        Neues systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet.

      Nürnberg, G.N. Raspe, 1769-1788. 10 volumes and 1 index volume. 4to (300 x 230mm). With 1 handcoloured engraved frontispiece, 1 portrait and 367 fine handcoloured engraved plates, numerous engravings in the text of which some handcoloured. Contemporary calf, richly gilt spines with red and green gilt lettered labels (some minor skilful repairs, index volume half calf). The most beautifully produced German iconography on shells, portraying marine shells from all over the world including shells from Cook's voyage into the Pacific. /The work describes and portrays many shells from New Zealand, some from Australia and some from Tahiti, mostly collected during Cook's voyages. In the preface of the 5th volume Chemnitz states: "... viele dem Kenner wichtiger Conchyliologische Nachrichten aufgetrieben, auf jeder Kupferplatte einige ganz neue, äusserst seltene, auch vorzügliche Südländische, bey den Cookischen Seereisen, zuerst entdeckte Gattungen geliefert"./Below we give the volumes and pages where these shells are described (as well as portrayed). Vol. IV: p. 220; Vol. V: pp. 26, 27, 28, 36, 42, 47, 97, 100, 163, 166, 187, 207, 213, 215, 229, 230, 272, 285, 296, 321; Vol. VI: p. 30; Vol. VII: p. 61; Vol. VIII, 167, 195; Vol. IX, 1: p. 108; Vol. IX, 2: pp. 42, 44, 49; Vol. X: pp. 183, 187, 188, 202; 210, 238; 258, 281; 287, 288, 289, 291, 295, 296, 311, 313, 314, 315, 317, 321, 355./For example page 36 of volume V describes 'Der Cookskräusel von Cooks Meeresenge bey Neu-Seeland'; page 166 describes 'Das Bretspiel... diese Schnecken sind nach meinem Verzeichniss von Diemensland', page 207 describes 'Die rötliche geperlte Neuseeländische Mondschnecke'; Volume IX, 1 p. 108 describes 'Die linke Otaheitische Flussschnecke... die mir von den Cookischen Seereisen zugefallen'; Vol. X describes 'Der Wasserfall... auch diese Gattung haben wir den Cookischen Seereisen zu verdanken. Sie ist gleichfalls bey Neuseeland, bey diesem Wohnorte der herrlichen Conchylien gefunden worden', page 201 describes ‚'Der Otaheitische Thurm... die erst bey den letzten Cookischen Reisen um die Welt, bey Otaheite entdecket worden', page 314 describes 'Das Venusohr... das kleine gestreifte Ohr von Neu-Seeland', page 355 describes 'Die Südseeische Venus, Venus Australis... diese vortefliche Venusmuschel hat der berühmte Banks dem Herrn Spengler verehret'. Many of the shells come from the cabinet of Lorenz Spengel of Copenhagen (ex Museo Spengleriano). His cabinet contained many Cook related items and Spengel was a regular customer of Humprey, 'who wrote to Spengler on 15 October, 1775, apologizing for the delay in sending him shells and explaining that he needed to be on hand to take care of transactions on the return of the 'Resolution" (Andrews, The Southern Ark p. 48).//"Friederich Wilhelm Martini, a Hamburg physician, conceived the idea of publishing the first large-scale encyclopaedia of shells illustrated with hand-coloured plates. His ambition was to describe and portray every kind of shell known, an ambition virtually impossible to fulfil, as others have discovered since. No sooner was the third volume of the 'Neues Systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet' in print that its author died, in 1778. Publication was continued by Johann Hieronymus Chemnitz, a Danish clergyman who, between 1779 and 1795, added a further eight volumes" (Dance, Shells p. 24).//The portrayed shells come from famous 'wunderkammer' collections of Kings and nobility, as well as wealthy merchants, such as the museum of Lorenz Spengler, cabinet maker of the King of Denmark; the museum of the King of Denmark, King Frederic V, an avid shell collector; the museum of Count A.G. Molke, who had one of the finest shell collections in Europe, many from the famous Seba collection; the museum of J.F. Bolten, who had worked out a new system of conchology; the museum of J.S. Schröter; the museum of Madame de Blandeville; the museum of Abraham Gevers, burgomaster of Rotterdam, who had one of the finest collections in the Netherlands; the museum of Empress of Austria, Maria Thesesia, who had a large shell collection in Vienna, which was decribed in a sumptuous folio by Baron Ignatius von Born; as well as the very extensive collections of Martini, in the first 3 volumes, and of Chemnitz in the other volumes. A very fine copy.//10 volumes were planned and the title of volume 10 reads 'zehnter and letzter Band'. A separate index was published by Samuel Schöter a 'Vollständiges alphabetisches Namen-Register über alle zehn Bände'. However in 1795 a supplementary volume was published, which is lacking in most sets and not present here. Very few sets have this volume. A 12th volume was published 34 years after publication of volume 11. It was published by G.H. Schubert & J.A. Wagner in 1829 and is one of the great rarities in conchological literature. //The excellent plates are by A.F. Happe, Krüger, J.S. Leitner, Nüssbiegel, Scheidl, F. Ant, J.P. Degen and others, and were engraved by V. Bischoff, J.C. Bock, C.B. Glassbach, L.S. Leutner, J. Nussbiegel and V. Vogel. //Nissen ZBI, 2722; B.M. (Nat. Hist.) III, 1252.

