        A Journal of a Voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty’s Ship, The Endeavour. Faithfully transcribed from the papers of the late Sydney Parkinson, draughtsman to Joseph Banks on his late expedition, with Dr. Solander, round the World.

      - London, printed for Stanfield Parkinson, 1773.Large 4to. Contemporary polished calf, skilfully rebacked, spine gilt with red morocco title label. With engraved frontispiece portrait by J. Newton, engraved map and 26 engraved plates. XXIII,212 pp. + errata leaf. First edition of the principal alternative account of Cook’s first voyage. - 'This is an account of the first expedition under the command of Captain Cook, 1768-1771. Parkinson was engaged as natural history draughtsman by Sir Joseph Banks, to accompany him and Captain Cook in the Endeavour to the South Seas. Parkinson made numerous drawings of botanical and other subjects, including landscapes and portraits of native chiefs. After exploring Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef, the expedition reached Batavia. On leaving for the Cape of Good Hope, Parkinson succumbed to fever and dysentery and was burried at sea' (Hill p.462). Parkinson's manuscripts and drawings became a matter of dispute. Banks considered that they were his, while Parkinson' brother Stanfield claimed them under the provisions of his brother's will. When Hawkesworth learned of the impending publication of this work, he obtained an injunction to prevent it appearing until some time after the official account. 'Although physically the most impressive of the unofficial narratives the work's merit lies in its sidelights on incidents during the voyage' (NZNB). The book includes important vocabularies of the languages of taheite, New Zealand, New Holland, Savoo, Batavia (Low Malay), the coast of Malabar, Sumatra, Ceram, Madagascar, and of the negroes on the river Gambia in Africa. This is the first work to identify the kangaroo by name, and Parkinson is the first professional artist to set foot on Australian soil. - (Some offsetting of the plates). - With armorial bookplate of Waldham Wyndham. - A very attractive large paper copy.Sabin 58787; Hill 1308; NZNB 4466; Du Rietz, Kroepelien, 944; Beddie 712; Kroepelien 944; O'Reilly & Reitman 371 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Set of Cook’s Three Voyages.

      London, 1773-1784. 6/25/16. b/w plates, charts, many folding and double page. to. 8 vols. Various paginations. This set consists of the first printing of Cook’s first voyage, the second printing of Cook’s second voyage, and the second printing of Cook’s third voyage, with all plates and charts, along with the "Chart of the Streight of Magellan" in volume I. It is a clean set, with pages very slightly and evenly tanned, light offsetting from some plates and charts, and occasional foxing. Bound in 19th century half black morocco over marbled boards, with top edges gilt and outer and bottom edges marbled. Backstrips in six compartments with elaborate gilding and anchor decorations, and title and date labels. Light wear to spine ends, but a very good set with an agreeable antique look. Most interestingly, the title pages of the first three volumes bear what I believe to be GEORG FORSTER'S signature. Forster accompanied Cook on his second voyage, and wrote his own important account.

        Grand Quatuor Pour Deux Violons, Alto et Basso [Quartet No. 7 in E major for violin, viola, cello and guitar, M.S. 34] - 1832 Copyist Manuscript with Interesting Provenance

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph manuscript copy of the complete parts for Paganini's Quartet No. 7 in E major for violin, viola, cello and guitar, M.S. 34, here transcribed for standard String Quartet (violin, violin, viola, cello).  8.5" x 13". 54 pages including front cover and individual cover pages. Outer wrapper spine reinforced with early paper tape over original threaded binding, scattered staining, overall very good. <br>The title page and likely the manuscript entirely in the hand of Johann Christoph Bauriegel (1773 - 1851), German teacher and Biblical scholar who lived in Pulgar (near Leipsic), and who has signed lower right "Johs: Bauriegel / Pulgar 1832."  Cover and parts also inscribed and stamped by the composer and arranger, Carl Dietrich (1816 - 1875), and further by Friedrich Maximillian Bernhardt Fincke (1821 - 1906), noted German-born physician and homeopathic pioneer who was also well known as a musician. <br>In all, Paganini wrote fifteen quartets for violin, viola, guitar and cello, but only three for the archetypal string quartet. Composed between 1817 - 1818, the present work is dedicated to the Genovese Marquis Caterian Raggi Pallavicini, and is a notably more interesting composition than the earlier quartets. Only five of Paganini's works were published during his lifetime, and the rest of his oeuvre was published posthumously, including the present Quartet No. 7 in E Major, which was the first of the quartets to have been published in its original version after the composer's death.  Notably, the Leipzig firm Kistner published a transcription of the work for String Quartet ca. 1830 (plate number 839), this being the likely model from which the present manuscript was copied.

