        Friendship album of Johann Hotze, comprising entries by Swiss and German scholars, including Daniel Bernoulli, Johann Jacob Breitinger, and Johann Ernst Hebenstreit.

      Tübingen, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Coburg, Erfurt, Erlangen, Halle, Jena, Basel, Zurich, Strasbourg, 1753-1757. - Oblong 8vo. Title page and 97 ff. (46 of which are inscribed). Red morocco, spine and covers lavishly gilt. The album contains entries by many outstanding scholars of the time, including not only Bernoulli, Breitinger and Hebenstreit, but also Christian Augustus Crusius (Protestant theologian and philosopher, 1715-75), Johannes Gesner (physician and mathematician, 1709-90), Christian Gottlieb Ludwig (physician and botanist, 1709-73), Casimir Christoph Schmidel (naturalist, 1718-92), Heinrich Friedrich Delius (physician, 1720-91), Philipp Friedrich Gmelin (botanist, 1721-68), Christian Jacob Trew (botanist, 1719-1800), Abraham Gotthelf Kästner (mathematician and teacher of Gauss, 1719-1800), Philipp Adolph Böhmer (physician, anatomist and personal physician to King Frederick William II of Prussia, 1711-89), and Andreas Elias Büchner (head of the Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, 1701-69). The album's owner, Johannes Hotze (1734-1801), was a Swiss physician of great international renown and the cousin of the pedagogue Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi. Born into a well-known family of surgeons, Hotze attended the Collegium Carolinum in Zurich and then studied at Strasbourg, Tübingen and Leipzig, from where date numerous entries. Goethe, who visited him twice, described him as a "most intelligent and benevolent man" ("Dichtung und Wahrheit" IV, 18). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Origineel Leer met ribben, rijkelijk met goud bestempeld en met goud op snede, gebonden door de Tweede Stadhouderlijke Binderij in Den Haag, 8° (De onder- en bovenkant van de rug zijn iets sleets, lichte leesvouw in de rug. Het werk is gebonden met gedecoreerde schutbladen. Fraai exemplaar van de zeldzame eerste uitgave van dit historische en geografische leerboek door Louis François Krayenhoff, ca. 1724-na 1773. In het werk wordt eerst het gebruik van de globe uitgelegd en vervolgens wordt een beschrijving van de geschiedenis en gebruiken van verschillende landen gegeven. In het Nieuw Nederlands Biografisch Woordenboek wordt het werk aangeduid als: 'een hoogst merkwaardig boek, scherp in zijn aanvallen op de roomsch katholieke kerk, maar vooral merkwaardig om de karakterschetsen van de verschillende volken'. Het geheel is ingebonden door de Tweede Stadhouderlijke Binderij in een zeer fraaie stempelband. De Tweede Stadhouderlijke Binderij was actief geduurende de jaren 1752-1782 in de stad Den Haag. De binderij heeft zijn naam te danken aan het feit dat zij veel banden inbonden voor de stadhouderlijke familie, voor dit doeleinde bezaten zij enkele stempels die exclusief hier voor werden gebruikt, waaronder de sinaasappelbomen op deze set. Kenmerkend voor de band is het rijkelijk met goud bestempelde patroon, de stempels zijn te herleiden naar de binderij met behulp van het standaard werk van Storm van Leeuwen.)

        Lettere di giustificazione scritte a Milord Charlemont e a' di lui agenti di Roma dal signor Piranesi, socio della Real Società degli Antiquari di Londra intorno la dedica della sua opera Delle antichità rom. fatta allo stesso signor ed ultimamente soppressa

