        Verzeichnis der ihm bekannten Schweizerischen Inseckten mit einer ausgemahlten Kupfertafel: nebst der Ankündigung eines neuen Insecten Werks.

      Zürich und Winterthur, bey dem Verfasser, und in Commission bey Heinrich Steiner und Compagnie, 1775. 4to (260 x 212mm). pp. xii, 62, with engraved title-vignette and 1 hand-coloured engraved plate. Contemporary half calf, gilt lettered spine (ends of spine a bit worn). Johann Caspar Füsslin better known under the name of Füessly was the most important Swiss entomological author of the period. Like most of his work the present publication was illustrated by J.R. Schellenberg. "Besonders bedeutend aber war und blieb Schellenbergs Arbeit für entomologische sowie für botanische Werke, die er... mit Aufträgen des Verlegers und Naturforschers Johann Caspar Füssli d.J. ab 1780 intensiv fortgesetzt hatte" (Thanner a.o. 'Johann Rudolf Schellenberg' p. 38). Some foxing to the text.//Nissen ZBI, 1456; Horn & Schenkling 7201.

        Afbeeldingen van de wyd-vermaarde koopstad Amsterdam,

      1775. FOUQUET, Pierre. Afbeeldingen van de wyd-vermaarde koopstad Amsterdam, benevens des zelvs voornaamste gebouwen en gezigten, alle naar het leeven getekend. Comprised of 102 full-page engraved plates, including a large plan of Amsterdam and 99 engraved views of the canals, streets, market scenes, buildings, churches, and town squares of Amsterdam, plus 2 extra views of Amsterdam from the 1783 series laid-in at back of volume, see below. Oblong folio, 358 x 504 mm, bound in contemporary three-quarter Dutch dark-brown calf, black leather title-label on spine, original blue paper over boards. Amsterdam: [ca. 1780]. |~||~||~||~||~||~| Spectacular Suite of views of eighteenth century Amsterdam in the original, unfolded state. Printed on special thick paper. These views are not only the finest visual record of the architecture of Amsterdam at the time, but they are also among the most artistic views produced in the eighteenth century of any city. The engravings offer a finely-detailed, encyclopedic summary of Amsterdam architecture; each of the scenes incorporates Dutch inhabitants plying their trades and performing daily routines, transforming the album into a unique record of contemporary life in Amsterdam. These engraved views were issued before the addition of text and, most importantly, in the original unfolded format. Printed on deluxe, thick paper, these often-exceptional townscapes and landscapes were initially printed and sold as individual prints. The first in the series to be issued were those engraved by Paul van Liender and Simon Fokke after drawings by the renowned Dutch artist Jan de Beyer (1703-1780), known for his drawings of towns and buildings in Holland, Belgium, and Germany. These are dated in the plate legend 1760 and 1762; in our suite they are seen in plate numbers: 2, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 15, 30, 34, 42, 43, 44, 45, 50, 52, 53, 61, & 72. The next series in chronological order are thirteen townscapes by Caspar Philips Jacobsz (1732-1785), etcher, engraver, illustrator, surveyor, and author (publishing several books on perspective). His Verzaamelin an alle de huizen en prachtige gebouwen langs de Keizers en Heere-Grachten der stadt Amsteldam (1768) is justly considered to be one of the great primary documents for the study of Amsterdam architectural heritage. The engravings by Philips date from 1764 to 1771 and consist of numbers: 5*, 8, 9, 14, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, 73 & 75. Philips also engraved two scenes after drawings by J. de Vlaaming dated 1768 and 1769, seen in plates 14 & 27. Seventy-three of the plates are undated and fifty-nine of them signed H. Schoute, a mysterious name in the history of Amsterdam townscape and landscape views. Other artists listed are C. Bogerts, H. Keun, J. de Naming, J.van der Schley, P.R. van Dijk, Coppier, and Spilman. There are two plates by J. de Vlaaming, one plate by H. Keun, three plates by Simon Fokke, two plates by P.R. van Dyck, and two unsigned plates. The majority of these plates are undated, but a few have dates ranging from 1762 to 1769. In 1783, the work was reprinted under the title: Nieuwe atlas van de voornaamste gebouwen en gezigten der stad Amsterdam, issued in two large quarto volumes with all the engravings folded. This was reprinted in 1805 with reworked engravings by E. Maaskamp. None of these editions reproduce the engraved images in anywhere near as fine impressions as found in the copy offered herewith. "To Pierre Fouquet (1729-1800), Flemish artist, art dealer and print publisher, can be attributed one of the finest series of engraved views of Amsterdam and its environs. Fouquet assembled a large number of original drawings, perhaps even commissioned several, from fellow artists such as Simon Fokke, Jan de Beyer, Caspar Philips Jacobsz, Reiner Vinkles, and Schouten. Expertly engraved to a standard only printers in Holland were capable of in the middle of the eighteenth-century, the views were issued in an atlas (Atlas van Fouquet, or Afbeeldingen van de Wyd-Vermaarde Koopstad Amsterdam) between 1760 and 1783. The prints were a major success; demand called for numerous reissues and revisions over the succeeding 30 years. Fouquet's prints were praised not only for their artistic quality, but also for capturing Amsterdam in a period of its greatest glory and splendour." Complete sets of these views are extremely rare; no copies listed at auction by ABPC. OCLC records nine copies (3 in USA: NYPL, Harvard, Trinity College CT; 4 in UK: Cambridge University, British Library, Victoria & Albert, and National Art Library; 2 in Holland: Bibliotheek Universiteit van Amsterdam, and Twente University in Enschede, Holland). Our copy does not have the words "HET YE" printed in the foreground of the map, as NYPL, Harvard, Amsterdam, and Twente University do have in their copies. Thus, it can be postulated that our copy represents an earlier issue. Our volume is lacking the general title-page and table on contents… never present in this contemporary bound volume. Laid-in at back are plates 20 ("Gezicht na de Leydsche Poort") and 34 ("Het Stads nieuwe Werk-huys") in impressions from the 1783 edition. Throughout very fine impressions. Nijhoff-Van Hattum 11. I.H. van Eeghen, Catalogus 115 prenten Amsterdam, P. Fouquet 1760-1783, 1a-86.

