        Le commerce et le gouvernement.

      Jombert et Cellot, 1776. Due parti in un volume in 12° (mm 165); pelle marmorizzata coeva, dorso a nervetti con filetti in oro, tassello in marocchino rosso con titolo in oro, tagli rossi, risguardi in carta marmorizzata (cuffie e cerniera posteriore restaurate); pp. (4), 273, (1 bianca) + pp. (4), 180. Foro con perdita della parola ''Abbé'' sul primo fontespizio, per il resto ottima copia. Edizione contemporanea all'originale, una delle tre pubblicate nello stesso anno della prima. Le tre edizioni sono riconoscibili sulla base di una serie di differenti scelte editoriali: la prima edizione ha paginazione continua e l'errata a p. IV; la seconda ha paginazione continua, ma senza l'errata, in quanto gli errori sono stati corretti nel testo; infine la presente divisa in due parti, senza errata ma con errori parzialmente corretti. Anche se Condillac ottenne la tacita approvazione di stampare il testo a Parigi, Le commerce venne comunque edito con luogo di stampa Amsterdam. Confiscato dalla Chambre Syndicale, ne fu bloccata la vendita. La terza parte, annunciata alla fine del secondo volume, non fu mai pubblicata. L'edizione del 1772 citata da Higgs (5396) e ripetuta da Kress è senza dubbio un'edizione fantasma. Si tratta di un testo importante, in cui Condillac espone le sue idee economiche ed anticipa alcune moderne teorie mercantili e commerciali. Dal punto di vista teorico Condillac isola il valore, lo scambio ed il prezzo e formalizza una teoria del valore basata sull'utilitá individuale e su un valore di scambio derivante da un confronto tra utilitá soggettive. Jevons considera questo lavoro ''originale e profondo'' oltre che un lavoro filosofico affascinante perché nei primi paragrafi si ritrova forse la prima affermazione esplicita della vera associazione tra valore e utilitá. H.D.MacLeod ha considerato questa opera infinitamente superiore a quella di Smith. Biblioteca Einaudi, 1209. Goldsmiths', 11373. Tchemerzine, II, p. 482. Palgrave, I, p. 385..

        Histoire de Messieurs Pâris ouvrage dans lequel on montre comment un Royaume peut passer dans l'espace de cinq années de l'état le plus déplorable à l'état le plus florissant, par Mr de L ****

Edition originale rare, imprimée à Lausanne. C'est la principale source biographique concernant l'activité des frères Pâris (surtout Pâris-Duverney et Pâris de Montmartel), financiers de la Régence. Les quatre frères Pâris s'enrichissent en créant un réseau de relations dans les hautes sphères du royaume sous les règne de Louis XIV et de Louis XV. Sous Louis XV, après la mort du vieux cardinal de Fleury, ils bénéficient de l'influence de Madame de Pompadour. Joseph Pâris-Duverney lança l'idée en 1725, d'une caisse d'amortissement de la dette publique, et créa de nouveaux impôts. Son frère, Pâris de Montmartel, fait marquis de Brunoy, devint Garde du Trésor Royal. Ils s'opposèrent aussi au système de John Law. ¶ INED n°2978 - "célèbres financiers de la Régence... et leurs opérations de ....1716 à 1728" - Kress S.4861 - Einaudi II. 3539 - Coquelin & Guillaumin II.329

        The Life of Petrarch. Collected from "Memoires pour la Vie de Petrarch".

