        La Henriade and Collection Complete des Oeuvres de Mr. de Voltaire.

      Geneve, 1768. From the library of Principis de Colloredo Mannsfeld, with the noble coat of arms bookplate. Quarto, bound in full marbled boards, leather label to the front and rear panel, portrait of Voltaire and Henry IV, various illustrations throughout, frontispiece, matching slipcase. Contains the works of Voltaire, including La Henriade. La Henriade is an epic poem written by the French Enlightenment writer and philosopher Voltaire. According to Voltaire himself, the poem concerns and was written in honor of the life of Henry IV of France, and is a celebration of his life. The ostensible subject is the siege of Paris in 1589 by Henry III in consort with Henry of Navarre, soon to be Henry IV, but its themes are the twin evils of religious fanaticism and civil discord. It also concerns the political state of France. Voltaire aimed to be the French Virgil, outdoing the master by preserving Aristotelian unity of place--a property of classical tragedy rather than epic--by keeping the human action confined between Paris and Ivry.

Jöcher/A. I, 1469). - A few Hebrew interspersions. Slightly browned throughout due to paper; binding somewhat rubbed (especially the gilt spine).

      (Napoli, 1768). Folio. Bound uncut in a magnificent recent sprinkled full calf pastiche-binding with seven raised bands, forming eight compartments. Two leather title-labels to spine and compartments and raised bands with gilt ornamentation. All edges of boards with blindstamped decorations. One text leaf (unnumbered, but no. 38) with small stain and one diagram with tiny hole measureing 1 cm2, both far from affecting text/plate, very light soiling to first two leaves. All in all a very fine, clean an attractive copy. Complete with 39 ff of text [Italian and Latin in parallel columns], 69 plates of views and diagrams of which three are double page and one folded, a beautiful panorama depicting the Bay of Pozzuoli ('Veduta della Costa di Pozzuoli'). The rare first edition of Paoli's masterpiece of 18th century Italian chalcography with both text and views in beautiful steel engraved plates. The systematic documentation of classical ancient Greek and Roman ruins, many of which are here depicted for the very first time, is considered the most important eighteenth century views of Pozzuoli and its surroundings. The engravings are by Giovanni Volpato, Antoine Cardon, Francesco La Marra, and Johann Dominik Fiorillo based on drawings by local artists such as Gianbattista Natali, Tommaso Rojola, Ricciarelli and Magri. Conte Felice Gazzola commissioned the present work and when published, it was printed in very few copies only and sold for 15 Neapolitan ducats. A second edition in folio-oblong was printed in 1769.Pozzuoli, located just north of Naples, began as a Greek colony and a Roman colony was established in 194 BC. Pozzuoli (at the time named Puteoli) was the great emporium for the Alexandrian grain ships and other ships from all over the Roman world. It was also the main hub for goods exported from Campania, including blown glass, mosaics, wrought iron, and marble. The Roman naval base at nearby Misenum housed the largest naval fleet in the ancient world. It was also the site of the Roman Dictator Sulla's country villa and the place where he died in 78 BC - the ruins of many of these sights are portrayed in the present work. Paolo Antonio Paoli, president of the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy in Rome (1775-98), was a pioneering scholar and historian of the ancient civilizations of the region of Campania in southern Italy.

      Muller, America 344; Sabin 67626; WorldCat (7 copies). First edition of the Dutch translation of Ramel's account describing his escape from the penal colonies in Guiana. Jean-Pierre Ramel (1768-1815), officer in the French revolutionary army, was accused of royalist sympathies and consequently deported to the penal colonies in 1797, together with Jean-Charles Pichegru, François-Marie Barthelemy, François Aubry, Jean-Baptiste Dossonville, and others. In 1798, during a long and exhausting night, the prisoners managed to escape to Paramaribo, Surinam, from where they travelled back to Europe. In 1799 Ramel was given permission to return to France, where he served in the army under Rochambeau. After the Bourbon Restoration, he received the order of Saint Louis and was made "maréchal de camp". During the Second Restoration, however, Ramel was suspected of being loyal to Napoleon, which led to his assassination by reactionaries in 1815.Slightly browned with some occasional foxing. Spine slightly worn and discoloured. A very good copy, wholly untrimmed and in the original publisher's printed paper board wrappers.

