        Della storia di Genova dal trattato di Worms fino alla pace d'Aquisgrana. Libri quattro.

      Soliani, Modena 1750 - In-4 (305x225 mm.), pp. (2), 563, (1, bianca), con 1 grande carta topografica più volte ripiegata in fine recante i "contorni di Genova e delle due valli di Polcevera, e Bisagno con sue adiacenze" incisa dal toscano Giuseppe Benedetti (1707-1782). Frontespizio in rosso e nero con vignetta in rame. Legatura in tutto cartonato alla rustica coevo, con rinforzo in carta al dorso. Ottimo esemplare, con fogli ancora in barbe. Seconda edizione, aumentata del quarto libro (relativo agli accadimenti degli anni 1748 e 1749), impressa dal modenese Soliani con la falsa data di Leida. Dobbiamo a Marcello Staglieno l'individuazione dell'ignoto autore di questa monografia (Giornale Ligustico di Archeologia, Arte e Storia, An. IX, Fasc. 1--2, 1834, pag. 401 e passim), il quale corresse così un'errata attribuzione di paternità riconducente al plenipotenziario Francesco Maria Doria fatta dall'Accinelli, condivisa dallo Spotorno e sostenuta fino a tempi recenti anche dal Melzi. I carteggi muratoriani rivelano oggi il piano e il calendario dell'opera, illustrati epistolarmente dal nostro autore al grande bibliotecario modenese. Fu quest'ultimo a far stampare l'opera dal Soliani, impiegando in parte le risme di carta inutillizzate per la stampa delle sua "Antichità". Bibliografia: Lozzi, 1340. Spotorno, V, p. 64.

        Monsr. Le Brun's Expressions of the Passions of the Soul.

      I. Tinny, London. N.D. circa 1750 - First U.K. edition. Folio. 21 pages printed on rectos only. Title-page engraved cartouche, 19 plates engraved by John Tinny. Original plain grey wrappers. Described by Louis XIV as "the greatest French artist of all time", Le Brun's posthumously published treatise, Méthode pour apprendre à dessiner les passions (1698) in which he promoted the expression of the emotions in painting, had immense influence on art theory for the next two centuries. The passions illustrated, with explanatory notes, are: attention, admiration, admiration with astonishment, veneration, rapture, desire, joy with tranquility, laughter, acute pain, simple bodily pain, sadness, weeping, compassion, scorn, horror, terror or fright, anger, hatred or jealousy and despair. ". Passion is a Motion of the Soul, residing in the sensitive Part, and makes it follow what it thinks good, and fly from what it thinks hurtful. [Le Brun] says also, that what causes any Passion in Soul, causes particular Motions of the Body, the chief of which he describes. Then, he supposes that the Soul receives the Impression of the Passions in the Brain, and feels the Effects of it at the Heart; and that as the Brain is the Part of the Body where the Soul more immediately exercises its Functions, so the Face is that where it more particularly shews what it feels; for this Reason it is called the Mirror of the Soul." Covers stained and partially defective at inside lower corner of top panel and at spine. Title-page stained at lower margin. Edges a little dusty and worn. Good, with the plates in very good indeed state. Very rare. Copac lists only two copies. No copy in the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

