        Neu-vermehrt und vollständiges Gesang-Buch, worinnen sowohl die Psalmen Davids, nach D. Ambrosii Lobwassers Ubersetzung hin und wieder verbessert, als auch 700 ... auch mit dem heydelbergischen Catechismo und erbaulichen Gebätern versehen, etc.

      Zu finden bey Joh. Henrich Stocks ältesten Tochter, 1750. An eye-catching and physically pleasing copy of the 1750 printing of the Marburger Gesang-buch with the final section being a printing the text of the Heidelberg catechism, printed in Fraktur (i.e, black letter) as is the rest of the volume. The melodies are sporadically indicated in diamond-shaped notation. => Overall, this is an important text in the liturgies of the Calvinistic and Zwinglian Churches. Binding: Vellum over light wood boards with bevelled edges; round hollow-back spine with false bands created by tooling in black; endpapers of a stencilled gilt leaf -design on orange "wallpaper;" all edges gilt and gauffered. Covers => elaborately tooled all over in black (not embossed with a plaque as was another style of this type of painted vellum binding), and then => painted in red and black. Such bindings as this are known in Germany as "Bauern Einbände," or "Peasant Bindings" -- but, though betraying a strong influence of folk art, they were certainly not for peasants! The style almost certainly developed in Hungary with early examples first appearing in southern Germany, and it was to gain greatest favor in northern Germany and Holland during the 18th century. Provenance: Kovel family to at least 1779; front and rear blank pages filled with family birth and death information in German and English for the Kovel and related families, 1729-79. In the 20th century in the collection of Estelle Doheny with her red morocco bookplate.

        Illustrated manuscript scroll "Haseo Soshi Emaki" [trans.: "Narrative Picture Scroll of Haseo Soshi"], complete, emakimono, manuscript on paper, five paintings in color, five manuscript texts, top & bottom edges of scroll in gold, 38 x 1127 cm., brocade endpapers, in a fitted wooden box

      - No colophon: n.d. [ca. 1750]. An illustrated scroll of great quality of the famous story about Ki no Haseo (845-912), a courtier in the Early Heian Period. Written ca. 13th century, the oldest surviving scroll of this story - ca. 14th century, the Kamakura era - was preserved by the Hosokawa Family, formerly the ruler of the Kumamoto Fiefdom (today the Kumamoto Prefecture). The scroll rests now as an "Important Cultural Property" at the Eisei Bunko Museum in Tokyo. There are other scrolls of this celebrated story, some of which are incomplete or condensed versions, including those at the National Institute of Japanese Literature (Tokyo), the National Diet Library, Kyoto University, the Imperial Household Agency Library, Tokyo National Museum, and the Kyoto Prefectural Library. Our scroll illustrates the five scenes of this story: "1. One evening when Haseo was about to go to the Imperial Palace, he was visited by a stranger with shrewd eyes, who challenged him with a sugoroku (backgammon) game, saying that there was no other who could rival him in the game. Suspicious but tempted by curiosity, Haseo went out with the stranger, who took him to the Imperial gatehouse, Suzaku-mon. 2. The stranger helped Haseo up to the upper story of the gatehouse. Before beginning the game, he offered a 'girl of unearthly beauty' on bet, whereupon Haseo offered his entire property. As the game turned hopeless for the stranger, he betrayed himself as an awesome goblin, but Haseo at last won the game. 3. Deep in the night of the promised day, the man brought to Haseo a beautiful young lady, telling him never to touch her within one hundred days. 4. Eighty days passed. Unable to resist the ever increasing charm of the girl, Haseo embraced her, whereupon she became water and flowed away. He repented, only in vain. 5. About three months later, Haseo was going home in the night from the Imperial Palace, when the stranger came to his vehicle and blamed him for breaking the promise. Haseo barely escaped danger by his prayers to the god of Kitano Tenjin. The stranger was a goblin inhabiting the Suzaku Gate, who had created the girl by assembling beautiful parts of dead women. If she had been left untouched for one hundred days, she would have become a real human being."-Tanaka, Ichimatsu, Nihon emakimono zenshu. Japanese Scroll Paintings, Vol. 18, p. 3. "Pictorial representation of literary materials is one of the most important aspects of Japanese art, for in Japan, pictorial images have always been viewed as an indispensable means of communication. Emaki, the art of narrative painting in handscrolls, reached its peak from the twelfth to the fourteenth century, yet the large number of exciting and beautiful examples from later periods are ample testimony that this art never lost its creative energy, or patronage."-Murase, Miyeko, from the "Introduction" of Tales of Japan. Scrolls and Prints from The New York Public Library (1986). The production of luxury scrolls such as ours employed the finest illustrators and artists of the period. Provenance: stamp of the "Kuyo Bunko" library of the Waseda University scholar Koichi Nakano, a specialist in early Japanese literature. In fine condition. There are several small defects. The first text has two carefully repaired holes, slightly touching three characters. The first painting has two small holes carefully repaired. Hase's sword in the first painting has oxidized. The second text has a little dampstaining and defect touching one character. The fourth painting has a small defect well repaired. The example at the National Institute of Japanese Literature is closely related to our scroll. ? Komatsu, Shigemi, Nihon emaki taisei (1977), Vol. 11, pp. 74-89. Komatsu, Shigemi, Nihon no emaki (1994)-a facsimile of the earliest scroll of this story.

