Anonimo
1775. Bulino, privo di dati editoriali. Ottima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. L'opera è incisa con una tecnica che richiama il niello ed è stata per tanti anni attribuita in maniera dubitativa alla mano di Maso Finiguerra, maestro orafo fiorentino del Rinascimento. L'opera è presente anche nella collezione del British Museum, acquistata nel 1837 come niello di Finiguerra. Oggi tutti gli studiosi, brancolando abbastanza nel buio tuttavia, datano l'opera al XVIII secolo. Engraving, printed from a plate engraved in the niello manner, possibly 1775-1800. This fascinating work, was for years attributed to the hand of Maso Finiguerra. A good impression, printed on laid paper, tirmmed to the paletamrk, good condition. Hind 1936 294.a; K. Oberhuber, Maso Finiguerra, in Early Italian Engravings from the National Gallery of Art, catalogo della mostra [Washington 1973], pp. 1-9: 5).

Campomanes, Pedro Rodriguez, Conde de
Antonio de Sancha, 1775. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 8vo. [24], 475, [1] pp. Binding with minor rubbing (a few insignificant wormholes) but overall in excellent condition, the text very clean and crisp. Contemporary Spanish mottled sheep, smooth spine gilt, red morocco label, early paper shelf label at foot, marbled endpapers and edges. Very good. ¶ An extraordinary work on Spanish business development through education of artisans and craftsmen. The work deals with female labor, trades, apprenticeships, as well as provisions and funds for the disabled and old aged members of the working class. It also has a chapter about Spanish foreign trade, notably with the West Indies. ¶ Albert Boime gives an insightful overview of the Spanish government at the time: "Goya's print of the 'Crockery Vendor' celebrates the Spanish government's ideal of a prosperous and proud artisan class, enunciated in Campomanes's publications of 1774-1775, 'Discurso sobre el fomento de la industria popular and Discurso sobre la educacion popular de los artesanos y su fomento.' Campomanes hoped to put to work all the idle classes of the nation, and to this end urged the cultivation of domestic crafts like pottery (although most of his examples are taken from the textile industry) that would not take people from small towns and farms. Over and over he praised the work of the economic societies for their encouragement of the arts and crafts, emphasizing their broad social appeal and representation. He especially lauded the spread of drawing instruction, which he considered 'the father of practical trades an … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: J Wilkie [and] T Cadell, 1775 Book. Very Good. Full-Leather. 1st Edition.

Both works are bound together in eighteenth century calf with a single gilt fillet to the boards, rebacked to style, reusing the original red morocco label. Early nineteenth century pastedown and first endpaper followed by original endpaper and Hamilton's Observations from 1774, published by Cadell: iv, pp 180, 5 plates and a large folding map of the Bay of Naples, short closed tear. The second item in the book is the Earl of Winchelsea's 'Exact Relation... Now Reprinted from A Scarce Pamphlet... To which is now added a Genuine Letter... Purposing to Describe The Last Great Eruption... of Mount Aetna, In the Year 1766', J Wilkie, 1775, pp28; pp34, 1 plate. ESTC locates six copies each in the UK and USA of this latter work which is distinctly uncommon and not found in auction records.

