        Die drei Damen am Fenster.

      - Radierung, 1764, auf festem Bütten. 11,8:8 cm. Literatur: Engelmann 35. – Sehr guter vollrandiger Abdruck. Provenienz: Sammlung Siegfried Barden, Hamburg, Lugt 218. Chodowiecki mußte nach dem Tod des Vaters eine kaufmännische Lehre beginnen. Nach seinem Umzug nach Berlin 1743 fing er allerdings an für das Kurzwarengeschäft seines Onkels Modeschmuck zu entwerfen und zu zeichnen. Dieser Onkel war es auch, der ihn zu einer künstlerischen Ausbildung ermunterte und ihn durch den Augsburger Künstler J.J. Haid (1704-1767) in Emaillemalerei unterrichten ließ. Mit dieser Technik hatte Chodowiecki dann so großen Erfolg, daß er von weiteren Tätigkeiten im Ladengeschäft befreit wurde und sich 1754 selbständig machen konnte. Seit 1758 ging er zur Radiertechnik über, die in den nächsten Jahren sein Hauptbetätigungsfeld werden und ihm größte Erfolge als Illustrator und Kupferstecher bringen sollte. Die Ölmalerei brachte ihm dagegen kaum öffentliche Anerkennung. 1764 wurde er Mitglied der Berliner Kunstakademie, 1786 erfolgte die Ernennung zu ihrem Sekretär, damit war er für die laufenden Ausstellungen verantwortlich, 1790 wurde er stellvertretender Direktor, ein Jahr später leitender Direktor.

        Stilleben mit einem mit Blumen geschmückten, goldenen Prunkgefäß und reich verzierten Pokal und Schale sowie Obst und Insekten.

      . Deckfarben und Goldbronze, auf festem Velin, rechts unten signiert und datiert "W Hartmann inv. et px .at 61.". 6,9:9,9 cm.. Der Schweizer Künstler Hartmann war nicht nur als Maler, Kupferstecher und Lithograph tätig, sondern auch als Kunstschriftsteller. Seine Ausbildung erhielt er durch seinen Vater, den Landschaftsmaler G. L. Hartmann (1764-1828), durch A.O. Moretto (1773-1833) und schließlich 1816 durch F. Hegi (1774-1850) in Zürich. Bis 1816 lebte er in St. Gallen und malte überwiegend Miniaturen. Anschließend ging er nach München, wo er die Technik des Lithographierens erlernte. 1819 ging er nach Zürich, wo er 1820 durch einen Auftrag des Prinzen Max von Wied für ein Jahr nach Neuwied als Naturalienmaler berufen wurde. 1824-1826 lebte er in Bern und war dort Schüler des Naturalien- und Wappenmalers J.E. Wyss (1782-1837). 1848 gab er ein Werk über Erd- und Süßwasser-Gasteropoden in handkolorierter Lithographie heraus. Ganz der niederländischen Stillebenmalerei des 17. Jahrhunderts verpflichtet, zeigt Hartmann hier eine reiche Palette an Gegenständen, die barocke Vanitas-Symbole zitieren, wie etwa Blumen, die auf die Vergänglichkeit alles Irdischen, oder Insekten, die auf die Sünde verweisen.

Recueil de trois ouvrages de médecine rares et curieux. 1). Edition Originale Cet ouvrage donne la description de la maladie de la "femme Supiot" l'un des plus célèbres cas d'ostéomalacie de l'histoire médicale, resté longtemps comme référence de cette maladie. La Faculté de Médecine de Paris, après avoir autopsié le cadavre de cette femme, conserva son squelette et encore en 1875 Larousse le citait à propos de cette maladie: "On possède à la Faculté de Médecine de Paris le squelette d'une femme qui avait été atteinte d'Ostéomalacie. son corps tout entier avait été déformé par le ramollissement des os.". 1 spectaculaire planche dépliante hors-texte, gravée sur bois, représente la malade en position désarticulée. 2). Edition Originale. Description d'une maladie mystérieuse que l'auteur suppose être un cas particulier de "plique polonaise", dont avait été victime une femme morte à 47 ans. Le développement extraordinaire des ongles qui accompagnait cette affection l'avait fait surnommer "la femme aux ongles". Après l'autopsie pratiquée par l'auteur en présence de plusieurs membre de l'Académie de Médecine, que l'on trouve rapportée à la fin du mémoire, plusieurs parties du corps de cette malade furent conservées dans l'esprit de vin et déposées dans une armoire de la Faculté de Médecine de Paris, avec son histoire. Charles Jacques Saillant (1747-1801) a laissé une description classique des épidémies de grippe intervenues de 1510 à 1780 (cf. Garrison-Morton, 5488). 3). Edition Originale.

