         L'Ami de la Maison. Comédie en trois actes et en vers mêlée d'Ariettes Représentée devant sa Majesté à Fontainebleau le 26 octobre 1771 et sur le Théâtre de la Comédie Italienne, le Jeudi 14 mai 1772. Dédiée à Monseigneur le Duc de Duras.

      Paris: Houbaut; Lyon: Castaud ? 1772 - engraved throughout (both music and text), pp. [ii], 169, folio, contemporary green boards, upper board with gilt title, both boards with gilt arms of the Duc de Brancas, hinges cracked, backstrip slightly soiled,edges rubbed, a few smudges on rear board, good. Grétry was one of the leading proponents of early French opéra comique, and, following Voltaire's suggestion, he established himself in Paris in 1767. Here, he wrote more than 60 works for the stage to great acclaim. The pension which he was eventually granted by the King was cancelled during the Revolution, but, finding favour with the new regime, doubled by Napoleon who also granted him the Légion d'honneur. In L'Ami de la Maison, a re-telling of Marmontel's Le connaisseur, Grétry uses a number of techniques which anticipate Mozart's Figaro, notably his use of stylistic parody and alternation between the comic style and the 'high' style, thus creating an effect of complex sensibility.

Vetenskaps-Academien, vid præsisii nedläggande, den 31 Octob. 1778.Stockholm, Johan Georg Lange, 1778. 8vo. Bound as sewn.

      Du Rietz, Polynesiana 1217; Stafleu & Cowan V, p. 774; Waller 11011; not in Beddie; Hill. First (and only early) edition of Sparrman's lecture to the Swedish Royal Academy of Science on the need for further scientific research in the South Pacific, especially concerning its natural history. Based on his own observations as naturalist on Cook's second voyage, 1772-1775, it discusses people, geography and natural history, especially in New Zealand, with comments on particular botanical species (the author was already growing two in Sweden). Sparrman (1748-1820), a botanist and physician who studied under Linnaeus, notes the importance of the still largely uncharted New Holland (Australia), but concentrates on New Zealand. He gives an account of the current state of research and his own vision of the region's future. The talents of the New Zealanders impressed him, so he thought Europeans could "civilize" them. This was his first publication about Cook's voyage. A reply by the Academy's secretary, Pehr Wilhelm Wargentin, appears on pp. 36-39.Some marginal dampstain, but otherwise a good copy and wholly untrimmed, with all bolts still unopened. Some copies have an engraved vignette pasted on the title-page, not in the present issue.

         The Natural History of the Tea-Tree, with Observations on the Medical Qualities of Tea, and Effects of Tea-drinking

      printed for Edward and Charles Dilly, London 1772 - viii, 64pp., plus hand-coloured engraved plate illustrating the tea plant. Expertly bound to style in half period russia and marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands, red morocco lettering piece First edition, complete with the hand coloured frontispiece. The Natural History of the Tea-Tree is actually a translation and expansion of Lettsom's Latin doctoral dissertation entitled "Observationes ad vires Theae pertinentes" (M.D., Leyden, 1769) and contains an accurate botanical description of the plant, about which Linnaeus, in a complimentary letter, allowed himself corrected. Lettsom, a physician of great learning, discusses the varieties and methods of curing and preparing tea in China and Japan. He astutely points out that "It is indeed probable that the North American summers in the same latitude with Pekin[g], would suit .Tree better than ours [in England]." In the second part of this work Lettsom deals extensively with the history of medicinal uses of tea. The lovely hand coloured frontispiece was painted and engraved by J. Miller after a drawing in the possession of Dr. Fothergill of a flowering specimen at Sion-House. Wellcome III 504; Nissen BBI 1182; Henry 966. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[1]f, xxxii, vii, [i], 208, [38] pp; [1]f, 356pp. Original blue paper wrappers, with ink signature "Salter" on front covers and "Junius" on the spines, uncut edges. (Expert and almost invisible repairs to tears in spines). Each volume contained in a later green cloth chemise, within a slipcase with green cloth sides and green goatskin spine, divided into six panels with raised bands and gilt panels, lettered in the second, fourth and fifth panels and at the foot. Junius is a collection of private and open letters critical of the government of George III from an anonymous polemicist, along with replies, written between 1769 and 1772. Several unauthorised editions were published before 1772, but Woodfall's editions of 1772 were believed to have been arranged by "Junius" and include the opening "Dedication to the English Nation and the Preface in which he grants ownership and copyright of the letters to Woodfall. Woodfall published three editions or issues dated 1772, and there is also an undated edition. This issue (ESCT T29288) contains a Table of Contents (bound after the Preface) and Index in vol.1. This copy is remarkable for being uncut in the original wrappers, and comes in an expensive slipcase and pair of chemises, which probably date from c.1925. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Médailles sur les principaux événemens de l'empire de Russie depuis le règne de Pierre Le Grand jusqu'à celui de Catherine II. Avec des explications historiques.

