        Miramichi Bay

      London 1777 - From The Atlantic Neptune. At the close of the French and Indian War, Des Barres, the most noted and skilled producer of coastal charts in late eighteenth-century England, was sent to America by the British Admiralty to survey the coasts of the Maritime Provinces. These provinces, so recently acquired from France, had never been adequately mapped, and using the most advanced hydrographic instruments available, Des Barres spent the next ten years constructing a series of charts of unparalleled accuracy and schematic beauty, of crucial importance for military maneuvers on the Northeast Coast. Ultimately the project was expanded to include the entire Atlantic and gulf coasts of North America. At the outset of the American Revolution, Des Barres was assigned the task of compiling his work -- and that of others surveying the coast and shorelines of North America -- into an atlas that would enable the British Navy and Merchant Marines to navigate safely in North American waters. Des Barres returned to England in 1774 and began to prepare his charts for publication. The collected charts appeared as the Atlantic Neptune, a magnificent work consisting of about 275 views, plans and charts, which is considered the first great marine atlas of the eastern seaboard, and by many the most splendid collection of charts ever published. Each volume was composed of charts selected for a particular purpose or mission and thus, no two sets are identical. Sheet size: 21 3/4 x 30 1/4".

Manca l'occhietto.  Rara edizione originale di questa rapppresentazione teatrale, la prima pubblicata dal Catani, cui segui' una seconda nel 1778, la Bianca Capello. Entyrambe vennero stroncate dall'ambito culturale fiorentino, tacciandole di eccessiva macchinosita' e scarsa inventiva da parte dell'autore. Queste due opere avrebbero dovuto inserirsi in un ciclo di sette tragiche feste teatrali, non vere e proprie tragedie ma una sorta di pieces macchinose, inframezzate di balli, ditirambi e cantate. Miglior fortuna il Catani ebbe con le imprese giornalistiche. Fondo' infatti, con il Ristori, il Giornale Fiorentino, foglio di carattere illuministico cui collaboro' Giovanni Ristori, e il Gionale enciclopedico. Timpanaro Morelli in: Diz. Biogr. ital.

Lisbon after the Earthquake anno 1755. From the University of California, Berkeley: "Historical Depictions of the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake Jan T. Kozak, Institue of Rock Mechanics, Czech Academy of Science Charles D. James, National Information Service for Earthquake Engineering Note: With permission, this paper is abridged and edited from drafts of a longer work in progress by V. S. Moreira, C. Nunes and J. Kozak on the Lisbon Earthquake of 1755. The images presented here are taken from the NISEE Kozak Collection of Images of Historical Earthquakes. Although not the strongest or most deadly earthquake in human history, the 1755 Lisbon earthquake's impact, not only on Portugal but on all of Europe, was profound and lasting. Depictions of the earthquake in art and literature can be found in several European countries, and these were produced and reproduced for centuries following the event, which came to be known as "The Great Lisbon Earthquake." The earthquake began at 9:30 on November 1st, 1755, and was centered in the Atlantic Ocean, about 200 km WSW of Cape St. Vincent. The total duration of shaking lasted ten minutes and was comprised of three distinct jolts. Effects from the earthquake were far reaching. The worst damage occurred in the south-west of Portugal. Lisbon, the Portuguese capital, was the largest and the most important of the cities damaged. Severe shaking was felt in North Africa and there was heavy loss of life in Fez and Mequinez. Moderate damage was done in Algiers and in southwest Spain. Shaking was also felt in France, Switzerland, and Northern Italy. A devastating fire following the earthquake destroyed a large part of Lisbon, and a very strong tsunami caused heavy destruction along the coasts of Portugal, southwest Spain, and western Morocco. The oscillation of suspended objects at great distances from the epicenter indicate an enormous area of perceptibility. The observation of seiches as far away as Finland, suggest a magnitude approaching 9.0. Precursory phenomena were reported, including turbid waters in Portugal and Spain, falling water level in wells in Spain, and a decrease in water flow in springs and fountains. Detailed descriptions of the earthquake's effects in Morocco, were, in some cases, based on Portuguese manuscripts written by priests. The cities of Meknes, Fez, and Marrakesh in the interior, and the coastal towns of Asilah, Larache, Rabat, and Agadir (Santa Cruz during the Portuguese occupation) suffered much damage in the quake. Mosques, synagogues, churches, and many other buildings collapsed in Meknes, where numerous casualties were reported. The convent, church, and Hospital de S. Francisco collapsed completely. Lisbon In 1755, Lisbon was one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The city retained some of its Moorish influence during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. This may be seen in the design of the streets in the quarters surrounding St. George Castle and extending as far as Rossio, the central part of the city. The Rosario, or main square, was the commercial center of Lisbon. The Estatus Palace, situated to the north, was where illustrious visitors to the Kingdom were lodged. On the east side, Saint Dominic Church and the All Saint's Royal Hospital, with its magnificent façade, were erected. On top of the hill, an ancient royal residence was situated. To the west, the church and its Convent were among the most magnificent buildings in Lisbon. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Interieur einer dreihalligen barocken Kirche mit mehreren Figuren.