        Padua

      Augsburg 1750 - Spettacolare veduta panoramica di Padova progettata da Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776) . Con il titolo in un cartiglio in alto, affiancato a destra dallo stemma della città. Werner (1690-1776) è nato in Slesia. Durante la sua gioventù condusse una vita avventurosa, lavorando come ingegnere militare e cartografo, viaggiando come medico ciarlatano, lavorando come operatore con un teatro a Praga e traducendo libretti per un gruppo di comici erranti. Ma dopo il suo matrimonio, nel 1718, iniziò una nuova vita e si concentrò sullo sviluppo delle sue innegabili doti artistiche e cartografiche. Queste abilità lo mise in contatto con diversi rivenditori importanti d'arte ed editori in Augsburg, soprattutto gli eredi di Jeremias Wolff (1663-1724). Iniziò a delineare una serie di panorami di città europee, che riscossero un notevole successo commerciale nelle derivazioni a stampa pubblicate in serie da diversi partner della società di Wolff, principalmente di Johann Friedrich Probst ( 1719 o 1721-1781 ) , e poi da suo fratello Georg Balthasar Probst ( 1732-1801). Incisione in rame, margini coevi aggiunti, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Molto rara. Dimensioni 325 990mm

        Etrennes Divertissantes ou Collection d'historiettes agréables; ornée de jolies gravures, qui ont rapport au sujet pour la présente année.

      Maillard de Bresson, [n.d., c. 1750-65]., Paris - Not found in any of the usual online or printed sources, a delightful juvenile almanac, containing ten moral verses each with a vignette, engraved throughout. Though the publisher Maillard de Bresson produced several other almanacs, and this one is quite typical of the genre, it seems to have eluded bibliographers, including Grand-Carteret. The Journal historique et littéraire (January 1756) gives a useful account of the publisher's business: 'M. Maillard de Bressan continue a vendre des caractéres, des desseins & vignettes, des armes à jour, des papiers peints, des sentences, des devises, & forme avec succès la suite de ses fables morales, & instructives pour la jeunesse de l'un et l'autre sexe. It fait des envois auc Communautés Religieuses & à toutes personnes chargées de l'éducation des enfants, ou à des Marchands qui s'adressant à lui. Il demeure actuellement au Collége de Cambray, pres de la rue Saint Jacques, à Paris'. 8vo (150 × 110 mm, leaf size 150 × 95 mm), 11 leaves, including engraved title and 10 plates each with vignette and text, contemporary hand colouring. Each leaf neatly mounted on guards in a later (early twentienth-century) half cloth binding, preserving original Dutch paste paper wrappers. Old manuscript shelf label to verso of upper wrapper.

