        An East View of Montreal, in Canada

      London: printed for John [....], Robert Sayer, Thos. Jeffereys, Carington Bowles, [November 1762]. Engraving by P. Canot, after Patten. Titled in French and English. Expert restoration, with occasional slight loss to lettering. Sheet size: 13 3/4 x 20 3/8 inches. A famous print "considered to be the first print of Montreal after its capture in 1760" (Spendlove) Spendlove described this print as "very rare", he noted that the image "was drawn by Thomas Patten, a British officer who accompanied General Amherst's expedition for the capture of Montreal in 1760. It was engraved by P. Canot ... This fine and rare print formed part of the Scenographia Americana. It is an excellent example of balanced composition, and shows the small walled city of Montreal with three ships and some small craft in the harbour. It is considered to be the first print of Montreal after its capture in 1760 by General Amherst. Canot was an able engraver, and his rendition on copper of Patten's small water-colour was a good one ... Patten was as much of a military draughtsman as an artist, like most of the British soldier-artists, and his work is characterized by extreme accuracy and strength of line" (op. cit. p.13) Jefferys Catalogue of the Sigmund Samuel Collection (1948) 54; Spendlove The Face of Early Canada (1958) p.13

        Umi no Sachi [trans.: Wealth (or Boon) of the Sea]

      90 finely color-printed woodcuts, some heightened with mica (some double-page) by Katsuma Ryusui. 29; 28 folding leaves. Two vols. Large 8vo, orig. patterned wrappers flecked with gold (some worming touching images, skillfully repaired), orig. block-printed title labels on upper covers, stitched as issued. Tokyo: 1762. First edition of this beautiful book, which marks an important advancement in Japanese woodblock color-printing; its significance "cannot be over-estimated, either for artistic or technical accomplishment, in the history of woodblock colour-printing in Japan."-Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, p. 235. This copy has fresh coloring. "Katsuma Ryusui has rarely been given the prominence he warrants for his part in the advancement of woodblock colour-printing...Ryusui, whose family name was Katsuma Yasusada and whose artist names were Ryusui and Shinsen, is known to have lived in Edo and to have been an official in the civil service...He was clearly a man of wide culture, a composer of haiku and an engraver of seals as well as an artist of the book, and it would be wrong to think of him as an amateur... "Ryusui really comes into his own in the next book for which he provided pictures, the Umi no Sachi, 'Boon of the Sea'...If there was something experimental and eclectic in the prints for Wakana [1756], Umi no Sachi, published in 1762, impresses us as a well-planned and imaginatively executed undertaking. This is another book of haiku, each page bearing several verses decorated by a design of Ryusui, and the dominant theme is everything that lives and has its being in the sea, a frequent theme in paintings and prints of the Japanese, an island race dependent in large measure on the 'boon of the sea' for their livelihood. The three prefaces and the postscript are by haiku poets, and the writer of one of them, Gonman, explains that Ryusui had been preparing drawings for many years. In the colophon, not only is the block-cutter named [Sekiguchi Jinshiro], but, exceptionally, the colour-printer [Sekiguchi Tokichi] too, indicating the importance attached to the illustrations and the medium by which they had been produced... "The colour-printing is, in fact, exceptionally subtle and generally unobtrusive; in many of the prints there are silvery, veiled tints as if seen through water, and the addition to some of metallic and micaceous dusts gives a lustre and glitter that hints at sparkling wave or stream... "Although the book was not produced in album form, there are no printed borders to the pages, allowing some designs to spread uninterruptedly over the wide area of two opposing pages of large format. Occasionally, Ryusui takes fullest advantage of this feature to portray a single fish, which, solidly printed in one main colour and straddling the pages from margin to margin, gives the impression of being larger than life, like the bonito. Elsewhere, it is more often a matter of understatement. The two fugu have cadaverous colour, and markings that conform to no regular pattern, the blots of pigment spreading outwards on the moist skin; even before one learns that they are poisonous, there is something sinister about the bloated shapes and their sickly pallor... "The group of shells scattered at the lower half of one page are treated with artless simplicity... "The prints are as naturalistic as the medium allowed, details like fish-scales and the antennae of crustaceans are given in hair-fine lines, the delicate silvery touches of mica being illusionistic as well as decorative."-Hillier, op. cit., pp. 237-43. ❧ Brown, Block Printing and Book Illustration in Japan, pp. 57-58 & 124-"excessively rare...containing early and remarkably fine colour-printed work...The drawings are beautifully printed in colours on rich and heavy paper." .

