GAUTIER d'AGOTY, Arnaud Eloi
Nancy, Jean-Baptiste-Hyacinthe LeClerc, 1773. Imperial-folio (640x480 mm.), 2 leaves, 25 pages and 15 colour mezzotint plates. Some marginal spotting and thumbing, waterstaining to lower inner blank margin, overall a very good copy bound in contemporary green vellum, somewhat rubbed and spotted, rebacked.First edition. It had been intended that the complete work would consists of five parts but only part one seems to have been published (Welcome catalogue). Gautier d'Agoty (c.1715 - 1785) was the assistant and successor to the master painter, engraver and pioneer of colour printing Jacques Christophe le Blon (1670 - 1741). ?The three-color process had been invented by Jean Christophe Leblon a native of Frankfurt-am-Main, about 1720. He made his first attempts at colorprinting in Holland, and worked later in London and Paris. He used separate blocks inked with the pigment colors yellow, blue and red, and obtained some gradation through heavy mezzotinting or scraping and through varying the amount of color-inking. But his plates were not very successful. It was Gautier d'Agoty who made Le Blond's system work by adding a fourth plate, a black one which usually carried the design and permitted shadows and contrasts.' (Hunt catalogue).After the death of Le Blon, Gautier d'Agoty's refinement of Le Blon's technique aroused controversy until in 1745 he was awarded the exclusive use of his own technique. Although Gautier d'Agoty's anatomical works have been criticised for their lack of anatomical verisimilitude - he was after all an artist - there can be no doubt that his production … [Click Below for Full Description]

Das Leinen an den Ecken und Kanten teils eingerissen u. von der Borte gelöst. Cracquelé, teils mit Farbausbrüchen. Ende des 17. Jhds. Gründeten die Künstler von Cusco (Peru) die wohl wichtigste Malschule Südamerikas, die Cuscoschule. Die katholische Religion bildete den Darstellungsgegenstand, wobei die Narration der Bibelszenen zentral ist. Auf kolonial bedingten spanischen Vorbildern basierend, wurden andine Vorstellungen in den Werken realisiert. Die Arbeiten entstanden in Werkstätten, weshalb die Urheber meist anonym blieben. Es bestand eine Vorliebe zum barocken Stil, der sich insbesondere in der ausführlichen Schilderung von Brokatstoffen zeigt. Auf die Figur des Kaisers wird der Darstellungstypus der trapezförmigen Madonna aus der Cuscoschule angewendet. Speziell die Virgen del Rosario de Pomata zeigt die Madonna bekrönt und mit Rosenkranz.

Kidnapped from Gambia and brought to slavery in the American colonies, Phillis Wheatley rose to prominence as a poet. Purchased by the Wheatley family at the age of 7, she quickly stood out for her apt and creative mind; "soon she was immersed in the Bible, astronomy, geography, history, British literature, and the Greek and Latin classics," being educated in a similar manner to the family's two children (Poetry Foundation). This classical humanistic education prepared Wheatley for authorship, and she began writing a collection of poetry and sought subscribers for their publication.

