        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.

        Writing to his brother from London, John Hancock dispenses priceless advice, ??Let your Conduct be such as to merit the Esteem of all about you, & Remember that the Diligent Hand maketh Rich.?

      "Autograph Letter Signed,?Jno Hancock,?, 2.5p, front and back of two conjoined sheets, 8.5? x 7?, December 27, 1760, London, England, with address leaf in Hancock?s hand, to William Ebenezer Hancock, Boston, with remnants of a blackwax seal. Writing from London while attending his uncle?s business, a young John Hancock asks about his uncle and aunts, congratulates his sister?s marriage, talks about his own ill health and recovery, and inquires about the house slaves at the Hancock Mansion. In full, ?I have before me yo.r agreeable Letters of Nov.r by Capt Bride, & desire you will write one by every oppry [opportunity] & acquaint me more particularly with the Circumstances of my Uncle?s Family. I am glad to hear you are well, & earnestly beg you will give great Attention to Business, & let yo.r Conduct be such as to merit the Esteem of all about you, & Remember that the Diligent Hand maketh Rich. I Expect on my Return to find you a Compleat Merch.t I am much pleas?d at the Advantages you have before you, of which I doubt not but you will make the proper Improvement. / I observe by yor Letter our Sister is Married, & that you was [sic] with them at the Celebration of it, I wish them great Happiness & Satisfaction, I hope they will meet with nothing to Interrupt their Quiet, they have my best wishes, I [p2] I shall write you again soon. Have me Remembered in the strongest Terms of Affection to my Uncle & Aunt Love to all in the Family, particularly Hannah & Betsy. How is Molly, & how does Cate behave. Is Agniss a Breeding, Is Prince as gouty as ever, & Hannibal as peevish as formerly tell him I think of him, as he was the last of the family I saw on the Wharf. How is Thomas & in short all. / I have been lately ill, but am upon the Recovery, hope soon to get abroad again. / I wish you, with Hannah Betsy & all the family many happy New Years. / The Compliments of the Season attend you, & I am / My dear, Your Affectionate Brother / Jno Hancock [post script] Remember my Love to Nicholas Bower, & all of my Acquaintances My Respects to _______ & Brown Mr Ebenr Hancock Forward the Inclosd Letters to Bridgewater [p3] Tell Hannah that at Mr Barnard?s where I am ill, is a young woman who is Remarkably Tender & kind to one in any Illness, & often brings her to my mind, that I am as well attended as I could ever desire, & that I am very well off, but had much rather be ill, if I must be so, where my Aunt & she is, But that this young woman is exactly the Image of her in Respect of a good and tender Nurse.?In 1760, future Declaration of Independence signer John Hancock lived in London while learning the English side of his Thomas Hancock?s merchant firm. Thomas, his uncle, had adopted John upon the death of his father in 1744. Here, the 23-year-old writes to younger brother Ebenezer, encouraging his sibling to work diligently to build himself up in business, considering the advantage of family connections given to the two orphans. When John returned to America in 1761, Thomas?s health had declined to the point that John began playing a greater role in the business. His appeal to Ebenezer to ? every oppry [opportunity]. & acquaint me more particularly with the Circumstances of my Uncle?s Family? may have reflected his uncle?s poor condition.He notes his sister Mary?s marriage to Richard Perkins, and inquires about the rest of the family, wishing to be ?Remembered in the strongest Terms of Affection to my Uncle & Aunt? Thomas and Lydia Hancock. The ?Hannah & Betsy? to whom he refers were aunts, both women being the sisters of Thomas.Most interestingly, he inquires about ?Molly,? asks if ?Cato? was behaving, is curious if ?Agniss? was pregnant or having children, queries whether ?Prince? still had the gout, and if ?Hannibal? remained ?peevish.?These five individuals were the Hancock family slaves, (although Molly, a maid, was possibly white) who lived with the family in the Hancock mansion on Beacon Hill in Boston. Prince was also known as ?Prince Holmes,? and John would inherit them along with the rest of Thomas?s estate in 1764. Hancock clearly considered the slaves a part of the family, even bringing them gifts when he returned from London. (Cato received a cap and French horn). Thomas also left his slaves small bequests in his will, and provided for the freedom of, at least, Cato, upon turning 30 years of age. Most of Thomas?s slaves were freed by the terms of his will. "

        An album of 106 beautifully hand-coloured watercolour drawings of shells.

      English, early 19th century. Contemporary red morocco, gilt ornamented spine in 5 compartments, sides with gilt and blind-pressed borders and ornaments, gilt edges, inside dentelles, brass lock and catch, with the ticket of Eland + Exeter. The beautifully executed shell drawings measure 320 x 290mm. and portray mostly exotic shells in the style of Thomas Martyn. Most of the plates show two specimens. The final drawing remained unfinished. Thomas Martyn (fl. 1760-1816) established an Academy of youths ... possessing a natural genius for drawing and painting, to be cultivated and exerted under his immediate and sole direction,' in delineating objects of natural history. He had in 1789 ten apprentices, and for his 'Universal Conchologist' (1784), the first work issued with their assistance, he was awarded gold medals by Pope Pius VI, the Emperor Joseph II, Ferdinand IV of Naples, and Charles IV of Spain. Probably the present drawings are by one of his pupils. The collection is bound in a very attractive full red morocco binding.

        manuscrit) Essai sur l’usage de l’artillerie dans la guerre de campagne et dans celle des sièges. Par un officier du corps Royal de l’Artillerie

      S.L. , 1760 - In-4 (19cm./24cm.). Manuscrit de 197ff. non paginés,notes en bas de pages, texte à l’encre brune , encadrement au crayon. Plein veau blond double filet sur les plats, fleurons dans les angles, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges. Ce manuscrit, daté de 1760, est antérieur de 11ans à la version imprimée écrite par «Un officier du corps Royal de l’Artillerie» ( 1771 à Amsterdam ou Paris, in-8). et attribué par Barbier II, 236 à DUPUGET (1742-1801).Notre texte est très proche de cette version: seules certaines formulations sont différentes. ». Il se compose de 3 parties. 1/Discours préliminaire. 2/Première partie: de l’usage de l’artillerie en campagne. 2/ Deuxième partie De l’usage de l’artillerie dans les sièges. Il s’agit d’un des manuscrits ayant circulé avant l’impression de l’ouvrage; il ne ffigure pas dans le catalogue Calames et est particulièrement intéressant par sa date et par son état de conservation. L’auteur fit carrière dans l’armée et s’intéresse plus à la tactique au combat qu’à l’aspect technique de l’artillerie. On connaît de lui deux ouvrages: «l’essai sur l’artillerie « et un mémoire détaillé sur la construction des piles». Très bel exemplaire [Attributes: Hard Cover]
