Bound in original publisher's wrappers with the title-leaf reproduced on cover. A Paris: Rapilly, quai des Grands Augustins, 53 bis, [ca. 1890]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Impressions, plus additional later suites. These delicate designs by Gillot, which he drew and etched himself, were created as models for tapestries or draught screens, published for the use of craftsmen and artisans working in these media. Included with the main work are rare later printings from the collection of the early twentieth-century iconographer and scholar on Claude Gillot, B. de Populus. Gillot's ornamental designs are known for their imaginative combination of architecture, arabesques, scroll- and shellwork with human figures in various kinds of fancy dress, for use on panelling, harpsichord cases, screens, hangings, gunstocks, etc. This original set of delicate etchings was done for tapestry/drapery designs, incorporating the principal classical divinities that represented the "Elements": Apollo, Diana, Bacchus, Flora, Neptune, and Thetis. It is known that Gillot was commissioned ca. 1720 to make watercolour and wash drawings of costume designs for the ballet Les Elements, in which the young Louis XV danced. In writing about this suite of etchings Guilmard states: "Ces figures, placées au mileu de riches arabesques, sont tres utilites a consulter comme bons types de l'epoque" (Les Maitres Ornemanistes, p. 144). Claude Gillot (1673-1722), painter, engraver, book illustrator, metal engraver, and decorator, was involved for a long time in painting sets for the Paris Opera. His fame has come down to our time for being the master of both Watteau and Lancret. He was elected to the French Academy in 1715. "Gillot foreshadowed the Rococo and helped to free French painting from the academic conventions imposed by Charles LeBrun. Moreover, Gillot pursued his career in the margins, beyond court taste and royal patronage, maintaining individualism and reviving the sly spirit of Jacques Callot…. [He] made his living as a decorator and painter of arabesques. He also designed book illustrations, tapestry cartoons, and sets and costumes for the opera. The popular theater was Gillot's greatest artistic inspiration, particularly the commedia dell'arte" (J. Paul Getty Museum online). "Claude Gillot was one of the more bizarre artistic figures at work in the first decades of the eighteenth century, yet ultimately one of the most influential. Trained in oil painting, but with little proficiency or interest, he found freedom in small-scale works on paper, where he could give his unique vision free rein. His drawings, typically conceived in series that he or others could etch, were often allegories or humorous explorations of human nature, peopled by figures from the Italian comedy troupe known as the 'Commedia dell'arte' or from the antique tradition of the bacchanal" (British Museum online). Quite rare: OCLC lists only four copies (NYPL, Getty, Houghton Library, and Danish National Library). No copies at auction listed in ABPC. PROVENANCE: Ad. 1: Parisian Bookseller Georges Heilbrun; Peter Wick with ex-libris; Edmond Lincoln with ex-libris. Ad. 2-4: B. de Populus with his written note pasted inside, André Jammes, and Edmond Lincoln. Populus was the expert on Gillot in the early part of the twentieth century, compiling: Claude Gillot (1673-1722), Catalogue de l'oeuvre grave (Paris, 1930). Berlin Katalog 371.

Seutter was the official imperial geographer of Charles VI. Born in Augsburg in 1685, the son of a goldsmith. Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg in 1697, apprenticed as an engraver to Johann Baptist Homann. in 1707 later he returned to Augsburg subsequently working in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in the city. He founded the Seutter publishing house and print shop in 1710, producing maps, atlases, and globes., which became a primary competitor to Homann. Very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and none of the necessary connections to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Therefore Seutter copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models (approximately 500 pieces). His "Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt' appeared in 1725 with 46 maps: the "Atlas Novus" various editions in 1728, 1730, 1736, 1742; the "Grosser Atlas" in 1734 with 131 maps, and the pocket atlas "Atlas minor in 1744 with 64 maps. After Matthäus Seutter died in 1757, his son, Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the business for five more years.

Johann Baptist Homann (1664 ?" 1724) from 1687 Homann worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house. Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as recommendation for potential customers. In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece "Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt" Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, in business until 1848, known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", "Heritiers de Homann" abroad.

        The History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in Ireland, with The true State and Condition of that Kingdom before the Year 1640; and the most material Passages and Actions which since that Time have contributed to the Calamities it hath undergone.

