        Geschichte des Fräuleins von Sternheim. Von einer Freundin derselben aus Original-Papieren und andern zuverlässigen Quellen gezogen. Hrsg. von C. M. Wieland. 2 Bände. XXII, 367 S.; Titel, 302 S. Rote Halblederbde d. Z. auf 5 Bünden (berieben) mit goldgepr. Rückenschild.

      Leipzig, Weidmanns Erben und Reich, 1771.. . Seltene erste Ausgabe des Erstlingswerks der La Roche, das sofort begeistert aufgenommen wurde. Dieser wohl bedeutendste Frauenroman des 18. Jahrhunderts wird auch als der erste psychologische Roman der deutschen Literatur bezeichnet. Formal und inhaltlich abhängig von Richardsons Briefromanen (z. B. 'Clarissa', 1748) sind hier - anders als beim englischen Vorbild - erzählerische Partien eingefügt, vor allem aber klingt ein neuer Ton in der Schilderung der Charaktere an: Die Typen werden mit alltäglichen Zügen individualisiert und mit empfindsamer Einfühlung dargestellt. C. M. Wieland, La Roches Vetter und Jugendliebe, begleitete das Buch mit einer Vorrede, Herder und Goethe, dessen 'Leiden des jungen Werthers' (1774) sie beeinflusste, nahmen es anerkennend auf. Sophie von La Roche (1731-1807) war die Großmutter von Clemens Brentano und Bettina v. Arnim. - Unterschiedlich gebräunt oder stockfleckig, die Deckel stärker berieben, gutes Exemplar. - Goed.

        VOYAGE AUTOUR DU MONDE, PAR LA FRÉGATE DU ROI LA BOUDEUSE ET LA FLUTE L'ÉTOILE, EN 1766, 1767, 1768 & 1769.

      Paris: Saillant & Nyon, 1771. - [8],417,[3]pp. with twenty-three maps and plates. Half-title. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt, leather label. Minor shelf wear. Small contemporary bookplate of the Duc de Decres on front pastedown. Very minor foxing to the margins of the half-title and last leaf. A remarkably bright and clean copy, fine. First edition of this important work. Bougainville first undertook an expedition to the Falkland Islands and Patagonia, at his own expense, to secure them for French colonization. To avoid possible conflict due to Spain's envy of this acquisition, France gave up the territory to her. The narrative of that expedition was related in THE HISTORY OF A VOYAGE TO THE MALOUINE ISLANDS. (Paris, 1770). After delivering the Falklands to Spain, Bougainville was ordered across the Pacific to the East Indies, and then home. The completion of the three- year voyage marked the first official French circumnavigation and inspired much French interest in the Pacific islands. The party collected abundant natural history information concerning the regions visited; a chapter on the Falklands gives the history of their settlement as well. The expedition stopped at many South Sea islands, among them Tahiti, and included is a long section on that island as well as a vocabulary of the natives. Bougainville was in Buenos Aires when the order arrived for the expulsion of the Jesuits from Paraguay, which he describes in detail. An extraordinary capstone to this remarkable voyage was that Bougainville lost only seven out of two hundred men. "Bouganville also touched at the Moluccas, Batavia, and Mauritius before he arrived once again in France in 1769. Although Bougainville made only a few important discoveries, he created a great deal of interest among the French in the Pacific, which resulted in the voyages of Marc-Joseph Marion de Fresne and Jean Francois de La Perouse. The largest island in the Solomons and two straits in the Pacific bear his name, and the tropical flowering vine called bougainvillea was also named for him. Bougainville later took part in the American Revolution, survived the French Revolution, and was made a senator and count of the Empire by Napoleon I. Bougainville's accounts of Pacific Islanders in this work echoed Jean Jacques Rousseau's concepts of the "noble savage," and inspired Denis Diderot to write his denunciation of European contact with indigenous peoples" - Hill. This copy belonged to Admiral, later Duc, Denis Decrès, Napoleon’s Minister for the Navy and the Colonies from 1801 to 1814, with his bookplate on the front pastedown. Decrès was the Minister directly responsible for Nicholas Baudin's voyage to Australia. Therefore, there could have been much instructive value in the present volume for Decrès, who perhaps used Bougainville's experiences with regard to Baudin, to assist in the various enquiries into voyage events, many of them relating to Baudin’s unfortunate command. A highly distinguished French naval provenance for one of the country's legendary travel narratives. HILL 163. SABIN 6864. O'REILLY & REITMAN 283. BORBA DE MORAES, p.115. DU RIETZ 117. COX I, p.55.

