      Amsterdam, Utrecht: Isaak Tirion, 1760. FIRST EDITION, first printing. Text in Dutch. 3 volumes. 1760, 1765, 1767. Complete set. The volumes have been professionally rebacked retaining original red and black morocco labels. There are five raised bands with gilt ruling and tooled design to the spine the boards are original and show the wear you would expect of books this age. Each book has the original green ribbon bookmark. Volume 1: Faded gilt title on spine; Some light soiling to end pages up to title page due to finger-prints; very light, very occasional foxing. Volume 2: Cracked label of volume number on spine; Front cover has 3 medium sized scratches. Volume 3: Repaired crack to rear board. It does not affect the binding and is only unsightly; Occasional light tanning. This is a famous 3 part set which contains a description and history of Amsterdam. It includes 78 plates, portraits, and maps. The Author, Jan Wagenaar, was the first historian to have access to the municipal archives, on which he based much of his book. Jan Wagenaar (Amsterdam, 28 oktober 1709 - Amsterdam, 1 maart 1773) is een Nederlands geschiedschrijver. Jan Wagenaar was de zoon van een schoenmaker. Klerk geworden op een koopmanskantoor, wijdde hij zijn vrije tijd aan de bestudering der natuurkunde. Op uitnodiging van de uitgever schreef hij De Tegenwoordige Staat van Utrecht. Hierdoor kreeg hij aardigheid in de beoefening der Vaderlandse Geschiedenis. In 1749 verscheen van hem het eerste deel der Vaderlandsche Historie, die in 1759 was gevorderd tot het twintigste deel. Eerst bij dit deel gaf Wagenaar zich als de schrijver op, hoewel men reeds lang vermoedde, dat hij de auteur was. De regering van Amsterdam benoemde hem in 1756 tot stadhistorieschrijver, waarvoor hem toegang in de archieven werd gegeven. In 1768 verschijnt dan AMSTERDAM, IN ZYNE OPKOMST, AANWAS, GESCHIEDENISSEN, VOORREGTEN, KOOPHANDEL, GEBOUWEN, KERKENSTAAT, SCHOOLEN, SCHUTTERYE, GILDEN EN REGEERINGE, etc. (13 delen). In zijn werken maakt Wagenaar gebruik van allerlei bronnen geeft hij naast politieke geschiedenis, ook kerkgeschiedenis en economische geschiedenis weer. Zijn voorstelling is niet onpartijdig, vooral Staatsgezinden worden door hem verdedigd. Bilderdijk bestreed zijn geschiedopvatting.. First Edition. Half Calf Leather. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Hardcover.

        A View of Coombank near Sevenoak in Kent, the Seat of the Honble. Lieutt. Genl. Campbell / Veüe de Coombank, dans la Comté de Kent. Maison de L'honble. Lieutt. Genl. Campbell [Pl. 29]

      London: Printed for John Bowles & Son, at the Black Horse in Cornhill, T. Bowles in St. Pauls Church Yard, Robt. Sayer at the Golden Buck in Fleet Street. J. Boydell, circa 1760. Engraving, printed on fine laid paper. Very good condition. 14 1/2 x 21 1/8 inches. 17 x 23 3/8 inches. A fine image of the verdant country estate of General Campbell, Baron Sundridge of Coombank. Born in Maidstone in 1735, William Woollett was one of the most renowned landscape engravers of his time and the first English engraver to achieve popular success in continental Europe. His artistic aptitude became apparent at an early age, and he was sent to London to train at St. Martin's Lane Academy and apprentice with the engraver and printseller John Tinney. Woollett began his career with a series of topographical views, but first truly distinguished himself as skilled engraver with the publication of his print of Richard Wilson's Destruction of the Children of Niobe. His copious plates after artists such as Stubbs, Vernet, and Claude proved so popular, that many of them were copied by engravers on the Continent. Beginning in 1766, he became an active member of the Society of Artists, where he served in a variety of positions. Although he specialized in landscapes, Woollett also engraved a number of marine and historical scenes including the print for which he is most famous, Death of General Wolfe after Benjamin West, and for which he was received the honorable title of Historical Engraver to His Majesty.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED

