      London, 1777. Sheet size: 32 x 24 inches. Paper repair along center fold. Minor repairs in margins. In good condition. The first state of one of the finest and most celebrated maps of New Jersey, made during the Revolutionary War. This elegant composition depicts New Jersey in finely engraved detail at a large scale of seven miles to an inch. The map was the grandest representation of the state made up to that time, taking in the entire breadth of the state, as well as the Hudson Valley, most of Long Island, eastern Pennsylvania, and all of Delaware Bay. It captures the state's rich topography, including the Jersey Highlands and the Palisades in the north and the broad Pine Barrens and coastal marshes in the south. The county divisions, major roads and towns are all carefully depicted, indicating that New Jersey was, by the standards of the time, heavily populated, having over 120,000 inhabitants. Faden based his rendering of the state largely on the manuscript works of Bernard Ratzer, a British military surveyor most famous for his map of New York City. Ratzer's rendezvous with New Jersey cartography stemmed from the resolution of the bitter boundary dispute between that state and New York that had raged for over a century. In 1764, George III charged Samuel Holland and William De Brahm with settling the boundary, and their demarcation was finally surveyed by Ratzer in 1769. Ratzer's line is noted on the map as "The boundary settled by commissioners in 1769." Two of Ratzer's New Jersey manuscripts, one dealing with the boundary question, and another featuring Monmouth and Ocean Counties, are today preserved in the Faden Collection at the Library of Congress. Faden supplemented Ratzer's work with surveys of the northern part of the state made by Gerard Bancker. Curiously, it seems that Bancker's work found its way to Faden, by way of John Murray, the Earl of Dunmore, the former governor of Virginia, who was given a draft by Bancker when he stopped in at New York on his way back to London. An interesting feature present on the map are the two lines bisecting the state, being the boundary lines between the archaic colonies of East and West Jersey. In 1664, Charles II granted the New Jersey charter jointly to Lord Berkeley and Sir George Carteret. Berkeley sold his share to John Fenwick, a Quaker who, in turn, passed it on to a consortium that included William Penn. The King elected to renew only Carteret's charter to the colony, and from 1676 the already small province was split into two awkward colonies. One of the lines present on this map is "Keith's Line" referring to the 1687 demarcation of the boundary by surveyor George Keith. While the two colonies were reunited under a royal governor in 1702, certain private land ownership questions predicated on the partition necessitated that an internal line of division persist, which was redemarcated as the "Lawrence Line" in 1743. The map is embellished with a very fine cartouche, formed by trees framing a bucolic scene inhabited by farm houses and raccoons. The lower left of the map is adorned with a table of astrological observations. This copy is an excellent example of this important map, featuring a strong impression and good margins.

      Philadelphia, 1777. 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 II 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).

      Boston, 1777. Half title. Dbd. Light soiling and foxing. Small hole in half title, not affecting text; repaired with contemporary paper on verso. About very good. In a cloth slipcase. Hichborn delivered the seventh annual oration on the anniversary of the Boston Massacre, following such eminences as John Hancock and Joseph Warren, who preceded him in earlier years. Hichborn, a Bostonian fairly radical in his politics, proclaims that civil liberty is "not 'a government by laws' made agreeable to charters, bills of rights or compacts, but a power existing in the people at large, at any time, for any cause, or for no cause, but their own sovereign pleasure, to alter or annihilate both the mode and the essence of any former government, and adopt a new one in its stead." This was the first Boston Massacre oration after the declaration of independence. The text concludes with a five-stanza poem in honor of George Washington. Scarce.