        ORDONNANCE CONCERNANT LES FONCTIONS DE LA MARÉCHAUSSÉE [caption title]

      Martinique: Pierre Richard, 1764.. 8pp. Small quarto. Folded sheets. Lightly creased. Near fine. Incredibly early and unrecorded imprint from the island of Martinique, regarding the establishment of a constabulary in Guadeloupe. Passed by the Governor of Guadeloupe (François-Charles de Bourlamaque, who remained in office one year, due to sudden death) and the Intendant (Louis Thomassin Peinier), this ordinance regulates the establishment of a constabulary company in Guadeloupe. Among the thirteen articles, several concern the arrest of fugitive slaves. No copies in the Catalogue Collectif de France or in OCLC. The first recorded printing on the island is by Bradford Swan in 1784, but we have handled one other imprint from 1764 and several from later in the 1760's, and have seen in commerce an imprint from as early as 1762. This is, therefore, among the earliest Caribbean imprints this firm has handled. As with virtually everything to do with early Caribbean imprints, the story of printing on Martinique remains shrouded in mystery. Rare, and perhaps a unique survival.

        Componimenti poetici per l'ingresso solenne alla dignità di proccurato

      1764. BARTOLOZZI, Francesco Componimenti poetici per l'ingresso solenne alla dignità di procuratore di S. Marco per merito di sua eccellenza il signor Lodovico Manin. [85] pp., including engraved allegorical frontispiece, engraved portrait of Lodovico Manin on verso of title-page. Each page within elaborate engraved border, embellished with allegorical figures, engraved head- and tailpieces, allegorical printer's device at end. Folio, 375 x 265 mm bound in contemporary Venetian brocatto paper wrappers. Venice: Nella Stamperia Albrizzi, 1764. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of the apogee of eighteenth-century Venetian commemorative books. "This beautiful publication was presented to Lodovico Manin on the occasion of his taking of office as procurator of St. Marco Basilica in 1764. Lodovico Manin (1726-1802) was the last Doge of the Venetian Republic. Deposed by the French under Napoleon in 1797, the Republic ceased to exist and was ceded to Austria. This ended the unbroken succession of 120 Doges, from the first, Paoluccio Anafesto in 697, and it marked the end of the 1000-year-old Serenissima, the Most Serene Republic of Venice, the longest-surviving continuous republic in western history. "Perhaps most striking of all, the Manin family from the Friuli were untiring in the decoration of palaces, country houses and churches in and around Venice, and they thus won a reputation for nobility of soul through the expenditure of money which was to lead eventually to the election of the futile Lodovico as the last of the Doges" (Haskell, Francis, Patrons and Painters, New Haven: Yale University Press, 1980, p. 251). The Componimenti poetici "contains poems in Manin's honor by members of contemporary Venetian high society. The charming unsigned engravings by Francesco Bartolozzi which adorn the book make it an outstanding example of Venetian graphic art in its final perfection. Bartolozzi designed and engraved expressly for this edition the majority of the Rococo decorative borders, the vignettes, the portraits, and frontispiece" (Robison, Library of Congress, Quarterly Journal, May 1948, v. 5, p. 51). Bartolozzi departed for London in the same year, thus it is likely the Manin Componimenti was his final (and grandest) commission executed in the High-Baroque style for a Venetian ceremonial book. Altogether the work contains an engraved title comprised of a baroque cartouche frame with the Manin coat-of-arms, a portrait of Manin, 16 head- and tailpieces, 40 ornate borders surrounding the text (one repeated), and a full-page engraved publisher's mark. "Together with the Ingresso for Gian Francesco Pisani (1763), this book stands as the ideal synthesis of Bartolozzi's extraordinary technical and stylistic virtuosity in book decoration" (Glory of Venice, no. 245). A fine copy, wrappers rebacked, front blank leaf a little spotted and repaired. Morazzoni 272 (illustrated in plates #38-51). Lapiccirella 56. Soranzo 291. Not in Hollis.