Leipzig, Fritsch, 1775-1977. Mit gestoch. Portr., 6 gestoch. Kopfvign. von G. M. Krauss und 5 gestoch. Frontisp. von D. Chodowiecki. Erste Ausgabe der Übersetzung von Bertuch. – Goed. IV/1, 679, 12. Rius I, 738. Bauer 259-63. Engelmann 147, 169-71. Don Quijote, Ausgaben in vierhundert Jahre, 82: "Die ersten vier Bände enthalten das Originalwerk Cervantes’, die beiden letzten die Fortsetzung von Fernández de Avellaneda. Die Bedeutung dieser Übersetzung Bertuchs liegt aber nicht nur in der Tatsache, dass sie direkt vom Original angefertigt wurde, sondern auch in der Absicht des Autors, die Personen unter Zuhilfenahme eines etwas herben, umgangssprachlichen Vokabulars zu ‘germanisieren’. Das führte dazu, dass Sancho zum echten sächsischen Bauern wurde, während die Figur des ‘Don Quijote’ verzerrt erscheint, da er versuchte, ihm diesen archaischen und längst veralteten Charakter der früheren Ritterromane zu verleihen. Die Bertuchsche Übersetzung genoss grosse Popularität in Deutschland, und sein Werk wurde mehrere Male und an verschiedenen Orten neu verlegt, wodurch der Autor ein kleines Vermögen gewann. Allerdings musste er auch negative Kritiken über sich ergehen lassen, wie z. B. die von Ch. G. von Murr, der die Meinung vertrat, dass, um Cervantes zu übersetzen, eine profunde Kenntnis der spanischen Kultur Voraussetzung war, und die Übersetzung Bertuchs zu oberflächlich geraten sei." - einige Seiten wegen unterschiedlichem Papier gebräunt, sonst meist sauber und gut erhalten Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 550 Lederbände der Zeit mit vergold Rückentitel, etwas Rückenvergo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Qur'an]. Boysen, Friedrich Eberhard (ed.).
Halle, J. J. Gebauers Wittwe & Johann Jakob Gebauer, 1775. 8vo. 42 (but: 40), 678 pp. With engraved frontispiece. Contemporary unsophisticated wrappers. Second edition of Boysen's German translation of the Qur'an, first published in 1773. This is the second German Qur'an translation based on the original Arabic text, following that of Megerlin in 1772. While Boysen's version is considered more scholarly, more reliable and more readable that Megerlin's, it suffers from a lack of Sura markings, a fact which rendered it a tedious companion for studying the original. The translation was republished, with corrections, in 1828 by S. F. G. Wahl. - Pagination of preliminaries agrees with NUC, with pp. 15f. skipped. Binding a little duststained; spine professionally rebacked. Some browning and foxing, with light waterstaining near the end. Stamp of the Vicariate Apostolic of Oslo to verso of frontispiece; title-page has contemporary handwritten ownership "Kath. Bibliothek". An untrimmed, partly uncut and wide-margined copy.

Massachusetts. Committee of Safety .
Benjamin Edes ?, Watertown, Mass. ?, 1775. continues, "You are hereby aquainted that the Commission as Captain in said Service shall be made out for you as soon as you have compleated the said inlistment, and you also will be allowed to nominate 2 Subalterns to serve under you, who shall receive Commissions accordingly, if the Committee shall approve of them. By Order of the Committee of Safety, [signed in ink] Jos. Warren, Chairman." Warren signed this single sheet document as the Chair of the Committee of Safety, and as President of the Massachusetts Provincial Congress. The latter post was attained when he succeeded John Hancock, only the day before. This document dates from the earliest beginnings of the Revolutionary War, being just 5 days after the Battles of Lexington & Concord. Samuel A. Foreman in his book about Joseph Warren, describes the context and importance of this document: "The Provincial Congress met at 7:00 AM on Sunday, April 23, to raise an army of thirty thousand. Immediately to be raised by Massachusetts were 13,600 men and the rest requested of neighboring provinces. Warren.was in the center of these actions transitioning the mobilized militia into a standing army. The next day the Committee of Safety sent six hundred enlisting papers to the printing press, each one authorizing an officer to sign up enlisted men for the Provincial Army." Dr. Warren was killed, June 17, 1775 during the battle of Bunker Hill. This "martyrdom" stirred many to the patriot cause. One of the rarest of all Revolutionary War autographs. Size: 7 1/2" X 8"