      London: printed for J. Robson, Bookseller to the Princess Dowager of Wales, at the Feathers, in New Bond Street, , MDCCLXVIII [1768]. First Edition. Paper-Covered Boards. Near Fine+. Small 8vo: [2],iv,4,[2],249,[13]pp (pp.44-45 and 81-96 misnumbered 45-46 and 77-92 respectively; this copy, as most, bound without the 17 plates).

Bree (1786–1863), vicar of All Saints' church in Allesley, reaffixed to front paste down. An excellent copy in a new binding, the text block generally clean and bright with just occasional minor smudges and handling marks. Barbier, pp. 24-27. Published anonymously (Gilpin's authorship was only revealed with the third edition, in 1781) as the first standard guide on print collecting in England, reaching a fifth edition in 1802. On the continent its influence spread through German, French and Dutch translations. Gilpin's "aim, as the title-page indicates, was to outline ‘the Principles of picturesque Beauty, the Different Kinds of Prints, and the Characters of the most noted Masters’. . . . The Essay defines ‘picturesque’ as ‘a term expressive of that peculiar kind of beauty, which is agreeable in a picture’ (Essay on Prints, 2), but does not develop the definition." (ODNB) Among prints singled out for detailed consideration are Salvator Rosa's "Death of Polycrates," Waterloo’s "Tobias," and Hogarth’s "Rake’s Progress." Finally, the collector is "cautioned against indulging a desire of becoming possessed of all the works of any master. . . . against a superstitious veneration for names. . . . [against] making the public taste our standard. . . [against] rat[ing prints'] value by their scarceness. . . [against] buying copies for originals," and against] acquiring poor impressions. N. B.

        Abrégé chronologique de l'histoire ottomane

      Chez Vincent 1768 - - Chez Vincent, à Paris 1768, pet. in 8 (10,5x17,5cm), xxiij, 694pp. (8) et (4) 786pp; (1), 2 volumes reliés. - Edition originale. Reliures en pleine basane blonde marbré d'époque. Dos à nerfs ornés de filets. Pièces de titre de maroquin rouge, et de tomaison de maroquin noir. Coiffes arasées. Frottements. Pâles rousseurs éparses. Bon exemplaire. L'introduction narre l'histoire des anciens Turcs jusqu'à la fondation de l'Empire Ottoman. Parallèlement à l'histoire ottomane, et même souvent en regard, le livre donne l'histoire des princes contemporains d'Europe de l'Est (Hongrie, Pologne, Russie) et d'Asie. Ils feraient effectivement tous partie d'une même souche, de mêmes origines, Tartares et Huns. En outre, des tableaux permettent d'embrasser l'histoire de l'Europe, des Turcs et de l'Asie. Dans sa courte préface, l'auteur se défend de toute sécheresse, ayant ponctué ses récits de notes et d'anecdotes sur les mœurs et les coutumes, et tâchant de rendre l'accumulation de faits et événements sous la forme de récits. En annexe une explications des mots turcs usités dans l'ouvrage. En bref, une compilation judicieuse et précise, cherchant à embrasser l'histoire d'un peuple et sa place dans l'histoire du monde. La juxtaposition des histoires contemporaines permet d'aborder une certaine compréhension de la marche d'un peuple lié étroitement à ses souverains. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition. Bindings in full blond marble blond contemporary. Back with nerves adorned with nets. Red morocco, and black morocco. Shaped heads. Friction. Good copy. The introduction tells the story of the ancient Turks until the founding of the Ottoman Empire. Parallel to Ottoman history, and even often opposite, the book gives the history of the contemporary princes of Eastern Europe (Hungary, Poland, Russia) and Asia. They would all be part of the same stock, of the same origin, Tartars and Huns. In addition, paintings enable us to embrace the history of Europe, the Turks and Asia. In his short preface, the author defends himself from all dryness, having punctuated his accounts of notes and anecdotes on manners and customs, and endeavoring to render the accumulation of facts and events in the form of narratives. Attached is an explanation of the Turkish words used in the book. In short, a judicious and precise compilation, seeking to embrace the history of a people and its place in the history of the world. The juxtaposition of contemporary histories makes it possible to approach a certain understanding of the march of a people tied closely to its sovereigns. xxiij, 694pp. (8) et (4) 786pp; (1) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Containing, I. His Conferences with Those who found him out; to whom he recites the most material Circumstances of his Life; as, that he was born in the Parish of St. Giles, educated by the charitable Contribution of a Lady, and put ’prentice to a Locksmith. II. How he left his Master, and was taken up with a notorious House-Breaker, who was hanged; how, after his Escape, he went to Sea a Cabin-Boy, married a famous whore, listed himself a common Soldier, turned Singing-Master, and married three Wives, for which he was tried and condemned at the Old Baily.

