        Jan Evert MOREL (vor 1769 Amsterdam 1808). Früchtestillleben. Kreide

      - Jan Evert Morel (vor 1769 Amsterdam 1808). Früchtestillleben. Kreide und Aquarell auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Kreide und Aquarell auf Papier. unten rechts signiert: "J E Morel". -- Maße: -- 19,8 x 17,8 cm. -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt gut, am Rand minimal unfrisch. -- Beschreibung: -- Auch wenn die biographischen Informationen über Jan Evert Morel spärlich sind, so zeugt sein Werk dochvon einer guten Ausbildung und hohen Könnerschaft. Morel hat sich fast ausschließlich auf Blumen- undFrüchtestillleben spezialisiert. In diesen Werken zeigt er sich besonders von Jan van Huysum beeinflusst, derzu den besten Malern in diesem Genre in der ersten Hälfte des 18. Jahrhunderts zählt. Sein Einfluss reichtenoch bis weit in das Biedermeier hinein. Huysums Zeichnungen und Aquarelle waren nicht nur Vorstudienzu seinen Stillleben, sondern dienten auch als selbstständige Werke. In den Zeichnungen verwendete er häufigeine Aquarellierung, die sich zwar an dem Liniengerüst orientiert, darüber hinaus aber eine ganz eigeneStruktur entwickelte. Sie scheint wie eine zweite Schicht, wie ein zweites Stillleben über der Zeichnung zuliegen und erzeugt dadurch einen besonderen plastischen Reiz. Genau hieran wird sich auch Morel in dervorliegenden Zeichnung orientiert haben. Die Aquarellierung ist nicht zur Akzentuierung der Zeichnungeingefügt, sondern bildet teils eigene, über die Umrisse hinausgehende Formen. Diese Komplementierungbewirkt eine spontane Lebendigkeit, die gerade in der Monochromie des Blattes ein dynamisches Lichtspielerschafft. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A state of the evidence in the cause between His Grace the Duke of Hamilton, and others, pursuers, and Archibald Douglas, of Douglas, Esquire, defender. With remarks

      London, printed; and sold by C. Bathurst ... and by Mess. Kincaid and Bell, in Edinburgh. 1769. 4to., (12) + 392pp., with a long list of errata on verso of A4, including an additional erratum on a pasted-on slip, bound in a fine contemporary crimson morocco, fully gilt including inner dentelles and edges, spine ornately gilt in the compartments with sunbursts, leaf sprays, coronets and other devices, marbled endpapers. A magnificent copy, perhaps bound for presentation. With the 19th century armorial bookplate of Thomas Byron> (1772-1845), the rich landowner, property magnate and sometime M.P. for Hertford. Also with the earlier ownership inscription on flyleaf of H. Purlewent Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Oxford> and thereafter Rector of Brampton in Northamptonshire, who died in 1807. First edition. This is a particularly influential analysis of the enormous quantity of evidence produced in the famous society legal case of Hamilton v Douglas - the so-called Douglas cause which turned on the legitimacy and true parentage of Archibald Douglas (1748-1827) and his claim, launched in 1761, to the extensive Douglas estates. The case itself lasted some seven years, being finally resolved in Douglas's favour by the House of Lords in early 1769. Robert Richardson (1732-1781), Prebendary of Lincoln Cathedral and Chaplain-in-ordinary to the King, was for some years also chaplain to Sir Joseph Yorke in the Hague. It was apparently there that he undertook his Hamilton/Douglas research. His findings were put into the hands of counsel, his views coinciding with those of the House of Lords. Referring to 'this quarrel', his view was that the argument put forward by the Hamilton camp was 'unworthy the protection of a man of science ...; their present proof [was] unworthy the credit of a man of experience; and that the speeches in favour of the pursuers ... [were] so full of the most unaccountable mistakes in point of fact, and absurdities in point of argument, that they are unworthy the attention of any person in the world'.

        TRATADO DE FORTIFICACIÓN, ó arte de construir los edificios militares, y civiles.

