A restoration with the lower joint in mind. Good copy.The arrival in Paris of a black albino was the occasion for the author to expose his theses on the fortuitous variations which explain the birth of new varieties; these ideas prefigure and contain in germ the genetic theories.

      A. Millar, London 1751 - First edition. xv, [i], 127, [1] pp. 8vo. First edition of Fielding's most important social tract, written as chief magistrate, "the most remarkable of his social tracts - a work as important for what it reveals about his temperament and character as for the remedies it prescribes for the disorders of the commonwealth" (Battestin, pp. 513-4).Fielding advocates reforms to the penal code that would curb the social ills - drunkenness, gambling, prostitution, theft - that plagued mid-18th century England. The social order can only be maintained by instilling fear in the general population, and punishment should be harsh and swift. Executions, instead of being public spectacles, should arouse fear and terror and should be solemnly conducted in secret. This copy bound by The Club Bindery, founded in 1895 by members of the Grolier Club to provide exceptionally fine binding for American collectors.

         An Enquiry Concerning The Principles of Morals.

      London: A. Milar, 1751. First edition, first state of L3, with catchword "than" on recto of what Hume himself considered his masterpiece. 12 mo, bound in contemporary full calf. With half-title, errata leaf, and 3 pages of ads at end. In very good condition with light toning and wear, inscription of the Caslon Society on front free endpaper. The Caslon Society was founded by William Caslon the Elder, who was an English typefounder. The distinction and legibility of his type secured him the patronage of the leading printers of the day in England and on the continent. His typefaces transformed English type design and first established an English national typographic style. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Hume's Treatise of Human Nature (1739-40) was the first attempt to apply principles of Locke's empirical psychology to a theory of knowledge. In this and his Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals, Hume stands as a leading voice in the school of Utilitarianism, "the most influential and longest continuing tradition in English speaking moral philosophy... marked by a long line of brilliant writers" that includes Adam Smith, Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill. Hume's Enquiry importantly explores "how we make moral judgments... the 'mechanism' of moral judgments. How are they made and what accounts for their content? Hume aims to be the 'Newton of the Passions.' In contrast to Locke, he does not present a normative system of principles founded on the Laws of Nature... [but] the role it plays in social life and in establishing social unity and mutual understanding... What Hume is trying to do is explain the fact that we agree... On Hume's view there is only one possible basis, and that is one that appeals to our principle of humanity... the psychological tendency we have to identify with the interests and concerns of others when our own interests do not come into competition with them" (Rawls 162, 177-87). An Enquiry was, in Hume's own opinion, "Of all my writings incomparably the best" (Autobiography). The influence of Utilitarianism as furthered by Hume was immense: "He may be regarded as the acutest thinker in Great Britain of the 18th century" (DNB).

French hydrographer and for 50 years he was associated with the 'Depot des cartes et Plans' (Depot de la Marine) as the First hydrographer of the French Royal Navy. His maps were constantly updated with the latest information and their execution magnificent. Bellin's major works are the 'Neptune Francois .', the 'Petit Atlas Maritime .' and the 'Hydrographie Francoise .' As a member of a French intellectual group called the 'Philosophes' and he contributed 994 articles to the 'Encyclopedie' by Diderot/d'Alembert.

         Scritti sopra le Valli di Ostellato: esistevano nelle Scritture del Dott. Bertaglia. 1751.

      , 0 - Documento di mm 296x208 composto da 3 fogli, di cui uno singolo e due doppi, più un foglio volante (mm 293x200) su carta differente vergato in grafia diversa (in totale 6 carte). Il primo foglio e' bianco salvo per il titolo e la data sul recto. Il testo è vergato su una colonna sola (con molte cancellature e correzioni riportate sulla colonna opposta) e reca la data 5 febbraio 1745. Con richiami in calce (testo completo). Il foglio volante aggiunto è anch'esso scritto su una colonna sola e reca la data Ferrara, 7 aprile 1751. Minimi danni ai margini, qualche macchia, lievi arrossamenti marginali. Entrambe i testi riportano un parere tecnico circa dei lavori da eseguirsi sugli argini, sui ripari e sui "lavorieri" di canna della valle di Ostellato, in una diatriba con i Comacchiesi riguardante la pesca e lo spostamento del pesce. Il parere più esteso, redatto su richiesta del Commissario della R.C. Avv. Baldeschi, si richiama all'autorità di Luca Danesi, autore di Un discorso dela Cavo Contarino nel Ferrarese alla Punta d'Ariano, pubblicato insieme nelle Opere (Ferrara, 1670). Pur non essendo firmato, la nota sul titolo ricorda che questi scritti si trovavano fra le carte di Romualdo Bertaglia ed è quindi ipotizzabile che siano ascrivibili a quest'ultimo e che siano state scritte di suo pugno. Romualdo Bertaglia fu uno dei massimi ingegneri idraulici ferraresi del Settecento ed ebbe il titolo di matematico ed idrostatico della città. Insieme a Gian Andrea Barotti, letterato e uomo politico al centro del riformismo settecentesco a Ferrara, svolse un ruolo chiave nel progetto di immissione del Reno nel Po di Primaro attraverso la costruzione del cosiddetto cavo Benedettino.

