        Carte Des Possessions Angloises & Francoises Du Continent De L'Amerique Spetentionale.

      R. and J. Ottens, Amsterdam 1755 - First issue of the Ottens map of the French and English possessions, published on the eve of the French and Indian War. In 1755, Ottens issued a Dutch version of Jean Palairet's important map. The map showed the French and English territorial claims on the eve of the French and Indian War, with the colouring reflecting those claims. The English possessions are shown in yellow, with much of the region between the Appalachians and the Mississippi shown in pink reflecting territory occupied by English settlers or "peuples allies de l'Angleterre." The French claims are coloured in green, encompassing much of Canada and all of a vast Louisiana. French forts are circled in red and a red boundary line extends through Acadia to Lake Ontario. A second issue of the map was published following the Treaty of Paris which ended the war. In that issue, the date has been removed from the title and the colouring keys removed from either side of the scale of miles and the hand colouring on the map reflects the new boundaries following the war. A rare and colourful map of North America published on the eve of the war. Sellers & Van Ee, Maps and Charts of North America and the West Indies 58; McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps 755.9; Phillips, A List of Maps of America , p. 575.

Antique-style three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, gilt leather label. A bit of light foxing. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage. Very good. First published in London the same year, this is the very scarce first American edition. A second Boston edition (identified as such on the titlepage) was also issued in 1755, due to the great demand for the work. Huske reviews the history of North American settlement from an English point of view, then describes French aggressions in Nova Scotia, in Maine, penetration into upper New York and the Ohio country and throughout the South. Huske urges immediate war to remedy the situation. "This book was, at the time of its appearance, both inflammatory and influential. It set forth British aims in North America, making a clear, vigorous, and concise attack on the French pretension..." - Lande. Often attributed to John Huske, the North American Imprints Project, DNB, and British Museum CATALOGUE list the author as Ellis Huske (John Huske's younger brother). Ellis Huske was postmaster in Boston in 1734, preceded Benjamin Franklin as deputy postmaster general of the colonies, and was the publisher of the BOSTON WEEKLY POSTBOY for some twenty years.

        Le Mouton Favori

      Paris: chez l'Auteur, rue S. Jacques, au dessus des Jacobins, 1755. A charming Rococo print by the Parisian engraver Robert Gaillard, after the celebrated genre painter Charles Eisen. Charles Eisen (1720-1778) was renowned for his charming genre paintings, which were immensely popular with an art market eager for romantic images. Eisen's charm and grace, as well as his considerable talent, brought him to the attention of the King's mistress, Madame du Pompadour. Through her influence Eisen soon became a popular Court painter and a professor at the Acadèmie de Saint-Luc. Eisen was granted the honor of instructing Madame Pompadour in drawing, a privilege, which insured court favours as well as aristocratic patronage. Like Boucher, Eisen rejuvenated the 'pastoral tradition' in French art. His idealic images are wonderful examples of the decorative paintings and prints that would have adorned the walls of aristocratic homes across France. Here, Eisen depicts a young couple seated in a woodland setting, clearly enthralled with one another The man, who is obviously a shepherd, places a rose into his lover's hair while she threads a ribbon around the neck of the favored lamb. A goat wither her kids resting on her on one side, a devoted dog on the other, add to the general atmosphere of affection. All of nature seems to yearn for the happiness and union of the young couple, and so, like many Rococo pastoral scenes, it is symbolic rather than literal, an emblem of the transformative power of love. The common view that scenes like these are saccharine and sentimental completely misses the point. Le Blanc, Manuel de L'Amateur D'Estampes , p. 261, No. 47. Engraving. Printed on laid paper with watermark. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed on the bottom margin below the publication line. Small tear on right margin.

        Plate 22 - Lithodad crab

      1755 - Albert Seba Illustrated plate from Locupletissimi Rerum Naturalium Thesauri Amsterdam: Wetsten, Smith and Waesberg, 1734-1755. Hand-colored copperplate engraving (later color) 29 1/4” x 39 3/4” framed Albert Seba’s magnificent Thesauri is a catalogue of his personal natural history collection, an immense conglomeration of specimens of a number of exotic plant and animal life. The son of a Frisian peasant who became rich in the service of the Dutch East India Company, Seba was an apothecary practicing in Amsterdam when he began to collect. His scientific interests and curiosity motivated him to amass this collection on a series of travels to the East and West Indies, and from purchases he made of specimens collected by travelers the world over. Many of the snakes, plants, fish and shells illustrated and described in his Thesauri were based on the specimens Seba collected in this “cabinet of curiosities.” In fact, many of the extravagant designs of the engravings were copies of the arrangements of the specimens in the drawers of his cabinet and the walls upon which he hung his collection, which in this way became a sort of predecessor of the modern museum. The collection was a valuable source to European natural historians, many of whom would not have had the opportunity to travel to the far flung destinations where the specimens originated. It is documented, for example, that Carolus Linneas visited the collection when he was in Amsterdam. These fine engravings made Seba’s unparalleled collection accessible to a much wider spectrum of enthusiasts, and modern viewers, too, can appreciate the stylized compositions and near-abstract quality of their stylized, fanciful compositions.

