        The School of Art, or, Most compleat drawing-book extant : consisting of an extensive series of well chosen examples, selected from the designs of those eminent masters Watteau, Boucher, Bouchardon, Le Brun, Eisen, &c. &c., engraved on sixty folio copper plates and performed in a method which expresses the manner of handling the chalk and the management of harmony of its tincts in real drawings

      London: printed for John Bowles; Robert Sayer, and Carington Bowles, 1765. WITHOUT TITLE-PAGE and text but with all plates. Sixty folio crayon copperplates printed in orange. Folio. Modern cloth spine and tips, marbled boards. Fine. "Smith is generally credited with popularizing crayon manner engraving in England, mainly because he executed a series of plates in this style from designs by Watteau, Boucher, Edmé Bouchardon, and others-including 12 Heads Selected from Monsr. Le Brun's 'Passions of the Soul', printed for Robert Sayer-which were all published together on sixty folio copperplates by John and Carrington Bowles and Sayer as The School of Art, or, Most Compleat Drawing-Book Extant (1765). There had been no market for the technique when it was first used by Pond, but by the 1760s the English had developed a taste for French drawings. The preface to Smith's drawing book indicates that it appeared not only to fill that market, but also, by placing less emphasis on proportion and perspective and containing more examples of landscapes, rococo cartouches, and flower drawings, to respond to the growing demand for drawing books which catered to the new, often female, type of amateur whose numbers were beginning to increase around this time."

        Ionnis Wallisii grammatica linguae Anglicanae Edition sexta

      London: G. Bowyer & A. Millar, 1765. 8vo, xxxv, 281, [2]. With engraved portrait and HollisÕs catalogue of the literature of liberty. Smoke print of binderÕs emblem Liberty on final leaf. Red morocco with gilt figure of Britannia on upper cover, an owl on the lower cover, vertical gilt lettering and caduceus on backstrip. Bottom joint cracked, top joint starting. Marbled endpapers and edges with bookplates of two former owners on front pastedown and the signature ?'E. Gordon Duff?" on the verso of the flyleaf. Inscription on second blank leaf reads: ?'This book was printed at the expense of Mr Holles, who sent some copies to me abroad in the year 1766 for the use of learned foreigners. E. [signature cut out] See BowyerÕs Anecdotes.?" The sixth edition of WallisÕs grammar intended for foreign learners was one of several works edited and distributed by Thomas Hollis for ?'the protection and advancement of English liberty?" (DNB). The smoke print records one of the emblematic tools cut by Thomas Pingo for HollisÕs bindings, the second set used after the first was destroyed by fire in 1764. Rothschild 2731. ?'A most correct and elegant edition with a portrait of Wallis by Cipriani?"(Lowndes 2817). The signature is likely to be that of misanthropic English bibliographer, Edward Gordon Duff (1863-1924), whose ?'scientific?" approach to bibliography led to scathing attacks on his colleagues, and to new standards of accuracy in his profession (DNB). The MS note refers to Vol. 9 of BowyerÕs Literary Anecdotes (1812) which observes ?'To this Volume is prefixed a Portrait of Dr. Wallis, finely copied by Basire from that drawn by Cipriani, for Mr. HollisÕs Edition of the DoctorÕs English Grammar.?"

        Würtembergische Landes-Grund-Verfassung, besonders in Rucksicht auf die Landstände und deren Verhältniß gegen die höchste Landes-Herrschafft welche sich auf dieses Herzogthums, von Anno 1482. an, von denen Römischen Kaysern, und Königen, Chur-Fürsten, Erz-Herzogen des Hauses Österreich, auch andern grossen Fürsten und Ständen des Heil.

Land-Tags-Abschied zwischen der Herzoglich-Württembergischen Ober-Vormundschafft, sodann Prälaten und Landschafft des Herzogthums Württemberg, d.d. 18. Apr. 1739. (Stuttgart, 1739). 36 S. - 2.

