        Neues systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet

      Nüremberg: Gabriel Nickolaus Raspe and Bauer & Raspe, 1769-1829. 12 volumes, quarto. (11 1/8 x 8 7/8 inches). 2 hand-coloured engraved additional titles, 2 uncoloured engraved portraits (1 of Martini by Daniel Berger; 1 of Raspe by J.G. Klinger) 432 fine hand-coloured engraved plates (on 431 sheets), heightened with varnish (1 folding), by C.B. Glassbach, J. Nüsbiegel, von Bischoff, J.S. Leitner and G. Vogel and others after A.F. Happe, Krüger, J.P. Degén and others, 94 engraved vignette headpieces or illustrations (21 hand-coloured [1 of these mounted], 17 in vol.I printed in red). Uniform contemporary German calf gilt (vols.I-XI, with vol.XII bound to match), covers with gilt dot-and-oval border, small gilt star at the centre of each cover, the flat spines divided into six compartments by roll tools, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, black morocco in the fifth, the others with simple repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers. Complete set of the first edition of this beautifully-illustrated iconography of the shell, including examples from many of the greatest collections and expeditions, including Captain James Cook's Pacific voyages: here including the very rare final volume The present set is complete, including the final very rare 12th volume published by G.H. Schubert & J.A. Wagner in 1829 (with the two final plates, 236 and 237, on a single leaf as published). Only ten volumes were planned, indeed, the title of vol. X reads 'zehnter and letzter Band.' The index 'Vollständiges alphabetisches Namen-Register über alle zehn Bände', by Johann Samuel Schröter, is here bound at the end of vol. XI. The plate count is complicated and Nissen ( the only standard bibliography to attempt a plate total) is incorrect: The plates are numbered in two sequences: the first runs from 1-193 (using roman numerals), and the second from 1-143, 144A, 144-194, 195A, 195B, 196-235, with plates numbered 236 and 237 on one printing plate, printed on a single leaf. This gives a total of 431. Nissen, incorrectly calling for a plate '195' as well as '195A' and '195B', gives the required total as 432. As usual with this work, the text is intermittently browned, but the plates are almost uniformly clean and bright, the majority of them heightened with clear varnish. This technique is ideally suited to the depiction of many shells, the reflective surface of the varnish mimicking the effect of light on mother of pearl. Friederich Wilhelm Martini, a Berlin doctor, conceived the idea of publishing the first large-scale iconography of shells intended to describe and illustrate (in colour) every known shell. He completed the first three volumes before his death in 1778. The work was continued by Johann Hieronymus Chemnitz, pastor to the garrison in Copenhagen, and like Martini a member of the 'Gesellschaft naturforschender Freunde.' Between 1779 and 1795, he added a further eight volumes. The examples so beautifully pictured here come from the 'wunderkammer,' or 'cabinets of wonders.' belonging to Kings, the nobility and wealthy merchants. The collections included those of Lorenz Spengler, cabinet maker of the King of Denmark; the museum of the King Frederic V of Denmark (an avid shell collector); the museum of Count A.G. Molke, who had some of the finest shells in Europe, including many that had previously been in the famous Seba collection. Other donors included J.F. Bolten; J.S. Schröter; Madame de Blandeville; Abraham Gevers (of Rotterdam, who had one of the finest collections in the Netherlands); Empress Maria Theresa, of Austria (Baron Ignatius von Born memorably described her collection in his Testacea musei Caesarei Vindobonensis, published in Vienna in 1780). Other examples were drawn from the very extensive collections of Martini, in the first 3 volumes, and of Chemnitz in the other volumes.

Knox arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia with his regiment in 1757 to take part in the anticipated expedition against Louisbourg, although the attack was postponed and the regiment did not see action in the siege. They did take part in the battle of the Plains of Abraham, served under James Murray at Quebec in the winter of 1759-60, and participated in the capitulation of Montreal in 1760. Knox gives a firsthand account of the battles and supplements his narrative with printings of important official documents and orders from both the British and the French. The portraits represent generals Wolfe and Amherst; and the map, by Thomas Kitchin, shows the British dominions in North America according to the treaty of 1763. HOWES K222, "b." DIONNE II:751.