        A View of New Palace Yard Westminster: Veüe de New Palace Yard a Westminster

      Published by John Boydell Engraver at the Unicorn the corner of Queen Street in Cheapside, London 1755 - A wonderful "vue d'optique" of Westminster London with stunning early colour. During the eighteenth century "vues d'optique" or "perspective views" became extremely popular in England and Europe. Like other optical prints they capitalized on a connoisseur market eager for the latest novelty. English publishers such as John Bowles and Robert Sayer had great success with these optical views, which quickly developed into a collecting craze that swept through print shops on both sides of the Channel. "Vues d'optiques" were specifically designed to create the illusion of perspective when viewed with a zograscope or perspective glass. These viewing devices used a series of reflecting mirrors to enhance the illusion of depth in the print, creating a veritable "view" for the onlooker. Typically these prints depicted city or landscape views, and were horizontal in format. They had roughly the same dimensions and were sold with heavy opaque colouring, so as to show the tints when viewed through the lens. In their heyday, optical prints were a technical revolution; they could be seen in almost every fashionable drawing room, and were enjoyed by the poorer classes in print shops or at traveling fairs. For a small fee the citizens of Europe and England could travel the world without leaving their village. The "vue d'optique" was the first medium to bring the visible appearance of the wider world to a large European public. Ironically the artists and engravers who created these prints rarely had first hand knowledge of the scenes depicted, hence the views were often not as accurate as they were advertised to be. As a result of their constant handling optical prints such as these are rare, especially in good condition. They are not only beautiful images but also a fascinating glimpse into the history of printmaking. John Boydell was one of the most influential figures in the history of English printmaking. He was not only an accomplished engraver and an industrious publisher, but also a print seller who came to dominate the English print trade. He is best known as the originator of the Shakespeare Gallery , which made him one of the most successful print-sellers of his time. Clayton, The English Print 1688-1802 , 140-14. Engraving with original colour. Very good condition.

        The Palace of St. Cloud on the side of the Orange Garden / Vue de Chateau de St. Cloud du coste de L'Orangerie

      Printed and sold for Bowles & Carver, at their Map and Print Warehouse, No. 69 in St. Paul's Church Yard, London 1755 - A magnificent view of a water-fountain display in the gardens of St. Cloud Palace outside Paris, by the celebrated engraver Jacques Rigaud. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a market developed among English and European travelers and vicarious travelers for prints of the picturesque places in prominent countries. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, artists and printmakers began to publish topographical prints of these important sights and architectural attractions. These prints in turn encouraged wider public recognition of and pride in the national treasures. Jacques Rigaud made a name for himself in both France and England as one of the most accomplished landscape engravers. He dedicated his artistic life to producing delicate prints of the beauty of his native land and executed a large series of works depicting France's stately homes. He also worked in England where he was commissioned to illustrate the celebrated gardens at Stowe. Rigaud's work influenced an entire generation of English and French printmakers; his delicate formal engravings established a classical format for topographical prints, which would be used until the nineteenth century. The magnificent St. Cloud palace was a summer residence for Napoleon I., Louis XVIII., Charles X., Louis Philippe and Napoleon III. Overlooking Paris, the Palace was famed for its magnificent gardens and grand water fountains, beautifully depicted in Rigaud's stunning print. Le Blanc, Manuel de L'Amateur D'Estampes III, p. 337, (Le Blanc mistakenly confuses Jacques Rigaud with his nephew Jean Baptiste Rigaud and attributes Jacques' work wrongly) Clayton, The English Print 1688-1802 p. 156-157. Hand-coloured engraving. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition. Framed in a handsome gold-leaf frame with a gold washline mount. Image size: 8 x 16 1/2 inches.

        Carolinae Floridae nec non Insularum Bahamensium cum partibus adjacendibus delineato ad exemplar Londinense in lucem edita

      Seligmann, Nuremberg 1755 - A fine copy of the first and only Continental edition of a Map of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands, here with particularly fine period hand-colouring. The English edition of this map (first published in Vol.II of Mark Catesby's Natural History of South Carolina, and the Bahama Islands , London, 1743) is now virtually unobtainable. This has greatly increased the desirability of this fine Continental version, which is itself quite scarce. Seligmann's Sammlung verschiedener auslaendischer und seltener Vögel was published in nine parts between 1749 and 1776, and included a German translation of Catesby's work with re-engraved versions of his images, including the present map. Catesby's work was the first natural history of American flora and fauna. Catesby scholar G.F. Frick calls this map "a good representation of the better English ideas about the geography of North America" in the period. It is not generally recognized that the English version of this map appeared in two states. On the first state of 1743, the territory on both sides of the Mississippi was coloured green, to indicate that the entire region was in the hands of the French. A second state was included in the third edition of the Natural History in 1771, altered to show the political realignment brought about by the Treaty of Paris in 1763. The territory on the east bank of the Mississippi, which had been acquired by Britain, was now coloured green; the territory to the West, which now belonged to Spain, was coloured blue. The present German edition corresponds with the English first state. The map shows Southeastern North America as far west as the Mississippi River, plus the nearby Caribbean islands of the Bahamas, Cuba, Jamaica, and Hispaniola. Cf. Cumming, The Southeast in Early Maps (1998 ed.), 210 & 292. Copper-engraved map, with full original hand colouring, in good condition apart from an expertly repaired split to an old fold.
