        Contes et Nouvelles en Vers Two volumes

      1762. LA FONTAINE, Jean de. Contes et nouvelles en vers. Two volumes. xiv, [2], 268, [2], 8; [2], viii, [2], 306, [4], [9]-16 pp. Illustrated with 1 engraved portrait of La Fontaine by Fiquet after Rigault, 1 engraved portrait of Eisen by Fiquet after Vispré, four engraved vignettes and 53 culs-de-lampe by Choffard, and 80 full-page engraved plates after Eisen. 8vo., 183 x 117 mm, bound in contemporary French polished beige calf, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Amsterdam [i.e. Paris], 1762. |~||~||~||~| The celebrated Fermiers Généraux edition of La Fontaine, planned as an organic whole by the Chevalier d'Agincourt, who was allowed unlimited resources by the association of fermiers which formed the first financial company in the kingdom. The result of this lavish production was "le chef d'oeuvre d'Eisen" (Cohen). The Fermiers Généraux edition of the Contes de La Fontaine contains eighty elegant engravings after Eisen that are recognized as the liveliest and most adroit that he ever drew. Through his precise visual imagination and his stylistic verve, Eisen reveals the very heart of La Fontaine's lusty stories -- the practical jokes, the intrigue, and the amourous rendezvous. His engraved illustrations are complimented by Choffard's tailpieces in which lively animal genre scenes provide a witty commentary to the plates. On the Fermier Généraux edition, Lewine writes: "It must be pronounced Eisen and Choffard's masterpiece, as in the illustration of both the beautiful and the elegant are combined." Occasional light foxing or spotting; spines with almost invisible repairs; overall in fine condition. PROVENANCE: Filson Lee with ex-libris. Salomons 116-120 ("Eisen's plates rank among his best work"). Cohen-De Ricci 558-571. Reynaud, Notes supplémentaires 285. Rochambeau, La Fontaine 79. Lewine 278-280. Sander 1044. Ray 26.

        Amélie, roman de Mr Fiedling [sic, corrected in titles of parts 2 and 3], Traduit de l’Anglois Par Mdme Riccoboni

      Paris: 1762. 3 vols. in one, 12mo (162 x 97 mm). [2] ll., 176 pp.; [2] ll., 208 pp.; [2] ll., 271 pp. Fine. Contemporary French mottled calf, flat spine gilt with red morocco lettering piece, edges stained red (foot of spine slightly chipped).*** FIRST EDITION of Mme. Riccoboni?'s free adaptation of Fielding?'s novel. Riccoboni was among the pioneering 18th-century female novelists who earned a living from their writing. Published the same year as a more faithful French translation, by Mme. de Pisieux, Riccoboni's abridged and altered version omitted Fielding's " longueurs" (Gay), "cleaned up" his prose, turned commoners into aristocrats, magnified the importance of financial transactions, interjected an omniscient narrator where Fielding had let the characters reveal themselves through their actions, and altered the fundamental nature of several characters, including the heroine's. Although a passionate Anglophile, English humour was lost on Riccoboni; she therefore removed all traces of it from her version, which, according to Crosby, had been undertaken as an exercise to improve her English. Her scattered notes were cobbled together rather hastily for publication, Humblot, an excellent printer and publisher, having proposed that she tighten her production schedule in an attempt to foible the printers of illegal contrefaçons which were adversely affecting her income. Amélie was less successful than some of Riccoboni's other novels, "an infallible proof being the small number of counterfeit editions" (Crosby, p. 46). It nonetheless provided "ready consolation" for those female readers (English as well as French) who were "repelled by Fielding's lack of refinement…" (Streeter, p. 146).

Con él contó Fernando VI para la fundación del Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid en 1755, transladando el primitivo jardín de Aranjuez, fundado por Felipe II, a un emplazamiento en el soto de Migas Calientes, del que fue nombrado Primer Catedrático (con Juan Minuart como Segundo Catedrático) y donde empezó la enseñanza de la Botánica. En 1762 emprendió la publicación de su «Flora española o historia de las plantas que se crían en España», con criterios tournefortianos (lo que le llevó a enfrentarse a Carlos Linneo), de la que sólo alcanzó a publicar cuatro volúmenes y que quedó inconclusa a su muerte y terminada por Casimiro Gómez Ortega, uno de sus sucesores y responsable del traslado del Real Jardín desde Migas Calientes a su actual localización junto al Museo del Prado de Madrid.

