        John Quincy Adams' Free Frank with Notation of Land Patent

      - Free Frank of John Quincy Adams as Secretary of State, One of America’s Greatest Diplomats JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1767-1848), son of President John Adams and Abigail Adams, became the 6th President of the United States. He also served as a United States Senator, a member of the House of Representatives and Secretary of State. Adams was a member of the Federalist, Democratic-Republican, National Republican and later the Anti-Masonic and Whig parties. Adams played an important role in negotiating key treaties, as a diplomat, most notably the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the War of 1812. As Secretary of State, he negotiated with Britain over the United States’ northern border with Canada, negotiated with Spain the annexation of Florida and drafted the Monroe Doctrine. Historians generally concur he was one of the greatest diplomats and secretaries of state in American history. Adams was elected president in a close and controversial four-way contest in 1824. As president, he sought to modernize the American economy and promote education. He enacted part of his agenda and paid off much of the national debt. But he was stymied by a Congress controlled by opponents and his lack of patronage networks helped politicians sabotage him. He lost his 1828 bid for re-election to Andrew Jackson. After his presidency, Adams was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1830. He had a revulsion against slavery and predicted the Union’s dissolution over slavery. He felt the president could abolish slavery by using his war powers. Offering his bold J.Q. Adams free frank on the front panel, 3

        Picturae Etruscorum in vasculis nunc primum in unum collectae, explicationibus, et dissertaionibus inlustrate .

      J. Zempel Rome -1775 1767 - First edition. 3 volumes, folio (45.5 x 29.8 cm), 3 half-titles, 3 engraved frontispieces, titles printed in red and black with engraved vignette, engraved initials, head and tailpieces, woodcut illustrations, engraved dedication leaf in volumes 2 and 3, 301 engraved plates (some double-page), 3 woodcut plates in volume 3, contemporary half pink vellum with patterned paper boards, spines gilt in compartments, uncut, some light foxing and browning, side lightly rubbed, a very good example. Passeri (1694-1780) was a respected antiquarian who primarily focused on Etruscan civilisation. This work was one of many published in the eighteenth century which saw the Etruscans as pioneers, artists and inventors whose achievements were overshadowed by the Romans. Passeri also contributes in this work to contemporary discussion on the Etruscan and Oscan languages. The three volumes illustrate vases from important collections all over Italy. Many of these vases were housed in the Galleria Clementina of the Vatican Library. Many of the vases illustrated in this work have been lost, making this publication a valuable record. A pupil of Domenichino, Passeri is first recorded as a practising artist in 1634, when he was working, together with Giovanni Angelo Canini (1617–c.1666), at the Villa Aldobrandini, Frascati. In 1638 he was admitted to the Accademia di S Luca (succeeding Domenichino as President in 1663), and in 1641 he became a member of the Virtuosi del Pantheon. In 1661 he executed frescoes in the Palazzo Pamphili, Rome, and in September 1665 he was paid by the Costaguti family for an altarpiece of the Crucifixion for their church at Roccalvecce, near Viterbo.

        SOUTH CHINA SEA / KARIMATA ISLANDS, INDONESIA: A CHART OF SOME ISLANDS BETWEEN BORNEO AND BANCA, SEEN BY THE OSTERLY IN HER PASSAGE OUTWARD AND HOMEWARD, 1758 & 1759. TAKEN ON THE SPOT BY MR. JOHN POWELL, CHIEF MATE OF THE OSTERLY.