        An Account of the Voyages undertaken by the order of His Present Majesty for making Discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour

      London: W. Strahan and T. Cadell,, 1773-84. [Together with:] A Voyage towards the South Pole, and Round the World. Performed in His Majesty's Ships the Resolution and Adventure, in the years 1772, 1773, 1774 and 1775 [Together with:] A Voyage to the Pacific Ocean. Undertaken by the command of His Majesty, for making Discoveries in the Northern Hemisphere. 9 volumes: 8 quarto (285 x 215 mm) and one folio (567 x 395 mm). Uniformly bound in late 19th-century brown half morocco, spines gilt tooled with nautical motifs, brown pebble-grain cloth sides, speckled egdes. With all plates, maps and plans as called for. Bindings slightly rubbed at extremities, a few maps torn at folds (but without loss), one or two of the larger plates trimmed by the binder, scattered foxing in some volumes. A very good set, complete and uniformly bound. Second and best edition of the first voyage, first edition of the second and third voyages. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilisation and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century. Cook was a brilliant navigator and hydrographer, an excellent administrator and planner, and probably the first sea captain to realise the importance of preserving the health and well-being of his crew. He did everything possible to maintain their physical fitness and the cleanliness of both men and ships. He conquered the hitherto prevalent scurvy by cutting down the consumption of salt meat and by always having fresh vegetables and fruit on board" (PMM). The National Maritime Museum catalogue points out that the third voyage "was so eagerly awaited by the public that it was sold out on the third day after publication, and although the published price was £4 14s. 6d, as much as 10 guineas was offered by would-be purchasers".

        Essays concerning iron and steel:

      12mo., (2) 223 (1)pp., wanting a half-title, short tear to inner margin of title (no loss), inner margin (gutter) of following leaf stained, contemporary sheep, stamped in blind, some wear to joints else a sound copy. A valuable contemporary contribution to the rather fraught, and certainly competitive, early development of modern steel manufacture in England. Although Benjamin Huntsman (1704-1776) of Sheffield has been usually credited with the invention of crucible steel, or 'cast steel' as it was known at the time, the little known Henry Horne, a London-based cutler seems also to have played a part in developing new methods of steel manufacture at about the same time. Surprisingly, Horne mentions in his Essays neither Huntsman nor Samuel Walker, another contemporary experimenter in crucible steel making. In his book, Horne claims originality in his own process and seems to have perfected an efficient and commercial steel razor manufacturing business in London, the steel itself being produced with a highly polished surface. The steel used, Horne claimed, was "vastly superior" to that produced by his rival, John Waller, and which Horne was able to supply to the London cutlers "at a very moderate price". Waller eventually took the process to Sheffield and was able to undercut Horne's prices, resulting, inevitably, in substantial loss of business to the London manufacturer. Horne, while now hardly a footnote to industrial history, was certainly an early cast steel maker, although there is nothing in his account to suggest a date earlier than 1765, by which time others in Sheffield were also practising the art.

Heinroth weigert sich, einen Ring, den er schon einmal für 200 Taler ins Pfandhaus gegeben hatte, für 150 Taler zu verkaufen, sieht aber andererseits keine Möglichkeit, seine Schulden bei dem Adressaten zu bezahlen: ".

        Bertuchs Bilderbuch für Kinder. 12 Bände.