(Gove) 12mo: xii,263,[1]pp (wanting one quire; pp 83-86 provided in excellent facsimile on old paper), with hand-colored frontispiece and map. The final page is signed "Ed Dorrington," an invention of the publisher. Later quarter calf over marbled paper-covered boards, marbled end papers. Near Fine or better, light finger-soiling and occasional small stain to text, manuscripts ex-libris to end papers and title page, otherwise excellent. Negley 1462. Gove, The Imaginary Voyage, pp.262-68. Cox II, p.479 (citing Dorrington as author). Charming hand-colored edition of this popular tale relating a fictitious British hermit's escape from apprenticeship and subsequent life on a deserted island off the Pacific coast of Mexico. The book remained anonymous until Arundell Esdaile discovered a rare edition of 1727 in which the dedication is signed Peter Longueville, to whom the work is now attributed. Gove cites a number of literary allusions, attesting to the tale's popularity. Among these are George Crabbe, ranking it with the Bible and Pilgrim's Progress for a place in rural homes, and Dickens, in Martin Chuzzlewit, in which John Westlock complains that his chambers are "nothing but . . . the sort of impromptu arrangement that might have suggested themselves to Philip Quarll or Robinson Crusoe." See also Gove, quoting Bonner, that the author "transferred many passages unblushingly from Dampier [A New Voyage Round the World]."

        An account of Corsica, the journal of a tour to that island; and memoirs of Pascal Paoli. By James Boswell, Esq; Illustrated with a new and accurate map of Corsica [Hand-Colored]

      Glasgow: printed by Robert and Andrew Foulis for Edward and Charles Dilly in the Poultry, London, 1768. First Edition. Mottled Calf. Fine/`. First Edition of Boswell's first important work, which launched his career and catapulted him to fame. Demy 8vo: xxi,[3],382pp, with final blank and large folding map of Corsica by Thomas Phinn in contemporary hand-color (second state, as per Rothschild, with imprint but without scale of miles, nor division of the margins into degrees, and placed before A1). Armorial bookplate of Westport House, County Mayo, Ireland, the Browne family crest. One of 3500 copies printed, among which are many variants (some described in Tinker), which may be found in any combination. In our copy, complete with "the very rare half-title" (Rothschild), the table of contents (b2) follows the preface (a3-b1); D2 recto is in Rothschild’s first state, with the words "John Home" incorrectly placed following the first quotation on p. 51; E2 and Z3 are cancellanses, with "Mariani" spelled correctly (line 24, p. 357). Pottle additional misprints are also present: "141" for "241" in table of contents; broken "E" in "Etruscans" on p. 70, line 17; "feelirg" on p. 137, line 11; "tha the" on p. 172, line 9; "Montgomerÿ" on p. 184, line 4; "speculati-ions" on p. 327, lines 9-10; pp. 93 and 296 are correctly printed (the last words of line 6, p.93, are "prince of" and of line 18, p.296, "of my own"). Full contemporary mottled calf, green morocco lettering piece, all edges stained green, plain period end papers. A superb copy with the magnificent map of Corsica in rare hand-color; foxing to end papers and several quires, a few occasional minor stains, but withal fine. Tinker Library 318. Cox I p. 138. Gaskell (Foulis) 473. NCBEL II 1211. Pottle 24. Rothschild 442. Lowndes 242 ("first and uncastrated edition"). Boswell was a staunch supporter of the Corsican Republic: he took such "childish pleasure in being the chief sponsor of this wild island struggling to become a nation," that, for Garrick's anniversary celebration in honor of Shakespeare, in 1769, he dressed as a Corsican chief. (Cox). "Following the island's invasion by France, in 1768, Boswell attempted to raise public awareness and rally support for the Corsicans. He sent arms and money to the Corsican fighters, and made an arduous and dangerous journey to Corsica to meet General Pasquale Paoli, leader of the insurgents seeking the island's independence from the Genoese. Paoli at first suspected [Boswell] was a spy, but quickly came to like his improbable young visitor, saw an opportunity for promotion of the Corsican cause in Britain, and consented to a series of interviews. . . . With its reports of the gallant islanders and a Plutarchan depiction of Paoli paralleled with several classical heroes, [An Account of Corsica] was an immediate success. The work was widely read and translated [the first edition of 3500 copies was sold out within six weeks, and a second edition (also of 3500 copies) was ready a month or so later], stimulated great interest in Paoli and the Corsican cause, brought its author wide fame in Britain and Europe, and found an interested readership among the Americans. It attracted the notice of the French government (which had a translation made), and though Boswell's ambition for British intervention was not to be fulfilled, he probably influenced Britain's decision to send secret supplies of arms to the Corsicans." (ODNB) An ironic consequence of Paoli's ultimate defeat was that one of the first babies born under the new French jurisdiction was Napoleon Bonaparte, son of Paoli’s adjutant. "The Account of Corsica was the book of the hour. Many more copies of it were sold in Boswell's lifetime than either of his great works in the biography of Johnson, and it achieved abroad a much more remarkable success." (Pottle) N. B.