      Hamburg, Johann Joachim Christoph Bode, 1771.. . Erste öffentliche Sammelausgabe der Gedichte, von Klopstock selbst herausgegeben. Sie begründete das bis heute maßgebliche Klopstock-Bild, dass den Lyriker gegenüber dem "Messias-Dichter" bevorzugt. Klopstock unterzog die Oden "einer Revision; einige schied er aus, andere überarbeitet er, und zwar nach Maßgabe der dichtungstheoretischen Überlegungen, mit denen er zwanzig Jahre lang seine dichterischen Arbeiten reflektiert hatte. ... Klopstocks Odendichtung übte einen nachhaltigen Einfluß auf Hölderlin, Rilke sowie besonders George und seinen Kreis aus" (KNLL). Das Werk wurde in Bodes Hamburger Druckerei auf gestreiftem römischem Velinpapier gedruckt und zeichnet sich durch schöne typographische Gestaltung und sorgfältigen Druck aus. Die Seiten 221/222 und 245/246 als Kartonblätter. Gewidmet ist das Buch Andreas Peter v. Bernstorff, dem standhaften liberalen Außenminister Dänemarks ab 1773. Er gilt als Wohltäter Dänemarks in wirtschaftlicher wie politischer Hinsicht. Besonders ist ihm die Befreiung der Bauern in Dänemark von persönlichen und wirtschaftlichen Fesseln zu danken. Auch an der Aufhebung der Leibeigenschaft in Schleswig-Holstein hatte er maßgeblichen Anteil. - Kaum fleckig, schönes Exemplar. In diesem prachtvollen Zustand sehr selten. - Goedeke IV 1, 169, 7.

Finally the sixty-nine page list of flora and fauna is a fascinating record of known species. John Reinhold Forster sailed with James Cook on his second voyage to find terra australis as a botanist.

        Naturlig og oeconomisk Beskrivelse over Hølands Præstegield i Agershuus-Stift i Norge.

      - Trykt i det Kongl. Universitets Bogtrykkerie hos A.H. Godiches Eferleverske ved F.C. Godiche, Kiøbenhavn 1771. 8vo. (26)+334+(1) sider, inklusiv tilegnelsesbladet til Struensee. Med et udfoldeligt kort og en udfoldelig tavle. Indbundet i et samtidigt helbind af flammet kavelskind og rygforgyldning. Med rødt snit. Bindet med let slitage på hjørner og kanter, rygtitelfeltet let frønnet. Gammelt navn på titelbladet (den danske præst Jacob Christian Lindberg). * Norsk-fødte Reier Gjellebøls (1737-1803) sjældne topografiske og landøkonomiske beskrivelse over sin fødeegn Høland. Gjellebøl var en del af brødremenigheden og fik sit uddannelse i København, inden han overtog et præstekald i Valle i Norge. Gjellebøl udgav bogen i efteråret 1771 og tilegnede smigrende sit værk til Tvillingrigernes egentlige magthaver Johann Friedrich Struensee, - 'men da den almægtige minister blev styrtet faa uker senere, skyndte G. sig at be de nye magthavere om tilgivelse for sin "feil" og at faa dedikationen fjernet fra hele restoplaget af boken.' (Norsk Biografisk Leksikon). Dette eksemplar er helt komplet, med det prekære tilegnelsesblad bevaret.** Et af de få eksempler på skrifter tilegnet Struensee, og utvivlsomt en publikation, han har sat pris på, i og med den jo afspejler oplysningstidens nyttebetonede indsamling af data og viden. I dansk historie glider Struensees oprigtigt mente og filosofisk funderede reformiver i baggrunden til frodel for rollen som lykkerider og skørlevner.