      [Germany, 1777. All mounted to old cardstock, some toning and edge wear, almost all with pinholes, some with the printed sequence number trimmed away, short jagged tear to one example. Overall good. A collection of twenty-six panels from the famous and monumental series of woodcuts commissioned by Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I and commonly known as THE TRIUMPHAL PROCESSION or THE TRIUMPH OF MAXIMILIAN I. This massive undertaking to celebrate in woodcut the achievements of the young emperor resulted in a continuous woodcut image that measures approximately 177ft. when all 139 images are placed in sequence. Between 1512 and until Maximilian's death in 1519, numerous skilled artists of the day created woodblock images for the TRIUMPH, including Hans Burgkmair, Albrecht Dürer, Albrecht Altdorfer, Hans Springinklee, Leonard Beck, Hans Schäufelein, and Wolf Huber. The text to accompany the book was personally dictated by Maximilian to his secretary, Marx Treitzsaurwein. It is from this text that we know the subjects and settings for each of the individual woodcuts. Hans Burgkmair was the chief artist responsible for the TRIUMPH. Burgkmair was the leading painter and draughtsman in the wealthy city of Augsburg, and of all of Maximilian's artists, Burgkmair was the most important in adapting his talents to the service of the Emperor. He is best remembered for his graphic work including Biblical illustrations, book illustrations, coats of arms, and ornaments. Burgkmair drew sixty-six of the 137 woodcuts for the TRIUMPH, accounting for nineteen of the twenty-six woodcuts here. Six of the remaining seven woodcuts in this collection were accomplished by Albrecht Altdorfer (numbers 73, 74, 75, 76, 78, and 85), attributed to him by the critic Joseph Meder in 1932 on stylistic grounds. Number 126 is attributed to Hans Schäufelein. Because the portions of some of the woodcuts with banner plaques are supposed to have inscriptions but are printed in solid black (as in numbers 73-76, and others below), these examples were printed from the original woodblocks in either the 1520s or ca. 1777. The cutting of the inscriptions on these woodblocks was completed after the second edition in 1777 but before the edition of 1796. So, these woodcuts are most likely from the 1777 second edition based on paper stock, overall appearance, and for differences in the numbers printed on some examples as they relate to the first edition strikes. The woodcuts present here are especially interesting for their depiction of peoples, animals, and costumes from exotic lands. The two-panel scene composed of numbers 21 and 22 shows a giant camel pulling two men playing organs. The giant African or Asian elephant in the penultimate number is exquisitely handled, and punctuates the two panels present here that depict the exotic peoples of Calicut, a port city on the Malabar coast of southern India. Portuguese ships had first reached Calicut in 1506 and the colony of goad established in 1511, so their appearance represents peoples as exotic as New World natives would have been. Largely, these people are represented as little more than savages, wearing loin cloths, animal skins, grass skirts, or no clothing, carrying primitive weaponry, and juxtaposed with their animals in a more intimate manner than in the more "civilized" people represented in the other woodcuts, carrying monkeys and birds, and walking amongst their cows and sheep. Several examples present here can be conjoined to make two-, three-, or four-panel displays. Numbers 41 and 42 connect jousters to the chief jousting official who bears their banner, the beginning panels of the jousting section of the display. Numbers 44 and 45 connect Italian jousters with their standard bearer. Numbers 47- 49 also connect jousters in a three-panel display showing high-saddled jousters, those in leg armor, and still more Italian jousters with rounded handguards. The most continuous display achievable with this selection is a four-panel representation of horsemen from the Austrian hereditary territories from Duino to various foreign inheritances. The twenty-six woodcuts included here are as follows (all numbers referencing the Dover publication, followed by the number printed on the image, if one can be ascertained): 1) Number 11. Wilhelm von Greyssen, the chief boar hunter, on horseback with five wild boars trailing him. 2) Number 13. Herr Diepolt von Slandersberg, the chief bear hunter, on horseback with five bears trailing him. 3) Number 15. Vice-marshal Eberpach bearing a plaque for the cupbearer, cook, barber, tailor, and cobbler. 4) Number 21. A large camel driven by a small boy carrying the leader's verse. 5) Number 22. Master Paul Hofhaimer and another musician on a low plow car bearing an organ. This woodcut connects with number 21 above via a harness on the camel. 6) Number 37. Five men of the Gefecht with bucklers with unsheathed long swords. 7) Number 40. Five men of the Gefecht with ordinary swords in the scabbards, all wearing wreaths. 8) Number 41. Herr Anthony von Yfan, chief tourneyer, on horseback bearing a banner which was to have been inscribed with verse regarding knightly tournaments. 9) Number 42. Following Yfan, five tourneyers abreast in good order on foot in full armor. Follows the woodcut featuring Yfan just above. 10) Number 44. Printed number 43 in upper right corner. Herr Wolfgang von Polhaim on horseback bearing a banner for Rennen, a type of jousting with pointed lances and lighter armor. 11) Number 45. Italian jousters, five abreast in good order, on horseback. 12) Number 47. Hohenzeuggestech, high-saddled jousters, five abreast on horseback. 13) Number 48. Five jousters in leg armor, on horseback, the horses covered in leather, grasping their lances beneath the round guards, heads wreathed. 14) Number 49. Italian jousters, five on horseback, with murneten, round jousts with circular guards. 15) Number 51. Printed number 50 in upper right corner. Geschifftrennen, five men on horseback with shields that jump into the air in pieces. 16) Number 55. Printed number 49 in upper right corner. Schwiefrennen, showing five men on horseback, indicating an oblique line of attack. 17) Number 73. The Austrian hereditary territories of Duino, Oberwaldsee, and Unterwaldsee represented by three horsemen bearing banners of the territories. 18) Number 74. The Austrian hereditary territories of Burgendt and Zeringen represented by two horsemen bearing banners of the territories. 19) Number 75. The Austrian hereditary territories of Bohemian inheritance and English inheritance represented by two horsemen bearing banners of the territories. 20) Number 76. The Austrian hereditary territories of Portuguese inheritance and Moravian inheritance represented by two horsemen bearing banners of the territories. 21) Number 78. A group of Burgundian fifers in good order with bombardons, a type of bass tuba. 22) Number 85. Printed number 84 in upper right corner. The Burgundian territories of Charolois, Maconois, Auxerrois represented by three men on horseback carrying banners. 23) Number 114. Printed number 97 in upper right corner. Prisoners from lands where Maximilian waged war, this scene showing ten men carrying a statue of a woman with angel's wings, and each of these women carrying a palm or some other symbol of triumph. 24) Number 126. Printed number 104 in upper right corner. Meritorious soldiers, showing a man on foot carrying a banner, followed by two ranks of arquebusiers, five men in each. 25) Number 129. Printed 107 in the upper right corner. The people of Calicut, represented by a man in a loin cloth, wearing a laurel wreath, astride a giant elephant, followed by representations of the people of Calicut, naked like Indians. 26) Number 131. Printed number 109 in the upper right corner. More people of Calicut with spears, some naked, some dressed in the Moorish fashion, all wearing laurel wreaths, and including a cow, a small child, and two women carrying baskets of fruit atop their heads. "In its boldness of conception, its epic proportions, and its wealth of content, the TRIUMPH OF MAXIMILIAN I stands as one of the world's richest and most unusual monuments of art...In one splendid sheet after another it portrays the achievements and aspirations, the dreams of eternity and the earthly pleasures, of the most colorful and paradoxical ruler of his time...Fond as he was of entertainments and traditions that harked back to medieval times, still this 'last of the knights' (born 1459, dies 1519) possessed a sense of the power of publicity unique in his day. He saw clearly how he could enhance the glory of himself and his Hapsburg dynasty through the widest possible dissemination of inspiring words and pictures. The woodcut was the ideal medium for his purpose...It is impossible to overestimate the importance of the TRIUMPH as a primary source for the history of costume, musical instruments, heraldry, and military and sporting weapons, armor, and appurtenances; for portraits of individual historical characters; and for hundreds of authentic and unusual ornamental motifs" - Appelbaum. An excellent cross-section of Maximilian I's incredible pictorial celebration of his reign, extraordinarily rare in the market for even a single example.