        Lettre autographe signée (1833) à Louis-Philippe Ier

      - SOULT Nicolas Jean-de-Dieu (1769-1852). Maréchal d’Empire. Lettre autographe signée, 5 août 1833, à Louis-Philippe Ier, 1 page ½ in-4, déchirure en haut de page n’affectant pas le texte et petite réparation au scotch sur la deuxième page. Portrait gravé joint. Soult demande au Roi l’ajournement d’un rendez-vous devant avoir lieu aux Tuileries. « Sire, Lorsque M. Sebastiani, de Rigui et Thiers se sont présentés chez moi, on leur eu effet répondre que j’étais sorti, suivant l’ordre qu’auparavant j’avais donné à ma porte que je ne recevais personne, et pourtant j’étais à me reposer et à préparer des éléments d’une nouvelle discussion qu’il m’a paru que votre majesté désirait ; à cinq heures cependant je suis sorti avec ma femme pour aller prendre l’air au bois de Boulogne. La maréchale m’accompagnait, j’étouffais et je souffrais extrêmement. Ce n’est qu’en rentrant à 6 heures ¼ que j’ai reçu la ( ?) lettre de ce jour dont votre majesté m’a honoré ou elle m’ordonne de me rendre pour elle aux Thuileries avant huit heures. J’obéirai, Sire, quoique je ne me sente pas en état de soutenir la discussion qui me paraît inévitable et que je désirai pouvoir différer jusqu’à demain en présence du Conseil. Une situation physique me faisait désirer ce ménagement, et je crains qu’elle ne s’aggrave ne l’ayant pu l’obtenir. J’ai l’honneur d’être avec respect de votre majesté le très humble et fidèle sujet. Maréchal Duc de Dalmatie ». Après la révolution de juillet 1830, Soult s’était rallié à Louis-Philippe qui l’avait nommé ministre de la Guerre en novembre.