      London, Printed for the Author [Susannah Dobson] and sold by J. Dodsley. 1776 - The Second Edition. In two Volumes (complete set). Octavo. Volume I: Frontispiece engraving by Isaac Taylor ("The first Interview of Petrarch and Laura"), XXX, 544 pages, 11 pages Index ; Volume II: 556 pages, 11 pages Index. Hardcover / Original full calf-bindings in excellent modern solander box. Front board of Volume One cleanly detached. Volume II firm. Both volumes stronger rubbed. Interior in very good condition. Some fraying to titlepage. Heraldic bookplate "Utile Dulci". Old Bookshop sticker from J.E.Dickinson in Sheffield. Francesco Petrarca (July 20, 1304 – July 19, 1374), commonly anglicized as Petrarch, was an Italian scholar and poet in Renaissance Italy, and one of the earliest humanists. Petrarch's rediscovery of Cicero's letters is often credited for initiating the 14th-century Renaissance. Petrarch is often called the "Father of Humanism". In the 16th century, Pietro Bembo created the model for the modern Italian language based on Petrarch's works, as well as those of Giovanni Boccaccio, and, to a lesser extent, Dante Alighieri. Petrarch would be later endorsed as a model for Italian style by the Accademia della Crusca. Petrarch's sonnets were admired and imitated throughout Europe during the Renaissance and became a model for lyrical poetry. He is also known for being the first to develop the concept of the "Dark Ages." This standing back from his time was possible because he straddled two worlds - the classical and his own modern day. (Wikipedia) ___________________________ Susannah Dobson née Dawson (died 1795) was an English translator, from the south of England. The daughter of John Dawson of the parish of St Dunstan, London, she married in 1759 a physician, Dr Matthew Dobson of Liverpool, who died at Bath, Somerset in 1784. They had three children. Frances Burney mentions that in 1780 Susannah Dobson was ambitious to get into Mrs Thrale's circle, but the latter was not keen: "Mrs Dobson persecutes me strangely as if with violent & undesired Friendship; yet Mrs Lewis says She is jealous." A modern view of what Thrale wrote in Thraliana is that it implied Dobson was a lesbian. Burney wrote of her, "Though coarse, low-bred, forward, self-sufficient, and flaunting, she seems to have a strong masculine understanding." Dr Dobson had become Mrs Thrale's physician. Susannah Dobson died 30 September 1795, and was buried at St Paul's, Covent Garden. (Wikipedia)

His expedition threatened to turn into a military fiasco. His small squadron was battered by storms and too few of his crew survived the journey round Cape Horn to man even the largest ship properly. Anson limped across the Pacific to Macao, where he was able to have the Centurion repaired and find more crew. Finally in June 1743 he achieved a single but substantial victory, capturing a Spanish treasure ship, the Manila galleon, off the Philippines, and returned to England in June 1744 a rich man. "Anson's voyage is remembered as a classic tale of endurance and leadership in the face of fearful disasters, but to the British public of 1744 it was the treasure of the galleon, triumphantly paraded through the streets of London, which did something to restore national self-esteem battered by an unsuccessful war" (ODNB). The keenly-awaited book became a best-seller, running through numerous editions in its full or abridged form and being translated into several European languages. It is now agreed that the ostensible author, Richard Walter, took the initiative for publishing, gathering names of subscribers and profiting handsomely from it, but that Benjamin Robins completed the editorial task. A particularly appealing copy - possibly large paper, distinctly wide-margined.

        De la legislation, ou principes des loix

      s.e, 1776. Due volumi di cm. 16, pp. viii, 264; iv, 264. Legatura coeva in piena pelle maculata con titoli e ricchi fregi in oro al dorso, piatti inquadrati da triplice filetto; tagli marmorizzati. Fenditure a due cerniere (piatti comunque ben solidi), minime mancanze alle cuffie, mancanza di doratura in corrispondenza dei titoli del primo volume. Esemplare perlatro internamente fresco e ben conservato Gabriel Bonnot de Mably (1709-1785), pensatore politico francese, fratello del Condillac, va annoverato tra le principali figure della politica estera del Settecento francese. Nelle sue opere sviluppò concetti politici che a molti osservatori parvero come principi anticipatori delle idee rivoluzionarie, in realtà la visione sociale di Mably era suggerita più da istanze morali che da una visione complessiva di risistemazione socio-economica. Ebbe comunque modo di schierarsi con decisione contro il dispotismo illuminato dei fisiocrati caldeggiando lo sviluppo di una monarchia sorretta da istituzioni repubblicane. Quest'opera traccia i principi di una riforma della legislazione mirata alla creazione di un sistema giuridico meno condizionato dalla forte ingiustizia sociale che caratterizzava la Francia del tempo. Non comune edizione originale. Cfr. Kvk; Camus 121..

        [COOK] Andrew Kippis : autograph letter, signed.

