        Code des loix des Gentoux, ou réglemens des Brames, traduit de l'Anglais, d'après les Versions faites de l'original écrit en Langue Samskrete. Mit VIII Seiten gestochene Tafeln.

      (Einband etwas verzogen, etwas bestoßen und berieben, innen frisch, gutes Exemplar) Handgefertigter hellbrauner Kalblederband der Zeit (257 x 200 x 41 mm) auf fünf erhabenen echten Bünden, der Rücken mit reicher Vergoldung auf den Feldern, auf zweitem ein hellbraunes, goldgeprägtes Titelschild. Die Deckel gemustert. Rotschnitt, Vorsätze aus Marmorpapier.. Robinets französische Übersetzung des Vivâdârnavasetu auf Grund der 1776 erschienen englischen Fassung von Nathaniel Brassey Halhed (1751-1830), welches die erste in eine europäische Sprache übertragene Sammlung von Gesetzen der Hindus ist. Die Tafeln zeigen das Sanskrit-Alphabet und Textpassagen. Der Ursprungstext wurde von den Pandits Banesvara, Kriparama, Rama Gopala, Krishnajivana, Viresvara, Krishnacandra, Guarikanta, Kalisankara, Syamasundara, Krishnakesava und Sitarama kompiliert.Jean-Baptiste-René Robinet (1735-1820), ein französischer Naturphilosoph, Enzyklopädist und Wegbereiter der Evolutionstheorie, führte mit anderen das Encyclopédie-Projekt von Diderot weiter."He [Halhed] found it necessary to show the authorities that it was far prudent to apply the native laws on their subjects rather than laws that would be alien to them. To this effect the pundits began to assimilate a text from various sources which they named Vivadarnavasetu or the sea of litigations. The subsequent translation to Persian, a language Halhed and Hastings was well acquainted with, was done via a Bengali oral version by Zaid ud-Din 'Ali Rasa'i. Halhed translated the Persian text to English closely attended by Hastings himself. The complete translation was in Hastings' hands on 27 March 1775. At his request the East India Company had it printed in London in 1776 in a handsome quarto under the title of A Code of Gentoo Laws, or, Ordinations of the Pundits. This was a private edition, copies of which were not for sale, but was distributed by the East India Company. A pirated and less luxurious edition in octavo was printed by Donaldson the following year followed by a second edition in 1781 and translations in French and German appeared as early as 1778." (From Wikipedia). - First and only French edition. Contemporary calf, five raised bands, spine gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers, edges rouged. Corners slightly rubbed, small tear to upper end of spine internal condition very good. From the library of Schlabrendorf, with engraved ex-libris.

French translation by Jean-Baptiste René Robinet (1735-1820) of Halhed's English version of the Vivâdârnavasetu, a compilation in 21 sections (taranga).

        [COOK] An election ball in poetical letters, in the Zomerzetshire dialect, from Mr. Inkle, a freeman

      of Bath, to his wife at Gloucester : with a poetical address to John Miller, Esq.; at Bath-Easton Villa. By the author of the New Bath Guide. Dublin : Printed by Geoge Bonham, at No. 42, in Dame-street, for the Proprietors, 1776. Octavo, disbound, original stitching, pp 32 (pp 1-12 being Anstey'sThe first ode of the book of Horace imitated. To John Miller, Esq.), pages with a moderate amount of toning and a light corner crease to the final few leaves, otherwise without faults and in near original state. Christopher Anstey was a wealthy Cambridgeshire clergyman and man of letters whose satirical pieceNew Bath Guide, or members of the Blunderhead family (1766), which had achieved moderate popular success, is said to have provided the inspiration for Tobias Smollett's Humphry Clinker. Anstey's equally savage satire An election ball in poetical letters lampoons the females, in particular, of Gloucester and Bath's (only superficially) genteel society, and in its mockery of their gauche attire it contains two stanzas that allude to Cook's first voyage: 'In short, Head and Feather and Wig altogether / With wonder and Joy would delight 'e, / Like the Picture I've zeen / of th'adorable Queen / Of beautiful, blest Otaheitee. / Who gave zuch a Ball, / To our merry Men all, / And there did so frisk it and dance it, / Zome thought her as vine, / And zome did opine, / 'Twas Venus herself in her TRANZIT'. This contemporary reference (Anstey's work is dated December 5, 1775) to the observation in Tahiti by Cook, Green and Solander of the Transit of Venus in 1769 has apparently previously gone unnoted in the literature of eighteenth-century voyages.