        The General View of Athens"

      Greece: London John Haberkorn. 1762. Large copper engraved panoramic view of Athens from the first volume of Stuart & Revett's "Antiquities of Athens". engraved by James Basire. This magnificent view engraved from sketches made by James Stuart during his and Nicholas Revett's surjourn in Athens 1751-55. The large panoramic view shows the two columns forming a gateway, one stands today in Kolonaki Square whilst the pediment and the other column rest nearby in the Botanic Gardens. Around the gate are a group of Ottoman huntsmen with their hounds, horses and attendants; in the mid ground stands the Acropolis with the buildings of the Plaka on its slopes; the Thesion and the Temple of Zeus Olympus nearby. In the text Stuart tells us that the view is taken from the foot of Mount Anchesmus." a general view of Athens and the adjacent Country with the Saronic Gulf, the islands of Salamis and Ægina and the shores of the Peloponnesus from Corinth to Cape Scylleum.... The two columns on the fore ground are the Remains of a Building, called by Wheler and Spon the Aquaduct of Hadrian , tho' it seems to be the Front of a Reservoir, that supplied apart of Athens with Water." Dark impression; ight toning mainly to blank margins; centrefold; side margins cut short to plate mark by the binder. "The Antiquities of Athens. Measured and Delineated by James Stuart. F. R. S and F. S. A and Nicholas Revett, Painters And Architects. " was published in 5 volumes between 1762 and 1830. "But Athens the Mother of elegance and politeness, whose magnificence scarce yielded to that of Rome, and who for the beauties of a correct style must be allowed to surpass her; has been almost entirely neglected. So that unless exact copies of them be speedily made, all her beauteous Fabricks, her Temples, her Palaces, now in ruins, will drop into Oblivion; and Posterity will have to reproach us, that we have not left them a tolerable Idea of what was so excellent, and so much deserved our attention; but that we have suffered the perfection of an Art to perish, when it was perhaps in our power to have retrieved it. . . . We have therefore resolved to make a journey to Athens; and to publish at our return, such Remains of that famous City as we may be permitted to copy, and that appear to merit our attention. . . . " Proposals for publishing an accurate description of the Antiquities of Athens (1748) In the preface to volume 1 Stuart states that there have already been many works on the ancient edifices of Rome but that: "altho' the World is enriched with Collections of this sort already published, we thought it would be a Work not unacceptable to the lovers of Architecture, if we added to those Collections some Examples drawn from the Antiquities of Greece; and we were confirmed in our opinion by this consideration principally, that as Greece was the great Mistress of the Arts, and Rome, in this respect, no more than her disciple, it may be presumed, all the most admired Buildings which adorned that Imperial City, were but imitations of Grecian Originals, ". The first volume of "The Antiquities of Athens" was published in 1762 and was a huge success gaining Stuart the soubriquet "Athenian Stuart". Revett perhaps peeved by the acclaim received by his partner, or annoyed at the delay in publication, which had allowed Julien-David Le Roy to pre-empt them in 1758. with his "Les Ruines and plus Beaux Monuments de la Gréce. " gave up his rights to the succeeding volumes. Their partnership had dissolved in 1759, but Stuart eventually was given permission to use those drawings for his second volume, which was devoted to the Acropolis, including the Parthenon, Erechtheion and Propylaea. It was published posthumously in 1789, a year after Stuart's death (the title page actually bears the date 1787 and the volume may have been published in January 1790). Here, the descriptions are more brief, in part because Stuart did not deign to respond to Le Roy's criticism that: "The ruins of antiquity may be looked at in widely differing ways. In publishing them, one may undertake no more than a slavish record of their dimensions; and the most scrupulous accuracy in doing so is, in Mr. Stuart's opinion, almost the only merit that a book of this kind can possess. My journey, I confess, was undertaken with very different ends in view; I would never have traveled to Greece simply to observe the relations of the buildings and their parts with the subdivisions of our foot. Such a claim to fame I gladly resign to anyone who desires it and aspires to nothing higher. . . . As for the vast quantity of plates with which works of the present kind are sometimes laden, these often convey nothing to the public beyond the industry or the want of taste of those who have measured the monuments" (Preface, Vol. I, 2nd edition 1770). He continued :"In the views that I present, the ruins occupy a far greater part of the picture than in those of Mr. Stuart; they make a livelier impression on the viewer and fill his mind with all the admiration that strikes us when we see the monuments themselves" (Preface, Vol. I). Stuart had accused Le Roy of plagarism, and inaccuracies in his preface to the first volume and so the acrimonious exchange continued between the two, to the detriment and benefit of both works. : Stuart must have such a image in mind when he proclaimed in the Preface to his own volume that "The Views were all finished on the spot; and in these, preferring Truth to every other consideration, I have taken none of those Liberties with which Painters are apt to indulge themselves, from a desire of rendering their representations of Places more agreeable to the Eye and better Pictures. Not an Object is here embellished by strokes of Fancy, nor is the situation of any one of them changed. . . " (p. viii). A third volume (which included the Temple of Hephaestus, Hadrian's Arch, and Temple of Olympian Zeus) was published in 1794 and, from notes and drawings acquired from Stuart's daughter, a fourth volume in 1816, prompted, no doubt, by the British Museum's purchase of the Elgin marbles that year and the debate as to whether they were truly Periclean or merely Roman restorations. In 1830, the year that Greece was declared an independent monarchy, there was a final volume with the same title but written by a new generation of British architects. Smaller abridged copies also were made available as guides for travelers. Blackmer/Navari: 1618; BAL RIBA :3183. Greece Athens Panorama of Athens Kolonaki Acropolis