Even though the plates are mentioned in the preface of the text volume, they are rarely found together. All the plates are brightly coloured and remarkably fresh and lively, evoking the beauty of the African landscape and the culture of the Xhosa. Lodewyk Alberti (1768-1812) came to the Netherlands in 1784 as lieutenant in the Dutch army, and left for the Cape in 1802. He successfully kept the peace between Xhosas, Khoisan and European colonists, but conflicts flared up soon after he left in 1806. He describes the situation and climate of Caffria, as well as the appearance and physical strength of the Xhosa, but mainly focuses on their culture.Ad 1: small tear in the text leaf of atlas, but restored, plates fine except for a tiny blemish on the first plate; ad 2: slightly browned, and recased, as noted; ad 3; some sentences marked in pencil the margins and an occasional annotation, plates slightly browned and binding rubbed along the extremities. Very good set.

(1p.) et (1f. priv.) 337 pp. et (1f.) (2f. de faux-titre et titre) 280pp., deux volumes reliés. - The first edition, frontispiece by de Sève engraved by de Launay and 180 plates (with numerous life-size figures) admirably rendered after drawings by Claude Aubriet, Madeleine-Françoise Basseporte engraved by Catherine Haussard, Charles Milsan, Herisset, and so on. Two bound volumes. Contemporary light brown speckled calf. Spine in six compartments with frames and gilt fleurons, title and volume labels in light brown and red morocco. Covers with gilt triple fillet frame. Large gilt dentelle frame inside covers. Double gilt fillets to edges of covers, all edges gilt. Discreet and skillful repairs to head and foot of joints and head- and tail-pieces. A few pages lightly and uniformly browned, but otherwise a very good and fresh copy with good margins. This remarkable and very notable work stands out in two respects : firstly, that of the illustrations, which are very finely executed and secondly, the fundamental theoretical work of Duhamel du Monceau. It served as reference work and manual, the author demarcating the differences between gardeners' varieties and naturalists' classifications. In his Treatise on Forests, Duhamel had already used the methods applied to fruit trees (replanting, pruning, and so on) to increase the number of species and preserve forests; methods he had spent a great deal of time experimenting with on his family estates, along with his brother. The engravings show only table fruits, along with a number of grafts and cuts. Almost 250 kinds of fruit are thus described (pears, prunes, apples, cherries, grapes, and so on). The work was done with the help of the Abbé Le Berriays, who provided a little over a third of the illustrations and a significant portion of the text. It's worth remembering that to all intents and purposes Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau is considered the founder of modern agronomy, being the first to describe and theorize the way that trees develop.  - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale illustrée d'un frontispice par de Sève gravé par de Launay et de 180 planches (avec de nombreuses figures) grandeur nature et admirablement exécutées d'après les dessins de Claude Aubriet, de Madeleine-Françoise Basseporte et gravées par Catherine Haussard, Charles Milsan, Herisset...

