Endpapers renewed. Nn7 with small perforation, otherwise a magnificently preserved example. No Copy in OCLC A truly magnificent and well-preserved example of this genre of liturgical printing, which, in design and format, carried on with the manuscript tradition, but which, by the late 18th century, had already become impractical. For obvious reasons, the size of the editions (unlike that of the books!) was quite small; and OCLC finds no copy anywhere of this beautiful printing by the Venetian printer Pezzana.

These five volumes generated a fair share of controversy when they were published. Topics cover a diverse range of studies related to literature, history, philosophy and mathematics. Volume one contains mostly introductory material with a section explaining the layout and purpose of each section for all of the volumes. The series of essays begins with observations on the division of the sciences, according to the Chancellor Bacon, and includes an extensive fold out chart that delineates a schematic of the divisions and subdivisions of the sciences to illustrate the connections of different branches of study. The second volume contains essays on seventeenth- and eighteenth-century scholars and academics, such as Jean Bernoulli (a mathematics professor in Basel), Abbé Terrasson (a philosophy scholar), the Abbé Mallet (a professor of theology) and M. du Marsais (an advocat in Paris). This volume includes essays on Queen Christine of Sweden and M. d'Alembert of the French Academy. Volume three begins with observations on the art of translation in general and is followed by a number of excerpts from Tacitus in both Latin and French translation. These passages showed off his own consummate skill in translation. The fourth volume has more general essays on elements and principles of humanistic studies, philosophy, religion and music. Volume five clarifies different positions within philosophical studies, questions on the calculation of probability, and reflections on poetry and history. Title pages printed in red and black. Decorative initial letters. Head and tail pieces. Ink signature on all title pages. The first chapter page with signature and stamp, Rouen, 1797. Ex-library copy with markings. Bookseller's label in first volume, Librairie Raymond Clavreuil, Paris. Some spines cracked. Most of the hinges split. Edges and corners of covers rubbed. Some foxing through a few volumes.

        Three journals totaling 58 pages with 9 signatures of "Mad" Anthony Wayne. There are references to land owned by Wayne, Benjamin Franklin and a multipage high content treatise on those <I>"...who...died and that the liberty which our American and European Brothers, do now struggle for and may remain invaluable to..."</I>

      , 1770s A 30pp autographed document measuring 6 x 3.75 and is Wayne's survey book for 1769 written entirely in his hand. On page one, his name is written in the text, "...through the land of...Anto. Wayne near the Lands of sd. Wayne...." This makes it an autographed document signed. Entries include: "Land late of John Taylor Situate in the Township of West Bradford in the County of Chester" "Land of John Griffith which he purchased of Andrew Steel...," "Courses and Distances of Mr. James Hunters Land Situate in the Township of Radnor." On the fourth page from the last, Wayne practiced writing his last name several times. A Quaker, Wayne often wrote the day and month in the Quaker fashion, e.g., "the 13th day of the 1st month," March being the first month to Quakers. The penmanship is bold and the pages are bound by string; some normal toning, but overall in very good condition. One of the items is a 21pp autographed document signed six times as "A. Y. Wayne." It measures 6 x 3.75 inches and appears to be Wayne's land survey book for the year 1770 written entirely in his hand. The booklet is bound together by string and contains several land surveys including the lands of Joseph Mitchell, Sarah Christie, David Howells, Jacob Bough, Thomas Williams, Josiah Hibberts, Moses Davis, Joseph Pratts. One page reads, "Persons names through which the new proposed road will pass. Beginning near the . . . by land lines of Mr. William George Smith and William Garret, Ray Gale, James Galbieth, Thos. Rees, Tho. Lewis, Joseph Garret, Thos. Jones, Lewis Williams, Jacob Lewis, Abraham Lewis, Thos. Naling. . . . Thos. Ganet, James Sill, Levy Bowen, Abraham Lewis . . . Joseph Potts, John Boogs, Robert Jones, Isaac Wayne, Joshua Evans, Michael Wayne, Henry Good, William Ellis . . ." Some edge chipping and wrinkling, but the surveys are boldly written and signed. From the Ridgway-Wayne estate. An additional 2½ pages are faintly written in pencil read in part, "At a time when the invaluable of . . . sum at State and the very vital four excellent constitution, wounded in . . . hand by those when why rough to guard and supported gun as I am gent unto from our harty Regiment in your Noble and distinguished reputation of . . . . to the non importation . . . untill the . . . are duties only imported . . . into the . . .