        Some Account of the Life and Gospel Labours of William Reckitt.

      - London, James Phillips, 1776. Small 8vo. Contemporary sheep, spine with raised bands; pp. 204; rebacked, retaining the original spine, new morocco lettering-piece, light wear to extremities, apart from light spotting to title a rather clean and fresh copy. First edition. William Reckitt (1706-1769), member of a Quaker family based in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire 'was apprenticed by a Friend for a while and then set up as a weaver in the Wainfleet district and married Ellen Maw in 1731. They went on to have nine children though several of them did not survive childhood. In 1744 William Reckitt began a travelling ministry and in 1756 he embarked on a long journey across France and out to visit Friends in America and the West Indies before returning in 1760. From his experiences he wrote Some Account of the Life and Gospel Labours of William Reckitt and editions of this contain printed copies of his letters home. The text contains detailed descriptions of the American colonies and is interesting for its anti-slavery content. In the West Indies he saw such cruelty that "it raised such a just indignation in my heart, that I used great freedom of speech sometimes in conversation. Any contrition he encountered he took as a sign that `the Lord is rising . in judgement in the hearts of those negro keepers, shewing them the practice is evil" (Reckitt, William Reckitt, pp.9-49; Reckitt, Some account of the Life.of William Reckitt, pp. 176-7). William Reckitt made a second trip in 1764 during which his wife died. He returned to Lincolnshire and died himself in 1769' (Records of Isaac Reckitt kept at Hull University, online). ESTC T49229.

        The American Military Pocket Atlas; Being an Approved Collection of Correct Maps, Both General and Particular, of the British Colonies; Especially Those Which Now Are, or Probably May Be the Theatre of War

      R. Sayer and J. Bennet,, London, 1776 - Sir Henry Neville's "Holster Atlas" 4to., (270 by 210mm). 6 fine folding engraved map with contemporary hand-colour in outline, folds strenthened with linen on verso at the time of binding. Contemporary sprinkled calf, the spine in six gilt-ruled compartments with five raised bands, green morocco lettering-piece in one (strengthened at the head and foot of the spine) Sayer and Bennett, successors to Thomas Jefferys, published this iconic atlas for British use in the field during the American Revolution, "a portable atlas.calculated in its bulk and price to suit the pockets of officers of all rank." However, since the atlas was mostly stowed in their holsters, it became widely known as the "holster atlas." This example, from the library of Sir Henry Neville, has been bound with the maps with fewer folds and so a larger format. The maps are those "that the British high command regarded as providing essential topographical information in the most convenient form" (Schwartz & Ehrenberg), and include: "North America, as divided amongst the European Powers", and "A Compleat Map of the The West Indies, containing Coasts of Florida, Louisiana, New Spain, and Terra Firma: with all the Islands" by Samuel Dunn; "A General Map of the Northern British Colonies in America. Which comprehends the Province of Quebec, the Government of Newfoundland, Nova-Scotia, New England and New York" by Samuel Holland and Thomas Pownall (1776); "A General Map of the Middle British Colonies, in America. Containing Virginia, Maryland, the Delaware counties, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. With the addition of New York, and of the Greatest Part of New England, as also of the Bordering Parts of the Province of Quebec, improved from several surveys made after the late War, and Corrected from Governor Pownall's Late Map 1776" after Joshua Fry and Peter Jefferson, and Lewis Evans; "A General Map of the Southern British Colonies, in America, comprehending North and South Carolina, Georgia, East and West Florida, with the Neighbouring Indian Countries." after William de Brahm, Henry Mouzon, John Collett, and Bernard Romans; and "A Survey of Lake Champlain, including Lake George, Crown Point and St. John" by William Brassier.