      London, []. 1767 - Copper engraving (Good, strong engraving impression and full blank margins; a clean 10 cm tear entering image, but without loss and scarcely any effect upon the chart’s appearance, now closed from verso; a few small tears in blank margins, now closed from verso), sheet: 63.5 x 45.5 cm (25 x 18 inches); platemark: 59.5 x 37.5 cm (23.5 x 15 inches). A very rare sea chart of the South China Sea around the Karimata Islands, just the west of Borneo, based on an original manuscript made by the master of the ‘HMS Osterly’ during the Seven Years’ War, published by William Herbert. This very rare and fine sea chart depicts a track of the South China Sea, located between Sumatra and Borneo, focusing on the Karimata Islands. It is based on an original manuscript by John Powell, the Chief Mate of the HMS Osterly, a Royal Nay vessel that traversed these waters in 1758-9, during the Seven Years’ War. The chart was first published by William Herbert within the third edition of his very rare sea atlas, A New Directory of the East Indies (London, 1767). While these waters lay near one of the world’s great shipping routes, which ran through the Strait of Sunda up through the South China Sea, connecting Europe with the Far East, the area was, until this time, not well charted. While the Dutch East India Company (VOC) had a fine knowledge of the seas between Sumatra and Borneo, its policies of cartographic secrecy ensured that their knowledge was generally omitted from printed maps. Indeed, during the era of the Seven Years’ War (1756-63), when there was a spike in British maritime traffic in the region, the British found they possessed a very poor knowledge of this section of the South China Sea, let alone any useful charts. The HMS Osterly, travelling to and from Canton, China in 1758-9 had occasion to traverse these waters, the tracks of which are delineated on the present chart. The vessel’s Chief Master, John Powell, drafted the first detailed British chart of the region. Fortunately, the Osterly’s voyage is well recorded, as Powell’s original log, running from December 30, 1757 to February 26, 1760, is today preserved in the National Archives U.K. (ADM 55/145).

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD IN HIS MAJESTY'S SHIP THE DOLPHIN, COMMANDED BY THE HONOURABLE COMMODORE BYRON.By an Officer on Board the Said Ship.

      London: J. Newberry, 1767. - [4],186,[2,publisher's ads]pp. plus three plates (including frontis). Contemporary calf, rebacked, with original gilt spine label. Some wear to extremities. Later bookplate on front pastedown. Hinges repaired, gutters of first handful of leaves repaired, light occasional foxing. Good. One of the most celebrated of all voyages, Byron's adventure on the Dolphin began under a cloud of secrecy designed to conceal the purpose of his voyage from Spain. The entire crew was led to believe their destination was the East Indies, and it was not until the ship had left Rio (where it was refitted) that the true mission was revealed: a voyage of discovery to the South Seas. To avoid mutiny, he granted his men double pay, and with renewed enthusiasm they set course for the Pacific. This account of the Straits of Magellan is one of the best to that time, though its famed map did not appear until the first Spanish edition of 1769. Byron's circumnavigation is noted for its speed, just over twenty-months, and this account for its discussion of the "Patagonian Giants," depicted in two of the plates and discussed in the text. "Byron passed through the Straits without incident. Having reached the Pacific he succeeded in discovering islands and coral reefs, and returned to England without losing one member of his crew, a rare event in those days. This account of the voyage became famous because of its description of Patagonian giants. These giants were first observed by the crew of Magellan's fleet, and other authors refer to them, but as the travellers of the nineteenth century were unable to encounter them, their existence came to be considered a fable or optical illusion. What impresses the reader of Byron's book, however, is the tone of veracity in the description of these very tall men whom the crew observed at close range, and with whom they had some contact" - Borba de Moraes. Borba de Moraes attributes this book to Byron, but he was not the author. Although not proven, some (including Hill) have attributed this work to Charles Clerke, who later served with Cook on all three of his voyages to the Pacific. Scarce. BORBA DE MORAES, pp.138-39.

This account of the Straits of Magellan is one of the best to that time, though its famed map did not appear until the first Spanish edition of 1769. Byron's circumnavigation is noted for its speed, just over twenty-months, and this account for its discussion of the "Patagonian Giants," depicted in two of the plates and discussed in the text. "Byron passed through the Straits without incident. Having reached the Pacific he succeeded in discovering islands and coral reefs, and returned to England without losing one member of his crew, a rare event in those days. This account of the voyage became famous because of its description of Patagonian giants. These giants were first observed by the crew of Magellan's fleet, and other authors refer to them, but as the travellers of the nineteenth century were unable to encounter them, their existence came to be considered a fable or optical illusion. What impresses the reader of Byron's book, however, is the tone of veracity in the description of these very tall men whom the crew observed at close range, and with whom they had some contact" - Borba de Moraes. Borba de Moraes attributes this book to Byron, but he was not the author. Although not proven, some (including Hill) have attributed this work to Charles Clerke, who later served with Cook on all three of his voyages to the Pacific. Scarce. BORBA DE MORAES, pp.138-39.