Ohne Ort, 1741. 127 Seiten. - Die Württembergischen Landstände bestanden aus Vertretungen der Geistlichkeit und des Bürgertums (der Adel war mit der Reformation ausgeschieden). Im Zuge zunehmender zentralistischer Machtbestrebungen gab es auch in Württemberg unter Carl Eugen zunehmende Versuche des Landesfürsten, die Position und Rechte der sogenannten Landschaft zu beschneiden, der Landtag wurde im gesamten 18. Jahrhundert nur zweimal eingebrufen. Wohl unter Federführung des aktiven oppositionellen Johann Jacob Moser wird in dem vorliegenden Buch auf die Altwürttembergische Verfassung und die verbrieften Rechte der Landschaft Bezug genommen, wie sie 1482 im Münsinger Vertrag und 1514 im Tübinger Vertrag festgeschrieben waren. Der künftige Verlauf der Geschichte zeigt, dass diese Bemühungen der Ständevertretungen erfolglos blieben. Mit dem unter Napoleon neu entstandenen Königreich Württemberg setzte der König 1805 die alte Verfassung eigenmächtig außer Kraft. Zwar mußte er nach längerem Verweigern 1819 in einer neuen Verfassung eine ständische Vertretung von Adel und Bürgertum aufnehmen, in der realen Machtausübung hat sich die selbstherrliche Politik der Könige im 19. Jahrhundert aber ebenso wenig vom Willen des Volkes beeindrucken lassen wie die später demokratisch legitimierte Politaristokratie im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert (wie die jüngeren Ereignisse in Stuttgart allzu deutlich zeigen). - Die letzten ca. 200 Seiten sowie die 3 Beibindungen und Register gebräunt und mit gebräunten Feuchtigkeitsrändern.

        The Hymns, Anthems & Tunes with the Ode used at the Magdalen Chapel Set for the Organ, Harpsichord, Voice, German-Flute or Guitar

      Printed for C. and S. Thompson, London 1765 - A poorly preserved copy of a scarce edition of the Magdalen Chapel (London) Hymn Book. Worldcat lists only two copies, one in Magdalen College Library Oxford and the other in King's College (London). The work is undated but OLIS gives 1765 (?), the same date suggested for the similarly undated Thorowgood edition. A calligraphic ownership inscription on the recto of the engraved frontispiece was done in October 1779. Frontispiece engraving of "A Magdalen in Her Uniform" with Magdalen Chapel in the background (cf the Thorowgood edition without the building and the figure reversed), lower right quarter torn with loss of part of image and title, left margin cropped recto with ownership inscription of Sophia Taylor, October 29th 1779. Title page soiled, remounted, lower margin cropped; index (remounted),1-2 torn at gutter margin, 11-12 top corner missing without loss of text, 35-36 frayed and remounted with loss of 1 letter of verse 3 of the Hymn for Christmas. OLIS lists 37 pages but this does not concur with the index of this copy where the last page is 36 (index may then be the 37th page) Late 19th century half leather with marbled boards. A few pencil notes giving name of composer. Damp-stained at gutters and fore edges, particularly at the beginning and end. Founded in 1758 as an institution to help reform prostitutes, most of the organists in the chapel were women who lived there in an atmosphere likened to that of a nunnery by contemporary observers.

One of his most popular operas was Le Sorcier (1764), which appears here bound with songs excerpted from two others of his works, in the company of pieces by two of his contemporaries, Egidio Duni and Rober Desbrosses. All are rare in institutions; on the market, they are virtually non-existent.[Bound with the following titles, all octavo, all entirely engraved:]- PHILIDOR. Ariettes du Jardinier et son seigneur.

Römischen Reichs, hauptsächlich aber von allen Herzogen und Landes-Regenten in Würtemberg Selbsten von Zeit zu Zeit respective rechtmäßig erlangte, ruhig besessene, Allergnädigste und Gnädigst corroborirte und bestättigte, auch feyerlichst auf ewige Zeiten assecurirte Gnaden, Privilegia, Freyheiten, Rechten und Gerechtigkeiten ohnumstößlichst gründet, nach denen Originalen durch den Druck ans Licht gestellt.

Ohne Ort, 1741. 127 Seiten. - Die Württembergischen Landstände bestanden aus Vertretungen der Geistlichkeit und des Bürgertums (der Adel war mit der Reformation ausgeschieden). Im Zuge zunehmender zentralistischer Machtbestrebungen gab es auch in Württemberg unter Carl Eugen zunehmende Versuche des Landesfürsten, die Position und Rechte der sogenannten Landschaft zu beschneiden, der Landtag wurde im gesamten 18. Jahrhundert nur zweimal eingebrufen. Wohl unter Federführung des aktiven oppositionellen Johann Jacob Moser wird in dem vorliegenden Buch auf die Altwürttembergische Verfassung und die verbrieften Rechte der Landschaft Bezug genommen, wie sie 1482 im Münsinger Vertrag und 1514 im Tübinger Vertrag festgeschrieben waren. Der künftige Verlauf der Geschichte zeigt, dass diese Bemühungen der Ständevertretungen erfolglos blieben. Mit dem unter Napoleon neu entstandenen Königreich Württemberg setzte der König 1805 die alte Verfassung eigenmächtig außer Kraft. Zwar mußte er nach längerem Verweigern 1819 in einer neuen Verfassung eine ständische Vertretung von Adel und Bürgertum aufnehmen, in der realen Machtausübung hat sich die selbstherrliche Politik der Könige im 19. Jahrhundert aber ebenso wenig vom Willen des Volkes beeindrucken lassen wie die später demokratisch legitimierte Politaristokratie im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert (wie die jüngeren Ereignisse in Stuttgart allzu deutlich zeigen). - Die letzten ca. 200 Seiten sowie die 3 Beibindungen und Register gebräunt und mit gebräunten Feuchtigkeitsrändern.