      London: printed by H.P. for J. Wilford, and T. Jauncy, 1720 - Octavo (226 × 135 mm), large paper copy. Contemporary red goatskin, the covers gilt tooled with a double fillet border and a mitred roll-tooled panel with a large ornament at the corners and clusters of ornaments along the sides enclosing a smaller, different roll-tooled panel; the spine divided into seven panels, black goatskin label lettered in gilt in second, others gilt to three distinct designs, raised bands; board-edges and turn-ins gilt with a floral roll, comb-marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a dark brown flat backed cloth solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Ormonde bookplate on front pastedown; collector's bookplate on rear pastedown. Headcaps worn and with a little minor restoration, corners just worn, four leaves (sigs. M5-8) with short marginal tears and creasing at inner corner of top margin not affecting text, these flaws minor only: an excellent copy. Engraved frontispiece portrait of James Butler, first duke of Ormond, after Godfrey Kneller. First edition, large paper copy, from the family library of James Butler, second duke of Ormond (1665–1745), apparently bound for presentation. Clarendon's account of the events in Ireland after the death of Charles I, the supplement to his famous History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England (1702–4), had previously circulated in manuscript only. Edward Hyde (as he then was) was a close personal friend and political ally of the first duke of Ormond (1610–1688), leader of the Irish protestant Royalists, and Clarendon's account of the Civil War in Ireland is in part a defence of Ormond's conduct. The second duke of Ormond was the first duke's grandson; he kept the family alliances alive by marrying Clarendon's granddaughter, Lady Anne Hyde, in 1682. But by the time of the publication of this attempted rehabilitation of his grandfather, he was himself in disgrace and exile. Lord lieutenant of Ireland under Queen Anne, Ormond lost all his offices on the accession of George I. He had been in regular contact with the exiled Jacobite court, perhaps hoping to play a role comparable to that of George Monck at the restoration of Charles II in 1660, but fell victim to the whig triumph. He was impeached for high treason in 1715 and fled the country, never to return. Ormond remained loyal to the Stuarts despite his unswerving Anglicanism. He died in exile on 16 November 1745 at age 80, having offered the previous year to travel to Dunkirk to assist Prince Charles Edward's invasion fleet. This volume was presumably sent not to him personally but to his seat at Kilkenny Castle. It contains the later bookplate of his descendant, the Earl of Ormonde, and was in the library sale of the Marquess of Ormonde at Kilkenny Castle in 1935, the date at which the Butler family, of Anglo-Norman origin, finally left Ireland. With a modern collector's bookplate discreetly on the rear pastedown.

        Satyrische Gedancken Von der Pica Nasi, Oder Der Sehnsucht Der Lüstern Nase, Das ist: Von dem heutigen Missbrauch und schädlichen Effect Des Schnupf-Tabacks. Aus dem Lateinischen aber ins Deutsche übersetzt von L. C. S.

      Leipzig, Georg Christoph Wintzer, 1720. Format: 8°.. [48], 284 S.. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz.. Hellbrauner Halblederband um 1880 mit schwarzem goldgeprägtem Rückenschild, doppelter Goldfilete, breiten Lederecken und kleiner goldgeprägter Vorderdeckelvignette bestoßen und Leder etwas stärker beschabt und berieben.. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. *** Erste deutsche Ausgabe eines der kuriosesten Traktate aus der Feder aus Hildesheim stammenden Mediziners und praktizierenden Arztes Johann Heinrich Cohausen (1665-1750), der in Frankfurt an der Oder studiert und ebenda 1699 promoviert hatte, um dann 1717 eine Stelle als Leibarzt des Bischofs von Münster anzunehmen. "Seine Schriften sind polemisch-satirischer Natur und tragen in ihrer wüsten Gelehrsamkeit und dem Mangel jeder Kritik den Stempel des 17. Jahrhunderts" (Hirsch-Hübotter II, 64). Die erste Ausgabe seiner ebenso witzigen wie treffenden Streitschrift gegen den Schnupftabak war 1716 in lateinischer Sprache unter dem Titel einer "Dissertatio satyrica physico-medico-moralis de pica nasi, sive tabaci sternutatorii" bei Oosterwyk in Amsterdam 1716 erschienen. In zwei Teilen werden die üblen gesellschaftlichen Auswirkungen sowie die gesundheitlichen Schädigungen durch das Tabakschnupfen beklagt, wobei Cohausen zahlreiche Anekdoten anführt, die er teils mit ernstzunehmenden medizinischen Forschungen, wahren Beobachtungen, aber auch mit zahlreichen Anspielungen an die Klassische Literatur und mit kleinen Gedichten sowie erotischen Anspielungen (die "Dose des Mädchens" als Tabacksdose etc.) und Zoten durchwebt: "Seht nur die Nasen an, seht, wie sie lüstern sind, So lüstern als ein Weib, wenn sie vielleicht das Kind Im schwangern Leibe trägt. Was wollen sie doch haben? Ein Prisgen Schnupff-Taback soll ihre Sehnsucht laben" oder "Siehe da, Catulle, was ist das? Der Schnupf-Taback bedeutet was. Ja wartlich mehr als man gedencket. Das schönste Mädgen von der Welt, Das meinen Augen wohlgefällt, Hat ihre Dose mir geschencket. Da rieche nur ein wenig dran, Und sage, was es würcken kan, Ob du die Anmuth nicht verehrest, Mit Leib und Seele, Haut und Haar, Nichts als nur eine Nase wärest". Das bemerkenswert schöne Frontispiz gibt wie auf einem Theaterbühne mit Maskenagraffe, zwei Satyrn und einem Vorhang in einer mächtigen Arkade den Blick auf einen barocken Marktplatz frei, auf dem ein Händler Schnupftabak in Dosen feilbietet, ein Rollwagenverkäufer einem Leiterträger eine Prise anbietet und eine Gruppe von reich gekleideten Bürgern eifrig schnupft, während der "Schnupfteufel" das Schild "Pica Nasi" triumphierend emporhält. Titel leicht fleckig und an Rändern minimal beschnitten, sonst nahezu durchgehend sauberes und kaum gebräuntes, sehr schönes Exemplar. Innendeckel mit modernem Exlibris "Richard Braungart" (nackter Knabe von hinten mit Agavenpflanze). Blake 92. Osler 2334. Arents 520. Immensack 1440. Nicht bei Hayn-Gotendorf.
