        Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano.

      RAFAËL INSPIREERT DE NEO-KLASSIEKENDecoratieve pilasters met fruit, bloemen en wingerd. (Deels in de tijd, deels later) met de hand gekleurde gravures, elk gedrukt van twee koperen platen, uitgegeven te Rome 1772. Afkomstig uit de serie (uitgegeven in boekvorm) "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano"' en gegraveerd door Giovanni Ottaviani en Giovanni Volpato naar tekeningen van Gaetano Savorelli. Formaat elk ca. 107,3 x 40,6 cmRafael Sanzio da Urbino (1483 '" 1520), in het Nederlands beter bekend als Rafaël, vertrok vanuit Florence naar Rome vermoedelijk omdat hem ter ore was gekomen dat er in het Vaticaan, destijds onder Paus Julius II, privé-vertrekken waren die opnieuw gedecoreerd moesten worden. In 1509 kreeg hij de opdracht voor één van de vertrekken. Met succes, al heel snel gold hij in het Vaticaan, op Michelangelo na, als de belangrijkste kunstenaar. Hij zou er de rest van zijn korte leven blijven. Rafaël en zijn assistenten maakten de wand- en plafondschilderingen in de Loggia van het Vaticaan in 1518-1519.De prenten tonen de decoratie van de Loggia op de belangrijkste verdieping van het appartementen gebouw van het Vaticaan.De prenten zijn veelal een combinatie van Rafaëlitsche design elementen omdat de originele fresco"s niet altijd zichtbaar meer waren. Het resultaat sprak de smaak van het publiek aan het einde van de 18e eeuw enorm aan en legde de grondslag voor de grotesken in de neo-classistische periode.Prijs: € 2.250,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling)/stuk.

        La Salameide poemetto giocoso con le note

      Appresso Guglielmo Zerletti 1772 In 8vo (cm 21,5), cartonato coevo colorato (minime mancanze e spellature), antiporta incisa, pp. (10), cxxxv, (3). Titolo inciso con vignetta in rame al centro. Vignetta in rame all'inizio del primo canto. Un po' sciolto, insignificante macchia al margine esterno delle ultime carte, ma OTTIMA COPIA intonsa con barbe.EDIZIONE ORIGINALE di uno dei più riusciti poemetti di argomento gastronomico della letteratura italiana. «Fra i poemi Apiciani in genere giocosi è questo uno dei più leggiadri e faceti che si abbia la lingua nostra, la bizzarra invenzione di esso, l'elegante ed evidente modo di raccontare e descrivere, la forbitezza e proprietà  della dizione, il fino lepore dovunque sparso, e la peregrina erudizione onde è infiorato, e che più opportunamente per via di note si manifesta, ne rendono la lettura piacevole oltre modo, come quella di presso che tutte le altre poesie bernesche dell'autore, per le quali aveva non comune facilità  e genio» (A. Lombardi, Storia della letteratura italiana nel secolo XVIII, Modena, 1829, p. 345). \ Il nome dell'autore si deduce dal divertente avviso ai lettori dello stampatore. Il poema si compone di quattro canti, in cui sono elogiati tutti i prodotti del porco, dal prosciutto alla porchetta, dalla braciola al sanguinaccio, dai tomacelli («si fanno col fegato di porco cotto lesso, poi gratugiato, e impastato con uova, cacio, ed altro ec. finalmente ridotto in pallottole involte nella rete, o sia omento del porco, si cuoce in padella, o teglia», pp. CXIII - IV) al cotechino, dal salame di fegato alla salsiccia.Così esordiscono le note: «Un soldato Alemano mal sapendo esprimere in nostra lingua il salame, dal vederlo pendente da una trave e da una pertica, lo credette un frutto così secco col suo ramo, e però disse di voler del frutto di quell'albero secco. Il fatto è vero» (p. XCI). \ Il Frizzi, ferrarese, fu intimo amico del Tiraboschi. Occupò diverse cariche politico - amministrative nella sua città , in cui fondò fra l'altro l'Accademia degli Argonauti. Avendo accesso agli archivi comunali, dopo anni di ricerche pubblicò le Memorie per la Storia di Ferrara, la fino ad allora più importante storia di Ferrara dalle origini al 1598 (E. De Tipaldo, Biografia degli Italiani illustri, Venezia, 1868, vol. IV, pp. 419 - 420). \ G. Morazzoni, Il libro illustrato veneziano del Settecento, Milano, 1943, p. 232. O. Bagnasco a cura di, Catalogo del fondo italiano e latino delle opere di gastronomia sec. XIV - XIX, Sorengo, 1994, nr. 852 Simon, 1342. Westbury, p. 197. \

