        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]

        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))

        Scenographia Pontis hodie Mollis

      Rome - John Wilton-Ely 600The watermark that is present is number 33 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1161 and is dated between 1760 to 1761.This print is from the series \"Il Campo Marzio dell\' Antica Roma\"\"The Campo Marzio occupies a special place in Piranesi\'s artistic development, in terms of both his ideas and his imaginative use of visual techniques in support of them. Like the other treaties of the 1760s, this work is a sophisticated blend of archaeology and polemic in which historical evidence is employed to defend the creative genius of Rome. There are also sugns of the artist\'s growing concern with the problem of modern design, and the publication is, significantly dedicated to the British architect Robert Adam, who shared Piranesi\'s belief in the imaginative use of antiquity.\" (John Wilton Ely II pg 613)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and \"like Callot makes great use of the swelling line\" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi\'s own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons,

        Lettres et Memoires Pour servir a L&#39;histoire Naturelle, Civile et Politique Du Cap Breton, Depuis Son Etablissment Jusqu&#39;a La Reprise De Cette Isle Par Les Anglois En 1758

      The Hague and London: Pierre grosse and Jean Nourse, 1760. 12mo., (6 4/8 x 4 inches). Half-title. Contemporary French mottled calf, spine in six compartments with five raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in one, the others decorated with small floral tools (head of the spine chipped with minor loss and lower joint just starting, corners worn with minor loss). First Edition of "One of the few reliable published sources...about the French in Acadia during the 18th century"(DCB). "Pichon came to Canada from France in 1751 as secretary (till 1753) to the governor of Cape Breton (Jean-Louis de Raymond); he served in the vicinity till 1758...(TPL). "Pichon&#39;s work, composed in the form of letters written from Louisbourg, beginning in 1752 and ending with the capitulation of that fortress to the English in 1758, constitutes one of the few reliable published sources about the French in Acadia during the 18th century"(DCB). The letters provide a clear and accurate description of Ile Saint-Jean (Prince Edward Island), the trade with New England, the manners and customs of the Micmac and Malecite Indians, the French government in Louisbourg, military events and the causes of the war. One of Pichon&#39;s major responsibilities during his brief appointment was preparing the governor&#39;s reports to France, a task which allowed him to gather much valuable information he was to use in the writing of this book. Sent to Fort Beausejour (Chignecto), in 1753 he succumbed to the bribes of the commanding officer at Fort Lawrence, Captain George Scott and for more than a year engaged in espionage and subterfuge against the French under the assumed name Tyrell. The information he sold to Scott apparently enabled Col. Robert Monckton to capture the French fort at Chignecto in 1755. After some time spent as a prisoner of war, Pichon retired to England, where he was awarded a pension. Lande 710; Sabin 62610; Staton & Tremaine/TPL 274.

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

      Thomas Durston?, Shrewsbury? 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))
