        A View in Lyme Park (With that extraordinary Custom of driving the Stags;) the property of Peter Legh Esqr

      1745 - Copper engraving. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, mild creasing, and a few skillfully repaired small tears in the margins. A picturesque view of Lyme Park in Cheshire, the ancestral estate of the Legh family, after the celebrated landscape artist Smith of Derby. This beautifully rendered print is one of 23 plates Vivares engraved after Smith. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century, a trend developed among English artists and printmakers who sought to visually record the natural beauty of England and Wales. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, English printmakers began to publish topographical prints of the important sights in the British Isles. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside they were meant to encourage public recognition of the beauty and history of England. They were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those armchair travelers who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. One of the earliest and most influential landscape artists to begin this trend was Thomas Smith who came to be known as "Smith of Derby." Smith traveled the north of England painting famous houses and beautiful views. He was one of the first artists to depict wild landscape scenes, which became immensely fashionable with the development of the "picturesque landscape" towards the end of the century. Smith's paintings not only captured the English countryside at the onset of the Industrial Revolution, but also recorded the activities of visiting tourists and local inhabitants. These works capture a period in England's history, which was forever changed by the wheels of progress. Before the mills and the factories came to dominate the landscape of northern England, Smith depicted its wild beauty and breathtaking scenery. This beautiful view of the bucolic scenery of Lyme Park is a lovely example of Smith's superior work. As the title states, the practice of driving the stags through what was called "Stag Pond" each year at Midsummer was indeed extraordinary. There were large herds of red deer and wild cattle on the property, and at some point it became traditional to drive the deer around the park, ending with the swim through the pond. The last stag has just entered the water and two of the first in line are having a brief skirmish (though it looks rather like a dance). We have not yet discovered the purpose of the summer swim.

        Vida do Veneravel Padre Joseph Vaz, da congregação do oratorio de S.Filippe Neri da Cidade de Goa, na India Oriental; Fundador da loboriosa missão, que os Congregados desta Casa tem à sua conta na Ilha Ceylão

      - Na Regia Officina Sylviana, e da Academia Real, Lisboa, 1745. XXVII + 354 pp. 21,5cm. Bound. First edition. Vaz (1651-1711) was a Goan missionary of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri . He was Superior of the missions at Canar from 1681-84 , and in 1687 sailed for Ceylon where he ministered at Kandy . Vaz 's work greatly strengthened arguments in favor of indigenous clergy , who were often considered unsuitable for missionary work . The book is of particular importance because it was published 34 years after Vaz had died and when many people still remained who had known him and had witnessed the related facts.This work is very interesting and valuable for the history of the Portuguese missions in Eastern India in the last quarter of the seventeenth century and the first quarter of the eighteenth. Very rare. Full leather binding. Very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Madrid, Manuel Fernandez, 1745. 4to (220 x 150mm). pp. (48), 403, (5); pp. (8), 412, (16), with 1 large engraved folding map of the Orinoco and 2 engraved plates. Contemporary limp vellum, with contemporary manuscript title on spines (remains of ties). A very fine copy of the second enlarged edition. The first edition was published in 1741. José Gumilla (1686-1750), Spanish Jesuit, stayed for 30 years at the Orinoco missions and was the first to publish a comprehensive account on the Orinoco river, its people, tribes and natural history. "The work of father Gumilla is one of the most curious and interesting hitherto published upon the country of the Orinoco." (Sabin 29276). "He travelled widely on the Middle Orinoco and had ascended to Apure, Arauca and Meta rivers... and in 1741 published what was the first descriptive account of the Orinoco and its tributaries... In his book Gumilla spoke bitterly of the slave traders who invaded his country" (Howgego p. 464). The present work is based on Gumilla's personal observations as well as material he found in manuscripts left by fathers Mercado and Ribera. The beautiful engraved folding plate shows the Jesuit missions, towns and tribes along the Orinoco.//Sabin 29275; Leclerc 1471.

        The Itinerary of John Leland the Antiquary. In Nine Volumes. The Second Edition: Collated and Improved from the Original MS. With the Addition Also of a General Index.

