        Veduta di Piazza Colonna con in mezzo la magnifica Colonna di Antonino Pio che da il nome alla detta Piazza ornate con Chiesa Palazzi e fontana

      Roma 1770 - Ampia veduta prospettica di Piazza Colonna incisa da Francesco Barbazza su disegno di Francesco Panini. La prospettiva include tutti gli eidfici storici che si affacciano sulla piazza: Palazzo Montecitorio e Palazzo Chigi, a destra; sullo sfondo, dove ora sorge palazzo Wedekind, sede della testata giornalistica "Il Tempo", si nota la struttura originaria che il palazzo aveva fin dalla fine del '600, dopo le modifiche volute da papa Innocenzo XII (1691-1700) che donò il Palazzo all’Ospizio Apostolico di San Michele. Con tutta probabilità fino da allora si insediò al primo piano dell’edificio il Monsignore Viceregente del Vicariato di Roma. A sinistra, palazzo Niccolini, oggi Ferraioli, con accanto la Chiesa di S. Bartolomeo Apostolo. L'incisione fa parte di una serie di 37 vedute che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò a Francesco Panini tra il 1763 e il 1779. Incise da diversi artisti, le tavole circolarono separatamente. Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 725 475mm

        [Letter on the fighting between the Ottomans and Mamluks in Egypt]. Bucharest, 13 December 1803. 4to (23.5 x 18.5 cm). Autograph letter in English, signed, written in brown ink on laid paper.

      A signed autograph letter by William Drummond (1770-1828), Scottish classical scholar, poet and British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, written in Bucharest en route from Constantinople (Istanbul) to Berlin. The British had taken Alexandria from Napoleon's troops on 2 September 1801, but abandoned it in March 1803, disappointing the Mamluks and their leader Muhammad Bey al-Alfi, who had supported the British against the French and Ottoman forces and remained in Alexandria. The Ottomans, facing financial troubles, disbanded their non-Turkish forces without pay, and their Albanian captain Muhammad Ali (1769-1849) and his troops in Cairo mutinied and wrested control of the city from the Ottoman governor. Although this put the Albanians on the British and Mamluk side against the French and Ottomans, the Mamluks were not prepared to leave Cairo in Albanian hands. Drummond therefore notes in the present letter that the latest news when he left Constantinople was that the "Beys" (Mamluk forces under Muhammed Bey al-Alfi) had raised the siege of Alexandria and returned to Cairo due to "a mutinous spirit" among their "new allies", the Albanian troops, and he regrets that the "French interest" among the Mamluks "has taken a decided ascendancy." In the event, Muhammad Ali was to prevail in 1805 when Sultan Selim III in Istanbul recognised him as his viceroy in Egypt.In fine condition. A letter on the power struggle that was to bring Muhammad Ali to power in Egypt in the aftermath of the French Revolutionary War.

        Lilium purpureo oroceum majus / Great Lily witha Purple Saffron coloured flower

      [London, 1770. Hand-coloured engraving. Very good condition. A beautifully designed image from Edwards "British Herbal", a superb and rare work in which Edwards sought the essence of his subjects, producing graceful flower portraits.Edwards lived in London until about 1778, at which time he moved to Surrey, and exhibited at both the Society of Artists, of which he was a member, and the Royal Academy. In addition to the fine arts, he also provided designs for textiles, particularly cotton calico. Between 1769 and 1770 he published Edwards British Herbal in monthly parts, with text garnered from the works of contemporary botanists and 100 fine hand-coloured engraved plates from his own designs. The plates show that his interests lay not so much in the accurate depiction of botanical specimens as the design possibilities of beautiful flowers.Cf. Dunthorne 105; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p 93; cf. Henrey III 673; cf. Nissen BBI 579; cf. Oak Spring Flora p 64.

        Historiae sive synopsis methodicae Conchyliorum et tabularum anatomicarum.

      Editio altera. Oxonii, typogr. Clarendoniano, 1770. 4 parts & appendix (bound in 1 volume). Folio (365 x 245mm). pp. iv, (4), 12, 77, 6, 7, with 439 engraved plates (depicting 1083 figures). Contemporary red morocco, richly gilt decorated spine in 7 compartments, gilt ornamented sides, gilt edges. A superbly bound large paper copy of the scarce second edition, edited by Huddesford, of the first great English work on Conchology. "There is no actual text but the section headings and frugal descriptions are engraved on the plates with the figures. The complete first edition was published between 1685 and 1692. The engravings, some of which are very fine indeed, were mostly executed by Lister's daughter Susanna and his wife Anna who worked them up from their original water-colour drawings; many of these still exist at Oxford. The species illustrated are recognisable more often than not and none is reversed - a remarkable achievement in itself considering that gastropod shells had to be engraved in mirror image to ensure correct reproduction. The scientific value of the engravings is enhanced still further by numerous indications of locality" (Dance pp. 23-24). "Lister's shell book, 'Historiae sive synopsis methodicae conchyliorum', was even more sought after as a reference book and was quite scarce. It is unclear whose idea it was to reissue the book; the project was most likely a collaborative one, involving the natural history dealer Ingham Forster (da Costa's friend and Humprhrey's brother-in-law), Huddesford, curator of the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford, and the duchess of Portland. Huddesford was the editor..."(Tobin, B.F. The Duchess's shells. Natural history collecting in the age of Cook's voyages pp. 207-208). //Nissen ZBI, 2529; Keynes, Dr. Martin Lister no. 49.

        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.

      Augsburg: HABERMANN, F.X., 1770. 1st Edition. No binding. Good+. UNCOMMON c. 31 x 39 cm. (n.d., after 1770). Cont. handcold. engr. optical print by F.X. Havermann. Strong and dark impression on strong paper. Paper with chains. Original colors. Wide margin at the top. Lower margin missed. Wide lateral margins. Paper with foxing and browning. Small tears. Overall good condition. A lovely view of a street in the main plaza of the lower part of Quebec. The wide boulevard is filled with marching soldiers and people going about their daily business. 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).