        Tapissier. [Tapestry-Weaving]

      1771. DIDEROT. Tapestry-weaving, in 3 parts: 7 pp., 45 plates, of which 11 are double-page.From vol. 8. Folio, bound in half terra-cotta morocco over salmon cloth boards, gilt.Tapissier, with a view of the Boutique, and the many products available therein, including curtains, bedspreads, upholstery, and so forth. With two additional suites, entitled Tapisserie de basse-lisse des Gobelins and Tapisserie de haute-lisse des Gobelins, which illustrate the practice of the famous Gobelins tapestry factories. These tapestries were decorated with pictorial subjects; painted; embroidered; woven in colours, gold, and silver thread, and so forth. Alan Summerly Cole distinguishes between the practices of Gobelins and Beauvais: "At the Gobelins, the warp threads are stretched in frames standing vertically (high warp or haute lisse): at Beauvais in frames placed horizontally with the ground (low warp or basse lisse)."This suite of plates and text derives from the great French eighteenth-century Encyclopédie edited by Denis Diderot and Jean Le Rond D'Alembert. The Diderot & D'Alembert Encyclopédie remains "A monument in the history of European thought; the acme of the age of reason; a prime motivating force in undermining the Ancien Régime and in heralding the French Revolution; a permanent source for all aspects of eighteenth-century civilization..." (Printing and the Mind of Man).

The 'Table Explicative" advertises 18 "Cahiers" of six leaves each on a variety of themes and subjects developed here, which are available separately from the publisher ("qui se vendent séparément"). A second part of that suite was also formed (referred to misleadingly in the Berlin Catalogue as "IIeme Volume") which continues the series of engravings available in 24 more "cahiers" - in other words, Cahiers 19 - 43 - also, presumably, sold separaately. The absence of any of the 43 cahiers should in no way,we believe, be taken as an indication of incompleteness. Tipped in and laid down at the back is a folio plate, "La Sphere Artificielle" [showing three globes: Terrestrial, Celestial & Armillary Globes]. Paris Chez Desnos, Rus St. Jacques, 1760.

        Voyage Litteraire de la Grece, ou Lettres sur les Grecs, Anciens et Mo

      1771. GREECE - Literary Voyage. Voyage Litteraire de la Grèce, ou Lettres sur les Grecs anciens et modernes, avec un parallèle de leurs moeurs. By Pierre-Augustin Guys. Two volumes. xvi, 420; iv, 244 pp. 12mo., 160 x 95 mm, bound in French contemporary beige half calf, light brown and pale green spine labels. Paris: chez la veuve Duchesne, 1771. Scarce First Edition of this unusual "literary" travel book to Greece, Turkey, and Italy by Pierre-Augustin Guys (1720-1799), physican of Lyons and member of the Academy of Sciences and Belles-Lettres of Marseille. "He may be said to have been the first folklorist who directed his attention to the Orient. His work is written in such an agreeable style, his observations so delicate and his comparisons so subtle that it makes excellent reading even today" (Iorga, as quoted in Cox). "Guys had spent more than 30 years in the Levant engaged in commercial pursuits, having been sent in 1739 to the business house of his uncles in Constantinople. His literary and antiquarian studies led him to the conclusion that the modern Greeks were direct descendants of the ancients, and his book is full of comparisons between the ancient and modern Greeks on every conceivable subject. It is in the form of letters. This successful and popular book played an important part in developing philhellenic sentiments in France" (Leonora Navari, Blackmer Catalogue). Half-title of volume I slightly spotted, otherwise in fine state. Cox I, 231. Cf. Blackmer 769 (third edition).

