DONOWELL, After John (fl.1753-1786)
London: Printed for John Bowles & Son, at the Black Horse in Cornhill, Robert Sayer at the Golden Buck in Fleet Street, & John Ryall at Hogarth's Head in Fleet Street, circa 1755. Engraving. Very good condition. 11 5/8 x 16 3/4 inches (visible). Gilt frame. Frame size: 20 7/8 x 24 3/4 inches. A fine print of the picturesque buildings of Exeter College, most likely from a series of eight topographical views of Oxford engraved by William Woollett (1735-1785) after Donowell and originally published by his mentor John Tinney. Originally known as Stapeldon Hall after its founder, Walter de Stapeldon, Bishop of Exeter, Exeter College was founded in 1314. For several decades, its student body was comprised entirely of clergyman primarily from southwestern England; however, over time, it gradually became more diverse. Many of the buildings in the school's quadrangle were completed by the early eighteenth century, a period during which the caliber and number of students attending the college and the university as a whole flagged. By Victorian times, Exeter reestablished its reputation for academic excellence and underwent a significant increase in attendance. Not much is known about the architect and engraver John Donowell, who executed a number of topographical prints and drawings, primarily of London, including views of the Ironmongers' Hall, St. Giles in the Fields Church, Chiswick House, and Marlyebone Gardens. He exhibited his works during the 1760s at the Free Society of Artists and at the Incorporated Society of Artists and Royal Academy in the 1770s and 1780s. Cf … [Click Below for Full Description]

RIGAUD, Jacques (1681-1754)
London: Sold by J. Boydell, Engraver at the Unicorn the corner of Queen Street in Cheapside, 1755. Hand-coloured engraving. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition. Framed in a beautiful gold-leaf frame with a cream washline mount. Image size: 8 1/2 x 17 inches. A magnificent view of a stunning chateau in Chantilly, France by the celebrated landscape engraver Jacques Rigaud. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a trend developed amongst English and European artists and printmakers, which sought to visually record their country's natural beauties. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, artists and printmakers began to publish topographical prints of important sights and architectural attractions. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These topographical prints were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those vicarious tourists who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. By joining this printing trend Jacques Rigaud made a name for himself in both France and England, and became one of the most successful French landscape engravers. He dedicated his artistic life to producing delicate engraving of national beauties across France. He executed a large series of works depicting France's stately homes and he 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 f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Den nötta ursprungligen blinddekorerade ryggen defekt med förlust av skinn och merparten av titeletiketten. Även nedtill på ryggen finns en mindre skada. Några blad med revor i nedre marginalen, ett fåtal gånger in i texten. Litet hål och en bokstavs förlust på s. 3 i del II. Sista bladet i del IV med obetydlig pappersförlust i yttre marginalen samt ett litet hål utan egentlig bokstavsförlust. Med spår av borttaget exlibris och Lefebvre de Villebrunes namnteckning på titelbladet daterad 1791. Jean-Baptiste Lefebvre de Villebrune (1732-1809) förmodas ha behärskat tretton språk, däribland svenska. De omfattande språkkunskaperna utgjorde grunden till en omfångsrik översättargärning. Bland hans översättningar, som karaktäriserats som varken eleganta eller trogna originalen, kan exempelvis nämnas en utgåva av Cervantes noveller. Han var även under det stormiga 1790-talet en kort tid chef för Frankrikes nationalbibliotek.

[French and Indian War]:
London. 1755.. [2],190 [i.e. 150]pp. Antique-style speckled calf, spine gilt, leather label. Very good. An important pamphlet, written as two letters, placing the blame for the situation in North America on the bad management in America as well as Europe, and including remarks on Washington's mission to the Ohio and the importance of that region and the claims of the French, with some material on Nova Scotia. The anonymous author draws upon the writings of Archibald Kennedy and Cadwallader Colden, and on Franklin's OBSERVATIONS UPON THE INCREASE OF MANKIND (then circulating in manuscript, but as yet unpublished), and William Smith's BRIEF STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA. John Huske was incensed by the present work, especially by the author's impartiality and the criticism of the British colonists' treatment of the Indians, and voiced his anger in his PRESENT STATE OF NORTH AMERICA, published the same year. "This anonymous work is a calm and dispassionate statement of the case of England against the encirclement policy of France...In emphasizing the importance of the Indians to the English, the author exposes the abuses which the Indians had suffered at the hands of the colonists" - Streeter. The present copy is without the map, not found in all copies. Quite rare. BELL S474. DIONNE II:507. GAGNON II:2042. HOWES S903, "b." SABIN 90601. JCB I:1092. STREETER SALE 1011. LANDE 809. VLACH 698.

