CAMPBELL, Colen (1676-1729) and others
London, 1771. Five volumes, folio. (19 5/8 x 14 1/2 inches). Four engraved titles in English and French (letterpress title in red and black in English and French in vol.III, as issued), 3 engraved dedications, 368 engraved plates (i.e. 498 numbered plates including engraved titles and dedications). Detailed collation by volume below. Expertly bound to style in half period russia and marbled paper covered boards, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, red and green morocco labels in the second and third, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. The first major architectural pattern book on exclusively British architecture. This work was ground-breaking in its combination of two aims: firstly, it set out to be a detailed record of the buildings alone, where previous works had shown the buildings as part of a topographical view, and secondly, it included only British architecture. Campbell, a skilled architectural draughtsman, was appointed author of the work by the group of booksellers who had conceived the work, shortly before the publication of vol.I. The few plates that are signed in vol.I are from drawings by Campbell, and vols.II-III have plates by Henry Hulsbergh after Campbell. The later volumes (vols.IV-V published in 1767-1771) include plates after Gandon, Woolfe and William Chambers. Given the lengthy publication history, it is most unusual to find the work complete with all five volumes. The present set includes the undated issues of vols. 1-2 (with a circa 1731 date ascribed as per Millard, but others have ascribed dating as 1722-25 [see C … [Click Below for Full Description]

FORSTER, Johann Reinhold
London: B. White, 1771. Minor offsetting to title; a very good copy.. Octavo, with an engraved frontispiece; a delightful copy in its original binding of unlettered speckled sheep. First edition, and a rare early work by the German-born scientist most famous for sailing on Cook's second voyage. Forster was a difficult man but a serious researcher, and this work represents his attempt to systematise the fragmented field of natural history studies from the Americas, largely based on specimens he had access to from the British collections of Thomas Pennant and Anna Blackburne, both pioneering natural historians. It was one of the central works in Forster's concerted push to establish himself in England and successfully brought him to the attention of the British scientific fraternity, attention which ultimately led to his appointment to Cook's voyage after the precipitate withdrawal of Joseph Banks in early 1772. A pioneering study of North America natural history on the Linnaean model, the book has a fine frontispiece plate of a falcon by the natural history artist Moses Griffith. Coincidentally, and this is a good example of the concentric circles of interest and acquaintance that emanated from Joseph Banks' house in Soho Square, Griffith was the artist privately retained by Pennant, and who had been commissioned the same year to paint the Rainbow Lorikeet collected on Cook's Endeavour voyage that Banks had brought back to England (that painting is today in the National Library of Australia). The work is, in effect, a manifesto for better collecting and more systematised … [Click Below for Full Description]

1771. Notre blog : https://librairie-trois-plumes.blogspot.fr/ Notre mail : benoit@troisplumes.fr Joseph-Mathias Gérard de Rayneval, Institutions au Droit public en Allemagne. Strasbourg, Bauer & Cie, 1771. In-8, [XXIV]-496-[1]p. Seconde édition de cet ouvrage publié la première fois en 1766. Rayneval était diplomate. Il profita de la position de son frère, diplomate lui-aussi, pour obtenir une place de secrétaire interprète dans la légation près de la cour palatine. Le duc de Choiseul, informé de la connaissance approfondie qu'il avait du droit public en Allemagne, lui demanda de rédiger cet ouvrage. C'est aussi grâce Rayneval que fut signé un accord commercial avec la Grande-Bretagne en 1786 dit traité Eden-Rayneval. Intéressante provenance : Emmanuel-Armand de Vignerot du Plessis de Richelieu (1720-1788), duc d'Aiguillon, neveu de Richelieu avec ses armes sur les deux plats (OHR, 411, 5e fer). Cette provenance est cocasse quand on sait que l'ouvrage fut rédigé sur demande de Choiseul dont il est un ardent opposant. Notons d'ailleurs qu'au moment de la première édition Choiseul était secrétaire d'état aux affaires étrangères, poste qu'occupe Aiguillon au moment de la seconde édition. Reliure plein maroquin olive, dos à nerfs orné, plats aux armes, tranches dorées, joli papier à décor d'étoiles dorées en garde, dos refait au XIXe, premier mors fendillé. Rousseurs.