        Meynungen eines Layen - den Geistlichen zugeeignet. Stimmen des Layen auf dem letzten theologischen Reichstage im Jahr 1773. 189 S. Mit 2 Holzschnitt-Vignetten. Schlichter Pappbd d. Z. (beschabt, Gebrauchsspuren) in moderner Pappkassette mit vergold. Deckelschild.

      Leipzig, Weygand, 1775.. . Einzige Ausgabe, Rarissimum der deutschen Literatur. Diese zweiteilige Abhandlung ist Lenzens philosophisch-ästhetische und theologische Hauptschrift; Darstellung eines fiktiven Reichstages in Anlehnung an Klopstocks 'Gelehrtenrepublik'. In ihr emanzipiert sich der Sohn eines pietistischen Pastors in Livland am weitesten von den religiösen und weltanschaulichen Auffassungen, die seine Kindheit prägten, und säkularisiert sie entscheidend. Die Abhandlung ist als Vortrag konzipiert und wurde sicher in der Straßburger 'Sozietät' verlesen. Lenz selbst: "Die 'Meynungen eines Layen' sind der Grundstein meiner ganzen Poesie, aller meiner Wahrheit, all meines Gefühls" (zit. nach Schulte-Strathaus). "Rousseaus energet. Menschenbild wertete den Körper u. seine Energien auf, um ihn zu lenken, anstatt ihn zu unterdrücken. Wie alle Autoren des Sturm und Drang bejahte auch Lenz die menschl. Physis: 'Ist der Körper nicht das einzige, wodurch alles Glück zu uns kommt?' [zit. aus 'Meynungen eines Layen']. Damit verschärfte sich enorm die Kulturaufgabe, sexuelle Triebenergien sozialverträglich zu bändigen ... Die Triebenergie darf jedoch nicht verausgabt werden, sondern ist zu sublimieren, um den Menschen in ständiger Progression ('Streben') zu erhalten. So verknüpft L. in der Sublimierung den Fortschrittsgedanken der Aufklärung mit dem Individualismus des Sturm und Drang" (Killy, Literatur-Lexikon). Unmittelbaren Anstoß zu dieser Schrift hatte sein Freund Herder mit seiner 'Ältesten Urkunde des Menschengeschlechts' (1774) gegeben. Herder vermutete sofort Lenz als Autor des anonym erschienenen Buches und fragte diesen: "Hast Du die 'Meinungen eines Layen' geschrieben? Ich bitte Dich um Deines Herzens willen, sag mirs" (nach Müller/Stötzer, Lenz im Urteil dreier Jahrhunderte, Bern 1995, Band 1, S. 178). - Auf dem Vorsatz der handschriftl. Eintrag 'Dav. Christohph Schobingen, M. D. Ph. P.' Es handelt sich dabei um David Christoph Schobinger aus St. Gallen, der sich im Mai 1745 unter dem Namen 'Schobinguer' in Göttingen als Medizinstudent einschrieb und Schüler Albrecht von Hallers wurde. Später praktizierte er in St. Gallen. Vorderes Vorsatzblatt mit gelöschtem Stempel der Bibliothek des 'Seraph. Liebeswerks Solothurn'. Durchgehend nicht störend gebräunt und fleckig. Insgesamt ein durchaus ordentliches und vor allem authentisches Exemplar. - Zur Seltenheit: Dieses Werk ist seit über 80 Jahren nicht im deutschsprachigen Auktionshandel nachzuweisen. Die Mannheimer