      Oxford: Printed at the Theatre; for James Fletcher and Joseph Potte 1745-4. - Leland (1506?-1552) has been called "the father of English local history." He established the county as the basic unit for studying the local history of England. He was educated at Christ's College, Cambridge, All Souls College, Oxford, and in Paris, and at different times had the patronage of Thomas Wolsey and Thomas Cromwell. He was appointed prebendary of Wilton Abbey in 1535 and received two adjacent benefices. In 1533 he was apparently entrusted by the kind with a document which authorized him to examine the libraries of all the religious houses in England, and he made numerous lists of significant books in these libraries, for the most part before they were dissolved. He subsequently made many journeys, including five major itineraries to various regions of Britain, and on these he kept notebooks, writing down information he gleaned from personal observation, from books, charters, and oral sources. Though Leland's Itineraries remained unpublished until the eighteenth century, they provided important source material for Camden's Britannia (1586) and many other works. His other works included Latin poetry, a treatise on King Arthur, the "New Year's Gift" (a letter addressed to Henry VIII), a biographical dictionary of famous British authors, and others. Nine volumes, octavo in fours. With a large, folding copper-engraved plate in Volume VIII. Engrqaved vignette of the Sheldonian Theatre on title-page of Volume I. Original marbled boards with vellum backstrips. Spines a bit rubbed, with hand-lettering mostly worn off, a few hinges with minor spilits. Minor wear to covers. A remarkably fine, uncut set. The greatly revised second edition of the works of John Leland first published in 1710. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Carl Wilhelm von Woelckern auf Kalchreuth geboren 1728 den 21ten October 1793 fünf und zwantig jahr. Pfleger zu Altdorf.

      Gez. u Gest. H. Hessell. Plate mark 15 x 9 cm. The whole sheet 25,5 x 16,5 cm. Aquatint. At the verso there is the blue collectors stamp of Christian Hammer. One of the greatest swedish collectors in the 19th. century. A little residue of paper strips in two corners at the verso, after an earlier mounting. Nice condition.. A portrait of Carl Wilhelm von Woelckern. The remarkable thing about this portrait is that it was probably executed in the rare physionotrace technique. It looks and has all the caharcteristics of a physionotrace, but there is no mentioning of the method on the plate. The physionotrace technique was invented in the mid 1780s. by the frenchman Gilles-Louis Chrétien (1745 - 1811). The present one was executed by Leonhard Heinrich Hessell (1756 - 1819) which means that this is a german physionotrace. A very rare thing to find. Most examples are french. Hessell used his own method called the "Hessellischen Treffer", a development of the french method. A physionotrace was executed by a mechanical device capturing a profile in a very detailed way. The physionotrace is regarded as an important stepping stone toward the development of photography. No machine is preserved to this day, just a sketch in the Bibliotheque National in Paris. Its history is brief from its invention in the 1780s to its disappearance in the early 18th. century. Accordingly, physionotrace images are very rare today. Few countries outside France produced these kind of images, Germany and the United States being two of them

Some slight soiling. A fresh, wide-margined copy. Very good, untrimmed. This copy does not contain the folding genealogical table. The life of Amerigo Vespucci, including his letters describing alleged voyages to America, as well as Girolamo Sernizi's account of Vasco da Gama's journey. Described by Sabin as "an elaborate panegyric of Vespucius, in which he is called the Discoverer of America. The researches of later Spanish authors have shown Bandini's dates to be incorrect." "This classic work is much sought after....It can be affirmed that the book's publication inflamed the literary controversy about Vespucci that impassioned the greatest 'Americanists' of ensuing decades. It is an indispensable work, a true landmark in Vespucian studies" - Borba de Moraes. SABIN 3149. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 745/218. PALAU 23255. BORBA DE MORAES, p.59. JCB (1)III:793.