La santé de ce naturaliste péruvien devenait "fort chacelante" et, devant retourner au Pérou "pour des affaires de famille", il décida de vendre sa collection. Son souhait fut de trouver un amateur qui voudrait bien en faire l'acquisition globale. Il le trouva en la personne de M. de Montribloud. Bon exemplaire en dépit de la dorure des dos légèrement usée

Le tome II commence à la pagination xx, sans manque et conformément aux exemplaires détenus par la National Libray of Scotland, et par la Zoological Society of London. Bon exemplaire. Gmelin, en tant que botaniste et chimiste de l'Académie des sciences, fut envoyé à la découverte de la Sibérie par l'impératrice Anne avec de nombreux autres scientifiques dans le cadre d'un vaste projet gouvernemental d'exploration, et les voyages se firent entre 1733 et 1743. Keralio, dans une intéressante préface, notamment sur la déformation des noms russes, avoue avoir délibérément réduit l'original à 2 volumes, le journal exaustif de l'auteur étalé sur 10 années étant très rébarbatif, il s'est donc concentré sur les descriptions et tout ce qui attrait au voyage lui-même (mines, peuples, moeurs, nourriture...) en classant le voyage par chapitres explicatifs, les thèmes pouvant ainsi être facilement retrouvés par la table. Le voyage est complété par une histoire des navigations et découvertes des Russes dans la mer glaciale et spetentrionnal du sud (Kamchatka), avec les navigations de Bering. L'ouvrage constitue sans conteste un source très précieuse d'informations sur la Sibérie.

        The Sale of Authors, a Dialogue, in Imitation of Lucian's Sale of Philosophers.

      Printed, and sold by the Booksellers in London and Westminster. 1767. 1767 xvi, 200, 209-250, [2]pp ads. 12mo. BOUND WITH: Lexiphanes, a Dialogue. Imitated from Lucian, and suited to the present times. Being an attempt to restore the English tongue to its ancient purity, and to correct, as well as expose, the affected style, hard words, and absurd phraseology of many late writers, and particularly of our English Lexiphanes, the Rambler. The second edition, corrected. Printed for J. Knox. 1767. xxxix, [1], 185, [3]pp ads. 12mo. 2 vols in 1 in full contemporary calf, raised & gilt banded spine, red morocco label; some insect damage to upper board, v. sl. wear to head of spine. From the library of Douglas Grant.ESTC T96628 & ESTC T94504. First editions. In the dedication to Lexiphanes, Campbell, a purser aboard a man-of-war, records that 'during a long voyage at sea, when I had access to no other English books but what I had been long acquainted and very familiar with, excepting the Ramblers which happened accidentally to be on board, in order to divert the idle and solitary hours unavoidable in that sort of life, I was in a manner obliged to read them, which accordingly I did with great care and attention. I immediately perceived, and was forceably struck with the strong resemblance there subsists between Mr J-n's character, and that of the Limousin scholar in Rabelais, and of Lexiphanes in Lucian. And I concluded, that an imitation of the latter would be admirably suited to expose that false taste and ridiculous manner of writing'. Both Lexiphanes and The Sale of Authors were written during a short stay at Pensacola, but remained in manuscript for some two years, until Campbell returned to England. His satire on Johnson was issued anonymously in March 1767, and attributed by Hawkins to Kenrick. The Sale of Authors followed in June, in which the 'sweetly plaintive Gray' was put up to auction, along with Sterne, Hervey, Lloyd, &c.

        Bélisaire.