All works inside in excellent condition. Exlibris of Richard Buxton on pastedown. PILON, FREDERICK (17501788), actor and dramatist, was born in Cork in 1750. After receiving a fairly good education in his native city, he was sent to Edinburgh University to study medicine, but he took to the stage instead. He first appeared at the Edinburgh Theatre as Oroonoko, but with small success, and consequently joined an inferior strolling company, with which he remained for some years. He finally drifted to London, where Griffin the bookseller employed him on the Morning Post. After Griffin's death had deprived him of this position, he seems to have worked as an obscure literary hack until he began to write for the stage. He was soon employed with some regularity at Covent Garden Theatre. There, on 4 Nov. 1778, The Invasion, or a Trip to Brighthelmstonea moderate farce, according to Genestwas performed, with Lee Lewis in the chief part (Cameleon) on 4 Nov. 1778. It was repeated twenty-four times during the season, and was several times revived. The Liverpool Prize followed at the same theatre on 22 Feb. 1779, with Quick in the chief part. Illumination, or the Glazier's Conspiracy, a prelude, suggested by the illuminations on Admiral Keppel's acquittal, was acted on 12 April 1779 for Lee Lewis's benefit. The Device, or the Deaf Doctor, when first produced on 27 Sept. 1779, met with great opposition, but, revived with alteration as The Deaf Lover, on 2 Feb. 1780, it achieved some success The Siege of Gibraltar, a musical farce (25 April 1780), celebrated Rodney's victory The Humours of an Election, a farce (19 Oct. 1780), satirised electoral corruption Thelyphthora, or more Wives than One, a farce, satirising the work of the name by Martin Madan [q. v.], was produced on 8 March 1781, and was damned the second night Aerostation, or the Templar's Stratagem (29 Oct. 1784), dealt with the rage of the day for balloons Barataria, or Sancho turned Governor (29 March 1785), was adapted from D'Urfey. Meanwhile Pilon deserted Covent Garden for Drury Lane, where he produced, on 18 May 1782, The Fair American, a comic opera, which was not very skilfully plagiarised from the Adventures of Five Hours. Pilon's last piece, a comedy, He would be a Soldier, after being rejected by Colman, was performed at Covent Garden on 18 Nov. 1786, and achieved considerable success. In 1787 Pilon married a Miss Drury of Kingston, Surrey he died at Lambeth on 17 Jan. 1788. His pieces were clever, if of ephemeral interest. Besides the plays mentioned, all of which he published, Pilon issued The Drama, an anonymous poem, 1775, and An Essay on the Character of Hamlet as performed by Mr. Henderson (anonymous), 8vo, London, 1785 ? An edition of G. A. Stevens's Essay on Heads appeared in 1785, with additions by Pilon. (DNB - Dictionary of National Biography - Article by David James O'Donoghue) __________________________________________ John O'Keeffe (June 24, 1747 February 4, 1833) was an Irish actor and dramatist. He wrote a number of farces and amusing dramatic pieces, many of which had great success. Among these are Tony Lumpkin in Town (1778), Wild Oats (1791), Love in a Camp, and Omai (1785), an account of the voyages of the Tahitian explorer Omai. O'Keeffe was born in Dublin in 1747 to Roman Catholic parents and was educated by the Jesuits. After showing a talent for drawing he studied art at an Academy in Dublin, but grew increasingly more interested in the theatre. After a two-year trip to London, where he became an admirer of David Garrick, he settled on a career as an actor and playwright. O'Keeffe wrote his first play The She Gallant when he was twenty, and it was performed in Dublin at the Smock Alley Theatre. In 1774 O'Keeffe was married to Mary Heaphy. In 1777 O'Keefe moved to London. The following year he wrote Tony Lumpkin in Town a sequel to Oliver Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer and sent it to the manager of the Haymarket Theatre. The play was successfully produced, and O'Keefe regularly wrote for the Haymarket thereafter. Between 1782 and 1796 O'Keefe wrote around 28 plays and comic operas. The Poor Soldier (1783), a comic opera with words and lyrics by O'Keeffe and music by William Shield, was a musical farce about the lives of British soldiers returning home after the American War of Independence. O'Keeffe also wrote The Son-in-Law, Agreeable Surprise which includes the lyrical poem Amo, Amas, and Castle of Andalusia. O'Keefe had problems with his eyes ever since he had fallen into the River Liffey in his youth. From the mid-1770s O'Keefe increasingly lost his sight, and from 1781 his plays had to be dictated by him. In spite of this he was a prolific writer and was the most produced playwright in London in the last quarter of the 18th century. Some of his songs set to music by Arnold and Shield, such as I am a Friar of Orders Grey, and The Thorn, are still popular. In 1800 a benefit performance was staged for him at Covent Garden. In 1826 O'Keefe wrote his memoirs which covered his life experiences and various interactions with the leading artistic figures of his day. The memoirs were dictated to his daughter Adelaide O'Keefe (1776-1865) who oversaw their publication. The same year he was awarded a pension by George IV. He died in 1833 in Southampton and was buried there. In the 19th century the essayist William Hazlitt described O'Keeffe as the "English Molière" observing "in light, careless laughter and pleasant exaggeration of the humorous, we have no equal to him". His Wild Oats has been revived in 1976, 1995 and 2012, by the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal National Theatre and the Bristol Old Vic respectively.

One of Kotzebue's books was burned during the Wartburg festival in 1817. He was murdered in 1819 by Karl Ludwig Sand, a militant member of the Burschenschaften. This murder gave Metternich the pretext to issue the Carlsbad Decrees of 1819, which dissolved the Burschenschaften, cracked down on the liberal press, and seriously restricted academic freedom in the states of the German Confederation.

        Delphinium

      - Ca. 2nd and 3rd quarters, 18th century. Watercolor with gouache and gold leaf on vellum 7 x 5 ¾ ", Framed: 18 x 15 ½ " The present composition captures with striking vividness a flower from the Delphinium genus of perennial flowering plants found throughout the Northern Hemisphere and on the high mountains of tropical Africa. Various delphiniums are cultivated as ornamental plants, for traditional and native plant gardens. The numerous hybrids and cultivars are primarily used as garden plants, providing height at the back of the summer border, in association with roses, lilies, and geraniums. The lush texture, deep blueness, and overall sheen of Dietzsch’s portrait of this flower gives the impression that the plant is suspended in time; its ephemeral, delicate life immortalized for eternity. The Dietzsches were an important family of painters, engravers, and musicians that flourished in Nuremberg during the eighteenth century. The patronage of Dr. Christoph Trew, the great botanist and bibliographer, made Nuremberg one of the foremost centers of botanical art in the world, and the Dietzsch family was one of the most noted of the era. Barbara Regina Dietzsch is particularly well known for her marvelous renderings of flowers and fruit in watercolor and gouache. Employed at the court of Nuremberg, she painted primarily in watercolor and gouache and produced extensively for engravers there. Her work was of such outstanding quality that it was used by Trew and the great flower painter Georg Ehret for a number of plates in the Hortus Nitidissimis(1750-86). Indeed, even at the time of its production, Dietzsch’s art was much sought after by collectors in both the Netherlands and England, and it is recorded that some of the best known painters of the time even accepted her works as a form of payment, signaling the type of celebrated reputation she was able to attain within her lifetime—a celebration that has only continued to grow ever since. Like most of her family's work, Barbara Regina Dietzsch's watercolors are often characterized by the use of a black or dark brown ground, and it is partly upon the basis of this that the current attribution has been based. Ehret also occasionally placed his bouquets on a dark background, but these are not nearly as successful as Dietzsch's in making the subject come to life. Various examples of her work can be found in the Broughton Collection at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, England and in each the dark ground is present. What separates the work of Barbara Regina from that of her other family members is the remarkable clarity of depiction and skill in rendering. With unbelievable mastery and stylistic power, Dietzsch overcame contemporary estimations of women's inferiority in the field of art, creating watercolors of distinctive splendor.
