        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. 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.

        A Sketch of the Operations of His Majesty's Fleet and Army Under the Command of Vice Admiral the Rt. Hble. Lord Viscount Howe and Gen./Sr.Wm. Howe, K.B. in 1776

      [London]: Des Barres, 1777. Copper-engraved and etched map with aquatint, hand-coloured, on watermarked: "Bates" laid paper. (Expertly repaired tears). A magnificent 1777 map of the sites of the Revolutionary War battles in and around New York City Des Barres' "Sketch" depicts the entire field of action for the latter half of 1776 in the battle for control of New York City and the Hudson River. The map, extending from Sandy Hook to Haverstraw, and Jamaica Bay to the western New Jersey establishes in detail the geographical setting for the war as it took place in this region, showing troop positions and strengths, fortifications and battle sites, as well as carefully delineated topographical details, roads, towns, even houses; shoals, banks, soundings in the bay and on the rivers; warships up and down the East River and Hudson. The sites of various embarkations and one of the first American Naval battles: the fire-ship attack on the Phoenix and the Rose are shown. The map also includes an inset of References, which is an index of all the major events from the initial invasion up to and including the battle at Fort Washington. After being forced to evacuate Boston, General Howe brought his army down to Staten Island for an assault on Brooklyn and New York. Howe and his brother, Admiral Richard Howe, built an armada, the largest British invading force in history to that point in time. The Continental Congress had determined that Washington should defend New York, despite the fact that he was outnumbered and his troops inexperienced. It is very much to Washington's credit that though he lost this sequence of battles, he did not lose the war. With the exception of the mistaken defense of Fort Washington, where 2,800 men surrendered, Washington kept his army intact to fight again. This was Howe's biggest chance as most of the Continental Army was at New York. The British invasion began on August 27, 1776 on the southwest end of Long Island. It was, from the British point of view, highly successful, by the end of August 29th, the Americans appeared to be trapped in Brooklyn Heights. However, the Americans quietly and famously escaped, fleeing up Manhattan, while the British slowly pursued them. Washington then left Manhattan for Westchester where he evaded the British until they met in White Plains. There Howe fought a tepid battle and was not able or unwilling to inflict the kind of blow that might have ended the war. After Washington withdrew, Howe returned to Manhattan to take Fort Washington. Cornwallis occupied Fort Lee on the opposite shore. Washington withdrew to New Jersey and then crossed the Delaware to Pennsylvania. These are the events that took place on the geographical setting handsomely portrayed in this fine map. "One of the greatest of the 'Atlantic Neptune' charts, with the best topographical information on the lower Hudson River valley, western Long Island and Staten Island," according to Nebenzahl. Considering the large, elephant folio scope of the map, it is incredibly precise and well-informed. As with Des Barres' greatly esteemed sea charts, this map brings to the study of military events his apparently inexhaustible capacity for detail. The Atlantic Neptune was the first British sea atlas of the North American colonies, and due to Des Barres' synergy of great empirical accuracy with unrivalled artistic virtue, it is considered to be one of the most important achievements of eighteenth-century cartography. Upon the conclusion of the Seven Year's War, Britain's empire in North America was greatly expanded, and this required the creation of a master atlas featuring new and accurate sea charts for use by the Royal Navy. Des Barres was charged with this Herculean task, publishing the first volume in London in 1775, which was soon followed by further volumes. Des Barres' monumental endeavor eventually featured over two-hundred charts and aquatint views, many being found in several states. This is the only known state of the map. This copy with the land elements with original wash colour, the water elements with later colour. Provenance : The Captain "Larry" Sneden house is located in legendary Snedens Landing on the western bank of the Hudson River. The house, an authentic Dutch colonial, was built at an historically important point both before and after the American Revolution. A ferry ran from Dobb's Ferry on the Westchester side to Snedens Landing from the early 1700's through the early1960's. Washington and his troops crossed here during the early days of the Revolution. Nebenzahl 99; Seller and van Ee 1057; National Maritime Museum 122.

        Essays . sur la recherche de la cause pour laquelle l'estain et le plomb augmentent de poids quand on les calcine. Nouvelle édition revue sur l'exemplaire original & augmentée sur les manuscrits dela Bibliothèque du Roi, & des Minimes de Paris, avec des notes, par M. Gobet.

