      [Nuremberg 1767 - A fine print from one of the greatest Nuremberg natural history books: "Delices Physiques Choisies, ou choix de tout ce que les trois regnes de la nature renferment de plus digne des recherches d'un amateur curieux, pour en former un cabinet choisi de curiositez naturelles."? Knorr was one of the leading proto-geologists of the eighteenth century as well as an excellent engraver, painter and art dealer. Born in Nuremberg, he was initially apprenticed to his father's trade of wood turning, but at the age of eighteen became an engraver of copper-plates for Leonhard Blanc, working with Martin Tyroff on the illustrations for Jacob Scheuchzer's Physica Sacra (1731). This work and his acquaintance with J.A. Beurer, a mineralogist-correspondent of the Royal Society, quickened Knorr's interest in natural history. Further stimulus was provided by the wealthy doctor and polymath Christoph Jakob Trew, owner of a menagerie as well as a wide-ranging natural history collection. Trew gathered around him a highly talented group of artists, engravers and scientists, all of whom contributed to making Nuremberg a centre for the publication of top quality large format natural history books. In this stimulating intellectual atmosphere Knorr went on to publish a number of lavish folio volumes, but the present work is his masterpiece. It is also one of the greatest fruits of this flowering of talent in Nuremberg. It acted as a showcase for the talented artists working in the city (most of whom were patronised by Trew). Beautifully designed and executed, the work includes some of the finest natural history plates ever produced. Cf. BM (NH) II, p.998; cf. Landwehr 97 (Dutch edition); Nissen ZBI 2227 & cf. 2229. Fine hand-coloured engraved plate.

        Description, Vertus et Usages de sept cents dix-neuf Plantes, tant étrangères que de nos climats; et de cent trente-quatre animaux, en sept cents trente planches. Gravées en taille-douce, sur les desseins d'après nature, de M. de Garsault, par MM. de Fehrt, Prevost, Duflos, Martinet, &cc. Et rangées suivant l'ordre du livre intitulé Matière Médicale de M. Geoffroy. Ouvrage utile à toutes Matières Médicales, aux Artistes, aux Personnes charitables, & à tous ceux qui préparent eux-mêmes leurs Médicaments.

      - Paris, P. Fr. Didot Le Jeune, 1767. 6 volumes. 8vo (215 x 140 mm). pp. xiv, (2), 472, 20, with 3 engraved titles and 729 engraved plates. Contemporary mottled calf, spines with 5 raised bands, richly gilt ornaments, red and green gilt lettered labels, sides with gilt borders and gilt ornaments at corners. A rare complete set together with the text volume, which is an explanation to the plates. This last volume is lacking in most copies. François Alexandre Pierre de Garsault (1691-1778) was a French botanical artist and naturalist. He wrote several works on horses of which 'Le Nouveau Parfait Maréchal' is best known. The plates of the present work are all engraved by Garsault. "Five volumes of engravings were published by Garsault in June 1764, a volume of text in 1765 (Explication abrégée). The two were reissued in 1767 with the above title. Thellung states that 336 species are provided with binary names, but that 282 specific names are uninomial whereas 71 are polynominal. Thellung, however makes a plea to accept the binary names." (Stafleu & Cowan, listing a wrong number of plates 728!, and stating 'Only one copy seen'). Plates 1-643 depict plants, the remaining zoological matter. A beautifully bound copy.Stafleu & Cowan 1961; Nissen BBI, 687. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Manuscript entitled "Mémoire Présenté à l'Academie Royale des Sciences à Paris au nom du Sieur Schultz, pour indiquer selon ses principes le moyen de trouver la Longitude par mer et par terre"