        Autograph letter signed ("Gluck").

      Vienna, 29. XI. 1776. - 4to. 1 p. on bifolium. To his friend Franz Kruthoffer (1740-1815?), secretary at the Imperial Embassy in Paris and Gluck's de facto private secretary: a fine document of Gluck's shrewd business sense as well as of the high demand among librettists for music by the foremost composer of his age. For Kruthoffer's sake, Gluck promises to accomodate his publisher Peters with regard to royalties, but he makes it clear that in turn he will be asking extra voucher copies and will not let this one-off concession establish a precedent for future negotiations. Also, Gluck complains of the unsolicited opera librettos with which he is swamped by poets, and he forbids Kruthoffer to accept such submissions for him: "Wertester Freyndt / Ihren brief von 17 october habe rechtens Erhalten, in dem letzten Ersehe das begehren des Mr. [Johann Anton de] Peters, welches, weilen Er Ihr gutter freyndt ist, ich vor dieses mahl annehmen wiel, aber Etliche partitionen werde mir vor behalten, wie auch, das auß diesen wenigen, was Er geben wiel, keine consequentz vor zukünfftige opern gemacht wer den soll; der Courrier wiel abgehen, ich kan ihnen nichts mehr schreiben als Unser Compliments tres sinceres de la part de ma femme et de moi a vous, et a Mr. [Franz] de Blumendorff. Ich bitte ihnen auch kein pacquet an mich an zu nehmen Wo man mir wiel poesie schicken umb opern zu machen, dan ich werde grausamb desentwegen bombardirt [.]". - Folded horizontally, without an address: as mentioned in the text, the thrifty Gluck sent this letter - as most of his communications with Kruthoffer - by way of the diplomatic courier service just leaving Vienna for Paris. Kruthoffer has noted his response in the upper margin: "Beant. Paris am 18ten Dezember 1776". Extremely rare, especially when signed (as Gluck, using the diplomatic mail, usually omitted his signature from his letters to Kruthoffer). Kinsky's 1927 edition of Gluck's correspondence with Kruthoffer noted the loss of a letter of this date; it was not published until 1932. - Provenance: in the "autograph collection of Mrs E[milie] Sch[aup] in Vienna" (cf. Komorn, p. 674) in 1932; in an unidentified "private collection" (cf. Badura-Skoda) in 1963. Includes old collection folder. Not in Kinsky (but cf. note p. 26). Not in Müller v. Asow (ed.), The Collected Correspondence and Papers of Christoph Willibald Gluck (1962).

        Catalogo dei Quadri dei Disegni, e dei Libri che trattano dell'Arte del Disegno della Galleria del fu Sig. Conte Algarotti in Venezia

