        L'Interieur du Port de Marseille

      1760 - Acquaforte e bulino, datata e firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, alcuni restauri perfettamente eseguiti, tracce di colla la verso, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. La tavola deriva da uno dei celebri dipinti di Joseph Vernet, ed è incisa a 4 mani dal Cochin e da Jacques Philippe Le Bas. È grazie al patrocinio di M. de Martigny, Direttore degli Belli Arti e fratello di Madame de Pompadour, che aveva a quel tempo tutte il favore di Luigi XV, che Vernet ha ottenuto del Re un ordine per 24 dipinti dove poteva dare tutta la misura del suo talento: la rapprezentanza dei porti della Francia. La moda di grandi composizioni rappresentando i marine è cominciata. Nel 1753, l'artista dipinge due Vedute del porto di Marsiglia che gli valgono l'anno successivo l'ammissione all'Accademia Reale di Parigi. Terminò il suo lavoro, dopo ben 12 anni di viaggio per le città francesi, nel 1765. Etching with engravings, signed and dated at lower center. A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, some expert repairs at the back, otherwise in good condition. This plate is engraved by Cochin & Jacques Philippe Le Bas, after a painting by Joseph Vernet. Vernet was commissioned by Louis XV in 1753 to paint fifteen views of the main ports of France, and given the exceptional title of "peintre des marines de sa majesté". He spent twelve years travelling around the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Channel coasts with his family and servants in tow. The country was at war with England at the time, and Louis specifically requested that the artist show off the economic activities and maritime strength of France, which Vernet did to much acclaim. The majority of the paintings are in the Musée de la Marine in Paris. Arlaud 244; IFF 310.II. Dimensioni 750 540mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        L'uomo sulla cremagliera