      Rome: Giambattista Piranesi, 1757 Small folio (251x174 mm). Etched dedication leaf [Wilton-Ely 739, Ficacci 324] (an elaborate wreath with the inner space left blank for the dedication of the copy, here without recipient's name), etched title-page [W.-E. 738, F. 323, state two of two early states], XXVIII pp. and VIII full-page etched plates (one double-page and folding) [W.-E. 745-752, F. 327-331], the first four being reproductions on a smaller scale of the frontispieces to the four volumes of the Antichità Romane, the last four being inscriptions. With also 4 etched head-pieces [W.-E. 740-743, F. 324-326] above the preface and each of the three letters, and one tail-piece [W.-E. 744, F. 326] at end of the third letter, by and after Piranesi. The etchings are printed on a thicker paper than the text. Contemporary boards, marbles edges. A few small stains in the margin of the dedication leaf and the title-page, otherwise a nice copy.RARE FIRST EDITION of this Piranesi's polemical work against his patron Lord Charlemont, in which Piranesi expresses his own view on the relationship between artist and patron. "This edition is extremely rare... The plates indicated as table I to IV were subsequently reused in the post 1761 edition of the Opere varie" (Ficacci, p. 320).The Irish nobleman and politician James Caulfield, first Earl of Charlemont (1728-1799), was a patron of the arts, chairman of the committee of the Dilettanti Club and a friend of Burke, Johnson, Reynolds, Goldsmith and Hogarth. Educated privately, he went on the Grand Tour at the age of eighteen in 1746, travelling to Turin, Rome, the Greek Islands, Constantinople, the Levant, and Egypt, before returning to Ireland in 1754.Piranesi's Camera sepolcrali degli antichi romani le quali esistono dentro e fuori di Roma (ca 1750) was published as a prospectus to find a patron. Charlemont responded and Piranesi engraved a large number of additional plates to the work, finally publishing in 1756 what had become a four-volume set under the title Le Antichità romane. Charlemont had promised to subvention the significant financial outlay involved in the publication but, after his return to Ireland and despite repeated requests from Piranesi, he provided only a sum which Piranesi dismissed as offensively small. As a response, Piranesi removed then the dedications to Charlemont present in the first states of the title-pages to the work and the following year published the Lettere di giustificazione, which includes two of the artist's letters addressed to Charlemont together with a third letter to Father Peter Grant, who had attempted to intervene in the dispute and mediate between the two parties.The textual vindication of Piranesi's position is complemented by the series of eight plates which demonstrate the disassociation of Charlemont's patronage from the work in a methodical manner; they illustrate the original title-pages with their dedications to Charlemont, two versions of Charlemont's text for the dedication leaf, the first title with the dedicatory text erased, and, finally, the second state of the title-page with the revised dedication.As Wilton-Ely states, "the intellectual and social changes of the late 18th century affected the traditional relationship between patron and artist, and the Lettere are symptomatic of issues greater than a mere personal quarrel. Themes which transcend the tedious details of the affair include the nobility of artistic reputation and the imperishable nature of art -- the latter neatly symbolized by the serpent of Eternity in the [dedication leaf]. For Piranesi, deeply involved in the study of Roman civilization, the creative act of recording the achievement for posterity conferred on him a dignity worthy of his patron's respect" (p. 802).The title-page of the Lettere exists in two early states: with a quotation from Ennius and with a quotation from Pliny (as here). Wilton-Ely states that the first state was for copies "circulated to influential people of rank while the second one was intended for Piranesi's artist friends and collaborators, especially among the British colony at Rome" (p. 803). In a copy of the Lettere di giustificazione recently sold at auction, on the verso of plate 6, can be found a manuscript list of influential people, to whom the book was probably distributed. Among them, Andrea Rossi, Venetian etcher and engraver; Francisco Preciado de la Vega, Spanish-born painter and bookseller; Filippo Della Valle, Roman sculptor; Bartolomeo Cavaceppi, Roman sculptor and dealer in antiques; Domenico Gregorini, Roman architect; Anton Raphael Mengs, German painter active in Rome; John Russell, English painter; Sir Horace Mann; David Murray, second Earl of Mansfield; Sir William Hamilton, archaeologist and collector; Sir Brook William Bridges, a member of Sir Horace Mann's circle; and many others.Cicognara, 3830; Hind, p. 84 ("the volume was suppressed soon after publication, which accounts for its extreme rarity"); J.

        Opera. Ex antiquis monimentis illustrata. Cura, studio & sumtibus Henrici Justice, Armigeri, Rufforthii Toparchae.