        Rovine della Villa d'Orazio

      1769 - L'imbarazzo nel descrivere il soggetto è pari a ll'estro ed alla follia artistica ed intellettuale del Piranesi, sintetizzato in questa "vignetta" dalla forma curiosa ma inequivocabile! Rarissima opera a sfondo satirico e polemico,inserita a pagina 35 della sola prima edizione di "Diverse Maniere d'adornare i Cammini ed ogni altra parta degli edifizi", edita a Roma dal Piranesi nel 1769. Esattamente l'opera è collocata alla fine dell'Apologia in difesa dell'architettura degli Egiziani e Toscani, realizzata in aperta polemica con Bertrand Capmartin de Chapuy, autore di un testo archeologico sulla villa di Orazio dal titolo "Decouverte de la maison de campagne d'Horace" stampato tra il 1767 ed il 1769. Continuanado l'aperta polemica con la cosidetta "archeologia dotta", il Piranesi nella sua Apologia che precede questa incisione, continua e rafforza il discorso già intraprese con le "Antichità Romane". I tre volumi raffigurati danno vita ad in effetto trompe oeil; il nome del Capmartin de Chapuy è riportato su uno dei tre tomi, con altri che invece riportano frasi pungenti indirizzate allo stesso ("Non merita risposta", "Capo confuso"). Il tutto viene arricchito dalla frase "Una fonte secca e pochi muri hanno prodotto tre grossi tomi". In basso, l'autore si prende cura di consigliare l'editore con l'iscrizione "Via avverto a prender consiglio prima di stampare". Acquaforte e bulino, 1769. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio con lettere CB" (Robison 37), con pieni margini, lieve gora d'acqua nella parte inferiore destra del margine bianco, in eccellente stato di conservazione. The embarrassment in describing the subject is equal to all the Piranesi's artistic and intellectual inspiratrion, summarized by this "vignette" with a curious but unmistakable shape! Very rare work, with a satirical and polemical insiration, inserted on page 35 of the only first edition of "Diverse Maniere d'adornare i Cammini ed ogni altra parta degli edifizi, published in 1769 in Rome. Exactly the work is located at the end of the Apologia in difesa dell'architettura degli Egiziani e Toscani, made in open dispute with Bertrand de Capmartin Chapuy, author of a text on archaeological villa of Horace entitled "Decouverte de la maison de campagne d 'Horace" and printed between 1767 and 1769. Continuing the open dispute with the so-called "scholarly archeology", Piranesi in his Apologia which comes before this print, keeps on and intensifies the thesis which he initiated with the "Antichità Romane". The three depicted volumes give rise to a trompe l'oeil effect; the name of Capmartin de Chapuy is shown on one of the three volumes, with a few monking sentences directd towards him as :"Non merita risposta" & "Capo confuso" ("He does not deserve response" & "Cape confused"). These are enriched by the iscription "Una fonte secca e pochi muri hanno prodotto tre grossi tomi" ("A source dry and few walls have produced three thick volumes"). Below, the author takes care to advise the publisher with the inscription: "Via avverto a prender consiglio prima di stampare" ("I advise you to think about it carefully before printing"). Etching and engraving, 1769. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "double circle and lily with letters CB" (Robison 37), with full margins, slight water stain at the bottom right of the white margin, in excellent condition.

Von den vielen geplanten Einzelwerken konnte er jedoch nur wenig fertigstellen. Der größte Teil der Bände wurde erst nach seinem Tod von Schülern in Ordnung gebracht und veröffentlicht.- Die Lehre vom Monströsen in der Natur, ist in ihrem Wesen nach weit entfernt von einem naturwissenschaftlichen Interesse im modernen Verständnis. Das Werk verdankt seine Faszination der freien Imagination der Bilder, die den Blick geradezu magisch anziehen: eine umfassende Mustersammlung aller Anomalien (aus dem Nachwort d. Faksimileausgabe Turin 2002).- Titel unten etw. knapp beschnitten, tls. leicht braunfleckig, einige Bll. leicht gebräunt od. kl. Wasserrand, Ebd. leicht berieben, insges. sehr schönes Exemplar# First edition, with the often missing "Paralipomena" as part 2 (here also in the first issue), in 1 volume with engraved title and approx. 600 (partly fullpage) woodcuts in the text.- Collection of magnificent woodcuts of true and invented human and animal malformations and miracles. The illustrations show, among other Siamese twins, androgynous figures, dwarfs, and imagined human and animal freaks.- Contemporary blind-pressed pigskin binding with 2 clasps. Very beautiful, only partly slightly brown-spotted and some leaves slightly browned or waterstained, attractive bound copy.Il bolognese Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605), medico e naturalista enciclopedico, Mente aperta e illuminata, fu uno dei migliori osservatori del suo tempo e precursore di Linneo.- Aldrovandi raccolti nel corso della sua lunga vita a pubblicare una enorme quantità di materiali diversi con l'intenzione di una monumentale enciclopedia di storia naturale. Tra le molte opere individuali proposti, poteva solo finire un po '. La maggior parte dei volumi è stato solo dopo la sua morte, gli studenti mettere in ordine e pubblicato .- La teoria del mostruoso in natura, è nella sua stessa natura, lontano da un interesse scientifico nel concetto moderno. L'opera deve il suo fascino alla libera immaginazione delle immagini che attirano l'occhio quasi magico: una raccolta completa di tutte le anomalie del campione (dal epilogo d facsimile edizione Torino 2002).