      Paris, Ruault, 1777 - 8vo (198 x 115 mm), pp xxxii 216, with two engraved plates in text; printed on blue paper, a fine copy in contemporary French mottled calf, corners worn, presentation inscription on front free endpaper 'Pres. de M. Almquist Chr[istians]borg'. £2850Second edition; the first (Bazas 1630) is known in only a few copies and is unobtainable. This was the first work to identify the role of air in the increase of weight of metals in calcination, thereby anticipating Lavoisier by some 150 years; it also refuted the phlogiston theory.'His fame rests solely on his Essays ., a reply to apothecary Pierre Brun's request for an explanation of why tin and lead increased in weight when heated. The "heaviness" of air explained the increased weight on calcination; it resulted from the attachment of air that had been rendered denser, heavier, and in some measure adhesive by the vehement and long-continuing heat of the furnace. Ray's only experiment appears in the sections of the Essays dismissing other possible explanations for the weight increase.'The Essays created some contemporary reaction, but its intrinsic interest lies in its anticipation of Lavoisier's recognition in 1772 that calcination involves combination with air. In 1775 Pierre Bayen drew attention to the Essays, and Lavoisier initially believed the work to be a forgery. Later, however, he spoke of it with admiration' (DSB).The publication of this edition was the result of Pierre Bayen's discovery of the first edition in 1775. The editor Gobet added to the original text the correspondence of Rey and Mersenne, Moitrel d'Elément's essay on air and water and Chérubin d'Orléans' dissertation on the impermeability of glass.Cole 1111; Duveen p 505; Hoover 683; Partington II pp 631-6

        Plan, Elevation, and Profile of an Organ in the Music Room

      London, 1777. Copper engraving. Engraved by Dom. Gunego. In excellent condition.

      London: Pr. for Fielding & Walker by Henri Lion 4to (27.2 cm, 10.75"). 2 vols. I: Frontis., 719, [1] pp. (lacking list of subscribers); 44 (1 fold.) plts., 7 maps (1 fold.).

Josephus (b. A.D. 37) provides one of the very few non-biblical sources of Jewish history; the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, though noting the author's lack of prestige among Talmudic rabbis and his tendency to "omit and add" where he saw fit, says, "Writing a history of the Jews which non-Jews would read and believe, Josephus was an innovator in bringing together references to the Jews to be found in non-Jewish histories" (1942 ed., VI, 200). The 1910 edition of the Catholic Encyclopedia adds that these works are "our only sources for many historical events . . . the value of the statements is enhanced by the insertion of dates which are otherwise wanting, and by the citation of authentic documents which confirm and supplement the Biblical narrative." The two volumes are illustrated with a total of => 69 copper-engraved plates (out of 70 called for), including a number of maps, all engraved by several different hands after the work of various artists. Period-style quarter mottled calf with marbled paper–covered sides, leather edges blind-tooled, spines with gilt-stamped leather title-labels and gilt-stamped compartment decorations.

The vastly superior British forces were in pursuit, looking for the opportunity to annihilate the disorganized American army and effectively snuff out the American rebellion in a single blow. The campaign involved complex amphibious landings by the British in the Bronx and Westchester, reprising the type of maneuvers that led to the overwhelming success of the British in the Battle of Brooklyn the previous month.

        Disertacion apologetica a favor del privilegio, que por costumbre introducida por la Bula de la santa cruzada goza la Nacion Española en el uso de los oratorios domesticos, leida, en la Real Academia de buenas letras de Sevilla en 25. de octubre de 1771.

      En Sevilla: Por D. Josef Padrino Small 4to (18.5 cm; 7.25"). [1] f., 104 pp.. [colophon, 1777] Our author was the "cura mas antiguo del Sagrario de [Sevilla], examinador Synodal de su arzobispado, comisario y revisor de libros del Santo Oficio, academico numerario," and the "censor de dicha Real Academia." His work was. first read before the Real Academia on 25 October 1771 but because of delays in obtaining the necessary licenses to print it, publication was delayed until 1777. In this work of canon law and Catholic Church customs and practices, Baquero studies the privilege that the Bull of the Holy Crusade granted the Spanish nation regarding oratories in private residences; it applied not only to Spain but to colonies as well. The first of three, this edition was published by "un amigo del author." The other editions appeared in 1781 AND 1861. Only one U.S. library reports ownership of either the 1777 or 1781 edition. It should be noted that there is NO 1771 edition, despite Palau and online cataloguing; cataloguers have simply failed to look at the last page of the supposed 1771 edition to see that the colophon is dated 1777. This offers one very pretty large initial and some modestly nice work with type ornaments. Contemporary limp vellum, a bit missing from back cover; evidence of ties, and binding with light dust-soiling. Lacking rear free endpaper. A clean, nice copy.