      Copenhagen, 15 may 1767. (GEOGRAPHY) Folio. 7-1/2pp. in ink, on rectos and versos of 4 leaves, in a secretarial hand., signed "au nom et sur les memoires du Sieur Schultz" by "C. Klinting". Illustrated with 2 pen-and-ink drawings in the text. Sewn into paper wrapper, with remnant of wax seal. Fine. In half green morocco . Submission to the Royal Academy of Science of Schultz's system of measuring longitude on land and on sea, which the author claims to have preceded the method of Pingré by a year: In 1763 "le Sieur Schultz a publié ses idées par un écrit imprimé en Latin et en Allemand" and hopes for a favorable decision by the Academy to help develop his system "au plus grand bien du genre humain, et à l'avantage de la Géographie." The allusion to "Monsieur Pingré" is to the great French astronomer ALEXANDRE-GUY PINGRE (1711-1796), who was at this time a member of the Académie des Sciences in Paris, and whose reputation as a computer of longitudes was already very widespread

Bella legatura in piena pelle con fregi dorati ai piatti e sui tasselli al dorso; autore e indicazione del numero del volume in oro su tassello in rosso. Risguardi marmorizzati, tagli gialli. Ottimo esemplare. Questo esemplare della raccolta di Dorat si caratterizza per la deliberata scelta di non rispettare l’ordine consueto nella successione dei volumi, tanto da lasciare legato al tomo nono un occhiello con la scansione Delalain dell’opera. Cohen-Ricci, p. 307, segnala come capolavori di Marillier in particolare Les baisers e Les Fables, ma la raccolta nel suo complesso offre una preziosa collezione dei migliori illustratori e incisori francesi dell’epoca; che già allora le Fables fossero considerate di gran pregio con le loro oltre 200 incisioni si evince anche dal prezzo indicato nella lista di Delalain: dieci volte superiore a quello degli altri volumi.

        A Voyage round the World, in His Majesty¿s Ship the Dolphin, Commanded by the Honourable Commodore Byron. In which is contained, A faithful Account of the several Places, People, Plants, Animals, & c. seen on the Voyage

      J. and F. Newbery 1767 - First edition of Byron´s voyage around the world. 1767. London. J. and F. Newbery. In 8vo (202 mm x 121 mm). 1 [blank] + 2 nn + 186 + 1 [blank]. Contemporary calf gilt, boards with double gilt fillet, inner dentelle gilt, rebacked preserving spine, red morocco title label, slightly worn with a few pieces missing. Minor spotting and foxing as often, offsetting on folios facing plates, contemporary notes on first blank, else fine. First edition. The voyage was destined mostly to the East Indies, but the true object was to make discoveries in the South Seas -New Albion on the American North West coast amongst other places. Byron (1723 ¿ 1786) sailed in 1764 in the Dolphin with junior officers Charles Clerke and John Gore. Both Clerke and Gore later sailed with James Cook, with Clerke taking command of the final voyage after Cook's death. Byron visited Brazil and then continued south through severe storms and ice for Patagonia and through the Strait of Magellan, relating one of the best accounts of the Strait to date ¿from this part of the voyage; he earned the name 'Foul-Weather Jack'. The expedition was searching for rumored islands and in the process identified a few new off the Falklands before being forced back to the Strait by storms. Ashore in Patagonia, he reported on the eight-foot tall Indians he found there (the famous meeting is shown in the frontispiece), and finally sighted the Falklands. He claimed them for England, unaware that Bougainville had recently claimed them for France. Ignoring his instructions to sail for New Albion, he headed for Juan Fernandez and the Tuamotus, where he discovered Danger Island and others in the Tokelaus and Gilberts before making for the Philippines, Sumatra, Cape of Good Hope and then home to England. Although no significant discoveries were made, thanks to the speed of the voyage, no men were lost to scurvy, the Falklands were secured for England and the Admiralty was stirred to make further exploratory voyages into the South Pacific. Illustrated with a frontispiece ¿A sailor giving a Patagonian Woman some Biscuit for her Child¿ and two more plates. Appended are Byron's notes on the Patagonians and earlier first-hand accounts of them by Magellan, Cavendish and others. The work has often been ascribed to midshipman Charles Clerke. Provenance, Wolfgang A. Herz, ex libris on front pastedown. Sabin, 9732. Hill, 313. Borba de Moraes, I 138. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

