         Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("A. Rosetti / Cpllmstr").

      O. O. u. D. - 1½ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt (Wasserzeichen: doppelstrichige Antiquaversalien "SKW"). 4to. An einen nicht ermittelten Adressaten: "Wohlgebohrener sonders zuverehrender Herr! Gleich nach Eingange Ihres ersten Briefes, worinn uns die Hoffnung, Sie samt wehrtesten Frauen Gemahlinn bey eintrethenden Ostern hier bey uns zu haben, benommen wurde, entschlossen sich hiesige Herrschaft sich anderwärts eine Sängerin von Range zu beschreiben, die nun täglich erwarthet wird. Jetzt steht aber dahin, ob man wegen einem Engagement von beeden Seithen einig werden kan; voraus läßt sichs nicht bestimmen. Wollen sie mir erlauben, Sie nach Ostern von dem Außgange zu berichten? Um selbige Zeit wird auch die Wiedergenesung der Madame erfolgt seyn, und so kan sichs sehr wohl schicken, daß ich Sie bitte die Tour hieher zu machen. Halten Sie sich ja nicht durch diesen Vorfall zurückgesetzt; denn es war Nothwendigkeit eine Sängerinn, die Oster Musiken zu singen, zu haben; ausser diesem würden wir hier gern die Niederkunft Ihrer Frau Gemahlin abgewartet haben, um so mehr, da uns das vorzügliche Talent und übrige vortreffliche Eigenschaften derselben gar zu wohl bekannt sind. Wir wollen also die Sache noch nicht als decidirt ansehen - kurze Zeit wird entscheiden, ob ich das Vergnügen haben soll oder könne Sie samt Madame persönlich kennen zu lernen [.]". - Seit 1773 war Rosetti Kontrabassist in der Hofkapelle des Fürsten Kraft Ernst zu Oettingen-Wallerstein. In Paris wurde er gefeiert; er verkehrte mit Gluck und Piccinni. Nach dem Weggang Joseph Reichas wurde Rosetti 1785 zum Kapellmeister der Wallersteiner Hofkapelle ernannt und avancierte zu einem der beliebtesten Komponisten seiner Zeit: "Rosetti's contemporaries ranked him with Haydn and Mozart" (New Grove XVI, 206). Von wachsender Verschuldung geplagt, wechselte er 1789 an den Hof des Herzogs von Mecklenburg-Schwerin, der sein Gehalt verdreifachte.

         Fables nouvelles

      1773. DORAT, Claude Joseph. Fables nouvelles. Two volumes. [xxii], [2], 176; [177]-309, [3] pp. Illustrated with 2 engraved title-pages, 1 full-page plate (repeated), 1 title-page fleuron, 99 vignettes, and 99 culs-de-lampe all executed after designs by Pierre-Clément Marillier. 8vo., 204 x 131 mm, bound nineteenth-century calf-backed boards. A La Haye, Et se trouve à Paris: Chez Delalain, 1773. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, first issue, of Dorat's Fables nouvelles. Gordon N. Ray described this edition as an "eighteenth-century masterpiece of miniature illustration." Cohen-De Ricci claimed that this work remains the "chef-d'oeuvre de Marillier, sous le rapport de la finesse de l'exécution et de l'esprit qui règne dans tous les jolis sujets qui l'ornent." Pierre-Clément Marillier (1740-1808) was praised by Dorat for these delightful interpretations of the author's verse. It was with good reason that Baron Roger Portalis described this artist as "The Master of the Infinitely Small." Of the two-hundred and two engravings herein there are indeed many masterpieces in miniature. Lewine quite simply states that, "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." A very nice copy with fine impressions of all the plates. Lewine 150-151. Cohen-De Ricci 313-316. Ray, French 43 (with 4 reproductions). Portalis Les dessinateurs au XVIIIe siècle I, 367

         Principles Generaux et Raisonnes de la Grammaire Dixieme Edition

      Paris, Lottiin 1773 - Complete and in very good condition, small 8vo, xxiv (4 table), 525 (3). F.e.p. missing. A tide mark to the margins of page 497 to end but not effecting text. Bound in period full calf with gilt decorated spine. Marbled end papers with marbling extending to all sides of text block. An incredibly important work on French grammar and usage that went through many many editions in the 18th century. The English translation was also very popular, although it most likely didn't help that much. Ex Libris Alice Izard. Wife of Ralph Izard who was an American politician and served as President pro temp ore of the Senate in 1794. Alice, nee DeLancey, was from New York and was the niece of James DeLancey who served as chief justice, lieutenant governor, and acting colonial governor of the Province of New York. Alice and Ralph had 13 children between 1768 and 1792. (what else to do when the candle sputtered out?) They moved to Paris in 1776 where Ralph quickly was appointed commissioner to the Court of Tuscany by the Continental Congress in 1776. (He was recalled in 1779—something to do with the Italian Morals Police). Alice used this book to improve her French and although she kept confusing gerunds at least she didn't start a war.

      First printing of this edition made famous by Bret. Illustrated book of the famous portrait of Molière etched Cathelin Mignaud from the frontispiece of the first volume, 6 florets as well as 33 fine figures of Moreau Le Jeune. Undoubtedly one of the finest editions of Molière, "The sequence of figures Moreau is one of the estimated" (Cohen, 717). Pages titles in red and black. Full brown calf period. Back smooth ornate pedestal. Parts of title and volume number in red morocco. Golden caster on cuts. Triple gilt frames in dishes. Interior lace. Some corners very lightly bumped. Beautiful set comfortably established in a rich contemporary binding. This edition, much sought after for the quality of its artwork (Cochin Moreau was with one of the most loved illustrators of his day) is also good for the correction of the text that must be in the heat of Bret; it has in fact carefully revised texts based on the original editions; notes and comments, witness his work is no less interesting, and make this year one of the jewels among those of Molière.