      [Boston: Edes & Gill, 1769].. 16pp. Quarto. Stitched as issued. Some light wear and soiling; old institutional ink stamp of the American Antiquarian Society, releasing it as a duplicate in 1921 on the first page. Very good. Untrimmed and unopened. In a half roan and cloth folder. These letters were written by Massachusetts colonial governor Francis Bernard to Lord Hillsborough, Secretary of State for the Colonies, complaining about the state of affairs in Massachusetts and about various colonists. Bernard, who was governor in the 1760s, writes primarily about the quartering of troops in Boston, which was much opposed by the citizens and the Council. There is also a letter from Gen. Thomas Gage. The correspondence was leaked by parties still unknown, and its publication raised a firestorm of criticism which led to Bernard's resignation. Bernard was replaced as governor by Thomas Hutchinson in 1769, after being burned in effigy. The letters arrived back in Boston in April 1769. Three editions - one a four-page folio edition, the present sixteen-page octavo edition, and a twenty-eight- page edition evidently issued to accompany the publication of further letters - were issued surreptitiously before their official publication by the order of the House of Representatives. Adams supposes that Edes & Gill, the official printers, may have issued the first two before the official publication, shortly after their arrival in Boston. This is the octavo version. ESTC locates ten copies. ESTC W37602. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 68b. EVANS 11178.

      Oxford: Printed by T. Wright and W. Gill, Printers to the University, 1769.. [206] leaves (printed in double columns) plus fifty-nine full-page engraved plates. Tall quarto. Contemporary black morocco (almost imperceptibly rebacked with original backstrip laid down); front and rear covers extensively decorated in gilt, 1 5/8-inch wide dentelle-style border of alternating large and thin vases holding flowers, within which is an elaborate central diamond-shape design composed of floral and rococo tools with two pairs of backward-looking tufted birds on branches, surrounded by floral and star-like tools; a.e.g. On the front cover, the center of the diamond-shape design is lettered "The Honorable Samuel Rous Esq. Barbados," surrounded by a stylized fern border. On the rear cover, the center of the diamond-shape design is lettered "One Thousand Seven Hundred & Seventy Two," also surrounded by a stylized fern border. Spine in six compartments with raised bands, extensively decorated in gilt with flowers, stars, circles, and different birds than on the covers. Inner dentelles gilt with "Greek key" roll, contemporary marbled pastedowns and free endpapers. Two corners rubbed and two corners almost imperceptibly repaired, otherwise in fine condition. Extra- illustrated with fifty-nine full-page engraved plates. A few minor dampstains on a few leaves at front and rear and occasional minor foxing, absolutely not affecting text or images. [bound with:] Brady, N., and N. Tate: A NEW VERSION OF THE PSALMS OF DAVID, FITTED TO THE TUNES USED IN CHURCHES. London: H. Woodfall, 1768. [26] leaves (printed in triple columns). A fine copy. A magnificently bound and extravagantly extra- illustrated copy of The Book of Common Prayer, prepared for presentation to, or perhaps commissioned by, Samuel Rous, President of His Majesty's Council and Commander-in-Chief (i.e. governor) of Barbados, from 1766 to 1768. He also served again in 1772, the year indicated on the rear cover. The Rous family, Quakers residing in Barbados, were leading planters on the island since the late 1630s. The fifty-nine plates bound in this volume to complement the text were originally executed for THE LITURGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND; ILLUSTRATED WITH FIFTY NINE HISTORICAL AND EXPLANATORY SCULPTURES, ENGRAVED BY MESS. RAVENETT, GRIGNION, SCOTIN, CANOTT, WALKER, AND W. RYLAND, printed in London in 1755 by Edward Ryland. According to the titlepage, included here as one of the extra-illustrated plates, this work was published according to an act of Parliament on May 1, 1755. However, no copies of this 1755 title are recorded in OCLC or ESTC. In addition to The Book of Common Prayer and the engravings from THE LITURGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND, this copy also contains a 1768 edition of A NEW VERSION OF THE PSALMS OF DAVID, first printed in 1698. Considering the recipient and the combined contents of the volume, these two texts and the extensive suite of engravings are bound in an appropriately sumptuous binding. Prepared for Samuel Rous, who served as governor of Barbados, the binding is a marvelous example of later 18th-century British bookbinding, with extensive gilt decoration on the covers and spine as described above. A fine copy of an elaborately decorated and illustrated volume, with a remarkable colonial-era provenance. GRIFFITHS, BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER 1769.5.

"Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history. Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful.". 4to - over 9" - 12" tall

        Memorie risguardanti la superiorità imperiale sopra le città di Genova e di S. Remo come pure sopra tutta la Liguria. Tradotte dal francese.

      a Ratisbona (ma Milano), Si vende da Federico Agnelli in Milano, 1769.3 voll. in-8° (202x125mm), pp. VIII, 296; XXXV, 240; VIII, 180, (2); legatura coeva in pieno vitello marmorizzato con dorsi a nervetti adorni di titolo e segnatura di volume in oro su doppio tassello, filetti e fregi floreali in oro entro scomparti. Tagli rossi. Vignette incise ai frontespizi con aquila coronata absburgica. Ottimo stato. Prima edizione in lingua italiana (la prima edizione era stata pubblicata nel 1768 in francese) di questa dotta opera corredata di documenti dal 1140 al 1768, anonima, ma dovuta alla penna dell'abate Montagnini. Annota Vittorio Tigrino nella voce da lui dedicata al Montagnini nel Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani (LXXV, 2011): "Proprio per la sua vicinanza con un consigliere aulico, Heinrich Christian von Senckenberg, e in seguito al legame che strinse con il sanremasco Giovanni Battista Sardi, partecipò inoltre alla stesura di un?opera che intendeva sostenere i diritti imperiali su Sanremo e su tutta la Repubblica di Genova, pubblicata in occasione del conflitto tra quelle due città (Mémoires touchant la superiorité impériale sur les villes de Gênes et de San Rémo ainsi que sur toute la Ligurie, I-II, Ratisbonne 1768, in cui è contenuto anche l?Essai sur l?origine et les progrès de la prétendue indépendance génoise; tradotti in italiano ed editi a Firenze e a Milano l?anno seguente). L'opera è comunemente attribuita all'agente F. B. von Münsterer (che ebbe a curare in quegli anni gli interessi sabaudi presso la Dieta imperiale di Ratisbona); il fatto che in essa si alluda alla possibilità di intervento da parte dei Savoia a dirimere le controversie relative ai diritti dell?Impero in Italia in qualità di vicari, attesta tuttavia (insieme con alcuni passaggi particolari) un quasi certo intervento del Montagnini.". Il Montagnini (Trino Monferrato, 1730-Torino, 1790), abate, diplomatico, poligrafo, giurista, fu fra l'altro segratario della legazione sabauda a Vienna, fungendo da assistente a Luigi Malabaila, conte di Canale, ambasciatore dal 1737 al 1773, che sostituì ripetutamente durante i periodi di assenza.

        Traité Général des Pesches, et histoire des Poissons qu'elles fournissent, tant pour la subsistance des hommes, que pour plusieurs autres usages qui ont rapport aux arts et au commerce.

      Paris, Saillant & Nyon/ Desaint, 1769-1782. 4 volumes bound in 12. Folio (445 x 290mm). With 250 folding engraved plates. Later half calf, gilt ornamented spines with blue label. First edition. A rare complete copy of 'one of the finest works on fishing and fisheries in any language' (Westwood p. 82). This superbly illustrated work with large folding plates shows marine- as well as freshwater fishing, all kinds of fishing equipment, different types of fishing boats, as well as fishermen and their dresses of the various French regions. About half the plates show marine or freshwater fishes. Most of the plates have scenic backgrounds. Henri Louis Duhamel (1700-1782) was an exponent of the French enlightenment and wrote quite a number of books of scientific as well of economic interest. In 1732 he was appointed 'inspecteur généneral de la marine'. This large monument on fishes and fishing shows the enormous economic importance of this branch of industry. The publication was an integral part of the 'Descriptions des Arts et Métiers' and was often sold separately. "The scientific interests of Duhamel were broad. While he was concerned with the descriptions of the handicrafts of candle-making and the refining of sugar of those or the locksmith, the slater, and the maker of playing cards, and although we are likely impressed by the extensive treatise on fishes and commercial fishing which forms a part of the 'Descriptions', his fame rests perhaps largely upon his studies in agriculture and the allied field of forestry... Duhamel du Monceau presents a figure of the benign scientist such as one encounters all too rarely in cultural history" (Cole & Watts,'The handicrafts of France as recorded in the Descriptions des Arts et Métiers 1761-1788', pp. 12-13). Complete copies should have 250 plates. Our copy has one plate double and 2 variant plates, these are not included in the total count of 250 plates. Nissen quotes 248 in error.

