        The Smallest Green Red Indian Parakeet and the Little Black, White and Red Indian Creeper

      1750 - Samuel Dixon, The Smallest Green and Red Indian Parakeet and the Little Black, White and Red Indian Creeper 1750 series, number III 11” x 8 5/8” During the mid-eighteenth century, Irish artist Samuel Dixon invented and popularized a new painting technique known as basso relievo, most notably used to embellish paintings of natural history subjects, especially birds and flowers. This technique used a copper plate to emboss certain areas of a picture, which was then painted with watercolors and highlighted with gouache. The basso relievo paintings of this era are especially unique because the subject of the painting is three-dimensional. Specific parts of the drawing were molded in relief in order to highlight the subject by making it literally stand out from the paper. Dixon published his first set of twelve basso relievo paintings in 1748. The subject of this first set was flowers derived from Nicholas Roberts’ Variae ac multiformes florum species appressal, published in Paris in 1670. The set was advertised in Faulkner’s Dublin Journal in 1748 to encourage nobles and members of the upper classes to purchase the works, which Dixon believed to be both stylish and practical. Dixon intended his painting to have a dual function. Not only did he want the paintings to be used as decoration, he also believed that they should be used as models to be imitated by amateur embroiderers and needleworkers. In 1750, Dixon produced a second set of basso relievo paintings. This set of twelve focused on foreign birds whose images were derived from George Edwards’ Natural History of Uncommon Birds, published in 1743 and 1751. The work of George Edwards, known as the “Father of British Ornithology,” was also the inspiration for Dixon’s third and final set of basso relievo pictures, Foreign and Domestic Birds, which was devoted to an array of exotic and alluring birds. Interestingly, Dixon did not color his own works. All of the basso relievo pictures were painted by three young artists who lived and worked in Dixon’s home in Dublin. The Dixon paintings are preserved in their original japanned frames, each with a beautiful and lustrously decorated black finish imitating East Asian lacquer. Each of the frames has an inscription on the back, providing the name and a description of the bird. Samuel Dixon undoubtedly brought paintings of birds and flowers into fashion the mid-eighteenth century with these delightful works in the basso relievo style, and other artists imitated his popular technique with much success.

        Memoirs concerning Herculaneum, the subterranean city, lately discovered at the foot of Mount Vesuvius

      London: D. Wilson, 1750. <p>[D&#146;Arthenay, Guillaume Marie.] Fordyce, William (translator and editor). Memoirs concerning Herculaneum, the subterranean city, lately discovered at the foot of Mount Vesuvius . . . 8vo. 4, 68pp. London: Printed for D. Wilson, 1750. 202 x 123 mm. Modern full morocco, gilt-lettered front cover. Minor dampstaining and toning, small spot on title, but very good. </p><p>First Edition in English of d&#146;Arthenay&#146;s Mémoire sur la ville souterraine découverte au pied du Mont Vésuve (1748), and one of the first publications in English on the recently discovered lost city of Herculaneum, the ancient Roman city buried in ash during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. </p><p>D&#146;Arthenay&#146;s pamphlet is one of the early unauthorized memoirs on the official excavation of Herculaneum, which had begun in 1738 under the patronage of King Charles VII of Naples. The Neapolitan government, anxious to prevent theft and to exploit the site&#146;s prestige value, severely restricted access to the buried city to all but its own hired scholars and prohibited the publication of any unauthorized descriptions, so despite intense international interest in the site only a few scattered reports of the excavation&#146;s findings leaked out over the following decade. The &#147;Secret of Herculaneum&#148; proved to be too big to keep, however, and starting in the late 1740s a number of unauthorized works on Herculaneum began to be published, written both by Neapolitan scholars and by foreigners such as D&#146;Arthenay, a volcanologist and amateur antiquarian who was then serving as secretary to the French ambassador at Naples. </p><p>Fordyce, a Scotsman about whom little else is known (he is sometimes confused with another William Fordyce, a Scottish physician), was inspired to make his translation of d&#146;Arthenay&#146;s work after visiting Herculaneum in 1749 and &#147;examining the Curiosities they had found there.&#148; Fordyce&#146;s Memoir, which also includes Xiphilinus&#146;s and Pliny&#146;s accounts of Vesuvius&#146;s eruption, appears to be just the second work in English on Herculaneum, preceded only by Allan Ramsay&#146;s translations of letters from the Italian painter Camillo Paderni published in the Philosophical Transactions in 1740.