      1760 - Acquaforte, bulino, tinta allo zolfo e bruniture, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Tavola II della seconda edizione delle 'Carceri'. Esemplare nel secondo stato di sei secondo Robison, della contemporanea edizione romana. Magnifica prova,impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB", ampi margini, consueta piega centrale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Senza dubbio la serie più nota e celebrata fra le opere del Piranesi. La serie è databile intorno al 1745, e comprendeva quattordici tavole, includendo il frontespizio che portava il titolo di Invenzioni Capric di Carceri all’acquaforte datte in luce da Giovanni Buzard in Roma, mercante al Corso. Una seconda stesura delle stesse, subito successiva, recava il titolo con il nome dell’editore giustamente corretto in Bouchard. E’ fuori di dubbio che l’idea, assolutamente innovativa, per la realizzazione di questa opera nasce da un collegamento molto stretto con la serie denominata Prima Parte di Architetture non solo per la vicinanza di tempo che intercorre tra i due lavori, ma proprio per il preciso intendimento ideologico che l’artista aveva in quel periodo in fatto di architettura. La serie venne ripubblicata dopo ben quindici anni, nel 1761, ampiamente riveduta e corretta. Il Piranesi non era nuovo a ripensamenti e variazioni sulle proprie opere, ma molto interessante è analizzare il motivo che lo indusse a riproporre, cambiandolo nella forma, questo importante lavoro. Le esperienze archeologiche condotte nello studio che porterà alle Antichità Romane (1756), le polemiche con architetti e le loro teorie del periodo, la consapevolezza di aver affinato ancora la propria tecnica stilistica, e il variato concetto architettonico lo indussero a mettere mano alle Carceri. E’ con questa nuova ed arricchita sapienza incisoria che l’artista va a ripescare le vecchie lastre, e dopo la rielaborazione, le ripresenta nel pieno della figura polemica e della lotta ideologica in fatto di architettura che in quegli anni conduceva. La riproposizione della serie rappresenta per il Piranesi un aspetto ben preciso, ovvero ripresentare, rinforzandolo, il messaggio polemico e di polemica architettonica già affrontato quindi anni prima. Lo scardinamento degli spazi e della prospettiva, della logica e di tutti i principi comuni affermati nei trattati, rottura totale con le leggi tradizionali e gli insegnamenti accademici dell’architettura. Due sono le tavole aggiunte nella seconda edizione, che quindi comprende il frontespizio e quindici lastre. Notevoli le differenze stilistiche tra il corpus dell’opera e le due nuove lastre, dove notevoli sono la complessità di struttura e di composizione architettonica, che dimostrano il cambiamento avvenuto in seguito allo studio archeologico dei grandi monumenti romani. Di diverso aspetto l’effetto emotivo che suscita la visione delle singole opere che compongono la serie, che con il loro aspetto malinconico costituiscono un elemento di perenne richiamo, di inesausta vitalità, e di estrema modernità. I ponti sospesi, le reti, i ballatoi, le scale e quanto altro presente nelle Carceri sono stati esame di numerosi studi, che una copiosa letteratura ha colto sin dal romanticismo, dando loro una grande popolarità, esaltandone le molteplici reazioni emozionali che le stesse conferivano. Etching, engraving, sulphur tint and burnishing, 1750, signed at lower left. From the Carceri set, plate II of the second edition. Example in the secondo state of six described by Robison, from the contemporary roman edition (Robison dated to 1761). A magnific impression, printed with black ink on contemporary laid paper with watermark "double encircled fleur de lys with letters CB", with margins, very good condition. Magnificent example, from the contemporary second edition, printed on thick paper typically used by Piranesi. Undoubtedly these is the best known and most celebrated series among the works by Piranesi. The series, datable aroun [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Augsburg 1760 - Splendida veduta panoramica della città di Milano, disegnata da Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776) e pubblicata ad Augusta - l'antica Augusta Vindelicorum - da Johann Friedrich Probst. In alto a destra, lo stemma della città. Legenda in italiano con 63 voci. Sotto l'immagine, a sinistra il nome del disegnatore "F. I. Saur del". In fondo alla legenda, a sinistra "Georg Balthasar Probst excud. Aug. Vind". Al centro, sotto alla legenda "Cum Gratia et Privilegio Sac Ecc Maiestati" e, più avanti "No. 106". Una spettacolare veduta panoramica di Milano progettata da Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776) . Con il titolo in un cartiglio in alto, affiancato a destra dallo stemma della città. Werner (1690-1776) è nato in Slesia. Durante la sua gioventù condusse una vita avventurosa, lavorando come ingegnere militare e cartografo, viaggiando come medico ciarlatano, lavorando come operatore con un teatro a Praga e traducendo libretti per un gruppo di comici erranti. Ma dopo il suo matrimonio, nel 1718, iniziò una nuova vita e si concentrò sullo sviluppo delle sue innegabili doti artistiche e cartografiche. Queste abilità lo mise in contatto con diversi rivenditori importanti d'arte ed editori in Augsburg, soprattutto gli eredi di Jeremias Wolff ( 1663-1724). Iniziò a delineare una serie di panorami di città europee, che riscossero un notevole successo commerciale nelle derivazioni a stampa pubblicate in serie da diversi partner della società di Wolff, principalmente di Johann Friedrich Probst ( 1719 o 1721-1781 ) , e poi da suo fratello Georg Balthasar Probst ( 1732-1801). Acquaforte e bulino, stampati su due fogli uniti al centro, finemnete colorata a mano, tracce di colla al verso e alcuni restauri perfettamente eseguiti, con parziale perdita di impressione in alcuni punti della legenda, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Baeutiful panoramic view of Milan designed by Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776) and publshed by Johann Friedrich Probst. Title in a banderol at the head, flanked on the right by the crowned city arms in a cartouche. Italian key to 63 numbered at bottom. A spectacular panoramic view of Milan designed by Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776). With the title in a banderol at the head, flanked on the right by the crowned city arms in a cartouche. With a German key to 63 numbered buildings, etc. Werner (1690-1776) was born in Silesia. During his youth he led a life of adventure, working as a military engineer and cartographer, travelling about as a quack doctor, working as an operator with a theatre in Prague and translating librettos for a group of wandering comedians. But after his marriage in 1718 he began a new life and concentrated on developing his undeniable artistic and cartographic talents. These skills brought him into contact with several leading art dealers and map publishers in Augsburg, most importantly the heirs of Jeremias Wolff (1663-1724). He began his series of large city views for Wolff's heirs in 1729, when he returned to Augsburg after a European tour, and they commissioned further European tours in the 1730?s to make delineations of the important cities and the architecture of the surrounding countryside. These designs and impressions were published in series by several partners of the Wolff firm, primarily by Johann Friedrich Probst (1719 or 1721-1781), and later by his brother Georg Balthasar Probst (1732-1801). Etching and engraving, printed on two sheets joined at the center, with fine later hand colour, a few losses of paper replaced and some expert repairs, generally in good condition.

Le stampe favorirono una grande diffusione alle tele di Maggiotto, e ne testimoniano il favore riscontrato presso una vasta fascia del mercato collezionistico del tempo."

