Vardill, John]
James Rivington, [New York, 1773. Broadside, printed in two columns beneath caption title. 10-1/2" x 16-3/4". Signed 'Poplicola' at the end in type. Light wear [abrasion of two letters, mild dusting, old folds, short fold split, top blank edge with some chipping]. Else Very Good. This rare broadside begins, "Every good citizen will be inclined from duty as well as interest, to love his country, and to be zealous in advancing its welfare." Sympathetic to England and rejecting a boycott of English goods, it was issued as a supplement to Rivington's New York Gazetteer. The author scoffs at the alleged tyranny of England: "But it is said, that your liberties are in danger, that if you touch a grain of the accursed English teas you are undone." The broadside intends to "show the fallacy of such assertions." He denounces "the crude decrees of a small cabal, who are actuated by self interest. Whoever ventures to contradict them, or even express a doubt of their validity or propriety, must be exposed to violence, and, unheard, without a tryal, must be condemned to infamy and disgrace." Poplicola "touched a nerve. If Poplicola was truly a great friend to his country, one anonymous writer demanded, he would sign his own name" [Allison, The Boston Tea Party 30-31 (2007)]. Poplicola was opposed by "Mechanic" and "A Student of Law," who supported early American steps toward independence. Poplicola responded in two other works, all with the same caption title. "The pseudonym Poplicola was used by John Vardill" [ESTC]. Born in New York City in 1749 and a graduate of Columbia [then known a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dana, James (Jonathan Edwards)
Printed for Thomas and Samuel Green, New Haven, 1773. First edition of American Protestant clergyman James Dana's second published response to Jonathan Edwards' Inquiry into the Modern Prevailing Notions of the Freedom of the Will, preceded by Dana's prior examination of the same subject published anonymously in 1770. Octavo, original three-quarter period calf over marbled boards, gilt titles to the spine, morocco spine labels, raised bands. A rare and desirable example illustrating the tensions that shaped the Evangelical Revival in eighteenth century America.       Widely regarded as "one of America's most important and original philosophical theologians," American revivalist preacher Jonathan Edwards' theological work was firmly rooted in Reformed theology. In his major work, The Freedom of the Will, Edwards argued that although humanity possesses free will, they are inherently depraved and bound to sin, and therefore require divine guidance and grace. Regarded as inclining to Arminianism, fellow Protestant clergyman James Dana first came into conflict with Edwards when he was ordained and and made pastor of Congregational Church in Wallingford, Connecticut. Dana published his first Examination of Edwards' The Freedom of the Will anonymously, in his continued Examination, which revealed him as the author of both works, Dana argued against Edwards' "denial of moral, rational liberty; his distinction of natural and moral necessity, [and] attributing the origin of evil to the want or withdraw of divine assistance."

Mohammed
Halle: Gebauer Wittwe und Joh. Jac. Gebauer. Erstausgabe des Koran auf Deutsch. (F.E.Boysen 1773). Versand mit DHL Paket bis 2 kg. In öffentlichen Sammlungen, Bibliotheken etc ist stets nur die zweite Auflage der Koranübersetzung Boysens von 1775 nachweisbar. Das Buch ist in einen schmucklosen Pappband gebunden und enthält 680 Seiten. Die Übersetzung gilt als die zweite deutschsprachige Ausgabe des Koran überhaupt, die direkt aus dem Arabischen übersetzt wurde. Ein Jahr zuvor erschien 1772 die Übersetzung von D. F. Megerlin. Die Übersetzung Megerlins hatte jedoch zum Ziel, den Koran als Lügen- und Fabelbuch zu entlarven. Goethe bezeichnete sie als eine "elende Produktion". Ganz anders sieht es bei der vorliegenden Übersetzung des Quedlinburger Hofpredigers Friedrich Eberhard Boysens aus. Er verfügte über solide Kenntnisse des Arabischen und seine Gelehrsamkeit in der orientalischen Literatur war weit bekannt. Er versuchte als erster, den Text vorbehaltlos und ohne Interpretation dem Leser nahezubringen. Der volle Titel des Werkes lautet: Muhammad ibn Ábd Allah: Der Koran oder das Gesetz für die Muselmänner, durch Mohammed den Sohn Abdall. Nebst einigen feyerlichen koranischen Gebeten, unmittelbar aus dem Arabischen übersetzt, mit Anmerkungen und einem Register versehen, und auf Verlangen herausgegeben von Friedrich Eberhard Boysen.