      1750. 1750 - Highly finished preparatory design for a fresco or tapestry connected to the Albani family, whose coat of arms appears under the left-hand arch crowned with a cardinal&#146;s hat. Under the central arch of the drawing, preceded by a palafreniero, four servants in blue and white livery carry a red baldacchino that covers two figures processing on horseback. One is clearly a secular prince, with his garland crown and red cape, while the other figure is a cardinal wearing a black hat and a red robe. It is possible that the cardinal depicted is either Annibale (1682-1751) or Alessandro (1692-1779) Albani, or their nephew Cardinal Giovan Francesco Albani II (1720-1803). Under the right arch of the fictive architecture, two buildings appear. While three commedia dell&#146;arte figures, who are commonly associated with the Venetian carnevale, appear, the carriage in the background contradicts the possibility that the setting for this event is Venice. Below these three arches, a series of nine crests appear. The personification of death reclines with his scythe behind the coat of arms of the Corsini family (blue and yellow diagonal stripes with a white band through the center). The crown, which signified the rank of the family, has been wrenched off. (The Corsini were made dukes by Urban VIII in the seventeenth century and princes by Clement XII in 1730) This act of vandalism fits well within the long history of enmity between the Corsini and Albani families in the papal court. We have been unable to connect the sheet to a specific project at any Albani residence, but future research should consider the Villa Castelbarco Albani in Vaprio d&#146;Adda, northeast of Milan, whose documentation has proved difficult to obtain. * DBI s.v.

        An Apology for the Life of Mr. Bampfylde-Moore Carew, Commonly call'd the King of the Beggars .

      Printed for R. Goadby and W. Owen [1750?], London - Hardcover, 8vo. xx + iv + 240pp. Old calf, neatly rebacked, with gilt stamped title label between raised bands. Contemporary (?) previous owner's name neatly inked on fore-edge, pages somewhat darkened, but still a very nice, clean copy. The full title reads: An Apology for the Life of Mr. Bampfylde-Moore Carew, Commonly call'd the King of the Beggars; Being an impartial account of his life, from his leaving Tiverton School, at the age of Fifteen, and entering into a Society of Gypsies to the present time; wherein the motives of his conduct will be explained, and the great number of characters and shapes he has appeared in through Great Britain, Ireland and Several other places of Europe be related, with his travels twice through great part of America. A particular account of the Original, Government, Language, Laws and Customs of the Gypsies; their method of electing their King, & c. And a parallel drawn after the manner of Plutarch between Mr. Bampfylde-Moore Carew and Mr. Thomas Jones. Bampfylde Moore, King of the gypsies, was born in July 1693, at Bickley, near Tiverton, where his father was the rector. Following some youthful misadventure he fled home and joined a band of gypsies, beginning a long career as a swindler of great ingenuity. He lived a time in Newfoundland, before returning to England where he married, and, on the death of the famed Gypsy leader Clause Patch, was appointed as "king of the gipsies." He was eventually convicted of vagrancy and transported to Maryland, from where he eventually escaped to Pennsylvania. He continued his artful deceits throughout North America, before returning again to England, and thence to Scotland. He supposedly accompanied the Pretender to Carlisle, and continued, as ever, with his extraordinary deceits and rogueries. He is thought to have died in 1770. Authorship of the book is variously attributed to Robert Goadby or Carew's wife. Some copies of the book are said to have had a frontis-piece, in our experience this was only the later editions, and we have not seen one of this vintage with one. A very nice copy.

        HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS . : Lilio - Narcussus IV; Guernsey-lily (print)

      - Original hand-coloured engraving drawn by Georg Ehret and executed by J. M. Seligmann. Leaf measures 19.9 x 14.2 inches (50.5 x 36 cm). Fine condition. Matted and ready for framing. From Christoph Trew's magnificent HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS OMNEM PER ANNUM SUPERBIENS FLORIBUS published in three volumes over a 36 year period from 1750-1786. Painted in a more opaque gouache to resemble a painting rather than the traditional practice of using translucent water-colours that allowed more of the engraving to show through. Each piece was meant to capture the flower at the peak of it's beauty instead of focusing solely on scientific detail. Ehret contributed 44 of the 180 illustrations in the entire work and is the single most important botanical artist of the era. HORTUS NITIDISSIMUS is considered to be one of the most sumptuous of the florilegia. Being one of the most elusive of the great flower books, the opportunity to own one of these leaves is reserved for only the most discriminating collectors.