      - Friedrich Justin Bertuch, »der Kaufmann der Goethezeit« wie ihn sein Biograf von Heinemann nannte, gehört zu den interessantesten und Vielseitigsten Persönlichkeiten der Kulturgeschichte seiner Zeit. Nach dem Studium der Theologie und Jura lebte er seit 1773 in Weimar und avancierte hier zum »shooting star« der Gesellschaft. Bertuch wurde kaufmännischer Mitarbeiter an der von Wieland herausgegebenen Zeitschrift »Teutscher Merkur«. Diese Verbindung sollte sich auswirken, als Karl August, mit 18 Jahren die Regierung antrat. Auf Empfehlung des Prinzenerziehers Wielands berief er den 28jährigen Bertuch zu seinem Geheimsekretär und Schatullenverwalter, mit einem Jahresgehalt von 300 Talern. 1775 holte der junge Herzog den bereits berühmten Dichter Johann Wolfgang von Goethe nach Weimar. Die jungen Leute verstehen sich gut. Goethe bietet Bertuch das brüderliche Du an, welches Ihm der Dichterfürst später wieder entzieht. Zusammen mit Schiller wird er in den Xenien Hohn und Spott über ihn ausgießen. Bertuch wird dessen ungeachtet die erste Goethe-Ausgabe bei Goeschen mit finanzieren und der Geheime Rat wird sich an der Erstellung der Grabrede an den 1822 verstorbenen Unternehmer beteiligen. 1776 wird Bertuch Mitglied der Weimarer Freimaurerloge »Amalia« und schon bald zeigt er seine unternehmerischen Fähigkeiten. Die Bekanntschaft mit dem Maler Georg Melchior Kraus brachte ihn auf die Idee, eine Zeichenschule zu gründen. Diese Schule sollte von eminenter Bedeutung für das hier angezeigte »Bilderbuch« werden, da sie Bertuch die nötigen künstlerischen Kräfte für die über tausend kolorierten Kupfer bot. 1780 gründet er eine Fabrik für künstliche Blumen, um die »leider unbeschäftigten Mädchen der mittleren Classen heilsamer Arbeit zuzuführen«. Unter diesen Mädchen war auch eine Christiane Vulpius, spätere Frau von Goethe. Eine wichtige Ergänzung seiner Blumen- und Galanteriewarenfabrik bildet das 1786 gegründete »Journal der Moden«, mit dem Bertuch ausländische Modeströmungen zu Hause bekanntmachen und zugleich für seine Produkte Reklame machen konnte. Sein größtes Projekt wurde aber das »Industrie-Comptoir«. In einer Denkschrift beschreibt er es als »ein öffentliches kaufmännisches Commissions-Comptoir, in welchem jeder einheimische Künstler, Fabrikant und Handwerker die Muster seiner Fabrikate aufstellen, sie durch dasselbe außer Landes vertreiben . und von demselben richtige Zahlung und Sicherheit für seine Lieferung haben kann«. Bertuchs Verlag gehörte mit über 2000 publizierten Bücher und Zeitschriften zu einem der größten Unternehmen in Deutschland, Zeitweise beschäftigte er über 450 Mitarbeiter mit einer jährlichen Gehaltssumme von 27.000 Talern und war damit größter Arbeitgeber in Weimar. Sein eigenes Gehalt belief sich auf 3000 Taler und entsprach dem des Ministers Goethe.1790 begann Bertuch mit seinem größten Buchprojekt, dem »Bilderbuch für Kinder«. Er schreibt: »Ein Bilderbuch ist für eine Kinderstube ein ebenso wesentliches und noch unentbehrlichres Meuble als die Wiege, die Puppe, oder das Steckenpferd«. Die Auflage betrug 3.000 Exemplare. Das Werk erschien in einzelnen Lieferungen, um den Bezug auch für einen kleineren Geldbeutel möglich zu machen. Dennoch belief sich schließlich der Preis der bis 1830 erschienenen 237 Lieferungen mit ihren 1185 kolorierten Kupfern, einschließlich des 24-bändigen Begleitwerks Funkes mit seinen über 15.000 Seiten, auf rund 125 Taler. Ein Maurer verdiente damals (bei 304 Arbeitstagen) 72 Taler. Heute kostet das Werk im Antiquariatsbuchhandel etwa 15.000.- Euro. Im Vorwort entwickelt Bertuch sein bilddidaktisches Programm: Ein Bilderbuch müsse »schön und richtig gezeichnete und keine schlecht gestochene Kupfer haben, weil nichts wichtiger ist, als das Auge des Kindes, gleich vom Anfange an, nur an wahre Darstellung der Gegenstände . zu gewöhnen«. Weiter: »Es muß nicht zu viele und zu sehr verschiedene Gegenstände auf einer Tafel zusammendrängen; sonst verwirrt es die Imagination des Kindes und