Complete suite of six numbered engravings on three sheets, signed "Le Prince 1764." Tipped-on and mounted on heavier paper, in window mats. Moscow, [1764]. WITH: ____________. IIe Suitte d'habillements des Femmes de Moscovie. Complete set of six numbered engraved plates on three sheets, signed "Le Prince 1768." Tipped-on and mounted on heavier paper, in window mats. Preserved in folding box of green paper over boards. Moscow: [1768].Early issue of two suites from Le Prince's celebrated album of Russian Cries and Costume, which "constitute an important part of the pictorial record of the time" (Beall p. 485). Le Prince's Russian etchings became hugely popular and have been justly praised for their documentary as well as their artistic and aesthetic value. Jean-Baptiste Le Prince (1734-1781) painter; draftsman and etcher, was the most famous student of François Boucher. Not only did Le Prince assume Boucher's controlled painting style, but he also adopted his master's penchant for rustic settings with shepherds and shepherdesses.During 1750s Le Prince traveled extensively throughout Russia, filling sketchbooks with studies of the Russian people, with special emphasis on local customs and costumes. He returned to Paris in 1763 and began painting pictures and printing etchings of the Russian countryside and daily life. In 1765 the French Académie Royale exhibited fifteen paintings by Le Prince, all scenes of Russia. It has been noted that the artist used Russian costumes brought back to France from his travels and even small mannequins to create accurate rendering of dress and local type. "Le Prince's graphic art of Russia and its peoples is significant in that he based his compositions entirely upon his own designs, lending a much more realistic portrayal to his views than other eighteenth-century contemporaries. He is also credited with being the first artist (in 1768) to introduce aquatint into his etched and engraved plates. He may even have been the inventor of aquatint" (J. Paul Getty Museum online). A few light spots, else very fine.Not in Lipperheide. Colas 1841 & 1847. Ray, French I, 75-6. Cohen-Ricci 626.

Paris: The Author, [1764]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, First Issue.

        Caryophyllus, General Clayton

      Nuremberg 1764 - The “Hortus Nitidissimis Omnem Per Annum Superbiens Floribus Sive Amoenissimorum Florum Imagines” was published between 1750 and 1786 as a periodical intended, when collected, to form an unmatched collection of botanical prints. The engravings are based on the drawings collected from various artists by the famous Nuremberg physician and amateur botanist Christopher Jacob Trew. Although the plates were produced using engraving techniques common to the period, each plate was completed individually through hand coloring. The variations in plates between different known volumes indicates that more than one artist was involved in this process. These variations render every volume of the work unique. Trew’s good friend Georg Dionysius Ehret, considered the most important and influential botanical artist of the mid-18th century, was a chief artist of this endeavor. Ehret was born to farmers in Heidelberg, Germany in 1708, and showed an early propensity for drawing. As a young man he was employed primarily as a gardener and he used his time spent gardening to examine and practice drawing botanicals and the natural world around him. Eventually his art attracted the attention of Dr. Trew who gave Ehret financial patronage and with whom he worked on the Hortus Nitidissimis as well as Plantae Selectae. These botanical engravings are considered the finest records of cultivated flowers of the time and are noted as being precisely engraved and exquisitely colored. This hand colored engraving, Caryophyllus, 20” x 14”, is in excellent condition with a slight stain on the top right edge. Caryophyllus is a type of herbaceous perennial plant commonly called the carnation. This engraving of the blooming flower is expertly colored and highlighted in crimson gray and white. The delicate stem is also detailed and dynamically colored.