        Les ports de France

      1760 - VERNET, Claude Joseph, dit Joseph (1714-1789). Les ports de France.1760-1780 Ensemble de 17 estampes encadrées, tirées de la célèbre suite des ports de France de Claude Joseph Vernet, et réalisées à l’eau-forte et au burin par Charles-Nicolas Cochin et Jean- Philippe Le Bas. La série comprend trois vues de Toulon, deux de Marseille, Bordeaux et Bayonne, et une de Bandol, Antibes, Sète, Rochefort, La Rochelle, Dieppe, Le Havre et Rouen. Les planches n°1 et 6 (Toulon) ne sont pas numérotées et portent un titre manuscrit à l’encre. Au début des années 1750, Abel François Poisson, futur Marquis de Marigny, est nommé sur les recommandations de sa sœur, la Marquise de Pompadour alors maîtresse de Louis XV, Directeur des bâtiments, jardins, arts, académies et manufactures royales. Sa formation auprès de grands artistes en Italie et en France aura d’importantes répercussions sur l’évolution des arts et du goût en France. En 1753, Marigny passa commande de 24 tableaux de ports de France à Claude Joseph Vernet, dit Joseph Vernet (1714-1789) ;  seuls 15 furent réalisés. Vernet, qui avait étudié la peinture en Italie où il avait acquis une réputation qui dépassait déjà les frontières, donna toute la mesure de son talent dans ces tableaux, véritables témoignages de la vie dans les ports. En 1763, son quinzième tableau achevé (port de Dieppe), il interrompit la série, faute de finances suffisantes. Le succès de la série des ports de France est tel qu’en 1758, les graveurs Charles-Nicolas COCHIN (1715-1790) et Jacques-Philippe LEBAS (1707-1783) demandent au marquis de Marigny l’autorisation de les reproduire à l’eau-forte et au burin [ ] Les délais et la complexité de réalisation d’un tel projet conduisent les deux graveurs à envisager une souscription. Les trois premières livraisons s’enchainent entre 1760 et 1764, et la quatrième livraison a lieu en 1767. Or les graveurs s’étaient engagés auprès des souscripteurs à publier 20 planches. Palliant à Vernet, une vue du Havre dessinée par Cochin et gravée par Lebas paraît en 1780, ainsi qu’une vue de Rouen due à Basan. Au total, 17 planches sont réalisées, mais la série d’estampes ne sera jamais achevée. Réduite environ au tiers de la surface du tableau, les estampes reproduisent les toiles sans inversion. Les estampes remportent un franc succès puisque dès 1812, la « Collection gravée des ports de Vernet » est devenue extrêmement rare, et le petit nombre d’exemplaires qui circule dans le commerce sont d’un prix auquel ne peuvent atteindre toutes les fortunes. (Musée national de la Marine, Les vues des ports de France, Joseph Vernet.) Jean Polak, dans sa Bibliographie maritime française, annonce 18 planches pour la série complète des ports de France. Une deuxième vue de Rouen dessinée par Cochin et gravée par Lebas porte le n°17 (Vue du port et de la ville de Rouen, prise de la pointe de l'Isle de La Croix). Elle est ici manquante.

        Veterum Persarum et Parthorum et Medorum Religionis Historia.:

      Oxford Typographeo Clarendoniano 1760 - Thomas Hyde, Oxford Orientalist and divine, was the first westerner to make a serious study of the Zoroastrian religion. He researched in Greek, Latin and Arabic sources, and made use of the few Zoroastrian texts he could get hold of. Although later scholars have criticised this work it was an admirable pioneering effort, and virtually the only book on old Iranian religions available in the eighteenth century. The first edition was published in 1700. The two appendices to this second edition are: Magorum Liber Sad-der, Zoroastris Praecepta et Canones Continens: In usum Ecclesiae Magorum & Fidelium eorum omnium, and, Historiae Religionis Veterum Persarum Appendix, Continens Aliquot Tractatiunculas seu Dissertationes, in quibus paulo uberius tranctatur Pauca quaedam, tantum leviter tacta in superiore Opere.

        Rotterdam panorama - naar Werner.

      ?ROTTERDAM??. Kopergravure vervaardigd door Jeremias Wolff naar een ontwerp van Friedrich Bernhard Werner uitgegeven door Johann Friederich Probst rond 1760, later met de hand gekleurd. afm (prent) 35 x 102 cm, met onder het stadsprofiel een legenda met landmarks.Aan het einde van de zeventiende eeuw verloor de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden langzamerhand haar rol als economische supermogendheid aan Engeland. In die tijd werden maar weinig Nederlandse stadsgezichten gemaakt. Het waren de buitenlandse uitgeverijen die toen stad (en provincie) vastlegden. Het Beierse Augsburg was met een aantal zeer actieve uitgeverijen ??Europas Bilderfabrik?. De belangrijkste uitgeverij aldaar was die van Jeremias Wolff (1663-1774) wiens zaak werd overgenomen door zijn schoonzoon Johann Balthasar Probst, vervolgens overging in de handen van Georg Bathasar Probst en later weer in handen kwam van diens zonen Georg Balthasar Probst II en Johann Friedrich Probst. Tot 1802 blijft het bedrijf in handen van de familie Probst. De firma modelleerde ook Nederlandse stadsgezichten naar Beiers voorbeeld, waarin de kerktorens uivormige bekroningen kregen.Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776) had een kleurrijke loopbaan voordat hij als freelance kunstenaar voor de uitgeverijen van Augsburg ging werken. Zo was hij ondermeer soldaat, 'Wunderdoktor', vertaler van opera?s en landmeter. Hij reisde veel door Polen, Pruisen, Pommern, Duitsland, Itali?, Frankrijk en Nederland om ontwerpen te maken voor zijn prenten van steden, kerken, paleizen en kastelen.prijs: ?3.850,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

He himself however, is a little bit vague and seems to mix them" (Ferguson 1, 169). Das Vorwort des ersten Bandes ist datiert mit 1757. Johann Heinrich starb bereits 1750.