      - Feder in Schwarz, grau laviert, über Bleistift, mit doppelter Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Bütten mit Fragment des Wasserzeichens: C & I Honig, rechts am Fuße einer Säule signiert und datiert „Johannes Franciscus Gout inv: et delin 1777.". 28,5:34,2 cm. Durchgehend etwas braunfleckig. Die Zeichnung stammt vermutlich noch aus der Zeit, in der Gout als Dekorationsmaler in Schloß Birkenfeld in Unterfranken tätig war. Des Malers und Radierers Gout früheste Arbeiten sind in Nürnberg nicht lange vor 1773 entstanden. 1773 und die folgenden Jahre war er in Schloß Birkenfeld tätig. 1780 war er Hofmaler in Bayreuth, 1782 wurde er von Goethes Freund, dem Kriegsrat Merck, an den Hof in Darmstadt empfohlen und scheint später Großherzogl. Hessen-Darmstädter Theatermaler geworden zu sein und war als solcher auch in Wiesbaden und Frankfurt am Main tätig. 1808 war er noch in Wiesbaden nachweisbar. Im Historischen Museum, Frankfurt am Main, befinden sich zwei Gemälde, Landschaften mit antiken Gebäuden, die ehemals aus dem Prehn’schen Kabinett stammen.

        Accurata Utopiae Tabula/Schlaraffenland, 1760, Lotter C.T.

