      Milano, dalla Stamperia Reale, 1810, prima edizione. In folio (30 x 45 cm ca.), pp. 4 n. n., 263 pi? indice al retro, antip. con ritratto di Leonardo (ripreso dal Lomazzo) + 6 tavv. f. t. incise all'acquaforte in sanguigna rossa e bistro, illustrate da disegni leonardeschi ed incise da G. Benaglia, C. Longhi e F. Rosaspina, leg. con dorso in pelle marrone, posteriore, e piatti originali in cartonato azzurro. Importante pubblicazione commissionata da Eugenio Napoleone, vicer? d'Italia, al noto pittore milanese. L'opera ? un rilevante lavoro su Leonardo, di particolare interesse per la vasta menzione degli autori che hanno trattato l'argomento a partire dal Pacioli. "L'opera del Cenacolo ? il libro meglio scritto che da noi si conosca in fatto di critica, il quale abbia per iscopo d'illustrare una grand'opera dell'arte". (Predari, p. 426). Dell'opera sono state pubblicate due tirature, di cui una in veste lussuosa, con una didascalia a p. 263, relativa alla tavola che riproduce l'autoritratto di Leonardo, pubblicato qui per la prima volta. Nel primo libro, l'Autore (1777 - 1815) commenta i giudizi di vari scrittori in riferimento al Cenacolo; nel secondo descrive il Cenacolo; nel terzo parla delle copie del famoso dipinto; nel quarto tratta della tecnica di pittura (Verga, p. 298). Esemplare restaurato per alcune mancanze e strappi alle pagine, peraltro fresco, a pieni margini e con barbe. Belle le tavole. Buone condizioni.

        Two Portraits: Boy with Hoop and Young Girl in a Landscape

      London ca. 1810 London, ca. 1810]. 10 x 7-1/2 inches (images. Watercolor on card, first drawing signed lower right. Framed and glazed . "Buck, Adam, 1758-1833, portrait painter, elder son of Jonathan Buck, a silversmith of Castle Street, Cork, was born there in 1759. With a younger brother, Frederick, he studied art from an early age, and acquired some repute in youth in his native city as a painter of miniature portraits in water-colour. Coming to London in 1795, he settled at 174 Piccadilly, and soon gained popularity. He not only continued to paint miniature portraits in water-colour, but produced many portraits in oil and crayon of larger size. Between 1795 and 1833, the year of his death, he exhibited at the academy as many as 171 pictures. He also exhibited ten other works at the British Institution and at the Society of British Artists in Suffolk Street. But the pictures that he exhibited represent a small proportion of his labours. Numerous pictures by him were reproduced in coloured engravings, mostly in stipple, and had a wide circulation. Of extant coloured engravings after his pictures the originals of as many as forty or fifty are not known to have been exhibited. Among his sitters were the Earl of Cavan, the Duke of York, Sir Francis Burdett, Major Cartwright, John Cam Hobhouse, and John Burke, author of the Peerage,' and his family. His portraits were carefully finished, although they were stiff in treatment and design. Buck was at the same time busily employed as a teacher of portrait painting, and in 1811 he brought out a volume entitled Paintings on Greek Vases,' which contained a hundred designs, not only drawn, but also engraved by himself. This work, which was planned to continue a similar compilation by Sir William Hamilton, is now extremely scarce. In 1807 he moved from Piccadilly to Frith Street, Soho, and after several changes of residence died at 15 Upper Seymour Street West in 1833. Buck was married and left two sons, Alfred and Sidney; the latter followed his father's profession. A miniature portrait of Buck by himself dated 1804, is in the Sheepshanks gallery of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. " - DNB

        Essays on physiognomy, designed to promote the knowledge and the love of mankind

      John MurrayComplete with all blank leaves, half-titles and directions to the binder. With more than 800 engravings, including 173 copper engraved plates and 359 text images by and after Thomas Holloway, Fuseli and others, and by William Blake. Contemporary polished calf, gilt spines, front joints a bit sensitive; interior with minor foxing and off-setting of the plates as usual, but generally a tall, clean and well-margined set in excellent condition. First English edition of Volumes I and II, with the sheets of the third volume reissued by Stockdale. The work is famous for the splendid illustrations and vignettes, including the plates by William Blake. It was a classic pseudo-scientific work, extremely influential in the history of psychiatry, and represents Lavater's account of madmen, demons, and terror. Fuseli's drawings are rendered with distinction in the engravings of Thomas Holloway, and in one instance, Gillray (see Ray, The illustrator and the book in England, 20). Lavater (1741-1801) was a German poet, mystical writer and physiognomist.

        On the Motion of Rockets both in Nonresisting and Resisting Mediums. (3 Parts).

      London, W. Nicholson, 1810-1811. Without wrappers. In: "A Journal of Natural Philosophy, Chemistry, and the Arts. By William Nicholson. Vol. XXVII, December, 1810 + Vol. XXVIII, Mrch 1811 + Vol. XXIX, 1811 (the whole issues offered). With titlepages to vol. 27, 28 a. 29. Small stamps to verso of titlepage.

Moore's paper (in three parts): pp. 276-285 a. 1 engraved plate., pp. 161-169 a. 1 engraved plate, pp. 241-254 a. 1 engraved plate.. First appearance of the first scientific, mathematical work on ROCKET DYNAMICS applying Newton's third law of motion. The offered paper in 3 parts and it is perhaps here, that the first ROCKET EQUATION WAS PUBLISHED. The equation is named after Konstantin Tsiolkovsky who independently derived it and published it in his 1903 work The rocket equation, or ideal rocket equation, is a mathematical equation that relates the delta-v (the maximum change of speed of the rocket if no other external forces act) with the effective exhaust velocity and the initial and final mass of a rocket or other reaction engine."His theories on rockets first appeared in Nicholson's Journal for 1810 and 1811. In 1813 Moore published his collected findings as A Treatise on the Motion of Rockets. The world's first mathematical treatise on rocket dynamics, it had many shortcomings; and Moore admitted that lack of data had hindered his calculations. Nonetheless, he correctly recognized and demonstrated that Newton's third law of motion explained the principle of rocket motion. Moore was the first to consider rocket performance in terms other than range and altitude, and he arrived at calculations for thrust and specific impulse. He also suggested the use of the ballistic pendulum for a more accurate determination of performance."(DSB).Moore's origin and education are unknown. His writings and position as a mathematical instructor at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich, England, suggest that he was influenced by Charles Hutton, professor of mathematics at the academy from 1773 to 1807. Moore was chosen as an assistant mathe-matical master in October 1806, Hutton being one of the three examiners on the selection board. By August 1807, Moore had advanced to the post of mathematical master. In July 1823 he left the academy because of a staff reduction.(DSB)