      Trad. Miguel Sánchez Taramas. Imp. Tomás Piferrer. Barcelona, 1769 - . 21,5 cm. 2 vol.: (I) 24 h., 430 pág. (II) 4 h., 356 pág. Ilustr. con lám. grabadas por Pauner, plegadas, fuera del texto y 4 tablas. Enc. coetánea en dos vol. en media piel. * Obra muy interesante no sólo para la historia de la arquitectura militar sino también para la arquitectura civil. La traducción de la obra de John Muller (1699-1784) al castellano supuso una nueva tendencia en el diseño de las ciudades en el siglo XVIII, prefiriendo una tipología urbana ortogonal. El tratado de fortificación se divide en cuatro partes: la primera trata de la teoría de los muros, arcos y maderas; la segunda del conocimiento de los materiales; la tercera del modo de trazar una fortaleza, en la que dedicando una gran atención al urbanismo, estudia primero la conveniencia de la situación y localización de la fortaleza según las funciones que deba desempeñar (comercio, defensa, etc.). Tiene en consideración la comodidad, la higiene y la salubridad de la ciudad fortificada, que tenga cerca los materiales de construcción y lo necesario para las guarniciones. Defiende la necesidad de crear un hospital y favorecer la construcción de cuarteles. Los edificios militares más representativos deben estar en el centro de la plaza central, y en las fortalezas grandes propone que las plazas secundarias compartan sus funciones militares con usos ciudadanos como los mercados. Finalmente dedica la cuarta parte a los puentes de piedra, puertos y canales. El traductor, Miguel Sánchez Taramas, capitán de infantería, ingeniero ordinario, director de la Real y Militar Academia de Matemáticas de Barcelona, enriquece el texto con sus adiciones sobre los canales de navegación y regadío, en concreto de los canales de Castilla y León, y sobre los principales edificios en los Reales Arsenales de Marina en España, en especial el de Cartagena. Sánchez Taramas critica los modelos de cuarteles de Muller y ofrece como alternativa los cuarteles de infantería construidos en el Arrabal de Barceloneta y los cuarteles de caballería de Cataluña. En las láminas del segundo tomo destacamos los planos de los puentes de: Martorell según el estado del año 535, Alcántara en el año 106, Almaraz en 1552, Real del Jarama en 1760 y el de Molins de Rei en 1768; los planos de los diques de Carena de la dársena de Cartagena, y el mapa coreográfico del proyecto general de los canales de navegación y riego en Castilla y León.

        Benjamin Franklin's illegitimate son, New Jersey Royal Governor William Franklin, signs an act to provide for British troops - including the famous Trenton Barracks, which ironically would be captured seven years later by George Washington after his crossing of the Delaware in 1776 - one America's most glorious victories

      Burlington, December 6, 1769. 13" x 16.5". "Manuscript Document Signed, ""Wm. Franklin,"" as Governor of New Jersey, 3 pages, 13"" x 16.5"", Burlington, December 6, 1769, being, ""An Act appointing Commissioners for Surveying the several Barracks Erected in the Colony of New Jersey, with Furniture and other necessaries for Accommodating the Kings Troops in or marching thro the same, for Surveying Deficiencies and for defraying Incidental Charges."" Countersigned by Cortland Skinner (1727-1799, ""Cortland Skinner "" as Speaker of the House and Charles Read (c. 1713- ?), ""Cha Read"" as Speaker of the governor's council. Separations along horizontal folds repaired, some minor marginal tears and chips affecting two or three words, light foxing, else very good.A lengthy piece of legislation in which the colonial assembly appoints a body of commissioners charged with obtaining supplies for British soldiers stationed in or marching through New Jersey. The act assigned commissioners to be responsible for specific sites, including the barracks at Burlington, New Brunswick, Elizabethtown, and Trenton. (Incidentally the barracks at Trenton would house the Hessian soldiers that Washington took by surprise on Boxing Day, 1776 following his famous crossing of the Delaware). A significant document from William Franklin's tortured tenure as the last Royal Governor of New Jersey from 1763 to 1776, chronicling a rare instance in which the colonial legislature cooperated (mostly) with his proposals. Franklin's first major clash with the New Jersey Assembly came with the passage of the Stamp Act. Fortunately for Franklin, Parliament rescinded the legislation when it became clear that no one would dare enforce it in the face of popular opposition. However, the same year, Parliament passed the Quartering Act, which charged the colonies with providing for British soldiers stationed in North America. Neither William, nor his father (who had a hand in drafting the legislation) thought the measure particularly controversial. But the reaction in the assembly was swift and decidedly negative, and for several years, they refused to authorize any legislation to enforce the will of Parliament.When Parliament adjusted the terms of the Quartering Act in 1769, Franklin found the assembly more pliable and managed to secure the act detailed in the present document. Still defiant of Parliamentary authority, the legislature took care to limit the amount of support it was willing to grant (Sheila L. Skemp, William Franklin: Son of Patriot, Servant of a King, 1990, 91-92). For example section three of the act ordered, ""That not any Thing in this Act contained shall be Construed or Intended to Impower [sic] the aforesaid Barrack Masters... to draw out of the Treasury any Part of the Monies .... until Troops are actually removed to and Quartered in the respective Barracks... that... Monies... shall not be applied to purchasing Necessaires for more than One Regiment in the Colony at any one Time expect during the Time of the Reveling of the Regiment Quartered in the same.""After detailing the responsibilities of the commissioners, the seventh section of the act denotes payments to be made to the several Barrack Masters for their expenses, but also includes an unrelated provision of £142.6.9 to be paid Governor Franklin ""for his own and the Chief Justice's Expences [sic] on the Journey to and from the Indian Treaty held at Fort Stanwix in October,"" 1768. The treaty, signed by representatives from New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania with the Six Nations (Iroquois) agreeing on a new boundary to limit further westward expansion by European settlers. The list of appropriations also reimburses ""Daniel Cooper Junior Six pounds Three shillings in full of his Account of Expences for Bringing one John Stevens before his Excellency the Governor and the Council for Examination relative to the Robbery of the Treasury."" On the night of July 21, 1768 robbers broke into the Perth Amboy home of East Jersey Treasurer Stephen Skinner, stealing £6,000 of the colony's funds that he had stored in the house. The robbery, which was never solved, became a simmering issue that the assembly used to abuse Governor Franklin years after the fact, going as far as to accuse his treasurer of committing the crime. William Franklin's biographer astutely observed that William Franklin, ""was a man with a foot in both worlds. And as those worlds moved apart, there was nothing he could do to bring them together again. His entire adult life was devoted to reconciling opposing interests... Like all colonial governors, he was the powerless pawn between the colonial assembly and the King and parliament, as he sought to steer... safely between two increasingly implacable foes."" (Ibid, xiii). In many respects, William Franklin's struggles mirrored that of his father, but the results couldn't have been more divergent. Like his son, Benjamin Franklin wished for reconciliation between Great Britain and her colonies to be resolved within the context of the British Empire?"well into the 1770s. (We should remember that it was Benjamin Franklin who had recommended Andrew Oliver to be appointed stamp agent for Boston in 1765). However when hostilities erupted, the two took different roads. William, who declared the rebel Provincial Council of New Jersey ""illegal,"" found himself under arrest and in prison for remaining loyal to the crown. Benjamin, who had taken similar pains to accommodate competing interests between the mother country and her colonies, sided with the rebellion, and became one of the most important leaders of the American Revolution.

