1720. Bon état, montée en passepartout, quelques défauts, papier légèrement jauni. Vue de l'incendie de Rennes en 1720, dessinée par Huguet, gravée par Thomassin. Né le 29 décembre 1679, Jean-François Huguet était un dessinateur et architecte rennais. Peu connu du grand public, son travail représente pourtant une source documentaire importante pour connaître la physionomie et l'histoire de la ville de Rennes. Ses dessins retracent l'histoire de la ville et de ses bâtiments. Né en 1679 et mort en 1749, Jean-François Huguet a exercé l'essentiel de sa carrière à Rennes. Il est issu d'une famille d'architectes de la région de Laval. Lui aussi a suivi cette voie, mais c'est surtout son œuvre de dessinateur que l'histoire retient. Elle constitue une source documentaire essentielle pour connaître la physionomie de la ville de Rennes au début du XVIIIe siècle. Quelques années plus tard, le 26 juin 1726, Huguet immortalise l'élévation de la statue équestre du roi Louis XIV, place du Parlement de Bretagne. En 2016, le Musée des Beaux-Arts avait organisé la première exposition consacrée à Jean-François Huguet. Le dessinateur est aussi un témoin des grands événements qu'a connus Rennes. En 1720, il représente, depuis la place du Parlement de Bretagne, l'incendie qui dévaste une grande partie de la ville. Gravure extrémement rare et recherchée. Etat : bon état général, papier légèrement jauni, quelques défauts visibles sur les photos, gravure montée en passepartout Dimensions de la feuille : 53,5 cm x 40 cm Je réponds à vos questions Envoi rapide et soigné Voyez mes autres ventes.

[Great Britain]: Ca 1720s. 214 blue-lined pages, paginated in manuscript, with the first 164 pages filled with mss entries. P. 1 with caption title, "A Collection of Medicinal Receipts." Approximately 20 lines per page, with ~ 10 words per line, for ~ 32,500 words total. The watermark found is a GR under a crown presumably for George Rex as Dr Patrick Bishop of Ely who died in 1707 is mentioned as 'late'. The date of compilation presumed to be sometime between 1707 and as soon after 1727 as would allow the [bulk of the] paper watermarked for George's reign to be fully used. 8" x 6-1/4". Period full vellum binding, with "1 1/2 R" inked to top of spine. General wear & soiling to binding. A VG copy. Item #48453 Here offered a bound, handwritten collection of recipes for medicines (e.g., "For the green sickness", "For the Dropsy" & "A Dyett Drink for the fistula") and food ("To Make Almond Puffs" & "Beef a la Daub"), as well as the occasional household technique (e.g., "To Kill Rats"). The hand throughout appears to be consistent, giving rise to the supposition this volume compiled entirely by one individual, regretably unidentified. Nevertheless, the volume provides a window into early 18th C home medicines & cookery, with a plethora of recipes recorded herein. Being asthmatic myself, I was especially drawn to the last cure recorded, that for Asthma, incorporating "Flour of brimstone, ginger, Senna powder & Honey", which has the concluding assessment... "This has perform'd great cures." I'm sold.

Oblong 4to (22.5 x 27 cm).

First and only edition of a very rare collection of 80 engravings and etchings, depicting exotic trees, other plants and animals from the East and West Indies, Africa and China. The species depicted include coffee, tea, balsam, tamarind and sycamore trees, guava fruit, litchi (labeled in Chinese characters), and lions, monkeys, snakes, fish, a manatee, Indians fishing with snakes, Chinese fishing with birds, and fictitious animals such as a unicorn, flying dragon, etc. The plates probably came from several sources, for they appear to be from different hands. Many of the botanical illustrations had appeared earlier in John Ogilby, Africa being an accurate description of the regions of Ægypt (1670) and Olfert Dapper, Description de lAfrique (1686). Van der Aa may have commissioned other plates himself, since some appear in his atlas La galerie agreable du monde, also from ca. 1720.

[WATERCOLOURS - COSTUMES]. HECKEL, Catharina SPERLING.
[Four young ladies in fancy gowns].[Augsburg, ca. 1725?]. Four drawings in brown ink, watercolour and coloured gouaches on vellum, highlighted with gold (each 5.9 x 9.0 cm). Each mounted in a later passe-partout with a gold border, in an ebonized wooden frame (23.5 x 20.5 cm). A matching set of four lovely and delicate watercolour drawings, each depicting a young lady in a fancy German costume, drawn and painted on vellum by the Augsburg artist Catharina Sperling Heckel (1699-1741). She learned painting and drawing from her father, the Augsburg goldsmith Michael Heckel, engraving from Johann Ulrich Kraus, and married the engraver Hieronymus Sperling (1695-1777) in 1725. It is not clear whether she made these drawings shortly before or shortly after her marriage. She is best known for her ca. 1728 miniature portrait of Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie), the young pretender to the English throne. She never recovered from the birth of her first child in 1741, dying within a few weeks. Each drawing shows a young German lady wearing a long gown and a cap or bonnet, but one also carries a hat. The four drawings differ in the style of the gowns and other elements.In very good condition. With a few small chips in the paint of the frame. Lovely watercolour costume drawings of four young German ladies, perhaps from a court wedding in the free Imperial city of Augsburg. Cf. Thieme & Becker XVI, pp. 208-209.

