        Nouvelle Carte des Côtes des Carolines, Septentrionales et Meridionales de Cap Fear a sud Edisto. Levees et Sondees par N. Pocock en 1770

      Chez le Rouge, Rue des Grands Augustins, Paris 1777 - A very rare nautical chart of the Carolina coast, and one of the most important maps relating to France's participation in the Revolutionary War. This very finely engraved sea chart was produced by the prominent Parisian cartographer Georges Louis Le Rouge for use by the French Navy, which entered the Revolutionary War the year after this map was printed. It embraces the coast of the Carolinas from Cape Fear, North Carolina, all the way down to South Edisto Island in South Carolina. The map also depicts the pictorial outlines of the key ports of Charleston and Georgetown. This chart was included in Le Rouge's Atlas Amériquain Septentrionale , and as the title suggests was based on manuscript charts produced by Nathaniel Pocock. Curiously, the identity of Pocock or the location of any of his charts has remained an enigma for historians. Nevertheless, the map features relatively advanced hydrographic information, including depth soundings and bearing lines to major landmarks and lighthouses. The chart features seven very attractive mariner's views of the coast, and the sea is embellished with two frigates under full sail and is traversed by rhumb lines that radiate from a compass rose. Examples of this chart would have been used at sea by French officers, as their navy engaged British ships on numerous occasions off the Carolina coast. Phillips, A List of Geographical Atlases in the Library of Congress, 1210, map 13, Sellers & Van Ee, 1398. Copper-engraved sea chart, with wide margins, in excellent condition.

        Map, Revolutionary War Era, Colonial America): Theatre de la Guerre en Amerique

      le Rouge, Paris 1777 - Very good/excellent, hand colored outlines, trimmed a bit close at margin (due to binding in prior Le Rouge atlas, "Atlas Ameriquain Septentrional."). Image measuring 62 x 50 cm (24 x 20 inches). This is a clean impression on heavy paper. Three insets: Louisiane, southeast coastal region (Floride), Sault du Niagra. "Par le Sr. le Rouge, ingenieur geographe du Roy." appears after title in upper margin. This is McCorkle entry 777.14, without the "Corrigee.M. Hawkins.". Apparently Le Rouge reworked his early map (Canada et Louisane.) of 1755, and changed the title for this work (McCorkle entry 755.23). Not in Nebenzahl, although several other maps from this atlas appear in the references. The map is cataloged in OCLC.

      Philadelphia: Printed and Sold by Styner and Cist, [1777]. - pp.[9]-24. Dbd. Light stains on title and last leaf. Good. The very rare second part of the series by Paine which eventually stretched to thirteen numbers, written to boost the morale of American troops. Dated "Philadelphia, January 13, 1777" on page 24. Only the first five parts were separately printed as pamphlets, the rest being given directly to newspapers. This second part of THE AMERICAN CRISIS is directly addressed to Lord William Howe, the British commander in North America who though he had the upper hand militarily, had allowed Washington to evacuate New York, and had suffered recent defeats to the Americans at Trenton and Princeton. Paine mocks Howe and his demands on the American populace to cease their rebellion. Paine writes: "By what means, may I ask, do you expect to conquer America? If you could not effect it in the summer when our army was less than yours, nor in the winter when we had none, how are you to do it? In point of generalship you have been outwitted, and in point of fortitude outdone." The separate pamphlet editions of THE AMERICAN CRISIS, all of which are rare, were printed in various cities and towns. The older references, such as Evans and Howes, describe the Philadelphia printings of Parts I-III, but later findings by Edwin Wolf 2nd and R.W.G. Vail have uncovered other early editions of this historical American political work. See especially Wolf's explanation of the various Philadelphia editions of the first three parts of THE AMERICAN CRISIS printed by Styner and Cist ("Evidence Indicating the Need for Some Bibliographical Analysis of American-Printed Historical Works" in PBSA 63 [1969], pp.266-68).

        British Dominions in America agreeable to the Treaty of 1763: Divided into the several Provinces and Jurisdictions

      Andrew Dury, London 1777 - Rare Revolutionary-war separate issue of Kitchen's map of North America. This map, in various forms, was issued by Kitchin following the French and Indian War and into the 1780s. Kitchen, who engraved the Mitchell map, closely follows that famed mapping, though in a reduced form. The colonies are shown from Labrador in the North to Florida in the south, and as far west as the other side of the Mississippi, which is marked "Extensive Meadows full of Buffaloes." This copy is a rare separately-issued example in case map format. A similar map by Kitchen would appear in 1780 and 1782 editions of Guthrie's New System of Modern Geography (See McCorkle 780.6), though with the inset border and cartouche changed. We find only the Clements Library copy of this rare war-dated separate issue. Not in Phillips, A List of Maps of America or McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps. Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline. Dissected into 16 sections and linen-backed as issued. Inset of the tip of Florida.

        Mexico or New Spain

      Thomas Kitchen, London 1777 - Thomas Kitchen, Mexico or New Spain, Copperplate Engraving with Original Hand-Color London, 1777. $1,500. This map was engraved by Kitchen to illustrate Dr. Robertson's History of America, one of the most popular works on America during the period, which was reproduced in a number of editions and languages over a 35 year period. The map reflects the contemporary commercial cartography of 1777, the date of first publication of the map, immediately before the Jesuit expansion into Upper California began to yield cartographic details. The map shows nice detail in Southern Arizona and New Mexico, and reflects contemporary thoughts on Baja California. While Texas is a bit sparce in its interior, the map is consistent with the best commercial material published in Europe. Arader Galleries stocks the largest inventory in the world of Natural history watercolors, engravings, woodcuts, lithographs, color plate books and reference books on this subject.

        Nouveaux voyages dans l'Amérique septentrionale contenant une collection de lettres écrites sur les lieux, par l'auteur, à son ami M. Douin, Chevalier, Capitaine dans les troupes du Roi, ci-devant son camarade dans le Nouveau Monde.

      Changuion - Chez Changuion, A Amsterdam (Paris), 1777, 1 vol. in-8 plein veau du temps, 5 nerfs, XVI-392pp et 4 planches hors-texte dont une dépliante, dessinées par Gabriel de Saint-Aubin et gravées par J. B. Louvion, figure gravée en tête de la dédicace à Monseigneur Philippe de Limbourg. Pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, dos orné. Edition originale rare de ce troisième voyage de Bossu. L’auteur fut l’un des premiers voyageurs qui fit connaître la Louisiane et ses habitants. Bossu exécuta par ordre du gouvernement français trois voyages dans ces pays. Une première fois en 1750-1757, en Louisiane où il séjourna chez les Indiens Illinois et Arkhansas, puis à la Nouvelle-Orléans. Pour son deuxième voyage en 1757-1763, Bossu fut affecté à une mission au fort Alabamas.

        Al Nobile Uomo il Sig. Giambattista Collicola (Vaso antico di Basalte ritrovato in piu)

      Rome 1777 - The watermark that appears is number 59 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1169 and is dated between the 1770s to 1790'sThis plate is the from the series "Vasi, candelabri, cippi, sarcofagi, tripodi, lucerne. . .)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: Th