      One finely engraved head-piece. 4 p.l., LXXX pp. 8vo, attractive early 19th-century calf-backed marbled boards, flat spine gilt, orange & green morocco lettering pieces on spines. [Venice, ca. 1776]. [bound with]: (PINELLI, Maffeo). Catalogo di Quadri raccolti dal fu Signor Maffeo Pinelli, ed ora posti in vendita in Venezia 1785. viii, 125 pp., one blank leaf. 8vo. [Venice: July 1785]. [bound with]: (GRIMANI COLLECTION). [Drop-title on p. 3]: Pitture e Scolture nel Palazzo di Casa Grimani a S.ta Maria Formosa. Engraved frontis. Titles & text in double columns in Italian & French. 13 pp. 8vo. [Venice: ca. 1790]. A fascinating sammelband of three very rare privately printed catalogues of important Venetian art collections, the first two of which were dispersed in the late 18th century. This volume was bound for Girolami Caratti of Udine, art enthusiast and book collector extraordinaire. Caratti is an elusive figure but we know that he corresponded extensively with Giovanni de Lazara and others. I. A rare catalogue, compiled by the architect G.A. Selva and based on the notes of the painter Pietro Edwards; a French language issue appeared in the same year and is also very rare. The collection was that of Francesco Algarotti (1712-64), cosmopolitan connoisseur of the arts and sciences who was esteemed by the philosophers of the Enlightenment for his wide knowledge and elegant presentation of advanced ideas. Algarotti commissioned a great many Venetian paintings for Augustus, Elector of Saxony, and for himself. Algarotti died in 1764 and the collection was then augmented by his brother Count Bonomo Algarotti who died in 1776. This catalogue was privately published by Bonomo's daughter, Contessa Maria Algarotti Corniani, from a manuscript found among her father's papers. The catalogue describes a large collection of splendid paintings, with detailed descriptions and measurements in Parisian feet (a rate of translation into Venetian feet is supplied). The drawings are described in less detail, though the medium is specified, and an extensive library of books on the fine arts and architecture is appended on pages LIX-LXXX. WorldCat locates no copy of either the Italian or French issues of this catalogue in North America. II. The rare catalogue of Maffeo Pinelli's large collection of paintings, here offered for sale, compiled by Jacobo Morelli, librarian at the Marciana, and authenticated by Davide Fossati and Domenico Maggioto, both members of the Accademia di Pittura di Venezia. The catalogue was privately published by Pinelli's executor, Daniele Zanchi, and includes detailed descriptions and measurements in Venetian feet of the paintings offered. In the preface, Morelli also devotes two pages to advertise his forthcoming catalogues Pinelli's library, justly claiming that the books are "di ottima conservazione, e degno di adornare qualunque Bibliotheca Regia" (p. viii). The catalogues of the Pinelli library, one of the most important private libraries in Italy, was issued in six volumes in 1787. The collection was then sold en bloc to the London bookseller James Edwards who in turn issued an auction catalogue. This sale marked the beginning of London as international art center. WorldCat locates only the CCA copy in North America. III. A charming guide to the art treasures in the Palazzo Grimani of Venice. The frontispiece depicts the entrance and view into the courtyard of the Palazzo Grimani. Caratti has annotated the frontispiece in manuscript and amended two points in the printed description. Fine copies, most attractively bound. With the signature of Caratti on the free front endpaper: "Ao. 1811. Girolamo Caratti Udine." I. Cicognara 4592. II & III. Not Cicognara.

        A voyage round the world, in the years MDCCXL, I, II, III, IV, by George Anson, Esq; afterwards Lord Anson, Commander in Chief of a Squadron of His Majesty’s Ships, sent upon an Expedition to the South-Seas. Compiled, from his papers and materials, by Richard Walter, M. A. Chaplain of His Majesty’s Ship the Centurion, in that Expedition. Illustrated with forty-two copper-plates [Extra-Illustrated]