      [King's Cliffe]. 14 June 1760.. One page, closely written in ink, on recto only of 21 x 17.5 cm lettersheet. with blots and corrections. Old folds, slight darkening along top margin, with vestiges of old mounting tabs on verso, otherwise very good. A fine letter from Law (1686 - 1761) to an admirer, written toward the end of his life, in productive and contemplative retirement in the village of his birth, ca. 150 words. He writes, in part: "I am very glad that yr Lady yr Friend has any Taste for my Books. I heartily Wish that they may help her to know & find, that wh. St. Peter knew ... For this is the Drift of all my Writings, to bring the Reader to St. Peter's Conviction, that Christ alone hath the words of Eternal Life, & therefore neither of pious men, or pious Books are any to be lik'd, but so far as they turn us from all Adherence to your Selves & their own Words, to Him who is the WORD ... always speaking within us as never man or Angel ever did, or can speak to us ...." He continues on noting that "In this place there is no Convenience of Board & Lodging as you enquire after ...," and suggests that such news might help prevent disappointment on the part of the recipient's friend. He closes: "I am with Much good Wishes to her & your Self, your Obedient Servant in Christ W. Law." Both as a controversialist in his defense of religious faith, and as an author of works of practical divinity, Law had a substantial influence on 18th century religion, particularly upon the theology and practice of John Wesley, "who reaped where Law had sown" - PMM. His best known work, A SERIOUS CALL TO A DEVOUT AND HOLY LIFE (1728) held major significance for readers as disparate as Samuel Johnson, George Whitefield, Edward Gibbon and Lord Lyttelton. Manuscript letters by Law are scarce in commerce, no examples appearing in American auction records in the last fifty years. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 187.

        [Plan of Fort George on the Island of New Britain] Plan von Fort Georg auf der insel New Britannien, er Funden von Whilhem Dampiere, anno 1700

      circa 1760. Gouache, painted on fine watermarked laid paper, in excellent condition. 20 x 27 7/8 inches. A rare fictional manuscript plan of Fort George on the Island of New Britain, Papua New Guinea. This fascinating manuscript map depicts an English fort on the island of New Britain off the coast of Papua New Guinea. Although the fort is identified as Fort George, there appears to be no historical reference to a fort by that name ever existing on New Britain. In fact the shape of the island and the complicated layout of the ramparts suggests that this representation is fictional rather than illustrative. The buildings, which are all identified in a numbered key, resemble medieval architecture rather than eighteenth century design, signifying that this fine painting is a product of the artist's romantic vision rather than a depiction of an actual place. It is likely that this magnificent painted plan was based on the accounts of William Dampier's travels published in his Voyages to New Holland (1703-9), which recounted his discovery of New Britain and the Dampier strait. Although fictional, this is a fascinating glimpse of eighteenth century cartography, which often relied more on written accounts and hypothetical theories than actual geographic surveys.

      1760 - [Engraving]. [Old Bailey]. Cole, Benjamin [fl. 1700-1767], Engraver. The Surgeon's Theatre in the Old Bailey, c. 1760. 8" x 13" copperplate engraving, handsomely matted and glazed, margins trimmed closely, image mounted on board. Negligible light toning to margins, negligible faint crease to right side of image. A nice copy in a handsome frame. * This engraving depicts the front elevation of the original home of the Royal College of Surgeons. From 1752 to 1832 death sentences for murder in Great Britain stipulated that the condemned person's corpse be "dissected and anatomised" for the benefit of medical students shortly after the execution. This is why the Old Bailey had a surgeon's theatre. Hogarth's "The Reward of Cruelty," The Four Stages of Cruelty, Plate 4, is a satirical depiction of a dissection in this building.

At 46, this bulky man with fierce baggy eyes had seen 32 years of service in the British navy. Despite his deceptively quiet personality, Saunders carried out his orders with dogged determination. His career up to this point was marked by no outstanding sea victories yet he had a reputation for being one of the best and luckiest officers in the Royal Navy. Now he was placed in overall command of a quarter of the Royal Navy. , September 12 saw a good deal of activity on the part of the Royal Navy, causing Montcalm to wonder where Wolfe was with the main part of his army. Saunders had stationed his fleet opposite the Beauport Lines, he didn't give the French a moments peace all day or night. On September 18, Admiral Saunders and Brigadier General George Townshend accepted the surrender of Quebec. Yet Saunders accomplishments did not end with the conquest of Quebec, he also provided the garrison with cannons, ammunition and provisions before he left, even to the extent of reducing his ships' stores. It may be that Quebec might well have been recaptured by the French under Francis de Gaston, Chevalier de Levis the following spring if not for the troops and supplies Saunders had left behind. Horace Wallpole once said of Saunders, "No man said less and deserves more." He died in 1775 and is buried in Westminster Abbey near the Wolfe memorial.

