        Ynddiddan Rhwng Wr Dall Ar ANGEU Neu Rybydd I Bawb Ynghyd Annogaeth I Ymbaratoi

      Shrewsbury?: Thomas Durston?, 1760 Ynddiddan Rhwng Wr Dall Ar ANGEU Neu Rybydd I Bawb Ynghyd Annogaeth I Ymbaratoi Erbyn Awr Angeu. Gwrandewch Addyfc a Byddwch Ddoethion, Nag Ymwrthodwch a Hi. Dihar 8. 30.. Shrewsbury?, Thomas Durston? c 1760?, 10*16.5cm, 16 pp, large woodcut of death discoursing with a man on title page, some outer margins shaved, affecting a few letters. A rare 18th century Welsh Ballad, a dialogue between death and an old man in 98 stanzas, beginning: Yr heneint mwyn Penllwydion, gwyr Ifenge teg ei gram, A ddeweh yn nes ei wrando, yn fawrion ag yn fan .. The subtitle roughly translates as a warning for all with help for preperation for the hour of death. The woodcut on the title page shows a skeletal figure of Death with an arrow discoursing with an old man. The title-page of another 18th C edition of this ballad, printed by Thomas Durston at Shrewsbury, with the same woodcut of death and the old man, is reproduced as image 51 in Philip Henry Jones (ed), A Nation and its books, a history of the books in Wales (Aberystwyth, 1998). The accompanying caption reads An eighteenth-century Shrewsbury printed ballad, Ymddiddan rhwng Hen wr Dall ar Angeu. For once, the illustration related to the text: Death holds forth to the blind old man. First published in Cynghorian Tad i'w Fab (London, 1683). This ballad retained its popularity well into the nineteenth century. Due to the same woodcut being used it would seem likely that this edition was also printed in Shrewsbury. Not in Rees. Davies, A bibliography of Welsh Ballads (London 1911) records another edition printed by Thomas Durston (no 5). This edition not in ESTC. ((Based on Richard Standfast's Dialogue between a blind man and death))

        The Monmouth of 64 Guns taking the Foudroyant a French Man of War

      [London], 1760. No binding. Good. circa 1760. Very early edition. This hand-coloured engraving was trimmed to the edges 290mm x 458mm ( 11 3/8" x 17 9/16") and mounted to a dark card stock. The English only title was mounted on the reverse on the reverse of the dark mounted card. The trimmed mounted engraving has wear to the corners causing some minor rounding. There is surface dirt, soiling and spotting on the engraving more so on the sky area. Good condition. Full title:The Monmouth of 64 Guns taking the Foudroyant a French Man of War of 84 guns, on the 28 of Feby. 1758 in the Mediterranean. In this action the English had 30 kill'd (including the gallant commander) & 80 wounded, the French 50 kill'd & 150 wounded. NB The Monmouth carries 12 & 24 Pounders, the Foudroyant 24 and 42"This is one of the most heroic single ship actions in British naval history, and can be regarded as a direct consequence of the execution of Admiral John Byng. Captain Gardiner had perhaps an especially compelling reason for his do-and-die endeavour. His death and the spectacular defeat of the Foudroyant struck deeply into the heart of the English people of the time, and Swaine's painting was repeatedly engraved" quoted from National Maritime museum web site.

        Untitled Watercolor of a Maritime Scene

      - Little is known about Samuel Atkins, a watercolor marine artist, who worked during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Born in London in 1760, Atkins began exhibiting his work at the Royal Academy in 1787 and would continue to do so over the next 21 years. Atkins sailed with the East India Trading Company from 1796 to 1804, thus many of his works include Trading Company portraiture and vessels. The skillful mastery of Atkins's maritime scenes reflects the expertise he gained during these voyages. Upon returning to England, Atkins entered his last Royal Academy exhibition in 1808. He taught drawing before his death in 1810 at the age of 50. This untitled work demonstrates Atkins's remarkable skill as a watercolorist. Both vessels are finely detailed and nautically accurate in regards to their masts, and rigging from bow to stern. Each ship flies the civil ensign of the British Empire marking them as merchant vessels. Atkins's use of grays and blues demonstrates the powerful ocean on which he sails. Samuel Atkins works can be found in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, the British Museum, both in London, and the National Maritime Museum, in Greenwich England, and the Peabody Essex Museum in Massachusetts.

