        [Half-title:] Naufrage et retour en Europe de monsieur de Kearny.[Paris?, the author?, 1764?]. 8vo. With a headpiece built up from Fournier's rococo cast fleurons. Set in Fournier types, including decorated titling capitals. 20th-century (sponge printed?) decorated paper wrappers in lavendar, green and brown, red sprinkled edges.

      Barbier III, col.400 (''publiés par A.-G. Meusnier de Querlon, 1764, in -8, 48 pp.''); KVK (3 copies); Polak 13070; cf: Andrus and Start (publishers), Remarkable shipwrecks ... (Hartford, 1813), pp. 94-108; Duncan, The Mariner's Chronicle III, pp. 180-198; not in Huntress; on the author: Dictionnaire des journalistes (1600-1789) online ed. Very rare narrative of the loss of the English East Indiaman Fattysalam off the coast of Coromandel on 28 August 1761. It was written by the French counsellor, man of letters and employee at the Royal library of King Louis XV, Anne-Gabriel Meusnier de Querlon (1702-1780), Comte de Kearny, and the book refers to him simply as De Kearny. The account ''is given in a letter from M. de Kearny, a captain in Lally's regiment, who was taken prisoner by the English, to the Count D'Estaing, lieutenant-general, commanding the French troops in the East Indies, during the war of 1756 ... The Fattysalam had been built at Bombay, and had never been employed in the Indian seas. She was intended to carry great part of the stores taken by the English, and near 500 troops, which it had been thought fit to send to Bengal, because after the regiment of Pondicherry, they were not wanted on that coast...'' (Duncan).Kearny was one out of 12 who had escaped from the ship, which had been lost, together with most of the crew. By way of the dominion of the Rajah of Arsapour, Cuttack, Barrasole and Calcutta, the company arrived at Goupil (Gupil) where they spotted several of the East India Company's ships. ''On the 2d of February I [Kearny] left Calcutta and returned to Goupil, on the Ganges, where I embarked in the Holdernesse, commanded by Captain Brooke. I was received with great kindness by the captain, who had on board thirteen or fourteen other French officers, prisoners like myself'' (Duncan). After a month the ship arrived at London, from where he was permitted to return to France.The book gives no date, place of publication or name of the publisher, but Barbier indicates that is was published by De Kearny in 1764 (the latest date mentioned in the account is 1762). The (laid) paper is watermarked with a cardinall's arms with "Fin Dannonay|M[fleur-de-lis]Iohanot 1742", that is Mathieu Johannot in Annonay. The 1742 date was used in French paper for decades and Mathieu Johannot was active in Annonay to 1785. The types and ornaments appear in Pierre Simon Fournier's 1764 type specimen.Only slightly trimmed, preserving some deckles. In very good condition, with only a small marginal stain at the foot of pp. 35-36. The front wrapper with 2 tears along a fold.

        Wahre Abbildung des Jan Pawlikowicz Zdomozyrskich Komarnicki, nebst seinem bey sich habenden 9jährigen Sohne Patrick, welcher durch seine lächerliche und unter gesitteten Menschen unanständige Lebensart, so er mit Feigenblättern der heiligen Schrift zu bemänteln suchte, den Namen des berüchtigten Ziegen-Propheten erhalten hat.