[DRAWING - OTTOMAN PORT]. [PEETERS, Johannes (Jan) (after)].
[Ladimistri nel' archipelago].[The Netherlands(?), ca. 1720?]. Oblong folio (19.5 x 31.5 cm). Pen and blue-black ink-wash drawing on laid paper, showing the city of Edremit, its harbour and fortifications, with an Ottoman and a Dutch(?) ship, and a lighthouse, in a brown thick-thin-thin border, signed in the border below right, but difficult to read (I. P. Sto...?, I. P. Ste...?). Framed (37 x 49 cm). A detailed ink drawing of the harbour of and fortifications of Edremit, an Ottoman port city on the west coast of Turkey. The drawing is made after Johannes Peeter's print Ladimistri nel' archipelago, originally engraved by Lucas Vorsterman the younger and first appearing 1664/65 in the series Diverse vis te[!] delli Dardaneli del' dtrecio come delle città e castelli nel archipelago. The series was published by Jacob (Jacques) Peeters (1637-1695), and the prints were engraved after drawings by his brother Jan (Johannes) Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes.Slightly browned and with a few small and mostly marginal stains. The foremost canon appears to have lost some of its ink, but the drawing is otherwise in good condition. The corners are damaged or discoloured from a previous mounting, far outside the border of the drawing.

Third edition of a famous collection of texts and plates satirizing the Englishman John Law, his Mississippi Company, and the international land and trading speculation in worthless shares of the South Sea Bubble of 1719-1720, which resulted in an international scandal.

[Diplomatic letter to the English emissary [Charles Stewart] acknowledging the English desire for improved diplomatic relations, and offering a truce and a peace treaty].[Meknes (Morocco), 3 Safar 1133 AH (= 23 December 1720)]. Whole sheet (57 x 43 cm). An elaborately decorated letter in ink on paper, with the stylized architectural and arabesque decorations (including Arabic inscriptions) drawn in black outline, coloured and supplemented in green with some blue, and highlighted with gold, and the 8-line Arabic text of the letter itself in brown. An important and beautifully decorated diplomatic letter in Arabic, from Moulay Ismail ibn Sharif, ruler of Morocco, to the English emissary Charles Stuart, who was in Morocco to negotiate improved relations between the countries. While relations between Britain and Morocco had long been tense, their mutual opposition to French domination of Spain led to cooperation during the War of the Spanish Succession (1702-1713/14) helping Britain gain control of Gibraltar in 1704. Its extremely important strategic position, guarding the mouth of the Mediterranean, meant that Britain was determined to retain control there, but that required cooperation with Morocco, especially since Gibraltar depended on neighbouring lands for food and supplies. The 22 July 1714 treaty of Tetuan settled matters temporarily, but England was eager to establish longer-term security. King George I therefore sent Commodore Charles Stewart (1681-1741) to Morocco with a small squadron to negotiate with Moulay Ismail ibn Sharif (1634?-1727).

Augsburg: Engelbrecht, c. 1720. The Kitchen as Paper TheaterBox: 39cm long x 19cm wide x 12cm high. Cards: 9cm x 14cm each. Six engraved hand-colored cards displayed in a black walnut peep-show box with two lids: one with a window and made of walnut (this one can be slid back and forth), and the other of clear acrylic. An extremely rare hand-colored Engelbrecht peep-show depicting a kitchen scene. This is a particularly nice example as it includes its original folding envelope (with the title in manuscript) and is presented in a black walnut display box. At one end is a window through which you can view the original envelope, preserved it its own compartment. At the other end is a window for viewing the six cards lined up down the length of the box. The peepshow can be viewed either with its clear acrylic top in place, which allows all cards to be illuminated simultaneously, or with the sliding walnut lid, which has a window for manipulation. With the walnut lid, the viewer can slide the top from front to back thus creating a sense of motion as one looks from one kitchen scene to the other. This movement of your gaze through a three dimensional room, from one character to another, makes evident how peepshows have a place within early cinematic history. Martin Engelbrecht (1654-1758) was an engraver in Augsburg who made etchings based upon old master paintings as well as fine plates illustrating the decorative arts and children's literature. His peep-shows function as a type of "paper theater" and were made to entertain and delight both children and adults. In our example, E … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Finest known set of Thomas Bowles most attractive 1720 South Sea Bubble playing cards, perhaps the last in private hands. A stupendous rarity considered among the most valuable decks of cards in the world. The South Sea Bubble Playing Cards were first published in London by Thomas Bowles in 1720. The cards bear satirical portrayals of the speculators involved in various commercial projects started during the South Sea Bubble of 1720, providing a unique contemporary record of the feverish atmosphere of the time, as well as the fashions of dress. Probably the finest known set. Slight flaws to 6 of clubs could be easily restored. No title card as usual. Usual duty stamp on ace of spades. Missing Title card as almost all examples are. The cards were printed from copper plates, with the red suit symbols being applied later by stencil. The court cards contain interesting miniature versions of the standard full-length figures used on playing cards at the time. The backs are plain. The cards provide a unique contemporary record of the feverish activities of traders in stock, by depicting in cartoon form a series of domestic situations which, although doubtless somewhat exaggerated, represented the atmosphere of the time. The South Sea Bubble is often described as England's first great financial crash.