        The Holy Bible, Containing the Old Testament and the New; with the Apocrypha: Translated out of the Original Tongues, with Annotations.

      Birmingham; printed by John Baskerville, 1769-1772. Folio. 43x27,5 cm. Frontispiece, 572 leaves + 9 plates. Tan cloth on boards backed with dark red morocco with six raised bands; according to pencil notation the volume was rebound by John Cuthbert at Guildhall Library in 1980. The frontispiece and the title have neatly repaired corners; the latter is a trifle soiled. An early owner's pen notations on verso of the third plate. A minimal hole in the text on leaf 10E. A short tear in lower margin of leaf 11T has been sewn together with thread. A tissue paper has been mounted on the verso of leaf 13K as reinforcement. There are recurring dampstains in top and outer margins, cornerfolds, light stains in margins, and a few short tears. The text and plates are generally clean and bright. With the variant title leaf dated 1772, and the N. T. title leaf dated 1771. ''The book was issued in parts, starting in January 1769, the earlier state of the title-page being issued in the first part; it was probably reprinted in 1772 for use when the book was sold complete.'' (Gaskell). The copperplates are signed by the artists J. M. Moreau le jeune, F. Hayman, C. Vanloo and J. Jouvenet; and by the engravers Westwood, I. Taylor, Le Grand, J. Caldwell, and Hicks. Second edition of Baskerville's Folio Bible, the first edition published in 1763. ''Always regarded as Baskerville's magnum opus, and his most magnificent as well as his most characteristic specimen'' (Reed, A History of the Old English Letter Foundries, pp. 279, referring to the 1763 edition). The copy has apparently been used as a family bible; bound in at rear is a torn leaf showing that the bible has been handed down in the Bird family. One of the earliest entries, not dated, says ''James Bird married to Sarah Roberts Angus'', and the next ''Ann Bird born June 8 1779 at seven o'clock / in the morning died...'' Several entries contain news on children who have died shortly after their birth, until the mentioning of ''Hannah Bird born September 23 1783 at six o'clock in the morning / Christened at Whitechapel Church in October''. Her signature, on contemporary paper, has been mounted on the front paste-down, together with an old spine label (presumably from the previous binding of this book). According to several genealogical websites consulted, Hannah Birds date of death is unknown, but it is stated that she married a James Waering in St. Anne Soho in the year 1800. The further provenance of this book is unknown to us. Gaskell, John Baskerville. A Bibliography 35

        Of Bandages in General.

      1769.. 12mo, (ii [Title]), 6, 9-106, (5) pp, pages numbers written to top corners with some error, one leaf (pp7/8) lacking, a few small diagrams in the text, some light marks and browning, modern booklabel of Melvin Edward Jahn on paste down, contemporary quarter calf, sides worn. A well preserved pocket book containing a knowledgeable essay on bandages. Starting with a chapter on the basics - their uses, composition and advantages in aiding recovery - it continues with short accounts of how to apply them to all parts of the body from the "Uniting Bandage of the Forehead" and "The Simple Ocular Band" to bandages for "A Luxation of the Elbow" and "The Sandal, or Pastoral Lacques" (for the ankle). In all 56 examples are discussed. Written throughout in a clear hand with larger bold titles, this would seem to be the work of an anonymous but skilled practitioner.

"Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history. Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful."; 4to - over 9" - 12" tall

        Mezzotint portrait by Johann Jacob Haid

      1769. Trew, Christoph Jacob (1695-1769). Mezzotint portrait by Johann Jacob Haid (1704-67). N.p. [Nuremberg], 1769 or after. 531 x 356 mm. (image measures 406 x 268 mm.). Margins a little frayed (not affecting image), a few small marginal tears repaired, but very good.Excellent mezzotint portrait of German physician and botanist Christoph Jacob Trew, after whom the East Indian plant genus Trewia is named. Trew was the author of the lavishly illustrated Hortus nitidissimis omnem per annum superbiens floribus (1750-86) and Plantae selectae quarum imagines ad exemplaria naturalia Londini, in hortis curiosorum nutrita (1750-73), both with plates engraved after drawings by the noted 18th century botanical artist Georg Dionysius Ehret; the latter work has been described as "one of the great botanical iconographies" (Lazarus and Pardoe, p. 43). The present portrait appeared as a frontispiece to the Plantae selectae. Trew founded the periodical Commercium litterarium ad rei et medicinae scientiae naturalis, one of the first general medical journals, and from 1743 served as director of the Kaiserlich-Leopoldinisch-Carolingischen Akademie der Naturforscher. Trew's scientific correspondence, numbering over 19,000 letters, is the largest such collection known; his natural history library of 34,000 volumes is now at the University of Erlangen.