      O. O., ca. 1764.. Mit gr. Holzschnitt-Illustration und darunter zweispaltigem Text. Einblattdruck. 33 x 18 cm.. Nicht bei Drugulin, für mich bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar. - Am 13. Januar 1764 tauchte der religiöse Schwärmer und Wanderprediger Jan Pawlikowicz mit seinem Sohn in der Nähe von Königsberg auf; beide barfuß, in Tierfellen gekleidet und von einer Herde von 14 Kühen, 20 Schafen und 46 Ziegen begleitet. Der Text beschreibt ausführlich die sonderbaren Ernährungsmethoden der beiden und die angeblichen Christuserscheinungen des Vaters. Jan Pawlikowicz Verhalten wird mit einer letztendlich psychischen Krankheit erklärt, der heimlich bettelnde Sohn aber als durchaus gesund angesehen. - Das erstaunliche Paar zog auch die beiden großen Geister Königbergs an: Johann Georg Hamann und Immanuel Kant betrachteten das sonderbare Gespann und publizierten darüber. das Hauptaugenmerk wurde dabei auf den Sohn gerichtet, der unter einfachsten Umständen in Wäldern aufwuchs und so als ein Beispiel für das vollkommene, unschuldige Kind nach Rousseaus edlem Wilden genommen werden konnte. Durch das Betteln hatte er bereits von der Zivilisation kosten können und wäre dadurch im Rousseauschen Sinne auch bereits als verdorben anzusehen. Hamann und Kant veröffentlichen nun beide am 10. Februar 1764 in der Königsbergschen Gelehrte und Politischen Zeitung ihre Beobachtungen und Schlüsse: Hamanns "Ueber den Abenteurer Jan Pawlikowicz Zdomozyrskich Komarnicki" stellt den Versuch einer Deutung des Geschehens im aufklärerischen Sinne dar, während Kants "Raissonement" nicht das beauftragte Gutachten enthält, Kant bezeichnet den Ziegenpropheten nur als "begeisterten Faunus", sondern eine Auseinandersetzung mit dem Irrationalen darstellt. In der nächsten Nummer der Zeitung veröffentlichte Kant den "Versuch über die Krankheiten des Kopfes", wo er am Beispiel der geistigen Verwirrung des Ziegenpropheten Parallelen zu dem Mystiker Swedenborg zieht. - Etwas fleckig. Knapp beschnitten, unterer Rand etwas aufgerauht und wenige Buchstaben der letzten Zeile der linken Textspalte peripher betroffen.

      Paris, Par le S. Bellin, Ingénieur de la Marine, 1764. 1764 - 5 vol. in-4° (333 x 245 mm.) de : [5] ff., 102 cartes (62 doubles dont 2 dépliantes, 40 simples) ; II. [3] ff., 91 cartes (37 doubles dont 3 dépliantes, 54 simples) ; III. [4] ff., 128 cartes (45 doubles dont 2 dépliantes, 83 simples) ; IV. [4] ff., 129 cartes (31 doubles dont 1 dépliante, 98 simples), V. [4] ff., 132 cartes (62 doubles dont 1 dépliante, 70 simples). Donnant au total 582 cartes (soit 7 de plus que ce qu’annonce Polak). Plein veau marbré d’époque, dos à cinq nerfs ornés dans les caissons d’ancres et de fleurs de lys estampées dorées, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin fauve et vert, armes royales frappées et dorées sur les plats, tranches rouges. (Coiffes, coins et un mors restaurés). Exemplaire aux armes royales de ce monument de la cartographie française du 18ème siècle, réunissant les cartes marines des cinq continents. Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) entra au Dépôt des cartes et plans de la Marine peu après sa création en 1721, et y passa toute sa vie. Nommé ingénieur hydrographe en août 1741, il incarne le type même du géographe en chambre car il ne voyagea jamais et travailla sur les documents qui lui furent fournis par les navigateurs. En cinquante ans d'activité, il compila une masse titanesque de connaissances géographiques de son époque, en plagiant bien souvent les travaux des marins comme d'Après de Mannevillette, qui d’ailleurs s’en plaignit à l'Académie des Sciences. Il publia 59 cartes de toutes les régions du monde, rassemblées en plusieurs volumes sous le titre d’Hydrographie française (1753) puis, en 1764, le présent Petit Atlas Maritime, en 5 volumes, qui fut pendant plusieurs décennies le bréviaire des navigateurs. Annoncé dans Le Journal de Trévoux en janvier 1765, il fut publié grâce à la contribution du duc de Choiseul qui prit en charge la majeure partie des dépenses. Bellin est également l’auteur d'une Nouvelle méthode pour apprendre la géographie (1769) et fut membre de l'Académie de Marine et de la Société royale de Londres. Certainement son œuvre majeure, le présent « Petit Atlas Maritime », offre aux navigateurs les cartes et plans les plus clairs de l’époque pour toutes les parties du monde. L’ouvrage, entièrement gravé, se compose de cinq tomes, dont le premier s’ouvre sur le titre général, et qui comptent tous un titre particulier et une table. Ces tables ne mentionnent pas les cartes bis qui figurent dans certains exemplaires comme celui-ci, dans lequel sont reliées non pas 575 cartes (ce qu’annonce Polak) mais 582 cartes, soit 7 de plus : deux au second volume : 39 (« Cartes des Isles du Salut ») et 61 (« Carte des Isles malouines ») ; deux au troisième volume : 3 (« Carte réduite des Découvertes des Russes ») et 92 (« Isle de Mogador »), et une au quatrième volume : 50 (« Plan du Port du Passage). Les cartes 123 et 124 du troisième volume sont en double. Les deux premiers volumes sont consacrés à l’Amérique (Septentrionale et les Isles Antilles pour le premier avec 102 cartes, Méridionales et ses détails pour le second en 91 cartes). Le troisième volume compte 128 cartes, et comporte deux parties : l’Asie (69 cartes) et l’Afrique (59 cartes), cette seconde partie ayant son titre gravé. Le quatrième, en 129 cartes est intitulé : « l’Europe et les divers Etats qu’elle renferme, excepté la France » ; et le cinquième, en 132 cartes : « Les Costes de France et les Places Maritimes sur l’Océan sur la Méditerranée ». Bel exemplaire en reliure d’époque aux armes. 5 vol. folio. 582 engraved maps. Contemporary marbled calf with royal arms. Fine copy with 7 additional maps of this cornerstone work of the 18th century French cartography. Jacques Nicolas Bellin worked for the Dépôt des Cartes et Plans de la Marine over fifty years. He never travelled but he built an enormous collection of sea charts. In 1741 he was appointed "Ingenieur hydrographe de la Marine". Later J.N. Bellin become "Hydrographe du Roy" and a member of the Royal Society in London. In 1764, Bellin published t

