        Pianta di Roma e del Campo Marzio

      Roma 1774 - La "Pianta di Roma e del Campo Marzio" appartiene al culmine della carriera del Piranesi. Nata dalla necessità di offrire una pianta di riferimento che accompagnasse le oltre 100 tavole delle "Vedute di Roma", l'opera fu intesa come tavola finale e indice dell'opera, con con cui veniva spesso venduta e rilegata. Attraverso le tre lastre che compongono questa grande piante, l'autore ha cercato di mettere in relazione le rovine superstiti di epoca antica con la contemporanea topografia di Roma, e di offrire dei riferimenti per i momumenti elencati ai due lati della mappa. Nella parte superiore ha realizzato una mappa della città contemporanea compresa entro le Mura Aureliane, estendendola a nord, a includere il territorio tra Porta del Popolo e Ponte Milvio, e inglobando anche l'area del Campo Marzio. Quest'area è mostrata nel dettaglio in una mappa isolata, in basso a destra, che mostra le antichità più importanti evidenziate da un numero che trova corrispondenza con quelli della mappa più grande. Ai lati, un indice dettagliato dei momumenti, con i numeri corrispondenti nella pianta grande, e con i rimandi ai passaggi più rilevanti delle sue opere maggiori: le Antichità Romane, Della Magnificenza ed Archittettura dei Romani e il Campo Marzio. L'opera è dedicata a papa Clemente XIV (1769-1774). La datazione dell'opera è complessa: - nel catalogo del 1792 di Francesco Piranesi, figlio dell'autore, l'opera è assegnata al 1778, data che, sebbene molto tarda - l'autore muore infatti il 9 novembre di quell'anno - viene accettata da Focillon e Hind. Questa datazione, tuttavia, è certamente basata su un errore, poiché nell'Avvertimento nella parte superiore della mappa, l'autore fa riferimento alla "approvazione che si è degnata mostrarne la Santità di N.ro Sig.re PAPA CLEMENTE XIV felicemente regnante", per cui l'opera non può essere successiva al 1774. A supporto di questa datazione, è un esemplare del Catalogo delle Opere, descritto da Scott, che contiene tre voci manoscritte per tre Vedute di Roma databili al 1774, e indica che la mappa era già disponibile. Esemplare dalla contemporanea edizione romana. Acquaforte e bulino, stampata da tre matrici su tre fogli carta vergata coeva uniti insieme, con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio", in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensione complessiva dei tre fogli: 132.1 x 82.1 cm Dimensioni complessive delle lastre: 121.2 x 71.1 cm Plan of Rome and the Campus Martius, formed by three plates and usually found in association with the "Vedute di Roma". He may have felt the need for a reference map to accompany collections of these plates and devised this work to fill this need. Exercising his skills in presenting formidable quantities of information coherently, he sought to relate the surviving remains of antiquity to the contemporary topography of Rome and to offer an easy reference to published information about them. He therefore produced a large map of the modern city within the Aurelian Walls, together with an extension showing the territory to the north, between Porta del Popolo and Ponte Milvio and including the Campus Martius area. Thi is augmented by a smaller map isolating the principal antiquities, which were marked with numbers correspondending to those in the larger map. Around these Piranesi arranged a detailed index listing the monuments according to their assigned numbers and referring to relevant passages in his major pubblications, including the Antichità Romane, Della Magnificenza ed Archittettura dei Romani and Campo Marzio. The dating of the map is problematic, since, although it is dedicated to Clemente XIV (1769-1774), Francesco Piranesi's 1792 cataloghe assigns is to 1778 and most authorities, including Giesecke, Focillon and Hind, have accepted a late, if not posthumous date; however this date is certainly based on error, since Giambattista, in his Avvertimento at the top of the main map, refers to "l'approvazione che si è degnata mostrarne la Santità di N.ro Sig.re PA

      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.

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]

        Joseph Banks Esq

      W. Dickinson, 30 January, London 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.

        L'Art de la peinture sur verre et de la vitrerie.

      S.l. [Paris], 1774 - In-folio, 465 x 305 : (1 f. blanc), xiv, 245 pp., 13 planches, couverture muette. — Toile grise, dos lisse muet, non rogné, couverture conservée (reliure du XXe siècle). Édition originale posthume de ce traité important composé par le peintre Pierre Le Vieil (1708-1772). Publié dans le cadre de la « Collection et description des arts et métiers de Mrs de l’Académie royale des sciences », il est l’une des bases de l’historiographie du vitrail, le premier notamment à rendre hommage aux peintres verriers du passé. Débutant par une préface et un éloge historique de l’ateur, l’ouvrage est divisé en 3 parties. Les deux premières portent repectivement sur l’histoire de l’art de la peinture sur verre (son origine, son emploi chez les anciens, etc.) et sur sa pratique (recettes autrefois utilisées, manière de faire les émaux colorés, etc). Cette seconde partie se termine par des extraits d’un ouvrage anglais Sur la peinture tant en émail que sur verre, & sur la Composition des différentes sortes de Verre blanc & coloré (1758). L’ouvrage se termine par une dernière partie consacrée à l’art du vitrier. L’édition est illustrée de 13 planches dessinées et gravées sur cuivre par Pierre-Claude Delagardette (1745-1792 ?).

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.

        Legal Manuscript Document about "Slave Stealing" in Colonial North Carolina. John Collson. "The King against Jas. Wishart."

      North Carolina: 1774 - Legal document, single leaf, about 8vo size (6" 7 1/4"), 2 pp., text on both sides. Paper very browned, some ink smudging, a few tiny holes at old folds; otherwise about very good. This is a somewhat scarce colonial southern slave document where it appears that a David Smith had one of his slaves swiped from him. "…David Smith… made oath that…Wishart came to his house and with force did fraudentaly take and cary away a Negroe Boy Named James the property of…Smith greatly to his damage and agt the peace of his sovn lord the king his Crown and Dignity…" An order of arrest for both Smith and the slave, signed also by the law enforcement officer who made the arrests. Interestingly, years latter, "slave stealing" was typically the work of abolitionists trying to help slaves escape .While it is not totally clear, the judge in this case was a wealthy businessman and land-owner and may have been a British Loyalist fleeing to England after the war.

        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 SPEECH INTENEDD [sic] TO HAVE BEEN SPOKEN IN THE HOUSE OF LORDS, ON THE BILL FOR ALTERING THE CHARTER OF THE COLONY OF MASSACHUSETT'S-BAY

      Salem, N.E.: Printed and sold by E. Russell, 1774. 16pp. Half title. Antique-style half calf. Early ownership signature on titlepage of Richard Dexter. Quite tanned, scattered foxing. Good. 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.