Lenz-Forschungsstelle weist drei Exemplare in Bibliotheken nach: Bibl. des Evangel. Stifts in Tübingen, Goethe-Museum Düsseldorf und Sammlung Otto Schäfer in Schweinfurt. Letzteres wurde 1979 aus dem Kaldewey-Katalog 51, Nr 305 erworben ('Lese-Kabinett 12', für DM 12.000,-), dort mit dem Hinweis: "Eventuell das einzige erhaltene Exemplar. Jedenfalls konnten die Herausgeber der kritischen Lenz-Ausgabe von 1966 ... keines Exemplares habhaft werden und folgten dem Text der Blei'schen Ausgabe von 1910". Ein viertes Exemplar in der Berliner Staatsbibliothek, das Grundlage für die Autopsie von Schulte-Strahaus war, ist Kriegsverlust. - Goed. IV 1, 784, 42. Schulte-Strathaus 8.

        Mémoire sur les moyens de corriger les malfaiteurs et fainéans à leur propre avantage et de les rendre utiles à l'Etat, Proposé à l'Assemblée des Députés par le Vicomte Vilain XIIII & présenté aux Corps & Administrations des Etats de Flandres au mois de Janvier 1775.

      - Gand, Pierre de Goesin, s.d. (1775). In-4, demi-veau tabac moderne à coins, dos à nerfs fleuronnés, couverture papier marbré d’origine conservée, (6), 268 p., texte imprimé dans un encadrement rocaille, vignette de titre aux armoiries de la ville de Gand, bandeaux et culs-de-lampe, 4 doubles planches gravées par Bertaud de plans et vues des façades. Très rare édition originale de cet ouvrage pionnier dans l’histoire de la réforme pénitentiaire, cité par M. Foucault dans ‘Surveiller et punir’ (p. 124-125). Edité en vue d’être présenté aux Etats de Flandre, ce mémoire - "le premier jalon du grand système pénitentiaire" - est à l’origine de l’une des toutes premières institutions "modèles" de détention, sur un fondement alors révolutionnaire : la réhabilitation des condamnés par le travail. Il devait constituer une source d’inspiration directe pour plusieurs générations de réformateurs jusqu’au XXe siècle, en Europe et en Amérique. "La maison de force de Gand créée en 1775 par le vicomte J.-J.-P. Vilain XIIII était considérée comme La prison modèle, pour sa classification des détenus et son organisation industrielle. Son fondateur avait cherché à l'insérer dans l'économie régionale, de telle sorte que les délinquants puissent retrouver à leur libération des travaux semblables à ceux qu'ils avaient pratiqués pendant leur détention" (Cf. J.-G. Petit, ‘Les débuts de la manufacture carcérale’, Annales de Bretagne, 1990, vol. 97, n°97-3, p. 329-342). Bourgmestre de Gand, puis grand Bailly, et conseiller d’Etat, le vicomte Jean Jacques Philippe Vilain IIII (1712-1777) était issu d’une ancienne famille belge. Vignette de titre aux armoiries de la ville de Gand. (Conlon, 'Siècle des Lumières', 75:1743. J.-G. Petit,' Ces peines obscures', p. 163. Vander Haeghen, 'Bibliographie Gantoise', n°4551).