        A Flemish Entertainment. From the Original Picture, Painted by Van Harp, In the Collection of the Right Honourable the Earl of Bute

      John Boydell, London 1764 - A very fine genre picture, expertly interpreted by Earlom and Walker. The artist of the original work is probably Willem van Herp (not Harp as in the title): the most likely candidate from amongst a prolific family of 17th-century Flemish painters. A riotous scene, full of movement, set in an anteroom in a Flemish tavern. In the foreground a cat and dog pause momentarily during their ongoing battle. Guests are seated around a table set with bread and ham. A small boy reaches for the ham. The men, all somewhat the worse for drink, sit or stand around. One man relieves himself in the background, whilst two of his companions try and sweet-talk two of the serving maids, both of whom resist, one tries to keep her paramour at arms length whilst still maintaining her grip on a dish of fresh radishes, but a third seated figure reaches up and pulls her towards him by her apron. It has been observed that the tobacco 17th century Dutch and English men (and for that matter that the Native Americans) smoked was considerably more narcotic than that available today, and here, four of the much less than sober men are smoking. In any event, this is an excellent example of the obstensibly moralistic illustrations that the Dutch painted but which were ultimately celebrations of inebriation, particularly in Frans Hals' and Jan Steen's work. These pictorial celebrations resonated with the English of course, with their venerable traditions of heavy beer drinking and smoke filled taverns. Copper engraving, coloured by hand, by William Walker, from Richard Earlom's design after van Herp.

Mütterlicherseits war Werner der Enkel, der von Goethe als "Euphrosyne" gefeierten Schauspielerin Christiane Becker, geb. Neumann. Zuerst studierte er bei H.V. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1764-1844) an der Leipziger Akademie, seit 1829 Architektur bei F. von Gärtner (1791-1847) in München. 1831 ging er zur Malerei über, erlangte nach Einsendung einiger Studien zur Ausstellung nach Dresden 1832 das große Reisestipendium nach Italien und reiste 1832 über Venedig, Bologna und Florenz nach Rom. Hier trat er 1835 zum Katholizismus über und heiratete Giuditt Wallis, die Tochter des schottischen Malers Gg.A. Wallis (1770-1847). Seit 1845 war er Mitglied des Deutschen Künstler-Vereins, dessen erster Präsident er wurde. 1851 gründete er ein Meisteratelier für Aquarellmalerei in Venedig. 1856 kehrte er nach Deutschland zurück und ließ sich in Leipzig nieder. Von hier aus unternahm er noch zahlreiche Reisen innerhalb Nord- und Südeuropas.