        Family Expositor o

      London - J. Waugh 1745 - Two original leatherbound volumes. Two very early volumes of this influential edition of the New Testament. Philip Doddridge (1702-51) was an English Nonconformist leader and writer. Throughout the 1730s and 1740s Philip Doddridge continued his academic and pastoral work, and developed close relations with numerous early religious revivalists and independents, through extensive visits and correspondence. Through this approach he helped establish and maintain a circle of influential independent religious thinkers and writers, including Dr Isaac Watts. He also became a prolific author and hymn-writer. This is volumes one and two only. Condition: These volumes could do with some repair work. The bindings are tight and firm, although the front outer hinges are cracked and the rear boards are holding by the cords only and these could become detached in the post. There is some wear to the extremities including bumping to the corners, heavy rubbing, scratches and some loss to the leather. There is some loss to the spine label of volume 2. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and odd spot. The front blank endpaper of Volume 2 is detached and present but the rear blank endpaper is detached and missing. There are no blank endpapers present in Volume 1 and there is some creasing and a tear with loss to the bottom of the title page. Overall the volumes are in good only condition.

        Catalogo delle statue del R. Giardino di Boboli colla notizia dei loro Autori

      Florence, Italy: Presso Giuseppe Volpini Cartolaro This is not a bilingual edition. Text in Italian only, not in English. First edition. Presumed contemporary vellum spine and corners with later marbled paper boards. The binding is quite handsome and in very good condition. Virtually unbumped spine head and tail and with gently bumped corners. With a leather title label laid on to the spine. Fairly crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the leather label, "Statue di Firenze 1 2 3." No publication date but presumed printed in the last quarter of the 18th century. 7.75 x 5.5 inches. Three volumes in one. The text block is firmly bound in. Pages may have been trimmed. Each volume consists primarily of unsigned plates. 320 copper-engraved plates in total, including 312 quarter-sized and 8 full-page. Preface to each volume by the compiler, Giovanni Chiari. Curiously, each volume's title page reads "Parte I." Doubtless a printer's error and found in at least one other copy of this book [Getty Museum copy]. Engraved title pages, illustrated, signed by the engraver: G. Vascellini (engraver of the unsigned plates?). Vascellini lived 1745-1805. Chiari was active in the 18th century. Vol. 1: 8 p., 25 leaves of plates; Vol. 2: 8 p., 41 leaves of plates; Vol. 3: 7 p., 20 leaves of plates. Part 1. Statue del R. Giardino di Boboli colla notizia dei loro autori ec.; Part 2. Statue nel R. Palazzo de' Pitti, nella R. Galleria, nel Palazzo Vecchio; Part 3. Statue che in diversi luoghi della nostra Firenze. As is the case with this copy, a copy of this book in the Getty Library is also bound as one volume; each part's engraved title-page says "Parte I." Blue ribbon page marker. Very light off-setting of the plates to the opposite pages. Else an exceptionally clean copy. Remarkably free of foxing, stains, tears, ink marks or other demerits. A Very Good Plus copy. Very scarce in any condition. It has been suggested that this book was published with the intention that the buyer would cut out the small plates (about 2.75 x 2 inches) and use then as place cards at the banquet table, filling in the blank lozenge in the lower third of each plate with the name of the dinner guest. Obviously, if true, this would account for the fact that there are few surviving copies of the book. Questa non è una edizione bilingue. Testo solo in italiano, non in inglese. Prima edizione. Manca una data di pubblicazione ma circa ultimo quarto del 18 ° secolo. Tre parti riunite assieme in 8vo, pp. 7 - 8 - 4 con 100 + 164 + 56 finissime vedute di statue su 86 tavv. incise in rame dal Vascellini (normalmente 4 statue su ogni tav. e 8 gruppi marmorei su tavv. singole). Inoltre 3 frontespizi figurati. Forse l'editore era legato alla celebre famiglia I Volpini, una famiglia di scultori tra Lombardia e Baviera, secoli XVII-XVIII.. Presumed First Edition. Decorative Boards. Very Good Plus. Illus. by Vascellini, Gaetano. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

