         Candide, ou l'optimisme, traduit de l'allemand de Mr. le Docteur Ralph

      Geneva: Gabriel Cramer, 1759. 1st edition (in French), 1st printing anywhere, preceding the 17 other editions published in 1759 (all of them superficially alike). Rare. The census records 20 or so genuine copies, a number akin to the 1865 Alice in Wonderland. Contemporary full French calf, gilt decorated spine, the final blank (N7) and the binder's instructions (N8) are not bound with this copy, as is both proper and usual, the instructions routinely meant to be deliberated and then discarded before sewing, along with its companion blank. The publisher's cancels (B4-B9 and D6-D7) are present, again, as is proper and usual, agreeing in all respects to what you would have received, if you had purchased a copy in sheets, on publication day, and handed them over to the most local Swiss bindery. Short hairline split at the end of 1 joint, a few minute points of wear cunningly detailed, else nearly fine, never rebacked, authentic as winter weather, captivating beyond discerning expectations, a copy just as you'd want it, and Candide endures as the Romanée Conti of French literature. Reference: Printing and the Mind of Man 204, one of only a dozen or so novels included with their greatest books from the history of Western civilization. Here is a real book looking for a real collector, and I remember those days when I was a collector, and I'd have prized this book every day I owned it, but, while book collecting was the maiden I loved, bookselling was the whore I married. Late 20th century analysis of the various 1759 editions has irrefutably determined that this one (published by the Cramers in Geneva), is the real 1st edition, with all the myriad points necessary to identify it, and to differentiate it, from all of its contemporaries as well as all of the facsimiles. This 1st printing has Voltaire's last second revisions eliminating an unnecessary paragraph break on page 31, rewriting a few lines about the Lisbon earthquake on page 41, (related to the B4 to B9 cancels) and eliminating a paragraph critical of German poets on page 242. These changes are not found, for example, in the 1759 London edition, which was copied from an early set of stolen Geneva proofs (those proofs having a text setting that was prior to the revisions), but earlier text or not, this Geneva edition was published prior to the London edition). Similar convolutions abound with the other 1759 editions, but, the sorting out, and prioritization, are now untangled beyond contention. Candide abides as the epitomic tour de force, steadier than the north polar star. It's the philosophical fable of the French Enlightenment, and the genotype of irony without exaggeration, and it sings out, in an angelic voice, that light hearts live long. Repeat after me, and remember it well. Light hearts live long! near fine.

         All the Works of Epictetus, which are now Extant; Consisting of His Discourses, preserved by Arrian, In Four Books, The Enchiridion, and Fragments. Translated from the Original Greek, By Elizabeth Carter. With An Introduction, and Notes, by the Translator.

      Dublin: Printed for Hulton Bradley. 1759 - FIRST IRISH EDITION. 8vo, 202 x 122 mms., pp. [vi], xxxvii [xxxviii text. xxxix - xlii list of subscribers], 446 [447 - 453 Index, 454 - 456 Appendix], contemporary calf, spine richly gilt in compartments, red leather label. A fine copy. Elizabeth Carter (1717 - 1806) was educated by her father, Rev. Nicolas Carter (1688 - 1774), and she first appeared to be a very slow learner. But a determined one: Judith Hawley in her ODNB entry comments that she, " resorted to various extreme measures. She used to employ a sexton to wake her between 4 and 5 a.m. by pulling a string attached to a bell hanging at the head of her bed. To keep herself awake late at night she used to wrap wet towels about her head, chew green tea, and take snuff, until she was both addicted to snuff and painfully vulnerable to debilitating headaches for the rest of her life. By these means she first learned Latin and Greek, then Hebrew, French, Italian, and Spanish. Later in life she also taught herself Portuguese and Arabic." She preferred her scholarship to the domestic duties expected of females, writing to Catherine Talbot in 1775 she complained that "Whoever that somebody or other is, who is to write the life of Epictetus, seeing I have a dozen shirts to make, I do opine, dear Miss Talbot, that it cannot be I." Samuel Johnson also made a famous remark about her ability to make a pudding [sic]. I forbear. This was the only edition to be published in Ireland in the 18th century.

         The Theory of Moral Sentiments.

      London: for A. Millar, and A. Kincaid and J. Bell, in Edinburgh, 1759 - Octavo (203 × 122 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, skilfully rebacked with original spine compartments laid down, red morocco label to style, sides with gilt roll border. Corners restored, first and last leaves tanned in margins from turn-ins, closed tear repaired to leaf C7 without loss, scattered light foxing and a couple of marginal chips, occasional pencil side-ruling and marginal markings; a very good copy. Complete with half-title and errata on last leaf; pp. 317-336 omitted, as issued, text and register complete. First edition, published in April 1759 with a recorded "print run of 1,000 copies" (Sher, Early Editions of Adam's Smith's Books, 13). Smith's first book and his later Wealth of Nations demonstrate "a great unifying principle Smith's ethics and his economics are integrated by the same principle of self-command, or self-reliance, which manifests itself in economics in laissez faire" (Spiegel). Smith's famous phrase is first used here that would be repeated in the later work: that self-seeking men are often "led by an invisible hand without knowing it, without intending it, to advance the interest of the society" (Part IV, Chapter 1). "The fruit of his Glasgow years The Theory of Moral Sentiments would be enough to assure the author a respected place among Scottish moral philosophers, and Smith himself ranked it above the Wealth of Nations . Its central idea is the concept, closely related to conscience, of the impartial spectator who helps man to distinguish right from wrong. For the same purpose, Immanuel Kant invented the categorical imperative and Sigmund Freud the superego" (Niehans, 62). Goldsmiths' 9537; Higgs 1890; Kress 5815; Tribe 1; Vanderblue, p. 38.