        Wahre Abbildung des Jan Pawlikowicz Zdomozyrskich Komarnicki, nebst seinem bey sich habenden 9jährigen Sohne Patrick, welcher durch seine lächerliche und unter gesitteten Menschen unanständige Lebensart, so er mit Feigenblättern der heiligen Schrift zu bemänteln suchte, den Namen des berüchtigten Ziegen-Propheten erhalten hat

      O. O., ca. 1764.. Mit gr. Holzschnitt-Illustration und darunter zweispaltigem Text. Einblattdruck. 33 x 18 cm. Nicht bei Drugulin, für mich bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar. - Am 13. Januar 1764 tauchte der religiöse Schwärmer und Wanderprediger Jan Pawlikowicz mit seinem Sohn in der Nähe von Königsberg auf; beide barfuß, in Tierfellen gekleidet und von einer Herde von 14 Kühen, 20 Schafen und 46 Ziegen begleitet. Der Text beschreibt ausführlich die sonderbaren Ernährungsmethoden der beiden und die angeblichen Christuserscheinungen des Vaters. Jan Pawlikowicz Verhalten wird mit einer letztendlich psychischen Krankheit erklärt, der heimlich bettelnde Sohn aber als durchaus gesund angesehen. - Das erstaunliche Paar zog auch die beiden großen Geister Königbergs an: Johann Georg Hamann und Immanuel Kant betrachteten das sonderbare Gespann und publizierten darüber. das Hauptaugenmerk wurde dabei auf den Sohn gerichtet, der unter einfachsten Umständen in Wäldern aufwuchs und so als ein Beispiel für das vollkommene, unschuldige Kind nach Rousseaus edlem Wilden genommen werden konnte. Durch das Betteln hatte er bereits von der Zivilisation kosten können und wäre dadurch im Rousseauschen Sinne auch bereits als verdorben anzusehen. Hamann und Kant veröffentlichen nun beide am 10. Februar 1764 in der Königsbergschen Gelehrte und Politischen Zeitung ihre Beobachtungen und Schlüsse: Hamanns "Ueber den Abenteurer Jan Pawlikowicz Zdomozyrskich Komarnicki" stellt den Versuch einer Deutung des Geschehens im aufklärerischen Sinne dar, während Kants "Raissonement" nicht das beauftragte Gutachten enthält, Kant bezeichnet den Ziegenpropheten nur als "begeisterten Faunus", sondern eine Auseinandersetzung mit dem Irrationalen darstellt. In der nächsten Nummer der Zeitung veröffentlichte Kant den "Versuch über die Krankheiten des Kopfes", wo er am Beispiel der geistigen Verwirrung des Ziegenpropheten Parallelen zu dem Mystiker Swedenborg zieht. - Etwas fleckig. Knapp beschnitten, unterer Rand etwas aufgerauht und wenige Buchstaben der letzten Zeile der linken Textspalte peripher betroffen.

        De Morbis Navigantium , Liber Unus. Accedit Observatio de Effectu Extracti Cicutae Storkiano in Cancro

      Leiden: Theodore Haak, 1764. Octavo, completely uncut; edges rather dust-soiled; modern half calf, old library stamp and release stamp on verso of title-page. Dutch voyage medicine. First edition: an important treatise on the diseases of sailors and their cure. Rouppe, naval physician and surgeon, had travelled widely in the West Indies aboard the Dutch ship Princesse Carolina, and he based much of this work on observations made during these voyages. He offers a detailed account of the symptoms and treatment of many of the illnesses which were common amongst sailors, including an extended section on the vexed and topical question of scurvy, which would be addressed by Cook in his famous 1776 paper to the Royal Society. Rouppe's work also addresses the sometimes delicate issue of maintaining the health of sailors whilst they are subject to local temptations during stays in port. The book's importance was reflected in its 1772 translation into English. This copy was once in the famous Wellcome Library, and has their ownership and release stamps.