Diverse Maniere d’adornare i Cammini ed ogni altra parte degli edifizi. L’opera viene pubblicata nel 1769, tuttavia una serie di epistole ne riconduce l’epoca ad alcuni anni prima, e si suppone che già nel 1767 un buon numero di tavole fosse pronto. Dal punto di vista stilistico questa può essere senza alcun dubbio considerata come il massimo dell’estro espresso dal Piranesi. Definirlo tuttavia risulta impresa disperata; ne barocco, ne neoclassico e ne manierista, ma come semplicemente appellato dal Focillon "stile Piranesi". La novità espressa dalle sessanta tavole che compongono il volume risulta essere, tralasciando la bellezza intrinseca delle incisioni, il fatto di rimanerne ammaliati dalla fantasia prorompente, dalla loro immediatezza, e da un intreccio di nostalgie classiche e ricordi barocchi, essendo quasi consapevoli di entrare nei sogni allucinati di un archeologo. Nel rappresentare i camini, i mobili, gli orologi e quanto altro espresso in Diverse maniere il Piranesi si serve di alcune figure ornamentali che si possono dividere in due grandi categorie. La prima comprende elementi tratti dal repertorio decorativo dell’antichità classica con particolare riferimento a quella egizia, mentre l’altra categoria è rappresentata da elementi del lessico della natura, presente soprattutto con esemplari della fauna. I concetti del Piranesi, espressi nelle forme qui da lui inventate e ricreate, appaiono inquietanti e ambigui, addirittura contraddittori e se si vuole precursori del romanticismo. A conferma della teoria di molti studiosi, che lo considerano come precursore dello stile letterario dell’Impero piuttosto che massimo esponente del neoclassicismo. Etching and engraving, signed at lower right. A very fine impression on contemporary laid paper, with "double circle and fleur-de-lis with letters CB" (Robinson 37), with margins, generally in very good conditions. Diverse Maniere d’adornare i Cammini ed ogni altra parte degli edifizi. This volume was published in 1769, although a number of letters suggest that work on it had begun a few years before and that, probably, a large number of plates were ready by 1767. From a stylistic point of view, it can undoubtedly be considered as the zenith of Piranesi's inspiration. However, it defies classification; neither baroque nor neo-classical or mannerist, it is, as Focillon simply put it "in Piranesi's style". The novelty embodied in the sixty plates which make up the volume, apart from the intrinsic beauty of the engravings, consists in their spell-binding imagination, their straightforwardness and in an intertwining of classical yearnings and baroque remembrances, being nearly conscious of setting foot into the entranced dreams of an archaeologist. When depicting fireplaces, pieces of furniture, clocks or any other object, Piranesi utilised different decorative themes, which can be broadly divided into two groups. The first one consisted of motifs derived from classical antiquity, especially from Ancient Egypt, while the second theme was inspired by nature, with particular emphasis on elements of the fauna. Piranesi's ideas appear to be disquieting, ambiguous and contradictory, possibly leading toward Romanticism, thus confirming the theory held by a number of scholars who consider him a forerunner of the literary style of the Empire rather than as the foremost exponent of neo-classicism.

Auxiron propose de prendre l'eau de la Seine et de l'élever dans tout Paris au moyen de quatre machines à feu (c'est à dire, à vapeur). Claude François d'Auxiron (Besançon, 1731 - P., 1778) a été un précurseur de la navigation fluviale à vapeur. Relié avec : - BERTHIER, Joseph. Projet d'une pompe publique pour la ville de Paris.

        Haarlemmermeer, Leidsemeer - Schenk.

      "Kaart waar in is aftekent, een Concept Uytwatering in de Noord Zee omtrent Catwijk?? ter ontlasting van Rijnlands boezem water."TER BETEUGELING DER WOEDE VAN HAARLEMMER- EN LEIDSE MEER.Kopergravure uitgegeven door Leonardus Schenk in 1769. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (plaat) 21,6 x 31,7 cm. Hoewel in de 17e eeuw op grote schaal meren in Noord-Holland werden ingepolderd, bleef het project om het steeds verder afkalvende Haarlemmermeer droog te leggen voorlopig liggen. Rivaliteit tussen Haarlem en Leiden, dat niet graag de inkomsten uit de visrechten van de enorme binnenzee wilde verliezen, maakte dat de plannen niet ten uitvoer werden gebracht. In 1769 komen Dirk Klinkenberg en Barend Ariesz. Goudriaan met een plan om het Meer droog te leggen via een uitwatering bij Katwijk. In dit plan zou het Meer met 112 molens leeggemalen worden, waarna 50 molens het water uit Rijnlands boezem zouden lozen. De kosten voor de 19.000 bunders waren beraamd op ?9.000.000,-.Het cartouche van de kaart meldt dat deze behoorde als bijlage bij dat plan over ?de beteugeling der woede van de Haarlemmer- en Leidse meer. Nadat in 1836 een storm het water opjoeg tot Amsterdam en Leiden werd besloten de Haarlemmermeer toch droog te malen. Dat gebeurde uiteindelijk tussen 1848 en 1852.Prijs: ?750,- (BTW margeregeling).

