GESSNER, SALOMON
Zurich: Chez l'auteur, 1777. First French Quarto Edition. This is a desirable copy of an important late 18th century French illustrated book, a happy marriage of fashionable poetry and beautiful engravings, in a binding that carefully imitates the Neoclassical designs and tools of master binder Christian Kalthoeber. Gessner (1730-88) was a painter and poet from Zurich, who hoped to renew the ancient genre of the eclogue. According to Britannica, he was "the most successful and typical representative of a literary rococo movement. His pastorals were translated into 20 languages, including Welsh, Latin, and Hebrew." He was also an equally talented artist, and the preface to this book is quick to note that all the etchings are of his own imagination and executed by his own hand. Gessner's close attention to detail and liberal use of dense crosshatching give each plate an intensity that is almost tactile, with the pale figures in high relief against the deeply etched, dark backgrounds. The binding is an excellent imitation of the work of German émigré binder Christian Kalthoeber, "considered during his day to be the finest binder in the world," according to Maggs Catalogue 966. One of Kalthoeber's most recognizable designs, used on at least seven bindings, employed a roll-tool border enclosing a central panel with garlands and pateras across the top, palmettes along the sides, and at the foot, two mermaids with curling tails flanking an urn. Examples of this can be seen in the sources cited above. Here, the mermaids are thicker and less refined in form, and the t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paine, Thomas]
[Philadelphia: Printed and Sold by Styner and Cist, 1777. First edition, second state. pp. [2], 27-56. 1 vols. 8vo. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, bound in antique style, spine gilt lettered. Title-page trimmed, slightly repaired at fore-edge. Light tanning and dampstaining. About very good. First edition, second state. pp. [2], 27-56. 1 vols. 8vo. The very rare third part of the series by Paine, written to boost the morale of American troops. The pamphlet is dated "Philadelphia, April 19, 1777" at the end of the text. The verso of the title-page prints proclamations by Gen. George Washington dated April 6 and 8, 1777, offering pardons to all army deserters who rejoin their corps before May 15, 1777. Paine thus wrote the pamphlet in mid-April 1777.In the text Paine predicts that Philadelphia will be a target of the British armies, as indeed it was that summer. "Britain, like a gamester nearly ruined, hath now put all her losses into one bet, and is playing a desperate game for the total. If she wins, she wins from ME my life; she wins the continent as the forfeited property of rebels; the right of taxing those that are left as reduced subjects; and the power of binding them as slaves." Paine goes on to argue that complete independence is the only path forward.The separate pamphlet editions of THE AMERICAN CRISIS, all of which are rare, were printed in various cities and towns, and all seem to be distinguished by having caption titles only. The older references, such as Evans and Howes, describe the Philadelphia printings of Parts I-III, but later fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Astronom u. erster Bürgermeister von Paris, wurde während der Franz. Revolution auf der Guillotine hingerichtet. Bailly wurde bekannt durch die Berechnung der Umlaufbahn des Halleyschen Kometen. Sein vorl. Hauptwerk erschien 1775-87 in 5 Bänden, wurde aber nicht komplett ins Deutsche übersetzt. Er vertritt hier die Theorie, dass die Wissenschaft die meisten Entdeckungen einem in einer Sintflut unterge-gangenen Volk verdanke, was u.a. einen Streit mit Voltaire auslöste. "Beym Einbruche der großen Fluth flüchteten auch einige Menschen auf die hohen Gebirge Asiens [.] die darunter befindlichen Gelehrten, deren Wissenschaft also bloß in Traditionen bestand, wurden zu Regenten gedachter neuen Colonien ernannt und, wegen ihrer Wissenschaft, von den übrigen unwissenden Menschen vergöttert."

Francesco & Paolo SANTINI
Venezia, 1777. Grande carta in sei fogli incentrata sul mar Nero che interessa, oltre ovviamente alla Turchia, Ucraina, Russia e Caucaso. Unita, forma una grande mappa che si estende dal Egeo settentrionale al mar Caspio, dalle dimensioni totali di 1550x730 mm. Si basa sull'analoga opera in 3 fogli che Giovanni Antonio Rizzi Zannoni pubblica nel 1774. Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca ai confini, mm 440x570 ogni foglio, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Fine example of the first state Santini's 6-sheet map of the Northern Part of the Ottoman Empire, centered on the Black Sea, published in Venice in 1779. The map was late reprinted by Giovanni Antonio Remondini. Santini's map is based upon Giovanni Rizzi-Zannoni's map of 1774. Rizzi-Zannoni's 3 sheet map of the Northern Ottoman Empire shows the Empire at the tail end of its centuries of control of Southeastern Europe. The map extends north and east to the Caspian Sea and Cossack Regions, and west to Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria, providing a fantastic geographical and topographical depiction of the region. Includes a fine decorative cartouche. The 6 sheet map was bound into the Atlas Universel. While there is some overlapping geography on the horizontal sheets, the sheets can be cut and joined to form a 6-sheet map approximately 60 inches wide and 34 inches tall. Copperplate with original outline colour, 6 sheet map, unjoined, with full margins, light waterstain in the lower white margins, otherwise very good condition. 1550 730mm

Continental Congress]
Philadelphia: Robert Aitken, 1777. [2],513,[23]pp. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sauthier, Claude Joseph
Published by Permission of the Rt. Honble. The Commissioners of Trade & Plantations by Wm. Faden, London, 1777. Copper-engraved map, with period outline color. Sheet size: 22 1/2 x 15 1/8 inches. Some light old surface soiling, else very good. This is one of a small handful of Revolutionary War battle plans that relate to the City of New York. Sauthier's delineation of upper Manhattan was the most accurate and detailed to date. After the British occupation of New York, Gen. Washington evacuated Manhattan except for Fort Washington at the northern tip of the island. The British under Gen. Howe moved north and attacked the main American army at White Plains in October 1776. But the Americans still remained in control of Fort Washington behind their forward lines. On November 16 the British mounted a six-column attack on the fort that forced the patriots to surrender. Washington's decision not to evacuate Fort Washington was one of his most serious tactical errors of the war. Almost three thousand men were taken prisoner, and the British seized large quantities of supplies and weapons. Four days later Gen. Cornwallis was sent to take Fort Lee on the opposite New Jersey shore, but the Americans stationed there had retreated. Sauthier illustrated the four phases of the attack with the letters A through D. The key at right identifies the first attack as that by Gen. Knyphausen, the second by Matthews and Cornwallis, the third as a feint, and the fourth by Lord Percy. CUMMING, BRITISH MAPS OF COLONIAL AMERICA, pp.72-74.

A detailed scholarly study of ancient sources for the history and geography of the Canary Islands, attempting to prove that the Portuguese discovered them before Islamic explorers, and that Islamic geographers knew them only through classical Greek and Roman sources. The main text is followed by extensive notes from a wide variety of sources and transcriptions of numerous primary sources, some in Greek or Arabic. In passing it also provides a wealth of information about navigation in the Mediterranean and Atlantic by classical Greek and Roman and by Islamic explorers. While Macedo's claim for Malocello's discovery of the Canaries in 1336 is no longer accepted, the Islamic geographer Idrisi noted a Portuguese voyage to the Canaries already before 1154.In fine condition and wholly untrimmed, giving very large margins.