      London: printed for W. Bowyer and J. Nichols, W. Strahan, J. F. and C. Rivington, T. Davies, L. Hawes and Co. R. Horsfield, T. Becket, T. Lowndes, S. Crowder, J. Knox, T. Cadell, W. Otridge, G. Robinson, R. Baldwin, W. Woodfall, and E. Johnston [through 1776], MDCCXLVIII [1748]. Early Reprint. Full Calf. Near Fine+. Fifteenth Edition (first published 1748) of the official account of Anson's famous circumnavigation of the world, the "most popular book of maritime adventure of the eighteenth century" and a "masterpiece of descriptive travel." (Hill). Royal Quarto (not the inferior octavo edition of the same year), complete with 42 plates, maps and charts (many folding), in addition to the magnificent folding map, bound in as frontispiece, showing the route of the Centurion, not present in the first edition and not called for in the directions to the binder. xx,417,[3]pp. Contemporary speckled calf, sympathetically rebacked in matching brown calf, spine with raised bands ruled in gilt, gilt-lettered red morocco label. End papers renewed, but retaining copper-engraved armorial bookplate of Julines Hering (presumably Julines Hering [1732-1797] of Heybridge Hall, military officer and later wealthy owner of sugar plantations in Jamaica), reaffixed to front paste down. An excellent copy, the attractive contemporary binding tight and secure, several maps with nearly invisible repairs by a paper conservationist, a few plates and adjacent text-pages foxed, a few neat marginal notes in brown ink in a contemporary hand, but in all a very bright, clean, well-margined copy, with only light occasional finger-soiling and spotting. Hill 1817. Sabin 1629. Gibson's Library, p. 50. Borba de Moraes 38. Cox Vol. I, p. 49. One of the landmark English circumnavigations, Anson's voyage laid the groundwork for British voyages of exploration in the Pacific by Cook and others during the second half of the 18th century. Unlike those later voyages undertaken for scientific purposes, however, Anson's was a strictly military expedition, intended to disrupt Spanish commerce in the Pacific and cut off Spanish supplies of wealth from South America after the outbreak of war between Britain and Spain, in 1739. In the autumn of that year, Anson was put in command of a small squadron—the Centurion (60 guns), the Gloucester (50 guns), the Severn (50 guns), the Pearl (40 guns), the Wager (28 guns), the sloop Tryal (8 guns) and two store ships—and sent to plunder Spanish trading territories on the Pacific coast of South America. But after his ships were battered by storms and most of his crew lost during the trip round Cape Horn, the expedition was on the verge of collapse. Anson retreated across the Pacific to Macao, where the Centurion was repaired and more crew was signed on. Then, in June, 1743, Anson achieved a substantial victory, capturing a Spanish treasure ship, the Manila galleon, off the Philippines, and returned to England in 1744 by way of China, thus completing a circumnavigation. "Anson’s voyage is remembered as a classic tale of endurance and leadership in the face of fearful disasters, but to the British public of 1744 it was the treasure of the galleon, triumphantly paraded through the streets of London, which did something to restore national self-esteem battered by an unsuccessful war." (ODNB) The precise authorship of the Voyage has long been a subject of debate. Although the title-page states the book was "compiled" by Richard Walter, chaplain of Anson's flagship the 'Centurion,' Sir John Barrow's 1839 Life of George, Lord Anson claimed it was, in fact, written by Colonel Benjamin Robins, "an engineer officer of great talent and celebrity." According to Barrow, "Walter drew the skeleton, and Robins clothed it with flesh and warmth of imagination." N. B.

        A Modern System of Natural History. [In Twelve Volumes, Complete]; Containing Accurate Descriptions and Faithful Histories, of Animals, Vegetables, and Minerals. [Quadrupeds (Vols I - IV) ; Ornithology (Vols V-VIII) ; Fishes (Vols IX-X) ; Reptiles & Insects (Vol XI) ; Waters, Earths (Vol XII)]

      F Newberry, London 1776 - Copperplate engravings; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 2146 pages; 12 volumes, complete. 1st and only edition. 12mo (in 6s). Uniformly bound in marbled calf with extra gilt tooling to spines rubbed and perishing. Recent owner commissioned gilt tooled morocco spine labes for each volume with title (Ward's Natural History) and volume number labels mounted to spines. This set contains 122 copperplate engravings, though there is certainly one plate lacking from Vol V. Volumes V - XII issued with two title pages, one for the whole work and one for the specific study - Ornithology, Fishes, Reptiles etc. Each of these discrete sets/works contained in the larger set contain separate indices and pages with lists of plates for placement by the binder. Lacking from these catalogs is the plate for the Gyr Falcon to be placed at pp. 108 of Vol V. Vols I-IV, which comprise the study of Quadrupeds were issued with only the title page for the whole work and not with title pages for the Quadruped volumes. No list of plates accompanied the Quadruped volumes; it appears the extra several plates found in this set (and not seen in most other sets) are located among the first 4 volumes. Almost uniformly there are two blank endpages at front and rear, though in 2 volumes there is only a single blank at rear. Interestingly Vol XI - the study of reptiles has a 2nd title page identifying it as Vol I of that study, though no 2nd volume appeared. As a final leaf in the last (12th volume) a corrected 2nd title page for the Reptile volume is supplied without reference to a Vol I for the book on Reptiles. Several volumes have Newberry catalog ad pages at rear. Each volume collated and found complete, save for the lack of a single plate from Vol V. Half of the volumes have the front board detached, and several with the rear board detached. Other boards tenuous. Leather at spines chipped at spine ends and with surfaces rubbed and flaking with much loss of extra gilt work. Housed in a custom made cloth covered case commissioned by recent owner. Original manuscript ownership rubbed from the patedowns of each volume, though dimly visible - might be a James Flanagan. Text blocks tightly bound, bright and very neat; copperplates are crisp and fresh. Generally considered complete with 118 copperplates, this set notable for several extra plates. Contents much better than VG but with wear to spines and joints. G+ [Plate count by Volume : I (4) ; II ( 21) ; III (16) ; IV ( 4) ; V ( 7) ; VI (7) ; VII (16) ; VIII (7) ; IX ( 13) ; X ( 7) ; XI (10) ; XII (10) Oversize book will require additional charges for most shipping methods.