        Der chursächsische Finanz=Staat, in der neuesten Zeit, mit einem historischen Anhange

      Halle, Joh.Jac.

Erste und einzige Ausgabe, sehr selten. Es handelt sich um einen Abdruck aus dem Magazin für neuere Historie und Geographie, zu dem Büsching bedeutende politisch-statistische Beiträge lieferte. Anton Friderich Büsching (1724-1793) war Theologe, Professor für Philosophie sowie Historiker und Geograph. In seiner Vorrede schreibt er: "Diese Nachrichten von dem chursächsischen Finanzstaat in der neuesten Zeit stehen im elften Theil meines Magazins: man hat aber geglaubet, daß es Liebhabern solcher Materien, welche das Magazin nicht besitzen, angenehm seyn werde, wenn man eine kleine Anzahl besonderer Abdrücke von denselben veranstalte.

        [PRINTED LOYALTY OATH FROM REVOLUTIONARY-ERA NEW YORK, COMPLETED IN MANUSCRIPT]

      Albany, 1777. Old fold lines, minor soiling and foxing. Extensively docketed on verso. Very good. A printed loyalty oath, completed in manuscript, declaring Edward Morrison of a New York Continental Army regiment to be a faithful servant of the United States. The text reads as follows, with the manuscript portions in brackets: "[I Edward Morrison], Soldier inlisted by [Capt Ten Eyck] in the Regiment commanded by Colonel [Van Schaick] belonging to the State of [New York] in the Service of the United States of America; do swear, to be true to the said united States, and to serve them, honestly and faithfully, against all their Enemies and Opposers whatsoever; and to observe and obey, the Orders of the Continental Congress, and the Orders of the Generals and Officers set over me by them. So help me God. Sworn before me, at Albany, in the State of New-York, this [first] Day of [March] 177[7]. [J Roorbach, justice of the peace]". The oath is docketed on the verso by Ten Eyck, certifying the veracity of the person of Edward Morrison, dated March 4th, followed by a note signed by Gen. John Lansing stating that Morrison passed muster the same date. John Lansing (1754-1829) was an Albany lawyer who served for a time as Gen. Philip Schuyler's military secretary, then later as a representative in the state assembly. He was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in 1787, but left without signing, having become strongly Anti-Federalist and opposed to the centralization of the government. A scarce and ephemeral piece of Revolutionary history.

        BESKRIFNING OFVER DE ENGELSKA COLONIERNE I NORD-AMERICA; UTDRAGEN AF DE TILFORLATLIGASTE ARBETEN, SOM I DETTA AMNE UTKOMMIT I ENGLAND AREN 1776 OCH 1777

      Stockholm, 1777. Contemporary plain stiff wrappers. Paper soiled, torn along spine. Early ownership signatures on front pastedown. Quite clean and neat inside. Very good. In a half morocco box. A little-known and scarce Swedish guide to the American colonies, issued in the early years of the Revolution. Each of the thirteen colonies is discussed in its own section, with details on counties and towns, early exploration, colonization and history, climate, inhabitants, and more. The formerly Swedish colony of Delaware gets surprisingly little attention. The very interesting (and apparently quite scarce) Revolutionary map is entitled "Seat of War in America 1777" in English and Swedish, but is otherwise all in English. It has a small inset of the entire East Coast, but the main part of the map shows the region from the Chesapeake Bay up to Massachusetts and New Hampshire. It is a well-drawn map, the focus of which is the location of forts and large landholdings. OCLC locates a total of ten copies. Scarce.