        STUDJ DI PITTURA GIA’ DISEGNATI DA GIAMBATISTA PIAZZETTA ED ORA CON L’INTAGLIO DI MARCO PITTERI Pubblicati a spese di Giambatista Albrizzi, sotto gli auspicj di Sua Eccellenza Carlo Conte, e Signore de Firmian.

      Venezia,, 1760.. In-4 p. oblungo (mm. 307x412), mz. pelle coeva, filetti e tit. oro al dorso, antiporta figur. con ritratto, frontespizio inciso in rosso e nero con vignetta, 18 cc. di testo, ornato da 3 pregevoli grandi capilettera figurati, 1 testata alle armi e 2 finali (uno con il celebre ritratto inciso dal Piazzetta stesso, datato 1738); con 48 tavole numerate I-XLVIII, il tutto inc. in rame. La raccolta è introdotta da ?"Memorie intorno alla vita di G. Piazzetta?" (scritte dall?'Albrizzi) e da alcuni avvertimenti per ?"lo incamminamento di un giovane alla pittura?" del bolognese Gian-Pietro Cavazzoni Zannotti. In alcuni esemplari si può trovare allegata la lista degli associati. "Prima edizione" postuma, voluta da Giovan Battista Albrizzi (1698-1777). L?'attività del celebre pittore veneziano Piazzetta (1682-1754) negli ultimi vent?'anni di vita si era concentrata sulla produzione di disegni, molti dei quali preparati per edizioni divenute celeberrime, come la "Gerusalemme Liberata", uscite dai torchi del grande amico Albrizzi. L?'editore veneziano aveva anche chiesto all?'artista di fornirgli una serie di disegni per una edizione ad uso degli amanti della pittura. A sei anni dalla morte del Piazzetta uscì dunque questo libro per il quale l?'Albrizzi si avvalse della collaborazione di due valenti incisori: Alvise Pitteri (1702-1786) e Francesco Bartolozzi (1728-1815). Cfr. Morazzoni, p. 129: ?"Le chiare squillanti tavole degli "Studi di pittura" hanno una freschezza inarrivabile e una gaiezza veramente comunicativa, e ben si comprende come questo "album" nella Veneta Pubblica Accademia, appena stampato, venisse imposto agli scolari come testo obbligatorio di studio. Cfr. anche Knox ?"G.B. Piazzetta?" (Neri Pozza, 1983), pp. 81/82: ?"Ai fini didattici l?'Albrizzi fece incidere i disegni a contorno appena ombreggiato dal Bartolozzi (ma il suo nome appare soltanto nella tarda ristampa che ne fece Teodoro Viero) e con perfetta, finita ombreggiatura, dal Pitteri: tutti i soggetti sono ripetuti due volte.. Dell?'opera si conoscono più stati. Nel primo - che è il più raro - i nudi maschili sono integrali. Nel secondo stato appaiono aggiunte le foglie di fico. In questi due stati le tavole sono numerate da I a XXIV. Vi è poi un?'ediz. con numerazione unica e continua da I a XLVIII. L?'omaggio al Piazzetta non sarebbe stato completo se l?'Albrizzi non avesse ricordato, in pagine fondamentali per la conoscenza dell?'artista, la figura del suo "grande e cordiale amico", dell?'artista difficile che "prefissa si era per guida l?'idea della perfezione"; e a suggello delle sue righe l?'editore poneva l?'unica acquaforte che abbia fatto il Piazzetta?" - Schlosser, p. 561 - Cicognara,345 - Cicogna,4657. Con dediche ms., tracce d?'uso e qualche lieve alone marginale ma certamente un buon esemplare.

Apart from agricultural questions and recommendations he describes ways and means to encourage land owners and farmers to cultivate the fallow land of France. His writings experienced great success.