Coloured with great exactness from the subjects themselves. With a Natural History of the Moths and Butterflies, describing the method of managing, preserving, and feeding them...

      London, Benjamin White, 1773. 4to (307 x 265mm). pp. (2), 8, (22), 63, (1), (4), with 120 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary green half morocco, spine in 6 compartments with gilt ornamented butterflies, lines and lettering. Second edition. The first edition was published 1747-49, by the same publisher. One of the most beautifully illustrated works on English butterflies and moths, most of the plants, fruits, and flowers of the fine plates are after drawings by George Ehret and Jacob van Huysum. In the preface of the present work Henry Baker, who compiled the text for Wilkes, writes: "As to the Plants, Flowers and Fruits, he [Wilkes] declares himself under the highest obligation to a most curious Naturalist, and worthy member of the Royal Society of London, whose costly and valuable Collection is known to the learned world, and esteemed as it derserves. This Gentleman has generously permitted him to make use of many excellent Paintings of these subjects, which were taken from Nature by those two celebrated Artists Mr. George Dennis [sic] Ehret, and Mr. Jacobus van Heysum [sic], and executed with the utmost Judgment and Command of Pencil, so that he could hardly doubt but that the true Copies of them would give great Pleasure to the Lovers of Botany, whom he has endeavoured to entertain with all the Variety he could introduce". The 'most curious Naturalist' is Joseph Banks who had purchased some 65 finished drawings by Ehret. "Benjamin Wilkes was one of the most significant of the group of eighteenth-century 'aurelians' which established British entomology in the direction it was to follow for well over a century" (Wilkinson, Benjamin Wilkes, the British Aurelian p. 4). It has only recently been rediscovered that the plates of Wilkes' work were to a large extent after drawings by the most renowned botanical painters of the 18th century, George Ehret 'Flower painter extraordinary' and Jacob van Huysum.

        De natuurlyke historie der versteeningen, of uitvoerige afbeelding en beschryving van de versteende zaaken, die tot heden op den aardbodem zyn ontdekt: . Uit het hoog- in 't nederduitsch vertaald door M. Houttuyn, met verscheide aanmerkingen.

