        Angeli che portano un libro

      1774 - Acquaforte, 1774-75 circa, firmata in lastra in basso a destra "Io Dominicus Filius delin. et sculp." ; a sinistra l’iscrizione 'Io. Bapta Tiepolo pinx, in Sacello B.M. de Monte Carmelo Venetijs". Stato unico. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, lieve traccia di inchiostro al centro, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'incisione deriva da una tela dipinta da Giovanni Battista tra gli anni 1740 e 1743 per il soffitto della Sala Capitolare della Scuola dei Carmini, a Venezia. La decorazione pittorica del soffitto comprende nove scomparti che hanno come filo conduttore l’esaltazione e la glorificazione dello Scapolare. Lo schema compositivo si rifà ai cicli decorativi di Paolo Veronese realizzati per Palazzo Ducale mentre l’iconografia si ispira all’iconologia di Cesare Ripa. La scena, dipinta in uno scomparto laterale alla scena centrale, raffigura degli Angeli che portano un libro con le regole della Scuola dei Carmini. Questo foglio è databile al 1774-75. Insieme ad altri tre fogli, che riproducono le scene dei comparti laterali del soffitto, non furono incluse nella prima edizione del "Catalogo" di G.B. Tiepolo, del 1774, dove sono solo preannunciate da uno spazio bianco con i numeri 1. e 2.,mentre furono inserite nella seconda edizione, del 1775. Non menzionata da De Vesme. Etching, 1774-75, lettered along bottom 'Io. Bapta Tiepolo pinx, in Sacello B.M. de Monte Carmelo Venetijs" and "Io Dominicus Filius delin. et sculp." After G.B. Tiepolo. Only state. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, light trace of ink in the middle, otherwise very good condition. This etching reproduces one of the nine ceiling canvanes paintend by G. B. Tiepolo for Sala del Capitolo of the Scuola Grande dei Carmini, in Venice, between 1739 and 1749. The scene depicts Angels bearing the book containing the rules of the confraternity. This sheet is dating from the 1774-75. Along with three other sheets, depicting the scenes of the side compartments of the ceiling, they were not included in the first edition of the "Catalogue" to G.B. Tiepolo, 1774, which are only announced by whitespace with numbers 1 and 2, whereas they were included in the second edition, 1775. Unrecorded by De Vesme. D. Succi, La Serenissima nello specchio di rame , p. 612 n. 168 Dimensioni 329 187mm [Attributes: First Edition]

His excursion to the Lake District in August 1773 was made with his brother, Richard. Their itinerary included Ullswater, Vale of St. John, Keswick, Skiddaw, Thirlmere, Grasmere, Windermere and Kendal. 'The book includes a generous amount of rich picturesque description, and lively accounts of unusual incidents. ..... He wrote with a verve and imagination rare in the Lake District prose of the period'. [Bicknell, The picturesque scenery of the Lake District,> pp.27 and 4]. * Sir Ashton Lever (1729-1788) of Alkington Hall near Manchester, was an enthusiastic natural history collector. His collection was eventually put on public display in Leicester Square, London, where it occupied some sixteen rooms.

L’opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, 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. 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 THREE - Etching with engraving, 1774, signed on plate.

Taken from Vedute di Roma; the whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building. Hind 110, I/III; Focillon 830; Wilton Ely 243.

        Rovine di uno degli alloggiamneti de' Soldati presso ad una delle eminenti fabbriche di Adriano nella sua Villa in Tivoli

      Roma 1774 - - PRIMO STATO DI TRE - Acquaforte e bulino, 1774, firmata in lastra . Esemplare nel primo stato di tre, della contemporanea tiratura romana. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio con letter CB", con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Della serie Vedute di Roma. L’opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, 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. 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 THREE - Etching with engraving, 1774, signed on plate. From the contemporary Roman Edition. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "double encircled fleur de lys with letters CB", with margins, very good condition. Taken from Vedute di Roma; the whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building. Hind 113, I/III; Focillon 832; Wilton Ely 246.