        [BOUGAINVILLE] Voyage autour du monde, par la frégate du roi La Boudeuse, et La Flûte l'Étoile;

      en 1776, 1767. 1768 & 1769. Paris : Chez Saillant & Nyon, 1772. Second édition, augmentée. Two volumes, octavo, contemporary full mottled calf, spines with raised bands, gilt ornament and red labels with gilt lettering, marbled endpapers, all edges stained red, pp 336, 453, [3], first volume with 6 copper engraved maps (folding), second volume with 15 maps (folding) and 3 engraved plates, engraved headpieces, tailpieces and initials, contents of both volumes crisp and clean, a fine copy. Bougainville's voyage - the first French circumnavigation - was of immense importance in terms of the impetus it provided to a renewal of France's colonial empire following territorial losses suffered to Britain in the Seven Years' War: it opened up the Pacific for French expansion. Yet what cannot be overstated is the impact that Bougainville's own vivid and romanticised descriptions of the Pacific - specifically Tahiti - had on the French public imagination, her writers, artists and thinkers. The utopian ideal of the noble savage living in an Earthly Paradise owes much to Bougainville's response to his encounter with the Tahitian culture and landscape. Even though he was not the first European to reach Tahiti - the Englishman Samuel Wallis had done so one year earlier - Bougainville's account is fundamental to the formation of the European romantic vision of the South Seas. Bougainville had the imprimatur of the French government to undertake a voyage of exploration which would seek to gather scientific, geographical and cultural information. For example, his narrative includes the first vocabulary of the Tahitian language, which is also the first written glossary of any Polynesian language. The advancement of knowledge had not been the principle objective of French voyages of the preceding period, which were motivated by commercial interests. After entering the Pacific through the Straits of Magellan early in 1768, Bougainville went in fruitless search of the fabled 'Davis Land', which was rumoured to exist to the west of Chile. He then took possession of the Tuamotu Archipelago and Tahiti for France, providing in his narrative an extensive, detailed and enthusiastic account of Tahiti. Crossing the Pacific he made landfall first in Samoa and then the New Hebrides. From the island of Espiritu Santo, with the thought of possibly discovering the east coast of New Holland, he struck out due west, a course which would have allowed him to reach the coast of Queensland. Fatefully, he was unable to navigate through the Great Barrier Reef, and sailing north instead, he passed through the Solomons (naming Bougainville for himself) and on to Batavia. Bougainville was to learn in Batavia of the exploits of the navigators Wallis and Carteret, both of whom had sailed across the Pacific a short time earlier. However, it was Bougainville's narrative which was to cause a sensation in France upon its publication, in some part because of its contribution to scientific and geographical knowledge but primarily for the account of Tahiti, which was to have such an enduring effect on the European imagination. The first edition of Voyage autour du monde, also published by Saillant & Nyon, appeared in 1771. Copies of this slightly expanded second edition are recorded in five Australian collections (National Library of Australia; State Library of New South Wales; State Library of Queensland; University of Queensland Library; State Library of Victoria).

