RISM A428 (3 copies, none in the U.S.). A Swedish composer, violinist and harpsichordist, "Agrell's works divide into two categories: the vocal music, occasional and commissioned, much appreciated in his day, but now lost; and his many instrumental works, most of which were published during Agrell's lifetime, sometimes on their own, sometimes in anthologies... Agrell's reputation as one of the leading proponents of the emerging symphony led Antonio Vivaldi to ask him to contribute to a concert of ‘modern musicÂ’ in Amsterdam in 1739." Grove online

        A MEMORIAL CONTAINING A SUMMARY VIEW OF FACTS, WITH THEIR AUTHORITIES. IN ANSWER TO THE OBSERVATIONS SENT BY THE ENGLISH MINISTRY TO THE COURTS OF EUROPE

      New York: Printed and Sold by Hugh Gaine, 1757.. iv,190pp. 20th-century half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Bookplate on front and rear pastedown. Titlepage silked, minor wear and soiling, a few minute losses, not affecting text. Minor foxing and toning to text. Very good. The Thomas W. Streeter copy. One of two 1757 American printings of Moreau's MEMOIRE..., originally published in French in 1756. The Hugh Gaine edition is actually one of three imprints that appeared in the American colonies in 1757, two in New York and one in Philadelphia. The two New York printings (the other was issued by Parker & Weyman) contain the same pagination, implying that the two share the same printing of the text, with different titlepages. Neither Evans nor anyone else has ascribed priority to any of these first American printings. All are very rare. The text contains the first American printing of George Washington's journal of his first, disastrous military expedition to confront the French on the Ohio in 1753-54. Upon their victory over Washington's troops at Fort Necessity, the French seized Washington's journal of the expedition, Braddock's instructions to Washington, and the former's letters to the British Ministry. These papers were sent to France without delay. They were printed and sent to every court in Europe, offering evidence to support the French claim that Washington was on a deliberately provocative mission. Also included are a number of papers relating to the mounting Anglo-French tension in North America in the decade following the peace settlement of 1745 which led to the confrontation in the Ohio country. The memoir also contains a survey of the alleged French rights to the region west of the Alleghenies. Washington is severely criticized for his conduct, especially in causing the death of the French commander, Jumonville. The work is an essential one for understanding the causes of the French and Indian War. Streeter quotes Lawrence Wroth, in his JCB Library Report of 1945-46, as calling this memoir "One of the most important documents in American colonial history." The Brinley copy of this printing brought $20, a goodly sum in 1878. SABIN 47512. HOWES M787, "b." EVANS 7896. NAIP w038531. WROTH AMERICAN BOOKSHELF, pp.22, 40 (refs). BRINLEY SALE 242 ("rare").

        Atlas Universel

      les Auteurs & Boudet, 1757, Cuir, Book Condition: Condition Parfaite / PERFECTSize: Folio (21 x 15 1/2 inches), Engraved title, 108 engraved maps (3 folding 105 double-page), all hand-coloured in outline and mounted on guards, each map with original stencilled title on the verso, uncut. (Occasional browning and creasing, a few small stains). Expertly bound to style in 18th-century diced Russia, covers with gilt borders, spine elaborately gilt in eight compartments, black morocco lettering piece in the second. Provenance: John Wickins (inscription dated 1761 on front pastedown).///A fine uncut copy of the Robert de Vaugondy's great atlas. /// Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy were descendents of Nicolas Sanson, and their atlas is clearly a continuation of Sanson's great work, "Cartes G?n?rales de Toutes les Parties de Monde" published in 1654 and later enhanced and enlarged by Hubert Jaillot. Of the 108 maps, 12 are of the ancient world and 96 reflect modern geography. The Robert de Vaugondys, following Sanson's example, include maps of the postal routes, roads and canal systems of the European countries but herein they are significantly more accurate. Special attention has been paid to the Far East and to North America where the French explorers made such important strides during the eighteenth century. The maps of the East Indies, China, Japan; the maps of Africa and Egypt; and the maps of North America, Canada, Virginia & Maryland, Colonies Angloises are especially interesting in this atlas because they represent the latest exploration. In particular, California and Australia are represented in truer form. /// Nordenskivld 245; NMM 266; Phillips 619; Sabin 71863 //HEAVY BOOK. SPLENDID! Photo available upon request, Livre

