        LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE signée "Florian" adressée à "Monsieur l'abbé Arnaud".

      - Une page (156 X 196) sur un double feuillet filigrané "Pro Patria"; adresse manuscrite à la quatrième page : "à monsieur, monsieur l'abbé Arnaud chez Me de Vimeux, chez Mr le Cte d'Argentat, au bas du pont Royal". FLORIAN réclame à l'abbé Arnaud un service : " [.] j'ai lu mes vers à Mr de Buffévent, on prétend qu'il ne sont pas aisés à entendre, surtout le premier et qu'il faut mettre au lieu de "tu n'as point combattu", "tu n'as point concouru". Si ce changement est bon, comme je le crois, et que votre société le juge tel, je vous demande en grâce de retourner au journal le faire changer. Ce sera la millième obligation que vous aura votre ami. ". Le destinataire de Florian est très probablement l'abbé François Arnaud (Aubignan, 1720 - Paris, 1784), littérateur français qui entra en 1762 à l'Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres et à l'Académie française en 1771. Il écrivit le plus souvent en société avec Suard dans le Journal étranger, dans la Gazette de France, dans la Gazette littéraire de l'Europe (1764-1766). Après avoir combattu les philosophes, il les soutint ensuite avec ardeur, se montra gluckiste passionné et fit une guerre d'épigrammes a Marmontel et aux piccinistes. Il publia à cette occasion de remarquables articles sur la musique ancienne. Une des plus mordantes épigrammes qu'il ait décochées contre Marmontel est celle où il tourne en ridicule la prétention de son adversaire à posséder le secret des vers de Racine ; Jamais, écrivit-il, secret ne fut si bien gardé.

        Veduta della Gran Curia Innocenziana

      Rome - From the important series "Vedute di Roma"Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etchings.

        The Complete Servant -Maid or Maiden's Companion. General Directions to Maid-Servants.

      Edward Midwinter., London. 1720 - Circa 1720. Disbound, heavily worn, page edges frayed, lacks all before B1(page1) which has loss of text lower left. Hannah Woolley, sometimes spelled Wolley, (born 1622, England - died circa 1675, England) was a writer who published early books on household management and was probably the first to earn their living doing this.[1] Her mother and elder sisters were all skilled in "Physick and Chirurgery" and she learned from them . Nothing is known of her father. From 1639 to 1646 Wolley worked as a servant for an unnamed woman, almost certainly Anne, Lady Maynard (d. 1647), during which time she learned about medical remedies and recipes. She married Jerome Woolley, a schoolmaster, in 1646 and ran with him a free grammar school at Newport, in Essex. This is very near the Maynard family's house at Little Easton. In the school she put into practice her skills at "physick". A few years later, the Woolleys opened a school in Hackney, London [3]. She had at least four sons and two daughters, and the marriage was remembered by Hannah as a happy one.[2] Hannah was widowed in 1661 and from that year on began publishing books on household management. She covered such topics as : recipes, notes on domestic management, embroidery instruction, the etiquette of letter writing, medicinal advice, and perfume making. These proved to be very popular. Her first book The Ladies Directory was published at her own expense in 1661, and this was soon reprinted in 1664. Her second book The Cooks Guide, was printed at a her publisher's expense and is dedicated to Maynard's daughter, Lady Anne Wroth (1632–1677), and her own daughter Mary[2]. Wolley earned a reputation as a successful physician, despite her amateur status and the unwelcoming environment for female medical practitioners at that time in history. She used her books as an advertisement for her skills and invited her readers to consult her in person. Wolley remarried in 1666 at St. Margaret's, Westminster, to Francis Challiner, a widower two years older than herself. But her second husband died before February 1669. Wolley's own date of death is unknown. She did not react, as she had done previously, to another plagiarised work of 1675 called The Accomplish'd Ladies Delight so it is likely that she did not live to see it appear. [Works * The first of these was The Ladies Directory (1661) * The Cooks Guide, of 1664 * In 1670 Wolley produced The Queen-Like Closet (the title refers to the book The Queens Closet Opened, of 1655 written by 'W.M.' of whom very little is known.) at least two editions of a German translation of this were published as Frauenzimmers Zeitvertreib[2]. * In 1672 The Ladies Delight * Her last work, A Supplement to the "Queen-Like Closet," or, A Little of Every Thing (1674). * An unauthorized work based on her books was published in 1673 as The Gentlewoman's Companion[3][4]. * Similar unauthorized works followed in 1675 The Accomplished Ladies Delight and in 1685 The Compleat Servant-Maid. Like her authentic works, these were reprinted frequently. This is from the library of Edward Gordon Craig. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Light browning and foxing as expected, else a fresh copy, folding plates in very good condition. Fourth edition in French, revised, corrected and enlarged. Gage (c.1597 ¿ 1656) was an English clergyman and traveller; he studied at Valladolid with the Jesuits and later became a Dominican. His travels began at Mexico, where he started a missionary journey that would last for 12 years, getting to know the land and local costumes. In 1640, once back in England, he converted to Anglicanism and was sent to the Antilles by Cromwell in an expedition to assess the state of the Spanish settlements, where he stayed until death found him in Jamaica. Illustrated with two frontispieces and 16 folding plates and maps; the views show local city views and natural history, the maps are of North America, Guadalupe, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and Cuba, all giving a comprehensive view of the Caribbean and the plates include folding views of Cartagena, Porto Bello and La Havana. The work harshly criticizes the religious institutions and the Spanish colonization method. Sabin, 26303. Palau, 96486. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Map of the West Indies or the Islands of America in the North Sea; with the adjacent countries; explaining what belongs to Spain, England, France, Holland &c also the Trade Winds and the several Tracts made by Galeons and Flota from place to place.