        ACTS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, II GEO. III. WITH AN INDEX. [bound with:] ACTS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, 12 GEO. III. WITH AN INDEX

      Williamsburg: William Rind, 1772. Folio. Half calf and marbled boards in antique style, leather label. Last leaf backed, minor foxing and toning. Very good. Two Virginia imprints comprising session laws of the General Assembly passed July 1771 and February 1772. Various acts provide relief for owners of tobacco damaged or burned in a warehouse fire, regulations for disciplining the militia, guidelines for "Trials and Outlawries of Slaves," and others, including numerous acts creating infrastructure. The second volume is the second issue, with the correct date in the imprint. Though mentioned on both titlepages, an Index was never printed. Of the first volume, Berg writes: "Once again public money had to be raised to repay planters for tobacco lost or burned at inspection warehouses in Henrico, Chesterfield, King George, and Northampton Counties. The treasurer of the colony was authorized to borrow up to 30,000 pounds to repay those individuals suffering losses." Regarding the second volume, again from Berg: "An act passed at this session to erect and maintain a lighthouse at Cape Henry displays a rare example of financial cooperation between the colonies of Maryland and Virginia. Both colonial assemblies approved this joint venture, which was to be financed from a duty placed on ships using the Chesapeake Bay." Rare, with Berg recording only nine copies of the first and eleven copies of the second. EVANS 12265, 12591. BERG 200, 208. ESTC W8520, W23642. OCLC 6325885, 63255965.

Stitched blue wrs., large format,. 18 x 26 cm., minor edge wear, contents clean, [204]p. wood-. block printed on doulbe leaves, 8p. color prints, ca. 75 b w. illustrations on women's culture, a small old worm hole on. the first few pages, no loss. This excellent work is devoted to Japanese women, with 60 illustrations on the events of the twelve months, about 50 others on women's culture all skillfully drawn by Kitao. * With a profusion of calligraphy examples on how to write a New Year's letter & reply, festival letters, invitations, plum blossom letters, yearly celebration letters, holidays, weddings, births, 'thank you' notes, gifts &c. A very interesting illustrated book, with very good insight to the activities of the Japanese before Western influence. Charming illustrations show a wide variety of customs and festivals. * Color plates show shell gathering at the shore, Great Shrine at Edo, Shamisen & Koto playing, Madame Lady Murasaki composing her "Tales of Genji," the first novel written by a woman. With most beautiful examples of calligraphy examples. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: K. Toda: THE RYERSON COLLECTION: p.216 top of the page. * Louise Brown: BLOCK PRINTING & BOOK ILLUSTRATION IN JAPAN: p.131, bottom of the page, wherein Brown lists books signed by Sukenobu, although he died in 1751, may actually have been the work of his son. Clearly the art work is exceptionally similar if not that of Sukenobu. It is our opinion, because of the coloring, this must be the work of his son, with the innovative color added. * Not in Kerlen. * Color scans can be sent by e-mail.

        THE ENTERTAINING HISTORY OF KING PHILIP'S WAR, WHICH BEGAN IN THE MONTH OF JUNE, 1675. AS ALSO OF EXPEDITIONS MORE LATELY MADE AGAINST THE COMMON ENEMY, AND ALL INDIAN REBELS, IN THE EASTERN PARTS OF NEW-ENGLAND

