Description de l'article : "Paris" [i. e., Geneva], "1751-1772" [i.e., 1771-1776]., 1776. Folio. 17 text vols., 11 plate vols., 5 vols. of supplements. Without the 2 index vols. Altogether 33 vols. with 3129 plates (doubles and triples counted as such) and the engraved frontispiece. Contemp. marbled calf, gilt, with double spine labels. First edition, second printing, issued simultaneously with the final volumes of the original edition and even reproducing its predecessor's imprint down to the original years of publication. It can be distinguished from the original edition only by the missing accent over the word "Mathématique" and two additional composition errors in the title, for which reason the trade usually offers it as the first edition: indeed, among the more than fifty "Paris" folio editions of the "Encyclopédie" auctioned during the last decades, not a single one is identified as the Geneva reprint, although this edition's press-run was fully half as great as that of the Paris original. - The supplement volumes, which "had no formal connection with the original 'Encyclopédie' and involved a new group of contributors" (Darnton 33), are here present in the 1776-1777 edition published in Paris and Amsterdam, which is generally treated as part of the Paris first edition. Lough 15-21 & 52-110. Darnton 34. Cf. PMM 200. N° de réf. du vendeur 45189

Description de l'article : Amsterdam Briasson D. Le Breton Durand Paris G. Cramer for C. J. Panckoucke Faulche Geneva Neuchatel and MM Rey -80, 1751. Thirty-five volumes, folio, half-titles (except in text vols. 8-17), woodcut device on title-pages, some woodcut initials, head and tailpieces, 7 folding letterpress tables, a few woodcut illustrations, engraved frontispiece in volume 1, 2796 engraved plates including some double-page or folding; occasional spotting and browning, sometimes heavier, contemporary uniform mottled calf, spines gilt in compartments, red edges, marbled end-papers, some volumes with slight variant tooling, 4 volumes rebacked to style, neat restoration to extremities of spines. A complete example of this 'monument in the history of European thought; the acme of the age of reason; a prime motive force in undermining the ancien regime and in heralding the French Revolution; a permanent source for all aspects of eighteenth century civilizations' (PMM). The finest, most extensive and famous encyclopaedic work on the sciences, arts and professions of the 18th century, and arguably the most influential piece of French literature, the Encyclopedie originated with the publisher's suggestion for a translation of Chambers Cyclopaedia into French. Diderot (1713-84), however, persuaded him to undertake a new work along the same lines but greatly extended in size and scope, which would employ all the active writers of its time, all the new ideas and all the new knowledge circulating in the cultured class in France but needed further dispersal in order to be effective. The importance of this work is to be found in the contributions of over 200 philosophers, writers, scientists and jurists of the era of Enlightenment, like Voltaire, Montesquieu, Rousseau, Buffon, Marmontel, Necker, Condorcet, Turgot and others. The greater part of the 71818 entries however, was written by the editors Diderot and d'Alembert (1717-83), followed by Baron Holbach (who contributed about 400 articles). Moreover, the Encyclopedie is famous for its fine and accurate engravings. It contains, according to the title-pages, 3129 plates because double, triple or quadruple folding plates are counted as 2, 3, or 4, adding up to the amount of 2796 plates (as in our copy). "The purpose of an encyclopaedia is to assemble the knowledge scattered over the surface of the earth; to explain its general plan to the men with whom we live and to transmit it to the men who come after us; in order that the labours of centuries past may not be in vain during centuries to come; that our descendants, by becoming better instructed, may as a consequence be more virtuous and happier and that we may not die without having deserved well of the human race." (Diderot, quoted from the article on encyclopaedias in the present work). The Encyclopedie takes for granted the justice of religious tolerance and speculative freedom and asserts the democratic doctrine that the main concern of the nation's government should be the lot of the common people. It is also an exaltation of scientific knowledge on one hand and peaceful industry on the other. In 1759 the Encyclopedie was formally suppressed but work went on although D'Alembert withdrew, leaving Diderot to work alone. Since it had a very large number of contributors, there was no narrowly sectarian viewpoint although there was a convergence of aim. As an anthology of enlightened opinions on politics, philosophy, and religion, the Encyclopedie is one of the most important works of modern thought. It is also remains a landmark in the history of massive publishing projects. The full set comprises 35 volumes published over almost 30 years. The first seven volumes, with articles by Voltaire, Rousseau, Montesquieu and many other figureheads of the Enlightenment, were published in Paris under a royal privilege, which was however withdrawn in 1759, after which the project was closed down. With the help of Madam Pompadour, among others, the remaining volumes were printed secretly with a fictitious imprint. The plate volumes have a different history, since they were not considered being subversive; they were were published in Paris between 1762-72. The supplement volumes were published in one edition only but in two issues, one with a Paris imprint, the other with an Amsterdam imprint, edited by Jean Baptiste Rene Robinet (1735-1820). The supplementary volume of plates has the imprint 'Amst. and Paris' and the final two-vol. index was published in 1780 and edited by Pierre Mouchon (1733-97). This is the first edition with some volumes published in Geneva. Brunet II, 700; En Francais dans le texte 156; Norman 637; PMM 200; Palgrave I, 577. N° de réf. du vendeur 97512

