Selten. - (Johann) Georg Kerner (Ludwigsburg 1770-1812 Hamburg) war der ältere Bruder von Justinus Kerner. Schon während er an der Karlsakademie Medizin studierte, begeisterte er sich für die Ideen der Französ. Revolution. "Über Straßburg kam er dann nach Paris und sandte von hier Berichte an deutsche Blätter. Die häßliche Wirklichkeit kühlte die Begeisterung des Idealisten rasch ab. (..) Er begründete 1802 in Hamburg eine Zeitschrift "Der Nordstern", die wegen ihrer feindlichen Haltung gegen Napoleon bald unterdrückt wurde." Das vorliegende Buch ist ein Bericht über einen Aufenthalt in Kopenhagen und Schweden. Kerner ließ sich danach als Arzt in Hamburg nieder.

        winter scene - Haarlem.

      ?Village proche Harlem??Kopergravure van de hand van Jean Charles Levasseur, naar een tekening van Jan van Breda. Gedrukt in kleur (!!) door No?l te Parijs, ca. 1770, Afm. (afbeelding) 26,7 x 36,1 cm.Blijkbaar heeft de drukker zijn kunnen willen tonen en maakte hij behalve een normale zwart-witte afdruk van de koperplaat ook een afdruk in kleur. Het koper werd daarvoor met verschillende kleuren inkt ?? la poup?e?? bewerkt en in ??n drukgang gedrukt. De naam van dit in de 18de-eeuw gebruikte kleurendruk-procede, stamt af van de bol stof waarmee de inkt op de koperplaat werd gebracht. Deze bol leek op een poppetje.De Lage Landen kenden vele vinnig koude winters. Kou die ?deur vel en vleesch passeerde??. Binnenwateren en rivieren zaten potdicht en waren tot maart met een dikke ijskorst bedekt. Het leven van alledag viel niet mee. De prijzen voor etenswaren stegen tijdens de winterperiode enorm. Er was gebrek aan turf, hout en kolen en vooral aan vers water. Werk was moeilijk te vinden. Er stierven heel wat mensen van de kou. Ellende overheerste.Toch is daar in de vele ijsgezichten die er in de loop der eeuwen zijn gemaakt weinig van te zien. Schaatsen werden onder gebonden. Een echtpaar zwiert over het ijs. Mensen zitten gezellig bij elkaar in een slede. Een blos op de wangen. Men komt elkaar bij het ijsvermaak tegen en neemt de laatste nieuwtjes door. Het is windstil, wellicht dat de zon straks nog even doorbreekt. Er komt een rookpluim uit een schoorsteen: binnen is het warm.De Antwerpse Jan Frans van Breda (ook wel Bredael) (1686-1750) kopieerde en werkte in de stijl van Brueghel en Wouwerman. Jean Charles Levasseur (1734-1816) was graveur du Roi.Prijs: ?975,- (incl. lijst).

        Petite Outarde ou Canne Petierre de France, Femelle

      - A detailed hand colored engraved ornithological print by Francoise Nicolas Martinet from the series "Histoire naturelle Des Oiseaux", by George Louis Marie Leclerc, Comte de Buffon, published in Paris in 1770-86. This print measures 11" x 9". François Nicolas Martinet engraved illustrations of birds for books by some of the most influential ornithologists in 18th-century France. Born in 1731, Martinet was trained as an engineer and draftsman. Engraving illustrations for books probably began as a secondary profession, but as his popularity and output grew it must have consumed the majority of his time. Martinet's son Alexandre eventually assisted him and made many engravings, as is known from signatures and dates on the prints. Martinet also had two sisters, Angélique and Marie Thérèse, who were engravers as well, but it is not known if they worked with him. Towards the end of his career, Martinet drew upon his experience in engraving birds for others to publish his own ornithology books, producing plates until his death sometime in the late 1780s or early 1790s (sources disagree on the year). This edition, containing 1,008 images by Martinet, was certainly the most ambitious and comprehensive bird book, which had appeared at the time of its publication. Martinet completed both the original drawings and hand-engraved all of the copperplates. A broad spectrum of birds are shown, including birds native to Europe, as well as exotic tropical birds such as parrots and toucans. Each is rendered in a scientific manner, outlined in yellow border. They are distinctly 18th century in conception and style, generally with a hint of the bird's habitat, such as a tree branch, rock or water. Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing/staining.