The composers represented include: Joseph Haydn (1732 â€" 1809), a rare 1764 edition of Symphony No 22; Johann Wenzel Anton Stamitz (1717 â€" 1757); Franz Xaver Richter (1709 â€" 1789); Carl Friedrich Abel (1723 â€" 1787); Carl Friedrich Abel (1723 â€" 1787); Johann Christian Bach (1735 â€" 1782); Johann Christian Bach (1735 â€" 1782); Anton Filtz (1733 â€" 1760); Carl Joseph Toeschi (1731 â€" 1788); Franz Joseph Haydn (1732 â€" 1809); Carl

      -1770 1762 - 4to, Each symphony/overture is carefully numbered in ink at the top of each page, giving a total of 84 altogether. There are also some brief contemporary pencilled comments in the Violino Primo part about many symphonies (such as "Good", "Fine", "Difficult") and some are placed in pencilled lists on the rear flyleaves. Engraved titles are present for each work, though for some published as parts of a series the title pages are not present in all parts. [see the full listing for details] Some engraved titles are very elaborate, especially those published by Hummel, half calf, marbled boards, crudely rebacked. It would seem that the sets of parts were initially bought individually and then bound together in part books at a later stage. They would have most probably have been used for music making by amateur musicians. Most of them appear to date from between 1762 and 1770, and the music was contemporary. The composers represented here were all well known and respected as practical musicians â€" holding posts within court or church musical establishments, and not infrequently virtuosi on their chosen instruments. The period during which much of this music was composed and published was one of transition from the older Baroque style of Bach and Handel to the classical era of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Mannheim was one of the most important musical centres, with an impressive and very influential court orchestra. This collection sheds an interesting light on this fascinating period. A detailed listing of contents is available on request. Each part book bears the stamp and signature of Roy Glossop, Ambergate and the date 26/8/1810. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

WITH 18 OFTEN VERY PLEASING ENGRAVED TECHNOLOGICAL PLATES: four in the first work, six in the second, two in the third, five in the fourth, and one in the last. Brunet II, 618-19. Covers with minor worm damage, otherwise VERY FINE, the binding lustrous and scarcely worn, the margins very ample, and the text and plates especially clean, bright, and fresh. These works cover a wide range of topics, from the soft (making chamois leather, dyeing delicate silks, tooling leather with silver and gold) to the hard (working with iron and making anvils). The academicians who prepared the articles for "Arts et Métiers" worked closely with artisans and manufacturers who had first-hand knowledge of the processes described, and the section on dyeing silk demonstrates the necessity of such consultation. In addition to explaining the basic process--which includes the environmentally unsound practice of washing the colored cloth in a river--the author outlines the complicated techniques employed to produce various colors. The pre-treatment and coloring process varied depending on the hue desired--it was far more complicated than just pouring in a bottle of commercial dye at the right moment. Black was especially difficult to get right, and nine pages are devoted to outlining the procedure used by the most prominent workshops to produce a rich, dark black. This is part of the "Description des Arts et Métiers," a series of 75 treatises published in more than 100 parts that, together, formed the outstanding 18th century work on handicrafts. Issued over a period of almost three decades, these works contain often splendid engravings of the industrial contexts of artisans making paper, candles, hats, playing cards, iron, sugar, wool, and many other products. Published at roughly the same time as Diderot's great "L'Encyclopédie," these volumes are larger than those making up that better-known publication, and the cuts here are even more striking that those in the Diderot, which includes some plagiarized illustrations taken from the present series. This ambitious undertaking, sponsored by the Académie Royale des Sciences of Paris, "constituted an effort to present a scientific picture of all the industrial processes employed in France in the 18th century. Since no corresponding survey was carried through in any other country at so early a date and since this one in France anticipated but briefly the industrial changes commonly associated with the phrase, 'the industrial revolution,' these volumes are worthy of particular notice. In a sense, they portray the maxima of skills attained at the end of a social period, the age of the handicraftsman."

