1777. Plate 54: This plate shows neoclassical designs and ornaments. Copperplate engraving on a verge type of hand-laid paper. Description: This rare antique print originates from 'Designs for Neoclassical Ornaments' by Michael Angelo Pergolesi. London 1777-1792: Published By the Author. Broadsheet folio with 67 etched plates by and after Pergolesi.Artists and Engravers: Michael Angelo Pergolesi was an Italian decorative artist from the 18th century who worked mainly in England. Biographical details are almost entirely lacking, but like Cipriani he was brought, or attracted, to England by Robert Adam after his famous continental tour. He worked so extensively for the Adams', and his designs are so closely typical of much upon which their reputation rests, that it is impossible to doubt his influence upon their style. His range, like theirs, was catholic. He designed furniture, mantelpieces, ceilings, chandeliers, doors and mural ornament with equal felicity, and as an artist in plaster work in low relief he was unapproached in his day. Condition: Good/excellent. General age-related toning and light staining from handling as visible on image. Some tears in the margins, not affecting image. Irregular left edge from binding.

n.d.. Address leaf franked <I>“Public Service / Majr Genl St. Clair,”</I> addressed by him to <I>“General Irwine / at / Carlisle,”</I> 13” x 8.5”, address panel 7” x 3.5”. On laid paper, professionally silked for preservation. Fine condition.<br /><br />On February 19, 1777, Arthur St. Clair was appointed Major General by Congress and was given the command of Fort Ticonderoga. In 1778, he was court-martialed for the loss of the Fort, but was exonerated and returned to duty, although he was no longer given any battlefield commands. On March 4, 1791, Arthur St. Clair was promoted to Major General by President Washington and was placed in command of the Army. In a March 19, 1791, letter to Lafayette, President George Washington writes, “Your friend, General St. Clair resumes his functions as Major General.” Ostensibly, even though St. Clair had been a Major General since being appointed by the Continental Congress in 1777, Pres. Washington thought it proper to issue a presidential commission as Major General as he “resumes his functions.” He has franked this address leaf as “Majr Genl. St. Clair.” General Irvine lived in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where most letters to him were sent during and after the Revolutionary War. It is interesting to note, that in the published letters of George Washington to Gen. Irvine, his name is misspelled “Irwine” as St. Clair has penned on this address leaf. <br /><br />On November 4, 1791, Major General St. Clair, 1st Governor of the Northwest Territory since 1788, led an expedition against the Indians that resulte … [Click Below for Full Description]

BAILLY, (Jean Sylvain). Astrologie - Astronomie - Chinesische Astronomie - Sternkarte
Leipzig, im Schwickertschen Verlage, 1777. 2 Teile in 1 Band. 8 Blatt, 334 Seiten, 1 Blatt; 399 Seiten, 2 Blatt, 3 gefalt. Kupfertafeln. Schlichter Karton der Zeit 23 x 13 cm, etwas berieben und bestoßen, gutes Exemplar Übersetzt von Christian Ernst Wünsch (Verf. von "Horus oder astrognostisches Endurtheil über die Offenbarung Johannis"), der hier auch einen Vorbericht beigibt (9 S.). - Jean-Sylvain Bailly (1736-1793), franz. 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." (Wünsch) - Inhalt: Von den Erfindern der Sternkunde u. von dem Alter desselben; Von den ältesten astronomischen Entdeckungen; Ueber die Sternkunde vor der Sündfluth; Von der Sternkunde kurz nach der Sündfluth u. von den astronomischen Kenntnissen der Indianer u.

Arnaud de Ronsil, George:
Straßburg, Amand König, 1777. Arnaud de Rosnil (1698-1774), bedeutender französischer Chirurg, Mitglied der Académie Royale de Chirurgie de Paris und der Corporation of Surgeons of London, hatte schon 1750 in London eine "Dissertation on hermaphrodites" veröffentlicht, die dann in erweiterter Form 1768 in die "Memoires de Chirurgie, avec quelques remarques historiques." aufgenommen wurde und 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." - die meisten Abbildungen sin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aix, Esprit David, 1777, plein maroquin fauve XIXe, dos à nerfs. -Verso de la 1ère planche restauré avec du papier de l'époque (très lég. manque de papier dans le coin inf. gauche de la partie gravée). in-12 de 1 portrait-II-220 pp. + 13 pl. dépl. h.t. (dont 1 pl. de musique) ; Edition originale.Cat. Rouard 3285; Conlon 77: 1045."Cet ouvrage est de Gaspard Grégoire, natif d’Aix.Les figures, [représentant les processions, déguisements, chars, danses ], ont été dessinées par Paul Grégoire, un de ses fils, et gravées par Gaspard, frère de Paul. Ce sont les deux fils de Grégoire qui sont les inventeurs de la peinture sur velours. Les cérémonies de la Fête-Dieu furent suspendues par la Révolution. Elles n’avaient plus eu lieu depuis 1789, lorsqu’en 1803, sous la mairie de M. Sallier, elles furent célébrées avec beaucoup de pompe, par Monseigneur Champion de Cicé, archevêque nommé d’après le concordat, et au milieu d’un grand concours d’étrangers. En 1807, la princesse Pauline Borghese, ayant passé quelque temps à Aix, la fête fut de nouveau célébrée à son occasion. Les cérémonies eurent encore lieu en 1811, le dimanche de la Trinité, 9 juin, pour la naissance du roi de Rome. A l’arrivée de Monsieur, comte d’Artois, à Aix, le 29 septembre 1814, on fit une partie de ces cérémonies, et notamment le Guet. En 1823, une visite de la duchesse d’Angoulême fut le prétexte d’une nouvelle procession; enfin, en 1851, la fête fut célébrée dans tous ses détails à l’occasion du passage à Aix du Prince-Président."

Desain 1777 9 volumes In-8, demi-velin moderne, dos lisse.

Il fut professeur de Étienne-Louis Boullée, Claude Nicolas Ledoux et Alexandre Théodore Brongniart. Bon état d'occasion Livres à planches