      Sommer Potsdam 1772 - Folio (37.5 x 24.5 cm). Engraved portrait frontispiece by Daniel Berger, title with engraved vignette, [3] with head-piece engraved by Berger after Michel Gerin,111 each with engraved medals, [3] ll. errata and table; browning to some pages. Contemporary vellum, red morocco gilt label to spine; some minor spotting, label chipped. Serge Lifar's fine example, with very wide margins, of the uncommon first edition of this Russian chronicle depicting more than 100 medals issued during the first century of "modern Russia", that is from the birth of Peter the Great in 1672 up to 1770. Such medals were traditionally minted to mark an event of historic significance, such as a military victory, the coronation of a new Tsar/Tsarina, the establishment of a cultural institution etc. Ricaud chose here to reproduce in engraving both sides of each medal, accompanied by the corresponding Imperial decree in French, mentioning however the Russian words meant to be engraved on the medal. We find celebrated all great events of 18th-century Russia, such as the accessions to the throne of Peter the Great, Catherine I, Anna Ioanovna, Elisabeth I and Catherine II, the establishment of the Black sea and Baltic sea navies, victories of the Russian army during the Great Northern War, as well as wars with Sweden and Turkey, the opening of the Russian Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg. Ricaud de Tiregale (ca. 1725 - 1772) was a French architect and engineer, whose main achievement was the construction of the large baroque Potocki Palace in Warsaw. As a lieutenant-colonel on His Majesty's King of Prussia Frederick II service, the author spent most of his life in Poland, which at that time was divided between the Russian and Prussian Empires. Greatly admiring Catherine the Great, Ricaud de Tiregale dedicated his main work to her. Brunet IV-1274. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Cartoons: XIII plates by Ottaviani after Savorelli and Camporesi, each pl. made of 2 sheets pasted together; Part 2: title 'Seconda parte' and 12 folding pl. by Volpato after Taurinensis, each pl. made of 2 sheets pasted together; Part 3: title 'Terza ed ultima parte', folding letterpress leaf 'Aux Amateurs des Beaux-Arts', general title engr. by Volpato after Camporesi, large foling plate on three sheets pasted together 'Spaccato per il longo.', [2] folding plates A and B and XIV folding pl., all by Ottaviani after Savorelli and Camporesi and on two sheets pasted together -- in all 3 engr. titles and 42 plates; one plate with a small closed tear, titles of Part 2 and 3 bound out of order (Part 3 should read Part 1, Cartoons should read Part 2 and Part 2 should be the third). Early 19th-c. dark burgundy half morocco over dark green cloth boards, gilt ornated and lettered morocco labels to covers, gilt rules and blind rollwork to covers; lightly rubbed and soiled. A very attractive example of these celebrated and spectacular engravings of Bramante's and Raphael's paintings for the Pope's private apartments. Scarce complete, with the rare letterpress Introduction. Loggie de Raphaele nel Vaticano was a work commissioned by Pope Clement XIII, at the bidding of Catherine the Great, to portray one of the best kept secrets of the Renaissance: his 'loggie', consisting of 13 bays in the Pope's private apartments, which were beautifully decorated by Bramante and, upon his death in 1514, finished by Raphael and his pupil Giovanni da Udine. The present plates, designed and engraved in the 1770s, depict the pilaster frescoes, in stucco relief, of the doorways and windows. They are renowned for their highly stylised portrayal of Classical and Biblical scenes, figures, motifs, mythological characters, fabulous beasts, fruits, birds and animals. The fanciful "grotesqueness" of Raphael's and mainly da Udine's designs show how much they were inspired by the recently discovered Golden House (Domus Aurea) of Nero. Indeed the term "grotesque" was born out of the Loggie, having been applied to it due to the similarity of the designs in the subterranean rooms or "grottoes" of Nero's Palace and these pilaster's frescoes. Some commentators place these designs amongst the defining pieces of the Italian Renaissance with Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel and Massacio's Carmine Church. With contemporary provenance: the present set was acquired from the Rooke family's estate. William Rooke was known to have travelled in Italy in 1777-78 and it is believed that he acquired this work during his travels as a memento of his tour. His collection, which reflected his interest in the Grand Tour, eventually formed part of a well known library at The Ivy at Chippenham in Wiltshire, owned by the Rooke Family from the mid-nineteenth century until 1973.