[198], [61] leaves. VERY PRETTY CONTEMPORARY CLARET MOROCCO, ELEGANTLY GILT, covers framed with dogtooth roll and fillet border enclosing floral roll, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with repeating rows of a small tool creating a lattice effect, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Cancellans title page with lozenge-and-star printed slip pasted over price at foot of page. Front flyleaf with stenciled ownership: "Hannah Hill / her Book / January 5 / 1775." Gaskell 20, 21; Griffiths, p. 179, no. 8. Three darkened patches and a scattering of tiny worm tracks on upper cover, corners a bit mashed, occasional mild foxing or minor marginal stains, but generally a fine copy, the text fresh and clean, and in a lustrous binding with no significant wear. This is a very attractively bound copy of the fourth and final Baskerville edition of the Book of Common Prayer, and the only one issued in duodecimo format. The Sternhold and Hopkins Psalter, printed the same year and on the same paper, makes a suitable companion. Baskerville (1706-75) began his career as a writing master, then moved on to cutting letters for gravestones. He patented a process for "japanning," a type of veneer that replicated the popular Japanese lacquer work, and ran a successful business in this manufacture for 10 years before following his desire to cut type and print books. In the preface to his Milton (1758), he explained, "Amongst the several mechanic Arts that have engaged my attention, there is no one which I have pursued with so much steadiness and pleasure, as that of Letter-Founding. Having been an early admirer of the beauty of Letters, I became insensibly desirous of contributing to the perfection of them. I formed to my self Ideas of greater accuracy than had yet appeared, and have endeavoured to produce a Sett of Types according to what I conceived to be their true proportion." In addition to innovations in cutting type and making paper, Baskerville was responsible for improvements to printing presses, ink, and paper treatment. The elegant and feminine binding may have been done for Hannah Hill, whose name appears on the flyleaf. It certainly would have made an agreeable accessory for a young lady to carry to church.

The text and illustrations in the four works contained in the present volume explain the process of making playing cards, cardboard, bricks and roofing tiles, and barrels. Playing cards are surprisingly labor intensive, from producing the proper type of paper stock to painting the face cards using a series of stencils for the various colors of the design. Brickmaking was a newer industry in France at that time, and one of growing importance due to the shortage of timber for building. One of the plates illustrates an enormous furnace capable of firing 500,000 bricks at a time, an indication of the demand for the material.

        THE CITIZEN OF THE WORLD; OR LETTERS FROM A CHINESE PHILOSOPHER, RESIDING IN LONDON, TO HIS FRIENDS IN THE EAST

      London: Printed for the Author, and Sold by J. Newberry et al., 1762. First Collected Edition (the state of the text with "v" for "vii" in the Preface). Hardcover. Goldsmith's First Important Work, the Finely Bound Isham Copy. 178 x 108 mm (7 x 4 1/4"). Without the terminal blank in the second volume. Two volumes. First Collected Edition (the state of the text with "v" for "vii" in the Preface). HANDSOME MOTTLED CALF BY RIVIERE & SONS (stamp-signed on verso of front endpapers), covers bordered with triple gilt fillets and roundel cornerpieces, raised bands, spines attractively gilt in compartments featuring broad foliate cornerpieces and an oval sunburst centerpiece in a double-ruled frame with notched corners, maroon and black morocco labels, ornate gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Decorative headpieces. Front of each volume with the bookplates of Edward B. King and of R. H. Isham (see below). Scott, pp. 71-75; Williams, pp. 123-24; Rothschild 1021. Joints slightly flaked, two very small round wormholes in head margin of second volume (the first through most of the text, the second just through last quarter), two lower corners torn off without loss of text, very faint overall browning here and there, a few other trivial faults, but A NEARLY FINE COPY, internally fresh and quite clean, and in solid and very pretty bindings showing little wear. Originally published from 1760 to 1761 in the "Public Ledger" as a series of 123 letters purportedly from a bemused Chinese sage visiting England, and appearing in book form in 1762, this work first brought the young Goldsmith to the attention of the reading public. The book is an amiable satire on English society of the 18th century, with its class-consciousness, artificiality, and preoccupation with money, written with humor and perspicacity. Oliver Goldsmith (1730-74) was Irish born and educated at Dublin, before studying in Edinburgh and Leyden, where he seems to have been granted a medical degree. Unsuccessful as a London physician, Goldsmith turned to a life of miscellaneous writing, churning out books and essays for the publishers. He first met Dr. Johnson in 1761, and they became boon companions. Boswell describes Goldsmith as gauche, hapless, and a prattler, but clearly Johnson found the man amusing and lovable. And he was both talented and popular as a writer. His best-known works, both of them classics, are "She Stoops to Conquer" (a comedy about an awkward fellow who prefers the company of barmaids to ladies) and "The Vicar of Wakefield" (a novel with a hero as mild-mannered, garrulous, and improvident as the author himself). Dickens' novels--with their memorable characterizations, many coincidences of plot, and sympathy for the unfortunate--show the deep influence of Goldsmith. Ours is an attractive association copy. Ralph H. Isham (1890-1955) was best known for his determined pursuit and discovery of Boswell papers that existed at Malahide Castle near Dublin. It was a good thing that our collector started out wealthy, because he spent most of his fortune in purchasing this and related material in the first place, then in buying the rights to publish it, and finally in paying editorial and printing expenses. In order to keep financially afloat, he ended up having to sell, disadvantageously, to Rosenbach a number of original leaves from Boswell's manuscript of the life of Johnson. Finally, in 1949, Isham was able to sell what remained of the Boswell papers to Yale for $450,000. Although his bibliophilic interest had always centered on Boswell's "Life of Johnson," Goldsmith, as Johnson's close friend, would naturally have been a part of Isham's collection.

        THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER. [bound with] STRENHOLD, THOMAS and JOHN HOPKINS. THE WHOLE BOOK OF PSALMS COLLECTED INTO ENGLISH METRE

      Cambridge: J. Baskerville and B. Dod, 1762; Birmingham: John Baskerville, 1762. Hardcover. 171 x 105 mm (6 3/4 x 4 1/8"). [198], [61] leaves. VERY PRETTY CONTEMPORARY CLARET MOROCCO, ELEGANTLY GILT, covers framed with dogtooth roll and fillet border enclosing floral roll, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with repeating rows of a small tool creating a lattice effect, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Cancellans title page with lozenge-and-star printed slip pasted over price at foot of page. Front flyleaf with stenciled ownership: "Hannah Hill / her Book / January 5 / 1775." Gaskell 20, 21; Griffiths, p. 179, no. 8. Three darkened patches and a scattering of tiny worm tracks on upper cover, corners a bit mashed, occasional mild foxing or minor marginal stains, but generally a fine copy, the text fresh and clean, and in a lustrous binding with no significant wear. This is a very attractively bound copy of the fourth and final Baskerville edition of the Book of Common Prayer, and the only one issued in duodecimo format. The Sternhold and Hopkins Psalter, printed the same year and on the same paper, makes a suitable companion. Baskerville (1706-75) began his career as a writing master, then moved on to cutting letters for gravestones. He patented a process for "japanning," a type of veneer that replicated the popular Japanese lacquer work, and ran a successful business in this manufacture for 10 years before following his desire to cut type and print books. In the preface to his Milton (1758), he explained, "Amongst the several mechanic Arts that have engaged my attention, there is no one which I have pursued with so much steadiness and pleasure, as that of Letter-Founding. Having been an early admirer of the beauty of Letters, I became insensibly desirous of contributing to the perfection of them. I formed to my self Ideas of greater accuracy than had yet appeared, and have endeavoured to produce a Sett of Types according to what I conceived to be their true proportion." In addition to innovations in cutting type and making paper, Baskerville was responsible for improvements to printing presses, ink, and paper treatment. The elegant and feminine binding may have been done for Hannah Hill, whose name appears on the flyleaf. It certainly would have made an agreeable accessory for a young lady to carry to church.

        L' Afrique Divisee En Ses Principaux Etats

      Engraved, hand colored, decorative cartouche, ample margins, 43.7 x 30 cm (17 1/2" x 12"). Minor aging and slight browning; otherwise very good, bright and with a strong impression. Janivier was a French geographer that was active in the second half of the 18th century. According to Norwich and Tooley, Janivier produced a series of maps in 1760, and collaborated in an Atlas Moderne in 1762 and 1771.The present map is number 28 from that atlas. This rather handsome engraved map, which has full color, appears to present the cartographic knowledge of Africa in the mid 18th century. The map is fairly accurate, and shows the only settlements in southern Africa, and also features a few Hottentot tribes. The cartouche, which is in the lower left part of the map, shows a few tress, a leopard stalking, and a crocodile near the bottom. Norwich 104. Tooley p. 59.

        The Theory and Practice of Brewing.

      London: Printed by J. Haberkorn, 1762. . First edition, 4to, (iv), vi, xii, 298 pp. Signed on the title verso by the author, outer edge of title laid down, as is the whole of the errata leaf, ink accession number to title and final page, some occasional browning, later armorial bookplate of Alfred Chadwick. Modern half calf, marbled sides. The author owned a brewery in Hampstead and many pubs in the area. Expanding on his "Essay on Brewing" (1758), this work "...demonstrated a clear grasp of basic principles and how these could be profitably applied to the brewing trade [and] described experiments carried out to determine the drying temperatures required to yield malts of different colours and recorded observations on mashing and fermentation temperatures, and those for each stage of winemaking" (ODNB). Although the title verso states "This Book is entered at Stationers Hall, and every Copy is signed by the Author", the majority seem not to have been signed.