Mark Morris Bark No. 1 3.7 Wide 2- 4 high 10 feet long." The final booklet is a 7pp booklet held together by a long nail. It is an autographed document signed twice and is of surveys of land made by Wayne in 1772. The book measures 6.25 x 4. One survey concludes, "Survey'd Octr 1772 By Anty Wayne"; on the next page, he signs in the text, "The Land late of Arthur Moore was Survey'd the 2nd Nov 1772 by John Sellers & Anty Wayne." The pages are filled with notations and measurements in Wayne's hand, such as "Courses & Distances of a Road Beg.g at the Line Dividing the County of Berk & Chester and on the Land of David Dones's & opposite A. Smith's shop...." The writing is cramped on some pages and well-spaced on others; the ink is nice and dark. Some toning and foxing. Four of the pages are held together by an old straight pin; two other pages are separate. The archive also includes two engravings of General "Mad" Anthony Wayne from the Ridgway-Wayne estate. Although not an outstanding student, Wayne qualified as a surveyor and in 1765 was sent to Nova Scotia for a year to survey land owned by Benjamin Franklin and others. When he returned to Waynesborough, he lived on his father's estate and took charge of the tannery, while continuing his surveying. This is a rare example of Wayne's early occupation. Wayne was active in local activities during the early Revolutionary movement and represented his county in the provincial assembly of 1755. He was appointed a colonel in the Continental service, serving throughout the war and retired as a brevet major-general in 1783. He favored ratification of the Constitution and served in Congress. Washington called him back into the army where he defeated the Indians at Fallen Timbers. It is unclear why he was given the nickname of ?Mad Anthony Wayne?. Some think it was because he was always willing to go into the hottest battles, others for an incident with a spy he used, which when arrested for repeated disorderly conduct, called him ?Mad Anthony Wayne? for not coming to the spy?s rescue.

Literatur: Garzarolli-Thurnlackh 16; Feuchtmüller 17. - Das schöne Blatt in einem guten Abdruck mit ca. 2 cm breitem Rand um die Plattenkante. Provenienz: J.N. Seiler (1793 München - Kempten 1876), nicht bei Lugt. Nach einem Seitenaltarbild aus dem Dom von Waitzen/Ungarn, jedoch freie Übersetzung der Vorlage. Schmidt fertigte diese "Reproduktionsdrucke" nach Bestellung an, zugleich dienten sie ihm - er nahm sie mit auf Reisen - als Reklame für potentielle Auftraggeber.. Martin Johann Schmidt, Sohn des Bildhauers Johannes Schmidt (1688/1689-1761), war Schüler G. Starmayrs (nachweisbar um 1720/1740) und B. Scabina (Scabino) de Rossas (nachweisbar Anfang 18. Jhdt.) in Dürnstein. Vorbildcharakter hatten aber sicherlich vor allem Rembrandt, Jacob van Schuppen (1670-1751) sowie die bekannten österreichischen Maler P. Troger (1692-1762) und D. Gran (1694-1757). Ab 1748 war Schmidt in Stein und seiner Umgebung tätig, wo er hauptsächlich Andachts- und Altarbilder für Kirchen und Klöster schuf, die ihm große Anerkennung einbrachten. Ab den 1780er Jahren wandte er sich zudem mythologischen Motiven und Genreszenen zu. Darüber hinaus war er ein bedeutender Zeichner (meist Kompositionsentwürfe für Altarbilder). Auch hinterließ er ein graphisches OEuvre, bekannt sind 30 Arbeiten, das eine intensive Beschäftigung mit Rembrandt und J. Callot sowie H. Schönfeld aber auch mit italienischen Meistern offenbart.

