        [A set of four ornithological prints]

      London: Josephus Sympson, 1741. Large folio. (16 1/2 x 20 5/16 inches). Without text (as issued). 4 copper-engraved plates by Josephus Sympson after Marmaduke Cradock, window-mounted within a modern cloth box, leather lettering-piece. A fine lively series featuring at least 16 different species of birds. Cradock was born at Somerton, near Ilchester, in Somerset in about 1660. He was apprenticed to a house painter in London, but at the end of the apprenticeship turned to painting animals, birds and still life. His success with private patrons was limited and, in the main, he produced pictures for dealers. The DNB describes his work for Josephus Sympson as being `very spirited' and notes that it was not until after his death that the 'merits of his pictures were recognised, and they rose in value'. Walpole praised some of his work, and examples are included in Lord Derby's famous collection at Knowsley and the Yale Centre for British Art. The subjects of the plates are as follows: 1. A kestrel (?) carries off a chick, whilst a cock and hen and their four remaining chicks take flight, looking on are a pea-hen (?) and a barn owl, whilst a wren and a tit squabble on a roof nearby. 2. A cock pheasant stands guard on a stump, a juvenile pheasant makes off with an ear of corn, at a stream close by two kingfishers perch, on the banks of the stream a family of ducks (a drake, the female and 4 ducklings) feed, above them a third kingfisher flies off, in the background a duck sits on her nest. 3. A pigeon stands on a block of masonry, watched by a tit, a robin and a second pigeon, a short-tailed parrot perches on a nearby branch, above a pair of lapwings. 4. A woodpecker returns to the nest-hole to be greeted by its mate, on a nearby branch three sparrows perch, to the right of them are a pair of swallows and a fourth sparrow preening itself.

He offered his miniature publications in two volumes so as not to create a book so large that a child could not fit it in his pocket. In the original Dutch paste-paper floral boards. Small marginal tear to preliminary leaf in volume two, few margins slightly shaved, else an unusually fine, fresh set of this rare children's book. (Bondy p. 21; Gottlieb 173; Welsh 1408).

        Six Plates from Tombeaux des Princes, des Grands Capitaines et autres hommes illustres qui ont fleuri dans la Grande-Bretagne

      Paris: for MacSwinney,, [1741] . Within mounts c.630 × 400 mm. Copper engravings with etching. Light toning overall, but otherwise very good. A rather raffish character, McSwiny made and lost "a moderate younger brother&#39;s fortune" as a theatrical impresario in London. With the failure of Handel&#39;s Teseo in 1713 he was bankrupted and forced to flee abroad. Settling in Italy he continued to act as an agent for Italian opera in London, recruiting singers and recommending operas, but also moved into the commissioning of works of art from young Italian painters. It was McSwiny&#39;s patronage that helped establish the close connection between Canaletto and England. In the 1720s he commissioned a team of Venetian and Bolognese artists, including Canaletto, Cimaroli, Creti and Ricci, to produce a series of capriccio landscapes featuring allegorical tombs celebrating great men of recent English history. The Duke of Richmond was an important patron of the enterprise, acquiring at least ten of the paintings, and in the 1730s a prospectus was issued inviting subscriptions from "the Ladies and Gentlemen of Taste of Great Britain" for a volume of engravings based on the paintings. These were finally produced in Paris in 1741 drawn by Creti&#39;s pupil Domenico Maria Fratta and employing some of the finest French engravers of the period, including Tardieu, Beauvais and Cochin. Each finely-engraved plate features a ruined classical tomb rendered in superb architectural detail within an Italianate landscape. These serve as the setting for complex allegorical scenes illustrative of the quotations from ancient authors which serve as captions. The collection was described by Cohen-De Ricci as "très rare.