        An Account of Sir Isaac Newtons Philosophical Discoveries in Four Books

      A Millar, UK 1750 - 2nd Edition 1750. This is a study of Newton&#146;s discoveries, written by a friend and disciple. Maclaurin (1698-1746), was the greatest of the 18th-century writers on fluxions after Newton; his Treatise on Fluxions (1742) has been described as the earliest logical and systematic publication of the Newtonian methods. Newton had great respect for Maclaurin&#146;s mathematical abilities, and he personally recommended him for a professorship at the University of Edinburgh. Some time after Newton died in 1727 John Conduitt asked [Scottish mathematician Colin MacLaurin (1698-1746)] to collaborate in the writing of his biography; the project lost momentum with Conduitt's death in 1737 but MacLaurin continued with his part in it and the work was published posthumously in 1748 as "An Account of Sir Isaac Newton's Philosophical Discoveries." **** MacLaurin discusses Newton's method of investigation and of 'philosophizing', as well as his discoveries, and begins with a long history of natural philosophy since the ancients, in which he again asserts the importance for religion of sound natural philosophy. Though a number of other general expositions of Newton's thought were published during the eighteenth century, MacLaurin's Account has long been recognized as the leading authoritative statement of mainstream Newtonianism. As with his prize-winning Treatise on Percussion of 1724, one of the priorities of his Account was to combat the rival natural philosophy promulgated by the followers of Leibniz" Bound in full leather. 6 folding paltes.

        Manuscrit touchant les ville & cité d'Arras, et les comtés de Flandres et Artois. Concernant différentes particularités très curieuses touchant les dits paÿs. Copié sur une copie reposante dans la Bibliothèque de la Société littéraire d'Arras.

      S.l. [Arras], s.d., (v. 1750), - 3 parties en un fort vol. in-4, [404] ff. n. ch., couverts d'une écriture épaisse et lisible (environ 20/25 lignes par page), basane marbrée, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, pièce de titre cerise, double filet doré sur les coupes, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Coiffe inférieure et coins un peu rognés, mais bon exemplaire. Comme l'indique le titre secondaire du f. 2, l'ouvrage, sans doute rédigé à Arras au milieu du XVIIIe siècle, est une compilation faite à partir des données fournies par deux historiens artésiens : 1. Ferri ou Ferréol de Locre (1569-1614), curé de Saint-Nicolas d'Arras, et compositeur du Chronicon Belgicum ab anno CCLVIII ad annum usque MDC pertinuo conductum, qui ne parut qu'en 1616, après sa mort. 2. Guillaume Gazet (1554-1612), curé de Sainte-Marie-Madeleine d'Arras, dont la production historique locale est très abondante et répartie sur une quinzaine de titres. Le propos du compilateur est clair et typique d'une époque où l'étude de l'histoire locale ou régionale ne savait encore se détacher du moule chroniquaire : il s'agit d'affecter des événements signifiants, "remarquables" à chaque année, en remontant le plus haut possible. De fait, les deux premières parties sont structurées de façon strictement chronologique, après une brève introduction à chaque fois, et vont respectivement de 282 à 1491, puis de 1492 à 1600. La troisième partie, quant à elle, contient un "Supplément" dont les données viennent s'insérer dans celles des deux parties précédentes. D'après les indications du titre, l'original copié se trouvait dans la bibliothèque de la Société littéraire d'Arras : fondée en 1737, devenue Académie royale des Belles-Lettres d'Arras en 1773, et transformée en 1816, après l'intermède révolutionnaire, en Académie d'Arras, avait évidemment comme terrain d'études favori les régions artésiennes et flamandes.

