        Gedichten. Amsterdam, Pieter Meijer, 1772.

      "Groot 4º: * 4 A-2O 4 2* 2, gepag.: [8] 296 [4] pp. Op de titelpagina een groot vignet door Rein. Vinkeles, 1771 naar J. de Bosch, bij de toewijding van de bundel aan Bernardus de Bosch een vignet door dezelfden en een portret van de dichteres door J. Houbraken, 1771, naar J. Marinkelle, 1772, wat overigens een onmogelijke chronologische volgorde is. Halfleren band, bovenzijde rug en hoeken beschadigd, gedrukt op zwaar papier. Buijnsters-Smets, 'Daniël Bruyninx, konstig miniatuur pourtraitschilder', in: Antiek I (1967) 10, p.19-25; Hedendaagsche vaderlandse letteroefeningen 1772, p.314; Marinkelle, Oprecht verhaal wegens het portraitteeren van mejuffrouw Sara Maria van der Wilp [...] ter zyner verdediging (Haarlem, etc., ca. 1772); Van Strien, 'Sara Maria van der Wilp. Een gevarieerd oeuvre', in: Met en zonder lauwerkrans (Amsterdam 1997); Witsen Geysbeek VI, p.512; F & vd B p.892"."Verzamelde gedichten van de Amsterdamse dichteres Sara Maria van der Wilp (1716 - 1803), waarvan de verschijning de recensent van de Vaderlandsche Letteroefeningen in 1772 enthousiast deed uitroepen: Men beleeft thans in ons Vaderland de Eeuw der Dichteressen; daar de eene en andere der beminnelyke Kunne zich loflyk voordoen, als aankweeksters der edele Poëzye. Hij bewondert voorts de manlyke deftigheid van haar verzen, wellicht geïnspireerd door het bijschrift van Bernardus de Bosch bij Van der Wilps portret (... En weet hier mannlyk naar den eersten prys te streeven...).De toen 56-jarige dichteres toonde zich echter bijzonder ontsticht door het diepe décolleté waarmee de schilder Marinkelle haar had afgebeeld, waardoor zij er uit zag als een onbeschaamde hoer, met borsten als koe-uiëren, zoals zij de schilder voorhield. In zijn 'Oprecht verhaal, wegens het portraitteeren van mejuffrouw Sara Maria van der Wilp' onthulde Marinkelle echter, dat het Van der Wilp was geweest die een en ander maal had verordonneerd haar af te beelden zonder muts, en met een blooten boezem. Hoe dan ook, de dichteres liet stante pede een nieuw portret maken en graveren door respectievelijk Daniël Bruyninx en Reinier Vinkeles en daarop lijkt Van der Wilp haar verontwaardiging nog steeds niet te boven gekomen. Los bijgevoegd het portret door Bruyninx en Vinkeles."

Included in the selected relevant entries are several articles on sculpture written by Jaucourt. These sections cover bronzes, contemporary sculpture and sculptors, marble sculpture, stone and wood sculpture, plaster sculptures, and sculptures en carton. They are an example of the meticulous approach with which Jaucourt took to his work. He provides close detail on the methods and equipment used, the sculptors and the finished artwork. Although he was educated primarily in the sciences and mechanics, Jaucourt also approaches subjects ranging from the history of sculpture to the sculpture of different nations and regions. The plates are just as important as the text, reflecting similar topics with views of the artists' studios, practises, and tools. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Grant of arms donated by Stephen Martin Leake, Garter and Charles Townley, Clarenceux, Kings of Arms, to Roope Harris (1747-1821) of Bristol. Roope Harris became Roope Harris Roope afterwards.