Knoop, Jean Hermann
Amsterdam, M. Magerus, 1771. Bemerkungen: Sehr seltene französische Ausgabe in 1. Auflage. Die französische Version war seltener als die jüngere holländische. Johann Hermann Knoop (1700 - 1769) war der Gartenarchitekt der Prinzessin von Oranien. Sein berühmtes Inventarium der miteleuropäischen Früchte in der Gartenkultur seiner spätbarocken Zeit ist ein wichtiges Bestimmungsbuch der Sortengenealogie alter Obstsorten bis ins 19 Jh. gewesen. Pomologie und Fructologie stellen insgesamt die immense Sortenvielfalt seiner Zeit dar. Die Sorten werden im Werk von Knoop umfassend beschrieben und anhand von kollorierten Lithoraphien weitestgehend auch dargestellt. „The fruit monographs, apples and pears in the first, plums, peaches, cherries, nuts, and soft fruit in the second, are among the earliest books on the subject to be illustrated with coloured plates.“ Vgl. S. Raphael: An Oak Spring Pomona, 48. Beschreibung: Format/ Einband 33 x 21 cm, gebunden in 2 Teilen (Teil 1: Pomologie; Teil 2: Fructologie), Halbledereinband jüngerer Zeit; Teil 1 mit 139 Seiten und 20 handkolloriert aufklappbaren Lithographietafeln der Früchte nach Seiten 10, 16, 20, 24, 28, 34, 38, 44, 50, 56, 62, 66, 72, 80,88, 94, 102, 106, 114, 120; Teil 2 mit 206 Seiten und handkolloriert 19 aufklappbaren Lithographietafeln der Früchte nach Seiten 14, 22, 44, 64, 68, 88, 94, 104, 150, 154, 160, 166, 170, 178, 184, 188, 196, 200, 202.

Contemporary half calf and marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartment, red morocco lettering piece. Provenance: Margaretta Pelham (early booklabel) A pair of important American shipwreck narratives. The Wager was a transport and supply ship, part of George Anson's fleet of eight ships sent to harass the Spanish in the Pacific. She rounded Cape Horn successfully but ran aground on 14 May 1741 in the Guayaneco Archipelago. "Byron was a midshipman aboard the Wager when it was wrecked on an island off the Chilean coast. He describes the privations endured by the survivors who remained with Captain David Cheap. They were tended by the Indians until discovered and taken prisoner by the Spanish authorities" (Hill). "Admiral Byron's narrative of the loss of the Wager is one of the most thrilling accounts in the language, and supplied his illustrious descendant with many particulars for the shipwreck in 'Don Juan'" (Sabin). This copy of the first edition of Byron's Narrative bound with the first edition in English of a noted and popular Florida shipwreck account. "In maritime annals few personal narratives seem better authenticated than this account of shipwreck and horrifying sufferings on an island off Florida's west coast" (Howes).

L'opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. " - THE FIRST STATE OF FOUR - Etching with engraving, 1771, signed on plate.

Acquaforte e bulino, 1771. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini. Il foglio era applicato su tela ed in cornice; dopo un sapiente lavoro di restauro è stato riportato alla condizione originale. Presenta al verso tracce di colla, al recto delle leggere abrasioni e delle minime ossidazioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze.