      Lancaster, 1777. Old folds. Small separation at center cross-fold. Old 2 1/2 x 2-inch stain in center. Very good. In a half morocco box. A remarkable circular letter from the Pennsylvania Council of Safety, authorizing the seizure of goods from American Loyalists so that those items could be given to the bedraggled Continental Army, which would soon be wintering at nearby Valley Forge. Patriotic Americans are also asked to give what they can of arms and clothing for the war effort. We are unable to locate any other copies of this rare and significant directive. The Pennsylvania Council of Safety evacuated Philadelphia when the British occupied the city in September 1777. On October 21, 1777, having removed to Lancaster, they issued a proclamation authorizing the confiscation of the estates and property of any American who fought in the British army, and of anyone who provided material comfort and support to the British occupiers. The present proclamation, also issued from Lancaster, directs eleven men, whose names are provided in manuscript, to collect goods that would be of the utmost importance for Washington's troops at Valley Forge. Among the specific items listed are "arms and accoutrements, blankets, woolen cloth, linceywoolsey, linnen, shoes and stockings for the army." These goods were to be collected from any inhabitant of the county "as have not taken the oath of allegiance and abjuration, or who have aided or assisted the enemy." Patriotic Americans able to contribute goods for the Continental Army are also asked to give what they can. The specific county in which these collections are to take place has not been filled in in this copy of the Council's circular letter. Added in a contemporary manuscript hand at the conclusion of the printed text is the following note: "all officers civilian & military are hereby required and directed on application from the Commissioners above or any of them to be aiding and assisting in the execution of these orders." The text is signed in print by Thomas Wharton, Junior, President of the Council of Safety. No copies of this broadside circular are listed in Evans, Bristol, Shipton & Mooney, NAIP, or ESTC. Rare, and highly evocative of the deprivation that Washington's troops faced at Valley Forge in the winter of 1777-78, and the desperate measures taken to support them.

