Chapman påbörjade teoretiska studier i Stockholm och fortsatte sin utbildning i London, där han blev lärjunge till den för yt- och volymberäkningar av kurvformiga kroppar kände professorn Thomas Simpson 1750. Efter sammanlagt sju års studier i England, Frankrike och Nederländerna återvände Chapman till Sverige 1757.

WARTON, THOMAS
J. Dodsley [et al.], 1775. 3 volumes, 4to, full contemporary diced calf, perfunctorily rebacked, gilt paneled spines, red morocco labels; very good, sound set. To volume 3 is prefixed a third dissertation on the Gesta Romanorum. Lowndes, p. 2847, calls the work "a most curious, valuable, and interesting literary history," and reports the existence of a fourth volume (which consisted of a Fragment and a general index) published in 1806. But see Rothschild 2525-2527 where it is inferred that volume IV never got beyond proof sheets, and DNB emphatically states that the fourth volume "never appeared." This first volume is dated 1775 and is a later issue of it (it first appeared with a 1774 date); the second and third volumes are first editions. In spite of its defects and the fate the work suffered at the hands of contemporary critics, the diligent scholar will quickly discover that "nowhere else has he at his command so well furnished an armory of facts and dates about obscure writers; while for the student of sixteenth century literature, while Warton's results have been at many points developed, but have not as a whole been superceded. His style is unaffected and invariably clear. He never forgot that he was the historian and not the critic of the literature of which he treated. He handled with due precision the bibliographical side of his subject, and extended equal thoroughness of investigation to every variety of literary effort. No literary history discloses more comprehensive learning in classical and foreign literature, as well as in that of Great Britain" (DNB). [Attr … [Click Below for Full Description]

DEBATES OF PARLIAMENT)
357, [1]pp. 8vo, handsomely rebound in new 1/2 calf and marbled boards, red morocco label; (some scattered foxing, otherwise internally very good). London: J. Almon, 1775. This volume contains important opinions and debates on the Boston Tea Party and Parliament's legislative response: The Coercive Acts. Pages 77-116 are on the reaction to the Boston Tea Party and the first Coercive Act which was the Boston Port Bill. This act closed the port of Boston to all imports and exports. Bostonians had less essential imported goods This increased anti-Parliament sentiment and furthered the idea of American Independence from Great Britain. Pages 116-251 are the debates on the second Coercive Act which was the Massachusetts Government Act. This act concentrated more executive authority with the Crown and the Royal Governor of Massachusetts. Members of the provincial council and many legal officials, including the attorney general, were no longer chosen by Massachusetts officials. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[Continental Congress]:
Philadelphia, Printed: New-York, Re-printed, and sold by H. Gaine, 1775.. iv,140pp. Antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, raised bands, gilt leather label. Contemporary ownership signatures of John Hotchkiss on titlepage and of Samuel Nott on verso of titlepage. Titlepage with loss to outer corners, but with no loss of text. Light, scattered foxing. Final text leaf with paper loss in lower inner corner, affecting a few words of text. Very good. The journals of the second Continental Congress, covering its activities from convening on May 10, 1775 through adjournment on Sept. 5, 1775. The activities of that summer, against the background of open conflict in Massachusetts, are among the most dramatic of the Revolutionary era. Included are reports concerning Lexington-Concord, the address to the inhabitants of Canada inviting them to join the other thirteen colonies, numerous military matters, the Declaration of the Causes and Necessity for Taking Up Arms, the Olive Branch Petition, the American negotiations with the Six Nations, and other crucial material. Essentially this volume is the very crux of the beginning of the Revolution, convening a few weeks after open warfare had begun, and recording the essential shift in attitude in the Congress from conciliation to revolution. These journals, like those of the first Congress, were printed in very limited quantities and are quite rare. This New York edition is especially rare, located by NAIP in only five copies.

The Lucknow School
India, 1775. A SPLENDID EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY PAINTING FROM THE LUCKNOW SCHOOL Inscribed in Urdu: upper right and center Paper size: 11" x 18" Pen and Ink with bodycolor, fixative Provenance: Claude Martin (1735-1800), Lucknow Lucknow, India circa 1775-1785 By the late 18th century, many Mughal-trained painters in India were looking to the emerging British ruling class for patronage. The products of the Lucknow School, based in Lucknow, India, were often albums of flora, fauna, and other exotic sights of India, made to be taken back to Britain. Of the varied subjects, bird studies such as this depiction of Quail from the Lucknow school, may be deemed a classic type. Paintings of birds, animals, and flowers had been an important genre in Indian art since the time of the Mughal emperor Jahangir (1605-27), and the continuation of such subjects under British patronage was a natural extension of that established tradition, although the results were often quite different stylistically. In these paintings, the birds stand upright in a receding landscape of considerably reduced scale. The dramatic contrast in size between the bird and the vista it dominates gives the composition a distinctively idiosyncratic mood. In the second half of the 18th century, the English governing elite of the East India Company started commissioning Indian artists to paint subjects of interest to them. The subjects related to the splendid life style of the foreigners in India, their houses and possessions, botanical and Zoological studies, and Indians in their typical dresses pursuing their crafts and prof … [Click Below for Full Description]