Esemplare completo, sia di testo che di tavole.SECONDA EDIZIONE ITALIANA E TERZA ASSOLUTA. L'Encyclpédie è stata a giusto titolo definita il best-seller del secolo dei lumi. Dopo la prima edizione, che apparve a Parigi, Neuchâtel e Amsterdam fra il 1751 e il 1780, si susseguirono decine di edizioni in Francia e altrove, in formati differenti e sovente accompagnate da note e commenti aggiuntivi (cfr. H.-J. Martin, Histoire de l'édition française, Paris, 1984, II, p. 193 e sgg.; inoltre F. Venturi, Le origini dell'Enciclopedia, Torino, Einaudi, 1963, passim).In Italia furono due le edizioni settecentesche dell'Encyclopédie, entrambe pubblicate in Toscana negli anni immediatamente seguenti la stampa parigina. La prima fu quella edita a Lucca fra il 1758 e il 1776 per le cure di Ottaviano Diodati, che vi aggiunse numerose note di suo pugno. L'impresa di Livorno (1770-1778) si deve invece a Giuseppe Aubert, tipografo ed editore di origine francese attivo a Livorno a partire dal 1760 circa, che fu in stretta relazione e in corrispondenza con illustri illuministi del tempo, tra cui F. Algarotti, P. Verri e di C. Beccaria, il quale nel 1764 gli affidò la stampa di Dei delitti e delle pene. Anche Aubert volle integrare il testo con note di mano di intellettuali italiani del tempo e incluse nella sua edizione gran parte del commento del Diodati."All'indomani della pubblicazione parigina dei primi due volumi dell'opera di Diderot e d'Alembert (1751-1752) si assiste in Italia ad un crescendo di dibattiti. Al di là del particolare indirizzo che prenderanno le polemiche importate d'Oltralpe, comunque, i periodici italiani assumono in questa prima fase un atteggiamento ambiguo nei confronti dell'Encyclopédie e dei philosophes. Ciò che può essere considerato come un riflesso delle esitazioni dei milieux eruditi italiani nei confronti delle idee veicolate dall'opera di Diderot e d'Alembert; e che trova conferma nella scarsa attenzione che gli organi di informazione concedono alla prima crisi che investe l'Encyclopédie nel 1752. A ravvivare il dibattito anche in Italia, però, interviene di lì a poco la diffusione di una traduzione del Discours préliminaire di d'Alembert che si deve all'illustre patrizio genovese Agostino Lomellino. Quest'ultimo tralascia i riferimenti alla struttura dell'Encyclopédie riportandone solo la parte relativa alla classificazione delle scienze e ai loro progressi che era stata elaborata da d'Alembert, il philosophe la cui formazione matematica lo renderà il punto di riferimento per la diffusione.

Oeuvres de Denis Diderot, publiées, sur les: DIDEROT, Denis.

Description de l'article : Adams, Bibliographie des oeuvres de Denis Diderot A6 (pp. 98-109); CCfr 3 copies); Diderot, Contes (1963), item 12 (p. 206); Johansson, Études de Denis Diderot (1927), p. 197 (cf. p. 30). First edition of the works of Denis Diderot (1713-1784), published fourteen years after his death. Diderot, one of the widest ranging and most creative minds of the Enlightenment, is best known as the motive force behind and author of many articles in his 28-volume Encyclopédie (1764-1772), which occupied him for more than twenty years, but he published works on a wide range of subjects before and after the Encyclopédie. The present 15 volumes, published from Diderot's manuscripts (including correspondence) and totalling about 7500 pages, therefore covers plays, novels and poetry as well as essays on philosophy, mathematics (including music), literature, art and religion, and includes correspondence with numerous men and women, including Voltaire. Although his Encyclopédie articles are not included, many were based on or carried further in publications included here, and 220 pages of vol. III are devoted to the Encyclopédia. Diderot's Encyclopédie, though enormously influential, left him in financial straits. The French government banned it and the French establishment shunned him as a radical, but from 1773 to his death he worked under the patronage of Catharine the Great of Russia, who bought his library and paid him to oversee it in Paris, giving him the freedom to pursue his literary and scholarly interests.In very good condition, with only some minor foxing, an occasional quire very slightly browned and an occasional minor marginal defect. With a small hole in the spine of one volume, but the bindings are otherwise also very good. N° de réf. du vendeur K8FG3X3S7BMN

