        Album of drawings on the manufacture of Tobacco

      1770 - Magnificent album of Tobacco manufacture in 18th century Spain, an album probably commissioned by high Nobility or for presentation. N.d. [ca. 1770]. N.p. [Madrid]. In oblong folio (440 mm x 325 mm; 340 mm x 230 mm). 15 full page drawings. Contemporary calf tinted in green, boards stamped in gilt with the arms of the King of Spain, Charles III, wide gilt fillet, flat spine also tooled in gilt; the blanks renewed, rubbed and scratched, some scuffing, partial restorations. The first drawing with a closed tear entering image, last with outer margin cropped not affecting image; else very good, with drawings in fresh and vivid colours. A fine album of drawings on the manufacture of Tobacco in Spain, all in contemporary colour, commissioned by a high ranking official, during the time of Borbonic reforms. The arms on the binding make one speculate on the origin, possibly made for presentation or a royal gift for a high-ranking officer, nobility, or wealthy merchant. Despite it lacking any reference to were it was made, or the occasion it was made for, we can safely assume it being linked to the Real Fabrica de Tabacos de Sevilla, housed in a magnificent 18th century building in Seville, a fine representative of industrial buildings of Spain, and the second largest built in Spain after the Escorial. The building was began in 1728, and finished only 30 years later, with production beginning in 1758. During the construction, several architects were commissioned and differences in machinery had to be accommodated; Sebastian Van der Borcht made the final revision, in 1750, he would finish the building. It is on this later chapter of the construction that we believe the album was commissioned; tobacco factories existed from much earlier times, it is the industrial and mechanized method applied at this new Royal factory that characterized it; as well as the fact that it was granted the monopoly of tobacco manufacturing. Another factor that points to this factory, is the absence of women doing the labour, with only men in the scenery; traditionally, women had been better at the task, this was ultimately one of the possible reasons for the poor quality the cigars from the Real Fabrica were later stigmatized with. The album could have been commissioned well before Charles III, as reforms started before his reign; however, is likely that Charles III (who performed active duties as King of Naples and Sicily, and who oversaw the publication of “Editto de Sua Maesta riguardante gabella del tabacco” in 1752, amongst others), who was very interested in the tobacco industry, and whose arms are on the covers, commissioned it. Charles III (King of Spain from 1759 – 1788) was highly interested in the reform of his kingdom, and deeply interested in ruling, so it is presumable that he ordered an artistic rendering of the process. The building was only finished ca. 1770, at the peak of its production. Over time the factory gained a poor reputation for quality, suffering strongly in comparison to other factories, especially in the Indies; besides, men were paid better than women –who were permitted to participate in the manufacturing process in other factories-, so in addition to the poor quality, the cigars were also more expensive. The album shows with a fine drawing for each instance, the process of cigar making, the drawings are captioned: 1. Real Ensayo de Tabacos; 2. Demostracion de la pieza del registro que se ha egecutado a la entrada y salida de los operarios; 3. Primera pieza de molido y cernido como señalan sus numerous; 4.

        Historiae sive synopsis methodicae Conchyliorum et tabularum anatomicarum.

      - Editio altera. Oxonii, typogr. Clarendoniano, 1770. Folio (395 x 250mm). pp. iv, 6, 7, (4), 12, 77, with 439 engraved plates (depicting 1083 figures). Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments. A fine large uncut 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 1585 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). "In the text the editor has printed notes written by Lister in a set of proofs; also two indexes, one according to Lister, the other to Linnaeus" (Keynes no. 49). Our copy agrees with Keynes quoting 439 engraved plates.Nissen ZBI, 2529; Keynes, Dr. Martin Lister no. 49. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Verlustiging der oogen en van den geest of verzameling van allerley bekende Hoorens en Schulpen, die in haar eigen kleuren afgebeeld zyn. Thans nagezien, verbeterd, vervolgd, en met een geheel nieuwe nederduitsche beschryving uitgegeven.

      - Amsterdam, Erven van F. Houttuyn, 1770-1775. 6 parts (bound in 3 volumes). Large-4to (255 x 200 mm). With 190 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary calf, identical covers tooled in gilt with double fillet border enclosing 2 panels, richly gilt decorated spines with green and red gilt lettered labels, inside dentelles, gilt edges. A superbly bound and unusually clean copy in a contemporary Dutch binding of one of the most decorative works on shells. The beautifully handcoloured engraved plates depict nearly a thousand shells. The last ten plates, which were published after Knorr's death, have a dark brown background in contrast to the illustrated white shells. The extraordinary quality of the plates represent the eighteenth century continuation of the tradition of Dürer, and it is scarcely an exaggeration to say that the beauty of some of Knorr's illustrations exceeds that of their models. Most of them are after drawings by the author, C. Dietsch and J.C. Kleemann. The portrayed shells come from famous Dutch cabinets such as the one of Martin Houttuyn, physician of Amsterdam, who had a very large collection of shells, containing many rare species; the cabinet of W. van der Meulen, a wealthy merchant of Amsterdam; the cabinet of J. Brandt, druggist of Amsterdam. Also from the cabinet of J.P. Breyn, physician of Dresden, as well as the cabinets of Schadeloock, Muller and others.Provenance: Bookplate of Anne Geraldine Tennant.Nissen ZBI, 2236; Landwehr 96. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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 Noël 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 "à la poupée"' bewerkt en in één 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).