        Voyages from Asia to America , for completing the Discoveries of the North West coast of America. To which is prefixed, a Summary of the Voyages made by the Russians on the Frozen Sea, in search of a North East passage

      London: Printed for T. Jefferys, 1764. Quarto, with four maps (two folding and coloured); slightly browned, tear on fold of one map neatly repaired; a good copy in later half calf, extremities rubbed. The best edition. First edition of Jefferys' important work, an English version of Gerhard Müller's obscurely published account of Russian discoveries in eastern Asia and north America, which contained the first full narrative of the Bering expedition, a 'most important contemporary account of Bering's discoveries, by a scientist attached to his second expedition' (Howes). The text has significant additions by Jefferys, and thus is not simply a translation of Müller's work. It represents the best contemporary geographical knowledge regarding the question of the Northeast Passage. The book is especially significant for its maps, in particular the first large map of "Discoveries made by the Russians on the North West Coast of America", showing both Kamchatka and the northwest coast and incorporating some changes by Jefferys, including topographical information about Siberia, as well as descriptive notes about events on Bering's expedition. The second, a large folding map of Canada, shows discoveries from Canada to the west of Hudson Bay and some points on the western coast. Smaller maps depict "part of a Japanese map of the World", from a manuscript in the Sloane collection, and discoveries relative to the search for a passage to the South Sea by Admiral de Fonte and other Spanish, English and Russian navigators. These maps have an extra importance as we know that along with those in Staehlin's book they figured prominently in the planning for Cook's third voyage and were used by, and mostly confused, Cook himself during the progress of his final voyage (see Beaglehole, Life of Cook, pp. 486-489, 593-4, 599, 604-5, 613, 617, 627, 633). None of the maps had appeared in Müller's original work, which was published in St Petersburg, where he was a lecturer at the Academy, in 1753 as Nachrichten von Seereisen, the third volume of his Sammlung Russischer Geschichte: it later appeared in French as Voyages et Découvertes Faites par les Russes, with a single map.

The whole being calculated, as well for conveying a more accurate and extensive knowledge of the matters treated of to professed artists; as to initiate those, who are desirous to attempt these arts, into the method of preparing and using all the colours, and other substances employed in painting in oil, miniature, crayons, encaustic, enamel, varnish, distemper, and fresco; as also in gilding, &c. 2 volumes, second edition 1764, "with considerable additions and improvements", 8vo, 210 x 125 mm, 8¼ x 5 inches, Volume 1, pages xxvii, [9], 1 - 304, 321 - 522, plus 10 pages of index, (page numbers 305 - 320 were not used, nothing is missing, collated and guaranteed complete) Volume 2, pages, xiv, [14] 1 - 462 plus 10 pages of index, rebound in full modern calf, contrasting labels of maroon and green with gilt lettering and rules, raised bands with central gilt designs and rules, double gilt rules to edges of covers, new endpapers, edges of Vol 1, stained brown and the edges of Vol 2, stained yellow.

Among his friends he counted Dr Samuel Johnson. With the Handmaid to the Arts, first published in 1758, Dossie intended to give artists and artisans an understanding of the technical processes they were using. As a resource, it was well regarded by eighteenth and early nineteenth century artisans and it continues to be a standard reference for practical techniques of that era. The subjects treated in Volume I are listed in the title above with Part I being the largest section and includes mending and cleaning paintings and varnishing and preserving them. Volume II contains chapters on inks, cements, print - making of various kinds, working with glass and counterfeiting gems, porcelain including glazing, painting and gilding, glazing of stone or earthenware, papier mache plus an Appendix which covers marbling paper, weaving tapestry and manufacturing paper hangings etc. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        Viaggi di Enrico Wanton alle Terre Incognite Australi , ed ai Regni delle Scimie, e de' Cinocefali