      London. [1720] - 2 sheets joined. Size: 595 x 1030 mm. Some skilful paper restoration to map folds and to worm holes. Very good condition. Copperplate engraving, with original outline colour. This is a map that reveals Moll both as an astute political observer and thinker, and also as a commercially savvy operator. This map of the West Indies is full of commercially sensitive information about the Spanish gold runs, and it is entirely feasible that the map was deliberately suited as a guide to English piracy and privateering in the West Indies. Through his London connections, Moll knew of two prominent English pirates or privateers: Woodes Rogers and William Dampier. They may have given Moll essential, crucial knowledge to include and publish on his maps. Moll clearly shows the routes taken by the Spanish in their endeavours to collect gold, silver and gems from their territories in New Spain. The fleets entered by Granada and Trinidad, and stopped in Cartagena; from there they headed northward to Havana, and crossed the Gulf of Mexico en route to the port of Vera Cruz, where they would take on a rich cargo from their silver mines in Potosi. Heavily laden with cargo, the fleet would then make good use of prevailing trade winds and make for Havana again, prior to heading out through Florida and the Bahamas to take them across the Atlantic back to Europe. Significantly, Moll engraves five of the most important Spanish ports and harbours involved with the "gold run". It is interesting to note that Moll dedicates the wonderful and enterprising map to William Patterson, the founder of The Bank of England. There is a large decorative cartouche of Mexico city in the lower left corner of the map. This detailed map appeared in Moll's A New and Compleat Atlas.

Third Edition, revised and enlarged, edited by Prosper Marchand, the most attractive editon and the first to contain all of Bayle's additions. The most important and most influential sceptic of the late seventeenth century, Bayle provided the philosophers of the Enlightenment with a wealth of argument and ridicule with which to assail the intellectual 'Ancien Regime'. This, his major work, was composed with the intention of correcting the mistakes of Moreri's Grand Dictionnaire. "Bayle championed reason against belief, philosophy against religion, tolerance against superstition.For over half a century, until the publication of the Encyclopédie, Bayle's Dictionnaire dominated enlightened thinking in every part of Europe."

      Printed and Sold by Tho Bowles, London 1720 - 4to; [6], 273, [1]pp. Bound in contemporary full English paneled calf, sympathetically rebacked, the spine with five raised bands ruled in gilt and a new red morocco lettering piece gilt; all edges speckled red. First edition, first issue, of this fully and finely engraved road atlas of England and Wales, with 273 maps patterned after the 17th-century versions of John Ogilby. Scarce first issue, with "next ye King of Spain in S: Katherines" in the imprint statement (later issues read "near ye Stairs in St. Katherine’s"). First Edition points as follows: p. 8, Sussex 'rapes' [administrative boundaries] not numbered; p.128 misnumbered '121' (a later owner has added lines to the numeral '1' making it look like an '8'; p.141 showing a coat of arms in the text at bottom right showing three trefoils in a bend or diagonal bar. Shirley I, 278-80. Hodson 149. Tooley, 83. Lister, 62. A smaller, popular version of John Ogilby's famous road atlases of England, originally published in 1675 in a folio edition entitled: Britannia: or an Illustration of the Kingdom of England and Dominion of Wales. Ogilby's survey was perhaps the most accurate to date; he used the new distance of 1760 yards to a mile instead of the old standard of 2428 yards and calculated measurements methodically by foot. Due to public demand for these accurate strip road maps in a format conducive to travel, several smaller versions were published, with the present edition being one of the most successful. Emanuel Bowen was official map engraver to both George II and Louis XV of France, producing some of the finest and most intricately engraved English county maps of his time. His popular, conveniently sized Britannia Depicta went through three printings the first year. It contains 54 county maps and associated suites of strip road maps spread over 273 plates. An all-together elaborate production, in Fine, clean, bright condition, each map fully and elaborately engraved by Emanuel Bowen and enhanced with little-known historical facts (supplied by the antiquarian John Owen), elaborate heraldic images, rococo cartouches and decorative borders.

It has the following first issue points: no notice of Stony Stratford on p. 53, the numbering is in the left-hand corner of p. 121, p. 128 is misnumbered 121 (here corrected in ink).Owen and Bowen appear to have been in great demand since four editions were published between 1720 and 1724. It was a smaller, popular version of John Ogilby's famous road maps of England, which were originally published in folio in 1675 as ‘Britannia: or an Illustration of the Kingdom of England and Dominion of Wales’. Ogilby's survey was perhaps the most accurate to date. He used the new distance of 1760 yards to a mile instead of the old standard of 2428 yards and calculated distances methodically by foot. Several smaller versions where published, although Ogilby’s own was the most successful, going through a number of editions and reprints well past the middle of the century. Each page is engraved, and provided with printed annotations and coats of arms. (Chubb CXLVII; Fordham pp.18-19; ESTC N15579)
