        View of a part of the inside of the cone of the mountain of Somma (tav. XXXV).

      Incisione in rame, foglio: mm. 330x460, battuta: mm. 215x395. Acquerellata d'epoca. Ottime condizioni.Tratta da: HAMILTON WILLIAM. Napoli, Pietro Fabris, 1776-1779.Campi phlegraei. Observations on the volcanos of the two Sicilies? Supplement to the Campi Phlegraei being an account to the grat eruption of the mount Vesuvius in the month of August 1779? L'opera costituisce un caso unico nella storia del libro illustrato settecentesco, in quanto riunisce un testo di grande interesse scientifico a una serie di 54 tavole di grande valore artistico disegnate dal vero, eseguite all'acquaforte su lastra di rame e dipinte all'acquerello dal grande vedutista Pietro Fabris (attivo tra 1763 e 1779). Il trattato, fu pubblicato nel 1776 con testo francese e inglese e fu indirizzato alla Royal Society di Londra. L'autore, Sir William Hamilton (1730-1803), fu a Napoli tra il 1764 e il 1800 come ambasciatore d'Inghilterra; durante tale permanenza poté raccogliere molto materiale relativo alla vulcanologia, in particolar modo riguardante il Vesuvio e i Campi Flegrei, ma anche riguardanti l'Etna e altre località siciliane. Di Fabris invece non si sa molto, ma, di certo, con le tavole dei Campi Phlegarei si pose a modello per le vedute al guazzo di tutti i maestri napoletani successivi, da Alessandro D'Anna a Saverio Della Gatta. Le incisioni acquerellate del Fabris, in accordo con il gusto dell'epoca per l'alternanza di idillico e sublime, presentano scenari ameni e terribili eruzioni vulcaniche, ma anche campioni di minerali prelevati nelle varie località descritte da Hamilton, i quali vengono illustrati in maniera assolutamente realistica, pur mantendo sempre un alta qualità artistica.

        Royaume de Danemarck qui comprend le Nort-Jutland ?le Sud-Jutland? et le Isles de Fionie, Sélande, Laland, & c. Venezia: Francesco Santini, a Santa Giustina, 1776

      VENEZIA: FRANCESCO SANTINI, A SANTA GIUSTINA, 1776 1776 Incisione su rame all'acquaforte e bulino in due fogli incollati di mm 575 x 486. Bella vergata veneziana. Filigrana trelune. Foglio a larghi margini. Una gora leggera nella parte centrale. Titolo entro ricco cartiglio in alto a destra. Toponimi e descrizioni geografiche nella mappa. Proveniente da: "Atlas universel dressé sur les meilleures cartes modernes", Venezia 1776. Gli Atlanti stampati da Francesco Santini, che, come indicato spesso nelle carte, teneva bottega a Santa Giustina, nel Sestiere di Castello, riutilizzano le lastre incise da Lattrè e disegnate da Janvier per l' "Atlas Moderne" stampato a Parigi nel 1771. L'Atlante di Janvier ebbe un immediato apprezzamento, sia per la precisione geografica, che per i ricchi cartigli molto decorativi. Robert (Jean) Janvier: working in Paris in the second half of the eighteenth century, Jean Janvier (1746 ? 1776) produced a series of maps in the later half of the century. While there is some confusion about his Christian name, his maps usually were inscribed ?Le Sieur Janvier?. He is best known for his collaboration with engraver Jean Lattre for an Atlas Moderne first released in 1762 and in several later editions some by C. F. Delamarche and by Chez Remondini. He also produced several maps used in general atlases by William Fadan and P. Santini.

      1776. Linguet, [Simon Nicolas Henri] [1736-1794]. Requete au Conseil de Roi, Pour M. Linguet, Avocat. Contre les Arrets du Parlement de Paris, Des 29 Mars & 4 Fevrier 1775. Amsterdam: Chez Marc-Michel Rey, 1776. 12mo. [ii], 260 pp. 12mo (6-1/2" x 4"). Contemporary mottled sheep, gilt spine, marbled endpapers. Light rubbing to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities. Some toning to text, internally clean. A nice copy. * First edition. (Also issued the same year in Geneva.) This book concerns the sanctioning of Linguet's disbarment by the Order of Barristers by the Parlement. The complicated circumstances had to do with competition within the Order of Barristers and tensions between the Order and the Parlement. Linguet, admitted to the bar in 1764, was a formidable advocate. The immediate cause of his disbarment was "a tirade in which the author seems to have lost his temper and denounced the Order. This convoluted affair is described in Michael P. Fitzsimmons, The Parisian Order of Barristers and the French Revolution, 24ff. OCLC locates 4 copies in North America, 1 in a law library (UC-Berkeley). Another copy located at George Washington University Law School. Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

        Anthologia Meriana CXV. continens plantarum, florum maxime, egregie sculptas tabulas, addito indice, in quo tum antiquiora illarum, tum etiam Linnaeana occurrunt nomina. Editio nova.