        Wassermühle.

      - Bleistift, auf braunem Velin, rechts unten monogrammiert „L. R.". 11,2:13,8 cm. Als Sohn des Malers C.A. Richter (1770-1848) erhielt Ludwig Richter seinen ersten Unterricht im Malen, Zeichnen und Radieren bei seinem Vater. Mittels eines 3jährigen Reisestipendiums konnte er 1823-1826 nach Italien gehen, wo er regen Kontakt mit deutschen Künstlern pflegte. Nach seiner Rückkehr blieb er für wenige Jahre in Dresden, zog 1828 nach Meißen, wo er bis 1835 als Zeichenlehrer in der Porzellanmanufaktur tätig war. Nach deren Schließung Ende 1935 kehrte er nach Dresden zurück, wo er Lehrer an der Kunstakademie wurde, 1841 erhielt er die Professur, und bis 1876 lehrte. Nach seinem Italienaufenthalt zunächst vorwiegend nach dort gezeichneten Blättern arbeitend, wandte er sich an 1835 zunehmend der heimischen Landschaft zu. 1836 begann die fruchtbare Zusammenarbeit mit dem Verleger Georg Wigand in Leipzig, für den er nicht nur Landschaften für dessen Stahlstiche zeichnete, sondern auch für die Holzschnitte zu Marbachs Volksbüchern. Seine Illustrationskunst, die zunehmend in den Vordergrund seines Schaffens trat, für Volksschriften, Liedersammlungen, Gedichte, Märchen und Kinderbücher etc., war für zahlreiche Künstler vorbildhaft.

Prospect des Haupt Plazes der untern Stadt zu Quebec. Vuë de la Place capitale dans la Ville basse a Quebec. Augsburg, 'Akademische Kunsthandlung', With captions in French and German below the image. The "optical prints" (vue d'optique) " perspective views" were a form of entertainment meant to be seen through devices were made to be viewed in a special apparatus called a Zograscope (not included) Drawn with an exaggerated one-point perspective, each print took on a nearly three-dimensional appearance when viewed in the mirror through the optique lens. The name of the print at the top was reversed in the mirror and thus right-reading when viewed by this device. Strong hand color distinguishes perspective views. These were often drawn in course crude colours inside the images, which worked better when viewed in the zograscope under low light. Stunning vue d'optique prints "Collection des Prospects," in this case, was of 5 various fictitious views of Quebec that Habermann published in collaboration with his partner Balthazar Frederic Leizelt. These prints offered middle- and upper-class viewers in Europe a glimpse of far-off places as North America (Quebec, New York and Boston). As well, traveling vendors, went to fairs offering views of the images through the Optical Machine for a few pennies to the very curious general public. "In considering the fictitous views of Canada, made up wholly from the imagination of engravers assisted by what they had heard from travellers, the names of François Xavier Habermann and Balthazar Freric Leeizelt... easily come first. Their Collection of Prospects was completely the product of a fertile imagination... quite unassisted by fact. The astonished collector comes across these well-drawn.... coloured etchings, having the strange peculiarity of the title et the top of the print reading backwards [as with the present image]... These prints were probably published about 1775. Habermann's views of New York, done about the same time are equally fictitious'." (Spendlove The Face of Early Canada p.83).

        Ducatuum Curlandiae et Semigalliae nec non districtus Regii Piltensis tabula geographica.