      Venice: Giovanni Battistia Recurti, 1741. First edition. Hard cover. Fine/A fine specimen of Venetian book arts of the 18th century. The text is basically a vehicle for the nine full-page portraits of Medici dukes by Campiglia, which are highly realized and vivid. Almost as compelling are the views of the major cities of Tuscany engraved by the Venetian book illustrator Giuseppe Filosi (who had "borrowed" the idea from the headpieces by Visentini illustrating the 1738 edition of Guicciardini). The very feel of the paper gives off a sensation of luxury. All collations call for nine portraits, as in this copy, although copies exist with extra plates inserted.. Royal Folio (47cm); [2], xxiv, 192, [14] pages, and 9 full page portraits after Giandomenico Campiglia. Title page in red and black, with complicated allegorical device by Giuseppe Filosi; 8 chapter head pieces by Filosi showing the cities of Tuscany, and 9 tail pieces (some duplicate images) also by Filosi. Engraved initials. Bound in contemporary full vellum over boards, with recent leather title label. Edges stained blue. Very light marginal dampstain in 19th quire, else a bright, crisp, fresh and nearly pristine copy. References: Morazzoni, 217; Brunet (1842) I:314.

The scarce sale catalogue of the library of Antoine Lancelot (1675-1740), French historian and archeologist and Inspector of the Collège Royal, who assisted Bayle with his Dictionnaire Critique and worked with Mabillon on various scholarly projects. Lancelot served as under-librarian of the Collège Mazarin where he deciphered many of its early manuscripts and arranged the archives. This was a large and fine library of 6000 lots (often with several books in a lot), particularly rich in French history, and including 240 manuscripts. In his introduction, Martin explains that he has reprinted Lancelot&#39;s own manuscript catalogue with his notes, though somewhat differently classified. The second part, lots numbered 4,745 to 6,000, lists the books acquired by him after the completion of Lancelot&#39;s own catalogue.

        La Famille de Marêchal [Pl. 40]

      Paris: Moyreau, 1741. Hand-coloured engraving on laid paper by Moyreau. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing, mild rippling, and a small stain in the top right corner of the sheet. A few small brown and black spots in the left margin. 14 1/4 x 18 3/4 inches. 18 5/8 x 23 3/4 inches. A fine composition showing a soldier or cavalryman returning home to his family. This beautifully coloured print is one of many engravings Jean Moyreau (1690-1762) made of Wouwerman&#39;s paintings. Born into a family of Dutch artists in Haarlem in 1619, the prolific draughtsman and painter Philips Wouwerman was primarily renowned for his lively battle and hunting scenes. After an early elementary introduction to the art of painting by his father, Paulus Joostens, he trained with the landscape painter Jan Wynants (1620-1679) and briefly worked in the Hamburg studio of the history painter Everard Decker (d. 1647) around 1638. Wouwerman later returned to Haarlem, where he joined the Guild of St. Luke, which later elected him to the office of vinder in 1646. His elegantly rendered, distinctive works, which are characterized by their luminous colour and detailed, animated treatment of figures and landscape alike, were extremely popular in the seventeenth century as well as the nineteenth century, during which they were zealously collected. In addition to his hunting scenes, Wouwerman&#39;s varied and substantial repertoire of subjects included military and battle scenes, landscapes, travellers, animals and genre subjects. Cf.

        The North- American?s Almanack, And Gentleman?s and Lady?s Diary, For the Year of our Lord Christ 1776

      Thomas, Edes, & Hall, Pamphlet format, 8vo, stitched self wrappers, 24pp. Some browning and foxing, early child?s scribbling in bottom margin of title, and the usual corner folds. Overall in very good condition, better than you normally see for almanacs of this period. What makes this almanac unique is that Sterns (1741-1809) included an account of Lexington and Concord, which has been attributed to William S, Gordon. Although Sterns was believed to have Tory leanings, and served time in jail for it, this commentary appears to present more of American perspective. This first hand report of the start of the American Revolution begins with an account of how British soldiers fired on dispersing American militia at Lexington, and how a more organized group of the American militia fired back at the British at Concord ("The Shot Heard Round The World?) sending them into retreat. Sagendorph: America and Her Almanacs. Evans 14473.

        Album of 50 botanical paintings on vellum, 25 of which feature South African plants. Executed 1777-1780.