      [Henry Justice], [The Hague] 1757 - FIRST EDITION, 5 vols., 8vo, pp. [xvi], 14, 138 + frontispiece and 9 plates; [x], 99, [1], 100-129 + frontispiece and 6 plates (one a folding map); [ii], 142 + frontispiece and 5 plates; [ii], 154 + frontispiece and 5 plates; [ii], 3, [1], 2, [1], 82, [1], 83-87, [1]. Numerous head- and tail-pieces within the pagination. Largely untrimmed in somewhat later half red roan, red paper boards, spines divided by double gilt rules, gilt-lettered direct in second and fourth compartments. A number of the tissue-guards (in place for both plates and head- and tail-pieces) rather foxed and this also affecting the adjacent leaves, some scattered spotting elsewhere. A little rubbed, corners a touch worn, several hinges neatly relined and a few flyleaves renewed (vol. 3 rear flyleaf absent). The first Justice edition of Virgil, entirely engraved throughout in imitation of Pine's Horace and published at the editor's great expense. Henry Justice (c.1696-1763), a barrister from York and compulsive book collector, was sentenced to transportation to America in 1736 for stealing books from Trinity College Library; his wife Elizabeth published a thinly disguised novel of their marriage and its breakdown over his refusal to spend money on the household instead of books (Amelia, 1751). Justice reappears in the historical record two decades after his trial, in the Netherlands, working on this edition of Virgil. The only place and date in it (The Hague, 1765) are in the dedication to Catherine the Great, which follows the title-page in vol. 5. In fact publication began in 1757 and was ongoing in 1763, when Justice died, with three volumes finished by that time; the fourth was ready shortly afterward and the fifth by 1765, both under the care of Henry's son William. The plates were reimpressed some time later on one side of the sheets only, by J.L. de Boubers in Brussels, with his name added at the foot of the title-page. There is no date in this edition either, but de Boubers began as a type-founder in the late 1760s and operated until his death in 1804, with his widow carrying on the business for another 17 years. The reimpression made the book a more luxurious production, and the BL catalogue suggests that it was limited to 80 copies only, but this first is now rather scarcer, especially on the market. COPAC locates copies of the first in only Manchester, BL, Oxford, and Cambridge - with an indeterminate 'large paper issue' in Glasgow - as compared to 8 copies of the reissue in 7 locations. The status of the large-paper issue is hard to pin down: Brunet mentions that it is rare in France because most of the copies were bought up by the dedicatee, Catherine the Great, to use as gifts. The Trinity College Cambridge catalogue entry describes the large paper issue as having horizontal chain lines, in contrast with the vertical ones in that copy. However, this example appears to be printed on wove paper, with no detectable chain lines at all, so perhaps the large-paper issue was de Bouber's work. Dibdin II 558. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ITER PALAESTINUM ELLER RESA TIL HELIGA LANDET... UTGIFVEN AF CARL LINNAEUS

      Stockholm: n.p.. Very Good. 1757. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good, in contemporary quarter sheep. Linnaeus sponsored Hasselquist's travels in the Holy Land, and published this book after the author's death. Soulsby 3577. In 1747, Frederic Hasselquist entered the study of his teacher Carolus Linnaeus to announce his decision to go to the Holy Land and explore its natural history. This decision was prompted by a lecture in which Linnaeus complained that the natural history of the Holy Land was almost as little know as that of the remote provinces of India. Hasselquist finally embarked on his journey in 1749; visiting parts of Asia Minor, Egypt, Cyprus and Palestine, making large natural history collections. Unfortunately, his health succumbed to the fatigues of travel, and he died near Smyrna on his way home. His collections did reach Stockholm, and five years after his death his notes were published by Linnaeus under the title Iter Palæstinum, Eller Resa til Heliga Landet, Förrättad Ifrån år 1749 til 1752, which was translated into French and German in 1762 and into English in 1766 (as Voyages and Travels in the Levant, in the Years 1749, 50, 51, 52).; .

        Vedute delle ville, e d'altri luoghi della Toscana

      Florence: Giuseppe Bouchard, 1757. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Broadsheets (550 x 376 mm). Etched title and 50 etched plates of the villas of Tuscany after Zocchi by Giuseppe Benedetti (7), Marco Antonio Corsi (4), Philote-François Duflos (2), Giuseppe Filosi (4), Vincenzo Franceschini (1), Giuliano Giampiccoli (1), Michele Marieschi (2), Niccolo Mogalli (3), Pietro Monaco (7), Filippo Morghen (9), Johann Sebastian Müller (1), Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1), Joseph Wagner (6), and Giuseppe Zocchi (2). Contemporary marbled calf gilt. Wear to joints. Provenance: purchased from Ars Libri, 1985. A FINE COPY of the third (second Bouchard) edition, following the first of 1744 and the second (the first published by Bouchard) of 1754. Little is known of Zocchi's life. Born near Florence, he studied in Venice and Bologna, and became the official designer of the Pietre Dura factory from 1754 to 1750. The present work, and his Scelta (see previous item) were the product of his commission by the Marchese Andrea Gerini to record the great landmarks in Florence and its environs. These drawings are now in the Pierpont Morgan Library. Tuscan villas are seen within gardens and surrounding bucolic landscapes, with punctuations of humorous human interactions. Piranesi etched one plate for the work: "La real villa dell'Ambrogiana" (Focillon 19; Wilton-Ely 102). Berlin Kat. 2701; Mason p. 190.