      Berna" [Venice], 1764. Four volumes, small octavo, with an engraved frontispiece and 33 plates; a most attractive set in early paper boards, speckled spines with ochre labels picked out in gilt, signed "G.T." at base of spines, a little bumped. With a map of the Monkey-cities of Australia. A wonderful imaginary voyage to Australia: second, greatly extended edition, the first to include the map. The work is famous for its striking suite of engravings, which are evidently modelled on Venetian scenery; it is 'exceedingly rare and very seldom catalogued, any edition is worth adding to a collection' (Davidson). This is the 1764 "Berna" (actually Venice) edition of Seriman's extraordinary satire, notable as the first to include Seriman's continuation to the land of the Dogs, the first to include a portrait of the hero "Enricus Wanton" and, perhaps most significantly, the first to include a map (making it one of only a handful of imaginary voyages to Australia which actually chart the countryside and prominent cities of the land). Seriman (1708-84) was a Venetian from an influential Armenian merchant family. Although little information has surfaced about his life, he wrote several books, of which this is the most startlingly original. Purporting to be a translation from the English (in fact no English version has ever appeared), this work describes how Wanton escapes the dull confines of England and discovers the Southern Land after a shipwreck. Enrico and his fellow traveller Roberto venture inland and discover a highly refined society of monkeys, with all the accoutrements of European civilization. Our heroes quickly come to favour, eventually becoming Ministers of the Realm, over-indulging in coffee-houses, balls, and regular trips to the theatre. The chronicle of their excesses is beautifully realized in the suite of engravings which accompany the text. The book was first published in Venice in 1749 as a two-volume voyage to the land of the Apes, with twenty-four plates by the Swiss artist Giorgio Fossati.

George also references competing suitors and suggests Ursula keep his letter private. <br><br> Ursulaâ&#128;&#153;s letter [September 11th, 1764] to George laments the anguish he has experienced pining after her. She assures him of her love for him and wishes: â&#128;&#156;â&#128;¦oh that I could now return myself to thy arms with the passion of that which I am obliged to have thee to go so far for.â&#128;&#157; She begs him to wait patiently while she sails to meet him. Though seasick and weary, she writes, â&#128;&#156;I shall endure if I attain thee as my reward, will most agreeably satisfy meâ&#128;¦â&#128;&#157; <br><br> The marriage contract [July 10, 1766] bears the signatures of 26 members of the Quakers of Virginia, many of which were of the Pleasants - an influential Virginia Quaker family.

        The Elements of Navigation; containing the Theory and Practice. With all the necessary Tables. To which is added, A Treatise of Marine Fortification

      London: J. Nourse, 1764. Two volumes, large octavo, 11 folding plates and five folding maps (two celestial), many diagrams, engraved headpieces; an attractive set in contemporary sprinkled calf, hinges worn but strong; spines numbered but unlettered. Robertson on navigation. A fine set of the rare second edition of the standard textbook on navigation for the eighteenth-century British navy. First published in 1754, Robertson&#39;s Elements of Navigation was considered important enough that it was updated and republished every decade or so, meaning that it was used and studied by everyone from Carteret to Matthew Flinders, and undoubtedly by Cook as well. Notably the fourth edition of 1780 was revised by William Wales, astronomer and member of Captain Cook&#39;s second voyage. Robertson had a long and important career, and was involved in many practical and theoretical developments in navigation and mapping. In 1747 he was appointed assistant to James Hodgson at the Royal Mathematical School at Christ&#39;s Hospital in the City of London, and two decades later was appointed clerk and librarian to the Royal Society. He was also involved in trialling Harrison&#39;s chronometers. Most of the engravings are by the famous London engraver Thomas Jefferys, who produced many important 18th-century maps. Attractively, in a standard naval reference work of its daThe double-globe map of the world is by Basire, perhaps better known for his portrait of Captain Cook. Basire&#39;s map shows tropical currents and winds, and depicts Terra Australis/New Holland in the years before Cook&#39;s first voyage. (Torres Strait is not shown, as it was not known in the English tradition until 1769). This edition was improved by the addition of an excellent dissertation on the rise and progress of modern navigation by Dr James Wilson. Perhaps attesting to this particular edition&#39;s use and importance, this is a surprisingly scarce work: when Helen Wallis edited the journals of Carteret she had to resort to using the later third edition, rather than the second which actually travelled with Carteret, as the second &#39;is rare and no copy is in the national collections in Great Britain&#39; (Helen Wallis, Carteret&#39;s Voyage, vol. I, p. 144). A copy of this edition is now listed at Cambridge.

