        Veduta degl'avanzi del sepolcro della famiglia Plauzia sulla via Tiburtina vicino al ponte Lugano due miglia.

      Paris 1761 - This print was published between 1806-1833. From the series " Vedute di Roma"Hind 83 (Firmin-Didot Paris edition 3rd state)John Wilton-Ely 216"View of the remains of the Tomb of the Plaitii on the Via Tiburtina. Near the Ponte Lugano, two miles distant from Tivoli" (John Wilton-Ely)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. 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, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired b

      London: Printed for John Bowles, Robert Sayer, Thomas Jefferys, Carington Bowles and Henry Parker, [nd, but ca. 1761]. - Copper engraving by P.C. Canot after a painting by Pugh from a design by Pownall. Sheet size: 14 1/4 x 20 3/8 inches. Expert repairs, trimmed to the plate mark. Matted. An important image of colonial Boston from the famous and very rare SCENOGRAPHIA AMERICANA series. Pownall's drawing of Boston, here ably engraved by Peter Charles Canot (1710-77), was one of six prints in the SCENOGRAPHIA AMERICANA series that were based on Pownall's sketches. This particular image was worked up into a painting by Pugh, and it was from this that the engraving was made by Canot. The complete SCENOGRAPHIA AMERICANA (with a total of twenty-eight plates) is a legendary rarity: no copies are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty years. Individual prints are therefore all that the collector can hope for, and the present image is one of the most important. Governor Thomas Pownall, one of the few sympathetic colonial governors in North America, was also an artist, author, and mapmaker. He first came to America as secretary of the governor of New York, Sir Danvers Osborn, in 1753, who committed suicide a few days after arriving. Pownall stayed on in America and became deeply involved in colonial politics during these critical years (the French and Indian War). He contributed to and supported Pitt's strategy in the war against the French and was appointed governor of Massachusetts, replacing Shirley, in August 1757. He was at first very popular, energetically raising troops and prosecuting the war with the French; but political rivalry and objections to his own rather free lifestyle and manners led to his retirement from the position at his own request, and he returned to England in 1760. He remained a staunch supporter of the American causes as they arose in the 1760s. Interestingly, he was very much in favor of emancipation of the slaves in America. Pownall was a long-time friend of Benjamin Franklin. DEÁK, PICTURING AMERICA 106.

      London: J. Buckland -, 1761 - Gibbons (1720-1785), an Independent minister, wrote an important biography of Issac Watts, kept an entertaining diary of his active London life, and wrote poetry and hymns. Like the present volume, many of his publications were funeral sermons - this one preached on the death of the Reverend Samuel Davies (1723-1761), a Presbyterian minister from Delaware. Davies was instrumental in the founding of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). He spent eleven months in England raising money to build Nassau-Hall, the first permanent building on campus. Both Davies and Gibbons were prominent dissenters from Anglican orthodoxy and it is likely that they would have met during Davies' fund-raising mission to England. They evidently carried on a correspondence, which Gibbons quotes from in his sermon. Davies served as the fourth president of the college until his early death at 37.

      Lima: Oficina de los Huerphanos, . 1761 - [34],272pp. Several errors in pagination. Small quarto. Contemporary vellum with pigskin ties, lettered on spine. Very minor soiling, but generally quite bright and fresh internally. Near fine. The first edition of this interesting medical work. The work refers to the history and foundation of the Hospital de San Lazaro (founded 1563), which was devoted to "take [in] the leprous who are not slaves." It provides a complete description of the relations between the Church and the Hospital, as well as medical data about leprosy and its spread. Curiously enough, chapter six is dedicated to bullfighting in Peru, presumably due to the fact that bullfighting was a way of financing the Hospital's expenses. Only a handful of copies on OCLC.

        An Unfortunate Mother's Advice to her Absent Daughters; in a Letter to Miss Pennington

      London: Printed by S. Chandler, and sold by W. Bristow and C. Etherington, York,, 1761. Octavo (207 × 120 mm) Newly bound in late eighteenth-century marbled paper wraps. Half-title bound in, signed in the edition on the last leaf. Somewhat browned, but sound. This first edition of three in the same year is decidedly uncommon, ESTC lists just a dozen copies, six of them in the UK. What little is known of Lady Pennington is drawn from the present work, "a curious combination of conduct manual and scandalous memoir" (ODNB). She married Sir Joseph Pennington of Water Hall, Yorkshire, in 1746, and the couple separated some twelve years later for reasons not made entirely clear. It seems that Lady Sarah attributed the rift to her publicly coquettish behaviour, Sir Joseph, backed by eighteenth-century law, denied his wife access to her daughters and attempted to deprive her of a small inheritance, reducing to "the expedient of communicating with her daughters through the highly public form of a published letter … Her defensive tone and language of injured innocence reflect that of scandal memoirists such as Laetitia Pilkington, and like her, Pennington attributes much of her misery to being privately virtuous but publicly coquettish, and thereby leaving herself open to wilful, malicious misconstruction". It is remarkable that in spite of the social disgrace of her separation, and the fact that she published an account of the scandal, she died with a reputation for virtue and injured innocence, rather than that of a sexually fallen woman deserving of such deserts. On her death in 1783 The Gentleman's Magazine, in a prominent example, remarked on her "extraordinary abilities … piety, charity and benevolence, united to that patient and unreserved resignation with which she sustained a series of very severe and uncommon afflictions" (GM, LIII, 2, p. 978).