        Le Logge di Raffaello

      1774 - Serie completa di 12 incisioni all’acquaforte, 1774/6, firmate e datate in lastra in basso a destra. Magnifiche prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "scudo con giglio" (ove presente), con ampli margini, carta con barbe, in eccellente stato di conservazione. La famosa serie delle Logge che reca i nomi di Giovanni Volpato e Giovanni Ottaviani, datata 1772/6 ebbe una gestazione lunga e travagliata, giustificata dall’enorme mole di lavoro. La serie, a cui il Volpato deve gran parte della sua notorietà nell’ambiente romano del tempo, è la prima opera che affronta, in modo dettagliato e completo, la riproduzione degli ornati dei pilastri delle Logge affrescate da Raffaello. Uscirono in tre volumi tra il 1772 ed il 1776, frutto della collaborazione del pittore Gaetano Savorelli, dell’architetto Pietro Camporesi e dell’incisore Giovanni Ottaviani per la prima parte, cui dal 1772 si aggiunsero Ludovico Teseo e il Volpato, che firmarone le tavole della terza parte, raffigurante i pilastri. L’intervento di Volpato, che assunse in certo senso la direzione dell’opera legando il suo nome all’impresa, costituisce il motivo del suo trasferimento a Roma, probabilmente chiamato da Clemente XIV (1769-1774). Le tavole del Volpato, incise tra il 1774 ed il 1776 con la collaborazione del Teseo che si occupava dei rilievi, riproducono con grande libertà traduttiva i dodici contropilastri della Loggia. La scarsa visibilità della parte inferiore dell’affresco spinse l’artista ad applicare integrazioni di fantasia, come nel caso di alcuni pilastri dove sono inseriti elementi decorativi desunti dalle bordure di alcuni arazzi vaticani. Ciò non impedì tuttavia le vasta ed immediata risonanza che ebbe la raccolta, che costituì un importante repertorio figurativo da cui attingere motivi di decorazione, contribuendo al grande successo dei temi grotteschi del periodo neoclassico. Sono note delle prove con coloritura coeva; le prove destinate alla coloritura sono stampate con inchiostro marrone/bistro dai toni più delicati, come queste che presentiamo, e sono assolutamente più rare. Magnifico set, omogeneo, in eccellente stato di conservazione. A complete series of 12 etchings, 1774/6, signed and dated at lower right. Magnificent works, printed on contemporary laid paper with "shield with lily" watermark (if present), with wide margins, untrimmed, in excellent condition. The famous series of the Loggias, bearing the names of Giovanni Volpato and Giovanni Ottaviani, has been realized between 1772 and 1776; the process of realization was quite long, due to the proportion of the work. This series, which made Volpato quite famous in the Roman artistic environment of his time, is the first work that represents, minutely and completely, the pillars decorations of the Loggias painted by Raphael. Three volumes were published between 1772 and 1776, as the result of the cooperation of the painter Gaetano Savorelli, the architect Pietro Camporesi and the engraver Giovanni Ottaviani for the first part; in 1772 Ludovico Teseo and Volpato joined them and signed the plates of the third part, the one depicting the pillars. To work on this series, Volpato, who became in a way the project manager, moved to Rome, very likely upon pope Clement XIV request (1769-1774). Volpato’s plates, engraved between 1774 and 1776 together with Teseo who worked on the relieves, represent quite freely the twelve counter pillars of the Loggia. The scarce visibility of the lower part of the fresco brought the artist to integrate the missing parts with fictitious elements, as in the decorations of some pillars taken from the tapestries in the Vatican. Nevertheless, this did not affect the immediate and huge echo the collection had, for it represented an important figurative repertoire from which many other artists could draw inspiration and it gave a remarkable contribution to the circulation of the grotesque themes of the Neoclassical period.

        Carte de la N.le Zelande visiteée en 1769 et 1770 par le Lieutenant J. Cook commandant de l'Endeavour vaißeau de la Majesté

