        Begebenheiten des Enkolp. Aus dem Satyricon des Petron übersetzt. Erster (- Zweyter) Band. In einem Band. Mit einem Titelkupfer und zwei (wiederholten) gestochenen Titelvignetten.

      Rom (d.i. Schwabach, Mizler) 1773 - 48, 220 S.; 256 S. Halbpergamentband d.Zt. mit handschriftl. Rückentitel. Decken berieben, Pergament etwas angestaubt. - Erste Ausgabe, erster Druck mit der May 1772“ datierten Vorrede (Schulte-Str. 2a; Goedeke IV,882,5a; Weller I,106). – Erste Titelei deutlicher, sonst nur vereinzelt etwas fleckig. Gestochenes Exlibris „Johann Hermann Schnobel“ a.d. Innendeckel. J.H.SCHNOBEL (1727 Lübeck 1802), Musikdirektor und letzter Kantor Lübecks, dazu Historiker, dessen Archiv und lokalgeschichtliche Werke noch heute als wichtige Quellen geschätzt werden. Von seiner Hand stammen die sauber und sehr gut lesbar geschriebenen Anmerkungen zu der Übersetzung a.d Vorsatz sowie die den gesamten Petronius-Text begleitende, zeilengetreue lateinische Originalfassung auf eingeschalteten Blättern. - Interessantes (Provenienz-) Exemplar des seltenen ersten Druckes dieser frühen, als skandalös empfundenen erotischen Schrift HEINSEs (Langewiesen 1746 – 1803 Aschaffenburg). „HEINSE unternahm die Übersetzung auf Veranlassung des Hauptmanns GÜNTHER VON LIEBENSTEIN im Januar 1772. . Nach seiner Entzweiung mit LIEBENSTEIN suchte HEINSE die Übersetzung zu unterdrücken. Der Hauptmann ließ das Buch jedoch wider den Willen des Verfassers drucken .“ (Schulte-Str. S.218). HEINSE schrieb dazu an WIELAND: „Das Abscheulichste darinnen ist von der schänderischen Hand des Herrn Hauptmann, der stündlich an meiner Seele, wie ein LAVATER und JAKOB BÖME der Priapus arbeitete. Die Übersetzung wird mir so lange ich lebe ein Ärgernis seyn.“ Während z.B. GLEIM, SCHEFFNER und GOETHE die Übersetzung mit Begeisterung aufnahmen, beklagte WIELAND den „unglaublichen Frevel“, den HEINSE durch seinen Enkolp begangen habe. Ein zweifelhaftes Lob spendete SCHUBART: „PETRONIUS mußte schmutzig seyn, weil er von dem Schmutz handelte. Sein glücklicher Übersetzer HEINSE hat ihn noch übertroffen.“ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        COMPENDIO DOS PRINCIPIOS DA GRAMMATICA HEBRAICA,