      Philadelphia, 1777. Early 19th-century sheep and marbled boards. Rubbed, some wear on spine ends and corners. Text uniformly toned. Very slight paper nicks at edge of title-leaf, slight paper loss at corners of a few index leaves. With the signature of Richard Bland Lee on the titlepage. In a blue half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. This volume of the Journals of Congress is one of the rarest of the series issued from 1774 to 1788. It covers the exciting events of 1776, culminating with the Declaration of Independence on July 4, an early printing of which appears here, as well as all of the other actions of Congress for the year. It is thus a vital document in the history of American independence and the American Revolution. On September 26, 1776, Congress had authorized printer Robert Aitken to produce a uniform edition of their Journals. Aitken combined the Journals of the First and Second Continental Congresses of 1774 and 1775 (originally published by Bradford in two separate volumes) into one volume, to form Volume I of the series. The material from the first four months of 1776 was reprinted by Aitken from the monthly issues he had produced at the time strictly for the use of Congress, in an edition of eighty copies (the so called "Cartridge Paper" edition). In early 1777 he produced the rest of this volume, as Volume II of the series. This was completed in the spring or summer, and marks the first publication of the June-December 1776 Journals. According to Aitken's account, 532 copies were completed. In the fall of 1777 the British campaign under Howe forced the Congress to evacuate Philadelphia, moving first to Lancaster and then to York, Pennsylvania. The fleeing Congress took with it what it could, but, not surprisingly, was unable to remove many copies of its printed Journals, which would have been bulky and difficult to transport. Presumably, many left behind in Philadelphia were destroyed by the British, accounting for its scarcity today. The 1776 Journals record some of the most stirring moments of the Crisis of the Revolution. Much attention is devoted to the actual organization of a civil government to manage a war. On May 15, Richard Henry Lee's proposal of independence is recorded, and the concurrence of various other states appears throughout June before the formal motion was made on July 2. The Declaration of Independence appears in full on pages 241- 246. Besides this, there is a vast quantity of material of military and political importance. This volume belonged to Richard Bland Lee, a son of one of the most prominent Virginia families of the Revolutionary era. His older brother Henry ("Light Horse Harry") was one of the most noted cavalry commanders of the Revolution, and his other older brother Charles was Attorney General of the United States from 1795 to 1801. Richard himself served in the Virginia House of Delegates in 1784-88, then served as one of the first U.S. Representatives in 1789-95. His adherence to the Federalist party led to his defeat as a Congressman, but did not interfere with his warm personal friendship with James Madison, which continued throughout his life. The latter part of his life was devoted to managing his estates in tidewater Virginia. A nice association copy of the first Congressional printing of the Declaration of Independence.

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.

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.

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.