      United Kingdom, d.d. 20 september 1771. Vellum charter, 33x43 cm. Good condition. Copperplate hand engrossed, calligraphy, with large hand coloured coat-of-arms. Two wax seals of the mentioned kings of arms, in perfect condition, in decorated tin cases, attached to the document by silk ribbons. The charter comes encased in a contemporary oblong leather case, decorated with embossed, gilt patterns, lined with decorated coloured paper, broken at the hinges and worn. This charter confirms the coat-of-arms of Roope to Roope Harris of Bristol, who took the name and the coat-of-arms of Roope on 22 July 1771. Roope Harris (1747-1821), son of Ambrose Harris, son of Nicholas Harris of Dittisham, inherited the Roope estate at Greenway on the river Dart from Margaret Deeble (Margaret' Deebles Will 1777), so long as he agreed to take on the surname of Roope, hence the name 'Roope Harris Roope'. Roope Harris is the link between two branches of the Roope family, the Roope's of Little Dartmouth, Devon and the Roope's of Oporto, Dittisham, Kingswear etc. Greenway was bought by Agatha Christie in 1938 as a summer house for her and her husband Max Mallowan. The house is now owned by the National Trust. Greenway was previously owned by The Gilberts who finally sold Greenway around 1700 to Thomas Martyn, about whom nothing is known, but through him the property descended to the Roopes, a family of successful Dartmouth merchants. By 1780 Roope Harris Roope was the owner. He had apparently been born in Massachusetts (USA) and later travelled widely on business whilst also having 15 children, 6 of them born at Greenway. In 1791 Roope sold Greenway to Edward Elton, a Bristol merchant venturer and MP (his family also owned Clevedon Court). H168.

        Sculpture Fonte des Statues Équestres (Casting on Equestrian Statues)

      1771 - Encyclopà die, ou dictionnaire raisonnà des sciences, des arts et des mà tiers. Plates vol. 8 Paris (1771) Folio, 253 x 393mm. 3 pages of descriptive text & 5 loose plates with their accompanying text sheet. Slight browning to margins, a little spotting otherwise very good. The 5 plates and descriptive text for the entry of Sculpture Fonte des Statues Équestres from volume VIII of plates. Plates are numbered 1-5. Plate 3 is continued on a second sheet, Plate 4 is a double plate, and plate 5 is a triple plate. 1 page (822) from volume XIV of the Encyclopà die (1765) including Observations sur les chevaux des statues à questres 2 pages (497 & 502) from volume XV of the Encyclopà die (1765) including information on Équestre Statue With some browning to a few leaves. This suite of plates is noteworthy as a record of the practises of sculptors of this period. The illustrations and their explanations are influenced heavily by the writing and descriptions of Germain Boffrand. Boffrand had served as the first architect of numerous 18th-century noblemen, and had been a witness to the casting of Louis XIV's statue by Giradon and Jean-Balthazar Keller. The statue was melted during the revolution, and only a smaller model remains, which can be found in the Musà e du Louvre. On hearing of the troubles Lemoyne was having casting a similar statue of Louis XV, Boffrand sought to assist Lemoyne, recognising that he was the only remaining assistant who had taken notes at the earlier casting. Boffrand wrote his Description de ce qui a à tà Practiquà pour Fondre en Bronze d'un Seul Jet la Figure Équestre de Louis XIV, enabling Lemoyne to complete his work, although this statue was also later destroyed in the Revolution. Diderot's plates, here presented, are an almost exact copy of Boffrand's originals, only shrunk and simplified to suit the Encylopà die's format. Included with these plates is the relevant entry for equestrian statues written by Jaucourt, the 18th-century aristocrat who wrote around one quarter of the Encyclopà die voluntarily.

        The Green Turtle

      London: The Natural History of Carolina, Florida & The Bahamas Volume II. 1771 - Sheet Dimension: 14 x 20 in. Frame Dimension: 23.5 x 29.5 in. Copperplate Engraving with original hand-color. Catesby’s Natural History is considered to be one of the great achievements of natural science in the 18th century. In 1725, he extended his research to the Bahamas. The notebooks that he filled with drawings and the packing-cases of preserved speciments were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of heretofore unknown wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. The text recorded his personal observations, as well as theories, legends, and folktales gathered over the course of a decade.

Walpole, 14. Hazen, Strawberry Hill, 10. Lowndes 2819 (calling the plates of this edition "Infinitely superior"). Gibson's Library, p. 280. Late in life, Walpole described the Anecdotes as ‘the only thing I ever published of any use.' It was mainly based on the archives (40 volumes of manuscripts relating to English painters, sculptors, engravers, and architects ) he purchased from the widow of the engraver George Vertue in 1758, which Walpole wrote contained ‘an infinite quantity of new and curious things.'