      - NO QUAL SE EXPLICÃO BREVE E CLARAMENTE AS REGRAS FUNDAMENTAES DESTA LINGUA POR Fr. FRANCISCO DA PAZ, Religioso da Congregação da Terceira Ordem de S. Francisco de Portugal, Professor de Escritura, e de Lingua Hebraica no Convento de N. Senhora de JESUS de Lisboa. PARA O USO DAS ESCOLAS DA MESMA CONGREGAÇÃO. [Vinheta com as armas reais de Portugal]. LISBOA NA REGIA OFFICINA TYPOGRAFICA. ANNO MDCCLXXIII [1773]. In 4º [de 21x13,5 cm] com 158 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele com rótulo vermelho, nervos e finos ferros gravados a ouro na lombada, com as casas fechadas, Corte das folhas marmoreado. Ilustrado com 1 desdobrável extratexto, apresentando tabela impressa com quadrilongos tipográficos e caracteres móveis hebraicos, com as 7 conjugações desta língua, e intitulada: «Taboa, em que se mostra toda a variedade, que há em a conjugações dos verbos hebraicos, assim perfeitos, como defectivos, e quiescentes, para se entregarem à memória com maior facilidade». 1ª edição. Existem 2 exemplares na BNP. Exemplar com diversos títulos de marcas de posse, nomeadamente um título de posse manuscrito do Brabante, na Holanda; um ex-lis armoriado com o Cruzeiro do Sul como móvel heráldico e o mote «Nomen Honor Que Meis» de Joaquim Ignacio da Cruz Sobral, do Concelho de Sua Majestade, do qual existe no acervo da BNP um retrato gravado por João Silvério Carpineti. Origem do exemplar no espólio da Biblioteca do Palácio Sobral, hoje a antiga Sede da Caixa Geral de Depósitos, no Calhariz, em Lisboa, que foi mandado construir entre 1770 e 1780 por Joaquim Ignácio da Cruz Sobral, tendo origem na compra de um velho prédio propriedade de D. Lázaro Leitão Aranha, rico e erudito principal da Sé, que nesse lugar fez reunir a famosa Arcádia (1764). Neste Palácio deram-se belas festas e concertos a que concorria toda a Corte. Entre elas ficou célebre a esplendida festa dada por ocasião do nascimento da princesa da Beira D. Maria Teresa, no dia 29 de Abril de 1793, onde cantaram artistas estrangeiros especialmente convidados para o evento: Todi, Violanti, Angelleli, Ferracuti entre outros. Isto no mesmo dia em que se inaugurava o Teatro de São Carlos, também ele em homenagem à primeira filha de D. João e de D. Carlota Joaquina. Inocêncio III, 30: «FR. FRANCISCO DA PAZ, Franciscano da Congregação da terceira Ordem, Lente de Escritura e Professor da língua hebraica, que aprendera com o maronita D. Paulo Hoder. Nasceu em Aveiro em 1731. Sendo chamado pelo bispo de Beja, Cenáculo, para a sua diocese, foi por ele empregado no magistério do Seminário, ainda vivia em 1798. E. 1645) Compendio dos principios da grammatica hebraica no qual se explicam breve e claramente as regras fundamentaes desta lingua etc. Para uso das escholas da mesma Congregação. Lisboa, na Regia Offic. Typ. 1773. 4.º de 158 pag., e no fim uma taboa de conjugações. Foi reimpresso em Coimbra, na Imp. da Universidade 1826, com a indicação de «segunda edição, correcta e accrescentada com muitas regras necessarias para a intelligencia da dita lingua.» Esta declaração não é de todo exacta, segundo acaba de constar-me por informação devida ao actual professor de hebraico no Lycêo de Coimbra, o sr. dr. Joaquim Alves de Sousa (de quem tratarei no lugar competente): pois que a dita segunda edição só se avantaja á primeira na correcção e esmero tipográfico, na melhor redação de algumas regras, relativas á conjugação dos verbos irregulares, e da tradução portuguesa de varias palavras e frases hebraicas, que não vinham traduzidas na primeira. Não há porém as regras novas, que parece inculcar aquela declaração. Fr. Francisco da Paz compôs mais algumas obras em hebraico e latim, as quais se podem ver mencionadas no Catalogo dos Escriptores da Ordem Terceira por Fr. Vicente Salgado, manuscrito, que existe na livraria do extinto convento de Jesus». Language: Português / Portuguese Location/localizacao: M-15-B-24 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Histories.]

      Birmingham: John Baskerville,, 1773. Quarto (292 x 230 mm). Contemporary continental quarter calf, red morocco label, spine richly gilt, brown paper-backed sides, red and green dotted endpapers. Very light rubbing to covers, minor creasing to some page corners, internally clean. A highly attractive copy. First edition. John Baskerville (1706–1775) was perhaps the most important typographer of the 18th century, whose typeface remains in use today. Preceding the private press movement by over a century, Baskerville took considerable care in every aspect of the design and production of his books, with the aim of creating a beautiful and accessible text. Opting for utility and clarity, he employed a clear and bold typeface without unnecessary flourish and ornamentation, a design choice which acted as a major influence on the course of book history. The present work was one of Baskerville's last productions before his death two years later. This copy includes both the half-title and the final blank, which were often lost in the binding process. Provenance: from the Saxe-Teschen Library, though unmarked as such, with shelf mark on pastedown, and with the bookplate of Henry Tschudy (1882–1961), the owner of the German printing company H. Tschudy & Co.

Antikvarien och sekreteraren i Antikvitetsarkivet Carl Reinhold Berch (1706-77) var som numismatiker kritisk mot föregångarnas tidiga myntbestämmelser och konstaterade bl.a. att ingen svensk myntning förekommit före kristendomens ankomst till Sverige. Något han dock ej vågar stå för i denna beskrivning, där svenska mynt fortfarande dateras till förkristen tid. Ett supplement och en fortsättning utgavs av Silverstolpe 1825. "Detta arbete öfverträffar vida Brenners Thesaurus, och är för alla Mynt-älskare oumbärligit", ansåg Warmholtz.

"Johnson introduced into English lexicography principles which had already been accepted in Europe but were quite novel in mid-eighteenth century England. He codified the spelling of English words; he gave full and lucid definitions of their meanings. and he adduced extensive and apt illustrations from a wide range of authoritative writers."

