      Artist: Anonymus ; issued in: ; date: ca 1750 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Folds perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 68 x 93; - description: Map shows the city of Temeswar and its sourrounding. Names and description of all important buildings, city walls ;and streets in dutch and french language. Timi_oara is the capital city of Timi_ County, and the main social, economic and cultural centre in western Romania. Timi_oara is the informal capital city of the historical region of Banat. In 1552, a 16,000-strong Ottoman army led by Kara Ahmed Pasha conquered the city and transformed it into a capital city in the region. Timi_oara remained under Ottoman rule for nearly 160 years, controlled directly by the Sultan. During this period, Timi_oara was home to a large Islamic community and produced famous historical figures such as Osman Aga of Temesvar, until Prince Eugene of Savoy conquered it in 1716. Subsequently, the city came under Habsburg rule, and it remained so until the early 20th century, except for the Ottoman occupation between 1788?1789 during the Ottoman-Habsburg war.

         A Compleat History of the Piratical States of Barbary, viz. Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli, and Morocco. Containing The Origin, Revolutions, and present State of these Kingdoms, their Forces, Revenues, Policy, and Commerce. Illustrated with a Plan of Algiers, and a Map of Barbary. By a Gentleman who resided there many Years in a public Character.

      London: Printed for R. Griffiths, 1750 - Octavo (208 x 125 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, red morocco label to spine, edges sprinkled red. Extremities rubbed, spine ends worn, label a little chipped, front board marked and rear board scuffed, endpapers browned from turn-ins, contents lightly foxed, natural paper flaw to lower corner of leaf D3 and small chip to upper edge of leaf F5, overall a very good copy. 2 engraved folding plates, one a map of the Kingdom of Algiers, the other a landscape showing the city and harbour. Bookplate of the Wolfe family of Forenaughts to front pastedown, ownership inscription of Philpot Wolfe to title page. First edition thus of this English translation of Jacques Philippe Laugier de Tassy's Histoire du royaume d'Alger (1725), originally published in 1728-9 under the title A Complete History of Algiers, here published with additional matter. It is widely held that Joseph Morgan (fl. 1707-1739) is the author of this translation. As vice-consul in Algiers during the early eighteenth century, Morgan "became deeply involved in ransoming his countrymen at the same time that he could observe the dynamics of captive-taking by the North Africans. In his numerous writings about Algiers and the 'piratical states', Morgan gave voice to the Muslim responsa, asking the questions that Algerians (and others) must have raised when Europeans denounced them for piracy . For the first time, an English writer was articulating the colonial ideology that was emerging at the same time that he was denouncing the deeds of early modern Europeans" (Matar, pp. 192-3). This copy is from the library of Philpot Wolfe (1726-1775), a member of the Irish nobility whose family estate, Forenaughts, had been located on the outskirts of Naas, County Kildare since the late 17th century. Wolfe served the county in various posts, including as High Sherriff, Captain of the Militia, Collector of the Revenue, and Sub-Commissioner of Excise. See National Maritime Museum Catalogue, vol. 4, 387; Nabil Matar, British Captives from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic, 1563-1760 (2014). [Attributes: First Edition]

         The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling

      London: A. Millar, 1750. Fourth edition. xx, 304; viii, 330; x, 288; xii, 347, [1] pp. 12mo. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt, red morocco spine labels. Chipped and worn, front hinges in vols. I & II repaired, small paper repair to margin of vol. II title. Fourth edition. xx, 304; viii, 330; x, 288; xii, 347, [1] pp. 12mo. Sheridan's Tom Jones. Richard Brinsley Sheridan's (1751-1816) copy of the fourth edition of Tom Jones. In 1778 Sheridan and David Garrick brought Fielding's lost play The Fathers: or, the Good-Natur'd Man to Drury Lane for the benefit of Fielding's widow. A manuscript fragment of the play had been found among the papers of Sir Charles Hanbury Williams and identified as Fielding's by Garrick. It ran for nine nights, the house packed with Fielding's friends, and brought his widow Mary much needed relief. As a playwright Sheridan was inheritor of Fielding's wild comic spirit, and his most famous creation, Mrs. Malaprop from The Rivals (1775), is drawn from Fielding's Slipslop, a "mighty Affecter of hard Words" in Joseph Andrews. Sheridan would have undoubtedly read Tom Jones closely and with great interest. Demand for copies of Fielding's masterpiece, arguably the greatest English novel of the 18th century, was so great that all 2,000 copies of the first edition were bought up by the trade before the book's publication on 28 February 1749. A second edition of 1,500 copies, being a paginary reprint of the first, was ordered. There followed a third edition of 3,000 copies, entirely reset and reduced to 4 volumes, and this fourth edition of 3,500 copies, carrying the date 1750 but printed in September and published on 11 December 1749. According to Battestin, this edition "represents [Fielding's] final conception of his masterpiece" (Henry Fielding: A Life, p. 452). It was for years the most readily available edition, as the fifth was not printed until 1763. Cross III, p. 317; Grolier English 48; Rothschild 450. Provenance: Richard Brinsley Sheridan (bookplate in each volume); Louis & Anne Marie Davidson (bookplate)

         Relazione dello stato, in cui si trova l'opera del censimento universale del Ducato di Milano nel mese di Maggio dell'anno 1750 divisa in tre parti [..].

      per Giuseppe Richino Malatesta, 1750. In-folio (cm. 32,6), legatura in m. pelle e angoli con etichetta al dorso (titolo sbiadito) e piatti marmorizzati, tagli spruzzati; pp. XXXXII 380 [4] in ottimo stato, fresche e crocchianti, con testatine, capilettera, finalini in silografia. Prima edizione di opera relativa al primo catasto moderno della storia. Dall'indiscutibile valore dottrinale, è uno degli scritti economici più innovativi del Settecento lombardo e fu presa d'esempio dagli altri Stati europei, sia per l'efficientismo sia per le premesse di equità fiscale. Il suo autore Pompeo Neri (1706-1776), geniale politico ed economista fiorentino, aveva guidato le riforme fiscali e amministrative dei duchi di Lorena in Toscana, quando nel 1748 fu chiamato da Maria Teresa a Milano come presidente della Giunta per la riforma amministrativa e per il censimento nei suoi Stati.

        t Stad Huys van Amsteldam

      (probably by Daumont, Paris) ca. 1750-1800 300 x 450 mm Etching/watercolour t Stad Huys van Amsteldam; L'Hotel de Ville d'Amsterdam; la Casa Configliaria d'Amsterdamo; Das Rath-Hau? zu Amsterdam. pasted on slightly thicker paper. The edges are covered with black paper (for the illumination). Good state. This beautiful illuminated optical view shows Amsterdam city hall and the square in front of it. The etching is coloured with pastel-like colours for the buildings and more vibrant colours for the people and events on the square. The outlines, windows and light sources of the buildings are perforated (dots and figures). At the back of the print we see that the holes are covered with see-through paper. Some of the holes are coated with green, yellow and red paint. This gives the illusion of coloured lights when the print is held in front of a light source.
