BUCK, Samuel (1696-1779) and Nathaniel BUCK (fl. 1724-1759 ).
1741 17 ¾ x 33 ¾ in (45.1 x 85.73 cm). Copperplate engraving, titled on upper edge, annotated with description on lower edge and key on lower right (light browning, light crease down the middle, fading consistent with age). A RARE WINDOW INTO GLORIOUS PRE-INDUSTRIAL ENGLAND. This copperplate panorama presents one of the earliest topographical views of Britain, and provides a rare visual record of the historic town of Yarmouth before the upheavals of the Industrial Revolution. The annotated key on the lower right guides the viewer through many of the principal features of this seaside town. The inscription at the lower edge offers meticulous notes on the town's history and local society. The work opens onto vibrant and lively scenes. In the foreground, townsfolk from different walks of life lounge and mingle. The middle of the composition shows ships and boats sailing along a ribbon of water. In the background is a stretch of buildings and churches rendered with extraordinary depth and clarity. Spread throughout the view are intricately rendered human figures who can be seen along the bowling green, the quay, the water, and the road. There is a wealth of detail here for the eyes to feast on. Samuel and Nathaniel Buck were brothers born in Yorkshire, England at around the turn of the 18th century. They published engravings of 428 views of the ruins of all notable abbeys and castles in Britain, along with four views of seats and 83 large general views of the chief cities and towns of England and Wales. From 1728 to 1753, the two young men set out on an ambitious journey throug … [Click Below for Full Description]

D'ARGENS, Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, marquis.
London: for D. Browne, and R. Hett, 1741 - Octavo (168 x 95 mm). Contemporary dark speckled calf, gilt ruled spine, red morocco label, two-line gilt border on sides, red speckled edges. 20th-century bookplate of Robert Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and discriminating collector of 18th century literature in contemporary bindings. Neat repair to top corner of front free endpaper. A very attractive copy, compete with half-title. Woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. First edition in English. "From Jean-Baptiste Boyer d'Argen's Lettres chinoises, Horace Walpole's Letters from Xo Ho, and Oliver Goldsmith's The Citizen of the World (1762), China was a literary tool to reflect and comment on domestic European affairs" (Ashley Eva Millar, A Singular Case: Debating China's Political Economy in the European Enlightenment, 2017, p. 68). Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, marquis d'Argens (1703-1771), was considered an ally by Voltaire and spent twenty-five years, as chamberlain, at the court of Frederick the Great. He "helped disseminate the skeptical ideas of the Enlightenment by addressing his polemical writings on philosophy, religion, and history to a popular readership" (Ency. Brit. online). "D'Argens, it should also be noted, had contributed to the image of pre-Petrine Russia as barbaric in his widely disseminated Chinese Letters" (Amanda Ewington, A Voltaire for Russia: A. P. Sumarokov's Journey from Poet-Critic to Russian Philosophe, 2010, p. 210). Reasonably well represented institutionally but uncommon commercially. A lovely copy of an important work.

Parchment binding with coat of arms of the British military body „Board of Ordnance" gilt stamped as supralibro on front board. [Presumably late 18th century]. 37:25 cm. Parchment binding with gilt stamped supralibro and blind stamped decorative frames, inner boards with laminated, hand made marbled paper in green. Unique parchment binding, probably deriving from the library of the Royal Military Academy founded by the »Board of Ordnance«, a British military body, in 1741. Established in the Tudor period, the Board had its headquarters in the Tower of London, where nowadays its Coat of Arms can still be found on the walls. The primary responsibilities of this body were to act as custodian of the lands, depots and forts required for the defence of the realm and its overseas possessions, and as the supplier of munitions and equipment to both the Army and the Navy. The Board also maintained and directed the Artillery and Engineer corps. By the nineteenth century, the Board of Ordnance was second in size only to Treasury among government departments. Its activities lasted until 1855, at which point (tarnished by poor performance in supplying the Army in Crimea) the organisation was disbanded. The Arms of the Board of Ordnance, gilt stamped on t … [Click Below for Full Description]
