Francoise Nicolas Martinet
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

ASTRUC]. CHAPMAN, Samuel
London: W. Owen, 1770. Contemporary full calf. Joints weak, spine rubbed. Second edition, much expanded from Chapman's 1755 translation of Astruc's De morbis veneris, Books II-IV. Astruc (1685-1766), a professor of anatomy in Paris, was an eminent historian of syphilis who utilized pathological anatomy in his studies of the venereal diseases. He was later personal physician to kings in France and Poland. Chapman was a physician in Aberdeen and a Licentiate of the College of Physicians. In his lengthy introduction, he notes that he will quote all those physicians who have deviated from Astruc's methods or have introduced newer methods, including his own observations, which are sprinkled liberally throughout.

1770. Hand-coloured engraving. Trimmed as usual and mounted on washline background. Mounting sheet is watermarked laid paper. Image size: 14 1/8 x 20 1/8 inches. A wonderful romantic view in the grand tradition of the picturesque English landscape. Towards the middle of the eighteenth century a trend developed amongst English artists and printmakers, which sought to visually record the natural beauties of England and Wales. Sparked by a sense of national confidence and patriotism, English printmakers began to publish topographical prints of the important sights in the British Isles. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of the beauty and history of England. They were aimed at English and foreign tourists who desired a memento of their travels, or at those vicarious tourists who collected topographical prints instead of traveling. This is a wonderful example of a picturesque eighteenth century landscape print. By trimming the image within the platemark and mounting it on a decorative washline background the print has the effect of a landscape painting. The likeness is heightened by the addition of added body colour in the image and the use of a heavy painterly technique of engraving. This practice was common amongst engravers and printsellers who wished to capitalize on this trend for picturesque landscapes of the English countryside. This print is from the famed Oettingen-Wallerstein collection, which was compiled over two centuries by various members of the royal household. The collection … [Click Below for Full Description]

Samtida hfrbd med upphöjda bind, blekt röd titeletikett av glättad papp och stänkta snitt. Titeletiketten har några smärre nagg och sprickor.

Inlagan är i stort i fint skick, men med några skönhetsfläckar på sina ställen, t.ex. en lagad liten reva i nedre marginalen på s. 1, en mindre tuschfläck i texten på s. 96-97 och en liten fläck i övre marginalen på s. 317-18. En kraftig rostfläck har förorsakat smärre textförluster på s. 287-88 och en inte lika kraftig rostfläck med vidhängande bokstavsförlust på s. 974. Ett nagg i övre marginalen på s. 447 och enstaka samtida marginalanteckningar. Bra ex. med Gustaf Elfstens namnteckning och Harald Thorssons exlibris. Har senare tillhört Kurt Winberg.

Kapitlet om Smålands naturalhistoria på s. 16-26 är författat av Carl von Linné. Träsnitten avbildar runinskrifter och är skurna av kyrkoherden Wirgander. Gustaf Elfsten (1727-94) var prost i Amnehärad i Västergötland och skrev själv ett topografiskt bidrag i "Swenska Mercurius" 1762. Harald Thorssons mycket fina bibliotek hade fina avdelningar av bl.a. bokväsen, svensk historia och topografi.

Three very small separations at the folds with no real loss, some wrinkling, else near fine. An intriguing, detailed, and very rare manuscript map of northwestern Pennsylvania, created by noted surveyor and soldier Robert Lettis Hooper, Jr. The map encompasses the present-day Pennsylvania counties of Erie, Crawford, Venango, Armstrong, Jefferson, and Clarion, a district that would later become famous due to its oil and gas deposits. In fact, "Oil Spring" and "Oil C[reek]" are shown in the northeast corner of the map. The scale of the map is fifteen miles to an inch, and covers the area from Presque Isle on Lake Erie (site of the present-day city of Erie) in the northwest to the region just to the north and east of Pittsburgh (which is not shown) in the southwest. The western branch of the Susquehanna is drawn in the southeast, and the area that is now encompassed by the Allegheny National Forest is in the northeast. The dominant feature of the map is the "Allegany River," shown snaking its way north and east to its headwaters. More than a dozen tributaries, rivers, and creeks branching off the Allegheny are shown and identified, as is the Buffalo Swamp and Fort "Wenango" (sic, actually Venango). Two roads are indicated on the map in dotted lines, one showing the "road from Fort Pitt to Wenango," and the other, in the far northeast, marking the "Indian Path to Cayuga." Hooper notes that the fort at Presque Isle has been demolished, … [Click Below for Full Description]

JEFFERYS, Thomas (1719-71,) William FULLER and William Gerard DE BRAHM (1717-99)
London: Thomas Jefferys, 26 March, 1770. Copper-engraved map with original outline and wash colour, in excellent condition. 21 3/4 x 29 1/2 inches. A rare and extremely fine eighteenth-century set of sea charts of Amelia Island, presented on one sheet, produced by the British royal cartographer This superb map sheet contains three maps of Amelia Island, in northeastern Florida and vicinity, and was at the time the most accurate sea chart of the area ever produced. The great skill of Thomas Jefferys, who had established himself as the era's leading cartographer of America, is evinced by the present work. With great elegance and clarity, it expresses the results of detailed coastal surveys conducted by the sea captain William Fuller. At the time that this map was made, this area was part of the British colony of East Florida, which was ceded by Spain following the end of the Seven Years War in 1763. The map that makes up the left-hand quarter of the sheet, Plan of Amelia Island, depicts the long, narrow island in its entirety, with its tidal marshes and the sand dunes that act as a natural protective barrier to the sea, expressed in finely engraved detail. It is directly derived from a part of William Gerard De Brahm's monumental Map of South Carolina & Georgia (1757). The largest map, A Chart of the Entrance into St. Mary's River, located to the upper-right, features the northern end of the island and the waterway that runs in between it and Cumberland Island, Georgia. The river features numerous depth soundings and the locations of the shifting shoals that posed … [Click Below for Full Description]

EDWARDS, John (1742-1815)
[London: 1770]. Hand-coloured engraving. Very good condition. 13 3/4 x 9 3/4 inches. 19 3/8 x 11 7/8 inches. 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.

Trial; Grosvenor Cause
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.

Colden, Cadwallader:
Fort George, N.Y. April 22, 1770.. [2]pp. on folded letter sheet, docketed on verso, with integral blank leaf. Old folds, bit tanned. Small stain on first page. Overall quite good. Addressed to Sir William Johnson, superintendent of Indian Affairs. This letter concerns trade with the Indians and a July 10 meeting with commissioners from Canada as well as from the Colonies. After addressing some political and business matters, Colden writes in a postscript to Johnson: "The 10th of July is approved for the Commissioners of the several Colonies to meet at this place to construct a plan for regulating the Trade with the Indians, perhaps you may think it proper to be here at that time." Colden, scientist and philosopher, was one of the most brilliant leaders of colonial New York. His book, THE HISTORY OF THE FIVE NATIONS... (1727), is a classic account of American Indians during the colonial period.