        Vue d'Italie : Marine animée à la tour carrée

      S.n. 1776 - - S.n., s.l. (Circa 1776), Cadre : 40x50cm ; dessin : 18x24cm, une feuille encadrée. - Dessin original au crayon représentant une vue animée de bord de mer. Encadrement moderne de baguettes noires. Dessin réalisé pendant le voyage fait avec le marquis de Sade au cours de l'année 1776. Jean-Baptiste Tierce (1737-1794), élève à l'école des Beaux-arts de Rouen puis à l'Académie de Peinture et de Sculpture de Paris, se fit rapidement remarquer comme paysagiste pour ses vues du Sud de la France et de l'Italie. Ses tableaux sont conservés aux Offices de Florence et dans plusieurs musées français. Lorsqu'en décembre 1775 Sade quitte Rome pour Naples, il est accueilli par le gendre de son ami le Docteur Mesny, Jean-Baptiste Tierce, qui à cette époque reçoit les commandes du Cardinal de Bernis. Il trouve un logement au Marquis « [qui] entend tout voir [de la région], s'instruire de tout, juger, admirer, critiquer, aimer, haïr, bref se livrer sans frein à cette curiosité insatiable et passionnée qui le conduit aussi bien dans les musées, les galeries, les églises, les palais et les bibliothèques, que dans les grottes, les caveaux, les catacombes, et jusque dans les entrailles des volcans. Il ne se contente pas de contempler les œuvres d'art, les monuments antiques ou modernes, il observe aussi les mœurs, la politique, la religion, l'administration, la vie sociale. La beauté des femmes, les usages du monde, la qualité des spectacles, les manières de manger, de boire, de s'habiller, de prier, de se conduire dans le monde : rien ne le laisse indifférent. Il voudrait saisir tout le présent et tout le passé de cette civilisation, l'embrasser toute entière dans une vision unique et universelle. Programme gigantesque, à la mesure de son imagination exceptionnelle, mais qu'il n'a plus remplir, qu'il lui était impossible de remplir. Pourtant, telle est sa première ambition d'écrivain : grandiose, démesurée. En vue de ce « grand œuvre », Sade prend des notes à la hâte, au bord des chemins ou dans les auberges, qu'il complète avec les fiches de ses correspondants Mesny et Iberti. Ainsi s'édifie ce monument qu'il destine au public, mais qui ne verra le jour qu'au XXème siècle. Jean-Baptiste Tierce y collabore étroitement : il relit les notes et consigne ses observations sur de petits cahiers, avec des numéros renvoyant aux œuvres décrites. Sade en tient le plus grand compte. Souvent, le peintre l'accompagne dans ses randonnées, son carnet de croquis à la main, dessinant les édifices et les paysages qu'ils ont sous les yeux. Une centaine de ces dessins et gouaches ont été récemment retrouvés dans les archives de la famille de Sade. Ils confèrent au Voyage en Italie l'allure d'un véritable reportage. » (Maurice Levert, Sade, pp. 283-284). Provenance : archives de la famille de Sade. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Italian scene: animated seaside with square tower Original pencil drawing showing an animated seaside scene. Modern black wooden frame. A drawing done during the journey the artist undertook with Sade in 1776. Jean-Baptiste Tierce (1737-1794), who studied at the School of Fine Arts in Rouen and subsequently at the Academy of Painting and Sculpture in Paris, quickly built a reputation as a landscapist for his views of the South of France and Italy. His paintings are in the Uffizi in Florence and several French museums. When, in December 1775, Sade left Rome for Naples, he was welcomed by the son-in-law of his friend Dr. Mesny, Jean-Baptiste Tierce, who at the time was working on commissions for Cardinal de Bernis. He found lodgings for the Marquis who "intends to see everything [of the region], learn everything, judge, admire, critique, love, hate, in short give himself over to the insatiable and passionate curiosity that takes him to museums, galleries, churches, palaces and libraries as well as grottoes, caves, catacombs, and right down to the very innards of volcanoes. He was not content merely to look at the various works of art [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

      1776. I am offering a small hand-drawn and hand-colored map of part of Germany near Denmark, the title reading "Landkarte von Eyderstede Everschop und Utholm." The peninsula covered by the map, largely flat marshland, was being diked by the year 1,000 a.d., a cooperative gesture between settlements surely uncommon for the time. The map shows green landscape, heraldic Eyderstede ships, inked names and buildings, map projection numbers, a mileage chart, and the illegible signature of T.C. ****, who drew it in 1776. The map, in its borders, measures 14.5cm x 19,7 cm, and has an old center crease. The reverse bears a few brown stains and possibly a narrow trace of tape. It is on cream laid paper and has never been matted or framed, though the margins are cut fairly close. This little map is amazingly vivid and full of charm.