        Diderot et D'Alembert Arazzi Gobelins ad alto liccio

      Diderot et D'Alembert 1762 1° Ed - Raccolta di tavole sulle scienze, le arti liberali e le arti meccaniche con le relative spiegazioniLa monumentale Encyclopédie di D. Diderot (1713-84), e di J. B. d?Alembert (1717-83), o Dizionario ragionato delle scienze, delle arti e dei mestieri, pubblicata in Francia, dal 1751 al 1772, è universalmente ritenuta l?espressione più completa del sapere tecnologico, artistico e scientifico dell?illuminismo. La prima dispensa dei volumi che costituiscono la Raccolta delle 3123 tavole dell?Encyclopédie, opera autonoma rispetto al testo, venne pubblicata a Parigi, nel 1762. Il quarto tomo delle tavole uscì nel 1765, il decimo e l?undicesimo nel 1772. Questa raccolta di tavole, opera di un gruppo di incisori fuori del comune, suscita ancora oggi l?ammirazione di quanti vi si accostano. Un posto a sé merita però Louis-Jacques Goussier (1722-1799), fisico, matematico e pittore, che firma 900 tavole, ma che si ritiene autore di almeno due terzi della totalità delle incisioni. A lui, come direttore dell?incisione, si deve l?unità di stile delle tavole, stile che corrispondeva perfettamente allo spirito informatore dell?Encyclopédie. Scriveva infatti Diderot che?la purezza dello stile, la chiarezza e la precisione? erano le ?sole qualità? che ogni parte dell?opera dovesse avere in comune; ?un?occhiata all?oggetto o alla sua rappresentazione ne dice di più che non una pagina scritta? Tutto, nella Raccolta delle tavole, è trasparente, limpido, senza mistero: la magia di queste tavole è quella di far sognare. Le tavole di questo fascicolo, Tapisserie de Haute-lisse des Gobelins, rappresentano gli Arazzi dei Gobelins ad alto liccioLa celebre manifattura parigina di arazzi dei Gobelins, sita nei locali di un?antica tintoria della famiglia Gobelin (donde il nome), e situata sulla riva del fiume Bièvre, nacque nel 1666, sotto l?impulso di Luigi XIV. La Manifattura reale degli arredi della Corona, che, come dice il nome, non doveva produrre solo arazzi, ma mobili, opere di oreficeria e mosaici per le dimore regie, e soprattutto per Versailles, ebbe grande splendore e fama sino alla fine del XVII secolo. Gli arazzi dei Gobelins, spesso vere e proprie opere d?arte, venivano tessuti su telai a mano con fili di seta e lana di vario colore ed erano destinati a rivestire e a ornare le pareti. Venivano prodotti sia con telai verticali detti ?ad alto liccio?, per arazzi di grandi dimensioni, sia con telai orizzontali, detti ?a basso liccio?, più veloci ma in grado di produrre solo arazzi di piccolo formato. Le tavole qui di seguito illustrano la fabbricazione di arazzi ad alto liccio. Nella tav. doppia I, Manifattura reale dei Gobelins: operai al telaio, altri azionano i subbi, uno cerca nel cassone filati di diversi colori, un?operaia dipana le matasse portatele da un bimbo. Nella tav. II, reparto di tessitura ad alto liccio: vedute di un telaio. Nella tav. III, orditorio e bobinatrice. Nella tav. IV, la rastrelliera sulla quale si distribuisce l?ordito. Nella tav. V, la preparazione dei licci. Nella tav. VI, si girano, avvalendosi delle apposite barre, i subbi per tendere l?ordito. Nella tav. doppia VII, il meccanismo illustrato consente di manovrare il subbio senza rischio e di impiegare solo due operai. Nella tav. VIII, arcolai per dipanare lana e seta. Nella tav. IX, un operaio al lavoro, con la spola in mano nella posizione corretta per farla passare tra i fili; in basso, a sinistra, un porta candela con il gancio per attaccarlo alla bottoniera dell?addetto perché possa vedere senza essere disturbato dalla luce e, al centro, un sedile graduabile in altezza. Nella tav. X, passaggi della broche (lo strumento di legno che nella tessitura ad alto liccio funge da navetta). Nella tav. XI, tracciato del disegno e uso del pettine. Nella tav. XII, uso delle pinze edell?ago: un operaio toglie con le pinze dall?arazzo la lanugine del filato (sopra), un altro chiude le aperture fra i diversi colori. Nella tav. XIII, infine, parte di arazzo lavorato a metà vi [Attributes: Soft Cover]