        Cours d'architecture ou traite de la decoration

      1771. BLONDEL, J.-F. Cours d'Architecture, ou traité de la décoration, distribution & construction des bâtiments... continue [vols. 5-6] par M. Patte. Together nine volumes. Text (vols. 1-6): xxxiv, 478, [2]; [4], lxiv, 468, [4]; [4], cii, [2], 460; [4], cxiv, [2], 432; xxxii, 504; xxviii, 520 pp. Plates (vols. 7-9): title, 2 ff., 22 plates, title, 93 plates; title, 1 f., plates 1-40, 40bis, 41-73, half-title, title, 51 plates; 1 f., 85 plates, 1 f., plates 86-136. Altogether illustrated with 377 engraved plates, of which 89 are folding and 38 are double-page. 8vo., 201 x 120 mm, spines in early twentieth-century French calf over eighteenth-century French marbled paper boards, red labels, compartments gilt. Paris: Desaint, 1771-1773, and 1777. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of the 'Petit Blondel,' the most influential and authoritative textbook on architecture of its day. "The century's most eminent and prolific author [on architecture] was Jacques-François Blondel, an energetic practitioner and teacher (who apparently was no relation to his great seventeenth-century namesake). His Architecture française was published in four volumes between 1752 and 1756. It was followed by his nine-volume Cours d'architecture which appeared between 1771 and 1777. This included lectures he had given in his own school of arts since 1750, and at the Académie Royale d'Architecture since 1756. The Cours d'architecture marked a move away from the orders and proportions which had preoccupied François Blondel a century before, towards the emulation of good examples from recent French architecture... Jacques-François Blondel chose to present a great array of building types and decorative features, echoing his massive survey of the French achievement in Architecture française and stressing the variety of external appearance that could be achieved within classical proportions... Perhaps the most novel feature of Blondel's lectures was his interest in the houses of the middle class. Here, Blondel made a strong call for proportion and simplicity. He wanted decoration to be reserved for palaces and hôtels. He nevertheless hoped that a range of harmonious domestic styles could be developed for Paris, with each district having its own character" (Anthony Sutcliff, Paris: An Architectural History, pp. 48-49). In 1743 Blondel opened the first independent school of architecture in France; it was to become a major center for training the leaders of the neoclassical movement, including Sir William Chambers, Pierre Patte, Desprez, Boullée, and Ledoux. After Blondel's death (in 1774) the work was completed by Pierre Patte, his disciple and former student. The work is illustrated with 377 engraved plates (many folding), mainly designs by contemporary architects. For an extensive assessment of the work, see especially Robin Middleton's "J.F. Blondel and the Cours d'Architecture," in International Society of Architectural Historians (December 1959). A fine copy. Fowler 51. Berlin Katalog 2429. Millard, French 29.

        Tapissier. [Tapestry-Weaving]

      1771. DIDEROT. Tapestry-weaving, in 3 parts: 7 pp., 45 plates, of which 11 are double-page. From vol. 8. Folio, bound in half terra-cotta morocco over salmon cloth boards, gilt. |~||~||~||~||~| Tapissier, with a view of the Boutique, and the many products available therein, including curtains, bedspreads, upholstery, and so forth. With two additional suites, entitled Tapisserie de basse-lisse des Gobelins and Tapisserie de haute-lisse des Gobelins, which illustrate the practice of the famous Gobelins tapestry factories. These tapestries were decorated with pictorial subjects; painted; embroidered; woven in colours, gold, and silver thread, and so forth. Alan Summerly Cole distinguishes between the practices of Gobelins and Beauvais: "At the Gobelins, the warp threads are stretched in frames standing vertically (high warp or haute lisse): at Beauvais in frames placed horizontally with the ground (low warp or basse lisse)." This suite of plates and text derives from the great French eighteenth-century Encyclopédie edited by Denis Diderot and Jean Le Rond D'Alembert. The Diderot & D'Alembert Encyclopédie remains "A monument in the history of European thought; the acme of the age of reason; a prime motivating force in undermining the Ancien Régime and in heralding the French Revolution; a permanent source for all aspects of eighteenth-century civilization..." (Printing and the Mind of Man).