      Francofurti et Lipsaie, apud Joann. Georg. Fleischer, 1776. Folio (353 x 227mm). pp. 6, with 115 (4 folded) engraved plates. Contemporary vellum, spine with gilt lettering. A well preserved and spotless copy of one of the most beautiful German florilegia illustrating numerous exotic and unusual plants. It is the last edition of de Bry's famous florilegium. The first edition appeared 1612-14 with 87 plates. The florilegium was very popular and considerably expanded in later editions. Johann Theodor de Bry belonged to a noted family of engravers from Frankfurt. "In 1641, twenty-one years after the death of Johann Theodor de Bry, Matthaeus Merian the elder published an amplified version of the 'opus magnus' of his father-in-law 'Florelegium novum', entitling it 'Florilegium renovatum'. Merian was born in Basel in 1593... he settled in Frankfurt, where he married de Bry's daughter. A versatile artist, Merian not only continued the work of his father-in-law as an engraver, he also painted landscapes, portraits and historical scenes. His children, Matthaeus the younger and Maria Sibylla, followed in his footsteps: both became artists." (Tomasi, An Oak Spring Flora p. 74). This last edition has 115 plates portraying the most beautiful plants of the 'Florilegium Renovatum et Auctum' published in 1641 (-1647). Nissen BBI, 276.

        Catalogus bibliothecæ templi cathedralis Strengnesensis.

      Strängnäs, L. A. Collin, 1776. 4:o. 63 s. Elegant halvpergamentbd med röd titeletikett av skinn och rödstänkt övre snitt, övriga snitt oskurna (Hedberg, 1954). Titelbladet har en gammal lagning i nedre yttre hörnet. Avslutas med ett inbundet grått blad med anteckningar av C. M. Carlander. Fint ex. med Gustaf Bernströms exlibris.. Almquist Sveriges bibliografiska litteratur 3138, som anger F. V. Brannius som katalogens upphovsman. Denne var förvisso bibliotekarie vid Strängnäs domkyrkobibliotek, men föddes inte förrän 1780. En annan uppgift har gjort gällande att det var hans far Johan Wilhelm Brannius, kanslist i Riksarkivet, som sammanställde katalogen, men av allt att döma rör det sig istället om Carl Gustaf Barkman (1725-99). Han är känd för sin latinska grammatik som utkom i flera upplagor. Katalogen förtecknar den krigsbytesrika boksamling som än idag står i domkyrkan i Strängnäs och nästan uteslutande består av böcker tryckta på 1400- och 1500-talen samt de första årtiondena av 1600-talet. På sidorna 57-63 förtecknas biskop Johannes Matthiæs donation. Carlanders medbundna anteckningsblad är ett utdrag ur "Lärda tidningar" 1750 om biblioteket

        Tankar om verldenes, i synnerhet jordenes, danande och ändring.

      Sthlm, H. Fougt, 1776. 8:o. (6),183,(1 blank,4) s. & 1 utvikbar grav. plansch. Samtida trevligt hfrbd med upphöjda bind och benvit titeletikett. Binden enkelt markerade i guld. Stänkta snitt. Mindre mörk fläck i högra kanten av nedersta ryggfältet. Spridda småfläckar. Charmigt ex. tryckt på ljusblått papper.. I detta berömda men även för sin tid omoderna geologiska arbete försökte Wallerius med hjälp av de nya vetenskaperna att förklara världens uppkomst utifrån gamla testamentet. Wallerius argumenterar för att världen skapats ur vatten och ljus (motsvarande första Moseboks himmel och jord) och åberopar bl.a. en mängd tänkare ur den mystiska traditionen. Frängsmyr ser arbetet som "ett levande exempel på den underströmning av mystik som kännetecknar det förnuftsinriktade 1700-talet." Boken blev också uppskattad i sin samtid och översattes till bl.a. tyska, franska och italienska. En latinsk utgåva utkom 1779

        Le costume ou essai sur les habillements et les usages de plusieurs peuples de l'antiquité, prouvé par les monuments