        THE TWELVE MONTHS OF THE YEAR REPRESENTED BY LILLIPUTIAN FIGURES

      John Bowles 1770?], [London - 285 x 186 mm. (11 1/4 x 7 1/2"). 12 plates, printed on recto only. Unbound and laid into a wrapper of handmade paper from the period. In a new green folding cloth box. Each engraving with one central scene surrounded by a decorative border featuring additional figures and emblems. Sheila O'Connell "The Popular Print in England 1550-1850," pp. 159-161. Leaves for January and December a little browned and soiled, the latter with two one-inch tears in the margins with early repairs, other leaves in very fine condition. A remarkable survival, this delightful set of prints features an amusing array of dwarfen characters portraying various societal types in contemporary garb engaged in activities appropriate to each month. The month of May, for example, features "Miss Nightengale Quaver" and her probable suiter "Sr. Tweedle-dum Tickle" making (literal) music together, the gentleman strumming a lute and the lady singing along. Though fashionably dressed, both figures are caricatured, rendering the accompanying six lines of verse praising the beauty of the month--and how it "inspires new flames, revives extinguisht Loves"--more than a little humorous. Other characters like "Don Diego Surly-Phyz and his boy Dumplin," and "Beau Noodle and Mistress Simper ye Bar-keeper," give an idea of the range of types, trades, and human flaws on display here, all of which are depicted in a similarly whimsical manner. This particular genre of imagery owes much to the work of Jacques Callot (1592-1635), whose engravings of dwarves appeared in "Varie Figure Gobbi" (1616). In the 18th century the "Gobbi" figures were further popularized by German and Dutch artists, most notably in a work called "Il Callotto Resuscitatio" (ca. 1715), which features images that are extremely reminiscent of the present work. The anonymous artist who designed our suite of plates undoubtedly drew on this tradition while also borrowing from the work of Jonathan Swift, applying the word "Lilliputian" to these clearly dwarf-like characters. The original plates were probably published in the 1730s or '40s, and certainly by 1753, when the group appeared in John Bowles' catalogue alongside a number of other Lilliputian-themed prints. The presence of wove paper in this set--a material available from the 1760s but not in wide use until later in the century--suggests that this particular copy was published closer to 1770. Due to the ease with which they may be broken up and damaged, it is extremely rare to find a complete set of these plates on the market, and even rarer to find them in such such fine condition.

        I continenti (Europa, America, Asia, Africa)

      Remondini, Bassano del Grappa 1770 - Incisioni in rame, mm 525x765 più margini di alcuni centimetri, colorate d'epoca, eseguite su carta vergata. Splendide serie completa dei quattro continenti allegoricamente raffigurati con figure ed elementi tipici. Ogni stampa è arricchita da una ampia bordura barocca che dona eleganza ed importanza. La serie si presenta omogenea, caratteristica molto difficile da riscontrare. Si tratta di una delle più piacevoli serie di stampe in formato imperiale, considerate l'apice decorativo della produzione remondiniana; furono pubblicate fra le altre anche le stagioni, le età dell'uomo, le caccie. I Remondini pubblicarono migliaia di stampe e rappresentano a pieno merito la stampa popolare italiana: queste sono semplici nel tratto, colorate con poche tinte in maniera rapida e decisa, affascinano per la loro immediatezza e sono state oggetto di numerose mostre, raccolte e studi negli ultimi anni.

A nice copy. * Fourth and best edition. Described by Count M.A. Korf, then director of the Imperial Library, as "The Best and Most Luxurious Edition." The Nakaz, or Instruction, is a statement of legal principles written by Catherine II between 1764 and 1766. It was among her most ambitious and significant undertakings. Infused with the ideas of the French Enlightenment, and copied mostly from the work of Voltaire, Montesquieu and Beccaria, it was compiled as a guide for the All-Russia Legislative Commission convened by the Empress in 1767 to create a new code to replace the 1649 Muscovite Code. Revised in consultation with Frederick the Great and Voltaire, the Instruction proclaimed the equality of all men before the law and denounced torture and the death penalty. Unfortunately, her proposed code was never completed. Catherine's manuscript was written in French, and she later produced a Russian translation. Editions in German and Russian were published in Moscow in 1767. The book was initially banned in France because it was too lib [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Oração gratulatoria que pela conservação da vida do Illustrissimo e Excellentissimo Senhor Conde de Oeyras . Recitou na Igreja de Santa Joanna Manoel de Macedo Pereira . Dada á luz por Diogo José de Oliveira Ferreira e Cunha, Auditor da Artilheria da Corte, Provincia, e Extremadura.

