        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

      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. A fine copy .//Nissen ZBI, 4410a; Lisney 186.

      - 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.

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..

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.

        Observations concerning the Distinction of Ranks in Society. Under the following heads: I. Of the Rank and Condition of Women in different Ages. II. Of the Jurisdiction and Authority of a Father over his Children. III. Of the Author of a Chief over the members of a Tribe or Village. IV. Of the Power of a Sovereign over an extensive Society. Of the Authority of a Master over his Servants. The Second Edition, greatly enlarged.

      London: Printed for J. Murray. 1773 - 8vo, 211 x 127 mms., pp. [iv], xxii, 312, including half-title, contemporary calf; binding dried, piece of leather missing from lower front corner, joints very slightly cracked. John Millar (1735 - 1801), Professor of Civil Law at the University of Glasgow, is a good example of an author whose reputation flourished during his lifetime, and who thereafter virtually disappeared from the map of intellectual history. Observations concerning the Distinction of Ranks in Society was first published in an attractive quarto by John Murray in London in 1771; a Dublin edition was published in the same year by Thomas Ewing with Murray's consent and collaboration. A second edition, "greatly enlarged," followed in 1773, and for the third edition, "corrected and enlarged" of 1779, Millar revised the title to The Origin of the Distinction of Ranks: Or, An Enquiry into the Circumstances which Give Rise of Influence and Authority in the Different Members of Society. Commenting on the last section, the reviewer for The Monthly Review said, "The performance, indeed, deserves to be read in the Author's own words. The manner in which it is written is agreeable; and the style is in general correct, without stiffness or affectation. From the short analysis of it which we have given, the learned Reader will perceive that this is one of those works which only could be produced in an age superior to prejudices, and guided by the spirit of a free and liberal philosophy." Nothing like self-congratulation to warm the cockles of a reviewer's heart. W. Zachs, The First John Murray (1998) 70. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