         De natuurlyke historie der versteeningen, of uitvoerige afbeelding en beschryving van de versteende zaaken, die tot heden op den aardbodem zyn ontdekt: ... Uit het hoog- in 't nederduitsch vertaald door M. Houttuyn, met verscheide aanmerkingen.

      Amsterdam, J.C. Sepp, 1773. 3 volumes (bound in 4). Folio (445 x 275mm). pp. (4), xiv, 64; (4), 1-184; (2), 185-484; (4), 236, with 1 double-page handcoloured engraved plate 'Marmer-Groeve na by Solnhofen', some engraved head- & woodcut tail-pieces and 272 hand-coloured or colour-printed engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spines in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label, marbled sides (very minor restoration to spines). A fine copy of 'one of the best illustrated and most complete accounts on fossils...' (Landwehr 95). "The outstanding work of this period is undoubtedly that of Knorr and Walch in four volumes ... The first volume was written by the Nürnberg collector and artist, Georg Wolfgang Knorr (born 1705, died 1761), and the other three volumes were prepared after the death of Knorr by Professor Walch of Jena ..." (Zittel pp. 21-22). The rare Dutch edition of the German original 'Naturgeschichte der Versteinerungen' (Nuremberg 1768-1773) with the same beautiful plates. Volume II almost entirely concerns fossil shells. "It is hardly possible to exaggerate the beauty and fidelity of the representations of the fossils in his plates. No such illustrations had ever before appeared, and they have hardly been surpassed since. By delicate lines on the copper plates the most minute intricacies of structure are reproduced, and by thin washes of colour the tints of the original specimens are represented. His renderings of dentritic markings, landscape-marble, fossil plants, crustacea, crinoids, fishes and other fossils are admirable examples of the union of artistic workmanship with scientific accuracy ..." (Geikie, Founders of Geology, pp. 101-102). 'The extraordinary quality of the plates, representing the eighteenth-century continuation of the tradition of Dürer, led to an expansion of the work by Walch, as well as to French and Dutch editions... the detail and accuracy of Knorr's engravings not only made possible zoological classification but firmly established the distinction between fossils of organic and sports of nature' (DSB)./The books portrays and describes a.o fossils in the cabinets of famous collectors such as Walch at Jena, Adam Hildebrand at Naumberg, Jac. Theod. Klein, Johann Hermannus at Regensburg, S.R. Genzmer at Stargard, as well as the large collection of Casimir Schmidel.//Nissen ZBI, 2233; Ward & Carozzi 1285; Landwehr 95.

         The history of Ireland from the invasion of Henry II With a preliminary discourse on the antient state of that kingdom

      London: "T. Longman, and G. Robinson, and J. Johnson". 1773. "First edition, 3 volumes, 4to, early full tree calf neatly rebacked, old morocco labels and numbering pieces preserved; a very good, sound set. With the signature on the title pages of volumes I and II of Joshua Reynolds, the premiere portraitist of the eighteenth century. Covering the period from the invasion of Henry II in the 12th century to the capitulation of Limerick in 1691, Leland's history ""is written with judgment and care, and just discrimination"" (Kent, as quoted in Allibone, 1083). Armorial bookplates in volumes I and II of the Marquis of Thomond and Henry Labouchere, Baron Taunton, 1798-1869. Though still a good- margined copy, this has been trimmed, just touching Reynolds' signature in volume 1, and cropping the top of the signature in volume 2."

         Descriptions of some of the Utensils in Husbandry, Rolling Carriages, Cart Rollers, and divided rollers for land or gardens, mills, weighing engines, &c. &c. Made and sold by James Sharp, No 15, Leadenhall-Street, London; which may be seen at his manufactory, No 133, Tooley-Street, Southwark.

      Second edition (?), and a rare survival of an eighteenth century trade catalogue for a manufacturer of carts, agricultural machines and garden rollers. The plates show mostly agricultural machines, especially ploughs and hand-mills, but also garden rollers, a cart-roller, and carts (this plate is dated 1773). It includes a horse-hoe very similar to Tull’s original design, and a winnowing machine very similar to those still in use in the twentieth century. Apart from these products, Sharp also made weighing machines, anchors, trucks, and many smaller items such as axles and shafts.Agriculture, which was easily the largest source of employment in the eighteenth century, required advances in its technology in order to progress, and it was largely due to a lack of suitable machinery that Jethro Tull’s methods were slow to gain acceptance. This catalogue, probably among the first of its kind, shows some of the machinery and equipment that was available at the time.COPAC lists only two editions; another edition with only 28 pages and 16 plates, and with the imprint “Sold by Benjamin White...and Edward and Charles Dilly... ”, appeared in about 1777.Oblong 4to, 34 unnumbered pages and 19 engraved plates. Including the first leaf (printed title), and last leaf (docket title), woodcut on p. (29) of a “Common Stage”. Contemporary half calf (ends of spine and two corners a little worn), a beautifully preserved copy with original stab-holes visible in inner margin of some leaves, and a vertical crease down the centre (as intended, so as to show the docket title on the verso of the last leaf when folded). Contemporary armorial bookplate of Christopher Jeaffreson of Dullingham (Cambridgeshire).