      Chez Merlin, 1767. First edition, early state, featuring the frontispiece and three copper-engraved plates designed by Gravelot. Quickly translated into numerous languages following its initial publication, Marmontel's controversial philosophical novel was written in great part in the hope that its retelling of the story of Gen. Flavius Beisarius of the Byzantine Empire would convince Louis XV to become, himself, the longed-for Philosopher-King. Chapter 15, however, in which Marmontel advocates freedom of opinion and religious tolerance, inspired extensive commentary by Voltaire and others and brought on condemnation by both the Sorbonne and the Archbishop of Paris -- though it may ultimately have helped the Huguenot cause. Merlin also printed a duodecimo edition in 1767; in the present edition, "Fragmens de philosophie morale" is found on pp. 273-340, followed by the Addition and Approbation. Provenance: Front pastedown with large, round, gilt-stamped armorial leather bookplate of notable 19th-century book collector Edward Hailcrone; smaller, round, cream-colored leather gilt-stamped "I.T." bookplate with motto "Inter folia fructus" of 19th-century bookseller and bookcollector James Toovey; and paper bookplate of Sir Montague Shearman. Binding: Contemporary crimson morocco, covers framed in gilt triple fillets; spine gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather labels, board edges and turn-ins with gilt rolls. This volume (complete in itself) seems at one time to have been part of a set of Marmontel's works, and bears an (unnumbered) spine label reading "Oeuvres de Marmontel."

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD IN HIS MAJESTY'S SHIP THE DOLPHIN, COMMANDED BY THE HONOURABLE COMMODORE BYRON...By an Officer on Board the Said Ship

      London: J. Newberry, 1767. [4],186,[2,publisher's ads]pp. plus three plates (including frontis). Contemporary calf, rebacked, with original gilt spine label. Some wear to extremities. Later bookplate on front pastedown. Hinges repaired, gutters of first handful of leaves repaired, light occasional foxing. Good. One of the most celebrated of all voyages, Byron's adventure on the Dolphin began under a cloud of secrecy designed to conceal the purpose of his voyage from Spain. The entire crew was led to believe their destination was the East Indies, and it was not until the ship had left Rio (where it was refitted) that the true mission was revealed: a voyage of discovery to the South Seas. To avoid mutiny, he granted his men double pay, and with renewed enthusiasm they set course for the Pacific. This account of the Straits of Magellan is one of the best to that time, though its famed map did not appear until the first Spanish edition of 1769. Byron's circumnavigation is noted for its speed, just over twenty-months, and this account for its discussion of the "Patagonian Giants," depicted in two of the plates and discussed in the text. "Byron passed through the Straits without incident. Having reached the Pacific he succeeded in discovering islands and coral reefs, and returned to England without losing one member of his crew, a rare event in those days. This account of the voyage became famous because of its description of Patagonian giants. These giants were first observed by the crew of Magellan's fleet, and other authors refer to them, but as the travellers of the nineteenth century were unable to encounter them, their existence came to be considered a fable or optical illusion. What impresses the reader of Byron's book, however, is the tone of veracity in the description of these very tall men whom the crew observed at close range, and with whom they had some contact" - Borba de Moraes. Borba de Moraes attributes this book to Byron, but he was not the author. Although not proven, some (including Hill) have attributed this work to Charles Clerke, who later served with Cook on all three of his voyages to the Pacific. Scarce. BORBA DE MORAES, pp.138-39.

        Reliques of Ancient English Poetry...

      London: J. Dodsley, 1767. Three volumes, octavo, engraved frontispiece and titles, two other textual engravings; an attractive set with contemporary ownership inscriptions, contemporary calf, spines banded and gilt, red morocco labels. Second edition, expanded, of this celebrated collection. Samuel Johnson is known to have encouraged Percy in his work, and even to have contributed material to the volumes.Percy's anthology invigorated interest in early English poetry, and was a benchmark of its kind, influencing any number of later poets including Wordsworth and Coleridge. Percy gathered most of the material in this work from the 'Percy Folio', now in the British Museum. Famously, Percy saved the manuscript when he found it 'being used by the Maids to light the Fire'. Its influence had an avowed impact on Coleridge and Wordsworth, amongst others. Two joints cracked and chipped at head of spines.