        Veduta della Facciata della Basilica di S. Croce in Gerusalemme

      Paris 1750 - Hind 11 (4th State, First Paris Edition)John Wilton-Ely 173The watermarks that is present is difficult to determine due to the heavy inkFrom the important series "Veduta de 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. 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. San Fr [Attributes: First Edition]

        Carte des nouvelles decouvertes au nord de la Mer du Sud, tant à l&#146;Est de la Siberie et du Kamtchatka, qu&#146;à l&#146;Quest de la Nouvelle France. Dressee sur les memories de Mr. Del&#146;Isle. par Philippe Buache . et presentee a l&#146;Academie. du 8 Avril 1750,

      1750 - Desde Alaska hasta el norte del Pacífico, dibujado en proyección esférica. En 1737 Delisle hizo otra versión, durante su estancia en San Petersburgo. Refleja los descubrimientos de los rusos en el área en 1723, 1732 y 1741, los trayectos de los dos primeros viajes al estrecho de Bering, el viaje de Delisle junto con el capitán Tchirikow en 1741, la ruta de los galeones en 1743 y otros. Refleja la teoría de Buache en un mapa por primera vez. Un mapa históricamente importante que fue presentado según se informa a las ciencias del DES de Academie en 1750 en que Delisle leyó su memoria. Un ejemplo muy agradable de la edición de DeZauche, circa publicado 1780. Pintado a mano, 63,5 x 45,8 cm, bello ejemplar.This is the scarce first state of this cornerstone map of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. It depicts the discoveries of the Russians in 1723, 1732 and 1741, the tracks of Bering's first and second voyages, Joseph Nicolas Delisle's voyage with Capt. Tchirikow in 1741, the track of De Frondat's voyage of 1709, and the route of the Galleons in 1743. But more importantly it features the imaginary cartographic theories of Philippe Buache for the first time on a printed map. The west coast of North America is entirely fictitious north of Cap Blanc with an enormous Sea of the West, Lac Valasco, Isle of Bernarda. A network of rivers and lakes making up most of a Northwest Passage is derived from the apocryphal voyages of the Spanish admiral Bartholome de Fonte. A historically important map that was presented as reports to the sciences of Academie's DES in 1750 in which Delisle read his memories. A very agreeable example of DeZauche's edition, circa published 1780. Hand painted, beautiful copy. This extremely rare and important map have been presented by Joseph-Nicolas Delisle to the Academie des Sciences in Paris on the 8 April, 1750. It may not have been published, however, until it was issued in 1752 with the Explication de la carte des nouvelles decouvertes au nord de la mer sud. A commentary account of 18 pages which is accompanying the map is unfortunately missing here. The original map presented here is based on observations made by Louis Delisle de la Croyére (Joseph-Nicolas&#146;s brother), during the Vitus J. Bering Expedition of which Delisle de la Croyére was a member. The map based on the second Bering expedition is certainly the earliest produced outside Russia. The track of Admiral Bartholome de Fonte (Howgego I, F 55) is laid along the coast, omitted in the next issue of the map. Fonte&#146;s track should demonstrate a possible discovery of the Northwest Passage which many geographers accepted it, and many maps of the latter part of the eighteen century will be found which display Fonte&#146;s alleged discoveries and the vast Sea of the West in the northern part of North America near the northwest coast.

        Successi diversi traggici et amorosi in Napoli et altrove a Napolitani, cominciando dalli Re Aragonesi.

      1750 - Cm. 20, cc. (2) 60 (4) 221 + 1 cb. Legatura del tempo in piena pergamena con titoli calligrafici al dorso. Ex libris nobiliare irlandese. Esemplare fresco ed in eccellente stato di conservazione, stilato in grafia chiara e ben leggibile. Interessante e curiosa compilazione che elenca gli atti amorosi di una lunga serie di personaggi, prevalentemente appartenenti alla nobiltà napoletana. L'indice delle due parti di cui si compone il volume è posto dopo la carta 60 ed elenca i circa 40 nomi di uomini e donne le cui piccanti biografie sono oggetto della narrazione. Il presente manoscritto appartiene alla tradizione letteraria minore napoletana sei-settecentesca ed è spesso identificato come "Manoscritto Corona" perchè si ritiene fosse stato stilato dai fratelli Ascanio e Silvio Corona (in realtà nomi appartenenti a persone dall'identità solo parzialmente individuata).