        Eigenhändiger persönlicher Familien- und Geburtstagskalender. In: Johann Neubarths continuirter astronomisch - historischer und Schreibkalender auf das Jahr ... 1819, zum Gebrauch der Lande Schlesien, Lausitz und anderer benachbarter Gegenden.

      Herzog Friedrich Ferdinand von Anhalt-Köthen (1769 Pleß - 1830 Köthen) schrieb nutzte diesen Kalender als persönlichen Geburtstagskalender. Auf 12 eingefügten Leerseiten trug der Herzog sicher um die Jahreswende 1818/19 auf seinem Schloß in Pleß die Geburtstage seiner umfangreichen adligen Verwandschaft aus den Anhaltinischen Häusern sowie seiner zweiten Ehefrau Gräfin Sophie Julie von Brandenburg aus dem Umfeld des preußischen Königshauses ein, außerdem einige persönliche Notizen. Während alle Personen, auch nahe Verwandte, mit vollem Namen erfaßt sind, weichen neben einigen persönlichen Erinnerungsdaten lediglich die Eintragungen zu seiner Frau Julie und der Todestag seines Vaters davon ab. Nach freundlicher Auskunft von Frau Boeck, Landeshauptarchiv Sachsen-Anhalt in Dessau, kann die Handschrift zweifelsfrei dem Herzog zugeordnet werden. Daß die in Dessau früher vorhanden gewesenen persönlichen Notizen des Herzogs aus den Jahren 1811 bis 1829 verloren gegangen sind, macht die vorliegende Handschrift besonders wertvoll. - Einband gering bestoßen, sonst tadelloses, fleckenfreies Exemplar.

        The History of Fanny Seymour.

      London: Printed for T. Lowndes, at No. 77, in Fleet-Street, 1769. - [viii], 272, [8]pp., 12mo. With eight pages of closely-printed publisher s catalogue at end; somewhat browned throughout. Handsomely bound by Philip Dusel in blind-ruled sprinkled calf antique, spine fully gilt. Second edition, first published in 1753. The innocent Fanny, persuaded by Sir John Lacy of his intention to marry her, is taken off to Richmond for what Sir John planned as a mock-marriage. But the "clergyman", one Juxon, failed to arrive, and a Captain Seymour, learning of Sir John s scheme, creeps into Fanny s bedroom and seduces her by pretending to be Sir John, albeit a little before his proper time: He. . . laid himself down by the sleeping innocent, and waken d her with kisses. She was no doubt alarmed at this unexpected visit: but I should violate truth, if I averred that she shrieked much or made any fierce struggles. The gentleman, in a broken voice, accosted her in the character of her bridegroom; cursed Juxon a thousand times for his delay: while Fanny made a resistance, which was rather the consequence of an innate modesty, than any outrageous conceptions of dishonour. In a word, the ravisher struggled and enjoyed, and took his leave with a profusion of kisses, which he imprinted, as Shakespear expresses it, "with as much eagerness as if kisses grew upon her lips, and he would tear them up." Further adventures, both villainous and gallant, ensue, but there is a happy ending: Captain Seymour marries Fanny, not knowing she was the girl he seduced. He then learns Fanny is pregnant, confronts Sir John in a rage, whereupon the latter ties up the plot by demonstrating that the coming child s father is none other than Seymour himself. Raven, British Fiction 1750-1770, records the 1753 edition at 169; Wayne Booth, The Rhetoric of Fiction (2d ed. 1983), p. 187, n. 19, queries whether the author might have been John Cleland.

Buckland [et al.], 1769. 4to, pp. [12] & unpaginated lexicon in triple column; engraved frontispiece portrait; contemporary full calf, neatly rebacked, red morocco label on spine; some spotting but generally very good and sound. A massive and respected work by a man whose "biblical labours have justly made his name a household word among the English-speaking peoples." Disappointed in his "expectation of profit from his great task his mind became so unhinged that he was confined for ten weeks in a madhouse in Bethnal Green, from which he escaped by cutting through the bedstead to which he was chained" (see DNB). The book is a landmark and remains in print to this very day.