Both states are printed from the same setting of type (with these exceptions), and neither is found as a cancel" (Gaskell). Dalby&#39;s short work on the treatment of hydrophobia is the first of only two medical books printed by Baskerville, the other being William Hunter&#39;s Anatomy of the Human Gravid Uterus (1774). Unlike the Gravid Uterus, Dalby&#39;s work is extremely rare on the market, with no auction records over the past 25 years; this is the first copy we have seen in over 40 years of trading. The work was printed for the author and sold by subscription. The subscribers&#39; list (leaves a2-a4) cites fewer than 200 people, it is likely that the edition was not much larger than that.

        Harmonischer Einklang

      . Aquarell über Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts ligiert monogrammiert: "NATHE"; 12,5 x 15,6 cm. Christoph Nathe gehört zur frühen Generationen sächsischer Landschaftsmaler, die der Gattung - bisher in der Hierarchie der Bildgenres stets untergeordnet - einen neuen Stellenwert verliehen. Ausgehend von der Dresdener Akademie, die bei ihrer Neugründung 1764 erstmals eine eigene Professur für Landschaft etablierte, entwickelt sich eine eigenständige sächsische Landschaftskunst, die auch für die Entwicklung der deutschen Romantik grundlegend wichtig wurde. Obwohl nicht in Dresden, sondern an der Leipziger Akademie bei Adam Friedrich Oeser in der Malerei und bei Friedrich Bause im Kupferstich ausgebildet, wandte sich Nathe schon bald der Landschaft zu und stand mit den Dresdener Entwicklungen in steter und enger Beziehung. Seine aquarellierte Bleistiftzeichnung operiert nicht mit berühmten Bauten, beeindruckenden Ruinen oder spektakulären Naturereignissen. Sie zielt vielmehr auf den Einklang von Mensch und Natur. Das Blatt zeigt einen kleinen Hof zwischen Bäumen, ein verschachteltes, beschauliches Ensemble aus Holzhäusern, Remise und Ställen. Harmonisch verbindet sich die bäuerliche Architektur mit Büschen und dem Laub der Baumkronen. In einer klaren Diagonalkomposition setzt Nathe das malerische Gehöft in Beziehung zur flachen Landschaft und dem hohen Himmel und ordnet dem Vordergrund eine detaillierte, doch nie kleinliche Staffage aus Tieren, Figuren, Wagen und einzelnen Pflanzen zu. Dabei führt er den Blick so geschickt über das Blatt, daß die ausbalancierte Konstruktion ganz natürlich, wie zufällig gesehen, erscheint. Die subtile Lavierung, für die Nathe schon zu Lebzeiten gerühmt wurde, verstärkt die atmosphärische Dichte der Szene zum Eindruck eines hellen, friedlichen Sommertags. Die Schatten sind sanft, die hellbraunen Lasuren bilden keine scharfen Kontraste zum Papierton, doch beleben sie die Ansicht in ihrer ausgewogenen Verteilung und in den fein abgestuften Tönen. Wie der fast gleich alte Johann Christian Klengel, zu jener Zeit Professor für Landschaftsmalerei in Dresden, richtete auch Nathe sein Interesse weniger auf topographisch bestimmbare Orte im Sinne einer lexikalischen Erfassung und genauen Wiedergabe. Vielmehr interessierten ihn typische Ansichten und charakteristische Szenerien. Kleine Höfe, Dorfränder, das pittoreske Repertoire der heimatlichen Umgebung, fügte Nathe zu Kompositionen, die von der holländischen Malerei des 17. Jahrhunderts ebenso geprägt sind wie von der direkten Anschauung der Natur. Das Zeichnen im Freien erlebte in der künstlerischen Ausbildung der Zeit einen ungemeinen Aufschwung. Nathe, seit 1787 Direktor der Görlitzer Zeichenschule, hielt seine Schüler zu diesen Übungen an und fertigte selbst auf zahlreichen Wanderungen eine Vielzahl kleiner Reiseskizzen, die als Radierungen und Lithographien große Verbreitung fanden.