      Aux depens de l'auteur chez J.F. Bassompierre Liege: Aux dépens de l'auteur, chez J.F. Bassompierre, 1776. Contemporary calf, rebacked in complementary style, spine with gilt-stamped leather title and author labels and gilt-stamped compartment decorations; original leather acid-pitted and cracked over edges and extremities. Front pastedown with small bookseller's ticket from Albany, NY; free endpapers with a few stray pencilled notations. Dedication page with institutional rubber-stamp in lower margin.. 4to (24.9 cm, 9.8"). xxxi, [1], 411, [1] pp.; 51 plts. First edition: Treatise on ancient dress among the Egyptians, Greeks, Persians, Jews, Romans, and other people. The author, a Flemish artist also known as Andries Cornelis Lens, came to the study of antiquarian clothing by way of his classically inspired focus in painting. Illustrated with 51 copper-engraved plates done by Pitre Martenasie, this is an "Ouvrage estimé" according to Brunet (who seemingly mistakenly cites 57 engravings as opposed to the 51 given by von Lipperheide, described in institutional holdings, and present here).

        A General Map of the Middle British Colonies

      London, 1776. No Binding. Very Good. 19 x 26 inches. Original outline color; reinforced fold separation & wear, slight losses due to abrasion, mended split into surface; nice, dark printing impression; overall very good, especially for a map originally issued folded. A scarce, handsomely engraved edition of the great Evans map intended for use by British officers serving in the American Revolution. This edition appeared as both a separate and in a work called the American Military Pocket Atlas, styled the "Holster Atlas," as it was intended to provide a geographic overview for British officers being shipped off to battle the rebellious colonists. This was a new state, second issue, of the often-used Kitchin-Jefferys-Sayer plate but with significant changes (".so strangely altered as to be almost unrecognizable,"). An important improvement in this state was the expansion of the inset at upper left to contain all of the Great Lakes not already shown on the map proper. The shapes of Lake Ontario and Erie have also been updated, and the map was expanded to include some of Canada north of the lakes. Many of the other changes, especially in the Ohio area, reintroduced Evans' original delineations that were distorted in the earlier states of the present plate. Forts are shown in abundance in New York, especially in the Lake Champlain region, and in Pennsylvania. Roads and trails are also shown throughout.Stevens Map XV, see also XIV.

      T. Cadell Pamphlet, 8vo, stitched, uncut, 132 pp. Some small tears and chips at extremities, some soiling to title and final pages, normal aging and browning. Price (1723-1791) was a prominent philosopher and poltical radical. He was also a clergyman, and continued to preach until his death in 1791. Around 1758, he started to publish his political and moral views, and in 1776, wrote this pro American tract that defended American patriots. His pro American views even got him an invitation from Benjamin Franklin in 1778 to come to America to advise on financial matters.This was a very important work in its time, and was published in a number of editions, including editions in Philadelphia, New York and Boston.

        A Map of the Middle British Colonies In North America...March 25th, 1776

      London, 1776. No Binding. Near Fine. 19 1/8 x 32 inches.. Original outline color; minor marginal mends not affecting image; else excellent. Rare. This is by far the most important edition of the pioneering Evans map outside of the original one, which was called by Schwartz "the most ambitious performance of its kind undertaken in America up to that time." Of the numerous later editions of map, Pownall's was the only one to utilize the original plate and to have been authorized by Evans himself. In the upper left corner is a commendation of the map with Evans' engraved signature. Pownall's map is in fact a novel hybrid, consisting of Evans' original plate with a new plate for part of the Northeast appended to it. Pownall also significantly updated the original plate: "The whole of the map east of the longitude of Philadelphia is greatly changed, and is filled in with new details" (Stevens). Pownall, who had been governor of Massachusetts, stated that the New England section of the map was based on new information, "later Draughts and Surveys deposited at the Board of Trade" (Pownall's Topographical Description, in which the map was originally published). Sadly, Evans saw little profit from his groundbreaking map, in large part due to the numerous pirated editions of it by Jefferys, Sayer, Kitchen, Bowles and others. So moved was Pownall by the plight of the wronged and indigent Evans, who received no funds from the sale of the numerous piracies of his map, that he pledged all profits from his edition of the map to Evans' daughter.Stevens, H.