        PROPOSICIÓN DE NUEVA RUTA COMERCIAL ENTRE ESPAÑA Y RÍO DE LA PLATA Y ACLARACIONES A LOS REPAROS PUESTOS POR LA JUNTA DE CÁDIZ.]

      S.l.n.a. (c. 1775 - ). 31 cm. Dos partes: (I) [Propuesta de nueva ruta comercial.] 28 h., sin paginar. (II) [Aclaraciones a los reparos puestos por la Junta de Cádiz.] 70 h., sin paginar. Dos partes enc. en un vol. en pergamino, lomo despegado, restos de cierres. Cerco de antigua humedad en margen interno, sin afectar a la lectura. Interesantísimo documento que propone una nueva ruta comercial entre España y el Río de la Plata. Atendiendo a la elevada mortalidad de españoles a la llegada de galeones a Portobelo (hasta entonces destino final de la ruta) y la despoblación parcial del Perú y España por causa de dichas muertes, se propone, para mayor opulencia del erario real y teniendo en cuenta la dilatada experiencia peruana de quien realiza la propuesta -al que no hemos logrado identificar- el establecimiento de la ruta de galeones por la vía de Buenos Aires. Se lograría así una mayor brevedad del viaje que por la vía de Cartagena y Portobelo, se poblarían las principales provincias peruanas y se evitaría una navegación que se califica de dilatada, peligrosa y costosa. Se manifiesta abiertamente la conveniencia de Buenos Aires ante las "esterilidades" de Cartagena y Portobelo, llamado comúnmente "sepultura de españoles". El autor de estas páginas admite cierta problemática en relación a la poca agua del Río de la Plata para la entrada y salida de galeones, aunque considera que "no es ynsuperable este incombeniente". Dice asimismo que sería conveniente que los navíos o galeones para esta navegación se fabricasen a propósito, para lo cual dice haber contactado con los maestros cántabros, que no advierten problemas significativos. Así pues, solicita al rey -probablemente Carlos III- se digne mandar fabricar seis galeones para este fin y de cuatro a seis embarcaciones menores. Ofrece a continuación detalles de la ruta (distancias, escalas, seguridad), se extiende sobre las grandezas de Potosí y territorio adyacente y se centra en los siguientes apartados: comecio que se propone des de Lima a Buenos Aires; comercio que se hace desde Lima a Portobelo; comercio actual desde la Sierra a Lima y Portobelo; y comercio que se propone de la Sierra a Buenos Aires. El autor no deja ningún cabo sin atar, pues analiza todos los supuestos, tanto de la ruta en sí como de la administración, las relaciones con los administradores locales, los gastos, etc. Pese a ello, y sabiendo hoy que era una apuesta ganadora -el comercio activo entre España y el Río de la Plata floreció entre los años 1778-1810- parece ser que la Junta de Cádiz puso numerosos reparos a los cuales el autor no pudo responder adecuadamente. Por ello, en la segunda parte los analiza pormenorizadamente y responde, entre otros, a la queja de que la navegación de Cádiz a Buenos Aires es muy larga; a la de que la mayor parte del buque se ocuparía con víveres y cables; a la de que la entrada de los navíos en el río y la subida al amarradero es muy peligrosa; a la de la falta de resguardo de los navíos en el Río de la Plata; a la de los perjuicios que afectarán a los comerciantes por ser tan grande la distancia entre Buenos Aires y Potosí y de allí a Lima, etc. Las explicaciones ofrecidas son sensatas y rotundas: la propuesta es segura y rentable, se evitan riesgos de mar, se poblarán nuevos territorios, los gastos de conducción de ropas y géneros bajarán sensiblemente, los comerciantes de las provincias de la Sierra bajarán con sus caudales a la feria de Buenos Aires sin necesidad de fiarlos a terceros, etc. comercio, españa-américa, colonias, navegación, río de la plata, siglo XVIII, carlos III, rutas comerciales, buenos aires, argentina, perú Indústria, comerç i negocis Libros antiguos anteriores a 1830 Manuscritos español