BACH, Johann Christian 1735-1782
Welcker, London, 1773. Oblong folio. Full gray paper boards with dark red leather title label gilt to spine. 1f. (recto title within decorative border by Mango, verso blank), 37 pp. Engraved. Provenance From the collection of French pianist and conductor Alfred Cortot (1877-1962), with his distinctive bookplate and autograph annotations in pencil to front pastedown and small green monogrammatic handstamp to title; small bookseller's label "Harold Reeves" to front pastedown. Binding slightly worn and bumped; minor cracking to joints and hinges.; endpapers slightly stained. Light uniform browning throughout; occasional stains and soiling. First Edition. Terry p. 322; Warburton 2, pp. 339-340. BUC p. 76. Frankel: Decorative Music Title Pages, no. 171. RISM B/BB 333. Johann Christian (the "London") Bach had a major impact on music in England, bringing a number of stylistic influences with him and becoming a leading advocate for the piano. His Sonatas Op. 5 (1766) were the first to be published in London with "piano" printed on the title as a performance option, and his piano recital in 1768 is often cited as the first in the city. It did not take long for J.C. to become a leading and sought-after musician and composer, both in England and on the continent, and he had a special influence on the young Mozart. J.C. Bach's Sonatas Op. 10, were composed for keyboard with accompaniment, a distinct genre that was very popular in the second half of the 18th century. "Virtually all composers interested in writing for the keyboard wrote for this kind of combination. The reasons for its p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Samuel Johnson]
ont> W. Strahan; T. Cadell: London, 1773. Ont> W. Strahan; T. Cadell: London Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. An exceptional, crisp and clean copy of the very sought after first edition, first issue of Samuel Johnson's classic travelogue recounting his journey to Scotland with his biographer James Boswell in 1773. Illustrated with extra illustrations bound in. The first edition, first issue of this work. With the issue points for the first issue as follows. Leaves D8 and U4 are cancels, with a twelve line errata to the rear. However, page 296 is correctly numbered, and is not numbered 226 as is sometimes seen with the first issue. This work is an octavo, with the signatures running from B-Z8, Aa-Bb8. ESTC citation number T84319. 'A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland' is a travel work by Samuel Johnson. The work documents his eighty-three journey travelling through Scotland, mostly the islands of the Hebrides. The journey was undertaken in the later summer and autumn of 1773. During the journey, Johnson was accompanied by his younger friend and his biographer James Boswell. Boswell published his work 'A Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides' recounting this same trip, published in 1785. The two men toured Scotland by carriage, horseback, and boat, staying at the houses of the local gentry along the way. In this time, the Hebrides were romantically empty of people, and was fairly untouched by modern life: commerce and roads. Money also had not yet become custom in the islands. All of these factors meant that the Hebrides islands were more akin to the eighth cent … [Click Below for Full Description]

BAUME, Antoine
Paris: P. Franç. Didot le jeune, 1773. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Antoine Baumé was an 18th-century French chemist who is only remembered by two of his works - 'Elements of Pharmacy' and 'Experimental Chemistry'. In the latter, Baume covers the processes and improvements to various science experiments that include hydrometer studies, silk bleaching and dyes, purification of water and other elements, and experiments with air and fire. This fine three-volume set is illustrated with engravings detailing the experiments as well as necessary tools and instruments.\ According to Duveen, this work is "One of the very latest and at the same time the best textbooks based on the phlogiston theory by one of the most distinguished eighteenth century French chemists.".