Containing the first appearance of Some Account of Phillis, A Learned Negro Girl (226)-- a defense of Phillis Wheatley's education and poetic skills -- as well as a very early appearance of Wheatley's own poem On Recollection (page 456). The present is the only copy of The Gentleman's Magazine on the market to contain both pieces. Kidnapped from Gambia and brought to slavery in the American colonies, Phillis Wheatley rose to prominence as a poet. Purchased by the Wheatley family at the age of 7, she quickly stood out for her apt and creative mind; "soon she was immersed in the Bible, astronomy, geography, history, British literature, and the Greek and Latin classics," being educated in a similar manner to the family's two children (Poetry Foundation). This classical humanistic education prepared Wheatley for authorship, and she began writing a collection of poetry and sought subscribers for their publication. "When the colonists were apparently unwilling to support literature by an African, she and the Wheatleys turned in frustr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Umlaufend mit Zierborte aus Baumwollfransen. Am Unterrand in gold mit Inschrift (etw. unleserlich) G.M.V Igr: 1773 Reno V. J8j4 AL GM(?) Mit Metallstange zur Aufhängung. Das Leinen an den Ecken und Kanten teils eingerissen u. von der Borte gelöst. Cracquelé, teils mit Farbausbrüchen. Ende des 17. Jhds. Gründeten die Künstler von Cusco (Peru) die wohl wichtigste Malschule Südamerikas, die Cuscoschule. Die katholische Religion bildete den Darstellungsgegenstand, wobei die Narration der Bibelszenen zentral ist. Auf kolonial bedingten spanischen Vorbildern basierend, wurden andine Vorstellungen in den Werken realisiert. Die Arbeiten entstanden in Werkstätten, weshalb die Urheber meist anonym blieben. Es bestand eine Vorliebe zum barocken Stil, der sich insbesondere in der ausführlichen Schilderung von Brokatstoffen zeigt. Auf die Figur des Kaisers wird der Darstellungstypus der trapezförmigen Madonna aus der Cuscoschule angewendet. Speziell die Virgen del Rosario de Pomata zeigt die Madonna bekrönt und mit Rosenkranz. Ursprünglich hat jedoch das von ihr getragene Jesuskind den Reichsapfel in der Hand und weist den Segnungsgestus aus. Cusco school (Escuela cuzqueña).

Dorat praised Marillier's ability to depict the infinitely small, which made him an ideal choice to illustrate these poems containing references to snails, grasshoppers, bees, flies, and domestic scenes in city and country settings. Claude-Joseph Dorat published a first proof of 83 of his witty fables in 1772. This first edition had great success and was re-issued in the present enlarged edition, sumptuously illustrated by Clément-Pierre Marillier (1740-1808), the outstanding illustrator of the Louis XVI period. More than 25 engravers executed his drawings which show the motifs of the fables within an ornamental frame. Manche Exemplare haben ein zusätzliches Porträtkupfer. In französischer Sprache.

Captain James Cook
London, 1773. This engraving of a kangaroo on the coast of New Holland (now Australia) was done after a drawing by Sydney Parkinson. The kangaroo first appeared as a symbol of Australia in 1773 with the publication of accounts of Captain Cook's voyage to the Pacific. --- This fascinating, first edition folio engraving is from Captain James Cook & James King's "An Account of the Voyages Undertaken by the Order of His Present Majesty for Making Discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere". The work was published in London by Strahan and Cadell in 1773. It is the official account of Cook's first voyage. --- Cook's first voyage of three, taking place between 1768 and 1771, was a combined Royal Navy and Royal Society expedition to the South Pacific aboard the HMS Endeavour. Departing from the Plymouth Dockyard in August 1768, the expedition crossed the Atlantic and reached Tahiti in time to observe the transit of Venus before setting off into the largely uncharted ocean to the south. In 1769, the crew reach New Zealand, and spent six months charting the coast before resuming their journey westward. In 1770 the crew became the first Europeans to reach the east coast of Australia before rounding the Cape of Good Hope in 1771 and returning to England the summer of that year. --- "The famous accounts of Captain Cook's three voyages form the basis for any collection of Pacific books. In three great voyages Cook did more to clarify the geographical knowledge of the southern hemisphere than all his predecessors had done together. He was really the first scientific navigator and his voyages … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leonard, who was canonised in 1867, was extremely active in promoting the spread of the devotion of the Via Crucis, erecting stations in no fewer than 572 locations throughout Italy while on his different missions, including, most famously, in the Colosseum at Rome in 1750, for the Roman Jubilee.The plates comprise a frontispiece portrait of Leonardo ('grande propagatore della Via Crucis'), images of the fourteen stations of the cross, and a depiction of Mater Dolorosa, alongside contemplative text, prayers, songs and hymns. The second part, entitled 'Istruzioni utili, e necessarie per il santo esercizio della Via Crucis' (from p. 95), covers the origin of the Via Crucis, its growing popularity, the establishment of the station in the Colosseum, indulgences relating to various other stations, and ends with an exhortation to the faithful to practice devotion of the Stations of the Cross.Only the National Library of Scotland copy on COPAC.