        Herrn Georg Arnaud, ... Anatomisch=Chirurgische Abhandlung über die Hermaphroditen. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt. Nebst sechs Kupfertafeln

Tafeln mit 12 meist kolorierten Kupfern, Lesebändchen. Sehr gutes Exemplar! Arnaud de Rosnil (1698-1774), bedeutender französischer Chirurg, Mitglied der Académie Royale de Chirurgie de Paris und der Corporation of Surgeons of London, hatte 1768 eine \"Dissertation sur les hermaphrodites\" veröffentlicht, die hier in erster deutscher Übersetzung (von Johann Georg Krünitz?) vorliegt. Nach seiner Auffassung, die eine bedeutende Rolle im Hermaphroditismus-Diskurs der Aufklärungszeit spielte, sei ein Wesensmerkmal die gemischtgeschlechtliche Anatomie der Genitalien (die in den Abbildungen auch detailliert gezeigt werden). Diderot übernahm die meisten Abbildungen in den Artikel \"Hermaphrodite\" im Ergänzungsband der Encyclopedie (1777), vertrat jedoch die Überzeugung, dass spätestens die Sektion das unter der angeblichen Doppelgeschlechtlichkeit verborgene wahre Geschlecht aufdecken würde.- Hirsch-H. I, 205 - Wellcome II, 58 (nur engl. Übers.) - Libr. of the Karolinska Inst. 128f.: \"The above work is considerably enlarged with an account of the defence of Anne Grandjean, also known by the name of Johann Baptist Grandjean, a case regarding a hermaphrodite which was discussed not only in Paris but all over Europe... Even if fanciful illustrations of hermaphrodites had occured several times in books and prints, the figures in Arnaud\'s work and the two copperplates by Moreau le Jeune seem to be the earliest depictions in printed form of this phenomena drawn d\'après nature.\" - Sehr selten!

Karte und dem äußerst seltenen, in zwei Farben gedruckten Orig.-Vorderumschlag. 4°. Buntpapier-Pappbd im Stil d. Z.

      Leipzig, Breitkopf, 1777. - Der erste der drei Versuche Breitkopfs, Landkarten im Buchdruck aus einzelnen typographischen Elementen herzustellen. "A description of an invention for printing maps with movable type. Breitkopf claimed to have been the inventor of map printing by use of types, or what is known as 'typometry' ." (Bigmore-Wyman 81). "Seine Bestrebungen, die Technik der Druckkunst, deren tiefen Verfall er erkannt hatte, zu heben, sind von Epoche machendem Erfolge gewesen. 1754 gelang ihm der Wurf, den Satz von theilbaren und beweglichen Notentypen . herzustellen . Kurz nach Erfindung der Musikcharaktere entwarf B. den Plan, Landkarten typographisch herzustellen, doch hatte er erst 1777, durch Rivalen angeregt, in der Schrift 'Ueber den Druck der geographischen Karten‘ hierüber gehandelt. Wohl bewußt, daß eine praktische Verwerthung der Erfindung in großem Stile nicht möglich sei, verwandte er, nachdem der hingeworfene Gedanke eines Schulatlas aufgegeben war, derartige Karten nur als gelegentliche Beigabe zu Büchern und für selbstverfaßte Gelegenheitsscherze, so zur ‚Beschreibung des Reichs der Liebe‘, einem Hochzeitsscherz ." (ADB III 298 f.). Der Orig.-Vorderumschlag mit typographischem Rahmen. In der Mitte eine große, blau gedruckte Holzschnittvignette mit einer Allegorie der Künste. – Gutes, äußerst breitrandiges Exemplar. Die Karte "Gegend um Leipzig" dat. 1776. – Bigmore-W. I 81.

        Livre D'Eglise Conforme aux Breviaire & Missel de Soissons.

      [?Soissons, France] 1777 - "Both the Mass and the Divine Office contained prayers and chants that were recited or sung daily. Other components changed according to the liturgical day, season or feast. The fixed elements were known as the Ordinary – a term applied more frequently to the Mass than to the Office – while the latter was known as the Proper. The ‘Proper of the Time’ (Lat. Temporale) was organized around the liturgical year, which began on the first Sunday of Advent, four weeks before Christmas, and closed with the last Sunday of Pentecost. The Proper of the Time included what were known as ‘feasts of the Lord’, mainly commemorations of events in the life of Christ. The Proper of the Saints (Lat. Sanctorale) commemorated the feast-days of individual martyrs and saints celebrated on fixed dates of the calendar. The Sanctorale varied to a certain extent from place to place and incorporated formularies for local feasts that were not universally observed." Joseph Dyer in Grove Music Online.Pierre Devaux, the copyist, was probably a singer at the Abbey of Saint Léger in Soissons, France, an ancient town located about 100 miles north of Paris; the Abbey was founded in 1070.