The volume contains the fullest collection of Obros - the macaronic poems of which alternate lines are in Hebrew and in Judeo-Provencal. A distinctively emblematic text of the particular Jewish culture and practice that evolved in the Jewish Communities of Avignon and the neighboring territory. See C. Roth, The Liturgies of Avignon and the Comtat Venaissin in: Journal of Jewish Bibliography (1939) pages 99-105. See also New York Public Library Catalogue, A Sign and a Witness (1988) number 170 (illustrated). The Haggadah adheres to the Sepahrdic rite. For example, instead of ¿Ve-hi she-¿amdah¿ hi (without the conjunctive vav) she¿amdah.¿ And before eating the ¿Hillel sandwich:¿ ¿Zekher le-mikdash ke-hillel ha-zaken de-amar ¿al matzoth u-merorim yochluhu.¿ AVIGNON (sometimes called in Hebrew Ir ha-gefanim "city of grapes"; gefen = vigne, i.e., vine), is the capital of the department of Vaucluse, southeastern France, formerly part of Provence. Avignon was the residence of the popes for some years after 1309. In 1348 Joanna, countess of Provence, sold the city to Pope Clement VI and it belonged to the French states of the Holy See until the French Revolution. In consequence the Jews were permitted to remain there and in the adjacent area of the Comtat-Venaissin even when they were excluded from the rest of France. According to legend the Jews took part in a revolt against Bishop Stephen of Avignon in 390. The first archaeological evidence of their presence there dates from the fourth century and is given by a stamp with the five-branched menorah and the inscription: Avin (ionnensis); the first written evidence dates from 1178 when Emperor Frederick I entrusted the protection of the Jews of Avignon to Bishop Pons. The Jewish quarter was at first situated at the present Vieille Juiverie street. About 1221 it was transferred to the neighborhood of the Church of St. Peter. Its location is marked by Rue Jacob and the former Place Jérusalem (today Place Victor-Basch). The old synagogue which stood on this site was destroyed by fire in 1845 and replaced on the same spot by the existing circular synagogue in the Roman manner. Near the synagogue, or escole, there was also a wedding hall, a butchery, and the oven for baking unleavened bread. The Jewish quarter, or carrière des Juifs, was surrounded by walls and closed by three gates. The Jews of Avignon were obliged to pay a tax to the collegiate chapter of St. Peter's (Arch. départ. G IX. 10). Although covering an area of approximately 100 yards by 100 yards, the quarter nevertheless housed over 1000 persons in 1358. One of the cemeteries was located on the site formerly called La Pignotte. The statutes of the city of Avignon of 1243 mention the Communitas Iudeorum several times. It was specifically laid down (art. 84) that animals killed according to Jewish ritual were not to be sold outside the carrière. Jewish commerce flourished during the period of papal residence in Avignon, supplying the papal court with victuals, bed and table linen, horses, perfumes, coral and pearls for rosary beads, parchment, and other commodities. The tailor of Gregory XI was a Jew, as was the papal bookbinder. The less wealthy Jews generally engaged in brokerage. In 1374, 87 of 94 textile dealers and 41 of 62 timber merchants were Jews. In the 14th century, Jewish moneylending on interest, practically nonexistent in the previous century, gradually developed, although limited in scale. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Journals of Major Robert Rogers