(2), XXX, 364; XII, 360. A wonderful set in exemplary condition, extremely fresh and clean, the paper unpressed and the impression is bold, dark and fine. A RARE, IMPORTANT AND VERY BEAUTIFUL EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC OF ITALIAN LITERATURE. The edition has long been considered one of the richest and most magnificent of the many editions of Tasso printed over the centuries. Poet, prose writer and literary theorist, Tasso was successor to and deviator from the tradition of Boiardo and Ariosto, he gave to the court of Ferrara the third of the great ottava rima epic romances celebrating the Este ancestry, Gerusalemme Liberata, and the purest example of Renaissance pastoral drama, Aminta. Even before its end, his life became a legend of poetic madness and wandering. Born in Sorrento, he shared the political exile of his father, Bernardo, and began his literary studies and his long experience of Italian courts in Urbino. He attended the universities of Padua and of Bologna, at 18 published Rinaldo, a chivalric poem in 12 cantos, and in 1565 took service with Cardinal Luigi d'Este. Although he completed the Liberata in 1575, Tasso was never to be satisfied with it in relation to neo-Aristotelian canons of epic poetry or to Counter-Reformation religious orthodoxy, and restlessly he consulted scholars on one score and ecclesiastical inquisitors on the other. In 1577 he was imprisoned for a paranoid display of violence in the presence of Lucrezia d'Este. He escaped to the south but, following another outburst on his return to Ferrara in 1579, was shut up in the hospital of S. Anna, to remain there until 1586. The Liberata was finally published in 1581, but Tasso continued to regard the poem as unfinished while it circulated in several editions from that year on. Released from S. Anna, he went to Mantua under the protection of Duke Vincenzo Gonzaga, and thence into a ceaseless vagabondage that took him to Genoa, Rome, Naples and Florence. He received hospitality from religious orders and academies, from the Medici, from the marquis Giambattista Manso, and from Pope Clement VIII and his nephew, to whom Tasso dedicated the only authorized version of his epic, much reworked and retitled.

        Plan von Fort Cumberland auf der insel St. Laurenti

      circa 1760. Gouache, painted on fine watermarked laid paper, in excellent condition. 19 7/8 x 28 1/8 inches. A rare fictional manuscript plan of Fort Cumberland in Canada. This fascinating manuscript map purports to depict the English Fort Cumberland on the island of St. Lawrence. Closer research has uncovered that there was no Fort Cumberland on a St. Lawrence island. It is possible that the artist is referring to Fort Cumberland, located on the Bay of Fundy in Canada, which is near the St. Lawrence River. Originally named Fort Beausejour, the fort was erected by the French in 1751. It was captured by the British in 1755 and renamed Fort Cumberland. The fort was located on the coast rather than an island and was used to command the territory between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. The location as well as the complicated layout of the ramparts suggests that this representation is fictional rather than illustrative. The buildings, which are all identified in a numbered key, resemble medieval architecture rather than eighteenth century design, signifying that this fine painting is a product of the artist's romantic vision rather than a depiction of an actual place. Accounts of the exploration of North America and Canada circulated throughout Britain and the Continent, and it is most likely that this magnificent painted plan was based on these texts. Although fictional, this is a fascinating glimpse of eighteenth century cartography, which often relied more on written accounts and hypothetical theories than actual geographic surveys.

        Asia, Concinnata Secundum Observationes Academia Regalis Scientiarum et nonnullas alias, et juxta annotations recentissimas per G. de L'Isle... [Pl. 3]

      Augsburg: Published by Lotter., circa 1760. Engraving with lovely later colour. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition, with the exception of a small waterstain in upper margin outside platemark and lower right corner.19 ½ x 23 ¼ inches. 20 7/8 x 25 1/16 inches. A fine map of Asia by the prolific cartographic publisher Tobias Lotter. Tobias Conrad Lotter married into Matthaeus Seutter's well-established publishing business. He became one of the most prolific cartographic publishers on the Continent, and produced a vast array of fine maps ranging in scope from double hemispheres to celestial charts. Lotter took over Seutter's business in 1756 and continued to publish Seutter's reworked plates until his death in 1777. Like Seutter's and Lotter's maps are distinguished by their rich colours and ornate cartouches. This beautiful map of Asia is considered one of Lotter's best maps. Covering the whole of Asia, the map includes the East Indies and the tip of New Guinea. The fictional Terra de la Compagnie is included above Japan, and Korea is shown as a peninsula. Japan is connected to the mainland by a country identified as Terra Yeco. The most impressive portion of the map is the depiction of southeast Asia, as Indochina, Indonesia and the Philippines gradually assume their true outlines.

In the work "Théorie du mouvement des comètes" ("Theory on the Movement of Comets" 1760) Clairaut predicted the date that Halley's comet would be at perihelion, the point it would be nearest the sun, was April 13, 1759. The actual date was March 13, just within the allowed-for margins of error. There was a suggestion that Halley's Comet be renamed for Clairaut and he was hailed as the "new Thales." A very nice and bright copy..