         Fully manuscript commission document, signed, appointing Enoch Page a "Captain of the Tenth Company, of the Fourth Regiment of Militia in... Province of New Hampshire".

      Nottingham, NH: Twelth day of August, , 1772. Half sheet of laid paper with indistinct watermark of the Royal Arms within garter, surmounted by a crown (79 x 304 mm), papered seal intact, text in a neat clerical hand, signed by Cilley with a flourish. Paper with light browning overall, creases from old vertical median, and trifold horizontal folding, associated splitting neatly repaired some time ago with translucent paper adhesive tape, a few minor edge-splits, but very good. Exemplary pre-Revolutionary War military document, linking two men with extensive service during the period. Joseph Cilley (1734-99) was born in Nottingham, New Hampshire, son of Captain Joseph Cilley of the Isle of Shoals. Cilley served as an officer in the American Revolution and earlier, in 1758 seeing action in the French and Indian Wars as a sergeant on attachment with Rogers' Rangers. Men from the New Hampshire Militia - which was founded in 1680, and had been present at the capture of Louisbourg in 1745 - fought at the Battle of Lake George, the Siege of Fort William Henry, the Siege of Louisbourg (1758), the Battle of Carillon and the fall of Fort Carillon (later Ticonderoga) in 1759, the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and the Battle of Sainte-Foy near Quebec, and at the final capitulation of New France at Montreal. Cilley began his Revolutionary War service at the Battle of Lexington. In 1777 he was appointed lieutenant-colonel in the 1st New Hampshire Regiment which, under his command, fought in numerous significant engagements including Trenton, Princeton, Monmouth, and Stony Point, and through the Saratoga Campaign. In 1779 Cilley was with Clinton-Sullivan Campaign against the Six Nations in the western New York, in the same year being voted a pair of pistols by the New Hampshire Assembly "as a token of this State's good intention to reward merit in a brave officer". Following the war, in 1786 he was appointed major general of the 1st Division New Hampshire Militia, commanding the troops that put down the Paper Money Riot in Essex, NH, later that year. Cilley was elected to the New Hamshire senate, and was one of the founders of the Society of the Cincinnati in New Hampshire, serving variously as treasurer, vice-president, and president. The recipient Enoch Page (1742-1832), was Cilley's brother-in-law, being married to his sister Alice. During the Revolutionary War he was a first lieutenant in Captain Ballard's Company of Colonel Frye's Regiment, Cambridge, 14 July - 6 October, 1775, and subsequently a captain commanding a company in Col. Senter's Regment at Rhode Island, August-December, 1777. A highly attractive piece, we have been unable to trace any other documentary material from Cilley on the market.

         Esprit de Leibnitz ou recueil de pensées choisies, sur la religion, la morale, l'histoire, la philosophie, etc., extraites de toutes ses ¿uvres latines et françaises

      Jean-Marie Bruyset, Lyon 1772 - 2 vol. in-12 XLVIII-463 pp. et 2 548 pp.- (5) Édition originale, plein veau marbré, dos à cinq nerfs ornés légèrement frottés, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge sur le premier volume, tranches marbrées. Travail d'insecte au niveau des mors des deux volumes (principalement sur le second), légers manques au niveau des coiffes et sur le premier plat du second volume. Intérieur en bon état. Selon la notice biographique d'Emery dans le Dictionnaire de Michaud : « L'auteur se proposa de réunir tout ce que Leibnitz avait écrit sur la religion. Affligé de l'esprit de son siècle, il voulait le ramener à la religion par une grande autorité, et lui prouver que l'incrédulité n'était pas, comme on s'en vantait, le partage de toute tête pensante, et qu'on pouvait y opposer philosophe à philosophe. Il rapporte en effet une foule de passages qui montrent combien Leibnitz était attaché à la révélation, et combien il était même instruit dans la théologie proprement dite. » [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Beschreibung von Arabien. Aus eigenen Beobachtungen und im Lande selbst gesammelten Nachrichten abgefasset.

