         Golden Eagle

      London 1766 - This originally hand-colored, folio bird engraving is from Thomas Pennant's "The British Zoology". The work was published in 1766 in London by J. and J. March. The drawings were by P. Paillou, G. Edwards, et. al. and the etchings by P. Mazell. --- Thomas Pennant was a leading naturalist in England in the 18th century. He was a fellow of the Royal Society and counted amongst his confidants Carl Linnaeus and Sir Joseph Banks. Pennant's work was noted as the first to publish color illustrations of birds in a work that attempted to describe all of the British species, many life-size. The mammals included in the work was also a rare occurance for an 18th century work. --- Overall Good to Very Good. There is light text offset. There may be a a few light marks to be expected with age, but most imperfections can be seen in the picture provided. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.

Son of the distinguished Genoese painter Giovanni Agostino Ratti, Carlo Giuseppe had studied in Rome with Placido Costanzi (1756-1759), and there became a close friend and follower of Anton Raphael Mengs and Johann Joachim Winckelmann, both of whom were formative influences on his interest in histori­ography, and his desire to reform and rejuve­nate the Genoese artistic tradition through the academy. Ratti's principal publication was the 1768-1769 revision of Soprani's Vite de pittori (1674), still a critical text for the mod­ern study of Genoese art and artists. A second edition ('Nuovamente ampliata, ed accre­sciuta in questa seconda Edizione dall'Autore medesimo') was published in 1780, accompanied by a guide to the Riviera (Descrizione delle pitture, scolture, e archi­tetture, ecc., che trovansi in alcune città, borghi, e castelli delle due riviere dello stato Ligure).

         Del fulmine, e della sicura maniera di evitarne gli effetti dialoghi tre di Carlo Viacinna a Matteo Allagia.In Milano, per Federico Agnelli, 1766.

      In Milano, per Federico Agnelli 1766 - Cm. 22, pp. 1 c.b. (6), clvi (1) + 1 c.b. Una nota ms. coeva posta al frontespizio attribuisce l'opera ad Anastasio Cavallo. Bross. coeva in carta decorata con motivi floreali. Mancanze di carta al dorso, perlatro esemplare fresco e marginoso. In barbe. Atanasio Cavalli (1717 ca. - 1798 ca.), di Asti, nel 1764, anno pubblicò le Lettere di Filalete accademico libero. Frate con il nome di Atanasio di S. Luigi insegnò Teologia in un convento carmelitano di Torino. Si occupò dello studio dello spiritismo e dell'occultismo e pubblicò un libro sull'argomento: Delle apparizioni ed operazioni de' Spiriti. La sua attività scientifica si basò soprattutto sulle osservazioni astronomiche, meteorologiche e in genere naturalistiche. Questo interessantissimo trattato dedicato ai fulmini si colloca nell'ambito di questa particolare inclinazione. Sempre attraverso i torchi di Agnelli Cavalli pubblicò nel 1769 un'opera dedicata al Vesuvio. Nel 1770 chiese ed ottenne la secolarizzazione e si trasferì a Roma dove fu docente di fisica e poi di filosofia morale all'università gregoriana. Rarissima edizione originale. Cfr. Iccu che però attribuisce l'opera a Carlo Viacinna. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Commentaries on the Laws of England, in Four Books

      1766. London, 1766. 1766, 1768, 1769. Vol 1: 2d ed.. London, 1766. 1766, 1768, 1769. Vol 1: 2d ed. Handsome Early Edition of Blackstone's Commentaries Blackstone, Sir William [1723-1780]. Commentaries on the Laws of England, In Four Books. Oxford: Printed at the Clarendon Press, 1766, 1766, 1768, 1769. Four volumes. Volume II has copperplate "Table of Consanguinity" and fold-out "Table of Descents." Quarto (10-1/2" x 8-1/2"). Contemporary calf, gilt fillets and cat's-paw decoration to boards, gilt spines with raised bands and lettering pieces, gilt tooling to board edges, marbled endpapers, a few early repairs to joints and corners, speckled edges. Light rubbing and some minor scuffs and scratches to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, joints cracked or starting, corners bumped and somewhat worn. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, occasional light foxing. A handsome set. $3,500. * First edition of Volumes II, III and IV, second edition of Volume I. The most influential publication in the history of modern Anglo-American law, the Commentaries on the Laws of England is based on a course of lectures delivered at Oxford University. Because they were not intended for aspiring practitioners, they described general principles rather than practical specifics. Sensitive to the systematizing trends of the day and the prestige of the natural sciences, he described the common law as an intricate, well-designed system akin to Newton's mechanistic universe. The first edition of Volume I was published in 1765. By the time Volume II was published Volume I had been re-published in its second edition; both were issued in 1766. (A revised Volume II was published in 1767.) Due to this publication history there are many so-called "mixed" editions today. Volumes III and IV were later revised, along with the first two volumes, for the fourth edition, 1770. Eller, The William Blackstone Collection at Yale University 1, 2.

Exemplaire sur beau papier vergé, intérieur frais malgré quelques feuillets roussis. Plein veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné de caissons et fleurons dorés, piece de titre et tomaison de maroquin rouge, double filet doré sur les coupes, roulette intérieure. Charnières frottées, 3 mors fendus sur quelques centimètres, petits accrocs aux coiffes et aux pièces de tomaisons, coins usés. Reliure de l'époque. Cet ouvrage est en fait une traduction française annotée du livre que le jurisconsulte Littleton composa en 1475. "Dans ses Institutes, Littleton est celui de tous les jurisconsultes anglo-normands, dit Houard, qui a le mieux approfondi les lois françaises, telles qu'elles ont été données à la nation par Guillaume le Conquérant. Il porte le scrupule, selon son commentateur Coke, jusqu'à distinguer en chaque article de son recueil ce qui est la commune loi, c'est à dire la loi amenée de France par Guillaume, d'avec ce qui a été institué pour l'explication de cette loi par les chartes, statuts ou édits postérieurs."

Edition originale rare de ce texte érotique des plus curieux. Papier fort de Hollande. Une jeune damoiselle pas si naïve et un amoureux un peu niais, un pucelage qui est un rat le tout en vers fort bien troussés. Ce petit fascicule pour ainsi dire introuvable aujourd’hui est fort recherché des bibliophiles écrit Adolphe Van Bever dans son livre Les conteurs libertins du XVIIIe siècle (Paris, 1904, p. 96). « La jeunesse de Cailhava (1731-1813) fut très-dissipée : un extérieur agréable, un caractère aimable et gai lui procurèrent beaucoup de succès dans le monde provincial ; mais les plaisirs et l'art de l'escrime ne l'occupaient pas tellement qu'il ne trouvât le temps de s'exercer dans la carrière du théâtre qui devint la passion de toute sa vie. » (Biographie Universelle Michaud).
