7 lettres autographes signées (4) et lettres signées (3) 6 pp. 1/2 In-4 (petit) 1799-1801 Cachets et marques postales. On joint le cahier de correspondance de M. Guillard-Senainville dans lequel il gardait copie de ses lettres dont certaines au duc d’Albert de Luynes et au comte de Montmorency (13 feuillets autographes, brochés, 1798-1801, recto-verso) et les couplets chantés à la saint Charles, fête de M. le Duc de Luynes, le 3 novembre 1800, par Guillard-Senainville (5 feuillets autographes, brochés, recto-verso). bon Dans cette curieuse correspondance, le duc Louis-Joseph d'Albert de Luynes écrit à son ami M. Guillard-Senainville, agent général de la Société d'encouragement pour l'Industrie nationale : « En pareille circonstance on prend son chapeau et son épée et on va en Galilée ou on plante tout le monde sans rien dire. Adieu la compagnie. Que d'affligées, que de maris tranquilles dans Chartres [où réside Guillard] quand vous serez parti. » Les femmes sont en effet l'un des thèmes dominants de cette correspondance : « Si vos belles, mon cher Guiard, vous font infidélité, comment doivent me travailler mes concubines. L'une était comme un cardinal en chapeau rouge, l'autre en lévite couverte de fleurs blanches, d'autres enfin flétries par la chaleur. » La ville de Chartres en est un autre : « Sans prendre la misanthropie comme vous, je ris du passé, je me repose sur le présent et glose sur l'avenir. Voulez-vous que je vous dise que votre misanthropie tient un peu du hibou qui n'aime que le soir, parce qu'il pince la proie plus facilement. Ne feriez-vous pas de même ?

Monge, Gaspard.

Erste Ausgabe. - "Monge's important contribution is known from his 'Géométrie descriptive'.

Within a few years this new discipline was being taught in french scientific and technical schools and had spread to several other Continental countries" (DSB). - Monge (1746-1818) "gilt heute als eigentlicher Begründer der darstellenden und der Differentialgeometrie und auch als wesentlicher Anreger der projektiven Geometrie, die von seinen Schülern Carnot, Poncelet, Brianchon u.a. ausgebaut wurde. Die darstellende Geometrie. erhob er in den Rang einer systematischen und eigenständigen mathematischen Disziplin" (Lexikon bedeutender Mathematiker). - Stellenweise gering stockfleckig, gebräunt bzw. angestaubt, sonst wohlerhalten. - DSB 9, 469 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

per Dionigi Ramanzini, 1799. L'opera, completa in quattro volumi, cambia titolo in "Vite di alcuni Santi scritte nel buon secolo della lingua toscana" negli ultimi due tomi.

Plate : 'Iceau de Salomon - Convallaria multiflora L.' (King Solomon's Seal, David's Harp, Ladder-to-Heaven). Handcoloured stipple engraving on a verge type hand laid paper. Description: Original antique master print. Origin: 'Fleurs Dessinees d'apres Nature.' (Flowers Drawn from Life) were published from 1799-1801, 24 stipple engravings of supreme quality destined to be a bible for would-be flower painters. Exact age of this ed. not known but based on the paper estimate 1820. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text. These can both be prints made by old masters (artists) or prints made by others (artists, engravers, etchers) after old masters.Artists and Engravers: Engraved by Le Grand after a painting by Van Spaendonck, in c.1810. Gerard van Spaendonck (1746-1822) was a Dutch painter, born in Tilburg, the son of Cornelis van Spaendonck, also an established painter. After studying under Herreyns, he moved to Paris and was appointed miniature painter in the court of Louis XVI. In 1780 he succeeded Madeleine Francoise Basseporte at professor of floral painting. Pierre Francois le Grand (b.1775-d.?)was a French engraver, who worked closely with Van Spaendonck on his 'Fleurs Dessinees d'Apres Nature'. Storage location: DP-B6-38 The overall size is ca. 15.6 x 22.2 inch. The image size is ca. 13.8 x 19.7 inch. The overall size is ca. 39.5 x 56.5 cm. The image size is ca. 35 x 50 cm.

Fourth edition, the first in octavo and the first with the reduced re-engraved plates, five of which were by Blake, one after Fuseli (The Fertilization of Egypt), but strangely omitting Tornado from the earlier editions.

Clarke, Edward Goodman
Londini : in aedibus auctoris et apud Bibliopolarum Tabernas habendum 1799 - pp: [vi], 214, errata. This copy was once held at the library of the Birmingham Medical Institute, and is bound in their library binding [probably late 19th or early 20th century]. Volume is bound as a 24mo (128mm X 83mm) hardcover in red textured cloth, with gilt spine lettering and red speckled text-block edges - and the bookbinder's label (C. Cooper & Co Ltd, Birmingham) is to front paste-down. Fore-margin has been trimmed a little more than upper and lower egdes, but no text has been truncated - and the only library mark inside is a light rubber stamping to the title page. Also to title page is an inked previous owner name (probably contemporary). On p50 is an inked correction (probably contemporary) to a heading, where 'cura' is corrected to 'causa' VERY GOOD condition. Neat and sturdy binding with clear spine lettering and very light rubs to extremities. Text-block is tight with leaves that are generally clean and crisp, but there are a few minor flaws: the fore-margins of pp22-24 have a small (3mm - 5mm) dark spot (see photos); pp81-84 also have a dark spot , this time to lower corner; p113/114 has a 40mm tear to lower margin (text not affected); and the fore-margins of the last twenty or so leaves have light water-staining. Overall, a nicely preserved copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The account also included mechanics, astronomy, optics, and music, which were then considered subdivisions of mathematics; these branches (mathématiques mixtes) receive a thorough treatment in both editions, and only a third of the space is devoted to pure mathematics."