Oxenstierna och till den fjärde av J. H. Kellgren. Det litterära och musikaliska sällskapet Utile dulci stiftades till Olof von Dalins minne 1766 med den unge E. Schröderheim som centralgestalt. En rad kända poeter som exempelvis Creutz, Oxenstierna och Lenngren var tidvis aktiva medlemmar i sällskapet, som vissa ordensriter till trots hade en social och utåtriktad prägel. Vid mitten av 1780-talet uppgick medlemsantalet till 540 personer. I sällskapets antologi "Vitterhetsnöjen" återfinns bidrag av bl.a. Adlerbeth, Edelcrantz, Kellgren, Liljestråle, Oxenstierna, Paykull, Regnér, Ristell, Tengström, Tilas och Wellander. Utile dulci, som stod under Gustav III:s beskydd, utlyste även pristävlingar, den mest uppmärksammade år 1781, då Thorild bidrog med "Passionerna". Sällskapet upplevde under 1780-talet en uppblomstring under Kellgrens ledning, men insomnade efter Schröderheims död vid mitten av 1790-talet

        Egenhändigt skrivet och undertecknat brev till baron Schwerin på Hjularöd daterat Lund den 6 januari 1835. 4:o.

      (2,1 blank,1) s. Har varit vikt. Pappersförlust i marginalen på det andra bladet uppkommen i samband med öppnandet av brevet. Litet hål i det andra bladet. Med Sven Nilssons röda lacksigill bevarat. Ur Gunnar Brusewitz bibliotek.. Brevet, som är på två sidor, innehåller en nyårsönskning och ett tack för en uggla som Nilsson fått sig tillsänd av Schwerin. "Uggleslägtet är verkligen ett af de svåraste i hela ornithologien att riktigt skilja arterne åt; det war mig derföre högst glädjande att herr baronen verkeligen ganska riktigt bestämdt den öfwersända foglen." Särskilt svårt är att skilja sparv-, minerva- och hökuggla åt. Det tillsända exemplaret var en hökuggla och Nilsson understryker dess sällsynthet: han har under 12 års tid endast haft tillfälle att skjuta tre eller fyra exemplar av fågeln. Carl Gustaf von Schwerin (1769-1855) på Hjularöd i Harlösa socken i Skåne var kammarherre och hade i sin ungdom varit löjtnant i det militära. Hans hjälpsamhet mot Nilsson har denne betygat redan i förordet till "Skandinavisk fauna" 1824

        Theatre de L. B. Picard, de l’Academie Francaise

      (Picard, Louis Baptiste, 1769-1828). Fournier, Edouard. Théatre de L. B. Picard de l'Académie Française. Nouvelle édition, précedée d'une biographie de l'auteur par M. Edouard Fournier. Ornée du portrait en pied colorié des principaux acteurs qui ont joué d'original. Paris: Laplace, Sanchez et Cie, 1880. 4to. Original wrappers, glassine. Uncut, xiv, 777 p., and table. Illustrated with 17 hand-colored engraved plates by Follet of characters in the plays of Picard, and a portrait of Picard himself as frontispiece; all full-length. Small tear on cover, l.l., but overall a fine copy. Louis Baptiste Picard (1769-1828) was one of the few successful dramatists of France under Napoleon. After studying law, he became an actor, author and manager. Napoleon found in him an "unquenchable gaiety." Picard excelled in depicting bourgeois and provincial interiors. His play La Petite Ville (1801) went on to England as The Merry Widow. He was founder of the Odéon, second only to the comédie-Française in importance. His many comedies show an indebtedness to Beaumarchais, yet stay free from a deeper satire. In 1897 he qualified for the Légion d'Honneur and the French Academy.

        Vue de la Ville de Genes du cot? de Bisagno.