         Kritische Einleitung in die Geschichte und Lehrsätze des alten und neuen Musik.

      Berlin, Lange, 1759 - 6 Bll., 246 S., 4 Bll. (Register). 1 Kupfer-Porträt und 8 Kupfertafeln. Erste Ausgabe. - Friedrich Wilhelm Marpurg (1718 - 1795) "war eng verbunden mit den damals am Berliner Hof oder in seiner Nähe tätigen Musikern wie Johann Joachim Quantz, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, den Brüdern Benda und Graun, Johann Philipp Kirnberger, Johann Friedrich Agricola und Christian Gottfried Krause. Einige von ihnen hatten J. S. Bach nahegestanden. M. war der erste, der die Berliner Musik publizistisch zur Geltung brachte. In den wenigen Jahren, in denen er sich der Musik widmen konnte, hat er erstaunlich viel geleistet. Er hat seine Landsleute mit den Grundsätzen von musikalischer Theorie und Praxis sowie mit den seinerzeit bedeutenden Problemen bekannt gemacht. . Seine monographischen Arbeiten verfolgten, darin den künstlerischen Aktivitäten der Berliner Schule nahe, volksbildnerische Absichten. Marpurg behandelte nahezu alle Gebiete der Musiktheorie: die physikalischen und arithmetischen Grundlagen der Musik, die Temperatur, den Generalbaß, die Kompositionslehre und die Fuge, den Gesang, das Klavierspiel, die Manieren sowie die Geschichte der Musik" (NDB XVI, 2135 f). - Das vorliegende Werk behandelt die Musik der alten Griechen. Marpurg beruft sich besonders auf Aristides Quintilianus. Er untersucht besonders die Metrik, Rhythmik und Melsodik der griechischen Musik und bringt auch ein "Exempel von der griechischen Composition" und einen Exkurs über die Instrumente der alten Griechen. - Vorsatz mit alten hs. Notizen. Etw. gebräunt und fleckig. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - +43 316 829552 *** /// *** Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 8°.

         Essai sur l'administration des terres.

      Paris: chez Jean-Thomas Hérissant,, 1759. 2 works in 1 volume, octavo (200 x 122 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label to spine, compartments and raised bands elaborately decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers, edges red. Engraved head- and tailpieces. Bookplate and Bibliotheque d'Hauteville library ticket to front pastedown. With the contents page repositioned after the avertissement. Spine ends and corners bumped, extremities lightly rubbed, hinges cracked but firm, endpapers a little marked and browned with contents lightly foxed, a very good copy. First and only edition of this pseudonymously authored treatise on agricultural reform originally attributed to Francois Quesnay by Barbier and published one year after the appearance of Quesnay's hugely influential Tableau économique. As a result of the statements made within, which emphasise the importance of agriculture to the national economy and strongly support contemporary Physiocratic doctrines, it was wrongly assumed to be authored by Quesnay. It is scarce in commerce and OCLC locates only one copy in institutional holdings (Libris Consortium Stockholm). Essai sur l'administration des terres is bound together with a first edition L'art de cultiver les peupliers d'Italie by Pelée de Saint-Maurice, published in Paris in 1762. This short treatise provides readers with advice on cultivating the poplar tree which was introduced in France in 1745 and quickly became the preferred tree for river and canal banks.

         Planespheres celestes

      Artist: Lapie Pierre M ( - 1870) ; issued in: ; date: ca 1828 1759 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Centerfold restored; - size (in cm): 46 x 61; - description: Map shows the miky-way of our galaxy in two hemispheres.;In Meteorologica Aristotle, wrote that the Greek philosophers Anaxagoras and Democritus proposed that the Milky Way might consist of distant stars. However, Aristotle himself believed the Milky Way to be caused by the ignition of the fiery exhalation of some stars which were large, numerous and close together; and that the ignition takes pace in the upper part of the atmosphere, in the region of the world which is continuous with the heavenly motions. The Neoplatonist philosopher Olympiodorus the Younger criticized this view, arguing that if the Milky Way were sublunary, it should appear different at different times and places on Earth, and that it should have parallax, which it does not. In his view, the Milky Way was celestial. This idea would be influential later in the Islamic world.;Actual proof of the Milky Way consisting of many stars came in 1610 when Galileo Galilei used a telescope to study the Milky Way and discovered that it was composed of a huge number of faint stars. In a treatise in 1755, Immanuel Kant, drawing on earlier work by Thomas Wright,speculated (correctly) that the Milky Way might be a rotating body of a huge number of stars, held together by gravitational forces akin to the Solar System but on much larger scales.The resulting disk of stars would be seen as a band on the sky from our perspective inside the disk. Kant also conjectured that some of the nebulae visible in the night sky might be separate galaxies themselves, similar to our own. Kant referred to both the Milky Way and the extragalactic nebulae, as an island universes, a term still current up to the 1930s.; -vita of the artist: Pierre M. Lapie (1779 ñ 1850) was a French cartographer and engraver. He was the father of cartographer Alexandre Emile Lapie. Lapie was a Colonel in the French army, where he worked in the corps of topographical engineers. Lapie worked closely with his son and published works together and individually. The work of Lapie and his son was influential on German commercial map makers in the 19th century. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
