        View of the ruins of the Propyllia , Gate of the Acropolis, Athens. "Vue des ruines des Propylées, où de la Porte de la Citadelle d' Athenes

      Greece: Paris chez H.L. Guerin & L.F. Delatour, J.L. Nyon/ Jean Neaulme 1758. Copper engraved view ruins of the Propyllia ,Athens from Le Roy's "Les Ruines des Plus Beaux Monuments de la Grece ." Black and white, verso blank. The view shows the columns of the Propyllia at the ntrance to the Acropolis. Bright dark impression. Julien David Le Roy (1724-1803) was a French architect and archaeologist. "Les Ruines des Plus Beaux Monuments de la Grece," issued in 1758, first revealed to European eyes the wonders of Greek classical architecture. Overnight, Greece became the rage, much to the chagrin of Giovanni Battista Piranesi and other defenders of the genius of Rome. Le Roy was to become engaged in a strong rivalry with Society of Dillitanti members James Stuart and Nicholas Revett, particularly to produce the first professional description of the Acropolis since that of by Antoine Desgodetz published in 1682. A winner of the Prix de Rome in 1750, Julien-David Le Roy was a historian and pensionnaire at the French Academy in Rome, where he had the opportunity to study its architecture firsthand. It was there that he learned of Stuart and Revett's proposed book and their trip to Greece in 1751-1753. Receiving permission from the Ottoman Turks in Constantinople, he himself hurried to Athens early in 1755, where for three hectic months he surveyed and drew the principal classical monuments there, including those on the Acropolis. Stuart and Revett had been researching Athens since 1748 but Le Roy had an advantage in accessing the ruins due to good relations between France and the Ottoman Empire. Le Roy's studies,were supported by the Comte de Caylus and his art circle. The finest engravers and architects were recruited to produce the illustrations' Published in advance of Stuart's and Revett's "Antiquities of Athens", which appeared in 1762, Le Roy's work introduced the architecture of classical Athens to Western Europe. Le Roy's work provoked strident criticism from Stuart' in the preface to "Antiquities of Athens", Stuart declared that he, at least, was determined "to avoid Haste, and System, those most dangerous enemies to accuracy and fidelity, for we had frequently, with great regret, observed their bad effects in many, otherwise excellent, Works of this kind." Railing against Le Roy, every misunderstanding and inaccuracy were itemized. There were insinuations of plagiarism and charges that descriptions had been taken from others and not made directly, as well as failures to recognize monuments for what they were (e.g., the gateway to the Roman Agora and Hadrian's Library). On his own admission Le Roy was less concerned with precise measuring and recording than he was with conveying the soul of the antiquities, showing them the context of their surroundings With the publication of "Les Ruines", Le Roy was elected a member of the Royal Academy of Architects. Stuart's criticisms were sufficiently pointed that Le Roy felt obliged to publish a response ("Observations sur les édifices des anciens peuples") and, in 1770, a second edition of his work?"this time with footnotes, quotations in Greek and Latin, and references. There also was a riposte to Stuart, who, he felt, saw the only merit of publishing a book on Greek monuments as providing their exact measurements?"and doing so too often. "The ruins of antiquity may be looked at in widely differing ways. In publishing them, one may undertake no more than a slavish record of their dimensions; and the most scrupulous accuracy in doing so is, in Mr. Stuart's opinion, almost the only merit that a book of this kind can possess. My journey, I confess, was undertaken with very different ends in view; I would never have traveled to Greece simply to observe the relations of the buildings and their parts with the subdivisions of our foot. Such a claim to fame I gladly resign to anyone who desires it and aspires to nothing higher....As for the vast quantity of plates with which works of the present kind are sometimes laden, these often convey nothing to the public beyond the industry or the want of taste of those who have measured the monuments" (Preface, Vol. I). In the much-expanded edition of 1770,Le Roy wrote two highly provocative theoretical essays. In one,he set forth a compelling linear history of the conceptual forms of architecture that began in Egypt, moved to Greece, then Rome, and finally modern Europe. In the other, seeking to express the experience of architectural form and its effects, Le Roy gave new voice to feeling. Blackmer/ Navari :1009; Atabey 709;Cohen de-Ricci 627.

