        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.

        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. Vasi.et 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.

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. Sheet size: 18 7/8 x 26 5/8 inches.

        Veduta della Fontana dell'Acqua Felice a Termini Les plus beaux édifices de Rome moderne, ou Recueil des plus belles vues des principales églises, places, palais, fontaines, &c. Rome:

      Rome. 1762 - Copper engraving. Hand coloured Very good condition. Large margins Size: 39 x 54 cm A magnificent view of the Fountain of Aqua Felice, also known as the fountain of Moses. Pope Sixtus V had the fountain built by the remains of the Baths of Diocletion. Once set into place, though, the statue turned out quite stout and disproportionate; the people of Rome, accustomed to much more refined works of art, strongly criticized it and laughed upon what they called the 'ridiculous Moses'.

        Du Contract Social; ou Principes Du Droit Politique

      Par J.J. Rousseau, Citoyen de Geneve. A Amsterdam, chez Marc-Michel Rey, 1762. - First 12mo edition, issued only several weeks after the first issue. 12mo, full black 19th century calf, red speckled page edges; spine faded to brown, raised bands. Some light dust soiling to pages edges, minor rubbing, spine faded to brown. Previous ownership writing in pencil to inside front endpapers, as well as a small previous bookseller description affixed to front endpaper, and a few minor stray pencil marks. In this edition, the publisher introduced the original vignette with lady liberty standing (not seated), which Rousseau decided should be removed from the title page. The statement on marriage has also been removed. Approximately only 2500 copies of this issue were printed. The publishing history of the Contract Social is a complicated one. When the press was set up and the first copies already printed, Rousseau received a proof of the title-page which he disliked. He had also decided to tone down his note on marriage where he criticised the monopoly of the Catholic clergy. He therefore instructed his publisher, Rey, to change the title-page and the final section. Printing and the Mind of Man 207.

      [Wohl Meiningen], 10. VIII. 1762. - Zeichentusche auf Papier (Blattmaß 485:295 mm). Unter Passepartout (615:430 mm). Die schöne Dedikationszeichnung zeigt Apoll, auf eine geborstene Schrifttafel weisend. Auf derselben findet sich ein 21zeiliges kalligraphiertes Festgedicht: "Apollo spielt, die Gegend hört | Den Wunderklang der reinen Leyer; | Mir ist kein gleiches Glück beschert, | Ich lodre nicht in gleichem Feuer, | Nur Ehrfurcht ist's und wahre Treue | Die ich der Grosen Fürstin weyhe | [.]". Der Steinblock, auf dem Apolls Leier ruht, trägt außerdem eine 15zlg. Widmung "Der Durchlauchtigsten Fürstin und Frau, Frau Charlotten Amalien, Herzogin zu Sachsen, Jülich, Cleve und Berg auch Engern und Westphalen, Landgräfin zu Thüringen, Marggräfin zu Meissen, gefürsteten Gräfin zu Henneberg, Gräfin zu der Marck und Ravensberg, Frau zu Ravenstein, gebornen Landgräfin zu Hessen, Fürstin zu Hersfeld, Gräfin zu Katzenelnbogen, Diez, Ziegenhain, Nidda, Schaumburg und Hanau, auch Sayn und Witgenstein [.]"; am Schluß der Widmung vom Gratulanten Heinrich David Trinks in millimeterhoher Schrift signiert. Das Motiv von etwas Pflanzenstaffage eingerahmt; im Hintergrund ein Monopteros. Außerhalb des Rahmens vom sonst nicht nachgewiesenen Zeichner signiert: "Calamo delin." (nicht im AKL). - Charlotte Amalie (1730-1801) war die Tochter des Landgrafen Karl I. von Hessen-Philippsthal und seiner Gemahlin Christine von Sachsen-Eisenach. 1750 heiratete sie 20jährig den 43 Jahre älteren Herzog Anton Ulrich von Sachsen-Meiningen, dem sie in der verbleibenden Zeitspanne seines Lebens noch acht Kinder schenkte. 1763 übernahm sie als Vormund ihrer Söhne die Regentschaft im Herzogtum, das finanziell und wirtschaftlich völlig ruiniert war. Aufgrund ihrer straffen Reformen und Sparmaßnahmen, ihres wirtschaftlichen Wiederaufbaus und ihrer Förderung des geistigen Lebens gilt sie als "Retterin des Herzogtums". Die beliebte und volksverbundene Herzogin wurde nicht in der Fürstengruft, sondern gemäß ihrem Wunsch auf dem städtischen Friedhof begraben. - Hübsche Zeichnung als Jubiläumsgabe, womöglich auch Vorzeichnung für einen Kupferstich.

        Profecia politica, verificada en lo que està sucediendo a los Portugueses por su ciega aficion a los Ingleses. Hecho luego despues del Terremoto del año de mil setecientos cinquenta y cinco.

      Madrid, Imprenta de la Gaceta, 1762. - Woodcut vignette on title page. Woodcut tailpieces. (1 l.), cxxvi pp. 4°, later limp vellum. Some foxing. On the whole in very good condition. Small heraldic booktag on front free endleaf recto, with motto "Et nunc et semper." ---- FIRST EDITION, apparently first issue, of this little known but extremely important work on political economics, with discussions of Brazilian gold mines (Chapters VII and XII-XIII), the pernicious influence of the English, Luso-Brazilian trade, industry and commerce, as well as on Portugal's government, agriculture, and military and naval strength. On pages cxv-cxxvi is the @Relacion historica del terremoto de Lisboa, describing the fatalities and damage of the 1755 earthquake.In 1762 the same sheets were issued by the same printer, but with a different and much more descriptive title: @Discurso politico sobre las ventajas que pueden sacar los Portugueses de sus ultimas desgracias, separandose de los Ingleses; y en el que se descubren los medios de que há usado la Inglaterra para arruinar à Portugal. Siguese à este Discurso una Relacion historica del terremoto de Lisboa de primero de Noviembre de 1755, con una Relacion por menor de la pèrdida de hombres, iglesias, palacios, conventos, casas, muebles, mercaderìas, diamantes, &c. Other editions (with the title @Profecia politica) appeared at Seville, 1762 and Calatayud, 1762 ("reimpresso del exemplar de Madrid"). Despite the fact that so many editions appeared in 1762, the work is extremely rare and little known.During the Peninsular War the work appeared several more times (under the title @Profecia politica): Madrid, 1808 and Mexico, 1808, and a Portuguese translation of Lisbon, 1808 (for which see Ayres Magalhães de Sepulveda, @Diccionario bibliográfico da Guerra Peninsular III, 115).