      Sydenham, Kent, 17 June 1776. Entire letter, manuscript in ink on single folio sheet of wove paper watermarked G.R., 360 x 230 mm, written on 1 1/4 sides, addressed to 'The Rev. Mr. Parry, at Cirencester, Gloucestershire', signed at the foot 'Your most affectionate Brother and obliged Servant, And. Kippis'; remnants of wax seal; original folds; complete, clean and legible. Andrew Kippis (1725-1795), a nonconformist clergyman and prolific writer, was the author of the first biography of James Cook, The life of Captain James Cook (1788). The present letter, addressed to fellow writer and clergyman Joshua Parry in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, is dated less than three months before the recipient's death. Kippis' letter deals with a biographical sketch of Allen Bathurst (1st Earl Bathurst) to be published in the Biographia Britannica, which Parry had written and which Kippis was editing. Kippis writes of his hope that by this contribution 'the Biographia Britannica will be considerably improved; though I am sensible, at the same time, how imperfect it will still be' - a testament to his commitment to expanding the biographical corpus. Joshua Parry (1719-1776) was a Welsh nonconformist reverend and writer, who famously read a sermon at the funeral for Allen Bathurst, 1st Earl Bathurst, in September 1775, and contributed the biographical sketch about him which was published in Biographia Britannica. Parry was a lifelong friend of Bathurst, whom he had met at Cirencester after his appointment as Minister of the Presbyterian church founded by Alexander Gregory in 1662. He was to remain in Cirencester until his death on 6 September 1776.

Buschendorf verspricht allerdings hier: *ganz neu, unter beihilfe der neuesten, besten deutschen, englischen und französischen Schriftsteller bearbeitet.* Im Vorwort wird dargestellt, dass große Teile des Werkes um- und neu geschrieben wurden. Neben dem Werk von La Fosse sind eingegangen die Werke von: Johann B. von Sind, Wissenschaften eines Stallmeisters Eberlein, Der vollkommene Pferde-Kenner Eisenberg, wohleingerichtete Reitschule Kersting Pferde zu beschlagen Mogalla, Krankheiten der Pferde u.a. Von A wie Aas bis Z wie Zwölffingerdarm. Stiche von Berggold, Hoppe, Funche u.a.

Moreover, the seasonal verses at heads of calendar pages in the earlier state have been replaced in the later state with verses from Hale's "The sum of religion." Though the legend is rubbed in the present copy, it contains the original verses as in the first state.

        Des Pierres précieuses et des Pierres fines, avec les moyens de les connoitre & de les évaluer

      2 p.l., xii, 124, [4] pp. 12mo, cont. blond calf (two corners a tiny bit worn), triple gilt fillet round sides, spine finely gilt with chevrons "à la grotesque," red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: F.A. Didot & De Bure, 1776. First edition of this introduction to precious stones written for collectors and jewelers; according to the author this is the first complete treatise on precious stones. Dutens describes the chief varieties including diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, etc. He has also provided an interesting table at the end of current prices of diamonds of increasing carats. In the Preface, Dutens reviews the writings on precious stones of earlier authors including Pliny, Theophrastus, Boyle, and Romé de l'Isle. This work is a notable work in typography as well: it is the first book printed by François Ambroise Didot, l'aîné (1730-1804), who promoted technical innovation in printing and papermaking and introduced the new form of typographical measurement, the "point Didot." We quote from the 1783 catalogue of Mérard de Saint-Just: "Ce petit Traité est le premier Ouvrage sorti des presses de M. Didot l'aîné, où l'on ait aperçu cette supériorité de talents qui l'a mis tout de suite au-dessus de tous ses confrères de France, d'Italie, d'Allemagne et de Hollande, et qui l'associe dès lors à la gloire de Baskerville, et surtout à celle d'Ibarra."-from André Jammes' wonderful Les Didots catalogue, no. 73. Dutens (1730-1812), diplomat and man of letters, edited the works of Leibniz (1768), was a fellow of the Royal Society, and was historiographer to the King of England. An uncommonly fine copy. &#10087; Sinkankas 1819-"Dutens' work did provide useful accurate information and received acclaim and wide distribution.".

        The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.

      6 vols. London: Strahan, and Cadell, in the Strand 1776-88. With engraved portrait and 3 engraved maps of which 2 are folded. A few leaves weakly foxed otherwise well-preserved, rebacked copy with coloured labels and richly gilt on spines, wide margins. With handwritten name on flyleaves. Bindings nicely restored. * Vols. 1-3 in second edition.Edward Gibbo [1737-1794] was an English historian, writer and Member of Parliament. This, his most important work, was first published in six volumes between 1776 and 1788 and is known for the quality and irony of its prose, its use of primary sources, and its open criticism of organised religion. Yet his works are considered outdated today as Edward Gibbon's central thesis, that Rome fell due to embracing Christianity, is no longer accepted in academia today. [Wikipedia].