      à Amsterdam: S.n., 1769. Fine. S.n., à Amsterdam 1769, 6 tomes en 6 Vol. in-4(19x25,5cm), relié. - New edition, and probably the first in-4 that brings together three stories published between 1760 and 1765.Traduction Ms. Belot, described by the author himself. Full sheepskin marbled time. Back to nerves decorated with nets. Piece blue morocco title and volume number of brown morocco. Scuffs in caps tail of six volumes. Some gaps on the boards, due to galleries and to the last nerve of Volume I. Border lower flat bare half a cm. Good copy, however, very fresh. The History of England is undoubtedly the most popular work and was a great success of the philosopher David Hume, the father of philosophical empiricism and its importance in the history of philosophy is the measure of Descartes France. The story could not but interest the philosopher effect since it is an unparalleled amount of experience, as such, it is a must for those seeking knowledge; the historian is an empiricist, since can not simply perceive the causal links between facts and events, it is constrained in its vision to design a movement. However, for Hume, there is no way to conceptualize the history and structure typically follows the chronology of events, it is a story provided detailed and England, which extends from the arrival of the Romans in Revolution of 1688; it is divided into three historic and dynastic contemporary: the house of Plantagenet, the Stuarts and the Tudors. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, et sans doute la première in-4 qui réunit les trois histoires parues entre 1760 et 1765.Traduction par Mme Belot, visée par l'auteur lui-même. Reliure en pleine basane marbrée d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné de filets. Pièce de titre de maroquin bleu, et de tomaison de maroquin brun. Epidermures en coiffes de queue des six tomes. Quelques manques sur les plats, dû à des galeries de vers et au dernier nerf du tome I. Bordure du plat inférieur dénudé pour moitié sur un cm. Bon exemplaire cependant, très frais. Cette Histoire d'Angleterre est sans conteste l'oeuvre la plus populaire et qui eut un grand succès du philosophe david Hume, père de l'empirisme philosophique et dont l'importance dans l'histoire de la philosophie est à la mesure de Descartes en France. L'histoire ne pouvait en effet qu'intéresser le philosophe puisqu'elle est une somme inégalée d'expérience, en tant que telle, elle est incontournable à qui recherche le savoir ; l'historien est un empiriste, puisque ne pouvant simplement percevoir les liens de causalité entre les faits et les événements, il est contraint dans sa vision de les concevoir dans un mouvement. Cependant pour Hume, il ne s'agit nullement de conceptualiser l'histoire et son ouvrage suit classiquement la chronologie des faits, c'est une histoire fournie et détaillée de l'Angleterre, qui s'étend de l'arrivée des romains à la Révolution de 1688 ; elle est divisée en trois période historiques et dynastiques : la maison des Plantagenêt, celle des Stuart, et celle des Tudor.