London printed for and sold by the Author and B. White -1777-1798, 1775. 2 volumes, folio (46 x 27 cm). Engraved vignette on title-page, 435 (on 432) hand-coloured plates after Sydenham Edwards, William Kilburn, James Sowerby and others, dedication leaves and 1 leaf of subscribers in vol. I. (upper outer corner of one text leaf (for Veronica Montana. Mountain Speedwell, the seventh plate) in vol.II torn and repaired with text supplied in manuscript, some leaves very lightly browned, a few instances of offsetting). Nineteenth century brown half morocco gilt over red pebble-grained cloth sides, First edition, with interesting provenance, of William Curtis's magisterial survey of the flora of London and the southern counties of England. It was the earliest English flora illustrated with coloured plates to be in any way approaching comprehensive. This copy with the catalogue of plants in the environs of Settle, the general observations on grasses, and the indices to the fascicules, often lacking. The work, intended to portray all the native plants within a ten-mile radius of London, was issued irregularly in 75 numbers between May 1775 and 1798. However, Curtis's ambitious enterprise received little encouragement, and was cut short for lack of subscriptions. According to Henrey's account, no more than 300 of any single number are believed to have been printed. Curtis's reputation as a botanist was such that he was made the praefectus horti (or director) of the Society of Apothecaries at the Chelsea Physic Garden in 1772. The following year he established a botanical garden for … [Click Below for Full Description]

WESLEY, John
London: R. Hawes, in Dorset-Street, Spitalfields, 1775. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An incredibly rare first edition of John Wesley's argument in favor of taxing the American colonies! John Wesley was an English Anglican cleric and theologian. Wesley was one of the most important Anglican theologians and is most remembered for helping found Methodism. Many of Wesley's doctrines contrasted Whitefield's Calvinism and promoted his theology in his evangelism and missions. Wesley was an advocate for Arminianism, which strongly opposes Calvinism. Wesley also was an active political advocate, supporting British parliament as well as the Church of England's rule in the American Colonies. From Abelove: "About the last week of September 1775, John Wesley published 'A Calm Address to Our American Colonies'. In it he argued that 'the supreme power in England' had a clear, legal right to tax the colonies and that the Americans who thought otherwise and were 'all in an uproar' had been misled by a small cabal of designing Englishmen. What these Englishmen secretly hoped to do was overthrow the monarchy, and they were fomenting civil unrest in American and in England, too, as a means to that end. If the Americans wanted to be sensible, they would stop acting as dupes of the cabal and quietly pay their taxes." Sabin notes on this work that it is, "a condensation without acknowledgment of Dr. [Samuel] Johnson's 'Taxation no Tyranny'. [Attributes: First Edition]

Klinger, Friedrich Maximilian v.).
Leipzig, Weygand, 1775. Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe von Klingers erstem dramatischen Versuch sowie erster selbständiger Veröffentlichung, der nur einzelne Gedichtveröffentlichungen vorausgegangen waren. Unter dem Einfluss von Goethes Götz entstanden, war Klingers Trauerspiel "ein von aufrichtigem Zorn gegen die abgelebten Ordnungen erfülltes Stück mit scharf ausgeprägter antiklerikaler und antifeudaler Tendenz" (Smoljan S. 36). Fast alle Zeitschriften besprachen und kritisierten "Otto". Sie bestritten nicht, dass der Verfasser Talent habe, verurteilten das Stück jedoch wegen seiner neuartigen Ästhetik. Das Trauerspiel fehlt in allen von Klinger selbst besorgten Sammlungen. Klingers Schauspiel "Sturm und Drang", ursprünglich unter dem Titel "Der Wirrwarr" konzipiert, gab später einer ganzen Literaturepoche den Namen. – Leichte Gebrauchsspuren, gelegentlich etwas fleckig, meist im Rand. Mit dem häufig fehlenden Blatt Errata, das laut Goedeke nur wenigen Exemplaren beigegeben wurde. – VD18 1533080X; Goed. IV 1, 806, 2; Schulte-Strathaus 1; Deneke 640. [Attributes: First Edition]

