(MIRABEAU, H.G.DE)
Errotika biblion.
Rome [?Paris, Neuch‚tel], l'Imprimerie du Vatican, 1783. 8vo. W. woodc. vignet on pr. title, some simple woodc. head-pieces. Nice 19th cent. polished hlf .clf., spine in 6 compartments w. gilt floral ornaments. [n2, A-M8]. (IV, 192 pp.). (Top edge gilt.). (Very nice marbled endp.). (Overall some light foxing.). (a few lvs. w. some brown spots.). Rare first ed.: Mirabeau, french revolutionary, offers us here 10 philosophical reflections on the (erotic) mores and customs of ancient times as opposed to those of modern man [i.e. French 18th c.]. One of the most important aspects in the background of these reflections is of course man's curtailed sense of liberty and freedom to act, over the course of hundreds of years. A link with the Revolutionary Movement may well be surmised. Brunet vol. VI (Table), 18010: Barbier II, 172: Hain-Got. vol. IV, 549: Very good copy of this rare booklet. Not many have appeared at auction in the last few decades. A pirated edition Rome 1783 exists, but collates IV, 188 pp. only; a further edition appeared in 1792 and an annotated version in 1833 Brussels.; Weller, 220: Gay, vol. II, 150: Englisch, comp. 460: Kearney, Erotic literature, p. 80: Kearney, Private case 1190:Famous work printed many times. The book was written in prison and '... machte zweifellos nicht nur der Belesenheit und dem Scharfsinn Mirabeaus, sondern auch der Elastizitšt seines Geistes alle Ehre' [Hain-G]: According to Englisch the first edition exists in three variants. Kearney informs us that the book was written while de Mirabeau was imprisoned in the Castle of Vincennes and that it was attacked with vigour by the authorities, leaving only 14 copies extinct, a figure which (judging by the number of copies offered through the internet) seems quite unlikely. It is said that the entire print run was confiscated by the police in 1796 and destroyed. (This may concern the edition 1792, the year in which the publication was officially put on the index librorum prohibitorum). 'A further edition was ordered to be destroyed in 1826 by the Royal Court of Paris, and for "outrages against public morality and good manners" there were two other prosecutions in, 1856 and 1868' [Kearney]:

First edition. DSB III, p. 104 - 106: Cassini, 1677 - 1756. Astronomy, geodesy. 'In 1695 Cassini accompanied his father on a journey through Italy, where he made numerous scientific observations ... he travelled next to Flanders, The Netherlands, and England making various geodesic and astronomical measurements, ... while visiting these countries he became acquainted with Newton, Halley, and Flamsteed and was admitted to the Royal Society. In 1700 - 1701 Cassini participated in his father's project of extending the meridian of Paris as far as the southern border of France. ... In 1718 Cassini managed to complete the determination of the meridian of Paris, ... in 1722 he published the important work "De la grandeur et de la figure de la terre", in which he confirmed his support for the hypothesis of the elongation of the terrestrial ellipsoid and opposed that of its flattening, which was defended by the supporters of Newton and Huygens.': De La Lande, 373: From the preface: ' "La Grandeur & La Figure de la Terre" resultent des observation faites dans les Voyages qui ont ťtť entrepris en divers temps par Ordre du Roy, pour dťterminer, depuis l'extremitť Meridionale de la France jusqu'ŗ son extremitť Septentrionale, la Ligne Meridienne qui passe par l'Observatoire Royal de Paris. C'est pourquois nous diviserons ce Traitť en deux Parties, dont la premiere contiendra les Observations faites depuis Paris jusqu'aux Pyrenťes; & la seconde, les Observations depuis cette mÍme Ville jusqu'ŗ l'extremitť Septentrionale du Royaume.': Cassini's publication led to heated discussions and debates regarding the hypothesis of the elongation of the terrestrial ellipsoid and that of its flattening. ' ... the young Newtonians of the Academy arranged for the sending of geodesic expeditions to Peru and to Lapland in order to obtain measurements of arcs of meridian of latitudes sufficiently different to permit a settlement of the dispute.' (DSB III, p. 105): The engraved frontispiece depicts the allegorical figure of Minerva holding a picture of the young Louis XV (The lower part of the picture frame signed 'Rigaud pinxit'), a skeleton in the shade behind Minerva ... the death of Louis XIV a few years before. The 5 engraved folding maps (4 large folding maps covering France; 1 double page map of the whole of France;), 4 signed 'De Berey sculpsit'. The cartouche on the double page map reading 'Carte de France ou sont marquez les triangles qui ont servi a determiner la meridiene de Paris'.: A very good copy.