Mezger. - Gabriel Walser (1695-1776) : Pfarrer, Chronist, Geograph und Kartenzeichner. Die beiden führenden Kartenverlage Deutschlands im 18. Jahrhundert, Seutter in Augsburg und Homanns Erben in Nürnberg, hatten den mit seiner 1740 veröffentlichten Chronik und Karte des Appenzellerlandes erstmals als Geograph hervorgetretenen Gabriel Walser beauftragt, für sie Karten der Schweizer Kantone zu entwerfen. Für die topographischen Grundlagen griff Walser auf die bereits vorhandenen Karten von Konrad Gyger, Johann Jacob Scheuchzer, Daniel Bruckner u.a. zurück und kompilierte so seine an Seutter (6) und Homanns Erben (15) gesandten Kartenentwürfe, die er auf Grund seiner vielen in der Schweiz unternommenen Fussreisen nachgeführt hatte. Zu den 1769 durch Homann als 'Atlas novus Reipublicae Helveticae' verlegten Karten - darin auch vier von Johann Tobias Mayer d. Ae., Johannes Hübner, Heinrich Peyer und Giovanni Antonio Rizzi-Zannoni - schrieb Walser seine aufschlussreichen Erläuterungen, die als 'Schweitzer Geographie' bei Orell, Gessner und Compagnie in Zürich als eigenständiges Buch im Oktavformat sowie in einer Grossfolio-Ausgabe erschien. Die teilweise mit Randschmuck dekorierten Kartenblätter unterscheiden Städte, Marktflecken, katholische und reformierte Dörfer, bestehende und zerstörte Schlösser, Kapellen, Weiler, Klöster, Herrenhöfe, Bäder und Schlachtfelder.

      1770. Sensational 1770 Adultery Trial Involving the Brother of King George III [Trial]. [Grosvenor Cause]. [Henry Frederick, Duke of Cumberland (1745-1790), Defendant]. The Trial of His R[oyal] H[ighness] the D[uke] of C[umberland] for Criminal Conversation with Lady Harriet G[rosveno]r. Including the Letters Which Have Passed Between His R.H. and Her Ladyship, and Were Read in Court. [London]: Bailey, Printer, 1770. 48 pp. Octavo (6-3/4" x 4-1/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in plain wrappers bound into recent period-style quarter calf over cloth. Charming woodcut title page device, head-piece and tail-piece. Light foxing to final leaf, interior otherwise fresh. * Henry Frederick, the brother of King George III, was notorious for his--to use the language of the day--"excesses" and "irregular" life. In 1770 Richard Grosvenor, first earl Grosvenor, sued him for committing adultery (criminal conversation) with the Countess Grosvenor. Argued before the great jurist Lord Mansfield, it was one of the most colorful trials of the day. The court found in Grosvenor's favor and ordered the Duke to pay him 10,000 guineas in damages. Short of cash, his brothers had to assist him with the payment. This pamphlet offers a vivid narrative account enlivened with a few excerpts from the transcripts, along with complete texts of the letters. The cornerstone of this case, they are occasionally quite bawdy. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School (1909) II:1090.

Octavo, bound with two other works (see below); in fine condition in contemporary marbled calf, lightly rubbed, flat spine ornamented in gilt with four alternating crimson and green labels. A letter from Aotourou: one of the earliest books relating to Tahiti. Rare first edition of an important and very early work relating to Tahiti in a most attractive contemporary volume.This enlightenment satire takes the form of a letter from Aotourou, the Tahitian who returned to Paris with Bougainville. There was much criticism of Bougainville on this point - Diderot particularly upbraided him for having "torn" the native from his environment - but Aotourou was a sensation, and apparently fascinated by the French capital. Bougainville himself paid to kit out a ship when Aotourou expressed a wish to return home, but the Tahitian was killed en voyage by an outbreak of small pox.La Dixmerie was personally involved with Aotourou, and helped introduce him to Parisian high society. He remained virulently opposed to the popular notion of the noble savage, just as he sided with Diderot in arguing that it was a violence to have brought Aotourou to France. In this fictional letter, Aotourou satirically compares the mores of Paris society with those of Nouvelle-Cythère.The description of Tahiti is based on the Lettre de Monsieur de Commerson, the naturalist on the voyage, which was first published in 1769. Published the next year, la Dixmerie's imaginative work is, as Du Rietz comments, "one of the earliest books relating to Tahiti". Not until the 1779 publication of Taitbout's Essai sur l'Isle d'Otahiti was there a separately-published factually-based work on Tahiti.The work has a particularly complicated collation, dealt with at length by Du Rietz in the Kroepelien catalogue. Our copy does not have the initial and final blank leaves that he describes, but is otherwise perfect, with the title-page giving the phony London imprint (another issue had a phony Tahitian imprint). Here it is bound with copies of Louis de Boissy, Les filles femmes, et les femmes filles, ou le monde changé... (Paris, 1751; first edition of a tale in which Love proves resentful of Marriage) and Charles Duclos, Acajou et Zirphile, Conte (Paris, 1761; first published 1744; with two engravings originally made for the Comte de Tessin's Faunillane ou l'Infante jaune - when that work was abandoned Duclos composed this story around the engravings).