Giovan Battista PIRANESI (Mogliano Veneto 1720 - Roma 1778)
Acquaforte e bulino, 1773, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Primo stato di tre. Della serie le Vedute di Roma. L'opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente da Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, dal 1745 circa, fino alla data della sua morte. All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi, editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Dopo la morte dell'autore, le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e poi a Parigi. Le lastre furono quindi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Esemplare privo della consueta piega centrale, con i fori di legaccio all'estremità del margine sinistro, di primissima qualità. Etching and engraving, signed at lower left. First state of three. From the Vedute di Roma. The work consists of 135 plates produced individually by Piranesi for at least 30 years, from about 1745 until the date of his death. For the first time, were edited by Giovanni Bouchard in 1751 (34 plates), followed by Piranesi himself, publisher in Tomati Palace of Rome (writing appearing on many boards), until the final v … [Click Below for Full Description]

I giochi sono a ricordo dell'episodio della presa di Aquileia, in cui i Castellani presero la città scavalcando le mura con delle piramidi umane. Erano piramidi umane che potevano arrivare anche a otto piani, competizione nella quale le due fazioni in gara si misuravano in forza, equilibrio e agilità. Potevano avvenire a terra e allora su botti si formava un tavolato sul quale i "Saorna" (così veniva chiamata la zavorra delle navi) costituivano la base solida che doveva sopportare tutto il peso e poi si saliva a colonne sino all'ultimo piano, generalmente un ragazzo detto il "Cimiereto" che si esibiva in acrobazie tipo "tombolo o impalo". Le piramidi erano di vari gradi di difficoltà con intento figurativo o allegorico e venivano presentate e classificate con un proprio nome.

Ignazio BENEDETTI
1773. Terza stesura della pianta del Benedetti, ristampata da Venanzio Monaldini nel primo quarto del XIX secolo. La pianta di Ignazio Benedetti è una copia molto fedele della piccola Nolii/Piranesi edita nel 1748. La prima edizione, con legenda di 173 numeri contro i 170 dell'originale Nolli, viene stampata nel 1773. In alto a sinistra dedica al cardinale Boschi. La città viene raffigurata solamente all'interno delle mura aureliane eccezion fatta per le zone fuori Porta Pia, porta del Popolo e porta Angelica. Al di sotto della pianta campeggiano piazza San Pietro, la fontana di Trevi, Santa Maria Maggiore e Santa Croce in Gerusalemme secondo il modello indicato dal Nolli. L'opera venne ristampata, senza alcun aggiornamento, da Giuseppe Vasi nel 1780 e poi da Monaldini nel 1820 circa. La tiratura di Monaldini vede la legenda implementata - n. 174 Sagrestia di S. Pietro - e scompare la dedica al cardinale Boschi, sostituita da un nuovo titolo. Incisione in rame, con margini, leggeri restauri nel margnine bianco destro, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Rara edizione di Vincenzo Monaldini. Rare Monaldini's edition of Benedetti map of Rome (1773). Ignazio Benedetti's map is a very faithful copy of the little map of Nolii / Piranesi, published in 1748. The legend consists of 173 numbers against 170 of the original. At the top left, he dedicates to Cardinal Boschi. The Monaldini issue of the map show one more key number (174 Sagerstia di S. Pietro), the new title - Nuova Pianta Topografica della Città di Roma Cavata da quella del Nolli e Aumentata - and is without th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Containing the first appearance of Some Account of Phillis, A Learned Negro Girl -- a defense of Phillis Wheatley's education and poetic skills -- as well as a very early appearance of Wheatley's own poem On Recollection. 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 prominance 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 frustration to London for a publisher" and were able to secure funding from "a w … [Click Below for Full Description]

All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. " - THE FIRST STATE OF FOUR - Etching with engraving, 1773, signed on plate.

Giuseppe VASI (Corleone, 27 Agosto 1710 - Roma, 16 Aprile 1782)
Acquaforte e bulino, 1773. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, minimi difetti, per il resto in buone condizioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnator … [Click Below for Full Description]

1773. Up for sale is this rare two-volume set: A DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, in Which the Words are deduced from their Originals, and Illustrated in Their Different Significations by Examples from the Best Writers. To Which are Prefixed a History of the Language and An English Grammar. By Dr. Samuel Johnson. Published in London by W. Strahan for W. Strahan, J. & F. Rivington [and others] 1773. Fourth edition. Two volumes, large folio. This is the famous large folio fourth edition of Dr. Johnson's dictionary. It is the last edition that he revised personally before he died. It ranks second in importance only to the first edition of 1755. According to one scholar: "[S]ignificant numbers of new illustrative texts were incorporated, while many others were dropped and replaced. Johnson often flooded existing entries with new illustrations, sometimes accompanied by additional definitions or other material, thus altering the reading of the entry as a whole. Many of the new sources from which he borrowed were theological writers, and the cumulative effect of the new quotations and their accompanying definitions or notes on usage is to draw attention to a broader theological sense of the word in question. * * * However, the most important changes in the Dictionary involved the wholesale addition of thousands of new quotations affecting many entries,around which the existing entries and the wordlist itself were expanded. * * * Johnson revised no other work as extensively or after such a long period of time had elapsed - he was thirty-seven when he signed the original contract … [Click Below for Full Description]

