Lacks rear (blank) end page. 2 owner names etc. to inside rear cover. Pages 1-4 crumpled up with edge loss & a little edge text loss to page 1-2. After a hours on the net. I only found a copy of Vol II only listed in the British Library. So very rare and pre-dates his American edition by many years. From net seems there were 3 volumes printed, but as unable to locate a 3rd volume, presume published separately and maybe 3rd volume not published in the England? The Reverend John Allen was a Calvinist-Baptist theologian, and is most famous as the author of some of the most influential discourses just before the 1776 American Revolution. Though born in Great Britain .He became a minister in Salisbury, a pastor of the Particular Baptist Church in London. Also a bankrupt who was in a debtor's prison for a short time. Dismissed from a post at a Broadstairs congregation "for bad behaviour." , arrested for forgery in 1769. In 1770, Allen wrote the "Spirit of Liberty" , an influential defence of both the Baptist religion, as he was an American sympathizer, Ultimately Allen could not escape his reputation and left for America where he landed in New York, and went to Boston where by 1772 he was invited to preach at the Second Baptist Church. In 1774, Allen moved to New Hampshire where he died in obscurity c1785-1788. He was heralded as "New England's Tom Paine" by historians noting his influence on Revolutionary thinking. The "Oration on the Beauties of Liberty" was initially a sermon Allen preached to the Second Baptist Church in Boston on Dec. 3rd, 1772, which when revised later was printed as a popular pamphlet . The publication "fast becomes the sixth-best-selling pamphlet in the colonies prior to the publication of the Declaration of Independence. There is ref to him publishing the Royal Spiritual Magazine in 1752. But i very much doubt this. Most likely someone miss-dated MDCCLXII . 13 x 21cm Approx [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

His Experiments on Bleaching was first published in Edinburgh in 1756 and later in Dublin in 1771. ODNB notes, "In 1756 Home turned his attention to chemistry and in Experiments on Bleaching recommended that bleachers should use dilute sulphuric acid instead of sour milk. This publication greatly increased the profitability of bleaching and the Honourable Board of Trustees for the Improvement of Manufactures in North Britain paid him £100 and presented him with a gold medal."

      Paris. 1760-1762. - Two volumes. 62; 61 leaves, each with a mounted plate. Images vary in size, either 11 x 16 inches and 8 x 12 inches. Oblong folio. 19th-century cloth, gilt; rebacked in red morocco. Corners repaired. Wear and soiling to boards. Internally clean, colors bright and fresh. Very good. Two large albums containing 123 brightly colored vues d'optique depicting scenes from Paris, Rome, London, and many other locations in Europe. Lettering is typically printed at the top and bottom of the plate, primarily in French, with the letters at the top reading backwards. The letters above the text were deliberately reversed since these prints were designed for viewing in optical machines with a magnifying glass and a reflective mirror, which gave the viewer an illusion of depth and reversed the image. The views are mostly of France, including many scenes from Versailles and the ports of the realm. There are likewise a significant number of views of important landmarks around Rome. Other views show notable locations in the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Poland, and London. A handful of the plates show more unusual locales - Mexico City, Siberia, St. Petersburg, Peking, Cayenne, and French Guiana. Altogether, an impressive collection of these handsome engravings.

        Atlas Geographique contenant la Mappemonde et les quartes parties, avec les differents Etats d'Europe

      Paris: Lattre, 1762. - 16mo., (4 6/8 x 3 inches). 7-page publisher's advertisement at end. "Idee de la Sphere, ou Principes sur la Geographique", by M. Bonne, 1723. Fine engraved hand-coloured title-page. 29 double-page engraved hand-coloured maps (without the frontispiece of the armillory sphere and the two unnumbered maps sometimes found with this edition). Fine contemporary cherry red morocco, each cover finely decorated with a border of triple gilt filets, with a fine gilt lily tool at each inner corner, the smooth spine ruled in six compartment, the second with a black morocco lettering-piece, the others decorated with fine gilt lily tools, all edges gilt. A FINE AND ATTRACTIVE COPY of this beautiful pocket atlas including double-page maps of both hemispheres; maps of the continents, including one each of North and South America; and several detailed maps of east and west Europe, including a six-sheet map of the German Empire. Essentially depicting Europe towards the end of the Seven Years War (1756-1763). With its origins in the French-Indian wars in North America two years earlier, the conflict began in Europe with the French siege of British Minorca and Prussia's invasion of Saxony, and ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763. However the effect of the war was global: it ended France's position as the major colonial power in America, and consequently strengthened Britain's power there and in India. Rizzi-Zannoni was born 1736 in Naples and was renowned from an early age as one of the finest cartographers in Europe. In addition to cartography he worked as an astronomer, surveyor and mathematician. He was the first cartographer to triangulate Poland and helped also in the French and English border survey of America in 1757. While in the service of the Prussian's he was captured by the French at the Battle of Rosbach in early December 1757 and sent to France, where he lived for the next twenty years. In 1781 the Bourbon rulers of Naples made him director of the Topographical Office, one of the first governmental cartographic offices in Europe, where he oversaw the creation of the celebrated and monumental "Geographic Atlas of the Kingdom of Naples", published shortly before his death in 1812. Philipps 633, listing probably by error only 22 maps.