      Newport, 1772. Antique three-quarter calf and marbled board, gilt, leather labels. Portrait frontispiece reinforced at gutter and corners. Plate of King Philip with old skillfully repaired tear in center, trimmed close on outer edge. Moderate wear and soiling to text; some leaves with small tears at edges, neatly repaired. Several signatures supplied from a slightly shorter copy. Overall a good copy. The second edition, after the exceedingly rare first published in Boston in 1716. One of the most popular narratives of King Philip's War, mainly narrating the prowess and adventures of Benjamin Church, one of the most important officers in the War, by his son Thomas. This edition is notable for its two engravings by Paul Revere. The frontispiece portrait of Church is not based on any original image of him, but lifted by Revere from a 1768 portrait of Charles Churchill, with a powder horn added. One of Revere's most famous engravings is the portrait of King Philip, actually based on one of Verelst's engravings of the Indian Kings of Canada. Despite this, it is notable not only as a Revere engraving but also as the first portrait of an Indian actually printed in America. This second edition contains a sketch of the life of Benjamin Church, not found in the first edition.

        The Analysis of Beauty. Written with a view of fixing the fluctuating ideas of taste.

      W. Strahan 1772 - A new edition. xxi, [3], 153, [3]pp., 2 large engraved folding plates, as often the case loosely inserted. Contemporary calf, rebacked, not recently, corners worn and some abrasions to the boards. Lower corner of the title-page torn without loss of text, and some light age browning to the paper in places. 4to. London: printed by W. Strahan, for Mrs Hogarth, and sold by her at her house in Leicester-Fields. 1772. Provenance: Ownership names at the head of the title-page of Peter Knell, 1778, and Mrs Welland, 29th August 1817. In 1932 the volume was "given to Michael Rothenstein as a mark of my affectionate sympathy" by Sydney Schiff. It was then presented to John & Myfanwy Piper by Rothenstein on October 1948. It seems to have returned to Rothenstein's possession as he later gave it to Philip Mathews in March 1954. First published in 1753, this is the only other 18th century edition to be published, and this copy bears a distinguished provenance. Sydney Schiff was a prominent art collector, mainly of modernist works, although satirised by Wyndham Lewis in The Apes of God. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nieuwe en Nauwkeurige Kaart van een gedeelte van Noord Amerika, Behelzende Nieuw Engeland, New York, Pensylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, een Stuk van Virginia, Kanada en Halifax ..

      Utrecht: J. v. Schoonhoven, 1772. Copper-engraved folding map, engraved by Carel Jacob de Huyser, full period hand-colouring. Large and detailed map from a rare edition of Kalm's Travels. This map was published within the rare first Dutch edition of Kalm's Travels, the "most trustworthy description of Swedish settlement in 18th century Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania" (Howes). Between 1748 and 1749, Peter Kalm, a noted Swedish naturalist and student of Linnaeus, traveled throughout the northeast of America, specifically in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Canada, surveying the countryside, and recording notes on the inhabitants, the fauna, and the flora of the region. Returning to his native Stockholm, Kalm there published the first edition of his observations between 1753 and 1761, with Dutch and English editions soon to follow. The Dutch edition was the first edition to contain a map. The map principally depicts the region in which Kalm travelled, as far south as the Chesapeake and as far north as Quebec. However, the map extends quite a bit westward than would be expected, showing the Ohio River extending into present-day Kentucky. Interestingly, the map is among the earliest maps to identify petroleum in Pennsylvania, close to the location where oil was first discovered in Titusville in the mid-19th century.

      New London, 1772. Original suede calf, hinges broken. Folio. Library ink stamp on titlepage; chipping at edges, remnants of contemporary ownership inscription at head of title. Text lightly foxed, contemporary annotations and underlining throughout. Overall good. In a black cloth clamshell box. The Brinley copy, from his famous sale in 1880, of an important volume of early Connecticut laws, printed by one of the premier colonial American printers, Timothy Green. This is the reprint of 1768, after the first edition of 1750, followed by session laws for several years. The first volume of laws for the Connecticut colony was printed in Cambridge in 1673, followed by volumes of acts and laws in 1702 (Boston), 1709, 1715, and 1729 (all New London). The present collection of laws was authorized by the colonial legislature, but was not completed until 1753. This reprint of 1768 bears the original date of imprint on the titlepage, but differs entirely from the 1750-53 original by including a table of ten pages preceding the text. The table in the present copy has been annotated to reflect the session laws which are bound in after the initial body of the text (these are continuously paginated).