I giochi sono a ricordo dell'episodio della presa di Aquileia, in cui i Castellani presero la città scavalcando le mura con delle piramidi umane. Erano piramidi umane che potevano arrivare anche a otto piani, competizione nella quale le due fazioni in gara si misuravano in forza, equilibrio e agilità. Potevano avvenire a terra e allora su botti si formava un tavolato sul quale i "Saorna" (così veniva chiamata la zavorra delle navi) costituivano la base solida che doveva sopportare tutto il peso e poi si saliva a colonne sino all’ultimo piano, generalmente un ragazzo detto il "Cimiereto" che si esibiva in acrobazie tipo "tombolo o impalo".

De L'Imprimerie Royale, Paris, 1773. (10 x 8 inches). [4], lxix, [1], 803, [1]; [4], 622, xl pp. 5 engraved folding maps, one engraved plate, 5 folding tables. Contemporary mottled calf, spine with raised bands and six compartments, titled in second compartment, ruled in gilt, red edges, contemporary marbled endpapers Provenance: Jose Jorge Ribeiro (bookplate) First edition charting a key moment in the longitude race when Fleurieu was, for the first time, able to test and calculate accurate locations using Berthoud's marine chronometer. Fleurieu, Lieutenant of the Royal Ships, sailed with Ferdinand Berthoud's marine clocks Nos. 6 and 8. Berthoud and Pierre Le Roy were battling to perfect the marine chronometer, at the same time John Harrison was developing his own instruments in England. Berthoud eventually won the lion's share of the rewards in France, having been judged to have the better design. No. 6 was one of the first timekeepers to be housed in the type of box that became the standard for all marine chronometers. (See Catherine Cardinal, "Ferdinand Berthoud and Pierre Le Roy: Judgement in the Twentieth Century of a Quarrel Dating from the Eighteenth Century in: The Quest for Longitude, ed. William J.H. Andrews, Cambridge, Mass., 1996, pp.282-292.) In 1768 Fleurieu was appointed to the command of the frigate Isis on an expedition to experiment with the new instrument, sailing from Aix in November of that year. He took observations at Martinique, Santo Domingo, Porto Rico, Havana, Jamaica, Colon, and New Orleans, and after touching at New York, Boston, and Newfoundlan … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUCTION CATALOGUE: [LEBRUN, Jean Baptiste Pierre, consigner])
1773. 57, 3 pp. Small 8vo (160 x 100 mm.), attractive antique marbled boards, label on spine. Paris: P. Remy, 1773. The scarce sale catalogue, interleaved throughout with prices and buyers' names, of a sale of paintings very probably supplied in large part by the fledgling dealer Jean Baptiste Pierre Lebrun. In the Institut national d'histoire de l'art copy, which belonged to Lebrun, he has written "Par moy" on the title-page. The present example of this catalogue contains invaluable notes on the successful bidders, such as Langlier, Comtesse du Barry, Paillet, Remy, Comte de Merle, etc. The very rare three-page supplement is present and annotated. This catalogue describes 133 lots of paintings, a majority of which are Dutch and Flemish. Lebrun made numerous buying trips to the Netherlands and he quickly became the foremost connoisseur of art from the region. This sale offered paintings by J. Brueghel the Elder, Rubens, van Poelenburgh, Jordaens, Rembrandt (7 lots), Teniers, A. & I. van Ostade, Dou, Metsu, Weenix, G. van den Eeckhout, Berghem, P. Potter, J. & S. Ruysdael, J. Steen, A. van de Velde, G. Netscher, Dujardin, J. Asselijn, J. Wijnants, Moucheron, Watteau, Restout, Wouwerman, Lairesse, etc. In good condition, minor dampstaining throughout. An uncommon catalogue with important provenance information. ❧ Lugt 2217.