London: Printed for W. Sandby, 1761. First edition. "Mordant, of whose life nothing is known, makes the usual excuse for issuing his book, though why an excuse should be necessary puzzles me; there was no recent good book on the subject, although Mr. Lawrence had in some measure treated of it before him. Mordant admits that Lawrence was a very able man to have handled the subject in a full and general way and to advantage, but his reflections and observations were too few and concise. Mordant cast his own book in alphabetical form, and includes trees, animals, crops, building, &c., making an effective and useful dictionary for landowner and steward alike. The second volume contains a large number of diverse tables for ready-reckoning areas, timber, board measure, &c., and a comprehensive set of specimen documents like leases, re-leases, and so on."-Fussell, II, p. 51. Fine set of a scarce book, with the signature of "Mr. Lewis Borthwick, 1791" on front paste-down of Vol. I and on first title. .

        Lives of the Admirals, and other eminent British Seamen ; containing their personal histories, and details of all their public services?

      T. Osborne [etc], London 1761 - Four volumes, octavo, with a number of oval portraits of naval figures, and six good folding engraved maps by Thomas Jefferys (Europe, Africa, Madagascar & Zanzibar, Asia, North America, South America); a fine crisp set in a handsome contemporary calf binding, spines gilt in compartments between raised bands, red edges. Naval history. Third edition: a really attractive set of a good early edition of this standard work, a comprehensive naval history of Great Britain first published in the 1740s, which remained in print in various forms until the late 19th century. Campbell was quite admired by Dr. Johnson. He told Boswell that he once drank thirteen bottles of port at a sitting (hard to imagine him standing), and Johnson commented approvingly that 'he has not been in the inside of a church for many years; but he never passes a church without pulling off his hat. This shows that he has good principles.' Most copies of Campbell's Lives were read to bits, to judge by the poor condition usually seen on examples of the book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lives of the Admirals, and other eminent British Seamen ; containing their personal histories, and details of all their public services

      London: T. Osborne [etc], 1761. Four volumes, octavo, with a number of oval portraits of naval figures, and six good folding engraved maps by Thomas Jefferys (Europe, Africa, Madagascar & Zanzibar, Asia, North America, South America); a fine crisp set in a handsome contemporary calf binding, spines gilt in compartments between raised bands, red edges. Naval history. Third edition: a really attractive set of a good early edition of this standard work, a comprehensive naval history of Great Britain first published in the 1740s, which remained in print in various forms until the late 19th century. Campbell was quite admired by Dr. Johnson. He told Boswell that he once drank thirteen bottles of port at a sitting (hard to imagine him standing), and Johnson commented approvingly that 'he has not been in the inside of a church for many years; but he never passes a church without pulling off his hat. This shows that he has good principles.' Most copies of Campbell's Lives were read to bits, to judge by the poor condition usually seen on examples of the book.

        Strive not Tragedy nor Comedy to Engross a Garrick, who to your Noblest Characters does Equal Honour

      Published by R. H. Laurie; 53 Fleet Street, and Bowles & Carver, London 1761 - One of the most famous portraits of the actor David Garrick by Sir Joshua Reynolds. David Garrick (1717-1779) was perhaps the most influential actor in the English theater. He successfully took on all aspects of theatrical production, including actor, manager, playwright, publicist and theatre advocate. He displayed an amazing range by convincingly playing parts in every genre from comedy to tragedy, history to farce. From 1747 until his retirement in 1776, he was the manager of Drury Lane, where he initiated many improvements: he introduced concealed stage lighting, removed spectators from the stage, and cultivated a naturalistic style of acting. Garrick was acutely conscious of the value of pictures as advertisements. He sat for every painter of note, many of whom are now little more than names. He was painted in oils and in watercolours, drawn in pencil and in pastels, modelled in wax and in terracotta; his likeness even appeared on medals, Wedgewood china, and playing-cards. This portrait by his friend Reynolds demonstrates in a mildly humorous way the actor's talents and character; posed between Tragedy and Comedy Garrick is depicted the master of both. Garrick's broad smile, and Tragedy's melodramatic stance, note the dagger at her waist, favor Comedy. Reynolds' painting was a huge public success and inspired many prints and paintings, pirated prints of the image even made their way to the streets of Paris. The popularity of this image is a testimony to Garrick's fame and to Reynolds' talent. (University of Florida website, Penny) An interesting derivative of this scene is Shakespeare Nursed by Tragedy and Comedy , a beautiful stipple engraving based on a painting by Romney.