Bis ca. 1560 in zahlreichen politischen Ämtern tätig. "Als Gelehrter ohne Universitätsstudium blieb Tschudi zeitlebens Autodidakt. [..] Von Tschudis Werken wurde zu Lebzeiten nur die landeskundlich-historische 'Alpisch Rhetia' gedruckt [Basel 1538] [..]. [..] Daneben war Tschudi der wichtigste Beiträger zur 1547-48 publizierten Schweizerchronik von Johannes Stumpf. Seine eigene Schweizerchronik blieb unvollendet [..]; sie wurde erst 1734-36 unter dem Titel 'Chronicon Helveticum' von Johann Rudolf Iselin publiziert, der zugehörige, topografisch aufgebaute Teil zum Zeitabschnitt vor 1000 erst 1758 unter dem Titel 'Gallia Comata'." (Chr. Sieber, in: HLS). - "Während das 'Chronicon Helveticum' annalistisch angelegt ist [..], bietet die zwischen 1564 und 1572 entstandene 'Gallia comata', das zweite Hauptwerk Tschudis, die Vorgeschichte der Eidgenossenschaft in vorrömischer, römischer und frühmittelalterlicher Zeit als historisch-topographische Sammlung. Für den schweizerischen Raum zog der Verfasser fast sämtliche Textstellen aus antiken und frühmittelalterlichen Autoren heran, zitierte römische Inschriften und mittelalterliche Urkunden. Die Helvetier, dies ist der Grundgedanke, pflegten uralte Rechte und Freiheiten, die, von den eroberungssüchtigen Römern teilweise ausgelöscht, von den Innerschweizern im Befreiungsgeschehen weitgehend wiederhergestellt worden sind. Den topographischen Begriff 'Gallia comata' erklärt Tschudi von der Haartracht der Bevölkerung her [.. ] ('Gallia comata' S. 7)." (P. Ochsenbein u. K. Schmucki, Bibliophiles Sammeln und Historisches Forschen. Der Schweizer Polyhistor Aegidius Tschudi 1505-1572. St. Gallen 1991, p. 34). - "Später, in seinen letzten Lebensjahren, schrieb [Tschudi] die 'Gallia comata', ein topographisches Werk, welches auch Helvetien und Rätien umfassen sollte. Es enthält sechs Abschnitte: Helvetien, Rätien, die Rauraker, Sequaner, Germanien und Vindelikien. Aber der Verfasser wollte es nicht als vollendet anerkennen. Erst zweihundert Jahre später wurde es [..] veröffentlicht [..]. Die Gallia comata ist für die Kenntniss dieser Periode von untergeordnetem Werth. Sprachlich und in antiquarischer Beziehung lässt sie viel vermissen [..]. Dagegen finden sich darin wichtige Angaben über mittelalterliche und historiographische Dinge, z.B. über schweizerische Bischöfe, die noch heute brauchbar sind. [..] [Die] sogenannte Gallia Comata [.. wurde] nach dem Originalmanuscript, aber mit Einschiebseln aus anderen Tschudi'schen Manuscripten und in modernisirter Sprache, veröffentlicht." (G. v. Wyss, Geschichte der Historiographie in der Schweiz, 1895, p. 12 u.199). - "Tschudi brachte der nationalen Vergangenheit ein ungeheures Verlangen und Annäherungsvermögen entgegen. [..] Er gibt Quellen in der Gallia comata an [..]. [..] Als Sammler und Forscher ist er bahnbrechend, er hat den gewaltigsten Unterbau für die Schweizergeschichte geschaffen, ohne über Hilfswerke zu verfügen. Manche, die ihn nachmals kritisierten, lebten doch von seinem Fleiss. [..] Die Gallia comata ist überhaupt bloss eine Materialsammlung, die er rasch chronologisch geordnet hat. [..] Tschudi hat die Geschichtsschreibung der Schweiz auf den Weg der quellenmässigen Forschung gewiesen; das ist eine der wichtigsten, für die Wissenschaft folgenreichsten Seiten seiner Gelehrtentätigkeit." (Feller/Bonjour 1, 2. Aufl. 1979, p. 265, 268, 270 u. 273; pp. 273-276 mit Diskussion der Rezeption und wertvollen bibliographischen Hinweisen).