      Madrid, en la Imprenta de Don Antonio Perez de Soto, 1775. - in-4. 9ff. 272pp. XVII. Plein vélin du temps (taches et petit accroc sur le plat supérieur). Edition Originale. Francisco Cañes (mort en 1775) était un missionnaire espagnol originaire de Valencia, qui résida pendant seize ans à Damas (Syrie) où il enseignait dans un collège. Cet ouvrage constitue apparemment la première grammaire arabe imprimée en langue espagnole avec des caractères arabes; dans sa préface, l'auteur rappelle notamment que l'ouvrage de Pedro de Alcalá, imprimé en 1505, était en caractères latins. "Presento pues al público esta gramática arabe, deseoso de contribuír por mi parte á que se pueda aprender con facilidad una lengua no ruda, bárbara, é inutil, y que algunos por ignorancia desprecian; sino elegante, erudita, y utilisima , como los hombres doctos reconocen: á vista de lo mucho que se escribe en ella, y de las numerosas naciones que la hablan en Asia, Africa y parte de Europa". Après avoir exposé les règles de la grammaire arabe, l'ouvrage propose un dictionnaire rangé par thèmes et, avec une pagination séparée, une version arabe de la Doctrine Chrétienne que les missionnaires devaient apprendre par cœur.

        A MAP OF PENNSYLVANIA EXHIBITING NOT ONLY THE IMPROVED PARTS OF THAT PROVINCE, BUT ALSO ITS EXTENSIVE FRONTIERS: LAID FROM ACTUAL SURVEYS, AND CHIEFLY FROM THE LATE MAP OF W. SCULL, PUBLISHED IN 1770.

      London: Printed for Robert Sayer & J. Bennett, . 1775 - 28 1/2 x 54 3/4 inches, outlined in period color, backed on canvas. Small ink stamp near title, a few small worm holes expertly repaired. Very good. Archivally matted, protected with mylar sheet. A large and impressive map of the colony of Pennsylvania, published just a few months after the battle of Lexington and Concord, and drawing heavily from the landmark map executed by William Scull in 1770. Scull's original map is exceedingly rare, and noteworthy for showing the extensive Pennsylvania frontier, including western roads, paths, forts and other buildings, and the newly executed Mason-Dixon line. In the present map, printed for Sayer and Bennett, Scull's map is revised and improved, with clearer topographical delineations and including latitude and longitude markers. These improvements were likely added to aid British troops fighting in North America. Sayer and Bennett's map appears in several contemporary atlases, including Faden's THE NORTH AMERICAN ATLAS and Jefferys' THE AMERICAN ATLAS, both issued in 1776. Sayer and Bennett took over the Jefferys firm after Thomas Jefferys' death in 1771, and were among the most important British map publishers of their day. Not in Rumsey. PHILLIPS MAPS, p.674.

        The Waterfall of Niagara . La Cascade de Niagara .

      R. Sayer, [London 1775 - Engraving, on laid paper, full period hand colouring. Title and text in English and French. Early issue of a rare engraving of Niagara Falls, here with full period hand colouring. Based upon Hennepin's view, as well as the inset of Niagara Falls which appeared on the famed Popple map, this print was published by Robert Sayer and is listed in his 1775 catalogue, though was likely for sale at an earlier date (perhaps as early as 1751). This version of the print would become the basis for other 18th century depictions of the falls. A later edition of this view would be published by Laurie and Whittle, with their imprint, in 1794.

He was captured in 1777 by Continental Army troops commanded by Lt. Col. Marinus Willett, but escaped after a few months. He was probably the most hated Loyalist in America, amongst other things, because he commanded the Loyalist raiding party (which included Joseph Brant, a Mohawk chief) that attacked Cherry Valley on November 11, 1778 and the massacre after the battle. Ironically, it was Lt. Col. Willett, who, on October 30, 1781, came across Butler again while pursuing Major John Ross' forces after the Battle of Johnstown. Unfortunately for Col. John Butler, his son Walter was killed with a musket ball to his head, fired randomly from across the river. News of this came to the inhabitants around the same time Cornwallis' surrender was reported, but the Whig inhabitants seemed more pleased with the news of Butler's demise. However, it is said, the news of his death caused great rejoicing in New York's Mohawk Valley.