      Lisbon, Na Regia Officina Typografica, 1770. - 8°, disbound, text block edges sprinkled red from an early binding. Elegant woodcut headpiece with arms of the Marquês de Pombal (as Conde de Oeiras) and woodcut initial on second leaf recto. Woodcut headpiece and factotum initial on p. [1]. Each leaf neatly extended to quarto-size within a contemporary paper frame, apparently at an early date [to fit into a tract volume of mostly 4º items?], with slight browning caused by glue at edges. Overall in good condition. Old manuscript foliation in ink ("43-60") in upper outer corner of the frame for each leaf recto. (4 ll.), 28 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION, rare. Innocêncio cites a work by the same author, with an almost identical title, beginning Oração gratulatoria pela continuação . of Lisbon: Na Officina de José da Silva Nazareth, 1769, an octavo with 33 pp. We have compared the two, and they are completely different. Both were "brought to light" by Diogo José de Oliveira Ferreira e Cunha, who supplied different dedications to the Conde de Oeiras for each work. The author celebrates the escape of the Conde from an assassination attempt in each work, but the texts are entirely different. The Conde de Oeiras was named Marquês de Pombal later in 1770. This is an early imprint of the Regia Officina Typografica (later the Imprensa Nacional), created at Pombal's instigation in 1768. It began to issue works in 1769.Manoel de Macedo Pereira de Vasconcelos (1726-1790) was born at Colonia de Sacramento, then part of Brazil on its Southern frontier, presently in Uruguay. Well known as a bohemian poet and important personality of the "Arcadia Lusitana", writing under the pseudonym "Lemano", he was also a famous preacher, whose sermons were collected in 3 volumes, Lisbon 1785-1788, as Obras sacras. D. José I, his friend, is said to have remarked that Father Macedo was very ugly, but when he preached he appeared "bonito". Father Macedo died in extreme poverty.*** Not in Borba de Moraes (1983), who cites the 1769 work and a number of others by the author; neither the 1769 or 1770 work cited in Período colonial.

With Figures Of Their various Appearances; of the Instrument for Cutting them ; and of the Microscope thro' which they were viewed. By John Hill, M.D. member of the Imperial Academy. - London : Printed for the Author; and sold by R. Baldwin, in Pater-Noster-Row; J. Ridley, in St. James's-Street; J. Nourse, T. Becket, P. Elmsly, J. Campbell, in the Strand; and T. Davies, in Russel-Street, Covent-Garden." - - "The most important work to be published on the subject during the eighteenth century." Henrey - - "The first use of dyes in histology. Hill (1770) had employed dyes in studying the microscopic structure of timer, and that beyond the question, his work was actually histological in nature. His methods in fact, were more like modern histology than the subsequent work of Ehrenberg." H.J. Conn, The History of Staining (1933), p.9 - - "Historians emphasize the barrenness of the 18th century, as compared with the 17th, in the development of the microscope. - - With one notable exception, this is also true for microtechnique. The great originality which John Hill showed in the manipulation of the material described in his work entitled "The construction of timber, explained by the microscope" has not been given due credit. In his biography of John Hill, T. G. Hill has entirely failed to call attention to one of the most important features of John Hill's work, namely, the superiority of the microtechnique which he employed. Methods were used which had not been employed up to that time and which did not come into general use until fifty years later, and then as rediscoveries by others. - - Hill did not rely on any one method but studied the structure of stems in many different ways. He used a more elaborate method of maceration than Martin, and was the first to use maceration in the study of wood, sinking a loose wicker basket containing the sticks he wished to study into a stream until the tissues were well oftened. This identical method which was rediscovered by the younger Moldenhawer in 1812 is considered by Sachs as one of the great steps in the progress of phytotomy. Hill also makes the first mention of a method of preservation of material for further study. The practice of dropping the macerated pieces of wood into a solution of alum and then transferring them to spirits of wine, after thoroughly drying, resembles in a very crude manner our modern method of fixing and hardening. The reason for this is seen in his statement that "Nothing but spirit of wine can preserve these tender bodies, and, till I found this method of hardening them first, the liquor often destroyed them. , Holzner thinks that Sarrabat or Reichel should have the credit for being the first to use staining methods since they put sticks into colored liquids and then noted the rise of the color. Apathy has raised the question as to whether this work should be regarded as at all comparable to our modern methods of staining microscopical preparations. Judging by the excerpts cited from these articles by Holzner they were macroscopical studies only, and it is very probable that Hill was not aware of them, or the work of Bonnet. - - Hill is undoubtedly the first to have used staining as an aid in the study of microscopical anatomy of plants. He prepared an alcoholic tincture ofcochineal, in which, after it had been filtered, he placed the stems of plants for a while, . [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
