Hamburg -
Um 1775. Ca. 23,0 x 40,0 cm. Teils etwas berieben, Farbe etwas abgeblättert, besonders im Rand, die Rückseite mit Papierresten. Im Vordergrund die Binnenalster mit Booten und Schuten, dahinter der Jungfernstieg, links die St. Nikolaikirche, rechts die St. Michaeliskirche. Diese Arbeit des von 1772 bis 1790 in Hamburg tätigen dänischen Künstlers ist - wie alle seine Arbeiten - in einem auffallenden Querformat. Besonders merkwürdig ist die Technik des Malers, der etwas zwei Drittel der Bildfläche mit Himmel bedeckt, während die eigentliche Ansicht sich auf den unteren Bildrand beschränkt. Seine Ansichten zeichnen sich weniger durch künstlerische Qualität als durch außerordentliche topographische Treue aus. Grolau bediente sich bei der Bildaufnahme geschickt der mechanischen Hilfsmittel seiner Zeit, besonders der Camera Obscura. Selten, wie alle Arbeiten Grolaus.

BASAN, FRANÇOIS
"Village pres d'Anvers"? Ets vervaardigd door landschapsetser en -schilder Franz Edmund Weirotter, uitgegeven door Fran?ois Basan te Parijs in 1775. Afm. (afb.) 23,7 x 36,7 cm. Weirotter (1733-1771) krijgt zijn opleiding in Innsbruck, Wenen, Regensburg, Mainz en uiteindelijk in Parijs waar hij in 1759 de Duitse graveur Johann Georg Wille tegenkomt. Bij Wille, die zeer succesvol is in Frankrijk, leert Weirotter graveren. In zijn vroege jaren volgt hij de uit Itali? afkomstige pseudo Hollandse stijl. Hij blijft in Parijs tot 1763, vanwaar hij naar Rome vertrekt. In 1765 keert hij weer terug naar Parijs, om vervolgens in 1767 in Wenen tekenleraar te worden aan de Academie. Daar overlijdt hij aan een oogkwaal op 41 jarige leeftijd. Ondanks zijn korte leven liet hij een imposant oeuvre van 288 etsen na. Vrijwel allemaal landschapsvoorstellingen. Kort na zijn dood worden 218 van zijn etsplaten gekocht door de Parijse uitgever Basan & Poignant, die in 1775 de platen in een kleine oplage herdrukt. Prijs: Euro625,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

Amsterdam: J.H. Schneider, 1775. Original colour. 485 x 940mm. Binding folds flattened as usual.

As this section was not as popular as the bird volumes it is believed that only 250 copies of this edition were printed.

Joseph II., röm.-dt. Kaiser (1741-1790)
O. O. Zusammen (2? +2? =) 5? SS. auf 4 (= 2 Doppel-)Blatt. Kl.-8vo. Sehr ausführliche und persönliche Schreiben an eine Gräfin, möglicherweise Maria Christina, Gräfin Kinsky, geb. Prinzessin Liechtenstein, über die Wahl der Schule für ihren Sohn, mit der Empfehlung Kaiser Josephs für das Theresianum ("[...] au sujet du college Theresien, et de l'academie de Savoye, mais tout mes recherches de comparaison onts etes avantguues premier [...]", [23. IX. 1775]), und über die bevorstehende Reise seines Bruders Leopold (später Kaiser Leopold II.) und seiner Schwester Maria Christine und ihres Mannes Albert (Herzog von Sachsen-Teschen) nach Italien ([24. IX. 1775]). Hier handelt es sich um eine ausgedehnte Rundreise durch Italien (1776) auf der Herzog Albert und Marie Christine zahlreiche hervorragende Kunstschätze erwarben. - Zwei in vorliegenden Schreiben enthaltene Informationen bieten Anhaltspunkte für eine mögliche Identifizierung der Adressatin. Die Erwähnung der Mutter der ungenannten Gräfin ("la Princess votre Mere") und der Hinweis auf das Theresianum im Zusammenhang mit der Datierung des Briefes lassen es wahrscheinlich erscheinen, daß es sich hier um Gräfin Maria Christina Kinsky, geb. Prinzessin Liechtenstein (1741-1819) handelt, da ihr Sohn Graf Karl Kinsky (später FML, 1766-1831) von 1776 bis 1781 als Zögling des Theresianums erwähnt ist und ihre Mutter als Mitglied des Hauses Liechtenstein dem Fürstenstand angehöre, was für die Mütter der anderen in den Jahren 1775 bzw. 1776 aufgenommenen Zöglinge nicht zutraf.