Klinger, Friedrich Maximilian v.).
Leipzig, Weygandsche Buchhandlung, 1775. – Vorgebunden: Leisewitz, Johann Anton. Julius von Tarent. Ein Trauerspiel. 109 S. Leipzig, Weygandsche Buchhandlung, 1776. I. Erste Ausgabe des Dramas, in dem Klinger fast verbittert das Resumé zieht, dass die Kräfte der Intrige und der Heuchelei stärker sind als die Redlichkeit der nach Veränderung Rufenden. Das "von Lenz' 'Hofmeister' und Lessings 'Emilia Galotti' beeinflußte Drama [ist] eines der repräsentativen Werke der Geniezeit. [Es] lebt aus dem Zwiespalt zwischen Geist und Trieb, Herz und Verstand, Freiheit und Gesetz, wobei die kritische Intention des Autors sowohl der demoralisierenden Virulenz der 'Schöngeisterei' als auch der diskriminierenden Rolle der Standesunterschiede, d. h. dem Spannungsverhältnis zwischen (Hof-)Adel und Bürgertum gilt" (KNLL). Es erschien noch vor Klingers 'Sturm und Drang', das die Epoche programmatisch beschrieb und ihr den Namen gab. Durch Goethes Vermittlung brachte Klinger das Stück bei Weygand heraus, dessen Verlag "sich schon als Haus der Geniebewegung etabliert hatte" (Killy). "In der Gestalt des 'Doctor' schwebte dem Dichter Goethe vor" (Schulte-Strathaus). Klinger hat dieses Werk nicht in die Sammlung seiner Werke aufgenommen, es geradezu verleugnet. Daher hielt Tieck später Jakob Michael Lenz für den Autor und hat es in die Gesamtausgabe von Lenz' Schriften aufgenommen. – VD18 15330826; Goed. IV 1, 804, 3a; Schulte-Str. 2. – II.

Zürich, Orell, Geßner, Fueßlin und Comp., 1775. 123 S. und (5) S. (Verlagsanzeigen), Halbpergament-Band der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel, marmorierten Decken und dreiseitigem Rotschnitt, Titelblatt mit gestochener Vignette, (Einband minimal fleckig), 18 x 11,3 cm. Erste Ausgabe. Der Schweizer Arzt, Politiker und Philanthrop Hans Caspar (auch Hans Kaspar oder Johann Caspar) Hirzel (1725 - 1803) stammte aus einer angesehenen und erfolgreichen Züricher Familie. "1745 ging der Jüngling zu seinem Fachstudium nach Leyden, wo er promovirte, und nach Berlin und verlebte ein Jahr in Potsdam als Gehülfe eines tüchtigen Arztes. Aber daneben war er Träger Bodmer'scher Verbindungen nach Norddeutschland, mit Kleist besonders, dann mit Gleim, Ramler, mit dem Landsmann Sulzer in Verkehr. 1747 kehrte er, voll Begierde, seine Kenntnisse thatsächlich zum Besten seiner Mitbürger zu verwerthen, zurück; insbesondere schloß er sich auch sogleich der im vorigen Jahre gestifteten physikalischen Gesellschaft als ein stets eifrig thätiges Mitglied an. Als Arzt schuf er sich bald einen Namen, besonders für Behandlung von Geisteskranken; aber auch in verschiedenen medicinischen Beamtungen arbeitete er für den Hebammenunterricht, für Verbesserung der medicinischen Polizei, machte sich auch durch Vorlesungen für Studirende nützlich. 1761 wurde er erster Stadtphysikus und oberster Spitalarzt (Archiater). Ebenso war er 1763 als Mitglied des großen, 1778 als solches des kleinen und darauf auch des geheimen Rathes erwählt worden.