      - Amsterdam, J.C. Sepp, 1773. 3 volumes (bound in 4). Folio (445 x 275mm). pp. (4), xiv, 64; (4), 1-184; (2), 185-484; (4), 236, with 1 double-page handcoloured engraved plate 'Marmer-Groeve na by Solnhofen', some engraved head- & woodcut tail-pieces and 272 hand-coloured or colour-printed engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spines in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label, marbled sides (very minor restoration to spines). A fine copy of 'one of the best illustrated and most complete accounts on fossils.' (Landwehr 95). "The outstanding work of this period is undoubtedly that of Knorr and Walch in four volumes . The first volume was written by the Nürnberg collector and artist, Georg Wolfgang Knorr (born 1705, died 1761), and the other three volumes were prepared after the death of Knorr by Professor Walch of Jena ." (Zittel pp. 21-22). The rare Dutch edition of the German original 'Naturgeschichte der Versteinerungen' (Nuremberg 1768-1773) with the same beautiful plates. Volume II almost entirely concerns fossil shells. "It is hardly possible to exaggerate the beauty and fidelity of the representations of the fossils in his plates. No such illustrations had ever before appeared, and they have hardly been surpassed since. By delicate lines on the copper plates the most minute intricacies of structure are reproduced, and by thin washes of colour the tints of the original specimens are represented. His renderings of dentritic markings, landscape-marble, fossil plants, crustacea, crinoids, fishes and other fossils are admirable examples of the union of artistic workmanship with scientific accuracy ." (Geikie, Founders of Geology, pp. 101-102). 'The extraordinary quality of the plates, representing the eighteenth-century continuation of the tradition of Dürer, led to an expansion of the work by Walch, as well as to French and Dutch editions. the detail and accuracy of Knorr's engravings not only made possible zoological classification but firmly established the distinction between fossils of organic and sports of nature' (DSB).The books portrays and describes a.o fossils in the cabinets of famous collectors such as Walch at Jena, Adam Hildebrand at Naumberg, Jac. Theod. Klein, Johann Hermannus at Regensburg, S.R. Genzmer at Stargard, as well as the large collection of Casimir Schmidel.Nissen ZBI, 2233; Ward & Carozzi 1285; Landwehr 95.

        Original etching and drypoint by James Bretherton (fl. 1770-1781) depicting a trio of gentleman in caricature playing the oboe, natural horn and cello

      1773. Le Blanc: Manuel de l'Amateur d'Estampes (Paris, 1854-90) 2. The "Concert Spirituel," a concert series founded in Paris in 1725, "was at the centre of Paris';s non-operatic musical life until the founding of the Concert des Amateurs (1769). The last director, Bertheaume, abandoned the enterprise after the 13 May 1790 performance. Concerts spirituels, not connected to the original series but consisting of programmes on the Parisian model, or simply of sacred music, had been given in Vienna and other European centres beginning in the late 18th century; in Paris, theatre orchestras and concert societies began giving them during the French Revolution. They continued during periods of royalism and eventually became part of the tradition of the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire." Eric Bloom and Beverly Wilcox in Grove Music Online.. Sheet size ca. 262 x 206 mm., plate size ca. 257 x 200 mm. Signed in the plate. A fine, bright impression on laid paper with narrow margins. Lightly browned; a few small spots of light foxing; small hole to blank lower left corner; hinged at upper margin of verso.

      Roma, Zempelliano, 1773. Folio (380 x 255mm). pp. xl, 260, with 1 fine engraved allegorical frontispiece, 1 engraved title vignette showing a cabinet and 2 scientists with a magnifying glass, 10 engraved vignettes in the text and 51 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented and lettered spine in 5 compartments, marbled sides. "Very scarce. Revised and edited by Giuseppe-Antonio Battarra. Kircher, the great German Jesuit scholar, had formed during his life a magnificent collection of antiquities and natural history specimens. When he died in 1680, the collection was bequeathed to the Collegio Romano. Although Buonanni published a one volume account of the collection in 1709, this much enlarged work is the definitive edition. The volumes cover mainly zoology, paleontology, and conchology, and are superbly illustrated. It is one of the most important accounts of a seventeenth century scientific cabinet. Volume 1 divides the text into classes of (1) quadrupeds, (2) reptiles and insects, (3) fossils, minerals and stones, (4) fish and sea creatures, and (5) apparatus. Pages 94-152 describe the mineralogical specimens, including gold, silver, copper, iron, lead, tin, mercury, antimony, magnets, marcasite, salt, sulfur, amber, dendrites, fossils, the Philosopher's stone, etc. Some of these are illustrated on plates XXXV-XXXVI" (C. Schuh, Bibliography of Mineralogy). Volume 2, not present here, deals almost exclusively with shell and bivalve descriptions. A few leaves with some worming at the lower margin. A very fine copy.//B.M.(N.H.), 287; Nissen ZBI, 2199.