      1772 1772 - Copenhagen: Nicolaus Möller 1772. With titlevignette, vignette, 24 copperplates, genealogical table and 1 large folding map. XLVII + [3] + 431 + [1] pp. Well-preserved copy with wide margin and yellow edges bound in contemporary halfleather with coloured label and golddecorations on spine. Binding weakly marked of use. * Carsten Niebuhr was a student at the University of Göttingen. Professor J.H. Michaëlis, employed there, recommended Niebuhr to J.H.E. Bernstorff who in cooporation with the Danish government was planning an expedition to Arabia. Michaëlis regarded Niebuhr as very qualified for the task of participating as astronomer and natural historian. On the 7th of January 1761 the members of the expedition took off. They included Niebuhr, the philologist F.V. von Haven, the Swedish natural scientist Peter Forskål, the doctor C.C. Kramer and the engraver Baurenfeind. The first stop was Istanbul where they stayed for a long while before sailing to Alexandria where they stayed for nearly one year. During the stay in Egypt they made important archeologic, geographic and natural historic investigations there and on Sinai. On the 29th December 1762 they arrived in Djedda. In May 1763 F.V. von Haven and Peter Forskål died from exhaustion caused by travel complications and the unfamiliar climate. Niebuhr became leader of the expedition. During the following eight months Niebuhr traveled through Yemen, being the first European in that area. In order to survive and to protect the collected items, the party had to leave Mekka and move on to Bombay. Baurenfeind died on the way and Kramer soon after. After 14 months in Bombay Niebuhr started his journey back. On the way he visited the ruined town Persepolis where he made drawings of the most important relics and copied cuneiforms. In November he finally reached Denmark, being the only surviving member of the Arabic expedition. His copied cuneiforms were studied by Rasmus Rask and other philologists when deciphering the cuneiform alphabet.

         The Natural History of the Tea-Tree, with Observations on the Medical Qualities of Tea, and Effects of Tea-drinking

      London: printed for Edward and Charles Dilly, 1772. 4to. viii, 64pp., plus hand-coloured engraved plate illustrating the tea plant. Expertly bound to style in half period russia and marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands, red morocco lettering pieceFirst edition, complete with the hand coloured frontispiece.The Natural History of the Tea-Treeis actually a translation and expansion of Lettsom's Latin doctoral dissertation entitled "Observationes ad vires Theae pertinentes" (M.D., Leyden, 1769) and contains an accurate botanical description of the plant, about which Linnaeus, in a complimentary letter, allowed himself corrected. Lettsom, a physician of great learning, discusses the varieties and methods of curing and preparing tea in China and Japan. He astutely points out that "It is indeed probable that the North American summers in the same latitude with Pekin[g], would suit ...Tree better than ours [in England]." In the second part of this work Lettsom deals extensively with the history of medicinal uses of tea.The lovely hand coloured frontispiece was painted and engraved by J. Miller after a drawing in the possession of Dr. Fothergill of a flowering specimen at Sion-House.Wellcome III 504; Nissen BBI 1182; Henry 966.

        Religious Fresco - Last Supper

      Rome 1772 - This impressive large folio, copper-plate engraving comes from Logge di Rafaele nel Vaticano, published in Rome between 1772 and 1777. Plates from this work are after the elaborate paintings found in the Vatican by Raphael (Rafaello) Sanzio d’Urbino, one of the most inspiring of Italian High Renaissance artists. During the early 1500s, Urbino spent his days in the Vatican decorating the pilasters found on the main floor of the interior apartments. Logge was one of the earliest works to show the interior design of the Vatican. Each plate was engraved by Giovanni Ottoviani after Gaetano Savorelli (painter), Ludovico Teseo (draughtsman), and Pietro Camporesi (architect). This plate has recently-applied professional opaque coloring, painted in a manner similar to the style of the late 1700s. Vibrant, strong colors were used making this engraving an astonishing work of art. Logge, as it was originally published, contained 28 plates with the intention of them being integrated into 14 larger plates. The resulting combination is being offered here. --- Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions. The work is in very good to excellent condition overall. Some minor imperfections due to age are to be expected, and most imperfections (if present) can be noted in the picture. There is generally some very light foxing or smudging in the margins which does not affect the overall quality. The engravings are quite large and our current photography set up didn't allow for all of the edges in some of the pictures.