      o.O. (Berlin) o.J., ca. 1770 - Kupferstich 58 x 49 cm. Sehr gut erhalten. Einblattdruck, selten. * Tooley, Mapmakers II,224; Lex. Kart. 456. Kein Exemplar nachgewiesen in der IKAR-Datenbank. Seltene Karte der Herzogtümer Kurland und Semgallen, damals noch unter polnischer Lehnshoheit liegend. Der Windauer Pastor Adolf Groth, der Begründer de deutsch-baltischen Kartographie, hatte erstmals eine Spezialkarte Kurlands gezeichnet und 1739 in Petersburg als nicht nachgewiesenen "Prototyp" in Kupfer stechen lassen. Im Jahre 1747 erschien davon bei Homanns Erben in Nürnberg eine fehlerhafte Kopie (in 2 Blättern), gezeichnet vom kurländischen Festungsbaumeister Barnikel. Zur Beseitigung der Fehler hat nunmehr der Sohn des Pastors Groth, ebenfalls Pastor (zu Sackenhausen in Kurland) um 1750 eine neue, berichtigte Fassung geschaffen, die um 1770 in Berlin erschien (hier vorliegend). Diese hat oben rechts zwei große Wappenkartuschen (eine mit dem Titel, die andere als Widmung des Verlegers W.A. Steidel et Co. für Herzog Peter von Kurland), am rechten Rand eine kleine Nebenkarte des Gebietes um Dünaburg sowie unten links eine große bildliche Darstellung kurländischer Bauern, ihres typischen Hauses und ihrer Methode des Fischfanges mit Körben. * Wilhelm August Steidel aus Königsberg, Student der Theologie und Angestellter in der Buchhandlung von Johann Jakob Kanter. Gründete einen eigenen Verlag und publizierte - in Konkurrenz zum Rigaer Verleger Steffenhagen - zusammen mit dem Drucker Jakob Friedrich Hinz unter der Firmierung „Steidel & Compagnie" in Mitau, der Hauptstadt des Herzogtums Kurland, mehrere liturgische Bücher in lettischer Sprache, vier Symphonien des Kurländischen Hofkapellmeisters Franz Adam Feichtner sowie die hier vorliegende Kupferstichkarte des Herzogtums Kurland (die in Berlin gestochen worden war). * A rare single-leaf map of the Dutchy of Curland (nowadays part of Latvia), designed by the German reverend Groth (published in Berlin ca. 1770) on the base of his father's map designed in 1739. This first map was copied in 1747 by the military-ingeneer Barnikel for Homann heirs in Nürnberg, but contained a lot of mistakes. So the son of Pastor Groth published this revised Berlin edition. Very rare, in good state of conservation. No copy mentioned in the KVK (Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog), the Central Map Catalogue of the important German Map Collections.

        Système du monde.

      Bouillon, Société Typographique, 1770. ____ Rare première édition en français des "Cosmologische Briefe", publiées en 1761. Lambert (1728-1777) dans ces lettres cosmologiques, avait imaginé l'Univers constitué de systèmes de plus en plus vastes tournant les uns autour des autres, le plus grand d'entre eux tournant autour de son centre. Cet Univers était certainement habité par des êtres semblables aux humains, adaptés à des conditions climatiques plus sévères que sur la Terre, comme ceux qui devaient se trouver sur des comètes. Sommaire : - Comètes. Etat de permanence du système solaire. - Principes cosmologiques. - Population de l'univers. - Si les comètes sont habitables. - Nombre de comètes. - Les comètes comparées avec les planètes. - Pourquoi tant de comètes, & si peu de planètes ? - Table de Halley. - Orbites paraboliques & hyperboliques. - Mouvement des étoiles fixes. - Les étoiles fixes sont à différentes distances du soleil. - Voie lactée. Figure du ciel étoilé. - Systèmes d'étoiles fixes. - Objection. Lumière des étoiles. Jusqu'à quelle distance elle se fait sentir. - Mouvement des étoiles. Sa nature, sa vitesse, sa direction. Orbites. Mouvement universel. - Centres. - Ellipses changées en cycloïdes. Mouvement universel. - Conclusions générales. Lambert "elaborated a theory according to which the thousands of stars surrounding the sun constituted a solar system. Moreover, he considered the Milky Way as a large number of such systems, that is, a system of higher order. ... The whole universe, Lambert postulated, had to be inhabited by creatures like human beings. Hence collisions of heavy bodies are not to be expected, and the wide spread fear that comets (which Lambert also supposed inhabited) might destroy the earth was unfounded." DSB VII, 598. Défaut de papier au bas de la page de titre, sinon, très bon exemplaire. ***** First french edition. The universe had to be inhabited by creatures like human beings. In-12.