Skinnet på rygg och ytterfalsar ngt nött. Inlagan delvis tryckt på blåtonat papper. Enstaka lager- och småfläckar. En fuktfläck upptill i yttermarginalen på s. 31-32. Med Abr. Dahlgrens överstrukna namnteckning och Sten och Brita Westerbergs exlibris. Från Beatelund.. Bibliotheca Rudbeckiana 1512. Nya upplagor utkom 1783, 1820, 1833-34 etc. Dikten, som även översattes till danska, är ett komiskt epos som inspirerats av Hofmanska upproret i Västergötland 1766 och boråsarnas försvar mot Hofmans bondehär. Schück skriver i sin litteraturhistoria att "det, som särskilt tyckes hava roat Rudbeck, var det martialiska lynnet hos boråsarna" och menar att poemet "onekligen är en bland de bäst lyckade dikter, som finnas från denna tid." Olof Rudbeck den yngste (1750-77) var kanslist i Riksarkivet och sonsons son till "Atlanticans" författare. Han författade "Boråsiaden" som sjuttonåring, men omarbetade den av politiska skäl före utgivningen 1776

        De anima brutorum commentaria

      Firenze, Cajetan Cambiagi 1776.. 256 p., each in a decorative frame, 7 fine decorative initials with landscape backgrounds printed in sepia, engraved title with frame of birds' heads printed in blue and sepia, 8 engraved plates printed in blue, an uncut copy (214 x 140 mm), in an unusual and attractive binding of Italian paste-paper boards with a floral design, morocco label. Only edition, a handsome copy of an interesting book. Soldini, who is prepared to find qualities of intellect and character in the lowliest crustaceans, has seemed to readers to anticipate various intellectual currents of later times: vegetarianism, evolution, Gaia. Others are attracted to the very curious plates; the unusual colour printing adds to the charm. The three copies of which I have a detailed description (BL does not have it) differ slightly both in the order of the plates and in which parts are printed in blue, which in sepia. Ours has (logically, as it seems to me) a plate of an almost human ape among animals as frontispiece; the preface has a plate of animals and birds; chap.I prehistoric beasts; chaps.II and IV shellfish invading the land; chap.III animals and birds, incl. a dragon; chap.V animals and insects; chap.VI sea-creatures. vf21

        A Map of the most Inhabited part of New England containing the Provinces of Massachusets Bay and New Hampshire, with the Colonies of Connecticut and Rhode Island, Divided into Counties and Townships. The whole composed from Actual Surveys and its Situation adjusted by Astronomical Observations

      [Augsburg]: Tobias Conrad Lotter, [1776]. Hand-coloured engraving by T. C. Lotter, on four sheets. Good condition. Each sheet: 27 1/4 x 22 3/4 inches approx. One of the great maps of New England This large, intriguing map of New England was originally drawn by a shadowy figure named Braddock Mead, an Irishman and a geographer, who had to change his name to escape prosecution for kidnapping and related charges. He chose the name John Green and continued his geographical and cartographical work with several different publishers, ending up with Thomas Jefferys, the leading map publisher in London at that time. Only one map actually bears the name "J. Green", but there are characteristic traits to Mead/Green's maps that make the attributions fairly certain, and Jefferys states that he worked on "many of my Geographical performances..." G. R. Crone brought Green's identity to light in two Imago Mundi articles in the early 1950s. The map was the first large scale printed map of New England. Six different states of the map appeared in London between 1755 and 1794. This edition was engraved by Tobias Conrad Lotter, Matthew Seutter's son-in-law, in Augsburg, in 1776 based on the 4th state of the map. It is an exact copy of the Jefferys' map with the inset maps of Boston and of Boston Harbor and the vignette of the Pilgrims' landing at Plymouth in the cartouche. Interest in events taking place in New England in 1776 was of course intense, and the sharply drawn inset maps of Boston would have been especially appreciated. The map is rich in fascinating information for New Englanders, and it is displayed with great clarity. From a historical viewpoint, Mead's map shows the extent of European dominion in the region after a century and a half of settlement and growth. G. R. Crone, "John Green. Notes on a neglected Eighteenth Century Geographer and Cartographer," Imago Mundi, VI (1950) p. 89-91; Crone, "Further Notes on Braddock Mead, alias John Green..."

The map frontis to Part 1, is dated from 1777 and was probably from a later edition, it has a couple of small tears at creases. The title to Part 2, A Tour in Scotland. MDCCLXXII often causes confusion with the earlier tour because of the omission of the Voyage to the Hebrides to the title! (ESTC N27735. T113911. Allibone 1553.