[Bunker Hill]
[Boston: Printed by John Howe, 1775. Broadside, 14 x 8 3/4 inches. Light toning, slight mat burn, an occasional fox mark. About very good. A broadside describing the action and praising the British victory at the Battle of Bunker Hill, printed by Loyalists in Boston a week after the battle. One week after the battle, this document - which accurately describes the action - was printed and circulated by John Howe, the same Loyalist printer who published Gen. Gage's account of the events of April 19, 1775. The broadside relates a casualty count that has been heavily embroidered by the British, making this a tidy piece of propaganda to emphasize the fierce bravery and courage of the British forces: "The loss they [the Americans] sustained, must have been considerable, from the vast numbers they were seen to carry off during the action, exclusive of what they suffered from the shipping. About a hundred were buried the day after, and thirty found wounded on the field, some of which are since dead. About 170 of the King's troops were killed, and since dead of their wounds; and a great many were wounded." According to Boatner, American strength was about 3,000, with an estimated 140 dead and 601 wounded. British strength was about 2,500, and they lost about 45% of their troops; of the British officer casualties in the twenty battles fought during the Revolution, one-eighth were killed and one sixth wounded at the Battle of Bunker Hill. The broadside concludes: "This action has shown the bravery of the King's troops, who under every disadvantage, gained a compleat victory over … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hartford: Printed by Ebenezer Watson, near the Great Bridge, 1775. vii, [1 blank], [9]-54 54pp. Untrimmed, stitched [loosened], generously margined. Light dust and fox, Very Good. "This is the ninth, and last, of the Reports of the Indian Charity School, established by Mr. Wheelock. It was originally termed the Moors Charity School, commencing in 1754, at Lebanon, and in 1771 transferred to Hanover, where it formed the germ of the institution, known as Dartmouth College. Among the first pupils came young Brant, the Mohawk warrior, who afterwards desolated the Wyoming Valley, and sat beside the Mohegan Indian, Samson Occum, who preached the gospel of peace to the same bloody savages. The fruits of the noble and disinterested labors of Mr. Wheelock, were visible among the aborigines for many years after the date of this report. At one time twenty-five Indians were receiving instruction in his school. Honored be the name of Eleazer Wheelock during all time, as one of the wisest and noblest friends of the red man" [Field]. "Wheelock, a graduate from Yale in 1733, was pastor of the Second (North) Society in Lebanon, and a popular preacher during the Great Awakening. He began the Charity School (first called More's Charity School, after Col. Joshua More, who contributed a house and school-house) in 1754, and by 1765 had some forty-six pupils, all supported by charity. In 1769 Wheelock was given a charter to establish Dartmouth College, which he did in 1770, and became its first president" [Streeter Sale].

Marat étudia d'abord la médecine et s'y fit recevoir médecin des gardes du corps du Comte d'Artois. Il traita également tour à tour la philosophie, la physique, l'économie politique, la politique, le roman. Marat fit partie des sept membres de la commission signatures de la proclamation qui provoqua les assassinats dans les prisons. Il préconisait le massacre de 270 000 partisans de l'ancien régime et de réduire au quart le nombre des membres de la convention. Il croyait enrichir les pauvres en tuant et spoliant les riches, une fausse logique qui le conduisit à un affreux système d'assassinat.

Unger, Wilhelm.
Wilhelm Unger (1775 Kirchlothheim - 1855 Neustrelitz) war ein Sohn des Schulmeisters und Organisten Johannes Unger und seiner Frau Luise, geb. Tischbein. Er studierte bei seinem Onkel Johann Heinrich Tischbein (d. J.) an der Kunstakademie Kassel und war vornehmlich als Kupferstecher tätig. 1795 erfolgte seine Berufung zum Hofmaler des Fürsten Friedrich von Waldeck in Arolsen. Dieser schickte ihn zur weiteren Ausbildung nach Paris, wo er 1795 bis 1798 beim Miniaturmaler Jean-Baptiste Isabey lernte. 1799 bis 1801 arbeitete Unger als Lehrer an der von seinem Onkel Wilhelm Tischbein in Göttingen gegründeten Zeichenakademie für Damen. Von 1801 bis 1806 war er mit Wilhelm Tischbein in Hamburg. Von November 1806 bis Ende 1815 war er erneut in Paris. Er wurde 1816/17 Lehrer für Miniaturmalerei an der Kunstakademie Kassel und 1817 Hofmaler in Neustrelitz bei seiner ehemaligen Kasseler Schülerin Marie von Hessen-Kassel, nun Großherzogin von Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Im März 1820 wurde Unger zum Professor an der Kunstakademie Kassel ernannt. Das schöne Kinderbildnis zeigt seinen Enkel, der ebenfalls den Namen Wilhelm hatte. Abgesehen von wenigen Fliegen-Flecken, guter Zustand. Der schlichte Rahmen aus der Zeit um 1900 mit nur geringen Alterungsspuren. Sprache: Deutsch 2500 gr.