[Peru]: Garcia y Buendia, Manuel Joseph:
Huancavelica. June 7 and 18, 1755.. [12] leaves including [22]pp. manuscript on paper fiscally stamped for 1749-50 and 1755-56. Folio. Notarial certificate of the contract, signed by public scrivener Fernando de Arana, with his paraph on each leaf. Old folds, very minor worm holes in blank margin, else very good. This is an official copy of the contract admitting Don Manuel Joseph Garcia de Buendia to the exercise of his right as an adult to work as one of the privileged Miners of Huancavelica, the mine which provided a very large part of the mercury needed in Peru for the refinement of the silver ore of Potosi. The agreement consists of the transcript of a formal declaration by Garcia de Buendia of his coming of age, and a request that he be allotted the services of "37 1/2 Indians" [sic] personally by the Guild of Miners (instead of them being supplied to the seven trustees of his mining interest as heretofore mentioned). Garcia de Buendia was the son of the Marquess of Castellon, director of the royal tobacco monopoly in Lima, who, owing to absence, had been unable to care for his son's affairs himself. For generations the family had been among the privileged members of the oligarchic circle of Huancavelica miners who enjoyed a royal allotment of Indian workers from the MITA (the Peruvian form of CORVÉE).

HAY, William
London: R. and J. Dodsley, 1755. 3rd Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. London, R. and J. Dodsley, 1755 [third edition]/ 1754. Octavo, [iv], 81, [3] pages. Early full calf worn at the extremities, with slight loss to the ends of the spine; spine lightly scorched in one small section and heavily rubbed, removing most of the gilt-decorated surface and the title-label; outer hinges broken but the covers are held firmly in place by the cords; a very good copy. William Hay (1695-1755), author and MP, wrote this 'autobiographical polemic addressing contemporary demonizing attitudes towards disfigurement [which] has been under-recognized as a key intervention in the history of disability' (Shuttleton: Smallpox and the Literary Imagination, 1660-1820). Bound together with [ASGILL, J.]: An Argument proving, that according to the Covenant of Eternal Life revealed in the Scripture, Man may be translated from hence into that Eternal Life, without passing through Death, altho the Humane Nature of Christ himself could not be translated until he had passed through Death ([London?], 1700; 106 pages), and [ASGILL, J.]: Mr Asgill's Defence upon his Expulsion from the House of Commons of Great Britain in 1707 [London, 1712; 88 pages).

[Deleyre, Alexandre]
Amsterdam: 1755 First edition. Contemporary mottled calf. Gilt-decorated spines with brown morocco labels, gilt triple-ruled borders on covers, marbled edges and endpapers. Three volumes in one, twelvemo. Corners lightly worn, some joints just starting to crack. A very good, tight set. The first two volumes are an analysis of Francis Bacon's philosophy by Alexandre Deleyre (1726-1797), a Jesuit associate of Diderot's and Rousseau's, who became one of the editors of the Encyclopédie. Deleyre's study was highly regarded in its day, and was reprinted in 1778 and 1804. The third volume contains the French translation of David Mallet's (1705?-1765) Life of Francis Bacon, which was originally prefixed to the 1740 four-volume edition of Bacon's works.

[Morelly]
Par-Tout [i.e., Netherlands]: Chez Le Vrai Sage, 1755 First edition. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt spine with brown calf label, edges sprinkled brown. . Octavo. Title-page in black and red. Light wear to joints, old name inked out in the bottom margin of the title, causing a hole and some residual ink on the next leaf, not affecting text. Some minor foxing. A good, clean copy. Very little is known about Morelly—biographers and bibliographers don't even know his first name. He was born at Vitry-le-François, where he possibly taught. The present work is his most important. It is an early example of socialist thought and has much in common with Rousseau's early works, though instead of a social contract, Morelly favors a society without any contract at all. Like Rousseau, Morelly considers human nature essentially good, but corruptible by society. He argues for an egalitarian state with no private ownership. His other writings include a Utopian prose epic, Naufrage des iles flottantes ou la Basiliade (1753) and a work on education, Essai sur l'esprit humain, ou principes naturels de l'education. )1743). Karl Marx was favorably impressed by Morelly.