        La Marchande de Canards

      Moyreau, Paris 1762 - A fine composition showing a group of cavalrymen congregating oustide of a duck merchant's cottage. This beautifully coloured print is one of many engravings Jean Moyreau (1690-1762) made of Wouwerman's paintings. Born into a family of Dutch artists in Haarlem in 1619, the prolific draughtsman and painter Philips Wouwerman was primarily renowned for his lively battle and hunting scenes. After an early elementary introduction to the art of painting by his father, Paulus Joostens, he trained with the landscape painter Jan Wynants (1620-1679) and briefly worked in the Hamburg studio of the history painter Everard Decker (d. 1647) around 1638. Wouwerman later returned to Haarlem, where he joined the Guild of St. Luke, which later elected him to the office of vinder in 1646. His elegantly rendered, distinctive works, which are characterized by their luminous colour and detailed, animated treatment of figures and landscape alike, were extremely popular in the seventeenth century as well as the nineteenth century, during which they were zealously collected. In addition to his hunting scenes, Wouwerman's varied and substantial repertoire of subjects included military and battle scenes, landscapes, travellers, animals and genre subjects. Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs , vol 14, p. 723. Hand-coloured engraving on laid paper by Moyreau. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and a bit of mild rippling.

Modern gilt morocco, raised bands, gilt spine, a.e.g. Spine ends bit worn, outer hinges rubbed. Some scattered dust soiling. Else a very good copy. "R.B." were the initials of Robert Burton, the pseudonym for author-publisher Nathaniel Crouch. This account of the exploits of Sir Francis Drake was itself mainly cribbed from a work first published in 1653. Crouch's first edition appeared in 1687. Although styled "sixteenth edition" on the titlepage, that may have been counting from 1653 or, as Kraus suggests, the second and third editions may never have existed. An important work in the Drake legend, it describes the Nombre de Dios voyage of 1572, the circumnavigation of 1575-77, Drake's defeat of the Armada in 1588, and his final American voyages. "A biography of Drake in chap-book all such chap-book publications, copies are seldom found" - Kraus (commenting on the 1695 edition). SABIN 9500 (ref). KRAUS, WORLD ENCOMPASSED 45 (1695 ed).

        Veduta del Ponte Molle sul Tevere due miglia lontan da Roma.

      Rome 1762 - Hind 64 (1st state)John Wilton-Ely 197The watermark is number 35 in John Wilton-Ely page 1161 and is dated between 1761 to the mid 1760'sThis plate is from the series Vedute di Roma. "The 135 plates of the Veduta di Roma, produced individually by Piranesi from the late 1740s until his death some thrity years later, represent almost every phase in his stylistic evolution and reflect his changing intellectual concerns. Throught these particular works, which were spread all over the Continent by means of the Grand Tour, Piranesi was not only to revolutionize the conventional form of the veduta but was to transform the European vision of classical antiquity" (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

        Der bärtige Greis mit einem Stab in der Rechten.