      Parigi 1774 - Edizione francese della mappa della Nuova Zelanda del capitano J. Cook, che riporta le rotte seguite intorno alle due grandi isole (Isola del Nord e Isola del Sud) dal 6 ottobre 1769 al primo aprile 1770. James Cook fu il primo a operare il rilevamento integrale delle coste. Esemplare tratto dalla prima edizione dell'opera "Relation des voyages entrepris par ordre de Sa Majeste Britannique . . ." di John Hawkersworth, pubblicata a Parigi nel 1774. Incisione su rame, carta irregolare il solo margine sinistro, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione. French edition of Cook’s foundation map of New Zealand, showing the track of the Endeavour around both islands, from October 6, 1769, to April 1, 1770. From John Hawkesworth’s "Relation des voyages entrepris par ordre de Sa Majeste Britannique . . ." (Paris, 1774). Copperplate, in very good condition. Endeavour came within sight of land on April 19, well north of the area charted by Tasman 125 years earlier. The New Holland (Australia) coast was exasperating, however, and Cook could not find a safe place to land until the afternoon of Saturday, April 28, when they entered Botany Bay (part of today’s Sydney Harbor), which Cook later named for the wide variety of plant life found there. The Aborigines that they saw there were unintelligible to Tupaia and kept away, avoiding contact. Through May and into June, Endeavour sailed north, arcing northwest, following the Great Barrier Reef coastline. On the evening of June 10, when most of the men were sleeping, the ship struck coral, stuck fast, and began leaking. Quick thinking and decisive action by Cook and his men—pumping furiously and jettisoning fifty tons of decayed stores, stone ballast, and cannons—kept the ship afloat and allowed a temporary underwater repair. A few days later, the damaged ship was safely beached on a barren shore (near today’s Cooktown, by the EndeavourRiver), and a fury of activity began more permanent work: the expedition had avoided a real disaster. (Henceforth, the British Admiralty would send Cook out with two ships for safety.) During this time, the men enjoyed more favorable interactions with the natives, but not without miscommunications and incidents of distrust. By August 13, the ship was ready to resume its journey. The labyrinth of treacherous islands and reefs was threaded slowly and carefully, with vigilance and some luck, as the expedition sailed northward through the Great Barrier Reef, westward around the northernmost point of New Holland, and into what Cook called Endeavour Strait. He stopped briefly at Possession Island (his name) where, now knowing he was in territory explored by the Dutch, he claimed the whole coastline he had just charted for King George III. It was a proud moment, essentially marking the end of Cook’s first Pacific voyage’s geographical discoveries. Dimensioni 404 510mm [Attributes: First Edition]

Seltene erste Ausgabe der holländischen Übersetzung von C. Niebuhrs Reisebeschreibung nach Arabien u. andern umliegenden Ländern (1774-78). Der deutsche Mathematiker u. Kartograph Carsten Niebuhr (1733-1815) trat 1760 als Ingenieurleutnant in dänische Dienste und nahm 1 Jahr später an der königlich-dänischen Arabien-Expedition teil, die ihn durch Unter-Ägypten zum Roten Meer, längs der arabischen Küste nach Yemen, weiter nach Bombay, von dort zurück über Maskat in Oman u. durch den Persischen Golf u. Mesopotamien nach Syrien u. Palästina, schließlich durch Klein-Asien nach Konstantinopel führte von wo aus er (als einziger Überlebender der Expedition) dann 1767 die Heimreise nach Kopenhagen antrat. Niebuhr war der erste, der die Methode der Monddistanzen auf dem Festland zur Bestimmung der geographischen Länge anwandte u. konnte so die erste Kartenskizze des Roten Meeres sowie die erste genaue Karte des Jemen anfertigen. Zudem hatte er umfangreiches Inschriftenmaterial aufgenommen, womit er einen großen Beitrag zur späteren Erforschung der alten Schriften leistete. Als erste literarische Hauptfrucht der langen Reise veröffentlichte er 1772 die Beschreibung Arabiens. 1774 erschien dann schließlich der erste Band der vorliegenden Reisebeschreibung, die lt. Henze "das an gesicherten Daten reichhaltigste und nützlichste Werk asiatischer Forschungsliteratur des 18. Jahrhunderts" darstellt. Ein dritter Schlußband sollte bei der deutschen Originalausgabe erst 1837, 12 Jahre nach N.s Tod herausgegeben werden. Die fein gestochenen Tafeln zeigen neben zahlreichen Inschriften auch schöne Ansichten u. Panoramen sowie etliche Genre-Szenen u. Typen. - Letzte Lage (Ss.449-455) von Bd. 2 fehlt.