Pages 10-12 list no fewer than 28 publications in Arabic, many of which (such as Scialac's and Sionita's 1613 version of the "Doctrica Christiana") are still considered milestones of Arabic typography. Prints in other languages such as Chaldaean, Persian, Syriac, and Ottoman Turkish bear further witness to the unrivalled excellence of the Propaganda Press in the field of Middle Eastern typography.

        Recuëil van alle de placaten, ordonnantien, resolutien, instructien, lysten en waarschouwingen, betreffende de admiraliteyten, convoyen, licenten, en verdere zee-saaken.

      The Hague, Jacob, Paul & Isaac Scheltus, 1701-1773. - 4to. 11 volumes. With a folding table in vol. 8. Contemporary vellum, numbered in manuscript on the spine, red sprinkled edges. Complete set of a compilation of all resolutions, ordinances, treaties and other statements and motions by the States General of the Dutch Republic, regarding all maritime matters. The collection starts in 1597 with the establishment of the five admiralties in the Dutch Republic and ends in 1771, although a few resolutions from the period of Habsburg rule (the oldest from 1487) have been included. Most of the resolutions concern trade, including the trade with the Baltic, East and West Indies, North Africa and the Turkish Empire, but also fishery, the equipage of battleships and the administration of the colonies in the West Indies, including slavery. Several tables give interesting information regarding the costs of the building and outfitting of ships and the formation of regiments for the colonies. One very large table presents the tariffs for all sorts of products, including numerous types of wood, glass, porcelain, fish and furs. - A collection of resolutions had been previously published in two volumes in 1689 and 1694. In 1701 an expanded volume 2, present in the current collection, was published, with volume 3 following in 1721. Interestingly, a new and much expanded volume 1 was published in 1730. The present set, published during a course of over 70 years, includes these expanded editions of volumes 1 and 2. All indexes have been bound in the corresponding volume, instead of in a separate index volume. - With the bookplates of the collector Jan Willem Six de Vromade (1874-1936), a descendant of the politically and culturally significant Six family, in the first volume, and of the Dutch politician and historian Leonard de Gou (1916-2000) in all volumes. Bindings slightly smudged. Somewhat browned and stained throughout, most notably volume 8, and with a small tear in the front flyleaf of volume 6. A very good set of an important source for Dutch maritime history. Elliott, Maritime History in the John Carter Brown Library (revised ed.) 1093.

        Mappa Geographica Poloniae ex novissimis quot quot sunt. Mappis specialibus composita in parte maiores.

      Artist: Homann Erben ca ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: ca1773 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 45,5 x 50; - description: Map shows total Poland with Lithuania and Ukrainia.; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

      The Hague and Paris, Delalain 1773 - With frontispiece, 2 figured titles, 99 large vignettes, and 99 tailpieces, all engr. after Marillier by de Ghendt, Longueil, Née, Launoy, Baquoy, a.o. XXII pp., 1 leaf, 176 pp.; 1 leaf (bound after p. 184), pp. 177-309, (3) pp. 8vo. 20th-century brown morocco, spine in 6 compartments richly gilt, boards surrounded by triple gilt fillets, double gilt fillet on outer edges, wide gilt inner dentelles, edges gilt, marbled paste-downs and flyleaves (first inner hinge reinforced, minimal fading to spine and lower cover). The Hague and Paris, Delalain, 1773-(75). A luxurious edition of Dorat's "Fables", a copy on Dutch paper with ample margins. With the carton replacing pp. 161/62 and with all typographic characteristics to identify it as the definitive edition as opposed to the reimpression of the same year. "In delicacy of execution, as well as in the beauty of the embellishments, the book rivals 'Les Baisers', and must be regarded as Marillier's masterpiece" (Lewine). According to Fürstenberg, Marillier represents best of all the style of illustration of the period of Louis XVI. His vignettes and ornamental pieces are always fine and graceful without becoming too mannered. The illustrations accompanying Dorat's "Fables" are considered to be the artist's most beautiful work. The present definitive edition was preceded by a provisional edition which only included a few of Marillier's engravings in their first printing state. Though the publishing date of the book is 1773, the vignettes in part II are dated 1774 or 1775, so presumably this was completed in 1775 only. - The engr. figured title to part II is misbound, the preceding frontispiece is lacking. - Quérard, La France littéraire II, 577; Cioranescu 25113; Cohen/de Ricci 313-15 (cites the title differently); Lewine 150f.; Sander 508; Fürstenberg, Das französische Buch im 18.

        A Voyage from England to India, in the Year MDCCLIV, and an Historical Narrative or the Operations of the Squadron and Army in India, under the Command of Vice-Admiral Watson and Colonel Clive... Also, a Journey from Persia to England, by an Unusual Route.