Ziel war, das zumeist nur mündlich überlieferte oder unter dem Primat der Kirche stehende Wissen zu sammeln, verfügbar zu machen und das dahinterstehende System der Wissensorganisation aufzuzeigen. Führende Denker der Aufklärung wie Rousseau, Voltaire, Holbach, Montesquieu und Concordet verfassten die insgesamt rund 72.000 Artikel. Die Encyclopédie wurde 1751 begonnen, 1772 beendet und bis 1780 durch fünf Ergänzungsbände und zwei Registerbände ergänzt. Auch heute noch in Zeiten des Internets und des fast schon inflationären Wissens versprüht die Encyclopédie ihren Charme, nicht zuletzt durch ihre detailreichen Kupferstiche aus Anatomie, Handwerk, Physik und Astronomie, Architektur, Geographie und Mathematik. Der Encyclopédie kommt als Summa der Aufklärung epochale Bedeutung zu. Für die Geschichte aller Wissensgebiete ist sie ein unentbehrliches Quellenwerk. N° de réf. du vendeur 64026

Impressive cross-sections of shafts and images men at work in the processing halls and foundries make this one of the most visually compelling suites from Diderot's Encyclopédie. However, these are not only attractive depictions of eighteenth-century mining and Earth Sciences, they are a comprehensive guide to the operation and construction of the machines and tools employed. Diderot and Goussier, 'the third Encyclopédist', who together visited many factories and workshops around France and Europe, meant the Encyclopédie as a textbook, and as a way of propagating new ideas and methods. For instance, one of the largest sections in this suite is devoted to the famous Pont-Péan lead mines in Brittany, where innovative hydraulic machines had recently been installed. Further plates demonstrate the arts of underground surveying and geometry, the renowned slate quarries of Anjoun, and the refining of mercury, copper, gold, tin, zinc and cobalt. No other publication had devoted this amount of attention to the mec. N° de réf. du vendeur 122529

Of particular note are those on Antiquité by Edme Mallet, Antiquité en architecture by Jacques-François Blondel, and two articles on Antique, one by Marc-Antoine Eidous.Although an abbot and primarily concerned with theology, Mallet also wrote on history and literature. Having studied at the Barnabites College of Montargis, Mallet became a key figure in the success of the Encyclopédie. Dying before the project was completed, Mallet still managed to produce over a thousand articles. Although his views are often criticised as restricted and narrow-minded, he acted as a safeguard for the project which could have been suspended if the religious articles had proved too controversial. His article on antiquities is a general overview, whereas Blondel's contribution focuses on architecture. After studying with Gilles-Marie Oppenord, Blondel earned a living as an engraver and writer. He became a well-regarded architect, also publishing many of his lectures and contributing to major works such as Augustin-Charles d'Aviler's Cours d'Architecture (1737). Founder of the École des Arts, he inspired many young architects, such as his fellow encyclopédist Lucotte. Praised for his Traité de la Décoration des Edifices, he was also an accomplished engraver of plates. He had already produced his own encyclopedia of architecture, so was well-accustomed to the practises of the encyclopedist. With numerous creative abilities, as displayed in his work at the Metz Cathedral, he wrote nearly five hundred articles for the Encyclopédie. Marc-Antoine Eidous was a French writer and translator born in Marseilles. Despite his relatively basic education, he was a tireless writer and translator, focusing mainly on philosophy, travel and agriculture. After serving as an engineer in the Spanish army, he devoted much of his time to literature. Best known for his work on heraldry, he contributed around 450 articles. His writing has been criticised for a lack of elegance, but he gives a very clear summary of the antiquities in this entry.The plates include Greek and Roman architecture, Judaic antiquities, armour, clothing, furniture and many other subjects. Of particular note are the plates showing the Pantheon, the Colosseum as it would have been when built and as a ruin, the Arch of Constantine, the Circus of Maxentius (known as the Cirque de Caracalla until the 19th-century), the forum in ruins, Trajan's column before the bronze figure of St. Peter was added in 1587, and St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Also displayed are some items of jewellery and ceremonial dress, alongside other ornaments.There are over twice as many plates in the supplement. The suite begins with a double plate of Noah's Ark, and covers the Tower of Babel, the Pyramids and the Sphinx at Giza. Further plates are plans and reconstructions of Palmyra, Baalbeck, and Athens before the extensiv. N° de réf. du vendeur 122533