      Genova, 1769. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 50,5 x 75 (il foglio). L'Autore (Genova, 1721). Nel 1769 il Giolfi pubblic?, dedicandola a Giuseppe Doria e a suo padre Giovanni Francesco, morto prematuramente, la sua opera pi? nota: "Raccolta di diverse vedute della citt? di Genova e delle principali sue parti e fabbriche", composta da venti acqueforti eseguite in collaborazione con i toscani Giuseppe Torricelli, per la stesura preparatoria, e Gian Lorenzo Guidotti, per l'incisione (ma anche latri furono i suoi collaboratori). Per quanto la personalit? del G. sembri, in queste vedute, essere ancora incapace di risolvere certi problemi tecnici ed espressivi della "veduta" (pensiamo alle coeve esperienze veneziane, fiorentine, romane e napoletane), la raccolta rappresent? un'iniziativa nuova per Genova. Il frutto del lavoro del Giolfi, e dei suoi collaboratori, ? soprattutto un'occasione importante per la formazione dell'immagine di Genova come citt? d'arte, in un momento in cui s'afferma per la prima volta il genere letterario della guida. Del resto, anche le didascalie bilingui (italo - francesi) della raccolta giolfiana, contribuiscono al costituirsi di un fiorente mercato librario e poliglotta. L'opera ebbe molto successo, sia nell'ambiente accademico sia in quello dell'editoria locale, fu pi? volte ristampata e ampliata, e inserite in altre importanti raccolte (alcune tavole furono inserite da Carlo Giuseppe Ratti nell' "Instruzione", 1780; e il libraio editore Yves Gravier orn? di alcune vedute del Giolfi le edizioni della sua "Description des beaut?s de G?nes et de ses environs". Oggi si conosce una sola copia rilegata dell'intera raccolta di incisioni (fogli sparsi fanno invece la loro comparsa sul mercato antiquario), donata dallo stesso Giolfi e conservata presso la Biblioteca del Convento dei Cappuccini della Ss. Concezione di Genova (a un frate erudito e storico genovese, Tommaso Maria Olivieri, si deve l'apposizione della data al momento dell'acquisizione dell'opera e alcune notizie che identificano l'autore come professore di pittura e segretario dell'Accademia ligustica; dal frontespizio del manoscritto si evince pure l'appartenenza dell'artista all'Accademia parmense). Nell'evocazione del clima urbano l'opera scansa da s? ogni pedanteria e ufficialit?, per l'assenza di monumenti quali la cattedrale, palazzo ducale o palazzo S. Giorgio. Nel frontespizio ? collocata la "Veduta della citt? di Genova", ideata secondo uno schema ottico a met? strada tra la veduta di costa e quella a volo d'uccello, che crea una figurazione raccorciata e diretta sull'edilizia che si affaccia sullo specchio portuale, lasciando in ombra la collina. L'impianto si distende dalla Lanterna fino alle ville d'Albaro, trascurando la Val Bisagno e prediligendo il monte Fasce. La nostra "Veduta di Genova dalla parte di Bisagno" offre una particolare impaginazione paesistica ad anfiteatro della citt?, una schematizzazione che individua le linee portanti di una zona periferica dove l'abbraccio delle colline ? interrotto dalle grandi opere difensive. Rara. Seppur rifilata e con alcuni difetti sui margini, bella veduta con un buono stato dell'inciso.

        Carlbohm, 1769. 8:o.

      (8),96,1-24 s. & 1 stor utvikbar tryckt tabell. + (WASELL, J. J.) Uplysning til de anmärkningar, som riksdags fullmägtige för det hederwärde bonde-ståndet, af Wester-Norrlands lähn, låtit utgå, rörande landshöfdingens och riddarens af kongl. maj:ts Nordstjerne-orden högwälborne herr Pehr Abraham Örnskölds, wid början af sidsthållne 1769 års riksdag, til hans kongl. maj:t afgifna underdåniga berättelse om Wäster-Norrlands höfdingedöme. Sthlm, J. A. Carlbohm, 1770. 8:o. 45,(3 blanka) s. Oskurna och ouppskurna i vikta ark. Enstaka lagerfläckar. Liten pappersskada mitt i A-arket i första arbetet. Tabellen ngt lagerfläckig..

Carli Ångermanlands bibliografi 1744 respektive 1746. Den första skriften innehåller ett 24 sidors anonymt bihang av Olof Törnsten med titeln "Anledning til norrländska åkerbrukets förbättrande" som enligt Hebbe saknar två opaginerade blad i slutet samt två tabeller. Det synes dock snarast ha skett en förväxling mellan kollationeringarna till denna och till en annan upplaga. Bring nämner inte detta bihang. Wasell försvarar i sin följdskrift Örnskölds berättelse mot en kritik som utkom samma år
