Shakespeare Mr. William
Thomas Evans, 1775. A fine and very early printing of Shakespeare's Poems. A Large Copy. With a charming vignette portrait of Shakespeare on the title-page from an engraving by Alexander Bannerman. Small 8vo, in handsome full chocolate crushed morocco, the spine with gilt chain flat bands creating compartments with central gilt tooled ornaments, one compartment gilt lettered, board edges gilt hatched, in a slipcase of complimentary brown cloth-covered boards with matching morocco tips. viii, 250pp. A fine copy, the text especially clean and fresh, the 20th century binding pristine and as new, the slipcase fine as well. SCARCE AND A VERY ATTRACTIVE EDITION OF SHAKESPEARE'S POEMS, VERY POSSIBLY A LARGE PAPER COPY. According to Jaggard, "a large paper copy (the only one recorded), measuring 7-1/8 by 4-1/2 in., is in the writer's collection." Our copy measures 7 x 4-1/2 inches and might perhaps qualify as a large-paper copy.) The book is printed in the same style as Capell's 1767-6 issue of the Works, and probably intended to be supplementary to it. The arrangement follows that of the 1640 edition, but in this case the index now names every poem. Jaggard speculates that the editor might have been E. Capell. Shakespeare's first published works were poems, starting with Venus and Adonis in 1593. A tragic-comedy of Venus, her unrequited love for Adonis, and Adonis's tragic death while hunting a boar. In the Rape of Lucrece, Shakespeare's second published work, the rape of a Roman noblewoman leads to suicide and the downfall of the Tarquin kings of Rome.

Bonne Rigobert (1727 - 1795) Paris
Artist: Bonne Rigobert ca ; issued in: Paris; date: ca1775. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 23 x 34; - description: Map shows the northpart of Soth America with Venezuela, Guyana, Surinam, French Guyana and Columbia; - vita of the artist: Rigobert Bonne (1727?1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century.In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne?s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses.While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal.

SCRAP ALBUM]. VISSCHER, J. (compiler or recipient).
, . . Piet J. Buijnsters, "Het Nederlandse 'scrapbook' 1775-1900", in: Antiek XXXI, pp. 50-58, at p. 52 ; WorldCat (2 albums of Engelbrecht's "Aufschneidebilder",); cf. B.M. Stafford & F. Terpak, Devices of wonder, p. 336. A carefully and neatly assembled scrap album containing about 330 coloured, engraved images, each carefully cut out of a print. The images show people (including costume figures, caricatures and oriental figures), boats and ships, flowers, architectural views (including garden views, fountains and sculptures), theatre prints, birds, insects, Aesop illustrations and other items. They include a large image of a man on a ladder picking fruit from a tree, and a whaling scene with a man harpooning a spouting whale. The heart-shaped label with the name J. Visscher and date 28 January 1777, suggests that the album was assembled for Visscher's betrothal or marriage on that date. Buijnsters notes that 18th-century scrapbooks such as the present are very rare. The compilation of a scrapbook became a popular pastime, especially for young ladies, in the 19th century.Nearly all of the clippings come from Engelbrecht in Augsburg and Johann Christoph Schmidhammer in Nürnberg. Martin Engelbrecht (1684-1756) was an Augsburg engraver and print publisher. In 1719, 1729 and 1739 he received an imperial privilege for "illuminierte Lackier- und Ausschneidebilder" (coloured varnished images and cut-out images). These were intended to be cut out for constructing peep shows or miniature theatres as well as for pasting in scrap albums.

FIRST EDITION. 4°, splendid contemporary Portuguese binding of crimson sheep (light wear at corners, head and foot of spine; short splits in joints near head of spine), spine richly gilt with raised bands in six compartments, richly gilt roll-tooled border on each cover, edges of covers gilt tooled, all text-block edges gilt. Woodcut vignette and initial. Occasional slight marginal soiling. Overall in fine condition. Bookplates of Victor Avila-Perez and Fernando Alves Barata. 123 pp., (1, 1 blank ll.). *** FIRST EDITION. "A very important book, and very rare indeed" (Borba de Moraes), containing many poems (all unsigned) written in 1775 in honor of the dedication of the statue of D. José I in Lisbon's Praça do Comércio. These are preceded by a description of the dedication ceremonies (pp. 3-74). Borba de Moraes mentions a variant in which the pagination is not continuous throughout the volume. Five of the odes and six sonnets are generally acknowledged to be the work of Domingos Caldas Barbosa, one of the finest Brazilian poets of the colonial period. These poems also appeared (again unsigned) in the undated, 27-page Collecção de poesias feitas na feliz inauguração da Estatua Equestre, which is itself a rare work. Of these 11 poems Borba knew of no later reprints, separately or in anthologies. Whether the Narração or the Collecção came first is not clear: the type is set in very similar style in both, but there are variations in wording, and the order in which the poems appear differs considerably.

1775. Antique print, titled: 'Le Medecin Clair-Voyant', ('The clairvoyant / clear seeing doctor') Scene in a medical laboratory, with various instruments and apparatus strewn about. There are numerous bottles on a table, an open book in the foreground, and a fish hanging from the ceiling. On the left an assistant mixes medicine with a mortar and pestle. At the centre of the scene is seated an old bearded physician (who is supposedly clairvoyant) - he points at the heart of a young female patient who stands in front of him. Etching/engraving on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This original antique master print was published by Helman in France in 1775. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text. These can both be prints made by old masters (artists) or prints made by others (artists, engravers, etchers) after old masters.Artists and Engravers: Made by Helman after Le Prince. Isidore-Stanislas Helman (1743-1806/1809), was a French draughtsman, engraver and printseller. He was born in Lille in 1743 where he received his early artistic training. His death date is uncertain. He died in Paris in either 1806 or in 1809. In Paris he studied with Jacques-Philippe Le Bas (1707-1783), a draughtsman, engraver and etcher, and was one of his finest pupils. Helman was known especially for his engravings of genre scenes.Jean Baptist Le Prince (1734-1781) came from Metz and studied with Boucher in Paris. He stayed in St. Ptersburg between 1758 and 1763. After returning to France he etched many Russian … [Click Below for Full Description]