[French and Indian War]: Shirley, William:
Boston: Printed by John Draper, [1755].. Broadside, 15 x 12 1/2 inches. Docketed in manuscript on the verso. Old folds. Six small closed tears along one fold, but with no real loss of text; small closed tear in lower margin along a fold, with no loss. Old stain in lower right quadrant. Very good. Archivally matted and protected with a mylar sheet. A rare broadside proclamation from Massachusetts governor William Shirley calling on the citizens of the Bay Colony and New England to engage in a public fast on July 3, 1755, in support of British efforts at the outset of the French and Indian War. Shirley asserts that the British colonists must ask God to forgive them for their sins, which have provoked his anger and resulted in a state of warfare in the land. As a result of their sinfulness, Shirley notes, their "French neighbors" and the "Indian savages" have "unjustly and perfidiously invaded" their land. In 1755 the conflict later known as the French and Indian War was just beginning, and Shirley hopes that through repentance God would "mercifully prevent the calamity of a general war." It was not to be, and the French and Indian War did not end until 1763. NAIP and Ford locate only a single copy of this very rare American broadside, at the Massachusetts Historical Society. MASSACHUSETTS BROADSIDES 1019. EVANS 7477. NAIP w017296.

[Cartouche]
Köpenhamn, C. G. Glasings efterleverske, (1755). 8:o. 143,(1) s. Med grav. vinjett på titelbladet. Samtida hårt nött skinnryggbd med guldornerad rygg, ljusbrun titeletikett i skinn och upphöjda bind. Rödstänkta snitt. Ryggen med sprickor och lagningar och titeletiketten sannolikt senare. Titelbladet lätt solkigt och med små fläckar i marginalerna. Lagningar i övre hörnet på s. 77-80. liten reva i övre marginalen på s. 79. De avslutande fyra bladen med minimalt maskhål i övre marginalen. Med Hjalmar Hartmanns guldpressade vapenexlibris på främre pärmens insida. Vinjetten avbildar Cartouche med en pistol i sin högra hand. Den är signerad J. Haas. Louis Dominique Cartouche var ledare för ett tjuvband som satte skräck i Paris borgerskap på 1710-talet. Han infångades så småningom och den långdragna processen mot honom väckte stort uppseende, något som gav dramatikern Marc-Antoine Legrand tid nog att författa en komedi i tre akter med titeln "Cartouche, ou les voleurs". Stycket hade premiär den 28 november 1721, samma dag som förebilden rådbråkades på ett av Paris torg. Några få år senare gav Nicolas Racot de Grandval ut poemet "Cartouche, ou le vice puni" som i översättning kommit att spridda Cartouches namn långt utanför hemlandets gränser.

BROWNE, Patrick (1720-90)
London: [At lower center:] "Published according to Act of Parliament 1755.". Copper-engraved wall map with inset: "A General Plan of Port Royal" by J. Bayly, on two joined sheets, with original outline colour, in very good condition. 29 x 54 1/4 inches. An unrecorded state of the "The first large-scale map of Jamaica" This large, dramatic map of Jamaica, the first large scale map of the island, corresponds to the new importance and interest the island had for the British due to the vast fortunes compiled in sugar and slaves. This map, which includes topographical details and some roads, shows the sites of many sugar plantations, most of which were located in the southeast near the harbors. Kapp notes two states, the first with the imprint of John and Carrington Bowles (1755), the second with that of Carrington Bowles and Robert Wilkinson (1790). This example has no imprint, but still bears the date 1755. It is probably an intermediate state between those listed by Kapp. Aside from the lack of imprint, this example is identical to Kapp's first state. The map is the most detailed and exact for Jamaica published to its time. It locates "Gentleman's Seats," sugar works, churches, taverns, "crawls," "ginger, coffee, and indigo settlements," barracks, etc. The large inset shows both the portion of Port Royal destroyed in the earthquake of 1692, and that part which was still standing. Twenty-four sites in the town are identified by key. Patrick Browne was an Irish physician, who traveled extensively, settling in Jamaica in 1746. He had a keen interest in botany and history … [Click Below for Full Description]