        Cadastral Maps of the Domains of the Hochberg Family in Lower Silesia

      [Rohnstock?] 1774 - Original manuscript index and hand painted watercolor maps. Many signed by E. G. Mütz and Gottfried Riedel. Sizes vary, the single sheets are ca. 400 × 250 mm, the folded maps are ca. 400 × 530; 640 × 260; 360 × 460 mm. Maps are titled in German in ink, the index is written in brown and red ink. (4) pages of index, and 16 watercolor maps (14 folded). A unique collection of sixteen watercolor, late 18th century, Lower Silesian cadastral maps. The Lower Silesian Duchy of Pless with its capital Pless (present-day Pszczyna, Poland), belonged to the Hochberg family, who were one of the richest and most influential families in Silesia, holding the titles Baron of Fürstensteins, Count of Hochberg and Prince of Pless. The first notable member of the family was Konrad I von Hoberg who obtained the castle hill of Fürstenstein (present-day: Ksi??, Poland) in 1506, thus the history of Hochbergs in Lower Silesia, that lasted until the 1940s, when the Castle of Fürstenstein and other properties were confiscated by the Nazis, started. Throughout the course of five centuries, the generations of the Hochbergs lived here and expanded their domains. Following the death of Hans Heinrich II von Hochberg (1639-1698), the land had been divided between family branches until the attempt of Hans Heinrich V (1741-1782) in 1764, who tried to unify the family property. In order to keep it intact and within the family he also established a fee tail, a fideicommissum in 1772. This collection of elaborately painted watercolor cadastral maps were supposedly created in relation to this endeavour, to register the exact locations, dimensions, and cultivations of the lands at Rohnstock (Roztoka) and its vicinity: Dätzdorf (Dzier?ków), Girlachsdorf (Gniewków), Günthersdorf (Godzieszów), Thomasdorf (Domanów), Bohrau (Borów), Kunzendorf (Ko?czyce), Heintzwaldau (Wykroty?). Many of them are dated between 1771 and 1774 and signed by two different hands, E. G. Mütz (I-V) and Meister Gottfried Riedel (VI-16). Some leaves with light brown stains, more significant at foldings. Sheets are loose, housed in a folder. Restored artistically. Overall in very good condition. Original manuscript index and hand painted watercolor maps. Many signed by E. G. Mütz and Gottfried Riedel. Sizes vary, the single sheets are ca. 400 × 250 mm, the folded maps are ca. 400 × 530; 640 × 260; 360 × 460 mm. Maps are titled in German in ink, the index is written in brown and red ink.

A rare American printing of Shipley's popular defence of colonial rights. Originally published in London in 1774, it went through a number of American editions that same year. When Parliament wanted to punish Massachusetts for the Boston Tea Party, Shipley published this ringing defense of American liberty. Shipley was the Bishop of St. Asaph and his pro-American speech became immediately popular in the colonies. "It was considered a masterpiece at the time" - DNB. While it is unclear why Shipley never delivered his speech, the printed version was a tremendous success, prompting Franklin to write to him, "The cause of liberty and America has been greatly obliged to you." Of this Salem printing, ESTC locates only the copy at the American Antiquarian Society, and Adams adds only one other copy, at the Massachusetts Historical Society. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 141h.

        Joseph Banks Esq

      London: W. Dickinson, 30 January, 1774. Mezzotint portrait, 510 x 370 mm.; a very good impression, mounted and framed. Only twenty-eight or twenty-nine years of age, Banks is shown sitting confidently at his desk, surrounded by the accoutrements of his science: books, papers, and a prominently placed world globe.The mezzotint is based on the portrait painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds in 1772-3, when Banks was at the height of his fame after returning triumphant from Cook's first voyage and the discovery of the east coast of Australia. His ambitions and achievements are neatly captured in the prominently placed Latin tag, "cras ingens iterabimus æquor" (Horace: "tomorrow we will be back on the vast ocean", and an intriguing choice as the engraving was published at much the same time as Banks withdrew from Cook's second voyage).The engraving was made by William Dickinson in the latter half of 1773. It was the same year that Dickinson first began to publish his own prints, after a lengthy apprenticeship and association with the painter Robert Edge Pine, at whose house in St Martin's Lane he lodged between 1768 and 1771. His relationship with Reynolds was evidently good: this was the first of no less than twenty-two mezzotints after Reynolds that he completed and this very rare and fine image of Banks is one of the most celebrated.