William Cullen (1710-1790) was one of the most important figures in the medical world of the late 18th-century, being a professor at the Edinburgh Medical School which was a leading center of medical education at the time; his students included Joseph Black, Benjamin Rush, John Morgan (founder of the Medical School at the College of Philadelphia, the first medical school in America), William Withering, Sir Gilbert Blane, and John Coakley Lettsom. ___DESCRIPTION: Contemporary binding of dark brown leather (now professionally restored, see condition statement below), plain endpapers, Index at the rear; octavo size (approximately 9.5" tall), pagination: (i)-viii, (1)-512. ___CONDITION: We have had professional restoration work done on the binding, the restorer laid the original leather over new boards and the binding is now strong and secure; one can still see the contemporary marks written on the old leather, including some partial names.

The three maps are lacking. All other illustrations are present in good condition but including usual offsetting and a few showing minor mottling and browning. Plate XI, stated in the List of Plates to be a Bartolozzi engraved plate designed by Cypriani from an original onyx Camaio by the Greek artist Tryphon is the correct plate, although in fact it bears no plate No. and the imprint " G. B. Cipriani Del, I.K. Sherwin Sculp.". Although Bartolozzi normally signs his studio's plates, J. K. Sherwin was an apprentice of Bartolozzi's, and presumably was allowed to sign his engraving in this instance. The plate's design matches "The Marriage of Eros and Psyche" from Tryphon's Camaio in the Duke of Marlborough's Collection (see e.g Wikipaedia: "The Marlborough Gem"). Bentley, BB, 439.

Academiae Regalis Scientiarum et nonnullorum alior, secundum annotationes recentissimas." Altkolorierte Kupferstichkarte von Matthäus A. Lotter nach Guillaume de l'Isle. Erschienen bei Lotter in Augsbu, 1775. 45,5:64,3 cm. - Die übliche Bugfalte, sowie zwei alte, nicht störende Papierquetschfalten. Der breite Papierrand durch angesetzte Ränder extrem verbreitert. - In Sammlermappe. Vgl. Ritter: Die Welt aus Augsburg. S. 158. - Nach der Löschung der Datierung und des Stechers. Die Karte, ein etwas veränderter Neustich der um 1705 erstmals bei Wolff in Augsburg erschienenen exakten Kopie nach der Mappe-Monde von de l'Isle, der besten Karte ihrer Zeit. Die Darstellung der Welt in zwei zusammenhängenden Hemisphären (links die neue Welt, rechts die alte Welt) war im Verlauf des vergangenen Jahrhunderts zur häufigsten Darstellungsweise geworden. Die sogenannte Azimutalprojektion, bei der die Schnittlinie der beiden Hemisphären durch den Nullmeridian festgelegt ist, wurde auch von de l'Isle benutzt. Der Verlauf dieses Längengrades verlief bis 1884 häufig durch die Kanarische Insel El Hierro (vormals Ferro). Danach wurde er zur Londoner Sternwarte Greenwich verlegt. In den oberen Ecken zwei kleine Polkarten, in der Mitte eine dekorative Titelkartusche, mit den Personifikationen der vier damals bekannten Kontinente. Die Westküste von Nordamerika, sowie Teile von Australien und Neuguinea sind nicht ausgeführt. Im Indischen Ozean und vor allem im Pazifik sind zahlreiche Routen verschiedener Entdecker eingezeichnet. - Insgesamt absolut sauberes und frisches Exemplar.

BELLIN, Jacques-Nicolas.
Paris, c.1775. 4to, contemporary half calf gilt; 73 engraved maps, all but 7 folding, with a folding letterpress plate. A fine, clean example of the atlas volume of a posthumous edition to Abbé Antoine François Prévost d'Exiles's 'Histoire Generale des Voyages'. It contains a large planisphere world map, 10 maps of Africa, 22 of Asia, 31 of the Americas, 6 of Arctic Europe, 4 plates relating to Cook in the Pacific, including a letterpress comparison of languages. Begun in 1746, this edition has been extended to cover the first two voyages of Captain Cook to the South Pacific. The world map is dated 1748 but shows Cook's mapping of New Zealand and New South Wales; the last map is Cook's map of the South Hemisphere engraved by Robert Bénard for the French edition of Cook's Second Voyage, published 1778.