      [The Hague]., 1757-1765. First edition thus. Second issue, dedicated to the Holy Roman Emperor Francis I. Octavo. Five volumes bound into one: pp [xvi], 14, 138; [x], 129; [ii], 142; [ii], 154; [ii], 85. Five engraved title-pages, 28 copper engraved plates by Marcus Pitteri, engraved folding map. The entire text is engraved in copper. Period binding of full vellum with gilt rules, gilt devices to spine, embossed device to each cover, morocco title label,marbled edges and endpapers. The fifth volume, which serves as an Index to the previous volumes was edited and published by the author's son William and shows a distinct deterioration in the quality of the printing. It seems the book was printed in Italy, to which country the editor retired having been prosecuted by the University of Cambridge for stealing books. His original sentence of transportation was reduced to exile.

      Covens and Mortier, Amsterdam 1757 - Engraved with early outline colour. Printed on laid paper. In perfect condition. Image size: 18 1/8 x 23 1/8 inches. A handsome 18th century topographical map of Martinique This highly detailed map of Martinique delineates the hilly terrain, forests, roads, houses, and even the sugar plantations. The island was to the French what Barbados and Jamaica were to the English: immensely profitable sites for sugar production. Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726) was the son of a cartographer and a pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini, who, among other important contributions, aligned the study of astronomy to the study of geography. Under Cassini's direction, observations were made from locations all over the world that enabled longitudinal calculations to be made with much greater accuracy. De l'Isle carried on this exacting work with remarkable dedication and integrity, constantly revising and improving his maps. While precision was his primary goal, his maps are invariably elegant and attractive. Jean (Johannes) Covens and Corneille (Cornelius) Mortier were brothers-in-law, who carried on the book publishing business established by Pierre Mortier in Amsterdam in 1685. Pierre Mortier's company owed much of its success to his access to French publishers, whose publications he re-issued in handsome editions.The elder Mortier died in 1711; his wife continued the firm until she died in 1719. In 1721, Covens and Mortier formed a partnership, Covens having married Agatha Mortier in the same year. They continued the business by publishing enlarged editions of Sanson, Jaillot, and De L'Isle, as well as some of the later Dutch cartographical masters such as De Wit and Allard, and of course Pierre Mortier.

        The History of the Knights Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem,

      Edinburgh: Printed by R. Fleming, for A. Kincaid and A. Donaldson, Yair and Fleming, and W. Gray,, 1757 . styled afterwards, the Knights of Rhodes, and at present, the Knights of Malta. 5 volumes, duodecimo in sixes (165 x 94 mm). Contemporary calf, dark tawny-coloured labels. Engraved armorial bookplates (by the fashionable Pugh Brothers, Lincoln's Inn) of Marquess of Headfort, most likely Thomas Taylor, 3rd marquess (1822-1894, succeeded to title 1870). Head of spine chipped on volume I, extremities chipped on volume V, old dark stains on back cover of volume I, touch of worming at foot of front joint on volume V (which has not progressed internally). An excellent set, clean, crisp and sound. First small format edition in English, following the two-volume folio of 1728 and originally published in French in 1726. Commissioned by the Order themselves, Vertot's history remained the standard work for two centuries. The Abbé's "talent as an historian was more of a literary than of a critical character" (Catholic Encyclopaedia), which perhaps was fitting for the telling of a tale of such legendary scope and scale. The Order was founded in Jerusalem after the reconquest in 1099; forced from the Holy Land after the fall of Acre in 1291, they settled briefly on Cyprus before being gifted lands on Rhodes. They were expelled from there by Suleiman the Magnificent after a six month siege in 1522, and after a short sojourn on Sicily, the Order was granted the islands of Malta and Gozo by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. In 1565 the Order organized the heroic resistance to the Siege of Malta, the island losing over a third of its population while withstanding a bombardment of nearly 150,000 cannon shots. Even if the Siege did little to alter the balance of power in the Mediterranean, it was the first true defeat of the Ottoman Empire in a century and lifted European morale immeasurably, and such was its resonance that two hundred years later Voltaire could remark; "Rien n'est plus connu que le siège de Malte" ["Nothing is better known than the Siege of Malta"]. The text also includes Vertot's 'Discourse upon the Alcoran', originally given before L'Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres in 1724, and his 'Dissertation on Zizim', a historiographical study of Cem Sultan's time on Rhodes. A very appealing set in a contemporary trade binding of plain calf.