RISM BVI p. 701 (no copies recorded in North America). & & Riccati was an Italian mathematician, music theorist, physicist and architect, the first to study the laws of a vibrating membrane.& & "The text of this work is divided into eight 'Schediasmi' and five dissertations. The first are devoted to the proportion between the distension of the cord and the force that it produces, compression of air, the proportion between the force applied to the middle of a stretched cord and the various effects, the vibration of a sonorous cord, the vibration of an aerial cord, the proportions of the cord of a musical instrument, the factors governing the frequency of the vibration generated by a natural or artificial instrument, and the propagation of sound in the air..." & & "Of the five dissertations at the end, the first two discuss the propagation of sound by line and radius from a central source, the first making the assumption that the vibration will remain constant throughout the range and the second assuming that the vibration will decrease as the distance from the source becomes greater. The third dissertation concerns the propagation of sound in spherical sectors. In the fourth dissertation, Riccati presents Euler's formula from his work on the nature of fire, on the means of determining the velocity with which sound is propagated in the air..." & & "The fifth, and final, dissertation is concerned with the hypothesis proposed by Frisi that the vibration is propagated through the air in a wave, the air molecules being set in motion by those already activated; this is in contrast to the notion that all of the air is set in motion simultaneously by the initial sound."

      Published accord[in]g to Act of Parliament, Jan[uar]y 1767., Liverpool, - Large sea chart on six sheets, dissected and mounted on linen, fine original full-wash colour, insets of principal Welsh and Irish ports, large insets of Liverpool, Dublin, and Waterford, inset chart of the Firth of Clyde, dedications to the Lord Commissioners for Trade and Plantations, John Crosbie Major of Liverpool, and John Earl of Bute, within chart. A fine and rare chart of St George's Channel. By the middle of the eighteenth century, the Channel had become one of the busiest waterways in the world, with the ports of Bristol, Liverpool, Dublin and Waterford growing rich on the Atlantic trade in sugar and slaves, and the burgeoning industrial revolution. This beautiful chart "engraved on Six sheets of large Elephant Paper" was at the time of printing the largest and most accurate chart of the St George's Channel. The chart not only contains information on soundings, sand banks, and the times of the tides, but also depicts the defeat of the Francois Thurot, Captain of the 'MarÈchal de Belle-Isle', who had been terrorizing British interests since the start of the Seven Years War. Thurot met his end at the hands of HMS Pallas, HMS Brilliant, and HMS Aeolus, who caught up with him off the northern coast of the Isle of Man; during the action Francois Thurot was killed by a musket ball and his body thrown overboard. Also depicted is the 'Author [Captain Robert Williamson] Ship Wreck't [sic] Jan. 21. 1748 occassioned by the Errors of the Drafts then Extant' at Dundran Bay on the Irish coast. Little is known about the author of the chart, Captain Robert Williamson, save that he was a captain of some considerable experience of St George's Channel; and who saw, from bitter personal experience, the need for its accurate charting. We are only able to trace two institutional examples, one in the British Library and the other in the BibliothËque Nationale de France. BLMC Maps 1104.(6.); BNF Collection d'Anville, 01916 B.