      Paris, chez l'auteur et chez Debure l'ainé Libraire, [1776]. Folio (45.5 x 28.9 cm) with 38 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates with engraved text and engraved title. Original printed wrappers. In 20th-century protective cloth box (48.2 x 30.6 x 2.8 cm) with a printed label mounted on the front (top) board.l Very rare, only published edition, ‘à compte d'auteur’, Pierre Joseph Buc'hoz (1731-1807). It includes fine, hand-coloured plates of both wild and domestic animals, all with elaborate text about their habitats, habits and their physiognomy. The plates are somewhat in the style of Buffon, but the text is entirely different, clearly of an independently crafted work. Conlon states that the work was published in 1776. The index of the Biblioteca comunale di Siena lists 1778, but that could be the year of acquisition, or the publishing date of a sequel. Such a sequel, with one bird plate only, was recorded in the "Nachricht von den Werken des Naturforschers Büchoz", an anonymous publication issued in 1795 or 1796. Title page with a few repairs, otherwise a very good copy. Conlon "Le siècle des lumières XVIII, p. 87; Neither in Nissen, ZBI, nor in Cat. BM(NH), nor in Brunet.

        Biblia, das ist die ganze gottliche hielige Schrift alten und neuen Testaments nach der deutschen Uebersetzung D Martin Luthers

      Germantown: Christopher Saur, 1776. Thick 4to, pp. [4], 992, 277, [3]; ex-AAS, with their engraved bookplate on the front pastedown; title page cleaned and backed, the title and second leaf with neat repairs to the fore-margin; moderate toning and foxing throughout, and a bit of occasional waterstaining; full contemporary calf, black morocco label on spine; rear board replaced, and the whole rebacked using the original front board and spine; in spite of the restorations, a pretty nice copy, lacking the original clasps. A pencil note on the flyleaf reads: "Purchased Anderson Auction Co,. Sale Oct. 13, 1909." And a corroborating notation in ink on an old bookseller's catalogue cutting pasted in under the bookplate: "Geo. Matthews sale 10/13/09 Anderson Gall." Saur's famed "Gun-Wad Bible", so named because the remaining unbound sheets were used for gun-wadding when the British entered Philadelphia during the American Revolution. The first Bible printed in the Western Hemisphere was Eliot's Indian Bible of 1663. The first Bible printed in the Western Hemisphere in a European language was Christopher Saur's German Bible, published in 1743; it was reprinted in 1763, and again in that fateful year, 1776. "This edition consisted of 3000 copies. The Revolutionary War broke out about the time it was issued, and after the Battle of Germantown, Saur, to preserve the residue of his property, and in the supposition that American independence could not be maintained, went into Philadelphia and resided there whilst the British held possession of that city. His estate was subsequently confiscated in consequence, and his books sold. The principle part of this third edition of the Germantown Bible in sheets were thus destroyed, having been used for cartridge paper" (O'Callaghan, p. 29).

      Germantown: Christoph Saur, 1776. [4],992,277,[3]pp. Quarto. Contemporary calf over wooden boards, clasps lacking. Hinges cracked but solid, extremities worn. Light foxing and soiling, moderate wear to first and last few leaves. Good. In a custom cloth box, gilt leather label. The third edition of the first European-language Bible printed in America, famously known as the "Gun-Wad Bible," after its use in the American Revolutionary War as cartridge paper during the Battle of Germantown. It is also notable for being the first Bible printed from type cast in America. Reputed to have been printed in an edition of 3000 copies, most are said to have been destroyed by the British during the battle. The present edition was printed by Christopher Saur II, son of Christoph Saur the elder, a native of Wittgenstein, Germany. The elder Saur emigrated to Germantown, Pennsylvania and practiced medicine before turning to printing. It was he who printed the 1743 first edition; the son then printed a second edition in 1763.