      Lotter C.T., 1717-1777 - Accurata Utopiae Tabula/Schlaraffenland, 1760, Lotter C.T., sehr schönes Verlagskolorit, min. gebräunt, div. kleinere Randläsuren. Blattmaß: 55x66 cm. Das Schlaraffenland (von mhd. sluraff = Faulenzer; „Das Land der faulen Affen"; auch Schlarraffenland oder bei Hans Sachs Schlaweraffen Landt bzw. Schlauraffenlandt) ist ein fiktiver Ort aus diversen Märchen, in dem alles im Überfluss vorhanden ist. In den Flussbetten des Schlaraffenlands fließen Milch, Honig oder Wein statt Wasser (in Anspielung z. B. an Deuteronomium 6,3 (Dtn 6,3 LUT) und viele andere Stellen). Alle Tiere hüpfen und fliegen bereits vorgegart und mundfertig durch die Luft. Die Häuser bestehen aus Kuchen. Statt Steinen liegt Käse herum. Genießen ist die größte Tugend der Bewohner des Schlaraffenlands, harte Arbeit und Fleiß werden als Sünde betrachtet. Dem Alter wird mit dem Jungbrunnen abgeholfen, etwa: Welcher ein altes Weib hat / der schick sie auch mit in das Bad / sie baden kaum drey Tage / so wird ein junges Dirnige darauß / vngefehr bey achtzehen Jahren. Schlaraffenland wird deshalb heute meist übertragen verwendet, um auf ein Paradies des Nichtstuns und müßig essenden Herumliegens hinzuweisen. Die Idee als solche begegnet bereits in der Antike (griechische Komödie, Lukian, Herodot, Strabo). Bereits im 5. Jahrhundert v. Chr. gab es ähnliche Ideen bei den griechischen Dichtern Telekleides und Pherekrates (Gebratene Krammetsvögel mit kleinen Kuchen flogen Einem in den Schlund hinein). Auch die Schilderung der Aurea Aetas in Vergils 4. Ecloge weist bereits Züge der späteren Schlaraffensage auf, allerdings fehlt hier das Motiv des Überflusses und der Prasserei. Mitte des 13. Jahrhunderts entstand das französische Fabliau de Coquaigne, das in englischen und niederländischen Versionen bis ins 15. Jahrhundert fortlebte. Mitte des 14. Jahrhunderts beschreibt Boccaccio im Decamerone (3. Novelle des 8. Tages) ein Land namens Bengodi, in dem Wein, Würste, Käse und andere Delikatessen von Natur aus im Überfluss zur Verfügung stehen. In Deutschland taucht das Motiv im Fastnachtspiel des 15. Jahrhunderts auf, bevor es 1494 von dem Humanisten Sebastian Brant als Parodie auf das Paradies und als Kritik an der von einem zunehmend verweltlichten Klerus und funktionslos werdenden Adel geprägten feudalen Gesellschaft in seinem Narrenschiff (Kapitel 108) gestaltet wird.[2] Später wird es in einem Gedicht von Hans Sachs aufgegriffen. Eine kontinuierliche Tradition reicht in Texten und Bildern bis ins 19. Jahrhundert, als die Brüder Grimm mit Das Märchen vom Schlauraffenland, das sich weniger auf die kulinarischen Aspekte als allgemein auf die Thematik satirischen Rollentausches konzentriert, und Ludwig Bechstein (Das Märchen vom wahren Lügner in Deutsches Märchenbuch von 1845 und Das tapfere Bettelmännlein in Neues deutsches Märchenbuch) die heute bekannten Fassungen des Märchens schufen. Im bürgerlichen Zeitalter dient das Motiv der Durchsetzung des bürgerlichen Leistungsprinzips (Adel durch Tugend und Leistung) gegen angebliche Dekadenz des Geburtsadels. Erich Kästner lässt die Protagonisten seines Kinderbuches Der 35. Mai oder Konrad reitet in die Südsee durchs Schlaraffenland reisen.

        6 autograph letters signed and 1 letter with autogr. postscript signed ("Federic").

