sulle osservazioni del Cap. Cook

      1798. " - EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Importante e decorativa mappa delle Isole Hawaii, tratta dal ""Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni"", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l'ormai obsoleto ""Mercurio Geografico"". Questa è l'unica carta dell'arcipelago impreziosita da un decorativo cartiglio d'immaginazione che illustra la morte del capitano Cook, sull'isola di Hawaii, durante il viaggio del 1779. La prematura morte di Cook, nelle illustrazioni del tardo '700, riscosse un incredibile successo. Cassini, che non era mai stato alle Hawaii, ha usato ""Carta delle Isole Sandwich"" di Cook come modello per la sua mappa, commettendo alcuni errori interessanti. La sua rappresentazione dei nativi hawaiani con i loro copricapi di piume in realtà ricorda più degli Indiani d'America. L'errore più grande è quello di di mostrare Cook, un ufficiale della marina inglese, in divisa da ufficiale navale italiano. Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo ""Nuovo Atlante Geografico"". Incisione in rame, bellissima coloritura coeva dei contorni, piccole ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione." " - FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced this splendid early map of the Hawaiian Islands as part of his epic three - volume atlas. This is the only map we have seen embellished with a decorative cartouche, imaginatively illustrating the death of Captain Cook on the island of Hawaii in 1779. Captain Cook's daring voyages and untimely death made this one of the most famous scenes of the late 18th century. Cassini, who had never been to Hawaii, used Cook's ""Chart of the Sandwich Islands"" as a model for his map, and he made some interesting errors. His representation of the Hawaiian natives with their feather headdresses is actually more reminiscent of the American Indians. His final mistake is to show Cook, an English naval officer, in an Italian naval officer's uniform. An uncommon map, published in the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives - he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine original hand colour, isome foxing, otherwise in very good condition. The Cassini's Atlas was reprinted by the Calcografia Camerale in the first qurrter of XIXth century (before 1839).

"..quelquefois ses descriptions manquent d'exactitude, mais il traite avec profondeur tout ce qui concerne les antiquités, et avec assez de discernement et de goût les diverses parties des beaux - arts; mais ce qui distingue sur - tout sa relation, ce sont les recherches aux quelles il se livre sur les diverses branches de commerce et d'industrie propres à chaque contrée qu'il parcourt.

        Essays on the Microscope; Containing a Practical Description of the Most Improved Microscopes The second edition, with considerable additions and improvements.

      Printed by Dillon and Keating, for the Editor, London: 1798 - 11 SECOND EDITION, enlarged, with the first issue of the frontispiece plate and first of the Atlas title. This work is a most thorough treatment on microscopy, reviewing the history of the topic, of optics, a description of microscope instruments, before entering into describing various items from nature. Adams states "When I first undertook the present essays, I had confined myself to a re-publication of my father’s work, entitled, MICROGRAPHIA ILLUSTRATA; but I soon found that both his and Mr. Baker’s tracts on the microscope were very imperfect. Natural history had not been so much cultivated at the period when they wrote, as it is in the present day I have in the fifth chapter, after some general observations on the utility of natural history, endeavoured to remedy their defects, by arranging the subject in systematic order, and by introducing the microscope reader to the system of Linnaeus, as far as relates to insects: by this he [the reader] will learn to discriminate one insect from another, to characterize their different parts, and thus be better enabled to avoid error himself. And to convey instruction to others." (pp. x-xi). Adams, being "seduced" by these "little creatures" expanded his descriptions of them. With chapter six he bases his discussion of insects on the work of Lyonet (1742), focused on the caterpillar of the Phalaena Cassus. Adams, Jr. (1750-1795), son of well-known instrument-maker George Adams (1709-1772), both instrument makers to the king. He was an optician, instrument maker (to George III) and prolific writer on instruments and scientific issues. Gee notes that Adams had studied Louis Joblot on the microscope and animalculae and Abraham Trembley on the polyp. Provenance: Max Erb, of Max Erb Instruments, Santa Ynez, California. This company started in 1954 and specializes in microscopes. [FULL TITLE: Essays on the Microscope; Containing a Practical Description of the Most Improved Microscopes; A General History of Insects., An account of the various species A Description of Three Hundred and Eighty- Three Animalcula, with a Concise Catalogue of Interesting Objects: A view of the organization of timber, and the Configuration of Salts when Under the Microscope.