Hector Theophilus Cramahé (baptized Théophile-Hector de Cramahé), lieutenant-governor of Quebec (1771-82), army officer, civil secretary to governors James Murray, Guy Carleton, and Frederick Haldimand, judge, lieutenant governor of the province of Quebec, and titular lieutenant governor of Detroit. Cramahé arrived at Quebec in June 1759 and was to remain there more than 22 years, during which he ended the purely military phase of his career. Quoted from DCB online James Murray was one of General James Wolfe's three brigadiers in the British expedition against Quebec in 1759 and the Governor of Canada from 1760 to 1766. General James Murray In October 1760, became military governor of the district of Quebec and became the first civil governor of the Province of Quebec in 1764. As governor he was sympathetic to the French-Canadians, favouring them over British merchants who came to settle in the wake of the conquest. He allowed the continuance of French civil law because at the time the French outnumbered the British 25:1 and he needed to be careful not to incite discontent or rebellion. The dissatisfaction of British settlers led to his recall in 1766 (although he remained governor in name until 1768), but his precedents were preserved in the Quebec Act of 1774. Wikipedia.

Célèbre médecin de son époque (et certainement le plus lu de son époque) et se définissant lui-même comme un Hippocrates orthodoxe, Baillou (1538-1616) fut un grand épidémiologiste et spécialiste des pathologies infectieuses. On lui doit la différenciation de la variole et de la rougeole, la descirption de la coqueluche, et l'invention du terme de rhumatisme ; mais on doit signaler son remarquable intérêt à cette époque pour les maladies mentales, et on trouvera dans cet ouvrage de nombreux passages sur la frénésie, la manie et la mélancolie, ainsi que sur l'amour insane (érotomanie). Il croit à l'étroite interdépendance entre le soma et la psyché. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Beschouwing der wonderen Gods, in de minst geachte schepzelen. Of Nederlandsche Insecten, naar hunne aanmerkelijke huishouding, verwonderlijke gedaantewisseling en andere wetenswaardige bijzonderheden ...

      Amsterdam, J.C. Sepp, 1762-1860. 8 volumes. 4to (250 x 190mm). With 8 hand-coloured engraved frontispieces and 400 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary uniform half calf, spines with gilt lettered label, marbled sides (some minor restorations to spines). A complete set of the first series. "First series started by Christiaan Andreas Sepp together with his son Jan Christiaan (1739-1811) published in issues and in the format after the model chosen by Roesel von Rosenhof; Sepp followed his own path for the descriptions of butterflies and their illustrations. It has become the most important work on Dutch lepidoptera" (Landwehr 182). The author of the second series (1860-1900) was Snellen van Vollenhoven and of the final third series (1905-1928) Brants. Towards the end of the 7th volume the plates become lithographs./"Christiaan Sepp assured his public that the publishing house of Sepp would not copy any other author. When he made this assurance he had in mind the successful work published in Germany by Roesel von Rosenhof which went to several editions, including a Dutch edition. The Sepp house had high standards and refused to publish any plates that they did not think were perfectly finished, employing only the best artists; the Dutch printing houses were at this time the leaders for publishing fine colour works. The plates of this book are finely engraved and perfectly coloured. The book was once described as one of the most beautiful books ever published on Lepidoptera. When starting the work, the intention was to include all insects, but it became a work on Lepidoptera only. After the death of his father in 1775, Jan Christiaan continued the work, using many descriptions from his own personal observations. He started to collect insects and embarked on many collecting expeditions. He built a very fine insect collection and was an excellent entomologist, in addition to his skills as an artist. Jan Christiaan had inherited his father's skill as an artist and engraver, but his own son Jan (1778-1853), who helped him and continued the series, although a good artist, had not the same talent" (P. Gilbert. Butterfly Collectors and Painters p. 70). The Sepp family were the publishers as well as the authors of the present work. They published some major natural history works. The here offered first series is the most attractive part of the whole work./Added to the work is a portfolio with 35 hand-coloured proof-plates for the second series. Most are signed by van Vollenhoven and approved 'goedgekeurd'.//Nissen ZBI, 3808; Horn & Schenkling 20145; Landwehr 182.
