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]

BOLINGBROKE, HENRY ST. JOHN, 1st VISCOUNT.
London: Printed for T.Davies, Bookseller to the Royal Academy. 8vo. 5.25 x 8.25 inches. xxxvi + 243 pp. [4] A8, a8, B-Q8, R2. Illustrated with one plate, engraving of author, serving as frontispiece. Contemporary calf; spine divided into compartments by raised bands and gilt rules with red morocco label, gilt. Extremities worn but overall a fine copy. Henry St. John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke (1678-1751) played a prominent role in English politics in the turbulent period of the early eighteenth century, which saw the end of the Stuart line and the accession of the House of Hanover. Mercurial in temperament, he was a man of great learning and a notable orator, suffering a 'lifelong conflict: a struggle between his reason and his passions'. A landowning Tory who accepted the settlement of 1688, he held high office as Secretary at War (supporting Marlborough's campaigns) and later as Secretary of State, but fell out of favour after the death of Queen Anne in 1714 and fled to France to join James Stewart, the Old Pretender. He abandoned the Jacobite cause following the failure of 1715 and did not return to England for another ten years, after he had received a full legal pardon. These three writings of the 1730s are a product of his continued opposition to the Whig ministry dominated by Walpole and are also based on his study of history and philosophy in exile. This edition reprints three of Bolingbroke's works. He addressed his 'Letter on the Spirit of Patriotism' to Lord Cornbury in 1736 as a plea to all honest politicians to abandon their Whig or Tory principles and unite aga … [Click Below for Full Description]

[FLIP BOOK - FRENCH].
Cf. Gumuchian 3843-3846, esp. 3843; KVK & WorldCat (1 copy of similar flip book); Stafford & Terpak, Devices of wonder, pp. 252-255. Extremely rare engraved conjuror's "magic book", also known as a flip book or blow book, displaying eight different series of pages, namely seven series of hand-coloured engravings plus a series of blank pages. Remarkably, it is here preserved with the single page explaining how to use the book tipped onto the first (blank) page and in its original wrappers as published. The fore-edge has tabs that vary from 1/5 to 4/5 of the length, sometimes from the head and sometimes from the foot, so that flipping through the book from back to front you can chose which series of engravings will appear by shifting your thumb between the five positions from head to foot with the book rightside up or upside down. The seven series of coloured engravings show playing cards, mother superiors, flowers, soldiers, abbots, priests and harlequins. So if you wish to perform a conjuring trick you can first flip through the book so that only the blank leaves appear and the audience thinks the book is blank. You can then tap it with a wand, blow on it or carry out some other magical action and flip through again so the a series of flowers magically appears in what seemed to be a blank book. You can then continue to magically change it to show each of the other series in turn. On 4 pages the caption has been shaved. The fore-edge tabs of the first few and last few leaves are slightly tattered, the black pips on the cards occasionally show through on the other side of the … [Click Below for Full Description]