This interesting work shows the specimens of one of the most famous curiosity cabinets of the seventeenth century. The first edition was printed in Lyon in 1719 followed by an enlarged edition in 1733, reissued in 1751. This edition includes 93 noteworthy engraved plates, largely by Daudet, and one by Duflos. It includes the additional plates 31a, 52a, 56a, 72a, 84a-d; the plates 39, 48, and 76 are skipped as in the first edition, and the remaining plates are numbered 1 to 88. The grand nephew of Jean Grolier, the greatest bibliophile of the French Renaissance, the Lyonnais Nicolas Grollier de Servieres (1596-1689) was one of the most remarkable curious of the Grand Siecle. Not satisfied with collecting, he himself, like Besson and Ramelli, carried out very learned models and mechanical machines, as well as ivory tower pieces of infinite complexity, clocks and other hydraulic devices. The reputation of his cabinet extended beyond the frontiers of the kingdom, and the fact of having himself invented and executed the pieces adorned by his collection gave a particular attraction to the whole. The tower pieces were placed in cupboards, the doors of which were opened at the same time by a small ivory ankle placed on a table far removed from them; this singular staging contributed to the charm of the collection. During a stay at Lyons, King Louis XIV visited the cabinet two days in succession. Finally, one of the sons of Grollier de Servieres, the great prior of the Savigny Abbey, enriched his father's cabinet with pieces of his invention. The first part contains lathe work, the second art and hourglass, the third model of machines. The work includes descriptions and illustrations of mechanical toys, clocks, hydtaulic devices, lifting apparatus, pontoon bridges, paddle boats, siege equipment, lamps, or a reading-desk. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

         Discursus legales de commercio et mercatura in quibus universa fere commercii er mercaturae materia resolutive continentur.Genevae, apud fratres De Tournes , 1751.

      Genevae, apud fratres De Tournes 1751 - Pp. (20) 458 + 1 c.b. Unito a: STRACCHA BENVENUTUS. Tractatus duo de assecurationibus et proxenetis atque proxeneticis. Stessi dati tip. Pp. (4) 119 (1). Due parti in un volume di cm. 37. Bellissimi marchi tip. ai frontespizi (il primo dei quali bicromo). Leg. ottocentesca in mezza pelle con titoli su tass. e fregi in oro al dorso. Abile restauro alla parte bassa del dorso, lieve aloni sparsi, leggere fioriture ed alcune macchiette, trascurabili tracce di tarlo perlopiù marginali, peraltro nel complesso buon esemplare. Ansaldo Ansaldi (1651-1719), celebre giurista fiorentino, ricoprì alte cariche alla corte pontificia e fu uditore di Sacra Rota; nel 1689 compose il Discursus de commercio et mercatura che gli garantì fama in tutta Europa. Benvenuto Stracca (1509-1578) fu praticus e ricoprì numerose cariche pubbliche; fu il primo giurista a cercare di individuare il diritto commerciale come una come un corpus giuridico autonomo e va quindi considerato un vero e proprio precursore della disciplina, almeno secondo la concezione contemporanea del termine. Non comune e sempre ricercato. Cfr. Kvk; Sapori, 77. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         L'Art de charpenterie. Corrigé & augmenté de ce qu'il y a de plus curieux dans cet art, & des machines les plus nécessaires à un charpentier. Par M. de La Hire. Troisième édition.

      Paris, Charles-Antoine Jombert 1751 - in-folio, [4] ff. n. ch. (titre, avertissement, table, privilège), 212 pp., avec de nombreuses figures dans le texte et 10 planches dépliantes hors-texte (9 planches d'architecture regroupant 15 figures ; et une planche supplémentaire non chiffrée représentant le pont de bois de Scamozzi, en regard de la page 186), veau fauve marbré, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, pièce de titre, double filet doré sur les coupes, tranches mouchetées de rouge (reliure de l'époque). Restaurations aux coiffes, mors et coins, mais bon exemplaire. Architecte et ingénieur de la ville de La Flèche, Mathurin Jousse (1607- vers 1692) publia plusieurs traités techniques - sur la perspective, l'art de la serrurerie, le Secret d'architecture. De tous ses écrits, Le Théâtre de l'art de charpentier (1627) fut celui qui rencontra le plus de succès et qui fit autorité en son domaine pendant plus d'un siècle. Gabriel-Philippe de La Hire (1677-1719), astronome, mathématicien, membre de l'Académie des Sciences et professeur à l'Académie d'Architecture, en donna une édition corrigée et augmentée à Paris dès 1702 (manières pour faire le toisé, le toit brisé, "dit à la Mansarde", etc.). Il ajouta en outre plusieurs planches - dont celles des outils et des machines - reprises des Principes de l'architecture d'André Félibien (1676), du Cours d'architecture de François Blondel (1683) ainsi que de celui d'Augustin-Charles d'Aviler (1691). Le traité de Jousse étant devenu "aussi rare que cher", le libraire Charles-Antoine Jombert, "pour satisfaire au désir du Public", mit sur le marché cette nouvelle édition en 1751. La table des bois équarris avec leur valeur en pièces, pieds & pouces a ainsi été refondue et Jombert a ajouté un nouvel abrégé des cinq Ordres d'architecture, "mis à la portée des ouvriers", repris de Claude Perrault. Fowler, p. 132.