      Potsdam and Charlottenburg, [1777]-1785.. Mostly 4to. 3½ pp. on 8 ff. Folded.. Highly interesting collection of personal letters from the last years of the King's life. In French, to Eleonore de Maupertuis, lady-in-waiting to Princess Anna Amalia of Prussia, Frederick's youngest sister. Eleonore was the daughter of the well-esteemed Prussian diplomat, scholar, and translator Kaspar Wilhelm von Borck(e). In 1744 she had married the French mathematician and astronomer Pierre-Louis Moreau de Maupertuis, also a close confidant of Frederick's and head of the Prussian Academy of Science. After her husband's death in 1759 she concentrated on her office in the household of the Princess. - Since 1756 Anna Amalia of Prussia was titular Abbess of the Quedlinburg Convent but spent most of her time in Berlin. She is mainly remembered for her alleged affair with the Prussian officer and adventurer Friedrich von der Trenck. While the historicity of this anecdote is questionable, she was undoubtedly - and more importantly - one of the 18th century's few female composers of note. Her music collection ("Amalienbibliothek") contains many important prints and manuscripts, including the autograph of Johann Sebastian Bach's Brandenburg Concerts. She spent her last years in seclusion at Berlin, always remaining in close contact with her brother, who visited her regularly. She survived Frederick's death on 17 August 1786 by just a few months, passing away on 30 March 1787 (cf. MGG I, 486f. and T. Debuch, Anna Amalia von Preußen, Berlin 2001). - There are but few sources for the life of Anna Amalia, many of which are dubious (such as Trenck's autobiography) or focus on Frederick the Great (such as the diaries of Count Lehndorff). Thus, the King's present letters to Eleonore de Maupertuis constitute a unique source for the last years of the Princess. They reflect Frederick's concern for Amalia's health after she suffered a stroke in 1773 and underscore the close relationship between the siblings: "Je aprans Madame que ma bonne Soeur est incommodee, et comme je L'aime trop pour regarder Son etat avec Indiferance, je Vous prie de me rassurer et de me consoler [...]" (1777). - "Ma cher Madame, j'ai non recours a Vous pour ne point fatiguer ma bonne soeur, comme je suis oblige de ma rendre demain au Parc pour des affaires je me propose des profites en ces Voisinages pour rendre visite a ma bonne soeur [...]" (Charlottenburg, 2 May 1783). - "Je Vous prie Ma chere Madame, de conjurer ma soeur en mon nom de Voulloir prendre quelque Medecine, pour Luy facilliter L'expectoration [...]" (n. d.). - "Voici ma bonne Madame deux Sortes de Tabac pour ma bonne soeur [...]" (n. d.). - "Je vous prie Ma chere Madame, de m'envoyer Le Nom de soupes que Ma soeur mange avant diner, et une Liste des plats qu'elle aime et qui convienent le mieux en Sa sante [...]" (n. d.). - "Ma chere Madame, Ma soeur a eu La bonte d'envoyer ici un Valet de chambre pour avoir de mes Nouvelles [...]" (n. d.). - "Je vous suis bien oblige, des bonnes nouvelles que vous me donnez de la Sante de la Principe ma Soeur, par votre lettre endate d'hier [...]" (16 March 1785). - Most of the present letters are a quarter or half page in length; one bears a note by another hand on the reverse ("Potzdam, 1777, von I. M. d. König"). Only two are dated in full: "Charlottenburg ce 2 May 1783" and "a Potsdam le 16 de Mars 1785". The latter is written by a scribe's hand, with an autograph postscript and signature by the King. This is also the only letter formally addressed "a la Gouvernante de Maupertuis, nee de Borck, a Berlin". Content and form, however, prove that all letters are from the same time and to the same recipient. - All letters written in brown ink on fine, clean laid paper, most with posthorn watermark. Includes a browned folio sheet (watermark St. Wolfgang, pointing to Georg Friedrich Meyer's Röthenbach paper mill) with late 18th-c. caption: "Collection de Lettres de Frederic le Grand Roi de Prusse, de Sa main propre; a feüe Madame de Maupartuis Gouvernante de feüe la Princesse Amelie Soeur de ce Roi". - Exceptionally well-preserved collection.

        A Course of Lectures on Oratory and Criticism

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1777 First edition of Priestley's major treatise on rhetoric and critical theory. Quarter calf over marbled boards, rebacked to style. Six paneled, gilt-ruled spine with black morocco label. . Quarto. Complete with errata leaf and half-title. Intermittent light browning, intermittent light text soiling near top margin, Qq2 lightly wrinkled. few old ink marks in margin. Overall a very good, large copy. Some light shelf wear. Marbled endpapers. Intermittent offsetting and foxing. A very small portion of text missing from P3 due to a printing imperfection. A very good copy. Priestley's title is misleading, as he is not merely concerned with repeating the rhetorical rules set down by the ancients. The first page of his preface states that the lectures were published "partly with a view to the illustration of the doctrine of the association of ideas" and this gives them an interest that their title would never suggest. Priestley had for several years been interested in Hartley's ideas concerning associationism. In 1775 he published an edition of Hartley's Theory of the Human Mind on the Principle of the Association of Ideas, together with his own commentary. In his landmark work on eighteenth century aesthetics, The Sublime: A Study of Critical Theories in XVIII Century England, Samuel H. Monk points out: "Priestley's chief contribution to the discussion…is not so much a body of new ideas, as the fact that he applied definitely the psychology of Hartley to the problems of taste. In both his ideas and his associationism he is not unlike Gerard, but in his 'modern' approach to the subject he is a good example of the increasing tendency to take aesthetic problems into the mind of man and to look more carefully at the effect than at the object" (p. 119).