1771. Condition: Very good. When ordering from the US, parcels may be subject to import tax and duty charges, which the buyer is responsible to pay. Rare edition, released the year after the first. This famous work, one of the most radical Enlightenment philosophy, was called "the bible of materialism". Published in Holland under a false name, it caused a great scandal and was immediately banned and put to the stake in August 1770. Resolutely atheist and hostile even to deism, the baron of Holbach, who had drawn to support his thesis to Hobbes, Locke and La Mettrie, managed to offend almost everyone, including Voltaire and Federico II. The book, however, was a huge success and in a short time ten editions were made. For the 1770 edition see PMM 215, Tchemerzine 6/243 London, s.n., 1771., Edition printed one year after the original of this work published under the name of Mirabeau. A true manifesto of atheism and materialism, he made a considerable noise when he left. His publication drew to his author the wrath of the Index but also of Voltaire who denigrated (especially from the stylistic point of view). Grimm, on the other hand, praised it and attributed some passages to Diderot. The Nature System quickly became one of the emblematic texts of free thought in the Age of Enlightenment.

Publié en Hollande sous un faux nom, il provoqua un grand scandale et fut immédiatement interdit et mis au jeu en août 1770. Résolument athée et hostile même au déisme, le baron de Holbach, qui avait attiré sa thèse sur Hobbes, Locke et La Mettrie, a réussi à offenser presque tout le monde, y compris Voltaire et Federico II.

Schallhammer, Johann Baptista:
Achtal 1771-1774. Zwei neu entdeckte Grubenkarten vom Salzburgischen Erzbergbau am Teisenberg. 1) Format: 42,5 x 105 cm; Feder, braune Tinte mit Wasserfarben. Aus 2 Blatt zusammengesetzt; teils hinterlegt. 2) Format: 32,3 x 46,8 cm; Feder, braune Tinte und Wasserfarben. Mit alten Faltspuren und alt hinterlegten Einrissen. Der Teisenberg bildete seit dem Erhartinger Schiedsspruch von 1275 die Grenze zwischen Bayern und Salzburg. Seit dem 11. Jahrhundert wurde hier Eisenerz abgebaut. Im Jahre 1537 wurde unter dem Salzburger Erzbischof Matthias Lange die Eisengewerkschaft Achthal gegründet. Achhtal war über Jahrhunderte eine bedeutete Eisenhütte, die gleich an Ort und Stelle das gewonne Roheisen im Kunstgussverfahren veredelte. Im Laufe der Zeit wurden die Kapitalanteile, welche sich zunächst in privater Hand befanden, allmählich in bischöfliches Eigentum überführt oder den von Salzburg dominierten Stiftungen einverleibt. Die beträchtlichen Erträge des Teisenberger Erzbergbaus trugen so über Jahrhunderte zum Reichtum des Erzbistums Salzburg bei. Seit 1810 gehört der Teisenberg zu Bayern und heute verläuft hier die Grenze zwischen Chiemgau und Rupertiwinkel. Im Jahre 1925 wurde der Bergbau am Teisenberg endgültig eingestellt.

Randolph, Thomas, Attributed
1771. Adherence to the Creed of the Church of England [Randolph, Thomas (1701-1783), Attributed]. A Summary View of the Laws Relating to Subscriptions, &c. With Remarks, Humbly Offered to the Consideration of the British Parliament. London: [S.n.], Printed in the Year 1771. 36 pp. Octavo (7-3/4" x 4-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent period-style three-quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Negligible light rubbing to spine ends and corners, light toning to text. * First edition, one of two issues from 1771 (the other an 8 pp. quarto). Subscription refers to one's adherence to the 39 Articles of Religion, the statement of the doctrines and practices of the Church of England that are part of the Book of Common Prayer. Degree candidates at Cambridge and Oxford were required to submit to a formal declaration of subscription. Using a legal argument, a Summary View opposes a recent movement to abolish this requirement. (Proponents of abolition, basing their case on William and Mary's 1701 Act of Toleration, presented a petition to Parliament in 1772 that was defeated.) Randolph, the presumed author, was a theologian and the president of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. A second edition of this pamphlet was published in 1772. English Short-Title Catalogue T57412.