      London: Edward and Charles Dilly, 1773. 4to. xii, 506 pp. b/w folding maps and plates. From 1753 to 1757 Ives was Surgeon aboard the "Kent," flagship of vice admiral Watson in the East Indies. His book includes an account of Geriah Fort (now Vijaydurg), a notorious pirate stronghold. Watson and Clive seized the town and burned the pirate ships. Ives' "unusual" return route took him through Basra, Baghdad, Mosul, Aleppo, Cyprus and Leghorn. The work also includes appendices on military and tropical medicine, medical botany, and epidemiology. According to the DNB "Ives' presence at many of the transaction he describes and his personal intimacy with Watson gives his historical narrative an unusual importance, and his accounts of the manners and customs of the inhabitants, and of ther products of the countries he visited, are those of an enlightened and acute observer." - DNB Vol 29, p. 79.

        A Journal of a Voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty's ship, the 'Endeavour'. Faithfully transcribed from the Papers of the late Sydney Parkinson, Draughtsman to Joseph Banks, Esq. on his late Expedition, with Dr Solander, round the World

      London, Printed for Stanfield Parkinson, the Editor, 1773. Imperial quarto, xxiv (last blank), 212, [2] (errata and directions to the binder) pages plus a frontispiece portrait, a map and 26 plates. Recent antique-style full calf, retaining the early sides (displaying suitable signs of the times) and the old endpapers (a little blemished), and probably retaining the early boards, judging by the profile of the corners; minimal foxing; some offsetting from the plates (as usual); one plate with a sealed tear in the blank margin; a clean, crisp, wide-margined copy, in excellent condition overall. An unauthorised account of Cook's first voyage by Sydney Parkinson, the young natural history draughtsman engaged by Joseph Banks. '[Parkinson] died at Batavia of dysentery 26th January, 1771, on the homeward voyage. His brother Stanfield, to anticipate Hawkesworth's account of the voyage, hurriedly published this journal. After a few copies had appeared the further issue was stopped by an injunction in Chancery, on the score of infringement of Dr Hawkesworth's rights, and of material belonging to Mr Banks' (Hocken, page 13). The superb engraved plates that illustrate this lavish publication (chiefly portraits of South Sea islanders and views from the voyage) were produced from drawings done by Parkinson in his spare time and claimed by Stanfield on the return of the voyage. Parkinson's work on the voyage, in particular his numerous botanical drawings and watercolours, was retained by Banks, and formed the basis of his 'Florilegium'.

        Traité des fiefs de Dumoulin, analysé et conféré avec les autres feudistes.

      Paris, Valade 1773 - in-4, [4] ff. n. ch. (faux-titre & titre, dédicace à Molé de Champlâtreux), iv-717 pp., [2] pp. n. ch. de privilège, maroquin vieux-rouge, dos à nerfs orné de guirlandes et caissons fleurdelisés dorés, armes au centre, pièce de titre verte, encadrement de triple filet doré sur les plats, double filet doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure (reliure de l'époque). Unique édition. Si l'on en croit la longue notice que Dupin consacre, pour une fois, à ce titre, l'ouvrage parut sans l'épître dédicatoire à Molé de Champlâtreux, qui, après de multiples examens par la censure, la lieutenance de police, etc. aurait fortement déplu au chancelier Maupeou. De fait, les exemplaires des dépôts publics (dans la mesure où on daigne en donner une collation .) semblent ne pas la comprendre. Notre exemplaire la comporte parce que c'est celui du dédicataire lui-même ; est-ce l'unique ? il est tentant de le penser, mais, dans ce domaine, il ne faut jurer de rien . Ayant déjà présenté en 1769 un Eloge de Du Moulin, Pierre-Paul-Nicolas Henrion de Pansey (1742-1829), spécialisé tôt dans les matières féodales, donna logiquement ce commentaire très complet sur le principal ouvrage de son devancier dans ce domaine. Bientôt, la Révolution allait renvoyer cette première partie de sa carrière dans l'histoire du droit, et il dut, sous le Directoire et le Consulat, réorienter radicalement son oeuvre théorique. Dupin, 1574. Précieux et bel exemplaire aux armes du dédicataire Mathieu-François Molé de Champlâtreux (1705-1793), premier président du Parlement de Paris, démissionnaire en 1763 par suite d'un refus de courtiser Madame de Pompadour. Il est possible que cet exemplaire de présent n'ait cependant jamais été remis à Molé, ce qui expliquerait sa transmission en-dehors de la famille (cf. infra). O.H.R. 260 (variante). L'ouvrage passa ensuite dans la collection de Edmond Lafond (1821-1875, vignette ex-libris), homme de lettres passablement abondant, lequel, dans une note manuscrite, explique que l'auteur était ami intime de son grand-père, Jean-Marie Harlé d'Ophove (1765-1838).
