Item Description: A Basle [Bâle], chez Christophe Revis, 1732 - A Londres et se vend à Paris, chez Michel-Estienne David & Antoine de Heuqueville, 1732. 3 vol. reliés en 1 fort vol. au format gd in-12 (178 x 114 mm) de xvi - 472 pp. et 1 f. n.fol. ; 1 frontispice gravé n.fol., 80 pp. et 1 f. bl. Reliure ''anglaise'' de l'époque de plein veau glacé moucheté blond, filet à froid encadrant les plats, dos à nerfs orné de doubles caissons d'encadrement dorés, larges fleurons dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin havane, titre doré, double filet doré en queue, dentelle dorée sur les coupes, toutes tranches rouges. Edition en partie originale (suivant la première de 1731, également publiée par les soins de Christophe Revis). L'Histoire de Charles XII est complète de ses deux parties (séparées par un feuillet blanc non folioté), ici reliées en un volume à pagination continue. Elles sont suivies des Remarques historiques et critiques de La Motraye. Lesquelles, malgré une mention de ''nouvelle édition corrigée et augmentée'', sont données par Quérard comme originales - concomitamment à celle de Londres. Elles s'ouvrent sur un joli portrait-frontispice gravé figurant le souverain. ''Cet ouvrage est d'un tel intérêt, la narration en est si simple et si rapide, le style si coloré et attachant, qu'on le lut pendant longtemps comme une oeuvre romanesque. Ce que narre ici Voltaire paraît tenir autant de la fiction que de la réalité. Le génie du poète de La Henriade se retrouve dans les principaux passages de cette prose élégante et chaude, qui semble aussi bien être un poème héroïque qu'une belle page d'histoire''. (in Le Petit, Bibliographie des principales éditions originales, p. 538). L'histoire de Charles XII constitue un tournant important dans la carrière de Voltaire puisqu'elle est le premier ouvrage historique de l'auteur. L'idée lui vint pendant son exil anglais, après sa rencontre avec le baron Fabrice, un familier du roi suédois. Charles XII exerçant alors une véritable séduction sur Voltaire (''Homme unique plutôt que grand homme, dira-t-il de lui, admirable plutôt qu'à imiter») et fasciné par la personnalité étonnante de cette figure historique et contemporaine, c'est alors que Voltaire décide d'en esquisser le portrait. Débarrassée de la versification contraignante de l'épopée, la «geste» de Charles XII tient à la fois de la dramaturgie et du reportage, fait de témoignages et de «choses vues». Après avoir obtenu le privilège autorisant son impression, le manuscrit est aussitôt confié aux soins d'un éditeur. Revenant sur leur décision, les autorités le firent pourtant retirer de la vente, craignant un incident diplomatique avec la Pologne où régnait encore Auguste II, jadis fort malmené par son voisin du Nord. Voltaire laisse ici entrevoir en son admiration pour les «souverains civilisateurs» à travers le portrait qu'il fait de Pierre le Grand (il y reviendra longuement dans son Histoire de l'Empire de Russie sous Pierre le Grand) mais s'indigne aussi et surtout devant les atrocités dont sont capables les hommes, fussent-ils de grands rois. Barbier IV, Dictionnaire des ouvrages anonymes, 664-f - Bengesco I, Bibliographie des oeuvres de Voltaire, 1260 - Quérard IV, La France littéraire, p. 510 Cioranescu III, Bibliographie de la littérature française du XVIIIème, 64391 - Brunet V, Manuel du libraire et de l'amateur de livres, 1364. De la bibliothèque Breil de Pontbriand, avec timbre à sec répété. Dos légèrement épidermé. Deux petits manques superficiels affectant le second plat. Très rares rousseurs dans le texte. La disposition de 4 feuillets d'Arguments est pour le moins erratique : ceux-ci ont été placés à la suite de la Préface. Bookseller Inventory # 9834

Schwerpunkte seiner Reisebeschreibung sind Italien, Deutschland, Skandinavien, das Osmanische Reich und das nördliche Schwarzmeergebiet." (Griep-Luber). Mit Karten und Plänen sowie schönen Tafeln, teils Frühwerke von William Hogarth, u.a. von griechischen und türkischen Volksfesten und -bräuchen, sowie erlesenen orientalischen Kunstschätzen. Die Bände 1 und 2 von bemerkenswerter Provenienz: Das Wappensupralibros trägt den Wahlspruch "Roi ne suis, ne Prince, ne Duc, ne Comte aussi, je suis le Sire de Coucy". Die Familie de Coucy aus der Picardie wurde einigermaßen populär durch das Buch von Barbara Tuchman "Der ferne Spiegel", in dem sie die Geschichte des 14. Jahrhunderts entlang der Biographie Ihres Protagonisten Enguerrand de Coucy VII. (1340-1397) erzählt. - Komplizierte Tafelkollation, nach Schiötz (mit der besten verfügbaren Kollation) häufig "verket er ukomplette plansjer". Vorhanden in Band 1 und 2 die Karten A-D und die numerierten Tafeln 1-39 (Tafel 5 nn., inkl. zweimal Nr. 6, 7&7A, 17A&B, 26A, 33/1&2, 36&36B - letztere Schiötz unbekannt) ohne Nummern 26 B und 30. Zu Beginn von Bd. 1 fehlen 4 Blatt Subskribenten. Im Supplement fehlen außer dem gestochenen Titel vermutlich 1 Zwischentitel vor Textbeginn sowie die num. Tafeln 3 & 4. - Cox I, 77-78; Paulitschke 686 (nur Bd. 1-2); Schiötz 567 a&d; Estreicher XXII, 600 f. und Lipperheide Cl 6-7 (beide nur Band 3 wie vorliegend und franz. Ausg. für Bd. 1-2); vgl. Blackmer 946 und Griep-Luber 764 (beide nur Band 1-2 in franz. Ausg.). - Scarce first edition of La Motrayes main work in 2 vols, translated from French manuscript and published 4 years earlier than the common French edition. Collating against Schiötz (who is ignorant of pl. 36B) we have 4 folding maps and 43 (of 45, lacking 26B and 30) engr. plates, mostly folding or double-leaf. "The plates are of particular insterest and include many signed by Hogarth, which form part of his early work." (Blackmer). Lacking also 4 leaves subscribers' list. Added is the quite rare supplement (1732) in English and French with an account of La Motraye's travels in Eastern and Northern Europe with 7 (of 9) engr. plates amd maps (lacking an engraved and a half-title and 2 plates). Vol. 1 and 2 of important provenience: The family De Coucy became quite popular through "A Distant Mirror" by Barbara Tuchman. Tuchman tells the story of the 14th century along the biography of Enguerrand de Coucy VII. - A few tears to folding plates. 2 corners of main work restored, else a clean and broad-margined copy in contemp. calf, worn, rebacked. The supplementary vol. somewhat narrow-margined, slightly browned, inobtrusive water-staining to few quires, inscription cut out from title. This volume bound in contemp. calf, slighty rubbed. Together 3 vols. 5000 Gramm. Buch. Bookseller Inventory # 803141