      . Radierung und Aquatinta, 1762, auf Bütten. 12,5:8,9 cm. Auf die Plattenkante geschnitten. Literatur: Andresen 22 II (von II) mit der Adresse: J. B. excud; Nagler 27; Manners/ Williamson (15); Boerner 1979, aus 7; Katalog: Retrospektive Angelika Kauffmann. Hrsg. u. bearb. von B. Baumgärtel. Düsseldorf, Kunstmuseum, 1999, Nr. 8 mit Abb. Es handelt sich hier um die früheste datierte Arbeit, die bereits in Florenz (vielleicht unter Anleitung J.F. Reiffensteins, 1719-1793) entstanden sein dürfte.. Angelika Kauffmann war eine der berühmtesten Malerinnen ihrer Zeit. Bereits als 11jährige galt sie als Wunderkind. Als Tochter des Porträt- und Freskenmalers J.J. Kauffmann (1702-1782), der ihr erster Lehrer war, wurde Kauffmanns zeichnerisches und musikalisches Talent schon im Kindesalter erkannt und gefördert. Die beiden ersten Italienaufenthalte in den Jahren 1754-1757 und 1758-1766 brachten entscheidende künstlerische Impulse sowie die Verbindung zu zahlreichen potenziellen Auftraggebern. 1766 ließ sie sich in England nieder, wo sie zahlreiche Porträtaufträge von Hof und Adel erhielt. Nach der Heirat mit dem Maler A. Zucchi (1726-1795) siedelte sie 1782 nach Rom über, wo sie ebenfalls bald zu einer der gefeiertsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit avancierte. Auch für die deutschen Romreisenden war ihr Atelier eine wichtiger Treffpunkt, insbesondere für den Weimarer Kreis um Goethe, Herder, die sie beide porträtierte, und Herzogin Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar. Neben ihrer Porträttätigkeit betrieb Angelika Kauffmann ebenso erfolgreich die Historienmalerei. So führte sie Aufträge u.a. für Kaiser Joseph II. und für das russische Herrscherhaus aus. Bereits 1762 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia Bologna und 1765 ordentliches Mitglied der Accademia di San Luca zu Rom. Zudem beteiligte sie sich 1768 an der Gründung der Royal Academy; gemeinsam mit Mary Moser (1744-1819), einer der berühmtesten Malerinnen Englands, gehörte sie zu deren einzigen weiblichen Mitgliedern.

Spectacular images recalling the siege and capture of Havana in 1762. A fine pair of views from a series illustrating events during the capture and reduction of Havana by a force under the command of Sir George Pocock (1706-1792). In February 1762 Pocock "was appointed commander-in-chief of 'a secret expedition' . which sailed from Spithead on 5 March . On 26 April it arrived in Martinique, sailed again on 6 May, and . landed . the troops six miles to the eastward of Havana on 7 June . The seige-works were at once commenced. A large body of seamen were put ashore, and 'were extremely useful in landing the cannon and ordnance stores , manning the batteries, making fascines, and supplying the army with water' (Beatson) [these preparations are shown in the first of the present plates]. By the 30th the batteries were ready, and on 1 July opened a heavy fire, supported by three ships of the line, under the immediate command of Captain Hervey of the Dragon [this incident is pictured in the second plate]. The Moro was engaged, but after some six hours, the ships were obliged to haul out of action, two of them - the Cambridge and the Dragon - having sustained heavy loss and much damage . the English batteries gradually subdued the enemy's fire . the Moro was taken by storm on 30 July, and on 13 Aug. the town . surrendered by capitulation. The money value of the prize was enormous. The share of Pocock alone, as naval commander-in-chief, was 122,697l. 10s. 6d." ( DNB ). Dominic Serres 'was born in 1722 at Auch in Gascony, and was educated in the public school there. His parents intended him for the church, but, this not suiting his taste, he ran away from his native town, and made his way on foot into Spain. He there shipped on board a vessel for South America as a common sailor, and eventually became master of a trading vessel to the Havannah, where he was taken prisoner by a British frigate and brought to this country about 1758. After his release he married and lived for a time in Northamptonshire. He had received some instruction in drawing, and commenced life in England as a painter of naval pieces, for which the wars of the period furnished an abundance of subjects. He received some assistance from Charles Brooking, and soon established a position. In 1765 Serres became a member of the Incorporated Society of Artists, and exhibited with them for two years. On the establishment of the Royal Academy in 1768 he was chosen one of the foundation members, and was a constant contributor up to the time of his death. Between 1761 and 1793 he exhibited eight works at the Society of Artists, twenty-one at the Free Society, and 105 at the Royal Academy . Serres was a good linguist. In 1792 he succeeded Wilton as librarian to the academy. He was also appointed marine-painter to George III, but he did not long hold these offices. He died in 1793, and was buried at St. Marylebone Old Church.' ( DNB ). Copper engraving by Mason, after Serres from a drawing made "on the spot". Expert marginal repairs.

Pope Sixtus V had the fountain built by the remains of the Baths of Diocletion.