De Stadhouderlijke Binderij in Den Haag was de grootste en belangrijkste binderij die er was in Nederland in de 18e eeuw. De binderij accepteerde elk soort werk en maakte de mooiste ontwerpen die in haar tijd bekend waren in het hele land. De binderij bezat een enorme hoeveelheid gereedschap en maakte gebruik van de traditionele methoden van binden. De binderij had contact met uitgevers in en buiten Den Haag en werkte voor vele verzamelaars, waaronder belangrijke en invloedrijke mensen. Naast prijsbanden en banden voor verzamelaars, maakte de binderij ook banden die gezien kunnen worden als luxe banden voor uitgevers en boekverkopers. De stempels die gebruikt zijn voor deze banden zijn zeer divers, met in het midden van de platten een centraal ornament met aan de onder- en bovenkant een stempel met 3 eikels, daaromheen een dubbele decoratieve/geometrische rand, waarvan elke hoek aan de binnen- en buitenkant met de drie eikels gestempeld, dit alles in een brede decoratieve rand die bijna de gestempelde zijkant van de platten raakt. Ook de ruggen van de banden zijn tussen en op de ribben met goud bestempeld met een decoratief bloemenmotief, waarbij een vak is opengelaten voor de titel. Schutbladen van chintz met een bloemen patroon met appels en peren in de kleuren groen, rood en paars.

(With an engraved frontispiece by S. Fokke, after A. Schouwman and a folding portrait of Willem Muilman after H.J. Serin. The First Stadholder Bindery in The Hague was the largest and most important binding workshop in existence in The Netherlands in the eighteenth century. It accepted every kind of work and made the most beautiful designs known in its time in the whole country. It owned an enormous quantity of tools, and kept traditional methods. The bindery maintained contacts with publishers in and beyond The Hague and worked for many collectors, some of them important and influential. Apart from presentation bindings and bindings for collectors it also made bindings which can be considered luxury publishers' or booksellers' bindings. The gilding used on both bindings is very diverse, in the middle of the covers a central ornament with at the top and bottom a triple acorn, surrounded by a double ornamental/geometrical border, from which each inner and outer corner with a triple acorn, altogether within a broad ornamental border which is almost touching the gilt boardedges. The spines are decorated with floral gilding. Bound with rich chintz endpapers with a floral pattern with apples and pears in green, red and purple. All edges gilt-edged and near the spine and at the corners gauffred with a design of leaves.) Storm van Leeuwen, J. (2006). Dutch Decorated Bookbinding in the Eighteenth Century.

        Recens Edita totius Novi Belgii.

      Augsburg 1757 - Original wash color; fine condition. A superb example of a richly engraved map of the Northeast, which includes a fascinating view of New York City with a rarely seen depiction of the original wall that would become Wall Street. Called the Restitutio View for its dramatic depiction of the restitution of Dutch power in the New York City in 1673, it shows Dutch soldiers marching south along the city¿s east side on their way to seizing the fort. Dutch rule in New York lasted only a single year before the English took final control in 1674. (See Manhattan in Maps, reference below, for an account of this surprising event in New York history.) The wall that stood where Wall Street now runs was in fact a wooden stockade, built in 1653, when word reached New Amsterdam of a planned though later aborted, English attack of the city. Atop the view, a monarch, possibly George II, is being presented with the bounty of America. Published the T. C. Lotter, this was the final edition of the very long-lived Jansson-Visscher series of maps. The Jansson map, which served as the template of the general map in the series, was one of the most durable prototypes in the mapping of America. cf. Augustyn/ Cohen, Manhattan in Maps, pp. 46-7; Tooley, America, p. 291, #26a, fourth state.