        La Grande Ruota

      1750 - - RARISSIMO SECONDO STATO DI OTTO, dalla PRIMA EDIZIONE delle CARCERI - Acquaforte, bulino, tinta allo zolfo e bruniture, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Tavola della PRIMA edizione delle 'Carceri'. Esemplare nel secondo stato di otto secondo Robison. Magnifica prova, impressa su spessa carta vergata coeva, margini di circa 8 mm, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Le 'Carceriì in prima edizione sono di eccezionale rarità. Secondo un censimento fatta da Andrew Robison, solo 16 esemplari completi dell'opera in prima tiratura sono noti nelle raccolte pubbliche di tutto il mondo. Senza dubbio la serie più nota e celebrata fra le opere del Piranesi. La serie è databile intorno al 1745, e comprendeva quattordici tavole, includendo il frontespizio che portava il titolo di Invenzioni Capric di Carceri all’acquaforte datte in luce da Giovanni Buzard in Roma, mercante al Corso. Una seconda stesura delle stesse, subito successiva, recava il titolo con il nome dell’editore giustamente corretto in Bouchard. E’ fuori di dubbio che l’idea, assolutamente innovativa, per la realizzazione di questa opera nasce da un collegamento molto stretto con la serie denominata Prima Parte di Architetture non solo per la vicinanza di tempo che intercorre tra i due lavori, ma proprio per il preciso intendimento ideologico che l’artista aveva in quel periodo in fatto di architettura. La serie venne ripubblicata dopo ben quindici anni, nel 1761, ampiamente riveduta e corretta. Il Piranesi non era nuovo a ripensamenti e variazioni sulle proprie opere, ma molto interessante è analizzare il motivo che lo indusse a riproporre, cambiandolo nella forma, questo importante lavoro. Le esperienze archeologiche condotte nello studio che porterà alle Antichità Romane (1756), le polemiche con architetti e le loro teorie del periodo, la consapevolezza di aver affinato ancora la propria tecnica stilistica, e il variato concetto architettonico lo indussero a mettere mano alle Carceri. E’ con questa nuova ed arricchita sapienza incisoria che l’artista va a ripescare le vecchie lastre, e dopo la rielaborazione, le ripresenta nel pieno della figura polemica e della lotta ideologica in fatto di architettura che in quegli anni conduceva. La riproposizione della serie rappresenta per il Piranesi un aspetto ben preciso, ovvero ripresentare, rinforzandolo, il messaggio polemico e di polemica architettonica già affrontato quindi anni prima. Lo scardinamento degli spazi e della prospettiva, della logica e di tutti i principi comuni affermati nei trattati, rottura totale con le leggi tradizionali e gli insegnamenti accademici dell’architettura. Due sono le tavole aggiunte nella seconda edizione, che quindi comprende il frontespizio e quindici lastre. Notevoli le differenze stilistiche tra il corpus dell’opera e le due nuove lastre, dove notevoli sono la complessità di struttura e di composizione architettonica, che dimostrano il cambiamento avvenuto in seguito allo studio archeologico dei grandi monumenti romani. Di diverso aspetto l’effetto emotivo che suscita la visione delle singole opere che compongono la serie, che con il loro aspetto malinconico costituiscono un elemento di perenne richiamo, di inesausta vitalità, e di estrema modernità. I ponti sospesi, le reti, i ballatoi, le scale e quanto altro presente nelle Carceri sono stati esame di numerosi studi, che una copiosa letteratura ha colto sin dal romanticismo, dando loro una grande popolarità, esaltandone le molteplici reazioni emozionali che le stesse conferivano. - THE VERY RARE SECOND STATE, from the FIRST EDITION of CARCERI - Etching, engraving, sulphur tint and burnishing, 1750, signed at lower right. From the Carceri set, from the first edition, first issue. Example in the second state of eigth described by Robison, from the contemporary roman edition.

        Essay d'une Carte Reduite contenant les Parties Connues du Globe Terrestre

      L’Aia 1750 - Magnifico esemplare del mappamondo di Bellin, realizzazto in proiezione mercatoriana. Inciso da J. Van Schley, fu pubblicato all'Aia da Pierre de Hondt, con testo in inglese, francese e olandese. Tratta dal "Histoire Generale des Voyage", Pierre de Hondt, 1757. La mappa riflette le conoscenze dell'epoca, così l'Australasia e il Pacifico nordoccidentale ancora inesplorati, e il Giappone è rappresentato in modo rudimentale. Incisione su rame, grande cartiglio decorativo con il titolo, in ottime condizioni. A beautiful example of Bellin's world map on Mercator's projection. Engraved by J.Van Schley and published in the Hague with English, French and Dutch titles, the map accurately reflects the knowledge of the time - pre-Cook Australasia and the Pacific Northwest remain uncharted, with Japan mapped in a rudimentary way. North America displays the mythical River of the West potentially linking the Pacific to the Great Lakes. From Prevost's "Histoire Generale des Voyage", The Hague, Pierre de Hondt, 1750. Engraving, with decorative rococo and foliate titlepiece, in very good conditions. Dimensioni 680 495mm