        The Case of the Dutch Ships, Considered

      London: for R. and J. Dodsley; and Sold by M. Cooper,, 1758. Octavo (202 × 132 mm). Recent sprinkled half calf on marbled boards, red morocco label to spine. Lightly browned, else very good. First edition. Published when Marriott had recently graduated in Law and entered the College of Advocates, and at the height of the Seven Years' War, this pamphlet contends that "... that the Dutch had forfeited claims to neutrality by trading with French colonies and by allowing Dutch territory to be used by France" (James Ford Bell Catalogue, M178). Marriott's arguments attracted a good deal of notice, and two further editions were called for within a year; a fourth edition was published in 1778. Marriott "was an indefatigable, insatiable, and indiscriminate suitor for patronage" (ODNB), rising eventually to become a Judge in Admiralty. Despite Roscoe's harsh judgement that he did "not leave a single judgement of historical value" (Studies in the History of the Admiralty and Prize Courts), his compilation of the forms and practice of the Admiralty Court, Formulare Instrumentarum published in 1802, was to be a major influence on American admiralty law.

Bookplate.Johan Brelin (1734-82) departed for China in january 1755 with the Swedish East India Company's ship Sophia Albertina under the command of Captain Carl Gustav Lehman. The return trip from China became long and circumstantial. Brelin got lost, broke his ankle and was left astern on the Island of Ascension in the Indian Ocean. He feared "a death which with good reason can be called the hardest", but was saved in the last minute by a French ship. With a broken mast they sailed to Brazil and then to Portugal, where Brelin for a short while was suspected to be a spy. Penniless he spent a winter in Amsterdam before returning to Sweden in April 1757. In Stockholm Brelin found that he "already had been wept for as deceased" and that his family still wore mourning for his sake. His adventurous account is still characterized by a cheerful temperament and an open disposition. A facsimile edition was published in 1973. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Essai sur l'Amelioration des Terres

      Paris: chez Durand, , 1758. Duodecimo (161 x 92 mm). Contemporary French red crushed morocco, three-line gilt border on sides, decorative gilt spine, all edges gilt, gilt patterned endpapers. Wood-engraved title decoration, engraved headpiece to Dedication, 3 folding engraved plates of fields. A beautiful copy. First edition, scarce, of a highly influential book: "Its influence was to be very great and Pattullo was to be quoted throughout the rest of the century as one of the famous agriculturists of his time, and the founder of a definite agricultural system (...) the Essai is a handbook of English farming for the use of the French" (Andre J. Bourde, The Influence of England on the French Agronomes 1750-1789, Cambridge 1953, p. 78). It is also one of the earliest works to publicise the views of the French Enlightenment economist Francois Quesnay (1694-1774). who had published two articles on agriculture in the Encyclopedie: "Fermiers" (1756) and "Grains" (1757). Pattullo, a Scot, has been described as Quesnay's "first foreign disciple". Henry Pattullo, possibly a Jacobite exile who fled to France following the '45, is an obscure but important figure in 18th century writing on agriculture. "[His] Essay on the Improvement of Land (...) was the first work to describe properly the new methods of crop rotation practised in England and Flanders" (Milward & Saul, The Economic Development of Continental Europe 1780-1870, p. 80). A lovely copy of a seminal work.

        Characteristics of the present political state of Great Britain.

      A. Millar 1758 - Londres, A. Millar, 1758. In 8 de XVIII-236pp., reliure en plein veau fauve moucheté de l'époque, plats remontés le long des mors restaurés, dos à 5 nerfs restauré, surlignés de doubles filets estampés, et soulignés de filets estampés, double filet estampé à la tête du dos et deux doubles filets estampés à la queue du dos, pièce de titre de maroquin marron surlignée et soulignée de petits filets ondulés dorés, titre doré, rousseurs éparses, papier bruni aux marges de la page de titre, des pages de garde et de la dernière page du texte, ainsi qu'aux marges du papier des contreplats, tranches latérale et inférieure mouchetées de rouges, tranche supérieure noire, roulettes estampées sur les coupes légèrement noircies, ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre noire sur la page de titre, intérieur frais, grandes marges, bel ex-libris héraldique, bel exemplaire. L'auteur écrivit un livre important, qui reste son oeuvre maîtresse et la plus connue sur le thème de la démographie, largement influencée par les thèses de Montesquieu: ''A dissertation on the number of mankind in antient and modern times''. Dans cet ouvrage, Robert Wallace soutenait que la population à l'époque de l'antiquité était plus nombreuse que celle présente au XVIIIème siècle. Cette affirmation se heurta aux sceptiques, notamment Voltaire en France et David Hume en Angleterre, qui soutenaient que l'on ne possédait aucune donnée fiable et aucune certitude et que cette théorie n'était que pure spéculation, sans aucun fondement, ni statistique ni scientifique. Ce livre sur l'état politique de la Grande Bretagne étudie et analyse principalement la politique de gestion des finances publiques du pays, et la santé financière de ce dernier, abordant des sujets tels que la richesse de l'Ecosse suite à la politique d'investissement de banques, la question du crédit papier et surtout les dettes publiques et les charges de la dette d'un état.