        Taylor County

      AN IMPORTANT TEXAS LAND GRANT 35 ½" x 23 ¾" Texas, without gold mines or fabulous cities, was rich with abundant and affordable pubic land, which attracted a steady stream of visitors during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Lured by the dream of land ownership or profit from land speculation, many left their homelands for the Texas wilderness. It would be difficult to find better illustrations of this migration than the county survey maps charting the boundaries of tracts and names of grantees. These early maps, contemporary with the arrival of new settlers, provide a fascinating visual history of Texas land policy and the settlement of the Lone Star State. While Texas remained a Spanish dominion, land grants were granted to Spanish subjects only. Authority to grant land rested with the viceroy of New Spain in Mexico City until 1767 when the governor of the province of Texas was invested with the authority to issue grants. In 1820 Spain passed a law allowing foreigners to settle in the empire. The government of the now independent Mexico, which controlled the vast public lands of Texas, followed its colonial predecessor's example and in the proceeding years thousands of Anglo Americans undertook the arduous journey across the continent to take advantage of the opportunity to become Texas landowners. Large land grants were also awarded to colony leaders called empresarios, the most famous of whom are probably Moses and his son Stephen Austin. With no central land office, each colony appointed a land commissioner to issue titles to settlers. In 1830 the Mexican congress outlawed further immigration from the United States, sparking the Texas Revolution in the fall of 1835. Upon the establishment of the new Republic in 1836, Texas secured ownership of more than 200 million acres of public land. The Republic of Texas continued the land policies of Spain and Mexico and under its constitution awarded first-class headright to land to all single men and heads of families residing in Texas on March 2, 1836. The first congress of the Republic also established a General Land Office and during the years of independence a total of 36,876,492 acres was parceled out. The pioneers who settled this land helped defend Texan borders from both Indians and Mexico, the latter of which was eager to regain its lands. They also provided valuable tax revenue for the new nation. Texas became the twenty-eighth state of the Union in 1845. With the exception of the thirteen colonies, it is unique among the states because, upon its admittance, it retained its public lands thus providing for its economic strength and success. The new state used some of this land to settle its debts and make public improvements. Under the terms of the Compromise of 1850, Texas ceded its claim to 67 million acres of land to the west and northwest of its current boundaries in exchange for a payment of $10 million. After the settlement of its $7.75 million of debt, Texas used the remainder of the payment to establish a permanent school fund, build a new capitol and governor's mansion, and create a hospital for the mentally ill. The settlement of this public land remained an important part of state policy. Many of the Spanish community property and homestead laws were retained through the era of Mexican rule and the republican period and remained in practice after Texas became a state. Among these, property was exempt from forced sale and land grants extended only as far as the riverbank and not to the middle of the stream, as dictated by Anglo-Saxon common law. Th. Book.

        Die trauernde Freundschaft - Erinnerungen an den Tod der Tochter des Generals Stanwick.

      1767. Radierung, 1767, auf Bütten. 22,2:16 cm. Sehr guter Druck mit Rändchen, alt montiert und minimal gebräunt. Literatur: Andresen 20, II, mit dem Verlegernamen und Datum: John Boydell, excudit 1781; Nagler 2; Manners/Williamson (21); Boerner 1979, 19 (hier: I v. II); Baumgärtel Diss. 1990, S. 243 f., Abb. 46, Nr. 297 (hier: I-II); Ausst. Katalog: Retrospektive Angelika Kauffmann. Hrsg. u. bearb. von B. Baumgärtel. Düsseldorf, Kunstmuseum, 1999, Nr. 254 mit Abb. (II v. II).. "Die Frau an der Urne gehört zu den beliebtesten Topoi des empfindsamen Klassizismus. Am Thema der Frau mit Gefäß wurde die Frage der Tugend oder Untugend abgehandelt, letzteres exemplarisch an Greuzes (1725-1805), Der zerbrochene Krug, ersteres vielfach in der Darstellung der trauernden Agrippa mit der Urne des Germanicus, der Andromache am Grab des Hektor oder der Kleopatra am Grab des Marcus Antonius... Mit dem allegorisierenden Memorialbild auf den Tod der Tochter Stanwicks schuf Kauffmann eine ganz eigenständige Ikonographie, indem sie das Symbol des Todes, die Urne, mit der Muse der Freundschaft zu einem natürlichen Sinnbild der trauernden Freundschaft verdichtet." (zit. aus: Ausst. Katalog Düsseldorf, 1999, S. 415). Die Tochter des Generals Stanwick war bei einem Schiffsunglück ums Leben gekommen. 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.