BETSKOI (BETZKY), Ivan Ivanovich; LE CLERC, Nicolas-Gabriel.
Amsterdam: Marc-Michel Rey, 1775. Book. Good+. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 2 volumes bound in one, imperial octavo (210 x 265mm). [4], 160, [2]; 160pp. First French edition, edited by Diderot, complete with all 5 engraved plates (three in the text and two frontispiece), beautiful 65 vignettes, 3 folding plates and 4 folding printed tables. Full calf leather, five raised bands, spine gilt to compartments, gilt title, marbled endpapers, all edges in red. The spine of the leather binding is slightly damaged, minor rubbing on edges and on covers. The first pages have some moisture damage (unobtrusive). The three engravings have been amateurishly restored. No notes and/or tears (apart from aforementioned restorations). Gently creasing on some pages. The writer was the great reformer who, commissioned by the enlightened czarina Catherine II, made education accessible for all children, both boys and girls. In association with Diderot, he presented the French translation of this important book in Amsterdam. Diderot did this work anonymously, but could not resist the temptation to make his contribution visible ("Addition de l'Editeur, M.D******", as can be read on page 157 in the second part). Scarce book and has been extremely influential. .

A very good and attractive set in clean condition, bound in original calf with gilt decorated rules to covers, and gilt decoration to spine panels, with six compartments and red and black labels. § Vols I and II second edition (1775), and Vol III only edition (1796). 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.

Giuseppe VASI (Corleone, 27 Agosto 1710 - Roma, 16 Aprile 1782)
Acquaforte e bulino, 1775. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, minimi difetti, per il resto in buone condizioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnator … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHAUCER, GEOFFREY. (BINDINGS - CHAMBOLLE-DURU)
London: T. Payne, 1775-78. First Printing of this Edition. This handsomely bound set represents an important 18th century edition of Chaucer's most well-known work, considered in its day to be "'the best-edited English Classic that ever has appeared.'" (DNB, quoting the "Gentleman's Magazine") According to the preface, our editor, Thomas Tyrwhitt (1730-86), aimed to "give the text of The Canterbury Tales as correct as the Mss. within the reach of the Editor would enable him to make it. . . . The Editor therefore has proceeded as if his author had never been published before." This presents a departure from the scholarship of earlier editions, and according to the DNB, Tyrwhitt "significantly advanced the understanding and appreciation of Chaucer" in this era. His glossary and notes to this edition also presented a major contribution in terms of investigating and providing context to the language and style in which Chaucer wrote. Our binder, the elder Chambolle, was a rough contemporary of, and certainly the equal in technique to, binders like Trautz, Marius Michel père, Lortic, and Cuzin. He served his apprenticeship under Hippolyte Duru, and later formed a partnership with him. Chambolle's son continued the business when his father retired in 1898, and although the firm "showed a cautious recognition of the . . . preoccupation with Art Nouveau," classical work was always the mainstay of the Chambolle bindery. (Duncan & De Bartha). 195 x 120 mm. (7 3/4 x 4 1/4"). Five volumes. Edited by Thomas Tyrwhitt. First Printing of this Edition. VERY ATTRACTIVE 19TH CENTURY R … [Click Below for Full Description]

Chez Pierre François Didot jeune, A Londres et se trouve à Paris, 1775. 4 vol. in-4 de (4)-621 pp. ; (2)- [622] à 976-160 pp. et [193]-52-160 pp. ; (4)-193 pl. ; (4)-[193] à 392 pl., veau havane marbré, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin blond, double filet d'encadrement sur les plats, filet doré sur les coupes, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Très bel exemplaire de ce magistral ouvrage orné d'un beau frontispice allégorique et de 392 gravures en taille douce. Fusée-Aublet (1720-1778) débuta sa formation de botaniste chez un apothicaire de Grenade, à Montpellier en suivant les cours de Boissier de Sauvages, puis à Paris ceux du jardin du roi. En 1752, sur proposition du Ministre de la marine la Compagnie française des Indes orientales, l'envoya comme apothicaire compositeur afin d?établir une pharmacie et un jardin botanique à l?Île Maurice où il demeurera neuf ans. Ami de Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Fusée-Aublet ne cessa de dénoncer la condition des noirs esclaves et se fit de nombreux ennemis dans l'île. Dés son retour en France, il fut envoyé en tant qu?apothicaire botaniste du roi à Cayenne. En 2 ans, dans ce pays pratiquement inexploré Fusée-Aublet constitua un herbier considérable qu'ii apporta à Paris en 1765 ; il fit vérifier par Bernard de Jussieu ses descriptions et ses dessins avant de les faire graver. Fusée-Aublet est considéré comme père de l'ethnobotanique, car ses descriptions des plantes des "Isles" ont la particularité de toujours prendre en compte l'étroite relation qui existaient entre ces plantes et les populations locales qui … [Click Below for Full Description]