      1765. FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR. Journals of Major Robert Rogers: Containing An Account of the several Excursions he made under the Generals who commanded upon the Continent of North America, during the late war. By Major Robert Rogers. viii, 236, plus 4 pp. ads. 8vo., 198 x 125 mm, bound in English contemporary speckled calf. Preserved in a half orange morocco box. London: Printed for the Author, 1765. First Edition. The journals of a frontiersman from the years after the formation of his informally organized but very effective militia, Rogers' Rangers, from 1755 to 1761. The text offers detailed accounts of battles and missions undertaken by Rogers and his command in the region that is now upstate New York during the French and Indian war, including correspondence and tallies of dead and missing soldiers. Roger's Journals served as inspiration for a number of romantic literary tales about America, most notably Kenneth Roberts' Northwest Passage. The author's work later attracted the attention of King George III of England, and Rogers was subsequently awarded the role of governor of Michilimackinac (present-day Mackinaw City, Michigan). Two years after the publication of his journals Rogers was arrested and charged with treason, accused of stating that he would offer his territory to the French if the British did not approve his plan of governance, though he was subsequently acquitted. A bright, clean copy, with some wear to the outer edges of the binding. Inscribed on the inside front cover "Sam Parker Post 0..5..0, 1766" and "James Fenimore Cooper, Curt 65.00, 1928." This copy with the half-title for the proposed second volume and the two advertisement leaves at the rear, not always present. Rebacked in brown morocco with maroon morocco spine label.

        A dictionary of the English language; in which the words are deduced from their originals, and illustrated in their different significations.

      printed by W. Strahan for A. Millar [et al.], London 1765 - "Third edition, folio, titles printed in red and black; recent quarter brown calf antique, red and green morocco labels on spines; title page of volume I neatly reinserted and a little ragged along the top edge, endpapers renewed at the front of volume I, occasional spotting; otherwise a nice set in a handsome binding. "The second folio edition, which began to appear serially soon after the first in the summer of 1755, shows that Johnson almost certainly revised his Preface for that edition, though probably not the wordlist itself. In the editions of the abridgement of the Dictionary, the first of which appeared in 1756, Johnson made slight alterations to his text, usually in response to published criticisms.

        "A dictionary of the English language; in which the words are deduced from their originals, and illustrated in their different significations "

      London: printed by W. Strahan for A. Millar [et al.]. 1765. "Third edition, folio, titles printed in red and black; recent quarter brown calf antique, red and green morocco labels on spines; title page of volume I neatly reinserted and a little ragged along the top edge, endpapers renewed at the front of volume I, occasional spotting; otherwise a nice set in a handsome binding. ""The second folio edition, which began to appear serially soon after the first in the summer of 1755, shows that Johnson almost certainly revised his Preface for that edition, though probably not the wordlist itself. In the editions of the abridgement of the Dictionary, the first of which appeared in 1756, Johnson made slight alterations to his text, usually in response to published criticisms. The 1778 sixth abridged edition was advertised as ""corrected by the author,"" and, indeed, it exhibits many authorial changes.

        The Brave Capt Tyrrill (Tyrrell) in the Buckingham of 66 Guns & 472 Men defeating the Florissant, Aigrette & Atlante, three French Ships of War, the 3rd of Novr 1758 [TYRRELL]

      [London] 1765 - circa 1765. Very early edition. This hand-coloured engraving was trimmed to the edges 292mm x 442mm ( 11.5" x 17 3/8") and mounted to a dark card stock. The English only title was mounted on the reverse on the reverse of the dark mounted card. The trimmed mounted engraving has wear to the corners causing some minor rounding. There is surface dirt, soiling and spotting on the engraving more so on the sky area. Good- condition. Full title: The Brave Capt Tyrrill in the Buckingham of 66 Guns & 472 Men defeating the Florissant, Aigrette & Atlante, three French Ships of War, the 3rd of Novr 1758. N.B. The Florissant 74 Guns, 700 men, Aigrette 38 Guns 350 men Atalante 28 Guns 250 men: these ships were convoying Dutch Ships, with Provisions &c. to Martinico"In 1758, while in command of the 'Buckingham', 64 guns, he intercepted a French convoy protected by the 'Florissant', 74 guns, and two frigates. The 'Buckingham', is depicted in the right background of the portrait, flying a commodore's pendant and a white ensign. When the 'Buckingham' frightened off the two frigates a spirited action between the French and British ship ensued. The 'Buckingham' lost her steering at the moment of victory and this enabled the French ship to escape. Tyrrel was wounded several times and lost three fingers of his right hand, a mutilation clearly visible in the portrait. The action was particularly creditable because the Frenchman carried over 200 men more than the 'Buckingham'. In the following year Tyrrel assisted Commodore Moore to reduce Guadaloupe and brought home the dispatches. After the peace he went out again as Commander-in-Chief at Antigua and died at sea while returning home. " Royal Museums Greenwich.

        Lilium Convalium, Gefulite Mayenblume

      Nuremberg 1765 - 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, Lilium Convalium, 20” x 14”, is in very good condition with slight staining and foxing throughout. Lilium is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants commonly called Lilies. This detailed engraving shows the blooming flowers and the large richly colored green leaves.