        LETTRES DU COMTE ALGAROTTI SUR LA RUSSIE

      Chez Merlin Library, London, Paris, 1769 - 7. LETTRES DU COMTE ALGAROTTI SUR LA RUSSIE, Contenant L'état Du Commerce, De La Marine, Des Revenus, & Des Forces De Cet Empire: Avec L'histoire De La Guerre De 1735 Contre Les Turcs, & Des Observations Sur La Mer Baltique, & La Mer Caspienne. Traduite De l'Italien. 1769 RUSSIA -- ALGAROTTI, F. Lettres. 1769 A Londres, et se trouve à Paris, Chez Merlin, 1769. (4), 337, (1) pp. 12mo, Contemporary ¼ Calf uncut; new contemporary lettering label. Minor repair to the top of front joint, paper floor at page 313. Collection of twelve letters addressed to Lord Hervey informing him on the state of affairs in Russia. Count Francesco Algarotti (1712-1764) was a Venetian polymath, philosopher, poet, essayist, anglophile, art critic and art collector. He was "one of the first Esprits cavaliers of the age," a man of broad knowledge, an expert in Newtonianism, architecture and music and a friend of most of the leading authors of his times: Voltaire, Jean-Baptiste de Boyer, Marquis d'Argens, Pierre-Louis de Maupertuis and the atheist Julien Offray de La Mettrie. The son of wealthy merchant, he became the darling of the European aristocracy. In 1733 he captured the attention of Émilie du Chatelet when he stayed with her and Voltaire (Voltaire called him his 'cher cygne de Padoue') to write Il Neutonianismo per le dame which was translated into English by Elizabeth Carter. Leaving France for London, he became the paramour of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu who was ready to sacrifice her reputation and move to Italy with him. But Algarotti fled with Lord Baltimore to Russia, a trip recorded in his Viaggi in Russia (1760). Algarotti later became a constant companion to Frederic of Prussia who ordered a monument to be erected at Pisa to the memory of Algarotti (A Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century History, Edited by Jeremy Black and Roy Porter, p. 22).

Robert and a portrait of the author; after the first edition published in 1759. The 12-book was printed in various provincial towns (ours in Saintes, Charente Maritime) and distributed or sold to students. Contemporary binding in full speckled brown sheepskin. Back with five decorated nerve nets, boxes and golden floral finials, and a piece of sheepskin as blonde. Net cold coaching plats.Toutes red edges. Three corners a bit. Paper slightly yellowed. The plates illustrating this book were engraved on copper by J. Robert, a student of Jacob Christoph Leblon (1667-1741) who developed a technique of engraving in color mezzotint requiring three or four plates with the primary colors, foreshadowing the modern color. This technique was developed from the theory of decomposition of the color of Newton. This book, a victim of its great success, was often reprinted by order of the king who was a pro-natalist policy. To this end, he delegated Madame Du Coudray, midwife to Queen Marie de Medici in the kingdom to develop boards for student midwives of the campaign and all the people who wanted to take care of this art. Our copy appears to have belonged to one of the midwives as evidenced by his ex-dono "instruction book for the use of françoize Nesme fame jean gelaud [...] instruitte the college royalle surgery basaçon to practice birth by order of Bishop's steward frank county the year 1779.

L'ouvrage fut imprimé dans différentes villes de province (le nôtre à Saintes, en Charente Maritime) et vendu aux élèves. Reliure de l'époque en pleine basane brune mouchetée. Dos à cinq nerfs orné de filets, caissons et fleurons floraux dorés, ainsi que d'une pièce de titre de basane blonde. Filet à froid en encadrement des plats. Toutes tranches rouges. Trois coins un peu émoussés. Papier légèrement jauni. Les planches qui illustrent cet ouvrage ont été gravées sur cuivre par J. Robert, élève de Jacob Christoph Leblon (1667-1741) qui mit au point une technique de gravure en couleurs à la manière noire nécessitant trois ou quatre plaques avec les couleurs primaires, préfigurant la quadrichromie moderne. Cette technique fut mise au point à partir de la théorie de la décomposition de la couleur de Newton. Cet ouvrage, victime de son très grand succès, fut très souvent réimprimé par ordre du Roi qui visait une politique nataliste. A cet effet, il délégua Madame Du Coudray, accoucheuse de la reine Marie de Médicis, dans tout le royaume afin de mettre en place des cours destinés aux élèves sages-femmes de la campagne et à toutes les personnes qui voulaient s'occuper de cet art. Notre exemplaire semble avoir appartenu à l'une de ces sages-femmes comme en témoigne son ex-dono : « Livre d'instruction pour l'usage de françoize nesme fame de jean gelaud [...] instruitte au college royalle de chirurgie de basaçon pour pratiquer les accouchement par ordonnance de Mgr l'intendant de franche comté l'an 1779. »