        Account of Russia as it Was in the Year 1710

      Twickenham: Strawberry Hill Private Press, 1758. 1st edition, printed by Horace Walpole at his "neo-Gothic" villa, Strawberry Hill, represented in an engraving on the title page in an early stage of its construction. (It was finished, I believe, in 1776). Walpole also wrote the anonymous introduction. This copy is an old rebinding with minimal ex-library marks. The boards are polished speckled leather with gilt borders, raised bands and gilt title on spine, red edges. A handsome book in spite of some scrapes on the spine. Bookplate on front pastedown states: "The Library of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Bequest of Julia Morgan Marlatt". Small lib. stamp on obverse of title page, crossed by 'withdrawn' stamp. Pencilled note on 1st page of text reads, "Gift. Julia M. Marlatt, 2-13-42". There are also pencilled notes by an owner on the 2nd blank page, mentioning among other things that this is the 5th production of Walpole's press. Prelims have moderate foxing; almost none in text. The title page is much less bright than the rest; apparently the book was left unbound for a while, and the title page collected some soiling, and a tear on the foreedge. Overall a good plus copy. Has xxiv-page intro, 158 pp. text, errata page in rear.. First Edition. Hard Cover.

The pamphlet describes their plans for ridding London of violent gangs, for dealing with the problems of beggars and homeless boys and girls, and gaming in public houses.

At the time of writing the issue of tolerance had come up again, and Caveirac&#39;s work made a considerable stir. The author of the N.B.G. article on him compared it to Naude&#39;s work of similar title on science and magic.

        An album of botanical paintings on vellum. Drawings dated 1781-1782.

      Folio album (mount dimensions 460 x 65 mm, vellum sheet dimensions 300 x 235 mm), comprising 35 botanical paintings, 16 of which are by Peter Brown and signed by him, body- and watercolours on vellum, the vellums mounted within a green and yellow wash frame borders on heavy card, the Montagu paintings numbered consecutively 1-19, the Brown painting unnumbered; contemporary straight-grained morocco, elaborate gilt panels with green and yellow morocco overlays with greek key border, floral border, gilt greek key dentelles, spine with elaborate gilt panels and green morocco label 'Drawings', gilt edges, bookplate and label of Kimbolton Castle on front marbled paper pastedown. A fine series of beautifully executed paintings of exotic flowering plants, recently introduced into cultivation. They were painted by Peter Brown and his pupil Elizabeth Montagu in the style of Ehret. Peter Brown (fl 1758-99) was court painter to the Prince of Wales, and probable pupil of Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708 - 1770). Elizabeth Montagu (1741-1832) was an accomplished botanical artist herself, and was probably taught by Brown. Some of the Brown paintings also contain insects./The South African plant specimens present, such as the Bird of Paradise is a monocotyledonous flowering plant indigenous to South Africa. Common names include Strelitzia, Crane Flower or Bird of Paradise, reflect some of the introductions made by the botanist and plant collector Francis Masson (1741-1805), who was sent by Kew Gardens to South Africa in 1772 to collect plants and bulbs. He collected until the end of 1775, before going on to the Canaries, Azores, Maderia, and West Indies (where many of the other plants depicted derive from), returning to England in 1781. This time frame matches closely that of the present album. He was working under the aegis of Sir Joseph Banks, director of Kew, and also friend of George Montagu, Elizabeth's husband, so a Masson/Kew provenance of some of the plants is most likely./Two of the Montagu paintings are dated: number seven is dated 1781 and number twelve 1782.