Triples filets dorés en encadrement des plats. Large dentelle dorée en encadrement des contreplats. Doubles filets dorés sur les coupes. Toutes tranches dorées. Discrètes et habiles restaurations au niveau des mors et des coiffes de tête et de queue. Quelques pages très légèrement et uniformément brunies, sinon très bel exemplaire à toutes marges d'une grande fraîcheur. Ce très remarquable et fort célèbre ouvrage se signale de deux points de vue ; celui de l'illustration, d'une grande finesse d'exécution, et celui du travail théorique fondamental de Duhamel du Monceau, qui servit de référence et de manuel, l'auteur marquant la différence entre les variétés des jardiniers et les classifications des naturalistes. Dans son Traité des forêts, Duhamel avait déjà employé les méthodes appliquées aux arbres fruitiers (repiquage, reboutage...) pour multiplier les espèces et sauver les forêts ; méthodes qu'il expérimenta longuement dans son domaine familial en compagnie de son frère. Les gravures représentent exclusivement des fruits de table, ainsi que de nombreux modèles de greffe et de taille. Près de 250 espèces de fruits sont ainsi décrites (poires, prunes, pommes, cerises, raisins...). L'ouvrage fut réalisé avec la collaboration de l'abbé Le Berriays qui apporta un peu plus d'un tiers des dessins ainsi qu'une grande partie du texte. On rappellera, à toutes fins utiles qu'on considère Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau comme le fondateur de l'agronomie moderne, car il fut le premier à décrire et théoriser le mode de développement des arbres.

        Abrégé chronologique de l'histoire ottomane

      first edition. Bindings in full blond marble blond contemporary. Back with nerves adorned with nets. Red morocco, and black morocco. Shaped heads. Friction. Good copy. The introduction tells the story of the ancient Turks until the founding of the Ottoman Empire. Parallel to Ottoman history, and even often opposite, the book gives the history of the contemporary princes of Eastern Europe (Hungary, Poland, Russia) and Asia. They would all be part of the same stock, of the same origin, Tartars and Huns. In addition, paintings enable us to embrace the history of Europe, the Turks and Asia. In his short preface, the author defends himself from all dryness, having punctuated his accounts of notes and anecdotes on manners and customs, and endeavoring to render the accumulation of facts and events in the form of narratives. Attached is an explanation of the Turkish words used in the book. In short, a judicious and precise compilation, seeking to embrace the history of a people and its place in the history of the world. The juxtaposition of contemporary histories makes it possible to approach a certain understanding of the march of a people tied closely to its sovereigns. Chez Vincent àParis 1768 pet. in 8 (10,5x17,5cm) xxiij, 694pp. (8) et (4) 786pp; (1) 2 volumes reliés

      Bobins collection 68; Gay 3153 (text only); Mendelssohn I, p. 17-18; Landwehr, Coloured plates 217-218. Very rare album with four beautiful hand-coloured aquatint views to Alberti's ethnographic monograph on the Xhosa people ("Kaffers"), of South Africa, together with both the first edition, in Dutch, as the first edition of the French translation of this monograph. Even though the plates are mentioned in the preface of the text volume, they are rarely found together. All the plates are brightly coloured and remarkably fresh and lively, evoking the beauty of the African landscape and the culture of the Xhosa. Lodewyk Alberti (1768-1812) came to the Netherlands in 1784 as lieutenant in the Dutch army, and left for the Cape in 1802. He successfully kept the peace between Xhosas, Khoisan and European colonists, but conflicts flared up soon after he left in 1806. He describes the situation and climate of Caffria, as well as the appearance and physical strength of the Xhosa, but mainly focuses on their culture.Ad 1: small tear in the text leaf of atlas, but restored, plates fine except for a tiny blemish on the first plate; ad 2: slightly browned, and recased, as noted; ad 3; some sentences marked in pencil the margins and an occasional annotation, plates slightly browned and binding rubbed along the extremities. Very good set.