Une vie de Bentivoglio et un avertissement du traducteur occupe les pages préliminaires.

        Histoire du parlement de Paris EDITION ORIGINALE

S.n. , à Amsterdam 1769, 2 tomes en un Vol. in-8 (12,5x21cm), (8) VI ; 246pp. ; (8) 245pp., deux tomes reliés en un volume. - First Edition, published under the pseudonym Father big ... without publisher's name, the Amsterdam edition seems to have been published by Marc-Michel Rey. Full mottled brown calf at the time. Back with five nerves decorated with a piece of red morocco, paneled and gilded finials. All red edges. Flush caps, three blunt corners and gilt back a little past. Few pages browned, mainly at the beginning and end of the volume. Alarmed and outraged by the case of the Chevalier de la Barre, shamefully tortured and quartered for contempt of the church (it was not signed before the passage of a procession), Voltaire went on a crusade against the Parliament of Paris, symbol of arbitrary justice hardcore punishment (torture, fist cut, torn tongue ...). To carry out his project, Voltaire made a factual story and gives the form of objectivity in his work, the criticism being more skilful and effective. Aware of the burden that intentait the institution, Voltaire did not sign his name for security reasons, and did not mention either of Callas case. The book immediately interested, but he was also quickly seized and burnt, but still went through several editions. Some sources report that the book was commissioned by the Minister Choiseul, and it leads to the reform of Parliament Maupéou. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Coiffes arasées, trois coins émoussés et dorures du dos un peu passées. Quelques feuillets brunis, principalement en début et fin de volume. Alarmé et indigné par l'affaire du Chevalier de La Barre, ignoblement torturé puis écartelé pour outrage à l'église (il ne s'était pas signé devant le passage d'une procession), Voltaire partit en croisade contre le Parlement de Paris, symbole d'une justice arbitraire aux peines injustifiables (tortures,poing coupé, langue arrachée...). Afin de mener à bien son projet, Voltaire compose une histoire factuelle et confère la forme de l'objectivité à son ouvrage, la critique n'en étant que plus habile et efficace. Conscient de la charge qu'il intentait à l'institution, Voltaire ne signa pas de son nom par sécurité, et ne fit pas mention non plus de l'affaire Callas. Le livre intéressa immédiatement, mais il fut aussi rapidement saisi et brûlé, mais connut cependant plusieurs éditions. Certaines sources rapportent que le livre fut commandité par le ministre Choiseul, et qu'elle aboutit à la réforme du Parlement par Maupéou.

        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

        STOWE: A DESCRIPTION OF THE MAGNIFICENT HOUSE AND GARDENS Of The Right Honourable Richard Grenville Temple, Earl Temple... Embellished with a General Plan of the Gardens, and also a separate Plan of each Building, with Perspective Views of the same.

      Stowe, in Buckinghamshire, was the most celebrated English landscape garden of the eighteenth century. "Much visited and publicized, it had enormous influence on garden design, especially after experiments there in 'natural' gardening in the 1730s. It is historically important because it remained at the growing point of taste throughout the 18th c., exhibiting every stage of the garden revolution. Its final phase of idealized landscape survives relatively intact." (OXFORD COMPANION TO GARDENS, page 537). Stowe's fame brought it many visitors, and Benton Seeley, a local bookseller and engraver, published its first guide book in 1744. Seeley's guides went through several editions, being continually revised and enlarged over the course of the century, and did much to spread the influence of Stowe as a model for the English landscape garden. Jefferson owned at least two of them. In 1797 Seeley's son completely revised the work, including a new and different series of plates.8vo (21 x 13 cm); 44 pp. + 20 engraved plates (2 folding) including folding garden plan. Original full sheep, worn at spine ends; clean tear in folding plan, neatly repaired without loss; browning in margins of a few leaves at front and rear.