The major boundary is the Susquehanna River with streams coming from the north such as Unadilla Creek, Otsdawa Creek, Otego Creek, and Charlotte River. This area is around the present day location of Oneonta, New York. On November 5, 1768 Sir William Johnson signed a treaty with the Five Nations over the vast territory, including part of New York, was obtained by purchase from the Indians. "Following this real estate transfer - one of the largest in early American history - the business of obtain land patents throve with renewed energy." "Th many patents that were granted in 1770 show how quickly the English availed themselves of the opportunity to acquire land after the treaty of Fort Stanwix was ratified. Among the patents were those of Leonard Lispenard, Robert and William Edmeston, Peter Middleton and Clotworth Upton, on the Unadilla River; The Otego tract of 69,000 acres to Charles Reade, Thomas Wharton, William Trent, Richard Smith and others … These tracts, varying in size from 2,000 to 40,000 acres, were surveyed, divided, subdivided and sold to different proprietors, so that when they came into the possession of actual settlers very few were conveyed by the original patentees. Since most of the patents were obtained solely for the purpose of land speculation, but few of the original patentees continued to hold them long … The public domain continued to be the prey of land speculators until the end of the colonial period" Reference - Volume V, pages 107-113 History of the State of New York in 10 volumes edited by Alexander C.

        The Knowledge of the World, and the attainments useful in the conduct of life. Translated from the French of Monsieur Callieres ...

      Printed for the translator; and sold by R. Baldwin, &c. [1770?] xviii, 179, [1]pp, half title. 12mo. Prelims misbound, corners creased, tear to H4 affecting 4 words. Lacking following f.e.p. Uncut in contemp. quarter calf, marbled boards; leading hinge a little worn. Elaborate signature of Maurice Wynne on leading f.e.p. A nice unsophisticated copy.ESTC T112796, BL & National Library of Wales only in UK; Boston Public Library only in North America. A translation of De la science du monde et des connaissances utiles à la conduite de la vie published in 1717 as a companion piece to Callière's influential treatise on diplomacy De la manière de négocier avec les souverains, 1716. Although his 1716 work was translated into English and published in the same year, this is the earliest English edition recorded on ESTC. François de Callières, 1645-1717, was a French diplomat, author and special envoy to Louis XIV; he was one of three French signatories to the Peace of Ryswick in 1697. His work was well received in the English speaking world with Thomas Jefferson known to have had a copy of The Practice of Diplomacyat Monticello. 'Our author', the translator writes in his preface, 'seems to have been a man of good heart and sound judgement, improved by the great experience of men and things with which his high station and employment unavoidably furnished him. It might be naturally imaged that a French Writer on this subject would too much encourage a coarse appetite for flatter, in the easy reciprocation and currency of which their vivacity and companionable turn are chiefly displayed. Mosieur Callieres seems to have had an understanding much above this foppery and self-delusion, the futile commerce and gratification of the little minds'.

Indietro con i nervi decorati, ruote e testa coda. parti del titolo in marocchino rosso e numero del volume in marocco verde. Intaglio tappo per la mascella inferiore. Mancano la parte numero di volume del volume II. Attrito. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, illustrée de 2 belles figures de Eisen gravées par de Longueil (que l'on trouve parfois aux frontispices) et de 4 planches dépliantes en fin du tome I. Reliures en pleine basane brune marbrée d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné, roulettes en queue et tête. Pièces de titre en maroquin rouge et de tomaison en maroquin vert. Coiffe de tête fendue au mors inférieur. Manque à la pièce de tomaison du tome II. Frottements. Absence du faux-titre dans le tome I. Bon exemplaire, frais dans l'ensemble. Curiosité. Les recherches en tactique militaire ont conduit l'auteur à établir cette histoire militaire des guerres entre le Siam et la Cochinchine (Vietnam et Thaïlande). Le livre contient une histoire de ces deux pays ainsi qu'une description de leur géographie. Lo de Radelet s'attache également à décrire les dispositifs militaires, les stratégies et les machines de guerres employés par les deux camps, ainsi que l'histoire de ses héros. Le plus étrange est la connaissance que les protagonistes ont des guerres de l'Europe et notamment de l'Antiquité, connaissance qu'il faut attribuée à l'auteur. Le modèle de Lo de Radelet, qu'il cite par ailleurs dans sa préface, est la Cyropédie de Xénophon, dont l'auteur semble emprunter la narration. Lo de Radelet obtint le grade de colonel dans l'armée de Suède. Il se mit ensuite au service de la France, mais renonçant à la gloire militaire et après avoir été blessé par deux fois, il se retira pour se consacrer à des études de tactique militaire et de philosophie. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.