        A Plan of the Attack of Fort Sulivan, near Charles Town in South Carolina. by a Squadron of His Majesty's Ships, on the 28th June 1776. with the Disposition of the King's Land Forces, and the Encampments and Entrenchments of the Rebels from the Drawings made on the Spot

      London: "Printed and sold by William Faden, Successor to the late Mr. Thomas Jefferies, Geographer to the King...", 10th August 1776. Copper- engraved map, engraved one-line dedication to Sir Peter Parker and letterpress text in two columns beneath the map. Inset plan of the fort. 20 7/8 x 16 1/2 inches. Extremely rare first issue of a separately- published Revolutionary War broadside battle plan depicting a critical altercation near Charleston, South Carolina. This highly important and finely engraved and letterpress broadside map captures the dramatic action surrounding the British naval assault on Fort Sullivan (called here "Sulivan"), the strategic key to Charleston. In the Spring of 1776, South Carolina had fallen into the firm possession of the Americans, a reality the British were determined to challenge. They dispatched a fleet of twenty ships (although only nine were armed) under Commodore Peter Parker, manned by marines, with the mission under the overall command of Maj. General Sir Henry Clinton. The ships moored in Five Fathom Hole, and landed on Long Island, which lay to the north of Sullivan's Island. Meanwhile, practical considerations indicated that the Patriot defenders were in considerable trouble. Led by Col. William Moultrie, the Americans were short of experienced troops and ammunition. Fort Sullivan, located on the southern tip of the island of the same name had to be held, otherwise Charleston would surely fall. While the elegant plan of the fort, located in the inset at the upper left of the map, makes it appear to be a well designed bastion, it was in reality cobbled together with palmetto logs. Moultrie had a total of 1,125 men against the 2,900 British marines. More worryingly, the fort had only 26 guns, with only 28 rounds of ammunition per gun against the British fleet's 270 well-stocked cannon.Fortunately for the Americans, the British proceeded to make a series of strategic errors. Clinton, who relied on information given by harbour pilots who were press-ganged into service, spent days looking for a non-existent ford between Long and Sullivan's Island, which in reality was prevented by the presence of a seven foot deep channel. This bought the Americans time, which allowed American Col. William Thomson to fortify the northern tip of the island, as indicated on the map.On June 28th, the British mounted their full on naval assault of the fort, as indicated on the map by the ships shown grouped together just off of the fort, with each ship being named and detailed with its number of guns. Moultrie wisely rationed and synchronized the use of his limited firepower, such that the British met heavier than expected resistance. Unfamiliar with the tidal shoals that lay near the fort, the British ships were unable to sail in close enough to the fort to deliver lethal blows, while remaining in range of the American guns. Amazingly, many of the British rounds which did strike the fort were harmlessly absorbed into the structure's spongy palmetto logs. The British flagship HMS Bristol took heavy losses, and another ship ran aground and had to be abandoned. Another British attempt to storm Thomson's northern positions with a raid by long boats was easily repelled. The British were forced to completely withdraw, and promptly set sail for New York.This copy is the very rare first state (of four known issues) of the map, which was the first Revolutionary battle plan to be drafted by William Faden. The text in two columns is found only on this issue and gives an account of the action taken from a letter by Parker to Lieutenant General Clinton. This issue was separately published as a broadside giving news of the battle to a British audience eager for information about the war; later issues, without text, appeared in Faden's North American Atlas. Nebenzahl, Atlas of the American Revolution, map 8; Nebenzahl, A Bibliography of Printed Battle Plans of the American Revolution 1775-1795, 64; Stevens & Tree, "Comparative Cartography," 14(a), in Tooley, The Mapping of America.

In 1790, he opened coal mines on his estate and leased enough land in Old Park to enable Thomas Botfield to build the Old Park ironworks there. Browne was one of the members of Parliament for Bridgnorth from 1784 to 1812, supporting the ministries of William Pitt the younger, Henry Addington, the Duke of Portland, and Spencer Perceval. , Contains an account of the Boston Massacre. The first "Dialogue" argues for reconciliation through repeal of the Quebec Act and the Boston-Charter Act. The second examines Lord Mansfield's argument on the power of the Crown to tax and makes laws for the Colonies. The third offers Baron Maseres' plan of reconciliation, amplified from the first "Dialogue." Lande 615, Dionne II 825. Gagnon I 658 TPL 521 . Sabin 45412. Maseres (1731-1824), London-born and Cambridge educated, became Attorney General of Quebec,1766-1769 and his intention with the Freeholder was to convey to the public a true representation of the sentiments of the French or Canadian inhabitants of the Province concerning the Quebec Act, and likewise to suggest some reasons for repealing not only that obnoxious Act but also the Act for altering the Charter of Massachusetts's Bay. The dialogue gives a good example of the sentiments of both Canadians and Americans towards those 2 Acts of Parliament. This dialogue, published covering three years between a British gentleman and a Catholic Canadian freeholder, talks about the political concerns of the American colonies. Maseres was one of the strongest Whig friends of the American colonies during the time of the Revolution. Boston Massacre reference on page 80