Seabury, Samuel (1729-1796)
London: Richardson and Urquhart. 1775. 12mo (19.75 cm). F First English Edition. H Hard Cover. Very Good. Rare first English edition of this important work sometimes jointly attributed to Seabury and to Isaac Wilkins (1742-1830). A brilliant attack on the first Continental Congress, showing the illogic of the arguments that the king and his ministers are evil and the Parliament good, and correctly predicting that the Parliament would eventually back the king and that war would result. Alexander Hamilton's first work, "A Full Vindication of the Measures of Congress, &c.", written while he was only seventeen years of age, was published in response, and indeed Seabury notes in a postscript that he is "neither frightened nor disconcerted by it". Seabury was perhaps the pre-eminent exponent of Tory thought in America at the time, and the political exchanges between Seabury and Hamilton were some of the most contentious of the Revolutionary era. Modern binding by Stikeman & Co., three quarter deep blue morocco over lighter blue cloth, gilt spine lettering, [4], 59p. The English edition is much enlarged over the American edition and does not include the page of advertising at the end. Binding has just a touch of shelfwear, good hinges, firm binding. Pages are free from chips, tears or markings and have only light age-toning. Leather and gilt bookplate of William L. Clements at top outer corner of pastedown, some toning to endpapers from bookplate and corners. Howes S-252 "aa", Sabin 78563.

[American Revolution]: [Johnstone, George]:
[Philadelphia. 1775].. [4]pp. on bifolium sheet. Folio. Very minor soiling and chipping at edges. Fine. Printed in Philadelphia on the day of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, opening the American Revolution, by the man who would print the Declaration of Independence the next year. This supplement to the PACKET contains the transcript of a speech by George Johnstone (1730-87), onetime governor of British West Florida and friend of America, in the House of Commons. Johnstone's speech, delivered on the occasion of the motion declaring the colony of Massachusetts to be in rebellion, cautions Parliament not to single out the colony of Massachusetts Bay but to seek conciliatory measures. This speech, made in late January, 1775, was also published as a pamphlet in London the next month, along with two letters by "Junius." Johnstone's speech is followed by a speech made in the House of Lords by the Earl of Chatham, who presents his address "to his Majesty, and most humbly to advise, and beseech him, that in order to open a way towards a happy settlement of the dangerous troubles in America, by beginning to allay ferments and soften animosities there; and above all, for preventing in the mean time, any sudden and fatal catastrophe at Boston, now suffering under the daily irritation of an army before their eyes, and posted in their town." The speech of Chatham also saw pamphlet form in England and America, the latter in four different editions. A dramatic publication on a dramatic date. Brigham, AMERICAN NEWSPAPERS, p. 942 (ref.).

ADAM, After Robert (1728-1792) and James ADAM (d.1794)
London 1775 - Engraving by P. Begbie. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed just outside the platemark on the left margin. An elegant engraving depicting various furnishings designed by Robert and James Adam, including decorative clocks, an ornamental knocker and two elaborate hanging lights. Robert and his brother James Adam forever changed the face of British architecture by introducing innovative Classical design ideas. From 1754-57, Robert lived in Italy where he had a long productive friendship with Piranesi, which was inspirational for both men. Adam's first book, on Diocletian's palace in Dalmatia, is clearly very like the archaeological investigations Piranesi was making at the same time of similar ruins. Piranesi's friendship and passion for Roman Classicism were seminal influences on Adam, and the greatest single factor, other than his own talent, in the work Adam produced on his return to England. Upon his return, the brothers launched their career by building the Adelphi from the Thames to the Strand in London, which although not a commercial success at the time, included one of London's most cherished buildings, the Adlephi Theatre. Together, the Adam brothers designed and built some of the most famous buildings in England, including such bastions of English architecture as Kenwood House, Keddlestone Manor, and Syon House. To the interiors of their English country houses, the Adams brought wonderful ornamental elements in niches, lunettes, festoons and reliefs. Their classically designed buildings were so numerous in London that they change … [Click Below for Full Description]