        Abhandlungen zur Naturgeschichte der Thiere und Pflanzen; welche ehemals der königl.

      franz. Akad. der Wissenschaften vorgetragen worden; ... Aus dem Französischen übersetzet. Leipzig, Arkstee und Merkus, 1757-1758. 3 volumes. 4to. pp. xxvi, (40), 1100, with 1 engraved frontispiece, 3 printer's-marks and 137 (mostly folded) engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, richly floral gilt spines with 6 raised bands and gilt-lettered labels. Nissen 3128; cf. Pritzel 2341. Dealing mainly with the natural history of animals, only the second half of the third volume treats plants. The animal dissections were done by the famous French anatomist and physician Claude Perrault, who was the leader of the famous French anatomists, of which Cole (p. 395) said: "The Parisians laid the foundation of our knowledge of comparative anatomy". Perrault (1613-1688; working in the fields of zoology, medicine, and plant- & animal-physiology) was "an original and influential figure. Few of his predecessors described so many species in such detail, or with such clarity and precision ..." (D.S.B. X, pp. 519-521). The beautifully engraved frontispiece shows Louis XIV and his Chancellor Colbert visiting the French Academy of Sciences in 1671. Many of the very attractive plates show animals in front of a beautiful and detailed landscape with villages, rivers, etc. and were printed on strong paper. Pages 81 to 94 concern camels and describe the anatomy of 2 camels 'Anatomische Beschreibung zweier Kameele', the text is accompanied by three plates. The first plate is a dromedary and the second a camel, both in front of a lovely landscape, the third plate shows anatomical details of the animals. A good and clean copy.

      . Halle/ Magdeburg, Johann Jacob Curt 1757, 8°, 4 Bl., 1082 pp., mit gestochener titelvignette, Klalbsledereinband der Zeit mit ausgiebiger Rückenvergoldung; feines Exemplar.. Johann Simonis (1698-1768) war Professor der Kirchengeschichte und der christlichen Altertümer in Halle. Seine hauptsächlichen Verdienste erwarb er sich auf dem Gebiete der alttestamentlichen Philologie, auf die er zuerst durch Michaelis aufmerksam wurde. Sein 'Lexicon', hier in erster Ausgabe, erlebte mehrere Auflagen. Er war bestrebt, in dem vorliegenden sprachlichen Material des Alten Testaments eine genaue Scheidung der abgeleiteten Bildungen von den Wurzeln durchzuführen u. die letzteren mit Hilfe der Dialekte, insbes. des Arabischen festzustellen. Es bleibt sein Verdienst, die wirklich vorkommenden Worte und Formen des Alten Testaments genau und vollständig zusammengestellt und eine bessere Bedeutungsentwicklung als seine Vorgänger gegeben zu haben.

        A Prospect on the River Manyfold, at Wetton-Mill

      Published by Smith, London 1757 - A stunning view of the River Manyfold, by Smith of Derby, one of the most celebrated English landscape painters. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a trend developed amongst English artists and printmakers, which sought to visually record the natural beauties of England and Wales. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, English printmakers began to publish topographical prints of the important sights in the British Isles. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside they were meant to encourage public recognition of the beauty and history of England. They 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. One of the earliest and most influential landscape artists to begin this trend was Thomas Smith who came to be known as "Smith of Derby". Smith traveled the north of England painting famous houses and beautiful views. He was one of the first artists to depict wild landscape scenes, which became immensely fashionable with the development of the "picturesque landscape" towards the end of the century. Smith's paintings not only captured the English countryside at the onset of the Industrial Revolution, but also recorded the activities of visiting tourists and local inhabitants. These works capture a period in England's history, which was forever changed by the wheels of progress. Before the mills and the factories came to dominate the landscape of northern England Smith depicted its wild beauty and breathtaking scenery. This lovely print comes from a suite of eight views of Derbyshire and Staffordshire, produced by Smith around 1743. The views were then engraved and offered for sale by subscription, along with letterpress explanations of the sites. This important suite represent the first appearance of precipes and cascades in English landscapes, and mark a pivotal point in the concept of the countryside as sublime. The set was republished twice, first by Smith in 1757 and later by Boydell in 1769. This print is from Smith's second edition. Wetton Mill in the distance was a river run mill for grinding corn. River Manyfold (now Manifold) appears well-named as it forms a large loop before the viewer. Wetton is in Staffordshire. Clayton The English Print 1688-1802 page 155-157, 299. Engraving with beautiful hand-colour. Printed on watermarked laid paper. In good condition with the exception of some staining in the margins. Two creases along bottom corners. Label on verso of sheet. Image size: 15 x 20 7/8 inches.
