        Two Chimney-pieces in the Great Withdrawing-room and the Countess of Derby's Dressing-room

      London: 1777. Engraving by J. Zucchi. In excellent condition. 17 1/4 x 23 1/8 inches. 19 1/4 x 26 1/4 inches. An elegant engraving depicting two chimneys in Lord Derby's celebrated house in Grosvenor Square, London. 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 changed the prevailing feel of the city and established their brand of neo- Classicism as the model of elegance and importance. It is asserted that the brothers originated the concept of the uniform facade attached to the typical English row house, an architectural device that distinguishes London buildings. This monumental contribution is evidenced in the Adams' designs for Portland Place and Fitzroy Square, and these were used as architectural models for the whole city. The brothers brought their talents into other areas by designing furniture to complement their beautiful interiors and by creating and publishing a treatise of design entitled 'Works in Architecture'. The work was published in three volumes over an extended span of time, beginning in 1773, with the final volume being published posthumously in 1822. Cf. Brunet I.47; cf. Lowndes I, p.8; DNB; Wilton-Ely, The Mind and Art of Giovanni Battista Piranesi.

      Sive Thormodi Torfæi notæ posteriores in seriam regum Daniæ, epistolæ latinæ, & index in seriam regum Daniæ. Ex manuscritptis legati Magnæani. Köpenhamn, A. H. Godiche, 1777. 4:o. Grav. porträtt,+ XXVI,+ 183,+ (blank),+ (49) s.+ utvikbar tryckt tabell (paginerad 184). Häftad, oskuren och ouppsprättad i samtida gråpappersomslag. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek.

Detta verk trycktes om 1705 med en ny titel: "Universa septentrionis antiqvitates". Enligt Warmholtz ett oumbärligt arbete för utredande av Nordens äldsta historia. Till 1705-års upplaga utlovades en komplettering, vilket dock först här 1777 utgavs av Hannes Finnasson och Jón Jónsson. I P. F. Suhms förord återfinns en redogörelse över verket av Jón Eiriksson. Thormod Torfaeus (1636-1719) var isländsk historiker, och från 1682 historiograf över kungariket Norge. Han föddes utanför Reykjavik och kunde i sin forskning bygga mycket på isländska källor. Hans stora huvudverk var en historia över Norge, "Historia rerum Norvegicarum", som utkom 1711

Del II delvis med en liten bruntonad fläck i nedre marginalen. Från Ericsberg.. Rochedieu Bibliography of French translations s. 316-17. Voogd A bibliography of Sterne in French s. 103 respektive 105. De första två delarna är översatta av Frénais, de senare två av Charles F. De Bonnay. "The life and opinions of Tristram Shandy" utkom 1759-67 i åtta delar och den första franska delöversättningen trycktes redan 1760. Frénais var först med en fransk översättning i två band av originalets första fyra delar och den trycktes 1776, varpå följde detta omtryck. Dessa kompletterades först 1785 av De Bonnays översättning i två band av originalets del V-VIII. Samma år utkom ytterligare en översättning av del V-VIII av De la Beaume. Denna anses vara bättre än De Bonnays, men det var Frénais och De la Beaumes bägge översättningar som kom att bli standardutgåvan av "Tristram Shandy" på franska under de följande 50 åren