      Folio album (mount dimensions 460 x 375 mm, vellum sheet dimensions 340 x 255 mm), comprising one manuscript calligraphic title 'Drawings by Elizabeth [Montagu] Duchess of Manchester' and 50 botanical paintings, body- and watercolours on vellum, the vellums mounted within green wash frame borders on heavy card, the vellums numbered consecutively 1-50, and botanical names in Latin and English, with places of origin, in pen on versos; contemporary straight-grained morocco, elaborate gilt panels with green and yellow morocco overlays with greek key border, floral border, gilt greek key dentelles, spine with elaborate gilt panels and green morocco label 'Drawings', gilt edges, bookplate and label of Kimbolton Castle on front marbled paper pastedown. A fine series of beautifully executed paintings of exotic flowering plants recently introducted into cultivation, and half of which come from South Africa. They are painted in the style of Ehret. Elizabeth Montagu (1741-1832) was an accomplished botanical artist, who may have been taught by Peter Brown (fl 1758-99), court painter to the Prince of Wales, and probable pupil of Georg Dionysius Ehret. The South African specimens reflect some of the introductions made by the botanist and plant collector Francis Masson (1741-1805), who was sent by Kew Gardens to South Africa in 1772 to collect plants and bulbs. He collected until the end of 1775, before going on to the Canaries, Azores, Maderia, and West Indies (where many of the other plants depicted derive from), returning to England in 1781. This time frame matches closely that of the present album. He was working under the aegis of Sir Joseph Banks, director of Kew, and also friend of George Montagu, Elizabeth's husband, so a Masson/Kew provenance of the plants is most likely.

        Nicolai Klimii iter subterraneum novam telluris theoriam ac historiam qvintae monarchiae adhuc nobis incognitae exhibens e bibliotheca B. Abelini.

      Hafniæ & Lipsiæ, Sumptibus Iacobi Prevssii. 1741. 8vo. Cont. half calf w. somewhat worn back. Complete w. the engraved frontispiece, 2 engraved plates and the foldable map of the underworld. Engraved title-page. A bit of browning.. First edition of this influential utopian masterpiece. The satirical piece of science fiction by the "father of Danish Literature", the famous Danish professor of Law and Philosophy, Ludvig Holberg, can be compared in style and setup to Swift's "Gulliver's Travels", which was published 15 years earlier. The sharp political satire is not bound to a specific nation, but to the entire human race, and thus gives a picture of human conditions and thought in general in this period. Though the work does not bear a title which directly indicates its obvious utopian connections, as does for instance More's "Utopia", the name of the land of the living trees, in which Niels Klim arrives, "Potu", is very likely to constitute a word game indicating it's obvious literary intention: Spelled backwards we get: "UTOP". The quaint creatures and societies that Niels Klim meets in the underworld are said to be comparable to the characterization he gives in his Epistles (III) of the different European peoples, and thus we find satirical examples of the English mixed with the Dutch (in Potu) and the French mixed with the Germans (in Martinia). "I det hele er Modsætningen mellem Potu, Ideallandet - det kaldes virkelig saaledes i Bogens Slutning - og Martinia, Karikaturen, ikke blot geografisk, men historisk som mellem det attende Aarhundredes Realisme og det syttende Aarhundredes Formalisme. Potu er Naturrettens og den naturlige Religions Land, Martinia (for ikke at sige Lutheria) Ortodoksiens og Aristokratiets. Aands-Frihed og Stats-Tugt er Bogens Tendens. Da Holberg holdt saa haardt ved den faste Stat, turde han vel vente Absolution for at han ikke opgav den frie Tanke." (Vilh. And. II, p. 133). (= "All in all the contrast is between Potu, the ideal country - it is actually called so in the end of the book - and Martinia, the caricature, not only geographically, but historically as being between the realism of the 18th century and the formalism of the 17th century. Potu is the country of natural law and natural religion, Martinia (not to say Lutheria) is that of orthodoxy and aristocracy. Freedom of spirit and state-discipline are the tendencies of the book. Since Holberg stood so strongly on the dominating state, he ought to have expected absolution for not giving up free thought.").Ehr-M.: XII, 213