First edition. - Complete set of one of Wicquefort's principal works; very rarely encountered complete as thus: even Hoefer mentions merely the first two volumes (published up to 1743) of this three-volume history of the Dutch Republic, issued in several installments (one original wrapper is bound in the set). "Unter seinen Schrifften hat die 'Historie von Holland' wohl das größte Aufsehn gemacht. Seine Gefangenschafft unterbrach den Druck des Wercks: wiewohl er auch in dem Gefängniß sich nicht hindern ließ, die Arbeit fortzusetzen; jedoch konte er bey den damaligen Umständen sich nicht enthalten, eine scharffe und beissende Schreib-Art wider die vornehmsten Bedienten des Staats zu gebrauchen; welches aber verursachte, daß erwehntes Werck in dem Drucke gehemmet wurde. Nach dessen Tode ist der erste Tomus 1719 in dem Haag gedruckt worden" (Jöcher). - Bindings somewhat rubbed, bumped and dusty; defects to boards' paper covering in vols. 2 and 3. Interior untrimmed and very clean. Brunet V, 1442. Hoefer XLVI, 720. Jöcher IV, 1943. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Aristotelous peri kosmou, pros Alexandron. Aristotelis de Mundo liber, ad Alexandrum. Cum versione Latina Gulielmi Budaei.

      Glasguae: In Aedibus Academicis Excudebat R. Foulis. 1745 - 12mo (in 6s), 145 x 82 mms., pp. [iv], [1] - 76 [77 - 78 errata, 79 contents, 80 blank], with the adverts leaf after the title-page, contemporary mottled calf; library stamp on lower margin of title-page and library shelf marks on verso of title-page, labels removed from end-papers, binding a little rubbed, but a good copy with the slightly bizarre engraved bookplate of William Gilpin, depicting a wild boar on a shield, with Gilpin's pencil inscription "Hunc Libellus/ Bib Gul. Gilpin/ A A D D" on the recto of the leaf before the title-page. The bookplate is probably that of the author William Gilpin (1724 - 1804), whose Essay on Prints (1768) was an 18th century best-seller. Possibly he etched the bookplate himself, or it was done by his brother Sawrey Gilpin (1733–1807), who was a well-known painter of animals. The work is erroneously attributed to Aristotle; it is also the first edition of this work to be published by one of the Foulis brothers, and there were no subsequent editions. Gaskell 59.

        INSTRUCTIONS TO SIR PAUL METHUEN, HIS MAJESTY'S AMBASSADOR IN SPAIN 1717, UPON WHICH THE TREATY OF MADRID DEC. 14, 1715, SIGNED BY MR. BUB, WAS FOUNDED. This paper was drawn by the Right Honble. Horatio Walpole, Esq., then Commis. to My Lord Townshend at that time sole Secretary of State [manuscript title].

      [N.p. N.d., but ca. 1745]. - 17pp. Folio. Loose gatherings. Light vertical crease. Near fine. A later copy of the instructions given in 1715 to Ambassador to Spain Sir Paul Methuen, in order to negotiate a commercial treaty with that nation, which lists in fifteen detailed sections the possible positions the Spanish negotiators might take and Methuen's possible answers to them. Where, or even if, there is a 1715 original, is unknown to us. The Treaty of Madrid was signed Dec. 14, 1715, after the initial Treaty of Utrecht, signed in 1713. Methuen began negotiations, but George Bubb closed and signed the treaty on behalf of England. "George Bubb, afterwards celebrated as George Bubb Dodington, Methuen's successor at Madrid, negotiated a new commercial treaty.to the lively satisfaction of the English trading classes. By it duties on commerce in the two countries were reduced to the status quo of the reign of Charles II (of Spain, and each contracting party conceded to the other the privileges of the most favored nation, a clause highly injurious to the French woolen manufacture" - Hunt & Poole. One of the articles specifically mentions indigo and other products from the West Indies, used in the British woolen manufacture. This document was drawn up by Horatio Walpole, 1st Baron Walpole of Wolverton (1678-1757) several years later (the watermark in the paper dates to around 1745), and appears to be, in some capacity, official. Walpole was a diplomat and politician, brother of the powerful Prime Minister and the uncle of the author Horace Walpole. William Hunt & Reginald L. Poole, eds. THE POLITICAL HISTORY OF ENGLAND, (1921).