        Doorway to Vatican Loggia

      Rome, 1772. Copper engraving by Ottaviani after drawings by Savorelli and Camporesi, printed in light brown coloured ink with contemporary hand-colouring. Good condition. Three repaired tears to the left blank margin. Sight size: 31 1/8 x 18 1/4 inches. A highly decorative print from the famous "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano" series, with contemporary colouring of the highest quality from the golden age of the hand-coloured print. A very fine image from the first part of a work titled "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano" depicting the decorative work executed by Raphael and his assistants between 1518-1519 in the Vatican. This remarkable print, one of the first to be published of the decoration of the Logge on the main storey of the Vatican apartments, was probably planned as early as 1760, but was not executed until between 1772 and 1776. The project as a whole was carried out by the painter Gaetano Savorelli, the draughtsman Ludovico Teseo, the architect Pietro Camporesi, and the engravers Giovanni Ottaviani and Giovanni Volpato. The plate is remarkable not only as the first important visual record of Raphael's work, but also for the quality of the hand-colouring - the work on this image is, in our opinion, some of the greatest to be produced in Europe during the whole of the eighteenth century: the golden age of the hand-coloured print. The whole series was of importance not just for the size and magnificent colouring of the prints, but also because of the influence they had on contemporary taste. The decision was made to "borrow" elements from Raphael's Vatican tapestries and insert them where the original frescoes were in too poor a state to be legible. The finished plates therefore represented an amalgam of design elements presented with a crisp freshness of colour that held enormous appeal and stimulated the taste for the "grotesque" in the neo-classical period. Cf. Brunet IV, 1110; cf. Berlin Kat. 4068; cf. Lambert Pattern and Design (V. & A.: 1983), p. 26; "Raphael Invenit: Stampe da Rafaello" (1985) Ottaviano 17; Raphael: Reproduktions-graphik aus vier Jahrhunderten (Coburg: 1984), p. 104.

        The frugal housewife: Or, complete woman cook.

      Fourth American edition (following the London and Boston first editions of 1772) of this landmark work of early British cookery. Not much is known about Carter herself, but her emphasis on a variety of tasty, accessible gravies and sauces has stood the test of time. Although in its initial U.S. appearances, the Frugal Housewife was strictly oriented towards British cuisine and ingredients, it was later adapted and expanded for American housewives, and portions of the original publication directly formed the basis for the first American-authored cookbook: Amelia Simmons's American Cookery. The work includes chapters on pickling and preserving and on homemade wines, and is illustrated with two engraved plates that depict trussing techniques for cooking fowls and hares. Provenance: Flourishing old signatures of "J. Lowry" to pastedown and title-page.

        NACHRICHTEN VON DER AMERIKANISCHEN HALBINSEL CALIFORNIEN: MIT EINEM ZWEYFACHEN ANHANG FALSCHER NACHRICHTEN

      Mannheim, 1772. Small octavo. Modern half vellum and marbled boards, spine gilt. A bit of light age toning and an occasional light fox mark. Three small purple ink spots in lower portion of map. Near fine. First printing of this rare and important account of Lower California by the German Jesuit, Jacob Baegert. Baegert lived in Baja California for a period of seventeen years (1751-68) and spent most of his time at the Mission of San Luis Gonzaga, leaving after the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1767. He provides some important details on the culture of the Indians of Baja California, including the Pericues, Guiacuras, and Cochiemes. Part one is an overview of California, its climate and products; part two describes the inhabitants; and the third part contains an account of the introduction of Christianity to California. Wagner states that the German Jesuits were especially dissatisfied toward the end of the Jesuit regime in California, and Baegert's bitterness is evident in his book: "...it was a land full of ferocious beasts and even more ferocious Indians, the soil was poor, the water undrinkable and there was no fuel to be had." The fine and important map was made by fellow Jesuit Ferdinand Consak, and is described by Streeter as "most helpful in giving the location of the many Jesuit missions in Lower California. It also shows the route along the west coast of Mexico followed by Baegert in going to California in 1751 and his route out in 1768, after the expulsion of the Jesuits." The top right corner of the territory (present-day Arizona) is labeled, rather ominously, "Los Apaches Barbari." The excellent plates, which were apparently not issued with all copies, depict male and female California Indians. A prime early account of Baja California, with an important map and plates of the region.
